NATIONAL CHAMPS Dan, Terry Gowan and Dufferin-Simcoe Oldtimers team win second consecutive Canadian Championship

The Dufferin-Simcoe Rockers Oldtimers Baseball Team travelled to Vancouver, B.C. on the August long weekend where they successfully defended the Canadian National Oldtimers Baseball Championship they won last year in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. The Rockers, with number 29 on their uniform sleeves in memory of their late manager Paul ‘Siv’ Carruthers of Duntroon, who passed away in May, went undefeated in the tournament.

They defeated Spring Lake, Alberta 8-1, Comox, B.C. 2-1, and Burlington, Ontario 5-3 in the preliminary round, followed by a 4-2 win over Edmonton, Alberta in the semi-finals. The Rockers faced Comox once again in the championship game, scoring six runs in the first inning on route to an 8-2 victory. This is the third National Championship for the Rockers in the last six years. The team features two Creemore residents, Dan Gowan (who also currently plays for the Creemore Braves) and Terry Gowan, two former Creemore residents, Rick Coker and Bob Forbes, and one former Creemore Brave, Kevin Green. For results from the first game of the Braves’ first round playoff series against the Lisle Astros, see page 10.

Keep an eye out for, and be wary of, Giant Hogweed We’ve been receiving many calls from horticulturally minded people with concerns about Giant Hogweed, an invasive species currently moving into the area. Here is the information recently ciruclated by the Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority regarding the plant. Where does Giant Hogweed come from? Giant Hogweed (Heracleum mantegazzianum) is a plant native to Asia. It was likely introduced to North America as an ornamental garden plant. With no known diseases or insect pests here in Canada, the plant has escaped into the wild and has become an invasive species which threatens our natural ecosystems. What does it look like? Giant hogweed resembles some of our native species such as Angelica, Queen Anne’s Lace, and Cow parsnip. Unlike native species, Hogweed can grow up to 5 metres tall and has an herbaceous stem 5 to 10 centimetres in diameter. The stem and leaf stalks are hollow, covered with coarse hairs, and are often purple-spotted. The compound leaf is deeply grooved and can span one metre across. In summer, Hogweed produces a white umbrella-shaped flower from June to July, which will produce large flat oval seeds. Where is it found? Although native to Asia, Giant Hogweed has invaded many regions of the world, including Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States. Locally, sightings have been reported in the towns of Collingwood, New Tecumseth, Mono and the townships of Adjala-Tosorontio, Essa and Mulmur. Hogweed is able to live in a variety of habitats, but is generally found in moist soils. It is often seen along roadside ditches, stream banks, and vacant lots. How does Giant Hogweed impact our local environment? With its broad leaves and dense canopy, Giant Hogweed often out-competes native species, reducing the variety of species that grow in the surrounding area. Its invasive potential is increased by the vast number of seeds it can produce – up to 50,000 per plant! These seeds can spread short distances by the wind, be carried by wildlife or human activity or float downstream in rivers to colonize new areas. Generally they are found within 10 metres of the parent plants. Seeds can remain viable for 7 to 15 years. Be cautious around Giant Hogweed Giant Hogweed poses a serious health threat – if you come across it or think you have it on your property, do not touch it. Hogweed stalks, leaves, and bristles contain a noxious sap that sensitizes skin to sunlight. Contact between the skin and sap can occur by brushing up against or breaking the plant’s bristles, stalks or leaves. Once the sap comes into contact with skin, exposure to sunlight can cause severe burns and painful blistering, usually within 48 hours. Blisters can develop into purple and black scars, leading to years of recurring inflammation and dermatitis (skin irritation), as well as permanent scarring. Contact between the sap and eyes can lead to temporary or permanent blindness. Safety tips for working around Giant Hogweed Please follow these safety tips when working in and around Giant Hogweed:

Giant Hogweed making its presence known near a beaver pond in Severn Township. • Wear full-length clothing and closed-toed shoes, being careful to not leave bare skin exposed • Wear gloves, a mask and safety helmet with face shield if undertaking any Hogweed control measures • Immediately launder clothing that has come into contact with Giant Hogweed • Use soap and water to wash down equipment that has made contact with Hogweed What to do if you’ve come into contact with Giant Hogweed • Cover up affected areas and keep them out of direct sunlight • Wash affected areas immediately with soap and cold water • Seek medical attention as soon as possible Options for controlling Giant Hogweed The Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority lists these options for controlling Giant Hogweed as suggestions only and does not assume responsibility for any health issues that may arise from landowners coming into contact with Giant Hogweed. • Weed whackers and mowing should not be used to control Hogweed plants because it can spray the phototoxic sap into the air, exposing the operator to potential injury. Mowing will not eradicate Giant Hogweed effectively and serves only to stimulate budding on the rootstalk. Plants are able to re-sprout and flower again in the same season when mowed. • Small infestations can be effectively hand-pulled or dug up (using proper safety measures). Isolated plants should be carefully removed in order to stop them from invading larger areas. It is important that the removed plants be double or triple-bagged in garbage bags (clear works best but black is also suitable) and laid out in the sun to liquefy for a minimum of one week before disposing of them in the trash. Do not place bags in the trash before the sun treatment or compost the plants as this will lead to further seed dispersal and infestation. • Large infestations of Giant Hogweed can be treated with the herbicide Roundup (available at home and garden retail centres). Under the new Cosmetic

