Annual Music Festival pays tribute to Underground Railroad, early black pioneers by Chris Daponte

MAPLETON TWP. - In a matter of just three years, it has become one of the most interesting and historically significant events held each year across Wellington County. And this year, the Underground Railroad Music Festival is expected to be even bigger and better. The third annual festival will take place on Aug. 13 from 12 to 7pm at Centennial Park in Drayton. “People are really looking forward to this - it’s a unique festival,” said organizer and renowned blues singer Diana Braithwaite. Held in honour of the Underground Railroad and the black pioneers of the Queen’s Bush Settlement, the festival was moved from Glen Allan due to construction planned this summer in the hamlet. But Braithwaite, herself a direct descendant of escaped slaves who settled in the Mapleton Township area, said the change in venue shouldn’t impact the festival in any way. “Judging from the last two years, [the festival] always had a really wonderful feeling about it. It’s really positive and upbeat,” she said. “It has really grown each year and it’s getting more popular. I expect a really good turnout this year.” The 2011 festival As usual, this year’s Underground Railroad Music Festival is open to everyone. Tickets are $30 for adults and $10 for youths aged 12 to 17 (kids accompanied by an adult are free). Tickets will be available at the gates the day of the festival, but Braithwaite is encouraging everyone to get tickets in advance at Those in attendance can expect to be entertained by some very popular and talented musicians and singers, including Braithwaite herself and fellow returnees Chris Whiteley (performing with his son, Jesse Whiteley, and their “Big 40s Swing Band”) and Chicago native Douglas Watson. Newcomers to the festival will include:

- Harrison Kennedy, who Braithwaite calls “our award -winning king of acoustic blues”; - North Carolina’s Curley Bridges, who is still performing R&B and rock tunes at the age of 77; - Kevin Breit, of Elora, who has several Juno and Gemini Awards to his name; - Mississippi blues singer “Miss Angel” Brown; - Donovan Locke, who Braithwaite calls “the next Nat King Cole crooner”; - The Mississippi Gospel Singers; and - inspirational speaker Pastor Tim Bailey, also from Mississippi. The festival will also offer a barbecue and refreshments this year, incorporating the theme of “soul food,” and those in attendance are asked to bring their own lawn chairs, in keeping with the intimate seating arrangements at last year’s event. Throughout the festival, speakers will also offer stories and information about the Underground Railroad, “how it really worked, and the rich history in the area,” Braithwaite said. She added audience members will be impressed with the calibre of speakers and performers, many of whom will travel long distances to take part in the event. “I’ve asked them to come up here just for this festival,” she said, adding the performers were more than happy to oblige. Festival inception Credit for the birth of the Underground Railroad Music Festival should rest solely with its main organizer. “Diana Braithwaite has poured her heart and soul into this festival,” Chris Whitely told the crowd at last year’s event. “We really need to thank her.” Given her connection to escaped slaves from the U.S. who settled in the Queen’s Bush area in southwest Mapleton, Braithwaite had always wanted to do something in the area to recognize that rich and

Important celebration - Blues singer Diana Braithwaite and guitarist Chris Whiteley are returning to the Underground Railroad Music Festival on Aug. 13. Braithwaite, a direct descendent of the freed black slaves who made up the Queens’ Bush settlement, is the organizer of the festival, which is held annually in Mapleton Township. Advertiser file photos unique heritage. “I think it has been a bit of history that hasn’t been really well known,” she said. “I’m proud that, as an AfricanCanadian, I have a link to this history.” And considering the importance of music to freed slaves, as well as her own natural abilities, the idea for a musical festival seemed a natural fit for Braithwaite. “I just thought, ‘Here’s something positive we can put out to the world and celebrate’,” she said. In what could be viewed as the festival’s precursor, in 2008 Braithwaite (joined by Chris Whiteley, with whom she has recorded several successful albums) performed several “Negro spirituals” at a special

told her they had a great time and loved the music. “It’s been very encouraging,” she said of the local support. The history Beginning in 1833, a stream of African American refugees, primarily freed blacks from the northern states, settled in what was then known as the Queen’s Bush. The settlement was unique in the context of other black settlements, which were established agricultural areas or urban centres. The Queen’s Bush was then an isolated area and during its first decade, well beyond the fringe of settlement. Reliable transportation facilities to the area did not begin to appear until the mid-1850s.

