Tips To help you save energy and stay cool

Install energyefficient LED lighting outside. It provides great lighting and won’t attract mosquitos.

On hot days, avoid using the oven – grill outside.

When it cools off at night, turn off your cooling system and open the windows. During the day, shut windows and blinds to capture the cool air.

Take advantage of the weather to hang dry your clothes on an outdoor clothesline.

Install a heavy-duty outdoor timer for your pool pump or hot tub.

SAVE $10 on outdoor clothesline umbrella stands or clothesline kits

DIGNITY, COMPASSION & ENCOURAGEMENT Lakeside HOPE House is a place of inspiration and recovery located at 10 Cork Street East.

HOPE House provides a sense of community and seeks to help people towards independence and recovery through education, instruction and mentoring.

Much like going shopping in a store, community members walk through the aisles and select what their individual family needs are. HOPE House also allocates separate points for infant care and hygiene products so there is no trade-off between food and other provisions. Acknowledging that the cost to maintain personal upkeep can sometimes mean the difference between eating and paying for rent, HOPE House offers HOPE Stylin' which encompasses both a free clothing bureau and bare-minimum cost hair salon ($2 for adults and free for children), which is operated by volunteer salon professionals. This allows HOPE House to offer clients pride in their appearance that may have been unavailable to them.

ARTIST PROFILE

JESSICA MASTERS

RIDING THE WAVE Jessica Master, a Guelph native, received a Bachelor Degree in Fine Art at the University of Guelph in 1995 and is a full time artist who teaches courses and workshops in painting and pastel. Her work has been exhibited in group and solo exhibitions and is held in private and corporate collections throughout the world. Her work will be exhibited at the Art Gallery of Guelph starting May 4 and running until August 27, 2017.

Jesscia's paintings focus on land and water imagery that are a response to her surroundings and her relationship to it. Jessica uses these subjects as metaphors of human nature to describe our basic human need to connect to our space and give meaning and interpretation to our experiences. Through her work she wants to remind the viewer of their relationship with the landscape and move the viewer’s emotions from nostalgia and peacefulness, to vulnerability and loss and even to empowerment. Jessica strives to achieve enough representation in her work to establish place, but also provide abstraction, allowing the viewer to have their own interpretation. The exhibit, titled "When We Were" seeks to revisit one of Canada's most enduring art histories and features the works of four Guelph-based artists - Scott Abbott, Janette Hayhoe, Kathleen Schmalz and Jessica Masters - who transpose historical landscape tradition and plein-air technique in contemporary practice informed by their experiences and memories of places both within and beyond the local landscape.

DELICIOUS DISH RECIPE

6-INGREDIENT

SPAGHETTI & MEATBALLS SERVING SIZE: Makes 12 NOTE: If I don’t have buttermilk, I mix the milk and lemon juice and let stand for 5 minutes, and voila... buttermilk!

Adding pesto to the turkey adds a quick and easy punch of flavour. You can use regular pesto or I use store bought no-cheese, no-nut pesto from my favourite local pasta shop. Try to get the “fresh” pesto from the refrigerated section rather than the pesto in the jar on the shelf, it is much better! This dinner comes together in well under 1-hour. Serves: 4

INGREDIENTS F O R THE T U R K E Y B A L L S

S T EP 01

• • • • •

In a large mixing bowl, mix together the breadcrumbs, pesto, salt and pepper. Add the turkey and mix well. Prepare a parchment-lined tray. Roll the mixture into 1" balls. You should have about 25-30 balls.

1 lb ground turkey* 2/3 cup bread crumbs 1/2 cup store bought pesto or homemade 1 tsp kosher salt Plenty of freshly ground pepper

• 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil F O R THE SA U CE

• 2 large cloves garlic, minced • 1 (28 ounce) can of San Marzano tomatoes, crushed with your hands • 1 tsp kosher salt • Plenty of freshly ground pepper • 1/2 tsp sugar • • • •

12 oz spaghetti noodles** 6 basil leaves, shredded, optional Grated parmesan reggiano, optional Red chili flakes, optional

* Don’t use white meat turkey. Use the regular ground turkey. ** 12oz or 340gm is 3/4 of a bag of pasta. I don’t use the whole bag because the ratio of meatballs to pasta is perfect and 12oz serves 4 perfectly!

