A personal view of Knowlton, Quebec, the Eastern Townships most beautiful village.

Halloween In Knowlton: Spooky Family Fun
Read the full story here.

While most of the Town is already being scared, spooked and haunted by the scary prospect of an upcoming municipal election it is really not until October 31st when the real fear-fest begins in Knowlton. Knowlton has always been the center of family fun during the halloween season with and this year, in 2009, there is something new that should be a highlight: there will be a Haunted House at Flanagan's on Victoria street.

Flanagan's is the world famous general store in Knowlton that has everything you could ever want from fresh Montreal Bagels to Curtain Rods, from Paint to Peanut Brittle! There certainly isn't a better spot in Knowlton for a Haunted House, the store is full of history and ghosts from patrons of long ago...sometimes I swear that when I'm waking on the creaky wooden floor I can hear something like bagpipes whispering in the air above me! Flanagans is at 39 Victoria Street.

Knowlton Halloweens are special due to the incredible efforts of the residents, parents and children who join together in creating wonderful decorations and costumes to turn the Eastern Townships Halloween into one of the best family events of the year.

Decorations started appearing after the fall Duck Festival as carved pumpkins began being spotted amongst the storefront decorations signifying that soon the great gathering of goodies would be taking place. The end of October is often a time of un-certain weather in Eastern Quebec so we're all used to expecting something strange for Hallowe'en. This past weekend saw, among other things: storming gusting winds that knocked down trees and actually cut power to many folks in the area, snow drifting and blowing that made us wonder if snow-tires should have been installed in August, and a falling back of the hour making the evenings even darker for us! You'd think that with such hardhsips there would be no time for Halloween?

Lac Brome is well-known for it's ability to turn a holiday into something beyond the ordinary and this Halloween was no exception. While the weekend snow turned to rain for Halloween the streets were still flooded with costumed youngsters and their parents wielding large umbrellas who were determined to maintain the Knowlton tradition of making Halloween something special.

The Brome Fire Department were positioned on Knowlton Road and Victoria to distribute candies to the children and there was a steady stream of kids heading across the rain-speckled streets to the firefighters dressed in their full firefighting gear. The eyes of the kids were wider than a glowing pumpkins as the firefighters bent down from their trucks and dropped a wee sweet into thier bags!

Throughout Lac Brome the flashing lights of the firetrucks invited the kids for candies and their presence was much appreciated. The rain glistening off of their bright rotating lights created the perfect atmosphere and as parents escorted their children around town for the candy pick-up they spotted the local firefighters proudly representing our community! Good for you all!

So many homes and businesses give 100 percent in the preparation and decoration of their homes and stores for this one night of fun, it is a Lac Brome tradition that has gone on for years, and it is always so greatly appreciated especially by the children. Who among us cannot recall coming home after a night of Trick or Treating to count the chocolates, gums, licorices and suckers with a trembling anticipation. The same excitement was visible in the eyes off the disguised children tonight!

Despite the steady rain the fun started early as the shortened daylight gave way to spookiness around 5pm and candy-hunting kids were spotted running from house to house in Lac Brome.

The most popular area for spooky trick-or-treating in Knowlton during Halloween is on Benoit and Landsdowne street off of Victoria. Of course, homes in all regions set up dramatic and intricate displays featuring spiders, ghosts and black cats there is something special about the area heading down to the Knowton Marina on Halloween that turns it into something that looks like a cross between Close Encounters of the Third Kind and One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest.

Every year the residents along this cozy neighbourhood stretch really outdo themselves with creating some of the most memorable and frightening exhibits imaginable. Every year is different along this stretch of road and it is always magical for the kids! There are often haunted houses set up in front yards and scary surprises like headless ghouls popping up from lawn chairs to scare the jeepers out of us!

Folks along this stretch have built pirate ships, cemeteries and entire scenes of grouesome bloodiness that have left children squeeling with delight as they stuff their pillow cases with candies! The Knowlton Marina has always been one of the best loved Halloween stops for the kids...the lights reflecting off of Brome Lake and glorious lighting around the wooden marina are the scene for either flying bats and headles sailors or monstrous characters who climb from the waters of the lake to scare or spray the crowds who gather at the boat launch!

