Mapleton examines cost benefits of switch to water metering system

We Scare Hunger - Students from Drayton Heights Public School went door to door on Oct. 30, collecting non-perishable food items for the Drayton Food Bank. Students were participating in the We Scare Hunger campaign run by Free The Children. They collected hundreds of food items and thank community members for their generosity. submitted photo

Drayton closes 2012 season with Annie ST. JACOBS – Just in time for the holiday season, the sun’ll come out when the beloved tale of Little Orphan Annie is brought to life on stage at the St. Jacobs Country Playhouse, giving another generation of young people the chance to experience this enchanting musical about hope and friendship. Proclaimed by critics as “one of the best musicals ever,” Annie plays six weeks

only, Nov.13 through Dec. 23. “Annie is a family favourite that appeals to audiences of all ages,” says Alex Mustakas, artistic director of Drayton Entertainment. Earlier this summer Annie played to packed houses at the King’s Wharf Theatre in Penetanguishene and the Huron Country Playhouse in Grand Bend. Inspired by the famous 1920s comic strip Little

Orphan Annie, the Broadway musical Annie made its debut in 1977. It won seven Tony Awards, the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Musical, seven Drama Desk Awards including Best Musical, and the Grammy Award for Best Cast Show Albumn. The original production is one of the longest running shows in Broadway history. Continued on page 8

by Patrick Raftis MAPLETON – Township council is planning to hire a consultant to identity financial impacts and set rates for a proposed water metering system in Mapleton. At its Oct. 23 meeting, council directed staff to prepare a request for proposals (RFP) to prepare a report for the potential metering of Drayton and Moorefield. In a report to council, public works director Larry Lynch noted that over the past several years there has been “considerable discussion and research regarding the merits of a water meter program for both Drayton and Moorefield.” Lynch pointed out in his written report that under the existing flat rate system, heavy water users pay less, while light users pay more. In a metered system, users pay based on individual consumption. In a flat rate system, “if one

user continuously waters their lawn in the summer months, washes the car or cars on a regular basis or has leaking taps or plumbing in their house or business, the entire community pays a portion of that cost,” the report states. Lynch said the advantage of a meter-based system is that water consumption inevitability drops. “This is a significant environmental advantage, as it helps preserve our water supply. While research suggests our municipality sits on a large and healthy water aquifer, it is incumbent on us as stewards of the municipality to be proactive in our preservation of such an important resource.” The negative side of metering, Lynch noted, is the cost of such items as installation, public education, meter reading, administration and maintenance.

Costs to install a metering system were included in the 2012 capital budget, with a provincial grant of $417,178 expected to cover much of the projected cost of $625,768. While an RFP is prepared and ready to go for the installation, Lynch advised council that a financial model to assess costs “in order to set a rate for a metering scenario” is still needed. Lynch feels council needs that information in order to make a final decision on metering. “If a primary goal is to reduce consumption that will happen with meters. Conversely, a drop in water usage will reduce rates that are currently paying for supply and operation of our water system. Somehow, the rate and the operational cost must balance and would be predicted by a third party report and review,” the report concludes.

Silver finish - Nicole Hessels, a Grade 10 student at Norwell District Secondary School, competed at the OFSAA Cross-Country Championships in Brampton on Nov. 3. Competing against 266 of the province’s top qualifiers, Hessels finished second, earning a silver medal, in a time of 15:14. Hessels finished three seconds behind Charlotte Prouse of London Central. Hessels and Prouse raced previously this season at the Waterloo County and Fanshawe Park invitationals. Saturday’s finish marks their closest of 2012. Last year, as a midget athlete, Hessels finished seventh and ninth (in the 3,000m) at the OFSAA Cross-Country and Track and Field Championships, respectively. submitted photo

