consider myself to be a pretty lucky person. In my role
as the main writer for The Vision Paper, I get to meet a
lot of wonderful people of all ages from all walks of
My responsibilities as the marketing director of the
Hanmer Valley Shopping Centre also afford me many
opportunities to encounter local residents who are
actively involved with the churches, sports
organizations and service groups.
However, perhaps because of the 28 years I
spent as a classroom teacher, I always enjoy getting
into the schools where I can talk to young boys and
girls who have so many questions about the exciting, yet
unpredictable future that lies ahead of them.
One boy I met recently spoke about how he
felt about living in
is such a terrible place to grow up. I can’t wait to
move away from this dump and live in
Everything is big and modern down there. Life must be
wonderful in the big city.
I sat down with the young lad and told him
that I understood how he felt. “What
you are feeling is quite normal. Even adults often think
that things would be better in other circumstances. We
are always looking for better jobs, better houses,
better places to vacation, etc. A lot of people think
is a dump, and not a place where they want to spend the
rest of their life.”
I then told him a little story called,
“The Golden Windows”.
There was once a young boy living on a farm
which seemed like it was so far away from everywhere. He
needed to get up before sunrise every morning to start
his chores and then go out again later to do the evening
ones. During sunrise he would take a break and climb up
on the fence so in the distance he could see the house
with golden windows. He thought how great it would be to
live there and his mind would wander to imagine the
modern equipment and appliances that might exist in the
"If they can afford golden windows,
then they must have other nice things too." He
promised himself that some day he would go there and see
this wonderful place for himself.
Then one morning his father told him to
stay home and his father would do the chores. Knowing
that this was his chance, he packed a sandwich and
headed across the field towards the house with the
As the afternoon went on, he began to
realize how he misjudged the distance, but something
else was also very wrong. As he approached the house, he
saw no golden windows, but instead a place with a broken
down fence. He went to the tattered screen door and
knocked. A boy very close to his own age opened the
He asked him if he has seen the house with
the golden windows. The boy said, "Sure, I
know." and invited him to sit on the porch. As he
sat there, he looked back from where he just came where
the sunset turned the windows on his own home to Gold.
And so, I said to the young boy I was
speaking to that day, and I say to all of my readers,
regardless of your age or personal circumstance, what
appears in life to be "golden" is sometimes
just an illusion. You may not realize it, but there are
a lot of things about living in the
in particular, that people in other places would love.
To them, you are the lucky ones. You have everything
they are looking for - all you have to do is look at
things the right way.
In the story, the first boy saw the sun
reflecting on the distant windows each morning. To him,
that was the place where all the riches lie. To the
other boy, who saw the sun reflecting on the first
boy’s windows as the sun set in the evening that was
where the riches must surely lie. It’s all a matter of
I told the young boy that he will soon have
his chance to discover for himself what lies outside
this region. However, all I asked of him was that he
would every once in a while look back to where he was
coming from and see the golden windows that we have
right here in

