FORMER CREEMORE RESIDENT MEDALS TWICE AT PAN AMS

Audra Vair, left, with her Pan Am Games silver-medal winning Quad teammates Isolda Penney, Buzzy McCord and Melanie Kok.

by Brad Holden Audra Vair, who grew up in the Creemore area and is still listed as a resident on the Rowing Canada database, was rewarded for years of training last week when she won two rowing medals at the Pan Am Games in Guadalajara, Mexico. On Monday, October 17, Vair won bronze in the Women’s Double event with her rowing partner, Elizabeth McCord of Toronto. She and an expanded team then went on to capture a silver medal in the Women’s Quad event on Wednesday, October 19. Vair grew up in Shamrock House, the steep-roofed house on the north side of County Road 9 just before Centre Line Road. She attended New Lowell Central Public School and began rowing at the age of fourteen, while attending Trinity College School in Port Hope, Ontario. In the summers, she would row at the Barrie Rowing Club with her father, Derek Vair, but moved on to row for the University of Ottawa and the Ottawa Rowing Club. After receiving her Undergraduate Degree in BioPharmaceuticals from the University of Ottawa, she went on to study Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the University of British Columbia, all the while rowing for UBC. After receiving her Master’s Degree, she came back to London, Ontario to row with the Canadian Development Team, where she remains until after the Nationals in November, at which time the finalists for the 2012 Olympic team will be announced. Vair is the daughter of Derek and Egle Vair, previously of Creemore. She is the niece of current residents Anna Narusis and Rita Fransen.

Medical Centre expansion delayed; health study to be done by Brad Holden In September, the Board of the Creemore Medical Centre was notified that their submission to the Federal Government for financial assistance in the expansion of the Medical Centre was incomplete and could not be considered at this time. The Board said they do not agree but acknowledged that the Government establishes the rules. This means that the attractiveness of the expansion proposal remains unevaluated by the Federal Government. Both the Township and the Board made it clear that they still feel that the proposal is an excellent one. They

have heard that the federal department involved will establish a fund next year for which the proposal would be eligible and they are preparing themselves to make a new submission. Dr. Kellie Leitch, the local MP is supporting the application. Bill Mann, the chair of the Medical Centre Board, explained that the Board’s prime responsibility in the past has been to act as landlord for the Medical Centre building. However, after discussions with several health service providers in the greater Clearview area, the Board has decided to expand its role to include

the assessment of the “wellness” of Creemore and its surrounding area. In particular, they are interested in learning about Creemore residents’ feelings about the adequacy of the town’s health services in covering their health needs. One key question, said Mann, was: “What’s missing for local residents in the way of health services they need?” Since there is currently no data available to answer this question, the Medical Centre Board has commissioned, with the support of Clearview Township, a market research study to provide the desired data. The study area will include

the southern end of Clearview as well as northern Mulmur. The research will be done by Resource Management Consulting Group of Barrie, who recently successfully completed a somewhat similar study for Collingwood’s General and Marine Hospital. The firm will be doing its research by phone during the first several weeks of November. It hopes to complete 400 questionnaires. The content of individual questionnaires will be completely confidential, with only summary analysis being made available to the Board. (See “Health” on page 3)

Council votes against speed limit change by Brad Holden Clearview Council heard a request Monday from Nottawasaga Concession 8 resident Greg Ashbee to lower the speed limit on the portion of that road from Dunedin north to the intersection of 9/10 Sideroad to 60 kilometres per hour. Ashbee described the road as being “too winding and hilly to drive safely” at the current posted speed limit of 80 kilometres per hour. He reported witnessing several single vehicle accidents there during the winter, and he brought with him signatures from most of the people who live on the road. A motion was brought forward by Councillor Brent Preston and seconded by Councillor Shawn Davidson to make the change, but when the question of the road’s suitability for a slower speed limit was put to Steve

Sage, the Township’s deputy director of public works, Sage told Council that he would not recommend a change. The density of housing on the road – there are currently 10 houses along that stretch – and a recent traffic study made him conclude that he had no safety concerns with the current speed limit. When the question was put to vote, there were four members for the motion (Councillors Preston, Davidson, Deb Bronee and Deputy Mayor Alicia Savage) and four against (Mayor Ken Ferguson and Councillors Thom Paterson, Doug Measures and Robert Walker). A tie vote meant that the motion was defeated. A second motion then passed, directing Sage to instead look into posting cautionary speed suggestions on the corners throughout the stretch of road.

