Opinion
EDITORIAL
Best to stay home this
Thanksgiving weekend
There’s a lot to do in Creemore this weekend so it’s
best to stay put and get the relatives to come to you.
On Saturday morning, the village is the place to be for
the Farmers’ Market, apple pie contest, the Toronto
North York Hunt’s parade of hounds and horses and
Oktoberfest at Creemore Springs Brewery.
We had quite a bit of fun putting together this
special harvest edition of The Creemore Echo, in
which we chose to feature things relating to our fourlegged friends while celebrating rural life and farming.
Whether out on the ranch, at the vineyard, on the
farm or at the resort for dogs, the theme that runs
throughout the stories is of community, family and
friends.
It will be wonderful to be surrounded by loved ones
this weekend, catching up and feasting on good food,
but let’s be honest, having houseguests does come
with its challenges.
For those who live in the country, you may have to
apologize for the sleepy flies that seem to have enough
energy to bite but not enough to fly (those guys are
jerks) but the more flyswatters the better. Just leave
the vacuum cleaner out because you will need in again
in five minutes.
The food drama and overly coordinated meal is
unavoidable whether you are hosting or going to
someone else’s house. You’ve probably already
had dozens of emails and phone calls about who is
preparing the potatoes only to look around the dinner
table to find them missing entirely.
One trick that seems to work well is to tell everyone
not to bring anything for dinner and you’ll end up
not having to cook because no one wants to show up
empty handed or they don’t trust that you’ll get it right.
But the upside of hosting Thanksgiving is that
you get to keep the leftovers and etiquette dictates;
it’s your house so you can make the gravy your way.
It’s getting down to the wire now so everyone
should have a plan as to where everyone will sleep.
That usually means visitors in the real beds –
grandparents in the master bedroom and aunts and
uncles in the children’s rooms – children on the couch
and you are on the basement floor.
All kidding aside, we hope everyone is able to
celebrate a successful harvest and a bountiful year.
We hope your friends and family enjoy a weekend in
the country, against a backdrop of fall colours.
May they leave bloated and happy and looking
forward to returning soon… but not too soon.

The Way we were
Since 1939, the Giffen family has been bringing in the apple harvest in Glen Huron.
Clearview residents will not benefit from big solar
Editor:
Before I begin please understand my comments
are not directed to solar on homes and rooftops, (or
in someone’s garden).
Green energy, clean, cheap, the way of the future…
That is what we are all told and wanted to believe
and it all looked good to me until concerns about
how a large-scale solar installation would affect the
community, land, water and property values around it.
I began to look at the Green Energy Act and solar
energy.
Very profitable for big business, often financed
by foreign interests and contracts through the Green
Energy Act/FITT, solar energy is far from efficient
and rarely performs at maximum megawatt capacity,
which is only possible within those few hours when
the sun is at the correct angle and it’s not hazy, cloudy,
foggy, raining or snowing and the panels are clear
of dust, raindrops ice, leaves or even bird droppings
(they do have to be cleaned).
Mining, manufacture, transportation, installation,
and operation, all depend on fossil fuel, and solar cells
produce more chemicals (mercury and cadmium) and
lethal man made toxic emissions than those energy
sources it is supposed to replace. And there are no
recycling plants that can safely handle used toxic
solar cells.
While proponents promise to replace soil, replace
trees and return the land to its original condition,
unless they have Mother Nature on their payroll, I
don’t know how they can restore an ecosystem.
There seems to be a lot of evidence to suggest
that, from beginning to end, large-scale solar energy
is not green.
Further, an open letter to G20 meeting of Energy
Ministers Oct. 2, 2015 quotes entrepreneur and
philanthropist Bill Gates as stating, the cost of decarbonization using today’s technology is “beyond
astronomical”. Having invested $1 billion in finding
new ways to harness the energy from the sun, he
suggests governments likewise redirect wasteful
green subsidies to research and development. Electricity exports (hydro we don’t need) have cost
Ontario taxpayers billions of dollars – $2 million in
June alone (Queen’s Park Report) – something we all
should investigate.
That solar is big business no one can argue.
Who benefits? That is indeed debatable. Certainly
Clearview residents will not. Not one light bulb
will be lit, our taxes will rise because of added
maintenance to roads, emergency services, and fire
department upgrading, and of course if this plays out
as it has in other areas, home values near the site will
drop, if they can be sold at all, and no one seems to
care about that.
Council can say no to large-scale renewable energy
projects in this township.
If council has no power and cannot influence the
outcome, why are they making any decision on this
matter at all?
One cannot help wonder at the reasoning.
We all have a lot to learn in order to make wise
decisions for our future.
As for myself, I’ve come to the conclusion that
green energy in its present form, like the emperor’s
new clothes, doesn’t exist.
Rose Danko,
New Lowell.