“I feel really proud and inspired by what they were able to do in the face of such adversity.” - Underground Railroad Music Festival organizer Diana Braithwaite, on the early black pioneers who settled in a portion of what is now Mapleton Township. ceremony in Glen Allan to unveil a plaque honouring the Queen’s Bush settlement. The idea for a festival continued to grow from there, and with the help of a $1,000 donation from Mapleton Township, the first event - at the time called the Traditional Music Festival - was held on July 11, 2009. Also providing in-kind support for the first two festivals were the township, Wellington County, the Ontario Black History Society, Wellington County Historical Society, Mapleton Historical Society, the Harriet Tubman Resource Centre and the Black Pioneer Descendants of the Wellington County Historical Society. Several hundred attended last year’s event, including some from as far away as Ottawa, Nova Scotia and the U.S., and even more are expected at the 2011 festival. Braithwaite continues to be impressed with the level of support for the festival locally in Mapleton Township and Wellington County. “I think people there feel quite proud about that history,” she said. Plus, locals who attended the first two festivals

Braithwaite noted the black settlers were among the first individuals to clear local land and start farms. The adjustment to subsistence agriculture was likely a difficult one for the settlers, most of whom were unaccustomed to cold winter weather. But the industrious settlers persevered, building schools, churches, roads and a vibrant community life, with Glen Allan, Hawkesville and Wallenstein as important centres. “I feel really proud and inspired by what they were able to do in the face of such adversity,” Braithwaite said. The first black migrants to the future Peel-Wellesley boundary area came from an ill-fated black settlement 18 miles to the south in Woolwich Township, near the present hamlet of Winterbourne, and known as Colbornesburg. It was founded in 1829 by Paola Brown, leader of a group of fugitive slaves and free blacks from Ohio. At its peak in 1840, the Queen’s Bush settlement was home to about 2,000 black settlers; almost all escaped slaves and immigrants from the

United States. It was the largest concentration of black settlers in Ontario, encompassing an area about 12 miles by eight miles, in what would become Woolwich and the southern portion of former Peel Township. By the 1860s, most of the blacks in what had then become Peel worked as labourers or domestic help for nearby farmers, or in one of the small shops or mills set up by white settlers. The Queen’s Bush settlement died out almost quickly as it began, after the government ordered the area surveyed and black settlers could not afford to buy the land on which they had settled. And when slavery was abolished in the U.S. in 1865, most returned to their native land. Yet some black settlers remained in Peel Township, with several continuing to farm well into the 20th century. A few descendants of those settlers still live in Waterloo and Wellington, but most are widely dispersed across Ontario and beyond. “Those family names have appeared in all different walks of life,” said Braithwaite. Among those names is Aylestock, the maiden name of her mother, Rella Braithwaite. The Aylestock family William Aylestock and Minnie Lawson both grew up on farms in the Queen’s Bush settlement near Glen Allan. William was the only child on his 200 acre farm and Minnie was one of 17 children. The two eventually married and had eight children. After marriage, they stayed a short period in the Queen’s Bush and lived near several German families. The Germans apparently referred to the Aylestocks as good neighbours and they often helped each other when the fields had to be threshed. After threshings, the story goes, the men would visit the Aylestocks to enjoy some of Minnie’s famous pies. William and Minnie’s first five children were born in Glen Allan, and the last three were born in the hamlet of Lebanon (also in Mapleton Township), where the Aylestocks owned seven and a half acres. William worked in construction and also helped on other farms. The accomplishments of some of the Aylestock children are quite extraordinary. Addie Aylestock was the

eldest child. In 1951, she became the first ordained black woman in Canada. She remained involved with the church until she passed away in 1998. Today, a plaque in her honour hangs in the Mapleton Township council chamber. Lloyd Aylestock was an engineer and the first black to be hired at the Avro Aircraft plant in Toronto in 1938. Frank Aylestock was a WWII veteran who later taught electronics. Rella Braithwaite (nee Aylestock), at age 12 was the only black student attending Listowel High School. She enjoyed an accomplished career as a writer, journalist and civil rights activist. ‘Coming home’ Returning to the Mapleton Township area for the first time can be an emotional journey for descendents of freed slaves and Queen’s Bush pioneers. At last year’s Underground Railroad Music Festival, Virginia Adamson recounted that exact experience. “I was overwhelmed by a strong sense of pride and the feeling of coming home,” Adamson said of her first visit to the area in 2008. Braithwaite said she often has similar feelings when she visits the area where her ancestors first settled in search of a better life. In recognition of that connection, the 2011 festival will have a welcome table for descendents of the Underground Railroad and Queen’s Bush settlement, and the list will be read aloud to recognize those individuals. “It’s a really emotional experience,” Braithwaite said. “Apart from the music, that experience is going to be really something, too.” But she stressed the festival is an important event for all locals and visitors, including those with no personal connection whatsoever to the Underground Railroad or early black settlers. “It’s definitely a festival for everyone - it’s very inclusive,” she said. “It’s a celebration ... There’s nothing sad about it. It’s about celebrating and being proud and remembering things and making history.” For more information about the Underground Railroad Music Festival, visit www. and click on “Music Festival.” - with files from Guelph Museums and Stephen Thorning

