Investigation ongoing after suspicious McGregor Music Festival Murray St. fire CONTINUED FROM > PAGE 1

Ron Giofu The Amherstburg Echo AMHERSTBURG — The investigation is ongoing after a suspicious fire late last Wednesday night on Murray Street. The Amherstburg Fire Department has estimated the damage at the residence to be $100,000. No one was injured as the building, as its apartments had been checked to ensure they were unoccupied. Deputy Chief Jim Ouellette said firefighters from Stations 1 and 2 were on scene for over two hours. “The flames were shooting over the roof. The

flames were probably 20-feet in the air,” said Ouellette. “The guys knocked it down pretty quickly. The guys did a good job.” Approximately 30 firefighters and additional pieces of firefighting equipment were on scene, Ouellette added. Investigation into the blaze is ongoing and involves more than just the local fire serve. Amherstburg police are now actively conducting its own investigation into the blaze. Police say the blaze was in an upper apartment at the building. “Given the circumstances of the fire, the Ontario Fire Marshal has been notified and the investigation is now being conducted by the police department,” said Ouellette.

LeClair said there was a wide variety of music as well as the car show and motorcycle show to keep people entertained. She credited the committee as well as the crowd for helping to make the event a success. “I wouldn’t know what to do without them,” said LeClair. The Windsor-Essex County Cancer Centre Foundation, the fundraising arm of the Windsor Regional Cancer Centre

(WRCC), was chosen due to the committee’s belief that most people in the area have been touched by the disease in way or another. This year’s proceeds will be put towards a future purchase of the Davinci Robotic Surgical System at the WRCC. That device assists men who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer. The McGregor Music Festival is currently the only major fundraiser for the Windsor-Essex County Cancer Centre Foundation held in Essex County.

Fundraising campaign launched to help develop Essex-Amherstburg Greenway Ron Giofu The Amherstburg Echo McGREGOR — A fundraising campaign has been officially launched to fully develop the EssexAmherstburg Greenway. The campaign started June 7 at the Chrysler Canada Greenway entrance on County Rd. 8, just east of Walker Road. Caesars Windsor got the ball rolling with a $25,000 donation. For that donation to the new campaign, the Essex Region Conservation Authority (ERCA) and the Essex Region Conservation Foundation (ERCF) named that entrance to the Chrysler Canada Greenway the Caesars Windsor Community Entrance. ERCF president Ken Schmidt explained the foundation is the fundraising arm of the authority and the foundation’s top priority is now fundraising for the 22-kilometre Essex-Amherstburg Greenway trail. The goal is $750,000. Trails are a focal point of the ERCF, Schmidt added, and the Essex-Amherstburg Greenway trail will link those two municipalities into the Chrysler Canada Greenway. “We are so grateful to Caesars Windsor for being the lead donor towards this fundraising campaign,” said Schmidt. “One of the foundation’s strategic priorities is to continue to build a regional trail network to connect people and landscapes and link our human and environmental health with a stronger economy. It is a contribution that is significant because it is the beginning of this new campaign.” Schmidt said he was pleased to see a large company like Caesars Windsor recognize a connection between people and healthy living but also realize economic benefits such as eco-tourism. “Like ‘Field of Dreams,’ if you build it, they will come,” said Schmidt. Caesars Windsor president and CEO Kevin Laforet said the $25,000 contribution will be paid over two years. He said it’s “a natural fit” with the “Code Green” initiative that employees and management participate in alike at Caesars Windsor. He said the Caesars Windsor is proud to support the

cause, noting it encourages people in the region to “connect with the environment in a healthy, active lifestyle” and indicated the partnership with ERCA and the ERCF could continue. “We look forward to our partnership with ERCA

It is a great way for Essex County residents to connect in an environmental way.” — Caesars Windsor president and CEO Kevin Laforet and the foundation as part of a grander Caesars entertainment strategy, Code Green, whose goal is to engage and educate our employees and customers in an effort to reduce our company’s carbon footprint in all of our business practices.” Laforet added, “it is a great way for Essex County residents to connect in an environmental way.” Warden Tom Bain said he has seen a big change in the last 10 years with more and more people asking for trails and similar amenities. “Now the big demand is for healthy living and to get trails,” said Bain. “We need to keep our population healthy.” Bain noted there are more plans in the works and said it is important to keep building trails in Essex County. “We’ve got to get work done in Essex County. It’s so important we get these trails,” said Bain. John Scott, an ERCA board member and Essex town councillor, said 98% of respondents to the County Wide Active Transportation Study indicated they would use trails if the trails connected towns. There are two portions of the Essex-Amherstburg trail that have been developed, Schmidt pointed out, with those stretches being in Essex and McGregor.

Unknown woman claims to be CAS worker AMHERSTBURG — Police are investigating a complaint that an unknown woman visited a local home while claiming to be a caseworker with the Windsor-Essex County Children’s Aid Society (CAS). Police say the women visited the Amherstburg home April 10 asking to check on the well-being of the child. The woman identified herself as an afterhours CAS caseworker investigating a complaint that the parent had burned her child. Police say the woman removed child’s clothes and after an inspection told the parent she would be contacted by her regular caseworker as a follow-up. When the parent did not hear from her regular case worker after several days, she contacted the CAS, which checked its records and canvassed staff but could not find the woman who visited the home. The caseworker is described as about age 30 with a medium build. She has long black hair and a lanyard that appeared to be issued by the CAS to identify caseworkers and staff. According to a media release sent out by CAS, the agency became aware of the situation

and contacted the police. CAS conducted its own internal investigation and concluded the woman was not a member of its staff, and would continue to support the police investigation. The release serves as a reminder to the public that when CAS responds to an allegation and initiates an investigation, the child protection workers attending a home must introduce themselves, state the intent of the visit, and have their identification badge with photo visible. Workers also have personal business cards that can be left with the family for follow-up, the media release stated. “An incident like this can be alarming however the public should be aware that if someone attends their home or organization stating that they are a CAS worker it is their right to ask that the individual produces ID. If there are concerns they should report them directly to the CAS or their local police department immediately,” stated Bill Bevan, CEO of the Windsor-Essex Children’s Aid Society. Police are asking anyone with information to contact 519-736-8559 and ask to speak with Det. Const. Aaron Chambers.

