Almonte Mom to Mom Sale Oct. 5 By KELLY KENT

Community – Moms, gather your strollers, diaper bags, kids and wallets and get ready to save at the Almonte Mom to Mom Sale. The always-anticipated sale of second-hand kiddie goods is returning to Almonte for its fall edition on Saturday, Oct. 5 at the Almonte Civitan Club, bringing with it a chance for moms – and dads – to score everything from clothing and toys to strollers and car seats at garage sale prices. “It’s all about moms selling their stuff to other moms who might have more use for it,” said this year’s event co-ordinator Kate Payne. “Kids grow out of things so fast and moms are always needing more and more things.” The event runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., with strollers welcome after 10 a.m. when the morning surge has died away. “Moms and kids and families

are all welcome to come and roam around the sale,” Payne said. “But it can get quite crowded with the prams so we ask that they hold off until then.” The Mom to Mom Sale happens twice a year in Almonte and is organized by the Cooperative Nursery School of Almonte. Moms can purchase tables at the sale for $30 to sell their gently used items to other families. “We try to make sure the items for sale are of good quality,” said Payne. “So you know that you’re getting some great stuff for great prices.” Moms can keep all of the profits they make from the sale of their own items, but proceeds from table sales go toward subsidizing the cost of the nursery’s program for families in need. “With the money we make from the sale, we help support families who might not be able to afford to send their children to the school,” said Payne.

“We can make anywhere up to $6,000 in one sale and that can help a lot of families.” The Co-operative Nursery School of Almonte accepts children aged two to four for a morning program. Kids enrolled in the program enjoy playing games and doing activities with other children their age. Payne says that tables for this sale have sold out; the Civitan will be filled to the brim inside and even outside with moms selling their items. “Moms can make a good chunk of money at the sale,” she said. “Anywhere from $100 to $200, maybe even $500. It’s always a well attended and talked about event.” While this fall’s sale is sold out, Payne has already begun organizing the spring sale, tentatively scheduled for April of next year. She said moms can go to the sale’s Facebook page at for more information.

News – Carleton Place’s deputy mayor has again been reprimanded for breaching the municipality’s code of conduct after sending a string of “offensive” emails. Ed Sonnenburg was the focus of a three-page report by Caledon lawyer Robert J. Swayze, which was made public during council’s meeting on Sept. 24. Swayze is the town’s appointed integrity commissioner. The first email is to a member of the public who is attempting to work out with staff a donation of seating for the local arena. “Mr. Sonnenburg uses offensive language to the member of the public with copies to all members of the volunteer facilities management committee,” wrote Swayze. In the second email string, the deputy mayor reacts after hearing from a member of the public about a change in a development plan that was decided at a meeting he did not attend. He wrote: “But then again, council has been proven over and over again to be powerless... and for Paul (Knowles, chief administrative officer), once again a ratepayer is providing information to a councillor.” In his report, Swayze wrote Sonnenburg implied “the CAO is withholding information from council.” In the final email, the deputy mayor is again critical of Knowles. Referring to a capital project in town, Sonnenburg said: “Who decided to build what on whose authority... or is it just the CAO using his discretion again?” “He could have inquired first and found that the project had been approved by council,” wrote Swayze. “The above emails were served on the deputy mayor and his confidential response to me was apologetic and then includ-

ed serious unsupported accusations against certain members of staff and council that I will not publish,” he continued. Déjà vu This is not the first time Sonnenburg has been penalized. In November 2010 the deputy mayor’s ‘remuneration was suspended for a period of 30 days “for sending out derogatory emails concerning staff and directing staff in their job.” Last October, Sonnenburg had his pay reduced for one week for a series of “inappropriate” emails and was put on notice for the remainder of the council term. At the time, Swayze’s legal bill came in at $11,000. Following the procedure of the Oct. 9, 2012 council meeting, mayor Wendy LeBlanc dispensed with the reading of Swayze’s entire report last week. However, as requested by the majority of council, she read aloud the conclusion. “I have sent a memorandum to the treasurer requiring him to suspend four weeks of the deputy mayor’s salary commencing with the next pay period following Sept. 24, 2013,” said LeBlanc. Final words “May I?” asked Sonnenburg. “Yes, deputy mayor Sonnenburg,” responded LeBlanc. “This is a case of déjà vu,” said Sonnenburg, “and it’s the same thing that happened to Paul Dulmage.” Known for being outspoken, Dulmage is the municipality’s previous mayor – first elected in 2003 after unseating three-term incumbent Brian Costello. He was re-elected in 2006. “There is no doubt in my mind that there will be a whole bunch of rumours over the next year about me to ensure that I don’t run,” said Sonnenburg. The next municipal election is October 2014. See FINE page A/CP2

Working to maintain rehabilitation services Council has approved recommendations that support continuity and a high level of physiotherapy services and exercise classes for the 163 residents of the county’s long-term care home, Lanark Lodge. This comes following funding changes to the model for these services in long-term care homes that took effect Aug. 1. The county will maintain its current service provider using the new base rate funding model mandated by the provincial Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, which sees a reduction in ministry-funded programs by a minimum of $45,700 per year to Lanark Lodge. Director Deborah Pidgeon says the home has notified families and residents that there are changes forthcoming and that staff will be working diligently to provide the best possible service with resources available. “It is recognized there are provincial challenges with funding, but it is

Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters encourage safe, responsible hunting season Lifestyle – It’s an exciting time of year for big game hunters and waterfowlers alike. Tens of thousands of hunters will be hitting the bush, field or water this fall to take advantage of the many great wild game and migratory bird opportunities in the province, and to enjoy their hunting heritage. The Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH) and the Ontario Conservation Officers Association (OCOA) would like to wish all outdoor enthusiasts a great season and remind them to ensure they have the latest information on regulations in their wildlife management unit, to obtain and carry all necessary permits and licenses, to obey the law, but most of all remember safety first. “Hunting in Ontario offers many rewards, including healthy recreation in the outdoors and a lifelong connection with

wildlife,� said OFAH executive director Angelo Lombardo. “It’s also an opportunity to spend time with family and friends and take part in a true Canadian tradition. However, responsible hunters know that a license to hunt is not a license to trespass. The vast majority of hunters in Ontario ask permission to hunt on privately-owned land, build good relationships with landowners, and show their respect and appreciation for having the privilege to hunt on private property.� “As a hunter myself, I understand the need to show the utmost respect to both landowners and other hunters,� said OCOA president Joe McCambridge. “I encourage all hunters to put consideration for others before the need to bag a trophy deer or get a limit of geese – this will ensure a safe and enjoyable hunt for all.�

Anyone who observes illegal or unsafe hunting activity is asked to help conservation officers protect our natural resources and ensure public safety by calling the MNR’s violation reporting line at 1-877-TIPS-MNR (8477677), or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). For more information about natural resources regulations and enforcement, please visit the OCOA website at http://www. or contact your local conservation officer. With more than 100,000 members, supporters and subscribers, and 710 member clubs, the OFAH is the largest non-profit conservation-based organization in Ontario.

THE EMC - 2 - Thursday, October 3, 2013


EOWC update on financial sustainability Council accepted a report presented by chief administrative officer/treasurer Kurt Greaves from the Eastern Ontario Wardens’ Caucus (EOWC) that provides an update on financial sustainability in eastern Ontario. The report builds on information released in 2012 that identified factors contributing to the region’s overall financial sustainability, including a capital infrastructure deficit of $3.74 billion of which $3 billion is transportation related. Addressing this over 10 years means spending $374 million each year in rural eastern Ontario. Costs for municipalities are outpacing the consumer price index and population growth, with the largest drivers of increased costs being transportation, protection services, health/emergency services and environment. In this region, 90 percent of the tax base is residential, and revenue generation is constrained by the taxpayers’ ability to pay. Rural eastern Ontario, the report says, tends to have lower incomes and higher percentages of people on fixed incomes than the provincial average. While municipalities in this region have increased spending on roads and bridges by 93 per cent from 2000 to 2011, it represents less than half of what is needed to be spent. The EOWC is developing a regional economic development strategy and exploring ways to reduce costs through regional approaches and sharing. It notes provincial-municipal partnerships are needed for service

delivery and offers numerous recommendations to the province for short and long-term municipal affordability strategies.


unfortunate to see reductions in services such as physiotherapy and rehabilitation that promote a quality living experience for elders in our long-term care homes,� she said. Council also passed a motion to note this issue as a possible delegation request with the ministry at the Good Roads Conference in February, and to authorize the warden to draft a letter to the minister outlining the county’s position on the funding changes. The letter will be circulated to the Association of Municipalities of Ontario.

News – The following are highlights from the regular Lanark County Council meeting held Wednesday, Sept. 25. The county is undertaking a 30day public review of a posted speed analysis report to seek input regarding proposed changes to speed limits on some county roads. The advertised review began Sept. 5 and runs until Oct. 4. Earlier this year, the public works director collected comments from local municipalities regarding proposed changes to posted speeds on some county roads based on an analysis of the county roads network and using Transportation Association of Canada guidelines. Local municipalities reviewed the proposed changes in August, which include a recommendation to reduce the posted speed limit to 50 kilometres per hour in all community settlement areas. The report and comment form can be found on the county’s website at, and hard copies are available at the public works building, 99 Christie Lake Road.

Area boy diagnosed with rare immune deficiency disorder Benefit concert planned for Frankville family Oct. 11 in Toledo She said many people sign organ donation cards but being a bone marrow donor has a short recovery period. “You’re down for about a week and then back to normal,� she explained. “It is important and people on the other side really do appreciate it. It’s your only shot.�


Community – As young Kael Morrison plays outside on his family’s farm in Frankville recently, it’s hard to imagine the happy little boy has been diagnosed with a rare, and potentially fatal, immune deficiency disease. The six-year-old, who attends Meadowview Public School in Addison, is one of five known people in the world to be diagnosed with Stat 1 mutation. Kael is one of two currently living, the other a three-year-old boy living in Tokyo. The disease is terminal and there’s the possibility he won’t live past the age of 12. However, his best chance at extending his life is a bone marrow transplant. In a stroke of luck, his four-year-old brother Eamon is a bone marrow match and will be his donor when he heads to Sick Kids Hospital Nov. 1 for the transplant. Kael’s parents, Emily and Andrew Morrison, are hoping their personal story will encourage more people to become bone marrow donors and help save lives. According to Canadian Blood Services, which also operates OneMatch, a stem cell and marrow network that services the country, 70 per cent of people who need a stem cell transplant don’t find one within their family. Emily said that’s why it’s so important for people to register with the network. “Hopefully our story will move people, even if it’s just one, to become a donor and change someone’s life. Being a donor proves that anyone can be a life saver and make a difference,� Emily noted.

Six-year-old Kael Morrison of Frankville, right, clowns around with four-year-old brother Eamon, on the family farm recently. Kael was diagnosed with Stat 1 mutation, a rare immune deficiency disorder and will be heading to Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto for a bone marrow transplant next month. His broth-

er Eamon, a bone marrow match, will be his donor. A benefit concert for Kael is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 11 at the Royal Canadian Legion branch in Toledo, featuring popular band, the Fabulous BelAirs and donations for the family can be made at any area CIBC location.

