Carleton Place ready to show true patriot love



EMC Events – Wrap yourself in the Maple Leaf flag, Carleton Place! On Monday, July 1 – Canada Day – celebrate the country’s 146th birthday at Riverside Park with family, friends and neighbours. The municipality will host a fantastic lineup of festivities, including live musical entertainment, numerous vendors, hot and cold treats, an abundance of children’s activities and a topnotch fireworks display. “We’ve upped our children’s activities this year,” said Jessica Smith, community programmer, “and we’re hoping it’s an incentive for families to stay throughout the day.” The much-anticipated fireworks display – the best in Lanark County – has been lengthened. “Families will be amazed for a longer period of time,” said Smith with a laugh. Thousands of people are expected to attend Monday’s rain or shine celebration. “It’s an exciting day for our community – the country,” said Smith. Admission is free. The master of ceremonies is Jack Denovan. The main stage entertainment begins at noon with the Carleton Place and District Community Band. The volunteer organization of musicians performs for one hour. At 1 p.m. the Children’s Bicycle Parade takes place. Kids are invited to decorate their bicycle, tricycle, scooter or wagon and join Mayor Wendy LeBlanc and Citizen of the Year Ronette Vines (parade marshals) for a stroll through the park – before stopping at the main stage for the opening ceremonies: singing of O Canada, greetings from LeBlanc and Vines and cutting of the birthday cake. “Each participant goes home with a bag of goodies,” said Smith. No registration is required. Participants simply meet at the main stage at 12:45 p.m.

Highway 43 Memorial ride kicks off Saturday in Perth By LAURIE WEIR

EMC News – Homeless veterans will never be forgotten if the Canadian Army Veterans (CAV) have anything to do with it. For the second year, the 1 CAV Sicily Motorcycle Unit of Morrisburg will be in Perth to kick off their ride – Operation Leave: Leave the Streets Behind – that hits legion branches Highway 43 on their way back home to Branch 48 in Morrisburg. Bill “Justus” Aitken is the vice president of this branch of riders. As a war vet, this ride touches a little piece of him – as it does with all members of the unit. “I can relate to the anxiety issues and depression… I was 24 years in the military and I get how (homelessness) happens… how it can come to that,” he said. “It’s not an easy thing. Individuals have to take control and have that need to change their lives so they can feel better.” The CAV’s goal is to help other vets. “This event is not to take



away from our fallen soldiers from Afghanistan.” Aitken said this ride’s donations will go directly towards helping families and it will go to the Homeless Veterans Assistance Fund. Last year, they raised close to $5,000. “There are so many issues for vets once they come home,” he said. “So many people don’t get that.” What the public may not know, he added, is that over 2,400 solders were wounded or dismembered who came back from Afghanistan. “What happens to them?” “Initially, they get treated for injuries, given information on what’s happening and where to go for help,” Aitken said. But that’s not enough. “Vets helping vets. That’s the real thing happening here” with this ride, he added. “Those we have asked for sponsorship or to get involved have been great. They love helping and donating and that the money is going to war vets and their families.”

Ride throughout region On Saturday, riders will gather at the Canadian Tire store in Perth, on Highway 7 for their ride through Perth to Highway 43. The route will take participants through Burritts Rapids, Kemptville, and then to Chesterville where they will break for lunch at the legion. Following that, the group will head to Alexandria, hit Lancaster on Highway 34, circle back to Morrisburg via Highway 2 at the Long Sault Parkway. “In Morrisburg, we will be having a barbecue dinner at the Legion (Branch 48) and we should be there about 4 p.m.,” Aitken said. On display at the Morrisburg Legion will be a replica of the Portraits of Honour mural. A copy of artist Dave Sopha’s piece was reproduced on canvas and will be available for viewing at the Morrisburg Legion throughout the day. The original 10-foot by 50-foot hand-painted mural depicting soldiers who died in Afghanistan took 6,500 hours to paint.

Five historic homes on display in Merrickville House and Garden Tour July 13 By ASHLEY KULP

The eighth annual Merrickville House and Garden Tour is set to unfold Saturday, July 13. This year, five heritage homes and their gardens are on the schedule, including historic Manor House, above. Located at 905 St. Lawrence St., this home was owned by the Mirick family, the founders of Merrickville. Another home to be featured on the tour is the Molloy home, a two-storey Victorian abode at 105 Water St. Photos by ASHLEY KULP

EMC Events – Take a peek inside some of Merrickville’s most historic homes and lush gardens Saturday, July 13 when the eighth annual Merrickville House and Garden Tour returns. The tour, once again being presented by Holy Trinity Anglican Church, runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and this year visitors will be invited into five of the village’s lovely homes. “The lineup this year is unbelievable,� remarked tour organizer Linda Nash. “I cannot believe how lucky I was this year.� According to Nash, all five of the homes on the tour are heritage and accompanying each are “magnificent gardens.� “The whole tour is like a step back in time,� she noted. Due to the fact that each home also has a garden to explore, Nash indicated she didn’t seek out separate gardens. “It’s going to take people all day to see these houses. They’re so interesting,� she commented. Included in that list is Merrickville’s historic Manor House at 905 St. Lawrence St. Owned by David Luxton and Laura Brown, this regal stone home’s claim to fame is that it was owned by the Mirick family, founders of Merrickville, in 1844 and is known as the Harry McLean House by locals. “Current owners David, is the chairman of the Tulip Festival in Ottawa and Laura is a sculptor and artist,� Nash explained. The three-storey structure was completely renovated in 2012. “They left no stone unturned for redoing this house,� she said. “It’s been totally revamped from the first to the third floor.� An example of Georgian architecture, one of the home’s most unique features is winding staircase that leads to a ‘Romeo and Juliet’ style gallery at the top. It is decorated exclusively in fine art and antiques. “I’m so excited (to have this on the tour),� Nash stated. “You could be there all day just looking around that one house.� On the day of the tour, copies of Teresa Charland’s biography on McLean, ‘Building an Empire. “Big Pants� Harry F. McLean and his sons of Martha,’ will be available for purchase. Morning Mist Manor (745 Heri-

view of the river,� Nash said. “It’s another great example of late Georgian buildings in Ontario.� The tour will also take visitors to 105 Lewis St., the Jane Tynsdale House, which was constructed in 1861. It is a two-storey limestone house but was built to look like a storey and a half. “The reason for that is that taxes were higher on a two-storey back then,� Nash stated. “People hesitated at wanting to pay higher taxes, so they made homes like that.� The Tynsdale home has also been lovingly restored and boasts original floors. The windows and roof trim reflect the time period in which it was built. Mirick Home, owned by Joelle Schmid and Nick Previsich is an example of Edwardian architecture, with red and yellow brick detailing. “It’s been renovated with a combination of modern and classic interior design with modern and contemporary pieces mixed with fabulous antiques,� Nash commented. The wraparound veranda and expansive garden are other features. “My jaw dropped when I walked into this house. I love it,� she said. The final home included in the tour is the Molloy Home (105 Water St.), owned by Shirley and Timothy Molloy. This two-storey Victorian home was constructed in 1890 and bears wide porches and gingerbread trim indicative of the time period. It was featured on the tour four years ago and is back by popular demand. “There are only a few houses in Ontario like this and it is split in the middle so you can enter the home from both sides of the veranda,� Nash remarked. “It has two stairways, one at the front and one at the back.� Packed with early Canadian and Victorian antiques, Nash said the property has won several awards for its gardens as well.

UCDSB celebrates National Aboriginal Day all year

TOUR Popular event Almost immediately following the tour each year, Nash begins planning for the next. She said she tends to look for older, heritage homes “because that’s what people want to tour.” “Every year I like to put one modern house in, but as it turns out this year, they are all heritage,” Nash stated. “...The nice thing about this year’s tour is you can walk the entire tour if you want,” she added. Over the past eight years, it’s become a popular tradition throughout Merrickville, with people coming from across Lanark, Leeds and Grenville as well as the Ottawa region. “People start calling in January to find out when tickets are going on sale, so it’s definitely becoming one of the highlights of the summer for Merrickville,” Nash said. “It brings people, com-

Help eliminate violence against women and children in Canada at July 5 fundraiser EMC News – On June 21, Tears4Justice began their very powerful journey across Canada from the east coast to the west coast. The journey is in honour of all missing and murdered Aboriginal women and children, along the Highway of Tears, and all women and children across Canada. The group’s goal is to raise awareness on the many issues regarding the root causes and the lack of resources available to protect Aboriginal women and children. According to Canadian government statistics Indigenous women are five to seven times more likely than other women to die as the result of violence. The

Native Women’s Association of Canada has documented more than 580 cases of missing and murdered Indigenous women in Canada, most within the last three decades. Because of gaps in police and government reporting, the actual numbers may be much higher. Aboriginal women make up four percent of the female population. Tears4Justice is a non-profit group of grassroots volunteers, family members of missing or murdered loved ones and volunteer social activists who fight for justice on their behalf. On July 5, please join members of our community in welcoming these dedicated people

and supporting this important journey at Zion-Memorial United Church (37 Franklin St.) in Carleton Place at 6:30 p.m. Your support is greatly needed as Tears4Justice is totally reliant on volunteers and donations. For more information, please contact Erin Lee-Todd, Lanark County Interval House at 613878-5700. Sponsors for this event are: Amnesty International Canada, KAIROS: Canadian Ecumenical Justice Initiatives, Lanark County Interval House, Lanark County Neighbours for Truth and Reconciliation and the Social Concerns Committee of Carleton Place.

Development of regional economic corporation to be studied by United Counties on the possible opportunities and benefits of regional economic development. The chamber has researched out to other economic development corporations in Ontario and supports the creation of one in Leeds and Grenville. Counties and OPSEU Local 494 sign agreement Counties council has signed an agreement with its social services, child care and social housing workers represented by the Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU). The two-year agreement for the OPSEU Local 494 employees provides a 1.75 per cent increase in each 2013 and 2014 along with minor modifications in the benefit plan. Stewardship council seeking support Leeds-Grenville Stewardship Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Karen Brown outlined ongoing projects and initiatives to counties council at its regular meeting June 20. The local stewardship council is a community-based, volunteer group focusing on environmental enhancement projects. In

SAFETY TIPS Oil Lamps: Oil lamps or lanterns provide excellent light but can be a fire hazard if placed too close to combustibles. Keep oil lamps away from combustibles and out of the wind. Make sure they are kept in a secure place where they cannot be knocked over. Refill the lamps outdoors or away from combustibles and other people.

Leeds Grenville, some of its initiatives include the Leeds Community Pasture Project, where solar-powered water sources have been created for livestock, upgrading of Kemptville Creek, tree planting, and sustainable forestry. Working with schoolchildren to increase environmental awareness and education is another key focus. A partnership with the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority (RVCA) was recently formed. Stewardship councils were supported by the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) until April 2013. The local council is now seeking other sources of funding, said Brown. She asked counties council to consider supporting the stewardship council through funding or office space. Warden Ron Holman explained the budget for 2013 is set and Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request will be considered in 2014. Campbell puts name forward to FCM Counties council is supporting Mel

Campbell, Reeve of Augusta Township, in becoming a Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) standing committee member in 2013 and 2014. Campbell and counties CAO Andy Brown said it would be advantageous to the United Counties to have a voice at the FCM, a federation which focuses on federal matters such as economic development, taxation and funding. Weed control options studied Following a recommendation from the public works committee earlier this month, counties council has asked staff to proceed with a control option study for noxious and nuisance weeds. The report will help determine effective control measures of weed infestations and a strategy to keep noxious weeds from spreading. Results from test plots, including one along County Road 28, will be included in the study. Effective weed control data from other jurisdictions will also be included in the report.

Chief administrative officer (CAO) Andy Brown said there will be an investigation into any benefits, disadvantages, and costs in forming a countieswide corporation. The study, expected by November, will also ensure no duplication of services or elimination of local municipal economic development programs.

Stop dumping trash on our rural roads DEAR EDITOR: I have noticed recently that our beautiful rural roads have become dumping grounds for almost any type of trash. I have seen mattresses, appliances, old tires, tons of discarded fast food wrappers, plastic bottles, cans, coffee cups and pretty much anything you can imagine just left or tossed on the side of the road. It seems that people just pull over, have lunch and then just drive away leaving all of their garbage behind. The litterbugs responsible for tossing trash know who you are and maybe it is time to dispose of these items at a proper designated area such as

the dump or a garbage can. I find this very disheartening and sad to see we are so fortunate to live in such a lovely scenic area that is fast becoming an eyesore littered with garbage. Please make an effort to take your garbage with you, dispose of it properly and leave our beautiful rural roads the way I enjoy seeing them, litter free. Thank you. Fran Bryerton Almonte

COMMENTARY Be alert on roads, waterways this Canada Day EMC Editorial – It’s been heralded as the official start to summer, but don’t cloud your summer before it begins with poor driving habits. The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) recently announced they will be cracking down on aggressive driving this Canada Day long weekend on roads, trails and waterways across the province. So if you are someone who is impatient or angry while driving or who tends to display colourful vocabulary while behind the wheel, listen up. Aggressive driving doesn’t just mean speeding, which could be considered one of the most common faults among drivers, but also following vehicles too closely, making improper lane changes, weaving in and out of lanes and having a general disregard for the rules of the road and waterways, will be targeted. Don’t think if you aren’t an aggressive driver that the OPP won’t be on the lookout for other poor driving habits. They will also be watching for impaired and distracted driving seatbelts, as well as ensuring you have personal flotation devices on board when boating. According to the OPP, the public awareness campaigns they have been undertaking are making a difference. At this time last year, there were 173 fatalities on roads, waterways and trails, while that number is down to 110 this year. Perhaps that shows that people are taking the law and their own lives seriously. We all have some bad driving habits we’d like to get rid of and being forced to make a change might not be a bad thing.

