WINNER OF SUMMER GAMES FOR GOLF Chloe Currie is not your typical soon to be seventeen-year-old teenager. She has had quite an amazing year. Starting last October when she joined the Canadian National Development Team. She won the Ontario Jr. Girls U19, the Ontario Juvenile Girls U17 Summer Games and the Canadian Juvenile Girls U17, quite impressive. To top it all off, Chloe was off to England to play in the Duke of York golf tournament on September 10th. This tournament hosts the best girl and boy U19 golfers from each country! Good luck Chloe!
I asked Chloe what it’s like to juggle playing a competitive sport at the National level, with school, family and her friends. “Challenging” was her response, “but I love it. My school has been super helpful and accommodating and I am able to keep up my grades with hard work.” A typical day during the summer has Chloe practicing 5 to 6 hours a day at her home course, Mississauga Golf and Country Club. Everyday Chloe works on her chipping, putting and driving skills at the luxurious Mississauga Golf Club with her 11 different coaches. Wednesdays are her “off days” where she manages her schedule. She spends many hours catching up on emails, organizing her tournament schedule, booking her travel, communicating with her coaches and catching up with her friends.
The Wednesday I had the pleasure to catch up with Chloe she had just finished a 2 ½ hour fascial massage, a sports specific massage. After our meeting she was headed to Golf Canada to pick up her outfits for the Duke of York tournament, then off to a workout. Eating properly is very important as is getting enough sleep, which Chloe tries to get at least 9 hours a night. With Chloe’s talent and amazing grades she has been actively recruited by many NCAA schools. She has made a verbal commitment to the College of Charleston. “The coach is awesome and easy to talk to,” beamed Chloe. Chloe is an impressive young lady. She is poised, articulate and enthusiastic. She works hard at both her sport and school and has a genuine love of life. She is an amazing representative for Canada. 01: Aiming for the green. 02: Ontario Juvenile Girls U17 (Summer Games). 03: Chloe driving off the tee. 04: Winning the Ontario Jr Girls U19.

A LOCAL HERO
David DiTommaso decided to go to his boat at the Port Credit Marina on Canada Day. Good thing he was there or the outcome of this story would have been very different. While he was in his cabin he heard a splash and saw a man in the water. He did not hesitate and jumped right into the frigid, murky water and swam to the unconscious man a couple of boat slips over. He said it took all his energy to get the man to the dock where he managed to grab a hose and wrap it around the man to keep him afloat until help arrived. David was honoured with a Certificate of Merit during the Port Credit in-water Boat Show. “He is a true local hero” said Wayne Petryk, General Manager of the Port Credit Harbour Marina. When David jumped in he had his cell phone in his pocket. Wayne Petryk, General Manager of the Port Credit Harbour Marina, presented David with a cheque to cover the cost of a new cell phone. “He is a true local hero” said Wayne. Community Captured wishes David much success in his pursuit of joining the RCMP.

Should I Stay OR
SHOULD I GO? Article by: STEPHANIE HEBB
ooner or later it happens to every homeowner; they realize that their home no longer meets their needs. Typically this is caused by a change in family status - need more space for kids or less when they grow up and leave home - but there are many other scenarios as well. The next question is what to do about it - sell or renovate? Here are some tips to help answer that pivotal question. First, examine the reasons why the home no longer works. Is the house too small? The living space ill-conformed to your changing needs? Maybe a remodel is the answer. Is the house too far away from a new job or a family member who you see often? Is the neighbourhood deteriorating? A renovation won’t be the answer.
But more importantly consider the value of your home. If your home is already at the top end of value in the neighbourhood, putting more money into it may turn it into a White Elephant - a house where the cost of the renovations won’t be recouped as a resale. This can be a finally devastating situation if a homeowner is forced to sell unexpectedly and ends up losing money. Either way you decide, use both your head and your heart to make the decision and it will be the right one for your situation.
Secondly, examine the financial pros and cons. On the one hand there is the cost of remodeling (and the sky is the limit depending on what you want to achieve) versus the cost of moving. Don’t underestimate the cost of moving which is typically about 10% of the value of the home by the time things like realtor commission, land transfer tax and the physical move itself are factored in.
How will I get you top dollar for your home? I’ll put my experience to work for you. • Expert negotiation skills • Extensive background in sales and marketing • Trusted by clients for over 20 years • Deep knowledge of the neighbourhood

