News – Carleton Place politicians managed to stay out of the doghouse last Tuesday, March 4, during the municipality’s planning and protection committee meeting. Council chambers were packed once again as residents turned out to hear an update regarding a proposed Lanark Animal Pound (LAP) in Montague Township. Many local residents want Carleton Place to continue its current arrangement with the Lanark Animal Welfare Society (LAWS) for animal pound services. The municipality rents five pound spaces at LAWS, which is enough for two dogs and three cats. The agreement runs until the end of 2014. Located near Smiths Falls, LAWS has been caring for abused, abandoned and lost animals for more than 35 years. It is a no-kill shelter. Municipalities have a legislative responsibility to provide a pound (not a shelter). As a result, the LAP would be a pound only facility, keeping the animals in its care for a redemption period

Optimistic “A meeting was set between the (LAP) working group and LAWS for Jan. 31,” Les Reynolds said. Reynolds is the town’s director of protective services and fire chief, and a member of the LAP working group. Other group members: Drummond/North Elmsley, Lanark Highlands, Mississippi Mills, Montague, Perth and Tay Valley, and Rideau Lakes recently indicated an interest. “I can report the meeting went well,” Reynolds said. “We went away with a couple of new ideas. We are very optimistic.” The LAP working group is considering a scenario where the building in Montague would be constructed to a larger scale and leased to LAWS. “LAWS would use the facility for its shelter function,” Reynolds explained, “and as part of the deal they would provide pound services to the municipalities.” The new building would replace the current LAWS shelter, which is located at

253 Glenview Rd. “It would provide LAWS with a new building, which is something they’ve wanted for quite a number of years to ensure long-term stability,” Reynolds continued, “and it would be in a location that is better for a majority of Lanark County residents.” “It improves service and gives the municipalities the stability they need,” he said, “and if something unforeseen happened down the road, we already have a facility that’s up and running.” Under the new scenario, the municipality’s responsibility for an animal would not extend past the impound period. “At the end of the impound period the animal would go from being a pound animal to a shelter animal,” Reynolds said. When questioned about would happen if the shelter was full, he commented: “You’d have to ask LAWS. It has nothing to do with the municipality.” LAWS president Kathryn Hoyland spoke with Reynolds on March 4. “She told me to feel free to See POUND page A/CP2

Community – The 24th annual Maple Tapping Out Party of the Lanark and District Maple Syrup Producers Association was held on Saturday, March 8 at Quabbin Hill Farm owned by Greg and Lynda Halladay in Mallorytown. Far left, owners Lynda, right, held the bucket while Greg drilled the hole to put the spout in a maple tree to gather sap. Each year the tapping out party takes place in either Lanark, Frontenac County, Leeds and Grenville or Ottawa-Carleton areas of eastern Ontario. There are about 70 maple syrup producers located in these regions. Left, Tom Stephenson watches the sap boil in the pot set over an open fire as they used to do years ago.

News – Lanark County, in eastern Ontario, carries the distinctly Canadian designation of being the “Maple Syrup Capital of Ontario”. With the regions magnificent sugar maple trees growing in mineral rich soils more than 100 family maple farms harvest some of the world’s highest quality ‘liquid gold’. One such farm is owned and operated by Vernon and Judy Wheeler and their family. Wheeler’s Pancake House and Maple Sugar Camp is one of the largest maple farms in Ontario collecting maple sap from more than 20,000 trees. More than 30,000 visitors annually flock to sample some of the Wheeler’s fresh maple syrup on fluffy stacks of pancakes at the on-site log chalet style restaurant that overlooks the maple forest. Starting at the young age of six Vernon learned the art of sugarmaking at his family’s farm. In 1978 he and his wife Judy ventured out on their own and started sugaring on 730 acres near McDonalds Corners. Maple flows in the veins of Vernon and out of his respect and admiration for the innovators of maple syrup making, from the First Peoples to the present, he began collecting items relating to maple syrup production. In 2000, Wheelers Maple Heritage Museum was opened to the public to display Vernon’s vast collection.

Mel’s Farm prepares for spring kitten barrage with fundraiser March 22 Community – Each year, animal shelters and rescues across Canada are flooded with homeless litters of newborn kittens. Kitten season, which begins each spring and peaks in late spring or early summer, puts immense pressure on the already limited resources available to these non-profit organizations. During this season, a female cat can go into heat every three weeks, which means that a feline can give birth multiple times and have as many as 18 kittens. Melanie Young, founder of Mel’s Farm All Animal Rescue, is gearing up with her faithful volunteers to help rescue and find homes for the flood of kittens that will be born in the coming months. “It’s always a difficult time, and we don’t like to turn people away,” said Young.

“Foster homes are the key to saving as many kittens as possible, as we are a foster based rescue.” Founded in April, 2013, Mel’s Farm All Animal Rescue, based in Lanark County, is a volunteer run rescue organization, which takes in, cares for, and rehomes animals of all kinds. Through loyal and growing support from the local community, the group has adopted a true “no-kill” policy, and aims to help people in the community who require assistance with animals. Young’s ethic is evident in the vision of the rescue. “We’ve saved dogs, and cats, and we’ve saved skunks and pigs. There isn’t any animal we won’t try to help. We also educate, raise awareness, and advocate on animal welfare issues. We are truly

a voice for the voiceless.” To help with the spring kitten barrage, Young and volunteers have organized a clothing sale which will take place on Saturday, March 22, at County Fair Mall in Smiths Falls, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. “This is one of many events, however, the proceeds from this clothing sale will go directly to our spring kitten fund,” Young said. “Everyone involved is strictly in it for the animals, and to see the work and dedication that goes into planning these fundraising events really demonstrates that this is truly a labour of love.” April is the one-year anniversary of the rescue, which has seen steady and growing support from the local community. “We try to support and promote our

community and small businesses with everything we do. It’s very humbling to see how much we’ve grown thanks to this community, and I’m excited to see where we’ll be on our second anniversary,” said Young. For more information about the upcoming clothing sale please visit www.melsfarm.ca or call 613-430-5297. Also available on the website: foster applications, a donation link, wish list, and a list of adoptable pets.

Five ways you can help with the spring kitten season: • Spay or neuter your cats. Kittens as young as two months and weighing two pounds can be safely altered. • Make a donation of money, supplies, or time. Mel’s Farm is always happy to receive any donation, and operates solely on donations and the hard work of volunteers. • Care for homeless or feral cats in your area. The best way

to reduce the feral cat population is to trap, spay/neuter, and release feral cats. • Become a foster cat parent. Contact Mel’s Farm All Animal Rescue to foster a cat family. As a foster-based rescue, Mel’s Farm can take in, and therefore save, more animals when foster homes are available. • Adopt a cat. Mel’s Farm has many beautiful cats, and other pets, available for adoption. Submitted by Mel’s Farm.

Marijuana use could increase risk of schizophrenia News – Smoking marijuana doesn’t cause schizophrenia, but if one is predisposed to it, it can bring it to the fore faster. And, tragically for sufferers, about 13 per cent of schizophrenia cases could have been avoided if they had not used cannabis in the first place. Taking a wider look, regular cannabis use in your adolescence (ages 12 to 15) makes those smokers more likely to develop schizophrenia. While these statistics paint a foreboding picture, for Dr. Darren Courtney, MD, clinical director of the youth inpatient unit at the Royal Ottawa Hospital, he has seen first-hand how marijuana use has had an impact on the mental health of his patients. One patient of his, with schizophrenia that was being successfully controlled by medication, went out on a day pass, but only made it as far as the mall across the road. He scored some marijuana and smoked it on the spot. He came back to the hospital, with much worse psychosis. “In the morning, he was fine, in the afternoon, he was a lot worse… it persisted for days,” Courtney said during a speech entitled, “Pot and the Developing Brain: The Link Between Cannabis Use and Schizophrenia,” during a presentation to the Lanark County and Town of Smiths Falls municipal drug strategy committee

network day at the Beckwith Township council chambers in Blacks Corners on Friday, Feb. 28. He did hasten to add that “most adolescents who smoke cannabis do not develop schizophrenia,” and that 60 per cent of teenagers smoke up at least once during their teen years. Another cautionary tale he witnessed first-hand saw a normal, high-functioning woman who smoked marijuana once, “and then very rapidly became psychotic. This is not as common. This is a rare occasion.” About 50 per cent of his patients have schizophrenia, and of them, 80 to 90 per cent “are young guys who smoke marijuana, a lot. If they stop marijuana use, they will probably get better.” As for possible societal solutions, he ventured that by “regulating or legalizing marijuana… it may be easier to control. That is worth looking into it, as an argument.” Marijuana aside, he is also seeing a lot more schizophrenia on his ward, where he used to see only a few, something he attributes to higher levels of THC in marijuana. “We all have cannabinoid receptors in our brains,” said Courtney. “Adolescents are vulnerable to impulsive behaviours, acting before thinking about the longterm consequences. This impulsivity makes it more likely to try street drugs.” Marijuana may make a smoker feel mellow but for someone with existing mental health problems, “they are much less likely to respond to their treatment

if they are using marijuana and (are) depressed,” he said. While he came armed with anecdotal evidence he had seen for himself, he also had other studies to cite to put numbers to his personal stories. A Swedish study found that there was a six times greater risk of developing schizophrenia with heavy THC (the active ingredient in marijuana) use by the age of 18. Another study in New Zealand found that marijuana use made it three

times more likely that using marijuana by the age of 15 strongly increased the risk of symptoms of schizophrenia by the age of 26. About 23 per cent of schizophrenia sufferers have a cannabis use disorder, versus less than six per cent of the general population. “Adolescence is a time when nerves in the front part of the brain are becoming more efficient,” he explained. “Excess nerves are being pruned to help the ef-

News – Could new reforms at the OPP mean one united police services board (PSB) for all of Lanark County? George Braithwaite, a member of Lanark Highlands’ police services board, and the county association of PSB’s representative to the Ontario Association of Police Services Boards, thinks it is certainly a possibility. “It is at least an open question, if we will even have PSBs going forward,” said Braithwaite. This was during a presentation at the county PSB association’s quarterly meeting at the Tay Valley Township municipal offices in Glen Tay on Wednesday, March 5. With one PSB per detachment, “you can easily imagine why that may become a potential solution to police oversight in Ontario,” though he cautioned “that kind of a project will not come to fruition any time soon.” For Montague Township Reeve Bill Dobson, the former warden of Lanark County, he urged that the county PSB association “have a short discussion and put all of the pros and cons together,” for having a united board across the county. “There may be savings,” Dobson said. “I would like to see a discussion about that,” adding that he understood that not everyone may be in favour of it. One project that will likely come to fruition a lot sooner is billing reform for police costs. “We are now faced with the implementation of a new billing model,” said Braithwaite. “This will be implemented in due course.” The draft billing model would likely see urban areas – like Carleton Place and Perth – pay less for their policing, while

rural areas – like Mississippi Mills, Tay Valley and Lanark Highlands townships – likely paying significantly more. “Some (municipalities) would like to see it (implemented) yesterday, especially those who would see an immediate reduction in costs,” said Braithwaite. “On the other side of the street, (some municipalities) want it drawn out as long as possible. I see that there is very little difference. If you can’t find it (the necessary additional money), you can’t find it, if the transition is one year, or 20 years. Hopefully there will be some assistance,” for municipalities who are looking at a significant hike in policing costs. With OPP staffers looking at more than an eight per cent pay raise this year, Braithwaite charged that “while billing reform has rearranged the deck chairs on the Titanic, it hasn’t dealt with the fundamental costs of policing.” Some of the rising costs he attributed to the arbitration process, which usually results, by his estimation, in a raise of some kind for the police. “(We need) more efficient approaches to policing,” said Braithwaite. “Can we afford perfection? There will have to be some hard decisions going forward.” For Dobson, however, recently returned from the Good Roads conference, he had heard through the grapevine that the draft OPP funding model “will not be that model.” Grant Chaplin, chair of the Mississippi Mills Community Policing Advisory Council (CPAC), noted about police funding that “we have no idea what will happen in 2015,” and that they had reverted from a PSB format to a CPAC format to save $325,000 a year, money that will be banked in reserves “until we find out what happens in 2015,” he said.

ficiency.” While this is happening, there is also a “massive, rapid reorganization of the frontal lobe.” A lot has changed in the world of marijuana since the 1970s when marijuana usage went from a subculture substance used by jazz musicians and beatniks to more mainstream, subversive, use. The concentration of THC in marijuana has increased since then, and smokers are lighting up earlier and for longer than 40 years ago.

