Bring on the
Warm Weather
Jaclyn Bennett
Signpost Editor
In towns across Ontario businesses are beginning
to enter into their summer lull. Majority of businesses,
especially in major cities, spend most of the summer
with extra down time, declined sales and minimal hours
worked. Lucky for us, we are not like every other town.
Sauble Beach thrives in the warm weather when people
swarm to get away from the concrete jungle they call home
and enter the serene and beautiful town of Sauble Beach.
A lot of businesses are now renovating, cleaning,
ordering, stocking and hiring to prepare for the May 2-4
weekend that quickly approaches. With so much going on
it would be nice to get a little help don’t you think? That’s
where the Sauble Beach Chamber of Commerce steps in.
A Job Board is now available on www.saublebeach.com for
members of the chamber to post their available positions.
This will make it easier for future employees to find you!
We would also like to remind members to
www.saublebeach.com
visit their listings on www.saublebeach.com to
confirm all information is correct and up to date.
If you changed a phone number, updated your
description, have a special promotion, or just want to
update your photo make sure to let us know. Please make
sure the Chamber has your updated e-mail address as well.
We want to make it easier for your potential
customers to know you exist and where to find you. Some
of you may have been on hiatus all winter but now with
summer approaching you are beginning to think about
them, so shouldn’t your potential customers begin
thinking of you?

Stay Safe while the
Bears Awake
OPP News Portal
Bruce Peninsula
Ontario and the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) are reminding
people to take simple precautions
this spring to prevent attracting
black bears as they come out of hibernation.
Follow these simple instructions to minimize the chances of attracting bears:
The potential for human-bear conflict increases when
there is little natural food available
for bears. If this happens, black
bears will search for other food
sources, such as garbage and bird
feed, which can draw bears to populated areas.
•
Put out garbage only on the
morning of pickup.
•
Store garbage in waste containers with tight-fitting lids.
•
Put away bird feeders. Seed,
suet and nectar also attract bears.
•
Pick fruits and berries as
they ripen -- don’t let them rot on
the ground.
•
Clean outdoor barbecue
grills after each use, including the
grease trap underneath. Bears will
be drawn by smells from great distances, including grease and food
residue on grills.
•
Keep dogs on leash; sometimes bears will follow off-leash
dogs back to you.
Bears entering a populated
area are only a danger if they pose
an immediate threat to your personal safety or that of the general public.

