FABTASTIC: Six-year-old Abbey Velestuk of St. Thomas gets her face painted by Isabelle Nethercott at the St. Thomas Horton Farmers Market Aug. 3. The Farmers Market, located on Manitoba St., includes produce, as well as the work of artisans and crafters.

It’s good for what “ale’s� you. Railway City Brewing has announced that an India Pale Ale (IPA), brewed by Ryan Harrison from St.Thomas, is the winner of this year’s Platform 13 Home Brew competition. The annual summer contest is a search for the summer’s best beer, where a team of judges review and rate each beer according to their balance, quality and overall enjoyability. Entries for this year’s competition came from across Ontario. Many came from the London region, while others came from Windsor/Kingsville, Sarnia, and some as far away as Ottawa. Styles ranged from simple ales, lagers and wheats, to dark stouts and porters. For his winning entry, Ryan will receive a cash prize and the opportunity to brew alongside Railway City brewers. The full size brew should be available to both retail customers, along with local bars and restaurants, early September. The label design will feature the signature of the home brewer and the Railway City Brewing team. See BREW, Page 2

When Becca Kohler of St. Thomas thinks about the future, she knows it will be ďŹ lled with hockey. And it seems Hockey Canada agrees with her, since they’ve invited Becca, along with 39 other young players from across the country, to Canada’s National Women’s De-

velopment Team selection camp, taking place Aug. 10-18. The camp will be at the Markin MacPhail Centre, Hockey Canada’s home arena at Canada Olympic Park in Calgary. Becca, 18-years-old, was chosen along with 17 other players from

Ontario. Invitees were also chosen from Quebec, Manitoba, British Columbia, Nova Scotia, Saskatchewan, Alberta and Prince Edward Island. â–ź

A sister and brother from Port Stanley are making the hospital better, one bottle at a time. Micky and Joe Schroeder donated $1,008 to the St. Thomas-Elgin General Hospital (STEGH) Foundation Aug. 1, which the two raised through a bottle drive they organized. Micky also works in the human resources department of the hospital. This is the ďŹ fth year the two have held the bottle drive, which seems to be picking up momentum. This year’s collection totaled 8,861 bottles, compared to last year’s total of 5,132. “It just keeps growing,â€? said Micky, citing word of mouth as the primary driving force behind the annual bottle drive. “It’s gotten to the point, after the last few years, the neighbours are looking forward to it and asking ‘when does it start?’â€? added Joe. “It’s for the community. I like to help out as much as I can.â€?

This is the fifth year the two have organized the bottle drive, which was put together because of the Today I’m Working For My Hospital campaign, which the hospital is running. From June 1 to Aug. 31, people are invited to organize their own fundraising projects, and the STEGH Foundation will provide posters, badges and other promotional material. This year, Today I’m Working for My Hospital has a goal of raising $10,000 toward the $90,000 purchase of 15 Patient Controlled Analgesic Pumps, which are

used primarily for Orthopedic surgeries such as hip and knee replacements. With these pumps, patients may self-administer pain medication. A computer keeps track of the amount of doses over a time-frame, so patients can’t overdose. On hand to accept the donation from the Schroeder siblings was Paul Jenkins, the new Executive Director at the STEGH Foundation. Jenkins began work in his new role July 29. “It’s absolutely tremendous to have support from inside the hospital, those who see the work that needs to be done are willing to actually donate,” said Jenkins. “It makes coming into work, for us, that much better”

“I never liked beer growing up, but one day I tried craft beer and fell in love, then I decided to try and brew my own,” said Ryan. “I find IPA’s on the market too dry, which lead me to malt it up. Commercial IPA’s are more bitter than hop.” Last year, the winning beer was brewed featuring locally grown beets and honey. Ryan’s IPA was chosen this year for its

overall flavour balance, enjoyability and because all the judges could see themselves drinking more of it, according to Paul Corriveau, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, in an official release. Second place went to a Vanilla Stout, brewed by Ryan Armstrong and Dennis Muzujlo from London. Third place went to a Mango Saison, brewed by John Jenkinson & Reuven Brandt from London.

