Centennial high school student Nina Falak tosses cans into a pile in front of the school during a waste audit Tuesday. Students in the school’s Global Outreach Club donned gloves to pick through a week’s worth of recycling and half a day’s worth of garbage to see how well the school is sorting its waste. Three years ago, for every one item properly recycled, 10 recyclables went into trash. This year, the club estimates that ratio to be 1:1. TRIBUNE PHOTO BY JESSICA LOVELL

Clean and Green helpers wanted The City of Guelph is looking for volunteers to clean up local roads during the ninth annual Clean and Green Community Cleanup. Residents have until April 13 to register for this year’s event, which will take place on Saturday April 21 from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. The city is hosting the event to reduce litter in the community. Cleanup crews will pick up litter along predetermined roadways and boulevards that need spring cleaning, a news release said. Trash will be collected in brightly

coloured garbage bags so passersby can easily see the amount of litter throughout the city, it said. Last year, over 900 bags, or 11,000 kilograms, of garbage was removed from neighbourhood streets, green spaces and parks by more than 1,000 volunteers, it said. Crews will be provided with supplies and information about safely collecting litter. Volunteers are invited to attend an appreciation barbecue following the event. To register, call 519-837-5628, ext. 2047, or visit Guelph.ca/cleanandgreen.

Ukrainian Easter egg decorating

Bike season hits Guelph

Police talk to a driver in the aftermath of another collision involving a cyclist on Monday evening – the second in as many weeks. The 12-year-old cyclist was hit after she disobeyed a red light and rode her bike across Silvercreek Parkway and into the path of a car. The driver slammed on his brakes, and his efforts are believed to have minimized the girl’s injuries, a news release said. The cyclist was taken to hospital for medical treatment. With the arrival of the warm weather, police are reminding cyclists to obey the rules of the road, just as drivers are required to do. They are also reminded to ride with heightened awareness of motorists, who may not be looking for cyclists sharing the road.

St. Mary’s Ukrainian Church on York Road is inviting the community to celebrate Easter – Ukrainian style – with its Easter Bazaar and Ukrainian Easter egg workshop. The April 7 event will feature cabbage rolls, perogies and baked goods for sale, and a chance to try creating Ukrainian Easter eggs. Dyes, tools and designs will also be available for sale, a news release said. The event will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., with lunch available between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.

U of G would love a piece of 1 Stone Road BY DOUG HALLETT Guelph Tribune

T

he University of Guelph has cast a covetous eye on 1 Stone Rd. W., after the provincial government’s surprise announcement that it plans to sell it to help balance Ontario’s budget. U of G president Alastair Summerlee says the 364,000-sq.-ft. building, which is the headquarters of Ontario’s Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, would be “an incredible addition” to the university’s facilities, especially for the “huge whack of teaching room” that it contains. However, the OMAFRA building, as it’s commonly known, “is likely to be very expensive,” and the U of G “would need a partner” to have any real chance of buying the building, Summerlee

told a recent town hall meeting on campus. Summerlee wasn’t available this week to elaborate on the comments he made at the town hall meeting, which are in a podcast on the U of G’s website. But the co-leader of the town hall

meeting, Maureen Mancuso, confirmed the university has a real interest in the building on Stone Road. “Given that the building is pretty much on the campus, we naturally would be interested in it,” said the U of G’s provost and vice-pres-

ident (academic) in an email sent Tuesday in response to a Tribune query. “When opportunities arise we always assess them,” Mancuso said. “This is a strategic corner in close proximity to the main campus. Also there are classroom and small meeting/seminar rooms in the building that would help expand our classroom inventory. This would have to be put in the context of having a really solid business case, without which we would not proceed.” The province plans to sell and lease back the OMAFRA building and government buildings in seven other cities through its agency Infrastructure Ontario. It’s expected the sale would be done through a formal Request for Proposal (RFP) process, local MPP Liz

Sandals said Tuesday. Sandals said she hasn’t talked with the U of G about buying the OMAFRA building, and she isn’t expecting Infrastructure Ontario to seek her input on the sale. “They won’t ask me for comments, because if there was political interference it would not be a clean business transaction,” she said. The province will be looking for “the best proposal from a business standpoint,” Sandals said in an interview. The government buildings won’t be sold unless there’s a good “longterm” financial benefit for the province, she said. Sandals said she doesn’t know the vacancy rate for the building, which was built in 1996. OMAFRA is its anchor tenant, but space is also leased to other government ministries and agen-

cies. She said OMAFRA will remain there even after the building is sold. Asked what the implications of a sale would be in terms of property taxes payable to the city, Sandals said this is one of the financial factors that would have to be considered as part of an RFP process. Mike Balnar, who heads a big local property management firm, said it’s hard to estimate what price the OMAFRA building might fetch without knowing what the rents would be. The sale price for such a building “is based on square footage, but more importantly it is based on rent,” he told the Tribune this week. “So I expect the purchaser will be purchasing the building based on income that company will be receiving,” he said.

His experience, knowledge and professionalism will be missed at the county,” county Warden Chris White said in the release. Dyer’s “leadership has put the county in a strong position to face future financial challenges,” said county CAO Scott Wilson. Dyer “leaves the county on a solid financial foundation, which includes an AA credit rating,” John Green, who chairs the county’s administration, finance and personnel committee, said in the release.

