Important Federal Election on Oct. 19th - We all need to vote

Posted September 25, 2015 @ 1:52PM

by Richard Rosenthal

Read Biz X Magazine Here

Those of you who have known me for many years probably know that I have been a Liberal and worked for that party for many years supporting such local candidates as Herb Gray, David Peterson, Paul Martin Sr. and many other good people over the years. I have also supported individuals who were not Liberals such as Jane Boyd and Louis Parent who ran for the Conservatives Provincially and people like Bert Weeks who was an NDP candidate that I supported municipally but not Federally.
When I supported non-Liberal candidates it was because their individual skills and attraction outweighed party interests and they were friends who asked me for their support.
We all have grown older, and hopefully wiser, and this has changed our outlook on some things including politics.  I am lucky because I live in Windsor-Tecumseh where an outstanding individual, Jo-Anne Gignac, is representing the Conservatives.
This is an excellent convergence of an excellent proven local politician who has worked hard for Windsor and shown herself to have her home city in her heart and a Federal Conservative party who I have come to believe is the right answer for Canada now. They have proven their worth in that our economy is one of the best in the world, taxes have been reduced and benefits to help people raise their families have been increased. Their international policies make sense and their leader is an honest, if not socially dynamic, individual who generally thinks before he plunges into things. 
Are there still problems? Of course there are, and will continue to be, but I see no solutions coming from the other two leading parties that make sense to me. I see knee-jerk reactions to issues like the Syrian refugee issue that will not make long-term sense. The typical promise to improve the economy by running a deficit has never made sense to me and even the NDP who have been known to lean this way are rejecting it. 
So for me, Oct. 19th will not require a lot of soul searching. I want to see our hard working local candidate, Jo-Anne Gignac represent us in the next Conservative government.
You don't have to agree with me but please think about the issues and vote with your brain for whoever you think will best keep Canada the great place it is.

Hawkfest Sept 12 & 13: Sept 19 & 20!

Posted September 8, 2015 @ 10:49PM

It’s not every day you get to experience one of nature’s great migrations, let alone one that happens in your own backyard.  Ranking in the top three hawk watching spots in North America, the Holiday Beach Conservation Area’s unique geography and location makes for a grand spectacle every year as tens of thousands of birds of prey make their annual journey to nesting grounds in the south.

 In recognition of their arduous journey, the Essex Region Conservation Authority (ERCA), in partnership with the Holiday Beach Migration Observatory (HBMO), will celebrate with Hawk Festival 2015. The festival, which runs over the second and third weekends of September, brings together bird and other wildlife experts to share their expertise with budding naturalists, seasoned pros, and members of the general public.

“The Hawk Festival really has something for everybody, as we strive to make it appealing to everyone from experienced birders to people who just want to get outside and learn something new,” explained ERCA’s Director of Community Outreach Services Danielle Stuebing. “Regardless of your level of knowledge, the migration of thousands of raptors is a spectacle not to be missed.”

One of the most unique elements of the HawkFest is the ongoing banding and research conducted by the HBMO, which allowed Holiday Beach to become designated as an Important Bird Area of global significance.  Whether you are an expert or novice birder, the opportunity to see these magnificent raptors weighed, measured, and banded, and then released back into the wild, is a spectacular moment that visitors will remember for years to come. 

“We also look forward to welcoming our neighbours from across the border, who can enjoy the favourable exchange rate while taking in the fantastic migration,” Stuebing said, adding many Americans already cross the border to enjoy the festival.

The Festival, which runs from 9am to 3pm on September 12-13 and 19-20, offers ongoing programming and a number of educational “walks & talks”.  Full day offerings include: HBMO experts identifying hawks from the Hawk Tower, bird banding and adoptions, live hawk displays care of Kingsport Environmental and Wild Ontario, and a bird-centred smart phone scavenger hunt.

The educational programs are wide ranging. HBMO President Bob Pettit will give an introduction to identifying hawk species, a must for new birders. Jerry Jourdan, of the Erie Shores Birding Association, will demonstrate “digiscoping,” a low-cost solution to photographing distant species. Kory Renaud, of HBMO, will demonstrate the “next generation” of birding with an introduction to new technology and the e-Bird system. Those with an eye for photography can take in talks from professional photographers Glenn Gervais, of Southshore Outdoor Photography, and Ted Kloske, of Henry’s Canada.

All programs are free with the festival admission fee of $15 per vehicle. For a full list of programs and walks & talks, visit www.erca.org/birding.

The best raptor viewing time is from 9 a.m. until noon when the hawks fly low. The Holiday Beach Conservation Area is located on County Road 50, on Lake Erie near Malden Centre approximately 15km southeast of historic Amherstburg, Ontario, Canada, a half hour drive from Highway 401 and only 40 minutes from the Ambassador Bridge for those coming from Detroit.   

Since 1973, the Essex Region Conservation Authority has served as a community-based organization dedicated to protecting, restoring and managing the natural resources of the Essex Region.   See you on the Hawk Tower!

Elvis & Elton Tribute Show at the new Water's Edge Event Centre

Posted August 4, 2015 @ 3:23PM

by Richard Rosenthal

Read Biz X Magazine Here

On August 15 at 7:30pm there is a wonderful tribute show featuring Brian Harris as "Simply Elton" and John Cigan as Elvis. 
This event takes place at the new Water's Edge Event Centre which has been repurposed from a the large church on the corner of Riverside Drive East and Drouillard. It is a beautiful venue with parking and is accessible with an elevator. The building now boasts air conditioning and a long bar.
Reserved seating at tables for the show is available at 28.00 (including service charge) until August 13th. Open seating is available at 22.00 (including service charge) unti August 13th and then will be available at the door for 25.00.
This show creates something that never happened. Elton John was a big Elvis fan and they probably would have done a show together had Elvis lived longer. We have tried to create a "taste" of what that might have been like.
Tickets are available at http://www.windsorkingfest.com/tickets.html or by calling (226) 783-5069.