“It’s always a big hurdle to get invited to the summer camp ... I was really excited I had the opportunity to actually go and be on the ice,” said Becca. Becca is one of 13 players on the selection camp roster who won gold with Canada’s National Women’s Under-18 Team at the 2012 IIHF Ice Hockey U18 Women’s World Championship in Zlin, Czech Republic. “It was probably one of the most important games I’ve ever played,” said Becca, thinking back to the world championship game. Becca and Team Canada defeated Team USA in the Czech Republic to win gold that year. In that game, Canada got a 3-0 lead in the first period, with Becca assisting on the game-winning goal. The invitees to the selection camp include four goalies, 12 defencemen and 24 forwards. Invitations

are based on evaluations by Hockey Canada scouts during the 2012-13 season, including past performances within Canada’s National Women’s Program, their club and school teams, and at provincial and national championships with Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). “I’m a tall girl, so I like to think of myself as a power forward,” said Becca. Becca is currently in training six days a week, three of them in London with Kari Schneider, the designated Strength Coach for any female Hockey Canada Athletes in the London Region. The 40 players attending the selection camp will be split into two teams, which will participate in several practices and intrasquad games, as well as off-ice dryland training, fitness testing and high performance classroom sessions. Based on evalu-

ations and performances at Canada’s National Women’s Development Team selection camp, Hockey Canada will choose 13 development team players to join the 27 senior team players who will centralize with Canada’s National Women’s Team in Calgary for training to prepare for the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. The 40 players will be split into Red and White teams, which will compete against each other in a three-game series set for Aug. 19-24 at the Markin MacPhail Centre. Becca first started learning how to skate when she was four years old. Becca has a brother, Thomas, who is one year older than her and started playing hockey first. The two played hockey together while they were growing up and Becca became more serious about the game as she got older. She says the thing she loves most about hockey are the friendships she’s made.

Children with autism have a high tendency to bolt and an impaired concept of danger. Certified dogs for autism are tethered to the child and trained to take commands from the parent. When the child goes to run, the dogs are given a “halt” command, anchoring the child from going any further than the tether allows.

In 1812, war was being waged on the Great Lakes, and this month you can learn all about it. Cris Kohl and Joan Forsberg, a husbandand-wife team of maritime historians and underwater archaeologists will bring their dramatic presentation, The War of 1812 on the Great Lakes to the Port Stanley Library on Aug. 16. The overview overview features all major actions such as the Battle of Lake Erie, and the attacks on York and Kingston as well as examining the numerous types of vessels that were involved in the war on the lakes. The timing of their presentation couldn’t be better, as the Battle of Lake Erie will mark its 200th anniversary this year. The Battle of Lake Erie, sometimes called the Battle of Put-in-Bay, was fought on Sept. 10, 1813, in Lake Erie off the coast of Ohio. Nine vessels of the United States Navy defeated and captured six vessels of British Royal Navy. That battle was a key loss for the British, forcing them to give up Detroit and retreat

to Burlington Heights, leaving this area open to attack for the rest of the war. The presentation will also include information on 1812 vessels that were lost during the war and became famous shipwrecks or well-preserved underwater survivors such as the Hamilton and Scourge. Both Cris and Joan have studied and written on hundreds of Great Lakes shipwrecks. They are the authors of over a dozen books and hundreds of articles, including The Great Lakes Diving Guide, Joan has a degree in History and Cris, a prize-winning underwater photographer, has a Master’s Degree in History They have produced 13 different DVDs on shipwrecks and underwater archaeology including the 57-minute The War of 1812 on the Great Lakes. They will have a number of their books, DVDs, and shipwreck posters available for sale at the presentation.

