against other entries from across Canada.
During the judging process, judges critique each
entry for originality, expression, presentation, grammar
and spelling.

This past weekend, harvest was in full swing in our region. While most crops are being harvested
with modern farm machinery such as the John Deere equipment pictured below, some also
chose to take the crop off the old-fashioned way, pictured above. The methods of farming
have certainly changed over the decades.
According to the latest weekly Manitoba Crop Report, spring cereal harvest ranges from
50% to 90% complete with average to above average yields. Canola swathing is pretty much
complete in the southwest region while soybean crops continue to advance.

Change Your Thinking!


Change Your Eating!

Boys In The Sand


By TORI FISHER

SUBMITTED

o you want to feel


more in control of
your eating? Are there
times when you struggle
to maintain healthy eating
habits? Vivian Marks of
Brandon knows all about
feeling tempted when it
comes to food. She was
concerned about her
health and wanted to live
a healthier lifestyle. She
knew in order to do that
she had to first gain control of her eating habits,
and that is why she signed
up for the Craving Change
program. I heard about
the program through my
Prairie Mountain Health
dietitian, she thought it
might be helpful to participate in this type of program, I felt this was a good
place to start, says Vivian.
This Canadian-based
program was developed by
a Registered Dietitian and
Psychologist. It explores
why we eat the way we do
and provides ways to develop a healthier relationship with food. Craving
Change is led by healthcare providers such as a
dietitian, social worker,
nurse or psychologist
and who have a Craving
Change licence. Rosanne
Lesage, a Registered Dietitian for Prairie Mountain
Health, is licensed to facilitate Craving Change.
Participants of the Craving Change Program often
feel a sense of relief as they
realize they are not alone
in their eating struggles
and that difficulty with
change is not simply due to
a lack of willpower. Participants of this program become more aware of some

Friday, September 18, 2015

of their personal eating


triggers and why it is been
so hard to change them,
says Lesage. She adds,
They will also learn strategies to change their way of
thinking, overcome some
of their barriers, and ultimately develop a healthy
relationship with food.
Vivian
says
she
learned some new tips
when it comes to controlling her temptations, as
well she never knew there
were different types hunger and how to recognize
and deal with them. Vivian Marks completed the
Craving Change program
in Brandon and says, It
has opened my eyes to my
unhealthy eating habits. It
has made me more aware
of how to change, said
Marks. She knows this will
be a lifelong journey but
feels the tools she learned
in class will help her stay
on track.
Craving Change includes hands-on learning in a group setting. A
workbook that contains
activity worksheets is also
available at no charge to
participants. During the
sessions, participants are
given an opportunity to
both self-reflect and to
share personal experiences with others. The class
is usually three evenings a
week for a couple of hours.
Craving Change is
offered in different communities within Prairie
Mountain Health in the
fall, winter and spring.
The free program is available to adults 18 years and
older. For more information please see the ad elsewhere in this edition.

curtain shifts as the bus makes a turn, allowing a


shaft of bright sun to attack my face and render
me blind. Tears build in my eyes as I squint into the
glare but I make no move to wipe them away. Its useless, I think, to bother when I know that these tears
will be only some of the many shed today.
Its June 5th, 2014, I am travelling to Juno beach,
location of the infamous D-Day landings. 70 years ago
today, thousands of Canadian men, some barely older
than myself, journeyed to the same place. However,
the difference between those soldiers and I is that
I know I will return home. On June 6th, 1944, some
14,000 men (and boys) from our country stormed the
beaches of France in an attempt to end Hitlers reign
of terror. Under such circumstances, who would have
thought that today I would shed tears of joy.
The bus makes a final turn, and Im roused from
my thoughts by the rumbling of tires on gravel. My feet
meet dusty ground and my feelings are mixed as I walk
the path leading to the museum. Soft puffs of cloud
dapple the azure sky, allowing light to sparkle off the
ocean and highlight the soft hues of wildflowers peeking from the tall grass. Full of Frances lush beauty, its
hard to imagine this place as deadly battlefield.
The Juno Beach Centre appears in from of us, a
contrasting collage of modern and historic times. The
museum sits, accompanied by a proudly waving Canadian flag. An equally grand French flay flies by its
side. Hundreds of plaques adorn giant concrete pillars, thanking those that sponsored the centre. It is
heart-warming to see such teamwork, but I bitterly
wish that there were no reason to build this place, no
Canadian deaths to mourn.
It is when we approach the grassy outcrop overlooking the beach that hints of war begin to show. The
entrances to German bunkers gape like open mouths
in the sand. Around them sit huge cement pyramids
that used to hold back tanks. The sand is pale and soft
beneath my feet, but I grimly wonder how much blood
left it clumped and stained in the past. Why must we
fight such brutal wars? As my eyes comb the strange

