ing together in a more profound way,” said David Somppi, chair of the health village committee. Cushman said he feels some areas of healthcare he feels are done well and will get better and lighter. They are surgeries, interventions, investigations and medications. “Things are done in a home today that wasn’t even done in a hospital years ago,” he said. However, he feels the areas done poorly, such as complex health care, frail elderly, chronic disease management and mental health and addictions, are on the rise and need to be improved.

There is a lot to think about when it comes to the future of healthcare. Residents and representatives of Carleton Place, Beckwith Township and Ramsay Ward filled the upstairs boardroom of the Carleton Place arena Thursday, May 27 to learn more about the future of healthcare in the community and in the country. Dr. Rob Cushman, CEO of the Champlain Local Health Integrated Network, spoke to the visitors about the ups and downs of healthcare in Ontario. “This is to get people work-

CARLETON PLACE – Low water levels on the Mississippi River has led to the cancellation of the outboard powerboat race scheduled for this weekend. The Ottawa Valley Powerboat Club had planned to hold the Mississippi Classic, a sanctioned race, in the waters paral-

lel to Riverside Park on June 5 and 6. “It looks like we’re pooched for this year,” said Mark Krzyzanowski, a member of the club who handles promotions. “It was better to suck it up…and have a better event later.” The club had an emergency meeting on May 25 to discuss the low water levels.

A wreath laid by a veteran floats in the Mississippi River on Sunday afternoon.


Veterans, cadets and supporters take in a moment of silence to remember.

Veterans, cadets, soldiers, residents and supporters gathered in Almonte on May 30 to remember. May marks the 65th anniversary of the end of the Battle of the Atlantic and 2010 is the 100th anniversary of the Canadian Navy. A parade began at Almonte Royal Canadian Legion Branch 240, lead by the Mississippi Mills Pipe Band. The group marched to the Almonte Old Town Hall, where a memorial service was held by the Mississippi River. Local historian, veteran and honorary colonel of the 2nd Field Regiment (Lanark and Renfrew Scottish), Royal Canadian Artillery Brian Costello of Carleton Place led the ceremony throughout the afternoon.

A number of wreaths were laid in the river in memory of fallen comrades.

Healthcare front and centre

From page 1 Cushman said the way the frail elderly is dealt with leaves a lot to be desired. “There is a need for (the elderly) to retain the activities of daily living,” he said. If a normally-functioning 80-yearold is put into a hospital and treated like a patient, they will lose 50 per cent of their normal functions in seven to 10 days, he said. With the new age of healthcare, hospitals are not in need of more beds, but an overall plan, said Cushman. The fight for physicians in Ontario communities drives up the cost of healthcare, which is not “healthy,” said Cushman. “Hospitals have to fight each other for emergency room physicians,” he said. Cushman said Carleton Place is generally on the right track with the hospital village plan, as it would potentially integrate health and social services in one area. “We want everyone to have access to these services and have good care,” he said. Historically, the focus was put on “bricks and mortar” when it came to health care.

and think about the proposal. “We don’t want to measure a hospital by the number of beds,” he said. Resident Linda Pond asked if the health village would help in recruiting doctors to the community. “From what I have heard, doctors want to be doctors, not businessmen,” said Somppi. “Doctors have been interested in coming to Carleton Place, but we didn’t have an office for them.” Cushman said a health village could also provide more job opportunities for the younger generation, particularly in the IT field. It could also potentially help patients and families who do not have any medical knowledge to navigate the system. “We need to identify (the problem of understanding the system) and work on it…identify community protocols,” said Cushman. Somppi said it sounds like the health village committee is on the right track. Somppi invited residents to join the committee, or just provide input and feedback to the committee. “Don’t give up,” said Cushman of the health village and the close-tohome services.

From page 1 The membership agreed to postpone the race until sometime in September, since most of the locations they would require are already booked up for the summer months. “For our sanction to be approved, for insurance purposes, [we need] four feet of water in the turns to be insured,” said Krzyzanowski. The race was scuttled because of the low water on turn one especially, and because of, “several shoals that are in the water [that] have become more apparent.” There were also too many reeds poking up into the waterway too. “We thought about moving the course down the river,” said Krzyzanowski, towards the bridge near town hall. “It looks like we can’t even move the race down a bit…It’s a shame because it’s one of the nicest spots in Ontario Two locations under consideration for the post-

THE TOWNSHIP OF LANARK HIGHLANDS Septic Tank Maintenance is Your Responsibility Now that spring is here and everyone is busy with yardwork, we would like to remind all homeowners that septic systems require maintenance as well. As a property owner, it is your responsibility to have your septic tank maintained and pumped out on a regular basis. Studies have shown that routine pumping of a septic tank is necessary for proper performance and treatment of wastewater. Faulty systems may lead to costly repairs and the compromise of water quality and public health. If you have not had your septic tank pumped out within the last 3-5 years, please act responsibly and hire a licensed septic tank hauler to pump out your tank. Routine pumping will provide you with the peace of mind knowing that your septic tank is in good working order and capable of handling additional wastewater from your home. For more information on septic system maintenance and to obtain a free “Guide Operating & Maintaining Your Septic System”, please visit the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing website at Further information can also be obtained by contacting your local Leeds, Grenville & Lanark District Health Unit Office or their website at http://www.

poned event include Golden Lake and Lake Dore. “I think it’s just going to be a matter of rescheduling,” said Krzyzanowski. The decision was made last week because racers would have been travelling from as far away as Toronto and other parts of Ontario, Quebec and New York state. This year’s Mississippi Classic was being run in memory of one of the club’s members, Jocelyn “Peewee” Belanger, who died when his truck broke through the ice on the Ottawa River near Petrie Island this past March. “He joined our club a few years ago and his first race was in Long Sault, Ontario,” recalled Krzyzanowski. Belanger took off at full throttle and, “dumped” his boat halfway through the race. “But he was all smiles [after the race]. No damage done.” The club has not lost any money on the cancellation.


New to the neighbourhood?


