Edmonton, I did a lot of camping in Jasper.
By the time I moved to Calgary, I had a baby
to look after. Although I missed camping, day
trips to Banff were lovely.
We will also be visiting Drumheller. I tried to
visit the dinosaur park there when I lived in
Calgary, but on the day we drove to it, it was
closed. I was quite disappointed. I did enjoy
the drive. The Badlands are awesome!
ON!

I promised to tell you about my recent travels
last month, however, I have had no time to
write it. Taking a vacation means cutting
short the amount of time it takes me to
produce the Briar Crier, and I'm leaving for
Alberta on Friday, which means my work
is going to be even more challenging next
month. I wish the days were longer!
It was reported in the news recently that
an Australian paleontologist found a new
species of dinosaur about the size of a dog
and possessing a lethal claw in northwestern
Alberta (Grande Prairie).
So, I will soon have two travel stories to write
for you.
Enjoy the summer and keep reading the
Briar Crier. We will be offering another prize
giveaway in September.
The WINNER of the $75 GIFT CARD
from the new owners at VINE HAVEN in
Alliston is Lisa Fitzpatrick. Lisa works at
Hair Design in Green Briar.
I lived in Alberta 35 years ago. My eldest son
was born there. I have never been back.
No doubt, I'm in for a big surprise.
My husband, Ron, has never been to Alberta.
I am going to enjoy visiting the many
beautiful places I used to frequent (I lived
in Edmonton first, and then Calgary) with
him. We are looking forward to visiting the
Athabasca Glacier in Jasper National Park,
which I preferred over Banff when I lived in
Alberta, because of it's unspoiled landscape.
We will be visiting Banff as well, which is just
as beautiful. I didn't spend as much time in
Banff as I did in Jasper all those years ago,
because I lived in Edmonton for a longer
time than in Calgary. While I was living in

LETTER: A Special Invitation to
Carnegie Hall
As some of you may know, a group of us
residing in Green Briar and Briar Hill belong
to the New Tecumseth Singers in Alliston.
Twice each year (Spring and Winter), with
the Dufferin Concert Singers of Orangeville
we perform two or more concerts in various
locations around the area.
Last November we chose Handel’s Messiah
as our Christmas offering to the community
and a recording of one of the concerts reached
the Distinguished Concerts International in
New York City. This resulted in an invitation
to assist in the performance of the Messiah at
Carnegie Hall in November of this year.
The Artistic Director states in his letter —
“Your musicians will join with other outstanding
choristers to form the Distinguished Concerts
Singers International, a choir of distinction.”
AWNING MASTER
Patio & Window Awnings
Serving Green Briar & Briar Hill for over 22 years
We will be part of 250 choristers from all areas
in North America and so we are very excited
to receive the honour of being invited to sing
at this prodigious location.
Our stay in New York will be 5 days as
rehearsals are required before the actual night,
so the trip becomes somewhat expensive,
especially with hotel accommodation,
transportation, meals, (in addition to a fee to
sing!) and of course, the ever changing rate
of exchange, but we felt this was a “once in
a lifetime” opportunity which could not be
disregarded!

Alliston Potato Festival
Fri, Sat, Sun Aug 5, 6 & 7
The Alliston Potato Festival starts with one of the
best parades in the country; the Alliston Potato
Festival Parade, organized by the Alliston Rotary
Club. The Parade starts at 7pm on Friday, August
5th at Banting Memorial High School, runs west
Along Victoria Street to Ontario Street, then south
to Nelson Street. Pick up a snack from one of the
vendors and find a spot along the route. Enjoy
yourself!
The Festival that follows the parade is also one
of the best in the country. It was selected by the
provincial organization Festivals and Events
Ontario as one of the Top 100 Festivals to visit in
Ontario for several years, consecutively.
The Alliston Potato Festival offers many activities
and fun for everyone. Activities take place in
several locations in Alliston; at the Alliston
Memorial Arena, the Fairgrounds, the Legion, and
on and around the main street (Victoria Street).
Many community organizations will have booths,
there will be food, craft and clothing vendors
(look for summer sales), exciting live music
performances, the Footloose Cloggers, Scottish and
belly dancers, buskers, all kinds of demonstrations
and the popular Texas Hold 'em Tournament for
poker players at the Arena (registration is at 6:30pm
on Friday). There will also be a Bad to the Bone
beer garden, Midway, Bingo, a Women's Softball
Tournament, Classic Car Show and Pine Block Car
Races. The Jazzparagus Band will play all day long

