News – “If I’ve done anything wrong, I stand to be corrected, and I’ll take my public flogging,” stated Carleton Place Mayor Wendy LeBlanc, after responding to comments by Coun. Louis Antonakos during the Nov. 5 planning and protection committee meeting. Two weeks earlier (Oct. 22), Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital (CPDMH) chief executive officer Toni Surko attended the municipality’s policy review committee meeting, providing an update on the status of the hospital’s redevelopment project and taking questions from council and members of the public. “It was a great presentation,” Antonakos said on Nov. 5. “Toni made a lot of comments and a lot of questions were asked.” On the other hand, since the meeting, the councillor noted, “there has been a lot of chatter all over town.” The talk, he explained, is in response to a comment the mayor made in regards to obtaining the support of a number of lobbyists in Toronto who are working on behalf of the hospital. “I am looking for a comment from the mayor in regards to council’s role as it pertains to lobbyists and working on behalf of the hospital through the town,” Antonakos said. “I am looking for some clarity, Wendy.” LeBlanc asked Antonakos to explain himself, as she was “sort of perplexed” by what he was asking. “What exactly did you mean when you said that you have been able to obtain the support of a number of lobbyists in Toronto who are working on behalf of the hospital?” Antonakos asked. “You said ‘the hospital is not involved in any way, shape or form with these lobbyists’ and ‘this is a movement from this council table’,” the councillor continued. “These are your words not mine, and they have

been published.” During the October meeting the mayor would not reveal the identity of the lobbyists; however, it is known that there are three. Antonakos was unable to recall council making a decision to ask for or hire any lobbyists. “Who are the lobbyists that you refer to?” he asked. “This is my first question.” Standing to address Antonakos’ query, LeBlanc said the word ‘lobbyist’ wasn’t the right one. “I had some people approach me personally, people of influence in Toronto who are able to move our case forward,” she continued. “As a council we have all put our full support behind the hospital.” Again, the mayor was perplexed. “Why do you think I engaged these people and continue to work with them, with ministers, with people of influence in Toronto?” LeBlanc asked. “Why is this a great deal of concern?” She added that “most people should say hip hip hooray, we have somebody working for us in Toronto.” The mayor charged that Antonakos was trying to denigrate the work that she and members of the redevelopment committee have done. The councillor said he was only asking the mayor to clarify her words for the community. Although Antonakos was still talking, the mayor began to speak. “You can’t interrupt me like that,” he said. “I can and I just did,” she exclaimed. “I can and I just did.” “Are you proud of that?” Antonakos asked. “It’s something you do on a regular basis,” LeBlanc said. “Rather than taking offence, why don’t you just answer the question?” he inquired. “Why haven’t you provided us with the names of these lobbyists?” Again, LeBlanc noted that lobbyist was the incorrect term

More than 500 angels in need of good cheer this holiday season By LAURIE WEIR laurie.weir@metroland.com

Community – It’s grown from 50 angles to well over 500 in the past 28 years and together, the Ontario Provincial Police and the Lanark County Child and Family Services are working together to bring a little Christmas cheer to needy children throughout the area. “It’s year 28 and as we approach nearly three decades with this pro-

gram, it is a true testament to the generosity and Christmas spirit in Lanark County and the surrounding area,� said Const. Paige Whiting in a press release. The angel tree program has been supporting children in the area with gifts at Christmas for almost 30 years. On each of the cards that adorn the various Christmas trees, is a child’s age, sex and something about them so the gift-giver has an idea what the child would like

to find under the tree on Christmas morning. Folks are encouraged to pick up an angel or two, and provide an age appropriate gift and return it with the angel tag to the tree from where it was placed, by Dec. 11. The gifts should not be wrapped or in gift bags, as they will be sorted and collected by OPP and the Crime Stoppers unit on Dec. 12. This year, the program started with 580 angles on trees at the OPP detach-

ments in Perth, Carleton Place and East Region Headquarters in Smiths Falls, and municipal offices in Tay Valley, Lanark Highlands, Drummond/North Elmsley, Montague, Beckwith, Mississippi Mills and at the Pakenham library. There are many other businesses involved in this year’s event, including WOW FIT, Eaton, Albany in Perth and Ladies Under Construction in Almonte. In Tay Valley, clerk

Amanda Mabo says they have been getting inquiries already about the angle tree and when the angels will be available. “The community has been overwhelming with their support,� she says. “It’s really a benefit to area.� “We are certain that this yar’s goal will be met as it has in past years,� Whiting stated, and added that the angel card should also be attached to the gift and that the gift contents are

and Family Services, who in turn, will ensure children/youth that have been brought to their attention have an appropriate gift at Christmas,� Whiting wrote. “We thank everyone for participating.�

Gord Brown encourages donations for typhoon relief of the typhoon. On Saturday Minister Paradis announced that Canada will provide up to $5 million in support to humanitarian organizations striving to meet the needs of the people affected by this typhoon in the Philippines and surrounding regions. On Sunday he announced the further matching funds. Emergency relief activities will include the provision of emergency shelter, food, water, livelihood support, and other essential services. “Canada is deeply concerned by the impact of this catastrophic typhoon,”

said Minister Paradis. “We continue to monitor the situation closely and are working with Canadian and international humanitarian partners to determine what assistance is required.” The situation related to Typhoon Haiyan is evolving rapidly. The strongest typhoon this year, it slammed into the Philippines on Friday, Nov. 8 setting off landslides, knocking out power in several provinces, and cutting communications in the country’s central region of island provinces. The typhoon was expected to track toward

Vietnam, where it was expected to make landfall on Nov. 10. Significant loss of life, a large number of injuries, as well as destruction of property, have been reported. Nearly 4.3 million people are reportedly affected, and although needs assessments are ongoing, humanitarian needs are expected to be substantial. “In addition to the support announced today, Canada has provided support through the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies to provide immediate assistance to those affected

by Typhoon Haiyan,” said Minister Paradis. According to its website, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies has been working with the Philippine Red Cross as it prepared rapid response teams and supplies for those worst affected by the storm. Search and rescue teams are on standby and emergency supplies of blankets, sleeping mats, hygiene kits and water carriers have been sent from stores in Manila to a warehouse in Cebu ready for distribution in the coming days.

Build a Mountain of Food campaign organizer is roasted for his cause laurie.weir@metroland.com

Community – Hugh Colton didn’t mind getting a rump roast for his food cause, even if it was his own. A full house of well-wishers, supporters and friends were on hand Thursday, Nov. 7 at the Perth Civitan Club as the community roasted Hugh Colton, the founder of the Build a Mountain of Food campaign. “I didn’t mind being roasted for a good cause,” Colton said. “I finally got my hockey pads off… I’m well done.” Ken Fournier of the Civitan wanted to roast him, and had approached him in the spring about it. “I was fine with it because of what it was for,” he said. “There were a lot of people I haven’t seen for quite some time.” Colton was brought to tears, both of sadness and in jest, as his roasters jumped in, no holds barred. They spoke of his humble beginnings in radio to his farreaching community support with this Build a Mountain of Food campaign. There was a lot of family history brought to the forefront during the roast, and Colton was hit with an emotional gamut. From his early days in radio, to losing his parents at a young age, to his sailor suits and wild partying days, and on to his focus and outreach with the food campaign, there was a common thread – community. Colton said he learned about the importance of community support from the likes of Hal Botham and Max Keeping. “Hal was a community guy. And I know Max Keeping fairly well and when Max came to this community at 19 years old and knew that if I was going to get people watching, I had to get out and meet people. I mean, he was the best… in his early days, he would go out seven days a week. He spent a lot of time in the community, doing a lot of great things.” But why the food bank? “The first passion would be kids. I have a really tough time watching kids go hungry. I like to eat. I can’t stomach a kid or someone not having enough to eat. It shouldn’t be happening. Kids going three or four days on nothing… it’s just not right.” It’s not that people who are going without food are doing anything wrong, Colton said, “Situations change on a regular basis. There are working poor who are doing the best they can and still can’t get through a month. I believe the community at

large understands that and through the awareness of the program, boy they keep coming. We don’t set goals with this. We basically say, ‘OK, let’s hit the road and do the best that we can,’ and what’s happened, is every year it has continued to grow.” From the first year, when they went from one town – Perth – collecting about 3,000 pounds for one food bank, has grown now to 11 towns and villages in eastern Ontario, and that’s stretching the limit. Last year’s total broke a record – something the campaign has been doing on an annual basis – with 200,000 pounds of food collected and more than $100,000 in cash. “This community has always come through…they know the importance of the cause,” Colton said. Not only with the campaign be in your neighbourhood collecting donations, but there will be three Santa Claus parades where Colton and his elves will be collecting food donations. Those dates are Nov. 23 in Smiths Falls (it’s a night parade, but details are unavailable at this time), Carleton Place on the Nov. 30, 7:30 p.m. and Perth is on Dec. 7, at 5 p.m. Coming your way The Build a Mountain of Food campaign will be in the following communities: • Saturday, Nov. 16: Perth at Brownlee’s Metro, Barnabe’s Your Independent Grocer, Foodsmiths, and Giant Tiger, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Lanark at 49 George St. Collecting for The Table Community Food Centre and Lanark Highlands Food Pantry. • Saturday, Nov. 23: Smiths Falls at Andress’ Your Independent Grocer, Food Basics, Giant Tiger, and Garden Market, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Collecting for Smiths Falls Community Food Bank. • Saturday, Nov. 30: Westport at Food Market, from 9 a.m. to noon, and Elgin at Gordanier Fresh Mart, 1 to 4 p.m. Collecting for Westport and Elgin Food Banks. • Saturday, Dec. 7: Portland at Food Market, 9 a.m. to noon, and Merrickville at Food Market, 1 to 4 p.m. Collecting for Portland Food Bank and Merrickville Emergency Food Cupboard. • Saturday, Dec. 14: Athens at the Fresh Mart, 9 a.m. to noon, and Delta, at Country Market, 1 to 4 p.m. Collecting for Athens Ministerial Food Bank and Delta Food Bank. “We’re going to cross our fingers and hit the bricks,” Colton said, “and hopefully, we can fill all those food bank shelves.”

Eighth annual Heritage Perth Christmas House Tour set for Dec. 7 and 8 “It really is a big success story,” Boyer said. Those funds go to the organization’s education awards, fund literacy projects and to assist local libraries. “The money all goes back to the community and the focus is really on education, that’s one of CFUW Canada’s mandates,” said Hickey. The Perth chapter of the CFUW is a non-profit organization of women university graduates dedicated to raising the social, economic and legal status of women. It currently has more than 100 members. One of the most unique aspects of the event is that each home on the tour is paired with a business or designer who is responsible for decorating the space for the season. One house will feature gingerbread men and hot cider courtesy of The Sunflower Bake Shop and Barnabe’s Independent Grocer, while others will have live local music.

Community – Jane Hackett opens the door to her stately red brick home at 27 D’Arcy Street in Perth and welcomes her visitors inside. Once indoors, it’s hard to know where to look first: the winding staircase, bold and vibrant works of art and European antiques in the sitting and dining room or the expansive palladium windows which let sunlight stream into the cozy living area. She has owned the heritage home since 2005 and come Dec. 7 and 8, it will be one of eight houses featured on the Perth chapter of the Canadian Federation of University Women’s (CFUW) eighth annual Heritage Perth Christmas House Tour. According to Hackett, the CFUW had been trying to get her to include her home in the event for years. “Jackie (Boyer, chair of the tour and CFUW vice-president) asked me back in April and she was very persuasive,” Hackett remarked. “The tour has a good reputation and it’s an opportunity for me to contribute to the community a little bit.” The home was built in 1880 and has had several additions, but Hackett’s decorating style of predominantly French and Italian antiques, sprinkled with Canadiana, as well as contemporary Canadian art (by Donna Lund and Gordon Harrison to name a few), can be seen throughout the space. The intimate kitchen is bright and cheery, accented by white cupboards and a fireplace. The house sponsor for this home on the tour is Decorating by Design and it will be decorated by Apropos Flowers). The final touches are currently being put on the tour, which includes a mix of modern and heritage homes. “When looking for houses, we look to have older houses because they attract a lot of interest but also have started to include some newer homes because there are some really unique new homes in town as well,” explained Karen Hickey, member of the CFUW house

Hickey noted that it takes a large team of volunteers to bring the tour together, which kicks off planning in January. She said the community and its businesses have also been very supportive, as well as the homeowners who open the doors to their home and put their trust in tour organizers. “It takes a village. We couldn’t do this tour if we didn’t have the support of the local community,” she said, adding that last year’s tour had each home sponsored and went a long way to supporting the initiative. “Businesses and all of the grocery stores are R0032315052_1114

involved and they really help us out with in-kind and cash donations.” “By bringing in the concept of having the houses sponsored last year, it was the first time we were able to self-fund the tour. All of the proceeds raised from ticket sales went back into the community,” Hickey continued. Best Western Plus Perth Parkside Inn & Spa is offering special discount rates to visitors and St. James Anglican Church and a selection of local restaurants will have express lunch deals to tour participants. Each year, the tour brings in more than 600 to 700 visitors and is the biggest annual fundraiser for the CFUW. They have raised more than $90,000 over the last seven years.

Another on 2649 Drummond Concession 2, will have a display on local agriculture and the role it has played. “We try to have a special feature in each of the houses,” Boyer said. In addition to the house tour, on Sunday, Dec. 8 only, the CFUW will host a Crafter’s Marketplace in the Best Western Plus Perth Parkside Inn & Spa from 10:30 to 4 p.m. Items will be produced by CFUW members, their families and friends and include Christmas ornaments, jewelry, paintings, pottery, baked goods and books by local authors. “People can pick up Christmas gifts and James Bartleman and Roy MacSkimming will be there promoting their latest novels,” Boyer stated. The homes This year’s tour has six heritage homes and two newer ones on display. “I’m thrilled with the lineup,” said Boyer. “We’ve been very lucky. In the four years I’ve been involved, the house selection has gotten better and better as the tours have gotten better and better.” “...Every house has something really super about it that people will recall and look back on,” she added. The Waddell House on 61 Drummond Street East (sponsored by Ground Waves Home & Gifts and decorated by the homeowner and Hillside Gardens) was built in 1883 and is designated as a place of historical significance under the Ontario Heritage Act. It has been lovingly restored by the current homeowners and many original features have

been kept or preserved, including an ornate plaster ceiling medallion and curving stairway in the living room. A welcoming red brick structure awaits visitors to 73 Drummond Street East (sponsored by Finnegan’s Insurance Broker Ltd. and decorated by the homeowner and Gemmell’s Flowers). Through many renovations by different homeowners the vintage charm of the house has remained. Largely furnished with family heirlooms and antiques, all original trim has been retained. It will be accented by vintage holiday decorations on the tour. One of the newly-built homes (2006) on the tour is situated at 2855 Scotch Line (sponsored by Kevin James Construction and decorated by Peggy Paul and Unravelled of Merrickville). The homeowners worked closely with the builder to ensure the design was just right and the interior features newer pieces mixed with family heirlooms. Paintings by local artists and adorn the space. An original stone house at the front of the property has been destroyed but the ruins have been preserved and stabilized by the owners. The stone home at 2526 Drummond Concession 2, County Road 10 (sponsored by Blair & Son Home Furnishings and to be decorated by Interiors by Judie Cross), was built in 1825 by Thomas James and has evolved through several restoration projects. It was used as a bed and breakfast for 10 years before it became a private home once again in 2007. Highlights include an exposed brick wall in the kitchen, as well as paintings by local artists.

Thomas Hands built the home at 2649 Drummond Concession 2, County Road 10 (sponsored by Embers and decorated by Kelly’s Flowers) in 1880. With a long history, Arklow farm has served as a stagecoach shop, family home and model farm in Lanark County. It bears an original coal burning fireplace, antique furniture and vintage ceiling beams and flooring.