Father was so overworked and overtired this time of year EMC Lifestyle – Would he topple over and fall out of the rocker? Would he hit the floor with a thud, and maybe bang his head on the oven door? I was sitting at the kitchen table. I was alone. My sister Audrey said she had better things to do than waste time looking through Eaton’s catalogue. The three brothers were doing what they did every night in the summer... they were outside throwing balls, using their sling shots, or shooting off their B.B. guns. Mother was in the garden. It was just me and Father in the kitchen. The sun was still streaking through the west window, and the kitchen had been redded up, and bedtime was a couple hours away. I sat very quietly watching Father. He looked smaller, I thought. Maybe it was the way he was sleeping in the rocker. He didn’t hear his pipe fall to the floor, and the Ottawa Farm Journal lay across his knees unopened. His chin was on his chest, and I could see him breathing as his plaid shirt gently rose and fell. It had been a long day for Father. Chores were done before sun-up. The plow and other farm pieces of machinery had been moved on the stone boat

to the back fields across the Bonnechere and over the West Hill weeks before. By the time Father was finished with the morning chores, the milking done, and eaten his breakfast, he would be ready to take the team across the shallowest part of the Bonnechere and head over to the back fields. He would have picked up the basket of lunch Mother had made the night before, and we wouldn’t see him again until it was time to come back home for the evening chores. And so I sat and watched Father, and wondered if he would have enough strength left to even get out of his clothes and fall into bed. Dust from the fields still clung to his face. He had taken off his work boots and his heavy wool socks were covered in soil and bits and pieces of grass. I knew if he rolled down the legs of his overalls, there would be more of the same trapped in the folds. I could see the edge of his combination underwear showing under his plaid shirt, and I wondered if I dared go and straighten up his head, so that he would be more comfortable. But of course, that would waken him from his much Vice President & Regional Publisher Mike Mount 613-283-3182, ext. 104

needed sleep. I wondered why he didn’t go to bed right after his supper, as I sat and watched his worn-out body curled uncomfortably in the old rocker. But then, he wouldn’t be able to check on the barns, which he never failed to do before falling into bed. No, this was Father’s routine, and nothing was going to change it this time of year. There were fields to plow and cultivate, and grain to plant, and scant time to do it in, as Father tried to outsmart the weather. And so, from dawn to dusk, Father like every other farmer around us, was tied to the habits of the season. Father wasn’t a big man. The three brothers were all taller by several inches. My brother Emerson towered over him. But Father was wiry, and as straight News Editors: Laurie Weir, Joe Morin, Ashley Kulp REPORTERS: Stacey Roy, Tara Gesner, Desmond Devoy, Kelly Kent DISTRIBUTION: Lori Sommerdyk, 613-284-0124 ,ext. 27 CLASSIFIEDS/REGIONAL ROUNDUP: Fax: 613-283-5909 Judy Michaelis Email: Lee Ann Gilligan Email: Jennifer Coughlin Email:

as a die. As as I sat and watched him, I was scarcely breathing and making not a sound, so that I wouldn’t disturb his rest, I thought he looked so much older than he did before summer planting began. He was always so much more tired after supper this time of year. The heat of the day was heavy on him, and even though it was summer, he still wore his plaid shirts with the long sleeves. But he did give up his felt hat with the ear lugs, changing to his old battered straw hat, with the wide black headband, marred with the sweat off his brow. I sat quietly, watching Father breathe, not a muscle stirring in either of us. I was overcome with a deep sadness, as I looked at him in the rocking chair, his feet in their usual place on the turneddown oven door. And I wondered, can someone die from overwork? What if one day he didn’t come home from the back fields? What would happen to us? The sun had gone down behind the grape arbour, and the kitchen was darkening, but yet there was daylight, and I was still alone at the old pine table, Eaton’s catalogue unopened in front of me, and with my eyes never leaving Father.

He would stay there until everyone came in from outside, banging doors, and scraping their feet on the mat, and tossing their bats and balls into the box beside the stove. Mother would stop a moment in front of Father and then she would do what she did every night this time of year. She would tap Father on the shoulder...she may have to do it several times to bring him out of his deep sleep. He would slowly raise his head, and look around the kitchen as if he were lost. I would move myself away from the table and go over to the rocker and pick his pipe up off the floor, and put the Ottawa Farm Journal on the bake table. Father would shuffle over to the bedroom door off the kitchen, and he would turn to Everett and tell him to be sure to check the barns before he went to bed. Soon I would hear the creaking of the bed springs, and if I listened closely from my spot at the kitchen table, I would hear a deep sigh, and then the soft snores as Father settled down his tired body for the night. It was just another day, no different than the one before, and no different than the one coming after. • Advertising rates and terms and conditions are according to the rate card in effect at time advertising published. • The advertiser agrees that the publisher shall not be liable for damages arising out of errors in advertisements beyond the amount charged for the space actually occupied by that portion of the advertisement in which the error occurred, whether such error is due to negligence of its servants or otherwise... and there shall be no liability for non-insertion of any advertisement beyond the amount charged for such advertisement. • The advertiser agrees that the copyright of all advertisements prepared by the Publisher be vested in the Publisher and that those advertisements cannot be reproduced without the permission of the Publisher. • The Publisher reserves the right to edit, revise or reject any advertisement.

Local health unit begins weekly Upper Canada District School Board beach water sampling for summer approves budget for 2013-14 EMC News – The Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit has once again begun weekly water sampling of the area’s public bathing beaches. The beaches will be monitored weekly throughout the summer season until Aug. 30. This year the following public swimming areas will be monitored: • In Lanark County: Almonte Beach, Dalhousie Lake, Centennial Beach, Riverside Beach, Lanark Beach, Pakenham Beach, Rideau Ferry Yacht Club, Robertson Lake Beach, Smiths Falls Jr and Sr. • In Leeds and Grenville: Sand Bay Charleston Lake County Park, St. Lawrence Park, Lyn Valley Conservation Area, South Crosby Beach, Portland Campbell Street Beach, Foley Mountain Beach, Joel Stone Beach, Kendrick’s Park, Lower Beverley Township Park, Bellamy Park, Kelly’s Beach, Merrickville, Westport Sand Lake

lected from each beach. The results will then be analyzed for the presence of E. coli (Escherichia coli) bacteria. If the results exceed the bathing water standard of 100 E. coli, the beach will be posted with an “WARNING Unsafe for Bathing” sign indicating that the level of bacteria in the water may pose a risk to your health if you choose to swim. This information will appear on our website and in radio reports. This year you can also follow the beach posting results by using Facebook and Twitter. Updates will be posted Friday mornings by 9 a.m. Research has shown that when people are swimming at beaches where the water has a high E. coli level, there is a direct relationship with an increase in ear, eye, nose and throat infections in swimmers. The bathing beach will remain posted until test results indicate that the water quality meets the bathing beach water standard. To Testing process help you better understand Every week a total of five why beaches are posted, the water samples will be col- health unit has developed

an information card that is available at any health unit office or township office that has a bathing beach. It is also available on our website at Beaches_Info_Card.pdf. Bacterial water quality is one parameter used to determine water quality. Other variables, which are assessed and evaluated, are the presence of a blue green algae bloom, accidental spills that may pollute the water and any safety issue that could impact on the health of the bathers. At any time if these variables are believed to have an impact on the beach’s safety, the beach will be posted as “Unsafe for Bathing”. Posting information is available on the health unit website (http://www. beach_results.htm), on Facebook at www.facebook. com/LGLHealthUnit or on Twitter at LGLbeaches or by calling the Health Action Line at 1-800-660-5853. Submitted by the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit.

EMC News – The following are highlights from the Upper Canada District School Board’s (UCDSB) regular meeting which took place June 19 at the board office in Brockville. The UCDSB approved a budget of $345,119,287 in operating expenses and capital of $28,729,025 plus all additional amounts subsequently allocated by the ministry. Budget highlights include: • The Information Technology Services budget for 2013-14 is $5.63 million. This represents a decline of approximately $0.05 million or 0.9 per cent year over year. • The director’s office budget for 2013-14 is $2,899,336. • The proposed budget for teacher support services is $1,270,126. This allocation goes toward the salaries of staff who deliver professional learning across the district and who administrate district and ministry educational programs. • The proposed budget for programs is $12,916,058. • The proposed budget for special education 2013-14 is $45,956,395. • The trustee’s budget for 2013-14 is $424,517. Link Crew The board also received a re-

port on the impact of Link Crew on grade 9 students, grade 12 Link leaders, teacher coordinators and the culture of schools. Link Crew is an orientation and year-long program that is designed to ease the transition of grade 9 students from elementary to high school. It does this by: • Providing a welcoming and fund Orientation Day • Establishing relationships between grade 9 students and their grade 12 Link leaders • Providing a grade 12 Peer Mentoring Structure that supports academic and social success • Providing an environment of caring through Link leader connections and support • Fostering a sense of belonging • Encouraging grade 9 participation in school activities Among the qualitative findings, grade 9 students had this to say: • “Link Crew helped me not be so scared.” • “I knew that I could turn to my Link leader to get help with any problem that I might face.” • “My peer mentor helped me understand my schedule.”

While grade 12 students said: • “I developed a sense of responsibility.” • “I became a role model for grade 9 students.” • “I took the course because I wanted to make a difference.” Nine recommendations will be implemented by administration, including: • Best practices from across the board need to be shared and implemented. • Principals need to take a leadership role in communicating the importance of collective ownership of grade 9 students. • Principals should develop a timetable model that allows time for meaningful connections between grade 9 students. Use of personal electronic devices in classrooms and school The board approved the following policy: In recognition of their differing interests, abilities, personalities and learning preferences, the Upper Canada District School Board encourages its students to select and use the supplies, equipment, devices and other resources they need to learn effectively at school and at home.

Heat waves endanger millions of Ontarians living with lung disease EMC News – For the 2.4 million (one in five) Ontarians living with a serious lung disease such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or lung cancer, this week’s extreme heat isn’t just uncomfortable – it can be dangerous. The risk of experiencing serious breathing difficulties increases dramatically during extreme weather, including the severe heat forecast for this week. The effects of smog, heat and humidity can sometimes be felt well before a smog alert is issued. The lungs become more sensitive, causing flare-ups that often mean a visit to the emergency department or even a stay in hospital. Even people who do not have lung disease may experience difficulty breathing in extreme heat conditions or when smog levels are high. During very hot and humid weather, when outdoor air quality is poor, the Ontario Lung Association recommends that you: • Stay indoors in an air-conditioned place with good indoor air quality; • Keep your blinds and curtains closed to keep out the sun’s heat. At night, if you don’t have air-conditioning and outdoor air pollution is low, open your windows to let the cool air in; • Listen to air quality and humidity Submitted photo (Humidex) advisories; • Keep outdoor activity to a minimum and consider exercising indoors EMC News – The Beach House in Perth held an open cancer research. Pictured are Nancy James, Alissa in a cool, clean environment. Schedule outdoor activity at a time when heat house last month where $700 was raised for breast Ballantyne, Tracey Stead and Chrystine Moreau.

More musical tales from the belly of the big city So our wander around downtown Toronto brought us some memorable musical moments, some new friends and venues to check out again. Upcoming events Sam Ferrara pulled it off beautifully. Very tasty. As we enjoyed their set, an older woman entered, quickly quipped with the band between songs and headed further into the bar to where we were seated and asked if she could join us. At the break, as we chatted, her eyes expanded to saucers as I told her we were from Perth. Right here in the heart of multicultural Toronto, this lass tells us she grew up in Westport and still has a cabin near there. She had been up to Festival of the Maples in Perth this year and we compared notes on who we knew in common. Janet Goodfellow apparently left Westport at 18 years of age, now lives in the Kensington area, and the Rattlesnake Choir recently surprised her by playing in her home for her 70th birthday. She asked me to put in a good word (and a CD) to Seamus Cowan at the Cove Inn for Rattlesnake Choir and I’ll be doing just that. Small world… We moved on, walking up Augusta St. and turning right on College where we entered The Free Times Cafe to catch someone we’d seen many times at the Ontario Council of Folk Festival Conferences we attend. We were there to see the Russell Leon Band and were tickled upon arrival to see a musician friend we hadn’t seen in years was opening. Roman Riccio is a singer/songwriter of true musical lineage. His father Pat Riccio Jr. was musical director and keyboard player for Anne Murray and his grandfather was a wonderful saxophone player who had his own Pat Riccio Orchestra in Toronto when I was growing up. It was nice to see Roman plying his trade again, this time backed vocally by Caitlin September. It was quite enjoyable as was Russell Leon. I always feel at home in this venue though I don’t get there often. It’s always special. I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention having run into a friend, one of Toronto’s longstanding promoter/publicists, not at one but three of the music events we attended. Richard Flohil was publicist for Downchild Blues Band for 39 years and was the creative genius who brought BB King to Canada for the first time as well as many other greats. I seem to run into him whenever I’m in Toronto. Case in point: When I would arrive on rare Monday nights to the Orbit Room upstairs on College in Toronto to hear Sisters Euclid, one of “guitar-for-hire” Kevin Breit’s bands who would start at 10:30 p.m., most times, there would be Richard. He often comes up to Stewart Park Festival “because he loves the intimacy of it.” He’s currently writing a book of his memoirs which I can’t wait to read. Not bad for someone being 79 years young.

