2 The GrapevineJan 27 - Feb 10, 2011Update on the Greenwich Farmland Situation:The January 17th Public Hearing had an excellent turnout! Almost 300 persons packed the Kentville CouncilChambers and the crowd overflowed out into the hall. The Hearing lasted until approximately 11:40 pm.The Vote: Deferred until February 1st at 6 pm (Council Chambers,87 Cornwallis St., Kentville Municipal Building) in order to give counciltime to read all the letters and material presented to them on the nightof the hearing & attempt to answer numerous unanswered questionsraised by residents of Greenwich and Kings County.Speakers: 44 spoke against the proposal, plus 9 Raging Granniestook a turn singing out their opposition. 14 spoke in favour of theproposal.Letters: In addition to the 53 podium opposers, another 162individually-sent letters were received and recorded by the County. 131form letters and 29 individually-sent letters were received and recordedby the County from those in favour.Petitions: Against the development tallied 721 signatures (263residents of Kings County) and an online petition requesting a moratoriumon farmland development in Kings County and NS tallied 2,947signatures (1,301 residents of Kings County). A petition in favour of theproposal collected 490 signatures (addresses not collected).Lawsuit: David Daniels went on the record to state that a positiveConcordia, Part IV: RescueThe plane came in from the west,the drone of its engines buildingwith each passing moment.The change in mood in our lifepod in those few minutes wasremarkable. Signal flares fromour emergency supply werequickly readied and fired into thedarkening sky. The plane, nowclearly visible, changed directionand came directly overhead. Fromoff to starboard another flare wasspotted – the fourth life pod wasjust a few hundred meters away!After several passes the planedeparted, leaving us in highspirits and wondering what wasin store. Our exact position nowestablished, how close was arescue ship? The evening woreon with lots of conversation.Some tried to sleep – it was nowmore than thirty hours sincethe sinking and we were weary.I dozed off, to be awakenedat about 3:00 AM, with thereporting of spotlights from ahuge merchant ship close at hand.The Hokuetsu Delight, a 700 footfreighter heading from China toBrazil had been diverted to pickus up.As it turned out the next fewhours were the most difficult ofall. The ship was not equipped totake aboard persons at sea level.Their deck was 70 feet aboveus. They had to maneuver verycarefully as the life pods couldeasily be overturned and the seaswere running at 10-15 feet. Arope ladder was lowered to justabove our pod and two of thestudents managed to jump andcatch hold. They scampered up tothe deck but the danger inherentin accomplishing this feat, in thedark, convinced our captain todelay any further attempts fortransfer until first light. So wesettled in for our second night atsea, with the Hokuetsu Delightstanding off to windward.By dawn the swells had lessoned.The ship came in close once more.Each of us waited our turn: standvote would result in a lawsuit citing (amongst many other points in a 39page written submission) ‘Approval of the Draft Policies will benefit fiveprivate landowners and will provide no benefit to the public’. To see thisdocument, visit: dubyadubya.wordpress.com/ and scroll down a bit.History: Mr. Elderkin, Mr. Forsyth and other applicants provideda glimpse into the barriers and roadblocks facing the farming operationson some of their lands. These issues (lack of water, sewer, buildingpermits, restrictions on livestock) have made farming the land lessprofitable and more challenging thereby providing a foundation fortheir proposal.Questions: Some of the common themes from the oppositioncamp include: unknown infrastructure and maintenance costs, the