Residents can look forward to a great summer of weather, according to the experts at Environment Canada. But until summer officially arrives later this month, you can expect a roller coaster ride of temperature fluctuations. After reaching 33.3 C on May 28, topping the day’s hottest record set at 32.8 C in 1941, the city experiences a colder week and a rainy weekend. However, according to the Environment Canada outlook report for the summer released on June 1, Windsor has been in great shape compared to other areas in Ontario. David Phillips, Senior Climatologist for Environment Canada, said Windsor will carry the great weather into the summer months. Continued on page 2

Continued from page 1 “Windsor has broken daily records but I’m not too excited by that,” Phillips said. “Just because there was a broken daily record in May does not mean a summer of broken records.” Windsor, though, is carrying a streak of warmer than normal months. From June 2011 to May 2012, the average temperature has been almost three degrees warmer than normal, which sets a new alltime record. There has never been a warmer 12 months in the Windsor area. “There is a trend but eventually Windsor will see a colder month. I just don’t think it’ll happen for the next few months,” Phillips said. From June to August, Windsor-Essex, Chatham-Kent and Sarnia-Lambton will continue to see warmer than normal conditions. However, despite the warmer than normal temperatures so far this year, Windsor has had adequate precipitation, unlike other areas in Ontario. Southwestern Ontario has been dryer than normal. According to Phillips, the rain Windsor received during spring may be the saviour if it turns out to be dryer than normal summer. Last year Windsor experienced one of the wettest springs in history. From March to May this year, Windsor had 210 millimetres of rain, though in 2011 there was 452 millimetres. There was too much rain last year for farmers and their crops. From March to May, it is normal for Windsor to see 241 millimetres of precipitation. Recording 210 millimetres this year, Windsor is at 87 per cent for what it would normally get. However, other areas in Ontario are

much lower, averaging about 40 per cent. “Windsor’s getting the rain when they need it,” Phillips said. “It was almost a bonus in conditions, especially May. This has not been the case elsewhere in Ontario. I bet there are a lot of envious farmers outside Windsor-Essex County thinking you have horded all the rain.” According to Phillips, Windsor’s growing degree days have been fantastic. Windsor-Essex County has seen 54 per cent more heat-units for crops than normal. “The fields are already in, water in the area is adequate, and the growing degrees days are much higher. Many areas in Southern Ontario has been talking about the drought, but Windsor has been lucky,” Phillips said. Though that still doesn’t change the opinion for Windsorites. Living in a city known for the heat, humidity and haze, Windsor is carrying a long stretch of above average temperatures. The average temperature in May was 18 C, the normal was 14.9 C. There were also four days where the temperature was over 30 C. The month of March broke the highest main temperature by two degrees, from 7.6 to 9.6. According to Environment Canada, Windsor broke seven daily high-temperatures in March, five of the days were in a row from March 18-22. In June, the Windsor area will see temperatures from normal to a little warmer than normal, according to Phillips. He doesn’t believe this summer will be as hot as last year. The hottest recorded day in 2011 was 37.6 C set on July 21. Windsor’s

all-time record was on June 25, 1988, when the mercury went up to 40.2 C. There is always a concern with smog with warmer temperatures. According to Phillips, there has already been as many smog advisories this year than there was all of last year – or very close to it. Despite a mild winter, smog advisories, and record breaking days and months, Phillips forecasts a warmer summer – but not an overly hot as 2011. “Last year was one of the warmer summers Windsor has had in a long time,” Phillips said. “Last year the Windsor area had 32 days where the temperature got above 30 degrees. Last year was very warm but very wet. This year we see it as warmer but possibly not as excruciating warm as Windsor seen last year.” Environment Canada would like people in Windsor to know there are always health concerns and UV rays that comes with warmer weather. They would like people to take precautions and be aware. As well, Phillips would like people to watch out for severe weather. That is something almost impossible to forecast. Based on climate and yearly statistics, Windsor does get its fair share of severe weather, which follows warmer weather as well. “People should recognize that and take precautions if strong weather does approach the area,” Phillips said. “There is always warnings signs for severe weather, with strong winds, change of colour in the sky and public forecasts.” joel.boyce@sunmedia.ca

The best of the best A Windsor teacher is in the top 15 for a national teaching award. Eric Clement Windsor This Week Melissa Brown steps into a grade seven class and 30 students unanimously greet her in near perfect French. Just one year shy of their grade eight graduation, the children have spent around 300 classroom hours or – 50 minutes per day – learning Canada’s second official language. But already, they sound well versed. The children begin class by playing a game called phrase mystère (mystery sentence) where students give names of places, people and things in French. They then try to guess the sentence Brown has come up with using those words to win prizes. This is just one teaching technique in an arsenal of activities that has earned Brown the respect of her peers. So much so that they recently nominated her for Canadian Family magazine’s annual Great Teacher Award. The grade four to eight core French teacher is now one of 13 finalists for the award that comes with a cash prize for the top-three candidates. “A t f i r s t , I w a s s l i g h t l y embarrassed. I don’t love the public attention, I’ll be honest,” Brown said. “But when I discovered we could w in $2,500 for the school, that became my focus.” “This is for the school, it’s not about Mmle Brown anymore,” she said. L a t e r, t h e c l a s s p l a y s another game while wearing clothespins. As long as the students speak French, the pin remains clipped to their shirts. At the end of class, every student still wearing their clip, wins candy. “A lot of them left thinking all they did today was play a game with me and a game with their group and didn’t realize that they spoke French for 50 minutes,” Brown said. “If you had told them in September that I was going to expect them to speak French

