ECA exhibit features Erin Perry, artist-in-resident ELORA - The Elora Centre for the Arts is welcoming the exhibit “These Things are Tired,” as well as the artist, Erin Perry, who will take on the role of artist-in-resident throughout the duration of her show - from July 20 to Sept. 15. A house sets the stage for some of the most banal and dramatic moments of our lives. Embedded in this routine are the seismic moments that alter a person’s awareness in a pivotal instant. These memorable, disruptive instants are the focus of a new collection of works by Erin Perry. Through association, combination, and exaggeration,

she reconstructs these crucial points in time into material re-tellings. Perry’s presence in the centre will be enable her to infiltrate the exhibition during its run, while hosting open studio days. Perry was born in Montreal in 1979 and currently has a studio in Toronto. She received her BFA from the Emily Carr University of Art and Design and MFA in Sculpture from the Rhode Island School of Design. She has exhibited internationally since 2003.

Tips to help tune-up summer first aid kits

FERGUS - Whether you’re on a road trip, at the park, camping, hiking or biking, summer is a great time to try a new activity or visit a new place. No matter what is on your summer activity list, it’s always a good idea to play it safe and pack a first aid kit to have on hand for those unique summer injuries. “Common summer injuries include scrapes, bites and stings, sprains, splinters and sunburns,” said Joe Cimino, pharmacist at Zehrs Fergus. “The change of season is a great time to take inventory and re-stock your first aid kit with items specific to the season’s hazards.” Cimino’s team recommends including the following items in your summer first aid kit: - various sized adhesive bandages to cover scrapes and keep them clean; - antiseptic topical spray, antibiotic cream or ointment to keep scrapes and cuts clean; - hydrocortisone cream to stop inflammation;

- oral antihistamines to stop swelling and itching; -tweezers and scissors to remove splinters, small rocks or gravel from scrapes, ticks that have attached to the skin or to cut bandages; -alcohol wipes for disinfecting scrapes and tools (tweezers); - a soft cloth to use as a compress and aloe vera gel or lotion to help relieve sunburn pain; - analgesics (acetaminophen or ibuprofen); - anti-nausea medication especially if you’re going on long car rides or boats; - latex-free protective gloves; - instant cold pack; - thermometer; and - any prescription drugs you or your family take, including an epinephrine auto-injector for severe allergies. If you have any questions or need help to put together your summer first aid kit, visit your local pharmacy and talk with the staff for your best options.

Spamalot musical comes to St. Jacob’s Country Playhouse ST. JACOBS - Monty Python’s no-holds-barred, Tony award-winning musical, Spamalot is now playing at the St. Jacobs Country Playhouse until Aug. 3. Lovingly ripped off from the landmark film, Monty Python and the Holy Grail,

Spamalot is a musical comedy that raises silliness to an art form. Retelling the classic tale of Camelot, this tongue-incheek production follows King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table on their infamous quest for the Holy Grail.

It’s packed with musical numbers such as, Always Look on the Bright Side of Life, The Song That Goes Like This, I Am Not Dead Yet and The Diva’s Lament (Whatever Happened to My Part?) Regular performance tickets are $40 for adults. Tickets

for preview performances and groups of 20 or more are $32. Tickets may be purchased online at at the St. Jacobs Country Playhouse box office or by calling 519-747-7788 or toll free 1-855-DRAYTON (372-9866).

