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! Find the answer below.

Horoscopes - For the second week of July -

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, time is of the essence with a pressing concern. Act quickly or you just may get passed by on this opportunity. Sagittarius plays a pivotal role this week.

SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, sometimes it may seem like you’re being persecuted, but you tend to be a little more sensitive and emotional than others. Learn to roll with the punches.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, things could get interesting this week when someone intervenes on your behalf and it has promising results. Use this opportunity to your benefit.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Acting in an irrational fashion is not the way to win friends, Sagittarius. Think twice before you do something that can be perceived as foolish in the days to come.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, you can’t move mountains all by yourself. You can accomplish a lot when you put your mind to it, but ask for help sometimes. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Petty arguments can escalate if you’re not careful, Cancer. It’s better if you keep a level head and push through the rough spots. Better times arrive for the weekend. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, take some time to make an important decision and then seek the advice of someone you trust. The decision you have to make this week is not one to take lightly.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 A big party is in the works, Capricorn. Although you may feel a bit nervous about hosting, things will work out just fine if you do a lot of planning. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, think carefully about the repercussions of a pending decision. This decision will impact several people and demands your full attention. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, go with the flow and you’ll find you will have a much better time of it this week. Scorpio needs a friend.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, if romance is what you’re after, it’s something you just may find midweek. Someone you overlooked in the past takes on a new light in your eyes. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 You’re checking things off of your to-do list very easily, Libra. Doesn’t it bring you satisfaction to be on top of everything? Keep up the good work.

Local Legends: McManus, Swick and Breit to shine at Elora Festival by Kelly Waterhouse

ELORA - It sounds like the set-up to a very peculiar joke. What do you get when you cross an internationallyrenowned Celtic guitarist of Scottish descent with the sultry, lyrically-haunting vocals of a prairie girl who grew up to become a singer-songwriter and a lad from northern Ontario whose guitar riffs and mindblowing solos have generated a fan following of some of the most recognized musicians of our time? You get the Local Legends show, one of the hottest tickets in town for this summer’s Elora Festival line-up, featuring Tony McManus, Gwen Swick and Kevin Breit. The show is aptly named after these three internationally-acclaimed musicians, all of whom call the village of Elora home. Locals and visitors alike will have the rare opportunity to see these three talented artists share a stage like never before, on July 22 at 8pm in the Gambrel Barn. These three musicians - neighbours, in fact - spend much of their time travelling to various shows, so this performance is a special opportunity to make music with their friends, for their friends, in a venue practically in their own backyards. The impetus for this event came from Elora Festival organizers themselves. Marketing manager Julie Denneny started a Facebook discussion, asking patrons of the Festival which local talents they would most like to see take the stage. The casual chat evolved into an overwhelming campaign that inspired Elora Festival General Manager Jurgen Petrenko and Artistic Director Noel Edison to approach McManus, Swick and Breit and set the wheels in motion. “I’m so thrilled that they’re all able to make it,” said Denneny. “I knew this would be a great opportunity for audi-

ences to see the outstanding, internationally-recognized talent we have that live right here, in our village.” It wasn’t a hard sell; it was an honour, all three musicians agree. “It takes a village to raise a child, and it certainly also takes one to put on a festival that is as great as the Elora Festival is in the scope and talent it presents,” Swick said. “The Elora Festival has tentacles that reach all across the country and outside it as well. It’s amazing that our lovely town is home to a festival that is so well known so far away. That’s the result of great vision by the festival itself, like Noel, Jurgen, Julie and other organizers who have gone before them, and the great support in the community too.” It’s good to be home. Summer is the season of festivals and travelling shows, and these minstrels spend a good part of their year on the road. The past year has been particularly exciting for all three. McManus made two trips to Japan; the first just five days prior to the horrible earthquake that struck Japan’s northeast coast, and second four weeks afterwards. “The change of mood in Tokyo was apparent as was the almost complete absence of tourists. The final concert in the city was very emotional; people were very grateful that I’d not cancelled,” said McManus. “In between the Japan trips I was in Australia for four weeks, for my first trip back there in five years.” Most recently, McManus was in Prince Edward Island for the Festival of Small Halls, and has a busy summer with several first-time events, including visits to Croatia and Slovenia, and playing the Healdsburg Guitar Festival, in California, an opportunity to promote the McManus signature model guitar by PRS Guitars out of Maryland. Then it’s returning to work

with Loreena McKennitt, whose album McManus played on last year. Somewhere in there he plans to record new music for his sixth solo album. Swick’s career involves lending her unique voice to the likes of 2011 Juno nominated Canadian folk trio The Marigolds, alongside the incredible Caitlin Hanford and Suzie Vinnick, and to the legendary harmonies of Quartette, featuring Cindy Church, Sylvia Tyson, Hanford and Swick. When she isn’t part of those collaborations, Swick is a solo performer and songwriter.

