The Case of The Missing Playground Equipment Is Solved
But What Now????

Real Carre, Director of Leisure, community and volunteer services has explained that the removal of local playground equipment during the middle of summer vacation is for the safety and well-being of the Greater Sudbury community. He added that the City is beginning to completely replace or partially retrofit aging playgrounds that no longer meet Canadian Standards Association guidelines.

The photos above and below show that the Valley Acres playground was one of those facilities that lost a major piece of equipment earlier this spring. It has not been replaced yet, so neighbourhood children have lost out on many days of holiday enjoyment. This has not sat well with parents of the area.

Close to 30 playgrounds throughout the City of Greater Sudbury have had equipment removed this year. Apparently, a playground practitioner (whatever that is) was hired this spring to create an inventory of playground equipment and report back to the department of leisure services. Equipment that did not meet Canadian Standards was removed. Tenders were put out on July 21, with City Council expected to approve the process on August 10. Council approved an expenditure of $750,000 in January for the upgrading of playgrounds, but the procedures in place require further approval of the tendering process. If Council approves the expenditure for the new equipment, it will be ordered and installed sometime in late September or early October, just in time to be covered up with snow.

Many local residents in the Valley Acres subdivision, as well as in the area around Elmview Playground are fuming at the loss of equipment and the subsequent discovery that nothing has been done to replace it in a timely manner. Some parents are claiming that there is nothing wrong with the equipment in the first place. Some welding and fresh paint would have done the job just fine and given children a place to play all summer.

Others are extremely upset that the City is using the "safety excuse" with playground equipment. One mother was quoted as saying, "Just look at the rust that is all over the playground equipment. If they are so worried about safety, then why don't they get a can of paint and fix the equipment that is left here. My children are more likely to get injured by a piece of rust than from faulty equipment."

One young father used very forceful language to state what he thought about the "safety line" being used by the City. "They say they are so concerned about the safety of the children then they build a skateboard park in Minnow Lake and allow kids to risk head injuries because they are not forced to wear equipment. Give me a break!"

Carre admitted that the City should have informed local residents prior to removing the equipment. As a result, the city will be sending flyers to residents who live within a kilometre of the affected parks to explain why the equipment was removed and when it will be replaced. 

While that may please some people, others are pointing to this as another example of what is wrong with the current system. As one observer stated, "First of all they hire a consultant to do an inventory of the playground equipment when we have all kinds of staff in the leisure department. Then they take out the equipment at the beginning of the summer and don't plan on replacing it until October. Then they leave all of the rest of the equipment covered in rust to deteriorate so that it will have to be replaced next year. What are they thinking?"

Robert Kirwan, one of the Candidates for Council of Ward 6, Hanmer and Val Therese, had several comments to make on the matter. "Our local playgrounds should be the heart of their neighbourhood. When people with children are deciding on a place to live, they don't just look for a house. They look at the recreational facilities, the schools, the day care centers and the retail outlets. Then they choose a home that will be central to the needs of a growing family. When they travel around Valley East they see playgrounds with rusty equipment, long grass, gravel on the pavement, graffiti on the walls and gaping holes where equipment has been removed. Despite all of this, Valley East is still booming. Imagine how things will be once we force the City to pay serious attention to our playgrounds and the conditions of our community."

AUGUST 4, 2006
Whether You Are Buying a Newly Built House or a Previously Owned House, It Is Always A Good Time To Check Out Flooring Options Before You Move In! 
   Ron Pedneault, owner of Fantastic Floors, located in the Valley Bingo Plaza in Val Caron, prepares to discuss some new flooring options with one of his customers who have just purchased a new home in Valley East . The young couple is looking forward to moving into their home at the beginning of August and wanted to make some changes to the existing floors. Here they were going over some of the samples of ceramics and porcelain which are becoming ever popular throughout the entire house, not just in the kitchen and bathrooms.

   According to Ron, “Just about everybody I know who has purchased an existing house makes some changes to the flooring in at least one of the rooms. New home owners want to personalize the house in some way to make sure that the floors and walls are in line with their own personalities, or they just find the old flooring in need of replacement. Whatever the reason, it is always a good idea to change the flooring “before” you begin moving in with the furniture.”