lackof demand for 2200+ new residential & commercial units, other existinggrowth centers providing ample opportunity on non-ag land and alack of regional planning.Vigil: For those wishing to provide their support against the proposal,there will be a gathering outside the chambers starting at 5:30pm.The 6pm council meeting is open to the public.Info: www.nofarmsnofood.ca / www.nogrowthnofuture.comup (in itself not an easy task, after40 hours seated), move to theedge of the pod, time your jump(from a spongy ‘floor’) so as tograb for the ladder as the waveslifted the pod to the nearestpoint. Miraculously we all madeit. The students went first. Themedical officer was hoisted upon a back board. Fittingly, ourcaptain came last.The rope ladder took us to within15 feet or so of the deck. Atthat point we climbed over toa companion way ‘bridge’ thatsloped up to the top. A number ofthe crew positioned themselvesalong this path way to help us up;it took most of us a few minutesbefore our ‘land legs’ could befound.The crew members of themerchant ship were wonderful.They gave us their clothes, theirshowers, their cabins. We atechicken noodle soup, wrapped inblankets in their lounge. For theentire journey to Rio de Janeiro– a day or so - we had the run ofthe ship.Lots more could be said, but I willend by answering four questionsfrequently asked: We saw no signof sharks during our lifeboatexperience. The Concordia isunlikely to be revisited - it liesin 3.3 kilometer deep water. Tothis point no satisfactory answerhas been put forward to explainthe Brazilian authorities’ tardyresponse to our distress call - afterall, we were spotted within threehours of their finally commencingthe search. And sure, I wouldlove to go to sea in a tall shiponce more, but my family agreesthat I have had that particularadventure!~Maurice TugwellFor the complete story, visit ourblog: grapevine.wolfville.orgMovie RentalsFirst Anniversary Party!Prizes & Treats to be had!Sat Jan 29 at 2pm(across from the fire hall)360 Main St, Wolfville, 697-FILM (3456)www.cinematopia.caLose Inches in Minutes withHollywood Secret BodyWraps20 Grey Street Windsor. 792-1229info@elementsofhealth.ca

7 The GrapevineJan 27 - Feb 10, 2011have long been a person who isI fascinated by what I like to callrhythmology - studying the ways inwhich rhythm influences, shapes,informs and “moves” music, andhow our own perceptions andpreconceptions of rhythm andtime shape our understandingof music itself. I am fortunatein that most of the courses Iteach at Acadia (World Rhythmand Drumming, Gamelan, andAdvanced Rhythm) allow methe opportunity to incorporate,explore and share these ideasabout the numerous aspects ofrhythm.I am a musician who iscomfortable in many styles andinformed by multiple influences.I have studied (and continue tostudy) South Indian, Indonesian,The Acadia PageAcadia University - 15 University Ave, Wolfville. 542-2201Staffed Switchboard 8:30am-4:30pm. agi@acadiau.ca – General InquiriesProfessor’s Perspectives: Ken ShorleyInstructor, School of MusicArab, Turkish and WesternEuropean musics. I am invariablydrawn to forms of music whichhave a strong sense of grooveor rhythmic drive. Conversely(some would say ironically) I alsohave a weakness for a beautifultune. Therefore, the musics whichmost inspire and influence meas a performer and composerare those which combine strongmelodies and powerful rhythms,including Karnatak (classicalSouth Indian) music, Sundanesegamelan degung, the classicalArab takht, Rom music fromRajasthan to Istanbul to Seville,the string quartets of TerryRiley and Leos Janaček, andpretty much anything the OscarPeterson Trio (with Ray Brownand Ed Thigpen) ever recorded!Who we are: Open Acadia is Acadia University’s initiativeto offer flexible programming and learning opportunities to Acadiastudents and the greater community.