marks inside the bunker, I suddenly feel sick. I avert


my eyes and hurry back to the surface.
I continue to the beach. The sand becomes thicker under my feet as the grass thins, and attracts my
gaze as I stop to think. I try to imagine what this place
must have looked like in the midst of war. I picture
boat after boat closing in on the shore, then soldier
after soldier spring for cover on the wet sand. I think
of the rattle of gunfire and the scars left by tanks in the
earth, the smell of smoke and the sounds of screams
carried on the wind. It is hard to imagine though, for I
have never known war.
Im finishing this thought as a sharp cry sounds behind me. Its high pitch is that of a young child. I turn in
time to see them tumble onto the beach, two French
boys, no more than four years old. Their father trails behind, watching affectionately as they laugh and roll in
the sand.
At first I feel a prick of anger, who lets their child
yell and wrestle on such hallowed ground? As I watch,
however, I remember that theyre still young. Fouryears-olds arent expected to understand war.
Suddenly Im hit with a wave of thankfulness.
There was a time not so long ago that a four-year-old
boy would be expected to understand war: a time when
worldwide fighting wasnt a chapter in a history book
but a way of life. Those boys and I have a lot in common. We both grew up in such a peaceful environment
that we dont know the horrors of battle. I can read
about it in books, but I didnt experience the death and
oppression firsthand. Those thousands of men died for
the future, the idea that their children could grow up
the way I am now.
A bittersweet tear builds in my eye when I think of
this. I grieve for those that came before me and gave
everything 70 years ago on the hope that they could
make things better, but I also feel joy and gratefulness.
They dedicated themselves fully to the battle against
oppression and they succeeded. They succeeded for
the future, and for me. I only hope that if my time
comes to take a stand that I can do it too, for those like
the boys in the sand.

The Minnedosa Tribune

Fifty Years Later and the Pain Never Truly Goes Away
By PHILIP TOWNSEND

here was a stranger in town on September 11th,


2015. More accurately, I was not a stranger, but a
former resident of the Town of Minnedosa and a periodic visitor to the place where I lived from 1954 to
1966. My name is Philip Earle Townsend. I am the eldest son of George and Irene Townsend who lived in
Minnedosa from 1952 to 1966 along with their other
two sons, John and Mark. My father was a Supervisor
with Canadian Pacific Railway and my mother was a
homemaker for our family. They were both very involved in the community. I feel very blessed to have
had the opportunity to live some of my formative years
in a small town with all the advantages and special
things that are part of rural life in Manitoba. In July of
2000, my family and I moved from Winnipeg to Newmarket, Ontario when I became a Partner with PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (PwC).
My return to Winnipeg and then to Minnedosa on
September 11th, was to fulfill a promise that I made
to myself. The promise was to visit the grave of my
cousin Catherine Cathy Ellen Cameron at Brookside
Cemetery in Winnipeg and to visit the piece of ground
in Minnedosa where she lay dying on the evening of
September 11th, 1965 at around 8:00 p.m. Unlike this
year, September 11th in 1965 was a Saturday. It was
part of the weekend when my Uncle Jack and his wife
Arlene, my god-parents, and their four children came
to Minnedosa for one of their regular visits. Cathy and
I were more like brother and sister than cousins and
we truly adored each other. Cathy was from the big
city and she loved to come to Minnedosa to explore
with her cousins. We lived in a small house at the top
of 3rd Avenue. The house was not large enough to accommodate everyone, so the Camerons would pitch
their tent beside the garage.
Cathy loved to visit Minnedosa Lake and to see the
fl ood lights shining on the water as it roared over the
spillway at the dam. She and I had made the trek there
many times on previous visits and that evening we went
again. It was a beautiful evening, warm and calm. My
father and uncle had gone to Riding Mountain National
Park to go golfing for the day. My mother and aunt were
at home looking after the two families. They were sitting
in the kitchen talking over a cup of coffee while Cathy
and I went to the lake. They loved to talk.
Cathy and I asked if we could take a ride out to
the dam to see the lights and the answer was yes. We
headed off on my new bicycle, equipped with a passenger seat, rear light, front light and reflectors on the
wheels. We headed out to the dam around 7 p.m. and
promised to be back by 8:30 p.m. We had a good visit
and explored the dam and started to head back around
8:00 p.m. I was a good bike driver and Cathy was
seated on the passenger seat behind me. We headed
back towards home and as we approached the bend
in the road at the junction of the road that leads to the
Minnedosa Cemetery, I saw a car speeding towards us.
It was a two-tone, Ford Meteor. I had moved us as close
to the edge of the road as I could, but it made no difference. As we rounded the bend, the car sped beside us
with two young male occupants inside. Moments later,

