Accident claims life of Mississippi Mills woman



News – Highway 7 west of Carleton Place was closed for several hours last Thursday, July 25, after a fatal collision around 12:30 p.m. The crash involving three vehicles happened near Fergusons Falls Road in the Township of Lanark Highlands. A 27-year-old Mississippi Mills woman, Amanda Dubeau was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Lanark County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP). Another person, a 33-year-old male, a passenger in the rear seat, was taken by Ornge (formerly Ontario Air Ambulance) to The Ottawa Hospital with life-threatening injuries. Lanark County Ambulance Service transported two people with minor injuries to local hospitals. OPP technical traffic collision investigators and staff

911 service disruption caused by network card failure By KELLY KENT

News – It was a network card failure that caused several 911 calls to go unanswered the morning of July 5, according to Rick Hannah, emergency services coordinator for Lanark County. At a residents’ meeting held at the Clayton Community Hall July 24, Hannah spoke to a large crowd of concerned people about the events surrounding the failure of the 911 system. The morning of July 5, Carl Welk, a 70-year-old man, was doing volunteer yard work for Guthrie United Church when he suddenly collapsed. Beginning at 8:05 a.m., several calls were made to 911, but they never connected. Eventually, Merv Logan, a friend of Mississippi Mills fire chief Art Brown, managed to get through to the chief directly and explained what was going on.

Brown called the Mississippi Mills fire dispatch and, soon after, an ambulance was also dispatched. Help arrived approximately 15 to 20 minutes after Welk collapsed, but unfortunately, they were too late to save him. Members of the community were outraged and wanted answers. Hannah said he has been in contact with Bell Canada which operates the 911 system, to determine what happened. He relayed the information he had received from Bell during a conference call on July 23, although he admitted he was not an expert on the technical aspects of the system. He said that it was the Lanark County network card, which is operated by Bell Canada, that ultimately failed, causing the 911 calls to go unanswered. Hannah explained that a network card is a device that sorts phone call requests and sends

them to the appropriate destination. The card manages all phone calls made in the area and is not designated specifically for 911 calls. Therefore, any call made during the failure that was supposed to pass through the network card would have also been unsuccessful. After a 911 call goes through the network card, it is passed on to the Central Emergency Reporting Bureau (CERB), which is the telephone answering service for emergency calls. Here, the CERB will ask you what your emergency is and direct your call to the appropriate department: fire, ambulance or police. “The calls to the 911 system never reached the CERB,” said Hannah. “The calls never left Lanark County.” Hannah says that 25 per cent of the lines routed through that network card were affected, meaning that 75 per cent of the lines were working properly.

“If more people had started calling,” said Hannah, “then someone would have eventually gotten through one of the functional lines.” Bell has a backup system in place for this kind of emergency, said Hannah. If a call does not go through, or goes unanswered at CERB for more than 67 seconds an alarm goes off, notifying one of two staff who are watching the system 24/7. An alarm for the unanswered 911 calls alerted Bell to a problem, which they started fixing at 8:07 a.m., says Hannah – two minutes after the first call went unanswered at 8:05 a.m. The problem was rectified and all lines were returned to working order by 8:20 a.m. The service interruption lasted 15 minutes. Hannah noted that Bell has assured him that this is the first network card failure it has had in all of southern Ontario since 911 services were implemented

in the 1930s-1940s. Bell has indicated they are working on additional security measures to ensure that these types of things do not happen, but in the meantime, Hannah said that people should not lose faith in the 911 system. “The 911 system is a phone system and because of that it uses technology, and technology sometimes fails,” he stated. “Bell has assured me that these occurrences are rare and that they are working to create more security measures.” Hannah said that if 911 calls ever do fail again, the old emergency numbers are still in place and functional, although he stressed that 911 is still to be the priority number; the old numbers are only to be used in rare cases where 911 service is down.

to become an annual event that will rotate around the county. It aims to support more than 55 local businesses and six farmers’ markets, as well as developing a new economic development network for the county through partnership with the Ontario Tourism Culinary Alliance. “Beckwith Township is pleased to be the inaugural municipality for the Lanark County Harvest Festival,� said Beckwith reeve Richard Kidd. “It is a tribute to our strong rural and agricultural heritage, and our staff have been working very hard with partners to ensure the event is a huge success.� “We hope to create employment, build a customer base and encourage lots of visitors to come to Lanark County,� continued Dobson. “We have been recognized as a food destination, and want to build on this while raising awareness.� There are still spaces for vendors.

County receives assurances about 9-1-1 system cluding 9-1-1, and so the connection did not happen.� Hannah added there are several redundancies in the system, however, that allowed for the problem to be resolved quickly. “The first call has been identified as being made at 8:05 a.m., and by 8:06 a.m. an alarm was activated in the system that indicated a 9-1-1 call had gone unanswered. The alarm was received and acted upon at 8:07 a.m., which identified the first of the lines that was not functioning as designed. When the effected lines were identified, the process of rerouting the system away from those lines began. By 8:20 a.m. the effected lines had been isolated and calls began to process normally at the CERB.� Hannah said he has been assured no other calls were made during that time period. “The county, OPP and Bell work continuously to ensure methods and processes are in place to deal with these events,� he said. “In this case, the network switch failure was immediately detected and restoration activities were initiated and completed quickly.� Hannah noted that, over time, potential failure points in the 9-1-1 system have been identified and protocols developed to minimize service interruption when they occur. “Tests are conducted regularly to ensure the system functions as designed and contingency plans are annually reviewed with all 9-1-1 agencies to ensure restoration occurs quickly in the event of a technical problem,� he said.

Chief administrative officer/ treasurer Kurt Greaves said Lanark County has been using the 9-1-1 system since 2002. “This is the first disruption of service we have experienced.� Warden Bill Dobson (Montague reeve) said the county will continue to work with officials from Bell Canada and the OPP to ensure the 9-1-1 system remains reliable. “Public safety is our primary concern,� he stated. “The 9-1-1 system is standard across the majority of communities in North America due to its ease of use, and people should continue to use it.� Hannah added it is important for callers to stay on the line when they call 9-1-1 so the system can detect incoming calls and so that call answerers can collect the information they need in an emergency.

News – Lanark County officials have received more information about an isolated issue that occurred with the 9-1-1 system earlier this month, along with assurances that preventive protocols are in place. On July 5, 9-1-1 calls for an ambulance went unanswered in the Clayton area. A citizen then called the local (Mississippi Mills) fire chief, Art Brown, who contacted ambulance dispatch from his portable radio. Lanark County has a contract for 9-1-1 call-answering services with the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), who operate a Central Emergency Reporting Bureau (CERB) in North Bay. The service is provided in conjunction with Bell Canada. Emergency calls to 9-1-1 are answered at the CERB and then rerouted to the appropriate responding agencies, whether it is police, fire or ambulance. In a conference call last week, Lanark County Emergency Services Coordinator Rick Hannah said representatives from Bell 9-1-1 explained to him and the OPP CERB Team that the service interruption occurred when a network card in the telephone system failed. This resulted in six calls regarding this single incident not reaching the CERB, including five calls from one land line. “When a 9-1-1 call is made, the phone network system searches for an available line at the CERB to make a connection,� Hannah explained. “On July 5, a network failure affected several services, in-

Local teens learn about life as a police officer at Algonquin College News – Working on a crime scene investigation, treating a patient with two broken ankles and performing CPR was just a typical day for seven teenagers in Perth last week. They were part of the Algonquin College Policing and Public Safety Career Sampler program, hosted at the Perth campus. These local students signed up for a week-long session to get a glimpse of their potential dream job. From paramedic training to firefighting to police investigations, the teenagers had the opportunity to find out and ask questions about what it takes to work in these fields. Perth Fire Chief Steve Fournier and Fire Prevention Officer Peter Echlin opened the week’s events. They sat down with the students to talk about becoming a firefighter before heading outside to check out the fire gear and truck. “The fire presentation was the perfect way to start off the week,” says Tiffany Hart, Career Sampler Team Lead. “The students were immediately engaged and had fun learning about the gear and stand on the truck while controlling the water hose. Right from the start, the camp was engaging and the students were having a good time.” For the remainder of the week, students had the opportunity to meet with police officers, paramedics and a career counselor to talk about these career opportunities. Students also spent most of the week following the guide Ontario Provincial Police Inspector Gerry Salisbury and Con-

I am glad I learned the opportunity existed here in Perth at Algonquin College and hope she can experience another session in the future. Good work by everyone involved!” The week ended with a graduation ceremony for the participants, who learned earlier that week how to march, which they did when they entered the ceremony with a bagpiper leading the way. Students can have the chance to take another future career sampler session. Algonquin College will be hosting two ‘Get Inspired About Helping Others’ career samplers in Smiths Falls and Carleton Place in August. Participants can learn about working as an early childhood educator, child and youth worker, social service worker, personal support worker and more. The last day for these camps will transform into a day about taking care of themselves. To learn more about these career samplers, visit the Perth Campus website at perth.

Alzheimer Society unveils new adult day program site, satellite office in Smiths Falls Services executive director Peter McKenna, said it’s important for all organizations under one roof to work together. “I’m really pleased to be partnering with Louise and with this (program) the whole world is coming much closer together,” he remarked during the July 16 open house. “We have Meals on Wheels programs, respite care, the Alzheimer Society adult day program, physicians and nurse practitioners as well as diabetes and education here. We’re all working together to try and make your life a whole lot easier.”


News – More local clients will now be able to access the services of the Alzheimer Society of Lanark County with the recent opening of its new adult day program site and satellite office in Smiths Falls. Among clients, supporters and South East Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) representatives, Alzheimer Society staff, with the help of Smiths Falls mayor Dennis Staples, cut the ribbon to officially open the new space during an open house July 16. Located within at 2 Gould St. (former Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute), the move allows the society to serve more clients within its adult day program and enhance it with support groups and education as well. Alzheimer Society of Lanark County executive director Louise Noble said the program had been operating in the new space since April, but the day was a “very happy” one. “With this move we have increased the number of clients served at our adult day program...,” she noted, stating that the day program provides a social aspect to those suffering with dementia. “They can come here and do exercise, sometimes have music, make arts and crafts or take day trips.” Noble stressed how much a difference the larger location would have on its clients. “It’s about enhancing their lives through interaction that they (clients) don’t just get at home and it gives the caregivers a day of respite. Really that’s what the program is all about.” The program was previously housed in the Lamplighter’s building at 30 Victoria Avenue for three years, but according to Melinda Coleman, client service manager of the society, that space was cramped and inaccessible to seniors. Alzheimer Society board president Don McDiarmid applauded the efforts of staff to make the program’s relocation a reality. “The board is very proud of Louise and her staff for bringing us along so year by year we’re more effective in serving our clientele,” he stated. “We wouldn’t likely be here if we didn’t have that quality of staff.” In addition to the adult day program, the location has become a satellite office for the society, which will

complement its head office in Perth. It will be open each Monday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. The move was made possible through $147,000 in funding from the South East LHIN. An original sum of $100,000 was announced in November 2012 and an additional $47,000 committed in 2013 in order to increase the capacity of the program. “The new site for the adult day program in Smiths Falls demonstrates the South East LHIN’s commitment to increasing ease of access to community support services for all patients and their caregivers in the South East region,” stated South East LHIN chief executive officer Paul Huras in a press

release issued by the LHIN. “The Smiths Falls service expansion will provide seniors and their families with increased access to local day programs and supports in Lanark County,” added Lanark-FrontenacLennox and Addington MPP Randy Hillier, in the same release. “The new adult day program and satellite office will no doubt further enhance upon the good work already being provided by the Alzheimer Society of Lanark County.” John Gerretsen, MPP for Kingston and The Islands, said initiatives such as enhancing the Alzheimer Society’s adult day program, is allowing seniors to keep their independence.

“The adult day program and satellite office in Smiths Falls is a service expansion which will bring muchneeded programming to the seniors of Smiths Falls and their families,” he stated in the LHIN release. “By improving access to day programs, the LHIN and the Alzheimer Society of Lanark County are putting in place supports to keep seniors in their homes longer.” With the addition of the Alzheimer Society in the Gould St. building, it is becoming a health services hub, enhancing Rideau Community Health Services and Community Home Support Lanark County, also located there.

Clients’ reaction Noble said having a satellite office in Smiths Falls was set up for the ease of clients and to cut down on transportation. “We’re very excited about this. We see all the potential and we’re going to be open one day a week now but there is much potential down the road,” she said. Clients are excited about the move as well. Smiths Falls resident Helen Trimm, who helped cut the ribbon July 16, is a regular user of the society’s adult day program. She credits it with helping her become more social. “I started coming to it and ever since, I haven’t wanted to stop coming. I love it here,” she noted. “The people are good, I like the socializing and music. It’s just happy.” A seasoned bingo player, Trimm said the environment is relaxed and she feels like she’s among family when there. Her daughter and caregiver, Barbara Dodd, sees the change in her mother and praised the kindness of Alzheimer Society staff. “The staff are out of this world. It’s like a community and the staff are very involved with their clients. They don’t just treat them like clients, but like family,” she said, noting the minimal costs of the program make it affordable to more people. “I don’t know what she (Trimm) would be doing if she didn’t have this to go to,” Dodd continued. “That social interaction is so important. I can’t say enough about how great the program is.” For more information on the Alzheimer Society of Lanark County, its programs and services, visit their website at or call 1-800-511-1911.

Ottawa actor drives comedy in final week of Classic Theatre comedy

In the Neil Simon comedy The Star-Spangled Girl, Richard Gélinas, left, and Trevor Pease are longtime friends whose lives are interrupted by a conservative southern belle, Sophie Rauchsmeyer (played by Kate R0012224644_0725

Arts – Ottawa’s Richard Gélinas is one of the most recognized actors in the national capital theatre scene. Currently starring as the love-struck, hormonally challenged Norman Cornell in the Classic Theatre Festival production of Neil Simon’s comedy The Star-Spangled Girl (which closes Aug. 4), Gélinas is a bundle of energy whose stage moves and comic timing are reminiscent of the likes of Jimmy Cagney and Robin Williams. Like those two legendary performers, Gélinas is a hard-working professional performer who has undertaken significant training in the art of movement, physicality, breath control, and audience interaction, all of which have served him well in the 16 years since he graduated from Concordia University’s theatre training program. They also undergird his performance in The Star-Spangled Girl, whether he is engaged in a kung fu battle or a mop-versus-ukelele fight with his roommate Andy (played by Trevor Pease), or his incessant prancing as he bounces around the stage trying to woo the title character, Sophie Rauchsmeyer. Playing a character like Norman, Gélinas says, is an interesting challenge, and while he can relate to the young man “who loses his mind over a girl, there’s also a lot of changes he goes through over the course of the play, and he’s not always the fool. I like the way he grows up through the process.” Asked how he maintains such a powerful presence on stage for 7 shows per week, Gélinas credits the rehearsal process of Classic Theatre Festival director Laurel Smith. “It’s a very good process, we were all very much on the same page, and we built a very strong foundation, so when I arrive at the theatre to get into my role, it’s like putting on a wellmade suit. As actors we often do a kind of self-hypnosis. We have to believe we are these two writers in 1966 San Francisco so the audience will believe it. It’s kind of like pulling down a filter.” Gélinas has performed with numerous Ottawa theatres, including the Company of Fools (whose approach he paraphrases as “mixing up Shakespeare and the Muppets in a blender, and then you throw in a little with Monty Python”), as well as SevenThirty Productions, in which he has carried multi-character roles in shows including The 39 Steps and Stones in His Pockets.

