Please Reserve. 542-0343 [email protected] NSCC Fall 2012 Continuing Education: The Renaissance of Tea T ea is the #1 beverage in the world – second only to water! Wine was once thought to have a secular ardour, yet understanding wine has come into its own. Coffee took off some 20 years ago to break through the mundane of freeze dried to demanding excellence. So too, tea has emerged into a new light. No longer satisfied with the low grade and singular taste of grocery teabags, appreciation for all that tea can be has grown. Tea’s popularity has grown exponentially over the last 5 years and is forecasted to grow another 40% by 2020. Why? Well, there are hundreds of teas available from various parts of the world with their own signature profile that makes delving into the myriad cups of tea to be a long and enjoyable journey. No longer associated with genteel ladies' afternoon gatherings, tea can be enjoyed at the breakfast table or in the boardroom and be the foundation of any manner of themed gathering. You can look to local companies that have a variety of tea on hand and begin discovering for yourself one cup of tea at a time; you could read any one of the number of WOLFVILLE CHILDREN'S CENTRE CELEBRATES 40 YEARS books available to understand more of the history and what the differences in tea is about; or, you could sign up for ‘Introduction to Tea’ at NSCC this fall (2012). A 12 hour ‘Introduction to Tea’ will be taught this October on both the Akerley Campus and the Kingstec Campus on Monday or Wednesday nights respectively. Developed by the Tea Association of Canada and taught by Tea Sommelier, Margot Bureaux (yours truly), this is the first of a possible eight courses that, if you wanted, could guide you into becoming a Tea Sommelier as well. Just want to know a little more about tea and begin your individual journey? This course is a right foundation. Register for either location on the NSCC website (Introduction to Tea): nscc.ca/Learning_Programs/ ConEd/ I look forward to seeing you in my class.

Evangeline Express between WolfvilleNew Minas-Kentville: This bus would travel between Wolfville and Kentville (subject to final timing of this route, it may be possible to travel as far as Coldbrook with this bus), on the Evangeline Trail (Main St. Wolfville - Commercial St. New Minas - Park St. Kentville). This service will not go through neighborhoods or into parking lots, allowing faster travel time through this commercial corridor. The service commences in Kentville at 7am and the last bus on this route will leave Kentville at 10pm. The Wolfville service begins at 7:30am with the last departure from Wolfville at 10:30pm, terminating at the Kentville transfer point in downtown Kentville. Basically, U-Pass would allow all participating students to use the entire Kings Transit bus system fare-free year round, not just when class is in session. Students must vote on the proposal in a September Referendum. Once approved, all students would pay for U-Pass ($100 annually) as part of their student fee package (currently the Kings Transit Student Pass is $65 per month). Kings Transit will be proposing an initial 4-year agreement to allow adequate planning and budgeting for the proposed changes in the operation (including the purchase of two new vehicles). The U-Pass service would begin in September 2013 at which time the first U-Pass fee would be added. Which route is the most/least desirable? Do you have alternative routes to propose? Are there other places Kings Transit should be serving? The Belcher Street Bus between Wolfville and Kentville via Port Williams, Kingstec, North Kentville and the Valley Regional Hospital: This service will provide connections between Kingstec and Acadia with access to neighbourhoods along the route. The first bus would leave Kentville at 7:15am and Wolfville at 7:45am and the last bus would leave Kentville at 10:15pm and Wolfville at 10:45pm terminating at the Kings Transit headquarters in New Minas. Kings Transit would like to fine-tune the proposal in preparation for the Referendum and would appreciate your advice and welcome your thoughts on how to best present this proposal to students. Kings Transit is already These services would all be in addition to the existing route which leaves Wolfville (Baptist Church) at 15 minutes past the hour, arriving in Kentville (Cornwallis Inn) at 45 minutes past the hour, and leaves Kentville (Aliant Kings Transit would like to hear the student's reactions to the proposed additions to the system. Staffed Switchboard 8:30am-4:30pm. [email protected] – General Inquiries building) at 25 minutes past the hour, arriving in Wolfville (town centre bus shelter) at 53 minutes past the hour). It is worth noting that the existing bus connects with service all the way to Weymouth in Digby County to the west and Brooklyn, Hants County to the east and this entire area will be covered by the U-Pass. This will result in buses leaving Kentville bound for Wolfville at :00, :15 and :25 and buses leaving Wolfville bound for Kentville at :15, :30 and :45 (the last buses leave Wolfville at 8:15, 10:30 and 10:45.) The core system of Kings Transit (Kings County) will be placed on Google Transit to provide better route and schedule information availability.

