Strongman Magnus Ver Magnusson impresses high school students By TARA GESNER tgesner@perfprint.ca

Sports – Magnus Ver Magnusson gave Carleton Place High School (CPHS) students a lesson they’ll never forget. The four time World’s Strongest Man from Iceland stopped by on Friday, Sept. 13, to speak to students participating in the high school’s CrossFit program. CPHS is the first secondary school in Canada to offer the program - thanks to the determination of Brian Dickie, teacher, coach and CrossFit enthusiast. At CPHS, students take a

normal course load and CrossFit is part of their physical education (PE) requirement. They learn about strength training, fitness and nutrition. “To say it is successful is an understatement,” said Dickie. This year, 180 kids are participating, and CPHS has nearly 600 students. Ver Magnusson dominated the sport of Strongman in the 1990s, named champion in 1991, 1994, 1995 and 1996 and runner-up in 1992 and 1993. Still today, some people argue that Ver Magnusson retired in his prime. Strongman tests competitors’ strength in a variety of different

ways. To name a few, events include farmer’s walk, vehicle pull, overhead press, Husafell Stone, dumbbell press and log lift. Ver Magnusson told students he could powerlift 880 pounds at his peak, and the 50-year-old bench-pressed 405 pounds right in front of his wide-eyed audience. On Friday, he spoke about technique, and impressed upon the importance of CrossFit training. “CrossFit is a mix of powerlifting, strongman and cardio,” said Ver Magnusson. See MAGNUS A/CP2

Entertainment – It’s time to do the doo! The Doo in the Derry, now in its ninth year, takes place on Sunday, Sept. 22, at Prospect United Church, located between Franktown and Richmond on Richmond Road (County Road 10). The Doo in the Derry, a totally acoustic concert, runs from 2 to 4 p.m. Ottawa Valley troubadour Lyle Dillabough hosts the affair. “The show is a joint Beckwith Township and Lyle Dillabough Productions initiative, although I like to think that everyone who attends is responsible for making it all happen,” said Dillabough. Performers taking part include the Ottawa Valley Review (Dillabough, Tom Gardiner and Mac Knowles), Smokey Rose (Darlene Thibault and Lee Hodgkinson), and a few others. “You never know who is going to show up,” said Dillabough. “Media, politicians, ‘characters’ and everyone and everything in between have been at the Doo.” The yearly community celebration, described as a “service for the soul,” offers ambience and charm. Styles of music performed include classic country, traditional Valley, gospel, and the list goes on. Beckwith Township pioneers built Prospect United Church more than 175 years ago. They settled in a place referred to as the Derry, which means wooded glen. In the early 1970s, the building ceased to be used as a place of worship. Today, it and the adjacent cemetery are owned and maintained by the municipality. Occasionally, it is used for weddings, and of course, the annual Doo in the Derry. The music concert is free. “Although the show is free, donations are happily taken at the door, and very much encouraged,” said Dillabough. Funds raised have paid for a new roof and other upkeeps in recent years. Seating is first come-

first serve. Doo in the Derry attendees are always reminded to dress for the weather, as the former church does not have electricity. “People are drawn to this event,” said Dillabough. “I think it’s because it’s so magical, and because most folks want to be connected to something that is so real, down to earth. Or maybe it’s because they feel like they are a participant and not just an observer.” In the beginning Dillabough was working at the Canadian Gazette in 2005 when he noticed an item in the newspaper about a couple wishing to get married at Prospect United Church. “The township agreed, as long as the couple cleaned it out,” he said. After all, the building hadn’t been open for many, many years. “When I saw the newspaper item, something struck me inside,” said Dillabough, “and I just had to go and see this place for myself.” At first glance, the troubadour immediately knew he needed to host a concert there. “Although the township hesitated at first, I was eventually granted permission to do it,” said Dillabough. Reeve Richard Kidd’s great grandparents helped build the church. “Richard took a personal interest in the concert,” explained Dillabough, “and it was very touching to see him come in early (the day of the event) to sweep the floor, arrange flowers and clean around the stained glass windows.” “He had a gleam in his eyes,” the musician continued. That day, people who hadn’t been inside Prospect United Church for a number of years returned – they came home. “The place was packed,” said Dillabough, “and although it was damp and raining outside, no one wanted to leave.” For more information about, contact Cassandra McGregor at the municipal office in Beckwith: 613-257-1539 or cmcgregor@twp.beckwith.on.ca.

News – Ontario Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak has fired local MPP Randy Hillier as the Tory labour critic. The decision came suddenly in a phone call between Hillier and Hudak on Thursday, Sept. 12. “I had an arranged phone call with Mr. Hudak,â€? said Hillier during an interview on Sept. 16. “It was a different sort of phone call than what I was expecting. I was given an ultimatum. I was accused of doing things that I have not done. I was given an opportunity to retract statements in the media‌ that I know were honest and accurate.â€? If he did not do as was expected of him, “I would be banished to the back benches.â€? To this, Hillier told Hudak, “it’s a cost I will wear. I am disappointed. It was not what I expected the conversation to be about.â€? The next day, Lambton-KentMiddlesex MPP Monte McNaughton was promoted to Hillier’s old job. Hudak accused Hillier of not being a team player, after a series of emails from Hillier were leaked to the media, exposing rifts within the party. According to a leaked email made available to the Toronto Star, written last May, and published by the daily earlier this month, Hillier wrote to other members of the Progressive Conservative caucus at Queen’s Park, stating that the party was “walking on thin ice,â€? by supporting a bill that would free construction giant EllisDon from a closed-shop union agreement signed in 1958. Hillier confirmed during the Sept. 9 interview that while the email “was not sent from meâ€? to the Star, it was his email, and his words. “We do have a problem with brown envelopes here at Queen’s Park,â€? said Hillier in the interview. In a now-ironic statement, Hillier said that if he had any more comments or criticisms within the party, “I probably won’t be putting it in an email.â€? In the email, Hillier wrote that, “in caucus, it was stated quite explicitly that following a successful EllisDon fundraiser for Tim (Hudak), our party would continue to benefit financially with the advancement of this legislation.â€? He also feared that such action would contravene the Legislative Assembly Act, which makes it illegal for MPPs to benefit, directly or indirectly, from legislation. Further to this, he pointed out that supporting the legislation might also play into the hands of their political rivals, that, by helping one company, “that we are only fighting unions to make big business richer.â€? Hillier has not revealed the identity of who made these remarks in caucus. While Bill 74 has passed first and second reading – with PC and Liberal support – in a rare move, Hillier joined with the union-friendly New Democrats in voting against the bill. “It doesn’t happen too often,â€? he said. “You can count on one hand‌ how many times people have voted against their party.â€? Hillier said that his email was part of his job as labour critic, to offer

for the top job against Hudak back in 2009. “I can represent them (my constituents) best by having convictions and principals,� he said. Now that he is no longer labour critic, “I have less constraints to advance public policy. There is no longer the obligation to advance legislation on behalf of the party.� When he arrived home from Toronto, “the home phone was pretty full up with messages,� he said. At his Perth constituency office this past Monday, the mood was the same. “A great number of people (are) coming in to wish me well and to congratulate me,� he said.

Lanark County establishes first-ever LGBT Civitan Club in world By ASHLEY KULP akulp@perfprint.ca

News – History was made Monday evening (Sept. 16) in the Smiths Falls Civitan Club hall. The LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) Lanark County Civitan Club was officially formed during a charter night celebration at the hall, earning Lanark County the distinction of having the first LGBT Civitan Club in the world. “History has been made here tonight,” LGBT Lanark County Civitan Club president Penny Kelly noted as the audience erupted in a cheer. “...This is a very proud moment for the LGBT community and we are very excited and honoured to be members of the Civitan Club.” Sponsored by the Smiths Falls Civitan Club, the evening get underway with refreshments and hors d’oeuvres followed by words of welcome by Smiths Falls Civitan Club member and current Canadian District East governor Bryan Wiltsie. Bryan

and wife Julie serve as the club builders. He said talks to establish the new club began back in May with LGBT Lanark County, an organization dedicated to support and education within the LGBT community, which was formed in October 2010. Upon taking up his term as district governor a year ago, Bryan said he wished to promote growth within the region. “I took this task very serious and created a contest to challenge the presidents and their clubs to increase membership,” he stated. “By doing this I knew I had to lead by example…” He credited his wife Julie with the idea to approach LGBT Lanark County. “By doing this I knew I had to lead by example and with the encouragement, support and direction of my wife Julie, this charter is taking place tonight,” Bryan continued. “Julie, thank you for always standing beside me and for your wonderful idea to approach Elizabeth Snyder (founding member) of the LGBT Lanark County group.”

Big support Showcasing the fellowship Civitan International is known for worldwide, a number of area clubs came out to lend their support to the new LGBT Civitan Club, including Perth, Carleton Place, Almonte, Pakenham, Lanark and District, as well as Pembroke, Cobden and hometown Smiths Falls. Special guest for the evening, who performed the initiation for the new club’s charter members was 2013-2014 Civitan International president Bob Robinson. Those visiting clubs welcomed the new group with open arms, many of them providing gifts of small donations to help them establish themselves. “We hope this (donation) will give you a running start for the future,” said Almonte Civitan Club’s Ross Munro, who also presented Kelly with a coloured flashing pin in honour of the occasion. “We’re thrilled that you have joined us,” added Doris Rankin of the Pakenham Civitan Club,

which was formed nine years ago. “We’re one of the new kids on the block so if you need advice, give us a call.” “These gifts, know that they are a foundation for you, but we hope you feel the love when you open these cards. Know that it comes with a lot of love and encouragement,” Rankin continued. Local municipalities backed the initiative, with dignitaries such as Carleton Place mayor Wendy LeBlanc, Smiths Falls mayor Dennis Staples, Drummond-North Elmsley reeve Aubrey Churchill, Lanark Highlands mayor Peter McLaren, Beckwith reeve Richard Kidd

and Montague Township reeve and Lanark County warden, Bill Dobson. “I must say that tonight really is about pride and I think in Lanark County, we have an awful lot of pride,” Dobson said. Staples said the Smiths Falls Civitan should be commended for helping “take this very important step” and offered the full support of the Town of Smiths Falls and council. “You’re the first club in the world and hopefully not the last to continue on,” McLaren added. Smiths Falls Police Service community services officer, Constable David Murphy, was also there in support of the partner-

ship the police have with LGBT Lanark County. “I’m in schools all the time and it’s a tough go, but it’s great to see that everyone digs their heels in and does what they need to do,” he said. The Smiths Falls club was particularly excited to be serving as sponsor for the group. “I welcome you into the Civitan and let you know that we’re here for help and support. All you have to do is ask and we will do what we can to help you out,” Smiths Falls Civitan president Carolyn Trenholme said. “I want you to know we are proud to be your sponsor and I can speak for See CIVITAN page 6

Community – Imagine a field full of sunflowers, golden yellow blooms all at attention, all following the sun. Introduce a group of artists and photographers, each with their own talent, their own vision of the sunflower field and the result will be a collection of works captured by their collective eyes, all to be sold to benefit The Table Community Food Center in Perth. This all started with a question posed by Dale Horeczy and Brad Daily of Kricklewood Farm in Frankville: “How can we share the amazing beauty of the sunflower field with others?� Kricklewood Farm, eastern Ontario’s first producer of cold pressed sunflower oil, planted their second year’s crop earlier this spring and began to ponder this question. “The flowers are in bloom for such a short time, so how can we take it a step further beyond inviting people to come and see it for themselves?� The answer was to invite area photographers and artists to come to the farm and capture the beauty of the field using their own medium of choice. They could come to the farm in the morning, in the evening, all according to their individual preference for light and time of day. They could spend as much time as they wanted, create as much as they could with only one condition: to donate one piece to a group show and sale with proceeds to go to The Table Community Food Center, (www.thetablecfc.org) a welcoming space where people come together to grow, cook, share and advocate for good food. The show will be held at the Herb Garden (3840 Old Almonte Road) Sept. 22 to 29, with an opening reception Sept.

