Frightful fun at CP museum Oct. 18 Tara Gesner

Community – There is no better time than Halloween to tell ghost stories. The Carleton Place and Beckwith Historical Society (CPBHS) presents Our Haunted Heritage this Saturday, Oct. 18, at the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum, beginning at 7 p.m.

“Yes, we’re doing it again,” collections manager Jennifer Irwin said. “Last year’s (inaugural) event was a sellout, and it was fun. We’re trying to make history fun.” Our Haunted Heritage speakers include museum volunteer and published author Linda Seccaspina as well as internationally known psychic medium Ken Mason (Whisperingsouls). Mason came to the museum

with a team on Sept. 23 to investigate paranormal activity. The group went down in the basement, video was recorded, etc. “We attempted to match some of their findings to local facts, and I think we were successful,” Irwin said. Mason will present his discoveries on Saturday night. In fall 2013, Mason and a duo See SCARE page A/CP2

News – Mississippi Mills mayoral candidates John Levi, Shaun McLaughlin and Garry Dalgity squared off for round one of three debates on Oct. 9 at Almonte Old Town Hall. Two more meetings are planned in Pakenham on Tuesday (after press deadline) and Thursday, Oct. 16 at Clayton Hall from 7 to 9 p.m. Many have called the Enerdu expansion the single most important issue of the campaign. McLaughlin stated that if he was mayor he would put together a plan to take control of the project and save the Appleton Wetlands, which received a large round of applause. “How do we do that, the province gives municipalities control over solar and wind farms but not water projects,” explained McLaughlin. “We would pass a resolution at council to get the same power and we take that and shop it around to other municipalities in Eastern Ontario and look for allies. I will get in the ministers faces and tell them it is wrong, this is not the way you treat people and is detrimental to our community.” McLaughlin said he has made his position clear and does not accept it in its current form. “I will work very hard to get

control of that project as soon as we can,” said McLaughlin. Levi countered by questioning the current form. “I love how everyone keeps saying they don’t accept it in its current form,” said Levi. “We don’t know exactly what that form is and you want to get control of the process, wouldn’t it be nice to see what the proposal would look like.” Levi continued by saying there is a lot of misinformation and it would have a positive impact on the community. “The development of the weir is a huge economic benefit for the town, we were trying to build it 12 years ago and couldn’t afford it, now we have a proponent who’s willing to spend a million dollars to do it for us,” said Levi. “The weir will help control the water and generate hydro, so there is quite a lot of economic interest to the town in this project.” Levi finished by saying it will become an attraction for the town. “I think Enerdu’s intention is to build a very fine building and will not be a detraction to the community,” said Levi. “In my opinion tourists will love to come and see it.” Dalgity stated that Enerdu did not engage with the people of Almonte properly.

“It created a great number of unknowns, which created fear, which caused the people to up rise against the project which has split this town right down the middle,” said Dalgity who did not support the project when it came to council. “I have seen nothing, I have seen no final drawings and no final footprints,” said Levi. “I will not support it until I see something that looks good and does not hurt the environment.” Youth issue As Take Young People Seriously Youth (TYPS) Centre hosted the meeting, youth Alison Carson asked the candidates what they were going to do to further involve youth in the community. Levi, stumbled with his answer and then said he didn’t think the town eliminated the youth now and he speaks regularly to young people. “I hear from them, I don’t know how they can have official input,” said Levi. “I feel comfortable that I know their view.” Dalgity said that the youth have presented to council a number of times with TYPS, Augusta Park committee and more. “I welcome youth to council anytime they want to come,” said Dalgity.

CDSBEO establishes energy conservation and demand management plan

EQAO results and students with spe-

cial education needs Director of Education, William J. Gartland, shared with the board the CDSBEO EQAO results. “The results are certainly a positive comment on the work our teachers and support staff carry out,” noted Gartland. A particular highlight for the CDSBEO was the successful results of students with special education needs. Dr. Donaleen Hawes, superintendent of school effectiveness, noted that for grades 3 and 6, board students performed well above the provincial average in all

assessments. For grade 3, 61 per cent of students met or exceeded the provincial standard (province – 40 per cent). For the grade 6 results, 66 per cent of students with special education needs met or exceeded the provincial standard (province – 47 per cent). For the grade 9 mathematics assessment, 60 per cent of students with special education needs met or exceeded the provincial standard (province – 37 per cent). For the grade ten Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test results, 33 per cent

met or exceeded the provincial standard Métis and Inuit peoples. (province – 18 per cent).

News – The following are highlights from the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario (CDSBEO) board meeting held Oct. 7 at the board office in Kemptville. The energy conservation and demand management plan has been established to support the reduction of energy consumption across the board. The plan is an overview of all related energy concepts and practices that are currently in place, and fulfils the reporting requirements for the Green Energy Act (Ontario Regulation 397/11). Bonnie Norton, superintendent of business, outlined for the board some of the initiatives in place throughout CDSBEO facilities. “The plan provides a framework for conserving energy and operating sustainable efficient facilities,” explained Norton. “The goal is to raise the profile of energy conservation throughout the system, demonstrate leadership in energy conservation and effectively manage the use of energy in all facilities. Where necessary, the board will take steps to reduce consumption so as to meet or exceed provincial standards.” The CDSBEO reports energy consumption to the Ministry of Energy each July for all facilities and posts the information publicly. The board is slightly below the provincial average for indexed energy consumption. In 2010, an audit was conducted which detailed, independent energy reports for all facilities. These reports provide a framework for possible energy efficiency upgrades, specifically targeting projects with an attractive payback period. “When designing, constructing and renovating spaces, the board uses a number of strategies to ensure energy efficiency,” noted Norton. “Heating and cooling systems are energy efficient and automated through computers. Lighting is also efficient, using T8, T5 or LED technology, and in some cases sensors.” In addition, modern low flow plumbing fixtures, energy efficient windows and curtain walls, and increased insulation values are use in all new or renovated facilities. The board has been working on energy efficiency projects over the last four years, upgrading lighting and mechanical systems, and installing new energy efficient windows at board facilities. Several renewable energy solar projects have also been implemented with funding received from the Ministry under a special grant. Power generated from the three solar installations, housed at St. John Catholic High School (CHS), St. Michael CHS and St. Thomas Aquinas CHS, currently create revenue of approximately $2,500 a month for the board. “The projects also help to engage staff and students to develop a culture of conservation,” noted Norton. “People can go online and track the solar panels performance, and statistics in real time. This creates interesting educational opportunities to learn about renewable resources.”

Build-a-Mountain of Food vows Merrickville reboot, new Santa Claus float for 2014 Desmond Devoy

News – Go tell it on the mountain – and while you’re up there, bring a few canned goods with you. The Build-A-Mountain of Food campaign kick-off was held at Jamesons’ Chinese Restaurant and Buffet in Perth on Wednesday, Oct. 8 and seated before chief organizer Hugh Colton was a group of people he called “a great team.” Indeed, as the campaign has grown over the years, so too have the numbers of volunteers. And, sadly, so too has the need for donated food. In 2013, the campaign collected more than 102,690 lbs of food, and $40,789 in cash. This is the eighth year of the program and, in that time, the drive has collected more than 300,000 lbs of food and more than $143,000 in cash. While the room was full of worthy volunteers, both old and new, Colton singled out Tony Hendriks who, every


James Smith, an advertising consultant with Lake 88 FM, who is involved with organizing the campaign alongside Colton. “It’s a marriage,” he joked. Colton urged the newer members to look to older members for advice. “If you have a question, these people are oiled, they are ready to go,” said Colton. He also encouraged organizers to “drop in and see your grocery stores, even just to say hi,” before your campaign day comes up, he advised. “Then they put a name and a face to the local food bank. It is more personal…it’s just a good thing to do.” He added, half jokingly that, by doing so, “it makes it easier for me! I can ride your coat tails.” Desmond Devoy/METROLAND He praised the supermarkets for their Hugh Colton, head organizer of the Build-a-Moun- the 2014 kick-off in Perth at Jamesons’ Chinese Res- donation bags, and their lists of needed donation items which are handed out at tain of Food campaign, addresses the volunteers at taurant and Buffet on Oct. 8. each stop. “That’s very, very crucial for you, year, without fail, visits all of the partic- what the campaign needs – and does not nation drop-off just outside. “It’s evolved for a lot of reasons, ipating supermarkets to coordinate the need – in terms of pre-packaged food See BUILD page 7 upcoming campaign, and to tell them bags, ready for purchase and quick do- bringing the right people together,” said

12 student Joshua MacMillan, presented insight on the experiences of the group to the board of trustees. In collaboration with Sandy Lake Board of Education, Deschamps and Hutt worked to make this opportunity a reality. “Our focus was on making connections with, and learning from the people of Sandy Lake,” explained Deschamps. “Community Elder, Eddie Fiddler, spoke to us about stereotypes and the influences of the media on perspective. He reminded us to dispel any preconceptions we might have and to simply understand his people. The people of Sandy Lake willingly shared with us, and we learned the importance of connecting with people, of being good listeners, of hearing their stories, and of knowing them as we know ourselves.” The group learned about the challenges of living on a fly-in reserve, far from common services and resources. In addition, they saw firsthand the issues the community deals with regarding medical care, nutrition, diabetes, and addiction. On the reserve, students are able to attend school until grade ten, however grades 11 and 12 must be attended off of the reserve, and many learners choose not to leave home to complete school. Engagement of students is a challenge, and the group tried to connect with youth, engage in sports and dialogue about school with them. “Through a financial literacy learning experience, we visited the community’s large variety store to investigate the realities of eating

Arts – Merrickville’s Jazz Fest (MJF) begins this week. The festival will offer a wide variety of jazz performances taking place at various locations throughout Merrickville’s beautiful downtown core. This year’s lineup will include artists from Toronto, Montreal and Merrickville as well as many performers from the OttawaGatineau area. MJF will welcome close to 20 jazz groups including Montreal’s exciting bebop drummer Norman Marshall Villeneuve, Toronto rising star Swing and Gypsy jazz vocalist Denielle Bassels, and the festival’s first artist-in-residence, acclaimed Ottawa jazz pianist Brian Browne, to name a few. While there will be occasional presentations of other genres of music, MJF can proudly say that it offers almost 100 per cent jazz content. The complete program is listed at the end of the press release and detailed information is available online at “As a regional event in only its fourth year of operation, we are extremely proud that Merrickville’s Jazz Fest has grown so quickly in popularity and appeal”, said MJF co-organizer Peggy Holloway. “Our sincere

Learn about your school board trustee


ditorial – On Oct. 27, not only will you be voting in a new municipal council, but you will also be asked to vote for your school board trustee, be that in the Upper Canada District School Board, or the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario. You will have a chance to vote for French and English boards depending on your area – almost 700 school board trustees across Ontario. A vote for a trustee not only means that education matters, but that you want to help make a difference in your community by voting in the trustee that best suits your needs. According to the Elections Canada website for school board trustees, those who are representing the French and English-speaking students are the members of the district school board. They are locally-elected representatives of the public, and they are the community’s advocate for public education. They are required to carry out their responsibilities in a manner that assists the board in fulfilling its duties under the Education Act. Trustees focus on achievements of students and their well-being. They also participate in decision-making that benefits the board area as they represent the best interests of their constituents. Trustees also act as liaisons between the board and the students/parents.

Fall always created special smells for young Mary Lifestyle – My older and much wiser sister Audrey said it was all in my head. I had discussed it with her at length one Saturday while we were doing our weekly chores.

outside would change again. I knew without a doubt that the smoke from the cook stove was different once the colder weather came. At no other time of the year did I notice the wonderful smell of burning logs as I watched the smoke curl above the roof of the house. And I would wonder why. When I went into the barns at night, they certainly didn’t smell like they did in the heat of the summer. The cows gave off a warmth and it filled the barn, and the aroma of the hay from the loft wafted down. Even the straw in each stall had what I called a cold weather smell. When I mentioned this to my sister Audrey, she said it was just my imagination playing tricks on me…all in my head, she said. The inside of our house smelled different too. The windows were shut tight, and trapped inside were the smells of gum rubbers, propped against the woodbox beside the

The trustee has many jobs. They are responsible for setting needs and priorities of their students, which reflect the educational opportunities that are available. To do this, trustees have to mediate sometimes – it’s not always a cut-and-dry situation. They make decisions about the school board’s budget. They create programs to fit the needs of the community and they even help make decisions about how to spend money they receive from the province – anything from the hiring of teachers, to building new schools and closing older ones. A trustee must do this in collaboration with the other members of the school board by developing policies that work for all students, and ensuring they are implemented effectively. No one trustee can make a blanket decision about how your child is taught or how action is taken when needed. The entire board makes that by placing the student first. School board trustees, like municipal councillors, are vital in the democracy chain. By voting for a trustee, you have a say in the decisions your school board makes and that those views are heard by your board. Before you vote, check out your candidates by visiting Make your voice heard.

Findlay Oval, and the musty smell of winter coats hanging at the back door. And I could smell wool. Everywhere there was wool…in the hats and mitts at the ready for the winter in a basket under the bake table, there was wool. Certainly, these things were nowhere to be seen in the summer! So how could my sister Audrey say it was all in my head? I would wonder why she too didn’t notice the smell of fall. By the time we were well into October, Mother would have put out the braided rugs that had spent the summer rolled up in layers of the Ren-

sports for Grades 7 and 8 students in the 2012-2013 school year. This year, the league will offer UCDSB students regional and cup events in: cross country, Grades 4-8; soccer, Grades 7-8; volleyball, Grades 7-8 and 9-12; basketball, Grades 7-8 and 9-12; and track and field, Grades 7-8. Ferguson, the principal at Almonte and District High School, said several benefits flow from board students participating in the league.

“We want our kids to be physically active and this allows them to do that,” said Ferguson of the value of the league. “We find that kids who participate in team sports experience increased academic performance and a general sense of well-being. And in my experience as a principal, I see incidence of bullying decrease when kids are part of a team.” The program also offers an equal chance for all students to participate, regardless of loca-

There would be the faint aroma of wool and from the papers, and they would add to that special tinge to my nose that told me the season had changed…the smells of summer were gone, and the smells of fall were around me. By that time of year, our summer clothes would be changed to warmer skirts and sweaters. They had been packed away in a trunk over the hot weather, with hands full of mothballs scattered between the layers. It mattered not how long Mother hung each piece out on

the clothesline, she was never able to completely get rid of the smell of the mothballs. They too had the smell of fall. So, it mattered not how much my older and wiser sister Audrey said it was all in my head. I knew without a doubt, this time of year there was a special smell all around me. It came in gusts outside, and hung inside our old log house, and stayed in my nostrils, bringing me a special feeling of warmth and contentment. At that young age, I decided it was my favourite time of the year. There was no doubt about it. Fall had come at last… hadn’t my nose told me so?

tion, as well as a high level of sports experience, said Ferguson. The league has provided coaching certification clinics to staff members in basketball, volleyball and sports program design and nutrition. The board will also run a Grades 4-6 athletic summit

for coaches and interested administrators in November 2014 to discuss ways the league can be improved and to offer even more training to coaches. The next goal of UCSL organizers is to increase the number of intramural sports for intermediate students in Grades 7-12

schools. The plan is to ensure that students who may not have the skills to make the school team get the opportunity to develop them. The league is being led this year by superintendent of operations, David Coombs, as well as area sports co-ordinators.