Long road It’s taken a number of years of tests and consultations with doctors until Kael was finally diagnosed with the disorder on his fifth birthday. Emily said it all started when he was 18 months of age and began getting yeast infections on his face and mouth. He was prescribed rounds of antibiotics, but the condition would reappear after two weeks. While pregnant with Eamon, Emily was referred to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario’s (CHEO) infectious diseases department where the doctors determined Kael had herpes. The following week, they weren’t so sure in their diagnosis. “Two weeks after, another doctor called who had seen Kael’s blood work and noticed something off about his immune system,� she explained. “We were given a regime for bathing and two different kinds of oral medicine and were to call the second we saw anything.� That medicine seemed to do the trick. The period between Kael’s flare ups stretched from two weeks, to three and four, until he was infection free for three months. Emily said Kael often complained of headaches, sore See KAEL page 4

legs and would tire easier than the other kids, but she and Andrew initially thought they were just symptoms of growing pains. Doctors were still concerned with his failing immune system and Kael was then referred to the immunology department at Sick Kids Hospital. Emily found out he had lost his immunity to measles and had contracted tetanus more times than he should have. “Just before he turned three, we started going to Sick Kids (Hospital) every six months and they would take blood work. They’d take 16 vials every time and would run all these tests for genetic disorders,” Emily said. Then, on Kael’s fifth birthday, doctors asked Emily to come to Toronto for a special visit. Emily and her sister Lacey took Kael for the appointment as Andrew was planting crops at home. It was then that doctors officially diagnosed Kael with an immune deficiency disorder. Emily noted there are five classes of disorders, including HIV and severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID). “Doctors don’t know where on the spectrum he is and they don’t know when he got sick or how sick he was going to get. They said we just have to wait,” she said. With Andrew on speakerphone, the doctor told them Kael’s condition was terminal “and they don’t see him living past the age of 12,” Emily stated. “This is a kid who might often have a runny nose, but he’s not a sickly kid,” she continued. “I said ‘You’re telling me that the healthy little boy running around, smiling, that I have six years

with him?’” In shock and determined to do anything it takes, Emily asked the doctor if pulling Kael out of hockey or changing the family’s lifestyle would have any effect. “I wanted to know what I could do, but I can’t pull him out of hockey or clean my house more because there will still be something he’ll catch,” she explained. “It’s a parent’s worst nightmare. You can’t do anything but watch it happen.” “…You can’t control the healthy part of it, but you can control how happy they are,” Emily added. She said one of the most difficult things was how to break the news to immediate family. After telling family members, it took most a few days to let everything sink in. As Stat 1 mutation is a genetic disorder, both Emily and Andrew were tested and found out they aren’t carriers. Eamon, nor the couple’s other two children, 15-month-old Lochlan and eight-year-old Charlotte, have it either. Benefit concert Doctors said that Kael’s best chance is a bone marrow transplant done when he is healthy, said Emily. They received news of Eamon’s match in July, which she referred to as a blessing. “If you don’t have a match in the family, it’s next to impossible to find one,” she explained. The operation requires extensive preparation, including 10 days of chemotherapy drugs and isolation for Kael, prior to surgery. Emily and Andrew will be staying with him for the month before the transplant is performed. She said that Kael doesn’t fully un-

derstand the “severity of the surgery.” “He knows that he has to go to the hospital and one day he’s happy to go away because he was given a tablet to communicate with family, but in his head, he thinks he’ll be away for a few days,” she remarked. “Slowly, he’s clueing in that he is going to be gone until spring.” “Then, after the surgery, we wait four weeks until the transplant takes over his system, but that whole time he has to be in isolation, in a sterile environment,” Emily said. Eamon’s part will be done through day surgery and marrow will be taken from his hip bone. He will face some slight discomfort for a week after the surgery. “He’s only four though, so we’re not sure, emotionally, how he will handle it, but he should be healed after a week,” Emily stated. Kael will have to stay in Toronto for up to six months following the transplant and Emily and Andrew will be taking turns staying with him. Family members will help care for their other children back home. They will all communicate via email, Skype and video messaging. “We’re going to stay in touch as much as possible,” Emily said. “…We want them (children) to stay in their own beds and not be shipped around. We’ve trying to keep their lives as normal as possible.” Due to the living expenses and transportation costs, which are expected to be substantial, close family and friends have banded together to organize a benefit concert featuring popular ‘50s and ‘60s rock and roll band, the Fabulous BelAirs, at the Royal Canadian Legion

Branch 475 in Toledo on Friday, Oct. 11. The event runs from 8 p.m. to midnight and will also feature raffle prizes. Tickets are not available in advance, but a $10 minimum donation is being asked for in lieu of admission per person at the door. All proceeds from the concert will go directly to Kael’s hospitalization costs. The legion is donating the hall and the Fabulous BelAirs are also waiving their performance fee. A.R.T. Studio will provide sound and lighting. Emily indicated that the funds will go towards parking and hotel fees, as well as the costly medications Kael will have to be on following his transplant.

They are hoping to cut down on costs by staying at Ronald McDonald House, and are currently on a waiting list. For more information on the benefit concert or to help in any way, contact Lacey Knapp at 613-803-0137. Those who aren’t able to attend the concert but still wish to make a donation can do so at any CIBC branch throughout the area.

Upper Canada Sports League expands News – The Upper Canada District School Board has expanded its popular elementary sports league to add a Grades 4 to 6 division as well as two new sports for the 2013-2014 school year. The Upper Canada Sports League will add soccer and cross country running to its yearly lineup – on top of track and field, basketball, and volleyball – which were introduced last year, said superintendent David Coombs. All events will be played in both the Grades 7 to 8 division and the new Grades 4 to 6 division. The league, established in the 20122013 school year, has been expanded to bring more athletic opportunities to elementary students within the board, said Coombs. “Up until now, the athletic opportunities offered to our elementary students have been very un-

even across the board,” said Coombs. “In some areas, they have been very well-organized and in others they have not. We want to even the opportunities for all of our students, no matter where they go to school. The two divisions will each be split into six competitive regions. The champions from each region will gather to compete for the Upper Canada Cup championship in each sport. The competitions will be held at different times during the year including: crosscountry running, September and October; soccer, October and November; basketball, January and February; volleyball, March and April; and track and field, May and June. The first Upper Canada Cup championship will be the cross-country event. It is set for Oct. 30 at Memorial Park in Brockville. R0012311575_0926

See fall colours from Lanark County’s highest peak at nature walk Oct. 5


Community – The scenery from the top of Blueberry Mountain is spectacular any time of year, but during the changing of the leaves the panoramic view is absolutely breathtaking. To take advantage of this annual display, the Mississippi Madawaska Land Trust Conservancy (MMLTC) will hold its fall colours Nature Walk at Blueberry Mountain on Saturday, Oct. 5. The event will include guided hikes for all ages and abilities and the renowned naturalist Grey Owl has promised to make a special appearance. It only takes about 45 minutes for the Blueberry Express walk directly, but leisurely, up the mountain and it’s fairly easy walking, with one short steep climb at the very top. The longer Old Cedar Ramble passes through an ancient cedar grove, with one towering cedar estimated more than 300 years old. The Budding Naturalist Circuit will provide opportunities for kids to explore the wonders of nature along the way.

for the long term. In 2009, the Clifford family placed a conservation easement on this 1,250 property, now known as cliffLAND, so that it would be forever a protected wilderness property accessible to the public. Already this year, Blueberry Mountain has had more than 500 visitors, a growing number of them international. There have even been several marriage proposals at the top! Climbers include an 80Plus Club and two Kids’ Clubs, one for under 12-years-old and another for under five. The tremendous popularity of this beautiful spot resulted in it being voted by county residents as one of the Seven Wonders of Lanark County. Registration for the Nature Walk begins at 9:30 a.m. on Oct. 5 so that the hike can start at 10 a.m. Since this is a fundraising event, a $10 donation is requested. Children under 12 are free.

Local councillor praises columnist for thoughts on roundabouts DEAR EDITOR: Editor’s note: The following letter is in response to a column by Jeff Maguire, which appeared in the Sept. 12 edition of the EMC, entitled ‘Kept simple, roundabouts can be very useful.’ Kudos goes out to Jeff Maguire for recognizing the value of roundabouts. Extensive engineering studies offer proof of what Jeff mentions. They are indeed safer by a wide margin and more efficient at moving traffic.

In addition, they offer ‘green’ benefits because they eliminate idling at intersections. In Mississippi Mills, the residents have taken to the Almonte roundabout like ducks to water despite all the initial guffawing and skepticism. Let’s have more of them! After all, who can be against, increased safety, efficiency and environmental improvements? John Edwards Mississippi Mills councillor

Editorial – Enjoy a ‘Coffee Break’ with the Alzheimer Society of Lanark County. The 18th annual nationwide Coffee Break campaign for the Alzheimer Society kicked off Sept. 19 and runs throughout this month. Every dollar raised is vital for the agency so they can continue to provide the many services and supports to the community. According to information provided by the Alzheimer Society, one in 11 Canadians over the age of 65 currently has Alzheimer’s or a related dementia and this year alone, more than 103,000 Canadians will develop dementia. The local Alzheimer Society is more than just an organization which hands out brochures and information – it provides support groups, support and education programming, funds research to find a cure and improve the care of people with dementia, promotes education and connects people with dementia as well as their family and caregivers with helpful programs and services. Big or small, the society is looking for folks to take part, to either host a coffee party, to just put a pot of coffee out at lunch time or breakfast time and collect donations, have a dress-up or dress-down day at work, barbecue, pot luck, or just encourage people to donate online. All that needs to be done to take part is to call the local society and to register. For further information about any of the events, the campaign or to register to hold a Coffee Break please call the local Alzheimer Society office at 613-264-0307 (toll-free: 1-800-511-1911) or visit

Central was a vital link between isolation and the neighbours Lifestyle – It was a complete mystery to me. I never thought much about it before Uncle Lou, with his usual feeling of compassion for Mother, installed our first telephone out on the farm in Northcote. But once that beautiful oak contraption was hung on our wall in the kitchen, I was in complete awe of how someone not even in our house, knew when we wanted to talk to someone miles away, or they wanted to talk to us. That someone was right inside Briscoe’s General Store! She sat on a padded chair in front of a big board with holes in it, and long cords trapped in a desk-like affair in front of her. Usually, a light would come on, but sometimes a little bell would ring, and she would know exactly what to do with those cords and the holes in the board with the red lights flashing! Sometimes, Mr. Briscoe manned what was called the switchboard himself, but I have little memory of his voice coming into our oak phone on the kitchen wall. It was someone we simply called “Central”. The very first day we got the phone,

will stay in my mind forever. Mother cried. Not from sadness, but from the sheer wonder of finally being able to talk to someone at will beyond the four walls of our old log house. That first night, we sat around the kitchen waiting for the phone to ring. There was no looking through Eaton’s catalogue that night, or whittling or playing cards at the pine table. Even Mother’s diaries never left the backto-the-wall cupboard. We sat in a circle as if we were in a theatre. Only Father wasn’t that impressed. Finally, it came around to bedtime, and it looked very much like the phone was not going to ring. It was Mother who decided, if no one was going to ‘call in’, then she would ‘call out’. She went to the beautiful new phone, which I thought was every bit as nice as the new oak ice box grandfather bought for us, and took the receiver off the hook, and pressed a little black button on the side of the box. “Could I please talk to Bertha Thom,” she said into the black mouthpiece. And there it was! There was Mother talking to Aunt Bertha! It was just as if she was Vice President & Regional Publisher Mike Mount 613-283-3182, ext. 104

in another room, and not across the 20acre field on the next farm. When the phone was put in that day, we were told our ring was ‘two longs and a short’. It didn’t take us long to know the rings of everyone else in Northcote. But it really didn’t matter if we knew the right rings or not, because “Central” as we called the switchboard at Briscoes General Store, was well acquainted with the rings of everyone for miles around. Having a phone was not without its problems. When it rang, it could be for any number of homes in Northcote! As many as four or even five other families shared the line!

to listen in, everyone who took off their receiver where privileged to your conversation. And it wasn’t unusual to have your complete conversation repeated the next day at the General Store! It also wasn’t unusual to pick up the receiver and ask Central if she knew where Mrs. Hines was...her advice was needed. And Central always knew where everyone was. Sometimes when Mother rang a neighbour, Central would come on and say, “Oh, she’s gone into Renfrew to Walkers...she needed some lace trim for a blouse she’s making. She should be back in a couple you want me to ring you when she gets home?” Central was the lifeblood of the entire neighbourhood. If there was a fire, or any other emergency, somehow Central was able to ring all the farms at the same time, at least that seemed to be the case. Because everyone responded in jig time to give a helping hand where needed. Of course you didn’t need Central if you knew the ring of the person you were calling.

and twirled the handle on the other side, giving the number of rings to reach whomever you wanted to talk to. And it wasn’t unusual for Central to interrupt your call to tell you some important bit of news, or to say someone else was trying to get the phone, and would you please hurry it up and free up the line! It was different when Mr. Briscoe was answering a call. With him it was all time for idle chatter with Mr. Briscoe! Mother always felt safer once we had the phone put in on the farm. Some of the isolation she felt when she first moved to Northcote was gone. It was my sister Audrey who noticed it. “It’s not exactly like New York,” Audrey said. “But for Mother it beats not being able to talk to another soul without getting out the horse and buggy or the old Model T.” Yes indeed. The new phone made a world of difference to our lives on the farm. And “Central”, I thought back then, was just about the most important person in Northcote. She was that vital link between isolation and connection with a neighbour. • 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.

