ore T han Furniture

By Dave Scott In 1973 the number one song in North America was Tie a Yellow Ribbon ’Round the Ole Oak Tree, Pierre Trudeau was the Prime Minister, the Montreal Canadiens had won the cup, and All in the Family was making waves on TV. Meanwhile in Simcoe, Terry Sheppard was busy starting out in the furniture business at the Lindsay Furniture Store. In 1988, he and his wife, Debbie, took over Lindsay Furniture, which had started in 1936. The young couple made the furniture store their own, breathing fresh life into the business and putting their touches on the all new Sheppard Furniture Store on Colborne Street in Simcoe. This past week, Terry and Debbie shared with the Hub that they are selling the business and retiring. It was a decision that the two have contemplated over the last year. They decided the time had come to enjoy their grandchildren a bit more and after forty years, maybe slow down a little. Talking with both Terry and Debbie you realize this has been their life. Terry chuckles, thinking back to his two young daughters playing in the empty furniture boxes all those years ago. The smile stretches across his face and you understand that his family has always been the priority. The business has been

the place where the memories occurred… where friendships and customer loyalty was built… where conversations were held over coffee, and decisions were made… where customers felt relaxed and returned year after year. He and Debbie have built all that and now is the time to let someone else have that experience! Terry wants to assure the many local customers that he and his wife will be staying on to help the new owners (just working a few less hours). The Sheppards have always prided themselves on putting their customers first and educating clients on their product line. I got the sense that Terry and Debbie were excited about their future. It was like forty years ago all over again… and these two kids at heart, are ready for a new adventure.

Thank you Terry and Debbie for being strong business and community leaders for the past forty years!

et the Music Begin!

By Dave Scott I arrived early Friday morning at the Simcoe Canadian Tire to chat with the members of the Salvation Army Band who were preparing to kick off the annual Christmas Kettle Campaign. Because I was early (I know, I know, I just wanted you to know that I am not late for everything I do!), I was able to talk with Ralph Ryerse, who plays the trombone in the band and has been at it since his youth. Ralph’s story is a family one, both his parents played in the band as well. Ralph says that his parents struggled to make ends meet but were always able to help others. His parents got him started in music and he still enjoys playing to this day! Jim Lewis and Ralph told me that when the Kettle Program originally started, the band would go from street to street, playing under the streetlights and folks would make donations. Over the years the band adjusted their custom and began playing in front of businesses. I had to let Jim and Ralph go so they could begin to play with the rest of the Salvation Army Band and as the music came to life, folks started dropping donations into the kettle. Make sure when you are out and about this holiday season, you drop a little something into the kettle to help those who need it at this time of year.

hristmas Luncheon

Port Dover Community Christmas Luncheon Being Planned for December 25th

Will your family be spending Christmas Day away on holiday or with the other side this year? Have you been laid off and money is a bit tight as you look forward to the holiday season? Are you elderly or single or both and not looking forward to cooking for yourself on Christmas Day? Are you working or attending school far from your family and unable to return home this year? Whatever the reason, you are invited to join us for a festive, hot turkey mid – day community luncheon being served Wednesday, December 25th from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm behind the yellow door in the Anglican Hall at 302 St. George Street. Earlier this summer, a group of Port Dover residents decided they wanted to throw a big Christmas luncheon on Christmas Day and they wanted it to be free and welcoming to many. Their mission statement indicated they were “founded on the premise that no person in our area should be alone or hungry on Christmas Day. The Port Dover Community Christmas Luncheon will be an annual event”. They have readily received donations of turkeys and sponsors for veggies, potatoes, dressing and desserts. The hall will be decked out in holiday style and Christmas Carols will be beckoning everyone in from the cold. Organizers of this event include: Ronn and Cathy Hughes, Tom and Michelle Sartor, Gerald Tyrell, Cathy Kay, Penni Lewis, Kendall Reimer, Carolyn and Donald Woods, Tim McCullough, Murray Rounding, Laurie Lomas, Shelley Wenige and Donna McMillan. The group has many

volunteers who will help in the kitchen with food preparation, set up, serving and clean – up. And of course, all are invited to join in with the luncheon. To register your intention to attend, you are invited to leave the numbers of diners only at the

following number (226) 227 - 7425. You can also visit us at our website pdccl@outlook.com, on Facebook at Port Dover Community Christmas Luncheon and Twitter@pdccl. Any of the people listed above are also happy to provide further information.