Tonight, June 3, Bridge Street in Carleton Place will be closed between Lake Avenue to Emily Street due to water main operations. The street will be closed from 9:30 p.m. to 6 a.m.

“It is much more fun for a politician to cut a ribbon then get up and talk about teamwork,” said Cushman. “Medicine today is complex. We have multiple needs, not simple needs. We need better integration.” The North Renfrew Health campus has a similar setup, as it is the host of the Deep River and District Hospital, family health care and services, physiotherapy and a local food bank. Cushman pointed at a picture of a familiar blue and white “H” sign, which is the recognized symbol for hospital. “Both the Deep River and Ottawa Hospital have ‘H’ on the doors, but that is where it ends,” said Cushman. “The ‘H’ should mean healthcare, not hospital. Hospitals have to understand the healthcare business, not just the hospital business.” Beckwith Deputy Reeve Sharon Mousseau asked Cushman what will happen if the province does not financially support the health village idea. “Is it all or nothing?” she asked. “I think an expanded hospital is the primary need with the new development pressures.” Cushman recommended the committee go back to the drawing board

MUNICIPAL MATTERS Spring Clean Up Time! The Township is passing on a friendly reminder that this is a great time of year to celebrate spring with an outdoor clean-up around your home. All of our municipal waste sites accept household garbage, recycling (paper, plastic, glass, cans, and boxes), scrap metal and used tires. Household hazardous waste, construction waste and larger bulky items are accepted at the Middleville site. Don’t forget that usable household goods, furniture and appliances can go to the McDonald’s Corners Re-Use Centre. That way we save space in our landfills and your old trash gets a new lease on life by becoming somebody else’s treasure. If you don’t have room to compost all your yard waste at home, it is accepted at all landfill sites. With a little clean up, your yard will be a place where you can enjoy the summer with your family and friends. Visitors will see what a beautiful community we live in, and your neighbors will thank you for improving the view from their yards! Operating hours at the various waste sites can be found on our web-site at or our newly published “Highland Voice”. Happy Spring – see you at the recycling depots!

“Fire safety is not just for homes, it’s for cottages, cabins, seasonal hunt camps, RVs, trailers, and mobile homes too. It’s the law in Ontario to have working smoke alarms in every dwelling.” The term ‘dwelling unit’ includes seasonal homes such as park model trailers, cabins and cottages and also includes trailer homes, motor homes and other recreational vehicles. Failure to comply with the applicable Fire Code smoke alarm requirements can result in a ticket for $235 or a fine of up to $100,000.

Council Meeting Schedule: Tuesday, June 22 at 2:30 p.m. – Committee of the Whole Tuesday, June 22 at 7:00 p.m. – Council Thursday June 24 at 6:00 p.m. – Corporate Services, Public Works & Waste Management

DID YOU KNOW? Landfill space is valuable. Every time you recycle, you help the Township raise money to pay for recycling services. Diverting waste from our landfills makes ‘good cents.’ KEEP IT GREEN – RECYCLING WORKS!

MISSISSIPPI MILLS – Finland’s Ambassador to Canada will be visiting Mississippi Mills on June 17 to find out how forests are managed here, and he will speak that night on the Finnish experience. His Excellency Risto Piiponen’s trip to the area will be the first in what the Lanark Community Stewardship Council hopes will be an “Ambassador Speaker Series,” in which members of the diplomatic community nearby Ottawa can share world views on rural/urban communities, tourism and related stewardship issues. Council member Paul Egginton pointed to the rural tourism movement that is coming to life in Northern Ireland, as well as how forestry and tourism are complementing each other aesthetically and otherwise in Switzerland, during a presentation to the Town of Mississippi Mills’ finance, administration and policy committee meeting on May 27. “We’d like to form a partnership with Mississippi Mills and Lanark County,” said Egginton. He noted that Piiponen’s speech would touch on how Finns enjoy their natural world, with 97 per cent of Finns pursuing outdoor pursuits, far above the number of Canadians who take to the outdoor scene. The ambassador has also been invited to spend the day in the county, and members of the federal and provincial natural resources departments have been

invited to join in the tour that will explore agricultural and forestry issues. The tour will cost the Stewardship Council about $1,000. Piiponen will be speaking at Almonte’s Old Town Hall that evening, and Egginton requested that the $236.75 rental fee be waived for this occasion. “This is a program that is worthy of our consideration,” said Mayor Al Lunney. “I strongly support this.” The matter of waiving the fee now goes before the committee of the whole on June 7, followed immediately by the full council later the same day. The county’s tourism authority has already donated $450 towards the tour, according to Egginton. Carleton Place has been asked to co-host a dinner for the ambassador with the council that day, with the understanding that the next ambassador to speak in the series will dine in Almonte , and then speak at a venue in Carleton Place. “Carleton Place is very interested in this,” said Lunney, stressing that Mississippi Mills should also show its interest in the program. “This has longrange implications in the area.” Others at the council table also expressed their support in welcoming Canada’s Finnish friend. In places like the U.K. and Australia, Coun. Marilyn Anderson noted that, “the people are out walking and exploring all the time and I think we should promote it.” “They can see the forest for the trees” joked Coun. John Edwards.

There were a sea of red wine-coloured shirts parading along Bridge Street Saturday afternoon, as locals and visitors alike took in the third annual Wine’d Around Downtown event. “This is our third stop on the tour and so far everything has been great,” said Kim Watson of Scotch Corners in Beckwith, who attended the festivities for the third time with her husband, Guy. Walking along Bridge Street, Watson said she felt a sense of community. That sense of community travelled throughout the downtown core and into the historic Carleton Place Town Hall, which was the home of a mini trade show hosted by the sponsoring committee. The room was bustling with conversation as Leather Works Pub and Restaurant owner Dennis Burn cooked up pork tenderloin with real maple syrup. Also available at his table were duck breast on a bun, stuffed jalapeno and shrimp, roast beef on a bun and vegetable and fruit kabobs. “The day is going very well,” said Burn, who sat on the event’s organizing committee. “Because of demand, we expanded this year to include the Old Town Hall as place for people to come.