VANDALISM

The Station on the Green was hit by graffiti taggers on Tuesday night, as was Cardboard Castles and the Creemore Meat Market building. Police were called and are on the lookout for the vandals. Luckily, the tags were written in a water-based paint so they were easily washed off. Perhaps coincidentally, or perhaps not, several pumpkins were stolen from a Halloween display at Seasons in Creemore the same night.

Health study to be done by phone (Continued from page 1)

A FAST GROUP The NCPS cross country running team posted great results at race held at Mount St.

Louis Moonstone on Tuesday, October 8. The event saw 1,500 kids racing from all across Simcoe County, and out of the nine students on the NCPS team, three placed in the top ten in their respective age divisions (with two finishing first!). The other team members all did well too, placing in the middle of the 100 to 200 people in their age groups. From left to right above are Madame DeBruijn (Coach), Jake Underhill (grade 7), Cooper Macgregor (grade 6), Cassidy Morgan (1st place – grade 6), Anna Carruthers (1st place – grade 5), Janneke Watt (4th place – grade 5) and Riley Henderson (grade 7) Absent: from the picture are Riley Lammlie (grade 6), Megan Christoforidis (grade 4) and Tyler Bryan (grade 4).

The Board requests that if you get a call from the research firm, they would very much appreciate your being willing to participate in the survey. They anticipate the results of the study will considerably strengthen the quality and credibility of the Centre’s revised expansion proposal to the Federal Government. The survey results will be shared with the community, and as an added bonus, there will be a draw for questionnaire respondents to win a $100 gift certificate good at any Creemore retailer.

Two Great Events

Creemore has always done Halloween well. In the old days, it was done by rolling hay bales down the main street and causing general havoc. And in the last 25 years or so, it’s been done by gathering together as a community on the main street, in the early days to ward off the vandals and in later days, after that tradition had been vanquished, just because it had become another one of this village’s lovely traditions. This year, that party will be opened up to the entire region. Hallowfest will be on Sunday afternoon instead of on trick-or-treating night, but it will no doubt be imbued with the same spirit that the main street parties have come to embody over the past couple of decades. We look forward to seeing you all out, dressed in you finest costumes and guiding your children through all the spookiness the event promises to offer. It’s perhaps ironic that the other big event happening this weekend, the Log Cabin opening celebrations on Saturday morning, are being championed by Pat and Chris Raible, the same people who came up with the original idea to hold a Halloween celebration on the main street. They’ve moved on to another great cause (after working for countless others in between) and the Cabin will be a great testament to our settler history. It’s also another great example of the community rallying behind a great idea.

LETTER

Praise for our poet

Dear Editor, We don’t live in Creemore anymore; we moved away two years ago but still look forward to getting our copies of the Echo in the mail and one of the highlights (apart from finding out what all of our friends in Creemore are doing) is reading Tim Armour’s poetry. We got such a kick from Tim’s masterpiece on apples (“Horse Sense”) in the October 14 issue. Who knew that you could rhyme Chile with  “silly” and Ontario with “scenario”! The man is a genius! And so comforting to read about all the delicious types of apples we in Ontario can enjoy.  Tim, you’re a real treasure in Creemore! Long may you flourish! Monica and Brian Shea, Toronto

LETTER

A “clarification” from the Station board To the Editor: A gentle clarification of the “Solar Gold” article about the Station on the Green on page 7 of the October 14 Creemore Echo. The Station on the Green is an agency of the Clearview municipality. It is managed by a volunteer board. The municipality did not “give” the Station $59,000. It loaned the Station $53,000 which is to repaid over 20 years from the sale of electricity generated by the solar panels under a 20-year

contract with the OPG. In addition to the $53,000 loaned by the Township, the Station spent an additional $30,000 of its own funds on additional panels and a new roof. The Station on the Board is grateful for the assistance of the Township and values this partnership. More importantly it values the support of the Creemore community which enables the operation to break even on an annual basis. Doug Mills, Station on the Green treasurer, Creemore

LETTER

When misguided acts transform into acts of kindness Dear Editor: This is a story that starts with someone having no consideration for others and finishes with several people showing what a true community is about. Someone who recently replaced a roof decided it was a better idea to dump their old shingles on our property instead of making the trip to the landfill themselves. Now, what would happen if all of us who replaced our roofs dumped them on our neighbour’s front yard? Thankfully, these people are a small minority as demonstrated by what happened next. Our truck had recently gone to recycling heaven at

