TARA GESNER A Carleton Place family was forced to flee its home early on June 26 as a result of a fire. The Ocean Wave Fire Company (OWFC) was dispatched to the home of the Melville family, located at 331 High St., just after midnight. Once on the scene, OWFC fire chief Pascal Meunier immediately initiated mutual aid from brigades in Beckwith and Mississippi Mills, with further assistance coming from the areas of Lanark, Perth and Smiths Falls.

“The fire was a stubborn one as older homes sometimes have complicated rooflines, which are more difficult to access during fires,” he told the Canadian Gazette. “The Ocean Wave Fire Company worked tirelessly to put out the fire, and firefighters were able to save the neighbouring home,” he told the Canadian Gazette. “They did a great job, and they were coordinated and collaborative with the other departments.” Meunier thanked the assisting fire departments, OPP and Lanark County EMS, “coming and working through the morning shoulder-to-shoulder with us at the fire.” According to the chief, the community really came together, with neigh-

bours making sure the family felt supported and offering drinks and snacks to firefighters. There were no injuries as a result of the fire and the cause remains under investigation. Firefighters were able to save the Melville family cat named “Kitty.” It was hiding behind the couch during the blaze. OWFC Capt. Matt Anderson reunited the feline with its owners. “We were all very happy we were able to get her out safely and reunite her with her family,” Meunier stated. The home is a total loss, and the monetary extent of the damage is not yet available. Mark Melville is grateful his family is safe, but they are still reeling after losing their home and all their personal belongings.

Speaking with this newspaper on June 28, Mark noted: “The most important thing I am telling people ... it is horrible, but good things will come from this.” The family is currently staying in a hotel. Mark is a teacher at Notre Dame Catholic High School in town, with his wife, Karen Melville, employed there in the main office. The couple is parents to five children, and an international student is staying with them. “We are all doing OK,” Mark said, and “we may have found a place for September to stay long term.” On Friday, he was on his way to a meeting regarding a place to live for July and August. However, if it does not pan out, the family requires a furnished home to rent with three or four bedrooms. Any leads can be for-

HAZELDEAN GARDENS ANNOUNCES In response to the growing need for care options to serve those suffering from Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, the Ottawa area’s premier retirement residence is introducing a new Day Program for Adults.

Melville family photo Members of the Melville family from Carleton Place, above, were forced to flee their High Street home on June 26 as a result of a fire. They are still coming to terms with losing everything. A GoFundMe page has been established by Pauline Gay. There is a goal of $10,000. warded to, which will be passed along to the family. “I just want some normalcy in my life,” Mark stressed. The Melville family has called Carleton Place home for 24 years, moving into 331 High St. eight years ago. When the fire broke out,

everyone was in bed sleeping except Karen. She was on the couch and heard the smoke alarms, alerting her family. When a fire starts, people have only seconds to react. Fires can double in size every 30 to 60 seconds. “I had my phone in my hand, a housecoat and a

pair of underwear,” Mark said. Meunier stressed: “This fire is another example of how important and effective working smoke alarms really are. They saved the lives of this family that morning.” There is a GoFundMe page for the Melville family, which was established by Pauline Gay. There is a goal of $10,000. The Melville family attends St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Carleton Place and the parish is planning a fundraiser; however, details are still being fleshed out. Once completed, they will be posted on or the St. Mary’s Facebook page. Anyone interested in helping with the fundraiser can contact the church at 613-257-1284. Mark said his family has donated to those in need in the past and is very thankful for the community support. "Being on the receiving end is very humbling.

Chanting 'Mental health matters,' and 'Cuts hurt kids,' hundreds rallied in front of the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) office in Brockville June 26, protesting cuts to para-professional employees. A total of 160 cuts were made, including 24 student support partners, also known as child and youth workers and behaviourists, after UCDSB trustees approved the cuts in the 2019-2020 budget June 19. Other job losses are 42 teacher positions, 30 education assistants, early childhood educators, English language learner instructors and instructional assistants, 22 school office support staff, 22 learning commons informationists, 11 speech language assistance positions, and more. The layoffs represent a 53 per cent cut to para-professionals within the UCDSB, according to one of the laid off employees, Jim