was thrown under the bus, demoted to the back benches, by Tim Hudak. Not for under performing, but simply because he didn’t bow down to Tim Hudak! Once more, urban politicians are slapping rural Ontarians in the face! We’ve lost one of the best voices for rural interests we’ve ever had! Perhaps it’s time we should be thinking outside the box, looking in a new direction. Form a Conservative Landowners Party in Ontario. Don’t go into it with the aim of forming a government, go into it with the aim of splitting the Conservative and small one Liberal vote, electing 10 to 12 members

from rural ridings, to act as our spokesmen, to have enough members to carry the balance of power on contentious legislation, to ensure rural concerns are listened to in Queens Park, not just ignored by controlling interests like Tim Hudak et al. Vote for good legislation, vote down legislation that’s bad for rural individuals/communities – a party where an MPP could freely vote his/her constituents’ views without fear of reprisal from urban party members. I’m quite confident if a new party constructed along these lines it would bring out many people who haven’t been voting...if they can see where their vote actually does count,

they’d be more interested in voting. We already have a vehicle in place to start up this new party, the Ontario Landowners Association, which was originally lead by Randy Hillier. Using the landowners as a base, forming a new party, and getting onto the ballot in the next Ontario election, would certainly give the urban politicians pause for reflection, that maybe, just maybe, many Ontarians are fed up with their antics? Think about it, and let’s get started on it! Don Adams Balderson

DEAR EDITOR: Many Canadians don’t exercise their right to vote. Why not? Could it possibly be they don’t feel governments listen to them? That’s the problem many, many rural Ontarians have faced for years...they vote in an MPP, yet the individual always supports the party line. It’s rare that an MPP will actually vote his/her constituents views if they go against the party line. We in Lanark-Frontenac are lucky, we actually have a representative that listens to and acts on his constituents concerns, and is not afraid to go against the party line. Yet, when he did so, Randy Hillier

United Way flag flies at Lanark County offices Community – On the morning of Sept. 25, flag raising ceremonies were held at the County of Lanark Offices to celebrate the start of the 2013 annual Fall Fundraising Campaign of the United Way Lanark County. The flag was first raised at Lanark Lodge, and then at the main office of the County in Perth. Staff members of the County of Lanark and Lanark Lodge are strong supporters of the United Way Lanark County through pay roll deductions, and contributed nearly $9000 dollars to last year’s campaign. Above right, staff from Lanark Lodge join United Way executive director Fraser Scantlebury (left), warden Bill Dobson (third from left, behind), county CAO Kurt Greaves (third from right) and Deborah Pidgeon, director of Lanark Lodge (second from right) at the flag raising ceremony outside Lanark Lodge. Above, Scantlebury, Greaves and Dobson are joined by Annette Scott, long time employee campaign chair for Lanark County who spearheads the employee donation effort, for the flag raising ceremonies outside the county offices. The United Way flag will fly with the county flag for the nine-week duration of the campaign, which runs from Sept. 23 until Nov. 30.

Dreams come alive as children take Walt Disney World day trip By BRIER DODGE

News – The classic Cinderella’s castle at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom made the little girls gasp and mouths drop open. “This way to the princesses,” said the guide, an elderly man who told the girls to call him Grandpa Joe. The six little girls, members of a group of children selected to travel from Ottawa to Orlando, Fla. with the Dreams Take Flight program, wasted no time making their way across the amusement park, stopping only to point at the rides and Disney characters. “You look enchanting,” one of the little girls said to Princess Aurora. “It’s so romantic,” said another. The girls were just some of the 110 local children who travelled with Dreams Take Flight, a Canadian program that takes deserving children from a variety of backgrounds on a trip to Disney World. Several children on the Sept. 24 flight had a sibling with au-

tism or their own medical issues. Others live in foster care, or their family’s income prohibits trips like this. But Dreams Take Flight allowed the children to fly, eat, spend a day a day at Disney World and pick out a special souvenir to take home thanks to donations. The program was started by Air Canada staffers, who volunteer their time – including the pilot who flew the day trip’s plane – to take children in small groups around the park. Most of the kids had never been on an airplane or outside Canada. Many of the children agreed that it was one of the best days of their lives. Hunter Donnelly-McPhail’s mom saved news of the surprise trip for Aug. 18, his birthday. “I couldn’t stand up any longer, I had to sit down,” he said about when he first heard he was headed to Disney World. The flight – his first ever – was almost too much excitement to handle for Hunter, who wants to be a flight attendant. The volunteer flight crew, dressed in

Disney costumes, made him an honourary flight attendant for the day. He followed the attendants up and down the aisles as he handed out chips and candy. None of the children had ever been to Disney World, but almost all of them were eager to ride the roller coasters. Splash Mountain was easily the children’s favourite ride. Towards the end of the day, as a train full of Dreams Take Flight kids and volunteers cruised into the end of the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, it was clear that the kids were having a special day, as cheers of “dreams take flight” echoed through the boarding area. Taequan Moise was all smiles the entire day, from the time he arrived at Disney World waving at the volunteers, to the plane ride home when he was one of the only children awake on the plane ride home. Taequan said he could probably stay home from school to rest after the 20-hour day trip, but he wanted to tell his friends about his day. “I would tell them about the

rides, but about the food mostly. Fries, burgers, hot dogs,” he said. The kids had an early start to their day, arriving at the airport at 4 a.m. at a private hangar. They travelled in style, receiving a police escort straight to the theme park once arriving in Orlando. They received VIP treatment: fast passes that ushered them to

the front of lines on all the Disney rides throughout the day and a brand new outfit of donated shoes from Crocs and clothes from Mark’s Work Wearhouse. While there were a few skinned knees and tears from first-time flyers, the number of smiles and looks of disbelief far outnumbered any frowns. Many only needed one word – “amazing”, “best” or “great” – to

describe their day, a dream come true, as they slowly came down from the sugar high and dozed to sleep on the plane ride home. “It was really, really, really fun,” said Hunter. “From a scale from one to 10, it would be a thousand million. A thousand million and one.” For video coverage of Dreams Take Flight, visit

News – In today’s economic climate, municipal governments are facing increased demands on maintaining infrastructure while senior level government financing is being reduced. In order to ensure sustainability, municipalities must take a hard stance on cost control. Lanark County, like all municipalities, is under constant pressure to ensure infrastructure is maintained. County council and staff have worked hard to ensure infrastructure is a priority and a balanced approach is taken to tax increases. Despite the Social Services upload and annual budget surpluses over the last five years the infrastructure gap in Lanark County has grown significantly. In order to ensure the continued investment in County infrastructure the administration must be run as efficiently as possible. As the result of an administrative review, Lanark County is restructuring corporate administration to optimize operational efficiencies and financial resources. This restructuring process will impact clerk’s services, finance, human resources and information technology operations and will result in a net sav-

ings on the county budget of approximately $425,000 per year. The county administration is being refocused to the support role of its core functions: social services, public works and long term care. There are no new positions being created but existing positions are being re-aligned and/or expanded to share the responsibilities of the former director positions. The chief administrative officer/treasurer will assume the role of clerk, and the deputy treasurer role will now be responsible for internal services (finance, employee services and information technology). The deputy clerk role will be responsible for external services (planning, tourism, clerk’s services and emergency services). Warden Bill Dobson (Montague reeve) commented, “This is the hardest decision this council has had to make, but it had to be done. Council is committed to these steps to address today’s fiscal reality. We need to not only maintain but enhance our infrastructure to facilitate economic growth and we must remain respectful of every taxpayer.” Submitted by the County of Lanark.

Connected to your community

Volunteering is a calling for seven in 10 Canadians raising activities which are an ongoing, year-in and year-out program for so many groups and institutions. Pretty difficult to operate without funds! Various involvements I have worked on numerous committees although I won’t go into detail. But among my involvements were sitting on a local committee aimed at reducing substance abuse in the district. I also served on the Journalism Advisory Committee at my alma mater, Algonquin College in Ottawa for more than a decade and chaired the group for several years. I was asked to join the Carleton Place Business Improvement Association and spent 11 years with the organization including four as chairman. I’ve been a member of Lanark County Crime Stoppers since its inception in 1992 and currently chair the board of directors. My volunteering ramped up when I joined the Carleton Place Sister City Committee in 2006, along with my wife Kathleen. The committee oversees twinning arrangements involving Carleton Place and its sister communities of Comrie, Scotland and Franklin, Tennessee USA. Since 2010 I have chaired the 15-member organization. I am semi-retired so I have time to devote to community causes that younger, working people don’t. I am no different than so many volunteers in my community and in places across the country. So, what is the motivation some people might ask? I think most volunteers do what they do because of a desire to assist their fellow citizens and probably because of the social aspect involved in volunteering. In my case I have been fortunate enough to make many lifelong friendships as a result of volunteering. As with everything, you have to like what you are doing in order to be a volunteer! Nationally the number of community volunteers is staggering. A survey released in early June shows that an astounding seven in 10 of us is a volunteer. On the other hand a 2012 Statistics Canada report showed that people’s willingness to volunteer isn’t necessarily matched by their commitment to it. The Stats Can survey determined that just 10 per cent of the country’s volunteer force accounted for more than half of the hours donated. The report is based on data collected in 2010 but that is considered “current” by standards. I’m not surprised by the results. In my experience most volunteer committees and organizations have a core group

of individuals who handle the majority of the hard work. That scenario is also played out in the workforce, so why would volunteer organizations be different? In the story I read on this subject back in June, a spokesman for the United Way in Toronto lent a note of optimism to the discussion. She said the future for volunteering looks bright, thanks to baby boomers (people like me) who are now retiring. She also noted that many younger people are showing a high commitment to volunteering which should provide a huge boost to so many organizations. As I have already mentioned, most volunteers questioned cite a desire to “give back to the community” as their main motivating factor. Other potential benefits outlined include a sense of duty, the opportunity to meet new people along with gaining experience which will help them professionally. Interestingly many volunteers also pointed to “stress reduction” as one of the reasons they assist community organizations despite no remuneration. My own advice is don’t become a volunteer in hopes of lowering your stress. Because the truth is volunteerism also carries its own level of stress, something I can attest to. Most are asked Data also indicates that fewer than 30 per cent of people volunteer of their own volition. Most Canadian volunteers were prompted by a request to assist a particular cause or organization. Of course it is always best for volunteers to assist in areas which can benefit most from their skill set and their interests. It’s true that I have blown my own horn in this week’s column. But if you are looking for recognition, volunteering is probably the least likely way for you to achieve that objective. The truth is most volunteer activities go unheralded! I’m an exception to the rule. In 2004 I was fortunate enough to be named Citizen of the Year in Carleton Place. The award goes annually to a community volunteer and you have to be nominated. A selection panel then chooses the successful nominee(s) who is honoured during the town’s annual Appreciation Night held in December. In Carleton Place there

have only been 40 recipients of this particular volunteer award since it was first instituted in 1974. That includes

two couples. Most volunteers are never formally recognized for their efforts, no matter how considerable and lengthy their commitment. Obviously I was incredibly surprised and very honoured. But I also realize that in 2004 I was actually representing all of the outstanding and unsung volunteers in Carleton Place. This week I would like to salute all the volunteers across

our district, our province and our country who contribute so much to the lifeblood of their communities. Without them we would be so much poorer. In conclusion I ask anyone who is considering volunteering to please do so. Your community needs you!

Lifestyle – How many special events are running in your community this coming weekend? It is early October, one of the busiest times of the year in Canada with activities and events of all kinds on the go. Community calendars feature a lengthy list of indoor and outdoor happenings as numerous organizations wind up their fundraising for the year. Following the holiday weekend, fall harvest activities move to the top of the list and Halloween is just around the corner. After that the preChristmas bazaars move into full swing. Virtually all of the events and activities which take place in Canadian communities throughout the year involve volunteers. Without volunteers very few of the countless, worthwhile happenings which take place in your community and mine would get off the ground. Local volunteers are the fuel for the engine! Even more important are the volunteers who are dedicated to protecting our property and our lives. I am thinking about volunteer firefighters, rescue squads and search teams who regularly put their lives on the line to assist others. Volunteer firefighters protect nearly 90 per cent of Canadian communities, most of which are small, rural centres. They not only fight fires but are also well qualified in first aid and are often the first responders to assist heart attack victims and other medical emergency cases. Estimates are that there are between 85,000 and 100,000 volunteer firefighters across the nation. The truth is that without volunteers, many communities could not afford to provide fire protection which I’m sure those living in urban centres would find unimaginable. In the whole scheme of things there are emergency service volunteers and then there are the rest. But it is clear that without volunteers in general, most communities could not provide many other important services. Volunteers assist in virtually every sector of every township, village, town and city in Canada. I’m proud to say that I have been a volunteer for nearly 40 years, starting when our children were young and involved in amateur sports. I can vividly recall coaching my son, his friends and other lads from the Carleton Place community in Tee-Ball. The “young lads” I refer to are now in their late 30s. As a career journalist I have been tapped by a number of organizations, including the local hospital, to assist with public relations. Those roles were often tied to the fund-

When I am not teaching kids about fire safety, you can usually find me in the kitchen. Letting kids help in the kitchen is a great way to teach them about cooking safety and the importance of eating healthy. Here’s one of my favorite recipes. Before you begin, make sure to read my Kids in the Kitchen tips. These tips can help you figure out what you’re old enough to do on your own – and when it’s time to ask a grown-up for help.


