  • The Wellington Advertiser - County plowing match a hit with young and old
    Rife said with a smile Having farmed in Waterloo region for decades Rife seemed confident in asserting his 1957 Massey Ferguson 50 is one of the nicest tractors ever made But Howard Timbers of Aurora likes his 1951 Massey Harris 30 just fine and light heartedly expressed regret that one of his plans for the day was foiled by Rife I try to be the oldest participant every time but I never get it quipped the 79 year old But regardless both men seemed to be having a ball at the plowing match Just as long as it don t rain Rife said gazing skyward Unfortunately it did begin to spit shortly thereafter but its hard to imagine any amount of precipitation would dampen the spirits of competitors like Rife Results of the plowing match were unavailable by press time Check online at wellingtonadvertiser com for future updates Vol 42 Issue 35 Tweet Tell Us What You Think Login to submit a comment Comments appearing on this website are the opinion of the comment writer and do not represent the opinion of the Wellington Advertiser Comments that attack other individuals or are offensive unsubstantiated or otherwise inappropriate will be removed You must register or log in in order to post a comment For more information read our detailed Comment Policy and Guidelines Related Stories Carly Campbell Cooper did well in horse competition in Peru Heading to Hawaii Matt Ward aims to conquer Ironman World Championship Cox Creek Cellars Estate Winery A toast to the good life in Wellington County Kurtz Trucking is recognized for safety record Thatcher Farms All local food is all natural with the Thatchers Brian Kurtz Trucking Local family business enjoying success accolades From Thomas the Tank to Nscale empires Model trains continue to enthral Nestle Waters

  • The Wellington Advertiser - Change is needed
    spoken up for him I just don t understand why White didn t mention something Fellow councillor Reta Moyer was also alarmed at the actions or lack thereof taken by White and Sheppard According to Moyer Knapp had seven deaths in his family in 2007 including his mother whom he also visited several times in eastern Canada while she was ill I can t believe they have the audacity to penalize the man for burying his mother Moyer told The Wellington Advertiser at a recent council meeting I think it s disgusting She was referring to 400 that was deducted from Knapp s remuneration as a result of absences at three regular council meetings Moyer tried to express her frustration during the announcement portion of the Jan 21 meeting but White interjected telling her that was not the time for such complaints This is not going away she told the mayor White replied he was not suggesting it should and the matter would be dealt with at another time White was unavailable for comment on Tuesday Vol 41 Issue 08 Tweet Tell Us What You Think Login to submit a comment Comments appearing on this website are the opinion of the comment writer and do not represent the opinion of the Wellington Advertiser Comments that attack other individuals or are offensive unsubstantiated or otherwise inappropriate will be removed You must register or log in in order to post a comment For more information read our detailed Comment Policy and Guidelines Related Stories Carly Campbell Cooper did well in horse competition in Peru Heading to Hawaii Matt Ward aims to conquer Ironman World Championship Cox Creek Cellars Estate Winery A toast to the good life in Wellington County Kurtz Trucking is recognized for safety record Thatcher Farms All local food is

  • The Wellington Advertiser - Post-podium panic
    mony from clerk Janice Shep pard and deputy clerk Meag han Reid as well as conflicting testimony from Knapp and Moyer dismissed the case saying it should never have come to court After that Scott filed the suit against Moyer and Knapp although Moyer says the pair received a notice of intent well before the case against Scott going to trial Knapp had little comment about the defamation lawsuit but he did offer a prediction I feel confident Scott s not going to win Knapp said I know that Moyer did talk more to the Advertiser and ironically like Scott she was also upset with the Feb 8 Mercury article about the six figure lawsuit She said the article made it seem she initiated a move to use township insurance help cov er her defence thus costing taxpayers money I have already put out sev eral thousands of dollars to my own lawyer she said She explained she has been inform ed through her own lawyer that the township s insurance policy will cover everything except punitive damages But if anyone s to blame for that she said it is Scott be cause he knew filing the law suit could result in township money being used in the de fence He knowingly pro ceeded with a charge that goes against the township she said It s a disturbing thing that a councillor will initiate litiga tion under the umbrella of the municipality Moyer said she can forgive Scott for the March 19 incident but not for the lawsuit Mayor Chris White said blam ing Scott for the defa ma tion lawsuit makes little sense Scott did not instigate this thing White said adding Scott is just defending himself This whole thing stems from the original allegation of as sault Moyer said she would like to move forward with issues of council but it is hard when coun cillors are more commit ted to humiliating one an other than they are to working together She noted that meet ings are going ahead as plan ned but the stress level is high in the council chambers I have never seen such a dysfunctional group of people with so much animosity she said Moyer said she will not seek re election in two years In fact she explained she has considered quitting this term a few times and hinted on Monday night that may still be a possibility Knapp on the other hand said he was disillusioned about what exactly councillors can do and he will not run again because of that He added he is disappointed with the lack of respect shown to Moyer during the alleged altercation with Scott White said he has no real com ment about Knapp and Moyer not seeking re election That decision is up to each individual when the time com es White said As for moving forward White said council is working fine as proven by the recent passing of the 2008 budget by a

