EMC News – Five out of seven politicians in Carleton Place heard both sides of the debate regarding fluoridation in drinking water last Tuesday night, June 4. Due to previous commitments, Coun. Gary Strike and deputy mayor Ed Sonnenburg were unable to attend the packed gathering. Relocated to the upstairs auditorium inside the town hall, the town’s physical environment committee meeting included the information-only session. A decision by council to move forward with a plebiscite (referendum) will be determined in the future. The next municipal election is Oct. 27, 2014. “Should the committee determine to move forward with a plebiscite, it would need to be determined no later than April 2014,” said Coun. Jerry Flynn who chaired the meeting. On the other hand, the establishment of a bylaw can discontinue fluoridation. “To say this is a contentious issue would be a major understatement,” said Flynn. “Many communities over the years have been in the same position as Carleton Place right now, seeking to make an informed decision as to whether or not to continue the practice of adding fluoride to water.” Carleton Place has fluoridated its water supply since 1966. The featured speakers at last week’s nearly three-hour ses-

Fleming, president of Canadians Opposed to Fluoridation; and Sheldon Thomas, retired Manager of Water Distribution for the City of Hamilton. “This is such a complex topic,” said Stewart, “and I think decisions shouldn’t be taken lightly, but I think we should consider all of the issues.” She focused on four main questions. Is the dental health of residents improved by adding fluoride to the drinking water at recommended levels? Who benefits? Is it cost-effective? Does it cause any problems to the residents, the water system or the ecosystem? Dental health is important for a number of reasons: avoid pain and discomfort (cavities); avoid loss of teeth; self-esteem; access to employment opportunities; healthy nutrition; less risk of chronic diseases (lung infections, diabetes, heart disease, preterm birth, etc.). “Dental health is absolutely essential for our overall health,” said Stewart. A few individuals held up signs that read “Not True,” a practice that was ceased by the chair. As a physician, she is a scientist, a researcher. Fluoride is in the water, air and soil, Stewart explained. See DEBATE page A/CP2

ADHS students get the Oscar experience at CAPPIE gala By KELLY KENT kkent@perfprint.ca

EMC News – Nine students from Almonte District High School got a taste of the celebrity life at this year’s CAPPIE award ceremony at the National Arts Centre. The students, who were each nominated for an award, attended the Oscars-like event, which celebrates high school theatre, in May. The CAPPIES is a program that was adopted by Ottawa

eight years ago. Students become critics and write reviews of high school productions, which are then published in a supporting newspaper; in this case, the Ottawa Citizen. The students attend plays and write critiques throughout the year and then have a voting day. Here, the critics vote for their favourite in a variety of categories like favourite actress and actor, but that also include favourites backstage, like the tech crew. The top five favourites from

each category are nominated for an award at the CAPPIE ceremony, which was hosted this year by Mauler and Rush from the radio station Hot 89.9. Several schools in Ottawa participate, but Jennifer Sheffield, show director and CAPPIES advisor for ADHS, said she had to pull some strings to get Almonte involved, since it is difficult for Ottawa students to travel to the town to critique a play. This year ADHS’s theatre

show was ‘Blithe Spirit’ by Noel Coward. Nine students were nominated for five CAPPIES: Amanda Reside for lead actress in a play; Val Goodman for comic actress in a play; Maddie Nolan and Alyssa Stowe for lighting; Morgan Jefferies, Chelsea Arden, Tia Kleiboer and Allison Toshack for props; and Kathryn Hallett for photography. Kathryn Hallett won the CAPPIE award for photography, which Sheffield says was

“very exciting for us.” Sheffield says the CAPPIE awards are special because, before them, there was really no way to celebrate students who participate in the arts. “We have academic banquets that recognize academic achievements and athletic banquets that recognize athletic achievements, but we didn’t have anything to recognize artistic achievements,” she said. “But now we can celebrate these students with a big gala. There’s even a red carpet.”

EMC News – Insp. Gerry Salisbury isn’t going anywhere, anytime soon – but when he does, a plan is in place to find his replacement. And it will be civilians who will make the final decision on who will fill his shoes. “It is not going to be an OPP selection,â€? said OPP Chief Superintendant Gary Couture during a presentation to the Lanark County association of police services boards (PSB) quarterly meeting in the Mississippi Mills town council chambers on Wednesday, June 5. Couture stressed that while Salisbury has been on the job at the Perth headquarters for about 16 years, it is always good to be prepared, since the commander’s job is “probably the most personal piece in policing you‌the individual who will deliver the service to your community.â€? Calling it a “very detailed process,â€? he promised that “we will select a person who fits your needs.â€? Once Salisbury decides to retire, or is reassigned, “I, or Chris, (OPP Superintendant Chris Lungstrass) will come to Derek Love,â€? the chair of the county PSB, “and say, ‘We need to start the selection process. We will initiate the contact.â€? The individual boards will be contacted about the change, even Drummond/North Elmsley Township, which does not have a PSB. It has to be decided whether each board will select one member to represent it on the selection committee, or if a more generalized form of representation from all over the county will be used, but civilian PSB members will make up the majority of the selection committee regardless. “We want to make sure that you make the selection,â€? said Couture. “I leave it up to you,â€? he added as to how many representatives are sent, if each board sends one representative, or not. Whatever is decided though, “we will work with it. I can’t dictate a direction to you. But we will accommodate your decision.â€? But Couture did stress that a smaller committee might make a candidate feel more at ease. “It is difficult to tell a candidate to come and sit in front of 10 people,â€? said Couture. “It is challenging to sit and answer questions.â€?

candidate is shortlisted, they may be asked to provide a shortened resume. “We will talk with you,” said Couture. “We will come to a general consensus as to who you want. We have to come to a unanimous decision… (since) that is your local leader for the next several years.” “Gerry has been here for a long time,” said OPP Superintendant Chris Lungstrass. “But people come and people go…you are distinct in that you have had the same commander for such a long time. There will come a day when he move on for one reason or another. You need to get to who works best for you and works best with you.” Lungstrass said that every portion of the OPP service is unique. He has seen the growing pains experienced by the OPP in the Upper Ottawa Valley, where the Pembroke police service is being merged into the larger force. While the Perth Police Service was, essentially, merged with the county OPP here, “Perth wasn’t huge in terms of numbers,” so the transition was a bit smoother, said Lungstrass.

But in order to find the right person, Lungstrass stressed that he needed to hear from the PSB members. “If there is some burning issue that you want answered right out of the gate, let us know,” he said. Maureen Towaij of the Tay Valley Township PSB said that she favoured a smaller group meeting on the selection committee. She also expressed her concern that there may be candidates that were more “old style leaders,” who expound the philosophy that “do it my way, or else,” versus newer officers who are more collaborative, “a leader who is in touch with the younger work force,” she said. “They are very progressive,” said Couture of the OPP’s inspector and staff sergeant class. “They are not old school. The old school approach is long gone. Not to say that it does not still exist…(but) that will come

He was told just the week before that he is now the most senior detachment commander in the province. “I will commit to you that I will give a lot of lead time,” said Salisbury, before his replacement needs to be picked.

Relay for Life numbers down in Smiths Falls; up in Mississippi Mills By LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com

EMC News – The numbers are in – and they’re down significantly from last year, but overall, it was still a successful Relay for Life. The two events in Smiths Falls and Mississippi Mills raised a combined total of $195,000 after the two events on Friday, June 7. “We had two great events on Friday night with one more to go,� said Amanda Gifford, fundraising coordinator for the Canadian Cancer Society in Lanark, Leeds and Grenville. Gifford said she didn’t have a goal

in mind for the new location for the Smiths Falls event, which left its old home in Lombardy this year for its new location at Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute. “We heard a lot of positive feedback about the new location. It’s more of a close-knit community type of atmosphere and they didn’t have to walk on a muddy track,� she said. Two of the 27 teams registered for the Smiths Falls event didn’t show due to weather or other commitments with family, Gifford said, but overall, she was happy with the response. “For a brand new venue, it went

well,� she said. Last year, this relay event raised $149,000 in Lombardy. In Almonte, 34 teams raised $117,000 this year, bettering last year’s total by $6,000. Lanark Leeds and Grenville will host the fourth event on Friday night at Row’s Corners in Brockville. St. John Catholic High School in Perth held a successful event late in May with more than $50,000 raised. “It’s never too late to make a donation to Relay for Life,� Gifford said. “People can donate anytime online.� Trackside In Smiths Falls, rain drizzled but

and big glasses. The parade of survivors circled the track to start the celebration and once around, other participants fell in behind on the second lap. “It’s something that we’ve been doing since 2001,â€? said Jan Holland of the Bay Buds team. “We said we were going to quit this year, but we decided to keep going because we were close to $50,000.â€? This year, their $5,800 brought the team from the Elgin/Seeley’s Bay area to $52,000. “We’re getting older now‌ it’s hard to keep the interest, but these guys have been awesome. Now we have survivors on the team.â€?

spirits were high as the track was lined with participants for the overnight, 12-hour event that kicked off at 7 p.m. Under the big tent in the Fight Back Zone, Norene Allan and Jan Hopkins, both long-time volunteers were kept busy and dry. “We have a silent auction here, information booths, and you can even get your picture taken,� said Allan, as she hopped up behind a cardboard cutout of a groovy couple and popped her face through one of the holes. Groovin’ for a Cure was the theme of this year’s event where participants dressed in their tie-dyed outfits – from tents to T-shirts – beads

Upper Canada School Board receives governance budget report EMC News – The Upper Canada District School Board’s (UCDSB) Committee of the Whole received the proposed governance budget report for 2013-14 last week. This budget provides funding for the honorarium and activities of the board’s trustees. This budget line also funds the professional development for the trustee liaison officer. Here are key points from the report:

the trustees in fulfillment of their legislative obligations; increase public confidence in public education; and ensure the resources are allocated responsibly. The proposed budget features a number of cost savings compared to the 2012-13 school term including: • 40 per cent reduction ($3,626.60) in meal costs for board meetings; • Over $20,000 saved in teleconference calls; and Trustees • $29,326 saved in webThe trustee’s budget for casting of board meetings. 2013-14 is forecast to be $424,517.

Parent messaging system update The board received an update on the information technology department’s project to introduce a more effective parent messaging system. The goal is to provide school staff with the ability to broadcast messages via email, SMS and voice to all parents or subsets of parents (school, family of school or class). As well, the system will allow: • Parents to update personal contact information and preferences through a self-service web interface; • Parent contact information to be synchronized between messaging system and authoritative data sources (e.g. PowerSchool – single authoritative source of student and parent information); and • The interface to form the foundation for all parentfacing, web-based services offered by the UCDSB now

and in the future (e.g. online registration, safe arrival, ecommerce, and other service requests). The plan is to have the news system fully operational by June 2014. Funding employee future benefits liability The board received a report tonight from the business department outlining that, for the board to be in the financial position to pay future benefits (retirement gratuities – $36.9 million, post-retirement benefits – $0.26 million, and Workplace Safety & Insurance – $2.3 million),

it would need to begin setting aside millions of dollars for many years, beginning with approximately $4.5 million in 2013-14. The report further identified that over the next nine years the board would need to accumulate $18 million for that purpose. As well, this money would be funds normally used to fund classroom activities. Changes introduced by the Ministry of Education regarding budget compliance have caused this issue for the board. Committee of the Whole recommended that the Upper Canada District School Board authorize the chair and

director to lobby forcefully to highlight the ability of the board to be compliant in the future retirement gratuity amortization schedule without detracting from funds for student needs. Submitted by the Upper Canada District School Board.

The tangible benefits of financial advice Manage Your Money

It seems obvious that the best way to achieve your financial and retirement goals is having access to sound financial advice grounded in a comprehensive financial plan. Among other things, financially advised households are twice as likely to save for retirement at all ages; have significantly higher levels of investable assets at all ages; improve their regular saving for retirement at all income levels; rate themselves as more financially knowledgeable; and are more comfortable making the financial decisions they need to make to plan for their future.* Recent research* on the financial situation of Canadians, our savings and investment behavior, and our attitudes toward retirement and savings advice has demonstrated the significant value of delivering financial advice to the public, at all income and asset levels: • Advice has a positive and significant impact on financial assets. • Advisors perform tasks vital in the financial lives of their clients including improved financial literacy, developing a culture of savings and investment, developing and executing a financial plan, selecting appropriate financial vehicles and products and improving investment decision-making. • Advice positively impacts retirement readiness.

• Canadians trust their advisors, feel positive toward them, and feel more confident they will have enough money to retire comfortably. A comprehensive financial plan should include investment planning, cash flow planning, education planning, estate planning, insurance planning, retirement planning, and income tax planning – and here’s the key – to be successful, your plan must be tailored to you. It makes sense to seek the advice of a financial advisor who will take you through this six-step planning process: 1. Goal setting – to define and prioritize your goals and concerns. 2. Data gathering – gathering all the pertinent financial information to understand your current financial situation. 3. Financial analysis – analysing the data to determine whether you are on track to achieve your financial life goals, and to identify alternative strategies to achieve those goals. This includes a review of how to reduce your taxes; whether you’ll have enough income to cover your retirement expenses; and strategies for protecting your family and income should you become disabled or die unexpectedly.

4. Plan formulation and recommendations – developing a written financial plan which contains recommendations and an action plan for achieving your financial goals and improving your overall financial life. 5. Plan implementation – taking action to implement the solutions that have been agreed upon. 6. Monitoring and plan review – financial planning is not a one time event. You should review your plan regularly, ideally at least annually or as major life events occur. These six straightforward steps are a great start on building your personal financial plan. Be sure you get the advice you need by talking to a financial advisor with the team, qualifications and tools you can count on. * IFIC Value of Advice Report 2012.

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

Students suffer from backwards Conservative priorities DEAR EDITOR: Why has the federal government reduced the number of student summer jobs it sponsors when the youth job market still has not recovered from the recession? Under the Conservative government, the number of student summer jobs has been cut by tens of thousands since 2006. Fewer students are getting help to create a summer job where they can earn their first work experience and money to pay for their education. This cut couldn’t have come at a worse time. Youth unemployment is double the national rate and there are 231,000 fewer youth jobs in Canada since the recession. It’s a tough economy these days for our young people. Bizarrely, instead of investing in our youth by creating student summer jobs, the Conservatives chose to spend millions of taxpayer dollars on trying to snow job Canadians with their shameless self-

promoting commercials. Every time one of these brutal Harper ads interrupts your NHL playoff game, know that the $95,000 cost of it could have paid for 32 student summer jobs! Or in other words, for everyone second these ads are on the air, another unemployed young Canadian could have had a job, but is going without. It’s a travesty. The government’s priorities seem to have been set in a bubble, completely walled off from the reality that Canadian families are facing. That’s not good enough. We should be doing more to help youth until their job market recovers, not less. Rodger Cuzner, MP Liberal Party of Canada Human Resources and Skills Development Critic

COMMENTARY Celebrating 40 years of mentorship

EMC Editorial – There are some organizations that continue to enrich and make positive contributions to the communities in which they serve, and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lanark County is one of them. While Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada marks a milestone 100th anniversary in 2013, locally, BBBS of Lanark County is marking an incredible 40 years serving children through mentoring programs. Since its inception in 1973, the organization has been able to make positive changes in the lives of children and statistics show that those who have been Little Brothers or Little Sisters have gone on to graduate from high school at a rate of 20 per cent higher than the national average. Presently, BBBS of Lanark County serves more than 400 children throughout the county, and have helped them boost self-esteem and social skills through mentorship. In fact, 78 per cent of Little Brothers or Little Sisters that came from a social assistance background don’t need to rely on this form of income any longer. That’s proof of the strides BBBS of Lanark County is making. To help BBBS of Lanark County celebrate their 40th anniversary, consider providing photos for or purchasing a historical scrapbook, that will soon be available throughout the area. The book will chronicle the organization’s journey. Then on Sept. 14, join them as they host their Anniversary Dinner at the Smiths Falls Civitan Club and celebrate past, present and future successes. Congratulations on your 40th anniversary!