Area Relay for Life team make fighting cancer a family affair Community – The Cancer Kicking Cousins, led by team captain Carol Miller Snook, are gearing up for the 2014 Smiths Falls Relay for Life on Friday, June 13, at the Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute. This is the second year for this 16-member Miller family team, whose motto is ‘Kicking Cancer’s Butt’. The team members – aunts, uncles and cousins – raise funds through group activities and personal pledges, and are looking to repeat last year’s success as the top fund raising team in the Smiths Falls event. The team has put together a roster of events that will appeal to all ages. This year, look for

a vendor fair featuring beauty products, baking supplies, storage solutions, cookware, candles, jewellery and more; a Monster Mash dance to scare away cancer, a silent auction and bingo blitz bowling, and a huge outdoor yard sale. The fun kicks off on March 14 with a silent auction at Kemptville Bowling (291 County Road 44) that runs through to March 23, and features Bingo Blitz Bowling on March 21. Events continue into April at the Kemptville Legion (100 Reuben Crescent) with the vendor fair and dance scheduled for April 12. Doors open for the vendor fair at 1 p.m. and the dance, featuring music

by DJ Dave, gets underway at 8 p.m. All funds raised go to the Canadian Cancer Society’s Lanark, Leeds and Grenville community office, in direct support to those in our community. Monies raised fund promising research, provide information and support services for people living with cancer, and advocate for public policies that reduce cancer risk and improve the quality of life for those living with the disease. According to the Canadian Cancer Society’s Canadian Cancer Statistics 2013 publication, approximately 75,000 Canadians will die of cancer this year. It is expected that one in

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

Open Doors offers network of child, youth mental health services DEAR EDITOR: On Feb. 20, the Ottawa Citizen published an article about the patchwork of psychiatric services for kids in hospitals, but failed to consider the extensive network of child and youth mental health services available throughout Ontario from community-based agencies, like Open Doors for Lanark Children and Youth. Of course, there is an important role for hospitals in helping kids with severe mental health problems, but the overwhelming majority of needs are mild or moderate. The services that are offered at the community level by accredited child and youth mental health service providers reach about 150,000 kids every year. In Lanark County, Open Doors served 1100 children and youth, and their families last year. Children and youth accessed a variety of Open Doors’ services including crisis services, counseling, family resource team, early years and intensive case management. By intervening early, community-based agencies like Open Doors often prevent mental health problems from escalating. According to the article, “The study…raised the question of how problems could be addressed before children and youth reached a cri-

sis and had to be admitted to a hospital for psychiatric treatment.” The answer is clear: expand our network of community-based services and make them available to kids and families. Among other advantages, these community based services are far less costly to deliver and can avoid the pressure on expensive hospital based services in future years. One of the exciting changes in recent years at Open Doors include onsite services in every high school in Lanark County, the same day clinic in Almonte, and the expansion of the quick response team in each of our three sites (in Carleton Place, Smiths Falls and Perth). As a result, the professional staff are able to provide a timely, accessible service to Lanark’s children and youth across the county. Open Doors is an accredited community-based child and youth centre; our last accreditation was earned in November 2012 through the Canadian Centre for Accreditation. Robert Laidlaw Chairperson Open Doors for Lanark Children and Youth

COMMENTARY

Stop fraud in its tracks Editorial – It’s all around us and it doesn’t discriminate. Fraud impacts thousands of people each year who lose millions of dollars through the victimization. March is Fraud Prevention Month and we’ve likely all received the emails about being left a large sum of money from a ‘distant’ relative, the King of Nigeria, or received a call that a grandson is being held in jail and needs a certain amount of funds wired in order to release him. There are many forms of fraud out there, but according to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre, Ontario residents were targeted most by mass marketing fraud scams in 2013. In fact, that type of fraud affected 11,076 victims in 2013, causing them to lose $53 million. Fifty-six per cent of all mass marketing fraud occurrences came via the Internet or email, while 19 per cent were through the telephone. Money transfer businesses are the top reported payment method to send funds and alarming is the fact that the number of Canadian identity fraud victims continues to increase. The highest number of victims are from the 50 to 70 age bracket. The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) noted that being aware of certain scams is one of the best ways to stop fraud in its tracks. Deputy Commissioner Scott Tod with OPP Investigations and Organized Crime notes that “perpetrators of fraud prey upon many segments of our population, especially the most vulnerable. The impact of their fraudulent activities is staggering.” Tod says the funds are used to fuel illegal activities, which further victimizes people. There are several tips on how to stop fraud, but the best way is to adhere to the motto “if it sounds too good to be true, it likely is.” If you see hear of a scam in your commnity, contact your local police service or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-2228477 or visit www.tipsubmit.com.

In spite of Depression there were still many treats to be had Lifestyle – Goodness knows we were reminded often enough that there was a Depression on! Just ask for something as simple as a pair of white stockings, or a new hair ribbon, and you were told once again of the scarcity of money. “There is no money for such frivolities!” And how often were we told “Eat every last scrap on your plate...if you don’t you were taking it right out of the mouth of a starving Armenian!” I had no idea who the starving Armenians were, but I was pretty sure that they lived in Arnprior! Yes, wasting food was a sin, and if it cost money, and wasn’t absolutely necessary, your chances of getting what you asked for were pretty slim indeed. And yet, we had what I called treats aplenty back in the ‘30s. When the nights were bitterly cold, with the wind howling outside rattling the windows, Mother could always come up with something that took the chill out of the old log house. Often it was a popper full of corn,

laced with a jug of melted butter. Sometimes it was a treat that my sister Audrey said took the place of a good dose of Epsom salts, but to me it was delicious. And if I had stopped to think about it, it wasn’t something handed out willy-nilly...in fact, we only got it in the dead of winter. It was a big glass of molasses, water and a heaping tablespoon of baking soda. It fizzed up, often pouring out of the glass, and I considered it a real treat, which pleased Mother. It was never handed out on a school night, of course, because the result of this special treat was many trips to the outside privy! My sister Audrey called it “our winter clean out,” but to me, it was a treat. And then there was oven toast. How I loved oven toast. It didn’t come out looking like the toast made on top of the stove, over hot coals. Every one of us considered it a special treat, and when Mother asked, “who would like a piece of oven toast?”, we Vice President & Regional Publisher Mike Mount mmount@perfprint.ca 613-283-3182, ext. 104

all squealed with anticipation. Only Mother could turn out oven toast the way I like it. She would lay out slices of thick homemade bread on the bake table, lavish butter on both sides, put a wire rack over a couple deep pie plates, put the bread in rows on the rack, plug in another block of wood into the stove, and put everything into the hot oven. The butter-saturated bread would crisp to a light golden brown, and I thought it was the most delicious treat Mother ever invented, breaking the slices into pieces and gobbling it up with butter running down my fingers.

The trick, Mother said, was not to take it out of the oven until it was crisp, but not letting it brown. She knew just how to manage it all in right order, and there wasn’t, in my mind, a more delicious before-bed treat than oven toast. There always seemed to be lots of homemade bread at our house. Mother baked once or twice a week, and we five kids were forever fighting over who got the crusts at either end of the loaf. It got to the point where Mother had us draw straws for this treat. And a special bedtime treat was a thick slice of homemade bread, buttered of course, and then spread with a layer of brown sugar with cinnamon sprinkled on top. I have no idea why she did it, but Mother always cut the slices into little squares before piling them on a dinner plate in the middle of the table, moving the sugar bowl and spoon holder to make room. The whole pile would vanish in minutes, and we would head off to bed with ADVERTISING SALES: ADVERTISING SALES CO-ORDINATOR Andrea McMurtry SALES: Cheryl Johnston, Sharon Sinfield, Kathy Perreault, Kevin Hoover, Jamie Rae-Gomes Email: emcsales@perfprint.ca Fax: 613-283-9988 THE DEADLINE FOR DISPLAY ADVERTISING IS MONDAY 4:30 PM

sugar-filled stomachs and a feeling of complete joy. My sister Audrey became an expert at making fudge. No one could talk to her when she was at the job. I would sit at the table and listen to her slap the big wood spoon around the pot which was inside another pot of cold water. It had to be just the right consistency before she poured it into a buttered pie plate and left to chill. When she wasn’t looking, I would go out to the summer kitchen where the pie plate of fudge was sitting, and press my finger into it, just to make sure it was hardening. If Audrey noticed the finger marks, she said nothing. That night, when we were sitting around the old pine table, each engrossed in his own activity, Audrey would cut the fudge into little squares, and dole them out like they were chunks of gold.

Additionally, the duration of priority access for all medically released CAF personnel would be extended from two years to five years. All proposed changes are expected to come into force in 2014-15.

Mother of course, made sure the snow brought in from outside was nowhere near the barnyard, and well away from the house. Heaven forbid that a stray animal had put a foot within a county mile of the snow my brother brought in in the big roast pan! And the hot syrup would be drizzled on the fresh snow, let harden, and then we lifted it off with buttered fingers and sucked the taffy like we would a sucker bought at Briscoe’s General Store. I shared a special treat with my beloved sister Audrey, that no one else in the family seemed to relish.

table, Audrey would get out the breadboard, and the little tack-hammer, and she’d break open the pits freeing the pulp from inside. We would wait until all the pits had been smashed open, and then Audrey and I would move to the creton couch near the Findlay Oval, and between us, we’d devour the fruit nappy of pits as if they were store-bought candy! Even my hateful brother Emerson’s prediction that eventually the pits would sprout and grow a plum shrub in my stomach didn’t take away my love of plum pits! Those long ago days of the Depression years were years of the most simple pleasures, and treats free of an outlay of money, and long before cholesterol was part of our vocabulary.

Is black the new green? Check out biochar at March 22 spaghetti dinner Community – “Biochar” is charcoal produced from waste wood and plant materials. It is almost pure carbon and when it is mixed into soil, it is “nearly as inert as gold.” That’s a quote from James Lovelock, the eminent British scientist who originated the Gaia Theory to explain the interconnectedness between our planet’s climate and life. Lovelock sees the burying of biochar as a promising mechanism for combating climate change. Others are beginning to agree with Lovelock. They have discovered that biochar, as a soil additive, offers numerous potential benefits, such as increasing the capacity of the soil to hold water and nutrients and enhancing crop yields – as well as providing clean disposal of wastes from agriculture and forest industries and locking carbon into the soil for the long term (from decades to centuries). Modern methods of making biochar involve a heating process, called pyrolysis. By controlling the temperature of the process, a portion of the energy in the waste materials can be turned into a liquid or a gaseous fuel. Thus, biochar can yield yet another benefit: providing the energy for its own processing, plus the option of additional renewable-energy fuel that can be stored for later use. Biochar processing

would create local employment and might even pay for itself with the synthetic fuel produced. It is something that can be done on a small scale and with only modest financial resources. Thus, it is a realistic climate action that could be undertaken, here in eastern Ontario, by local townships, sawmills, or even by individual farms. The excitement of biochar is in the fact that it provides opportunities for anyone and everyone to get involved in a positive environmental action – in our own gardens, on our own farms, and in our own communities. It means we each have another way to contribute, making a genuine difference to our environment, now. And we don’t have to wait for governments to agree on what we should be doing to address climate change. A biochar program would not be much different from the earlier recycling (blue box) programs. Only in this case, people could participate at both ends of the process: taking farm or yard waste to the nearest biochar processing plant; and using the biochar output on their farms or in their vegetable gardens and flower beds. Here in eastern Ontario, we are predominately a forest and farming economy and thus we have lots of “waste” brush and farming residues to deal with. Turning this stuff into biochar and renewable energy is a lot more environmen-

tally responsible than just burning it in the open air – in fields or backyards. Indeed, open-air burning represents a total loss of a valuable natural resource – a resource that can, at the least, be composted. Why waste resources

and pollute the atmosphere at the same time? Biochar processing offers a win-win-win alternative. March 22 spaghetti dinner Given the exciting potential of biochar, the local Green Party of Ontario Constituency Associa-

tion (Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox & Addington) is offering an opportunity for everyone to learn more about it. Please join us for a spaghetti dinner and information evening on Saturday, March 22 at Maberly Hall (172 Maberly

Elphin Road). Doors open at 6 p.m. Our speaker will be Lloyd Helferty, president of Biochar Ontario and a member of the advisory committee of the International Biochar Initiative.

Algonquin College Perth Campus launches fall continuing education program Community – Whether it’s learning how to turn on a computer or deciphering the wines of France, community members can now register for the Algonquin College Perth Campus continuing education fall courses. With more than 30 courses on the program roster, individuals can hand pick which area of interest they’d

like to explore. “We’ve really extended our list offering and considered every member of our community,” says Algonquin College Perth Campus Dean Shelley Carter-Rose. “We have a typing course for teens, photography courses for shutterbugs, a woodworking course for the craftspeople and

American eel monitoring project completed for Ottawa, Mississippi Rivers News – Sustainable Resources Forestry, Fisheries and Environmental Services Inc. have recently completed a one-year American eel monitoring project. The project began in June and continued until midOctober of 2013 with focus on the Ottawa and Mississippi Rivers. The main objective of the project was to determine the presence, abundance and migration timing of American eels. The project also provided fisheries data on lake sturgeon. American eels are part of a distinct population of fish maturing in freshwater. Upon maturity, they return to an oceanic environment to spawn in the Sargasso Sea. This ‘catadromus’ biological makeup makes them vulnerable to a number of factors that determine their single population. Predation, pollution, parasites and viral infections, habitat loss, climate change and man-made physical barriers such as dams, according to the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources (OMNR), are some of the impediments that may have influenced their rapid decline. The American eel was once a common ecosystem

everything in between.” New classes this semester include Spanish classes, a chair repair course, a one-day meditation workshop, a stress reduction course and more. Since the Perth Campus relaunched its continuing education program last fall, the response has been overwhelming. “We have welcomed hundreds of community members to our campus this past year and that’s exactly what we wanted to do,” explains Carter-Rose. “We want to open our doors and allow the community to use our new facility and learn at the same time.”

credit course on offer While the programs on offer through the continuing education program has been non-credit, general interest courses, the college has expanded its reach to accommodate Lanark County residents. This October, the college will offer a credit course in human resources management. This is an eight-week credit course offered through the Woodroffe campus and can be used toward several programs including business administration, human resources management, applied management, business marketing management and more. Human resources management Students will be introduced to

component of Ontario’s freshwaters. Unfortunately, populations have plunged so drastically that the Ontario government cancelled commercial and angling harvests in 2004. By May of 2012, the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada, upgraded the American eel to a “Threatened Species Status.” Eels remain listed as “endangered” in Ontario. The information collected from this survey provides important data for fisheries managers, industries and other government agencies to collaborate and work together to find solutions to safe upstream and downstream eel passage. Assistance from anglers, local residents or other recreational users can continue to support the project as well as by reporting any eel sightings to project leader Jane McCann (613-2648103) or Kerry Coleman of the Lanark Stewardship Council (lead partner), at 613-267-4200 ext. 3403. Assistance for the project was provided by the OMNR’s Species at Risk Stewardship Fund. Sustainable Resources Forestry, Fisheries and Environmental Services Inc. is located in Perth.