CHARITABLE GIVING WITH LIFE INSURANCE POLICIES - A WIN-WIN FOR BOTH FAMILY AND CHARITIES The use of life insurance in the context of charitable gifting at death will appeal to those who want to reduce or eliminate taxes at death and/or have a strong desire to make a larger bequest to one or more charities. By Shawn Ryan, CFP, TEP Partner and Senior Insurance and Estate Planner Scrivens Insurance and Financial Solutions

Life insurance is a popular, practical way to make a significant gift to CHEO. Your donation will be wisely administered through investments which will provide a stable source of income to CHEO for years to come. There are three main methods you can gift life insurance: by making a bequest of the proceeds of a life insurance policy through your Will; donating the policy during your lifetime at fair market value; or by naming CHEO as beneficiary and remaining as policy owner.

Here is a scenario where a mother owns purchase a permanent life insurance policy a family business and wishes to gift the for $500,000 and donate the proceeds to shares to her adult children through a charity through her Will. provision in her Will.

The use of life insurance in the context of charitable gifting at death will appeal to those who want to reduce or eliminate taxes at death and/or have a strong desire to make a larger bequest to one or more charities. This should be considered in the bigger context of planned giving options available to donors both during their lifetime and at death.

Lanark County council puts funds behind tourism association cycling map News – The following are highlights from the special Lanark County council meeting held Wednesday, Oct. 8. Council has approved a motion to support the Lanark County Tourism Association’s request for joint project funds in the amount of $7,000. The economic development committee made the recommendation following a presentation at its meeting last month. Jeff Mills, who is cochair of Mississippi Mills Bicycle Month and an advisory committee member with Ontario By Bike and Share the Road, along with Bob Mingie, president of the Lanark County Tourism Association, presented information outlining how a cycling map for the county would mesh with existing themes, attractions and publications. They noted cycle tourism is growing in Ontario and is becoming a way to explore cultural heritage in communities. The delegation outlined the economic benefits of cycling and the money spent by cycle tourists, noting provincial statistics from 2010 showed “2 million Canadian visitors participated in cycling activities in Ontario and spent $391 million.”

ment highlights trails Council approved an official plan amendment for Beckwith Township, which includes an item requiring developers of future subdivisions there to dedicate and construct trails and pathways as part of the required infrastructure of the subdivision, as opposed to providing them as part of a parkland dedication requirement. Warden Richard Kidd (Beckwith Reeve) expressed his support for the amendment. “It’s like treating trail infrastructure the same as we would sidewalks and roads,” he explained. The amendment supports several themes found in the county’s Sustainable Lanark plan, including infrastructure and quality of life (supporting safe walking and cycling) and healthy communities (increased physical activity by providing access to programs and facility, including public spaces and green spaces).

A common misconception is the belief that asking for, and receiving assistance, equates to a loss of independence. In actual fact, asking for and receiving help is what can safely SECURE your continuing independence. For example, think of the work that is required to maintain your home...if you could have assistance in the completing the tasks that you are unable to do, it could make the difference in you being able to safely remain in your home for much longer than if you did not have this assistance. Your independence is positively impacted by this type of assistance, isn’t it? The North Lanark Assisted Living Program is a community based health care service that provides eligible seniors with the personal support services needed to allow them to continue living on their own, or with an informal caregiver at home for as long as possible. These services are coordinated by Mills Community Support with the hospitals in Almonte and Carleton Place to ensure a continuum of care for older adults across Lanark County. Assisted Living Services can help bring peace of mind to individuals and their family by delivering personal support services where and when they are most needed - anytime, day, evening or overnight.

No matter how hard you try to do all the right things in keeping yourself healthy, like maintaining a good diet, exercising appropriately and avoiding things that are known to cause health problems, there are factors in this mix over which you have little control. Things like genetics can have a huge impact on your health; injuries derived from an accident can have a lasting impact that increases as you age; and, chronic illnesses for which there is no prevention or cause that is identiable can result in difficulties with maintaining good health. These various factors can also have a very negative impact on mental health, causing stress, and worry about being able to maintain an independent lifestyle as aging occurs.

Noted naturalist Ken Beattie to inspire at next MVFN talk Community – The Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists (MVFN) will present the second lecture of their new series “When a tree falls in the forest, does anyone hear?” on Thursday, Oct. 16 at the Almonte United Church.

Beattie will inspire with his presentation “Without Education, There Will Be No Conservation!” Beattie has applied his extensive knowledge and experience to urban habitat development, practical environmental projects, food security initiatives, and of

course, education. His professional activities have spanned over four decades and extended to the four corners of the globe. Beattie is renowned on the national and international stage, whether delighting audiences in lecture halls or on cruise ships with his witty and intelligent series of talks entitled The Earth’s Garden, or in presentations at horticultural shows such as Toronto’s Canada Blooms or the BC Home and Garden Show. Beattie has also been the host of award-winning television shows inspired by garden themes and in particular those focusing on wise management of the earth’s resources. He was the

popular host of the live Canadian television series Get Growing. Beattie completed a Niagara Parks diploma in horticulture at the prestigious Niagara Parks Botanical Garden. He is one of Canada’s most esteemed and approachable authorities on most if not all aspects of the plant world and on the relationship between people and plants. Beattie encourages his audiences to live in harmony with nature, even within the confines of a small urban backyard: “To walk in a forest can, and usually does evoke a deeper sense of self and one’s position within a larger scheme. Not all Canadians have the privilege or opportunity however to

‘walk in a forest’. How then do those of us who have walked in a forest, perhaps even metaphorically, synthesize or translate our experiences to others? Engagement or re-engagement with nature, urban conservation ethic, and demonstrated best practices at home, schools, offices and governments may have overwhelmingly positive effects on the next generations.” If we were to lose a species or its habitat, does it matter or is it worthy of our attention? It is im-

perative, now and in the generations to follow, that a much deeper sense of understanding, caring and nurturing of our relationship with nature be established such that any threat to even one species or habitat will evoke not only our attention but also effective intervention. Join us for this talk by Beattie: ‘Without Education, There Will Be No Conservation!’ The talk takes place at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 16 at the Almonte United Church social hall, 106 Elgin

Street. Refreshments and discussion follow the talk and there is a non-member fee of $5. For further information, please contact MVFN’s program chair Gretta Bradley at For all MVFN events, membership and other club information anytime, visit “In all things of nature, there is something of the marvelous” – Aristotle Submitted by the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists.

Discover Ireland’s west coast is like a living time capsule Lifestyle – After writing some columns about our adventures in Ireland this summer I was amazed at how many people emailed or stopped to speak to me about the island nation. People are fascinated by Ireland and most of those who have not visited express a burning desire to do so. Some acquaintances recently returned from a vacation in Scotland, one of our favourite destinations. When I asked how they enjoyed it they said it was wonderful. “Ireland is next on our list,” she said emphatically. Perhaps it is the fact so many Canadians can trace their roots to Ireland that creates such interest? That and the enduring mystery of the place, a country which has yet to yield many of its secrets! We were having lunch in a restaurant in Merrickville a few weeks ago when my wife noticed the name tag worn by the waitress and complimented her on her name. She is called Siobhan. And Kathleen, with her Irish experience, said it perfectly. The correct pronunciation is “shiv – awn”. The young lady was thrilled that someone knew how to pronounce her given name. “Nobody gets it right,” she said in amazement. We told her about our visits to Ireland, including the most recent in June of this year. Her face lit up! “I just have to go over there,” she enthused. “Ireland is at the top of my bucket list!”

“single carriageways.” Translated that means two lanes of traffic, one in each direction. In Ireland the majority are narrow, winding and rough. To underline the problems that can occur, we were on a coach trip along the west coast in 2006 when we came upon a car burning fiercely in the middle of the road. We were stuck there for BY JEFF MAGUIRE more than an hour while the emergency Siobhan by the way, which is a services dealt with the situation. No one common name on the island, is an Irish was injured fortunately. form of Joan. The name has a long history but was introduced into Ireland Lone walker by the Anglo-Normans in the Middle Back to Martin’s story, as they made Ages. It means “God is gracious.” their way slowly along the uneven road This week I will share some stories the rain intensified. Rounding a corner from Ireland and comment on a few of he observed a lone figure walking along the remarkable places we have visited the edge. Drawing closer he saw it was there, with an emphasis on the rugged a young lady who was pulling her coat west coast. high over her head in an effort to ward My good friend Martin Ireton from off the rain. It was a losing battle. West Yorkshire is a really interesting Martin knew the next town was man. He has spent the last 25 years several miles ahead. He couldn’t pass working as a combination driver/tour without offering her a ride. She was guide for a small, family-owned, holiday shocked when the huge (13-tonne) coach firm located near Pontefract, West coach drew up alongside and the door Yorks. opened. On a misty afternoon a few years ago Martin said she was probably 14 or he was driving a bus filled with English 15. She was very shy and hesitant. But tourists along a sparsely populated when he persisted in his offer to give her section of road on the west side of the a lift, she decided to accept the hand fate Irish Republic. had dealt and climbed aboard. There are very few motorways He soon realized why she was so (freeways) in Ireland, south or north. shy. “She spoke Gaelic and didn’t Most roadways are what residents of understand much English,” Martin told the United Kingdom and Ireland call us. That is not rare among those living


in the most remote areas of Ireland, especially along the west coast. Gaelic, officially ‘Gaeilge’ or Irish, is often the first language among residents of that region. The girl was able to tell him that she had a bad tooth ache and was hiking to the nearest town in hopes of finding a dentist. There was no seat available on the bus, but Martin gave her a dry jacket to help her warm up and invited her to sit on the steps next to him. The hostess for the tour made her a cup of tea which she gratefully accepted, toothache and all. They were able to safely deliver her to the community in question. Everyone aboard applauded and bade a jaunty “farewell” as she set off to find a dentist. That is life in Ireland. Outside of the largest centres it is not a prosperous country in many areas and public transport can also be sporadic at best. During the planned portion of our visit to Ireland in June, Kathy and I and our friends were fortunate enough to visit the area called “The Burren.” Located in County Clare, in the mid-west region of the Republic of Ireland, the Burren is an unbelievably barren place. At first glance it appears to be comprised entirely of rock. It covers an area of 250 square kilometres and contains the Burren National Park, which at 15 sq. km. is the smallest of six designated national parks in Ireland.

During the 15th century conquest of Ireland, led by infamous English military and political leader Oliver Cromwell, his army crossed the Burren. The English were startled by the barren, rockcovered, windswept place. It prompted one of Cromwell’s generals to say, “It is a country where there is not enough water to drown a man, not enough wood to hang him and not enough soil to bury him.” Delightful folks, the Cromwellian army! During our 2006 visit to the Burren Kathy and I saw the impressive portal tomb called ‘Poulnabrone dolmen.’ The tomb, built from large, flat rocks dates back to the Neolithic period and is believed to have been erected between 4,200 and 2,900 BC. Excavations revealed the remains of between 16 and 22 adults and six children buried beneath the monument. Ireland is an ancient land with so many stories to tell. A closer examination of the Burren reveals it has more life than you might think at first glance. When we visited in June the rocky landscape was awash in wildflowers. In fact three-quarters of Ireland’s floral species can be found there. It is an interesting area to traverse, but don’t forget your walking boots. It is challenging.

That’s modern luxury.SM


Helping a loved one adapt to a nursing home home cannot accommodate a life’s worth of keepsakes and possessions. But that doesn’t mean men and women have to leave everything behind. Encourage your loved one to bring along some possessions, such as his or her family photos, a favorite chair or smaller mementos from places he or she visited throughout his or her life. Such items can make a nursing home seem less antiseptic and more like a home. * Set up an e-mail account for your loved one. If your loved one still has his or her mental health, then set him or her up with an e-mail account. This allows your loved one to maintain daily contact with family and friends. Many of today’s nursing homes provide facilities where residents can access the Internet. If not, speak to the staff and ask if your relative can bring his or her own computer. If your relative will be able to routinely access the Internet, consider purchasing a digital subscription to the local newspaper so he or she can When moving a relative into a nursing home, find a further maintain a connection to the community.

close to home and makes routine visits from friends and relatives possible enables men and women maintain a connection to their current lifestyle. A home that is miles and miles away from a person’s support system can foster feelings of isolation and loneliness. * Plan trips with your loved one. Just because an aging relative lives in a nursing home does not mean he or she can no longer travel. If a relative is healthy enough to travel, include them on family trips and outings. This includes more routine events like weekly Sunday dinners, kids’ sporting events and other extracurricular activities. The more involved your aging relative are in the daily life of your family, the more likely they are to see the advantages of living in a nursing home. * Encourage your loved ones to take some personal items with them. When moving into a nursing home, men and women must leave behind many of their possessions. This is a simple space issue, as the rooms in a typical nursing


Many older men and women find the transition to a nursing home somewhat difficult. Men and women tend to see a move to a nursing home as a step toward surrendering their independence, and this can be a difficult hurdle for seniors and their loved ones to overcome. Adding to the difficulty is the fact that many men and women move into nursing homes because their physical or mental status requires the help of a professional nursing staff, leaving family members with little to no recourse when aging relatives protest the move. But there are ways to ease a loved one’s transition into a nursing home. * Keep a positive attitude. The stress of moving an aging relative into a nursing home can be significant for all parties involved. But focusing on the positives of nursing homes, such as around-theclock care and daily activities, can help aging relatives look at nursing homes in a new light. In addition, family members who familiarize themselves with nursing homes will begin to see they are often great places for aging men and women to socialize with others their age while receiving the care and attention they need. When discussing the move to a nursing home, focus on these positives and your relative will be more likely to follow your lead. * Choose a nursing home that’s close to home. One of the more difficult parts of transitioning to a nursing home is the notion that men and women are leaving their lives behind once they move into a home. Choosing a nursing home that’s

is the absolutely breathtaking Cliffs of Moher. Rising 214 metres (702 feet) at their highest point the cliffs stretch for eight kilometres (five miles), towering above the storm-tossed Atlantic Ocean. We could clearly see the Aran Islands which lie several miles off the coast. I detailed our June visit to the islands in an earlier column. The Aran Islands, by the way, are comprised of the same rock as the Burren. We arrived at Cliffs of Moher on a perfect day, along with several thousand “new friends.” The site is the most popular natural attraction in Ireland with more than one million visitors annually. Just don’t end up there on a foggy day as my parents did on their excursion to Ireland in 2001. The cliffs and the spectacular vistas were totally obscured. Very disappointing! This year we had limitless views and could easily pick out the sweep of Galway Bay to the north and the tops of the Twelve Pins and Maumturks, two mountain ranges in the Connemara region which lies to the north of Galway City. We visited the Connemara during this trip but it would take an entire column to describe the desolate, mountainous, spectacularly beautiful region.

People who live there are often hours away from the nearest large centre (and hospital). There are just over 30,000 people living in the Connemara and more than 20,000 are native Irish speakers. There are several Gaelic-speaking districts along Ireland’s isolated west coast. Of the nearly 90,000 people living in those areas more than 75 per cent name Irish as their first language. My friend Martin has a host of good stories from his Ireland tours. One day he was studying a map while awaiting the return of his passengers from a garden tour in the Republic. He wasn’t certain what road would be the best to continue their passage along the west coast. In Ireland the secondary roads are designated by the letter R followed by three numerals. He decided to approach an Irish driver, who was sitting in the next bus in the coach park, for some assistance. When he asked the chap how to get to the R478 or the R760, or whatever route he was looking for, the guy looked horrified. “Oh no – no, no! Around here we don’t know the numbers of the Desmond Devoy/METROLAND roads. We all live local!” If you have a comment or question for Jeff Maguire he can Community – The Carleton Place Farmers Market closed for the season on Saturday, Oct. 11.

