It Runs Family

By Amy McLaren My husband and I began the charity World Teacher Aid several years ago, really not even imagining how big it would grow (and in such little time). We are so grateful to those who have donated to our cause of helping bring education to those in Developing Areas. Without a community, a team of mentors and our board, we would have never reached so many children so quickly. Just this past July, we got back from our second Donor Trip to Kenya. We spent two weeks taking some of our Donors, where they got a chance to not only see the amazing wildlife of the Masai Mara, but more importantly they got a chance to meet and live with the community they have helped. Below you will see an article written by Molly Bader (A donor who came on our 2011 trip). Molly interviewed Justin Bowen this past June as he was gearing up to join us a second time, this time with his wife and daughter. Anyone with a TV has seen advertisements for charities and noble causes the world over. Anyone with a heart has been moved by them. For Justin Bowen, he’s felt compelled to give back to the world in a meaningful way but was unsure whether to get involved in his own back yard or half way around the world. It was a conversation with fellow World Teacher Aid participant, David Frey, which convinced him to get involved. After seeing David’s safari videos and hearing the excitement in his voice about

the trip, he was sold that this would be a moving trip for him, and his 12-year-old daughter, Shayla. “Shayla was getting to be the age and maturity where can could understand the drastic differences between the 3rd world and the access to what she has. I felt this would be a great opportunity for her to experience helping out and serving others.” They had just come from two and a half months in Europe, with scheduled visits to everything, and being in each other’s company quite a bit. Justin decided that when they got to Africa, he was going to be hands off and let Shayla manage her own time. With the freedom to do what she wanted, Shayla jumped right into forming lasting relationships with several of the kids at the camp. Justin was equal parts moved by the existing bond within the community of Giwa farms as he was the bonds his daughter was building with them. “Seeing her step up her interactions with other people, it was a confirmation to me that she’s an awesome, amazing person. The excitement and joy that she was finding in and growing her personality, her outlook…she just blossomed. The trip helped our relationship. I gained a lot of respect for her as an individual, not just as my kid.” The evolution in their relationship has stayed with them, despite the trip being ten months ago. This summer, Justin is returning with Shayla again, as well as his wife, Brooke. The whole experience is clearly one

Shayla Bowen on her trip to Kenya. about family for Justin. He recalls standing on the construction site, talking about dedicating the administrative block to his father who died seven years ago. The foreman appeared a moment later with a K. Ryan Bowen plaque. “My father was incredible with children. He was all about encouraging kids to step towards their passion, to go for it. And that’s what school is all about. It was cool to hold the plaque and know that it was going on a school that would be changing kids’ lives.” To anyone even halfway considering going, he recounts the story of Shayla. “We had spent two and a half months in beautiful Europe, which

she loved. Visiting museums and every landmark. When I asked her what experience of that summer she would go back and do over again, “Africa!” is always her first response.” **If you’re interested in learning more about World Teacher Aid and would like to help support our programs.

By Dave Scott With all the folks involved who helped out with the Annaleise Carr Lake Crossing, it is hard to figure out where to start. That’s the great part about Norfolk folks, they tend to get involved and help out where they can. Runner’s’ Den Port Dover, North Shore Runners, Swimmers and Cyclists… are the absolute best group of folks! Everyone helped, from every aspect… training, fundraising, yard sales, t-shirts, bracelets, crew training, food, literally anything and everything… these amazing folks helped every step of the way. From day one there has always been McKiee & Farrar, Gair and Tri-County Insurance Brokers Ltd. They have been assisting anyway they could, promoting Annaleise’s swim through regular updates in the Hub, to having their staff volunteer, to making major donations ($10,000)… they have stepped up big time! Where would we have been without Ross Keegan, heading up all of our media relations, ‘Thank you Ross!’ We could not have done it without Scotiabank Simcoe, who helped collect funds and also made a large donation. Thank you for your community involvement! I remember thinking back to the