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

School board raising awareness about mental illness DEAR EDITOR: I am happy to announce that the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario (CDSBEO) will partner with us on the implementation of the Elephant in the Room Anti-Stigma Campaign, raising awareness about mental illness in the workplace, and in the classroom. The CDSBEO is the first school board in the province of Ontario, to partner with The Mood Disorders Society of Canada on this initiative. A blue elephant, which will be displayed in schools and board locations, will signify that the CDSBEO cares about the wellness of others, and that the board is a safe place to talk about mental health, without fear of being looked upon differently, thought of less, or punished. The initiative will help to build understanding around mental health issues, and to build a Board culture of empathy and support. Mental health and illness have for too long lived under false knowledge and misconceptions, and sadly the stigma that clouds mood disorders often prevents persons who may have mental health issues from

seeking treatment for their conditions. Many people fear what ‘others will think’ if they publicly acknowledge their health issue and seek treatment. Stigma and discrimination remain the number one concern for the majority of persons living with mental illness and their families because they live with its effects every day. The CDSBEO is working with Mood Disorders Society of Canada to battle against stigma, raise awareness of mood disorders, and provide those affected by mental illness with a voice. Through this partnership with the CDSBEO, we are able make a positive impact on the lives of people who suffer with bipolar disorder, depression and other mood disorders. Phil Upshall National executive director Mood Disorders Society of Canada

COMMENTARY

Try the trades Editorial – While males tend to dominate the trades, the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) is trying to change that. The school board, through its Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP), is set to host Living the Skilled Life, an evening to encourage women to see the value in a career in the trades. This can be anything from welding, truck and coach diesel mechanic, to horticulture, plumbing and electrical. It is set to take place Nov. 18 to 22 at University of Guelph, Kemptville Campus. According to OYAP, there is a big shortage of tradespeople in Ontario in general, whether they are women or not. However, women shouldn’t discount the trades when seeking a post-secondary career as the competitive wages offered can give workers a comfortable lifestyle. OYAP’s facilitator for UCDSB, Alex MacDougall noted that four out of 10 new jobs over the next 20 years will be in the trades and by the year 2020, the country will be short one million skilled tradespeople, just in Ontario alone. Add to that, 26 per cent of tradespeople will be retiring over the next 10 years. Kudos to the UCDSB for co-ordinating this event, which will provide female students with hands-on learning experiences from women working in the trades. It gives them a chance to test out their skills at a variety of trades to see if they are cut out for a career as an electrician or mechanic. The Province of Ontario is also attempting to attract more women to the trades and since 2003 has offered the Women in Skilled Trades and Information Technology Training program. Since that time, more than 2,200 women have been trained through the program and approximately 80 per cent find employment. Skilled trades aren’t just for men anymore.

Mary’s brothers always argued over hand-me-down box Lifestyle – The station master had called that morning. It didn’t matter what Father had planned for the day, it would have to be put on hold. More important was going into Renfrew and bringing home the hand-me-down box that had arrived from Regina. When we got home from school, there it was, sitting in the middle of the kitchen …a big square wooden box that at one time had held bulk tea. It was lined with a kind of foil, and until it was opened after supper, there it would sit with its lid nailed shut. Of course, we didn’t lay a finger on it until after the kitchen had been ‘redded’ up, and our hands washed. I was never sure why we had to wash our hands before we could touch a dirty wood box that had come all the way from Regina on the train! Finally, we were ready. We sat around the box on kitchen chairs while Everett pried the lid off with a crowbar. There would be nothing in it but boys clothes, since Aunt Lizzie, the sender of the hand-me-down box had only sons, and there was really nothing in the box

to interest my sister Audrey and me. So often we chose to sit at the kitchen table looking through Eaton’s catalogue while my three brothers and Mother pawed through the big box of clothes. Father, of course, showed no interest at all. He was in his usual position in front of the Findlay Oval, half asleep in the rocking chair. But that night, Audrey and I joined the circle as piece after piece of boys’ clothes, along with pants and jackets that had belonged to Uncle Jack, were taken out. Down in the very bottom was a pair of men’s shiny shoes. Well! Emerson grabbed them before anyone else had a chance and claimed them as his own. The brothers had a pair each of well worn laced boots kept for church, and gum rubbers which they wore to school. Never had any of the three owned a pair of shiny black leather shoes. Everett thought because he was the oldest, they should belong to him. Emerson roared that he saw them first, and said there would be a ‘roary’ eyed fight if Everett tried to claim them. “They don’t look like they fit you,” Vice President & Regional Publisher Mike Mount mmount@perfprint.ca 613-283-3182, ext. 104

Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

Mother said. There was no doubt Emerson was bigger by far than Everett, but Emerson already had his gum rubbers off and cramming his stockinged feet into the shoes. He was getting red in the face, and it didn’t take a genius to see that the shoes were a good inch shorter than Emerson’s enormous feet, but he was going to own them and that’s all there was to it. Before there was any further discussion, he carried the shoes upstairs and put them under the bed he shared with Earl and dared anyone to lay a finger on them! He never once tried them on all week, but every night he brought them downstairs and rubbed them with an old piece

of long ‘johns’ from the rag bag. “I’ll be wearing those to church on Sunday,” he announced every night. Well, Sunday came, and after the morning chores, we all got dressed for church. Emerson came downstairs, walking like he had a bag of potatoes under his pants, but wearing the new shoes. Mother asked him why he was walking so funny, and he said he was breaking in the shoes. My sister Audrey said under her breath, “I think the shoes are breaking in him!” He hobbled into church, hobbled out, and could barely make it back into the house when we got home where he fell into the nearest chair and pulled off the new shiny black shoes. He let out a sigh of relief and then pulled off his socks. “What happened to your toes?” I asked him. They were as red as a beet and he had to use his fingers to unbend them. Everett was ready to claim the shoes when Emerson said he could buy them if he wanted, but he certainly wasn’t getting them for nothing! “They are my shoes, and they stay my shoes until you

pay for them,” Emerson said, rubbing his toes trying to get the cramps out of them. Well, that’s when Mother entered the fray. She got up from the kitchen table, walked over to where Emerson and the new shiny black shoes were, grabbed them off the floor, and handed them to Everett. She never said a word. She didn’t have to. Everett slipped off his laced boots, and even with heavy grey work socks, he was able to slip his feet in easily. They fit him like they had been made for him. Emerson hardly spoke to Everett for three days. The hand-me-down box never arrived that there wasn’t an argument over who was to get what. Only when the brothers came to blows and were rolling around on the floor, clutching the piece of clothing the fight was over, would Mother call a halt. She could stand just so much of the carry-on, and then she would give each a slap on the side of the head, or a yank on an ear, while Father, sitting in his rocking chair, never took his eyes off the Ottawa Farm Journal. • Advertising rates and terms and conditions are according to the rate card in effect at time advertising published. • The advertiser agrees that the publisher shall not be liable for damages arising out of errors in advertisements beyond the amount charged for the space actually occupied by that portion of the advertisement in which the error occurred, whether such error is due to negligence of its servants or otherwise... and there shall be no liability for non-insertion of any advertisement beyond the amount charged for such advertisement. • The advertiser agrees that the copyright of all advertisements prepared by the Publisher be vested in the Publisher and that those advertisements cannot be reproduced without the permission of the Publisher. • The Publisher reserves the right to edit, revise or reject any advertisement.

School board hears about rewarding St. Michael Catholic High School trench project

CDSBEO financial statements The Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario has reviewed and approved the financial statements for the fiscal period of Sept. 1, 2012 to Aug. 31, 2013. Rob Clayton, senior audit manager

with KPMG, presented an unqualified auditor’s report to the board of trustees. Clayton told the board that in KPMG’s opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the CDSBEO as at Aug. 31, 2013. The results of the board’s operations, and changes in its financial position for the year, are in accordance with Canadian generally accepted accounting principles. Director of Education, William J. Gartland, was pleased with the budget outcome. “The board continues to be diligent in attaining the goals of our strategic plan. One such goal includes fiscal responsibility, and we strive to maintain this priority as we deliver quality Catholic education to our students. These statements demonstrate that those efforts are producing results,” he stated. The board has also met the balanced budget compliance obligations for 201213, in accordance with Section 231(1) of

the Education Act, as well as enveloping provisions placed on special education and board administration expenditures. In addition, 90 per cent of the primary classes in JK to grade 3 had 20 students or less, and 100 per cent of the primary classes had 23 students or less. Gartland said the finance department worked diligently in preparing the financial statements for the audit committee’s detailed review and for the board’s subsequent review and approval. Board chair Brent Laton expressed his thanks on behalf of the board. “The report demonstrates that the board continues to maintain financial accountability, and keep our students’ best interests as a priority,” he said. “We recognize the professionalism of our staff which they continuously demonstrate. On behalf of the board of trustees, I thank you for your dedication.” The 2012-2013 financial statements will be submitted to the Ministry of Education by Nov. CDSBEO will continue

News – The following are highlights from the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario’s (CDSBEO) regular board meeting held Nov. 5 at the board office in Kemptville. The St. Michael Catholic High School (CHS) grade 10 history project, also known as The World War I Trench Project, has helped engage students in Canadian history by providing them with an opportunity to experience history in a real, tangible way. St. Michael CHS teacher, Fred Bortolussi, presented to the board, along with principal Richard James, an overview of the project and the experience it offered to students. The assignment, for students enrolled in the grade 10 Canadian and World Studies course, began with the filling of 1,500 sandbags. Dug to the exact scale of the trenches on Vimy Ridge along the Western Front, the project required students to design their trench using the same reasoning that was used to keep the soldiers safe during WWI. Over the course of approximately one month, the student partook in a unique, hands-on learning experience, working together as a team toward a common goal. Details such as the construction of duckboards to prevent trench foot, and the preparation of hardtack and bully beef (daily food in the trenches), helped students to make many cross-curricular links throughout this project. The project evaluated students on their knowledge and understanding of the WWI trench system, including thinking and inquiry skills, as well as communication skills. The final unit summative report, is a journal entry that the students will write, which is to include accounts of the daily life of a soldier. In completing this assignment, students will demonstrate their knowledge of the important battles of the First World War, as well as how trench life impacted soldiers. Lucas Teed, a grade 10 applied history student, felt that the project was a rich learning experience, particularly considering he is a hands-on learner. “It was really tough work, and we were out there rain or shine. It was just a small taste of what the soldiers would have experienced. It allowed me to make a deeper connection with what I’ve learned in my history course,” he said. Bortolussi expressed his thanks to the students, and staff at St. Michael CHS for allowing the project to come to fruition. The trenches will be part of the Remembrance Day ceremony at St. Michael CHS. Students and staff will marched through the trenches as part of a tribute to fallen soldiers on Nov. 11.

Bowes Brothers Christmas concerts set for Almonte and Carleton Place By JEFF MAGUIRE

Community – Audiences in Lanark County and west Quebec are in for a pre-holiday treat when the always popular Bowes Brothers present ‘Home For Christmas’ a series of three concerts featuring some of the most popular songs of the Yuletide season. The four Bowes brothers and their father Clarence will appear in Almonte, Shawville and Carleton Place beginning with an afternoon performance at the Almonte Arena on Sunday, Nov. 24 at 2:30. The Carleton Place band, who released their latest compact disc in front of a jam-packed audience of more than 400 at the Almonte Civitan Club in midSeptember, will also perform Christmas music at Shawville Arena in west Quebec Sunday, Dec. 1 at 7 p.m. The holiday concert series concludes with a 7 p.m. show at the Carleton Place Arena on Sunday, Dec. 8. Special musical guests for all three performances will be Arlene Quinn, a well-known performer who hails from rural Lanark County and Dave ‘Brownie’ Brown of Carleton Place. The Bowes Brothers and Brown both received acclaim for their performances during the 2013 Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame awards show held at Nepean’s Centrepointe Theatre on Sept. 29. Backing up the Bowes Brothers will be the North Country Show Band including father Clarence on rhythm guitar, drummer Mark Lemieux from Almonte, Pakenham’s Brad Scott on lead guitar and Matt Brydges of Renfrew on stand-up bass. Lemieux is a member of the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame. Tickets for all performances are $15 apiece. They are now available at outlets in all three communities (see the end of this article for complete details).

Almonte’s Charlie Kitts, who was inducted into the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame in 2010 as a builder, will act as master of ceremonies. “Charlie knows how to introduce people perfectly. He has a great sense of humour and he always sets the scene so well,” says Carleton Place concert promoter Bob White who has been recruited to assist with the series. “The concerts will feature lots of old Christmas favourites. But there will be just enough other music to keep everyone happy,” White observes. A true “Band of Brothers” the foursome remains true to their roots. The Bowes boys were born, raised and still live in and around their hometown of Carleton Place. Many of their songs are written by oldest brother Ed while younger brothers Rod, John and Andy all take turns on lead vocals. Influenced by some of the greats of the country music industry, the band features outstanding four-part harmony. Youngest brother Andy is also well known for his yodeling ability. Popular group The Bowes Brothers have become one of the most popular bands in the Ottawa Valley and Eastern Ontario. They also have a sizeable following in the Maritimes where they have performed numerous times. In 2010 they were featured at the world famous Calgary Stampede. The Bowes Brothers have earned a place on stage with some of the greats of the industry opening for such major musical figures as Ricky Skaggs, Terri Clark, Michelle Wright, George Canyon, Paul Brandt, Ronnie Prophet, Charlie Major and the late, great Stompin’ Tom Connors. “For these shows we will be doing 75 per cent Christmas music,” says band spokesman John Bowes. In 2006 the brothers released a holiday CD, one of five recordings they have made, which

is entitled ‘Home For Christmas’. Their latest recording ‘Strictly Statler’, in which they cover many of the hit songs of the ever popular Statler Brothers including such favourites as Flowers on the Wall and Bed of Roses, is selling very well. It was released in Almonte Sept. 13. The Statlers disbanded in 2002 but their music remains timeless! As for the upcoming Christmas series, White advises interested music fans to get their tickets early. “These will be fun concerts. The crowd loves this kind of show. They (concerts) are going to be extremely popular,” he stresses. John Bowes says the proceeds from all three performances will go back to the communities involved. “The Almonte show is in support of the Alzheimer Society of Lanark County. The Shawville and Carleton Place shows will support the Pontiac Hospital Centre and the Carleton Place Hospital Foundation,” he outlines. “All of these organizations are so important to their communities. So during a time of giving this is our way of giving back,” Bowes states. In the past the Bowes Brothers did four performances for the Carleton Place hospital raising just under $30,000. Bowes credits one of his two partners in the Alan R. Barker Funeral Home, Wayne Bennett, for proposing that very successful concert series. The Barker Funeral Home has been a major sponsor of similar productions for years. Their involvement has led others in the community to join the effort. “Without all of our sponsors we couldn’t do what we do,” Bowes observes. “We sincerely thank all of them for their support. “We also thank the people of the communities involved for rallying to support these good causes.” Tickets for the afternoon presenta-

tion at the Almonte Arena on Sunday, Nov. 24 can be purchased at Keepsakes Gifts and Flowers in Almonte, at Nicholson’s Sundries in Pakenham or Gemmill’s Store in Clayton. Tickets can also be purchased by calling the Alzheimer Foundation of Lanark County office in Perth at 613-264-0307. Tickets for the evening performance in Carleton Place on Sunday, Dec. 8 can be purchased at SRC Music in Carleton Place, the Carleton Place Hospital Foundation office at Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital or at the Barker Funeral Home, 19 McArthur Ave., Carleton Place. Anyone interested in the Shawville presentation on Sunday, Dec. 1 should visit Murray’s Sporting Goods in

Shawville or telephone Jim Hodgins at 819-647-6563. Snacks and refreshments will be available during all three productions. Tickets are general admission and the doors will open one hour before the shows are scheduled to begin! John Bowes says he along with his three brothers and their father are really looking forward to the Carleton Place and Almonte shows. “This is our home. This is where we got started. We love performing for our hometown crowds.” For information about the upcoming concerts and the Bowes Brothers in general visit the band’s website: www. bowesbrothers.com or telephone 613253-5487.

passed at the Nov. 5 board meeting. The elephants signify that the CDSBEO cares about the wellness of others, and that the board is a safe place to talk about mental health, without fear of being looked upon differently, thought of less, or punished. The initiative will help to build understanding around mental health issues, and to build a board culture of empathy and support. The adoption of this campaign supports a larger, ongoing board-wide mental health initiative, which has fulfilled various stages of implementation since 2011. The board has developed, and is committed to building student resiliency through a strength-based approach, and a Continuum of Support with key prevention, targeted intervention and specialized supports. Resiliency surveys were introduced last year, which were completed by all students from grades 3 to 12, to gain insight into the board, school, and individual profiles, to recognize student strengths and to address students at-risk. For more information about this campaign, please visit www.mooddisorderscanada.ca.