TV profile will hopefully be worth unbudgeted expense

A

mherstburg town council agreed with going ahead with an unbudgeted $24,800 expense Monday night to participate in the Viewpoints with Terry Bradshaw television program. The funding will be financed through the working capital reserve but while approving an unbudgeted expense isn’t the most ideal way to proceed, in this case it can be understood. The town stands to get massive exposure in the program which, when complete, will be televised nationally on BNN and in the U.S. on the Discovery Channel as well as being broadcast on regional news networks. It is tough, likely impossible, to budget for such exposure. It was the Viewpoints with Terry Bradshaw television series and associate producer Marc Gottfried who reached out and contact the town of Amherstburg. The exposure the town can get is enormous and, if the right people watch, it could lead to people moving here and investing here. The kicker is the fact the town gets to keep the segment once it has been completed and aired. This is not a one-shot deal. The town can use the segment down the road to further promote the community. That fact should not go unnoticed as the town gets to keep what it invested in and not just reap the rewards it hopes to obtain when this fiveminute segment is broadcast on television. The town has invested much in the way of tourism and festivals. The goal has been to draw people to Amherstburg with the hope of giving residents something to enjoy and draw new people and investment to the community. If this television series helps bring people to town, it will be worth the investment. Yes, an unbudgeted expenditure is usually not the way to go but in this case it could be worth it. Unbudgeted expenditures should not become a pattern but hopefully greater promotion of Amherstburg will become a pattern.

passing Rotary Club offers thanks to community for Beef in the Burg

Former councillor, veteran and business owner Tom Hamilton dies at age 86 Echo Staff AMHERSTBURG — A prominent local citizen and former town council member has died. Tom Hamilton died June 7 at age 86. Hamilton was a former local business owner, singer and served Amherstburg as both councillor and deputy reeve. He also served in the Second World War with the RCAF. “He was an active member of the town of Amherstburg,” said Mayor Wayne Hurst. “He served the community in many ways.” Hamilton was a lifelong resident of Amherstburg and his political career also included a tenure on the Police Services Board. Hamilton was also choir director at St. John the Baptist Church for many years, and his prolific singing voice was heard at weddings, funerals, and in Windsor Light Opera productions.

This year’s “Beef in the Burg” was a huge success and we thank everyone who came out and enjoyed the delicious roast beef. This event would not be possible without a tremendous amount of donations and help from the community. A special thank you to Sobeys for donating the food and to Rosa White for preparing and serving it. A great big thank you to the following: Rennie Rota and Sobeys, Chuck Kelly from The Athletic Club, Gerry and Rita Kavanaugh from Sears, the To w n o f A m h e r s t b u r g , S o u t h S h o r e

His was one of the names read aloud as a veteran who had died within the last two years and Rev. John Burkhart mentioned Hamilton’s recent death during an opening prayer. “He was an advocate for the town,” said Hurst. “We offer our condolences and we offer our best wishes to his family in this period of bereavement.” Hamilton was married to wife Joan for 58 years. His children included Robi, Sean, Martel and Jason. Sean died in 1990. He had two grandchildren. Hamilton’s funeral was held at St. John the Baptist Church Monday morning.

Council seeks report on how much been paid in lawsuits Ron Giofu The Amherstburg Echo AMHERSTBURG — Town council will be getting a report back in the next few weeks which they hope will detail how much money the town has paid off in lawsuits. Mayor Wayne Hurst wondered aloud during the meeting if any other members of council were hearing anything about a settlement with former councillor Rick Fryer. Fryer had sued the town regarding an ankle injury he suffered while door-to-door campaigning in the 2006 municipal election. After the meeting, Hurst told reporters he had not heard first-hand that a settlement had been reached but said there was scuttlebutt in the community to that end. “I have heard there was a settlement through rumors,” said Hurst. “How are you going to know if you haven’t been told?” Coun. Bob Pillon said he had been approached “by a couple of people” on the issue and put forth the motion to get a report on the town’s lawsuit situation dating back to 2007 and how they

have impacted insurance rates. Coun. Diane Pouget questioned why Pillon wanted to go back to 2007 and Pillon explained that is when insurance rates started to escalate. “Let’s get a fairly accurate report and let taxpayers know where our money is going,” he said. Pouget wondered how much settlement information will be public knowledge. “Most of the time on lawsuits, you are silent on it,” said Pouget. Coun. Bart DiPasquale agreed, noting that in civil cases the amount is often sealed and cannot be disclosed. “How do we get around that? We don’t have the authority to break a judge’s order,” said DiPasquale. Hurst said taxpayers have a right to know where their money is going and “that shouldn’t be silenced.” Coun. John Sutton said the idea that one can sue the town but the amount of settlement not disclosed is “a direct slap in the face to our taxpayers who deserve to know where there money is going. “That level of transparency is owed to our taxpayers,” said Sutton.

Amherstburg Echo • Thursday, June 14, 2012

Town approves $24,800 cost for TV exposure across North America Ron Giofu The Amherstburg Echo AMHERSTBURG — The town has approved an unbudgeted $24,800 expenditure but will get North American television exposure in return. Amherstburg will be profiled on the Viewpoints with Terry Bradshaw television series and will be the subject of a five-minute profile piece on the program. It will be broadcast 35 times including a national broadcast in Canada on Business News Network (BNN) and in the U.S. on the Discovery Channel. A total of 33 more airings will occur throughout Canada and the U.S. on regional news networks. Upon completion, the town gets to keep the clip. “The purpose of this show is to educate people on the best places to live, work and

play,” said associate producer Marc Gottfried by conference call. Gottfried explained that Bradshaw will introduce the clip with the community then profiled with at least one interview with a local resident. Once approvals from all parties is obtained, Gottfried said scripting would begin shortly thereafter. Gottfried said his research staff was given a criteria on what to look for and when he read an article about Amherstburg, it caught his attention. “This opportunity will allow us to showcase Amherstburg across North America,” noted acting CAO Kristina Pozar DiPaolo. “This is a wonderful opportunity to increase our profile and presence and showcase Amherstburg as the best place to live, work and play,” said Mayor Wayne Hurst.

Hurst noted it was the town that was contacted and said the recognition is welcome. “It makes you feel good. It’s a wonderful opportunity for the residents of Amherstburg,” he said. “We truly believe when you do the little things right, big things happen.” The town has great assets in the urban area, he noted, but in the rural areas as well. “We have a vast amount of agricultural areas that produce food for not just this area but around the world,” said Hurst. Coun. John Sutton believed recognition likes this shows past infrastructure investments by previous councils were worthwhile. “There’s an investment required but I think it is recognition of the investments we have made,” said Sutton. Sutton noted Amherstburg was recognized by Statistics Canada as the safest community in Canada and has a great working relation-

ship with senior levels of government. “It really is a feather in our cap and something our citizens should be proud of,” he added. Coun. Bart DiPasquale noted other towns have spent more money on video profile pieces but have not gotten as much exposure. He liked the fact the town gets to keep the segment and hopes it could be used even further down the road. “I’m quite impressed with this presentation,” he said. “I think it’s a positive step to get involved with this.” Coun. Diane Pouget acknowledged it was an unbudgeted expenditure but believed the exposure the town will get through the television program will well serve the community. “It’s great. The best part of this whole thing is they approached us,” said Coun. Bob Pillon.

