Graham Beasley races to take place July 14

COMMUNITY

By KELLY KENT kkent@perfprint.ca

Events – Keep your eyes peeled for swimmers, cyclists and runners in Carleton Place this weekend as the 19th annual Graham Beasley triathlon and duathlon events storm the town on Sunday, July 14. Athletes from as far away as Montreal come to compete in the races, which are named after the late Ottawa duathlete Graham Beasley, who Cheryl Shore, the race director for the event, says embodies the spirit of the friendly competition. “He was a great guy,” she said. “He would stop to encourage runners who were struggling, pat them on the back and say, ‘You can do it! Keep going!’” Shore said she encourages locals to come out and watch the events and cheer on runners as they pass; something Carleton Place residents are already known for. “This race is known for being a very friendly race,” Shore remarked. “I remember one year it was so hot out and racers were really struggling, but homeowners along the race routes were turning on their sprinklers and hoses to refresh (the competitors) as they went by.” Shore said locals have even been known to give out cold bottles of water to runners as they passed their houses. “We’ve had racers comment on that before,” said Shore. “They like the friendly, small town feeling.” The first race begins at 8:45 a.m. on Sunday at Centennial

Park, where swimmers in the first wave of triathlons will begin their races. While the routes will take athletes into the centre of Carleton Place, Shore said roads will not be closed to traffic. She indicated that Search and Rescue Global 1 and the OPP will be directing traffic during the events, but she urges drivers to be extra cautious on race routes. “During the races there will be athletes everywhere. It’s really organized chaos,” said Shore. Also taking place on July 14 are the Carleton Place Heritage Runs, which are divided into three categories: 5K, 10K and a 1K race for children 11 years of age or younger. Shore said proceeds from these events will be donated to the Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital. Several local businesses will be contributing to the events, either through sponsoring races or donating services. For example, Shore noted that Ballygiblins will provide lunch after the event for Olympic distance race competitors and volunteers. Volunteers are the backbone of these events, and Shore said that every race could always use more of them. “We need volunteers for turnaround points and water stations and things like that,” she stated. Anyone interested in helping out during the races can contact Shore at casey.1993.winner@ gmail.com. Athletes can sign up for any events up until the morning of July 14 by going to www.somersault.ca/eventgrahambeasley. htm.

Fluoride will continue to be added to town’s drinking water By TARA GESNER tgesner@perfprint.ca

Almonte Lawn Bowling Club marks 100 years. — Page A/CP26 & 27

News – For Carleton Place town council, status quo is the way to go. The long-standing practice of adding fluoride to the drinking water in Carleton Place will continue. Council carried a staff recommendation, based on the

advice of Dr. Paula Stewart, medical officer of health at the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit, at the policy review committee meeting on June 25. Carleton Place has fluoridated its water supply since 1966. The recent conclusion followed an animated discussion, in addition to an education session

for municipal leaders on June 4. Speakers included Stewart, Dr. Peter Cooney (Health Canada’s Chief Dental Officer), Rob J. Fleming (president of Canadians Opposed to Fluoridation) and Sheldon Thomas (retired Manager of Water Distribution for the City of Hamilton). With the next municipal election just over 15 months away, a

decision whether or not to move forward with a plebiscite (referendum) regarding the removal of fluoride in the town’s water was required no later than April 2014. Discussion For nearly 20 minutes, councillors conversed about the contentious issue.

Citizens and businesses currently receiving federal government cheques have the next four years to register to receive payments by direct deposit. Enrolment forms can be obtained from the Receiver General website, or from federal departments responsible for the payment to be received by direct deposit.

Mobile breast cancer awareness centre visits Merrickville By JENNIFER WESTENDORP jwestendorp@perfprint.ca

News – A 46-foot long pink bus is enough to get anyone’s attention. The residents of Merrickville were subject to such a sight on July 5. The mobile breast cancer awareness centre travelled to the Rideau Community Health Services Centre in Merrickville as part of their Pink Tour. “On the bus, there’s information about breast health and breast screening,” said Sandra Palmaro, chief executive officer of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) – Ontario Region. “There’s mobile information on site.” This is the second year the mobile breast cancer awareness bus has toured the province with the hope of educating people on the importance of screening and general breast health. Last year, the bus visited 130 locations and provided information to 35,000 people. The bus has changed from last year, offering more information about risk reduction and high risk factors. “There’s also a video camera right on the bus where people can share their personal stories,” said Palmaro. The tour officially began on June 26 and will run until Oct. 6. The last stop is scheduled for Toronto, so the bus will be on site for the CIBC Run for the Cure breast cancer fundraiser. “Depending on the stop, we get anywhere from 50 to 2,000 people stopping by to see the bus,” said Palmaro. The bus has visited 12 locations so far, including Brockville, with plans to visit a further 78 towns across the province. They hope to have more than

Above, from left: Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark, 30,000 experience the centre during the tour. “It’s a combination of big cities and small towns,” said Palmaro. “We try to reach remote communities that have trouble getting information about breast

Screening Program who can book mammograms on site for people,” said Palmaro. The concept of a mobile breast cancer awareness center started in Nova Scotia. As a result of the initial tour, health care professionals in Nova Scotia saw a 10 per cent increase in breast cancer screening. According to a press release from the CBCF, mortality rates for breast cancer are decreasing due to early diagnosis and improved treatments, but “one in nine Canadian women will still be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. While women aged 50 to 74 can receive a mammogram without a doctor’s referral and at no cost, currently only 61 per cent of women in Ontario are being screened and research shows that women are not aware that they can take steps to reduce their risk of breast cancer.” “We’re just analyzing the numbers from last year, but there’s definitely been an increase of understanding benefits of getting screened and increase in screening in Ontario,” said Palmaro. The tour is funded primarily by Shoppers Drug Mart and CIBC, which enabled the organizers and participants to focus their attention on educating the public rather than fundraising. “It’s great to have their support,” said Palmaro. “It’s important that people don’t have any reservations about coming to visit us and not feel any barriers about getting involved in breast cancer screening.” For more information on the Pink Tour, visit www.thepinktourontario. com.

Mike Maloney proudly stands next to his 1966 Austin-Healey, left, which, along with Barry Splaine’s 1966 Thunderbird, above, will be among the classic cars on display at the Classic Theatre Festival’s season opener July 13 in Perth.

Swing back to 1966 with Classic Theatre Festival opener Now Serving Dinner both romantic and otherwise, as issues such as social change, patriotism and the nature of love are played out. In typical Neil Simon style, the writing is sharp and funny, the characters inherently lovable, and the story one that could apply to our current daily lives. Indeed, Simon’s show, written almost 50 years ago, could just as easily apply today to the Americans’ red state-blue state divide, in which conservatives and liberals continue to duke it out in elections and congressional debates. Smith reminds audiences that ultimately, the play is about the power of love to transcend differences, a valuable lesson in uncertain times. ‘The Star-Spangled Girl’ runs until Aug. 4, Wednesday to Saturday at 8 p.m., with 2 p.m. matinees each Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. Each matinee is preceded by a 1:30 p.m. pre-show talk under the trees at the back of the theatre. Folks looking for a bargain can buy a season pass: by purchasing one regular ticket to the show, they will receive a 25 per cent discount off the season’s second show, a comedy of madcap marital mayhem, ‘The Marriage-Go-Round’ (running Aug. 9 to Sept.1).

get a sense of the style of the mid-60s, and these are the kinds of cars that were on the road a lot when our characters were ‘doing their thing’,” Smith explains. ‘The Star-Spangled Girl’ is the story of Andy and Norman, two free-thinking magazine writers who are dedicated to changing the world, a not uncommon trait of the ’60s generation. Their apartment features a banner that reads “A Remedy for a Sick Society,” a tribute to their magazine, Fallout, which analyzes the problems of society and seeks solutions. Their walls are also adorned with icons of the era from actors Julie Christie and Anouk Aimee to pictures of Martin Luther King, Jr., and folk singer Joan Baez. Close friends since high school, Andy and Norman (played by actors Trevor Pease and Richard Gélinas) eke out a living in an apartment whose rent is perpetually late (something they get away with because Andy entertains the outrageous landlady downstairs). Their lives are turned upside down when a conservative southern belle moves in next door, the inimitable Sophie Rauchsmeyer (played by returning festival actor Kate Gordon).

Entertainment – In a testament to the fact that Herb Alpert and Herman’s Hermits never go out of style, the Classic Theatre Festival’s season opener on Saturday, July 13 at 8 p.m. will be a celebration of 1966, complete with classic cars of the era, an opportunity to dance “The Freddie” and the “Hanky Panky,” and to enjoy the Neil Simon comedy ‘The Star-Spangled Girl’, set in San Francisco during the middle of that turbulent decade. “With each opening of one of our shows, we try and take the audience back to the time period in which the play is set, to give them a sense of the look, feel, and sound of the era,” says Laurel Smith, festival artistic producer. “With this show, it is an era that is recognizable to a lot of people because it is during the middle of the rock and roll renaissance, combined with the rapidly changing mores of youth culture, with all the passions and commitments that entails,” she says. Based this summer at the Full Circle Theatre at 26 Craig St., Perth, the festival’s opening night will feature a 1966 Thunderbird owned by Barry Splaine and a 1966 Austin-Healey convertible owned by Mike Maloney, among other vehicles expected to be on display. “When you see these cars, you really

Charity golf tournament scores big for CDSBEO students EMC News – The Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario (CDSBEO) hosted the sixth annual Good Samaritan Trust Fund (GSTF) Golf Tournament on Wednesday, July 3, at the Smiths Falls Golf and Country Club. The tournament raised more than $16,400 to help CDSBEO students in need. Established in 2007, the Good Samaritan Trust Fund offers financial support to Board students and their families. The fund offers provisions in situations which cannot be remedied by organizations such as food banks, snow suit funds, or breakfast clubs. It fills a support void which is not defined or restricted to one specific need. Director of Education, William J. Gartland, expressed his thanks to tournament supporters. “This tournament has become our flagship fundraiser for the GSTF. It is so important for us to be able to provide this unique support system for our students, and their families,” he said. GSTF committee vice-chair, Jamie Mannion, thanked those in attendance for their contribution to the fund. “It is tough to see the difficulties that some families must deal with,” he said. “The need throughout the board is extraordinary, and we thank you all for

Canada’s National Fishing Week runs from July 6 to 14

Recent rainfall means high water levels, flows News – As a result of significant rainfall received over the past few days, flows and levels have increased substantially in the western part of the watershed. As such, levels on the upper lakes will continue to remain high for at least the next week and any significant rainfall during that period may aggravate the current conditions. Water levels and flows along the lower Mississippi River will remain high as this water passes through the system. The Mississippi Valley Conservation (MVC) flood forecasting and warning

program monitors weather conditions and snowpack water content, estimates expected river flows and water levels and issues flood advisories or warnings as required. MVC provides early warning and continuous monitoring to municipal and provincial emergency response personnel through a flood event. Daily water levels and flows are available on the MVC website at www. mvc.on.ca. Submitted by Mississippi Valley Conservation.

In addition to being a major media event across Canada, National Fishing Week includes hundreds of grassroots fishing events for children, families and outdoor enthusiasts. Organizers recognize that fishing is one of the most affordable ways for families to escape the challenges of every day life and create lasting memories. Plus, recreational fishing is great for Canada’s economy. National Fishing Week is supported by Catch Fishing, a national program dedicated to encouraging Canadians to get outdoors and enjoy our angling heritage throughout the year. It is supported by federal, provincial and territorial governments, as well as hundreds of organizations and businesses that work hard to ensure sustainable fishing opportunities while safeguarding fish populations everywhere. To find out more about Catch Fishing and National Fishing Week, visit www.catchfishing.com. The Canadian Sportfishing Industry Association just released ‘Keep Canada Fishing – The Economic Facts About Recreational Fishing.’ Available at www.csia.ca, the document shows that recreational fishing is one of the top five outdoor activities in Canada and is an annual $8.3 billion industry.

Events – It’s finally here! Canadians are preparing to celebrate their angling heritage. National Fishing Week (NFW), July 6 to 14 is an annual event that celebrates one of Canada’s favourite recreational pastimes: fishing. But more than that, NFW celebrates the adventures families and nature lovers alike are finding on Canada’s countless waterways. Canada offers more than one million lakes, rivers and streams, three oceans and one of the most diverse natural environments on the planet. Fishing offers Canadians an opportunity to experience this vast landscape for themselves. Whether they’re seeking a little serenity, a getaway with family, or a heart-pounding adventure on the water, fishing offers it all. So far, preparations for National Fishing Week have been a huge success. Thousands of ‘Catch Fishing: Your Basic ‘How To’ Guide to Fishing in Canada’ booklets have been sent out to grandparents, parents, and children all over the country. The booklet can be ordered by visiting www.catchfishing.com and filling out an online form. Additionally, rod and reel giveaways are occurring at Canadian media outlets everywhere. Because of this, Canadians will have the knowledge and opportu-

CPHC, Lanark, Leeds and Grenville move begins Aug. 12 By DOREEN BARNES

News – The Community and Primary Health Care, Lanark, Leeds and Grenville’s move to the new building is scheduled to begin Monday, Aug. 12 with a domino effect – with all services, programs and departments in the new building a week later. This announcement came at the annual general meeting on Thursday, June 27 as guest speaker, engineer and presi-

dent of Graham Bird Associates, Graham Bird, gave an update on the capital project. Bird said it was a privilege to work with all the individuals associated with this CPHC project. “We are a couple of months from actually operating in the new facility,” said Bird. “We are several weeks away from people being picked up and moved from their present facilities into the new one.”

He referred to phase one which is the centre for the two organizations, CPHC and CPHC - Family Health Team. “The second part of the dream you will see later in a drawing as it is being sketched now,” said Bird, “with the apartments and respite care.” To manage and maintain the facility, Star Group International has been chosen. This company will be responsible for the operation, cleanliness, required maintenance, life cycle of programs and

security aspects. “Wills Transfer from town has been selected to help us get everybody up and get all the equipment up during the night, move it here so people can be

working one place one day and show up here at the new facility the next day,” indicated Bird. “Hopefully the effort here is to make a very seamless transition from what is, to the new.”

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

No good reason Ontarians losing green space to insect, weed infestations Editor’s note: The following letter is in response to a column (‘Provincial flower dominates landscape this spring’) by Jeff Maguire, which appeared in the May 23 edition of the EMC. DEAR EDITOR: Jeff Maguire did a great job of describing the state of green spaces across Ontario since a pesticide ban was implemented in 2009 in his recent column. I’d like to expand on some of the information he provided. When it comes to safety, all pesticides – whether it’s pesticides used by homeowners in their yard or by farmers on their crops – must be approved by Health Canada before they can be sold in Canada. This process involves a comprehensive set of over 200 tests and a review of all scientifically credible studies that exist to ensure that the product will not cause harm to people, animals or the environment. Healthy and well-maintained green spaces beautify urban environments, attract wildlife, help reduce noise pollution, produce oxygen, capture urban pollution and reduce the warming effect of hard surfaces like concrete and asphalt. In fact, one healthy lawn produces the cooling

effect of 8.75 tons of air-conditioning which is enough to cool about two homes for a year. Maguire isn’t alone in being fed up with the pesticide ban in Ontario. A poll of Ontario homeowners shows over half feel the Government of Ontario did not do the right thing by implementing a ban and they would rather have the ban scrapped or modified. The polling also found that many Ontarians are mixing potentially dangerous concoctions on their own or willfully breaking the law by using pesticides that have been banned to protect their lawns and gardens. The fact of the matter is that pesticides used on lawns and gardens are designed as tools to address specific pest problems infesting valuable landscapes. There’s no good reason that Ontarians are losing their green spaces to insect and weed infestations, especially since Health Canada says they can be safely used. Lorne Hepworth President, CropLife Canada

COMMENTARY

Supporting young entrepreneurs Editorials – There’s nothing like being your own boss and five young entrepreneurs from across Lanark County will find that out firsthand this summer. The Summer Company program, which mentors and educates young people in considering entrepreneurship as a viable career option, recently kicked off for the year. In its 13th year of encouraging youth to run their own businesses, the program is an initiative of the provincial government but is administered by the Small Business Advisory Centre for Smiths Falls/Lanark County. This summer, area residents should keep their eyes peeled at local farmers’ markets and craft fairs where they can purchase a handmade beaded European-style bracelet or molded beeswax candles and products. Or they can sample cool ice cream treats, pick up some firewood, or have a custom charcoal portrait created. One of the great bonuses about the Summer Company program is the variety of business opportunities youth embark on. This is something more youth between the ages of 15 and 29 should be exploring. Throughout the program, participants receive handson training and mentoring, to put them on the path towards success, which includes learning how to form your own business plan. There’s another big incentive to give Summer Company a try as well: students receive up to $1,500 to help with the start-up costs of their businesses, and an additional $1,500 once they return to school in September. Invaluable business advice, the opportunity to make money and learn the ins and outs of being your own boss is a concept worth supporting.