Photo submitted

I could feel and hear the rear tire on my bike rubbing


against the fender. I looked behind me to realize with
horror that Cathy was no longer seated behind me. She
was gone. I stopped and put down my bike and started
to look for Cathy on the road and then in the ditches
on both sides of the road, but I could not find her for
what seemed like an eternity. The car had continued
down the road towards the lake. Later, it was confirmed
that the two occupants had continued driving in order
to find a place to ditch the liquor that was in their car.
Before the two young males returned, I found Cathy
lying face down in the ditch on the north side of the
road in the tall grass under the illumination of the street
lamp. She was unconscious, coughing up blood from
her mouth with her left leg nearly severed at the hip. I
started to panic but regained some composure just as
the two young men returned. They were both clearly
intoxicated and incoherent. I could smell liquor on
their breath. I knew that Cathy needed medical attention so I trusted my instincts and told them to stay
there while I started to run as fast as I could back to my
house. I could see it easily from where we were and I
knew that my mother and aunt would know what to do.
I was 11 years old.
I burst into the kitchen and blurted out what had
happened. I can still remember the look of fear and
fright on their faces. We all ran out the door to see the
fl ashing lights of the police car and ambulance converging at the corner where Cathy lay. To be honest, the
rest of that evening is a blur for me, except that I can remember my father and uncle coming back from golfing
to hear what had happened. I can remember a neighbour coming to look after the children while the adults
rushed to the Minnedosa Hospital. I can remember my
mother and father telling me that Cathy was in critical
condition and that she would be rushed to Winnipeg by
ambulance that evening. I can remember the Cameron
family frantically packing up so they could follow the
ambulance into Winnipeg. I can remember being put
to bed along with my brothers while my parents packed