Residents opposed to proposed waste disposal site on Howard Ave. Ron Giofu The Amherstburg Echo AMHERSTBURG — Residents of Howard Avenue and Concession 8 North have told council they don’t want a waste disposal site in the area. Town council held a planning meeting June 7 when residents urged rejection of an application from the Jones Group to rezone 18.5 acres of land at 7809 Howard Ave. from agricultural to special provision heavy industrial with a holding

provision. Planning co-ordinator Lory Bratt said the property is designated as heavy industrial in the town’s Official Plan and the application is in line with both the Official Plan and Provincial Policy Statements. Sites north and south of the proposed development have industrial designations, she added. Planning consultant Jean Monteith said there are maximum allowable setbacks in the proposed agreement to try and mitigate concerns of

residents. Melanie Muir, project planner with Dillon Consulting, said the site would handle such non-hazardous materials such as asphalt, concrete and wood and store shells of vehicles. She noted a leftturn lane into the site is being contemplated to alleviate traffic concerns on the road. Residents voiced concerns with noise, dust and smell. Pat Lucier said residents have suffered from headaches in the past and have lost the enjoyment of their yards. She said the Jones Group has lost the trust of the neighborhood. “Through their own doing, they have lost our faith and our trust,” she said. Lucier feared property values would be negatively impacted and said a proposed berm for the property would still not solve issues residents would have. “If this should be approved, I think there is a lot that has to be re-adjusted for the neighbours,” said Lucier. Marie Vieira feared there would be additional health issues for neighbors

and agreed there is “very little trust” in the Jones Group. “There’s just so many negatives to residents in the area,” she said. “We really do oppose this in our back yards.” Larry Bergeron wondered what the enforcement level would be if there were any violations to any agreed to conditions. He also said there are trust issues. Bergeron further questioned putting a waste disposal site on Howard Ave., which he said is a “main thoroughfare” in the town. “It makes no common sense to anybody,” said Bergeron. “Put it somewhere where it is not going to affect people. We elected (council) to protect us. Do it.” Coun. Diane Pouget requested a report from administration detailing alleged violations the Jones Group had at the site in the past. “I feel we need to have the whole story before we make a decision,” said Pouget. “From our Family to yours since 1967” Coun. Carolyn Davies said the trust issues need to be resolved and said she was concerned about air quality as well. While glad to hear about a proposed left turn lane, the issue of flying debris was also a concern. “We need (Jones Group) to be community f o c u s e d ,” s a i d Davies. “It’s got to + HST be responsible, Double Cheese is Extra COUPON REQUIRED ethical and ndth th Expires: June ,2012 2012 Expires: April, 30 2229 2012 2012 Expires: Expires:January, June, 17 moral.”

Rotary Club’s ‘Beef in the Burg’ attracts over 400 hungry patrons to Toddy Jones Park Ron Giofu The Amherstburg Echo AMHERSTBURG — Attendance was at a record high at the “Beef in the Burg” event at Toddy Jones Park on June 6. “We served over 400 meals, best year to date,” said Rotary member Carl Gibb. “It turned out really well.” Original plans were for 350 people, meaning goals were surpassed for this year’s event. Proceeds will fund various Rotary Club projects including funding polio research, Easter Seals and the operations of the Park House Museum. “It takes a lot of money to support these projects,” said Gibb. Some of the secrets for the success of the event includes the quality of the food and the support of the sponsors. If it weren’t for local businesses donating to the event, it could not happen, said Gibb. Moving the event to Wednesday, something the Rotary Club started last year, was another factor. “Our research said that was a good time to have it,” said Gibb. Rennie Rota, owner of the Sobeys franchise in Amherstburg, helped by donating much of the food but gave credit to the weather for such a great turnout. “It’s a glorious day again. This is wonderful,” he said. CONTINUED FROM < PAGE 6

Coun. Bob Pillon said the Jones Group bought the property with the understanding of its heavy industrial designation. He believed residents could be assured the project would be done correctly due to the amount of

Rota said he does it because Rotary is a good cause and it is fun to get involved with Beef in the Burg. He said 250 pounds of beef was donated and subsequently prepared at the Verdi Club. Rota also praised Dennis Pajot of Dempsters for helping donate buns and former councillor and restaurant owner Rosa White for helping to serve the meals. “It’s all community oriented,” said Rota. Despite now living in LaSalle, White said Amherstburg is still important to her. “Amherstburg is still part of my life,” she said. “I really enjoy giving back. It’s great for the community. I enjoy working with people.” White noted Rotary has been contributor in Amherstburg over the years and she wanted to show her appreciation for the club. “This is my way of giving back,” said White. Rotary Club president Lena Lazanja said Beef in the Burg is the “perfect lead-in” for the club’s next major event, the July 6 to 8 Ribfest at Centennial Park. “Every year it seems to get better and better,” she said of Beef in the Burg. “As always, we get a fantastic turnout. The weather has been great.”

The Rotary Club’s “Beef in the Burg” event served over 400 meals to the hungry public at Toddy Jones Park last Wednesday evening. Rotarians were assisted by community volunteers such as Bart DiPaolo, Mike Bates, Tim Girard and Barry Loreto.

approvals and conditions being placed by not only the town but agencies such as the Ministry of the Environment and ERCA. “I think people can be kind of relaxed. It’s a long process. There are a lot of eyes on this. It’s going to be done right,” said Pillon.