This spring, Breit joined singer and famed actor Hugh Laurie, of the television-hit show House, for a four-week tour of Europe, and will pickup the tour come fall. “This was a serious highlight of my 30-year career,” said Breit. “Hugh Laurie is an unbelievable character; so much grace, talent and incredible humour.” Sisters Euclid, Breit’s Toronto-based band with a cult-like following, is set to tour jazz festivals from coast to coast this summer. Needless to say, a collaborative effort between Swick, McManus and Breit should be a show unlike any other in the Elora Festival’s series, simply because it’s unlike anything these friends have done before. Given their mutual admiration and distinct talents, it will be a show in the spirit of true musicianship. “Kevin is such a different player from me - a much stronger improviser, for example,” said McManus. “There’s not much danger of redundancy. His playing is very angular and often the ideas are coming thick and fast.” Breit added, “I’m so happy to be up there with Tony and Gwen. Tony and I shared a stage at the Vancouver Folk Festival. I had a great time with my neighbour. We play completely different from one another, but I think this is a charming aspect to collaboration. Celtic meets … whatever the hell I do.” For Swick, the challenge to merge the sounds is exciting. “It’s a bit like walking in a different door to your own material. The approach is different; nothing I’ve done before. We want to have a bal-

a line-up of solo performances, enjoying her audiences as much as the scenery. “I love the prairies, being a prairie girl originally,” she said. “My mom and dad both grew up in Winnipeg and lived in many parts of Manitoba, so the drives, as well as the shows, were great.” For Breit, a short stop at home is the rest he needs for rejuvenation after a hectic year and a summer season that seems to be equally as intense. “Last year, I recorded with The Wallin’ Jennies, Oh Susanna, N’didi O, Ruth

“It takes a village to raise a child, and it certainly also takes one to put on a festival that is as great as the Elora Festival.” - Elora songstress Gwen Swick, who will perform with two other locals, Tony McManus and Kevin Breit, in the Elora Festival’s Local Legends show. “Over the past year, I’ve had a nice mix of solo shows, playing with the Marigolds, and Quartette. A particularly great moment for Quartette was performing at a beautiful rural church as part of the Indian River Music Festival in PEI. “It’s the only time we have ever listened to cows mooing during our sound check, and being served fresh oysters and champagne between shows,” Swick said with a laugh. “Quartette played a Christmas show out East too; that was truly beautiful and moving.” This fall, Swick returned to her native Manitoba, with

Moody, Lindi Ortega, Tomi Swick and Hugh Laurie,” he explained. “As an artist, I recorded a new disc with Harry Manx, called Strictly Whatever, and recorded the tenth Sisters Euclid disc (self-titled) and another disc with Stretch Orchestra, featuring Matt Brubeck and Jesse Stewart.” Local audiences will also know Breit’s work with fellow Elora natives Randall Coryell and Howie Southwood, plus Jeff Bird, of the Cowboy Junkies, who have formed a band known as The Potion Kings, set to release their debut live album this fall.

ance of solo and collaborative performances,” she said. “It does push me to try to have ready a bit of new material that might suit these two magnificent fellows. They get inside the music and play it out, performing musical feats that ought to be impossible.” The guitarists feel the same about their songstress. “I first performed with Gwen when I was 18 years old. She is beautiful and totally original; in a book of her own,” said Breit. McManus agreed, adding, “It’s taken way too long for this collaboration to happen. I hear people all over the country ask if I know Gwen Swick. We live on the same street so it’s about time we did some playing together.” It has been said there is no place like home, and these three are very proud of their community. “When I speak to other musicians abroad about Elora being my home, I am always met with two things: the gorge and the Elora Festival. It is a place renowned for it’s diversity and beauty,” Breit said. “So many incredible artists have graced the stage of the Festival and it is regarded as a great stop when touring.” Said McManus, “I think all three of us are very proud of the level of artistic energy in Elora and the Festival is a big part of that. It’s a prestigious event with an international reputation, so it’s great to be involved.” For tickets to Local Legends, or any other events featured in this year’s Elora Festival, which runs from July 8 to 31, call 519-846-0331 or toll free 1-888-747-7550, or visit www.elorafestival.com.

