You Can Win 100 Lotto 649 Tickets Plus Other Great Prizes Just By Subscribing To The Valley East Today Weekly Online News Magazine


   The "Keep The Spirit Alive Contest" was only introduced to the community during the month of June, and already it is picking up momentum as residents not only like the idea of winning valuable prizes, but they also are thrilled about the fact that they can do their small part to help improve the overall community spirit in Valley East and Capreol.

   Three community-minded local businessmen have teamed up to begin a “Keep The Spirit Alive Campaign” and they are inviting all residents to help them spread the message that Valley East is a great place in which to live!

   From left to right in the photo: Mike Lemieux, owner of Hanmer Home Hardware, Robert Kirwan, Publisher of the Valley East Today Community Web Site, and Ken Desjardins of Desjardins’ Food Basics announced the launch of the campaign during a press conference which was held at the Hanmer Valley Shopping Centre.

   In explaining the purpose of the initiative, Kirwan explained, “We want to let everyone know that Valley East is a town where you can still find that “old style community spirit” mixed with a modern lifestyle that fits right in with the 21st Century. There are a lot of good things happening in Valley East and it is about time that the rest of the people in the City of Greater Sudbury knew about it. Furthermore, it is also time to let the rest of the province know that if anyone is looking for a place to live and raise a family, or a place to retire within the City of Greater Sudbury , they need look no further than Valley East .”
   In order to help get this message out to the rest of the “world” the people of Valley East are being asked to take part in a massive communication strategy using the power of the internet. 

   Everyone participating in this campaign will have a chance to win a “Grand Prize” consisting of 100 Lotto 649 tickets for the New Year’s Eve Draw on December 31, 2006 . What a way to celebrate the New Year by winning the big prize with one of those tickets!

   Runners up will receive other valuable prizes, including “two” mountain bikes donated by Hanmer Home Hardware, $300 in groceries from Desjardins’ Food Basics, More prizes from other local merchants may be announced in the coming weeks before the contest ends. 

   In order to qualify for these prizes, all you have to do is register to receive the Valley East Today Weekly Online News Magazine. Every month from July until the end of December, ten names will be drawn at random from all of the people registered to receive the publication. Those ten people will qualify for our final draw which will be held on Christmas Eve. The winners will be announced in the December 26 issue of Valley East Today!

   Once you register, the Valley East Today Online Weekly News Magazine, which is currently being received by over 2300 people, will be sent directly to your email address every Tuesday.  Not only will you qualify to win the 100 Lotto 649 tickets or other runner up prizes, but more importantly, you can help us  “Keep the Spirit Alive” by forwarding Valley East Today to everyone on your own personal mailing list. By using the power of the internet, we can let tens of thousands of people know about Valley East every week.

Confederation Secondary School Chargers Looking For Plenty of Fan Support When They Open Their Season At Home On Friday

The Confederation Secondary School Chargers play their first home game of the season on Friday, September 15, 2006 at 1:30 in the afternoon at Confederation. Their opponent will be the Secondary School North Stars. It is a special school spirit game where students will be allowed to take time off class to come out and cheer on their team. The general public is also invited to come out and watch high school football being played on "the best football field in the district" according to Head Coach, Brandon Dougan. This year Confederation has four home games during the regular season. When he is not on the field, Brandon Dougan teaches Special Education at Confederation.

Dougan has played for the Sudbury Spartans for the past ten years and is recognized as one of the most effective offensive players in the league. In fact he was named to the NFC All-Star squad thanks to his 2006 season which saw him catch 22 passes for 440 yards, placing him second overall in the league. He scored four touchdowns.

Dougan played in the NFC All-Star Game at Queen's Athletic Field on Saturday, September 9, 2006.

He is definitely looking forward to leading the Chargers to another great season in hopes of coming out as City Champs.

Confederation is beginning its 5th year in the 8-team league, and to its credit, already holds one City Championship which was captured during its 2nd year of operation. The players were in training during the week prior to school opening, going through twice-a-day workouts to get back into shape for the North-South exhibition game played on Friday night, September 8, at Queen's Athletic Field in Sudbury.

The six-game schedule doesn't leave much time to play yourself into shape, so each game must be considered a must-win for the club. "Everybody who comes out to practice will make the team," explained Dougan, who plays as a receiver with the Sudbury Spartans during the summer. "The coaching staff is prepared to work with each of the boys to develop their playing skills and help them enjoy the game. We all have a background in football and truly believe in the benefits of being part of a football team."

Dougan also coaches in the Joe MacDonald Football League and is committed to putting something back into the game he loved as a young kid. "I remember playing for the Paris Street Blues in high school under Sid Forester. He helped me go on to a University career with the St. Mary's Huskies. I love the game and I saw what it did to help me accomplish my goals. Now as a teacher, I can look forward to working with young people all my life."

The players would love to see as many people from the community at the field to cheer them on as well. Football is not something that we get much of a chance to see in Valley East, but it would be extremely nice if we gave our boys the kind of boost that they get in small towns in the United States.

