One little girl is trying to make a difference for children in her community. Matia Linkletter, 10, added a children’s book section to the Lions Club's community library. “I thought of this idea because I know I have a lot of books I already read, and other kids probably do too,” said Linkletter. “They can exchange books they have read for new ones. I will weekly organize the books on the shelf by rainbow colour." Linkletter has been working with her father, Tom Linkletter, to build the shelf. She reached out to Wellington County Coun. Jeff Duncan, who brought it up at a meeting with the Hillsburgh growing committee to see if they can fund her project to purchase supplies. “The place for it to go would be to attach it to the post directly under the existing library cabinet,” said Duncan. “That way, we do not have to wait for spring to put it on its post, and there is not a lot of space on that area. It should be deep enough easy for one row of books.” Matia was instructed not to make the doors out of glass. Instead, she used plexiglass. They had a choice to make them either opaque or translucent. This was to ensure heavy and wet snow in the winter does not break it. A big snowstorm can crack through a glass door. "The Lions Club, the Let’s Get Hillsburgh Growing Committee (LGHG), and I just thought this was a neat project on a number of levels,” said Duncan. “Having someone step up to lend a hand and take action on something and not jump to social media to complain was a fantastic life lesson. The child and Dad working together on the project were neat, and helping out the other kids in the community is the fun end benefit.” A committee Duncan is involved with liked the idea and gave Matia and her father money to purchase supplies. The Lions Club jumped on board to give their permission and will donate some kids' books,” said Duncan. “The Let’s Get Hillsburgh Growing Committee committed to pay for the supplies bought at the local Hillsburgh Timber Mart. With this setup, they were ready to go. The project is complete, it's built solid and looks great!" Duncan requested Linkletter get permission from the Hillsburgh Lions Club to ensure they are okay with it being on their post under their existing library. The club will also donate to East Wellington Community Services (EWCS) that has a used bookstore. They are going to buy the children’s books to stock the library.

Shelburne will direct $500 from its allocated grant budget to help the Headwaters Food and Farming Alliance (HFFA) with printing costs for a pandemic-related publication. Shelburne council approved the funding at its meeting Monday. Grand Valley council will consider a request for the same amount at Tuesday's meeting. “Ordinarily, this will be one of the things captured in our community grant funding program, but this year, as I believe in the past couple of years, we have kept some money in the reserves in that account for requests such as this to come outside of the application process,” said Mayor Wade Mills. The HFFA is a community-based collaborative project focused on creating a healthy and sustainable food system in Dufferin County and Caledon. This year, the HFFA will add new farms and information such as order online to the leaflet. Money is requested to help cover costs to print 5,000 copies of the Pandemic Paradox, a publication developed by the coalition. Carey Holmes, director of financial services and treasurer, said the reserve fund contains $3,300. Nobody has withdrawn from it so far this year. The guide provides information on sourcing food, food security, where food came from, and contacting local farmers to acquire fresh, healthy food during the COVID-19 pandemic safely. In supporting the move, Coun. Walter Benotto explained the HFFA is a good organization the town should be assisting. He made the motion to move it forward, with Coun. Lindsay Wegner seconding it. The HFFA is a project of Headwaters Communities in Action (HCIA). It is managed by an organizing committee of representatives from the agricultural sector, municipal councils, public health and stakeholders at large. The HFFA has several projects, including Headwaters Food Charter and Action Plan launched in 2017, Farm to School Programs launched in 2014, Headwaters Farm Fresh Guide, a bimonthly newsletter and various events and fundraisers. Farmers set up online stores, sourced food from neighbouring farms and created food boxes for contactless pick up in the first year of the crisis. Headwaters distributed 45,000 copies in 2020.

