NEW CAFÉ FUSES ART, COFFEE

I Love You

HOLLIE PRATT-CAMPBELL hpratt-campbell@ metroland.com Mill Street in Almonte just got a little brighter - literally - with the opening of Gaslight Cafe and Sign Gallery on July 10. Scott and Karyn Adamson, the couple behind the café, moved to Almonte from downtown Ottawa five years ago after falling in love with the town. "We would take daytrips out here all the time and we really just liked the feeling of Almonte," Karyn explains. "[Mill Street] with all the little boutique shops is something I'm really interested in, and I love how communityoriented and super supportive and friendly everybody is." The move also allowed Scott, a neon sign artist, to have a workshop to make his signature, vinSee COUPLE, page 4

Basketball fever hit the streets of Almonte Aug. 10 during the annual Naismith 3x3 Basketball Tournament. The event took over the Almonte Community Centre and a portion of Bridge Street to accommodate the 72 teams registered in the youth and adult divisions. An added bonus for spectators this year was the Naismith 3x3 Canada Quest regional qualifier inside the community centre. The winner heads on to the national final in

Montreal in September, with a chance to shoot for a spot in the 2020 Olympics where 3x3 will be a demonstration sport. According to event chair Karen Milligan with the Naismith Basketball Association, they partnered with Canada Basketball for the qualifier, which saw six teams competed in round-robin play for the elite division title. A foursome from Montreal claimed the championship. Others participating were from Kitchener, Mississauga, Hamilton and Ottawa. "It's been great for us,

tage-style signs. Scott has been selling the signs commercially for the past five years, custom-making pieces for a variety of clients from bars and restaurants to Tweed. Yet he yearned to take his work to the next level creatively. "I had all these ideas, but never got a chance to do them ... I really wanted to focus on my own ideas, my own artwork." He also needed a place to show his work. "What's happened is everybody wants to see his work and come and visit, and because it's custom there's not an inventory," Karyn explains. Thus, the idea of a gallery/café emerged. "Karen's always wanted a café and I've always wanted to do more artistic ori-

The café focuses on coffee, especially espresso style beverages, and features a light, simple menu of breakfast and lunch fare - bagels, HFT doughnuts, sandwiches, etc. "We're a coffee shop, not a restaurant," Karyn emphasizes. "I think there is a big difference there." She hopes to switch up the sandwich menu frequently. "But we'll also keep some on mainstay, like a grilled cheese, a Reuben and smoked salmon on a bagel." Gaslight is also licensed, and the Adamsons hope to open the café some evenings and bring in live

music. "I hope people will pop in and look at the artwork, try our coffee, maybe have a sandwich," says Scott. "We're just trying to build a really cool space for people to hang out in Almonte." The first "Gaslight Session" kicks off this Friday night, Aug. 9 with the Jimmy Triton Band. The café will reopen at 6 p.m. and the music will start at 8 p.m. Regular hours are Wednesday to Saturday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sunday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Gaslight is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Ashley Kulp/Torstar (From top) The Shooting Stars took on Valley Pride in 3x3 action outside the Almonte Community Centre Saturday afternoon. A portion of Bridge Street and the community centre parking lot were transformed into basketball courts for th event. In 3x3 Canada Quest qualifier action Saturday afternoon, the Almonte and Montreal teams face off against each other.

Hudson took on the Montreal team Saturday afternoon, but would lose the game 22-9. Offering the elite division is "great for young kids, especially, to see this and know there is a path forward if they really enjoy the 3x3 game." The Naismith Basketball Association is a family affair for Milligan, whose daughters both rose up through the ranks. She's been involved in Naismith Basketball for close to nine years and her daughter Sara was in charge of the registration platforms for the Aug. 10 event. "From my personal perspective, I got involved so we could be involved with our kids. We coached them in the league and then through this event ... if you spend that much time with your kids, you know what they're doing," Milligan commented. She also paid tribute to the large network of volunteers who help make the Naismith 3x3 Basketball Tournament a success each year. "There's a big committee of people who have worked really hard to put this. It requires a big team," she said. Milligan admitted the Canada Quest involvement and Toronto Raptors NBA championship win has brought a renewed interest in basketball to the association. "Even interest in our regular season basketball is at an all-time high, which is great," she stated. "For kids early in development, it's great for them to see that if they work really hard, they can advance to a high level."

FOOD BANKS ROOT FOR MORE PRODUCE IN GROW-OFF FEW MONTHS LEFT TO DONATE SURPLUS VEGGIES IN COMMUNITY CHALLENGE ASHLEY KULP akulp@metroland.com Shaun McLaughlin has a few words for Lanark County communities: If you have extra produce, "lettuce" know. The Mississippi Mills resident and former mayor talked up the Great Veggie Grow-Off initiative at Lanark County's community services committee meeting Aug. 7 in Perth. McLaughlin has taken on the role of ambassador of the friendly challenge, established by the Neighbourhood Tomato group, which inspires growers to see who can produce the most for food banks in Smiths Falls and Lanark County.

"The whole reason is that we need to provide healthy, local food for people that face some kind of food insecurity," he said. The four county food banks - The Hunger Stop Lanark County Food Bank (5 Allan Street, Carleton Place), Lanark Highlands Food Pantry (St. Andrew's United Church, Lanark), The Table Community Food Centre (190 Gore Street, Perth), and Smiths Falls Community Food Bank (93 Russell Street East, Smiths Falls), all benefit. "They do a great job helping people and the Great Veggie Grow-Off helps to add highly nutritional, healthy food for people through the spring,

Ashley Kulp/Torstar Great Veggie Grow-Off ambassador Shaun McLaughlin speaks to Lanark County's community services committee Aug. 7 to drum up support for the sixth annual challenge, which launched May 1 and wraps up at Thanksgiving. summer and fall," McLaughlin noted. Approximately 9.7 per

cent (6,925) of people in Leeds, Grenville and Lanark experience food inse-

curity and since it was established in 2014, the Great Veggie Grow-Off is doing its part to decrease that number. McLaughlin said the first grow-off saw just under 3,000 pounds of food donated, which steadily grew to its best year so far in 2016, of 10,109. That number dropped a bit in the years that followed, but he has high hopes. "This year we're hoping with the really good weather, we can beat that 2016 number," he said. The clock began ticking on this year's grow-off at its May 1 launch and it traditionally wraps up at Thanksgiving. With prime harvesting season around the corner and a few months left in the challenge, McLaughlin hoped a reminder would spur communities on.