dog shows, etc. ― your Briar Crier can't name them
all!
St. John's United Church (Victoria &
Centre St.) will serve a PANCAKE

Saturday. This breakfast has been a tradition at the

OUR PATIENTS SAY ...
Since 2004, Dr. Peacock and Dr. Amarnath of NTOC
have very capably managed my eye care needs in
conjunction with my Ophthalmologist. As a regular
patient at their clinic, I can attest to their competence
and to their high-tech equipment. The NTOC
Optometrists have an excellent working relationship
with the two Ophthalmologists who have privileges at
Stevenson Memorial Hospital. This is so important to
their patients who are determined to require the next
level of eye care. Their staff are very pleasant, friendly
and helpful. NTOC is a great place to entrust your eyes.
― J.J. Paul Whiteside, CMA, FCMA (Alliston)
Dr. Amarnath and Dr. Peacock have been more
than accommodating under both our planned and
emergency situations. NTOC always provides flexible
options and they are always happy to see us. Each visit
is a very positive experience. The services and products
they provide are comprehensive, but not highpressured, and they provide service and guarantees
that are much higher than industry standards.
We totally enjoy and appreciate being their patients
and recommend NTOC without reservation.
―Maryann & Gordon Foy (Alliston)
When I experienced a serious eye condition in 2006,
I was very impressed with the knowledge, expertise, and
quick response by Dr. Amarnath and his team at NTOC.
I was referred to an eye specialist the very same day, and
my follow-up care was thorough and efficient,
even to this day. This team works with absolute
professionalism, and I would highly
recommend them to my
family and friends.

Betty Tomlinson Anderson Remebered
The South Simcoe Arts Council is saddened to
hear about the loss of one of its finest original
founding members, Betty Tomlinson Anderson,
who was instrumental in the formation of the New
Tecumseth & Area Arts Council in 1991. Betty
worked in unison with the founding members, as
well as the Council of the Town of New Tecumseth,
to foster the cultural enrichment of New Tecumseth
and Area by developing a widespread appreciation
of support for and involvement with the arts.
Under her presidency, the New Tecumseth and
Area Arts Council flourished and the Allan

came into being. At the suggestion of the Ontario
Trillium Foundation, the arts council eventually
took on the name as we know it today.
A stalwart supporter of keeping the "arts alive"
through the years, Betty Anderson’s enthusiasm
and love of the arts will be missed but not
forgotten. The South Simcoe Arts Council has
recently announced its “Creative Works, Youth
Writing Contest” dedicating the Allan Anderson
Award to the Teen Short Story. Even in most
recent days, Betty was enlightened by this literary
project!

Andre Beneteau was born in Windsor, Ontario. His
interest in photography was piqued early in his
childhood; after undertaking a degree in geology,
Andre returned to this early passion and studied
audiovisual production. In 1987, Andre shifted
from AV production and began a career as a
freelance photographer.
He specialized in architectural hotography—
a sensibility that has influenced his subsequent
work—as well as documentation of artist’s work,
including stained glass installations. Andre was
featured in a solo exhibition in 2002 at Double
Door Studios, Anten Mills and in 2003 documented
sited projects for the MacLaren Art Centre’s major
public art festival Shore/lines. In 2005, Andre
was commissioned by the MacLaren Art Centre
to document the community and environment
of Barrie’s Little Lake, culminating in a group
exhibition. An active freelance photographer and