City hall is warning about the possibility of discoloured water as it starts several weeks of watermain cleaning in various parts of the city. This spring’s maintenance work, which is to end May 4, started this week in parts of the south end. Watermain cleaning in the affected areas will be done between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. to minimize impact on customers, a news release said. People will receive hand-delivered notices before watermain cleaning begins on their street. “During the cleaning process, customers in the affected area may experience discoloured water during the cleaning process and are advised to limit water use,” the release said. “While ingesting small quanti-

ties of discoloured water is unlikely to create a health risk, it is recommended that customers wait until water clarity returns to normal before consuming water.” The city has about 600 kilometres of buried watermain pipe, and it uses two cleaning methods. To swab a watermain, a soft, pelletshaped material is inserted into the watermain and pushed along by water pressure; the swab scours the watermain as it travels through the watermain. To flush a watermain, high-velocity water flowing from hydrants is used to remove loose sediment. For more information about the watermain cleaning program or about discoloured water, call 519-837-5627 or visit guelph.ca/water.

Be careful, courteous W

e heard this week that one of our readers wasn’t amused by Tribune cartoonist Brian Fray’s editorial page offering in Tuesday’s edition. It humorously depicted a cyclist flying over a car hood after a collision. Fray wasn’t making fun of cyclists or drivers, though. Instead, following in the footsteps of a story in last Thursday’s Trib that listed Guelph Police safety Car-bicycle tips for cyclists, Fray was drawing relations more attention to a serious problem that arrives with each spring. On Page 3 of today’s edition, Fray’s cartoon has come to life. Fortunately, no lives were lost in this collision between a car and Let’s all a bike ridden by a 12-year-old girl. get along City hall has been doing a lot to make cycling a more attractive proposition in Guelph by adding more bike lanes and multi-use trails, and even by experimenting with new bike-travel amenities along parts of Stone Road. However, the fact remains that bikes and cars often have an uneasy relationship on our roads. Drivers must be careful around cyclists and recognize their right to be on the road. Cyclists, for their part, need to be so very careful on the roads, recognizing their own vulnerability as well as their responsibility to abide by the same rules of the road that car drivers have to follow. It’s a welcome sign of spring to see bikes back all over the place. Rather than just hoping bike-car collisions can be avoided, though, let’s all – drivers and cyclists alike – show enough care and courtesy to make it happen.

Another sign of spring is when people start talking about various sorts of plantings. And in this respect there’s something new afoot in Guelph – a project to plant edible fruit and nut trees on accessible land in the city. The Guelph Community Orchard Project, which will start planting an organic orchard at a local church in May, should provide a good example for Guelphites. (Squirrels will probably like it too, as an alternative to the black walnut trees common in some areas of the city.) Hopefully, the project will result in less planting of ornamental varieties of trees that have had the edible qualities bred out of them. The point is to show people that food does grow on trees. “This is not to go to waste and fall to the ground; this is to eat,” says a project organizer. Sounds good to us.

Good sorts Thumbs up to Centennial high school students who improved their recycling efforts. And thumbs up to those who did the audit.

Bad sorts Thumbs down to those who are too lazy to learn and practise proper ways of recycling. It’s not hard and it helps the environment.

But is it Guelph? Guelph Civic Museum recently received this old photograph of “Central Garage” and is seeking information about it from Trib readers. First, was this photo taken in Guelph?

Letters to THE TRIBUNE

Fear not market meat vendors T

he recent E. coli scare has heightened people’s interest in knowing where their meat comes from. It’s reminded me why the hundreds of trips I’ve made from Toronto to Wellington County in the last few years have been worth it – first on a year-long internship on a farm near Rockwood, and later as a volunteer board member and market manager at the Aberfoyle Farmers’ Market. Learning about small-scale farming and animal husbandry at Whole Circle Farm and

helping to build the Aberfoyle Farmers’ Market have been immensely gratifying. As a consumer myself, I’ve watched with satisfaction as visitors to the Aberfoyle market have built trusting relationships with the meat vendors. Visitors are reasonably sure that they’ll get a direct answer to their question, “Tell me about your farm and where your meat comes from?” Peter McClusky Toronto

Don’t kill Katimavik program S

now was still on the ground in late March 1986 when a group of Katimavik alumni and supporters, including myself, set out to ride our bicycles from Toronto to Ottawa in support of Senator Jacques Hébert, who was on a hunger strike in the lobby of the Senate in protest over a decision by the governing Tories to end the Katimavik program, which he had helped establish in 1977. Since then, Katimavik has harnessed the power of over 30,000 Canadian youth to help more than 500 community non-profit organizations across Canada. Katimavik provides opportunities for young Canadians to participate in an intensive six-month period of highly structured volunteer service where they improve their second official language, learn about environmental stewardship and Canadian cultures, and develop a healthy lifestyle and leadership skills. Twenty years later I witnessed both my

daughters leave for Katimavik as children and return as independent, responsible and self-sufficient members of our community who have continued to be engaged in civic affairs long after leaving the program. Truth be told, my daughters attained a level of maturity and self-confidence as a result of their participation in the Katimavik program that took me years to achieve on my own. I cannot overstate how significant this program is to those who participate, the community groups they serve and the future of our country. Katimavik is good investment, because it assures a crop of new leaders to take charge in the next generation. If it is true that “our kids are our future,” we cannot allow this uniquely Canadian investment in our future to be destroyed. Mike Salisbury Guelph

