News – An afternoon collision Jan. 30 on Highway 7 just west of Carleton Place has left a Tay Valley Township woman dead. Lanark County OPP say Melanie Watson, 34, was eastbound in a 2003 Ford Taurus when lost control of her car and was struck by a westbound transport trailer. She died at the scene. The road was closed for approximately 10 hours while workers cleaned up diesel fuel that spilled in the crash. Watson leaves behind husband, Darius Watson, and children Kael and Emyln. She was the daughter of Perth town councillor Judy Brown and Dan Brown. She

will be missed by her sisters Kaylie (Mark) Astin and Jessica Brown (Dan Simon), sister-in-law Kaitlin Watson, her brothers-in-law Raven and Brendan Watson, her father-in-law Mark Watson, and her nieces and nephews Liam, Kyle and Meredith Astin, Katrina and Jackson Buffington, Alina McTavish and Milo Maloney. Melanie Watson will be fondly remembered by the whole Watson Family, all her health care colleagues at both Broadview and Lanark Lodge and many good friends. Arrangements were entrusted to Blair & Son Funeral Home, Perth. Those wishing are asked to consider a donation to a fund being established for her children’s education.

Ontario Ombudsman’s office Junior A Hockey Day investigates Carleton Place council goes this Saturday By TARA GESNER tgesner@perfprint.ca

News – An investigation into Carleton Place council, following a public complaint, is now closed after the Ontario Ombudsman’s office found councillors did nothing wrong when they went behind closed doors to discuss a building permit for a local restaurant. The complaint alleged council made decisions on the building permit during an in-camera meeting on July 23, 2013. The Municipal Act of 2001 does permit closed council meetings for reasons such as legal matters and real estate opportunities and dealings, just to name a few. Pointed out by the Ombudsman’s office in an official letter, dated Jan. 16 and addressed to mayor Wendy LeBlanc and clerk Duncan Rogers, the documentation (agenda, minutes, etc.) it received from the town indicated the closed session in question was necessary for

council to obtain advice from the municipality’s solicitor with respect to a lawsuit filed against the municipality by a development company, NuGlobe, which claimed that “the town provided preferential treatment to the Thruway Restaurant by waiving certain standard conditions in the building permit.” Although the Ombudsman’s office found the subject matter discussed at the gathering on July 23 “falls within the solicitor-client privilege exception to open meeting requirements,” council didn’t properly disclose the general nature of the meeting. Citing the Ontario Court of Appeal, the Ombudsman’s letter stated: “the resolution to go into closed session should provide a general description of the issues to be discussed in a way that maximizes the information available to the public while not undermining the reason for excluding the public.” In this case, “council could have added that the closed ses-

sion related to litigation filed against the town with respect to a building permit issue, in order to provide more meaningful information to the public about what was being discussed.” The letter also noted council should update its procedural bylaw “to confirm its public notice practice for special meetings in order to comply with the Municipal Act.” “My understanding is that the Ombudsman did not find council at fault, but would like us to expand upon our general description of reasons for going in camera,” Coun. Rob Probert stated at the policy review committee meeting last Tuesday, Jan. 28. In reflection of this, town staff put forth a recommendation for council’s consideration that implements the Ombudsman’s requirements. Discussion Rogers stated he and the

Sports – A nail-biting final capped of a week of worldclass curling Feb. 2 during the last game of the 2014 Travelers Tankard Ontario men’s curling championship at the Smiths Falls Memorial Community Centre. Hundreds filled the arena to watch Team Bice of the Glendale Golf and Country Club (made up of skip Greg Balsdon, third Mark Bice, second Tyler Morgan, lead Jamie Farnell) upset veteran Glenn Howard and his team (third Wayne Middaugh, second Brent Laing and lead Craig Savill) of the Penetanguishene Curling Club clinch the Tankard 6-5 in the tenth end. Both were top seeds (Bice sitting at number one) heading into the match and Howard had beaten the team just 24 hours earlier to advance to the final. Bice toppled Team Cochrane of the City View Curling Club in Ottawa, 9-6 Sunday morning to earn their spot. For the past nine years, Howard has reigned as provincial champion, but stunned the crowd when he missed a shot in the tenth end, handing Bice the victory, the team’s first provincial championship. They will now also represent Ontario in the Tim Hortons Brier, to be played March 1 to 9 in Kamloops, British Columbia. It was a satisfying win for Balsdon, who lost the Tankard final to Howard two years ago, and had just recovered from a broken rib to skip the 2014 bonspiel. “It’s unbelievable,” Balsdon remarked during an interview following the win. “I don’t know what to say right now.” “We (teams) were playing 50-50 and I was missing draws, but somehow we kept hanging in there,” he continued. “I’ve seen them (Team Howard) play better, but we just hung in there.” Balsdon noted the team was also impressed with how they

served as emcee and praised the hundreds of volunteers who helped the host Smiths Falls Squash and Curling Club pull off the provincial event. “The ice in this competition has been superb and I’d like to give Darren Sinclair and his team a very well earned round of applause,” he stated. “The volunteers put in endless hours to put on some of the best curling around, so give a big round of applause for all your volunteers.” Those volunteers, 200 strong, were then led out amid cheers from the audience and lined the rink boards during the ceremony. Perkin remarked that the week-long Tankard not only provided some terrific curling, but also raised funds for local charities and organizations. The 50/50 draws held during the week brought in $4,000 to support the youth curling program in Smiths Falls and $650 was raised for the Smiths Falls and District Community Food Bank during the

Team Canada women’s curling practice last week. In addition, Pink Shirt Day to support Kid’s Help Phone and its antibullying campaign on Jan. 29 raised $4,200. McGillis said the OCA was pleased with the “hospitality” shown by the host committee. “The Town of Smiths Falls has also been very helpful and we enjoyed all week,” he said. “Thank you also to Travelers and all the local sponsors who have helped make this week a great success.” “And thank you to the competitors for providing us curling fans with world class shot making and I’m sure we’ll see many of the teams at future Tankards,” McGillis added. Paul Howard, vice-chair of the host committee, saluted McVeety for her dedication to planning of the Tankard. “Agnes has given us some great leadership during this last week and all the volunteers have done a wonderful job,” he said. “It’s been great to be part of this. Thanks, everyone. Job well done.” McVeety acknowledged the financial

support of sponsors and the town for helping make the Tankard run smoothly and saved a special thank you for volunteers. “All of the people around the rink, thank you for all you’ve done so well,” she noted. Smiths Falls Police Service Constables David Murphy and Ashley Davis carried the Tankard trophy into the arena, which was presented to Team Bice as the audience applauded. Team Howard also received their runners-up plaques from McGillis and Armstrong. Upon receiving the trophy, Balsdon credited the town and organizers for the “fantastic” week. “And thank you to our fans for your support and to Peter and Nancy Yunker for supporting the team,” he said, saving some special words for his teammates. “There were moments of brutality there in the middle of the game, but you guys stuck with me. Thank you.” The 2015 Travelers Tankard Ontario men’s curling championship will be held in Ingersoll, Ontario.

Big Brothers Big Sisters set $75,000 goal in Feb. 22 Bowl for Kids Sake By ASHLEY KULP akulp@perfprint.ca

Community – Throw a few strikes in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) of Lanark County during their 34th annual Tim Hortons Bowl for Kids Sake Saturday, Feb. 22 in Smiths Falls, Perth and Carleton Place. The signature fundraising event for the agency will take place throughout the day at Gratton Lanes in Smiths Falls, Visions Bowling Centre in Carleton Place and at the Perth Civitan Club. According to executive director Jennifer Miller the goal for this year is to raise $75,000. Last year, 254 teams participated and with 209 registered so far, she’s optimistic they’ll reach their target. “We’re already at 209 (teams) and the event is still a month away so we think it’s going to be a good year,� she remarked. “We’re hoping. Lanark County hasn’t let us down yet.� Miller said the event brought in a little over $75,000 last year with 750 bowlers participating, but the agency wanted to keep a conservative goal. All of the funds go directly to support BBBS and reflects 20 to 30 per cent of its annual programming budget. “(The funds) go right to mentoring programs and the great thing is that all our sponsors cover the costs for the event, the printing, prizes and advertising, so every dollar that comes in through pledges goes straight to men-

We’re really proud of that,� she commented. The funding is needed now more than ever. BBBS served more than 500 children in 2013, which Miller said is up 38

per cent over 2012. In order to ensure the safety of youth, the organization must have trained personnel on staff. “We have trained social service workers on staff who screen our volunteers

and work with the families. We have to have that expertise in house,� Miller explained. “The more we grow, the more we have to have the resources in house to accommodate that growth and that’s

why fundraisers are so critical to our success.� While bowlers can take part in the traditional game on the lanes in Smiths Falls and Carleton Place, Miller is pleased to announce Nintendo Wii bowling will be back again at the Perth Civitan Club for a second year. BBBS opted to try it out after the Perth bowling alley closed. “We were really nervous and didn’t know how it would go over,� Miller admitted. “But it was set up beautifully and lots of teams came out. It was really fun.� The event will run exactly the same as it has in years past. Interested participants can call the BBBS office to enter a team made up of family, friends or co-workers and then pick a location and time to bowl Feb. 22. There is no limit on the number of bowlers for each grouping. Each team will receive a kit with pledge sheets to raise funds for the agency, but there is no minimum that needs to be raised. Ways to earn funds could include a dress-up day or bake sale at work, or using a Wii to brush up on bowling skills in a friendly competition. Miller said little has changed with the See BOWL page 12

Upper Canada school board forming partnership with school district in France News – The Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) is forming a partnership with a large national school district in France that could involve cooperative projects between schools here and in France, teacher exchanges, and joint studies of teaching approaches between the two districts. Christian Caron, director of International Affairs for L’Academié de Lyon, a large school district serving 600,000 students in the Lyon area of France, visited the board last week to discuss a partnership and to examine the programs and teaching approaches used by the UCDSB.

Caron said the exchange program has been established by the French government because studies have revealed that French students are having difficulty with languages. Among other advantages, the exchanges may reveal ways the French system can improve how its students learn foreign languages such as English. The Lyon district already has partnerships established with school districts in England and Scotland for the same purposes. “In France, we have a difficulty with foreign languages and we want to set up partnerships with other

countries to give us an opportunity to improve our instruction of languages and to be able to exchange cultures and points of view,” said Caron. The French district is also very interested in UCDSB programs to help students at risk of dropping out, said Caron. During his three-day visit last week, Caron attended three Upper Canada schools and the board’s Brockville office. The French official visited Vanier Public School for a professional learning exchange or “hub” to look at ways to improve instructional

practices in math. He travelled to Brockville Collegiate Institute to study secondary teaching practices, and visited the board head office to examine ways we help struggling students achieve success. He also toured Westminster Public School to study that school’s successful French immersion program. Caron is now back in France and will work to set up partnerships between the Lyon district and the UCDSB. The nature of the exchanges will be up to individual schools within the French district with Caron acting as a facilitator establishing the

framework to allow schools to set up their own programs. “They will set up the exchanges to achieve what they think is required,” explained Caron. Tim Mills, director of International Education for the UCDSB, said he is excited about the partnership. “I think it will offer an exciting exchange of ideas and both of our boards will learn and get better because of it,” said Mills. “I also think it will afford some exciting opportunities for our students.” Submitted by the Upper Canada District School Board.

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

Minister Bob Chiarelli addresses propane shortage issue Editor’s note: The following is a Jan. 27 letter by Ontario Minister of Energy Bob Chiarelli to federal Minister of Energy Joe Oliver, on the propane supply issue in Ontario. DEAR EDITOR: This letter is to inform you of my understanding of the impacts of the recent propane shortage in eastern Ontario and to understand what action your government has or intends to take on this matter of importance to Canadians. Since mid-December, there have been reports of propane supply shortfalls in eastern Ontario, Quebec, Newfoundland and Labrador and certain US jurisdictions. The main factors appear to be: increased propane demand for crop drying in the fall of 2013 due to a record and wet corn harvest; an earlier and colder than normal start to the winter of 2013-14 which placed increased demand on propane supplies; truck transportation/distribution difficulties relating to the inclement weather and poor road conditions which constrained distribution and residential

deliveries; and the shutting down of the western leg of the Cochin pipeline, which brought propane from Alberta to the US Midwest. Propane prices at both the wholesale and retail level have increased recently in Ontario as they have in Quebec, Newfoundland and Labrador and certain US jurisdictions. Given the role of the federal government in protecting consumers and ratepayers with regard to oil and natural gas supply, I would hope that similar efforts will be undertaken to monitor the propane industry which supplies heating fuel for Canadian families across the country. Similar to other commodities whose transport is regulated by the National Energy Board, I would be most interested in understanding your analysis of the propane shortage and, given that it is inter-provincially transported, what measures your government has, or is contemplating See LETTER page 9

COMMENTARY Catching Tankard fever Opinion – The trophy has been handed out, the curlers have gone home and now the Smiths Falls Squash and Curling Club should give themselves a big pat on the back. From Jan. 25 to Feb. 2, the town played host to the 2014 Travelers Tankard Ontario men’s curling championship at the Smiths Falls Memorial Community Centre. It’s been a few years in the making, but the host committee put on a wonderful display of hospitality and a professional event that has Ontario Curling Association president Ian McGillis talking about bringing the Tankard back to Smiths Falls. Throughout the week, 11 teams battled it out but only two were left standing for the final Feb. 2. It was between less experienced Team Bice and the seasoned Team Howard and it was a nail-biter, ending on a thrilling note when Howard missed his last shot in the tenth end, handing the victory, and a berth in the Tim Hortons Brier in March, to the young team. As it’s their first provincial championship, one can be certain members of the Bice team won’t soon forget Smiths Falls. Communities throughout Lanark County also experienced the economic spin of having the provincial curling championship held here. Hotels were booked solid in Smiths Falls, Perth and Carleton Place and those visitors likely sampled what our local shops and restaurants had to offer during their stay here. With the Tankard now over, the curling club’s budget has received a boost thanks to additional revenue from the event and its youth curling program has been infused with $4,000 courtesy of proceeds from the 50/50 draws all week long. Perhaps it will help breed someone new to one day replace Glenn Howard or Mark Homan. Congratulations to the 2014 Travelers Tankard host committee and the Smiths Falls Squash and Curling Club on the successful event. You’ve done your town and county proud.

