Spring sun ideal for optimum renewable energy production

St. Marys electrical contractor Andy Forman soaks in the rays beside one of the “microFIT” solar trackers installed by his company. Forman says the converters on the panels tend to work more efficiently in cold weather, so those trackers which are hooked to the Ontario Hydro grid have the potential to earn more money at this time of year than they might on a similarly-sunny summer’s day. Not everyone who has installed a microFIT tracker is smiling, however; a Letter to the Editor — which will appear in next week’s Journal Argus — explains the troubling situation encountered by a family just north of St. Marys, after being told Hydro’s grid isn’t yet ready for their solar tracker to be hooked in. Forman is aware of such instances, and encourages people to stay in close contact with the Ontario Power Authority in an effort to hasten the process. Based on his experience so far, it will be worth the wait. (Slater photo)

Speeder charged with possession On Monday March 28, at approximately 7 p.m., a Perth County OPP officer was conducting radar patrol on Hwy. 7 (Elginfield Rd). The officer observed a fast-moving, west-bound vehicle which was subsequently locked in on the police radar in excess of the posted speed limit. The vehicle was stopped by the OPP. While speaking with the driver, the officer detected a strong odour of freshly-burnt cannabis marijuana inside the vehicle. Cannabis marijuana was handed over by the driver and a search of the vehicle turned up other marijuana paraphernalia. Jonathan Reiger, age 20, from Stratford was served an Appearance Notice for a charge of Possession of Schedule II Cannabis Marijuana contrary to the Controlled Drug and Substances Act. He is scheduled to appear in Stratford Provincial Court on April 26 to answer to this charge.

April is Poetry Month and, to celebrate, the St. Marys Public Library and Stewart Books are hosting a night of James MacRae Poetry at the downtown Queen Street bookstore. The event starts at 7 p.m. in the form of a coffeehouse. Brian Busby has produced a small book of early poems by MacRae. MacRae, born “John James MacDonald” near the Eastern Ontario town of Alexandria, took up farming in Downie Township before soon moving to St. Marys in 1875. He lived here until his death in 1939, publishing three books of poetry on his own, as well as contributing to a more widely-distributed collaboration with three other Southwestern Ontario poets entitled “The Four Jameses”. He even sent a few letters to the St. Marys Journal Argus. Come out for a night of poetry, music and fun. For more information, please phone the Library at 519284-3346.

There’s only one way to go.

of Rob Zombie and Eli Roth. One of these trailers was actually a contest winner submitted by Nova Scotian filmmaker Jason Eisener. Eisener’s winning trailer featured a shotgun-wielding hobo and was entitled, you guessed it, Hobo with a Shotgun. Eisener has now made his fake trailer into a full length feature. Not only does it tread that fine line between much and much too much perfectly, but it’s also Canadian! Rutger Hauer star as the Hobo, who arrives in a crime-ridden town in a boxcar and is soon wronged by the local thugs. He sets out to right wrongs the only way he knows how: with a shotgun! (Note: that’s a variation of an actual line from the film.) The film is chock full of Canadian references including George Stroumboulopoulos getting stabbed by a hockey skate, as well as half the cast of Trailer Park Boys along with their extended families. Best of all, the song that plays during the end credits? That’s Run With Us, the closing theme to the Canadian animated series The

Raccoons. That’s how awesome this movie is. The violence is gory and over the top, and the red paint flows. However, Eisener keeps to the overall B-movie motif and makes sure it’s done as fakey as possible. No CGI in this movie; when someone’s head explodes, the filmmakers make next to no effort to hide the fact that it’s actually a Jellofilled balloon. Likewise, the scenes between the action meant to humanize the characters is rife with corny dialogue, and contain some of the best (by which I mean worst!) lines in the film. It’s hard to endorse Hobo with a Shotgun because it’s bad; it’s a terrible movie. But it’s SO terrible, it’s awesome; and the fact that its awfulness was done on purpose makes it highly commendable. Let me put it this way: If you have no sense of kitsch; if you genuinely hated The Rocky Horror Picture Show due to its weirdness; if you’ve never seen a Roger Corman, Troma, or even an Evil Dead film, skip Hobo with a Shotgun. For everyone else, strap yourself in for some wacky, unorthodox entertainment. Hobo with a Shotgun delivers…one shell at a time. Questions? Comments? Email .