THERE ARE SOME ANSWERS YOU WON’T FIND ON THE INTERNET.

REAL ESTATE

Buying or selling a home is far more than a real estate transaction. It’s often at the heart of a major life transition. There are countless questions to be asked and not all of them can be answered by looking on the internet. That’s where a REALTORÂŽ can help – they have their ďŹ ngers on the pulse of the market. They know the questions to ask, the areas to probe, and what to look for so that you get a complete picture of the property and community you’re considering. With a REALTORÂŽ at your side, you can have all the facts you need to make an informed decision.

Global warming? Feels more like a new Ice Age Lifestyle – I speak to a lot of people on my daily rounds and lately there has been one common denominator. Something everyone is talking about every day. The weather! We switched to Daylight Saving Time Sunday and with more daylight there is renewed optimism spring will eventually arrive. The March Equinox, which marks the official arrival of spring in the northern hemisphere, is on March 20, one week from today. Another hopeful sign! It is Monday morning of March break week and there’s more snow on the ground. Temperatures were expected to drop this week, not increase. Last week the daily highs in this region were in the -12 Celsius (C) range and with the wind, which has been an ongoing factor this winter, it felt more like -20C or -25C. Extremely cold for

the beginning of March! Just to get last week off to a great start, Environment Canada issued its spring weather forecast. For eastern Ontario the operative word is “cool” not cold. But after the winter we’ve been through it was depressing news. It is rare – try unheard of – for me to write two columns in one winter about the weather. But I like to be current! Obviously I am having a little fun too, given the headline on this article. I do plan to give you plenty of food for thought as this piece unfolds though. The reality is record daily low temperatures have been happening for weeks in communities across Canada. Officially this is the coldest winter in two decades in Ottawa and eastern Ontario. We have also had a higher than normal amount of precipitation, much of which has come in the form of snow.

Reflections BY JEFF MAGUIRE

Not a record amount as I pointed out in my previous winter weather column in February. But enough of the white stuff to satisfy any winter outdoor enthusiast. There is an upside to a “traditional winter.” Locally ski resorts have had a banner year and I’m pleased for the operators. The Rideau Canal Skateway in the nearby nation’s capital, the world’s biggest skating rink, has enjoyed its longest season in years. The canal and

Winterlude go hand in glove and this year’s Ottawa winter festival was a major success. So too were countless other seasonal carnivals and outdoor festivals across the region which are dependent on cold temperatures. For most people this winter has gone on too long. And with a cooler than normal spring forecast most of us are fed up. As for the ongoing debate about socalled “global warming”, I think it is fair to say that after this winter untold millions across North American will turn thumbs down on that idea. The term “weather change” is more palatable I think. The weather is always subject to change and documentation shows that weather patterns have zigged and zagged throughout recorded history. Of course those who are adamant about the impact of global warming will find some way to tie this winter to the trend they’ve been warning us about for years. For some people global warming has become a business and they aren’t about to let something like an incredibly cold winter stand as an obstacle. Polar Vortex Still, after this winter it seems unlikely the enrolment of global warming proponents will increase dramatically. Not in North America! On this continent we are now confronted with an entirely different catch phrase, “Polar Vortex.” Meteorologists explain this phenomenon occurs when the jet stream extends farther south than usual, causing bitterly cold Arctic air to flood across the continent. This winter the Polar Vortex has become the scourge of the American east coast and the United States Midwest. Frigid air has funneled southeast to blanket normally temperate (even hot) states including Tennessee, the Carolinas, Georgia and parts of Florida. In all those areas the mercury has plunged well below freezing at times this winter. Meanwhile the US northeast has been pounded by one severe snowstorm after another. Last week the American capital, Washington DC, received another 15 centimetres of snow. It has been so cold in normally mild Washington that there are fears the cherry blossoms, which should be ready to spring forth at this time of year, will be negatively affected. We have several friends and acquaintances among “the Snowbirds”,

Canadians who winter in the usually sunny, warm southern US. All of them have complained of cold, wet, miserable conditions this winter. The Great Lakes, the largest group of freshwater lakes in the world, were nearly 90 per cent frozen over last week. That is exceedingly rare according to what I have read and heard. On Lake Michigan people have been able to walk into and explore lakeside caves due to thick ice. Normally those caves are accessible only by canoe or kayak during the spring and summer. There is a big positive associated with the Great Lakes and this winter though. The massive snow load is expected to raise water levels in the lakes when it melts. Lake levels have been falling steadily in recent times. This winter should put the brakes on that trend. I was in Nashville and Franklin, Tennessee in early January. When we were there it was a beautiful 62 Fahrenheit (F), which converts to 16C, on two days. But earlier that week the thermometer fell to 1F (-17.2 C). On the Saturday morning we were sitting on our friends’ front porch enjoying the balmy conditions when a neighbour lady arrived. She told my friend Doug Sharp “you have to come and see our house. We’ve had a flood.” I decided to accompany Doug. The mess was truly unbelievable! A water line in an upstairs bedroom had ruptured and for nearly seven hours, while everyone was at work or school, water cascaded through the house. It’s an expensive property and the repair bill will be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. The family of four was forced to live elsewhere while repairs were made. Frozen pipe No mystery how it happened though. The pipe froze and cracked in the freezing weather. In the American south they don’t insulate homes like we do here. I was able to examine the offending water line through a hole that had been cut in the wall to expose the trouble spot. There was no insulation whatsoever in the wall cavity. Doug, who is in the property development business, said that is the norm in Middle Tennessee. They usually get away with it throughout the lifetime of a house. Not this winter!

History comes alive in Studio Theatre’s Lion in Winter production By JOAN SONNENBURG

Arts – Many of us hated history class in school – learning the names of kings, important dates etc. What a bore. If you were one of those, then Studio Theatre’s upcoming production of The Lion in Winter by James Goldman is for you. You will come away with a totally different outlook on English history in the 12th century. Henry II was king, and undisputedly the most powerful ruler in the then fragmented Europe. But Henry was aging, (a lion in winter) and the question was fermenting: who would succeed him? In the 12th century, it was not a given that the eldest son should take over. Henry had three sons: John, who later became King John of the Magna Carta; Richard, known as the “Lionheart� because of his prowess in battle; and Geoffrey who seemed overshadowed by his two brothers. Henry favoured John, Eleanor his queen liked Richard, but nobody seemed interested in poor Geoffrey. Bring into this melee of dysfunctional characters, Philip II, son of Queen Eleanor’s former husband and king of France, and Alais, Philip’s half-sister, purportedly betrothed to Richard, but having an affair with Henry on the side. Funny, but they never teach us things like that in history class.

Studio Theatre in Perth is preparing for its upcoming production of James Goldman’s The Lion in Winter. It opens April 3 at 8 p.m. and runs April 4, 5, 11, 12, at 8 p.m. and April 6 and 13 at 2 p.m. Above, David Bird (Henry II), left, and Janet Rice (Eleanor) rehearse a scene. However, the plot of the play, the interaction of its characters as they come together to celebrate Christmas in Henry’s court in Anjou, is entirely of the playwright’s creation, a concoction of passion, hate, love, and jealously, intermingled with black humour. This is a play that demands strong direction and topnotch

acting. Kathy Reid, who brought Steel Magnolia’s to the stage last year, takes on this highly challenging task. Henry has been played professionally by such notables as Robert Preston (stage), Peter O’Toole (film) and Patrick Stewart (TV). In this production, it will be performed by the wellknown and highly accomplished

David Bird. Eleanor, an equally challenging role that has previously been played on stage by Julie Harris, and Stockard Channing, in film by Katherine Hepburn, and on TV by Glenn Close. In this production, she is superbly portrayed by Janet Rice who many will remember for her delightful

character part in Month of Sundays. Lucas Tennant is John, the spoiled brat of the family, Scott Duncan is Richard the warrior driven by ambition, and Mark Daly is Geoffrey who is quite capable of hatching a few schemes of his own. Mary Ann Majoury is the lovely but not-so innocent Alais and

Julian Rice-Laprisse is her halfbrother Philip II, current king of France. Alais is supposedly engaged to Richard, but is having an affair with Henry. Richard is far more interested in Philip than in Alais, but carries on the charade of their engagement for political purposes. Now did your history teachers ever mention any of this in their lessons? Probably not. Perhaps that’s because, while the people, the time and the setting are accurate historically, the story itself belongs to the playwright who weaves a witty, twisted digression through the dry facts of history. Nevertheless, it is a play that brings history alive in a most entertaining way, This is a must-see play, filled with colour, drama and humour. It opens April 3 at 8 p.m. and runs April 4, 5, 11, 12, at 8 p.m. and April 6 and 13 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $20 in advance, available at The Book Nook 613-267-2350, and $22 at the door or at Tickets Please in Perth. Phone or credit card orders can be made through Tickets Please, 613-483-6434 or order online at www.ticketsplease.ca. There is a student rate of $10 (with ID) at the door.

Lifestyle – Although it may seem like the premade or prepackaged ready for the table food is cheaper, making meals at home can stretch the food dollar. Registered Dietitian Meena Tipper of the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit feels that purchasing less expensive cuts of meat that can be marinated are just as tasty as the prime cuts. Adding a basic marinade of vinegar, lemon juice, canola oil to pork shoulder, lamb shanks, outside or inside eye of round, blade or shank steak, beef brisket, chicken pieces (legs, thighs) or whole chicken adds flavour while it tenderizes. Before putting chicken in marinade, remove skin to cut down on fats. A basic meat marinade from Eat Right Ontario is comprised of the following which makes three quarters of a cup: ¼ cup or 60 mL low sodium soy sauce ¼ cup or 60 mL vegetable oil ½ tsp or 2 mL g a r l i c power or two minced garlic cloves ¼ cup or 60 mL lemon juice or orange juice Mix all the ingredients in a bowl with a whisk. In a sealed container put meat and marinade. Refrigerate for at least four hours (or overnight). Remove meat to cook and discard marinade. Do not reuse marinade. Another great tip is to have one meatless meal a week. Think protein-rich choices such as lentils, black beans or chickpeas. Add chickpeas or lentils to pasta and vegetable salads. Some meat alternatives are curried chickpeas and rice, a vegetable cheese omelet, vegetarian bean chili, egg salad sandwiches, tofu stir-fry or a lentil casserole or soup. “When you are using things like black beans in tacos or kidney beans or chickpeas in a chili, you are incorporating these foods into foods that you already like,” suggested Tipper. “Chickpeas will take on the flavour of what you are cooking it with. If you put lentils, chickpeas or beans into chili or a spaghetti sauce, it’s something that you are already adding spices to.” Tipper suggests making your own spaghetti sauce as ready-made can be costly and are high in fat,

sugar or salt. Spaghetti sauce is easy to make with lightly sautéed onions and garlic in a little olive or vegetable oil. Add low sodium canned tomatoes and simmer. Season with pepper and herbs (basil or oregano) and to this add beans, chickpeas or ground beef. Plus vegetables, mushrooms, zucchini, chopped spinach, carrots or green peppers can be added. What a simple meal. Freeze any extra leftover sauce for another meal. Root vegetables less expensive “If you have a large family, usually you can get a large bag of potatoes for not a lot of money,” said Tipper. “If you buy the three pound of carrots versus the baby carrots, you get a lot more carrots. Rutabagas tend to be less than a dollar a pound.” Vegetables can be roasted, mashed, baked and get a lot of nutrients for less money. Use as a side dish or eat as leftovers. “When you are looking at frozen vegetables, they are just as nutritious as fresh,” indicated Tipper. “Make sure there are not any added sauces which can be high in saturated fat and sodium.” Tips for shopping: • Know what your family likes to eat, • Plan meals around foods on sale, • Make a weekly menu, • Use coupons, • Shop at grocery stores or supermarkets for cheaper prices and variety, • Do not shop when hungry, • Buy in season, or if out of season purchase frozen or canned, • Check expiry dates, • While shopping look at higher and lower shelves for same item, • Consider store brands, • Check reduced section, • Compare the unit price for similar items, • Know your food prices and take along a calculator, • Enjoy grains and pasta more often, but not prepackaged in store bought sauces. Rice, pasta, barley and couscous are inexpensive and can be added to many recipes.

played itself out across the state due to the extremely rare, frigid conditions. If you read and watch the news you saw the results of the ice and snow storms which slammed into big American cities such as Atlanta, Georgia and Charlotte, North Carolina. There was total chaos on the roads because that kind of weather is such a rarity there. It isn’t rare on the Canadian Prairies. But this year’s weather has set low temperature records across western Canada. Our daughter is living in Regina where in recent times the mercury has struggled to get above -30C during the day. With the wind chill factored in it felt like the mid -40s for days on end. Winnipeg was even worse and with low snowfall amounts (snow helps insulate the ground) water mains and individual water services were freezing by the hundreds every day. That situation is unparalleled! My youngest sister and her family live in Edmonton and I have a nephew who resides in Swift Current, Saskatchewan. They have never experienced anything like the cold this winter. I was speaking to my daughter Heather one day recently when, with the wind, the temperature in Saskatchewan’s capital felt like -49C. She said without an in-car heater the seats in people’s vehicles are as hard as concrete blocks. Car hoods stood open around their neighbourhood as engine blocks and gas lines had frozen. Only partly tongue in cheek I suggested she extend an invitation to Al Gore to pack the sunscreen and the margarita mix and head for “balmy” Regina. “That would give him some insight into the Polar Vortex versus global warming,” I laughed. “I think we’re on the verge of a new Ice Age.”

“It isn’t funny Dad,” my clearly annoyed daughter replied. “You should try living out here. I wish I was back in Ontario.” “No you don’t,” I answered. “With the wind it feels like -29 here today!”

