Christian school has easily outbid three property developers for the former College Avenue school site, but the public school board has yet to declare a winner. Board officials aren’t Bob Moore saying at this point whether the Guelph Community Christian School’s bid of $3,105,000 is above the board’s reserve bid for the 10-acre school site. “We have no idea what it (the reserve bid) is and no idea whether we’ve met it,” or what would happen if the school’s bid is below the reserve bid, said Bob Moore, the school’s principal. The three bids from the property developers ranged from $1.52 million to $2.2 million. They “were low-balling to see what they could get,” Moore remarked in an interview after all the bids were opened publicly at the board office Tuesday afternoon. The Christian school, which has been at 286 Water St. for 46 years, has been talking with the Old University Neighbourhood Residents’ Association about what area residents want to see at the College Avenue site.

Shaw Festival book has Guelph roots Guelph Tribune
former University of Guelph professor has penned a new book commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Shaw Festival, and he couldn’t have done it without the archival collections that bear his name. “Without the archives the book would not have been possible to write,” said Leonard Conolly.

He is not tooting his own horn, but rather, just stating a fact. Conolly’s book, Shaw Festival The First Fifty Years, was released prior to the launch of the festival’s 50th season in May. Over the last couple of years, the former chair of Guelph’s drama department has spent countless hours digging through boxes in the L.W. Conolly Theatre Archives collecting material for the book. “It’s been fun,” he said in a tele-
phone interview from his home in Peterborough, where he is currently a professor in Trent University’s department of English literature. “It’s certainly been time consuming,” he added. As a scholar whose work has focused on the works of Shaw, as well as Canadian theatre history, Conolly was already active in Niagara-on-the-Lake’s famous festival before the idea for a commemorative book was first discussed about

three years ago. He had been acting as corresponding scholar to the festival, giving lectures and seminars at the festival and writing production histories for each play. “I’ve been heavily involved in the festival since the early 1980s,” he said. His love of George Bernard Shaw predates that considerably. “It goes back many years to when I first read Shaw as a high school student,” Conolly said. See Book on Page 20

â€œWe respect their desire to keep it as an institutional property, all 10 acres,â€? Moore stated. He said he also respects the neighbourhoodâ€™s desire to keep the school building as a â€œcommunity resourceâ€? that various groups can use, and to preserve the buildingâ€™s heritage aspects â€“ including the â€œbutterfly roofâ€? visible from College Avenue. â€œIt looks like the back end of a â€™59 Chevy,â€? Moore said, noting that 1959 is when College Avenue school was built. â€œThe spirit of the age dictated that things look like butterflies,â€? he observed. College Avenue school was designed by the modernist Guelph architect Richard Pagani, Moore said. He said the Old University Neighbourhood Residentsâ€™ Association has written to the school board in support of his schoolâ€™s bid to buy the site. The back five acres of the site were used as soccer fields by College Avenue school and by the community, and the Christian school has been talking with a few community groups interested in using the land for sports fields, he said. â€œThat would be our intention.â€? The Christian school would like to get a small piece of the 10-acre site, which juts out towards Lynwood Avenue, severed for development as the site of a large singlefamily home, Moore said. If its bid is accepted, the Christian school hopes to move there in September 2012 after spending a year doing renovations. Engineers have thoroughly examined the building, which closed as a Grade 7-8 school in June 2008, and found it to be in good structural shape, he said. â€œIt has good bones,â€? although it needs a new roof, a new heating and air conditioning system â€œand a lot of elbow grease.â€?
The Christian school has been talking with potential buyers of its site on Water Street, and it plans to finalize the sale if its College Avenue bid is accepted. The potential buyers are groups that would want to keep the siteâ€™s current institutional zoning for church or school use, Moore said. He wouldnâ€™t say what his school expects to spend on renovating the College Avenue school building if its bid is accepted, but he said the total purchase and renovation cost would be â€œconsiderably lowerâ€? than the $6.5 million he estimated it would cost to build a new 30,000sq.-ft. school on a five-acre site in the south end. Plus, he said, the Christian school would maintain a central location in the city by moving to College Avenue. The Christian school, which has just over 200 students in junior kindergarten to Grade 8, would have room to expand at College Avenue and would also get its own onsite gymnasium, space for specialized music, science and art classrooms, and a â€œhigher profileâ€? in the community than it has now, he said. The private school, which is a member of the Ontario Alliance of Christian Schools and is governed by a board made up of parents, charges $8,800 a year for the first child from a family, and $2,200 for each of the next two children from the same family. â€œThen we stop counting,â€? he noted with a smile, explaining that the fourth and fifth children from the same family would get in free. The school is currently so crowded that itâ€™s renting space in a church for classrooms, he said. It also rents gym space. Money that the Upper Grand board gets from the sale of College Avenue school would go into a reserve fund for buying other school sites.