Ed and family at Bridge Yachts Ltd… lending us two Zodiacs, totally outfitted for the adventure, no stone left unturned… letting us use the two boats all summer to prepare… plus helping with the parade. Eising Greenhouses & Garden Centre, was one of the first businesses to help Annaleise with a fundraising day… and they kept on helping… decorating the float, stage, and Aud with their wonderful floral arrangements... all to make for a very special day. CD 98.9 for all their updates helping to keep the community informed during the swim and after… excellent! Norfolk County for stepping up and recognizing Annaleise’s accomplishment and renaming the pool, the Annaleise Carr Aquatic Centre… to all the staff who volunteered and helped with the parade and at the Aud… RE7 Performance Recovery Drink…

Following a highly successful workshop last year, the Erie Brain Injury Association and Bachmann Personal Injury Law have again partnered this year to present the 3rd annual Brain Injury Workshop. We are pleased that other community minded businesses have decided to support our efforts and for that we want to say a big THANK YOU to Scotiabank, Sun Life Financial, North Shore Runners and Marlin Travel! The workshop will take place on Saturday, September 15, 2012, from 9am to 1pm at the Talbot Gardens in Simcoe. This year’s topic is “Hope”. It is inspired by Troy Adams’ goal: to help individuals with acquired brain injuries (ABI) through “Hope, Prevention and Education”. Next year’s workshop will focus on “prevention” and the year after will focus on “education”. Our speakers are a mix of extraordinary people who have suffered brain injuries; as well as professionals whose job it is to treat and deal with survivors. Our professional speakers will educate our audience on the resources

available to injured individuals in and outside our community. Our survivors will speak about their experiences and what it took to not only survive, but to rebuild their lives. Bianca Heaslip is a Speech Language Pathologist who focuses on the assessment and treatment of speech and language disorders. Ms. Heaslip has devoted significant time to researching and utilizing a sensory awareness therapy with the severe acquired brain injury population. Stacie Dertinger began her career as a counsellor with the Norfolk Association for Community Living in Simcoe. She is a Case Facilitator and has expertise in goal setting, assessments and individualized rehabilitation planning. Jen Corsini is an ABI Survivor from our community. A vicious attack a few years ago left her in a coma for 3 weeks and facing years of surgery, treatment and rehabilitation. Despite the trauma, and the ongoing struggles, Ms. Corsini finds time to speak about her ordeal and tries to help victims of spousal abuse and brain injury.

Melanie Crawford is an ABI Survivor and a certified instructor, facilitator and motivational coach. She started her career as a comedian and brings to her presentation a unique brand of humour and sense of humanity. Jessica Vandenbussche holds a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology. She is an Activities Coordinator with the Delhi Community Health Centre, where she develops and implements fitness and wellness program for seniors; and also works with students at the University of Waterloo where she mentors and assists students who experience academic, physical and emotional concerns or conflicts. Troy Adams has battled the effects of brain injury since the age of 16 when he was involved in a serious

car crash. After years of struggles, Mr. Adams has found his calling – helping others who have suffered brain injury. To raise funds this year, Mr. Adams has undertaken the monumental task of running across Canada, a projected 9 month journey that will see him run from St. John’s, NL to Victoria, BC. This year’s Brain Injury Workshop promises to be the best yet! Come out to hear some fabulous speakers, meet and chat with other survivors and their family members, and learn about Life After Brain Injury. There will be refreshments and door prizes and admission is free. For further information please call (519) 428-8090 or e-mail czammit@ bachmannlaw.ca.

By Dave Scott Mary Taylor is about to embark on a 500 km bike ride to help kids in Norfolk County. Last Friday, Annaleise Carr stopped by the Canadian Tire Store in Simcoe to wish Mary good luck. Mary, who is the owner of our local Canadian Tire, is set to participate in the Canadian Tire Jumpstart Pedal for Kids Cycling Tour, which starts in Kingston on September 17th, ending in Niagara Falls on the 21st. The cool part about what Mary is doing, is all the money she raises will go to our local Jumpstart Chapter, here in Norfolk, 100% of your donation stays in your community! Mary is a very passionate person when it comes to children and it shines through when she sees her grandchildren… her eyes light up. When she and Annaleise met, there was that mutual level of respect for each other and their commitment to helping others. Jumpstart is one of the best-kept secrets in our community and countless other ones across the country. The Jumpstart website, www.jumpstart.canadiantire. ca, states, ‘One in three Canadian families cannot afford to enrol their children in sport or recreation activities (Vision Critical 2011). That means that many kids are missing out. Canadian Tire Jumpstart is dedicated to removing barriers, so children can participate in organized sport and recreation. We see it as equipping kids for life, because participation in organized sport and recreation increases a child’s chance for success in life. They discover and participate. They gain self-confidence. They develop self-esteem. They learn leadership skills. Their lives become richer. This is the power of Canadian Tire Jumpstart. Help us give kids a sporting chance! Donate today.’