Photo Chris Evans

Pesticide Ban, landowners are able to use Roundup (a Class 7 pesticide) to control poisonous plants on their own property. An initial application is best applied between March and early June, and again in July or August to kill any remaining plants. To minimize impacts on non-target species, spray only when there is no wind, avoid spraying near water, follow all herbicide directions, and only apply as permitted under the pesticide ban. For more information on pesticide use and restrictions, call the Ontario Ministry of the Environment’s Public Information Centre at 1-800-565-4923 or visit www.ene.gov.on.ca/en/land/ pesticides/ • Monitor the same location in following years (spring and summer). Seeds in the soil can be viable for 7 to 15 years, so continued vigilance in monitoring the area for newly germinating plants is important. Report all Giant Hogweed and other invasive species sightings to the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters/Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources by calling the Invading Species Hotline at 1-800-563-7711 or visit www.invadingspecies. com. Please report sightings of Giant Hogweed in the Nottawasaga Valley watershed to the NVCA by calling Brad Pettersone at (705) 424-1479, ext. 260, or emailing bpettersone@nvca.on.ca. Please note that the NVCA does not have the resources to assist with removal of Giant Hogweed. THE LORD HAS BLESSED THEM WITH 50 YEARS........

Opinion EDITORIAL

The Boys of Summer

Seats at the Rogers Centre may be mostly empty these days and the Toronto Blue Jays may be a pale shadow of the team they were in the early 1990s, but that hasn’t changed the status of baseball around here. The Creemore/New Lowell area has always been a baseball hotbed, and as our front page story this week shows, it continues to be. For the second year in a row, a team of Oldtimers made up of present and former NDBL players and featuring a sizable Creemore contingent has laid claim to a national championship, which is certainly something to be proud of. And our own Braves started their 2010 playoff march with a win this week, hoping to return to the not-toodistant glory years of 2005 to 2008, when they won four NDBL championships in a row (they have won 16 in total since 1931, six more than any other team in the league). If any of you have an appreciation for the grand old game of baseball, if you enjoy the lazy rhythm of innings and outs, but you have never been to a Creemore Braves game, we encourage you to check them out. The baseball is high-calibre, and the home team has a proud history. There’s no time like the present to jump on the bandwagon.

Allow community investment in wind power What brought you here? Dear Editor: We have been presented with a litany of positions in meetings and the press recently about the risks and benefits of wind turbines. Even with a Master’s degree in engineering, the one thing I know about science is that it is easy to manipulate in the court of public opinion. If it weren’t so, seatbelts would have been mandatory long before they were, smoking would have been banned in public places long before it was and governments would have acted on climate change way before they did (or didn’t). So I do not propose to weigh in on the science of wind turbines. What I do believe is definitely wrong about industrial wind is that a few neighbours impose scenic and sonic  changes  on many.  Pitting neighbours against  each other is obviously disastrous  for communities. Having green energy doesn’t matter if it is powering unstable communities. Unless there is community buy-in, industrial wind is a bad idea. If they needed  to have community investment to obtain the increased rates that make them attractive to Bay Street, then  they would  exist where they should exist. Community investment  is something that was applied in the island of Samso  in Denmark, and I believe it should be seriously explored here before we get into neighbourhood destruction. From personal experience of nine weeks of travelling in Southern Europe, we saw at least one turbine every day, but almost never in clusters like we are seeing in Ontario. In the Black Forest, which has a profile very similar to Mulmur, they were widely spaced. There are lessons to be learned that we do not seem interested in.

I believe the engagement resulting from community involvement would be that accurate medical, scientific and economic information would be developed rather than the confrontational, litigation-inspired approach we are seeing today. I think we have prepared as a society to make that kind of change to how we make decisions. The end result would be turbine locations that would be optimized for all. I believe this is a responsible alternative to rapid industrialization, which after all has created the need for green energy in the first place. I even have an acronym for it: ACTION – Approve Community Turbines In Ontario. Peter Halsall, Smithdale

Local historian searches for poem Letter to the Editor: I am looking for a copy of the poem that goes “I saw them chase the gypsies / Out of the little town / And it made me think of autumn leaves / Red, yellow and brown.” It was in an English book I had in Grade 10.