Young Mary always worried there wouldn’t be enough food Lifestyle – The sauerkraut barrel was just about empty in the summer kitchen. It has served us well since the early fall when the whole family spent many evenings shredding cabbage to fill it to the brim. The salt pork barrel was empty too, and had been thoroughly washed and set out on the back stoop to sun-dry. The smallest of the three barrels had long since given up the last pickled herring. Even the vegetables in the root cellar were getting scarce. Now, what were we to do, I wondered? Would we starve? It would be many weeks before we would have carrots and potatoes from the garden. Now I had something else to worry about. Back then, it seemed, I could find many issues to send me into a state of anxiousness. Mother said I was born with furrows in my brow, whatever that meant. And worrying if we had enough food to keep us alive was constantly on my mind this time of year. I took my concerns to my sister Audrey. She always seemed to have an answer for everything. At first she laughed

out loud when I asked her if we were about to starve since all the barrels that once held our daily sustenance were empty. Then she saw that I was sincerely worried and she took me to the old swing in the grape arbour to give me a long talk on how I was worried for nothing. At that very moment, she pointed out, wasn’t our bake table full of freshly baked bread? Weren’t there enough loaves there to last us most of the week when Mother would again bake up another batch? So there would always be sandwiches and always there would be bread pudding for dessert. And in the smoke house, wasn’t there slabs of back-bacon and roasts of pork, and sausage links, enough to feed half of Renfrew County? “Stop worrying, Mary,” she said. “We won’t starve.” And of course, my wiser sister Audrey was quite right. Soon there were sprigs of new lettuce showing in the garden. Enough to take to the dinner table and for lettuce sandwiches which I loved with a passion.

Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

Fresh lettuce, with a spattering of sugar and vinegar between two slices of buttered freshly baked bread. Now, that was a treat! And one which I dearly loved. And then Audrey took me down into the dugout under the house. I had told her the last time I had gone down with the dish pan to bring up vegetables for supper, I had to dig away in the sand before I found a carrot. Audrey pointed to the shelves down there that for generations held preserves and pickles. And there on those shelves were enough glass jars, still full of beans in brine, onions hanging in mesh bags, and sealer after sealer of preserved raspberries, crab apples and wild blueberries.

“Now do you think we are starving?” Audrey asked. And of course, my much older, and much wiser sister was right. Just because the barrels in the kitchen were empty, there was still food aplenty to last us until the garden was ready. I could put my worries aside. And I recalled what my father always said when he was discussing the issues of the day: “It’s a poor farmer indeed, who can’t keep food on the table to feed his family.” Although not my favourite, we had as much milk to drink as we wanted. There was always a big jug of fresh milk in the ice box, and newly churned butter in glass bowls. Our hen house full of hens provided us with enough eggs for our own use, and with lots left over for Mother to peddle in Renfrew every Saturday morning. We could expect a chicken dinner every Sunday. Mother, long before we would set out for church, would have stuffed at least two fat birds and put them in the Findlay Oval oven. If there weren’t enough vegetables in the sand bin to tuck around the chickens, we ADVERTISING SALES: ADVERTISING SALES CO-ORDINATOR Andrea Harding SALES: Cheryl Johnston, Sharon Sinfield, Kathy Perreault, Liz Gray, Kevin Hoover, Jamie Rae-Gomes Email: emcsales@perfprint.ca Fax: 613-283-9988 THE DEADLINE FOR DISPLAY ADVERTISING IS MONDAY 4:30 PM

made do with bowls of pickled beans or canned tomatoes from the cellar. Although Father never considered it a meal, Mother had what we all called her “everything goes into it” pot of soup simmering just about constantly on the back of the stove. Hulls of vegetables, anything left over from the dinner table, scraps of meat, leftover gravy…whatever she could find, went into the soup pot. Father, most nights, when he wasn’t too tired from dawn to dusk working in the fields, would sit down just before he fell into bed, and with a couple pieces of home made bread sponging up the soup, ate heartily of what he called “a wee bite before turning in.” No, on thinking about it, I worried for nothing. We wouldn’t starve on the farm just because the barrels were empty. Food was all around us, and there was always Briscoes General Store, where we could stop for maple cookies, a couple slices of bologna, and the basics like flour, tea and sugar. All we had to do was ask for it, and tell Mr. Briscoe, “just put it on our bill, please.” • 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.

Maberly area student winner of 2013 Cliff Bennett Nature Bursary Ramsay’s love for the outdoors has motivated her to take a demanding workload of courses in math, biology, and chemistry at St. John’s Catholic High School this year. She knows that this academic focus will help her in attaining her educational goal of becoming a conservation officer. Her summer experience includes working outdoors at a local provincial park. Teachers at her school have commented that she is “passionate about becoming a conservation officer, and even a short conversation with her makes this very evident. She has earned the respect of many teachers at this school and certainly the admiration of her peers.” The Cliff Bennett Nature Bursary Award is given annually by the MVFN to a local graduating

secondary school student going on to post-secondary studies relating to nature or the environment. The bursary fund was established in 2007 by friends and family of local naturalist, MVFN founding member, and retired educator Cliff Bennett on the occasion of his 75th birthday. The bursary is intended to assist local students who have a love and appreciation of the natural world in following this passion towards a career in environmental stewardship and conservation. The annual Cliff Bennett Nature Bursary is administered by the MVFN. Application forms and further details may be found on the MVFN’s website at www. mfvn.ca.

time workers, shift workers with someone at home, business owners or employees who can take the dog to work, people who work from home, and college and university students. One adult must be responsible for the dog, but Puppy Walkers have included individuals, couples, and families with children. Past dog experience is an asset, but not necessary. New litters are expected in the next couple of months. You can start the application process now to take a puppy when it’s convenient to you between July and the fall of this year. Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind was established as a registered charity in 1984. Since that time, Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind has provided professionally trained guide dogs to Canadians who are visually impaired from coast to coast. In 2010, Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind launched an Assistance Dogs Division, which trains assistance dogs for individuals in eastern Ontario with mobility-related disabilities. Puppy Walking applications are assessed on an individual basis. You can obtain an application for this volunteer position by phoning 613692-7777 or email info@ guidedogs.ca.

Interest in baseball in Toronto is encouraging sign Lifestyle – They just passed the halfway pole in the 2013 Major League Baseball (MLB) season. In fact the unofficial midway mark comes Tuesday (July 16) when the 84th All Star game is played at Citi Field in Queen’s New York, home of the New York Mets of the National League (NL). To show you what a rare honour it is to host what is arguably the best all-star game in professional sports (in my opinion it is the best), this year marks only the second time the Mets will host the big game in their history. The team began play in 1962 and two years later their first home park, Shea Stadium, was the scene of the MLB’s mid-summer classic. Shea was demolished in 2009 to allow for additional parking at adjacent Citi Field, Mets’ new home. The all-star game will no doubt be the highlight of this season and perhaps many campaigns to come for Mets’ fans. Their ball club is struggling badly. Their owner lost a mint as a result of the truly prodigious Ponzi scheme crafted by one Bernie Madoff, the biggest fraud in American financial history. Mets are unable to pay the kind of salaries necessary to build a winning team in today’s big money MLB environment. Madoff, for the record, is serving a 150-year sentence for a crime which cost his investors an estimated $18 billion. One of the best lines I heard about Madoff’s equally impressive prison term was, “Yes, but he had a smart lawyer. He got his sentence cut in half!” This column is about baseball. I can also spin it into a travelogue, something many readers of this newspaper obviously enjoy based on my email. In Canada if you want to combine baseball at its highest level and travel, the only place to go is Toronto.

Reflections JEFF MAGUIRE

Last week, in the company of my adult son Craig, I did just that. We journeyed to Canada’s largest city to watch our favorite MLB team, the Detroit Tigers, play the Blue Jays. We travelled by train, a journey which was so fast and so enjoyable that it affirmed my feeling we are totally out to lunch in this country when it comes to mass transit. We should be building railway infrastructure, not ripping it up. Our train from Fallowfield deposited us at historic Union Station. A short taxi ride and we were at our hotel on Peter St. in the heart of Toronto. Peter St., a north-south artery, turns into ‘Blue Jays Way’ as it approaches Rogers Centre, the home of the Toronto baseball club. Standing in front of our hotel we could see a corner of the massive, domed stadium sitting promisingly at the foot of Blue Jays Way. It turned out to be an easy 15-minute stroll. Slow start In a column earlier this year I noted that Blue Jays’ off-season acquisitions had turned them into a contender in the highly competitive American League (AL) East Division. Unfortunately it hasn’t turned out that way. Jays’ starting pitching, the key to MLB success, hasn’t yet lived up to expectations. With their top pitchers struggling, the club’s offensive shortcomings have been exposed. Beyond sluggers like Edwin Encarnación and Jose Bautista,

Toronto batters haven’t been able to produce enough runs to win at the rate necessary for post-season qualification. At this writing they remain last in their division and they have the worst run differential (a very telling statistic) in the AL East. Detroit, on the other hand, won the AL pennant last September. They were swept by a very good San Francisco Giants’ team in the World Series. But with the best starting pitching in the league and offensive stars like Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder in the line-up, Tigers are again a genuine contender. Last week Craig and I saw clear evidence of Detroit’s ability. They lost the opener of the four game series at Rogers Centre 8-3, thanks mainly to a dominating pitching performance by Jays’ knuckle baller R.A. Dickey on Canada Day. We weren’t at that one but saw the next two contests. Tigers won the Tuesday night game 7-6 despite trailing 4-0 after one inning. Cabrera, the first MLB Triple Crown winner (batting average, home runs and runs batted in) in 45 years last season, belted a tape measure three-run homer to key a six-run Tigers’ second inning. Toronto tied it before Bengals scratched out the winning run in the eighth. The next night we watched Detroit win 6-2 behind highly regarded right hander Max Scherzer. He won his 13th game in as many decisions. That’s the best start to a season by a Tigers’ pitcher in the team’s 112-year history. The

OPP marine unit charges man with impaired boating News – The Lanark County Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Marine Patrol Unit continues to assure the community that public safety remains the top priority for OPP officers patrolling local waterways. The Lanark County OPP Marine Patrol Unit had a strong presence out on Mississippi Lake over the Canada Day long weekend and was extremely proactive in their enforcement efforts to ensure the people in Lanark County community is kept safe. On Canada Day at approximately 8:30 p.m. the OPP Marine Unit was on patrol of Mississippi Lake when police observed a boat operating in excess of the speed limit which did not have any

navigational lights on and was causing a large wake in a wake restricted area. The Officer signalled the operator to stop but he failed to do so and sped off to a nearby dock in the Riverside Park area in Carleton Place. The operator of the boat was apprehended and arrested by ground units of OPP Officers working in concert with the Marine Unit. A 28-yearold Drummond/North Elmsley man has been charged with the following offences * one count - Impaired Boating – Contrary to Section 253(a) of the Criminal Code * one count - operate vessel over 80 milligrams – Contrary to Section 253(b) Criminal Code. * one count – operate pow-

er driven vessel at speed over 10km/hr within 30 metres of shore – Contrary to Section 2(7) of the Vessel Operation Restriction Regulations under the Canada Shipping Act. The operator has also had his driver’s licence suspended for a period of 90 days and a quantity of alcohol was also seized. The man was released on a promise to appear and is scheduled to make his first court appearance on Aug. 12 in Perth Provincial Court Criminal Division to answer to the charges. The OPP is serious about public safety and wish to remind everyone that there is a zero tolerance for those who would put “anyone” at risk or in harms way.

offensive hero was light hitting catcher Alex Avila. He launched an opposite field, three run home run in the second inning. The next day Detroit completed their season series with Toronto, romping past the struggling Blue Jays 11-1 to finish 5-2 against Jays. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Toronto. Between games we toured the Hockey Hall of Fame which is very worthwhile. What impressed us most (besides witnessing two Tigers’ victories) was the obvious renewed interest in the Blue Jays in Toronto. We were thrilled to support the ball club which, as Canadian baseball fans, we want to succeed. The Jays are Canada’s only MLB club and they are extremely important to the future of the game in this country. Except when they play Detroit, Craig and I are also Toronto baseball fans. We are hoping for a big second half turnaround although that may be a little ambitious. Jays

need to strengthen their everyday line-up in order to be contenders again. Some people complain about Rogers Centre saying it is too large and outdated. Personally I like the stadium, except for the very steep upper deck. We paid more and sat in the first level which was excellent. With the dome you never have to worry about rainouts and Toronto fans are among the most friendly, polite baseball supporters you’re likely to meet. Because Detroit is so close to Toronto thousands of Tigers’ fans journeyed to Rogers Centre for the series. Good seats are hard to come by in baseball mad Detroit. Despite wearing Tigers’ caps and shirts we were welcomed to the ball park. Sure, there was some good natured ribbing but that goes with the experience for visiting fans. Jays’ supporters are knowledgeable and most important they are far more plentiful this year than in any recent seasons. There were over

27,000 at the Tuesday game and nearly 30,000 the next night. Solid week night turnouts. For anyone who enjoys the game of baseball I highly recommend a visit to Rogers Centre. Toronto is a safe city, transportation links from eastern Ontario are good, accommodations near the ball park are plentiful and they’re also reasonable by big city standards. Obviously we hope Toronto is even more competitive in the second half. But there is now clearly light at the end of the tunnel for Jays’ fans. The team’s last playoff appearance was in 1993, the year Blue Jays won the second of back-to-back World Series. My lifelong love for the Detroit Tigers aside I sincerely hope there’s another MLB championship in the offing for Toronto soon!