We’ve got a newsletter for that.

"The process begins to speed up at this time of year as people begin to harvest their surplus veggies in their gardens. August to September are the best months for this," he commented. Mississippi Mills has claimed the challenge five years in a row and he wants to see another community step up. "There's plenty of time in this year to get food rolling in and to get your community to donate ... I think you want to break that streak and have others get a chance," he commented. If you have surplus produce you'd like to donate to the Great Veggie Grow-Off challenge, all you need to do is drop it off at your local food bank. Be sure to mention it's for the grow-off so the produce is added to your community's tally.

Up until 10 years ago, the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 192 in Carleton Place held an annual Town of Carleton Place Scottish Heritage Band Tattoo. It was a real crowd pleaser that ran for a total of 16 years and included several pipe bands and highland dancers. In fact, the first Scottish Heritage Band Tattoo was held in Carleton Place in 1994, when 22 members of the Comrie and District Pipe and Drum Band visited their twinning community of Carleton Place for a 10-day visit. So, after a 10-year hiatus, Branch 192 is pleased to once again have the sights and sounds of the pipes and drums and highland dancing return to Carleton Place, to bring back a wee bit of our Scottish heritage, on Sunday, Sept. 15. It is also most appropriate that this is being held during the 200th anniversary of the Town of Carleton Place. It is most unfortunate that some pipe bands in the Ottawa Valley and surrounding area have folded over the past few years. However, it is also encouraging to note that the former Almonte Legion Branch 240 Pipe Band has now been revived following a hiatus of 14 years. It was through the hard work and dedication of their band manager, Neil MacLeod, who is the Almonte Legion branch Sgt-At-Arms, and their pipe major, Jenny Putinski, for getting the band revived. Jenny is a well-known and highly qualified piper in the Ottawa area and has been involved playing with other pipe bands in the past. She is also currently a member of the RCMP Pipes and Drums in Ottawa. Several other pipers and drummers who had previously played in other - now dissolved pipe bands in the Ottawa Valley have also joined this band. Since this band is re-forming, they are also looking for some much-needed funds for band equipment. So, on Sunday, Sept. 15, Branch 192 will host a fundraising Highland Tattoo on their grounds, with all proceeds going to assist the pipe band. Although there will be no admission charge, a collection will be taken to assist the band. This event is a community event and is open for the general public to enjoy. The day's activities will also include highland dancing by dancers from the Rosemary Breman School of Dance. Rosemary Breman has operated her dance studio for 38 years and her highland dancers were involved throughout the 16 years of

WHY REPORT ON THE OPIOID CRISIS? ARNPRIOR OVERDOSES SHOCKED US INTO ACTION, SAYS REPORTER DEREK DUNN DEREK DUNN Column

Agreeing to be interviewed by a reporter requires a leap of faith and a level of courage regardless the topic. For the opioid addict loss of trust is among the most insidious aspects of their reality. Anyone who is a slave to fentanyl or other narcotics is cloaked in distrust: dealers only want your money; other addicts only want your drugs. Paranoia, hostility, and alienation become standard. Add to this the general public's stigma surrounding the recently proclaimed opioid crisis. (One study says 10 people die from illicit drug overdoses every day in Canada.) It is a moral failing, the logical extreme of hedonistic pursuit. Many look away rather than rudely express their belief: 'You have nobody to blame but yourself.' I've produced a few stories on the topic lately, ever since OPP announced five Arnprior overdoses in a period. It shocked a few into action. A business owner kindly organized an overdose-prevention workshop. A survivor bravely shared their story with me. Several shared their concerns about family members or simply their fellow residents. Most of those conversations couldn't be "used" in stories. The information was provided as deep background (mean-

ing they provided facts that I would need to independently verify) or off record. After two decades in journalism, my adherence to J-school training has diminished. Yes, off record only applies when the reporter agrees. And the reason for going off record must be compelling; I'm not on the punch-clock to engage in gossip. Still - a reporter (often a stranger to sources) is a sounding board or a cathartic outlet. It helps them, but also helps to educate the reporter - a person uniquely positioned to reach large audiences. I've learned and shared with our readers much about the opioid crisis. The vast majority of addicts, for instance, harbour some deep-seeded trauma. Sexual violence and abuse during childhood are common causes. There can be a genetic component to addiction. Hence the 'nobody to blame but yourself' is demonstrably wrong. Add in societal influences such as advertising, along with pain-killer addiction caused by hard manual work (a Marxist would have much to say about the brutalities of capitalism). It becomes obvious that most addicts are victims to be helped through mental health services, not criminals to be locked up in expensive jails. The plan is to keep writing on this topic. There is much left to learn and share. As a reporter at this media outlet, Derek Dunn covers a wide range of stories including mental health and court news.

LETTERS & COMMENTARY EDUCATION MINISTER SAYS PROVINCE COMMITTED TO STUDENT SUCCESS I am committed to the success of our students and my mission is to ensure that our young people can develop the skills they need in a modern economy and help them find goodpaying jobs in Ontario. In the Ford government's first budget, we announced an investment of $700 million more in education for next year than the previous government committed to for this school year. This represents the largest investment in public education's history, underscoring our commitment to young people in Leeds-GrenvilleThousand Islands and Rideau Lakes and LanarkFrontenac-Kingston. Our government has increased funding to the Upper Canada District School Board this year, with over $342 million to be provided to help students get the crucial support they need

and ensure their continued success now and into the future. This increase also represents the largest allocation in the Upper Canada board's history. We recognize that many students face mental health adversity, and we take that responsibility seriously to help them in their time of need. I am proud to stand with Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing Steve Clark as the government more than doubled mental health funding, and has increased funding for our students with special needs to the highest levels - for Frenchlanguage programming and for transportation. Our overall mission is student achievement - it must be the top priority for our school boards and communities. Students should not have to suffer because of poor administrative decisions by school boards. While school boards make their own decisions on staffing, class offerings and resource allocation,

we do expect them to put the urgent needs of students first. That includes mental health supports in the classroom. We are consistently making improvements to ensure student achievement is the priority and focus of all we do. Our government is building on our plan - Education that Works for You by introducing new measures that will help our students be leaders in the modern economy and gain the skills they need to find good jobs right here in Ontario. We are equipping students with the skills they need, including an emphasis on the skilled trades and STEM-related disciplines. We will continue to focus our efforts on ensuring the success of all Ontario students, so they can go through the journey of learning with confidence that they can obtain goodpaying jobs.