What do photographers, visual artists, an actor
and a writer (yes, that’s me) have in common?
Absolutely nothing! Hence the formation of the
Unlikely Collective.
Photography, painting, poetry, and philosophy; it
all comes together to tell a story.
The phrase ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’ is
attributed to Fred R. Barnard, who actually said ‘a
picture is worth ten thousand words’ in 1927. It’s
true, isn’t it? A good picture – be it a photograph
or a painting – can stop you in your tracks. And
it should. It should make you want to look at it.
To see into it. To hear it. Wait – hear it? Yes! Art
speaks, doesn’t it? To all of us, in some way. Even
if it makes you not want to look – it has an effect. It
is very personal. You and I may look at exactly the
same thing and see and feel something completely
different. This is one of the greatest pleasures
of art; and it is the very epitome of the Unlikely
Collective.
“Diverse in their fields and experiences; their
intentions and expectations; these seven local artists
united to share their work. Work that is full of
emotion, experience and personality. In so doing,
ideas were explored and stretched – like a canvas
(but not only on canvas); and they brought forth
their creative energy. Limits were pushed, and
rules were broken.”
This experience ensured that they collectively
envisioned various paths on one journey, where
their destination was different, yet shared.
The Unlikely Collective invites you to visit their
first exhibition as a group, at the South Simcoe Arts
Council (SSAC) Gallery Shop at
41 Victoria Street East Alliston. The Exhibition
runs until September 6th. The Artists will be in
attendance, so please come out and support our

In a letter from the Assistant Deputy
Minister of the Health System Quality and
Funding Division, Stevenson Memorial was
commended for maintaining the lowest
Emergency Department Length of Stay for
all patients within the Medium-Volume
Community Hospital Group.
Stevenson Memorial’s average Emergency
Deparment wait times were 4.7 hours, far less
than the overall group’s performance of 6.6
hours. With the exception of a brief 3-month
period, Stevenson Memorial has maintained
this impressive ranking for three years.
This ranking brings implicit recognition
to the innovative systems that have been
implemented hospital-wide through all
departments which enhance patient flow.

“Stevenson Memorial is extremely proud
to receive recognition from the Ministry of
Health,” says Jody Levac, President and
CEO. “This success is only possible due to
the efficient hospital-wide systems we’ve
implemented and the amazing teamwork
of our entire hospital staff, which creates a
positive patient experience while ensuring
optimal patient flow through the ED to all
other hospital units. The whole hospital
shares in—and is an integral part of—this
recognition. Stevenson Memorial remains
committed to providing safe, high-quality care
as we move forward with our redevelopment
project, which will bring with it an expanded
Emergency Department along with many
other needed infrastructure improvements
that will ensure we are able meet the needs of
our growing community without sacrificing
wait times or quality.”
The Central LHIN is engaged in discussions
with Stevenson Memorial to learn more about
its best practices so as to assist other hospitals
across the province in improving their
Emergency Department performance.
Stevenson Memorial is a vibrant, fullyaccredited hospital located in the Town of
New Tecumseth, serving the South Simcoe
region. We endeavor to help ensure that the
residents of our communities can access safe,
quality care where and when they need it.

care… every step of the way.

NOTTAWASAGA LADIES
GOLF ASSOCIATION
Hey there again, lady golfers! Well, haven't
we been the fortunate ones with our Tuesday
morning weather this year. Not so much the
last couple of years; right Arline and Gill?
So, let's hope this nice stuff continues.
The Nottawasaga June Days Interclub Team
looked great in their new purple team outfits.
In speaking with the ladies, they experienced
good golf, lovely courses, very pleasant golfers
from other clubs, and nice post game lunches
and camaraderie.