Meanwhile, your invisible friend could really use a Tarot reading, and your houseplants would benefit from a dose of Mozart. Plus -- and I hope I'm not being too forward here -- your charmingly cluttered spots are spiraling into chaotic sprawl, and your slight tendency to overreact is threatening to devolve into a major proclivity. As for that rather shabby emotional baggage of yours: Would you consider hauling it to the dump? In conclusion, my dear Ram, you're due for a few adjustments. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Is happiness mostly just an absence of pain? If so, I bet you've been pretty content lately. But what if a more enchanting and exciting kind of bliss were available? Would you have the courage to go after it? Could you summon the chutzpah and the zeal and the visionary confidence to head out in the direction of a new frontier of joy? I completely understand if you feel shy about asking for more. You might worry that to do so would be greedy, or put you at risk of losing what you have already scored. But I feel it's my duty to cheer you on. The potential rewards looming just over the hump are magnificent. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): I've got some medicine for you to try, Gemini. It's advice from the writer Thomas Merton. "To allow oneself to be carried away by a multitude of conflicting concerns," he wrote, "to surrender to too many demands, to commit oneself to too many projects, to want to help everyone in everything, is to succumb to the violence of our times." It's always a good idea to heed that warning, of course. But it's especially crucial for you right now. The best healing work you can do is to shield your attention from the din of the outside world and tune in reverently to the glimmers of the inside world. CANCER (June 21-July 22): I dreamed you were a magnanimous taskmaster nudging the people you care about to treat themselves with more conscientious tenderness. You were pestering The Grapevine For the week of August 30th them to raise their expectations and hew to higher standards of excellence. Your persistence was admirable! You coaxed them to waste less time and make long-range educational plans and express themselves with more confidence and precision. You encouraged them to give themselves a gift now and then and take regular walks by bodies of water. They were suspicious of your efforts to make them feel good, at least in the early going. But eventually they gave in and let you help them. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): In the spirit of Sesame Street, I'm happy to announce that this week is brought to you by the letter T, the number 2, and the color blue. Here are some of the "T" words you should put extra emphasis on: togetherness, trade-offs, tact, timeliness, tapestry, testability, thoroughness, teamwork, and Themis (goddess of order and justice). To bolster your mastery of the number 2, meditate on interdependence, balance, and collaboration. As for blue, remember that its presence tends to bring stability and depth. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In the creation myths of Easter Island's native inhabitants, the god who made humanity was named Makemake. He was also their fertility deity. Today the name Makemake also belongs to a dwarf planet that was discovered beyond the orbit of Neptune in 2005. It's currently traveling through the sign of Virgo. I regard it as being the heavenly body that best symbolizes your own destiny in the coming months. In the spirit of the original Makemake, you will have the potential to be a powerful maker. In a sense you could even be the architect and founder of your own new world. Here's a suggestion: Look up the word "creator" in a thesaurus, write the words you find there on the back of your business card, and keep the card in a special place until May 2013. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): When novelist James Joyce began to suspect that his adult daughter Lucia was mentally ill, he sought advice from psychologist Carl Jung. After a few sessions with the Stella Rose B & B August 30 - September 13, 2012 her, Jung told her father that she was schizophrenic. How did he know? A telltale sign was her obsessive tendency to make puns, many of which were quite clever. Joyce reported that he, too, enjoyed the art of punning. "You are a deep-sea diver," Jung replied. "She is drowning." I'm going to apply a comparable distinction to you, Libra. These days you may sometimes worry that you're in over your head in the bottomless abyss. But I'm here to tell you that in all the important ways, you're like a deep-sea diver. (The Joyce-Jung story comes from Edward Hoagland's *Learning to Eat Soup.*) SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): No false advertising this week, Scorpio. Don't pretend to be a purebred if you're actually a mutt, and don't act like you know it all when you really don't. For that matter, you shouldn't portray yourself as an unambitious amateur if you're actually an aggressive pro, and you should avoid giving the impression that you want very little when in fact you're a burning churning throb of longing. I realize it may be tempting to believe that a bit of creative deceit would serve a holy cause, but it won't. As much as you possibly can, make outer appearances reflect inner truths. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): In Christian lore, the serpent is the bad guy that's the cause of all humanity's problems. He coaxes Adam and Eve to disobey God, which gets them expelled from Paradise. But in Hindu and Buddhist mythology, there are snake gods that sometimes do good deeds and perform epic services. They're called Nagas. In one Hindu myth, a Naga prince carries the world on his head. And in a Buddhist tale, the Naga king uses his seven heads to give the Buddha shelter from a storm just after the great one has achieved enlightenment. In regards to your immediate future, Sagittarius, I foresee you having a relationship to the serpent power that's more like the Hindu and Buddhist version than the Christian. Expect vitality, fertility, and healing. © Copyright 2012 Rob Brezsny the Looking Glass, the Red Queen tells Alice that she is an expert at believing in impossible things. She brags that there was one morning when she managed to embrace six improbable ideas before she even ate breakfast. I encourage you to experiment with this approach, Capricorn. Have fun entertaining all sorts of crazy notions and unruly fantasies. Please note that I am not urging you to actually put those beliefs into action. The point is to give your imagination a good work-out. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): I'm not necessarily advising you to become best friends with the dark side of your psyche. I'm merely requesting that the two of you cultivate a more open connection. The fact of the matter is that if you can keep a dialogue going with this shadowy character, it's far less likely to trip you up or kick your ass at inopportune moments. In time you might even come to think of its chaos as being more invigorating than disorienting. You may regard it as a worthy adversary and even an interesting teacher. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You need more magic in your life, Pisces. You're suffering from a lack of sublimely irrational adventures and eccentrically miraculous epiphanies and inexplicably delightful interventions. At the same time, I think it's important that the magic you attract into your life is not pure fluff. It needs some grit. It's got to have a kick that keeps you honest. That's why I suggest that you consider getting the process started by baking some unicorn poop cookies. They're sparkly, enchanting, rainbow-colored sweets, but with an edge. Ingredients include sparkle gel, disco dust, star sprinkles -- and a distinctly roguish attitude. Recipe is here: tinyurl.com/UnicornPoopCookies.