Mulville said many have held their positions for three to four years, some for 20. "There's no one to pick up that slack," Mulville stated. "They're (UCDSB) not implementing any new staff members. There's no mental health workers coming in, so whatever happens, it's with existing staff and they're already overtaxed with violence in our schools and other mental health issues, not to mention presenting a curriculum and worrying about academics. There's just no way that they can service 27,000 kids with the staff they have on hand." Mulville said student support partners are frontline workers who provided critical assistance to students in the areas of mental health, suicide prevention, access to outside agencies,

DIFFICULT DECISION UCDSB board chair John McAllister said the decision to make the cuts was a difficult one, but necessary to address the $11.7 million deficit the board, which governs 79 schools, is facing. He said that even with these changes, the board is still carrying a nearly $7 million deficit in the special education budget. "We have 4,200 employees, this only involves 24. Not to undervalue their work whatsoever, but student wellness is the responsibility of each and every principal, guidance counsellor, student success teacher, etc.," he said. "Kids who are in crisis, this group never dealt with them as such, that was the responsibility of a therapist and we'd work with

outside agencies such as Open Doors and CHEO to address some of these issues." There are no plans to replace the jobs, but that doesn't mean the board doesn't have a system in place, McAllister pointed out. He referred to the UCDSB's mental health plan and each school's student improvement plan for student achievement and wellness as guiding documents. "The Upper Canada District School Board has not abandoned its student wellness responsibilities and never will," he commented. "Students who were in trouble last year were treated and they're going to continue to be treated this year in the same way." To further address the special education overages, the board also approved a pilot "we hope will help us increase our revenue and decrease our costs." That program will see students in classes for part of the day, but withdrawn when they need treatment from an education assistant, teacher or social worker, then reintegrated into the classroom. "We think it's going to be a better service model for these students as well as other students in the class," McAllister stated. "It's not totally business as usual, but there's a high degree of normalcy," he continued. "We're open for business and we look forward to working with our students in the fall."


As it entered budget deliberations in May, the Upper Canada District School Board was facing an $11.7 million deficit, which has been followed by this newspaper. The 160 job cuts to partially address that deficit, will impact the supports students receive in the classroom.

homelessness, family trauma, and more. He said the board should be more worried about the well-being of its students than the deficit. "As an elected trustee, your job is to make sure the education system in your community is at its peak, at its best, servicing all," he commented, urging the board to "give our schools what they need and let the province come down and make those cuts." "They're doing the dirty work for the Ford government and it's shameful," Mulville added. In May, Leeds-Grenville-Thousand Islands and Rideau Lakes MPP Steve Clark announced a $927,495 increase to the UCDSB's provincial funding allocation (the largest in the board's history). They are set to receive $342 million from the province for the 2019-2020 school year, including a nearly $41 million grant for special education, "in light of their declining enrollment," Clark said in a press release at the time. "In the fall, the board came to me concerned about their financial situation following a transportation arbitration decision that left them in a deficit," he said. "I assured them that our government understands the needs of rural Ontario..." Mandy Steele, chief negotiator with OSSTFs District 26 bargaining unit, is also being laid off. She said while the UCDSB may think they're saving money, the impact will be felt elsewhere, possibly in the board's graduation rate. The UCDSB has a goal of raising its graduation rate to 90 per cent by 2020.

"We increase that (graduation rate) by having the supports to make that happen," she stressed. "If our students are struggling with mental health, struggling with addiction, struggling with anything that's preventing them from reaching that graduation, why aren't we putting those supports in to help them continue their education career?" The resources of community agencies will also be burdened, as well as social assistance, health care and the justice system, Steele expects. "It's not like a savings in education is a savings for the province," Steele said. "No, it's just transferring the need elsewhere."

He does not like to impose on anyone; however, he is facing the reality he is dying. "The life I have right now is not a life," Bob said. His grandson gives him the strength to keep fighting. For Darlene, the worst pain is watching your loved one deteriorate in front of you, being sick all of the time.

Additional information can be obtained by visiting "People need to specify on the form the testing is being done for Bob," Darlene indicated. Not knowing if anyone is being tested as a potential living donor is stressful for the Barry family. Why? "Because we know he is in dire need of a transplant," Darlene said.