Take your five senses for a walk in the woods Oct. 18 Community – On Saturday, Oct. 18, Mississippi Madawaska Land Trust (MMLT) invites you to the High Lonesome Nature Reserve to let your five senses guide you through the woods. Feel the furry fungi. Listen to the pines whispering to you. Reach out and touch the rough bark of the tree and you may just want to give it a hug. Admire the last fall colours contrasting with the deep greens of the spruces. Smell the fallen leaves. Just stop, close your eyes and breathe it all in. Feel your cares drop off like those autumn leaves. While the woods will be full of opportunities for many rich sensory experiences, mushroom expert George White and other knowledgeable natural-

ists will focus on fungi, with all their wide array of colours and textures – woolly, slimy, velvety, crisp or shaggy. They will not only help you find, identify and admire the various mushrooms but also explain how amazing mushrooms are and what an important role they play in determining what plants grow in the forest. That mushroom on your plate in future will get much more respect. Immersed in the woods, the quiet is soothing. But wait, there are birds and frogs singing, the trees are creaking and whispering to you. Some of these sounds of nature are so soothing that they are imitated by white noise machines to mask offensive sounds. To enhance the listening experience,

MMLT’s soundscaping expert Chad Clifford will provide opportunities to hear nature’s sounds amplified in new ways with enhanced audio recorders and headsets. Not only will you be encouraged to detect the differences between the smell of twigs of distinct trees, the soundscaping equipment will focus your attention on how firs sob and moan, ash trees hiss, beech trees rustle, some evergreens whistle, and then there is that strange animal sound that in fact is tree branches rubbing together. Soon you will not only be hugging trees but talking back to them! High Lonesome Nature Reserve is located in the Pakenham Hills. The 200-acre property is legally protected

forever by Mississippi Madawaska Land Trust. Registration for this journey of the senses begins at 9:30 a.m. with the guided outings leaving the trailhead at 10 a.m. and lasting approximately two hours. Bring your lunch and

gather after your tour to share what you experienced. Be sure to dress for the weather. A $10 donation to the land trust will go towards the maintenance of the property and its eight kilometres of trails and help us acquire other wilderness prop-

erties for the benefit of nature and your well-being. For more information and directions to High Lonesome Nature Reserve, visit www. or call 613-253-2722. Submitted by the Mississippi Madawaska Land Trust.

School Bus Safety Week set for Oct. 20 to 24 for both school boards News –  Student Transportation of Eastern Ontario (STEO), the transportation consortium for the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario (CDSBEO) and the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB), is joining other transportation consortiums and school transportation companies across Ontario, in celebrating the importance of school bus safety during School Bus Safety Week. In Ontario, more than 800,000 children and teenagers ride safely, in more than 18,000 school buses, each day. Studies show that school buses

are the safest method for transporting young people – up to 22 times safer than passenger cars. “Ensuring the safety of students as they enter and exit the bus is crucial,” said STEO general manager and chief administrative officer, Ron Cotnam. “We are training our bus drivers to be cautious, but we need help from parents and motorist to make sure they stop for school buses, as they load and unload children. “No issue is so urgent that motorists cannot wait for a school bus.” The law requires motorists to stop for a school bus anytime it has

stopped to load or unload. In Ontario, buses display red flashing lights, and a stop sign is extended from the side of the bus, to alert motorists to stop. Cotnam offers the following tips for students as they get on and off the bus: • Always remain in direct view of the bus driver; • Always cross in front of the bus, but only when the bus driver signals it is safe to do so; • Always follow the driver’s directions for how to cross the street; • Take ten giant steps back from

the curb while waiting for the bus, and ten steps away when exiting the bus; • Be alert to traffic and look both ways; • Never try to get anything left on the bus after exiting; • Never reach underneath the bus; and • Get to the bus stop in plenty of time. Bus contractors throughout the region will be conducting contests and promotions in conjunction with local schools in support of School Bus Safety Week, and student safety.

Police departments throughout the region will also be diligent in ensuring drivers are following all rules and laws. To obtain additional information on school bus safety, and promotions being conducted, parents and students can access STEO’s website at www. Student Transportation of Eastern Ontario operates approximately 800 school vehicles, which transport 35,000 students, across districts in eastern Ontario.

Upper Canada school board unveils My Family Room parent website News –  The Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) has announced a new secure website that will help the board inform parents of any crises at its schools and help parents keep their children on track with their studies. The new My Family Room web portal will act as a one-stop, single point of access to all electronic services provided to parents of UCDSB students, said Jeremy Hobbs, superintendent of human resources and operational services. The portal will serve as an urgent notification system. Instead of waiting for letters home about incidents such as lockdowns, the system will automatically inform parents of a lockdown and

that their children are safe and secure, said Hobbs. It will also allow parents to view their children’s transportation, address, phone, absence and health information and update critical contact information such as parent phone numbers or emails without having to go through their child’s school. “It’s all geared toward customer service, making it easier for parents to get the information they need and interact with us,” said Hobbs, who introduced the pilot project at the Oct. 8 board meeting. The portal is also designed to cut down on the amount of paper flowing back and forth between the school and parents, which can sometimes get lost.

“I think a lot of times what happens with students is that things are sent home in agendas or on slips of paper that don’t always make it home, not because students don’t intend to,  they just get lost in the hustle and bustle of all the other things a student must do,” he stated. The system will allow parents to see their children’s student calendar and keep track of notifications from their children’s teachers about homework, assignments and exams, helping them keep their children on track with their school work. “This will allow parents to access information in a timely manner that is easier for them so they can be engaged in their son’s or daughter’s learning in a more effective way,” Hobbs said. The site will allow parents to: • Receive phone calls, emails or text messages relating to their children such as absence notifications, school emergencies, bus cancellations and special events. • Customize their contact preferences to receive emergency notifications at one destination, such as a cell phone, while receiving non-emergency messages at another such as a home phone or email address. Parents will be given a secure account to access the system so they can change this information should they change phone numbers, or wish notifications in other ways such as text messages or emails. • View key contact information for their children’s school such as phone numbers and email addresses for principals, vice principals, and office staff. • View their children’s school calendar online including PD days, exam days and

other calendar items. Parents will be asked to visit their school in person to set up their account, which can be done in a matter of minutes, said Hobbs. Second vice-chair David McDonald praised the value of the system. “We are communicating from school-to-home and home-to-school on a regular basis and in an ever busier world the easier we can make it for parents and teachers to stay connected the better,” said McDonald. “And not only will we improve communication, we are allowing our parents to have insight into the work being assigned by a teacher and that means they don’t have to look for daily agendas,” he continued. “They can look at calendars and know when homework is due and tests are coming up, and then we’ve engaged the family into the learning environment of the school and have provided complete support around the success of our students.” Development of the system is complete and the board is piloting it at four schools within the Upper Canada District School Board including: Russell High School, Viscount Alexander Public School, Westminster Public School and East Front Public School. The pilot should be finished by midNovember, and then the board will proceed with a rollout across all of its schools, to be completed by late spring. The board has a series of additional features in the planning stages and will be releasing them over the coming two years. Submitted by the Upper Canada District School Board.

Rosa Annie Kwissa, nee Legge, widowed Bedford, was born June 7th, 1924 in England. She was the daughter of poor farm labourers, and spent her early years in a thatched cottage, the youngest of four girls. Her sisters Muriel, Mary and Kit predeceased her. At the age of 17 she went to war, and fought the German air force at Coventry in an epic battle during the Blitz. She was wounded when her anti aircraft gun was discharged amongst she and 11 other young girls, killing eight of her comrades. While searching bombed areas for survivors, she was helped up from a crater by King George VI. During this time she met and married her beloved Stanley Bedford, and left the army as an expectant mother. Stanley was killed in North Africa four months before the birth of their son Donald, and she returned home to care for her son and ailing father. She was a devoted care giver, and looked after her father for five years, before meeting and marrying Witold (Vic) Stanislav Kwissa, a Polish soldier who stayed in England after the war. They had two children, Richard and Vivienne. In 1956, they left England amid fears that the Cold War would bring nuclear war to Europe. Once in Canada, they lived in Ottawa, Twin Elm and Corkery. Soon after arriving in Canada, her husband’s PTSD took control of his life, and the resulting alcoholism and behaviors made her life extremely difficult. She and the three children were left isolated in a rural area with no transport, family or close friends. Finally Donald got his driving license and a vehicle, and the family had access to the outside world. Groceries, clothing and social contact became easier to get. Rosa got her driving license at age 54. She had worked as a cabinet maker and file clerk in an effort to make ends meet. Once she had her own vehicle, she worked at Bell Northern Research and Digital Equipment in the cafeteria. She never made much money, but she kept the bills paid despite her husband’s drinking, and as her children married and became independent, she was able to enjoy auction sales. She was always turning up with some “treasures” in her trunk. In the years to come, she became a doting and supportive grandmother to Tracy and Tobi, and then with the remarriage of her son, to Heath, Jerred and Sara. She never made a distinction between her grandkids, step grandkids and then the 10 great grandkids that followed. She was always generous and no one’s birthday was forgotten. Who will ever forget her payday visits with her grey hatchback filled with bags of groceries, and special treats for everyone, even those who were regular visitors to the house? Animal welfare was her passion, and she donated generously to many wildlife and pet shelter organizations. Once retired, she moved to Carleton Place. She became the family dog walker and frequented all the trails, parks and bush lots around town. Every dog that met her knew that her doggie purse carried special treats for them, regardless of their owner’s instructions. They were her social network, and she was well known and respected in the dog walking community. Rosa had a special relationship with her grandaughter, Tracy, and was a mother, mentor, role model and hero to her. Rosa and Tracy were kindred spirits and always had much to talk about, but were also happy to be in one another’s company enjoying a cuppa. When Tracy became pregnant at a young age, Rosa was supportive and helpful. She had remedies for Tracy’s aches and pains and swollen ankles and was always bringing treats to satisfy Tracy’s various cravings. She adored her first great-grandchild and spoiled Em as every child deserves to be by a grandparent. Em grew up in the warmth of her “GG’s” love and was secure in the knowledge that she was cherished. Later, when Tracy married, Rosa was kind and welcoming to her introverted husband. When Fletcher was born, Rosa was pleased to welcome another boy to the family and was sad to learn that she would not able to meet her third great-grandchild when Tracy and her family moved to the USA. Tracy missed her grandmother very much, and they both wrote and called weekly. Though they were far apart, their relationship remained strong. When Tracy left her abusive marriage, Rosa was there with a resolve that Tracy would not go through her divorce alone. Rosa’s unrelenting loyalty to her family was unmatched; Rosa was determined to do whatever she could to help her granddaughter and great-grandchildren. She was always the first person to offer encouragement and empathy to Tracy and her children. She led by example on how to be a good and kind person. GG was a person that Em, Fletcher and Megan looked up to and cherished. As the years went by, Rosa became more reliant on Tracy to help with her day to day tasks, but they always found a reason to laugh and lament at the tribulations of getting older. Rosa continued to be a source of guidance to Tracy and even during her last days, Rosa comforted Tracy, reassuring her and expressing her love and pride in her granddaughter. Tracy and her children miss their GG greatly, and her absence has left a void. Rosa was a person who believed in honouring her commitments, and she spent 42 years dealing with her husband Vic’s drinking, and it wasn’t until the last two years of his life, when cancer replaced his alcoholism, that his head and spirit cleared enough for him to realize what a fine woman he had married. It was too late to be able to share good times, but a good time to tidy up their life. However, the strain of caring for him, especially in the last years of constant palliative care, damaged Rosa’s health. She suffered from internal issues, and at age 70 she had yet another surgery, but this time it was a young Dr Oake who looked after her and gave her nearly 15 years of pain free living. Later on, lupus, arthritis, heart issues and then failing eyes and ears frustrated her, and yet she still had a perfectly clear mind with all the goals and desires for being active just out of reach. The lack of eyesight and hearing left her isolated, and despite the interaction of her immediate family and caring local services, it disappointed her that so many of the people who she had helped in the past simply stopped calling or dropping in. She was no longer in a position to supply cash, gifts, or services, and she felt somewhat dumbfounded to think that she had given so much, and yet it meant so little later on. On Aug 7, 2014, Rosa died in the Carleton Place Hospital. Many thanks to Dr. Spooner for her compassionate and knowledgeable care; the staff and nurses at the Carleton Place Hospital who made her feel safe and maintained her dignity right to the end of her life; to the excellent emergency and neurological services at the Ottawa Civic; the local branches of the CCAC for their counselling and physical therapy; and the staff from North Lanark Home Care who helped her in her home. In celebration of her life, donations to the Carleton Place Hospital or the animal shelter of your choice would be appreciated. Today her physical pains are over, and we are happy in knowing that she is walking freely and easily again, enjoying her sight and relishing the sounds and scents of long, outside walks, no doubt carrying that big dog walking purse, filled with cookies, treats, and of course a bowl and water for those hot doggies. Penny, Rusty, Johnny Ringo, Mike, Bessie, Holly, Buster, Candy, Frank, Penny, Riley, Belle, Luther, Reg, Sassy, Peggy-Sue, and Beau will enjoy being with her again. And we will never forget her. Bye GG. Enjoy your walk.

Hit comedy, Educating Rita, at Station Theatre for next two weeks Arts – Educating Rita, the stage play that won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy in 1980 plays at the Smiths Falls Station Theatre for two weeks starting Friday, Oct. 17. Written by Willy Russell, the comedy features two actors whom audiences will remember for their sparkling performances in Looking: Katharine Coleman and Michael Adams. The comedy follows the relationship between a young Liverpudlian working class hairdresser and Frank, a middleaged university lecturer, during the course of a year. Susan (who initially calls herself Rita), dissatisfied with the routine of her work and social life, seeks inner growth by signing up for and attending an Open University course in English Literature. The play opens as ‘Rita’ meets her tutor, Frank, for the first

time. Frank is a middleaged, alcoholic career academic who has taken on the tutorship to pay for his drink. The two have an immediate and profound effect on one another; Frank is impressed by Susan’s verve and earnestness and is forced to re-examine his attitudes and position in life; Susan finds Frank’s tutelage opens doors to a bohemian lifestyle and a new self-confidence. Educating Rita has its funny side for sure, but director Jamie Schoular sees something more emerge in the interaction between the two principals. “For me the most meaningful bit of dialogue occurs in act one, scene four when Frank says ‘When art and literature take the place of life itself, perhaps it is time to...’ and Rita interrupts with, ‘But it’s not takin’ the place of life,

it’s providin’ me with life.’” he says. “She then goes on to describe how, if you don’t know what you don’t know then life can seem pretty good, but if you are aware there can be something better, or in her words, other ‘choices’ your life could be so much more fulfilling.” “The thing about this play,”says Schoular, “that makes it a little different from some of the other plays that we have done is that the characters are real with real issues and real challenges. It is a play about the British class system, no doubt about that, but it transcends culture and present the audience with two people who could be from anywhere, even Lanark County, who are trying to overcome stereotypes and break free from the prejudices and preconceived notions that have held them and others like them back

from achieving their true potential.

