If a tree falls in the forest does anybody hear? The answer is likely yes, if

you live near or regularly visit what has been called Etobicoke’s “crown jewel” Centennial Park. The mostly ash tree woodlot near the park’s ski chalet is the

subject of forest management by the city’s urban forestry department. Translation – city officials have hired a contractor to remove 92 fairly large, and

approximately 350 moderatesized ash trees marked with blue paint, decimated and dead or drying from the emerald ash borer. >>>ASH, page 2

Ash tree removal to take place this month: city >>>from page 1 “That’s a fairly significant impact,” Jennifer Gibb, one of two natural resource specialists with the city’s urban forestry department, said in an interview. “This little bug has definitely impacted our trees more than the Asian Long-Horned Beetle,” which both city and federal officials reported last year had been eradicated. Etobicoke’s borer-infested ash trees are among Toronto’s 860,000

ash trees affected by the borer, an Asian beetle made its way to Toronto from Detroit, Mich. in 2002, leaving dead and dying ash trees behind. The city detected the first infestation in 2007, then in further surveys in 2008-09. A city-hired contractor will remove the trees in a manner similar to logging. The dense forest won’t allow for conventional removal, which is climbing the trees and cutting them

down branch-by-branch. Instead, a machine called a skidder will fell the trees, the best option Gibb said, to deal with the large volume of trees in a way that will cause the least damage to the woodlot. The felled ash wood will be harvested into logs to be sold, which helps to lower the cost, she said. Weather permitting, the removal could begin next week. If not, it will likely happen in late February, Gibb reported.

Another contractor has already removed the underbrush of buckthorn and honeysuckle. The city’s tree removal emerald ash borer management strategy has been contained in Etobicoke to the woodlot and manicured, welltraveled areas in Centennial Park, as well as Bloordale Park. “We’re trying to do the removal in a natural way leaving some of the brush behind to decompose and undertaking a fairly aggressive

replanting program to reintroduce a high diversity of tree species,” Gibb said. Studies indicate most of Toronto’s ash trees will die by 2017. However, city forestry officials have made some headway in saving the ash by injecting trees with TreeAzin, a biological insecticide that disrupts the beetle’s life cycle.

New award, scholarship honours Jean Augustine

darting and weaving

LAMP, Humber College recognize Augustine’s legacy with Feb. 22 gala CYNTHIA REASON creason@insidetoronto.com Etobicoke residents are invited to celebrate Black History Month on Feb. 22 at the inaugural Jean Augustine Legacy Award Dinner – a gala launch for a newly established award and scholarship honouring the first African-Canadian woman elected to Parliament. Augustine, who ser ved as Etobicoke-Lakeshore MP from 1993 to 2005, said she was “tremendously honoured” at being recognized by LAMP Community Health Centre as the namesake for its Jean Augustine Legacy Award, and by Humber College for its separate scholarship of the same name. “To me, it’s a reminder about what Canada is all about. I came here as a young woman from Grenada with just a small suitcase and $25, and started doing domestic work in the home of a Canadian family. And now, here I am 50-something years later with an award named after me,” she laughed. “Mine is a Canadian story. You work hard, you roll your sleeves up, you find people who are doing things in the community, and you move along with them.” Augustine did more than just “move along” with the crowd, though – by most accounts, she led them. Hailed by many as a trailblazer, Augustine is responsible for bringing Black History Month to Canada as an MP back in 1995, has served as president of the Canadian Congress of Black Women, chair of the Metro Toronto Housing Authority, and is currently Ontario’s Fairness Commissioner. She has sat on the boards of the National Black Coalition of Canada, York University, the Hospital for Sick Children, the Donwood Institute, and Harbourfront, and also received the Order of Canada in 2009 in recognition of her dedication to serving youth, single mothers and newcomers. With the Jean Augustine Legacy Award and Scholarship, representa-