“Family doctors are not really aware of the options either,” says Dr. Takhar from Dr. Takhar’s Cosmetic Clinic. ”Many people come to us because they simply want to know what is out there that works and what is out there that is merely a dream. Unfortunately the regulations are very lax leading to some very unfortunate consequences like inexperienced, untrained professionals doing Botox and even physicians doing procedures out of their scope of practice. So what should consumers do ? The internet is a mixed blessing so that is little comfort. The best thing to do is to be armed with the right questions. One of the most important questions to ask is, who exactly is doing the procedure. Is it a doctor or a nurse or is it a technician or maybe even an aesethician. “Our clinic ONLY has nurses and doctors but some facilities have much lesser qualified staff doing procedure, “ says Natalie, head nurse at Dr. Takhar’s Cosmetic Clinic. The next question to ask is what type of laser is being used. Some lasers are aesethetic grade and some are physician grade, As you would expect – there is a difference in safety, efficacy, and long term benefit. Another popular question is why is Botox priced so differently in places. Here it is important to ensure that it is a physician injecting, that the correct Botox is being injected and most importantly that it is not diluted. “Many clinics have been diluting the Botox and the patient thinks they are getting a good deal, when in fact they are exposing themselves to complications and a less effective treatment. Even within the physician population it is important to ask what the doctors qualifications are . Ask if they are members of CAAM and members of the CPSO. If going for surgery – ensure it is a qualified plastic surgeon registered with RCPS.The cost of the procedure is dependent on the quality of the product, the quality of the service and the steps that have been taken to ensure safety, sterile conditions and your overall well being. It is important to remember, that like most things in life, you get what you pay for!!

NOTICE Spring street sweep and cleanup has started Guelph’s Public Works crews have taken to the streets to sweep and flush away winter grit, sand and salt from roadways. A focal point of the downtown area, the market continues to be a community place where families shop for quality meats, cheese, produce, baked goods, ethnic foods, arts and crafts.

OPEN YEAR-ROUND Saturdays 7 a.m.–12 p.m.

The cleanup is done by the City with assistance from outside contractors. This year, Guelph’s spring street sweep and cleanup started Monday, April 2 and will continue until approximately April 13.

Located at the corner of Gordon Street and Waterloo Avenue

guelph.ca/farmersmarket

Parking available at Wilson Street and Fountain Street lots

Residents are asked to help work crews by sweeping winter sand— not garden dirt or leaves—from sidewalks into street gutters as soon as possible. Depositing anything else, such as glass, nails, metal scraps or refuse, violates Ontario’s Highway Traffic Act. During the cleanup, residents are asked to park their cars and trucks in driveways and garages during the day if possible, rather than on roadways. Crews will operate Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.

NOTICE Spring Watermain Cleaning Program To reduce the likelihood of customers experiencing discoloured or brown water, Guelph Water Services is completing the spring component of its Watermain Cleaning Program. The program began Monday, April 2 and end Friday, May 4. Watermain cleaning will take place weekdays between the hours of 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. Customers may experience discoloured water during the cleaning process. The areas to be cleaned during the Spring Watermain Cleaning Program are indicated by the bold streets in the map.

LEARNING ABOUT

Discoloured water results when iron and manganese, minerals that are naturally present in Guelph’s groundwater, combine with chlorine to form small rust particles or flakes. The chlorine Guelph is required to add to its groundwater aggravates this situation. Iron sediment normally settles on the bottom of the City’s watermain piping, but can be disturbed during system maintenance or during times of high water use to cause discoloured water.

SHOULDN’T

The purpose of the watermain cleaning program is to remove accumulated sediment from the City’s watermains. Customers connected to the watermain being cleaned and residents in the immediate area may experience discoloured water. This is a normal part of the cleaning program. To minimize customer inconvenience, Water Services delivers notification letters to these affected customers prior to the beginning of cleaning activities. Occasionally, customers located outside the watermain cleaning area may also experience discoloured water. These instances of discoloured water may be due to the migration of discoloured water from one area of the distribution system to another and/or high water demand. If you experience discoloured water and have not been notified of watermain cleaning in your area, please contact Guelph Water Services. April 30 - May 2 May 3

Program reaches out to families The Wellington-Guelph Drug Strategy Committee is launching a new program in Guelph meant to increase family stability and reduce the risk of substance use problems, depression, violence and delinquency. Strengthening Families Parent and Youth is an evidence-based program involving entire families, and is designed for families

with children between the ages of 12 and 16, a news release said. Research has shown that programs such as this one increase youth resilience and life skills, increase positive and effective parenting, and increase family communication, it said. The program will begin at St. John Bosco School on April 25. It runs once a week

for nine weeks, Wednesdays from 5 to 7:30 p.m. There is no cost and all families are welcome, but space is limited, the release said. Families must register by April 11 by contacting Amy Larson at 519-8216638, ext. 402 or alarson@guelphchc.ca. Free childcare is provided on-site, and assistance and transportation be arranged.

Flipping pancakes fundraiser for Ecuador Grace Community Church will be flipping pancakes on Good Friday to support its Youth Mission trip to Ecuador. The trip will see 22 youth and young adults head to Ecuador to help build a school and medical centre.

To raise money for the endeavor, the church at 7427 Wellington County Road 30 will hold a Good Friday Pancake Breakfast from 9 to 11 a.m. For tickets, contact the church at 519837-1457.

Caught stealing scrap metal Police have arrested a 30-year-old Arthur man following an investigation into thefts of scrap metal from a local business. Police were contacted by the business March 19 to investigate a series of suspected internal thefts of a substantial amount of scrap metal from the facility, a news release said. On April 3 at around 7:30 a.m., police concluded their investigation with the arrest of an employee from the business, it said. The man was charged with three counts of break, enter and theft, three counts of theft under $5,000, possession

of marijuana and possession of crystal methamphetamine.

Wal-Mart employee busted A Wal-Mart employee is facing theft charges for taking cash from the local store. Police were called to the Woodlawn Road store shortly after noon on Tuesday, following an internal investigation by a loss-prevention officer, said Guelph Police spokesperson Sgt. Doug Pflug. Police arrived on scene and a 44-yearold woman was arrested. She is charged with three counts of theft under $5,000.