2014 2014 Desmond Devoy/Torstar Lanark Lodge is facing critical upgrades to its mechanical and engineering systems, which will be included as part of Lanark County council's 2020 budget deliberations. vator is needed for B corridor at a quote of $122,883. "We'll continue to prepare an estimate on what it would cost to repair that elevator and provide a report for next year," Bingley commented. The electrical generator for the emergency power distribution system is also beyond its life expectancy and could cost $250,000 or $10,000 for a rental. "There are no replacement parts for it and we had a big repair for it last year and under legislation we do need a generator in place within three hours," she explained, noting she isn't recommending it be replaced, but a rental could suffice. Lanark County Warden Richard Kidd (Beckwith reeve) suggested the generator be looked at for the 2020 budget as it could be moved to a new building. Other issues include an upgrade to the now obsolete electrical fire alarm system ($70,000 for fire panel); four new air handling units ($10,000 each) and five condensers ($10,000 each); backflow prevention, and replacement of copper piping in the water lines (cost to be determined). With all the work pro-

posed, Coun. John Fenik (Perth mayor) wondered about a contingency plan for the residents. "Will we have to move the residents out of the building while this goes on?" Any project done at the lodge must receive Ministry of Health and Long Term Care approval, Bingley said, and she doesn't expect any residents would need to be relocated. "We have to submit a work plan so as not to disrupt residents," she added. "It's all centred around minor disruptions." Coun. Ed McPherson (Perth deputy mayor) questioned why the work couldn't be phased in over five years to remain in the building for another 10 to 15 years. "As far as the building goes, by 2025, the ministry requires us to be an A home and the work needed has shown we need a new home to meet that," explained chief administrative officer Kurt Greaves. He said a delegation from the county will speak to the ministry at the Aug. 18 to 21 Association of Municipalities of Ontario's annual conference in Ottawa to seek a five-year extension. "So we'll see how that goes."

With Lanark Lodge facing upwards of $350,000 in critical upgrades, Lanark County council will be forced to make some tough decisions during 2020 budget deliberations. The county's community services committee got a look at a maintenance review of the lodge's mechanical and engineering systems Aug. 7 during a presentation by interim director of long term care, Jennie Bingley. Bingley prepared a plan for the upgrades, which is based on a redevelopment feasibility study done on the longterm care home by engineering firm Vanderwesten & Rutherford Associates Inc. in March. At that point a complete rebuild was recommended at a potential cost of $70 million. "The big take-away from that (study) is every major mechanical and electrical system is past its useful life," she noted. Bingley said preventive action is required as the building, first constructed in 1966, will remain in use until at least 2025. It can serve 163 residents. "We want to make sure council's well aware that we're in a very old building. It is safe, of course, but because lots of the equipment is past its life expectancy, to expect the unexpected," she explained. While immediate repairs of approximately $30,000 is needed for the electronic distribution switchboard, Bingley said the remainder of the critical upgrades will come forward for discussion during the budget process. Infrared testing is being done on all electrical equipment at a cost of $8,900 and she estimated a report would yield $20,000 in repairs. A new mechanical ele-

SADNESS AND HAPPINESS BROUGHT TEARS TO YOUNG MARY SHE WOULD WELL UP AT THE DROP OF A HAT, COLUMNIST MARY COOK RECALLS MARY COOK Column

My sister Audrey said I spent too much time worrying about things that would never happen. That did little to put my mind at ease. Between her telling me that, and Father saying my bladder was too close to my eyes and that's why I cried so much, I came to the conclusion that I was a mess. I was sitting in the grape arbour, my favourite place when I was either sad or

had to think. That day it was a combination of both. I spent little effort pushing the swing with my feet, as I contemplated what both Audrey and Father said more than once. My worry had to do with getting ready to go back to school in a few weeks. I worried that Mother wouldn't have enough money to buy the books I needed, and I would be the only one at the Northcote School sitting at my desk with an empty drawer. Then I started to think of what Father had said about my bladder being close to my eyes and that was why I cried at the drop of a hat. I had no idea what a bladder was, but I gathered it had something to do with tears, so it must have been up around my neck someplace. I felt around my neck, but couldn't feel anything that could be considered unusual.

My thoughts turned to the reasons why I cried so much. I know I cried a lot when I knew it was the day Father would be slaughtering to fill the smoke house. I vowed I would never eat a morsel of meat that came to our table, but of course by the time the meat had been smoked and cured, I had long since forgotten the day of doom, as I called it. I certainly cried when my hateful brother Emerson teased me about my freckles and red hair. I cried because there wasn't a thing I could do about either. And I couldn't remember the many times bad Marguerite had brought me to tears. When she made fun of what I was wearing - made by Mother and not bought at Walker's Store in Renfrew like her fine clothes - or when she reminded me she had a pony and how sad it was that

all we had on our farm were work horses. Yes, that too could bring me to tears. I always seemed to cry when we had relatives come to visit, and they were getting ready to go home. I was sure we would never see them again. Or I would cry because our house would quiet down, and Mother and her relatives singing in harmony at night would be over, and there would be nothing to do but sit at the pine table and look through Eaton's catalogue. That could certainly start the tears flowing. Sometimes, I thought, I cried from sheer joy too. When Miss Crosby praised

me for the neatness of my workbooks or said what a good speller I was, I would have to close my eyes tight to stop the tears of happiness spilling over onto my desk. And often at night, when we were all gathered in the kitchen before bedtime, we kids and Mother at the table doing our own thing, I would look at Father slumped over in the chair by the Findlay Oval. I would see the look of pure exhaustion, his hands limp on the Ottawa Farm Journal, his pipe resting on his chest. I would feel the utmost sadness that he had to work so hard to put food on

our table and clothes on our backs. And the tears would come. Well, there was nothing I could do about my bladder. If God had put it close to my eyes, that's what I would have to live with. Maybe I would grow out of whatever ailed me, and I would stop worrying, or cry at the drop of a hat. Mary is a longtime writer with several books in print and in electronic copies.