tives from both LAMP and Humber said they hope to honour Augustine’s accomplishments, while at the same time inspiring others to walk in her esteemed footsteps. “Jean’s achievements and contributions reflect a life of passion and conviction, dedication and service that serve as an inspiration to us all,” said LAMP’s community relations officer Jasmin Dooh, noting that it was LAMP’s community relations committee who came up with the idea of creating an award in Augustine’s honour. “With this award, we’re looking for individuals who, like Jean, have overcome barriers to live the values of social justice, who champion positive social change, who have integrity and compassion, and who really want to make a difference.” Nominiate someone Nominees for LAMP’s Jean Augustine Legacy Award must either live, work or volunteer in the Etobicoke-Lakeshore area. The winner will be recognized at LAMP’s annual Awards of Merit on June 3. Meanwhile, with Humber’s $1,500-Jean Augustine Legacy Scholarship – the first of which was handed out this past fall –

the college is hoping to merge its shared mission with Augustine to help develop “broadly educated, highly skilled and adaptable citizens who significantly contribute to the educational, economic, and social development of their communities,” said Wanda Buote, principal of Humber’s Lakeshore Campus. “(Jean) recognizes that supporting people in our communities that may not traditionally access education and work is an important part to achieving this mission,” she said. “Humber is honoured to support a scholarship in Jean’s name, as it will aid others to continue on her legacy.” The first recipient of the scholarship, Buote added, is Etobicoke School of the Arts alum Sarah Gribeauval, who is currently studying towards her Bachelor of Music at Humber. Both the LAMP award and Humber scholarship will be officially launched on Saturday, Feb. 22 at the Jean Augustine Legacy Award Dinner at Humber College’s Lakeshore Commons, 3199 Lake Shore Blvd. W.

T

he Olympic Winter Games kick off Friday and we’ve got 221 athletes vying for gold in Sochi, Russia – our largest team to ever represent Canada at the winter event. Ontario is well represented with 64 athletes, the most of any province. Toronto has eight Olympians that we’re particularly keeping an eye on: Patrick Chan (figure skating), Dylan Moscovitch (figure skating), P.K. Subban (hockey), Natalie Spooner (hockey), Michael Lambert (snowboarding), Katie Tsuyuki (snowboarding), Lenny Valjas (cross country skiing) and Phil Brown (alpine skiing). If you weren’t already planning on it, there are a few good reasons to get on the Winter Games bandwagon for the next two and a half weeks. our view The Olympics truly are a unifying event. No matter your culOlympics tural background, your political views or whether you actually inspirational know the difference between for children luge and skeleton, there’s nothing like a podium win to ignite the national pride in all of us. The Games strengthen our communities at home. While our athletes are a world away, we can invite our neighbours, friends and family together to cheer them on. It’s a great excuse to reach out, or strike up a conversation with a stranger, to talk about the standings and how Canada’s team is faring. It serves as a great inspiration for our children. At a time when childhood obesity rates are critically high, introducing kids to the exciting world of the Winter Games is the perfect way to get them more active. It’s an especially welcome inspiration at this time, to be reminded that winter in Canada can be enjoyable if we embrace it and play in it. And children can always use more positive role models. Why not introduce them to our roster of Olympians and Paralympians who serve as examples of determination, focus, great teamwork and even how to get back up after a failure. The Olympic Winter Games start with Friday’s opening ceremonies and continue until Feb. 23, with the Paralympic Games beginning March 7. Tune in, host a Winter Game-watching party, get the kids involved by having them cheer for their favourite athlete and then do something really Canadian – go play in the snow.

Scarborough subway still far from a certainty

O

n balance and considering their limitations, Toronto council put together a proper so-so budget for 2014. It’s too bad that in the midst of all that mediocrity, the most vital debate in the 2014 budget deliberations didn’t quite happen. That’s not to say that there wasn’t a lot of talk about the wisdom of slathering a 0.5 per cent property tax premium to pay for a portion of a multi-billion dollar subway going into Scarborough, because there was. St. Paul’s Councillor Josh Matlow provoked a couple of high-octane discussions about the property tax hike. On the first day of the budget deliberations, he tried to have the property tax hike itself voted on separately. He was thwarted then by Speaker Frances Nunziata and council’s procedural rules, and then council supported her ruling on a razor-thin

david nickle the city margin. And once that vote happened – it was done. When Matlow, an admitted naysayer on the Scarborough subway, moved a motion to put off spending any of the proceeds of that tax until 2015, Nunziata ruled that out of order on the legal advice that such a decision might open up the city to a legal challenge. To whit: you can’t say you’re levying a tax for a specific purpose then not spend it there. And so council, in their last budget debate before the election, went ahead and charged taxpayers for work on a subway that still may never be built. Now, it’s true that council has supported the subway to replace the Scarborough RT, and when it voted to do so last year, Metrolinx agreed to build