There are two ways a film can be declared “So Bad it’s Good”: By accident and on purpose. If it’s by accident then there’s not much a filmmaker can do but sheepishly shrug and pretend the cornball techniques he used that has garnered him cult status were meant to be tongue-in-cheek. But what about when a filmmaker sets out to make a film that’s So Bad it’s Good? Surely it must be an easy feat to emulate all the wrong things? You would think so, but it’s not; and films of this nature often don’t go far enough, such as Snakes on a Plane, or get carried away, such as any straight-to-DVD feature starring Paulie Shore, Paris Hilton, or Vince from the Slap Chop commercial. Enter Grindhouse, Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino’s tribute to 1970’s era pulp films. The effects were purposely bad, the dialogue deliberately corny, and even the film stock was scratched to give it an authentic ratty feel. Between the two Grindhouse feature films, Rodriguez’ Planet Terror and Tarantino’s Death Proof, were various fake trailers for similarly “bad” movies directed by the likes

Cancer and young Canadians Canadian Cancer Society led research says that young people with cancer (aged 15-29) have made impressive gains in survival, but more needs to be done to meet the unique challenges of cancer in this age group. The report – Canadian adolescents and young adults with cancer – a critical opportunity for improving coordination and level of care – was published online November 29, 2010 in the Canadian Medical Association Journal. The report examines current Canadian data on cancer in teenagers and young adults and reviews the literature on the obstacles faced by this age group in receiving care. “We are pleased that there have been impressive gains in survival for young people with cancer,” says Dr Prithwish De, lead investigator and an epidemiologist with the Society. “However, the unique healthcare issues faced by young people with cancer can affect their prospects for survival and quality of life.” Statistics from the research report showed:

• Young people with cancer account for about 2% of all patients diagnosed with cancer in Canada. • On average, there were 2,252 new cancer cases among young people per year in Canada from 2002 to 2006. • From 2001 to 2005, the overall five-year survival for this age group in Canada was 85 per cent. By comparison, the survival for young Europeans (aged 15-24) diagnosed with cancer between 1995 and 2002 was 87 per cent, and ranged from 84 per cent in Northern Ireland to 92 per cent in Italy. • The overall age-standardized cancer incidence rate for young people with cancer in Canada rose slightly between 1997 and 2006. • For young males the incidence rate rose 0.9 per cent per year; for females 1.7 per cent per year • The overall age-standardized death rate for this age group in Canada declined significantly between 1996 and 2005. • For young males the death rate dropped by 3.2 per cent per year; for females 1.7 per cent per year

“The relatively small number of young people with cancer does not accurately convey the huge impact this disease has on the patients, their families and society,” says Dr De. “Cancer is not something they were expecting to deal with at this stage in their lives. Educational pursuits and careers may be sidetracked and a cancer diagnosis could put a strain on relationships.” Challenges to improving cancer care for young adults are: • Timely diagnosis: Healthcare providers, as well as young people, need to be more aware that cancer can affect all ages. Being vigilant can allow a cancer diagnosis to be made early when treatment is most effective. • Prompt referral: Timely referral to specialist care is important so that young people with aggressive but treatable cancers (such as testicular cancer and non-Hodgkin lymphoma) can benefit from comprehensive care and access to clinical trials. • Clinical trials: While the overall cancer survival rate for young people is 85 per cent, they have had slower gains in survival compared to older and younger age groups because of low participation in clinical trials. Taking part in a clinical trial allows access to cuttingedge treatments and closer monitoring of patients, which often lead to better survival. About 10–20 per cent of Canadian teenagers with cancer take part in clinical trials compared to nearly 60 per cent of children in the US. • Peer support: The treatment environment for young cancer patients should include patients of similar age so young patients feel less isolated and discussion of such topics as body image, intimacy and sexuality can occur with peers. • Coordination of care: Coordination of hospital and community care for young survivors can support their re-entry into society following treatment. “Every person with cancer deserves the best care and strong support,” says Dr De. To find out more about the Society’s services, including those for young people with cancer, call the Society’s Cancer Information Service at 1-888-939-3333 or visit

