Ms. Claybelt - New Liskeard

Ms. Claybelt a larger than life statue of a Holstein-FriesianMs. Claybelt was the fabrication of local businessman and creative genius Jerry Shepherdson. The Township of Dymond Council approached Mr. Shepherdson back in the early eighties, asking him if he could produce a larger than life-size cow as a tourist attraction for the area. "I'm always picking up challenges, so I said, ‘Of course I could'," answered Mr. Shepherdson. The Dairy Association of Canada brought a 12-inch-high by 18 inches wide statue of a Holstein-Friesian to Mr. Shepherdson and Ms. Claybelt was created from it.

"We took the cow, set it on a piece of plywood and marked one-inch grids, we measured every inch. Then we just multiplied that by 12 inches," he stated. Ms. Claybelt has three by three square tubing running across her back horizontally and a steel frame down each side, as a base for her construction. Wooden ribs were then created to build her basic shape. "There were hollows that just wouldn't be accounted for with the design, as it was." "So then we took panels, one inch strips and we started to place them along, and pretty soon the form started." The Mid-Canada Fibreglass team then began adding fibreglass to the 12-foot-high Holstein. Altogether it took 865-man hours to assemble Ms. Claybelt, from start to finish.

Mr. Shepherdson said they encountered a few minor setbacks during the building of the cow, starting with the head. "When we were making the head, the first attempt, it looked like elephant ears." At the end of construction, the crew faced another dilemma, not so easily rectified. "We made it inside the building, and the head was touching the ceiling. We got it made, it was kind of cramped. The ceiling was 12 feet high but the door was only 9 feet high." Face with reality that there was no way that the cow would make it through the doorway, the team searched for solutions, to no avail. "This is funny but I had a dream, I call then my visions. I take my work home with me I suppose," began Mr. Shepherdson. "In my dream I cut off the legs. I went into work the next morning, we cut the legs off, lowered it down and it went out the door. We got it outside the door, put the spigots in it again, stood it up right and took her over to the site." "I charged the township $10,700. I didn't make any money on it. My costs were about same."

Pioneer Spirit - Haileybury 

The Great Fire of 1922 burned through the Little Clay BeltThe Great Fire of 1922 was a wildfire burning through the Little Clay Belt in the Timiskaming District, Ontario, Canada, from October 4 to 5, 1922. It has been called one of the ten worst natural disasters in Canadian history.

The preceding summer had been unusually hot and dry. Fire rangers anticipating the upcoming "burn" season, had requested to stay in the area but permission was not granted. They left at the end of the fire season in mid-September, leaving the area without fire protection services. In the fall when burning permits were no longer required, farmers and settlers started to set small brush fires to clear the land. But the dry conditions had persisted and on October 4, the wind turned into hurricane-force gales, fanning the flames out of control and combining the bush fires into one large inferno.

Over two days, the fire consumed an area of 1,680 square kilometres (650 sq mi), affecting 18 townships in Ontario. It completely destroyed the communities of North Cobalt, Charlton, Thornloe, Heaslip, and numerous smaller settlements. In all 43 people died.

One of the hardest hit towns was Haileybury, which burnt down within 3 to 6 hours. Thick smoke caused panic and confusion. The town's residents were forced to take refuge in the cold waters of Lake Temiskaming and cover themselves with wet blankets. The fire destroyed over 90% of the town, killing 11 residents, leaving 35,000 people homeless, and causing $2 million of damage.

Ernie Fauvelle was born and raised in the Temiskaming Shores area of Northern Ontario, one of Canada's more important mining, lumbering and farming districts, and is now living in Haileybury, Ontario.

His own experiences and the stories told by his father and other pioneers, have given a special realism to his art.

He discovered the magic of clay in the early seventies and since then has been working full time in his studio creating his unique sculptures, original, one-of-a-kind pieces along with a successful line of Limited Edition pieces.

He calls his work "narrative sculpture" and favour portrayals of those who work in mining, logging and the early settlers of the area. His work is in many private and corporate collections around the world.

Haileybury Golf Club is perhaps the most scenic of any golf course in Northern Ontario. Overlooking the beautiful Lake Temiskaming in the town of Haileybury, many who come to play this short but challenging golf track walk away in awe of the vistas available on every hole.

The course has four different tee decks on each hole to accommodate every kind of golfer. Fairways are closely cropped, the rough forgiving, and the greens are amongst the smallest and toughest you will find. Accuracy, course management and concentration in your game will certainly find success.

Annual memberships are available, as well as discounted 5 round playing passes.