The CCAC aims to assist children, youth, and their families through support services to prevent and reduce the personal, social and economic costs of mental health and addictions problems. Their role is to provide additional specialized supports for building resiliency and positive mental health. One of the deliverables for the provincial action plan on mental health includes the Mental Health and Addictions Nurses (MHAN) in district school boards program. Two nurses have been dedicated by the Champlain CCAC under this program, to complement the existing school and community support network in the CDSBEO. Primarily, the concerns which are being addressed by the MHANs include: assisting students in transitioning from mental health and addictions care back to school, managing and supporting school attendance for those experiencing mental health and addictions problems, and assisting with mental health and addiction literacy for school staff.

Diane Buckner addresses UCDSB summit about important trends

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Starting Nov. 10, the public can help support Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind by making a donation at any of the more than 635 LCBO stores throughout Ontario. Donation boxes for Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind will be displayed at LCBO checkout counters until Nov. 30. Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind was established as a registered charity in 1984. Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind has provided more than 730 professionally trained guide dogs to Canadians who are visually impaired from coast to coast. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We very much appreciate the support of LCBO through their donation box program, and especially their customers for donating during the campaign,â&#x20AC;? says Steven Doucette, spokesperson for Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind receives no government funding, so initiatives like this are extremely important in our mandate of providing guide dogs to visually impaired Canadians.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a good neighbour, LCBO is pleased to partner with Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind and support a variety of worthy causes,â&#x20AC;? says LCBO president and chief executive officer, Bob Peter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Through the generosity of LCBO customers and staff, we help improve the lives of countless Ontarians and make a difference where we live and work.â&#x20AC;? Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind is one of 28 provincial and numerous local charities that will benefit from LCBOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s province-wide donation box program in 2013. In 2012, LCBO raised a total of more than $6.6 million for charities through special programs and initiatives, of which $6.1 million was raised through in-store fundraising. In addition, LCBOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual dividend transfer to the Ontario government, which totaled $1.7 billion in fiscal 2012-13, excluding taxes, supports a wide range of important government programs, services and priorities, including health care and education. Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind thanks the public for its support when shopping at their local LCBO store from Nov. 10 to 30.

She told the audience about one company that has designed a fundraising program called Wealthy School Revolution. The product not only provides software to aid fundraising campaigns, but features items people will buy anyway from garbage bags to groceries. Authenticity is also a trend teachers must be aware of. Consumers are more critical of company and individual claims than they were in past. If a company promotes its food as grown within 100 miles of a supermarket, consumers will test the claim and keep them honest. People will no longer support companies that misrepresent their products. To demonstrate authenticity, she played a preview from an upcoming Dragons episode featuring a group of atrisk kids who grow their own ingredients through a market garden to create salad

To be sure you keep your tax bill as low as possible, tax and financial planning should be a year-round activity. But even now, as the time to file your 2013 tax return approaches, there are certain steps you can take to reduce your next tax hit. Capital gains and losses Sell money-losing investments by the December 31 settlement date to offset capital gains. If you plan to repurchase the assets you sold at a loss, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fall afoul of the superficial loss rules which will remove any tax advantage if you repurchase an identical capital property within 30 days after having disposed of it. RRSP contributions The contribution deadline for 2013 is March 3, 2014. RRSP contribution room can be carried forward indefinitely and you may want to consider deferring a deduction to a future year when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be in a higher tax bracket. RRSP withdrawals If you intend to withdraw cash from your investments held within an RRSP and expect your income to increase significantly next year, consider making the withdrawal before year end. If you turn 71 this year and are required to wind up your RRSPs before December 31, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tax-advantageous to transfer the funds to investments held within a Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF) or annuity.

dressings sold at area stores. A portion of the proceeds from their sales goes into a scholarship fund. Mobility is also an important trend â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the use of mobile devices in our lives. She notes that three quarters of all Canadians now have devices such as iPads and smart phones. Newspapers such as La Presse are restricting production to mobile apps. She suggested schools find ways to use devices in the classroom because this is the world in which students live. Other trends she discussed were: the concern for health and the drive to find products that will enhance health and extend life; the prevalence of social media and how people use it to monitor conversations about them, and customization â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the demand for specific products ranging from single-song iPod downloads to spe-

cialized coffee. Mhairi Rowland, a principal at Cambridge Public School, said she enjoyed the presentation because the UCDSB was taking action in many ways already to meet these trends. The board is using educational apps in the classroom in exercises ranging from math to music, is on social media, and is encouraging the use of mobile devices in student learning. In other summit news, director David K. Thomas held a news conference to discuss the summit and promote a unique partnership between the UCDSB and Palliser Regional Schools in Lethbridge, Alberta. The boards will work together to share best practices in order to increase efficiency and student engagement. Submitted by the Upper Canada District School Board

Year-end tax reminders and tips

Manage Your Money can also continue to make contributions for your spouse until he or she turns 71. Income-splitting Save on taxes by contributing to investments held within a spousal RRSP, through a pension-income split with a spouse, or by paying a salary to other (eligible) family members. Home Buyersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Plan (HPB) By delaying a withdrawal from your investments held within an RRSP under HBP until after December 31, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll extend the time period for purchasing a new home and for the first repayment by an additional year. Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) If your child is turning 15 this year and you want to ensure he or she will be eligible for the Canadian Education Savings Grant (CESG) in the years the child turns 16 and 17, by the end of the year you must be able to show that you contributed at least $2,000 to their investments held within an RESP (with zero withdrawals) or you contributed at least $100 for you child in any four year period (again, with zero withdrawals). Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) Make a $5,500 contribution to your

investments held with a TFSA. The contribution isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tax deductible but the money and interest earned inside your TFSA are tax-free and so are withdrawals, which can be made at any time for any purpose. Tax Deductions and Tax Credit Take full advantage of all that are available to you and make sure the items you claim were paid in the year they are claimed. These are just a few opportunities for year-end tax savings. Talk to your professional advisor to make sure youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not missing out on others.

LCBO stores raise funds for Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind this month

While she was hesitant to tell teachers how they should specifically adapt their practices, her goal was to have them reflect on how these trends are affecting society and how they might adapt their practices to improve student learning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope to get ideas percolating in your minds about innovation and trending and how they can influence you and how you can find ways to do things better â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or justify what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing now,â&#x20AC;? she told a crowded gymnasium. Gamification is the trend in society of people not just playing videogames, but learning with them, said Buckner. Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have said that gaming helps develop a number of life skills including: persistence, attention to detail, problem solving, and risk taking, she said. There are several businesses that have developed educational software to aid learning. Buckner showed a clip from Dragonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Den in which two men from Waterloo University â&#x20AC;&#x153;pitchedâ&#x20AC;? a math game which measures stress levels of players through wrist monitors and then adapts the difficulty of the questions accordingly. The correct answer rewards a player or â&#x20AC;&#x153;wizardâ&#x20AC;? in the game by allowing them to â&#x20AC;&#x153;cast a spell.â&#x20AC;? Buckner said she knows of one teacher who uses the game in his classroom with a student who had attendance problems. The student now arrives on time and is rewarded by getting to play the game. Another trend she spoke of was innovation or people finding ways to â&#x20AC;&#x153;think outside the box.â&#x20AC;? Businessmen are constantly seeking different ways to find new solutions to problems in designing products for the market.

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A nationally recognized business reporter told delegates to the 2013 Small School Summit Oct. 24 about trends in society they must be aware of and urged them to adapt their teaching style to meet them. Dianne Buckner, host of the CBC television hit Dragonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Den, gave a presentation to about 290 delegates entitled Seven Powerful Trends You Should Know About. The summit, entitled Innovate Now!, is designed to teach staff with the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) about innovative teaching practices to increase student engagement and results. Organizers are offering seminars on everything from yoga to teaching â&#x20AC;&#x153;real math.â&#x20AC;? The conference took place Oct. 24 and 25 at the Nav Centre. The CBC business reporter said major trends that affect the way we now live, learn and relate are: gamification, customization, high-tech health, innovation, social media, mobility, and authenticity.

Health unit develops new diseases toolkit Community – Every year many people in Lanark, Leeds and Grenville become ill with a communicable disease such as: Influenza, Lyme, Pertussis (Whooping Cough), Hepatitis C and Measles. Rapid access to information about key symptoms, laboratory testing and treatment can help health care providers provide the best possible care. The health unit has developed a new online resource to assist health care providers: http://www.healthunit.org/professionals/rd_toolkit/Reportable_Diseases.pdf. A simple click on any disease in the toolkit will take the user to an information page that includes: reporting requirements, epidemiology, risk factors, diagnosis and testing, treatment (under the direction of the health care provider) and case management, a patient fact sheet and additional resources with links attached. A QR (quick recognition) code allows the user to scan the information to a smartphone, iPad, or tablet. The 68 communicable diseases included in the reportable diseases toolkit are specified as reportable under the authority of the Health Protection and Promotion Act. This means that when patients are diagnosed with one of these diseases, their health care provider must report it to the health unit. The health unit uses this information to track trends in the community. “This new reportable diseases toolkit is a one-stop reference page for easy access to communicable disease information,” says Dr. Paula Stewart, Medical Officer of Health of the health unit. For more information, call 1-800660-5853 or visit www.healthunit.org.

Arts – One of the craziest, most entertaining, truly laugh-out-loud forms of theatre in the world is coming to Perth just in time for Christmas. And it’s possible you’ve never even heard of it. When people in these parts hear the word “pantomime” they’re likely to imagine a silent artist like Marcel Marceau, acting out a story without props, sound or speech. But if that’s what you think a pantomime is, the Studio Theatre is eager to set you straight with their production of Norman Robbins’ The Wonderful Story of Mother Goose. A traditional English pantomime is a theatrical force of nature: slapstick comedy, wild costumes, cockney slang, endless puns and one-liners, heroes, villains, dancing, singing, and at least one man dressed as a woman, all loosely based on a well known fairy tale, and usually staged at Christmas time. In other words, it’s pure family entertainment. As an audience member you’ll yell to the actors on cue, sing along with favourite songs, and generally become part of the fun. And like any good family show, this pantomime will captivate kids (as young as four) with music, colour and craziness, while making the older folk convulse with laughter. A quick sampling of dialogue from The Wonderful Story of Mother Goose: Mother Goose: Do you think there should be clubs for women like me? Evil Squire Creep: Oh yes (to the audience)...big heavy ones! Mother Goose: I’ve heard rumours that you’ve been telling everyone in the village I’m a flea-bitten, addle-pated, knock-kneed, cross-eyed nincompoop.

Of course the Canadian wine industry is also on the upswing. The Niagara Region and areas of southern British Columbia, in particular, are becoming more and more prominent, especially in terms of the quality of their wines. Of course we are not among the world’s big players. Canada’s population is too small. In 2011 we were listed 31st and 42nd in the world in terms of the volume of wine produced on two websites I read before writing this week’s column. The world numbers in general are inconsistent by the way. Evidently there is some jockeying between France and Italy in terms of which country tops the annual wine production list globally. Based on what I have discovered it is between those two countries. Sometimes Italy comes out on top and other years it is France. Most recently Italy, which is responsible for making approximately one-fifth of the world’s wine supply, appears to be the leader. The Top 10 wine producing nations is consistent but the order is not. Spain, Argentina and the United States are among the leaders. Germany is ranked as high as fourth on some lists, but never lower than 10th. Also among the leaders are China, South Africa, Australia and Chile. There is a difference between the amount of grapes grown and the volume of wine produced. Obviously other products, including nonalcoholic juice, are manufactured using grapes. When you visit the Alsace region of northeast France and the Baden

Lifestyle – Our travels this fall took us to two of the Top 10 wine producing nations in the world. For the first time in our lives we were in Europe at the height of the grape harvest. What an interesting experience it was! Before offering some details of what we saw in France and Germany in October I will write a little about how much access to wines from around the world has improved in this country. At one time in Canada, or certainly in Ontario at least, it was difficult to be a “wine connoisseur”. That’s because the availability of the world’s best wines was limited. I can remember the days when the Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO) had small outlets and in most communities customers had no direct access to any of the products they sold. Instead you went to the local LCBO and studied a list of the available products which was inscribed on tablets above a counter containing pads and pencils. You then had to write down the number(s) which corresponded with what you wanted to purchase (wine or spirits) and hand that to a clerk. In turn the employee would disappear into the storeroom at the back of the outlet, retrieve the items you selected and then ring them up at the cash register. There was no opportunity to pick up and study the available bottles of wine or liquor and decide what appealed to you. Talk to anyone who grew up in the 1950s, ‘60s or ‘70s and I’m sure they will laugh when you talk to them about the sequence which unfolded when we went to the liquor store. When it came to wine, for example, the majority of people had no idea what to look for and therefore it was a crap shoot, so to speak. You would buy a particular product and hope for the best. No Internet information to fall back on in those days! As a result most people didn’t have a clue about which wines were good and which were bad. Little wonder most folks’ early experience with wine in Ontario included products such as ‘Baby Duck’, ‘Baby Bear’ or some other “cuddly sounding” product. Don’t get me wrong. I am not knocking items that were once the toast of the Canadian wine industry. But at the time a lot of what was available here was fizzy, sweet tipple that I think was made in hopes of imitating Mateus, a rosé from Portugal. Mateus by the way was first manufactured in 1942 and is still available, in red and white versions. I think it’s safe to say that years ago it was difficult to have an appreciation for good wine because most of us simply weren’t exposed to the best. My, how times have changed! The LCBO is now the biggest importer of wine and spirits in the world. Yes, No. 1 on the planet! Canadians in general have unlimited access to wine and interest has never been higher. Now many Canadians are focused on vintage product which simply wasn’t available previously.

tle of the white wine. It was a 2007 and cost us all of €5 (about $8 CDN). At a Canadian winery we would have shelled out more than twice that much. Our bottle disappeared so fast at the family Thanksgiving celebration that I barely had a taste! Later that day, in the same area, we stopped to watch foreign workers harvest grapes on a hillside. The ruins of what was once a small chapel stood nearby. I took many photographs of the operation. On reflection they look like they could have been shot 50 years ago. The fall grape harvest in the Alsace continues the same way it has for centuries. The situation in Germany is virtually identical. The only difference is the Black Forest is more picturesque. Germany is undoubtedly most famous for its beer. But the wine produced in the Baden region is, as they say in Germany, “wunderbar” (wonderful). The magical village of Gengenbach where we stayed for eight days is surrounded by vineyards.

The local “Gengenbacher” wines are superb. I prefer red wine and I particularly enjoyed their “Spätburgunder Rotwein” (red wine made from pinot noir grapes). In fact I enjoyed it every day we were there. I also like their prices. You can buy a 750 millilitre bottle of wine in Germany for as little as €3 ($4.80 CDN). And that’s for a four or five-year-old vintage! Not surprisingly the amount and the variety of wine (including many bottle sizes) available in supermarkets in Germany and France is vast. Without the intrusion of constant government tax hikes the prices are low. Obviously drinking responsibly is very important and, despite more liberal attitudes toward alcohol in Europe, binge drinking remains a serious problem. Wine is meant to be savoured and enjoyed in moderation. We did just that during our latest European adventure. For me, witnessing the grape harvest there was a major highlight.