Narrowly Escapes From War-Ravaged Lebanon - Now It Is Time To Start
All Over Again From Scratch But She Needs Help....
After spending the past 14 years living in Lebanon with
her husband, Sam Zoghbi, Monique Laderoute, second from the right in the
above photo, seemed to have it made. She and Sam had a great life. He was
doing very well in the restaurant business and she was developing a solid
reputation as a professional interior designer. And then around the middle
of July 2006, their world was turned upside down when Israel invaded Lebanon
and Monique was forced to flee from her home near Beirut and seek evacuation
back to Canada.
With their assets frozen in Lebanon, Monique and her
two teenaged boys were only able to bring one suitcase each out of the
country. The Laderoute's were able to secure space with 200 others on a
luxury casino yacht and eventually made it back to Valley East. "I
didn't even have enough money to make a phone call from the bus
station," recalls Monique. "But even though I have nothing and I
have to start out all over again on welfare with an empty apartment, I am so
grateful to have escaped with my sons. I'm back home now, and I will never
Monique, who was born and raised in Valley East, is
the daughter of Ron and Susan Laderoute. Ron is on the far left in the photo
and Susan is on the far right. Her aunt Jean Somers, second from the left,
was described by Monique as "my lifeline".
Monique's husband remained back in Lebanon to protect
their property. If all goes well, he should be joining his family in Valley
East within a couple of months. In the meantime, the Laderoute's are in dire
straights and are turning to the kind people of Valley East for help.
Monique is looking for a job as an administrative
assistant, executive secretary, human resources officer, or other similar
positions. Thanks to Val and Violet Mazzuca, they now have a rental home in
Hanmer, close to family and friends, but they have absolutely nothing to put
in the house and are looking for a helping hand. This is where the true
Valley Spirit is expected to come forward and help put them back on their
An open house is planned for Sunday, October 15, 2006
from 12:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the St. Jacques Parish Hall. If you have
donations of new household items such as bedding, utensils, kitchen and
bathroom items, etc. they would be greatly appreciated.
All are welcome to the open house, including family,
friends and caring individuals. Please join the Laderoute's for coffee and a
bite to eat as Monique shares her experiences with you. There will be a door prize. Any support would be greatly appreciated. If
you require more information please contact Jean Somers at 969-2304.
|Neil's Independent Grocer And
President's Choice Children's Charity Provides Financial Assistance to
The Poirier Family of Hanmer
The President's Choice Children's Charity is dedicated to helping children
who are physically or developmentally challenged.
We provide direct financial assistance in the purchase of mobility
equipment, environmental modifications, physical therapy and more in an
effort to remove some of the obstacles that make everyday living extremely
difficult for these children.
Loblaws founded the charity in 1989 and has since raised in excess of
$15,000,000 and helped over 3,500 families across Canada. Anyone with a
child or young adult under the age of 25 with a physical or developmental
disability can apply for financial assistance through this program. Just
stop by Neil's Independent Grocers and talk to Neil for more information.
This past year, the staff at Neil's Independent Grocers held barbecues,
walkathons, skateathons, draws, fish ponds and cake tables, raising over
$10,000 for the President's Choice Charity. In recognition for its efforts,
two local families received grants through the program.
In the photo above, Neil Lindenbach, owner of Neil's Independent Grocers,
is shown with the Poirier Family of Hanmer. Claire Poirier is a single
mother, raising three children. She is in the photo with two of her
children: Francois (18), who attends Grade 12 at Ecole Secondaire Hanmer,
and Isaac (10). Anik (6) was at home at the time of the photo.
For Claire, who was born and raised in Valley East, being the mother of
an autistic child, Isaac, means being always unsure of the future.
"Each day is a new day and you just don't know what it will bring.
Isaac attends school at Ste. Marie in Azilda because it is the only school I
know of that offers a special classroom for autistic children. He is
extremely hyper-sensitive and takes a long time to adjust to changes in his
routine, so I find that being in this class is good for him at this
It is quite difficult raising three children as a single mom in the first
place, but having an autistic child brings with it even more challenges.
Claire holds down two part-time jobs as a nurse so that she can take more
time off if needed to attend to Isaac's requirements or to catch up on some
"Francois is a great help to me," Claire declared. "I also
need to hire help from time to time."
The grant from the President's Choice Children's Charity will be used to
erect a fence around Claire's property in order to ensure that Isaac remains
in the yard and doesn't venture off without telling anyone where he is
going. This has always been a safety concern for the Poirier family and
having the fence is going to make it much easier to allow Isaac to enjoy
playing in the yard.
Neil is extremely proud of his staff who are always willing to take part
in fund-raising ventures to assist in the ultimate goal of raising money for
this worthwhile charity. "To have two grants in the same year is really
quite remarkable and will certainly help motivate my staff even more."

Food Bank Is Gearing Up For Another Busy Winter Season Of Helping
Those In Need
Bazinet is shown at the Registration Desk at the Good Neighbours Food Bank
which can be found upstairs at the Fire Hall on Lafontaine Street in Hanmer.
Pat Jobin originally started the Food Bank in February of 1994. With the
assistance of the Sudbury Food Bank Association and under the umbrella of
The Good Neighbours Foundation of Ontario, Pat was able to acquire financial
support with charitable funds generated at Bingo 1 in Sudbury. After
approaching the Mayor of Valley East, the local council granted her the use
of the present facility.
by Pat's enthusiasm and dedication a volunteer group of helpers was
organized. These volunteer shared in Pat's vision of having a local food
bank for residents whose circumstances found them in need of emergency
assistance. Today that group of volunteers continues to provide a much
needed service and it is not uncommon for them to be called during off hours
to provide emergency assistance or perform required tasks. The volunteers
also strive to bring awareness and involvement of the food bank into the
Many local and area merchants, professionals,
organizations and private individuals have over the years donated and
provided assistance to the Food Bank which encourages and motivates the
dedicated group at Good Neighbours to continue to serve the community.
Mrs. Anne Unwin, who has been involved with the Good Neighbours Food Bank
since it opened, is the person who has been the leader of the Board of
Directors and who leads the team of dedicated volunteers. The Good

