Atoms are All-Ontario champions after final series sweep by Patrick Raftis DRAYTON – The Drayton Defenders Atom Rep team are All-Ontario champions. The team won the Ontario Minor Hockey Association (OMHA) Atom D championship on March 16, completing a three game sweep of Woodville in the series with a 3-1 victory on home ice. All three games in the series ended up 3-1 in Drayton’s favour. Caleb Cribben netted all three goals in the final game, posting a hat trick, while the rest of the team “played really well defensively and held them off,” said coach Jason Jack. The provincial title caps an amazing season, which saw the team, lose only once in the regular season while going undefeated in the playoffs. The team won 11 playoff games over four series, outscoring opponents 74-14 in the process. “The confidence, you could see it just grew with everyone all year,” said Jack. “Fun to watch. From the first game of the year to the last you could see the improvement.” Jack said the final series victory, like the rest of the successful season was the result of a complete team effort. “They just played really well as a team. There wasn’t one player that made or broke every game. They bought into our system that we wanted to go with,” Jack noted.

Provincial champs - The Drayton Atom Rep Defenders won the OMHA Atom D title with a third straight win over Woodville on March 16. Team members include, from left: front, Caleb Cribbin, Shawn Culp, Ian Feffros, Raegan Cressman, Tyler Franklin, Kyle Mulder, Matt Kuper; centre, Cody Burnett, Griffen Jack, Brett Armstrong, Payton McIsaac, Keegan McIntosh, Adam Chittick, Steve Skerritt; back, coaches Jason Jack, Joe Heenan, Brian Debeyer and trainer Brian Chittick. submitted photo

Enhancements to stroke recovery services aim of meeting

PALMERSTON - The North Wellington Stroke Recovery Team recently met with health providers from Waterloo Wellington Stroke

Stream of Care (WWSSC) to update and discuss strategies for providing and improving stroke rehabilitation to patients in the rural areas of Wellington

County. Specifically, the WWSSC is seeking to formally integrate all stroke-related health services under one umbrella through

the Waterloo Wellington Local Health Integration Network. The teams met at The Palmerston United Church on March 1, and discussed four

key strategies: - more timely emergency care when stroke symptoms first appear; Continued on page 6

Council objects to size of shop by Patrick Raftis MAPLETON – Council here is objecting to a minor variance application for an over-sized home industry in the Wallenstein area. The application, from Adam Berringer of RR 1 Wallenstein, requested the variance to permit an oversized woodworking shop on his property on Line 86. Mapleton’s zoning by-law permits a maximum size of 2,500 square feet for a home industry and the applicant is requesting 3,220 square feet for the shop, and an additional 396 square feet for a room to park wagons to collect sawdust. Councillor Jim Curry said he sees no reason to allow a deviation from the zoning requirements. “I strongly feel we should follow our zoning bylaw. Otherwise, what’s the point of having a bylaw? We have a bylaw that sets a maximum size of 2,500 square feet, I think we should stay with it,” Curry said at the March 5 council meeting. Council members also noted it was not clear from the drawings included with the application if the additional area for parking and sawdust storage was completely enclosed. Council defeated a resolution stating it did not object to the requested relief and agreed to provide the reasons for their objection to the township’s committee of adjustment, which will deal with the application at a public hearing. The hearing was scheduled for March 13, but was cancelled. The next committee of adjustment meeting will be April 10 at 9:30am.

Mapleton Musings Column courtesy of Mapleton Historical Society Haack’s Tile Yard, Drayton As early as 1881, Edward C. Haack and William Robb were purchasing land in what was then known as W. C. Wortley’s survey in the Village of Drayton. This land is on the northwest side of Wellington Street where the soccer field and walking trail are situated. There was a deposit of good clay in the hill beside the Conestogo River. They purchased more adjacent land in the next few years. Little information about their business has been found, however it would appear that Edward Haack bought out his partner. The following article appeared in the June 21, 1890 issue of local paper, the Advocate: “Mr. E. C. Haack has just completed what can be truly called the largest tile kiln in the Dominion of Canada today. It is 70 feet long by about 30 feet wide, with a three-foot fourinch brick partition through the entire length. The kiln is calculated to burn, at each fire, 84,000 2-inch tiles, and while one compartment is being burnt the other is being filled or emptied as the case may be. An ordinary burn takes about

forty-eight hours and will consume about thirty cords of dry hardwood. Mr. Haack has, at present, twenty-one hands engaged in the manufacture of tile and will doubtless, before the season is over, employ even a larger number than this. The first fire was started Saturday evening to try the draught, which was pronounced good. The securing of sufficient good dry wood may interfere slightly with the running of the kiln, but it is expected a quantity will have to be shipped in by rail. We hope to see this industry develop into much larger proportions yet, as the Drayton tile are considered the very best that are made, and farmers knowing the importance of draining may so patronize the article manufactured here, that the capacity of the business will require to be greatly increased.” In an ad, later that year, the company boasted about the quality of their tile and promised to fill orders “on short notice” either by rail or team and wagon. In 1895, the Advocate reported the business of Haack