McLEISH, June It is with profound sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our wife, mother, grandmother and friend, June McLeish, aged 66, on August 6, 2019, due to cancer. In her final days she was surrounded by family and music just as she wished. She was born July 8, 1953 in St John, NB, and was lovingly chosen by Mary (D) and Omar Kumm (D) to be their child. She had a zest for life and welcomed everyone into her home regardless of race, monetary status, age or sexual preference. She believed in seeing the truth and beauty in all people. She is survived by her loving husband of 22 years, Ian McLeish, her daughters Lana Spicer (Craig), Valerie Beale (Fraser). Eila McLeish, her sons, Christopher Gibson, Wyatt Boucher, and Wilson McLeish. She is also survived by her numerous grandchildren Amber (Dan), Samantha (Mike), Ayden, Maia, Ryan and Tyler and by her great grandchildren Benjamin and Riley. She was the matriarch of our family, a source of constant joy and light, gracing every room she entered with her beautiful and infectious smile. June was a person who gave back to the community and always tried to be the champion of those that were in the most need. She loved animals with a passion, especially cats and her home was always a haven for them. Ulysses, Duffy, Alice and Gizmo will miss her deeply. In lieu of flowers you can send donations to the following organizations: Mel’s Farm for Rescued Animals https://www.melsfarm.ca/ or the Canadian Cancer Society https://www.cancer.ca/en/?region=o n. We will be holding a Celebration of Life on Saturday, September 21, 2019. Time and place to follow. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her. The world was a better place because of her <3

PALMER, John Gray November 6, 1921 - August 7, 2019 After living a full, rich life Gray Palmer (son of the late Mabel and Jack Palmer) quietly slipped away at the GWM Hospital in Perth. His 97 years began and finished at his dearly loved Christie Lake. He had called Mont Jolie Quebec his home during WWII. Irene and Gray resided in Perth to raise their family until retirement led them once more back to Christie Lake. Gray was predeceased by his wife Irene (Poole), his brother Elwood (in his 100th year) and his oldest son Robert. Left to carry on the Palmer tradition are; his daughter-in-law Dawn (late Bob), son Doug and his wife Judy, his grandsons: Shaun (Christine), Cory (Nicole) Derek (Laura) and his great-grandchildren, Amelia, Olivia and Ellie. Gray will also be dearly missed by his stepchildren: Lorna and Wayne and their families, many nieces, nephews and cherished friends. We will forever remember Gray’s quick wit, excellent memory, his carpentry skills and his ability to entertain others with colourful stories of “days gone by”. Gray enlightened many as he regaled tales and actions of early days at Christie Lake. Our family deeply appreciates the efforts of so many who helped Gray fulfill his last wish of living at the lake up until his last few days. As his challenges became greater many agencies offered love, support and compassion to Gray and his family. We are humbled, grateful and beyond thankful to Dr. Gauthier and his staff, dedicated Bayshore caregivers, Perth Home Support, the amazingly supportive Veterans Affairs and last but certainly not least, his dear devoted friends, family and neighbours. Friends and family may pay their respects at the Blair & Son Funeral Home, 15 Gore St. W., Perth on Sunday, August 11, 2019 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. A private family service will take place at Elmwood Cementer at a later date. In remembrance of Gray, donations may be made to the Cancer ‘Wheels of Hope’ or the Great War Memorial Hospital Foundation would be appreciated.

McTAVISH, Dixie Lee 1957 - 2019 With heavy hearts and deep sorrow we announce the death of Dixie McTavish. She was the outstanding and loving mother of Andrew (Kelly) James and Leah (Shawn Kuruneru) James, wife of Kevin James (1978-2010), and proud grandmother of Lydia, Maren, Ruth, and Edison James. The cherished daughter of Ruth and Bob McTavish, and beloved sister of Art and Steve McTavish. Dixie passed away peacefully on Wednesday, August 7, 2019 at Kingston General Hospital with her family by her side. She will be remembered for her generous heart, her kind, gentle spirit, and positive and cheery attitude. She taught us to enjoy the small things in life and to always see the best in every situation, person, and place. Her curious spirit lead her to earn a BA from Queens University and a Bachelor of Education from University of Ottawa. She held careers as a florist, a business owner and partner, and in recent years, an educational assistant with the Upper Canada District School Board. Dixie will be remembered as a creative and energetic soul. She was an avid drawer, gardener, and in her younger years, a painter. Her family will treasure the paintings and drawings that she has left with us from years past. She will also be remembered as a loving mother. Her commitment to her children was profound. It was certainly remembered over the past months when Dixie needed her children’s attention and care. This lesson in love will not be forgotten. Though her time with us was too short, her spirit lives on in her children, grandchildren and all the friends and people she touched along her journey. Our family would like to thank the teams at Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospitals and the Cancer Center of Southeastern Ontario at Kingston General Hospital for their exceptional care. Dixie’s family and friends will gather for a visitation to be held at Blair and Son Funeral home, 15 Gore St. W., Perth on Tuesday, August 13 from 2:00 - 4:00 and 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. A funeral will be held at St. Paul’s United Church, 25 Gore St. W. Perth on Wednesday, August 14th at 10:30 a.m. A reception will follow the service. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Terry Fox Foundation or to the Canadian Cancer Society “Wheels of Hope”.

OPINION

BOOM IN CANADA'S LARGEST CITY TRULY AMAZING TORONTO HAS NOW PASSED CHICAGO AND IS THE FOURTH LARGEST CITY IN NORTH AMERICA, WRITES JEFF MAGUIRE JEFF MAGUIRE Column

Summer is construction season and if you live in an urban community in particular you can no doubt attest to the fact. It seems everywhere we drive at present there are road works underway or some kind of building project is taking place. Still, if you want to see a major construction boom you have only to make the nearly five-hour drive from Eastern Ontario to Toronto. What is happening in Canada's biggest city is

something to behold! In late July my son Craig and I made our annual, summer baseball sojourn to Toronto. This year we watched "Canada's team," the Toronto Blue Jays, play back-to-back games against the Cleveland Indians. Jays split the contests we saw and as always we had an enjoyable father-son baseball experience. As for the city itself, Toronto's current boom is unprecedented. How about this for a statistic! In terms of population Toronto is growing faster than the three fastest growing American cities combined. A survey released earlier this summer shows that

the population boom in Toronto proper (not including the metropolitan area or "GTA") during the 12 months ending last July (2018) was off the charts. Toronto proper grew by 77,435 persons during that time frame. That eclipsed the population growth in the three main US cities in the survey combined. The second fastest growing centre was Phoenix, Arizona with a boost of 25,288 new residents. Toronto's numbers are significantly ahead of major U.S. cities such as New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Boston. During the same reporting period New York City actually lost nearly 40,000 residents. At the same time the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) was the second fastest growing geographical area in the US and Canada.

