St. Joseph Catholic Church: No disconnect between church and school by David Meyer

FERGUS - About 420 students filed quietly from the gymnasium of St. Joseph Catholic school here on Sept. 10 - the very last time the opening mass for the new school year would be held there. If all goes well, students from St. Joseph in Fergus will have a short walk next year to celebrate their first mass of the school year in a brand new church, and its teachers and the clergy take that very seriously. The current church is located at 420 St. George Street in Fergus, but the new one, off St. David Street North right beside the school, is well underway, with the roof trusses up and the roof being closed in so construction can continue all winter. The current church is 141 years old, and it has long since outgrown its congregation. The move to locate it beside the school brings smiles of approval from Father Ian Duffy, and school principal Lowell Butts. “Traditionally, the school and church have shared the same property,” said Father Duffy after that school mass. “It makes for a very unified presence.” Butts agrees. “The school, in my view, is the arm of the church. They’re so intimately connected. Most of us grew up with a church and a school” close together. Wellington County Catholic School Board Director Don Drone clearly approves of the move of the church adjacent to the school grounds. “Ideally, any place where there’s a Catholic Church you had a school nearby,” he said in an interview. “It’s very significant value added from our point of view.” Drone said it means a parish priest is close to the school and that is useful in preparation for the sacraments that are a big part of the Catholic life and education. “It’s part and parcel of what

we do,” said Drone. He also noted holding mass at the school means set-up and tear-down time. “From a practical stand– point [a church close by] is fabulous. It just reinforces the relationship.” For a Catholic school offering a religious education, having the church nearby is an important issue. Students can attend not only weekday masses, but also Stations of the Cross, special religious events during Advent and Lent and other religious rites. They can use the church for rehearsals for sacraments like Holy Communion and Confirmation, as well as for preparing for feast days such as the Crowning of Mary, in May. “There are things we can easily accomplish by walking across the yard,” said Butts. “To have it beside us is a big blessing.” St. Joseph Catholic Church was opened in 1869 in Fergus (the church was actually established in 1854, but such buildings took some time in those days, too). Fergus was a Scottish town, and hence mainly Presbyterian, although there have been many other denominations with a long history in the community. Father Duffy said there are currently 650 families on the church books, mainly from Fergus and Belwood. Others, he noted, have moved away, but some of them return for mass each Sunday. But the capacity of the current church is 150. The new church will hold 550. And, he noted, “Currently, almost all of our school masses are held in the gym.” Like with many churches these days, Father Duffy admitted some parents are not particularly regular in their attendance. He said with their children having opportunities to attend church services more

often, they might start bringing parents and other family members back to more regular attendance. Things have changed in the past few years for the Catholic Church - and for Catholic education. For example, since there is full funding for all Catholic schools at all grade levels today, there is no longer a demand that students attending Catholic schools be practicing Catholics. Father Duffy said students of other faiths

church. One other building that goes with the church and the school is the Catholic rectory, or housing for the local priest. Father Duffy said for now he will continue living where he is, and no plans have been made for a change in housing. That will be up to the diocese headquarters, in Hamilton. A fourth standby of the past will not likely be considered because some changes now seem permanent. At one time, many Catholic schools

“From a practical standpoint [a church close by] is fabulous. It just reinforces the relationship.” - Wellington County Catholic School Board Director Don Drone are welcome to the educational opportunities as long as they are respectful of the Catholic ways of the school. Another change is some– what like that movie, Back to the Future. Pope Benedict is now permitting Latin masses to be celebrated, and St. Joseph Church has offered such a service every Saturday morning for the past year and a half. It also offers a Latin mass “on some of the greater feast days,” Father Duffy said. The next one is for All Soul’s Day, on Nov. 2. He said, “People come from far and wide” on feast days to attend those Latin masses, but the attendance is not what can be called huge. As many as 30 or 40 people will attend. Father Duffy said he hopes that as people learn about them, they will attract more people. Education has long been a tradition of the Catholic