Canada, Korea breakthrough in restoring beef market access OTTAWA - Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz and International Trade Minister Ed Fast recently announced a breakthrough in restoring access to the lucrative South Korean beef market. Canada and South Korea will now work to finalize the science based agreement to export Canadian beef under 30 months of age back into South Korea - the last key Asian market still imposing a trade ban on Canadian beef. “After almost a decade, Canadian beef producers are

on track to gain access to the lucrative South Korean market, making our industry and entire economy stronger,” said Ritz. “The high quality of our beef products combined with the effectiveness and transparency of Canada’s control system is precisely the reason why South Korea can be confident in the safety of Canada’s beef.” Fast added, “South Korea, as one of Canada’s most important trade and investment partners in the Asia-Pacific region, offers tremendous opportunity for workers and

businesses in important sectors across Canada. This important step towards restored access is welcome news. On behalf of Canadian producers we will be closely monitoring South Korea’s domestic process.” Canada and South Korea resolved technical issues and will continue to collaborate until the agreement is fully implemented. South Korea began its domestic process of submitting the proposed import health requirements, which includes public consultations and legislative approval, on

June 28. Canadian and South Korean officials will continue to work to ensure the remaining elements of the process are completed. The Canadian Beef Export Federation (CBEF) estimated that the agreement could mean more than $30-million for Canadian producers by 2015. In 2002, South Korea was Canada’s fourth biggest beef market and remains a key market for the Canadian agriculture sector. Ritz has travelled to South

Canadians have a sweet deal on food, says FCC REGINA – A new survey sponsored by Farm Credit Canada (FCC) shows that despite a preference for buying Canadian food products, many consumers do not put their money where their mouth is. Yet Canadians are privileged to pay some of the lowest prices in the world for safe, high-quality food. According to the spring survey, 95% of respondents agree buying locally grown food is a priority or a preference; but, only 43% are willing to pay more for food grown locally. Similarly, 96% indicate a preference for purchasing Canadian products, yet only 41% will to pay more for them. “I’m not surprised by the survey results,” said FCC senior agriculture economist Jean-Philippe Gervais. “Purchasing decisions are often driven by price. What Canadians might not realize is that average Canadian household spending on food as a portion of the total household budget has decreased from 19% in the 1960s to 10% in 2009, according to statistics from Statistics Canada

and the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development.” If respondents have a personal connection to agriculture or have visited a farm, purchasing locally grown or Canadian products is more likely to be a priority, and they are also willing to pay more for them. Those respondent knows someone who owns or works on a farm. “In Canada, we have a sweet deal,” said FCC president Greg Stewart. “We’re fortunate that our farmers and food processors produce safe, high-quality food at some of the lowest prices in the world. I think that it would benefit the industry and our customers if the public knew more about the business of agriculture, and recognized that agriculture is big, dynamic and complex. This industry truly matters to the Canadian economy and to Canadians.” This country’s agriculture industry employs one in eight people and feeds people around the world through exports to nearly 200 countries. Other survey highlights: - Consumers from Ontario

were more likely to state that purchasing locally grown and Canadian products (46% and 47% respectively) is a priority and they are willing to pay more for them compared to consumers across other provinces. - If annual income was greater than $100,000, respondents were more likely to indicate that purchasing locally grown products (53%) and Canadian products (49%) is a priority and that they are willing to pay more. - Shoppers in Saskatchewan and Manitoba (66%) were more likely than others to state that they like purchasing Canadian products, but are unwilling to pay more for them compared to other respondents. “FCC is deeply committed to the success of Canadian agriculture and intends to do more work to help educate the public about the industry,” Stewart said. The survey ran from March 8 to 10 online and was conducted among a sample of 2,015 Canadians who are Angus Reid forum panel members. The margin of error on the full

South Korea, Canada continued to negotiate a possible bilateral settlement that would provide commercially viable access to South Korea. With the agreement achieved with South Korea, Canada will formally request a suspension of the ongoing WTO panel proceedings once South Korea submitted the import health requirements for public consultation on June 28, with remaining steps to take place in the coming months.