H

Go to www.ctjumpstart.ca/Marytaylorfornorfolkkids and donate on line.

Now that you understand why Mary wants to help, you need to know that Mary is a woman who is dedicated, who follows her heart and understands the importance of athletics in a child’s life… Mary herself has spent her life enjoying lots of sports and continues to ride her bike whenever she can… speaking of bikes, the bike Mary will ride this week was a gift from her best friend, who has passed away from cancer this last year. This ride will be special to Mary for the kids of Norfolk and to remember a dear friend. If you would like to donate and help Mary on her quest to raise $5000 for our local kids… stop by the Canadian Tire Store in Simcoe and make a donation or go to www.ctjumpstart. ca/Marytaylorfornorfolkkids and donate on line. If we all give a little… a lot of little ones will benefit.

ealth and Fitness Expo

By Dave Scott Early Saturday morning, the sky was well, ugly, the rain and the wind were creating havoc and I kinda’ wondered if the outside events at the Port Dover Health and Fitness Expo would be cancelled… but by 9am the rain and wind had died down and everything was a go. Of course Lirum and I participated in the 8 km run, which Tommy Land won in the men’s and Liana Thompson won in the ladies. Excellent run! Many kids participated in the 2 km Fun Race (to participate, families brought non-perishable items for

runner’s’ den • 361 main street, port dover 519.583.3100 • www.northshorerunners.com

iscovering Birds of Norfolk With George and Vic

Prothonotary Warbler By George E Pond I remember a few years ago when Vic Gibbons was the guest birder for the Long Point Bird Observatory during Bird Studies Canada's annual Baillie Birdathon. We were standing by the side of a small woodland pond, deep in the heart of my favourite forest "Backus Woods". The pond was filled with buttonwood and the stumps of a few dead trees. Suddenly we heard the distinctive "Sweet, Sweet, Sweet, Sweet, Sweet" song of a Prothonotary Warbler. Prothonotary Warblers are extremely rare in Ontario with only a handful of breeding pairs known, mostly along the northern shore of Lake Erie. They nest in tree cavities but will readily accept nesting boxes

Joan Mouland

if placed close to the surface of the water in proper woodland habitat We are so fortunate that these birds sometimes nest in Backus Woods. Years ago, in another part of Norfolk, I photographed one of these birds at its nest cavity. My photo shows only the bird and the nest hole. Vic Gibbons has not only captured the beauty of this bird with his painting "Prothonotary Warbler" but has captured the very essence of that magical woodland pond in Backus Woods where he saw and heard a Prothonotary Warbler. Vic has donated the original of this painting to the Long Point Conservation Authority. It hangs in the visitor centre at Backus. I hope you get a chance to see it.