A smart opponent would leave that base to (Rob) Ford, and go after a portion of the streetcar-loving majority.

it. But there are still impediments. For one thing, there are elections coming up: likely a provincial election, and a municipal election Oct. 27. And while there is a large contingent of voters in Scarborough who believe that a shorter subway line is a better fit than a longer light rail line, there’s every indication they’re not a majority. A poll released Monday, Feb. 3 by Leger shows that 61 per cent of Toronto voters would prefer a light rail line and 56 per cent of Scarborough voters would like light rail over a subway. In Toronto, at least one

serious mayoralty candidate, David Soknacki, has indicated that if elected in October will steer the course back to light rail. Others may or may not follow suit, depending on how public opinion goes across the city over the coming months. Mayor Rob Ford will almost certainly continue to support subways, on the likely correct assumption that the minority of subway supporters will intersect almost perfectly with his own base. A smart opponent would leave that base to Ford, and go after a portion of the streetcarloving majority. As to the province? Who knows what a fresh legislature will bring to the question of subways in Toronto. All in all, it seems an unwarranted risk, betting a 0.5 per cent 2014 property tax hike on the vagaries of election-year politicking.

his lovely winter scene is one of the oldest photographs of Etobicoke known to exist, taken circa. 1861. Behind the fence stand the owners of this Kipling Avenue farm, Benjamin and Hannah (Mattice) Johnston, with three of their five children on the left. The Johnstons hold a special place in the history of the Islington area as they were its first permanent settlers – and the family stayed for 177 years. Benjamin was the youngest of the nine children of George and Mary Johnston, Late Loyalists who immigrated to Upper Canada from Pennsylvania in 1798. When they first arrived in the Islington area around 1808, they leased a Clergy Reserve property and built a log cabin about where Dundas Street and Royalavon Crescent intersect today. When the War of 1812 started, three of their sons - Thomas, Henry and William - served in the 3rd York Militia, and all three survived the war unscathed. However, changes made to Dundas

denise harris history corner Street during the war moved its route north from where Bloor Street is today to right outside the front door of their cabin. The family found the noise and dust caused by the constant movement of soldiers, horses and supply wagons unbearable. So in 1815, George bought a 100-acre lot on the west side of Kipling Avenue, between Bloor Street and Burnhamthorpe Road. By 1816, he had built the house you see in this photo near the north end of the lot, far from Dundas Street. Constructed in the Regency cottage style popular at that time, the family named it “Pine Lodge”. When George died in 1824, his eldest son Thomas inherited the property, but in 1832 Thomas sold it to his youngest brother, Benjamin. Eventually six generations of Johnstons would live on and farm this property, with the last piece sold out of the

family in 1985. Family members played key roles in the development of Islington Village. They were one of the founding families of Islington Methodist (now United) Church, and Benjamin’s son James was the church’s choir director for 50 years. Five generations of Johnstons served as trustees for Islington’s School over a span of 108 years. Sometime after 1861, Benjamin had the Regency cottage demolished and built a new house of red brick in a Gothic Revival style on the same footprint. This house still stands at 1078 Kipling Ave., while three other Johnston family houses also survive at 1056 and 1100 Kipling Ave. and 66 Burnhamthorpe Rd. Three of them are listed on the City’s Inventory of Heritage Properties. Mattice Avenue and Road, off Kipling Avenue, were named after Hannah Mattice Johnston’s family.

the etobicoke guardian tackles a local issue

our exclusive look

Giving every student a voice ESA’s Student Equity Group has tackled students’ mental health, violence against women, children cancer fundraising