ERIC CLEMENT Windsor This Week Talbot Trail Public School teacher Melissa Brown playing a game with her grade 7 French class on May 30. for 50 minutes without speaking any English, they would have said they couldn’t do it.” And that’s not an easy task, principal Mark Rinaldi Ross said. “Second languages aren’t a l w ay s p o p u l a r i n c e r t a i n buildings.” “She really demonstrates the value of knowing French later on.” For Rinaldi Ross, this dedication to the school has made

Brown invaluable, he said. “In elementary school, you usually don’t have a department head. But she really is the French head here at Talbot Trail and the other two teachers are happy that they work with the Mel Brown.” “I’ve taught in Huron County and I’ve been here. I’ve never come across a better French teacher.” eric.clement@sunmedia.ca

Cow-pie politics I

want to believe the province will be listening to the local feedback on the subject of potential school board amalgamation. But if the process is any indication, we have more than a little reason to be concerned. The issue arose as a result of the provincial government’s spring budget which pledged millions of dollars in what were termed “system savings” in education; reminiscent of embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford who promised he could find millions of tax dollars being wasted at city hall. Ford’s still looking, by the way. Ontario Education Minister Laurel Broten said her government will examine potential school board amalgamations as part of its that process. There’s nothing wrong with asking local officials to study ways to save money; that should be part of their job. However, when the discussion is tilted to the mindset that bigger is automatically better, someone needs to put the brakes on. Bigger is, well, bigger, and that’s about it. Administrative costs don’t decrease appreciably; bigger empires lead to bigger salaries; and where duplicate positions are cut, those remaining get a bigger paycheque to compensate for more responsibility. One need look no further than provincial spending boondoggles such as the Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs) which have added a new layer of bureaucracy and cost taxpayers millions. What’s efficient often depends whether you’re getting the money or having to shell it out. Since it has guaranteed savings, it appears that the province isn’t interested in looking for input, but has already earmarked what it wants cut and is only feigning consultation. That theory gains credibility when you look at the timing involved. The province plans to have its restructuring plans in place early next year, roughly seven months away. In terms of the way governments usually operate, that’s less than a heartbeat. I would be amazed if somewhere in the bowels of Queen’s Park there isn’t a document with most of the blanks already filled in on this one. It’s a government version of cowpie bingo. Someone’s going to step in it sooner rather than later and if it’s us, we can’t do a bloody thing about it. Jim Blake

Oops! She did it again Windsor’s own Dr. Barbara Heartwell has been making national headlines after performing a mastectomy on someone who turned out to be cancer-free. But that wasn’t the biggest twist in the story. As it turns out, Heartwell had made that exact same mistake before: in 2001, Janice Laporte had her breast removed by Dr. Heartwell. A week after the surgery, she found out that she didn’t have cancer. But don’t worry, guys — Heartwell got slapped with a strongly-worded “caution” (read: warning) over the incident — er, incidents. Plural. It may be tempting to write Dr. Heartwell’s off as an isolated case, but she’s not the only doctor making grievous mistakes. Or, you know, the exact same mistake a couple times in a row. Almost everyone has a horror story about a doctor who misdiagnosed their sister, their cousin, or their friend’s nephew’s neighbour. Maybe not to the same degree as Dr. Heartwell did, but still--a misdiagnosis can cause some serious (and sometimes deadly) consequences. And sadly, it seems to be a pretty common experience. Mistakes happen, of course. Just watch an episode of Grey’s Anatomy. Doctors make mistakes, sometimes through no fault of their own. But as we’ve also learned from Grey’s

Liz Bernier Anatomy, there are good doctors and there are bad doctors. And in Ontario, we’re so desperate for any doctors at all that there’s no longer much of a distinction made between the good ones and the bad ones. Even if you know that a doctor’s reputation is a little sketchy, even if you’ve heard four different stories of them dismissing that creepy lump as “nothing to worry about” instead of screening for cancer — what can you do when there are no other doctors available? There are so many people without a family doctor that many will just take what they can get. Bad doctors don’t really lose business if they practice bad medicine. It’s not like other jobs where there are plenty of eager wannabes waiting in the wings to take their place if they mess up. There are a limited number of doctors and a seemingly endless list of patients. So even if a doctor makes a bad call or a sloppy, rushed diagnosis, they’re very unlikely to see their patient list dwindle. Continued on page 5

Cancer Centre employee honoured A registration clerk has received a provincial award for her hard work

police briefs Police seek robbery suspect

Windsor Police are searching for a suspect involved in two robberies last week on the city’s east side. On Thursday, May 31 at around 5:20 p.m., police responded to a call at the TD Canada Trust location on Ottawa Street. Police interviewed witnesses who said that a male suspect had approached a bank teller with a written note. The note stated that the suspect had a gun and demanded cash. The teller gave the suspect an amount of cash, after which he escaped on a bicycle. On Friday, June 1 at about 2 a.m., police responded to a call at an Esso gas station on Wyandotte Street. Officers interviewed a store clerk who said that a male suspect had approached him, advised that he had a gun, and demanded all the money from the cash register. The clerk handed over the cash. The suspect then escaped on a bicycle. Police have identified the suspect as Joseph David Reid, 27. Police are asking that anyone with information about Reid’s

whereabouts contact the Windsor Police Services Investigative Branch at 519-255-6700 ext. 4830 or call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 519-258-8477.