Sparky’s Recipes


N K I G with

Ingredients: - 1 Granny Smith apple - Approx. 3” length of celery stalk


- 2 thin strips of carrot - Peanut butter



- 2 raisins

Directions: 1. Cut a thin vertical slice from the side of your apple (this will be the snail’s body). 2. Cut a celery stick that is about 1” longer than the width of the apple slice. 3. Fill the inside of the celery stick with peanut butter, and put aside.. 4. Now put some peanut butter in the plastic bag and snip just the corner off. 5. Lay your apple slice down on a flat surface. Gently squeezing your plastic bag of peanut butter, add a swirl. 6. Add the “raisin” eyes to one end of the celery (on the peanut butter). Add the thin strips of carrots for antennae. 7. Now carefully attach the apple slice onto the celery stalk.

The pros and cons of leasing versus financing a vehicle Lifestyle – “Dear Brian, My sister recently took out a lease on a 2014 Kia Soul, saying the offer was just too good to pass up. Kia threw in four mounted winter tires and a driver compartment slush catcher thingy, whose name I don’t know. I’d appreciate your take on leasing versus buying from the financial and maintenance angles. As a separate but related issue, what is your rule of thumb regarding when one should replace one’s vehicle based on the financial issues only (some people trade on alternate years ‘just because’). As the owner of a 2005 AWD Pontiac Vibe which has already cost me $2,000 for both rear wheel bearings and rear differential rebuild, I don’t know how long I should hold on to this one; I drive about 10,000 km per year on highways mainly.� In appreciation and sincerely, Undecided Great question(s)! Leasing is making a strong comeback from its near-demise in the midst of the last recession. Then many carmakers got extremely toasty (read: burned) from the losses they incurred when the endof-lease values they placed on their vehicles turned out to be considerably more than the units were worth in that very depressed market of the time. Now leasing has almost returned to its pre-recession popularity. Its acceptance is due mainly to the fact that it lets consumers enjoy lower monthly payments on extremely well-equipped vehicles, but there are bumps in the leasing road ahead for the uninitiated, so here’s a little food for thought. Leasing companies (including those run by auto manufacturers) have tightened up on their lease terms. Vehicles nowadays must be returned at the end of the lease in almost readyto-sell condition, with very little wear and tear or else the customer faces

major bills. This is severe enough that most car dealerships are offering ‘wear and tear’ insurance to their leasing clients to avoid them getting stung at the contract’s termination. If you have to buy insurance to protect yourself from a lease contract, what does that say about the terms? Carmakers will respond that the fault lies with the drivers of the past who did little or no maintenance to their leased vehicles and it’s the automaker that needs protection. Another concern with leasing is the mileage restriction clause. At the onset of every lease, the anticipated distance travelled must be spelled out in the lease with penalties assigned for overages. Often a consumer’s commuting situation may change in the middle of a leasing term and always for the worse. Then at the end of their contract their vehicle has travelled far too many kilometres and they face a major bill to reconcile things. On the plus side, leasing can be a very beneficial alternative to purchase financing. Most consumers find that a purchase plan that pays off the vehicle loan before its useful life ends carries unmanageable monthly payments. Therefore they would be unlikely to reap a trade-in benefit when purchasing the next vehicle. Leasing avoids this by only charging for the depreciation of the vehicle during its time in service. And smart lessees can inflate their monthly payments to create a guaranteed end value that would be lower than actual retail pricing. This lets them buy out and own their auto for less than its current value or use that positive ledger point as a down payment on their next vehicle whether leased or purchased. Many drivers travel predictable and stable distances annually, and properly maintain their rides so these factors aren’t a risk when they choose to

lease. And of course leases, usually having shorter terms than purchase financing (four years versus six years or more) allow customers to take advantage of newer models with improved equipment and up-to-date styling. The thrill of driving a new vehicle is hard to put a price tag on.

Whether leasing is right for our undecided can only be determined by his or her own factors in daily driving life. With regards to the current 2005 Pontiac Vibe, while we may keep vehicles longer on average, the 10-year/250,000 km guide still applies. This is the average lifespan that most mainstream automakers build to. Certainly some last longer and many reach earlier graves but those limits are still there.

Once a breast cancer diagnosis has been confirmed, the next step is to determine the stage and grade of the disease. The TNM (tumour, nodes, and metastases) classification system is the most commonly used for breast cancer. The TNM system determines the size of the tumour and if the cancer has spread, or metastasized, to other parts of the body. Generally speaking, there are five recognized stages: • 0: the cancer is at a very early stage. Atypical cells have not spread beyond the ducts or lobules into surrounding breast tissue • 1: the tumour measures 2 cm or less. The cancer has not spread beyond the breast. • 2: the size of the tumour is between 2 and 5 cm, and/or the cancer has

spread to nearby lymph nodes. • 3: the cancer has spread to the lymph nodes and may also be found in the muscles or the skin. • 4: cancer has spread to other organs or tissues. Once the developmental stage has been established, the healthcare team then determines the grade, or the rapidity of growth and aggressiveness of the cancer, with a microscopic examination of the biopsy tissues. • Grade 1: low • Grade 2: medium • Grade 3: high Knowing the stage and grade of breast cancer is an important step in the fight against this disease; it is what allows the woman and her healthcare team to choose the most appropriate treatment.

What is breast cancer? Breast cancer starts in the cells of the breast. The breast tissue covers an area larger than just the breast. It extends up to the collarbone and from the armpit across to the breastbone in the centre of the chest. The breasts sit on the chest muscles that cover the ribs. Each breast is made of glands, ducts (thin tubes) and fatty tissue. Lobules are groups of glands that can produce milk. Milk ows from the lobules through a network of ducts to the nipple. The nipple is in the centre of a darker area of skin called the areola. Fatty tissue ďŹ lls the spaces between the lobules and ducts and protects them. A woman’s breasts may feel different at different times of her menstrual cycle, sometimes becoming lumpy just before her period. Breast tissue also changes with age. Breast tissue in younger women is mostly made of glands and milk ducts, but older women’s breasts are made up mostly of fatty tissue. The breasts also contain lymph vessels and lymph nodes, which are part of the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system helps ďŹ ght infections. Lymph vessels move lymph uid to the lymph nodes. Lymph nodes trap bacteria, cancer cells and other harmful substances. There are groups of lymph nodes near the breast under the arm, near the collarbone and in the chest behind the breastbone. Cancer cells may start within the ducts (this is called ductal carcinoma) or in the lobules (lobular carcinoma). Ductal carcinoma is the most common type of breast cancer.

The information in this section is about ductal and lobular carcinomas. Other types of cancer such as inammatory breast cancer and Paget’s disease, behave differently and may need different treatment.

The Ontario-wide Natural Homes Tour is taking place across the province this Sunday, Oct. 6. Above, this Perth area home is one of the 35 others that will be featured throughout the region.

Natural homes in area open to public Sunday, Oct. 5 Community – Experience the look and feel of some unique green homes during the popular annual Ontariowide Natural Homes selfguided tour, Sunday, Oct. 6, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., being organized by the Ontario Natural Building Coalition, a grassroots organization dedicated to the promotion of natural building. An off-grid straw bale home and a LEED’s standard house with a straw bale studio, are among those welcoming visitors to explore their confines, together with 35 others across the Perth area and beyond. A $10 passport – or a donation – provides admission to as many places across the province as you can visit in the day. Directions and other tour

details are available at www. For those without Internet access, call 1-877872-9225 before the day of the tour. This tour is the perfect opportunity to step right inside some natural buildings, see what they are like, and get honest feedback from the owners about all aspects of their homes. Most structures feature other “green” technologies as well, including solar and wind electricity, composting toilets, earthen plasters, green roofs, natural finishes and more innovations. Natural building may be the housing equivalent to the increasingly popular 100mile diet – living in energy efficient homes and additions that are crafted from mini-

mally processed, renewable and local materials. People choose natural homes for reasons ranging from energy efficiency, to the healthiness of the materials, to a desire for architecturally interesting and unique homes and additions. There is an appeal for every interest and the demand continues to grow. Captivated with the idea of strong, durable, super-insulated and beautiful homes that cost no more than conventional construction and which offer remarkable environmental benefits, more than 250 natural homes, offices, additions and even institutional buildings have been constructed in Ontario and Quebec over the last several years. Submitted by the Ontario Natural Building Coalition.

For one terrifying night only: Interim CEO for Storm Internet Services Carnival Diablo in Carleton Place Business – Storm Internet Services Inc. (Storm) announced Sept. 13 that its board has appointed Arnold Kwong as the firm’s interim chief executive officer (CEO). Kwong will lead the firm after Dave Chiswell who has served as CEO the last three years. During Chiswell’s tenure annual revenue grew more than 40 per cent, the DSL and fibre customer base grew by 50 per cent, and wireless customers doubled, with headcount up 40 per cent to more than 40 people. Chiswell has taken on a new challenge as vice president of product development of the Ottawabased Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA) where he will help the organization in the increasingly competitive domain name market by leading the pursuit of new product and service offerings. “We wish Dave every success in the future,� said Kwong. “Dave’s insights and operations lead Storm’s growth from key contracts and funding. During Dave’s tenure Storm’s expansion in Lanark and the Ottawa Valley added communities we serve. Dave’s results show in the response as Storm has opened new offices in Perth and Chesterville.� As interim CEO, Kwong will lead the search for a permanent CEO for Storm. Over more than 20 years, Kwong has worked with MB Foster Associates Limited (Chesterville) where he

The town’s recreation and culture department sponsors the performance. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the chills and thrills begin promptly at 7:30 p.m. “We are very pleased to present Canada’s longest running sideshow,� said Jessica Smith, the town’s community planner, “and we just love working with Carnival Diablo.� Tickets are $15 each, available at the door or in advance at the community centre. A small canteen will sell refreshments. Scott McClelland is the evening’s main entertainer, playing the role of ring monster Nikolai Diablo. McClelland, last year, brought his Asylum of Horrors to town, and in 2011, residents braved his Chamber of Horrors at the historic Moore House. On Canada Day this year, many celebrated with Professor Crookshank in Riverside Park. “A lot of people travel from outside town to catch Scott’s shows,� said Smith. “They are so popular.� A warning to parents, Carnival Diablo is not suitable for children under the age of 16. “It’s definitely not a family show,� said Smith. Content is graphic and there are a number of astounding, dangerous feats that put human endurance to the test. To name a few: the human blockhead, iron tongue man, glass walking, razorblade swallowing, electric chair and bed of nails. For the first time on stage, Nikolai will attempt the infamous bullet catch – a trick so dangerous even the magnificent Harry Houdini wouldn’t try it. Joining the ring monster in Carleton Place is the Gothic Lolita Ophelia, and Carnival Diablo is proud to introduce its newest human marvel – Omar the Impervious. He will be performing age-old Fakir stunts from India. Showcased on the Discovery Channel, National Geographic Channel, TLC and more, Carnival Diablo is a show not to be missed. “Seating is limited to only 350 people,� said Smith. “To avoid being disappointed, everyone is encouraged to get their tickets early.� McClelland’s background in carnivals and sideshows goes back three generations. From 1920 to 1968 his grandfather operated Canada’s largest travelling sideshow, and his grandmother was a sword swallower. “Carnival Diablo is the perfect lead in to Halloween,� said Smith. Carambeck Community Centre is located at 351 Bridge St. For additional information relating to the show, contact Smith at 613-257-1704 or

Proudly serving the communities of Carleton Place, Mississippi Mills and Beckwith since 1867 2nd Section

Mississippi Mills woman will be remembered for kindness, generosity By KELLY KENT

Community – Sitting in the back yard of Jim and Mary Hugessen’s home on the island in Almonte surrounded by beautiful gardens filled with colourful flowers, the river running gently around the border of the property, and their dog, Rosie, happily prancing around in the well-cut grass, one can tell that the couple led the good life, enjoying each other’s company for as long as they had together. Mary Rosamond Hugessen passed away suddenly on Sept. 15 at the age of 80, just three days after she and her husband celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary. “Mary really was an incredible woman,” said Jim. “She had a big, kind heart.” Mary’s generosity and kindness will be remembered by the many people she helped and worked with in her community. For years, Mary volunteered her time to work closely with Almonte General Hospital, the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum and her church, St, Paul’s Anglican Church. “She was a very busy woman,” Jim said, smiling. “But she was very good at what she did and she loved every minute of it.” Mary was born on April 12, 1933, and grew up in Quebec. She and Jim knew each other as children, and although they crossed paths many times, it wasn’t until they trained as lawyers together at McGill University that they really became acquainted. “She was a year behind me in her studies,” Jim said, “but we still found time to be together.” The year Mary graduated from McGill, on Sept. 12, 1958, the two married and began to settle down. “We had our first child shortly after we got married,” Jim said. “So she never really got the

chance to become the lawyer that she had trained to be.” Mary and Jim had five children, three boys and two girls, over the span of 10 years: Jamie is the oldest at 54, then Jill, Alicia, Alex, and Ross, who is the youngest at 45. Each of their children have children of their own now. There are 13 grandchildren in total with only two girls in the bunch. “We have quite a few boys in the family,” said Jim, laughing. While Jim made a prestigious career for himself as a senior judge at the Superior Court in Montreal, Mary stayed home to raise the children. Eventually, when their youngest child began attending kindergarten during the day, Mary was able to begin her own career, although she went in a different direction than she had originally planned. She became a social worker. Mary earned her Bachelor of social work and then her Masters of social work and worked in the Montreal area in recovery homes, where she dealt with people from all walks of life, including recovering drug and alcohol addicts. It seemed, to Jim, to be the perfect fit for someone like Mary; someone with all the patience and empathy of a saint, and the generosity of one, too. In 1983, Jim and Mary moved their family from Montreal to Ottawa after Jim accepted a position in the Federal Court of Appeal. Here in Ottawa, Mary continued to do similar work, making quite a career for herself as well, as the director of the care centre at the Anglican Diocese. In 1990, the family moved once again, coming to Almonte as the final stop on their journey. “We lived in Ottawa for a few years,” Jim said, “but we had always thought of moving out here to Almonte. This is where Mary’s roots are.”