Homemade sauerkraut was a delicious specialty of Father’s Lifestyle – As far as Father was concerned, he was the only one who knew how to properly cook sauerkraut. He said (getting a dig in at Mother about her heritage, which was far removed from his German ancestry) you had to have good German blood running in your veins to turn out edible sauerkraut. I had no idea what blood had to do with it, but I had to admit I liked Father’s sauerkraut better than Mother’s. It all came from the same barrel, but whatever Father did to it, we all ate it with great gusto. That is, all except my cousin Ronny who visited regularly from Montreal. He hated sauerkraut regardless who cooked it, and he took to hiding it all through the house, even prying off a bedroom baseboard one time to stash it away. But for the rest of us, when Father worked his magic at the Findlay Oval, there wasn’t a scrap leftover for another meal! After the barrel of shredded cabbage had been allowed to sit in the hot kitchen until it was well fermented, the barrel was rolled out to the summer kitchen

where the innards formed into a solid mass of ice. For reasons which always escaped me, I was the one who had to go out with the granite basin and an ice pick and hack away until I had enough for a meal. When Father was doing the cooking, I stacked the basin high, knowing full well it would take a heap to fill the big iron fry pan he would be using. It was bitterly cold in the summer kitchen, so I dressed for the elements, wearing mitts to hold the chisel or ice pick to chip the frozen sauerkraut, bringing it in to Father just before he was ready to pop it into the fry pan. First he would have fried (in bacon fat, of course) a heaping mound of onions, well laced with black pepper. I would stand well away from the stove as Father, with his bare hands, would scoop up the sauerkraut, slap it into the sizzling pan, as I waited for the whole thing to explode into flames. Of course, it never did, but the hissing was enough to give me concern. All the time, he would be plugging Vice President & Regional Publisher Mike Mount mmount@perfprint.ca 613-283-3182, ext. 104

more wood into the Findlay Oval to keep the stove roaring hot. Once the frozen sauerkraut melted, he would stir the pan with the big wooden spoon, mixing in the fried onions. Father never left the stove, stirring all the time, until the liquid in the pan was gone. Then he would scoop up heaping tablespoons of butter and plop that on top of the sauerkraut. It too would have to be worked in, until all that was left were the fried onions and sauerkraut which by then had turned a golden brown. He would shift the big iron fry pan to the back of the stove, on top of the reservoir, and say, “alright, bring your News Editors: Laurie Weir, Joe Morin, Ashley Kulp REPORTERS: Howaida Sorour, Tara Gesner, Desmond Devoy, Kelly Kent, Jennifer Westendorp DISTRIBUTION: Lori Sommerdyk, 613-283-3182 ,ext. 138 CLASSIFIEDS/REGIONAL ROUNDUP: Fax: 613-283-5909 Judy Michaelis Email: jmichaelis@perfprint.ca Lee Ann Gilligan Email: lgilligan@perfprint.ca

plates.” And we’d line up at the stove while father dished out his special dish. There would be more butter on the table, right beside the spoon holder, and of course, we would scoop up a goodly portion and plop it on top of the sauerkraut, and watch it melt into Father’s wonderful main dinner course. Of course, there would also have to be meat for this meal. No supper was ever complete without meat. Often it would be salt pork simmering on the back of the stove in another big fry pan, or Mother would have a cookie sheet of homemade sausages baking in the oven with sliced apples around them. Father said the apples spoiled the taste of a good sausage. But Mother said if he was going to make German sauerkraut, then she would serve apples with the sausages, since that was a French custom she learned from her own mother. And so the two nationalities would come together at the Findlay Oval. Even though Mother often tried to duplicate Father’s way of frying the sauerkraut, it never quite tasted the same.

Before Mother moved to the backwoods of Renfrew County to marry a farmer of German heritage, she knew little of the foods Father was used to. It didn’t take her long to learn how to stuff ground pork into well-washed skins, get roasts ready for the smoke house, do down a barrel of dill pickles with big cloves of garlic, and help get the cabbage ready for the sauerkraut barrel. It took her much longer to get used to making headcheese, and blood pudding. I would be as far away from the kitchen as I could get while both were being made, because watching the pork head, and the pan of blood being prepared, turned my stomach inside out. I drew the line over both, and often would settle for a hard-boiled egg instead, while the rest of the family ate up both with gusto. Interested in an electronic version of Mary’s books?

undertaking to address and remedy the shortages and the accompanying price spikes. The wholesale price of propane at Sarnia rose by 109 per cent between Oct. 4, 2013 and Jan. 24, 2014, to a record high of 71.5 cents per litre. National Energy Board analysis shows that propane inventories in primary underground storage in eastern Canada (Sarnia and Windsor area) were 26 per cent lower at the beginning of January 2014 than they were at the same point in January 2013. During these coldest months of winter, Canadians are concerned about the availability and cost of propane. This issue has been exacerbated by the lack of public information. Given the National Energy Board’s role in monitoring propane

supply and pricing, I would appreciate it if you could ask the National Energy Board to report publicly on the potential shortage and pricing spikes. If your government does not intend to take any action, it would be most helpful for you to let me know as soon as possible, as Ontario, and potentially other provinces or territories, may need to take appropriate action. However, Ontario would prefer a pan-Canadian response. To that end, I would like to request that a teleconference of provincial and territorial ministers’ responsible for energy be convened with you at the earliest opportunity to discuss this issue. Bob Chiarelli Ontario Minister of Energy

“The partnerships we’ve developed in the last few months have enabled us to be more visible in the community,” she said, noting The Table Community Food Centre in Perth, Canadian Tire’s JumpStart program and the Smiths Falls Local Immigration Partnership as examples. “(Partnerships) have helped us reach more children in a different way. We can spread our resources out there and share the load with other agencies.” As they continue to grow, Miller said BBBS is always looking for more volunteers to either mentor a child or help in some other way. The organization can tailor the number of hours to suit volunteers. “Historically, maybe the thought of volunteering with us has been daunting for people, to find three to five hours a week, and it’s a longterm match with a child. We still look for those volunteers, which is at the heart of who we are, but that being said, volunteers interests are

event over the years for a reason: it works. Their retention rate for teams is high, with 22 having signed up to return this year so far. “When you’ve run an event more or less exactly the same for 34 years in a row, it defines who you are,” she said. “I think people now come to us to participate in the event, which is a really neat thing. People can become part of the community and realize the value of the event for themselves, also.” The support of returning teams is gratefully accepted, but the organization is also always looking for new ones to come on board. “…In five years we’ve gone from raising $50,000 to almost $80,000 in 2013. These new teams are bringing that (number) up and we’re really thankful to the community for that. People stand by us,” Miller said. Increasing visibility BBBS is just coming off a milestone year in 2013. The national organization celebrated its 100th anniversary, while locally in Lanark County, the agency marked its 40th year. Miller said part of the key to success has been the formation of partnerships with other organizations and businesses.

changing,” she stated. “People can volunteer for an hour or two a week. The commitment is less so we see volunteers stepping forward more. It’s a strategic move.” The agency is also in the midst of launching five different Game On! programs, which provide recreational activities to youth, in Lanark County schools. “We want to stay true to who we are…and we will continue to offer school-based programs,” Miller explained. “We’re in 17 of 26 schools in Lanark County offering programming and support, which is key.” At the end of 2013, BBBS also passed its five-year accreditation and looking forward to the future, Miller said they will “continue to meet the needs” of the county. In fact, according to a survey by Boston Consulting Group, BBBS mentoring programs have a return on investment of 18 to one, meaning every dollar spent on mentoring brings $18 back into the community.

“There are still 25 kids waiting for a Big Brother or Big Sister,” she noted. Becoming a Big Brother or Big Sister can be rewarding, Miller said. Volunteers go through a screening process and police background check and are matched with a child based on similar interests. “It all boils down to the simple power of friendship. You don’t have to be young, you don’t have to be old. We have a Big Sister who is 82,” she stated. “Everyone has a role to play.” “If you’re interested in your community and seeing your community thrive and making a difference, we can work around your schedule,” Miller added. BBBS offers traditional one-on-one mentoring, inschool mentoring, and group mentoring programs. To register a team in the 2014 Tim Hortons Bowl for Kids Sake, call the BBBS office in Smiths Falls at 613283-0570 or visit www.bigbrothersbigsisterslanark.ca.

band members Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr and the heirs to the fortunes of the late John Lennon and George Harrison continue to rake in the money. For them the well appears to be bottomless. I know people who don’t like The Beatles of course. But the reality is their music is superior to most of what is out there and half a century after they took North America by storm the proof is in the pudding. Beatles’ music isn’t only saleable, it remains extremely popular. So too does virtually anything associated with the band. The string of related products on the market is mindboggling and, thanks to skilful marketing, the list is growing. New recordings (of old material), rereleases (all 13 of the group’s American albums were reissued last month), games, videos – you name it. That’s not to mention the fact Beatles’ songs became available on the Internet relatively recently. Imagine the money they will make there. By 1966 the Beatles had performed more than 1,400 live concerts, released 15 No. 1 singles, recorded seven albums and had toured the world four times. Incredibly, at the very height of their popularity and without warning, the foursome pulled the plug. They would never tour again. Their last live performance together was on January 30, 1969 when they played on the rooftop of the Apple Records building at 3 Savile Row, London. Other `60s British bands, notably The Rolling Stones, continue to perform live, cashing in on the huge nostalgia market. The Beatles however stand apart. Obviously two of their members are deceased, although that has never been an impediment to bands such as the Stones and The Who. The Beatles music and popularity have stood the test of time. Quite a remarkable feat considering they stopped touring nearly 48 years ago. Beatles’ fans among my readers have probably already seen and heard numerous stories about the 50th anniversary of their first Ed Sullivan appearance as well as the show next Tuesday (Feb. 11) in Washington, D.C. where the group’s initial public concert in the United States (at the Coliseum in the American capital) will be re-enacted. Fifty years after they invaded North America there are a number of interesting Canadian tidbits about The Beatles. John, Paul, George and Ringo were undoubtedly among the most popular performers in the history of the Ed Sullivan Show (originally called ‘Toast of the Town’) which ran from Sunday, June 20, 1948 until Sunday, Raking it in June 6, 1971. But who was Sullivan’s I’m among untold millions of peo- most frequent guest performers during ple who are still lining up to buy BeatSee COLUMN page 21 les’ music. Little wonder surviving

Lifestyle – This Sunday, Feb. 9 marks 50 years to the day since The Beatles, the most popular rock band in history, made their first North American television appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show. In conjunction with the Grammy Awards, CBS Television in the United States will celebrate the occasion by airing a two-hour special entitled ‘The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute To The Beatles’ on Sunday night. It wasn’t only the United States that was impacted by The Beatles first televised performance on this side of the Atlantic. Millions of Canadians were also glued to their TVs on that long ago Sunday. Variety shows were big on television at the time and Ed Sullivan’s New York City-based program was equally popular in Canada. In early 1964 I was approaching my teens and rock and roll music had already made a big impression on me. Not surprisingly I was parked squarely in front of the black and white TV in the living room of our home on Elm Street in Stittsville. I will never forget The Beatles performance. Neither will my parents! Before writing this week’s column I asked my mother about her memories of that particular night. She remembers it mainly because I was so excited. Mom still says the quartet with mop haircuts weren’t her cup of tea. In fact she thought – hoped probably – The Beatles would be just another musical flash in the pan. I think it is fair to say most parents at the time couldn’t relate to why their children were so enthralled. Fifty years and billions upon billions of dollars later the verdict is clear. The Beatles weren’t a flash in the pan! Their albums are still front and centre in most music stores and that has never been more true than during the lead-up to the 50th anniversary of their arrival on this continent. On the Saturday morning after that memorable first Ed Sullivan appearance by the Liverpool, England foursome I nearly ran to MacDougall’s appliance and furniture store on Stittsville’s main street. The store had a tiny record section and like most local entrepreneurs the MacDougall’s were smart enough to cash in on a good thing. They had a selection of 45 rpm (single) records released by The Beatles on the Capitol Canada label. I purchased ‘She Loves You’ one of the seemingly endless string of hit singles the band released during their short but stellar career. By the way the song on the flip side (B side) is ‘I’ll Get You’. Later that year I retraced my steps, purchasing my first Beatles’ album ‘A Hard Day’s Night,’ the soundtrack from the motion picture of the same name which was the group’s introduction to the big screen. Fifty years later I am still buying Beatles’ music. During the Boxing Day sales I added two more of their albums to my collection of compact discs. Vinyl records are wonderful keepsakes but CDs are the ticket these days.