Woman’s death ruled a drowning

Police have released the results of their preliminary investigation into the death of Patricia Morencie. At this point in the investigation, they have found that there is no indication of foul play. Ms. Morencie’s body was found in the Detroit River on Sunday, May 20. An autopsy was performed but results are not being released publicly. There was evidence that the cause of death was drowning. All injuries that Ms. Morencie sustained were consistent with her body being in the water at that location. Investigators are still looking for information about Ms. Morencie’s whereabouts on the evening of Saturday, May 19 and the morning of Sunday, May 20. Anyone with any information is urged to contact the Windsor Police Services Investigative Branch at 519-255-6700 ext. 4830.

A visit to the Windsor Regional Cancer Centre is not meant to be a pleasant experience, but one employee has been making it a little less scary for patients. Pam Lalonde was recognized in a ceremony at the Cancer Centre last week for delivering compassionate care to the centre’s many visitors. Lalonde was one of six recipients of the Cancer Care Ontario Human Touch Award celebrated in Toronto last month. “It’s an honour,” Lalonde said. “It’s a privilege and I think a lot of the nurses and the doctors and (therapists)...should have come before me.”

She genuinely makes our patients feel special because she believes they are special.” Outpatient clinics manager Colleen Reaume “To me, Windsor has the best Cancer program in Ontario,” she said. Several people spoke about Lalonde’s accomplishments in the centre’s lobby where a banner bearing her picture will be hung. Lalonde has worked just metres away as a registration clerk for a last 5 years - and another 8 in other hospital departments. “She genuinely makes our patients feel special because she believes they are special,” outpatient clinics manager Colleen Reaume told an audience at the hospital. “This is not a a job for Pam, it

is a calling.” This statement was shared by many of the patients that have encountered Lalonde throughout their treatment. “She was fantastic. She’d have your paperwork ready and move you right on down to where you had to go. And they’d always say hello and goodbye,” cancer survivor Art Shultz said. “I had excellent care and service here.” “The people here are really human. She’s getting that award, but I think just about everybody here should be getting that award.” Lalonde said she it’s some-

thing that she’s always been well suited for. “I love people,” Lalonde said. “I just read the body language. I don’t know, I connect with people. That’s what my job is.” But it’s not always an easy one, she said. “I go home and cry on a lot of days.” “I take this job home. People touch your heart and you can’t help but feel. Every single one of us feels for the patients and their journey here. It’s a difficult journey for some.” Despite being praised and honoured by her superiors, patients and other staff, Lalonde said it won’t change her work ethic. “I’m the same. I’m not really into all this hype. I’m just a quiet person and my whole world is in around that desk.” eric.clement@sunmedia.ca

Caught red handed Police Safety Week reported hundreds of driving infraction Eric Clement Windsor This Week With icy driving conditions behind us, police said holiday weekends will be one of the main safety concerns on the road throughout the summer. The Windsor Police Service launched their first Road Safety Week last month to coincide with the May long-weekend. The campaign, which ran from May 14 to May 21, served

a s t h e f i r s t ro a d s a f e t y campaign leading up to the summer. “It’s really all about making people aware, before summertime, of the traffic safety issues,” said staff sgt. Mike Kelly. The WPS recorded 122 speeding violations, 10 license suspensions for issues related to alcohol, 14 distracted driving offences and four seat belt charges. Police also charged a 62-year-old man with stunt driving after he was caught travelling164 kilometres per hour in an 80 kilometre per hour zone. “That’s faster than the 401, but it is what it is and now he has to go to court,” said Kelly.

Despite the numerous infractions, the number of offences are similar with those from the May 2011 enforcement week. The s a f e t y c a m p a i g n s h av e been in place for over a decade and serve as a reminder to drivers to pay attention when summer events and nice weather lead to increased infractions, said Kelly. “We just hope that people are mindful that kids will be getting out of school in a month or so and that w e’ re h o p i n g e v e r y o n e pays attention to what’s going on in the city and keeps people safe.” eric.clement@sunmedia.ca

A look at the stats by the numbers: • 10 Driving suspensions issued related to alcohol. • 14 Distracted Driving charges (cell phone/hand held device) • 4 Seat Belt charges • 2 Driving while under suspension charges • 36 Other Provincial Traffic charges (no driver’s licence, expired validation tags etc.) • 17 Roadside tests administered. • 12 Warnings issued Aggressive Driving: • Speeding - 122 charges • Stunt Driving - 1 charge (164km/hr in an 80 km/hr zone) • Red light violations - 3 • Stop Sign violations - 3

Medical mistakes a recurrent theme Continued from page 4 There are sanctions, of course, but there are plenty of instances where they just aren’t enough. (Read: “Dr. Heartwell,” “unnecessary mastectomy,” and “strongly

worded warning.”) Recent census data paints an even bleaker picture, showing that the proportion of seniors in the Canadian population is on the rise — which means, of course, that

so is the proportion of sick people. An ageing population means that doctors will be even more in demand, paving the way for the bad ones to stay in business.

