Golf for a Cure: Frank Kelly Memorial Tournament hits 20-year milestone by Patrick Raftis HARRISTON - When a field of charity-minded golfers tees off for this year’s Frank Kelly Memorial Golf Tournament on June 4, it will mark two decades of fundraising to fight cancer through an event initiated by a group of local men whose lives were all impacted by the deadly disease. The first tournament, originally dubbed “Tee it up for Cancer” was held at the Pike Lake Golf Centre on June 22, 1994. The event was organized by Frank Kelly, Gary Thackeray, Mark MacKenzie and Brent Cochrane. Sue Kelly, Frank’s wife, doesn’t recall a lot of discussion about why they were putting together a cancer fundraiser, but Thackeray had lost his mother to the disease and Cochrane and MacKenzie had both lost brothers. With the help of family and friends, the organizers reached out to the community for hole and prize sponsors as well as golfers for the first event. They also called upon a former resident of Harriston, television and radio personality Neil Aitchison, to be the first celebrity guest speaker. So with 56 golfers attending, on what organizers recall as “a beautiful sunny day,” the foursome raised $1,576 at the inaugural tournament. Top team at the initial tournament consisted of Kim MacKenzie, Howie Pruden, Paul Hartung and Terry Wick, who earned first pick at the prize table filled with donations from numerous businesses and individuals. Tragically, just a year later, Frank Kelly was diagnosed with cancer. The disease they had banded together to fight had closed the circle and impacted all four of the organizers. “They were all touched by it. Everyone has been,” said Sue Kelly. Building on the successful first year, the tournament quickly gained momentum and the number of sponsors and golfers started to rise, along with the amount of money raised.

For many years, the tournament continued the tradition of providing a celebrity guest speaker. Over the years, the list included two-time short track speed skating champion Kathy Hunt, former Toronto Argonaut Bill Symons, NHL linesman Ron Asselstine and sports broadcaster Don Cameron. In recent years, speakers have included local residents whose lives have been affected by cancer. With the Tee it up for Cancer tournament in full swing, it became a regular yearly outing for many golfers, and over the first eight years organizers raised $24,161 for the Canadian Cancer Society. In 1998, Frank Kelly lost his personal battle with cancer, but that didn’t stop his fellow organizers from continuing the fight. The following year, the tournament raised nearly $4,000. In 2002 the tournament underwent a name change. To honour his memory and dedication to the tournament, the event was renamed the Golf for a Cure Frank Kelly Memorial Golf Tournament. The very next year the field was maxed out at 144 golfers and the number of hole sponsors and contributors also rose, along with the total dollars raised. The $7,000 mark was achieved for the first time. The 2003 event also featured a heartfelt message from Chris Kelly, who shared his thoughts on his father, noting in an e-mail from Vancouver that Frank would be “honoured the tournament now carries his name. “I don’t think Dad would want cancer to define our memory of him or for it to be the main thing we remember about his life,” Chris wrote. “I live two blocks from the cancer centre out here and I bike by it every day on my way to work. Seeing cancer patients used to bother me, but now I just think about this tournament and the many other fundraising events that take place all over Canada and that makes me feel a lot better. “Maybe someday, people

Cochrane. photo by Patrick Raftis won’t have to go through what most of us have gone through.” He added, “Dad was a funloving guy who loved to eat, have a few drinks, laugh, golf and was just happy to be alive. And a good way to honour all those who we’ve lost to cancer is to do just that - enjoy life.” By 2006, after 12 years on the organizing team, Thackeray stepped aside and Sue Kelly and her brother Dave Mallett took the lead, as they continue to do today, backed by a strong contingent of volunteers.

Other special events, such as a hole-in-one to win a car contest, or “Beat the Pro” competition have added variety, and profitability, to the tournament. Although 2011 was a good year for the tournament, another of the founding members, Brent Cochrane, passed away. “His contributions to the tournament and the community will be missed by all,” organizers state. Cochrane’s daughter B.J. is now part of the organiz-

start one year and on another occasion the last foursome had just made it back to the clubhouse when a major thunderstorm struck. With total proceeds from the tournament eclipsing $118,000 since its inception, organizers plan to keep the event rolling beyond the 20-year milestone and welcome new participants to join the committee. Organizers are now preparing for the 20th annual Golf For a Cure Frank Kelly Memorial Tournament, which is scheduled for June 4 at Pike Lake Golf Centre. “Back in 1994, Brent, Frank, Mark and Gary would never have imagined the suc-

cess this event would have achieved and the amount of money raised for the Cancer Society,” organizers note, commending the volunteers, sponsors and golfers who make the tournament come together each year. “Their dedication to the event and more so to the cause of finding a cure is memorable and rewarding.” While the slate of golfers for the 20th tournament was filling up fast, spaces were still available as of press time. To be part of the 20th annual tournament, or to become involved as an organizer for future tournaments, contact Dave Mallett at 519-338-2275 or by email mallett@wightman.ca.

