  • The Wellington Advertiser - Culvert to cost 120% more than estimate
    She concluded both the diameter and length increases are warranted to provide a safe serviceable road cross culvert meeting current design and agency criteria But councillor Corey Woods took exception to the increases wondering why the culvert size was okay for the better part of two centuries but now has to be changed just because the GRCA says so Councillor Doug Breen acknowledged the culvert is very expensive noting that a decade ago the township built entire bridges for about the same amount However Breen noted the GRCA is simply enforcing rules imposed by the province He said he is not opposed to widening the culvert Mayor Chris White said he understands Woods concern especially considering the type of storm that prompted the move to a larger culvert would likely wash out the entire road let alone the culvert But that is the situation the township has been dealt White added Council unanimously approved a resolution awarding the culvert project to Taylor Wakefield General Contractors councillor John Scott was absent in the amount of 210 156 The cost overrun of 115 156 will be taken from the municipality s bridge replacement reserve leaving that reserve with a balance of 65 905 September 16 2011 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 Council rejects request to waive fees for event Council approves early sweeper purchase Stokley concerned with how costs will be covered Province gives 30

  • The Wellington Advertiser - Township residents appeal turbine ruling to environmental tribunal
    uninformed member of the public could incorrectly interpret this MOE backgrounder statement to mean wind turbine sound cannot harm human health He cited a previous tribunal hearing in Chatham Kent turbine opponents failed to stop that project and noted that ruling stated This case has successfully shown that the debate should not be simplified to one about whether wind turbines can cause harm to humans The evidence presented to the tribunal demonstrates that they can if the facilities are placed too close to residents The debate has now evolved to one of degree In Australia for example some government members are seeking a two kilometre setback from residences The current setback there is 1km while in Ontario the setback is 550 meters If the tribunal determines harm will be caused by the NextEra project the tribunal may revoke the director s decision instruct the director to take such action as the tribunal considers appropriate or alter the director s decision for which purpose the tribunal may substitute its own opinion Krul said Gillespie has hopes the coming hearing will prove more successful than the one in Chatham Kent Gillespie is busy fighting other cases too Krul said He s working on another one in southern Ontario He figures he s got a really good chance of winning Time will tell Gillespie s report was done for Wind Concerns Ontario This is very worrying said Wind Concerns Ontario president Jane Wilson a registered nurse They crafted that media release specifically to make this year old report look like the last word on the issue of health and turbine noise It s out of date and completely ignores the expert evidence from and conclusions of the Environmental Review Tribunal last year And it s yet another literature review This province has yet to officially connect with the real people experiencing real health effects out there If the tribunal determines that such harm will not be caused the tribunal shall confirm the director s decision An email from the tribunal announcing the hearing stated people were notified of the hearing because you are an owner of land near the approved renewable energy project or a person who may have an interest in this hearing It also states owners of nearby lands and interested parties may seek the opportunity to participate at that hearing They are not required to attend it but if they wish to be involved there are four ways to do that They are attend the hearing and observe the proceedings but not actively participate request the hearing panel to grant presenter status If granted the person will be able to provide testimony under oath or solemn affirmation on a given day at the hearing and be cross examined by all parties those interested may also file written material in addition to giving an oral presentation request participant status at the hearing If granted they can provide testimony at the hearing and be cross examined by all parties they may also

  • The Wellington Advertiser - Local authors research highlights family heritage in village of Limehouse
    foresee the future Newton s book of poetry was published in Hamilton in 1846 In it he talks about his journey to the new world and the decision to leave his wife and family behind despite experiencing the loss of a child his wife was carrying He was off to find them a better life It amazes me how great a writer he was given he was uneducated Sommerville said It was Newton s own words of hope written on New Year s Day in 1843 that inspires Sommerville today In short there is something in man that leads him ever to look forward and think of his present and past sufferings in his anticipations of a more favourable future Sommerville follows Newton s career from his early days as a school master He liked that job because he could continue to learn she said That desire to learn is a theme throughout the book I think the fact that he was deprived of an education he learned to read at church and that he was self taught this allowed him to become a master of other subjects Sommerville explained including the ability to read and write in French Unemployed upon arriving in Canada Newton made his way to Georgetown in search of mill work It was suggested he get a job as a teacher at a new log school just south of Acton the Glen Lawson School and he became the first teacher there in 1842 Sommerville said But Newton s interest was in the mills He entered a partnership to start a mill in St Anne s in Nelson Township then moved to Limehouse where be bought a saw mill and family farm I think it was so brave of him to come here Sommerville said He didn t have knowledge of farming and yet he had his ideas about it too He was a clever man In 1850 Newton built a water lime mill to provide cement for the new railway construction and followed that with a woolen mill in 1862 Despite having four sons Newton maintained control of his enterprises My feeling is that he was in charge of all these operations although he had four sons who worked with him but he owned everything until the day he died she explained He mentions at different times that he expected his family to respect him but I think it was because he was deprived and didn t have a father himself I think he was a good father He was very prosperous and ambitious Newton would become the first postmaster of Limehouse in 1857 and later became a Justice of the Peace In 1893 a few years after his death all of Newton s businesses and his family home were lost in a fire After two years of research with great support by local historian John MacDonald and her Toronto publisher Sommerville feels she has reclaimed important pieces of the history of Limehouse and her family