THE EMC - 20 - Thursday, February 6, 2014


REGIONAL NEWS his 23-year run? The answer, the Canadian comedy team of Johnny Wayne and Frank Shuster. They appeared on the program a record 67 times. The Beatles were a hit in Canada a year earlier than in the U.S. Due to the efforts of Paul White, a young Englishman who headed Capitol Records Canada’s new artist and repertoire department, four of their early songs were released in Canada in 1963. Their single ‘Love Me Do’ was introduced here in February ‘63. It sold fewer than 200 copies. White persisted, releasing their next two British singles ‘Please, Please Me’ and ‘From Me to You.’ Those tunes didn’t do well here either. However, in September 1963 the aforementioned ‘She Loves You’ was released in Canada and, as they say today, it went viral. By late December the catchy tune had jumped to No. 1 on the CHUM radio hit parade in Toronto. Ottawa connection Rock music fans in Ottawa and eastern Ontario were also primed for the first visit by The Beatles to this continent. Sandy Gardiner, a reporter who covered the pop music scene for the now defunct Ottawa Journal newspaper, was the first writer in North America to use the term “Beatlemania” in a story printed in early

November 1963. Two weeks later Capitol Records of Canada released the band’s first album which, fittingly, was called ‘Beatlemania! With The Beatles.’ The release here came just three days after the same record debuted in Britain, triggering panic buying by rabid fans there. In the UK the album was titled ‘With The Beatles’. On the front cover of the Canadian version Gardiner’s Ottawa newspaper comments are the first of four glowing reviews about The Beatles. The album cover reads, “The newspapers say a new disease is sweeping through Britain and doctors are powerless to stop it….It’s Beatlemania! This Liverpool group plays to packed houses wherever they go.” In the process Gardiner ensured Ottawa has a small place in Beatles’ history. The US version of the same album, entitled ‘Meet The Beatles’, wasn’t released until Jan. 20, 1964, almost two months after Beatlemania had infected Canadian pop fans. Another interesting note during this 50th anniversary relates to Smiths Falls where this newspaper is produced. At one point in 1964 The Beatles held a lock on Billboard’s Top 5. Yes, five of their songs topped the charts at one time, something which is unprecedented. Capitol couldn’t keep up with the demand for their records. So

they signed a deal with the former RCA Victor plant in Smiths Falls to press Beatles’ discs. The local firm worked around the clock to fill back orders from across Canada. The Beatles only gave five live performances in this country. They visited Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal (in that order) during a late summer tour in 1964. The group played one show in front of 20,261 fans at Empire Sta-

dium in Vancouver on Saturday, Aug. 22, 1964. On Monday, Sept. 7 they appeared twice in one evening at Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto, thrilling a total of 35,522 people. The next day (Sept. 8) they played two more shows at The Forum in Montreal. Those performances were witnessed by 21,000 “Beatlemaniacs.” The Beatles are such a remarkable story. They are easily the most

popular rock band in history and one of the most influential. Their commercial success continues unabated. Little wonder the 50th anniversary of their first appearance in North America is generating so much interest!

Many reasons could be behind service engine light coming on Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hello, I drive a 2007 Mazda CX7. The problem I have is with the engine light always being on. In the past year, the light has come and off but it has only been in the past three months that it is on constantly. I regularly take it in for oil changes. They have changed spark plugs, and have used some other device to check for problems. Last time I drove off the lot, the light was off, then about 1/2 hour later it came on again. I was told not to worry about it, unless it was flashing. I also check the fuel cap to make sure it is closed properly. I am at my witâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s end.â&#x20AC;? D.W. Thanks for the question. A check engine light can come on for over a hundred different reasons on todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vehicles and no you shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ignore it until it flashes. From the sounds of things your current service provider may not have the equipment or expertise to handle this specific repair. I would suggest taking it to an authorized dealership or a shop that handles vehicle electronic and computerized systems diagnoses and repairs. Ontario is changing its driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s licence renewal program for seniors who are fit to drive. Starting April 21, 2014, drivers aged 80 and over will no longer have to complete a written knowledge test. Instead, they will participate in a shorter, simpler renewal program that includes: â&#x20AC;˘ A vision test, â&#x20AC;˘ A driver record review, â&#x20AC;˘ An improved, in-class group edu-

cation session, â&#x20AC;˘ Two short, in-class screening exercises. The new screening exercises are simple, non-computerized tasks that help identify drivers who may need further assessment, such as a road test or medical review. Samples of both exercises are available online (see http://www.mto.gov.on.ca/english/ dandv/driver/senior-driver-renewalprogram.shtml). The new renewal session is designed to take approximately 90 minutes, or less than half the time of the current program. Ontario drivers age 80 and over must renew their licences every two years. In 2012, more than 117,000 drivers age 80 and older attended a group education session. Ontario is the only province in Canada with a mandatory education component for senior driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s licence renewal. The current cost of renewal for seniors will remain the same at $32. There is no additional cost for a road test. One thing among many things I count myself blessed with is being surrounded by intelligent, cautious drivers during icy/windy/snowy wintery commutes. The majority of vehicles I encounter on my daily drive are operated by commuting veterans, used to the havoc that Mother Nature and Old Man Winter throw at us every now and then to keep us on our toes. I seldom see drivers tailgating or making unsafe passing maneuvers when the roads are icy or the visibility is poor. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d also freely admit

Car Counsellor BRIAN TURNER

that my driving skills would have to take a step up to match those I share my commute with. That being said, recent traffic events during some severe winter weather in Ontario have brought some words of warning from the Ontario Provincial Police. In less than one week 11 OPP cruisers (parked at the roadside) were struck by passing motorists as their officers were attending to other drivers. Three of the 11 resulted in injuries to the officers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to make it very clear; severe weather and poor driving conditions are not the main cause(s) in the overwhelming number collisions weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen these past several weeks. It is the way people are driving in these conditions that jeopardizes the safety of the motoring public and our officers. This irresponsible driving behavior must stop,â&#x20AC;? says OPP Commissioner Chris Lewis. Tip of the week has to do with the effect of driving through deep snow. When driving down an unplowed road with some deep powdery snow, often the wheel rims can become packed on the inside with the white stuff. When you park your vehicle outside after a

Savings in the bag.

run like this, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not unusual for the brakes to become frozen as the heat from the brakes causes the snow to melt onto the brake calipers where it refreezes with the colder temps. Usually the first couple of brake applications are all it takes to get things working again, but if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re driving on a slippery surface you make find the first stop hard to make as sometimes only one wheel has a working brake. Make sure to pump the brake pedal a few times as you slowly take off to ensure that when you need to stop, you will be able to.

Box 158, Smiths Falls, ON K7A 4T1]. When using regular mail, please supply a phone number if you seek direct contact (due to volume I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always promise replies).

LAWS earns $5,000 as finalist in Aviva Community Fund challenge

Featured cat Fiona This buxom beauty has been waiting at the shelter for her forever home since April 2013. Unfortunately, due to the sedentary nature of a shelter stay, (coupled with too many treats given by kind-hearted people) Fiona has gained weight which will need to be corrected once she is in a loving home that can provide

This Week’s Pets

activity, monitor food intake and eliminate treats from her diet. Fiona is a very loving cat, although she may appear quiet and shy she does adore attention and craves a home with perhaps a senior person that she can curl up with, receive love and attention and the odd petting. Fiona has many years of prime life ahead – she is a youthful 2 ½ years old with a brown tabby coat. Please visit the Almonte Pet Valu location to meet our little princess Fiona.

sending you a clear message: come romp with me in the snow! As strong as he is eager and playful, handsome young Brady will be off and running if you don’t respond quickly enough. Although moderately vocal, he’s very energetic, and needs plenty of exercise to both stimulate and satisfy him. A quick study, he knows most of the basic commands, but still needs more work on his leash skills – although he

does show excellent off-leash potential. Quite sociable around people, he can be slightly cautious with some at first, but it doesn’t take long for him to warm up to them. As he has been reactive to some dogs, Brady would do best in a household with no small children,

small dogs or cats. Where he would thrive, however, is in a household as active as he is – with a host of outdoor activities, such as hiking, to keep him happy and content. Lanark Animal Welfare Society (LAWS) is located on Glenview Road, just off Highway 43, about 2 kilometres west of Smiths Falls. The shelter is open Monday to Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Write to us at P.O. Box 156,

Smiths Falls, ON K7A 4T1 or contact us at 613-283-9308, or email at shelter@lanarkanimals.ca. Visit our website at www. lanarkanimals.ca. Please also check out www.AdoptADog.TV featuring some of our canines up for adoption. If you have lost a dog or cat please check our website or phone or visit the shelter.

Film falls awkwardly between good and bad Trinidad Chicken Pelau a tasty island dish MOVIE: That Awkward Moment STARRING: Zac Efron, Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Imogen Poots and Mackenzie Davis DIRECTOR: Tom Gormican RATING: 18A Arts – There are those films that you just know are going to be bad. I was sure That Awkward Moment was going to be one of those films. I was surprised when it wasn’t awful. It wasn’t good, but it wasn’t awful. Upon the breakup of Mikey’s marriage his two best friends, Jason (Zac Efron) and Daniel (Miles Teller), make a pact with him. They swear to stay single, and to enjoy what life has to offer with no attachments. This pact lasts a whole 30 seconds. Daniel is the one always making jokes. He’s a little more self aware than he lets on, but still a bit of a jerk. Then he secretly starts dating one of his best friends, Chelsa (Mackenzie Davis), and it all changes. Mikey is not a jerk. Mikey is a nice guy and his friends mean well, but he’s not ready to start dating. In fact he starts to secretly see his wife hoping they’ll work it out. Jason is a huge jerk. Jason

My Take MARK HASKINS

goes from girl to girl, night to night never looking for anything more than some fun. Then he meets Ellie (Imogen Poots) and his whole world is turned upside down. Unfortunately he’s completely unable to deal with it. That Awkward Moment goes through the typical stages of a romantic comedy. Boy meets girl, boy falls in love with girl, boy screws it up, and boy wins her back. It’s predictable which is part of what’s at fault with the film. Then again, no one goes to these films because the story is new. They go to see how these characters deal with the challenges of love and relationships. From that perspective the film has its moments. These are some charming characters. They’re quick with their lines, they definitely have some chemistry, and they even get in the occasional laugh. Despite its small charms the film as a whole falls short. It is called That Awkward

Moment, and as the clever title alludes it is one awkward moment after another that falls just short of being funny. While it isn’t horrible it also isn’t anything special. The same is true of most of the cast. Michael B. Jordan, Imogen Poots and Mackenzie Davis play their roles well, but anyone could have played these parts. Miles Teller manages to steal a scene or two. He’s very funny and one to watch for in the future. I kind of like Zac Efron. He’s surprised me a time or two. As Jason he plays a womanizing jerk really well. Maybe too well. Even with all his charm Jason is a hard character to like. I watched it expecting him to get the girl, but I left thinking she deserved better. That Awkward Moment isn’t the worst film I’ve seen, but that doesn’t make it worth seeing either. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

Chicken Pelau, a traditional chicken dish from Trinidad, provides a taste of the island. (optional) Preparation instructions In large bowl, combine chicken, thyme, garlic, salt and pepper to coat. Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes or for up to four hours in the refrigerator. In deep, large, heavy-bottomed saucepan, heat oil over medium heat until hot. Add sugar evenly in centre of oil; cook until sugar is bubbly, frothy and dark caramel colour around edges watching closely, two to three minutes.

Cream and green 1951 Mercury coupe a show-stopper! Lifestyle – Sometimes it’s the colour of a car that makes it stand out at a car show, and this is certainly true of the 1951 Mercury coupe owned for the past 20 years by Bernie MacKinnon of Kitchener, Ontario. On Saturday, Aug. 10 last year, Catherine and I were walking around at the big Bothwell Car Show hosted by Old Autos newspaper when she spotted Bernie’s Mercury from three rows away and said: “Look at that cream and green car way over there. We have to go and take a look!” It turned out to be

a 1951 Mercury coupe. Bernie freshened up the finish about 20 years ago, and these are the same colours that adorned the car when it rolled off the assembly line 62 years ago. Bernie was born in 1942 and grew up in the Maritimes and Mississauga before moving to Kitchener. Now retired from driving a transport truck, he has time to spend on his hobbies, including vintage cars and playing hockey three times a week. He calls himself a “Renaissance” man because he is interested in everything, including old cars.

He has bought and sold some collector cars over the years but his 1951 Mercury is a “keeper.” His 12-year-old grandson Adam is glad Grandpa is keeping it because he looks forward to having it some day. The car was stored for some 29 years in North Dakota before

coming to Ontario and had been liberally treated to a ‘50s-style asphalt undercoating which kept the body factory fresh. The interior had suffered some deterioration over the years and has now been completely redone by Bernie’s friend of fifty years, Harold “Butch” Smith of Glace Bay, Nova Scotia. The result is immaculate. The car has some popular ac-

cessories, including an outside sun visor, spotlights, locking gas cap cover, fender skirts, windshield washers, and a radio with a rear seat speaker. The only modification the car has received is a new set of radial wide whitewall tires. Otherwise, the car is completely original, right down to the 255 cubic inch flathead V8 under the hood, which has no trouble keeping up with modern traffic. The odometer showed about 40,000 miles when Bernie bought the car, and it is now up to around 50,000. He has driven the car twice across Canada for A&W and loves driving it

to car shows and cruise nights. In July 2013, he participated in the annual “Cruising on King Street” in Kitchener to the absolute delight of 60,000 spectators. After he parked his car, he was interviewed by Rogers TV. His car is becoming a celebrity! I’m always looking for more stories. Email billtsherk@sympatico.ca or write Bill Sherk, 25 John St., P.O. Box 255, Leamington, ON N8H 3W2. Everyone whose story is published in this column will receive a free autographed copy of my latest book: “OLD CAR DETECTIVE FAVOURITE STORIES, 1925 to 1965.”