S igh, the summer’s almost over. Well, in terms of calendar days we still have a bit to go, but kids and mature students will soon be back at the grind, the evenings have started to cool off, stores are shifting from their summer hours and the number of tourists has depleted. I can’t complain because I had a great summer with lots of sun and many things to do. I read lots of books, saw some wonderful plays, hung out with many friends and family members, and I got to spend a lot of time with my partner which was really the highlight of the season. I finished my 20th play and started a new season of Ghost Walks and I had a very successful Yard Sale and a great summer at work. I love the autumn however, and I can’t wait for the leaves to change, the burst of diversity in Wolfville from the arrival of the students and all the great events that happen in the early fall in this area, like Deep Roots and the crop of new Fundy Film movies. I highly recommend taking in the first selection of the Fundy Film Society’s incredible Fall line up, Moonrise Kingdom. Showing Sunday September 9th at 4pm and 7pm, this light-hearted romantic comedy is set on a fictitious New England island in the summer of 1965 and tells the story of two young star-crossed lovers who flee their town, which causes a local search party to fan out and find them. Moonrise Kingdom is directed by Wes Anderson who has written and directed some of my favorite films including Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, Bottle Rocket, and the stop-motion animation masterpiece Fantastic Mr. Fox and it stars Bill Murray, Bruce Willis, Edward Norton and Academy Award Winning Actresses Tilda Swinton and Frances McDormand. You will not be disappointed with this film, which is filled with wonderful characters and great visuals, including some shots inspired by Alex Colville paintings! And then on Wednesday September 12th at 7pm, head to the Al Whittle theatre for the Documentary Marley. I love all kinds of music, everything from the Four Tops to 80’s hair bands, and I also love movies so the combination of great music and filmmaking, will make Marley a must-see. Bob Marley’s appeal, impact on music and role as a social and political prophet is undeniable and Marley is the life story of the musician, revolutionary, legend and the man, from his early days to international superstardom. This fascinating documentary combines rare footage, neverbefore-seen performances, previously unreleased music and revelatory interviews to create a terrific portrait.

I love that in spring its limbs are coated with velvety fur, like a freshly antlered deer. Long fern-like leaves emerge, then gorgeous red cones that keep their colour and beauty as the leaves turn to autumn red and orange. In early winter when the leaves have fallen it is perfectly elegant, bare stretching branches topped with those same red bracts providing a perky splash of colour against a snowy backdrop. So when I saw a glass of what looked like pink lemonade on my friend Angie's facebook page with the label "Sumac-Ade" I was greatly intrigued. Supposedly she had made it from the cones of the sumac tree! It was late at night but I found my sumacs by flashlight and snapped off a few flower clusters. I made a little batch of the most delicious drink you could imagine just by soaking the berries in cold water and adding a little sugar. It's sour like lemonade but with a distinctive taste. Staghorn Sumac-Ade • 6-8 Sumac Cones • Cold water to cover • Sugar or Maple Syrup to taste Shake off any insects on the cones and place them in a large pot. Crush and break the cones apart and cover with cold water. Let sit for an hour, then strain. Add a little sweetener and serve over ice. 183 Commercial St, Berwick unionstreetcafe.ca 538-7787 "handmade food and fun" (556<5*05. +Y(S:HHKP We are pleased to welcome Dr. Wasan Al-Saadi.

There could be a few people in the community wondering if they should put their name in the hat but unsure of what it really entails. With your experience, I'm sure you'd be able to offer some words of wisdom on the topic. “A commitment to serve on our Town Council requires a sacrifice of private time of about 25 hours a week for reading, meetings, educational programs (learning). Being prepared to participate as part of a team to govern a busy municipality which already knows “what it wants to be when it grows up”. Team work and trust are essential.” Wolfville Mayor, Robert Stead "Councillors need a mix of skills to make an effective contribution to Town Council. They should have a good feeling for the strengths of the community, and the people who live here. They will need to understand how budgets work, how policy is developed and what the most effective means are of communicating with citizens. The more of this experience they bring into office, the faster they can make a start at influencing the decisions made at Town Council. Councillors are not advisors to Town staff, but are the leaders accountable to the public. Therefore Councillors should be comfortable setting direction for the organization, and being accountable for the results. Not every Councillor starting out has all these skills but an ability to learn quickly on the job is important. The most effective Councils are those that can constructively debate and make decisions. The ability of individual Councillors to work as a team and utilize each other’s strengths is important. It takes patience, commitment and teamwork to be on Town Council." Councillor Keith Irving To become a candidate, nominations can be filed by appointment with the returning officer (Denise Bonnell [email protected]) in the five business days prior to nomination day (September 11th, 2012).