Gonorrhea and antibiotic resistance on the rise
Dr. Colin Lee Gonorrhea is here, more people are
getting it, and that is bad news.
Last year, the number of gonorrhea
cases reported in Ontario hit its highest
point in a decade. Simcoe and Muskoka
had 115 reported cases in 2014, a 58%
increase from the 73 reported cases in
2013 and a 72% increase from the 67
reported cases in 2012.
Health officials and scientists alike
view the trend with alarm. Beyond the
numbers, they know that gonorrhea
is getting harder and harder to treat
because it is becoming resistant to all
but a handful of antibiotics.
The simplest solution is to avoid
contracting or spreading gonorrhea
in the first place. In a world of buyer
beware, some sexually active people
continue to choose condomless sex
instead of having The Conversation.
We need to start saying things like
“I really care about you. I have been
tested for STIs, have you?” or “Sorry,
I always use a condom.” Some people
don’t know that gonorrhea can be
spread through oral sex, so if you are
engaging in oral sex it is important to
use a condom or barrier.
You can have a sexually transmitted
infection (STI) like gonorrhea and not
know it because you might not have
any symptoms (up to 50%) – or, if
you have symptoms, you might not
recognize them. Unless you get tested,
you may never know you are infected.
We encourage testing with every new
sexual partner.
Symptoms may include burning or
pain during urination, and discharge.
To ensure that the antibiotic treatments
remain effective into the future, health
care professionals and patients need
to work together. At present, the
recommended and best treatment
for gonorrhea includes two different
antibiotics at the same time: one by
injection and the other consists of four
pills. After treatment with antibiotics, it
is important to wait a full seven days
before resuming condomless sex.
If it is not treated properly, gonorrhea
can lead to secondary diseases or
sterility, and an increased risk of HIV.
Patients and health care professionals
need to fight gonorrhea together by
doing their part to test, treat and prevent
gonorrhea transmission. So far, the
first-line treatment has been working.
But it may not last, and we are running
out of options.

Time to blow
the whistle on
Harper
Editor:
I wish to register my wholehearted
agreement with Simon Heath. His
letter to the editor in the Sept. 18
issue, regarding the present federal
government, is among the most concise
and compelling I’ve ever read.
No one disputes the fact that the
majority of Canadians do not want any
more of the Harper mob. (Even the
Conservatives’ own recent television
ads call the election “close.”) We need
to band together to prevent another
catastrophic round of undemocratic
governance. When an elected leader
starts declaring that he’s “100%
certain” he’s right about major policy
decisions, it’s time to blow the whistle.

sounds.
They went to investigate with
flashlights and looked in the coop;
it was amuck with rats (think the
scene in the movie Ratatoulie when
the old lady shoots her ceiling to find
hundreds of rats up there).
That was it; I had only been getting
the odd rat with this green poison, so
I ordered online a red poison.
To date I have probably picked up
close to 50 rats.
They are in the woodstove, where
the week's catch goes up in smoke.
So if you have a rat problem, who
ya gonna call? Scruff and I are happy
to share the name of the poison.
One side note that I thought was a
little humorous was that this poison
was “safe for dogs and children”. I
wonder what parents would volunteer
a test child for that program?
Here’s to a rat-free fall, if you are
going past my place on a Saturday
night and wonder what’s cooking…