Injuries from mishaps with the machinery were common occurrences. In 1916 the property, “with all the buildings, machinery and tools”, was sold to J. W. Scott & Son. By 1919 the property was joined with other lands to become a small farm. For years the remains of the kiln pillars stood sentinel as cattle pastured in the field.

and Co. had been so busy the previous year they had sold 35 more carloads of tile than were available, so they had added a lot of new machinery which enabled the firm to turn out 100,000 tiles in an eleven-hour working day. Mining the slippery clay and making tile was dangerous work. Reports tell of one man who was killed in a clay slide and two in accidents with the machinery.

Teamwork pays off

Two local hockey teams took quite different routes, but ended up the same place this week, the top of the heap. The All-Ontario champion Drayton Defenders Atom Rep team claimed their title with three straight victories, all by a 3-1 score, for sweep in the final playoff round, capping a dream season in which the team lost only once in the regular season and went undefeated in the playoffs outscoring their opposition by a whopping 60-goal margin over 11 playoff games. Meanwhile the Drayton Peewee Local League team worked to string together an 8-2 playoff run to claim the championship of their Western Ontario Athletic Association loop after posting a regular season mark of 4-14. As the smiling faces in the photos of the respective teams in this week’s issue of the Community News amply illustrate, members both teams clearly savoured their victories with equal relish, no doubt, at least in part, because of a shared sense of accomplishment. Few championships are won without a group of players finding a way to become more than just a group of individuals – to win it all requires two types of work, hard work and teamwork. Congratulations to two local squads for displaying both in ample supply. Not every season can end in a championship, but thanks to countless volunteers and supporters, young people across the region, the province and the country have a chance to enjoy the thrill of competition and learn lessons in sportsmanship and team-building. In that respect, every year, everyone wins. Patrick Raftis

An hour without power On Saturday, March 23, Ontario will join the world in marking Earth Hour by turning off the lights between 8:30 and 9:30pm. Earth Hour is a global event dedicated to raising awareness about conserving energy and fighting climate change. Everyone can make a difference by taking steps to conserve energy after Earth Hour when the lights go back on. Five tips to help manage energy use Seize the daylight: In the winter, keep curtains open during the day to draw in sunlight. Solar energy can help naturally warm your home. Drafts be gone: Install weatherstripping and caulking around windows, doors and dryer vents, and insulate your home properly including plates on outlets to help save up to 25 per cent a year on heating and cooling costs. Get with the program: When properly set, a programmable thermostat can reduce heating and cooling costs by up to 10 per cent. In the winter, set your thermostat to 20°C when you’re home and 18°C when sleeping or away. Heat efficiently: Have a qualified technician service your furnace on a regular basis to ensure it is working at maximum efficiency. Clean or change the filter regularly - a dirty filter reduces airflow and makes the furnace work harder to circulate the air. Off-peak pays: Take advantage of lower energy prices during off-peak hours. Off-peak hours are 7pm to 7am on weeknights and all day on weekends and statutory holidays. According to the World Wildlife Fund, 152 different countries and more than 6,950 cities participated in Earth Hour in 2012, including 39 per cent of Canadians - 13 million people across 511 cities. Ontario’s elimination of coal-fired electricity generation is the single largest greenhouse gas reduction measure being undertaken in North America. The province will have shut down 17 of 19 coal units by the end of 2013. By the end of 2014, Ontario will be one of the first places in the world to eliminate coal as a source of electricity production.

Elmira Vacuum & Electrical is a unique, diversified business originally founded in 1983 as Elmira Vac Centre. The company was renamed February 1, 2010 when it was taken over by local resident Steve Pond. The store carries do-it-yourself electrical supplies with products such as breakers, switch covers, PVC piping, lamp parts, light bulbs and more. Elmira Vacuum & Electrical offers the complete line of EUREKA vacuums from the light weight upright and portable models to the built-in central vacuums for new or existing homes. Eureka has been distributing vacuums in Canada since 1909, and is part of Electrolux, the world’s largest vacuum cleaner company which manufactures and distributes over 130 different models. Eureka’s Zuum central vacuum has a powerful motor for deep cleaning power creating incredible water lift in tests. Because the power unit remains in the garage, basement or outside the home, you don’t have to lug a heavy power unit around, and it’s also quieter. You vent all dirt, dust and allergens outside the living area so the air you are breathing is cleaner. The motorized power nozzle is attached to a crush-proof hose that can be plugged into various inlets located throughout your new or existing home. Eureka uprights are equipped with powerful motors for use on carpets, hard floors or both. The Eureka line also includes canister models offering lots of variety when it comes to accessories, as well as steam cleaners, and convenient small handheld lightweight bag-less models. Elmira Vacuum & Electrical also has vacuum bags, belts, power heads, hoses for all vacs whether built-in or portable. They provide parts & repairs to all makes and models of vacuums.

