Lest We Forget By Ron Giofu Amherstburg has remembered its heroes who served Canada in times of war and peace. Remembrance Day ceremonies were held Monday morning with Royal Canadian Legion Br. 157 organizing and leading both the parade in the downtown core and service at the cenotaph in King’s Navy Yard Park. As is tradition, wreaths were laid at the cenotaph to remember those who served including those whose names are on the cenotaph itself. Two minutes of silence were observed to remember the fallen with local schools, police officers, firefighters, local dignitaries and current members of the military were among those on hand to pay tribute to those who served. Essex MP-elect Chris Lewis honoured not just the fallen, but their loved ones as well. Lewis paid tribute to not just those who served, but their families as well. “Somme, Vimy, Dieppe, Passchendaele – places I have never visited but names I will never forget,” said Lewis. Lewis said the men and women in uniform must always be remembered and Canadians must always be thankful for their service. “They laid down their lives for you and me,” said Lewis. Nolan Hennin represented Essex MPP Taras Natyshak and also remarked about the importance of Remembrance Day. He said it was an honour to be able to come to Amherstburg and represent Natyshak and also praised

the Legion for its work in organizing the parade and service. Mayor Aldo DiCarlo also thanked Royal Canadian Legion Br. 157 for its continued efforts in the community including organizing the Remembrance Day ceremonies. He said not every municipality is able to host such appropriate Remembrance Day ceremonies and thanked the Legion for presenting them annually in Amherstburg. DiCarlo admitted that he looks at the weather forecast every year to see what is in store for Remembrance Day, but noted that soldiers in times of battle had to go through much worse. Weather, including the blustery, cold and snowy conditions that hit Amherstburg on Monday, should never keep people from showing their gratitude to veterans. Legion Br. 157 president Laurie Cavanaugh also acknowledged the weather, but she too pointed out those who served Canada had to endure much worse conditions. Cavanaugh added Br. 157 is there for veterans and their families and will stand up for them, as she thanked them for their service. Cavanaugh said “our doors are always open” to helping those who served.

Park House Museum officially recognized as place of national historical significance By Ron Giofu

The historical significance of the Park House Museum is no secret locally, but it now has national designation. The Historic Sites and Monuments Board and Parks Canada were on hand Saturday morning at the Park House Museum to officially unveil a plaque designating the Dalhousie St. museum as a place of national historical significance. The Park House is not only one of the oldest buildings in Amherstburg, but it is also considered one of the oldest buildings in southwestern Ontario. “It's an honour,” curator Stephanie Pouget-Papak said of the designation. The precise date of construction is unknown, but has been contended that its Loyalist owners floated it down the Detroit River to Upper Canada when the British ceded Detroit to the Americans in 1796. The building has had numerous owners over the years, including the Park family, who owned it for over 100 years with their ownership ending in 1945. Between 1881 and 1936, it was home to Dr. Theodore Park. The building was nearly demolished in the early 1970's, but the efforts of

Hazen Price helped save the building and it was relocated to its current site at the corner of Dalhousie St. and Rankin Ave. Price, now 96-years-old, was on hand for Saturday's ceremony. Price is also still an Amherstburg Rotarian, with the Rotary Club helping to fund the building's operation. The Park House was described as an 18th Century house with a French-framed “poteaux-en-coulisse construction, asymmetrical design and centre-passage plan.” It's history as a fur trading post was also recognized during the ceremony. When stepping foot in the Park House, “you definitely step back in time,” said Pouget-Papak. This was the third time the Park House has tried to achieve such a designation, with Pouget-Papak adding it was the demonstration of the building's national significance that helped it get the plaque. She noted they are now eligible for cost-sharing grants, adding a new coat of paint is one of the maintenance items that is needed. Terry Hall, the Rotarian who did a lot of the research into the building's history along with Pouget-Papak, noted the Park House “pre-dates the

A singer and songwriter from Amherstburg has released her second album and will be headlining a charity show in Windsor later this month. Eighteen-year-old Alexa Carroccia released her second album “Clementine” Oct. 21 and the six-song album has been in the works for several months. She said she started writing the songs around last Christmas and wrote them as the creative spirit hit her. “The songs were kind of spread out. I wrote them at different times,” she said. Carroccia described her vocals as mainly pop with the instrumentals having an independent-based sound. She recorded the album out of Red Dragon Studio in downtown Windsor. Her first album came out when she was 14-years-old. “On this one, I think I’ve grown quite a bit,” said Carroccia. Carroccia, who studies criminology at the University of Windsor, said she started singing and songwriting when she was “11 or 12.” “For me, I was kind of a late bloomer,” said Carroccia. “I’ve loved it ever since.” Stating it would be “amazing” to take her talents on tour, Carroccia said her main goal is to connect with people. “Music makes me happy,” said Carroccia. “Wherever it takes me, it takes me.” Her album and the songs on it are derived from personal experiences with Carroccia stating “I write from my heart.” She hopes to “share my music with the world” and hopes her next album will be a fulllength one. “Clementine” is available on all streaming services and CD’s will be available soon. Carroccia said her new album has been received very well so far. “That makes me extremely happy,” she said. In fact, Carroccia said she even heard from former classmates from high school that she didn’t usually communicate with, who told her they connected with her music. “I’m grateful for all the support,” she said. The EP release show will be at the Olde Walkerville Theatre starting at 7 p.m. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Roots 2 Wings, a group that assists young adults and adults with disabilities.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Reader enthusiastic about business owner’s attempt to promote local colleagues