Can you help Bob Barry? Bob, a resident of Beckwith Township in eastern Ontario, has end-stage decompensated cirrhosis, the result of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). He desperately needs a living liver donor or he will die, and time is running out. "I want to live," Bob said. Metroland Media first wrote about Bob in December 2018. "After the news article, approximately 15 people contacted us requesting a living donor application," Darlene Barry stated. Bob and Darlene have been married for more than 30 years. They have two adult daughters and a 16-month-old grandson. "I do not know if everyone sent in the forms, but five people advised me they had in fact been tested in Toronto, but their livers were all considered too small," Darlene said. The liver filters harmful substances from the blood and converts food and fluid into the nutrients and energy the body needs. It also helps clot the blood. "Simply put, Bob needs a man to step up to be tested," Darlene stated. "The potential donor needs to be five feet nine inches or taller and of solid stature." Several years ago, owing to his declining health, 54-year-old Bob was forced to give up a 30-plus year career in public service. He just could not do it any more, and it was difficult because he enjoyed helping people. Since Christmas, Bob's strength has deteriorated substantially due to a loss of muscle mass. "He has fallen and hurt

himself numerous times," Darlene noted. "He requires a cane or walker." At the moment, Bob is on a regimen of 21 pills a day, and Lactulose does its best to ward off hepatic encephalopathy, toxins building up in his bloodstream. "Bob is becoming encephalopathic more often," Darlene said. "He suffers from insomnia but can switch to sleeping for days from total exhaustion." In some cases, hepatic encephalopathy can lead a person to become unresponsive and slip into a coma. Alone, one of Bob's medications costs $1,500 per month. Of this, $500 is not covered by a health plan. Previously employed at Canadian Tire, Darlene is now Bob's full-time caregiver. Basically, every dollar counts. "He depends heavily on me as his caregiver ... medication, appointments and assistance with daily routine activities such as bathing, dressing and meal preparation," she said. "My wife is my rock," Bob said. Since 2014, Bob has been on the transplant list for both live and cadaver donation. To decide who needs a liver transplant most urgently, a Model for EndStage Liver Disease (MELD) score is used. Based on lab tests, a MELD score ranges from 6 (less ill) to 40 (gravely ill). Last summer, Bob had already reached 26. University Health Network (UHN), a health care and medical research organization in Toronto, operates a living donor program. UHN consists of Toronto General Hospital, Toronto West Hospital, Princess Margaret Cancer Centre and Toronto Reha-

Apart from the judge and the lawyers and bailiffs, no one really wants to be in a courtroom. Sometimes even the jury. Whether it's a civil or a criminal matter though, the arrival of a reporter in a courtroom can make already tense lawyers tense up even more. I know. I've seen it myself. By being in a courtroom, you're not catching people at their best. In fact, they're likely being judged for their worst decision ever. I've covered a case where a financial planner stole money from an elderly lady with dementia. Where a mental health nurse had sexual relations with one of his patients. Where a former nurse was charged (later found not guilty) with abusing young boys in their youth. Perth's first murder case in 20 years. And, worst of all, a case where a teaching assistant at a local elementary school plead guilty to possessing and viewing child pornography. That last one gave me nightmares for months - and I needed to talk to a therapist afterwards. So why do we do it? Why do we cover these trials? Everyone has a right to a fair trial. The public also has a

right to know. We are governed by Toronto Star guidelines that state that we "believe in freedom of expression and the public's right to know what is happening in the courts." Heading into court, we have to hold section 2(b) of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms (1982) about the "freedom of the press," as being equal to section 11 (d), which covers the right "to a fair and public hearing." Notice that word, public. We are not out to get anyone. We take what we do seriously. If there is a publication ban, we adhere to it (even if our lawyers are challenging it.) If charges are dropped, or added, we report on it. If we name someone upon their arrest, we have to commit to follow through until charges are dropped, or the person is convicted, or found not guilty. (As one journalism teacher told me: "No one is ever found innocent.") We do not publish the names of alleged sexual assaults, or of children in legal proceedings. In civil cases, we try to get both sides, and we are not on anyone's side, rooting for the police, or the defendant. We don't cover as many cases as we'd like, or as we used to. And no, we will not be your tool to settle a score in court. It's all there in the public record. And so while few people like to be in court, not everyone can be in court - but we can, and we are there in your stead. It's about trust. Our relationship with our readers is built on transparency, honesty and integrity. As such, we have launched a trust initiative to tell you who we are and how and why we do what we do. This article is part of that project. We welcome your questions and value your comments. Email our trust committee at Desmond Devoy has been a reporter with The Perth Courier since 2012

