“DID YOU FEEL IT?!!!”

(The mini quake in Ontario was on June 23/10)

(A quick poll in THEAYLMERNEWS revealed that  55 readers didn’t but 43 did feel yesterday’s minor quake in Central Canada. Here are some  comments:)

“-Karen Mayo: I was in Espanola and felt it

-Melissa Segeren-Dawson: Just north of Springfield, it felt like a sway wave motion

-Melissa Lampman: The bench I was sitting on started to shake

-Cheryl Mann: Port Bruce, sure did

-Jodi McLean Brindley: Couldn’t figure out why my monitor was shaking and my coffee too

-Christine Peters: Talk about motion sickness. lol.

-Kelly Pearson: My chair and the stock on the walls started to sway.”

WAGLER BOOK ON AYLMER AMISH

- 

(Ira Wagler, 50,  of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania,  left the Aylmer Amish at age 17 in the late 1970s.  He has a blog, he works for a building company and next week he has a book coming out through Tyndale Publishers – “Growing Up Amish”. He provided some insight for TANews.) 

1.  Some examples of relatives still in Aylmer/ Last time you were here?

“Everyone with the surname Wagler or Stoll, among a few others, is related to me. From first cousin to whatever distance. I was last in Aylmer for one day in early February, 2009, for my uncle Abner Wagler’s funeral. ”

2. -Why did you leave at age 17?

“Guess you have to read the book. A combination of a lot of factors. Restlessness, discontent, chafing at the rigid Amish rules and structure. And the youthful yearning for adventure, I suppose. ”
-

3. Any contact with the Aylmer community now? 

-
“Very little, except for my older sister  who lives there, surrounded by her family.”
-

4. Why write the book?

-

“Short answer: Because I write. I would have written everything in that book, sooner or later, and posted it on my blog at www.irawagler.com anyway. But the stars seemed to align, as far as timing. And so it all came down as it did. I’m still in a half-stunned, grateful awe that a respected international publisher like Tyndale picked it up. It’s always been my lifelong dream, to write a book.”
-

5. What immediate family contacts have you kept?
-

“I have ten siblings, five brothers and five sisters. I am not estranged from any, thankfully. We are all glad to see each other when we get together. I can’t be grateful and thankful enough for that.”
-

6. Do you think many have left Aylmer?
-

“When I lived there in my childhood, back in the late 60s, early 70s, there was only one district. Aylmer has grown some since, and they now have two districts, maybe three. People come and people go. That happens a lot in smaller communities like Aylmer, and doesn’t particularly reflect badly on the area.”

DAVENPORT GRAD ISSUE UPDATE:

-

AYLMER – Today is the Davenport School Grade 8 graduation. Tonight is the parent-organized Grade 8 graduation dance at the Knights of Columbus hall. But Arden McAnulty’will not be at either - instead her parents Martin and Carie McAnulty of Aylmer  are hosting a party for her at the EEC Complex. The McAnultys,  whose daughter was denied participation in the Grade 8 graduation events, said last night they had been working all year on her involvement . They said  they were even assured by the TVDSB Director that she could graduate but that depended on the Principal’s consent. She had attended Davenport a Gr. 5-8 school for 3 years until going to a special needs school last year. The Parents group organizing the dance tonight did not respond yet to our request for a comment.

AYLMER RAMPAGE MENS SOCCER

-

(From Kevin Verbruggen) – “We have had a busy season with all the weather and stuff.  The Aylmer Rampage Men’s Soccer team is having a wonderful season so far.  We are currently second in the standings in the South –Western Ontario Soccer League (SWOSL).  We have a  record of 6 -1-1.  Our only loss coming from the first place team in the league.  They are the defending two time league champs.  We face them tonight at Steen park in Aylmer at 7 and hope to hand them their first loss of the season.  We have played in Aylmer now for three season. ”

NO SIGN, NO TICKET…YET?

-

The west municipal parking lot, by the Bandshell, has no sign yet, similar to the east lot,indicating parking time restrictions. (kb) (click).

-

AYLMER – About 30 vehicles were issued $10 parking tickets for parking too long in the west municipal parking lot last Thursday. However there is no time limit sign at the lot similar to one that is posted in the main east lot. And the offenders said no tickets had been issued previously in the nine months since it was redone – and no warning was given. Police Chief Andre Reymer said: “The parking lot is bylawed and has been so for decades. Signage is everywhere else on the street and other lots. Additional signs will be posted but the law still applies. Not getting a ticket before doesn’t grant any rights.”  Said Dan Dale , Aylmer’s Director of Municipal Services,  who did tell one offender yesterday her ticket would not be processed:  “ The Town will review tickets with the individuals at their request. Also the Director of Operations is making arrangements to have new 2 hr. parking signs installed. “

DAVENPORT GRADUATION ISSUE:
