Bellamy Family: Harvesting seasonal traditions in West Garafraxa by Mike Robinson

WEST GARAFRAXA When there’s a field of dreams, there’s a harvest to be had. And it seems a family that threshes together - stays together. Locally the Bellamy and Griffen families are keeping tradition alive with an annual threshing bee. Recently one was held at the Bellamy Farm along County Road 19 between Fergus and Belwood. Now in its 10th year, the event draws people from far and wide. Jim Bellamy and his uncle, Bob Bellamy, were there in the beginning. Jim Bellamy said the first threshing bee was held at the Gary Griffen’s property on the Fifth Line of West Garafraxa just up the road. “He just had it the one year and we took our threshing machines there - along with our Old Favourite.” “My dad was living at the time, and he decided we should have it here. So it’s been here for eight years, and one year in Belwood.”

Bob Bellamy added that the family had an old separator on the farm here so we decided we’d have a fun day. “But what really started it was that they had the separator in an anniversary parade in Belwood, and that gave us the idea.” Jim said that while that got that idea in place, “We decided we’d better raise money and donate it the hospital. We did that for five years, and for the past four years, donations have gone to support the local fire department.” And it’s an event that has grown over the years. “It’s gotten bigger all the time,” says Bob. “They’re coming from farther away all the time.” Jim noted participants have come from Cambridge, Erin, Hillsburgh, and Elmira. Even so, some of them return year after year. “And the people, they’re coming from Hanover, Toronto and Kitchener just to watch it.” Jim attributed some of that attendance to good weather. “But we also put on a good

meal here. For the ticket a person gets pork, beef, corn, pie, cakes, butter tarts - just like at a regular threshing bee,” he chuckled. And while it was perfect weather for this year’s event, Bob added “we’ve never been rained out yet.” When asked how much effort was involved, both chuckled in unison, “A lot.” Jim explained there’s about a week’s worth of work both before and after the event. Bob added there’s a lot of work to put it together and to take it apart. But there’s more than just the threshing at the BellamyGriffen event. In addition to the threshing machines, there is a tractor-powered sawmill, stone crusher, antique tractor displays, and a miniature baler. On top of that, there’s a

tractor pull near the back of the property. At the end of the day, it seems there’s something for the young

at heart and those wanting to relive memories of yesteryear.

ginating in Eden Mills: Our Earth, How kids are saving the planet by author and artist Janet Wilson. It includes portraits and profiles of children from around the world who have taken dramatic action to save the environment. It is published by Second Story Press. The Eden Mills Writers’ Festival is in its 22nd year. Founded by Leon and Connie Rooke, it is a weekend for book lovers. The Festival is also “going carbon neutral.� So, You Want to Go Carbon Neutral? is the second handbook published by Eden Mills Going Carbon Neutral. Empowering Your Home: An Intro­ duction to Renewable En­ergy and Energy Efficiency was written by Rheanna Leckie and Michael Conboy and is available on the Going Carbon Neutral website under Education. For further information about the Eden Mills Writers’ Festival (Sept. 17 to 19), visit www.edenmillswritersfesti­ val.ca.

offers ideas and is clear about the process of building and main­taining participation. What makes this going carbon neutral project unique is its insistence on measuring progress related both to reducing and replacing fossil fuel energies and to building up the natural offsets of CO2 ab­sorbed and sequestered in trees, vegetation, and soils. Eden Mills Going Carbon Neutral was a finalist in the national 2010 Hometown Heroes competition. Visit www.goingcarbon­ neutral.ca for more information. The handbook will be launched at the Writers’ Festival stage situated beside the Old Mill in Eden Mills. That is the home of Charles Simon, architect and planner, and award-winning pioneer of green building and planning. He and his wife, Anna Simon, were key founders of the Eden Mills Going Carbon Neutral project. The launch will also feature a second inspiring book ori­