Suggestions for interacting
with the horses and hounds
• Maintain a 2-metre distance during the
parade.
• Approach horses and hounds from the
front and ask permission before petting an
animal.
• Join them for a blessing in the Gordon
Feed and Seed lot after the ride.
Hunt expands on a community tradition
The Horse, Hound and Harvest
Parade takes place in Creemore on
Thanksgiving, Saturday at 11 a.m.
The parade, which has become a
favourite annual event and a tourist
attraction, is expanding this year to
give spectators a prolonged look at the
hound dogs, horses and their riders.
The huntsman and whipper-in lead
the riders – men in red and the women
in black dress coats and all sporting the
blue collar of the Toronto and North
York Hunt – as they follow the hounds
on a route through the village.
The hunt, founded in 1843, is the
second oldest hunt in Canada. It
started in Toronto, on the shore of Lake
Ontario, as the Toronto Hunt but moved
northward to escape development.
The hunt’s stables are now located
south of Creemore where it employs a
full-time professional huntsman, whose
job it is to care for the pack of English
$
35
foxhounds, owned by the hunt.
The hunt rides twice per week
during the season. In the spring and
fall, members of the hunt head out on
parcels of land where they have gained
permission to ride, near Creemore,
Singhampton, Maxwell and Thornbury.
Riding to hounds is an English fox
hunting tradition. In England, riders
would meet in a small village with
their horses and hounds and go off to
hunt. It became so popular that people
formed hunts where the dogs would be
kept together in a kennel and cared for
by the huntsman and remains popular
with riders who want to get out into the
countryside.
The hunters do not carry weapons.
The hounds sniff out and kill their prey,
usually coyotes in these parts.
The parade starts and finishes at the
Gordon Feed & Seed lot in the centre
of town, directly across from Foodland.

Upon arrival at Four Wheel Farm I seek out owner Chuck Magwood.
Skydome builder turned wine maker, Magwood is driving a gator between
the sloping vines. The vehicle is loaded with bins of grapes, secured by his
passenger.
He tells me to hop on because he can’t stop to talk. There’s work to be done.
Back in the barn, the load is added to the inventory tallied on a large
CHERYL
MACLAURIN
chalkboard
along with other important data. Magwood then loads the grapes

Magwood then pulls out a shovel but not just any shovel – it’s the one used
in the official sod turning for the Skydome – and begins to stir the pulpy pile.

This is harvest
day,
Huron.
“It’s a time of celebration in the wine industry,” said Magwood.
In the French tradition, he invites friends and neighbours to spend the day
harvesting the grapes from the vines. It’s unpaid labour in exchange for a day
in a beautiful setting while chatting with new friends. In the field, about 40
people are working away, ready to be called in for lunch.
The day of the vendange is decided by the grapes. On Wednesday, the grapes

On the
Ranch
by Trina Berlo
One thing.
Billy Crystal’s character in the
movie City Slickers found his one
thing, the secret of life, at a ranch and
since then others have been looking
for it in the wilds of southern Ontario.
Carl Cosack said when that film
was released in 1991 it created a buzz
around ranch life.
“Maybe we grew up on too many
John Wayne movies,” said Carl. “We
always wanted to be a Western style
ranch, riding around the hillside trying
to be as close to an authentic cattle
ranch as you can in Ontario.”
The farm property was purchased
by Carl’s father Hans in 1964 when
he still lived in Germany.
“The threat of war and political
unrest drove my father to look for
something better,” said Carl.
He found a little piece of paradise in
Mulmur Township.
Standing tall in a plaid shirt and
jeans secured with an NDACT belt
buckle, cowboy hat and boots, Carl
looks the part of rancher.
Three generations of Cosacks have
worked the land of what is now a
working 1,200-acre cattle ranch and
tourist destination.
Carl Cosack visits with horses at Peace Valley Ranch.
The Weatherall family is a big part
of the history of the ranch, said Carl.
Morley Weatherall and his family
operated the farm as a corn crop, feedlot
and finishing beef cattle.
Carl left Germany in 1975. He was
16 and yearning for adventure so he
came to Canada to take advantage of
the family farm.
Carl said those were good times and
it was always rewarding to see when
Peace Valley Ranch had the highest
sales of the week in the farm reports.
The operation faced restructuring in
the late 1970s due to a downturn in the
farming economy and, ahead of their
time, the Cosacks went organic.
Hans Cosack moved to Canada in
1982 and still lives on an adjacent
property on the ranch. He just turned
90.
The 1980s were very challenging,
said Cosack. They were facing crazy
interest rates and a tornado devastated
the property in 1985. He said the
community had always been most
welcoming to the family and, even
though they were surrounded by
immigrants of many nationalities, they
never felt any discrimination for having