As the pools of dark water danced with the rain drops the kids, disguised as hockey players, vampires, lions and princesses strolled between houses accepting bonbons from the witches, ghouls and magicians who had prepared so long for this one event.

The efforts of so many residents who prepare for so long in advance is abvious and again we had a fantastic night for the kids of Knowlton! There were so many carved pumkins, custom made decorations and displays, creepy entrances and eerie music that even as a grown up it was unbelievable!

Many thanks to everyone around the village who took the time to create another special moment for our children...this was such a fun night!
What a great night we had...thanks to everyone!

Brome Lake Blog: Bozos Unleashed
Read the full story here.

What's that smell? The stench of ignorance and anger in a blog?
Brome Lake has a new forum for residents. The Brome Lake Blog was started to allow citizens to express feelings on issues and discuss concerns about politics and life in Brome Lake.

Still in it's infancy, the blog isn't organized yet into categories and it's basically a free for all guestbook where people just toss their two cents into the ring...but some visitors are finding that if you don't agree with the agenda of the blog then you are told to just plain shut-up! Brome Lake Blog is available at bromelakeblog.com/

Started by resident Morris Croghan the new blog "is dedicated, but not limited to, relevant comments on the politics,commerce and general happenings in and around the Town of Brome Lake, Quebec, Canada. Comments must be in English and all will be subject to scrutiny before being published. Profanity, slander, sexist, or racist, comments will of course be barred.

We are looking for honestly held opinions ( that’s allowed in a free country ) be they politically correct or not." Hmmm...sounds like a nice concept but once inside people are finding that what that really translates into is something quite different. People are being insulted and there is no sense of humour in sight! If someone posts an idea the post is picked apart like a prairie dog by vultures. While it purports to be a forum for residents it seems that only three residents, the site directors, are posting their agenda which is hard to decipher through the rudeness.

Oh well, it at least shows that most people in Brome Lake have better things to do than waste their time on a local blog that seems to be doing nothing more than uniting the bozos! The blog has been operating for several weeks now and more public interest is growing as the 2009 Brome Lake Election approaches.

There are more and more folks leaving comments and asking questions and surely there are more and more visitors who come to see the latest issues and of perhaps to check out the comments to provide a little comedy relief! So far there has been little interesting political commentary and the appearances by the candidates in the Brome Lake Elections are as rare as a sighting of a groundhog on a wet February!

Brome Lake Blog The blog is not always easy to navigate and there appears to be some name calling and trolling where answers and comments are laced with aggressive intolerance. If a point is made it is usually belittled if it tends to go against the blog owners personal viewpoints...of course since the Brome Lake Blog is a personal creation without any connection to the town it will likely remain a place for people to either beat the same drum or to be told to shut up and stop being stupid!

If a blog solicits honestly held opinions then it should be tolerant to all opinions but there already appears to be some straying from issues solely focused on Brome Lake as Federal Government bill's regarding benefits to new Canadians seems to be a topic of discussion as well

"I don’t like bigots.I don’t like liars.I don’t like agenda driven Anglophobes.I don’t like meaningless political speak.I don’t like dirty tap water.I don’t like what my towns become.I don’t like phony “Baie St Paul” advocates.I don’t like Anglo panderers.I don’t like decrepit, defunct Anglo Foundations." says one post by the blog manager.

Another post: "Wisdom Era Councilors at it Again ! I see ha! ha! that George Bristol ha! ha!, Larry “No show” Fairholm ha! ha! ha! and Alain ha! ha! ha! “the linguist” Gautier are running again ha! ha! ha! ha! ha!Come on fellows, give us taxpayers a break, surely you jest ? The new administration will have plenty of toxic left over Wisdom deadwood to contend with as it is, in Carke, Bourret.