guide for local climate action I’ve seen.� The Eden Mills Going Car­ bon Neutral project was laun­ ched in 2007. The minute that first North American ini­tiative was underway it was clear that writing it down was crucial, given the high level of interest it generated. The handbook (and accom­ panying DVD) walk the reader through the steps the residents of Eden Mills took in devel­ oping its grassroots, com­ mu­ nity-based, voluntary and com­ prehensive approach to re­ducing carbon dioxide emis­ sions. From the first gathering of concerned neighbours to the installation of photovoltaic sol­ ar panels on a village house­ hold roof; from the rousing Carbon Neutral Anthem to the wood pellet barbecue; from the workshops on geo-thermal heat­ ing to the demonstration of a solar-dryer for vegetables; from the annual village tree-planting organized by the Youth Group to the first green classrooms, the Handbook

ENTERTAINMENT Footlight Follies at Century Church Theatre HILLSBURGH - The tury Church Theatre here Cen­ continues its summer festival with a traditional old-time Music Hall, Footlight Follies, Sept. 24 to 26. Better known to North Am­e ri­c an audiences as Vaudeville, the Music Hall follows a long tradition in popular enter­tainment. Compiled by Neville Wor­ s­nop, from an original concept by Bev Nicholas, the Follies is a fast-paced trip through com­ edy and song from a team of performers. Soprano Judith Bean and baritone David Pounds will touch memories and tickle heartstrings with songs and duets, while champion fiddler Melissa Mouck will get toes tapping to some Celtic music and dance, and a little Modern Country as well. That is interspersed with comedy sketches, and hilarious

interruptions from Nicholas Holm­es and Worsnop. Dorean Boss will provide accompani­ ment on the pianoforte. The show is brought together by a chairman, Chris­topher Worsnop Esquire, who keeps order with his gavel while introducing the various acts, and adding some of his own humour to the proceedings. With opportuni­ ties for the audience to join in some of the choral numbers, it is sure to be a stimulating and entertaining performance. Artists from the Hills of Erin Studio Tour will be playing in the theatre on dis­ Saturday and Sunday, and this is the final chance to bid on items in the silent auction that has run all summer. The show runs Friday and Saturday evening at 8pm ($27), and Sunday afternoon at 2:30pm ($22). Seats may be reserved by calling the box office at 519-855-4586.

Blyth Festival presents play about WWII Veteran BLYTH - The Blyth Festival presents Jake’s Gift by Julia Mackey – an awardwin­ning Canadian play about a World War II veteran’s journey back to Juno Beach for the 60th anniversary of D-Day. During the trip, cantank­ erous Jake meets Isabelle, a precocious 10-year old from a local village, whose inquisitive nature and charm challenge the old veteran to confront some long ignored ghosts. Jake’s Gift was created after writer and performer Julia Mackey travelled to Normandy, in 2004 for the 60th anniver­ sary ceremonies of D-Day.

She spent eight days touring the Normandy coast, attending many of the ceremonies and interviewing Canadian, British and American veterans, as well as the local French people. Jake’s Gift runs on Sept. 27 at 8pm at Blyth Memorial Hall. Tickets are $25, and available at www.blythfestival.com or by calling 1-877-862-5984.

ENTERTAINMENT ELORA - The second an­ nual Riverfest attracted music lovers from across Ontario to the Elora Centre for the Arts. As anticipated, Riverfest ’10 was a success with warm

Riverfest attracted hundreds from across Ontario temperatures and great music attracting audiences Aug. 27 and 28. Event organizer, Marilyn Koop said she “couldn’t be happier with the support she received from the community

and the volunteers over the weekend – the bands were overwhelmed with the recep­ tion they received.” Hundreds of people descended upon the Elora Centre for the Arts for Friday’s event. Ukulele queen Zöe Jan­ zen, formerly of Arthur, and indie folk divas Dala.