Regardless of how they treat their patients. Liz Bernier is a multimedia journalist at Windsor This Week. Contact her at liz.bernier@sunmedia.ca

Windsor construction workers strike Complaint filed with Ministry of Labour Liz Bernier Windsor This Week Construction work around the city came to a screeching halt last week as 300 heavy equipment operators walked the picket lines. The Windsor-Essex Parkway project is the largest construction project that has shut down because of the strike, but many other projects are being affected. The strike began Saturday after the union could not reach an agreement with the Heavy Construction Association of Windsor about overtime hours. Currently, a worker receives overtime pay if they exceed 50 hours of work in a week. The Construction Association wants to bump that number up to 55 hours, meaning workers would

have to work five extra hours without overtime pay. The International Union of Operating Engineers Local 793 is the union representing the equipment operators. They had been in contract talks with the Construction Association when negotiations broke down. Local 793 Business Manager Mike Gallagher said that a 55-hour work week without overtime violates the Employment Standards Act. “Our members work hard and are proud of the quality of their workmanship, as will be evident when the Windsor-Essex Parkway project is completed,” he said. “They would like to at least be paid in accordance with the provincial standards, which is what the expired collective agreement requires.” The union has filed “bargaining in bad faith” charges against the Construction Association with the Ministry of Labour. The union represents operators who work primarily with

Carrousel of the Nations kicks off Ashley MacIsaac, Kenny G to perform Liz Bernier Windsor This Week If you’re looking for international culture this month, you won’t have to look very far. The annual Carrousel of Nations festival — the region’s only world festival — will be going on at the Windsor riverfront this weekend. Alexander Zonjic, Artistic Director of the festival, will be performing with his band on the Sunday evening. He gave a brief preview of what to expect at the Carrousel this year when he and his band performed at the Carrousel Launch Party last week at Wiser’s Reception Centre. Zonjic has been involved with the festival before, and he says its one of his favourites in the city. “I love this event,” he said. “I do a lot of festivals in the area and obviously I perform, and there’s something about an event that is affiliated with the multicultural council.” The festival is presented by the Multicultural Council of Windsor and Essex County. It will take place the weekend of June 8-10, beginning with the opening ceremonies on Friday night. Admission is just $5 per day, and you don’t have to buy tickets in advance. “It’s the best value you could possibly get,” Zonjic said. The festival will feature food and entertainment from a wide variety of cultures,

I’m doing similar this year to what I did the first year — a very traditional show.” Ashley MacIsaac and there will be some new twists this year, Zonjic said. “(It’s) three days of world music, incredible food, dance, celebrity chefs this year, which is kind of a new component, and the music is really, really diverse.” The celebrity chefs will include David Rocco on Saturday and Christine Cushing

on Sunday. The musical acts range from jazz to gospel to folk, and a couple of highprofile performers appear on the weekend lineup, including Kenny G and Ashley MacIsaac. MacIsaac, a Juno awardwinning fiddler, made a special appearance at the launch party, performing a song he wrote about looking out over the river at Detroit. Originally from the east coast, MacIsaac has lived in Windsor for almost four years now. This is his third year performing in the Carrousel festival. “I’m doing similar this year to what I did the first year — a very traditional show,” he said. MacIsaac said that he really enjoys being part of the festival, and it’s a great way to experience the local

cians and great studios.” MacIsaac’s sister Lisa will also be performing at Carrousel with her folk duo Madison Violet. If one weekend isn’t quite enough culture for you, the Carrousel festival will continue as Carrousel around the City takes place over the next two weekends in June. “It’s not just a carrousel by the river, it’s also carrousel around the city, because for the following two weekends after the kickoff, (all) the villages start to

strike up,” Zonjic said. Carrousel around the City will take place on the weekends of June 15-17 and June 22-24. More information is available at www.carrouselofnations.ca. liz.bernier@sunmedia.ca

The Art Gallery of Windsor will offer a free concert on father’s day Father’s Day treat Eric Clement Windsor This Week It may not be a set of power tools, but the Art Gallery of Windsor is offering the city’s dads a gift for Father’s Day.

The AGW will offer free admission on Sunday, June 17 and a performance by The Attacca Quartet. The special Father’s Day event will consist of an interactive performance in which the audience interacts and participates in the band’s performance. “We wanted to do some-

thing a little more family friendly this year,” said former AGW development director Linda Andrejicka. “They’ll play different notes and different combinations and then the idea is to build a story around it with the participants.” The performance is being offered as part of Michigan’s

Great Lakes Chamber Music Festival and is being sponsored by The Morris and Beverly Baker Foundation. “This is our second year of doing that with them,” said Andrejicka. “We’ve been very fortunate that that foundation has sponsored this concert. The quartet consists of vio-

linists Amy Schroeder and Keiko Tokunaga, violist Luke Fleming and cellist Andrew Yee. The group met at The Juilliard School in New York City and have gained acclaim after playing at venues like Carnegie Hall. “We’re always excited to have other artist and other musicians come and join

us here in Windsor,” said Andrejicka. “These musicians have achieved some world stage success.” Where to see them: Art Gallery of Windsor When they play: Sunday June 17th, 2012 at 1 p.m. Cost: Free eric.clement@sunmedia.ca