up so that we could travel to Winnipeg the next morning. I can remember crying so hard and praying to God
that Cathy would be saved and that she would be okay.
Eventually, I was exhausted and fell into a deep sleep.
I awoke in the morning to have my mother tell me
that Cathy had died in the ambulance just west of Gladstone. That morning we drove into Winnipeg to be with
family and to attend Cathys funeral. Years later, I was
told by my father that Cathys body had been returned
to Minnedosa for the autopsy. My father was the family member who was asked to confirm that it was in fact
Cathy lying on a table in the morgue. The Camerons
never came to visit us in Minnedosa again.
While its been 50 years, I can still remember vividly
every single detail about that night. I can remember the
sounds and the smells as if it was yesterday. I can play
backwards and forwards and pause in slow motion what
happened as if it is playing in technicolour in my mind.
I think about my cousin Cathy all the time. I wonder
what she would have done with her life. I wonder how
it was that I did not receive a scratch from the collision.
I refuse to refer to it as an accident. The young 21-year
-old man from Minnedosa knew what he was doing and
had been charged previously with impaired driving. I
know his name, but it serves no purpose to mention it
here. I have always wondered if he truly understood all
the pain and trauma that he caused Cathy and her family who loved her dearly.
The trauma did not stop for me after the funeral.
The following summer, I was called upon by the Crown
Prosecutor to give testimony at the court proceedings
that were held at the Minnedosa Court House. I visited
the court room today (September 11th, 2015), the first
time in nearly 50 years. In 1966, my father and mother
would pick me up at school and go with me to the court
house. The whole court process was a scary experience
for a now 12-yearold boy. I can remember staring in
the court room at this person whom I had come to hate.
At the conclusion of the trial he was convicted of Vehicular Manslaughter, sentenced to just less than three
years in the Brandon jail and prohibited from driving for
many years. I can remember the errors in The Brandon
Sun that initially resulted in Cathys and my name being
spelled incorrectly. I can remember being angry at the
error that was eventually corrected in future reporting
articles about the trial proceedings.
I came back to Minnedosa to mark the anniversary
of this tragic, sad event as a promise that I made to myself and Cathy. September 11th is a sad day for many
as we all know. It is also a happy day for our family that
marks the birthday of my brother Johns eldest daughter, Tamara. She is a beautiful young woman now with
her own family and she gives us a reason to celebrate
the day. Nevertheless, I wonder if people really think
about what they are doing the minute they get behind
the wheel of a car when they have been drinking, or
when they hijack a plane into a building or when they
pull the trigger of a gun. If they could see the trail of
pain and devastation, maybe they would think twice
about their actions and choices, but for Cathy and her
family, its too late. All I can do now is remember her
gentle nature and her beautiful smile and try to bear
witness to what took her away.

ts been a few weeks


since I wrote the last article.
Holidays coupled
with some busy weeks
hasnt allowed me to write.
Without stating the obvious I am still working in
the Yellowhead Area. I will
be continuing to work here
until the new commander
arrives. That date is still
unknown. I continue to
enjoy working in this area
and am looking forward
to one more meeting with
our councils in the coming weeks. I try to meet
with them at least twice a
year to discuss our policing priorities and how our
plans are progressing as
we reach the middle of our
planning year.
When the harvesting
starts it usually marks the
beginning of the school
year as well. This brings
me to one of the topics for
this week; school zones.
The province, a couple of
years ago, legislated the
authority for each municipal governing body
to set the speeds around
school zones.
While
some school zones have
dropped to 30 KPH, some

have remained at 50 KPH.


There are compelling reasons for some zones to
reduce speeds and others
not. Regardless of what
the speed zones are, it is a
time of year that motorist
need to pay close attention while in and around
those zones. There are
more pedestrians during
the morning and afternoon rush. This, as well
as the students excited in
returning to school, may
not be paying attention
to vehicles while crossing
the streets. According to
MPI, nearly 30% of pedestrians struck by vehicles
are fi ve to nineteen years
old. Please slow down and
pay extra attention.
Another reminder for
everyone is to remove the
keys and any valuables
from your vehicle. We
have had a recent rash of
vehicle thefts and items
stolen from vehicles. I
was rather amazed at how
many vehicles had the keys
left in them. Police are
asking you to remove your
keys, lock your vehicle and
remove any items of value.
Since I havent reported

on our fi les for a while I


will highlight the past two
weeks of calls for service.
We had 107 calls for service in the past two weeks.
We have responded to four
assaults and other calls of
mischief and thefts.
Of note were the rash of
vehicle thefts in Strathclair
during the early morning of September 14th.
We have suspects in these
thefts and are continuing
our investigation. If anyone has any information
regarding the thefts of vehicles or thefts from vehicles in Strathclair or if you
saw anything suspicious
during the early morning

hours of September 14th in


Strathclairplease contact
our office.
Not during this reporting period but just prior, we
investigated and charged
three persons for impaired
driving within a four mile
stretch of highway near
Beulah. When they say
things come in three they
werent kidding!
There
were a total of 15 speeding
tickets issued during this
time. The speeder of the
week goes to a 41-year-old
female from Winnipegosis
who was fi ned $521.75 for
going 36 kilometres over
the speed limit.