trong F ree H appy: The Highlight R eel

Strong Free Happy is a campaign initiated to promote physical activity as a means to mental health, to unite communities in sustainable physical activity, and to raise money for the Canadian Mental Health Association. In the summer of 2013 Jessica VandenBussche, representing a community of supporters, bicycled across Ontario following the North Shore of the Great Lakes. This is what she has to say. This experience has been full of truly beautiful people, breathtaking scenery and just the right amount of challenge. Thank you to everyone who took the time to follow the ride, to get involved and to involve others. I wish you all could have joined me on this trek but am glad to be sharing the highlights with you.

The take-home message

The most important message of this article is that there is hope for people with mental illness. Participating in balanced, sustainable exercise can be an effective strategy. Recovering from mental illness can be a dark and confusing path, but needn’t be lonely, hopeless or aimless. Mental illness (which happens when there is a lack of mental health) is quite common: one out of five Canadians experience it in their lifetime. It is not a character flaw or sign of weakness. Treatment can be difficult because of the associated (albeit dissolving) stigma, lack of human resources in the field (e.g. psychologists), and the fact that everyone responds to medications or other treatments so differently. It is important to seek professional help when needed but there are also additional strategies people can do themselves to gain control of mental illness and to promote their own mental health. One of those is sustainable exercise. Balanced, sustainable exercise, has been shown to help people feel better, relax more easily, and learn more efficiently. This is useful to people with or without mental illness. I urge you to find an activity you enjoy and to exercise outside when possible. It’s important that you get your heart pumping faster than normal and to be breathing heavily. You can start by going for a brisk walk. I also urge you to remember to keep that exercise balanced and sustainable in your life since a host of other issues can crop up when exercise becomes excessive. Now, this is when the critics out there will comment that my twentytwo day long biking journey this summer and the training leading up to it could very easily be considered excessive. I would like to point out

that personally, I consider exercise to be leisure, productivity, and selfcare. Since I enjoy it, do it as a career and to take care of myself, it was easier for me to fit this ordeal into my life balance. That said, it was stressful. I did it – and encouraged others to join - because the benefits of promoting this cause, uniting people and accomplishing a dream outweighed the costs. This cause is sure to proceed with more challenges and more benefits. However, it is time to re-group and share highlights. Please also take time to read the acknowledgements because without these people, Strong Free Happy would still be a daydream.

The beautiful people

I mean ‘beautiful’ in the most whole, inside-and-out sense of the word. The people involved in putting the ride together truly care about others and show it. Seeing them come together is by far the highlight of the Strong Free Happy ride campaign. Initially, this ride to promote sustainable exercise for mental health was a pan-Canadian tour focused on connecting rural communities while inspiring people to be active. Local support gathered almost as soon as I began talking about the idea. Word spread from there as friends, acquaintances and strangers approached me about getting involved. We worked together and relationships grew. When it came time to open up to the community, we were met with open arms. Since then, plans changed to an Ontario-only trip due to extenuating circumstances. I was able to complete a 2,500 km, twentytwo day ride across the southern border of Ontario and am amazed at how generous and supportive people have been. Many people gave up their Thursday evenings, weekends and otherwise spare time to get involved while others seemed to pull resources out of thin air. Tuned Up is a prime example of this care and generosity. Tuned Up was a spin-off party aimed at raising funds towards Strong Free Happy ride for mental health. Held at The Brig in Port Dover, Ontario, the event featured a silent auction supported by the donations of many local businesses, music by singer/songwriter Andy McGuire and dancing to the exotic percussions of our local rock/reggae band Motion Groove. Unwilling to skip a training session on such a busy day, I began the night fundraising by indoor cycling for $1/minute (or $5 for a one minute sprint). It was one of my better interval workouts as the pub overflowed with friends and supporters. Together, we

raised $5,000 for the Strong Free Happy ride. Scotiabank Simcoe then matched that amount for our Haldimand-Norfolk Canadian Mental Health Association branch. I will never forget the feeling of the crowd – and red-shirted crew members - laughing and carrying on, drawn together by a cause uncomfortably near and dear to so many of their hearts. A true success storey, Tuned Up is sure to continue.