Sunday, June 29: At 7:30 p.m., St. Paul’s United Church in Perth, presents an amazing 40-voice Toronto women’s choir, Cantores Celestes, who are kicking off their 25th anniversary celebrations by performing at St. Paul’s

and whose own choir director Brad Mills raves about this choir. July 19, 20, 21: The 23rd annual Stewart Park Festival in Perth. Support live music everywhere.



on the road, night after night. A bonus came when the Wailers introduced musical friends from the East Coast – Bathurst, New Brunswick – Barry Cooke on keys and vocals and Marc Doucet on guitar who added nicely to the mix and had both sat in on previous recordings. Maple Blues Award winner – Shirley Jackson joined for a few tunes on sax and vocals which was pretty sweet, too. The highlight for me though was this: Just as they were setting up, an old acquaintance strolled on in. Paul DeLong has been an indemand drummer for years and played Stewart Park Festival backing Carlos Del Junco and others, has previously played with Kim Mitchell, Doug Riley, Dominic Troiano, and Tom Scott, to name a few. In recent years he’s played musical theatre, doing the Lion King, Hairspray, Rent and Hair in the US and Canada. He shared his excitement at being there because he now teaches at Humber College, where all the Wailers met in the music program. He was so thrilled to be there to watch Lindsay and how far the band has come. I’ve seen them for the past three years and I’ve got to agree, I just can’t believe how great a sound and show these players have put together. Whew! They’re coming to Stewart Park Festival this year so you’ve got a great opportunity to catch one of Canada’s up and coming great blues bands. It was especially a treat to see Paul sit in during some of the evening when Lindsay got up to play some smoking electric guitar (hey, it was her birthday and she wanted to show us her new toy)! Jesse Whiteley sat in on keys too, which was the icing on the cake for that evening. After surviving two days of intense meetings it was great to be able to wander late Saturday afternoon from our hotel, relaxing through back streets over to a hole in the wall pub I’ve heard about for years but never had an opportunity to visit. We strolled west from the hotel and ended up in Kensington Market, one of the true epicentres of multiculturalism in all its varied colours, tastes, smells and soundscapes. Graffiti’s is on Baldwin, near Augusta, and isn’t very big but has some wonderful talent flowing through it. We lucked in on hearing Rattlesnake Choir. Actually they’re normally a five-piece but we were entertained heartily by John Borra – singer/songwriter/ guitarist who’s past has seen him doing time in the punk scene as a kid, later playing with Ron Sexsmith and Jim Cuddy’s band before heading to more independent roots interests. Fiddle-master Miranda Mulholland (Bowfire, Belle Starr, among others) also provides vocals to Borra’s lead. Now how many times do you walk into a bar and witness a percussion player pull out and effectively utilize cheese graters, a set of three slinkys or a singing saw (the edge of a bent handsaw being bowed)? Well, percussionist

EMC Lifestyle – I don’t know about you but often its unique musical moments that I remember most and on a recent trip to Toronto, I happened onto several. A relatively short streetcar ride took us from our hotel to the unique Cameron House, (northwest corner of Queen St. W and Cameron St.) where Corin Raymond & The Sundowners (Treasa Levasseur – accordion, piano, vocals; David Baxter – guitar, mandolin, vocals; Brian Kobayakawa – upright bass) were playing for their weekly 6 to 8 p.m. gig. Corin established some notoriety this past year by totally funding his latest double CD – Paper Nickels (complete with 144-page booklet outlining the caper) with Canadian Tire (CT) money. He found a recording studio willing to take CT money at par and, through an incredible response of CTC money donated from fans across the country, all via social media, including TV and radio interviews across North America, he was able to record some of his favourite songs written by like-minded musicians. Those troubadours who write, play and promote their own music wherever they can, without the luxury of record company support or radio play. Corin is a songwriter of major proportions. His last CD in 2009, entitled There Will Always Be A Small Time, was my favourite that year and I continually hear other troubadours performing his songs in their set. We were lucky to catch them as they announced this was their last Thursday gig at the Cameron for a while as they were on the road most of the summer. I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the wonderful guitar work by David Baxter and all the tasty additions by Treasa and Brian. It’s always a memorable experience. While at the Cameron, I ran into Tom Parker who I’ve seen in various groups over the years including The Backstabbers, Lickin’ Good Fried and most recently Tom Parker & the American Pour. Both our roots are based in Owen Sound in that my parents used to dance to his grandparents band there in their courtship. It was in this same locale a few years ago I actually shared this historical family anecdote with my daughter and was able to introduce her to Tom. Tom introduced me to Devin Cuddy, Jim Cuddy of Blue Rodeo’s son, who I’ve heard play piano several times sitting in with other groups at the Cameron. Might I suggest you check this young man out for his own abilities because I know you’ll be as impressed as I’ve been. A quick trip got us back to Monarch’s Pub, in the Delta Chelsea (soon to become the Eaton Chelsea) where the 24th St Wailers were just back from an western Tour and ready to unwind and celebrate drummer Lindsay Beaver’s birthday.

Virtually everyone has memories of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II EMC Lifestyle – It seems every year is an anniversary of some significance for Queen Elizabeth II. Hardly surprising given the fact she has been on the throne for 61 years and five months. She is Head of State of the United Kingdom and 15 other Commonwealth realms including Canada. No matter where you live I believe it is safe to say Queen Elizabeth is the most familiar face on the planet. Her lengthy reign is now closing in on the all-time record for a British monarch set by her great, great grandmother Queen Victoria who died in 1901 at age 81. Victoria reigned for 63 years and seven months. That is the longest tenure for any female monarch in history. Queen Elizabeth seems ageless. Her husband and consort Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, just turned 92. He continues to suffer through significant health problems. Although her schedule has been somewhat reduced in recent times the Queen continues to maintain a busy public life that belies her 87 years. Three weeks ago, while the Duke of Edinburgh was undergoing exploratory surgery in a London clinic, his wife visited the new headquarters of the venerable British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) in Central London. I am an unashamed Monarchist. Not surprising perhaps considering that I was born the same year a young Princess Elizabeth succeeded her father King George VI who succumbed to lung cancer at the young age of 56. Like most spouses, my wife Kathleen and I don’t see eye-to-eye on every subject. She is more of a Republican than I am. In other words she is less supportive

of the institution of the monarchy. Although I believe her opinion has changed somewhat based on our many visits to the UK and the obvious importance this tradition holds for the island nation. The economic impact of the monarchy is hugely significant. Last year major celebrations were held to mark Queen Elizabeth’s ascension to the throne 60 years earlier. The exact date was Feb. 6, 1952 the day of her father’s untimely passing. The observances included a 1,000boat pageant on the River Thames in Central London. The next day there was a massively attended Diamond Jubilee concert outside Buckingham Palace, the Queen’s London residence. Hundreds of thousands packed ‘The Mall’, the main boulevard leading to the palace, wearing royal masks, waving Union flags and cheering wildly. A star-studded cast of musicians including Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Elton John (both knighted by the Queen at different times) and American singer Stevie Wonder performed and a spectacular fireworks display wrapped up the spectacular. If you like long-running anniversaries, Queen Elizabeth’s is the prototype! Coronation The year 2013 marks the 60th anniversary of her coronation. The event in 1953 was the biggest public spectacle in the British Isles since the end of the Second World War just eight years earlier. The people of Great Britain were still living on rations at the time and went to considerable trouble to hoard enough precious foodstuffs to provide for coronation cakes and celebratory meals.


The actual ceremony was held on June 2, 1953 at Westminster Abbey. In front of more than 8,000 guests, including prime ministers and heads of state from around the Commonwealth, Queen Elizabeth II took the coronation oath and was formally crowned. Shouts of “God Save the Queen” echoed through the streets of historic London amid the firing of salutes in honour of the big occasion. Early this month, on June 3 to be exact, a service was held at the historic abbey to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the coronation. The service included much of the music used during the service six decades earlier. I followed news coverage of the anniversary service. The 2,000 who attended the Westminster Abbey event included former choirboys and maids of honour from the original ceremony. A total of 25 members of the royal family were on hand. Obviously it is a very different royal family today. One image that particularly struck me was a newspaper photograph of the Queen beaming at her daughter-in-law Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, the wife of her eldest child and heir apparent Prince Charles. Few people will be unaware of Camilla’s role as Charles’ second wife and

the scandal that accompanied his divorce from the late, much-loved Princess Diana, the mother of his two sons. To say the least Her Majesty, the Duke of Edinburgh and most British citizens were “not amused” by the events which led up to Charles eventual marriage to Camilla. That despite the fact the ceremony was a quiet affair, held long after Princess Diana’s death in the tragic Paris automobile crash in August 1997. My, how times have changed! Despite the trials and tribulations of the royal family I think it can be fairly said that the Queen Elizabeth remains one of the most popular figures in British history. A woman who is respected, even revered, in countries around the world. Many of us, especially people like me who grew up and became much older during her long and successful reign, have their own memories of the Queen. I am an Ottawa native and therefore there were many chances to see her in person. Ottawa, the nation’s capital, has hosted so many visits by Her Majesty over the course of 60 years. Canada has been a favourite destination for the Queen. In fact she has visited Canada 24 times, the most official visits she has made to any nation in the world as queen. Her first full visit was in October 1957 and her most recent was in late June and early July 2010. For the record, if you count brief visits including refueling stops, she has been to Canada an astounding 31 times. That total includes a tour of seven provinces in 1951 on behalf of her ailing father while she was still Princess Elizabeth. I have seen her in person twice in Ottawa. I vividly remember standing in

front of Rideau Hall in October 1964 with my parents and two of my three siblings (my youngest sister wasn’t born yet) and seeing the smiling Queen as her limousine drove slowly past. We were standing near the main gate of the Governor General’s official residence. Her 1964 tour was held despite threats made against her by the Quebec-based separatist organization which went by the acronym FLQ. Undeterred, the Queen came to Canada anyone albeit amid tight security. In the 1970s (October 1977 I believe) Kathy and I saw the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh while we were attending an Ottawa Rough Riders (Canadian Football League) game at Lansdowne Park. We had a very good look at her, through binoculars, as she dutifully sat through the first half of the Rough Riders’ game at Lansdowne Park during yet another visit to Ottawa. Something tells me she isn’t a big CFL fan? No matter what you think of the Queen and the monarchy it is impossible to ignore the fact that she is an iconic figure whose reign covered nearly half the 20th Century and has extended well into the 21st, the so-called “New Millennium.” Given her apparent good health, there is a strong likelihood she will eclipse Queen Victoria’s reign. I’m sure many of you have personal memories of Queen Elizabeth II? I would be pleased if you would share them with me by email. Your memories might even make another column!

Design for Almonte’s new skatepark officially unveiled By KELLY KENT

EMC News – Soon the skateboarders and bikers of Mississippi Mills will have a place to call their very own with the construction of the Almonte Skatepark. At a recent event held at TYPS in Almonte, the design of the future park was unveiled while excited teens snapped pictures of it with their smartphones and chatted amongst themselves about how “wicked” or “awesome” it is going to be. The skatepark, which was designed by Spectrum Skateparks from Vancouver, B.C., will be 7,150 square feet of concrete, ramps and rails, according to Calvin Murphy, Mississippi Mills parks and recreation pro-

grammer and Sarah Robertson, head of fund development. “It’s really for the younger population, or at least the young at heart,” said Robertson. “It will be a place for them to go and be active, since much of Almonte is not really skateboard-friendly.” The park is approved to be located in Gemmill Park, and will cost just over $300,000. The money for the park will be raised mainly through fundraisers spearheaded by Robertson and local youth, grants and corporate sponsorship. “The youth have already started their own independent (fundraising) plan,” said Robertson. The team hopes to break ground for the skatepark in the spring of next year.

Valley Heartland reveals three new pilot projects at annual general meeting

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Three new pilot projects were revealed at the annual general meeting of Valley Heartland Community Futures Development Corporation (CFDC) June 19. The meeting, which was held over breakfast at Fultonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pancake House in Pakenham, covered the accomplishments of the corporation over the last year. Valley Heartland CFDC is a not-for-profit organization run by a volunteer board of directors and aims to improve the communities of Lanark and North Leeds by providing business loans, counseling and coaching along with supporting development and strategic planning. Susan Fournier, the corporationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive director, gave a presentation outlining the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s progress throughout the year and unveiled three new pilot programs that they will roll out this coming year. One of the programs the Valley Heartland CDFC will begin is called Student Entrepreneurs Excel (SEE). This project will aim to assist post-secondary students start small businesses by providing microloans of up to $10,000 and mentors or coaches to give their expertise on the initiative. The students will also be provided with workshops to build needed skills. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This program also helps with youth retention,â&#x20AC;? said Fournier.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Students who have taken advantage of similar programs in other areas have tended to stay within that area.â&#x20AC;? Another program being rolled out this year is STEP: Sustainable Tourism Empowerment Pathway. This program will provide microloans to encourage people, especially those on social assistance, to create small businesses in the tourism sector. Fournier explained that many communities have tourism wish lists â&#x20AC;&#x201C; like wishing for more food or craft vendors along the river â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that can be filled using this program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This program can be used by a person with a specific skills set,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Say one man is really good at making wooden paddles, well he can set up a stand selling paddles.â&#x20AC;? Mentors or coaches and workshops to strengthen skills will also be provided for those who take part in STEP. The program is designed to enhance the tourism offering within the region. The final program unveiled by the Valley Heartland CFDC is WELL: Women Entrepreneurs of Lanark and North Leeds. This program is designed to assist women entrepreneurs grow their businesses. Micro-loans will be available for women who want to begin a homebased business, while business loans will be available for established women entrepreneurs to grow their existing businesses.

The option to have a mentor or coach will be available but will not be mandatory as with the other two programs. These programs will be added to the corporationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s existing services, which include a contribution program where a person will receive a contribution back after their project has been completed, either up to 75 per cent for a notfor-profit business or 50 per cent for a private sector business. This past year, Valley Heartland CFDC had 192 serious inquires which resulted in 35 loans, for a total of $900,000. They also created 30 new jobs and maintained another 138. Since 1980 the corporation has created over 1,200 jobs and maintained over 3,000, while giving out over $14 million in term loans from an initial federal investment over only $2 million. For more information on the Valley Heartland CFDC, visit www.

Susan Fournier, executive director of Valley Heartland Community Futures Development Corporation (CFDC), gave a presentation on how the corporation has been doing for the past year, and unveiled three new pilot programs: SEE, STEP and WELL.

