heatre in the Wild

By Jean Mottashed Something magical is about to happen deep in the woods in St. Williams. Something enchanting. Something delightful, artistic and memorable. It is "Spiritwalk", and believe me, you won't want to miss it. This is community theatre at its zenith -- an exciting result of two dynamic groups working together, with the help of provincial, corporate and local sponsors, to give our community much more than just a play. When Nature's Calling! Environmental Education, a non-profit organization based in Norfolk County paired up with Shadowland Theatre, a street theatre company known for their productions on Toronto Island, their fierce passions about nature and art germinated the seed for "Spiritwalk", a production that will ultimately be the most innovative and imaginative theatre experience we have seen since the performance of "Lion on the Lake" in Port Dover last summer. Over the past few weeks free workshops have been held at the school in St. Williams, wherein participants ranging in age from twelve to seniors are busy making puppets fifteen to twenty feet tall, as well as masks and costumes. They are building props and learning about stiltwalking, acting and music -- all in preparation for the play's three-night run September 26, 27 and 28 at the St. Williams Forestry Interpretive Centre. Project Co-ordinator, Julie Stone, of Long Point, says Shadowland staff act as facilitators, teaching and guiding community volunteers in all aspects of theatre arts, which in effect makes the entire production a purely local effort. "It creates a memorable experience for everyone involved, " Julie said, "because everyone contributes. It is cross-generational. You'll find seniors and children working together on the same thing." It also attracts artists, many of them local, who get involved and lend their talents in many different ways, she said. Because Nature's Calling! is dedicated to raising awareness about "nature deficit disorder" in today's "wired" generation, the play will have a strong emphasis about the healthy need to reconnect with nature and the environment. So it is no surprise that the play will begin with a little girl who, after being admonished by her parents for spending too much time on the computer, runs outside into the woods and begins a journey through the magical world of flora and fauna. The audience will follow her down a woodland trail and experience the delights of nature right along with her. As dusk falls, "lanterns will be a big feature" in the production, Julie said, along with "monarch butterflies, turkey vultures, fireflies, a badger and bird puppets on rods way up high." Everything is made out of recycled and natural materials, and the effect, Julie says, will have a

Canadian Tire SimCoe would like to extend a BIG THANK YOU to ANNALEISE CARR for dedicating the money raised from her recent Swim-a-thon to the Norfolk Chapter of Jumpstart. LeT The Swimming LeSSonS begin for aLL kidS! Henry (left) and Lucas Eising keeping it cool during their 1,400 km cycling tour.

C

ycling to End Poverty

By Dave Scott Eight kilometres into a 600 km cycling journey, Lucas Eising blew a tire, and he and his father, Henry, were at the back of the pack of 125 riders… not long after that Henry took a spill on his bike. It was not exactly the start our two fellas from Norfolk were hoping for, on their quest to ride from Ontario to Montreal with the Sea to Sea, Cycling to End Poverty Bike Tour. I sat down with Lucas and Henry late last week and chatted about the adventure they had just finished. What started out as a 600 km trip soon turned into a 1,400 km trip as the two decided to continue on with the group to New York City, staying an extra week. Oh and did I mention? They raised close to $12,000 in the process to fight poverty! Every couple of days the guys would send out a blog about their trip, where they were and what was happening, it was very cool to read and follow what was going on. There was Lucas getting into poison ivy, which made for a few itchy days of riding… or how about this? Lucas was stung on the tongue while eating one night. Henry marvels at his son’s dedication to the ride saying, Lucas never complained and continued on enjoying the ride… well okay, Henry does say that one morning his son had a little trouble getting out of bed, but as the tent started coming down around him, Lucas rose quickly. Who can blame the young man? They were up every morning at 6 am and on the road, cycling until 4 pm… a full day. At the end of the day there was still lots to be done, wash their clothes, set up the tent, grab some food, do bike maintenance and before you know it, get some shuteye. Speaking of food, the Sea to Sea riders had a food truck, actually a transport truck, that always drove ahead to set up so the cyclists would have food ready when they arrived. There was also a gear truck, which had all the tents and clothing for the riders. A repair vehicle followed the cyclists to help with any bike or health problems. This was very useful; just ask Lucas who had three blown tires during the ride. Both Henry and Lucas recognized that the organizers did a great job. As we chatted, it was obvious to see this trip had been a life-changing event for both. You

