(Kayla Martens, an EESS student, went to the Budweiser Gardens Saturday to see Jase Robertson of the television series Duck Dynasty and his show in support of Farmtown Canada of Mapleton. Her impression:)


“I went because Jase was going to be there but also because the proceeds go to a good cause, Farmtown  Canada.  I watch the show becuase it is funny and entertaining. The Robertson family also seems to be down to earth and still remain family oriented with good morals and life goals. On Saturday,  Jase told a couple of stories about Uncle Si, how they incorporated religion into their everyday lives as well as how they teach their children and just about their overall home life.

There was also a slideshow of children enjoying themselves at Farmtown Canada, there were 4 CFL players that came on stage, and there was a Q&A with Jase and the founders of Farmtown Canada. For the most part I had a wonderful experience at the show. I loved how they were able to get a well known celebrity to come out and raise all that money for such a good cause.”

“Renovations are currently underway for the East Elgin Family Health team in the Medical Clinic buildings on Talbot St. west. Eventually the Family Health team will be located in the south building. In the three month interim: Dr. Anne Howe is moving to Dr. Larry Leatherdale’s office in Pt. Burwell, Dr. Jillian Toogood will be in the lower level in the south building and Dr David Graham and Dr. Duncan Sinclair will be across the hall in the north building. The Ministry of Health has approved funding for an 8300 square foot clinic. We have finalized a plan that allows us to remain on the current medical campus where other health services such as the lab, ultrasound, pharmacy and physiotherapy are conveniently located. The south building currently houses Talbot Trail Physiotherapy as well as other tenants.  Talbot Trail Physiotherapy will be moving into the physicians’ (north) building. This is a complicated series of moves that will happen in stages and take approximately 8-10 months before it is complete.”






Aylmer will have its annual Large Item curbside collection next week, from Tuesday to Friday. Acceptable items include: objects under 75 pounds; furniture, mattresses, sports equipment, bbqs, carpets, appliances (if freon is removed), air conditioners etc. (no construction materials, hazardous products, televisions, computers etc.) See the town website for specifics.

*Week of Oct. 21 – Aylmer Bulk Garbage Collection






(Information from Wendy Ralf, Client Services Representative at St.Thomas Provincial Court:)

Two of the four suspects in the robbery of the Talbot Variety in Mt. Salem on June 6 appeared in St. Thomas Provincial court this morning.

-Yousif Salim,20, of Ottawa, was sentenced to 59 days in jail and given two years probation and a ten years weapons ban on charges of accessory to robbery, failing to stop for police and failing to comply with two court orders.

-Marlena Wall, 29, of Ottawa had her court date set over to October 15 as along with a charge of robbery and theft of gas, she also faces a charge of failing to comply with a court order.

Previously, Ahmed Mouyet, 19, of Ottawa, was sentenced to 12 months probation in addition to time served after he pleaded guilty to theft of gas and Juan Franco-Palacio, 19, of Ottawa was sentenced to eight months in jail in addition to time served and 12 months probation after he pleaded guilty to robbery and breach of probation.

(Late in the afternoon of June 6 two persons entered the store and demanded money and then took off towards Aylmer in a van with two others. They were apprehended by Police after a short chase in a field south of town.)




A.C.T. PLAY: “1-900-DEE-LITE”


(Contributed) – ” ‘1-900-DEE-LITE’ is going to ‘delight’ audiences. This first comedy of the new playbill of Aylmer Community Theatre starts the season with a look at the changes that take place in our lives, with or without our permission. A recurring theme in this season, change is difficult to avoid even if one makes a concerted effort to keep things the same.

Such is the lesson learned by Scott, Dee’s son, who returns to live at home following a failed marriage. For Dee, change is to be embraced, though Tom, retired English teacher and casual acquaintance, needs convincing. That leaves Jennifer, long time friend of Scott’s, who is anxious to take things further. How this all turns out, remains to be seen.

Laurie Deven, Peter Leack, Julianna Thompson and Kevin Cunutte, under the directing debut of Sandi Loponen, bring all the fun to the Old Town Hall Theatre stage beginning Thursday, October 24 through to November 2.” (see ad for Tickets)

(At Council Monday, the Aylmer Environmental Advisory Committee received approval to sponsor a contest to choose an official flower for the town. More information from Bill Murch of the AEAC:) – “For the past year the Committee has been investigating whether the town has an official tree and flower. The consensus is that they are the Ginko and the Gazania but there is no official record. However, both are non native species.


The committee believes the town should have a native species as its official tree and flower. They have been considering either the Sycamore or the Tulip as a tree. The Committee is going to ask schools and others participate in a selection process for a flower with a contest to be noted shortly. Contestants/Groups/Classrooms wishing to participate must provide a type, picture and paragraph describing the species and why it would be a good choice. The decision will go to Council early next year.”