all of our members.” Of Civitan, Trenholme acknowledged, “...it’s work, but it’s fun and that’s what makes the club great. We work hard but we have fun.” As Robinson conducted the initiation of charter members, he likened Civitan representatives to heroes due to the community service projects and fundraisers they perform within their communities. “It’s truly an honour for you to be charter members of the LGBT Lanark County Civitan. You will be heroes to people in different communities as well as those who follow in your footsteps in this club,” he stated as he lit three candles symbolizing the three main purposes of Civitan (fellowship, knowledge and service), which date back to 1917 in Birmingham, Alabama. “ While he slipped Civitan ribbons around each charter member’s neck, he encouraged them to “commit it to memory and live it each and every day.” After a standing ovation and congratulations from visiting clubs, the club’s officers were inducted: Kelly as president; president-elect Beth Schilling; secretary Dorothy Grooms; treasurer Kari Cunningham; and directors Cathy Blaine, Karen Britton-Reid, Lorrie BrittonReid and Shelley Montreuil. Bryan and Julie then presented Kelly with the official charter (number 4042), symbolizing the establishment of the club, followed up with Trenholme’s president-to-president gift of gavel and bell to Kelly,

as well as a candlelight ceremony where each club officer was given a candle. “The spirit of Civitan is like the light of this candle. If I try to keep it all to myself, it does not shine very far. But if I share it with another it doubles in value,” explained Bryan. “Notice that by sharing I spread the spirit but it does not diminish my light one bit.” Making history Kelly acknowledged that the road from October 2010 to Monday evening had been a long one for LGBT Lanark County. “(When it formed) we couldn’t know what the future would hold, we just wanted to create a way for LGBTs to socialize in their own communities and we wanted to come out and dance!” Those initiatives, known as ‘Come Out and Dance’ have become signature events within the group since the first dance in November 2010 at the Perth Civitan. “I thank you (Civitan) for treating us with decency and respect,” she said, noting that 90 people from areas including Smiths Falls, Perth, Carleton Place and Merrickville attended. “Some were gay, some were straight and some weren’t quite sure, but young people were excited they had a place where they could just be themselves.” “And you, the members of Civitan, stood by our side that night as you have every day since,” Kelly added. Since then, LGBT Lanark County has held three successful Pride days

have also made it their mission to combat the bullying of LGBT youth within local schools through their ‘Enough is Enough’ campaign. It was spurred on after the suicide of gay teen Jamie Hubley, of Ottawa. “We knew we needed to do more to prevent tragedy,” Kelly said, which resulted in the launch of ‘Enough is Enough’ in 2011, a bracelet and education program that also sees LGBT Lanark County representatives visit schools. “We teach that it’s okay to be different. It’s okay to be LGBT. We’ve been there. We’re here for you and it gets better.” In thanking the Wiltsies for their support, Kelly presented a rainbow flag to Bryan, pointing out that the colours represent life, healing, sunlight, nature, harmony and spirit.

SAFETY TIPS Smoke Alarms: Test your smoke alarms. If a fire starts in your home while you are asleep, you want to know about it immediately. Some homes are equipped with electrically-connected smoke alarms that may not work when the power is out. Make sure your home has a battery-operated smoke alarm on every level.

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

CPHC reflects on success of recent telethon DEAR EDITOR: Community and Primary Health Care and TVCogeco held its fifth annual Reason to Rock telethon, which took place Sept. 7. The event was broadcast live on TVCogeco across Lanark, Leeds and Grenville and Kingston. Donations were received during this special program, which allowed a number of CPHC staff, volunteers and community partners to highlight the breadth of services available through CPHC to the community. The focus was on raising awareness of services available within the community and increasing funds available for direct service for those in need. Several programs are either partially funded or not funded at all; many CPHC clients cannot afford the service, and thus the services are subsidized by CPHC.

All proceeds from this fundraiser were designated for CPHC Community Support Services in the Lanark, Leeds and Grenville area. These services include Caregiver Support and Services, Meals on Wheels, Client Intervention, Diners Clubs, Foot Care Clinics, Friendly Visiting, Home Help/Homemaking, home maintenance and repair, transportation and telephone reassurance, or the donors program choice. The event raised $70,716. The goal was to raise $75,000. These donations assist individuals in remaining in their home: reduce visits to emergency departments, reduce admissions to hospital beds and delay admissions to nursing homes.

COMMENTARY Civitan breaks ground Editorials – The county is abuzz of late with the announcement of the first-ever LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) Civitan Club being formed in Lanark County. The historic event took place Monday evening at the Smiths Falls Civitan Club, which served as the newly-established LGBT Lanark County Civitan Club’s sponsor. Judging by the full hall and attendance from Civitan clubs as close as Perth, Almonte and Carleton Place and as far away as Pembroke and Cobden, support for this initiative is evident. What’s equally impressive was the large showing of local municipal leaders, including those from Smiths Falls, Montague Township and Lanark Highlands, who pledged to assist the club as they continue to grow. Let’s hope this encouragement continues long after the celebration ends. Through the three tenets of Civitan (fellowship, knowledge and service), LGBT Lanark County hopes to continue its efforts to offer support and education programs to people as they have done through their Pride days, regular dances and ‘Enough is Enough’ bracelet and education campaign to combat bullying of LGBT youth. They have been New club president Penny Kelly remarked how Civitan has treated LGBT Lanark County with “decency and respect” and have stood by the group’s side since its inception in October 2010. The international organization should be commended for inviting people of all ages and walks of life to experience the true spirit of what Civitan has to offer.

Twenty-acre field held many precious memories Lifestyle – It was always called the 20-acre field. And yet Father said it was far more than 20 acres. He said if you counted the bush at the north end, you could add another couple acres to it. But we always called it the 20-acre field. It separated our farm from our neighbours, the Thoms. Although they were no relation, we always called them Uncle Alec and Aunt Bertha. Children back in those days never called an adult by their first name, and so the parents of our best friends in Northcote were always called Aunt and Uncle. The 20 acres was always a hay field. Father said the soil was best for hay, and other crops were planted on the fields beyond the West Hill, where there was rich black loam, ideal for wheat, barley and oats. For reasons unknown, all of the farms in that part of Northcote were laid out in long narrow strips, and on our side, there were no exceptions. Father always said you could spit across our fields, they were so narrow, but our farm ran from the Northcote

Side Road, straight south and across the Bonnechere...this long narrow piece of farmland that had seen three generations of Father’s family live and die. But the 20-acre field was more than just a field. When the hay had been taken off, you could see the path where dozens of times, we had walked, rode horseback, or taken the buggy in the summer and the cutter in the winter, over to the Thom’s homestead. When the hay had yet to be harvested, we walked close to the fence that was in constant need of repair, but both Uncle Alec and Father could see no reason to fix it. “We don’t need a fence to tell us where our land lies,” Uncle Alec would say whenever the subject came up to prop up the bentover posts, and maybe replace the wiring. And so, most of the time the fence was either lying flat on the ground, or so bent over, you could step across the wiring without touching a shoe to it. If I was on my way to my friend’s farm, across the 20-acre field in the summertime, I walked close to the falling fence. I was sure if I walked Vice President & Regional Publisher Mike Mount mmount@perfprint.ca 613-283-3182, ext. 104

Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

through the hay; I would get lost and never see my mother again, because the crop, by mid-summer was far over my head. Being the meek child that I was, when I started out across the 20acre field to visit Velma, I would ask Mother to stand by the grape arbour, so that I could turn every 10 feet or so, wave to her, and make sure if any danger befell me, I could run for home. Only when I went through the gate, also badly in need of repair and never, ever did I see it closed, but always hanging open on one hinge, I left the 20-acre field behind me, and I would breathe a sigh of relief that I had once again made it safely. Coming home presented a problem though. My little friend Velma knew I

was frightened of my own shadow, and so she would walk with me half-way through the field, and stand there as I ran as fast as my legs could carry me home. And as soon as I would reach the grape arbour, I would turn and wave to Velma and she would return to her own home. I marvelled at how brave was my little friend Velma. In the wintertime, when the hay had long since been taken off, and only stubble remained, I would wait for the snow to come and cover the field with a white blanket. The field looked bigger then, I thought. As soon as there was enough snow to make the field passable, Father would take the team of horses, hitch them to the big flat-bottomed sleigh and make many trips back and forth across the field to make a path. It would be as straight as a die. Leading from our yard at the side of our house, and right over to the opening in the fence where the gate hung by a hinge. My very favourite time for crossing the 20-acre field was in the dead of winter. When the air was crystal clear, and bitterly cold, and the full

moon overhead hung like a huge lit lantern. Going across the field to the Thoms was a special treat at any time, but in the winter, on a cold night, was my very favourite. It would take about 20 minutes to cross the field, all of us bundled up like mummies on the flatbottomed sleigh. And from under the blankets covering us, keeping out the cold, the 20-acre field looked like an immense white bedspread. After a fresh snow, the field sparkled like millions of diamonds, and I felt the utmost joy and peace. I thought how blessed we were to own that special tract of land. It was supposed to separate the two farms, but in fact, it tied us together. Today, decades later, the 20-acre field is still there. There still isn’t much of a fence, and its ground is rutted from hundreds of sleighs, wagons and horses using it as a way of getting from one farm to another. And through a child’s eyes, so many years ago, the 20-acre field was a symbol of the times linking neighbours, creating a bond, like a good and warm handshake. • 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.

Mississippi Mudds Youth theatre group presents Othello this fall Arts – The Mississippi Mudds Youth Theatre are back again this October, with 15 local youths bringing Othello, Shakespeare’s tragedy of jealousy, misunderstanding, and murder to the Carleton Place Town Hall theatre. Yes, the acting company that brought you Much Ado About Nothing last year, and Macbeth the year before (along with many

of the actors from last summer’s Almonte Valley Players’ production of Hamlet) and a number of talented newcomers will be presenting the classic tale of the noble warrior driven mad by the whispered lies of a false friend. The story is a simple one – General Othello has passed Iago over for promotion, favouring instead his friend Cassio. In re-

sponse, the sinister Iago plots revenge – using innuendo, lies, and manipulation – that will destroy Cassio and drive Othello mad with suspicion that his blameless wife Desdemona has betrayed him. Othello has, from the time of its first performance in 1604 (for Queen Elizabeth the first), been one of Shakespeare’s most popu-

lar plays, and it has never fallen out of fashion, with major productions being performed every decade or so since then. Many of the world’s greatest actors have been drawn to perform one of the plays two main adversaries: Othello and Iago. Paul Robeson, Laurence Olivier, Laurence Fishburne, Anthony Hopkins, and Patrick Stewart have all played Othello, while

Ian McKellan, Bob Hoskins, and Kenneth Brannagh have all taken on Iago. Just as with previous Mudds’ Shakespeare performances, the play will be presented in the round, with the audience close to the action, surrounding the performers. Veteran Shakespearean director Mark Piper is back for another production, as well. So mark your calendars – the

Mississippi Mudds Youth Theatre brings Shakespeare’s Othello to the Carleton Place Town Hall on Oct. 20, 25, and 26. Tickets will be sold at the Carleton Place Chamber of Commerce Visitor Centre, 132 Coleman Street (613-257-1976). For more details, please visit mississippimudds.ca.

A team of 10 Ontario Public Service employees passed through Perth Sept. 12, bound for Toronto during the Bike For United Way (B4UW) initiative, above right. Above, the riders included, in no particular order: captain Peter Makula, Marcus Brunnmeier, Béatrice Cardin, Ari Caylakyan, Dwight Couchman, Doug Flegel, Jamie Fligg, Jennifer Keyes, Ian MacNeil and Melissa Miller. The team is one of three donating their vacation time and expenses with the goal of raising $75,000 in support of the annual United Way campaign. The funds raised will go towards the various United Way organizations along the route, including the United Way of Lanark County. Above, the group with United Way of Lanark County executive director Fraser Scantlebury, far left, Foodsmiths owner Claire Smith, sixth from right, and fund development officer, Emily Danaher, seventh from right.

Improving service key to Canada Post’s survival Reflections BY JEFF MAGUIRE

in place before the move to sell stock. RM has answered saying it will consider such an arrangement “for a set period.” The UK postal corporation has some impressive statistics to fall back on however. After a dramatic and alarming slide in revenue in recent years, Greene and her staff have not only halted the plunge they appear to have reversed it. RM’s operating profit more than doubled (to £403 million) in the year to March 31, 2013. Greene says the increase has been spurred by growth in Internet sales and parcel delivery revenue. Overall sales have advanced five per cent to reach £9.8 billion. So, what about Canada Post?