Today, the vast majority of teachers in the system are laity, and Father Duffy could recall only a couple of nuns who are still living and active. But Butts said everyone knows the debt that is owed to the religious people who taught in Catholic schools for years. He said, “The rise of the Catholic school is a gift to us by the Sisters and Fathers. Some played double roles. We owe a debt of gratitude to the Sisters and Brothers [another division within the church], and the religious that founded our system.” Oddly enough though, the first Fergus Catholic school was founded by a woman who was not part of the church hierarchy. Father Duffy said the teaching nuns came later. From 1874 to 1900, a now-forgotten laywoman ran the Catholic

school. The Sisters of Notre Dame, known particularly for their teaching services, arrived only in the 1940s. And Butts said it was a Jesuit, a Father Holtzer, who had an early influence on teaching and education in Wellington County. Jesuits were particularly renowned as teachers within the church and also by outsiders. The order, the Society of Jesus, was founded in 1539 by Ignatius Loyola as a means to combat the Reformation, where thousands deserted the Catholic Church to become Protestants. Jesuits developed a huge reputation as teachers and helped bring many back to the Catholic Church. But even before that, as Father Duffy noted, Catholics as teachers and promoters of education go back about 1,600 years, and during the Dark Ages, at a time when only about two per cent of the population was literate, most of those people lived in monasteries and led religious lives. The Benedictine Order was particularly prominent in keeping education alive, albeit for only a select few in those days.

Father Duffy and Butts are hoping the students they are preparing for the world will also live religious lives, but they noted that many St. Joseph’s school students, instead of going on to St. James Catholic High School in Guelph, are now opting for the public high school in Fergus instead. Which brings the question, why isn’t there a Catholic High School in Fergus? There are Catholic elementary schools in Arthur and Mount Forest, as well as Elora. Those schools might find it easier to send students to a Fergus high school than to one in Guelph. Students from outside Fergus might prefer a trip to Fergus than the longer bus ride to the city. Father Duffy and Butts said those are questions for the school board to consider, and in the meantime, they are simply excited about first getting a new church. Some of the stained glass from the current church will be brought to the new one, keeping a connection with the past. That new church is scheduled to open on Sept. 11 of 2011. Butts said, “It appears we’re on schedule right now.”

Caroline Countryman, manager of Community Support Services for VON. Meals on Wheels is a well recognized program that has evolved over the years. In Wellington County, it is delivered by VON. In the city of Guelph, the program is delivered by Red Cross. Home and Community Support is critical in helping family caregivers as well as supporting seniors and persons with physical disabilities in

their own homes. However, there is a need to increase these services to cope with wait lists and the growing demand for services. When people do not get the care they need to prevent deteriorating social and health situations, they end up in the Emergency Department or are admitted into hospital where they stay unnecessarily because there are no supports for them at home. The demand for community support continues to

grow as the population ages. Caregivers can burn-out with the burdens placed upon them caring for a loved one. October is Community Support Month. The following events are scheduled for Oct.: - Oct. 15, Home Help and Maintenance Service Day; - Oct. 18 to 22, Adult Day Program Week; - Oct. 26, Attendant Services Day; and - Oct. 28 - Home at Last Day.

GUELPH – In honour of the 65th anniversary of the end of the Second World War, Chartwell Seniors Housing has launched Honour, featuring the work of renowned Canadian photographer Yuri Dojc. The book was inspired by the death of Canada’s last WWI veteran, who passed away in January. “We realize an incredible amount of history lives in our residences,” said Brent Binions, president and chief executive officer of Chartwell, Seniors Housing REIT. “Honour captures the unique and compelling stories of 35 quiet heroes living in Chartwell homes across Canada.” The book features the photos and profiles of individuals who are either veterans or sup-

ported the war effort. Three residents from Chartwell Select Wellington Park were chosen for the book including Richard Kunze, Lloyd Hoover, and Earl MacNaughton. Originally a chemical volunteer for the army, Kunze still suffers from the debilitating scarring left behind by mustard gas burns. So extensive were his scars that the army originally resisted accepting him for oversea service due to the risk that he would be captured for chemical warfare intelligence. Despite the years, the pain from his scars remains constant, but he clearly endures it with pride. “You need to forget and carry on. I chose to serve and I’m proud I did.” The book will be released in early November and sold at Chartwell seniors homes across the country. Net proceeds will be donated to Canadian organizations committed to the remembrance of Canada’s veterans including the War Amps Operation Legacy.