Bill to promote local food passes final vote News – Ontario is moving forward to help promote the good things that are grown, harvested and processed in Ontario with the passage of the Local Food Act, 2013 on Nov. 5. The new legislation is part of a strategy to build Ontario’s economy by making more local food available in markets, schools, cafeterias, grocery stores and restaurants. This will create jobs and expand the province’s agri-food sector. “The Local Food Act will benefit people by making the connection between buying local and helping grow an important Ontario industry,” stated Ontario Premier and Minister of Agriculture and Food, Kathleen Wynne. “If we increase demand to homegrown food, we will create jobs and boost the agri-food

sector’s contributions to our economy. It’s an important and historic step forward and I thank everyone who helped support this legislation.” The new legislation – the first of its kind in Canada – will increase local food awareness and boost sales by setting local food goals and targets in consultation with sector partners. The act will also create a non-refundable tax credit of 25 per cent for farmers who donate their surplus harvest to eligible community food programs such as food banks, and proclaim a Local Food Week that will take place annually, beginning the first Monday in June. Building a stronger agrifood industry is part of the government’s economic plan to support a dynamic and innovate business climate, invest

vegetables, livestock, dairy, poultry, grains and oilseeds. Food processors in Ontario purchase about two-thirds of the food that is produced on the province’s farms. Ontario’s Local Food Fund is part of a $30 million investment from the province to create jobs and support innovative local food projects over the next three years. “By raising the profile of local food, the Local Food Act will provide Ontario food and beverage processors with an opportunity to further develop local food systems and market development strategies,” said Steve Peters of the Alliance of Ontario Food Processors. “Ontario consumers are demanding high quality food and drink and our processors are willing and able to deliver,” he added.

in people and invest in agriculture. “The Local Food Act will serve as a constant reminder of the bounty of Ontario. The Ontario Federation of Agriculture is happy to see that it will target food literacy, local food use and will help farmers attend to the needs of others through a community food donation tax credit,” said the Ontario Federation of Agriculture’s Mark Wales. The Local Food Act will also require the government to produce an annual local food report on its activities to support local food. The province’s agri-food sector contributes approximately $34 billion to the economy and supports more than 740,000 jobs across Ontario; while farmers produce more than 200 commodities, including fruits,

Have a chance to win a pony for Christmas with Partridge Acres contest By KELLY KENT kkent@perfprint.ca

Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Every little girl dreams of owning her very own pony, and with Christmas approaching itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safe to bet that Santa has received a lot of requests to wrap one up with a bow to place under the tree. To take some of the stress off of Santa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and parents â&#x20AC;&#x201C; this year, a local Almonte farm is hosting its second annual Win a Pony for Christmas contest. Partridge Acres, located outside Almonte off of March Road, hosted the contest for the first time in 2012 and gave one lucky girl the chance to live out her dream of owning a pony. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about giving kids â&#x20AC;&#x201C; boys and girls â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the chance to bond with a pony for a year,â&#x20AC;? said Veronica Grajewski of Partridge Acres. The contest grants one lucky child the opportunity to have the experience of owning a pony without actually having to live on a farm, by allowing the winner to spend time with one of the resident Partridge Acres ponies once a week for a year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of kids donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the opportunity to spend time with horses,â&#x20AC;? Grajewski said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too expensive or the parents canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t commit the time needed so this is our way to give a kid the chance to really experience what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like to bond with one.â&#x20AC;? How to enter To enter the contest, children need to be between five and eight years of age by January of 2014, but no experience with horses is necessary. Grajewski said that the contest is aimed towards children who do not have the chance to be around horses regularly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to give children a chance to do something they might not otherwise be able to do,â&#x20AC;? Grajewski said. Entry is easy, she said: all the child needs to do is write a short story explaining why they would love to have a pony for a year. Parents are, of course,

Team

encouraged to help the younger ones write their stories. Finished stories can be submitted to info@partridgeacres.com before the Dec. 1 cut off date. Once the story submissions have been received, Grajewski will post them on their Facebook page. Then people can vote for their favourites. The story with the most votes will be named the winner of the contest and, on Christmas Day, one lucky child will have their wish of getting a pony granted by Grajewski and the others at Partridge Acres when the winner is announced.

dren how to deal with horses â&#x20AC;&#x201C; some of their students begin riding when they are just two years old. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a lot of young ones,â&#x20AC;? Grajewski said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surprising how good they can get when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re so little, but they really can learn a lot.â&#x20AC;?

Prize The child who wins the contest will win access to one of the Partridge Acres ponies once a week for a year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Basically itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just like having your very own pony,â&#x20AC;? Grajewski said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They can spend time brushing, feeding, grooming or riding the pony â&#x20AC;&#x201C; whatever they want.â&#x20AC;? Each weekly visit, which Grajewski said usually lasts around two hours, is supervised by a staff member at the farm, but children will quickly learn how to conduct themselves around the animals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They learn really fast,â&#x20AC;? Grajewski said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s incredible sometimes, the bond that young children can form with a pony.â&#x20AC;? The lucky winner will also have a chance to do fun activities, such as play games or go on trail rides with their pony. The pony that is chosen will be picked from the farmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 15 ponies based on the size, age and skill level of the child who wins. Partridge Acres Partridge Acres is located just outside of Almonte on John Kennedy Way. They have 28 horses in total, about 15 of them smaller, child-friendly ponies. The farm does riding lessons, hosts horse shows and summer camps and is well-versed with teaching young chil-

Veronica Grajewski of Partridge Acres, a local Almonte farm, stands with Belle, last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prize pony from the Win a Pony for Christmas contest. The contest gives one lucky boy or girl the chance to spend a few hours once a week at the farm with a resident pony for a full year, as if they really owned the animal. The contest is now open for submissions from children between the ages of ďŹ ve and eight and closes Dec. 1.

This is the second year that Partridge Acres is hosting their Win a Pony for Christmas contest. Last year, Brooklyn Kentfield, who was eight at the time, won the chance to get to know Babybel, or Belle, as they call her at the farm. Belle is a good-natured, small, white pony who has done her fair share of dealing with small children. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Belle has gotten married several times,â&#x20AC;? Grajewski said, adding that every year in the summer the farm hosts pony weddings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also been painted by children a few times. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very patient.â&#x20AC;? Brooklyn wrote a letter to Partridge Farms about her experience with Belle: â&#x20AC;&#x153;So this year has been one of the best. I remember the day when I woke up not feeling too great and I went to my momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s room to tell her I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feeling good and she told me I had won Babybel for a year. Suddenly I felt a lot better!â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just the riding her that I love, grooming her and giving her baths is amazing too. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also fun to look through the barn for her because sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too small to see through the stall bars. It was amazing. Having her was a great experience and I was lucky to have her and I hope the next winner will have a chance to love a pony as much as I did!â&#x20AC;? Winning a pony for a year would no doubt be a great experience for any child, but Grajewski said she encourages animal-lovers in particular to enter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are other animals here, like cats and dogs too,â&#x20AC;? Grajewski said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a chance for any child to create a bond with other animals and also with other children who have similar interests. It really can be a dream come true.â&#x20AC;?

and repeated that she would never reveal the names of the three individuals who, of their own volition, contacted her and said they have influence in Toronto, the ability to talk to people. She also noted they are not being compensated, and there was no tender. “They are not in any way connected with Carleton Place, except that they have the interest in moving the hospital project forward,” the mayor said. “Volunteering their services, their time, they contacted me as mayor of this community and said that they have the ability to help our community, help your hospital project move along.” Deputy mayor Ed Sonnenburg ap-

preciated the mayor’s clarification and could understand her acceptance of help, and even noted he would support a motion to pay a lobbyist (within reason), but only if it was an informed decision by council. Responding to comments on the carletonplace.com forum, the deputy mayor assured that council has not looked at, discussed or supported lobbying. “If this is a friendly situation, I have trouble with the term lobbyist,” Sonnenburg continued. “Lobbyist in today’s day and age has a certain meaning…” Antonakos said he felt attacked by the mayor for asking a question in council chambers. “I am offended,” he exclaimed. “I have put everything into hospital re-

development, since I got elected on this council. You are not the only one who works on behalf of the hospital.” As the mayor is a member of the hospital redevelopment committee, Antonakos questioned how the hospital is not involved in the matter. “You are intimately involved on every single level: as the mayor, as a member of the hospital redevelopment team, and someone who goes before the ministers in Toronto and makes pitches on our behalf,” he said. “To suggest something in front of a packed house with the media here, I think it is a reckless statement and it doesn’t help the cause.” “The hospital redevelopment committee has nothing to do with these people that I am working with in Toronto,” LeBlanc said.

Coun. Rob Probert commented: “I am surprised our council representative on the hospital board (Antonakos) would take this approach. I would have thought this type of discussion should take place in-camera to start with.” He said Antonakos challenged the mayor’s function and how she operates in her job. “I want to distance myself from this and give the mayor a hip hip hooray

for her efforts,” Probert added. Sonnenburg said the statements that were made and published on carletonplace.com and in the newspaper were made publicly. Therefore, he doesn’t have a problem with asking for clarification publicly. Coun. Jerry Flynn said the view of the public is that “we all knew about it.” “That was not the case,” he said. “It was a shock.”

Goal of business plan to make CP daycare financially self sufficient tgesner@perfprint.ca

News – Owing to the loss of the allday kindergarten program, daycare is one of three areas having a significant impact on Carleton Place’s 2014 municipal budget. The other two: policing costs, with a 2014 salary increase of 8.5 per cent, and the loss of an estimated $110,000 in provincial backing by way of the Ontario Municipal Partnership Fund (OMPF). At this time, six of the 17 rooms at the Francis Street daycare facility are vacant. According to treasurer Phil Hogan, the revenue stream from the town’s junior and senior kindergarten program was approximately $700,000, and the cost to watch those children was about $500,000. As a result, revenue somewhere in the quarter million dollar range was lost. Recently, Hogan, with input from daycare director Jacqueline Leach, put together a three-year business plan, with the goal of making daycare finan-

cially self sufficient. During the town’s budget discussions last month, Hogan reviewed the business plan with council. He noted the recommendations for year one have been incorporated into the 2014 draft financial document. “One thing we see having to do is increase user fees,” he said. In 2014, fees will increase 3.5 per cent, which adds $70,000 in revenue. “It’s not enough to handle the difference, but it does contribute,” Hogan said. During February’s Ontario Good Roads Association (OGRA) conference, which took place in Toronto, Mayor Wendy LeBlanc, Hogan and Leach met with Liz Sandals, Minister of Education, and Jim Grieves, Assistant Deputy Minister Early Learning Division of the Ministry of Education, speaking about increasing the child to teacher ratio by one child in the preschool program. “As an example, the number of preschoolers would go from eight to nine,” Hogan said. The operating costs for teaching

staff would remain the same, but the move would add to the direct revenue stream. “Adding just one child in each group that we currently have, would add $100,000 in revenue,” Hogan noted. “Unfortunately, provincial legislation controls these numbers, and the numbers are very different for schools than daycare facilities.” Another way to deal with the daycare deficit is transitional funding from the county. The town’s 2013 share was $76,000. The county’s chief administrative officer (CAO) Kurt Greaves recently sent LeBlanc an email confirming Carleton Place will get the same level of funding in 2014. “This is good news for us,” Hogan said. Another recommendation: utilization of the capitalization from the train station on Coleman Street. In 1993, daycare and Community and Social Services funded the renovations to the train station building. “It’s a capital investment that wouldn’t have been made if daycare

wasn’t (housed) there,” Hogan said, “and now that daycare is in the situation that it is, I believe we should use some of that investment to help them out.” The money ($78,000), to come from the municipality’s Tax Rate Stabilization Reserve (Hydro Reserve), could be applied to the 11-year debt remaining for the construction of the Francis Street facility. “We have a $120,000 yearly debt payment,” Hogan said. It cost $2.5 million to construct the new daycare building on Francis Street, and at the end of the December, there will be $1.1 million owing. “Through investment, we can provide some funding back to daycare, helping with the debt payment,” Hogan said. Lastly, the town will attempt to grow the business to make up the remaining $26,000 that’s needed for the $250,000. The standard daycare program costs $45 per day per child, which is approximately $10,000 to $12,000 annually. “We do currently have 90 children

right now, and 150 in the before and after school program,” Hogan said. “That’s 250 children.” Carleton Place also receive $25,000 a month from the county in child care subsidy dollars. Moreover, daycare is the beneficiary of any rents from the trainstation, which equates to $15,000 (net) yearly. At this time, the municipality’s draft 2014 budget shows a requirement of $184,000, equating to a 2.27 per cent increase. R0012341523_1003

Augusta Street Park splash pad enters Aviva Community Fund third round Community – The “Make a Splash in Augusta”, an effort of the Augusta Street Park Community Committee continues. Back in December of 2011 this group of dedicated citizens had their plan to revamp Augusta Street Park approved by council; a plan that includes a children’s splash pad. To this end, the group entered the Aviva Community Fund’s “contest” for funding. Community projects from

across Canada are vying for $1 million from the Aviva Insurance Company. Two rounds of voting have finished. The third round started on Nov. 11 and runs for two weeks. The group is hoping to make the semi-finals where, at the least, they will receive $5,000. Neighbours and friends of Augusta Street Park have rallied over the last two years with a fundraising

concert, summertime music events with potluck suppers and barbecues, the installation of community gardens and now a rally to raise funds for the splash pad element in the park. “Voting for our project on the Aviva website is a vote for bringing free money from outside the community here to help children inside our community,” noted committee member Barb MacInnis.

Member Linda Nilson, added, “There isn’t a splash pad in Mississippi Mills. So far we’ve had great support from the following service clubs: the Civitans, the Lions, and the Hub. Voting is a way that citizens can help out!” You can help to bring a splash pad to Mississippi Mills by voting on the Aviva website for “Make a Splash in Augusta”: http://www.avivacommunityfund.org/ideas/acf17271.

More units proposed for Almonte Country Street Seniors’ Residence kkent@perfprint.ca

News – Seniors in Mississippi Mills could soon have more opportunities to age in their hometown now that Mills Community Support has proposed a 20-unit expansion to the existing Country Street residence in Almonte. At the Committee of the Whole meeting held Nov. 5, Mike Coxon of Mills Community Support gave a presentation outlining phase three of the Country Street Seniors’ Residence, which will add additional units to the existing complex and possibly a seniors’ centre. “Our community is only growing and aging,” Coxon said during

his presentation. “It only makes sense that we continue to expand the services available to that portion of the population.” Mills Community Support, Coxon said, serves more than 600 seniors in Mississippi Mills. As part of their work, the group has built a residence for seniors on Country Street in Almonte. The residence is an independent living centre, not a retirement home, and some of the units are subsidized to help low-income individuals. Currently, the Country Street residence consists of two completed phases: the first phase included 50 units and was built in the ’90s; the second phase was completed in 2010 and added another 20 units.

Phase two was originally supposed to include 40 units and a seniors’ centre with a dining room, office and program areas, but due to a lack of funding and time the project was scaled back to 20 units. “We really took a hit with the funding for phase two,” Coxon said. Phase three of the plan will feature an additional 20 units and a seniors’ centre. The centre will be used for recreation, services and dining, Coxon said. In total, phase three of the plan will bring the number of units at the Country Street residence to more than 90. “We want to give seniors in Mississippi Mills the opportunity to age in place and stay in the town,” Coxon said.