Statistics Canada says the GTA added 125,300 residents during the same 12month period. That number is just behind the fast growing Texas metropolitan area of Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington. Of course the biggest related problem is how to house all of these new residents. Housing has become the number one problem in Toronto and the GTA, especially affordable housing. In the heart of downtown Toronto the number of streets affected by either the residential and commercial construction boom or by road, sewer, natural gas and a host of other public works projects is staggering. Like so many cities historic Toronto neighbourhoods are disappearing to be replaced by high rises. Parking has become an even bigger headache be-

cause parking lots are such valuable real estate. Any open space is a target for developers and with small lots worth millions of dollars property owners are reaping the benefits. It seems to me that condos are taking over downtown Toronto. Highrise residential properties are everywhere. If you decide to visit downtown Toronto this summer bring your patience with you. Especially if you are driving yourself ! The number of obstacles and delays you will face is significant. The chorus of vehicle horns along major downtown routes including King, Queen and Adelaide streets as well as busy Spadina Avenue is amazing at the best of times. During construction season the "horn serenade" is even more dramatic! Pedestrians too have to

be very alert in hectic Toronto, especially at this time of year. In downtown Toronto red means "go." So, where exactly does Toronto stand among North American cities in terms of overall population? To wrap up this week's column here is another amazing statistic for you. Toronto is now the fourth largest city on the continent behind only Mexico City, New York City and Los Angeles.

FESTIVAL OF THE WILD CHILD RETURNS AUG. 24-25 The third annual Festival of the Wild Child, a twoday event at High Lonesome Nature Reserve in the Pakenham Hills, takes place on Aug. 24 and 25. Open to the public from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., this festival is offered by the Mississippi Madawaska Land Trust (MMLT) and provides a variety of stations along wooded trails and by ponds to learn, explore and engage with the natural world. Knowledgeable volunteers are at each station to help open windows into the many wonders of nature. At Tranquility Pond and at Joel's Pond, children can don rubber boots, grab a net, and experts will be on hand to help identify and learn about the creatures they find. At Beaver Pond, the ever popular soundscaping site will offer a relaxing way to hear nature's sounds amplified, including the surprisingly active life in the bottom of the pond or the wind high up in the trees. Forest fun takes place at Stonewall Arboretum, and a turtle or two may be spotted at Turtle Pond adjoining the arboretum. Next

door is the rock station, with an explanation of the local geology and much more. As you walk further along the trail there is a soil pit, where the "Soil Guy" will take you on a journey through the historic life of the area through examination of distinct layers of the earth. Inspired by the day's adventures the whole family can participate at the Magical Mystical Musical Old Oak, with dramatic performances by woodland characters who will save the Old Oak tree from the evil elf who stole the five golden acorns. The Old Oak will also be a place for games, crafts and music-making. For those with a creative bent, at some of the other stations there will be an opportunity to try your hand at various creative activities that are linked to that station: pottery at the soil pit, painting pet rocks at the rock station, bark rubbings at the Stonewall Arboretum, artwork at the

soundscaping site and poetry at the ponds. There are also special events throughout the weekend: a campfire (weather permitting) in the afternoons with bannock making and other crafts, maybe a singalong and storytelling. In the welcome centre, there will be an opportunity each afternoon to learn about the special benefits of the much-maligned wasp, with an exhibit and minilecture. Each child will receive a passport and get a stamp at each station they visit. Admission is free to children and youth under 18, and $10 for adults. You are welcome to bring a picnic, however Law and Orders will be on-site preparing delicious meals. Mississippi Madawaska Land Trust is a charity dedicated to preserving wilderness lands and is committed to providing events - like the Festival of the Wild Child - that engage the community with the wonders of nature in a wildernesslike setting.

HOSPITALS AWARDED ACCREDITATION Almonte General Hospital (AGH) and Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital (CPDMH) have both been awarded accreditation with exemplary standing from Accreditation Canada. This is the highest level of accreditation and is awarded to organizations that go beyond the requirements and demonstrate excellence in continuously improving patient and resident care. The surveys took place at the two hospitals, as well as Fairview Manor. "This is a milestone to be celebrated, and we congratulate you and your team for your commitment to providing safe, high

quality health services," notes Julie Langlois, chair, accreditation decision committee. "We are proud to have met the highest national standards for quality improvement and patient safety," says Mary Wilson Trider, president and chief executive officer. "This exemplary result is a reflection of everyone's hard work and commitment to high quality care for our patients and residents." The surveyors congratulated all teams on their success, sharing comments from patients, residents and families. They noted that the overall sentiment heard both in Almonte and Carleton Place was that: "The hospital is the heart of the community and our community is our heart." In Almonte, patients said: "There is love at this

hospital." and "You can feel the commitment of the people working here." In Carleton Place, patients said: "We are very fortunate to have such high-quality care right here in Carleton Place." and "Staff go out of their way to help patients get the care they need." The two hospitals are part of the Mississippi River Health Alliance. The alliance formalizes the commitment between the two hospitals to share best practices and learn from one another. "This is another great example of the benefits of the two hospitals working together," notes Rob Clayton, board chair, CPDMH. AGH/FVM board chair Randy Larkin agrees. "Together, we have one goal. The best care close to home." Submitted by Jane Adams