selves. Some clients are unable even to answer their own doors, and have trusted volunteers come into their homes, help unwrap their food and check in on how they’re doing. The program is an important connection, and volunteers are able to update us on other services clients need. “Clients may like our nutritionally balanced meals – but they love our volunteers. They call them ‘angels,’ ‘bright lights,’ and ‘godsends’ ” said

Government: many benefits of hiring older workers

If you are looking for employees for part-time or fulltime work, don’t limit yourself to students and new graduates. With the growing labour shortage, you need to look at all your options. Have you thought of hiring older workers? You might be pleasantly surprised by what they have to offer. As a growing number of baby boomers (those born between 1945 and 1964) start to retire, they are looking for ways to make extra money or to keep busy. If you are looking for staff, you’ll find that these older workers have a wealth of knowledge and experience, and may be happy to spend some of their time productively working for you.

Baby boomers aren’t the only older workers you should consider. Did you know that, according to an article by Statistics Canada, about one in ten seniors worked in 2006? Though most seniors worked in consumer services, business services and primary goods, 14.8% of older women worked in the health sector. Why hire an older worker? Here are some of the benefits you can expect. Satisfied customers. According to the Conference Board report “Gray Skies, Silver Linings: How Companies are Forecasting, Managing and Recruiting a Mature Workforce”, market research shows customers usually prefer dealing with staff

their own age. Since the population is aging, more of your customers are getting older too. If you hire older workers, your older customers will appreciate it. Service with experience. Mature workers often have excellent customer-service skills. They have years of experience in dealing with people and solving problems, besides the knowledge they’ve acquired working in their particular industry over the years another plus for your business. Loyalty and a strong work ethic. Once hired, older workers usually choose to stay at a job longer, which will save you time and money finding, hiring and training new staff. As well, according to a survey by the

Conference Board of Canada, baby boomers are considered to be hard workers who respect authority, work well in a team and don’t need close supervision. These are qualities worth considering when you look for workers. Whether they are 65 or 70+, older workers help provide you with an experienced workforce. As long as their desire to work is present and, depending on the worker, the work is not too physically demanding, there is no reason why they can’t keep working for you for years to come.

GUELPH – The Guelph and District Human Resources Professionals Association (GDHRPA) has announced the opening of the nomination period for its third annual Employer of Distinction Awards. The awards recognize two local companies as outstanding employers who shape organizational excellence and

Nominations being sought for Employer of Distinction raise awareness of the human resources profession through the success of their organizations. This recognition will give employers the opportunity to share their stories – that they are great places to work. This annual award has been well received by the Guelph and district business population. The most recent recipients were The Co-operators

in the large business category (200 employees or greater) and Colley Insurance, in the small business category (fewer than 200 employees). Previous recipients also include Global Tox and the City of Guelph. “The Co-operators was honoured to be recognized as the Employer of Distinction for 2010. I was impressed with the thoroughness of the

selection committee” said Bernie Mitchell, vice-president of Human Resources at The Co-operators. “They took the time to understand what we as an organization felt were our strengths, but more importantly they took the time to speak to our employees to ensure that we were delivering on our value proposition as a best employer.”

The GDHRPA invites people to nominate any company they believe goes above and beyond and should be recognized as one of the area’s top employers. Nominations will be received until Oct. 29. Award recipients will be announced at the GDHRPA luncheon on Jan. 20. The Guelph & District Human Resources Professionals Association was

established in 1953 to promote the value of people in achieving the business goals that result in organizational success. It provides resources and education to Human Resources Professionals within the Guelph community and surrounding areas. Visit www.gdhrpa.ca for an online nomination form.