Misery loves company and this has been a truly miserable winter. Now the experts say it could be colder than normal right through May. Who knows, maybe there will still be some snow on the ground

in our subdivision on Victoria Day. Okay, you’re right. Perhaps I’m being overly pessimistic? If you have a comment or question for Jeff Maguire he can be reached by email at: jeffrey.maguire@rogers.com.

Car owner plagued with emission light staying on

TFSA

Can you offer any further steps I can suggest to the mechanic?� Thanks K From the info you’ve supplied it seems your techs have been working on the BMW’s secondary air system (an air injection system designed to improve engine performance and emissions). The 645 of your era had more than its share of problems with this system, usually due to leaks in any number of the hoses, lines, fittings and connectors that are routed in the engine bay and under the engine’s intake manifold. However, the code 2060 refers to an electrical fault in the air injection system, not necessarily a hose or connection problem. An electrical fault almost always sparks a check engine light that comes on right after start up as the vehicle’s various control computers immediately run a series of self-tests on various components and systems. For every fault code there is a diagnostic chart that leads the tech through a series of tests and inspections to narrow the cause. For code 2060 it would most likely involve testing certain wires and connectors for continuity and power and to test any

I doubt if changing your fuel type will help with this problem (although these BMW’s like their premium fuel). “Hello, I look for and enjoy your article every week.

Thank you for all your help and information. Now, I have a question that I can’t seem to find the answer to. I have a 2003 Toyota Echo, automatic with about 93,000+ kilometres on it. Do I have a timing belt/ chain on it? Does it have to be changed about now – around the 100,000 kilometre mark? I’m told that when this is done that the serpentine belt(s) and the water pump should be changed as well. I have looked in the books that came with the car and can’t find an answer to my questions. Somewhere, I did find that these belts should be changed, but they mentioned other 4 cylinder cars and not the Echo. Of course, I can’t find that again.

Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hi Brian Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been plagued with this yellow emission light staying on (my 2004 BMW 645ci) for several months now and have so far thrown almost $500 to solve the problem with no resolution. The sequence is â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as soon as I start the engine the large yellow engine light comes on, then in about 10 seconds it goes off and the smaller yellow engine light comes on in the upper section of the dash and stays on as long as the engine is running. Both mechanics have advised that all the components of the secondary emission operation are okay and have cleaned the hoses to preclude a possible clogging of the hoses. They have also cleared both air injection pipes at the rear of the cylinder head. In addition they told me the trouble code that kept coming back was 2060. They also checked secondary air pump operation, the air injection hoses, connectors, and valves and they reset the computer. The yellow increased emission light popped right back on after I left the shop. I plan on getting some quality gas additive for the next time I have to fill my tank and see if that helps clean the engine a bit.

Lanark County Interval House thinks spring with several upcoming events Community – The following is a listing of events and news highlighting the activities at Lanark County Interval House (LCIH).

fundraising appeals. As always, we express our most sincere gratitude to the community who support our fundraising mail outs and various fundraising events we hold throughout the year. This support directly affects the number of women and children we are able to help escape from the abuse at the hands of their partners. And we have helped thousands in the past 35 years. Our greatest hope is that in the next 35 years, we will no longer be needed.

The Weecycle Children’s Consignment Sale for LCIH is fast approaching, set for March 22 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Brunton Hall in Blacks Corners. The sale will include a wide range of children’s clothing and accessories at mom to mom sale prices and will also feature eight local vendors. We look forward to seeing them showcase their items at the sale. We are currently looking for more consignors. Sell your gently used children’s clothing and accessories for profit and to help support LCIH. The deadline for consignors is Saturday, March 15. Volunteers are also needed to help set up the sale. Contact Lisa at lc1985@hotmail.ca for more information. Spring bag sale, changeover at As Good As New Thrift Store The As Good As New Thrift Store is clearing out their entire store and hold changeover bag sales just twice a year. The next one is coming up Saturday, March 22 to Saturday, March 29 to benefit LCIH. Fill a bag for only $4, which includes all women’s men’s, teen and children’s clothing and everything else in the store as well. The store is located at 33 Bridge Street in Carleton Place. Second annual BeDazzled online jewelry auction April 12 to 27 Do you have any pieces of jewelry that you would like to donate to the upcoming BeDazzled Online Jewelry Auction – a fundraiser in April for LCIH? We will be auctioning jewelry sets, necklaces, earrings, bracelets, broaches and watches. If you have any jewelry to donate, please email suecronk@rogers.com or call 613-2575159 and one of the LCIH volunteers will pick up the items. Then check out the auction between April 12 and 27 as we’ll feature a range of beautiful jewelry with delivery in time for Mother’s Day! Stay tuned for more details as we get closer to the launch date. LCIH 35th anniversary While LCIH officially opened in May of 1979, the shelter was already occupied in April by women in need of emergency services. We’ve had a long history of supporting women throughout the county and continue to expand muchneeded services over the years. In 2002, we opened our first outreach office in order to better serve the many women who were not residing at the shelter but who were also experiencing violence at the hands of their partners. At this time, we also established two critical programs, a transition support program that helps women successfully re-establish themselves and their families in safe housing, find employment or further education, support through the court program, and more. The other new program was the child and youth program. Today, we offer two children’s programs; one in the shelter and one from our outreach offices. These programs work directly with children who have either witnessed violence in their homes or have experienced it directly. The children benefit from direct counselling to help them process their experiences and to eventually feel safe again. The Sexual Assault Centre, which was sponsored by LCIH, ceased operating due to a lack of funding in 2004. However, although the centre closed, the need for these services still existed. To help alleviate this need, LCIH established a sexual assault program within the agency. Our second outreach office, this one located in Perth, opened in 2006. This was so we could better serve the many women in Perth and Lanark Highlands. In 2008, the Ministry of Community and Social Services offered one-time capital funding towards extensive renovations for the shelter. Our

Wrapped in Courage Wrapped in Courage is a fantastic collection of photos in support of working locally to end violence against women. LCIH took our own approach to the suggested provincial Wrapped in Courage campaign and asked people from across the county to work together locally to end violence against women right here. Wrapped in Courage demonstrated the respect and recognition of women’s courage to flee vio-

lence. Many thanks to everyone who participated and for those who weren’t able to participate this year, we look forward to seeing your photos next year! LCIH is selling copies of the poster for the price of printing at $15 each. If you would like to purchase a copy of the poster, please contact Heather Whiting by phone at 613-257-3469 ext. 27 or by email at heather@lcih.com. LCIH provides extensive support for children, youth and women fleeing family violence through its 24-hour crisis line, shelter and outreach programs. Services are free and confidential and women do not need to be a resident of the shelter to access them. If you need help, contact the crisis line at 1-800-267-7946, 613-257-5960 or 613-2571952.

Lanark County Interval House is currently selling copies of this poster, above, which was created for the provincial Wrapped in Courage campaign to end violence against women. administrative offices were established in the century-house and a new, seven-bedroom accessible shelter was built on our existing property. This renovation made the shelter much more functional for communal living for multiple families. It helps to give the message to the women and children who come to stay at the shelter that they are valued and cared for at a time of great upheaval in their lives. Through two Status of Women Canada grants, LCIH was able to focus on youth between 2009 and 2012. Our Where is the Love? project allowed our staff to reach teens right in their own high schools and youth groups, and the Truth for Rural youth project established an online presence that allows teens to interact and post about topics that are important to them around relationships. Although funding for these projects has ended, we feel it’s critical to engage with teens and look for innovative ways and funding opportunities as often as we can. The Truth for Rural Youth (TRY) website is still active at http://trylanarkcounty.com and LCIH, with the help of several partners and generous fundraisers, will be hosting a Where is the Love? conference on May 14 in Perth. For more information on the conference, email brianne@lcih.com. In 2013, LCIH was chosen to receive limited funding to establish a court support program for Lanark County. At just eight hours per week, our court support worker works mostly with women trying to navigate the family court system. After she leaves is often by far, the most dangerous time for an abused woman. Not only has she left the control of an abusive partner, feels unsafe and unsure of how to manage all the changes in her and her children’s lives, but she now has to face the abuser in the courts to establish separation agreements, child custody and visitation. The family court support worker is often the only person dedicated to supporting this woman and we feel it is among our most important programs to directly help women successfully move on after abuse. In the past few years, LCIH has continued to provide services to the increasing number of women and children reaching out to us for support. A combination of the economic downturn and rising cost of living has created more stress in our family homes and is resulting in increasing incidents of violence. Our operational funding has still not increased in several years and will most likely not increase in several more and as a result we have pared down as many administrative functions as possible and have ramped up

How his 1940 Chevy earned respect plowing through the mud

had gone into a ditch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I explained my situation to Dad, he just laughed and said: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;No problem. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll buy a rope and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll tow you to Prince George.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Note: these days that would be illegal). The ride was hair-raising, especially when we got up to 60 miles an hour. We arrived in one piece and my brother was there to greet us as it was spring break-up and, according to him, only his 1956 Pontiac wagon could make it through the huge mud holes between the highway and the camp 4 km into the bush. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All three of us jumped into the Pontiac and we proceeded into the first mud hole, where the heavy car sank up to the floorboards. We then slogged through the mud to Dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Olds, which sank even deeper than the Pontiac. The three of us then eyed the Chevy with its

amazing ground clearance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We jumped in. My brother hit the starter (located on the floor), the little six roared to life and with only first and second left in the gearbox, the old lady plowed through all the mud holes and rolled proudly into camp 4 km down the road, earning the respect of us three and all who witnessed our arrival in camp that day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I eventually sold the car, but my first old Chevy still holds a lot of fond memories.â&#x20AC;? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m always looking for more stories. Email billtsherk@sympatico.ca or write Bill Sherk, 25 John St., P.O. Box 255, Leamington, Ont. N8H 3W2. Everyone whose story is published in this column will receive a free autographed copy of my latest book: â&#x20AC;&#x153;OLD CAR DETECTIVE FAVOURITE STORIES, 1925 to 1965.â&#x20AC;?

Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A hilarious story comes our way from Ted Okkerse, Publisher of the Pipestone Flyer in Wetaskawin, Alberta: â&#x20AC;&#x153;In 1961, at age 17, I bought a 1940 Chevy 4-door sedan for $40. When Dad and I got it home we parked it behind the garage, where I worked on it as time and money permitted (I was making 64 cents an hour). I loved that old car and spent many weekends sitting in it and listening to music on the radio. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One day before turning 18, I got my licence and left Edmonton in the old girl for Prince George, B.C., 650 miles away, to find work. My father had decided to make the same trip in his 1957 Oldsmobile Super 88 2-door coupe as I had a brother living at a lumber camp about 40 miles north of Prince George. I think Dad was just keeping an eye on me. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Third gear went out of my car less than 50 miles outside Edmonton. I had forgotten to check the oil in the tranny. As I looked for a place to turn around, I noticed a green car parked up ahead. It was my dad! He had stopped to help someone who

Smiths Falls Horticultural Society thinks spring with presentations, workshops

Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; On Sunday, March 9, the Best Western Hotel in Perth hosted their first bridal show event. Left, Kimberly Dunn, singer and pianist, kept the mood classy with live music throughout the event.

By CHARLES McLENAGHAN

Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The next meeting of the Smiths Falls Horticultural Society is at the Smiths Falls Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 95 at 7:15 p.m. on Tuesday, March 18. The February meeting was well attended and many were delighted to choose their own African violet as a door prize. Emilie Henkelman generously donated the beautiful plants after her delightful talk on propagating and caring for these plants. This month our own Hope Bell will give a presentation on Fairy Gardens. A visit to the Internet shows what a Fairy Garden consists of, some of which are certainly enchanting, as you would expect. This presentation will open our eyes to yet another facet of gardening so donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss it. The winner of our photo contest for February was Anneke Wilson. The theme for March is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Winterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Endâ&#x20AC;?. You will really have to use you imagination this year. We hope to have more participation from everyone. The topics are easy and the rules are simple as posted on the table by Jane so please take time to get your photos ready. The topic for April is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Springâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Beginningâ&#x20AC;?. The 2014 yearbook is ready for distribution. Thank you Hope Bell once again for a job well done. Be sure to get your copy upon arrival. Please check out all the events as listed as well as the corporate members and sponsors facing the inside back cover. We are grateful for the support we get each year and ask you to support these businesses in return. Upcoming workshops Some of the plans being discussed to date at the executive meetings include various workshops and visits to local sites. One of the first is on May 3, weather permitting, to the Willoughby Farm on the Jasper Road where will be guided through a new greenhouse.

Smiths Falls Horticultural Society There will be an opportunity to purchase plants on this visit. A workshop in making your own Hypertufa container at Rockwall gardens is taking place on June 21. There is a sign-up sheet available. There will be more events to come so stay tuned! Coming up in April you should prepare your houseplants for our first â&#x20AC;&#x153;fun flower showâ&#x20AC;?. Basically you just have to make sure the plant is cleaned up by removing any dead leaves from on top of the soil and grooming the plant a bit. Members will vote on their favourite plant. There are no points awarded towards the annual flower show competition. Last year we saw some very unusual plants so we encourage everyone to bring in their prize specimens for all to enjoy. Annual plant sale May 24 Our annual plant sale takes place on Saturday, May 24 this year. If you are planting your own seeds for the spring please consider preparing some extra to donate or if you can take and start some cuttings from your houseplants they can be used as well. This is our major fundraiser so we need lots of plants. Another source could be from digging up extra plants from your garden. If it is on a large scale our members are eager and willing to assist with thinning out and transplanting under your direction. District advisory meeting/ AGM The Perth Horticultural Society is hosting the 2014 District 2 Spring Advisory Meeting and annual general meeting (AGM). The theme this year is Gardens Growing Forward with

speakers Merilyn Simonds and Mary Shearman Reid. It takes place at the Glad Tidings Pentecostal Church 160 Wayside Dr, Perth, ON (just down the road from Hillside Gardens). Registration cost is $20 with deadline of March 20. There is a book sale, photo contest and silent auction. Please discuss with any executive member for information. If you wish to contribute to our monthly newsletter, The Sunflower, send your submissions to our editor Christy at cmelvin@uoguelph.ca or to our society website as shown below. Please feel free to make suggestions, gardening tips or anything else you wish to share. Our newsletter is available by email if you prefer, just send a request to Christy. This way you can get a copy even if you are unable to attend the monthly meeting. Steveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Service sponsors our newsletter this year. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget to try answering the question each month in the newsletter for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate from Green Acres Greenhouses. Send your answers to Christy at cmelvin@uoguelph.ca. If it is correct your name will go in for a draw with the winner to be announced at the November AGM. Thank you Klass Van Der Meer for this generous gift. Please contact our president, Hope at 613-275-1018 for any information you require about your own local horticultural society.