Hillier insulting intelligence of constituents, says reader DEAR EDITOR: I was shocked to read the outrageous claims against Hydro One by our local MPP, Randy Hillier, published as a letter to the editor in last week’s (July 18) EMC. To begin with, he claims that “there is no way for anyone to check” the reading on their new electricity meter – the Smart Meter. Well, most of us have these meters and have seen the clear digital display. It is actually much easier to read than the old meters with the rotating dials. Remember those? Some of the dials rotated forward and others backwards, making it a real challenge to figure out which numbers the dials were pointing towards. With the new meters, by comparison, you simply go out and write down the numbers. If you wanted to know how much electricity you used between any two dates and times, for example,

you simply subtract the first reading from the second one. Most of us learned subtraction in grade school, Mr. Hillier. Mr. Hillier’s rambling letter continues with the claim that “Hydro One has shut down our low-cost electricity generators such as hydro and nuclear.” This statement is obviously untrue. What is true is that we have few opportunities to expand hydroelectric generation in this province. Nevertheless, most people have heard about the “Big Dig” tunnel under the city of Niagara Falls – one example of how Hydro One is working hard to find more clean and sustainable electricity for the citizens of Ontario. Why couldn’t Mr. Hillier acknowledge this major engineering achievement? See LETTER page 10


Move over for emergency vehicles Editorial – Long weekends are all about lazing by the pool or spending quality time at the cottage, but don’t be in a rush to get to your destination this Civic Holiday long weekend. The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) will once again be out in full force over this long weekend, targeting drivers who fail to wear seatbelts, are impaired or distracted, and for those who fail to move to the side of the road for emergency vehicles. Five people died over the 2012 Civic Holiday long weekend and OPP want to ensure those numbers aren’t repeated or increased. Boat patrol will also be done and police will be watching for those showing a disregard for public safety. The OPP recently ramped up its emergency responder campaign in response to Ontario’s Move Over law, which states that all motorists encountering a police, fire or ambulance vehicle (in the same direction of travel) with lights flashing, must pull over to the side of the road if it can be done safely. While this law is becoming more widely publicized and enforced, according to OPP Deputy Commissioner Larry Beechey, it isn’t new. It was actually introduced 10 years ago in 2003. In fact, he said that since 1989 five OPP officers have lost their lives while doing their jobs after being hit by approaching vehicles on the side of the road. That grace period to let motorists off with a warning is now over, say the OPP and those in violation of it could receive between a $400 to $1,200 fine and three demerit points, if convicted. Judging by those numbers, it’s something police want motorists to take very seriously.

Thunderstorm proved two things – how dangerous they could be and how generous people were Lifestyle – Thunderstorms in the country terrified Mother. Sadly, that fear was passed on to me. We crouched in corners, but never on an outside wall, and always away from the telephone that hung on the kitchen wall. If it was a really horrific storm, I often took to hiding under a bed. Storms that struck through the night were especially frightening. The lightning lit up the entire countryside, and in the blackness of the night, rolling thunder roared, sounding like a gigantic train careening through our fields. It was not unusual for Mother to get all of us children out of our beds in the dead of night at the first sound of thunder or a flash of lightning. Father of course, slept through the entire storm. Seeing Mother sitting on a chair, away from any window, the coal oil lamp lit on the bake table by the back door, did little to put my mind at ease. She sat with her purse clutched tightly in her arms, ready to make a dash outside should our old log house be struck by lightning. Where we would run to, I had no idea! The very thought of going outside

into the raging storm was almost as frightening as shaking like a leaf inside, waiting for what I was sure was a fiery end to our lives. Mother constantly compared country storms with those she remembered from New York. With the heavy sounds of the city, storms there passed almost unnoticed. And the day lightning hit the pole that held our clothesline and followed it to the end pole, Mother nearly collapsed. My sister Audrey, whom I thought took storms much too lightly, said we should be grateful that the clothesline was free standing and not attached to the corner of the house! I knew what she meant. And then one summer day, when we had gone through a particularly long dry spell, the sky in the west darkened and far off in the distance we could hear the rumble of thunder. We had finished our noon meal, and by the time we had redded up the kitchen, the storm was upon us. Father said he would just sit a spell. “No use going out in that rain,” he said, as he settled down in the rocking chair with Vice President & Regional Publisher Mike Mount 613-283-3182, ext. 104

My brothers had absolutely no fear in a storm. In fact, it wasn’t unusual for them to stand at the kitchen window and watch the lightning streak out of the black clouds.

to hover right overhead for a very long time. I prayed it would soon go away, and follow the Bonnechere to another part of the valley. “Oh my God,” Emerson yelled. Everett yelled for Father to come quickly to the window looking out towards the west hill. Earl, the most timid of the three began to cry. I knew something terrible had happened. Father jumped from the rocker and ran to the west window; cautiously, Mother, Audrey and I followed. “The lightning,” Emerson stammered. “It hit the big maple on the hill,” Everett said. And underneath the tree, where 11 of our Holstein cows had gone for shelter, we saw what had happened. They looked like they had laid themselves down to rest in the summer heat. But I knew without asking what had happened. The cows were dead… killed by a lightning bolt that had struck the maple. I saw the stark horror on Father’s face, and Mother’s tear streaked cheeks, and I knew without a doubt that we would never recover the loss.

What I saw next, once the storm had blown itself out, was Father and the brothers, walking behind the team of horses, pulling the double whiffle tree and heading to the west hill. One by one the dead Holsteins were dragged to the gravel pit and buried. The news of our loss spread quickly through the community of Northcote. Father said it could have been worse. Our young heifers were in the enclosure close to the barn, and two cows, for their own reasons had decided to stay at the bottom of the hill. And as always happened when tragedy struck in our farm community, one by one, neighbours responded. I saw them walking down our long lane leading a heifer or a cow over to our farm almost completely replacing our loss with a simple shake of a hand and a few words. That’s how things were done in the ‘30s. As well as our terrible loss, the lightning strike only confirmed in Mother’s mind that storms were not to be taken lightly, but treated as the real danger they could be, and sadly sometimes were. • 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.

Sharon Lightning blast Elkland in final to win sixth Gil Read memorial tourney Sports – Sharon Lake Simcoe Lightning made sure their first appearance at the Gil Read Memorial Fastpitch Tournament in Carp was a memorable one. Lightning, the defending champions of the Oshawa City and District Fastball League, completed an undefeated run at the sixth annual competition with an 11-4 trouncing of Elkland Thunderbellys in the tournament final played Sunday at Carp Fairgrounds. Sharon is located north of Newmarket in the Greater Toronto Area. Thunderbellys, who were making their second straight appearance in the Carp tournament, are based in the small village of Elkland in north-central Pennsylvania. Sharon, who topped the final standings with five wins and a tie in six games, took home $1,800 in prize money. Runners-up Elkland, who were edged by Toronto Gators, the eventual tournament winners in the semi-finals of last year’s Carp venture, claims $700. Despite the loss in the title game Thunderbellys were an impressive 5-1 in the event. Donnacona Blue Sox, from the Quebec City area and Kars Aces, the three-time defending champions of the Greater Ottawa Fastball League (GOFL) were semi-finalists. Blue Sox finished the tourney with a 3-2 mark while Kars went 2-2-1. Both clubs earned $250 shares of the prize pot. In their semi-final encounter Lightning left it late before earning their place in Sunday’s championship game. Sharon trailed Donnacona 3-1 going to the bottom of the seventh and final inning of their semifinal showdown. But a walk-off double by Todd Hamblin chased home the tying and winning runs. Gregg Garrity also had a crucial run batted in for the winners in their come-from-behind triumph. Brad Worsley, in relief of Garrity, was the winning pitcher. Patrice Leclerc was the hard luck loser for Blue Sox. In the final the teams were

tied 4-4 in the fourth inning. But Lake Simcoe finally wore out Thunderbellys’ pitching, scoring seven unanswered runs in the late going. Aaron Trude of Sharon was named the most valuable player in the championship contest. Garrity was the winning pitcher with relief help from Worsley. An overworked Josh Johnson absorbed the loss on the hill for the Pennsylvania side. Hours earlier Johnson was the hero of the moment for Elkland, turning in a stellar pitching performance in his team’s tight 2-1 semi-final victory over Kars. Chris Read, son of the late Gil Read, and his cousin Al Read, who plays for Carp I4C Victory, are the chief organizers of the annual venture. Monday morning Chris Read expressed thanks to everyone who supported the sixth tournament. “We had the best turnout ever,” he says, adding that the Friday night crowd and sales was the best Friday in tournament history, doubling anything accomplished in the past. “There were at least 300 in the stands for the final Sunday. It was fantastic,” Read states. “We had 12 very competitive teams. The out-of-town teams all told us they want to come back next year, so obviously we are pleased about that.” Read adds the home run derby Sunday was also a major success with a large contingent of fans on hand to watch. “Everyone – the teams and the fans – comes out to assist a worthwhile cause,” he observes. All proceeds from the tournament goes to the Gil Read Memorial Foundation which assists underprivileged youngsters who wish to play sports but who would not otherwise have the funds necessary to take part. The top area team in the sixth annual tournament was Fitzroy Harbour West Carleton Electric of GOFL. They finished the three-day event in fifth place with a 2-2-1 mark. Electric were eliminated at the quarterfinal

stage, losing 6-1 to Kars. Mitch Hardy of Aces spun a nifty two-hitter in Sunday morning’s match-up. Besides Kars and Fitzroy Harbour there were five other GOFL clubs involved in the Carp showdown. Host Carp I4C Victory was joined by Micksburg Twins, from the Upper Ottawa Valley, along with Stittsville 56ers, Manotick Taylor’s Blitz and Barrhaven Broadway Blues all from suburban Ottawa. Also in Sunday’s quarterfinals it was Sharon downing Napanee Junior Express 5-1 while Elkland got past Stittsville 5-3 and Donnacona doubled Micksburg 4-2. Busy Saturday Thunderbellys had a perfect Saturday to finish atop the eightteam playoff pool. The Pennsylvania side opened the day with a neat 5-0 triumph over another pre-tournament favourite, Donnacona. They followed that up with yet another shutout victory, blitzing Manotick 7-0. Johnson toed the rubber in both contests and rang up back-to-back shutouts. Thunderbellys topped the field by edging Stittsville 2-1 in an early evening showdown. A total of 14 games were played Saturday. Sharon claimed second seed in the playoff group by winning a pair of one-sided tilts and then tying Kars 3-3. In their first game Saturday morning the Lake Simcoe side blasted Napanee Senior Express 10-0. In their second outing, late in the afternoon, Lightning again hit double figures in an easy 10-3 jaunt against Barrhaven. Saturday night they had to settle for a 3-3 tie with Kars. In the round-robin games which were deadlocked after seven innings finished as ties with each team awarded a single point in the standings. Fitzroy Harbour concluded the round-robin in third position, posting two wins and tying Micksburg 5-5 in a night game Saturday. Earlier in the day Electric zapped local favourites Carp

7-0 as Victory failed to score for a second consecutive game. Donnacona grabbed fourth place in the playoff round with a 2-1 mark. After losing their first game to Elkland they rebounded with an 8-5 win over Stittsville in a noon hour clash Saturday. In a night game Blue Sox blasted Manotick 12-2. Micksburg grabbed fifth spot in the playoffs with a win and a pair of ties. Following a big win Friday they ended their morning start Saturday in a 3-3 tie with Napanee Junior Express. Their night game with Fitzroy also finished deadlocked. Perennial GOFL champion Kars was sixth following the round-robin with their 1-1-1 mark. Aces were edged 5-4 by Napanee Seniors Saturday evening. The final two playoff places went to Napanee Juniors and Stittsville. Junior Express was 1-1-1 following play Saturday. Their round-robin victory was an 8-1 whitewashing of hapless Carp who went 0-3 and managed just one run in three tournament contests. The 56ers made the quarterfinal mix despite dropping two of three round robin games. Stittsville won Friday before falling to Donnacona and Elkland in a very tough B Pool. Carp, Manotick, Barrhaven and Napanee Seniors were the four teams eliminated follow-

OPP works to improve awareness, reduce stigma about mental health issues and the workplace News – The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) has made significant progress in trying to mitigate the impact of operational stress injuries (OSI) on its workforce, detailing some of its recent initiatives in its third quarterly report to the Office of the Ontario Ombudsman. The OPP has officially joined the ‘Not Myself Today at Work’ national campaign developed by Partners for Mental Health (PMH). “By joining with PMH, the OPP is furthering awareness of mental health issues and reducing the stigma surrounding mental illness. Planning for the OPP’s province-wide ‘Not Myself Day at Work’ event is underway for the fall of 2013,”

says Commissioner Chris Lewis. Lewis and Ontario Provincial Police Association president Jim Christie recently jointly announced the launch of the OSI Working Group email address where members (current and former) and their families are encouraged to confidentially contact the working group to share their thoughts and experiences, both positive and negative, on issues associated with OSI in the workplace. The OPP recently mailed correspondence to the residences of all OPP members on a longer-term leave from the workplace, encouraging them to review the Ombudsman’s report ‘In the Line of Duty:

Investigation into how the Ontario Provincial Police and the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services have addressed operational stress injuries affecting police officers’. The letter also encourages these members to review the OPP’s quarterly reports to the Ombudsman (available on opp. ca) and reminds them of the continuing supports available to them while on leave through the internal and external Employee Assistance Program services. A number of other initiatives to address this issue were outlined in the OPP’s first two reports to the Ombudsman. Work on this initiative continues. THE EMC - 9 - Thursday, August 1, 2013

ing completion of round-robin play Saturday night. Carp and Manotick went winless while Blues and Napanee Seniors each managed one victory. Barrhaven triumphed over the Seniors 5-4 early Saturday afternoon while the Express edged Kars by the same score in an evening clash. No hitter Friday The highlight of opening night action on Friday was the pitching gem crafted by Micksburg hurler Corey Costello. He threw a no hitter against host Carp, leading the Twins to a 6-0 triumph in their tournament opener. Costello got plenty of run support, mainly via the long ball. Teammate Riley Hennessey blasted a pair of home runs while Joran Graham added a solo shot. Local fans did have a little to cheer about Friday however. Fitzroy rolled over Napanee Junior Express 7-3 thanks to a seven run explosion in the fourth inning. Napanee had been leading 3-0 until the wheels fell off. Andy Barber claimed the mound triumph. In the opening games of the competition, early Friday evening, Stittsville and Kars were winners. The 56ers edged GOFL league rival Manotick 1-0 with Darren Featherstone doing all of the damage. Featherstone was the winning pitcher and he accounted for the game’s only run with a solo homer.