Retirement income sources – know them all

Your monthly retirement income will be an accumulation of benefits and payments from various sources – and to get the most out of them, while paying the least amount of tax, you need to know what they are. Source 1: Public Income Programs and Pensions – in other words, what the government will pay you in retirement • Old Age Security (OAS) provides a basic monthly pension benefit at age 65. Benefits are taxable, adjusted for inflation, and ‘clawed back’ in increasing amounts as your individual net income climbs above a threshold amount. Individuals with lower incomes may also qualify for the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS). • The Canada Pension Plan/Québec Pension Plan ((CPP/QPP) pays a monthly pension to people who have been employed and contributed to CPP/QPP. Benefits are approximately 25% of your average annual earnings during your working life up to certain limits. Benefits are indexed to inflation, are taxable, and can start at a reduced amount as early as age 60, or as late as age 70 with an increase. Source 2: Employersponsored Pension Plans –

Manage Your Money in other words, what your employer provides • Defined Benefit (DB) pension plans provide a specific pension amount paid to you for your lifetime after you retire. The amount of a DB pension benefit is set according to your age, length of service, and salary. It may or may not be indexed for inflation. • Defined Contribution (DC) pension plans are also known as money purchase plans and do not guarantee the amount of your future benefits. DC retirement income depends on accumulated contributions and the investment returns earned by these contributions. Source 3: Individual Retirement Plans – in other words, what you will provide When you retire, investments held in your Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) can be converted to income in three ways: • A Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF) is like an RRSP in reverse. Instead of contributing to it, you withdraw from it. A RRIF

offers the flexibility of a wide range of investment choices as well as your choice of the amount you wish to withdraw each month (subject to an annual minimum withdrawal based on the value of the investments in your RRIF and age.) • An Annuity offers the simplicity of a guaranteed lifetime income but can’t be increased to keep up with inflation or escalating living costs. • Cash – convert investments in your RRSP to cash and you will be subject to tax on the entire amount. Not the most attractive option in most cases. To be sure you will have enough income to fund your retirement dreams, talk to your professional adviser.

Local music duo Divine Havik take electronic music scene by storm By KELLY KENT kkent@perfprint.ca

Community – When it comes to music in Mississippi Mills, the town is most associated with country, thanks in large part to Wayne Rostad and his famous hit, Christmas in the Valley. Soon, though, the area might be known for one other genre: electronic dance. That’s because two Almonte natives, Jordan Green and Blair McDonough, are carving their own path to fame in the business. Together, the duo form Divine Havik, the electronic dance producing dynamo that is currently taking the Toronto music scene by storm. Started just under a year ago in April of 2013, Divine Havik and their electronically-produced beats have already accomplished what many artists can only dream of: They’ve caught fire, are taking off and quickly gaining popularity in a market that is saturated with new sounds. What started out as two friends playing around with music and producing software at home has, in less than a year, already scored them a record label in the country’s biggest city and gigs all across North America. To sum it up, Divine Havik is on the fast track to success. “We can’t believe how fast everything has happened,” Green said in a phone interview from Toronto, where the duo is currently living. “We never even thought we’d be this far so soon.” Green, 23, and McDonough, 21, both grew up in Almonte, attending R. Tait McKenzie Public School and then graduating from Almonte District High School just a few years ago. Because of the difference in their age, though, it wasn’t until recently that the boys became friends, bonding over a shared passion for music. Both Green and McDonough have a background in music: McDonough played the piano when he was younger and Green has been playing the guitar

Almonte natives Blair McDonough, left, and Jordan Green, right, form the electronic dance music group Divine Havik that is currently taking the Toronto music scene by storm. since he was 10. However, their real passion lies in upbeat dance music and so they created Divine Havik. “We wanted a really catchy name,” Green said. “We kind of wanted a name that was yin and yang, like different sides of the spectrum.” The pair say that the word “divine” represents the melodies in their music, while the word “havik” represents the bass line. “It means beautiful chaos, really,” McDonough added, “that’s what we’re hoping to portray.” Then came the music. Normally, in order to produce the kind of music the duo creates, producers go to school to become sound engineers. Neither Green nor McDonough chose to go that route, instead opting to teach themselves. “We picked it up really quickly,

actually,” McDonough said. “We watched a lot of Internet tutorials and spent a lot of time just learning to use the programs.” Luckily, their hard work paid off, and soon the two were creating fulllength songs reminiscent of groups like Avicii and Deadmau5. “We describe what we do as electronic dance music,” said Green, “but in reality we’re not following any sort of guidelines or one specific genre. We just make music that we like and hope other people like it too.” Divine Havik released one album as an independent group before moving to Toronto in May of 2013 to chase their dreams. It was there, after performing at a few clubs, that their careers exploded. Since May, the duo has already played more than 13 shows and

released 25 tracks. “People just started talking about us and they really liked our stuff,” McDonough said. “From there it just started to spread and soon we were getting calls from labels.” They got so many offers from local record labels, in fact, that the boys hired a lawyer to help them sort through the contracts and find them the best fit. In the end, a company called U-NEQ Productions won them over, and the pair signed a deal with them. “What it means is that our music will reach a much wider audience,” Green said, explaining that their music will now be available for purchase on 12 different websites. “We’re pretty excited about that.” The duo released their first EP al-

bum as labelled artists, Prophecies, on Jan. 23. It will be available on all the usual platforms – iTunes, Amazon, Beatport and others – by Feb. 7. Their success doesn’t end there, though. The boys have also been invited to perform at Fantasia Music Festival, a massive electronic music festival, in Alberta this summer. The three-day event will see upwards of 100,000 people, the duo said, and is the chance of a lifetime for them. “It’s like Bluesfest, but for electronic music,” Green said. “It’s awesome that we’ve been invited out there to perform.” Getting to where they are, the duo said, hasn’t been easy. Creating Divine Havik is a full-time job, and the boys spend almost all of their free time producing music and working toward bigger and better things. As busy as they are, though, both McDonough and Green said they couldn’t be happier. “We’re in it for the music,” McDonough said. “That’s our passion and it’s what we love to do.” In the future, the pair hope to continue doing what they’re doing, making music and playing shows, just on a bigger scale. They hope to tour during the summer months, too. Even with their success in the big city, both boys say they still love their hometown. “It sounds weird to say, but one of our goals is to have a show like Light Up the Night in Almonte someday,” they said. “It would just be so cool to have that much support from home.” For now, though, Green and McDonough said they’re overwhelmed by their rapid success and can only hope it will continue. “All we really want is to play our music for people and make them happy,” McDonough said. “That’s what we love to do.” For more information about Divine Havik and what they’re currently working on, visit their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/DivineHavik.

member, correct?” Rogers stated there were a few telephone conversations between himself and the Ombudsman’s office, “with the mayor joining us for the final decision.” “It was after the report was completed,” LeBlanc said. “I was not involved in any of the investigative work.” “The report was given to the clerk and myself at the same time, in his office by way of a conference call,” she continued. “Just to clarify,” Probert said, “this was a matter of investigating procedure rather than content.” Rogers explained he was asked a number of questions by the Ombudsman’s office and forwarded documents to them. “They reviewed the documents and made a decision,” he said. “Basically, we need to tidy things up.” “They are asking us to step it up a notch,” Probert added. Flynn expressed his disappointment with the investigation. “I thought they would have taken it a little more seriously,” he said. “I am a little surprised.” “So did I,” Antonakos said. “It seems like a little light work on their part.” “If you read the letter (from the Ombudsman’s office), it is quite detailed,” LeBlanc said.

The document was prepared by Yvonne Heggie, early resolution officer, open meeting law enforcement team. “Does the public have this (letter)?” Antonakos asked. “Yes,” LeBlanc replied. Probert added it was attached to the agenda. However, the correspondence was not on the town’s website, included with the policy review committee agenda. “Members of the public, even the media do not have a copy,” stated Antonkaos. Rogers immediately made copies of the letter. “I’m actually surprised it (letter) wasn’t attached,” LeBlanc said. “We need to look at this. It should have been with the agenda.” Registered to speak last Tuesday was Bill Katsoulis, owner of the Thruway Restaurant. “On July 23 we hadn’t applied for a building permit so how did you guys discuss a building permit?” he asked council. “What was discussed and what we had applied for at the time was a development permit.” Katsoulis’ question: Was the information given to the Ombudsman’s office incorrect? “I had already received development permit approval,” he said, “and what happened was, after that closed

session meeting you changed the approvals to add clauses with conditions. There was no building permit applied for, talked about.” “The Omsbudsman’s office has building permit when that wasn’t even on the radar,” Katsoulis commented. “It must have been a misinterpretation by them,” Duncan said. Antonakos asked the clerk for a copy of the information that was sent R0012542186_0206

mayor spoke to the Ombudsman’s office on Jan. 14 and were “satisfied with the recommendations” presented. Coun. Jerry Flynn questioned why council was not involved in the investigation by the Ombudsman’s office. “Why weren’t we interviewed about our feelings on the procedure?” he asked. Rogers explained there are two types of inquiries: informal and formal. “They (Ombudsman’s office) felt this could be satisfied through an informal process,” he said, “and they contacted the mayor and myself.” Flynn asked where the complaint came from. “The names are not divulged,” Rogers answered. LeBlanc stated the only time she was involved was when “the Ombudsman’s office actually spoke to us, when they delivered the report.” “We had a conference call in the clerk’s office,” she added. Referring to the investigation, Coun. Louis Antonakos questioned who spoke with the Ombudsman’s office. “Was it just the clerk?” he asked. “No member of council, not the mayor and no other staff

Christmas Tree Tour Business WINS Highest Bid! T

he Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital (CPDMH) Foundation is pleased to announce that The Good Food Company won the contest and bragging rights for bringing in the highest silent auction bid during the Christmas in Carleton Place Tree Tour fundraiser held from November 18th – December 20th, 2013.

A great BIG THANKS goes out to each location for organizing, decorating and displaying their Christmas tree &/or item; text2 for their interactive mobile app highlighting the tour; the Oxford Mills Miniature Club Members for their donation of time, talent and the creative miniature display; the organizers; and to all those who helped promote, bid on and participate in the event.

The Christmas Tree Tour featured 19 business and merchant locations across Carleton Place displaying beautifully decorated trees and displays for customers to bid on and take home for the holidays. As a festive addition to the Christmas fundraising efforts this past year to raise much needed funds for patient care equipment at the CPDMH Foundation, customers were able tour locations across town to bid on the items of their choice. The owner of the winning bid at each location won the item with all proceeds from the event supporting the Hospital.

Mississippi Mills fire chief Art Brown to retire after 45 years By KELLY KENT kkent@perfprint.ca

Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; There is perhaps no person who embodies and embraces small town living like Mississippi Millsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fire chief Art Brown. Not only has he lived and worked in the area for his whole life, but he can also say that he personally knows almost everyone in town. Brown is the type of person who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go anywhere or do anything in town without running into someone he knows â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a friend, a neighbour or a co-worker â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who also wants to chat. He says he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mind in the least, though. In fact, Brown says that being involved with the local public is one of his favourite aspects of being fire chief and, subsequently, one of the things heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll miss the most after he retires in June. Brown recently announced that he will bid farewell to his position as fire chief for the Mississippi Mills Fire Department in June of this year after more than 45 years of service. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to miss it, for sure,â&#x20AC;? Brown said in an inter-

view in the office heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been in for years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You do something for so long and you get used to the routine. It was time, though. It was time for me to retire.â&#x20AC;? Brown, who will turn 68 in April, has been working for what is now called the Mississippi Mills Fire Department since he started helping the firefighters haul hoses at fire sites when he was in his early 20s. Though the fire chief at the time wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let him join the department officially, Brown said he enjoyed going to the fires to lend a helping hand anyway. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had an interest in firefighting since I was really young,â&#x20AC;? Brown said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and back then the rules werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as strict as they are today, so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d show up at sites and help out wherever I could.â&#x20AC;? When he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t assisting with fighting fires, Brown, who has spent his whole life in Almonte, worked a number of part-time jobs including one at local business, Petersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ice Cream. Eventually though, after about a year-and-a-half of unofficial service, Brown became a bona fide volunteer firefighter with

Mississippi Mills Fire Chief Art Brown is set to retire in June after more than 45 years of service with the department. what was then known as the Almonte Fire Department. From there, Brown climbed the internal ladder from his starting rank as a firefighter to lieutenant, then to captain and then to deputy chief in 1983. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I learned different things throughout the years,â&#x20AC;? Brown said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I took a bunch of different courses at the fire college and gained the experience that fire chiefs should have.â&#x20AC;? In 1997, the town appointed Brown to the position of the

departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first full-time fire chief. For the past 17 years, he has spent his days leading the team and protecting Mississippi Mills. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an honour to be the first full-time fire chief,â&#x20AC;? Brown said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I consider it both a privilege and honour to be able to serve my community.â&#x20AC;? Over the years, Brown has seen a lot of changes in the department. When he started more than 45 years ago, the team was made up of just 13 firefighters.