Community members receive awards at first Brownie Point event By KELLY KENT kkent@perfprint.ca

Community – Who wouldn’t want to be thanked for something they’d done with a heaping plate of brownies? That was the theory behind the first ever Communities in Bloom Brownie Point event, which was held at the Almonte Old Town Hall on Monday, March 3 to thank community members who have made an effort to make the community a beautiful place. “We wanted to recognize a small number of the people who make both large and small efforts to beautify and enhance the area,” said Fern Martin, the chair of the Communities in Bloom committee. Several community groups and individuals were invited out to the event to be recognized for their efforts. Each recipient was given a certificate of appreciation and a seedling tree that can be planted when the weather gets a bit warmer. “We wanted to give out brownies as the awards,” Martin joked, “but we couldn’t quite figure out how we would do that, so you get trees instead.” There were brownies at the event, though – big plates of them baked specially by the Lanark County Support Services group. The recipients who were invited to the event have contributed in some way to the beautification of Mississippi Mills, which has in turn helped the municipality with its Communities in Bloom efforts. Last year, Mississippi Mills participated once again in the Communities in Bloom initiative, which recognizes beautiful, clean communities, receiving

On Monday, March 3, community members were recognized for their contributions to the municipality in the first ever Communities in Bloom Brownie Point event.

four out of five possible blooms – a very high score. “Everyone in this room has helped contribute to that,” said Martin, “and so we need to thank you.” The awards were given out in seven categories: tidiness, for those who make an effort to keep the community clean; institutions, to recognize area

There would be an increase in costs to build a larger facility â&#x20AC;&#x201C; estimated to be between 2,500-3,000 square feet â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but the building would belong to all partners and not just Montague. â&#x20AC;&#x153;More partners mean more revenue for LAWS and less financial commitment for municipalities,â&#x20AC;?

Beckwith has an agreement with the Ottawa Humane Society. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have been invited to participate in this, but I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t heard back,â&#x20AC;? Reynolds said. The LAP working has a meeting scheduled for Friday (March 14) to consider the developments and go over a draft agreement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope to be in a position after this meeting to come back before council with something more concrete,â&#x20AC;? Reynolds said. Melissa Rusk, LAWSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; past president asked if Craig Richardson, an official from the ani-

The Animal Research Act (ARA) is the legislation that governs the operation of pounds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We may need to challenge the legislation,â&#x20AC;? Reynolds said. Right now, legally the only options by way of the ARA are to adopt an animal out, euthanize it or sell it to a research facility. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It only makes sense for an animal to go from the pound to the shelter,â&#x20AC;? mayor Wendy Leblanc said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I agree,â&#x20AC;? Reynolds said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a common sense solution.â&#x20AC;?

Get the know-how on planting trees in Mississippi Mills March 18 kkent@perfprint.ca

Community – With spring in the not-too-distant future, it’s time to start thinking about what plants you’ll be putting into the ground this year, including new trees. That is why the Mississippi Mills Chamber of Commerce and the Beautification Committee will be hosting the first annual Branching Out Tree Talk and Forest Forum event this month, on Tuesday, March 18 at the Almonte Old Town Hall. Starting at 7 p.m. and running until 9 p.m., the event is meant to be an information night on tree planting and care and will work in partnership with the annual tree sale to benefit the Chamber. “People are often hesitant to purchase new trees from the tree sale because they don’t know how to go about planting and taking care of it afterwards, I think,” said Tiffany MacLaren, the town’s community economic and cultural co-ordinator and organizer of the event. “Hopefully people will get all the know-how and confidence they need from the event and will buy trees.” The Mississippi Mills Chamber of Commerce has been holding the annual tree sale for a number of years, selling around 600 new and young trees each year, which are then planted within the town and in surrounding areas. “The idea was for it to be a fundraiser for the Chamber,” said Nicole Guthrie, the Chamber’s

executive director. “We wanted something unique, though, and something that would also benefit the community at the same time that it was benefiting the Chamber.” The Chamber sells a huge variety of young trees – everything from flowering trees to fruit trees – during the sale from mid-February to mid-April every year. The young trees are mature enough to be stable and healthy when they are planted by their purchasers, and can range in price from $35 to $75. All trees come from the

Winkelmolen Nursery in Lynden, Ont. The town’s beautification committee, which orchestrated the four blooms that Mississippi Mills received this year from the Communities in Bloom initiative, also sells trees as a fundraiser: tiny seedlings that go for $3 or $4 each. “We normally raise around $5,000 or $6,000 for the Chamber,” Guthrie said, “and that money goes towards helping us fund all of the activities and events we organize each year.”

While the tree sale has historically been successful, Guthrie and MacLaren said that they think even more people would purchase trees and seedlings to plant if they had more knowledge. That’s where the Branching Out Tree Talk and Forest Forum comes into play. That night, interested residents can come out to the event to hear from a panel of knowledgeable experts like Ed

Lawrence, a Master Gardener, and Ron Ayling, chair of the tree committee. The tree sale runs until midApril, when ordered trees can be picked up at the Mississippi Mills municipal offices on April 26. Anyone interested can view the extensive tree catalog online at www.mississippimills.com/ trees. Trees can also be ordered online from the same website or

at the event itself. Alternatively, young trees can be ordered by calling Kathryn at 613-256-7886. Seedlings will also be available for order from Bonnie at 613-256-1077 ext. 21 until April 18. The Neighbourhood Tomato will also be selling 220-litre rain barrels for $55, which can be ordered at www. rainbarrel.ca/tomato or by calling Deanna at 6113-256-7535.

People First of Lanark County continues to make a difference By TARA GESNER tgesner@perfprint.ca

News – People First of Lanark County (PFLC) continues to grow in members, experience and knowledge. This year the organization celebrates eight years of working on behalf of all people with disabilities, ensuring they get to live a life with dignity and respect. “People First of Lanark County continues to make a difference in so many lives,” Kory Earle said. “We promote equality, assist people trying to speak up for themselves and make their own decisions, and educate the community about the rights, abilities and strengths of people living with supports.” Earle is past president and executive director of the organization, as well as the current leader of People First of Ontario (PFO) and 1st vice president of People First of Canada (PFC). The local chapter was formed on July 21, 2006. Recent PFLC activities include fundraisers for Dew Rotor, a Clayton woman who underwent a double lung transplant in December, and Carleton Place teenager Clayton MacCallum who struggles with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. Each event raised more than $2,000. At People First of Lanark County “we always put people first,” Earle said. The organization’s 2013 community Christmas dinner was a success.

“Every year the free event brings people together on Dec. 25 to share joy, company and good food,” Earle said. To date, in excess of 700 people have enjoyed a festive meal with all the trimmings. “Making a difference in one person’s life is huge,” Earle said, “but 700... words can’t describe how great it is.” Another popular event hosted by the organization is the annual Bunny Run. This year, the Easter Bunny hops into downtown Carleton Place on Saturday, April 19. The event takes place between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. “Our Bunny Run begins at the Moore House on Bridge Street, across from the town hall,” Earle said. Boys and girls are invited to come early and meet the Easter Bunny, and parents are welcome to bring along a camera for pictures. “We are super excited to have mayor Wendy LeBlanc bring greetings to participants,” Earle said. With a following of young ones or those young at heart searching for goodies (chocolates, prizes and more), the holiday hare will travel through the downtown core stopping by a number of businesses. “Hundreds of children take part each year,” Earle said. “It really is fun for everyone.” Additionally, the Bunny Run is a great way to discover what Carleton Place’s downtown has so much to offer.

and manager Cathie McOrmond for helping to make the event a success. “The annual People First of Lanark County Walkathon, held in conjunction with the Lambs Down Park Festival each June, has raised thousands of much-needed dollars,” Earle said. PFLC operates on a mere $15,000 yearly budget. “Finances are tight,” Earle said. The group does not receive financial support from the provincial or federal governments. Manon Lépine is the PFLC’s president. Diane Sexsmith is executive director, and when the office closes at the end of the day, her work always carries on from home. “We’re always here if people need a shoulder to cry on,” Earle said. During the month of March volunteers for the organization will be going door-to-door collecting money for a change drive. Canvassers will have proper ID badges. Without its dedicated volunteers, PFLC wouldn’t survive. “We need to thank our supporters for the light they bring to our organization,” Earle said.

Kory Earle People First of Lanark County continues to hold the Bunny Run each year to give back to the community, thanking residents for their support. The organization thanks the Business Improvement Association (BIA)

undermined his self worth. A year and a half ago Earle came out as an openly gay person – a secret he kept for 20 years. “It wasn’t easy, but if I wasn’t going to be true to myself, how could I be true to others?” he said. “If I tell people to be proud of who they are, I should be proud of who I am, right?” Earle continued. “Now I am moving forward living my life free.” The PFO board officially endorsed Earle’s run for the national presidency earlier this month. The election takes place on Nov. 2 in Winnipeg. PFLC’s office is located at 355 Moffatt St. in Carleton Place. For more information about the organization, call 613-257-7111 or 613-492-7111, email koryearle@hotmail.com or visit www. facebook.com/pages/People-First-ofLanark-County/409905455785360.

Election In May Earle will commence his campaign for the presidency of PFC. “The challenges I have faced over time have only made me a stronger, more mature person,” the 28-year-old said. Growing up, he was judged, bullied and called “retard” (the R-word), which left him feeling suicidal, and

Have your books and eat them too at Novel Cakes event March 22 By KELLY KENT kkent@perfprint.ca

Community – In the typical bookworm’s mind, perhaps the only thing that would make books better than they already are would be if they were made out of cake and could be devoured along with the story inside. Now, thanks to the Mississippi Mills Public Library and their first Novel Cakes event, this dream could become a reality. “The idea is to celebrate cakes in a novel way,” said Pam Harris, the library’s chief executive officer and chief librarian. “I thought this would be a fun way to do that.”

Taking place on Saturday, March 22 at the Almonte branch of the library, the idea behind the event is to celebrate books through the art of cake decorating. Participants can bake their favourite cake and then decorate it to represent a book of their choosing. The cake can represent the novel’s cover, author, characters or an underlying theme – anything you can dream up. As long as it represents novels or reading in some way, whether that’s in an abstract manner or a concrete one, it’s welcome at the event. There’s no need for participants to register for the event beforehand, cake entries can simply be brought to the

library at 9:30 a.m. on the day of the event. Cakes will be set up in the meeting room of the Almonte branch where the public will be able to view them throughout the day. Not only will the public be able to view the cakes, but they can purchase tickets – two for $1 or five for $2 – to place next to their favourite entries as a fundraiser for the library. The public’s favourite cake will be awarded the People’s Choice Award at the end of the day. A highly experienced panel of judges, including local merchant Baker Bob Graff and Mary and Terry Lumsden from Mill Street Books, will rank the cakes during the judging from 2

p.m. to 4 p.m. that day as well. Prizes will be awarded for the top three cakes in the bunch. “I’m really hoping that this will be a fun event for everyone to celebrate books,” Harris said. More information about the event can be found on posters around town or by calling the library at 613-2561037. Additional events: The Mississippi Mills Public Library will be hosting their first Young Writer’s Workshop from 7 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, March 19. Held for aspiring writers between the ages of 13 and 18 at the Almonte

GET YOUR FIRST

branch of the library, the workshop will bring a variety of young writers together to establish a networking group. “We want to bring these young writers together and provide a space for them to communicate, share ideas and learn for each other,” Harris said. She said that some writers may want to bring writing samples or notes from current projects to bounce ideas off their peers, but it’s not mandatory. “We just want to give these kids an opportunity to come together,” Harris said. “Hopefully we establish a regular meeting group, where these young writers can come regularly.” For more information, contact Harris at the library at 613-256-1037.

Decals, fine netting across windows prevents birds from flying into them Lifestyle – Spring migrants are not here yet, but the American Crows are letting us know that they are everywhere one looks. While driving along Appleton Road/ County 17, Ramsay Ward, two fields with dried sunflowers still standing seem to keep these Crows busy. From 35 to 60 of them can be seen flying in and out of these fields. Just east of Almonte, at the end of February, Frances Bryerton wonders where all the woodpeckers have gone. With five suet and other feeders, only a single woodpecker

comes to dine. Usually, she has four to six of these birds coming to feed. A male Ruffed Grouse has been displaying to three females at a friend’s home in Westport, Feb. 22. At Mary and Howard Robinson’s home near Clayton, at the end of February, two grouse posed in their backyard, allowing Howard to take their picture, as shown above. The first week of March, Janet Armstrong has had two grouse hit her windows, and wondered what to do. Janet lives on Ramsay

Concession 12. Cliff Bennett advised her put decals on the outside of her windows, instead of inside. She could also put fine netting across the outside as well, allowing the netting

to sway a bit in any breeze to warn the birds away from the glass. In Ramsay Ward, south of Carleton Place, Peggy Stewart called to tell of a Sharp-shinned Hawk that hit one of her windows. It lay on the deck for a few minutes, then flew into a tree and rested before flying away. Her usual bird visitors returned, including several Blue Jays, Blackcapped Chickadees, nuthatches, Dark-eyed Juncos, and Purple Finch. The Northern Cardinals had left

before the hawk came to the yard. Purple Finches have been at our feeders, and at Mary and Howard Robinson’s feeders. They are also at a lady’s feeders in the Sheridan Rapids Road area. A note from Bob Jurmain in Pakenham ward, tells of putting out birdseed and observing a Northern Goshawk perched on a tree. When the hawk saw Bob, it flew away right overhead. Please call Lynda at 613-2565013 or email bennett@magma.ca with bird reports.