The complete schedule for the 2006 season for Confederation is as follows:


Friday, September 15 1:30 p.m. at Confederation against Sudbury Secondary
Friday, September 22 7:00 p.m. at Queen's Athletic Field against Lasalle
Friday, September 29 7:00 p.m. at Queen's Athletic Field against St. Charles
Wednesday, October 4 3:30 p.m. at Confederation against Loellen
Friday, October 13 3:30 p.m. at Confederation against Notre Dame
Wednesday, October 18 3:30 p.m. at Confederation against Lockerby


October 25 to 28
The teams will be divided into two divisions for the playoffs with the top four in one division and the bottom four in another. Semi-Finals will be played between October 25 and 28 with the winners advancing to the finals of their respective divisions.
Friday, November 3
The two final games will be played at Queen's Athletic Field with the bottom four division meeting at 4:00 p.m. and the City Championship Game at 7:00 p.m.


The first round of the playoffs is history. Now the four divisions enter their championship finals with the first games to be played on Tuesday, September 12. 

Our playoff information is being provided by Brian Beaupre who has been providing us with up to date standings all during the season.

Check Out The Picks of the Month For September At Masciangelo Motors - Great Deals Can Be Found Throughout The Entire Lot
One of 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."

If you would like to check out the picks for September, simply follow this link: Pick of the Month

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.

Divine Providence

The following is an article written by David Helwig that appeared in SooToday.com on Saturday, September 2, 2006.


They buried Jewel Martin yesterday, down in Port Findlay on Lake Huron's picturesque North Channel. Jewel died this past Tuesday at Sault Area Hospital. She was 78.

The past two years have been rough on the Martin family, known in agricultural circles as one of Northern Ontario's most progressive dairy producers.

It's been just a little over two months since Jewel's husband Stan, the family's hard-working patriarch, died suddenly at Matthews Memorial Hospital in Richards Landing, St. Joseph Island, on June 14.

Nineteen months before that, their daughter, Shiela Matheson, a former Algoma school trustee, died of cancer.

Then came Jewel's death this week.

Three passings in less than two years - all hard blows for a close-knit Tarbutt Township farm family.

But at Jewel's funeral yesterday at the Arthur Funeral Home and Cremation Centre in Sault Ste. Marie, grief transfigured into raw amazement when mourners were shown this astonishing trio of carrots, shown here by special permission of the Martin family.

The carrots were found in Jewel's garden the day after she died.

The following, as related to SooToday.com by relatives and friends of the
Martin family, is the remarkable story of the Miracle of Stan Martin's

Best friends for 72 years

Stan and Jewel had been married for 59 years, but they'd been best friends for much longer than that.

Their relationship actually began at West Korah school just outside the Sault, when Jewel was in Grade 1 and Stan in Grade 2.

It was the first day of classes, and Jewel was sitting under a tree, crying because she didn't know where she was supposed to put her lunch pail. Stan, exhibiting a compassion for which he would become known throughout his adult life, came over to find out what was wrong.

He resolved Jewel's problem and the two remained close friends through their school years, marrying in 1947. They moved to Tarbutt to take up farming, a calling at which Stan excelled.

Introducing the upright silo

The Martins pioneered the use of upright silos in Northern Ontario and Stan became a silo distributor, at the same time as he and Jewel built a herd of dairy cows that at one point numbered 90 - quite impressive for an Algoma operation.

Stan served on the Ontario Milk Marketing Board as a provincial director and was also a director of the Algoma Co-op in Echo Bay.

"In addition to being a hard worker, he cared for people," recalls Mike Tulloch, the Thessalon lay preacher who presided at both Stan's and Jewel's funerals.

"He could never stand to see someone treated poorly," Tulloch says. "He stood up for the less fortunate, whether they were children or a wife who was being treated badly."

Stan Martin was also known for his sense of humour, which he deftly employed to keep people in line and to defuse tense situations.

Jewel, the matriarch

As hard as Stan worked, Jewel worked even harder.

She laboured alongside Stan in the barn, milked the cows, loaded the hay (one year, there were 32,000 bales) and then spent her evenings tending to the myriad needs of five children.

"She was a very positive influence to people," Tulloch says. "She accepted everybody for who they were, and they thought the world of her because she was such a positive influence."

Which brings us to Stan's ring.

He lost it about four years ago, and after he died, Jewel was often heard commenting that she wished she still had it.

Mikayla and Shelley pull carrots

Then, the day after Jewel died, two of her grandchildren (Mikayla and Shelley) were pulling carrots from the garden Jewel had planted shortly after Stan died.

And there, encircling this cluster of three intertwined roots, was their Grandpa's missing ring!

Glenn Martin, clerk-treasurer for the Township of Tarbutt & Tarbutt Additional and a son to Stan and Jewel, brought the carrots to the Arthur Funeral Home yesterday.

"If we needed a sign that Shiela, Dad and Mum are together, this is a pretty good one!" Glenn says in a special card he's been e-mailing to family and friends.

'This is certainly a sign'

"It's more than coincidence," says Tulloch, who held up the inseparable carrots as he delivered the eulogy yesterday.

"I do believe in Divine Providence and this is certainly a sign," he told SooToday.com. "It's certainly a sign of comfort to the family."

Glenn Martin, meanwhile, is trying now to find the best way of preserving Jewel Martin's Miracle Carrots.