Aylmer Corner Cupboard reports that 464 ‘families’ are currently being served, up from 407 last year. About sixty three percent reside in town. Fifty six percent are two parent families and 25 per cent are single persons, with this group showing the greatest recent increase.

(Malahide Council Thursday passed a motion by a 5-2 vote to seek a discussion with Bayham over the possible merger of the position of fire chiefs. )


Commented Co. Mike Wolfe, who proposed the motion:  “After learning of the resignation of Bayham’s fire chief and taking into consideration that our ratepayers are looking for council to find savings wherever they can be found and after brainstorming with like minded members of council who were looking for new opportunities, the resolution was presented. At this time all we are looking to do is ask Bayham council if they have any interest in partnering in fire services and to see if any efficiencies could be found.  Unfortunately we could not get a unanimous vote to even inquire about interest and that was disappointing. Hopefully we will have a positive meeting with Bayham council and even if it doesn’t work out, five members tried something new. Status quo isn’t always acceptable and without asking the hard questions and searching out new ideas nothing will ever change.”


Said Dep. Mayor Jim Jenkins, who along with Mayor Dave Mennill voted against the motion: “I am in favour of mergers that work for the benefit of those receiving the services of the merging parties. The Ontario Fire Marshall is conducting an operational review of the Malahide Department of Fire and Emergency Services. We expect the results of that review shortly. In many instances these reports make recommendations that require new responsibilities to be undertaken by the department.The resolution passed by council authorised contacting Bayham Council to set up a meeting to discuss the possibility of establishing a position of common Fire Chief for Bayham and Malahide. Until we know the implications of the Fire Marshall’s report to Malahide, I feel that it is premature to support this resolution.”






-A Pine St. residence was broken into last Tuesday afternoon; entry was gained by forcing the back patio doors; parts of the house were disturbed but nothing was taken; no one was home at the time.


– On Saturday morning a 66 year old Aylmer man was refused service at the LCBO due to suspected intoxication and Police were called and located him at a town gas station; he blew a warning reading and lost his licence for seven days as it was a second offence.


-On Thursday at 9am an 84 year old Aylmer woman was charged with failing to stop for an amber light at the main intersection when her car, going north on John St.,  struck another vehicle which was southbound on John St. and turning east on to Talbot St. east. The woman was taken to hospital with suspected minor injuries.


-In court recently, a 27 year old former Aylmer man was acquitted of the robbery charge involving an east end variety store in April.






(By Bill Murch)

Among agenda items discussed at Council last night:


“Council accepted the recommendation from the Director of Operations that the Aylmer Environmental Advisory Committee identify a native tree and flower that the Town can adopt as its official emblems.


Considerable discussion took place when a delegation from Goodwill Industries proposed a zoning amendment that would allow them to install a trailer as a two year temporary collection location. It would be located on lands owned by Mike Hutchison Properties Inc. on the south-west corner of Talbot Street West and Wellington Street. The By-Law passed first and second readings and the applicant was asked to consider other possible locations in town before the matter is brought back for a third reading.


Council referred to staff a request from the Township of Malahide to extend municipal water and sanitary services to township lands in the Elgin Innovation Centre (former Imperial Tobacco).”








(Information from Pud Hunter, MNR Aylmer, Long Point Area Management Biologist:)

1. When does deer hunting season begin in East Elgin? – “Deer Hunting extends from Oct 1st to Dec 31st.  Archery hunting is allowed at various times in that period; guns are allowed in November and early December.

2. Is the deer population more numerous this fall? – The deer herd is considered to be in abundance at levels similar to the previous 5 years.

3. Are you allowed to keep a deer that your vehicle hits? – With an MNR Certificate of Reporting [COR], deer may be legally possessed/ kept. To obtain an MNR COR deer, the keeper needs to report the incident – their contact information, occurrence date, location, and incident – to the MNR.”

AYLMER – Police are looking for an elderly woman who was driving a red van after a 50 year old Malahide woman was hit in the crosswalk of the main intersection Wednesday around noon. The Malahide woman was apparently knocked down by the van as she was walking north on the east side crosswalk and the southbound vehicle was turning left from John St.  on to Talbot St. east.

AYLMER – A 39-year old town woman was charged with assault after an incident on Friday which occurred in two locations.

The woman then followed the man to a gas bar in north Aylmer to continue the argument. During the discussion both parties threatened each other and then the woman spat on the man.

(Contributed) – “Concerning our current ad for new firefighters, our process is to recruit firefighters once a year depending on vacancies. Our numbers are not down significantly – but each station requires a few – ie.  Station 1 has room for 2, Station 2 – 4, Station 3 – 3, Station 4 – 7. There is a maximum of 25 firefighters at each station.

Also, our Fire prevention plans during Fire Safety Week this week are to visit some schools: Mt Salem – Oct 8; Summers Corners – Oct 9 and Old Colony Mennonite School on Oct. 10.