If chiropractic care removes the interference between the nervous system and your liver, your liver cell will regrow as fast as 90 days, two months faster than the Wikipedia average! So does this mean that chiropractic care helped your liver heal faster? No! Your chiropractic care removes the disconnect between your brain and your liver which allows you to heal at the rate you were created to heal. You were created perfectly so chiropractic care helps you achieve your own greatness again! The normal in the world is that you should be great! Kind of a complex example but I hope this helps... Call a chiropractor for good health.

This photo was taken by Howard Robinson at the end of February and shows two Ruffled Grouses strolling in his backyard near Clayton.

First, Let me be frank, NOTHING makes you heal faster. You were designed to heal at a specific rate when you came into this World. Unfortunately, most of the things we do to ourselves in this World literally SLOW DOWN healing. Chiropractic care removes the disconnect in your body’s ability to heal. Everything in you has a life cycle. For example, your liver cells last 90-120 days, but they regrow. They will regrow at this rate of every 90-120 days provided your liver is perfectly connected to your brain through your nervous system. Sometimes the nervous system is choked off at the level of the spine that innovates your liver because of injury, poor posture or decay. This disconnect is so common that Wikipedia estimates the ‘normal’ life cycle of a liver cell is 5 months or 150 days on average instead of 90 days.

PKP: The Dark Knight rises in Quebec

ditorial – There is no French equivalent for the term game-changer, but, Pierre-Karl Peladeau’s entry into the Quebec election race is just that, in either official language. The former head of Sun Media, known in la belle province by his initials PKP, whose media empire included newspapers like the Sun chain in English-speaking Canada, and Le Journal de Montreal, and other outlets, in Quebec, announced this past Sunday that he would be running for the avowedly separatist Parti Quebecois in St. Jerome, north of Montreal. Political commentators are already falling over themselves to try to find a precedent for this in Quebec political history. Kelly McParland of the National Post compared PKP’s jump into politics to be on par with Jean Charest leaving Ottawa to lead the Quebec Liberal party, while Toronto Star columnist Chantal Hebert compares it to Lucien Bouchard bolting from Brian Mulroney’s government in 1990 to set up the Bloc Quebecois. In fact, Don Macpherson of the Montreal Gazette had to go all the way to Europe to find an equivalent for the move, comparing PKP’s move to the political life of media magnate and former prime minister Silvio

Burlesconi in Italy. (Proving the oft-heard remark that if Alberta is Canada’s most American-like province, Quebec is its most continental Europe-like province.) While the move is being painted by the PQ as a drive to shore up their economic credentials, and draw more conservative soft nationalist votes away from the right-of-centre Coalition Avenir Quebec (CAQ), the PQ would need a miracle for people to take its economic record seriously. The PQ has done more to damage Quebec’s economy than any other party while in office. None other than former premier and London School of Economics graduate Jacques Parizeau wrote recently – in Le Journal, of all places – that, for the first time in decades, he worried about the future of Quebec’s economy. This is the party that promised balanced books by 2014, and didn’t deliver, a party which, since being first elected in 1976, has seen capital, both financial and human, leave the province in droves. Premier Pauline Marois even described the loss of 26,000 jobs last month as “normal.” This is the type of economic thinking Canadians have to deal with on the other side of the

Ottawa River. And PKP’s business record is not perfect. The Quebecor family printing business, Quebecor World, went bankrupt on his watch. PKP is in this, he says, to create the country of Quebec. He’s in this for himself. He’s already butted heads with Quebec’s ethics watchdog – talk about a thankless job – saying that, no, he would not have to sell his Quebecor shares then, later, grudgingly, admitting that, yes, he may have to, or put them into a blind trust. But nobody is fooled. He is no friend of working people, and though thousands of English-Canadians watched his fiercely federalist, rightwing Sun News Network, and read his Sun papers, he doesn’t want to be in the same country as his viewers and readers. The Sun originally did not want to sell itself to Peladeau’s father back in the 1990s because of his separatist leanings. Following his death, PKP took over, and said he had little to no interest in politics. Well, they believed him, and sold to Quebecor. They must be feeling like they were sold a bill of goods right about now. PKP doesn’t take orders from anyone, and many media outlets are already saying that it is only a matter of time before he seeks to replace Marois. She will be 65 soon, and is already

in the history books as Quebec’s first female premier. If he does lead the PQ and/or become premier, it does not bode well for democracy. It is a collaborative business, and it does not need bullies. Also, his economic outlook is more in tune with Prime Minister Stephen Harper than with Marois. Back in 1976, Rene Levesque stated that his government would have a “favourable prejudice to workers.” Now that progressive sheen appears to be lost, after Quebec’s largest labour organization has called him “probably one of the worst employers Quebec has ever known,” with a record 14 lockouts, including a two-year lockout at Le Journal. This matters here because, suddenly, separatism has once again come to the forefront. Harper, to his credit, is reaching out to opposition leader Thomas Mulcair and Liberal leader Justin Trudeau to form a united front in the event of a PQ majority government on April 7. Good for Harper for rising above politics to fight for the future of our country, because, like Bouchard before him, PKP may well galvanize sovereignty back into a national unit crisis once again. We can only hope that the good people of St. Jerome do the right thing and don’t let him get past the starting gate.

Together we can make a difference Opinion – Did you know March is Epilepsy Awareness Month? Whether you are suffering from epilepsy, love someone who is, or would just like to support epilepsy awareness and research, please come out to Shoppers Drug Mart in Carleton Place – the McNeely Avenue location – next Saturday, March 22, for the annual Bake Sale and Makeover Day. Proceeds benefit EpLink, an epilepsy research program funded by the Ontario Brain Institute. Highlights of the fun, important event, which runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., include $10 makeovers, a bake sale, information booth and much more. In the region of 15,000 Canadians (all ages) are diagnosed each year with epilepsy, a physical condition characterized by sudden, brief changes in how the brain works. Typically, it presents itself in the form of seizures. I love someone with epilepsy, and his struggle of dealing with the condition began with his first seizure at age 15 and continued long past seizure control, which was obtained by medication. Even today he has a fear of having a seizure in public. He won’t admit it, but I can see it in his eyes, especially when he feels a shortness of breath. Seizures can alter the perception of respiration and fullness of breath. It wasn’t until many years later that my loved one received an accurate diagnosis:

cortical dysplasia. Cortical dysplasia refers to a congenital (presTara Firma ent at birth) abnormality in the brain’s development. As the brain naturally develops in utero, neurons (which grow in the innermost part of the brain) spread or migrate outward to the cerebral cortex. Should these neurons fail to spread out and position correctly, the signals will misfire – triggering a seizure. Many persons with epilepsy don’t tell anyone their health status due to public misconceptions about the condition. Purple Day, the World Day for Epilepsy Awareness, held yearly on March 26, is an excellent opportunity to promote epilepsy knowledge, break down the stigma and empower individuals living with the disorder. Prompted by her own struggles, Cassidy Megan created the idea of Purple Day in 2008. She was only nine-years-old. Remember, simply telling people how epilepsy has touched your life, volunteering or creating a fundraising event, your efforts will raise awareness about the condition. The more you learn about epilepsy and help to educate others, the better you will be able to fight stigma and discrimination. If you have any comments or questions for Tara Gesner, she can be reached by email at: tgesner@perfprint.ca.

REAL ESTATE CAREER SEMINAR

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Resident expresses concerns with proposed paintball park of highway knows this and knows what the outcome of this will be. Noise: The article talks about the decibel level between 43 and 46 from the paintball gun, but what about the decibel level of the game itself? Anywhere from 15 to 30 people playing a war game, yelling, two teams at a time, whistles going off every 15 minutes, air horns every half hour, really would anyone want to live within hearing distance of this? We all live in the country for a very different kind of noise, a beautiful noise: Frogs, many song birds, some endangered, the wind, Canada geese coming and going, coyotes, and rabbits. Yes, I can watch the rabbits and hear the rabbits as they play, just as Howard Clifford from Lanark said in the article. These war games will also be heard by our frogs and song birds, turtles and so on and what will happen to them at nesting time or play-

ing or breeding time? These war games go on in the winter months also. Country living in the winter is standing outside in that absolute quiet where you can hear a tree crack for a long distance and the coyoteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s yelp is just that much clearer. Now you get the good old Canadian snow machines going by but that takes about four seconds and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re gone. What I cannot imagine is that absolute quiet being replaced by war games. About the Militkys (owners of the paintball park), the part of your article that reads, in the coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estimation, the property is not a quiet rural neighbourhood is wrong. It is, in fact, a very quiet neighbourhoodâ&#x20AC;ŚI did read from more than one neighbor that the Militkys ways and their attitude are the reason for the friction and tension. Says one: â&#x20AC;&#x153;To them, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dam the torpedoes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to be stopped.â&#x20AC;?

The neighbours say the park is intrusive, noisy and results in too much traffic in the country. A man who lives a kilometre from the park says he hears the noise and used to go biking with his kids, but no more. One neighbor could not ride her horse on the weekend because the noise spooked her horse. I also saw that several nearby families had to sell their homes. The value of our homes will most definitely go down. Who would move out to the country and live within hearing distance of a commercial paintball facility? My hope is that Drummond/ North Elmsley denies the application for this commercial zoning as it is not a suitable place for a commercial paintball and recreational development.

Editorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s note: The following is a letter in response to an article â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Paintball park decision deferred pending studiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; which appeared in the Feb. 20 issue of the Canadian Gazette. DEAR EDITOR: This paintball park if it is passed and zoned commercial, will affect a lot of people, not just the 29 residents living adjacent to the property or 50 residential homes located within one kilometre. Everyone travelling between Perth and Carleton Place will be affected by the traffic. The Ministry of Transportation has denied any more road entrances from Highway 7 on this stretch, concluding it dangerous as a stop and turn highway, yet the average weekend turnout for the paintball park on a Saturday will be about 120 people. That is a lot of stop and turns on Highway 7. Everyone who travels this stretch

THE EMC - A/CP10 - Thursday, March 13, 2014


By TARA GESNER

tgesner@perfprint.ca

Community – The work towards a full life for everyone affected by epilepsy is only possible with the community’s help. The fourth annual Bake Sale and Makeover Day for epilepsy awareness and research takes place next Saturday, March 22, hosted by Shoppers Drug Mart in Carleton Place, McNeely Avenue location. The event, running from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., offers makeovers, a bake sale and epilepsy information booth. “It’s going to be a great event this year!” Karen Fisher said. “Platinum Black is joining us to do nails and Ronski the Clown will be there for kids of all ages.” A resident of Ashton, Fisher is a person with epilepsy. Since the age of 11 months, the condition has dominated her life, her feelings and her thoughts. Purple Day March is Epilepsy Awareness Month, and every March 26 – Purple Day – people across the country come together to promote epilepsy knowledge, reduce stigma and empower individuals living with the disorder. Cassidy Megan of Nova Scotia, prompted by her own struggles with epilepsy, established Purple Day in 2008. At the time, she was just nine-years-old. Approximately 300,000 Canadians are affected by epilepsy, a neurological condition involving the nervous system. It is characterized by repeated and un-

provoked seizures, which can occur at any age. Effects, however, vary widely from person to person. In an effort to stop complex partial seizures, Fisher was forced to decide whether or not to go forward with a left temporal lobectomy – after learning in 2007 from neurologist Dr. Alan Guberman that she was an ideal candidate for the surgery. In 2008 on June 27 at the London Health Science Centre (LHSC) Fisher went ahead with the procedure. The Epilepsy program at LHSC, founded in 1987, ranks as one of the largest in North America, treating patients from across the country and training neurologists and neurosurgeons from around the world. Fisher struggled during the months that followed her surgery – developing clinical depression. She was forced to leave her job as a certified general accountant. Fortunately, with the love and support of family, friends and health profes-

sionals, it took just over three years for Fisher to beat the depression and return to her profession. Since this time she has supported others with epilepsy and authored her autobiography – My Lifetime Roller Coaster Ride with Epilepsy. This year all proceeds from the Bake Sale and Makeover Day benefit EpLink, an epilepsy research program funded by the Ontario Brain Institute (OBI). “The cost for a makeover or to have your nails painted is $10,” Fisher said.

With no successor, county Police Services Board chairmanship will rotate to host communities by Stephanie Gray.

desmond.devoy@metroland.com

News – Derek Love, chair of the police services boards in Lanark County, threw down the gauntlet and no one picked it up. As such, the chairmanship of the Lanark County Police Services Board (PSB) will now rotate around the county, to whichever municipality happens to be hosting it. The host municipality will now provide an acting chair for the meeting, as well as supplying a secretary. The plan, however, was not without its critics. “When you are changing from one area to another, to another, to another, we may find some inefficiencies,” said George Braithwaite of the Lanark Highlands PSB, during the county PSB meeting at the Tay Valley Township municipal offices in Glen Tay on Wednesday, March 5. “We should be under no delusions that this is the secondbest option. It is a burden that the host community has to chair.” Grant Chaplin of Mississippi Mills also had “some concerns about records management and continuity of records management,” particularly storage, retention of motions, and resolutions. “Since I have been here, maybe we have had one, maybe two, motions,” said Cynthia

Moyles, secretary of the Beckwith Township PSB. “This was only meant to be a discussion group,” said Carleton Place fire chief Les Reynolds. “It has no power to act or do anything.” On a more practical level, Tay Valley Township PSB secretary Amanda Mabo suggested: “We could use a USB stick

that rotated with each municipality.” “Until somebody loses it,” joked Reynolds. “I’d recommend making two (USBs).” Love had just come to the end of his second term as chair of the county group, and was seeking a replacement, which didn’t happen.

