ONE YEAR AGO THIS WEEK:

 

“EARTHQUAKE IN AYLMER?”

“Some residents started their New Year’s celebrations with a rumble Saturday afternoon when a 4.0 magnitude earthquake in Ohio sent ripples across the border. The quake struck at 3:05 p.m. near Youngstown-Warren, Ohio, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Earthquakes Canada initially reported the quake hit outside Aylmer, Ont., but later pointed to their American counterparts for information.”  (Update) -“A 4.0 magnitude earthquake centered in Ohio (and felt in Aylmer) on New Year’s Eve afternoon did not occur naturally and may have been caused by high-pressure liquid injection related to oil and gas exploration and production, an expert hired by the state of Ohio said on Tuesday.”

NEW FISH, CHIPS IN AYLMER

 

(Dad N Daughters Fish and Chips on King Street opened yesterday. Owner Rodger Greenlaw provided this information) – “I employ my daughter Allison and 4 others. We offer 3 kinds of fish: Haddock, Cod, and Halibut. We have Chicken strips, pogos for the kids. We also have Onion Chips, Battered Mushrooms, and Battered Veggies. All meals come with coleslaw and tartar sauce. I picked this location because of the parking lot across the street and I love the downtown. I got into this because my parents used to go out every Friday night for Fish and Chips; they would go as far as Niagara Falls NY or Buffalo (from St.Catharines) so I thought a great tribute to my parents would be to open this. The name Dad N Daughters is because it’s a family affair – I have two other daughters Rebecca and Lauren who will be helping when they can. The hours are Sunday to Wednesday, 11 am to 8 pm and Thursday to Saturday, 11 am till 8 pm. Phone 765-3473.”

 

 

CHRISTMAS CARE DELIVERIES TODAY

A READER WRITES:

 

(Aylmer Council this past Monday examined several issues raised by town staff in response to in a letter earlier this fall by Aylmer Community Theatre about Town Hall theatre usage costs)

“Several issues were addressed at Monday’s Town Council meeting which impact Aylmer Community Theatre as well as other groups using town facilities.

The first was the cost of technicians at the Old Town Hall Theatre. The work they do is incomparable in community theatre and their donations back to the theatre have maintained the calibre of tech for which Aylmer is known. Town staff have recommended that they should become town employees. Not only is this counter to the technicians’ wishes but it also means that the cost of technicians, which had risen to $25.00 per hour ($14.75 of which is an administration fee), will continue to be prohibitive for many groups.

A SOCAN licence has been provided in the past for the building. This licence allows anyone to legally play music, live or recorded, in the facility. Other town facilities must be covered so it would only make sense that the arts and entertainment venue is also covered. Town staff  recommended not to provide a SOCAN licence

The final issue was the requirement of all renters of any town facility to have $2 million liability insurance. The town’s insurance provider recommended to town staff  that, indeed, groups such as ACT must have this insurance but that other groups might not need it. This is the only decision that made any real sense though its impact on ACT is significant.  It means that groups hoping to rent the Bandshell meeting room would not necessarily require that insurance. This opens up the possibility for small groups who do not have coverage to use the facility. Since the passing of By-law 64-12 the use of the Bandshell meeting room has dropped significantly with only about 4 non-town related groups using the facility. Town staff will check with the town’s insurance provider if they have further questions regarding groups who want to use/rent town property. This decision will cost ACT $1000.00 for 45 days of coverage.

Application will be made to the Town of Aylmer for a grant to help with some of these increased expenses but it is not only about the money. It is about the spirit of community that is lacking in the town office. Whether obtaining lottery licenses or making decisions on behalf of town council, little thought is given to the people of Aylmer and how their lives will be impacted.”  (Barb Warnock)

CHRISTMAS CARE DELIVERIES FRIDAY

 

-(Christmas Care boxes are being packed and delivered Friday for needy East Elgin families. Information on the program is provided by Carolyn Buis Aylmer Christmas Care Co-ordinator.)