Originally formed in Ottawa, the indie-rockers consist of singer and guitarist Jacquie Neville, brother and bassist Steve Neville and drummer Liam Jaeger. The trio now regularly tours Canada and the United States and recently returned from shows in Chicago and New York City. This will be fourth time The Balconies have played in Windsor. “ Wi n d s o r ’s a l w ay s b e e n good to us so we’re glad to be coming back,” said Jaeger. But fans shouldn’t expect the same old show that they saw last time. The band released their new EP, Kill Count, in 2011, which features a more assertive sound. “Last time we w e re t h e re w a s over a year ago so we have a lot o f n e w t u n e s .” said Jaeger. “If anybody has seen us in Windsor before and wants to come see us, this is going to be a lot louder.” Fa r r u g i a s a i d he knows first hand that the band can put on a show and is e x c i t e d t o hav e them play at his venue. “I saw them before in Toronto and they put on a really good show.” “It’s going to be Friends a rocker.” Where to see them: The Dugout Sports Lounge, 300 VINYL Ouellette Avenue (Corner of OuelFLOORING lette and University Avenues) Time: Saturday June 9th at 9 p.m. Cost: Free

Farrugia said he offers these free shows to give bands that may be less known, a chance to grow and offer an alternative to some of the pop music frequently played on the radio. “ I’ m a hu g e f a n mys e l f,” he said. “I’m a fan not only of the local scene but also the national and international indie scene and I think there’s a lot of good music out there.” The Balconies are a change o f p a c e , h o w e v e r, a s t h e Toronto-based ro ck group has been steadily gaining popularity over several years.

Raising money for Brain Tumour Foundation Continued from page 11 Questions rise. Why does the cancer come? Why does it spread? Why does it go there? Why do brain tumours occur? “My husband and I joined a support group, and we got to know them really well,” Martin said. “They talked about the Spring Sprint. We’ve taken part in the Spring Sprint in London and our facilitators there said it would be great have one here. So my husband and I looked at each other and said, ‘Let’s do it.’” Martin stresses this event is not just for survivors or people diagnosed – it’s for everyone. If you’re a family member or you lost somebody, don’t just attend the Spring Sprint, come to the support group to tell your story or hear other people. “We’re still trying to create that awareness. If someone is hit with this illness we want them to know they have a place to turn to,” Martin said. Someone outside the illness witnessed the toll it took on a family. Windsor decathlete Jamie Adjetey-Nelson has been very close to his coach for many years. When 7-year-old Mckenna was diagnosed with a brain tumour a few years ago, he took action. “ I feel like I’m part of that family,” Adjetey-Nelson said. “I can lend a help-

ing hand or be a part of something like this, it helps me as a person and to just learn a little bit more in the community.” He was the first person to babysit Mckenna. Adjetey-Nelson said events like this make the community more aware of what’s happening around them. “It’s great for the city of Windsor and it’s great for Canada to have things like this happen,” he said. The Spring Sprint is not just involved around a one km walk or fun-run. Forget the morning coffee – Tim Hortons will be donating coffee, breakfast pastries and prizes for the event. Jangles the clown will be there for the kids. There will be food, slushies, button making and a beading station. A mas-

sage therapist will the present. And to top it off, people can enjoy music for Cluster Folk. “I’ve met so many good people since this has started,” Martin said. “We have some great and amazing people that have to go through this crappy situation, and yet we come together and it’s like we have been friends for life.” There are many other ways to donate.

Bringing or sending food, clothes, toiletries, and supplies is just one simple way to make a difference for people who are living in dire poverty and just don’t have very many options.

Diane Simon was having a pretty tough day. She’d been volunteering in Haiti, bringing food and supplies to the local villagers and helping them learn about proper hygiene, and the weight of the suffering and poverty she was seeing was starting to wear on her. She was sitting alone on the beach when a ten-year-old Haitian boy came up to her. “I was sitting in the water, crying — just crying,� she said. “He came and he sat down by me, and then got up and went away. Ten minutes later, he came back and he’s got a necklace that he’s made out of beads. He put it on my head, and he couldn’t speak English any more than I can speak French Creole, but he said ‘they’ll be ok.’� The boy’s name was Maxeau, and Simon never forgot him. “He just stole my heart,� she said. Simon’s first volunteer trip to Haiti was in 1998 — before the earthquake happened. But when the earthquake struck, she felt compelled to go back — this time bringing her sister, Joanne Leveille. The devastating conditions were a surprise to Leveille, but not to Simon. “Yes, the earthquake was devastating, but there was so much that was needed already,� she said. In a way, she said, the earthquake just drew the world’s attention to a country that had already been suffering. She recalls a city right near Port au Prince that she visited on her first trip. “It was like a city built on garbage,� she said. “And at nighttime, you would go down there, and there would be methane fires popping up all over the place, where people were living.� Leveille was shocked by the circumstances the people there were living in every day. The village they visited had a stream running through it, she said, and that was just about the only resource they had. “This stream, to me, represents everything that the village

is,� she said. “Animals go in it, they wash their clothes in it, they wash their bodies in this stream, and they carry their water out of this same dirty stream. There is no such thing as outhouses or plumbing at all.� Unlike the Dominican Republic, Haiti does not have a significant tourism industry to bring in income or jobs for the people there. “In Haiti, there’s either rich or there’s poor,� Leveille said. “There’s no middle class.� “Haiti took my breath away f o r t h e f a c t t hat i t w a s s o