Saving seeds through the generations by Melisa Luymes MAPLETON Kim Delaney of Hawthorn Farms, who has been a seed saver for many years, spoke at the October meeting of the Mapleton Historical Society. She provided a historical view of the art and practice of preserving seed. All of the fruits and vegetables people eat come from seeds that have been saved, bred for certain traits and passed down from season to season. The term heirloom is used often these days, especially in reference to tomatoes, but what does heirloom really mean? It means the seed varieties are passed down through the generations basically intact, and these are self-pollinating plants that don’t easily cross with other plants. Heirloom varieties such as Matina, Siberian Red or Amish Paste are similar to tomatoes planted, both here and around the world for

looking for short-season varieties of vegetables and their translator introduced them to a bright-faced and kind-eyed man named Sasha, who said he had a tomato variety they would like. He left to get it, but three days passed and they didn’t hear from him again. They were near boarding their plane to return when the translator explained that Sasha lived up in the Altai mountains, a day journey up, a day to rest and a day to return. Just as they thought they would have to leave without the seeds, Sasha’s bright face emerged from the crowd and he carried a small package of seeds. The couple brought them back and featured his seeds in their 1990 catalogue. A few years later, Sasha was beaten and robbed in Siberia and when word got out through their magazine, gardeners across the country donated money to care for him and his family - 1,000,000 rubles in total. The variety has gone on to become one of the 10 top early varieties in the world, according to Organic Gardening Magazine and was sold in Australia as the “Best Tomato in the World.” Delaney’s talk emphasized the human stories entwined with the history of food. With every bite we eat, we are literally tasting history and and every seed saved is making history. Find out more at www. hawthornfarm.ca.. You can even try saving seeds yourself.

contained within each flower. To ensure that there is no cross-pollination of a tomato, Delaney simply ties a bag over the flower to protect it. On the other hand, cross pollinators like zucchini squash have two types of flowers on each plant. Delaney demonstrated how to distinguish the two: the female flowers of a squash plant actually have a tiny squash at the base of the flower, which will grow when fertilized. She described how to pick the male flowers off of one variety, cross them to the female flowers of another, label them and see what happens. Many seed varieties have been developed over the years, whether special hybrids made in laboratories or through gardening experiments with cross-pollinating varieties or through selection for certain traits. Over the years of using these techniques, our ancestors have made interesting changes to fruits and vegetables with regard to colour, shape and taste. Delaney described how she is still working with varieties to breed for certain traits. For example, she selects for sweeter carrots or perfectly pink radishes. Delaney also shared the story of how a well-loved tomato variety that she preserves and sells, Sasha’s Altai, became available to the world. A seed-saving couple from the U.S. were traveling through Siberia in 1989,

decades. With care, this generation can continue to preserve these varieties for the future. But many seed varieties have changed throughout the years as well. Hybrid corn is a familiar concept, but many other vegetable varieties have been developed or hybridized, though some are more genetically stabilized than others. Hybrid refers to the process of combining two different parent varieties to create a new variety. While the desired trait may be expressed in the first “child” generation, the seed of the “child” may have unexpected traits. This is why farmers don’t save hybrid corn. But why can the seeds of beans or tomatoes be easily saved and not corn? Delaney explained the two broad categories of plant reproduction, “selfers’ and ‘crossers.” Self-pollinating plants like tomatoes actually have both the male and the female parts

Short week works for public works MINTO – Public works staff here will continue working four-day weeks in the summer time, after Minto council agreed to make a pilot project involving longer hours and a four day week permanent. Public works director Brian Hansen, in an Oct. 23 report to council, indicated the experiment this past summer resulted in reduced overtime hours.

A comparison presented by Hansen showed staff put in just 185 overtime hours last summer, compared to more than 500 hours in each of the past two years, resulting in a saving of about $10,000. Hansen noted the longer days match better with the hours kept by private contractors town staff work with during the construction season.

GRAVEL ROAD

e c n a n e t n i Ma

W.H. Adsett, Publisher Chris Daponte, Editor Patrick Raftis, Reporter Wilma Mol, Office Manager Alicia Roza, Graphic Designer

During the wet seasons of Spring and Fall motorists travelling on gravel roads will encounter endless potholes. The cause of potholes is always the same; impacts of water. When the gravel is frozen potholes are created when water freezes and creates frost lenses which displace the gravel. In the Fall precipitation creates potholes when the gravel becomes saturated and forces gravel to move. Grading of gravel roads that are saturated will only place weak granular material back in the holes and ultimately will wash the gravel away completely. When this occurs, tax dollars are wasted on the loss of material and having to double up on the grading process.

While potholes are an unfortunate evil at various times of the year the only way to deal with them effectively is to allow the gravel road to dry enough to minimize the impact of saturated granular material.

EDITORIAL

Will meters work out?