This country’s postal monopoly is losing money at the same time as public complaints about poor service are on the increase. Clearly the same technological advances which cut a path of destruction through Europe’s postal systems are also impacting negatively in Canada and North America. One year ago I read a story saying the United States Postal Service, which traces its history back to 1775 and is one of the few government agencies authorized by the U.S. Constitution, was losing over $42 million a day (yes, every 24 hours) in fiscal 2012. There has been no dramatic reversal of fortune south of the border that I am aware of. As a newspaper writer I recall when door-to-door mail delivery service arrived in Carleton Place where we live. It was the 1970s and Canada Post had the mail market to itself. In recent times the corporation has been reducing door-to-door delivery here and across the country. Group boxes are erected in every new subdivision and

this week in

Canada Post, faced with ever declining revenue, is looking for ways to cut its losses. Rural delivery routes are also being abandoned in favour of the so-called “superboxes.” Still, a full one-third of Canadians still get their mail at home. Group boxes have created a two-tiered system which is patently unfair in my opinion. Hand-in-hand with service reductions are increases in postage costs which are, frankly, ludicrous. For example, have you mailed a card or letter to the UK recently? We do quite often and have done for years. But my wife is now balking saying the rising cost of stamps makes sending items through the post impractical. At the same time the cost of sending larger parcels overseas has reached a ridiculous level. I read a recent column critical of Canada Post in which the writer noted that “a monopoly that loses money is a remarkable feat.” I disagree to some extent. With email and texting rendering letters to the point

of impractical, along with the proliferation of courier services who will take packages virtually anywhere very quickly (for a price of course) the linchpin of Canada Post’s success has been pulled. Better service I believe Canada Post should be following the models which are showing remarkable success in Europe. It’s true that technology is hurting postal services. But for some people, particularly the ever expanding numbers of seniors who are comfortable using the mail, letters remain a viable option. If Canada Post improves its flagging efficiency that is! In this day and age no one is going to put up with lengthy delivery delays. Most people will pay more to obtain faster service. It is a big issue but I think it’s high time our postal corporation closely examines its questionable practices and moves into the 21st century.

Lifestyle – I hate to see anyone put out of a job, especially in this day and age when cuts to the work force in so many businesses is commonplace. But in the case of Canada Post and the union which delivers our mail I believe the handwriting is on the wall unless changes are made. As its counterparts in so many other developed nations have already experienced, Canada Post is rapidly losing customers. Naturally that trend eventually turns to red ink on the balance sheet and Canada Post losses continue to mount. In fact the Ottawa-based Conference Board of Canada, which researches, analyzes and makes predictions about economic trends, is projecting annual losses of $1 billion for this country’s postal corporation by the end of the decade. It’s a trend which has already claimed postal monopolies in other countries, notably European nations such as Germany and the Netherlands. New Zealand was a forerunner in this regard. Mail service on the island nation was privatized nearly two decades ago. Now the government in the United Kingdom has confirmed it will sell a majority stake in the venerable Royal Mail (RM) which has served the British Isles for an incredible 360 years. A public offering will be made. In this case staff will get 10 per cent of the shares free on condition they hold them for three years. Retail investors will be offered stock on the same terms as institutional buyers. The plan is expected to raise at least £2 billion ($3.2 billion CDN). British media sources say the sale of RM will be the biggest UK privatization since the then government turned British Rail over to private enterprise in the 1990s. From my point of view allowing private companies to run the trains in Britain appears to have worked quite well, although some of our friends and acquaintances there would give me an argument. I have commented on Royal Mail’s declining market previously in this space. The reality is that with surface mail volume in the UK down dramatically, due to the influence of email and other electronic services, something had to give. The chief executive officer of Royal Mail is Moya Greene, a former Canadian businesswoman. She welcomes the public offering proposed by the government which she hopes will make the operation much more competitive. RM has already adapted its former letter-focused network by zeroing in on the more lucrative package shipping market. Privatized services such as Deutsche Post of Germany have already achieved major success in that growing market. Deutsche Post and Austria Post have also achieved amazing results with letter delivery in recent times. They now deliver over 95 per cent of letters the next day according to RM data given to Parliamentarians in London. Greene heralds the current plan. She recently told Bloomberg News, “Our employees will have a meaningful stake in the company and its future success. The public will have the opportunity to invest in a great British institution.” Critics weigh in However the business spokesperson for the opposition Labour Party has criticized the plan saying RM is being sold “on the cheap” to raise needed cash in the wake of the failure of the government’s economic plan for the corporation. Not surprisingly the union which represents British postal workers says it will fight the plan. They have already threatened strike action unless “legally binding assurances on terms and conditions” are

Clark criticizes OPP works to combat government’s teen victimization energy policies

themselves. NeedHelpNow posters are being distributed by OPP detachments for schools to display, to help raise awareness. The OPP is also distributing a business card with information in communities across the province to promote this program. “As a public safety organization, we have great concern for the safety of any teen victimized by the distribution of photographs on the Internet and we will provide support in any way we can. The OPP will use every avenue available to promote NeedHelpNow. ca as a potential resource for teens,” said OPP Commissioner Chris Lewis. “Teens need to realize the short and long term risks of sending out inappropriate or illegal photographs. Those who distribute such photos also need to be aware of the possible criminal ramifications of doing so. The OPP strongly supports any initiative to enhance awareness of this issue, and possibly prevent tragic outcomes in the future,” commented Inspector Scott Naylor, OPP Child Sexual Exploitation Unit police advisor to the Canadian Centre for Child Protection. Submitted by the Ontario Provincial Police.

News – The Wynne government’s green energy folly reached a new low this week when it was revealed wind turbine companies are being paid not to produce power, said Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark. “This sums up what a debacle and an utter failure the McGuinty-Wynne energy policies have been,” said Clark. “If the mess they’ve made of the province’s electricity sector weren’t sending people’s hydro bills through the roof and costing us goodpaying jobs, it would be a joke.” Through a process known as “dispatching,” the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) now has the ability to turn wind generation on and off, but Clark noted the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) has confirmed producers will be paid even when turbine blades stop spinning. “Remember, these turbines were forced onto communities against their will. The expensive subsidies paid to renewable power generators are crippling our economy and wind power is unreliable and unavailable when demand is highest,” said Clark. “Now, on top of all of those problems, we find out that producers will profit even when their turbines are idle.” Clark said affordable energy is essential if we’re going to rebuild Ontario’s economy, particularly the manufacturing sector, and he again called on the government to scrap the Green Energy Act. “Soaring electricity rates make it harder for Ontario manufacturers, including those in Leeds-Grenville, to compete. Continuing these policies is nothing short of economic suicide,” stressed Clark. “Affordable energy must be a top priority, but it isn’t for this government.” Earlier this year, Clark met with representatives from area industries to talk about the negative impact of soaring energy rates. “Businesses from Gananoque to Cardinal, from Brockville to Kemptville are being contacted regularly by New York State to move their businesses to the other side of the St. Lawrence River. And cheaper power is a prime message in those enticements,” said Clark. The situation has grown even worse since those meetings, explained Clark, as the Global Adjustment surcharge – where expensive renewable energy subsidies and the cost of the gas plants cancellation are recovered – nearly doubled to 8.72 cents per kilowatt hour in September. “The Auditor General and several independent studies of the government’s green energy policies have come to the same conclusion: it’s a costly failure,” said Clark. “Paying someone for nothing is just more evidence that this government has no idea what it’s doing.” In contrast, Ontario PCs have outlined a detailed affordable energy plan in a Paths to Prosperity discussion paper released last year. It can be viewed at ontariopc.com/policy. Submitted by the office of LeedsGrenville MPP Steve Clark.

News – Young people who create and send sexual images through social media can often find themselves overwhelmed by the circumstances. Teens can experience fear, despair and victimization after engaging in self-peer exploitation or ‘sexting’ and cyber bullying. A website has been developed to help young people manage the helplessness they feel when they realize the negative consequences that can occur when they create and send sexual images through social media. The Canadian Centre for Child Protection (CCCP) has created a web-based, bilingual resource at www. NeedHelpNow.ca. This website is a place where teens can turn to find out how to regain control over what can quickly become a frightening and overwhelming experience. The website provides young people with practical advice and helpful information to manage the harassment they might feel over what they may have done online. The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is supporting this important initiative to enhance safety and help reduce fear and despair among young people. NeedHelpNow.ca provides strategies to empower youth to take action to protect

Getting slapped in different ways from your car turer trying to reduce engine weight by shortening the skirt on the pistons (the sides of the pistons that extend pass the point where theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re attached to the connecting rod). If the engine is not consuming oil or experiencing performance problems due to loss of compression, and the noise is simply piston slap, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d leave an eightyear-old motor alone rather than going to the major expense of an overhaul. Predicting how long the engine will last requires my crystal ball which is in the shop right now. Avoid using thicker engine oil as it may worsen the problem if it further gums up the piston rings. While web chat rooms and owner forums might have some number of discussions on this topic, as a rule the Acura power-train of this era had few major internal problems. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hi Brian, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve owned my 2013 Subaru Outback 2.5l for a year now at 15,040 km. I brought it to the dealer for its biannual service (12 months/20,000 km) which, according to the original warranty/maintenance booklet is type B service. Type B service includes: â&#x20AC;&#x153;remove, inspect and service front and rear brakesâ&#x20AC;?. However, an updated Subaru maintenance schedule suggests B servicing at 30,000 km with only an oil change, etc. (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Aâ&#x20AC;? service) at 20,000km. The difference in cost is approximately $250. It was suggested that my somewhat low mileage means the brakes arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t being cleaned by typical braking action. However, it seems counterintuitive to take my vehicle out for a drive every two or three days just to keep the brakes scoured because other factors would come into

play: for example, unnecessary use of gas, wear and tear on other parts, etc. It is certainly more convenient and perhaps less expensive just to pay for brake servicing every year...Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m left with some questions and hopefully you can shed some light on this topic. Does brake servicing at 15,000 km seem reasonable given a maintenance booklet suggestion of either 20,000 or 30,000 km and what happens if such servicing is declined â&#x20AC;&#x201C; does it lead to premature brake wear? Does a drive every few days (and for how long?) require some hard braking to clean the brakes and does this increase wear on other parts of the brakes. Most of my driving is on highways and rural roads to find paddling/kayaking spots rather than around town with

Any routine maintenance to the brakes should be determined by a physical inspection by a qualified technician. These check-ups take very little time and most service providers offer them at discounted package pricing with seasonal oil changes or winter tire changeovers. Following this method means spending hard-earned money only when necessary and keeping you and your passengers safe. If your vehicle is stationary for more than a few days at a time, make sure itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parked on a well drained surface or under cover to reduce the amount of rust that forms on brake rotors or discs.

50 per cent (a guess) of mileage occurring in the summer.â&#x20AC;? Many thanks for your input, Brian. Stephen There are always hairs to split when it comes to the topic of vehicle maintenance. On one side the automakers try to promote the lowest costs to make their products more appealing. On another front, dealership service personnel are trying to ensure their customers get the most out of their vehicles, and in the other corner is a sometimes befuddled customer, confused by mixed messages. First, while your mileage may be below Canadian averages, putting on over 15 km in just a year is enough driving to exercise every area, component, and system on your Subaru including the brakes. Wheel-brake components for all their technological advances are still prone to the ravages of Canadian winters and our appetite for asphalt salt. This leads to the need for cleaning and lubrication services. While car makers may have designed a lifespan or maintenance schedule into every part of their vehicles, sometimes it boils down to common sense over blind adherence to a strict set of guidelines.

Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hi Brian, I have a 2006 Acura TL (168,000 km) that I recently took back to the dealer for some routine service, including timing belt, when I was checking I mentioned that I thought the engine had been sounding somewhat noisy lately (ticking sound) and maybe the valves needed adjustment, they agreed to have a look. A few hours later I received a call from the service rep and he informed me the valves did not need adjustment and the ticking noise that I was hearing was something called piston slap, as he described it as piston banging against the cylinder wall. I asked what it would take to repair this problem and he said a costly upper engine overhaul and that it would better just to drive it as is as to invest a lot of money into the engine. I was not impressed. I â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Googledâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; the problem and there seems some history with 2005 and 2006 Acura TL engines with piston slap. My questions: What is the cause of piston slap? How long will the engine last? What happened to quality Honda engines?â&#x20AC;? Regards Bruce First, piston slap is found to some degree in just about every internal combustion engine. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s caused by lateral or sideways movement of the piston in its cylinder. True piston slap noise will match the engine speed in terms of frequency and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s usually loudest on cold starts and lessens somewhat at the engine warms up. Sometimes piston-rings that have become stuck in their grooves due to carbon build-up can cause this noise, but usually itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s due to a manufac-

UCDSB awards honour legacy of late Ted Kennedy last year in honour of Kennedy, a veteran superintendent and principal with the Upper Canada District School Board. Kennedy was the founder of the board’s Terry Fox Staff Challenge fundraising relay and held the cause of Terry Fox close to his heart. Kennedy passed away in 2011. “We thought this award was a fitting tribute to Ted’s passion for the Terry Fox Foundation and cancer research,” said Coombs. Due in large part to Kennedy’s dedication to the cause, UCDSB schools have raised more than $600,000 for the Terry Fox Foundation over the past 10 years. Last year alone, UCDSB staff and students raised more than $75,000. South Crosby Public School principal Monique AntoineHartley said it is a great hon-

our for her school to win the award, which was accepted by Antoine-Hartley and teacher Amy Whalen. “It is with great pride that the South Crosby staff, students and community accept

ing our students to give back to the community. Cancer has touched so many of the South Crosby community that the dream of eradicating this horrible disease is a strong motivator.”