LAS VEGAS — Alex Tuch scored the winner in a shootout and the streaking Vegas Golden Knights beat San Jose 3-2 on Monday night as Sharks forward Patrick Marleau passed Gordie Howe for the most games played in NHL history. Robin Lehner stopped 29 shots and the Golden Knights won their seventh in a row, overcoming a two-goal deficit behind a pair of power-play goals from captain Mark Stone. The 41-year-old Marleau played in his 1,768th career game to break Howe’s record in front of a sold-out crowd of 3,950 that included his wife, Christina, and four sons. That wouldn’t have been possible in San Jose, where fans still aren’t allowed in the arena during the pandemic. Martin Jones made 38 saves for the Sharks, including five spectacular game-saving stops in overtime. Lehner, who stopped all three San Jose attempts in the shootout, improved to 8-0-1 since returning from a concussion on March 19. The Sharks opened the scoring on Marleau’s historic night when Vegas’ Shea Theodore turned the puck over with a breakout pass along the boards that was gathered by Nikolai Knyzhov, who then fired a shot from the point past Lehner. Just 29 seconds into the second period, it was Noah Gregor corralling a loose pick, spinning and firing from the right circle with a shot that appeared to glance off Lehner’s glove and gave the Sharks a 2-0 advantage. It wouldn’t last long, though, as Theodore’s wrist shot from the blue line was deflected perfectly by Stone, who was camped at the doorstep and found the top shelf on Jones’ blocker side to cut San Jose’s lead in half. Vegas thought it tied the game when newcomer Mattias Janmark was in front of the crease to put one home, but a quick whistle was blown as Jones was covering the puck and the goal was disallowed. Stone scored his second goal of the night just seven seconds into another power play, when he scooped the puck around the crease, and Jones, to the far side to tie the game with his 17th of the season. William Karlsson came close to giving Vegas a 3-2 lead with 14 seconds left, when his wrist shot trickled past Jones, but Sharks defenceman Mario Ferraro was there to slap the puck away as it neared the goal line.

The Town of Shelburne has been granted funds for enhanced pandemic-related training for its fire department. On Monday, council directed staff to transfer $6,600 in grant funding to the Shelburne and District Fire Department to support increased training opportunities. “It will appear on our budget as an in-and-out carry,” said Mayor Wade Mills. “We’re the ones that have to enter in the agreement.” The municipality will need to spend the money by Aug. 1. Formalization of the grant allocation and the transfer payment agreement was required by council at a regular meeting. “There are reporting requirements, but the fire chief (Ralph Snyder) will assist us with filling out that paperwork when the time comes,” said Carey Holmes, director of financial services and treasurer. Ontario’s government is providing $5 million in funding to help municipal fire services address the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The province created the municipal fire protection grant to provide critical support to municipalities to offset costs and potential barriers for issues stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic. This may include access to training and equipment or other essential upgrades needed at the local level. Fire departments vary in size and capacity, and they all serve different communities that each present different levels of risk. Each municipality had an opportunity to submit proposals on behalf of their fire service for an initial $4,500 base grant, plus additional funding dependent on the population served. The Shelburne fire service has expressed concerns with training and fire code compliance since the start of the pandemic. Some of these concerns include critical inspections being delayed or impacted given the apprehension with entering premises. Similarly, training has been impacted given that fire services have been responding to challenges associated with the pandemic, such as staffing shortages and increased calls for service. Many departments continued training online as the fire marshal's office enhanced its online course availability at the start of the pandemic. Shelburne council supports municipalities in increasing speeding fines Shelburne council directed the town to endorse a circulating appeal for the province to stiffen penalties for speeding. Melancthon council asked Shelburne to support an initiative by the Town of Mono calling for the provincial government to consider the immediate increase of the basic fines for speeding, as there has not been an increase in more than 20 years. “Speeding and reckless driving remain a chronic and disturbing reality on many of our roads,” said Mono Mayor Laura Ryan. Coun. Lindsay Wegner voiced her support to the two municipalities. Coun. Walter Benotto seconded the motion. The councils support the use of automated speed enforcement to improve road safety and municipal roads. “The amount of fines should be increased to a level that will provide a deterrent commensurate with the risk such offenders pose to the safety and well-being of other drivers and pedestrians,” said Ryan. Ryan notes sufficient revenues only partly offset municipal policing costs. There has been a decline in revenue with the closure of the provincial offences courts. “I know we have the decrease, and I know deputy mayor John Creelman (of Mono) has been very vocal in trying to get those fines increased,” said Benotto.

SAN DIEGO — Brandon Woodruff and three relievers combined on a two-hitter and Luis Urias homered in his return to Petco Park before leaving with an injury as the Milwaukee Brewers beat Joe Musgrove and the San Diego Padres 3-1 Monday night. Billy McKinney also homered off Musgrove (2-2), who set a career-high with 13 strikeouts in his first home start since throwing the Padres' first no-hitter on April 9 at Texas. The big right-hander, who grew up in suburban El Cajon, is 0-2 since throwing the no-no. Pinch-hitter Tyrone Taylor hit Milwaukee's third homer of the night, off Drew Pomeranz, leading off the eighth. Musgrove made just two mistakes and both went over the right field wall. Urias homered on Musgrove's first pitch of the third, his second, to tie the game at 1. McKinney homered with one out in the fifth for a 2-1 lead. It was his first. Musgrove allowed two runs and four hits in seven innings while walking one. His previous career high for strikeouts was 11 against St. Louis on Sept. 20 while he was with Pittsburgh. He was traded to his hometown Padres on Jan. 19. Musgrove also caught a liner right back at him by Jackie Bradley Jr. in the sixth. Woodruff (1-0) held San Diego to one run and one hit in six innings, struck out seven and walked three. The only hit he allowed was a single by Jake Cronenworth in the first, one batter before Fernando Tatis Jr. hit an RBI groundout. J.P. Feyereisen walked one in the seventh, Brent Suter gave up a single to Caratini in the eighth and Josh Hader pitched the ninth for his second save. Urias, who played with the Padres in 2018-19, was back at Petco Park for the first time since being traded to Milwaukee along with left-hander Eric Lauer for outfielder Trent Grisham and starter Zach Davies on Nov. 27, 2019. The Padres sent Davies and four prospects to the Chicago Cubs for Yu Darvish and Victor Caratini on Dec. 29. Urias left with a calf injury in the fourth.