co Stay

By Dave Scott A few weeks back, my son and I spent the night out at Long Point Eco-Adventures. It was a fantastic stay! Our summer had been very busy and my son and I really did not get a lot of guy time… so when the opportunity presented itself to camp out in one of the Wilderness Suites at Eco-Adventures, away we went. Well who am I kidding, it was kinda luxury camping. The suites were unbelievable… electricity, queen size bed, washroom, outdoor shower, front deck, fridge, and heating pads in the bed… it was perfect! Plus, to top it off, later in the evening we were able to enjoy the astronomy tour. It was outstanding! Ian who led our group did a fantastic job, making the evening very fun and educational. He explained the program in easy to understand terms… must have known I was coming. My son understood what he was saying… but for me, I had to pay extra attention. The night sky was incredible to look at through the massive telescope that sits atop the Eco building. After the program, we headed down by the fire just to sit for a bit. It was nice just to relax and talk for a few minutes. It wasn’t long before we were both yawning and we headed back to our luxurious suite for a good night’s rest. At the crack of dawn, my son was up testing the outdoor shower… he loved it! Next up we grabbed some breakfast at the main tent… and then it was back to reality and work. The nice part was, it was just a ten-minute drive home. I stopped in a day or two later to catch up with Adam Van Paassen at Long Point EcoAdventures and talk about the season that they had just had. Adam explained that this season has been the busiest to date, and with the weather cooperating, zipping and suite rentals will continue on. He told me that Payden Shrubb-Elliott has worked extra hard to grow the school program to a new level… also with the work Bill Baskerville and Ian Mulholland have done, the astronomy program has reached new heights… and we cannot forget the outstanding performance of the actors, who again this summer performed, The Witch Doctor of Walsingham… I missed it again but Claire and Adam... I promise... promise... promise I will get there next season! Of course we have to mention the blossoming of the Burning Kiln Winery across the road which has developed a deep connection with Long Point Eco-Adventures and is a must visit for any adult interested in the winemaking process. Boy, these guys at Eco-Adventures sure have come a long way! I remember my first visit, I guess three or four years ago now, the zip was up and going, the building was still in progress… it was just the beginning. Now looking back, it is truly amazing how far Long Point Eco-Adventures has come… awesome! If you get the opportunity to stay at the suites, go for it. It is a wonderful experience for the family… close to home… kinda like a mini holiday… you feel like you are in a different place in the world… so go visit, spend a few bucks at home and enjoy what is in our own back yard. One more thing, you may want to check out Mycologist Bob Bowles, Naturalist Robin Tapley, and the Blue Elephant's Executive Chef Heather Pond on a wilderness and culinary adventure of mushroom hunting, wine pairing, and culinary delights from the diverse regions of the Carolinian forests. While foraging through the forest participants will learn to identify a variety of edible and non-edible species of mushrooms. Upon return, the Executive Chef will demonstrate how to prepare a variety of wild mushroom recipes. These recipes will be tasted along with a pairing of the finest red and white wines from award-winning Burning Kiln Winery. Mushroom Foray Day Program runs 9:30am - 3:30pm September 19 and September 22. Mushroom Foray Vacation Package runs September 18-20 and 21-23 and includes the Mushroom Foray day program, 2-night stay in luxury Wilderness Suites, and much more!

‘Give Back to Hospital to Help Others’

Giving back to the community within the policing region is very important and still a priority for the now disassembled Haldimand-Norfolk Police Association who recently delivered a generous $5,000.00 donation to the Norfolk General Hospital Foundation which will go towards the Operating Room Revitalization Project. Originally formed in 1974 when both Haldimand and Norfolk counties had regional police services, the Haldimand-Norfolk Police Association was the lead labour negotiator for area officers and civilian staff. “We chose to give back to NGH, two other area hospitals and Camp Trillium,” said Dave Stelptra, who presented Julie Powell, director of development with the $5,000.00 donation. “Someday I’ll be in this hospital,” said Shirley Kazlauskas, who once worked as a dispatcher for the regional force. “We are very happy that the Haldimand-Norfolk Police Association chose

With this donation you are definitely helping others and contributing to quality health care in our community.” The Norfolk General Hospital Foundation has nearly completed fundraising for the Operating Room Revitalization project thanks to generous donations such as this.

orfolk Nature otes

By MARG WERDEN What’s all the buzz about?

I have a love-hate relationship with wasps: I know they play an important role in pollinating plants, but I’m not impressed with how aggressive they can be, especially since I am allergic to their stings. This is the time of year when wasps become more noticeable as late summer/early fall is when the colony’s population peaks. It is also the time of year when wasp nests can be found more easily as they have become quite large. We found one such nest in a hedge near our garden recently. The nest was built by a colony of baldfaced hornets, one of several species of yellowjackets found throughout North America. This insect has been misnamed because it is not actually a “true” hornet. A hornet is a type of wasp, but not all wasps are hornets. There is only one species of hornet in North America, the European hornet, which was accidentally introduced here. All the yellowjackets in the genus Dolichovespula build their nests in bushes and trees in the characteristic football shape. Although several sources say that the nests are usually constructed at least three feet (one metre) off the ground, the nest we found is only about one foot (30 cm) up in the bushes. The baldfaced hornet gets is name from the ivory or white markings found on its face. The black thorax, legs and abdomen also have some white markings on them. This insect can range in size from ¾ to one inch (13 to 20 mm), with the queen being the largest member of the colony. Fertilized queens are the only

