(AYLMER) – “The damage Sunday morning began with a report of trespassing swimmers at 1230am. They were gone on arrival. Next we had the some loud drunks yelling who pulled up a street sign on John St.N who were also gone on arrival. Finally the flower vandal at 3:30am was seen to be a male youth. Officers gave chase and lost him when he ran through the brush and Catfish Creek. At 9:30am Sunday, flowers and six trees were found to have been pulled out of the ground in Steen Park. Aylmer Parks personnel estimate the damage to date at $800 in product and labour. Officers are aware of the vandalism. No one is allowed in any Town Parks after midnight to 6am.

CLOVERMEAD BEEBEARD EVENT

-

(Contributed - From Saturday’s BeeBeard competition at Clovermead, Aylmer) – “The weather went beautifully…. hot and dry.  Perhaps because of the heat the bees did not wish to cluster as quickly on the chins. The Judges chose the 2011 Bee Beard Champion – Daryl Haney. Our 12 year old son, Jordan Hiemstra, was chosen by the crowd as their favourite. We had a very good turnout, over 300 people, we raised over $2000 for the YWCA women’s shelter.

We have been very thankful for the communities’ support, and proud of our volunteers who help to make the event a success.  The beekeepers wearing the beards in the hot weather really had the hardest job….. smiling and putting up with the tickling and itching of the bees.  We have been very busy trying to keep up with the bees, the hot dry weather has been great for honey production and we are short on boxes, so we’ve been extracting honey quickly and putting the boxes back on.

CATFISH CCA WATER ALERT!

-

(Issued yesterday from Catfish Creek Conservation Authority) – “Consistent with the Ontario Low Water Response criteria, the Catfish Creek Conservation Authority (CCCA) on behalf of the Catfish Creek Low Water Response Team are issuing a Level II Low Water Advisory Condition for the Catfish Creek watershed.  The Ontario Low Water Response indicators identify that Catfish Creek precipitation and discharge volumes are below the required Provincial seasonal thresholds:

  • 30-Day Moving Average Discharge (flow), 25% below Level II threshold.
  • To date the Short Term One Month Total Precipitation Indicator is only 25% of the average monthly total for July.

We are eagerly requesting all water users and residents of the Catfish Creek watershed to limit non-essential water use such as private swimming pools, lawn watering, public and private fountains and vehicle washing, this coupled with an additional 20% voluntary reduction in water use is being strongly advised to ensure there remains an adequate supply for essential use and to sustain aquatic ecosystems. ”

THOMAS – AYLMER – EASTERN ELGIN COUNTY STRATHROY – KOMOKA – WESTERN MIDDLESEX COUNTY LONDON – PARKHILL – EASTERN MIDDLESEX COUNTY ONTARIO.

-

CROP UPDATE

-

(Information from Mark Wales, south Malahide farmer and UFA Vice-President) – “Today (Thursday)was 38 degrees, that is hopefully as hot as it can get! Crops stop growing at 30 degrees and go into survival mode so the recent stretch of hot weather and no rain is putting a strain on everything. Wheat harvest is in full swing and should wrap up quick with no mold issues. Straw looks good. Rye is coming nicely but will be a light crop as a result of all the wet spring weather. Cucumber harvest is also in full swing but the heat is beginning to kill plants on the lighter soils. Those without irrigation will have a short crop, while those with irrigation will be busy. Other vegetable crops are suffering and need regular irrigation.

Corn and soybean crops are doing well on good soils where planting went well. However on marginal soils or soils where planting was difficult the corn and soybeans are suffering. Corn is wanting to tassle and needs rain badly. On the very light sandy soils the corn is spiking and with no rain will struggle to produce a cob. Many watersheds are declaring Level 1 droughts and by next week will be into level 2 which seeks a voluntary 20% reduction in water usage. Some ponds are running out of water where growers have been steadily irrigating. The real concern right now is how long until a decent rain, and how many blistering hot days will crops have to endure? Where growers have irrigation and can stretch their water out crops will be ok, but where there is little or no water, there is the possibility of extreme crop loss. Crop insurance adjusters will be busy come this fall.”

OPP REMINDER: “MOVE OVER”

-

In Ontario, Section 159 (2)(3) of the Highway Traffic Act requires drivers to slow down and proceed with caution when passing an emergency vehicle parked on the side of the highway with its lights activated. If the highway has more than one lane, the law requires the driver to move over and leave one lane between their vehicle and the parked emergency vehicle if it can be done safely. Failure to do so can result in fines from $400 to $2,000 and three demerit points for a first offence. Officers report that often it is older drivers who are ignorant of this law since it was enacted in 2003.