Since then, the department has expanded significantly and now has 30 members in Almonte and 22 more in Pakenham. Of course, the coverage area of the department also changed. Up until 1980 when the area was expanded to include Ramsay, the department covered just the town of Almonte. Then, with the amalgamation in 1998, Pakenham joined the area when Mississippi Mills was created. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We cover over 500 square kilometers of land,â&#x20AC;? said Brown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge area with a lot of rural land.â&#x20AC;? Not only did the physical jurisdiction of the department change, though: so too did the methods of fighting fires. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I first became a firefighter, we just had a fire siren on top of town hall,â&#x20AC;? said Brown, explaining that radio communication and portable pagers had not yet been utilized by emergency crews. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is one of the things I will always remember about being on the department â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it was a total game changer.â&#x20AC;? Among his other favourite parts of being the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fire chief, Brown says that passing

on life-saving knowledge to the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s children is one of the most rewarding. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love hearing stories about kids who knew what to do during a fire and then can help their families get out alive,â&#x20AC;? said Brown. Like all good things though, Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time as fire chief has to come to an end. Though heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll miss it, he says, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ready for his retirement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve come to the point where, when I get in my La-Z-Boy after dinner I just want to relax,â&#x20AC;? he joked. Still, it was a hard decision for him, especially since heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forgotten life before the department. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wrote out my resignation letter so many times,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d write it and then throw it away, then write another one and throw it away.â&#x20AC;? While heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll miss the other firefighters and the close friendships heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made, however, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have a lot more time to spend with his family. Brown says that he and his wife, Diane; his two daughters, Heather and Lianna; and his two grandchildren, Dylan, 12, and Adeline, 1, will be happy to have him around.

Howie Road Landfill waste transfer services terminated as of May 1 By KELLY KENT kkent@perfprint.ca

News – As of May 1, 2014, the Howie Road Landfill in Mississippi Mills will no longer offer waste transfer services. At their regular meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 28, Mississippi Mills town council passed a motion to terminate the waste transfer contract with Glenview Iron and Metal (GIM) at the Howie Road Landfill site, effective May 1. “What it means is that we will no longer be accepting garbage at the site,” said Troy Dunlop, the

town’s director of roads and public works. Currently, the Howie Road Landfill acts as a waste and recycle depot where local residents can drop off unwanted garbage, tires, metal and other products. Customers can either pay in cash to dispose of their items, or use a pass. The town issues about 5,000 of these passes, which are like coupons for the free disposal of up to 500 kilograms of waste, each year – one to each household. The new changes to operations will cease the waste services, but keep the recycling services available; customers will still be

able to drop off their old appliances, brush, tires and metals to the facility. In May of 2013, town staff were directed to perform a review of the financial and operational feasibility of the waste transfer options at the Howie Road Landfill, due to the upcoming opening of a new waste facility in Beckwith. Then, in June, the Beckwith Transfer Facility opened its doors to local customers, providing longer, more convenient hours and better prices than the Howie Road site. Soon after, according to a re-

port compiled by Dunlop for the town, the town entered into a contract with Topps Environmental Solutions (TES), which enabled Mississippi Mills residents to use their issued passes at the Beckwith facility as well as the Howie Road site. Since the facility in Beckwith – located at 9271 Cavanagh Road – opened, the town has been monitoring the operations of both waste facilities. In the first five months of the Beckwith facility being open, 76 Mississippi Mills passes were redeemed there. In addition, the overall received tonnage at the Howie Road site dropped by

30 per cent, suggesting that more and more customers were instead choosing to take their business to the Beckwith site. It’s not surprising, Dunlop said. The Beckwith facility is only 15 kilometres away from Almonte, the same distance as the Howie Road Landfill. Add in the convenience of their hours and the $30 per ton savings, the Beckwith facility is an enticing service for Mississippi Mills residents. After reviewing the waste transfer service statistics for 2012 and 2013 for the Howie Road Landfill, town staff found that significant savings could be had

for ceasing that service, according to the report. Because the Howie Road Landfill is just a pit-stop for the town’s garbage – GIM is contracted to ship all of the waste brought to the Howie Road site to another facility – ceasing the waste transfer service at the site, and subsequently terminating the contract with GIM, could save the municipality up to $60,000 per year. “Customers will still have a convenient service nearby with the Beckwith facility,” he said, “and the town stands to save some funds. It’s to everyone’s advantage, really.”

Song, music video featuring Carleton Place to benefit town’s historic auditorium By TARA GESNER tgesner@perfprint.ca

Entertainment – “The town hall sits on the banks of the river. It dances with reflected light. We lost the willow that used to stand in the courtyard on a dark and stormy night.” Quickly engaging the listener, these are the opening lyrics of Lost and Found Town, a song by singer, songwriter and guitarist Kirk Armstrong. Armstrong’s called Carleton Place home since the age of five, nearly 50 years. When asked about the name of the tune, he replied: “There’s been a lot of changes since I moved to town. We’ve lost some things, we’ve found some things.” Lost and Found Town is available for download at CD Baby – the biggest little online record store. The price is $.99 and all proceeds support the rebuilding of the historic town hall

auditorium’s balcony. Coun. Jerry Flynn, a member of the Carleton Place Auditorium (CPA) committee, called Lost and Found Town a generous gift by Armstrong. “I’m just glad they decided to use it,” the humbled musician said. More than a few years ago council formed the CPA committee to watch over the historic venue. “I thought it was a great thing to get involved with, but I didn’t know how at first,” Armstrong said. “Then I wrote the song.” “Although Lost and Found Town is currently offered on the Internet and is being promoted on the town’s Facebook page, the plan is to have it available on CD – by request,” Flynn said. Video A music video using footage that was shot this past July by Jessica Smith, Carleton Place’s community programmer was created.

“It was a really fascinating experience helping Kirk film the Lost and Found Town song, as he put a lot of thought into the locations he wanted to shoot,” Smith said. Each spot was symbolic to the song. “The references to locations and events in Carleton Place throughout the song really came to life when we were on site,” Smith said. Locations included Town Hall Square, Carleton Place Colonnade (parking lot), Thirsty Moose (front step) and former Findlay Stove Company (property). “It was a wonderful experience for me personally,” Smith said, “and I think any lifelong resident of Carleton Place will relate to the song and enjoy the video.” Still images were also incorporated into the video. “As a councillor I was very pleased when Kirk approached me with this idea,” Flynn said, “and I thank him for his offer to

Auditorium Opened on Oct. 25, 1897, the auditorium has hosted such notables as Sir Wilfred Laurier, who

spoke in the grand hall during the 1911 election, and the CFRA Happy Wanderers, who performed a live radio show there back in the 1950s. The acoustics are second to none. Generations of residents have enjoyed the facility. The auditorium boasts an arched ceiling (about 60 feet),

original ornate carved wood and trim, a full pressed tin ceiling and seating for 240 people. Previous improvements include the replacement of the original stage curtain, the addition of air conditioning and two new washrooms, new chairs and a new floor on the famous raked stage. Rebuilding the balcony would mean an addition 60 seats. In recent years there has been an increase in the auditorium’s use and demand. Future Armstrong has been a professional musician for more than 30 years, performing all over Eastern Ontario as both a soloist and with bands. He released his first CD Wire in 2007, which was followed up by his second in 2008 – Island. “I am close to finishing my third CD, which is entitled Dawn,” he said. “It’s taken a long time, but it’s my best work for sure.”

Highway 7 is our road of dreams, nightmares

E

ditorial – Highway 7 is both a blessing and a curse for our area. A blessing in that it brings thousands of commuters and travellers in to our region, and through our region, on their way to cottages, and shopping, and other attractions, throughout the year. A curse, as we saw last week, with the death of a 34-year-old mother of two, who died in a collision just west of Carleton Place. Sadly, her death was not the first collision to take a life on our county’s busiest road, and it won’t be our last. But there are things that can be done to mitigate the terrible driving conditions that she and other drivers were facing last week during the white-out and blowing snow conditions. Namely, snow fences. Large parts of the highway are bordered by wide open farm fields on either side, allowing for blowing snow to play havoc with the road. Some parts of the road are protected by forest and other buffers, but some landowners cut down trees on the edge of their property, removing a barrier

for wind, snow and other elements. Drivers of course need to be mindful of the roads on which they drive as well. Despite bad weather – in winter, spring, summer or fall – some motorists still drive as though it were a beautiful day, not a cloud in the sky, not a care on the road. Yes, the road conditions on Highway 7, and other major thoroughfares like Highways 15 and 43, often change in an instant. It’s January in Canada: police note one needs to drive according to the conditions, leaving earlier if need be, keeping plenty of space between your vehicle and the person in front of you, even, dare we say it, slowing down. All too often, people forget. Highway 7 has also been in the news lately because of the proposed paintball park between Carleton Place and Innisville that was up for debate last month at Drummond/ North Elmsley Township council. While the application has, basically, been put on hold pending environmental assessments and traffic studies, valid points

about traffic were raised on all sides. It is good to see that the applicants are willing to see both studies carried out, especially on the traffic side, since, as one opponent noted, Highway 7 is not a “stopand-start,” road. Indeed, the new Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority headquarters in Carleton Place now have their own turning lane to facilitate the vehicles of workers heading in and out of the building. No problem there – but surely a turning lane for a busy paintball facility down the road should also be considered, and the Ontario Ministry of Transportation is right to say

that the number of entrances should be restricted to one. Making Highway 7 into a four-lane road from Highway 417 to Carleton Place has caused significant changes to the look and feel of that area and the town. There are future plans for expansion of the road between Perth and Carleton Place in the years to come, and we need to learn from the mistakes made during the four-laning process several years ago. No road is ever going to be perfect, but we can all do our part in making our most popular road safer for everyone.

Caldwell one of 15 Canadian schools to take part in Commonwealth Class initiative By TARA GESNER tgesner@perfprint.ca

Doxey said Commonwealth Class organizers would award prizes for the most brilliant work from participating schools. In May a celebration of each teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work will take place. At this time one team will be chosen as the overall winner. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more, each school from the victorious team will be invited to send one teacher and one child to meet each other in Glasgow during the Games. The inaugural task for CSPS students was to upload onto Team Threeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s online project space a welcome message and presentation (poster, PowerPoint or video) on a typical day at their school. Doxey said they would later review submissions from other schools and discuss the similarities and differences between their school and others on their team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are over the moon,â&#x20AC;? she added. CSPS recently participated in an online debate with other member

schools about homelessness. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our students did a phenomenal job,â&#x20AC;? Doxey noted. Last Thursday, the Canadian Gazette spoke to six students taking part in the project, ages 11 and 12: Raine Giff, Lisa Hartill, Abigail Lanouette, Kaeden Martens, Cameron Ryan (student leader) and Emma Vaughan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am really excited,â&#x20AC;? Giff said. During the homelessness debate he enjoyed talking with students from different countries. Ryan and Martens were involved in shooting the video for CSPSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first assignment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We filmed some of the artwork on the walls, kids running around in the gym, the huge (Cubs) mural located at the front doors, students reading the morning announcements, a Grade 2 teacher reading a book in class about India, kids playing in the snow, an indoor recess (because of the cold weather), and the principal and vice princi-

pal,â&#x20AC;? Ryan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am looking forward to working with and learning from people in other countries,â&#x20AC;? Lanouette said. Martens pointed out the number of Team Three countries with warm climates. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The students (in these countries) have never played in snow,â&#x20AC;? he said. A voluntary organiza-

tion, the Commonwealth is comprised of countries from Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, Oceania and South America. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were mostly territories of the former British Empire,â&#x20AC;? Ryan said. Language, history, culture and their shared values of democracy, human rights and the rule of law unite them. R0012539528

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The accolades continue for Caldwell Street Public School (CSPS) in Carleton Place. CSPS has been selected as one of 15 Canadian schools to take part in Commonwealth Class â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a worldwide program offering teaching resources, online debates and interactive activities to mark the run-up to the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is an outstanding opportunity for our school,â&#x20AC;? principal Carole Dufort said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and a rich learning experience for students.â&#x20AC;? The Grade 6 classes of Janet Nelson and Marc Baillon are participating and have been placed into Team Three. Other Team Three schools: Delhi Public School Raipur (India); Army Public School Bangalore (India); Westlands Primary (Kenya); SMKA Al-Irshad (Malaysia); Federal Science and Technical College (Nigeria); Aga Khan Higher Secondary School (Pakistan); Comely Park Primary School (Scotland); Mkhize High School (South Africa); St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s College (Sri Lanka); and Belmonte Boys Secondary School (Trinidad and Tobago). The British Broadcasting Corporation, the British Council and the Commonwealth Secretariat created Commonwealth Class in partnership. In Glasgow thousands of athletes from 70 countries will com-

pete in 17 sports over 11 days, July 23 to Aug. 3. CSPS vice principal Lea Doxey said participating in Commonwealth Class is a great way to expose students to international issues and diversity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Students will learn about the values of the Commonwealth and its many member countries, while tracking the progress of athletes at the Games,â&#x20AC;? she added. Team Three members will follow Trinidadian 400 m hurdles gold medalist Jehue Gordon and Scotlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 400 m hurdler Eihlidh Child. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our students have already been watching video footage of the two athletes,â&#x20AC;? Doxey said. There are 15 teams from 10 different Commonwealth countries participating in this initiative. Each month, from January to May, Team Three will participate in a collaborative task. Other teams will do the same.

World Day of Prayer to be observed in Almonte Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; World Day of Prayer was begun in Canada and the United States in 1922 and is now observed in more than 170 countries. By participating in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s World Day of Prayer service, you are joining in worship with Christians around the world and in almost 2,000 communities across Canada. The host country this year

is Egypt. Unemployment, urbanization and poverty is altering and sometimes destabilizing traditional family support systems. With many families facing a difficult existence in large urban slums, children resort to life on the street. Millions of Egyptian children are born into poverty where malnutrition at a young age translates into lifelong health problems. The

Egyptian Church is deeply involved in initiating and carrying out fruitful projects to help relieve these situations. Everyone is welcome to join us at the Almonte Baptist Church, 207 Reserve Street, Friday, March 7 at 1 p.m. Our guest speaker is Eman Farid from St. George and St. Anthony Coptic Orthodox Church of Egypt, located in Ottawa.