Kars was paced by veteran Dan Jessiman who homered, doubled and drove in five runs. This marked the fourth year the tournament was held at Carp and for a third straight year the weather cooperated. None of the games were delayed despite a few minor showers Sunday. Until 2010 the competition was played at Carlington Park in west-central Ottawa. But facility rental costs skyrocketed in the city proper, prompting the organizing committee to seek another venue. They settled on Carp Fairgrounds, hoping to attract more fans and increase revenues. The financial results have improved every year since the event was relocated to West Carleton. The tournament’s namesake, the late Gil Read, led three men’s teams to the Canadian championships in 1993, 1995 and again in 1999. He also coached Team Ontario to gold medals at the 1997, 2001 and 2005 Canada Summer Games.

Tay Valley reader in agreement with Hillier’s Hydro One assessment for Ontario Hydro any time soon. US President Obama has been playing the same game south of the border. Solyndra is only the highest-profile of 33 (and counting) failed or failing companies backed by Obama’s “green� initiatives. As Randy Hillier said, “the only way the Liberals could pay for their plan to pick winners, was by most everyone else becoming losers.� Obama’s fiascoes, not to mention our own history (remember Nortel?), show that governments’ ability to pick winners is a joke. Between the beautiful local countryside being pock marked with ugly solar panels, and wind turbines killing half a million birds a year (in the US alone!), it is time for some rational and fact-based discussion of the real costs (financial and environmental) of so-called “green� energy. David Colter Tay Valley

Reader disputes letter writer’s claims DEAR EDITOR The letter to the editor (July 25) from Wolfe Erlichman must surely have been a joke. Everything he said was totally wrong, so it must have been a joke. “Our children will thank us for doing the right thing.� I wonder how pleased they will be.

LETTER From page 8

As far as nuclear power is concerned, significant amounts of money have had to be spent on essential refurbishing of many of our reactor units. In addition, everyone can see the debt-retirement charge on our electricity bills – a monthly reminder of the huge cost overruns still haunting us from the original build-out of our nuclear-power stations. Hence, it is hardly accurate for Mr. Hillier to throw nuclear into the category of “low-cost.� Mr. Hillier is also claiming that we are being “soaked� on our electricity bills by renewable-energy generators, such as wind and solar. Again, the facts are to the contrary. A study by Navigant Consulting Ltd., reported last April in the Toronto Star, showed that the electricity portion of our bills is only about eight cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh), which is less than half of the total bill. The rest of the bill is made up of delivery and regulatory charges, plus the debt-retirement charge mentioned above. Even within the electricity

Let’s see. We’re paying something in the order of $9 billion for the green energy program so far. It has connected thousands of mini producers all over the province which have to be connected to the power grid mostly from locations far from and in opposition to the flow from the big producers.

We are also paying 80 cents per KWH when the going rate is six cents a KWH. But, never mind that. During our latest heat wave, the windmills provided .01 per cent of the energy needed. To provide Mr. Erlichman’s utopia of 100 per cent green energy then would cost trillions of dollars.

Assuming that Canada’s population grows to 40 million by the time our thankful descendents will then owe – each and every person – about 225 million. I wonder how pleased they will be.

portion of the bill, Navigant showed that five out of the eight cents was due to a socalled global adjustment and only 17 per cent of that was due to renewables. The bulk of the global adjustment is for nuclear power (42 per cent) and natural-gas fired generation (26 per cent). In short, the global adjustment for renewables – all the hydro, wind, and solar in the province – adds less than one cent to our electricity costs. In contrast, the nuclear refurbishment is costing over two cents per kWh. Again, it seems that Mr. Hillier is twisting the facts. Mr. Hillier also seems to be forgetting the local people in every community in this province who are Hydro One employees. These people are working hard for us, keeping the lights on despite more frequent and more severe storms. Does Mr. Hillier begrudge them an extra cent on the “delivery� side of our electricity bills for all this extra work? From these examples and many other outrageous claims in Mr. Hillier’s letter, it seems

clear that he does not have a good grasp on this important file. While his letter is obsessive about costs, there is no mention of the most important factors for our electricity system, which are safety and reliability of supply. Think of the many disasters and failing infrastructure – in Canada and elsewhere – that we hear about almost daily. Does he not understand the need for regularly upgrading our electricity infrastructure to avoid the meltdowns, explosions, blackouts and spills that are happening elsewhere? It also seems clear that Mr. Hillier is seriously underestimating the constituents in this

riding. Not only is he underestimating our intelligence, he is also underestimating our commitment to a clean and sustainable electricity supply, which can only be achieved through renewables. Thoughtful people understand that you don’t get something for nothing and that quality of life is not measured solely in cents per kWh. Preservation of our clean air and water and what still remains of our natural environment: these things do come with some costs...and they are worth every penny of it.







primarily wind and solar resources. The share associated with renewables has been increasing significantly and is expected to continue to do so.� The end result is exactly as Mr. Hillier explained: market prices for electricity are dropping and Ontario rates are going up and will continue to do so as long as we are signed on to this boondoggle. I agree with Mr. Erlichman that not subsidizing new nuclear facilities is good news. Solar, wind and other “renewable� sources should also not be subsidized. Then we would see the true cost of power generation. The government has a role in regulating, but not controlling energy production, marketing and consumption. As so perfectly illustrated by the former Ontario Hydro, government monopolies are rife with waste, corruption and patronage. Our children and grandchildren will not thank us for the Green Energy Act. I won’t be thanking my parents and grandparents

bers are correct but do not tell the full story. The reason for these increases is government price setting. Hydro One buys most of its energy on contract. Another arm of the Ontario government, Ontario Power Generation (OPG), sets the prices paid to the nuclear facilities managed by (you guessed it!) OPG. What has happened is that market prices have gone down (due mainly to an increased supply of inexpensive nuclear energy!) and OPG increased the regulated price on nuclear-generated electricity. This difference is added to another Ontario government wonder, the global adjustment. This “adjustment� is passed on to Ontario ratepayers. (Please see monitoring report on the IESO-Administered Electricity Markets, May 2011 – October 2011), the latest such report to make comparisons among energy sources.) Quoting the same report, “six per cent [of the global adjustment] is attributable to renewable assets,

DEAR EDITOR I wholeheartedly agree with our MPP Randy Hillier’s assessment of Hydro One and the Ontario government’s politically-motivated “Green Energy Act� (letter to the editor – July 18. This debacle has, and will continue to, cost the ratepayers of Ontario. There’s no way around it; Hydro One is paying exorbitant subsidies (more than 80 cents per kilowatt hour (kWh) in some cases) to “renewable� energy producers. This electricity is, in turn, being sold for less than a dime per kWh. The surplus electricity – and there is plenty – is being sold to other jurisdictions for even less. The July 26 letter from Wolfe Erlichman is a mix of misinformation and wishful thinking.

The current annual fee for the service, which includes the City of Brockville and the Town of Prescott, is $52,000. The 9-1-1 service cost to the counties is $38,500 annually with Brockville and Prescott being invoiced a total of $13,500. The counties have contracted the OPP for two consecutive three-year terms and fees have not increased over that time, a report to council stated. Counties injecting $400,000 into parkway bike path Counties council has approved a contribution of $400,000 for the second phase of the 1000 Islands Parkway Recreational Trail revitalization project. The contribution will be financed over a two-year period and is subject to another $600,000 being raised for the project’s completion. Work on the path by the St. Lawrence Parks Commission includes widening it to an accessible three metres and resurfacing. Federal and provincial funds of just under $1-million were used to complete 17.4-kilometres of the 36-kilometre path. The second phase will revitalize the remaining 18.6-kilometres of the trail. The total cost to complete the project is $1-million with partnerships forming a

vital funding component. A counties governance and finance committee report noted revitalizing the trail has economic spin-offs with visiting cyclists. It also provides a connection to nature and the waterfront and fulfills gas tax requirements. Trail systems were also identified as a priority in the Counties Integrated Community Sustainability Plan (ICSP). Emergency service hours reallocated The joint services committee has authorized Leeds Grenville Emergency Medical Services (EMS) to reallocate service hours between ambulance stations in Spencerville and Brockville to answer growing demand. The Spencerville station’s new hours of operation will be Monday to Friday from noon to 8 p.m. Previously Spencerville station’s hours of operation were from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week. Brockville’s Station 1 will now operate a second vehicle seven days a week from Sunday to Saturday 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. An EMS service delivery review completed last year found a shortfall in ambulance coverage in the Brockville catchment area, which includes the townships of Front of Yonge, Elizabethtown-Kitley and Athens. Ambulance calls in this catchment area rose by four per cent from 2011 to 2012. The reallocation, with a start time to be announced, will assist with the increased volume, will provide support to meet the response time standard and will keep ambulances in their primary area of cover-

Social housing units to be sold The joint services committee instructed staff to apply for consent from the Ontario Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing (MMAH) to sell six detached family units in the Town of Prescott previously used for social housing. Ministerial consent is required under the Housing Services Act 2011. The homes are located on Roberta Crescent, Victory Road, Boundary Street and Churchill Road. All proceeds from the sale of these homes will be reinvested in the regeneration of public housing in Leeds and Grenville. The service level of the six units will be paused for up to a five-year period to allow Leeds Grenville to meet the increased demand for senior and older-adult housing. Upcoming meetings Committee of the Whole on Sept. 3; joint services committee on Sept. 4 and Sept. 18; and counties council on Sept. 19. The Committee of the Whole structure replaces governance and finance and public works committees and begins in September as a pilot project. All meetings begin at 9 a.m. in the council chambers, 25 Central Avenue West, Brockville, unless otherwise noted. Please note: Delegations are heard at committee meetings. Submitted by the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville.

Elizabethtown-Kitley cultural mapping project begins News – The Heritage Elizabethtown-Kitley Committee is pleased to announce that it has begun a cultural mapping project of the municipality. Made possible by a provincial grant from the Creative Communities Prosperity Fund (CCPF) and support from the township, the project will help identify and map the community’s cultural assets for the purpose of building community, attracting visitors and encouraging economic opportunities in the area. The funding has enabled the committee to hire Lynne Clifford-Ward for six months to lead the cultural mapping project and they consider it a positive step into the township’s future. Culture can be described as “who we are and what we do.� Cultural mapping is a systematic process of identifying the community’s cultural resources and strengths. A community’s cultural vitality enhances the quality of life and quality of place and is one of

the four pillars of sustainability which includes environmental sustainability, economic prosperity and social equity. Cultural resources can be divided into six different themes, including cultural heritage; natural heritage; community cultural organizations; cultural spaces and facilities; creative cultural industries, and festivals and events. (For a more comprehensive list, please refer to the brochure or online.) Tracy Gayda, chairperson, and the Heritage ElizabethtownKitley Committee, asks the community’s help with this project by answering the fundamental question: what makes your neighbourhood and township a great place to live? Respondents’ information can be provided online, by email, by post and/or by attending workshops. (The time and locations of workshops will be announced soon.) Once the information is gathered, it will be assembled into a cultural inventory, plotted onto


age. This is a pilot project and will be re-evaluated on an ongoing basis.

a Township map and made available to the public in early 2014. The Heritage ElizabethtownKitley Committee looks forward to hearing from you and values your contribution to this community building project. This information, once compiled, will help locate and describe the township’s cultural assets and contribute to making ElizabethtownKitley a great place to live and work, now and in the future. The cultural mapping form is available on the township website ( Your e-lists can be sent to, with “Cultural Map List� as the subject line. Brochures can be picked up at township offices in New Dublin or Toledo, and other public locations. Please mail your completed form to 6544 New Dublin Road, RR 2, Addison, ON K0E 1AO and mark “Cultural Map List�. Submitted by the Township of Elizabethtown-Kitley.

The Smiths Falls Community Theatre Presents


A Musical

a n n a y l l o

Script, Music & Lyrics by A.J. Harbison and Wayne Robert Scott Directed by Lynda Daniluk

Pollyanna’s cold and demanding Aunt Polly is not used to the kind of misadventures that Pollyanna gets into -- including her odd way of befriending total strangers with her infectious smile. Even when faced with adversity, Pollyannna has a secret weapon: a special legacy left to her by her father. Soon the entire town is playing an unusual game that Pollyanna lives by. Inspired by the classic best selling 1913 novel by Eleanor Porter, this musical features rag time tunes and a patriotic medley, taking audiences back to this charming period in America’s history.

Come and enjoy this heart-warming performance in the air-conditioned comfort of the Station Theatre 53 Victoria Avenue, Smiths Falls

THE EMC - 19 - Thursday, August 1, 2013


Connected to your community

Detroitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decline should be put into perspective culminated in the embarrassment of bankruptcy. Not all is lost however. This week Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m adding my voice to the few in the media who have come to the defence of what was once among the richest, most successful cities on the continent. My wife Kathleen and I both have family in Michigan, including in Detroit. We know the city well. I have a cousin who lives in an old neighbourhood, north of downtown. Gary Hardy readily admits his is one of the few white faces on the street. But he gets along with his black neighbours, he staunchly defends his hometown and he refuses to buckle under and join the race to the suburbs. Garyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father, my motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Uncle Jack, immigrated to Canada from England just before World War I. In the late 1920s he joined the rush of people who flooded into Detroit to take advantage of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prosperity, built on the success of the automobile industry and in particular Henry Fordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s famous Model T. Uncle Jack worked at Fordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s massive River Rouge plant, then the largest factory complex in the world. He married a Windsor (Ontario) girl. Detroit and Windsor are twin cities. In fact Windsor has the distinction of being the only major Canadian city that lies south of the United States. Good times Jack Hardy became an American citizen. He served in the United States Army during the Second World War. After the war Detroit enjoyed more affluence as the auto industry boomed right into the 1950s and beyond. Tens of thousands of blacks migrated north to what was known world-wide as â&#x20AC;&#x153;the Motor City,â&#x20AC;? seeking jobs on the assembly lines and a better life. Detroitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population

Reflections JEFF MAGUIRE

peaked at nearly two million. The community once had the highest rate of home ownership of any American city. In 1959 Berry Gordy Jr. founded Motown Records. Detroit became the home of the famous â&#x20AC;&#x153;Motown Soundâ&#x20AC;? created by artists such as the Miracles, Diana Ross and the Supremes, the Four Tops and yes, the Jackson Five! The name â&#x20AC;&#x153;Motownâ&#x20AC;? threatened to topple the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s familiar Motor City moniker. It was in part the decline of the automobile industry that ultimately led to the point Detroit reached two weeks ago. The car companies shifted operations to the suburbs or, in an effort to escape the influence of Detroitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s powerful unions, moved operations to the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sunbelt states or overseas. Then came the dominance of Japanese imports and the rise of other manufacturers worldwide. Still, Detroitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plunge to despair canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be blamed on the loss of the auto industry or Motownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shift to California. Poor race relations, culminating in the deadly and destructive riots in the summer of 1967 along with a string of questionable local governments (and individual politicians) simply exacerbated the so-called â&#x20AC;&#x153;White Flightâ&#x20AC;? and hastened the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decline. In the 1970s Detroit was best known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;the Murder Capital of the USâ&#x20AC;? a stigma it continues to carry along with many other big cities including Chicago and Miami. In the 1980s it also became the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Arson Capitalâ&#x20AC;? of the country. Deliberately

set fires continue to plague Detroit. My late maternal grandmother, who lived in nearby Chatham, Ontario (Chatham is the hometown of both my wife and mother) started taking me to Detroit when I was a youngster. My summer visits to the once famous Hudsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department store, on downtown Woodward Avenue, were magical experiences for me. As an adult Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made countless visits to the Motor City, mainly to watch my beloved Detroit Tigers play baseball at venerable Tiger Stadium or the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new home, Comerica Park. In this area when people talk about Detroit itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s usually out of fear or pity. Most are terrified of the place, even though they may have simply passed through or never been there at all. Reputation is everything!

Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not the least bit fearful of Detroit. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never had a problem there, ever! That doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean I frequent the worst urban neighbourhoods. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t set myself up for trouble by visiting certain districts. I take the same precautions in any large city we visit. Despite the abandoned buildings, empty lots, burned out streetlights and discarded junk, which news stories on Detroit inevitably feature, the city has many desirable areas. The Renaissance Center complex, seven interconnecting skyscrapers which includes General Motors world headquarters, is a sparkling jewel downtown. Three major sports teams, the Tigers, the NHL Red Wings and the NFL Lions call downtown Detroit home. Comerica Park and Ford Field, the domed stadium where the Lionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s play football, share the same parking lots. Across from the new stadiums is the historic Fox Theatre, a restored venue at the heart of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performing arts scene. Greektown, a vibrant commercial, entertainment and restaurant district is close by.

Although numbers in the city proper have declined, metropolitan Detroit with a population of 4.3 million ranked 12th among American cities in 2010. There is still much to recommend the region. Perhaps bankruptcy will be the catalyst for a revitalization which will raise Detroitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stock? Forging a new identity helped save other American industrial centres, Pittsburgh for example. Replacing decaying lots with luxury condominiums and parks and demolishing empty factory buildings to allow for commercial and retail space has rejuvenated several US centres. An increase in the population downtown could lead to all kinds of good things and an increased tax base might even return Detroit to her former glory. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tall order, but I am hopeful. The only place for Detroit to go is up! Closing note: In answer to the question I posed in last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s column. Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s official summer sport is lacrosse. If you have any comments or questions for Jeff Maguire he can be reached by email at: jeffrey.maguire@rogers. com.



Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; As much as I would like to there is no denying the depth of Detroitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decline. On July 18, staggering under the weight of as much as $20 billion in unpaid debt, the city surrendered. Officials filed the single, largest bankruptcy in American history. Newspaper writers and commentators list a number of reasons for a plunge which has now seen Detroit hit rock bottom. The reason for the bankruptcy is basic. A huge decline in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s industrial base, once keyed by the automobile and music industries, along with the flight of Detroitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s white population to safer suburban communities means the city does not have the tax base necessary to meet its financial obligations. Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s black citizens have traditionally supported the Democratic Party. Detroit, with a black population of 83 per cent, is no exception. But it was Michiganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Republican Governor Rick Snyder who ultimately pushed control of Detroitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial mess into the hands of an emergency manager. The hope is that when the dust settles the city will be able to brush itself off and move forward. With significant employee pension issues involved that seems a long shot? Without a major revitalization, a dramatic program to make the downtown more livable, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see recovery in the near future. People make city centres viable. That means boosting the population of Detroitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inner city is vital. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve all heard the depressing statistics and seen the photo and video evidence. Tens of thousands of abandoned buildings, animals roaming at large in vacant lots, a huge breakdown of Detroitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s infrastructure, an alarming crime rate and the associated decline in the population. Ultimately it has

Windsor-built 1949 Ford now resides in Nova Scotia Lifestyle – The 1949 Ford was a new post-war car from the Ford Motor Company introduced in June 1948. It created an immediate sensation with its modern styling, independent front suspension, and parallel leaf rear springs. Over a million were built. Scott and Maryann Ritcey of Porters Lake, Nova Scotia, own a 1949 Ford Tudor sedan built in Windsor, Ontario, with Canadian serial number 0470H49-76324. Scott writes: “The car was purchased in 1980 at the Barrie swap meet in Ontario by a

friend of my dad’s and carried Ontario Historic Vehicle plate HVF.102. The vendor reportedly bought it from the estate of the original owner. “It came to Nova Scotia and we stored it winters in our garage. It went through a few more owners in the Maritimes until I saw it advertised and bought it from a man in North Sydney in 2009. The trip took over six hours each way and we took a U-Haul trailer and lots of hundred dollar bills. It was the first big road trip with our twin boys, Camaron and

Carter, who were only a yearand-a-half old.” Scott tracked down and talked to all the owners in the Maritimes since 1980 but also would like to contact the previous owners in Ontario. He contacted the MTO and received this reply: “The data you are requesting is not

available. Prior to 1984, all vehicle records were in paper and stored in boxes. When the computerized system was put in place, only active vehicles were moved over.” Scott continues: “The car is light green (originally Arabian Green, according to my Ford/Meteor parts manual) with only one repaint in 1994.

The odometer shows almost 75,000 miles and I believe that is original. She’s a solid car that runs and drives as it should. Original paint is on the interior, firewall, door jambs and sills. The seat covers and headliner have been replaced, along with a lot of chrome and stainless repaired or replaced. The drive train is the original 239 cubic inch flathead V8 with column-shift three-speed manual transmission. Brakes are original, unassisted, fourwheel drum, and other than dual exhausts, the car is original underneath.

“Our boys, now five, love riding in the ‘hot rod’ as they are up high and can see everything. And I am like a kid in a candy store, Bill, waiting to see the story of our old Ford in print.” I’m always looking for more stories. Email 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.”

Bright Ideas Replace incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescent bulbs (CFLs). A CFL uses only 25 per cent as much energy as an incandescent bulb and lasts 10 times longer. Submitted photos

Holly and Ivy Holly and Ivy are two five-yearold sisters who are very attached to each other. The previous owner, unfortunately, could not take them to her new home.

Thirsty days, thirsty cars: How to tell if your car is getting good fuel mileage Lifestyle – When travel season is peppered with a gas price increase or two, it’s no wonder more drivers don’t experience a matching spike in blood-pressure. These conditions tend to cause another spike: an increase in trips to the shop to see if the chariot hasn’t picked up a virus or some other malady leading to a case of gaseous guzzlyitis. Here’s a few ways to see

if your vehicle is delivering the appropriate fuel mileage without inconvenience. 1) Test it right. No matter how much gadgetry your instrument panel has, or what super-apps you’ve downloaded onto your smartphone, there is only one way to corBRIAN TURNER rectly calculate your vehicle’s fuel mileage. Fill it up, (stopping at the first click of trip odometer to zero, drive of fuel, refill, check the disthe pump nozzle), reset your as far as possible on that tank tance travelled and do the math. On-board mileage displays rely on too many variable and inaccurately measured parameters to equal the accuracy of the tank-to-tank test. If possible complete a mostly highway driving test for comparison against your daily mix of urban and higher speed commute. 2) Get the right ratings’ guide. NRCan has admitted that their current test isn’t as good as that used by the U.S. EPA. That’s why we’re realigning our tests to more closely align with the U.S method starting with the 2013 model year. If you log onto and click on the ‘fuel efficiency’ link you can find the ratings for your particular vehicle. Then take a web-stroll over to the US counterpart at and find their ratings. Remember, the US posts in ‘miles per US gallon’, so you’ll have to add

Car Counsellor

20 per cent to get a ‘milesper-imperial-gallon rating, or bring up your favourite metric conversion calculator website to see some interesting comparisons. The EPA added a coldweather mode, an extreme and aggressive acceleration mode, and an air-conditioning load mode to their tests. Their ratings are almost always worse than ours, sometimes up to 20 per cent. It will be interesting to see if next year’s NRCan guide is any closer. 3) Improve your mileage on your own. Some of the best ways to improve fuel mileage either don’t cost a cent or involve relatively little money. Correct tire pressures, clean air filters, sub-120 kph speeds, smooth take-offs, anticipated stops, well-maintained vehicles, and empty trunks or cargo areas can all drastically increase fuel economy. 4) If it ain’t broke, no one’s likely to able to fix it. If your vehicle hasn’t got a check engine light on, or a noticeable driveability problem like hesitation, stalling, or misfire, there’s likely nothing to be mechanically/electronically repaired, tweaked, or reprogrammed to improve your fuel mileage. And as for mileage performance computer chips; they’re illegal,

and will void any engine or emission warranty still left on your auto, not to mention risking substantial emission regulation fines. The rest of the trinkets on the parts store shelf with advertisements bragging to deliver increased fuel economy are just so much hot air, so save your money.

Jackman shines again in latest Wolverine film My Take MARK HASKINS

His wounds arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t healing. He still manages to save Mariko, but Logan needs to find out whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really going on if he and Mariko are going to survive. The Wolverine does everything right. It is full of action and violence with just a hint of romance and sadness, and a few sparsely but well placed one-liners. Mangold does a brilliant job of bringing the comic book action to life in larger-thanlife sequences that are only possible in a world with superheroes. He also balances the action with a story that truly highlights this often times tragic hero. This film really captures what this character is about. No one else is ever going to be able to take on this role. Hugh Jackman has made Wolverine all his own. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nailed the look, the delivery, the swagger, and the penchant for violence. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also nailed the sadness, the grief and the nobility. While I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t very familiar with most of the cast I was impressed by them. Tao Okamoto falls into the role of Mariko with extreme grace. Rila Fukushima is perfect as Loganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sidekick Yukio. Viper Svetlana Khodchenkova exudes both venom and evil. Hal Yamanouchi is fantastic as Yashida. Of course the big treat for me was seeing Famke Jannsen return as Jean Grey. It may have only been in Loganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dreams, but she was still great. The Wolverine is awesome. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Nuff said. Mark Haskinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; column is a regular feature of the EMC.

Slow down, move over: OPP EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Lanark County Detachment of The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) wishes to remind drivers that emergency responders regularly face dangerous and difficult situations as they go about their daily duties serving and protecting our communities. Drivers must remember when passing a stopped emergency vehicle with its emergency lights activated, in the same direction of travel, either in a lane or on the shoulder of a road or highway, to slow down and pass with caution. If the road has two or more lanes you MUST move over into another lane, if it can be done in safety. Sections 159(2) and 159(3) of the Ontario Highway Traffic Act require all motorists approaching a stopped emergency vehicle to slow down and pass with caution. Drivers who fail to comply with this law are subject to the following penalties under the Highway Traffic Act. First offence: $400 to $2,000 fine plus three demerit points. Second offence (within five years): $1,000 to $4,000 fine plus possible jail time up to six months and a possible suspension of their drivers licence for up to two years.

MOVIE: The Wolverine STARRING: Hugh Jackman, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Famke Janssen and Hal Yamanouchi DIRECTOR: James Mangold RATING: PG EMC Entertainment The Wolverine is exactly how you do a movie about Wolverine. Exactly. After being forced to kill Jean Grey (Famke Janssen) Logan (Hugh Jackman) has gone into seclusion. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s turned away from the world vowing to never hurt anyone again. Then again, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter if you turn away from the world because the world sometimes comes looking for you. Loganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s past comes for him in the form of a young woman named Yukio (Rila Fukushima). She has come on behalf of her adoptive grandfather, Yashida (Hal Yamanouchi), whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dying and wishes to say goodbye to the man who once saved him. Somewhat reluctantly Logan agrees to fly to Japan and meet with the old man. During World War II Logan was a prisoner just outside Nagasaki when events led to him saving a young Japanese officer just as the bomb was dropped. Now Yashida wants to repay Logan by giving him the one thing he thinks Logan wants; his mortality. Yashida wants to transfer Loganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing healing ability into himself thus extending his own life and allowing Logan to live a normal one. Logan turns down Yashidaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offer, but it appears not to matter as the old man passes soon after, and Logan prepares to go home. Then at the funeral the Yakuza make an attempt to kill Yashidaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s granddaughter, Mariko (Tao Okamoto), and Logan is right in the thick of it again. Logan jumps into the fray, but something isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t right.

Thousands to benefit from court ruling News – The Designated Physiotherapy Clinics Association (DPCA) said thousands of Ontario seniors will benefit from a July 26 ruling by the Ontario Divisional Court that will suspend the Ontario government’s plan to delist and significantly cut funding for OHIP physiotherapy on Aug. 1. “This is a victory for the thousands of Ontario seniors who depend on OHIP-funded physiotherapy for their mobility, their independence and their well-being,” said DPCA executive director Tony Melles, which provides OHIP-funded physiotherapy. “During the proceedings, it became clear from the government’s own testimony that the government deliberately neglected to meet its responsibility – and its own process – in failing to provide us with the required minimum 45 days notice that it was drastically cutting funding.” In his ruling, Justice Thomas Lederer referred the matter to a three-judge panel, which on Aug. 21 will consider an application for a judicial review from DPCA on stopping the cuts altogether. The province’s 91 designated physiotherapy clinics can continue to provide OHIP physiotherapy to their patients. “This has been a stressful, difficult situation for thousands of seniors, patients, their families and dedicated physiotherapy workers,” said Melles. “There was absolutely no consultation prior to the government’s decision, although court documents show that plans had been underway for the past 12 months to delist physiotherapy from the OHIP schedule of benefits. Health Minister Deb Matthews met with us on March 28 of this year, and gave no indication that significant funding and regulatory changes were coming. On April 18, she made her announcement.” Melles pointed out that in its testimony, the government acknowledged that it spent $200-million on physiotherapy in the 12 months ended March 31, 2013, and was budgeting only $156-million for the current year. The Minister continues to portray the new funding level as an “increase.” The Justice’s decision is being celebrated by physiotherapists and physiotherapy assistants across the province. More than 3,000 Ontario physiotherapy workers – including 1,000 physiotherapists – were set to lose their jobs this week, as a result of the government’s cuts. More than 35,000 Ontario seniors living in retirement homes, supportive housing, and their own homes, had already been notified that their physiotherapists would not be able to treat them after Aug. 1. Now, they’ll receive care at least until Aug. 21. Submitted by Designated Physiotherapy Clinics Association.