New strategic plan for Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital By TARA GESNER

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (CPDMH) new five-year strategic plan has been inspired by the people and the communities that it serves, states Toni Surko, chief executive officer (CEO). Surko outlined the plan during the hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 58th annual general meeting (AGM) at ZionMemorial United Church last Wednesday evening, June 19 (see separate story). By way of a strategic plan, an organization defines its strategy or direction, and makes decisions on allocating its resources to pursue this strategy. Over the last seven-month period CPDMH went to great lengths to listen to its staff and the people it serves, to ensure its resources were focused in the right direction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In a nutshell our strategic process was really quite simple,â&#x20AC;? said Surko. We wanted to focus on the most important issues, question the status quo, produce a direction document, and translate it into an annual operating plan.â&#x20AC;?

ues,â&#x20AC;? said the CEO. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We felt that they were strong and still relevant.â&#x20AC;? CARE: C ÂŹâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; compassionate, consistent, courteous and confidential; A â&#x20AC;&#x201C; advocates for delivering accessible and accountable services; R â&#x20AC;&#x201C; respectful and encouraging of decisions based on individual rights and community resources; and E â&#x20AC;&#x201C; efficient, equitable, dedicated to a safe environment and excellence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we looked at our strategic direction, the number one direction was to optimize patient access to services,â&#x20AC;? said Surko. Direction two: Lead the way in quality and safety. The third direction is to be a responsive, integration leader. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Strategic direction four is to create healthy, innovative teams to action our mission for today and tomorrow,â&#x20AC;? said Surko. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is our human resource plan.â&#x20AC;? The final direction is to secure a strong, sustainable future. The CEO explained as CPDMH rolls out its strategic priorities, patient-centred care would remain its touchstone. It is an exciting time for CPDMH. In June 2012 the board of directors of the Champlain Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) voted unanimously to endorse CPDMHâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s program model for its redevelopment plan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We continue to work in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care to work through the stages of the capital planning process,â&#x20AC;? said Surko. The communication strategy for the hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new strategic plan will be rolled out in the next six months.

ed surveys, resulting in valuable feedback for the hospital. The surveys from physicians identified the following priorities: invest in the hospital infrastructure; enhanced imaging and computed tomography (CT); strong political platform and connectivity with physiciansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; offices; and health prevention and health promotion. The priorities for the hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s community partners: greater advocacy for the health-care needs of specific populations â&#x20AC;&#x201C; mental health and addictions, chronic disease, palliative care and seniors; optimized primary care access and collaboration; opportunities for the health of the partnership; and health prevention and health promotion. Patients needed access to more physicians and specialists and access to diagnostic imaging, CT and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). â&#x20AC;&#x153;They talked about driving into Ottawa and long wait times,â&#x20AC;? said Surko. Further services were requested for seniors and people with diabetes, congestive heart failure, respiratory disease, mental health, cancer


New vision, mission Following the extensive consultation with internal and external stakeholders, a new vision for CPDMH was drafted. It is: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shaping a healthy future for our communities through caring, quality and innovation.â&#x20AC;? Surko said the hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new mission statement is â&#x20AC;&#x153;to deliver the highest level of health care by connecting patients to responsive, integrated services, leading the way in quality and safety, and being the kind of hospital that patients recommend to family and friends.â&#x20AC;? CPDMHâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s values spell the acronym CARE. Survey feedback Fifteen physicians, 17 community partners, â&#x20AC;&#x153;In 2006 a focus group of staff and volunteers within the hospital developed these val- 100 patients and seven service clubs complet-

and no kidney function (dialysis necessary). In the development of its strategic plan, the community asked the hospital to think about the significant commercial growth and residential development following the expansion of Highway 7, as well as the increased use of local services by residents of west Ottawa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For some in our community it is a sore spot,â&#x20AC;? said Surko. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, many said we must consider how we accommodate this growth.â&#x20AC;? Other issues raised included health system sustainability challenges, funding opportunities (shared resources with other communities, hospitals and private sector partnerships), revenue generating activities, retirement beds, high percentage of seniors, mental health illness and chronic disease, health-care wait times, transition challenges, home care support, health promotion and prevention strategies, and advances in technology. Surko said CPDMH looks forward to working together with partners and the hospital teams to ensure the delivery of outstanding care and an exceptional patient experience.

Shared, county-wide speed sign ‘dead in the water’ By DESMOND DEVOY

EMC News – One speed sign to unite them all? Not anymore. The county’s second-hand, shared, speed sign has warned its last motorist about going over the posted speed limit, and has been put out to pasture. And there seems to be no burning desire to go down the road of sharing a trailer-mounted unit around again. “The status on the current sign is that it is out of service,” said Neil Fennell from Tay Valley Township, and chair of the county’s speed sign committee. “It is likely history,” and beyond sense repairing, he told the Lanark County association of police services boards quarterly meeting at the Mississippi Mills council chambers on Wednesday, June 5. “The shared sign concept is, I believe, dead in the water,” said Fennell. “Essentially, it is a discontinu-

ance of the unit.” “We have to dispose of it as an asset,” said Insp. Gerry Salisbury, detachment commander for the Lanark County OPP. Going around the room, many communities expressed their interest to, essentially, go it alone when it came buying speed signs. • Carleton Place: Has purchased its own. • Mississippi Mills: Will purchase its own. • Tay Valley Township: Will purchase its own. Has resolved not to join any county-wide speed sign purchase. • Perth: Will utilize the former Perth Police Service speed sign that it still has in its arsenal. • Montague Township: Will not be purchasing a sign at this time. • Drummond/North Elmsley: Will not be continuing on with the county-wide program. • Lanark Highlands Township: Will purchase a trailer-mounted unit, a decision passed by their com-

mittee-of-the-whole on Tuesday, June 4. • Beckwith Township: Will buy a sign on its own, but is still determining. Has discussed a joint program with Montague. Repealed The protocol governing the county-wide speed sign was then repealed, and will go back to the individual PSBs for their dismissal off of the books. Fennell asked Salisbury if a township/town operated unit could be affixed with OPP stickers and decals for extra authenticity. “Not unless it is a unit that is identified by us, insured, tagged,” said Salisbury. “The short answer would be no, unless it is donated,” to the OPP. The speed sign subcommittee was also wound up at the meeting. “I don’t see a purpose in continuing in this,” said Fennell. “The subcommittee’s role is, essentially, done.”

Council discusses next phase of Almonte subdivision By KELLY KENT


EMC News – A quiet public meeting was held during the Mississippi Mills Committee of the Whole session June 18 to discuss the plan for phase C1 of a new subdivision currently under construction in Almonte. Stephen Stirling, the development’s planner, gave a presentation regarding the proposed plan. The subdivision, which is being built behind the Shoppers Drug Mart, is currently in the process of beginning its third phase, which will see the construction of five blocks for 10 semi-detached, single-family homes and one block for a future development of three buildings of 12-unit apartment buildings, for a total of 36 units. There will also be a large informal park area behind the development. The public had little to say about the proposed plan; most wanted more information on the park itself, but were given little information by

Stirling besides that the park will be “informal.” Council members had more to say. Coun. Shaun McLaughlin said he wanted a more comprehensive study done about the wildlife in the area that many have their habitat affected by the development. McLaughlin said a study had been done by a biologist in October of last year, after all the wildlife had gone south for the winter. This, he said, was not acceptable – a study must be done between mid-April to midAugust to fully understand the true scope of the wildlife that inhabits that area. Stirling countered by saying the biologist could read signs that the wildlife did live there and concluded that the area does not support a significant amount of species at risk. Coun. John Edwards said he wanted to know when they would see a full plan for the development, instead of small phases. Stirling answered that council should see a more comprehensive plan by the next phase of the development.

Calls for protocol to deal with mentally ill suspects By DESMOND DEVOY

EMC News – A leading local policing board veteran is calling for a protocol between local police and area hospitals to deal with the mentally ill. George Braithwaite, a member of the Lanark Highlands police services board (PSB), told the Lanark County Association of Police Services Board’s quarterly meeting at the Mississippi Mills municipal offices that the City of Hamilton, had signed an agreement between its police force and area hospitals. Police officers can wait a “long time until that person is seen by a doctor,” said Braithwaite, the county PSB’s representative to the Ontario association of PSBs. “Police officers spend a lot of time in hospital,” said

Braithwaite, waiting to hand off a mentally ill patient who is “acting out” to be put into proper care. The Hamilton protocol reduced the time police spent in hospital waiting rooms keeping an eye on patients before handing them off from 122 minutes to 70 minutes, on average. “It would reduce the cost of policing,” said Braithwaite. “Officers would not be out of a job, their time would be better deployed.” OPP Staff Sgt. Derek Needham reported that about 80 per cent of OPP officers already receive three-day training on how to deal with mentally ill, or suspected mentally ill, people that they come into contact with. “It gives officers some of the best practices and tactics on how to deal with someone who is in crisis,” said Needham. “There is a very strict (criterion) that we have to adhere to before we apprehend them.”

We’re having a heat wave... EMC Editorial – Some hate the humidity, some revel in it, but whichever side you’re on, summer is officially here and along with it, those muggy temperatures. Lanark County is in the midst of its first heat alert of the summer season, which began a few short days ago on June 21. Due to temperatures expected to reach the high thirties (which could feel like over 40 degrees with the Humidex), the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit issued a heat alert on Monday, June 24. Summer is a favourite season of many, but the heat and humidity that often goes along with it is nothing to take lightly. According to the health unit, this dangerous mix can cause dehydration, heat stroke, heat exhaustion and even in some cases, death. While everyone is at risk, it is particularly the elderly, those with chronic illnesses or on specific medications, infants and preschool children, as well as those who work outdoors or participate in physical activity for long periods of time, that are particularly susceptible. During these heat waves, it’s important

to be better safe than sorry and exercise common sense. You wouldn’t want to spend hours out in the scorching heat, so don’t leave your children or pets parking in cars or sleeping outside in the direct sunlight. There have been too many cases of infants or dogs being left in vehicles, just so their parent or owner could zip into the mall to get that item they desperately needed. In some instances, the errand isn’t such a quick one and can have a fatal outcome. It’s selfish and thoughtless and people should know better. In temperatures such as the ones we’re facing this week, it doesn’t take long for one lapse in judgment to have tragic effects. Although the health unit recommends staying indoors with the drapes shut and keeping lights turned down low, if you have no choice but to be outside, make sure regular breaks are taken in the shade and drink plenty of water and fruit juices throughout the day. Don’t drink liquids too fast, sip them often throughout the day. Try to avoid alcoholic beverages, cola and coffee and stick to consuming foods with high

water content to avoid dehydration. This includes fruit such as oranges, grapes and watermelon. Remember to wear loose fitting and light clothing and always have a hat on hand to block out the sun’s harmful rays. Don’t forget that SPF either. If you have access to air conditioning, use it. If it is unavailable, maintaining low energy activities, visiting public facilities with air conditioning (malls and libraries), relaxing at a pool, or taking periodic cool baths and using wet towels to beat the heat. Fans should be used in the evening to draw in cool air, but the health unit advises against using them as primary cooling

devices. Avoiding using ovens and other appliances, such as dryers, can also help keep your home cooler. If you do find yourself experiencing symptoms like nausea, dizziness, blurred vision, difficulty breathing, severe headaches or confusion, fever or convulsion, get to a hospital as soon as possible. This is just the first of likely many heat waves we’ll have before summer ends on Sept. 21, so crank up that air conditioning, draw the blinds and keep cool. Think about shovelling six feet of snow in the dead of winter. By taking the proper precautions out there, we can all enjoy a safe and happy summer.

minutes, but it had changed somewhere throughout the course of the day to just being able to finish the whole race. I was really starting to regret my lack of training. The countdown started and all the racers began bouncing on the balls of their feet or shaking out their limbs. I was trying to absorb some energy from Kiefer, who looked like a kid in a candy store. I still felt terribly pessimistic, but I decided to give it my all anyway. Three, two, one, go! We took off, with Kiefer and I mid-way through the pack. My competitive side kicked in and we began running a bit faster than I probably should have. My throat started burning almost instantly – that spicy pepperoni stick I ate before the race was a bad idea. The first part of the course was an out-and-back; we ran straight to a turning point and then came straight back. I saw my dad coming back faster than I could have imagined, he was doing great! He gave us an encouraging smile as he passed us by. After we hit the turnaround point things started to go wrong. I was blacking out again, something that often happens to me when my already low blood pressure drops. I told Kiefer I had to walk for a bit or I’d faint. Three people passed us before I felt well enough to continue running. I managed to fight through my ever-worsening vision until the first water station, which I thought was one kilometre in. I was beyond discouraged that I was already hav-

ing trouble when we were only one fifth of the way done. As it turns out, the water station was halfway through the course and I was suffering from something my dad later called “race brain.” I was so focused on the run that I had no idea how far we had already come. Still, at the time I thought we were only getting started. The logical side of my brain told me the race co-ordinators would have placed a water station at each kilometre mark; so I thought we would have completed another one kilometre after the next water break. As we continued on our way and found no other water stations, I started to give up. “We haven’t even done two kilometres,” I was thinking. “There’s no way I’ll be able to keep this up for three more.” I had to stop to keep myself from passing out a few more times until we crossed the second bridge, which put us on the same side of the river as the finish line. Soon after that, we found my dad – he had finished the race in third place, with a time of 19 minutes. “I need water,” I cried to him. “Where is the next station?” “At the finish,” he said. This almost crushed me. I thought we still had more than half of the race to run. I didn’t think I would make it. I told my dad this. But, no, he said, the finish was less than a kilometre away! This perked me up a bit. I checked my wrist watch; if we continued at this pace we would finish well within our goal of 35 minutes! I did much better from that point on. When the finish line came into view and the spectators began cheering us on, I began giving it

my all and sprinting. I came across the finish line with a time of 33 minutes, a personal best. It was then, as I watched another runner cross the finish line and put my own finisher’s medal around my neck, that I understood. Running isn’t about the run. It’s about pushing yourself to do things you never thought you could and surprising yourself with your own ability. It’s about believing in yourself and encouraging others to do the same. I’ll admit it. I cried a little. I was full of endorphins and I was just glad it was over. I had run faster and farther than I had ever done before, and I hadn’t even noticed it. And even though the run itself was terrible and I felt awful for most of it, that’s not the part of the race I will remember. I’ll remember the cheers of the crowd, the sound of the timer recording my first official time, and the feeling that I did it, against all odds. I proved to myself that I could do anything I put my mind to. I will be running more races. It’s an addictive sport. The pride at the end of a race is worth the pain during it.