Proposed amendment to remove limitations on agricultural buildings By KELLY KENT kkent@perfprint.ca

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; At their regular meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 28, Mississippi Mills Committee of the Whole passed a motion recommending that council approve a proposed zoning bylaw amendment to remove restrictions regarding agricultural accessory structures. The zoning amendment, according to a report compiled for the committee by town planner Matt Robson, will remove restrictions currently laid out in bylaw 11-83 that limits the

number of accessory buildings on agriculture lands. The current bylaw limits the number of accessory buildings permitted on rural or agricultural lands to two or three, depending on the zoning. This bylaw was implemented by the town in an effort to protect the rural landscape and functionality of the land; however, town staff have found this to be unreasonable in the case of farmers who want to have multiple accessory buildings for use for agriculture, like silos and barns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have found that limit-

ing agricultural buildings to just two or three is insufficient,â&#x20AC;? said town planner Steve Stirling, who spoke to the issue at the meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many farms in the area are expanding and are in need of more buildings to do things like house equipment or store goods.â&#x20AC;? The proposed amendment to the bylaw will differentiate between non-agricultural accessory buildings and agricultural accessory buildings, which are constructed for the purposes of agriculture. If the bylaw amendment is passed, agricultural accessory buildings will not be

restricted on certain lands. Currently, property owners must seek a relief from the zoning bylaw from the town council each time they wish to construct an additional stucture. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think this is a very positive motion,â&#x20AC;? said Coun. Denzil Ferguson, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and I would support it. We have several farms in the area who would benefit from expansion and I think that we should not be holding them back.â&#x20AC;? The town has defined an agricultural accessory building as â&#x20AC;&#x153;a building or structure which is associated with, and located

on lands devoted to agricultural use, used for the housing of farming equipment, livestock and/or the production, storage or processing or agricultural and horticultural produce or feeds.â&#x20AC;? It was added that a greenhouse also falls within those conditions. The town also determined 12 uses where more than three agricultural accessory buildings may be required and laid out the zones in which each of the uses would be permitted. A public meeting was held at 7 p.m. during the meeting, but no members of the public who

were present wished to speak to the matter. There was some discussion from council members, all of which was positive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think this is a great idea,â&#x20AC;? said mayor John Levi. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With all of the farms in the area, I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good to make it easier for them to build whatever they need to run their businesses.â&#x20AC;?

Hang on to your hats: Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum exhibit opens Saturday tgesner@perfprint.ca

Entertainment – Hats off to the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum. The headwear of Bertha Mayhew Schwerdtfeger is celebrated in an exhibition, “A Brimful of Memories: Vintage Hats and Antique Millinery Sundries,” opening on Saturday, Feb. 8, and running until March 1. “The hats are beautiful,” collections manager Jennifer Irwin said. There is no charge to view the exhibit on Feb. 8, but there will be a donation box at the entrance for voluntary cash contributions. “We have such a great vintage collection,” volunteer Linda Seccaspina said. “Hats from all eras.” Her favourite section is Victorian mourning. “It’s to die for,” Seccaspina joked. Everyone loves hats – they are personal items and everyone can relate, whether they wear one or not.s “There are some fun hats on display as well, and some representing local businesses, schools and organizations,” Irwin noted. What’s more, Wisteria will be at the museum on Saturday to host a sale of affordable vintage costume jewelry. “This was entirely Linda’s idea,” Irwin said. “Janice (Martin) and Gail (Sheen-MacDonald) at Wisteria

After viewing pieces from a collection of estate jewelry the consignment store purchased, Seccaspina suggested the partnership. “Everyone thought it would be a great joint event,” Irwin said, “and I want to thank Wisteria for agreeing to this collaboration.” Michael Gauthier of Freedom Photography will be on site with his event booth during the opening.

“Visitors will be able to try on and pose for a portrait in a funky, dress up hat,” Irwin said. Photographs are $10 each and will be ready to take home immediately. Refreshments will also be served. Exhibit The Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum relies heavily on volunteers. “Linda is the best kind of volunteer – dependable, flexible and

above all enthusiastic,” Irwin said, “and this exhibition would never have happened without her.” The museum would like everyone to come out on Saturday and discover the treasure trove that’s been hidden away in acid free boxes. “The story of Bertha Mayhew Schwerdtfeger is an interesting one, it is the story of a local family and a local business,” Irwin said. Mayhew Schwerdtfeger was a milliner and dressmaker on Bridge Street from about 1888 to 1903. “She had learned the trade from her older sisters, Sophia and Adeline, who ran The Misses Mayhew shop in Pakenham,” Irwin explained. “She married the shop keeper next door, barber and tobacconist Henry Schwerdtfeger.” After the births of their two daughters, her store closed in 1903 and her husband’s tobacco shop took over the space. “Bertha continued to work out of her home on Lake Avenue West,” Irwin said, “and when her daughter (Hazel Schwerdtfeger) died in 1988, boxes of hats and hat making supplies were found in the attic of the home.” With great foresight, many of these articles were donated to the local museum by the her estate. “Items from the collection date from the turn of the century through the 1930s,” Irwin said, “and we have added other hats from the museum’s collection to round out the display – including

some high fashion hats from Canadian designers from the 1950s and 1960s.” Approximately 60 hats will be on display. Irwin and Seccaspina have never tried on any of the hats in the collection. “But believe me, we’ve both been tempted!” Irwin said. “I just look and sigh,” Seccaspina added. “The hats in our collection have been donated to us for safekeeping,” Irwin explained, “and to help us teach the public about the past.” Hats and other items are handled with the utmost care

and white gloves are a requirement. The exhibit “is the local fashion history of the town and the family was quite prominent,” Seccaspina said. “Some of the hats have been shown once, but most of the collection has not,” she continued. “It’s a great reason to visit your local museum,” Irwin said, “especially if you’ve never been.” “It is a day that everyone can enjoy,” said Seccaspina. The Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum is located at 267 Edmund St., the former Victoria School.

All mentors will be screened in accordance with the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada National Standards by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lanark County mentoring co-ordinators. Mentors are caring, supportive, and nonjudgmental, with a keen interest in the welfare of young people. Their role is to be an adult companion, a positive role model, a friend, a listener, a limit setter and a resource or guide.

Seniors or recently retired individuals have a wealth of experience and knowledge to share with children in a school setting. The mentors will be paired with a child who they will meet with for an hour once a week at the school. During their hour together the mentors will engage their mentees in a variety of activities that have been mutually agreed upon. These activities may include arts and crafts, reading, playing cards or board games, cooking and baking or playing in the gym. Following these sessions the seniors will gather for the op-

Community – Mills Community Support is launching two exciting new programs which are sure to be fun for everyone involved. Our first new program will pair older adults with developmental disabilities with adult volunteers (55 and older) who have similar interests. They will then have the opportunity to participate in activities and/or civic projects within our community which they both can enjoy together…things like hiking, swimming, painting, attending sports events, movies, volunteering together at community events, or even just meeting for a coffee. The beauty of this program is that it is truly one that offers reciprocal benefits to everyone who becomes involved. For the participants with developmental disabilities the program provides a wonderful connection to other members of their community who share their interests, while at the same time, allowing the volunteer participants to make a meaningful contribution to their community. This is a perfect example of a “winwin” program. To facilitate the startup of this program, we are currently looking for adults, aged 55 and older, who are interested in developing a supportive relationship with an individual who has an intellectual disability, while participating in activities you both enjoy. If you have time and passions to share, this program is for you. To become a volunteer or obtain more information about this great new opportunity, please contact Sarah Byrne at 613-256-1031 ext. 37.

The mentees are children ages seven to 14, who have been identified by the school as requiring the need of a mentor. The children may require assistance in developing self-esteem, self-confidence, or may just need some additional attention from someone.

Chilly the Penguin visits Carleton Place daycare centre By TARA GESNER tgesner@perfprint.ca

Community – The second annual Carleton Place Winter Carnival is right around the corner – on Saturday, Feb. 22 – and spreading the word about the full day of free family fun is carnival mascot Chilly the Penguin. On Tuesday, Feb. 4, Chilly made a quick stop at the town’s daycare centre on Francis Street for a visit with the children. He had just come from Arklan Community Public School. “Helping us gain momentum, Chilly will be attending many events and locations throughout February as we get closer to the carnival,” said Jessica Smith, a member of the carnival’s organizing committee. Smith is also Carleton Place’s community programmer. She noted daycare staff and carnival organizers were “really excited about this meet and greet.” With an attentive audience, daycare staff read the story of Chilly coming to Carleton Place to help with the winter carnival. “The kids were surprised to see him arrive for a visit!” Smith said. Chilly’s story Once upon a time in the far away land of the South Pole lived a friendly penguin named Chilly. Chilly was not like the other penguins; he had bright blue feathers and loved music and dancing. Although Chilly was different, he always knew he was different for a reason and knew he would someday find that purpose. One night a magical wind came in from the

west, and with it brought sparkling wind, jingle bells and Henry, King of the Snowmen! Henry told Chilly of a winter carnival in a small town many days away from the South Pole. He said the town needed Chilly to help make the winter carnival the best it could be for all of the children. Chilly knew this was his moment to shine. “But how will I know how to get there?” Chilly exclaimed. “Follow the dancing snowflakes! Their magic will lead the way,” Henry replied. So Chilly started his voyage to the Town of Carleton Place. His journey took him through windy woods, snowy slopes and frozen falls, but Chilly kept following the dancing snowflakes. Therefore, he knew he was on the right path. Finally the snowflakes stopped moving and pointed Chilly straight ahead. There in the distance he could see the Carleton Place Canoe Club and the Winter Carnival Organizing committee cheering and he knew he had arrived. The committee told him about the wonderful first winter carnival they had and how they need his help to make this year bigger and better than last year. Chilly was excited to help his new friends, but first he knew he had to learn all about Carleton Place and visit the places the residents visit. “So if you see a happy blue penguin around Carleton Place, please make sure you say hello and welcome him to Carleton Place!” Smith Photo by TARA GESNER said.

Local business films commercial for Rogers TV By KELLY KENT kkent@perfprint.ca

Community – Watch for a familiar face on TV in the upcoming weeks. Sean Isaacs, owner of Alliance Coin & Banknote on Mill Street in Almonte, will star in a commercial on the Rogers information channel, which will promote his business and draw coin enthusiasts to town. “We wanted to do something different,” Isaacs said. “The commercial will hopefully reach a wide audience and help to promote the store.” The 30-second commercial was filmed recently by a company called A B See Productions at the store itself and features Isaacs as he talks about the store’s professionalism and knowledge of all things coins. “We’re obviously trying to get business for the store, but we’re also trying to get people away from what I like to call pirates,” he said, explaining that often people get hoodwinked or ripped off by untrustworthy businesses. This is the third commercial that Alliance Coin & Banknote has filmed for the Rogers channel, but it’s been about a

Business – Donna Cook, left, old-fashioned iron in hand, and designer daughter Micaela Cook, stand beside an old, foot-pedal-operated Singer sewing machine during the soft launch of their new fashion store, Avenir Designs, on Mill Street in Almonte on Saturday, Feb. 1. Their store is due to have its grand opening in April.

year since the last one aired. “We like to do this every so often,” Isaacs said. “It’s a good way to get attention from a large audience.” The commercial will air on the Rogers information channel for about six weeks; its first showing was on Monday, Feb. 3. Isaacs said that the information channel is a good one to air on, since his short commercial will air about once an hour, every hour for the duration of its stay there. “It’s kind of strange because we’re advertising to buy rather than sell something,” said Isaacs, “but it can be effective anyway.” The commercial will air regionally, which is good, Isaacs said, because their target audience is people who live about an hour or two away; far enough away that they haven’t heard of Alliance Coin & Banknote but close enough that they can drive out. Their commercial can be viewed on YouTube by searching AllianceCoin in the search bar. As an added bonus, Isaacs also shot a short clip featuring his newly-created Puppets Up! puppet. That video is also available on YouTube.

From town council, Jan. 28: Retirement Mississippi Mills Fire Chief Art Brown, who has been serving the local department for over 45 years, submitted his letter of resignation to council on Jan. 28. He will retire in June, after the new fire chief, who has yet to be named, has gotten a chance to learn how things work around the department. “(Brown) has been an integral part of our community in many capacities for a number of years,” Mayor John Levi said. “He certainly deserves some time to relax and have fun. I wish him the best.”

Delayed meetings Two pubic meetings, for the town’s 2014 draft budget and the 2014 water and sewer budget, that were on the agenda to be held during the town’s Committee of the Whole were delayed to a further meeting due to lack of advertisement. It was suggested they be held at the Feb. 18 meeting instead.

Council attendance Documents outlining the meeting attendance records for the 11 town council members were also included in the agenda for the Committee of the Whole meeting on Jan. 28. The record shows absences for each councillor from both council and Committee of the Whole meet-

Real estate board continues support of Carleton Place & District Youth Centre Community – The Carleton Place & District Youth Centre recently received a boost which will help them in continuing to serve the community. Just before Christmas, the youth centre celebrated a grant of $3,425 from the Ontario REALTORS Care Foundation and the Ottawa Real Estate Board, presented by Jeff McMaster, broker/manager at Royal LePage Gale Real Estate in Carleton Place who is also on the centre’s board of directors. According to McMaster, each year he applies for the grant through REALTORS Care, which is operated by the Ontario Real Estate Association and provides funds to shelter-related charities across the province.

and helps them with housing, instead of them going to shelters in the winter,” she stated. “We have no emergency shelter in Lanark County, so we have to take (youth) to Ottawa or Kingston. If they come here, they can eat, do their laundry, get warm, hang out and access food here if they’re couch surfing.” She thanked McMaster for his support of the youth centre and cited him as the reason for making this grant a reality each year since 2010. “The only reason we’re around this grant is because of our partnership with Royal LePage (Gale Real Estate). We thank them very much,” LinkLepine commented. The Carleton Place & District Youth Centre was established in 1995 and offers educational, social, recreational and cultural programs and services for youth aged 10 to 19.