Picks of the Month For October At Masciangelo Motors - Great
Deals Can Be Found Throughout The Entire Lot
the most popular features of the Masciangelo Motors web site has been the
Pick of the Month section.
Each month, Ron, Jeff, Tim and Jen select one vehicle they have on the
lot that they feel is one of the best on the lot.
According to Jeff, "It seems as if a lot of people go to that part
of the web site because once we list a vehicle as a Pick of the Month, it is
usually sold before the end of that month."

Jeff's pick for the month of October is this great looking 2004 DODGE
RAM HEMI 4x4 with crew cab, 40,000 kilometers and fully loaded. It has had
only one owner!
Ron & Jeff continue to search out the auctions, both in person and
on-line to bring in the best deals possible. This means that many vehicles
are on and off the lot before you know it, so many people in the market
for pre-owned vehicles have developed the habit of dropping in for a look
on a regular basis.
You can still discuss the type of car or truck you would like to
purchase and have Ron & Jeff search out the continent for exactly what
you are looking for. The "Pick of the Month" section on their

ON THE LIGHTER SIDE
One weekend my friend, a nurse, was looking after her six-year-old
nephew when he fell off a playground slide and hit his head. Worried
that he might have a concussion, she checked him all night. Every
hour, she'd gently shake him and ask, "What's your name?"
Soon, he began moaning in protest each time she entered the room.
When she went in at 5 A.M., she found something white on his
forehead. Leaning close, she saw a crayon-scrawled message taped to
his forehead. It read, "My name is Daniel."
The bank manager noticed the new clerk was not very good at counting
money and adding up figures.

"Yale," replied the lad.
"And what's your name?" barked the manager.