As far as funding for the proposed expansion, Coxon said that the Mills does have a SEED grant from the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, but funds will need to come from a variety of other sources as well. At the end of his presentation, Coxon opened up the floor to hear questions and comments from the committee. Coun. Bernard Cameron asked why the Country Street residence needed to expand at all, since the committee received a proposal for a 120-unit seniors’ residence a couple of weeks prior to Coxon’s presentation. At the Oct. 15 meeting of Committee of the Whole, a proposal was brought forward for a 120-

unit seniors’ residence to be built on Patterson Street in Almonte. Cameron said he wondered if there would be enough demand to fill those units plus 20 more at the Country Street complex. Coxon answered by saying that, yes, there would be enough demand for the Country Street units because of one major difference: cost. “Frankly, our units will be much more affordable for seniors,” he said. Those proposed for Patterson Street, according to the presentation given to the committee, will cost an average of $2,600 per month. In comparison, the units at Country Street will cost around $1,000 or less. Currently, many of the units

at the Country Street residence are subsidized for lower-income seniors. They are rent-geared-toincome (RGI) units, meaning the residents pay what they can afford; in many cases, the residents are only paying a couple of hundred dollars per month. “This time, for phase three, we will not be including those types of units,” Coxon said, referring to the RGI units, “but they will still be within an affordable range.” Coun. Paul Watters said he thought the expansion was a good idea. “There’s always a waiting list to get into these places,” he said. “I say, the quicker they’re built, the better.” It is not known when construction is slated to begin.

Mississippi Mills council discusses rural lot creation policies in Official Plan By KELLY KENT kkent@perfprint.ca

News – Plenty of discussion and opposing opinions surrounded two connected items on the Mississippi Mills Committee of the Whole agenda Nov. 5. The committee spent almost 45 minutes discussing the two items, which involved a timeframe for the Community Official Plan five-year review and current rural lot creation policies. The first item that came up on the agenda was the Official Plan five-year review, prepared by town planner Stephen Stirling, which the committee was supposed to receive as information. Every five years, the town conducts a review of its Official Plan. Currently, the review is in stage two of the process, but at a council meeting in August of this year council asked town staff to evaluate a number of options regarding rural lot creation. Council members wanted to look at the possibility of changing the Official Plan to include more options for creating rural lots, such as loosened severance policies. A report was prepared by staff for the Nov. 5 meeting, and placed on the agenda as the item after the timeframe. “Shouldn’t we take a look at the report before we accept

the timeframe as information?” Coun. Bernard Cameron asked, stating that if they did decide to amend the Official Plan, the timeframe for the review would need to be altered. Council tabled the timeframe item and moved on to the rural lot creation report, which was also compiled by Stirling. The report evaluated three policies on rural lot creation, which council had asked staff to review at the August meeting: changing the policy to permit a third severance; changing the critical lot creation date; and reintroducing rural estate lot subdivisions. The recommendation put forward in the report, Stirling said, was “to maintain the current rural lot creation policies and to not change the Official Plan, as staff believed that they allowed for sufficient opportunities to meet the rural lot creation needs of the town.” There was a large group discussion regarding this recommendation. Coun. Shaun McLaughlin said he liked the idea of a third lot severance allowance on larger properties, but that it should be limited to two on smaller ones. Mayor John Levi said he wanted to take a look at changing the critical lot creation date. However, on the other side of the discussion, was Coun.

John Edwards. “This would be a change to the Official Plan,” he said. “That is a document that a lot of people worked really very hard to create. A change would be a substantial, fundamental and critical change.” He added that the current policies set out by the plan encouraged smart growth, not just growth in general, and that he felt there was no need to change them. Eventually, the recommendation put forward in the report was moved and seconded, but was ultimately defeated in a seven to three recorded vote. Next, Coun. Duncan Abbott moved for a policy change to include a third severance option. Almost immediately, Cameron asked for the motion to be withdrawn, saying that Stirling should have a chance to review his recommendation for a later meeting. “He is the planner for a reason,” Cameron said. “He should be allowed to amend his recommendation and do his job.” Levi then moved that a policy change be implemented to change the critical lot creation date from July 1, 1973 to July 1, 1993 or 2003, but he quickly withdrew it. After still more discussion, the motion presented by Abbott was defeated in a six to four recorded vote.

When that final motion was lost, the meeting’s chair, Coun. Denzil Ferguson, suggested that they discuss cluster lots and estate lots. Coun. Val Wilkinson moved two motions, both that staff review estate lots and cluster lots,

respectively, and bring reports to later meetings for discussion. Both were carried and Stirling has said he will prepare the reports. No amendments were decided upon at the meeting Nov. 5, but more deliberation will come be-

fore the review is over. Once they had dealt with the rural lot creation report, the committee jumped back to discuss the timeframe, which Stirling said was no longer reasonable with the extra reports that need to be created.

Carleton Place to implement injection program to combat Emerald Ash Borer By TARA GESNER tgesner@perfprint.ca

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Bug off! To deal with the highly destructive Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) beetle, the Town of Carleton Place will implement an action plan provided by its Urban Forest/River Corridor Committee (CPUF/RCC). Council carried the recommendation at its physical environment committee meeting Nov. 5. The move comes after the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) detected the EAB beetle at the cell tower on Cavanagh Road and the compost yard, which is located off

Patterson Crescent. An exotic bug, metallic green in colour, adults nibble on ash foliage, causing little damage. However, larvae feed on the inner bark of ash trees, disrupting the flow of nutrients as they ascend the trunk. In the end, the trees die. Carleton Place resident Jim McCready chairs the CPUF/RCC, and its action plan contains the following recommendations: conduct an inventory of municipal ash trees; commence an ash tree injection program in 2014 on select ash trees; develop a tree planting strategy; and develop a communication plan for the public, utilizing informa-

tion that has already been established. Last week council heard the municipality could expect a significant impact on its tree removal budget once the ash trees begin to succumb to the infestation. There are approximately 350 trees on municipal property. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You are looking at approximately $1,000 per tree for removal and replacement,â&#x20AC;? McCready said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $350,000.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right now, unless you get into an injection program, you will lose them all,â&#x20AC;? he continued. The CPUF/RCC has offered to assist with the injection program, which would begin in 2014 with the treatment

of 10 per cent of the 350 trees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The cost of injection is about $300 per tree,â&#x20AC;? said McCready, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and it must be done every two years.â&#x20AC;? The CPUF/RCCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recommendation for the first phase of the EAB beetle program can be accommodated within established budgets for 2014. Deputy mayor Ed Sonnenburg asked, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What trees make up the 10 per cent?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;You need to come up with a criteria,â&#x20AC;? McCready answered. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What trees are healthy, and you stay away from trees under hydro lines and ones that have dieback.â&#x20AC;? Dieback is the gradual dying of plant shoots, starting at the tips, as a result of

And so the spending begins

ditorial – Christmas is the best time of the year. Being with your loved ones, waking up early to open presents containing delightful surprises, watching your kids’ faces light up as they tear away the wrapping paper, spending the whole afternoon removing batteries from remotes around the house, trying desperately to assemble complex toys that are beyond your comprehension, coming down off the sugar high brought on by too much chocolate in the morning, travelling hundreds of kilometers to your relatives house to eat turkey two months after being forced to do so at Thanksgiving and the realization that months of planning, organizing and shopping have resulted in just a few hours of fun that hardly seem worth the hype. Christmas is a wonderful time of the year. People love to spend money and

what better excuse to blow large sums of it than for this celebration? Thousands upon thousands of dollars – gone! Where does it all go? How do you manage to max out a credit card in a single day? The joys of decking the halls! Every single television station in the country plans it perfectly. The week leading up to Halloween features nothing but spooky specials. The day after Halloween, the advertisements for the 20 top toys of the season take over the airwaves. It’s a very sneaky and well-played marketing ploy. Most people don’t even realize what’s happening until their children begin spewing out the names of toys they expect to see under the tree Christmas morning. “MOM! I want an Air Hogs Atmosphere!!!”

“DAD! I want a Zoomer robotic dog!!!” It never ends. The verbal Christmas lists could fill an entire book and the index page. It’s rather difficult, especially if your kids still believe in Santa, to explain that the Jolly Ol’ Elf had to fix his sleigh this year and pay for extra reindeer food because they’re all getting bigger. They have no concept of money, which is why marketing people are so genius. There are never any dollar amounts attached to those ads. Parents have to Google the toys just to figure out that the Air Hogs thing costs $30 and the Zoomer dog is a cool $150.

Ouch - poor mom and dad! The stores are no better – stocking their shelves with red, green, silver and gold the same day the Halloween stuff is marked down 50 per cent. Who can blame them? After all, these have not been the best of times. Still, it’s hypnotic. All those Christmas decorations are adorably irresistible. Little snowmen, singing Santas and cute reindeer figurines are hard to pass up as the holidays near, which they are. So get the credit cards out and prepare yourselves for outlandish final bills at the register. At least we’re all suckers together!

Textile museum showcases exciting works of Ottawa sculptor Oct. 22 to Dec. 21 Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; From Oct. 22 to Dec. 21 the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum (MVTM) will be hosting the exciting exhibit â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Unraveling Tension,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; which features the works of Bozica Radjenovic a sculptor who lives and works in Ottawa. She has had several solo and numerous group exhibitions in Canada and abroad. Born and educated in Belgrade, Serbia, she moved to Canada in 1993. For the works in this show, Radjenovic has traded the sculptorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s traditional tools for knitting needles and fibre. The results are sometimes huge works in vibrant yellows, reds and blues that take the everyday and turn it on its head. The material itself, as well as the names of some of the knitted sculptures, aims to create

Adjusting to a new country, the sculptor sometimes feels that she has lost a firm footing, her safe refuge, and thus some of her sculptures hover in space, interacting with even the slightest air flow. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My mother used to knit,â&#x20AC;? says Radjenovic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Her skillful hands made hats, sweaters and socks.

Historic and haunted Lake Park 1887 Lodge site of fundraiser Dec. 1 Park 1887 Lodge – Benny. “Benny is like a gangster,” he said, “and he hangs out in the area that is now the ladies washroom.” Bertrim noted the lodge’s notorious past, “from gangsters to gambling to affordable booze and violence.” The building has hosted American gangster Al Capone, professional boxer Jack Dempsey, prime ministers, hockey legends and other famous persons.

Whisperingsouls is located in Carleton Place, just before Innisville. Investigation Joined by Mason, a duo from HOPS visited Lake Park 1887 Lodge overnight on Oct. 20 to conduct an investigation. The following week, the Canadian Gazette spoke with the psychic medium and Bertrim. “That night we encountered a lady with a wide brim hat walking around the backyard with two children, a boy and girl,” said Mason. “We think she’s Ella Larsen.” Ella was the wife of Sven Larsen, one of the lodge’s previous owners. She was known for her hats, and the bigger the better. The Larsen family purchased the lodge, which had been abandoned, as well as the surrounding property in 1937. Nine years later, they restored the structure into a hotel and dance hall. It flourished. Unluckily, the lodge burned to the ground in 1956, and although it was rebuilt, it was never quite the same. The Larsen era was over. Mason mentioned another spirit inhabiting Lake

Community – On the shores of Mississippi Lake, tucked away in Beckwith Township’s famous Lake Park area is the historic and haunted Lake Park 1887 Lodge. On Sunday, Dec. 1, Whisperingsouls brings its second annual Spirit of Christmas to the lodge, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital (CPDMH) Auxiliary. The auxiliary raises funds to assist the hospital in every possible way, in the best interest of patient care and general operations. Spirit of Christmas festivities include a threecourse dinner, paranormal discussion with Haunted Ottawa Paranormal Society (HOPS) and a night of mediumship with Ken Mason of Whisperingsouls. Doors open for cocktails at 5 p.m. and dinner is served at 6 p.m. HOPS members take the stage around 7 p.m. to speak about the spirits that live within Lake Park 1887 Lodge, and shortly after 8 p.m., Mason, an internationally known psychic medium, delivers spirit messages to audience members by connecting with their departed loved ones. Furthermore, he talks about spirituality and gives a short lesson on psychic abilities. Unconnected to the price of admission, globally renowned, professional tarot card reader Donna Kinniburgh is offering readings throughout the day, starting at 10 a.m. Appointments are necessary. For pricing and to reserve a session, call 613649-8245. “Ken was looking at putting on an event and contacted us,” said the lodge’s new owner, Bryon Bertrim.

Protect yourself and others – get a flu shot this fall Flu season is upon us, so it’s time to protect yourself and others by getting a flu shot. Ottawa Valley Family Health Team family physician Dr. Susie Quackenbush answers some frequently asked questions about the flu shot. Who should get a flu shot? – “Everyone over six months of age should get the flu shot,” says Dr. Quackenbush. “The only exceptions are people with a true egg allergy, those allergic to other ingredients in the vaccine, and anyone who has had Guillain-Barré Syndrome, a rare neurological condition. If you are ill with a fever over 38.5 degrees, postpone getting the shot. If you have a mild cold, it’s fine to get your flu shot.” I never get the flu; why should I get a flu shot? – “Everyone can get the flu, and if you do, you will be very sick,” explains Dr. Quackenbush. “It is a bad illness, and complications from it can lead to hospitalization or death. Even if you don’t suffer complications, you will be contagious and could

infect people at high-risk for complications, such as children under age five, people over age 65, pregnant women and people with chronic medical conditions.” Dr. Quackenbush, who always gets a flu shot, said she caught the flu from a patient last year. “The vaccine may not prevent you from getting the flu, but you won’t be as sick,” she says. “A younger, healthy colleague of mine caught the flu from the same

patient. She had not had a flu shot, and she became so ill she was almost hospitalized.” Can I get the flu from the flu shot? – “Absolutely not,” says Dr. Quackenbush. “It’s not a live vaccine. You may experience some mild achiness as your body develops antibodies to fight the flu.” Where can I get a flu shot? – You can get your flu shot from your doctor, at a flu shot clinic or at participating pharmacies. At these pharmacies, specially trained pharmacists can administer the flu shot to people five years of age or older. Children under the age of five should receive the flu shot from a doctor or nurse. The Leeds, Grenville & Lanark District Health Unit will be administering flu shots at clinics in several locations between now and December 10. For more information, including a list of area flu shot clinics and pharmacies providing flu shots, visit www. healthunit.org or call 613-345-5658 or 1-800-660-5853.

Community – Always on the hunt for appropriate projects to support their charitable activities, the Almonte Lions Club has found a winning formula with their Friday night sit-down dinners, to which all residents of the area are invited. Last year, a small group of talented female Lions Club members planned a home-cooked meal. They agreed this meal should be made from scratch, served in four courses and accented with local entertainment. Following that formula, this season’s dinner planned for Nov. 22 will feature all that has made these dinners a success in the past, but with an added twist. Proceeds from the dinner itself will benefit the Lions Club’s various and vast charitable work, but many entertaining games and activities will be geared to educate the audience on prostate cancer. The Lions Club must ache (must ask) you to put away those razors and start growing your very best mo in recognition of Movember, an international campaign to fund prostate cancer research and other men’s health issues. The inspiration for this theme came from the event chairperson, Lion Kathryn Graham, RN. Knowing how important it is to bring the topic of men’s health to the forefront, Graham would like everyone to tap into their competitive side in this lighthearted way. So, gentlemen, start growing. The rules of Movember require participants to start clean-shaven on Nov. 1 and grow the most interesting mustache possible. Participants who attend the Lions Club dinner can enter their mustache

Proceeds will support Civitan Community Projects

Northern Harriers, Snow Buntings means winter is coming Start your Christmas shopping Strictly for the Birds LYNDA C. BENNETT

three years, likely due to the construction and road work that has taken place. Georgina Doe and I tried to spot them on Nov. 4, with no luck. We did tally two Red-tailed Hawks, one Roughlegged Hawk, and had superb views of a male Northern Harrier as he quartered a field for a meal. And a second bonus was two separate flocks of Snow Buntings on our trip. Sure signs that winter is coming. One bird we studied with a telescope was hidden too well behind branches to obtain a proper view of it. From shape,

colour, and form, we are certain that it was a resting Great Horned Owl. This area has always been an interesting place to check for hawks and owls in late afternoon. Visiting Peggy and Allan Stewart on Montgomery Shore Nov. 4, four Blackcapped Chickadees and three Whitebreasted Nuthatches dined at their feeders. On Mississippi Lake a few Canada Geese and Mallards were swimming, enjoying the open water. Peggy had to go into town, and when she came home, Allan told her of missing two Trumpeter Swans that came up onto their lawn. Several people have mentioned not seeing American Goldfinches lately, but there is still enough natural food for them to eat. Please call Lynda at 613-256-5013 or email bennett@magma.ca with bird reports.

Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; When I attended one of my study classes, a friend there reported spotting more than nine American Robins in her garden, 9th Concession, Blacks Corners, Beckwith Township on Nov. 3. Another observer from Carleton Place, Joel Glover, walking his dogs along the trail by the arena took pictures of a white-headed Robin. It is not often that we see partial leucism in a Robin. In Mississippi Mills, on Clayton Road, Cliff Bennett watched two Common Ravens harassing a Rough-legged Hawk as it flew over our house, Nov. 3. Two days later, a Pileated Woodpecker flew across the front yard, calling as it went. Ray Holland, of Pakenham, called to tell of observing three Short-eared Owls along Earl Armstrong Road, behind Ottawa airport at the end of October. These owls have not been seen there for two or

to discuss the state of the sludge within the lagoons. They decided that leaving the sludge in the lagoons was a viable option but required more backup information. After sampling the lagoons several times, Geofirma and the Ministry of Environment came up with three options for the state of the lagoons in the future. The first option, Stirling said, is to remove the sludge and deposit it in a landfill. This would open up the land for other uses, but it is the most costly option out of the three. The second is to remove the sludge and use it for application on agricultural fields. Stirling said this proposal would also open up the land for other uses and is the second most expensive of the three. The third and cheapest option is to leave the sludge where it is, onsite. This option gives no opportunity to use

By KELLY KENT kkent@perfprint.ca

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; At the Nov. 5 meeting of Mississippi Mills Committee of the Whole, the company, Geofirma, gave a presentation on the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s options as far as decommissioning the wastewater lagoons in Almonte. Now that Mississippi Mills has a wastewater treatment plant, the wastewater lagoons are no longer necessarily needed. The town has hired Geofirma to assess the potential options that could occur. Sean Stirling of Geofirma spoke to the committee, outlining their research and their initial findings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have come up with three options,â&#x20AC;? Stirling said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of which are viable and comply with the Ministry of Environment.â&#x20AC;? The process of researching the lagoons began in 2012, when the company met with the Ministry of Environment

the land for something other then waste disposal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are pros and cons to all three options,â&#x20AC;? Stirling said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s some good and some bad with each.â&#x20AC;? In the current Official Plan for Mississippi Mills, the land that the lagoons sit on is designated for waste disposal, so leaving the sludge onsite would require no bylaw change. If the town were to remove the sludge to either a landfill or for agricultural use, the land could be re-designated to residential or parkland space. To do that, the town would require a Record of Site Condition with the Ministry of Environment. Geofirma also recommended that the town reduce the size of Cell A of the lagoons in 2014 and to reduce the extent of standing water in 2015. No decisions were made regarding the use of the lagoons at the Nov. 5 meeting; the report was received as information only.

The psychic medium explained Willy was murdered, pushed down the basement steps over an unpaid gambling debt and â&#x20AC;&#x153;had the boots put to him.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The time period from 1902 to 1935 was the wildest,â&#x20AC;? said Bertrim. HOPS garnered 48 hours of video over eight and a half hours on Oct. 20. Six cameras were used, along with electromagnetic field (EMF) meters and equipment to capture electronic voice phenomena (EVP). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Enough evidence was gathered to bring back the whole HOPS team,â&#x20AC;? said Mason. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We heard noises and footsteps, and one spirit even refused to identify itself to me,â&#x20AC;? he continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love it,â&#x20AC;? said Bertrim. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It validates the history of the place.â&#x20AC;? In the beginning, a two-story hotel was constructed on site, and local hotelier Peter Salter later rebuilt it as a luxury four-story facility, calling it the Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Royal Hotel. It offered white linen service, room service, a sandy beach and panoramic view of the lake, in addition to a number of modern conveniences â&#x20AC;&#x201C; running water, private bathrooms, etc. The hotel was a 30-minute ferry ride from Carleton Place. A fire shut it down in 1919, but it was reconstructed and named the Lake Park Lodge. Bertrim took ownership of the lodge this year,

St. John Ambulance launches $350,000 capital campaign project By TARA GESNER tgesner@perfprint.ca

News – Health is the most important thing in life. St. John Ambulance enables Canadians to improve their health, safety and quality of life by offering a number of training and community services. “This is not an operation where someone shows up with a knapsack,” said David Dargie of St. John Ambulance – Leeds, Grenville & Lanark Branch. “Whenever we do our duties, we have fully-equipped vehicles ready to operate in a fashion like emergency response would.” Dargie is the Caring For Our Community campaign co-ordinator. Dargie and Shane Savage attended Carleton Place Council on Oct. 8, speaking about the preparations for their organization’s 2014 capital campaign, in addition to the need for a stronger St. John Ambulance presence in the area. Located in Brockville, St. John Ambulance – Leeds, Grenville & Lanark Branch – was founded in 1959. “There is only one paid staff member in our organization,” said Dargie. “We have very low administrative costs.” In fact, the yearly budget of the St. John Ambulance – Leeds, Grenville & Lanark

Branch is $155,000. “We receive no direct government funding,” said Dargie. In addition to grants and donations, the organization receives some money for services provided. “The only other way is for us to go out and raise the funds ourselves,” said the campaign co-ordinator. St. John Ambulance offers first aid, CPR and (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) AED (automated external defibrillator) training, medical first response, youth and therapy dog services and car seat safety. “St. John Ambulance is the gold standard when it comes to first aid, CPR and AED training,” said Dargie. “We are medical first responders for community events,” said Savage. “The main point of us being there is that we can save an ambulance call 99.9 per cent of the time.” “We utilized St. John Ambulance at last month’s Brett Pearson Run for Your Life,” said Coun. Jerry Flynn. “We appreciate that. Thank you!” “We have three fully stocked ambulances,” said Savage, “and when we go out into the community, we can provide the best level of care.” St. John Ambulance – Leeds, Grenville & Lanark Branch has roughly 30 volunteer members

(nurses, paramedics, etc.). “These people did 10,000 volunteer hours last year,” said Dargie, “and for two years in a row, our branch has been honoured provincially for number of volunteer hours per person.” “In my personal opinion, the people doing the best job are quite often the least recognized,” said Deputy Mayor Ed Sonnenburg. “We are happy to come and talk to you tonight,” said Dargie. “I hope we are early in the budget process.” “The town has a grants committee, rather than run things through our municipal budget,” said Sonnenburg. “I am seeing more of a need for St. John Ambulance,” said Dargie. The four closest branches are Brockville (Leeds, Grenville & Lanark), Cornwall, Kingston and Ottawa. “If there is any interest in Carleton Place establishing a branch, we would love to sit down and talk to you,” said Dargie. “Not only is there an aging population, but you are in close proximity to a major thoroughfare.” “I would echo your comments about a Carleton Place branch,” said fire chief and director of protective services Les Reynolds. “As far as I am concerned, there is a sizeable

gap (geographically).” Capital campaign On Feb. 14, 2014, Valentine’s Day, St. John Ambulance – Leeds, Grenville & Lanark Branch will officially launch its Caring For Our Community fundraising campaign, with a celebratory breakfast at CJ’s Banquet Hall in Brockville. The goal of the campaign, which runs from February to September, is $350,000. “We have put together a capital campaign,” said Dargie, “and we are going around to all the municipal governments in Leeds-Grenville and Lanark counties, asking for an investment that will pay off in the future for their communities.” By way of the campaign, St. John Ambulance – Leeds, Grenville & Lanark Branch will dissolve the current mortgage on St. John House in Brockville ($175,000). “This would give us $15,000 yearly to spend on operating costs,” said Dargie. Furthermore, the organization would construct an enclosure on its Abbott Street property to protect its service vehicles from the weather. “Right now, they sit outside through the winter,” said Savage. “They are getting old. One ambulance is a 2001 (model), the other two are

2004 (models).” “We have a strong campaign team that will be supplemented by the members of our brigade and our many friends and supporters throughout Leeds-Grenville and Lanark counties,” said Dargie.” The cabinet is as follows:

Richard M. Dumbrille (chair) of Maitland; Sandra Lawn of Prescott; Craig McQuitty of Ottawa; Jim Fairfield, Doug Labron and Margaret Wicklum of Brockville; Jodi Wallace (St. John Ambulance – Leeds, Grenville & Lanark Branch office administrator); and Dargie.

Community – Following the Oct. 27 Sunday morning service at Guthrie United Church in Clayton, those present along with Rev. and Mrs. Rodney Bennett assembled in front of what remains of the first Presbyterian Church in Clayton. It was built in 1873, 140 years ago, and named after the famous Scottish preacher Rev. Dr. Thomas Guthrie who had passed away that year. The present Guthrie United Church was built in 1897 and the first church became the Forrester’s Hall, then the Community Hall, for many years prior to the opening of the present Community Hall in 1978.

Columnist offers advice on four-wheeling and keeping distractions off the road

As far as the differing opinions youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting regarding four-wheel drive usage it boils down to: a little from column A and a little from column B. Most light duty trucks no longer have a solid front axle but a differential with flexible CV (constant velocity joint) style front axle shafts similar to those used on front-wheel drive autos. These reduce much of the driveline harshness that plagued traditional solid axle units. If you engage your truck in 4WD and then try to take a tight corner, you will feel some jerky resistance in the steering as the speed of the inside road wheel over-takes the speed of the driveshaft. This is what can damage 4WD components if done regularly over a period of time. But your truck should easily make wider turns in 4WD without a problem, no matter what type of surface itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rolling on. Therefore itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a bad idea to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;exerciseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; the system once a month or so, on a portion of your regular commute without sharp turns. Keep in mind this does have a negative effect on fuel economy. A 10 or 15-minute drive should suffice. If your 4WD system has a low range, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d suggest trying that out monthly but only for a few yards at low speeds. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve included the relevant section (below) from your vehicleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

Do not drive on clean, dry pavement in FourWheel Drive High or Four-Wheel Drive Low for extended periods of time.â&#x20AC;? Distracted driving Ford of Canada recently commissioned a survey on distracted driving habits and the results arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t promising. The poll was completed by Leger from Aug. 9-16 involving a total of 528 young drivers (16-19 years of age) and 528 parents who have a teen driver in their family. According to the results: â&#x20AC;˘ 93 per cent of teens and 97 per cent of parents admit to distracted driving even though they know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dangerous, â&#x20AC;˘ 72 per cent of teens and 67 per cent of parents use hand-held technology, such as texting and talking on the phone, while behind the wheel. â&#x20AC;˘ In Ontario, 73 per cent of teens and 62 per cent of parents admitted to using hand-held technology while behind the wheel. The only promising note was that one in five teens and parent (20 per cent) report they are using voice-activated, handsfree technologies most or all of the time over a handheld device. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want people to be aware of the dangers of distracted driving and help them develop safer driving habits,â&#x20AC;? said Dianne Craig, president and CEO, Ford of Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ford is deeply committed to driver safety. Technologies such as MyKeyÂŽ and Ford SYNCÂŽ have important roles to play in limiting distractions and helping to change behaviours.â&#x20AC;? The available Ford MyKeyÂŽ system features a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do Not Disturbâ&#x20AC;? function which blocks incoming calls and deters text messages. Calls are diverted to voicemail and text messages are saved on the device for later viewing. MyKeyÂŽ also has the ability to set a maximum speed level, limit the volume on the sound system, and disable the sound system altogether until seatbelts are buckled. More auto makers should be of-

Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dear Mr. Turner, I always enjoy reading your column and advice. I wonder if you would kindly provide some guidance regarding the use of four wheel drive vehicles. I am an owner of a new 2013 GMC Sierra pick-up equipped with electronic 4 wheel drive control. I am told, and I read, that the 4 wheel drive should not be used unless driving on gravel roads or uneven terrain. Others say there is no ill effect driving 4 wheels anytime no matter the road conditions. With winter approaching, any advice you can provide would be appreciated for driving in snow or wet road conditions then for dry summer road conditions. Would you also explain the effect, if any, using 4 wheel drive could have on the vehicleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s transfer case in certain road conditions and is there a need to exercise the 4 wheel drive train from time to time. Thank you so much, I look forward to your kind reply and advice.â&#x20AC;? Best regards, Vince

PITTMAN, Ellwood – In loving memory of my dear husband who passed away November 12, 2012 I remember the day I met you, And the day God made you mine, I remember the day God took you, And will til the end of time. And when I’m sad and lonely And everything goes wrong, I seem to hear you whisper, “Cheer up and carry on”. Each time I see your picture, You seem to smile and say, “Don’t cry I’m only sleeping, We’ll meet again someday”. I miss you each and every day, Love Hilda ~ In loving memory of our dear Dad and Poppa. Remembering you is easy, We do it everyday, It’s the heartache of losing you, That will never go away. Love Rodney, Lisa, Angela and families

BISONETTE, Alma - In loving memory of a dear Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother, who passed away November 16, 2011. A message to Mother in Heaven. We are sending a dove to Heaven With a parcel on it’s wing, Be careful when you open it It’s full of beautiful things. Inside are a million kisses Wrapped in a million hugs, To say how much we miss you And send you all our love. We hold you close within our hearts And there you will remain, To walk with us throughout our lives Until we meet again. Always remembered, The Family

IN MEMORIAM

GRAY, William C. (Bill) – In loving memory of a dear husband, father and grandfather who passed away so suddenly and unexpectedly Nov. 13, 2010. Our lives go on without you But nothing is the same, We have to hide our heartaches When someone speaks your name. Sad are the hearts that loved you, Silent the tears that fall, Living our lives without you Is the hardest part of all. You did so many things for us Your heart was kind and true, And when we needed someone We could always count on you. The special years will not return When we were all together, But with the love within our hearts You will walk with us forever. Forever loved and dearly missed Pat and families

LEESON, Lyle – In loving memory of a dear husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather, who passed away November 14, 2011. A million times I’ve needed you A million times I’ve cried, If love could have saved you You never would have died. Things we feel most deeply, Are the hardest things to say, My dearest one, I love you, In a very special way. If I could have one lifetime wish One dream that could come true, I’d pray to God with all my heart For yesterday and you. Always in our thoughts Love You Always Kay and Family

EASTMAN – In loving memory of a dear husband, father and grandfather Arthur who left us November 17, 2011.