OPEN AIR BURNING BY-LAW 17-2013
South Bruce Peninsula’s Newest
By-Law You Should Know About
Daniel Robinson
Manager of Emergency Services
Town of South Bruce Peninsula
Everyone loves a campfire.
It’s a great place to get people together to share some laughs, stories,
sing songs and eat a smore or two.
We hope that you do continue to enjoy campfires but we also want our
residents and visitors to have a safe
experience in South Bruce Peninsula. This is why we have developed
the new “Open Air Burning By-law
17-2013.”
In the by-law, a campfire is
called a “recreational fire”. It must
be contained in a non-combustible
burning device no larger than 2 feet
x 2 feet x 2 feet. and having a clearance radius of 13 feet (4 meters) or
more. In a recreational fire, you
may only burn CLEAN DRY WOOD,
or commercially produced charcoal
or briquettes. The wood must also
be cut smaller than the burning device.
If you are wanting to burn
brush or natural vegetation, you
must first contact The South Bruce
Peninsula Emergency Services at
519-534-1400 x133. They will first
check your property zoning, burn
pile size and then determine if a
permit is required and can be granted. If your property has a zoning
of R1A/R1B/R2/R3/or R4 under no
circumstances will you be issued a
permit.
YOU MAY ONLY BURN CLEAN
DRY WOOD OR COMMERCIALY
PRODUCED
CHARCOAL
OR
BRIQUETTES.
If you have leaves or grass
clippings, the landfill located at 1249
Sauble Falls Parkway (between Oliphant and Sauble Beach) will accept
drop-offs free of charge. If you have
brush, the landfill has a charge of
$95/ton. Cardboard may be dropped
off at the recycling area in the landfill or in Wiarton’s Louisa St. parking lot.
There are set rules that everyone must follow when burning
no matter the size or location of
the fire and even if you have a per-
mit. There is absolutely no burning during a fire ban. No burning
if winds are above 20km/h, if there
is rain, if there is fog or if there is
a smog alert issued. When you have
a fire, the neighboring properties
must not be adversely affected.
The smoke from your fire must not
blow across roadways which could
hamper driving abilities. You must
always have an effective fire extinguisher large enough to put out the
fire immediately available and the
fire MUST be supervised at all times
by an adult and completely extinguished before leaving the area.
Another aspect to the new
by-law covers “Flying Lanterns.”
They resemble small paper hot-air
balloons fuelled by an open flame.
They are visually appealing but are
potential fire hazards because of
their volatile & unpredictable flight
path. They can easily land on tree
tops, buildings and other combustible properties while still ignited and
potentially cause a fire. It is for this
reason that these items are strictly
prohibited in The Town of South
Bruce Peninsula.
The next time you have a
campfire, try out a ‘healthier’ option
we like to call a “Singing Apple”.
Spear an apple onto your roasting
stick and cook the apple over the
hot coals until the skin is burnt and
the apple ‘sings’. Remove the apple
from the fire and carefully peel off
the burnt skin. Then roll the apple
in cinnamon sugar – A “Singing Apple” makes for a tasty treat!
Habitat
for
Humanity
Grey Bruce is planning a Build in
Sauble Beach. A building lot has been
donated on Frederick Street and the
process for selecting a qualifying
family is underway.
While a start date for
construction has not been set,
Habitat is currently inviting the
community to get involved in this
project. Volunteers are needed
to serve on 4 Committees: Construction, Volunteer, Food, and
Fundraising. These committees will
begin their work prior to construction so everything is in place for
“shovels to go into the ground.” By
using mostly volunteer labour and
donated materials, Habitat is able
to build homes at low-cost, making
them affordable for families who are
currently
struggling
to
make
ends
meet.
An Information Session
about the Sauble Beach Build was
held on Thursday April 23, 2015 at
7pm at the Sauble Beach Community Centre. At this session there was
a presentation about Habitat’s mission and model as well as details on
how people, regardless of their skill
level, can help with this Build.

Recently, major enhancements
to the Advance Payments Program
(APP) designed to improve and
streamline administration, provide
greater flexibility and more repayment options, and ease access to the
program for producers came into
effect. Larry Miller, MP for BruceGrey-Owen Sound, welcomes these
enhancements.
The Advance Payments Program (APP) is a financial loan guarantee program that gives producers
easier access to credit through cash
advances. Advances provide up to
50% of the average market price
producers are expected to receive
for their agricultural product. Producers can receive cash advances of up to $400,000 with the first
$100,000 interest-free for up to 18
months.
New enhancements to the
APP include:
- Producers can receive advances
for all commodities through one
application with a single administrator;
- No requirement for a producer to
be principally occupied in farming;
- A repayment schedule in line with
the perishable date of non-storable
products thereby avoiding the need
for proof of sale;
- Repayment of advances can be
made without proof of sale without
penalty:
- When a producer waits to market
the commodity until conditions are
more favourable; or
- If the agricultural product becomes unmarketable through no
fault of the producer.
These enhancements are
part of the Agricultural Growth Act
which modernizes and strengthens
federal agriculture legislation, supports innovation in the Canadian
agriculture industry and enhances
global market opportunities.
“The changes to the Advance Payments Program that recently took effect will give farmers
in Bruce and Grey counties a more
flexible tool to manage their cash
flow and will be in place in time to
help producers plan for the upcoming production year,” said Miller.
“These changes will cut red tape,
make the program easier to access,
and create flexible repayment options for all farmers.”
We want to ensure the safety and security of our residents and
visitors. Remember to check your
smoke alarms, and the expiry date
on your fire extinguisher. Stay safe
and most of all have fun!