CUT OFF, La. — The search for survivors from a capsized lift boat in the Gulf of Mexico has closed and attention now turns to comforting the loved ones of the five known dead and eight missing, a grim hunt for bodies and a painstaking investigation that could take up to two years. Seven days after the Seacor Power capsized in rough waters on April 12 while it was travelling about eight miles off the Louisiana coast, the Coast Guard on Monday suspended the search and rescue operation for the eight people still missing from the vessel. All told, the searched had covered 9,000 square miles (23,000 square kilometres) of waters off Louisiana. Nineteen people were on board the vessel. Six were rescued on the first day. Five bodies have been pulled from the sea or from the ship by divers. For the families, it has been a brutal wait to find out what happened. Many of them gathered twice daily for updates from officials. “We just feel so blessed that we are able to take him home, and we hope for the rest of the families that they are able to take their loved ones home, too,” said Frank Boeckl, whose nephew, Lawrence J. Warren, was the fifth body pulled from the ship. Warren was from Terrytown, one of the many workers who come to Port Fourchon, the sprawling complex in southeastern Louisiana that is home to the vast array of boats, helicopters and other equipment that services the oil and gas industry in the Gulf of Mexico. From there, workers head out to oil rigs or other jobs, often for weekslong shifts. The president of Seacor Marine, which owned the boat, vowed Monday that they would do everything in their power to find the remaining people. John Gellert said 17 divers were on site, and they are about halfway through the vessel as of midday Monday. Gellert also said that divers from a company Seacor contracts with were on the scene four hours after the ship capsized. “We are steadfast in our efforts to return those who remain missing,” Gellert said. But he added that efforts will depend on the weather, not just on the surface but below the surface. “The currents are currently very strong. That will determine diving windows. When we are able to dive we will dive continuously.” In that part of the Gulf visibility may also be an issue. Sediment carried down from the Mississippi River makes the Gulf’s waters murky much of the time. In addition, storms can stir up the muddy bottom at much greater depth than the area where the Seacor Power is located. In the shallow waters off Louisiana, “it’s almost always poor visibility to none,” said Scott Anderson, president of Logan Diving and Salvage in Jacksonville, Florida. He estimated that in the area where the Seacor Power overturned, visibility would be a couple of feet even with the aid of lighting. It could be as long as two years before the National Transportation and Safety Board comes up with a final determination of what happened to the Seacor Power and why. But during a news conference Monday, Seacor's president gave some information about what the company knows so far. A key question has been the weather. Gellert said while there were warnings of bad weather, what the boat actually encountered when it was offshore was significantly worse than expected. “The weather they were forecasted to encounter was well within the limits of the vessel. The weather that they encountered was well beyond the forecast, as far as we know, at this time," he said. Gellert said the decision on whether to go or not was entirely up to the captain, but he emphasized that the captain had the company’s full support. The captain, David Ledet, 63, was among the dead. “He was one of our best captains. He was very prudent and conservative,” he said. The coroner’s office has identified the other four people whose bodies have been recovered: Anthony Hartford, 53, of New Orleans; James Wallingsford, 55, of Gilbert, Louisiana; Ernest Williams, 69, of Arnaudville; and the 36-year-old Warren. The Seacor Power is a lift boat. Such vessels have three legs that can be lowered to the sea floor to raise the ship off the water to serve as a temporary offshore platform. The boats are often used in the offshore oil industry. When they are travelling, the legs stick straight up in the air. Gellert said it appeared the legs were fully retracted — meaning all the way up and a position he described as its “most vulnerable” — at the beginning of the voyage, but there are indications that the captain was trying to lower the legs when the ship capsized. “As far as we can make out there was about five feet of leg that was retracted from the hull, which leads us to believe the captain was starting, trying to jack down,” said Gellert. He said it takes about a minute to move the legs down five feet. The ship capsized in about 50 to 55 feet (about 15 to 17 metres) of water. __ Associated Press reporters Rebecca Santana and Janet McConnaughey in New Orleans contributed to this report.

