After a decades-long career helping young families, seniors and low-income people regain their health and social independence, Bernice Marmel’s deep commitment to the community has only deepened as ‘she defended the well-being of her neighbors.

On April 28, 2021, the longtime Winnipeg resident, lawyer, mother, friend and recipient of the Order of Manitoba passed away at the age of 94 at the Saul and Claribel Simkin Center.

Lynda Metcalfe recalled working with her friend at the Nor’West Co-op Health and Social Services Center in the Gilbert Park neighborhood in the mid-1970s, as they shared notes and concerns from community members, many of whom were young parents, single moms, minimum wage earners, moving to city life after leaving a reserve, and retirees.

In her role as a health educator, Marmel was responsible for creating programs and partnerships to support residents in nutrition, finances, social and community recreation, fitness, mental health, and more.

“As a nurse practitioner, I saw quite a few young mothers in the area with children at home and very stressed,” recalls Metcalfe. “And I remember going down the hall from my office to her office and saying, ‘Bernice, I see a lot of mothers who are isolated and going through tough times. ”

Upon retirement, Marmel also served on the boards of three housing complexes, Sanderson said, and was instrumental in the development of Widlake Properties, a 95-unit, non-profit affordable housing project. more than 55 accommodations.

“She was there to serve the community, she was an example of how to do it,” he said.

Marmel was exceptionally proud of her family, including her two children, Lawrence and Rosalind, and their father Max Marmel, their grandchildren Shane and Allison, as well as being a devoted sister to her three brothers, Metcalfe said.

PRINCETON – The staff and board of directors of Adsmore House and Gardens are preparing the institution for a reopening in the fall.

The local attraction closed in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. During the closure, the property received repairs and updates.

Administrator Wayne Yates said the Carriage House gift shop is in the process of being remodeled. He noted that he would be carrying Grand Millennial and other vintage and antique pieces.

He said the transformation of the Carriage House into a standalone gift shop was part of a new strategy for Adsmore.

“We hope this will happen so that we can generate additional revenue to meet Adsmore’s needs for the projects,” Yates said.

He said an inventory reduction sale is scheduled for October 7-9. The sale will allow Yates to acquire new merchandise, freeing up space to update and refine the store’s inventory.

Yates and Adsmore staff are planning a formal reopening in November, which will mark Adsmore’s 35th anniversary. He noted that the conditions of the COVID-19 pandemic determine operations and final dates.

Thursday, Friday and Saturday are fiscally viable operating days, Yates said. He is aware that the local economy is recovering, as is Adsmore.

The guides, who act as tour guides and museum park educators, are also eager to return.

Barbara Giannini has been with Adsmore since 2010. Her fascination with Adsmore stems from the authenticity associated with the house.

She is intrigued by the local history. Giannini said the Adsmore house is filled with nostalgic goods handed down from generation to generation. She said museum patrons can be transported to the sticker on display.

Giannini and Yates agreed that the Adsmore property had similar qualities and characteristics to Downton Abbey, a television drama series depicting English estates from the turn of the 20th century.

Katharine Roberta Garrett and her husband took possession of the Adsmore property in the early 1900s. Adsmore House and Gardens opened to the public in 1986.

Garrett bequeathed a trust fund to the Caldwell County Library Board, which acts as a tax agent. Yates said Adsmore’s operations are supported by the trust fund.

Carriage Park residents say they face 400% sewer rate hike | New https://thecarriagehse.com/carriage-park-residents-say-they-face-400-sewer-rate-hike-new/ https://thecarriagehse.com/carriage-park-residents-say-they-face-400-sewer-rate-hike-new/#respond Tue, 21 Sep 2021 05:15:00 +0000 https://thecarriagehse.com/carriage-park-residents-say-they-face-400-sewer-rate-hike-new/

Residents of West Paducah’s Carriage Park neighborhood met on Monday to discuss what they say is an issue affecting the neighborhood’s 39 households: Monthly sewer rates are rising by more than 400%.

Some residents have told The Sun their sewer bills have risen from around $ 16 per month to almost $ 86 per month. The change came after Bluegrass Water, which now owns the sewage system, was authorized by the Kentucky Civil Service Commission in August to increase the rates for water and sewer services.

Many of the people who live in the neighborhood, and most of the residents who attended the Monday meeting, are retirees. Some of them expressed concern to The Sun that they could afford this increased monthly wastewater costs since they live on a fixed income.

