  • The Wellington Advertiser - Love letter
    easy job I admire his parenting skills because he is fair but also firm with rules balanced with patience Love abounds in our house disguised with laughter And he is brilliant at keeping me calm supporting every insane word I write I realize he deserves to know Once upon a time I wished to fall in love with someone who didn t try to control my career or my dreams But I forget that when I take on too much the Carpenter s job is not to rescue me My choices are my own He never stands in my way but he s not a mind reader either How could he possibly know when to rescue me from myself Honestly if he tried I d resist I got what I wished for the freedom to be myself in a partnership that is worth everything I don t tell him that enough I know the value of words but I also know the man I married is a man of few words That doesn t mean he doesn t need to hear them though So on a random Wednesday morning before the sun rose on his job site hours from home I sent him a text message with four simple words Thank you for everything He rarely replies during the day but on this day my phone flashed with an instant response What did I do I d caught him off guard He was waiting for sarcasm The night before we hadn t spoken beyond daily pleasantries but he d made dinner washed dishes and managed the teenage backlash and delivered a cup of tea to my office so I could keep working He respects deadlines So I replied You come home You choose me You choose us And that is everything His response was succinct and perfect I like coming home He may never write a sonnet but the Carpenter nailed it That s all I needed to know That s everything Simple Sincere True love Vol 49 Issue 07 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 COLUMNISTS Barrie Hopkins Bruce Whitestone Kelly Waterhouse Recent Columns Bits and Pieces The Bailey Bridge Cold colder and coldest Frosty Friday January thaw Frosty Friday Silent and symbiotic Winter wonderland Double surprise Canada s Business Presumptuous Left out Negative trends Left out Responsibility Bad Omens A precarious economy Troubled economy Comment from Ottawa The new session The Reform Act Services for seniors Small businesses Anti terrorism bill is needed Terrorism Helping families Veterans Life wise Retirement Canadas scarcity of calamity Often we mirror our parents Putting up with put downs

  • The Wellington Advertiser - Science fiction unfolding
    on the table that really the police didn t need the media TV radio newspapers etc anymore because they had access to social media tools Instead of working with these media groups as they have for decades or in the case of print centuries emergency service people figured with Twitter and Facebook they could easily disseminate their message The implied message whether intended or not was these communicators would not need the inconvenience of being second guessed or asked questions This country s legal system relies heavily on the notion of innocent until proven guilty and civil rights Embracing those concepts it would be a rare day that a journalist worth their salt would be content running press releases or re tweeting verbatim news from a communications officer Journalists ask the next question or questions that make sense of the news More recently we were taken aback to see a budget story written by a county councillor and published as a front page news article in a local weekly newspaper It mimics the columns that most newspapers run as a way for members of parliament or councillors to communicate with citizens While we don t have an issue with the councillor involved per se there are ethical issues with this kind of news presentation It s not good but reflective of the times in which we live So if those in our industry are willing to overlook the most basic of journalism principles and stand idly by while government bodies get into the news business tough times lie ahead Regrettably it will be the public and our democracy that pay the price February 12 2016 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

  • The Wellington Advertiser - Centre Wellington Hydro one of five ‘energy champions’ in Ontario
    allows customers to view electrical usage review billing history and subscribe to eBilling Customers can view their usage monthly weekly daily and even hourly There is also the potential to receive emails if customers are using more electricity than they planned for While residential customers were able to shift some energy usage from prime to non prime times Dyce said they were able to reduce overall usage as well Dyce added commercial and industrial customers also took advantage of available programs The lighting retrofit program was a big one he said noting there were also some process driven savings for some businesses such as motor replacement or pumps Dyce said it was really our relationship with our customers that allowed us to meet these targets He said Centre Wellington had some favourable situations with some industrial customers in a great position timing wise to take advantage of these programs He specifically mentioned A O Smith and Jefferson Elora They really took the ball and ran with it Once they started to see the savings it was like a snowball effect as they started taking the ideas into other aspects of their business not just electricity such as energy savings which affect their bottom line in the gas bill LDCs are now in a second period of review from 2015 to 2020 Dyce said a great start to meeting new targets is Centre Wellington Township s decision to implement streetlight retrofits moving to LED lights Dyce said he considers all customers of Centre Wellington Hydro partners in achieving conservation targets from residential customers to businesses small and large and the township itself He anticipates new energy incentive programs will be launched in the near future Many of the next round of incentives will be similar to previous incentives with a few tweaks Dyce suggested You can t keep banging the same drum and expect people to sign up he said Hopefully we ll be able to reach some customers who were unable to take advantage of the previous incentives or reach customers who did take advantage of previous incentives and will be able to further reduce energy use Dyce added We want to work hard during this next period to help our customers save even more energy We know it is a mandate and a directive of the MOE but we worked hard at this because it directly affects our customers Dyce stressed We want to be good stewards but we also want our customers to realize savings Dyce agreed electrical bills will be going up as commodity prices go up The province makes no bones about it the price of electricity is going up Dyce said If we can help our customers mitigate that that is the way we perceive this whole venture He said Centre Wellington had operated at the 100 mark for demands but through conservation saved 1 64 megawatts of peak demand power 101 of target and a net cumulative energy savings of 7 81 gigawatt hours