Caldwell students learn important lesson during Fire Prevention Week Tara Gesner

News – Home smoke detectors can alert people to a fire before it spreads, giving everyone enough time to get out. Last week, Oct. 5 to 11, was Fire Prevention Week, “and every fire service in the province of Ontario was out promoting the importance of smoke alarms,” Matt Anderson said. Anderson is a fire prevention officer with Carleton Place’s Ocean Wave Fire Company (OWFC), and on Oct. 9 he attended Caldwell Street Public School to speak to youngsters about the importance of fire safety. “There are three things you must always remember when you hear a smoke alarm activated in your home,” he told a group of Grade 1 students. “Get down, get out and stay out!” Anderson explained people have only three minutes to exit a burning home and it’s within the first 30 seconds the smoke alarm activates. “Therefore, upon activation you now only have two minutes and 30 seconds to get out of your house before the smoke conditions become unlivable, before they become life threatening,” he said. Many hands went up when the firefighter asked who had a home escape plan. “Your family should have a special meeting spot,” Anderson stressed. “It can be across the street, at a neighbour’s house or under a light pole a few doors down. Go anywhere but right next to your home.” Using the analogy of watching television and deciding to change the channel


Matt Anderson, fire prevention officer with Carleton Place’s Ocean Wave Fire Company (OWFC), attended Caldwell Street Public School on Oct. 9 to speak to youngsters about the importance of fire safety. Inset: “Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives: Test Yours Every Month” is the 2014 Fire Prevention Week theme. but discovering the batteries in the remote are dead, Anderson warned, “never go over to the smoke alarm, take out the battery and put it in your remote.” “It’s not a very smart decision,” he continued. “If you go to sleep that night and there’s a fire in your home, you’ll have no protection. You’ll just continue to sleep.” According to the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services, smoke alarms can increase a person’s chance of surviving a fire by up to 50 per cent. Ontario law requires working

smoke alarms be located on every storey of a home and outside all sleeping areas. Anderson’s presentation included the Timon & Pumbaa Safety Smart: Smart About Fire video. From smoke alarms, fire escape plans and preventative measures such as not playing with matches, The Lion King’s Timon and Pumbaa reviewed their Safety Smart Checklist. Anderson made sure to list the firefighters’ bunker gear: pants, coat, helmet, balaclava (to protect ears from burning), gloves, boots, air pack

and breathing mask. “We also carry with us a radio, flashlight and tool... usually an axe or pry bar,” he said. “Add in a hose, that’s approximately 90 pounds of equipment.” Questions asked by the children included the number of fire trucks at the station and if the OWFC had a dog. The OWFC has five trucks: a ladder and equipment van, two pumpers and a small rescue truck that carries medical and auto extrication equipment. “We don’t have a companion dog,” Anderson said with a smile. Students heard one of the biggest dangers to a person in a fire is the smoke. “The smoke conditions become too much for our bodies to handle,” Anderson said. “Smoke is toxic, containing carcinogens.” When the OWFC trains, they use fake smoke. “We train two hours every week,” Anderson said. “Our fake smoke, which smells like maple syrup, stills gives us zero visibility, but we aren’t going to hurt ourselves.” Students were also given some important homework to complete last week. “When you go home tonight, after supper test the smoke alarms in your house,” Anderson said. “Talk about your home escape plan, and practice it.” Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives: Test Yours Every Month is the 2014 Fire Prevention Week theme. “Make sure you test smoke alarms monthly and change the batteries every six months,” Anderson said. “These devices are designed to work 24 hours a day, seven days a week – if you look after them.”

Dalgity said he had no problem having meetings with residents, with staff or a group of people. “I would welcome any conversations,” said Dalgity. “I am willing to talk to anyone anytime.” Levi said he talks to hundreds of people now on a regular basis and that would continue. “My office is always open and I always return my

calls,” said Levi.

Admission to Our Haunted Heritage is $5 per person and all proceeds benefit the CPBHS. Space is limited. “We will put out complimentary snacks,” Irwin said, “and Michael Gauthier of Freedom Photography will operate a haunted photo booth.” Photos are $10 each, with 50 per cent donated to the CPBHS. “It’s going to be a fun night and it’s a great way to learn about local history,” Irwin said. “We have plenty of spirits wandering around.” Audience members are invited to get up and share their own scary stories. “Come out and support your local museum,” Irwin said. The Carleton Place and

Beckwith Historical Heritage Museum is located at 267 Edmund St. and opened its doors in 1985. It is run by the CPBHS with assistance from the municipalities of Carleton Place and Beckwith. It was known as Victoria School Museum until its name change in 2011. The museum is housed within a heritage-designated building erected in 1872. The structure served as Carleton Place’s town hall and clink until 1879, and for the next nine decades it operated as Victoria School. For additional information about Our Haunted Heritage or the museum and CPBHS, contact Irwin at 613-253-7013 or

Business development Candidates were then asked what is the next business that is needed in town? Levi admitted it was hard to pick just one. “I don’t think we should pick and choose, we should be welcoming and easy to do business with,” said Levi. McLaughlin said the town needed accommodations. “There is no place to stay overnight,” said McLaughlin. Dalgity agreed that the town needed a hotel.

Vote Garry Dalgity

for Mayor of Mississippi Mills EXCELLENT LEADERSHIP SKILLS I have gleaned these leadership and management skills while I was the Head of a Production Planning Department, within the Department of National Defense, that was involved in the production of military maps for our Canadian Armed Forces. I have chaired all Committees of Council and at the present time, I am the Chair of the Committee of the Whole and Acting Mayor when the Mayor is out of the area. KNOWLEDGEABLE AND VERY EXPERIENCED IN MUNICIPAL BUSINESS AND PROTOCOL I have been a Councillor for a number of years both for the Town of Almonte before amalgamation and, at the present time, I am a sitting member of Council for the Town of Mississippi Mills. My knowledge and experience with Municipal Governance is a definite asset for anyone seeking the position of Mayor. DEVOTED TO THE COMMUNITY FOR MANY YEARS I have been involved in the Community, for many years, as a Director on the Board of the Almonte General Hospital, a Director on the Board of the Lanark County United Way, a Director on the Board of the Mills Community Support Corp., a Director on the Board of the Mississippi River Power Corp., the President of the Almonte Civitan Club for two terms, a member of the Royal Canadian Legion Br. 240 and over the years have been heavily involved, as the Chair, of many fund raising events that raised funds for much needed community infrastructure. HARDWORKING, RELIABLE AND IS ALWAYS WELL PREPARED WHEN TENDING TO THE BUSINESS OF THE MUNICIPALITY I approach every Council meeting fully prepared to do the business of the municipality in a businesslike manner and my attendance at these meetings has been excellent. I BELIEVE THAT THE USE OF COMMON SENSE, WHEN MAKING DECISIONS THAT AFFECT SO MANY PEOPLE, IS A VALUABLE ASSET The five questions that a member of Council should ask themselves when presented with a proposal are: Does the proposal make common sense and if implemented, will it be an asset to the community?, Does the proposal meet all legislation, regulations and guidelines? Does the proposal provide enough information to make an informative decision? Does the proposal fit within the town’s budget? Will this proposal require input from the residents and, if so, at what point in time does this occur in the decision making process? A member of Council who asks themselves these questions, before making a decision, will be a successful member of the team. I BELIEVE THAT ALL RESIDENTS ARE VERY IMPORTANT AND THEIR POINTS OF VIEW ON MUNICIPAL ISSUES ARE ALSO VERY IMPORTANT AND SHOULD BE RESPECTED Members of Council should never forget that they are elected to represent all of the residents of Mississippi Mills, urban and rural, and must never forget that the residents’ points of view are very important and must be respected. The Town of Mississippi Mills needs a leader with the leadership skills, the confidence and the experience that are required to lead a Council of rural and urban municipal representatives that will work as a cohesive team to discuss and resolve the many unique issues that are inherent to both the rural and urban areas and get the job done. I have those leadership skills, I have the confidence and I have the experience to lead a team that will work together and get the job done in the next four years.

Audible pedestrian signals to be in place this fall in Carleton Place By Tara Gesner

News – The following are issues discussed by Carleton Place council members during the physical environment and planning and protection committee meetings, held Oct. 7. Money allocated in the town’s 2014 budget for the Bridge Street pedestrian crossing project will now fund the installation of audible pedestrian signals (APS) at four of the municipality’s signalized intersections. “Materials needed for the pedestrian crossing are not available this year,” chief administrative officer (CAO) Paul Knowles said, “and the project will need to be carried forward to 2015.” On more than one occasion, Kory Earle, a member of the town’s accessibility committee and the past president of People First of Ontario, stressed the installation of APS was vital to the safety of Carleton Place citizens. Coun. Jerry Flynn echoed his concerns. “I would like to see this done sooner rather than later, and I would like to find the money someplace,” he said. Without sufficient visual information, people who are blind or visually impaired or deaf-blind rely on the sound or sense of traffic to identify a time when traffic has stopped and crossing the road is possible. Provincial legislation will eventually make implementation of APS mandatory.

The four municipally controlled signalized intersections are located at Bridge and Lake streets, Bridge and Emily streets, Coleman Street and Franktown Road, and Lansdowne Avenue and Moore Street. Knowles said the town’s traffic signal contractor has confirmed the required materials for the APS have been obtained. “They are also optimistic their schedule will accommodate the project this fall,” he added. Fire update Ocean Wave Fire Company (OWFC) chief Les Reynolds submitted his August report to members of Carleton Place council. Local firefighters answered the call to help hundreds suffering from Muscular Dystrophy (MD) on Aug. 23, holding their annual toll bridge (boot drive). “With the assistance of some of our retired members, they raised $7,100, which is very impressive for a community this size,” Reynolds said. MD is a term that refers to a group of muscle disorders in which the face, arms, legs, spine or heart muscles gradually shrink and weaken over time. The month’s 16 emergency calls were as follows: fire related (12), motor vehicle collision (two) and medical assist (two). OBC amended

The Ontario Building Code will be revised on Jan. 1, 2015 to permit the construction of wood frame buildings to a height of six stories, according to the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing. “We are starting to see more wood,” Coun. Louis Antonokas said, “and I’m assuming it’s related to cost.” Reynolds said the reasoning is twofold: price and heavy pressure from communities in the north where lumbering is a big part of the economy. “Engineered lumber is very strong, very light and cheaper, and it’s great until it burns,” he added. “It burns very quickly and very hot.” The Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs lobbied to ensure safety provisions were included if the amendment came about. “We requested sprinklers be mandatory in these buildings, but we didn’t get that,” Reynolds said. “However, provisions were included in regards to stairwells being constructed of noncombustible materials, and there is a requirement for roofs to be fire resistant.” Chair excuses himself For a portion of last week’s planning and protection committee meeting, Coun. Doug Black excused himself as chair. His removal followed a lengthy discussion relating to Bryant Cougle/ Brylin Construction and the recovery

of development costs. The agenda item (No. 125438) was a motion to receive and file. “I think I’ll call the question,” Black said. Local resident and developer Volunder (Wally) Thorbjornsson raised his hand to speak. “No, I don’t think I’ll take any questions from the floor,” Black said. Antonakos indicated he wanted to hear from Thorbjornsson, and moved a motion to permit him to do so, which

was seconded by Flynn. It carried 5-1. Black then stepped aside and Mayor Wendy LeBlanc assumed the chair. In an email received by the Canadian Gazette on Oct. 8, Black noted his position was successfully challenged and as a result, he removed myself for the remainder of the discussion. “To remain in the chair may have compromised the continued discussion,” he wrote. “I then returned to the chair after the council motion to receive and file was approved.”

Despite withdrawal from election, candidate’s name to remain on ballot Tara Gesner

News – Even though Carleton Place resident Brandon Armstrong, a candidate for councillor, announced his desire to withdraw from the 2014 municipal election, his name will remain on the ballot. Clerk Duncan Rogers explained, “It’s too late to remove his name from the ballot at this point in time,” as his withdrawal failed to meet the requirements of Section 36 of the Municipal Elections Act. The act mandates that, “a person may withdraw his or her nomination by filing a written withdrawal in the

clerk’s office, before 2 p.m. on nomination day…” Nomination day was Sept. 12. “He (Armstrong) did not do this,” Rogers said. Born and raised in Carleton Place, Armstrong, 29, pulled out of the election race on Sept. 22, citing family health matters. “Technically, he could (still) be elected,” Rogers said. If this actually happens, several scenarios are possible. “He could resign or refuse to take the Oath of Office,” Rogers said. “His seat would then be filled either by a by-election or by a selection of council.” Election day is Monday, Oct. 27

Rural Internet avoids disconnection Tiffany Lepack News – More than 11,000 rural residents in eastern Ontario have avoided losing their Internet service after an Industry Canada proposal suggested focusing on more urban areas. The proposal was originally going to force Internet providers like Xplornet Communications to give up their 3,500 MHz spectrum, which is being used to bring high-speed Internet services to its rural customers and transferred to urban customers. “Yesterday, the Minister of Industry released a statement regarding the 3,500 MHz spectrum consultation,” explained Xplornet Communications Inc. president Allison Lenehan. “Xplornet is delighted that the minister has clarified that spectrum licences properly in use for delivering Internet services to Canadians will not be taken away. As an Internet service provider dedicated to servicing rural Canadians, Xplornet shares the minister’s vision of ensuring that the 3,500 MHZ spectrum is deployed in the best interest of all Canadian

consumers and looks forward to finding solutions to improve rural Internet service through the consultation process.” At the Oct. 7 Mississippi Mills council meeting, councillors passed a motion to support the efforts of the Eastern Ontario Wardens’ Caucus and the Eastern Ontario Regional Network to modify the proposal. Both organizations, as well as the federal/provincial governments and private sector partners, have put in more than $12 million in capital infrastructure investments to improve service. “I’m sure council is aware because we have had Jim Pine here from the Eastern Ontario Regional Network do a couple of presentations with council about the millions of dollars we have put in to improve the service for high speed within eastern Ontario,” town chief administrative officer Diane Smithson told council. Mayor John Levi, who is also a member of the Lanark County council, told council the county was looking for support to oppose this as well.

Carleton Place mayor is ‘logical next step’ for Louis Antonakos Tara Gesner

strategy focused on succession planning; engaging the town’s youth – creating opportunities that allow them to participate, both in the present and the future; and improving the municipality’s environmental initiatives and protecting its “green” infrastructure. Antonakos has chaired the corporate services committee for the last four years, and he is a founding member of several committees, including the Carleton Place Environmental Advisory Committee and Carleton Place Drug Strategy Committee. “For seven years I was council’s representative on the local hospital’s board of trustees,” he said.

Currently, Antonakos is the vice president of the Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority Foundation and he has served on many other committees and boards during his eight years (20062014) as councillor. He considers himself approachable, fair-minded and visible. “I love socializing and talking to people and being an elected official has afforded me that,” Antonakos said. In his spare time the mayoral candidate enjoys listening to live music, riding his motorcycle and having friends over for dinner. “I’m a bit of a foodie,” Antonakos said.

When asked why the people of Carleton Place should vote for him over challenger Wendy LeBlanc, Antonakos replied: “I am better suited for the job. Carleton Place needs a leader who has all the skill sets to run a municipality.” “A good leader listens to all residents,” he added. “I believe I am that person. I do listen.” Antonakos has adopted the campaign slogan: “Building a community together.” For additional information, visit, call 613-2571459, email LouisForMayor@gmail. com or follow Louis Antonakos For Mayor on Facebook.

News – After two consecutive terms as councillor in Carleton Place, Louis Antonakos is running for mayor in the 2014 municipal election. “It’s the logical next step for me,” Antonakos told the Canadian Gazette, “and I believe with my experience and my commitment to staying involved and engaged in the community, I’m the right person for the job.” He added, “It’s time!” Antonakos was born and raised in Carleton Place; however, the family Louis Antonakos moved away for a short time, residing just outside Kinburn.