The arrival of an ice box was like Christmas time EMC Lifestyle – Until that fateful day in the middle of summer, Mother had no choice but to keep the perishables on a swinging shelf in the dugout under the house. It was a dank and frightening place, and could only be entered from the outside...there was no trap-door in the kitchen like Aunt Bertha had on the next farm. Two big doors tilted against the house, and they had to be lifted to gain entry. It was a place I hated with a passion, and Mother too never quite got used to putting butter and milk on the swinging shelf. Blocks of ice were put in big tubs down in the dugout in the hope that what Mother put down there would be kept chilled enough that we all wouldn’t die from food poisoning. Of course when the ice melted, the big tubs had to be hauled up and emptied a job for my big strapping brothers. But it was Grandfather who changed all that one day when he came out from Ottawa and ordered Father to hitch up the wagon and head into Renfrew. Of course, Grandfather had no intention of riding all the way into Renfrew sitting on a rickety seat on a wagon. He drove ahead in his rumble seat car and

told Father where to meet him. Everett went with Father to help. The purpose of his trip into town was to buy Mother a brand new Barnett ice box! “Uncivilized! That’s what it is!” he said time and again on his regular visits to the farm, and when one of us kids was sent down into the dug-out to bring up milk or butter, or anything else that Mother hoped would keep fresh long enough so that we could eat it. We always had had an ice house, and it was always full of blocks of ice, but never until that wonderful day, did we have an ice box to put the blocks in! Mother spent the entire morning trying to come up with a decent place to put the ice box in the kitchen. It had to be well away from the Findlay Oval, of course. And it couldn’t sit in the window looking out into the grape arbour... that’s where the old pine table sat and where we had our meals. Finally, without even knowing what it would look like, or what size it was, Mother decided it would go catty corner next to the little room off the kitchen that served as Mother and Father’s bedroom.

the entire corner. For reasons unknown to me at the time, Mother made all of us change from play clothes into our next-toSunday best…was it because we were getting an ice box? Or was it because Grandfather would be there for a visit? At any rate, we were spit-clean when Grandfather drove back into the yard, and said the new ice box would be here as soon as Father could get back from Renfrew. Mother in a clean Dan River dress and a fresh white apron, sat on the back stoop waiting for its arrival, and Audrey and I perched on the pump stoop. Grandfather brought out a kitchen chair to the yard. He wouldn’t sit on anything that wasn’t spotlessly clean in case he got a mark on his white flannel pants!

was like we were waiting for the Queen to arrive! And then we saw the wagon round the corner at the far end of the lane, and as it got closer we could see Everett standing with his arms wrapped around what liked like a casket standing on its end. Father pulled the wagon up close to the kitchen door. “My oh my,” Mother said, not even waiting until it was loaded off onto the ground, she leaned into the wagon and rubbed her hands all over the new ice box like it was made of gold! It took the three brothers and Father to lift it off the wagon, with Grandfather telling them to be careful and not scratch it. It was shiny wood, the colour of caramel candy, with silver handles, and I thought was grand enough that it could easily have sat in the parlour. Without even being told, Everett tore to the ice house, and using the big black iron tongs, hauled a block of ice into the house. It was beastly hot in the kitchen with the Findlay Oval pumping out heat, and I secretly wondered if the ice box would cool off the whole house.

in the block of ice. Audrey and I were sent down to the dugout for all the perishables, and Mother arranged it all in the ice box like she was laying out blocks for a quilt. Grandfather had thought of everything. While in Renfrew he bought an exact duplicate of our white granite dish pan, and he slid it under the ice box to catch the drip. We sat around the ice box on kitchen chairs, as if waiting for it to tell us something. It sure looked mighty nice in the corner, and I could tell Mother was as proud as if someone had bought her a new car! What a change the new ice box brought to our old log house. Now we had it as well as a telephone, thanks to Uncle Lou. Emerson wondered what we had to do to get running water, and I longed for the day we could just push up a switch and a light would go on just like at my little friend Joyce’s house. Sadly, water from a tap, and light from a bulb were not to be. Both would have to wait until the day we left the farm many years away.

No new native rights granted under draft land claim agreement: Potts By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

EMC News – Do eastern Ontario’s Algonquins have rights, or do they have privileges, under their land claim agreement in principle (AIP)? Well, if you’re Lanark-FrontenacLennox and Addington MPP Randy Hillier, you believe that the document gives the Algonquins special privileges. Picking up on a point made during the forum on the preliminary draft agreement in principle at the Perth Civitan Club hall on June 3, that the document would not grant the Algoquins new rights, Hillier said that “I think we need to speak honestly. Rights are things that are shared by all. If they are not shared by all, they are privileges.” However, if you are Bob Potts, principal negotiator and senior legal counsel for the Algonquins of Ontario, their rights are their rights. “The privileges you refer to are not privileges,” said Potts. “They are not privileges, they are rights,” enshrined by the Supreme Court of Canada. “They are what the existing law says,” added Potts, though he admitted that “we have unique relations with the government, but we are not separate.” Hillier, however, respectfully disagreed. “We are all in this together,” said Hillier. “We all have shared responsibilities.” “We’re not going to do it in isola-

“A lot of things in this AIP are solid…and moving in the right direction,” said Hillier, a long-time proponent of land rights. He applauded open forums, which give “a good, frank, and honest discussion (which) allows for better outcomes.” Citing constituent concerns, Hillier also asked Potts “will this agreement hold up? Will it be respected? Will it mitigate problems or will it exacerbate those problems? (I) fear that this will be an ongoing process…that will leave them (municipalities) holding the bag on enforcement.” Potts however was adamant that the AIP “will release government of any further obligations of land or money.” As for the strength of any final agreement to stand up in a court of law, “once it is in legislation,” since it must be passed by both the House of Commons, Queen’s Park, and an Algonquin referendum, “it is right up there with the constitution,” and cannot be arbitrarily changed even by a bill passed by parliament. Looking out at the municipal representatives from North Frontenac, Lanark Highlands Township, Tay Valley Township, and elsewhere, assembled before him, Potts pointed and said, “we will need to talk with you.” Before Hillier and Potts’ spirited but cordial debate, Potts assured the audience that the agreement, and the talking, was far from over. “We are not presuming to have the monopoly on knowledge,” said Potts.

“We do not have all of the answers. If you know how to build a better mouse trap, we’d love to hear it. If it doesn’t get resolved now, it will get resolved some day.â€? He said that not having an agreement would negatively affect everyone, not just the Algonquins. “It is an impediment to development,â€? said Potts. With an agreement in place, “that can’t help but aid the economy,â€? as one can witness with the development at the old Rockcliffe air base now proceeding as just one example, and there is Algonquin involvement in the new Lansdowne Park development in Ottawa, and along the Rideau Canal. “The Valley has had some economic challenges,â€? said Potts. As an added bonus, “through a treaty‌one of the most important aspects is reconciliation.â€?

The issue should have been dealt with centuries ago, and at the beginning, the Europeans did in fact accept the first Algonquin petition for redress in 1772 seriously. “It was received by the government of the day with great respect,� said Potts. “There were a series of (British) governors who wanted to participate in this process,� but by the time they were able to act, they were sent off back home to Great Britain, or elsewhere in the British Empire, a new governor would travel across the Atlantic Ocean, and the process would start all over again. “The Algonquins were in charge of this area for a long time,� said Potts, pointing out that they were even collecting tolls for people to sail up the Ottawa River in the 19th century. Potts stressed that this AIP was different than anything that came before it for many reasons.

“This is a preliminary draft,� he said. “It has never been done before. They (land claim agreements) have been simply agreements between partners and then put out to the public.� With this AIP however, public consultation across the province, as far away as Toronto and northern Ontario, is seeking feedback, “to put that feedback into the agreement where necessary.� In fact, members of the team will be going out to cottage country this summer to speak to cottage associations about the AIP. “Nobody, nobody will be displaced from their property,� said Potts. “Nobody is going to be expropriated.� The deal involves the gradual transfer, over a decade or so, of not less than 117,500 acres, and $300 million. The land transfer involves about 200 parcels of land. The money will be put into a tax free account, with an Algonquin corporation set up

which will determine where and when to invest the money. “Our objective is not to spend the principle,â€? said Potts. “It will not be raped and pillaged‌it will be for the benefit of the Algonquins.â€? While the process has been centuries in the making, this latest stretch began in 1991 and “people have asked me ‘Why haven’t we been consulted on this five years ago?’ We can’t negotiate in public. I don’t want that (process) reported in the press. I have negotiated thousands of agreements. I have never negotiated one through the press.â€? Even negotiating amongst people who mutually admire and respect each other can have its onerous phases, and he has not hesitated from telling one of his co-negotiators “in personal terms,â€? what he really thinks of their ideas. “There is no more complex negotiation in Canada than this

one,� he said. “We’re looking at a process that will take another 15 years to complete.� He added that he hoped that some manner of Algonquin referendum would be held by year’s end, and that while some non-natives might not be happy with the agreement, with some issues such as hunt camps

and snowmobile trails still to be discussed, Algonquins too are not entirely pleased with the deal. Walking away from the public announcement of the deal on Dec. 13, 2012, “we didn’t walk out giddily happy,� he said. “We’ve all lived here. We all live here now. We have to learn how to live together.�

Pick up your rain barrels in Westport this Saturday Church on Bedford St. near Concession (Westport). No household limits and no residency requirements are imposed... it’s an ideal time to order one for home but perhaps more importantly, one for the cottage too. Rain barrels effectively and safely reduce the amount of water running directly into your local watercourse or lake (or your storm sewer in the city); they encourage

infiltration of precipitation on your property; and they provide a ready, inexpensive source of excellent water for the garden all summer long. Each barrel comes fully equipped with a leaf and mosquito filter, an overflow adaptor (permitting multiple barrels to be connected in series), 1.2 metres of overflow hose and spigot that attaches directly to a garden hose.

Lyons Goodfellow

Local childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s charity celebrates 40 years in Lanark County EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Started in 1973, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lanark County has spent the last 40 years serving children through a variety of mentoring programs. A celebratory dinner is being planned for Sept. 14 to celebrate the monumental occasion. The local childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s charity has had a real impact on children throughout the County. Children who have been in mentoring programs see real, positive change. Little Brothers and Little Sisters go on to graduate from high school at a rate of 20 per cent higher than the national average. Seventy-eight per cent of Littles who came from a social assistance background no longer rely on this form of income and a disproportionately high number of former Littles graduate from college or university compared to others in their age group. Currently, more than 400 children are involved in the agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s programs. At a recent celebration, Little Brother Jason spoke about the impact his Big Brother has had on his life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the time Randy and I have been paired Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve dramatically changed for the better in so many ways. For one, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely made me think about things more,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My self-esteem and social life have had a huge boost and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned so many life lessons from the experiences with Randy. I know now that there is much more to life that I thought there was before meeting him.â&#x20AC;? To celebrate this special anniversary the agency is planning an Anniver-

sary Dinner on Sept. 14 at the Smiths Falls Civitan Club. There will be special presentations, live music and a chance for the community to pause and celebrate the mentoring that has happened and continues to happen throughout the county. Tickets are $25 per person and must be purchased in advance through the office. Big Brothers Big Sisters is trying to reach out to those that have been involved in the agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great history and would welcome everyone to reconnect through this special event. Only 150 tickets are available and are on a first come first served basis. The agency is also creating a historical scrapbook, which is available for purchase for $25. Carole Marriner, a local Creative Memories consultant, created the memory book and put together an amazing selection of old and new photos for this book.

A summer picnic will be held with families and children supported by the agency. Press releases about Bigs and Littles have been submitted each month, showcasing the good work of the agency and the strong mentoring programs it runs. Big Brothers Big Sisters started in

613-283-0570, email jennifer.miller@bigbrothersbigsisters.ca or drop by the office at 18 William St. E. in Smiths Falls. More mentors are needed to help serve the dozens of children waiting for help. Please consider volunteering your time today.

Mica Days brings dinner, theatre with a difference of the early miners. End your trip at the minersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bunkhouse to savour a fabulous hot dinner served by Cookie as you enjoy some traditional music by Cratur. This group hails from the heart of the Ottawa Valley and their talented musicianship covers a number of genres with the focus on their Celtic roots. The arrangements stick to traditional Irish, Scottish and Cape Breton fiddle instrumentals. They have been known to throw in a few Valley and Newfoundland tunes as well. Shows are scheduled for Wednesday, July 17, Wednesday, Aug. 14 and Saturday, Oct 12, which is Thanksgiving weekend. Start time in July and Aug. is 7 p.m. and for October the show starts at 6 p.m. As darkness descends, the bunkhouse will be lit

by the glow of traditional mica lanterns and our guests will use the lanterns to make their way back to the parking area at the end of the evening. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(We) just wanted to say what a great night we had,â&#x20AC;? said the Faubert family from Hudson, QC, who attended one of the dinner/ theatres last summer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From Tobi and Alida to all the volunteers who gave their time, the delicious food, and to the band who supplied the entertainment, it really was a wonderful experience.

EMC Events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Heritage Mica Days at Murphys Point Provincial Park brings you dinner/theatre with a difference this summer. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Tunes, Tales and Rusty Relicsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is an original production, written specifically for this annual festival. The production takes place along the Silver Queen Mine trail on three separate occasions in July, August and October and provides a unique cultural experience for both local residents and tourists. Follow Miss Whitfield, our favourite schoolteacher from 1909, and jack-of-all-trades Johnny Russell as they help a park interpreter unearth the artefacts of Murphys Pointâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s past. Farm, mine and sugar bush are brought to life through the stories of these rusty relics. Venture down into the Silver Queen Mine to understand the hardships

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Approximately 1,700 children in the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville will soon be opening envelopes with the latest Fun With Books, titled, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What Is it?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Founder Bernie Boesveld (left) helped by author Jancy Watkins (right) and others packed all the envelopes for volunteers to deliver. Watkins was inspired to write this story about children, because her own two girls, Dana and Rylee, now older, so enjoyed receiving these books and listening to the stories while looking at the illustrations. This is Watkins first published book.

Symon added. The CSW funded project is a video series about the Mississippi River, its importance to our water supply, and how we all can help sustain its health. It is being produced in partnership with MVC, the CSW, Community Stewardship Council of Lanark County and Pinegrove Productions with support from the Ministry of Natural Resources. â&#x20AC;&#x153;CSW is excited to be a leader in this project combining our efforts to create a product that speaks to our efforts and resonates with our stakeholders and those beyond the watershed,â&#x20AC;? says Barbara King, CSW executive director. To put it all in perspective, a simple stewardship activity, tree planting, will be part of the recognition event. Five silver maples will be planted to help

â&#x20AC;&#x153;beef upâ&#x20AC;? a shoreline vegetated buffer started by MVC with the help of Carleton Place High School students. MVC staff will be on hand with trees, tools and advice about native shoreline vegetation in our watershed. All are welcome to attend the event from 10 to 11 a.m. beside the Mississippi River at 400 Lake Avenue West in Carleton Place (beside the boat launch).

