Councillor says it's time to step up by Trina Berlo Doug Measures is running for mayor. The Clearview Township Ward 1 councillor has represented the Nottawa area at the council table for 12 years. “It’s time,” he told The Echo Wednesday. “I believe I have done lots of great things for the residents of the Ward 1 area, and all of Clearview, and it’s time to step up and try for the seat of mayor,” said Measures. When asked what he would like to accomplish if elected, Measures said he thinks the township is moving in the right direction. “Leadership is a key thing for the council to move forward and I think we need to create a better relationship between public participation and

council’s decisions than we have done in I’d say the last eight years at least. It’s going to be a different council term if I am elected, that’s for sure,” he said. Measures said he would change the way the meetings are run. He said a focus would be on engaging the public and if the public won’t come to the council meetings, he as mayor, and council would go to them. He would use a less formal setting to attain an understanding of what it is the community wants. “We make decisions currently and then we get second guessed by citizens and that’s not very effective. We need better communication with the public so that they know that council is working for them,” said Measures. When asked what initiatives he

would spearhead, Measures said he would continue to foster the relationship with MPP Jim Wilson, who is now Minister of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade in the new Doug Ford provincial Progressive Conservative government. “The municipality has been served very well by Jim Wilson and now we have an opportunity to make some positive impacts on our community by working with the province,” said Measures. He made mention of last week’s decision by Ford to scrap the $100 million Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund earmarked for school repairs saying, “ I want citizens to know I am going to be very vocal about keeping (See “Clearview” on page 7)

A county-wide fire ban has been implemented in Dufferin. Effective immediately, all open fires are prohibited anywhere in the county. This fire ban is being imposed by Dufferin County Fire Chiefs due to extreme dryness of all vegetation in the area. Provincial forest and wildland fire indicators are all at extreme levels. With the pending grain harvest, farmers are encouraged to exercise extreme caution with combining, as field fires can quickly overtake equipment and neighbouring crops. These fires can spread quickly to adjacent woodlands. Open air fires are defined as any fire outside of a building, including bonfires, campfires, burn barrels, outdoor fireplaces, chimineas or any other fires set in open air. If you discover an open fire, it is very important that you report first immediately to 9-1-1. Do not delay reporting while attempting to control or extinguish the fire. All burn permits in Dufferin County municipalities are now suspended and no burn permits will be issued until the ban is lifted. In Clearview Township, the fire rating is set at high, meaning burning is allowed but residents should use extreme caution as fire can spread easily due to dry conditions. Special permits for large burns are not permitted. “ We w i l l b e m o n i t o r i n g b u t Clearview will not implement a fire ban until at earliest next Friday (July 20) if at all,” said Fire Chief Colin Shewell.

The Creemore Echo • Friday, July 13, 2018 •

Millers chill out this summer by Cat Flack When the heat of summer comes along thoughts turn to cool treats such as ice cream, and now that treat is being made right here in Creemore. The farm of Johnny and Marie Miller has expanded their product line from liquid milk products to include several different flavours of ice cream. Johnny gave me a tour of the new section of the production parlour. The machine that actually makes the ice cream has been refurbished, it sat for 50 years, forgotten and left. When Johnny found the machine he sent it to the original factory, The Cherry Burrell Corporation, where it has undergone a total renovation yet retains the patina of a fine old piece of equipment. Looking at it, it’s hard to believe the amount of ice cream it can churn out in an hour, 300 litres. The operator at the receiving end needs to stay on their toes. Johnny speaks with great pride of his farmʼs rich family history, telling me that it was his grandfather’s ice cream making device. Large stainless steel kettles with mega beaters keep the cream and flavouring mixed and fed straight into the ice cream maker. I asked Johnny why he decided to go into the ice cream business and his answer was, “We have so much cream that we needed to find a use for it, it was just too good of a product we couldn’t just sell it on”. The Jersey breed, which is exclusively the type of dairy cattle the Millers’ raise, has many positive qualities. They leave the smallest carbon footprint; have a high fat content (5.4 per cent, perfect for ice cream), 4.1 grams of protein per serving and A2 quality level which means it is the easiest to digest. The high fat content yields an ice cream with a 15 per cent ratio of fat. To run a successful operation requires a hard working team of staff members, there are 12 employees that run milk