L

members of the colony that survive the winter, overwintering in protected places such as hollow trees, rock piles, attics and walls. When she becomes active in the spring, she begins to build a nest by collecting cellulose from weathered and rotting wood and mixing it with her saliva to make a paste. She then spreads this mixture out with her mandibles and legs and allows it to dry into the paper-like substance that makes up the nest. She lays a few eggs and feeds the larvae after they hatch until they are old enough to begin nest building, food collection and feeding subsequent broods. Over the course of the summer, the colony continues to grow until there are anywhere from 100 to 400 workers in it. The grey-coloured nests can reach up to 24 inches (60 cm) in height and 18 inches (45 cm) across and are built with air vents to allow warm air to escape from the top. In the spring and early summer, when larvae production is at its height in the colony, the young are fed protein in the form of live prey, mostly flies or other yellowjackets. Later in the summer, there are fewer larvae to feed and the workers will feed on nectar, tree sap and fruit pulp. As the days begin to shorten and fall approaches, the queen begins to lay eggs which will become drones and new queens. After these eggs hatch and pupate, these fertile males and females mate, setting up the next cycle of growth. Before or shortly after the first hard frost of the fall, most of the colony, with the exception of the newly fertilized females, dies off. The potential queens hibernate underground or in other protected places until spring when the cycle begins again. The nest itself is usually abandoned by winter and will not be reused. Although both bee and wasp stings hurt, there is a difference in the stingers of bees and wasps.

This baldfaced hornet colony may contain up to 400 worker wasps, all of which will be killed off by frost in the fall with the exception of a few queen bees who will overwinter to start new colonies next spring.

Bees have a barbed stinger and can only sting once, while wasps have a smooth stinger and can attack repeatedly, making them particularly dangerous if disturbed.

ocal Bakery Supports A nnual A lzheimer’s Fundraiser

Since opening in 2008 Christine and Ken Best, owners of Christine’s Bakery in Jarvis, have continued to support the Alzheimer Society of Haldimand Norfolk’s annual Coffee Break Campaign. Coffee Break is the Alzheimer Society's major nationwide annual fundraiser where friends, co-workers and customers gather in communities across Canada to raise funds for local Alzheimer Societies. Participants at these events make a donation in exchange for a cup of coffee. The money raised stays in that province or community to help support local programs and services.

“I like that the money raised stays in HaldimandNorfolk,” says Christine. In Haldimand-Norfolk over 1,700 individuals live with some form of dementia and its occurrence is expected to increase. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia, a syndrome consisting of a number of symptoms that include loss of memory, judgement and reasoning, as well as changes in mood, behaviour and communication abilities. “We’ve known both family and friends who have been faced with Alzheimer’s disease. The Alzheimer Society is a great support to patients

The Port Dover Mosquito Sailors ended their summer of baseball on a high note by winning their year-end tournament in August.

where it is transformed to sound energy and delivered to the targeted area. The use of shock waves makes the treatment completely non-invasive and is well tolerated by patients. The effects of shock waves were discovered several decades ago after it was noticed swimmers in the Pacific Ocean were affected by the detonation of mines although they were well out of the blast radius. As the scientific community grew more understanding of the effects caused by shock waves, and medical technology advanced to a sufficient level, the medical profession was able to harness the power of shock waves for therapeutic uses. Radial Shockwave Therapy works by effectively breaking down tissue in a controlled manner to allow the targeted area to heal properly through the regeneration of blood vessels. It has shown to be successful in the treatment of chronic pain. Results can be felt after only one treatment with a large improvement becoming evident after a month’s worth of treatment, on average tissue regeneration takes place after three months. With Radial Shockwave Therapy, patients are in and out the door with treatments typically only taking between five to ten minutes.