Fantastic Prices – How Do They Do It? “It takes one full year to build a single season of stock,” says franchise co-owner Melania Drake. “We accept gently used items at any time, regardless of the season, that are freshly laundered and folded, and we offer cash on the spot for what we accept.” The counter is divided into two sections for the convenience of those selling to the store, and those who come in to shop for bargains. The “sellers” are given a wait time, and are free to browse, while knowledgeable staff assesses the goods brought to them. “We put safety first,” Melania notes. “We inspect all toys and equipment to ensure they meet the current safety standards and for any safety recalls. We check clothing for wear and tear, fading and staining. We also select clothing that meets the current styles.” Safety also reflects their store environment

and layout, and staff workers are trained. Melania says that they only accept items that are brought in boxes, bins or totes. “Often our customers trade new items for items they can’t use any more, or they’ll get a great discount from what we’ve offered to buy.” Melania wants whatever you don’t want any more, but gently used SHOES and BOOTS are especially welcomed. You don’t need an appointment either.

Testing their skills Danielle Moore makes alterations to her garment during the Skills Canada Fashion Design Competition, which was held last week at the Triangle Sewing Centre. In eight hours, students were required to design and construct a jacket for a young woman attending a spring wedding. Students from the Upper Grand and Wellington Catholic district school boards have been taking part in 26 regional skills competitions, which varied from hairstyling to computer-aided manufacturing. Winning students from the regional competitions move on to the provincial level competitions in Waterloo from April 30 to May 2.

Matthew Stein works with a table saw at GCVI during the Cabinetmaking Competition last Friday morning. Students were required to replicate a small onedrawer chest with crown molding details.

Alex Rolph and her teammate Andres Gatten review footage during the TV/Video Production competition, which was held at Conestoga College’s Guelph campus on Friday. Each team of two was required to storyboard, shoot and edit a 30-second commercial selling clean air to the audience. Masoumah Tahari concentrates on her design as she takes part in the Architectural Technology and Design competition at John F. Ross CVI. On Friday morning, students were given three hours to make working drawings for a twostorey house from basic floor plans.

Tax Tip of the Week How do I claim medical expenses on my tax return? You must collect all your receipts that are eligible to be deducted. You may only claim for a one year period ending in the tax year (year of death 24 month). If you are part of a family it is best to include all receipts on the lower income taxpayer, as long as they have taxable income. The first 3% of your net income is deducted off the claim; the balance becomes a non-refundable tax

credit. A full list of things that may be claimed is listed on CRA’s web site. Most common claims; prescriptions, dental, chiropractic and foot care, most commonly missed claims; medical travel for medical services obtained more than 40km, travel, lodging and meals if over 80km, and private insurance premiums (including travel insurance for vacations). Starting March 4, 2010 cosmetic services will no longer be claimable. For example braces to straighter teeth only, crowns, teeth whitening, liposuction, Botox, hair replacement.

Call a LIBERTY TAX OFFICE to find out more details.

A well-maintained property T he very latest in interior decorating, a home and garden that are the envy of the neighbourhood, a house that doesn’t show its age... Keeping up with this combination of factors could lead to a considerable increase in the value of your property. The upkeep of a home often just involves small yearly modifications and simple jobs. A neat exterior, well-pruned hedges, materials in a good state of repair, and a clear, unimpeded view of the home all add up to a well-maintained property and a proud homeowner. Where the exterior is concerned, maintaining the siding should be your priority, as this will protect your home from bad weather for years to come. The roof is the other part of your home that should never be neglected. For example, the state of the roof could deteriorate if moss is

allowed to cover it. Don’t neglect the concrete surrounding an in-ground pool and always protect garden furniture from the harmful rays of the sun. Did you know that a well-planned yard can increase the value of your property? As they grow, the trees you plant will add to the worth of your home as well as adding to your comfort both outside and inside: trees block the wind in cool weather and provide shade on hot summer days. That can mean a reduction in both air-conditioning and heating costs. So give free rein to your gardening talents by planting trees, creating flower beds, and establishing hedges. Lastly, spread compost to enrich your soil for a beautiful lawn and don’t forget to weed regularly in order to enhance the appearance of your shrubs and flowers.

Is there a right way to plant flowers?

P

lanting flowers is as simple as digging a hole, positioning the plant, and filling the hole with soil, right? Unfortunately it’s not that simple, at least not if you want your flowers to thrive. Here are a few tips for successful planting.

find their first nutritional elements in the soil in order to develop properly. Once that has happened, apply a liquid fertilizer, such as 15-30-15, once every 15 days. Never apply fertilizer to dry soil. Take the time to water it beforehand so that the fertilizer doesn’t burn your plants.

The right time to plant depends on the type of flowers chosen. Spring-flowering perennials (perennials are plants which live several years and flower on a regular basis) should be planted at the end of the summer. Summer-flowering plants should be planted in the spring. Annuals, which are flowers that only live for one summer, should be planted as soon as all risk of frost is over. It is preferable to plant at the end of the afternoon or on a cloudy day so that your plants are exposed to as little heat as possible. If you cannot put them in the ground on the same day as you purchase them, they should be stored in a shady area, sheltered from the wind.

Should freshly planted flowers be watered with a fertilizer so they will grow more quickly? Definitely not! New plants must be allowed to start a root Proper planting techniques ensure system before they are fertilized. They have to be able to the health of your plants.