What is a stroke? “Stroke is a vascular incident that damages the brain,” explains Dr. Atack. “The majority of strokes are ischemic, meaning that the blood flow to the brain is interrupted by a blocked artery or by a build-up of sludge in a large vessel that breaks off and travels to a distant vessel. If it doesn’t break up quickly, it can cause stroke.” A Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) is a temporary interruption of blood flow to the brain that is typically over in minutes or a few hours. “Other types of stroke are cardiac embolic stroke, in which the heart is the source of a clot or sludge, and hemorrhagic stroke, which is caused by a blood vessel bursting in the brain,” says Dr. Atack. “The latter may be as a result of uncontrolled blood pressure, an intracerebral hemorrhage, vascular malfunction or an aneurysm.” Who is at risk of stroke? “Genetics is very important, so if you have a family history of stroke

or heart disease, you should be on guard,” says Dr. Atack. “A healthy lifestyle, including eating and sleeping well, and exercising, can help minimize risk.” Smokers are very much at risk for stroke. “A stroke research colleague of mine says that if everyone stopped smoking, it would have the greatest impact on lowering stroke than anything else,” says Dr. Atack. “People with diabetes, high LDL cholesterol, high blood pressure, and a history of heart disease are also at increased risk of stroke.” What are the symptoms? “Sudden numbness or

weakness in a limb or the face, sud speech loss or distortion or loss of speech comprehension, double vision or sudden blindness in one eye, dizziness, and a sudden headache unlike any one you have had before are the five signs of possible stroke,” says Dr. Atack. “If you have any of these symptoms call 911 and get to an emergency department immediately.” How is stroke treated? “If you are diagnosed with an ischemic stroke within 4.5 hours of the onset of symptoms, you may be given tPA (tissue plasminogen activator) to break up the clot,” says Dr. Atack. “It can partially or completely reverse symptoms.” What happens after a stroke? “If symptoms have not disappeared within 24 hours, it is a completed stroke,” explains Dr. Atack. “A patient would typically undergo rehabilitation to restore speech, comprehension, movement and other affected functions.” Another important part of post-stroke care is identifying the underlying health issues that caused the stroke, and taking steps to address them. “If you have suffered a stroke, you are at greater risk of suffering a subsequent one,” says Dr. Atack.

Canadians owner reports on teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic impact By TARA GESNER

noted Clarke. He said the total dollars spent on ice rental per year is $33,925. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We bring a lot of players in from North America, running two import camps per year,â&#x20AC;? said Clarke. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This means approximately 200 people from outside eastern Ontario.â&#x20AC;? The camps run for three days. At $500 per player (hotel, food and miscellaneous costs), this adds up to $100,000 per year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On top of this, during the regular season (eight months) the club billets 12 players from outside eastern Ontario,â&#x20AC;? said Clarke. Players spend approximately $300 each per month in the community, totalling $28,800. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As well, the Canadians pay billet families $350 per month,â&#x20AC;? said Clarke. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These funds are also injected into our community for groceries and more.â&#x20AC;? When playersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; families travel to Carleton Place to visit (typically twice a year), another $12,000 is spent in the area (hotel, food and miscellaneous costs).

Clarke said the Canadians organization has generated roughly $174,725 towards the local economy each year for the last three years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the end of the 2012-13 season we will have contributed $698,900 in our first four years,â&#x20AC;? he continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are on pace to contribute over $1 million to the local economy by our fifth year.â&#x20AC;? Furthermore, approximately $2.8 million has been produced, owing to 18 division one athletic scholarships. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a lot of success with on ice production,â&#x20AC;? said Clarke. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Congratulations to you and the team,â&#x20AC;? said mayor Wendy LeBlanc. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing how far youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve brought the team. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made a wonderful economic impact, and I like the fact that you are talking millions of dollars in tuition for these kids to move on in their academic career.â&#x20AC;? Giving back Thanks to local contractor Josh Jackson (Jackson Homes) and the Canadians, $5 for each goal scored during the season is donated to the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s charity

or group of choice for the year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Canadians scored 248 goals,â&#x20AC;? said LeBlanc, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and a cheque for $1,240 was presented to the Sister City Committee because they were the group of choice this year. LeBlanc said it was a nice presentation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thank you to the Canadians for scoring so many goals,â&#x20AC;? she said with a laugh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We appreciated the addition to our budget.â&#x20AC;? Carleton Place is twinned with Franklin, Tennessee (2005) and Comrie, Scotland (1992). Tickets Get your 2013-14 season seats now. Prices are as follows: $250 (adults); $185 (senior or student); $50 plus HST (children under 12). HST applies. Season seats include all pre-season exhibition games, reserved seating and priority playoff tickets (no waiting in line). Single ticket prices are as follows: $12 (adults); $9 (senior or student) and $5 (children under 12).All prices include HST.


EMC Sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Since the inception of the Carleton Place Canadians junior hockey team four years ago, owner Jason Clarke has provided the local municipal council with an annual update on how the team fared during its season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, I wanted to do something a little different for this year,â&#x20AC;? he told councillors last Tuesday, June 18, during the community issues committee meeting. Owing to the sports team, Clarke spoke about the local economic impact. The Canadians average 350 fans per game, and there are 29 home games. Playoffs, however, are a different story. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Almost all of our playoff games are sold out,â&#x20AC;? said Clarke. Coun. Doug Black inquired how the home game attendance compared to other junior ice hockey teams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In regards to fan impact, out of 12 teams we are fourth in the league (Central Canada Hockey League),â&#x20AC;? said Clarke. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s okay, but I think

thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not enough comfort creatures within our facility to draw more fans.â&#x20AC;? In the next couple of years the owner would like to raise funds for a full facelift inside the arena, which would include new seats. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This would be done and paid for by the users, not the taxpayers,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We would love to have a facility like Smiths Falls.â&#x20AC;? Averaging 10,150 fans per year, if each person spends $1.50 at the arenaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s canteen, $15,225 is collected. Clarke said this money is directed to keeping the minor hockey rates down. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We also did a poll of our local restaurants, including Thirsty Moose Pub & Eatery, Guidoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Restaurant and Ballygiblinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Restaurant & Pub,â&#x20AC;? he said. If each restaurant averages two tables per home game at $50 a table, this equates to $8,700 per year. The Canadians organization continues to purchase non prime time ice from the town, resulting in an additional $10,000 being injected into the municipal budget. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We practice from 3:30 to 5 p.m.,â&#x20AC;?

Carleton Place hospital well positioned to meet challenges, CEO reports By TARA GESNER

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital (CPDMH) held its 58th annual general meeting (AGM) at Zion-Memorial United Church last Wednesday evening, June 19. Chair of the board of directors, Lois-Anne Brebner welcomed guests, including local Member of Provincial Parliament (MPP) Randy Hillier. Last year has been both challenging and rewarding for the CPDMH. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The hospital must balance the growing demands for health care in the community with the fiscal realities of funding constraints and the need to present a balanced budget,â&#x20AC;? said Brebner. Challenges also exist with the advancement of the redevelopment project through the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MoHLTC). The hospital has, however, secured the full support of the Champlain Local Health Integration Network (LHIN). Brebner thanked the CEO and chair of the LHIN for their efforts on the hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s behalf, in addition to Carleton Place mayor Wendy LeBlanc and council for their continued support and assistance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I also want to recognize Beckwith Township for its commitment to our redevelopment project, as well as Gordon MacNabb for chairing the redevelopment committee and his dedication to the much-needed project,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gordon and Toni (Surko, CPDMH chief executive officer) have worked tirelessly to gather data, respond to numerous questions from the ministry, re-work the proposal to satisfy changing priorities within the ministry, and investigate alternative models of funding.â&#x20AC;? Moreover, the chair acknowledged the board of trustees, calling them a talented, dedicated and committed group. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has been a pleasure to work with each and every one of you,â&#x20AC;? said Brebner, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and I thank you

for your support, encouragement and hard work.â&#x20AC;? Gratitude was also extended to the hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Auxiliary. This year the organization celebrated its 60th anniversary â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an outstanding achievement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At a time when budgets are at best flat-lined, and cutbacks appear to be the norm, the one thing that we can count on is the dedicated support of these wonderful volunteers who continue to give of their time and talents to help fill the gaps to make our hospital an even better place,â&#x20AC;? said Brebner. The hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s foundation continues to be an active and supportive partner of the hospital, raising funds for equipment and more. Robyn Arsenault joined the organization in 2012 as the manager of fundraising and communication. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The hospital has benefitted greatly from Robynâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expertise,â&#x20AC;? said Brebner. The chair praised the hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s senior management team: chief executive officer (CEO) Toni Surko; chief financial officer and assistant executive director of support services Darlene Mitchell; and chief nursing officer Esther Houle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They keep the hospital running efficiently and effectively on a daily basis,â&#x20AC;? she said. Kudos went to chief of staff Dr. Martin White and other physicians. Looking ahead, Brebner told AGM attendees: â&#x20AC;&#x153;In spite of both fiscal and facility challenges, we have reason to be optimistic. The hospital is recognized as an exemplary hospital, serviced by outstanding leaders, staff, professionals and volunteers. Our redevelopment plans are inching forward, but these projects do take time. Patience and perseverance are the hallmarks of success.â&#x20AC;? CEOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report Brebner welcomed Surko to give her annual report. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my pleasure to provide my report on the successes of our team in the last year,â&#x20AC;? said Surko, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and to comment on how we are preparing to meet the challenges ahead.


The CPDMH launched a new five-year strategic plan in 2013 (see separate story). â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have always believed that the value of strategic planning lies in the thoughtful pause that allows the organization the opportunity to reflect on the journey of the past, consider the strengths and challenges of the present and envision a new future,â&#x20AC;? said Surko. For the CEO, the most interesting part of the exercise for me is the broad stakeholder engagement â&#x20AC;&#x201C; service clubs, staff, board and partners â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that ensures that the plan â&#x20AC;&#x153;solidly reflects the priorities of the community and is respectful and accountable to the resources that we steward.â&#x20AC;? The CPDMHâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment to patient safety, quality and patient centredness has been evidenced by way of a number of outstanding achievements, including posting in the 90th percentile of Ontario hospitals for patient satisfaction in emergency, accreditation with exemplary standing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 99 per cent compliance, healthy workplace program established; improved staff and patient nutrition by way of healthy food options, and best performance of LHIN hospitals reporting emergency wait times. â&#x20AC;&#x153;None of this would be possible without committed teams who rise to the challenge of leader-

ship and project management,â&#x20AC;? said Surko. She thanked the governance, senior administration and operational teams, in addition to the volunteers and foundation for making the year a success. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As we look ahead to the coming years, I know there are many challenges coming,â&#x20AC;? added Surko. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my pleasure to report that the Carleton Place hospital is well positioned to meet these challenges head on for our patients and our communities.â&#x20AC;? Finances Janet Foster, the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newly elected treasurer, presented the audited financial statements, prepared by Allan Chartered Accountant Professional Corporation, and trustees approved the reappointment of the firm as the hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s external auditors for fiscal year 2013/14. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our treasurer for 2012/13 was unable to be at the meeting,â&#x20AC;? explained Nancy Kenwood, the hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive assistant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Janet stepped in for Rae Dulmage.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;In 2012/13 the hospital continued to operate under an environment of fiscal restraint due to a See AGM A/CP12

government funding allocation of zero per cent, decreasing revenues, and an inflation rate that increases our costs by two to three per cent,â&#x20AC;? said Dulmage in a written report. For the year (fiscal) ended March 31 the hospital reported an operating deficit of $44,725 compared to a budget deficit of $46,692. Total operating expenses were $13,596,707 (amortization of equipment, general supplies, drugs and medical gases, medical and surgical supplies, medical staff remuneration and salaries, wages and benefits) The CPDMH is required to maintain a balanced operating position through its accountability agreement with the LHIN. As a result the walk-in lab was closed to ensure a balanced budget for 2013/14. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Prior to closure, we ensured

patient access to a community lab provider,â&#x20AC;? explained Dulmage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gamma-Dynacare is now offering laboratory services in a more appropriate setting at a modern, spacious patient care centre in town.â&#x20AC;?

