In Memory Of

KRAUSE, Gustav Herman Robert "Bob"

We are very saddened to announce that Bob passed away September 24, 2018 at home surrounded by his family. He was 83. He was born on St Patrick's Day in 1935 in Schreiber and lived there all but 2 years. He appreciated and was humbled by the outpouring of love and support he received throughout his illness and especially in his final days. He met and married Doris Burton in Sudbury in 1955. They shared 63 years together and raised 6 children. His family was his pride and joy. And he also took his role as patriarch to his extended family very seriously. His formal education only went to grade 10 but his real world education was endless. He worked as a truck driver and heavy equipment operator on construction and then as a prison guard for a short time. He also had his pilot's license. He worked many other jobs until he joined the railroad and worked his way up to engineer. He retired in 1992.

His approach to life was a practical, logical and common sense one. He treated all people with respect and non-judgement. He was sometimes known as "the friendly giant" because of his 6 ft 6 1/2 inch stature and he had a heart to match. He was a great community ambassador. If you found yourself in need of help, Bob would be there and if he couldn't, he could always put you in touch with someone that could. He was very proud of his home town. If you met Bob anywhere from Canada to Europe to South Africa, you came away knowing where Schreiber, Ontario was.

It was this pride and need to make a difference that led him into politics. He ran for town council in 1972 and served for a total of 26 years including 12 years as mayor and was still active as councillor until his death. He served on many boards including the Thunder Bay District Housing board and CCAC board. He was also vice chair of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers for a number of years. He volunteered with the Schreiber food bank.

Over the years he made many, many friends and they were all very important to him. He was known to many as Krooner. He loved to sing and whistle and he would often belt out a tune. He will be heard in heaven singing "Wasn't that a party!"

It was his practical and common sense approach that also got him through his battle with cancer. He lived each day to the fullest and believed that death was just part of the life cycle. He thought of himself as very blessed.

He was predeceased by his parents Ida and Gustav Krause, and his grandson Karl Krause, mother-in-law Ethel Boyd, sister-in-law Mildred and brother-in-law Marl. He is survived by his wife Doris and his children Kim (Shane) of Schreiber, Arlene (Hugh) McCorry of Marathon, Victoria Dye (Vernon), Dan (Karen), Robert (Brenda), Christopher (Jennifer) all of Schreiber, grandchildren Victoria, Bellan (Heather), Kristine (Wayne), Daniel (Jody), Peter, Michael (Brittini), Kathleen, Vaughn, and Zoey and 6 great grandchildren. Also survived by his brother Ernie (Fay) of Thunder Bay and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

Funeral service will be held Saturday, September 29th at 1 pm at the Schreiber Recreation Centre, all are welcome.

If you so desire, a donation to the charity of your choice would be appreciated.

It is with great sadness the Township shares the news of the passing of Councillor Bob Krause. Our Mayor for 12 years and Councillor for 14 more Bob never tired of working to make Schreiber a better place. We were very fortunate to have his wisdom, guidance and perseverance. Our hearts go out to his wife Doris and his entire extended family. Details of service will follow when available.

Burn Ban Lifted

                Burn Ban Has Been Lifted

Safe burning tips
Consider chipping or composting brush or grass before burning. If you must burn, make sure you know the rules and follow these tips to ensure you burn grass and woody debris safely.

Choose a safe time
Burn during the coolest, dampest and calmest time of the day: 2 hours before sunset, or later
a fire is more likely to get out of control on a hot, dry or windy day

Put fires out two hours after sunrise, or earlier.
Keep your fire small
small fires can be controlled by 1 person using hand tools and water
keep your pile of wood, brush, or wood by-products to be burned less than 2 metres in diameter and less than 2 metres high

An area of grass or leaves can be burned if the area is less than one hectare (2.5 acres) and the length of the flaming edge is kept to less than 30 metres (100 feet)

Choose a safe site
Keep burning piles at least 2 metres from other flammable material so the fire doesn’t escape by running along the ground away from the pile or burn area
if burning an area of grass or leaves, make sure the area is surrounded by a fire-proof boundary, such as a road, wet ditch or ploughed ground

Stay with your fire
If you start a fire outdoors, you must tend the fire, keep it under control, and extinguish it before leaving the site
a responsible person must be present to tend the fire at all times, even if it is contained in an incinerator
keep adequate tools and water on hand to control the fire if it begins to spread

Please Exercise Caution While Burning!

Save Water – More Effective Watering

With the summer weather, excessive lawn watering puts a strain on the Township of Schreiber’s water production capabilities at the water treatment plant.
 
At this time, we are asking for your cooperation in using alternate day lawn watering, where even numbered houses water on even numbered days and odd numbered houses water on odd numbered days.
 
Your cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated.
Thank You – Township of Schreiber
 
Tips for effective lawn watering:
 
• Do your lawn watering early in the morning or late in the evening. Watering in the afternoon will only see most of your water evaporate in the hot sun.
 
• Water deeply and infrequently. Deep watering promotes a deep root system, while over-watering (daily) promotes shallow root growth, making your lawn less hardy.
 
• Water an area of your lawn for 15-20 minutes before moving your sprinkler to a new area.

FIRE BAN CURRENTLY IN EFFECT

Green and orange Restricted Fire Zone sign

 FIRE BAN IS CURRENTLY IN EFFECT

The Township of Schreiber will NOT be issuing any fire permits until after the fire ban has been lifted.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact the municipal office.

Thanks for your cooperation.
Have a great and safe Victoria Day Weekend!

Community Revitalization Project Town Hall Meeting Presentation & Notes

The Township of Schreiber would like to thank everyone who came out to attend our Town Hall Meeting on Monday May 17, 2017. The purpose of this meeting was to present the Community Revitalization Project plans, timelines, and funding status. This is an exciting time for our community: The Community Revitalization Plan presented is NOT another study; it is the plan which will be implemented in the near future. The project has received sufficient funding to begin the design and engineering phase. Following successful design and engineering, the project will need to get through one more stage of grant lobbying prior to build. For anyone who missed the Town Hall Meeting, the powerpoint presentation is available to view here. We look forward to seeing this project come to life!