The Minnedosa Mill is once more running,


steam having been started and grain purchased. It is
hoped that its days of trials are ended and that the business may be ever growing. It is a great factor in the prosperity of this town.

1915 Many of the large stones which were protruding on Main Street, and were a menace to the wheels of
vehicles, were removed last week. But, there are more.
A crusher would reduce the stones to a proper size and
make good material for road surfacing.

the Chamber of Commerce this week. This now puts the
total near the $6,000 mark, half way to the objective of
$12,000. The building committee has made good progress and to date all material and labour has been paid for.
The building should be completed before winter.

Is Word of Mouth Killing Your Business?


Living in
Paradise
By

VERN MAY

EDO, Minnedosa & Area CDC

any merchants will


agree that word of
mouth advertising is a key
element of their success.
Each great customer experience opens the door for
your shoppers to become
your strongest ambassadors. Now, combined
with the speed and reach
of social media, network
marketing is considered
to be more important than

ever before.
But as fast as good
news travels, the bad has
a proven track record of
outpacing it. By the time
youre even aware of the
problem, the damning review may have gone viral.
On one hand, you may
have a very visible platform to showcase your
problem solving skills
with a response like this:

*We accept Visa, Master C


Card
d&d
debit
bi card
d purchases
h
*We deliver within town limits Mon - Sat at 4:00 p.m
($2 charge - $10 minimum order)
*Seniors Discount every Friday (65 & up)

We were disappointed to
hear of the negative experience you had at our store
recently. We are always
looking for opportunities
to improve and we wish
that youd allowed us the
chance to remedy this issue. We welcome you to
see us and discuss how we
can make this right. (Insert
your pro-active customer
service slogan here).
The bigger challenge
is the reviews you dont
know about shared by
folks in your own community.
How damaging is it to your business
when your own town has
lost faith in you? How do
you restore those relationships?

Th ese are more diffi cult because its almost


as though people that you
personally know have insulted you and it can be
challenging to get past
that personal off ense. It
can especially sting when
the dismissive voice in the
community has not been
a customer to ever pass
through your door. What
are they basing their review on?
Consider this: Someone rolls into town and
asks the fi rst person they
see on the street: Hey,
wheres a good place in
town to fi nd [your service]? Are you confident
that the locals are going
to give you the nod and

a glowing endorsement?
Will they dissuade customers from your doorstep? Will you be eliminated by simple omission?
Is it possible that a local
person would refer the
traveler out of town entirely rather than to give
you the referral? It only
takes a moment of hesitation to speak volumes to a
potential buyer.
As a community, its
important that we collectively tackle this breakdown. As business owners, we have to take action
to rally community support and local awareness
of our shops and services
to ensure their endorsement when we need it.

Sale Dates:

SEPTEMBER 18TH - SEPTEMBER 24TH

(STARTS FRIDAY9:00 A.M. - ENDS THURSDAY 9:00 P.M.)

GROCERY

Equally important, we
need to get the word out
about any action being
taken to share our time
and investment in improving our businesses through
every channel possible.
We can start by fi
nding
out what incidents or local myths from the rumour
mill are detracting from
the publics comfort with
your business. Lets address and dispel the myths,
fi ll in the blanks on the
half-truths and open lines
of communication for the
better.
Community requires
unity. Lets work on ensuring that every word
spoken locally about your
business is a good one.

Bringing In The Sheaves The Old Fashioned Way


By DARRYL HOLYK

he Old Iron Club at


Strathclair hosted its
annual threshing demonstration last weekend.
On Saturday and Sunday,
a dedicated group of volunteers harvested a crop
of oats across from the
former Strathclair Auction
Mart. The demonstration
was not your typical modern day harvest but showcased how crops of days

gone by were taken off the


field.
Last weekends demonstration did not feature
any air conditioned, GPS
autosteer equipment used
by todays generation of
farmers but instead featured farm implements
of a bygone area tractors which would be considered small by todays
standards, reaper-binders, separator-threshing
machines, wooden grain