Kim Mizen
Sauble Trading Post
The Sauble Trading Post will
open Friday, May 15, 2015 after a
fire caused extensive damage last
summer. Kevin Walker and Kim
Mizen, owners since 2001, managed
the re-build efforts with a goal of
preserving the famous landmark on
South Sauble Beach.
“It was important to maintain the historic character of a
1930’s general store and ice cream
parlour”, says Kim . “We have a real
connection to the heritage of the
Sauble Trading Post. When we purchased the store, my grandfather
was keen to share the property’s history. The general store was built in
1934 by a man named Mr. Roberts.
Roberts had two daughters who
helped him run the store. In 2002,
Mrs. Ethel White, one of the daughters of the original owner, came
with my grandfather to meet us!”
Ethel White was in her mid-eighties when she visited. She presented
Kevin and Kim with a photograph
taken in front of the South Sauble
Store in the early days (circa-1937).
Both Kevin and Kim have
deep roots in the area. Kevin Walker grew up on a beef farm on Spring
Creek Road, Hepworth and worked
for 14 years as the Grocery Manager at Kirkland’s Valumart. Kim Mizen grew up on a farm near Chesley
Lake. Coincidently, Mrs. Ethel White
was also the original owner of the
Mizen home farm (Kim’s grandfather Charles), hence the connection
to the store.
Since last fall, Kevin has
worked with local contractors and
suppliers to rebuild the store. A
team of carpenters worked to take
out the fire debris and rebuild the
store from the ground up. Fire
damaged walls and roof were carefully removed to preserve the building. The result is a heritage rebuild
with modern efficiencies.
The Sauble Trading Post
- Ice Cream Parlour and General
Store is located at 22nd Street South
between 2nd Avenue South and the
beach. Kevin and Kim will be open
weekends starting May 15th from
8:00AM - 10:00 PM. The store serves
a little bit of everything including:
propane refilling station, coffee and
newspapers, groceries, snacks, ice,
movies, beach toys, firewood, fireworks, and of course ICE CREAM!
Follow the Sauble Trading
Post on Facebook to view progress
leading up to opening day and details
for the Celebration
Event later this summer.
Kevin and
Kim look forward to
“Meeting YOU at the
Beach!”

Property Checks is a locally owned Sauble Beach business that offers flexible
home and cottage inspection packages for clients who take vacations, travel
for work, go south for the winter or own vacation or rental property but live
too far away to check it on a regular basis. Property Checks offers peace of
mind to our clients and helps to meet their insurance requirements. Clients
receive a date stamped verification photo, a detailed check list and a monthly
statement.
Wind, water, vandalism and pest intrusions are some of the main causes for
home insurance claims and having someone check your property on a regular basis is usually part of your insurance requirements and can help reduce
or eliminate damage that can be caused by circumstances beyond your control.
Property Checks also offers a Digital Asset Inventory Cataloguing Service to
provide clients with proof of their property and contents in case of fire, theft
or storm damage. Having a digital inventory can help expedite insurance
claims and ensures clients get the fair value of their property and its contents.

The Signpost has been a
community newspaper in Sauble Beach since the 1960’s and has
stuck with the retro vibe that Sauble Beach as a town portrays. Being
retro however, does not mean that
we are not up to date on the current
trends. Specifically in the digital
and online world.
A significant growth has occurred in who and how people view
newspapers online. A 79% growth
has occurred since 2014 for males
aged 35-55+ who have begun to
view their newspapers digitally*.
An 81% growth has occurred since
2014 for females aged 45-55+ that
have turned to their devices to get
their daily news*.
Currently the Signpost is
available for viewing online at
www.saublebeach.com under the
Signpost tab. This not only allows
local residents to view it, but also
the thousands of tourists and cottage owners that spend a majority
of their time and holidays in Sauble
Beach.
Under the same Signpost
tab on the website you are able to
subscribe to receive the Signpost
directly to your e-mail inbox once
the digital copy becomes available.
The benefit of this is that the digital
copy becomes available for viewing
before the printed issues are distributed. Currently over 200 people
have signed up for this option and