A garden in the shade of a tree

T

rees spring to mind when most people think about shade gardens, but the often neglected north side of a home should not be forgotten. In any shady zone, you can create plots for conifers, shrubs, perennials, or shade-loving annuals, meaning they can live with about two hours of sunshine per day. The denser leaves of trees such as maples and limes create a deeper shade than birches, and the lower the branches are, the denser the shade will be. To cultivate a wider range of plants, prune back low branches to a minimum height of 1.5 metres.

PANSY TRAYS Reg. $15.99

When creating flower beds under older trees, which often have large roots near the surface, raised beds are best. Be sure to raise them at least 20 centimetres from the ground and choose plant species which do not develop deep roots. Try to be creative and avoid making a small, symmetrical flower bed circling the base of the tree. The result is not always aesthetically pleasing, especially if filled with a gaudy mix of annuals. A better idea is to create a good-sized flower bed with curving lines that will also facilitate grass cutting. If you love a harmonious but striking visual effect in your garden, plant large areas with just one plant species: a green groundcover, such as pachysandra, will create a stunningly elegant effect while a flowering plant, such as lily of the valley, will produce beautiful fragrances in the spring. If you prefer more contrast and colour, then yellow, orange, pink, and white annuals are just the thing. The number of colours should, however, be limited to two or three, and the plants should be positioned in concentric lines.

Essay contest asks writers to pen ‘My School Days’ reminiscences The Wellington County Historical Society is continuing its writing contest tradition with the theme of “My School Days” for this year’s competition. The contest, which has a deadline of April 17, offers a chance to reminisce about school day experiences, including favourite subjects, memories of schoolmates, or influential teachers, a news release said. “Running since 1933, this competition provides an opportunity for both young and old to retell and reflect upon their personal experiences,” said historical society board member Steve Revell in the release. “The stories provide a special glimpse into life in Wellington County and also serve as valuable primary sources for researchers and historians.” The competition is open to all ages, with

Leo Barei took this photo of his son Quinn during a Guelph Environmental Leadership/Macdonald Stewart Art Centre event Saturday night. The colourful candlelight display at the centre’s sculpture park was created to encourage people to take part in Earth Hour.

Earth Hour participation down

Though Earth Hour enthusiasts are still abundant in the city, it seems that fewer people observed the ritual this year. During Earth Hour on March 31, Guelph Hydro registered a drop in electricity load of 1.8 per cent. “That is like removing 1,000 homes from the grid, so clearly, lots of residents and businesses took steps to power down for Earth Hour,” Guelph Hydro’s director of corporate communications Sandy Manners said in a news release. This result was not quite as good as last year’s drop of 2.2 per cent, but the community showed enthusiasm

for the event, the release said. Those that participated included restaurants serving candlelight dinners and the Macdonald Stewart Art Centre, which featured an illumination display of 500 LED tealight lanterns in the Sculpture Park. As well, about 150 people took part in the second annual Guelph Lights Out Relay, walking, running or cycling parts of a 60-kilometre route to remind people to turn off their lights. Another 40 residents in the Hanlon Creek neighbourhood held a street party to cheer on the relay participants as they passed.

CANDIES OF MERRITT Guelph’s Finest It’s All About Tradition Hand-Made Chocolates The warm weather says that it’s Spring and that means Easter is fast approaching. It’s Since 1972 one of the most joyful days of the year and a lot of people choose to add chocolate to their celebration. At Candies of Merritt they’ve been putting in extra hours getting everything ready. Chocolate bunny making has been done with the same care for over 95 years in this family business. Each chocolate bunny, egg or other novelty has been carefully molded by hand. Any that don’t pass inspection are remelted and the rest move on to be trimmed of excess chocolate around the edges. Finally they are hand decorated, some being finished with icing flowers or jelly beans. It’s a time honoured tradition that means a lot to generations of Ontarians, even those who now live far away.

Hand Decorated Bunnies and Eggs

This traditional approach to candymaking seems to resonate with people. “Our chocolates get shipped all over the country,” explains Bruce Merritt, “ and we recently had a lady from Germany stop by to pick up her supply of peppermint patties.” “People come into our store and tell us they haven’t seen decorated bunnies and eggs like ours in decades,” Bruce tells me, “But I just can’t imagine doing anything less. This is the way my parents and grandparents always did things and this is how I’m teaching my children. It’s a lot of work, but it’s the most satisfying job around.”

Little Breeches back in the saddle Sunrise Therapeutic Riding and Learning Centre’s “Little Breeches” Club has sessions starting this month. The club provides a safe, fun introduction to horses for children ages four to seven with or without special needs, a news release

said. Participants will groom miniature horses, meet Sunrise’s donkeys and alpacas, and learn all about horses through hands-on activities, crafts and games. They will also have the chance to ride a horse, the release said. The program runs over

five Saturdays, April 14, 21 and 28, and May 5 and 12, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. An afternoon session may be added if there are enough people interested. Visit www.sunrise-therapeutic.ca, or call 519-8370558, ext. 21, to register.

Textile artist gives talk next week A textile artist whose inspirations are grounded in science will be sharing the philosophy behind her art in a seminar at the University of Guelph’s Arboretum on April 13. Lorraine Roy holds a BSc in agriculture from the U of G, and for over 25 years she has drawn from her science

background to create thoughtful works that speak to audiences of all backgrounds, a news release said. In her talk, titled “The Embroidered Tree: My journey with science and art,” she will speak about the scientific and aesthetic search for truth, and how trees and

their seeds became the focus of her imagery. She will illustrate her talk with images and real works from her tree and seedinspired collections. The free talk will take place at 3 p.m. in the Arboretum auditorium. Complimentary coffee, tea and cookies will be served.