“When I bought the house, if I had known that I was going to have to pay this exorbitant amount for the sewer, I probably would have [thought twice before buying the house]”said Sharon Morse, a retiree who lives in Carriage Park.

Bluegrass Water, part of St. Louis-based Central States Water Resources, purchased the sewer system that serves the neighborhood in 2020.

The sewage system, built by developer Sharon Sanderson, was originally a neighborhood association. Each house in the Carriage Park neighborhood has a septic tank. Solid waste collects at the bottom of the septic tanks and the water, called gray water, is removed from the tank. The Carriage Park sewage system is a passive system, which means water moves by gravity from the septic tanks to a lagoon behind the neighborhood.

Homeowners received notices last month that starting with the August billing period, rates would increase. In a letter, a resident supplied to The Sun, residential units in Carriage Park, along with 15 other subdivision sewer systems owned by Bluegrass, will be billed $ 85.97 per month.

In the November 2020 letter, Bluegrass Water initially proposed an increase in Carriage Park that would bring its monthly total for single residential units to $ 96.14 per month. The company also offered the same rate for 18 other subdivision sewer systems in Kentucky.

Residents of Carriage Park said they believe the system they have does not justify the new monthly total and that their costs for their systems should not be lumped together with other sewage systems in different parts. of State.

“We are subsidizing subdivisions that require a lot of construction and will cost a lot of money, according to the company,” said Mike Legendre, resident of Carriage Park.

When Bluegrass Water first acquired the system and others in neighboring counties, including the Timberland neighborhood next to Carriage Park, company officials said in a June 2020 press release that they “would continue to charge customers the same rates as the old system owners.” A few months later, in October, Bluegrass Water began the legal process to increase rates with the Kentucky Civil Service Commission.

Josiah Cox, president of Bluegrass Water, told The Sun that the company typically buys “small and environmentally compromised” systems, which are either broken or non-compliant. Cox said the process for requesting a rate increase was “arduous” and that the burden of proof for the reasons for rate increases rests with the utility provider.

A letter to residents said the Carriage Park sewage system was “unable to handle sewage due to poor condition of the facility and signs of failure.”

When asked if the system was not in compliance when the Sewer System Act was signed, Sanderson said it was “absolutely wrong.” She said the natural system had previously had a problem with beavers building dams near the lagoon where the sewage drains, but the beavers have been removed from the system.

The letter also described improvements the company planned to make if approved by the Civil Service Commission, including repairing the fence around the lagoon, repairing the berm, leaching field and animal damage, paving a new lagoon access road, hiring professional operators and providing 24/7 assistance. In total, Bluegrass Water said it plans to invest more than $ 106,000.

When The Sun visited the lagoon, there was a fence around what appears to be minimal animal damage. The unpaved access road to Carriage Park crossed a wooded area and a stream. There was a gravel road leading from Timberland, the neighboring area of ​​Carriage Park, to the lagoon.

Sanderson told The Sun that she had been approached by Bluegrass Water with an offer to buy the sewer system. Sanderson said she emailed residents of Carriage Park advising them of a meeting with Bluegrass Water, and she informed residents that she wanted to step away from monitoring the sewage system. She said four residents showed up to this meeting in 2019 and they approved Bluegrass Water.

Sanderson said Bluegrass Water has proven to be caring and accommodating. When she and other neighborhood developers who handed over their sewage systems to Bluegrass Water discovered the potential tariff increase, Sanderson said she hired a lawyer to oppose the increases with the Commission de la Kentucky Public Service.

Cox said Bluegrass Water is investigating an income-based program that was established during the COVID-19 pandemic to potentially help residents who are unable to pay the new, higher bills.

There needs to be a change that could truly benefit residents and people here – a change that the current government has heard. “

Suzanne Cowan, National President of the Liberal Party of Canada, visited the Meet the Candidates event in Tillsonburg on Wednesday to support Quinto.

Previously, she knocked on doors in Ingersoll with Ahmed Hussen, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development, who helped shape the affordable child care policy promoted by the Liberals.

“That’s what they want to tell the residents here – we support you, we support you, we listen and we support our candidates,” Quinto said. “This is about watching our constituency where for so long I feel it has been overlooked. We need more funding, we need more services. We are getting a lot of support from the federal government, but it is time we were put on the map.

“I am here to defend Tillsonburg and the County of Oxford and I look forward, if elected, to bring Tillsonburg and Oxford to government.”

Quinto, who said she was not only the liberal Oxford candidate in 2021, but that she would also run in the next election, said the country needs to emerge from the pandemic crisis.