Reminiscing about music and what makes Canada a great country Lifestyle – Having been retired a year now, the long weekends aren’t the same lure to the “getting away” necessity as they were when being a previous ‘weekday warrior’. After 30 years of running the roads trying to help people around the county, to all of a sudden stop has been quite an adjustment. Over the years, family, kids and family activities, work that included the intensity of sometimes coordinating many vulnerable people’s lives, giving back to community (because that’s what I was taught to do), sometimes via regional and provincial organizations; volunteer work, old timer hockey, darts and all the resulting scheduling to make it all work, definitely left its mark. After a while, one develops one’s life into a lifestyle that, thankfully, had what I needed to survive... a wonderfully supportive family who knew I always regrouped best with some live music, wherever located. Where many retirees are now moving out of the big cities, “into the country” or smaller communities, I realized I was already way ahead of the game. Without having to change locales, etc., I’m already living in a quiet, friendly, cultural oasis offering all I need to feel good. Perth provides my cultural variety in a friendly community with very formidable roots. ‘Make Haste Slowly’, the town’s motto, acknowledges the principles I feel comfortable with. I’m already in my own utopia. Compared to many cultures of people (Asian, East and West European, African, British Colonies, South America), Canada is but a baby. Our brief 146 years as a nation is a result of the assimilation of so many ethnic groups so naturally we are still affected by the chronicles that have evolved historically from previous homelands like Ireland and Scotland, especially in this area, including religious beliefs. I still hear people talk of the “Catholic side of town”. We’re just developing our own history. I’m so proud to be a Canadian and find it amazing our great country can assimilate with positive results, while other countries struggle with this in non-peaceful ways. Oh, we’re far from perfect (Aboriginal neglect, ecological abuses) but Canada is still the place to be and I’m grateful. Over the past Canada Day

weekend I helped my son provide sound for two provincial park productions. As a result I was reunited with a veteran musician friend and his two allies who continues to eek out a living utilizing his musical/theatrical skills in a variety of local opportunities so important to helping maintain and pass on our brief history through story and song to all ages. I realized how we, too often, get caught in the trendy tunes/ players of the day and sometimes we have to be reminded of how we got to where we are, the cultural history of the times which have prevailed. I was, through authentic music, reminded of how native and multicultural groups helped etch our limited history. From our farming, logging and mining camp beginnings, ethnic diversity was crammed together in them, often originated by necessity of the basics of a warm fire in a bunkhouse and working together for that family supporting pay check. These necessities all melded and left their mark in helping develop our cultural mosaic. Thanks to the good works and coordination of Beth Peterkin, each provincial park show brought a mixed bag of more than 100 primarily camper attendees. Some were seniors but more often it was hopeful young parents providing their offspring, from babes in arms to teens, the rare opportunity to hear about Canadian history via these government supported presentations. Where else are they going to be reminded of the successes and trials and tribulations of our predecessors? Were they aware of the historic mines and lumber camps and their resulting labour unrests, of Great Lakes fishing and other nautical histories so important to this country’s growth? Were they aware of the musical instrument lineage that prevailed through camps and ships? I was reminded this weekend of all the musicians who still share their musical gifts wher-

ever they can and as a result promote principles our “fore folk” (because there was a lot more than just “forefathers”) worked hard to establish and maintain. So, picture this…in the bush, perched on the shore with the background of a narrow, tree-surrounded lake being paddled on by the occasional neon-coloured canoe, we set up sound equipment at a small amphitheatre, all the while being serenaded by one of the musicians practicing his hammered dulcimer. Lovely music in a serene location at the amphitheatre of Murphy’s Point Provincial Park; sure beats a dank, dark arena somewhere. Freshwater Trade, a wonderfully multi-talented musical trio (Glen Caradus, Michael Ketemer, Ken Ramsden) played a mixture of historical instruments including sweet harmonic vocals, harmonica, guitars (one over a century old), banjo, penny whistle, “lumberjack piano” (hammered dulcimer), fiddle, some thigh slaps…all with captivating historical stories in period costumes. Other than the “intrusion” of our electronic enhancements, the authenticity and locale was complete. God bless these and all players who make their living offering their entertainment skills wherever they can. Our cultural history must be preserved and shared. It takes government funding to offer these historical type repertoires which hopefully educates our young future ancestors via community library presentations, schools, festivals, fairs or other venues such as this. And what a fun way to learn, by listening to stories of our history, doing action songs, singing along with a chorus or two. Another important part of our community is also supported by these musicians in offering entertainment to our elderly. When you’re 80+, where do you hear the music of your day? Via these historical musical troubadours and many other musicians, our seniors are reminded of their

roots. Familiarity with songs of their era brings satisfaction and hopefully sweet memories. In varying configurations with themselves and other artists these musicians play many nursing and retirement homes to appreciative audiences. A friend I recently spoke to plays at the various seniors homes and respectfully noted most could sing along with the songs but many couldn’t remember their name, which speaks heartily of the amazing impact music has in us all. Maybe it’s the reminder of our history, our roots and the struggles those before us endured to give us what’s envious to the rest

of the world that reminds me of what our Canada represents. Oh hell, it’s far from perfect but you know, it sure beats second place. And it’s people with principles before us that enabled us our enviable rights, freedoms and space. I question whether those altruistic principles direct the workings of our current governments. I’m certainly proud to be a Canadian. Through my old friend Ken Ramsden (of Rev Ken and the Lost Followers fame), I’ve been made aware of a unique historical theatrical experience here in the valley. Check out ‘There’s Hippies Up the Line!’ presented by Stone Fence Theatre, now in

Summer job money – how to make the most of it Manage Your Money

You’re the parent of a youngster with a first-time summer job–and that means he or she will be enjoying a brand new income stream. But what streams in can quickly stream out without good money management skills. Here are a few tips to help make the most of your youngster’s summer job money. An early wake-up call is best How your youngster will handle money as an adult depends on the habits he or she has learned from you growing up. Start early by motivating your youngster to become a regular saver and investor by setting a good example to follow. Immediate enjoyment isn’t best It’s tough to resist pervasive advertising and the ‘gotta have it’ emotion– but explain to your youngster that effective money management starts with always controlling expenses so they don’t exceed income. Help them create a realistic budget with measurable and attainable goals. Get right with the CRA If your youngster’s job results in a T4 (Statement of Remuneration Paid that is issued by an employer) he or she should file an income tax return because even if their income is below taxable levels, they will start accumulating

RRSP room that can be carried forward indefinitely. If your child is 19, he or she should also apply for the GST/HST credit on each tax return and will probably be eligible for quarterly GST/HST credit cheques. Be sure your youngster takes full advantage of the tax relief available to students1: • Scholarships and bursaries are not taxable when the student is entitled to claim the Education Tax Credit. • Interest paid on a student loan is eligible for a tax credit when the loan is part of a federal or provincial student loan program. • Moving expenses are also a tax deduction if the student moves more than 40 kilometres to be closer to school or to take a summer job. • Available tax credits can include the Canada Employment Credit, tuition fees for approved study course, an Education amount for each month of enrolment, a textbook credit, and a Public Transit Pass Credit. Obey the 10% rule Explain that he or she will enjoy a much richer tomorrow by always saving 10% of their

take-home pay. By doing so, he or she takes full advantage of the miracle of compound interest. Use this dramatic example: Invest $1 a day for 40 years at a 5% interest rate and they’ll have about $44,000!2 Now is the time to put your youngster on the path to a comfortable financial future. Sometimes an external informed opinion can help – so give your professional advisor a call.

The Algonquin land claim – parks and protected areas By ROBERT POTTS

News – The Algonquins of Ontario (AOO) have long held a way of life deeply rooted in conservation and ecological integrity. Environmental stewardship of land and resources has been an integral practice of the Algonquins since time immemorial. With the release of the Preliminary Draft Agreement-in-Principle (AIP) in December 2012, the AOO once again reaffirmed their desire to work with their partners and neighbours to ensure that ecological integrity is the first priority in the management of protected areas, specifically provincial parks and conservation reserves in the settlement area. The preliminary draft AIP proposes a number of elements to be reflected in a Final Agreement, some of which are highlighted below. Participation in protected area management planning The final agreement will provide that Ontario will appoint at least one person nominated by the AOO to the Ontario Parks board of directors. This representation will ensure that the voice of the AOO is heard, and that lessons and practices learned from years of sound management and living in harmony with the land and resources are shared. Should other boards be established related to protected areas in the settlement area, the AOO will also have representation. The preliminary draft AIP also proposes that the final agreement will set out three levels of Algonquin engagement in protected area management planning: Level 1: The AOO will review and comment on protected area management

• Plans and management statements prepared by Ontario. Level 2: The AOO, as members on the protected area planning teams, will participate in the development and amendment of management plans and management statements. Level 3: In Algonquin Provincial Park and 15 other identified provincial parks, the AOO and the protected area manager will work through an Algonquin planning committee to jointly develop, amend and examine management plans, management statements, secondary plans, natural heritage education programs and any other strategic plans for protected areas. Access to protected areas The final agreement will also deal with access roads, trails, use of motorized vehicles and other access issues in protected areas through protected area management planning processes that consider the maintenance of ecological integrity as well as the Algonquin interest in access to protected areas for harvesting. The AOO will work with Ontario Parks and the Algonquin Forestry Authority to develop forest management plans that deal with the construction and decommissioning of forestry roads and water crossings in Algonquin Provincial Park.

and the Algonquin way of life, while celebrating Algonquin culture. Fundamental to this Chapter of the Preliminary Draft AIP is the continued sharing of long-standing and effective conservation and management practices by the AOO with their partners. The AOO are committed to ensuring the vitality and future

prosperity of all provincial parks and conservation reserves within the settlement area, for the continued use of the AOO and our neighbours. This column is the third 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 jour-

ney. The next column will focus on the existing harvest management practices of the Algonquins of Ontario. For more information visit www. tanakiwin.com. Robert Potts is the Principal Negotiator and Senior Legal Counsel for the Algonquins of Ontario.

Safe boating council and OFAH team up to keep Ontario anglers safe on water EMC News – July 6 to 14 marks National Fishing Week in Canada. The Canadian Safe Boating Council (CSBC) and the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH) want to remind anglers that wearing your lifejacket is even more important than wearing your ‘lucky fishing hat’. But they do share one trait. They both have to be worn to be effective! Many of those who don’t wear their lifejackets or personal flotation devices (PFD) believe that, since they are good swimmers, having them onboard and within easy reach is good enough. But a lifejacket stored under a seat or up in the bow will be of no help should the unexpected happen, like falling overboard while trying to net the catch. “More than half the recreational boats sold in Canada are used for fishing,” says Jean Murray, chair of the Canadian Safe Boating Council. “And during National Fishing Week, the Canadian Safe Boating Council would like to urge all anglers not only to have

their lifejacket onboard their boat, but cottage, or at that favourite fishing spot At this important time of year, the This initiative is made possible to wear it.

Perth native takes on leading role at Shakespeare Festival Lifestyle – The role of Hamlet is like the Ironman. The role tests an actor like the race tests an athlete, and to take on either task, let alone to perform well, is a tremendous achievement. Over the last several months, actor Eric Craig has been preparing—training, if you will—to play the Prince of Denmark in the St. Lawrence Shakespeare Festival’s first-ever production of Hamlet. “It’s very humbling,� says Craig. “It’s an amazing opportunity, for sure.� Born and raised in Perth, Craig graduated from the music theatre program at the University of Windsor a decade ago and has spent most of his career since in Toronto, so when he takes the stage in Prescott this summer, it will feel a bit like a homecoming. “It’s neat to come home and do something like Hamlet,� he says. In his younger years, the former St. John Catholic High School student was a fixture in local community theatre. On stages in and around Perth is where Craig began learning the craft which would eventually provide him both a living and great deal of personal satisfaction. “Perth is pretty good for theatre,� he says. “There’s a lot going on for young people.� Since leaving Windsor and setting up shop in Toronto, Craig has performed in a slew of theatre productions, both large and small—including Beauty and the Beast, Waiting for Godot and Little

Shop of Horrors. And when he’s not on stage, he’s in front of the camera, performing in television shows such as Flashpoint, or in commercials for, among others, Best Buy, Rickard’s and Mazda. Though his 30-second spot in a recent Best Buy commercial probably earned him more money than he will make all summer in Prescott, directing some last-second shoppers to the perfect Christmas present in aisle three will not compare to the thrill of tackling the theatre’s most daunting – and rewarding – role. “It’s so iconic,� he says. “The ideas you get to speak on stage are so beautifully profound.� Hamlet’s reputation as first among theatrical roles is well-deserved, for it takes an actor of considerable substance and sensibility to do justice to the complexity and eloquence of the words the character speaks. More than that, the part is huge. The words may be beautiful and iconic, but there are a plenty of them, too. “You get to be part of the telling of so much of the story,� says Craig. It seems as if every line Hamlet speaks is thick with meaning, not only in the weight imparted to the words by Shakespeare himself but also in the precedent set by the many illustrious actors who have played the role before – from Laurence Olivier to John GielSubmitted photo gud to Kenneth Brannagh. “It’s very profound material,� says Actor Eric Craig practices his swordsmanship while preparing for the Craig. “You discover more and more demanding title role in the St. Lawrence Shakespeare Festival’s pro- about it the more time you spend with it.� duction of Hamlet.

And since Craig has had to spend so much time with Hamlet, his role in the other play the Shakespeare Festival is staging this summer will be quite small. Craig will play â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Redâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; George MacDonnell in Maid for a Musket, an original play based loosely on Shakespeareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Loveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Labours Lost. Diving right in Craig certainly hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been eased into his first experience with the St. Lawrence Shakespeare Festival, tasked with portraying both Hamlet and one of Prescottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most prominent historical figures, but he is happy to be spending his summer in the Fort Town. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have heard so many good things about the Shakespeare Festival,â&#x20AC;? he says, noting that the company has earned an admirable reputation within the close-knit Canadian acting community. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just the quality of the productions or the calibre of people working on the plays that has given the festival its good name; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also the people who come to see the shows. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s absolutely remarkable how supportive the community is,â&#x20AC;? says Craig. Both Hamlet and Maid for a Musket will no doubt draw large crowds to the Shakespeare Festival once again this summer and tickets are already selling briskly. Hamlet opens on Wednesday, July 17 and Maid for a Musket opens on Saturday, July 13. Both have previews the night before. Information on tickets can be found at the festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website â&#x20AC;&#x201C; stlawrenceshakepeare.ca.

News – Canadian transplant patients have new hope as the Harper government announced recently, the launch of a new national transplantation research program that will develop new knowledge and health care practices that address barriers to tissue and organ donation and will improve health outcomes for transplant recipients in Canada. The Honourable Leona Aglukkaq, Minister of Health made the announcement at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute. The minister was joined by Dr. Lori West, director of the new Canadian National Transplant Research Program (CNTRP), and Hélène Campbell, a double lung transplant recipient and co-founder of the Give 2 Live Campaign. “Our government recognized the need for a national program to help Canadians who have received or who are waiting for tissue and organ transplants,” said Minister Aglukkaq. “That is why we committed to fund this research program and we are delivering on this commitment to Canadians. This program will provide important information to guide the development of policies and programs that increase tissue and organ donation in Canada and enhance the survival and quality of life of Canadians who receive transplants.” The CNTRP brings together over 105 investigators across nine provinces. The program will transform the field of transplantation by addressing the barriers to donation therefore increasing the number of available organs, improving the quality and viability of donated organs and grafts, and enhancing long-term survival and quality of life of transplant patients. The CNTRP is the first program in the world to unite and integrate the solid organ transplant, bone marrow transplant and the donation and critical care research communities together in a groundbreaking national research endeavour. “The transplant and donation communities across Canada have come together to create a truly unique collective research program that will foster innovation, creativity and collaboration in new ways that will increase our ultimate effectiveness,” said Dr. Lori West, director of the CNTRP and Professor of Pediatrics, Surgery and Immunology at the University of Alberta. “This integration will improve donation and transplant programs across the country and will impact the lives of transplant patients and those awaiting transplant.” “Canadian transplant centres and organizations are working together, for patients like me,” said Hélène Campbell, double-lung transplant recipient and organ donation advocate. “The results of this program will be groundbreaking for all patients.” Funding for this program is being provided through the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) in partnership with Canadian Blood Services, Canadian Liver Foundation, Cystic Fibrosis Canada, Fonds de recherche du Québec – Santé, Genome British Columbia, and the Kidney Foundation of Canada. The Harper government remains focused on four priorities, as outlined by the Prime Minister, that Canadians care most about: their families, the safety of our streets and communities, their pride in being a citizen of this country, and of course, their personal financial security.

THANK YOU From Family of Shannon Learmonth (McPhail) We would like to take this opportunity to extend a huge thank you to all who have helped to carry us along this most difficult journey we have been on. Over the past 12 years, as our daughter Shannon fought her courageous battle, we have been touched by the generosity of so many. There simply are no words …. It would be hard to recall all who have supported us, but it most certainly includes our families, friends, co-workers, fellow farmers, members of various organizations to which we belong, business associates, neighbours, doctors, nurses, specialized care providers, and complete strangers. During the last 4 months, since Shannon was hospitalized, your acts of kindness have left us in tears … often. Visits, phone calls, texts, emails, flowers, meals, hugs, and help here on the farm, have allowed us to manage our family, our business, and our need to be by Shannon’s side. Your donations to the Learmonth Family Trust Account have allowed Shannon’s family to manage their financial matters throughout these past few months. Donations to the Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada will provide research dollars which we hope can improve the lives of others. Please know that we could not have survived this without you, and although the sadness is still very intense, we are thankful that we have 36 years of amazing memories. Shannon’s beauty and zest for life will be with us forever, in our hearts, and in the warm embrace of her husband Adam and her young daughter Penelope. “From the bottom of our heavy hearts, Love Harold and Shelley McPhail and family

Lovingly remembered by Mervyn & Gertie Martin and Family LAMING, Dwayne- In loving memory of my dear son who was taken tragically July 4th, 2010.