Haiti took my breath away for the fact that it was so close to all of us. We’re talking four hours (away). It’s here. It’s not like it’s way across the world, it’s here. So how did this happen?�

annual walk, this was the first year it officially became an international event. Pam, whose son Troy, 35, is a medic with the U.S. Army’s Charlie Company, was ecstatic when she learned some of her son’s superiors would participate in this year’s event. Sunday morning, soldiers lined up for breakfast at Colasanti’s before an international exchange of coins and certificates of appreciation between U.S. and Canadian soldiers, the OPP and Joe Colasanti. Squire couldn’t stop grinning. “I’m just so proud,” she said of her efforts in bringing the troops together. “Hopefully, it will become an annual event.” Squire said her campaign to rally support for the troops began when her son was deployed to Iraq in 2008. It began as the ‘Walk to Iraq and Back’. And for Pam, it wasn’t about supporting the war — it was about remembering the sons and daughters who were deployed. Pam said she keeps in close contact with many soldiers — and she said their greatest wish is to ‘not be forgotten’. So this Cottam mom has made it her mission to keep the support for the troops in the forefront — especially after her son was deployed in 2008. Troy was seriously injured when an improvised explosive device exploded under his vehicle, He has since undergone reconstructive back surgery and pledged to begin the walk with his fellow comrades and civilian supporters. For Troy, his mother’s efforts have been nothing short of amazing. “It’s unbelievable,’ he said, “it feels great that she has shown so much interest and support.” This year’s walk held even deeper meaning, with his superiors making the seven-hour trip from Fort Knox, Kentucky to Cottam. “For them to come up on their own free time,” said Troy, “it’s amazing.” Pam said she was thrilled with the participation of the U.S. and Canadian soldiers and said she was looking forward to having them all back to her house for a barbecue.

Hydro One unveils outage app

Liz Bernier Windsor This Week For everyone who’s ever sat in the dark, waiting for a power outage to end: good news. A new mobile app might make that uncertainty a thing of the past. The app keeps hydro customers updated on planned and unplanned outages, telling them what the status is and when they can expect their power to come back on. The mobile app launched on Tuesday, May 22. It is completely free and can be downloaded to any smartphone or tablet device.

He said to me, ‘we do not teach our kids to dream.’” “Here, we teach our kids to dream and go for it, go for broke,” she said. “But (they) do not teach their kids to dream, because most of them have nowhere to go.” But Simon wanted to change that — at least for one child. She had never been able to forget Maxeau, the little boy from the beach. So when she went back after the earthquake, she wanted to see him again. She didn’t have to wait long — h e w a s w a i ting at the airport for her. Simon had kept in touch with him ever since her first trip to Haiti. She wanted to do something to help him, so she gave him the best gift she could think of — she put him through school. “ We p a i d f o r his high school education. Going through high school is a big thing (for him),” she said with a smile. “My only sadness is I know I’ll never see him again.”

They were simply tired of being backburnered when it came to updates,” Paterson said. “I’m here to help my clients, it’s that simple. If someone wants to update their site, I don’t charge them extra unless I have to. If someone writes or calls me, you can bet, I do my best to respond right away.” He doesn’t just design websites, he builds software, hosts websites, and also offers email marketing, search engine optimization, graphic design and marketing consultation. Paterson can’t take credit for it all. He has a fantastic team of supporting players that stretches far beyond the Windsor borders. He

also also contracts workers outside the area – one being an individual in India who has worked with him since the beginning. Paterson recalls spending Saturday nights in his early 20s at his desk drinking Tropicana orange juice and designing websites, while some of his friends would be out on the town. He refers to himself as a geek – and wouldn’t change a thing. “Where do I see myself in 10 years? Hopefully retired on a beach.” Paterson said jokingly. “I’m not a millionaire yet. Hopefully one day.” For more information on Primary Target Media, check out the website at www.primarytargetmedia. com.

Picking up the pieces Library board drafts new policies in wake of Maghnieh scandal Liz Bernier Windsor This Week It was the first time the library board had met since the great credit card scandal of 2012, and even though he was absent, former chair Al Maghnieh still dominated much of the conversation. The credit card scandal was a hot topic of discussion, but the debate had shifted away from how to deal with those involved. Now, the problem the board is facing is how to prevent such a scandal from happening again. Councillor Hilary Payne, who served on the previous library board with Al Maghnieh, thinks he has found the solution. He introduced four new policies that he hopes will prevent any future spending abuses. “We’re very mindful of the fact that the original policies of the board didn’t do the job,” he said. “So rather than try to tweak them around, we thought we would work closely with the city policies. The city has never had a credit card issue like we’ve had here.” “Rather than trying to fix something that is defective, we’re coming up with new policies.” The board tabled the four new policies for consideration, which they will discuss further at the next meeting. But the policies were not the only new introductions to the library board. Two new board m e m b e r s, Pe t e r F r i s e a n d Howard Pawley, attended the