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add olive oil. Brown the meatballs all over for about 8-10 minutes, transfer to a clean surface (I use a plate). S T EP 03

Add the garlic to the same pan, cook for 30 seconds, add the tomatoes, crush the larger pieces, add the salt, pepper and sugar and let bubble over medium high heat for 5-8 minutes. Add the turkey balls back into the pan, cover, turn heat to low and cook for another 5-10 minutes. S T EP 04

In the meantime, bring a large pot of water to boil, add 1tbsp salt, and boil the noodles according to package direction, keeping them al-dente. Reserve 1 cup of pasta water and then drain the noodles, put the pasta back into the pasta pot and add the sauce to the pasta. Add the pasta water a small amount at a time if needed to finish cooking the pasta or to thin the sauce (you may not need it).

The Canada 150th Anniversary Watch Supporting Wounded Warriors Canada This is Canada’s 150th anniversary and to celebrate the historical event; the Canada 150 watch with a striking Maple Leaf is being brought to you as a way for all Canadians to wear a piece of Canada’s heritage. In addition, we are proud to say that generous proceeds from the watch are being directed towards “Wounded Warriors Canada” in a tangible way to Honour the fallen and Help the living.

Limited Edition Canada 150 Commemorative Watch featuring:

On September 18, 2006, a suicide bomber detonated a bomb near Kandahar City, Afghanistan. The blast killed four Canadian soldiers and grievously injured others – including several innocent civilians and children. When the dust had settled, three Canadian Military Engineers lay gravely wounded.

• Watch made with Seiko movements

As they slowly healed in a military hospital in Germany, the outstanding care the dedicated medical staff provided to the wounded soldiers became clear. But it also became clear our troops needed more to assist in their recovery and rehabilitation. The idea to fill the gap quickly gained traction and Wounded Warriors Canada came into being.

• Exquisite alligator-style leather strap in black, red, blue or green

In 2006, the fund was formally incorporated with its original intent to support Canadian Forces members wounded on operations and to improve the general morale and welfare of our injured soldiers and their families. The Fund has since grown to embrace First Responders injured while serving their communities.

• Polished, Stainless Steel, engraved Crest caseback • 24k, raised gold plating on its face

• Custom embossed velveteen collector’s box

Today - as our nation’s leading, and fully independent Veteran’s charity dedicated to the mental health of the uniformed services -Wounded Warrior-Canada continues its legacy of care and compassion. Its innovative and pioneering programming aimed at battling the challenges of PTSD betters the lives of ill and injured Veterans, First Responders and their families. The Canada 150 watch is valued at approximately $220.00 but it is being offered for only $85.00 plus applicable taxes and postage. This striking watch with 24k gold plating, a Seiko Japanese movement and a leather strap which alone would retail for $40.00 is remarkable! The timepiece proudly incorporates the Maple Leaf on the watch face and Wounded Warrior Canada crest on the back of the watch. In this, our 150th anniversary as a nation, what more fitting way is there to show your pride in Canada while also supporting our wounded Veterans, First Responders and their families, than through the purchase of a Canada 150 watch. The watch can be viewed at website: www.timeisticking.ca. You can purchase the watch by telephoning 416-925-5520 emailing timeisticking@sympatico.ca or by faxing your completed order from the website to 416-925-5641.

Size approximate. Suitable for men and ladies.

Celebrate Canada’s 150th Birthday and support Wounded Warriors with this striking commemorative watch with 24k gold plating on its face. Straps are available in black, red, blue and green. The cost is a mere $8500 with a value of approximately $22000.
