THE FREE PRESS THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 2012 ENVIRONMENT: Public forum on tap Saturday to gather input into Copeland Forest use Forest has vast potential ROBERTA BELL QMI Agency With the amount of green space in southern Ontario only decreasing, areas like the Copeland Forest in Oro- Medonte are quickly becoming rarities. "There's no forest that's this large within commuting distance of the GTA," said Dorthea Hangaard, project manager with the Couchiching Conservancy. The 4,400-acre property was purchased from the Copeland family by the Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) in the 1970s. It stretches from Line 5 North to Highway 93, from Horseshoe Valley Road to Highway 400. "The forest is actually big enough that you can go in there and spend a considerable amount of time without running into anybody. You can go in there and feel free to wander around off the trails and do what you like," Hangaard said. "There are many trails that are sanctioned, but there are many, many more that aren't," ...

INSTALL SNOW TIRES ON RIMS $29 95 It's already time to prepare your vehicle for winter When the days are still sunny and mild, it's hard to believe that deep winter is just around the corner. In Canada, winter weather is tough on vehicles, what with cold starts in the morning and salty roads that corrode the bodywork. For sure, now is the time to start preparing your car or truck for the cold season. The first thing to take care of is to get a proper set of winter tires, if you don't already have one. Get them installed and be ready for the first freeze. Other than that, there are a lot of little things you can do to get your car ready for winter, including applying a good wax on the body. Such a treatment will protect the paint and finish of the vehicle from scratches caused by flying rocks, salt, and mud. This is a job best done now, while 2012 GMC TERRAIN the weather is still ...

Winter THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 2012 SECTION B PAGE 5 What fluids are best for winter? As winter closes in, we start asking ourselves how to prepare our vehicles for the upcoming cold season. We pay good money for the best cars and yet we can feel so helpless in front of Mother Nature and the wear and tear she can take on a car or light truck. Other than putting on winter tires, one of the most important things to look at is the fluid levels of the engine and the many technical accessories in the engine compartment. One of these is the radiator antifreeze. If your car or light truck is new, don't worry: the automaker will have filled your radiator with one of the best all-season fluids.

THE FREE PRESS LIBRARY COLUMN: The 'most important kind of learning is about how to learn' Trend is reverting to a broad-based education Well the circle turns again and now, after years of movement towards specialized courses, focused education and specific degrees designed to get students into specific jobs, it turns out that our graduates can't think; they "have trouble communicating and working in teams, and often struggle to see complex problems from a variety of angles," according to the Oct. 13 Globe and Mail. The headline says that 'big business needs you to read Jane Austen' and the story says that even specialists (maybe especially specialists) still need an education that can be defined as "acquiring general knowledge, developing the powers of reasoning and judgment, and generally preparing intellectually for mature life." There is, apparently, a movement back to broad-based learn- ing. It seems we moved further away from such curricula in Canada and now have farther to go to ...