Korea twice to push for the removal of the trade barrier by delivering a strong message that Canada maintains a “controlled BSE risk” status by the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) allowing safe trade of beef. After Canada’s numerous attempts to negotiate access to South Korea for Canadian beef, Canada requested the establishment of a WTO panel in August 2009. Although confident in its WTO case against

Ask, Listen, Recommend Luisa Del Rosario, owner of Luisa’s Draperies & Interiors Ltd. has her company’s mission statement rooted in the ‘golden rule’. In a nutshell, make your product the way you would like it made for yourself. When learning her trade as a seamstress, in post-war Italy, the instructor would throw imperfect products out the second story window of the workroom onto the street below. The theatrics were to encourage excellence and respect for the process in the designing and hand-making of dresses. In 1969, with her instructor’s philosophy adopted and skills developed, she decided to start a business designing and sewing custom window treatments for the residential market in Canada. Along side Luisa is her daughter Paula, who has always had a knack for colour arrangement and customer relations. A simple phrase like ‘ask, listen, recommend’ keeps the needs of the customer top-of–mind and has gained Paula a reputation for offering solutions that are unique to the individual she’s assisting, in a professional

The Fergus Elora District Soccer [FEDS] under 15 boys select soccer team competed in the annual Scenic City Soccer Tournament in Owen Sound on the weekend of July 16 and 17. They were victorious over Owen Sound, Guelph, and Waterloo in regular tournament matches with only one loss to Stratford. They faced Stratford in the finals and emerged as tournament champions, defeating Stratford by 1-0. It was a team effort with the combination of strong offensive players, tireless defencemen and the league’s top goal keeper, Jacob McFadzean. The winning goal came from a perfect feed from our midfield to Nick Bissonnette who, with a burst of speed, got past Stratford’s defense and tapped the ball into the net. Other goal scorers in the tournament were Mark Patton, Nick Stubbington, Jacob McFadzean, Lorenzo DeFenis and Ben Flewelling. Craig Dyer and Marty Stubbington are the proud coaches.

1,000 trees, more than one-fifth of the town’s total. Wellington North Township had only 13 people obtaining trees from the county program, but it led all municipalities in the number of trees private landowners planted. There were 12,210 trees provided to individuals there, with one landowner taking 10,000. Puslinch Township had a dozen landowners take a total of 5,870 trees. One landowner took 3,000, and another got 1,500. Mapleton Township took 4,790 trees, with one of the eight landowners there getting 2,800, and another 900. Minto had one landowner take 200 trees. All together, individual landowners planted 41,010




trees through the Green Legacy program. Each municipality was offered 5,000 trees, and Centre Wellington, Erin, Puslinch, Guelph-Eramosa, and Mapleton each took that number, while Wellington North accepted 4,920, and Minto got 4,600. That brought the total municipal tree planting rate to 34,520. The Green Legacy program also works with schools to do tree planting. Wellington North students planted 5,000, and Minto and Erin were runners up, with students there planting 3,000 each. Guelph-Eramosa students planted 1,500, Mapleton students planted another 920 trees, and Centre Wellington students planted 350.

Guelph-Eramosa was the only municipality that planted with other groups, and that effort saw 5,000 more trees in the ground. All told, municipalities across the county accepted 95,800 trees from the Green Legacy program in total. As well, Conservation Authorities took large numbers: - 8,790 for Halton; - 6,100 for Credit Valley; - 33,950 for Grand River. After the trees were distributed to all those who requested them, the county then handed out 8,480 surplus trees. Another 7,500 were kept for potted stock. The grand total of trees produced for the program this year was 160,620.

ENTERTAINMENT REVIEW: Murder at the Best Western a terrific screwball comedy by David Meyer ST. JACOBS - Drayton Entertainment introduced a hot, nutty comedy on the hottest day of the year. Murder at the Best Western opened on July 21 and an appreciative audience lapped up everything offered, including Neil Aitchison, the only speaker who can make the reading of the sponsors’ list entertaining. And then the play began, with howls of laughter. It is the late 1970s, and as director Bob Lourmann wrote in his notes, everyone had gone from drugs to self actualization - but the hangover was evident. Meet three screwballs in a love triangle that threatens to become a straight line or, even worse, a square. Stephanie McNamara plays Arlene Miller, a kook who has grown while her husband stagnated. She has gone from reading magazines to, gasp, books. She believes they aided her thinking processes, but the cliché about a little knowledge