LIZ BERNIER Windsor This Week Peter Frise, one of the two new board members, speaks to media after the library board meeting. Frise declined to comment on the fallout from the credit card scandal. meeting. Councillor Jo-Anne Gignac, the board’s new chair and Maghnieh’s replacement, was there as well. Payne said that he is confident that the new board members will help the library move forward after the scandal. “We’ve got excellent people on the board now, and I think we can now finally dig ourselves out of this morass that we’ve found ourselves in and move ahead,” he said. However, there is still speculation whether the board’s efforts to “move ahead” will include CEO Barry Holmes. Holmes was absent from the board meeting, as he has been away on sick leave for several weeks now. When asked if Holmes would remain CEO of the library board, Payne declined to comment. “I can’t make any comment

*27 '(%7"

except that he’s on sick leave and he’s back on June 5,” he said. Peter Frise, one of the two new board members, also declined to comment on the fallout from the scandal. “I really don’t want to comment on what went before,” he said. “I want to move forward and make sure that Windsor’s library system is effective and efficient and does a great job for the people of Windsor.” And in terms of moving forward, Frise thinks that making new policies is not as important as making sure that everyone understands what the policies are and agrees to follow them. “It’s not what the policies were, it’s the fact that they weren’t followed,” he said. “So in my view, the key thing is that not another (thing) gets done around here until everybody involved has signed off on those policies.” When asked why he wanted to join the board—being that he’s a pretty busy guy—Frise said it was because libraries are a key element to the quality of any city. “Libraries are really important in the life of a city,” he said. “And I think it’s critical that the library of every municipality be efficient and well-run and offer great programs for its citizens so that it can add to their lives and help them move forward and learn new things.” And hopefully those are the things that the board will be able to focus on, instead of being mired in (credit card) scandals. “When I said I would like to be on the library board, I figured it would be rather routine,” Payne said. “Well, I couldn’t have been more wrong.” liz.bernier@sunmedia.ca

Tecumseh Warriors are number one Warriors bring home the Michigan Classic trophies Joel Boyce Windsor This Week The Tecumseh Warriors Under 16 Girls team won the Under 17 Division at the Michigan Soccer Classic Memorial Day Tournament in Rochester Hills during the May 25-27 weekend. The Windsor and District Soccer League team joined the tournament for a challenge and experience, but took the top spot in its first time in the tournament. “What sets them differently than other teams I’ve coached is their togetherness and attitude,” said head coach Kevin Mulvey. “Their willingness to cooperate is great. I’ve never had to use my ‘loud voice.’” The Warriors defeated the U-17 Burlington (Ontario) Bay Hawks 2-1 in the final game, after posting two wins and a tie in group play. That was the second time they faced the Bay Hawks in the

JOEL BOYCE Windsor This Week The Tecumseh Warriors Under 16 Girls team hold their Michigan Classic trophies and show they are number one winning the Classic Memorial Day Tournament in Rochester Hills during the May 25-27 weekend. tournament, beating them 2-1 before as well. According to forward Cassie Chretien, they knew what they were going to see and prepared for the second time around. “It was really great win-

ning because it was a good start to the season,” Chretien said. “We got to know how our team plays and it went really good. We played a good passing game.” Chretien led the Warriors

with four goals in the tournament, including both tallies in the final game. Terryn Walker, Stefanie Ferlaino and Alana Lansue also recorded goals. Prairie Bortolin, the goalie for theWar-

riors, recorded one shutout in the tournament and made numerous saves in an exciting final. “ There was a couple times the other team almost scored in the last few min-

utes,” said Stefanie Ferlaino, an outside midfielder for Tecumseh. “She made some amazing saves to keep us ahead.” The Warriors have a closeknit group of girls who have grown and learned together. There are only two new players on the team. According Chretien, there are still things to learn. “We probably could still work on our passing game and have quicker touches,” she said. The Warriors will competing in the Robbie International Soccer Tournament in Scarborough Canada Day weekend. Also in July, the team will also be attending the Continental Cup in Ohio. “It felt awesome (winning) because we worked really hard,” Bortolin said. “When we practiced during the winter time it definitely paid off – it was a great start for the season.” You can follow the Tecumseh Warriors on the Windsor and District Soccer League’s website at www.wadsl.org and looking for the U-18 girls. joel.boyce@sunmedia.ca

Lajeunesse soccer team going to OFSAA Championships Joel Boyce Windsor This Week E.J. Lajeunesse Secondary School will be going to the OFSAA Championships after winning 2-1 against North Lambton Secondary School Wednesday, May 30. This is the farthest Lajeunesse has gone in winning the SWOSSA ‘A’ Senior Boys Soccer Championship. “We played like we want t o w i n t h e g a m e ,” s a i d M o u s t a p h a Fa w a z , t h e goalie for Lajeunesse. “With our coach and fans behind us and cheering us on, we couldn’t let them down.” Lajeunesse scored early in the game. After North

Lambton tied it up halfway through, the action went back and forth, from end to end all the way to overtime. After a thrilling overtime solved nothing, the game winner was decided by a shootout. North Lambton came out short with two shoot-out penalty shots goals, as Lajeunesse scored three from Moustapha Fawaz, Jerr y Kabula and Joel Kabula to take the win. “ I’ m l o o k i n g f o r w a rd t o O F S A A n ow ,” Faw a z said. “We had a good season. We’re going to make the best out of it. We’re all going to practice all week long and try to get the OFSAA gold.” North Lambton will still

have a chance to make the OFSAA Championships but will have to play a suddendeath game to get in. “We had a pretty tough opponent,” Fawaz said. “ They were a ver y good team overall. They challenged us pretty well and I wish them the best of luck.” The OFSAA Championships which be played at Academie Ste.