Town needs to “do better” when it comes to drafting a budget We are now in the midst of one of the most crucial decisions in any level of government, including ours – setting the annual budget. And already this process is hurried and being done in the shade. The full 274-page budget was made publicly available less than a week before the first (and only) public consultation; hardly enough time for a thorough consideration. The yearly tax increase (4.55 per cent) is greatly in excess of that seen in most people’s pensions or wages. Significant additional staffing is requested. This whole process is backward. You may recall Windsor City Council behavior during Eddie Francis’ time.

That council gave explicit instruction to administration for a zero tax increase before the detailed budget was developed. It should be the role of our elected council to give similar guidance on overall increases to initiate our process, and to ensure that adequate time for thorough public consultation is provided. I recommend council direct administration to go back and bring forth a new budget with a rate of inflation increase or less and we can then start deliberations. Let’s do better! — John F. McDonald Amherstburg

Families First welcomes back

DR. ALAN D. WOLFELT

for a FREE seminar on grief, bereavement and the grieving process.

I read with great enthusiasm from the River Town Times Maria Goggin’s first attempt at creating an open market to promote local businesses. I too had a vision of something similar for Murray St. vendors and I would love to share it with her and possibly town council. I believe it is vital to retain and maintain historic buildings for the benefit of the community, economy and future generations. Murray St. between Dalhousie and Ramsay Streets has many historic buildings that, ideally, should be restored to their former glory. While out walking the downtown core one day, I noticed these last few remaining historic buildings on Murray St. and how they looked. I then had a vision, an idea, of how this section of town could be transformed; made more vibrant to attract tourism and help local shopkeepers stay alive as well. I envisioned

an open-air market; a closed off, walking street – no cars allowed – with a string of small lights from building to building in a diagonal pattern; small café tables in the “court style” walkable street. Renovated and restored historic buildings with new storefronts reflecting how they looked in the past; no sidewalks but wider street right to the shops’ front doors (all one level for easy access for everyone). This is what Toronto has done in The Distillery area of the city and Saratoga Springs, New York has done in one section of that city’s old section off of main street. A wonderful feature to draw in tourism! This would be a great idea to be part of Amherstburg’s “Great Spaces, Great Places.” — Donna Wright Amherstburg

Resident “stunned” to see the amount of disrespect shown to town administration I couldn’t attend the budget consultation meeting Nov. 9 at the Libro Centre, but I did watch a live feed provided by a Facebook friend. I was stunned to see the disrespect towards town administration based on what appeared to be a complete misunderstanding of how a budget comes to be brought forward. Mr. Rozankovic, president of the newly formed group, Amherstburg Taxpayers Association, seemed to be asking why administration, or specifically CAO Miceli didn’t bring forth a more “reasonable” proposed budget.

Administration shouldn’t be picking and choosing what is included in the budget. They should be looking at what needs to be done within the municipality, future obligations, changing government requirements and things need to fulfill plans that are already in place (that, by the way, are built on council and resident input). Administration’s job is to include all of that in a proposed budget. This is what they did with this budget. It is then council’s job to review the proposed budget and decide, based on resident input and what

is good for the municipality as a whole, what should stay and what should be discarded. It’s the job we elected them to do. I’m at a loss as to why Mr. Rozankovic and his group who regularly shout that Mr. Miceli has too much power suddenly want him to be the decider on what budget items council even sees. At the end of Mr. Rozankovic’s rant, he dramatically exhorted council to save us some tax money by firing the CAO. The cheering and clapping at this was the only thing more disrespectful than the original comment. While this group claims to be the voice of the people, with that kind of ill-mannered rhetoric, they do not represent me.