Guelph Transit sports new look this fall G
uelph Transit is about to adopt its first-ever logo and tag line, as part of a growth strategy that will see the route structure for city buses revamped in the fall. â€œIt was an opportunity to do some branding,â€? said Michael Anders, the cityâ€™s general manager of community connectivity & transit. Guelph Transit hired an external design firm under a â€œsmall contractâ€? to come up with proposals for the logo and tag line, he said in an interview. City hall then narrowed the options down to three variations â€“ as seen to the left â€“ and it has been getting public input on the three variations. Itâ€™s had surveys filled
out at Stone Road Mall, at the farmersâ€™ market and at a recent Operations & Transit department open house. Online feedback has also been sought.
Guelph Transitâ€™s revamped routes go into effect in early November This week, as the public input process wraps up, people are being approached in St. Georgeâ€™s Square to see which variation they prefer. A choice will be made soon at city hall, but â€œthe public wonâ€™t officially see it until Novemberâ€? when
bus routes are revamped, Anders said. The logo and tag line will show up on Guelph Transit vehicles, maps, schedules and communications material, and they will probably have other applications as well, he said. The tag line â€œOn Your Way,â€? he said, can be used in different ways to promote transit use â€“ as in using the bus â€œon your wayâ€? to work, to the university, to the mall and so on. The new branding for Guelph Transit is to generate interest â€œand really put the service out at the forefront,â€? he said. Guelph Transit hasnâ€™t had its own logo and tag line in the past, and there hasnâ€™t been a lot of branding done in the transit industry, but thatâ€™s changing,
Anders said. A current trend towards it includes Mississauga Transitâ€™s rebranding itself as MiWay â€“ with the â€œMiâ€? a play on the word â€œMississauga,â€? he said. It also includes Brampton Transitâ€™s ZĂźm (pronounced â€œzoomâ€?) initiative for Bus Rapid Transit services along certain key corridors. Guelph Transitâ€™s revamped route structure is to go into effect in early November when city buses move their transfer point from St. Georgeâ€™s Square to the cityâ€™s new transportation centre on Carden Street near the train station. A few weeks later, GO Trains will be added to the transportation mix there.

Pair of events help Relay for Life teams Some of the teams registered for this year’s local Relay for Life, which takes place June 10 to 11 at Guelph Lake Conservation Area, have special events planned to help bring in more money for the Canadian Cancer Society. A team from Guelph Collegiate, the GCVI Cancer Avengers, took part in the relay for the first time last year. They have signed up again in honour of retired geography teacher John Menzo, who died of cancer late last summer. Their fundraising projects so far have included bake sales, a photograph sale, a raffle and sales of paper daffodils as part of the Cancer Society’s Hope Blooms campaign. On June 3, they will hold a fundraising carnival featuring a hotdog lunch, bake sale

The grand finale of this year’s carnival will be the “Hope Photo” scheduled for noon, when hundreds of students will spell out the word H O P E and the Guelph Fire Department will photograph the event from above. Another relay team is holding a community yard sale on Saturday June 4 at 8 a.m. at 41 and 44 Sherwood Dr. in order to help the team reach its fundraising goal of $10,000. The team is led by Doug Wilkinson and is named “Team Laura” in honour of his late wife. Last year, Team Laura raised more than $19,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society.

In search of shade
This small raccoon, who appeared to be suffering from the heat Tuesday afternoon, attracted attention from a number of passersby on Macdonell Street, who were worried about the animal’s well-being. Witnesses said the critter had climbed the tree on the busy downtown street at around 7 a.m., before the day reached its peak temperature. They worried the tree was not shady or cool enough for the animal, who was too timid to come down and find relief. Witnesses said the humane society was called, but did not respond as the racoon was not bothering anyone. Several people threw water at the animal to provide hydration and heat relief.