How will you spend your extra hour? Lifestyle – Now that clocks have fallen back and Canadians have the rare luxury of an extra hour, people across the country will be deciding how they will spend their precious gift of time. A Standard Life Value of an Hour Survey conducted for Big Brothers Big Sisters shows how busy Canadians actually are and what they would do if they had an extra hour each week. Consider how your time preferences compare. Standard Life Value of an Hour survey findings: • One in five Canadians (15 per cent) are so time deprived they would use their extra hour to sleep • One in three (33 per cent) would strengthen personal relationships by spending time with family and friends • Nearly two in ten (17 per cent) would focus on their health by exercising • More than one in ten (13 per cent) would finish household errands • One in ten (11 per cent) would pursue personal interests and hobbies • Less than one in ten (six per cent) would devote an extra hour to community service • Only four per cent would spend their extra hour working “The study shows how badly time-stressed Canadians need to make more time for their needs,” says Bruce MacDonald, president and chief executive officer (CEO). of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada. “The fact that people have to forgo something as personally enriching as family time or volunteering shows we often pay too high a price for the hectic pace of our lives. Imagine what would happen if everyone could free up even a little time each week to help others. Communities and individuals would be transformed for the better. The evidence for time as a barrier to volunteering is compelling. The Standard Life survey found that 66 per cent of Canadians would most likely volunteer if their personal schedule was less hectic. Almost two thirds (65 per cent) indicated they were likely to volunteer provided only a small time commitment was

required each week. Almost half (45 per cent) reported that lack of time was the biggest barrier stopping them from working in their communities. Canadians also know that their busy schedules exact a high toll on their quality of life. Nearly two thirds (62 per cent) agreed that they are so busy that they sometimes think life is passing them by. “This survey sends a clear message to Canadian charities starved for volunteers: there’s a huge pool of potential volunteers out there provided volunteer opportunities are tailored to busy schedules,” says MacDonald. “At Big Brothers Big Sisters, for example, we have introduced a range of popular volunteer opportunities, such as in-school mentoring, that involve only one hour a week.” Few organizations understand the power that volunteering has in bringing people on a path to personal satisfaction and happiness better than Standard Life. For the past four years, the company has focused much of its community support on inspiring Canadians to become youth mentors through Big Brothers Big Sisters. When it comes to the personal rewards of volunteering, Canadians get it. Among those polled who currently volunteer, virtually all (99 per cent) rated the experience as either very satisfying (70 per cent) or somewhat satisfying (29 per cent). “When individuals give of their time to the community, everybody wins. The charities they support benefit. Studies show that people who volunteer are healthier and happier and, as employees, they’re more engaged and more receptive to learning new skills,” says Charles Guay, president and CEO of Standard Life in Canada. “A single hour can change many lives. We hope these survey findings will inspire Canadians to make time to volunteer.” Methodology The survey was conducted by Ipsos Reid from Sept. 19 to 24. A sample of 1,011 Canadian adults from Ipsos’ online panel was interviewed. Weighing was employed to ensure the sample’s

composition reflects that of the adult population according to census data and to provide results intended to approximate the sample universe. The precision of online polls is measured using a credibility interval. In this case, the poll is accurate to within ± 3.5 percentage points had all Canadians been polled. About Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada For one hundred years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has been making a positive difference in the lives of Canada’s youth by developing and implementing a wide range of mentoring programs. BBBS volunteer mentors teach by example the importance of giving back, of staying in school, and of respecting family, peers and community. BBBS provides quality mentoring services for more than 40,000 children and teenagers. The community-based youth mentoring organization currently has more than 25,000 volunteer mentors working at 118 agencies that serve children in more than 1,000 communities across the country.

It is the largest operation outside of the United Kingdom of Standard Life plc, its parent company headquartered in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Mary Cook’s mother’s chili sauce recipe Lifestyle – Ever since Mary’s column of a couple weeks ago about the popularity of her mother’s chili sauce, we have been deluged with requests for the recipe. It follows, with a few brief comments from Mary herself: “I am happy to share my mother’s recipe for chili sauce. I found the recipe again, and it is dated 1938, so it really is a Depression recipe. It may not differ that much from the recipes of today, but we sure ate it with great gusto back then. There should be plenty of ripe tomatoes at the super markets and at the Farmer’s markets, so they and the onions

should still be available. Here then, is the recipe.” Mary’s mother’s chili sauce: Ingredients: 12 large ripe tomatoes, two large onions, four green peppers, two tablespoons salt, 1/2 cup white sugar, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1 tsp. ground cloves, 2 1/2 cups white vinegar. Method: plunge the tomatoes briefly in hot water, so that they can be peeled easily. Peel the onions, and remove the seeds from the green peppers. Chop all of this fine. Stir everything together, and then add the salt, sugar, cinnamon, cloves and vinegar. Cook on low heat, and slowly, for about 50 or 60 minutes (I

think closer to the 60 minutes is better, because you want it thickened). Stir it occasionally while it is cooking. Pour into hot and sterilized jars, and seal tightly. “Now, that is my mother’s recipe. What wasn’t included in her recipe, but I remember her doing, and I have no idea why she did it – but once the sauce was put in the jars, she turned the jars upside down on the bake table for about a day. This was before storing them on the shelves in the dugout cellar. But when I had to go down into that dark and dank hole to get a jar, they were always upright on the shelf.”

Mississippi View: What’s making news in Mississippi Mills this week By KELLY KENT kkent@perfprint.ca

News – Here’s what you need to know in Mississippi Mills this week. From the Mississippi Mills town council meeting Nov. 5: Council size referendum Committee of the Whole has passed a motion recommending that staff prepare the necessary bylaw to hold a referendum regarding the size of council by including a question on the 2014 municipal election ballot. The question that will enter into the bylaw for consideration by council will read as follows: “Given that town council is currently composed of 11 members, do you support a change in the composition of council

beginning in the year 2018 to seven members, with a mayor and deputy mayor elected at large, one ward councillor for Pakenham, two ward councillors for Ramsay and two ward councillors for Almonte? Yes or no.” If a bylaw is passed and the question is included on the 2014 ballot, council will be obligated to initiate a change if it is supported by 50 per cent or more of the voting population. The bylaw will be brought forward at the council meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 3 at the Mississippi Mills municipal offices. ATV bylaw A bylaw allowing and governing the use of all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) on all highways under the jurisdiction of Mississippi Mills was passed

by the town council Nov. 5. The bylaw is extensive and covers the definition of which ATVs are allowed on roads, what qualifications a rider needs to have to legally drive them on the road and rules and regulations outlining curfew among other things. TYPS update The new director of Take Young People Seriously (TYPS), Natalie Dalton, who took over in September, gave a presentation on what the organization has been doing in 2013. She spoke about the expanded programming TYPS has been introducing over the last few years. “We’ve added tons of new programs for the kids,” Dalton said. “We’re really proud of the progress we’ve been making so far.”

In 2010, programming at TYPS included after school snacks and special events and has expanded to fundraisers, dances and cooking programs. Dalton said TYPS now sees more than 5,000 visits from kids a year, which is good for the organization, but can mean that teens are feeling more stress than before. “Kids are showing more mental health red flags,” Dalton said. “We’ve seen kids who are drinking, binge eating, cutting or burning themselves.” Dalton also said that TYPS needs help with staffing. “We’re understaffed,” she said. “Often we have one adult supervisor to 50 or more kids. It means that we can’t spend the time one-onone with them that we may need to.”

Canada Day car show Committee of the Whole has recommended that council approve a request to close Mill Street and Little Bridge Street in Almonte on Canada Day in 2014 to accommodate an Antique Car Show. Tiffany MacLaren, the community economic and cultural co-ordinator for the town, prepared the request for the Nov. 5 meeting, saying that a car show that day will help to draw people to the downtown core to shop and attend the celebrations.

provisions currently within the town’s Official Plan. The bylaw will enable the town to enforce and regulate site alteration within areas designated as ANSI sites, which Stephen Stirling, the town’s planner, said became an important issue after the town received a complaint that a significant amount of clearing had been done on an ANSI site. It is the responsibility of the municipality to protect these lands.

Site alteration bylaw Committee of the Whole has also recommended that council direct staff to prepare an Area of Natural and Scientific Interest (ANSI) Site Alteration bylaw, which will give the town a way to enforce the environment protection

Canadians knock off Raiders, Jr. Senators to pad overall lead Sports – The gap continues to widen atop the Central Canada Hockey League standings. The Carleton Place Canadians are showing the way after dispatching two of their closest CCHL rivals last week. In front of close to 500 hometown fans last Friday night, they broke open a tight game with three quick goals in the second period en route to a 5-2 win over the Nepean Raiders. Two days later, backed by a 25-save performance from goalie Guillaume Therien, the Canadians edged the Ottawa Jr. Senators 3-2, this time in front of 533 supporters. Carleton Place, with an impressive record of 22-5-0-1 for 45 points, finds itself 10 points clear of their closest pursuers – Smiths Falls Bears (16-8-3-0) and Pembroke Lumber Kings (16-7-1-2). Friday at the Neelin Street Community Centre, the Raiders limited the dynamic duo of Evan Peterson and Andy Sturtz – the top two scorers in the CCHL – to a single goal between them. This time, Craig Pefley (three assists) and Larry Smith (one goal, two assists) did much of the heavy lifting, with Adam Lloyd and Brett D’Andrea each collecting a goal and assist. Tied 1-1 in the second period, the Canadians connected

on three goals (Peterson, Lloyd and Smith) over a six-minute stretch to take command. The outburst chased goalie Ryan Mulder who’d faced 19 shots to that point. Raiders veteran defenceman Michael Vered brought the visitors back to within two with a power play goal at 15:56, but D’Andrea put it away with his ninth goal of the season 6:23 into the third period, beating Raiders’ back-up Brett Magnus. While he didn’t get on the scoresheet (just the third time in 28 games that’s happened), Sturtz asserted himself in another way, squaring off with the Raiders’ Josh Zizek at 7:08 of the third. The fisticuffs earned both a five-minute major and game misconduct. Therien was solid again for the Canadians, making 24 saves off 26 Raiders shots. He is 4-1 with a 2.21 goals against average since coming over from Hawkesbury in a trade last month that sent Cory Simic to the Hawks. Sunday was another entertaining affair. After a scoreless first, Luke Edwards and Stephen Baylis gave the Canadians a short-lived 2-0 second period lead with goals at 0:53 and 17:33. Just five seconds after Baylis’ marker, Zackary Rheaume gave the visitors new life with his second goal

of the season. Evan Peterson restored the home side’s two-goal edge, a power play goal just 1:03 into the third period. That lead held up until the final minute when, with goalie Alexandre SavardBelanger pulled for an extra attacker, Rheaume scored his second of the game to pull Ottawa within one. It made for an interesting final 55 seconds but the Canadians held on. Therien received first star honours with Andy Sturtz, who collected a pair of assists, named second star. Extra shots • The Canadians have two games this weekend, opening with a visit to the Brockville Memorial Centre on Friday night for a date with the Braves. Opening face-off is 7:30 p.m. On Sunday, Nov. 17, they return home to face the slumping Cornwall Colts. Puck drop is 3 p.m. • While his team didn’t do particularly well at this year’s World Jr. A Challenge, Canadians defenceman Kelly Summers had a solid tournament with two goals and two assists in the four games. Unfortunately, Team Canada East dropped games to the U.S., Russia, Switzerland and Czech Republic and failed to reach the semi-finals. The U.S. won the title with a win over Russia in the final.

Thunder streak snapped at three By STAFF

Sports – Almonte Thunder saw their three-game winning streak come to an end with a pair of losses over the weekend. Having recorded big victories over Clarence Beavers, Arnprior Packers and Stittsville Royals the previous two weeks, the Thunder gave the Gatineau Mustangs everything they could handle last Friday at the Buckingham arena but ultimately dropped a 4-3 decision in a shootout. Mikael Gervais of the Mustangs beat Thunder goalie Dominic Plaschy for the decisive goal in the fourth round. Despite the loss, the Thunder did pick up a point in the standings by forcing the game to overtime. At 5-6-0-3 and 13 points, Thunder sit in a tie for fourth with the Perth Blue Wings in the tight EOJHL Valley Division standings. Andrew Rowbotham, Justin Marquis

Clockwise from top left: Jim Plumb lays a wreath at the cenotaph in Memorial Park on behalf of all veterans; Legion members pay their respects; Second World War veteran Frederick Dunlop of Carleton Place stays warm while taking in the Nov. 11 service. He served from 1940 to 1945; Royal Canadian Legion Branch 192’s Colour Party with flags flying high, marching along Veterans Way (Franklin Street) on their way to the cenotaph; and ‘The Last Post’ is played, the traditional salute to the fallen soldier.

The Mills partners with Big Brothers Big Sisters on mentoring program Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lanark County, Mills Community Support and Holy Name of Mary School have partnered in creating an intergenerational program for the seniors and children of Almonte. Mentoring a child at a young age has been shown to increase the childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s selfesteem, self-confidence and self-worth. Seniors or recently retired individuals have a wealth of experience and knowledge to share with children in a school setting. The mentors will be paired with a child who they will meet with for an hour once a week at the school. During their hour together the mentors will engage their mentees in a variety of activities that have been mutually agreed upon. These actives may include arts and crafts, reading, playing cards or board games, cooking and

baking or playing in the gym. Following these sessions the seniors will gather for the opportunity to have coffee and to share their experiences with each other in a social setting. The program will run from January to June 2014 for a total of 22 weeks. All mentors will be screened in accordance with the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada National Standards by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lanark County mentoring coordinators. Mentors are caring, supportive, and non-judgmental, with a keen interest in the welfare of young people. Their role is to be an adult companion, a positive role model, a friend, a listener, a limit setter and a resource or guide. The mentees are children ages seven to 14 who have been identified by the school as requiring the need of a mentor. The children may require assistance in

You Can Never Have Too Much of a Good Thing

Community – Left, James Smith, director of sales and marketing for Lake 88 FM, accepts donations from shoppers coming out of the Carleton Place FreshCo store on Saturday, Nov. 9, as part of the Build-A-Mountain of Food campaign. Above, from left, Build-a-Mountain of Food coordinator Hugh Colton, left, James Smith, director of sales and marketing for Lake 88 FM, and Lanark Food Bank volunteer Dave McCreery load up the back of the truck with donated fruit produce. Overall, more than 11,405 lbs. of food was collected, and the amount of cash collected was double the 2012 amount, with the campaign raking in a cool $2,042. Food was also collected at Steve’s Your Independent Grocer and Giant Tiger, as well as Patrice’s Your Independent Grocer in Almonte.

Corin Raymond performs at MERA Schoolhouse Nov. 24 Arts – Late in 2011, Corin Raymond, who appears Nov. 24 at MERA Schoolhouse, was having a beer with James Paul, owner of the studio that would be recording Raymond’s upcoming live album. He mentioned to Paul that he knew of a bar in Toronto that accepted Canadian Tire money. He was thinking he should get his friends to collect up all their coupons and have a party. “Rogue Studios has always taken Canadian Tire money at par,” Paul told him. That was the incident that gave birth to what Raymond calls the Great Canadian Tire Caper of 2012. He put out word to his fans and friends that he was collecting Canadian Tire money to pay for the recording of his new album. Before long, he was receiving envelopes from far and wide, with everything from a lone five-cent coupon to hundreds of dollars worth of the scrip. Then the news media got hold of the story, and Corin found himself interviewed on As It Happens and The National and CTV News and featured in the Globe and Mail and the Toronto Star, and much to his bemusement, the Wall Street Journal. He was even the subject of a skit on This Hour Has 22 Minutes, all for his unique approach to funding the recording. In January 2012, Raymond recorded two nights of live concerts with his band, The Sundowners, and exactly a year later, returned to the same venue to release the CD package. And what a package it is: Paper Nickels consists of two CDs contained inside a 144-page hardcover book, with 57 photos, the lyrics and chords to all the songs, the story of where he found the songs and his experience of the artists who wrote them, and of course the story of how his friends, fans and total strangers helped him collect more than $7,300 in Canadian Tire money.