LETTERS & COMMENTARY I CAN'T HEAR YOU TO THE EDITOR: What is the difference between being punched on the nose or having your eardrum hit with equal force? Why is one automatically considered illegal and the other ignored? Both do damage and not just physically. Measurable spikes in blood pressure and anxiety are some of the hidden ill-effects of loud noise. These are the questions that go through my mind when I hear incessant barking from dogs or when a motorized vehicle that has had its muffler altered to maximize noise. I guess the owners think that the noise from their dogs or vehicles is different, it is charming and reflects their personalities. Leaving Fido in the backyard to bark at everything that moves or thinks

it hears requires energy and that use of energy saves the owners from having to walk them. It doesn't matter that the neighbours stay indoors more often against their will, or have to close their windows to minimize the irritation, or, to be able to hear the radio or TV. How can anyone with a heart object to barking from such a cute dog, at any time? And my machine has such a pleasant growl that everyone loves to hear it, even from four blocks away. How can they not appreciate the amplified mechanics? While I am on a rant, allow me to also complain against those that choose to use unnecessary leaf blowers and vacuums and other expensive noisy tools on a yard that not long ago was small enough to use a rake for all the re-

quired chores. It is one thing for lawn mowers, but to use a leaf blower in a small yard? I guess this is supposed to save time that will be spent at the local gym? Sometimes I think that living along the Queensway would be easier to deal with because that is what is expected at that location. However, living in a smallish town, this is more difficult to adjust to, and is not necessary. For those dog owners, not everybody needs to hear your dogs barking hours on end. And for those who choose to fiddle with their mufflers, put your ears closer to your noise making machines and say a silent prayer that you will not be deaf by the time you hit 60. And if you cause damage others, well, you will never know.

The environment of an office can colour the experience of a visit. For that very reason, the Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital (CPDMH) Foundation is delighted with the renovations to its office, located on the first floor of the CPDMH. Finally completed, "the renovations took place over the span of one year," CPDMH Foundation executive director Robyn Arseneau told the Canadian Gazette. Offices in health-care facilities do not need to be the design-challenged, clinical spaces they once were. They can be attractive and inviting. "The foundation office is now fantastically functional and engaging, inviting for donors and staff alike," Arseneau stressed. "This now enables us to raise even more funds for our hospital." Twenty years ago, the foundation space was designed to accommodate one employee; however, a second person was brought

on board four years ago. "There was absolutely no capacity for a second person," Arseneau explained. Rounding out the team today is donor relations coordinator Krista Simpson. "We do our utmost for our donors, making sure they are comfortable," Arseneau noted. "We really wanted a welcoming space." Prior to the makeover, several challenges existed: accommodating donors and community partners coming in to make donations; hosting confidential meetings; and storing confidential files and supplies, to name a few. Just over a year ago, the foundation partnered with local interior designer Kimberly Kostuch of KKI Designs Co. "She shared with us her passion and her immense support for our hospital," Arseneau said. "Kimberly brought her vision to life to better our workspace, allowing us to better support the needs of the hospital," she added. Kostuch designed the new space, and she reached out to her partners, seek-

ing a donation of their time, supplies, installation and services. The total value of the renovations is approximately $10,000. On behalf of patients, staff and community members, "I want to thank all of our amazing donors, making us more efficient," Arseneau said. "The more efficient we are, the more we can raise for the hospital." Helping to transform the foundation space: KKI Designs Co. (design and decor); Staples Business Depot (signage); Mississippi Flooring (flooring); Murrell Custom Painting (painting); Andy Brown Construction (cabinetry and furnishing); Aaron Brown Construction (cabinetry and furnishing installation); and Blind Depot and Decor (blinds). Arseneau also gave huge kudos to the CPDMH's senior team, maintenance and IT departments for their assistance during the renovations. On Wednesday morning, foundation and hospital staff gathered with donors and municipal leaders on June 26 to unveil the transformation, commemorating the occasion with a ribbon cutting. The new look is just in time to celebrate the foundation's 25th anniversary this year.