EMC Events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; On a dreary, snowy January day, a group of artsy folks and those with green thumbs got together to create a summer getaway experience for one day in Carleton Place. The idea of delighting all five senses became the theme of the event. The Blooming Arts & Garden Tour was born, a community fundraiser in partnership with Arts Carleton Place and Carleton Place in Bloom taking place on Saturday, July 6 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Rain date is July 7. A volunteer committee was set up with members assigned tasks and reporting back at regular meetings. The first request was for homeowners to open their private back gardens to the public. This was coordinated by Carleton Place in Bloom during the cold winter months talking about summer, sun, new ideas and plantings. Seven private gardens were chosen for their unique landscaping and settings, the shade garden, the cottage garden, a completely grass free garden and more. The Victoria School Garden and Community Labyrinth at our local museum was to be one of the locations as well. The cultural component was to invite Arts Carleton Place members to participate in the gardens displaying and performing that day. The Peter Brown Jazz Trio, Bluegrass Junction, Kerron Lamb will be performing at various gardens. Visual artists Jan Gilbert, Anna House, Strachan Johnston, Elsie Campbell and others will have their works incorporated throughout the flowerbeds and paths. Pottery, glass, iron and multi-media creations will be highlighted against a backdrop of garden splendour. Special green thumb

While in Nashville recently, McIntosh travelled to Franklin, Tennessee for some fun downtime. Carleton Place twinned with the city in January 2005. in Edmonton, AB, Sept. 5-8. Jordanites unite McIntosh has amassed a dedicated fan base – Jordanites. “They’re great!” he said. “I wouldn’t be where I am or headed in the direction I’m going without them.” “I am a Jordan McIntosh fan,” said 16-year-old Hannah Albers from Iroquois, ON. “He’s my favourite artist!” Albers finds him I find him very inspirational. “From the first time I heard Jordan on Y101, I was in love with him,” she said. “His voice is absolutely amazing and his songs are phenomenal! Jordan is always on repeat on my iPod.” Melissa Hamm from Saskatoon likes McIntosh’s music, too. “He puts great thought into his lyrics, and when he sings, he does it with a lot of emotion,” she said. “What first got me to love Jordan was his hit Walk Away. The song is so catchy.” Hamm is co-creator of McIntosh’s first fan account on Twitter – @JordansGirls – and suggested the name Jordanites. Ella Berman of Ottawa was in the car when she heard McIntosh on Y101. “I was instantly curious,” she said. “I wanted to know more. After looking him up on the Internet, she came across his YouTube channel, spending hours watching all of his videos (Car-

rie Underwood and Johnny Reid covers), including Walk Away.” Calling him inspirational, she instantly became a fan, a Jordanite. “His music is always there for me,” said Berman. “He makes an effort to connect with his fans.” Her favourite song – Let Me Love You. McIntosh started singing and performing as a result of his sister (Melissa). “When I was younger I did everything she did,” he said. “I’ve succeeded because of her. My parents (Greg and Julie) are very supportive, too.” Other sources of backing include local and national radio and media outlets. McIntosh recently completed his senior year at Carleton Place High School and plans to take a year off before making any decisions about post-secondary education. “I am just living in the now,” he said, “and enjoying myself.” With such a busy schedule, travelling around the world, doing promotion and performing there is no time for a girlfriend. “It’s difficult to balance everything,” he admitted, “and I’ve had to eliminate some things to pursue this.” For more information about the singer, visit Fans can also follow McIntosh on Twitter (@jordanmcintosh), Facebook (Jordan McIntosh Official) and Instagram, and don’t forget to call your local country music station to request his new song.

THE USED BOOK OUTLET ( The U.B.O.) Real books – with the touch – the feel and the sound of turning pages.


EMC Entertainment – Jordan McIntosh is living the dream of country music. Life is great for the Carleton Place resident, having just released his latest single to country radio, Grew Up in a Country Song on June 10. When McIntosh performs the song or listens to it, he thinks of home, which is close to his heart. “It’s about Carleton Place,” said the 17-year-old sensation. “It’s about where I grew up, and this makes it even more special. I will never forget where I came from, and no matter where my career takes me, I will always return.” Grew Up in a Country Song follows the singer’s debut hit Walk Away and follow up single Let Me Love You. The progression in McIntosh from Walk Away to Grew Up in a Country Song is astonishing. “I’m finally finding my sound,” he said. “I love the change, and I hope others do too.” Grew Up in a Country Song was recorded in Nashville, along with other songs on the singer’s new album. “The new album is coming together great,” said McIntosh. “I’m working with a lot of different writers, being really involved in the creation process. The feeling is incredible.” He co-wrote Grew Up in a Country Song (with Heather Longstaffe and Johnny Gates), which is something he didn’t get an opportunity to do with Walk Away and Let Me Love You. The process of writing lyrics is very personal to McIntosh. “You put yourself out there to be judged,” he said. All songs are available for download on iTunes. While in Nashville recently, McIntosh travelled to Franklin, Tennessee for some fun downtime. Carleton Place twinned with the city in January 2005. The musician filmed a music video for Grew Up in a Country Song earlier this month, which took place in Carleton Place and area. Performing with the singer on camera are band mates Connor Riddell (guitar), Carter Peak (drums), Nick Deroucher (bass) and Andrew Woibes (guitar). All are young, talented and appeal to McIntosh’s fan base. “We all have a great connection,” he said. He also performs with Michaela Mullan, a fiddler from Ottawa. “She is one of the top fiddlers in the country,” said McIntosh. Multi-talented and highly driven, McIntosh has been extremely busy in recent weeks, filming a holiday movie in British Columbia for CMT (Country Music Television). It is called ‘Home for Christmas’. In April he was signed to Invictus Entertainment Group, “a diversified entertainment company with an adaptive edge.” They specialize in entertainment procurement services, event programming and artist representation (agency and management level). McIntosh recently performed at the CHEO Telethon and on stage at the Relay for Life in Mississippi Mills (Almonte). He stops by to perform at the Calabogie Country Music Festival on Friday, June 28. “I can’t wait,” said McIntosh. “I want people to hear my song.” Other upcoming performances include Ottawa’s RBC Royal Bank Bluesfest (July 6), Almonte Fair (July 20), Fitzroy in the Park (July 25) and Navan Fair (Aug. 11). He hits the road for Country Music Week

For the special touches; display of wedding dress, replica of wedding cake, the montage of photos, the unique guest book – records, the banner and so much more –thank you. For the great music, our friend Peter McKenna’s introduction, sisters-in-law for the great food, our SFDCI hospitality students, Tim Turner and Tayler Hughes for serving and setting up the buffet (a great job well done).

ASHTON, Arthur – In loving memory of my husband who passed away June 29, 2011. You knew I would miss you and tried so hard to stay, But the hardest thing I ever had to do is to be here alone without you day after day. I find myself just sitting and I look over at your chair, And I almost think I can really see you still sitting there. Life for you was getting hard and I know you had to go, As many years of failing health was really taking its toll. Please God put your arms around him and tell him how much I care, And how I look so forward to being with him up there. So for now, I carry on, as our family needs me, and I know they miss you too, But one by one someday we will all be together with you. To be absent from the body, is to be present with the Lord. Miss you Love You Forever, Your Wife, Helen Beaupre

JUBY, Dale – In precious memory of my darling husband Dale who walked through Heaven’s Gate June 24th, 2012. The moment that you died, My heart split in two, The one side filled with memories, The other died with you. I often lay awake at night, When the world is fast asleep, And take a walk down memory lane, With tears upon my cheeks. Remembering you is easy, I do it every day, But missing you is a heartache that never goes away. I hold you tightly within my heart, and there you will remain, Life has gone on without you, but it never will be the same. Sometimes I think I’m dreaming I can’t believe it’s true If I could have a lifetime wish A dream that would come true I would pray with all my heart For yesterday and you Until we meet again, Forever and always, your loving wife and friend, Diane

GUTKNECHT, Eric Leslie William June 25, 2010 of Kemptville. We thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new. We thought about you yesterday, and the day before that, too. We think of you in silence, we often say your name, But all we have are memories and your picture in a frame. Your memory is our keepsake, with which we’ll never part. God has you in His keeping, we have you in our heart. We shed tears for what might have been, a million times we’ve cried. If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died. In life we loved you dearly, in death we love you still, In our heart you hold a place, no one could ever fill. It broke our heart to lose you, but you didn’t go alone, For part of us went with you, the day God took you Home. Mom and Dad Visit for more information on the Eric Gutknecht Memorial Bursary.

Miller’s Bay Farm gears up for strawberry season, launches food box program EMC News – Imagine picking strawberries in a tranquil setting with the Rideau Canal just a stone’s throw away, or picking up a food box brimming with fresh produce, grown by people you know by name. At Miller’s Bay Farm, this is reality. Miller’s Bay Farm, located on Rideau Ferry Road, offers locally-grown, farm fresh produce for every season. The family has been farming for four generations and the farm’s road-side stand has become a landmark over the years. “We were both raised on a farm and we appreciate that lifestyle,” said owner Shannon Miller, who operates the farm with her husband, Robert, and their four children. “We’re delighted to raise our children in the same environment.” Miller’s Bay Farm is currently on the cusp of strawberry season – and it’s shaping up to be a banner one. This year has yielded twice as many strawberries to feast on, Miller said. With the season starting now, the pick-your-own operation is ready to welcome families and strawberry enthusiasts of all ages. Of course, there are also pre-picked strawberries ready to enjoy, too. “We’re really pleased with the way the patch is looking,” she said. The Miller’s Bay Farm berry patch is unique in that the pick-your-own fields are beautifully back-dropped by the Rideau Canal. “Families are more than welcome – we encourage families to make memories with us and experience picking here,” she said, adding that strawberry picking is a great way to establish the food-to-plate connection with children. To continue the tradition of sharing their locally-grown produce, Miller’s Bay Farm is launching a food box program this year. Miller said the family decided to add the new program to the mix as it was requested by customers and is beneficial on numerous levels. “It’s a good way for people to expand their food horizons,” she said. The program works so that customers pre-pay to pick up a weekly box of freshly-harvested produce. Beginning the first week of July, the box will host an assortment of what is in season each AUCTIONS

week for 15 weeks. “We’re keeping it simple, but due to the nature of farming, we won’t know ahead of time what types of produce will be in the basket each week,” Miller said, noting the weekly change of produce also adds an element of anticipation. She said participating in the food box program allows for a built-in cost savings for the customer when comparing it to the foodstand prices. “This way, new customers also get a good taste of all the things available from our farm,” Miller said. But travelling to the farm isn’t the only option for enjoying fresh produce grown close to home. For the third year, a Miller’s Bay Farm produce stand will be conveniently located in Perth in front of Penny’s Pit Stop Restaurant on Highway 7 east. “We have a lot of customers from Perth and although the farm is only a few minutes out of town, we thought it would be beneficial to bring our produce closer, to serve our customers,” Miller said. The stand will be at that location starting when strawberries become available and continuing throughout the summer. The Miller’s Bay Farm stand is unique in Perth as it provides produce that is grown only 12-kilometres from its location – further driving home the aspect of local food.

Rideau Lakes Horticultural Society private garden tour July 6 EMC Lifestyle – Once upon a time there were six enchanted gardens. These gardens were the home of magical creatures, plants and objects, and all was wonderful. Until, that is, a wicked sorceress cast a spell that caused the animals to be turned to stone and the objects to lose their powers. The plants were sad at this and, while continuing on with their lives, they no longer danced in the light of the sun and the moon. But then, it was decreed that on the

magical date of July 6, a group of brave gardeners would set forth to find the magical creatures and objects in the gardens and only by finding all 12 would the spell be broken and the gardens returned to their former joy. Are you one of these brave gardeners? All you need to do is contact Mark Stevens at 613-928-2652 or to purchase a $15 ticket that will open the gates to the six gardens and to a chicken barbecue

at Delta fairgrounds too, once you’ve completed your task. The gardens will be open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on July 6. Barbecue and prizes to follow. Come join in the fun for the return of the Rideau Lakes Horticultural Society’s tour of private gardens in the township, scavenger hunt and chicken barbecue. Coming up on July 3 is the regular monthly meeting of the Rideau Lakes Horticultural Society at the Portland Community Hall at 7:15 p.m. This

month’s guest speaker is Carol Dunk, master gardener and past president of the Ontario Horticultural Society. Carol will present Internet gardening spots, a great trip down the garden path for a rainy day. Monthly meetings are free to members, with membership a mere $15 a year. Non-members pay a $5 entry fee for each meeting, making the annual membership a real deal! Come join us! Submitted by the Rideau Lakes Horticultural Society.

Nominations now being accepted for Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation scholarship EMC News – Canada has one of the highest reported prevalence of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in the world and 20 to 30 per cent of people with IBD are diagnosed before the age of 20. To support Canadian students living with IBD and raise awareness about this chronic disease, the AbbVie IBD Scholarship Program is accepting nominations from young people living with IBD. In partnership with the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada (CCFC), the AbbVie IBD Scholarship Program is designed to award students who are living well with IBD, and strive to sustain an optimal level of wellness allowing them to excel while inspiring others to do the same. Through an unrestricted educational grant by AbbVie, CCFC will extend seven one-time scholarships of up to $5,000 CAN to students living with IBD who are entering into or are currently attending a post-secondary educational institution. Students of all ages are welcome to apply and the scholarship can be used for any Canadian post-secondary institution.

“I am committed to living each day to the fullest and I’m so grateful to the CCFC and AbbVie for giving me the opportunity and inspiration to push harder and help me excel at my academic goals,” says Clinton Shard, one of seven 2012 “gutsy” scholarship winners. “While the monetary scholarship provides an incentive, it also represents an investment in assisting students living with IBD and helping us achieve our dreams.” Through initiatives such as the scholarship program, AbbVie aims to continue accelerating the recognition of the burden of IBD and help further the global dissemination of evolving approaches to better care for people living with IBD. “AbbVie is proud to partner again this year with CCFC for the AbbVie IBD Scholarship Program. This initiative is a great example of a partnership that makes a difference in people’s lives,” states Felipe Pastrana, general manager of AbbVie Canada. “While our name, AbbVie, has changed – our commitment to the IBD community endures. Over THE EMC - 36 - Thursday, June 27, 2013

the years, AbbVie has shown continued commitment to people living with IBD by helping organizations and health care providers alike better understand the impact of these diseases on people’s lives. AbbVie recognizes the need for better disease diagnosis and monitoring to help improve the lives of millions of people affected by this chronic and debilitating disease.” IBD incidence rates on rise Inflammatory bowel disease, or IBD, is a group of disorders that causes the intestines to become inflamed and ulcerated. This is caused by an abnormal response of the body’s immune system. A recent survey conducted by the CCFC found that 69 percent of people who had IBD when they were young were delayed in completing their postsecondary education. Eighty-nine per cent who had IBD as a child felt that they could have achieved more at school without their disease. Since there is currently no known cure or cause, young people need strategies to achieve their best long-term health despite their diagnosis.

Scholarship details The AbbVie IBD Scholarship Program, in partnership with CCFC, is designed for applicants of any age entering into or attending a Canadian-based post-secondary institution. Applicants must be: • A legal and permanent resident of Canada; • Diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease by a physician; • Seeking an associate’s, undergraduate, or graduate degree from a Canadian university; college; or enrolled in a trade school educational program; Enrolled in or awaiting acceptance from a Canadian-based post-educational institution for the fall semester of 2013; and A student who demonstrates academic aspiration and strives to sustain an optimal level of wellness in spite of their IBD, allowing them to excel to reach their personal and academic goals and inspiring others to do the same.