Eddy and the Stingrays to rock Almonte Civitan Club April 5 Community – The days of the malt shop and the sock hop will be brought to life once more, as Eddy and the Stingrays entertain party-goers at the 2014 Almonte General Hospital/Fairview Manor Foundation Spring Dance. The popular rock and roll dance band, which has been performing for over three decades, kept the dance floor packed all night at last year’s hospital equipment fundraiser. They will be returning to the Almonte Civitan Club Saturday, April 5. Eddy and the Stingrays are a four-piece band which faithfully recreates ‘50s and early ‘60s hits like Blue Suede Shoes, Heartbreak Hotel, and That’ll Be the Day, complete with matching stage outfits, colour-coordinated instruments, and choreography. The hospital foundation dinner-dance also includes a chance to bid on a silent auction of items donated by generous sponsors. Tickets for the dinner, dance and auction are $40, and are on sale now. To order tickets or donate an auction item, call Gerry Huddleston at the Almonte General Hospital/Fairview Manor office, at 613-256-2514, extension 2297.

Farewell Mississippi Mills PSB The Mississippi Mills PSB is no more, but Chaplin, the former chair of that board, was in attendance nonetheless – as the chair of Mississippi Mills’ new Community Policing Advisory Council (CPAC), seeking to continue on membership in the county PSB association. “I asked them to come, personally,” said Love. “Does anyone have any problems with them being part of the board?” Not a single delegation objected. “I, for one, welcome them with open arms,” said Neil Fennell, chair of Tay Valley Township’s PSB. Mississippi Mills Mayor John Levi explained, “We had 325,000 reasons for doing so,” converting to a CPAC, “to lower the costs of policing. We wanted to continue with a PSB, but we couldn’t say no to a gift of money.” Carleton Place also welcomed its northern neighbour back into the fold, but Reynolds requested that “an invitation should be extended to Drummond/North Elmsley Township,” which does not have a PSB, and is not a part of the county body. “We are still paying our due to OAPSB (Ontario Association of Police Services Boards) and federally, as though we were a PSB,” said Chaplin.

News – Carleton Place resident Lorey Miller is the first to file his nomination papers for the 2014 municipal election. Miller submitted his papers to run for councillor at the beginning of February, almost one month after the campaign officially began. “It’s an honour and privilege to run for council,” Miller told the Canadian Gazette. Miller’s campaign theme is “Growing Carleton Place Together.” “If you substitute Carleton Place with any other word... education, opportunities, business... to me that all fits within the borders of Carleton Place,” he said. Last October, Miller was one of 14 graduates of the Carleton Place Municipal Academy. Held over two nights, the program covered topics such as types of government, council procedures, committees of council, municipal election and budget processes. More importantly, he has 30 years of experience in the workforce: government, private sector, small business, etc. Miller’s community involvement includes 15 years with the Almonte, Carleton Place & Pakenham branch of the Canadian Cancer Society. He was president for one year. Originally from Canada’s East Coast – born and raised in New Brunswick – Miller came to Ottawa because “I thought it would be great for me to understand the capital of Canada – the seat of power,” he said. Miller and his wife Barbara have called Carleton Place home for 14 years, previously residing in Orleans. He studied law and criminology at

Lorey Miller Carleton University and also has a background in information technology. This diverse background creates a beneficial skill set. He is interested in keeping communication clear and transparent – from the taxpayers to the decision makers and back again. “Improving transparency and openness creates trust with the public,” he said. In regards to growth, it’s not a scary thing for the political hopeful. Instead, he believes it’s something that should be embraced. In order to govern the activities of everyone, Miller said it’s important to understand the town’s bylaws; however, “we need to give people enough freedom so they feel they can be enterprising and move forward.” “I am not interested in an adversarial approach to development,” he said. “I don’t believe it’s worthwhile for our town.” By way of Miller’s experience in working with collaborative teams, “we make certain everyone is clear of his or her roles and responsibilities so there

are no problems down the road.” “Clearly there will be challenges,” he said, “but we need to deal with them in a team-based environment with everyone on the same page.” Carleton Place stands on the edge of becoming a city. “What does that mean? What types of services will we be expected to deliver over and above what we do today?” Miller asked. He believes the hospital is a prime engine for the economy. Companies evaluating relocation “look to communities to see whether or not there is critical care available for staff,” he said. “I think it’s great we have this hospital facility here,” he continued, “and I am a fan of what they are trying to do.” The hospital redevelopment process is lengthy, and “no one really knows at what point it will finally be approved,” Miller said. He would like to broaden the scope and re-frame the discussion to include more ministers, such as the education minister. Miller views the hospital as a gateway for learning in life sciences. “We can work with our school boards, partnering to develop co-op programs in the life sciences,” he explained. “It takes a lot more than doctors and nurses to run a hospital. There are administrators, technicians, technologists... a variety of disciplines.” Miller and his wife are true animal lovers, and in addition to owning pets, they have probably served close to 5,000 meals to strays in their backyard. In regards to the proposed Lanark Animal Pound in Montague Township, he said the matter has “created a discussion that is going to result in a much more informed decision.” Miller can be reached at loreymiller@hotmail.com.

SAFETY TIPS Home Escape Planning: If you are aware of someone living alone nearby, check with them to make sure they are safe.

Did you know that 42 Canadians will learn today that they have epilepsy? Or that 300,000 Canadian now live with this neurological disorder? It’s true, yet the stigma surrounding epilepsy means that many people don’t talk about it. March is Epilepsy Awareness Month, and this year’s theme is “Break the Silence.” “Historically, people with epilepsy used to be shunned, or worse,” says Ottawa Valley Family Health Team physician Dr. Graeme McKillop. “It can be a terrifying for those who suffer from it, and from those around them, because the disorder involves seizures that may come on with no warning.” Epilepsy is caused by sudden, brief changes in how the brain works. These changes are called seizures, which can affect a person’s consciousness, movements or actions for a short time. Seizures may be partial—restricted to a certain area of the brain—or general, involving the entire brain. A simple partial seizure may involve unusual sensations, such as odours, visual abnormalities, sudden or restless movements or hearing or vision distortion. Consciousness is not affected.

Complex partial seizures involve loss of awareness. The person may appear dazed and confused, make random motions, and cannot recall the episode. Generalized absence seizures involve a complete loss of awareness, and the sufferer may stare into space. These seizures often appear in children and disappear by adolescence. Tonic-clonic seizures are generalized convulsions that occur in two stages. In the first stage, the person loses consciousness, falls and the body becomes rigid. In the second phase, the body extremities jerk and twitch. Status epilepticus describes recurring seizures with no return to consciousness in between.

This ad is generously underwritten by the THE EMC - A/CP13 - Thursday, March 13, 2014

“Partial seizures are the most common,” says Dr. McKillop. Epileptic seizures may be caused by a brain injury, such as trauma, stroke, infection or brain tumour. In 50 per cent to 60 per cent of cases, the cause is unclear. Tools used to diagnose epilepsy include blood tests, lumbar puncture (spinal tap), electroencephalography (EEG) or brain imaging such as MRI or CT scans. Treatment for epilepsy caused by stroke, tumour or a permanent brain injury often includes antiseizure medication. If medication does not work, surgery can be an option. “The array of treatment options for seizures is expanding all the time,” says Dr. McKillop. “Treatments are becoming more successful, and, in some cases, eliminate the seizures altogether.” If you or a loved one suffer a seizure of any kind, seek medical attention. “In the case of a first seizure, go to the Emergency Department, because medical professionals will want to run tests to determine the cause,” advises Dr. McKillop. “Given the advancements in treatment, there is no reason to avoid seeking care.”

Fiddler Scott Woods to play at Clayton Community Hall April 11 Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Renowned Canadian fiddler Scott Woods and his band will soon be in your area to deliver an authentic live tribute to Don Messerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jubilee â&#x20AC;&#x201C; one of the most popular TV shows in Canadian history. The people of St. Georgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Anglican Church and the village of Clayton are excited to bring the renowned concert to their village for the first time. Scott Woods Old Time Jubilee reunites Cape Breton tenor Tommy Leadbeater (as Charlie Chamberlain) with Canadian grand master fiddle champion Scott Woods (as Don Messer) and features the velvet vocals of Lynda Lewis (as Marg Osborne) in a two-hour masterful performance honouring the days

when Don Messer and his islanders ruled the airwaves. The fast paced, uplifting show delights audiences of all ages with old time fiddle music, sensational step dancing, trick fiddling, family humour and more. Woods is a multiple Canadian Open and Canadian Grand Master Fiddle Champion. He is known affectionately throughout Canada as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Flippinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Fiddlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a nickname earned as a result of a running somersault he does while playing his fiddle without missing a beat. The Scott Woods Band travels across Canada each year performing up to 150 concerts, almost all of which help to support churches, charities and other community groups.

Thunder and Timberwolves split Valley final series opening games By STAFF

Sports – After dropping the opening game of the EOJHL Valley Division final series in Renfrew last Friday, the Almonte Thunder roared back in front of their home crowd to take Game 2 on Saturday and even the series 1-1. The exciting division final continued with Game 3 in Renfrew Tuesday night (March 11) and Game 4 on Wednesday at the Almonte & District Community Centre. Game 5 goes Friday night (March 14) at the Renfrew Arena. Should the series go further, Almonte will host Game 6 at the Community Centre on Saturday night (7:30 p.m. start) with a seventh and deciding game back in Renfrew on Sunday, March 16, also a 7:30 p.m. start. In the second game of the series last Saturday in Almonte, Ben Wade and Luke Martin each had a goal and two assists and goalie Alex Daley made 33 saves as the Thunder squared the series with the Timberwolves at one win apiece with a 6-2 victory. Thunder opened strong in this one, emerging from the first period with a 3-0 lead on goals from Wade at 4:47 from Tyler McKechnie and Brandon Mendham; Justin Marquis at 12:29 from Riley Shore; and Andrew Rowbotham at 14:01, assisted by Martin and Mendham. Wade and Rowbotham’s goals were scored on the power

Sports – On Saturday, March 8, the Almonte Thunder hosted the Renfrew Timberwolves at the Almonte Community Centre.

Matt Gagne took the loss for the ’Wolves. In the series opener the night before in Renfrew, Tanner Smith scored at 12:03 of the first overtime to give the Timberwolves a 4-3 win. In a tight game from the opening face-off, Andrew Rowbotham forced the game to OT with his second of the post season at 15:39 of the third period. Liam Killeen and Jordan Bosely assisted on the tying goal. Just five minutes before, Kurtis Leclaire had put the home side ahead 3-2, from Bradbury and Teddy Suckow. The lead changed hands several times in this one. Thunder broke the ice with Luke Martin scoring 14 minutes into the first period, assisted by Ben Wade and Cameron Cornwall. In the second period, Bradbury tied the game 1-1 just 39 seconds in, then Suckow gave the Timberwolves their first lead at 13:02 on the power play.

They outshot the Thunder 24-4 (after being outshot 12-3 in the first) and closed the gap to 3-2 with a pair of unanswered goals from Tyler MacDonald and Kurtis Leclaire. Colin Bradbury assisted on both for Renfrew. They continued to pressure the Thunder early in the third. But back by more outstanding goaltending from Daley, they managed to hold their ground before connecting on some insurance goals later in the period. Defenceman Conor Rolland finally gave Almonte some breathing room with his first of the playoffs, from Martin and Wade at the 11:12 mark. Martin then connected for the Thunder’s third power play goal of the game, this time a two-man advantage with Timberwolves Colin Bradbury and Tanner Smith in the box with consecutive minors for cross checking and slashing. Assisted by Rowbotham and Wade, the goal came at 15:14 and put the game out of reach. Nick Villeneuve then closed out the scoring from Shore and McKechnie at 18:24.

Sports – On Thursday, Feb. 20, two members of the Ottawa Skyhawks basketball team held a workshop for 32 lucky students from eight area schools, from Perth to Carleton Place. Students from each school displaying excellent basketball skills were invited to participate in the event, which was meant to encourage young kids to enjoy sports. Clockwise from top left: Students pose with the two Skyhawks players, Bol Kong, front, and Jamie Vanderbeken, back, after the workshop; Vanderbeken signs a hat for a student; students participate in a shooting challenge; and Caldwell Street Public School students with Vanderbeken and Kong; and students dribble down the court during a ball-handling game.

Thrifty is nifty at New2You thrift store in Carleton Place By TARA GESNER tgesner@perfprint.ca

Business – Finding a great bargain and helping three great causes is a lot easier for Carleton Place and area residents now that New2You thrift store has opened its doors. New2You, located at 10511 Highway 7, next to the Gourmet Restaurant, celebrated its official grand opening on Saturday, March 1, with a ribbon cutting ceremony attended by mayor Wendy LeBlanc. Owner Lauri Moussa said the shop has been abuzz with activity since opening three weeks ago. “The reception from the community has so far been amazing,” she said, “and there has been a steady stream of people coming in.” Lauri and her husband Sam Moussa Sr. have been thrift shopping for seven years, and the more they did it the more they loved it. Today’s thrift stores are trendy, specialized and in high demand. New2You is well stocked, offering residents gently used, quality clothing and household goods. New clothing is also purchased and sold for half the price. “We have clothing for babies, children, youth,

women and men,” Lauri said, “and we even offer plus sizes.” All merchandise in the store is organized by colour. “I go through everything,” Lauri said, “and anything that I can’t put out on the floor is shipped to Africa through a connection.” Other items available for purchase include purses, jewelry, shoes, coats, ties and scarves. Too, silent auction showcases are also located at the front of the store and feature unique collectibles. “We accept donations at the store,” Lauri said, “and we also have drop boxes throughout Carleton Place and Almonte.” Proceeds from items sold directly support three charities: Valérie’s Flutter Foundation, Lanark Animal Welfare Society (LAWS) and Just 4 Kics. Valérie’s Flutter Foundation, located in Orleans, raises awareness for all types of cancers, especially for the more rare types that lack funding. As a child Lauri was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma. “I am a cancer survivor,” she said. “Also, there is a strong family history.” Situated in Smiths Falls, LAWS has been caring for abused, abandoned and lost animals for more than 35 years. It is a no-kill shelter.