CARD OF THANKS The life of Dorothy May (Burke) McDougall was celebrated at O’Dacre Funeral Home, Perth, Ontario. Dorothy went to reunite with her loving husband Edwin (Eddie) James McDougall (1969) on Tuesday, May 21, 2013 at 4:25 p.m., following a massive stroke, May 4, 2013. Dorothy’s family would like to thank our many relatives and friends for being so supportive in many ways at a very sad time. O’Dacre Funeral Home and staff fulfilled every wish we had in a very caring manner and also made the journey to heaven for our dear Mom/friend/Nan easier for her and her family. Reverend Grace Vaters, for your comforting words and spiritual guidance, we thank you. Nan would have been overjoyed to hear the “touching” eulogies given by MacKenzie Whan and Paul Morrow. Nothing in the world could put a sparkle in her eyes and smile on her face than her grandchildren, Kim, Paul and Stephanie, and also her great-grandchildren who were flower bearers, Mackenzie, Connor, Breanna, Jack and Cameron. Mom would have been ever so proud of the pallbearers she chose to carry her to eternal rest, Paul Morrow, Bill Young, Gordie, Lloyd and Keith Burke, Bill Cooper. Thanks also to Doctor Tweedie, for endless years (50+) caring for Mom. Mom/Nan will always be remembered by all who had the pleasure of knowing her or perhaps also was one of her euchre friends. We love you, Mom.

IN MEMORIAM

Clifford Brown August 24, 1934 - June 25, 2003 I thought of you today but that is nothing new I thought about you yesterday and days before that too. I think of you in silence I often speak your name All I have are memories and a picture in a frame Your memory is a keepsake from which I’ll never part God has you in His arms I have you in my heart Loving wife Betty Brown Children, Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren

TAYLOR Shirley Elaine In loving memory of a dear wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother who passed away June 15, 2011. I remember the day I met you. And the day God made you mine, I remember the day God took you, And will till the end of time. And when I’m sad and lonely, And everthing goes wrong, I seem to hear you whisper, “Cheer up and carry on.” Each time I see your picture, You seem to smile and say, “Don’t cry I’m only sleeping, We’ll meet again someday.” Lovelying Remembered Robert and family

IN MEMORIAM

Rodney Brown 1954 - 2012 You can shed tears that he is gone, or you can smile because he lived. You can close your eyes and pray that he’ll come back, or you can open your eyes and see he has left. Your heart can be empty because you can’t see him, or you can be full of the love you shared. You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday or you can be happy for tommorrow because of yesterday. You can remember him and only that he’s gone, or you can cherish his memory and let it live on. You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back, or you can do what he’d want; smile, open your eyes, love and go on. Love All Your Family and Friends MacDONALD – In loving memory of our parents who passed away two years ago. Dad (Cliff) May 13, 2011 and Mom (Pearl) June 17, 2011. We may not have realized when we were younger What wonderful parents we had, But, now we can see all what you have done through the years And that you were a great Mom and Dad. You were always there to remind us that you loved us To comfort, to care, to guide and advise, You taught us to value the love of a family With long lasting, heartwarming ties. You set an example that couldn’t have been better And still is a great help today For the many times when we had to make a decision, We wonder what you would do or say. We miss you both so very much And now more than ever, we know That all along we had the best Mom and Dad And we all love you both so… Always on our minds; Forever in our hearts, Remembered with love xoxoxo Marg & Ron, and family, Lornie & Nancy and family, Floyd and family

GORDON, Rita – In loving memory of a dear Mother, Mother-in-Law, Nanny and Great Nan. June 18, 2001. Our Mother is always with us She’s the whisper of the leaves as we walk down the street She’s the smell of certain foods we remember, flowers we pick, the fragrance of life itself. She’s the cool hand on our brow when we are not feeling well. She’s the breath in the air on a cold winter’s day. She is the sound of the rain that lulls us to sleep, the colours of a rainbow, she is Christmas morning. Our mother lives inside our laughter. She’s the place we came from, our first home, and she’s the map we follow with every step we take. She’s our first love, our first friend, even our first enemy, but nothing on earth can separate us not time, not space, not even death. Love you, Ron and Ruth Gordon, Sherry and Terry Kinch, Paul and Janet Gordon, Randy and Janice Gordon and families

Cooney defended fluoridated water, noting the science is very solid and supporting. “It is critically important to reduce dental disease,” he said. Dental disease is the number one chronic disease among children and adolescents in Canada – five times more common than asthma. It is linked to a number of systematic diseases: cardiovascular disease, obesity and diabetes,

“I am not concerned about this at all, and neither is the Canadian Pediatric Society,” she said. Fluoride is obtained from rocks. It is transported and stored as hydrofluorosilicic acid (HFSA). Stewart said the levels of fluoride in drinking water are carefully monitored. She recently toured the municipality’s water treatment plant. “Carleton Place’s water reports for 2011 and 2012 show all levels of metals and other chemicals are below standards,” she continued. “There are so many safeguards.” HFSA does not cause corrosion of lead in pipes, and its addition to the drinking water does not affect the ecosystem. Stewart spoke to the manufacturers of HFSA and noted they follow extremely rigid rules (how it is prepared). The Ontario Ministry of the Environment licenses municipalities to operate a water plant. Moreover, the 2002 Safe Drinking Water Act makes municipal drinking water system owners accountable for providing safe water to residents. ”Again, there are standards and operational requirements that safeguard drinking water,” said Stewart. As a public health physician, Stewart’s responsibility is to look at the health of the population and identify mechanisms that will make a difference. A number of organizations support water fluoridation: Chief Medical Officer for Ontario; Ontario Association of Local Public Health Agencies; Health Canada and Public Health Agency of Canada; Canadian Dental Association; Canadian Medical Association; Canadian Pediatric Society; Canadian Public Health Association; American Dental Association; US Centres of Disease Control and Prevention; and World

Health Organization. ”Water fluoridation to recommended levels is safe,” said Stewart. “It’s sensible (S), affordable (A), fair (F) and effective (E).” Two sides For 38 years Thomas worked to keep drinking water safe and water pipes in good condition. ”For most of those years I never gave fluoridation a second thought,” he said. “It was just something cities added to the water supply to protect teeth.” These days, Thomas is embarrassed he did not understand enough about the fluoridation in the water he was providing.

”I had a lot of company,” he said. “Until the mid-eighties, most of the scientists at the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regarded fluoridation exactly as I did. They assumed fluoridation had been thoroughly studied by others and it presented no problems.” In 1985 EPA administration tried to force a staff scientist to write it was okay for children to have white spots on their teeth. ”Of course, the white spots are fluorosis, a marker of excessive fluoride intake,” said Thomas. “EPA administration wanted to classify dental fluorosis as a harmless cosmetic condition, trying to See FLUORIDE A/CP18

Fluoride residuals in Carleton Place water are maintained at 0.5 parts per million or milligrams per litre (mg/L). “Fluoride has two benefits,” said Stewart. “When children ingest fluoride, it strengthens the enamel of the adult teeth forming inside the gums. Secondly, for children and adults, saliva bathes teeth with fluoride to repair the enamel damaged by acid from food and drink.” The nice thing about having fluoride in water is that it benefits everybody, Stewart noted. “In Carleton Place young children benefit because it’s hard for them to brush their teeth well,” said Stewart, “and 40 per cent of the residents don’t have any dental insurance.” Therefore, these individuals are not going for the preventive dental care, which is critical for a healthy mouth. Research shows every dollar spent on fluoridation saves $38 in dental care costs. “The lifetime cost is less than a cost of one filling,” said the medical officer of health. The Carleton Place Water Treatment Plant spends $10,000 to $20,000 per year for fluoride. Fluoride added to drinking water at the proper rate is safe and doesn’t cause adverse effects, said Stewart.

for example. “We are not just looking at enamel and took, we are looking at overall health,” said Cooney. In 2006 Health Canada initiated a review of the health effects of exposure to fluoride in drinking water. The process took almost five years. Cooney said an expert panel was put together in 2007 to discuss this topic and to provide recommendations to ensure exposure to fluoride remains below levels that could cause fluorosis (tiny white streaks or specks in the enamel of the tooth) while achieving the public health benefit of preventing dental caries (tooth decay). Based on this review, the proposed guideline for fluoride in drinking water is a Maximum Acceptable Concentration (MAC) of 1.5 (mg/L). “The optimal level of fluoride in the water is 0.7 parts per million, to give the best benefit,” said Cooney. “The range in Ontario is 0.5 to 0.8 parts per million.” “I can tell you fluoride in the water does not cause fluorosis,” he continued. “Health Canada and public health agencies continue to recognize the benefits of community water fluoridation, and supports it as a safe and an effective method to prevent tooth decay. It works!” What would happen to dental health if water fluoridation stops? Studies in Dorval and Dryden showed an estimated 25 to 50 per cent increase in cavities among children, and for adults and seniors, at least 30 per cent more decay. “Infant fluoride intake based on the level of fluoride in water in Carleton Place and in infant formula is within the recommended daily intake levels,” said Stewart. “They can’t get fluorosis.” To get fluorosis a person would need regular and long-term exposure.

No widening exemption to development charges in Carleton Placeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s downtown By TARA GESNER tgesner@perfprint.ca

CARVERâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;SCHOICE BACON

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The developer downtown gets a break, but it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be the ratepayers, it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be the homeowners and it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be the people with children,â&#x20AC;? Sonnenburg pointed out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will have given away the parks, given away the playgrounds and given away all the stuff we wanted to do for this town to a developer so they can make a profit,â&#x20AC;? he continued. Is it councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job to support developers or residents? We need to decide.â&#x20AC;? Mayor Wendy LeBlanc stated the logic behind exempting the downtown area was because councillors campaigned in 2010 on wanting to work to revitalize the downtown core. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We realize the revitalization of the downtown core is contingent on having more people living in the downtown,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, I got thinking about this,â&#x20AC;? the mayor continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thinking about some of the offers that have been made to us, as well as some of the things that are being planned in the downtown.â&#x20AC;? She noted the forthcoming 60-bed retirement home on Laura St. and Crombieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interest in extending the Carleton Place Mews, as well as a full price offer for the land at the former Canadian Tire site. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we were to change this (widen the exemption boundary) from what we already have, is it going to make a difference in whether a person decides to build or not?â&#x20AC;? asked LeBlanc. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From the three examples I just gave, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appear to me. I am willing to leave it just the way it is.â&#x20AC;? Flynn asked for more information regarding the offer on the former

Canadian Tire site. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Expression of interest,â&#x20AC;? corrected LeBlanc. She said the interest came from Bbq Partners Development Ltd., which recently purchased property in Smiths Falls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Who is Bbq?â&#x20AC;? asked Flynn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do you have an address?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell you any more than that,â&#x20AC;? said LeBlanc. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a secret,â&#x20AC;? exclaimed Flynn, who was clearly frustrated. Probert said Knowles had provided council with a 20-page document weeks ago that contained an address and phone number for Bbq. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not misspeaking, am I, Paul?â&#x20AC;? Probert asked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recall,â&#x20AC;? said Knowles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like that information,â&#x20AC;? said Flynn.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;See Paul in his office,â&#x20AC;? said Probert. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No, he can send it by email,â&#x20AC;? said Flynn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do you have classified email?â&#x20AC;? asked Sonnenburg. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Is it a secure line?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll come and get it from you, Paul,â&#x20AC;? exclaimed Flynn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a big problem with this,â&#x20AC;? said Thorbjornsson from the audience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was told that everything I would be doing would be open and transparent. I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an unfair advantage that this group, which may or may not exist, does not need to abide by the same set of rules.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We made a decision with your agreement to operate in an open session, not respond to the other expression of interest and only deal with you,â&#x20AC;? said See CHARGES A/CP10

P I Z Z E R I A Celebrates its 6th Year of Serving the Community! R0012146838_0606

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Is bigger, better? During the policy review committee meeting in Carleton Place on May 28, council discussed a wider exemption to development charges in the downtown area. Coun. Rob Probert chaired the meeting. He explained the municipalityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s development charges bylaw (DCB) imposes fees on new development. The DCB was updated in February this year and comes into effect on June 24. In addition to the downtown core, there are a small number of other exemptions â&#x20AC;&#x201C; institutional properties (schools, hospitals, etc.) and four strategic properties (McArthur Island, former Findlay Foundry, DRS and Wool Growers). â&#x20AC;&#x153;If council wants to consider changes, a public process is required,â&#x20AC;? said Probert. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If not, the existing bylaw remains.â&#x20AC;? Coun. Louis Antonakos declared a conflict of interest regarding the agenda item. The townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief administrative officer (CAO), Paul Knowles presented six different scenarios for councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s consideration. Option one involved staying with the current bylaw, which includes brownfields and/or redevelopment of existing buildings. The second scenario would see the downtown district expanded to include the remainder of the former Canadian Tire property. Option three would take in the transition district, which is adjacent

to downtown. The fourth scenario includes Beckwith and Victoria streets. Too, they are adjacent to downtown. Option five would encompass the Business Improvement Association (BIA) area. The final scenario: walking distance to downtown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I fully believe it is too premature, until we get a good, solid offer on any property, to be changing any of this,â&#x20AC;? said Coun. Gary Strike. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Development fees go to things that are important to the town.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am not in favour of not charging development fees,â&#x20AC;? said deputy mayor Ed Sonnenburg. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can go along with McArthur Island, Leigh Instruments, Lansdowne and the Findlay property. There is a certain amount of logic.â&#x20AC;? Of late, a group, which was led by local developer Volunder (Wally) Thorbjornsson, who attended the May 28 meeting, pitched a major downtown development proposal ($80 million). The Downtown Development Group (DDG) wanted all properties contained in its plan to be exempt from development and building permit fees, as well as all other fees normally charged for similar projects. Some of the proposed undertakings were outside the (exemption) boundary. Sonnenburg stated the town needed to get back the maximum amount of dollars from the former Canadian Tire property. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will not happen by giving away development fees and selling the property at a loss,â&#x20AC;? he continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to talk about fairness,â&#x20AC;? said Strike. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had several developers approach me. They are totally against this.â&#x20AC;?

Hydrants opened by vandals in Carleton Place Police continue to investigate as similar incidents reported in Perth and Smiths Falls tgesner@perfprint.ca

EMC News – “It was a scary thing that happened,” said Carleton Place’s chief administrative officer (CAO), Paul Knowles. “I can’t stress enough the seriousness of the actions.” Speaking to members of council recently, Knowles explained vandals opened fire hydrants in Carleton Place, Perth and Smiths Falls over the weekend of May 25-26. “We are pretty sure it wasn’t one person because of the timing,” he continued. “Some group, maybe.” Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) and Smiths Falls Police are investigating the acts of vandalism. “Two hydrants were opened in

Carleton Place and two or three in Perth,” said Knowles. “Six were opened in Smiths Falls.” The goings-on in Perth occurred on Saturday around 11:30 p.m. Police responded to opened hydrants in Smiths Falls in the region of 12:47 a.m. on Sunday. “We were fairly fortunate in Carleton Place,” said Knowles. “A police officer happened to see the hydrant open and called the fire department. Les (Reynolds, Ocean Wave Fire Company’s fire chief) came out and closed it down. He then found the other one.” The point in time in Carleton Place was 1:30 a.m. on Sunday. “It did not cause a real problem for us,” said Knowles. “However, in Smiths Falls it pretty much drained the water tower’s upper bowl. Alarms rang and staff re-

sponded. When you open six hydrants that is a lot of water.” The municipality situated along the Rideau Canal came close to declaring a boil-water advisory. Water flow from the opened hydrants can reduce the town’s water pressure, which can render fire hoses useless when trying to fight fires. Moreover, streets can become slippery and the visibility of drivers can become impaired. “Police are involved and investigating so hopefully there will be a successful conclusion,” said Knowles. The following Sunday (June 2) in Smiths Falls officers responded to more opened hydrants. Anyway with information regarding these incidents should contact police.

