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.

Our Philosophy 'Every Child is
Entitled to Quality Care'
WOLFVILLE CHILDREN'S
CENTRE is proudly celebrating 40
years in our community. We are
a not for profit child care facility.
We opened in 1972 at Acadia
University, servicing students
and faculty. Today we serve not
only the Acadia community but
families living or working in
Wolfville and the surrounding
areas. We offer early
learning and child care for
children 18 months to 5 years
and an after school program for
ages 5-12 years. Our goal is to
continue to keep our daily rates
low as we offer a service that is
inclusive of all members of our
community.
As we celebrate 40 years of caring
for Wolfville youth, we ask that
you join us in helping to make
another 40 years a reality. WCC
has a special BBQ chicken dinner
planned for Friday, September
28 at the Lions Club, 36 Elm St
from 5 pm to 7 pm. EAT IN or
TAKEOUT. Have an early dinner
before you join DEEP ROOTS
MUSICAL FUN...
At this time we are fund raising
by contacting community
businesses, service organizations
and individuals who may be
able to help. We are hoping to
raise $20,000 for our facilities.
Monies will be used for a variety
of improvements including:
windows for improved heat
and air quality, an improved
refrigeration system and ongoing
playground enhancements. We
are in the process of making this
happen but we need your help.
Come to our dinner and look for
more ways to make a donation in
the future. See you at dinner on
Friday, September 28. Tickets are
$13. Call: 542-5087.

Kings Transit Proposal to Students
I
n an attempt to make economical transit
services available to as many people as
possible, Kings Transit would like to offer the
U-Pass bus program to post secondary education students within our service area.
planning to offer fare-free service to students
during September 2012.
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

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.

Rob Brezsny's
ARIES (March 21-April 19): I'm
afraid your vibes are slightly out
of tune. Can you do something
about that, please? 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.

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:

The Grapevine
Mike Uncorked Fall Out of Summer!
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. Check out
the new complete fall line up at
fundyfilm.ca , there’s lots of great
things to see.
It seems at this time
of year, much like in
January, I make some
resolutions, both for
life and work. I have a
lot of ideas brewing for
articles... fun things to
challenge myself. I have
a lot of great people to
write about and many
events to promote...
it’s an exciting time of
year... enjoy it to the
fullest!

Staghorn Sumac-Ade
From Jenny Osburn of Union Street Cafe • [email protected]
I
didn't need any more reasons to love the staghorn sumac tree. 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.

The Grapevine Asks:
Dear Mayor and Councillors,
As the elections approach (Saturday, October 20), I'm wondering if you'd be able to share 2-5 sentences on what it takes to be on council. 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).

Who's Who: Angel and Sherry Kozlowski: High Kicking Sisters
I
am always looking for a
challenge when I write these
Grapevine articles. 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?

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.

My daughter was desperate
to build a very specific type
of shelving unit and between
both of us we had no idea
what we were doing. 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.