Protection of computer data can be easy and even inexpensive A little USB encryption goes a long way in protecting your sensitive files. Pretty much everybody over age 15 knows the risks of having unprotected sex. So pretty much everybody takes precautions – and usually carries effective protection that fits in a pocket or purse. But when it comes to protecting sensitive data, most people still act like they’re immune. They leave their digital assets out in plain sight on their desk tops, laptops, believing that a computer password is protection enough. Any half-competent hacker or serious identity thief can get it in minutes. Maybe seconds. Reality check: what about your digital files? The ones with your personal financial information? Or your medical records? Maybe some critical company data? Or pictures that you’d have hard time explaining to your partner? How well are they protected? How would you feel if they suddenly went viral on the Internet? It could happen quite easily if you lost your laptop. (FYI: there’s one lost or stolen nearly every minute in the U.S.). And what about files on a flash drive? Who hasn’t lost one of them? You get the point. Our (your) data is not safe.

FALLIS FALLIS & McMILLAN

But it could be, pretty easily. There are dozens and dozens of software and hardware encryption solutions on the market. Some are excellent, a lot are adequate and a few are awful. Here’s a rundown on the pros and cons of four pocketand-purse sized solutions that offer a range of effectiveness, economy and ease of use. Top of the heap is the Iron Key Personal S200 solution (www.ironkey.com). Marketed as the world’s most secure flash drive, it’s got built-in hardware encryption chip to protect your data. That it does really well, but it should for the high price: $80 for 1 gig, $300 for 16 gigs as of this writing. On the downside, it’s also much bigger than most USB flash drives and wouldn’t fit on a key ring. And after 10 incorrect passwords, it fries the USB memory (you lose all your data). At the other end of the spectrum is TrueCrypt (www.truecrypt.org). Pluses: it’s free, open source and can encrypt your whole hard drive (that can be good or bad). Minuses: you have to do more than a little set up and formatting, the feature that makes it portable appears to be Windows only, which means that you will need

to have TrueCrypt installed to use your secure volume on a Linux or OS X machine. And the account that you use TrueCrypt on must be administrator level, which could make it hard to use a TrueCrypt protected USB on a library terminal or corporate computer. And because the encrypted volume resides as a container file on the unencrypted portion of the USB key, if someone got access to your drive without your knowing it, or if it were lost, they could copy off this file and subject it to brute-force password guessing methods. Free, yes, but at a price. The two other solutions reviewed, SafeHouse (www.safehousesoftware.com) and Encrypt Stick (www.encryptstick.com), both give you a lot for relatively little. Both are very easy to use software solutions, both are fully portable, and both have free trial versions. SafeHouse, a Windows only solution, makes you buy the more expensive upgrade (SafeHouse Professional at $59.95) to get the full strength 448-bit encryption. Encrypt Stick does Windows and OS X, on the same flash drive, for one price. On the SafeHouse Explorer (their free version) and Personal ($29.95) you get only 256-bit encryption. Nice, but a weaker offer than Encrypt Stick’s

512-bit polymorphic encryption, even on the free version. Among other extras, Encrypt Stick’s Full version gives you unlimited number of encrypted vaults (or protected folders), unlimited encrypted flash drive storage space, and a user definable timeout feature. Three other Encrypt Stick features I liked: • if you lose your flash drive you can access encrypted files on your PC or Mac through a new license via their website. • you only have to remember one password because a built-in Password Manager not only stores passwords, but can also automatically generate strong passwords. • you get a virtual keyboard that totally prevents keylogging. OK, you’ve got enough data to make a decision. You could have all the protection you need if you got an encryption solution in the next 15 minutes. Or would you rather wait until you see your private pictures on the Internet? Or the bank calls you to ask if you’ve been shopping in Hong Kong?