wagons, hay racks and


even a team of real live,
four-legged horsepower.
Saturdays
demonstration began by cutting
the crop using two sets
of equipment; a Fordson Major Tractor with a
John Deere binder and a
International Harvester
Farmall Tractor and I.H.
Binder. The men, armed
with pitchforks, picked
up the sheaves left by the
binder and loaded them
onto one of three hay
racks. One was pulled by a
team of horses, one by an
Oliver Standard 77 tractor
and the third by a Massey
Harris Senior 102 tractor.
Traditionally, these
sheaves would have been
stooked and left to dry before threshing, but due to
time restraints, this step
was removed from the
process. After lunch, the
tractors roared as they
powered the separatorthreshing units. The fi rst
separator, a John Deere
model, was powered by
a 1938 John Deere D-JD

tractor. The second separator, a 1921 Avery model,
was powered by a 1953
John Deere R tractor.
Joy and excitement
was visible on the faces of
many of the older spectators in the crowd as memories of their youth and
farming days came flooding back. The rhythmic
bang-clang of the old machines partnered with the
chug of the tractors mixed
with the sweat of the men
and ladies on the hay rack
pitching sheaves into the
threshing units resulted in
grain filling two old wooden wagons.
In addition to the
threshing
demonstrations, there was a food
booth on site for dinner
in the field and an opportunity to purchase Iron
Club merchandise and
raffl e tickets. A few other
pieces of old equipment
were on display including a restored 3.5 Horse-

weekend. The club currently has 26 members
who share a love for machinery from yesteryear.

are always welcome in
hopes that traditions,
such as old fashioned
threshing
demonstrations will continue for

Peddling Along On The Big Bike


By DARRYL HOLYK

familiar sight returned to the streets


of Minnedosa Tuesday
evening as 29 local participants braved the fog and
drizzle to peddle hard for
Heart and Stroke.
The Big Bike Ride is a
fun, high energy event that
took participants from the
Community Confenrence
Centre, south on Main
Street, past the Personal
Care Home and back to the

Conference Centre.
Participants raise
money to support Heart
and Stroke research and
treatment. Tuesdays local ride raised just over
$3,100 which is in line what
Minendosa has rasied over
the past fi ve years of the
ride. Last year, Canadians
raised over $8 million.
Statistics show that every seven minutes, a Canadian looses his or her life to
heart disease or stroke.

Canola Camp Visits Newdale Farm


By DARRYL HOLYK

or the fourth year in a


row, Manitoba Canola Growers Association
(MCGA) invited a group of
people involved with the
Canadian food industry to
get a closer look at where
our countrys food actually
comes from. From September 11th to 13th, ten foodies participated in the
Canola Connect Harvest
Camp which took them to
various farms for an opportunity to meet the producers and learn how the
ingredients used in many
Canadian kitchens are
raised.
During the 2015 edition of the camp, participants visited grain, beef,
bison, honey, fruit and
vegetable farms in rural
Manitoba taking them on
an educational hands-on
journey from Winnipeg to
Russell and back again.
Participants in this
years camp included Michael Allemeir, a chef
and culinary educator at
SAIT in Calgary, AB; Sean

Beckingham and Marian


Staresinik co-owners of a
social marketing agency
in Toronto, ON; Amy Bronee, a blogger, author and
culinary instructor from
Victoria, BC; Zannat Reza,
a television and radio host,
producer and writer who
runs her own food and nutrition
communications
business from Toronto, ON;
Nita Sharda, a registered dietitian and owner of a Balanced Nutrition Consulting
fi rm from Winnipeg, MB,
Ashley Fehr, a teacher and
blogger from Austin, MB,
Trina Gallop Blank, a communications director of a
non-profi t from Winnipeg,
MB, Pooja Mansukhani, a
registered dietitian from
Toronto, ON and Matt Dean
Pettit, a chef and food company owner from Toronto,
ON.
Th e groups second
stop, last Friday, was near
Newdale where they visited Dalgarnos Pen-dale
Farms Ltd. Here, camp
participants enjoyed a barbeque rib and chicken supper served in the shop and