Mary Hugessen will be remembered in Mississippi Mills for her work with the Almonte General Hospital, the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum and St. Paul’s Anglican Church. The Cenotaph Monument in Almonte, “The Volunteer,” was commissioned by Almonte native Lt. Alex Rosamond’s widow, Mary, as a tribute to the men who had fallen in the wars. It is said that Dr. R. Tait McKenzie, who built the statue, modelled it after Alex, despite his wife’s request that it not be. “There’s a story, I don’t know if it’s true or not, that says R. Tait McKenzie smudged the cap badge on the statue after Mary, Alex’s wife, said that the statue looked like him. And if you look closely at the statue today, there is no cap badge number there,” Jim said. Mary Rosamond Hugessen, whose maiden name is Stavert, is Lt. Alex Rosamond’s direct descendant, and she is named after his wife. When they moved to town, Mary and Jim purchased the stone mansion at 81 Queen Street,

which is now the Almonte Riverside Kitchen and Inn. “It was large,” Jim said. “But we needed a lot of space with the two of us and the five kids.” Retirement The couple retired in the midnineties but neither stopped working. Jim continued to remain active, and became a member of the accessibility committee with the Town of Mississippi Mills after he lost his sight. Mary, though, spent her retirement perhaps more busy than she was during her professional career. She became involved on a volunteer basis with the Almonte General Hospital, becoming a member of the board of directors. Eventually, her work and dedication earned her the title of chair of the board of directors, and furthermore, she became the chair

of the Almonte General Hospital Foundation. Meanwhile, Mary was the president of the Mississippi Valley Textile museum for a number of years and spent a fair bit of time as the warden of her church, the St. Paul’s Anglican Church and as the chair of the parish council there. She also chaired the Local Architectural Conservation Advisory Committee in the area for a number of years. “Those are the main ones, at least,” said Jim after he counted off Mary’s various volunteer initiatives. “There were more, for sure.” Although Mary was kept very busy in the community, she and Jim still found time to participate in a number of hobbies that were close to their hearts. The two spent a fair bit of time horseback riding and both cross-county and downhill skiing, making good use of their country home at Mont Tremblant. “We did those things right up until a couple of years ago,” said Jim, who mentioned that Mary had developed arthritis in her later years. When they weren’t hitting the slopes or tacking up, however, Mary could be found puttering around in her gardens, which she tended with as much love and care as if they were her children. She was also a fan of handiwork, which became apparent as Jim pointed to his colourful, thick, hand-knitted socks. “We call them granny socks,” said Jim. “I wear them all the time, especially now that she’s gone.” At one time, Mary had taken a dress design course from nuns and had become hooked; she could often be found hunched over a sewing machine, stitching together clothes for her family that she had designed herself.

Just a few years ago after their kids had gone from the nest, Mary and Jim moved one last time, to a smaller house on Carleton Street, right beside the locked bridge that leads to the estate owned by Lt. Alex Rosamond. “We have access to the bridge and to the property behind it,” said Jim. “Rosie (his dog) and I often walk around there.” When they moved from the manor on Queen Street, they sold the building to Rob Prior, who opened the restaurant and inn that is currently there. “We ate there often,” Jim said. “It was neat to have dinner at a restaurant in the house we lived in for so many years.” The day before Mary’s memorial service, Jim, his family and close friends met at the Almonte Riverside Kitchen to have dinner and celebrate Mary’s long and happy life and her many accomplishments. Mary died suddenly of a heart attack at her home on Carleton Street. As far as Jim knew, she was not ill and never had been. But, although her death was unexpected, Jim says that is the way Mary would have wanted to go: quickly and with dignity. Those who knew Mary will remember her for her kind spirit and her enthusiasm. Jim, who knew her best after 55 happy years of marriage, described her as “energetic, generous and intelligent.” “I’m not sure if I got those in the right order,” he said. “But that was who Mary was, from the moment I met her to the moment she was gone.” She leaves behind a big pair of shoes to fill in the community and her presence will be missed by all who had the chance to be a part of her life. But none will miss her more than her husband, children and grandchildren. “She lived a good life,” said Jim. “I’ll miss her every day.”

Men flaunt great gifts at Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s auction

FINE From front page

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would like to talk to it; however, I will read from (Swayzeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) last statement,â&#x20AC;? said the deputy mayor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;He also threatens to make all the papers and email public, which may result in further violations of the code of conductâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.â&#x20AC;? As stated by the code: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Members of council... shall treat every person, including other members of council, corporate employees... and the public, with dignity, understanding and respect for the right to equality and the right to an environment that is safe and free from harassment and discrimination.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I apologize,â&#x20AC;? said Sonnenburg. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am politically incorrect. I will apologize for being politically incorrect. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the end of it.â&#x20AC;? As a result, the deputy mayor loses four weeks pay, which amounts to $1,769. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So be it,â&#x20AC;? said Sonnenburg of the fine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the first time Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve paid. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve paid twice. This will be the third time Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve paid. I may pay again.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I tend to be outspoken,â&#x20AC;? he continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I tend to say what I mean, and I tend not to be politically correct.â&#x20AC;? If he is wrong, Sonnenburg exclaimed the electorate would decide, not this chamber. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This chamber can do what it wants,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I can sit in this chamber after the next election, it will be because the electorate supports me, and I hope they do.â&#x20AC;? LeBlanc said it was important for her to point out that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the decision was not made by the members of this council.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;No, it was made by your servant,â&#x20AC;? said Sonnenburg. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I beg your pardon,â&#x20AC;? responded the mayor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The decision of council was to hire the integrity commissioner so that council would not be the people who point the finger and make the decision.â&#x20AC;? Sonnenburg stated the integrity officer is â&#x20AC;&#x153;both prosecutor and judge that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re paying for.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We all voted for it,â&#x20AC;? said LeBlanc. Though Sonnenburg will be docked his salary, he is not suspended. He can continue to carry out his councillor duties, attending meetings.

News – The Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario (CDSBEO) is issuing a response to information which has been released regarding a school assignment which requested students to write a suicide note, based on the novel, The Chrysalids. Current information in the media reports that a teacher at Notre Dame Catholic High School in Carleton Place issued the assignment to students. School principal, Dave Chaplin, has verified that this assignment was not issued to students, and that this report is incorrect. The principal has reported that the students were to complete the following: Write a letter from Harriet to her sister Emily, expressing her frustration about the society of Waknuk. The goal was for students to use the medium of letter writing to demonstrate their understanding of the oppressive society in which the novel takes place. The letter assignment was not intended to be a suicide note; this has been misinterpreted. Suicide and children’s mental health is a very serious issue, which our board does not take lightly. The CDSBEO has invested, and will continue to invest, many resources to support our most vulnerable students. Submitted by the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario.

Building Carleton Place Recently I had a preview of the new Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority building located on Highway 7 at the edge of Roy Brown Park. The official opening is in mid-October and I urge you to visit this wonderful eco-friendly facility with your family. We are proud that the MVCA chose to headquarter in Carleton Place and look forward to working together to develop an educational trail system in the nearby forested and wetlands area; there will be many other opportunities for partnering as well, no doubt.


noted Fraser Scantlebury, executive director of UWLC. “The impact of the tour on all participants was immediate and direct, and it was great to see attendees share in the stories of those that our member agencies support.” On this year’s tour you will have the opportunity to experience these community programs and partnerships in action: • Learn about how Community & Primary Health Care benefits individuals in the community; • Have the opportunity to hear how the services of the CNIB help people in your community experience a richer life from an individual that receives assistance from CNIB; • Enjoy a General Diners Lunch with seniors at Mills Community Support; and • Have a look at the programs and initiatives taking place at the Carleton Place and District Youth Centre, and hear what today’s youth are doing.


News – There is no better way to understand how United Way Lanark County (UWLC) and our member agencies have impact within our community than by participating in one of our Seeing is Believing tours. On Oct. 8, we are inviting members of the community to join us in a tour of Carleton Place and Mississippi Mills, visiting several member agencies along the way. Up close, you will have the opportunity to see the work that United Way’s local partners are doing to make change happen in our community – and to discover the impact of your contribution in creating long-lasting social change. You will also increase your own awareness and knowledge of United Way Lanark County and how we work to make a difference in the lives of thousands of people. The tour will take place from 10:45 a.m. until 2:15 p.m., and will include lunch and transportation. “It is our goal that you walk away with a better sense of what it is that our member agencies do within the community, helping to make it a stronger and better place to live. It also gives our member agencies the opportunity to connect with people that directly help them in achieving positive change,” said fund development officer Emily Danaher. “After the first ever Seeing is Believing tour went so well last year, we knew it needed to become a regular event,”

This impressive building adds to the list of public structures in Carleton Place that are architecturally and/or historically significant. We all point to our magnificent Town Hall, now in its 117th year, as the jewel of the Mississippi; what child in town doesn’t think of this as a castle! Impressive in its own right is our first Town Hall, located on Edmund Street and now housing the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum. It was the Town Hall from only 1872 to 1879, then served the town for the next 90 years, well known to thousands of alumni as Victoria School.

Over the years, the list of publicly-owned buildings grew and all of them contribute to the architectural beauty of the community. Our Water Treatment Plant building nearing its 100th birthday sits kitty-corner from the stunningly-located home of the historic Carleton Place Canoe Club. Both are significant buildings as is the Old Train Station which we were fortunate to acquire before the CPR carried out its plans for demolition. A wonderfully generous private donation helped build our bustling public library, an attractive modern building in centre town. In more recent times, the staff and members of Council are proud to be a part of the vision that lead to the building of our state-of-the-art Day Care building on Francis Street and our latest addition of the Market Square Pavilion. The historic Moore House rests in its new location with its new role as the Roy Brown Museum following the epic move down Bridge Street on a rainy April day some six years ago. Even the sweet make-over of the old Fire Hall/Youth Centre building at the opposite end of Beckwith Street always brings a smile to passers-by; watch next year for historic murals to fill the blank spaces on the building. Everyone can think of other buildings in Carleton Place that could make this list of significant town structures — churches, old mills, heritage downtown commercial buildings, the Woolgrowers, private homes… We are fortunate that we have these gems in our community and salute those who own them, care for them, and preserve them for the future. The old stones — and the new ones — all have stories to tell.