Personal financial planning for small business owners can be a lot more vital than people might think Many Canadians are aware that small businesses are a major force in today’s economy. With the establishment of costeffective technologies breaking down the high cost of entry, many entrepreneurs are testing the waters of self-employment like never before. Along with greater independence and increased earnings potential, selfemployment comes with a list of potential financial risks. If a business enterprise fails or succumbs to disability, the small business owner is on

his own, sometimes putting personal assets at risk. That hard fact makes personal financial planning an essential strategy for the owner of a small business to succeed. During the early stages of a start up, personal and business income are often one and the same, with cash flow management sometimes becoming an issue. In addition, proper structuring of income is an important step in maximizing after tax income. Once a business is up and running, the natural tendency is

to reinvest all the profits back into the business. But there are a number of personal risks associated with this strategy. A better alternative may be to invest a portion of the proceeds into segregated funds which have the unique feature of providing potential protection from creditors. This way, if the business fails, the business owner has diversified their personal assets outside the business and had something to show for their efforts. For mature businesses, the financial planning process is

even more important to protect their personal interests. Two issues to be addressed are safeguarding their business in event of sudden disability and succession planning in the event of the owner’s death. A “buy-sell” agreement between partners can formalize the understanding of what happens when one of the partners is disabled or dies. A formal succession plan can do the same thing if the business is to stay in the family. The key is to support these agreements with the appropriate funding

before something happens to an owner or partner. By purchasing “key person” insurance that covers disability, critical illness and death, insurance proceeds can provide critical capital to the business, partners and to family members when they need it most. Business owners must understand the importance of beginning the financial planning process early. Once a business is in

trouble, it is almost impossible to establish a plan that protects the business owner’s interests effectively. For more information on creating and implementing a plan, contact a qualified financial planner.

Allie’s Kids: Illustrations by Lois Beams MacKenzie ABOYNE- On exhibit from October 16, 2010 to February 20, the Wellington County Museum and Archives presents Allie’s Kids: Illustrations by Lois Beams MacKenzie. Inspired by Lois’ published memories in 2009, fifteen original framed illustrations highlight her family life in the Depression and the struggles endured by her mother, Allie, as she raised a large family. In the 1990s, Beams joined the Elora Memoir Group and began recording the story of her life. Her illustrations are an expression of those memories and the museum is delighted to share them in this exhibition. Born in 1922, Beams’ father was killed in a sawmill accident in Fergus when she was just 5 years old, the oldest of three children. Her mother remarried

and bore several more children in the 1930s. Life with Beams’ stepfather was harsh and jobs were non-existent. During the Depression, the family moved 22 times in 12 years, each dilapidated house worse than the last. Beams’ memoirs present vivid and honest recollections of the hardships of poverty. Her zest for life, however, allows her

to embrace with fondness the warm memories of simple pleasures and family love.

ENTERTAINMENT Review Twelve Angry Men satisfies the emotional demands of exacting play by Marie Male ST. JACOBS - Drayton Entertainment shows its serious side in Twelve Angry Men, now playing at St. Jacobs Country Playhouse. A compelling and provocative story finds its niche as the rapt audience judges and measures along with the sweating men before them. The setting is a sweltering jury room in the dog days of summer, augmenting the tempers of a group of men willing to take the route of least resistance and convict a 16-year-old boy of murdering his father, thus condemning him to death. Juror 8 is the lone dissenter. Each moment winds the tension tighter as Juror 8 goes to bat for the boy and attempts to convince the other 11 jurors

Jonathan Whittaker, James Kall and the cast of Twelve Angry Men, which is playing in St. Jacobs until Oct. 24. of the reasonable doubt he alone senses. The character, or lack thereof, of each juror

is revealed in short order, further calling the fragility yet absolute finality of the justice

system into question. Performances in the show are nothing short of remarkable. Prejudice obscuring justice is epitomized by Nicholas Rice as Juror 10. His convincing depiction ranges from “these people” haughty to solemn. Victor Roberts portrays compassion and dignity to great affect as the Juror 9. Juror 8 is played by James Kall with the confidence and decency necessary to sway his fellow jurors. David Ludwig runs the gamut of emotions, all of them authentic. Keith Savage plays it straight and insightful as the 11th juror, of European descent. Audience members may recognize Jonathan Whittaker as a familiar television actor in his dramatic Drayton debut. Each