Local health-care providers rally together to get adult day program in Almonte EMC Lifestyle – Meet Gordena, an Almonte senior working hard to maintain her independence and stay in her own home. She attended the Almonte General Hospital Day Hospital in 2011-12 for therapy, and when her goals were achieved, she was referred to the Adult Day Program, run by the Alzheimer Society of Lanark County, so she could maintain her physical, cognitive and social skills through this regular activity. One and a half years later, she continues to travel to Carleton Place, at a cost of $29 per week, through the Mills Community Support Corporation (MCSC) transportation services, to attend the day program twice a week. Recently, Gordena and her family described the benefits she has received by attending the program. They reported, “significant contributions to overall well-being through social interaction during tea, lunch, exercise, arts and crafts, baking, games, music and education.” In addition, they noted, “increased mobility through exercise and other hand/eye coordination activities,” and “activities that support and improve memory/mind health.” They also mentioned that the program “energizes participants through fun and laughter” and “allows family members to continue working, feeling confident their loved one is receiving quality care/guidance/stimulation.” Caregivers/families significantly benefit from the respite provided by having their loved one spend a full day away from home, so that they

can recharge their batteries, get errands done, or look after their own needs, while knowing that their spouse or parent is well-looked after, enjoying their day and maintaining important skills. These “days off” go a long way to helping families cope with the challenges they face in trying to care for their loved one at home. Social and recreational programs are very important to support the well being of our seniors, especially the frail elderly. The Alzheimer Society Adult Day Program is offered in Carleton Place two days per week, and this program provides an opportunity for clients to socialize, get general exercise and cognitive and social stimulation. This program is at capacity, serving 10 clients per day, and has a waiting list of 16 clients. This translates to a range of eight months to two years on the waiting list, as clients are discharged only when they can no longer manage in the program, or get placed into long term care. Many of their clients, like Gordena, travel to the program from Almonte, incurring costs for transportation, or taking respite time away from caregivers to drive them over. Currently in Almonte, the only social programs available are one-two hour activities, such as Music and Memories, Diners Clubs and occasional outings, offered through MCSC, which don’t provide enough respite for the caregivers of the participants. Recently, local health care providers partnered together when they recognized the need for a

local Day Program in Almonte. This need was recognized when health care professionals and community care workers were identifying clients who were declining due to decreases in activity and social isolation, as well as tired and stressed caregivers who weren’t getting enough breaks. In spite of two proposals being turned down, the group continues to work towards the goal of obtaining funding for this program. This program will provide a much-needed service in the Almonte community, decrease the cost of transportation in having to travel to the program in Carleton Place and allow caregivers/ families more time to rest. It will also free up spaces in the Carleton Place program for Carleton Place residents to attend, some who have been waiting for close to a year.


Local health care providers have teamed up to identify the need, the community has the space to offer this program, the Alzheimer Society has the experience and expertise to run it, local transportation is available – all we need is funding to set the program in motion. A third proposal will be sent to the Champlain LHIN (Local Health Integration Network) for funding at the next available opportunity. How can you help? If you support the idea of having an Adult Day Program in Almonte, take action by calling the Mills Home Support office (613-256-4700) or the Alzheimer Society (1-800511-1911) to let them know that you are on-board. A list of supporters will be kept by these offices to show community support for the application for funding. Please lend your support!

AGH Summer Golf Classic hits $117,573 in total revenue EMC Sports – Patients and residents at the Almonte General Hospital/Fairview Manor (AGH/FVM) are the winners after the AGH/FVM Foundation raised $117,573 for essential patient care equipment through its annual golf tournament. The 11th annual Almonte General Hospital Summer Golf Classic was held Friday, June 21 at the picturesque Canadian Golf and Country Club. Platinum corporate sponsor Rexall and platinum community sponsor Almonte Civitan Club led the way with valuable sponsorship dollars “We can’t thank our sponsors, auction donors, golfers and army of volunteers enough for coming out and supporting the hospital, Fairview Manor and foundation,” said AGH/FVM Foundation executive director Gerry Huddleston. “We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”

Calling the tournament a “fantastic day” golf committee chair Guido Patrice was pleased all the money raised will go towards the purchase of equipment. “The 224 golfers, more than 110 auction items, $63,000 plus in sponsorship funds and $13,000 in hole signs marks our most successful golf tournament to date,” said Huddleston. “Auctioneer Reg Gamble did an excellent job and special mention must go to Canadian Golf and Country Club owner Mark Seabrook and his staff for their excellent service, special golf course and outstanding meal.” The amazing total wouldn’t be possible without the help of our fantastic sponsors: • Platinum – Rexall, the Photo courtesy GERRY HUDDLESTON Almonte Civitan Club, Canadian Gazette/EMC/Metroland Four teams from the Almonte Civitan Club enjoyed the Al- presenting sponsors with the first of a two-year commitment Media monte General Hospital Summer Golf Classic at the Canadian as the platinum community sponsor.

his has been a remarkable year for the hospital. The clinical teams worked together to improve patient care through the adoption of key clinical protocols. We met or exceeded all of our performance targets for Quality and the hospital was recognized as an “exemplary” hospital by Accreditation Canada.

Patient-Centred, Quality Driven


In our quest for service improvement, we identified a need for a more functional, robust surgical program. Throughout the year, we have worked with surgeons to strengthen this essential program. We continued to focus our efforts on how to provide better service to our patients by recruiting more physicians. Over the past year, we have recruited two more emergency physicians to our team: a lung specialist and an ear, nose and throat surgeon. The hospital continues to be a training center for residents and medical students and we hosted several first year students from both Queen’s and the University of Ottawa this year. We worked with hospitals in the region to change how we credential our physicians to ensure timely access to quality medical resources. Together with our partners, Almonte and Arnprior hospitals, we are exploring shared medical resources to make sure our communities have

CPDMH scoring in the top 10% on overall Employee Engagement relative to hospital benchmarks. Specific results show a commitment on the part of staff to patients and the organization, with 97% saying they are proud to tell people they work for the hospital, 96% saying client satisfaction is a primary focus and 100% saying they are committed to doing high quality work. The inaugural Community Health Fest held on March 23rd in the Arena Hall in Carleton Place was a huge success. At full capacity with over 35 participants showcasing local health resources and estimates from 800 to 1,000 people in attendance; guests from across Carleton Place and the surrounding communities enjoyed free services while learning more about the range of health care services in Carleton Place. This initiative served to connect the community to quality services close to home.

access to specialist care. All of our recruitment and training efforts ensure that our patients get the right care at the right time closer to home. Technology continues to play a critical role in delivery quality care. We continue to invest in the adoption of an Electronic Health Record to ensure the safe and timely transfer of patient information between CPDMH and other community providers.

We are pleased to report that we have met our commitment to our ongoing capital plan. Working together with the Foundation and Auxiliary, the Hospital invested almost $800,000 to maintain a safe facility, upgrade our electronic information system and procure modern, medical equipment for patient care. We are further pleased to report that we have submitted a balanced budget for 2013/14. The Hospital will continue to provide quality services while maintaining an enviable, efficiency record.

The National Research Corporation (NRC Picker), a National Research Institute that measures patient experience, ranked CPDMH among the top performers in patient satisfaction in Emergency Department satisfaction. This success is attributed to our staff and physicians who daily demonstrate their commitment to creating an organization where patients and their families can experience responsive, innovative and exemplary care. An Employee Engagement Survey was completed this year. Overall results were excellent with R0012180751/0627

ENJOY THE SUMMER & YOUR GARDEN! Summer in the garden is a fantastic time. A time spent reaping the rewards of a spring full of hard work. All of the planning, preparing and planting is over for another year... or is it? Summer is still an excellent time for additions to those pesky troublesome spots in the yard. Contrary to popular belief, planting in the summer is still possible, so long as the homeowner is there to give water to the new transplant. Plants in containers, such as those purchased from your local nursery, have a well contained root system, and therefore will undergo little transplant shock when transferring into the garden. However, if the homeowner is planning vacations away from the home this summer, and will be home to water, perhaps leaving the planting until the fall, or next spring is better. Just remember to take time to sit back, relax, and enjoy the fruits of your labour. Summer is a wonderful time in the garden.

Well it is that time of year to pull out the rake and clean up the yard. Finally the weather is nice to be out in the garden! Great way to exercise - - - but if not done properly, injury could keep you from doing what you love.

MVFN celebrates 25 years encouraging love, knowledge of nature EMC News – The Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists (MVFN) held their annual general meeting (AGM) at the Almonte Civitan Club on May 16 followed by a very successful Spring Gathering event. The AGM was conducted by Ken Allison, president of MVFN, with attendance by the board and club members. Ken provided the membership with an overview of the organizations activities and finances over the last year. This is the club’s 25th year as an organization and during that time it has been very active promoting the understanding and awareness of the natural world in our community, with its popular natural history lectures series, canoe, hiking and birding outings, environmental programs for children and youth, and strong support for local conservation issues. The treasurer, Robert McCook presented the finances which show a well managed club which can continue to be very active. Ken introduced each of the board members for the coming year, and of special note is that Cliff Bennett, one of the founding members has once again been elected to the board where he will serve as vice-president for 201314. Cliff has been very actively involved with MVFN from it first days and will ensure it continues to be a vibrant and relevant organization. The AGM was followed by the wellattended and exciting Spring Gathering event. Starting with the reception, old friends and acquaintances shared drinks and chatted; many visited the Young Naturalists exhibit, the Reduce Plastic Bag campaign table and made bids on the silent auction items. The Almonte Civitan Club did an excellent job of providing top notch service and a very tasty meal. A special thanks goes out to all the volunteers, especially Rosemary McGinnis, this year’s event co-ordinator for MVFN.

Christmas Bird Count, enthusiastically guided the group through the evening culminating in a talk by Éric HébertDaly, executive director of the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society. Éric provided a passionate and insightful look at how conservation work was done traditionally such as through protected area campaigns, local land trusts, and renaturalization projects, and he explored how we might be more efficient and successful in the years to come through a shift towards a focus on ecological integrity, and methods such as land-use planning, network (versus islands) planning, multilateralism, and First Nations involvement to name a few. Eric fielded many interesting questions after his presentation, reflecting that our community is very engaged when it comes to the environment and conservation. It was a very successful and enjoyable evening, and everyone is reminded to put May 15 on their calendars for next year’s gathering. This summer, ongoing MVFN activities include the canoe/kayak program and annual summer walk, and the clubs’ monthly natural history lectures resume with a new series in September. Please see for details of these upcoming activities and for membership information. Iain Wilkes is the publicity chair for the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists.

The inaugural Calabogie Country Music Festival will take over Calabogie Peaks Resort June 28 to 30, featuring a talented group of country music stars, including the Ottawa area’s Kira Isabella, right. Isabella won the Canadian Country Music Association’s Rising Star Award in 2012 and will close the festival on Sunday, June 30. Above, Headlining Saturday’s performances will be Dallas Smith, who spent the last 10 years as the frontman for the band Default.


EMC Entertainment – Calabogie Peaks Resort will be buzzing this weekend with top Canadian country music stars at the inaugural Class Axe Guitars Calabogie Country Music Festival. Dallas Smith, Kira Isabella, and Jordan McIntosh are just a few of the exciting acts to hit the stage during the three-day event. The festival was conceived by the same team that organizes the wildly popular Calabogie Blues & Ribfest, which is heading into its third year. The Calabogie Country Music Festival will deliver top country music, on-site camping, beer gardens, food vendors, chairlift rides, a kids’ zone and more. Hailing from nearby Carleton Place, singer Jordan McIntosh is the latest sensation on the country music scene. He will headline the Friday night show at the festival, with well-known singer Leah Daniels as the opener. McIntosh, who has acquired a large fan base already, is sure to deliver a performance that will showcase that show-stopping talent. Dallas Smith is set to headline Saturday evening’s events. Numerous country bands, including Autumn Hill, Whitney Rose, The Working Class & Ryan Cook, will be taking the stage, beginning at noon leading up to the night’s big event, a performance by Canadian country music star, Smith. He delivers an outstanding show, which is a must-see for any country music fan. Smith spent the last ten years fronting the popular band Default, before stepping into a solo career in 2011. He released his solo debut country album, Jumped Right In, back in May 2012 and its first single, ‘Somebody Somewhere’, immediately soared up the Canadian Hot 100 charts. Sunday’s wrap up to the festival includes performances by Tim Chaisson, the ever-popular country band Silver Creek, Kerosene Creek, and local favourites, Ambush. Closing out the festival will be the exciting Canadian Country Music Award winner Kira Isabella. In 2012, Isabella won the Canadian Country Music Association’s Rising Star Award. Her debut CD quickly garnered national attention and she became one to watch in the Canadian country music scene. The festival grounds will open at 2 p.m. on Friday, June 28 with onsite camping. Music performances will commence at 7 p.m. More information and tickets can be found at www.calabogiecountry. com.

At the time there were many beautiful older English cars on the road there and I decided I wanted to own one. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I tracked down this 1960 Morris Minor convertible and bought it in August 1983. Interestingly, the previous owner had put an ad in Road & Track magazine, which was not on the newsstands until after I bought the car. I later bought the magazine, which included a photo of my car. Just after buying the car, I baked a cake that looked like the car and gave it to the previous owner. That was fun! â&#x20AC;&#x153;I drove this car as my only vehicle in Victoria for six years. I even took it one time through the mountains to Nelson, B.C., with no problems. I moved east in 1992, initially to Toronto, then in 1996 to Dundas. In 1997 I had the Morris sent here â&#x20AC;&#x201C; barge to Vancouver, train to Toronto, and flatbed truck that delivered it to my door on July 1, 1997. Since then, the car has been repainted with a new top and various other bits of work done. A few years ago, I visited the Morris Minor Centre in England and brought back a few parts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every August, the car with me and various friends over the years goes in the Dundas Cactus Festival Parade. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lots of fun and I hear lots of nice comments about the car. In the 2010 parade, we celebrated the carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 50th anniversary. This year, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be celebrating 30 years of ownership. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great, Bill, that you are so interested in old cars in Canada.â&#x20AC;?