School plan works well T
he Guelph Community Christian School seems to have made an impressive offer, in more ways than one, for the former College Avenue school property. First off, its $3.1-million offer for the 10-acre site is so far ahead of the next-highest offer of $2.2 million as to be almost laughable. Assuming it’s above College the reserve bid, it means lots of Avenue moola flowing into a board fund used for buying school sites. school For another thing, the Christian school is willing to preserve the heritage features of the old school, notably the “butterfly Site plans roof.” The prospect of having to offer smooth preserve heritage aspects was one of the objections raised by transition Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health last year when city hall was pushing for the health unit to relocate there. The Christian school’s proposal also appears to satisfy other desires of the Old University Neighbourhood Residents’ Association, which wants to see the big site continue to be used for institutional purposes and the school continue to be available as a community resource. The school had six of its officials, including principal Bob Moore, at Tuesday’s public opening of the four bids received by the board for the property. They made up a big proportion of the 20 people, including Upper Grand school board staff and trustees, who turned out for the bid opening. They appear to really want the property, and they appear to have the support of area residents. Hopefully, it’s now just a matter of finalizing an agreement with smooth sailing to follow so the 50-year-old Christian school can make its big move to College Avenue.
Suite offering in city It was interesting to note as the River Run Centre unveiled its 2011-12 season this week that the centre will be getting a tie-in with a couple of other city facilities over the next couple of years. The “RBC Royal Suite” is a new cultural initiative that will incorporate not only the River Run, but also the new civic square being built in front of city hall and the new Guelph Civic Museum being built in the Loretto convent. It’s a result of the broader focus of Colleen Clack, who since the winter has had more than running the River Run on her plate in her new role as the city’s general manager of arts, culture and entertainment. Let’s hope for lots more of these welcome initiatives.

Speed Skating Rink The former Speed Skating Rink on Woolwich Street was supposed to be incorporated into what is now known as the River Run Centre. However, a fire in 1991 destroyed those plans. River Run Centre opened in 1997 and cost $14.2 million. The rink facade was rebuilt and placed in front of the centre in what is called John Galt Park. TOP PHOTO COURTESY OF MARTIN BOSCH

Letters to THE TRIBUNE
Cyclist not leading by example I
just had to write. I am a cyclist who tries to follow all the rules of the road. I am very disappointed with a grey-haired man who looks like he is in his 50s. I’ve seen him more than once riding his bike south on the left sidewalk of the Gordon Street bridge with more than 10 teenagers following him on bikes. Anyone who may want to walk on the sidewalk would not be able to. I am off my bike waiting for the green light so that I can
cross from the west side of Gordon to the east side. This man does not get off his bike to cross, and neither do the teenagers. I am very disappointed, because I expect older people to teach the younger ones about the rules of safe cycling. We all need to set a good example for the younger ones so that cyclists and drivers can be more safe in this city. Mary W. Schnurr Guelph

Bad biking memories in photo T
he picture of the cyclists on the front page of the May 31 Tribune reminds me of the many times my wife and I cycled to the library from the senior centre area on Woolwich Street. Nothing has changed. It is still a nice place to get doored or be cut off by cars that pass a left-turning car by driving across the bike lane, cutting off bicyclists. That stretch of Woolwich don’t need a free parking lane, as most businesses and private homes have off-street parking, but it could
benefit from a centre left-turn lane. At one time I counted 16 cars waiting because one in front wants to turn left. Between McTague and Extra streets, there are always cars parked from before eight in the morning to after six in the afternoon. There is an empty lot between London and Edwin street that could be used as a small parking lot for aforementioned group. Hans Schepers Guelph
Don’t change downtown skyline I
’m biased. I live downtown. I enjoy the skyscape, the landscape and the architecture. I understand the need for increasing population density. However, I do not support dramatically changing the heart of downtown Guelph. Increasing density will have its economic value, but only if done in a way that does not significantly detract from the downtown environment. Skyscrapers aren’t friendly. Sensitivity to
the essential soul of the city and its inestimable value in both economic and cultural terms is crucial to the success of any diversions from the Official Plan. It’s not one or the other. It’s a balance. Preserving the centre supports the success of the outer. I’ve seen towns where the downtown was dead. It ain’t pretty! Tony Darmon Guelph