No time for sleeping this Friday night at Relay For Life KATIE MACGREGOR On the night of Friday, June 4, the Carleton Place High School student body will not be sleeping. Instead, they will be participating in Relay For Life, a biannual event that raises money to help the Canadian Cancer Society fight back against cancer 365 days a year. You may have noticed some of the many teams from CPHS fundraising around our community. For weeks, teams of students and teachers as well as volunteers and honoured survivors have been preparing for this all night relay. The night of the event, members of the community are invited to attend and become a part of the Relay For Life experience. The doors will be open to the

public from 7 until 11 p.m. The relay begins with an opening ceremony after which survivors as well as their caregivers, are celebrated by preceding the participants around the track for the Survivors’ Victory Lap. After the survivors have completed their opening lap, students walk, jog or skip around the CPHS track until 7 a.m. the next morning to symbolize their never-ending commitment to winning the fight against cancer.

MISSISSIPPI MILLS – Former Mississippi Mills town council member Philip Wood has decided to re-enter political life in the area. Wood became the first person to officially register to run as a candidate in the Almonte Ward for the Oct. 25 municipal election. Wood had previously served as a councillor from 2000 to 2003. “Municipal democracy is the last bastion of true democracy. There are no party lines,” said Wood. “I enjoyed most of my time on council,” said Wood of his first term in office. In 2003, Wood went back to work at Transport Canada, but will be retiring from his civil service job next year, freeing up more time for civic engagement.

between those urging for a septage component and those opposed to it. “[There are] people moving to the country and bringing their urban ideas with them and not being aware of what’s going on around them,” he said. He noted that he lives near the railway tracks in Almonte and knew when he moved in that that came with the territory. Wood also pointed to the, “continual rise in taxes,” as another issue on his agenda. While not opposed to incremental increases to keep pace with rising costs, he wants to keep an eye on utility rates. “You pay for every drop [of water] you use and that wasn’t the case a few years ago,” said Wood. One of Wood’s side projects is the Philip K. Wood Gallery in the Victoria Woolen Mill on Mill

“It’s a way to give back,” he said of political life. Amongst the top concerns he will be addressing in his run for office will be the ongoing septage issue. He noted that some politicians have been pushing for the septage treatment system even before provincial regulations have been put in place, something he recalls being mentioned back in 2003. “That hasn’t come to fruition yet,” he said of a provincial ban on septage spreading. “I can understand the rural residents not wanting to pay into something [like that.]” “I wouldn’t want it [septage] spread on a field next to me…but people have been doing it [spreading septage] for years,” added Wood. He blamed a cultural shift in the area for the friction

A right royal mess

Giving thanks to our local seniors



s we tip-toe our way into the month of June, many of us have a lot on our minds. Bicycle safety, boat safety, the end of school year and remembering to bring the sunscreen. June is also Seniors’ Month in the province. Last week, the Town of Carleton Place declared June to be Seniors’ Month at the local level as well. Local resident Doug Smith made some good points at the May 25 meeting of council. Seniors tend to have more available time to give because they are retired and have grown kids. They tend to spend their hard-earned savings in the area and support local talent by attending shows and events. Some of the most memorable contributions in the area are because of seniors. The Mississippi Mills Grannies continuously help out grannies in Africa through constant fundraising. Mittens have been donated by a retired teacher to Caldwell Street Public School. Service clubs, such as the Lions Club and Civitan Club feature a number of seniors who are all ready for a challenge, whether it’s picking up garbage during Pitch-In Day/Week or serving meals during fundraising breakfasts, lunches and dinners. The local legion branches are host to a number of seniors who have not only given to their communities, but also to their country. On May 30, veterans and supporters gathered in Almonte for a memorial parade and service for the Battle of the Atlantic’s 65th anniversary. As veterans laid wreaths into the Mississippi River, it was obvious they were thinking of their comrades who never returned home from the fight. Unfortunately, many seniors are often alone because they lack family in the area. Others end up being at the receiving end of road rage, thanks to hurried drivers. June is a great reminder to give back to the seniors of our community, as they have given so much throughout their lives and continue to do so each day.

Kids to community: Keep it clean The following is the text of a letter sent to the Hon. John Gerretsen, Minister of the Environment in response to an article published in the May 27 edition of the Canadian Gazette. Dear Editor, I am writing in response to an article in the May 27 issue of the Canadian Gazette which reported that officials from the Ontario Ministry of the Environment (MOE), “…told a delegation from Mississippi Mills town council that it was not able to say for sure what action it could take on the issue of septage spreading.” The same article reported that MOE officials suggested Mississippi council use the political route, curious given that the mayor of Mississippi Mills, Al Lunney, was previously directed by provincial politicians to contact MOE staff. In June 2001, the Ontario government made a commitment to phase out the

land application of septage over a fiveyear period. One of the key provisions to take place once regulations were in place was that, “…all requests for renewed approval of existing Certificates of Approvals for septage application would be reviewed to determine whether the materials could be accepted by local sewage treatment plants or another treatment facilities.” At the same time, the Environmental Commissioner of Ontario in his Annual Report 2000/2001 stated that, “…the ECO’s review of existing policies and regulations for the land spreading of sewage sludge and septage has concluded that they are not adequate to protect the environment, even if they were consistently and firmly enforced” and that, “…even though septage presents a greater risk of introducing pathogens into the environment, Ontario’s septage spreading rules are weaker.” On Nov. 20, 2004, Leona Dombrowsky, then Minister of the Environment, in a speech to the Ontario Association of Sewage Industry Services, said, “…I believe that ending the practice of land disposal of untreated septage will benefit the people of Ontario.