The award was accepted on behalf of the high school by teachers Karl and Chantal Armstrong. Submitted by the Upper Canada District School Board.

LCBO raises Don’t be fooled, The Family is a mob movie funds for VON

My Take MARK HASKINS

It’s a task they have a hard time with. Which makes federal agent Robert Stansfield’s (Tommy Lee Jones) job that much harder. Of course it can be the smallest of things that trips you up. I’ll give Luc Besson credit for pushing the envelope. The Family attempts to push those boundaries that define what a mafia movie, a family movie, and a comedy are. It’s an edgy film that’s hard to describe and even harder to wrap your head around. It has its funny moments. They’re disturbingly funny, but funny none-the-less. It has its heartwarming moments. It also has its violent moments, and it’s a brutal remorseless violence. Personally I enjoyed The Family because of its edginess and dark humour. I’m not sure what it says about our society where we can accept a family of psychopaths as empathetic characters, but I liked the movie. With a tricky film like this you need a talented cast.

Robert De Niro could play a gangster in his sleep. His ability to go from loving father to violent sociopath is astounding. Michelle Pfeiffer captures the hard-core mafia wife and the understanding mother perfectly. Tommy Lee Jones is the quintessential federal agent and John D’Leo gives a breakout performance. The real standout for me though is Dianna Agron. Her character really defines what this film is about. Belle is every inch the mafia princess, and she is unquestionably her father’s daughter, but she’s also looking to escape this madness. Agron captures it all in a spellbinding performance. A lot of people would have gone to The Family expecting a comedy thanks to a misguided advertising department that didn’t really understand the film. The Family is not a comedy. It’s a mob movie. An odd mob movie, but a mob movie just the same. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

News – Starting Sept. 15, the public can support the Victorian Order of Nurses (VON), Canada’s leading national home and community care charity, by making a donation at any of the 635 LCBO stores throughout Ontario. Donation boxes for VON will be displayed at LCBO checkout counters until Oct. 12. “There is no other national not-for-profit organization like VON,” according to John Gallinger, president and chief executive officer (CEO), VON Canada. “We are so pleased that the LCBO is partnering with us to raise the funds that enable VON to provide professional nursing services and community programs that make such a difference in the lives of so many Canadians.” Gallinger added, “LCBO’s province-wide store network and supportive staff help us to raise significant funds and increase public awareness of VON’s programs. We appreciate the support from LCBO, its employees, and especially from its customers who are committed to helping their own communities.” VON assists people by enabling them to return home from the hospital sooner. We help keep patients in their homes as long as possible, to live independently, or to die with dignity. VON’s 5,000 staff and 9,000 volunteers work in communities across the country making an important impact on the lives of people. Some of VON’s programs include: Meals-on-Wheels, adult day programs, palliative visiting, Neighbours Helping Neighbours, specialized senior exercise programs to build balance, reduce falls and increase health outcomes, and many more. “As a good neighbour, LCBO is pleased to partner with VON and support this worthy cause,” says LCBO president and CEO Bob Peter. “Through the generosity of LCBO customers and staff, we help improve the lives of countless Ontarians and make a difference where we live and work.” The Victorian Order of Nurses is one of 28 provincial and numerous local charities that will benefit from LCBO’s provincewide donation box program in 2013. In 2012, LCBO raised a total of more than $6.6 million for charities through special programs and initiatives, of which $6.1 million of this was raised through in-store fundraising. In addition, LCBO’s annual dividend transfer to the Ontario government, which totaled $1.7 billion in fiscal 2012-13, excluding taxes, supports a wide range of important government programs, services and priorities, including health care and education. VON thanks the public for its support when shopping at their local LCBO store from Sept. 15 to Oct. 12. Submitted by LCBO.

MOVIE: The Family STARRING: Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, Dianna Agron, John D’Leo and Tommy Lee Jones DIRECTOR: Luc Besson RATING: 14A Arts – I’ve notice a strange phenomenon of late. Movies, TV shows and books are being produced where we the audience are made to feel empathy and even sympathy for a violent psychopath. The Family is that kind of story. The first thing you have to know about The Family is it’s a mob film. It isn’t a comedy, though it has funny moments. It isn’t an action film though a couple of things get blown up. From its characters down to its dialogue, The Family is a mob film. Giovanni Manzoni (Robert De Niro) is a major player in the mafia until he turns evidence and goes into witness protection with his wife Maggie (Michelle Pfeiffer), daughter Belle (Dianna Agron) and son Warren (John D’Leo). His name has been changed to William Blake, and he’s been moving around the south of France trying to stay ahead of the hit men hunting him. It’s late at night when they move into the next sleepy French town. William and the rest of the family have to try to fit in and avoid being noticed.

Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; An Ontario Tour of Irish Palatines, sponsored by the Special Interest Group of the Ontario Genealogical Society, arrived in Mississippi Mills on Sept. 11. Members of the group, many with Irish Palatine roots in this area, come from across Canada and the United States. Also on board were several from the United Kingdom, the County of Limerick in Ireland, as well as Laureen Harper, an Appleton Teskey descendant and wife of our Prime Minister. Other family names of the Irish Palatine pioneers to Ramsay and Pakenham include the Comba, Frizell, Lowe, Millar and Switzer families. The tour, with George Stewart, a descendant of the Comba/Millar family, as their local guide visited Appleton, Almonte, Cedar Hill area and Pakenham village. The owners of the Joseph Teskey house received the group into their home and Almonteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s River Walk oďŹ&#x20AC;ered an enjoyable stroll and photo opportunity for many. Next stop was the Cedar Hill Wesleyan Methodist Cemetery where the Palatine pioneer families are buried and ďŹ nally Pakenham village, home to two of Lanarkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seven wonders. The ladies of St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s provided a hearty lunch in the church hall where exhibits of artifacts, photographs and family histories from the Regional Museum of North Lanark (Appleton) and Archives Lanark ( Drummond Centre) were on display. Above, the tour group is pictured here at Pakenhamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 5-span stone bridge before their return to the Nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital. Mrs. Harper left shortly before this picture was taken as she was hosting the group for tea at 25 Sussex Drive later that afternoon. The group visited other points of interest in eastern Ontario before returning to Toronto Sept. 15.

Almonte water tower gets overhaul; iconic slogan replaced with new logo By KELLY KENT kkent@perfprint.ca

News – A little piece of history was lost recently as the iconic slogan “Almonte, the friendly town” was sanded off the water tower as part of its ongoing renovations. Work on the tower started on Sept. 4 and will continue over the course of four to five weeks until mid to late October, according to Troy Dunlop, director of roads and public works in Mississippi Mills. “This is a complete renovation of the water tower,” he said, “right down to a new coat of paint on the access doors.” The town’s water tower is in for a complete restoration on both the inside and the outside, which it was in desperate need of, said Dunlop. Restoration on water towers should occur every 20 years, and since Almonte’s water tower was constructed in 1992, it was overdue for work. “This will be the first time since its construction that the tower will be updated,” Dunlop said. Using a powerful pressure washer, a company called MacDonald Applicators out of New Brunswick will thoroughly clean all of the tank’s surfaces, grind all of the

loose paint and other material off both the inside and outside of the tower, take care of any repairs and then apply new finishes and paint. A new logo chosen by Mississippi Mills town council will take the place of the familiar slogan. The new logo will be predominantly blue, green and white with the word “friendly” on a slight slant above the word “Almonte,” which will be written in large, black type. Underneath “Almonte,” in smaller lettering will be the words “Mississippi Mills” and a small logo to signify the amalgamation of the three wards. The $450,000 project involves draining the 625,000 gallon tank while the crew works on the interior. The tank was emptied on Wednesday, Sept. 11 and will remain empty for a period of two to three weeks. “The tank is just a reservoir,” said Dunlop. “We are still able to supply domestic and peak needs without the tower for this time period.” The town draws water from five separate wells to supply the town and during the time that the tower is drained they will be monitored 24 hours a day to ensure everything is running smoothly.

Community leader passes away By KELLY KENT kkent@perfprint.ca

News – Mississippi Mills is feeling the loss of Mary Rosamond Hugessen, a woman whose constant devotion to the town over the years will be greatly missed. Mary passed away suddenly on Sunday, Sept. 15 at the age of 80 and is survived by her husband of 55 years, the former Chief of Justice Jim Hugessen and her five children. She will be remembered as a key

Team

member in many aspects of the community through her professional career as a chairperson at the Almonte General Hospital and her tireless volunteer work. A ceremony in honour of Mary will be held at St. Paul’s Church in Almonte on Saturday, Sept. 21 at 2 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that memorial donations be made to the Almonte General Hospital. Watch for Mary’s memorial article in an upcoming issue of the Canadian Gazette.

There are water restrictions in place, however, but they are just an extension of the regular restrictions put on water use in the summer months in Mississippi Mills. Beginning in the spring, restrictions are put on the time periods that locals can water their lawns and plants: odd numbered houses may water on odd calendar days between 5 a.m. and 9 a.m. and also between 7 p.m. and 11 p.m.; even numbered houses may do the same on even calendar days. Normally these restrictions are lifted after September, but with the renovations on the water tower the date will be extended through October. “All normal activities such as bathing and cooking are not restricted,” said Dunlop. “The town has enough water to supply domestic use. But there will be no bulk water purchasing allowed during the time that the tower is under construction.” Dunlop said that a water tower will generally be used for 50 years before it has to be replaced, meaning that Mississippi Mills should see at least one more full renovation before a new tower is built.

The water tower in Almonte is undergoing a full renovation during the months of September and October. Above, the iconic slogan, “Almonte, the friendly town,” has been sanded off after more than 20 years by a company from New Brunswick, who will conduct a complete overhaul of the tower. The renovations include both the interior and exterior and even a fresh coat of paint to the access doors. Below, the new concept logo for the tower was chosen by the town’s council.

on Sept. 14 at the Market Square and Wool’ Growers’ property. The event was hugely successful. With significant prize money at stake, six competitors battled it out in five events: log lift, 20-ton truck pull, 600-pound farmers’ walk, 400-pound Husafell Stone and overhead 200-pound dumbbell press. Local resident and developer Volunder (Wally) Thorbjornsson organized the contest. He and Ver Magnusson are lifelong friends. No stranger to the sport, Sam Dubé was the announcer. Thorbjornsson would like to turn the strongman competition into an annual event – an international competition at the highest level. He had hoped for good weather and a great turnout for the competition. He got both.

Second Mississippi Mills Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup Sept. 21 By KELLY KENT kkent@perfprint.ca

Community – The river that runs through Mississippi Mills – and that lends its name to the town – is an integral part of the community. In fact, the town would likely not exist if the river did not. These are just some of the reasons why a group of locals are working so hard to maintain the Mississippi River and have organized the second annual Great

Canadian Shoreline Cleanup. The event, which will be held the morning of Sept. 21, is being organized by Mike O’Malley, a member of the Mississippi Mills Riverwatchers, who feels the river is an important feature in the community that needs to be preserved. “It’s all about getting people out on the river so they can really get a feel for how beautiful it really is,” O’Malley said. Starting from its base site at the Almonte Fairgrounds at 9 a.m., volunteers can either stick around

to clean up along the shoreline in town or board a shuttle bus to Appleton where teams will begin the three-hour paddle up the river and back to Almonte. Registration for the event begins at 8:30 a.m. and is completely free; O’Malley said he just encourages families to come out and enjoy a fun-filled, proactive day. Participants in the event will scour the shoreline and the waters of the stretch of the Mississippi between Appleton and Almonte for trash and fill bags to bring

back to the base in Almonte. Groups who choose to shuttle to Appleton will kayak or canoe up the river, cleaning as they go. A few boats will be provided, but O’Malley hopes that families who can will bring their own. “It would be helpful if those who already canoe or kayak could bring their boats and lifejackets and paddle the river while participating in the cleanup,” he said. There will be a large safety crew along the river at various points to assist paddlers as they

make the trek. After the cleanup, at noon, there will be a potluck and barbecue lunch at the base site. Local businesses have donated some food items but O’Malley said he encourages families to bring a dish if they want to. A children’s scavenger hunt hosted by the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists; prizes will be awarded to the kids with the most points. Prizes will also be awarded for the weirdest trash found throughout the cleanup. Last year

a group of bicycles pulled from the river took the top prize. Last year, at the first event held in Mississippi Mills, 40 volunteers pulled more than a half-ton of garbage from the river. This year, O’Malley says the event should bring out more than 200 volunteers. “This is a pretty critical part of our community and we hope to maybe get people to see that,” O’Malley said. “Maybe then they’ll think twice about throwing a can into the water and littering.”