Residents protest potential tax increase at public meeting By Ron Giofu

Town council is going into budget deliberations looking to shave down a proposed 4.55 per cent tax increase and residents are adamant they do so. A packed house of residents, most of them angry about the 4.55 per cent increase that administration recommended, told council to cut that down substantially during a public meeting at the Libro Centre last Saturday afternoon. CAO John Miceli and treasurer Justin Rousseau made a similar presentation to the public that they made to council the previous Monday with Miceli telling the public they use a zero-based budgeting system in Amherstburg and that the number of pages in the budget grew from 63 pages in 2015 to 274 in 2020. “Our administration is required to justify each and every expenditure,” said Miceli, who said they need 2.2 per cent to maintain the status quo due to an increase in the CPI. Rousseau warned against the infrastructure funding gap and noted one per cent of the budget is $250,000. “$250,000 doesn't go very far when it comes to paving roads, fixing bridges

and fixing infrastructure,” stated Rousseau. However, people in the crowd clearly weren't in agreement with the town officials, calling for lower taxes and cuts. Louise Jarvis didn't believe the proposed budget was fair to seniors or young people. She said “no one kicked in the mayor's door” asking to purchase Duffy's or Belle Vue and believed residents are being asked to pay for past council's mistakes as soon as possible. “There are a lot of bad decisions council made and you are expecting us to pay for that debt right away,” she said. “That's not fair.” Gregory Moore asked if there were any cuts made to any departmental budgets. “I've yet to see a budget cut in any department,” he said. Rousseau said there are reductions and those are detailed within the budget as every dollar up or down is documented. Moore also outlined a number of concerns with possible future expenditures, listing a new public works building, library, town hall, fire station and other costs. He also

Ken Thrasher addresses the crowd as part of a public budget meeting last Saturday afternoon at the Libro Centre as administration and Mayor Aldo DiCarlo are seen behind him. Thrasher was one of the residents upset with the proposed 2020 Amherstburg budget. questioned the need for the tourism department, questioning government's need to pay to plan festivals. “You guys have the ideology of spend, spend, spend but you don't have the money to spend,” Moore contended. Miceli said they are looking to the town's future and identifying needs for the future. Tim Brown said homes will be reassessed in 2020 by MPAC and that is “the elephant in the room.” Brown said the MPAC assessments will have a significant impact on people and the town to look at the total impact on taxpayers. He also called for actuals to be returned to town budgets, though he was told by Rousseau those numbers are found in documents available on the town's website. Miceli added that local governments are getting away from using actuals in budgeting. John McDonald called the proposed 4.55 per cent increase “unacceptable” and questioned the process of developing the budget. “This is far too truncated a process,” said McDonald. “I don't understand why it has to be that way.” McDonald said there is only one public meeting and believed for a document as important as the budget, there should be two to three weeks of public consultation. He also believed there was not enough guidance from council going into the process. Ken Thrasher questioned Mayor Aldo DiCarlo on the budget and whether there was a surplus and also questioned the town on the “Great Spaces, Great Places” grant application. Thrasher called the latter “a field of dreams.” “Have we not learned anything from history?” he asked. Thrasher said previous grants saw town money put towards projects that included trails and concrete huts and that not enough money was directed to where it was needed. “Now we're looking at doing that again?” Thrasher called for council to send administration back and develop a new budget, noting of administration that “three-quarters of them don't even live in this town.” Bob Rozankovic said DiCarlo failed as the town's CEO and that he should have provided more input into it

before it came to the public. He asked the mayor whether he supported the budget and DiCarlo stated “I support what council supports.” Rozankovic said the proposed 2020 budget shows disregard for hard working residents and no empathy for seniors and clashed with Miceli over whether it was a zero-based budget or not. Rozankovic also called for the release of the police agreement with Windsor, stating “there is nothing in there that needs to be kept secret.” Before sitting down, Rozankovic said the town could chop one per cent of the budget by getting rid of Miceli. “There's $250,000,” he said. Another resident, Frank DiPasquale, believed Rozankovic's last remark was “unfair” and said “administration is made up of professionals doing their jobs.” However, DiPasquale did understand the frustration of residents as the town has been on “a roller coaster” for the last 20 years. DiPasquale said the size of administration continues to increase and wanted to know when water and wastewater rates would be more “reasonable.” “Let's show our passion but let's not be insulting,” he asked of his fellow residents. Nancy Atkinson questioned whether infrastructure was affordable, noting Rousseau regularly brings up the infrastructure funding gap in budget presentations. Rousseau said that is why the town has to have a solid financial plan. Atkinson also questioned the savings from switching to Windsor police and wondered why it was presented as part of a tax increase. Rousseau and Miceli said it was presented to show the savings with a recommendation to transfer it into a reserve but can be used to bring down the tax rate increase if council chooses to. Roger Hudson believed it was more of a 6.5 per cent tax rate increase that is being proposed due to the reassessments of homes. He said other local businesses have adapted to a changing economic climate and believed the town should do so as well. Town council will deliberate the 2020 budget Nov. 19 from 6-10 p.m., Nov. 20 from 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. and, if necessary, Nov. 21 from 2-8 p.m.