being a dangerous thing is true in her case. She is having an affair with dentist Mitchell Lovell, played by J. Sean Elliott, who is not only a skirt chaser, but dresses worse than Herb Tarlick, the salesman of WKRP TV fame. Costume designer Jessica Bray deserves full marks for daring in his costumes. Of course he and Arlene are meeting at the Best Western (a story in itself for this production) to kill Arlene’s husband, Paul Miller. He is an impeccably dressed used car salesman with a cynical world view that belies everything that happened in the world in the previous 15 years. Lovers being killers can actually be quite funny, particularly with the waffling Arlene and Mitchell, who is family dentist to both Millers. The lovers decide the best course is to have Paul Miller give his wife a divorce. If he refuses, they will kill him. What ensues, of course, is not only predictable, but wor-

thy of the Keystone Kops. The physical comedy of the three actors is superb and timing is down to a science. We did not find a missed line or mistimed movement; a rare thing even for professionals on opening night. It seems only right that after Paul’s murder gets botched, Arlene decides to kill Mitchell for cheating - and even manages to elicit the aid of her soon-to-be-ex husband. Along the way, we find world views that seem not only dated to the 1970s, but hilariously so. Paul’s comparison of sex to baseball plays was particularly hilarious, especially when he announces, as a grand finale, “Then, it’s football season?!” It is not giving anything away to note that in the final act, both men decide to kill Arlene. We already mentioned the plot here is fairly predicable. But authors Ron Clark and Sam Bobrick have just enough tricks up their sleeves that there is a final twist or two in the

Love triangle - Jonathan Whittaker, Stephanie McNamara and J. Sean Elliott star in Murder at the Best Western, now playing at the St. Jacobs Country Playhouse. submitted photo last scenes to keep everyone satisfied. All three actors in this comedy were superb and very convincing, and we saw a rare standing ovation for them at the

end of the evening. Those were once the norm - in the 1970s - but audiences have become tougher these days. Murder at the Best Western runs with eight weekly perfor-

mances until Aug. 7 at the St. Jacobs Country Playhouse, and tickets are already 75% sold. Call 519-747-7788 or toll free at 1-855-272-9866 for tickets.

Award-winning Elvis tribute artist brings show to local theatre on Aug. 6 HARRISTON - Elvis Presley scored an incredible number of smash hits during his career from the 1950s to the 1970s, including Jailhouse Rock, Hound Dog, Don’t Be Cruel and Can’t Help Falling in Love, among many other fan favourites. Due to his massive popularity and charisma, Elvis also gained famed as a movie star and is remembered as both a

musical and cultural icon. On Aug. 6 at 8pm, the music and life of Elvis Presley will be celebrated in a special tribute show hosted at the Harriston Town Hall Theatre. Elvis: The King Returns stars Gino Monopoli in the title role, backed by the amazing Memphis Cats Band, and features 25 hit songs from the career of the music legend. Monopoli is widely regard-

ed as one of the most internationally acclaimed Elvis tribute artists on the circuit today. He’s been awarded with numerous prestigious titles including Collingwood Grand Champion. He has performed in Las Vegas and Memphis, and was featured on CNN, ABC, NBC, BBC and the Bravo television network. The Harriston show will be divided into two parts, with


the first portion of the show dedicated to Elvis’ early rock and roll career, with songs such as That’s Alright Mama, All Shook Up and Love Me. The second half features the latter portion of his career, including hits such as Burning Love and Are You Lonesome Tonight. Monopoli performs all the songs with lots audience interaction.

“I’ve heard a lot of great things about the audiences in Harriston, and I know the band is gonna be rockin’ so I’m really looking forward to this show,” Monopoli said recently. He also noted the Aug. 6 show includes Jim Yorfido on lead guitar, a highly-regarded musician best known for his amazing Johnny Cash tribute. “I’m looking forward to hearing Jim sing a couple of

Johnny Cash numbers at my Elvis show, he’s got an amazing voice, and it’ll be a real bonus for the Harriston fans,” said Monopoli. Tickets for this Elvis show are on sale now for only $20.