Prepare for teddy bear invasion in Carleton Place next Sunday By TARA GESNER tgesner@perfprint.ca

The hospital’s very own chief of staff (Dr. Marty White) will be in attendance. All games and activities cost one ticket (per game/per visit). Tickets are $1 each and can be purchased at the gate. With the exception of hamburgers (two tickets), all barbecue items cost one ticket. “There is no charge for children to see the doctor or tour the ambulance and fire truck,” said Kenwood. She explained area schools recently received a poster for children in grades 3 and under to take home and colour. A free ticket will be given to all children who bring in their finished poster to the Teddy Bear Picnic. The Navy League Building is located at 137 John St., next to Riverside Park. R0012042768_0516

EMC Events – The teddy bears have their picnic in Carleton Place next Sunday, June 23, as the Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital Auxiliary hosts its sixth annual Teddy Bear Picnic at the Navy League Building. The event runs from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The picnic is a tradition – bringing together kids, teddy bears and parents for a day of health education, fun activities and entertainment. “The picnic is not only a fundraiser but a great way to reach the public,” said Nancy Kenwood, co-chair of the Teddy Bear Picnic committee. She added it’s an excellent opportunity for families to connect with the hospital under

pleasant, fun circumstances. Children get to see the hospital is not always a scary place. Festivities include a barbecue (hamburgers, hot dogs and cold drinks), children’s games and activities (fish pond, cupcake decorating and face painting) and a visit from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) Safety Bear. “Our fish pond has an unusual twist this year,” said Kentwood, “and we will also have gluten-free cupcakes.” Once again, Lanark County Ambulance Service and the Ocean Wave Fire Company will be on site offering informative ambulance and fire truck tours. For sure, the most popular event at the annual picnic is the MASH Tent for sick and broken teddy bears and dolls.

Students at Almonte District High School reach for the top than 20 years ago. To qualify to compete at provincials, a Reach for the Top team must do well enough at the regional level to move on. This year the ADHS team won first place at regionals, and so the students and their coach, Melissa Kerwin, headed to Scarborough and the University of Toronto, where the competition was held. There the team was pitted against teams from 40 other schools, many of them several times larger than ADHS. Kerwin said that many of the teams who competed were from schools of over 1,600 students, whereas ADHS has about 300.

EMC News – Reaching for the top is something five students at Almonte District High School do very well. On Saturday, May 11, ADHS’ Reach for the Top team competed at the provincial level and placed 14th out of 40 Ontario high schools. The team, which this year consists of two Grade 11 students, Madeleine Porier and Finn O’Brien, and three Grade 12 students, Riley Sweeney, Dennis Prokopowich and Mack Chapman, has not qualified to compete at provincials since 1991 – more

“It was really fun,” said Dennis Prokopowich of the experience, “and we got to meet a lot of new people.” Though they were one of the smallest schools at the competition, the team held their own and won five out of their seven games. “The questions were really hard,” said Finn O’Brien. He said many of the questions were about history and a few were pop culture, which the team has knowledge of, but the other schools were quicker to hit their buzzers. “Normally our team will wait for the question to be finished before they answer,” said Kerwin, “but a lot

of the students at provincials would hit their buzzers halfway through a question.” The students practice about once a week, often on their own, by going through older question books from previous competitions. O’Brien says that each team member has their own area of strength: for example, he says Sweeney is good at history, Porier likes biology and he himself knows his religion trivia. The students tend to stay on the team for multiple years, and many of the current members even some Grade 12 students, plan to return next year and hope to do even better.

Carleton Place Council discusses Energy East pipeline and Enerdu Shoppers Drug Mart partners with Real Solutions Discovery By KELLY KENT

project on June 17. Also discussed at the meeting was the proposed Enerdu project. A letter outlining ten areas of concern raised by the town has been drafted in response to Enerdu’s last correspondence. Council has said that if these concerns are not adequately addressed, the Enerdu project will not be approved. Among the town’s main concerns are the heritage impacts the project will have on the community; river aesthetics, Appleton Wetland impacts and property ownership. David Krajaefski of Stantec Consulting gave a presentation on the town’s 10-year recreation master plan, which was started midNovember to assess the town’s recreation needs. The first phase of the project, data collection, has just been finished. Stantec Consulting conducted a variety of surveys and found that Mississippi Mills has as many or more recreational opportunities for residents than the surrounding areas. We have several parks, soccer fields and organized sports, but Krajaefski and his team came to the conclusion that more biking and walking trails are desired. Council will soon determine the next phase of the project.

EMC News – Few of us ever give a second thought to seeing a pharmacy client taking their medication right at the dispensing counter under the supervision of the pharmacist. Chances are they are taking methadone or Suboxone for treatment for drug addiction and like any other patient; they are seeking and taking treatment to battle a disease not unlike cancer or diabetes in its ability to change lives for the worse or even end them. Fortunately for those suffering from addiction, there are caring pharmacists willing to go the extra distance to offer help and hope. Myron Li, owner/pharmacist at the Shoppers Drug Mart in Carleton Place has had continued exposure and experience with methadone maintenance treatment since he graduated in 2009 with his pharmacy degree. There were many patients that he personally witnessed enter the program and achieve positive outcomes. Positive life changes such as substance abstinence, improved lifestyle, improved health, stable jobs, and leaving the program completely clean are not uncommon. Unfortunately, Li has also seen many more patients fail to reach their desired goals. The one common link between those who are not successful in reaching their treatment goals is the gap in providing substance abuse counseling in an open and friendly environment. This is where the new

EMC News – The Mississippi Mills Committee of the Whole meeting held on June 4 dealt with several large topics, including the proposed TransCanada Energy East pipeline, the Enerdu project and the recreation master plan. Alain Parise, a representative from TransCanada attended the meeting to give a presentation on the pipeline, which will run through a part of Mississippi Mills. The Energy East pipeline’s purpose will be to deliver crude oil from western Canada to be processed in eastern Canada in places like Quebec and New Brunswick, thus replacing the imported crude from other countries with Canadian product. The proposed project will build new pipeline in Alberta and Saskatchewan but convert existing gas lines already in Mississippi Mills and beyond to carry the product. Parise said this initiative would include three components. First, the line would have to be isolated from the gas system and facilities, but he stressed that the current gas service would not be interrupted. Second, pump stations would need to be built to pump up to 850,000 barrels of oil

through the system per day. Parise said a pump station might be needed in Mississippi Mills, but it is not yet planned. Third, crews would start work to convert the pipeline. Thousands of digs will be conducted to make sure everything is in working order. Parise said that often workers are hired from local businesses for this, therefore creating jobs in the community. Coun. Shaun McLaughlin raised the question of oil spills: will there be resources in the Ottawa Valley to respond in case of an emergency? Parise said TransCanada has created an emergency response plan to work in collaboration with local emergency responders. Coun. Bernard Cameron was also concerned about potential oil spills, and asked about the spacing of pump stations where the flow of product can be stopped. Parise said that pump stations will be placed along the line every 60 km, but that there will be several shut-off valves in between to stem oil in the case of an emergency; there will be two or three valves in Mississippi Mills alone. The Energy East pipeline project is still in the planning and assessment phase; if approved, construction will not be fully completed until 2018. TransCanada will learn if they are able to move to the next phase of the

EDITORIAL

Flying solo an honourable move EMC Editorial - Nobody wants to be seen as a trained seal. And nobody wants to be told what to say and how to say it by someone half their age. Last week, former Conservative MP Brent Rathgeber burst open wide the increasingly fractious rifts in the federal Tory ranks by leaving his party and sitting as an independent member of the house. The response of the Conservatives to Rathgeber’s departure has been, frankly, audacious. Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s office called on him to resign his EdmontonSt. Albert seat and run for re-election. Harper’s crew surely should have known that this would have flung the door wide open to accusations of hypocrisy, when they welcomed one of the most famous floor-crossers of all time, Vancouver’s David Emerson, elected as a Liberal in January 2006 - and sworn in to Stephen Harper’s first cabinet a month later. During the 2006 election debates, Harper seemed to suggest that he was okay with

an MP breaking away from his or her party and sitting as an independent on a matter of principle. Just last year, according to the Winnipeg Free Press, the Conservatives voted against a New Democratic private members bill which would have required any MP, elected under a party banner, to resign their seat and run for re-election if they wanted to join up with another party. But the bill would have allowed Rathgeber and other MPs to sit as an independent. Rathgeber’s decision to sit as an independent is a principled one, after the Harper government decided to gut his private member’s bill to open up the salaries of federal government employees making more than $188,000. This includes the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. What a gift to CBC opponents, giving them some ammunition, under the guise of transparency. So why is it all right for, say, provinces like Ontario to have its “Sunshine Lists,” showing how people in fields like medicine, policing,

and teaching earn more than $100,000 a year, but when it comes to the federal government - no friend of bureaucrats - suddenly, transparency on the numbers is a no-go area? The amount was raised to $440,000 for full disclosure. Notice how this leaves out, say, members of the senate? Now, we hasten to add that this does not mean that Harper is politically wounded, best left for dead. He’s been in far tighter political spots, like the coalition crisis of late 2008, and he has pulled through. There are still two years to go before the 2015 set-election date, and a cabinet shuffle is in the offing. It offers a chance to clear out some deadwood, and instill cabinet solidarity – and secrecy – by bringing some freewheeling independentminded MPs inside the tent. Those ministerial offices can certainly quieten some backbench

grumbling. You count Harper out at your peril. The year 1996 stands out as a good example for both sides. Liberal MP John Nunziata was kicked out of his caucus for voting against the budget because it did not get rid of the GST. He was re-elected a year later, with an even greater majority than in 1993. Deputy Prime Minister Sheila Copps resigned, because she had pledged to scrap the GST - which, clearly, never happened. She too was re-elected in a quick by-election shortly thereafter. Thereby proving everything, and nothing. The voters, either way, ultimately make the final decision, but in between, while there needs to be party solidarity, there also needs to be a cooling off box - in this case, time sitting as an independent.

COLUMN

Something I need to get off my chest EMC Editorial – It’s one of those precise questions women ask each other. For the last two weeks I’ve been inquiring, what does a mammogram feel like? I had one scheduled for June 7 – my first. Mammography is the process of using lowenergy X-rays to examine the human breast. It is used as a diagnostic and a screening tool. The goal is the early detection of breast cancer. I received a wide range of responses from my girlfriends, and some were out-and-out hilarious. Marie noted it was like getting “them” slammed in a car door. Marianne told me to imagine a car backing over “the twins.” Laurie even practiced, closing the refrigerator door on one of her “girls.” Kirsten didn’t have a problem at all. No pain, just a bit of pressure. On Friday morning I went off to the Queensway-Carleton Hospital with the knowledge I gained. As instructed by the technician who was extremely professional I held my breath and brought my shoulder back and held onto the bar with my hand. Had there been music I most likely would’ve looked like I was doing the robot dance. My mammogram consisted of four images – two views on each breast. I’m not going to lie, it didn’t tickle. On the other hand, it was more uncomfortable and embarrassing than extremely agonizing. The total time of compression for

those four images was about 45 seconds. I can do anything for 45 seconds – esTara Firma pecially if those 45 seconds can greatly influence my future and my quality of life. A small price to pay, right? In 2013, there will be an estimated 23,800 Canadian women diagnosed with breast cancer. It continues to be the most common cancer diagnosis in Canadian women over the age of 20 (one in four), and following lung cancer, it is the second leading cause of cancer deaths. One in 29 Canadian women will die from breast cancer. No matter what your comfort level happens to be, it’s important to remember mammograms do save lives, and I’ve met a few amazing, brave women who agree. Self-examination is also essential, and there is more than one way to check. Do whatever feels comfortable – in the shower, lying down or standing. Above all, just do it – on the same day monthly. Using your three middle fingers, move in small circles from the outside of your breast to the nipple. Cover the whole surface of the breast, and also remember to check the areas above and below the breast, including the armpit. It should be noted breast cancer occurs mainly in women, but men can get it, too. Many people do not realize men have breast tissue.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Carleton Place mayor responds to comments in recent letter to editor to sell municipal property and change the designation of these employment lands (formerly known as industrial lands) to allow a mixed residential and commercial complex. The plan, presented by a local developer, was certainly attractive. However, it would result in the town having very little town-owned land available for industry – a rather peculiar situation, given the fact that we hired an economic development coordinator for the express purpose of creating more, and expanding current, employment-generating businesses. Indeed, there is presently a very good supply of privately-owned land available in Carleton Place for residential/commercial complexes without the town competing with private owners. Mr. Smith’s remarks indicate that, had he been sitting at the council table, he would have deemed it to be in the best interests of the taxpayers of Carleton Place to sell off our only publicly-owned employment lands for residential/commercial use. The third point Mr. Smith cites is a new development on an existing restaurant property on Highway 7. As much as every member of council and staff would like this project to move forward, there exists a legal battle between two adjoining landowners that should be resolved before development proceeds. Mr. Smith’s remarks indicate that, had he been sitting at the council table, he would ignore the advice of the town solicitor to protect the town, and ultimately the taxpayers of the community, by allowing the development to move forward without even understanding the legal risks to the taxpayer.

Mr. Smith’s final point involves a complex proposal to council which encompassed, for the most part, privately-owned lands but also included two town-owned properties in the downtown core. The developer’s proposal required that the town grant considerable concessions including selling town lands at greatly reduced prices and the waiving of development charges and sewer and water charges to the tune of several million dollars. However, during the due diligence analysis of the proposal, the number of properties included in the plan significantly decreased as did the number of housing units; yet, the concessions requested of council and the taxpayers of the town did not decrease. In addition, one of the projects in the proposal involved private property adjacent to the Town’s property, yet the private owners had not agreed to participate. And, another of the proposed projects would not physically fit onto the available property. Council has requested that the developer come back with a proposal that addresses these concerns. Mr. Smith’s remarks indicate that, had he been sitting at the council table, he would not have done due diligence prior to agreeing to the developer’s proposal. As mayor of this community and head of council, I am playing on Team Carleton Place. Mr. Smith’s remarks indicate that, had he been sitting at the council table, he would be playing on Team Developer. Which team do our taxpayers want to see come out ahead?