Professional pet photos to benefit LAWS By TARA GESNER tgesner@perfprint.ca

Community – Wipe the slobber, get out the brush, it’s picture time! Two- and four-legged creatures are teaming up to raise money for the Lanark Animal Welfare Society (LAWS) as Picture it Studio in Carleton Place hosts a unique photographic event on Oct. 4 and 5. With Christmas just around the corner, studio owner and professional photographer Dalene Gallo will be shooting fun, natural and expressive holiday pet pictures. “We have Christmas wear for families that are thinking ahead for Christmas cards and family photos,” she said. Located in Smiths Falls, LAWS has been caring for abused, abandoned and

GOLF CLASSIC 2013

lost animals for more than 35 years. It is one of two no kill shelters in all of Ontario. Operating expenses are nearly $75,000 to $80,000 monthly, and approximately $40,000 is spent on veterinary care. “This will be the third fundraiser we’ve done in studio for LAWS,” said Gallo, “and on average we raise approximately $200 to $250 per event.” Individual photo appointments will be scheduled between 12 and 8 p.m. on Friday and 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. on Saturday.

Community – Residents of Mississippi Mills can forget about keeping a close eye on the weather forecasts this winter, unlike their neighbours in Carleton Place. At the Committee of the Whole meeting Sept. 3, a motion was carried that recommended council approve the status quo for winter parking restrictions in Mississippi Mills instead of adopting a forecast-based parking restriction system like Carleton Place and Ottawa have done. Over the summer, the road and public works department in Mississippi Mills began researching forecast-based parking restrictions to see whether the system would be beneficial to the town. What they found was that the current system is not only more efficient, but more cost-effective.

According to a report filed at the meeting by Troy Dunlop, the town’s director of roads and public works, Mississippi Mills currently sets overnight parking bans on all roadways from 1:30 to 7 a.m. beginning on Nov. 1 of each year and not lifting until April 15. This system allows all roads to be cleared without interruption and as it is needed. In the fall of 2011, Carleton Place adopted Ottawa’s forecast-based parking restriction that implements an overnight parking ban when Environment Canada forecasts a range of snowfall that could see seven centimetres or more of snow. Currently, Carleton Place follows Ottawa’s forecasts and implements parking restrictions whenever the city’s forecasted snowfall calls for it. The roads and public works department worked with the Town of Carleton Place to determine the

pros and cons of such a system. They found several reasons to stick to the status quo, as were outlined in the report. One of the concerns of the department was that as a town, Mississippi Mills often sees minor snowfalls or freezing rain that still need to be dealt with for roads to be in prime condition for use. But because overnight parking bans are only implemented when the forecast calls for more than seven centimetres of snow with a forecast-based system, the roads would not be clear for work during these weather conditions. The department also found that the cost of the alternative system could be significantly more than that of the current system because of the rise in towing costs. In Carleton Place, the municipality absorbs the cost of towing and bylaw enforcement. Dunlop and his

department said they feel Mississippi Mills could not absorb these costs without substantial fines. Without much deliberation, the committee carried a motion to recommend that council approve option one outlined in the report, which would allow the town to continue with the status quo of blanket overnight parking restrictions. Coun. Alex Gillis, who chaired the meeting, asked whether or not the dates for the status quo restrictions could be reviewed to keep up with the town’s current weather trends. He said that the starting date of Nov. 1 was too early to implement parking restrictions, while Dunlop added that Mississippi Mills has also seen heavy snowfall after April 15 when the bans are lifted. Dunlop says that there is a possibility that these dates can be reviewed in the future to adjust to current trends.

Design plan for lands up for discussion tgesner@perfprint.ca

News – Carleton Place council at the physical environment committee and planning and protection committee meetings on Tuesday, Sept. 3 discussed the following items. A draft conceptual design plan for the area south of Highway 7 in Carleton Place will be presented at an open house on Tuesday, Sept. 24, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the town hall, and to council at the policy review committee meeting that follows Everyone is welcome to attend. Ottawa’s ByTown Engineering was engaged to prepare a conceptual design plan for the area south of Highway 7, including the town’s new 35 acres of employment land at Highway 7 and Highway 15. Property owners in the area will use the plan to assist them with the submission of development applications. Earlier this year, the municipality entered into an agreement with the County of Lanark for the southerly extension of McNeely Avenue to link Highway 7 and Highway 15. The initiative will alleviate traffic congestion and promote further commercial and residential development. “This is very significant for our community,” said Mayor Wendy LeBlanc at the time. “It is initially opening upwards of 200 acres for more residential and more highway commercial development in that area.” The expansion will result in a multi-way intersection. The town

will name the new east/west road Captain A. Roy Brown Boulevard. Brown is the community’s most famous resident, the First World War flying ace officially credited with shooting down German pilot Baron Manfred von Richthofen (the Red Baron) on April 21, 1918, in the skies over war-torn France. Bug off The Carleton Place Urban Forest/River Corridor Committee (CPUF/RCC) will offer assistance to the town with the development of a local action plan, following the discovery of the Emerald Ash Borer beetle at the cell tower on Cavanagh Road as well as the compost yard, located off Patterson Crescent. Metallic green is the colour of the Emerald Ash Borer beetle. An exotic bug, adults nibble on ash foliage, causing little damage. However, larvae feed on the inner bark of ash trees, disrupting the flow of nutrients as they ascend the trunk. In the end, the trees die. Resident Jim McCready chairs the CPUF/RCC. The municipality has been prohibited by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) from moving the ash trees or the wood from the ash trees from the property, as this will help control the spread of the insect. “They also say that the wood chips at the compost yard cannot be removed from the yard,” he added. They expect the order to be removed in April 2014.” Appreciation night The Town of Carleton Place is already preparing for its 2013

Appreciation Night, scheduled for Friday, Dec. 6. Responsibilities to be assigned: invitation list, food and beverage, coat check, decorations, entertainment, program, emcee and more. Previously, the mayor has said the Appreciation Night should be a day after day occurrence, as the town’s employees and volunteers are second to none. During the festivities, the municipality hands out the long service awards, honours employees with perfect attendance, and announces the Citizen of the Year. In 2012, the Citizen of the Year was Ronette Vines. At the time, Debby Lytle, the municipality’s 2011 Citizen of the Year, described Vines as “someone who always steps forward to help when help is needed, whether it be organizing, fundraising, manual labour or a kind and encouraging word.” The Appreciation Night is typically held at the Neelin Street Community Centre. Quiet month Ocean Wave Fire Company (OWFC) chief Les Reynolds called July “a relatively quiet month.” He noted one serious motor vehicle collision on Highway 7 in which the local fire brigade provided mutual aid to Lanark Highlands Fire Service. On July 25, a crash involving three vehicles happened near Fergusons Falls Road in the Township of Lanark Highlands. A 27-year-old Mississippi Mills woman was pronounced

Hillier makes principled stand Editorial – Now Randy Hillier is on the outside, looking in. The Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox and Addington MPP was unceremoniously dumped by Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak last week as the party’s labour critic for, essentially, speaking his mind. Just what was Randy’s crime? Hudak said that Hillier leaked an internal Tory email to the media, in which he chastised the party for supporting a private members bill being put forward by LambtonKent-Middlesex MPP Monte McNaughton. By doing that, he would have broken caucus confidentiality. The only problem is that Randy still insists he didn’t leak the email to the media. It is interesting that this comes just days before a likely raucous Tory policy convention in London, Ont., where changing the rules for leadership reviews will be voted on. During an earlier internal-party tussle this past August about Hudak’s leadership, a letter Randy had sent to the party executive was

also leaked. In an interview earlier this month with The Perth Courier, Hillier noted, half in jest, whole in earnest, that if he ever had any more concerns to bring to the attention of his fellow Tories, he would think twice about voicing them in an email. Now, Hudak accuses Hillier of not being a team player. If we take Hillier at his word that, in both cases, he did not leak the emails, then, his original intent was more helpful than hurtful. Hillier did want to keep any concerns within the family, and it was only because of constant leaks that these concerns got out. “We do have a problem with brown envelopes here at Queen’s Park,” said Hillier. Also, if Hudak is criticizing Hillier for what he said in his email about McNaughton, why is he only taking him to task now, when the email was sent out in May? Hillier took a principled stand by voting against McNaughton’s bill for two reasons. Firstly, and most importantly, by making a

bizarre sight of standing with 15 New Democrat MPPs against the bill, Hillier was making a point he has made all along – that rules cannot be made for one group of people, and not another. Agree with him or not, but on issues like the Algonquin land claim and unionized workers, and in other areas, he has at least been consistent in this. By giving construction giant EllisDon the freedom to no longer have closed union shops – essentially, allowing this one company to hire non-unionized workers – this bill gives them an advantage over other construction companies. Hillier equated it to a law giving drivers of Honda Civics permission to go 100 km/h on provincial highways, but Ford trucks can only go 80. It would make more sense, and would be in keeping with the party’s free enterprise mantra, to ask that all of Ontario’s construction industry be allowed to hire non-unionized workers. The second reason he was right to vote against this bill was because of his allegation

– unproven, mind you, with so far no other corroborating proof to back it up – that it was implied during a Tory meeting that, by voting for it, EllisDon would reward the party with donations. Two problems with this theory – firstly, EllisDon does give money to the Tories, but gives even more to the Liberals. Secondly, the Liberals also voted en masse in favour of this bill too so, while a Tory MPP proposed it, the party cannot take all of the credit. But, if Hillier’s accusations are real, what message does it send to Ontario voters that Hudak has promoted McNaughton to Hillier’s old job? Hillier may frustrate his critics with what he says, and how he says it. But he is consistent in what he says. By promoting McNaughton, and demoting Hillier for calling it like it is, Hudak seems to be pouring cold water on people who speak up, and encouraging support not for business as a whole, but, unfathomably, only for certain businesses instead.

Community – There’s no doubt that Almonte in a great place for history buffs to get their fix: for more than 130 years the town has been a thriving hub of interesting people, landmarks and events. Tonight (Sept. 19) at the Almonte Civitan Club, history lovers and Almonte fans can enjoy a documentary called Opposite Banks, which tells the story of the Mississippi River and the proposed Enerdu project. Robert Newton and his wife Sharon, founders of Newton Productions, a local film production company, created this documentary as an aside to a two-part documentary on the history of Almonte they have been working on. “We originally were working on the historical documentaries but this Enerdu issue was just so huge that we decided to create a separate film,” Newton said. The film, which will premiere at 7 p.m. for an entry fee of $10, covers both sides of the proposed plan with comments from the Riverwatchers, the developers and tourists. “It’s likely going to ruffle some feathers,” Newton said, “but we wanted to sift down to the bottom line and expose the real truths

behind the issue.” Newton and his wife started work on the film in June of this year, while they were working on other projects. They spent time interviewing people from both sides, as well as neutral tourists. “It’s been a difficult project to work on,” he said. “A lot of people were hesitant to speak with us.” Newton Productions was started in 2003 after Newton found himself curious about the film production industry. Although he and his wife have had no formal training, their previous business was involved in scripting and overview work on producing training videos for large companies like Nortel. Since they began filming documentaries, Newton Productions has covered iconic Mississippi Mills events like Light Up the Night, Puppets Up!, Celtfest and Fibrefest. All of the filming, editing and overall production of each documentary is carried out by Newton and his wife in-house, although he generally passes the narrating off to an outside party. Newton Productions is also getting ready for the premiere of their historical documentary Almonte: Transitions, which is the follow up to their film Almonte’s Interwoven Past, in late November.