ENTERTAINMENT Indigo Riff brings Sensational Jazz to river for Sensational Elora fundraiser by Kelly Waterhouse ELORA - Sultry sounds of great live music down by the cool river - that’s what local musicians David Atkinson and Karyn Kirkwood, of the band Indigo Riff, are hoping will draw people to the Sensational Jazz event on Aug. 6. The event is a fundraiser for the annual autumn Sensational Elora festival. Indigo Riff, featuring Kirkwood on vocals, with Atkinson on stand-up bass, along with Bob McFee on piano and Dean Macdonald on drums, has just released its debut CD, In Love With Love. With a diverse sound all of their own, yet classically reminiscent of old standards from a bygone era, the album seems to be, as one of its song states, One Stop Shopping. Indigo Riff’s sound comes from four years together, with a commitment to weekly rehearsals that involved having Macdonald, from Oshawa, and McFee, from London, driving up to the Guelph area to meet Kirkwood and Atkinson. “They do the drive because they are infatuated with music. It’s a real passion for us,” explained Atkinson. That passion results in a unique jazz sound that isn’t actually jazz at all, but a culmination of Latin beats, old school blues and jazz rhythms - or as the band would describe

it, an “Indigo Riff” sound. “I think after four years we’ve narrowed things down to our own sound, so now we’re creating songs that represent just the four us,” said Kirkwood. “We’re not trying to sound like anybody and we feel a sense of accomplishment for not being like anybody else.” The natural evolution of the band’s music was to take the next big step and record its debut album. In Love With Love is the result of four days of recording and two and a half days of mixing in April 2011 at the prestigious Canterbury Music studio in Toronto, a dream come true for the band. “We chose this studio because it has an amazing reputation, but also we wanted an acoustic grand piano to give us that airy, jazzy sound,” said Atkinson. Added Kirkwood, “It was an ambitious project. We recorded 12 cuts, all original.” Atkinson agreed. “We may have bitten off more than we could chew, but we’re glad we didn’t know that or maybe we wouldn’t have done it,” he said. “It was a great exercise to manage it all ourselves. There is a certain sense of pride in that. But we had great support with Jeremy Darby, our record engineer and mixer.”

‘Sensational’ event - Indigo Riff’s Sensational Jazz fundraiser concert will take place on Aug. 6 in Elora. According to Kirkwood, the group worked well together. “We were very collaborative in the music-making process,” she said. “And that helped us shape this album together. We think of it as smooth or urbane.” All the songs on the album were written by Kirkwood or Atkinson, except Caffine, which was stirred up by McFee, and Brown Dog Blues, on which co-writer Steve Wilson

shares the writing credit. “I want people to think of the old gin-joints, martinis and long cigarettes,” Kirkwood said of the album’s sound. Atkinson agreed, saying, “Think sophistication, sassiness, a little risqué. That’s the band’s persona.” The hope is this album will open them up to new audiences and more opportunities to showcase their stage show they often play small, intimate

Fiddling around for the 61st time in Shelburne SHELBURNE - The 61st Canadian Open Old Time Fiddle Championship takes place here from Aug. 3 to 7.

On Aug. 4 at 7:30pm, the Rotary Club of Shelburne welcomes back eight time Canadian Open Old Time Fiddle Champion and four time Canadian Grand Masters Fiddle Champion Louis Schryer. Schryer has been a judge in Shelburne several times, and

and we have a little motif in every one of our songs,” he said. Indigo Riff’s performance at the Sensational Jazz fundraiser will also include fresh food prepared by Mill Street Bakery and Bistro, garden art and cool drinks. And it’s all for a cause the band is proud to support. “Elora has always been very good to us,” said Kirkwood. “We had a long-standing gig at the Elora Mill. We’ve done events with the Elora Centre for the Arts, and have been on the bill for Sensational Elora before. It’s wonderful to be invited to play this event, in a spectacular garden venue.” Tickets for the fundraiser are $30 in advance or $35 at the gate.

Local wins coveted arm wrestling honour by Chris Daponte MOOREFIELD - The medical experts who told Tyler Robinson’s parents their son would never walk may be feeling a bit silly right about now. The 21-year-old, who was born with cerebral palsy, has overcome countless obstacles and just last weekend he was named the 2011 Rookie of the Year by the Ontario Armwrestling Association (OAA). Robinson has had a passion for arm wrestling since public school, but the Moorefield resident never really had a chance to truly explore the sport until about a year ago. “I always liked arm wrestling - since I was a kid,” Robinson told the Wellington Advertiser. His father, Les Robinson, said Tyler’s affinity for the sport seemed to start after he first watched Over the Top, the 1987 film starring Sylvester Stallone.