Despite a province-wide stay-at-home order, there are still many people who continue to travel. One Woodbridge family drives to their farm in Erin five days a week, saying their work is essential. “I have to be here,” said Peter Benevides. “I have chickens, I have my bees in the back, and I’m in the process of growing some plants in the greenhouse that will go into the ground in another three to four weeks. I can’t arbitrarily decide not to come. I must be here. There are other people in the same position I am in.” The family grows vegetables, garlics, onions, maintain beehives and cares for chickens. Benevides comes every day for various farm-related chores, including scaring off coyotes and animals. His wife, Santa Adamo, works for Toronto Public Health while his son, Peter Benevides junior attends Emily Car Public School. Benevides said he would like to move to Erin, but uprooting his son in the middle of a school semester and his wife during a pandemic is impractical. “If I had a choice to move up here, I’d be in this region, in a blink of an eye, but I have my hands tied,” said Benevides. “I am restricted to what I can do.” The provincial government declared the third lockdown because of increasing risks from COVID-19 variants on April 8. "More needs to be done to protect against the threats to our health system resources and the continued health and safety of individuals and families across the province," Christine Elliott, deputy premier and minister of health, said in the announcement. The province states case rates, hospitalizations, and intensive care unit occupancy are increasing rapidly, threatening to overwhelm the health care system. The number of COVID-19 hospitalizations in the province has increased by 28.2 per cent, while patients in intensive care escalate by 25 per cent between the period March 28 and April 5, 2021. “To help stop the spread of COVID-19 and safeguard health system capacity, Ontarians are strongly urged to continue staying at home and limit trips outside their household and between other regions for essential reasons only,” said Alexandra Hilkene, press secretary to the deputy premier and minister of health. “Individuals should remain in their local communities and avoid all non-essential travel even within the province and stay home when ill even with mild symptoms. Employers in all industries should make every effort to allow employees to work from home.” The stay-at-home order requires everyone to remain at home except for essential purposes, such as going to the grocery store or pharmacy, accessing health care services, getting vaccinated, for outdoor exercise, or for work that they cannot do remotely. The farm belongs to Adamo’s family. Her father and uncle used to keep it up in the past, but Benevides does that for her now. “We eat most of what we grow, sell some to cover my costs, and when there is excess, we donate to people who need it or a food bank where they can receive it,” said Benevides. Retired from his career, Benevides said he finds it therapeutic to be out on the farm away from the urban noise of the city. “I was involved in a work accident in 2014 which left me with permanent nerve damage which gives me constant pain,” said Benevides. “This is therapeutic to me and helps me in many ways. The family, especially my son Peter, loves to come out here and enjoy the fresh air and nature, along with some physical exercise.” He comes to find peace at the farm as it allows him to relieve stress and cope with his condition. Story behind the story: After learning about the stay-at-home order, the Advocate reached out to the Benevides to hear how they would manage their farm in Erin despite living in Woodbridge.

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Adolis García homered and doubled off Dylan Bundy, Kohei Arihara took a shutout into the sixth inning and the Texas Rangers got their offence on track in a 6-4 win over the Los Angeles Angels on Monday night. Texas eclipsed its entire output during a three-game home series against Baltimore over the weekend, when it totalled just four runs. Justin Upton homered for the Angels, while Bundy (0-2) gave up five runs and seven hits and was knocked out the game during the Rangers’ five-run sixth inning. The right-hander had six strikeouts with two walks. Arihara (2-1), in his fourth major league start, retired Angels star Shohei Ohtani in two at-bats, although one was a deep fly to centre that García caught while crashing into the padded wall. Arihara and Ohtani were teammates in Japan with the Nippon Ham Fighters from 2015-17. Arihara (2-1) gave up just two hits over 5 2/3 scoreless innings with two walks and six strikeouts. Ian Kennedy pitched the ninth inning for his fourth save. In just his seventh game this season and second start in centre field, García made a case for more playing time when he got to Bundy for a third inning home run, reaching the seats in right-centre for a 1-0 lead. It was his second home run of the season. The Rangers widened their advantage in the sixth. Nick Solak started the scoring with a single to right field, as Joey Gallo came to the plate only after the Angels’ Jared Walsh failed to field the ball cleanly for an error. Willie Calhoun had an RBI single, forcing Bundy from the game, and Jose Trevino followed with a sacrifice fly. García reached on a fielding error by third baseman Luis Rengifo that allowed Calhoun to score, and Brock