200 enjoy NABHM’s third annual Ribs & Ragtime Ron Giofu The Amherstburg Echo AMHERSTBURG — The North American Black Historical Museum held its third annual “Ribs & Ragtime” event to good reviews on June 9. The event drew approximately 200 people to the NABHM’s grounds on King Street where they enjoyed food prepared by Smoke & Spice Southern Barbeque and the music of the jazz band Straight Ahead and ragtime pianist Taslimah Bey. NABHM board president Monty Logan said it was a “fantastic day” and hopes for an even bigger turnout next year. “Hopefully next year we’ll have the place packed,” said Logan. There were two stages this year – one at the front of the property and one at the back – so that people could see the entertainment regardless of where they sat. It was a suggestion the NABHM heard from previous Ribs & Ragtime events. While the event helped from an exposure standpoint, it also assists the nonprofit museum by raising some money as well. “It also helps from a fundraising standpoint. Events like this support the museum,” said Logan. Logan noted the fundraising

committee and vice-president Nneka Allen worked hard on the event and said the work paid off. He said it drew people from not just the Windsor-Essex County area including southeastern Michigan and the Toronto-area. “They come from near and far,” said Logan. NABHM curator/administrator Kenn Stanton said the museum was happy with how the event shaped up. “It’s great. We have a nice turnout,” said Stanton. “We’re really happy with the community’s response to the event.” Stanton said they have room for 250 people on the museum grounds before they would have to think about spilling over into the street. They hope it grows next year with the fourth annual Ribs & Ragtime scheduled for June 8 next year. The museum planned on it being a relaxed, intimate environment, he added, and believes that has been why the event is blossoming like it is. “There is a class to the event,” he said. Stanton also pointed out the museum and Nazrey AME Church on the grounds were left open so that people could take a tour as well. He said it was another opportunity to blend entertainment with culture with the public being given the chance to get educated on the area’s Black history.

Amherstburg native part of 2012 Stanley Cup champions The Echo AMHERSTBURG — An Amherstburg native celebrated the 2012 Stanley Cup championship Monday night. Kevin Westgarth, a graduate of General Amherst High School, did not play a post-season game with the Los Angeles Kings, but the 28-year-old Amherstburg native played in 25 regular season games with the Stanley Cup champs, scoring one goal and one assist for two points.

Local musician releases first solo CD

RACICOT CHRYSLER

Ron Giofu The Amherstburg Echo AMHERSTBURG — A local musician has gone out on his own and released his first solo CD. Kevin Jarvis, formerly of the band Eight Past Nine, has released his new solo CD “Beautifully Gloomy” after previously releasing two CD’s while in the band. “This is my first solo effort with just me. I’m the writer, producer, everything,” said Jarvis. “The official release hasn’t been picked yet. It’s officially for sale now.” Jarvis said the experience was different for him as he was entirely in charge and could create the music any way he wanted to. “This CD is definitely me. It’s about real life experiences,” said Jarvis. “There’s no hypothetical songs on this disc. I’m hoping that will come across to people.” Beautifully Gloomy took 26 months to create and features seven songs. He said it took that long because of work and family commitments, adding he doesn’t regret that as “that’s just life.” Eight Past Nine was an “awesome” experience, he said, but the group broke up when they wanted to different directions musically. “It really was a mutual thing to try our own things musically,” said Jarvis. Jarvis still remains friends with his former band members, including local resident Will Hawksworth. Hawksworth helped with the design of the CD package. “We still have tight bonds together,” said Jarvis. The CD is $15 and those who purchase it at the House of Shalom Youth Centre will see $5 of the purchase price donated back to the House of Shalom. Other locations it is on sale are Hawksworth Designs and the University of Windsor bookstore. The Beautifully Gloomy CD will also be available at Chapters in mid-July, Jarvis added, with the music to also be available digitally around that time as

Jarvis hopes to get out into bars, theatres and festivals shortly and said an upcoming gig will be the July 15 Relay for Life event at the Vollmer Complex in LaSalle. He said he enjoys playing at charitable functions. “I like helping people that way,” he said. Reviews have been positive thus far, he said. Radio DJs thus far love the release and Jarvis is trying to get noticed more and more by mainstream radio. “So far, it’s been great feedback,” he said. More feedback is welcome, he added, as the public is welcome to contact him through the Facebook page. “I really hope people pick it up and enjoy it. Give me some feedback on it,” he said. Unsolicited feedback is one of his favorite parts of the process, he said. “You know that’s genuine,” said Jarvis.

AMHERSTBURG POLICE SERVICE CONTINUED FROM > PAGE 3

Fraud Police are investigating a fraud where a person was scammed out of $8,000. Police say it is a new type of scam where a person will contact a resident by such social media devices as, in this case, Facebook and attempt to form a relationship. The 54-year-old woman contacted from a person in Florida and after a brief relationship, the person in Florida claimed to be moving to Canada. The person claimed to want to move in with the victim and asked her to look after a container that was allegedly shipped with a cash incentive offered.

Peter was born and raised in Amherstburg and is excited to be back in his hometown and is looking forward to being part of the Chrysler family.

Police say the victim was then contacted about a port fee of $8,000, which was sent. When a followup fee of $23,000 was requested, the victim became suspicious and contacted police. Police urge the public to be vigilant with their money and be cautious about their transactions.

We invite his family and friends and most importantly the people of Amherstburg to welcome him back home.

Accident Police are investigating a fail to remain accident that occurred on Front Road North. Police say the driver of a pick-up truck attended the police station where it was reported his vehicle’s side mirror was sheared off by the mirror of a passing vehicle and left the scene. The suspect vehicle, whose mirror landed in the box of the man’s truck, is believed to be a truck or van. The accident was reported at 2:41 p.m. June 4.

Anderdon music teacher tuning up for her retirement Ron Giofu The Amherstburg Echo AMHERSTBURG — The final notes are being played in the 31-year teaching career of Melody Fitzpatrick. Fitzpatrick, Anderdon Public School’s music teacher, is retiring this month after spending over three decades in education. She began as a student teacher at Anderdon in 1979 before being hired as a supply teacher in Windsor in 1980. She was hired by the former Essex County Board of Education in 1981. Fitzpatrick returned to Anderdon Public School in 1988 after stops in Leamington and Tecumseh. “Everyone who ever comes here says this is a g re at s c h o o l , a ha p py p l a c e t o b e,” s a i d Fitzpatrick. “The staff has always been warm, friendly and passionate about the students.” Fitzpatrick, who has a degree in music, said she was likely hired in 1981 because of her background. She taught kindergarten at first but also taught a class to older students. “I taught ukelele to Grade 6’s,” she said with a laugh. While she said she has had a wonderful career, it didn’t start out perfectly. Fitzpatrick recalled her first day being very warm outside and the decision of whether to keep her classroom stifling hot or open the window even though a pig farm was in back of the school. To add to it, her first day also featured a girl in her classroom vomiting. “I thought, ‘this is not a good first day,’” she recalled. “It’s gotten better and better.” Upon her return to Anderdon 24 years ago, she taught junior kindergarten at the school. She moved into music four years later when the school’s music teacher transferred. Fitzpatrick said she has had principals either with music or drama backgrounds so that helped her career. Former principal Ray Kenney would team with Fitzpatrick on 10 large musicals while other principals that followed also giving her support. “I couldn’t have been luckier that way,” she said. Other highlights have included the school’s wind ensemble regularly taking first place at the