Practise safe boating this holiday weekend News – Drinking and boating accounts for approximately 40 per cent of boating-related fatalities on Canadian waterways. To raise awareness and reduce alcohol related deaths, the Canadian Safe Boating Council (CSBC) is launching Operation Dry Water, an initiative to discourage this dangerous practice. With the summer boating season in high gear, the Aug. 3 long weekend is the perfect time to remind Canadian boaters about the risks of drinking and boating. Combined with sun, wind, waves and the rocking motion of the boat, the effects of alcohol on the water can be greatly increased. Operation Dry Water will focus on the potential risks of drinking and boating, and remedies that are currently in place to discourage it. Operation Dry Water is aimed at reducing the number of alcohol-related accidents and fatalities on the water while fostering a stronger and more visible deterrent to alcohol use while boating. The end goal? To achieve safer and more enjoyable recreational boating. For a 30-second public service announcement and additional information on boating safety, please visit www.csbc. ca.

Forestry plays key role for all parties in proposed Algonquin settlement in partnership with Ontario and our neighbours to foster a sustainable forestry industry built on a foundation of economic prosperity, conservation and stewardship. This column is the fifth in a


Lifestyle – The following is part of a series, provided by the Algonquins of Ontario. Forested areas have been integral to the Algonquin way of life since time immemorial. The proposed forestry chapter of the preliminary draft Agreement-in-Principle (AIP) recognizes the importance of the forest industry in the Algonquin Settlement Area to both the Algonquins of Ontario (AOO) and their neighbours. The cornerstone of this chapter is the commitment by the AOO and Ontario to work cooperatively to maintain support for the existing forest industry, while increasing Algonquin participation in, and benefits from the forestry sector. This commitment reflects the importance of forestry to the culture, economic stability and prosperity of the AOO. Through several proposed initiatives and collaborative partnerships, the preliminary draft AIP carves out more meaningful participation for the AOO within the forest industry. A number of proposed elements to be reflected in a final agreement are highlighted below. Economic development and training opportunities Key to the forestry chapter is the development of economic opportunities and supporting measures to increase Algonquin employment and participation in the forest industry throughout the settlement area, including in Algonquin Park. These initiatives include: • otifying the AOO of government contracts and job

of the preliminary draft AIP. For more information visit www. Robert Potts is Principal Negotiator and Senior Legal Counsel for the Algonquins of Ontario.

Robert Potts opportunities related to forestry in Algonquin Park, • encouraging potential Algonquin employment, training and contract opportunities with Sustainable Forest License (SFL) holders, • the consideration of the potential for Algonquin benefits as a relevant factor when Ontario is evaluating tender bids or other government contracting procedures, • the provision of training opportunities by Ontario and the Algonquin Forestry Authority for the AOO in the forestry industry in Algonquin Park, including silviculture. Forestry management and planning A final agreement will also set out the nature and scope of Algonquin participation in forestry management and planning, including representation on planning teams, both inside and outside of Algonquin

Park. In addition, Ontario will appoint at a minimum one person nominated by the AOO to the board of directors of the Algonquin Forestry Authority for Algonquin Park. Ontario continues its commitment to consultation with the AOO on any new forestry policy initiatives within the settlement area, including the forestry tenure and pricing review. Moving forward The AOO, Ontario and representatives for SFLs located within the Algonquin Settlement Area have already begun working together to address forestry matters related to the Algonquin treaty negotiations as well as to collaboratively develop economic opportunities to enhance the competitiveness of the region. As we move forward towards a historic modern-day treaty, the AOO are committed to working

Alcohol, boating make deadly combination Lifestyle – Ahh, boating! Skimming over the water with the wind in your hair. What a great way to spend a summer afternoon, especially with family and friends. A carefree atmosphere like this is just made to have fun and party. However, this partying should never include drinking alcohol. Mixing alcohol and boating can have tragic consequences. When the Canadian Safe Boating Council and SmartBoater. ca speak to Canadian boaters each year, there is no gentle way to say it. Being impaired while operating a boat can cost you thousands of dollars, or worse, turn a fun day into a deadly outing! Federal statutes dictate that, whether or not your craft is motorized, you can be charged with Impaired Operation of a vessel under the Criminal Code of Canada if your blood alcohol level exceeds the .08 threshold. That means you can be charged even if you are impaired while operating a canoe and a judge can, upon conviction, suspend your boating privileges, but it can get worse. Some provinces have enacted additional legislation to curb the practice of drinking and boating.

series providing insights into Algonquin history, the foundation for the land claim, elements of the preliminary draft AIP and next steps in the journey. The next column will focus on the heritage and culture component

In Ontario for example, Bill 209 amended the Highway Traffic Act to also apply to “anyone operating or having the care or control of a vessel.” As such, anyone found boating with a blood alcohol level above .05, face an on-the-spot drivers’ license suspension. That’s right! You can lose your automobile driver’s licence and should your blood alcohol concentration exceed .08, upon conviction an additional suspension of up to one year can be applied. If that’s not a sufficient deterrent, add the financial impact of court and legal fees, alternative transportation for the year (i.e. taxi, bus, train, etc.) and potential loss of employment if driving is an essential component of your job. But many impaired boaters are not stopped before something even worse happens. The Canadian Safe Boating Council completed a survey that identified in nearly 40 per cent of boating related deaths alcohol was a factor and 23 per cent of the cases involved alcohol above the legal limit. What increases the effects of alcohol while boating are sunshine and a boat’s natural rocking motion that can turn a simple ride into a dangerous

dunking. It only takes a large wake or wave, a quick change in the boat’s direction, or a ‘tippy canoe’ to result in someone falling overboard with tragic consequences. Navigating a boat takes coordination and your full concentration. Your decision making skills and ability to react suddenly to changes in condition and surroundings is compromised by alcohol. Your reaction time slows, your vision and judgement are affected and you are more willing to be reckless and take risks. Psychologists know that human nature has a way of rationalizing. “It can’t possibly happen to me” is often the thought. Whether that means “I’ll never be caught,” or “I’ll never be killed,” doesn’t matter. Neither of those things will happen if boaters stick to just boating on the water. Afterward, you can have a few drinks on shore and then stay put. It’s that simple – if you drink, don’t drive your boat.

Seniors, physiotherapy workers celebrate court’s decision to suspend cutbacks News – The Designated Physiotherapy Clinics Association (DPCA) said thousands of Ontario seniors will benefit from a July 26 ruling by the Ontario Divisional Court that will suspend the Ontario government’s plan to delist and significantly cut funding for OHIP physiotherapy on Aug. 1. “This is a victory for the thousands of Ontario seniors who depend on OHIP-funded physiotherapy for their mobility, their independence and their well-being,” said DPCA executive director Tony Melles, which provides OHIP-funded physiotherapy. “During the proceedings, it became clear from the government’s own testimony that the government deliberately neglected to meet its responsibility – and its own process – in failing to provide us with the required minimum 45 days notice that it was drastically cutting funding.” In his ruling, Justice Thomas Lederer referred the matter to a three-judge panel, which on Aug. 21 will consider an application for a judicial review from DPCA on stopping the cuts altogether.

Colleen’s wonderful and dedicated friends should be commended for their constant help and support; immeasurable gratitude to Lynne Prevost and Roy Rivers (Sarnia), Michelle Vandermoer and Shannon Sengbusch (London), Krista Larouche (Lombardy), as well as her faithful Labrador Diesel. We will miss her infectious smile, witty humour and loving heart. She has been taken from us too soon and will be dearly missed. Do not stand at my grave and weep. In those quiet moments in the still of the night, Remember to rejoice and celebrate life. Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there; I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow, I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning’s hush, I am the swift uplifting rush. Of quiet birds in circled flight, I am the soft stars that shine at night. You will hear my gentle voice and remember to rejoice, Never give up your fight and remember to always celebrate life. ~ Author unknown ~

Put physiotherapy changes on hold, Clark tells health minister HELP WANTED


News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Looming cuts to physiotherapy services for seniors, in particular those in long-term care and retirement residences, should be put on hold until the impact can be fully measured, said Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark. Clark, who has received letters from dozens of seniors across the riding and petitions signed by many more, has written to Health and Long-Term Care Minister Deb Matthews asking that she delay the changes, which take effect Aug. 1. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seniors are calling and writing to me because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re worried about whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to happen to the physiotherapy they depend on come Aug. 1,â&#x20AC;? said Clark. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m shocked that the minister has implemented such dramatic change in service without any consultation. No wonder there is so much confusion in the community.â&#x20AC;? In his letter, Clark wrote: â&#x20AC;&#x153;These changes, I believe, will see a reduction in service for Ontario seniors and have serious consequences on their long-term health. Beyond the impact on the health and well-being of seniors in my riding, your plan will inevitably add costs to the health-care system resulting from increased falls and other consequences of

Affordable residences at 411 Country Street officially open By KELLY KENT

News – Several happy and hard working people were glad to stand together and hold the ribbon that would be cut to signify the grand opening of phase two of the residences at 411 Country Street on July 29 in Almonte. Cars lined the street in front of the new building, which holds 20 new housing units for low-income seniors and people with disabilities, and a large crowd of people including dignitaries, residents and project workers gathered to watch the addresses. The Country Street project to create affordable housing was started by Mills Community Support in conjunction with the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), in what Lee Brebner, the former chair of the Mills Community Support board of directors, called “a successful partnership of all levels of government.” Phase two of the project, which officially opened in November of 2011, began as a bid to create a 40-unit building, according to Brebner, but ultimately ended up being a 20-unit phase that created more than 50 jobs within the community and more options for low-income locals. “Some people would say that safe, affordable housing is a privilege,” said Bill Dobson, Lanark County’s warden for 2013, “but I think that it is a right, and I’m glad that we could create more of it in Mississippi Mills.” According to a release from CMHC, the project received $2.38 million in funding from the federal and provincial gov-


Phase two of the affordable housing development at 411 Country Street in Almonte was officially opened July 29.

ernments, and also had support from Canada’s Economic Action Plan. Linda Jeffrey, Ontario’s Minister for Municipal Affairs and Housing, was able to attend the ceremony and spoke of how important she thinks it

is to have affordable housing, especially for seniors. “Investment in affordable housing is really an investment in dignity,” she said. Marjorie Buttrum, a resident in the building, has been living in the phase two building since it opened almost two years ago. She spoke of how nice it was to be so close to the seniors home next door, where she visits her friend Jack almost every day. “That shows you how thoughtful people are in Almonte,” she said. Mississippi Mills mayor John Levi gave a short address, saying how proud he was of the community for pulling together and creating such an important project. “They deserve a lot of cred-

it,” he said. “I’m really very proud of the people who put in the time and effort to get this building done.” Levi also mentioned that the next phase, phase three, might be a project that will create assisted seniors living in the area. After the addresses, several people, including residents and hard-working helpers, gathered to proudly hold the ribbon for the official cutting ceremony. It was a moment of triumph; this building that so many had worked so tirelessly to create, was officially open. “It just demonstrates what we can achieve when we come together,” said Gordon O’Connor, Member of Parliament for Carleton-Mississippi Mills.

Abandoned home causing problems in neighbourhood By TARA GESNER

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Raccoons, wild turkeys and a pool full of stagnant water â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just a few of the problems with an abandoned house in one Carleton Place neighbourhood. The home, located at 41 Julian St., is an eyesore, smells bad and is overrun with raccoons. At the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s policy review committee meeting July 23, a letter received from some residents of Julian Street and area was presented to council, expressing concerns about the condition of the house and property. Les Reynolds, director of protective services, admitted the residence has been the subject of numerous property standards and yard maintenance orders since 2009. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This property has been an ongoing problem,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s primarily been yard maintenance, but there has been an issue with the swimming pool.â&#x20AC;? Two years ago council revised the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bylaw dealing with swimming pools, requiring property owners to maintain their pools (no standing water, proper filtration equipment and more). â&#x20AC;&#x153;The pool has been subject to a number of orders,â&#x20AC;? Reynolds said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and now things have escalated to a hole in the roof.â&#x20AC;? According to nearby homeowners the property has been abandoned for approximately 15 years, although at times the owner has made some effort to maintain it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By and large the property owner

Reynolds said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s either done the work himself or weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had somebody come in and cut the grass and invoiced him for it.â&#x20AC;? Concerns Major concerns, some considered by residents to be a serious health issue, include an open inground pool in the backyard full of stagnant, green water â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a perfect environment for mosquito breeding and the potential spread of West Nile virus. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more, raccoons have nested inside the home, gaining access by way of a hole in the roof. Neighbours indicate the animals are multiplying and becoming a huge nuisance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Due to lack of maintenance in the backyard, growth is coming over fencing into the neighbouring properties,â&#x20AC;? the letter stated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The grass in the front yard has recently been cut â&#x20AC;&#x201C; only due to the efforts of the son of one councillor. Surely this is not a solution to the problem.â&#x20AC;? Residents strongly feel the enforcement of the municipalityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s property standards bylaw is not working. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As taxpayers to the town as well, we feel the town has some responsibility to protect our property values,â&#x20AC;? the correspondence continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a process outlined in the various bylaws that needs to be followed, and for good reason,â&#x20AC;? Reynolds said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t force our way into someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s property.â&#x20AC;?

Locals’ frustrations ran high at Clayton residents’ meeting July 24 By KELLY KENT

News – It was a full house at the Clayton residents’ meeting held at the Clayton Community Hall on July 24. People packed themselves into the crowded hall to discuss three different issues, including cell phone coverage and speed limits, at one of few meetings in which Clayton residents have the opportunity to participate. One of the hotter topics at the meeting was the cell phone coverage issue. Residents have filed numerous complaints about the lack of coverage they have in their village and demanded to know what was being done about it. Frustrations were clearly heard from the crowd while Lanark County chief administrative officer Kurt Greaves spoke of the county’s efforts to rectify the issue. He said that the county has identified the trouble areas in the village and have plotted them on a map, which they then sent to Bell Canada. Greaves went on to say that they are working with a consultant at Bell who specializes in bringing coverage to rural areas. “Bell has put in some new towers in other rural areas and seem to be open to the idea,” he stated. The analysis from the county was finished last week, but

Greaves says he hopes to hear some news soon. “We’re putting as much political pressure on (Bell) as we can,” he said. When asked by a resident if they were planning on obtaining more service providers to cover the area, Greaves said that they wanted to focus on Bell for the time being. “Bell seems to be the most willing to work with the smaller communities,” he said, so he wanted to get the ball rolling with them first. He mentioned that he is doing his best to get additional coverage in Clayton. “I think we’ll be successful with Bell,” said Greaves. Speed limits Later on in the meeting, the discussion was moved to the proposed speed limit changes in the village. Troy Dunlop, the director of roads and public works for the Town of Mississippi Mills, gave the crowd an update on where the issue currently stands. He said he is waiting on a report from the municipalities in Mississippi Mills that will outline the speed limits they will implement. The current proposal, according to Dunlop, is to reduce the speed limit to 50 kilometres/h from Bay Road to civic address 2746 at the edge of the municipality; and to extend the speed limit of 60 km/h from Bay Road to 500 metres

to the west. The topic will be discussed at the Aug. 6 council meeting in Mississippi Mills, and a report will be compiled by September. Dunlop said he expects the changes to go through and to be im-

plemented by mid to late October. The feelings of the crowd appeared to be mixed: some seemed to be in favour of the speed limit changes and others against them. Heated arguments were started several times at the meeting, often

being quieted by Mississippi Mills Coun. Paul Watters, who chaired the meeting. “We can’t let this get personal,” he said. “Please direct all of your questions to the panel at the front, and we will direct them back to the

crowd.”Dunlop said he heard all of the residents’ comments and concerns and would bring them to the council meeting. Minutes and updates from the meeting will be posted at

roof. “If you have an abandoned house with an open inground pool full of water and kids scale the fence and someone drowns, is the town not subject to a lawsuit?” asked Dawn Dewis. “The property owner is required to maintain their pool according to the bylaw,” Reynolds answered. “He hasn’t!” said Dewis. “Nobody has even looked in the backyard.” “I understand, but the law doesn’t allow us to kick the door down or kick the gate down,” Reynolds said. “The bylaws aren’t perfect, they’re

cumbersome.” “I would think the pool and the wildlife in the house are some sort of health issue,” said Dewis. “They are,” Reynolds said. “The hole in the roof is a property standards issue. It’s subject to an order right now.” When a property standards order is issued, the owner has two weeks to do the work or to ask for an extension, explaining what the problem is. At the end of the two weeks, if the work has not been completed, the town issues an order to comply. Again, there is a period of two weeks to correct the work or appeal to council. Council can uphold the order or set it aside.