On Saturday evening, the audience arrived early to enjoy a barbecue and to hear Winnipeg’s House of Doc , which opened the show with a high energy brand of folk and pop. Country roots veterans Prairie Oyster turned up the volume and delivered an elec­ trifying performance that

got the crowd up on its feet and dancing. Riverfest offered a mobile stage this year that ensured the sound, lighting, and special effects were first rate. Riverfest organizers thanked several sponsors, including the Township of Centre Wellington, Scotia

Bank, The Grand River Race­ way and the many others who helped make the event possible. Proceeds from the event will be put back into the Elora Centre for the Arts to help run the classes, workshops and children’s educational pro­ grams.

As one of the leading causes of disability in Canada, arthri­ tis affects people of every age, physical condition and ethnic background. One in six Canadians has arthritis and the number is growing at an alarming rate. Every September, The Arthritis Society uses Arthritis Aware­ ness Month to heighten under­ standing of the disease and raise funds for arthritis research and services. This September, The Arthritis Society is highlight­ ing the staggering impact of arthri­tis on Canadian workers. Peo­ple with arthritis have daily struggles that their co-workers do not face. Symptoms like pain and stiffness of arthritis can interfere with the ability to perform work-related tasks. The high prevalence of arthritis among working-age Canadians has devastating con­ sequences for the work­ place. While many men and women with arthritis work, a recent Public Health Agency of Canada report found that 44 per cent are working with job limitations and 33 per cent require job modifications. Canadians unaware Many Canadians do not understand the impact arthritis has on people in the workplace.

A recent Ipsos Reid poll commissioned by The Arthritis Society revealed that many Can­ adians do not understand the struggles faced by workers with arthritis. Almost four in 10 Canadians surveyed believe employees with arthritis are able to perform the same duties as their co-workers. “In fact, the pain, stiffness, and fatigue associated with some types of arthritis can make it difficult for many work­ ers to perform routine tasks” said Steven McNair, president and chief executive officer of The Arthritis Society. “Most people with arthritis are affected dur­ ing their prime income-earning years and many worry whether their symp­ toms will worsen and if they can continue work­ ing.” Of the more than four mil­ lion Canadians with arthri­ tis, about 60 per cent are of work­ ing age. There are more than 100 types of arthritis, caus­ ed by joint degeneration and inflammation. Although there is no known cure, there are a number of treatments but their effectiveness and accessi­bility can vary by individual situ­ ation. Most types of arthri­ tis can be managed by pacing, planning ahead and adopting a healthier lifestyle.

A recent study of almost 500 employed Canadians with arthritis found that about 37 per cent left work at some point over a five-year period as a re­sult of their disease. In addition, a recent Public Health Agency of Canada report stated 44 per cent of employed people with arthritis are working with job limitations and 33 per cent require job modifications. Contessa Benson, of Win­ nipeg, was diagnosed with pso­ ri­atic polyarthritis almost four years ago and found it difficult to perform her duties as a travel agent. “The pain was very intense,” she recalled. “When­ ever I walked, it felt like I was moving barefoot across a sea of knives. My hips were swol­ len so it was uncomfortable to sit in a chair. My fingers were also affected, which made it hard to use a pen or type on a key­board. I didn’t know how I could maintain my career. At my doctor’s advice, I took a leave of absence to rest my joints and allow medications to work.” Now back on the job, Ben­ son continues to work thanks to workplace adjustments, plan­ ning, and communication with co-workers. Her workspace has been outfitted with several

ergo­nomic aids, such as a foot­ stool and a raised keyboard, that protect her joints from excess wear and tear. She also plans ahead and paces herself. “I know there are parts of the day, particularly in the morning, when I’m feeling my best and that’s when I try to get most of my work done. Taking breaks conserves my energy and keeps me alert. My col­leagues have also been very co­ operative; they spare me from a lot of physical exer­ tion by mov­ing chairs or lifting boxes.” McNair added, “Arthritis currently costs the Canadian economy $6.4-billion every year in health-care expenses and lost work days. With the prevalence of arthritis set to dramatically increase, this prob­lem is about to get a lot worse so we need to find better treatments and a cure.” The Arthritis Society is drawing attention to the strug­ gles of workers with arthritis during Arthritis Awareness Month in September. It has just published a new Arthritis in the Workplace booklet, available in English and French. Google Arthritis Society of Canada for more information.