Walking to school the way to go
iving in Pabos, Gaspé, in the 1950s, as a 12-year-old I walked three miles to school every day. There were no sidewalks. In the winter the roads were not plowed. My younger siblings also walked, and we had a better attendance record than the kids who lived much closer to the school. We walked a stretch of at least one mile between the Bay of Chaleur and the railway track on one side and the river on the other. This area was completely open, with no
Save in any
houses on either side. At times, in the winter, the temperature was between minus 32 and 40. It would not hurt the children in Guelph to walk from King George to Waverley Drive school. The Ministry of Education should stop busing the French Immersion students from King George to Edward Johnson school. Walking is a very good exercise. Norma Flemming Guelph

think Leanne Piper is onto something. The Ward 5 councillor recently voted against the demolition of a home on Crestwood Place. The house itself is not particularly significant from a cultural, historical or architectural perspective. There’s a tire hanging from a branch of one of two mature trees on the front lawn. This shows the Alan place could have significance from a family hisPICKERSGILL torical perspective. But not enough to keep it standing, obviously. There are about a dozen homes on fairly large lots along both sides of this cul-desac. Most are big. The one that’s coming down is probably the smallest. Piper didn’t vote against demolition because she wants to protect the structure. Or even defend the character of the neighbourhood. A bigger house will be more in keeping with the prevailing mix on Crestwood Place. What Piper wants is a regulation that all demolition debris must be recycled. When the older residential neighbourhoods were developed, building lots were bigger than today. People wanted large yards. Tidy little bungalows were built in the middle of an expansive lawn. Nowadays, expansive lawns are out of style. They require too much water and it is a full day’s work keeping the dandelions at bay, especially now that we can’t drown them in cancer-causing pesticides. So we are faced with a choice. We can either dig up the lawn and plant perennials, or we can knock down the house and build one that takes up more of the yard. In our neighbourhood, a lot of people are doing the former. Those with money to spare are doing the latter. It is a bit ostentatious, but what’s the matter with that? There’s a house on Stuart Street that’s big enough to hold the new main library. If people want to sink their wealth into a house that screams out a statement, that’s their business. It becomes our business when the old house is packed into a disposal bin and dropped off at a landfill site somewhere. This has happened too many times. I remember leaving for work a few years ago. A bungalow down the street was still standing where it always did. When I came home at night it was gone. It had been bulldozed and removed. The house was of an age where most floors were old-fashioned hardwood. Lots of good red brick walls. Copper pipes in the plumbing. Copper wires. Lots of material could have been reclaimed. Lots could have been reused or recycled. My guess is that none of it was. There is never such a big rush to replace one house with another that we can’t take the extra time to do it right. It is going to be expensive anyway, so sink a few thousand more into the mortgage to cover the cost of separating the debris into manageable piles. If you want a bigger home but can’t afford the price of pretentious social responsibility, drop back a level or two. Sink whatever you can afford into boxwood bushes, geraniums and an addition to the back of the house. Most of us are reaching an understanding that we can’t keep throwing stuff away. We don’t just pack our old quadraphonic eight-track stereo into a clear bag and haul it to the curb on garbage day. It has to be disposed of responsibly. Why should a house be any different? The problem is huge. A Massachusetts government website estimates that construction and demolition debris accounts for 25 per cent of solid waste. If we can regulate what happens to disposable diapers, surely we should do the same for disposable houses.

Drive to stock local food pantries
A week-long food drive to help stock neighbourhood food pantries for the summer is now underway in Guelph. The second annual Guelph Community Food Drive runs until June 5, with local community and church groups collecting donations in neighbourhoods around the city. “Instead of each community group running their own little drive, the groups are collaborating through the Guelph Wellington Food Round Table to promote a citywide drive. It maximizes our efforts so everyone benefits,” said the Salvation Army’s Beverleigh Broughton in a news
release. The food drive’s list of most-needed items includes canned vegetables, fruit and meat, pasta, rice, tomato sauce, cereal, soup, peanut butter, crackers, juice, soap, diapers, feminine products, shampoo, and toothpaste, it said. Drop-off locations, open Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. are: St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, 161 Norfolk St. Parkwood Gardens Community Church, 501 Whitelaw Rd. Calvary Baptist Church, 454 Arkell Rd.
Looking for more? Visit the newsroom at guelph.ca
Crestwicke Baptist Church, 400 Speedvale Ave. E. Magic/CJOY, 75 Speedvale Ave. E. “Traditionally, the neighbourhood food pantries run low over the summer months,” Broughton said in the release. “This is an important food drive for us, because all the food collected stays in the community and it has to be enough to keep those pantries stocked until the fall.” Donations will also be collected at a barbecue and free concert sponsored by Epicentre on June 4 at 5 p.m. at Riverside Park’s bandshell.