DEAR EDITOR: Normally, I do not respond to letters of the editor as generally misinformation and misunderstanding of the issues can be cleared up with a simple telephone call or email to myself, other council members or staff. However in this particular case, I am bending from my personal policy, as a letter to the editor from Doug Smith in last week’s (June 6) edition of the Almonte Carleton Place Canadian Gazette EMC is replete with distortions that call out for response. In the letter, Mr. Smith speaks to four proposed developments within the town, and I will address each of them individually. The proposal to build an apartment building on Franktown Road is a major redevelopment in an existing residential neighbourhood. The required process under the development permit bylaw is to hold a public meeting whereby neighbouring residents have an opportunity to voice their opinions. As a result of the public meeting, council established reasonable requirements for the developer to satisfy the concerns of the neighbours. Mr. Smith’s remarks indicate that, had he been sitting at the council table, he would have ignored the rational and practical concerns of the residents in favour of the developer. The second issue addressed by Mr. Smith involves the employment lands located on Hooper St. As in most Ontario municipalities, council has acquired these lands to sell at a reasonable price in the interests of economic development. Last March, council was faced with a request

AGH President & CEO reports on progress made during past year By Mary Wilson Trider A year ago, we launched an ambitious strategic plan. We have since worked to advance the four areas of strategic focus. In support of the strategic focus on core programs and services, we completely renovated the Central Sterile Reprocessing area to ensure state-of-the-art service to the Operating Room, Obstetrics (OBS) Department and Emergency. Thanks to provincial funding, the OBS physicians, nurses and midwives have joined MOREOb. This threeyear program integrates professional practice standards and guidelines with current and evolving patient safety concepts, principles and tools. The Ottawa Valley Midwives completed training that made Almonte General Hospital (AGH) the second Ontario hospital and first small hospital where midwives are first assist to surgeons performing Caesarean sections. Another strategic focus is aging and end-of- life patients. With Ministry funding, we developed new pain management protocols and new resource material for palliative care patients and families. We have worked

closely with The Hub Hospice and other community partners to begin developing a collaborative local network of palliative care providers. We have also collaborated with The Mills Corporation and The Alzheimer Society to support a Day Away program in Almonte. Using our assets to generate revenue while better serving the community’s health and wellness needs is a third strategic focus. This past year, the Alzheimer Society of Lanark County established an office in Fairview Manor (FVM) and Leeds, Grenville, Lanark Public Health is now located at 79 Spring Street. Throughout, we have continued to provide safe, highquality care for our patients and residents. AGH achieved its 2012-13 Quality Improvement Plan objectives in hand hygiene, medication management, VTE prophylaxis, ER wait times, patient satisfaction and financial results. We reported 100 per cent compliance with the Surgical Safety checklist and had no hospitalacquired cases of VRE, MRSA or C. difficile. The results of a patient satisfaction survey by Lanark County Ambulance Service (LCAS) have been excellent, including comments about being safe, prompt and

compassionate care during times of distress. Nearly all FVM residents and families who responded to surveys last November said they would recommend FVM, and 100 per cent of the participating family members said they feel their loved one is safe in FVM. In August, NRC Picker announced that AGH ranked in the 90th percentile for overall patient satisfaction with acute care and for the number of acute care and ER patients who would recommend AGH to their friends and family. The most recent patient satisfaction data shows 97.1 per cent of the respondents would recommend us. Many thanks to the staff, medical staff, volunteers and Board members who contributed to the work of AGH, FVM, LCAS and the Foundation this past year. I would like to particularly recognize the contributions of Tom Todd during the past two years as Board Chair, and of Past Chair Carol Bean who has retired after 13 years on the Board.

Knowles. “We have not made an arrangement with them (Bbq). If they decide to submit an offer, council will deal with it when it arrives.” The CAO couldn’t understand why people were hung up on someone who wrote an expression of interest; someone the town hasn’t heard from since. “There is nothing else to tell,” said Knowles. Probert brought the discussion back to widening the exemption to development charges in the downtown area. Flynn initially moved a motion to accept the fourth scenario – the inclusion of Beckwith and Victoria streets. However, after learning it would still restrict what the DDG was trying to accomplish, he moved another option. “You are going to the audience and asking the people in the audience if it includes their property,” said Sonnenburg. No council member seconded Flynn’s motion. Sonnenburg then moved a motion for status quo, which was seconded by Strike. It carried 4-2. Coun. Doug Black and Flynn voted nay. LeBlanc, Probert, Sonnenburg and Strike voted yea. Photo by KELLY KENT Questioning the mayor

EMC News – Jordan McIntosh may have grown up in a country song, but he’s getting a taste of the celebrity life lately. On Sat. June 8, the young singing sensation began filming his second music video for his new single ‘Grew Up in a Country Song’, which was released this past Monday and can now be heard on radio stations like Y101. The video was filmed at McIntosh Automotive Center, which is owned by McIntosh’s father. The garage was filled with smoke from a fog machine while he and his band rocked out beside two vintage cars. Drummer Carter Peak, lead guitarist Connor Riddell, acoustic guitarist Andrew Woibes, bassist

Nick Deroucher and fiddle player Michaela Mullan have been working with McIntosh since the end of 2012. All are young, talented and a good fit for McIntosh, who is only 17 himself. McIntosh says the video should be released within a couple of weeks, but updates can always be found on his Facebook page, website and Twitter. In addition to advancing his musical career, McIntosh has stepped into the world of big screen acting. For the past three weeks McIntosh has been in Vancouver, B.C. filming a Christmas movie for CMT. The movie, called ‘Home for Christmas’, features some big names like Canadian country singer George Canyon and ‘Flashpoint’ actress Amy Jo Johnson. Read more in next week’s Canadian Gazette.

year, trying to encourage downtown development,” said Thorbjornsson. “You ran very heavily on this issue. This seems to be close to your heart, trying to get some revitalization in the downtown core.” On the other hand, he told the mayor she failed to show any real result in that. “What I said to you tonight stands,” said LeBlanc. “We already have people wanting to develop in the downtown core without waiving the development charges.” “Do you have firm plans for that?” questioned Thorbjornsson. “No, but I have no doubt we will have people coming,” she replied. “We have people walking in the door every single day looking for property to develop in this town. I am not willing to give up on the development charges.” LeBlanc commented Crombie is going to be doing work, and there’s a plan afoot to expand the second floor of the Olympia restaurant. There’s also the project for the seniors’ building on Laura St. “We’ve had people interested in the property across the river that you offered $1 for,” said LeBlanc. “What kind of offer did you get?” asked Thorbjornsson. “It wasn’t a firm offer,” said the mayor. “It came in as an interest, but I am certain they would have paid more than $1 for it.” “Every day for the last two years you’ve had people walking in your door showing interest, but nothing really happens,” said the Icelandic developer. “Is that the status quo you want to maintain?” “Wally, I don’t want to be noted as another (Dalton) McGuinty, playing with contractors to get a couple of votes,” said Sonnenburg. “I do what’s right for the ratepayers.” Probert interjected and closed the conversation off. Following the meeting on May 28, Antonakos provided the following comment to the Canadian Gazette: “We need to start thinking about how we can work with developers and small business. This community needs more employment opportunities. The economic climate in our community is of great concern to me and I’m concerned that developers and businesses will seek opportunities elsewhere if the current culture of red tape and excuses continue.”

New Blossom Weight Loss and Image holds open house tgesner@perfprint.ca

EMC Business – When you look good, you feel good. Blossom Weight Loss and Image in Carleton Place held an open house on May 23 to launch image tools – an optional part of the weight loss program. Kimberly Salter opened the qualified Ideal Protein clinic a year ago in February. Losing weight is life transforming, she said, but learning how to dress for your body type, knowing your most flattering colours in clothes and makeup can make a world of difference. “Weight and image go to-

gether,” said Salter. “Know your colour, dress your season.” Based on appearance, the majority of people will judge someone within the first seven minutes of meeting them. Cathie McOrmond, manager of the local Business Improvement Association and a Blossom Weight Loss and Image client, was a volunteer model at the open house. As a result, she received a seasonal colour analysis by Salter. The outcome: spring, a light warm and bright colour palette. “When women and men are losing weight they typically wait until they reach their goal before looking into what clothes or

colours flatter their body figure,” said Salter. “If they do it sooner, it helps them embrace the change and can act as motivation.” Rebecca LeBlanc, independent consultant and executive area manager with Arbonne (skin care line), carried out a product demonstration. Moreover, she applied the cosmetics for McOrmond’s makeover, which featured clothing from Wisteria. Arbonne products, endorsed by Blossom Weight Loss and Image, are healthy, botanicallybased and inspired by nature. “The products contain no parabens, animal products or petroleum,” said LeBlanc, “and

a policy is in place to screen out gluten.” McOrmond loved her new look. Ideal Protein Blossom Weight Loss and Image offers Ideal Protein weight loss and personal weight loss coaching. Encompassing a four-phase protocol, Ideal Protein targets fat loss, helps maintain muscle mass and naturally suppresses appetite. “On average, participants lose 30 pounds in 10 weeks,” said Salter.

Everyone is different, however. “Your ideal weight is where you can participate in life and feel good,” she said. Ideal Protein is nature’s way of losing weight. The body draws energy from three compartments to meet its metabolic needs: carbohydrates, muscle and fats. By limiting the carbohydrate intake the body is forced to turn to its fat and muscle compartments. “We ensure the body consumes an adequate amount of protein to ensure muscle is not lost,” explained Salter.

Participants receive one-onone personalized support and weekly follow-up. “We give you the knowledge to keep the weight off,” she said. Dr. Tran Tien Chanh, MD PhD, developed the protocol in France 25 years ago. “At Blossom Weight Loss and Image, we refuse to be defined by the number on a scale,” said Salter. Blossom Weight and Image is located at 136 Bridge St., Suite 5. For more information, call 613809-2807 or visit www.blossomweightlossandimage.com.

Ceremony marks arrival of Howitzer guns at Memorial Park By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

EMC News – These guns will roar no more in anger. Where once they were used by Canada’s soldiers to defend us, the two Howitzers now sit silently, guardians of the respect with which Carleton Place remembers its veterans. “There was an element that was missing to our expansion project,” said Ron Goebel, president of the Carleton Place Royal Canadian Legion’s cenotaph committee, at the dedication ceremony in Memorial Park on Saturday, June 8. The week was a special week for members of the Canadian military family, with the 69th anniversary of D-Day marked on June 6, Canadian Forces Day on June 2, and the end of the Korean War commemorated at the end of the month. D-Day was known as “The Longest Day,” but like the Canadian soldiers who stormed Juno Beach in Normandy back in 1944, the Legion committee also went through a tough slog to get through the bureaucratic lines to get the Howitzer guns installed. “There were times when we were ready to throw in the towel, as so many other communities across Canada had done… We didn’t realize we would have to jump through so many hoops,” admitted Goebel. “But we persevered.” Coun. Jerry Flynn agreed that the Carleton Place Legion

and its supporters had held firm in their resolve. “While other communities gave up, we did not,” Flynn said. “I am proud of our cenotaph and what it represents…I hope that everyone shares my pride and the sanctity of it.” Flynn joined others in thanking Thomas Cavanagh for donating a truck and a driver to transport the two mighty war machines from Canadian Forces Base Uplands to Memorial Park. Legion president George Wood looked back on the threeand-a-half year struggle to complete the project. “The long wait has been worth it,” he said. “I believe we are one of the best-looking memorial parks in the country. I hope that we will continue to respect the sanctity of this park and what it represents.” While many remarked on the sacrifices, sometimes the ultimate sacrifice, made by Canada’s soldiers in both war and peacekeeping missions around the world, Carleton Place Mayor reminded the audience that the memorial was also a sentinel for “our hope for peace and a better tomorrow. We continue to show our gratitude and remembrance.” While the last of Canada’s active duty troops came back from fighting Italy and Germany nearly seven decades ago, Canada has continued to send her soldiers abroad to the most unlikely of places, either on the ground or in the air – Afghani-

stan, Korea, Libya, Cyprus, Egypt, Haiti, the former Yugoslavia, just to name a few. The ceremony had a particular poignancy for Randy Hillier, since his own son is still on active duty and was due to be shipped out to Afghanistan on June 10. The Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox and Addington MPP said that for all of the troops that were being sent there, “we hope and pray that they will all return home safe and sound.” There were some lighter moments during the ceremony as well, as Goebel addressed the question on the minds of quite a few people present – are the guns still capable of firing? “They are inoperable because Photos by DESMOND DEVOY the minister across the road doesn’t want them firing on his Members of the Royal Canadian Legion’s Carleton Place branch were saluted as they church,” joked Goebel, since began their parade from town hall, down Bridge Street, towards Memorial Park, for the the guns are pointed right at Howitzer gun dedication ceremony on June 8. Zion-Memorial United Church on Franklin St. During the ceremony, Rev. David Andrew of St. James’ Anglican Church, read from the Book of Ecclesiastes, chapter three. “There is a time for everything,” he read. “A time to be born, and a time to die…A time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance…a time to search and a time to give up…a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.” Our fresh-made kebabs make the perfect quick and healthy meal – ready in

Impromptu bird outing results in witnessing new bird species EMC Lifestyle – Friday afternoon, May 31, Georgina Doe and I went birding to see what we could find. On a back road, we stopped to look and listen. Two birds flew into a nearby shrub, giving us great views. Too big for warblers, and incorrect shape for sparrows, they were vireos. Which vireo were they? We noted the details, then checked our references at home. We had seen a pair of Philadelphia Vireos – a new species for the year for both of us. Our next door neighbors have seen a Ruffed Grouse sitting on the nest. They have also seen a Wild Turkey nest with 18 eggs in it, which have been predated. They will wait until next year to try again. Monday, June 3, after an appointment and lunch, Georgina and I birded on the way home from Ottawa. Driving along Conley Road, by

and Eastern Meadowlarks were singing, often perched on a fence post. One field had a female Northern Harrier flying low over it, hunting for a meal. In Carleton Place, Georgina has watched a Song Sparrow pair bringing material for their nest over the last month. Now they are bringing food for their nestlings. Friends who live in Car-

leton Place have told us where they observed a Loggerhead Shrike. Georgina and I went to the area June 5, saw 38 species on our trip, but no Loggerhead Shrike. We met a gentleman who lives there, and he has not seen one this spring as yet. We will have to try again another time. Please call Lynda at 613-256-5013 or email bennett@magma.ca with bird reports.

a creek, we heard an Alder Flycatcher, a bird Georgina needed for her list. Two days before, I had driven along a Breeding Bird Survey route that we used to complete. I heard or saw 45 species, one of which was an Alder Flycatcher. Upland Sandpipers have been observed where they were seen last year, along Dunrobin Road. I drove up there June 4, hoping to find one, but none were seen! Lots of Bobolinks

THE EMC - A/CP17 - Thursday, June 13, 2013


LOCAL NEWS FLUORIDE From page A/CP2

number of organizations have lined up to convince people they should drink the water anyway. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each organization is essentially telling you that when you swallow fluoridated drinking water, you will suffer no adverse effects anywhere in your body â&#x20AC;&#x201C; ever,â&#x20AC;? said Thomas, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and you will enjoy substantial benefits for a lifetime.â&#x20AC;? However, what is fluoride up to in the blood vessels between the stomach and the teeth? â&#x20AC;?Fluoride is an enzyme poison,â&#x20AC;? said Thomas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The poisoning of enzymes is one of the reasons why animals and plants sicken and die. Painting a smiley face on fluoride doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t change what it is.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;?Swallowing fluoridated water has very little effect on reducing dental caries,â&#x20AC;? said Fleming,â&#x20AC;? and a lifetime of swallowing fluoridated water is less than one full cavity reduction per person.â&#x20AC;? He stated Health Canada has been forced to admit human health harm toxicology research has never been conducted on HSFA, and it further admits HSFA is not regulated under Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Food and Drugs Act. HSFA contains trace co-contaminants: arsenic, lead mercury and radionuclides.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are no safe levels of arsenic,â&#x20AC;? said Fleming. Furthermore, he stated HSFA accelerates lead leaching into drinking water from leaded pipes, leaded solder and leaded brass fittings. According to Fleming, HSFA has yet to be scientifically proven safe and effective for a lifetime of human consumption â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at any concentration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s simply not worth the risk,â&#x20AC;? he exclaimed In regards to the Fluoridation Act, the speaker noted it remains silent on putting HSFA into municipal drinking water. â&#x20AC;?It makes no reference to fluoride or HSFA,â&#x20AC;? said Fleming. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It only references a fluoridation system (equipment and materials for the addition of a chemical compound to release fluoride ions into a public water supply). In 1957 the Supreme Court of Canada made a ruling that fluoridating municipal drinking water is compulsory preventative medication of the inhabitants. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Safe Drinking Water Act is about treating drinking water, it is not about treating people,â&#x20AC;? said Fleming. Following the presentations, councillors asked a number of questions, in addition to members of the community.