The hall at the Royal Canadian Legion Fort Malden Branch 157 transformed into a fashion catwalk the last two Sundays. Déja Vu New 2, a three-year-old local consignment fashion store, brought in its brand-name couture and 12 models to show it all off. Proceeds from the event are earmarked for Toys for Tots, an American program that sends toys to children whose guardians cannot afford to buy them gifts for the holidays. Last year, the event raised $500 for the charity. Kimberly Renaud, who owns Déja Vu New 2, said she hopes this year will bring in a similar amount of money over two separate fashion shows. Last Sunday’s fashion show included three outfit changes, which the models showed off in a walk down the Legion’s hall. The models, Renaud said, were all friends and customers. They strutted down re the makeshift catwalk in a variety of styles, from lp you prepare casual wear to formal evening gowns, all of which are provide for ds. available in the Déja Vu New 2 store. Patrons of the brick-and-mortar location can also donate money or gift cards to Toys for Tots in the store until Friday. The Legion itself was the ideal venue for the event, Renaud said, since she has a long history there. “My mom was president of the Ladies Auxiliary and my step sister is the current president,” she said. “Really, (the Legion is) perfect for this.

Local families make large donation to mission thanks to Halloween displays

RTT PHOTO BY RON GIOFU

Derek & Cooper Shank and Ken Grant represented their respective families as they donated canned goods and non-perishable food items to Amherstburg Food & Fellowship Mission president Tim McAllister. The Shank and Grant families donated 629 food items, toiletries and cash that they collected from the public that came to their homes to view their Halloween decorations. By Ron Giofu The Grant and Shank families try to top each other’s Halloween decorations each year and the Amherstburg Food and Fellowship Mission has benefitted. The McLellan Ave. families worked for month’s on their yards and the decorations that went in them with the Shanks offering a haunted carnival in their front yard while the Grants went with a butcher shop and crematorium theme. Each front yard also offered

a place for donations of canned goods and other non-perishable items and, when it was all said and done, a total of 629 food items were collected. There were also donations of toothpaste, toothbrushes, socks, soaps, a $40 cash donation and other items on top of the food items. “We definitely exceeded our first year,” said Ken Grant. “We almost doubled what we did the first year,” added Heather Shank.

www.rivertowntimes.com The families flooded social media with word of their fundraiser and there was a preview article done as well in the Oct. 23 edition of the River Town Times. Wordof-mouth advertising also paid dividends. “There are more people aware we are doing it now,” said Grant. The food items and toiletries were all collected within a two-week span, with good weather for much of that timespan credited with helping. However, even though foul weather came in for Halloween night itself, Grant said he had 358 kids still brave the conditions and come to their home. Shank pointed out there were children bringing in their donations in the same bag they were trick-ortreating with. “That was sweet,” she said. “The kids are getting into it.” The two families plan on keeping the tradition going of not only setting up Halloween displays, but also using it as a way to collect food items for the Amherstburg Food and Fellowship Mission. “As long as we’re putting up Halloween displays, we’ll continue helping the mission,” said Grant. Halloween is on a Saturday night in 2020 and they hope to raise even more next year. Both families thank everyone who came out to their displays and those who brought in donations. “It’s not possible to do what we do without their support,” said Grant, adding his 2020 theme will be a haunted wedding. “The neighbourhood has been great,” added Shank. Mission president Tim McAllister was thankful as well. “I’m grateful to the families who put in all the time and effort to put this together,” he said. “We are able to help those people who need help.” McAllister added they are able to “bless people” who come in the front door and it serves as a nice introduction to the Christmas donation season. Grant said they don’t do what they do for themselves and want to help the community. “Everyone gives what they have to give,” he said. “It shows how generous the Amherstburg community is.”

said the entire school rallied around the goals of the event. “We do this as a fundraiser but more importantly, it's a way of building our community around three goals – literacy, numeracy and healthy, active living,” she said. The event raises thousands of dollars

annually, but DiPasquale said the bigger goal is to raise awareness of the three goals. Helping the students learn were members of the Amherstburg Fire Department, Team Brad Bondy, the Amherstburg Admirals, the Windsor Spitfires, the Windsor Express, former teachers, representatives of the WindsorEssex Catholic District School as well as parents. Guest readers visited with the students and parents helped work with their children during the event. There were also events in the school's gymnasium where the students drummed large balls and stayed active in other ways. “The kids are already excited about Halloween so we figured this is the best day of the year to do it,” DiPasquale said of the Oct. 31 event. “As much as it is a fundraiser, it is also a community-based

event. We have very supportive parents.” Proceeds will go back into the River Canard school with plans for the money including upgraded technology, field trips, educational equipment and other materials. “All of the money raised is spent to give back to kids through an improved educational experience at St. Joseph School,” she said. Ryan Anderson of the Windsor Express spoke to a Grade 8 class and he was well received by the class. He said he wanted to let the students know they can accomplish anything they want to in life. “They can do anything they put their minds and their hearts to,” said Anderson.