Father didn't know much about cars. The old Model T we got in a trade - gravel from our pit to fill a neighbour's culvert - in exchange for the car, which my older sister Audrey said had seen better days. My brother Everett drove it home when the deal was completed, and it took forever for Father to get behind the wheel. He cleared out the cut-

ter and an assortment of farm tools from an outbuilding close to the house, and ever after, it was called the drive shed. When the car was brought home, Everett drove it right into the drive shed, and there it sat for days. Father walked around it like it was a fox with the rabies, until Mother told him if he didn't start using it, she would be behind the wheel. She told Father at breakfast one morning, if she could drive a big Buick in New York City, she could sure manage what she called "that bucket of bolts" sitting in the drive shed! So Father finally got around to trying to start the Model T. He took the crank out from under the front seat, and I stood at the drive shed door, pretty sure the old car would blow to bits. He cranked and cranked and nothing hap-

pened. He sent me to fetch Everett, who was ordered to sit behind the wheel and pump on the choke while Father cranked. The crank took a spin, Father's arm flew in the air, and I was sure he was maimed for life. The German swear words came out of his mouth like bullets! But the car started and was shaking like someone with Saint Vitus' dance. His first trip out the lane was to Briscoe's General Store, with me in the back seat. He left the car running while he did his business just in case he couldn't get it started again to go home. After that first trip, there was no stopping Father. While Mother and Audrey thought the car should be used only for family trips, it wasn't long before Father was hauling sheep or pigs to market, and the smell inside the

Model T never left even driving with the window blinds rolled up, and with the air blowing through. Then came the Saturday night when Mother was able to scrape together enough money to take us all into Renfrew to the O'Brien Theatre. It was a Hop Along Cassidy show, and we would be driving back to Northcote in the dark. Just before we got into the car for the trip into Renfrew, Mother had a good look at the little lights on either side of the car and sent Everett to the barn for a lantern. And thank goodness she did! It was dark when we hit the Northcote Side Road, and so Mother lit the lantern. Holding it at arm's length out her side of the car, it was easy to see there was more light from the lantern than there was from the two little lamps attached to the side of the car.

None gave off much light, and sitting between Mother and Father in the front seat, with my three brothers and Audrey crammed into the back, I prayed we would get home in one piece. I said a silent thanks when we didn't meet one other car all the way back to the farm. Audrey said it was a miracle the old car held together. There was a round hole in the floor in the back where you could plainly see the Northcote Side Road as we drove along, and the fenders were all a different colour when the first owner tried to make the car look decent before the big trade-off. We never went more than a few miles without blowing a tire, and Father kept pouring water into the radiator as it spewed out white steam often before he could back it out of the drive shed.

One day Mother said Father should take the car into Thacker's Garage in Renfrew and have it checked over. He said as long as it was running, there was no need to spend hard-earned dollars on a car that was held together with wire and binder twine. He figured one day no amount of elbow grease would get it out of the drive shed. And that would be the end of it. As if he was talking about a member of the family, he said, "If she dies, she dies."

LYME CASES CLIMBING IN REGION EVELYN HARFORD ehar The Leeds, Grenville and Lanark region, along with the Kingston area, top the province's list in the number of new Lyme disease cases, which has been the situation for the last several years, according to the Leeds Grenville & Lanark District Health Unit. Between 2010 and 2018 there have been 582 confirmed and probable cases of Lyme disease in Leeds, Grenville and Lanark, according to data retrieved from the Integrated Public Health Information System (iPHIS) published on the health unit's website. While case counts decreased between 2017 and 2018, the health unit says the data still suggests a continuing upward trend from 2010. In 2015, there were 72 cases of confirmed and probable Lyme report-

ed in the region; in 2016, 52; in 2017, 219, and in 2018, 97. Those numbers are up from the 11 confirmed and probable Lyme cases reported in the region in 2010. The majority of Lyme cases in 2018 were reported in June. Some municipalities saw more confirmed diagnoses than others. Last year, nearly 16 per cent of the cases came from Tay Valley and Rideau Lakes 9.3 per cent. Nearly 19 per cent of cases did not have a usable address linked to them. Why has the region has seen an uptick in the tickborne disease? Well, there appears to be a perfect storm of factors at play. The health unit reports that it is because the region is on the flight path of birds flying from the northeastern United States to Canada. Susan Healey, the health unit's communications co-ordinator, ex-

plains that the birds pick up infected ticks from the northeastern United States and then the ticks fall off on this side of the St. Lawrence. She said this is how the bacteria that causes Lyme disease was brought to the region around 2008. Today, birds continue to spread ticks throughout the region. The region is also home to an abundance of whitefooted mice who are the reservoir for the bacteria. The larva (the first tick stage) take a blood meal from the mouse and become infected. The winter months are also milder, so more ticks can survive through the winter.