If council upholds the order, the property owner has 30 days to appeal to the court in Perth. “If someone wants to, they can drag out the process,” Reynolds said. “Dawn, I know you’re frustrated, we’re frustrated,” he added. “However, there has been work done over the last four years.” Coun. Gary Strike has spoken directly to the homeowner. Coun. Rob Probert, meeting chair, said council understands the complexity of the issue. Council carried a motion for staff to continue to enforce the property standards and yard maintenance bylaws as required.

Volunteers needed for Mississippi Lake Plan

Community – The waterways of Lanark County are often a point of pride for local residents and many want to keep them as pristine and beautiful as they are today. The Mississippi Lake Planning Committee, an offshoot of the Mississippi Lake Association, is working to do just that: preserve the condition of the lake that is at the centre of four local municipalities. Mississippi Mills, Carleton Place, Beckwith Township and Drummond-North Elmsley are all affected by Mississippi Lake, says Rob Bell, a member of the MLPC, adding that the lake supplies all of the drinking water for Carleton Place. The committee, which was started by a group of concerned locals along with rep-

resentatives from the Mississippi Lake Association, aims to create a lake plan to help maintain or even improve the condition of the lake that so many locals rely on. A lake plan is a strategic action plan developed by a lake community to help understand and preserve the special character of the lake in question, according to a release from the MLPC. It is volunteer driven and takes committed locals who are devoted to the conservation of their waterway. “We’re like a bird that is just about to take off at this point,” said Bell. “We’re right on the cusp of take off. We’re ready to fly, but we need some help to get in the air.” The committee hopes to create a report on the current state of the lake to assess what needs to happen going forward. After they compile the state-of-lake report, they will

create a mission statement – a vision – of what they’d like to see for the future of Mississippi Lake. Bell said that the MLPC needs volunteers – devoted, concerned and committed locals and professionals who care about the condition of their lake – to step forward and take action. “We’ve done the background work,” said Bell, “but now it’s time to engage the community.” The committee will be hosting an open meeting at the Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority building on Hwy. 7 outside of Carleton Place on August 20. The meeting begins at 7 p.m., and Bell has asked anyone who is interested in volunteering to please attend. At the meeting, attendees will have a chance to hear from Lynn Preston, a provin-

cial shoreline stewardship coordinator with the Centre for Sustainable Watersheds and a member of the MLPC, on why it is important to take action to preserve local waterways. “I tell it like it is. There is no lake fairy who will magically do it for you,” she said at a recent meeting of the MLPC. People with skills or interest in a variety of areas are wanted: biologists, communications volunteers, history buffs, organizers and passionate locals are just a few examples the MLPC provided. Anyone interested in having the opportunity to contribute to the lake plan can visit the MLPC website at www. or their Facebook page. Serious inquiries about volunteering can be directed to Rob Bell at misslakeplanorg.

Kathleen Wynne’s no-win situation Editorial – Today, voters across the province will be casting judgment on the fate of Premier Kathleen Wynne’s Liberal government. It feels a little bit more like a poll is being taken across the province, like those annoying suppertime telephone polls except this one is binding. It may not be quite the referendum on Wynne that Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak is calling it, but neither is it something that can be ignored. Today, voters in London West, WindsorTecumseh, Etobicoke-Lakeshore, ScarboroughGuildwood, and in Ottawa South, will go to the polls to plug up some holes in the seats at Queen’s Park. As we have seen in past elections, like 1990, London is often a bellweather for the rest of the province. Very often, as goes London, so too goes the rest of Ontario, somewhat of a microcosm of enough of the province to be representative of it. Unlike by-elections held during a majority government’s mandate, which are often of little consequence to the balance of power, these votes will significantly alter the political landscape, depending on how well the opposition parties

do. The Liberals’ hold on Toronto now looks iffy, but anything can happen in Ottawa, and the NDP and Tories could take seats away in London and Windsor, according to the polls. Remember that there was only one seat separating Dalton McGuinty from another majority government back in October of 2011. By tonight, that gap could grow wider. It is interesting to see just how many Liberal ministers, like Dwight Duncan, Laurel Broten, and Dalton McGuinty himself, have jumped ship rather than face what now seems like an inevitable meltdown for the Grits. Wynne has been stoic, but realistic about these battles. Campaigning in London West, she told the Toronto Star recently, “as you know, by-elections are tough for incumbent governments.” She may be preparing the embattled Liberals for even more bad news come this evening after the polls close. Some have called her decision to have these elections in the dead of summer a cynical move to catch the voters unawares, but, even if she had held off until September, it still would have been viewed as a summer campaign, and those seats should be filled in time for the fall session, and

to bring new MPPs up to speed. Damned if she does, damned if she doesn’t. Now, it’s not over yet, and Wynne can take solace with what she has seen in three other elections. The polls were way off in British Columbia this past May, returning Premier Christy Clark to office, to the surprise of everyone but her. In Alberta, the polls swung, under the radar, in the last two weeks of the campaign, enough to keep Alison Redford’s Progressive Conservatives in office. And even next door in Quebec, while Pauline Marois’ Parti Quebecois returned to power after nearly a decade in opposition, Jean Charest’s Liberals did not go into complete meltdown, as many had predicted. In many ways, Wynne has to take ownership of mistakes she didn’t make, promising change while, at the same time, not distancing herself

too much from the premiership of ‘what’s-hisname’ from 2003 to 2012. Last September’s Kitchener-Waterloo by-election, which saw a surprise win for the NDP in a seat not normally warm to the social democrats, was one of the bellweathers which likely hastened McGuinty’s departure (his first one). This time around, Wynne, just selected by her party as leader this past January, can’t cut and run like McGuinty did. And with a new cabinet sworn in this past winter, she can’t borrow a page from Prime Minister Stephen Harper and have a cabinet shuffle this early on. Even prorogation seems out. She is in an unfortunate position in many ways, and while she appears to be personally friendly, she may also, like former Prime Minister Kim Campbell, end up paying the price for the guy who skipped out on the bill.

Watch for shorebirds beginning their migration south of any North American birds. Many traverse more than 24,194 kilometres in this annual circuit. (Taken from a reference book). One of the first to migrate from the Arctic to Argentina is the Pectoral Sandpiper. The adults leave first. These sandpipers often leave by the end of June, and arrive by the end of August. They have staging areas on their journey in: Manitoba, South Carolina, and Barbados, before arriving in the Argentine. Staging areas are where they stop in the daytime to rest and feed before continuing south, at night. Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs, Spotted Sandpipers, and Least

Strictly for the Birds LYNDA C. BENNETT

Sandpipers are a few that we might see. If you see any of these flocks, please call and let me know. Ray Holland had been asked to verify if Cerulean Warbler and Yellow-throated Vireo had been seen near Ferguson Lake in Renfrew County. He did find them, July 9, plus Scarlet Tanager, White-throated Sparrow, and an Olive-sided

Flycatcher. Cliff decided he would come with me to see if we might hear/see them also. July 10, we left early and arrived in the area by 8:30 a.m. The Whitethroated Sparrow sang, as did the Scarlet Tanager, but we lucked out on the other three species. Had close views of a singing Indigo Bunting, and a male Rose-breasted Grosbeak perched in a dead tree. Two Ruffed Grouse were walking on the road as we rounded a corner. We tallied 40 species, then it was time for lunch. Please call Lynda Bennett at 613-256-5013 or email bennett@ with your bird reports.

Lifestyle – Young birds are calling for their parents to feed them, from morning to evening. Are you noticing any youngsters in your backyard or trees on your property? We have had young Hairy Woodpeckers with the parents at our feeders, asking to be fed. Blue Jay young are also here, but seem to manage quite well. They look dusty or with a slight gray colour on the wings, as adult plumage is not yet completed. This is the time for shorebirds to begin migrating south to their wintering grounds. As a group, they undertake some of the most spectacular of long-distance migrations

MP Scott Reid seeks senate reform, not abolition By DESMOND DEVOY

News – Mend it, don’t end it. Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox and Addington MP Scott Reid said this week that while he understands the frustrations of his constituents about the ongoing senate scandals, he is not endorsing a plan by Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall to abolish the senate. “I’m in favour of doing something that is achievable,” said the Conservative backbencher on July 22. “In a non-ideal world, in which we live, senate abolition is not my preference.” He pointed out that Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s government has already referred six questions to the

Supreme Court about how the upper chamber can be fixed. Just how to proceed on reforming the senate is a dicey one for the government since there are five separate amending formulas for the constitution. While the hearings on the questions start at the Supreme Court in Ottawa in November, Reid pointed out that he believed it was possible for some manner of term limits to be imposed on the senate. He referred to a 1965 decision by the House of Commons which saw senators face mandatory retirement at age 75 instead of life-long appointments. In the United States and Australia, senators serve six-year terms, something he would like to see in Ottawa as well. “It’s reasonable that some

type of term is permissible,” said Reid. “We don’t want to do 12 years. That is too long.” He also stressed his support for a 2006 democratic reform proposal from the Harper government which would have seen senators elected by preferential ballot, something he hoped would have led to a red chamber, “as much as possible (filled with) independent thinkers,” modeled upon the Australian state of Tasmania’s upper house. Since May, whatever support existed for the senate has mostly evaporated in the wake of expense scandals from former Conservative senators like Pamela Wallin, Mike Duffy, Patrick Brazeau, and former Liberal Mac Harb.

But for Reid, “better auditing and reporting is better,” than absolute abolition. He points to the spending scandal in the British House of Commons which caught up members of all three major parties there, and likely resulted in the coalition government that followed between the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats in 2011. However, Reid cautioned against a rush to judgment, saying that the constitution exists to prevent wide swings in public sentiment from running roughshod over rights. He also noted that referendums in Canada are not binding as they usually are in Ireland, “binding in a way that they cannot be here, though I wish they were.”

Iconic Dungarvon church tower stands tall no more after demolition

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Heritage is something that many Almonte locals fight hard to preserve. Historic sites, original buildings and old world charm are part of what makes the town unique. That is also why Chris Loosemore, the owner of the historic Dungarvon church, is so frustrated. As Almonte locals have no doubt noticed over the past year or so, the old church at the corner of Main Street and Union Street has been at the centre of dramatic events, the most recent of which being the destruction of the buildingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s iconic tower. Several feet of the tower, which was once thought to be the tallest point in Almonte, have

now been toppled, completing stage one of the ultimate removal of the stonework altogether. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a shame really,â&#x20AC;? said Loosemore, who says he feels alone in the battle to preserve the church. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No one seems to care whether this building stays or goes.â&#x20AC;? According to Loosemore, the towerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s destruction is a project that he has taken on to quell the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fears that the tower is dangerous. The tower was declared dangerous, says Loosemore, after an anonymous tip was made to the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s then chief building official that a brick had fallen off of the church and onto Main Street. Main Street was subsequently closed after an inspection of the church was made by the CBO, who concluded that the build-


The iconic Dungarvon Church at the corner of Main Street and Union Street in Almonte has lost a part of its tower after it was deemed unsafe. The church will undergo a complete transformation as the tower is removed and redone.

ing was indeed unsafe, says Loosemore. Fences were erected, entirely blocking Main Street for several weeks, at the inconvenience of locals, who had to deal with traffic being rerouted down Queen Street. Almonte became a place of constant congestion, something locals never dreamed their town would become. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s absolutely no danger to the public here,â&#x20AC;? said Loosemore, who has been working on and living in the church for many years. After taking ownership of the historical church in 2003, Loosemore and his heritage renovation company, Wright Refinishings, began work to restore the old church with the intention of creating apartment units and offices inside.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a beautiful old building,â&#x20AC;? said Loosemore. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can really see a lot of potential in it.â&#x20AC;? The building, says Loosemore, has been around for over 100 years, since it was built to be a Methodist church in 1886. Then, in 1937 the church was closed and it became a commercial building instead. A machining company called Dungarvon converted the church into a factory in the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;40s. Their name can still be seen on the side of the building, giving the church its current name. Loosemore has been working on renovations to the building continuously for the last 10 years, revamping the entire east wall and constructing apartment units inside.

Walk the walk for Autism Aug. 17 at the CPHS track

Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Carleton Place High School (CPHS) track will be a busy place on Saturday, Aug. 17 as many people come together to support a great cause. The third annual Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Walk for Autism, hosted by the Lanark Autism Support Group (LASG), gets underway at 9 a.m. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fun-filled, family friendly event is open to everyone,â&#x20AC;? said Patricia Darlington, a member of LASG. The LASG, founded five years ago (2008), is made up of parents, family members, professionals, support workers and others. The group gathers monthly (first Monday) to discuss relevant issues, to support one another, and to advocate for children from all areas of the autism spectrum.