November 2006 Municipal Election Will Be All About Electing People
With Strong Leadership Skills
|When it comes to casting your vote in the November 2006
Municipal Election, your choice will pretty much depend on one thing and
one thing only.
Who do you feel among the possible candidates possesses the strongest
leadership skills and therefore, who do you feel is best equipped to do
the job of representing you at City Hall?
For example, anyone can make promises, but not everyone is capable of
delivering on those promises. Sometimes it requires a great deal of
strategic thinking and positioning in order to accomplish specific goals.
Let's take, for example, the issue of the Barrydowne Extension.
A large number of residents of Ward 6 - Hanmer & Val Therese, as
well as the residents of Val Caron, Blezard Valley, McCrea Heights and
Capreol also feel that a Barrydowne Extension highway would be beneficial
to the northern communities in the City of Greater Sudbury. It is easy for
a Councillor to stand behind this movement and demand that the rest of
Council approve such a major highway construction project.
However, a strong leader will look at the end goal and then work
backwards to see what has to be put in place in order to ensure the
Barrydowne Extension becomes a reality.
When you work from the 'End Goal' backwards, you see that in order to
be driving on a beautiful new four-lane highway linking Valley East to New
Sudbury, the following will have to exist:
- We will need to increase our population by about 5000 people in
order to justify the construction of a new highway to accommodate the
additional traffic load on our existing Hwy. 69N route.
In other words, it doesn't matter how many signatures you get on a
petition, nor does it matter how passionate a plea you make for the
construction of the highway, the existing traffic on Hwy 69 North
heading into Sudbury is not high enough to warrant the spending of
money on a new highway at the other end of the community. There are
times of the day when the traffic is heavy, but that traffic load must
be consistent all day long in order to convince the federal and
provincial governments to help fund the Barrydowne Extension.
In order to make the Barrydowne Extension highway a reality, the following will have to take place:
- We will need to have several senior apartment buildings and at least
one senior residential complex established in Valley East so that
seniors will be able to move out of their single family dwellings and
open up their houses for purchase by new families who cannot afford to
buy homes in the $300,000 range;
- We will need to facilitate the construction of approximately 300 -
400 new houses EACH year for the next five years This is a lot
of construction, but if we assume an occupancy of 3 people per new
home, this is only 900 to 1200 people per year. This means that we
must ensure that there are permits for approximately 1500 to 2000 new
houses pre-approved through the planning department;
- We will require many additional licensed day-care spaces for the young
families who will be anticipated to purchase these new homes. Without
adequate day-care spaces young families will not even consider
locating in this part of the region. The licensed day-care spaces are
needed in order for young families to receive subsidies to help pay
for this "necessity of life" for the 21st Century family;
- We will need to increase the water & sewer infrastructure in
Ward 6 in order to meet the new standards for home construction. Right
now, the infrastructure is restricting new development in some of the
older areas of the community of Hanmer. There is abundant space for
development, but the cost is prohibitive at this point until we can
increase the size of the "pipes in the ground";
- We will need to promote the Valley East Industrial Park in order to
bring new industry and jobs into the Valley East area. People like to
live close to where they work. The Valley East Industrial Park has a
lot of space available. As a council we should be encouraging
development in this Park because of its central proximity to all other
sectors of the City of Greater Sudbury;
- We will need to promote the industrial development of the East side
of the City of Greater Sudbury in order to create more jobs in that
part of the City so that people will be able to use the Barrydowne
Extension to get to work. This will create a further demand for
housing in the Valley and will place added pressure upon Council to
approve the construction of the new highway;
- We will need to convince the rest of City Council that the
Barrydowne Extension will eliminate the need for a Maley Drive
extension by virtually removing all traffic from Valley East from
Lasalle Blvd. If the Maley Drive Extension goes ahead as planned, it
will take over $32 million to complete. That will place a huge drain
on the road construction budget. The construction of the Barrydowne
Extension may accomplish the same goal at a fraction of the
- We will need to enhance our neighbourhood playgrounds and major
recreational facilities in order to attract new residents to Valley
East. This is an absolute no-brainer.
So, as you can clearly see, getting the Barrydowne Extension is not as
easy as simply trying to convince City Council to designate this project
as a top priority among road construction plans for the region. It will
require a whole new philosophy on the part of councillors with respect to where
residential development should be promoted, and thus requires a belief
that Valley East is the best place for this development.
In order to accomplish this big goal, all of the others must be done
first. That will take leadership and strategic planning.
When you cast your ballot on November 13, 2006, you will have to select
the person who you feel has the necessary skills to make all of the above
happen in order to accomplish your major objectives.
This applies to all major decisions that impact upon the residents of
Ward 6 - Hanmer & Val Therese. It is all a matter of leadership. That
is the question this time around.
POOR LEADERSHIP LEADS TO POOR
Unfortunately, we can site too many examples of how
the 'Poor Leadership' qualities of the City Council in general has lead to
some pretty bad decisions during the past few years. Just recently for
- Council has had a great deal of difficulty deciding on how to pay
for the rock tunnel project in the South End of the City. They have
reversed several decisions and it appears as if the rest of the
ratepayers will be paying for this project for the next 40 years;
- Council approved a construction project of $6 million for the
Kingsway from Falconbridge Road to the By-Pass. Funding from the
Provincial and Federal Government was obtained in the amount of $4
million for that project (based upon the fact that all three levels of
government were to split the cost equally). Between the time of the
approval and the time Council was to approve the final expenditure,
the cost had risen to $8.4 million. In addition, staff decided to add
enhancements to the project effectively raising the total cost to $13
million. Instead of sending staff back to the drawing board to find a
way of completing the project on budget, Councillors approved the
increased expenditure, thus accepting responsibility for $9 million of
the cost of a project that was originally pegged at $6 million. To add
insult to injury, only $1.1 million was budgeted for 2006, so the
remainder will be paid for in the 2007 and 2008 budgets, meaning that
if Robert Kirwan is elected, almost $8 million has already been spent
out of the road budget for the next two years.
- Council had to appoint a Community Solutions Team to survey the
residents of the outlying area in order to find out why they are so
dissatisfied with the current municipal government structure. With
seven members of the current council living in those outlying areas,
this was a blatant admission of poor leadership.
- The list is endless. This is why I say that the
"Leadership" issue is the most important one for the 2006