trong Free Happy Continued from page 5

The Canadian Mental Health Association has drastically improved their unity and communication between branches this year. Their newsletter and other communication channels are helpful ways of spreading the word about this ride and other mental health strategies. On a more personal note, the Strong Free Happy ride has unquestionably helped individuals with their own mental health challenges. Throughout the ride, I encountered quite a few people who shared their stories of strength in the face of mental illness. It is motivating to hear that all the effort that went into the Strong Free Happy ride is changing lives. I know so because I hear it from the lips of those people for whom we have made a positive impact. Let me share an example. Riding into Port Dover, Ontario, July 5 2013 was remarkable. A few people had ridden with me from St. Thomas, and more joined the convoy as we entered Port Dover. Stopped at the last stoplight before the beach on Highway 6, I could see the crowd gathered to welcome us in. It was a beautiful and busy Friday afternoon during business hours yet many people found the time to gather on the beach to support the Strong Free Happy ride. It was there that I met a man, suicide survivor, mental health advocate, United Way Oxford poster boy, and strong supporter of Strong Free Happy ride, named Larry. He took and held my hand as he told me about his struggle with mental illness. Tears welled up in my eyes and rolled down my cheeks as he explained how close he was to taking his own life but how glad he is that he didn’t. I cried because I feel like I know the emotions he went through. Maybe he felt an earth-shattering restlessness or a deep hole of caged yet engulfing sadness. Too many people have gone through that thought process. It’s saddening to know how many people are affected by mental illness but it is encouraging to

on behalf of Norfolk 4-H. Sharlene Poulsen from Diane Finley’s office presented a certificate on behalf of the Government of Canada as well as a certificate from Toby Barrett on behalf of the Government of Ontario, as he was unable to attend. Mayor Dennis Travale spoke highly of 4-H before presenting a certificate from Norfolk County. know that no one sufferer is alone. No matter your state of mental health, we’re in it together. Larry said his life has changed for the better. He now has a strong support network and is committed to recovery while helping abolish the stigma that surrounds mental illness. He told me that the Strong Free Happy ride has been a source of hope and reassurance that people care - for him and others. “Of course people care,” I thought. How could we not? I am so glad that we have banded together to show our care. I’m glad to have been a light for people with mental illness and want all the supporters out there to know that this is the kind of impact we have had. It only takes one to be worth it, but you have to know that others are out there. You have had a hand in monumental change in this world.

The breathtaking scenery

From valley to mountain apex, flats of grass and windmills or hometown tobacco farms, no picture can capture the natural beauty I’ve experienced on this ride. This story will make your soul sing. It’s Day 3, and finally sunny. It’s getting quite warm and Theo Vanderlee and I are riding together. At hour 2, we make our way up hill on a road cut into the side of a redrocked mountain. We’re so used to the hills in Northern Ontario that the road looks flat compared to its steep mountain sides. After reaching the top, we round a bend and begin the descent. “Use the hills,” Theo said. He is two bike lengths ahead of me when we start down the hill somewhere near Daddy, Mamma and Baby Lake on the way to Sault Ste Marie. Rolling downhill, there’s valley and lake below the cliff on either side of the road. We delve deeper into the fog and I can feel the temperature drop from a sweat-inducing warmth to a fall chill. I am yearning to draft behind Theo for protection from the wind, if not for speed then for warmth. Accelerating, I tuck and pedal. Getting faster and faster,

Everyone celebrated the afternoon with hot dogs, pop and cake. 4-H at Mumford and Sons Stop-Over Concert The Norfolk West 4-H Dairy Club looked after herdsman duties for the jersey and holstein cows, jersey calf, pigs and rabbits at the Norfolk County Mini Fair put on for the Mumford and Sons stop-over in Simcoe. Members kept the animals

clean and fed, but also had time to talk to the hundreds of city folks that came through the buildings. Some were touching baby pigs or calves for the first time. It was a great weekend. Thanks to the 7 members and one 4 H friend who helped. The fair mascot ACE also stopped by for a visit. Even one band member, Ben Lovett, stopped by and helped with a milking demonstration.