Well Fergie, this is another right mess you’ve gotten us into. To bring you up to speed on the wayward royal, Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, was recently caught on video, as part of a sting by the News of the World tabloid, offering access to her ex-husband, Andrew, the Duke of York, for about 500,000 British pounds (about $759,413.95 CAN.) Fergie, as she’s known, went on Oprah’s famous couch earlier this week to record an apology for her behaviour. Fergie clearly did not know who this covert reporter really was and therefore could have put the father of her children at risk of a threat to his reputation, if not his life. A source also told Tony Jones of the Dublin Evening Herald that “she would like to have the chance to say sorry and explain – she’s not going to be making excuses.” This should be rich, pun intended. She thought she needed the money, she got caught, now she’s in public relations overdrive to revive her image. Why did she ever think that this was a good idea? If you watched Oprah’s broadcast on Tuesday, you saw the monarchy at its worst. Greedy, selfish, woefully out of touch. If you want to see the best of the monarchy, go and see the royalty exhibit, on now at the North Lanark Regional Museum in Appleton. There you can see the reverence and respect that Canadians had, and still have, for the monarchy. The monarchy has suffered worse than Fergie. It’s class acts like the Queen who keep it going and, just as importantly, we the people too. For what is a Queen, without her subjects?

LETTERS from page 8 It will help protect public health and it will help protect the environment.” In that same speech, Minister Dombrowsky stated that the establishment of the Canada-Ontario Municipal Rural Infrastructure Fund was, “…good news for your industry because it means more municipal systems will be able to accommodate septage in the future.” I am surprised then, given these statements, that this provincial government and its officials can still not say for sure what action can be taken when it responds to the mayor and council of Mississippi Mills. Although provincial politicians have done very little over the past nine years on fulfilling promises to ban land application of untreated septage and have not provided leadership or direction on resolving the issue, thankfully, Mayor Lunney and

Mississippi Mills council have shown leadership in providing a solution. A design for septage-handling facilities was added to the Mississippi Mills Sewage Treatment Plant Upgrade, which was subjected to a provincial environmental assessment and discussed and presented at many open houses within the community. There is one outstanding issue. With the increased provincial tax burden, I am sympathetic to the recent concerns raised by rural residents that they will be exposed to the costs of operating the new septage-handling facility if septage haulers are still allowed to spread septage within Mississippi Mills. What Mayor Lunney was seeking from MOE officials and you was a commitment to following the provisions of your own strategy, an end to Certificate of Approvals within Missis-

sippi Mills once the septage handling facility is in place thereby ensuring septage haulers will be responsible for all of the operational costs for the facility. I find it puzzling that it is already prohibited to spread untreated septage on fields within the City of Ottawa given access to the capacity at the Robert O. Picard Environment Centre and treatment facility. One result of the Ottawa prohibition is that a large percentage of septage from the City of Ottawa is currently being spread on Mississippi Mills’ farm land. Why would the approach taken for Ottawa be different and thus why can you not provide the same assurances to the mayor and council of Mississippi Mills once the septage-handling facility is in place? I have already written on many occasions to your predecessors on why banning land application

of untreated septage is a good policy and regulations enforcing that policy are long overdue. Your predecessors and senior MOE officials have already stated publicly that this ban is in the public interest and will help protect human health and the environment. You only have to consider the many published studies including the study published in the British Medical Journal and reported in the National Post some years ago, “…people exposed to fields fertilized with human excrement run an increased risk of developing untreatable, potentially deadly viral and bacterial infections and cancer”. Mayor Lunney is doing the right thing, not the politically safe thing. He and Mississippi Mills council deserve answers to two questions: is the Provincial Government of Ontario still com-

mitted to banning the land application of untreated septage, and; will you as Minister of the Environment terminate existing Certificate of Approvals for septage application within Mississippi Mills once the septage handling facilities are in place in 2012? The newspaper article in the Canadian Gazette reported that the mayor and his delegation did not get answers or direction from MOE officials at a meeting on May 19, 2010. As Minister of the Environment, I expect you to show leadership on this issue, provide the answers and let the Municipality get on with its work. Yours sincerely,

Bruce Young, Mississippi Mills See LETTERS on page 10

Dividends: A good source of income


STACIE ROBERTSON Looking for a way to add both income and growth potential to your investment portfolio? Consider dividendpaying stocks. What are dividends? They’re the portion of profits companies pay out to shareholders. Typically larger, well-established companies pay dividends – usually quarterly, semi-annually or annually. Younger or smaller companies may not pay dividends because they prefer to reinvest their profits in the company to further growth. When you invest in shares that pay dividends, you have the potential to receive a stream of income while your investment may potentially increase in value. That means dividend-paying stocks can help meet your income requirements and potentially boost your wealth – if you’re willing to take on more risk. However, keep in mind that dividends can be increased, decreased or eliminated at any point without notice. An investment in dividend-paying stocks doesn’t mean you have to go overboard on risk. While stocks are inherently more risky than conservative, interestgenerating investments, sticking to dividend-paying shares of blue chip companies can help you manage that risk. There are more advantages to dividend investing than you might think. In addition to producing a stream of income, dividend-paying investments can be less vulnerable to rising interest rates than some other income investments. Plus, dividend payments have the potential to rise as company earnings grow, while interest payments from most investments remain static. If you don’t need the dividend income to support your current lifestyle, you can reinvest the dividends, also known as systematic investing. By participating in a dividend reinvestment program, you can help enhance your portfolio’s growth potential by using your dividend income to purchase more shares in the company. By accumulating additional shares, you can increase the potential for more dividend income over time. Remember, though, that systematic investing does not ensure a profit or protect against loss. Dividend-paying stocks can also help reduce the overall volatility of your equity portfolio. Although past performance is not a guarantee of future results, price moves of these stocks historically have been less than those of non-dividend-paying equities. Because of their income potential, investors are less likely to sell these stocks in turbulent markets, which can temper price swings. There’s also an income tax advantage. Dividends from Canadian corporations are eligible for the dividend tax credit, which reduces the tax you pay on income

from these shares. Interest income, on the other hand, is fully taxable. And if shares increase in value there are also capital gains, which receive preferential tax treatment. For more information, please consult your tax professional. How do you pick suitable dividend-paying stocks? Consider investing in companies that are capable of generating an uninterrupted stream of dividends, perhaps with the potential of increases down the road. Here are some possibilities to consider: • Large, blue chip companies with good cash flow and profit histories • Companies that have a solid record of paying uninterrupted dividends • Companies that have consistently raised their dividends However, never invest in a company simply because it offers a good dividend. The longevity of that dividend and the health of the share price can depend upon whether the business is sound and has good prospects for the future. To get a better understanding of how dividend-paying stocks could help with your income needs, speak with your financial advisor. He or she can help assess not only the companies offering dividend-paying stocks but also how they may fit into your risk tolerance and overall portfolio objectives.