River Lights, Canadian Tire continue partnership for Holiday House Tours By Ron Giofu

Sr. Lady Gens lose hard fought battle to Kennedy in WECSSAA “AA” title game By Ron Giofu The General Amherst Lady Gens senior girls basketball team lost 60-44 in the WECSSAA “AA” title game but no one was hanging their heads after the game. The Lady Gens ran up against a strong Kennedy team in the final, a Clippers team that could be a top seed at OFSAA should they advance to the

provincial championship tournament, and had a competitive game against them. The Lady Gens’ goal was to make the WECSSAA final and they did that, even holding a 39-38 lead after three quarters. “I couldn’t be prouder of a bunch of kids,” said General Amherst head coach Dom Silvaggio after Sunday afternoon’s game at St. Clair College.

The Lady Gens, whose goal was making the finals, lost a competitive 60-44 game to the favoured Kennedy Clippers. nervous in the first half and turned the ball over too much, he said, but they settled in and played one of their best quarters of the year in the third quarter. General Amherst

had trailed 28-19 at the half. “We can’t be any prouder,” Silvaggio emphasized. Kennedy put the game away late but Silvaggio

said the game was more competitive than the final score would indicate. The Clippers have an Amherstburg connection, as they are coached by Silvaggio’s son Stephen.

Brynlee Ammonite led the Lady Gens in scoring in the finals with 16 points while Dani Brindley had ten points. Lexi Dodds scored nine points.

Admirals return home and down the Essex 73’s 6-3 By Ron Giofu

Fresh off a successful six-game road trip, the Amherstburg Admirals returned home and downed visiting Essex 73's 6-3. Sunday night's game saw Cody Schneider pop a pair of goals with Christian McBride, Andrew Clark, Broden Meloche and Kolton Couvillon also scoring for Amherstburg. The Admirals outshot the 73's 39-26. Admirals head coach Paul Bortignon said his team is getting healthy and while Josh Talerico was serving a suspension Sunday night and Patrick Godin is still hurt, the team's injury list is getting smaller. The game against Essex also marked the return of goalie Nick Bolton, who missed four games and Bortignon said he played well. “I thought we had a good effort from all four lines tonight,” he said. “When you get four lines going, it makes a big difference in keeping the guys fresh throughout the game.”

Bortignon said he didn't recall the Admirals ever beating the 73's by three goals since the franchise moved to Amherstburg. “That's as fired up as I've ever seen them after a win,” said Bortignon. “You can't say enough about that win. It's fantastic.” The Admirals road trip wrapped up Saturday night with an 8-4 win over the Wallaceburg Thunderhawks. Clark had two goals for the Admirals, who also got goals from Bryce McGregor, Max Clifford, Schneider, Liam Kiewtiz, Broden Meloche and Couvillon. Bortignon said they had a goal of getting ten points on the road trip and they did that. He praised the play of goalie Joe Bohn, an AP player they called up who picked up three wins and a tie on the trip. “You can't say enough about him,” said Bortignon. The game against Essex was the first in a stretch of 13 of 16 games the Admirals (10-3-1-1, 22 points) will play at the Libro

Parking issues in local neighbourhood ends up before town council By Ron Giofu Parking in an Amherstburg neighbourhood was brought to town council with council looking to the residents to see if they want to fix it themselves.

Residents on Windermere Place came to town council concerned about “no parking” signs on both sides of the waterfront street. Mark Olivito and Lisa Carnelos appeared before council and, while they understood there was an agreement between the developers

Amherstburg’s Christian McBride scores the first goal of the game on Essex goalie Connor Meyerink Sunday night at the Libro Centre. The Admirals won 6-3. Centre. He said they are working hard in practice and it is carrying over into games. “I think we're getting better and better every game so far this year,” he said. The Admirals have two home games

this weekend, with the two-time defending PJHL Stobbs Division champion Lakeshore Canadiens coming to town Saturday while Dresden comes to Amherstburg Sunday. Both games are at 7 p.m.

and the town, no parking on the street impacts their ability to host guests as there no safe place to park elsewhere. Carnelos believed “there is ample room on one side of the road” and that believed they were proposing something that addressed the town's safety concerns. Like Olivito, she noted there is no safe place for guests to park if visiting their homes. “There has to be, in our view, a compromise,” she said. However, neighbour Richard Lanoue was not in favour, stating the first 13 of 15 years living on the street were enjoyable but the street has turned into “a party zone” in the last two. “It's completely disrupted our lives,” said Lanoue. “I think if it's one side of the street, it's not going to stop the program.” Lanoue said his family has had to call the police five times in the last two years. Manager of licensing and enforcement