WOOLSEY, William “Lance” – December 22, 1948 - July 10, 2012 “We loved with a love that was more than Love”. What started with friendship ended in true love. My Dearest Lance, They say that life will never be the same, that is so true. Each and every day, I think of you in a way that is closest to my heart. You walk beside me with each and every step I take making sure that life will go on for me. It has been so hard to imagine life without you, as your great strength and determination throughout our 16 years was amazing. You fought against all odds with your health, but never once complained. Your warmth, unconditional love, kindness, gentleness and amazing work ethic were your most genuine qualities. You loved your children more than anything but you also loved my children equally. This shows the immense love you held in your heart. Alaina and Austin turned 2 in June, and Nola Marie was born Jan. 18, 2013. Logan and Ella send their love to their Grandpa Perth. Each and every one of us miss you more and more each day. I always said to you, “Lance, tell me you love me: and you would say, “I love me”, “not you, me”, and then you would say “I love you my Patsy”. I listen to your song every day, “A Woman Like You” by Johnny Reid, and the other day, I heard this song “If I could have anything, anything, just to kiss your lips, one more time,” and to tell you how much I really adore and love you. “To the World you may be one Person, But to One Person you are the World”. Eternally loved by your wife, Patricia Hendry-Woolsey Lovingly remembered by your children Chris (Jessica), James (Shelley), Justin (Stefanie), Amanda (Bruce), Kalem (Celine). Your grandchildren, Logan, Ella, Alaina, Austin and Nola send their love and kisses. Remembered by your brother, Reg Woolsey

Dad, You have been gone a year now and we miss you so much. I think of you every day and you will always be in my heart. Alaina sees your picture on the wall and says, Grandpa Lance! I tell her about you all the time. I wish you were here to watch her grow up, but I know you are watching from above. Life is not the same without you. Love you forever and ever your “Bear, Bruce and Alaina bees”.

BARBER, Dorothy Kathleen – In loving memory of a dear wife, who passed away July 12, 2003 I once had something special, That money couldn’t buy, I had a very special wife, Who had to say good-bye. They say there is a reason, They say that time will heal, But neither time nor reason, Will change the way I feel. For no one knows the heartache That lies behind my smiles, No one knows how many times I have broken down and cried. When I feel so lonely, And tears will fill my eyes, I think of you at peace, And know I shouldn’t cry. So I hide my heartache, As you would want me to, And when I cry my tears alone, Nobody hears but you. Today and tomorrow my whole life through, I will always love and cherish you. Alf

Ride for Rescue Cats returns next Saturday in Almonte By TARA GESNER tgesner@perfprint.ca

Events – Two wheels, four paws and a whole lot of fun. The Ride for Rescue Cats, now in its fourth year, takes place next Saturday, July 20, with kickstands up at 10 a.m. All proceeds benefit Country Cat Sanctuary in Oxford Station for the ongoing care of its rescued felines. “Each year the demand grows,” said organizer Frances Bryerton. “Help is desperately needed.” Country Cat Sanctuary is home to tortured and abandoned cats and kittens. “Some are strays and some are abandoned by the very people they loved and trusted to care for them,” said Bryerton. The registered charity (No. 82278 8279 RR0001), which is non-funded, is a no-cage and no-kill rescue, and the only exception is when an animal is in pain or beyond effective help. Rain or shine, Ride for Rescue Cats gets underway at Levi Home Hardware Building Centre, located at 476 Ottawa St. in Almonte. “Registration runs from 8:30 to 9:45 a.m.,” said Bryerton. “Riders pay $20 and passengers pay $10, or you can ride free with $50 in pledges.” Start collecting now, she added. Every dollar counts and is needed. The Ride for Rescue Cats is open to all bikes, riders and clubs – and even people in cars are welcome to partake. The two participants who collect the most money in pledges each receive a stunning, handcarved award. Each piece has a name (Jack or Jill). Carver Daniel Kuryliak created them. He is a former motorcycle rider and

owner of a rescue cat. “Winners keep their award until next year’s ride,” said Bryerton, “and their names are engraved on the 2013 spot.” The Ride for Rescue Cats is in memory of Little Jack – so he will not be forgotten. The call to rescue the eight-week-old kitten came too late, and unfortunately he never got an opportunity to be loved by a family. Bryerton is hoping for sunny skies and a great day of safe riding. Last year’s route covered approximately 160 kilometres – from Almonte to Arnprior, to Cheneaux, Haley Station, Renfrew, White Lake, Pakenham, Blakeney and back to Almonte. Back at Levi’s (typically around 1 p.m.), participants can enjoy a light lunch. Moreover, plenty of prizes will be handed out – thanks to the outstanding generosity of area merchants. “We have a VIP, private tour and taste for six people at a well-known winery in Prince Edward County,” said Bryerton. “I am thrilled beyond words. I can only imagine the winner of this prize being able to invite five friends to join them on such a exceptional outing.” In the last three years, $6,500 has been raised by way of the ride: $1,200 in year one; $3,200 in year two; and $1,200 in year three. Other ways to help Individuals unable to participate in the Ride for Rescue Cats can help in other ways: adopting one of the many cats waiting for a second chance in life, sponsoring a feline in need, or merely making a donation. Baker was born in January 2008 and is ready for adoption. He was discovered in a ditch in a rural area, but was obviously someone’s cat. Perhaps, he was

waiting for his owner to return. On day three he was spotted in the same location – wet and cold. He was taken in by a foster. Although Baker gets along with other cats and kittens, he

prefers to be by himself. Sachs is four-years-old. He was found abandoned in a locked cat carrier in the countryside. His name was clearly marked on the carrier. Declawed, he had no

way to defend himself. Country Cat Sanctuary was lucky to find him. Sachs is sweet, attentive and affectionate, not to mention handsome. At the moment, he is not so fond of having his belly rubbed. Perhaps, he suffered a bad experience, which is understandable given the circumstances in which he was found. Jersey just turned threeyears-old. He is a handsome tuxedo cat. When he was rescued his eyelid was turned inside out and his eyelashes were scraping his eyeball. Following corrective surgery, Jersey’s eye is now healed. He is waiting to be adopted. To sponsor a cat for 30 days the cost is $10. To help a feline for six months the cost is $50. An annual sponsorship is $100. There are a few ways to donate: • Visit Canada Helps. org and specify Country Cat

Sanctuary (include charity number). • On your United Way donation form, check the box for directed donations and specify Country Cat Sanctuary (include charity number). • Send a cheque or postal money order, payable to Country Cat Sanctuary, to RR2, Oxford Station, ON K0G 1T0. “If it wasn’t for Country Cat Sanctuary, these cats would die a horrible death,” said Bryerton. “We need people’s support! There is no shortage of felines in need.” To obtain a pledge sheet or additional information about the 2013 ride, contact Bryerton at 613-256-3726. For news about Country Cat Rescue, visit www. countrycatrescue.com. “Come out and support this fundraising event,” said Bryerton. “This sanctuary is desperately needed.”

The Ride for Rescue Cats is in memory of Little Jack – so he will not be forgotten.

meeting, and it was not noted in Municipal Matters, the town’s advertisement in the local newspaper. “I am sure there are a lot of people in town who would like some input in this, since it affects everybody in Carleton Place,” continued Flynn. “The meeting on June 4 was for the education of council,” said Mayor Wendy LeBlanc. “We received education from people on both sides of the argument.” “I think that’s pretty unfair,” responded Flynn. “This is a very, very public matter, a very controversial issue.” His approach to the matter has always been for education – being careful not to be a fanatic, he said. Flynn wants people to educate themselves. “I can’t imagine anybody with any intelligence looking at the information available and not seeing a red flag,” he said. “There are grounds to suspect! If you are not 100 per cent sure this is not a detrimental effect to the public, I can’t see how you could make a decision to leave it (fluoride) in.” Coun. Louis Antonakos supported Flynn’s concern, wanting the item carried forward for additional discussion. He noted earlier in the day a request was made to have it brought forward to the committee’s September meeting – only three months away. “This has been on the agenda for two years,” said Antonakos. “No-

Connected to your community

body has asked for it to be brought forward. Why, therefore, are we being so hasty, only three weeks of hearing the pro and against fluoride presentations in the auditorium?” Speakers on both sides came up with plenty of information and the councillor was proud. “It was an excellent evening for me,” he said, “and I don’t know why we wouldn’t continue this discussion.” Earlier in the day the local medical officer of health responded by email to a resident (Matt Ingram) in the community about his concerns regarding fluoridation. “I haven’t read it yet, but right now there is a discussion going on, on this issue,” said Antonakos. “Why would we cut that off? For two years no one said a word on this issue – except me – to bring it forward.” He questioned the harm in continuing the debate, when the staff motion would only mean status quo. “If I’m not mistaken, the item was brought forward and the idea was that councillor Flynn was going to find some people on the side of removing fluoride, and Dr. Paula Stewart had already been set up by the staff to speak,” said LeBlanc. “We were waiting for councillor Flynn.” “The only issue I have – I feel we should allow the public to have input,” commented Flynn. “This is a decision of council,” reminded LeBlanc, “and we were going to have an education session so council could make the decision.” “We did have the education ses-

sion, and we had members of the public who spoke on both sides of the issue,” she continued. “They spoke eloquently and passionately about it. We’ve received emails about it. I don’t think we are going to gain anything further, to help us make a decision, by gaining information from the public.” Compelling evidence for the continued use of fluoride was heard from the experts in the field of health, dental health and drinking water, added the mayor. “Personally, I feel quite comfortable in making my decision to-

night,” LeBlanc said. “I think both sides have had plenty of opportunity to state their case, and I think it’s time we made our decision.” Flynn asked the mayor if she was 100 per cent sure fluoride was not detrimental to people’s health. “I am 100 per cent comfortable with listening to our experts in health and dental health, in our county and other countries,” replied LeBlanc. Deputy mayor Ed Sonnenburg indicated he would vote against the motion mostly out of stubbornness. “Because the motion should be

whether or not we are going to plebiscite,” he explained. “That is what the education session was for. And, as stated in the recommendation, status quo will continue, regardless of the vote.” “We can let it go for a couple of months,” continued Sonnenburg, “and if our minds haven’t changed by the fall, we can then vote regarding a plebiscite.” “My question doesn’t need a response, but how many minds were changed on June 4?” asked LeBlanc. “Why wasn’t the questioned asked before the motion was made, if you were interested in an answer?” asked Antonakos. “I’m not interested, it was a rhetorical question,” replied the mayor. “I actually know the answer, councillor Antonakos.” “I suggest that you do not know where my mind is on that issue,” he said, “and I resent that comment.” Coun. Gary Strike apologized for being unable to attend the education session, however, he asked a number of people he knew to attend. “A lot of them did, and most of them commented on leaving it (fluoride) alone,” he said. He received an email from one resident who had his mind changed. “Personally, I go along with the professionals, the doctors, the dentists,” said Strike. “I am very comfortable with the due diligence this council and myself have undertaken on the issue of fluoridation,” said Coun. Doug Black. “My position is that I will support the staff recommendation.”

To the anti-fluoride lobbyists he suggested the town could review the issue in three to five years, “as further scientific and health benefit documentation is more solidified and qualified.” Giving the residents in council chambers a chance to speak, Mark Smith said fluoride “scares the pants off me,” and he is unable to filter it out of his water because of cost. Too, he is concerned about pollution – the amount of fluoride being sent down the Mississippi River to Almonte, Ottawa, Montreal and Quebec City. “Mayor LeBlanc said she respects the opinions of the experts in the medical field, in Canada and around the world,” said Matt Ingram. “There are many experts in Canada and around the world opposed to fluoride, in addition to ones who support it, and there are no clinical trials that prove hydrofluorosilicic acid in our water is safe or effective.” Jim Collins noted a fluoride blog on Carletonplace.com has increased with comments for and against. “It’s something people are starting to take interest in and make comments,” he said. LeBlanc moved the staff recommendation, which was seconded by Coun. Gary Strike. “I’d like a recorded vote,” said the mayor. “Given the chance, I am a firm believer the population will make the right decision,” said Sonnenburg. Black, LeBlanc, Coun. Rob Probert and Strike voted in favour of the motion and Antonakos, Flynn and Sonnenburg voted against it. Probert chaired the meeting.

The Livinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Easy in Carleton Place Last Sunday morning on CBC Radio One, listeners were asked to email in their favourite summer season song titles, and within minutes the host of the show had more than she could handle. The songs were wide-ranging, from Gershwinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Summertime in Porgy and Bess to Gord Lightfootâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Black Day in July to Allan Shermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Camp Granada. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m certain I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only one who hummed, whistled or sang a SummSumm-Summertime song for the next few days. For those of us who chose to live here for the great quality of life that our town offers, every season shines. But summer has that wonderfully laid-back feeling and we here in Carleton Place sure know how to make the most of it. Could it be the river ďŹ&#x201A;owing through the middle of town that creates that relaxed atmosphere? With walking trails on both shores, the Canoe Club paddlers out on the water day and evening, Riverside Parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greenspaces and picnic tables, beaches, splash pad, boat launch, ďŹ shing, nature watching, and fabulous photo opportunities, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re luck y the river has so much to offer to all ages. And if the river isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough to keep the kids from saying theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re bored , thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the Farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Market Saturday mornings, and at the same location, Cruise Night every Wednesday evening and Music at the Market on selected Tuesdays and Thursdays in July and August.

Mississippi Mills town council approves closure of Stephen St. beside ADHS By KELLY KENT kkent@perfprint.ca

News – Students at Almonte District High School (ADHS) will have a safer space to call their own with the approval of a project being headed by the school’s board and the Town of Mississippi Mills. At the council meeting on June 25 a 10-1 vote was passed to approve the proposed closure of Stephen St. beside ADHS. This will give the students safer access to their grounds across the current street while making the green space feel more a part of the school. This initiative was started back in 2007, according to Geoff Baskwill, ADHS’ school council chair and concerned parent, when the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) started to discuss moving Grade 7 and 8 students to the high school. “We agreed to move the

students when there was sufficient space for the students both inside the school and outside for them to play,” said Baskwill. ADHS currently has limited space for the students to use outside and the space that is designated for them – the track and a small field – is across a street, says Baskwill. “Stephen St. runs right through the school’s grounds,” he said. “It can be very unsafe for children to be running back and forth across it.” He also said that while students in Grades 9-12 may choose to go into town for their breaks, Grade 7 and 8 children should have somewhere to play sports or run around during their recesses. Baskwill and other concerned parents and school council members brought the issue up with the town council and its planning committee back in 2011

with a 20-page conditional report, outlining the proposed closure of Stephen St. “The council had some valid questions and concerns,” said Baskwill. He said some council members

were concerned about emergency access for the school, snow removal and bus routes. The UCDSB has worked with the town to create a plan that meets all of the concerns the councilors had until they passed a motion to

support the closure of the eastern part of Stephen St. between Martin St. North and Mitcheson St. on June 25. Baskwill said that this project should be completed within the next one or two years.

The green space beside the school will also receive an upgrade: a full-size football field will be put in, with a new track running around its perimeter. Construction on the football field has already begun.

Carleton Place BIA to release magazine this fall promoting downtown businesses akulp@perfprint.ca

Business â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Carleton Place BIA (Business Improvement Association) wants more shoppers to join them downtown. The organization recently announced its plans to publish a new magazine, aimed at encouraging customers to shop local and within the BIA district. That district includes businesses from High St. to Coleman St. To be called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The DownTOWNERâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, the publication is a joint effort between the BIA and Canadian Gazette, who will be distributing the magazine, which is expected to be released in early October. According to BIA manager Cathie McOrmond, the concept for the magazine came when she attended to the national BIA conference in April. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m actually really excited about this. The shop local concept is nothing new but lots of great ideas came out of

that (conference) that I brought back to the BIA board and we had serious conversations about how we can support a buy local campaign,â&#x20AC;? she said, noting she recently received approval from the board at their June meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to make sure that we reach the heart of the community so that everyone knows what we do have.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;...Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s phenomenal when you go down throughout the downtown district what we have to offer here,â&#x20AC;? McOrmond added. A sampling includes: financial institutions; secondhand or consignment stores; estate and funeral planning; purchase real estate; wedding and formal wear; interior and exterior property design; book stores; flower shop; post office; federal and provincial government services; gas stations; information technology opportunities; pharmacy and health care options; as well as fitness and healthy eating programs and a host of different eateries and other retail outlets to explore. The publication is expected to be 16

pages, containing advertising sold by the Canadian Gazette, supplemented with editorial provided by the BIA. The content will focus on what the downtown merchants contribute to Carleton Place and the area and why the community should embrace those efforts. A total of 10,000 copies will be printed, with 5,000 being distributed to each home in the area and another 5,000 to be circulated by the BIA. McOrmond said she hopes the magazine will have a year shelf life and be something â&#x20AC;&#x153;that speaks to what the downtown has to offer and what the small business community does for our entire community.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;As taxpayers and people who have children in schools, attend churches, our downtown business community is always providing gifts and support to help those groups and without question, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing it,â&#x20AC;? she continued. Those small business are also more often willing to hire local students and residents as employees,

McOrmond said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our businesses provide services you cannot expect to find in larger stores,â&#x20AC;? she commented. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more personal and you will get someone to answer the phone.â&#x20AC;? Residents (and shoppers) need to take ownership in their downtown community, McOrmond stated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you spend dollars here, they are coming back here,â&#x20AC;? she stressed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If each person in our community spent $50 a month in our downtown, we would be millions richer. If you spend that money out of the community at a big box store or corporation, a very, very small percentage of that money comes back to our community.â&#x20AC;? She hopes the publication will entice those residents who live in Carleton Place but commute outside of it, to find out more about their town. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seventy-five per cent of our working population works outside of the community. Those commuters pay taxes and live here, but they leave in the morning and get back at night so they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really

get out,â&#x20AC;? McOrmond said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like those people to take the opportunity on a Saturday morning or when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s convenient for them, and find something that speaks to them.â&#x20AC;? Back in January at the BIA annual general meeting, McOrmond said she spoke about how â&#x20AC;&#x153;this year was going to be year to engage our own community.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to take this (magazine) and run with it and do the very best we can,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;...We are going to make people aware.â&#x20AC;? Plans are in the works for a possible second publication, focusing on health and wellness in the BIA district. For more information on â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The DownTOWNER,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; contact McOrmond at the BIA office (located in the town hall at 175 Bridge St.), cmcormond@carletonplace.ca or 613-257-8049.

