A joint research project, titled: “Finding Christ Church: Social Justice in history, memory, and contemporary practice, 1819-2019,” was officially launched at the church on Thursday.

The aim is to explore and interpret the history and investigate how the legacy of these stories remains relevant for today’s world.

“It is a special moment worthy of consideration in its own right,” said organizer Devin Andrews of the milestone anniversary.

The project received a federal grant from the Social Science and Humanities Research Council.

In the 19th century, the local Anglican church used its public platform and resources to support the movement to end slavery in the United States and to speak out for racial equality in partnership with the black abolitionists and freedom seekers.

“The Anglican congregation at that time was itself a mixed-race congregation,” Andrews said, adding the church took the unpopular but moral stance of presiding over mixed-race marriages.

Chatham-Kent was also a site for civil rights activism through challenges to racial segregation that led to the passage of Ontario’s human rights legislation.

As part of the project, researchers will be soliciting stories from the congregation and community at large.

“(We plan to) learn these stories that tell us about how members of Christ Church were involved to take a stand,” Andrews said. “Even if for some it may have been on the other side of this particular argument.”

The findings will be presented in stages throughout the coming year. It will conclude with a one-day conference on Oct. 19, 2019 aimed at linking the congregation’s history to fighting similar present-day injustices, including human trafficking.

Christ Church rector, Rev. John Maroney, said the church aims to look into the trafficking issue, especially given Chatham-Kent’s access to the Highway 401 corridor, which makes it a hub for such activity.

He’s also a part of a diocesan commission on the issue.

“There’s got to be something we can do for this,” he said. “This is a good way to spread awareness of what’s going on in our backyard.”

Maroney called the history project a chance to look to the past, while focusing on the future.

“The church is not just what happens on Sunday. The church is basically what happens outside of the four walls,” he said.

Dr. Nina Reid-Maroney, of Huron University College’s department of history, said students will be actively involved in the project.

There will also be visits, workshops and a living library, with the latter taking place in June.

“People who attend the event can check out a living ‘book,’ and have a one-on-one conversation to hear the story of the person,” Reid-Maroney said. “(It’s) a way of connecting to a living memory.”

The public will be able to keep track of the findings by visiting huronresearch.ca/findingchristchurch There will be other events celebrating the bicentenary with details to come.

For more information, or to help contribute information to the project, contact Andrews at 519-352-0432, or devinandrews@hotmail.com

C-K officers learning skills to de-escalate crisis situations https://www.google.com/https:/533/news/local-news/c-k-officers-learning-skills-to-de-escalate-crisis-situations https:/533/news/local-news/c-k-officers-learning-skills-to-de-escalate-crisis-situations#respond Thu, 22 Nov 2018 20:43:40 +0000 https:/533/news/local-news/c-k-officers-learning-skills-to-de-escalate-crisis-situations There were some hostage situations at a local hotel in Chatham on Thursday that Chatham-Kent police officers had to deal with, but there was no danger to the public.

These scenarios involving actors is part of a five-day crisis negotiators course local officers are taking in Chatham, along with officers from Niagara Regional Police.

Sgt. Albert Pilbeam, with the CKPS training unit, said scenario-based training is integrated in nearly everything officers do, including crisis negotiations.

“The theories behind our practices are very important and they are sound, it’s the actual scenario-based training that drives all of that information home,” he said.

Const. Fraser Curtis, an experienced negotiator, who is being re-certified, said crisis negotiation is a “perishable skill and obviously something that’s needed on the road from time-to-time when a call comes through where somebody’s in crisis.”

He said learning the theory and terminology is important, “but, until you actually get into a scenario, it’s the closest thing to a real call that you can get.”

Pilbeam said, “In any hostile environment, negotiation has to be at the forefront to minimize any force applied by police.”

Tom Hart, president of Canadian Critical Incident Inc., with 20 years experience as a crisis negotiator with Durham Regional Police, is a course instructor.

He said actors, who do a great job of creating a realistic situation, have a script of a person barricaded and armed with a hostage.

As officers receive demands in the scenario, Hart said, “they’re applying their skills in terms of de-escalating, creating a rapport, finding other options and coping means for this high-risk, very expressive individual that’s now barricaded himself.”