The tournament continued to flourish and in 2009 raised over $10,000 for the first time. Sponsorships were at a high, which made the live auction and new silent auction more exciting. This trend continued into 2010, as the amount raised went beyond the $11,000 mark and a waiting list of golfers was now in place. Also in 2010 a new fundraising element was added, with the introduction of memorial pin flags that would be placed on one of the 18 holes to honour a family member or friend who had been taken by cancer.

She feels the opportunity the tournament provides for old friends to get together and golf for a good cause is one of the elements that has kept it going - and growing. “A lot of the people that golf have been in it since the beginning,” she said. While many of the participants travel to the tournament, most of them “have roots here,” she notes. Over the years, the tournament has been blessed with generally good weather. Cancellation was never necessary, although rain delayed the

Wellington unit celebrates Canadian Cancer Society’s 75th anniversary WELLINGTON CTY. This year marks the 75th Anniversary of the Canadian Cancer Society. The society was officially formed in 1938, but the seeds for the organization were planted back in 1929, when the Saskatchewan Medical Association formed the country’s first cancer committee. This committee responded to growing concern by doctors that people were not aware of the signs of cancer. By the time people consulted a doctor, their cancer was advanced and their chances for survival were decreased. Cancer committees in other provincial medical associations followed, and in 1931

the Canadian Medical Association’s National Study Committee on Cancer was formed. In 1935, the Governor General of Canada invited Canadians to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the coronation of George V by donating to the King George V Silver Jubilee Cancer Fund. The campaign successfully raised almost $500,000 by the end of the year. In 1937, the National Study Committee recommended the formation of the Canadian Society for the Control of Cancer, and this new organization was officially launched the following year. The name was changed to the Canadian Cancer Society a few years later.

Today society is a national, community-based organization of volunteers whose mission is the eradication of cancer and the enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer. To learn more about cancer, visit www.cancer.ca or call the cancer information service at 1-888-939-3333. Locally, the Wellington County Unit is involved in a number of services and efforts to support the Canadian Cancer Society mission. The unit provides support for people living with cancer, as well as family members and friends. They help people connect with others who have shared a similar experience

through one-to-one support services. Volunteer drivers are available through the unit for those who do not have the means to travel to local hospitals or regional cancer centres for cancer-related appointments. The Wellington unit has a number of wigs on hand for those who need them. Temporary breast prostheses are also available through the unit. The local unit offers information on cancer, risk reduction and treatment, and provides referrals to resources in the local community. To access services and information call 1-866-205-7951 or email wellington@ontario.

cancer.ca. The Wellington County Unit is involved in a number of fundraising initiatives, including Relay For Life and the Wellington Warrior Challenge. Initiated in 2012, the Warrior Challenge is an extreme survival race, involving a 5km run through an obstacle course. The inaugural Wellington Warrior Challenge held at the Cox Creek Cellars property south of Fergus on Oct. 20, raised over $50,000. The event will return to the Cox Creek location for another run this fall, on Sept. 21. For 2013, a spring challenge was added on June 1 at Mapleton Organic.

For further information on the Wellington Warrior Challenge contact Lorraine Skarratt at 519-8244261 or lskarrattt@ ontario.cancer.ca or go to www. facebook.com/wellingtonwarriorchallenge. Relay For Life is an inspirational, non-competitive, 12-hour overnight fundraising event that brings communities together to celebrate life and fight cancer. In Wellington County, Relay for Life events will be held on June 7 to 8 at Wellington Heights District High School and June 14 to 15 at the sportsplex in Fergus. Details can be found through the cancer society website.