Canadian singer-songwriter Corin Raymond brings the Sunday Schoolhouse Concert Series. Tickets are his talents to MERA Schoolhouse Nov. 24, as part of available at Tickets Please in Perth. The Globe and Mail hailed it as “a live album that couldn’t be more ‘Made in Canada’ if it was scented with maple syrup, shipped by beavers and came with thimbles of Stompin’ Tom Connors’ blood.” Raymond is no ordinary singersongwriter. He recorded three albums as part of the duo, The Undesirables, noted for their ability to fill an auditorium or other venue with an amazingly rich sound employing only two voices and a single acoustic guitar. His earlier solo recordings

have always included songs by some one or two of his favourite songwriters, but for Paper Nickels, Raymond collected and polished 20 songs by other Canadian artists, enticing his fans with the work of many artists they might otherwise never have heard. Raymond’s other claim to fame is his onstage patter. He is a born storyteller, and often his introductions are as long as (or longer than) the songs themselves, but the songs and stories are always highly entertain-

ing. The warmth and pleasure with which he infuses his concerts are natural and genuine. As for instantly employable songs, Raymond’s been lucky enough to have written several of those with Winnipeg songwriter Rob Vaarmeyer. In 2010 he and Rob wrote A Big Truck Brought It, a trucker song that got the attention of Garth Brooks’ manager and publisher in the spring of 2011. Raymond and Vaarmeyer threw that song to the lawyers, where a single-song agreement

is in the making. Another composition of Raymond and Vaarmeyer’s, Take Me To The Mountain (But Not Yet), was used in an audition tape for a part in the Coen Brothers next film, where it earned Raymond a second look, making his Hotmail account a wee bit more compelling for a week or two last October. Most recently, the pair teamed up to write Don’t Spend It, Honey, the song which unexpectedly launched the Canadian Tire campaign and which has generated more fun than Raymond can even keep up with. Raymond’s songs have also been covered by Dustin Bentall (who recorded Three Thousand Miles), Treasa Levasseur (who recorded both Asking Me To Give You The Blues and Help Me Over), Patricia O’Callaghan, Scott Nolan, Romi Mayes, Andrew Neville and The Poor Choices, Jonathan Byrd (who recorded their co-writes The Law and the Lonesome and May The River Run Dry – both of which have been covered by several other acts in their turn), Scott Cook and The Long Weekends, Steve Brockley, Maple Jack, Josh Cockerill, Greg Cockerill, Greg Hobbs, Claire Jenkins, The Strumbellas, The Ferraros, The Farmers, Raghu Lokanathan, Suzie McNeil, and Blue Rodeo. Three different Raymond songs have been performed by three different artists at Massey Hall. His songs often get better gigs than he does, and he’s proud of that. Raymond appears in the Sunday Schoolhouse Concert Series at MERA Schoolhouse in Maberly on Sunday, Nov. 24 at 2 p.m. Advance tickets are $22 and are available from Tickets Please at 39 Foster St. in Perth (Jo’s Clothes), by phone at 613-485-6434 or online at www. ticketsplease.ca. Tickets can be reserved at Tickets Please and held for pick-up at the door.

and world issues. She earned an honors degree in political science from McMaster University and a Masters of Arts in Communication in Miami and interned at the New York Times’ Florida, Caribbean and Central America Bureaus. Here she wrote an investigative series on several Canadian women incarcerated for smuggling cocaine into the United States from Jamaica.

1948 Ford police car found at Canadian Transportation Museum Lifestyle – On a recent visit to the Canadian Transportation Museum on the Arner Town Line about 30 kilometres south of Windsor, Ont., I had the pleasure of photographing a 1948 Ford Tudor sedan redone as a

period police car. Right away, it reminded me of all the old movies shot in Los Angeles in the late ‘40s and into the ‘50s with 1948 Ford police cars. These ’48 Fords apparently made up the entire fleet at one

time. And why not? With Henry Ford’s legendary V8 engine under the hood, these cars had lots of pep for chasing bank robbers and other lawbreakers. The police car at the museum was built at the Ford factory in Windsor and was given a Canadian serial number: 050H48-17362D. The letter “H” designates the home plant in Windsor. Five years later, production was moved to Oakville and all the cars built there had serial numbers with the letter “K”. Velma Swarts of Harrow, Ont., donated this car to the museum on Oct. 16, 2003. The original colour was grey and the odometer reading today is only 30,100 miles. All body work and me-

chanical work was performed by volunteers in the 20’s garage at the museum. The decision was made to transform it into a police cruiser with black paint and white doors and a flashing red light on the roof. It even has a police radio. According to the museum files, Marc Bodechon on Westcott Road had a 1958 OPP police radio, amplifier, speakers, and microphone which he sold to Heritage Village (where the museum is located) for $100. This car still has its original flathead V8 engine under the hood with 239 cubic inches cranking out a very respectable 100 horsepower, enough to get you a speeding ticket if you keep the pedal on the floor. Top speed would be around 90 miles an hour. That’s more than fast enough for me! The museum files indicate a transfer of ownership took place on Thursday, Aug. 26, 1965 to Russel Waters Motor Sales at 104 Queen St.

in Harrow, Ont. Perhaps the original owner traded the car in for something newer, and this might be where Velma Swarts acquired the car. The Fords built from 1946 to 1948 look almost identical. The pent-up demand for new cars caused by the shutdown during World War II guaranteed a steady market for new cars right after the war even though they were restyled 1942 models. The first post-war Ford was the 1949 model brought out in June 1948, making the ’48 production run shorter than the two previous years. I’m always looking for more stories. Email billtsherk@sympatico.ca or write Bill Sherk, 25 John St., P.O. Box 255, Leamington, ON N8H 3W2. Everyone whose story is published in this column will receive a free autographed copy of my latest book: “OLD CAR DETECTIVE FAVOURITE STORIES, 1925 to 1965.”

Landscape design to benefit us and nature to be discussed Nov. 21 Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Mississippi Valley Field Naturalistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (MVFN) 2013-2014 public lecture series, Knowing and Caring Connect Us to Nature, continues Nov. 21 with its third presentation, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Landscape Design: Longterm Benefits for Us and Nature.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Anyone who possesses a curiosity or appreciation for wild nature will enjoy these lectures. Cottagers, hunters, fishermen, canoeists, hikers, campers, artists and seasoned field naturalists alike will find something to interest them as we explore what lives in Lanark County and how best to protect it for future generations. Refreshments are offered at each lecture. Picture our landscape â&#x20AC;&#x201C; hubs of human activity in towns and cities linked to one another by roads, set in a matrix of agricultural and natural land. Hubs are where most of us obtain food, shelter and water, and where we socialize, raise families, and retire. Just like us, wildlife (plants and animals) also relies on hubs for food, water, shelter, and places to reproduce. For wildlife, these hubs include provincial parks, nature reserves, and other large natural areas. Wildlife hubs are called core natural areas. Just like us, animals need to travel in search of food, mates, and other resources. By connecting core natural areas with strips of natu-

ral habitat (linkages), animals can move between core areas, giving them more living space. So, we can say that natural cores and linkages are like cities and highways for nature. But that is only part of the story. Natural areas in our landscape not only benefit wildlife â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they increase our well-being too! Stop and think about it...Where does the oxygen we breathe come from? Where is water stored on the landscape, and where does our clean drinking water come from? Where do our wild game, fish, maple syrup, and timber come from? Where are the popular places in our area for canoeing, hiking, hunting, skiing, or horseback riding? Downtown Almonte or Perth? Natural areas also provide us with less tangible cultural, spiritual, inspirational, and educational benefits. What other benefits (goods/services) can you think of that natural areas provide? A list of five is good, 10 fantastic. Continuing to reap these benefits requires that we understand and acknowledge their magnitude and diversity. We must see natural areas as our natural capital stock and give them the weight they deserve in our decision-making processes. How do we ensure that all these benefits of our natural areas are passed on to our grandchildren and their grandchil-

dren? You must have guessed. We need to maintain the health of the ecosystems they contain that provide these benefits. We need to maintain all the components and interconnecting processes that naturally occur in these ecosystems. We need to maintain (designate and protect from detrimental human activities) a network of linked natural core areas. This is simply part of logical, practical landscape planning to ensure our survival. Networks of natural areas are being identified and protected in many regions across the province including the Oak Ridges Moraine north and east of Toronto, the Niagara Escarpment, Halton County and, in our neighbourhood, the City of Ottawa. Thus MVFN invited Dr. Nick Stow, ecologist and senior planner for the City of Ottawa, to speak about how the city designed its natural heritage system for longterm nature conservation. Further, we are accustomed to valuing things in dollar terms. The field of ecological economics is growing and methods to assign dollar values to these benefits have been proposed. Consider one example. The Ontario Greenbelt, which stretches 325 kilometres from Rice Lake in Northumberland County to the Niagara River, protects about 535,000 acres of lakes, wetlands, river valleys and woodlands. The value of this Greenbeltâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mea-

surable non-market ecosystem services is estimated to be $2.6 billion annually, which is $3,487 per hectare. Joni Mitchell reminds us not to take our natural areas and their benefits for granted, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;til itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

gone.â&#x20AC;? Learn how they enhance our well-being and understand how we can ensure a harmonious, long-term connection with them. The path forward will be illustrated in MVFNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next lecture â&#x20AC;&#x153;Landscape Design: Longterm Benefits for Us and Natureâ&#x20AC;?

presented by Dr. Stow, Thursday, Nov. 21 at 7:30 p.m. at Almonte United Church, 106 Elgin St., Almonte. All are welcome ($5 fee for non-members). For further information, please contact MVFNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s program chair Cathy Keddy at 613-257-3089. R0012417813_1114

CHEO'S CARE MAKES LIFE EASIER FOR LOGAN'S FAMILY

Logan Charbonneau

Like most six-year-olds, Logan Charbonneau has a zest for life. He plays hockey with the West Nipissing Sting in his home town of Sturgeon Falls, Ontario and loves to play with Lego blocks. He loves his school, and although he can be shy when he meets new people, he always ends up loving them.

After being seen in CHEO’s Emergency department, Logan was admitted to CHEO’s 4 West medical unit where he was diagnosed with a general failure to thrive. Children who fail to thrive don't receive or are unable to take in, retain, or use the calories needed to gain weight and grow as expected.

Logan was adopted at birth. At three years old, he was diagnosed with both autism spectrum disorder and fetal alcohol spectrum disorder. His parents, Tammy and Jeff, say that two of his major challenges are difficulties with sleeping and eating. For the past three years Logan has been struggling with his diet. “He has no appetite at all,” explains his father. “He would go days without asking for food.” Logan simply has not been eating enough and this has affected his overall health. His growing body needs nourishment to thrive.

Still struggling with his lack of appetite and having lost a significant amount of weight, the CHEO team wanted to find a solution that would help Logan receive the daily nourishment he needs to stay healthy and grow, as well as regain weight — all while letting him live as normal a life as possible. After testing and consultations, Logan had surgery to have a gastrotomy tube (also known as a g-tube) inserted in his stomach. A gastrotomy tube is inserted through the abdomen and delivers nutrition directly to the stomach.

Recently Logan began to complain about pain in his abdomen. For a child who doesn’t complain, this was worrisome. A trip to the local Emergency room in Sturgeon Falls ruled out physical ailments, but the problem didn’t go away. The hospital’s pediatrician suggested Logan should be seen at CHEO.

After a four week stay at CHEO, Logan was well enough to go home to Sturgeon Falls. To prepare for their return back home and the required follow ups, the family connected with CHEO pediatrician, Dr. Ann Rowan-Legg, who knew their doctor back home. Dr. Rowan-Legg provided the support and medical follow up required for a smooth and thorough transition.

Jeff and Tammy were very impressed with the level of care and concern shown at CHEO.

“From the minute we walked into the Emergency department it’s been an amazing experience,” remembers Jeff. “They’re kind. They’re thorough. They ask a lot of questions and they answer all of our questions.”

From the minute we walked into the Emergency department it’s been an amazing experience.

“She not only put the wheels in motion, she made sure it was done at a pace that we’re comfortable with,” says Jeff. “It’s all based on what’s best for Logan.” The medical team consulted with the support services they use in Sturgeon Falls to make sure they were set up to take care of Logan when the family went home. “The only thing we’re concerned about while we’re here is him. The rest is taken care of by CHEO,” says Jeff. Tammy adds, “They’ve been one step ahead.” Logan’s home life will change a little bit but within a few months he should be back to the same active life. Now his parents know that he’ll have all the nourishment he needs. “There have been times in hockey he couldn’t even finish a game because he was too tired,” says Tammy. Teasing Logan, she adds, “Now you can get strong for hockey!” Thanks to CHEO, Logan can look forward to hockey and so much more.

Mudds Humbug’s director indeed a triple threat and more By PAT BLACK

Arts – My thespian friends will be well aware of the meaning of “triple threat,” in theatre jargon! It, of course, refers to an actor/actress who can not only dance, but also sing and act as well. The director of the Mudds upcoming production of Humbug, not only is a triple threat, but will also soon be able to add, “accomplished director” to her resume. I am speaking about Laurel Tye. I took the opportunity to sit with Laurel and ask her a few questions to find out more about this latest director with the Mudds. Question: Tell me something about your beginnings. What got you into music? Who or what influenced your decision to become a teacher? Answer: My parents were musical, but especially so, my father. He was an accomplished concert pianist who decided to confine his exceptional talent to his church, The Salvation Army. I heard music in the house almost constantly. My three older sisters sang music, which my dad composed and were asked to perform on the radio in Detroit. I was too young but was determined that someday I would play the piano and sing. I studied piano and theory from the age of six and studied voice from the age of 16. By the end of grade 13 I knew I wanted to study music at university. I was a voice major at the University of Windsor while singing in the Windsor Light Opera Society. One summer I worked with under privileged children in Chicago as a summer program coordinator for the Salvation Army. We

Laurel Tye is the director of the Mississippi Mudds’ upcoming performance of Humbug, which kicks off at the Carleton Place Town Hall auditorium Nov. 29. worked on crafts, games and stories in the morning, and in the afternoon we rehearsed a musical my father and I had written called, Wonderful Day. Their enthusiasm and bright spirit in the face of poverty and lack of opportunity touched my heart deeply. It was then, at the age of 19, I decided I wanted to become a teacher.

Q: Where did you earn your degrees? A: The University of Windsor is where I earned my first degree in music. I earned another undergrad degree later from the University of Toronto. Most recently I have earned a degree from Ottawa U. Q: How did you get involved with the Mudds?

A: A friend asked me to come out for Good News, a show the Mudds were rehearsing 22 years ago. The delightful company of such warm and friendly people cast a spell over me, which I have happily been under ever since! Q: What is your preference? On stage or as music director? A: Conducting is my passion. I have always had a group to conduct from the age of 15. It is definitely where I am most comfortable. I studied choral and orchestral conducting in university but prefer choral conducting. So much magic can be made with voices. It’s fun to be on stage and take on the personality of a fictional character too. Wearing costumes and make-up adds to the fun. My favourite role was that of the Blue Fairy in Pinocchio because I was given a gorgeous gown to wear, a crown, a wand and buckets of sparkles. I think there are still sparkles on the floor of the dressing room from my dress. My wings were huge and impressive. Having the opportunity to sing is also a joy. Singing with the chorus is fun and, if I get a solo, that’s even better. My favourite solo was ‘Ev’ry Time We Say Good-bye’ in the Cole Porter show about 17 years ago. Q: What made you decide that you wanted to direct? Are you enjoying it? Are you missing the music directing? A: After 22 years I’ve watched many good directors in the Mudds. I thought that it might be fun to take what I have learned and try my hand at it. To my delight, the board of directors gave me the green light. There is a wonderful reward in seeing my friends working so hard to con-

tribute to my vision. In this case, they have surpassed my dream. I also enjoy the hours of solitude whereby I can think through scenes and music. I sometimes hear music and dialogue blending in a certain way that I am thrilled to find my musician friends (Peter Brown and Kristine MacLaren) understand and employ. That’s very exciting! I will always be at heart a music director but I can’t say that I’m really missing it in this show. Humbug has provided me with yet another opportunity to stretch myself as artistic director. I think the secret to being a good one is to gather an amazing team. There you have it folks, a little insight into this very talented lady – Laurel Tye. Tye is a principal at York Street Public School. She drives all the way from Orleans to be part of this group, at least twice a week. The Mudds are very lucky to have such talent in our group. Readers, get out and buy your tickets! This show is sure to sell out quickly. Performances will be at the Carleton Place Town Hall. Evening performances, at 7:30 p.m., are Friday, Nov. 29; Saturday, Nov. 30; Friday, Dec. 6; and Saturday, Dec. 7. Matinee performances, at 2 p.m., are Sunday, Dec. 1 and Saturday, Dec. 7. Evening performances, $20. Matinees, $15. Tickets will be sold at the Carleton Place & District Chamber of Commerce (132 Coleman Street, 613257-1976). For more information, visit mississippimudds.ca.