Carleton Place Bulk Barn supports Alzheimer Society of Lanark County By TARA GESNER

Business – Bulk Barn in Carleton Place has again provided its support to the Alzheimer Society of Lanark County (ASoLC) – collecting donations through the sale of coffee cut outs. An outstanding $3,179 was raised by way of the store’s Coffee Break fundraising program. “The Carleton Place Bulk Barn sells coffee cut outs for two weeks in September every year,” said Bobbi-Jo Jarvis, fund development, ASoLC. “It is a huge supporter and goes above and beyond each year to raise money for our local society.” On Saturday, Sept. 21, World Alzheimer Day, the local franchise and head office matched all funds – up to $10 per donation. Therefore, for every $1 gift, $3 went to the ASoLC. The Alzheimer Society Coffee Break fundraising program has been running at all Bulk Barn loca-

tions since 2005. What is the initiative? “This is a nationwide event where businesses, friends, families and co-workers gather together to raise funds for their local Alzheimer Society,” explained Jarvis. There are a number of ways to host a Coffee Break fundraiser. To name a few: barbecue, bake sale, garage sale, dress-down days, silent auction and 50/50 draw. Carleton Place storeowner Albert Schoonderbeek offered incentive prizes to his customers as well as his staff. “For a $1 to $4 donation the customer’s name went into a draw for one of five gift baskets,” said Jarvis. “For a $5 or more donation their name was entered into a draw for two 100 level tickets to an Ottawa Senators hockey game.” The Ottawa Senators tickets went to Kim Campbell, and the winners of the baskets were Jeff Bretzlaff, Kim Ryan, Sandy Desroches, Mike

Add a voice to preventing a Canadian problem Editorial – It’s not just a Canadian problem, it happens around the world. But we can add a voice against the growing evidence that abuse of children continues to happen, sometimes virtually in front of our very own eyes. Forms of abuse are not limited to rape or various forms of molestation. Abuse includes the non-accidental inflicting of physical injury; physical, medical, educational or emotional neglect; and substance abuse. There’s also the issue of sexual abuse or exploitation that stem from engaging in online activities, including chat rooms, texting and other social-networks. With the heightened sophistication of the cyber playground, never has society been so alerted to the potential risks of predatorial behaviour. Yet,

abuse is all around is, whether sexual or in other forms. Last year alone, the Ontario Association of Children’s Aid Societies received 165,673 referrals about possible abuse and neglect of children and youth. Many of these are related to socioeconomic factors, as families struggle with poverty, poor mental health, substance abuse and social isolation, but many instances have little or nothing to do with poverty, as community members take advantage of children who, as expected, are often ill-equipped or unable to defend themselves. Community members need always to be vigilant of the signs of abuse, and to be a voice for the community, by listening to the signals provided by children and by reporting concerns

to their local family and children’s service. October, as Child Abuse Prevention Month, is as good a time as any to remind ourselves and others that children need to grow up in a safe family environment. As vigilant defenders of our and others’ children, we can watch for signs of abuse, neglect or family crisis. These include unexplained inju-

ries, fear of a specific adult, difficulty making friends, sudden changes in behaviour and inappropriate sexual behaviour . After all, you don’t need to be sure that a child is being abused to call the Children’s Aid Society and express your concerns.

Mississippi View: the scoop on what’s happening this week By KELLY KENT

News – Here’s a look at what’s happening in Mississippi Mills. Mississippi Mills council Sept. 17 Big Brothers Big Sisters At the Committee of the Whole meeting Sept. 17, Stephen Cotnam of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lanark County gave a presentation outlining the benefits of having such a program in the community, in honour of the program’s 40th anniversary this year. Cotnam spoke of a study conducted by The Boston

Consulting Group for the Big Brothers, Big Sisters program, which compared the life outcomes of 500 of the program’s participants to a control group who had not be involved. The study, Cotnam said, found that those who were involved in Big Brothers Big Sisters as children improved in all areas of life and that for each dollar invested in the program, the community saw a return of around $18. In 2012, five children were involved in Big Brothers Big Sisters in Mississippi Mills; $5,250 was invested into the youth, and Cotnam said that in the future, the community should see a return of $94,000

through charity work, taxes and other avenues from these kids. Cotnam also requested funding from the committee on behalf of the organization of $3,000 a year for the next three years, and will be applying for a grant.

Mississippi River Power Corporation lease termination On Sept. 17, Committee of the Whole received written notice from the Mississippi River Power Corporation stating their intent to terminate the lease of the southwest side of the Metcalfe GeoHeritage Park that they hold with the town. In their letter, the MRPC said that their board of directors questioned the benefit of continuing to hold the lease at their meeting Aug. 28.

Library resignation Committee of the Whole received a letter from Robert H. MacDonald, the Mississippi Mills representative on the Carleton Place Library board, who was announcing his resignation Around town It’s a bird, it’s a plane! after 13 years of service. Coun. Shaun McLaughlin The town will soon begin the has informed the Canadian Gazette that low-flying aircraft search for his replacement.

will be seen in the area from Oct. 1 to Dec. 31 as part of a survey being conducted by the Ontario Ministry of Northern Development and Mines. The planes will be flying just 200 metres above the highest local obstacle and will appear to be incredibly close to the ground. “So if you see low-flying aircraft,” McLaughlin said, “they are (probably) not U.S. drones.” Water restrictions As work continues on the Almonte water tower, residents are reminded that the usual summer wa-

ter restrictions will extend until Oct. 18. Usually the restrictions are lifted Sept. 30, but will need to remain in place until the water tower’s reserve is filled again after work is completed. The restrictions are as follows: Odd numbered houses may water on odd calendar days between 5 a.m. and 9 a.m. and from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. Even numbered houses may do the same on even calendar days. All normal use of water, such as bathing and drinking, are not restricted.


Councillor commends musical talent in Ottawa Valley DEAR EDITOR: The first time I saw Jordan McIntosh perform was on Bridge Street several years ago outside the Queen’s Hotel in Carleton Place. Sunday night I had the privilege of attending the 2013 Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame Awards Show at Centrepointe Theatre in Ottawa, where Jordan was the opening act. His performance was flawless and just reinforced where he is headed in his musical career. Jordan is the total package and has everything it takes to

become a huge star. As a councillor in the town of Carleton Place, I was filled with pride at the representation from our community. The beautiful Darlene Thibault, with her angelic voice wowed the crowd. Dave Brown, singing his stunning rendition of ‘The Working Man’ brought tears to many eyes. Jamie McMunn, who joined hall of famer Freddy Dixon on stage, gave a further reminder that Ron ‘The Fox’ McMunn will never be dead as long as he and brother Jeff are alive.

To cap off the night, after professional performances from all the entertainers, was none other than the famous Bowes Brothers singing as their alter egos, the Statler Brothers. The Bowes’ performance was the perfect end to a class event in every respect. I would like to point out that a show that runs as smoothly as Sunday night’s does not happen by accident. Anyone who has worked to put on an event of that magnitude knows that it takes strong direction back stage, and that

task was shared by none other than our own Judi Moffatt and Pam Clements. Judi is a director of the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame, and Pam is vice-president. Congratulations to both. I would also like to say that it gave me great pleasure to see such a large representation from Carleton Place in the audience. Cavanagh Construction Ltd., as always at events like this, was a major sponsor. Jerry Flynn, councillor Town of Carleton Place


Dr. John King practised medicine in Almonte for 46 years Dr. John King, who practised medicine in Almonte for 46 years, passed away September 22, 2013. Born in Moncton, NB, Dr. King came to Almonte in 1959 in response to a request for locum coverage from Dr. Rolf Bach. An intended one-year locum grew to more than four decades in the community. When Dr. King arrived in Almonte, plans were underway to replace the overcrowded Rosamond Memorial Hospital with a new facility. The Almonte General Hospital opened in May 1961, and Dr. King spoke at the official opening on behalf of the medical staff. While the Rosamond Memorial and Almonte General hospitals had a number of doctors on active medical staff and as visiting consultants during the 1950s and 60s, the only two physicians with Almonte-based practices throughout most of this period were Dr. King and Dr. Bach. In 1967, Drs. Bach and King admitted more than 70 per cent of the Almonte General Hospital’s patients. “Essentially, for a dozen years or so, it was just three physicians serving the community: Dr. King, Dr. Bach and other physicians here for a few years at a time,” recalls Dr.

Dr. John King Frank Murphy, who started his family practice in Almonte in 1972. “Dr. King had a large family practice and his patients were devoted to him.” In 1975, Dr. King chaired a committee to examine the feasibility of adding a complex continuing care wing to the Almonte General Hospital. The 26-bed Rosamond Wing officially opened in 1982. He witnessed many other significant events relating

to health care in the community, including the plans to redevelop the Hospital and Fairview Manor. Dr. King retired from practice shortly after the sod turning on the Hospital-Manor Redevelopment Project. At his retirement party, held at the Almonte Civitan Hall on October 23, 2005, the room was packed with well-wishers to honour and thank him for his years of dedication to the community. He graduated from the University of New Brunswick in 1950 with his B.Sc. in Biology and from McGill in 1954 with his medical degree. He interned in general surgery for five years in Montreal and in Saint John, New Brunswick. An accomplished athlete in many sports, Dr. King excelled in track and rugby and was induced into the Fredericton Sports Wall of Fame in 1999 along with his relay team that won the Canadian Championship in 1947. “Dr. King played an important role at AGH and in our community for many years,” said Hospital President and CEO Mary Wilson Trider. “On behalf of our physicians, staff and volunteers, I would like to extend our deepest sympathy to the King family.” Dr. King’s funeral was held September 25, 2013.

Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; In early September, I received a question with a picture of a goose, smaller than the Canada Geese in the picture. From the picture, this smaller goose looked like a blue phase Snow Goose. I had seen one, with six other white phase Snow Geese in Pakenham last week. Thank you for the picture, Sandra Dedrick. Next door, our neighbours Sylvia Stirret and Dave Hurd, had a flock of about 30 Cedar Waxwings briefly visit their backyard on Sept. 21. The Waxwings will be enjoying berry trees now. Sept. 22 seems to have been hummingbird day. Three readers called to tell of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds coming to their hum feeders. Peggy Stewart, Beckwith Township, Denise Jones, Lanark-Highlands Region, and Ed Carew, Drummond/North Elmsley, all had hummingbirds come to their yards. In Mississippi Mills, we had a female ruby-throat come to our feeder. Denise has several Blue Jays and an in-

creased number of Black-capped Chickadees that come to the feeders. A Whitebreasted Nuthatch is becoming a regular visitor now. That same day, Cliff Bennett saw a Red-shouldered Hawk in our west woods. Ray Sample of Corkery area, called to tell of neighbor friends who have a hummingbird as well. They still have Eastern Bluebirds around their property. Ray asked where the American Robins and Redwinged Blackbirds have gone.

When breeding is over, robins join into large flocks that roost together at night, and feed together by day. Instead of feeding on our lawns, they begin to feed on ripening fruits of shrubs and trees, especially when snow cover prevents ground feeding. In late summer, we all of a sudden do not see any Red-wings. This is the time of their molt, and they join other Red-wings in a secluded marsh until the molt is completed. Then they return, feeding and roosting together, before they start to migrate south. From fall through winter, American Crows gather in large noisy flocks. Often we see flocks of crows feeding in the fields. Late afternoon, groups of crows fly along a distinct line towards a common roost for the night. Please call Lynda at 613-256-5013 or email with your bird reports.



Many hummingbirds can still be found in area

Crown and Pumpkin Studio Tour celebrates seven years

Submitted photo

The seventh annual Crown and Pumpkin Studio Tour is set to take over Mississippi Mills Oct. 12 to 14. There is a line-up of 40 artists and artisans who will open their studios to visitors, including Meredith Kucey-Jones of Almonte. Above, one of jewelry designer Kucey-Jonesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; creations. group of artists and studio owners in the area, Mullally included, got together and decided they wanted to open their spaces up to the public. The first shows were sponsored by Ramsay Township, before the amalgamation created Mississippi Mills, Mullally said, and it is from the Ramsay crest that the show gets its name. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The crest had a crown, representing the group of United Empire Loyalists who lived in the area, and a pumpkin, representing all the

famers, so someone suggested the name Crown and Pumpkin,â&#x20AC;? Mullally said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It seemed more fun than calling it â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Ramsay Studio Tourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; or something like that.â&#x20AC;? Every year the committee of artists gets together and creates a map of all the studios who have agreed to participate in the tour. Maps are then printed and distributed. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up to the locals to come and go as they please. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can do the whole thing in a day or you can spread them all out

Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; There are a lot of things to look forward to over Thanksgiving weekend: time with family and friends, the turkey dinner, the pumpkin pie and, if you live in Mississippi Mills, the Crown and Pumpkin Studio Tour. The seventh annual Crown and Pumpkin Studio Tour is returning to Mississippi Mills again this year in its regular time slot. This event has been happening in the area every year over Thanksgiving weekend, which is from Oct. 12 to 14 this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The dates shift and change, of course,â&#x20AC;? said the tourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s organizer, Barbara Mullally, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but we always hold it over the holidays ever year.â&#x20AC;? The event is a sort of free-form tour of various arts studios in the Mississippi Mills area. This year, participants can follow their maps through 17 different stops to see studios of artists like jewelers, woodworkers, painters and potters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We really have a wide variety of art mediums to see,â&#x20AC;? said Mullally, who owns Moondance Gallery in Clayton, one of the stops on the tour, where she works as a jeweler. The tour was created after a


over the whole weekend,â&#x20AC;? Mullally said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Or you can do some and skip others. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really up to you.â&#x20AC;? Maps are available in some shops in Mississippi Mills, like Palms and the General on Mill Street in Almonte, or online at The studios are open to visitors on the tour from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day; admission is free. The Almonte Legion will be providing a lunch for $6 each day as well, for participants who would like a bite to eat before moving onto the next studio. The event has been successful over the last seven years it has run, growing in popularity each year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s become sort of a holiday tradition,â&#x20AC;? Mullally said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We get a lot of the same people out each year.â&#x20AC;? Mullally said that the number of studios varies each year: this year there are 17 studios participating, but that other years they have had as little as 12 or as many as 20.