Canadian Cancer Society statistics Thanks to the work of volunteers and staff, and the generosity of donors, the Canadian Cancer Society is leading the fight against cancer. The Society acts by: • Trying to prevent cancer from ever occurring • Funding research to outsmart cancer • Rallying Canadians to make cancer history • Empowering, informing and supporting Canadians living with cancer The following is a list of accomplishments by the Society: • A recent evaluation of the Canadian Cancer Society’s research grants program found that researchers funded by the Society are making a bigger scientific impact than other researchers in Canada. The evaluation found that researchers funded by the Society publish more papers, publish these papers in the most prestigious scientific journals and are referenced more often by other researchers. • Today, 62 per cent of people diagnosed with cancer will survive the disease, compared with one in three in the 1960s. Thanks to Society-funded research, the treatment and the quality of life during treatment has dramatically improved in the past 20 years. There is still much work to be done. Cancer still directly affects the lives of thousands of Canadians: • In 2010, an estimated 65,100 Ontarians were diagnosed with cancer and another 28,200 died of the disease. • For Ontario men, prostate cancer is the most frequently diagnosed type of cancer (an estimated 10,200 diagnosed in 2010), followed by colorectal cancer and lung cancer, respectively. • For Ontario women, breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed type of cancer (an estimated 8,900 diagnosed in 2010), followed by colorectal cancer and lung cancer respectively. • In both men and women, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death. An estimated 6,700 Ontarians died of lung cancer in 2010.

With “Daffodil Month” — set aside each year by the Canadian Cancer Society for its major fundraising drive — now around the corner, local organizers want to make sure the public is aware of some changes in the campaign. New this year, in addition to the traditional sale of daffodils this Friday, April 1, the Canadian Cancer Society will be selling daffodil pins by donation. “The daffodil pin is to be worn as a symbol of courage and support in honour of cancer survivors, loved ones and friends currently on a cancer journey,” stated a news release last week. “To some, the daffodil is just a flower. To us, it is a symbol of strength and courage, a symbol of life. When you wear a daffodil pin throughout the month of April, you are uniting behind everyone living with cancer.” In St. Marys, Daffodil Month campaign organizers Eleanor Monteith and Julie Robson report that fresh flower sales — with the help of numerous sales volunteers — will take place Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at three locations: Scotiabank, the LCBO, and the Independent grocery store. Monteith and Robson expressed appreciation to those businesses for welcoming the sales volunteers, and also to Hearn’s Dairy for taking in and storing the local campaign’s shipment of dafEleanor Monteith, one of the local organizers of the Canadian Cancer fodils.

To some the daffodil is just a flower. To us, it is a symbol of strength and courage. It says we will not give up. It says we will fight back. It says we will beat cancer. April, commonly known as Daffodil Month, is the month to fight back against cancer. It’s a time when thousands of volunteers across Ontario work together to raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society by selling bright, yellow daffodils and knocking on doors in their community to collect donations. And this April, we are stepping up the fight by introducing a new daffodil pin as part of the campaign. We are asking all Ontarians to unite behind those living with cancer by making a donation and wearing the iconic yellow flower. In honour of Daffodil Month, here are a few quick facts about our annual fundraising campaign and the latest cancer statistics. Did you know? • The Canadian Cancer Society has been selling daffodils to help fight cancer for more than 50 years. • Last year in Ontario, daffodil sales raised more than $2.8 million for the Canadian Cancer Society. • Last year in Ontario, $7.3 million was raised during Daffodil Month.