SUNNY DAYS CAMP BBQ

In August, the Ontario Racquet Club hosted the Birmingham Wheelchair Tennis Classic. This top-level ITF Series 1 event was the strongest wheelchair tennis draw in Canada ever, with 27 players including six top-ten competitors, playing for a total of $30,000 USD prize money. It was one of the last events before the start of the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games. Japan's Shingo Kuneida took the men's singles event. Formerly the Number One player in Wheelchair Doubles, Kuneida took home gold medals in the Athens 2004, Beijing 2008 and London 2012 Paralympic Games. Germany's Katharina Krueger, currently 8th world-wide in women's wheelchair tennis, took the women's singles. The quad singles, an event for those with quadriplegia, was won by the USA's Bryan Barten. It was an inspiring event with some amazing players. The host club ORC is already looking forward to next year's tournament. Photo Credit: Ireena Haque & Bill Stepec
LORNE PARK SPARTANS TAKE A FOOTBALL TRIP TO MICHIGAN
School is only just beginning, but the Lorne Park Spartans Senior Football Team has already been at it for a month. The reason for their early start this year was an exciting three-day road trip from September 1st-3rd that included practices at the University of Windsor, an exhibition game against a Detroit Powerhouse at Wayne State University, and tickets to see the Michigan Wolverines play at The Big House. With a road-heavy exhibition schedule that also includes stops in Niagara Falls and Toronto, there can be no question that this trip to the Motor City will be the highlight of the preseason for the boys from Lorne Park. The Spartans were treated extremely well by the University of Windsor's players and coaches while they held their practices at Alumni Field. Joe D'Amore, the head coach of the Lancers spoke at length with the Lorne Park team and gave them a tour of their impressive new locker room and football facilities. The Spartans also had an opportunity to watch the Lancers practice as they prepared for their game against the Guelph Gryphons. On Friday, September 2nd, at Wayne State University in Detroit, the Spartans squared off under the lights against the 2014 Michigan State Champion De La Salle Pilots. It was a preseason game for the Spartans, but for the Pilots it was the second week of the regular season, and this game meant everything to their national ranking as they looked to return to the State Championship. The Spartans played hard, but with a roster full of NCAA potential, the Pilots cruised to a 42-6 victory. Despite the loss, the game was a tremendous learning experience for the Lorne Park players and coaches. In 2013, and 2014, the Spartans travelled to Ohio to play an exhibition game against the Dover Tornadoes. They were defeated handily in those two games as well, but returned to Canada to win Peel and Ontario Championships both times. The Spartans are hoping this experience brings similar results. On the last day of their trip, the Spartans travelled to The Big House in Ann Arbor to see the Michigan Wolverines open their season against the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors. Lost in a sea of over 110,000 screaming Wolverines fans, the Spartans cheered Michigan on to a 63-3 victory. From the game, to seeing Jim Harbaugh, Michael Jordan and Derek Jeter, to witnessing the spectacle that is the University of Michigan Marching Band, this was a day the Lorne Park players will never forget.

The Lorne Park Spartans Junior and Senior football programs have combined to win 38 Peel Championships, but being part of the team is about so much more than winning football games. It builds character, highlights the importance of education, creates a lifelong brotherhood, and instills discipline, accountability, leadership, and pride. On their trip to Michigan, the continued growth of these qualities was evident in these young men that served as wonderful representatives of not only Lorne Park, but also Canada.
TEEN GIRLS RAPPELLING, FIGHTING FLAMES IN 42°C HEAT AT CAMP IGNITE
Lyndsay Swanston is only 16 and can add ‘battling a burning car’ to her resume.
“It was amazing,” said the Burlington resident. “I mean, I’ve never done anything like that before.” Swanston is one of 18 participants at Camp Ignite, a five-day firefighting camp hosted by the City of Mississauga targeting girls ages 15 to 19.
“Not many kids our age get to do this,” said VanSickle. Faith Dunford, 17, of Hamilton was beaming after rappelling. It was “darn fun,” Dunford said. “The guys up there were supersupportive and like, I think that’s the coolest thing to do in firefighting. It’s pretty awesome, actually.” The hardest part so far, she says, is working in the heat while wearing “oven mitts” for pants.
The Aug 10 forecast wasn’t in their favour.
The training course is meant to get girls excited about working in the field.
Feeling like 42�C with the humidity, the girls were dressed in full gear, rappelling down a six-storey structure and deploying the hose at the Garry W. Morden Centre in Lisgar.
“They’re loving it,” said fire captain Shelli Varela. “You know what, it’s a hot day but they’re champs.”
“It was actually harder than I thought to put out the fire …I thought if I just focus on one section and move to the next it would kind of go out in order but that did not work because it just spread,” said Swanston. “So I learned that you have to keep it moving.” Moving while staying balanced. “This hose is pretty heavy,” said Swanston. “You get blown back by the power, so it’s good that you have the team behind you helping you out, holding it up.” Communication, she learned, was important, specifically when it comes to speed. “When I was going forward we were going too fast and I couldn’t keep up, so I had to let them know to slow down,” said Swanston. As for the temperature, “it’s kind of hard to differentiate” the heat between the sun, flames, and equipment, she said. Sweating aside, “it’s been a super-cool experience,” said Victoria VanSickle, 18, of Oakville. VanSickle says she accompanied her uncle, Bob Hall, a Mississauga Fire training officer, to a ‘take your child to work day’ in Grade 9 and knew firefighting was a career worth exploring.