Holt brought home the fifth run of the inning with a single. The Angels failed to gain any traction offensively early after not playing the previous two days because of COVID-19 issues with their scheduled opponent, the Minnesota Twins. The unexpected downtime was a concern of Angels manager Joe Maddon before the game. “We weren’t needing it, we weren’t wanting it but it had to happen that way,” said Maddon, who admitted that his pitchers probably were the group impacted the most. “Later in the year that might have been welcomed. It wasn’t as welcomed right now.” Albert Pujols singled in a run to cut Texas’ advantage to 6-2 in the seventh. The slow-footed Los Angeles star managed to steal third base without a slide later in the inning, getting a big jump when Rangers pitcher Kyle Cody stopped paying attention to him. Pujols scored on a single by Kurt Suzuki, and Jose Iglesias scored on Cody's wild pitch, making it 6-4. JUST A PITCH MAN Ohtani will not be performing double duty when he returns to the mound Tuesday against the Rangers. The Angels’ right-hander will start for the first time since April 4 after working his way through a blister issue on the middle finger of his throwing hand. Maddon said Ohtani will not bat because he is on a 75-pitch limit and the club doesn't want to burn its designated hitter. DON’T WALK The Rangers’ run of consecutive innings without allowing a walk ended at 27 when Arihara gave up a free pass to Walsh in the second inning. The 27 innings without giving up a free pass was the longest for the Rangers since another 27-inning streak April 10-13, 2012. TRAINER’S ROOM Angels: 3B Anthony Rendon (groin) began light baseball activity, hitting off a tee and working in the field. There remains no timetable for his exact return, but Maddon said, “I don’t think it’s far down the road.” UP NEXT Ohtani (0-0, 1.93 ERA) will face the Rangers for the first time in his career, while making his 14th major league start. He will square off against Rangers right-hander Jordan Lyles (1-0, 4.70), who has given up six of his eight runs this season on home runs. ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/hub/MLB Doug Padilla, The Associated Press

They're popular places to grab a brewski or two on spacious patios, and now they're on the market. Both the Orangeville and Grand Valley locations of Mill Creek Pub and Restaurant are up for sale. The establishments, which have liquor licences and full kitchens, are known for their outdoor dining options. “Half the people either had an experience on the patio themselves or are just enamoured by the fact it is three storeys,” said manager Donnie Beattie, whose parents, Don and Loraine Beattie, own the restaurants and are planning to retire. “We decided we would help staff in the pandemic, so we took back ownership and ran the place. Now that the pandemic is starting to ease up, my parents are ready to retire,” Beattie said. The Orangeville location, at 25 Mill St., is 6,500 square feet and seats 182 people inside, plus 120 people on the patio. It is available for $449,000. The Grand Valley location, at 30 Main St., is 2,480 square feet and seats 116 inside, plus an additional 16 on the patio. It is available for $199,000. Beattie would like the new owners to continue the namesake, as it has a footprint in Dufferin County. “What you’re going to buy is the business,” said Beattie. “Coming up with something new might not be the best business decision unless you’re coming in as a chain. I don’t think you’re going to see a chain coming. It will most likely be a family that continues the Mill Creek Pub.” Beattie said it was a difficult decision to give up the reins, as they had run the restaurant in Orangeville for eight years. The establishment has a storied history. The Orangeville location was previously Orangeville Bottling Works, owned by Alexander Walker, who made and sold whistle orange soda. The Beattie family took over the building in 2012 and made substantial changes. Everything was renovated from top to bottom, leaving only the brick walls for historical significance. They have been active in the community, donating to the Bethell Hospice Foundation and hosting Brewzapalooza, a popular craft beer festival in the winter in Orangeville. “I know it’s going to be bittersweet for them because they do love being part of the community and heading a lot of stuff," said Beattie. "However, there’s always a time and place, and we finally hit ours. It’s time to allow the next generation to take over all the events.” They were involved with the Orangeville Blues and Jazz festival, during which they would have musicians playing at their pub. “We had a big impact when it came to the Blues and Jazz festival in Orangeville,” said Beattie. “Here in Grand Valley, we started in conjunction with the BIA, yearly car shows. We had the first one off the ground, and of course, the pandemic hit. We’re hoping to get a second one later on in the summer.” The Grand Valley location opened in June 2018, after being home to many different establishments in the past. It was recently Houley’s Sports Bar and Grill, but was also well known as Robbie’s and The Olde Tavern. A bar and restaurant were on the main floor, while a dance hall was upstairs. The dance hall is now apartments, and the basement has become coolers, freezers and dry storage for the restaurant above. Joshua Santos, Local Journalism Initiative reporter, Orangeville Banner