Dear Editor, I was pleased to see front page coverage about the issue of harm reduction. While needle exchange was discussed at the conference, the main focus was on harm reduction in its broadest sense. Jennifer Barr, the guest speaker from the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, explained that harm reduction does not always mean reducing substance use, but includes the provision of other resources to prevent harm to those involved in substance use, their families and the communities they live in. Harm reduction strategies also make timely and effective health care accessible. Harm reduction “is a philosophy of care that minimizes harm from substance use, increases health and quality of life, respects peoples’ decisions and choices and makes no judgment about the moral or legal nature of substance abuse.” Harm reduction strategies also act as a bridge to other services including education, testing, medical care, immunization, drug counseling and treatment. The concept of harm reduction needs to be understood and supported by all facets of society in every community. There was an error in the report about methadone clinics. The Change Health Care Clinic in Brockville is the only methadone clinic in Leeds, Grenville

and Lanark counties. Currently, two pharmacies in Lanark County dispense methadone prescriptions. The Health Unit does not dispense methadone at the Brockville Office. Jane Futcher, director of clinical services, Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit EDITORIAL NEEDED TO FOCUS ON MORE THAN HELMETS Dear Editor, Last week’s editorial about Bicycle Month, Safely celebrating Bicycle Month, in my opinion, has missed what is surely the most important aspect of the proposal to require motorized vehicles: to give cyclists space. In over 30 years since the fuel crisis of the 70s brought the 10speed to our roadways, traffic safety has seen major strides in terms of air bags, ABS brakes and highway improvements. These have afforded a whole generation of drivers the expectation of speed and schedules have adjusted accordingly. Life has become faster and deadlines tighter. Added to this, on-board distractions such as cell phones and GPS have enabled the imperatives of home and the workplace to be delivered directly to the driver’s seat, taking a driver’s attention away from where it ought to be, namely, the road. With the spotlight focused on motorized travel, other road users have been ignored. See LETTERS on page 11

June declared Seniors’ Month in Carleton Place KATIE MULLIGAN

“Seniors and retirees have the time, money and energy to involve themselves.” posable income to activities, service and industry and retail establishments in the area. Many are also retired and available to help their communities as volunteers. “Seniors and retirees have the time, money and energy to involve themselves in local activities, whether in their church, service club or social club,” said

LETTERS from page 10 Other than legislating helmets and creating a few recreational pathways, absolutely nothing has been done to improve safety for bicycles. While trucks have gotten longer and people carriers have proliferated, the cyclist’s share of the road has only gotten smaller. While other jurisdictions have provided paved shoulders, Ontario has done nothing. Things have come to a head on Appleton Road, which was until recently a favourite cycling alternative to busy Highway 29 for travel to Carleton Place. Appleton Road has become a dragstrip for gravel trucks supporting Highway 407 construction. In the past week, one member of the Almonte Bicycle club was brushed closely by a gravel truck on at least two occasions. Such incidents may have been due to driver inattention, or they may have been deliberate. Either way, the end result for the cyclist can be serious. While helmets afford some protection against catastrophic head injury, they afford absolutely no protection against the broken hips,

broken collarbones, broken limbs and torn tendons which can result from just a minor brush with a passing vehicle. Calling for more enforcement of helmet legislation, as the Canadian Gazette editorial did, trivializes the impact of such injuries, which can take months to repair, if at all. Bicycle Month is about making the public more aware of the bicycle as a viable means of transportation. There are many people out there who, due to visual or physical constraints may never be allowed to drive, and this number is likely to increase as baby boomers age. The recent emergence of electrically assisted bikes will give retiring boomers increased incentive to ride. The recent catastrophic accident in Quebec was due entirely to driver inattention. More awareness on the part of the victim isn’t going to do anything to avert a rear-ender. If it makes a driver think twice and slow down before passing, the metre-clearance rule would be a small price to pay. Les Humphreys, RR2 Almonte

CARLETON PLACE – June is Seniors’ Month in Ontario and some local residents want to spread the word. Doug Smith, of the District 7A North Lanark Senior Games Association, approached Carleton Place council to request the town declare the month of June as Seniors’ Month in Carleton Place as well.

Over 500 participants over the age of 55 have now completed in the 20 games offered by the organization, he said. “We will have a large contingent, over 40 gold-medal winners from Carleton Place, going to Oshawa in August and to Haliburton in February 2011,” he said. The participants will be representing District 7A in the provincial finals. Some of those finalists, he said, may proceed to the Canada Senior Games.

The senior games programs have expanded considerably in the area. Floor shuffleboard, for example, has grown from one day per week to three days per week at the Carleton Place Curling Club, because of the increase in players. Mayor Paul Dulmage said he couldn’t agree more with Smith about the importance of seniors in the town. “Seniors are a valid asset to our community,” said Dulmage. On behalf of council, Dulmage officially declared June Seniors’ Month in Carleton Place.

New board of directors for Mississippi Mills Chamber ALISON BELL Canadian Gazette

As another fiscal year rolled by for the Mississippi Mills Chamber of Commerce, board members reflected on improvements made in 2009 and new upcoming programs. “We have revitalized the organization in the past year. People are seeing the benefits,” said board member David Baril. To further attract area business owners, the board members also opted to lower membership fees. The initiatives are proving to pay off, as membership has almost doubled in the past year, said Baril. “We are going to continue our marketing initiatives with a fo-

cus on business expansion and branding the town as a place to do business.” Baril, who operates P2IT, said there will be a focus on blending technology and the arts, as Mississippi Mills has a wealth of talented artists and online businesses. Branding is one of the focuses board member Gerry Turcotte wants the organization to concentrate on. “Mississippi Millls has its own flavour, but what does the Chamber want to be when it grows up?” he asked the members in attendance. He said the Chamber should work on improving its website,, while continuing to expand the

public Wi-Fi service downtown. The Mississippi Mills Chamber of Commerce supports 175 businesses and has a mailing list of about 350, which includes non-members who occasionally attend Chamber events. It has no paid staff and no office, but is supported by a dedicated group of volunteers, said Baril. Up next for the group is a board meeting to elect the new president and executive roles. There is also a “mixer” meeting at the Barley Mow June 23. The Chamber regularly hosts mixers, which are after-hours business socials. Mississippi Mills includes the communities of Almonte, Pakenham, Ramsay, Appleton, Blakeney and Clayton.