Varela is Mississauga’s first female firefighter and only female fire captain. As of November 2015, women make up 3% of the city’s frontline firefighters. “I think it’s not necessarily important that women are represented in the fire service,” said Varela. “I think it’s more important that we have excellent firefighters. I think the misnomer though, is the best can’t be women.” The girls attending Wednesday are “athletic and a little more roughand-tumble, and a little more team-oriented,” said Varela. “We seem to have a lot of hockey players this year.”

ENRICHING YOUR LIFE WITH
ORIGINAL ART WHY BUY ORIGINAL ART?
Most of us respond to original art on an emotional level. Something in that piece speaks to us, elicits a memory, or excites the soul because of its colour, texture, or composition. When we find that connection it is important to embrace it and make it work, so that it becomes an addition to our collection that can be enjoyed for years to come. That one special piece of art can make a difference and change the whole space. T H E D IL E MMA Since the art you choose for your home is a personal choice and says something about you, why would you confine yourself to a colour that matches the sofa or a size that fills a predetermined space? And yet this is the dilemma that many patrons face when choosing art for their home, whether it is a newly decorated space with blank walls to fill, or an established room that needs a lift. Here are a few ideas to help you choose original art that both complements your décor and satisfies the soul: • Rather than one large painting arrange a grouping comprised of different sized paintings that will occupy the same space. Consider including ceramic wall plaques, bas-relief sculptures, small mirrors, etc. • Balance a large painting with two smaller ones to one side to create the large space you have over the sofa or over your mantle.
• Excite the eye by collecting a variety of media and group them together. Watercolour, oil, acrylic and lithography, wood cuts or block prints can be combined in a grouping. Organize around a colour scheme, black and white, or theme. • Consider the importance of line both within the painting and in a grouping. If you wish to emphasize the width of the room, opt for horizontal groupings or paintings with horizontal lines. This can create a calm or serene feeling. To create the illusion of height, choose tall paintings or paintings with vertical lines. Consider having a grouping of square paintings in a horizontal or vertical line. Diagonal lines within the painting create a sense of dynamic energy. • FRAMING: It is totally acceptable to hang unframed oil and acrylic paintings, especially if the artist has used a gallery canvas at least 2” deep. If you do choose to frame, ensure that the frame matches the painting, not just the furniture. If using a mat, white or off-white usually allows the viewer to enjoy the painting without distraction, and it makes it easier for grouping with other artwork. • LIGHTING: Consider adding focused lighting on a single piece or a grouping in order to create attention or drama. Opt for picture lamps, pot lights or track lighting depending on the space.

