Five injured in three-vehicle crash MAPLETON - Five people were injured in a three-vehicle accident here on Oct. 4. Wellington OPP responded to a report of a serious crash at the intersection of Wellington Road 8 and Wellington Road 10 in Mapleton Township at around 2pm. Firefighters from Mapleton Fire Department and paramedics from GuelphWellington EMS also responded to the scene. Investigators from West Region OPP were called to the scene and the roadway was closed for several hours while officers conducted their investigation. Police say a black

Toyota SUV was travelling northbound on County Road 10 when it entered the intersection and collided with a silver Honda van that was travelling westbound on County Road 8. The Toyota SUV then collided with a red Buick LeSabre which was stopped facing south on County Road 10 at the intersection of County Road 8. This intersection is controlled by stop signs for north and southbound traffic on County Road 10. The driver of the Buick, Catherine Austin, 56, of Woodstock, was airlifted from the crash scene to London

Victoria Hospital with serious injuries. The driver of the Toyota SUV, Hyunkee Woo, 75, and the passenger Myung Hee Woo, 72, both of Guelph, were transported by ambulance to the Palmerston and District Hospital, at which time Hee Woo was airlifted to Hamilton General Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The two occupants of the Honda van, driver Kimberly Paget, 42, of Palmerston and Angela MacDonald, 47, of Palmerston, were treated by paramedics at the scene for minor injuries.

Wind Concerns Ontario concurs with ECO on wildlife impact risks TORONTO Wind Concerns Ontario (WCO) is applauding the recent report from the Environmental Commissioner of Ontario (ECO) for his concerns expressed about wind power project impacts on wildlife. Ontario has 70 important bird areas (IBA) where “it would make sense to avoid constructing wind power projects,” the report says. Today there are several projects proposed for IBAs, such as the north shore

of Lake Erie, Prince Edward County and Amherst Island. The commissioner is also “troubled” by the omission of any requirements to assess the effects of multiple wind power projects in a given area. “We know that the bird kills at Wolfe Island’s IBA far exceed what the developer estimated,” says president Jane Wilson. “The responsible course of action would be for Ontario to declare a ‘no-go’ for wind projects in important

bird areas. “There is no healthy ‘natural’ co-existence when wind turbines are too near people or birds,” Wilson says. “People are ill and birds are killed. The Ontario government should see rural communities as ‘important human areas’ and protect them as well.” Wind Concerns Ontario is a citizen coalition concerned about the environmental, health and economic effects of wind power generation in Ontario.

by Patrick Raftis MAPLETON – Council here is supporting a call for the provincial government to take over responsibility for school crossing guards. At the Sept 25 meeting, council agreed to support a resolution from the Municipality of Central Huron seeking changes to Ontario’s Education Act to make the Ministry of

Education the responsible authority and have the ministry cover the cost of school crossing guard programs rather than local governments. “I think it would be something the school boards could probably do better than us having anything to do with it,” said councilor Neil Driscoll. Mayor Bruce Whale agreed the education ministry should

fund the cost of the program, “rather than taking it out of the municipal tax base.” The Central Huron resolution, while noting that “school crossing guards play a vital role in road safety for children,” states the expenses “are a burden on the taxpayers” of municipalities that provide the service.

Council wants guarantee on new sign MAPLETON – Council here approved the purchase of an illuminated sign for the Mapleton Industrial Park, provided the installer can provide a 10-year guarantee. The double-sided aluminum sign will be approximately 22 feet high and eight feet wide, with six inch square tube columns and will cost $18,535 plus an additional $375 for graphics identifying industrial park tenants. Some of the

cost will be recovered through charges to tenants. Councillor Mike Downey asked if the sign came with a guarantee, noting that some of the other signage in the village faded fairly soon after installation. Public works director Larry Lynch said sign manufacturers generally don’t provide a guarantee. “Basically, they are not guaranteeing anything,” said

Lynch, noting that external factors affect fading. “The orientation against sun really impacts how this is going to play out over a longterm basis,” he stated. Lynch also noted the illuminated sign would be made of different material than other types of signs, which have faded faster. Council approved the purchase of the sign from Raynbow Signs, provided a 10-year-guarantee is included.

Arnott provides update on Groves hospital project QUEEN’S PARK Wellington-Halton Hills MPP Ted Arnott rose in the Ontario Legislature on Oct. 4 to highlight the progress being made in the planning for a new Groves Memorial Community Hospital. “The planning for our new Groves Memorial Community Hospital in the Township of Centre Wellington continues to gain momentum,” Arnott informed the legislature. “Recently the Waterloo Wellington Local Health Integration Network endorsed the program and service elements which Groves had submitted, and the LHIN urged the ministry to prioritize the deter-

mination of projected volumes and bed numbers. “Next steps include working with Infrastructure Ontario on cost estimates for design and construction, and meetings with hospital staff and stakeholders to help shape the project design,” he continued. “An architectural firm has been selected and hired, and we believe we are on track to begin the tendering process by 2014/15, which was the date announced by the province last August.” Afterwards, Arnott also emphasized the need to support ongoing fundraising efforts. “The Groves Hospital Foundation continues its good

work, with creative and innovative fundraising ideas have attracted international attention. Their work goes on, as long as the need does,” he added. A press release from Arnott’s office states the MPP has been a strong advocate for the Groves hospital redevelopment project for years. He has both written and spoken to successive Ministers of Health on multiple occasions, given numerous speeches in the legislature, and even initiated a debate and vote in the House. Plans for a new Groves Memorial Community Hospital building on a new site were announced in August, 2011.