performance has the audience members transported to the jurors room and musing on their own convictions. The play was written in 1954 by Reginald Rose and inspired by his own experience as a juror on a manslaughter case in New York City. At first, he had been reluctant, but wrote, “The moment I walked into the courtroom … and found myself facing a strange man whose fate was suddenly more or less in my hands, my entire attitude changed.” In 1957, Twelve Angry Men was made into a memorable film starring Henry Fonda as Juror 8 and has since played on Broadway and beyond. Twelve Angry Men as

directed by Adam Furfaro is testament to his talent and experience in his eight seasons with Drayton Entertainment. Complimenting the onstage talent was a set so realistic in its legal institution feel right down to the heater grill and towel dispenser. The “rainstorm” was lovely and refreshing to hear and behold. Allan Wilbee was the off-stage talent. Audience members may leave the show not angry, but filled with images of themselves as the heroic Juror 8. Twelve Angry Men runs through to Oct. 24. Tickets can be booked by calling the Drayton Entertainment Box Office at 519-747-7788 or tollfree at 1-888-449-4463.

Guelph Little Theatre celebrates 75th anniversary with British comedy Bedside Manners

GUELPH Bedside Manners is the first show of the Guelph Little Theatre season as the troupe opens its 75th season on Oct. 15. The play is a comedy written by Derek Benfield and is directed by John Snowdon, an actor, director, and mentor for over 40 years. A reluctant Ferris is man– aging his sister’s seedy English country hotel while she’s on holiday. Two couples descend on the hotel with separate assignations in mind. Ferris discovers their

secrets and mischievously gets caught up in their lies, confusions, bewilderments and, of course, compromising situations. There are some goodly financial re–wards for himself as he tries to prevent the inevitable meeting of the husbands, wives and lovers. The Show runs to Oct. 30. Tickets are available by calling 519-821-0270 or by visiting www.guelphlittletheatre. com. Other shows in the coming season include: - To Kill A Mockingbird,

WORKER HYGIENE AND ON-FARM FOOD SAFETY by Jan Schooley, On-Farm Food Safety Program Lead Worker hygiene is an important part of an on-farm food safety program. It is one of the key practices that helps prevent the transfer of human pathogens to food. And worker hygiene is all about clean hands. It is easy to underestimate what hands can do in terms of food safety. Major outbreaks of foodborne illness have occurred because produce was handled by hands that were contaminated with pathogens. Prevention is the only way to reduce this risk on the farm. Hands need to be cleaned after breaks, after visits to the toilet, before handling product, packaging materials or surfaces that touch food. Ideally, workers (and you) should follow these three steps: 1. Wet hands with potable water and apply soap; 2. Scrub the surface of your hands, between fingers and under

nails, for 15 to 20 seconds – or about as long as it takes you to sing Happy Birthday to yourself twice. 3. Rinse hands with potable water and dry with a clean, disposable towel. Conditions in the field, however, are not always ideal. You will need to keep an adequate supply of hand sanitizer and hand sanitizing wipes where soap and water is not immediately available. Hand sanitizers work well to keep pathogens off hands, but sanitizers will not work on dirty hands. Before you or your workers use hand sanitizer in the field, wipe or rub as much dirt as possible off your hands. The dirtier your hands are, the less protection hand sanitizers will provide. Your hygiene practices need to be communicated to your employees. Your workers need to understand the connection between clean hands and foodborne illness if they are to do their part in preventing the transfer of human pathogens to your produce. You can use videos, available on-line from most Public Health units; signs and posters, available from OMAFRA; training tools such as the handwashing easel, also available from OMAFRA. It is not enough on a food safety program just to tell employees about these practices – you need to write down when training occurred and who was trained, and sign the document. Your hygiene practices need to be well thought out and written down. Clean hands are important enough to take time to develop a written practice outlining worker training and all the practices expected of everyone handling your produce. REMINDER!!

Benham, Program Representative The next EFP workshop will be held in the Elora OMAFRA boardroom at 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 20th to be completed Wednesday, October 27th.