A new Mississippi Mills Chamber of Commerce board of directors was elected at the organization’s annual general meeting last Wednesday (May 26). From left: Jack Elgood, Wanda Fairhurst, Stephen Braithwaite, Adrian Ayotte, Bob Volks, David Baril, Gerry Turcotte and Kristin Riendeau.

The biggest project, of course, will be the Gord Cowie, Advertising Manager of the building of the kiosk. Canadian Gazette, takes pleasure in welcoming Carla Sheedy to the sales team of the Canadian Gazette.

“We’re in the process of looking at requests for proposals for the kiosk,” said Guthrie. “We’re in the midst of pricing and quote mode.” While construction work continues on the exterior of the building, Guthrie hopes that the interior plans will come to fruition later this year. “We’re hoping for fall because, generally, that’s when our concert series are,” said Guthrie. The grant application, and the desire for improvements to the auditorium space, did not come from the top down, but rather from the various stakeholders in the facility. “This was a project that was made possible by our advisory committee,” said Guthrie. “They helped us create this wish list.” The committee is made up of volunteers and people with a vested interest in the facility, such as the Valley Players, Almonte in Concert, and the big band Standing Room Only, to name a few. “Some of the things have been on the wish list for quite a while” said Guthrie. “Some came out from discussions with Trillium.”

MISSISSIPPI MILLS – The chain stays here. “This is staying here. It’s staying in Mississippi Mills,” said Lunney as he kicked off Mississippi Mills Bicycle Month at Almonte Old Town Hall on May 26. Instead of wearing his official chain of office, another metal object hung around His Honour’s neck, The Silver Chain. The chain will be won by whichever Lanark County municipality is able to win the Silver Chain Challenge, for collecting the most points in an online calculator, to determine which area is the most pro-bicycle area in the county. “The challenge is out there to the other municipalities,” said Lunney empathically. “I’ll be riding my bike every day.” Residents in each of the participating areas can go online to, to log their kilometres biked. Points will also be awarded for senior and kid cyclists, for riding to work, choosing to use a bike over a car, and even for wearing helmets. “We want people to keep track of their kilometres on our website,” said bicycle month’s organizer, Jeff Mills. “Seeing that, it’s all about positive reinforcement.” This is the event’s second year and there are many new events planned, and some old favourites returning. “We bit off a little bit

The next big event will be on Friday, June 4 when the Bicycle Month Committee will host a Bicycle Street Party, beginning with a bike rodeo at 4:30 p.m. in the Old Town Hall parking lot, for riders aged nine to 13. There will also be bike decorating at Kirkland Park at 5 p.m., followed by a ribbon cutting, cake and bicycle games from 5:45 p.m. on at the town hall. Little Bridge and Mill streets will be closed to nonbike traffic between Bridge Street and the Post Office

for this event. “We just provide a platform and a lot of people bring their events to it,” said Mills. Perhaps the largest new event that the committee has undertaken will be the Bicycle World trade show at the Stewart Community Centre in Pakenham, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 12. “There’s no cycle show between Montreal and Toronto so we’re trying to scoop Ottawa,” said Mills. “We’re trying to create an economic generator to help make bicycle month sustainable. Cycle month is a lot about local business development.” Even with support from the community and private and community groups, government money was still required to get some of the committee’s initiatives off of the ground. “We are very fortunate to have received some funding through the Ontario Ministry of Transportation,” said Mills. The Bicycle Month Committee put in a joint bid for funding with the Town of Mississippi Mills. The town donated $5,000 towards the month, with the ministry providing an identical $5,000. Some of the money will go towards printing brochures and maintaining

the group’s website, while a large portion of the money will be spent on share-theroad signs. “You have to be careful on country roads and traffic is thicker than ever. We want people to cycle safely,” said Mills, who added that the signs were necessary, “to have residents know that we are out there riding…and we need to share the road.” The Town of Mississippi Mills is also supporting the initiative. Mills told those assembled that he had had a wonderful meeting with Lunney discussing the town’s support for the month. “It was the quickest, most delightful meeting I’ve ever had. He just kept saying yes,” said Mills. “The reason I said yes all of your requests is because it didn’t involve any money,” said Lunney with a laugh. Other local biking enthusiasts were delighted that cycling month had returned to the area for a second year. “It’s a great thing for Almonte. For me, it puts Almonte on the map,” said Pamela Griffin, who leads a seniors walking group, and holds seniors aerobics classes in Carleton Place. “For a little town like Almonte, that’s good news.”

Stiff competition in the East Regionals track and field championship held in Belleville weeded out the best athletes from Carleton Place High School, Almonte District High School, and Notre Dame Catholic High School. The top-four finishers in each event qualified for the all-Ontario (OFSAA) championships set for this week in London and a number of local athletes will be competing against the best high school track and field athletes in the province In total 16 students from CPHS will be going to OFSAA, including Graydon Rothwell (midget boys pole vault) and Corey Wingate (senior boys shot put). Both athletes brought home gold from the regional meet. Wingate will also be competing in senior discuss after a second place finish. Other seconds went to Taha Piepers (midget boys 100-m hurdles), Harrison Daly (junior boys pole vault), midget boys 4x100-m relay team, Jeremy Siegel (junior boys 100-m hurdles), and Kevin Gayton (senior boys 110-m hurdles). Third-place finishers going on to the provincials include Duncan McNaughton (midget boys pole vault), Riley Drummond (junior boys pole vault), Josh Connah (junior boys shot put), and Tyler Emmanuel (senior boys triple jump). Fourth-place finishers include Sabrina Van Schynd (junior girls shot put), and Tyler Murphy (junior boys javelin throw) ADHS has Symon Stowe moving on for coming third in junior boys 300-m hurdles. James Illingworth, after finishing fourth in senior boys discus throw, will also set his sights on OFSAA gold. Moving on for NDCHS is Dennis Brianski (third in senior boys shot put) and Dominick Thomas (fourth in junior boys 100 metres).