All are winners of friendly Great Veggie Grow-Off competition Jeff Mills, one of the driving forces behind the “friendly little competition,” added that he hopes to connect with local high school students so that they could help out and add to the haul of more than 650 lbs of potatoes. The competition began on May 1, International Workers Day, since “we wanted to pay homage to the farmers who put food on the table every day.” Already, this relatively little competition has attracted some big attention. The Facebook page promoting the United Nations’ World Food Day today (Thursday, Oct. 16), posted a notice about the tri-town competition for all the world to see.

Desmond Devoy News – Mississippi Mills has won the first-ever Great Veggie Grow-Off. The weigh in took place at the last Carleton Place Farmers’ Market of the season on Saturday, Oct. 11, as community gardens in Beckwith Township, Carleton Place and Mississippi Mills squared off to see whose gardens could get the most food to the tables of the most needy. Mississippi Mills delivered more than two-thirds of the 2,400 lbs collected, which does not include the 546.25 lbs of additional food that found its way on to the scales last weekend. Mississippi Mills Coun. Shaun McLaughlin represented his council at the event. “This is the time of year that we give thanks, and we give thanks for the food bank,” McLaughlin said. Carleton Place Mayor Wendy LeBlanc, representing her town council, carried on the Thanksgiving theme, noting that, in less than 48 hours time, many residents would be sitting down to a family dinner, and invoking a blessing to “bless this food and the hands that grow it,” a very appropriate wish for those who grew the food bank food, including the one beside St. Gregory Catholic School in Carleton Place, where she witnessed “that pride, (in) wanting to grow things to give to other people. They (the growers) were all really proud of what they had done.” While Mississippi Mills walked away with the “cup,” all of the participants walked away with a lot more. “Regardless of who wins this cup, we won,” said Karen Lomas, chair of the Lanark County Food Bank, based in Carleton Place. “This is absolutely wonderful,” she added as she beheld the produce about to be weighed before her. “The way the communities have come together has been phenomenal.”

According to Food Banks Canada, more than 800,000 Canadians use a food bank each month, eating up about 200 million pounds of food annually.

Outbreak hits close to home


pini o n – I’m not normally one to jump the gun. I can usually rationalize and play down situations but I have to admit, this Ebola outbreak is pretty scary. Of course, I was familiar with the virus. It’s a common topic on international news channels with major outbreaks occurring in parts of Africa, but it’s only when an aid worker came home from Liberia to Texas, that I sat up a little straighter. Here’s where I have the problem. I applaud the efforts by so many humanitarian aid workers in third world countries. It is something that I don’t think I could ever do. But when you’ve been in direct contact with people suffering from Ebola and you board a plane to come back to North America, shouldn’t you disclose where you’d been? Thomas Eric Duncan didn’t. He slipped by without divulging any information and it was only when he was back on US soil that he began to present symptoms. Where it gets even scarier for me is that when Duncan got very ill, he went to a Texas emergency room, told the nurse where he had been and still got turned away. No one should be refused medical treatment. I’m sure the hospital has been answering for that mistake. I feel for this man and his family, but I can’t help but wonder what the ripple effect of this may be. A Texas nurse has already tested positive with Ebola, most likely from contact with Duncan, but the incubation period for the disease is about 21 days. Texas isn’t that far away from us when you consider all the travelling we do. A patient from Ottawa arrived at the Ottawa Hospital’s general campus complaining of Ebola-like symptoms (that have since been ruled out) and

ASHLEY KULP The Usual Kulprit a Belleville man has been quarantined after he showed similar symptoms. These people are just a few kilometres from where we live. I recently watched some of the news footage with my mother, an emergency room nurse at a local hospital. She has had to deal with all sorts of infectious outbreaks, but nothing like Ebola. It was interesting to see the information through her eyes, as a health care professional who is forced to endure situations I can’t even imagine. As journalists, we may think our jobs are dangerous, but it’s nothing compared to what the men and women in our local hospitals do. I remember watching the 1995 movie Outbreak with Dustin Hoffman that dealt with the Ebola virus and a possible epidemic in the United States. It all seemed like it was in another world to me. At that time, I couldn’t comprehend that something like that could actually happen. But it can and it is. I don’t think the virus should stop people from living their lives and while there is no vaccine, it can successfully be treated if caught early enough. What I think we can learn from Thomas Eric Duncan is the importance of being truthful. He didn’t do himself or anyone he came into contact with since boarding the flight from Liberia any favours. This situation should make us sit up and take notice. We need stricter regulations when people are flying from certain countries. Our hospitals also need to put training exercises and plans in place in case of an Ebola outbreak.

Lifestyle – The Almonte waste sanitation ponds have been producing very good birds lately. Sept. 6, Jon Ruddy observed one Greater Whitefronted Goose, 18 Richardson’s Cackling Geese, and many Canada Geese. Some Northern Pintails, and both Green-winged (14) and Blue-winged (three) Teals were present.

Ray returned home to Pakenham, 23 Purple Finches were devouring seeds at his feeders. Cheryl Baxter and a friend drove to the Mill of Kintail via Bennies Corners Road, in Mississippi Mills. Five Sandhill Cranes were feeding in a field along this road, Oct. 1. The next day, the cranes were still there, plus Canada Geese, as well as a juvenile Bald Eagle. When Cheryl returned home, Purple Finches, Black-capped Chickadees, Red-breasted Nuthatches, and a Dark-eyed Junco were dining at her feeders, in Pakenham Ward. Also in this ward, Leslie Jefferies called to report two Ring-necked Pheasants that strutted across her laneway, Oct. 6. She was surprised to

see them. Some of these pheasants do occasionally live in the wild, however, talking with others, they could just as easily be escapees from a local breeder. Leslie has a Ruffed Grouse family that regularly lives on her property. Into Beckwith Township, from Carleton Place, a friend moved recently. Barbara is pleased to see the Northern Cardinals, Blue Jays, and American Goldfinches that come to their feeders. Also in Beckwith, Randy Marinelli heard a Purple Finch singing today, Oct. 7. Hummingbirds and American Kestrels have left his area, as they have in most of our area. The Ontario Field Ornithologists Convention in Ottawa, had more than 230 registrants. Total species observed for Sept. 26 to 28 was 152! All but one species were in the OttawaGatineau area, that one a Caspian Tern in Kingston area. In 2006, the OFO group tallied only 132 species.

New council salary approved for Mississippi Mills Tiffany Lepack

News – Mississippi Mills councillors are getting a small retroactive raise for 2014. Councillors passed the less than inflation increase at their Oct. 7 council meeting. For 2014, councillors will receive $15,281 and the mayor will receive $31,537. In comparison, for 2013 the councillors received $15,130 and the mayor was paid $31,226, a difference of $151. The remuneration bylaw was also discussed at the July 29 council meeting and it was

deferred so the numbers could be crunched further. Coun. Alex Gillis wanted to know if there was any urgency in passing the bylaw. “We did form a remuneration sub-committee which hasn’t met yet and this is just a rehash of what we get every year with a little bit of inflation added,” said Gillis. “We were to look at the per diems, meal allowance, which has been the same for years, will it ever change, and other aspects. I would like to see it deferred until sub-committee has a chance to met.” At the meeting in July, Gillis

stated that council should have an increase. At the time he said the rate was “absolutely ridiculous” compared to other municipalities’ pay such as Carleton Place. In 2013, Carleton Place councillors received $17,950 as an honorarium, the deputy mayor received $22,300 and the mayor was paid $35,911. These figures do not include their travel or meal expenses. Mississippi Mills chief administrative officer, Diane Smithson. informed council that this bylaw goes back to Jan. 1, 2014 and there is nothing preventing council to

meet once the new council has been elected to change the remuneration for 2015. She suggested that council not defer passing it. “I agree with bylaw. I think the people in the stands should know we are not here to grant ourselves a great big raise, this is just picking up retroactivity,” said Coun. Denzil Ferguson. Also included in the bylaw is a daily meal allowance of $75 (breakfast: $15, lunch: $20 and dinner: $40), travel expenses and a $3,500 budget for extraordinary expenses of the mayor.

AGH recruits chief of obstetrics and gynaecology News – Almonte General Hospital (AGH) board chair Paul Virgin is delighted to announce that the board of directors has appointed Dr. Bahaa Awwad as chief of obstetrics and gynaecology (Ob/Gyn), effective Dec. 15. “He will be a very valuable addition to our team,” Virgin said. Dr. Awwad is currently an Ob/ Gyn consultant in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. A graduate of the Cairo University Faculty of Medicine, Dr. Awwad did his Ob/Gyn Residency at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia from 1984 to

1988 and has practiced medicine in Egypt and Saudi Arabia as well as Canada. “I am looking forward to being part of the community,” said Dr. Awwad. “My practice will serve patients in both gynaecology and obstetrics.” Dr. Awwad’s office, which will open in December, will be located at 95 Spring Street, next to the Ottawa Valley Family Health Team office. Contact information for Dr. Awwad will be released when it is available. “Bahaa Awwad has a wealth of Ob/Gyn training and experience,”

said AGH chief of staff Dr. Michael Dolan. “Our obstetrics and gynaecology department will benefit greatly from his expertise.” AGH has also recruited two additional physicians for the Ob/Gyn department. “Effective immediately, Dr. Enobong Ekong and Dr. David Caloia have joined the hospital’s medical staff,” said AGH president and chief executive officer Mary Wilson Trider. “Both physicians are accepting new obstetrics and gynaecology patients. Anyone wishing to see either Dr. Ekong or

Dr. Caloia can arrange for a referral through their family physician.” Dr. Ekong is a graduate of Queen’s University Medical School (with distinction) and of the Ob/ Gyn residency program at the University of Saskatchewan. Her office is at 95 Spring Street. Dr. Caloia is a graduate of the University of Toronto’s Medical School and Ob/Gyn residency program. He has significant experience in global health as well as in Canadian clinical practice. Dr. Caloia is working out of the Family Health Team offices.

LETTER From page 3

She took me up on the invitation and drove over from New York. She was completely taken with this group and the high caliber of show they put on. She was most moved by the sincere and heartfelt desire of this group to raise badly needed funds to support many of our local charities. My friend plans to make that drive whenever possible to support their upcoming events and cause again. One never knows when you may be in need yourself. Life can change in the blink of an eye. Without the selfless work from groups such


as these there would be no funds to help those who are down in their luck. We are so very fortunate to have them care so deeply and do so much for folks in our areas. I would like to say thank you to Gender Illusions for being a very compassionate, caring group and for giving so much of themselves to benefit others. This was an outstanding evening of laughter, raw emotion and people coming together. The desire and sincerity of this group could never be questioned as they do it from the heart.

Accreditation – a quality improvement opportunity for AGH From October 27 to 29, three surveyors from Accreditation Canada will be visiting Almonte General Hospital and Fairview Manor (AGH/FVM). Accreditation is a voluntary process that provides health care organizations with an Mary Wilson Trider external peer review based on standards of excellence. It is administered by Accreditation Canada, an independent, not-forprofit organization that has been working with health service organizations across Canada and around the world since 1958. Accreditation standards assess governance, risk management, leadership, infection prevention and medication management, as well as 2 services delivered across the organization. Patient safety is an integral component of the

Accreditation program. As a member of Accreditation Canada, the Board of Directors, staff and physicians are pleased to have this opportunity to learn how to improve what we are doing in order to provide the best possible care and service to our patients and residents. We are also pleased to have an opportunity to showcase the things we are proud of, such as our renovated Central Sterile Reprocessing department, funded entirely by donations from the community, our excellent patient satisfaction results, beautiful facilities and patient safety initiatives. Under the guidance of Rachel Ozer and Susan Blakeney, who have shared the role of Accreditation Lead, the staff and physicians have worked very hard to prepare for the upcoming survey. I thank them all for their dedication and commitment – and for their strong desire to 3 individually and collectively do their best to

represent the organization we are all proud of. Patricia Somers, Cathie Badeau and Annette Snow will be the Accreditation Canada surveyors. They are experienced health care professionals who have received in-depth training on standards and quality improvement. In addition to speaking with staff, physicians and volunteers, they will be approaching some of our patients, residents, families and visitors to ask about their experiences at the Hospital and Manor. We encourage everyone to participate, but no one is obligated to do so. During the survey it will be “business as usual” here at AGH/FVM. Please join us in welcoming our visitors from Accreditation Canada as we continue our quality journey. Mary Wilson Trider is President and CEO of Almonte General Hospital and Fairview Manor.

to all and no harm to any area before I can support something that will change our community.” Torrance said she stands firmly in the middle of the river; she loves the idea of hydroelectricity but also says council has worked hard to protect the river that no longer provides employment, but recreational beauty and “art in our ears, when we pass by.” “How are we going to get out of this? I have ready every single expert opinion on both sides and I’m just as confused as probably lots of you are. What is the truth?” said Torrance. “I don’t know what the truth is, I’m not one of those experts but I am willing to listen to experts and I want to know how much control the town has given up and how much could they take back.” Rising taxes The second biggest issue of the night was the increasing taxes in Mississippi Mills, which have gone up by seven

per cent or more in the last four years. Minnille said the key to keeping property taxes down is increasing development in the industrial park. “We need to keep taxes in line with inflation, seven or ten per cent is way too high,” said Minnille. Cameron said the question was increasing revenue or decreasing spending. He thinks the town needs a dedicated group to attract more industrial and commercial development. Gillis admitted that taxes are too high and thinks the town needs a comprehensive review early in the new term for longterm financial projects. Torrance also said she is committed to having more industrial and commercial development as well and that taxes are too high. “We need to see the things we need and what we want. We need to think long and hard because maybe we can do without for a few years and get the house in order,” said Torrance.

residents and Enerdu.” Gillis stated this issue highjacked the election campaign and he does not support the current project either. “The powerhouse is simply too big and it should not be allowed in the river especially by the falls and beside the river walk and our citizens just don’t want it,” said Gillis. “There may be a business case for a generating station but there is not a business case on the adverse affects on the downtown and the quality of life.” Gillis also noted that the project cannot really be stopped if all approval processes are achieved. Cameron called Enerdu the largest single issue in the community in the last 60 years and that it is not a simple issue. “I did not support the project the way it stood when it was presented to council,” Cameron said. “Unless the project can be shown to have no harm on the community there must be guarantees, signed, sealed and made public…there must be benefits


News – The Almonte Old Town Hall (AOTH) was packed on Oct. 9 as concerned residents listened to the views and promises of candidates for the upcoming municipal election on Oct. 27. The Mississippi mayoral candidates: John Levi, Shaun McLaughlin and Garry Dalgity (see separate article on mayoral debate) and the Almonte ward candidates: Bernard Cameron, Rick Minnille, Jill McCubbin, Janet Duncan, Alex Gillis and Jane Torrance hit the stage hosted by Take Young People Seriously Youth centre. The maximum occupancy for the AOTH is 290 people; organizers implemented a ticket system to keep track of the numbers and Mississippi Mills fire chief Pascal Meunier was also there to watch the numbers. There was such a large crowd, in fact, that organizers set up an overflow room with audio on the second floor. The meeting was moderated by Janet Duncan who welcomed six questions from the floor for the councillors on: council size (see next week’s issue for views from Almonte, Pakenham and Ramsay Ward and mayoral candidates), turning the railway track into a trail, rising taxes, green space in new developments, how to attract new businesses and the last question of the night was the one on everyone’s minds: the Enerdu project. Art Solomon said he couldn’t believe candidates hadn’t been asked this question so late in the night. “To all candidates: Where do you stand on Enerdu and if you are elected what are you going to do about it?” asked Solomon to a loud round of applause. Minnille was the first to answer and told the crowd that he supports the provincial government. “Would I put the town in jeopardy by not allowing a company to build, what could we do? Could we deny the building permit to them? We would be sued and the community would suffer,” said Minnille. “Can we work with this group and get whatever we can that is best for the town out of it, I hope so. A project that is approved by two other different levels of government for us to step in and say you can’t do it would surely end up in a lawsuit and would be detrimental to all of Mississippi Mills.” McCubbin came right out and said that she did not support the project in its current form. “I remain unconvinced that our town, residents and business owners benefit in anyway from Enerdu’s expansion. I would like to see proof from Enerdu that they will have a positive impact on the community and be sustainable before it is even begun,” said McCubbin. “I don’t think that’s too much to ask of them and I would like to see meaningful consultation between the town and Enerdu and