George I’m sure would spend more time in West Brome if he could, but those terrible WB roads, almost impassable ! ( except to Bel Canto events). Larry “no show” Fairholm, seldom attends meetings, but is never absent on payday.Could be he is usually trapped on the other side of the lake while the provincial roads department goes about it’s never ending task of changing all the bridges and diverting all the ditches into Brome Lake.As to Mr Gauthier, Alain once showed some glimmer of commitment to doing the right thing (bilingual resolution 2008-10-355) but in the end folded and morphed into a mouthpiece for the Wisdom, Carke, Bourret team. Went down with the ship Alain ? Time for all to say goodbye. "

And another: "...answer my questions, but remember no spinning and no political speak, just good solid answers. This is a blog, not a polite wine and cheese lying contest."

Morris Croghan and the Brome Lake BlogIt's not clear how people will react to such comments and posts but it would be un-likely that any political candidates would show up on the blog with all the name calling and quite probable that the blog could end up being nothing more than a vent for a few malcontents who want to sling mud on anything that moves! Let's face it if someone says "I find your Blog, and in particular, your comments, irrelevant, malicious and uninformed" and then they are called "stupid" then there doesn't appear to much headway made towards constructivity.

Indeed the Blog owner is posting hatred and ignorance and name-calling and finger wagging all the while seeming to say that the problem with Brome Lake is that 50years have passed buy and progress has happened. Progress, good and bad, happens to every town so for the Brome Lake Blog owner to pine for lost youth is rather sad.

Morris Croghan and The Brome Lake Blog have reached new lows in intelligent commentaryWord around the water cooler is that commenting on the blog is pointless and it is all a waste of time and just a platform for hatred and ignorance as well as pointless name calling and mud raking.

Unfortunately the people who have started this project seem unable to create and simply wish to destroy with attacks on people in the Town. Dissing this website is as pathetic as it gets! In the little world where the Brome Lake Blogger leaders dwell there is a population of knuckle draggers who seem to live in some dilusional world of malicious self-importance and self-righteousnous.

No-one is allowed to have a screen name, posts are deleted if they don't fit the tatses of this one man show. The owner of the blog seems to find the time to insult the Destination Knowlton website for some reason...see what happens when you try and give someone a voice? I guess we learned our lesson on that one!

Visit the BromeLakeBlog and decide for yourself if it is a representation of the real viewpoints of Brome Lake or if it is a vocal minority of trolling bullies exposing their true colors, bigotry with a mix of ignorance, hatred and cranky old fartinessness: www.bromelakeblog.com/

Brome Lake Stuck With SQ Police
Read the full story here.

The SQ will continue to provide police services to Brome LakeThe officers of the Sûreté du Québec will continue to patrol the town of Lac-Brome beyond their contract which expires in 2012, said Neil Stanley. Neil Stanley, the candidate for mayor of Lac-Brome cannot not see how Quebec would agree that the municipality is served by another police force.

If this prospect does not please him, Mr. Neil is resigned to accept. "We're stuck with the SQ. We have to make sure it works, "said former mayor before the regional media yesterday morning.

The possibility that Lac-Brome obtain a police coverage of the municipal police Bromont is not a viable option, says Neil, and even if it is a certain logic. The aspiring mayor of 63 years said that the contiguity of the two cities and the fact that Bromont will soon officially part of the MRC Brome-Missisquoi are important arguments weighing in favor of such a service agreement. The only hitch, and it is huge, he argues, is that the Minister of Public Safety oppose the project.

Stanley Neil - Mayor Candidate of Brome LakeEven if this prospect does not please him, Neil Stanley (oictured here) is resigned to accept that the Sûreté du Québec provides coverage of the town of Lac Brome. "We're stuck with the SQ. We have to ensure that it works," said the former mayor.

In the early 2000s, noted Neil, his administration had studied this scenario with the City of Bromont. The negative signals received from Quebec were quick to convince him not to implement this idea.