FIVE THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT CARLETON PLACE'S LABYRINTH Labyrinths are often referred to as confusing mazes, but that couldn't be further from the truth. They are symbols of peace, healing and spiritual transformation, and did you know there's one right in your own backyard? The Carleton Place Community Labyrinth, located at the corner of George and Baines streets and nestled in behind the

...going the

Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum, is an oasis in the bustling town. It's cared for by a volunteer committee, who host a series of special events throughout the year, raising awareness of the labyrinth's healing benefits. Most recently, the labyrinth observed its Summer Solstice Walk for Peace on June 21. Veteran pilgrim

and author Mony Dejeiji spoke to visitors. She completed the 800-kilometre pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago in Spain and she and husband Alberto Agraso also walked 5,000 kilometres from Rome to Jerusalem. She spoke about the inner peace she found on her journey. "I see life generally as a pilgrimage, which to me

It was officially dedicated in the community on June 18, 2010. 2. The local labyrinth is one of 4,000 worldwide which exist in Peru, Iceland, Egypt, France and the United Kingdom. It also participates in World Labyrinth Day each May, which was declared in 1998 by The Labyrinth Society. 3. The labyrinth was created on town lands, so it is a public space for the entire community to enjoy. They receive no funding and completely depend on

BIA GRANT TO HELP BUSINESSES IMPROVE ONLINE PRESENCE The Downtown Carleton Place Business Improvement Area announced June 25 that it has received a grant from Digital Main Street - an Ontario government program - to fund a Digital Service Squad to help main street small businesses improve their online capabilities. As part of Digital Main Street, the business improvement area (BIA) received a $10,000 grant from the Ontario government to establish a Digital Service Squad. The squad will consist of a trained dedicated specialist who will visit and assist BIA-area downtown businesses at no cost

to help them set up Google Business, conduct a digital-readiness assessment and apply for a $2,500 digital transformation grant. The squad will start visiting businesses on July 22. "It is inspiring that the Town of Carleton Place is celebrating 200 years of settlement, just as our downtown is entering into an era of focused digital transformation," said Kate Murray, Downtown Carleton Place BIA co-ordinator. "I would compare our current feelings of optimism and excitement to how the first settlers of 1820 may have felt. We are embarking on a new digital chapter. This is

an amazing opportunity for downtown Carleton Place and for the Town of Carleton Place as a whole!" A joint program delivered by the province's Main Street Enhancement Initiative and the Ontario BIA Association, Digital Main Street (DMS) helps improve how small businesses use digital tools and techniques to become more successful. Today's digital economy is vital to small businesses, and DMS will help them adopt new digital technologies from ecommerce and social media to back-office systems such as payroll and inventory.

"Our government is committed to helping small businesses improve their competitiveness, create jobs and attract investment," said Ernie Hardeman, Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs. "That's why I'm so pleased that businesses in downtown Carleton Place will benefit from the expertise of a Digital Service Squad to help small businesses embrace digital technology. Our investment in the Digital Main Street program will help to ensure that Ontario is open for business and open for jobs." Digital Main Street of-

Digital Transformation Grant - There are 2,000 grants of $2,500 each available to qualifying small "main street" businesses across Ontario to help them adopt new digital technologies. .

HUB HOSPICE PALLIATIVE CARE FEELING THE LOVE The board of Hub Hospice Palliative Care is feeling a lot of gratitude. You, the people of North Lanark, including Mississippi Mills, Carleton Place and beyond, have shown your unwavering support of the work we do to help people who have been diagnosed with a life-limiting or terminal diagnosis. And we thank you! Our annual Tree Sale raised more than $6,000 and will help beautify our community, as well. There is a gentleman in Almonte who has purchased a tree (or two) every year since we've started. And word gets out - one gentleman travelled