Kiwanis Music Festival and the formation of a marching and concert band with Marlborough Public School in Windsor. Fitzpatrick said she formed the band with colleague Tim Beneteau and that has been a partnership that has worked well with students making new friends along the way. “We wanted to combine the city and county kids some way,” she said. Places the band has entertained have included both the Santa Claus and baseball parades in Amherstburg, Canada’s Wonderland and the opening ceremonies for the Special Olympics. “It’s just so great for our kids to give back to the community.” Another highlight was turning on the 2010 Winter Olympics opening ceremonies and seeing former student Greg Samek performing in one of the bands featured. “That’s really cool to see one of your students in the Olympics,” she said. Fitzpatrick said it’s time to retire as she has family commitments and also wants to make room for new teachers. She said she is impressed with the new teachers that are graduating out of university and feels education will be in good hands. Fitzpatrick added she is also “sad to leave. I’m having a hard time leaving. It’s my second home, really. You become attached.” Music will continue to be part of her life in retirement. She plans to become involved with her father’s band, Bob Brew & The Dalhousie St. Paraders, and also plans to staying involved with the Gemini Wind Ensemble concert band. Getting into home staging, where she would give design tips to home sellers, is another idea she is looking at. She also hopes to help out at Anderdon Public, if possible. That being said, she is also going to miss teaching and the staff, students and parents at Anderdon Public School. “You always feel a little bit of excitement you are retiring and made it through 31 years and accomplished what you’ve accomplished,” she said. “I think this is the best job. Working with the kids from Anderdon and the community, I feel so blessed. Anderdon has amazing, talented, smart, caring students. I am proud to be able to work with them.”

Anderdon Public School music teacher Melody Fitzpatrick is calling it a career at the end of this school year. She has taught 31 years and has been at Anderdon since 1988.

Mastrodicasa retires after 37 years of teaching Ron Giofu The Amherstburg Echo AMHERSTBURG — Kay Mastrodicasa joked it’s “goodbye tension, hello pension” very soon. However, the long-time Stella Maris School teacher said she is still going to miss the students, staff and parents. Mastrodicasa is retiring later this month after spending her entire 37-year teaching career at Stella Maris School. The school held an assembly in her honour last Thursday afternoon where students and staff sang songs to her, read “Top 10” lists, performed skits and showed their appreciation to “Ms. Mastro.” “That was one of the best assemblies I’ve ever seen,” she said with a laugh. In a more serious moment, Mastrodicasa held back tears as she told the school how much she is going to miss it. She thanked the students, both past and present. “You have given me many years of happiness,” said Mastrodicasa. Mastrodicasa also thanked the staff

AD{65404846}

and parents, noting they have made her job a lot easier over the years. “I feel so happy. This is a wonderful school,” she said, after the assembly. “I’m going to miss all of them. The school has great school spirit. I’m proud to have been part of it for 37 years. In my opinion, it’s the best school in the county.” Spending time with her family, including her grandchild, is something she plans on doing in retirement. “Thirty-seven years is a long time and I’m ready for a new adventure,” she said. While technology has changed over the years, the basics haven’t. She still said teaching reading, writing and math matter and those are still as important today as they were 37 years ago. Mastrodicasa began her career teaching senior levels including Grades 6-8 but as her career progressed, she taught more primary grades. Grade 3 was the grade she taught most with her final class being a CONTINUED > PAGE 11

Grand unveiling of revamped shoreline celebrated at River Canard Park Ron Giofu The Amherstburg Echo RIVER CANARD — Dignitaries, school children and community volunteers gathered at River Canard Park to officially unveil the newly revamped shoreline. The $250,000 project has concluded and the outcome celebrated at the re-opening held last Wednesday morning. Students from nearby St. Joseph School joined the local politicians and ERCA officials in celebrating the new look shoreline. The students planted approximately 300 more wildflowers at the site, in addition to the 1,200 that were put in the previous Saturday at a community planting. “Approximately 200 metres of shoreline were restored using soft shoreline techniques to improve fish habitat and to protect the park from erosion,” explained ERCA chair Percy Hatfield. “Approximately 25 different fish species are known to feed and spawn in the Canard River, including federally and provincially rare species.” Hatfield noted the project was inspired by the Friends of Canard River group. From there, it blossomed to where ERCA got behind it as well as a wide variety of groups. Elise Harding-Davis, representing Essex MP Jeff Watson, noted there was a multicultural aspect to the project as well, noting River Canard’s roots as a francophone settlement. “It’s always invigorating to see communities come together to produce something everyone can enjoy,” said Harding-Davis. “Jeff is just thrilled for this to be happening today.” Harding-Davis was pleased to see the involvement of the St. Joseph School students as well. “We know this park will be here when they are ready to bring their children,” she said. In a release, Watson acknowledged the partnerships that took place to make the shoreline resto-

ration a reality. “The Government of Canada would like to extend its appreciation to the many partners involved in this initiative,” said Watson. “The Essex Region Conservation Authority, Town off LaSalle, Town of Amherstburg, Environment Canada, Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, Ontario Ministry of Environment, Essex County Stewardship Network, Friends of Canard River, West Windsor Power and Amherst Quarries Ltd. all contributed to this project, which proceeded as part of the Detroit River Canadian Cleanup initiative.” The federal government contributed $120,000 to the effort. Mayor Wayne Hurst also noted the partnerships that took place throughout the process. “When you look at what has transpired here, it’s a tremendous testament to partnering together,” said Hurst. “It shows we all desiring to have an environment that is sustainable. This type off project strengthens and builds communities.” LaSalle councillor Ray Renaud, an ERCA board d member, said that town has always had a good d relationship with Amherstburg. Both towns sharee ownership of the park. Renaud noted such h projects as the River Canard Park shoreline resto-ration would not happen without other outsidee partnerships as well. “These are projects that municipalities on ourr own have difficulty doing or completing,” said d Renaud. “The money has to go to other priorities.” A walking trail and two large viewing platformss were constructed, one of which connects to a floating fishing platform in a small embayment. t. Native trees and shrubs were planted and educaational signage was installed to highlight the enviironmental features of the Canard River. The park k also has a small boat ramp which allows access byy kayakers and canoeists, although the latter wass not part of the project.