Mapleton council is wise to tread carefully with the proposed implementation of a metered water system in the municipality. While on the surface the anticipated drop in overall water usage, allowing for conservation of a precious resource seems highly desirable, that represents only one side of the equation. As public works director Larry Lynch pointed out in a recent report to council, a decline in overall usage could also mean a decline in revenue, unless rates can be calculated to compensate. At the same time, installation and maintenance of water meters and additional administration will add to the costs. Municipalities are already struggling with ever-increasing costs to operate water systems in compliance with new provincial regulations, as well as a mandate to move to full cost recovery. If a move to meters results in both increased costs and lost revenue, that simply complicates an already tricky balancing act. While water meters have the advantage of putting a higher share of the cost burden on heavy users, that doesn’t help a lot if the result is everyone paying more just for a new way to get billed. While many municipalities are looking into the idea of metered water, few smaller municipalities have so far taken the plunge. Mapleton has already done much of the ground work for the switch to water meters. Costs to install a metering system were included in the 2012 capital budget, with a provincial grant of $417,178 expected to cover much of the projected cost of $625,768. An RFP is prepared and ready to go on the installation, however, at the Oct. 23 meeting, Lynch advised council that a financial model to assess costs “in order to set a rate for a metering scenario” is still needed. Lynch feels council needs that information in order to make a final decision on metering. It will be interesting to see if a report commissioned by Mapleton council on the financial implications and a proposed rate system will show if water meters can be viable in small town Ontario.

Letter to the Editor Donation appreciated Dear Editor: The Drayton Youth Centre would like to thank Mapleton Organic for donating to the centre 50 per cent of the admission to their Haunted Maze last weekend. The dark and windy weather only added to the eeriness of the evening as eager participants found their way through the maze to the Jolly Rogerwaving pirate ship. The path was dimly lit by the leering faces of jack-o-lanterns with monster music creating a per-

fectly spooky atmosphere. Hot apple cider around a campfire and tasty ice cream treats were a rewarding end to a fun time. Thank-you, Arwa deGroot of Mapleton’s Organic and Wendy, the sword-swinging pirate, for helping to support Drayton’s Youth Centre. Also, a special thank-you to the Mackenzie family, Gillian, Christian, and Mary, and Aaron Brown for helping with this event. Dahl Atin, secretary, Drayton Youth Centre

Maryborough Horticultural Society MOOREFIELD - Hannah Veld introduced an unusual and interesting topic at the October meeting of the Maryborough Horticultural Society - “lasagna gardening.” It has been described as a recipe for “raising your garden beds and lowering your labour.” Lasagna gardening is done on top of the soil or grass, wherever a gardener wishes to make a bed. Wet newspapers

are layered on top of the sod up to several inches thick. On top of this, grass clippings, peat moss, shredded leaves, straw, manure and compost are layered. Each layer should be moistened. In the early spring the bed is covered with black plastic so it can “bake” for several weeks. The first year Veld and her husband planted smaller garden vegetables in their “lasa-

gna” bed, then added more compost and leaves in the fall. This year they enjoyed a nice harvest of flavourful vegetables including tomatoes. In the fall they will add more straw and leaves and, next spring, “bake” it again for a few weeks. The Velds also “planted” potatoes on layers of wet newspaper this spring and covered them with straw. With

Listowel, Missionary play to draw FROM PAGE THREE LISTOWEL 2 MISSIONARY 2 Missionary used the first period to gain a pair of unanswered goals. Ryan Roth sprang for the first goal, and Curtis Bults sliced through the crowd for the second. Assists were earned by Tom Chambers, Dave Scholten, Matt Duff and Steve Slot. Listowel responded in the second period. Travis Kuepfer and Curtis Wagler sent Trevor Streicher away with the puck. A nifty move at the blue line gained Streicher a breakaway and a goal just inside the post. Listowel kept working hard and created a scramble at the net late in the third period. Curtis Wagler finished the play and slipped the puck under the pads of the netminder to tie the game. Assisted by Travis Kuepfer and Trevor Streicher. FLORADALE 4 BETHEL 1 Floradale began the game with a short handed goal late in the first period. Willis Martin and Nick Martin sent Mike Martin in on net. A rising shot beat the glove of Bethel netminder Derek Wideman for the goal. Bethel tied the game to start the second. Mike Veens bounced a shot off the goaltender’s pads. Brock Shoemaker passed the rebound to Mike

Seiling who buried the puck in the back of the net. Floradale took the lead again with a short handed goal. Dan Martin skated into a loose puck for a break away rush. A deke to the blocker side gave Martin the goal. Floradale strengthened their lead in the third. Rod Shantz

sprang Tim Freeman away for a two-on-one rush. Freeman slipped a pass across to Dan Martin who snapped the puck into the open corner. Bethel pulled their goaltender in the final minute. But a quick pass by Mike Martin gave Ryan Martin a shot into the empty net.