FERGUS - While polar bears, Bengal tigers, and leatherback turtles are better known for being at risk for extinction, not many people have heard of the common five-lined skink, let alone know about its endangered status. Author Lisa Dalrymple, of Fergus, and illustrator Suzanne Del Rizzo bring this lesserknown reptile into the spotlight in their new picture book, Skink on the Brink (published by Fitzhenry and Whiteside). “It was obvious to me that a skink had to be the hero of this book, partially because

Stewie’s story of learning to love and respect himself as he grows up and changes is a story that I think kids will get, partially because the common five-lined skink is an amazing endangered creature of which so many people have never heard, and partially because the word ‘skink’ just tickled me,” explained Dalrymple. “I knew that a character named Stewie the Skink couldn’t help but be a lot of fun.” Also known as Stewie the Blue, Dalrymple’s skink is one who’s proud of his bright blue

LISA DALRYMPLE tail, but as he matures, his tail becomes grey. Unhappy with the change, the new look throws Stewie

into a low mood and while he laments over his old tail, a woodland friend helps him find a new perspective and regain his self-confidence and selfacceptance. With fun rhymes and a relatable theme, this latest addition of the Tell-Me-More Storybook series is accompanied with neat facts and activities for kids. Debut illustrator Suzanne Del Rizzo brings the rich details of nature and quirky characters to life using plasticine. Skink on the Brink was officially launched on July 6 in Toronto at Intergalactic Travel Authority (Story Planet). Dalrymple and Rizzo will return to Stewie’s home at the Pinery Provincial Park to take part in the Savannah Festival in Grand Bend with a reading on July 20 from 10am to 4pm. Dalrymple, who has been touring the book through local schools and public libraries this spring, is excited to bring the book to local audiences at Roxanne’s Reflections on July 27 from 11am to 1pm. Her local book launch will include a reading, book signing and activities for kids. “It’s terrific because a lot of the local kids have been my biggest supporters throughout this entire journey and it’s just so much fun to see this story come to life together,” said Dalrymple.

Everything is in gear for a weekend of action at the 2013 Fergus Truck Show FERGUS - As the saying goes, “if you got it, a truck brought it,” and from July 26 to 28, many of those trucks and the hard working people who drive them will gather at the Centre Wellington Community Sportsplex for the largest trucking show in North America. This year marks the 28th anniversary of the Fergus Truck Show, a highlight on the social calendar for many in the trucking industry, but also for the community here, which enjoys the spectacle and live entertainment spread out over three days. The trade show is an important opportunity for drivers and freight companies, suppliers and merchandisers in the industry to showcase their products and network. Organizers claim the event has over $150 million worth of trucks, trailers, equipment, accessories and more, on display. The main attraction for many visitors and participants alike is the Show and Shine competition. Contestants may enter tractors, straight, tractortrailer combinations, fleets, restored trucks and pick-ups. Each truck is closely examined by at least one team of three independent judges. The judges take into consideration the age and mileage of

Each judge separately scores each entry in the categories. All highway tractors and highway tractor-trailer combinations are automatically entered in the following complimentary classes: - Public’s Choice Award; - Judges Choice Award; - Best Displayed Fleet; - Best Light Show; and - Best Light Show Fleet The Show and Shine event

has the largest number of big truck entries of any trucking show in North America. Entry into the Show and Shine is $50 and each additional class is $25 (maximum two extra classes). The show isn’t all about work; it’s about fun too. With live music performances on Friday and Saturday night, featuring an all-Canadian line-up of rock acts, like April Wine and country acts, like headliner Jason McCoy, the night time is as much fun as the day. New this year is the Trucker’s Olympics, where

teams of two will compete in a relay race against the clock, in a series of outrageous and fun challenges vying for prizes. A tug of war competition is also scheduled to put truck drivers up against the Ministry of Transportation and Wellington County OPP. All proceeds from the Trucker’s Olympics will go to support the Special Olympics. The annual truck pull features truck and tractor pullers starting July 26. Early on July 27, the garden tractor pulls, stock classes