Council vote permits local developer to move forward with phase one of development tgesner@perfprint.ca

News – No it wasn’t Canada Day, but the June 25 council meeting in Carleton Place did offer fireworks and there was a celebration – by Bill Katsoulis, owner of the local Thruway Restaurant. After months of back and forth with the municipality relating to his application for development, a 4-3 vote by council has cleared the way for phase one of his planned 55,000 square foot project to move forward. “Your worship, council, thank you,” said Katsoulis. The carried motion, which was forwarded by Coun. Louis Antonakos and seconded by Coun. Jerry Flynn eliminated a condition requiring the Thruway Restaurant to extend (at this point in time) an existing natural drainage course located on the proposed development’s site. The results of the recorded vote were as follows: Deputy mayor Ed Sonnenburg and Antonakos, Flynn and Coun. Gary Strike voted in favour of the motion, while mayor Wendy LeBlanc and councillors Doug Black and Rob Probert voted against it. Lengthy discussion “I am having an issue with point one in the staff recommendation,” said Katsoulis. The motion read: “That the Thruway Restaurant extend the existing natural drainage course and provide a route for a pathway on Part B. The town will then acquire Part A from NuGlobe as part of the subdivision approval process to connect the pathway drain.” “This functioning creek has absolutely nothing to do with my current development permit application,” stated Katsoulis, “and I am asking it be left out.” “We have a deadline for getting the tenant (McDonald’s) in the ground, which is Sept. 1,” he continued, “and we probably won’t make it with the

way things are going.” A frustrated Katsoulis told council if he loses the tenant there is no more development. “You won’t need to worry about the creek,” he said. “Why? Because at the end of the day, without the tenant I will not proceed.” The young developer asked council to understand the creek would be dealt with in phase three of the planned project. “I’ve already discussed plans with Mr. Knowles at our meeting in April,” said Katsoulis. He added, Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority (MVCA) has no problem with the creek staying as is during phase one and phase two of the proposed development. “Again, I am asking you to please remove point one in the staff recommendation,” said Katsoulis, “and we will deal with it when I come back for phase three.” “The staff recommendation is very, very clear,” said Paul Knowles, the town’s chief administrative officer (CAO). “This is the appropriate time to deal with this.” In order for phase one of the planned development to get under way, Flynn asked if it was critical for item one to be dealt with now. “I believe it (phase one) can get underway immediately,” said Knowles. “All he has to do is agree. If he’s going to agree in the future, what’s the disadvantage of agreeing now?” “We don’t know what we are doing in that area of the development at this time,” answered Katsoulis. “To tell us we must do a certain thing right now is premature, don’t you think?” “No, I don’t agree,” said Knowles. “It is exactly where it should happen.” “I don’t understand,” responded Katsoulis. “What’s the issue? Do you just want the land, do you want the easement?” “We want to complete the drainage course,” said Knowles. “We want to obtain it now. We don’t want to wait for sometime in the future when you

may apply for a development permit application.” “This is what municipalities do,” he continued. “They take opportunities when they are presented, acquiring things that are necessary for the community.” Katsoulis noted, the 55,000 square foot development moving ahead is an opportunity for the tax base. Timing was also a concern for the CAO. “The MVCA states the creek functions,” said Katsoulis. “No modifications need to be done to the creek, and in front of this council, there is no evidence to suggest otherwise.” “It might require maintenance in the future,” said Knowles. “It may be problematic. We want to put a path in through there. It is important we acquire it at the earliest opportunity.” “Paul, we had a discussion in your office with my father when McNeely Avenue was built,” continued Katsoulis. “I asked, can we get the town to come in and clean out that ditch? Your answer to me was that the town does not get involved with creeks on private property.” “Exactly, which is why we want it in our name,” said Knowles. “If you want it in your name then you should

build (extend) it,” said Katsoulis. The CAO explained the Thruway Restaurant (the developer) is being required to extend the natural drainage course for the same reason Walmart was required to do it when they developed, and the same reason NuGlobe will be required to extend it when it develops its subdivision. “The entire area represents some fish habitat and you are constructing within fish habitat, and this is the compromise reached with the conservation authority,” said Knowles. “The conservation authority stated it did not need to be done on that portion – phase one and phase two,” said Katsoulis. “The town has different interests than the conservation authority,” said Knowles. “The town’s interest should be to get this project moving,” countered Katsoulis, “and not putting up more blockades.” “I am not going to argue with you Paul,” he added. “It’s quite obvious you are set in your ways.” “That’s enough,” interjected LeBlanc. “What do we plan on doing with the newly acquired parcel of land?” asked Antonakos.

“The constructed ditch would be finalized,” said Knowles. “Then we would work to improve the pathway system in the area to provide pedestrian access to the properties along the north side of Highway 7, to get a pathway system through the back of the properties along this constructed wetland because we don’t want to see pedestrians out on Highway 7. It’s a high priority.” Antonakos asked about the timing of the work. “As soon as we can, but this is the first step,” said Knowles. “A priority is defined as, as soon as we can?” questioned Antonakos. “We have money in the budget every year for pathways,” said Knowles. “There is a pathway already,” insisted Katsoulis, “which I provided.” “I think we’ve heard enough, unless we have another member of council who would like to make a comment,” said LeBlanc. “What if he signed something to say that he was going to do it (extension) in the third phase?” asked Strike.

“I don’t see any value in that whatsoever,” said Knowles. “Now is the opportunity.” “I am not in favour of holding up the project,” said Strike. “Why can’t you go ahead with this, Bill?” asked the mayor. “Quickly sign the papers and indicate you are going to extend the existing drainage course and provide a route for a pathway on Part B.” “Constructing the creek is not pocket change,” said Katsoulis. “It’s a big financial commitment. I’m not Walmart, I’m not SmartCentre. I don’t have millions to throw around. We are already over $100,000 into this, and we don’t have anything.” “I am bringing a development to the table that will bring tax dollars to this town,” continued Katsoulis. “This development isn’t easy, it’s not a walk in the park. We thought our biggest challenge was MTO (Ministry of Transportation). It’s not, it was dealing with the town.” Money is an issue Katsoulis met with his financial company. Moreover, the exact plans for phase three are still somewhat undecided. “No McDonald’s,

no project,” he said. “That’s the bottom line. That’s where we are at.” It was noted item one came in well after comments were due for the development permit application. “Can we not hold the staff, the town accountable to the same conditions that you are holding me to?” asked Katsoulis. “I just want to make sure that this is the only thing holding this project up,” said Flynn. “There is obviously one thing we can not speak about, which is being dealt with in camera.” said Katsoulis. NuGlobe has filed a lawsuit against the town, relating to the entrance onto McNeely Avenue. “In regards to my application, this is the only thing for me,” he added. “Let’s find a way to get this taken care of,” said Flynn. Taking questions and comments from the gallery, local developer Volunder (Wally) Thorbjornsson said, “I can see where this is going, I understand what Bill is going through.” “If Bill doesn’t get his approval, he is going to lose his anchor tenant – and therefore lose his project,” he continued.

Local Red Hatters to invade Carlingwood Shopping Centre

R0012203249_0711

News – On Thursday, Aug. 15, ladies in red and pink hats will add fun and flare to Carlingwood Shopping Centre. Members of the Red Hat Society (RHS) will be out and about, playing games, shopping and promoting the principles of the society: fun, friendship, fulfillment, freedom and fitness. Local members of the Red Hat Society, the world’s largest playgroup for women, will be participating in the capital’s Inaugural Red Hat “Mall Crawl” at Carlingwood Shopping Centre, 2121 Carling Ave. in Ottawa. Carleton Place has four Red Hat chapters, including: the Shopping Sherpas, the Positively Meno-pausitives, the Ottawa Valley Sassy Lassies and the Sophisticats. Smiths Falls, Perth and Ashton also have chapters.

Dressed in purple and wearing red hats, the ladies will brighten and add colour to everyone’s experience at the mall, whether shopping or just peoplewatching. Registered supporting members of the society will receive swag bags and gift cards. Red Hat Society ambassador Sandra Dormer says Centre Court at the mall will be an oasis of Red Hat hospitality and fun. Visitors will get to view pictures of Red Hatters in action, covet some rather spectacular hats, be awed by the diversity of red hat accoutrement and chat with ladies of the society. Barbara Gowan, also an ambassador of the society, adds that Hatters will be everywhere in the mall, shopping and competing for Mall Crawl prizes. Only registered members of the Red Hat Society will be eligible to compete.

Dormer and Gowan are two of 70,000 women in more than 30 countries in pursuit of fun and frivolity. The Red Hat Society is an international and inclusive society. It welcomes ladies of all stripes and ages (those 50 and over wear red and purple as Red Hatters and those under 50 wear pink and lavender regalia and are lovingly referred to as Pink Hatters). It began as a result of a few women deciding to greet middle age with verve, humour and élan more than 15 years ago. Members believe silliness is the comedic relief of life. Underneath the frivolity, members share a bond of affection, forged by common life experiences and a genuine enthusiasm for wherever life takes them. The event will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

THE TOWNSHIP OF LANARK HIGHLANDS

“Is it really more important for the town to retain control of the creek instead versus securing the development?” “I guess I would ask, is it more important to the developer to hang on to land that he will end up giving to the town in the future,” said Knowles. “It’s not just the town’s decision, it’s the developers decision.” “No, the town put a condition on the developer,” said Katsoulis.

EDITORIAL

Rail tragedy cuts too close to our homes Editorial – Ask not for whom the train whistle calls, it calls for thee. Lanark County is ideally situated in the heart of eastern Ontario to be railroad central. Smiths Falls’ history is tied up with the railroad, and is the home of the Railway Museum of Eastern Ontario. Freight from Ottawa to Kingston and onwards also goes through Smiths Falls. The VIA Rail station for the county is also in the town. Perth also has a major rail line cutting through major residential areas and, until recently, Carleton Place also had rail lines running through the southern edge of its downtown core. Very often, in the building of this great country, the rail lines came through, and then the towns sprouted up around them. That is why, with the exception of Ottawa, you will find in places like Toronto and Montreal, major train stations located right downtown. That is convenient, but is also part of the problem. All eyes were on Lac-Megantic, Quebec this week. About 13 people are confirmed dead, as of this writing, and about 50 are

missing. Investigators are still poring over just what exactly happened, but looking at the before and after shots is beyond sobering. The restaurants, museums and shops downtown, completely destroyed, along with several residences. If it can happen in rural, small town Quebec, it can happen in rural, small town Ontario. One need only look at the countless train cars carrying oil, or some other toxic substance, while waiting at the railway lights at Wilson Street in Perth, or Highway 15 in Smiths Falls, to see just how close the homes of our neighbours are to potentially lethal substances which can destroy dozens of homes in minutes. We got an odd prologue to this story with those rail cars carrying oil that got stuck on the rail bridge over one of Calgary’s swollen rivers. The city’s mayor chided the rail company for its lack of action. While we are still awaiting an answer to the many questions arising from the destruction in Quebec, we need to re-look at why chemicals like crude oil are being trans-

ported by rail. Issues have been raised by the American government over the type of rail cars that exploded in Quebec, that their metal “skin” was too thin. Some opponents of the Alberta-B.C. pipeline had, before these incidents, suggested that transporting the oil sands materials by rail would be a good compromise. In the harsh light of day after the incidents in Calgary and Quebec, that proposal appears to have been shelved. The fact that we have to transport these chemicals at all should be upsetting to us. But, solutions for replacing the way we power our lives with more environmentally sound methods are still years off. Several years ago, Virgin Atlantic airlines started experimenting with “clean” airline fuel, laced with renewable substances, as part of a green push. A noble start, since most man-made carbon emissions come through transportation. But if all of the earth’s arable land were converted to simply feeding our

green fuel needs, it would only be able to meet 20 per cent of the world’s demand. We may not be able to prevent all train explosions, but we can certainly make the cars safer. We need rail, and it is an inconvenient truth that we also need these chemicals, so we need to find a way to make both compatible with our safety needs. Even if this was an unfortunate series of events, made with the best of intentions – well meaning firefighters whose first priority was putting out a fire, for example – there are still things that the railroad, and even local fire departments, can do differently, and better, in future. Doing so will mean that we can all sleep a little sounder at night here in eastern Ontario, the next time we hear that train whistle blow in the middle of the night, to know that there were lessons learned from Calgary and Quebec that have been applied to the rail tankers rumbling past our back yards.

Recipient of Community Builder’s Award accomplished but modest By KELLY KENT kkent@perfprint.ca

Photo by KELLY KENT

Gordon MacNabb, recipient of the Community Builder’s Award, stands in front of his “eagle wall”, a display of his various degrees, including 11 honourary, and his several awards.

boards and committees in the area, including the Mills Community Support board of directors, the Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital board and he is also the chair of the redevelopment community board. He has been on the Mills Community Support board of directors for more than 11 years, even though there is a limit on

how long you can serve. “I had to take a leave of absence for one year,” he said. “Because otherwise I would have been on the board for too many consecutive years.” He has also been on the CPDMH board for the past 10 years and has worked closely with various community projects. Since 2006, MacNabb has been the

chair of the redevelopment community board, working to improve the local area through a range of initiatives. Though he is still so busy, even 15 years past the traditional retirement age of 65, he and his wife still play shuffleboard regularly in Almonte and he shows no signs of slowing down. “I always seem to find myself doing something more,” he said.