The Algonquin land claim – capital transfer and lands Canadians can cancel wireless contracts

Robert Potts will be transparent and accountable to all Algonquin beneficiaries. The AOO will develop the governance structure, mandates and powers of these Institutions to ensure the most effective protection of all beneficiaries’ interests. Land has been critical to the way of life for the Algonquins and will play an important role in the cultural recognition and future economic sustainability of the AOO. The Preliminary Draft AIP establishes that Ontario will transfer not less than 117,500 acres of Provincial Crown Land to one or more Algonquin Institutions. This lands package consists of more than 200 parcels of land ranging in size from a few acres to more than 30,000 acres. The AOO’s proposed land selections were each chosen for the following purposes: (a) Historical/Spiritual

(b) Community Recreation and Environmental Protection (c) Economic Development, Resources, Tourist Commercial (d) Future Institutional, Residential, Industrial Development The Provincial Crown Land in the Settlement Area is 3.3 million acres. Nearly 2 million acres constitutes Provincial Parks, including Algonquin Park (1.8 million acres), where the AOO will have extensive management planning input. This leaves approximately 1.3 million acres of Provincial Crown Land to be considered for AOO land selections. The proposed lands package comprises approximately four per cent of the Provincial Crown Land in the land claim Settlement Area. Through the transfer of this land, existing access to cottages, private properties, or navigable waterways will not be lost or compromised, and no new First Nation reserves will be created. A Treaty will provide economic development opportunities that will not only benefit the AOO, but will also provide a tremendous benefit to our neighbours living within Eastern Ontario. This column is the second in a series providing insights into Algonquin history, the foundation for the land claim, elements of the Preliminary Draft AIP and next steps in the journey. The next column will focus on the Parks and Protected Areas component of the Preliminary Draft AIP. For more information visit Robert Potts is Principal Negotiator and Senior Legal Counsel for the Algonquins of Ontario.

after two years under new wireless code EMC News – On June 3, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) issued a wireless code that will make it easier for Canadians to understand their contracts and sets out their basic rights. The code will apply to new contracts for cell phones and other personal mobile devices starting on Dec. 2, 2013. “Every day, Canadians rely on wireless devices while in their homes, at their jobs, at school or travelling abroad,” said Jean-Pierre Blais, chairman of the CRTC. “The wireless code will contribute to a more dynamic marketplace by making it possible for Canadians to discuss their needs with service providers at least every two years.” The wireless code addresses the main frustrations that Canadians shared with the CRTC, which included the length of wireless contracts, cancellation fees, roaming charges and other industry practices. Among other things, individual and small business consumers will be able to: • Terminate their wireless contracts after two years without cancellation fees, even if they have signed on for a longer term. • Cap extra data charges at $50/ month and international data roaming charges at $100/month to prevent bill shock. • Have their cell phones unlocked after 90 days, or immediately if they

paid for the device in full. • Return their cell phones, within 15 days and specific usage limits, if they are unhappy with their service. • Accept or decline changes to the key terms of a fixed-term contract (i.e., two-year). • Receive a contract that is easy to read and understand. The wireless code will apply to all service providers in Canada. In particular, the code will apply in full to postpaid services (where customers pay a monthly bill after using their services), and where applicable to pre-paid wireless services. “The wireless code is a tool that will empower consumers and help them make informed choices about the service options that best meet their needs. To make the most of this tool, consumers also have a responsibility to educate themselves,” Blais added. The participation of a large number of consumers and the collaboration of the wireless industry will ensure the wireless code’s successful implementation. The CRTC’s public consultation attracted over 5,000 participants, including individual Canadians, who shared their views on an online discussion forum, in writing and at the public hearing held from Feb. 11 to 15.

THE EMC - 40 - Thursday, June 27, 2013



EMC News – The following is the second installment in a series of columns provided by the Algonquins of Ontario. As the Algonquins of Ontario (AOO) continue to work toward a modern day treaty, they look forward to a bright future of self-sufficiency, economic stability, and opportunities for current and future generations. Key elements of the current Preliminary Draft Agreement-in-Principle (AIP), released on Dec. 13, 2012 by the AOO, Ontario and Canada, include a capital transfer and land component. These elements are essential to build a long-term sustainable future for the Algonquin people, and respond to present day social, cultural and economic needs. The Preliminary Draft AIP states that Canada and Ontario will transfer $300 million to one or more Algonquin Institutions, which will be Trusts established for the benefit of the Algonquin beneficiaries. These funds will be transferred in three payments over a two-year period starting on the Effective Date of the Final Agreement. Income generated from the capital transfer will make a real and positive difference in the cultural and societal fabric of the Algonquin people by removing barriers for the creation of economic opportunities and social support programs. These funds will also lay a foundation for a rewarding and vibrant future for Algonquin youth by increasing employment opportunities and access to education and training. The Algonquin Institutions that will receive, manage and invest this capital

Director puts own spin on Raspberry clafoutis is tasty and healthy treat latest zombie apocalypse film MOVIE: World War Z STARRING: Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos, Daniella Kertesz, and Fana Mokoena DIRECTOR: Marc Forester RATING: 14A EMC Entertainment - I’ve discovered that if you’ve seen one zombie apocalypse movie then you’ve pretty much seen them all. Zombies quickly overwhelm mankind threatening humanity with extinction, and the few people left run for their lives desperately trying to survive. World War Z isn’t much different, but they do try to put their own stamp on it. Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt) and his family are stuck in traffic in downtown Philadelphia when the world comes apart at the seams. A plague that’s been ravaging the world hits the U.S. hard. Gerry, with some help from his former boss UN Secretary Thierry (Fana Mokoena) barely gets his family out of the country amidst the chaos. It started as a pathogen. It kills its host, and then re-animates it turning the infected into a mindless rage monster whose only purpose is to infect others. It’s turning humanity into zombies and there


isn’t a lot of humanity left. Thierry needs Gerry to go back to work, and find the source of this plague. Gerry is the best investigator the UN has. If anyone can track the source he can, and if they can find the source they might be able to stop the plague. The zombie apocalypse may have been done before, but World War Z tries to put a new spin on it. As the entire world is overrun by zombies, instead of broadening the scope of the film Forester narrows it. The story focuses on Gerry as he follows the clues and tries to solve the mystery of how the plague happened and how to stop it. It makes World War Z feel more like a mystery than a horror movie. I like the focus of the film, and the detective-style story. It adds a whole other level of tension to the zombie film. I like the effects, and I really like the explanation of the


zombies. The thing is the film moves to a very logical conclusion. The ending makes perfect sense for the story, but the most logical ending isn’t always the most exciting or satisfying ending. In truth I found it anti-climactic. Brad Pitt is very good at taking the fear, the terror and the desperation, and making them real for the audience. This film rides on Pitt’s shoulders. It’s his character that drives the film and it’s his performance that makes his character so compelling. Mireille Enos plays Karen Lane, Gerry’s wife. Her scenes are few but riveting. It’s a very believable performance. As Gerry travels across the globe seeking answers he teams up with an Israeli soldier named Segen. It’s an intense role and Daniella Kertesz makes the most of the opportunity. World War Z may not be the war movie you’re expecting, and the ending may be a bit of a letdown, but the film’s unique perspective and focus does give the zombie apocalypse a twist. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

Plan now to pay yourself for all retirement years Manage Your Money

Retirement is coming at you faster than you expected – but that’s okay because you expect those years to be fulfilling, brimming with new experiences and activities. And you will enjoy the retirement lifestyle you’ve dreamed about if you plan now to be sure you’ll have the financial resources you’ll need for all your retirement years. And that could be for a lot of years. According to Statistics Canada*, life expectancy for seniors has been on an upward trend over the last 15 years. The foundation of your retirement plan is your retirement income – so you need to know where it will come from and how much it will be. Check these sources: • The federal government offers: o the Canada Pension Plan/ Québec Pension Plan (CPP/QPP) that provides about 25% of your average annual earnings during your working life, up to certain limits. They are indexed annually for inflation and are taxable. o Old Age Security (OAS) benefits usually begin between age 65 and age 67. Benefits are taxable, indexed for inflation, and ‘clawed back’ in increasing amounts as your individual net income climbs above a

tax-reduction strategies like income-splitting, sharing CPP/QPP benefits with your partner, limiting fully taxable RRIF withdrawals, allocating assets effectively, using a Tax-Free Savings Account, and taking advantage of the tax-sheltering benefits of your RRSP by making your maximum contribution up to the end of the year you turn 71. You can build a retirement income that fits your lifestyle dreams and will last for all your retirement years when you have the right plan – and that should start with seeking advice and counsel from a professional advisor who has the expertise to keep you on the right financial track for your lifetime. *The Daily, Thursday, May 31, 2012 This column, written and published by Investors Group Financial Services Inc.

Packaged tourism experiences now available in Lanark County EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Consumers looking to book travel this summer are about to gain a greater awareness of the regional tourism experiences through the Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Highlands Tourism Organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (OHTO) summer consumer marketing campaign, Head to the Highlands. The campaign website, www.Headtothe-, and recently released Summer Travel Video Series on YouTube will reach consumers via a multifaceted promotion encompassing social, digital and traditional marketing, and will place getaway packages at the core of its strategy for enticing travellers to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Head to the Highlandsâ&#x20AC;? this summer.

Packaging has remained a strategic priority for the OHTO for the past two years; a commitment administered through the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s popular tourism workshop training program. The initiative provides businesses with the opportunity to participate in workshops designed to assist with developing and

marketing tourism packages. Most travel is booked online and packaging has become an effective way for tourism businesses to differentiate themselves from their competition. By expanding an offer to include all of the elements of a memorable travel experience, businesses are more likely to cap-

ture the attention of the consumer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re making it easy for consumers to select Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Highlands as their destination of choice by taking the hassle out of researching, planning and booking travel, explains Nicole WhitSee TOURISM page 43

Generators should not be brought inside the home for any reason.


Shops, in general will charge in the range of $80$120 per axle for this service, bringing a four-wheel total in the $160-$250 range with materials before tax. So what happens if you leave these units alone and skip the maintenance? Generally speaking, if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have this service done when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needed (and that should be based on a proper inspection, not necessarily some arbitrary time or mileage point) the brakes linings can stick in their tracks leading to uneven and accelerated brake wear. A complete brake relining usually entails replacing the front and rear brake pads and all four rotors (brake drums are usually a little more substantial in design and will last at least two lining replacements or more). Even with competitively prices parts and labour, these jobs easily hit the $1,000 mark or more if wheel calipers require replacement. So if a routine maintenance costing $250 extends the brake lining life as little as 25 per cent, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a break-even proposition. But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only the financial side of the equation. Brakes are one of the most crucial safety systems on any vehicle, and having them in tip-top condition will pay off in a currency far more valuable than money. A large recall is heading this way involving certain 1993-1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee and 2002-2007 Liberty SUVs. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) of the US these vehicles demonstrate a higher than acceptable risk of fires in the event of a rear-end collision due to the placement of the fuel tanks behind the rear axles. While no fires, injuries, or fatalities have been reported in Canada, it is expected that Chrysler LLC will follow the same process that they announced last week for their US customers. For those vehicles, a new trailer-hitch will be installed to improve the protection to the fuel tank in the event of a low-speed impact. If the vehicle already has a hitch, a dealer inspection is still required and if the hitch is found to be inadequate it will be replaced. Chrysler has expanded this action to include 1999-2004 Jeep Grand Cherokees. On this series of vehicles, if an aftermarket hitch is in place and it has any sharp edges, it will be replaced according to the Chryslerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s U.S. press release. As this recall is still in the preliminary stages itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unlikely that recall letters will be mailed out or parts will be made available for several

EMC Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; In a recent column we covered the topic of vehicle maintenance and how stretched-to-the-max automaker recommended schedules werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily the best things for consumers. Car builders in a rush to be as competitive as possible have extended the maintenance intervals on their vehicles in terms of mileage and time. As little as 10 years ago, an every-three-month or 5,000 km routine was pretty much the standard for just about all passenger cars and light trucks. Now, with the increased use of automated service reminder systems and this competitive stance, some automakers have up to 12-month intervals between services with less mention of distance travelled. While there still may be the same number of checkmarked line items at each service interval booklet page, more often than not, only the word â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;inspectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; appears beside the vehicle system with no indication of what if any preventative work should be done to ensure trouble-free driving. I thought it might be helpful to detail a few different systems on an average vehicle to reveal what the benefits are to routine maintenance and what might happen if you just leave things to themselves. Brakes: While lots of advances have been made in various systems on todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vehicles thanks to electronics and improved materials and assembly techniques, wheel brakes really havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t changed much in design or operation for well over 50 years. In fact if you account for lighter castings on brake calipers and support frames, lighter rotors or discs, the elimination of asbestos in brake linings, and more exposure to salt and grime thanks to open-spoked wheel rim designs, things have actually gotten stickier (pun intended) for brakes. So it shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a surprise when your service consultant comes to you, clipboard in hand, to let you know that having a brake service completed would be a good idea. First things first, what is a brake service? While shops differ in their approach to this, and will always explain exactly what they do, if asked, generally this is what is done on an average front-wheel drive car and what it costs: A technician will remove the brake linings and calipers from their mounts and remove any rust from the brake lining frame tracks, remove any excess rust from the disc or rotor edge, and lubricate the brake caliper slider pins and brake lining tracks. If the rear brakes are a drum type, the drums and brake shoes are removed and the contact points between the shoes and their backing plates are cleaned of rust and/or grime and lubricated and everything is put back together and adjusted properly.