OPEN HOUSE NOTICE York Trunk Sanitary Sewer and Paisley-Clythe Drinking Water Feedermain Class Environmental Assessment The Study
Provide your comments
The City of Guelph has initiated a Class Environmental Assessment study for improvements to the York Trunk Sanitary Sewer and a new drinking water feedermain for the Paisley and Clythe Reservoirs. The Guelph Water and Wastewater Servicing Master Plan (2009) identified the need for these improvements in order to service planned growth in the City.
You are encouraged to attend the open house and provide your comments which will be considered in finalizing the preferred solutions. Comments and information regarding this project will be collected in accordance with the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act for the purpose of meeting environmental assessment requirements. With the exception of personal information, all comments will become part of the public record.
Second Public Open House Wednesday, June 8 6–8 p.m. Committee Room 112, City Hall, 1 Carden Street
For more information
The open house will provide background information on the study, evaluation of various alternatives, and the recommended sewer and feedermain alignments and mitigation measures. Representatives from the City and its consultant will be present to answer questions and discuss the next steps in the project.

About the study The current York Trunk Sanitary Sewer extends from the former Guelph Reformatory Lands to the Wastewater Treatment Plant west of the Hanlon Expressway along the Eramosa and Speed Rivers. This sewer is reaching the end of its useful life and capacity due to a combination of planned population and employment growth in the City and reports of poor condition in sections. A solution is required to replace and/or rehabilitate critical sections of this main trunk sewer.
Please contact either of the following project team members if you have any questions or comments, wish to obtain more information regarding the project or would like to be added to the project mailing list.

The Paisley-Clythe Drinking Water Feedermain is a new watermain required to increase the reliability of the supply between the City’s F.M. Woods Reservoir and Pumping Station and the Paisley and Clythe Reservoirs located at the west and east ends of the city. As part of the York Trunk Sanitary Sewer and Paisley-Clythe Drinking Water Feedermain Class Environmental Assessment, the City has: • completed an assessment of existing infrastructure and the environment; • identified the opportunity/problem and alternative solutions; • determined the capacity requirements to service existing residents and future growth; • completed an evaluation of alternatives for routing, construction methods and mitigation measures; and • identified preliminary recommended alternatives to meet the project objectives for both the sewer and feedermain.
The Process This study is being planned under Schedule B of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process (Municipal Engineers Association, October 2000 as amended in 2007) under Ontario’s Environmental Assessment Act. The Class Environmental Assessment process includes public and review agency consultation, an evaluation of alternatives, an assessment of the potential environmental effects of the proposed improvements, and identification of reasonable measures to mitigate any adverse impacts that may result.

prices or service guarantees that they really can’t live up to because they priced the sale too low,” James said. Don’t expect the hard sell when James comes calling. “Windows and doors are a major investment in your home,” he says. “You shouldn’t have to make a decision on the spot because the salesman says the price will go up tomorrow.” Budget Win-Door offers only the best products and service – built for style and built to last – because the manufacturer which offers a lifetime warranty has been around for more than 30 years. That means there is true meaning to getting after-sales service from Budget Win-Door LTD. “We’ll be here in five, or even 10 years from now if there is a problem that needs to be addressed,” he said. And all windows and doors in addition to a lifetime warranty come with Energy Star approval. That’s important for the budget conscious. The Energy Star seal of approval is your best bet to long-term utility savings. In this age of energy awareness and concern over rising utility prices, windows are the single most important part of the home in controlling family budgets for homes more than 10 years old, he said. “As much as 25 per cent of energy loss is caused by windows that are not fitted properly, constructed of wood that has been weathered or rotted, or windows that were originally single glazed. The benefits of installing replacement windows and doors are far greater than just energy savings, James said. “The greatest benefit is comfort,” he said. “Not only will you enjoy greater warmth, but
outside noise will be reduced and with present building materials, you’ll be healthier, too, by reducing condensation, moisture and the growth of mold and mildew.” And an added plus is that all windows are constructed in vinyl, which means little or no lifetime maintenance, scrapping or painting. There’s a 15-year exterior colour guarantee so you’ll be assure the colour won’t fade. Budget Win-Door can provide all your needs by offering triple glazed windows that range from traditional double hung to a variety of styles like casement, bay or bow windows, garden windows, steel and fiberglass doors, patio doors, storm doors and more… “The Energy Star seal helps us all save money on utility bills and to protect the environment at the same time through the use of energy-efficient products and practices,” James said. For those homeowners wanting a unique or elegant look to their homes, call James for a FREE in-home estimate and see for yourself why so many satisfied homeowners will recommend him for all the windows and doors needs.