TOWER From page A/CP9

He insists that the building is safe, saying that even with the recent earthquakes, not a stone in the building has so much as shifted. After an engineer inspected the building, the fences were moved back to open the road, but the

A registered massage therapist in Carleton Place, Darlingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 15year-old son Corbin is on the spectrum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Autism is a spectrum disorder, meaning there is a wide degree of variation in the way it affects people,â&#x20AC;? she said. The Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Walk for Autism brings young people with the disorder and their families together, and in a safe environment. Darlington explained the CPHS track was selected as the site for the event because the area is contained (fenced. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is important â&#x20AC;&#x201C; especially if we have runners,â&#x20AC;? she added. Once again the cost is $10 and includes the walk and access to the dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s activities, which are plentiful. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will be food and refreshments, a bouncy castle, arts and crafts, face painting, door prizes, and much more,â&#x20AC;? said Darlington.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;A number of local businesses have generously donated items.â&#x20AC;? In the last two years more than 200 walkers have helped raise over $7,000, which is distributed to Lanark County families struggling day-to-day with autism so they can have some desperately needed time off (respite). â&#x20AC;&#x153;For many families the only respite they receive, they end up paying for out of their own pockets, and it is not cheap,â&#x20AC;? said Darlington. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Specialized care is a must.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;With respite you can also be a family with (focus on) your other children,â&#x20AC;? she continued. Families in search of financial aid fill out an application, which is reviewed by Lanark Community Programs (LCP). Darlington said a number of families access programs by way of LCP. Situated in Carleton Place on

Bennett Street, LCP, part of Lanark Health & Community Services, is an agency whose purpose is to provide support services to children and families, especially those made more vulnerable by developmental, physical or economic limitations. The Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Walk for Autism is also a way to heighten awareness about autism and the issues facing the local and national autism communities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If your child is newly diagnosed, or if you are new to the community, you are not alone,â&#x20AC;? said Darlington. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We understand, and at this outing your children are okay. They can scream, roll around and finger flick.â&#x20AC;? On Aug. 17 LASG is hoping to match its extraordinary success. Registration forms for the walk are available online at the LASG website:

sidewalks remained inaccessible. Then, after a while, the fences were moved off of the sidewalk and onto the churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s property. Loosemore says this is a sure sign that the building is not unsafe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If my building is so unsafe, then why is the public being allowed to walk directly under it?â&#x20AC;? he said.

Now, Loosemore said that the town has ordered him to take down the tower and after he does so, the fences can be removed entirely. The destruction of the tower will come in three stages: first, the tower will be brought down to the brownstone that circles around it; next, it will be taken down fur-

ther, to be level with the slope of the roof of the church; finally, the corners on Main Street and Union Street will be lowered to create a balcony. Loosemore said he feels like he is alone in the battle to preserve the building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why has no one spoken up?â&#x20AC;? he asked.

Recycling at its best: old house finds new home on lot in Carleton Place By TARA GESNER


A worker from CDS Building Movers prepares for the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;recycledâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; home to be placed on the lot at 240 Sarah St. CDS Building Movers in Stittsville, specializing in the relocation of large structures or heritage buildings, completed the move. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The expense is definitely in the move,â&#x20AC;? said Peter.

Vacant lot Last year on March 26 fire destroyed a single-family home situated at 240 Sarah St. At the time, Les Reynolds, chief of the Ocean Wave Fire Company, said

the blaze appears to have started in a bedroom, but the exact cause is unknown. However, it was not deemed suspicious. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect to know the cause (of the blaze),â&#x20AC;? he continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you have that level of destruction, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to pinpoint the cause. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In many instances the cause is classified as undetermined.â&#x20AC;? Goldie Mohr Ltd demolished the home â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it was not rebuilt. In a previous interview with Paul Knowles, the Carleton Placeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief administrative officer (CAO), he said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unfortunately, there was no insurance, and the charred remnants of the home must be tore down. The cost will be funded by way of taxes.â&#x20AC;? The CAO indicated the town would sell the lot one day and recoup some of the money. On July 16 the relocated home was maneuvered over a hole made by excavating. The foundation will be built to match the house.

At this time the 1,100 square feet residence has three bedrooms and one bathroom. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our plan is to put a second full-size bath in the basement,â&#x20AC;? said Peter. His goal is to have the home completed in six months or less. It will be marketed at the end of October or beginning of November to first time buyers or empty nesters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will be a quality home with superior finishes,â&#x20AC;? said Allison. She noted the homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s original crown moulding is in great shape. Peter said the asking price would most likely be between $250,000 to $275,000. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s achievable,â&#x20AC;? he continued. The couple stated local trades people would be utilized in the renovation process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We feel strongly about supporting local businesses,â&#x20AC;? said Allison. R0012237342_0801

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; As they say in the real estate world, location is everything. Peter and Allison Adamovits of Carleton Place are new homeowners, and all they had to do was move the house they bought for $1 to its new location â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 60 kilometres away. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We looked at four or five houses before settling on this one,â&#x20AC;? said Peter, owner of Carleton Park Ave Homes Inc. The business, in its first year, is a residential redevelopment company focused on the purchase, renovation and update of homes to meet the needs of buyers seeking both high quality and high value. Peter and Allison already own property in the municipality, a six-unit apartment building at the corner of Park Avenue and Coleman Street.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have solid management experience as landlords,â&#x20AC;? said Allison, â&#x20AC;&#x153;as well as doing renovations.â&#x20AC;? Peter is a retired engineer and Allisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s background is social work. The Adamovitsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; house, which Peter estimates weighs 28 tons, took close to six hours to move from the area of Ogilvy and Blair in the Nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Capital to 240 Sarah St. in Carleton Place. The house, built in the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;50s, was purchased from another builder. The deal closed May 1. The structure marks the first â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;recycledâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; house for Carleton Park Ave Homes Inc., and the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first major project. Peter and Allison believe house recycling is certainly more cost effective than buying a current home, plus it keeps historical homes intact instead of torn down. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recycling at its best,â&#x20AC;? said Peter.

Mississippi Valley Textile Museum’s latest exhibit features the textiles created by Martha Moenig, who created sportswear for the Toronto store Ada MacKenzie Ltd. The exhibit, which launches Aug. 3, includes artifacts, drawings and photographs on Moenig’s life as a designer.

Newest MVTM exhibit celebrates designer’s life and legacy in textiles News – In September 2011, a beloved mother and grandmother passed away in Almonte at the age of 93. She left her family not only a legacy of love and caring, but also a rich body of work that will be shared with the public at the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum (MVTM) from Aug. 3 to Oct. 19. Martha Moenig came to Canada in the early 1950s with her husband and son, bringing with her the education and skills that she had acquired growing up in Germany. She settled in Toronto, where she began to work on a

freelance basis, designing and producing garments and specialty items. She was soon creating sweaters and cardigans for Toronto’s well-known Ada MacKenzie Ltd., one of the first stores in Canada to offer sportswear for women designed to be functional as well as fashionable. The quality of Moenig’s work became widely recognized and she was soon also designing and embellishing sweaters, handkerchiefs, tablecloths, pillows and other items for the fashion leaders of Toronto society.

The exhibit ‘Biografika’, is a celebration of her life and the extraordinary and beautiful work that she created. It features drawings, artifacts, and photographs that shed light on the life of a talented young woman making her way in her newly adopted country. A vernissage will be held Saturday, Aug. 3 from 2 to 4 p.m. The MVTM is located at 3 Rosamond St. E. in Almonte. It is open from Tuesday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Submitted by the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum.

This little beetle is a highly destructive insect native to the Asian Continent. It was discovered in the Windsor/ Detroit corridor in 2002. It has since destroyed millions of trees. It was discovered in the City of Ottawa in 2008. Since that time the City of Ottawa, Leeds and Grenville have been quarantined and the movement of ash wood and wood products is prohibited. The City of Ottawa removed 800 affected trees in the winter of 2011. The handling of ash trees that have been affected by emerald ash borer can take special techniques. Gardiner Tree Trimming & Removal Ltd. strives to use the safest methods possible to remove dead and dangerous trees of all species. Our methods use equipment such as a crane, bucket or excavator as the job requires. Gardiner Tree Trimming & Removal Ltd. offers TreeAzin® Systemic Insecticide. It is an injectable insecticide formulated with azadirachtin, an extract of neem tree seeds (not neem oil). TreeAzin is registered by Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) (PCP 30559). Ontario’s Ministry of the Environment (MOE) scheduled TreeAzin® as a class 4 pesticide or “least hazardous that is

commercial”, with a class 11 active ingredient. TreeAzin is exempt from Ontario’s Cosmetic Pesticide Ban Act.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR: EAB is a slender, elongate insect about 1/3 - 1/2 inch long. It is widest just behind the head, gradually tapering back to the abdomen. It is a bright iridescent green to copper-green color, often with a copper colored area behind the head. Its body underneath the wings is a purplish-magenta color. Trees typically are killed in two to four years. When trees are first attacked by EABs, the symptoms are inconspicuous and hard to notice. By the end of the second year, thinning foliage and dieback in the crown begins to be

apparent. By the third year, there is severe dieback and little foliage. Ash can tolerate small numbers of EAB larvae but trees are girdled and killed when populations become more numerous. When the adults emerge, they create small, 1/8 inch D-shaped exit holes that are characteristic of this insect, although they can be hard to see. If you were to remove the bark on the trunk of a tree showing these symptoms, you should also find the larval galleries. Woodpecker attacks on ash could also indicate the presence of emerald ash borers.

August 1-7, 2013 is World Breastfeeding Week By Anne-Marie Carter-McAuslan and Rachel Sutton World Breastfeeding Week 2013—August 1 to 7—reminds reminds midwives, physicians and nurses of the importance of assisting women to be successful in their breastfeeding relationship with their babies. The theme of the week is Breastfeeding Support: Close to Mothers and it encourages support systems, including peer counselling. Information and a pledge to promote the peer counseling is available at www. Midwives at Almonte General Hospital work hard to encourage breastfeeding, but support a woman’s chosen feeding method, including breastfeeding, pumping breast milk and formula feeding. Clinic visits by midwives in the prenatal period inform women and their families about the benefits of breastfeeding and cover normal newborn behaviour and breastfeeding progression. Hospital and home postpartum visits provide positive support with referral to Lactation Consultants, if required. In the past, ample support was available for other forms of infant feeding, but little was available for

breastfeeding. Breastfeeding statistics collected by the midwives show a greater than 90 per cent success rate of exclusively breastfeeding at six weeks of age. Support for breastfeeding comes also from Public Health Nurses, hospital phone consultation from nurses and La Leche League (a volunteer support program) Almonte General Hospital and the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit promote successful breastfeeding by discouraging mother and baby separation and encouraging skin-to-skin contact. This

helps the mom and baby to learn nursing cues and get to know each other. Smell is one of a newborn’s most acute senses. Even after a Caesarian section, parents are encouraged to have the baby skin-to-skin, either with mother or the mother’s partner. Skin-to-skin also encourages temperature regulation and bonding. Breastfeeding within an hour of birth is promoted by hospital staff and midwives. Breastfeeding is the ideal choice for infant feeding. Even feeding pumped breastmilk is excellent, giving the baby many antibodies and protection against gastrointestinal or respiratory infections, and as well as many other well researched benefits for both mother and infant. Ultimately, the most important factor in a woman’s breastfeeding success is for the mother to receive positive support and help from other mothers, family members, and health professionals. Anne-Marie Carter-McAuslan and Rachel Sutton are Registered Midwives who practise with Ottawa Valley Midwives. They have privileges at Almonte General Hospital.

Overcoming the cycle of grief: cross-country ride to fight stigma of suicide By DESMOND DEVOY

News – No matter how far, or how fast, they cycle, they can never outcycle the pain. A national, fundraising cycle rolled through the county last month to break the stigma of suicide, and a cathartic cross-country trip, which stopped at lot 38 at Last Duel Park July 12, had one simple goal, apart from the financial: to save at least one other family from having to go through what they had to go through. Ginny and Kerry Dennehy lost their son, 21-year-old Kelty, to suicide, stemming from a deep depression, in 2001. In 2009, their pain was doubled when their daughter Riley, then 23, was killed in a fall while travelling in Asia. The duo had just completed one of the shorter legs of their crosscountry journey, about 100 km from Kingston to Perth’s Last Duel Park. On other days, they average between 140 and 160 km per day. The cycle, to raise funds in memory of their late son, is to raise money for the foundation founded in his memory, the Kelty Patrick Dennehy Foundation, left Whistler, B.C., on Mother’s Day, before heading east, through 65 communities, towards Cape Spear, Newfoundland, in the hopes of raising $2 million on their “Enough is Enough,” cycle. Their

They have also heard from many families who are also members of the unfortunate club of those who have lost loved ones to suicide. “That’s good,” said Ginny of the work done by the parents of the suicide victim Brett Pearson, and the annual Brett’s Walk in Carleton Place, which raises funds and awareness of suicide. While the names, and faces, of the lost, may be different, from different economic groups and parts of the country, like the Pearsons, the type of grief remains the same. “Those who suffer from mental illness, they feel that they are alone, no one understands them,” said Ginny. “And no one cares.” At this point, Kerry jumps in – Photo by DESMOND DEVOY “and they do care.” While some suicides have gar- Ginny and Kerry Dennehy atop their bicycles at Last Duel Park in Perth on Friday, July 12, nered national attention, like Jamie in front of The Table’s community food garden. Hubley’s death in Ottawa, and Paris Jackson’s suicide attempt, some celebrities have now gone public with their battles with depression. British actor, writer, and game show host Stephen Fry, admitted recently to having attempted suicide twice, the most recent incident, just last year, in which he was saved by his director. Looking at himself on film during tapings of his popular game show, he admitted that he often may seem to be smiling and cracking jokes, but all he can think inside is how much he

aim is to raise $2 million as part of the $6.7 million needed to create Kelty Mental Health Resource Centres in every province and territory in Canada. They have raised $700,000 so far on this trip, and they are confident that they will reach their goal. “It’s a bit of a lofty goal, but if you don’t have a lofty goal, what is the point?” asked Ginny. Already, they have helped raise $5 million to combat mental illness, financing projects at the Lions Gate Hospital in North Vancouver, and building a Kelty centre at the B.C. Children’s Hospital in Vancouver. They are putting in applications to tap into some of the annual Movember money as well. “This year, the founder, an Australian, decided that 60 per cent (of Movember proceeds) should stay with prostate cancer, but the rest should stay with men’s mental health,” said Kerry. The duo are looking at Toronto, Calgary, and Winnipeg as possible homes for Kelty centres. “All of the money raised will stay in each province,” said Ginny. “It won’t go back to BC.” They have been garnering not only financial support, but moral support as well, whether it is the truck driver who parked his rig by the side of the road to give them a $20 bill, or the woman who flagged down their RV to given them $100.