The film will cover Almonte’s history from the point where the first film, which premiered in 2012 and covered the era of 1820 to the late ’50s, to the present day. “It was quite a fascinating time for Almonte,” said Newton. “I like to say we went from blue collar to pyjama collar.” The first half of the historical documentary was a big success, prompting Newton to sell DVDs to several interested locals. “This is the first time Almonte’s history has been put on film,” said Newton. “It’s been done in books and such, but it’s never been documented visually.” During the production of Almonte’s Interwoven Past, Newton asked locals to submit old photographs of the area as well as videos and even 8 mm film. He said he’d like to do the same thing with the follow-up. “It would be great if people could submit anything from sort of the late ’50s to the 2000s,” Newton said. For now, though, locals will have to tide themselves over with the Opposite Banks film, which Newton said is sure to be a controversial, must-see hit. “There are some surprising facts in there,” he said. “We’re hoping it will open people’s eyes and help to quell some perhaps, unfounded fears.”

Hummingbirds gone for winter; plenty of other birds to view Lifestyle – Have your Rubythroated Hummingbirds gone yet? Had a nice call from Terri Kotjila on Sept. 5.

In Carleton Place, along the trail leading under McNeely Avenue bridge, Terri spotted a Green Heron. These herons have nested in this area this year. In Appleton, Cliff Bennett, Al Seaman, and Mike O’Malley saw a mature Bald Eagle perched

Dr. Karen Turcotte joins Ottawa Valley Family Health Team Dr. Karen Turcotte has started a family practice in Almonte as part of the Ottawa Valley Family Health Team (OVFHT). Dr. Turcotte joined the OVFHT on September 3, 2013. “I had been working in Almonte and Renfrew in their hospitals’ emergency departments and doing locum coverage,” said Dr. Turcotte. “I knew I would start a family practice at some point, and now is the time.” Dr. Turcotte grew up in Nepean and attended medical school at the University of Toronto. She completed her residency in family medicine at the University of Ottawa in 2011, and began working in Almonte and Renfrew. During her residency, Dr. Turcotte did a rotation with Almonte family physician Dr. Graeme McKillop. “I fell in love with the community,” she said. “Almonte is so friendly and the staff and patients are awesome.” Dr. Turcotte was also attracted to Almonte because of the Family Health Team model and its co-location

Dr. Karen Turcotte with Almonte General Hospital (AGH). “One of the appeals was the comprehensive model,” she said. “I can see patients in the ER, admit them to hospital if required and follow up in the clinic. Having everything under one roof is more efficient.”

Dr. Turcotte is taking new patients, and is also providing care for about 300 patients of Dr. Frank Murphy, who retired in August. If you are interested in becoming a patient of the OVFHT, please contact Health Care Connect and specify that you are interested in joining the OVFHT. Visit the Health Care Connect website at www. health.gov.on.ca and click on “Need a doctor?” You may also call 1-800-445-1822. Dr. Turcotte, who lives in the Carp/March Road area, is an avid athlete who plays hockey and soccer. “Everyone has given me such a warm welcome,” she said. “The start-up of my practice has gone more smoothly than I would have thought possible.” Donor Recognition Event Cancelled The AGH/Fairview Manor Foundation’s September 25, 2013 Donor Recognition/ Equipment Viewing event has been cancelled. For further information, please contact Foundation Executive Director Gerry Huddleston at 613-256-2514, ext. 2297 or by email at ghuddleston@agh-fvm.com.

Business – The Carleton Place & District Chamber of Commerce’s sixth annual Golf Classic raised just over $13,000. The tournament took place last Tuesday, Sept. 10, at the Canadian Golf & Country Club in Ashton. “The weather Gods were on our side,” said Catherine Kuhn, Chamber office administrator. “It was a perfect day for golfing.” Approximately 120 people took part, enjoying a day of fun, competition and networking. “Proceeds will assist with future Chamber programming, staffing, and to increase our member’s profiles in the community,” said Kuhn. What’s more, two bursaries are given out every year – one to Carleton Place High School and one to Notre Dame Catholic High School. Each bursary is valued at $250. The sixth annual Golf Classic was a huge success, and its triumph was due in large part to the big-hearted support and generosity of the community. “The Chamber relies on the active commitment of its members and friends,” said Kuhn. “We couldn’t have done this (tournament) without the support of our members.” The Chamber’s golf committee consisted of Kuhn, Lori Cavanagh, David Chadala, Sylvia Giles, Dawn Lanouette and Donna MacDonald. Chamber staff lending a helping hand were Jackie Kavanagh (office manager) and Amber Hall (Carleton Place Farmers’ Market marketing coordinator). After registration, golfers enjoyed a lunch of smoked meat sandwiches and salads. Tee-off was at 1 p.m. sharp. “Following 18 holes of golf, a delicious roast beef buffet dinner followed inside the clubhouse, along with a live auction and the presentation of prizes,” said Kuhn. She said the Canadian staff went above and beyond. Auctioneer Roger Wills of Auctions R Us got participants excited about the items in the live auction, digging deep into their wallets. “Roger is a Chamber member,” said Kuhn. “He did a great job. He kept the ball rolling.” Items up for bid included an Ottawa Senators ultimate fan pack, day at the spa with benefits, gourmet dinner for six at home, fall tune up, Ottawa Senators gallery suite for 16, dinner and theatre night for four, and cold beer and hot tub delight. Mike Clarke Photography was the official photographer of the day. “Team photos were inserted into photo jackets and placed on dinner tables,” said Kuhn. Everyone had a great time, staying until the very end. “It was a fun, happy crowd,” said Kuhn. “The bar has been set high for next year.” She thanked everyone for a very successful day.

Local church hosts fundraising run Oct. 5 By TARA GESNER tgesner@perfprint.ca

Community – God bless and safe running! St. James Anglican Church in Carleton Place will host its inaugural fundraising run/walk on Saturday, Oct. 5, sponsored by Guy Saumure & Sons Construction Ltd. The construction company is at present building the parish’s new hall. Completion is expected later this month. Kerry Powell, a member of the run organizing committee, said all monies collected through the seven-kilometre run/walk would help fund the addition, along with new furniture, etc. “The idea for the run came from parish member Brian McGregor,” he added, “and we are hoping this will become an annual event.” The run, open to all ages, begins at 9:30 a.m., with a celebratory lunch to follow. “We are starting and finishing at the new hall,” said Powell. “Chili, buns and refreshments

will be served afterwards.” Registration, $25 per participant, is available at the church (right up to the event), located at 225 Edmund St., or online at www.stjamescarletonplace.org (click the PayPal link). “We are capping registrations at 300,” said Powell. A pre-registration event will take place at the parish from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. this Saturday, Sept. 14. The event’s route takes runners/walkers along the scenic Mississippi River, along the boardwalk off McNeely Avenue. “We went with seven kilometres because we wanted a little more than five and a little less than 10,” said Powell. “We didn’t want to do the standard five-kilometre event.” A water/Gatorade station will be located at the halfway point, and St. John’s Ambulance will be on site. The Running Goat in Perth is providing the chip timing. Medals will be awarded to the top age group finishers.

“There will be plenty of prize draws, too,” said Powell. Although the run goes rain or shine, organizers are hopeful for a fun day and fantastic weather. Powell said the run/walk is a wonderful opportunity for people to come out and see the town’s new boardwalk, enjoy food and friendship, win prizes and help raise funds for the new parish hall. “We are hoping to bring in between $2,000 and $3,000,” said Powell. Many parish members are volunteering at the event.

Annual Millworkers’ Reunion to honour industry workers Sept. 21 By KELLY KENT kkent@perfprint.ca

Community – The Town of Mississippi Mills gets its name from the various mills that dot its shoreline along the river, and for a long time our communities revolved around them. Now, years after the last mill in Appleton closed in the early ’90s, the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum is honouring the industry with their second annual Millworkers’ Reunion on Saturday, Sept. 21. “It’s a social event for the locals who used to work in the various mills in the Mississippi Valley,” said Michael Rikley-Lancaster, the director and curator of the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum. The Almonte mill closed in the early 1980s after operating for more than 150 years. Hundreds of people were needed during that time to keep the industry running smoothly. Starting at 2 and running until 4 p.m., former millwork-

ers, their families and their descendants are invited to gather at the museum to mingle, reminisce and enjoy tea and cookies. “The mills closed over 20 years ago,” said RikleyLancaster, “and some of these people haven’t seen each other since then. It’s a great event and brings back a lot of memories for them.” The Barley Shakers, a local band, will be providing live music throughout the event while the millworkers share their historic stories. “We love to hear the stories of what it was like to work in the mills,” Rikley-Lancaster said. “We also encourage people to bring in memorabilia to share as well. It’s just a great opportunity to learn fascinating new things.” Last year, at the first reunion, Rikley-Lancaster said some people brought in old pay stubs, small pieces of machinery and photos. The first event pulled in around 100 people but this

year the museum hopes to see more than 150 people attend the event. “It’s an open invitation to anyone who has worked in the local mills and their families, regardless of how long they were there for or what they were doing” Rikley-Lancaster said. There were a wide range of jobs available at the mills, from small, laborious work to more intricate, complicated projects: people were recruited to change empty bobbins for full ones; to weave or spin the yarn; to clean the equipment; or to chemically dye the fabrics. The event is a free event to show appreciation for the people who worked in the industry that is part of the history of Mississippi Mills, said Rikley-Lancaster. “We’re really looking forward to hosting this event again this year,” he said. “It’s really a fascinating afternoon and we hope to do it again next year.”

PUBLIC NOTICE – WATER RESTRICTIONS DURING RENOVATIONS OF THE ALMONTE WATER TOWER During the months of September and October, the Town of Mississippi Mills will be moving forward with extensive renovations to the Almonte water tower. The renovation project led by McDonald Applicators (New Brunswick) will include a complete cleaning and restoration of the tank coatings as well as various mechanical repairs and upgrades. The scheduled maintenance work involves fully draining the tank, removing all loose paint materials where necessary, and applying new paint finishes throughout all internal and external surfaces. The tower will also be refinished with a new white and blue colour scheme along with a rebranded logo approved by Town Council. The estimated cost of the overall project is $450,000 once all engineering, construction and stand-by costs are factored in. The 625,000 gallon water tower has not been painted since it was originally constructed in 1992, and coating systems are otherwise considered to be past the useful service life. The Town will continue to supply safe and clean drinking water to Almonte residents and businesses for the duration of this major project, however conservation measures will remain in place for the duration of the project.

Program to give patients standardized care By KELLY KENT kkent@perfprint.ca

News – The Almonte General Hospital has recently launched a new program designed to provide better maternity patient care. Managing Obstetrical Risk Efficiently, or MoreOB, is an international program that began standardizing patient care in the maternity field more than 10 years. Almonte General Hospital launched its branch of the program with demonstrations and a cake-cutting ceremony Sept. 4. “The program is designed to help nurses, doctors and other staff to work as a team and to communicate more efficiently,” said Anita Comfort, a registered

nurse with the hospital and one of the program’s core group members. The core group of the hospital’s program branch is made up of nurses who have been volunteering their time to get the ball rolling since early June of this year. “It’s been a lot of work,” Comfort said, “but it’s worth it.” Through modules, training programs and tests, MoreOB teaches hospital staff standardized procedures that are designed to provide a patient with consistent care throughout all medical facilities, from her family doctor to the hospital. “It increases safety for the patient, the baby and, really, the staff too, if everyone

knows exactly what everyone else is doing at all times,” Comfort said. The three-year program teaches doctors, nurses, midwives, anesthesiologists and family doctors various procedures through online modules and field tests. “We do pre-tests before a module to find out what areas we need to work on and post tests after a module to find out how much we improved,” Comfort said. Through the program, all staff must sign up online and work their way through the training on their own time but, Comfort says, everyone will move onto the same module at the same time, to help ensure everyone is on the same page.

Community leaders launch WITS primary program in Carleton Place By TARA GESNER tgesner@perfprint.ca

News – Children at St. Gregory Catholic School in Carleton Place were encouraged to use their WITS on Monday, Sept. 16. In cooperation with administrators and teachers, community leaders spoke to students in Grades 1-3 about the WITS (Walk Away, Ignore, Take it Out, Seek Help) program, a bullying and conflict resolution initiative. “Our community leaders play an important role in the WITS program,” student support worker Mary Lynn Greene said. Monday’s 30-minute assembly marked the third year the program was introduced to children at St. Gregory Catholic School. Presenters included Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Const. Sean Trahan, Ocean Wave Fire Company Deputy Chief Dave Joy, fire prevention officer Matt Anderson and principal Heather Gerber. Invited guests included bus drivers and schoolyard monitors. “The (WITS) posters are on the buses,” Greene said, “and drivers are using the language.” She said the program equips children with the tools to deal with bullying conflicts, while reassuring them that if they can’t deal with the situation on their own, there are people they can turn to for help. The WITS swearing-in ceremony began with presenters introducing themselves and briefly explaining their role in the community.