Improved patient care and safety through a modernized layout and better coordination between key clinical areas is a focus of the project. Groves hospital is an acute care facility providing a wide range of services to about 34,500 people. The hospital, currently has 44 beds and 277 staff, and treats more than 68,000 people each year. The new hospital will be located in the Aboyne area of Centre Wellington between Fergus and Elora, serving a catchment area of Centre Wellington, Alma, Arthur, Belwood, parts of Mapleton, parts of Wellington North and the surrounding rural areas.

No pity at the pump For years now, gas stations have made a practice of displaying on their pumps a chart showing the amount of taxation that goes into the price consumers pay at the pump. Not so long ago, while not enough to cause any motorists to shed tears of sympathy for the oil moguls, the taxation component was high enough to prevent most from griping about the price to their local gas station attendant. Pump-side stickers over this past holiday weekend showed that taxation accounted for about 38 cents of the $1.29 being charged for a litre of regular at the more merciful stations in the area. That’s about 30 per cent of the price, a hefty tax bill to be sure. However, put into historical perspective, we’re pumping a lot less tax into our tanks these days. In 1992, taxation represented about 49 per cent of the pump price. Since gas prices, over any significant period of time, travel only one direction, namely upward, it’s clear that more of your cash is going directly to oil companies. Of course, they need it, they will quickly spin, to pay for the higher crude costs in today’s market, which these days account for around 53 per cent of the pump prices. But if the petroleum producers are truly sharing in our pain, why then, the downtrodden motorist must wonder, were the big five oil companies able to generate a record profit of $137 billion in 2011? How were they able to earn over $62 billion in the first half of 2012? The answer of course, is because they can. There’s really no practical alternative to gasoline, at this point in history, for business or individuals who need to travel to survive. Since we do operate in a free market economy, with supply and demand the primary price-maker, there’s not a whole lot governments or consumers can do about the price of petrol. However, one thing we shouldn’t let oil companies do any more is convince us it’s taxation, rather than profit-taking, that’s keeping gasoline prices artificially high. So next time you fill up, don’t give that sticker a second glance. They can force us to pump our pockets dry, but they clearly don’t deserve our sympathy. Patrick Raftis

Letter to the Editor A welcoming community Dear Editor: Michael Bull Roberts, a former drug lord, gangster and enforcer, visited the Drayton Reformed Church on Sept. 30. Over 450 people were in attendance and many waited patiently to meet and speak with this best-selling author, artist, motivational speaker and founder of Tender Heart Ministries which is located in the heart of downtown Toronto. The 400-pound, 6’4” Roberts shared his heart and was genuinely moved by the response of those in attendance. He wanted to thank the Drayton and surrounding area for their kindness and welcoming way. He asked me to send

this message to the community at large: “Thank you to all the folks in your town that came out to shake hands and hear me tell my long-winded stories. God bless your little town. It was awesome and more of a blessing to me than anything else. It really encouraged me that I’m doing the right thing and it gave me new strength. Thank you Drayton and area and Drayton Reformed Church. Please pass my joy on to your pastors and congregation!” It’s good to live in such a welcoming community. Thank you to everyone who helped make this an inspiring evening. Glynis Belec and Amanda Newton, Drayton

Insurance Bureau of Canada (IBC) offers tips for Canadians to learn how to prevent and respond appropriately in case of a fire. “Statistics show that most fires are caused by careless behavior. An ounce of prevention and education can help save lives, homes and irreplaceable keepsakes,” says Ralph Palumbo, vice president, Ontario with IBC. Nearly one in three fires is caused by carelessness or negligent use of combustible materials, cooking appliances or mechanical and electrical malfunctions. Pre-planning and maintaining a fire safe environment helps to prevent fires from happening and ensures you are better prepared to handle a fire

emergency. First and foremost, smoke detectors should be installed on every floor of your home. Statistics show Almost half of installed smoke detectors are not in good operating condition. Even worse, many homes are still not equipped with smoke detectors. Here are some important tips to protect you against fire: Check and maintain your smoke detectors. Replace batteries at least once a year around Daylight Savings Time. Establish a fire evacuation plan. Practise your fire escape plan with all family members. In the event of house fire don’t waste a second, leave your house and call the fire department. In the event of an apartment fire never use an elevator and always feel the door before exiting, if it is hot do not open it. Use your kitchen safely. Don’t leave anything cooking

unattended. Turn off the stove even if you leave the room for just a few seconds. Safely store matches and lighters away from children. Ask children to tell you when they find matches or lighters. Remind them each time such items are for adults only. Be careful if you smoke. Never smoke in bed. Wet cigarette butts before disposing them. Be careful with electricity. Spot devices that are dangerous or in poor condition: flickering lamps, bare wires, open circuit breakers etc. Give space heaters space. Leave at least one meter (three feet) between combustible materials and space heaters. Get rid of combustible waste. Regularly dispose of anything that could cause a fire: paints, solvents you no longer need, or stacks of paper etc.