1st: Tom & Bob Mackareth, Frank Randall,

winner was Anna Arblaster and the 9 hole
winner was Bonnie Marshall. Nice
work, ladies.
Congrats to Rosemary LeClair for
her recent, July 29th HOLE-in-ONE
on #8 of the Valley Course, a tough one
for many of us. Any tips on how it's done and
what prayers to say?
At the time of this writing, ladies are in their
semis or finals of Match Play with many
matches very close to the very end. Exciting!

services to enhance a home’s value during the
sale. But Outsmart Clutter is about much more
than staging a home for resale, or packing
up for a major move, or downsizing. Smith’s
services are also of incredible value to people
who love where they are and want to stay
there, but feel overcrowded and somehow
exhausted in their own homes.
Outsmart Clutter
by BL Storrie
for the Briar Crier
Entrepreneur Darla Smith created a
philosophy for contented living when she
branded her company, Outsmart Clutter –
“simplify, create, live”. Those three words are
Smith’s mantra, and she stands by them as
solidly as she stands by her clients while she
redefines their living environments. “My goal
is to help clients create space and save time.
The result is having the simplicity in your
home to enjoy life.”
A warm, engaging, and insightful woman,
Smith launched her business by a unique twist
of fate, after she volunteered her services to
assist some people clean up and organize
their homes. She intuitively relied on her own
sense of unfailing calm and order to get the
job done. She also found she has an ability to
stay focused and organized, even with piles
of everything all around her. Those qualities
are priceless to her clients, who are mostly
overwhelmed by the process of reducing their
possessions alone.
Smith earns her clients both directly, and
through partnership with realtors offering her
Smith isn’t simply in the business of following
her clients’ lists of what to “Keep” and what
“Not to Keep”. Interestingly, the driving
force behind Outsmart Clutter is emotional,
rather than material. People think they are
hiring Smith to help eliminate unwanted and
unneeded items that overflow a home after
many decades of life experiences. However,
Smith is often struck by how many clients,
regardless of age or lifestyle, suffer from
the unrecognized stress and chaos of being
overburdened with “things”—things with
powerful memory and emotion attached to
them. These emotions change the quality of
life in a negative way, and her clients don’t
always know this when the sorting
process starts.
“I ask people why they want to keep an
object,” Smith says. Her clients always have
many objections to getting rid of items, and
Smith makes it her practice to challenge her
clients when it’s necessary. There’s a reason
we keep things, she says. Very often, there’s
no good reason, though, except sentimentality
or memory—yet those feelings can sometimes
hold us back from experiencing what our
lives are meant to become now. This applies
especially after retirement, when our closets
and basements are piled high with the
collections of decades. Those collections don’t
define us anymore. Smith calls the process
“un-nesting”.
“We spend the first half of our lives
accumulating things, and the second half
getting rid of them,” she says. “The less
you have, the more freedom you have for a
satisfying later-in-life experience of yourself.”
There’s a subtle current operating under the
de-cluttering process, according to Smith.
Letting go of things can symbolize, and even

Lifestyle
actualize, the letting go of past hurts and
disappointments. Smith has encountered
many clients who are initially preparing to
leave their homes behind, but end up staying
after her services are complete. They find new
life in a renewed home environment, and
rediscover their peace of mind.
A tip: if you absolutely can’t give up on an
object, but it’s in a dusty box, crowding your
storage area—photograph it and put it on the
wall, Smith advises. Then let it go. You’ll have
your space back, and you’ll have the memory
too, only now it will be visible. Many of us
have loads of scrapbooks and memorabilia
from our children’s lives, thinking they’ll want
them some day. Only this generation of young
families cares more about saved electronic
media than saved objects. Smith recommends
creating a selective photo book as one way to
get rid of those grade school greeting cards
and macaroni Christmas ornaments you can’t
bear to part with.
“We all want to be the best version of
ourselves in this lifetime,” Smith says. “If
it doesn’t enhance the life you live today, it
should really go.”