TAMARA SHEPHARD tshephard@insidetoronto.com Weeklong seminars to promote mental health awareness made an impact, as did a white ribbon campaign to support women and their children in a local shelter. Providing an opportunity for social justice and awareness is a guiding principle of Etobicoke School of the Arts’ (ESA) Student Equity Group, said its founder, teacher Christos Vritsios. He created the group to give all students, regardless of ethnic, socio-cultural, economic or gender affiliation, a chance to speak for themselves, especially individuals and groups that feel underrepresented, misrepresented or misunderstood. “(A)nyone who has been bullied, has known someone near and dear who has been bullied, and/or who has paid attention to the growing crisis of suicide and self-harm in youth will realize that speaking for those who feel alone, the voiceless, who can’t stand up for themselves, that someone has to stand up for them. It may as well be us,” Vritsios said. T h re e y e a r s a g o, h e launched the school’s first Asian Heritage Celebration, and this November, its first Multicultural Day. In October, Vritsios and the students organized their first Mental Health Symposium, a week of seminars to create awareness, fight the stigma and encourage dialogue around mental health issues. Speakers included board social workers and psychologists. The Toronto District School Board is also making student mental health and well-being a priority. Last week, board officials launched a four-year strategy to address the overwhelming anxiety and worry Toronto students feel, revealed in a ground-breaking survey last year. The first-ever survey asked

Members of Etobicoke School of the Arts’ Student Equity Group Sienna, Ariel, Gabby, Kamini, Rebexxa and Andreana recently raised money and participated in Inside Ride, Canada’s first indoor cycling challenge by Coast to Coast Against Cancer Foundation to raise money in support and families and children with cancer.

I’m so glad I can look back on my senior year of high school and say ‘I made a difference to my community and my school.’ – Kamini Persaud

130,000 students in grades 7 to 12 questions about their mental health. It showed roughly one in three grades 7 and 8 students didn’t have an adult at their school they felt they could depend on; one-third said they had at least one; the final third said they had more than one. About three-quarters

of those students said they liked school. In high school, nearly half said they didn’t have anyone they could turn to and only 59 per cent enjoyed school. “Mental health and wellbeing belongs to everyone and is key to student success and that is why I have made this a clear priority at the TDSB,” director of education Donna Quan said in a statement. The board’s mental health plan includes: n Requiring all schools to have a mental health team. n Training and professional development for all school staff on youth mental health. n Increasing the number

of schools with mental health awareness programs about the stigma attached to mental health issues. n Increasing the number of partnerships with agencies/ charities that provide mental health programming. n Better informing parents about their children’s emotional well-being. Grade 12 ESA student Kamini Persaud, an ESA Student Equity Group student leader, said students sharing their own stories of mental health challenges is “for me, the most meaningful experience I’ve had in high school.” Students’ academic workloads are compounded by the demands of their arts

majors, with rehearsals held before and after school, on weekends, even during March Break and summer vacation, Persaud said. “I see students around me who don’t know how to deal with stress and anxiety,” said the 17-year-old. “They don’t know what depression means. Kids might say, ‘I can’t think straight. I’m smart. But sometimes I’m lost.’ The symposium created a safe space for students to ask questions about issues that affect everyone.” Persaud said the experience got students talking to one another. “Sometimes, my friends say things to me. I say, ‘that’s not OK. You shouldn’t be feel-

ing that way.’ I have tools I can use to help them.” Recently, ESA’s Student Equity Group of 12 core students with about 30 members in total, sold white ribbons at school leading up to the Dec. 6 anniversary of the Montreal massacre, before and after school and at lunch, and to parents during a school performance intermission. Students presented a nearly $750 cheque to Women’s Habitat officials, more than double last year’s donation. Last year, the Mimico-based 25-bed shelter housed 40 women and their 75 children fleeing violence. It also operates an outreach centre offering individual and group counselling, transition and support services, housing assistance, parenting support and services for young women. Most recently, students organized and participated in Inside Ride, Canada’s first indoor cycling challenge by Coast to Coast Against Cancer Foundation to raise money in support of families of children with cancer. Vritsios said the search is always on to create new school campaigns around issues of equity. “Ultimately, we look at the need for awareness campaigns and hope that through some effort on our part, people who are open will be informed about something that will help to make the world a better place,” he said. Persaud expressed gratitude for that experience. “The equity group is important because it really educates students to the view of what’s right and wrong, what they should stand for and how you should be treated as a person. I’m so glad I can look back on my senior year of high school and say ‘I made a difference to my community and my school.’”