Decoration Day events on Sunday T
he local Legion will honour veterans of all wars and conflicts at its annual “Community Decoration Day” events June 5 at Marymount Cemetery and Woodlawn Memorial Park. Legion and community members have participated in the Decoration Day tradition, which involves decorating the graves of soldiers, for around 15 years, a news release said. The practice started in Guelph as part of Legion Week celebrations in September, but for the past four years the event has been held on the closest Sunday to the anniversary of D-Day, June 6, it said. Volunteers and cemetery staff assist with the decoration by placing small Canadian flags on the graves of veterans, it said. The events will also include a remembrance service and the reading of an “honour roll” of the names of Legion members and Ladies Auxiliary members who have died during the last year. The Marymount ceremony will take place at 1:30 p.m., with the Woodlawn Memorial Park ceremony following at 3 p.m.

Book on the Shaw Festival a labour of love From Page 1
he Irish-born playwright’s work attracted Conolly with its combination of the emotional and the intellectual, he said. “It’s a total experience of the emotions and the mind being challenged,” he said. He first went to the Shaw Festival on trips to Ontario while he was living and working outside of the province, but it wasn’t until he came to the University of Guelph in 1981 that he began to attend the festival more regularly. Conolly was part of the book discussions from the
The book is a 90,000-word, 320-page illustrated history of the festival from its genesis
beginning about three years ago. “There was a sense that yes, there should be a publication of some kind,” he said. “I suggested that there should be a full history of
the festival.” The resulting book is a 90,000-word, 320-page illustrated history of the festival from its genesis, he said. “The focus is on the productions that have been
mounted over those 50 years,” said Conolly. But, with some 400 productions playing out in that time, he admits he had to pick and choose to give readers a sense of what the festival has done on the stage. The book also covers behind-the-scenes aspects of the festival. “I also wanted to give some sense of the contextual issues,” he explained. For example, the festival’s finances, ticket sales, fundraising and government funding are included. He also covers the political con-
text of the festival and its relationship to the community of Niagara-on-the-Lake. The festival now sells a quarter of a million tickets annually, which brings significant tourist traffic to the small town, so it hasn’t been without its controversy, he explained. “Most people in the community think it’s for the better,” he said. All that information was collected through the archives, which contain everything from playbills to directors’ notes, from scripts to press clippings, including not just reviews but news
articles too, he said. “Those are all in the archives.” He hopes the book, assembled like a jigsaw puzzle from the bits and pieces in the collections, will bring back fond memories for people who have been to Shaw shows, but will also be a lure to people who’ve never been. “I’d like to think that people who know the festival well will read the book and say, ‘that’s terrific to be reminded of that show,’ and those people who don’t know the festival will say, ‘I wish I were there,’ ” he said.
Archives a treasure trove of theatrical history S
ince 1969, the University of Guelph’s library has assembled theatre collections in its archives, but it wasn’t until 1983 when the archives of the Shaw Festival were acquired that the collections really began to take shape. Leonard Conolly, then chair of the university’s drama department, was
instrumental in that acquisition. “I knew that the festival, like many other theatres, was having trouble storing their materials,” he said, explaining that “space is at a premium.” Conolly was concerned that for lack of space, historical documents would be purged, so he took steps
to have the items donated in 1983 to the archives at the University of Guelph. “The impetus as a theatre historian was to save, protect and make accessible the history of the festival,” he said. The considerable acquisition established a dual focus for the archives – the work of Shaw and modern Ontario theatre.
“New collections are added all the time, but the Shaw collection was one of the first,” said Conolly. It also continues to grow, as does the rest of U of G’s Ontario theatre archives, which are now considered unrivaled. “I still work closely with the archives in identifying possible acquisitions,” said Conolly.
“Guelph has one of the best collections anywhere, and I do my best to keep it up.” In honour of his work in building those collections, they were named the L.W. Conolly Theatre Archives in 1999. Their contents can be searched from anywhere in the world through the library’s online catalogue,