welcome children competing in the categories of 650lbs and 800lbs. The event goes on to include adult classes and moves into the modified classes. The highlight of the competitions is the Great Lakes Sanctioned Pull, beginning at 3pm on July 27. The pull will feature classes in the following categories: - single engine mod - pro mod diesel - mini mod tractors - super stock 4X4 - open pro stock tractors - super mod 4X4 - highway tractors - super mod 4X4 - two-wheel drive trucks There is plenty to see and do in an atmosphere that is familyfriendly. The grounds of the Centre Wellington Community Sportsplex features a play area, and MomsTown of Guelph is supervising a children’s play area. The on-site campground makes for a weekend of fun for all ages, and has made the truck show a vacation tradition for many. Recognizing the importance of community, the Fergus Truck Show acknowledges the community support it receives to make the show a success. In return, the show provides a fundraising opportunity for

th Annual

the 24-plus groups assisting in various functions at the annual event. In previous years, these groups have included the Alma Optimist Club, Arthur Optimist Club, Belwood Lions Club, Elora Mohawks, Fergus Devils Junior Hockey Club, Fergus Tennis Club, Highland Rugby Football Club, Melville United Church, Men for Missions, Centre Wellington Rotary Club, Royal City Ambassadors, Fergus Lions Club, Community Resource Group, Fergus Boy Scouts and the Fergus Curling Club. To date, the Fergus Truck Show has donated more than $600,000 in cash and donations to the various groups assisting and to the Centre Wellington Community Sportsplex. The weekend event has resulted in approximately $80 million in economic benefit for the community. The show has earned the designation as one of Ontario’s Top 100 Events three times since its inception. Locally, it was honoured with the Centre Wellington Chamber of Commerce “Tourism Impact Award.” For more information on events or admission, visit

Dynamic show in store for those attending Fergus Truck Show weekend

FERGUS - A big part of the Fergus Truck Show for truckers and visitors alike is the live music, and this year’s line-up carries on the tradition. Friday night’s headliners are Canadian rock legends April Wine. With more than 20 albums to date in a 40-year career, the band has a reputation as an exciting live show to watch, with a slew of hit songs that never get old. Opening for them are Silver Creek, from Ottawa, who consider their music to be a blend of “northern fried rock and soul.” Closing out the July 26 set is Ty Baynton and The Backroads Band. The group is a local favourite for playing a mix of country and classic rock tunes. Saturday night’s line-up is an impressive list of Canadian acts, beginning with Transit, who will tour the grounds of the Fergus Truck Show on the back of a flat-bed truck, performing in the Show and Shine area, in the pits and the concession alley. Transit will take the main stage on July 27, bringing their high energy rock-country music to audiences. Hayley McLean will be a hard act to follow, but she is the second of the Saturday night performances. Listed

as number one of the Top 10 Guitar Goddesses by Fender guitars, the Canadian musician offers up blues, country and rock sounds with a musicianship that leaves audiences across the nation awestruck. Headlining the night is acclaimed country music veteran Jason McCoy. The two time Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) Male Vocalist of the Year has racked up multiple CCMA and Country Music Awards along with achieving sales to earn a gold album. McCoy was the creator and front man of the highest selling band in Canadian country music history, The Road Hammers, picking up a platinum album, CCMA Band of the Year award, and a Juno along the way. The release of the album Everything, marked McCoy’s first solo studio album since 2001, and spawned the top 10 hit, “She’s Good for Me,” as well as the title track “I’d Still Have Everything.” Ending out the night is Moonshine, a local band favourite with its country and rock’n roll hybrid, they are a fan favourite. For a complete line-up of the times and more information on the bands, visit www. Canadian cowboy - Jason McCoy headlines the July 27 concert line-up.

McCoy shares the stage with Transit, Hayley McLean and Moonshine to round out the night.