As the situation unfolds, with good negotiating techniques, the officers will be able to negotiate the release of hostage.

Before officers got to this point in the training, they first covered the fundamentals.

Hart said the course focuses on communication and negotiation strategies and techniques, along with looking at mental illnesses officers routinely face, including schizophrenia, depression, and anti-social behaviours.

“These type of people when they suffer these mental illnesses they’re in a state of crisis,” Hart said. “It’s really important for the officers to recognize those illnesses and develop a negotiating strategy to defuse, de-escalate and negotiate.”

Listening and de-escalating are key to successful negotiation, he said, followed by communicating clearly to the individual how resources will be used to resolve the situation.

“Once you build that rapport, then you can start influencing that person’s behaviour and then you’re looking for a behavioural change,” Hart said.

Pilbeam said the knowledge officers have gained about mental illness has been valuable, citing the fact more people with this condition have been integrated into the community with the closure of some facilities dating back to the 1980s.

But officers also have access to mental health professionals to help if it involves a crisis negotiation with someone suffering from a mental illness.

Sarah Faubert, a member of the Canadian Mental Health Crisis Team, is taking part in the training.

Noting she works with the officers quite often, Faubert said, “It’s nice to be involved in kind of an integrated training experience alongside (the CKPS).”

She said, “The officers obviously have a different set of skills than the mental health professionals have, so working together, integrating those experiences, is definitely an asset for the population that we serve and leads to better outcomes for the individuals that we’re trying to help.”

Local agriculture recognized at Rural Urban Dinner https://www.google.com/https:/533/news/local-news/local-agriculture-recognized-at-rural-urban-dinner https:/533/news/local-news/local-agriculture-recognized-at-rural-urban-dinner#respond Thu, 22 Nov 2018 20:23:37 +0000 https:/533/news/local-news/local-agriculture-recognized-at-rural-urban-dinner Local farmers received recognition for their contributions during the Chatham-Kent Chamber of Commerce’s 72nd annual Rural Urban Dinner on Wednesday.

Bob Kerr was named agriculturist of the year, while Joseph Grootenboer was the individual agriculture innovator of the year.

Veritas Farm Business Management was the business innovator.

Rob Faubert was recognized as friend of agriculture, with Adam Reid and Emma Richards named the 4H members of the year.

A total of 325 people attended the event, which was held at the John D. Bradley Convention Centre.

Kerr, who has been farming for 48 years, grows a variety of crops, organically and conventionally.

He said there has been a significant evolution in the industry during his time, particularly through the use of technology and its impact on accuracy.

“What a change. We operate on a larger scale,” Kerr said. “One of the things that I really love is autopilot. (They) steer themselves. It really helps us in organic farming.”

A long-time patron of the Rural Urban Dinner, he added he appreciated the award.

“I really do feel honoured to be recognized,” he said.

Dylan Sher, producer of the film ‘Before the Plate,’ was the guest speaker for the evening.

His film, which made its debut in Toronto this past summer, traces a restaurant meal all the way back to its roots, including a Chatham-Kent farm and greenhouse.

Before the event, Sher said Chatham-Kent is unique given the proximity of urban areas to farms.

“Agriculture is very close to the city. That’s not the case where I’m from,” he said. “That’s a pretty crazy opportunity that people get to kind of live and be around it all.”

Former jail and courthouse sold https://www.google.com/https:/533/news/local-news/former-jail-and-courthouse-sold https:/533/news/local-news/former-jail-and-courthouse-sold#respond Thu, 22 Nov 2018 20:20:33 +0000 https:/533/news/local-news/former-jail-and-courthouse-sold Left in limbo for the past several years, there could be new life for the former Chatham jail and courthouse property.

However, what that possible role could be in the future is yet to be determined.

The Warrener family recently purchased the Stanley Avenue facility, which housed inmates for over 160 years.

The 1849 section consists of the original courthouse and jail. The jail was officially closed in 2014 with operations transferred to the South West Detention Centre in Windsor.

Court services were moved to the current Grand Avenue West location in 2003.