Jr. badminton team has great day at Invitational STRATFORD - The DCVI Junior Badminton team had a great day at their first tournament of the season here Thursday, Mar. 24. The team took on South Huron, Mitchell, St. Michael and Stratford Central in the Stratford Badminton Club Invitational at the Agriplex. Altogether, 11 high schools competed, including two Catholic schools. The day-long event featured over 250 players. Salukis came up against South Huron in their first round of play. The girls doubles team of Maria Leis and Kristyn Armstrong played aggressively and maintained great court positioning to win both of their games, 21-10 and 21-11. Jordan Stroud, playing in the girls singles division, split her opening match, just losing the first game 21-19 and then dominating the second with well placed shots to win 21-11. The St. Marys girls continued their winning ways in the next round, this time against Mitchell Blue Devils. Leis and Armstrong worked to improve their shot placement, and took both games, 21-11 and 21-12. Stroud improved to 3-1 on the day, with better movement on the court and took both of her games, 22-20 and 21-19. Aidan Fullerton, in boys singles, took the opening game in his second match, 21-8, showing great control with wellexecuted net play. Ryan Sleeper and Matt Conn teamed up to compete as the DCVI boys doubles entry, and also recorded a victory against Mitchell. The pair lost their first game 21-18, but were able to read their opponents weaknesses, and won the second game, 21-15. As a team, Salukis took six of a possible 10 points in the second round. In their third and final round-robin match against St. Michael, the Juniors again took six out of the 10 games. Fullerton’s great footwork and clever shot selection earned him a sweep in his match against a very good club player,

winning 21-19 and 21-15. Everyone else also won one of their games. Armstrong and Leis took the first game, 21-19, but dropped the second, 21-14. Stroud, likewise, won her opening game, a tough 21-19 battle, then lost 21-16. In boys doubles, Sleeper and Conn moved really well together on the court, but lost in extra points 22-20, in their first game, but then re-grouped to take the second, 21-15. In mixed doubles, Brittany Baker and Jack Hutton, lost 21-16, then turned things around with good serving, better movement on the court and more aggressive play, to take the second game, 21-19. The team finished second in their pool, behind South Huron, who eventually finished second in the tournament, and advanced to the quarter-finals, to take on Stratford Central. Rams had only lost three games in the entire tournament thus far. Although they played well, Salukis fell to a much more experienced Central team, who had a number of club players, and were eliminated from further play.

Lady Schleprocks win three


Host St. Thomas this Thursday at DCVI The Lady Schleprocks enjoyed a successful week with wins in three of four games. On Tuesday, March 22, the double blue got off to a fast start and hung on for a 40-26 victory over Precious Blood Catholic School from Exeter. Emma Watt and Cassie Fenz led the offensive attack for St. Marys, which led by as many as 25 points before coasting down the stretch. Solid defensive play from Marissa Horenberg and Amelia Ritchie were keys for the Schleprocks. St. Marys then lost a thrilling 31-30 contest to the Mitchell Mavericks after a last second shot by Cassie Fenz came up just short. Strong shooting by Mia Valcke and an impressive steal and late-game lay-up by Amanda Roberts were highlights of the game for the Schleprocks. Determined to avenge that narrow loss, the ladies came out with renewed

defensive intensity last Saturday morning at Mitchell high school and their commitment to defence staked St. Marys to an impressive 30-16 decision. Strong rebounding by Nicole Marriott and excellent defence by Jensen Dundas and Abbey Thorup allowed the Schleprocks to prevail. Ashlyn Maxwell and Cassie Fenz were the offensive heroes of the contest with a number of baskets scored off penetration to the net. Schleprocks wrapped up the weekend with an 18-10 decision over Wingham. Once again, it was defensive pressure that proved to be the difference. Janieka Droog, April Clark and Amelia Ritchie made a number of steals while the rebounding of Horenberg, Roberts and Marriott denied the Wingham team any second chances. Schleprocks now sport an overall record of five wins and three losses. This week will see games in Aylmer and a home game against St. Thomas at DCVI this Thursday, Mar. 31. Come on out to DCVI and see your Stonetown Schleprocks in action. Game time is 6 p.m.

Hoops huddle Coach Nancy Davis huddles with her DCVI Elementary boys basketball team, which recently completed a fantastic season.