Exercises for seniors with limited mobility

September is Arthritis Month! Relieve Arthritis symptoms and learn how to manage your pain from one of our registered physiotherapists.

519-787-2714 Serving the C-W Community since 1999

Exercise is important for all people, including the elderly. Yet, seniors who have lim­ ited mobility or are confined to a wheelchair may think they couldn’t possibly exercise. However there are many things such individuals can do to stay in shape all while sitting down. Doctors recommend at least 30 minutes of daily exercise for most people. Exercise is beneficial for seniors because it keeps muscles from atrophy­ ing, improves mental alertness, strengthens bones, and leads to a healthier metabolism, among other things. For seniors who think they won’t be able to handle tra­ ditional exercise, chair exer­ cises or modified pilates can be

effective, even for those with trouble walking or standing for extended periods of time. To get started, all one needs is some loose-fitting clothing and a chair. Begin by doing some stretching movements of the neck, arms and legs. Rotate the head left and right and in circles to stretch the neck and back muscles. Lift arms over the head and slowly drop down to the sides of the body to stretch arms and back muscles. Lift and lower the legs a few times to warm them up. To begin exercises, start slowly and gradually build up repetitions. Exercises to try include boxing or punching into the air, arm circles, and arm curls. For the legs, work

the back and front of the legs. Kick the legs out in front of the body several times. Hold legs parallel to the floor (as much as possible) and do leg crosses. Put feet flat on the floor and lift up the heels. Keep feet on the floor and push down to work the buttocks and the top of the thighs. Individuals who have mas­ tered these exercises and have been told by a doctor that it is OK to do something a bit more strenuous may want to add very light weights to the equa­ tion for more resistance. Two or five pound weights are all that’s needed to give muscles even more of a workout. Those looking to change things up from day to day can

think about doing yoga in a chair or even tai chi exercises. Deep breathing and meditation after workouts can be part of a cool down and stress-relief program. If swimming is possible, or even simply entering a pool, water provides gentle resis­ tance and could be a good way to work the body in a gradual manner. Buoyancy from the water will be easy on joints and this type of exercise is very low-impact. Remember to always con­ sult a doctor before beginning any type of exercise regimen, be it with a personal trainer or on your own. The doctor can discuss which type of exercises may be safe.

Caressant Care had recent visit from exotic animals from Tiger Paw

ARTHUR - Tiger Paw is located just outside of Arthur on a farm off Highway 9 but it came to Caressant Care seniors home recently. Tim Height is the owner and Hans Eschlboeck works with him and organized the event with Caressant Care. He also stayed for the entire animal show. Caressant Care officials

made the connection through Eschlboeck’s son, Howie, who volunteers at the home for his 40 hours of community service for his high school credits. Eschlboeck and Height agreed it should be run as a com­ munity event for the seniors and decided to run the entire show free of charge. That included set up, onsite animal information from

Eschlboeck and all the clean up. The residents took in mul­ tiple loops around the stroll garden to view the animals many times. Animals included white hens, rabbits, pot belly pigs, goats, llama’s, miniature cows, donkeys and on the more exotic side, an alligator, two snakes and a wallaby. At one point the wallaby

was allowed to go loose and visit everyone. Eschlboeck said it is very safe and friendly. Many family members and grandchildren took part in the event. The kids enjoyed a clown and free helium balloons as well as pop, ice-cream bars and popsicles. The residents loved the day and commented how they never thought they would see

something like this in their backyard. Many residents proved to

be daredevils and wore the snake around their necks and wrists.