but in order to get a look at the material, researchers must come to Guelph. This is exactly what Conolly did to create his recently published history of the Shaw Festival, for which the archives were an invaluable resource. “It gives me a reason for returning to Guelph,” he said.
River Run unveils lineup for next season BY JESSICA LOVELL Guelph Tribune
he River Run Centre’s Co-operators Hall was filled with anticipation on Tuesday afternoon as a crowd of patrons, volunteers, donors and sponsors waited to hear about the artists and shows lined up for the centre’s 2011-12 season. From children’s theatre and concerts to ballet and opera, and from standup comedy to a diversity of musical performances, the lineup was revealed bit by bit by the city arts official Colleen Clack and the River Run’s supervisor of development and communications, Ella Pauls. Mayor Karen Farbridge, who spoke at the close of the launch event, summed up the vast diversity of the lineup, saying “there really is something great for everyone coming up.” The audience was treated to a preview of the season’s offerings in the form of interlude performances by the trumpet and bassoon duo of Guy Few and Nadina Mackie Jackson. The duo, who first played at the River Run as part of the Linamar for the Performing Arts Series for elementary schools, said they can’t wait to come back. This time they will play for the general public as part of the Meridian Studio Series, which also includes the dramatic productions Goodness, an exploration of genocide from Volcano Theatre, and I, Claudia, a humorous coming-of-
age story from Crow’s Theatre. For Jazz fans, the lineup features internationally renowned soloist Holly Cole and the Junonominated Emilie-Claire Barlow, among others. The range of folk music
includes Men of the Deeps, Canada’s only coal miners’ choir, and a holiday performance including music and step-dancing by the Leahy Family. Other big names in music include Juno Award-winning
New program includes two other city facilities A
s part of the launch of the River Run Centre’s 2011-12 season, the city also announced a new program that will put the spotlight on a couple of other city facilities. The RBC Royal Suite is a new cultural initiative that will incorporate not only the River Run Centre, but also the city’s new civic square and the new Guelph Civic Museum. “Our goal is to animate our various public spaces with cultural activities that have broad appeal and that are inclusive and accessible,” the city’s general manager of arts, culture and entertainment, Colleen Clack, told the crowd during a launch event at the River Run Centre on Tuesday afternoon. The initiative includes three different programs that will be rolled out over the next three years, beginning with the RBC Classical Arts and Dance Series – part of the lineup for the River
Run Centre’s 2011-12 season. The five-show performance program is designed to bring large-scale national and international productions of dance, opera and music to the River Run’s main stage, a news release said. The next component of the initiative, expected to start in 2012, is the RBC Market Day Skates. This program will feature a community skate from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Saturday in December. The activity will be accompanied by free hot chocolate and live entertainment, Clack said. The third part of the initiative will be an expansion of the Guelph Civic Museum’s family heritage activities. The RBC Family Heritage Day program, to be held at the museum’s new location, will offer an enhanced program of indoor and outdoor activities, a news release said. It will roll out in 2013.
singer-songwriter Ron Sexsmith and former Barenaked Ladies frontman Steven Page, who will give a solo performance. For fans of comedy, the River Run’s Comedy Series will include a variety of standup, sketch and musical comedians, including 2008 Best Comic in Canada award winner Gerry Dee, musical comedy trio the Arrogant Worms, a new Second City show and the return of the Just for Laughs Road Show. “The interesting thing about this show is we won’t know until a month before who they’re sending,” said Clack. The Just for Laughs show’s lineup is selected from the best performers at the festival, so in spite of the uncertainty it promises to be a good show and is always a popular one for the River Run, said Clack. For fans of more traditional performance styles, the RBC Classical Arts and Dance Series will introduce opera to the River Run’s lineup for the first time. “I was searching for the opportunity to enhance our program with some large-scale productions,” said Clack, describing the new series in a news release. It will include two Mozart operas, The Magic Flute and Don Giovanni, both performed by Opera Kitchener. The series will also include a performance by Ballet Jörgen Canada and Spanish dance from Esmeralda Enrique Spanish Dance Company. And of course, there are a vari-