Les noted Harriston Havoc team members have welcomed his son with open arms and have helped his training immensely. Tyler has greatly improved his balance and strength and he continues to work out at home. “I train hard every day to get ready,” Tyler said. And it appears all the hard work is certainly paying off. He is the southern Ontario champion in his left arm and he won third for his right arm (in the 177 to 198 pounds category). Robinson is also western Ontario champion for his left arm and second for his right arm. On July 16 Robinson travelled to Belleville for the OAA Provincial Tournament, where he was named the 2011 Ontario Rookie of the Year. “I was so excited I forgot to videotape it ... we were pretty happy for him, that’s for sure,” Les said. “My wife Deb and

I are so amazed and proud of him.” Tyler said no one was more shocked than him when his named was called out. “I was pretty surprised,” he said. “I didn’t think I would get it.” But Les says his son is “a crowd favourite” at tournaments and extremely popular among his arm wrestling peers. Comments posted on the OAA message board seem to support that sentiment. Renowned arm wrestling champion Chris Gobby recently contributed this post, “I personally have never been more proud and honoured in awe as when I’ve shaken this man’s hand. Tyler is my ambassador of this sport ... and my rookie of the year.” But despite his successes to date, Tyler certainly has not become complacent. His goal is to ultimately become “a real champ” and he believes - as do others - that with continued hard work and perseverance, it may just be a matter of time until he gets there. “I love it,” Tyler said of the sport of arm wrestling. “I’m never going to give it up.” For more information visit

The Erin 4-H Veterinarian Club met at the Masonic Hall in Erin on recently. The meeting was opened with the 4-H Pledge. The leaders of the club are June Switzer, Craig Switzer and Dawn Dolson. The topic of discussion for the night was the digestive system. Members discussed types of eaters: carnivores, herbivores, omnivores and domesticated birds. They talked about how food is digested and the fermentation process of the food. Members also discussed which organs are used to assist in digestion. They learned the salivary glands, pancreatic juice and bile are all key components of

digestion. The parts of a bovine stomach were reviewed (rumen, reticulum, omasum, and abomasum). Common digestive diseases were discussed along with how to properly treat them. Some of the diseases are stomatitis, contagious ecthyma, hardware disease and ptyalism. Members participated in some experiments, such as making an emulsion, how villi and micro-villi work, and what happens when an animal bloats. They put their new knowledge to the test by ending the meeting with a game of Jeopardy. The meeting was closed with the 4-H motto. Cassandra Chornoboy, 4-H Press Reporter

Almost time to enter Elora’s flower and vegetable show Does the thought of placing entries in the 2011 Elora and Salem Horticultural Society’s Flower and Vegetable Show give you the “willies”? If so, it’s time to catch your breath, rid yourself of that feeling of intimidation and start studying the Show Guide schedule. It has been a tremendous summer for growing - a great reason to enter a few of your garden ‘beauties’ this year. Someone has to win and it might as well be you. Besides, it is fun, interesting, and there is much you can learn about growing and exhibiting. If you are unsure of anything, please ask a fellow horticultural society member. We are glad to help. The Elora and Salem Horticultural Society has two entry categories - junior (ages 6-15) and adult (over 15). First-time exhibitors in both categories are also eligible to enter in the Novice category for the Novice Award. A Youth Floral Arranging Contest in the Junior category is held the evening of the show (pre-registration required). So be of stout heart and place your exhibits on Aug. 15. The more participants, the better the show. All you need is a membership. If you still don’t have one, you can get it when you register for the show. Here are a few exhibiting tips : Planning It is important to have a schedule that outlines the various entry categories. A copy can be obtained, along with entry tags, at the Elora BIA Information Centre, 5 Mill Steet

East in Elora from July 18. Winning starts in the garden, so look around your garden and decide what you might like to enter as the show date approaches. On entry day or the day before, you should cut or harvest a few more specimens than required, in case of damage. Carefully select for uniformity in size, shape, colour; lack of flaws, diseases, damage - torn or broken foliage or fruit. Registration for the 2011 Elora and Salem Horticultural Society show happens on the evening of Aug. 15, between 7 and 9pm, at the Elora and District Community Centre. The exhibits will be judged the morning of Aug. 16 by Dorelene Anderson, OHA certified judge. The show will be open to the public between 7 and 9pm. This time difference is important to note, so you can consider in advance any changes that may occur in the state of your exhibits overnight. A typical transformation might be tight blooms opening further, changing the diameter of the blooms. Also, well-open blooms may start to fade. Buds may open and you end up with an extra bloom and now are NAS - not as scheduled. Vegetables, especially brassicas (cabbage family) may tend to wilt. Exhibiting flowers, vegetables The basic trick to winning, as in all competitive sports, is knowing how to influence the judge - not by cheating, but by using all your skills in the harvesting, preparation and presentation to attract his or her attention to your exhibit. You want your entry to