Dine out and help AIDS group On April 25, all you have to do is go out for dinner to be supporting the fight against HIV and AIDS in Guelph and Wellington County. During the AIDS Committee of Guelph and Wellington County’s A Taste For Life event, when people eat out at one of the local participating restaurants, 25 per cent of the bill will be donated to the organization.

Everyone who dines out during the event will get a chance to win a door prize at each participating restaurant, a news release said. Over the past three years, Taste has raised $25,000 for the AIDS Committee’s programming to help those infected and affected with HIV and AIDS, it said. Participating restaurants include: (from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.) Cora, Get Juiced, and With the Grain Bakery

Café; and (from 5 p.m. to close) Aberfoyle Mill, Atmosphere Café, Babel Fish Bistro, Bollywood Bistro, Fifty West Restaurant, Manhattan’s Pizza Bistro, NV Lounge, The Cornerstone, The Happy Traveller Café, The Works Gourmet Burger Bistro, Zen Gardens, East Mill Tapa’s and Grill in Elora, The Brew House on the Grand in Fergus, and Envers in Morriston.

Glass Menagerie hits the GLT stage

The well-known Tennessee Williams play The Glass Menagerie will be staged by Guelph Little Theatre from April 13 to 28. The story and characters in this memory play closely mimic Williams’ own life, a news release said. A destitute mother who married against her wealthy family’s wishes is now desperately trying to give her adult children more security and respectability than she herself has found, thus trying to protect them from harsh realities looming in their future, it said. She pushes her son to work at an unfulfilling job and to help find a suitable suitor for his handicapped sister, who collects fragile glass ornaments. “Although The Glass Menagerie captures some of the seemingly claustrophobic nature of today’s family life, with its paranoid concerns over the evils lurking outside our doors and the overwhelming expectations and desires for our children, it also gives us beautiful glimpses of love and hope and the need for optimism in a changing world,” the release said. The GLT show directed by Tony de Ciantis will be staged 10 times at 176 Morris St., with 8 p.m. shows on April 13, 14, 19, 20, 21, 26, 27 and 28. There are 2 p.m. matinees on April 15 and 22. Tickets can be bought through the GLT box office, by telephone at 519-821-0270 or online at www.guelphlittletheatre.com

Guelph native has been named the new executive director of the Rosebud Centre of the Arts, which runs a resident theatre company for young adults in the rural Badlands region of Alberta. Adam Furfaro, who graduated from the University of Windsor’s School of Dramatic Art in 1986, has worked since then in theatre as a producer, artistic director, actor, administrator, educator, director and playwright, a news release said. After conducting a national search, Rosebud’s board is “deeply grateful that Adam Furfaro, a nationally recognized stage director and theatre teacher, has chosen to accept the leadership position at the Rosebud Centre of the Arts,” board chair Colin Jackson said in the release. The Rosebud centre is a place where young adults can “learn the skills of the performing arts within a resident theatre company and a faith-based curriculum,” the release said. It’s “a major Alberta cultural success story where the rich heritage and deep optimism of rural Alberta is expressed and shared.” Furfaro said he’s looking forward to moving to the hamlet of Rosebud this summer. “Rosebud Theatre will continue to be a cultural beacon offering inventive, entertaining, thoughtful and challenging theatre, supplemented by new subscription music, comedy and family series, weekend summer festivals, outdoor concerts, events and arts camps,” he said.

APRIL IS THE MONTH TO FIGHT BACK!

Every three minutes, another Canadian is faced with fighting cancer. Many people know first-hand the devastation that cancer brings and that is why we are asking you to join the fight against cancer by wearing a daffodil pin this April during Daffodil Month. Too often, those faced with cancer feel isolated. The Daffodil Pin is a bright reminder to everyone in Guelph and Wellington County living with cancer that they are not alone. There is comfort and strength in numbers. The more people we can bring together, the stronger we’ll be in the fight against cancer. Throughout April, volunteers in Guelph and across Ontario will be working together to raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society. By making a donation and wearing the yellow daffodil pin, you are uniting behind those living with cancer.

Money raised during Daffodil Month helps the Society prevent cancer, fund research to outsmart cancer and empower, inform and support people living with cancer right here in our community.

“To some, the daffodil is just a flower,” says Lorraine Skarratt, Unit Manager, Wellington County Unit, Canadian Cancer Society. “To us it is a symbol of strength and courage, a symbol of life. It says that we will fight back and beat cancer.” In 2011 Daffodil Month raised an inspiring $62,000 in Guelph and Wellington County For 2012, the Society hopes to continue that excellent work Visit fightback.ca or call Lorraine Skarratt at 519 824 4261for more information about Daffodil Month, where to get your daffodil pin or to volunteer.

Talkin’ Storm pucks and bucks Storm GM and alumni weigh in on junior hockey player payment BY NED BEKAVAC Guelph Tribune