Joel Boyce Windsor This Week Members of the LaSalle Rowing Club carry a four-person rowing shell outside the boathouse off of Laurier Drive in LaSalle on Saturday, June 2. Vice-president Patti Jones (left), president Matt Deslippe (right) and secretary Peter Redfern (2nd from right) would like people to try out their Learn to Row sessions starting June 9.

AD{65396865}

The LaSalle Rowing Club held another open house Saturday, June 2 to show off its boathouse and tell the community about its Learn to Row program. Don’t let the name fool you – it’s not just for LaSalle. The club is open to the entire Windsor-Essex area, and even had a member take the trip down from Chatham to attend. The other closest rowing club is in London. “We row six days a week, so there is definitely opportunity for them to come out and row and meet great people,” said Matt Deslippe, the LaSalle Rowing Club’s president. “Membership is very friendly and very welcoming – we all have a great time.” The Learn to Row courses include a class manual, use of rowing equipment, and personal instruction from a member. The first session involves on-land instructions, including the use of Concept 2 ergo-meters, a rowing machine that helps novices work on their timing. The majority of sessions are spent on the water, depending on the weather conditions. Rowers will learn to row in four or eight person shells. The best part is, no experience is necessary to enroll. The program starts on June 9 and runs for three weeks. They have classes Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. As well, rowers will pick two nights classes from Monday to Thursday, 6 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. “Learn to Row sessions are a four-day course with a fee of $120,” Deslippe said. “We show you how to balance the boat, get in the boat and carry the boat. We show you how to do the sport.” Rowing club has been around for

more than 40 years. Just recently they had their boathouse built, with the help of the town of LaSalle. According to the club, it was a challenge trying to implement rowing with the schools in the Windsor-Essex area because of insurance and liabilities. The club is a hidden gem in LaSalle – being on the water and rowing along the Fighting Island on the Detroit River. “People don’t know we’re here, that’s the problem,” Deslippe said. “They see this building but they don’t know what it is. We get beautiful days out here when the water is just like glass. In the fall when all the trees are changing – it’s great.” Rowing is a water sport that uses all the major muscle groups to propel a boat forward. The boats are the fastest muscle powered crafts on the water, and are often confused with canoes, which only utilizes the upper-body to move the boat. Rowers face backwards when they row because they use long oars to lever the boat using most of the power provided by the leg drive. “It’s another way to stay active and enjoy the water,”said Peter Redfern, the secretary for the LaSalle Rowing Club. Besides great exercise, members at the club said it’s a lifelong sport that can be performed and enjoyed by all ages. “We’re always looking for more members,”Redfern said. “Spend 20 minutes on the machine and then you’ll hit the water – you’ll love it.” For information about Learn to Row registration or the LaSalle Rowing Club, visit their web site at www.lasallerowing. ca Joel.boyce@sunmedia.ca

OUTSIDE AND IN WE KNOW FROM THE CAR WASH LINES THAT WE LIKE TO KEEP THE OUTSIDE OF OUR CARS CLEAN, BUT NOT SO MUCH THE INSIDE

RUSS

BOND

r.bond@russbondagency.com

Let’s face a few facts and see where it gets us. First, I — like 84% of Canadians — drink and eat occasionally in my car. One in five doesn’t immediately clean up any spills — I would be the one in my group of five. Despite spending an average of five hours per week in a vehicle, Canadian drivers do not clean them regularly, with 73% of respondents cleaning their car interiors less than once every few months, according to a sur vey conducted by Canadian Tire. We’re a dirty bunch, eh? So, we know from the car wash lines that we like to keep the outside of our cars clean, but not so much the inside. This seems to be the exact opposite to the way we treat our homes — where we rarely, if ever clean the outside, but normally give the inside a good clean at least once a week. Maybe we should have a ‘spring cleaning’ event for the inside of our cars. With that in mind, I had a chance to chat with Melis sa Honour, the auto cleaning expert extraordinaire at Canadian Tire. Honour told me about all the trick products that can help you keep the inside of your car nice and clean. Take ‘salt eraser,’ for example. This

You have an investment in the whole car, not just how it looks on the outside. past winter we all picked up salt on our boots and got into our cars. Now, the salt doesn’t magically disappear — it eats away at the car — so this product is designed to loosen up the salt deposits in your car so they can be vacuumed up: brilliant. Now, we all use vacuum cleaners at home, but there is this nice bit of kit called a Bissell Auto Care ProHeat Vacuum that has a built-in sprayer to wash fabrics and a high suction vacuum to get it all back out instantly. Really, we all should take a little extra time to focus on the inside of our cars. Sure, they all sparkle on the outside, but it is on the inside where we all — well, most of us — tend to drop the ball. Remember, you have an investment in the whole car, not just how it looks on the outside.