Colouring Those
North Facing Rooms
I
t's a lot of fun selecting
an interior colour
scheme for your home,
but sometimes those North
facing rooms with their
indirect natural light can
present a challenge. The
problem is increased when
your room has North
facing windows that need a
window covering for privacy
and the sunlight is further
diminished. No matter what
you do, the room is always
shady. One client with this
problem added skylights
over their room — it made a
huge difference; eliminating
the issue of shade and
improving the esthetics of
the whole room!
Since that's not often a viable
solution, let's look at the
things to consider while
choosing colour. To begin
with, the shadiness caused
by indirect sunlight usually
has a blue hue to it. This
needs to be understood when
looking at colour choices, as
they will be affected by this.
Many designers describe
North facing rooms as being
"moody" since the paint and
fabric colours will appear to
change in the shifting light.
You'll notice, for example,
that if you choose a pale
yellow for your room, like
Benjamin Moore 2020-60
Moonlight or
OC-107 Antiquity; you will
find the colour seems to
change from a pale grey
yellow at the brightest time
of day to a pale greyish
green as the light fades. Even
painting the room standard
white will still result in
varying shades of grey
during the day.
The Briar Crier can be viewed online at BRIARCRIER.CA  August 2016 27
Lifestyle
Also, be sure that your interior lighting is as
white as possible — many fluorescent bulbs
cast a distinctly yellow tone which will make
your "shade friendly" paint colour look very
flat when the lights come on.
That said, we now need to consider the type
of room you have and the overall feeling you
want to create. If it's a bedroom or den that
you're doing; maybe you can embrace the
shadows and create a cozy retreat with rich
colours and warm lighting. Try Benjamin
Moore CC-950 Queen's Wreath, HC-151
Buckland Blue or AF-545 Solitude, to name a
few. To enhance the beauty of the shadows,
add decor items that reflect the light; like
metallic items in chrome, brass or nickel.
You may also use glass, crystal or mirror
pieces — even using textiles or wallpaper with
a sheen or sparkle surface will help.

or dining room; you may want to brighten
the area as much as possible. This is where
we have to choose a colour that loves being
around blue. If you want the ever popular
taupes or beiges, consider Benjamin Moore
OC-15 Baby Fawn, OC-10 White Sand or
CC-80 Grey Mist. I also like OC-58 White Ice
and AF-20 Mascarpone. For a bit of drama,
paint the North wall a rich dark shade,
especially if that wall has windows; think
CC-38 Nightfall Sky. It makes the windows
and your view from them really pop!

Wine Appreciation Club
“Thirsty Thursday”
"Wine improves with age — the older I get the better I like it”!
Have you noticed that music gets along perfectly with wine? Well, that's because they both represent
romance and beauty — glamour and sophistication. Music and wine are similar in another way; music is the
ONLY industry with more labels than wine, and wine has 60,000.
How does one choose!
At one time, every visit to the LCBO where the shelves are stocked with bottles of wine from many different
countries, and regions within those countries, was intimidating for me. My travel experiences helped; I
have enjoyed perfect white wines in Germany, bubbly Vinho Verde in Portugal, the refreshing wines of
New Zealand, chocolate flavoured wine from Finger Lakes, Super Tuscan in Italy, the earthy flavour of old
French traditional wines, and probably one of the best ice-wine in Kelowna. It wasn't until I read the book
'The Everday Guide to Wine by
Master of Wine & Spirits Expert J. Simonetti-Bryan, however, that I finally felt like I got it.
To choose the best and get the most out of a glass of wine takes experience and knowledge.
I would like to invite wine enthusiasts to join me for Thirsty Thursday, every 3rd Thursday of the month,
to learn more about wine and experience different wines. We will travel along one country at a time, and
through structured tasting and training of your senses, you will know more about the glass of wine you are
drinking.
Thirsty Thursday will work best with a number of participants that can be divided by six. Our plan is to
have six samples from six bottles of different wine that represent a variety of grapes, wine regions, or wine
style. We will also be learning how to pair wine with food.
Please, email to [email protected] if you are interested to participate and open to this interactive
experience.
Cheers!
Yours Lina