Inaugural Trucker’s Olympics set for July 27 in support of Special Olympics



by Kelly Waterhouse FERGUS - Truck drivers can manoeuvre a big rig around obstacles, traffic and still get their freight delivered on time. But can they run an obstacle course with crazy activities in front of a crowd and beat the clock? Gord Baird of Challenger Motor Freight thinks so, especially if they are raising money for the children of Special

Olympics. Baird, together with coworkers Todd Hallissey and Leonard Taylor, created the Trucker’s Olympics, a fun event that puts truck drivers through their paces to have a laugh and support a good cause. “This is the first year we’ve come up with the idea,” said Baird, who agreed to take on the games on behalf of his organization. “We are a big company and we are community involved.” Baird said he has been representing Challenger at the Fergus Truck Show for 14 years, and when he was asked to create the event and run with it, he was excited. “The Truck Show has dwindled over the years, due to the economy,” said Baird. “Whatever we can do to help the drivers participate and give back to the truckers and the children, I’m happy to do it. My company backs me one hundred per cent on this event.” Baird said the Trucker’s Olympics, to be held on July 27, will consist of two-man teams performing a series of relay events including such things as a tire run, rolling tires around pylons, chainingup winter tires, log cutting and other challenges. Perhaps the most fun will be the “redneck horseshoes,” where drivers will face a toilet seat, with a mannequin seated on it, and the goal will be to “ring the dispatcher.” “We came up with a few ideas and tried some in our yard,” said Baird, explaining how the relay events were devised. “We’re still working out some bugs, but hopefully will be all up on it. We’re happy where it is right now.” The participants will be timed and prizes will be awarded for the top three times.

The winners will receive transport truck steer tires, two sets of Michelin and two sets of Goodyear tires. Second and third place teams will be given medals. Registration for the Trucker’s Olympics will take place at the truck show. Participation costs $10 per person, with all proceeds going to Special Olympics. “Leonard and Todd did the Special Olympics convoy last year, so we decided to put the proceeds of our event to Special Olympics this year,” explained Baird, noting that if the event continues, the goal is to pick a children’s charity each year to support. “We’ll have Special Olympic athletes there to help take part in the events,” said Baird, who hopes to make them feel included throughout the event. “We’re all out for the kids and we’re all out for having fun. That’s the main thing, to have fun,” Baird said. The event will include entertainment, a snack bar, raffle draws for trucking accessories from chrome shops and apparel companies, and a 50/50 draw for truckers to win a weekend at next year’s Fergus Truck Show. Later in the day, Baird is organizing a tug of war between truck drivers and members of the Ministry of Transportation and Wellington County OPP. Baird is hoping the Trucker’s Olympics will be a success, both in raising funds for charity, but also in creating that sense of community that truck drivers enjoy at the truck show. Ideally, he would like to see the event grow and become part of the tradition. “I love doing the Fergus Truck Show. I’d like to see it grow and if this is going to see it grow, I’m more than happy to do it.”

Group welcomes Caressant Care speaker by Bonnie Whitehead CLIFFORD - President Mary Mighton welcomed 12 ladies to the Merry Makers meeting recently at Jamesway Manor here. The ladies discussed the rally held May 31 in Harriston with the theme Laughter, the Best Medicine and encouraged more card players to attend Monday night card parties at the hall. Doris Jaunzemis introduced Lynn Jamieson, administrator at Caressant Care Nursing Home in Harriston. Jamieson explained there are three different types of nursing homes: privately owned, county run and charitable. Recently, the ministry of health has developed four areas of support for keeping people safe and secure and living independently in their own homes longer - visiting health professionals, personal care, home care, and adult day care. A retirement home offers a private room, minimum care, meals, a 24-hour attendant, nursing care, bath, laundry and housekeeping. In the nursing home, clinical nurses, registered nurses and personal support workers are on staff round the clock in a restraint-free environment.