fought on the other side of the Second
World War. The whole neighbourhood
pitched in to help clean up and rebuild
after the tornado. Carl said 60 people
worked for four weeks to get the place
cleaned up.
Carl said by 1988 the farm was
certified organic and the following year,
Peace Valley Ranch found salvation in
the form of a purchase contract from
Miracle Food Mart. The grocery chain
purchased a line of premium beef,
which brought the farm back into
financial stability.
By 1996 Peace Valley Ranch
reinvented itself as a tourist destination.
“City Slickers made it popular to
go to a ranch and the phone hasn’t
stopped ringing since,” said Carl. “Now
we have 40 horses and we do all this
crazy stuff.”
Visitors can experience ranch life
through guided trail rides and a stay
in the family home, which operates as
a B&B.
Carl’s daughter Nikki continues to
work on the ranch focusing on natural
horsemanship, getting the horses ready
for riders. Carl’s wife Natalie Kotyck
is a trainer.
“Still to this day I consider Canada to
be the land of opportunity; if you want
to put in, it’ll give back,” said Carl. “We
are living the good life.”

Residents want pet waste, diapers added to green bin
More than 1,300 residents responded
to the County of Simcoe’s Green Bin
Survey, demonstrating strong interest
in organics and opportunity to grow the
program and increase Simcoe County’s
diversion rate. Survey results comprised of 100
door-to-door respondents and 1,291
online respondents.
The survey was completed between
June 22 and August 14. The purpose
of the survey was to determine what
residents see as motivators and barriers
in regards to participation in the
County’s green bin organics program.
Insights will also be considered as the
Solid Waste Management Strategy is
updated. Of the 100 door-to-door respondents,
60 per cent indicated that they use their
green bin regularly, with 15 per cent
using it sometimes and 25 per cent of
respondents indicating that they do not
use their green bin at all.
The online responses saw a higher
percentage of participation in the Green
Bin program, with 83.2 per cent of
respondents indicating that they use
their green bin regularly, 4.7 per cent
sometimes and 12.1 per cent not using
it at all.
The survey results indicate that
residents see room for growth by
expanding the types of materials
collected. When asked what changes
could be made to improve the use
of green bins, both online and doorto-door respondents indicated that
allowing pet waste/diapers would be
a motivator for increased use of their
green bin. Other motivating options
which may be considered by County
Council as part of the Solid Waste
Management Strategy update include
biweekly garbage collection, use of
clear garbage bags and pay as you
throw, where every bag of garbage
would require a garbage tag. “The results confirm that we’re taking
the right steps by investigating the
potential to operate our own Organics
Processing Facility in Simcoe County,”
said Warden Gerry Marshall. “Our
own facility would allow us to expand
the type of materials that we currently
accept, including the addition of pet
waste and in the long run diapers. This
could drive greater participation in
the program among our residents and
ultimately increase our diversion of
organics away from our landfills.”
The findings also confirmed that
there is an opportunity to increase
participation by identifying strategies
that encourage the use of green bins
during the warmer months of the
year. Some of the main barriers to
using a green bin which were noted
by respondents include: They don’t
use it because of the ‘yuck’ factor or
they can’t be bothered, the current one
garbage bag per week limit allows
for room to dispose of their organic
materials in the garbage instead or they
have a backyard composter.
“We have a number of green bin
tips on our website that address some
of these concerns and barriers. Also,
by adding materials that can’t go in a
backyard composter, we may encourage
greater participation year-round. I’m
excited about these findings and look
forward to working with all our partners
to identify strategies to grow our
organics program,” said Marshall.

green bin tips and information.