has stepped in with legislation geared toward making healthy eating more accessible in Ontario schools. The Ontario School Nutrition Standards were released in January of 2010, setting out the nutrition criteria for all foods and beverages sold in publicly-funded elementary and secondary schools. All schools must be in compliance with those guidelines by September. The new standards, designed to promote more nutritious choices on school

menus, divide into three major categories: - Sell Most: At least 80% of products sold must conform to those criteria. The foods are considered healthier options with higher levels of essential nutrients while containing lower amounts of fat, sugars and sodium. - Sell Least: Up to 20% of the food sold can be in that category. Those items may have higher amounts of fat, sugars, and sodium than those in the Sell Most category. - Not Permitted for Sale:

Some items will no longer be available for sale in schools. They are considered to have little nutritional value and are typically high in fat, sugar and sodium. As a result, the following foods will be removed from school cafeterias and vending machines: - all deep fried foods; - high fat pastries such as croissants, donuts, pies, and most cookies and squares; - frozen desserts high in sugar and fat, such as ice cream, frozen confectionary, and popsicles and freezies that are not made from 100% juice; - meats that contain more than 14 grams of fat and 480mg sodium per serving, such as chicken wings, bacon, ribs, hot dogs and pepperoni; - candy, chocolate, coated nuts, licorice, energy bars and gum; and - caffeinated drinks, energy or sports drinks, and soft drinks. Schools are allowed up to ten special event days per school year where foods sold are exempt from those standards (essentially one day per month in the school calendar). Catering companies and cafeteria staff that prepare food for schools and day cares are required to source nutritious products that fit the new guidelines and to adopt preparation methods that limit added fat and calories. In preparation for these legislated standards, several manufacturers that sell to schools have been making changes to their product formulations

or launching new products to comply with the new rules. The question is, will the new standards actually make students choose healthier foods? The new standards do not regulate what students can bring in their lunch bags. With the exception of special meals, lunches for elementary school children are typically packed by parents. Providing good nutrition can be a struggle for parents who need to balance acceptance and convenience. At the high school level, students can simply leave school property to get their french fry or pizza fix at the nearest franchise. High schools in British Columbia and Nova Scotia that have already initiated stricter nutrition policies have shown as much as a 30% reduction in cafeteria sales. Conversely, convenience stores in those areas have seen increased sales. Certainly, the new nutrition guidelines are an important start. Getting students excited about healthy eating is an equally vital step. Strategies to connect students with healthy eating could include: - building on curriculum and programs that involve students in healthy meal planning and food preparation; - starting community school gardens; - offering ‘healthy school’ incentives that sponsor special events or sports teams; - educating parents, guardians, and kids on how to pack a healthy lunch; and - having teachers set a good example.

MPP announces new Risk Management Program Mitchell PerthWellington MPP John Wilkinson says starting this fall, Ontario farmers will benefit from a new Risk Management Program (RMP). Wilkinson was joined last week by Carol Mitchell, Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, to announce the details of the program, which he said will help protect farms and ensure Ontario families continue to enjoy healthy local food. “Farming and agri-business drive our local economy. When this sector does well, our riding does well,” said Wilkinson. “Working with our farm leadership, the Risk Management Program has been created as a ‘Made in Ontario’ solution. I want to thank Carol and especially my urban col-

leagues for securing a brighter future for our local farm families and everyone who works in this vital and growing sector.” Farmers will be able to apply for support through the new RMP, the first of its kind in Ontario. The program, working like insurance, helps grain and oilseeds, cattle, hog, veal and sheep farmers manage risks beyond their control, such as fluctuating costs and volatile market prices. Ontario is also providing a self-directed risk management program for the edible horticulture sector. “On behalf of the Perth Federation of Agriculture I would like to thank both our MPP John Wilkinson and the Minister of Agriculture Food and Rural Affairs, Carol Mitchell for their work in con-

firming the details of the new RMP in such a timely manner,” said Brent Royce. Mitchell added, “We’ve delivered on our promise to Ontario’s farmers and worked with them to create a made-inOntario program by farmers, for farmers. The risk management program will give them the predictability and stability they need to stay on the land and continue to provide us with the good things that grow in Ontario.” Premiums are being waived

for the RMP program’s 2011 transition year. While applications for grains and oilseeds farmers will be available in August, the remainder of the program applications will be available this fall. Ontario’s agri-food industry contributes $33-billion to the provincial economy every year and provides jobs for 700,000 people. There are nearly 60,000 farms in Ontario and each farmer produces enough food to feed 120 people every year.
