ELGIN SMOKING CHARGES:

(From Elgin Health Unit) - ” Under the Smoke-Free Ontario Act selling or supplying tobacco to anyone who is under 19 years old is illegal.  Using youth test shoppers, Elgin St. Thomas Public Health regularly tests all tobacco retailers in Elgin County and the City of St. Thomas to ensure they are obeying the law. 

In the second half of 2010, 82 tobacco retailers were test shopped.  Twelve of those retailers failed, supplying a tobacco product to a person under 19 years old, in contravention of the law. As a result of these illegal sales the following tobacco retailers were convicted of an offence under the Smoke-Free Ontario Act:

  • Owner of West Elgin Variety and Gas (West Lorne)
  • Owner of Friendly Variety (St. Thomas)
  • Employee at Family Mart 2 (St. Thomas)

Tobacco sales compliance (the number of tobacco retailers that refuse to sell tobacco products to test shoppers) in Elgin County and the City of St. Thomas is still lower than the provincial average.  In an effort to provide more support and education to tobacco retailers, Elgin St. Thomas Public Health offers regular Tobacco Retailer Education Sessions throughout the year.  At these sessions, as well as during regular inspections, owners and their employees are provided with resources to prevent tobacco sales to young persons.”

EAST ELGIN AGRICULTURE UPDATE:

-

(Information from Mark Wales of Malahide, a V-P with the Ontario Federation of Agriculture):

“In our area most vegetable and tobacco crops are wrapping up planting this weekend or early this coming week. Later than normal but still ok. The real challenge now is if we have a good June and July then there will be some catchup, but for the most part all fresh produce will be a few days or weeks later than normal. Field corn that was planted in between the monsoons is up, but, is showing numerous bare patches where it was under water for too long. Growers will have to decide whether to replant patches or not.

-
Still some corn going in and soybeans are just starting for the most part. A lot of land is still not really fit to work which creates challenges for growers who are looking at the calendar, their land and the forecast. Saturday we had some nuisance rain and chunks of hail along the lakeshore around 10am. No damage but we got wet planting.
Weeds of course seem to grow even under water and now that we have some heat they are a big challenge.

-

I do not know of any Ginseng structure or plantings damaged by the storm recently and there is not much in Elgin, however it is not a crop that takes well to excess moisture and disease issues will be a problem. Aspagras harvest is on but again disease and excess moisture go hand in hand. Also if the chain stores think there is a supply issue then they buy from Peru etc, which my be happening. This is a real challenge in a global marketplace where chain stores have little or no loyalty to local producers.

-
Farmers are all looking forward to lots of sunshine and only regular rainfall so we can get cropping back on some sort of schedule. Once the crop is all planted the real challenges come with delayed harvest this fall.”

“AYLMER CROSSING GUARD ISSUE SOLVED

AYLMER -  Crossing guards were on duty at both at Davenport and McGregor corners for both morning and afternoon student traffic yesterday and will be there until the end of the school year. The guards were members of the Civil Security staff for the Aylmer jail cells. Said McGregor Principal Richard Auckland: “In the short term we have one of the jail guards as our (McGregor/Assumption) crossing guards.  It is agreed by all that the safety of our children is paramount.  I am pleased that Davenport/Immanuel Christian School/East Elgin are not losing their crossing guard either with the council’s decision.  I commend town council for doing their best to meet the needs of our school community and its students.”  The situation had to be resolved by Aylmer Council Monday after the previous crossing guards terminated their employment and the school corners were left with only occasional crossing help in the past week.”

ONLINE FUNERALS?

-

(From the Ottawa Citizen) -

A Toronto-based firm that bills itself as “Canada’s first Internet funeral company” is offering services in Ottawa and other Ontario cities at prices its says are considerably lower than traditional funeral homes. Headquartered in Toronto, Basic Funerals and Cremation Choices has no fancy funeral homes where grieving families can be consoled by a funeral director, view caskets or hold visitations. Clients deal with a company representative through the Internet, by telephone or in person.

Much of the funeral arrangements can be done from home, said a company spokesman. The company has handled more than 100 funerals in the Ottawa region since it began offering services here, said Pat Larkin, the company’s manager of Eastern Ontario. Dominic Mazzone, who has a background in marketing and technology, started Basic Funerals two years ago with Eric Vandermeersch, a veteran of the funeral business from Aylmer, Ont. The company is licensed under the Ontario Board of Funeral Services.

“We took the whole model and put it half on the Internet and half on the ground. The funeral industry really hasn’t kept up with the times because here we say, that it is a 17th-century model working in the 21st century. I was really surprised there wasn’t all of the convenience of the Internet already being offered to families,” said Mazzone. The average cost of a funeral in Ontario is about $10,000, according to figures from Basic Funerals and Cremation Choices. For a complete, basic cremation it charges $1,695. A burial and grave side service is $1,800, while a basic funeral with casket will run about $3,200. Mazzone said cost and convenience are two of the factors that are attracting clients to the company. He said by the end of the year the company hopes to handle 1,500 funerals in Ontario.

 FROM AYLMER POLICE:

“There is a new phone scam with a different twist that has surfaced. The person who calls the home claims to be a tech from Microsoft and that there has been a complaint made to Microsoft about your computer and spyware ( the person has a heavy accent). They then continue to explain that your computer is infected with spyware and many other things that are running in the background affecting the firewall and that your accounts could be stolen off of the computer. They also state that even if you take your computer to a tech they will not be able to see or fix it. They claim that only Microsoft techs can see them online. Then the claim that only they can fix it and tell you they will guide you through the steps to allow them to give them full control of your computer and they will happily fix it for you.
-

NOTE *********MICROSOFT PHONES NO ONE TO ASSIST THEM OUT OF THE BLUE************ask yourself how did Microsoft get your phone number. REMEMBER THIS. IF YOUR WORRIED ABOUT ANY CALL OR SOMEONE EMAILING YOU ABOUT YOUR COMPUTER . PHONE YOUR TECH AND ASK HIM IF ITS LEGIT. HE WILL KNOW. IF HE DOES NOT KNOW HE SHOULD LOOK INTO IT FOR YOU.AND BE SURE TO LET THE POLICE KNOW. IT IS FRAUD AND FRAUD IS A CRIME.”

St. Thomas, Ontario, June 8, 2011 … The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) announced today that Morris Kikkert, of Aylmer, Ontario, pleaded guilty in the Ontario Court of Justice in St. Thomas on June 7, 2011, to two counts of failing to file income tax returns.  He was sentenced by Justice Michael O’Dea to a fine of $2,500 per count for a total of $5,000, and a total of 90 days incarceration, to be served intermittently. Kikkert was ordered to file the returns within six months.
Kikkert is the sole director of 1474567 Ontario Limited, carrying on business as Aylmer Furniture. Kikkert admitted that he failed to file the company’s T2 corporate income tax returns for the 2007 and 2008 tax years.