Hockey and alpine skiing events kick off next week >>>from page 1 the Sochi 2014 opening ceremony pre-show this Friday, Feb. 7 from 10 to 11 a.m. followed by the ceremony itself from Fisht Olympic Stadium from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The ceremony will be rebroadcast from 2 to 5 p.m. Subban, 24, and Brown, 22, are both Etobicoke natives. Subban is currently the NHL’s third top-scoring defenceman. Last year, he received the James Norris Memorial Trophy as the NHL’s best defenceman. Recently, he retweeted a Tweet urging fans to Tweet him music at #MusicForPK to load up a fan-curated playlist onto his iPod. A photo of Subban wearing an electric smile as he dons the Canadiens’ jersey appears on his Twitter account, which has 316,000 followers. He is the eldest in a Su b b a n f a m i l y h o c k e y dynasty. Brother Malcolm, a goalie, and brother Jordan, a defenceman, have been drafted by the Boston Bruins and the Vancouver Canucks, respectively. Their father, Karl Subban, is a retired principal after a three-decade career teaching in 10 schools with the Toronto District School Board. The elder Subban has said doing what interested his kids is how he supported them in their athletic pursuits. “I learned with P.K., that whatever he was doing, I was doing.” By age six, P.K. was skating every day. His dad, then vice-principal at Runnymede

Collegiate with night school duties, would come home, wake up P.K. and take him skating at Nathan Phillips Square. At his retirement party last June from Claireville Junior School, the elder Subban told The Guardian he plans to pen three books – two on education, and one chronicling his sons’ meteoric rise in hockey. “(T)he theme of the book will be all about helping children to find their passion and fulfill their dreams,” he said. Winning Olympic gold in Sochi could well be part of P.K. Subban’s dream. Olympic gold could also propel Brown’s relatively short professional career as an alpine skier.

up a bronze medal in combined, Brown is seen as one of Canada’s stars of the future. Brown credits that race as his best yet. “(My best moment in ski racing) was finishing third overall in the combined event at world juniors in 2011, finishing top 15 in all four events, also at world juniors. Greatest week of skiing I have ever had,” Brown said on his website. He seems equally excited to be in Sochi. “S o m a n y # O l y m p i c tweets filling my feed from athletes already in #Sochi! The Olympic vibe is alive and I can’t wait to be part of it! #fb),” Brown tweeted Feb. 4.

Public Notice The Proposed Project TransCanada is proposing to construct and operate a new natural gas transmission pipeline which will connect new facilities proposed by Enbridge Gas Distribution to TransCanada’s existing mainline. This connection is required to meet increasing demand and reliably service homes, businesses, schools and hospitals in Ontario and Eastern Canada with a diverse, flexible supply of natural gas. The King’s North Connection project will connect the proposed new Enbridge Gas Distribution pipeline facilities with TransCanada’s existing natural gas transmission facilities. This collaborative approach will reduce the number of new natural gas pipelines required in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), benefiting consumers with a safe, reliable and economical source of natural gas while minimizing the environmental footprint and impact to nearby residents and landowners. Once initial Aboriginal, landowner and stakeholder engagement has been conducted and environmental and engineering studies have been completed, TransCanada anticipates filing an application with the regulator, the National Energy Board (NEB) in Q3 2014.

The Proposed Pipeline Route TransCanada proposes to construct a 36” diameter pipeline within approximately 13 km of a new right-of-way to interconnect new natural gas facilities proposed by Enbridge at Albion Road in Toronto with TransCanada’s existing pipeline at Major MacKenzie Drive in Vaughan. The majority of the pipeline’s proposed route is located east of Highway 50 and Huntington Road in the City of Vaughan. A small portion of the route will be located in the cities of Brampton and Toronto. The route is proposed to follow, in part, an existing hydro corridor and the proposed Highway 427 extension to maximize compatibility with existing and planned infrastructure in the area which will reduce the environmental footprint of the project. The final proposed route for this pipeline will reflect an extensive Aboriginal and stakeholder engagement process, environmental assessment and engineering and route analysis. Project Schedule: • Q4 2013 Commence Aboriginal and Stakeholder engagement • Q4 2013 Commence environmental and engineering assessment and route analysis • Q3 2014 Submit application to the NEB • Q2 2015 Pending NEB approval, start construction • Q4 2015 Construction complete and pipeline in service If you have any questions regarding this proposed project, please do not hesitate to contact the Project Team at 1.855.895.8752 or email us at kingsnorth@transcanada.com.

REXDALE REAL ESTATE

Thought I would take a moment to say hello and update you on the Rexdale Real Estate Market. 2013 will be known as the year we were discovered! For the first time that I can recall we’ve had investors/renovators move into our area in numbers and buy up properties, renovating them and re-selling the renovated home. The homes they are buying are homes that are basically in some degree in original condition: i.e. still have Oil Tanks, 60 Amps, the original Kitchen/Bathrooms from the 1950/1960’s. They upgrade them complete with granite counters, modern Kitchens, modern Bathrooms, re-sand the hardwood (or replace) floors and make the home appear as new, and then re-sell it. Spin off benefit of that is they are raising prices in the Rexdale, upgrading our standards, as well as upgrading the homes. Last year (2013) we sold a total of 883 homes of which 314 sold over $400,000. In 2012 we sold 287 properties over $400,000 and in 2011 - 143. The lowest price for a detached property was $295,000 and the highest $815,000. 76 of those 314 sold over $500,000. Compare that to 2012 when we sold 53 over $500,000. I have included the last 3 years of Average Prices for Rexdale so you can see how much prices have changed. Like 2012 the predominate theme throughout the year was very few listings and that is still the case today as it was last year as we have approximately 132 properties FOR SALE and Buyers have returned to the Market. There isn’t a week that goes by without some economic report saying that the Real Estate Market in Toronto is overvalued and is in line for a price adjustment. Time will tell..... If you’ve been thinking about selling your home this year NOW is the time to do so. There is very little competition and the demand for good properties is there. If you have any questions or would like to sell your home, give me a call. You can always reach me on my direct line (416) 743-3832.

Keep Smiling!

Tina

FraudChat gives direct line to officer advice Connect with police on Twitter for tips on avoiding fraud In the campaign against fraud, education and awareness often equals prevention. It was with that in mind that the Toronto Police Service partnered with the Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO) to operate FraudChat – a weekly Twitter chat that “encourages the exchange of information, tips and personal experiences to help prevent financial crime.” “Fraud is one of those unique crimes, in that people really don’t like to admit that they’ve been defrauded. There’s a lot of stigma. So, we wanted to create a platform where people could feel comfortable talking about fraud and being defrauded and prevention strategies – and FraudChat really fit the bill,” said Det. Sgt. Cameron Field of Toronto Police’s Financial Crimes Unit, who co-moderates FraudChat alongside

Kristen Rose, FSCO’s senior communications officer. “Initially we didn’t know how well FraudChat would be received, because there are a ton of Twitter chat programs – every night there are hundreds going on, it seems. So it was a real roll of the dice for us, but we knew there was potential there.” And so, over the last year and three months, Field and Rose have taken to Twitter every Thursday night from 9 to 10 p.m. to lead discussions on topics ranging from investment fraud, to romance scams, to health-care fraud, auto insurance fraud, social media scams, and Ponzi and pyramid schemes. To participate in the discussion or to simply read along, all one has to do is follow the hashtag #fraudchat, Rose said, adding that, since its launch in November 2012, hundreds of thousands of people have

cynthia reason the police piece caught on to FraudChat. “It’s grown quite a bit. We did some preliminary analysis and we found during the first five or six months of FraudChat’s existence, it was actually reaching, on average, about 746,000 people each week on Twitter, so we were quite impressed by that,” she said, noting that FraudChat has drawn a diverse following from the local, national, and even international community. A s Va l e n t i n e’s D a y approaches, Field said a popular and timely topic that gets brought up on FraudChat a lot is romance scams. What perpetrators of romance scams do, he explained, is “use the cover of veil” offered by dating and social networking sites to hide

behind a fictional story. “The key hallmark of a romance scam is that, within five or six messages, the subject begins professing an undying love for the victim....Another hallmark sign is, after another four or five messages, the subject asks for money – they say ‘I need money to come see you’, and so the victim wires them $3,000 to come visit them, but the subject never comes,” Field said. “That’s a typical romance scam, but we’ve seen very, very elaborate romance scams where people have been relieved of nearly $1 million.” While the topics of each FraudChat change from week to week, Rose said followers can always bank on expert advice and referrals to the best of resources. “Anyone who joins in has access to a whole com-