Pet owners can take advantage of
special rabies clinics across Simcoe

The clinics provide an inexpensive
way to get the rabies shots for dogs and
cats over three months old.
This year there are 36 clinics and 26
participating vets to make it easier to
attend. They run until Nov. 4.
“We’re really grateful to the
veterinarians who are giving their
time to these clinics,” said rabies
program coordinator Tanya Fehr with
the Simcoe Muskoka District Health
Unit. “Pet owners are required by law
to have their pets immunized against
rabies, and with the number of clinics
this year we hope to be able to build
significantly on the protection against
rabies across the region.”
The clinics provided vaccines to
more than 3,800 pets against rabies
last year.
Health unit staff investigated 1,097

Burton Somerville was committed to his community
by Trina Berlo
Burton Somerville was fully immersed
in his community.
He loved people and he liked to have
fun, said his wife Fran.
“He didn’t like to miss anything,”
she said, adding he liked to be informed
and got involved in whatever he could.
Burton had an interest in all things
political. He kept an eye on council and
sat on the committee of adjustment.
Fran said Burton was an innovative
farmer and in some ways was ahead
of his time. He once worked with the
University of Guelph on an agricultural
study, had an interest in alternative
energy and exposed dozens of young
people to farming through a summer
employment program.
Fran said urban youth enrolled in the
program lived with them at the farm
and learned about life in the country.
These youth had never had a home life
that involved regular meals as a family
at the kitchen table. She said in many
cases it was more like an adoption
program.
“We’ve been to all their weddings
and Christenings for their babies. We
have kept in touch with them all these
years, they were all great kids,” said
Fran.
One of them was a pallbearer at
Burton’s funeral last week.
“Burton’s church was very important
to him. He was baptized in the United
Church in Stayner where he was a
member for 81 years and he was on
every committee and taught Sunday
school to many of the young people
who came to the visitation,” said Fran.
He was a proud father, involved in
his son Wayne’s hockey and daughter
Nancy’s figure skating. Wayne played
for the Stayner Siskins and Nancy, who
died of ALS in 2005, was a gold-medal
skater.
Burton was also an athlete and a
sports fan. He played junior hockey
with the Stayner Royals and he was the
pitcher for the junior farmer baseball
team.
Burton and Fran raised their two
children on the family farm, just east
of Stayner.
Burton’s parents, with two sons and
a daughter, moved from a farm on
the 27/28 Sideroad to a new farm on
Highway 26 in 1952.
Fran said there was so little traffic on
the highway at the time that they drove
the cattle down the sideroad and down
County Road 7 to their new home.
“They just drove their herd right
down the road,” said Fran. “They called
the neighbours and said they would be
doing it at such and such a time and
they all went out and stood in their
laneways.”
Fran and Burton met through Junior
Farmers more than 60 years ago. Fran
(nee MacNicol) lived on a farm south
of Duntroon. They were both on the
executive and got to know each other
during monthly meetings.
They courted for almost three years
before marrying in 1957. They lived in
Stayner for a short time before building
a home on the Somerville family farm.
“I always say, we were like the
Newfies because we moved four times
Burton Somerville with one of
his antique Farmall tractors. His
collection of antique Farmall tractors
(right) was lined up at Waynan Dairy
Farms on the day of his funeral.
and never left the farm. We just kept
trading up houses,” said Fran.
Once their children were teenagers,
they moved to the main house.
“We started Waynan Dairy Farms in
1960,” said Fran. “We purchased the
farm next door and across the street
from Mr. Elvin Smith and he had the
same number of cows and the same
amount of dairy quota as he did.”
She said they bought the lot and
moved them to their farm and that was
the beginning of Waynan Dairy Farms.
She said when it came time to
name the operation they made several
submissions that were already taken.
It was Fran’s mother who suggested
Waynan, a hybrid of her children’s
names, Wayne and Nancy.
In addition to the dairy operation,
they sold beef cattle all over the world.
“That was big business before footand-mouth and all those weird diseases
came up and all the borders were shut
to Canada and that petered out,” said
Fran.
She said Burton was fully immersed
in the farm community, he always
showed cattle at the Royal winter fair,
the Ex and all the local fairs.
“He was big on fairs and big
on community, anything that was
community,” said Fran. “He helped
build the hall at Duntroon, he was on
the board of Sunnidale Corners hall for
10 years, he was chairman of the board.
Anything rural and anything exciting,
he was part of it.”