Grade 2/3 split. Feeling lucky to be able to stay at Stella Maris School for 37 years, Mastrodicasa said she has taught multiple generations of families. “I’ve taught teachers here,” she said. “I’ve taught children of students I first taught.” Overall, she will look back on her career with fondness. “It’s amazing and wonderful. I loved every minute of it,” she said. “It was my home away from home.” The assembly was organized by teacher Adrianna Costa-Meloche, whose efforts were appreciated by Mastrodicasa as were the efforts of all the teachers played a part in it. “We put together this assembly to say thank you for 37 years of dedicated service to your students,” said CostaMeloche. Parent council treasurer Debbie Lang said that Mastrodicasa’s presence will be missed in the hallways while principal Bridget Russo said that Mast ro d i c a s a w a s d e d i c a t e d t o h e r students. “You always gave them the best education possible and always encouraged them to try their best,” Russo told Mastrodicasa.

Amherstburg Echo • Thursday, June 14, 2012

Kingsville man makes his home in Brazilian jungle Cheryl Vigh-Basden Special/QMI Agency Joshua Turner reached a pivotal moment at the end of his high school career eight years ago. He was torn between his interests in religion and fire and rescue. When Turner was presented with both career opportunities on the same evening, the choice was clear. “After I opened my acceptance letter from Christ For The Nations, the same night I learned of an opening at the (Kingsville) fire hall. I made the decision immediately,” says Turner, now 26. His desire to learn more about God eventually led him deep into the Amazon where he lives today among the Tikuna Tribe of Brazil, the largest tribe in the Amazon. Turner has recently returned home to Kingsville for a few months with his wife Tania, a native Tikuna, and their 18-month-old son Jarvis. Thousands of miles from the location and culture of Kingsville, Turner teaches English to youth in a small school in a remote jungle region about a half hour walk along rough terrain from his two-bedroom home. He also performs frontier missionary work including translation for medical clinics, feeding programs for local children, construction, water purification projects, teaching and preaching in native churches with access into remote areas where isolated tribes live. The couple truly lives off the land where survival consumes much of their time. “There are no roads so to get from A to B is a challenge and the heat alone takes a toll,” says Turner. Their small home does not include washroom facilities – they have an outhouse and bathe and wash dishes in the nearby fresh water stream. The yearly return home is an adjustment for them. “You come back here (to Kingsville) and there are so many luxuries.” The road to the Amazon actually began with Turner’s decision to attend Christ For The Nations. At age 18, Turner left his Kingsville home to attend the renowned Bible school in Dallas. Turner was impressed with the international students drawn to the Institute. “Any country was represented there and I just clicked with all these international people. I started learning Spanish through my two years there and near the end of my schooling I had a desire to go to South Amer ica,” Turner explains. He made friends with a student from Leticia, Colombia and the friend invited him to come and stay for a year. At the same time, Turner had met the daughter of George Gonzalez, the director of Amazon Xpeditions Outreach Inc. Gonzalez invited Turner to join their ministry and become a missionary in that part of Colombia. A month after college Turner was on a plane to Colombia. They arrived in

Leticia, a town Turner describes as a ‘door into the Amazon region’ bordering Brazil and Peru. “Two national airports are side by side in the middle of the jungle,” describes Turner. Outside of Leticia there are no roads or hydro, only primitive tribes who live off the land. On arrival, Turner began working at an orphanage teaching English to high risk children in this Southern Colombian community. “Periodically George would come back with a medical team or a construction team so we would go out by boat to remote areas and perform whatever mission work was required,” Turner explains. Turner committed to a year there and returned back to Kingsville when his time was done. He went back to work with his father at their family business, Essex Home Furnishings. But he knew he belonged back in the Amazon. “People there are just a lot different in how they care for one another,” he says. “People take more interest in knowing you. It’s a little more relational down there.” Turner stayed in communication with his friend Tania by email while back home and after six months he resolved to return. “That first year was intense. One of the goals (of Amazon Xpeditions) is to get to work with isolated tribes – tribes that have never heard of the gospel and are in dire need of medical attention. To help them in that area and at the same time share the gospel takes a lot of time,” he says. Upon his return, Turner continued with the mission work he was doing and his friendship with Tania blossomed. Although he met her one week after his initial arrival, their relationship grew over the span of a few years. “It wasn’t love at first sight but as time went by we started to notice each other a bit more,” reflects Turner. When they realized their mutual affection, Tikuna tradition required Turner to ask permission from her father, a native Tikuna missionary, to court her. Then the couple required permission from the tribe’s chief to attain land to build a house. Turner also needed acceptance into the tribe. “The Tikuna had a community meeting to decide whether I’d be accepted into the tribe so they accepted,” says Turner. In 2009, the same year they were married, Turner began teaching at Escola Alternativa Cuagu Patau, which translates to ‘house of learning.’ Turner continues to work at the school a few hours each morning teaching English and Biblical studies to youth between 10 and 15. He spends the rest of his day with son Jarvis while Tania works there in the afternoon. She teaches children age four to six how to read and write in Portuguese and Tikuna. Five teachers are divided amongst 300 students. The couple also acts as youth pastors in the community: they hope to start a bible school there. “I’ve seen the ministry develop over

the years I’ve been there but there are tribes out there that are still killing each other, still cannibals,” Turner explains. “Many tribes still have a poor understanding of the gospel so it requires a lot of follow-up and discipleship in that.” The Tikuna tribe is the most advanced in the Amazon with respect to the gospel and technology although they still rely heavily off the land, he adds.

Joshua and Tania communicate with each other in Portuguese, Spanish and Tikuna and he finds it difficult to recall his English on trips home. In fact, he says he only speaks English there when he teaches. The couple is currently working on Tania’s Canadian citizenship although they plan to live where they feel most at home – in the Amazon.

AMHERSTBURG — Veterans who have passed on are not being forgotten. Royal Canadian Legion Br. 157 paid tribute to members who have died by holding a grave decoration day on Sunday. The day began with a parade from Laird Avenue to the branch on Dalhousie Street where a brief ceremony was held to remember veterans who have died. Legion member and master of

ceremonies Jeff Turner read the names of Br. 157 members that have died in the past two years while prayers were made by Rev. John Burkhart in remembrance of those who have served. Afterward, approximately 1,000 Canadian flags were placed on graves of veterans buried in adjoining Rose Hill and St. John the Baptist cemeteries. “To go out and lay a flag on a grave, that’s something special,” said Legion Br. 157 president Dennis Purdie. “It’s a very significant

day.” Purdie noted his parents were war veterans so days like Sunday served as another way to remember them. Coun. Carolyn Davies gave greetings on behalf of the town and wished everyone a memorable day. “This is a day that remembers that Canada has been kept safe and free and has protected most of the world,” said Davies.