MAKING WAVES Carleton Place Canoe Club paddler Skyler Graham rows to the finish line of the C1 six-kilometre race at the club Sunday morning. The club hosted the first annual Ontario Cup Sunday. The event was a long distance event for midget aged paddlers and up. The event was designed to prepare the athletes for the upcoming racing season. The event saw participants from Collingwood to North Bay.

It took two days and eight games for the CP/Lanark United U16 girls soccer team to win the Ottawa Internationals Icebreaker Tournament on May 29 and 30. And win they did, in fine fashion, with a 2-0 victory over St. Lawence United in the final game. The CP girls relied on fierce defending against a strong wind and the talented St .Lawence team in the first half, to keep the game scoreless. With the wind in the second half, the local girls displayed their superior ball control talents, kept the ball in the offensive zone, and scored two goals on wonderful passing

Season gets rolling for local cyclists LES HUMPHREYS

Almonte Bicycle Club

The first 40-kilometre time trial of the 2010 series took place on Highway 511 south of Calabogie on, May 30, 2010. A small, but fast, field, turned out for the event. Cool temperatures and a light northwest breeze kept the conditions from being ideal. All 18 riders finished. Fastest was Warren MacDonald (Nine2five) with a time of 53:54; fastest from the ABC was Peter James in a time of 69:55. Fastest female was Wen-

dy Blagdon (Cyclery) in a time of 66:17; fastest ABC female was Celia McInnis in a time of 73:16. Glen Budgell had a course best; and Sergei Konov, Neil Farish, and Parham Momtahan had personal best times. Last to finish Celia McInnis added a little spring colour to the scene, adorning her bicycle with a bouquet of flowers. Results are: Warren MacDonald (53.54); Colin Campbell (58.54); Alan Cameron (59.33); Glen Budgell (course best 59.50); Andrew Kruger (60:09); Sergei Konov (personal best 62:04); Neil Farish (personal best 62:15); Larry Burge (65:24); Hermann Kerchkoff (65:35); Wendy Blagdon (66:17); Alison

CARLETON PLACE – Students at Carleton Place High School (CPHS) can now say that they saw the Evolutionary Band before they were famous reality TV stars. The Evolutionary Band’s final performance on their 30th anniversary tour took place on May 28 in the school’s gym, and marked the last time that the students from Confederation Secondary School in Val Caron, a town north of Sudbury, would be playing together. “This was the last performance of the year,” said Brenda Stobo, who handles communications for the band, after the performance, which featured covers of popular bands like AC/DC, Queen, Led Zeppelin, and Nickelback. But their onstage efforts this year may translate into success for future band members, if a planned reality TV series about the band takes off. Zack Werner, a judge on Canadian Idol and president of Venus Records, has been interested in promoting the band since the school sent him a mini documentary last year. “Zack came up in November, liked what he saw, [and] did some taping of the kids,” said Stobo. During this just-wrapped tour, Werner not only introduced the kids during stops in Lindsay and Belleville, but taped portions of their Lindsay show. During both shows, Werner asked how many of the students watched the musical-themed teen drama Glee. A fair number of the students at both shows responded that they had seen it. “Glee is a bunch of 30-something actors pretending to be high school students,” said Werner. Then, pointing to the band behind him, he declared “this is the real deal.” The band uses strobe lights, concert lighting and dry ice, during its performances, so having TV cameras following them on stage was nothing new.

Rock This Way: Guitarists Kayla O’Hearon and Luc Pilon are joined by singer Cassie Young. “I film them all the time. They’re used to me. I’m in their face,” admitted Stobo. “They’re aware that a body’s there and they have to move around me, but that’s it.” Werner hopes to be able to put out a 10part reality series. “He would like to see it go international, maybe even Europe,” added Stobo. “We’re waiting now to see the finished product.” The band is different from regular school bands in that it not only plays contemporary hard rock, but is also a full credit course, held mostly outside of school hours. “They have to commit. They do auditions in September,” said Stobo. The program began under the guidance of music director Norm McIntosh. “They didn’t have an established music program, so he decided why not hit them

with what they hear every day?” While the program uses students from grades nine to 12, there is no priority given to seniority. “There’s no priority. Grade 9, Grade 12, they all have to interview and re-audition in the fall,” said Stobo. “Nobody is guaranteed their place back.” Once they have been auditioned and interviewed and then selected, the students begin practising between 2:30 and 4:30 p.m. every day, four days a week, from September until March, clocking in more than 400 hours of rehearsal time. Once March hits, they begin performing in public at least once a week, which usually ends with a tour in May. This year’s tour also took in Belleville, Cornwall and Lindsay. Another lesson that the students learn as part of the course is how to fundraise and how to set up and tear down a set.

Desmond Devoy / Canadian Gazette

Keyboardist Rose Marcotte, of the Evolutionary Band, gets caught up in the beat of the music as she head-bangs along with her friends on stage. “They’re completely self-supporting. They get no money from the board,” said Stobo. “All of this equipment is all from fundraising.”