Guelph guy goes for Cup
Oh so close
BY NED BEKAVAC Guelph Tribune
lation turned into deflation on Monday for a St. James Lions team that was on the verge of a history-making soccer victory. “It kind of sucks,” said the Lions’ Stefano Zicarelli, while fighting tears after a tough loss. St. James has never been to the provincial (OFSAA) boys championship and a win in the CWOSSA AAA finals against the Southwood Sabres of Cambridge Monday would have got them there. And when Zicarelli sparked jubilant celebrations by putting the Lions up 1-0 early in the game, it looked like the OFSAA dream might become a reality. But Southwood would battle back to claw out a 2-1 extra-time victory in a win that left the Lions crestfallen. “We could have won it. We had a couple of good opportunities,” said Zicarelli. St. James’s speedy strikers gave Southwood’s big back line fits early in the game. Just two minutes in, Emilio Pivato danced his way into the box and fed Zicarelli a ball that Zicarelli tucked into the corner of the net. The Lions had three superb scoring chances in the game’s first 10 minutes, but scored just the one goal and they would go on to rue the missed opportunities. In the 20th minute, Southwood finally found their legs. Three minutes from halftime, they tied the game 1-1. Southwood had more of the ball possession in a rather sluggish second half on a hot afternoon on the steamy artificial surface of the University of Guelph’s Varsity Field, but couldn’t find the go-ahead goal. The teams traded chances in extra time and when St. James goalie Nick Sacchetti made a flying feet-first save off Southwood’s Aaron Thompson near the end of the first half of extra time, the game seemed destined for penalty kicks.

Emilio Pivato, right, of the St. James Lions, buries his head in his jersey as the Southwood Sabres celebrate a dramatic 2-1 victory on Monday afternoon.
But it didn’t take long for Thompson to get revenge. With seven minutes left in the second extra time half, he scored the goal that propelled the visitors to the CWOSSA title. At the game’s final whistle, the Sabres celebrated wildly while many Lions battled tears. Ten minutes later, though, the Lions picked themselves up, looked at the big picture, and gathered for one last huddle and “Lions!” shout, in unison “Our team went through ups and downs. And the fact that we got to the finals is just amazing,” said
Zicarelli. Guelph schools are said to be at a disadvantage when it comes to CWOSSA because they play their season in the fall, whereas teams from other towns are in form because they play in the spring. Zicarelli credited Southwood and wouldn’t say that as a reason for a loss. “They’re a good team,” he said. Earlier CWOSSA AAA games took place in swamp-like field conditions last week in Owen Sound. The championship game was postponed and moved to Guelph on Monday.

A group that wants to build Ontario’s largest communityfinanced solar park on a Gordon Street property in the south end will hold information sessions at First Baptist Church on June 9 and 23. People wanting to attend should register by visiting www.hallspondsolar.org or calling 1-877-880-6961, a news release said. The project, unveiled last week, is being organized by a group called Options for Green Energy. It’s seeking investors to develop a 7.5-megawatt solar energy farm that would feed electricity into the provincial grid.
Walk a success Walkers raised more than $5,000 for schizophrenia research in this year’s Walk of Hope. The event, held annually by the local chapter of the Schizophrenia Society, took place May 29, and was well attended, a new release said. People may have seen the walkers as they made their way from the Evergreen Seniors Centre down Woolwich Street. This year’s event was dedicated to the founding members of the local branch of the Schizophrenia Society, which evolved from a support group formed in 1981, the release said. Schizophrenia is a psychotic disorder that usually strikes in the late-teen or early-adult years, it said. Improved medications have greatly improved the outcome for those suffering from the illness. Receiving help early has also enhanced results, the release said. The Schizophrenia Society provides education and support programs in the community. The annual walk helps to raise awareness and funds for these programs, and, in addition to the walk, the society holds an annual golf tournament in September. This year’s “Holes Fore Hope” tournament will be held Sept. 18 at Victoria Park Golf Club West. For more information, visit www.schizophrenia.on.ca or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