Avid community volunteer seeks council position in Beckwith News – You might say politics is in Joy Hodgkinson’s blood. The Beckwith resident’s mother was the youngest person ever to be elected to the Winnipeg school board and her grandfather was John Queen, a longtime former mayor of Winnipeg. To that end, Hodgkinson threw her hat in the ring this summer to try for a seat on the Township of Beckwith council. “I was brought up in a political family, so politics was part of our fabric,” she explained. “…I haven’t been on council before but I have a lot of experience.” However, Hodgkinson is no stranger to the community, having resided in the township since 1982. A music teacher and president of the Carleton Place and Beckwith Music Society, she runs a homebased business offering piano and music lessons from her home and she

and husband John are also avid volunteers. She has served on both the recreation and heritage committee in Beckwith and is credited with establishing the township’s newsletter, The Beckwith Beaver. Along with a group of interested citizens, she also helped bring the current Beckwith Public School to fruition. “I have a great interest in the community and I’ve done a great many things,” Hodgkinson said. “I also sat on the economic development committee and helped start the first business directory in the community.” “…I haven’t been on council before but I have a lot of experience in running things and a lot of experience in creating new events and experience in this township,” she continued. “I have a good idea of how the township has been functioning and I would like the opportunity to be making some decisions on how the township is going

for new residents about why they came to Beckwith,” she stated. “We need to encourage (new residents) to participate.” A great believer in education, Hodgkinson said night classes also bring people in the community together and suggests initiatives such as cooking classes for recently bereaved men or other types of workshops as something she would like to see. Praising Beckwith for being “progressive and forward thinking”, Hodgkinson said growth has to be managed properly. In this area, she believes better use could be made of the township’s economic development committee. “I’d like to see more businesses encouraged to come to Beckwith. It’s not an easy thing to do, I understand that. Beckwith has always been supportive of home-based businesses…but we could do something to encourage


those businesses in the commercial area,” Hodgkinson explained, stating that having a building where home-based businesses can rent office space might be beneficial. If she becomes councillor, Hodgkinson promises to be transparent and listen to what residents

Community – Finders Keepers Craft Show, Carleton Place’s one-of-a-kindfind trunk show is coming back to the Carleton Place Canoe Club for its second annual show on Nov. 30. Finders Keepers is a Carleton Place original – a unique spin on the traditional craft show where vendors display their high quality handmade goods in vintage trunks or suitcases. It is a popular concept in Europe that allows newcomers to craft shows a chance to dip their toes in the water, small scale producers a budget-friendly foray into high-end craft shows, and gives seasoned vendors a unique event to showcase their goods or launch a new product. Monika Henry, owner of Four&Twenty Blackbirds, a small textile business in Carleton Place, is looking forward to building on the success of last autumn’s show by bringing it back again for the 2014 holiday season. The wide array of artists and their oneof-a-kind items ensures show-goers won’t leave empty-handed. Finders Keepers is also looking for sponsors to make this year’s show better than ever. Find out how your business name can be front and centre in ads and promotions leading up to the show, by contacting Monika through the show’s website or Facebook page.

another area she’d like to see explored. “We don’t have much of that (food sustainability programs) provincially or federally and recently talking to people at the Lanark County Harvest Festival, they are disenchanted and I’d like to see us meet with some local producers and see if something can be done,” she said. “…There is great concern about the food chain and what we’re eating and our children are eating.” With many new homes popping up in Beckwith and families moving in and commuting to Ottawa, Hodgkinson said that often new residents don’t know what the township can offer. She’d like to see a stronger focus on welcome packages for newcomers. “We do have a welcome package, but I believe it relies on new residents to self-identify themselves… it would be helpful to have a voluntary questionnaire

Fire association motion causes temperature to rise during committee meeting Tiffany Lepack

News – It was a fiery discussion on the waiving of fees for the Eastern Ontario Firefighters’ Association (EOFA) Games over the summer that resulted in one councillor storming out of a meeting Oct. 7. Fire chief Pascal Meunier submitted a request to Mississippi Mills Committee of the Whole to waive the $1,396 rental fee for the Stewart Community Centre in Pakenham. Coun. Denzil Ferguson stated it was nothing more than an in-out ledger change. “I know it’s going in between departments, it’s within Mississippi Mills and I think it’s just something we should be

doing,” said Ferguson. There was much discussion on whether the Games were organized as a department of the town or the association. Chief administrative officer Diane Smithson told the committee that it was the Mississippi Mills Department association who organized the event and not the department itself. “(They are) arms length from the firefighters that make up the department, it wasn’t station one of the Mississippi Mills Fire Department it was the association, they are essential the firefighters,” said Smithson. Coun. Bernard Cameron agreed it should be in and out but that they had to be careful when other community groups also use town facilities. Coun. Val Wilkinson agreed and said

this shouldn’t affect the recreation department. “I’m slightly uncomfortable with it, it is brilliant what they did,” said Wilkinson. “I like things to look the same for everyone.” Coun. Alex Gillis was also concerned with how it would affect the recreation department. “Is this a paper transaction or is the department losing money? Will he have $1,400 less in revenue?” asked Gillis. Calvin Murphy, recreation director for the town, said the only financial implication for his department would be the need to absorb the staff cost. Mayor John Levi reminded those around the table that there is always a question as to who deserves it. “We had 200 to 300 people in our

community for the weekend. It’s economic development,” said Levi. “We don’t do it very often, it’s a great event for our community and it’s been done before.” Coun. Rick Minnille thought council was trying to be too fair. “It’s our own fire department, they had a provincial event that brought people into our community. We don’t pay for our Christmas dinner, I think we are beating around the bush,” said Minnille. “Just give it to them for free and forget about it. Holy smokes.” Minnille then asked for a vote to be called on the issue as the debate continued. “I spoke to the past fire chief about how other communities dealt with this and he said the town always paid for

the facilities,” said Coun. Gary Dalgity, who is also the chair of Committee of the Whole. Minnille then asked two or three more times to just call the vote, before he and Dalgity entered into a heated exchange. “I am running this meeting Mr. Minnille.” “No you are not running the meeting,” replied Minnille. “If you don’t like it you can leave!” stated Dalgity. “How can you say you are running the meeting when you are letting people talk over and around four times,” said Minnille as he gathered up his papers and left the meeting. The motion to waive the $1,396 rental fee for the EOFA was then passed.

Council candidate wants to ensure Beckwith keeps rural roots Ashley Kulp

News – Having lived in Beckwith Township for 35 years, Evelyn Campbell is looking to help shape its growth from behind the council table. Campbell is running for councillor in the township for the first time after filing her papers Sept. 5. She and husband Reggie make their home on Glenashton Road and have raised two children in the community. They also have two grandchildren. “We enjoy living in the township and I’m interested in where my tax dollars are spent and on what,” she

said when asked her reason for running. “I am also interested in keeping the township’s rural roots while watching it grow.” Though she works at an Industry Canada Agency currently, Campbell spent many years at the Balderson Cheese Store on Highway 7 in Carleton Place as well as the automotive service counter at Canadian Tire. If elected, she’d like to see more efforts be put into safety, accessibility and roads, “whether it be buildings, group mailboxes, or the trails. “I’d like drinking water and washrooms installed at the dome in Beckwith Park if the township is going to continue to rent it

out,” Campbell added. She stressed that maintaining the township’s infrastructure will be key to sustaining and managing growth in the next five to 10 years. “We have a great township. You could say that you live in the country but you’re really only minutes from the city or surrounding town limits,” she said. “As the population of the township grows, I feel that maintaining the roads, whether they be gravel, surface treatment or paved, might be a challenge as we will have more traffic. Also, I feel that the Beckwith Public School will be a topic in the near future with so many young families settling in

Evelyn Campbell

Beckwith Township.” Campbell said it’s “time for a change” and that she can provide a fresh face and voice on council. She describes herself as trustworthy, accountable, respectful and willing to take on new tasks. Her experience in customer service would also be an asset, she said. “...I have worked with the public since I was 14 and at least 20 of those years were in customer service. So I’ve learned to listen to the needs of the public,” Campbell noted. “I know there is a lot to learn and I have lots of questions to be answered. I believe in fairness and equal opportunity. I’m looking forward to the challenge.”

Incumbent councillor hopes to keep seat around Carleton Place council table

Doug Black advocate for financial responsibility and wants to foster economic growth through collaboration, not only with town staff but also stakeholders within the community. “As an experienced councillor, I want to demonstrate leadership to establish an in-house four-year strategic work plan that fosters further collaboration between the town’s economic development co-ordinator (Jasmin Ralph), town staff, the BIA (Business Improvement Association), the Chamber of Commerce and residents in a creative manner to best promote Carleton Place’s brand and identity within eastern Ontario,” he said. “We also need to collaborate with stakeholders that drive economic growth,” Black continued. “We have made progress both in commercial and residential growth but must reduce the tax burden on resi-

“With growth comes added obligations to ensure a modern infrastructure is maintained. The demand for future capital spending must be properly managed while ensuring value for the taxpayers is optimized,” Black explained, adding that he is an advocate of ensuring retail and employment lands are within walking distance for residents. “For example, our remaining 12 acres of employment land on Hooper Street will soon be surrounded by hundreds of new homes. It is my vision and hope that these residents will be able to walk to their place of employment,” he stated. Growth also impacts the environment and Black said 50 acres has been designated to natural environment by council and he served as the lead on the Stormceptor infrastructure in the town which led to the establishment of a 10-year plan to treat municipal stormwater runoff and discharge before it goes into the Mississippi River. With a campaign slogan of ‘Together, we can make Carleton Place the best it can be,” Black said the community is a special place with so much potential and he wants a hand in realizing that. “Carleton Place is my home. And it has been for most of my life. I will continue to listen to the community and leverage my experience and passion to make Carleton Place the best that it can be,” he remarked.

Mississippi Mills approves reduction of fees for new development Tiffany Lepack

News – The word ‘precedent’ was on the lips of many Mississippi Mills councillors after council approved a reduction of the development securities for the Orchard View Retirement Facility to a maximum of $180,000. The decision was made during a special council meeting on Thursday, Oct. 2. The original development security fee, which is financial insurance to ensure the project on town property (curbs, landscaping etc.) is completed to the town’s satisfaction, was $551,145; a difference

of $371,145. The town normally asks for 50 per cent of the work to be completed and the approved reduction amounts to 4.5 per cent of what will be done. “This is absolutely too drastic of a reduction…I don’t see any rationale for that drastic of a reduction,” said Coun. John Edwards. “What precedent does this set?” Edwards suggested to reduce the securities to 25 per cent of the project would be in a better range, an amendment that was defeated. “We should do what we can to ensure the project can go ahead properly,” said Coun. Bernard Cameron. “This is

brand new, there is nothing of this size in the community, with any negotiation there is give and take on both sides…the word precedent, I wish it becomes a precedent and we have three or four-hundred-plus units coming into the community. It would be a welcomed precedent.” The planned retirement facility on 219 Patterson Street includes 120 rooms, with dementia care and medical services, a yoga studio, foot care, massage therapy and more. The current development fees assessed by the town are $435,917 including $337,849 in development charges and $103,214 in building permit fees.

Coun. Garry Dalgity said council needed to look at the long-term benefits. “We have to do something if we can assist them,” said Dalgity. Developer Joe Princiotta was pleased that the council approved the reduction. “I’m happy, it was give and take,” said Princiotta. “We didn’t dispute the development fess, but the securities.” Princiotta says the building should be completed in 14 to 18 months. The final decision was carried 7-2 in a recorded vote. Councillors Val Wilkinson and Edwards voted against the motion.

News – Giving back to his community and promoting the town he loves are two reasons incumbent Carleton Place councillor Doug Black hopes to retain his council seat at the end of the month. The current councillor, who lives in Carleton Place with his wife and raised two sons in the community, is no stranger to local politics, having served on council from 1980 to 1985 as well. “…Serving as councillor has allowed me to support and give back to my community, meet and listen to the great residents of Carleton Place and promote the town I love,” he said, adding that his 30 years of experience in the private sector in sales is also an asset. Filing his nomination papers in the summer, Black said he is seeking another term so that he can “really dig in and get things done,” which includes a longterm plan for Carleton Place. “Our community continues to grow and transform and needs a long-term vision, which I can contribute to,” he stated. “My past work on the (Carleton Place) canoe club, the first daycare centre in Carleton Place or my more recent work on the Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority, showed me I want to keep going.” Bringing what he calls a practical philosophy to the council table, Black said that if elected he will continue to

dents by growing our industrial tax base. We must continue to ensure we remain investmentready for pending growth opportunities in all our existing and new employment lands.” Describing himself as passionate, determined and motivated, Black is also focused on succession planning to establish a guideline for when senior staff members with the town decide to retire. “I will provide stability through the sharing of my municipal knowledge and experience to support the critical transition and succession planning as existing senior management of the town are approaching retirement,” Black said. Another area close to his heart is the issue of seniors’ housing, something he has championed during his current term on council. “…I spearheaded the partnership with Mills Community Support Corporation to work on senior citizen housing initiatives,” he stated. “I started this work in the first term and work needs to continue through the next term.” While Black said seniors’ housing is the responsibility of the provincial government, it’s important that Carleton Place puts a plan in place to support new initiatives. Over the next five to 10 years, Black hopes Carleton Place becomes a model for the province in growth, environment and community pride. But managing growth properly is also important.

Canadians serve up two wins and a loss over Thanksgiving weekend Staff

Sports – The Carleton Place Canadians were thankful for the two wins they received over the Cornwall Colts last week, but not so much for the loss handed to them by the Hawkesbury Hawks on Oct. 10. With a 4-1 win over the Colts at home in a Thanksgiving Monday afternoon match-up, the Canadians maintain their hold atop the Robinson Division in the Central Canada Hockey League (CCHL), over the second-place Colts. With 16 wins and four losses, the Canadians have racked up 32 points so far this season which is also good enough to make them league leaders. On Monday afternoon, all that turkey may have gotten to both teams as the first period between the Colts and Canadians was scoreless. No penalties were handed out either. At 4:18 of the second, Carle-

ton Place got on the board first with a goal from Jordan Larson, assisted by Andy Sturtz and Stephen Baylis. Cornwall answered back with their own at 11:10, ending the period tied at 1. The Canadians set the tone for the third when, at 2:47, Alex Vala, assisted by Nicolas Mucci and Connor Merkley, scored what would be the eventual game winner for the team. Wesley Baker, on a powerplay, from Baylis and Willie Brooks; and Tyson Stewart, from Craig Pefley and Vala, added two more insurance goals to win the game, 4-1. The Canadians got to Cornwall in the third, who racked up five two-minute infractions, along with a 10-minute misconduct. The Canadians had two minors in the period. The win went to Adrian Clark, who played a near perfect game, seeing 16 shots and saving 15. The Canadians had

27 shots on goal. Carleton Place 2, Hawkesbury 4 The Canadians travelled to the Robert Hartley Sports Complex in Hawkesbury Oct. 10 to take on the Hawks. Hawkesbury drew first blood on a power play at 2:37 of the first period while the Canadians’ Bryce VanHorn was serving two minutes for an ineligible player penalty. The score remained 1-0 as the second period began with the Hawks adding another goal at 2:26. The Canadians answered with one of their own from Andy Sturtz on a power play. It was assisted by Willie Brooks and Craig Pefley. Both teams spent more time in the penalty box than on the ice in the second period, with Hawkesbury’s Nicholas Centauro tangling with Canadians captain Stephen Baylis to start the period. They each received game misconducts for fighting. Hawkesbury added another

goal at the opening to the third, with Carleton Place only managing to add their second goal of the game from Andrew Dodson, assisted by Tyson Stewart and Adam Lloyd, at 10:28. Another goal by the Hawks, ended the game 4-2.