Speaking at the site on Thursday, Carson Warrener said he and his father, Dan, hope to preserve the structure, adding they are open to ideas and community partnerships.

“We honestly don’t really have any main ideas,” he said, adding the structure would need to be re-engineered depending on the use.

Infrastructure Ontario, a Crown corporation owned by the province that deals with government properties that are deemed surplus, confirmed the purchase was for approximately $1 million.

Warrener said there have been public concerns, as well as rumours, as to what might happen to the property.

He admitted it’s a “pretty overwhelming” feeling to now be responsible for such a historic site.

Warrener said there would be various challenges, given zoning restrictions and the quiet neighbourhood.

He added there are issues with the building that need to be addressed, such as the HVAC system.

“There’s work that needs to be done to kind of get it back to being a place that you want,” he said. “Upgrades and maintenance, plaster repairs, and cosmetic things.”

It will likely be sometime next year before there is a more firm direction in plans for the property, he said.

“There’s probably some good community events that could happen,” Warrener said. “But as far as a true use, that is the challenge.”

Presentations and tours with local historical experts are other possibilities.

“There’s definitely some demand,” he said. “I definitely won’t rule that out.”

Chatham Coun. Doug Sulman, a long-time proponent of preserving the jail and courthouse, was pleased with the announcement.

He noted the Warreners’ involvement with other properties throughout the municipality, calling them a positive influence.

“I think it’s wonderful,” he said. “You know how long I’ve been working on this. The important part was to preserve the 1800s building, and get somebody who acquired it who has a respect for heritage.

“I couldn’t be happier with the end result here.”

Queen and Princess of the Furrow talk agriculture https://www.google.com/https:/533/news/local-news/queen-and-princess-of-the-furrow-talk-agriculture https:/533/news/local-news/queen-and-princess-of-the-furrow-talk-agriculture#respond Thu, 22 Nov 2018 15:13:59 +0000 https:/533/news/local-news/queen-and-princess-of-the-furrow-talk-agriculture

Emma Richards

This week, we’re going to meet the two young woman who represented Chatham-Kent in the Queen of the Furrow and Princess of the Furrow competitions at the recent International Plowing Match. They both represented Chatham-Kent very well and we are proud of them for displaying so much character, abilities and skills during the week’s competition.

Jordan Wills is 14 and is in Grade 10 at the Lambton Kent Composite School in Dresden. She competed for the Princess of the Furrow and did an amazing job. I met her and her family at the IPM and was quickly impressed with her many giftings and abilities. Here is the speech she gave to the judging panel.

“Welcome judges, fellow contestants, plowmen and families. My name is Jordan Wills and although I don’t live on a farm, I still see agriculture everywhere. Especially in my everyday life. 8 a.m. I wake up and use eggs, peppers, and tomatoes all locally produced to make a breakfast omelet. 10 a.m. I watch as tractors pulling wagons usually full of tomatoes drive by my house. 12 p.m. I go for a drive with my mom and I watch as we pass field after field filled with crops such as corn, wheat, tomatoes, beans, and many more. 2 p.m. We stop at Janssen farms to pick up some delicious sweet corn to have with our supper. 3 p.m. I catch up with my friends and they tell me all about how corn detasseling went that day. 5 p.m. I sit on my back patio gazing out over the field behind my house, where they just took off wheat, and I think to myself how lucky I am to live in an agricultural community.”

Emma Richards competed for the Queen of the Furrow competition. Emma is 20 and in her third year at the University of Guelph in the Food and Agricultural Business degree program. I have known Emma and her family for many years and am so excited to see what the future holds for her. Here is her speech.

“Recently a new mammal has been added to the Endangered Species list. This mammal is seen in any field of crop. They can be seen working the soil, from dusk until dawn, in the prime conditions of spring and fall. They rarely return to their den before dark and can be found in the cab of a tractor, truck or combine in the darkness of night. This species I speak of is the farmer.