“Our store mascot – Maggie – is a rescue,” Lauri explained. “She’s part Shih Tzu, part Yorkie.” Based out of Oakville, Just 4 Kics assists many Canadian families who are unable to enrol their children in organized sports due to a lack of income. Lauri grew up in Nepean, resided in Carleton Place for 22 years, and moved to Almonte two and a half years ago. Previously, she worked for Air Canada. New2You store hours: Monday, closed; Tuesday to Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. “We have a wonderful space with lots of parking to make shopping that much more convenient for visitors,” Lauri said. “Everybody here is phenomenal.” For addition information about New2You, call 613-807-1267, email new2you@gmx.us or visit www.facebook.com/New2You.HWY7.

Once again, the Beckwith Youth Committee (BYC) hosted the event, which featured a day packed full of free, fun activities for everyone. Clockwise from top: Horse drawn sleigh rides; Joseph Drapeau, age 13, of Beckwith won the popular chili cookoff, earning a $25 gift certificate for the Ashton Pub and the coveted trophy; BYC members (from left) Chey Leitch, Emily Loiselle, Chelsi Leitch and Mariah Sturgess; and five-year-old Ashtyn Dufresne of Beckwith knew which way the wind was blowing.

High hopes for medical marijuana plant in Smiths Falls By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

News – Chuck Rifici is no drug dealer, but he’s got a warehouse full of marijuana. In fact, for a guy who has millions of dollars worth of weed at his business, it was a testament to just how far medical marijuana has come towards wider societal acceptance that a member of the Smiths Falls Police Service introduced Rifici at a recent conference in Blacks Corners. “How does one become a licensed commercial marijuana grower in the former Hershey plant?” Rifici asked rhetorically, during his presentation at the Lanark County and Town of Smiths Falls municipal drug strategy committee networking day on Friday, Feb. 28 at the Beckwith Township council chambers. “I view it as a pharmaceutical company coming to town.” Rifici is the president and chief executive officer of Tweed Inc., in Smiths Falls, which was just licensed about a month ago and is now producing pot on site. Medical marijuana has been legal, with a permit, since 2001. In 2002, according to Rifici, there were between 400 and 500 patients growing their own product at home. “It made sense to allow home growing,” with such a small number, said Rifici. In time, however, that number grew to 40,000. “What made sense for 500 does not make sense for 40,000. People had concerns with the old situation.” One reason was security while another was that it was “very difficult to obtain consistent quality product.” Under the old system, a grower would have to fill out between 20 and 30 pages of forms, “and it was very much a last resort… to make sure that (medically) everything else had been tried.” While society’s outlook on medical marijuana

has changed, so has Rifici’s outlook on some of the terminology associated with it. “I used to bristle at using the term medicine,” he said, but he can certainly attest to his product’s benefits. While there are any number of jokes about medical marijuana, he has heard anecdotal evidence of people’s spinal and eye pain being relieved. Under the new system, with a doctor prescribing the number of grams to be smoked or inhaled per day, “it’s a much more streamlined process.” With an aging population, “we do expect it to grow quite considerably.” Already, Health Canada is predicting that up to half a million Canadians could be using the product soon. While his company may be a beneficiary of legalization for medical use, so-called compassion clubs may not survive the change. “Compassion clubs operate in a grey environment,” said Rifici. “They are illegal but it depends on the local law enforcement in the area.” The compassion clubs try to grow their own material, or dip into the supplies of people who used to grow at home. When it comes to buying from the criminal drug world, “those are not people who these clubs like to deal with. They will dry up.” With Colorado experimenting with the legalization of marijuana, Rifici hastened to add that “the Canadian market is very different from (what) we see in the United States. (There) people just go into retail outlets,” to make their purchases, much like Dutch patrons do at coffee shops in The Netherlands. In Canada, there are “no retail storefronts. We grow from seed to sale. We are an online storefront.” In fact, there are 25 varieties on site, though they can only sell dry cannabis, and “it’s grow-

ing up in a bank-like environment.” In fact, the old Hershey plant may now be more secure than one’s neighbourhood bank, with a secure perimeter, 24/7 video monitoring – which must be kept on record for up to two years – a restricted zone, swipe cards and even a thumb scanner. Employees have to be security cleared if they are ever going to be alone with any of the product, even momentarily. “No one who hasn’t gone through the security check has been left alone with the product,” said Rifici. The marijuana is then stored in a vault, which can store up to 15,000 kg. “It is on lock-down when it is on site,” said Rifici. It is then “shipped directly to the customer,” to a specific address. There have been concerns raised in the Smiths Falls community about the plant, including if any odour would emanate from the facility, but Rifici stated that no odour would leave the plant, “on pain of losing a licence.” Some doctors are also still hesitant to prescribe medical marijuana because “most physicians don’t want to tell people to smoke something,” though he finds that practitioners in British Columbia are more open to such a prescription than in other provinces. Nurse practitioners are also allowed to dispense the drug, but, so far, nursing groups do not allow it yet. “The physicians are the gatekeepers to this,” said Rifici, with only an estimated seven per cent of physicians having prescribed it, though that number is estimated to go up to 20 per cent. As for patients, they often purchase more than just one strain of marijuana, as different ailments require different strains, to deal with anything from hunger, pain, sleep, depression, to anxiety. But not everybody is rolling their own, so to speak. “People can vaporize it,” said Rifici. “A lot of people don’t realize that.”

While patients have their own health concerns to deal with, even with public health care in Canada, “there is a financial burden for people who need it,” as it is not free, and he would like to see it covered under health insurance plans. On the business side of things, Rifici noted that two-thirds of the hires were local, with a master grower brought in from Maine. One of the unintended consequences of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) of 1993 was that the grower was granted a NAFTA exemption, and was allowed to move right across the border under the horticulturist column. Even using Health Canada guidelines and even NAFTA, he pointed out that “it is because of the courts that this is legal. The government is very hesitant,” about supporting it. On the marketing side, while he is not allowed to sell directly to doctors, only providing educational packages, different strains of marijuana have different street names. Whereas one strain may be known as AK-47 on the street – because it makes a smoker sleepy – Tweed sells it both as AK-47 and as “Hound’s Tooth,” certainly a much softer name. “Our industry is not allowed to advertise because we are a controlled substance,” said Rifici. As with any grown substance, the question came up about if the product was organic – which it is, for the most part. “They are organic,” he said. “We do not use any pesticides. The manufacturing is organic except that we do not use organic fertilizer.” Also, because the marijuana has to be dried, “it’s not like an apple where you can wash it before you eat it.” In closing, looking about the room, having heard all of the jokes, and thanking the community for its support, he jokingly had to admit that, no, “I have no samples.”

TechnologywiththeHumanTouchǦ CPDMHExpandsTelemedicineProgram Specialists in Carleton Place also see the benefits of telemedicine as they can connect with patients in other areas such as Barry’s Bay and Deep River.

More patients will now be able to meet with specialists in other places, all without having to leave their home community. Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital (CPDMH) is expanding its Telemedicine program, connecting patients and providers using two-way, secure videoconferencing powered by OTN.

A telemedicine appointment is just like a regular appointment, only the health care provider is on a monitor and uses tele-diagnostic equipment to hear heart and breath sounds and a special camera to provide close-up images – all as if he were sitting in the same room.

In the past four years, the number of telemedicine visits at CPDMH has increased by 300 per cent, with more than 1,600 events this past year. Patients can now access more than 20 different consultants and an additional room is being dedicated to the service.

It doesn’t make sense for patients to travel so far when we can link them to the specialists right here at the hospital.

CPDMH also uses OTN to connect staff and physicians to e-learning opportunities. Weekly and monthly rounds, as well as a variety of education sessions, are offered to staff and physicians. They also attend virtual regional and provincial meetings, saving time and travel costs. CPDMH is proud of this valued partnership with OTN that brings care closer to home.

“My day is never dull,” notes Denise Davies, a Registered Nurse and CPDMH’s Telemedicine Co-ordinator. “We connect patients for a variety of appointments including dermatology, pain management classes, and even pre-admission appointments for surgery at The Ottawa Hospital. It just doesn’t make sense for patients to travel so far when we can link them to the specialists right here at the hospital.”

The benefits are clear. Patients have easier access to care, usually with a shorter wait time. They save time and the added stress and cost of travel.

BIRTHDAY

CARD OF THANKS

Wyatt Caya is pleased to announce the upcoming wedding of his parents Robert Caya to Danielle Ellis, daughter of Merv and Doris Ellis. Ceremony will take place July 5, 2014 in Jasper at Doris and Merv’s home. Reception to follow at the Smiths Falls Curling Club.

Jenny was born in Liverpool, England, April 6, 1933. She was the daughter of Harold McKellen Wild and Elsie Harriet Wild (nee Richards). Jenny graduated from St. Thomas’s Hospital as an esteemed Nightingale Nurse. She came to Canada in 1957 for a one year contract at Women’s College Hospital, Toronto and in Athabaska, Alberta. Jenny met her first husband, Harold Duncan Plunkett, in Toronto and started her life in Canada. She was a devoted mother to her 3 children. She was a terrible cook but an amazing baker. Jenny was always professional when it came to nursing as she was an extremely hospitable, warm, generous and caring human being. She had a long nursing career at the Perth & Smiths Falls District Hospital. She loved to have fun and enjoyed her gin and tonics immensely. As a Gran, ice cream and cake were always on the menu for breakfast. She will be sorely missed by her 3 children Ruth Moore (Douglas) of Kingston; Rosamund Witchel (Robert) of Toronto; Richard Plunkett (Pauline Smith) of Wilton; step-daughter Loreen Tuepah (Barry) of Kingston; and her sister, Caroline Durling (Brian) of Dondas, France. Jenny was a devoted Gran to her grandchildren Miranda (Moore) and Duncan (Witchel). She will be missed by her adored sisters-in-law, Bette Ramsey, Jacqui Byrnell and many nieces and nephews in Canada, the U.S., and England. Jenny always loved an adventure. She travelled immensely and in later years, when she could not travel herself due to the MS that afflicted her, Jenny loved listening to the journeys of her children, friends and caregivers. Jenny was predeceased by her first husband, Harold Duncan Plunkett in 1978. She married Harry Harris, our dear Grumpy, in 1991 and they had 12 wonderful years together until his death in 2003. Jenny was predeceased by her dear grandson, Pip, earlier that same year. Jenny, you were our mother, our friend and the sunshine in our lives. Peace be with you. A special thank you to Dr. Kennedy and the wonderful staff at Arbour Heights, Kingston for their excellent and compassionate care. Donations can be made in Jenny’s name to the Philip Witchel Endowment Fund, SickKids Foundation, 525 University Avenue, 14th Floor, Toronto, ON M5G 2L3. A Celebration of Life for Jenny will be held at a later date. Online condolences please go to www.tompkinsfuneralhome.ca.

LEE, Sharon (nee Vaughan) – In loving memory of a special wife, mother and grandmother who passed away March 15, 2001. They say there is a reason They say that time will heal But neither time nor reason will change the way we feel For no one knows the heartache That lies behind our smiles No one knows how many times We have broken down and cried We want to tell you something So there won’t be any doubt You are so wonderful to think about But so hard to be without. Forever Loved Ernie, Christine, Annette, Michelle and families

“WE REMEMBER”

BILOW, Thomas – In loving memory of my soulmate who passed away on his birthday 4 years ago, March 15. A year ago the Angels gathered near your bed so very close to you. They knew the pain and suffering that you were going through. We thought about so many things, as we held tightly to your hand. Oh, how we wished that you were strong and happy once again. But your eyes were looking homeward to that place beyond the sky. Where Jesus held His outstretched arms, it was time to say goodbye. We struggled with our selfish thoughts, for we wanted you to stay. So we could walk and talk again, like we did – just yesterday. But Jesus knew the answer, and we knew He loved you so. So we gave to you life’s greatest git, the gift of letting go. Love and miss you always Your loving wife Shirley (Butch)

MARCH

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”

THE EMC - 38 - Thursday, March 13, 2014

In loving memory of a dear father, grandfather, who was taken from us March 15, 2010. It’s hard to believe four years has passed. We lost a father and grandfather with a heart of gold, How much we miss him can never be told. He shared our troubles And helped us along, If we follow his footsteps, We will never go wrong. What he suffered he told but few, He did not deserve What he went through. Tired and weary he made no fuss, But tried so hard to stay with us. We prayed for a miracle all in vain, That God would make you well again. But God knew best, we had to part, It eased your pain but broke our hearts. We cannot bring the old days back When we were all together. The family chain is broken now, But memories live forever. He was a father so very rare, Content in his home and always there, On earth he toiled, in heaven he rests, God bless you, Dad You were one of the best. So if roses grow in heaven God, Please pick a bunch for us, And place them in Dad’s arms, And tell him they’re from us. And when he turns and smiles, Place a kiss upon his cheek, And hold him for awhile. P.S. Happy Birthday Dad Love you always and forever in our hearts Terry, Debbie, Brenda, Cathy, Charles and grandchildren XOXO