The Mapleton & Area Business Profile The Prescription Shoppe offers one-stop shopping experience in Palmerston

Gracing the Main Street of downtown Palmerston is the newly built, The Prescription Shoppe. But don’t let the pharmacy’s name deceive you. The Prescription Shoppe is a pharmacy plus so much more. The store celebrated its grand opening on Oct. 19, with raffles, prizes, refreshments and of course great sales and over 500 shoppers passing through the doors. Owner and Pharmacist, Sherif Hanna along with his wife, Heidi and staff have worked hard to fulfill Hanna’s vision of providing local and area residents with complete pharmaceutical care in a department store setting. In addition to home health care, compounding services, and ostomy supplies, the new facility boasts a com-

plete new line of upscale women’s fashions and accessories, “Passion for Fashion” and includes unique wedding and reception decorations, party favours, hair care accessories, toys, books and gifts for all occasions, plus home décor. With one step into the shop Hanna’s vision becomes obvious. The bright, attractive lighting, modern interior design and a welcoming atmosphere all contribute to the sense this is no ordinary trip to fill a prescription. “It’s very exciting to be able to develop this new business venture,” says Hanna and he hopes it will inspire other Palmerston businesses and entrepreneurs to take a second look at Palmerston’s potential. He also hopes his busi-

ness will encourage consumers to shop local. His goal is to keep exploring new and creative ways to expand his services in a customized approach. Not that The Prescription Shoppe is new to Palmerston. Located at 261 Main Street, the pharmacy’s original location was right next door but after having operated successfully for three years there, Hanna seized the opportunity to expand his services with a brand new facility and the chance to revitalize the downtown core. Hannah’s 30 years of experience as a pharmacist and businessman, assisted him in identifying the needs of the local community - working hard with the town to develop new business models that work. Hanna’s goal is to become a one-stop

Drayton wraps up 2012 season with Annie

A cheque was presented at the grand opening of the company’s new facility in Drayton on Oct. 25.

FROM PAGE ONE A rags-to-riches story about a determined young girl’s journey from a New York orphanage to the luxurious home of billionaire businessman Oliver Warbucks, Annie boasts one of Broadway’s most unforgettable scores, including Hard-Knock Life, Easy Street, N.Y.C. and the ever-optimistic Tomorrow. This production is directed by Alex Mustakas, who has helmed many large-scale musicals at the St. Jacobs Country Playhouse including this season’s Big Band Legends. Mustakas is joined by music director Michael Lerner and choreographer Gino Berti, as well as set designer J.C. Olivier, and lighting designer Kevin Fraser. The cast for this production includes 13-year-old Dominique Le Blanc in the title role. The precocious Halifax native was discovered through a video audition campaign launched by Drayton Entertainment. Le Blanc flew to Ontario to audition in person with Mustakas and won the role in April. Victor A. Young takes on the iconic role of Oliver

Young has appeared in numerous high profile productions including Rock of Ages, Dirty Dancing and Lord of the Rings in Toronto. Jackie Mustakas, who captivated audiences as the Wicked Witch of the West in last season’s production of The Wizard of Oz will play Miss Hannigan, the cruel matron who runs the dismal orphanage where Annie’s journey begins. Alongside Mustakas, as her unscrupulous brother Rooster

Hannigan, is perennial audience favourite Keith Savage. Rooster’s scheming lady friend, Lily St. Regis is portrayed by Melissa Thomson. Jayne Lewis, who played roles in this season’s production of Harvey, is Warbucks’ faithful secretary Grace Farrell. Seasoned Canadian actor Patric Masurkevitch takes on the role of President Franklin Roosevelt. Rachel Clark, Stephen Cota, Joanna Guistini, Kevin Etherington, Jill Harland, Sarah Harries, Sarah Matton, Chad McFadden, and Arthur Wright round out the ensemble.