Mid West Metals so our means of getting the shingles to the dump was gone. The Township was very supportive and sympathetic but understandably, explained that they couldn’t pick up waste on private property. After hearing about our dilemma, a contractor said he had a tractor and could load a trailer. A friend said he had a trailer and another friend said we could borrow her truck to tow the trailer. We loaded the first of what would become three dump runs which also lead to my first official “dump date” (complete with delicious rotis from Angie’s after our dirty deed was done). Two weeks later after being away, we returned to find that

the trailer had been loaded again and another trip to the dump had taken place in our absence. What can we say other than it’s wonderful how people respond to support others facing an otherwise negative situation. We owe a debt of gratitude and heartfelt thanks to Jeff for the tractor, Murray for the trailer and Jackie for the wheels. Your kindness and friendship are what makes this community so extraordinary. And if anyone has recently replaced their roof and wants to see some shingle samples left behind, let me know. They’re red. Barb and Peter Halsall, Glen Huron

Creemore Big Heart Seniors Seniors

Today was one of our ended with homemade “special “ lunches, catered pie. Our thanks to Joan by the folks of Dunedin Monaghan for delivering Hall. As we arrived, we the take-out lunch to Bob sat in at a table – and Veale. After Ray thanked got hungrier as the good the friendly folks from smells wafted out of the Dunedin Hall for a great kitchen. Then, just about meal, we all headed back Sylvia GALE at “dig in” time, Wayne to Creemore for cards. Hammill hustled out of At the Legion, Barb the kitchen and made a mad dash Pilon regaled everyone with a joke, out the door. As he’s leaving, he and then the 50/50 draws went to Pat is explaining that they forgot the Broad, Joan Monaghan, George carving knife for the roasts at home, Blakney, Ray Broad, Ray Leighton, and he was going to get it. As he is Irma Flack, Karl Seifert, Charlie leaving, I’m thinking “Oh no! Donna Donaghey and Irene Dolson. sent a MAN to find something in the Moon shots were played by Wilma kitchen? What was she thinking?” Bannerman, Mercedes Veinot, But Wayne obviously has a better Roy Veinot, Dave Smith, Peter grasp on the situation than most men Gubbels, Pat Winger, Phyllis Seed, do as he was back in short order and Kevin Keogh, George Blakney and putting the knife to good use. And Marcia Cameron. Marcia won the he did get a nice cheer for returning travelling prize, and Roy won the so quickly! Sidewinders loot. Irma Flack gave the blessing, and High scorers were Jim Murray then, as Bob Veale was absent, Ray 300, Evelyn Warden 299, Diane Leighton was the “Head Honcho” Watt 279 and Norma Johnston 276.  who got to designate which table got Low was Marj Thomson with 82. to go  first – and second – and third Wow! After we picked up our mail, and so on  in the grub line to the I finally wrestled the Echo away from serving table. This can be a dangerous that chuckling man with the big black job when there are 60 some hungry eyes so I could see what so amused seniors all wanting to be first! But him on the “Editor’s” page. When Ray persevered, and everyone was I saw the “Way We Were” enlarged well fed with a lovely meal which photo and caption, my first thought

was “Oh no! I’m not really a bossy old beldame, am I?” Then it sunk in – what they put in print is what they do in practice at the Echo – go way out of their way to make things easier for me. Many times the Senior’s News arrives on Brad’s computer as Part 1, Part 2 and so on, and then he cobbles it all together so it makes sense. And, all I have to do is phone and say, “oh, oh, I forgot to mention something,” and sure enough, it appears just where I would have put it, had I been thinking straight in the first place. Truly, we have a great crew at the Echo. We get lots of local coverage, pictures, and local input in articles, poems and letters, and that is most interesting and important to everyone. So thanks, guys, for the great enlargement. One can now clearly identify the choir, and you can also see the pipes that were part of the old organ that was replaced some years ago. But does anyone recognize the person who is coming in the door behind the choir? We enjoyed having daughter Sharon and husband Guy home for dinner for a week or so. Sharon declared war on my seriously overstuffed cupboard drawers and storage spaces. The end result was a lot more space in my cupboards, and several garbage bags full of goodies

to go to charity. It sure is nice to have spare room in the cupboards. But, sure as shooting, there will be a use come up for something I haven’t used in the last several years, but soon as it’s gone you remember just why you kept it in the first place! My thanks (again) to those wonderful neighbours we have – this time to Jennifer Whitley for volunteering to pick up the bags for the Diabetes Society and getting the stuff to their pickup point. Also my thanks to Ellen Whitley for the pie she gave us sometime ago that I tucked into the freezer. It was just perfect for our belated Thanksgiving when Sharon and Guy were home from the west. Also, thanks to the folks who phoned to see how Warren was after his fall. Some of them had a hard time to keep from chuckling out loud at his description of his black eyes and some of them just couldn’t disguise the way it tickled their funny bone. (But that’s okay, Russ W., as he is quite used to being the reason for a lot of grins that I can’t hide, either!). And he did know you were quite concerned about his injuries. So, thanks again for phoning. There’s still some space open for our Rama Trip on November 1, and we’d love to have you with us. Call 705-466-5732 to book a spot.