Johnny and Marie Miller production on Tuesdays and make ice cream on Thursdays. Johnny and Marie along with Marie’s son Shawn have come up with some very witty names for the frozen treats. All of the names have to do with the Creemore area, local inspiration as it were. To watch the Millers talking about the farm you can tell that it is Ying and Yang collusion, they balance each other out with great results. One of the greatest challenges in the development of the new product was the packaging. Shane Durnford designed the container, which is available in two sizes. The quart size, which fits in the home freezer easily, and the large 946 ml size, for scooping out at a retail store. Once they had the machine there were still many more components needed for the plan. A huge walk-in flash freezer was needed to keep the ice cream at an optimal temperature, the new truck that was also able to keep the ice cream frozen till it was delivered to the stores. The Millers

Police warn of paving scam

have worked hard to get their products out on the market, they themselves have canvassed many a grocery store and retail outlets and to date they have 110 locations that sell their milk products. Not only are they unveiling their ice cream at the upcoming Dairy Day, but also have introduced strawberry milk and coffee milk. I have had the pleasure of sampling both and they were a treat for the taste buds. The coffee milk is a favourite, better than the bottled stuff from the company that uses an astrological name and a word that rhymes with luck, and far better on the price point, and supports a local producer, a win for both parties involved. If you get to the Millerʼs Dairy Day you will find a couple of old pros working the ice cream area, both are idols of Johnny’s, his two uncles that both worked at the ice cream production back when they were teenagers, John Walker and Jack Clements, they are giddy with excitement with the prospect of returning to a favourite job from their youth, both men are in their seventies. They will be happy to regale you with adventures of the ice cream production from many a year ago. For now they are producing a small number of flavours, but hope to have as many as 50 in the times ahead, they won’t all be available at the same time but will rotate as the seasons change. You might think that making the product is a simple act of dumping flavourings into the vat of 35 per cent cream, but not so. Johnny and Marie have been cooking and cooling over time in the kitchen working out the best recipe with only the best, and most importantly, consistent results. So, be sure to try all the new products, you’ll be glad you did, and know that there is a lot of love and hard work that has brought them all to you.

A paving company identified as Q-Line Paving has been connected to numerous complaints about a scam in the Dufferin area. Q-Line Paving is offering low cost paving as they have a surplus of asphalt from roadwork, said police. They are giving estimates and then completing the jobs without paperwork or providing written quotes. Q-Line then paves more than the agreed area and charges substantially more than the quote. While the work was done properly, one homeownerʼs agreed upon price was $10,500 but they were later charged $16,000 after the job was done. Police remind citizens to thoroughly read all written contracts before signing them; check references; do some research; inspect all work prior to making payment; always be careful about providing confidential personal information especially banking and credit card details unless you are certain that the company is legitimate. Legitimate business people will be happy to provide information on their services, said police.

Suspicious behaviour

Residents are asking people to keep an eye out for a suspicious vehicle in Horning’s Mills. A resident of the Village reported that a yellow Dodge Dakota pick up truck, the driver of which has been identified as a suspect in several Orangeville thefts, was seen the morning of July 5 driving slowly down Mill Lane. When confronted by the resident, he said he was doing well drilling on Mill Lane. The resident confirmed this to be false, as the company he works for is currently not drilling since the drill truck is down for repairs. This encounter has been reported to the OPP. Please be vigilant, look out for your neighbours who may be on holiday, and report any suspicious activity to the OPP Command Centre at 888-310-1122.