News - Sitting in a beautiful but modest sitting room in an upper middle class suburb of Carleton Place, with two standard poodles Georgia, 8, and Kirby, 12, lying quietly on the rug, one would never guess they were in the presence of such an incredible person. Gordon MacNabb, 81, is the first recipient of the Community Builder’s Award, which was presented to him by Mills Community Support at their annual general meeting in June for his outstanding contributions to the local area. “The award was a big surprise,” said MacNabb. “I didn’t even know it existed until they presented it to me.” MacNabb has a long list of accomplishments under his belt, although getting him to talk about them is a challenge in itself; he is the definition of modest. “I don’t like talking about myself,” he said. “It’s a difficult thing to do.” But now is the time to brag, his wife said, and you only get to do it once. Some of his career highlights include: receiving all three Queen Elizabeth Jubilee medals – silver, gold and diamond; securing 11 honorary degrees from various post-secondary institutions (his children say he needs 12 to really make it count, though) and he is on several committees and boards in the community. “He’s so busy,” said MacNabb’s wife of 59 years, Lorna, with a laugh. “He’s always doing something for someone.” MacNabb said his heart is here, in this community, and he’s a local man through and through. Born in Almonte on July 13, 1931, MacNabb was raised in the area; he spent his childhood in a home on Flora St. in Carleton Place. He attended both ele-

mentary and high school in town and went on to get his engineering diploma from Carleton University in 1952 and a Bachelor of Science from Queen’s University in Kingston in 1954. It was when he was in university that he met his wife and they married in April of 1954. They had six children, four boys and two girls, who went on to provide them with 18 grandchildren. MacNabb started his career – which is still in motion today – in 1954 as first a junior and then a senior engineer with the Departments of Northern Affairs and Natural Resources and Energy and Mines and Resources Canada. He began working as a chairman on the Colombia River Treaty Permanent Engineering Board in 1967 and is still doing consulting work for the project today. “I’m the only one still walking and talking who was there at the beginning (of the project),” he said. “They want my memory bank.” He went on to have more than 18 jobs in his career, according to a copy of his resume, including 32 years with the federal government. “I’ve retired several times,” he said. “But I keep getting back into work, somehow.” His wife was quick to point out that he is starting his fifth retirement, even though he still does consulting work from home. The first time he retired in 1986, he and his wife moved to the Okanagan Valley in BC, but after seven years he realized that his heart was in Carleton Place so they moved back. “It just wasn’t home,” said MacNabb. “Even though people said we were crazy to leave the Okanagan.” In addition to his paid career work, MacNabb is also a volunteer on several

All roads lead to 155th annual traditional Almonte Fair from July 19-21 kkent@perfprint.ca

Events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;All Roads Lead to the Almonte Fair.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the theme for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s alwaysanticipated Almonte Fair, which will be held at the Almonte Fairgrounds next weekend, starting Friday, July 19. Marilyn Snedden, director of publicity and marketing for the fair, says that this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event will be much like the fairs of previous years that locals know and love. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is still a rural fair, first and foremost,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a time for city people to come out and talk to farmers, and for children to learn where their food actually comes from.â&#x20AC;? The festivities for the 155th annual Almonte Fair begin Friday afternoon at 1 p.m. with live music, a sheep shearing demonstration, demolition derby and more.

The educational barn will be open during all three days and will feature a veritable zoo of creatures: horses (including a brand-new foal), emus, llamas, ducks, goats, cows and the list goes on. Little Rayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Reptile Zoo and Papaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Trains will also be there for the duration of the weekend to teach children about reptiles and trains, respectively. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to give people an education, mainly to learn about real food,â&#x20AC;? said Snedden. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we hope weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re providing.â&#x20AC;? Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of fun and games mixed in with all that learning, though. All of the usual carnival rides and games will be there again this year along with the less high-tech games, like cow plop bingo and outhouse races. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Between the outhouse races and the cow plop bingo, I guess you could say weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting down and dirty,â&#x20AC;? said Snedden with a laugh.

Saturday has a full day of events, from livestock shows to more live music. Local country music star Jordan McIntosh will be performing that night at 7 p.m. Sunday will feature many of the same events as Saturday, and will be another packed day of festivities. Mike Deanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Super Food Stores, a new grocery store in Almonte, will collect nonperishable food items to benefit the Lanark Country Food Bank. Ballots will be given out to donators for a cash prize draw. A few new improvements will be added to the fair this year, said Snedden. A seniorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tent will be set up to provide shade and seating near the horse show and the live entertainment area. Cornerstone Community Church will also set up a tent for children with activities and entertainment. One major change, perhaps for the worse, this year is that there will be no parking available on Water St.,

said Snedden. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every year thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a new problem to overcome,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This (parking) is it, this year.â&#x20AC;? Snedden noted that fair coordinators are working to find an alternative parking

space, possibly at the arena. More information about the fair can be found at www.almontefair.ca, or like their Facebook page (www.facebook.ca/ AlmonteFair) for updates and a chance to win free tickets.

Augusta St. park concerts continue Entertainment â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Augusta St. Park Committee began as a community vision to make this Almonte park a safe, accessible community place where neighbours of all ages and abilities can meet to socialize and enjoy the lovely surroundings. This summer, the committee is hosting a series of five live music concerts, each Wednesday evening in the park, at no charge. They begin at 6 p.m. with an open mic session and are followed by the concerts. The schedule

of performers for the remaining concerts is as follows: â&#x20AC;˘ July 10: Judge A Book â&#x20AC;˘ July 17: Arlene Quinn â&#x20AC;˘ July 24: Barry Buse and the Redneck Limousine â&#x20AC;˘ July 31: Jennifer Noxon and Brendan Gawn The Almonte Civitan will host barbecues on July 17 and 31 and attendees are encouraged to bring something to share at a potluck picnic on July 10 and 24.

Register for Brett Pearson Run for Your Life coming up Sept. 28 tgesner@perfprint.ca

Events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Suicide is difficult subject, but to talk about it is the only way to possibly save a life. The Brett Pearson Run for Your Life is bringing suicide, mental illness and substance abuse out of the shadows and into the light. Nicole Pearson of Carleton Place established the event, now in its third year, following her sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death by suicide in 2006. This year the five-kilometre run/walk fundraiser, which is sponsored by the Carleton Place Drug Strategy Committee (CPDSC), is Saturday, Sept. 28 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Suicide Awareness Day â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Registration, which is mandatory, is from 9 to 10 a.m. at the Carleton Place Town Hall â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the eventâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s starting point. The run is competitive and time chipped. Prizes will be handed out for fastest time â&#x20AC;&#x201C; male, female, youth (under 18) and team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All the money raised is turned back into our community for educational purposes, presentations in schools, public forums and workshops,â&#x20AC;? said Nicole. This year the CPDSC is joining forces with the local Business Improvement Association (BIA) for the Brett Pearson Run for Your Life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am really enthused by way of this

partnership,â&#x20AC;? said Nicole, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and we can build upon the runâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success because of it.â&#x20AC;? She said it offers another layer of credibility. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are thrilled,â&#x20AC;? said Cathie McOrmond, BIA manager. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was an opportunity for us to do something really good. The BIA and the downtown merchants believe in this community. We believe in the people. We support them.â&#x20AC;? Suicide is the greatest life risk to young people and is second only to traffic collisions. There are nearly 4,000 suicides in the country (all age groups) each year, on the word of Statistics Canada. A Grade 11 student at Carleton Place High School, Brett was just 16 when he died. He was suffering emotionally, experiencing feelings of sadness, helplessness and hopelessness. He became depressed and started skipping school. His marks were dropping and he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t showing up at his part-time job. Brettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s personality changed and he turned to drugs as a way to escape his problems. During Septemberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s run, speakers will share personal stories with reference to suicide and mental health, and display booths from various health-care and volunteer organizations will illustrate what local resources are available. There will be local entertainment as well. A Parade of Life, headed by the

There were just over 100 run participants in 2012. Individuals unable to take part in the Brett Pearson Run for Your Life can still have an impact. Make a donation at any Scotiabank in Carleton Place, Stittsville, Kanata or Ottawa. Simply indicate the donation is for the Brett Pearson Memorial Run c/o The Town of Carleton Place. Moreover, mail a cheque, payable to the same fund name, to the Town of

Carleton Place, 175 Bridge St., Carleton Place, ON, K7C 2V8. Visit www.cpdrugstrategy.com to acquire additional information, print a pledge sheet or register (Events Online link). Online registration closes at midnight on Sept. 27; however, onsite registration is available on day of the event. The fees for individuals are as follows: $25 from July 1 to Aug. 31 and $40 until the day of the run. A team challenge is being issued this year, said Nicole. Participants are encouraged to sign up in teams of two to four people (family, friends or cowork-

ers). The cost per team: $30 before June 30; $40 from July 1 to Aug. 31; and $50 until the day of the run. The fee will be waved for the first team of four registered from each area school. Race kits are available to individuals registered the morning of the event, and the first 300 participants receive a T-shirt. Message of Hope Nicole, a member of the CPDSC continues to deliver â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;My Message of Hopeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to area schools, a story about the loss of her son. Often emotional, the conversation usually precedes presentations from the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) and Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) about drugs and alcohol. Brett called his mom at work the day he died by suicide. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sense any desperation in his voice,â&#x20AC;? she said, during a talk at Notre Dame Catholic High School last November. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was just a normal conversation.â&#x20AC;? She ended the call with the words â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love you,â&#x20AC;? which provides some comfort. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatever made him decide to carry out this act, I know at that moment he could not think clearly or logically,â&#x20AC;? said Nicole. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Brett wanted a permanent solution to a temporary problem. He wanted the pain to go away.â&#x20AC;? She found her son after returning home from work. R0012204830/0711

St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church in Franktown gets facelift after 111 years originally constructed with softer lime mortar. The freeze thaw cycle, which occurs each year, caused that moisture to break down the core of the most exposed parts of the tower. Research has discovered that it is better to re-point with softer mortar which â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;wicksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; the moisture to the surface where it can evaporate.â&#x20AC;? The current re-pointing is the beginning of efforts to save this amazing landmark for the benefit of the community. Addressing the churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s original metal roof is the current priority. Some temporary work has been done, but a more lasting solution needs to be completed. Whether the entire metal surface is replaced or is refurbished, it is anticipated that roofers will be seen at St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United in the near future. In addition to the churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regular activities and outreach efforts, other steps are planned to preserve our shared heritage this building represents and insure it can be accessed for whatever purposes would a benefit the community and individuals of the surrounding area. Any support or encouragement would be warmly received. Submitted by St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A historic landmark in the center of Franktown is undergoing a facelift. St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church, with its impressive tower and turret, is one of the most architecturally unique churches in the area. It was constructed 111 years ago under the influence of well-known Canadian architect, Moses Chamberlain Edey of Ottawa (who designed the Aberdeen Pavilion in Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lansdowne Park). In order to preserve and maintain this historic landmark, the small congregation is actively searching for ways to achieve its goal. The first step occurred when Keystone Traditional Masonry volunteered their workers to repair the churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tower. The magnificent tower was last addressed in a significant way in 1975. At that time the Ministry of Transportation and Communication (forerunner to the MTO â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ministry of Transportation of Ontario) recommended the church re-point and repair the tower for safety reasons. James Reid of Keystone Traditional Masonry says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The theory then was that mortar should be as hard and strong as possible. However, the harder mortar trapped moisture in the two-foot thick walls that were

New leadership at Storm Internet Services boosts revenue and employee growth Business – Established in 1996 and re-energized by an experienced techsector management team in 2010, today Storm Internet Services Inc. is an Ottawa success story that prides itself on local call centre staff who pick up the phone and provide real answers, no fixed contracts, and tailored solutions. Privately owned and profitable, the company’s revenue has grown 40 per cent over the last 24 months. DSL and fibre customer growth is up 50 per cent, wireless customer growth is up 100 per cent, and the number of employees is up 40 per cent to 40 people over this period. “We are keying into everything from mild disaffection to overt rage at how large Internet services providers (ISP) go about their business,” says Storm’s chief executive officer (CEO) Dave Chiswell. “There’s a lot of cookie-cutter service templates and offshore call centres that specialize in putting customers on hold. In that sense Storm’s the anti-ISP. Whether it’s a rural residential customer who needs more bandwidth for a virtual private network (VPN), or mid-size companies with specific Internet or hosting requirements, we listen carefully and respond quickly. That’s our difference.” While wireless and DSL residential Internet services are a vital business component, currently 50 per cent of Storm’s business comes from hundreds of commercial customers that rely on innovation, flexibility and dependability. They seek services ranging from wireless networks, fibre, DSL, and WiFi for indoor and outdoor corporate and cultural events, to various hosting services and server colocation These customers, that include everything from coffee shops, car dealerships and large construction companies

to government agencies and embassies, praise Storm’s agility and willingness to provide customized solutions for nonstandard Internet services. In 1996, when the scream of a dial-up modem was associated with wired-only Internet delivery, Storm started with a core team of eight employees, in offices on Sparks St. The firm had a call centre, provided dial-up services, some web hosting and supported one colocation client. During several ownership and management changes, the company began developing its core expertise in wireless delivery based on what were then primarily rural deployments. In 2010 Chiswell became CEO. He joined the firm a year earlier in 2009 and brought his Ottawa tech sector roots and senior management experience with firms in Dallas, Ottawa, and Virginia. Jonathan Black, another Ottawa tech industry veteran, assumed duties as CFO the same year. The new leadership team initiated a wireless network build-out to bring their services to Lanark County. Storm developed an original concept to get service into difficult rural areas, a mininode system where a wireless signal goes from a Storm tower to equipment mounted on everything from a barn roof to a silo and then to the customer’s home or business. In 2011 Storm made a bid to provide more rural wireless infrastructure under the Eastern Ontario Regional Network (EORN). This is a multi-million-dollar project to bring rural broadband to 95 per cent of homes and businesses in eastern Ontario outside of Ottawa. With funding assistance from the Royal Bank of Canada, the Business Development Bank of

Storm Internet Services Inc. chief executive officer, Dave Chiswell. Canada, Export Development Canada, and Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry Community Futures Development Corporation (CFDC). Storm won the bid to upgrade wireless services in Lanark, and the Ottawa Valley South areas of the project.“This is the largest contract win in the company’s history,” says Chiswell. “It’s definitely going to help drive the next phase of our corporate growth and what we’re learning about delivering higher speed wireless applies equally well to all markets and customers we serve.” Storm’s new 10 megabit per second download/1 Mbps upload wireless service will cover rural areas surrounding

Perth and Lanark such McDonald’s Corners and Maberly as well as Chesterville, Winchester and Portland – areas that are not always able to access more traditional wire-line services. Rolling out throughout 2013, this new high-speed wireless will be able to provide an estimated 50,000 rural homes and business in the Lanark and Ottawa Valley areas with 21st century Internet access on par with wired services available in most Canadian cities and towns. Looking to further regional and commercial growth, last year Storm rounded out its management team with Ian Habinski, vice-president of commercial sales, who brought 16 years of corporate sales management; and Chris Reinkeluers, director of operations, Lanark, who came to Storm with more than 25 years of combined experience in engineering, operations and quality assurance. As a large regional ISP focused on urban Ottawa, rural Lanark and the Ottawa Valley, Chiswell aims to maintain a growth rate of 25 to 30 per cent each year for the next several years – a pace that his team believes will allow the company to maintain its high level of service that has earned Storm its legendary customer loyalty. “Storm Internet Services has knowledgeable people who bring solutions to our problems,” says Mike Rouleau, director of operations, RBC Bluesfest and Ottawa Folk Festival. “They are a local firm that enables us to substantially expand and improve our services providing concertgoers with real added value.”The 2013 RBC Bluesfest runs July 4 to 14, and this year Storm is blanketing the music festival with 10 wireless networks to handle everything from ticketing to WiFi hotspots for concertgoers to use while on-site. It is Storm’s most complex out-

door event wireless project. Over its years in business Storm has acquired several smaller ISPs including Superaje of Perth, Ottawa’s CompMore, Carp and Osgoode Station’s Ariba, and Carleton Place’s Horizon Technologies. Most of these acquisitions involved customers that could be easily migrated to Storm’s suite of services, and Storm remains on the hunt for future acquisitions to build its customer base. Storm’s future growth will also depend on its ongoing commitment to local service and support. While its 14,000 square-foot corporate headquarters remain located in west-end Ottawa, in March 2011 a five-person regional office opened in Perth. In 2012 another regional office opened in Chesterville. Other regional office openings are planned in 2013 and 2014. About Storm Internet Services Ltd. The mission of Storm Internet Services is to provide fast and reliable Internet access to business and residential clients supported by superior customer service.

New Chair and Vice Chair of AGH/FVM Foundation excited about the future The new Chair and Vice Chair of the Almonte General Hospital/Fairview Manor (AGH/FVM) Foundation are excited about new opportunities to support the work of the Hospital and Manor. Al Lunney and Debbie Quarrington assumed the positions of Chair and Vice Chair, respectively, in June. Both joined the Foundation Board in 2011. “I got involved with the Foundation because I am committed to the Hospital,” says Mr. Lunney, who is a former Mayor of Mississippi Mills. “I was Mayor when the AGH/FVM Redevelopment Project was completed and officially opened, and, our family has also used the Hospital.” Ms. Quarrington, who owns the Almonte Tim Hortons, joined the Board because she believes the Hospital and Manor are vital parts of the local area. “Almonte is very lucky to have such a great hospital and long-term care home,” she says. “I wanted to support them in any way I could.” The Foundation’s current priority is to raise

funds to buy new equipment and replace wornout equipment. “The Redevelopment Project put the Hospital front and centre, but now that we are no longer in a capital campaign, we need to let the community know the Foundation is still here and that the Hospital and Manor have equipment needs that must be met,” explains Mr. Lunney. “We need to get out into the community and tell people, including newcomers to the area, about all the spectacular things the Hospital and Manor provide. We also need to reach out to everyone outside of Mississippi Mills who uses our

facilities, such as residents of Lanark Highlands and West Carleton.” Ms. Quarrington, who helped organize a spring dinner and dance to raise funds for the Foundation, says special events are important to the Foundation and to the community. “Special events raise needed funds, and also help us share the purpose of the Foundation and of our fundraising efforts,” she explains. The Foundation Board, which has a number of new members, is currently planning activities to raise awareness of the Hospital and Manor and of their equipment needs. “The convenience and peace of mind the Hospital and Manor bring to our community are priceless,” says Ms. Quarrington. “None of it would be possible without our great physicians and staff, along with all the volunteers, and, of course, the generous donors who support the Foundation. We very much appreciate all their efforts and support.”