“It’s funny to think that farmers make up less than two per cent of the world population, yet, they provide food for over seven billion people. Sounds like they have a pretty important job. It is quite fitting that Chatham-Kent’s motto is “We Grow For The World” as this is 100 per cent true! We are the top producers for Brussel sprouts in all of North America, the No. 1 producer of seed corn and tomatoes in all of Canada, the No. 1 producer of sugar beets in Ontario, as well as producing 20 per cent of all vegetables grown in Ontario.

“Even though the number of farmers is decreasing, the number of acres worked per farm is growing in Canada. In 2011, the average acreage was 780 acres per farm. This number increased to 820 acres per farm in 2016. If I chose to farm, I will be the fifth generation to farm our land. It’s a big job farming as it is a science these days: determining how much of a herbicide to use or deciding what hybrid you want to plant next year, how much and what field. A lot of hours go into planning what to do on the farm, as many as actually farming for some farmers.

“Agriculture is an evolving industry. There is so much new technology making it easier than ever for farmers to track their information from the field. I see this every day on my farm. My dad can sit in his office chair and see what was planted that day, at what rate and which field, using an App. That’s pretty neat. Technology isn’t just evolving on the farm. It’s also evolving in the seed industry with new hybrids becoming available every year with new treatments and traits. One example of this would be the new Enlist soybean variety hitting the market in the near future. This technology allows farmers to spray a variety of products to keep the field clean of weeds.

“As we take in what Chatham-Kent has to offer over the next few days at the IPM, we must remember the importance of the farmer. They will never go extinct but will forever be endangered. I would like to leave you all with some food for thought. If you ate today, thank a farmer. If you farmed today, thank a consumer.  Thank you and enjoy the rest of your time at the 2018 IPM and Rural Expo!”

Elderly woman victim of fraud; Chatham man charged https://www.google.com/https:/533/news/local-news/elderly-woman-victim-of-fraud-chatham-man-charged https:/533/news/local-news/elderly-woman-victim-of-fraud-chatham-man-charged#respond Thu, 22 Nov 2018 15:10:36 +0000 https:/533/news/local-news/elderly-woman-victim-of-fraud-chatham-man-charged A 38-year-old Chatham man is facing several counts of fraud in connection to the use of a bank card that was obtained from an elderly woman.

Chatham-Kent police said earlier this month, the accused approached the victim outside her Chatham home and convinced her to give her bank card and pin number to him so he could make her purchases.

Police said the accused took the woman’s bank card and she never saw him again.

Through investigation, police learned he used the debit card to purchase various items around Chatham for himself.

The accused was was arrested Wednesday night and charged with eight counts of fraud under $5,000 and failing to comply with his release conditions.

He was placed in custody pending a bail hearing.

She left the store without paying for the items, police said.

The accused then headed to the Real Canadian Superstore where she placed two containers of face cream, each valued at $18, into her shopping bag and left without paying for them.

Police said she was arrested about 20 minutes later and charged with two counts theft and being in possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000.

Through investigation, police also learned the accused was wanted on several outstanding warrants. She was placed in custody pending a bail hearing.

RIDE program

Chatham-Kent police rolled out its RIDE spot check program across the municipality.

A RIDE program was conducted in Chatham, along with members of MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving).

More than over 600 vehicles were stopped with two roadside tests being administered and two drivers being issued tickets, police said.

Spot checks were also conducted in Blenheim and Wheatley Wednesday night and in Wheatley in early Thursday morning, with no infractions seen, police said.

Vehicle goes into ditch

Two females were taken to hospital as a precaution after the driver lost control on Merlin Road and entered a water-filled ditch Wednesday morning.

No charges were laid and total damage is estimated at $2,500, police said.

Carleton receives hero's welcome https://www.google.com/https:/533/sports/local-sports/carleton-receives-heros-welcome https:/533/sports/local-sports/carleton-receives-heros-welcome#respond Thu, 22 Nov 2018 11:04:33 +0000 https:/533/sports/local-sports/carleton-receives-heros-welcome Who says you can’t go home again?

Certainly not Bridget Carleton, who received a hero’s welcome when she stepped on the court Wednesday with the Iowa State Cyclones.

And definitely not the 1,200 fans who packed St. Clair College’s Thames Campus HealthPlex to watch the Chatham basketball star in her homecoming game.