  • The Wellington Advertiser - Ice schedule conflicts taking place at Aberfoyle ice pad
    frustrating she said They are old enough that should know better They have to share Councillor Wayne Stokley has heard similar comments regarding older kids on the ice A number of parents were very upset and would not allow their kids to go on justifiably so because of the possible impact of a puck on their bodies Stokley added that luckily there was a free skate with no sticks following that session so the residents waited But it was unfortunate they had to wait it out Stokley stressed We re not just talking about teens but young adults who were not listening to direction from parents on the ice I m still concerned about the safety factor Councillor Susan Fielding has also talked to a number of local residents Near the end of a recent skate Fielding reported that three older girls came on the ice with hockey sticks and were told it was supposed to be skating time They did step off not happily and went to an Optimist Club member who told them the same thing Fielding said it seems to take someone to speak to the individuals directly to get results We ve all heard stories that some people don t take it very well At the same time she pointed to positive aspects of those skating times as well as Tim Hortons representatives handing out certificates for hot chocolate and the dressing rooms being opened to offer a space to warm up Council Ken Roth said a resident had called with a potential solution to the free skate with sticks issue He explained it is essentially a family skating time where families and players of equal calibre play against one another Apparently a similar setup is in place in Toronto and works like a charm Roth said And it s all run by the families All you need is a horn and a time clock He said that might eliminate the problem Roth noted the other thing he has heard is some individuals are bringing flood lights and plugging them in at the facility to play in the early morning hours They re bringing in their lights but using our hydro Some councillors said that move is pretty nervy Lever noted Creativity is alive and well Stokley wondered about the potential of security cameras Lever said the idea of some type of surveillance camera is something the township may want to pursue to provide a record of anything that happens And if people know someone is watching they tend to be better behaved he said January 13 2012 Tweet Tell Us What You Think Login to submit a comment Comments appearing on this website are the opinion of the comment writer and do not represent the opinion of the Wellington Advertiser Comments that attack other individuals or are offensive unsubstantiated or otherwise inappropriate will be removed You must register or log in in order to post a comment For more information read our detailed Comment Policy

  • The Wellington Advertiser - Proposal for shoulder paving on local highways may be impossible
    was also uncertain of the legalities of provincial roads But he did not see it being allowed on Highway 6 through Puslinch Lever suggested the request is more a regional issue and suggested Stokley contact Carling Township for more details He added that in Morriston there would be no room for one metre shoulders But even south of Morriston I m not really sure I d like to see bicycles on that stretch of road He suggested roads parallel to the highway would likely offer a safer alternative As a follow up he referred to a recent meeting regarding the Highway 401 reconstruction and concerns related to the width of the bridges Lever said there is a section of about three metres on the sides of a bridge that would not be used It is referred to as a safe area and not designated as bicycles or pedestrians but there is a substantial space between the roadway and the guardrail Lever said when he asked if the space would accommodate future lanes he was told the bridge would have to be redone to maintain that safe area He anticipated that safe area would provide a venue for pedestrians or bicyclists to cross the bridge January 13 2012 Tweet Tell Us What You Think Login to submit a comment Comments appearing on this website are the opinion of the comment writer and do not represent the opinion of the Wellington Advertiser Comments that attack other individuals or are offensive unsubstantiated or otherwise inappropriate will be removed You must register or log in in order to post a comment For more information read our detailed Comment Policy and Guidelines Related Stories Slower calendar sales could mean less funding for two local events Ice schedule conflicts taking place at Aberfoyle ice pad Proposal

  • The Wellington Advertiser - Council wants more information before deciding on pit infilling
    done prior to gravel extraction but from what I understand once they did the rehab in the area there was no standard or elevations taken again to determine where the groundwater was located There has been some change to groundwater in that area because of the weather Stokley said if there is the potential of fill coming in it is important councillors understand where the groundwater is located before proceeding Law did not have an immediate answer for him Lever said one of council s concerns is nobody had surveyed the property to see if the final site elevation was in fact what it was detailed to be within the rehabilitation site plan Someone will have to go in there to determine the elevations of the property Stokley asked if the property owners could make that happen Law believes it would be best to have the township s engineer Stan DenHoed of Harden Environmental do the investigation of the plans and elevations Law said she would make him aware of council s concern Lever added the elevations were only one of the site issues brought up in the past As for bringing in landfill Stokley agreed there was talk of using fill under Ministry of the Environment standards but there must be a means to ensure those standards are maintained I think we ve had these concerns and other areas have had these concerns he said There may be standards which have to be followed but who is responsible to make sure those standards are maintained and who would do the testing and monitoring to make sure the standards are followed He added There is still a grey area as far as I m concerned Law said with the application everything would need to be spelled out Law said that it appears MTE is taking on that responsibility But generally speaking each application must be taken on its own merits she said Stokley wonder if a peer review is needed Lever said council first needs to hear DenHoed s response to the MTE letter He said MTE is stating that DenHoed s concerns have been addressed but we haven t heard back as to whether that is the case or not Plus he added council does not know if additional concerns have cropped up in the meantime Lever anticipated the review of the application will result in further feedback from DenHoed The mayor had also contacted other municipalities to see what they had done in similar circumstances Those directions can be reviewed by the township consultants to draft a process that councillors feel will protect the residents and the land Law noted the application had not arrived until the day before Christmas so there had not been a lot of time for a thorough review for the Jan 4 meeting Lever said Last fall our direction to staff was that nothing could be issued without council s approval So it s coming back to us We re far from the