986 kilometres round-trip from Dundas, Ont., to Almonte to purchase five Comfort Maple trees. This yearly event wouldn't be as successful without the willing help of Ed Lawrence, Ron Ayling and Alan Goddard, to name just a few. Hike for Hospice, which is part of a national initiative, attracted the highest number of participants in its seventh year. In spite of a grim forecast, the weather was perfect for walking the beautiful trails at the Mill of Kintail. Many brought along their children, or strolled with their furry friends trotting along beside them. The barbecue

and petting zoo were greatly enjoyed by the hikers. In conjunction with the hike, there was an auction held through Facebook. Thanks to Puppets Up!, the Belles of the Balls Knitting Group and Marie-France Bonenfant-Kusters, we had a unique variety of items to suit every taste. All our numbers are not in yet, but we will add about $10,000 to our coffers. New this year was our rain-barrel sale. We were delighted with the response to this sale: we sold more than 200 barrels and a good number of additional items. We were pleased to be able to offer these handy

0 % | $0 .99


items at a very good cost, and the response showed us that this was something people wanted. Early calculations indicate approximately $3,000 was raised with this effort. Very exciting over the past year was the number of people who contacted our organization with offers to undertake events to raise money for us. With help and guidance from Pattie Dolan, artist Ruby Ewen donated 50 per cent of all sales, after her art sale in Almonte. Laurette Lafleur, another local artist, offered a portion of sales from her art sale in Carleton Place.


Almonte's Surya Daya Yoga & Wellness donated the proceeds of a special yoga class, and Dai Bassett entertained listeners at the Community Presbyterian Church, in support of Hub Hospice Palliative Care (HHPC). Judy Joannou Designs is running a silent auction in her shop until Aug. 4, with all proceeds coming to HHPC. And one of our new board members, Phyllis Moore, sold handcrafted birdhouses and suet feeders created by a friend, and banana gumdrop bread for HHPC. Together these wonderful folks have raised well over $5,000 so far.

The funds are making a difference: Our visiting volunteers made 650 home visits totalling more than 1,300 hours in the past year. To better support our elders living in long-term care homes in our community, we have introduced two designated visiting teams: one at Fairview Manor and one at Almonte Country Haven. In just 3½ months, these volunteers have logged more than 143 visits. We've also been able to expand our programs that support those who are grieving and to provide public education. The board of HHPC - and the clients we help - are grateful beyond measure.

On Saturday, the 22nd of June 2019, Bruce Anderson passed away peacefully at the Ottawa General Hospital after a long and stoic fight with kidney disease. He was born on the 15th of August, 1946 in Lethbridge, AB to William and Helen (née Patterson) Anderson (sisters: Judy [d], Janet and Jane). He received his Master of Business Administration from Stanford University in 1972, graduating with distinction. He worked principally as a civil servant (Canada Post and Royal Canadian Mint), and entrepreneur. Bruce is survived by his son Casey Anderson (Stacey Begg). Bruce was an intelligent, authentic and passionate man, who committed himself wholeheartedly to whatever struck his interest. Proudly, he was the Editor of The Gauntlet (University of Calgary’s newspaper) and won the Fraser Institute of Canada Prize in 1992 for his research into the lifecycle of coins, seeking to achieve economies for the government. He loved soccer, refereeing throughout the Ottawa Valley for over ten years, and volunteering his time as a coach and executive member of the Almonte Soccer Club. He adored the theatre, performing under the stage name “G.A. Bain” in a variety of companies in both Almonte and Ottawa, though never fully realizing his life’s ambition of playing “Matt” in Talley’s Folly. He will always be remembered for his stories, wit and generosity. He will live on in the memories of those who cherished his inimitable style, joie de vivre and hunger to “always leave them laughing”. Bruce longed to return to nature, and his ashes will be spread on camping trips in Gatineau and Alberta this summer. Those wishing to remember Bruce are requested to donate in his name to the Ottawa Gladstone Theatre or Almonte General Hospital.

McDOUGALL, William Ray The family of the late Ray McDougall would like to express our deepest appreciation to our family, friends, and neighbours. We would like to say thank you for all your condolences and kind words of sympathy, and for the donations made in Ray’s memory.