Nicole Rubli noted the development agreement was signed in 1991, adding the town's existing traffic bylaw already prohibits parking in cul-de-sacs. Fire chief Bruce Montone noted fire trucks need a lot of room to operate, noting the aerial truck is 15-feet wide and needs an additional two feet for out-rigging. It was Councillor Michael Prue who suggested that widening the road fall under a local improvement, and that if residents want the road widened to accommodate parking, they have the option of doing it themselves. “I don't want the town to do it,” said Prue. CAO John Miceli pointed out to fall under the Local Improvement Act, 50 per cent of residents plus one have to agree and the cost would then be incurred by all residents in the impacted area. Prue's motion called for the issue to be referred back to the residents to see what they wanted to do.

Brynlee Ammonite fights through Kennedy defenders en route to two of her team high 16 points last Sunday at St. Clair College. General Amherst lost a competitive 60-44 WECSSAA “AA” championship game to Kennedy.

ARIES – Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, you may have to make your own opportunities rather than waiting for some to fall in your lap. Only then can you prove to others what you’re worth. TAURUS – Apr 21/May 21 Few things rustle your feathers, Taurus. But when your ire is up, take a step back to collect yourself. Use the latter half of the week to get things back in order. GEMINI – May 22/Jun 21 It may take a few steps in the wrong direction to realize you need to change course, Gemini. But smooth sailing will soon prevail. Stay the course.

Continued from Page 15 “The beginning was a little rough for us, a lot of bad plays,” said Ammonite. “We weren’t playing our game.” After some words from Silvaggio, they turned it around and played well. “I think we gave (Kennedy) a run for their money,” she said. Ammonte said it was her last basketball game as she is graduating this year and she said both she and the team left everything on the court. “I’m really proud of the team. I am really proud we made it to the WECSSAA final. That was a big accomplishment for us,” said Ammonite. The Lady Gens advanced to the finals by defeating the Kingsville Cavaliers 41-26 in the semi-final last Thursday in Kingsville. “We were in foul trouble most of the game, eventually we had two players foul out early in the fourth quarter and had three other players with four fouls,” said Silvaggio. “The kids hung tough though and played great defence.” Dodds had 20 points and Brindley had ten in that game. Silvaggio said they lost convincingly

to both Kennedy and Kingsville earlier in the season, and that their progress showed in the playoffs. “I think the kids improved so much,” he said. The Lady Gens will get five players back next season for sure. “We’ll play as best we can with the girls we have and see what happens,” said Silvaggio. The Lady Gens’ first game of the week was a 53-18 rout of the Herman Green Griffins last Tuesday in quarterfinal action at General Amherst. Silvaggio said that game wasn’t pretty but they pulled it out. Emma Pillon scored 11 points while Allison Dufour and Abby Orchard scored ten and eight points respectively. “We started pretty slow,” Madi Pillon said after that game. She said they often played down to their competition but they were able to pick up the win. “It took us until the third quarter to get going,” said Pillon. Pillon and five of her teammates played their last home game against Herman. She said it was sad it was over, noting she played three seasons on the senior team.

CROSSWORD PUZZLE

LEO – Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, when you take a stand, others are sure to take notice at what you have to say. You have the kind of magnetism and presence to garner the attention and support of others. VIRGO – Aug 24/Sept 22 Work-related stress may not go away entirely, but you can find a way to reduce it, Virgo. Indulge in a long lunch with coworkers or take a much-needed day off to clear your mind. LIBRA – Sept 23/Oct 23 It may take some extra motivation for you to get moving on a project at home, Libra. But once the momentum takes hold, it will be smooth sailing for several days. SCORPIO – Oct 24/Nov 22 Many times it is not what you say but what you do not say that has the most impact, Scorpio. Consider your words carefully before speaking up. SAGITTARIUS – Nov 23/Dec 21 Managing a household can be just as important as keeping your professional life running smoothly, Sagittarius. Give yourself a pat on the back if you’re accomplishing both. CAPRICORN – Dec 22/Jan 20 A vacation may be just what the doctor ordered, Capricorn. Begin researching destinations now and figure out the best way to finance a trip to get away and soak up the sun. AQUARIUS – Jan 21/Feb 18 A change of scenery may do you some good in the days ahead, Aquarius. See if you can fit in an extended weekend to clear your mind.