LOCAL HERO FUNDRAISES FOR PARKINSON'S PROGRAMS She does it all from Carleton Place Terrace. At almost 79, and very computer savvy, Pat Hansen sits in front of her large screen, digs into her database of friends and family from across Canada and down into the States, and starts to send out request letters. In 2017, she and her team raised $8,400. This year, so far, she's reached $2,300 but she still has 31 days in August and seven in September before the Parkinson's Canada SuperWalk. Hansen has had Parkinson's disease for at least 20 years, maybe longer. She remembers when she first felt something wasn't right. It was at her father's funeral when she tried to slide across the seat of the limousine to reach the door. She couldn't. She quickly noticed other things - in pictures she looked hunched, it was more difficult to walk, she couldn't stand up straight. And then, stopping to rest during a bike ride with Henry, her husband, she was very shaky (Hansen demonstrates forcefully by

shaking her hands). "Henry looked at me and said something's wrong." She was diagnosed Feb. 1, 1999 and Parkinson's was confirmed by a neurologist seven short weeks later near the end of March. That's another thing people notice about the small, brightly dressed woman: Not only does she raise money, and is computer literate, she has an astonishing memory for dates - like the day she caught a 58-inch long sailfish in Isla Morada in the Florida Keys. That was 1978. Hansen was raised in Britannia in Ottawa, went to Broadview Public School and then onto Nepean High School, married her first husband in 1961 and married for the second time in 1976. Between Hansen and her second husband, they had eight children - she has four daughters, he had three daughters and a son. She worked "in construction, mostly" as an office manager; Henry was a dealer in eastern Ontario and western Quebec for Pan Abode. In 1983, the two moved to Victoria, where

Hansen opened a bed and breakfast. She met some "interesting people" along the way, she grins that impish grin. They eventually moved back to Ontario as her mom was getting older, and bought an old house in Carleton Place on William Street. Henry died just last year on May 28, and Hansen vividly remembers that day. "I said [to Henry] I'm going to kiss you on the forehead. I did. He held my hand up and kissed me on the hand. I said I love you ... I always have and always will. He died two hours later. It's good I had that ..." That year they didn't fundraise for the SuperWalk, as the memory was just too fresh. But this year she's at it again and this year she's raising money with a Lanark North Leeds team - Dan Linton and his family (Karen Amy, Amanda and Zachary) plus Hansen's daughter, Kim, and Henry's daughter, Sonja. The money raised on the walks goes toward "supporting people with Parkinson's and their caregivers, toward advoca-

Parkinson's SuperWalk photo Pat Hansen of Carleton Place is one of the local heroes, fundraising for the Sept. 7 Parkinson's SuperWalk at Conlon Farm in Perth. Hansen has been living with Parkinson's Disease for at least 20 years. cy on behalf of people with Parkinson's, education, getting the word out about what is happening, research .... Hopefully, there'll be a cure." She does have one thought in particular she wants to get across. That is, for friends and caregivers, to understand just how differently people with Parkinson's experience the disease. "I have a dickens of a

time saying 'no' to people when they want to help ... but there are certain things that hinder you." Hansen is very capable of doing things for herself and one of those is "wheeling down the hall. People start wheeling me without thinking, without asking if they can help, only saying 'Watch your fingers.' I get frustrated. People need to ask first." And, when she's walk-

ing, people offer help by putting a hand on her back. "I seize up. I'm useless. That's the big one. There needs to be some dialogue." She stops here to almost apologize. "Everybody with Parkinson's sounds so positive and upbeat. Why do I sound a bit negative? Maybe because I've had it longer than most...." Pat Hansen is a local hero. There are lots of them around ... we just don't see, or notice them often. Parkinson's is a neurodegenerative disorder. It might run in families; it might not. The cause remains unknown. There is no cure. Treatment options include medications and surgery. Sometimes the progression is slow; at other times it's quick. Every Parkinson's patient is different. Come out and walk at the Parkinson's SuperWalk Sept. 7 at Conlon Farm in Perth. Caregivers and people with Parkinson's will be raising funds for research and local programs. For information, go to donate.parkinson.ca/lanarknorthleeds and come and join the fight against Parkinson's. Look for Hansen. She'll be there with her walker or her portable wheelchair ... and a lot of friends. Submitted by the Parkinson's SuperWalk committee

PIRATES INVADE ALMONTE FOR HOSPITAL PADDLE FUNDRAISER community it serves," remarked Solomonian's cochair Gretta Bradley. "But there's only one winner in the battle of the supremacy of the high seas in Almonte." The timed heat winners saw the PRATAC Pirates take first place with a time of 4:24. Seconds behind were runners-up, the Grace O'Malley at 4:29. Third went to the Duct Tape Pirates with their time of 6:06. Teams used their imagination when designing their rafts, with Plankton's Pirates creating theirs with using a grid of plastic water jugs. Arguably the most eye-catching were the Gondoliers, captained by Mississippi Mills Deputy Mayor Rickey Minnille, which looked ready to sail the canals of Venice with an Italian-themed watercraft that featured a table setting complete with a candle in a bottle of wine. According to Al Roberts, managing director of

ASHLEY KULP akulp@metroland.com Pirates stormed the shores for the Mississippi River in Almonte on Aug. 10 in search of treasure for Almonte General Hospital (AGH). Local residents teamed up to compete in the third annual Paddle for AGH, which saw groups build their own rafts and race them across the river, while being cheered on by the community. The event also included a community paddle, an opportunity to try out a stand-up paddle board, face painting and a barbecue by the Almonte Civitan Club. The final figures showed more than $10,000 was raised for the hospital through the event. Paddle for AGH co-chair Art Solomonian noted the nearly 10 teams who participated brought in $6,779 in pledges that day. "Everyone wins, especially our hospital and the

From top: The PRATAC Pirates push towards the finish line in the third annual Paddle for AGH at the Almonte Beach on Aug. 10. The event sees teams build rafts and race them out on the Mississippi River to raise funds for Almonte General Hospital.