“Our job is fire prevention – to stop fires before they happen,” Joy said. “Just like WITS is meant to stop bullying before it happens.” Anderson told students he would return in two weeks with Sparky the Fire Dog to talk about the importance of fire prevention. “What’s my job?” Trahan asked students. Answers included helping people, catching robbers, stopping people from speeding and putting people in jail. “I make sure people follow the law,” said the community services officer. “The law keeps us safe.” Before being deputized as WITS special constables, Trahan taught students how to stand at attention and salute, as well as the program’s secret handshake and password. Gerber read Walrus’s Gift by H.E. Stewart, a kind-hearted story about a young walrus who befriends a lonely human child and teaches him some important lessons about seeking help and finding strength within. The most important part of becoming a WITS special constable involved youngsters standing at attention, placing their right flipper (hand) over their heart and repeating the WITS oath: “I promise to use my WITS, to walk away, talk it out and seek help when I’m dealing with teasing and bullying. I promise to also help other kids use their WITS to keep my school and my community a safe and fun place to be and learn.” Lastly, students received their special constable badges.

Inaugural childhood cancer walk attracts large contingent of support By LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com

Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The inaugural walk for childhood cancer took place at Carleton Place on Saturday, Sept. 14 with more than 200 people out to support the cause. Dubbed a family affair by organizer Tammy Devlin, whose son Dylan recently completed his cancer treatment for non-Hodgkinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lymphoma, wanted to give something back to the community that came through for her and the family, raising some $15,000 to aid in Dylanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recovery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just wanted to do something to give back,â&#x20AC;? Devlin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This has really been overwhelming today, to see everything come together.â&#x20AC;?

But the cancer didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop there. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in her lymph nodes and lungs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Her prognosis is good though.

Grassroot Grannies hold annual Ride to Turn the Tide bike tour fundraiser By JENNIFER WESTENDORP jwestendorp@perfprint.ca

News – From grandmother to grandmother, despite an ocean in between. The Grassroot Grannies, one of more than 250 different granny groups across Canada, believe in supporting other grandmothers in need. “We feel so fortunate to live in Canada,” said Nancy Hough, a group member.

The group supports the Grandmother to Grandmother campaign, which was started by the Stephen Lewis Foundation. The campaign helps African grandmothers who have buried their own children because of HIV/ AIDS and then struggle to raise orphaned grandchildren alone. Hough said she sympathizes with the grandmothers the group supports because she knows how much energy it takes to care for a young child. She said taking

her grandchildren for a few days is nice, but then she gets to send them home to their parents. The grandmothers in need don’t have that option. The Grassroot Grannies believe in maintaining solidarity amongst grandmothers. “As we get older, we have more time to give back,” said Hough. The reason the group supports the foundation is because 90 per cent of the funds raised go to the projects, meaning there is very

little overhead. Since 2003, the foundation has supported over 300 projects in 15 countries. One of the members, Lina Woods, went to Africa last year to volunteer in the Hillcrest Aids Centre. “I was able to see that the money we send benefits the people,” said Woods. Woods said there were sewing machines at the centre, purchased with money from the foundation, being used to make school uniforms for children. She said the grandmothers were also being taught to knit, cook, garden and do bead work. “Their philosophy is to create income generating projects, not just to give money,” said Woods. Woods said there is so much stigma surrounding AIDS. “I had all kinds of nice experiences while there,” said Woods. Woods said it is rewarding to see the African grandmothers, as they become stronger themselves, begin to help other people in their own communities. “Unfortunately, some of the grandmothers are dying and kids

are becoming the head of the household,” said Woods. “We have it so good here.” The group raised about $43,000 for the foundation by doing a three-day bike tour fundraiser, called the Ride to Turn the Tide, which stopped in Merrickville on Sept. 5. People have been donating to the cause since July by going to www.grassrootgrannies.com. “The vision for this ride came from a granny group out West that does a similar ride,” said Hough. “My husband and I met two women from that group while vacationing in Cuba. That’s where I got the idea to start a ride of our own.” The event consisted of 22 cyclists, all members of the group, although not all grandmothers. Each participant paid for their own accommodations and food during the trip, so all fundraising proceeds went to the foundation. This is the fourth year the group stopped at the Merrickville United Church, where all the members were served lunch, during the ride.

The tour began in Kanata on Sept. 4 and passed through Ashton, Appleton and Almonte. The group spent the night in Perth, after cycling 95 kilometres. In the morning, the group left for Merrickville and continued on to Metcalfe, completing the longest leg of the trip, totalling 115 kilometers. On Sept. 6, the group travelled from Metcalfe, back to Kanata, finishing off the remaining 55 kilometres of the tour. The ride had four corporate sponsors; realtor Joan Smith, funeral home owner Brian McGarry, financial advisor Renaldo Saikali and owner of Bushtukah in Kanata Bob Laughton. A volunteer of the Merrickville United Church, Lee Davidson, said they are always happy to see the Grassroot Grannies rolling through town for a good cause. “It’s wonderful to see them come in,” said Davidson. “We get to know each of them a little better each year.” If you wish to donate to the cause, please visit the above mentioned website to do so.

Local band brings Mardi Gras to Almonte By KELLY KENT kkent@perfprint.ca

Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Mardi Gras isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t something the average person would associate with the small, quaint town of Almonte, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s there, under the surface, if you know where to look. Mumbo Jumbo Voodoo Combo is Almonteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very own blues band, which specializes in music straight out of New Orleans. The four-piece band fronted by singer and drummer Steve Lund wanted to do something that no one else in the area was doing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so they took inspiration from the iconic and individual southern city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We play funky, syncopated Mardi Gras music, with a little Reggae and Latin influence,â&#x20AC;? said Lund, 61. The group is getting ready to release its newest album, called â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Beast Ofâ&#x20AC;Ś,â&#x20AC;? which Lund said is a compilation of their crowd favourites, at an event and dance at the Almonte Old Town

Hall on Friday, Sept. 20. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People were always asking me which CD they should buy,â&#x20AC;? Lund said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and I never knew what to tell them so we put our most requested songs on one album.â&#x20AC;? The band has released four albums of their eclectic style of music since they got together in 1991, and this new album will be a sort of one-stop shop for people wanting to bring their live act home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The album reads more like a live set,â&#x20AC;? Lund said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s put in an order that I would play at a live gig.â&#x20AC;? With more than 60 songs in the repertoire, some of which theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never played live, there are many songs to root through to sift to the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;greatest hits,â&#x20AC;? although Lund wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t call them that. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never had an actual hit,â&#x20AC;? Lund said, laughing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re allowed to call them that.â&#x20AC;? Beginning at 8 p.m. on Friday, the doors to the old town hall will open and the band, made up of four members

Although they originated in Ottawa, founder and Juno-award winner Lund has lived in Almonte for the last 12 years and tries to play as many gigs locally as possible. Lund says that most of the band members are full time musicians, but havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had much formal training. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m completely self-taught,â&#x20AC;? said Lund. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been playing since 1971 and just started writing music. Soon I noticed that almost all of it was headed towards a New Orleans kind of feel.â&#x20AC;? Lund said he encourages anyone who likes to have a fun to come out to the event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a great time. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s New Orleans, how could it not be?â&#x20AC;?

Arnprior line dancers perform at Carleton Place Manor Community – The line dance program at the Nick Smith Centre (NSC) in Arnprior has continued running from mid-June to midAugust this year, wrapping up Aug. 19. Instructor Hyacinth Chatterton delivers programs in fall, winter and spring for the Town of Mississippi Mills – in Almonte and in Pakenham – and also at the Nick Smith Centre for the Town of Arnprior. She mentioned that this was the first summer program she has organized, and confirmed being pleased with the participation and progress throughout this eight-week series.

Approximately 20 line dancers attended on a regular or a drop-in basis each Monday from 1:30 to 3 p.m., and everyone enjoyed the approach of being introduced to new beginner dances each class. In addition, there was always time to review the dances already well-established in their repertory. This summer’s dancers represented the following areas: Almonte, Arnprior, Braeside, Carleton Place, Carp, Galetta, Kinburn, Pakenham, Renfrew and White Lake. The group, known as The HY-LINERS, are often invited to entertain at hospitals, seniors’

residences and other establishments, and this summer was no exception. They danced on Aug. 16 at the Carleton Place Manor on Arthur Street, and their 50-minute performance included a special dance in which residents and staff at the manor enthusiastically participated. After dancing, The HY-LINERS had a welcome chance to meet and greet the residents and their caregivers. Then it was off to a barbecue on Mississippi Lake at one of the dancer’s summer residence. Chatterton mentions that the fall programs for all three recre-

ation departments with which she is involved will start the week of Oct. 7, and continue through to the week of Dec. 9. The different groups get together for performances, and are already booked for Christmas entertainment in mid-December at one of the area’s hospitals and its adjoining residence. For the fall programs, Chatterton announced that there will be a special emphasis on inviting dancers to join in groups. For example, if church groups, choirs, sports groups, bridge-players, business personnel, school staff, etc., participated with other members of their particular group, they would end up with an added area of enjoyment and possible performances given at their own sites, by their own groups. This dance-form is an activity for all ages, both genders, and all levels; in addition, the dances that are covered offer quite a variety of different forms such as western-swing, waltzes, jive, fox-trot, country, and many others. All prospective participants who are interested in adding some extra “goodfor-you” fun to their current exercise routines, can contact the Mississippi Mills recreation department at 613-2561077, or Arnprior’s Nick Smith Centre at 613-623-7301.

Almonte Thunder start season strong By KELLY KENT kkent@perfprint.ca

Metro Valley Conference and the top four from each division, for a total of eight teams, will make it to the playoffs early next year. To prepare themselves to have the best season possible, the Thunder practice every Thursday as a team and are working to strengthen each player individually and as part of the group. So far, Hawkins says the team is looking strong. They played another game the night of Sept. 15 against the Stittsville Royals and lost only after a competitive shootout. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a pretty good start to the season,â&#x20AC;? Hawkins said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully the team will pull through and remain strong.â&#x20AC;?

Left, two members of the U14 Boys Mustang team accept the award for best offensive effort in the regular season on behalf of their coach and the rest of the team, who were absent. Above, the first-ever recipient of the Youth Presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Trophy, Taylor Curran, was awarded with the honour for his commitment to the club, which includes more than 300 hours of volunteer time.

Their home opener for the season will take place at the Almonte Community Centre on Oct. 5.

Sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Hockey fans get ready: the Almonte Thunder Junior B hockey team started its regular season Sept. 14 and is set to take the division by storm. At their showcase in Arnprior this past weekend, the team played its first game against the Ottawa Junior Canadians, holding their own against one of last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strongest teams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We really competed at a good level,â&#x20AC;? said the Almonte Thunderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s general manager, Jeff Hawkins. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a good start to the season for us.â&#x20AC;? The team, which consists of players aged 16 to 21, started out strong in the gameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first period, ending it with a 2-1 lead over the Canadians. It was in the second period that the Thunder slipped, letting in three goals to trail by a score of 4-2.