Theatre guild casting for Christmas musical HARRISTON - The Grey Wellington Theatre Guild is seeking youth and adult actors and singers for the cast of an original Christmas musical. In mid-November, the guild will stage the world premiere of Ebenezer, an original musical based on the Charles Dickens classic A Christmas Carol. The

show will feature lyrics and music written by Mount Forest area musician Lindsay Thomas Morgan and will be directed by GWTG veteran Patrick Smith. A casting will be held at the Harriston Town Hall Theatre on June 2 from 2 to 5pm for children aged 7 to 15 (15 youth performers required). Casting

for adults will be held on June 3 and 4 from 7 to 9pm. Participants should be prepared to sing, read and move on stage. A CD player will be available for those who wish to bring music (no vocals on CD). Ebenezer will run between Nov. 8 and 23. For information call Smith at 519-338-5391.

HILLSBURGH - The Century Theatre Guild will present Patrick Hamilton’s play Gaslight, which many believe is one of the greatest suspense thrillers of the 20th century. The play is a psychological drama, set at the turn of the 19th century but with a distinctive 21st century perspective. Written in 1938, the play enjoyed a hugely successful Broadway run, and the subsequent film starred Ingrid Bergman in an Oscar-winning performance. It brought about a shift in the style of stage thrillers, preserving the old-time feel of the Victorian thriller, while giving audiences a contemporary look at the emotionally charged interplay within a family. Much of the play revolves around

its infamous gaslight, but in a distinctly contemporary vein it raises serious issues of family relationships and manipulation, resulting in a distinctly modern and grippingly theatrical story. “I knew the minute I read the play that it would ideally play in our theatre,’ said director Jo Phenix. “Its intimacy brings the audience right into the Victorian living room, and right into the confused world Bella inhabits. Even in repeated rehearsals it sends a shiver down the spine.” The role of Bella will be played by Brigida Scholten, who has appeared with the Century Theatre Guild a number of times. Bella’s husband, Jack, the character who has been voted by the cast as the most hated man in theatre, is played by Nick Forrow.

The detective, Rough, played by veteran Ken Noakes, supports and comforts, while forcefully bringing home to Bella the enormity of her danger. Rhonda Hewitson and newcomer Cindy Gushie play the household maids, one supportive, the other maliciously cheeky with an eye for the master. Keith Assoun takes on the role of stage manager for the first time. The play runs May 24 to June 2 at Century Church Theatre, 72 Trafalgar Road, Hillsburgh, with performances at 8pm on Fridays and Saturdays, and 2:30pm on Sundays. Tickets are $18 inclusive and can be reserved by calling the theatre box office at 519855-4586. For information visit www.centurychurchtheatre.com.

Appleyard will share the stage with Guido Basso on trumpet, Jane Bunnett on saxophone, Terry Clarke on drums, Joe Sealey on piano and Dave Young on bass.

Funds raised at Jazz in the Barn will contribute to the community of Eden Mills’ efforts to create a model of

sustainability, in the village’s efforts to become a carbonneutral community. “I am privileged to promote and contribute to the exemplary environmental advances my neighbours in the village of Eden Mills are making. They are a friendly and foresighted community,� said Appleyard. Jazz in the Barn will coincide with the annual Eden Mills Arts Festival, which takes place May 25 and 26. Admission to Jazz in the Barn is $150 per person, $1,200 per table of 8 or $1,600 for a VIP table of 8.

Conservation Simple renovation tips that can save money (NC)—Renovations aren’t just about updating the design and comfort of a home or cottage, they can also be a great way to incorporate better approaches and sustainable technologies that cost very little, but lead to big savings. It’s often hard to know where to start when considering a green renovation. If homeowners are considering a partial or full home renovation and want to go green, a good resource is www.cagbc.org/ greenhomes for a valuable list of resources, including local architects, advisors or contractors who are best qualified to help. Here are some simple tips to get thinking about renovating a space with an eye to saving – both money and the environment: - Often in renovations homeowners have the oppor-

tunity to fill uninsulated spaces to make them more energy efficient. To go green, consider rock wool or cellulose insulation. Both are available at most home renovation centers and contain recycled content, are made in Canada, and have the potential to reduce monthly heating costs. - The biggest single electricity user in an average gas heated home is the refrigerator. While renovating a kitchen, consider recycling an old fridge (many utility companies will pick it up for free) and purchasing an Energy Star fridge. Choosing a smaller size will also reduce the monthly energy cost. Compare the EnerGuide rating that is listed on each fridge before buying one – this will tell consumers which ones will save them the most energy and the most money.

