Waste management
facility public
meeting dates set
by Trina Berlo
The County of Simcoe has announced
dates for public engagement sessions
relating to its proposed solid waste
management facilities.
County council approved a
recommendation to move forward
with the siting process for both the
organics processing facility (OPF) and
materials management f acility (MMF)
at its August 25 meeting. Additional
consideration is being given to locating
both facilities on one site. Clearview Township is being
considered as a site for the organics
plant only so if both facilities are to be
located at one site, it would be out of
the running.
A county-owned property at 1637
Fairgrounds Road North (landfill site
42) is one of seven sites identified by
the county as a possible locations for
facilities that will process compost,
waste and recyclables in the county,
rather than sending it out of the area.
Five of the shortlisted sites, located
in Springwater Township and OroMedonte, would accommodate both
facilities.
A meeting will take place at the
Stayner Arena on Tuesday, Oct. 20.
There will be two sessions; from
2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The format will include a formal
presentation taking place at 2:30 p.m.
and 6:30 p.m. followed by a Q-and-A.
“Input from our residents, especially
those from within the municipalities
where these facilities may reside, is
extremely important,” said Warden
Gerry Marshall. “We look forward to
receiving everyone’s feedback and are
excited to collectively work with one
and all towards a greener future with
the very best services possible.”
Meetings are also scheduled next
month in Springwater and OroMedonte.

Doors re-open at landmark dining establishment
by Trina Berlo
The Sovereign is back in business.
The new owner, Cyndie Gordon,
in partnership with chefs Chris
Wegener and Shaun Elliot, is
keeping with the popular Creemore
restaurant’s roots.
Gordon, also the owner of Victorian
Values, said she was the first waitress
hired at the restaurant when it was
opened by Asta and Geza Csanyi in
1979.
“It has been a place where our
family has eaten for 35 years,”
she said. “I didn’t want to see the
restaurant fade into the sunset.”
The Gordons were among
Creemore’s earliest settlers and once
owned the feed mill.
The Sovereign, said Gordon, is
an original landmark fine dining
establishment on Creemore’s main
street and its closing earlier this
year offered not only a business
opportunity, but also a chance to
resurrect the restaurant to which she
has an emotional attachment.
Gordon said people will recognize
the traditional European fare such
as Wiener Schnitzel, cabbage rolls,
Hungarian goulash and chicken
paprikash made using the recipes
developed by the Csanyis.
“People will not be able to
distinguish a difference between now
and then. I can’t. In 1979, a schnitzel

Red Seal chefs Shaun Elliot and Chris Wegener will be preparing The Sovereign Bistro and Grill's signature
dishes using the original recipes.
will taste the same today as it did
back then,” said Gordon.
“We’re starting with the basics and
we are building on that.”
New menu items are being added
each week. The restaurant, with the
new name of Sovereign Bistro and
Grill, is currently open for dinner
but there are plans to add lunch and
brunch on the weekends.
The Sovereign Bistro and Grill is
located at 157 Mill Street.
Seniors' housing project still needs funding
The team behind the Creemore
seniors housing initiative would like
to thank its generous and enthusiastic
supporters as it provides an update on
the project’s recent developments.
Every aspect of this important project
must be carefully considered, and the
focus must be on long-term success.
While the community’s support has
been incredibly encouraging, the
funds required to ensure the long-term
success of the project have not yet been
fully secured.
The team is convinced, however, that
this short-term challenge will be met
with the creativity and resourcefulness
necessary to achieve our goal.
The team appreciates the
community’s ongoing support and
interest as they work toward developing
safe, secure and accessible housing for
seniors in Creemore.
Sovereign
Bistro & Grill
Now open for dinner at 4:30 pm Wednesday through Monday.
Come enjoy our traditional favourites!

AGRITALES
The dog days of summer have come and gone
and we only have one more kick at the can this
weekend before it really starts to feel like fall.
With September comes back-to-school, backto-work and back-to-routine which comes with
its ups and downs.
For people with school-age children comes
the dreaded return of the packed lunch, a stressinducing task for most parents. But a little routine
is probably good for everyone with its regular
bedtimes and return to extra curricular activities
for both children and adults.
Although we live in a summer paradise,
surrounded by hills and the lake nearby, there is
much to look forward to as the season changes.
Fall promises a full lineup of events and
activities against a beautiful backdrop.
With September comes the launch of The
Village and I, a book of portraits and stories about
11 local people. The book, coordinated by Sara
Sniderhan and Rina Barone, will be unveiled at an
event at Avening Hall on Sunday, Sept. 19. This
will be a great opportunity to pick up the book
and meet the people portrayed therein, along with
the artists and writers. To pre-order a copy of the
book, visit curiosityhousebooks.com.
The next weekend is the fall fair at the Great
Northern Exhibition. Sept. 25-27 marks the 160th
annual fall fair, which is not to be missed. There
are many ways to take part in the fair; Enjoy a thrill
ride at the midway, take in a tractor pull, visit the
animals or compete in one of the many categories
that celebrate rural life. There are dozens of
competition categories, from quilting to preserves.
For details, visit www.greatnorthernex.com.
The Small Halls Festival will be from Oct.
1-4, when every community hall in Clearview
Township will offer a weekend of entertainment. It
will be hard to choose between comedy (including
Ron James), live music, animals doing a number of
whacky things, lots of good food and just a bunch
of fun for all ages. For a full lineup of events, visit
www.smallhallsfestival.ca.
But that’s not all.
On Saturday, Oct. 10, which is Thanksgiving
weekend, The Horse, Hound and Harvest Parade
will take place in Creemore. This year’s event will
be a new twist on a local attraction and a very old
tradition. For many years people have lined the
streets to see members of the Toronto and North
York Hunt as it rides to hounds. The parade has
always been a low-key pass through town as a
thank you for community support from the hunt
to those people who enjoy seeing the hounds,
horses and riders in their full regalia. The event
is expanding this year. For details, visit www.
TNYH.Horse.
So rest up this long weekend because it will be
a very busy fall. Keep an eye on the pages of The
Creemore Echo for more information.