The Way We Were

Candidates wanted The deadline to file for municipal election is July 27. That’s only two weeks away, folks. Only two weeks left to gather 25 signatures and declare that you are willing to represent your fellow residents in our democratic system. It is a thankless job but somebody’s got to do it. Reading reports, long meetings, phone calls from angry residents and low pay… Who wouldn’t want to sign up for that? The crumby job description may not be the only reason people aren’t jumping at the chance to sit on council. Anyone who cares about politics has been watching the provincial race – and some are happy with the results but others are downright despondent (even the Conservatives are bemoaning last week’s announcement to cut school funding) – and everyone else is too busy planning trips to the beach to feel the allure of municipal politics. Perhaps the new municipal election rules aren’t helping. The nomination period is shorter and there is the new requirement to collect signatures. Maybe people think the current council is doing an excellent job and, well, let’s just leave it in their capable hands. Or maybe it’s the opposite and people don’t want any part of it. Or is it that people are not willing to give of their free time? – It does seem to be a troubling trend in all sectors. It’s most likely a combination of all of the above that stops people from participating in municipal politics, which is a shame, because the decisions made at the council table really do impact our daily lives and our quality of life, as much or more than decisions made at Queen’s Park and on Parliament Hill. That’s why it’s kinda scary, but not totally surprising, that there hasn’t been much interest shown locally. Candidates aren’t clambering for seats by any means. In Clearview, two wards are without candidates altogether and the other candidates are unopposed (until this week when Ward 1 councillor Doug Measures announced he is running for mayor). In Mulmur, there are only three people going for three seats but there is a two-way race for both mayor and deputy mayor. Other municipalities are having the same problem and even big cities aren’t seeing a lot of interested candidates. There is still time. People have two weeks to get their paperwork in order and file for council. The deadline is at 2 p.m. on July 27. Residents of Clearview Ward 1 and 2 need someone and it would be nice for the rest of the wards to have options. The all-candidates meetings are going to be pretty boring if they are but a platform for incumbents to defend their actions, unchallenged. Hopefully there are people out there who are at least considering joining the race. To them we say, take your marks. The election is a chance to shake things up, raise the issues and set a path for the term ahead.

Farming, a business of difficult choices Editor: I’d like to offer a brief reply to Meg Mercer’s rather intemperate comments about dealing with the threat to livestock posed by coyotes.  It was not so long ago that humanity was universally expected to perish because its ability to reproduce would one day outpace the earth’s ability to feed us, a catastrophe the United Nations said in 2002 we had permanently forestalled. This miracle was accomplished not by “culling humans”, but by modern agriculture. Farming, as far as I can tell, is a business of difficult choices made for the common good against impossible odds, making that accomplishment even

more astonishing. It seems to me, therefore, that the people who do this work deserve considerably more benefit of the doubt than Ms. Mercer gave them in her letter, and certainly better than the rather mean-spirited rhetoric she employed to do it. If she needs a worthy target for her rage, I have several suggestions. None of them is a farmer trying to make a living, whose work we probably don’t understand well enough to judge, and upon whom we completely depend. Bruce Philp,  Creemore.

by Dr. Maggie Pattillo, ND July brings our village as close as we ever get to our friendly sun and that means two things: summer heat and summer sun. The sun’s energy travels a whopping 150 million kilometres to grow our food, power our homes and create our weather, but it doesn’t just bring us rainbows and rhubarb. The sun’s rays pack a powerful UV punch that lands on your skin every time you step outside unprotected. The fact is that skin cancer is the most common type of cancer. The good news is that 90 per cent of

cases are caused by UV rays from the sun, so skin cancer is also very preventable. But how much sun is okay? And what steps should you be taking to protect your skin from the harmful UV rays that are destined to hit you while you’re working in the field, enjoying an afternoon on the golf course, or strolling through the Saturday market?  The key is to create a barrier between the sun and your skin and the easiest, least expensive option is clothing. It’s already in your closet and provides a longer lasting shield than sunscreen.  (See “Sunscreen” on page 5)