could see the two of them appreciated each other in a different light. They had left as father and son and had returned home more as friends… Henry watching the maturity and drive of his son shine through and Lucas gaining a better understanding of his father… saying his dad never got upset about anything. Which brings us to the topic of road rage… with that many riders on the road, you’ve got to think somebody driving would show some frustration. Henry said there were a few folks who weren’t all that happy to go by them, but all in all, no problems. As the ride progressed, Lucas and Henry found themselves growing stronger every day, working their way up in the pack and finishing earlier each day. The five weeks of hard training and over 1,500 km they had put in paid off, as the two were feeling great. We talked about a hill the boys climbed in New York, which was 6 km, and both proudly said they only took one break half way up for a photo. Everyone had told them how hard it would be, but once it was done Lucas and Henry knew it was clear sailing the rest of the way… well that is, except for riding through downtown New York on a Saturday morning with buses and cabs whizzing by them. Henry admits it was a little unnerving watching his son scoot around just ahead of him. The biggest impact on the two riders during the trip was witnessing how much poverty is out there. Lucas became more aware of how much he has and the importance of helping others, especially after seeing the aftermath Hurricane Sandy. He said it best when he told me, “I know there is a lot of people we have helped because we have done this!” As the ride drew to a close, the cyclists crossed the George Washington Bridge with a police escort. Henry remembers thinking to himself,

how cool is this?! Soon after, all the riders lined up and dipped their bike tires into the ocean. It was a touching moment for all as the trip that had started nine weeks earlier on the west coast came to a close. For Lucas and Henry and their two-week journey, it was a special moment. Just a year earlier Lucas had told his family he wanted to do something to help others and a year later he had done just that… very cool for a 13-year-old. The experience the father and son duo had will last a lifetime, and somewhere out there, the funds raised will help other folks keep their hopes alive. We’ll let Lucas have the last word… as Lucas looked back to last summer, he remembered thinking about how far of a trip it would be and wondering if he could do it. Whenever that thought entered his mind while he was pedalling, he would say to himself, “Don’t think, just do it! Keep pushing!” Congrats to both Henry and Lucas on an amazing journey! If you would like more information on the Sea to Sea ride, go to www. seatosea.org. Poverty Facts (from www.seatosea.org) • Nearly half the world - three billion people live on less than $2.50 a day. • 18 children die every minute due to poverty that’s one child every 3 seconds. • About 2.2 million children die each year because they are not immunized. • 400 million people do not have access to health services. • More than nine million people die worldwide each year because of hunger and malnutrition. Tour proceeds will support new and ongoing programs that break the cycle of poverty for individuals, families, and communities around the world.

Years Running!

2013 marks 10th Anniversary of Terry Fox Run in Norfolk County; 33rd National Run Hundreds of people from Norfolk County and beyond are expected to participate in The Annual Terry Fox Run on Sunday, September 15th. Since the first Terry Fox Run in Norfolk in 2003, participants have raised over $154,000 for cancer research. Since 1980, The Terry Fox Foundation (TFF) has raised more than $600 million for research into many types of cancer, while maintaining the vision and principles of Terry’s initial Marathon of Hope. The TFF boasts one of the lowest administration costs of any charity in Canada, directing 84 cents of every dollar raised to funding research. Two things kept Terry going during those 143 days in 1980: the dollars donated for research and the supporters who encouraged him along the way. Although he was forced to stop his cross-Canada run due to the recurrence of cancer, Terry’s example of courage and perseverance lives on today in Terry Foxers of all ages. At 9 years old, Chantal Vandesomple of Langton was diagnosed with leukemia. After 5 years cancer-free and considered “cured”, she was diagnosed again with leukemia and relapsed not once, but twice. She was then given a combination of chemotherapy and radiation, followed by a

stem cell transplant. “When I was diagnosed, there was an 85% cure rate. Fifteen years later the cure rate is 95%” said Vandesomple. Now 24 and 3 years cancer free, Vandesomple is entering her final year at Fanshawe College. “Without Terry and his dream, the foundation for keeping his dream alive and community support, I would not have lived past age nine.” she adds. “Treatments would be nowhere near as advanced as they are now.” On Sunday, September 15th, Terry Fox supporters, like Chantal, will join hundreds of thousands from coast to coast in working together to outrun cancer. The Norfolk County Terry Fox Run takes place at Simcoe Composite School. Registration is at 10 am, with opening ceremonies at 11 am. Participants can walk, run, wheel or ride 1 km or 5 km and enjoy a free barbecue following the event. No entry fee and no minimum pledge required. Registration and downloadable pledge forms, as well as setup for online donations can be found at www.terryfox.org. Pledge forms can also be picked up at various locations throughout Norfolk County or by calling 1-888-836-9786.