"Community support like this goes a long way to ensure that we have the best tools in the hands of the most amazing staff in the world," he noted. "Without fundraisers like this,

Ashley Kulp/Torstar our staff would not have the important equipment they need on a day-to-day basis to look after you." He also paid tribute to the dedicated organizing committee. "These people are all volunteers, they're

all community members, they're your neighbours, etc., and events like this don't happen without a great group of people working hard," Roberts stated. Mississippi Mills Mayor Christa Lowry, who entered

a raft with her group, the Blue Jays Farm Team, joked the microphone felt heavy after paddling the river in what she called "hands down my favourite event." "One of the things I absolutely love about this community is how we have so many festivals, so many events, so many great things like this," she continued. "When we can get together and have so much fun like this and raise money for the hospital, which is such a gem for our community, I think that's a great win for everybody." Other awards were handed out, including one for best raft (spirit, design). The Grace O'Malley took first, with the Duct Tape Pirates and Blue Jays Farm Team in second and third, respectively. The most donations collected also went to the Grace O'Malley Team with $3,030, followed by the Blue Jays Farm Team ($1,580) and the PRATAC Pirates ($1,040). Bradley was also honoured with an angel pin by Joy Delahunt, a volunteer with the foundation and former director on the board. She's been a longstanding volunteer with the hospital and has chaired the Paddle for AGH for the past two years. Angel pins are awarded to individuals who have gone "above and beyond the call of duty in terms of providing care and supporting the hospital, doing something in the manor ..." Roberts said.

NORTH GRENVILLE RESIDENT DEFRAUDED IN SCAM Grenville County OPP are investigating after a suspected fraud occurred in North Grenville. On Aug. 8, OPP officers were advised from a resident that they had been defrauded of a substantial amount of money by someone claiming to be their grandson. The

fraudster said he was in an 'at fault' collision, and now required money to pay for legal expenses. The fraudster defrauded the victim out of over $9,000. The OPP remind residents that if you get a call or email from someone claiming to know you

and asking for help, check to confirm that it's legitimate before you send any money. Ask some questions that would be hard for an imposter to answer correctly - the name of the person's pet, for example, or the date of their mother's birthday. Contact the person who

they claim to be directly. If you can't reach the person, contact someone else - a friend or relative of the person. Don't send money unless you're sure it's the real person you know. OPP say impostor scams are cleverly designed to play on your fears; it's hard to avoid falling for them. If you believe that someone is posing as a fraudster, hang up.

McLEISH, June It is with profound sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our wife, mother, grandmother and friend, June McLeish, aged 66, on August 6, 2019, due to cancer. In her final days she was surrounded by family and music just as she wished. She was born July 8, 1953 in St John, NB, and was lovingly chosen by Mary (D) and Omar Kumm (D) to be their child. She had a zest for life and welcomed everyone into her home regardless of race, monetary status, age or sexual preference. She believed in seeing the truth and beauty in all people. She is survived by her loving husband of 22 years, Ian McLeish, her daughters Lana Spicer (Craig), Valerie Beale (Fraser). Eila McLeish, her sons, Christopher Gibson, Wyatt Boucher, and Wilson McLeish. She is also survived by her numerous grandchildren Amber (Dan), Samantha (Mike), Ayden, Maia, Ryan and Tyler and by her great grandchildren Benjamin and Riley. She was the matriarch of our family, a source of constant joy and light, gracing every room she entered with her beautiful and infectious smile. June was a person who gave back to the community and always tried to be the champion of those that were in the most need. She loved animals with a passion, especially cats and her home was always a haven for them. Ulysses, Duffy, Alice and Gizmo will miss her deeply. In lieu of flowers you can send donations to the following organizations: Mel’s Farm for Rescued Animals https://www.melsfarm.ca/ or the Canadian Cancer Society https://www.cancer.ca/en/?region=o n. We will be holding a Celebration of Life on Saturday, September 21, 2019. Time and place to follow. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her. The world was a better place because of her <3

PALMER, John Gray November 6, 1921 - August 7, 2019 After living a full, rich life Gray Palmer (son of the late Mabel and Jack Palmer) quietly slipped away at the GWM Hospital in Perth. His 97 years began and finished at his dearly loved Christie Lake. He had called Mont Jolie Quebec his home during WWII. Irene and Gray resided in Perth to raise their family until retirement led them once more back to Christie Lake. Gray was predeceased by his wife Irene (Poole), his brother Elwood (in his 100th year) and his oldest son Robert. Left to carry on the Palmer tradition are; his daughter-in-law Dawn (late Bob), son Doug and his wife Judy, his grandsons: Shaun (Christine), Cory (Nicole) Derek (Laura) and his great-grandchildren, Amelia, Olivia and Ellie. Gray will also be dearly missed by his stepchildren: Lorna and Wayne and their families, many nieces, nephews and cherished friends. We will forever remember Gray’s quick wit, excellent memory, his carpentry skills and his ability to entertain others with colourful stories of “days gone by”. Gray enlightened many as he regaled tales and actions of early days at Christie Lake. Our family deeply appreciates the efforts of so many who helped Gray fulfill his last wish of living at the lake up until his last few days. As his challenges became greater many agencies offered love, support and compassion to Gray and his family. We are humbled, grateful and beyond thankful to Dr. Gauthier and his staff, dedicated Bayshore caregivers, Perth Home Support, the amazingly supportive Veterans Affairs and last but certainly not least, his dear devoted friends, family and neighbours. Friends and family may pay their respects at the Blair & Son Funeral Home, 15 Gore St. W., Perth on Sunday, August 11, 2019 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. A private family service will take place at Elmwood Cementer at a later date. In remembrance of Gray, donations may be made to the Cancer ‘Wheels of Hope’ or the Great War Memorial Hospital Foundation would be appreciated.

McTAVISH, Dixie Lee 1957 - 2019 With heavy hearts and deep sorrow we announce the death of Dixie McTavish. She was the outstanding and loving mother of Andrew (Kelly) James and Leah (Shawn Kuruneru) James, wife of Kevin James (1978-2010), and proud grandmother of Lydia, Maren, Ruth, and Edison James. The cherished daughter of Ruth and Bob McTavish, and beloved sister of Art and Steve McTavish. Dixie passed away peacefully on Wednesday, August 7, 2019 at Kingston General Hospital with her family by her side. She will be remembered for her generous heart, her kind, gentle spirit, and positive and cheery attitude. She taught us to enjoy the small things in life and to always see the best in every situation, person, and place. Her curious spirit lead her to earn a BA from Queens University and a Bachelor of Education from University of Ottawa. She held careers as a florist, a business owner and partner, and in recent years, an educational assistant with the Upper Canada District School Board. Dixie will be remembered as a creative and energetic soul. She was an avid drawer, gardener, and in her younger years, a painter. Her family will treasure the paintings and drawings that she has left with us from years past. She will also be remembered as a loving mother. Her commitment to her children was profound. It was certainly remembered over the past months when Dixie needed her children’s attention and care. This lesson in love will not be forgotten. Though her time with us was too short, her spirit lives on in her children, grandchildren and all the friends and people she touched along her journey. Our family would like to thank the teams at Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospitals and the Cancer Center of Southeastern Ontario at Kingston General Hospital for their exceptional care. Dixie’s family and friends will gather for a visitation to be held at Blair and Son Funeral home, 15 Gore St. W., Perth on Tuesday, August 13 from 2:00 - 4:00 and 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. A funeral will be held at St. Paul’s United Church, 25 Gore St. W. Perth on Wednesday, August 14th at 10:30 a.m. A reception will follow the service. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Terry Fox Foundation or to the Canadian Cancer Society “Wheels of Hope”.