Service dogs definitely can be man’s best friend

Service and assistance dogs can make everyday living possible for thousands of people with disabilities. Many people have seen guide dogs who navigate difficult terrain and assist their blind handlers. But service dogs are available for many different conditions. Some assist the deaf, alerting the handler to sounds. There are other dogs trained to respond when an individual has a seizure. Some dogs assist with mobility issues, providing the “arms” or “legs” for a disabled person. There are even dogs that can serve in psychiatric settings, assisting those with certain mental illnesses. Without service dogs, many

$200 OFF Any pair of Hearing Aids Ends Aug 31st

people may not be able to live full lives. Service dogs are often donated to individuals, and training of animals is on a volunteer basis. Whatever the case, the most important part of the scenario is a capable and willing dog being matched with a person in need. Service dogs come into their service careers in a number of ways. Some dogs were shelter dogs that were evaluated for proper temperament and trainability. Other dogs are surrendered to training organizations from former pet owners who need to find the pet a new home. On rare occasions breeders donate service dogs.

Service dogs may be trained by organizations or by individuals. Depending on the dog’s age, training can take a minimum of six months to as long as 22 months to complete. Training will include fostering by a family to ensure the dog has household manners. Because service dogs will have to have ears and eyes on their handlers at all times, they will be trained to ignore distractions in their environment. They also must be able to respond to commands promptly and avoid the behavioral problems that can sometimes plague dogs, such as food aggression. Sometimes service dogs in

training are simply not able to meet the needs of a service dog. They may be released from training for adoption. It takes a very special dog to be a successful service dog. This type of dog must be happy in temperament, obedient, quick to learn, and able to interact with both people and other animals without any aggression. For more information about assistance dogs and training, visit www.assistancedogsinternational.org.

RECORD SOYBEAN CROP STILL ON TARGET - AGCAN from AgriLink Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada says soybean production is forecast at a record high 3.95 Mt, up by 13% from 2009-10. Area seeded rose by 5% on support from attractive returns while yields are expected to be well above the 5 year average. The supply of soybeans is estimated to rise by 10% to a record 4.8 Mt due to sharply higher carry-in stocks and steady imports. Exports are forecast to rise to a record 2.5 Mt on support from the strong world demand for commercial and Identity Preserved soybeans. Total domestic use is forecast to rise slightly on support from a steady crush pace and increased feed, waste and dockage. Carry-out stocks are forecast to decline slightly, to 0.5 Mt, which is significantly above the 5 year average. Soybean prices are forecast to decline slightly due to lower US prices resulting from the near-record large crop and the continued near-par Canadian dollar.

OFA sees that the Open for Business direction might produce results by Bette Jean Crews, President, Ontario Federation of Agriculture The Ontario Federation of Agriculture often points out farmers are likely the one sec­ tor of our economy most affec­ ted by regulation. As employers, as business people responsible for steward­ ship of land and resources, as users of fertilizers and crop tection products, and sim­ pro­­ ply as Ontario’s largest private land owner group, farmers deal directly with regulations that may or may not work in their favour. Increasingly, as land own­ ers, Ontario farmers are finding themselves as victims of “un­in­ tended consequences” of regu­ lations not aimed at their farm

busi­ness but seriously impact­ ing it in some fashion. Our concerns are now being addressed by the Ontario gov­ ernment through its Open for Business initiative. After much lobbying for relief from many of the obstacles that have been plac­ed on doing business effi­ ciently in Ontario, the Ontario Federation of Agriculture is being given an opportunity to help undo some of those ob­stacles. The OFA has been asked to spearhead the agriculture con­ sul­ tations on the top-five regu­ latory priorities for our sector. As part of the Ontario gov­ern­ment’s business sector strategy, the OFA will have the op­por­tunity to provide the gov­ern­ment with the key issues that af­fect agriculture and the

sector’s ability to do business efficiently. OFA will soon invite part­ ners in the agriculture sector to consult in the identification of the five priority issues to im­prove the regulatory regime in Ontario. Late fall will be the target date for completion of this stage of the process. When the top five priori­ ties are determined, the Open For Business directorate will con­vene a roundtable that will in­ clude representatives from OFA, and key representatives from relevant ministries identi­ fied in the submission. That may involve the On­tario Ministry of Agriculture, Food, and Rural Affairs, Min­ istry of Natural Resources, Ministry Of Environment, and Ministry of Finance, to name