REGINA – The average value of farmland in Canada increased by 3% in the first half of 2010, following gains of 3.6 and 2.9% in the two previ-

vides important information about changes in land values across Canada and is available at www.farmlandvalues.ca. Farmland values remained

by producers over the past 6 to 12 months. It’s important for buyers to consider those things in determining whether to purchase and what price to pay,” said Michael Hoffort, FCC senior vice-president of portfolio and credit risk. “Although some commonalities exist, this report shows that each province and even each region had

Canadian farmland values appear to be on continuous rise ous reporting periods, according to the Farm Credit Canada (FCC) Farmland Values Report released last week. Published twice a year, the report pro-

To view the provincial news releases, visit: http:// www.fcc-fac.ca/en/AboutUs/ Media/newsreleases_e.asp. “The prices paid for farmland today often reflect the conditions and events experienced

a unique set of factors that contributed to the change in farmland values.” “Competition for highly productive farmland is strong in parts of the country,” said Jean-Philippe Gervais, FCC Senior Agriculture Economist. This diversity ... demonstrates the strength of agriculture over the long term.”

Rural Life

Reduced income on farms will negatively affect finances for Ontario by Bette Jean Crews, President, Ontario Federation of Agriculture Did you know Ontario’s agriculture sector supports 164,000 jobs with over $7- billion in wages and salaries? A full $3.4-billion in government tax revenues are collected as a result of the economic activity generated by the farm output sector. This helps pay for our health care system, our schools and our infrastructure. Farm outputs contributed $22-billion in gross economic stimulus to Ontario in 2009. While those are impressive

numbers that show the economic impact and the potential of the agriculture sector, unfortunately those numbers - and the related impact on the provincial GDP - are in jeopardy. The Ontario Agriculture Sustainability Coalition commissioned a survey called the Economic Contribution of the Ontario Farm Sector and Economic Impact of a Reduction in Farm Income. The study determined the economic contribution of Ontario’s farm sector and the impact of a reduction in farm income, while focusing on the

connection between farming and Ontario’s GDP. Our net farm income in Ontario slid from $287-million on average from 2004 to 2008, to negative $50 million in 2009. That resulted in 4,000 jobs lost in the short-term. Long term implications are much more severe. OASC is developing practical solutions to manage farm income fluctuation to avoid these serious and negative impacts on Ontario’s economy. One message that OASC has been strongly advocating rang clear throughout the find-

ings in the study – agriculture matters to the province of Ontario, and it’s time to get serious about the future of farming. Governments rely on a healthy farming sector for tax revenue. The decrease in net farm income in 2009 resulted in a tax revenue loss of $82-million. The outlook for 2010 is even worse: a farm income loss of $500-million is projected, which will negatively impact Ontario’s GDP by $3-billion in the long term, along with a $450 million decrease in tax revenues.

Elora Farmers’ Market has a winter home The Elora Farmers’ Market has been a thriving hub of the community for five years. We are about to become a much anticipated year round market in partnership with Savour Elora Fergus. Through the support of the Grand River Agricultural Society a winter home has been secured for the Elora Farmers’ Market. The market will be situated indoors between the paddocks and the Lighthouse

Restaurant at the Grand River Raceway, located on Wellington Road 21. This location holds a number of advantages that have not been available to us elsewhere. Still in Elora, this warm space is large enough to accommodate our growing market and offers ample parking. The Elora Farmers’ Market’s belief in sustainable agriculture and the promotion of local growers and producers remains strong. The extension of the market to this

winter location further demonstrates our commitment. Plan to visit the Elora Farmers’ Market indoor winter setting, a great place to see your friends and neighbours. We look forward to seeing you there. Opening Date: Sat, Oct. 16, 2010 Time: Every Saturday, 9–1pm. Location: Grand River Raceway, 7445 Wellington Rd. 21

The hottest furnace dealer in town!