Sunscreen key to avoiding cancer (Continued from page 4) But wait... Most skin cancers develop on the face and neck, so your barrier plan will fall short unless you remember to wear a hat. Wearing a wide brimmed hat is your best choice to protect this area, but because UV light will also reflect off of many surfaces, it’s still important to apply a layer of sunscreen to your face and neck before you go outside.   Most people understand these rules, but do we all live by them? I often see parents and older adults diligently applying sunscreen to every inch of a child but forgetting to protect their own skin. It is true that a blistering sunburn can increase a child’s risk of developing melanoma later in life (so keep covering up those kids!), but less than 25 per cent of sun damage happens before the age of 18 and each passing decade increases damage done to the skin by 10 per cent. It is never too late to take action and protect your skin. Which brings us to sunscreen... The sunscreen aisle offers an overwhelming variety of choice, but when we break it down it’s simple. There are really only three things you need to look for: SPF, broad spectrum and active ingredients.  1. Understanding SPF tells you the level of protection that the sunscreen will offer from UV rays. SPF 15 sunscreen blocks 93 per cent of UVB rays, SPF 30 blocks 97 per cent, and SPF 50 blocks 98 per cent. The Canadian Cancer Society recommends a minimum of SPF 30. 

What many people don’t know is that a stronger SPF doesn’t mean a longer lasting sunscreen. No matter the level of SPF that you choose, all sunscreen needs to be re-applied two hours after application. 2. Look for the term broad spectrum. It means that the product provides both UVA and UVB protection. Until recently, most sunscreens only offered UVA protection. Science has linked UVB to skin damage, so now we must be protected against both. And that’s as simple as choosing a broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen.   3. Active ingredients fall into two main categories – chemical filters (typically absorbed into the skin) or mineral filters (sit on top of the skin). The chemical-based sunscreens contain ingredients like retinyl palmitate, oxybenzone, and octinoxate.  Unfortunately, studies have linked these chemicals to hormone disrupting and cancer-causing activity on a cellular level, so I typically steer people away from these types of sunscreens. To be on the safe side, consider choosing a mineral filter sunscreen that contains ingredients like zinc oxide or titanium dioxide.   As with all health science, we are still learning new things. You may be surprised to hear that when it comes to protecting our skin, what we put inside our bodies matters too. Research is showing that antioxidants are playing an important role in protecting the skin – both before sun exposure and after. 


Stayner Art Fest

While it’s too early to recommend an antioxidant supplement instead of your sunscreen, it’s never too early to increase your consumption of antioxidant containing foods. A recent study demonstrated that dark chocolate consumption reduced skin redness after UV exposure.   However you are spending your summer, remember that it’s never too late to protect your skin and reduce your risk of skin cancer.

It needs to be supported and… as our community grows we are going to need that high school to grow along with it.” Measures said he also supports the expansion of the Clearview transit system to the rest of the township. “While it has had some moderate growth, I believe it is time for the bus to operate across the entire township,” he said. He wouldn’t commit to saying money should be spent to expand the service but would look for solutions to make it work, and would consider it a good investment in the community as a whole. In terms of the revitalization of downtown Stayner, Measures is supportive of the plan but says Highway 26 traffic needs to be addressed, something to help the downtown business community. Measures said he has been considering a move for the past year and has been thinking about it seriously since March but he wanted to put his name in before the July 27 filing deadline to give others a chance to get their papers filed for Ward 1 councillor. “It’s been my honour to serve as the ward 1 councillor, I hope that by putting my name forward at this time it gives citizens an opportunity to look for a new candidate for Ward 1,” said Measures. “I just hope that people understand that I am putting my name


forward because it is time for me to do this. I am in the right frame of mind, in the right time of my life to do this and I come forward with the integrity and the honesty and the experience of my work that I have done as a community member and a cheerleader for our community… and I am hopeful that people will support me.” Measures is recently retired from a 34-year career at Rogers Television and has lived in Nottawa for 41 years.

Election round-up Clearview Township Doug Measures is challenging Christopher Vanderkruys for the mayor’s seat. Barry Burton is so far unopposed as deputy mayor. No candidates have filed for Ward 1 and 2. John Broderick is unopposed for Ward 3. Incumbents Robert Walker, Thom Paterson, Connie Leishman and Deborah Bronée are unopposed in Wards 4, 5, 6 and 7 respectively.