10 The GrapevineJan 27 - Feb 10, 2011Horoscopes for week of January 27, 2011 © Copyright 2011 Rob Brezsnyaries (march 21-april 19):what rewards do you deservefor all the good living and thehard work you’ve done sinceyour last birthday? and whatamends should you make for themediocre living and the workyou’ve shirked since your lastbirthday? if you choose this week to take care of these two matterswith purposeful clarity, you will ensure the best possible outcomes. thereward you earn will be the right one, and the amends you offer willprovide the proper correction.TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Sometimes I fly in my dreams. Theecstasy is almost unbearable as I soar high above the landscape. Butthere’s something I enjoy dreaming about even more, and that’srunning. For years I’ve had recurring dreams of sprinting for sheer joythrough green hills and meadows, often following rivers that go onforever. I’m never short of breath. My legs never get tired. I feel vitaland vigorous and fulfilled. Does it seem odd that I prefer running toflying? I think I understand why. The flying dreams represent the partof me that longs to escape the bonds of earth, to be free of the sufferingand chaos here. My running dreams, on the other hand, express thepart of me that loves being in a body and exults in the challenges of thisworld. Given your astrological omens, Taurus, I think you’re ready forwhatever is your personal equivalent of running in your dreams.GEMINI (May 21-June 20): An interviewer asked me if there’s anyspecial ritual I do before writing these horoscopes. I told her that Ioften say a prayer in which I affirm my desire to provide you withthese three services: 1. that what I create will be of practical use toyou; 2. that it will help you cultivate your relationship with your innerteacher; 3. that it will inspire you to tap into and use the substantialfreedom you have to create the life you want. I hope I’m doing a goodjob, Gemini, because in the coming weeks your inner teacher will beoverflowing with practical clues about the art of liberation.CANCER (June 21-July 22): “Spring dawn: Turning toward thestorm cloud, I lost sight of the bird.” Let this haiku-like poem byJulius Lester serve as a cautionary tale, Cancerian. You’re at risk ofgetting so fearfully fixated on a storm cloud that you may lose track,metaphorically speaking, of a rare and beautiful bird. And the thing is,the storm cloud isn’t even harboring that big a ruckus. It will pour outits flash and dazzle quickly, leaving virtually no havoc in its wake. That’swhy it would be a shame for you to let your perverse fascination with itcause you to get separated from a potential source of inspiration.LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Shockwaves of toxic misinformation pulsethrough the Internet on a regular basis. One of the latest infectionsattacked the subject of astrology. An astronomer in Minneapolisproclaimed that due to the precession of the equinoxes, everyone’sastrological sign is wrong. He was perfectly mistaken, of course, forreasons I explain here: http://bit.ly/AstroHoax. But few journalists inthe major media bothered to check the accuracy of the sensationalistallegation before publishing it, and soon the collective imagination wason fire. Hundreds of thousands of people suffered unnecessary identitycrises and felt emotions that were based on a fallacy. In the comingweek, Leo, you should be on high alert for a comparable outbreak ortwo in your personal sphere. Be vigorously skeptical -- not just towardthe stories other people tell, but also toward the theories and fantasiesthat rise up in your own brain. Don’t believe everything you think.VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You are usually conscientious aboutattending to the details. It’s one of your specialties to take care of littlenecessities. You often know what to do in order to fix mistakes andmesses caused by the imprecision of other people. For now, though, Iencourage you to take a break from all that. In my opinion, you need toregenerate and replenish yourself, and a good way to accomplish thatis to let your mind go blissfully blank. At least consider it, please. Giveyourself permission to space out about the intricacies. Steep yourself inthe primordial ooze where everything is everything.LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): I’ll be interested to see how you shift yourattitudes about love in the coming weeks, Libra. Fate will be bringingyou good reasons to move away from long-held opinions about thenature of romance and intimacy. Your subconscious mind will bestirring with new dispensations about how best to deal with andexpress your life-giving longings. All in all, the process should be prettyenjoyable, especially if you relish psycho-spiritual riddles that impel youto probe deeper into the mysteries of togetherness.SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): “Dear