ADDRESSING NOISE COMPLAINTS

Creemore Springs Brewery spent last Friday lifting a new condenser for their main chiller to the roof of its building. The condenser contains several specially shaped fans, which are designed to operate quietly. The modification is one among several that the brewery has been making and continues to make to reduce the amount of sound and odour that escapes from the facility. To date, the brewery has made changes to its loading and unloading procedures, changed its boiler exhaust stack and added mufflers to several exhaust fans that exist throughout the building. It is still planning to take measures to reduce the odour emitted from its main stack. Plans to extend it are still in the works, but may be replaced by another approach. All of these measures have been required by the MNR before any expansion of the facility takes place.

One day in New York City, a banker was driving his new Jaguar down the streets. He parked it and opened the door to get out. Suddenly a taxi went by and ripped the door off. The driver reported this to a nearby police officer. The officer saw the whole thing and said, “You bankers are so materialistic. You didn’t even notice that your arm was ripped off as well.” The banker stared at where his arm used to be and said ,“OH NO! My new Rolex is gone too!”

Friday, October 28, 2011

Clearview Recreation News I took a bike ride along our well-used Train Trail the other day and nearly froze a few fingers off! I guess Mother Nature is trying to tell me to trade in my bike for a pair of skates! Perfect timing with Jacqueline SOCZKA skating season almost in full swing. By the first week of November, both arenas will have their full schedule running, including Public Skating, Adult Skating and Parent & Tot Skating. I can’t wait, though I was hoping the weatherman’s prediction of an unseasonably warm fall would come true. I suppose I can’t have my cake and eat it too. Oh well, at least I can start to enjoy the many wonderful things the cooler weather has to offer, like Christmas Bazaars and bake sales. If I plan my schedule just right I should be able to get most of my Christmas shopping done in one “Bazaar” weekend (November 5) with Christmas Bazaars at the Legions in Creemore and New Lowell. Doors open at 9am at both locations. I think I will go to New Lowell first, then to Creemore as the latter is open one hour later. There are also grab bags for the first 50 people in New Lowell. I just hope I don’t miss out on the yummy baked goodies in Creemore. November is also when we join our fellow Legionnaires to remember the sacrifice they and the many other men and women have made for our freedom. As in previous years, services are being held in Creemore, Stayner and New Lowell. For times, check out our Events Calendar at www. clearview.ca. While online, browse through the other programs and events happening across the Township like Badminton in New Lowell on Wednesday nights or Yoga down the road at the Recreation News

Brentwood Hall on Thursday nights. Imagine the fun you would have if you actually planned your day using just the calendar! Take Mondays, for instance. You can start your day off in Creemore at Mom & Tot Yoga, then curl up with a good book at Story Hour in Stayner. Head on over to Duntroon in the afternoon for a few strings of bowling then off to the other end of the Township for Euchre at the Sunnidale hall. Kick up your heals later in the evening with the Blue Mountain Promenaders in Duntroon or slow things down with the Taoist Tai Chi Society in Creemore. Whew, I am tired just writing it all down! To join these many wonderful activities on the web, send us your information using our newW online form. You can find it on the front page of our website, just above the Events Calendar on the right hand side. This November, Clearview is also offering another unique opportunity to get your program on the map. Scheduled for November 8 at 9:30am in Stayner or November 9 at 7pm in Nottawa, the Township will be hosting two information sessions designed specifically to share resources and find creative ways to help artists and cultural providers grow programming within the municipality. If you have a program or event you would like to get off the ground or perhaps a program you want to expand, you won’t want to miss this opportunity! As a special bonus, those in attendance will be given a chance to be the first to register for the upcoming 2012 Health and Leisure Showcase, another great way to connect with residents. Information on how to get in the upcoming 2012 Spring-Summer Community Culture and Recreation Guide will also be available. Look for “Get on the Map” on our Events Calendar for more details. Deadline to register is October 28. Contact Jacqueline Soczka, Community Culture and Recreation Programmer, Clearview Township, at 705-428-6230 ext. 249 or jsoczka@clearview.ca.