Unity in Christ charity raises money for people of South Sudan Ron Giofu The Amherstburg Echo

“You cannot imagine the happiness of these women,” he said. “These women are looking forward to what their lives can be as people have come to their assistance.” Fr. Mauro-Iko said that meetings were formerly held underneath trees and the women were “ver y, ver y thrilled” to have the centre to go to. He added there is still a long way to go to educate women, noting there are some who are young and should be in school but are having babies instead. “There is still a lot to be done in terms of social life and education,” he said. Fundraising will continue to help the

AMHERSTBURG — The Unity in Christ (UIC) committee has continued its ongoing efforts to assist the people of South Sudan. Almost 170 people attended a fundraiser on June 9 at the Verdi Club to help raise money for a women’s centre in the new African nation. UIC’s fundraiser in 2011 helped build the women’s centre with this year’s event attempting to raise funds to outfit the building. The building is located in the village of Chukudum, the hometown of St. John the Baptist Church associate pastor Father Nichola Mauro-Iko. UIC president Dave Fox said they are looking at such items as ovens and bread-making equipment for the building as well as uniforms for school children in South Sudan. He noted some children have to travel to get a formal education. “We’re hoping we can sponsor some of the kids to go away to other communities to get a more structured education than they would normally get,” said Fox. Fox noted attendance was down somewhat this year but said the fundraiser had to compete with other activities going on in the area. Fr. Mauro-Iko was also back home in South Sudan for roughly one month which made it more difficult to motivate people to attend. Fr. Mauro-Iko said the people in his homeland were so thrilled to have received support from people in Amherstburg and Essex County that they danced throughout the night when the women’s centre opened.

people of South Sudan, Fr. Mauro-Iko added, and that UIC will continue to have jars asking for donations at local businesses. “You can make a difference with $1,” he said. “Your own dollar will make a difference somewhere. This organization will go on to assist those who are destitute.”

The Amherstburg Firefighters Association held its annual volleyball tournament Saturday at the UCCU Complex. Ed Marton plays a ball over the net during afternoon action. See story on page 17.

A total of 44 teams participated in the J. Wimpy Tiefenbach Memorial Volleyball Tournament. The tournament was presented by the Amherstburg Firefighters Association Saturday. See story on page 17.

Memory of Corey Meloche kept alive through third annual run/walk Ron Giofu The Amherstburg Echo AMHERSTBURG — Corey Meloche died in January 2010 but her memory still lives on. Over 120 people came to Toddy Jones Park on June 9 for the third annual Corey Meloche Memorial Run/Walk. Almost $2,000 was raised, and that will fund bursaries within General Amherst High School in Meloche’s memory as well as to raise funds for the school’s girls’ hockey team, a team she was a driving force in launching. Meloche was killed in a snowmobiling accident. She was 19. Darlene Meloche, Corey’s mother, said everyone was pleased with the turnout as well as the weather. She noted the event was switched to the evening so that people could stay longer as well as take part in the event after work. “We are so pleased,” she said. “Unless you go through something like this, you are always wondering if people are going to forget. It’s not happening. People keep

coming out.” Darlene credited event organizers Scott McRorie and Michelle Peters for their work and said the family was grateful for the people who attend. “We are so thankful people still want to do this in Corey’s memory,” she said. “We know she is loved and missed and we appreciate it.” McRorie said he first met Meloche when she worked at the daycare at Total Fitness. He remembers her as someone who was great with the children and a “lovely young lady. “This is my way of giving back,” he said. Moving it to an evening event proved to be a good idea, he added. “We had lots of positive feedback about changing the format of the event and moving to a more formal barbecue supper,” said McRorie. Dan Pettypiece, coach of the girls hockey team at General Amherst, said Meloche was persistent in getting the program launched. “We’re always going to be indebted to her for that,” he said.

Participants in the third annual Corey Meloche Memorial Run/Walk head southbound down Dalhousie St. after leaving Toddy Jones Park Saturday evening. The event raised roughly $2,000 for bursaries at General Amherst High School and to support the school’s girls hockey program. Pettypiece pointed out she would always come into the dressing room or be on the bench with encouraging words for her teammates. “No matter how tough it was the first year, she came into the dressing room and was always upbeat and supportive of every player on the team,” said

Pettypiece. The run/walk seems to be getting bigger every year, he added, and that he was pleased that he and the Lady Gens could help support it. “It’s just a great honour to be a part of it,” said Pettypiece.

FireďŹ ghtersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; volleyball tournament to serve up funds for schools, charities Ron Giofu The Amherstburg Echo AMHERSTBURG â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Volleyball players of all abilities hit the fields at the UCCU Complex all for a good cause. The Amherstburg Firefighters Association held the annual J. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wimpyâ&#x20AC;? Tiefenbach Memorial Volleyball Tournament but with an added twist this year. A partnership with the Miracle League of Amherstburg has been formed in an attempt to boost

both organizations. Deputy Chief Jim Ouellette, one of the tournament organizers, said the firefighters were pleased to partner with the Miracle League. Both groups use a lot of volunteers and put in a lot of effort, he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an awesome event,â&#x20AC;? said Ouellette. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all in this together.â&#x20AC;? There were 44 teams in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volleyball tournament and that was down slightly from last year. Ouellette said the tournament usually draws about 48-50 teams.

.ETWORK

Roughly 15 teams used to come in from the United States but that number has dwindled as time went on. Proceeds benefit various community causes, including Miracle League. Ouellette said the Amherstburg Firefighters Association will also be sponsoring bursaries at three local high schools including General Amherst, St. Thomas of Villanova and Western. The association also makes donations to other causes that come up throughout the course of a year, he added.

Olympic wrestler visits Ecole St.-Jean Baptiste students Jr. Cardinals drop pair of Ron Giofu games to visiting Riverside The Amherstburg Echo

W Pub elc li om c e!