wants to die. “He’s trying to mask it,” said Ginny, hearing of Fry’s story. Her son too masked his grief. Even with these big name revelations, for Ginny and Kerry, there is still a lot of stigma to contend with. “It’s not being hidden as much,” admits Ginny. “Some (victim’s families) choose not to talk about it and I believe that it is everybody’s prerogative. You have to be sensitive…that it is still a bit of a taboo.” Kerry has heard of some more traditional Catholic priests who refuse to perform a funeral mass for suicide victims, but “a lot of priests now think nothing of it,” said Kerry. In the old days, “the corpses (of suicide victims) were piled up at the crossroads. It was the coward’s way out. I know damn well that my son went out like a lion,” Kerry said adamantly. “He could

answer,” said Ginny. “Our son was very well centred, happy, goofy, lots of friends, (into) athletics, loved Christmas morning,” said Kerry. “You know that there is something wrong, when he is crying on your shoulder, saying he doesn’t care about his sports, his friends.” At moments such as that, Kerry advises asking some direct, but necessary questions, like: are you thinking of hurting yourself? Killing yourself? For those who are in the midst of the darkness of depression, Ginny advises them to remember that “you can’t control what has happened, but you can control how you deal with it.” The campaign is not just about raising money though. It is about connecting those in need with immediate help, which can be accessed through the foundation’s web site,

not go on. It was unbearable for him.” “No one will ever understand my depression,” wrote Kelty. “And that was totally wrong,” replied his mother, sitting in the RV in a small town in eastern Ontario, years later. Between the ages of 15 to 25, “all of your losses are magnified,” said Kerry, so that “is why intervention is so important.” He pointed to the likes of U.S. President Abraham Lincoln and British Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill, who were able to create their tools for dealing with their inner demons, during times of war. “(Kelty) he was only 17,” said Ginny. “He didn’t have the tools in his kit bag.” No parent ever wants to think that their child might do something as drastic, rash, and hurtful as committing suicide, but “don’t be afraid to ask those tough questions…that they (parents) don’t want to ask, because they don’t want to hear the Even with the online component, people will still come knocking on their front door at all hours of the day and night looking for help. “People who are depressed or have kids who are falling off of the wagon… they need help right away. This is kind of a one-stop shop,” said Ginny. “When you call there is always a person there, no recordings.” Being outdoors all the time, they are at the mercy of the elements but they have been quite lucky in terms of the worst of the weather, missing both the rains that flooded Calgary, and Toronto too. “We have dodged the rain, all that Toronto stuff,” said Ginny. “We were in Hamilton. We totally dodged that.” They had been due to speak at the Toronto Cricket Club the next day and the night of the big deluge, the power went out at the

club. They did encounter snow however – yes, snow in May, near Whistler, in the Rocky Mountains. The two are joined on their journey by nephews, Quinn and Keenan Dennehy, during Whitehorse, Yukon, who take care of RV maintenance and driving. “It’s like having a new family for a few months,” said Kerry. “It’s fulfilling to travel together…and argue like a family,” he said, a smile flitting across his lips. They are decked out in their cycling gear still, looking like Tour de France contestants. One would not hazard the guess that they had only seriously taken up cycling just two years ago. “It fills a bit of a hole for us,” said Kerry of the trip. “We have a duty to talk about it and, let’s face it, time does heal.” “You never get over it,” added Ginny. “You integrate these changes into your life.”

An open letter to all Canadians Bell Canada is taking the unusual step of writing to all Canadians today. As the nation’s longest-serving telecommunications company, established shortly after Confederation in 1880, we would like to ensure Canadians clearly understand a critical situation impacting their world-leading wireless industry. Verizon Communications, a $120-billion US telecommunications giant with 100 million wireless customers, is considering entering the Canadian market. A company of this scale certainly doesn’t need handouts from Canadians or special regulatory advantages over Canadian companies. But that is exactly what they get in the new federal wireless regulations. Bell welcomes any competitor, but they should compete on a level playing field. Fair competition is something Canadians demand and something Bell expects too after 133 years of investment in delivering world-class communications services to Canadians.

Unintended advantages for American giants: How we got here The federal government has recently taken an activist role in regulating Canada’s wireless industry. That includes giving various benefits to small startup wireless competitors. With Ottawa’s help, the new companies have become part of the vigorously competitive Canadian wireless marketplace. But the government inadvertently left holes in the wireless rules that would give big US corporations the same extraordinary advantages as the small startups. And all Canadians are on the hook to pay. Verizon has said it’s looking at taking advantage of this unique opportunity. We do not believe a US company 4x the size of Canada’s entire wireless industry combined requires special help from Canada. It’s profoundly unfair to all Canadians, and Ottawa needs to close the loopholes.

3 loopholes in the rules Under federal regulations originally designed for startup competitors, Verizon would actually get these benefits… 1. Verizon would be able to buy twice as much of Canada’s airwaves as Canadian companies like Bell can in an upcoming auction of wireless spectrum – the airwaves that carry your calls and data. These airwaves are a public resource, and access to them is critical to providing you with world-leading wireless services. When Ottawa auctions off Canada’s airwaves for use by telecommunications companies, it gets significant revenues. These are public funds. It is inappropriate for our own government to essentially reserve a public resource for a company like Verizon to the detriment of Canadian companies. In doing so, the government will also reduce federal auction revenue significantly – by potentially hundreds of millions of dollars. A loophole that gives US companies access to twice as much of our airwaves and at a lower cost is an unfair advantage, paid for by Canadians. 2. They get to piggyback on the networks of Canadian carriers wherever they don’t want to invest and build their own. Under the rules, Verizon would have the right to offer wireless service using the advanced networks funded by Canadian companies and built by Canadian workers. Industry experts say a Verizon wouldn’t need to build its own network throughout Canada, invest in Canada’s rural communities, or support Canadian jobs like Canadian wireless companies do. Instead, they would concentrate on a few big urban centres, forcing Canadian carriers to do the same while potentially cutting jobs and slashing costs in order to compete. 3. Verizon can acquire smaller Canadian competitors – but Bell and other Canadian wireless companies can’t even try. American players like Verizon can buy up new Canadian wireless companies like Wind Mobile and Mobilicity at cut-rate prices – including their existing spectrum holdings previously subsidized by Canadian taxpayers. Yet Canadian carriers like Bell are restricted from competing to acquire these Canadian startups, even if the new companies want it to happen. That means Verizon gets them for below-market value. What did Ottawa get from the United States in return for this unprecedented access to Canada? Nothing. No reciprocity in the US for Canadian companies. In fact, can you even imagine Canadian wireless companies getting preferred access to New York, Los Angeles or Chicago?

3 straightforward ways to close the loopholes The Bell team is ready to compete with anyone for your business on a level playing field. But big US companies taking advantage of rules designed to help Canadian startups is just not on the level. To get wireless policy back on track, we propose that… 1. Canadian wireless carriers should be able to bid for the same amount of Canada’s airwaves as Americans can. 2. US operators entering Canada should roll out wireless service across the country, just as Canadian companies have. 3. If a small Canadian wireless company seeks a buyer, Canadian carriers should be allowed to bid, just as the Americans can. US giants don’t need special help from the Canadian government, and Canadians shouldn’t have to pay their way into the country. Instead, let’s give Canada’s own communications companies a fair chance to compete with them. Sincerely,

George Cope, President and CEO, Bell Canada and BCE

We’re not the only ones concerned “Why would Ottawa create a policy environment that favours a U.S. telecom giant and deliberately trashes the shareholders of the major Canadian wireless players?” Terence Corcoran, Financial Post, June 27, 2013

“But there is no basis for the Commission to give certain large companies a regulatory hand-out… so they can acquire spectrum… at a substantial discount over the price that would otherwise be received.” Verizon, Regulatory filing to the FCC on U.S. Incentive Auctions, March 12, 2013

“In fact a report published last week commissioned by the CRTC suggested a similar conclusion (that wireless prices have come down meaningfully since 2008) – so we’re not entirely sure where Industry Canada is getting its data about the market not being competitive. Then again, the government wouldn’t let a little data get in the way of a good lever for getting votes, and that’s clearly what is going on here.” Bob Bek, CIBC World Markets, July 12, 2013

“The perception that Canadian prices are high relative to other jurisdictions has been seized upon by the government as an invitation to intervene and deliver lower prices. But the perception is false and the invitation is illogical.” Dr. Jeffrey Church and Andrew Wilkins of the University of Calgary, The Globe and Mail, July 8, 2013

“…the federal government’s anything-goes market interventions to support a fourth carrier have so gerrymandered the rules to favour Verizon sweeping in that any investor seriously interested in buying shares in Canadian telecom companies should be spooked.” Sean Silcoff, The Globe and Mail, June 27, 2013

“This will mean significant layoffs which could easily trump the hiring to be done by Verizon, which besides a needed presence in retail outlets, should be able to initially handle a lot of functions (marketing, billing) from the United States.” Adam Shine, National Bank Financial, June 26, 2013

“Unlike the national incumbents in Canada, we wonder if Verizon has a strategy for wireless broadband in rural markets, a key political consideration for the current Conservative Government.” Dvai Ghose, Canaccord Genuity, July 2, 2013

Jackson Homes Golf Tournament raises $11,500 to help Carleton Place and District CORE Youth Services fight homelessness and hunger Golfers hit the greens of the Scottish Glen Golf Course on July 11th for the Jackson Homes Golf Tournament in support of the Carleton Place and District CORE Youth Services. The weather was perfect for the 6th annual fundraising tournament, organized by local Royal LePage Real Estate Broker Jeff McMaster. Funds raised from this year’s event will go towards CORE’s Homelessness Support Program and REAL Food Program. These programs that assist hundreds of young people each year are aimed at addressing the basic needs of young people in our community. These programs are not funded by any one source, and the number of youth that access the programs definitely identifies the growing need.

The Homelessness Support Program offers young people assistance with finding emergency shelter and safe housing and provides the basic necessities such as hygiene kits, clothing, basic household items as well as support to address their health and financial situations. Last years golf tournament, in conjunction with a grant awarded by the Realtors Care Foundation provided financial support for these programs as well as allowed for improved access to services for homeless and low-income youth living independently. The REAL Food Program offers young people opportunities to learn about nutrition, kitchen and food safety, low budget shopping, budgeting and cooking, while acquiring life skills working as a

team in our CIBC community kitchen. The young people who take part in this program are provided with daily hot, healthy, nutritious meals, which are the foundation to good health and well being. Golfers enjoyed a round of golf with a cart, an awesome BBQ lunch, prizes, an auction and lots of fun. This event would not be possible without the generous support of local businesses that sponsored the event, and donated prizes and auction items. A big thanks to Jackson Homes, our platinum sponsor and all of our volunteers including Meghan Link-Lepine, Jessica Bandy, Tavis Balkwill, Melanie Smith, Kelly and Jeff McMaster and our gracious hosts at the Scottish Glen, Carol and Bart Bennett.

A Special THANK YOU to all the people and businesses that supported the Jackson Homes Golf Tournament! Please support the people who supported us!

Basketball festival returns Aug. 10 Sports – On Saturday, Aug. 10, the 21st annual Naismith 3 on 3 Basketball Festival hopes to attract new and returning teams to the streets of the historic basketball community of Almonte. This year’s event will benefit local children and youth, funding equipment and fee subsidies for all levels of play. The town lays claim to basketball inventor Dr. James Naismith, who was born in Almonte in 1861 and, as a 30year old professor teaching in Springfield, Massachusetts, made shooting hoops what it is today – a sport played in more than 200 countries. The Naismith Basketball Association will be running the annual 3 on 3 basketball tournament this year, with plans to contin-

ue to grow and expand upon its original success. The event will host a main court with bleacher seating for its final games to create a unique basketball experience for the players and fans. “The 3 on 3 tournament is a great event originally started by my good friend Kory Hallas,” says Kevin Hickey, Naismith Basketball Association president. “We are looking forward to reviving the event and getting our basketball families and entire community involved for a day of competitive fun. It’s a great way to celebrate basketball and Dr. James Naismith’s invention.” All teams are guaranteed at least three games, and more for those who move on to finals. Basketball enthusiasts of

all ages are encouraged to register early to avoid disappointment. The Naismith Basketball Association is currently accepting registrations until Aug. 3. To register, visit the website at Elementary and high school teams and men’s and ladies’ teams with varying levels of experience will enjoy the warm, welcoming ambiance of “The Friendly Town”. Between games, participants are encouraged to drop by the life-sized statue of James Naismith for a team photo, visit Almonte’s many scenic areas, or participate in PuppetsUp!, another unique festival showcasing 10 professional local and international puppet troupes performing their magic that weekend.

Amateur boxer Lucas Rowe, a Carleton Place native, is currently participating in the Ringside World Championships, an internationally renowned tournament taking place in Missouri July 31 to Aug. 3.

Carleton Place boxer takes on world, gives back to community Sports – Amateur boxer Lucas Rowe, age 24, is fighting for our province in and out of the boxing ring. As an elite welterweight amateur boxer, coach and community ally, the Carleton Place native will be fighting in Kansas City, Missouri at an internationally renowned tournament called RingsideWorld Championships (July 31 to Aug. 3). This past March, Lucas won his bouts and was named Best Male Boxer at the Ontario Boxing Association’s Golden Gloves competition. He now will represent Boxing by Syd gym in Kitchener at the Ringside tournament. Ringside is the largest amateur boxing tournament in the world, taking place at the Independence Events Center. Over four days, 1,500 boxers will compete for titles in their respective weight classes. His bouts at Ringside will be a strong indicator for how he will perform at the upcoming nationals fight in Langley, BC this September. The sport of amateur boxing requires discipline, training and leadership, skills which Rowe has translated into life lessons that he shares with youth. He

inspires local teenagers to do positives things in their lives and within their community. His passion for youth development sparked when he co-founded an outreach boxing program, with “project InReach” in early 2012. It is there that at-risk youths learn life lessons like discipline and leadership in an active manner, through boxing and training. Rowe joined the Leadership Waterloo Region program in 2013 which helped him develop his skills to work more effectively with organizations that focus on youth empowerment in the region. Alongside that, he helped organize the 2013 TEDxYouth@Waterloo event, as the co-team lead for the youth and education outreach department. When asked about how he ties his boxing experiences to the community Rowe says, “I am a boxing coach, and I am a life coach. A lot of my work and development in the ring, I take to the community. I use my coaching personality to work with people. That’s how I move the relationships forward, and move our community forward.”

Carleton Place teen Shane Billings on five-week go-kart winning streak Sports – Shane Billings, a 17year-old from Carleton Place, has had an exciting 2013 go-kart racing season so far! Not only did he get his first win, but now a five-week winning streak has put him in the lead for points so far this year. “It’s been an amazing year so far and the guys that I race with are great. We put on a fantastic show with great determination and sportsmanship!” says Billings, who races every Wednesday night at Brockville Ontario Speedway. “My goal is to win the track championship this year especially when my ultimate goal is to move up to race cars next year. It would be a great way to finish my karting career!” he adds. In January of this year, Billings graduated from Race101 racing school in North Carolina where he had obtained a scholarship. He had attended four extra long weekend sessions in the last year, plus bi-weekly Skype classroom lessons, and had many projects/assignments to complete.

LARGE ITEM PICK UP Any HOUSEHOLD garbage that does not meet the size limitation of 1.5 meters by 60 cm by 60 cm and/or exceeds 15 kg is considered a LARGE ITEM. Items that are not collectible in the regular garbage stream by virtue of their nature are still not collectible i. e. construction material, rocks, brush, household hazardous waste etc. Examples of large items include couches, televisions, mattresses, appliances, carpet etc. Items such as refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, dehumidifiers contain coolant – these items must be drained and tagged by a licenced technician.