- Reducing water use and hot water bills when renovating a bathroom is easy. Installing a low flow or low flow dualflush toilet can reduce water use by up to 25 per cent. A smart way to sort through what works best on the market now is to visit www.map-testing. com. - Installing the right low flow shower head, especially one that is 1.75 gallons per minute (GPM) or less, will save up to 30%. - When looking to replace or install new windows, look for those that are Energy Star rated for zone C or D. Homeowners could also consider installing casement windows, which tend to be less drafty as they age when compared to slider and double hung windows. www.newscanada.com

Green homes make a smaller impact on the planet and your wallet (NC)—Everyone is talking about how to green our lives: green cars, green travel, green products – but how do you know what is really making a difference – and what isn’t? Buying a green home or renovating to meet environmental standards is one significant way to benefit your

family, your health, your environmental footprint, and your wallet. Buying a home is a large investment and it’s important to know exactly what you are buying. Green home certifications like LEED provide a nutrition label of sorts, demonstrating in measurable terms

how a home incorporates efficiency features. Certifications also provide the added assurance that comes from knowing the final product has been verified and performance tested by experts. Better still, on average a green home will only cost between one and two percent more than a tradi-

tional home purchase. It all adds up to savings and a healthier home for the occupants. For example, a LEED certified home has been designed to maximize fresh air indoors, minimizing exposure to airborne toxins and pollutants, reduce water use by up to 40 per cent, and potentially

reduce energy use up to 60%. Less energy use means lower utility bills every month. An average green home saves $22,560 over 25 years, with many homes saving much more. If you are interested in finding out more about how to build or renovate a home to

be greener and healthier, visit www.cagbc.org/greenhomes. This site will give you a list of local contractors, tips, and valuable resources to get you started. www.newscanada.com

ENERGY

Conservation Heat and cool your home from the earth (NC) - As the mercury begins to rise, Canadians are looking for innovative ways to keep both the temperature and energy bills down. One of the best kept secrets to achieve this is the heat pump, a mechanical system that draws heat from the air, or from the earth and transfers it into the home or vice versa, depending on the season. Heat pumps work like refrigerators since they use fluids to transfer heat energy from one place to another. That’s why, if you put your hand behind a refrigerator, it is hot. The heat is all the energy that’s been transferred from inside the fridge to outside. A heat pump works the same way. A ground source heat pump that is connected to the earth through a distribution loop allows for a transfer of heat from under the Earth’s

surface to the interior of the home and, in the summer, from the home to the ground. So despite the name, heat pumps don’t only replace fuelburning furnaces or boilers; they can also act as air conditioners. Because they require no purchased fuel, geothermal (ground source) heat pumps can provide considerable savings over the life of a home. Modern heat pumps can provide up to 75 per cent of a home’s heating needs. The installation of a geothermal system is a significant project, however, which requires specialized training and knowledge. For example, the “loop” which carries heat energy from the ground to the home, needs to be properly specified and sized; if it is too small, you will not save as much money as

you could, because the house will be under-heated and it will have to rely on a backup method more often. Although the up-front investment can be sizeable, so too is the return on investment, providing many years of reliable, low-cost heating and cooling for you and your family. If you’re looking to invest in an environmentally-friendly system for heating and cooling a house or building, consider a geothermal heat pump. Be sure to consult with a licensed, qualified contractor to ensure that a heat pump is the appropriate solution. For a list of qualified contractors, visit the Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Institute of Canada at www.hrai.ca or call 1-877-467-4724. www.newscanada.com

Tips: Stop energy from dripping away TORONTO - Did you know the average family uses 360 litres of water a day? And of that, 220 litres is hot water. Here some easy ways to save that are free or low-cost: Fix leaky taps That leaky tap, the one that can be heard while trying to get to sleep at night, is wasting 800 litres of water per month at one drop per second. Fixing the tap is as easy as replacing a rubber washer that costs less than a coffee and it doesn’t require fancy tools - a simple wrench and screw driver will have this task done quickly. Use faucet aerators With a twist of the wrist, homeowners can reduce water consumption by 25 to 50 per cent per tap by installing a faucet aerator. Local hardware retailers will have a selection of models including ones with washers that don’t need to be replaced. Go low-flow Did you know that the relaxing hot bath uses about 75 litres of hot water - not so relaxing anymore. A five-minute shower with a low-flow shower head uses less than half of that and can save over 28,000 litres of water