Search for a mushroom picker THE VIEW FROM HERE Terry Carroll

T

his summer, my lovely wife Nancy and I drove through Hythe, Alberta (population 820), a hamlet that calls itself the “Volunteer Capital of Alberta.” I couldn’t help but think that Elgin and St. Thomas are right up there with some of these great volunteer capitals, even if we are a little quieter about the accomplishment. It also comes as no surprise that some of those terrific western volunteers are transplanted easterners from this area. One is my brother, Keith. While we were visiting him and his family in the Peace River Country near Dawson Creek, B.C., he took some vacation days away from his job with Forestry Service. Keith’s version of vacation is to work for a few weeks inspecting fields of pedigreed (or certified) seed, as well as getting caught up on some things around his 160-acre farm. He also volunteers with the local fire department (2013 Fireman of the Year!) and with a Search and Rescue squad. It was in this latter role that he took a call at 4:30 on the Thursday morning while we were there. A mushroom picker had gone missing earlier that week. British Columbia is home to an enormous variety of people – hippies and old draft dodgers around Nelson, ranchers in the interior, unionized dock workers on the coast, counter-culture types on the islands, oil and gas workers (rig pigs, as they used to be called) everywhere. Mushroom pickers fit somewhere in that mosaic. Loners, margin-

ally employed or iconoclasts with cornrowed hair, they prefer to pick in burned-out areas or where trees are down. That’s where mushrooms grow well and are easier to find. The missing man was 61 years old. The mushroom pickers had looked for him first, then Mounties, people in search planes and Fort St. John Search and Rescue volunteers (before they were played out). Keith set off in a van with five other Dawson Creek volunteers that Thursday, I saw Keith the next morning for breakfast He was white around the eyes with fatigue. Searchers had found the man’s mushroom backpack, and, later, search dogs had found his personal pack. That wasn’t a good sign. A mushroom picker would never abandon his or her personal pack. The day Nancy and I left for home, Keith and the other Dawson Creek volunteers had been called back to resume the search. It is methodical, tedious work. After we were home, Keith’s wife Marilyn emailed me pictures of the search area and of Keith during the search. From those pictures it’s easy to see how tough the job could be, even in burned-out areas or where the trees are down. The mushroom picker’s body was eventually found. He had been dressed in black, the worst possible colour for the searchers. Keith was originally from a farm near West Lorne and his wife from a farm near Glencoe. They went to Zambia with CUSO when they were first married. Marilyn became a United Church minister and Keith also did some lay preaching from time to time. They’re the kind of people who would do anything for anybody. Just like so many people “back home” here in Elgin County. Things just seem bigger, more open, sometimes harder in the West. Not for the faint-hearted.

Gaining some journalism perspective AS I SEE IT Rick Wellwood

P

art of what gave me perspective as a journalist was knowing two men from White Minority countries: South Africa and Zimbabwe. The South African was Rupert Ray, a high school chum who went on to teach at St, Andrew’s College in Aurora. The Zimbawean was Ron Wilkin, a radio engineer who spent years at CFPL in London and moved to a station in Chatham. Rupert’s father was a minister and I assume he moved to Chatham to a new parish. He was bright and we spent many lunch hours playing Euchre. At the time I thought he was from England because of his accent. He and I also performed in the

The area where the mushroom picker was lost.

Drama Club and in debate. He went on the develop award winning debaters at St. Andrew’s and the College has a trophy in his honour. Ron’s arrival in Canada was due to the repressive policies introduced in Zimbabwe by the infamous Robert Mugabe, who dispossessed the white farmers of their land and distributed it among his supporter, few of whom knew how to farm. The land fell into ruin and the agricultural economy took a nosedive, even though the farms of Zimbabwe fed a great deal of Africa. Understandably, Ron never had much good to say about Mugabe, who has just been returned to his seventh term as president, even though observers say the election, like the others, was crooked and rigged. Only a revolution or the complete collapse of Zimbabwe may remove him from power. Both Rupert and Ron gave me perspective on social differences and helped me as a writer. I am grateful.

CMCA AUDITED


Editorial and Opinion Canadians in small towns and rural communities deserve access to the best wireless networks and new smartphones at competitive prices. That’s why Canada’s wireless industry invests billions of dollars every year and employs thousands of Canadians to build and enhance our wireless networks. Today, 99 percent of Canadians in cities, towns and rural locations alike have access to world-class mobile services and devices at the same prices as those available to customers in major cities. But rural rollouts of the latest and greatest in wireless – LTE or “Long Term Evolution” networks - are now at risk. The federal government has inadvertently left loopholes in new wireless regulations that pave the way for giant US corporations like Verizon Communications to purchase more of Canada’s airwaves than Canadian wireless companies can. These loopholes enable major US players to benefit from regulatory advantages actually intended for small, competitive wireless startups. Bell welcomes competition with anyone but there must be a level playing field. Canadians increasingly use smartphones and advanced data networks for business and educational applications, social networking, and entertainment options such as mobile TV and gaming. This fast-growing mobile data usage means that more and more spectrum is

