A great deal of effort by Township staff and the community has resulted in the first-ever Community Map for King.
King Fire and Emergency Services pulled out all the stops to wash local cars for charity at the station Saturday. Their high-powered hoses and truck jets helped them raise almost $1,300 for multiple charities, including the Heart and Stroke Foundation, Canadian Cancer Society, and the King Township Food Bank. Over $3,000 was raised between this wash and one held at the station earlier this year. Photo by Jake Courtepatte

The Schomberg Cougars surprised the Georgian Mid-Ontario Hockey League with a berth in the finals last season, their greatest success since the Junior C team’s championship win in 2003. They will be looking to add to that success during the 2015/16 season, despite a turnover of players.
Some fabulous court play led a Nobleton woman to the silver medal at the Senior National Tennis Championships in Montreal recently.
The first time Nick Denniston got behind the handlebars of a motocross bike was at the tender age of three. Thirteen years later, his experience and dedication is paying off in the form of hardware.

More than 130 cyclists gathered at the Trisan Centre in Schomberg last week to kick off the fourth day of the Great Waterfront Trail Adventure, an epic six-day charity ride to regenerate the GTA’s waterfront.
Outside of its base in Europe, the name “modern pentathlon” doesn’t seem so modern to most sports fans. The ironman (or woman) sort has dwindled in popularity since its introduction to the Olympics in 1912, yet remains one of the most physically-demanding challenges out there. Schomberg native Beatrice Cigagna is one of those who continue to put hours and hours of work into her sport, one which has actually taken her around the world.

Paul Roberts represented both Water Ski Wakeboard Ontario and the sports as a whole when he carried the Pan Am torch in July.
It was a moment every “boy of summer” dreams about. Down two runs and down to its final two outs in the 10th inning, the Canadian Pan Am baseball team was in danger of failing to defend their gold medal to the rival United States team. With runners on first and second, a single by Peter Orr, hailing from Newmarket, brought the Canadian team within one.

Humans are tied to the ocean and former U.S. President John F. Kennedy said when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch, we are going back from whence we came.
Well, at least he said it in French. Our current Prime Minister, on the morning of August 2, appeared on national television to announce the dissolution of Parliament (already on summer vacation) and the beginning of one of the longest and certainly the most expensive federal election campaigns in Canadian history.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper, during his stop in King last week, said “... there is no higher calling than that of raising a child, and no greater reward.”
It is interesting to note the different approaches that people take in considering the Senate of Canada. Mr. Wm. Gairdner has written a quite enlightening article about the Senate in which he points out the general attitude of many people who cry for “democracy” and “freedom” as opposed to the idea of an “unelected Senate.” He is quite right that “there is a widespread desire for the full expression of personal appetites,” and that “senates are an intolerable brake on the pure will of the people.”
I love science fiction. And I love the idea that we may one day have robots among us, performing various tasks in our society. But ultimately, it’s a sort of catch-22 in our evolution.
As my wise old dad used to say, “Son, always leave your campsite cleaner than you found it.” That adage really hit home when I began to look at my own community as “my campsite.”
I don’t know if the world was ever designed to house and feed more than 7 or 8 billion souls. There are those who are already ringing the alarm bells, saying we need to re-examine our food sources and agricultural production methods, to ensure long-term sustainability.
My wife and I became best friends. I was lucky to find her. While I often don’t show it, I am thankful, every day of my life, that we crossed paths and touched hearts.
I have to make both an apology and a confession. In my last column on the Climate Summit of the Americas, I neglected to include Philippe Coulliard, Premiere of Quebec, as one of the primary movers of the historic Climate Action Statement.
Humankind has reached another milestone. NASA’s New Horizons probe flew by Pluto July 14, capturing humankind’s first close-up looks at the far-flung world.