C

ody St. Jacques studies economics at the University of Guelph. But he knows that it doesn't take a financial wizard to figure out that $50 a week doesn't amount to all that much. “The inflation rates are a little bit ridiculous, and 50 bucks doesn’t go very far these days,” says St. Jacques. St. Jacques is a former Guelph Storm goaltender who currently plays for the University of Guelph Gryphons men’s hockey team. While playing for the Storm a few years back, St. Jacques, like others, got paid about $50 a week. He thinks junior hockey players should get a bigger chunk of change than what they are getting. Junior hockey can be a booming business and there are lots of opinions out there on whether players are receiving enough financial compensation. The Tribune recently chatted with three exStorm players, and the team’s current vice president and general manager, for their thoughts. “It’s a funny topic. It gets brought up outside the rink sometimes,” says former Stormer Andrew Long. “Like, wow, this is a pretty big business. And you tell people what you got paid – they laugh.” Nathan Martine, a current Gryphons player who played for the Storm from 2007 to 2009, thinks players probably deserve a bigger piece of the financial pie. “Look at how many people they're packing in the buildings now, and ticket prices are $15 to $20,” says Martine. “And if you get a big name player like a Drew Doughty or a Pat Kane, and you're selling tons of merchandise with their name on it, I think players should probably get a cut out of that.” St. Jacques, Long and Martine all said there are lots of financial pluses to being an OHLer, among them the educational packages available to players. “There are a lot of benefits,” says Martine. But $50 a week pay didn't quite cut it, say the current Gryphons. “Looking back now, I don't know how I lived off of $50 a week. Thank God you have a great billeting system and stuff like that to help you out,” says St. Jacques. “It’s not a lot of money,” says Martine. One of the challenges for players can be time. If a player is in

school, that means they have practice, games, travel, school and homework. There isn’t much time to land a part-time job. “That’s the thing. You don’t have any other way of getting income. You’re either at the rink, or in school, or at home,” says St. Jacques. “There is absolutely zero opportunity of picking up an extra job,” says Long.

‘And you tell people what you got paid – they laugh’ Mike Kelly, current Storm vice president and general manager, says the amount of money invested in players is substantial. “The reality is, the compensation for kids playing in this league goes well beyond $50 a week,” says Kelly. “The biggest component is education. Virtually every player that plays here gets a scholarship and the minimum scholarship now, whether it’s a 15th-round player or even a free agent player, would be

the equivalent of tuition, books and mandatory fees. When we’re budgeting, that’s about $8,500 a year, and that’s the minimum,” Kelly says. He says the 50 bucks a week is just designed to give the players a bit of cash for the wallet. “What we give them is pocket money, so to speak. I don’t think too many parents want kids wandering around with $300 or $400 a week in their pocket, you know. “It’s an allowance type of thing,” said Kelly. The players get lots of stuff taken care of, he says, and the nuanced educational component “probably amounts to about $300 a player (per week) that would have to be put aside to be able to cover” it. “Then, of course, you got the room and board, which could take some pressure off mom and dad for feeding these kids for 30 weeks,” Kelly says. Long, who got $40 a week when he played for the Storm in the ’90s, says that while he doesn’t necessarily think “the kids need any more money while they play,” he says that “not everyone is going to be a scholastic. “For those kids, it would be nice for them to get a certain amount of

money for each year of service,” says Long, whose post-Storm career included pro play in the AHL and ECHL.

‘The reality is, the compensation for kids playing in this league goes well beyond $50 a week’ “Even when they’re done, if they didn’t play pro, and they didn’t go to university, or if they only played one or two years of pro, they’d still have some sort of investment set up from when they played junior,” says Long, adding that lots of the pro leagues pay “peanuts anyway.” He says: “The big thing is the guy turns pro and the school package is gone. The guys that need it the most are the guys that are kind of the fringe players.” Long, a local real estate agent, figures the existing setup is here to stay. “I think the players are treated very well in junior, and they are in

the best feeder system to the NHL, and that’s kind of what it's set up for,” he says. “But for things to change and for players to get more, they'd have to stand up themselves (and speak out). Which I just don't think you’ll ever see.” Long also says paying players more could hurt parity in the league because some markets really struggle to draw fans, whereas others pack their rinks. For St. Jacques, the idea of getting some more money wasn’t something he thought about back when he wore the Storm logo. “You don’t realize it, because you’re kind of in bliss that you're in the OHL and that you're playing in almost the highest junior level in the world,” he said. “I’m not saying pay these players significant amounts, but a better pay makes a lot of things simpler I guess," he said. Martine sums it up. “It comes with the territory. If you’re getting your school out of it” that’s great. “And you’re getting a couple of extra bucks. They take care of a lot of meals and everything like that,” he says. “It’s fair, but at the same time, they (players) should probably be getting a little bit more.”

God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be, So He put His arms around you and He whispered "Come with Me". With tearful eyes we watched you, We watched you fade away, Although we loved you dearly, We could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, Hard-working hands at rest, God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best. It's lonesome here without you, we miss you more each day, Life doesn't seem the same since you have gone away. When days are sad and lonely and everything goes wrong, We seem to hear you whisper "Cheer Up and Carry On". Each time we see your picture, you seem to smile and say, "Don't cry, I'm in God's hands, we'll meet again someday!"

U of G buys one year before more cuts From Page 1

The university estimates it will have to reduce its budget by about $32 million over four years. A four-year plan launched in 2008 to eliminate the university’s “structural deficit” succeeded in doing this through budget cuts that saved $46 million. It even gave the university a bit of a financial cushion for the 2012-13 budget year, Mancuso said. It “created enough budget flexibility in the form of reserves that will be used to both avoid further cuts for one year and also make investments toward transforming our core teaching and support functions,” she told the Trib. However, she and U of G president Alastair Summerlee made it clear during a recent town hall meeting at the university – which is available as a podcast on the U of G website – that tough times lie ahead. “At the end of the day this is a choice between evils,” Summerlee says in the pod-