   Ron advises that if you are preparing to move into a new house this summer or fall, it would be a good idea to meet with him to go over the options and plan your renovations to coincide with your moving date. Even if you are still “looking” for that perfect house, stop by and talk about the different kinds of flooring that you can order and get an idea of approximate cost so that you can include floor replacement in your cost calculations at the time of purchase. It doesn’t hurt to talk, and Ron will always find time to give you free advice.

   “You wouldn’t believe the number of people I’ve seen who are moving into homes in the Valley. We knew this community was going to grow, which is one of the main reasons we wanted to open FANTASTIC FLOORS,” stated Ron, who after spending over 30 years working in the flooring business on everything from installing to sales and management, has found that the transition to owning and operating his own store has been extremely satisfying.

   “We will do anything we can to help the Valley grow and prosper. That is why we are participating in the Valley East Lions Charity Days Treasure Hunt,” he explained.

   FANTASTIC FLOORS will have one of the twelve (12) combination locks on site from July 20 to July 26 and again from August 10 to 16. Anyone who has a combination is invited to stop by and see if you can open the lock and qualify for a trip to Cuba .

FANTASTIC FLOORS, is open Monday to Wednesday, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. ; open late until 9 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays, and; open until 5 p.m. on Saturdays. 
   We also invite you to take a virtual tour of FANTASTIC FLOORS on their web site at  www.fantasticfloors.ca

Linda Tessier Is Winner of the July Customer Appreciation Contest At The Hanmer Valley Shopping Centre
"This is the first time I've ever won anything in my life," explained a happy Linda Tessier as she received her package of gift certificates from Robert Kirwan, Director of Marketing & Public Relations for the Hanmer Valley Shopping Centre. Linda was the winner of the July Customer Appreciation Contest which is sponsored by mall merchants. She received a total of over $1500 in gift certificates and coupons which can be used by either herself or any of her family and friends to whom she wishes to distribute any she cannot use herself. Shoppers are invited to enter the contest each time they make a purchase at the mall. All they have to do is place their name and phone number on the back of their cash register receipt or fill out one of the ballots available in front of Desjardins' Food Basics or Billie Jeans.
Mary Guy Says Thank You To Everyone Who Supported The Dystonia Walk-And-Wheel Event
To our loyal supporters:

Although our numbers were small, our Walk and Wheel for Dystonia Medical Research was a success. With 35 participants, including MPP Shelley Martel, we raised just over $5600 and we hope to receive some extra money from Wal-Mart. It was a cool day but great for walking. We had lots of door prizes and with our small numbers everyone went home with a prize. Thank you to LInda Thompson, who organized the BBQ; Len Shymkiw for doing the cooking, and to the merchants who supplied the food...Desjardins' Food Basics (Hanmer Valley Shopping Centre); Loebs (Val Caron); Neil's YIG (Hanmer); Marche Richelieu (Hanmer; and Tim Horton's (Hanmer).

Special thanks to all the retailers who donated door prizes: Plaza 69 Pharmacy, John Ellis IDA, Staples, Ray Bonin (Canadian Flaga), Chapters, M&M Meats, Rusty Cellars, Toppers Pizza, Scotiabank, Barrydowne Paint & Wallpaper, Wal-Mart, Buddies' Restaurant, Grand & Toy, Chico's Bowl & Sports Lounge, Dorothy Pearsall, and Mary Guy. 

We also made the front page of the Sudbury Star with a wonderful article about Dwayne Backer, who raised an amazing $1937.75 for the cause. Keith Lacey from the Northern Life also did an article for us about dystonia and Bob Kirwan showed up to take pictures at our walk so we look forward to seeing them either in the Vision newspaper or on his web site at www.valleyeasttoday.ca.

With all this coverage, many more people should be aware of this illness called dystonia. With the help of all these wonderful people our walk was a great success.

Thank you,
Mary Guy, Support Group Leader

Masciangelo Motors Brings In Greater Number of On-Site Vehicles With Expansion of Lot Space
Masciangelo Motors has recently expanded the the amount of space it has on site for vehicles and the result has been a huge increase in the number of cars and trucks on the lot for customers to browse through. 

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 web site also gives you an excellent overview of the kinds of vehicles you can find on the lot.

If you want a close up look at the latest on the lot, just drop in and see Ron, Jeff, Tim or Jennifer. Better yet, go the link below and take a tour right from your computer.