Concert Oct. 25 to benefit furry friends By TARA GESNER

Entertainment â&#x20AC;&#x201C; There may be no actual cat or dog musicians on the bill, but an upcoming benefit concert will raise funds for the Lanark Animal Welfare Society (LAWS). Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss The Claytones at Union Hall on Friday, Oct. 25 beginning at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. There will be a cash bar. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a night of music to celebrate The Claytonesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; new album Reserva, a follow-up to 2012â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lake in the Night. From the Ottawa Valley, the roots/alt-country group consists of Kelly Prescott (vocals acoustic guitar), Anders Drerup (vocals, guitar), Adam Puddington (double and electric bass, vo-

cals) and newest member Pat McLaughlin (guitar, mandolin). Tickets are $20 per person, available at Mill Street Books in Almonte (52 Mill St.) and Gemmillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s General Store in Clayton (613-256-1947). Ten dollars from each ticket sold is going to LAWS. Located near Smiths Falls, LAWS has been caring for abused, abandoned and lost animals for more than 35 years. It is one of two no-kill shelters in all of Ontario. At the beginning of September, The Claytones received the Ottawa Folk Festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2013 Galaxie Rising Star Award. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Combining their ranging influences, they have created a unique blend of original and interpreted songs performed with

tight, three-part harmonies and a warm stage presence,â&#x20AC;? reads the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website. People love animals, and there are many animals in Lanark County that are without a home, without proper care, and who need help from caring people. Union Hall is located in Clayton at the corner of Tatlock and Wolfgrove roads. Unable to attend? Donations to LAWS can be made in person at the shelter (253 Glenview Rd.) or by mail (P.O. Box 156, Smiths Falls, ON K7A 4T1). A donation form can be found on the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website (www.lanarkanimals. ca). Donations are also accepted through Canada Helps by Visa, Master Card, Amex, Interac and PayPal.

Jasper, Ontario man offers parking advice for classic car owners Lifestyle – An email arrived recently from John Evans, C.E.T., in Jasper, Ontario, raising the perennial question of where do you park your classic car if you drive it to the mall? First, John’s letter: “I don’t have an antique car yet but hope to have something soon to restore. I do have a 2007 Dodge Charger that I have babied since the spring of ’08. Nice after-market rims from the States…silver steel metallic paint job…tinted out… classy look…keep it in my heated garage every winter. It’s only seen snow on the ‘lot’…no salt! Maybe it will become a project car some day. Anyway, I take extremely good care of it. I drive it gently and wash it up like it’s a baby. “Now down to the story part. Whenever I drive to town (I’m a country boy), I always park at the back of the lot when shopping…or find parallel parking on the street to avoid those terrible door dings. Body on mine still perfect…no marks. I park way, way from everyone else and walk to the stores. Often, if the lot is approaching capacity, I will look for another nice car to park beside, as I’m sure they will be careful.

the local mall in his OTHER 1940 Mercury convertible. “You have two of them?” I asked. “Yes,” he said. “The one you saw was restored from four other cars, and the one I drove to the mall is a factory fresh original.”

Where he parked I don’t know, but I suspect he picked a spot as safe as possible. I’m always looking for more stories. Email or write Bill Sherk, 25 John St., P.O. Box 255,

Leamington, ON N8H 3W2. Everyone whose story is published in this column will receive a free autographed copy of my latest book: “OLD CAR DETECTIVE FAVOURITE STORIES, 1925 to 1965.”

“So, parking recently at the Independent Grocer in Smiths Falls, I found a nice red glossy Mustang convertible to park beside. He or she parked a little ‘squiffy’ to avoid door dings so I snuggled up to protect both our cars. After shopping, I came out to find a hand-written note beneath my wiper blade, telling me that I’m a ******* for not parking between the lines, etc., etc. I think those of us who park like this do it so others can admire our ‘ride.’ I’ll bet the owner of that Mustang got the same note.” It’s always a challenge to find a place to park when we drive a classic car. John’s letter reminded me of a phone call I made recently to a fellow recently in Florida to get the story of his 1940 Mercury convertible, which I had seen at a car show in Pennsylvania. No answer. Submitted photo I phoned again two hours later and he answered. He just 1953 Chrysler sedan parked close to diagonal ‘NO PARKING’ lines on driver’s side, giving extra room on passenger got back from driving down to side.

Follow this advice on how to help those who are grieving Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; We live in a society that is grief phobic. We do not like to be faced with death; we would prefer to avoid it. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand the complexities of grief and, as a result, most of us do not develop skills to help us grieve the loss of our loved ones, or the skills to help others who are bereaved. When someone we know loses a loved one, we often donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what to do or say, how to offer comfort, or how to best support them. Our intentions are good but we are awkward. In our awkwardness, we often do and say things that are not helpful to those who grieve, and sometimes they are hurtful. To provide some tips about how to support those who are grieving, we asked participants in the Bereavement Support Group what others did and said that had either helped them move through their grief, or been hurtful. Below are their list of Doâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ts. Doâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1. Say â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am very sorry for your loss of your husband, mother, daughter, etcâ&#x20AC;?. Just to say I am sorry seems like a platitude unless you acknowledge the specific loss. 2. Be sincere. For instance, if you ask, â&#x20AC;&#x153;How are you?â&#x20AC;? be prepared to hear the answer and to let the bereaved know you are not just wanting them to say â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fineâ&#x20AC;?. Let the person know you truly want to know how it is for them right now. 3. Acknowledge the loss. Pay your respects, send a card, and go to the funeral. Let the bereaved person know you understand that their life is very different now, that losing a loved one is a big adjustment, and that the person has not only lost the deceased but also the hopes and dreams that they shared. 4. Keep in touch. Say hello to the bereaved person when you see them out on the street or in the grocery store. They do not have the plague! If you are uncomfortable asking them how they are, just say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good to see youâ&#x20AC;?. 5. Phone. Group participants said they appreciated being asked â&#x20AC;&#x153;Would you like me to call you in a couple of weeks?â&#x20AC;? They appreciated people who said â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m only a phone call awayâ&#x20AC;? but only if the offer was sincere. They also appreciated short phone calls to see how they were doing or just to say â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want you to know Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m thinking of youâ&#x20AC;?. 6. Let the bereaved person know it is OK to talk about their loss whenever they want. 7. Offer a hug if it looks like a bad day. 8. Use touch â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a hand on an arm or a shoulder can be very comforting. 9. Continue to invite the

bereaved to social events. They will decline if they are uncomfortable. 10. Talk about the deceased. Mention his/her name and share memories. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not upsetting, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comforting. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ts 1. Abandon the bereaved person. Bereaved people are acutely sensitive to those who dodge into the next aisle in the grocery store or cross the road rather than say hello, and to being excluded from social gatherings to which they would normally have been invited. 2. Make assumptions about what the bereaved need. Ask them. 3. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know how you feelâ&#x20AC;?. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, you just know how you felt when you had a loss. 4. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What happened?â&#x20AC;? unless you know the bereaved person well. Some grievers like to repeat the story many times, others would like to choose whether and to whom they disclose details. 5. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make comments that minimize or trivialize the loss. Examples from our group members include: â&#x20AC;&#x153;He/ she is in a better placeâ&#x20AC;?, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a blessing they are no longer sufferingâ&#x20AC;?, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Life goes onâ&#x20AC;?, or â&#x20AC;&#x153;You need to be strong for othersâ&#x20AC;?. The implication is that the bereaved person does not have the right to be grief stricken. 6. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask about future life plans such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do you have a new friend yet?â&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Are you going to sell your house now?â&#x20AC;? 7. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make comments about how the bereaved should be feeling, or how they should be progressing through their grief. Examples are: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pull your socks up, get onâ&#x20AC;?, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re over it now, arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you?â&#x20AC;?, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first year is tough (implying it must be easy after that)â&#x20AC;?, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Get over itâ&#x20AC;?, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You are wallowing in it, stop feeling sorry for yourselfâ&#x20AC;?, or even â&#x20AC;&#x153;You are moving too fastâ&#x20AC;?. 8. If the bereaved is a family member with whom you have been in conflict in the past, leave the conflict behind and show support. 9. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say â&#x20AC;&#x153;Have a nice dayâ&#x20AC;?! 10. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go to the griever with your problems. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the emotional energy. 11. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am there for youâ&#x20AC;? and then be busy every time the bereaved person reaches out. There are many more examples of what to do and not do when someone you know has lost a loved one. What the examples above show is that it is not difficult to show support for a bereaved person. You can do it in small ways by sending a card; by phoning to say you are thinking of them; by acknowledging that they have had a loss and that it is hard for them; by

mentioning their loved one in conversation; by offering a hug; and by allowing them to cry. You will do more than this for people you know well, but even one of these

small acts is helpful. We offer our thanks to the members of the Adult Bereavement Support Groups, for the wonderful support they give each other,

and for being willing to share their wisdom about what helps and what hurts when a person is grieving. For more information please call 613-267-6400 or e-mail rebec- Rebecca Bowie and Barbara Carroll are Community Home Support â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Lanark County Bereavement Support Group Facilitators.

Carleton Place couple hopes to attend Doctor Who wedding in England By KELLY KENT

Community – A wedding, for most people, is a once-in-a-lifetime event: when the wedding bells have finished ringing and the couple begins their happily ever after together, that’s it. There are no more celebrations except an occasional night out or a special anniversary party. Except in the case of one local couple, who hope to renew their vows at a huge Doctor Who celebration in England just four months after they got hitched the first time around. Brandon and Amanda Armstrong are a pair of newlyweds from Carleton Place who have been specially selected to participate in a group wedding ceremony of 50 couples to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the popular sci-fi TV show Doctor Who. “It’s so perfect for us,” Amanda said. “We are huge fans of the show and we’re so excited to have the chance to go.” Brandon, 28, and Amanda, 27, learned of the event, which will see 50 couples wed in a mass ceremony in a grand ballroom in England, just one short month after they got married on July 20 of this year. They put their names down right away and soon learned that they had been chosen as the only Canadian couple to attend. “We had always joked about going to England to elope before we got married,” Amanda said, “so I was beside myself when we heard that this was going on.” Organized by Special Events group, who pulled off a similar mass Star Trek

wedding a few years ago, this special Doctor Who event will be a once in a lifetime chance for fans all around the world. Doctor Who is a hugely popular scifi TV show about, as Brandon said, a time-travelling alien who has various adventures through time with a companion, who is sometimes but not always human. “It’s so much more than that though,” Brandon said. “But without getting really in depth about it, that’s what it is, in a nutshell. A very small nutshell.” The show started 50 years ago and was very popular in Britain. However, it has taken off in huge proportions since the airing of the new series, gaining a following of thousands of viewers from around the world. The occasion will begin on the anniversary of the show’s beginning, on Nov. 23, 2013, marking 50 years of fandoms, cosplays and the spark that began generations of Whovians. The lucky couples will gather the night of the anniversary in England to watch the anniversary special of the show together, and then, on Nov. 24, the wedding will begin. “Everyone has to dress up,” Brandon said. “It’s sure to be an interesting day.” Fifty couples, dressed up in their favourite cosplays as daleks, timelords, and the doctors themselves, will assemble in the Bloomsbury Ballroom in England, the show’s homeland, to either be wed or to renew their vows. Amanda plans to wear a TARDIS dress to renew her vows, and Brandon See WHO page A/CP14

But we’re the only Canadian couple so far.” The mass wedding was scheduled to be televised in England originally, but since the event has garnered worldwide attention, it will now be broadcast in Canada and Australia as well. In order to be chosen to have the opportunity to attend this iconic event, all 50 couples have to prove they are ultimate Whovians, which, for Amanda and Brandon, was no problem. The couple met six years ago, through a bunch of coincidental connections that can

only come from being born and raised in a small town. “We met for the first time at work,” Amanda said. “We were both working at the Independent grocery store here in town and one day Brandon came through my cash. But soon we started learning some weird ties.” Not only did the pair live literally just a few houses from each other for a number of years, but their mothers attended elementary school together before they were even born. In another strange twist, one of Amanda’s family’s friends, a man who she considers to be like a grandfather to her, turned out to be Brandon’s great uncle. One year after they started dating, Brandon and Amanda learned that they would have a little boy, James, who is now three. “We kind of did things backwards,” joked Brandon. “We already had a little family when we got married.” Brandon was already a big Doctor Who fan when he met Amanda, and eventually it rubbed off on Amanda and, finally, James. The couple’s love of Doctor Who was apparent at their wedding. Everything from the tables to the bridesmaids was decked out in the famous TAR-

Brandon and Amanda Armstrong were wed just a couple of months ago in July at Saunders Farm, in a wedding any ‘Whovian’ would be proud of. Now, they hope to travel to England to renew their vows in a mass wedding of 50 couples to celebrate the 50th anniversary of their favourite show, Doctor Who.