MPP supports tax credit for food bank donations PERTH-WELLINGTON - Randy Pettapiece is strongly supporting a plan to give farmers a tax credit when they donate products to local food banks. “This idea would help bring fresh, local food to people who are struggling,� said Pettapiece, MPP for Perth-Wellington. “I’ve met with many of our local food banks across PerthWellington, and I know they are compassionate and dedicated. We should all support them.� On July 10, the Progressive


Conservative caucus proposed amending the government’s Local Food Act to grant a nonrefundable tax credit worth 25 percent of the wholesale value to farmers who donate excess agricultural products to food banks. “Perth-Wellington is the heart of agriculture in Ontario,� said Pettapiece. “Many local farmers are already donating food, but this tax credit would allow many more to help out.� According to a press release from Pettapiece, Ontario farm-

ers annually dispose of or plough back into their fields more than 25 million pounds of fresh, nutritious food. The food is healthy but, for cosmetic reasons such as size, shape or colour, is not chosen for sale by grocers. Many farmers cannot afford the additional costs of collecting, processing and delivering unsold produce to local food banks, despite the agriculture industry’s will to do so. As the PC deputy critic for agriculture, Pettapiece has long made local food a priority. In

May, he hosted a local food roundtable where participants discussed the tax credit idea. Participants also discussed the government’s Local Food Act, which Pettapiece believes is too vague as it is now written. “We need a bill that will make a difference by addressing farmers’ concerns and, at the same time, improving distribution,� said Pettapiece. “The tax credit proposal would make a big difference, and I strongly urge the other parties to support it.�

157th Listowel Fair July 18 - 21, 2013

Popular fair offers something for everyone by Chris Daponte LISTOWEL - For over a century and a half locals and visitors alike have flocked to the annual Listowel Fair. Rodger Schildroth, president of the Listowel Agricultural Society, attributes the fair’s popularity to its widespread appeal. Now in its 157th year, the four-day event offers something for everyone, Schildroth said. However, there are two events that do seem to draw the most attention. “Everybody loves the demolition derby,� said Schildroth. “And the tractor pulls ... we’re located right in the middle of one of the largest agricultural areas in the province, so people love the tractor pulls.� For kids, the midway, which runs each day, is also a popular draw, he added. “We’re expecting good crowds,� said Schildroth. “The weather should be nice ... as long as everyone gets the hay off, we should be good.� July 18 The fair will kick off as usual with its popular parade and ambassador competition on Thursday evening. Also on Thursday night, the opening ceremonies will feature a performance of the band Helix, in recognition of the fair’s “rock� theme.

July 19 Things pick up again on July 19 with the ever-popular midway, a garden tractor pull, and other activities, including a special area dedicated to seniors. July 20 The fair kicks into full gear on Saturday with contests, dis-

plays and numerous shows, including the 4-H dairy show and also shows for goats, heavy horses and the vintage farm show. The tractor pull and Iron Man Competition will also draw considerable interest on Saturday. At 12:30pm fair orga-

Spaling files for NHL salary arbitration

TORONTO - Drayton native Nick Spaling is one of 21 National Hockey League players that have filed for salary arbitration. Spaling, an unsigned restricted free agent with the Nashville Predators, is coming off a two-year, $2.1 million contract. Last season the centre/ winger, who is known primarily for his penalty killing and defensive play, registered 13

points (nine goals, four assists) in 47 games. The Predators tendered Spaling an undisclosed qualifying offer in late June, but the two sides do not appear to have been close to a deal. Arbitration hearings - during which the player and team present their cases - are set for July 22 to Aug. 6. Players can sign a new contract anytime prior to their hearing, but if not an arbitrator sets their salary.

Local lacrosse players make Team Ontario C. WELLINGTON TWP. Twenty members of the Centre Wellington Minor Lacrosse Association (CWMLA) will represent Team Ontario at the national level. CWMLA representatives competed in the full-day Team Ontario tryouts. After these tryouts, players were invited back to two combined tryouts for the final team selection. Each Team Ontario division will consist of the top 20 players in the province. The Team Ontario teams entered in the nationals range from Peewee age (11 to 12 years) up to U-19, with teams for boys and girls. These teams will play other teams from across Canada at various tournaments across the country, starting this month and running until Labour Day. “The amount of (CWMLA) Team Ontario-selected players shows that our organization is producing quality, elite athletes in the game of lacrosse, something our organization is very proud of,” said association spokesman Walt Woodland.