Events – Lanark Laughs is holding its first annual stand up comedy contest, Battle @ Ballygiblin’s, this July. The contest runs July 6 to 13 and the finals are going to be on July 20. The comics will be split into two groups: up and comers, with a cash

Junior “B” Hockey Players prize of $100; and seasoned comics, with a prize of $250. Up and comers are still fairly new to comedy, but are definitely going places, and seasoned are, you guessed it, seasoned comics that have been around a while. Guest judges will determine who moves on to the next round, and whose dreams get crushed, (sending them down the path of bitter comic). What started out as a way for area comics to get more stage time, has

Beau, Jean Shorten, Julie Mikolaitis, Lynda Riddell, Dianne Elliott, Carol Couture, Anne Buchanan, Lois Anne Brebner and Mary MacNaughton “adopted” and dressed 12 tables with fine linens, beautiful silver cutlery, lovely crystal and fine china. Centrepieces of fresh flowers for each table were made by Doreen Harris. A colourful 25th anniversary banner on loan from Golden Triangle Signs adorned the reception table. Anne Buchanan made a beautiful arrangement to complement the 25th anniversary cake table. Anne Buchanan and Heather LeBeau made corsages and a boutonniere

for the original executive and founding members – Anne Tokaruk, Karen Finkler, Hugh Hopkins, Maggie Lenny, Lucille Shaver, Ruth Larmour, Shirley Sheinfield and Heather LeBeau. The society’s president Paul Pietsch welcomed members and guests. Ronette Vines said Grace and everyone then enjoyed a sumptuous five-course potluck dinner. The anniversary cake was cut by the society’s first president, Anne Tokaruk. Following dinner while the gathering enjoyed tea and coffee the youngest member of the society, Daniel Brumar, was presented with a cheque to assist in his study of chemistry at

Carleton University. He was also presented with his ten-year membership pin. Brumar was nine-years-old when he joined. The society is a member of District Two of the Ontario Horticultural Association and their representative, Katherine Lindsay presented Paul Pietsch with a certificate commending 25 years. Katherine also noted that research showed there had been a horticultural society in Carleton Place from 1914 to 1940, which sadly disbanded due to the Second World War. Shirley Sheinfield spoke of an article which appeared in the Carleton Place Canadian newspaper when the Sheinfields garden on Napoleon St. was featured. She made several amusing remarks and told how she and husband Ted have always enjoyed being a part of the society. Barbara Miche of the Perth Horticultural Society spoke about African

violets and the evening ended with draws for door prizes. Special thanks to Tara Gesner of the Canadian Gazette for her excellent article about the society which appeared in the May 30 issue. Also thank you to The Floral Boutique, The Blossom Shop, Reid Gardens and Carleton Place Nursery who donated door prizes. Thank you as well to Golden Triangle Signs who lent the 25th anniversary banner. The Carleton Place and District Horticultural Society is a registered charity. There are no meetings during July and August. Our next meeting will be on Wednesday, Sept. 4 at 7 p.m. at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church hall, 39 Bridge St. (enter on Beckwith St), Carleton Place. New members, particularly those new to gardening are welcome. For more information, call Ruth Larmour at 613-257-4101 or got to www.cphorticulture.ca.

CPHS student top winner in film festival News – A Carleton Place High School (CPHS) student and a North Grenville District High School (NGDHS) were recently recognized as the winners of the MyView Youth Film Festival at the Kemptville Dandelion Festival. Students Liam Ryan (CPHS) and Dylan Bogie (NGDHS) accepted a cheque for $1,000, which they split since both films were recognized as top winners. Ryan’s video is called “One Wouldn’t Hurt,” while Bogie’s is called “Changes.” The festival was open to students aged 12 to 18 across Leeds, Grenville and Lanark who wanted to showcase their thoughts about environment, culture, community, health, and/or their future in film. A number of submissions were nominated by a committee of select community members. The nominated films were then showcased at public screenings for the audience to vote on.

Carleton Place library recognized for summer reading program By TARA GESNER tgesner@perfprint.ca

News – Kudos to Carleton Place Public Library (CPPL) and children’s librarian Heidi Sinnett. Sinnett and the CPPL received the 2012 TD Summer Reading Club Library Awards second place prize – $2,500 and a plaque. A presentation took place on June 1 in Winnipeg, during the closing ceremonies of the Canadian Library Association. Since 2007, the TD Summer Reading Club Library Awards have recognized the most innovative and effective TD Summer Reading programs in local public libraries across Canada. Every year CPPL runs a program, which is sponsored by TD Bank Group, Library and Archives Canada and Toronto Public Library. “The purpose is to encourage reading,” said CPPL manager Janet French. “The purpose is to encourage participation, and not just in the library,

also in the community.” Each year there is a different theme, and ‘Imagine’ was the theme of CPPL’s winning program. “Heidi’s creative in her thoughts,” said French, with a laugh. The library manager and Sinnett shared the good news with town council last Tuesday night, June 25. “Congratulations,” said mayor Wendy LeBlanc. “I think we all recognize the wonderful service the library provides for all ages, and certainly the summer reading program. It’s always exciting and a lot of fun.” “One of the things that makes this very special is our size,” said French. “We are not a huge community, and first prize went to a city – Cambridge. I think that we should be very honoured.” CPPL staff was flown to Winnipeg to accept the award. “On a large screen they showed our 2012 summer reading wall, including our crazy gnome,” said

Sinnett. “It was received very, very well.” The gnome was given away to a child at the end of the summer. “This gnome visited many places in town, including the town hall,” said Sinnett, with a laugh. “He had his picture taken, and he was welcomed warmly by everyone. This summer’s theme is “GO.” The official kick off was held on Friday, June 27, with a lemonade stand. “Our staff is wonderful to follow whatever I dream up each summer,” said Sinnett. “We have such a wonderful time, and hopefully it (idea) brings in the kids and encourages them to read.” “This is what we are really trying to do – not win prizes or money,” she continued.

“This year Heidi has built an imaginary city,” said French, “and we are all going to our city over the summer.” “It sounds like a lot of fun,” said LeBlanc. “Again, congratulations.” Deputy mayor Ed Sonnenburg added his many happy returns. In Perth recently for an event at his granddaughter’s school, Sonnenburg noted presentations were made to children for reading 200, 300 and 400 books. “For those who think reading is disappearing, I think they are a little premature,” he said. “It’s a wonderful thing to do and get into.”

YARD OF THE WEEK

R0012205783_0711

Lifestyle – Young birds are very busy calling for food, keeping the parents scurrying around looking for food items. Sometimes, the youngsters try to follow the parent bird and end up on the ground. A young Northern Cardinal was spotted by Julia Heathcote on her lawn, in Carleton Place. The parents would continue to feed it, luring it closer to a place of safety. In Mississippi Mills, Peggy McPhail watched as six Cedar Waxwings dined on service berries in a tree by her house, June 25. A report from Christine Murphy, with a picture of an Osprey, tells the tale of a Turkey Vulture competing with this Osprey for the perch at the top of a dead tree across the street from Christine’s home. Also in the Mills, Mary and Howard Robinson have enjoyed watching a family of Common Loons from their dock on Clayton Lake. On their property, they have obtained a very good photo of a male Scarlet Tanager, shown above. They suspect it is nesting at their place. Leading out of Carleton Place, a pond along Highway 7 had an unusual waterbird on it. As Joyce and Mike Jaques were driving by, a bird there looked like a Common Gallinule. With no place to stop and look, they came home that way. The bird was no longer there, nor the following morning. It was definitely not a Grebe, but could have been an American Coot. If anyone sees this bird, please call or email

Congratulations

Anyone who regularly passes by the home of Alan and Bonnie Jones will agree that this yard is always tidy and alive with colour no matter what the season. The current view offers a lovely assortment of cheery annuals that are individually appealing but when repeated offer great impact and contrast to Bonnie’s favourite perennial, the hosta. Fellow gardeners will appreciate Bonnie’s advice to “get as dirty as you can” in order to get the most out of your garden.

Celebrate seven years with People First of Lanark County tgesner@perfprint.ca

Events – Anniversaries are important milestone events, whether it’s a dating anniversary, a wedding anniversary, or any other special occasion. Members of People First of Lanark County (PFoLC) will gather with staff, family, friends, community partners and others on July 21 to celebrate the organization’s seventh anniversary. Through the years PFoLC has worked exceedingly hard on behalf of all people with disabilities, ensuring they get to live a life with dignity and respect. Highlights include: Protecting Vulnerable People Against Picketing Act, inclusive education, giving back to the community (Bunny Run and Community Christmas Dinner), community acceptance, community partnerships (Community Living AssociationLanark County and the Mills Community Support Corporation) and anti-bullying campaign. Setting a remarkable precedent for selfadvocacy groups across the province is the reason Community Living Ontario presented PFoLC with its 2010 James Montgomerie Community Award. The anniversary event takes place from 2 to 5 p.m. at the PFoLC headquarters in Carleton Place, located at 355 Moffatt St. Festivities are open to all, said Kory Earle, former leader of PFoLC and current president of People First of Ontario. For a short period he is back at PFoLC to offer help and provide guidance. After nearly seven years of leadership, he bid farewell to the organization on Feb. 1. Presently, Manon Lepine is PFoLC’s

president and Diane Sexsmith is executive director. “We encourage everyone to come out and help celebrate a huge milestone!” said Earle. Once again, the Town of Carleton Place has officially declared July 21 People First Day. “There will be a 50/50 draw and door prizes,” said Earle, “as well as a fundraising barbecue, cake cutting ceremony and presentation of the President’s Award.” Four years ago, PFoLC created its President’s Award, which honours a person, organization or business for their major commitment to the local chapter. Past winners include Tara Gesner, Kathy Seguin and Carleton Place Coun. Jerry Flynn. New this year is the handing out of Community Awards. Speeches commence at 2 p.m. Speakers include Earle, Lepine, Flynn and Carleton Place Mayor Wendy LeBlanc. As a special treat, Lanark Drum will perform. Established in 2011, the group works with the healing power of music using aboriginal hand drums, and songs can be sung in celebration, to record history, or for personal strength and prayer. Gatherings are fairly informal. In the beginning When Earle moved to Carleton Place in 2004, he became involved with Community Living Association (Lanark County). In May 2006, the organization’s then executive director approached him about working together to see if a People First chapter would survive in the area. From the very beginning, people in Carleton Place were receptive. There was a need. As a result, the first official meeting of PFoLC took place July 21, 2006.

“Ever since then we’ve stood together united, educating and helping people,” said Earle in a previous interview with the Canadian Gazette. “People’s lives have changed; we’ve giving them a voice. PFoLC does not receive financial support R0012201979/0711

YOUR DONATION COUNTS!

Please take a moment and reflect on what our community would be like without our hospital. Our health care team has one main focus—YOU—the patient. In the last year the health care team has touched the lives of countless people and their families with their compassion, skill and expertise. Every gift you give impacts the quality of care we are able to provide. Your support purchases essential patient care equipment that is not funded by the Ministry of Health—equipment we can’t afford to be without. We count on you to help us provide quality and patient-focused care. This year the Foundation has a $341,700 commitment to the Hospital for Patient Equipment Care needs alone. Thank you—YOUR donation counts!

… Monthly Giving

Monthly giving is a tremendous way to ensure your gift works harder. It’s the most effective way to provide steady, on-going funds to help the Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital. Not only is a monthly debit amount a more manageable way to give a generous gift—it saves administrative costs in envelopes and postage too.

Almonte Lawn Bowling Club marks more than 100 years of existence By KELLY KENT kkent@perfprint.ca

Sports – The Almonte Lawn Bowling Club (ALBC) celebrated its 100th – or 102nd – anniversary on Friday, July 5. The club, which was started in 1911, held a tournament and a ceremony last Friday to celebrate 100 years of lawn bowling, even though the club is now officially 102 years old. Cliff Bennett, president of the club, said in a speech to the many traditionally white-clad members of the club that he was preparing to celebrate the club’s 80th birthday this year but discovered during his research that the 80 years actually referred to the club’s current location; the club had existed for an additional 22 years at a different spot. “So even though the club is officially 102-years-old,” he said, “we decided to go ahead and continue with our original plan.” So the club celebrated more than 100 years of existence with cake and a small ceremony. Awards were presented by the Ontario Lawn Bowls Association and the town on Mississippi Mills to the club and were accepted by Bennett. The ALBC used to be situated on Almonte Old Town Hall’s lawn beside the river, back in 1911 before the arrival of cars meant the lawn needed to be converted to a parking lot.

St. John the Baptist Catholic parish celebrates 190 years of faith Lifestyle – Throughout the years St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Perth has hosted many religious celebrations. The commemorative mass and dinner on June 23 to mark the 190th anniversary of the parish and the 165th anniversary of the church building certainly took its place in history as a memorable occasion. Chuck Stewart, chair of the parish pastoral council and master of ceremonies for the event, welcomed the congregation to the gathering in the parish church on Wilson St. East. Parishioners past and present joined in the Sunday Mass of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist, celebrated by His Grace, Archbishop Brendan O’Brien of the Archdiocese of Kingston. In his homily Archbishop O’Brien spoke of the importance of discipleship in the church from the time of its founding by Jesus Christ almost two thousand years ago, a discipleship apparent among Perth’s priests and faithful for almost 200 years. Joining the Archbishop in the celebration of Mass was Father Brian McNally, present pastor of the parish, and more than a dozen priests from throughout the Archdiocese. A similar number of Sisters of Providence of St. Vincent de Paul attended and were recognized for their contribution to the educational and spiritual life of St. John’s parish and schools, and their positive influence on the community-at-large. The church was decorated with festive banners for the occasion, the voices of the parish choir led the congregation in filling the church with song, and the Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus ceremoniously accompanied the entrance and recessional processions. Canon Christine Piper, pastor of St. James Anglican Church and president of the Perth Ministerial Association, spoke eloquently of

Those present at the 190th Anniversary Mass in St. John the Baptist celebrated its longstanding history in the community with a celebraCatholic Church in Perth gather for a photo recently as the community tion June 23. St. John the Baptist Parish’s place among the churches of Perth, then and now. Perth mayor John Fenik brought greetings on behalf of the town of Perth, citing the positive impact that St. John’s has had on the community for so many years. Drawing an imaginative word picture of what life was like for Catholics and their priests during the earliest years of the nineteenth century, Deacon Brent McLaren created a better understanding of the times for the congregation through his masterful story-telling. Deacon David Cavalier spoke of the architecture of the parish churches of St. Brigid’s (1820-48) and St. John’s (1848 to the present). He vividly described the unique architecture of St. John the Baptist Church, listing the chronology of additions and renovations, includ-

ing the expansion of the building, the addition of the beautiful and inspiring stained glass windows and Stations of the Cross, the decorative columns, the altar, artwork and statues. Congratulatory letters were received from federal Member of Parliament Scott Reid and provincial Member of Parliament Randy Hillier. Following mass the congregation gathered on the church’s front steps for a photograph to mark the historic occasion. Besides a commemorative program for the mass, an historical bookmark outlining the life of the parish from even before 1823 to our modern day was distributed. After mass more than 240 people gathered at Farrell Hall for a wonderful dinner and social evening to conclude the day’s celebration. His-

torical displays capturing significant moments of the parish graced the hall. Sister Sandra Shannon, General Superior of the Sisters of Providence, spoke on behalf of her community of Sisters, relating how welcome the Sisters had always felt in Perth from their 1892 arrival right to the present day. Sister Shannon commented that St. John’s has been an important part of the lives of 136 Sisters of Providence over the years, and that the Sisters have felt blessed to be so well involved in the life of the schools, parish and community. Brent Laton, chair of the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario, outlined the close collaboration between the school and parish from earliest times through to today, speaking of the importance of the spiritual life in the teaching of stu-

dents. He congratulated all, including the present pastor, on their fine work in building the home-schoolparish partnership so successfully. Father McNally, in his closing remarks for the event, thanked all parishioners for their support of the anniversary, citing in particular Chuck Stewart and the parish pastoral council, Patrick Carroll and the 190th anniversary committee, parish staff and volunteers, and all who had worked so hard to make the day such a success. All in attendance were in strong agreement that the 190th and 165th anniversary celebration was a fitting tribute to the honoured place of St. John the Baptist Parish in the Perth community and beyond. Stay tuned for the 200th! Submitted by St. John the Baptist Parish, Perth.