She was born February 28, 1932 to Mary Ann and Alan (Bud) Reed and spent her early life on the family farm outside of Elrose, Saskatchewan. A survivor of polio in her youth she never let adversity get her down. Following a brief stint at secretarial school she joined the Canadian Air Force where she met and married the love of her life Cecil Moore.

The pair eventually settled down in Yorkton Saskatchewan until retirement brought them east to their dream home outside of Lombardy Ontario where they spent another 25 happy years together. Never shy to make her opinion known, Berneice loved her family, gardening, spending time exploring the land surrounding their property and in her later years she could be seen eagerly zipping about in her Gator on B6. Pre-deceased by Cecil in 2015, she now goes to join him for their next adventure together. She will be missed by her family, daughters, Mary, Donna and Susan, sons Russell and David, as well as her 13 grandchildren and 11 greatgrandchildren.

CATON, Richard James “Rick” December 2, 1951 - August 5, 2019 It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of Rick Caton in the Perth hospital. Rick passed away peacefully on August 5, 2019 after a courageous struggle with brain cancer. Rick was the dearly loved husband of Pamela Grant and father to Kristina Russell (John Richard) and Janna Holmes (Andrew). Proud grandfather of Jack and Max Holmes. Loving brother of Lori McIntee (Gonzalo Bustos) and brother-in-law of Gordon Grant (the late Maryke McCarron). Loving uncle of Kate McIntee (Steve Cote) and Kerry McIntee (Amy). Fondly remembered by Gail Caton. Predeceased by his parents James Edgar Caton and Phyllis Marjorie Caton (nee Parkes). Born in Port Dalhousie, Ontario, Rick developed a love of all nature, and especially of birdlife, at a young age. He pursued this interest by working as a naturalist in his younger years, and eventually taking up bird carving. His personal knowledge of his subjects allowed him to capture the attitude and stature of each of the birds he carved. He was also a talented musician; Rick played the guitar and sang, in bands, in bars, and around the campfire. Witty and charming, he enjoyed life to the fullest. Family and friends will gather at the Blair & Son Funeral Home, 15 Gore St. W., Perth on Sunday, August 11, 2019 for a service to honour his life at 11:00 a.m. followed by a reception in the Blair & Son Family Centre. Following the reception, all are invited for a Celebration of His Life at the family home on Mary Street. The family extends thanks to all those who helped to brighten Rick’s days as he faced health challenges, including Bill Gibson, Bob Reid, PSW Mike Thomas, nurse Leslie Richmond, Dr. Taylor Ferrier, the nurses on the second floor of the PSFDH, and others. We are grateful for the wonderful compassionate support offered in our community, both on an individual level and through our healthcare system. For those who so desire, donations can be made to the Foundation of the Great War Memorial Hospital, or the Canadian Cancer Foundation.

A “family first” guy who cherished his backyard get-togethers, he was also an avid Hunter who marked every season with a trip to the hunting camp where he thoroughly enjoyed the company of his life-long friends. He travelled many roads, loved life, and practiced his Christian Faith. In the end, he was not afraid of what was to come. Rest in Peace Dick, you’ve earned your place among the stars.

Dick loved being an engaged and active member of the community. He was always ready to lend a hand, and there were a lot of happy memories shared after the service over lunch with family and friends from near and far.

It broke our hearts to lose you, But you did not go alone A part of us went with you the day God took you home. If tears could build a stairway and heartaches make a lane we would walk our way to heaven and bring you back again. In life we loved you dearly in death we love you still in our hearts you hold a place no one could ever fill. Love, Phyllis, Joanne, Andrew, Devin, Oryst and Muffie

You never said I’m leaving, You never said goodbye. You were gone before I knew it, And only God knows why. A million times I needed you A million times I cried. If love alone could have saved you, You never would have died. In life I loved you dearly In death I love you still, In my heart you hold a place, That no one could ever fill. It broke my heart to lose you, But you didn’t go alone. For part of me went with you, The day God called you home.

LÉPINE APARTMENTS: QUALITY CONSTRUCTION AND GOOD DESIGN “Our apartments are built to last” says

Francis Lépine, the developer and president of Lépine Apartments. Lépine uses quality materials and construction to ensure their luxury apartments will stand the test of time.

Thick concrete maximizes the thermal efficiency, soundproofing, and comfort of the units like few other apartment buildings in Ontario. The mechanical, plumbing, and electrical systems are installed for efficiency, ease of maintenance, and reliability. This provides residents with all the comforts of worrvy-free living they could want for their home. From the moment you enter a Lépine luxury apartment, the quality is immediately evident in the spaciousness and attention to detail.

There is ample counter space, cabinets, (including a full-height pantry) and extra-high upper cabinets for additional storage. Appliances include a combination microwave and hood fan which

saves counter space. There is also a full-sized range and oven, refrigerator, and dishwasher, all in stainless steel. Walking into the dining room, it’s easy to see there is space for a family-sized table and a sideboard or hutch. Most of the Lépine bedrooms are designed to accommodate king-sized beds in the master bedroom and queen-sized beds in the secondary bedroom. Many units have large multi-purpose dens, perfectly suited for home offices, nurseries, television rooms, or a guest room. The large ensuite bathrooms include walk-in showers, spacious vanities, linen closets, and full-size stacked washers and dryers. Laundry can be taken care of from the convenience of the tenant’s suite.

One of many available amenity spaces, the fitness centres are spacious, well-equipped, and infused with a private-club atmosphere. Each fitness centre offers multi-purpose areas designed for yoga, pilates, and additional group classes. Other amenities include party rooms, tenant’s lounges and more!