Cornwall hit the scoreboard first at 1:02 of the first, but the Canadians answered back quickly with their own from Stephen Baylis, assisted by Devin Campbell and AJ Klein, at 4:34. Entering the second, tied 1-1, the period was scoreless, until 3:07 of the third, when Klein got Carleton Place 2, Cornwall 1 a goal, assisted by Tyson StewThe Canadians were in Corn- art and Nicolas Mucci. That was wall for their first match-up all the Canadians needed to put against the Colts on Oct. 9. away the 2-1 win.

Adrian Clark had the win, facing 34 shots in the game. The Canadians had 18 shots on goal. Upcoming games The Canadians have a bit of a break this week until Friday evening when they head to Kemptville to take on the 73’s. Game time is 7:30 p.m. They close the week out by welcoming the 73’s to their home turf Sunday, Oct. 19 at 3 p.m.

Canadians ready to launch minor hockey player, team of the month program Tara Gesner

Sports – The Carleton Place Junior A Canadians hockey club is looking to strengthen its ties with Carleton Place Minor Hockey (CPMH) by way of a forthcoming Player of the Month/Team of the Month program. The initiative, which is sponsored by Carleton Place businessman Schuyleur Seccaspina, puts the spotlight on minor hockey house players and teams – Novice, Atom and Pee Wee levels. Jason Clarke, owner and head coach of the Canadians, is excited about the venture, according to a media communiqué. “We are looking forward to this program,” he said. “We always aim to do the right things in the community and we think this is another step in that direction.” Seccaspina of Vittorio Automotive Group played both minor and Junior B hockey in Carleton Place. “Schuyleur’s a veteran hockey player,” Jack Denovan said, “and his involvement in this initiative is just awesome.”

Denovan is director minor hockey liaison with the Canadians. Averaging close to 400 fans, Carleton Place’s Junior A team plays in the region of 30 home games during the regular Central Canada Hockey League (CCHL) season. By means of the hockey club’s new program, kids named Player of the Month receive free admission for themselves and their family to a Canadians game and before heading to the Neelin Street Community Centre they will be taken out for something to eat at a restaurant in town. The Team of the Month gets free admission to a Canadians game, with each player receiving a complimentary box of popcorn and beverage, as well as public recognition through the arena’s PA system. “This new initiative is pretty cool for the kids,” Denovan said. CPMH president Paul Ross noted there are 13 minor hockey house teams: five Novice, four Atom and four Pee Wee. “It might be tight with only one team per month,” he said. “We may need to do two teams per month.” “Schuyleur and I are going on re-

cord,” Denovan said. “I can tell you right now we will guarantee every team gets to go at least once.” CPMH representatives will choose players and teams receiving special recognition. “We haven’t figured out our selection plan just yet, but to make it fair we are thinking very random,” Ross said. Seccaspina’s late father Angelo owned the former Carleton Place Kings Junior B hockey team, selling the club to Jason Clarke, the current owner and head coach of the Canadians. “Any partnership with Jason is a great partnership, and hockey is hockey in Carleton Place,” Ross said.

“We all need to stick together,” he added, “and it’s great that Jason is giving back to us.” “Last year I was looking at doing something for underprivileged kids,” Seccaspina said. “At first I thought about purchasing hockey equipment, but Canadian Tire has its Jumpstart program.” It wasn’t until the businessman met up with Clarke this summer that the Player of the Month/Team of the Month program came to be and Denovan was brought on board to run with it. “I think it’s a big deal,” Seccaspina said. He remembered being a child and

looking up to the town’s Junior B athletes. Through hockey, youngsters develop sportsmanship, teamwork and discipline, which are transferred to other areas of their life. The Canadians are coming off an outstanding 2013-2014 season, winning the Central Canada Hockey League and Eastern Canadian championships, and finishing second to the Yorkton (Saskatchewan) Terriers at the RBC Cup (nationals). This is the inaugural year for the Player of the Month/Team of the Month program. “Discussion has already taken place about expanding the initiative to include more teams,” Denovan said.


The Carleton Place Junior A Canadians hockey club rolled out a new community program on Oct. 8, at the Neelin Street Community Centre. Above, from left: Canadians director minor hockey liaison, Jack Denovan, Schuyleur Seccaspina and minor hockey president Paul Ross.

Thunder welcome United Way Lanark County to Oct. 18 game in Almonte Tiffany Lepack

Sports – The Almonte Thunder and United Way Lanark County (UWLC) are teaming together to support the community. The Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League team will welcome a UWLC board member to drop the puck at its game in Almonte on Saturday, Oct. 18 versus the Stittsville Royals at 7:30 p.m. “I feel that it is important for the team to help give back to the community,” said team owner Jeff Hawkins. The UWLC will have a table set up

in the lobby to collect donations and sell raffle tickets for the Champagne Flights, Dinners and Stays contest. The main prize is a flight for two on a private plane over Lanark County down to Kingston and back, including a tour of the Classic Wings Private Museum at the Smiths Falls Airport in Montague Township. Second place prize includes stays at local B&Bs, and the third place prize is dinner for two at various restaurants in the county. Tickets cost $10 and are on sale until the end of December. For more information on this year’s campaign, visit Thanksgiving weekend

The Thunder came away from the turkey weekend with a win and a loss. On Friday, Oct. 10, they travelled to Gatineau to face the Mustangs and fell 4-2. “I thought overall we played very well, for a first year player going to Gatineau it’s a little bit of an adjustment,” said head coach Bill White. Almonte was winning after the second frame 2-1 with goals from Jacob Ramalho assisted by Quinn Gordon and Nick Villeneuve on the power play and then Garrett Nichol scored short handed at 16:01 assisted by Alex Szabo. The Thunder couldn’t hold on to the lead as the Mustangs scored three unan-

swered goals in the third period. “One was empty net, we had a couple of mistakes and it cost us,” said White. “We had lots of chances and competed hard.” On Saturday night, the Thunder hosted the Metcalfe Jets and defeated them 4-1. “We played a very good Metcalfe team and we played very well, it was a skating game,” said White. “We made a few changes with the lines and got some good production. We played a very good sound game, we defended well and it was a step forward for sure.” Newly acquired Thunder player Blair Barr had two goals.




“He’s still adjusting and it will take some time but it’s getting better,” said White. “We’ve made so many changes it will take some time for everyone to get comfortable.” This weekend the Thunder travel to Shawville on Friday night at 8 p.m. and on Saturday the Thunder host the Stittsville Royals at 7:30 p.m. “Shawville is a very good team and it will be a very good test for us,” said White. “Stittsville also has a good team, there are no easy games as there are a lot of good teams in the league this year, we just have to play the best we can.”






Sports – Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute hosted the senior boys volleyball tournament on Oct. 8 with Notre Dame splitting all four games they played, including over Almonte and District High School, Perth and District Collegiate Institute and Carleton Place High School.

Sports – “Almonte Lawn Bowling Club (ALBC) has made a significant leap forward as an excellent venue for lawn bowling in eastern Ontario,” stated Guy Chaput, as he addressed the packed room for the annual meeting of the club, held Wednesday, Sept. 24 at the club facilities in Almonte. “Through vigorous marketing and promotion, the club experienced a large growth in membership in 2014 indicating ALBC has a great product to offer to the community,” said Chaput. Chaput, a Carleton Place resident, was re-elected president of the club for the year 2015. Extolling grateful thanks to the municipality of Mississippi Mills, especially to Calvin Murphy, parks and recreation director, the president reported on many upgrades to the facility including a new ladies washroom, parking lot grading, work on the greens lighting and the building’s plumbing. Chaput concluded his address by praising the club’s volunteers in completing several successful tournaments, building the greens up to a competitive level and making the new players most welcome.

As Wilkinson had made the People who book before Oct. 15 deferral motion it came back will also receive a $10 voucher to her before it was voted on. “I’m listening to majority,” said Wilkinson. “I think we need to look at it (sign bylaw) to make sure we are doing it right.” The motion was then carried without any further discussion.

Billboard approved on Highway 29

News – In a sign of the times, election time that is, a sign application that met all of the town’s requirements was intently debated on Oct. 7 at Mississippi Mills Committee of the Whole meeting. The committee ended up approving the application for a billboard sign on the Lowry farm at 6142 County Road 29 by GKP Billboards. The sign will be perpendicular to the road and will contain separate advertising entities on each sign face. The only reason it came to council is because it is a billboard and a permit is required to issue them. Mayor John Levi said he was disappointed that council was looking at multi-sign billboards in the community. “I thought we didn’t even allow them (billboards). It’s not going to look too attractive and I’m not in favour,” he said. Coun. Paul Watters asked about the sign committee and if they were consulted on the matter.

Chief building official Len Smith told council that the committee did meet and discussed some changes to the bylaw but it was decided to put those changes over to the new council. Coun. Val Wilkinson said there had been a number of issues with these types of signs before and was concerned with the proposal. “I don’t understand why we are allowing these signs. Perhaps we should be looking at that…we should defer this until we have made proper decision whether to move forward,” she stated. Coun. John Edwards reminded the committee that the applicant met all the requirements of the bylaw. “I think it’s somewhat arbitrary to say we are not going to approve it. He reduced the original proposal…I don’t know the gentleman but he does meet the bylaw so I don’t think we have any right to just say no,” said Edwards. “If we want to take a look at bylaw, perhaps we can look at the distances between signs. I don’t think we have any authority that we have granted ourselves to turn this down at this time. This meets the bylaw.”

Community – If you didn’t pick up your locally grown veggies at the Carleton Place Farmers’ Market this past Saturday, Oct. 11, you’re out of luck until 2015, as this past weekend was their last sale of the season.

sandwiches but it will focus on organic food with ingredients from Dandelion Foods,” said Diepeveen. Beau’s All Natural Brewing Company will be hosting Beau’s Patio Party at the Barley Mow from 2 to 8 p.m. on what Apt613 says is one of the “snazziest patios in Ontario.” Hello Yellow will be featuring local entrepreneur Dan Fallak of VersaTile Designs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and the store also has a partnership with Victoire in Ottawa.

Beckwith Township presents community Halloween party Oct. 24 Tara Gesner

Community – The creepy countdown to Beckwith Township’s annual community Halloween party is on. The “spooktacular” party runs from 6 to 8 p.m. next Friday, Oct. 24, at Beckwith Park (1319 9th Line), and everyone is welcome. Festivities, which offer a safe, fun alternative for area youngsters to enjoy the holiday, include various activity and games stations, haunted house and graveyard. Moreover, there will be a refreshments table, and all children in attendance receive a treat bag. The Halloween party’s guided haunted house tour is continuously a big hit, but scary and not-so-scary versions are offered.

Admission to the Halloween party is free. However, donations are accepted at the door – and greatly appreciated. Donations help pay for candy, decorations and more. The Halloween party, which runs rain or shine, continues to be a success, owing to the hard work of the Beckwith Youth Committee (BYC), community volunteers and township staff. Pumpkin carving Carve a pumpkin, demonstrating your imagination, creativity and skill. Beckwith Township is once more holding a pumpkin carving contest, accepting entries from individuals, families and classes. Carved pumpkins should be dropped off at Beckwith Park no later than 6 p.m., and judging takes place throughout the evening by members of the

public. Winners will be notified on Monday, Oct. 27, and their names will be published in the December issue of the township’s newsletter, the Beckwith Beaver. For additional information or to volunteer, contact the township’s recreation department at 613-257-1539 or cmcgregor@ Ghostly fun If you’re feeling brave and looking for additional ways to celebrate Halloween, venture to Carleton Place on Saturday, Oct. 25. Ghouls and goblins will take over Bridge Street for the 2014 Maskeraid Halloween Parade.

She also hopes to expand her duties in the future if the need arises. “I could get involved in more new programs to help children who are in different situations but I wanted to give myself some time to learn about the referrals first,” explained Francu. She will also be available to provide support to the obstetrics program at the Almonte General Hospital as well. “I hope to be available to newborns who need support on a consultation basis,” said Francu. “They have a very well put together program but if they have specific concerns about a newborn, I would be able to help out.” Francu says that pediatrics was her first love; during her training she also studied neurology but soon realized that she enjoyed working directly with children. “What attracted me to pediatrics is being able to work with families and children,” she said, “so they can achieve their full potential and live and healthy and happy life.”




Community – The doctor is in, so it’s time to welcome Dr. Corina Francu, a certified pediatric specialist, to Almonte. She is based out of the Ottawa Valley Health Team located at 95 Spring St. and is currently accepting referrals. Francu is a graduate of the Universitatea Transilvania in Romania and the University of Ottawa where she completed her residence this summer and is certified by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. During her residency she worked at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, Hotel Dieu Hospital in Kingston and at Cornwall Community Hospital. Francu, as a foreign trained physician, received funding from the Ministry of Health and in exchange she is required to give back to a community in need. The return of service agreement is for five years and although she says she doesn’t know what the future holds for her after that, she will be in the Mississippi Mills community for at least that amount of time. “I like this area. It is beauti-

Valley, including Mount Pakenham. “It’s a nice hill. It was fun but it was not as steep as I was used to in Transylvania where they have a nice mountain area for downhill,” said Francu. Francu’s first day on the job was Sept. 10. Since then she has been getting organized, setting up her office and building up referrals. “It’s a learning curve,” she said. As a pediatric specialist, she is currently accepting referrals for a number of conditions: asthma, recurrent infections, behavioral problems, learning difficulties, sleep problems, headaches, to name only a few. Patients wishing to see Francu should contact their family physician for a referral. Their midwife or a nurse practitioner can also refer them. Although her office is based in Almonte at the Ottawa Valley Health Team, Francu will also be travelling to Carleton Place and Arnprior on a regular basis for clinics.