a year. These units are easy to install and available in many models, including ones that can replicate a buyer’s favourite spa shower. Protect clothes and save energy Did you know that about 25% of hot water is used for clothes washing? Try using cold water to wash and rinse laundry. Not only will this save enough energy for 220 showers a year but it also protects clothes from fading and shrinking. Another easy way to save while doing laundry is to set the right water level to match the size of each load. Crystal clear savings

from the dishwasher Start by always running a full load. Use the light or short cycle for easy-to-clean loads and the energy-saving drying cycle for additional efficiency. Or, open the dishwasher when the wash cycle is complete and let the dishes air dry. This can reduce energy use by 10%. Remember time-of-use By using a dishwasher and washing machine after 7pm during weekdays or any time during the weekend you take advantage of off-peak energy prices. For additional ways to save energy visit www.HydroOne. com/SaveEnergy.

EnerGuide evaluation is the first step in smart home renovation projects (NC) - Before renovating a home, people often have a number of questions and concerns about making smart investments. How much will a new furnace lower the energy bill? Should homeowners replace the windows, or install more insulation? What options are most cost effective? Measuring the energy efficiency of a house before your renovations will help homeowners make smart choices when choosing upgrades. The EnerGuide Rating System (ERS) is a national

rating and recommendations tool designed to support homeowners and meet the needs of communities across Canada. An EnerGuide evaluation is the first step in smart home renovation and provides a roamap to help homeowners make the most energy and cost efficient choices for their property. An evaluation expert will test your house as a complete system by looking at equipment and construction together to see how the home’s energy efficiency may affect

the owner’s bottom line. A home is scored and compared to similar properties in the region, giving homeowners objective information to make informed choices. Since 1997, over one million homes have received ERS ratings. The benefits to the pocketbook, both short and long term, make obtaining an evaluation a wise first step in any home renovation. To contact a service organization for an EnerGuide evaluation in your region, visit oee.nrcan.gc.ca/homes.

TORONTO - Just 22 per cent of Canadians are doing everything they can to conserve energy, according to the findings of a national Energy Efficiency Survey. The online survey was commissioned by the Canadian Energy Efficiency Alliance (CEEA), Canada’s leading,



to conserve energy because of cost. - Only one quarter of Canadians have had an energy audit done, or participated in a rebate program. - Few Canadians are able to reduce their reliance on the car, despite the obvious benefit they see. - 81% of Canadians said that developing technologies that reduce energy consumption is very important.

“The results of the Survey tell us that Canadians are strongly motivated to conserve energy,� said McDonald, “but that they also need more information about how to conserve – and save money.� McDonald emphasized that when they have energy efficiency options that will save them money and pay for themselves over time, Canadians respond. She referred to the survey findings that the vast majority of Canadians have switched to energy efficient light bulbs and appliances. It also found that more Canadians than not have installed programmable thermostats, upgraded windows, door and weather stripping, or bought a new fridge. However, fewer have undertaken the more extensive steps to replace heating or air conditioning, improve insulation or buy an energy efficient vehicle. “The change to the home where there’s most room to improve the numbers of Canadians participating is in upgrading insulation,� said McDonald. “The challenge for industry and government is to make more extensive energy efficiency products and programs

more accessible to more Canadians,� she said. “That’s why our Thought Leaders Forum is so important. We’ll be developing a White Paper, created by conference speakers and delegates, on the most effective, practical ways of expanding energy conservation in Canada. Canadians want this information – and we’ll be providing it to them.� The Canadian Energy Efficiency Alliance (CEEA) is a broad based not-for-profit organization. It is the leading non-government, energy efficiency advocate in Canada. The Alliance was established in 1995 to respond to the lack of a coordinated multistakeholder effort to promote energy efficiency in Canada, leading to enhanced competitiveness and improved environmental protection. The Alliance works in partnership with manufacturers, utilities, governments, builders, labour and consumer groups, and environmental organizations to facilitate the adoption of energy efficiency measures in Canada. The Alliance is supported through fees and project contributions from members. For more information visit http://energyefficiency.org.

Eco-City Community Challenge helps Canadians save energy TORONTO - Canada wastes more energy than almost every other country in the world, which is why the Canadian Energy Efficiency Alliance is challenging consumers to change their habits and use less energy with the Eco-City Community Challenge.