needed to satisfy demand. And certain airwaves – like the 700 MHz spectrum about to be auctioned by the federal government – are best suited to carrying data over greater distances. These airwaves are a public resource, and are ideal for delivering advanced wireless services to rural and remote locations across Canada. The bad news for rural Canadians is that spectrum purchased by Verizon will not be used in rural areas. And because Verizon can bid for more of these newly available airwaves than Canadian companies can, providers like Bell will be limited in how extensively we can roll out rural coverage. Industry experts predict that New York based Verizon will avoid building networks in Canada’s rural areas altogether and focus only on serving the largest cities. It’s not just that a company like Verizon is unlikely to deliver more choice or reduced prices to rural Canadians (the average Verizon Wireless customer actually pays more than the average Bell wireless customer). Their ability to acquire more of our country’s prime airwaves than Canada’s own companies means that the spectrum ideal for rural rollouts will be used up serving mostly urban areas. Investment in rural Canada will decline. Canadian jobs will be lost. We believe a $120-billion US company like Verizon, multiple times bigger than Canada’s entire wireless industry combined, simply does not need favours from the Ca-

nadian government in order to compete with us. It’s not too late for Ottawa to take action to support a fair and open marketplace, and ensure the ongoing rollout of advanced mobile services to rural Canadians. Bell has brought LTE network technology to 75 percent of Canadians. With additional spectrum from the government’s upcoming auction and a level playing field, further network rollouts in smaller communities will be possible. Without changes to the loopholes, however, further rollouts are clearly at risk. The solution is straightforward. We ask that Canadian wireless companies be allowed the same opportunity to acquire

DON FERGUSON % Real Estate % Corporate Law % Commercial Law % Wills and Estates

Canadian spectrum as US companies like Verizon. And if a company like Verizon enters Canada, it should be required to use its resources to build its own national network covering both urban and rural locations, just as Canada’s wireless leaders have done. These steps will help ensure a strong Canadian wireless industry that continues to deliver world-leading mobile services at competitive prices in all markets – including Canada’s small towns and rural communities.

Ball hockey for sound system

The Port Stanley Arena sound system is in need of an overhaul. Announcements are hard to understand at times and music, when it is played, is not the best sound quality. Three major user groups of the arena are working to fix that problem. The Port Stanley Minor Hockey Association, Port Stanley Jr. C Sailors, and the Port Stanley Skating Club are collaborating to organize a 3-on-3 Ball Hockey Tournament and Fish Fry to raise funds to replace the outdated sound system and bring a new era of entertainment to the Port Stanley Arena. The weekend will see up to 28 teams compete in ball hockey action with teams guaranteed three games plus a final. Entry into the tournament is $120/team and there are divisions from Tyke (6-7

year olds) to Midget (16-17 year olds) as well as an open adult division. The tournament is Co-ed so anyone can play. Team registration may be done at www.psmha. com, or call Matt Moyes at 519-637-1375 for more information. Games will run from Aug. 15 – Aug. 18 with Thursday and Friday games in the evening hours. On Aug. 17 there is a Fish Fry with the meal being served from 5-8 p.m. with a cash bar all day. Fish Fry tickets are $20 for adults, $10 for kids 12 and under, and free for kids under 5. Tickets are available from Minor Hockey, The Skating Club, or Sailors Jr. C executive or by calling 519-6371375. Also there will be a Yard Sale upstairs featuring hockey equipment and figure skating apparel, and other items.

St. Thomas woman assaulted while walking home

Three people face robbery charges following an assault on a St. Thomas woman Aug. 1. A 21-year-old St. Thomas woman was walking home at 11:40 p.m. after visiting a friend’s home when she was approached by two women and a man. All three were known to the victim, police say. An arguement broke out that soon escalated into the victim being assaulted by the two women.