Local dentists, including Dr. David Stevenson voiced support for the continued fluoridation of the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s water supply. â&#x20AC;?It helps to level the playing field,â&#x20AC;? he said. In March, after more than 50 years, Windsor ceased adding fluoride to the

cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s water supply to fight cavities. Council voted 8-3 at its Feb. 4 meeting to remove the substance. In 1955, Toronto approved water fluoridation, but delayed implementation of the program until 1963. Montreal does not fluoridate its drinking water.

avoid classification as an adverse health effect.â&#x20AC;? The scientist under pressure knew better. He knew ingested fluoride interferes with natural formation of tooth enamel. The white spots and streaks that result are areas where the enamel has become porous and brittle. â&#x20AC;?He saw this as an injury to the teeth,â&#x20AC;? said Thomas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Other EPA scientists thought so too. At that point they started studying fluoridation for the first time ever very closely. Soon enough, this body of 1,500 scientists was convinced.â&#x20AC;? Before any product or chemical is made available for human consumption, it must be subjected to rigorous examination â&#x20AC;&#x201C; toxicology studies involving animal tests and later clinical trials in human volunteers. It must also be established that it will do as advertised. â&#x20AC;?If this target chemical survives that kind of scrutiny, it can be considered safe,â&#x20AC;? said Thomas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That kind of scientific scrutiny has never been applied to the fluoridated chemical in your water.â&#x20AC;? Despite the obvious risks, he said a

EMC News – Almonte District High School (ADHS) hosted their annual MOGA (Most Outrageous Group Activity) event Wednesday, June 5. Despite the chilly morning temperatures, the kids seemed to have a blast slipping and sliding down a makeshift water slide, digging for toy aliens in water and cornstarch slime and throwing water balloons. Two students (pictured left) wait to catch a water balloon that was thrown by another team with a towel.

It’s MOGA time!

At right, Beckwith Township fire department volunteer firefighter Mike Hart helps threeand-a-half-year-old Karson Kipp of Lanark Highlands Township hold the hose during fire hose target practice. Below, Ashtyn Dufresne, 4, decides to get wet in a different way, taking advantage of his Wellington boots and abundant puddles near the stage to do the time honoured rite of childhood, splashing in puddles. Ah, you’re only young once.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Drugosaurusâ&#x20AC;? undercover cops battle greed, weed, and misdeeds desmond.devoy@metroland.com

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably a good thing if you do recognize Detective Constable Steve Rothwell in his work clothes. Because if you recognize him in his other, undercover work clothes, then he probably has some questions to ask you. Rothwell describes part of his job as walking around with â&#x20AC;&#x153;my hat on backwards, in my jeans, trying to find out whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going in the county,â&#x20AC;? drug-wise. Both Rothwell and Detective Sgt. Chris Dobler of the organized crime enforcement bureau in Ottawa, were on hand at the municipal drug strategy committee networking session on March 1 at the Brunton Community Hall,

Blacks Corners, Beckwith Township. They were there to lift the lid a little on how they do their job to catch the crooks and dealers preying on the vulnerable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a bit of a drugosaurus,â&#x20AC;? said Dobler with a laugh, of his 12 years in the drugs unit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am not going anywhere.â&#x20AC;? Dobler said he was heartened to see so many people together in one place, talking openly, honestly, and constructively about how to deal with the scourge of drugs. This was necessary not only because it is the right thing to do, but also because it is what the other side is doing, too. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The criminals, they are working together,â&#x20AC;? said Dobler. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not where the Hells Angels work alone. They are with the mafia, the Jamaicans and Asian gangs.â&#x20AC;?

While the criminals never really change, the drug of the day most certainly does, and the chase is always on to catch on to the next big thing, and to bring our lurching laws along in to catch up. Nowadays, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;bath salts,â&#x20AC;? that are the problem. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are seeing that now,â&#x20AC;? admitted Dobler. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are getting a lot of bath salt seizures.â&#x20AC;? Bath salts have just recently been â&#x20AC;&#x153;codeified,â&#x20AC;? for enforcement as a controlled substance, but the first cases using these laws are only getting to court now. Certain mandatory minimum sentences in the Criminal Code also came into effect this past November, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;we wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel the effects of that yet,â&#x20AC;? on drug cases. He did point out that, before the changes in sentencing, a bust of 40,000 marijuana plants

in Petawawa netted the perpetrator five years â&#x20AC;&#x201C; whereas the same crime in the United States would have resulted in a life sentence. Other well-known drugs are seeing resurgence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Crack is very dangerous but speed (amphetamine) is just the ultimate drug in destroying peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lives,â&#x20AC;? said Dobler, with one tablet costing as little as $5. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For $5 you will feel like you can take on the whole world. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a 10 out of 10. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re seeing it in pill form. Down in Kingston, we are seeing crystal meth. Speed, there is definitely an influx of thatâ&#x20AC;Śwe are seeing Fentanyl here.â&#x20AC;? In a dozen years dealing with drugs, Dobler has seen the scene change in scary ways. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Twelve years ago, it would be very rare if we saw a needle at a search warrant,â&#x20AC;? said Dobler.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now, it comes across all the time.â&#x20AC;? The only thing that does not change is the greed of the criminals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is no loyalty, they (drug dealers) are not your best friend,â&#x20AC;? said Dobler. For them, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about the money. While itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not uncommon for drug abusers to believe they can trust their dealer, they also believe other incorrect information, like marijuana being relatively harmless. Drug suppliers will also tweak other drugs to boost their bottom line. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The coke (cocaine) we are seeing in the schools, it is buffed up, it is weaker,â&#x20AC;? said Dobler, adding that up to 50 per cent of ecstasy is laced with some type of methamphetamine, since ecstasy itself is not addictive, but dealers want

to get kids hooked. Dobler heard this himself from drug dealers in Hawkesbury. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The drug dealers were telling us, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;bag â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;em up, get the kids addicted,â&#x20AC;? recalled Dobler. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They will keep coming back to you.â&#x20AC;? One way to do this was to stamp logos and cartoons on to the pills â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including a John Deere tractor logo, or the Transformers cartoon logo, or an Ottawa Senators logo, though, in Hawkesbury, Dobler saw that Montreal Canadiens logos were selling better. He urged attendees and the public to remain vigilant and not be afraid of seeming like the paranoid old man on the block, always calling the cops. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What might seem small to you could be the cherry on top for us,â&#x20AC;? said Dobler. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel right, it likely isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t.â&#x20AC;?

Tim Murray Trio plays jazz in Almonte Camp Merrywood opens hot pad June 23 ing their music in a friendly comfortable home. The quality of the music was outstanding. Repeat and referred guests to the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;JazzNHouseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; concerts are many. At the final instalment of the seven-concert season on June 22, the Tim Murray Trio will perform. Murray is a jazz pianist who happily made Perth his home three years ago. With Murray on piano, the trio includes Charley Gordon on trumpet and flugelhorn and Sol Gunner on bass. Man, this group has roots! They have played together since 1959. The Tim Murray quintet was formed in 1960 and quickly became the mainstay of the Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s University and Kingston jazz scene. Fast forward through various gigs and con-

certs during their working lives to 2008; since then the group played to three sell-out audiences at the National Arts Centre (NAC) Fourth stage. In 2012, they released two CDs and a short video which can be seen on YouTube. In the trio format, the group still honours its jazz heroes such as Oscar Peterson, Clifford Brown, Horace Silver and Ray Brown. Putting an emphasis on melody and swing, the Tim Murray Trioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book features standards, jazz classics by composers such as Horace Silver, Keith Jarrett and Gerry Mulligan. The Tim Murray Trio will perform Saturday, June 22 at 7:30 p.m. in Almonte. For more information and tickets ($20 per person), visit www.JazzN.ca, but hurry, space is limited.

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; This summer, kids with physical disabilities at Easter Seals Camp Merrywood will have the opportunity to shoot hoops, slow dance and enjoy barbecue camp fare in Merrywoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new outdoor facility donated by a group of Easter Seals parents, the Hot Pad. On Sunday, June 23, Camp Merrywood will celebrate its 65th anniversary by welcoming in the Hot Pad, along with an open house and the Merrywood/ Perth Power Play. A few years ago, Easter Seals mom Yvette Serpellini and several other Easter Seals parents raised $102,000 through individual fundraising efforts. After recognizing the need for a multipurpose outdoor space at Camp

Merrywood, the group decided to donate their fund towards the design and build of the Hot Pad, named by Yvetteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter and Merrywood camper, Rebecca. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every summer, Rebecca tries new activities, makes new friends and experiences a sense of accomplishment at Camp Merrywood â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a unique experience for a child with physical disabilities,â&#x20AC;? says Serpellini. The multi-use space includes a covered, concrete area where children with physical disabilities will have the opportunity to play wheelchair basketball, sledge hockey and other recreational activities as well as enjoy barbecues and dances. The unveiling of the Hot Pad will take place at 1:30 p.m.

through an official ribbon-cutting ceremony with the Serpellini family. The event will also recognize a generous in-kind gift from Yvetteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s husband, Angelo Serpellini, and his company, DCI Durabuilt Construction Inc., a $24,000 gift from the Bernard & Norton Wolf Family Foundation for the purchase of 8 basketball wheelchairs and a $5,000 gift from the Perth and District Community Foundation for the purchase of two composting toilets at the site. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are extremely grateful for the support and generosity of our donors, which has allowed us to build the Hot Pad at Camp Merrywood,â&#x20AC;? said Sandra Bellisario, vice president, development, Easter Seals Ontario.

EMC Entertainment â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Something special has been happening in Almonte â&#x20AC;&#x201C; house concerts! They have brought excellent jazz music to the town and to the region. Intimacy is key. Sitting in someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s living room, you can hear and see the musicians up close and in true fidelity as they create their music. For the musicians, proximity to the audience can make the music more like a conversation. It costs far less than more established venues and provides an opportunity to meet the musicians, have some bring-yourown wine and cheese and make new acquaintances. The Peter Hum Trio from Ottawa and the Miguel de Armas Trio have given two recent shows. It was a first for both groups and they loved offer-

High school program makes the grade; featured in popular magazine By TARA GESNER tgesner@perfprint.ca

EMC News – Owing to its success, Carleton Place High School’s (CPHS) CrossFit program was recently featured in Sweat RX Magazine – volume two, issue four. The publication focuses on CrossFit, exercise and stars of the sport. Veteran CPHS teacher and coach and CrossFit enthusiast Brian Dickie got the program off the ground, and this year more than 50 per cent of all Grade 11 and Grade 12 students are participating. Students take a normal course load and CrossFit is part of their physical education (PE) requirement, he explained. Currently, there are seven classes. Students learn about strength training, fitness and nutrition. “To say it is successful is an understatement,” said Dickie. “The waiting list is huge.” “Brian has built this program from the ground up,” said principal Eric Hardie, “and it is now one of the most popular in the school.” A resident of Carleton Place, Dickie has deep-rooted ties to CPHS – he is an alumni. “Being featured in the magazine was an honour and quite humbling,” he said. “However, the fact that our program is so successful in the school and community allows me the lib-

erty of being comfortable with the exposure.” The school’s CrossFit program encompasses everything Dickie wants to use to teach his students to become healthy and fit. He started doing CrossFit in his PE classes in 2003. Gymnastics is the foundation for all sports and CrossFit reintroduces it (in schools), but in a fun manner. Dickie said a number of participants have experienced success, including one boy who lost and outstanding 80 pounds. “He is now able to do things that he couldn’t do before,” he said. Another male student gained 19 pounds of muscle – just through weight training and eating the proper food. CPHS’ CrossFit classes are co-ed. “We are also helping to dispel the myth that girls get large from weight training,” said Dickie. Yes, the program pushes boundaries, but everything is done is an extremely safe manner. “Safety (correct form) is our number one priority,” said the educator. CrossFit mimics what people do in everyday life, and the program is designed for universal scalability. It is perfect for any individual regardless of experience.

Carleton Place High School’s CrossFit program was recently featured in Sweat RX Magazine because of its success. The program was started by veteran CPHS teacher Brian Dickie. The class goes toward the students’ physical education requirements and involves strength training, fitness and nutrition.

CROSS FIT From page A/CP27

“Participants can run or walk at their own pace, and if there’s an injury, a rowing machine can be incorporated, for example,” said Dickie. Although the nutritional component of the program is optional, to get the most out of the program, it is recommended. During the program’s first month,

students learn the basics of designing a workout – running, walking, weights, pull-ups, etc. Then, under Dickie’s guidance, they begin WODs (workout of day) at least twice weekly. “Students become engaged,” said Dickie. CrossFit CPHS is a non-profit affiliate of CrossFit, which is a fullservice fitness consultancy. There

are affiliates worldwide. CrossFit CPHS is now officially linked on CrossFit.com. Dickie needed to apply to CrossFit to become a nonprofit member. They were extremely receptive. Moreover, he applied for and received a grant ($30,000) from the Ministry of Education. The CrossFit CPHS gym is fully equipped for the program.

Although youth today are labelled as being uncaring and lazy, Dickie insists the students involved in the CrossFit program have enthusiasm and a willingness to learn. Too, they proudly wear their CrossFit CPHS T-shirts. Dickie is now receiving calls from other high schools interested in starting up a CrossFit program. Like a proud father, he noted a

CrossFit gym hired a former student and CrossFit CPHS participant now attending Humber College in Toronto. “When students come home to Carleton Place from university or college, they come to the school and use the gym,” said Dickie. For more information about the Cross Fit program at CPHS, contact Dickie at 613-257-2720.

CPHS makes big impression at OFSAA track and field championships EMC Sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Carleton Place High School (CPHS) had the most successful East Regional track and field meet in school history as 23 out of the 29 competitors secured a spot in the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations (OFSAA) Championships, which were held in

Oshawa Thursday through Saturday (June 6-8). The pole vaulters led the charge for the garnet and gold squad as three of them won their events: Lindsay Abercrombie won the senior girls event with a vault of 2.75 metres (m); Hannah Van Hofwegen won

the midget girls with a new record of 2.45 m; and Jamie McNaughton won the junior boys with a leap of 3.45 m. CPHS shone in the relays as they qualified 4 teams in the 4 x 100m relay races â&#x20AC;&#x201C; midget boys, junior boys and senior boys, along with the ju-

nior girls. This is certainly a standard that has never been set before by any Lanark County track and field team, and it has been noticed around the province as a noteworthy testament to the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quality program. Melissa Harvie has also capped off a brilliant season of sprinting as

she qualified in the junior girls 100 m dash. She is also a valuable member of her relay team. To have this number of athletes participate in the most competitive high school track and field meet in Canada is a cause for celebration. Submitted by CPHS. R0012149398

Jacobs picks up first win as head coach EMC Sports – If there was a monkey on the back of Ottawa Invaders head coach Wayne Jacobs, it was washed off once and for all with a Gatorade shower Saturday night (June 8) in Toronto. Jacobs earned his first win as the Invaders’ head coach as they defeated the Toronto Raiders 3312 at Esther Shiner Stadium in North York Saturday night. At the conclusion of the game, players on his team gave him the traditional Gatorade bucket shower. The win evened the Invaders’ record at 1-1. The team is at home Saturday, June 15 at Beckwith Park to take on the first place Durham Hawkeyes. Kick off is at 7 p.m. “It was a good win for us, but we still have a lot of work to do and a lot of areas to improve upon,” said Jacobs. The Raiders controlled the first quarter of play, chewing up 11 minutes on the opening drive of the game. A costly roughing the kicker call and a second unnecessary roughness call not only kept the drive alive, but it also put the Raiders into the Invaders’ red zone and set up their first score.