Rob: I am a professional obsesser. Imean I obsess on things a lot. But here’s the thing. When I do obsess onsomething and work with manic intensity to achieve it, I am changed inthe process -- frequently to the point of no longer desiring what I wasonce obsessed by! This makes me crazy! Any advice? - Flagrant Scorpio.”Dear Flagrant: This is a gift, not a problem. Figuring out what you don’twant is a key factor in developing self-knowledge. And often the onlyway to do that is by pursuing what you think you want. Ultimatelyyou’ll be purged of your lesser longings and superficial wishes and beable to crystallize a clear vision of what you truly desire more thananything else.SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “The greatest challenge to anythinker is stating the problem in such a way that will allow a solution,”said philosopher Bertrand Russell. In other words, the words you useto describe your dilemma are crucial. If you’re lazy or pessimistic aboutframing your big question, you minimize your chances for findinga useful answer. If you’re precise and creative, you’re more likely toattract the information and inspiration you need. This is always true, ofcourse, but especially so for you right now.CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): A “karma whore” is someone whoperforms an abundant number of favors and acts of kindness in thehope of accumulating extra good karma. Judging from the astrologicalomens, I’m thinking this week will be prime time for you to flirt withbeing such a person. Why? Because the blessings you bestow in the nearfuture are more likely than usual to generate specific blessings comingback your way. You don’t necessarily have to go to ridiculous extremes-- holding the door open for five people behind you, allowing ten carsto merge in front of you on the highway, flinging out casual but sincerecompliments with reckless abandon. But from what I can tell, the morehelp you dole out, the more you’ll get in return.AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You may have no idea of how muchpower you have right now to start fresh -- to escape the muddle ofmurky old failures. Your imagination might not yet be sufficientlylubricated to glide you into the expansive version of the future youdeserve. But I’m hoping that this little horoscope of mine changes allthat. I’m praying that you are already registering the pleasant shock I’mtrying to jolt you with, and are awakening to the rampant possibilities.On your mark. Get set. Go!PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): I’ve never been a fan of gurus. My viewis that everyone should be his or her own guru. But there was oneguy whose antics were pretty entertaining. He was one of those crazywisdom types who borrowed liberally from the trickster archetype.This is what he told his followers about how to interpret their dreamsin which he appeared. “If you dream of me and I’m not kicking yourbutt, it wasn’t really me.” I’ll say the same thing to you, Pisces: The onlyteachers worth listening to, studying, and dreaming about in the nexttwo weeks will be those who kick your butt.Heard of the new Horoscope Calendar? Wewere curious as well, so we asked Rob Brezsnyabout it.

13 The GrapevineJan 27 - Feb 10, 2011Wearing Pearls in the Kitchen – Happy Holidays!Happy 2011! Yes, I know I’m a bit late out of the starting gate, I tried hibernating through the winter but I can tell you that bears make it lookeasy. It’s hard to sleep through en entire season when you have to keep getting up to go to the bathroom every few hours. Oh well, I’m gladI’m awake anyway. 2011 is off to a roaring start and no negative thermometer reading is going to stop me from making this the best year ever.Who’s with me?! What’s your resolution? I resolve to laugh more, live more, read more, and eat more of what makes me happy! Within reason ofcourse, everything in moderation. 2011 is the year to be good to yourself, your friends and your family. Why not invite them over for a meal andconversation? Snuggle with your sweetie more. Go out dancing with the girls. Go out drinking with the boys (just be responsible, skip the drunktexting and don’t drive!) Have fun! Live it up! Ok, with that, here’s a down home recipe that’s sure to warm you, body and soul. It’ll get you readyfor those wild nights out on the town. ~Victoria ComeauAcadian Stew Chicken Fricot• 3 lbs. chicken pieces, skin removed• 2 large onions, chopped• 2 Tbsp. butter• 1 Tbsp. flour• 6 large potatoes, peeled and cubed• 2 medium carrots, peeled and sliced• 10 cups water• 1 Tbsp. salt• 1 tsp. pepper• 1 Tbsp. summer savouryIn large pot simmer the chicken pieces in boiling water for 30 minutes.Remove pieces, save the cooking water and let the chicken cool slightly.Stir-cook onions in butter for one minute. Add the flour and stir-cookfor another 1 to 2 minutes. Remove the bones from the chicken and cutthe meat into bite size pieces. Put all