In fact if you have one plant going to seed this year, you will have a patch next year. From then on you will have difficulty keeping up to it. It is a kind of mustard where seeds in the ground will likely be viable for many years. It is an annual but sometimes biennial, reproducing only by seed. It grows about 3 feet tall with small, white four-petal flowers in May and June. In the spring you may notice a rosette of kidney shaped leaves that are rounded but soon it bolts into a plant with narrow pointed leaves and a typical mustard appearance. One of the distinguishing features of this plant is the garlic odour of the leaves when crushed or chewed. It is of special concern in forests and tree plantations. When established it forms such a dense cover that the desirable tree seedlings and forest plants such as trillium, are smothered out. Although it is not on the Noxious Weed list, this is another one of the invasive plants that must be controlled as individuals, before they become a problem. If it is a small patch, pulling maybe the best solution for this year but there will be many seeds in the ground waiting for future opportunities. Don’t let it go to seed.

Cherrey enjoys ‘electric’ playoff atmosphere by Patrick Raftis TORONTO – When the puck dropped for game four of the Toronto Maple Leafs’ first playoff series in nine years on May 8, Drayton native Scott Cherrey was right in the thick of things. An NHL linesman since 2007, Cherrey was working the first round of the playoffs for the third consecutive year and drew the assignment for Toronto’s second home game. Thanks in part to that other famous NHL Cherry, broadcaster Don, there was a little more focus than usual on faceoff puck drops, largely handled by the linesmen. Cherry, in a recent edition of his popular Coaches’ Corner segment of the Hockey Night in Canada broadcasts, had ripped the linesmen working previous games for too frequently, and in his view unnecessarily, ejecting centremen from the faceoff circle. “Somebody’s got to get these linesmen under control … just drop the puck,” Cherry urged. Add to that media reports of Maple Leaf players and coach Randy Carlyle complaining the linesmen were allowing Bruin players to “cheat” on faceoffs, and many fans were watching the puck drops with increased scrutiny by the time game four rolled around. For linesman Cherrey though, it was business as usual. “The media is going to say

His assignments this post season have included a stop in Toronto for game four of the Leafs/Bruins series. what they want. We just try to maintain the professional standards that we’ve set all year and go out and do our job,” he explained. Cherrey said all teams have the ability to express concerns to an officiating supervisor for each series, but no special instructions were given to officials. “We’re just told to maintain the same standards that we’ve upheld for the entire season. We don’t change things for the playoffs.” Maintaining those standards has put Cherrey on the prestigious list of playoff

officials since 2011. This year, for the first time, he is part of the second-round officiating team. The number of linesmen drops from 22 to 14 for round two. As of press deadline, he had worked game one of the Chicago/Detroit Series on May 14. “Just to be named to the playoff team was quite an honor,” Cherrey noted. Playoff officials are named on a round-by-round basis, so Cherrey didn’t know he would be part of the second round crew on May 8, when he spoke with the Advertiser by telephone en route to Washington for game five of the Capitals’ series with the New York Rangers. Previously, he worked the lines in the first round for game one of the St. Louis/ Los Angeles series and game three between the Pittsburgh Penguins and New York Islanders. Cherrey described the atmosphere as “electric” for what was only the second Leafs home playoff game since 2004. “The playoffs are sort of the ultimate experience - your speed of play is up - we just have to make sure were ready for it when the puck drops.” Like the players, Cherrey is glad to be back on the ice in a lockout-shortened season that didn’t begin until Jan. 19. “It was a real roller coaster ride,” he said of the ups and downs of the negotiations that eventually led to a new collective bargaining agreement between players and owners. “It would look like we were going to play, then it wouldn’t, then it would again. “Finding a positive in a negative,” Cherrey said the late start to the season gave him more time to spend with his family. He and his wife Christa live in Kitchener. Their third child, son Kaese, was born in August. The couple also have a son Tyson, 9 and a daughter Katelynne, who is 6. “The positive thing was for me to be able to be around for Tyson’s hockey and Katelynne’s gymnastics and to help out with the baby.”

Spring goal - The Centre Wellington Ball Hockey Club (CWBHC) in Salem donated a portion of its spring ball hockey league registration revenue to the Power of Play park project, to help build an accessible playground at Stait Park in Fergus. Coordinator of the park project, Andy Speers, with son Asher, accepted a cheque from CWBHC owners Jackie and Jim Ranahan in the amount of $300.