“They (the Liberals) are the only ones with a comprehensive plan to make it happen. If you look at the platform, if you look at the politics online, you can see that there is something for all Canadians because we have to move forward together. We must move forward for everyone.

“I’m here for people to trust me, and I know I have to earn their respect, and I’m up to the challenge,” Quinto summed up. “I am here to work hard and I am here to work hard for the people of Oxford.”

POPULAR PARTY OF CANADA

Wendy Martin, federal candidate for the People’s Party of Canada in Oxford, said the PPC wants to balance the budget, “so that we can put more money in the pockets of Canadians and increase the wealth and prosperity for all.”

“We cannot lose them now, we cannot lose any rights because of fear. Let’s just respect each person’s personal decision so that we can experience the virus and come out in the end and still have friends. “

CHRISTIAN HERITAGE FESTIVAL

Allen Scovil, federal candidate for the Oxford Christian Heritage Party, said the CHP’s main focus is on early and end-of-life issues and on strengthening families.

“We think they (the families) have been too fragmented and torn apart,” Scovil said. “We have to heal them, basically.

“And we are trying to regain our freedoms. All this vaccine passport business and what they call “culture cancellation” deprives us of our freedoms. We need to get them back so that we can live the way God intended us to live.

“We have to make things fairer. We need the wealthiest people to bear their tax burden. There are too many stories of rich people hiding their money abroad not to pay their fair share of running the country. We have to make it fairer. “

Scovil said it is also important to have a justice system that works in a fair and equitable manner, “not as politically as it has been recently”.

NEW DEMOCRATIC PARTY

Matthew Chambers, the federal NDP candidate in Oxford, with five days remaining in a 36-day election campaign, noted that the 2021 election was unique.

“I say it every time, ‘Let’s be clear – this was an election that wasn’t asked, that wasn’t wanted,” Chambers said. “Two-thirds of Canadians have made it clear that they don’t think holding an election during a pandemic is a good idea.

“And here we are.

“Since we are in this election, we have a choice. We can stick with the status quo, that Canada has been playing ping-pong between two different parties for 154 years, and just isn’t getting people the results they need, or we can go for a alternative which is actually working for people and putting people first.

Chambers said the NDP wanted more affordable housing, health care and expanded child care. And make the rich pay their fair share.

“And then there is a whole series of issues that relate to rural Canada. Rural connectivity. I’ve lost track of the times I’ve been in the country and lost my cell signal and internet signal and it’s driving me up the wall. We need affordable and reliable high speed internet in this country. And cell service – we need to stop bowing to cell phone tycoons and cap cell phone bill prices. We know cellphones are a luxury, but they are also an essential tool for everyone, whether it is someone who works downtown or someone who works in the fields on a farm. We have to be able to communicate and talk to people. It’s just essential to life now.

Chambers also discussed the supply management system and food security issues.

“I think it’s going to get worse before it gets better. We’re going to see more and more substandard product from the United States coming into Canada, and that’s going to start to put even more pressure on our dairy producers and primary producers. The rules as they are now are not well enforced because people at the borders do not have the funding or the manpower to enforce these rules. And these rules themselves are full of loopholes.

“It’s about time we had someone in Ottawa standing up and speaking, not just a few times here and there and before an election. We need someone who is there by our side and who fights for us every day.

“And if I’m lucky enough to be elected, then I have every intention of opening a constituency office in Tillsonburg,” Chambers said. “And keep it open.”

CONSERVATIVE PARTY OF CANADA

Dave MacKenzie, federal Conservative incumbent from Oxford, who received 48% of the constituency votes in the 2019 election, said 2021 does not compare to any other election due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We’re very, very respectful of people’s space, so we don’t knock on doors,” MacKenzie said.

“In this election, there are no rallies as such. What we all want to do is something sweet, respecting people, socially distancing. “

Many conservative signs can be seen in the community, both in Tillsonburg and in the surrounding rural areas.

“It’s hard to find volunteers because they have the same concerns, and it’s hard to get someone to sit at the desk. They don’t know if people are vaccinated, ”he said, noting that his daughter had tried to run the office while running her business. “Having said that, we are doing very well. “

Speaking to voters, MacKenzie said he hears how people don’t want an election right now. He recalled a May 25 vote in the House of Commons that said “We will not hold elections during the pandemic” and that holding elections during a pandemic would be irresponsible. This vote was 327-1, almost unanimous.

“People are upset,” MacKenzie said. “(Justin) Trudeau voted for him too. So it’s interesting from that point of view.