Community – On Thursday, Sept. 25, Notre Dame Catholic High School (CHS) in Carleton Place held a dress casual day to raise funds for the Muscular Dystrophy Association of Canada in honour of former student Matt Marcil. Students were encouraged to pay $2 for the privilege of wearing casual clothes to school instead of their regular uniform, and the proceeds were donated to this good cause. This month’s charity is one that hits close to home for many staff and students at the school and more than $1,300 was raised in Matt’s name. Muscular Dystrophy (MD) is a term that includes a range of muscular disorders that include muscles in the face, arms, and legs; as well, the spine will shrink and weaken as time passes. There are many types of MD which are defined by a variety of factors: the age at which symptoms start, the patterns of the muscle weaknesses, the speed that the disease progresses at, and the affect the disease has on tissues besides the muscles. MD is a genetic mutation passed on through the Y chromosome, and it is always inherited. While physical therapy and physical aids such as wheelchairs are used to help patients, there is currently no known cure for this disease. Matt graduated from grade 12 at Notre Dame in June 2014. Matt had a rare form of Muscular Dystrophy and passed away in September. At the

MVFN publishes book based on natural history lectures Community – The Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists (MVFN) host natural history talks throughout the year in Almonte. These lectures have been taking place more or less regularly since the club’s founding in 1988. You do not need to be an expert to enjoy these presentations, just a fascination and curiosity for the natural world! Speakers are experts in their fields, often at a world-class level. The information provided, whether giving insights into a particular species or habitat or even a global environmental issue, is up-to-date, and there is a focus on the local perspective. This means the lectures really are worthy of and likely of interest to a larger local audience than attend the talks. In order to spread the word to a wider audience, volunteer MVFN reporters diligently write up accounts of the talks for the local media and for posting on the club’s website. As one of several 25th anniversary initiatives, MVFN decided to publish these lecture reports in book form last year. The first volume, Natural History Lecture Series of the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists 2013 is now available on loan from the Almonte branch of the Mississippi Mills Public Library. The book and individual lecture reports are also available for download from the MVFN website at Accounts of other MVFN natural history lectures may also be found on the website as well the announcements of upcoming lectures. We invite you to visit there to learn more about the natural world! The book includes reports of natural history talks for two series: Trends in Fauna and Flora and Nature Beneath

From left: Cathy Keddy, Pauline Donaldson (co-editors of the new book, along with Jim Bendell); Pam Harris, chief executive officer/chief librarian of the Mississippi Mills Public Library; MVFN member Yvonne Bendell and Jim Bendell. our Feet held between September 2011 and May 2013. Topics include Citizen Science Networks, Lanark County Soil FUNdamentals, Ground Beetles-My Favourite Group and other topics ranging from salamanders, arctic ground-

nesting birds, flying squirrels, green ‘aliens’ and more. Also included in the volume are the speaker biographies and contact information, and some key references. The book includes a dedication to Mike McPhail, president of MVFN

from 2006-2009. MVFN’s goal in providing the information is to contribute to a broader understanding and greater appreciation of our natural environment, and wiser interaction with it. In addition, in reading a report or biography, perhaps

a young reader will be inspired to follow in the footsteps of one of the expert speakers. The lecture reporting project would not have been possible without the dedication of the following people who authored reports: Joel Byrne, Mary Robinson, Fred Schueler, Lynda Bennett, Jim Bendell, Linda Mosquin, Pauline Donaldson, Mike Macpherson, Cliff Bennett, Eugene Fytche, Christine Hume, and Elizabeth Wiles. All are active and passionate volunteers for nature, several having served on the board of MVFN, and all enthusiastically gave their time and effort to provide excellent details of the talks, as well as their own personal insights and impressions. Cathy Keddy was the inspiration behind the lecture series and coordinated the lecture program as program chair for MVFN from 2008-2014. Project organizers and editors were Pauline Donaldson, Cathy Keddy and Jim Bendell. MVFN thanks Peter Nelson, former head librarian of the Town of Mississippi Mills Public Library for his advice and encouragement with the project, and also Pam Harris, new chief executive officer/chief librarian of the Mississippi Mills Public Library. MVFN’s natural history lectures began again for a new season earlier this September. The talks take place in the social hall of the Almonte United Church on Elgin St. in Almonte. Mark your calendars for the next presentation on Thursday, Oct. 16. Watch for speaker details in the local media and on the website.

Lending a helping hand to small business of the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC), which sponsors Small Business Week each year. “To prevail, they need the right preparation and a solid roadmap. That means fostering excellent customer service and supplier relationships, applying sound financial management principles and hiring the best people.” But for any business to succeed, whether it’s the small candy shop on the corner or the shoe store that’s been in the family for generations, they need support and that’s where organizations such as the Small Business Advisory Centre (Smiths Falls/Lanark County) can help. Located at 91 Cornelia Street West, entrance B, the centre, which serves en-

trepreneurs and businesses in Lanark, Smiths Falls, Perth, Carleton Place and Mississippi Mills, aids those starting a new business but also provides business advisory services to existing ones. And much of the resources are free of charge. “Whether you have a business that is home-based, retail, service-based or manufacturing, there is material waiting for you,” the centre noted on its website ( “Our walk-in resource centre is full of useful literature available to the public including supplier directories, associations, sample business plans, franchise manuals, Canadian Almanac, market research data and information on various types of

businesses.” While any business owner can walk in and pick up those materials at any time, the centre offers one-on-one consultations for those who need help in a specific area. Some of the information they can provide includes start-up procedures, business plans, record keeping, budgeting and cash flow, taxes, market research, sales and marketing, employees, expansion, licences and permits, as well as government information and incorporation. Any business must be registered and the Small Business Advisory Centre can also walk clients through the process, step by step. As a partner of Canada

Let’s take a closer look at TFSAs and how to avoid tax penalties. • TFSA investments are not tax deductible but they do grow on a tax-free basis. • The annual TFSA dollar limit is indexed to inflation in $500 increments and for 2014 the limit is $5,500. • If you don’t use your maximum contribution room every year, it accumulates year after year, so you can use it any time you choose.

Manage Your Money o Plus the amount of withdrawals from a previous year (excluding withdrawals of excess contributions, qualifying transfers, or other specified contributions). o Plus any unused contribution room from previous years. • If you make a withdrawal, the earliest you can ‘earn back’ your TFSA contribution room is the first day of the next year after the TFSA withdrawal was made. And this is where many TFSA-holders are running into unexpected taxes: At any time of the year, if you contribute more than your allowable TFSA contribution room, you will be considered to have over-contributed to your TFSA and you will be subject to a tax equal to 1% of the highest excess TFSA in the month, for each month you are in an excess contribution position*. Here’s an example: o You have maximized your TFSA contribution room for 2014, but decide to withdraw $4,000 for Christmas shopping. Assuming that you have no additional contribution room from previous years, if you were to re-

contribute this $4,000 before the end of 2014, you would be considered to have over-contributed and would incur tax penalties. However, if you wait until January 1, 2015, you would have ‘re-earned’ the $4,000 contribution room and could contribute up to that amount in your TFSA without penalty. When you know the ‘rules’ and follow them, there are many ways a TFSA could work for you. Your professional advisor can help you get the most from your TFSA and every other element in your overall financial plan. *Canada Revenue Agency,

Since their introduction by the federal government in 2009, Tax-Free Savings Accounts (TFSAs) have become a favorite savings option for many Canadians – and with good reason: TFSAs provide tax-free savings growth and easy, tax-free withdrawals at any time for any purpose. Almost anyone can benefit from a TFSA – but if you have one, be careful because there is one not-well-understood recontribution rule that could cost you an unexpected tax hit. That mistake: Making a withdrawal from your TFSA and replacing the money too early.

Noteworthy musings from the motorway south of the border Lifestyle – Filing this week from Florida after a two-day vacation drive south with the family and a few things on the road stuck out as noteworthy to pass along. First, in New York I loved the reminder signs warning about the dangers of texting while driving. They have renamed their interstate roadside rest stops as ‘Text Stops’ with the tag-line; a text can wait. I also appreciated their laws on texting that pulls the driver’s licence of anyone racking up three textingwhile-driving infractions. Junior drivers (those with learner permits or probationary licences) loose their driving privileges after the first offense. If we want to get serious about reducing electronic driver distractions in this province we need some stiffer rules like New York’s. Next, why can’t we have provincially owned noncommercial rest stops? The I-95

highway from the New York/ Canadian border to Florida is full of them and all have plenty of parking, great restrooms, fresh water and vending machines. Even the best of our highway fuel stations with their multibillion dollar fast food empire backed facilities can’t compete with the U.S. Interstate reststops for clean functional restrooms and picnic areas. Highway signage is also a point where the eastern seaboard states have us beat. Every exit has a series of signs indicating which fuel stations, motels, and restaurants are located at the bottom of the ramp so it’s easy to find exactly what you and your car-mates are looking for. The businesses are all listed combined uniformly designed signs and are found at predictable distances from each exit ramp. Traveling through large cities on multi-lane highways

Car Counsellor BRIAN TURNER

can be stressful enough even when using a good quality GPS navigation device to help guide your way. When faced with finding the correct lane for an exit or merge onto another route, several states have come up with a great solution. Overhead signage can be confusing when it comes to getting the correct lane so their highway departments have taken to painting the route number on the pavement itself. This takes all the guesswork out of selecting the right lane and carries a minimal cost. “Hey Brian, So I have a 2004 Toyota Corolla S with about, 270,000 km on it, with custom stereo,

speakers, led lights and some other parts. I rear-ended someone and apparently the repair costs to my Corolla are around $6,400 and the insurance company has considered it a write off. At this point in my life I can’t afford another car payment. Is there any way to not make it a write off and keep the car? Everything else is fine in the car, the airbags didn’t deploy or anything it’s just the front end. I don’t think anything structural got damaged. I just want to keep my car instead of getting a new one. Thank you for your time.” You can request that your insurance company allow you to

keep possession of your vehicle and take a cash settlement for the damages. Be warned that a cash settlement is usually considerably less than the damage estimate and might not be enough to repair the vehicle. Then there’s the issue of reregistering a vehicle that has been deemed a total loss by an insurance company. Before this vehicle can go back on the road it will have to go through a very rigorous inspection and repair process by a specially licensed repair shop. My advice would be to get such a shop to provide an appraisal and opinion as to whether this is feasible

and/or practical. If you have any questions, opinions, or stories on anything automotive please drop me a line, [By email to emc@perfprint. ca or directly to bjoeturner@ listing ‘Question for the Car Counsellor’ on the subject line or by post to Record News Communications, 5 Lorne St., P.O.

The 1940 Ford convertible had a poweroperated top and a back seat under the roof instead of a rumble seat, reflecting the growing desire of the motoring public for more protection from the weather. The 2-passenger coupe in 1939 had no back seat and was popular with travelling sales people. Also, 1939 was the last year before the adoption of sealed beam headlights industry-wide in 1940.

Powerful performances in The Judge Local men join Camino de Santiago trek MOVIE: The Judge STARRING: Robert Downey Jr., Robert Duvall, Vera Farmiga, Billy Bob Thornton, Vincent D’Onofrio, Jeremy Strong and Dax Shepard DIRECTOR: David Dobkin RATING: 14A Entertainment – It’s a rare film that can take you through the entire gambit of human emotions. The Judge is a very rare film. He gets the call in the middle of a trial. It’s a high profile case where Hank Palmer’s (Robert Downey Jr.) client is rich and most likely guilty. It’s a case Hank will easily win, but when that call comes in, nothing else matters because Hank’s mother has died. The big city lawyer heads back to the small town where he grew up. He sees his brothers Glen (Vincent D’Onofrio) and Dale (Jeremy Strong). He even runs into his high school girlfriend Samantha (Vera Farmiga). Then he sees his father, Judge Joseph Palmer (Robert Duvall), and remembers why he left and never came back. To say Hank and his father have a complicated relationship would be an understatement. None-the-less they manage to get through the funeral with

the trial begins you sit on the edge of your seat with them. All of it is masterfully woven together. There is no shortage of brilliant performances in The Judge. Everywhere you look you find intelligent and sensitive actors giving every ounce of their talent to this film. Vera Farmiga, Billy Bob Thornton, Vincent D’Onofrio, Jeremy Strong and Dax Shepard are amazing. Robert Downey Jr’s performance is an example of what good acting should be. Hank Palmer, with all his strengths and flaws, is made real through Downey’s depth of emotion, and his ability to convey those emotions. With every line, every gesture, and every expression Downey mesmerizes the audience. Robert Duvall is a true master of the craft. To take this intelligent, powerful, and even hard man that Judge Palmer is, and be able to also show his frailty and his humanity is one of the most moving performances of the year. Downey and Duvall together are awe-inspiring. Theirs is a perfect synergy that creates a film that will live with you long after you’ve left the theatre. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature.

My Take


minimal conflict. Hank is happily getting on a plane to go back to the city when he gets another call. His father has been arrested. It seems on the night of the funeral the Judge hit and killed someone with his car. The police think it was murder. Hank feels like he has no choice but to stay and defend his father. It’s an almost impossible task. He has to find a way to re-connect with the father who seemingly hates him. They need to work together. They need to forgive each other. Some films grab your attention with action, or dazzling special effects, or with a complicated plot. The Judge draws you in through the emotional complexity of its characters, and the intricacy of their relationships with each other. You get to know these characters intimately. You laugh with them, you cry with them, and when the drama of

Community – Are you at all intrigued by the Camino de Santiago, the renown 800-kilometre pilgrimage in Spain? Maybe you’ve seen the movie The Way, with Martin Sheen. Maybe you know a friend who did it. Maybe it’s even on your bucket list. Well, on Saturday, Nov. 1, you can get a sense of this 1,200-year-old spiritual walk. Wintergreen Studios, an off-grid retreat north of Kingston, is holding a Camino Spirit evening, complete with sights, stories, sounds and tastes of the Camino. From 5:30 p.m. until whenever you choose to leave, you will hear stories, enjoy a three-course Spanish menu inspired by the pilgrim dinners that are prevalent on the Camino, see amazing photographs, hear the late Oliver Shroer’s amazing fiddle music composed and recorded in churches on the Camino, listen to a reading from a local Camino author, and enjoy other tales of Camino magic shared by locals who have been on this life-changing pilgrimage. For those that have the time and inclination, you can come in the early afternoon and enjoy a walk in the truly beautiful 200+ acre property, networked with gentle hiking trails in and around beautiful streams, ponds, and small lakes. You also have an opportunity to stay overnight, enjoy a campfire, and a traditional pilgrim’s breakfast the next morning. A variety of accommodation is available, from rustic shared dormitory style rooms to ones with more privacy and others in nearby cabins. This will be an informal evening, with lots of variety and opportunity to ask questions and share thoughts. One of the lead presenters is Peter Coffman, currently a professor of Architectural History at Carleton University and a pro-

fessional photographer. A decade ago, he and his wife Diane walked the Camino with their good friend, fiddler Oliver Shroer, carrying full recording and photographic equipment, and stopping at churches along the way to record Oliver playing what the Camino inspired him to play. Anita Jansman is a Kingston-area author who wrote a book called One Day I Walk, reflecting on her experiences on the Camino. She will be at the event, reading selections from her book and adding other thought. Joining her will be Jack Hurd, a well-known creative force in the Perth area, who did the Camino in 2012 and 2013, and wrote some amazing blogs from those experiences. He will also be there, sharing thoughts and probably also songs, once the campfire starts. Also joining the group will be Alfred Von Mirbach, another Perthite who completed the Camino in the fall of 2013 and is helping to organize this event. Wintergreen Studios is Wintergreen is a yearround education and retreat centre in the Frontenac Arch Biosphere Reserve in southeastern Ontario. Their work centres on education, culture, and the environment, with a focus on inspiring people. They offer a variety of short courses in the arts, as well as retreat and meeting facilities for individuals and groups. They are located about 15 minutes south and west of Westport on the Canoe Lake Road. The cost for the evening is $40, which includes the three course-dinner. If you choose overnight accommodation, that will range from $20 to $80, depending on what type of accommodation. Visit or call Alex Campbell, the stewardship and program director at Wintergreen at 613-2738745.
