Foodland bank machine opens
A TD bank machine is being installed at Creemore Foodland. TD Bank said the bank machine at the shuttered bank will be removed on May 13. Until that time, both machines will be operational. The new bank machine is “full service” but because it is located inside the store (close to the main entrance) it will be accessible during regular business hours only. Foodland is open daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily with the exception of Sunday when the store is open from 8 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Crews vacuum a hole for a new utility pole at the corner of Mill and Elizabeth streets Wednesday after a food delivery truck, making its regular rounds in Creemore that morning, snagged overhead wires, breaking the pole. Epcor had a new pole delivered from Collingwood and power was cut for a time in the afternoon.
New 100 Mile store owners come from afar
by Trina Berlo The only things not from 100 miles of the Creemore 100 Mile Store are the new owners. The store has sold to Linda de Winter and Christian KlocklGreimel, who live in Switzerland. They were in Creemore April 5 to close the deal before heading back home. They will be engaging with their newly acquired business from afar until they are able to relocate to the area. Store manager Neil Connolly will be staying on to take care of the business. De Winter is Canadian, and regularly returns home to visit her parents in Midland. On one trip, while on the hunt for an investment opportunity, (See “100 Mile” on page 3)

Gateway Casinos & Entertainment announced April 4 that it proposes to build a new casino on a 7.5-acre parcel of land adjacent to the Mosley St. roundabout in the west end of Wasaga Beach. The new casino will have slots and table games, pending necessary government approvals and completion of the land transaction. Construction is expected to begin this spring, once provincial and municipal approvals are obtained. In the coming weeks, Gateway will announce more details on the size and scope of the development including new employment opportunities, food and beverage offerings and the investment in the local economy for the new build. “We are very pleased to announce that we expect to soon be able to move forward with our plans to build an exciting new casino and entertainment destination in the Town of Wasaga Beach. We look forward to receiving all the necessary provincial and municipal approvals and concluding the land transaction so we can start construction as quickly as possible,” said Keith Andrews, Senior Vice President and Managing Director for Gateway Casinos Ontario. Clearview Township opted out as a willing host early in the process of choosing a location for the casino.

On Palm Sunday, April 14, the Passion Play will be performed by the children of the congregations in silhouette (at 9:45 a.m. in New Lowell and 11 a.m. in Creemore). There will be a joint service on Good Friday, April 19, at 11 a.m. in New Lowell. On Easter Sunday, there will be a Sunrise Service at the Eagle Chapel at 7 a.m., followed by an Easter breakfast in Creemore at 8 a.m. Sunday services will be at 9:45 a.m. in New Lowell and at 11 a.m. in Creemore.

They had heard about Creemore because of Miller’s Dairy milk but surprisingly, they had not heard of the beer. Klockl-Greimel said as soon as they turned onto the main street he could see in de Winter’s eyes he had lost her. Once here, they saw a community they wanted to be a part of. De Winter said they had been thinking of investing in a café or something but when they saw that the store was for sale, their plans changed. As for its founders, Jackie Durnford and Sandra Lackie, they plan to sit around, drink some wine and work on their screenplay (joking, not joking). They will be sticking around to assist with the transition, for which the new owners say they are
grateful. “We don’t plan any changes,” said Klockl-Greimel, except for some website enhancements. “We like the concept as it is. The idea is just great.” He and de Winter say the 100-mile concept represents everything they find frustrating about traditional grocery stores. “The weird part is that products are cheaper even though they come from far away and it makes no sense,” said de Winter. “It’s important to support the local community and it adds to its charm.” Creemore 100 Mile Store carries a variety of goods – including produce, meat, dry goods and prepared foods – sourced from small to medium sized area growers and producers.

“The nice thing is that you have a direct line to the farmer to get information about a product,” said Lackie. Although the new owners will be working from afar they do plan to visit often and relocate to the village at some point in the future. At home in Switzerland they both work in intralogistics.

THE WAY WE WERE
Antics on the green AGRITALES
Golf; stands for Gentlemen Only Ladies Forbidden, well we know how long that rule lasted. I am not a golfer; in fact I have only been golfing twice in my entire life. The first time was about a hundred Cat FLACK years ago on the course at Base Borden. I was golfing with a golf maniac; let’s just say that I had to go through therapy to get over the trauma of that episode. The second time was at Highlands golf course about twenty odd years ago. I was invited to give it a whirl with my friends (I will only use initials to protect the innocence of all involved) S., E., T. and of course the CEO. It was a lovely day and as was the custom twenty odd years ago, a little liquid refreshment was the rigor of the day. First mistake. We proceeded to rent a golf cart as none of us seemed to be in the walking-for-miles mood. Second mistake. Off we went, all piled into the cart only to be accosted by the golf course security to be told that golf carts were meant for only two passengers not five. We obliged the golf patrol officer by asking E., T. and the CEO to remove themselves from the cart, they could walk, and S. and I would take over the driving. Somehow S. managed to fall out of the cart, can’t quite remember how that happened... Blame it on the liquid refreshment. We managed to get our balls close enough to the hole with the flag in it that it necessitated someone to go and hold the pole with the flag on it out of the hole, in case by some miracle someone got a hole in one (insert riotous laughter here). I volunteered as I had been the lead tee off person and had not located my ball yet. I stood a respectable distance from the hole holding the flag and watched as E. fired up, hit the ball with tremendous force and followed the arc of the little white dimpled sphere when Kaboom, nailed me right in the leg. I know all too well what the phrase “deer in the highlights, frozen with fear” means. I fell to the ground, not writhing in pain, but rolling with laughter. Third mistake. Let’s just say that the leg being hit with a fast moving ball was somehow attached to the nerve leading to my bladder, and I had to go home and change my pants. I can write about it now because I am old, but I was mortified at the time. S. knew what had happened and lent me her sweater to tie around my waist. The game was over for me. I think I had made it as far as the first hole. Golf does not beckon me to try again. I have found that a robust game of Cricket is so much more entertaining and safer; Lawn Bolles is up there too. Whatever your spring game is, get out and enjoy it.