Nevertheless, Mr Neil believes that it is possible to obtain better services from the Surete du Quebec. The opportunity is beautiful, in its view, enjoy the raiding of the SQ from other municipalities, to demand better services. "It's time to tighten the screw to the SQ," he said in English (that's the time to put the squeeze on the SQ).

When he said that is what the 20 mayors of the MRC Brome-Missisquoi working for five years, he displays a certain skepticism. "The mayors have perhaps not pushed hard enough," he said.

Tax Rates

If elected on November 1, Neil promised to do everything not to increase taxes on behalf of taxpayers, despite the entry into force of the new assessment roll. It should be up about 25%, according to our information.

If budget does not surprise awaits him - "I want to know exactly how the city has been mismanaged in recent years," says he - Neil reduce the rate of taxation in the same proportion as the increase in property values. It is currently 88 cents per $ 100 valuation.

Based on, and thanks to, the recent article in La Voix De L'est.

Eveline Boulva - On the road, between cleared land and woods
Read the full story here.

Eveline Boulva :Fluvial; foreshore, first time (2008), oil and pencil on masonite, 91 x 91 x 7.5 cm
October 17 to November 15, 2009 > Eveline Boulva : On the road, between cleared land and woods (Sur la route entre sarts et bois). Located mid-way between drawing, painting and mapmaking, Eveline Boulva’s current works investigate the concept of landscape.

Through this project, Eveline Boulva seeks to enter more deeply into the subject that drives her work –landscape –; to get more specific about the notion of territory by introducing industrial cities like Baie-Comeau and the omnipresent forest typical of the North Shore into her works; and to create a formal relationship between the shaky line of drawing, cartographic recesses and the fragility or remoteness inherent in the places she depicts.
Image : Fluvial; foreshore, first time (2008), oil and pencil on masonite, 91 x 91 x 7.5 cm

Her personal reappropriation of the territories explored give us both a contemporary and original vision of landscape.

Eveline Boulva has a doctorate in visual arts and geography from Laval University. She has participated in a number of groups shows in Quebec, including a recent exhibition at the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec in Quebec City, C’est arrivé près de chez vous. She has completed a number of residencies in printmaking design and production. Her works are included in several public collections, including the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, the Loto-Québec Collection and the Bibliothèque National de Québec. She lives and works in Quebec City where she has taught drawing since 2001.

Welcome to the opening reception, which will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 17.
The artist will briefly present her work at 2:30 p.m.

The Gallery is located at 7 Academy St. in Sutton. It is open from Thursday to Sunday, 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Admission is free.

According to Renaissance Lac Brome the lake is again closed for algae blooms! OUCH!TO WATERSIDE RESIDENTS AND USERS OF LAC BROME (MUNICIPALITY OF LAC-BROME)

This was a press release from Renaissance Lac Brome: Longueuil, September 25, 2009 –Large algal blooms were observed in Lake Brome and water analysis show high blue-green algae toxin level. These blooms make exposure to the water dangerous to your health.

The Direction de santé publique de la Montérégie recommends to all waterside residents and users to follow these precautions :

? Don’t drink or use lake water to prepare or cook your meals.
N.B. Boiling water does not eliminate blue–green algae toxins.
? Avoid contact with water from the lake (showering and bathing, recreational water activities
involving direct or prolonged contact). Children are more at risk and should be monitored closely.
? Don’t let pets play in or drink the water.

All these recommendations should be maintained until the Direction de santé publique de la Montérégie Director, Dr Jocelyne Sauvé, advises differently. The Direction de santé publique de la Montérégie reminds you that blue–green algae toxins can have effects on your health such as :
? Abdominal pain, diarrhoea, vomiting or nausea from swallowing contaminated water.
? Skin and eye irritations as well as a sore throat can appear after direct or prolonged exposure to abnormally coloured water.

For more information concerning blue-green algae, please consult the following Internet site:
http://www.alguesbleuvert.gouv.qc.ca/fr/index.asp or contact Services Québec at 1-877-644-4545.
If you think you are having health problems related to blue-green algae, consult your doctor or
communicate with Info-Santé services by dialing 811.