‘With no funding for basic cost increases in our grants, we have funding gaps every year. Over the past year we have built up a reserve, half of which we are planning to use to avoid cuts for one year’ Maureen Mancuso cast. He was referring to the hard choices the university will eventually have to face about what to cut. The university plans to consult broadly and plan for the cuts in an open, transparent manner, he says, and the process for doing so hasn’t yet been set. “We need a process to decide what we are going to stop doing” at the university. The U of G has to “change the way we do business, and we can’t do that

overnight,” Summerlee says. Hence the one-year lull in budget reductions, which he says will be followed by annual budget reductions of “something like two to five per cent a year.” Summerlee, who wasn’t available for further comment this week, says in the podcast that he’s expecting some people on campus to be upset by proposals to cut things they value highly. “We don’t want to do any of these things that are involved in

cutting,” he says in the podcast, which is titled “The Rumour Mill #16.” Asked by email why a new round of budget cuts is needed now that the U of G has eliminated its structural deficit, Mancuso linked this need to “relatively flat” provincial grant funding. “With no funding for basic cost increases in our grants, we have funding gaps every year. Over the past year we have built up a reserve, half of which we are

planning to use to avoid cuts for one year. “We do not have enough reserves beyond the one year. After that we will be facing the typical kind of funding gap, based on our current assumptions; i.e., costs increasing and relatively flat funding levels announced by the province,” she said. She said that the objective of setting new budget reduction targets is “to maintain a balanced structural budget. Current estimates are that this will require reductions of about $32 million over four years.” As part of its plans for the next few years, the U of G wants to hold its undergraduate population steady while increasing the ranks of graduate students on campus. “We are saying we want to hold total undergraduate enrolment steady at approximately 19,000,” Mancuso said in the email. “This will be a challenge, given both demographic

projections and increased competition. We do not have capacity to grow dramatically. And we have for the last several years been growing our graduate numbers in line with our desire to increase our research capacity.” The U of G now has about 2,300 graduate students, a number that has been increasing along with provincial government funding for more grad students, she said. But last week’s provincial budget didn’t contain as much funding as had been expected for more grad students over the next three years. “It had previously been projected that they would fund an additional 6,000 places, of which the University of Guelph's notional share would be 275 students over three years,” Mancuso said. However, “in the budget they announced a significant reduction of that number to 2,100 students over the three years,” she said.

Orchard project planting starts in May From Page 1

“In a nutshell, what we are envisioning is that these sites will empower other individuals and groups to plant similar orchards, so that edible fruits and nuts may one day make up a significant portion of the trees planted in this city,” said Bethany Klapwyk, one of the project’s organizers. Klapwyk is currently working on starting a small farm with her partner, and she has a particular interest in fruit and nut trees. Knowing her interest, a friend sent her some information about grant money available through Tree Canada. “It just evolved from that point,” said Klapwyk. She started to connect with various local organizations, including Transition Guelph, Backyard Bounty, Guelph Centre for Urban Organic Farming, The Patch Guild, Guelph Urban Forest Friends and the Guelph Community Garden Network. The grant application was done under Transition Guelph, and just last week the group learned that it had been awarded $3,000 from Tree Canada’s Edible Trees program. “It will just be a start,” said Klapwyk of the funding. “We’re hoping to do some fundraising events, too.” Luckily, the project already has two partners willing to provide land to plant the trees. Through the Community Garden Network, the group found Harcourt Memorial United Church and the Guelph Community Christian School. “They have a community garden there already, and they have a lot of greening initiatives on the go,

This image from the Guelph Community Orchard Project’s website shows some possible spots where trees might be planted on the Harcourt church property. The church is located in a residential neighbourhood on Dean Avenue, next to a well-travelled footpath, making it a good location for fruit trees to be enjoyed by community residents, said project organizer Bethany Klapwyk. The group plans to start planting at the church May 15, with more trees to go in at the Guelph Community Christian School in the fall.

so they were interested,” Klapwyk said of Harcourt. The Christian school is hoping to start a community garden at its new location at the former College Avenue Public School, so fruit trees would go well with this plan, she said. “They have more than two acres that could be planted on behind the school,” said Klapwyk. The two locations will fit in well with the projects four main goals:

nurturing relationships between residents, school and church groups, urban farmers and environmental organizations; fostering fruit and nut tree awareness through demonstration and education programs; increasing food security by providing donations to local food pantries; and making a positive difference to the local environment by planting trees. What exactly will be planted has not yet been determined.

“We put together a proposed tree list of things we know do well in the area,” said Klapwyk. “It’s going to be an organic orchard. That means we’re going to have to have a lot of different things.” There may be an opportunity to plant some interesting fruits that most people don’t know about, such as arctic kiwi or chum – a combination of cherry and plum, said Klapwyk.

“We’d want to have as many varieties as we can,” she said. The point is to show people that food does grow on trees. “This is not to go to waste and fall to the ground; this is to eat,” Klapwyk said. These days, people talk about “feeding the world,” but ornamental varieties of trees that have the edible qualities bred out are still being planted widely, she said. “We will incorporate a wide diversity of native and non-native edible trees in our plantings to demonstrate what can be grown in this climate, as well as trees and plants that offer other benefits. “In permaculture, a theory of ecological design, reference is made to ‘food, fuel, fiber, fodder, fertilizer, farmaceuticals, and fun’ – these are all concepts we are working with to help establish the orchard sites,” said Klapwyk. The project organizers plan to start planting at Harcourt in May and at the Christian school in the fall, and they are welcoming anyone who wants to share in the process to come out to a community design charette on April 14 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the church. The session will be a chance to hear about the project, tour the orchard site and share design ideas, said Klapwyk. It will be led by local landscape designer Bryan McPherson. The first tree planting is scheduled for May 15. Anyone who wants to get involved in the project is asked to email guelphcommunityorchard@gmail.com or visit guelphc o m m u n i t y o r chard.wordpress.com.