ingredients into the saved cookingwater and simmer for another 30 minutes. Test and adjust seasoning.Dumplings:In a bowl mix 1 cup of flour with 1/2 tsp. of salt and 1 Tbsp. of bakingpowder. Gradually add 1/2 cup of cold water. Drop the mixture into thestew a spoonful at a time, 7 minutes before the fricot is ready to serve.Homeopathic Treatment for “People with Anxiety”What is anxiety? The rootmeaning of anxiety is“to vex or trouble”.I’ll say! It certainlycreates troublein many lives, especiallytoday. We are living in a societywhere anxiety is an epidemic!When I see a patient with acuteanxiety or anxiety disorder (morechronic), they are truly suffering.Sometimes the anxiety arises asa result of a stressful situation,but more often than not, peoplesuffering from anxiety try to find“reasons” why they are anxious,and often cannot. There is astigma attached to anxiety, andit’s really unfortunate becauseit is a disease, and more oftenthan not, the “reason” for itis unexplainable; it is nearlyimpossible to “talk yourself outof it”!Homeopathic treatment ofanxiety is a wonderful optionbecause it addresses the root ofthe anxiety, in addition to treatingthe health of the patient as a“whole”, without the risk of sideeffects. When I treat someonewith anxiety, I look at everything;the health history, body temperature,time of day, physicalsymptoms, emotional symptoms,behavioural changes, likes anddislikes, fears/phobias and the listgoes on. It addresses the anxietyand the “person” experiencingit. For example: each anxietylooks and feels different and eachperson is unique, and thereforerequires a specific remedy tailoredto them. To illustrate this, I haveprovided a case of anxiety belowbut this prescription was specificto this individual case and willnot work without the supervisionof a homeopathic doctor.Case #2- Male, age 15 yrs, chiefcomplaint is anxiety and fearfor the last 2 years. It is worsein the evening once the sungoes down, fear of somethingbad happening, and fear of thedark. Anxiety is felt in chest,causing a heavy, audible pulse,and heaviness in the chest. Hegets heated up in the body withthe anxiety, is sensitive to noise,and easily startled. He can’t liedown, it makes the anxiety worse,and has to prop up to sleep,breathing is shallow. Triggers forthe anxiety are darkness, largegroups of people, and twilight(when the sun is going down). Heis thirsty for ice cold water, andcraves salty food and ice cream.No other health complaintsexcept occasional heartburn afterspicy food. Prescription wasPhosphorus 2 pellets (single dose)Follow-up: No more anxiety, andsleeping much better at night.Still on the nervous side whengoing to be in a large group ofpeople, but fine once gettingthere, no more anxiety in thedark, and feeling “overall backto self again”. Redosed 2 pellets,anxiety completely relieved- norecurrence of anxiety in 2 years.“Before trying homeopathic treatmentI was tired all the time,could not concentrate and felt anoverall sluggishness. Homeopathictreatment changed this. Now, sixmonths later I still feel better, canget out of bed in the morning feelingclear and ready to take on my dayand I can get things done. I wouldrecommend Sarah Trask to anyone.”Amanda, Toronto, ON~Sarah Trask, HD (RHom)Pie r Squared “The Valley in a crust”Find us at the Wolfville Farmers’ Market 697-2502 www.pie-r-squared.ca

Sure, it might be where you live, but it can stillhave that institution-like feel. Quite frankly, it can take some timebefore a single room feels like home.There was a retired school teacher who lived next door but, due tofailing physical health, he moved into a retirement home. Althoughhe’s been there for a long time and despite him being a very wellmanneredgentleman, he certainly has had no issue letting youknow that he’s still missing the familiar, comforting features ofhome. Recently however, while visiting a dear friend, we noticed abeautiful, quilted wall hanging at the head of his bed. It has 12 squaresand every square contains a hand-sewn picture and the name of each ofthe 12 one-room school houses he taught in during his career. I’m notsure who made this home-made gift but it certainly would have takenhours of work and oodles of consideration. It recognizes the yearswhen he touched the lives of many and is a daily reminder of where hecame from. Hopefully, more than anything, it keeps him smiling.Lorna MacLeanGrapevine Advertising Rates: (per issue)Ad Size 1 Issue 4 Issues 13 Issues 26 Issues1 Block $40 $36 $34 $322 Blocks $80 $72 $68 $643 Blocks $110 $99 $94 $884 Blocks $130 $117 $110 $104Footer Ads: $25 an issue, min. 4-issue commitment{Submission Deadline for February 10th issue, February 8th95% of all businesses in Wolfville, Grand Pré , Gaspereau& Port Williams receive at least 1 hand-delivered copy.Additional papers can be found at these fine locations:Wolfville: The Post Office, EOS, Pita House, Muddy’s Convenience,Cinematopia, the public Library, Just Us!