While the study does contain a lot of data, the bottom line is that agriculture is big business that Ontario cannot afford to lose. Seventy per cent of Ontario’s farm production is bought by Ontario food processors - a $33 billion industry that directly employs 110,000 Ontarians. As farmers we rely on our processors as buyers. As buyers, our processors rely on us to provide the safe, quality products at competitive prices. The whole industry is important to the health of our people and our economy. But the farm situation is serious. Through OASC, Ontario farms have expressed their concern about the financial health and stability of our farm sector as well as our future ability to grow our food locally while

contributing to the economic well-being of the province. The Ontario agriculture sector is in need of critical investment programming to not only maintain jobs across the province, but to adequately support Ontario’s economy. The Ontario Federation of Agriculture is working with OASC to implement predictable and bankable risk management programs that will assist in maintaining a viable farm sector for the province and build a sustainable farming and food economy. It’s time we implement real solutions in collaboration with our federal and provincial governments to drive the economy and contribute to a successful future for farming.

Required for the cast are two adult females who can play ages 38 to 45, one adult male to play ages 45 to 50, two teen girls to play ages 12 to 14 and 15 to 16, and two teen boys to play ages 14 and 19. Brighton Beach Memoirs centres around Eugene Morris Jerome, a 14 year old aspiring writer and baseball fanatic, and his family. The family lives in Brighton Beach, an ethnic neighbourhood in Brooklyn, New York, inhabited by Jewish, Polish, and Irish families. In 1937, with the depression at its height, with war looming in Germany, and extended family living and working together, the family deals with the situation with fatalistic good humour, and, Eugene’s reminiscences spell hilarity for the audiences.

will put the spotlight on children’s eye health. Canadian parents typically don’t understand how important eye health examinations are for their children. According to research conducted by Leger Marketing, few parents think it’s necessary to take their children to the optometrist before school age. This finding is supported by a survey of 400 Canadian optometrists, which indicated that only 10% of their patients are 12 years of age or younger. The objective of this year’s SeeingSmart theme is to make as many parents as possible, aware of how critical early eye exams are for their children. The campaign will highlight the importance of early detection, by looking at the story of Sarah Slingsby – at eight years of age her optometrist detected retinoblastoma. An eye exam saved her life. Find out how you can help promote Eye Health Month this October.

Best Birthday Wishes- When certain people celebrate a birthday, the whole community welcomes the chance to offer best wishes. Such was the case for Ruby Bell (left) in honour of her 95th birthday. Her daughter, Sandra Bird, and cousins, nieces, nephews, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren baked, cooked, shopped, and decorated the party room at Jamesway Manor in Clifford on Oct. 3. She was serenaded by flutist Karine Park and pianist Judith Anne Douglas; showered with greeting cards, flowers, and gifts; embraced with affectionate hugs and kisses. Ruby’s gentle spirit, endearing qualities, and sparkling smile has created a wide circle of friendship. The warmth she bestows on others has returned ten fold and continues to shine upon her every day. Best wishes and blessings to you Ruby contributed photo

Horoscopes - For the third week of October -

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, you must express a great deal of passion in your heart. Find that special someone and let him or her know just how you feel.

SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, you could find that all that’s needed is a small spark to rekindle a big flame in the romance department. Focus a lot of energy on your love life this week.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Trust your instincts, Taurus, even when it seems they may be holding you back. Realize that you know more than you think and have a good handle on the situation.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, you have been going to extremes in your life as of late. It doesn’t have to be that way, though. Mellow out and take a more centralized approach.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, now is the time to take a trip with a friend or loved one. You need a break from reality, and this is your chance to get away for awhile. Expect work when you get back, though.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, avoid questioning the motivations of others this week. Pay such thoughts no mind at all. As long as you trust your instincts, all will work out.

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, seize the day and make the most of what’s at hand. Get outdoors, socialize and be adventurous. You will enjoy what happens as a result. Thursday is a power day for you.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, don’t get swept up in old patterns. It’s time to try something new and gain a fresh perspective on your life. All it will take is a few minor changes.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Things flow very well for you this week, Leo. Where issues of love and beauty are concerned, you will find great success. Watch out for Aquarius in the days to come.

PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, you have a great deal of energy but don’t know where to focus it. Why not visit a friend and spend time together?

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Go for the gold, Virgo. Sitting back and doing nothing this week will get you nowhere. Feel free to experiment with things you enjoy or want to try. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, your love life is full of complicated patterns and you’re not quite sure in which direction to go. Talk to your partner and find out what he or she desires.