ravet an Industry

Kravet is one of the suppliers that I carry in the store and I have to tell you – once I got their fabric books I was so excited. Kravet is considered an industry leader in the “to-thetrade” home furnishings industry - including fabrics, furniture, wallcoverings, trimmings, carpets and accessories. Kravet has been in business since 1918, almost 100 years, which is a long time in a very competitive industry. They are considered a luxury brand and when you look at the fabric lines they offer - you can see why. They offer sophisticated, prestigious, quality products and if you have watched HGTV you have seen designers such as Candice Olson, Sarah Richardson and Kimberly Seldon use Kravet fabrics in many of their design projects.

I love that Candice thinks people should get rid of fussy draperies because they can date a room which I am a firm believer in that line of thinking as well! Windows should be clean and simple, less is more. I believe that holds true in Canada much more so than in the U.S. where you will see they use a lot more trims and frills and layering

Leader

on their windows. Thought I would just segue for a second there... sorry. Candice Olson has her own line of luxury fabrics sold through Kravet and Sarah Richardson has an upcoming line of fabrics that will be sold through Kravet as well. Kravet offers a wide, and diverse range, of decorative fabrics in the interior design industry. Lee Jofa, Brunschwig & Fils, GP& J Baker may not be names you are familiar with but Kravet carries their exquisite fabrics and trims. Brunschwig & Fils is a 200 year old company known for its rich brocades and luxurious velvets which apparently were originally created for Louis XIV! Talk about sumptuous! Yes, Kravet is luxurious, however, many lines are affordable. Jeffrey Alan Marks, a California-based interior designer (Bravo TV’s Million Dollar Decorator) will be debuting his new collection of fabrics through Kravet this fall. He has worked on creating beautiful fabrics at affordable prices and I am sure many will be watching

that collection for sure. The list of fabric lines Kravet carries are too numerous to list here, but you can go on their website www.KravetCanada.com to see the extensive range or drop by during store hours to see some of their fine fabrics. I think you will be amazed. Always in the forefront of home fashion design. Judy Janzen Sun e Girl • 519-909-9518 18 Colborne St. N, Simcoe www.sun-e-girl.com

Hello SeptemBer AND Welcome BAcK to ScHool!

eptember brings kids back to school but it can also bring back the common cold and flu. A healthy immune system requires ideal nutrition. Regardless of the nutrients in the healthiest of diets, we require vitamins and minerals to optimize our immune system. Not only are vitamins and minerals important for fighting colds and flus, they are also essential for preventing colds, flus and other illnesses. Vitamin D is an essential nutrient for immune system functioning and to prevent depression in winter months (sometimes referred to as SAD – Seasonal Affective Disorder.) Often our own production of Vitamin D is blocked by wearing sun screens and covering up our skin to prevent sun damage, making Vitamin D supplementation essential. This means that the majority of people are deficient in Vitamin D. Vitamin D blood testing is the most accurate way to determine individual Vitamin D levels and testing is available through your Naturopathic Doctor at the Armstrong Clinic for Naturopathic Medicine. Although many drug stores and health food stores sell vitamins and minerals, Naturopathic Doctors are able to assess your individual vitamin and mineral levels through blood testing and medical sampling to assure that you are not deficient or overdosing your vitamin supplements that are often self-prescribed. Naturopathic Doctors are trained medical professionals who are able to perform physical exams and use natural techniques such as acupuncture, botanicals and homeopathy to help people achieve optimal health a natural and safe way. Naturopathic Doctors are trained to assess and recognize physical signs and symptoms of vitamin and mineral deficiencies and can help you get back on track without the need for antibiotics or other suppressive medications. Many health plans cover the cost for your individual appointment with a Registered and Licensed Naturopathic Doctor. Call the Armstrong Clinic to ask any questions, and to book a time for your Naturopathic Flu Shot - $22+tax/person. Preservative, Egg and needle – free!! Safe for Children and during Pregnancy.

apply nemaTodes now For nexT year’s Grub ConTrol!

f the Japanese beetle has been destroying certain plants in your Iyour landscape plantings or their grubs have been feeding on the roots of lawn, causing unsightly brown patches, maybe it’s time to use Mother