Celebrate spring at Fultonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pancake House & Sugar Bush Feb. 15 By KELLY KENT kkent@perfprint.ca

Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; While many Mississippi Mills residents are likely counting down the days until spring and warmer weather, there is a silver lining to be found in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s frigid winter temperatures: maple syrup. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People need to be celebrating the cold weather,â&#x20AC;? said Shirley Fulton-Deugo, owner of Fultonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pancake House and Sugar Bush. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The constant freezing temperatures mean the maple trees have been able to have a long dormancy, and are likely to produce a lot of maple syrup!â&#x20AC;? Fultonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s will open its doors for the first time this year on Saturday, Feb. 15, ringing in the maple syrup season with a weekend full of sugary goodness. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first weekend is always so exciting,â&#x20AC;? Fulton-Deugo said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You know what Christmas feels like? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what opening day feels like for us.â&#x20AC;? Pancakes smothered with syrup from Fultonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s famous pancake house will be available as early as 9 a.m. on Saturday, but the restaurant will remain open daily until 4 p.m. for those not-so-early risers. As always, the sugar bushâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

opening weekend will have a plethora of attractions for locals to enjoy: face painting, horse-drawn sleigh rides and of course, taffy on snow. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Taffy on snow is always a special treat,â&#x20AC;? Fulton-Deugo said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a sure sign that spring is on its way.â&#x20AC;? Also featured on Saturday and Sunday will be Danny Albert, Almonteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s well-known teenaged fiddle playing star. Since their opening weekend falls on the three-day weekend created by Family Day on Monday, Feb. 17, Fultonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening weekend celebration has been extended for one day. To take advantage of the extra day, the sugar bush is hosting a two-day Backyard Sugar Makers course on Sunday and Monday. For a cost of $20 per family, participants will learn the ins and outs of making maple syrup on their own property. All the skills needed to make homemade syrup, from tapping trees to boiling the sap, will be taught over the two days from 12:30 to 2 p.m. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really great to do it now, before the sap starts to flow,â&#x20AC;? said Fulton-Deugo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That way families can take what they learned and get set up in time to make syrup this spring.â&#x20AC;? Anyone interested can call

the Fultonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office at 613-2563867 to reserve a spot. FultonDeugo said she recommends that children be more than six-years-old so they can fully participate. Opening weekend at Fultonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s will also be a great opportunity to see their new look: over the summer the business â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which has been open since 1969 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; underwent some renovations. They updated the restaurant and gave it fresh dĂŠcor, constructed a new play structure and they even got a new website. All of their renovations are geared to focus on the businessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s long history. Hurry, though: this iconic attraction is only open for 10 short weeks every year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We feel like thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good length of time,â&#x20AC;? Fulton-Deugo said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That way folks can enjoy us during two seasons: winter and spring.â&#x20AC;? During that time, when the sap begins to flow â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the weather needs to be around 5 C during the day and -5 C at night â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Fultonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s produces anywhere from 500 to 1,000 gallons of maple syrup.

Along with thanking our campaign sponsors and introducing our Caring for Our Community capital campaign team, we will be announcing several unique fundraising events that will captivate the interest of those communities that we serve.” The capital campaign launch breakfast will cost $15 per person and tickets can be reserved by phoning St. John House at 613-342-2974.

Our goal of raising $350,000 in an eight-month period is aggressive and is acknowledged by our provincial office as being the largest capital campaign in their corporate memory. Every dollar raised in this campaign will stay in Leeds-Grenville and Lanark counties helping our members care for those communities. We will be unveiling several unique events that will be of interest to a wide range of our residents during each month of the campaign. We are confident that our communities will care for us by donating to the Caring for Our Community campaign!” Submitted by St. John Ambulance.

Community – After marking a quarter century assisting those in need the Lanark County Food Bank moves into its 26th year with a regenerated volunteer board of directors. Last year, four highly determined and passionate volunteers joined the board to lend their weight in the fight against poverty and in particular the fight for adequate safe and nutritional food for those in need in our local communities. These communities include Carleton Place, Mississippi Mills (Almonte and the former Townships of Pakenham and Ramsay), Innisville, Ashton and While Lake. Supporting the board is a paid parttime manager, and approximately 30 dedicated volunteers who provide front line service to our clients. The food bank, located in Carleton Place, is a non-profit, volunteer driven organization whose mission is the provision of safe and nutritional food assistance to persons in need. The bank

News – On Jan. 1, the St. John Ambulance Brigade of Leeds-Grenville and Lanark began a capital campaign that will then run until Sept. 1. This one-time only fundraiser is aptly titled Caring for Our Community because since the founding of this brigade in 1959, the volunteer members have attended thousands of events in the tri-counties while donating tens of thousands of hours in volunteer time. The goal for this capital campaign is to raise $350,000 that will then be used to: • Pay off the mortgage on St. John House – the brigade’s headquarters located in Brockville. That action will free up almost $18,000 for our annual operating budget. • Build a garage for the brigade’s three service vehicles that are such an integral part of our community service. This shelter will protect the vehicles from the harsh winter weather and help save on repair costs. • Establish an endowment fund in honour of the Hon. John R. Matheson who was one of the founders of this brigade in 1959. Part of the funds generated by this endowment fund will be used to provide bursaries for graduating members of our junior or adult brigades who are pursuing post-secondary education. Celebrating our 55th year of service caring for our communities in 2014, we are reaching out to those multitudes of people in Leeds-Grenville and Lanark counties who have been touched by the work of our volunteers. These brigade volunteers have led the province two years in a row (2011-2012) for the most number of hours served per person. The St. John Ambulance Brigade has been there for our tri-counties in providing: First Aid, CPR & AED training; medical first response services; therapy dog services; youth services; and car seat safety services. The Caring for Our Community capital campaign will have an official launch on Valentine’s Day – Friday, Feb. 14 – with a special breakfast that will be sponsored by Burnbrae Farms and the Egg Farmers of Ontario at CJ’s Banquet Hall in Brockville beginning at 7:30 a.m. At that time, the campaign team will be introduced, headed by campaign chair Richard Dumbrille of

Canadians add two more lopsided wins Sports – The beat goes on for the Carleton Place Jr. A Canadians. The Central Canada Hockey League club manhandled two rivals on the road over the weekend, extending their latest winning streak to eight games. After knocking off the struggling Gloucester Rangers 6-2 Friday at the Earl Armstrong Arena, they did one better on Sunday afternoon in Pembroke, hammering the Lumber Kings 6-1. While the Canadians continue to get no love in the Central Junior Hockey League rankings – actually dropping one spot to number 5 in Canada this week – they continue to pull away in the Robinson Division and CCHL standings. With Smiths Falls losing to the Rangers on Sunday, the Canadians (42-6-0-1 for 85 points) now have a 16-point lead on the second place Bears (33-14-3-0). The Ottawa Jr. Senators, who lead the Yzerman Division entering play this week, are at 62 points (30-17-0-2). Sunday in front of 1,345 fans at the Pembroke Memorial Centre, the Canadians blew open a tight showdown with four quick goals in the third period. Andy Sturtz, Larry

Smith, Tyson Stewart and Evan Peterson – with his second of the game – scored between the 3:25 and 9:31 marks to help their team pull away. Peterson and Anthony McVeigh put the Canadians up late in the second following a scoreless first period. The Lumber Kings imploded in the final frame, taking 15 penalties, including several majors, over the final 20 minutes. Canadians special teams were in high gear in this one, scoring three times on the power play and once shorthanded. Goalie Guillaume Therien was steady again, coming within 4:25 of his first shutout of the season. Only Felix Chamberland of the Kings managed to beat him, the power play goal coming with the game already well in hand. As it was, Therien picked up a 32-save victory, lowering his goals against average to 2.54 and boosting his save percentage to .919. At the other end, Kings goalie Darren Smith was less impressive, allowing six goals on 25 shots in 50:58 of work. Backup Sean Keating stopped all four shots he faced in his nine minutes between the pipes. Not surprisingly, the Canadians swept the three stars

Thunder hang on to playoff spot as Valley Division standings tighten By STAFF

Sports – A split of their back-to-back road games at Shawville last weekend keeps the Almonte Thunder in third place in the ever-tightening Valley Division standings. At 14-15-2-4, the local Jr. B club sits at 34 points, one point up on Stittsville Royals, two ahead of Shawville and three up on the Perth Blue Wings. Saturday afternoon at Shawville, with their season on the line, the Thunder put in a gutsy performance against the surging Pontiacs. Having lost the night before 5-2 and trailing 4-2 in the third

period, Almonte strung together three straight goals over the final 14 minutes of regulation to secure a huge 5-4 win. Brandon Mendham was the hero in this one, scoring on the power play at 16:53 what turned out to be the gamewinning goal for the Thunder. Assisting on the play were Brendan Rousselle and Luke Martin. Andrew Rowbotham had sparked the comeback earlier in the period with his second goal of the game at 6:18, from Justin Marquis and Tyler McKechnie. It was Rowbotham’s team-leading 21st goal of the year. Riley Shore then tied things up 4-4 at

the 11:10 mark, assisted by Rowbotham – his fourth point of the game – and Mendham. The two teams had traded goals in the first period with Shore and Rowbotham connecting for Almonte and Mathew Labrosse and Gabriel Nigig Tolley responding for Shawville. The Pontiacs had a 3-2 lead after two periods thanks to Labrosse’s second goal of the game. And they extended that lead to 4-2 early in the third on a goal from Christopher Bones. Goalie Richard Barr picked up the win for the Thunder, making 30 saves in the game. Danick Boisvert was victim-

ized for five goals off 35 Thunder shots and suffered the regulation loss. The night before, the Pontiacs broke open a scoreless game with four secondperiod goals en route to the 5-2 win that temporarily tied them with the Thunder in the EOJHL Valley Division standings. Julian Dumont led the Shawville attack with a hat trick. Singles went to Mathew Labrosse and Etienne Tremblay-Fortin. A pair of power play goals by Mendham and Rousselle made things interesting late in the third Dumont’s hat trick goal with 90 seconds left in regulation sealed the Thunder’s fate.

Goalie Alex Daley recorded 24 saves in the loss. Boisvert was sharp, kicking out 38 of the 40 Thunder shots he faced. This week The Thunder hosted a huge divisional game on Tuesday night against the Perth Blue Wings. Results of the game were not available at press time. Thunder also host a pair of games this weekend as the season enters its final week. The division-leading Renfrew Timberwolves are the opponent on Saturday night. Game time is 7:30 p.m. Then the Pontiacs make one final visit to Almonte on Sunday afternoon, Feb. 9. Puck drop for that one is 2:20 p.m.

Strictly for the Birds LYNDA C. BENNETT

Many house sparrows found in area Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Cold weather with blowing snow reminds us that winter is still here. A surprising observation came from Ralph Cotterill of Mississippi Mills. He observed a Belted Kingfisher checking open water in a pond on his property, Jan. 25. Kingfishers and Great Blue Herons occasionally stay through the winter in Lanark County with open water available for searching for food. From my question last week regarding House Sparrows, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had positive replies. One gentleman from the Almonte area has lots of them in his barn. Even the house cats ignore them. There are sparrows in Pakenham as well. They can be found around Pakenham General Store and about the 5 Span Feed and Seed business. My neighbor, Sylvia Sirret, has had a male Northern Cardinal come in to her feeder Jan. 19. I have been seeking one for my 2014 year list, and finally saw one at a feeder in Kanata. A friend of Peter Slepica told of seeing a large bird flying over Clayton Jan. 24. He described the bird to Peter, who said it was likely a Bald Eagle. Peter called to see if any were in the area. Yes, they are here all year, but not often seen. One has been seen along Clayton Road, and I spotted it on Jan. 28. Four Wild Turkeys perched in the deciduous trees nearby. Peter heard an American Robin two weeks ago, then it came to his feeders. Blue Jays, Dark-eyed Juncos, Mourning Doves, and Wild Turkeys are also feathered visitors. Two and a half weeks ago, Peter had some Evening Grosbeaks visit, but they have left. A lady from Prospect, Deborah Fisher, has a starling-like bird coming to her feeder. She called to ask about it. It is definitely a starling, but in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;winterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; dress, with noticeable spots on the feathers, which last until spring. Georgina Doe and I travelled into Barrhaven to see reported Barrowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Goldeneyes, birds from western Canada, Jan. 28. A bit of open water held two female, and two male Barrows and one male Common Goldeneye. Please call Lynda at 613-256-5013 or email bennett@magma.ca, with bird reports.