I’ve caught up when we’re half way down. We’re travelling at 6065 km/h. Pulling to the side to slow down, my front tire now a few inches from Theo’s back one, the wind hits me like a wall and I slide back into place. It’s amazing how much I’m trusting Theo right now. I have to because I can’t see anything in front of me. Thank goodness the road is two lanes with gentle curves for transport trucks – and that none are coming. The view is incredible, but I dare not turn my head to look. It’s a dreary day though the sun is rising, reflecting golden off the lowlaying clouds. Mountains of red rock and pine trees line the side of the road until we’re free and clear on the bridge, high above the dark blue water. I am so thankful for this intimate view of our Canadian landscape. My hands hurt from staying in the tuck position but it’s worth the speed advantage - I can barely feel the uphill. Theo complimented me on my bout of technical riding and I’m not sure what he’s talking about because it happened so naturally. I have a new confidence and am happy to have brought strategy to my cycling.

family/friends. The schedule before the ride was even more intense as I balanced a couple part time jobs with training, family and the odd social commitment. It was key that I take one day at a time, and I keep pushing until it was done. I made a lot of sacrifice but am proud of what has been accomplished. One of my biggest challenges was having confidence in my training. I had a few coaching influences but was mainly my own judge, trainer and coach. To me, that meant that I was 100% responsible for the outcome. I did a lot of research, had some good ideas, learned a lot along the way, and could always think of more I could do to prepare. I wondered if I did enough. Now that all is said and done, I am happy to note that the training was more difficult than the ride itself. In other words, I was prepared. One challenge that I did not expect was the mental and emotional strain that came with organizing a committee, being in the public eye, and taking care of logistics. I learned a lot about working with people, prioritizing, and communication strategies. One strategy that helped me was to optimize. We can’t go to the past to change a situation nor do we have unlimited time or resources. The best we can do is make the best of the situation at hand with whatever resources we have, sacrificing whatever we’re willing to give. When in the public eye, vulnerability is key. No one’s perfect so you might as well get your insecurities out on the table

The perfect challenge

After 2,500 km, nearly a century ride per day, I can confidently say I have a better idea of what it takes to be an endurance athlete. My average daily schedule during the Strong Free Happy ride consisted of waking before the sun at 5:30 to ride all day in 50 minute sets, separated by a 10 minute snack and stretch break. The exception to this was an hour lunch, during which I changed my clothes, made a few calls, ate and napped. Distance covered in a day varied. After a 6-12 hour day of riding, it was time to clean up, ice bath, eat, take care of my bike (named Jacques), journal and go to bed. Sometimes there was time to hit a local beach for the ice bath. This repeated for 4-6 days, until it was time for a rest day. I’d sleep in slightly on rest days, blog, try to get a massage and a bike tune-up, and spend time with

By MARG WERDEN Will the monarchs return?

When we first purchased our property, it was being used to grow cash crops such as corn and soybeans. After allowing part of the field to go fallow, we had a bumper crop of those “noxious” (as it is classified by the Ontario Weed Control Act) milkweeds. Not surprisingly, we also had an abundance of monarch butterflies, caterpillars, and pupae in the fall. This fall, 15 years later, despite still having an abundance of milkweeds, I could find no caterpillars or pupae and only saw a handful of monarch butterflies fluttering around the garden. Now, disturbing news is coming out of Mexico, where the monarchs migrate to spend the winter. In a typical year, 350 million monarchs overwinter in the pine forests of the Mexican mountains. Last year, that number dropped to 60 million. The return of the monarchs is usually celebrated by Mexicans on November 1, the Day of the Dead, when, without fail, the butterflies show up at their wintering place. They are believed to be the returning souls of the dead. This year, however, the monarchs did not return on November 1,