Nature’s secret weapon: beneficial nematodes. Beneficial nematodes are a natural way to control Japanese beetle grubs and over some 200 species other pest insects in your lawn while having no detrimental affect on ladybugs, earthworms and other helpful beneficial insects. Nematodes are naturally occurring microscopic worms of the soil and are used to control soil pest insects in their larvae or grub stages while not posing any health or environmental risks to humans or animals. The beneficial nematodes enter the larva via mouth, anus or respiratory openings and starts to feed. This causes specific bacteria to emerge from the intestinal tract of the nematode. These spread inside the insect and multiply very rapidly. The bacteria convert host tissue into products which can easily be taken up by the nematodes. The soil dwelling insect dies within a few days Beneficial nematodes are effective against the larval or grub stage of Japanese Beetles, Northern Masked Chafer, European Chafer, Rose Chafer, Crane Fly larvae (Leather Jackets), Oriental Beetles and June Beetles. The nematode product you purchase should contain two genera: Steinernema and Heterorhabditis for better grub control. Beneficial Nematodes are very easy to use. Mix with water and spray on the lawn with a water-can, irrigation system, or a hose-end sprayer. Most homeowners spray at a rate of 10 million nematodes per 600 square feet on grub damaged lawns. After an application, keep the soil moist during the first two weeks for the nematodes to get establish. In Ontario, there are two windows of opportunity to apply Beneficial Nematodes to be effective against the Japanese Beetle grub stage. The first application should be at the end of August or the first two weeks of September as the Japanese Beetle are hatching into their first larval stage and then again in early May as the soil warms up to catch any escapes.

thIngs You need to Know About Your retIrement FInAncIAl PlAn hen I help people write their financial plan we talk about how they envision their retirement. Then we determine the cost of their retirement and compare W it to their anticipated retirement income. From this we are able to determine the

amount of money they need to save to reach their envisioned retirement. Usually that number is higher than they expect. The main reason why many underestimate the cost of their retirement is they usually guess too low how long they will live. The increasing probability of a person being retired for more years than they worked means that many retirees are at risk of outliving their savings. Therefore, longevity must be factored into retirement financial plans. According to Statistics Canada the average life expectancy of a Canadian at birth is 81.1 years, up from 77.8 years in 1991. Do we take the average Canadian life expectancy at birth as our own life expectancy? Without any other information, we know that we have a 50% chance of living less than 81.1 years and a 50% chance of living longer than 81.1 years. Yet we do not know by how much. That is not helpful information in determining a meaningful end date for planning purposes. We can obtain more accurate data for our retirement plan by first narrowing down to the average life expectancy for a 65 year old, an age when most people retire. Again we can go to Statistics Canada and learn that if you reach age 65 you have a 50% chance of living another 20.2 years or to age 85.2. Then we can look at it by gender. For example a 65 year old woman on average expects to live 3.1 years longer than a 65 year old man. Lastly we look at cause and age of death of parents, uncles, aunts, grandparents and most importantly, your own medical history, lifestyle and fitness level. Now we can develop a meaningful life expectancy with less than 15% probability of living longer. The adverse effect of inflation is compounded the longer you live. Over the past 40 years inflation averaged around 4.0% per year even though over the past 20 years inflation increased less than 2% per year. However, even if the same low price increases were to continue, inflation could still erode the purchasing power of a persons’ retirement income by 40% over a 25 year period. Above we determined that 50% of 65 year olds could be retired for about that period of time. Therefore, fifty per cent of retirees will need to address a long retirement with inflation combatting investments in order to produce a reliable retirement income that maintains purchasing power for as long as they do. Which 50% do you belong to?

Radial Shockwave Therapy

Dr. Marshall Thompson, B.Sc.DC Radial Shockwave Therapy is a new treatment option for those that are affected by conditions such as: • plantar fasciitis • bursitis • Achilles tendinopathy (commonly known as Achilles tendonitis) • tennis elbow • calcific tendonitis

How does it work?

A pneumatic generator physically delivers the shock wave to the skin, 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.

The route of the Trans-Canada Highway in northern Ontario skirts around hundreds of lakes and was blasted through massive outcroppings of rocks.