learned the ins and outs


of a family run grain farm.
It also served as an opportunity for them to ask
those tough questions they
may have had to dispel the
misinformation they may
have heard or read about
agriculture, especially the
ongoing hot-button topic
of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO).
Bruce Dalgarno explained to the campers the
many improvements that
have been made in farming over the years. He gave
a demonstration showing
the improvements made
in the farming process in
just the last ten years and
how todays methods are
much more environmentally friendly than in the
past. Advances in agriculture, based on scientific
research, continue to improve agriculture in North
America. These advancements are better for the
land and environment,
better for the producer and
most importantly, better
for the consumer to keep
our nation fed with healthy

farm-grown ingredients.
Camp participants had
an opportunity to learn
about some of the farm
equipment required to operate a successful grain operation. They learned about
function, size, cost and
lifespan of machinery and
were able to view a swather

and sprayer up close. They


were also able to see the
size of one acre and what a
small amount of chemical
is actually used, which was
a real eye-opener to some
of the campers.
Following their stop at
Newdale, the Canola Connect Campers boarded the

bus and headed off to their


evening accommodation at
the Barn in the Bush near
Russell. The tour continued
throughout the weekend
with more exciting agriculture adventures and learning opportunities.

Dear Reena,
My wife and I completed some home renos
that overall went well, but
we do have a minor problem. We had a new fireplace installed but did not
remove the protective film
that covers the chrome

the fireplace before all the
renos were complete. Apparently the heat from the
testing cooked some of the
glue used on the protective film to the chrome on

remove the smudges and
get the new fireplace to

commercial
cleaning
products to avoid hurting
your warranty. If this is not
an option: Clean with Windex, to avoid scratches use
a very, very soft cloth when
cleaning the chrome; the
ammonia will help the
frame gleam. Olive oil,
rubbing alcohol and WD40 are other options (test
on an inconspicuous area
first).
Dear Reena,
At this time of year,
there is usually an infestation of little fruit flies in the
kitchen especially when
fruit is on the counter. How
do we get rid of them? Lil

Dear Lil,
Eliminate
exposed
food sources such as
bread, fruit, potatoes and
crumbs. Wash dishes regularly and empty garbages,
take out compost bucket,
clean drains and garburators. Hang dish clothes instead of allowing them to
sit in a damp pile; this is a
perfect breeding area for
fl ies. Plant soil is another
breeding area for fruit flies
therefore it is important
to wait until necessary to
carry plants inside for the
winter.
Purchase a restaurant
style, funnel cap vinegar
dispenser. Fill with wine or
vinegar. Cap and set near
the kitchen sink. Fruit flies
are attracted to the smell
of fermenting fruit. Some
people like to take this

one step further and place


the dispenser onto a cardboard, glue board.
Extra Tip: Storing
bananas during fruit fly
season is easier then you
may think. At this time of
the year; store fruit in the
fridge. Separate bananas
and wrap them individually inside place bags such
as the bulk vegetables
bag. Place all individually
wrapped banana bags inside one plastic grocery
bag. Th e bananas wont
turn brown for several
days; and they stay fresh
longer than if left on the
counter.
Re: Bettys sinking
bread update:
I wrote you some time
ago about my Fergasa
Bread falling after mak-

ing it for quite some time.


Since then, I contacted the
grocery store in my area
and talked to the Baking
Supervisor.I explained
my situation and she told
me that it sounded like I
wasnt baking the bread
long enough.I took a sample of the Fergasa bread to
her the next day because I
had just taken three loaves
out of the oven.
She took one look at
the bread and told me
that I wasnt baking it long
enough. She suggested
raising the temperature
from 350 degrees F to 360
degrees F and baking it for
a little longer so that it is
quite brown and not just
a light golden color. She
told me that they use a 370
degree oven. She also suggested instead of making

three large loaves to make


smaller loaves.I did this
on my next batch and it
worked! Next time I will go
back to the three loaves but
bake them at the higher
temperature and for a little
longer. Th e three loaves
gives me a much higher
loaf. Thought you would

Handy Tip of the Week
Save time when peeling potatoes. Boil water in
a large pot. While water is
heating; score each potato
skin around the width of
each potato. Boil potatoes
for 15 minutes. Place potatoes in ice water. When
cool enough to touch; pull
off potato skins. Prepare as
normal.