Doghouse and Home
by Trina Berlo
Fresh air, long walks in the country and
a beautiful view – if it sounds like the
perfect resort getaway and it is but it’s
not for the two-legged types.
At Club Amarillo it’s the quadrupeds
that are treated to a little rest and
relaxation.
From their kennels, the dogs are
watching a movie on the flat screen
television. The movie Cats and Dogs
(in which a pack of dogs work to stop
a group of cats from sabotaging the
development of a dog allergy vaccine)
proves to be a crowd favourite.
The Club Amarillo owner Dana
Mailhot said familiar sounds and
smells, like the television and pillows
and blankets from home, help the dogs
settle in and relax.
Most of the guests are at the club
because their owners are off on
vacations of their own. Knowing that
their dogs are happy helps their owners
enjoy their vacations.
Mailhot said she has a lot of city
dogs come stay at the club.
“We offer a real country experience
with fresh air and hand walking (on
a leash),” said Mailhot. “It’s a very
quiet, relaxed atmosphere and they get
to experience things they have never
experienced.”
The club’s amenities include heated
and air conditioned kennels with raised

orthopedic beds, including a family
condo for multiple dogs from one
family, an indoor bark park and an
outdoor off-leash run called Freedom
55 – aptly named for the number of
minutes each dog can run free – and a
track that is shared with the horses that
live and board at the Mulmur Township
farm.
Having grown up on a farm in St.
Jacob’s, Mailhot said she has always
enjoyed the company of dogs and
horses. She used to work as an exercise
rider for racehorses and travelled all
over the United States, conditioning
some of the best racers on the circuit.
Fifteen years ago, she and her husband
Mike bought the farm and named it
Club Amarillo with the goal of having a
homebase to work from so there would
be less travel as they started a family.
They named the farm after a tack shop
Mailhot owned in Glencairn, which she
operated five years previously.
When the slots were removed from
Woodbine, Mailhot said the race horse
industry was hit hard and there was
less work. As a way of supplementing
the farm’s income, Mailhot opened the
kennel and began boarding dogs.
She said it has been a great fit and
she now has many regular customers.

We all agree that the right words at the right time
are special.
Dan was not much of a drinker, however one night
he had consumed much too much alcohol and when he
arrived home made his way to the bedroom and slept.
In the morning two aspirins and a glass of water were
at his bedside, his clothes were cleaned and hanging
neatly, the house was spotlessly shining and a hot
breakfast was on the table beside a note from his wife
declaring her love for him and she had to go but had
prepared this lovely breakfast. Dan’s son came into
the kitchen and Dan asked what happened the night
before. His son said well dad you came home fell over
the coffee table and broke it, was sick in the hallway
and when mother tried to take you to the bedroom and
remove your clothes you said “hussy leave me alone
I am married”. Right words I’d say.

Going to a good home This 1959 Massey Ferguson #20 Swather
owned by the late Ken Davidson of Lavender is making its way to the Simcoe
County Museum. The swather is retiring after more than 55 years on the
job. Harold Davidson, of Lavender, has been its caretaker since his brother
died in 1998, and has continued to use the machine. He estimates it has
cut over 5,000 acres of crops over the years in Mulmur and Nottawasaga
(now Clearview) townships. The swather was manufactured by Kilberry
Industries from Winnipeg and purchased from George C. South Equipment
in Meaford.

Fire Prevention week
Hear the Beep Where you Sleep!
Fire Prevention Week is October 4-10, 2015. Clearview Fire &
Emergency Services is encouraging everyone to hear the beep where
you sleep and install a working smoke alarm in every bedroom.
“Many fatal fires occur at night when everyone is asleep, so early
warning is crucial to survival,” says Chief Colin Shewell. “The
Ontario Fire Code requires working smoke alarms on every storey
of the home and outside all sleeping areas. For added protection,
our fire department is recommending that you also install a smoke
alarm in every bedroom.”
The best protection will be provided by inter-connected smoke
alarms. The alarm closest to the fire will sense the smoke,
triggering all of the alarms throughout the home. For easy
installation, wireless interconnected smoke alarms are now
available.
Smoke alarms are required to be replaced within the time frame
indicated by the manufacturer. This is usually ten years. When
replacing interconnected smoke alarms, it is advisable to replace
all units in the system at the same time. If a single malfunctioning
alarm needs to be replaced, make sure the new alarm is
compatible with the existing units.
For more information about smoke alarms, visit www.clearview.ca
or OFMEM website at www.ontario.ca/firemarshal.