DIS blue and not a single detail was left out. As the couple prepared to say their vows, their son James brought them their rings in a mini TARDIS ring box. Afterwards, they signed their marriage license with a sonic screwdriver pen, and celebrated with a Doctor Who themed cake. Guests got their very own dalek mugs to take home as favours as well. Many of the pieces at the Armstrong wedding were custom made, including TARDIS centerpieces that lit up. Their love of Doctor Who goes even deeper than their wedding. Amanda is one of the founders of the Doctor Who Society, a not-for-profit community of Whovians from Ottawa Valley and surrounding areas. Started in 2011, the society uses social media to arrange meetings and share information about their fandom. Recently, the Doctor Who Society broke a world record for the largest gathering of daleks at one time: 195 fans dressed up in their costumes or their full replicas to accomplish the task. “We’re the only Doctor Who group out there, really,” Amanda said. “There are lots of groups for Star Trek and other things but there’s not a lot for us.”

The couple still have some hurdles to get over before their dream trip becomes a reality. “The event isn’t free,” Amanda said. “It’s going to cost us a bit of money to attend.” All 50 couples must pay a fee to participate in the event, as well as pay their own airfare and lodging while they are guests in the show’s home country. To make their dream honeymoon and vow renewal ceremony a reality, Amanda and Brandon need to raise $3,400 before Nov. 1. “We’re hoping that other Doctor Who fans or just interested couples will help us make our dream come true,” said Brandon. “We’ll be representing Canada while we’re there too, and we hope people will want to see us go.” Anyone wanting to lend a helping hand to Brandon, Amanda and James can visit their fundraising page at, or their Facebook page at timeywimeywedding. Amanda also keeps a Doctor Who blog at www.doctorwhowedding. “It would be an incredible experience to be able to attend this event,” Amanda said. “For Doctor Who fans like us, it would be invaluable.”

You need to pursue your passion. It will give you the individual tool to get you out of that situation. There is a community out there for you.â&#x20AC;? Hildreth grew up in a lower income family in Hamilton, Ont., and did not know bullying â&#x20AC;&#x201C; until puberty hit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when it comes out,â&#x20AC;? said Hildreth, when classmates would pick on him, â&#x20AC;&#x153;this kid (who) wears the same pair of jeans to school every day.â&#x20AC;? Walking home from school one day, he saw a poster for football tryouts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I bugged my family,â&#x20AC;? he said, but, coming from a family of Hamilton Tiger-Cats fans, he soon won them over and took to the field. Still, he never forgot those moments of being teased and taunted, and has since returned to classrooms around the province to deliver the anti-bullying message, one he sees as compatible with

depression. “I have seen parents struggling to survive (after),” said Tam. Going by the numbers, there are a lot of parents struggling to survive, with 4,000 Canadians killing themselves every year. Worse still, every 40 seconds, there is a suicide somewhere in the world. “Why don’t we recognize this?” said Tam. “Adolescence is a time of stressful transition. If we know that, why are we not doing something about it?” For all of the obstacles in the way of a doctor trying to bring a patient back to his or her health, for mental illness, stigma is by far one of her greatest foes. Knowing this stigma forces sufferers to push any outward signs of their trauma deep inside, out of view, even from the sight of those who could help. “People with depression, they often lead two lives,” said Tam. “On the outside, they look happy. But on the inside, they are struggling.” The common perception is that everyone should be happy: “Who wants to be in a group of depressed people?” she said. She called on those gathered in front of her on Mill Street to help “save a life today by…talking about it.” By talking about her own loss, Tam said that Nicole Pearson, a recent Jubilee Award Medal winner, that, “I am sure Brett has saved some lives already. Talking about it is hard, but not talking is deadly.” Nicole saw for herself just how difficult not talking can be for the survivors, even decades after a suicide. She has made herself available to talk to a myriad of community and service clubs, and to any school who invites her to speak. “Every forum I attend, I am guaranteed that I will come away with a incredible story,” said Nicole. A talk at a seniors group in Carleton Place turned out to be no exception. A man in a wheelchair, in his eighties, sought Nicole out after she had spoken to the group, and told her about his sister, who killed herself in the 1960s. “For the first time, he was able to share that, how he had lost his sister,” said Nicole. “I couldn’t imagine, almost 50 years, holding it inside…Back in the 1960s, we didn’t talk about it. Suicide

is difficult to talk about. But we cannot push it to the side.” The memory of her son is ever present, since “a mother’s identity is built around her child,” she said. But seeing the banner for the walk strung across Bridge Street reminds her that “it would be a greater loss to fail to grow from this.” Looking up to the clear blue fall sky, she promised her son, “Brett, we are going to do this again, today.” Father David Andrew of St. James Anglican Church led the blessing, and called for a “blessing on those who struggle with depression and substance abuse.” He also called for an end to the “stigma of silence,” and spoke out to those who are in the midst of their suffering: “Let us share that hope with those who dwell in the darkness of despair. Help them to see that there is hope, that there is help.”

Canadians push win streak to six games with back-to-back victories over Braves Sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Just a dozen games into the season and the Carleton Place Canadians are already in full stride. The Central Canada Jr. A Hockey League club is riding a six-game winning streak, propelling them to the top of the standings and 15th place in the national rankings. Last week, the Canadians took backto-back results over the Brockville Braves in impressive fashion, 7-2 in Brockville last Friday and 7-4 at home on Sunday afternoon. At 10-2-0-0, Carleton Place leads the overall standings by a single point over the Ottawa Jr. Senators (9-0-1-1). Within the Robinson Division, however, the gap is more significant, six points over second place Cornwall Colts (6-3-1-1) who have 14. Sunday at the Neelin Street Community Centre, the Canadians remained undefeated at home this season with a 7-4 win. Despite mustering only 25 shots for the game, Carleton Place took advantage of their opportunities to pull out the victory. In the third period, with the home

side nursing a 4-3 lead, goals by Andy Sturtz and Anthony McVeigh less than two minutes apart sealed the Braves fate. Brett Garvey brought the visitors back to within two goals at the 10:54 mark, but Forest Donovan salted it away with his fifth goal of the year at 17:46. Sturtz had a big game for the Canadians, scoring a hat trick and adding one assist to lead the Canadiansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; offence. Jim Roll and Brett DAndrea also connected in the win. Goalie Justin Laforest made 22 saves to record the victory while his Bravesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; counterpart, Andrew Pikul, shouldered the loss with an 18-save performance. Canadians were probably fortunate to pick up the two points given the amount of time they spent in the penalty box. Referees Peter Coleman and Patrick Brown handed to the home 46 minutes off 15 infractions compared to just 12 minutes off six penalties for Brockville. Braves made good on three of their 13 power play chances while the Canadians went two for six. Friday night in Brockville, the Canadians rolled to a 6-0 lead by the 17:54

Sports – It is with mixed emotions I write this… The Carleton Place Canoe Club (CPCC) must say goodbye to our head coach Ryan Blair. We have been honoured to have Ryan here. Through hard work and dedication he has made the club a place our kids really want to come to. Under his coaching they learned to be fair, responsible and hardworking young adults. They also learned a thing or two about paddling. It will be hard to get used to not seeing Ryan on an almost daily basis. We wish him well in everything he does. He will be here until Oct. 31 and will be back to celebrate at our annual awards banquet in December. Ryan has worked very closely with our new head coach and has prepared him for a seamless transition. So as we say goodbye to Ryan, we welcome Pat Lester as our new head coach starting Nov. 1, 2013. Pat has been a familiar face around the club for a few years. Many of you already know him. He was one of many applicants to apply for the position, and he got it! When you see him around, and I am sure you will, congratulate him! Submitted by Bonnie Mosher, Commodore, CPCC.

Storyland bunny finds new home By TARA GESNER

News – The end. The book has at last closed on Storyland near Renfrew after more than four decades in operation; however, a new tale is set to begin for the theme park’s cherished bunny. The 12-foot high fiberglass rabbit that greeted visitors at the front gate will now call Carleton Place home, purchased for $2,900 last month by resident and businessman Schuyleur Seccaspina. Storyland’s fairy tale ended on Sept. 21 with the auction of characters, rides and other memorabilia from the children’s amusement park. On a cool, rainy Saturday, in excess of 500 people attended the auction, which was conducted by Colin Latreille Auction Services. Schuyleur went with his mother, Linda Seccaspina. “It was money well spent,” he said of his purchase. Snow White, Humpty Dumpty, Alice in Wonderland, Cinderella’s coach, Rapunzel and Hansel and Gretel were all sold. Humpty went for as high as $4,000. No one will ever forget Storyland. “I remember going there when I was five years old,” said Schuyleur. “There is even a picture of me and my brother (Perry Seccaspina) with the bunny.” Submitted photo With “bank type security,” the hare will proudly reside in front of Vittorio Brothers Schuyleur (right) and Perry Seccaspina were at Storyland near Renfrew on Friday, Sept. 27 to pick Automotive on Townline Road.

Fairy tales are food for the soul of childhood. A person who is never too old to believe in magic and fairy tales, Schuyleur was sad to see the way Storyland went down. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, the park lives on through the bunny,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and our doors are always open for people to come and enjoy it.â&#x20AC;? Vittorio Automotive opened in 2006, snowballing ever since: self-storage units, car and truck rentals, U-Haul and more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Things are wonderful,â&#x20AC;? said Schuyleur.

established Storyland. Unable to have children, the couple decided to construct classic fairy tale scenes to delight hikers on their way to Champlain Lookout â&#x20AC;&#x201C; one of the highest points along the Ottawa River and situated at the back of their property. Sadly, in 1973, Durk had a heart attack and control was placed in the hands of John Berkhout, a friend of the family. Through the addition of more scenes, mini golf, small rides, paddleboats and more, Storyland continued to grow under Berkhoutâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leadership. Retiring, he sold the theme park in 2008 to Ottawa businessman Todd Mattila-Hartman and his company, Great North Parks. After three years, StoryHeyda land closed in 2011.

Daycare numbers down in CP Peter Guthrie on Civitan board of directors By TARA GESNER

News – Daycare enrollment in Carleton Place is significantly lower than anticipated. “It all links back to the starting of all-day kindergarten,” treasurer Phil Hogan told council at the corporate services committee meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 17. “It took a lot of our kids away.” Currently, six of the 17 rooms at the Francis Street building are vacant. “Previously, we increased the number of our preschool classes, but this fall these kids moved on to kindergarten,” Hogan said. As well, the town runs a before and after school child care program at Carambeck Community Centre (CCC), from 6:30 to 9 a.m. and 3 to 6 p.m. Monday to Friday. CCC opened its doors to the public last October. “The good news is that Carambeck is start-

ing to pick up,” Hogan said. “We are at higher levels than we were last spring.” Unfortunately, it is still not up to the 2013 budgeted levels. Daycare director Jacqueline Leach is working on a business plan, looking ahead to how daycare can financially sustain itself (this fall and into 2014) with the current enrollment at both facilities. “Until I get a business plan from Jackie, I am really not going to know what we have to do,” Hogan said. “However, it’s probably going to be a combination of things, and it may have some impact on the 2014 (municipal) budget.” Although the issue will be brought forward to a future council meeting, he told the politicians he wanted to bring the matter to their attention because “with six empty rooms, that tells me something is there.” “Jackie has done her best to try and fill them up,” Hogan stressed.

News – Peter Guthrie was recently installed as Region 5 Director on the Civitan International board of directors. Civitan is a non-profit organization of community service clubs with roughly 40,000 active members across four continents. Starting Monday, Guthrie will represent Civitans across Canada on the Civitan International board of directors. Guthrie has been an active Civitan since 1972. Within the organization, has served as president of the Almonte Civitan Club, as well as District Governor and Lieutenant Governor of Civitan’s Canadian District East.

Our significant growth and impressive list of corporate, charitable and non-profit partners is a testament to how we do business.

This 10K gold chain was worth $102.21

The TOTAL payout was… $1276.83 Two 18K gold wedding bands were worth $218.96