Town of Minto sludge contract awarded to Organix Matters by Mike Robinson MINTO - There’s money in sludge haulage. Councillors here recently accepted the $74,999 bid of Organix Matters to haul and

a few. The roundtable will be held in January 2011 with a mandate to address the issues and associated recommen­ dations for improvement. Affected government min­ is­­ tries will then have two months to work with OFA to develop and work out solutions to the pri­orities, where possi­ ble. If pri­orities cannot be fully addressed, the ministries must develop alternative recom­men­ dations on how the issues can be addressed. The OFA fought for and won this opportunity to address an important issue faced by

all our farm businesses – the need for practical and workable regulation. We look forward to grass­ roots input on priorities and to working with our partners to ensure the entire agricul­

ture and food chain, on which we all depend, operates more smooth­ ly and without unnec­ essary regulatory burden. We thank the Ontario government for the opportunity

First anniversary of unique American ‘Know Your Farmer’ campaign by John Clement It’s the first anniversary of a unique program launched by the United States Department

that aims to promote local and re­gional food systems, stimulate community economic develop­ment and ensure equitable ac­ cess to affordable, fresh and local food. According to media com­ ments by Agriculture Deputy Secretary Kathleen Merrigan, the Barak Obama admi­ ni­ stration wants to support and establish local and regional food systems as an economic development strategy to keep wealth in local communities. She said “Part of our Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food initiative is to link the agricul­ tural community to urban mar­ kets to bring new under­ stand­ ing of the importance of heal­ thy eating and provide en­ hanc­ ed access to fresh foods.

de­mand for locally grown food in the U.S. to rise from an esti­ mated $4-billion in 2002 to as much as $7-billion by 2012.” You have to admire the Americans because they can often roll up their sleeves and put together significant collec­ tive actions when they decide the time and opportunity is right. The Know Your Farmer program is a good example of the effort, conviction, and en­ergy the Americans will put into a project they believe in. By way of example, part of the USDA program is called The Farm-To-School Tactical Teams. Sounding oddly mili­ tar­istic, the teams are on a mission to tour American school cafe­terias looking for ways to help ad­ministrators buy more loc­ally grown food. They have earmarked $50-million to stat­

es, with the hook being that it be used to buy local food for schools. Keeping the program in the forefront of people’s thinking, the USDA has also launched a website to carry on a national conversation about the value of local food and the need to sup­ port regional economies. Fin­ ally, in a country where sym­bolism is extremely important, a farmers’ market has been created just outside the presi­ dential mansion in Washington. But despite the enthusiasm, the Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food program is not with­ out its critics. Three Repub­lican senators have criticized the USDA for helping “small, hobbyist and organic producers whose customers generally con­ sist of affluent

And we’ve also had our share of programs at various government levels to make it happen. But I’ve got to say that I really admire the American initiative because of its sheer conviction, overall coordi­na­tion and “can do” attitude. Because of that, I extend a “happy one-year anniversary” to the USDA’s “Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food” program.

Successful season for women’s traveling soccer team With ages ranging from 18 to 37, a team of 21 was picked. McDougall said, “This season I witnessed a group of 21 young women go from relative ob­ scurity to taking second overall in the OWSL - MJDL division. The team had the league’s best defensive numbers, second best offensive numbers, and one player named to the OWSL all star team. “We also had two of the best goalies in the entire division. Their dedication and commit­ ment made coaching them both enjoyable and inspirational, and although they may have learned very little from me, I know I learned a great deal from them.” He added, “With limited practice space and a few injuries to boot, the team conti­ nually went about the job of winning soccer matches and remaining focused on the task at hand, no matter what obstacles were put in front of them.