By MARG WERDEN Rocks, roads and ravens

It has taken me almost four days of driving, but I’ve finally made it out of Ontario on my cross-Canada road trip! I always forget just how large this province is; and it isn’t even Canada’s largest province being second to Quebec. And once you are north of Barrie, there seems to be little else other than rocks and trees and water until you cross the border into Manitoba. Some of those rocks, trees and water do make for some very picturesque scenery though. The rocks in particular can be very beautiful, varying in colour from black to white with all shades in between including gold, red, grey, bronze, tan, peach, and rust. Sometimes the colours form interesting patterns of horizontal or vertical lines that a geologist would explain using terms such as sedimentation, vulcanization and glaciations. This is the Canadian Shield, billions of years old and formed under the water of a great sea that once covered the area. Later, glaciers and rushing water carved valleys into the landscape and deposited the till material, consisting of soil and rocks, further downstream creating a rolling landscape. In places, deep chasms can be seen in the granite. The granite was formed from molten rock deep beneath the earth’s surface. Then pressure cracks formed in the granite through which lava flowed. Over millions of years, erosion wore away some of the softer lava, leaving ravines, chasms and towering cliffs of the more resistant granite. Today, the rocks range in texture from very smooth and rounded, made so by the action of the wind and water, to jagged and sharpedged. In places, the cliffs tower over the road or drop steeply into Lake Superior. Although I complain of seeing nothing but rocks and trees and water, I will admit that some of these views really are very spectacular. When I stopped at the sign that shows where the time zone changes from Eastern to Central time, I noticed that the marker was embedded in a base made of amethyst, Ontario’s official gemstone and the birthstone for those of us born in February. Amethyst is a variety of quartz and ranges in colour from rose to violet to deep purple and is found in northern Ontario where it is mined in many places. It is also known as Indian stone, rain stone, glass rock, wonder stone and signal stone. While we here in southern Ontario are used to a network of highways that take us from town to town, in Northern Ontario there are far fewer roads. The main east-west road is, of course, the Trans-Canada Highway. This highway is one of the world’s longest national highways (along with the Trans-Siberian Highway and Australia’s Highway 1), with a length of 8,030 km (4,990 miles) from Newfoundland to

British Columbia. Construction of this highway began in 1950 and was completed in 1971. The highway system is recognizable by its distinctive white-on-green maple leaf route markers. In Wawa, north of Sault Ste. Marie, a giant Canada Goose statue commemorates the completion of the last link of the highway. As I sped westward along this excellent road, I had to think of the early settlers who had to travel without the convenience of this road and how difficult their journey must have been. I also marvel at the engineering required to avoid the thousands of lakes in northern Ontario and to route the highway around those massive cliffs and mounds of rock. Obviously, avoiding these obstacles was not always possible and evidence of the dynamite blasting needed to go through some of the rock is still visible. On the whole, however, the highway is in excellent condition, probably because of the constant maintenance (as evidenced by the numerous construction delays) that the highway undergoes. Although I haven’t yet had the opportunity to do any serious birding, I have noticed two species fairly often. One is the Turkey Vulture, which I was surprised to see has increased its range as

far north as Kenora and possibly further. This bird was once not known in Ontario, but human activities have encouraged it to move north. The other common bird to be seen in northern Ontario is the Raven. Although similar in appearance to the Common Crow, the Ravel is much larger. It has a thick neck, shaggy throat feathers and a massive bill. In flight, they have long, wedgeshaped tails and wings that are longer and narrower than a crow’s, with longer, thinner “fingers” at the wingtips. Everything, including the legs, eyes and bill are black. Ravens are not as social as crows and tend to keep to themselves or in pairs, living in open and forest habitats across much of northern Canada up to the treeline. They do well around people and adjust easily to life in urban areas. They are acrobatic fliers, often doing rolls and somersaults in the air. The Raven is an intelligent bird, which makes it a dangerous predator. They sometimes work in pairs to raid seabird colonies, with one bird distracting an incubating adult while the other waits to grab an egg or chick as soon as it is uncovered. They have even been known to wait for ewes to give birth and then attack the

newborn lambs. Because of this and an increasing population of this species, they have become a threat to some vulnerable species such as turtles and endangered bird species. Ravens can also become a nuisance to humans. They’ve been implicated in causing power outages by contaminating insulators on power lines, fouling satellite dishes at the Goldstone Deep Space Site, pecking holes in airplane wings, stealing golf balls, opening campers’ tents, and raiding cars left open at parks. This characteristic has no doubt contributed to the Native people of the Pacific Northwest regarding the raven as an incurable trickster, bringing fire to people by stealing it from the sun, and stealing salmon only to drop them in rivers all over the world.