Jr. Lady Gens eliminated by L’Essor

RTT PHOTOS BY RON GIOFU

Hannah Rusenstrom dribbles up the floor during General Amherst’s game last week with L’Essor. The Lady Gens lost 53-24. By Ron Giofu The General Amherst

Lady Gens junior girls basketball team did their best but couldn’t advance

in the WECSSAA “AA” playoffs. The junior Lady Gens hosted L’Essor last Tuesday evening and lost 53-24. Despite their record (0-8 in the WECSSAA Tier 1 regular season and 0-1 in the playoffs), the coaching staff was pleased with their young team’s progress this season. “It’s been a really nice season for Mr. (Ben) Pelger and I,” said head coach Greg Scott, “because we loved working with these girls every night. They have such a good attitude about the game.” There were about seven Grade 9 players on the team and they are eligible to come back next year and Scott said they have seen improvement in those players as well as the Grade 10 players throughout the season. “Everyone improved a ton since we started,” said Scott. “They did a great job this year.” The scores of the games didn’t discourage any of the players as they always worked hard and put forth a good effort, he indicated. Scott also

encouraged the players to keep finding ways to play basketball in the offseason to get better for next year. “It would be nice if we could all stay together and continue to build on what we did this season,” said Scott. Lauren Baillargeon agreed they improved as the season went on, stating there would be a

difference if one were to view the first game of the season as opposed to the last game of the season. “I think we’ve improved a lot,” said Baillargeon. Paige Desramaux added the junior Lady Gens played hard last Tuesday night but ran up against a talented L’Essor team. She agreed they improved as the season

went on and she plans on playing basketball with the Windsor Warriors travel program during the winter. Both Desramaux and Baillargeon thanked the coaches for working with them during the season and their parents and grandparents for supporting them during the season.

CORPORATION OF THE TOWN OF AMHERSTBURG NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING TAKE NOTICE that the Council of the Corporation of the Town of Amherstburg will hold a public meeting on Monday, December 9, 2019 commencing at 5:00 p.m. in the Town of Amherstburg Council Chambers, 271 Sandwich Street South, Amherstburg, Ontario, to consider a proposed amendment to the Town of Amherstburg Zoning By-law 1999-52 under Section 34 of the Planning Act, RSO 1990 cP.13. THE SUBJECT LAND affected by the proposed amendment is described as Conc 3 N Pt Lot 2, municipally known as 265 Concession 3 North and Conc 3 S Pt Lot 3, municipally known as 349 Concession 3 North. The properties have a combined area of 43 hectares (106.25 ac) with a frontage of 651 metres (2135.8 ft). (see key map below).

Bulldogs eliminated in WECSSAA “AA” football semi-finals by Kennedy

THE PURPOSE OF THE ZONING BY-LAW AMENDMENT is to re-zone the subject lands from Heavy Industrial to “Special Provision Agricultural (A-43) Zone” to allow for the construction of a commercial greenhouse facility, warehouse, accessory structures, seasonal worker housing for employees, and hot water storage tanks. A portion of the lands to the north abutting the Chrysler Greenway will be re-zoned from Heavy Industrial (HI) to Environmental Protection (EP) Zone. The zoning change will include site specific provisions to address lot line setbacks, parking, and lot coverage. The zoning will be subject to all Agricultural (A) Zone requirements as well as the following provisions: • Minimum lot frontage 60m • Maximum lot coverage 85 % • Minimum Front yard setback 10m • Rear yard setback 15m • North Interior yard setback 10m • South interior yard setback 8m • Storm water management pond setbacks 3m from all lot lines • Minimum parking requirements for greenhouse of 1 space per 2 ha ( 4.94 ac) of growing space and season worker housing unit (bunkhouse) 5 spaces plus 1 space per every 30 beds The subject lands are designated as Heavy Industrial in the Official Plan. The Official Plan allows agriculture uses to exist as a continued use in the Heavy Industrial designation. THE EFFECT OF THE ZONING BY-LAW AMENDMENT will be to allow for a commercial greenhouse operation to be constructed on the subject parcels with site specific zoning provisions and the protection of habitat and natural environment.

General Amherst quarterback Emmitt Rosati throws a pass during last Thursday’s game. The Bulldogs lost the WECSSAA “AA” semi-final 38-0 to Kennedy. By Ron Giofu The General Amherst Bulldogs made the WECSSAA “AA” football playoffs but ran up against a strong opponent in the semi-finals. The Bulldogs travelled to Windsor Stadium last Thursday afternoon and lost 38-0 to the Kennedy Clippers, the latter team coached by former General Amherst head coach Jim MacDougall. The Clippers put the game away early to advance to this week’s WECSSAA “AA” final against Cardinal Carter. Kennedy got on the board on the first play from scrimmage, an 84-yard touchdown run. They tacked on a 15-yard touchdown pass and a 14-yard touchdown run later in the first quarter,