Dear Editor: We moved our family to this beautiful location 20 years ago. We came for the clean, clear air, the hiking, swimming, skiing/boarding and golf. We delight in the birds; the wildlife sightings; the trout in the fast-flowing streams in the spring; the extensive trails; the snowy, cold winters; the rural, green vistas and spectacular Nottawasaga Bay. I think this is why most of us enjoy Simcoe County. Are these things slowly disappearing? When we realise this will it be too late? As we continue to expand, precious wetlands are threatened;  the Niagara Escarpment, a World Biosphere and local treasure at our footsteps, is being violated; the farmlands and escarpment lands are rapidly turning into commercial developments; increased traffic is causing congestion and car fumes; the cherished, small-town community interactions are less evident and litter/vandalism are on the rise.  Re-examine what brought and keeps you here. What qualities draw in the tourists by the thousands? Without our natural attractions we become an everywhere place. It is the responsibility of every citizen to learn what values your Councillors represent. If these treasures we share are a concern to you, please come and express your views at a public meeting organized by AWARE-Simcoe on Saturday, August 14, from 10 am to 12:30 pm at the Father Allard Hall, St. Mary,s Church, 63 Elgin St., Collingwood.

Above: Diane McKay instructs the troops at the home of Sylvia and Warren Gale. Below: Breaktime for the hungry workers. The fact that Warren is a Second World War veteran made the visit extra special for the cadets.

Diane McKay of the Creemore Tree Committee had previously had these young folks help them plant bushes and trees and do weeding and such, so they were the folks in charge of allotting the cadets out to do a variety of jobs. I had inquired about having some of them down here to trim back brush, etc., and when they arrived (two busses full!), there were about 75 eager young folks ready to work. They had their own military supervisors, but Diane McKay knew exactly what to do to make everything go smoothly. They brought tools, gloves, a couple of folding tables, eight watermelons, a couple of coolers fixed up to add ice water to one, and water to lemonade concentrate in the other. I added a large container of almonds and one of jelly beans, and on their break the cadets, being normal, healthy young folks, devoured it all. They finished their time here by lining up across the end of the field and doing a “garbage sweep” to make sure it was all cleaned up. These were wonderful, friendly, polite young folks who, judging by their actions here, will be a credit to the military should they choose to carry on in that career. And we couldn’t have had anyone better than Brian and Diane to guide them in their jobs around Creemore and area. The quiet, laidback

You’ll get a warm welcome and cold beer.

but knowledgeable manner in which they informed the young folks just what they needed to be doing and how to get it done right was just perfect. All in all, a great experience, and yes, I do need them again if possible as things had really got behind around here. And as you know, the Manitoba maples (box elders) in this area will take advantage of you if you are not constantly cutting them back. We had a fun bus trip to Rama this week and again we would like to thank Norma Johnston for providing the goodies to soothe our sweet tooth – or would that be sweet teeth? Also, thanks to Betty Crawford for her humorous poem, and to everyone who brought jokes, even though the microphone wasn’t working very well. Our next trip is on September 7, and it is still only $5. Call Sylvia at 466-5732. And a note to Barbara and Craig Simpson – are you folks going to escape your bus trip to Rama with us? Our time may have run out to have the pleasure of your company on one of our zany outings, and it’s not often that we let someone who has expressed an interest in going with us get out of our clutches. So maybe when you are back for a visit? It is now August and, just for the heck of it, does anyone know where July went this year?

Braves take Game 1 of opening playoff series against Lisle by Fred Mills While the Oldtimers were defending their national title last weekend in Vancouver, New Lowell hosted a tournament to keep teams mentally and physically ready for the playoff run. In the first game, Creemore was defeated by Nepean 2-1 on Saturday. The Braves rebounded, edging out Mansfield 9-8 on Sunday. They were then squeaked out by the hosts by a score of 6-5.

On Wednesday night, the Braves began their quest for the NDBL Championship with a twilight game in Creemore. It was a pitching duel, with Lisle’s Mark Horan going toe to toe against Creemore’s Brad Grieveson. Grieveson went the distance, allowing only three hits and striking out 11 batters, earning him and the Braves the win and a 1-0 series lead. The Braves collected five hits, courtesy of Brett Trott, Bryan Post,

ROBERTSON, Mary Elizabeth (Keene) - With her devoted family by her side, our dearest Mary or "Meema" peacefully passed away Friday July 30, 2010. Mary is survived by her husband Stuart, her daughter Sydney and son James and her sister Susan Warner Keene. The family thanks the staffs of the General & Marine Hospital in Collingwood and the Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto for their care given to Mary and her family. In lieu of flowers, contributions to Georgian Bay Animal Rescue at PO Box 492, Collingwood ON L9Y 4B2 in Mary’s name would be most appreciated as an expression of her lifelong love of her cats, dog Ranger and her several horses. Mary also had an enduring love of plants and trees and was delighted to assist the Creemore Horticulture Society in its important work.