By Dave Tiessen, Pastor, Community Mennonite Fellowship, Drayton

Silence in our midst The news coverage of the Roman Catholic Church transitioning from a retiring pope to a newly-elected one has been remarkably extensive and surprisingly positive. However not infrequently some journalists have tried to becloud the sunny day with reminders of the priest child sex abuse scandals that RC Church leaders have so fre-

quently handled very wrongly. In case you missed it this is about thousands of cases where priests sexually molested children and youth under their ministry or care, and when it was uncovered Church overseers often chose to cover it up and move the priest rather than reporting the crime to authorities, providing care and treatment for the victims, and severely disciplining the priest to ensure that it would never happen again. The reality is that the Roman Catholic Church is by

no means the only organization, religious or otherwise, that has not done well at dealing openly and in healthy ways with sexual abuse. Way back in the 1980s, I was a rookie wetbehind-the-ears youth pastor. One Saturday when the senior pastor was out of town for an extended period I got a frantic call from a mom to come as soon as possible to their home because their teenage daughter had run away from home. When I arrived, the highlyagitated mother explained the teen and her father had gotten into another argument and in the heat of the exchange the daughter screamed out the accusation that the father had been secretly but regularly fondling and touching her breasts and groin. The mom didn’t know what to think or do. I didn’t either. And, when the senior pastor returned, he didn’t either. Our ignorance was the result of almost no public awareness or discussion about sexual abuse within families and organizations, matched with great reluctance to deal openly with

FROM PAGE ONE - better and more timely access to specialized in hospital care; - better access to intensive stroke rehabilitative care; and - stronger community services and supported transition. In the Waterloo Wellington area, more than 860 patients experience a stroke every year yet research in this area has shown that, due to the current fragmented system, fewer stroke patents are accessing inpatient rehabilitative care. A question and answer period followed. The meeting was one of several seminars being held throughout Wellington County. Local March of Dimes team members were also present.

And while the suffering may be silent, the consequences are anything but “silent.” In their wounding, abuse victims often struggle fiercely with shame, selfhatred, self-harm, substance abuse and addictions, suicide, distrust, broken relationships, etc. CATS – Community Awareness Training Seminars – is a group of caring people in the Drayton-PalmerstonListowel area committed to helping the families, organizations and churches of our community recognize and respond helpfully to some of the significant mental and emotional health issues of our time.

to encourage recognition that sexual abuse and its painful consequences are present in our community, but that victims of such abuse most often suffer in silence because the community is not willing “to go there” and prefers to turn a blind eye to this reality. The focus of this seminar is to encourage especially leadership people in our community to be willing to see the symptoms and indicators of abuse in the lives of people in our community, and then be willing to break the silence by naming it, stopping it, and caring for the victims. Hence our title ‘opening our hearts’ (to abuse victims) and ‘breaking the silence’ (about the presence of sexual abuse among us). The resource person for the seminar will be Susan Winter Fledderus, a Clinical Therapist with Shalem Mental Health Network. There is no cost to attend, but be warned that participation may severely broaden your horizons and cause your heart “to grow three sizes.” For more information please call me at 519-638-3012.

an issue that is always painful and complex. The Catholic Church is not without error on this issue but what church or organization is? Sexual abuse is a serious issue because of the deep wounding that results when a child or youth is violated sexually by an adult, and exponentially more so when that adult is a parent, grandparent, sibling, other relative, pastor, or any person with responsibility of trust and care over the young person. Just as our sexuality has beautiful and awesome power to celebrate and strengthen the intimacy between two people committed to loving and caring for one another in marriage, so sexuality has horrible and terrible power to mangle and traumatize when it is imposed by an adult upon a young person. Dear readers, such victims of past abuse are in our midst – in our families, in our churches, in our schools, in our service clubs, in our workplaces - and children and youth are still being abused in our communities. Most often abuse survivors

first day of holy week, are sharing in a Seder meal which is a Jewish Feast of salvation and deliverance from bondage. To assist them in entering into the root of the event they have invited Charles Hopkins, of Chosen People’s Ministries ( to lead them through the meal and explain how the Seder meal is a prelude to the Lord’s Supper often called Holy Communion. Hopkins was born and raised in Tanzania and grew up not knowing his Jewish roots, but in 1983 he attended a Bible study and his life has never been the same. He has worked with Youth With A Mission in England, Kenya, Uganda and Canada, served in ministering at a juvenile detention centre, an orphanage, in private and government run schools and has studied some Messianic Yeshiva studies. Charles, who came to Canadqa with his wife Joan has felt called to share his Jewish roots and heritage and faith to help Christians understand their own faith better. Those wishing to attend a kosher type supper starting at 5:30pm are asked to contact Liz Samis at 519-638-3268 to reserve a seat. Cost is $10.00. Everyone is welcome but seating is limited.