Sandra Dormer, Red Hat Society Ambassador and Queen of the Carleton Place chapter’s Shopping Sherpas, was recently named to the society’s prestigious Diamond Club. The international organization has only named 10 women to the club. Above, during a recent trip to Toronto, Dormer, centre in her Red Hat finest, attended a taping of the Steven and Chris show, hosted by Steven Sabados, left, and Chris Hyndman. dor and Queen of the Shopping Sherpas – a chapter in Carleton Place, Dormer is a member of two other Red Hat chapters so she has plenty of opportunities to dress up in the unmistakeable red hat and purple outfit of the society. She said, “Of course when I am out and about dressed as a hatter, anyone that comments on my regalia (red hat and purple outfit) is guaranteed to hear about all the fun we have, the lack of rules, the freedom we each have to play in whatever manner we wish, the support we provide each other. I am a tad enthusiastic about the organization.” Her enthusiasm was more than evident on Jan. 9 when, dressed as a hatter, she attended a taping of the popular Steven and Chris

show in Toronto. The friend that accompanied her, joked that she was afraid that they would be ejected from the studio for delaying the start of the taping because so many women wanted to talk to Dormer about the society. Dormer said she has often wondered if any of those to whom she has spoken ever actually researched joining the society. Now she knows that at least 15 of them did! As a member of the Diamond Club, Dormer will receive (amongst other things): automatic entry to win free registration to the annual international conference in San Francisco (she has already registered and will attend regardless); VIP front row seating at the San Francisco international convention; acknowl-

Community – As little children we were taught to play nice and invite other children to play with us. The Red Hat Society (RHS), the world’s largest play group for women operates on much the same principle. Membership has always grown most successfully through the actions and kind, generous words of outgoing, energetic members of the society. Inviting friends to participate has always been the keystone to the RHS future. In 2013, amazing Hatters were recognized by the RHS for their efforts in ensuring the society’s legacy of fun and friendship. The international organization, which has chapters in 32 countries and boasts a membership of more than 70,000 worldwide has named only 10 women to their Diamond Club. Each nominee, as of July 31, had referred at least 15 new members to the RHS. Sandra Dormer, RHS Ambassador and Queen of the Carleton Place Shopping Sherpas, is one of the few Canadians named to the Diamond Club. When Dormer received her Winter 2013 Red Hatter Matters digital magazine from the Red Hat Society, she leisurely worked her way through it and was, to say the least, surprised to see that she had been honoured in such a way. Though she knew it existed, she had no idea she was even in consideration for membership in the Diamond Club. “I am always willing to talk about the society and I must admit that even when dressed as a civilian (i.e., no red hat) I do encourage almost everyone I meet to join, whether it’s another shopper, a store clerk, someone at the gym, a neighbour or someone who comments on the red hat decals on my car, I just cannot curb my enthusiasm for this fun-loving, inclusive organization,” she said.

MVTM launches new fibre exhibit, runs until March 15 Community – If you thought felt was used only in hats and other fashion accessories, the upcoming installation at the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum will be an eye-opener. ‘Transformations’ opens on Jan. 21 and runs until March 15. The exhibit features the work of Canadian fibre artists Maggie Glossop and Andrea Graham who use the ancient art of felt making to create unique works that fascinate and delight. Both are inspired by nature but are very different in approach and style. Glossop has been working with fibres since the mid-1970s. She first explored the creative uses of fibres as a spinner and weaver, and then, 25 years ago, joined the vanguard of textile

artists exploring felt making as a medium for fine art. Using wool and other natural fibres that she has dyed, she creates wonderful textured landscapes and sculptured wall pieces. Glossop shares her enthusiasm and creativity with young and old and has received many awards and grants to support and further her outreach as a teacher as well as for her works, which are displayed in public, corporate and private spaces. “Rocks, water, trees and sky – these are the subjects of my art,” said Glossop. “I am drawn to the ever-changing natural environment that surrounds me. I invite the viewer to focus on the beauty that is all around us but is often overlooked. I hope to awaken the

viewer to see again or perhaps to see for the first time with new eyes and, having seen, appreciate what was always there.” Graham is a multimedia artist residing in rural Ontario. She exhibits, teaches and lectures internationally and is recognized for her technical skill and innovation. She is a 2013 Niche Award Finalist and was also named one of the top influences in contemporary fibre art by Fiber Art Now magazine. Graham was Artist in Residence at Queen’s University in 2011 and has taught workshops for numerous guilds and conferences throughout North America and Europe. Using both traditional and modern felt-making techniques, she transforms wool fibres and

produces sculptures that evoke living organisms. U “Life cycles silently occur and often go without notice,” said Graham. “We acknowledge these cycles at times of transformation, which can elicit feelings from awe and reflection to unease and denial. These transformations remind us of life’s dichotomy of persistence and surrender. Whether we neglect or intervene, we are at the mercy of these processes. In expressing these transformations using humble materials and simple form, I seek to bring about these primal emotions we feel at these pivotal moments.” The Mississippi Valley Textile Museum is located at 3 Rosamond St. E., Almonte.

WITH THANKS

I would like to thank those who comforted and consoled me in the unbearable loss of my true love, John. I thank our friends, neighbours, and teachers and staff of The Stewart School. Your visits, phone calls, cards, flowers, food, and donations in John’s memory were very much appreciated. I am so grateful to Chuck for making John’s Explorer sparkle again. Thank you to Dr. McLean for his attention and concern for John over the years. Also, thank you to the nurses and doctors on Davies 4 at KGH for their great care of John. The compassion of Stewart Blair and his staff was comforting at a very difficult time. Thanks to my wonderful family for being there for me then, now and always. My John touched many lives and will be greatly missed and loved by me forever. Ann Cheffins & Family

J. ARDEN HUNTER September 8, 1942– January 25, 2014

After a lifetime of hard work and dedication to agriculture, John Arden Hunter entered into eternal rest at the Perth site of the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital on Saturday, January 25, 2014. Cherished son of the late Gordon Condie Hunter (19191983) and his wife, Gertrude Mae (née Rice) Hunter (1919-2011). Devoted brother of Perry G. Hunter and eldest nephew of Lois Hunter, both of Smiths Falls. Fondly remembered by several cousins and their families, extended family members, and friends. Predeceased by his grandparents Alex and Mae (née Armstrong) Rice and John and Effie (née Condie) Hunter, several aunts and uncles including Lavurn and Loreen Hawley, John K. and Margaret Hunter, and Donald Hunter who all resided in the Smiths Falls area. Being involved actively in 4-H during his younger years, Arden went on to serve the agricultural community as a Dairy Herd Improvement supervisor throughout Lanark, Leeds, and Grenville counties for many years. He was well-respected by his clients and, in turn, he was welcomed into their homes which resulted in lifelong friendships. Upon his retirement, Arden was extremely proud of the award presented to him by the agricultural community recognizing his commitment, tireless work, and unequivocal support for his clients. In retirement, Arden never slowed down and he continued the “Hunter” tradition of raising purebred Holsteins, Suffolk sheep, and Charolais cattle on the family farm within South Elmsley Township. Following in his father’s footsteps, Arden was a member of the Holstein Association of Canada for more than 40 years. He took pride in the simple pleasures of life such as a bountiful crop, a sunny day, good home cooking, and a short winter. Special thanks goes to Dr. McLean and the dedicated staff at Lanark Lodge in Perth for the excellent care and compassion shown to Arden while his health was declining. Relatives and friends are invited to pay their respects at the Blair and Son Funeral Home, 112 Beckwith St. N., Smiths Falls on Monday, February 10, 2014 from 2 to 5 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. or on Tuesday, February 11, 2014 from noon until the time of the service in the Blair and Son Chapel at 2 p.m. Following the “Celebration of Life” service, Arden will be laid to rest alongside his mother and father in the family plot at Maple Vale Cemetery. In memory of Arden, contributions to the Maple Vale Cemetery Association or the Ottawa Heart Institute would be gratefully acknowledged. “When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure.”

FEBRUARY

Just inside the main entrance of the C.R. Gamble Funeral Home is a book of remembrance. Each day we turn a page in the book. The names of those we have served are inscribed on that date along with the year in which they passed away. It is our way of honouring and remembering a life that was lived. It is also our way of saying “thank you” to the many families who have shown confidence in us since we came to Almonte in 1973. As of July 1, 2014, our “We Remember” publication will only run in

The Millstone on-line newspaper. The Millstone covers Mississippi Mills and aligns well with the community our funeral home serves. Both my Dad and I have some ideas as to how we would like to move forward in honouring your loved ones. We hope to have these ideas come to fruition within the next couple of years. Should you have any questions, concerns or thoughts about our decision, please don’t hesitate to contact us directly by telephone, e-mail, or in person. “We Remember”

RAYMIE DONALDSON (February 5, 2013) We will take this special moment to turn our thoughts to Dad Thank him for a home of love and all the things we had We think about the fleeting years too quickly gone for good It seems like only yesterday and we’d all go back if we could To a time when Dad was always there, no matter what the weather Always strong when things went wrong, he held our lives together He strived so hard from day to day and never once complained With steady hands, he worked so hard to honour our family name He taught us that hard work pays off; you reap just what you sow He said that if you tend your crops, your fields will overflow Our lives have been so bountiful; he taught us how to give In his firm and steadfast way, he taught us how to live Dad dwells among the angels now, he left us much too soon He glides across a golden field above the harvest moon We see him in the summer rain, he rides upon the wind And when our path is beaten down, he picks us up again. Love you forever, love you for always Feryn, Cathy, Patti, Larry and families

URQUHART, Frank – Jan. 26, 1923 - Feb. 9, 2013. In loving memory of a dear husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. We knew that morning God was going to call your name, In life we loved you dearly, In death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, You did not go alone, For part of us went with you, The day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, You love is still our guide, And though we cannot see you, You are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, And nothing seems the same, But as God calls us one by one, The chain will link again. Sadly missed Olive and family

FRASER - In loving memory of our dear daughter and sister, Heather, who passed away January 29, 1985. Twenty nine sad and lonely years have passed, Since our great sorrow fell How well we do remember, That sad and weary day. God gave us the strength to meet it The courage to bear the blow. But what it meant to lose you Heather, No one will ever know Friends may think we have forgotten, When at times they see us smile But they little know the heartache, Our smiles hide all the while. They say time heals all sorrows and helps you to forget But time has only proved how much we miss you yet. Always loved and sadly missed Dad, Laurie, Scott, Fraser, Joey & Ethan

News – The following are highlights from the regular United Counties of Leeds and Grenville Council meeting held Jan. 23 are listed below. The 2014 United Counties draft budget outlining $85million in operational spending and just under $17cmillion in capital projects was presented to council Thursday. Corporate services director and treasurer, Nigel White provided highlights of the proposed budget to members of council and asked them to review and provide feedback at the next Committee of the Whole meeting on Feb. 4. The draft proposes an overall net expenditure increase of $541,693, or 1.38 per cent in net operating expenditures for all services and programs. The total capital budget is set at $16,904,971. It includes $1.5 million in additional funds for public works projects and $3.2 million in projects carried over from last year. It’s a decrease from last year’s $20.4 million in capital spending when $6 million was needed to upgrade regional fire communications. There will be a levy requirement increase of $1,674,415. A total of 32,986 resident’s property tax bills will increase by $29 per year, or $2.42 per month. The Counties taxation base includes real growth (new assessment) of $442,246, or an increase of 1.3 per cent. A $14.3 million budget was presented to the joint services committee of Leeds and Grenville on Feb. 5. Counties adopts five-year accessibility plan The United Counties has adopted an accessibility plan spanning 2014 to 2018 inclusive. The multi-year plan is a requirement under the Accessibility for Ontarians with

THE EMC - 44 - Thursday, February 6, 2014

Disabilities Act. The goal is to make Ontario accessible by 2025. The United Counties’ plan outlines strategies for removing barriers, preventing new ones, and indicates how the Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation is being met. The Customer Service Standard was adopted by the Counties in 2009 with training to all staff, service providers, contractors, volunteers, and council. The plan addresses accessibility policies, training, procuring goods and services, information and communications, emergency plans and public safety information, and employment. The United Counties does not operate any public transit, taxi licensing or self-serve kiosks so no policies will be developed in these areas. Old Town Kemptville request turned down Counties council has turned down a motion to provide up to $15,000 in funding to help the Kemptville Business Improvement Area (BIA) develop a promotional campaign to bring consumer traffic back to the community’s downtown core. Both the Municipality of North Grenville and the Kemptville BIA have stated businesses in Old Town Kemptville have been hurt by the closure of County Road 44, a thoroughfare leading into the town from the south. The road has been closed since work began in early summer 2013 on the Canadian Pacific Railway Bridge. The project was to have been completed Nov. 30. In December, the Kemptville BIA asked the Counties for funds to help develop a marketing strategy. The matter was deferred until this week with some councillors asking

for more information on the plan and traffic patterns, and whether or not the Municipality of North Grenville should put money toward it first. Some also felt it was precedent setting, opening up the possibility for communities to approach the Counties for funds due to road construction. An amendment to defer the matter a second time was rejected by council, followed by a majority voting against the original motion to provide funding. There was considerable discussion with suggestions of in-kind support from the Counties and possible reconsideration of the motion if more information is brought forward. Council member Dave Gordon, Mayor of the Municipality of North Grenville, said he would gather data and provide marketing strategy details to counties council in a bid to keep Old Town Kemptville from becoming “a ghost town.” Chief administrative officer, Andy Brown said liquidated damage payments from the construction firm are $1,000 for each day the project goes beyond its original completion date. Upcoming meetings Committee of the Whole on Tuesday, Feb. 4; joint services committee on Wednesday, Feb. 5; Monday, Feb. 17 Offices closed for Family Day; joint services committee on Wednesday, Feb. 19; counties council on Thursday, Feb. 20. All meetings begin at 9 a.m. in the council chambers at 25 Central Avenue, Brockville. For more information contact county clerk, Lesley Todd at 613-342-3840 ext. 2454. Submitted by the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville.