I take suggestions for people and topics and I try to follow through no matter what the subject might be. This Who’s Who came to me by suggestion and my interest was snatched from the beginning. I believe this is my second double duty Who’s Who profile... it’s always nice to challenge yourself. Let me introduce you to Angel and Sherry Kozlowski, yes the outfits.... I know, I know, I’m getting to them... just read on! Angel and Sherry grew up in White Rock. Sherry graduated from Acadia in 1999 with a BSc. and received a diploma in Dental Hygiene from Dalhousie in 2003. She now works for Alliance Dental in Coldbrook and when Angel is not spending time with her kids she is also employed in the Dental Profession. And now the outfits! Sherry and Angel have been training in Taekwondo with Master Jo Wagner for 20 years. Angel received her black belt in 1995 and is currently a 3rd degree black belt. She trains (for fun) in Brazilian Jiu Jitso, Muay Thai, Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) and Taekwondo. Sherry has won several medals at Taekwondo Nationals and is Silver medalist their classes would be beneficial to Acadia’s diverse student body, looking for something different and fun to do! for 2011, Silver at the Olympic Carding, and she is currently taking a Sport Nutrition course and trying to build herself as a Personal Trainer. Sherry and Angel are also the co-owners and instructors behind Victory Taekwondo, a school specializing in training those of interest in these special fields that Sherry and Angel have become experts in. Victory Taekwondo operates out of the Abhaya Mixed Martial Arts Facility in Port Williams but is an independent club. Taekowndo is great for both men and women, of all ages and fitness levels. You'll learn how to kick, stretch, get fit, increase flexibility, balance, increase confidence, learn proper breathing techniques or just have fun. For more information about classes, private lessons, or general inquiries contact Angel and Sherry at [email protected] or call 670-7897. And check out the http://www.abhaya.ca/ website for more information. Angel and Sherry find this area useful to both their interests and their business because there is no other taekwondo school in the area and they are in the same building as the ever growing sport of Mixed Martial Arts. Sherry and Angel want to mention that Now it’s not all kicks and punches with these two. Sherry enjoys cooking and baking when she’s not working out and Angel is currently filming a reality TV show called Cubicle to the Cage, a 13 episode show following regular people in their journey to become Professional MMA fighters. The show is being filmed in Halifax; therefore she trains with Titans MMA for the show and saw this as a great opportunity to learn from some great instructors and when the show is over she will fight for ABHAYA MMA. Best of luck to you both! Now, I need a challenge for my other Grapevine article... you know, Sherry and Angel mentioned I could take a few taekwondo classes and then write about them.... can these two help me get my kicks? It is always nice to challenge yourself, isn’t it? ~Mike Butler Brought to you by T.A.N. COFFEE www.tancoffee.ca Autum Neighbourhood Opportunities for Wolfville (NOW) O n Wednesday September 5, 2012 from 4pm-7pm, members of the newly created Neighbourhood Opportunities for Wolfville group (NOW) will be at the Wolfville Farmers’ Market in search of public input. Specifically, they are looking for your feedback to develop strategies to address the negative impacts on neighbourhoods, related to excessive alcohol consumption. NOW members include representatives from the Town of Wolfville, Acadia, RCMP, Acadia Student Union and other stakeholders, which to date have included local lounge owners and landlords. Rather than focusing on legislation and bylaws, the goal is to work together as a community to build mutual respect for all aspects of community life; and to deter destructive behaviour including noise and damage to personal, business and public property. NOW has already developed suggestions for improvements but they are looking for your help to further these ideas.

We went to a large store in New Minas to look at lumber and came away discouraged with their "cut it yourself" set up - not a salesperson in sight to help two people who had never cut a piece of wood in their lives. Back to Wolfville to Rafuse Home Hardware. They had nothing on the floor that would work for us so Ken pointed us to the warehouse and said the guys back there might be able to help. The guys were so incredibly helpful and after much digging we found two different materials that would work. No charge either since it was just left overs! However cutting the stuff was going to be the tough part. We needed 12 2 foot lengths all 4 inches wide. A young fellow named Mark offered to take the pieces home with him on his lunch hour and do the cuts on his tools. No charge. We were both shocked. Wolfville is were the heart is, especially at Rafuse.