The Invaders got the ball back and quarterback Jeff Hildreth went to work, driving the team down the field before finding Andrew Foss in the end zone for a 23-yard touchdown. The score was set up by a 38-yard reception by Danny Mullins. Jeff Morris added the extra point, giving the Invaders a 7-6 lead. After Morris pinned the Raiders deep in their own end with a punt out of bounds, linebacker Christian Contreras picked up a safety for the Invaders to make the score 9-6. Adam Gourgon returned the ensuing kickoff to the Raiders’ 45, and Hildreth fired a touchdown pass to Bobby Massie on the next play. Morris added the extra point to make the score 166. A Ryan Lorette interception after the kickoff gave the Invaders one more chance before the half. Hildreth found Foss in the open, but he was tackled at the 15-yard line as time expired. In the third quarter, the Invaders kept rolling. Hildreth found Foss for his second TD catch of the game, this one from five yards out. Morris added the extra point to make the score 23-6. Adam Gourgon scored on the

next drive on a one-yard run, and Morris’ kick gave the Invaders a 30-6 lead. The Invaders defence, meanwhile, got interceptions from Lorette, Rhami Aboud and Mike Lacelle to keep the Raiders at bay. Phil Dixon finally scored for the Raiders late in the third quarter, making the score 30-12. The Raiders attempted an onside kick, but a heads up play by Craig Hodge gave the Invaders the ball at the Raiders 50. Rookie Leith Fisken took over from Hildreth and played the fourth quarter. He drove the Invaders into the Raiders’ red zone to set up a Morris field goal to make the score 33-12. Hildreth completed 17 passes for 267 yards, while Fisken, in his debut, completed four passes for 60 yards. Foss tied a team record with nine receptions and had 117 yards and two TDs. John McNulty, making his first start at wide receiver, caught five passes for 80 yards. Adam Gourgon led Invaders’ rushers with 81 yards on 11 carries, while TJ Williams had 33 yards on eight carries. Submitted by the Ottawa Invaders.

Wheelers Pancake House and Sugar Camp CHEO fundraiser a smashing success EMC News – The evening of Saturday, June 8 saw a packed house at Wheelers Pancake House and Sugar Camp near McDonald’s Corners for the Wheelers Maple Kitchen Party. Coinciding with the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) Telethon weekend all funds raised during the evening went to benefit the CHEO Foundation. The Kitchen Party raised a total of $5,900 through ticket sales, a silent auction, and individual donations. The great services that are provided to our children and youth at CHEO was highlighted by former area resident Dennis Jackson who shared some of his family’s experiences at the hospital. Along with the funds raised at Wheelers, the 30th annual CHEO telethon raised a total of $6.8 million over the weekend. The Kitchen Party featured toe tapping family entertainment and plenty of food with Lanark County maple syrup. The Wheeler family, along with volunteers Leaha Adam and Kate Hall, served an all-youcan-eat maple feast including pancakes, French toast, maple sausages, and maple baked beans topped off with Angela Wheeler’s scrumptious homemade maple sugar pie and other maple themed desserts. Joel Smith and Josh Roy, Vernon and Judy Wheeler’s son-in-laws, provided the first set of music. This was the lads’ first public performance after years of playing at family birthdays. Referring to themselves as The Sonin-Laws, they played covers ranging from Paul Brandt to the ‘Green Acres’ theme song. The Roberts Family of Lanark finished off the evening with their own brand of kitchen music with moving ballads, Irish jigs, and hymns that brought the whole house to their feet. The audience was treated to an intimate glimpse into the family’s kitchen with their energetic and soulful songs featuring outstanding harmonies. Three of the ten members of the Roberts Family on stage were in-

Reflections BY JEFF MAGUIRE

I have encountered people who shamelessly allow their dogs to foul sidewalks right in front of me. Depending on circumstances I have given a few such offenders a blast. Usually it is best to keep your thoughts to yourself however, partly for personal security reasons but mainly because someone like that simply doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get it. There are few cures available for stupidity! Then there are those who belong to what I call â&#x20AC;&#x153;the sneaky dog fouling set.â&#x20AC;? Those who appear set to do the right thing and clear up after their pet. Instead they wait until passersby are at a safe distance and then callously skulk off, leaving the excrement where it fell. Finally there are the aforementioned folks who simply open the door and let their dog or cat range through the neighbourhood to do what comes natural. We have some on our block actually. Disgraceful behaviour! In my capacity as chairman of the local Sister City Committee I regularly read the online edition of the Strathearn Herald newspaper, based in Perth, Scotland. It is one way to keep up with happenings in Comrie, the village which has been twinned with Carleton Place since 1992. The communities marked the 20th anniversary of their linkage last August. My wife and I have visited Comrie on five occasions, including last summer. Comrie red flag One of the benefits of twinning (or Sister Cities as we call

it here) is that we can learn lessons from one another. With reference to the issue I am writing about this week, Comrie residents have taken a step which I feel we can all learn and hopefully benefit from in our own communities. A recent story in the Herald says â&#x20AC;&#x153;more and more Comrie residentsâ&#x20AC;? are taking up what appears to me to be a very innovative â&#x20AC;&#x153;red flag initiative.â&#x20AC;? According to the newspaper the program is â&#x20AC;&#x153;a bid to shame dog walkers who fail to pick up their animalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mess.â&#x20AC;? The initiative began in an estate (subdivision) called Aros Field. Residents have quite literally been raising the red flag on those who persistently let dogs foul on grass verges outside their homes. The newspaper story says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;They (home owners) have been sticking red flags in the muck in an attempt to highlight the mess dogs are leaving behind and encouraging owners to clear up after them.â&#x20AC;? An Aros Field resident named Malcolm Allan started the campaign after hearing how red flags had â&#x20AC;&#x153;been successfully used as a deterrent elsewhere.â&#x20AC;? Now other Comrie folk have decided to give the idea a try. Members of the Comrie Community Orchard Group are taking flags with them when they go to Cultybraggan Camp to work on the orchard. Cultybraggan is a former World War II prisoner of war camp which has been purchased by the community and is being developed for multiple uses. Orchard group member Emma Margrett says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been thinking about doing something like this for a while up at Cultybraggan because you get a lot of dog mess and

EMC Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; One of my pet peeves is dog owners who allow their animals to foul public areas and private property while on their daily walks. I think it is absolutely shameful that some people blatantly ignore the so-called â&#x20AC;&#x153;stoop and scoopâ&#x20AC;? bylaws which exist in most communities. In the process a handful of uncaring individuals give all pet owners a bad name. It is mainly dog owners who are involved. But to be fair I have to point out that some cat owners are also guilty of turning their pets loose. Inevitably they find somewhere to do their business. On occasion the mess is found on lawns and in neighboursâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; flower borders. We have a regular problem involving wandering cats in our own subdivision so I know from whence I speak! My main beef continues to be dog owners who allow their pets to defecate on public sidewalks, in parks and on private property, often right in their own neighbourhoods. As regular readers know I am a daily walker. Admittedly watching passing dogs pee on trees and sign posts doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t thrill me. But the revolting sight of animal excrement on downtown sidewalks is enough to turn your stomach at times. At night people unwittingly wander into it and â&#x20AC;&#x201C; well, you know the rest! Sadly this is a daily problem in Carleton Place where we live. Speaking to family, colleagues and acquaintances the same issue happens in their communities as well. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a universal issue in fact! In Carleton Place town staff does a commendable job of clearing up the mess. But it is impossible to stay ahead of the problem when it happens at any time of day or night.

Twin community raises red flag on dog fouling

Know the Signs of Lyme Disease `When hiking or walking in natural areas, wear light coloured clothing, longsleeved shirts, long pants, socks and shoes. Tuck your pants into your socks.

`Lyme disease is caused by the bite of a black legged tick that is infected with the bacteria. It needs to be attached for 24-36 hours before it is able to transfer the bacteria.

` Insect repellants with DEET also provide protection. Follow directions for use.

` Other symptoms of the disease may include fever, headache, fatigue or muscle and joint pain. These may disappear, but if left untreated, Lyme disease can progress and affect the nervous system, joints and the heart.

` Check yourself for ticks (include armpits, groin, scalp and have someone else check the back of your body). `Protect your pet; contact your vet.

Symptoms: ` A red rash may appear days to weeks after a bite. A bulls-eye rash may be present around the bite.

Consult your doctor if you have been bitten by a tick and are developing the symptoms of Lyme Disease.

it’s horrible when you are working away and then you put your hand or foot in it. “Plus there are children playing up there and you don’t want kids to step in it either.” Since an initial newspaper story in early April other residents are gradually taking up the red flag idea on their own streets across the historic village in Scotland’s picturesque Highlands. The campaign pleases Comrie Community Council member Sandra McRitchie. I know Sandra as a result of the twinning initiative and we communicate occasionally by email on various matters. I know she is dedicated to the general

well-being of her community. She told the Herald she is regularly contacted by people complaining about dog fouling. “Dog mess has been a problem in the village for a long time now and I am overjoyed to see people tackling it in this way. It’s a great idea and shows how the community here in Comrie can look after itself and is willing to step up to the plate and take action when needed,” McRitchie told the newspaper. “I hope the red flags help highlight the problem caused by a minority of dog walkers who don’t pick up after their dogs and encourage them to bag the mess, rather than leave it lying around.”

Sandra and the residents of Carleton Place’s twin community of Comrie have made my point for me with this very interesting initiative. I would encourage community groups and individuals in our district to consider the same kind of affirmative action. No, it won’t solve the problem. But it will at least highlight the situation and may even act as a deterrent for those who regularly allow their dogs to mess in exactly the same place every day.

Diesel particular particulates for some new diesel engines EMC Lifestyle - One of my favourite automotive writers, Murray Jackson (www.thecrosswordguy.com , passed along a gem regarding some new diesel engine emissions technology and I couldn’t resist sharing it with everyone here. Murray and I are both confessed fans of diesel engines for passenger cars and light trucks and more and more models from more and more manufacturers are coming to showrooms wearing a diesel badge. One of the reasons for the surge in diesels is that automakers have come up with some interesting tricks to improve emissions to meet ever more stringent standards. Some of these systems involve injecting a special fluid into the exhaust and some utilize a particulate filter built into the exhaust system and some use other methods. It’s these diesel particulate filters (DPF’s) and their method of operation that are taking some consumers by surprise and posing risks to engine longevity. In normal driving or even idling, particulate filters will eventually become clogged restricting exhaust flow and lowering available engine power and eventually causing a stall-out requiring replacement or cleaning of the DPF. These units can be very expensive and would clog far too often to make replacement a viable option. So the engineers came up with a way of using diesel fuel and the engine itself as a cleaner for these exhaust scrubbers. With some vehicles a separate fuel line injects raw diesel directly into the exhaust DPF where it’s ignited and burns off the accumulated soot. As you might suspect, during these controlled ‘cleanings’ the tailpipe emissions will be off the scale in terms of toxicity, but as emission rules look to reduce the overall carbon footprint of a vehicle, a temporary blast of raw exhaust every now and then is accepted by the regulators. Some engineers have forgone the expense of a special diesel fuel injection system for the exhaust and have opted for the running-rich method of DPF cleaning. On these vehicles, when sensors in the exhaust stream detect a major pressure differential caused by a DPF that needs cleaning, the engine controller simply injects more fuel into the engine than it can burn and the uncombusted fuel flows out of the engine through the exhaust system to the DPF where it is burned to remove the soot. Interestingly enough, on some heavy commercial vehicles that use this sys-

Car Counsellor BRIAN TURNER

tem, the DPF’s can be removed and cleaned with specialized shop equipment. Engine companies like Cummins have these resources in their larger service centres and they treat the removed ash and soot as a hazardous waste. Several problems have arisen from this new technology. In order for the DPF cleaning to be completed the vehicle has to be operating at highway speeds and during the process the engine’s fuel economy will take a decided turn for the worse. On models that have instrument displays that indicate the progress of this action, drivers have reported it taking several hours of highway running before the ‘regeneration complete’ message appears. For vehicles that don’t necessarily see regular highway driving, the cleaning process can dump unburned diesel fuel into the engine’s oil pan, thus diluting the oil and possibly leading to major internal damage. Some automakers such as Mazda that have been selling their CX5’s in the UK and Australia equipped with DPFs, instruct their customers to check engine oil on a very regular basis (every 1,000 km or monthly) to look for too much oil on the dipstick as well as not enough. They’ve even added an ‘over-full’ mark to let drivers know when the oil must be changed due to diesel fuel dilution. Murray and I will both keep an eye out as smaller passenger cars with DPFs will soon start crossing our borders. If anyone currently driving a truck equipped with a DPF has any comment or opinion, please send it along. If you have any questions, opinions, or stories on anything automotive please drop me a line, [By email to emc@ perfprint.ca or directly to bjoeturner@ hotmail.com listing ‘Question for the Car Counselor’ on the subject line or by post to Record News Communications, 5 Lorne St., P.O. Box 158, Smiths Falls, Ont. K7A 4T1]. When using regular mail, please supply a phone number if you seek direct contact (due to volume I can’t always promise replies).

EMC Events – Are you a community builder or member of a community building organization? Perhaps you’re a small business person, a member of a local church or citizen’s group, a senior or youth citizen. Interested in being involved in community action? Help create an even healthier, inclusive community by attending one of the Mills Community Support’s action-oriented “town-halls” with renowned community developer, Bruce Anderson. Attend the one closest to where you live, if you can, but if there is another at a more convenient time, you’ll be welcome there. The first Welcoming Communities Workshop will be held on Wednesday, June 26 from 9 a.m. to noon in Carleton Place at Carambeck Community Centre (351 Bridge St.). You are encouraged to stay around afterwards for the Mills annual general meeting at 1 p.m. The workshop on Thursday, June 27, from 6 to 9 p.m. at Almonte’s Old Town Hall includes supper so you don’t have to worry about running home beforehand. The Smiths Falls’ Legion welcomes you to the workshop on Friday, June 28, from 9 a.m. to noon. The cost for a workshop is $20 for adults, with seniors (65+) and youth (21 and under) paying $10. There are two ways to register: you can go to www.themills.on.ca and follow the links, or simply call 613256-1031. Please make your cheque payable to Mills Community Support, writing “Welcoming Communities” on the memo line. Through Community Activators, Bruce Anderson helps professionals, educators, community organizations and citizens learn more about, and apply the core practices of, gifts, welcoming and hope within the communities they serve. Based in Washington State, he has travelled to communities large and small, giving training, presenting talks, and facilitating workshops. Learn more at communityactivators.com.