They fought a good fight in the third period, scoring another goal and ending the game with a respectable score of 4-3. Eleven teams from the Metro Valley Conference, which includes those from Arnprior, Perth, Renfrew and Stittsville, competed in the showcase, for a total of five games, said Hawkins. The Almonte Thunder is much the same this year as it has been in the past. The team is still coached by Bill White, who has been with them for four years, and Hawkins said the players are still as strong as they always are. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of course there are always changes every year,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of the kids go off to school or decide they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to continue playing, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve recruited new kids that can skate, have good skills and a lot of hockey IQ.â&#x20AC;? There are 11 teams in the

Sports – A hot start to the season for the Carleton Place Canadians has them leading the Central Canada Hockey League standings through the early going. Following back-to-back wins over perennial powerhouse Pembroke Lumber Kings in a homeand-home series on the weekend, the 6-2-0-0 Canadians are tops with 12 points. That’s one point ahead of the Brockville Braves (5-1-1-0) and Ottawa Jr. Senators (5-1-0-1) and three up on four other teams. In front of more than 350 fans at the Neelin Street Community Centre last Friday, Andy Sturtz led the way with a pair of goals and goalie Cory Simic kicked out 20 of 21 shots to pace the home team to a 4-1 win. Stephen Baylis scored once and set up two others and Vinny Post collected a goal and assist to pace the offensive attack. The Canadians were full value for the win, outshooting the visitors 39-21 for the game. On Sunday, Carleton Place did one better, shutting out the Lumber Kings on their home ice 4-0. Evan Peterson, Vinny Post and Forest Donovan broke open what had been a close game with third period goals to propel the visi-

tors to their second win in three nights. Andy Sturtz had opened the scoring at the 16:54 mark of the first period, assisted by Peterson and Jim Roll. They made that lead hold up through a scoreless second period before exploding for three more goals in the third. Simic was perfect this time,

making 21 saves to post his first shutout of the season. His counterpart did not fare as well, Darren Smith surrendering four goals off 38 Canadians shots. This week, the Canadians travel to Cornwall for a tilt with the Colts Thursday night, then return home Sunday for a rematch. Game time Sept. 22 is 3 p.m.

Community – Selecting, measuring and cutting fabric, sewing small triangles of material into larger and larger squares, ironing, pressing and needlework – a lot of time and effort, but also a lot of love, go into making a quilt by hand. It’s this love and commitment that makes each quilt made by the Almonte Friends’ Group of Victoria’s Quilts so special to the cancer patients who receive them. On the second Monday of every month, since November of 2011, a volunteer group of local women have been meeting to piece together quilts to send to an organization called Victoria’s Quilts. Victoria’s Quilts was started in 1999 by Ottawa native Deborah Rogers, who had the idea to provide quilts to cancer patients when her friend Victoria started going through treatments and found she was cold in the hospital. Since then, the company has gone national and has given out more than 34,000 quilts to cancer patients of all ages. “This is a way for us to take our hobby of quilting and use it for something that is truly good,” said Jen (JC) Empey, the Almonte Friends’ Group leader. At their first meeting after their summer break on Sept. 9, the women were working on their next batch of quilts to send away. In the two years that they have been in operation, the group of 30

to 40 women has made more than 81 quilts and 11 bags to contribute to Victoria’s Quilts. “We’ve been busy,” said Empey. “We try to have every member make at least one quilt from start to finish each year.” Once a month, the group takes over the Almonte Civitan with their sewing machines, fabrics and threads and they work as a team to finish as many quilts as they can. One woman at the meeting had finished eight quilt tops over the summer holidays, which were then ready to be quilted. “That’s the best thing about this,” said Empey. “You don’t have to be a quilter to join. We have lots of jobs that anyone

can do: cutting, tying or ironing or quilting if that’s what you like to do.” The group works within the guideline set by Victoria’s Quilts about the fabric types (100 per cent cotton only) and the sizing of the three different quilts (adult, youth and child) but otherwise they have permission to be creative. Each quilt also goes through quality control to check that there are no openings for tubing to get caught in. All of these steps are performed by different members of the group. “It’s a good time,” said Empey. “We get together and laugh and be social while we’re working on these quilts for a good cause.

Legion Week

September 15th - 21st, 2013

Take time out to remember those who gave their lives in time of war. Royal Canadian Legion Branch 240 Almonte is hosting an Open House and exhibit on Sunday, September 22 from 2-5pm.

R0011609480

The exhibit will feature biographies of the WWII personnel listed on the cenotaphs in Almonte Clayton and Pakenham, including photographs and genealogical information. This is the result of the “Lest we forget” project, undertaken by students from Almonte District High School under the direction of history teacher Jennifer Yake. One of these biographies is now on the Canadian Military Engineers’ website and two are on the University of New Brunswick Teacher Education site, a testimonial to the excellence of the students’ work. Information on the WWI dead will be presented by the North Lanark Historical Society, which has amassed a database of local veterans and has a copy of all of their Attestation Papers (Enlistment forms). In addition, personal family items will be on display. This is a unique opportunity for family members and genealogists to fill in gaps in their family histories and for members of the public to put faces to the names that are read out each Remembrance Day. Legion Branch 240 also reminds you that the 2013 Poppy Campaign begins on October 25. Take time out this Sunday to learn more about those who made the supreme sacrifice so that we may enjoy what we have today.

LAWS sees success with pilot humane education program Lifestyle – Back in January 2012 Beth Searle, OCT was a stay at home mum who was then five months pregnant with her second child. A beautiful Siamese cat found its way on to her wooded property in Almonte and was sitting on her porch staring her down through the window. As Searle is deathly allergic, she called LAWS (Lanark Animal Welfare Society) to pick up the poor thing that had clearly been dumped on her property. Upon meeting with the staff from LAWS that day, Searle opened her mouth and said “is there any way I can help?” Skip forward 18 months and Searle is now the humane education coordinator for LAWS. Having taught for several years in Ottawa as an elementary school teacher, Searle and her husband decided to move to Almonte as they both wanted a rural life for their children. After that meeting with the LAWS staff and a phone call later, Searle offered to help develop a humane education program for LAWS. Over the next several months and one child delivery later, a program was written. The board of directors for LAWS met and reviewed all of the material, lesson plans and resources pooled together and written by this former teacher and gave their seal of approval. This past fall was the pilot program of the LAWS humane education program, and Searle was a proud mama to be representing LAWS. “It was wonderful stepping back in to the classroom as it is what I am trained to do, but to get develop and implement a program for our community while promoting the importance of animal welfare for LAWS was pretty much the perfect volunteer job,” says Searle. Searle volunteered for the humane education program all of last year under the supervision of LAWS’ board of directors. This past July, the board decided to hire Searle as a contractor to continue the humane education program. You may wonder what the programs entail. Searle brings her temperament-

Last year’s Lanark Animal Welfare Society (LAWS) pilot humane education program was so successful that its co-ordinator Beth Searle, above with her eight-year-old Chocolate Labrador Bailey, has been hired on as a contractor. Under the program, Searle

trained dog Bailey (an eight-year-old Chocolate Lab rescue dog) in to the classrooms all across the Upper Canada District School Board and Catholic Board, from junior kindergarten up to and including Grade 12. Every lesson plan Searle developed is “age and classroom appropriate; all lessons focus on assisting the children in developing compassion, a sense of justice and a respect for the value of living creatures.” The program also boasts of fostering a sense of responsibility on the part of children to make choices and act upon their personal beliefs via the lessons either Searle delivers in the classroom or provide for the teachers to deliver themselves (as some lessons are written to be delivered over the course of a week). It is worth mentioning that this program is offered to our community free of charge. LAWS is a not-for-profit, nokill shelter and as such do no charge any fee for the humane education visits and programs offered. Donations are always appreciated though. This month, Searle will be contacting every school in our region to see if they would like to participate in the humane education program. Teachers and principals (and family members, too!) are encouraged to visit the website for more details. If you would like your children’s school to have a presentation simply let your school know. “We were very busy in our first year; our community gave this program so much support. I hope this coming year we will be able to visit even more school aged children and get the message out on the importance of humane education in our community,” says Searle. For more information please visit www.lanarkanimals.ca/humane_ed.html where you will find more details about the lesson plans offered for teachers to use and or for Searle to present to your class, as well as photos taken over the last year of visits in the classroom.

Paul Wilson’s first car: A 1969 Plymouth Fury III “With gas prices climbing, I sold the car back to my dad and bought a ’73 Ford Pinto in 1976. My brother drove the Plymouth for a few more years while attending the University of Guelph. We sold it talked me out of it, saying the insurance would kill me if the car didn’t. I had been working three part-time jobs at a machine shop, supermarket, and school library, and managed to save $1,000. “Soon after graduation, Dad came home one day and told me a guy at work was selling a ’69 Plymouth Fury III for $900. It was a beauty. It was bright red, four-door, 318 V8, automatic, black interior, 90,000 miles and no rust. I bought it. That summer I was on cloud nine. We made trips to the beach, the drive-in, the drags, dances, you name it. The car was a land yacht by today’s standards but per-

formed well. I even ran the car at the drags at Cayuga and it consistently ran the quarter mile at 17.60 seconds and 76 mph. I won eight times that summer.” “In the fall, we started Conestoga College. I car pooled and had three girls who paid me five dollars each for gas. I could fill the tank back then for $15. One night coming home from the races, a small Ford Cortina ran a stop sign in Cambridge and T-boned us. No one was hurt and I got a new paint job out of it! Another night returning from the US, I lost all my dash lights. We fixed that with a rolled up foil from a pack of cigarettes.

Lifestyle – Paul Wilson lives in Kitchener, Ontario, and is very active in the local chapter of the Model A Ford Owners Club. His first car was a lot faster: “Certain things are monumental in everyone’s life and things happen that you will never forget. The year 1974 was one such year for me as I had passed my driver’s license on November 2, 1973, and was finishing my last year of high school at Cameron Heights. I was 18, college would be starting in the fall, and weekend trips with buddies and girlfriends were becoming more common as we spread our wings. “Like all young guys, I was eager to get wheels but ran into roadblocks with my parents over money, kind of car, insurance, etc. As a drag racing fan, I had my eye on a ’67 Camaro my neighbour was selling but my parents

IN MEMORIAM

IN MEMORIAM

COADY, Sean Douglas In loving memory of our dear son, who tragically was taken too soon, September 16, 2006. Every day our hearts are filled with sorrow, Wondering how we will make it through tomorrow. Our time with you was precious, And the memories we have are too. The love we share together keeps us close to you. Maybe we cannot touch your hand or see your smiling face, Maybe we cannot hear your voice or feel your warm embrace, But, there is something we will always have, Tucked safely in our hearts, Our love for you… your love for us… will never let us part. “Those we love stay with us always, locked in our hearts as long as our life remains.” Love, Mom and Dad

“WE REMEMBER” Just inside the main entrance of the C.R. Gamble Funeral Home is a book of remembrance. Each day we turn a page in the book. The names of those we have served are inscribed on that date along with the year in which they passed away. It is our way of honouring and remembering a life that was lived. It is also our way of

IN MEMORIAM

COADY, Sean Douglas Remembering my fun and loving brother… my best friend… who left this earth, much too soon, September 16, 2006. Seven years have passed... Not a day goes by that I don’t think of you and wish for one more laugh, one more hug. Time passes… the grief remains, but I know that you would say… Keep my memory with you, For memories never die. I will always be there with you, When you look up in the sky. When your heart is heavy And you feel you are alone, Reach deep down inside yourself For your heart is now my home. I will always be there with you I will never go away I will live on within your heart Each and every day. “In my mind I see you and in my heart I keep you…” Love, Erin

M A E R D THE . . . G N I N N I W U O ISE RYEALITY IS, YOUR’RE HELPING CHEO

TH

My sister Shannon suffered from a congenital heart disease, a condition that made it difficult for her to eat, breathe or move. She was so fragile that she spent the entire first year of her life at CHEO, so I ended up spending my days at the hospital with my parents and my sister. CHEO became my second home: it was where my family and I spent most of our time, where my sister went to preschool and where I made friends.

B M E V O N , Y A D I R F

I remember that the staff at CHEO always made time for me whether it was by saying hello, giving me a hug or taking me to the playroom, while my sister underwent various procedures. The nurses, especially, were my heroes; it was their caring words and gentle touch that carried my family through some very difficult days.

WITH SO MANY GREAT PRIZES IT’S HARD TO BELIEVE THERE’S MORE!

Unfortunately, two weeks before her fourth birthday, Shannon passed away. Her strength and resilience throughout her illness were exceptional and she always had a smile for me.

But, lottery organizers are excited to introduce an incredible addition to the lottery

At three months of age, Ava was admitted to CHEO where she was diagnosed with failure to thrive, severe acid reflux and several food allergies. Failure to thrive is a condition that can have serious repercussions on a child’s stature, emotional and behavioral development. Ava required a hypoallergenic formula via continuous nasogastric feeds (a feeding tube placed in the nose) and a few medications to help settle her stomach. After a five week stay at CHEO, she was transitioned to thickened bottles and we were finally able to bring her home. Following her discharge, Ava continued to thrive with outpatient support from CHEO, and although she was smaller than most kids her age, she seemed to be on the upswing.

But one morning I found Ava sweating, trembling and difficult to arouse. That day Ava had the first of a few ambulance rides back to CHEO where she was recently diagnosed with ketotic hypoglycemia, a rare but serious form of Little did I know then that my husband and I would return to CHEO once we became parents. low blood sugar.