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Terry, peacefully, in Orchard View by the Mississippi, Almonte, ON. Son of the late Ned and Doris (née Hutchison) Currie, predeceased by his darling wife, Shirley (née Jones). He will be greatly missed by his brother Pat (Joan) and sister Jean, as well as his sons Bill (Rosina) and Dan (Aamina), and daughters Maureen (Dave) and Michelle (Alejandro), and his grandchildren, who all made him proud. Sadly missed by his companion, Lucille Hillier-Kean, as well as his nephews and niece, and his many friends and neighbours. Born in Cranbrook, B.C., Terry spent most of his life happily on the Currie homestead near Panmure, ON. As a young man he enjoyed baseball and hunting. He graduated from SS#3, a one-room schoolhouse on the 3rd Line, to attend Arnprior DHS, and from there to St. Patrick’s College in Ottawa. He began his career teaching in Chesley, Ontario, but soon returned to the Valley to teach French at Almonte DHS. There he made life-long friends, and had many happy years teaching and enthusiastically coaching football. That was also where he met a young fellow teacher, Shirley, whom he pursued until she happily agreed to marry. As a ‘hobby’ farmer, Terry spent many hours on the tractor, with a chainsaw, and repairing fences. His retirement from teaching did not mean a retirement from football or farming, and he spent many further seasons coaching his beloved Thunderbolts, as well as briefer stints with the Arnprior Redmen and West Carleton Wolverines. He helped found Almonte Celtfest and Almonte Alumni to support the school. Always full of life, Terry loved to dance, especially Ottawa Valley square dancing, and was an inveterate traveler who was always planning his next trip. Terry had a life-long passion for telling the story of the people of the Ottawa Valley. He was awarded the Canada 125 medal for his history of St. Peter Celestine’s church in Pakenham, Rock of Faith. He earned his M.A. in history from U. of Ottawa in 2005; the result of his studies was the book The Ottawa Valley’s Great Fire of 1870. Terry became a regular member of the Fitzroy Township Historical Society, serving as President and Past President. He often gave tours of St. Peter Celestine’s. Friends may pay their respects at C. R. Gamble Funeral Home & Chapel Inc. (127 Church St., Almonte, ON. (613-256-3313) On Monday, July 1st, from 2:00 - 4:00 and 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. A funeral mass will take place at St. Peter Celestine’s Catholic Church, Pakenham, ON. Tuesday, July 2nd, at 11:00 a.m., followed by interment in Indian Hill Cemetery and a reception at the Stewart Community Centre, Pakenham. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to the Almonte Thunderbolts, via Thunderbolts Alumni, or the Terry Fox Foundation would be appreciated. Condolences & Tributes:

Love and best wishes from their family.

They say there is a reason, They say that time will heal, But neither time or reason, Will change the way we feel. For no one knows the heartache, That lies behind our smiles, No one knows now many times, We have broken down and cried. We want to tell you something, So there won’t be any doubt, You’re so wonderful to think of, But so hard to be without. We cannot bring the old days back, When we were all together, The family chain is broken now, But memories live forever. A year has passed and it is still hard to believe that Keith is gone. The support that we have received from family and friends is what has helped us to get through each day. He had such a presence about him. If you met him you remembered him, if you knew him you loved him. We have missed Keith every day and will miss him every day until we see him again. What we wouldn’t do for one more kiss, one more hug, one more smile, one more laugh, one more rev of the engine or beep of the horn, one more, “ I love you” one more “I love you Mom.” Always on our minds, forever in our hearts, loved beyond words.

In loving memory of David Brown July 4, 2016 It’s only been a few short years, But it feels like yesterday, As we miss and love you so very much. They say time heals but it’s not what we are finding. We gave to you our love, you can only guess How much you gave to us in happiness. We thank you for the love you have shown. But now it’s time for you travel alone. So we will grieve for you, for grieve we must. Then let our grief be comforted by trust. It’s only for a while that we must part, We miss and love you so very much. Though we can no longer see or touch you, Your lasting smile is forever, Now God has you in his keeping, And we have you in our hearts. Love and so missed Mom, Dad, Cath, Steve, Taylor and Bryson

WATT, David 1957 - 2008 45 years ago we took our vows “Till death do us part”. For some today is just another day. For me it marks 11 years since I held you for the last time. As I watched you slip away. The pain of losing you, is as real today as it was then. I look at our daughters; in them I find strength; a need to move on, a girl and a boy our family has grown. A life without you is all they’ve known. None on earth can take your place, You are gone but will never be forgotten. Happy Anniversary Sending you all my love.