Leamington man has top-down fun in a pair of Corvairs Lifestyle – General Motors astounded the auto industry when it launched a new compact car called the Corvair for the 1960 model year. This car had a rear-mounted, aircooled six-cylinder engine and remained in production until 1969. It was often described as the “American Volkswagen.” Bob Impens of Leamington, Ont., owns two Corvairs and both are convertibles. When he goes for a spin with

his wife Robin, he takes his white 1965 Corvair Monza convertible with automatic transmission and 110 horsepower. When he hits the road with 19-year-old son Riley, they do it in Bob’s red 1964 Corvair Monza Spyder convertible with four-on-the-floor and a turbo-charged engine cranking out 150 horsepower. Bob was born in 1957 in a farmhouse near Leamington. When he was 15, the family car was a 1961 Corvair 4-door

sedan which he drove around on his aunt and uncle’s farm before getting his licence. The car was later sold but Bob was hooked. In 1989, he bought a 1967 Corvair 2-door hardtop “for next to nothing.”

He repainted it maroon, then sold it. Around the dinner table one evening, his son Riley said: “Dad, you’ve told us a hundred times how much fun you had with those cars. Let’s

look for one and buy it!” And so father and son set off, looking at one Corvair after another all the way to New Brunswick, but returned home empty-handed. Then Bob heard of one stored in a barn north of Leamington close to where his daughter Brittaney lived. The odometer showed 17,000 miles. Bob bought it in 2006 and brought it home. He installed a new white top and new brakes and tires. The car has been a great source of fun for the whole family with drives all over southern Ontario. With a one-car garage at home, the ’65 Corvair was parked inside while the family car sat outside. This arrangement worked well until 2009 when Bob saw an ad for a 1964 Corvair Monza Spyder convertible in Hamilton, Ont. Bob and his son headed there while towing a flat-bed trailer.

A woman whose husband had passed away was selling it, and the car was just like new. Father and son fell in love with this lovely red convertible and paid the full asking price even though they had nowhere at home to keep it. The storage problem was soon solved with the construction of a large new building in the Impens’ back yard, known as “Bob’s Corvair garage.” Both cars are great fun to drive – and they attract smiles and waves wherever they go. I’m always looking for more stories. Email billtsherk@sympatico.ca or write Bill Sherk, 25 John St., P.O. Box 255, Leamington, ON N8H 3W2. Everyone whose story is published in this column will receive a free autographed copy of my latest book: “OLD CAR DETECTIVE FAVOURITE STORIES, 1925 to 1965.”

SAFETY TIPS Carbon Monoxide Alarms: Installing a carbon-monoxide alarm near the sleeping areas of your home will alert you to the presence of this deadly gas. It is a good idea to invest in a battery-operated alarm that will continue to work during power failures. Submitted photo

vehicle type, run a cursory once-over at the beginning of every trip, at the very least this one or two minute exercise would prevent a lot of vacation travel headaches if done before heading out for each leg of a longer trek. (Wheel fasteners donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t usually require pre-trip inspections on personal use vehicles). Checking tire pressures, including those on any trailer and the spare(s) should be at the top of the list. Running with low tire pressures with a fully loaded vehicle at highway speeds on a blistering hot day is a recipe for a blow-out. Have a helper lend a hand completing an exterior lamp check and

complete under-hood fluids, hoses, and belt(s) inspection before the engine gets started and warmed up. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget the trailer hitch and safety chains as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hi Brian, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard diametrically opposite theories about wheel alignment and new tires.

time. Putting on the tires first, risks having them wear unevenly before you get the alignment done if the specs are off. Getting the alignment specs checked and adjusted first (if adjustments are required) makes it difficult for any alignment tech, because, if the old tires are causing a pull to one side, the tech may suspect the newly adjusted alignment is off and attempt to incorrectly compensate for this. If possible get everything done at the same shop, but if thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not feasible, get things done on the same day at least. While the debate will always continue on whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worse: inattentive drivers or pedestrians, a creative group of Grade 11 students at Holy Cross School in Kingston have produced a great set of pedestrian safety videos and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re worth watching and sharing with all of your friends and family.

Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re definitely in summer travel season, judging from the increased traffic in cottage and vacation country, so perhaps a few hot summer tips on a variety of topics might not be a bad idea. So, in no particular orderâ&#x20AC;Ś Water, yes thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s water dripping from your air-conditioned vehicle while itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s idling on a hot humid day. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be surprised at how many drivers donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what that clear liquid dripping from their vehicles directly under the windshield cowl. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a condensation collector tray under every air-conditioned dash and by means of a rubber tube/nozzle; it drains water out of the vehicle. From time to time the flexible rubber flap on the end of the drain can stick shut and when this happens the drain-tray will overflow inside the vehicle providing a cold-feet surprise to any front seat passenger with open-toed shoes. In most cases all you have to do is locate this drain flap on the engine side of the firewall and squeeze it so it pops open allowing for a dry and cool ride inside. Batten down more than the hatches. Every summer more than a few collisions, not to mention, countless nearmisses are caused by improperly secured trailer loads, including boats. While vacationing drivers may be considerate enough to secure any loose gear in their trailered boat, they often forget to check on the condition and tension on the straps holding the boat onto the trailer. Most trailer suspension systems are far less advanced than those that hold up our vehicles. A sudden jounce or jolt due to a pothole or washboard surface, combined with a sharp cornering or lane-change maneuver, can easily lift the rear of a boat off the trailer with disastrous results. Take a moment to make sure everything is secure. Every commercial trucker knows the value of a walk-around. This inspection of tire pressure, wheel fasteners, lights, and other vital safety systems helps to reduce the risk of breakdowns and traffic mishaps. While it would be great to have every driver, regardless of their

In its 2013 action plan for seniors Independence, Activity and Good Health the Government of Ontario identified the current lack of provision of transportation services to seniors as a key issue in rural areas and it is certainly true that at the present time, seniors have few viable alternatives to owning their own vehicle. The idea behind the Country Shuttle is to help meet this need, to act as a bridge, by giving you an affordable transportation service to access health and any other services you may require. “The Country Shuttle is designed to work to the exclusive schedule of the individual, offering a door-to-door type service, taking you to your destination

The Country shuttle helps you get where you need to go! Designed with seniors in mind, the Country Shuttle helps seniors in the rural Kemptville and Smiths Falls area get access to services they need like medical appointments, grocery shopping or to visit friends and relations. “Isolation is a really big problem for seniors in our area” says Alan Maconnachie, Director at the Country Shuttle. Many seniors today prefer to continue living in their own homes as they age. Living in your own home has many advantages for active and independently mobile seniors, but sometimes problems and isolation can occur, especially if getting around becomes an issue. “Seniors love their independence. For many seniors, owning their own vehicle meant independence” says Mr. Maconnachie. This loss of independence can feel devastating. Car ownership is not a viable

Seventh annual Real to Reel Film Festival a hit video and act as editors. Everyone participates.â&#x20AC;? Participants at the festival enjoyed an impressive array of character-themed short films. One of the most impressive ones was entitled Benson Style, created by Benson Public School students. The film is a take-off of the Internet video craze Gangnam Style and featured a similar beat. Students sang their original tune and performed acts of character in the video including helping others and being kind, not cruel. Russell High School submitted a video called Chemistry. The video features two students who are working together on a chemistry project. Unknown to the boy in the video, the girl is â&#x20AC;&#x153;crushingâ&#x20AC;? on him, but many of her friends think she is out of the popular boyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s league. She changes to become the kind of girl she thinks will appeal to him. Instead, the boy tells her he liked her the way she was. When she returns to her normal self, the two finally get together as a couple. The message is to be yourself and not what others dictate. Students were impressed by this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s workshops. The stop-motion film seminar was particularly popular. Students created storyboards for character-

themed videos, then used objects such as toy dinosaurs, and plastic bugs, to create characters in their films. They used iPads to take photos, which they used to create stop-motion animation films using iMovie. Thousand Islands Secondary School student Shelly Lozo, and partners Jennifer Derrick and Em-

ily Laver, created a short video using fruit entitled Just Because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m Different, imploring students to stand up against bullying. In the film, a small lime is bullied by a bunch of large apples until a banana comes in to stop their behaviour and befriend the lime. Laver said the workshop provided a great outlet for studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; creativity.

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; More than 200 aspiring filmmakers learned their craft with character recently during the seventh annual Real to Reel Film Festival in Brockville, sponsored by the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB). Students from grades 3 to 12 viewed more than 50 character-inspired, student-produced films during the event, hosted at the Galaxy Cinemas. They also learned new production skills in workshops on topics such as stop-motion film production, greenscreen techniques, and Improv. Festival co-chairs Brenda Beaudette and Derek Cole say the event offers students an outlet for their creativity and helps develop communication skills and technical skills through film production. The festival is also representative of a board philosophy of teamwork and inclusion in education known as the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;All Means Allâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; philosophy, said Cole. Preparing character-based films for viewing at the festival enables students to express their creativity in the roles that best suit them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;All Means Allâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; this project is about just that,â&#x20AC;? said Cole. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Students write the scripts, perform as actors, shoot

Who has never dreamt, feather duster in hand, of discovering an ancient treasure hidden underneath thick layers of dust accumulated over the years? Who has never asked themselves, when standing in front of grandmaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old chest of drawers, if this antique would be of interest to antique dealers? Everything thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old is fascinating and you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be an expert on the subject to enjoy a visit to an antique dealer. Generally speaking, there are two different types of antique dealers, the ones in a rural setting and those in an urban area. A tour of antique dealers in a rural setting starts early in the morning, as these shops, sometimes part of the ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house, can be quite a long way from each other. Visiting antique dealers in an urban setting is very different as far as distance is concerned as the majority of large towns have an area dedicated to this type of shop. Once inside the antique shop, try and absorb the sense of history which surrounds the pieces for sale. Take the time to remember your childhood and all your good memories. Try to share the experience with someone from an older generation, which will increase your pleasure tenfold while at the same time enabling you to learn more about history. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hesitate to talk to the antique dealer himself, who will enjoy answering any questions you may have. Amble around the shop, daydream of distant times, learn about the past and your day at the antique dealerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s will have been a rewarding and enriching experience.

Entertainment – I don’t know what it is about those crazy yellow minions, but they crack me and my kids up every time. Just like the first one, Despicable Me 2 will bring tears to your eyes from laughing so hard, and maybe one or two from tugging on your heart strings.

Old Age Security benefit amounts increase EMC News – Human Resources and Skills Development Canada recently announced the quarterly benefit amounts for Old Age Security (OAS) for July to September 2013. The maximum basic OAS pension benefit paid to people 65 years of age and older will increase from $546.07 to $549.89 per month from July 1 to Sept. 30. This represents an increase of 0.7 per cent from the previous quarter. Payments under the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS), the Allowance and the Allowance for the Survivor will also increase by the same percentage. The OAS program consists of the basic pension, the GIS and the Allowances. The GIS and the Allowances provide additional benefits to eligible low-income pensioners and their spouses or common-law partners, as well as to eligible survivors. OAS benefit amounts are reviewed quarterly (in January, April, July and October) and revised as required to reflect increases in the cost of living, as measured by the Consumer Price Index (CPI) set by Statistics Canada. The last time OAS benefit amounts increased was in January 2013, when benefits were raised in response to an increase in the average CPI. Since then, the average CPI had initially decreased, but increased again in the last quarter. For further information, please consult the Service Canada website at www.servicecanada.gc.ca.

Gru (Steve Carell) is back and enjoying life as a suburban dad. Between birthday parties for the girls, dodging his whacky neighbour’s attempts to set him up, and creating truly awful jellies and jams with Dr. Nefario (Russell Brand) Gru’s plate is pretty full. Though I suppose there’s always room for saving the world. Lucy Wilde (Kristen Wiig) an agent of the Anti-Villain League kidnaps Gru and takes him to the AVL’s underwater headquarters. Most recently a villain has stolen a powerful mutagenic compound, and the AVL needs someone who thinks like a villain to catch a villain. They need Gru. Gru and Lucy go undercover in a mall to spy on the AVL’s top suspects.

My Take MARK HASKINS

Gru is eager to be back in the game, but saving the world isn’t his only concern. Margo (Miranda Cosgrove) has discovered boys, and Agnes (Elsie Fischer) has been hinting at wanting a mom. It’s enough to make an ex-super villain pull out his fart gun. Despicable Me 2 is a slapstick bonanza. It’s one gag after another in a non-

stop laugh fest that will have your sides hurting. I honestly can’t remember the last time I laughed this much in a movie theatre. As wonderfully silly as Despicable Me 2 is, it’s also a great story with some great characters you really connect with. There are times when I felt it jumped around too quickly, but for the most part this is a warm and fuzzy comic adventure of epic proportions. Miranda Cosgrove, Dana Gaier, the adorable Elsie Fischer and the deviously witty Russell Brand all return to voice their beloved characters. Steve Coogan joins in as the head of the AVL Silas Ramsbottom, and Benjamin Bratt jumps in the ring as the voice of suspected villain Eduardo. I’ve been a big fan of Steve Carell for

a long time. He’s managed to do a lot of different films and varied characters, but I think my favorite is Gru. I love the concept, I love the voice, and I love his delivery. It’s sheer brilliance. Kristen Wiig lends her voice to Lucy Wilde, Gru’s partner and love interest. Wiig gives Lucy a zany manic quality that is hilarious while at the same time making her the perfect fit for Gru. Of course the big scene-stealers are the minions voiced by Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud. They’ve taken animated slapstick and elevated it to the level of art. As long as the minions are there I’ll be in the theatre to see Despicable Me 3, 4, 5 and so on. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

Roast chicken for two not a lot of work for nutritional value Lifestyle - Just because you cook for one or two, don’t think the joy of a roast chicken dinner is just too much effort. The roasting times have been slashed in half, given choices of white or dark, baked essential veggies beside the chicken and seasoned all with the herbs that are adored in a classic stuffing. And, oh yes, you even wind up with crispy skin. Preparation Time: 15 minutes Cooking Time: 45 minutes Serves two

Ingredients Preparation instructions • 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter In small bowl, stir to(at room temperature) gether butter, sage, salt • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) each and savoury. Lift one

Sprinkle skin with more sage and salt. Place at end of large oiled rimmed baking sheet. Roast in 400°F (200°C) oven for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, cut potato into quarters, then oneinch (2.5 cm) pieces.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that time of year when many of us enjoy the thrill of the grill. Be a food safety grill master by following these four food safety strategies to ensure the food you serve is safe: Clean Wash hands after handling raw meats and before preparing salads etc, and eating Use clean dishes and utensils Wash fruits and vegetables thoroughly before cutting Chill Keep potentially hazardous foods cold (4oC or 40oF or below) until ready to serve or cook to prevent harmful bacteria from multiplying. Marinate meats in the refrigerator and discard marinade after use If using coolers, stock with sufficient clean ice packs Keep drinks in a separate cooler as this one is likely to be opened more often Cover and refrigerate leftovers with-in one hour Cook Undercooked meats can cause food-borne illness. Use a sanitized probe thermometer to check the internal temperature of cooked foods Cook ground chicken/chicken pieces and meat mixtures to 74oC(165oF), whole poultry to 82oC (180oF) ground meats and pork to 71oC (160oF), fish and seafood to 70oC (158oF) Beef/veal steaks and roasts can be cooked to your preferred doneness provided they have not been mechanically tenderized and the outside surface has been cooked Separate Be careful not to cross-contaminate ready to eat foods with raw foods Never use the same plate or utensils for raw and cooked food as meat juices contain harmful bacteria