PREVENTION WEEK OCTOBER 7 - 13 Have Two ways out

Tips to avoid electrical fires TORONTO - Hydro One wants to help prevent electrical fires. Electrical fires top the list of causes for house fires in Canada. To mark Fire Prevention Week, Hydro One is reminding everyone to take actions that could help prevent an electrical fire. Keep electrical cords away from heat and water as they can both damage the insulation and create a shock hazard. When you’re changing a light bulb, be sure to turn off the switch or circuit. Put safety caps on any unused electrical outlets, especially if there are young children in the house. Inspect cords and plugs. Make it part of your routine

prior to using a tool or an appliance. Replace electrical cords that have cut, broken or cracked insulation and remember to pull the plug, not the cord to extend the life of the cord itself. Avoid octopus outlets! Clusters of wires and plugs can be a fire hazard along with using extension cords as permanent wiring. These products were never meant to be used that way so consider up-dating the wiring in your home. Buy appliances approved by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) and always disconnect small appliances before cleaning them. If you’re renovating this fall, remember all electrical work must be inspected and

approved by the Electrical Safety Authority. This inspection must be done prior to covering any wiring with drywall or any other wall/ceiling materials. Have a qualified electrician look at electrical supply, panels and wiring to determine what alterations or additions will be required for renovation and make arrangements for an electrical inspection. In the market for a new home this fall? Then an electrical inspection should be high on the list prior to signing on the dotted line. Not only do you want to ensure that the home is safe but you also want to know upfront if up-dates to the home’s wiring are required to bring it up to code.

Training - Local firefighters meet each Tuesday night for training and practice sessions.

The Mapleton & Area Business Profile

Providing best system possible is the priority at Marquardt Farm Drainage Marquardt Farm Drainage has been working to provide customers with the best farm drainage system for their needs since the company was established in the mid-1950s. Founded by three farming brothers who began by tiling fields for their neighbours, Marquardt Farm Drainage was incorporated in 1968. Steven Cronsberry, who began working for the company in 1981, purchased the business from Earl Marquardt when he retired in 1981. Since the beginning, Cronsberry said the business

has been built with the assistance of reliable employees on the principle of providing a professional service at a reasonable cost. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have 10 key employees who have been reliable and loyal to help me provide the customers with the best they can receive,â&#x20AC;? said Cronsberry, adding the company employs â&#x20AC;&#x153;very competent hyhoe and dozer operators who can do all our excavating work to our high level of expectations.â&#x20AC;? Marquardt Farm Drainage takes pride in servicing clients in a timely fashion, while

making sure work is done to todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s demanding regulatory standards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re dealing with a lot more rules and regulations,â&#x20AC;? said Cronsberry, including: wetland designations, land clearing rules, fisheries and oceans and conservation authority regulations and road crossing permits. Cronsberry, who started doing survey working with a laser level and staff in 1981, says the business strives to upgrade equipment to keep up with current technologies and consistently provides compe-

tent and reliable workers to maintain a high standard of professionalism. A graduate of the engineering diploma program at Conestoga College, Cronsberry joined Marquardtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s after working for an engineering firm, to price tile work, survey fields and design tile systems for clients. A community-minded business, Marquardtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supports the local hospital, agricultural societies and other organizations which raise funds to help others. Cronsberry is a longtime member of the Harriston Kinsmen and K-40 clubs and has also been a member of the Harriston branch of the Royal Canadian Legion. When he started out, Cronsberry recalls, all data was kept in a field book, elevation calculations were done with a calculator and he had to plot elevation on maps, draw contour lines and design systems by hand. Since 1993 the business has continually become more computerized. The acquisition of a selfpropelled drainage plow improved efficiency and a second drainage machine was

crete installations, open ditch work, hyhoe and dozer work, ditches, fence rows, land clearing and detailed land surveys for all projects. The technology may have changed over the years, but not the goals and objectives at Marquardt Farm Drainage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We aim to provide the most professional drainage system possible, and not provide a job where speed and productivity take precedent over getting the job done right using our job design parameters,â&#x20AC;? states Cronsberry. To reach Marquardt Farm Drainage, RR 3, Palmerston, call 519-343-3233.

added to keep up with the work load. Since 2009 survey work has been done with a total station instrument. A computer handles contour plans, while systems continue to be designed by hand. GPS light bars are used to set up runs and GPS grade control system to install tile. Marquardtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s runs two self-propelled drainage machines, and a large wheel machine to install their tile systems. Today, Marquardtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s provides total farm drainage services, including plastic and concrete installations. Municipal drainage services include con-