stand out above all others and catch the judge’s attention. Uniformity of size and quality of item(s) is key. For instance, if the rules call for three tomatoes and you have two nice big tomatoes, but the third has several anemic-looking spots, you would be better to enter three smaller ones that are unblemished and perfect in color and size. General Tips • Balance size of vase to flowers being exhibited. • Foliage must be from flower shown, NOT another type of flower. • Remove all diseased and/ or dead leaves prior to entering by clipping off (do not tear). • Artificial flowers are not eligible. • Read guide carefully : If the rule specifies five items don’t show four or six. • ‘Condition’ floral exhibits All flowers will require ‘conditioning’ to avoid ‘wilting’. Cut them with a sharp knife - leaving as long a stem as possible - either early in the morning or late afternoon, and immediately place in tepid water with some ‘cut flower food’ added to reduce wilting. Flowers are heavy drinkers, so be sure to check the water levels on a regular basis. • Gladiolus - An ideal spike consists of 1/3 open florets, 1/3 buds showing colour and 1/3 buds not showing colour ; all blooms on stem should face the same direction • Onions - Pick three weeks prior to exhibiting to allow them to cure. They must not bleed if the judge cuts them. Clean them up but don’t remove all of the skin.

• Beans - ensure they are straight or all specimens curve slightly in the same direction ; leave ½ inch of the stem attached ; they must be at the same stage of development and table ready (fresh) ; don’t wash – simply brush off any dirt (this applies to most other vegetables as well). • Beets – leave roots and stems on. • Radishes – harvest two to three days prior to the show and trim roots to two inches. • Squash – will display better if elevated from the soil while growing. This avoids spots from the damp earth • Carrots – side shoots are not allowed ; trim tops to two inches. • Sweet Peppers – all entries should be all three bump or all four bump bottoms; Floral Design Category Design is a separate category whereby floral arrangements are created using fresh flowers. This is the only class where the exhibitor may purchase plant material rather than growing their own. The show guide outlines the criteria of the design, based on the Ontario Judging & Exhibiting Standards – Publication 34/2003. The interpretation of the arrangement is up to you. The Elora and Salem Horticultural Society is looking forward to your participation. The show will be held Aug. 16 (with exhibits placed on the 15th), 7-9pm at the Elora and Community Centre.

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 first week of August -

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, social interaction will put a smile on your face. This week you will find you spend a lot of time with friends simply enjoying their company. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, if you question too many things, you will never get anything accomplished. Ambivalence leaves you feeling paralyzed. It’s time to make a move. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, recent admissions by someone close to you leaves you wondering if this person has ulterior motives. Take things at face value and don’t be so suspicious. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, planning a birthday bash for a loved one takes on new meaning. You’re ready to pull out all the stops and, if done right, this party has the makings of a night to remember. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, regardless of what you believe, the world will keep turning if you don’t have ultimate control of everything. Therefore, lighten up and share the workload. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Monetary issues come to the forefront, Virgo. Without some assistance, your accounts could dip much lower than you would like. Take action immediately. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, it’s time to focus on personal issues that need to be resolved. Once you tackle these things, you will have more free time to devote to guilty pleasures.

SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, you and your spouse or partner don’t see eye-to-eye on many things. This can lead to misunderstandings that need to be resolved. Exercise a little patience. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, a relationship that you thought might be long-term has ended prematurely. Don’t dwell on what might have been; move on to greener pastures this week. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, matters of the heart need to be temporarily set aside because you have other pressing requirements. Just don’t neglect family life for too long. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, sometimes you have to lighten up, otherwise people may not want to spend time with you. Now is the time to let loose and enjoy yourself. Try to make new friends. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Don’t get too lost in your own thoughts this week, Pisces. You need to be focused to handle a few tasks at hand.

Want to get away but need to be home for dinner? There are plenty of options for great local fishing in Wellington County. The Grand River Water Shed is a true blue ribbon tailwater fishery. In 2009, Canadian Fly Fisher Magazine listed the Grand River as the #1 fly fishing spot in Ontario. Conservation Areas in Rockwood, Elora, Guelph, Belwood and Conestogo are just a quick car ride away. You might have a good fish tale to share at the dinner table! Rediscover what’s going on in Wellington County this summer.