Dear The Wine Ladies,
A small group of us get together every couple of months for food and drink, and wine is increasingly becoming an important part of our socials. Last month we had a delicious red wine called Chateauneuf du Pape. My understanding is that this wine is unique because it is made with thirteen different kinds of grapes. Basically, I am a Cabernet or Shiraz kind of guy and I was just wondering if I heard this right and also if there might be a white Chateauneuf-du-Pape as well?
THE WINE LADIES Q&A Dear Stan,
Delicious indeed, the wines of Chateauneuf-du-Pape definitely rank among some of our favourites. Actually Stan, it is not obligatory to use all thirteen grape varieties when producing a Chateauneuf-du-Pape but vintners have the option to use any of, and/or up to all thirteen specific varietals. Quick note to add here, in the last few years the regulations were actually adjusted and up to eighteen varietals are now permitted. How and when did the original regulations come about? In 1923 the Baron Le Roy of Chateau Fortia, a vigneron of that time in Chateauneuf-du-Pape got together with the other growers and drew up a set of rules for the production of wines coming from this region. Actually the entire appellation system (Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée) in France as we know it today, was fashioned after this very set of regulations. Rules included dictating a minimum alcohol content (the first time in France, 12.5% the highest in France) and defining an area as permitted to be included in Chateauneuf-duPape. The Baron also included in the rules ten permissible grape varieties. In 1936 three additional grape varieties were added to the list bringing the total to thirteen. The most prominently used grape variety continues to be Grenache, with Mourvedre and Syrah (Shiraz as many know it) ranked second and third.
There is a white Chateauneuf-du-Pape produced, made of up to six white grape varieties, but only in very small quantities and not regularly available for purchase in Ontario and the other provinces. Chateauneuf-du-Pape, which translates to “new castle of the Pope”, is a historic village (as well known name of the appellation) between towns Avignon and Orange located in France’s southern Rhone. It is the best-known wine of the region and typically produces full bodied, powerful, juicy and complex red wines considered among the best of the Rhone Valley. The name dates back to the early 14th century when Avignon was chosen as the new home for the Pope’s court.

There were lots of dancing and delicious food. Sandra had the guests compete in a “triathlon.” Lots of laughter ensued as the “athletes” performed various tasks such as trying to flip a key in a cup. Team Gino were the winners!

Our first meeting will be held Thursday, September 22nd, at 7:15 pm in the schools Learning Commons. Parents/guardians, of a student registered at Graydon, are welcome to attend.

GORDON GRAYDON MEMORIAL
As you will see there are a number of events coming up that families will be interested in having information about for the school year.
SECONDARY SCHOOL Another school year is upon us, and the school community is alive with activity. Gordon Graydon Memorial Secondary School is excited about celebrating its 60th anniversary in 2017. Graydon opened its doors to students, for the first time, in 1957. For those who’ve walked the halls of the school, the history of the school is explained in the classrooms, hallways and gymnasium. The school’s Alumni Association is in the planning stages of a 60th reunion. More information, on that, will come as the school year continues. Like every year, Gordon Graydon offers students a number of opportunities in and out of the classroom. Our staff have been busy, over the summer, preparing for the new school year and are ready to support students in developing their critical thinking skills. Last year, our student (along with staff advisors) won the National Samsung Challenge which demonstrated how our students utilize their skills (taught by staff) to prepare them for the world. The staff at Graydon dedicate their time and energy in and out of the classroom. Students, in all our Regional Programs have the opportunity to participate in the annual team building trips throughout the month of September. Through these trips (organized by staff), students have the change to build trust, leadership capacity and become friends. Graydon offers a number of sports, clubs and committees for students to get involved with. They range from Robotics and DECA (where Gradyon’s teams have won international awards) to the Student Activities Association. Our Grade 9 students had the opportunity to participate in an amazing

...even in winter?
Ultraviolet (UV) light exposure can be very harmful to the human body. It can lead to a variety of diseases and cause irreversible damage in some cases. Protecting your eyes from the sun by wearing a good quality pair of sunglasses is just as important as protecting your skin by wearing sunscreen. Limiting the amount of exposure greatly reduces the chance of developing a variety of ocular conditions that may decrease vision. Since children's eye tissues are more delicate, UV light penetrates their eyes deeper. Thus their eyes are especially vulnerable to damage from UV radiation. Protecting their eyes from UV by having them wear sunglasses or a brimmed hat, etc is very important. A large percentage of UV eye damage occurs prior to the age of 20, thus sunglasses are an important part of any child’s attire. UV light can also be very harmful in the winter. The amount of UV exposure on a day with fresh snow is actually higher than the brightest summer day. This is due to the fact that snow reflects a high amount of UV into our eyes. Sunglasses with good quality lenses should be your first line of defense against the harmful effects of UV light to your eyes. Protect your eyes from the sun and always wear a pair of high quality sunglasses when outside all year round, especially if it's sunny or snowy. Also having your eyes evaluated every 1-2 years by an Optometrist is important to screen for and manage any eye conditions that may develop with UV light exposure over time. Sunglasses are an essential part of living a healthy lifestyle! Article supplied by Dr. Sean Karnani Expand your Vision, Change your World