“In 1990 we moved to Immanuel Christian School and packed 209 boxes. Last year we packed around 350 food hampers. They were packed in just under one hour.  The setting up of the assembly line of groceries, bagging of the apples, oranges, cookies, sweet potatoes and packing of baby food takes all the prep time before. The arrival of the fresh produces, turkeys and hams and the donated goods that have been collected by schools, business and parades etc. all needs  to be co-ordinated to their designated spots.

We have approximately 75 volunteers ranging in age from 7 years to 80 years old. The wrapping of the boxes occurs on the evening before we pack. It is very impressive in the morning to see the rows of wrapped boxes.The deliveries start as soon as the packing is completed. For Straffordville, Vienna and Port Burwell the boxes and the toys from the Optimists are picked up by members of the Lions Clubs and the Legion and then are distributed or picked up at the respective places. The length of time of delivery depends on the number of community members who show up to do this part of the project.

We follow Canada’s Food Guide to provide and encourage balanced and healthy eating ie.  Cereal, butter, cheese, canned milk, canned fruit and veggies, fresh lettuce, carrots, apples, oranges, canned meat, fresh turkey or ham depending on family size. Special treats of a package of cookies, candies and hot chocolate, jello and dessert topping are added. The donated/collected goods are added to the boxes also. These will vary in quantity and variety from year to year, but usually consist of  dry and canned pasta and sauces (lots of kraft dinner and mr. noodle), dry and canned soups, tuna, canned fruit and veggies and stove top stuffing and cranberry sauces etc.

My husband Ron and I have been with this project approximately 25 years. We have many individuals and families who return each year to lend a helping hand. That is very likely why everything moves so smoothly and quickly.  We stand amazed every year at the number of volunteers.”

 

 

CRAM THE CRUISER

 

Aylmer Police and Elgin Feeds sponsored another successful Cram the Cruiser project this past weekend at the Elgin Feeds store with donations going to Corner Cupboard and the Optimist Toy Drive. (Contributed) (CLICK)

The survey’s deadline is December 31. It will be available for public access on the town and the Police website tomorrow. http://www.aylmerpolice.com/newsandevents.

 

 

ONE YEAR AGO THIS WEEK:

 

“ONTARIO COMPENSATES JOE WEBBER”

 

“The Ontario government awarded Joe Webber $392,500 in compensation Wednesday. Webber, 31, of Malahide, had been wrongly convicted of armed robbery in connection with a 2006 home invasion near Corinth. “I’d like to offer my sincere apologies to Mr. Webber for the miscarriage of justice that occurred,” Attorney General John Gerretsen said. Webber was convicted in 2008 of forcible confinement and armed robbery in connection with a home invasion, in which four people — a couple, their 15-year-old son and a friend — were tied up and held at gunpoint for more than an hour by two masked intruders. The Ontario Court of Appeal set aside Webber’s convictions and acquitted him in February 2010 after another man, Justin Parry, came forward and confessed. An accomplice, Mansa Fraser, had already been convicted in connection with the crime. Webber had been sentenced to 7½ years in prison. ”

 

 

AYLMER CHRISTMAS TREE DISPOSAL

EESS ASPIRE PROGRAM EXPANDING

 

(Information on the second year of the ASPIRE program – providing instruction to students in non-traditional settings -which is based at Summers Corners Public School is provided by EESS Vice Principal Abe Wall:)

1. How is the program progressing in its second year –  ”A.S.P.I.R.E. currently has approximately 230 full time students enrolled in the program. It is an EESS program so they are EESS students. While the ‘hub’ is Summers Corners Public School, teachers meet with students at Summers Corners, EESS, libraries, coffee shops, work places or in their homes. Teachers communicate with students in person and through digital media.

2. Has enrolment increased? Enrolment has changed because of the dedication and commitment of staff and administration. The team of committed people is focussed on delivering educational programming to students for whom, due to a variety of reasons, a more traditional day school model at main campus is not a viable option.

3. Who is the target audience? – There has been a definitive effort made to reach out to the Mennonite community. Many of the students from this portion of the population have historically participated in secondary education at a diproportionately lower rate. And because of a focus on meeting students where they are, each student’s program may look different.”