Penne with Grape Tomatoes and Garlic
1 pint grape tomatoes
2 - 3 large garlic cloves
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
(EVOO)
Sea salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black
pepper
1 cup finely chopped Vidalia onion
1/4 cup white wine
1 lb. dry penne pasta
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
Chopped chives or green onions for
garnish
Slice garlic into very fine
matchsticks. Add sliced garlic to
EVOO and let sit for 10 minutes.
Cut grape tomatoes in half. Sprinkle
cut sides with sea salt and set aside
for 5 minutes. Tomatoes should start
to “juice up” as the salt draws the
moisture out. Pour half of the garlic
infused oil into a small fry pan and
heat to medium low. Once oil heats
up, add tomatoes and black pepper,
and slowly simmer them for about
10 minutes. Don’t move them around
too much or they will turn mushy. Set

In the meantime, bring pasta water
to a boil and add 1 teaspoon salt.
Add penne and cook to al dente,
usually about 12 minutes, stirring
occasionally. While pasta is cooking,
place the other half of garlic infused
oil in a large fry pan. Over medium
heat, add Vidalia onion and a pinch
of salt; lightly sauté until soft but not

almost syrupy by the time the pasta
is cooked.
When pasta is done, carefully
draw out 1 cup of pasta water. Drain
pasta and add it to the onion mixture
in large fry pan. Stir to incorporate,
adding some of the pasta water only if
necessary to help coat the penne. Add
in tomato mixture and very gently toss
to incorporate. Pour into a large pasta
bowl and top with grated parmesan
cheese and chopped chives. Serve
immediately.
Serves 4 as side dish or 2 as a main.
you enjoy it!
Feedback is great and I would love
to hear from you. Just email me at

Until next time, eat well, live well....

Photographer publishes calendar
by Trina Berlo
Creemore photographer Bryan
Davies has released a 2016 calendar
full of images of local landmarks,
events and faces.
Davies produces a calendar most
years but it has been a decade since
he published one featuring scenes
from Creemore, including Creemore
Springs Brewery, the Creemore
Log Cabin, the Toronto and North
York Hunt’s Ride to Hounds and the
Collingwood Street Bridge before it
was disassembled last week.
Davies has been photographing
Creemore since setting up shop
in the village 12 years ago, under
the moniker of Bryan Davies
Photography.
He has worked in media for more
than 50 years, having worked for
Kortright Centre for Conservation as
the resident nature photographer and
multi media specialist.
He said photography has always
been his first love, fanned by his
grandmother, who bought him a
Brownie Hawkeye camera when he
was 12 years old.
For the last 14 years he has worked
independently doing portraits and
taking commercial and editorial
assignments for area publications.
“I started out as a nature
photographer but I love photographing
people,” said Davies.
He is currently working on a book,
a collection of 40 images called

Photographer Bryan Davies’ new 2016 Creemore Calendar features a
photo of the Collingwood Street Bridge.
Exploring the Light, which is coming
out in the fall.
Davies is a founding member of
the Mad and Noisy Gallery, when it
operated as a co-op and where he still
shows work on a regular basis.
The 2016 Creemore Calendar sells
for $15.95 and is available at the
Mad and Noisy Gallery and Curiosity
House Books.
Creemore Cats
is happy to announce that after
many failed attempts to catch
the handsome Will Feral, it has
been successful. This wily fellow
has eluded them for years, but
persistence and determination has
prevailed. As handsome as he is,
the group will be happy not to be
responsible for any more of his
progeny. The organization is proud
to note that Will Feral is the 148th
cat to be spayed or neutered since
its inception and thanks Creemore
for its ongoing support.