Valentine’s Day Guide Revive the art of letter writing CONSUMER FEATURE

Getting a handwritten letter nowadays is extraordinary, as people often do not take the time to write letters in an age when emailing, texting and tweeting have revolutionized the way people communicate with one another. However, writing notes, letters and exclamations of love can be more intimate, especially on Valentine’s Day. In France, love letters are called billet doux. The French are known to be romantics at heart, but that doesn’t mean people from all over the globe can’t put pen to paper to express their feelings. Handwritten letters are often seen as thoughtful gestures, especially when those letters are expressing intimate sentiment. Here are some guidelines: ♥ Visit a stationery store for a nice piece of stationery and envelope. If you are putting forth the effort to create a beautiful, handwritten letter, you can add to the experience by selecting a fine paper on which to write. There are many different types of paper - some may even feature flower petals or leaves embedded in the paper. ♥ Brush up on your penmanship. A letter will be rendered useless if it isn’t legible. ♥ Have a picture of the person to whom you will be addressing the letter nearby. This may provide some inspiration. ♥ Jot down ideas on a piece of scrap paper. Think about how your partner makes you feel and the qualities he or she possesses that you find appealing, and use concrete examples why you love and

care for this person. Write a rough draft and be sure to proofread it for misspellings and grammatical errors. ♥ Always write from the heart and be sincere in what you say. Try to call out specific examples that recall particularly fond memories. ♥ Write your final copy of the letter on the good paper. Make sure it is neat and legible. Be sure you date it because it is likely the note will be saved. ♥ You may want to wait a day or two before sending the letter to be sure the sentiments you expressed are truly what you want to say. If so, mail or hand deliver the note. Love letters and other handwritten notes are quickly becoming a thing of the past, as technology has largely replaced pen and paper. Yet, those who want to add a special touch to any occasion can choose to write a letter and make a lasting impression. ♥

FAQs about the Winter Olympic Games Q. I never miss the opening ceremonies. The trouble is they begin Friday at 11 a.m., EDT, when I’ll be stuck at work. The festivities last five hours. There’s no way I can spend that much time hunched over my phablet without drawing attention. Suggestions? A. I’m no doctor, but it sure sounds like you’ve got a nasty bout of the flu coming on. Oh, say, around Thursday evening? Q. Because CBC is the rights holder, Don Cherry is going to be one of the analysts in Russia for ice hockey. Does this mean Grapes is actually going to be calling hockey “ice hockey” just like everybody else? A. I wouldn’t count on it. Q. In figure skating, how long is the long program and how long is the short program? A. Uh, you mean how long is the long and how short is the short, right? Q. During the ice dancing if one of the couples

jamie wayne BUT SERIOUSLY accidentally slips into a samba during the mambo, what do the judges do? A. Honestly, I’ve never paid attention to their reaction, because whenever I see it happen, I immediately leap up on the couch and break into the lambada. Q, My son hates sports and knows nothing about any Olympic events but says he wants to see the skeleton. His eyes light up when he says it, too. He assumes he’s going to be looking at skeletons all day. We only have one TV set. How on earth am I going to watch what I want to watch – curling? A. Since he’s never seen skeleton before, tell him you’re putting it on, but flip on curling instead. Just make sure to turn it on right before the last rock of the 10th end, just as the

announcer is about say, “There are two lying in the house, one is buried, the other, lying next to it, is shot and the skip is holding the hammer coming home.” Q. Lastly Jamie, I really hate to mix politics with sports, but what are the chances we see a Cuban Olympian defect right after Sochi? A. Not good considering Cuba is not represented in Sochi and has yet to send a team to any Winter Games. However, now that you’ve brought it up, it should interest you to know that based on the grumbling I’ve been hearing around the office, if the weather doesn’t get any milder soon, I wouldn’t be surprised if a few of my co-workers end up defecting TO Cuba DURING the Games. Jamie Wayne is a lifelong columnist, who takes writing very seriously. The topics? Not so much. His column appears every Tuesday. Contact him at jamie.wayne@sympatico.ca