A bottle of alcohol and cash was taken from teh victim before the suspects fled the area. The victim managed to walk home and then called the police. Police made three arrests within 40 minutes of the offense. The victim refused any medical attention. A 30-year-old London woman has been charged with robbery, failure to comply with a recognizance, breach of

probation, as well as uttering threats to cause bodily harm. A 20-year-old St. Thomas woman is charged with robbery and assaulting police. The woman kicked a police officer while being arrested. The officer did not require medical attention. A 23 year old St. Thomas man is charged with robbery. All three accused were transported to the police station and held for morning bail hearings.

Chair-ity event held by STEGH

The St. Thomas-Elgin General Hospital (STEGH) Foundation has pulled out a chair for artistic expression and patient care. Chairs are on display at the STEGH, and not just any chairs. Normally, chairs are meant to be sat upon. Not these chairs. Unlike most chairs, the ones currently on display at the hospital are beautifully painted; with images of flowers, animals, and even one that’s painted as a tribute to The Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh, one of the greatest painters of all time. And it’s all for charity, or “chair-ity” if you prefer. This year, the STEGH Foundation has launched its first annual Chair Affair, a signature event for the Foundation. Throughout the next several months, artisans and designers will be asked to create a chair, each one with its own unique theme, which will be sold in a week-long public silent auction in the Fall.

The 2013 Chair Affair will culminate with a gala event to be held Oct. 26 at the CASO station in St. Thomas, where a live auction of up to ten chairs will be held with celebrity auctioneers. Until then, some of the chairs can be seen at the hospital. “We should have about 40 chairs in total that will be on display here at the hospital, out at Elgin Mall and down at the CASO station,” said Joanne Beaton, Acting Executive Director at STEGH Foundation. The last of the chairs is expected to be completed by the end of September. The Chair Affair’s goal is to raise $25,000 to go towards Mental Health. One person in five in Elgin County will have a mental health problem during their lifetime, according to the STEGH Foundation. “For most of us, the St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital has been the place we’ve relied on for medical expertise any hour of the day or night, not only for ourselves, but for our friends, family members and other loved ones,” said MPP Steve Peters in an official Chair Affair release. Peters will serve as honorary chair at the Oct. 26 live auction, and all assist with the duties of auctioneer. “This year’s Chair Affair will not only support the need to fundraise for direct patient care, but will celebrate the artistic expression of talented people from across the County who have donated their time and talents to help their community hospital.” Many of the artists who have contributed chairs represent organizations such as the Port Stanley Artists Guild, the St. Thomas Elgin Artists Guild, the Association of Port Stanley Artists, the Portside Gallery of Port Stanley and the Art Emporium of Port Stanley.

Prep work important before painting

Painting a home’s interior can give it a completely new look and feel. A fresh coat of paint can make a room feel more vibrant and up-to-date, creating a whole new attitude within the room without breaking the bank. Whether creating an accent wall or painting each wall within a room, painting is a relatively easy and inexpensive home improvement project. But that doesn’t mean painting does not require a little prep work before the project can begin. * Address any holes or bumps on the wall. Holes or cracks in the wall will need to be patched with spackle, which then must dry before the wall can be given a new coat of paint. In addition, sand down any bumps until the walls are smooth and free of any unsightly abnormalities. * Wash the walls. Walls can get dirty, and that dirt may or may not be masked by paint. Before adding a new coat of paint, wash the walls and inspect them for dust. Dust can collect on molding, especially in rooms that get little natural air. When dust has collected on the molding and around doorways and trim, use a damp cloth to wipe it away before adding any new paint. * Apply primer. Primer can serve many functions, not the least of which is its role as a bonding agent between

the wall and the top coat of paint. Primer can also help conceal dark colors, prevent stains and increase the life expectancy of the paint job you are about to undertake. * Prepare your paint. Preparing the paint is a simple task, but one novice painters may not be aware of. When opening a new can of paint, stir the paint before using it. In addition, even if you don’t plan to use a roller when painting, do not paint straight from the can, which can be heavier to hold than a small bowl, and a light bowl is less likely to be spilled than a potentially heavy can of paint. In addition, once paint has been removed from the can, replace the lid so dust and other impurities do not settle in the can. * Purchase painter’s tape. Painter’s tape can be especially valuable to novice painters. Painter’s tape makes it easier to paint smooth and clean paint lines, giving a room a more professional looking coat of paint without the cost of hiring a professional painter. Painting can be an inexpensive and fun way to upgrade a home’s interior. But even though painting does not require the technical know-how of more large-scale home improvement projects, it still requires some prep work and attention to detail to ensure the job is done right.