Nicola Ross can help you with grant applications Calling all Creemore and area community organizations: The Purple Hills Arts and Heritage Society has invited Nicola Ross to help you “Get That Grant.” Ross, a Caledon-based consultant, community activist and freelance writer and editor, has helped raise millions of dollars for such organizations as Theatre Orangeville, Caledon Countryside Alliance, Save the Oak Ridges Moraine and the Canadian Cross Training Association. On Friday, November 4 from 1 to 4 pm, she will conduct a three-hour workshop at Station on the Green to explain how she does it and how you can too. Grants from governments, corporations and foundations are a major source of revenue for charities, non-profit groups and community organizations. But applying for those grants can be a byzantine, frustrating and time-consuming process as non-profit groups compete for that elusive piece of an ever-shrinking pie. Ross has successfully tapped such organizations as the Ontario Trillium Foundation, the Ivey Foundation, the Royal Bank of Canada, the Greenbelt Foundation and the Ontario Media Development Corporation. Workshop participants will learn: • How to construct a compelling case for financial support • How to communicate effectively with granting sources • The differences between various granting sources • How to formulate realistic project budgets Register now, space is limited.

Clearview Soccer end-of-season roundup by Amanda Greenfield Soccer in our region concluded its season in September with much success. Clearview Soccer Club celebrated a fantastic year with 14 House League Teams and seven Competitive travelling teams. Our season began with an outdoor training clinic for all of our soccer players ages 5 to 16, and indoor training commenced for some of our competitive teams early in May. The Creemore Royal Canadian Legion and Clearview Soccer kicked off another splendid Canada Day celebration, with a three-day elimination tournament for all Local House League Teams. We welcome and are grateful for all the hard work and dedication from many who have assisted in our Canada Day Celebration and community festivities. In mid August, the Clearview Soccer Club hosted an All Star Championship Tournament featuring our seven Simcoe County Youth teams. This was our first Ontario Soccer Association Tournament and was made possible by the volunteering of parents, executive members, and great administration work by Steve DeMedeiros and Tom Stuckey. Our Simcoe County Soccer teams consist of 12-year-old Girls team, coached by Richard Holland; 12-year-old boys, coached by Amanda Greenfield; 14year-old year girls coached by Dave Kennedy, 14-year-old boys north, coached by Colin Haines; 14-year-old boys south, coached by Jack Manifold; 15-year-old girls, coached by Tom

The Clearview Soccer 12-year-old boys team, winners of this year’s All Star Championship Tournament. Stuckey; and 16-year-old girls, coached by Jamie Hoover. Congratulations to all Under 12 to 16 year olds who represented our region very well, playing up against many accomplished teams from the Metro area. Our 12-year-old boys team, captured the win in our challenging All Star Tournament. Special mentions to our volunteer coaches, assistants, managers and referees, all of whom have dedicated their time to mentor and lead our children and youth throughout this year’s season. During the soccer season many of our teams enrolled in out-of-town tournaments and embraced the joy of playing the sport and the invitation for competition and enhancing their skills. These seven teams played games

throughout the season against centres as close as Collingwood, to mid point in Innisfill, and as far as Bracebridge. Clearview Soccer wishes to recognize the dedication, effort, and commitment of all coaching staff and the exceptional efforts of all parents and guardians. It is the importance of team involvement which allows our youth to participate, learn, and appreciate the love of teamwork and the skill of soccer. Upon the finishing up of our House League season, coaches and their teams celebrated the accomplishments of their players receiving their pictures and medallions. Clearview Soccer is very proud of our children who were involved in our House League Teams and always give their all throughout the season.

Summarizing the Youth Simcoe County Teams, three of our Youth teams played in the finals in Wasaga Beach for the President Youth Cup. Representing Clearview Soccer was the 12-year-old boys, the 15-year-old girls, and the 16year-old girls. The challenge seemed to be an easy one for the 12-year-old boys and the 15-year-old girls. But the 16-year-old girls gathered their strength in the second half, and after being down by 2 goals, they were victorious. What an amazing effort from the 16-yearold girls. Congratulations to all of our PYC champions who beat out their opponents. Clearview Soccer is solely made up of volunteers. We would welcome those who share the interest in further developing our Soccer program, and who embrace the objective of providing a fun filled skilful sport with a team atmosphere for our children and our youth.