Without bees and other insects, we will soon be starving ourselves, as they are responsible for pollinating approximately 80 per cent of our food crops. a phenomenon not previously recorded, and now, almost a month later, fewer than three million have shown up. The monarch butterfly is in serious trouble. A combination of factors is affecting the monarch population. One of the worst threats is the cutting of the pine forests in their overwintering place. However, we cannot put all the blame on Mexico. Canada and the United States also have to take some of the responsibility for the downward trend in the population. Pesticides that are used to destroy milkweeds growing on agricultural land have had a devastating effect on the monarchs since this is the only plant on which they lay their eggs. The use of Roundup, which kills everything except crops that are genetically modified to survive the herbicide application, is wiping out milkweed and other native plants that many insects need to flourish. Monarchs that are born in Canada migrate to Mexico in the fall and then head back north in the spring following the emergence of the milkweed plants to produce successive generations. Wiping out the milkweed plant in the American Midwest means the return migration is halted when the next generation is unable to find food. Another factor that has affected the population of the monarchs is the very warm spring we had in 2012. While the butterflies flew north on the warm southern breezes, once they arrived in

The return of the monarch butterfly to Mexico this year is down from about 350 million a few years ago to just 3 million.

Canada, there were no milkweeds here for them. Although they fed on other plants that were available, they were unable to reproduce. As a result, fewer butterflies headed south in the fall. Because the monarch is easily recognizable, it is like an indicator species, alerting us to changes in our environment. Less noticeable is the decline of the wild bee population, as well as the populations of other beneficial insects. Although pesticides, particularly nicotinebased pesticides, are a huge factor in their decline, an equally big problem is the loss of native vegetation across North America. This loss of habitat is a result of current agricultural practices. Corn prices have increased because of US federal government subsidies for bio-fuels, encouraging farmers to expand their fields and put what was previously “waste” land into production. This has meant a reduction in native habitats that are used by insects to feed and reproduce. Although some people may applaud the decline in “bug” populations, they have a very limited view of how beneficial these animals are to us. Without insects, organic matter would not be broken down, birds would not have a source of food for their young, and, what is probably of greatest significance to us, we would soon be starving ourselves. Approximately 80 per cent of our food crops are pollinated by insects and without the insects doing their

jobs, food production would grind to a halt. Another problem is what we are doing with our gardens and landscapes. While native oaks and willows support hundreds of species of caterpillars, non-native trees support very few. For example, the ginkgo supports just three, while the zelkova, which was planted to replace elm trees, supports no caterpillars. These non-native trees are like empty grocery stores for birds that visit them. If we don’t slow down this decline in insect populations, we will soon be in some serious trouble ourselves. What can we do? The first thing that anyone with a piece of land can do is to plant some native wildflowers. Never mind the showy hybridized annuals that have little or no food value for our native insects. Look into planting native plants that will reproduce themselves year after year, saving you money, and, at the same time, saving our native insects. Convert some of your sterile green lawn into a wildflower meadow and watch the dozens of species of butterflies, bees and other insects enjoy the “buffet” you’ve laid out for them. Keep in mind that without insects, we will be without food for ourselves, so every native flower you plant will be food in your own mouth down the road. As winter sets in and you begin to dream of next summer’s garden, consider going “native” this year.

right away. It’s easier said than done, but totally worth the effort. Whatever the challenge, it helps to break it up into smaller goals. When climbing hills I’d do it one street sign, telephone pole or fence post at a time. Mental and emotional challenges too can be broken down into more manageable chunks. The moral of the story is that we all have challenges, we all make sacrifices and we all endure. Through endurance, we can realize what we are capable of. To prove my point, I would like to challenge you to set a goal you believe to be just slightly out of your reach – something you don’t totally believe you’re capable of, but that you’re willing to try.