Spring has finally arrived
and with it the outdoor activities of
the Sauble and Area Men’s Club get
underway. Much will be happening again this year with golf being
a premier activity for the many of
the men. Chesley Lake Golf Course
will once again host our members
every Thursday morning beginning
on April 30th. Last year we began
to play pickleball on the Chesley
Lake tennis courts and had a great
response from members who enjoy
a more invigorating sport. We will
be playing on Monday mornings
and encourage all members and
their partner to come and experience the fastest growing sport in
North America.
One of our clubs main
goals is to support local events and
there are many. Volunteers will
be helping out at the Zion-Amabel
Garage Sale on May 15th and 16th
and at the Air and Car show being
held at the Wiarton Airport on June
13th. Several other events during
the next few months will give our
members an opportunity to get
involved.
Spring and summer activities abound including a bus trip
to Camp Borden, the Sauble Parkway clean-up, a trip to the Drayton
Theatre, lawn bowling, hazardous
waste clean-up, a bocce ball tournament, golf tournament, car rally
and trip to Stratford for the musical
‘Carousel’.
We also love to learn and
eat and dinner meetings are a staple. In April we were privileged to
have with us Mike Prevost, president of the Sydenham Sportsmen’s
Association who shared a wealth of
information. He estimated that the
annual Salmon Derby has boosted
the local economy by 1.5 to 2.5 million dollars over the years.

Hike for Hospice
Bruce Peninsula Hospice
Charmila Ireland, Program Director
Huron Feathers
On Sunday, May 3rd, Bruce Peninsula Hospice will join thousands
of people across the country, as they come together to raise funds for hospice palliative care programs and services. Bruce Peninsula Hospice (BPH)
has been serving the Bruce Peninsula and surrounding area since 1995, so
it is a very special year for us as we are celebrating our 20th anniversary
in the community. May 3rd is our third annual Hike for Hospice Palliative
Care and it will take place at 1:00 pm at sites in both Northern Bruce Peninsula (meet at Lindsay Tract Trails) and South Bruce Peninsula (meet at
Wiarton Arena).
Many of us have been touched by death, dying, loss and caregiving
or know someone who has. Peninsula Hospice is working toward ensuring
that more Canadians, especially in our own community, receive the end-oflife care they wish for. Our staff and trained volunteers provide visiting
hospice and bereavement services to over 70 individuals and families each
year on the Peninsula. We also provide community education about matters related to end of life.
Bruce Peninsula Hospice is a non-profit, charitable organization
and our services are free to individuals and their families. We rely on the
support of service groups, individuals and memorial donations to fund our
work. Help us celebrate our 20th anniversary in whatever way you can…
with a donation, by becoming a volunteer or by joining us on our annual
Hike for Hospice on May 3rd. It will be a great chance to come out and be
with others in the community for a great day of fun and hiking. For hikers
in South Bruce Peninsula, join us at the Wiarton Arena for registration at
1:00, the hikes will start at 2:00 and will include a historical town walk, a
hike to the Corran and a more spirited hike for those that want to get a good
sweat on! Following the hikes, there will be refreshments and some great
prizes.HikesofvariouslengthswillalsobetakingplaceinNorthernBruce

Energy Saving Tips for the
Summer
Jaclyn Bennett
Signpost Editor
Summer brings not only thousands of tourists to the beach,
but also raising temperatures. Going from the cooler weather to the
warmer weather sometimes increases a businesses energy costs. No
matter what business you may have there is always way to cut down
the energy consumption. Here are a few tips that will not only cut
down on costs, but will make employees as well as customers more
comfortable.
Improve efficiency on your cooling and ventilation systems.
Using a programmable thermostat allows for easy regulation and
adjusting of temperatures throughout the day and night. To avoid
employees making changes on the set temperature, consider a cover
with a lock.
Closing window coverings and installing ceiling fans are
some of the low maintenance changes you can make to not only
make your employees comfortable while working, but customers as
well. The most frequent complaints from consumers about retailers
in the summer, is that they run the air conditioners too high making
it uncomfortable to shop for a longer period of time.
When in an office setting simple changes such as replacing
older lighting with newer LED or energy efficient light fixtures
will make a world of difference. Turning off computers and other
equiptment when leaving for the night or weekend can potentially
save you up to $44 per computer, per year*.

Changing your computer monitor settings to go into “sleep”
or “power down” mode when not being used for a period of time
will save you as well.
Now for our food and beverage businesses. If using ice makers make sure to pick the one that works the best for your business.
Having a machine that makes too little, or too much without being
used will raise your energy consumption. If you have an ice machine in your establishment make sure to keep up regular maintenance as well as keeping evaporator coils clean and free of ice build
up.
Always check latches and gaskets on oven doors to make sure
the heat stays where it should. If you use display cases for your food
products, insulted night covers are available to help keep the cold in
overnight.