Anderson honoured at Hall of Fame and Sports Awards TORONTO - Wheelchair basketball was in the spotlight at the Canadian Paralympic Committee’s (CPC) 2013 Hall of Fame and Sport Awards Ceremony on May 10 at the Mattamy Athletic Centre. Hot on the heels of its London 2012 gold medal performance, the Canadian Men’s Wheelchair Basketball Team took home honours for Best Team Performance, while star player Patrick Anderson was named Best Male Athlete, and head coach Jerry Tonello, of Toronto, who led the team to spotless 8-0 record, received the Tim Frick Paralympic Coach Excellence Award; on the same night that former Women’s National Team head

coach Tim Frick and threetime Paralympic gold medallist Jennifer Krempien were inducted into the Canadian Paralympic Committee Hall of Fame. Anderson, a Fergus native, is a three-time Paralympic gold medalist and is widely considered the greatest wheelchair basketball athlete of all time. Most recently, at the London 2012 Paralympic Games he led the team to its third gold medal in the last four Paralympics (a run of success that also includes silver in Beijing in 2008). He posted career-best numbers in London and finished tops in tournament scoring, averaging 25 points per game,

and first in total rebounds with 88. The Canadian Men’s Wheelchair Basketball Team went undefeated at the London 2012 Paralympic Games. It is the latest accomplishment in a sport dynasty that has placed the team on the podium at four consecutive Paralympics, including gold medals in Sydney 2000 and Athens 2004, and silver in Beijing 2008. The team has also brought home hardware from five of the last six World Championships, including consecutive bronze medals in 1990, 1994, 1998 and 2002. The team captured gold at the World Championships in 2006 and a host of other com-

petitions throughout the last decade and a half. “The entire wheelchair basketball community is extremely proud of the accomplishments being celebrated,” said Wheelchair Basketball Canada executive director Wendy Gittens. “We are grateful for the opportunity to recognize the hard work and dedication of so many outstanding athletes and coaches within wheelchair basketball, and the greater Canadian Paralympic Movement. We applaud the remarkable successes of all of the award winners, nominees, and hall of fame inductees.” For more information visit www.wheelchairbasketball.ca.

Here’s How it Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

Horoscopes ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, you don’t always have the answers when it comes to your romantic relationship, but that’s alright. There are no rule books for this type of thing; you learn as you go. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, your life has been relatively tranquil. However, you have been itching to do something fun and adventurous to turn things around. This could be the week for that. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 You may find that one of your coworkers is more critical of your work than usual, Gemini. Don’t take it the wrong way, as constructive criticism can be a good thing. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, things have calmed down considerably in your life. This week presents a good opportunity to take a trip that is geared entirely around your interests. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, remain modest about your personal and professional accomplishments this week. Now is not the time to show off. Be humble in your conversations. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, as inviting as a situation may look, appearances can be deceiving. You may want to dip your toe into the water before you dive right into something. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, this week you need to be extra cautious if you are in the middle of any business dealings. All it can take is the slightest misstep to turn everything around.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Do not follow the examples of others when they act irrationally to a certain situation, Aquarius. Although it can be difficult, you need to take the high road.

A Message From The Wellington County Police Services Board Volunteer Checks Every year Wellington County OPP completes hundreds of volunteer checks for the citizens of the County. This service is provided free of charge but requires a lot of personnel hours. The Wellington County Police Services Board is asking the public to ensure that any checks requested are picked up in a timely manner. Failure to pick up these checks could result in fees being levied in the future as the volunteer checks are requested.

Why does SWS ask residents to have materials out by 7:00 am? Attention Residents: Collection times CAN and DO change without notice. Drivers are frequently reassigned different or additional routes by Dispatch. Why does this happen? •

Construction detours or weather conditions may cause drivers to run their routes differently for their own safety and for efficiency;

• Mechanical breakdown means another driver has to incorporate remainder of an extra route; • Different driver covering for vacation or illness could have to collect their own plus additional route; • Adding a new collection area requires trials to find most efficient way to include area in that route;

REGISTER TODAY! Regular Museum Hours:

To ensure that collection can be done quickly and efficiently in the event of a route change, please set materials out by 7:00 am. Waiting for your “usual” time can result in your being missed.