AMHERSTBURG — It’s not every day when an Olympic athlete comes to your school. For Ecole St.-Jean Baptiste students, they had that unique experience when Olympic wrestler David Tremblay Jr. visited the school last Wednesday morning. Tremblay spoke with the students and held a demonstration. Tremblay will be competing in the 55-kilogram weight class Aug. 10 as part of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. Ecole St-Jean Baptiste was one of Tremblay’s stops during a brief visit to his home area and said he visited schools to help students “put a face to the Olympics” to at least cheer for Canada and for him. “As a kid, I can’t remember meeting many Olympians,” he said. “If I can amplify their experience, that’s the goal. The response is amazing. I don’t think any other athlete is getting the response I’m getting.” While back home, he spent time visiting family as well. He added he is getting tremendous support from area businesses. Tremblay has spent the last seven years training in Montreal where he attended Concordia University. It was there where he further enhanced his wrestling career with the goal of going to the Olympics. He qualified in midMarch at the Pan-American Qualifying

Special/The Echo AMHERSTBURG — The Amherstburg Cardinals junior baseball team dropped a pair of games Sunday at home. The junior Cardinals were lost via mercy rule in the first game and lost the second of the doubleheader, both to Riverside. Riverside touched up Amherstburg starter Mike Montagano for four runs in the third inning and tacked on four more in the fourth innings and three in the fifth to complete the mercy. Amherstburg was only able to record three hits in the loss. “(Riverside was) hitting the ball hard today,” said Montagano. “When they are hitting the gaps they were there is nothing you can do about that.” Montagano admits the juniors aren’t the best team but has a reputation of giving teams fits in the later round. “We didn’t do a good job of fighting back today but this team has a lot of fight in them and we usually come strong in the later innings,” he said. Amherstburg manager Tim Vigneux said the Cardinals have faced many quality pitchers lately. “It seems like we cant get all the hits at the right times,” he said. “We seem to get in the right position, we’re just missing that extra hit.” Vigneux said the players are willing to put in the effort and work hard. “Everyone keeps it fun,” said Vigneux. “We pull together even in the losses. We just keep our heads up and keep going at it.” Special/The Echo

Tournament in Kissimmee, Fla. “It’s an honour to go to the Olympics. It’s the highest competition in the world,” he said. The knowledge he had qualified for London “took a few days to hit me,” he said. He is now back to training at least 25 hours per week in preparation for the games. “It was kind of surreal,” he said of qualifying. “It doesn’t hit you all at once.” Tremblay will be picking and choosing which tournaments he will compete in to prepare for the games. He is ranked top 20 in the world in his weight class and hopes for at least a top ten finish in London. “Once you get to the top 20, it becomes anybody’s game,” he said. “I plan on doing the best I can the day of the competition.” Tremblay leaves for England July 25 and will be part of the Canadian contingent at the opening ceremonies. He will leave the city until Aug. 10, compete, and then join the athlete’s village until closing ceremonies. After the Olympics, he plans to vacation in Europe. “I’m sure I’ll make the best of it,” said Tremblay, of his Olympic experience.

AVOIDING BASEMENT FLOODING Is Basement Flooding a Common Problem? Basement flooding is unfortunately a common occurrence in many parts of Canada. But the good news is that many types of basement flooding may be avoided.

How Serious Is Basement Flooding? Basement flooding is now being recognized as a potentially serious problem. Recent research cites the following impacts: Chronically wet houses are linked to an increase in respiratory problems. Insurance rates may rise to compensate for repeated basement flooding claims, and/or the minimum deductible may be increased significantly. Property value may depreciate because the basement is prone to frequent flooding. Before appropriate measures can be taken, it is important to identify the causes of basement flooding. These range from problems originating in the individual dwelling to problems associated with the municipal sewer systems that serve entire communities.

Why Do Basements Flood? Water can enter your basement for a number of reasons. Water in your basement is most likely to occur during periods of heavy rainfall, or when snow is melting rapidly during a spring thaw. In these cases, your basement can be wet because of: a leak or crack in your homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basement walls poor lot drainage failure of the weeping tiles (foundation drains) overflowing eavestroughs or leaking/plugged downspouts a blocked connection between your home and the main sewer in the street a back-up of wastewater in the sewer system (or a combination of wastewater and rainwater from the sanitary or combined sewer system) failure of a sump pump (in some areas) used to pump weeping tile water Basements are also vulnerable to natural river flooding disasters, but these cannot be addressed by individual homeowners.

Flooding Basics Municipalities attempt to prevent flooding by maintaining the public sewer system. Homeowners with private sewage systems (septic tank and field bed) can appreciate the need for regular maintenance, but unforeseen or accidental problems can occur in any type of system. This is some municipal infrastructure terminology you should know

Practical Measures to Avoid Basement Flooding

Basement flooding problems are best diagnosed by working your way down from the eavestroughs and downspouts, to the lot and foundation drainage, and then to the plumbing system â&#x20AC;&#x201D; both inside your home and beyond its connection to the municipal sewer system. Eavestroughs and Downspouts Water pours off your eavestroughs into downspouts. If the downspouts are dumping the water right beside your foundation, it drains directly to the weeping tile and can easily overload your homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drainage. Make sure downspouts extend at least 1.8 metres (6 feet) from your basement wall. Also, be sure the water does not drain toward your neighbourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basement walls. It should drain away from your house toward the street, rear yard, or back lane. If your downspouts are connected to your homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sewer system, or weeping tile, disconnect them. Lot Grading If the land around your home slopes in toward the foundation, rainwater heads right for the weeping tile around the basement and can overload your foundation drainage system. The land around many homes settles over time, and then slopes in toward the foundation. If your lot slopes inward, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll want to fill in and grade the lot so that, for at least 1.8 metres (6 feet) out from around the foundation, the land slopes away from your house.

Floodproofing Devices Sump Pit Drainage System A sump pit drainage system includes a sump pit, a sump pump and a discharge pipe. The sump pit, set into the basement floor, collects water from the weeping tiles around your basement. The pump pushes the water outside your house through the discharge pipe Backwater Valve A backwater valve is a device that prevents sewage in an overloaded main sewer line from backing up into your basement. The valve automatically closes if sewage backs up from the main sewer. A properly installed backwater valve must be placed so that sewage backup will be stopped and not come out through other outlets in your basement, such as sinks, toilets, showers and laundry tubs. Plumbing Fixture Maintenance Have a qualified plumber inspect all floodproofing devices and plumbing fixtures (i.e. sump pumps, backwater valves, floor drains, etc.) regularly to ensure proper operation. Check the operating instructions for more detailed information and safety guidelines, or ask your plumber to explain the details of your system to you. Backup Sump Pump Severe storms are often accompanied by power blackouts. A battery powered backup sump pump may be a prudent investment. Most pumps are made to fit in beside the main sump pump and also have an audible alarm that warns the main pump has failed so that you can attend to its repair or replacement. There are also water powered backup sump pumps available that run by water flowing through the pump impeller.