all capped with two-point conversions, and the Clippers led 24-0 after the first quarter. A seven-yard touchdown run, with extra point, and an 87-yard screen pass for a touchdown, with the extra point being blocked, gave Kennedy a 37-0 halftime advantage. A single point off a punt through the end zone provided the 38th and final Kennedy point in the third quarter. “It was a very tough go having to face one of the top four teams in all of WECSSAA,” said General Amherst head coach John Rudak. “The guys wanted to play and get another game in. My objective was to get as many guys in the game as possible.” The Bulldogs will be losing 13 senior players to graduation, including quarterback Emmitt Rosati. Rosati, who was strong on defense and special teams as well, will be suiting up as a quarterback at the University of Windsor next season. “We wish him the best of luck at the University of Windsor,” said Rudak. General Amherst has some solid Grade 9 players they are developing with some other good players returning, he added. “I believe we have a good group of Grade 9’s that are going to feed the program,” said Rudak. The Bulldogs played in the WECSSAA Tier 1 West division this season, a move up from the lower tier which is seen as more of a developmental division. They went undefeated last year and decided to try and move up, with results going pretty much as Rudak and the coaches expected. They won twice, had two competitive games, and ran up against powerhouse high school programs like Kennedy and Holy Names this year. Rudak praised his team and the effort they showed this season, noting a third regular season win “would have helped us out.” They were 2-4 in the regular season.

Boys volleyball season concludes at General Amherst High School

Town council allows resident to keep her “therapy chickens” By Ron Giofu A local woman is being granted permission to keep her therapy chickens. Miranda Ronholm asked town council for permission that she be allowed to keep her backyard chicken, telling elected officials she suffers from epilepsy and the chickens have helped her deal with her condition. “They keep me calm,” said Ronholm. “They provide me with love and affection.” Ronholm told town council the chickens have their own coop and she is willing to share the eggs with “neighbours I do get along with.” There has been a complaint filed with the Town of Amherstburg. “They are very quiet,” Ronholm said of her chickens. “They keep me calm and safe.” Ronholm feared that if she was forced to get rid of her backyard chickens, that would make her sad and

depressed, adding she would be willing to obtain a license or permit in order to keep her chickens. “Some people say they are gross and dirty but they are not,” she said. “I’m really hoping you will allow me to keep my chickens to maintain my health.” Manager of licensing and enforcement Nicole Rubli noted the town is awaiting on provincial animal legislation to come forward before finalizing its animal control bylaw. As there is a bylaw in the works, Councillor Michael Prue made the motion to allow the backyard chickens. Prue added he didn’t want to see enforcement action taken by the town if, in the long-run, it might be allowed anyway, depending on what the new bylaw states. Mayor Aldo DiCarlo encouraged Ronholm to keep her eyes open for when the bylaw returns to town council in case she would like to come back and speak about it.

The season concluded for the General Amherst junior boys volleyball team (pictured) and the senior team as well last week. The seniors were eliminated from the playoffs last Monday at Catholic Centrall while L’Essor eliminated the junior boys last Tuesday at General Amherst. By Ron Giofu The General Amherst senior and junior boys volleyball teams have finished the 2019 WECSSAA seasons. Both teams entered the WECSSAA “AA” playoffs last week with the senior boys heading to Catholic Central last Monday while the junior Bulldogs hosted L’Essor last Tuesday afternoon. The senior Bulldogs were swept in three straight games at Catholic Central, with the Comets winning 25-16, 25-12 and 25-17. The next day, the season ended for the junior team as they lost in four games as L’Essor won 26-24, 26-28, 26-24 and 25-17. Craig Lohnes, the coach of both teams, was pleased with the efforts of the Bulldogs despite the results. “It was a competitive match,” he said after last Tuesday’s junior match. The goal for both teams this season was to get better as it went on and Lohnes said both teams accomplished that. “I’m really happy with the way we progressed,” he said. “It was a good season.” The junior Bulldogs, who finished the regular season with a 5-5 record, were “a good group of kids to coach,” he added. “They worked hard and took pride in playing volleyball.” The senior Bulldogs didn’t play their best game last Monday afternoon at Catholic Central and ran up against a team that went 10-0 in Tier 2. “(Catholic Central) came out strong. They have a couple of good hitters and they pulled it out,” said Lohnes. Injuries hurt the senior Bulldogs late in the year, including losing Mason Foreman to an ankle injury in the final regular season game. The senior team, who finished the WECSSAA Tier 1 season 2-8, will lose some players to graduation but Lohnes believes they will still put out a good team next season with players coming up from the junior ranks. “Despite our record, we had a lot of close games in senior,” said Lohnes. “I’m proud of our team.”