Class sizes have no effect in student learning Editor: Hey, Yael coming at you from the classroom. This might be my feeble Ontario education talking, but I am utterly dismayed that someone would use fear mongering instead of calm deliberation to try and make her point. Repeatedly Ms. Jackson tells us, “I’m scared.” Really? (Re: April 5 Letter to the Editor.) Can someone please tell me where the notion of classroom sizes being pushed up to 42 students came from? In articles from CTV News, CBC, and The Globe and Mail, the consensus is that the classes increase from 22 to 28 students. I have on my own realized I must source my information. Here’s a fact, Dr. Nina Bascia from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, led a study on the effect of class sizes on students. She proved there was no difference in the learning capabilities of children from varied class sizes. CBC issued an article, which interviewed former teacher Paul Bennett, who agreed class sizes have no effect in student learning, saying “But the massive reductions in class size from 2003 to the present haven’t really produced the gains in student achievement that most had hoped.” Bennett cited a 2012 report by former TD Bank chief economist Don Drummond, which pulled data from several educational research studies measuring the positive and negative impact of class size. It found that 72 per cent of results showed that class size wasn’t a significant factor, writing, “small class sizes are not a key determinant of educational outcomes.” Holy mackerel, Ms. Jackson is scared of online teachers not being qualified, she is scared of students not being disciplined enough to learn online and scared about students not being able to afford computers and on and on. What is she suggesting here, a system with absolutely no oversight? The truth of the matter is there will arise special needs in every system and accommodations made for them. A 2018 Globe and Mail article shows that Grade 8

math scores have improved over a six-year period except for Ontario. This same article also states decreasing literacy skills in Ontario. Something has to change. Going back to basics sounds like a reasonable option. All my math teachers insist everyone should pay for a tutor since math is “so hard.” Guess what, not everyone can afford tutors. Hey, I don’t know, but maybe teachers can do their jobs and adequately teach their students without always saying, “Get a tutor.” I mean, it’s your job! For 15 years, a Liberal Ontario government has caved to the funding and salary demands of the teachers’ union in exchange for that union buying expensive ads aligning with that government’s agenda. Doesn’t this recent provincial election represent the grade that taxpayers have given teachers for the way their money has been spent? And what did their lobbying activity lead to? From first hand experience I can say the classroom is not an open forum for discussion. There are plenty of political discussions in class but they are slanted. Real opinion or thought diversity is not allowed. If a teacher says something, kids are not equipped or taught to question it. “All in all, you’re just another brick in the wall.” Ontario teachers have successfully concealed from my generation the need to pursue truth. It amounts to indoctrination of children into their ideology. Case in point, letting children walk out of class as long as they protest for the teacher’s agenda. It was sickening to see children used as tools for propagandizing. I have not met anybody around this area that doesn’t think that teachers are more than adequately compensated for the job they do. Surely teachers have an inkling of one significant reason why the parents of the children they currently teach cede to their every demand. Don’t you think when you hold the academic destiny of us children in your hands it is exploitative to tell our parents to come out and protest for you? “Hey, teacher! Leave them kids alone.” Yael Inglis, Creemore.

The new location of the church on Wellington Street West makes it more convenient for the public and with improvements now mark and long step forward on which we congratulate both the pastor and the congregation.” The serious business of preaching from the pulpit often resulted in reports in the local newspaper. For example, Rev. G. Brown gave a lecture on what was accomplished in India where he had been for seven or eight years. Another time the congregation brought in Rev. B. W. Merrill, General Superintendant of Sunday School work. Pastor Emmons took the prize for outspoken remarks from behind the pulpit. Almost 100 years ahead of his time the congregations received “Hail Columbia” for using tobacco products. A few months later Pastor Emmons said he was no billboard and refused to announce from the pulpit any entertainment of a secular nature for which admission was charged. One wonders what brought on his rant concerning women’s place in the world: the drive for women’s enfranchisement, perhaps. The paper reported, “If women who are thinking of becoming queens in the social and political life had heard Pastor Emmons on Sunday afternoon we think their minds would be changed considerably.”

A great deal of activity marked the Baptists of the early twentieth century. A Young People’s Union was formed. Entertainments were held. The little ones from the Mission Band were reported as excelling at recitations, dialogues and music. A garden party was held on the Baptist lawns one July. A large quantity of delicious edibles was enjoyed by the participants. The nearby tennis court was very popular as was the music provided by Lochie Coleman with his pipes and accompanying band. On another occasion an evangelistic band of five young men from McMaster University attracted such a crowd that many were not able to get in. The addressed were “bright, brief and interesting and the music of the quartette and soloists were inspiring.” On the night before He died, Jesus was in the Garden of Gethsemane praying. Jesus expressed disappointment in His disciples, saying, “Could you not watch with me one hour?” On Thursday, April 18, St. Andrew’s Maple Cross Presbyterian Church, Creemore will be open between 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. for Silent Vigil. Pick the time of your choice and give to Jesus one hour.