Drivers beware
Police will be out on the roads
this weekend, looking for distracted
drivers. So far this year, 41 deaths have
been attributed to distracted driving on
OPP-patrolled roads and the number of
collisions caused by distracted drivers
is up 20 per cent compared to this time
last year.
As of Sept. 1, the new set fine for
distracted driving is $490 and three
demerit points. If contested, drivers can
be fined up to $1,000 upon conviction
for inattentive driving. Police are
serious about this deadly driving
practise, and the OPP is hopeful that
higher fines will help reduce the
number of distracted driving-related
deaths and collisions on Ontario roads. Four ONroute Highway Service
Centres now offer designated “Text
Stops” where travellers are encouraged
to stop and text in an effort to keep
motorists from reaching for a cell
phone while the vehicle is in motion. Breedon’s

Stayner Siskins have a new coach
by Alex Hargrave
Stayner Siskins Junior C hockey
club has a new coach after Clearview
Township’s best homegrown hockey
talent, Steve Walker, signed a oneyear contract with Adler Mannheim
in the German Elite Hockey League.
The club plays out of Munich in
Southern Germany.
Walker coached the Siskins for
the past three seasons accumulating
an impressive 80-27-6-7 win-lossovertime loss-shootout loss record.
Walker vacating the club’s coaching
position is significant although he will
remain as an adviser.
Through the use of the internet he
has been helping the club and will
continue to do so from overseas.
Filling his duties will be assistant
coach Dave Rainford who spent two
seasons on the bench with Walker.
Earlier in his hockey career, he
won two OMHA championships with
Collingwood.
Siskins general manager Richard
Gauthier said, “Losing Walker will
be a huge loss. It’s hard to replace a
professional like that on and off the
ice. Dave is going to do well. He’s
got a good hockey mind and strong
supporting staff.”
The 42-year-old professional is
considered to be an icon in Berlin.
His number 27 was retired on
Boxing Day 2014 and hangs proudly
at the Berlin Arena where he played 11
seasons, nine as captain for the Berlin
Polar Bears.
In the German League, he scored
213 goals and added 379 assists, one
point short of the 593 games played.
Walker’s signing made headlines
in Germany especially in Berlin as
he is heading to the Polar Bears archnemesis, Adler Mannheim.
Unfortunately, the Polar Bears
didn’t have a coaching position
available for him but would have liked
to have had him. That doesn’t quite
cut it though.
Walker is no longer a star player but
a young coach trying to make a name
for himself.
Mannheim signed former Owen
Sound Attack coach Greg Ireland to
be their head coach.
Walker’s knowledge of the German
League and the sports relationship he
had with Ireland made him an obvious
choice to be named an assistant coach.
Mannheim made the announcement
Aug. 5.
Greg Woodcroft, who played a
number of years in Germany and was a
seventh round pick by Chicago Black
Hawks, is a returning assistant coach.
Walker spent 18 years playing as a
professional hockey player.
Other notable accomplishments
include winning five German
championships, one IHL title,
represented Canada five times, scored
on Maple Leafs goaltender Felix
Potvin in one of the four exhibition
games he played with the NHL’s
Tampa Bay Lightning, and was
Gordie Howe’s line-mate in Howe’s
last professional game with the Vipers.
Not too bad for a kid who grew up
wearing the Creemore Minor Hockey
and Stayner Siskins colours.
The Siskins, by the way, are
hosting a golf tournament Sept. 19
at Marlwood Golf and County Club,
Wasaga Beach. $120 cost for 18 holes,
cart, lunch, dinner and prizes.

The North Dufferin Baseball League
final between the Ivy Leafs and New
Lowell Knights is tied at 1-1 after each
team won on the opposition’s field on
the weekend.
Leafs’ Brad Grieveson threw
for the 3-2 win Saturday in New
Lowell and the next day his cousin
Todd Gowan earned the 7-2 pitching
victory at the short confines of the
Ivy Park.
The playoffs resume in two weeks
as teams are vying for a provincial

New faces at the library this fall
by Michele McKenzie
As the summer season winds down
and we here at The Clearview Public
Library gear up for our fall/winter
2016 programming schedule, I would
like to introduce you to some new
faces that will be greeting you at our
three branches in Creemore, Stayner
and New Lowell.
Taylor Shewell is one of our
extraordinary student volunteers who
will be helping out throughout the
upcoming school year. Emma Allen
is remaining with us after her stint as
our TD Summer Reading Programmer
as casual holiday help. We hope to see
Shannnon Lougheed again in the
near future too. These three have been
an invaluable addition to the library
team over the summer vacation season.
(See photo on page 12).
We wish to welcome Helena
Hayward, Beth Crawley and
Maddie Donnelly who will be gracing
the circulation desks on a regular
basis starting in September. They will
be joining the rest of the library ladies
(Rita, Glenda, Janice, Mary Anne,
Elizabeth, Elaine and myself) in
offering the best library service,
information resources and programs.
Speaking of programs, we will be
making an appearance at the Great
Northern Exhibition on Saturday, Sept.
26. In partnership with Curiosity House
Books, we are presenting a book talk
about The Temporary Bride: A Memoir
of Love and Food In Iran by Jennifer
Klinec at the Creemore Farmers’
Market as well on Saturday, Sept. 26.