EMC Lifestyle – The next meeting of the Smiths Falls Horticultural Society will be on June 18 at 7:15 p.m. at the Smiths Falls Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 95. There is a small charge for nonmembers that can be applied to your membership fee if you decide to join at the meeting. There is plenty of variety to keep you interested in the many aspects of our meetings, flower shows, monthly ‘photo contests, interesting guest speakers, door prizes and refreshments to name a few. Hope Bell won the draw for the book by Ed Lawrence for bringing in a new member this year. Our guest speaker this month is Suzanne Patry owner of Whitehouse Perennials. Suzanne will give us her top picks for your flower garden. Anyone who has not been to their nursery near Almonte should consider a trip or sign up for the bus tour with us on Saturday, July 20. See Jeanne to sign up and ask for details about departure and return. The website for Whitehouse Perennials is www.whitehouseperennials.com. Our photo contest winners “Trees in Blossom” for May were: Bob Stanley, first, and Aline Hicks, second. The theme for June is “Floral Landscape”. Please bring your ‘photos to share with the group and participate in our people’s choice contest. We wish to thank Aline Hicks for organizing the plant sale on May 11. She surpassed all previous amounts raised. Thank you also to all who assisted at the sale and to our faithful patrons. A special thank you to those who donated plants, some by the truckload. There are too many to name but we are very grateful to all for making the sale a success. There is a People’s Choice Fun Flower Show in the design class for June. Simply make a traditional design using flowers from your garden. Please have your entry placed by 7 p.m. We continue to request nominations for our Garden of the Month contest. Gardens must be in town and visible from the street. Please submit your nominations by ‘phone to 613267-4046 or to the SFHS web site as shown below. We were delighted to present Shirley Giesebrecht the award for May. Her little oasis is at the corner of Elmsley and Cornelia streets, highly visible when stopped at the traffic light southbound on Cornelia. The Garden of the Month sign is currently on display so take a drive by (a walk is even better) to see what can be done to create a smaller garden. Shirley will also receive a gift certificate courtesy of D & S Stone Supply. The members’ only garden tour is being rescheduled to July 13. If anyone wishes to carpool, we are meeting at the Walmart parking lot at 9 a.m. There will be a potluck of finger foods at our last stop so think of something you would like to bring. Our trips for this year have been arranged. This will be your last opportunity to sign up for the July and August tours.

EMC lifestyle - Walking into the first of Bob Mitchell’s several sprawling greenhouses, the sweet, earthy smell of ripening tomatoes takes over your senses. For a brief moment, it’s just you and the fruit. You’re filled with a sense of hominess, of nostalgia for your grandmother, or the proud memory of the first vegetable you ever nurtured. When you come back to reality, you start to look around and you can hardly believe your eyes. Row upon row of leafy tomato plants climb toward the soft, filtered light coming in from above. The greenhouse seems to stretch on forever. Little technology gets in the way of nature’s beauty; the stems grow from plasticsheathed blocks of crushed coconut in raised troughs and are clipped to small rods above. Small pipes wind along the floor, masked by green tangles of sagging vines. Every so often a bumblebee lazes by, off to pollinate another plant or return to one of the hives placed throughout the greenhouse. Mitchell, the owner and founder of SunTech Greenhouses, on Doyle Road south of Manotick, somehow fits

THE EMC - 50 - Thursday, June 13, 2013

into the greenhouse ecosystem, despite a brusque manner and a penchant for loud exclamations. The lifelong farmer moved to a dairy and cash crop farm south of Kenmore when he was six, which he farmed with his family until 1998. And then he entered a greenhouse for the first time in his life. “The smell, that was what hooked me,” he said. From that visit in September 1998, it took 11 months for Mitchell to buy the Doyle Road property, set up a greenhouse that covers a hectare, and plant 22,000 beefsteak tomato plants. “Just a starter kit,” Mitchell laughed. Today, the farm has 1.6 hectares of greenhouse facilities and produces 11 different commercial products. That includes several tomato varieties as well as eggplants, cucumbers, peppers and green beans. NATURE’S WAY

While SunTech certainly doesn’t profess to be organic or pesticide free, it makes use of what nature has to offer. A common greenhouse pest is the white fly, a tiny white bug that can multiply into the billions. As they drink the juices from the plants, they

excrete everywhere – and that can prevent the plants from getting the sunlight they need. But instead of spraying plants with chemicals, Mitchell brings in 40,000 encarsia formosa, a tiny parasitic wasp that lays its eggs in white fly eggs – essentially stopping the reproduction cycle. “You don’t pay them by the hour and they don’t miss,” Mitchell said. Bumblebees are another important part of the greenhouse ecosystem. Brought in from Windsor, Ont., Mitchell’s bees are relied upon to pollinate the tomatoes. The number of bees loose in the greenhouse directly correlates to the number of open flowers, Mitchell said. There are usually two or three bee stings a year, he said, but as the chief bee handler he has managed to escape a sting for nearly 14 years. Of course, the whole point of a greenhouse is to get around Mother Nature’s whims, and SunTech employs a complex computer system to monitor the indoor and outdoor temperatures and adjust the roof vents accordingly. The average daily temperature inside is about 19 degrees, Mitchell said, and they can harvest about 10 months of the year.

Get ready to go zip-zip-zip lining steve.newman@metroland.com

Florida, Costa Rica and Nicaragua are destinations for zip line enthusiasts. But you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to travel that far for exhilarating zip line experiences, which are growing in popularity in North America. Ownership of Logos Land Resort, just outside Cobden, is hoping a signiďŹ cant investment in its new three-leg, zip line course will bring smiles and goose bumps to many more of its customers in coming years. Challenges Unlimited Inc. is completing construction and installation of a parallel zip line course over Astrolabe Lake this month. The course warms up nicely, with the ďŹ rst zip carrying visitors 201 metres across a small bay. Zip No. 2 runs 343 metres across the middle of the lake, before the ďŹ nal 401-metre leg returns buckled-in riders back above the water. The total ride is 3,100 feet, or almost one kilometre, at speeds of up to 35 km/h, usually six metres above the water, but sometimes closer to 25. Logos Land owner Jerrold Paxtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business partner, Kevin Cahill, died last December, but not the dream to continue to improve on what Logos Land offers its customers. Facilities already in place include the water park, with its slide, splash pad, grill house, mini-golf, animal petting farm, beach and giant lake trampolines. There are also timeshare villas, motel suites, 90 recreational vehicle (RV) park and camp sites, rental RVs, 100 wilderness camp sites for trailers or tenters, and the neighbouring Oaks of Cobden golf course.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have four goals in mind,â&#x20AC;? says Logos Land director of marketing and sales Fred Glover. The ďŹ rst goal is to offer something, like the zip line course, that caters more to older youngsters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made investments in recent years for the little kids, like the petting farm and the splash pad,â&#x20AC;? says Glover. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But for older kids, as families grow up, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want them to hit the boredom curve.â&#x20AC;? The same philosophy applies to younger adults. The connection of the zip line for these potential customers also happens to coincide with the ideal weight for zip line passengers. The weight allowance runs from 75 to about 275 pounds. The second marketing goal, says Glover, is to expand Logos Landâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season, which for the longest time has been concentrated in July and August. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The zip line can be used year-round, but more practically it will certainly run in the summer, as well as in the spring and fall.â&#x20AC;? Logos Land has already experienced positives vibes about the new course. For example, response at the recent Ottawa RV Show, which attracts more than 20,000 visitors, was extremely positive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our big posters stopped them,â&#x20AC;? says Glover. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It surprised us, especially the positive verbal feedback from 40-, 50- and 60-year-olds. But weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see for sure this summer.â&#x20AC;? Glover acknowledges thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another zip line, at Chutes Coulonge, while pointing out that Logos Land Resort aspires to become a growing part of multi-activity tourist packages in the area, thus Logos Landâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third

Â&#x2122;;Vgb6c^bVahVcY7^gYh Â&#x2122;8gZVi^kZ;VgbEaVn\gdjcY Â&#x2122;G^YZi]ZKVaaZnk^Zl:megZhh Â&#x2122;EjeeZi$H^c\^c\8]^X`ZcH]dlh Â&#x2122;7^aaĂ&#x2030;hDaY;VgbBjhZjb Â&#x2122;HjcĂ&#x201C;dlZg8V[Z<^[iH]de

marketing goal. For example, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no reason tourists canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t zip over Astrolabe Lake, play golf rounds at a variety of courses in the area, see the Bonnechere Caves, zip some more in Chutes Coulonge and try some whitewater rafting or kayaking.

Five simple tips before hitting the road EMC lifestyle - Summer getaways are common indulgence in Canada and for the more than four-in-ďŹ ve of us who own, lease or ďŹ nance a vehicle, exploring the Great White North often begins with the push of a pedal. Whether your plans include cross-country road trips or a weekend exodus to the cottage, here are a few tips to keep your vehicle looking and running its best on the open road: s+EEPITCLEAN3TARTINGA road trip with a clean car is a must, but be eco-responsible. Always look for products that are designed to be tough on grease, bugs, mud and carbon deposits, while still being safe for the environment. s#HECKYOURWHEELS-AKE sure tires are road-trip ready. For better handling and mileage, swap winter tires for summer ones, or all-season types. Check the pressure of the tires before you take off by consulting the ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manual or on the side of the tire. Properly inďŹ&#x201A;ated tires improve grip on the road and

save money at the pump. s 4OP UP mUIDS .O ONE wants to be stuck on the side of the highway. Having proper levels of windshield washer ďŹ&#x201A;uid, engine oil, radiator coolant and brake ďŹ&#x201A;uid can make or break a road trip. Check the ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manual for the recommended ďŹ&#x201A;uid levels. Remember overďŹ lling your ďŹ&#x201A;uids can do just as much damage as not ďŹ lling up enough. s'ETRIDOFTHESALT!STHE temperatures rise, so does the rate of corrosion and after a full-season of battling snow and slush, the chemicals used to clear roads can eat away at a carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body. +EEPYOURCARLOOKINGAND running its best by getting a professional rust protection at least once a year. s4AKEITTOANEXPERT3TAY safe and avoid unforeseen expenses by following your carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recommended maintenance schedule.

THE EMC - 55 - Thursday, June 13, 2013

It’s hard to find that perfect listening place EMC Lifestyle – As stated in my last article, I love to listen to music, preferably live but also recorded as a second choice. And I do mean listen. I don’t often talk to others when a live musician is playing especially. Nor do I pay attention to screens (be it TV or personal devices) when someone is playing their heart and soul out to me. As most know who read my columns, I regularly attend O’Reilly’s Ale House in Perth on Tuesday evenings as Brock Zeman and Blair Michael Hogan strut their stuff and I love taking it all in. Out of respect to the performer, if I want to chat I go to the back of the bar. You get an outstanding songwriter/musician in Brock and the sweetest licks in the world from Blair. But this time of year, I make my yearly apologies to them for not attending until later because it’s hockey playoff time and I also love watching hockey. With several games on every night, I go elsewhere to watch hockey so as not to give musicians only partial attention due to some screen vying for my attention with yet another dramatic goal. So, when the game is done, I’m off to hopefully catch a bit of my live music fix, a necessity for me. There are many listening spaces that I enjoy and they’re not all public spaces. Through a mutual friend, I met a local gentleman who shares my enjoyment of music and I’ve been visiting weekly for many years. He’d always have his stereo on in the background as we’d chat about whatever. He has a cathedral ceiling where we sit and he had speakers above his kitchen cabinets as well as another set at the other end of the room on the floor. We noticed the separation on some recordings that seemed to fill the space better than others and both had remarked on it. A few weeks ago though, I noticed a far more full sound even at a low volume in our usual space and commented. My friend was pleased to see I’d noticed they’d gotten a new receiver, a subwoofer for bass and mounted new speakers on the far wall, replacing the floor models. The difference was remarkable and I must say it has become one of my favourite places to hear recorded music. The distinctive breadth of the sound from its bottom end through the middle and up to the swirling highs seem to catch my aged ears just right. You know you’re with true friends when you can just sit there and listen…no chatter necessary. I’ve written before of another of my favourite listening spaces and this past weekend was able to revisit our camp and enjoy my outdoor speakers, with their 40-foot separation while enjoying the first campfires of the season. I keep my music volume there low enough to allow Mother Nature’s natural “soundtrack” to blend with the recordings. Tree frogs, crickets, loons, owls all join in to create a beautiful, unique blend with whatever I have on. It’s interesting also to compare older recordings’ primitive separations of the right and left channels to the more refined blends newer technology avails. I spend many an hour listening fireside during the warmer months and through the cold winters dream of getting back there. There aren’t many “listening rooms” out there. By that I mean

somewhere where bar chatter doesn’t take away from being able to hear and appreciate the lyrics for singer/ songwriter presentations, which tend to be my usual genre. The Cameron House on Queen West in Toronto is one of those unique establishments that lend themselves to listening as does Hugh’s Room, also in Toronto. The Branch Restaurant and Texas Grill in Kemptville prides itself in being a good place to listen (and the food is wonderfully creative and local). I also enjoy Fiddlehead’s atrium in Perth for Sunday Brunch Jazz hosted by Clay Young. I’m always amazed this room isn’t packed to overflowing. I’ve got to admit though, I’ve become spoiled while hosting our house concerts for the past 10 years. Until one experiences it, having someone play live in your living room for friends and family who are quiet, hanging on every word the performer offers, one might not understand why this is still my favourite. That intimacy is infectious and also noticeable on how most musicians rise to the occasion, offering that much more in stories and song, knowing they have an attentive, appreciative audience. I am gratified hearing someone rave about their first experience. We’ve recently moved our house concerts to a larger venue to avail more attending and my body is grateful for not having to move furniture any longer but I do miss the more intimate space of our living room. Being able to allow more people to experience musicians they would rarely be able to see locally and hear the appreciative comments following is a trade off I’m willing to accept. Time to sign off as I have to head out and will enjoy again another favourite listening room, my car. I can listen at any volume I want, utilize the knobs to bring up my preferred listening sound equalization for any music I choose and drive for miles. Now go enjoy your day, hopefully listening somewhere to some of your favourites. Upcoming events July 19, 20, 21: Perth’s Stewart Park Festival.

Fit Minds Cognitive Health Products Inc. Fit Minds Cognitive Health Products Inc. is a Canadian company providing professional and family caregivers with tools and resources to maintain and improve the brain health of individuals suffering from Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease and other forms of dementia. The Fit Mindsâ&#x201E;˘ products and programs focus on cognitive stimulation and interaction as a preferred method to promote brain health. Over thirty years of brain research has shown us that brains can continue to learn, grow and change throughout the

life span of the individual. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) ACTIVE study done with almost 3000 individuals over the age of 65 showed that brain training has a positive impact on information processing, memory and the ability to focus. There have been many other studies showing that cognitive exercise can enhance brain fitness in both the healthy brain and the brain under attack by diseases like Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and other forms of dementia. In particular, Dr. Aimee Specter of the University College of London in the United King-

dom has shown that cognitive exercise can be as effective as dementia drugs in the treatment of individuals suffering from Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease. Applying this neuroscience research to the problem of cognitive decline, Fit Minds Inc. has created the unique, patent-pending InterAct â&#x201E;˘ Program. The InterActâ&#x201E;˘ Program contains a comprehensive brain workout organized around five areas of cognition: Language and Music, Visual/Spatial Orientation, Memory, Critical Thinking and Computation. Each session

plan contains exercises and activities in each of the five areas of cognition to provide enjoyable interaction that engages and challenges each individual. The InterActâ&#x201E;˘ Program can be used in a one-on-one setting or with a small group. Most sessions last between 45 minutes to an hour and can be tailored to many different levels of ability. The InterActâ&#x201E;˘ Program is also great as a volunteer or family resource when visiting with their loved one. Fit Minds Inc. has also developed the Family Caregiver program which

trains family members to use the InterActâ&#x201E;˘ Program to support and maintain the brain health of their loved ones. As well, we have focused the Family Caregiver program on supporting and maintaining the relationship between the care-provider and the care-receiver. We believe that while dementia changes family relationships, it shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t end them.