enced both buyers and sellers. While an economy on the rebound no doubt beneďŹ tted homeowners looking to recoup as much of their home improvement investment at resale as possible, other factors likely contributed as well For example, homeowners surveyed for the 2013 report who added a backup power generator recouped more of their investment than in previous years. That’s likely because heavily publicized storms have forced homeowners

and prospective homeowners to place a greater emphasis on being prepared for such storms. Among the upscale projects surveyed, none recouped more of a homeowner’s investment than replacing existing siding with ďŹ ber-cement siding. Homeowners who ďŹ nanced such a project recouped 79.3 percent of the project’s cost, placing it just ahead of a garage door replacement, which recouped an average of 75.2 percent of its cost.

give them when they come to the fair,â€? said Scott. New this year will be the Friday Night Fiascal event. People from local garages and dealerships will enter teams and drive vehicles through a challenging course in a time-trial event. The top two teams will then face each other in an exciting motor cross ďŹ nale. Scott came up with the idea for the event, having competed in derbies all his life and being an an auto shop himself. He thought it would be a great way to entertain the crowd. Scott has been volunteering his time with the Aylmer Fair for the last seven years. His desire to help out was motivated by a desire to make things better in his community. “As a young person, I took a bit from the community as young people do, and when you get a little older, you want to give back. It shows my children what volunteering does for the community,â€? said Scott. Visit the Aylmer Fair online at www.aylmerfair.ca for more information.

There’s no shortage of fun at the Aylmer Fair, and you may learn a little about the importance of agriculture while you’re at it. The Aylmer Fair will turn 167 this year, not only making it the oldest agricultural fair in District 13, but one of the oldest fairs in all of Ontario. “A lot of fairs are going wayside. We we plan on being here for a long time yet,â€? said Scott Lewis, who has been Fair board president. “It’s a reward to know that I’m making a difference. It’s not just me, it’s the volunteers.â€? The Aylmer Fair is a non-proďŹ t society run by the Ontario Association of Agricultural Societies (OAAS). This year, the fair will be Aug. 9-11.The Aylmer Fair grounds is home to some of the best local agricultural shows, including the East Elgin 4-H Sheep Club Achievement Day, Dairy Shows, Pony and Horse Shows, and Poultry Shows. “We’re trying to get back to the ‘rurals’ of life, educating kids on where their food comes from, how farmers make it happen. That’s the experience we hope to

and do the right thing, act the right way, and respond to people correctly you will make it in life. SOMETHING TO So many of our ‘not so bright’ decisions THINK ABOUT are made with our emotions and feelings. In learning to manage our feelings and Pastor Cusick emotions we can make good decisions and act appropriately. How you live is way more important on’t get confused with your emothan what you are feeling! tions and your feelings. Sure, you have them, but, if you I heard, just the other day this great little are going to grow, learn, and develop you saying, and it goes like this: “What you do speaks so loud, I can’t must learn to manage them. hear what you are saying.” If you learn to manage your emotions

D

I immediately thought of people I choose not to listen to. It is not that they do not have good advice--it is just that they do not have a good life. They just do dumb things--so they’ve lost their ability to advise. They keep on giving me advice--I smile--but I’m actually ignoring them. I grew up in a home where the opposite was true. I never caught my father telling a lie, and I never saw him in a compromising situation.

He was diligent, faithful, and a great leader. Sure, he talked to me as well--but his life choices and his ‘doing’ screamed at me. He didn’t really have to talk all that much. What you are doing is way more important than what you are saying. Your life choices scream at your kids, your neighbours, your boss, or your employees. Here’s some fairly simple advice--stop talking so much and start living. And that is something to think about.