Carleton kept her composure throughout the NCAA Division I contest against the Eastern Michigan Eagles. She finally shed some tears during a post-game address to the crowd.

“There are so many people out there that have been such a big part of my life,” said the Cyclones’ senior guard. “The fact that I get to come back and play in front of them, it just means a lot and it’s really special.”

It was a touching event for Cyclones head coach Bill Fennelly as well.

“This was an amazing night, one of the most amazing nights I’ve been a part of as a college coach,” Fennelly said. “Bridget deserves all this and we can not thank all the people in the Chatham-Kent area, all the people that did the work to make this happen.

“This is a night that I’m sure she’ll remember, her family will remember, for the rest of her life and I certainly will for the rest of my coaching life.”

The Cyclones try to schedule a game close to home for each senior, but they’d never come to Canada before.

Approximately 30 players and staff members arrived Tuesday night. They went to the Carleton home for a lasagna dinner cooked by Bridget’s parents, Rob and Carrie.

Carleton’s family and friends regularly go to her home games in Ames, Iowa. They were thrilled to be the hosts this time.

“Iowa State truly is a family,” said Carrie Carleton, who coached Bridget at John McGregor Secondary School. “They are all very genuine people. And that comes through when you talk to every single one of the staff, every single one of the kids that are on Bridget’s team. They are all very genuine people and they’re just good people to be around.”

The players paid a visit Wednesday morning to King George VI Public School, where Rob Carleton teaches. The students made signs for the Cyclones.

“Chatham’s my home, it always will be my home,” said Carleton, a two-time All-Big 12 first-team selection “I’m not here very much anymore, but I take a lot of pride in being from here, obviously being Canadian. It’s nice to come back and be able to give back and be kind of an inspiration to other young girls. It means a lot.”

She led the Cyclones with 17 points in an 85-59 win. She also had nine rebounds, four blocks and three assists.

But she got off to a shaky start, picking up two early fouls and sitting out most of the first quarter.

“Our kids care so much about Bridget,” Fennelly said. “I think they all were nervous. They were all a little uptight because they all wanted to go so well because of what they think of her and how much they care about her. That’s always a hard thing, but it makes it special that there is that buy-in from our group.

“At the end of the night, it was a good win for our team, but certainly this is Bridget’s day, Bridget’s night. I think the people here made her feel certainly at home and it was well-deserved.”

Carleton thanked her parents, sisters Rachel and Sarah, and the many volunteers – including Don Green, Nicole Quigley and Corky Butcher – who made the game possible.

“It really means a lot that I get to play in front of my family and friends one more time,” she said.

Carleton has led the Cyclones to a 5-0 start. She’s also been named to the watch lists for the Naismith Trophy and Wooden Award, which go to the national player of the year.

She’s used to seeing her loved ones in the stands, but it’s been a long time since she’s played for them in Chatham.

“It’s an 11-hour drive to Iowa, so it’s not the easiest thing to do, but they love doing it,” she said. “And that support means the world. I think if I’m making them proud, then I’m happy and I’m good to go with whatever I’m doing. … My parents, my family, they mean the world to me. They’re really special.”

Fennelly and the rest of the Cyclones have grown to love them, too.

“It’s an honour to be here,” he said. “It’s the least we can do for Bridget and her family. The impact she’s made, not just on our basketball team, which is obviously huge because she’s such a great player, but in our community.

“We’re similar to the Chatham-Kent area. Same kind of size. People like each other, they stay connected. They love our university, so she’s made a very dramatic impact in our community, too.

“It’s been fun to get up here. She’s definitely getting the rock-star status. I think she’s rubbing it in a little bit with her teammates. Hopefully it’s a great experience for her and her family.”

She’ll graduate in May with a degree in kinesiology. Then she hopes to play professionally in the WNBA or in Europe while continuing to wear the Maple Leaf for Team Canada.

“My goal every summer is to be part of the national team,” she said. “That’s what I love to do. Playing for my country is something I will never take for granted. It’s something I take great pride in, so that’s my goal long-term – to reach the Olympics someday. I’ll keep playing as long as I love it.”