The Fergus-Elora team had a successful season in the Ontario Woman’s Soccer League, the highest level for women’s soccer in of Ontario. The league is affiliated with the Ontario Soccer Association, Canadian Soccer Association, and FIFA, the world governing body of soccer. FEDS (Fergus Elora District Soccer) entered the team hoping to attract more players. Previously, it had played in the South Western Regional Soccer League (SWRSL), but games were on Sunday evenings and did not attract enough players. Most were played with barely 11 players and led to many disappointing seasons. In Late 2009, FEDS hired Bob “Manny” McDougall as head coach and Kevin Curran as assistant to lead the team into the OWSL. With the OWSL playing games during the week, it gave more opportunities for players. With tryout sessions starting in early 2010, it was the beginning to a very successful season.

Former Upper Grand teacher awarded Honorary Life Membership by ETFO

TORONTO – Former Upper Grand teacher Lynda McDougall was honoured by her colleagues last night when she was awarded an Honorary Life Membership in the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO) at its Annual Meeting in Toronto. Honorary Life Memberships, the Federation’s highest form of recognition, are given to

members who have retired from the education profession and who have given outstanding service to the Federation. Lynda’s first involvement in federation work was attending a Federation of Women Teachers’ Associations of Ontario (FWTAO) annual meeting at sixteen years of age with her mother. From that beginning, she attended annual meetings as a delegate

for 20 years. These experiences continued to open the world of possibilities to her as a union member. Lynda served as Vice President in the Upper Grand Teacher Local beginning in 2000 and continuing until 2008. Throughout her work as a teacher local leader, Lynda was always appreciative of what she learned from other local leaders – not only

the mission flight command gave her many challenges forcing her to make decisions that would either preserve the safety of her crew and mission or end in disaster, Jordan successfully used her training and safely returned her crew home. She earned a University of Alabama Science credit and an unforgettable experience. Astronaut Robert “Hoot” Gibson who commanded four of the five Space Shuttle missions he flew for NASA, including the first docking of a shuttle with the Russian space station Mir., greeted the students and presented them with graduation certificates along with His Excellency Libyan Ambassador Ali Suleiman Aujali, who presented the students with international friendship pins.

We all know a young person who should be nominated for an Ontario Junior Citizen of the Year Award. The program strives not only to recognize the dozen or so outstanding young people who will be the recipients of awards, but also to give deserving recognition in their own communities to hundreds of others who represent ‘good kids’. To achieve this, everyone nominated receives a certificate of congratulations. Since 1981, the prestigious Ontario Junior Citizen of the Year Awards Program has recognized the best of Ontario’s youth. Co-ordinated by the Ontario Community Newspapers Association (OCNA) with the support of its sponsors, the Junior Citizen Program is wholeheartedly supported by the office of the Lieutenant Governor of Ontario.

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 third week of September -

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, a few moments of complete solitude and sanctuary are on the horizon this week. Make the most of this rarity and enjoy the break from your hectic schedule.

SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, recurring health woes could mean something is amiss and it’s not just a coincidence. This is a good time to visit the doctor and get a check-up.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, a business rival wants to infringe on your territory. You are not about to let that happen. Higher-ups know that you have the goods to get the job done.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 A silly mistake has the potential to snowball into something with a life of its own, Sagittarius. Just get a handle on the situation and things will quickly return to normal.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 It might be time to lay low for awhile, Gemini. When conflicts arise you want to stay below the radar until things smooth over. Thursday proves to be a challenging day. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, put your trust in someone close to you. You will need this person in the weeks to come to help you through a difficult situation. Chances are it could stretch on for a while. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, complacency is not your credo. Take matters into your own hands if you find things aren’t going according to how you see them. Do it right. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, you may have taken on more than you can handle. Now is the time to backtrack and see what items you can delegate to someone else ... and pronto. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, a work project that’s baffled others will take a lot of hard work and determination. If anyone can get it done, it is you. This could be grounds for a raise.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Use your instincts when making an important financial decision, Capricorn. While others are consulting charts and figures, stick with what your gut is telling you. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, you may need a little push to get motivated. That’s OK. There are plenty of people who can offer the gentle support that you need to get by. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, spend this week fostering any and all friendships that might have grown estranged in recent months.