Arts and Entertainment Arklan’s Got Talent toe-tappin’ reunion GRACEY PATTERSON AND AJA ROWDEN

ANDREW MCDOUGALL Carleton Place High School

CARLETON PLACE – Have you ever heard a wonderfully infectious melody and just had to sing along? Or maybe you’ve been driving down the highway and enjoyed belting out your favourite song. That always draws interesting looks from other drivers. For the past 26 years, Brad Mills has been doing his part in helping to make Carleton Place more musical. As the music teacher at Carleton Place High School, he has kept busy with many irons in the fire. In addition to instilling a love of music in his own classes, Mills has led junior bands, senior bands, stage bands, choirs, musical ensembles and musicals. Now in his last year of teaching (retirement is on the horizon for Mills in June), Saturday, June 19 will mark a special milestone for Mills when current and past students come together for the CPHS Music Reunion. This once-in-a-lifetime musical extravaganza will include performances by the CPHS concert band and choir with special guest performers who are past students. The afternoon will start with alumni arriving early to rehearse together. That night, reunion participants will join the current band and choir in the special performance at 7 p.m. In addition to the orchestral numbers, several solo and group appearances are scheduled. The very popular Bowes Brothers will be performing. While the school motto may read “Enter to Learn, Go Forth To Serve,” many of Mills students must have read it as “Go Forth to Sing.” This event is already generating quite a bit of buzz. Past performers are signing up to either play in the band, sing in the choir or simply come out to watch

what’s sure to be an unforgettable night of music and memories. In addition to the music, there will be a slideshow with many fun photos from the last 26 years, footage from past CPHS musicals and a display of past posters preceded by a potluck dinner. It will be a special time of reuniting with old friends and merriment. There will be a few funny anecdotes and stories which may or may not leave Mills blushing. Past musicstudents are encouraged to learn more about this event in advance by visiting or the Facebook site (CPHS Music Reunion). The websites include more information on the day’s schedule and performer registration. Tickets for the general public will available at the door for $3. See you on June 19.

Arklan Community Public School

CARLETON PLACE – My hands are still sore from clapping so much! On April 30 Arklan’s had its sixth annual talent show. There were so many spectacular performances at this awesome event. To start, Melody Whitehouse entered in her cute bee costume and sang her own original song. Joel Hall played an excellent piece on the piano and Mollie Grabe also tinkled the ivories beautifully. The Irwin family showed off three very talented sisters : Laura performed an authentic Irish dance. Lindsay did an energetic Irish Sword Dance and Leah amazed everyone with her graceful Point Ballet moves. Joycelyn Sinclair-Bates was next and she blew away the audience with her beautiful opera song from Phantom of the Opera. Shannon Bell continued the show by dancing her way on stage to a pop song by Miley Cyrus. Anthony Porcari rocked it away on his electric guitar. Finally, to finish off the show five very talented Grade 7 girls; Emma Owen, Anika Bucholtz, Allie Melbourne, Cayla Anderson, and Allie Barry danced to a mix of songs. They floored everyone with their expert moves. We couldn’t have had the show without our entertaining MCs, Evan Sauve, Chris Fitchett and Spencer Anderson. In addition, we can’t forget our backstage crew, Taylor Crampton, Shane Mackinnon, and Austin Galletti who worked the music and lights. Mrs. Pentz, Mrs. Strachan and Mr. Patterson were the teachers who made this all happen and who organized the whole show. All the performances were amazing with Lindsay Irwin being chosen to represent Arklan at the CPHS talent show. Who knew Arklan had so much talent?

A hot new read on the shelf Dentistry@Carleton Place

After years of working with the Ministry of Natural Resources, Beckwith author Jim Moran has taken his experiences and mixed them with imagination. Over four years, Moran wrote “The Sentinel: A Wildfire Story” and is spreading the word about his book. Moran said the fictional story is about a mythical project fire, which engulfs 200,000 acres. While the event and characters are fictional, the way the province responds to the fire is established through Moran’s experiences with the ministry. He worked for MNR for 29 years, spending 17 of those years in fire management. He was fire management supervisor in Sudbury for a number of years. “The characters are fictional because I wanted the story line to be fun and interesting,” he said. “But the Ministry of Natural Resources fire program’s strategy and tactics (in the book) are based on fact.” Moran said he feels many people in Ontario do not understand how the ministry’s fire program is organized and what it takes for fire protection. “This is an opportunity for me to tell that story,” said Moran. The sentinel is a 300-year-old white pine tree, located on a ridge at White River in Ontario. “I paint the picture from the sentinel’s

point of view,” said Moran, along with two other key characters: a female bear and her cub who become trapped in the fire. “It’s not just a fire story,” said Moran. “It has conflicts, failures and all kinds of things.” The book is available for purchase at Brush Strokes and Read’s Book Shop in Carleton Place, The Book Nook in Perth, Chapters/Indigo, Amazon and Barnes and Noble. On June 25, Moran will be at Read’s form 7 to 9 p.m. to sign copies of the book.

DENTAL IMPLANTS Many patients are concerned that any tooth replacements may not look, feel or function like the originals. With dental implants, however, there is no need for concern because, dental implants actually replace not only the missing tooth or teeth, but the roots too, for complete stability and a natural look and feel. If you’re missing more than one tooth, ask how implants can function as anchors to secure and stabilize bridges and dentures.

ALDEBERT, Doris Elizabeth (nee MOFFATT) We can’t believe it has been 25 years... Hard to imagine how many tears Have been shed for you along the way You’re missed by all of us every day. We know you’ve got company, in that we delight, To laugh and talk with, to keep you from fright. You’re still our daughter, big sister...our love Wrapped up in our angel, on watch from above. We’ll see you soon...give a hug to Dad, Bob and Steven for us.

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

way of saying “thank you” to the many families who have shown confidence in us since we came to Almonte in 1973. Some families are unable to visit this book on the anniversary of the death of those they love. For this reason we are proud to publish these names weekly as our way of saying...“We Remember”.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our family, friends, neighbours and co-workers for the wonderful support you gave to Jean during her illness and continue to give us as we grieve the loss of a cherished wife, mother and grandmother. Thank you for all of your kind words of prayer and condolences, and for all of your generous contributions of food, flowers and memorial donations.

Breathe through a straw for 60 seconds. That’s what breathing is like with cystic fibrosis. No wonder so many people with CF stop breathing in their early 30s.

Nicole graduated High School at the young age of 15. In 1972 she graduated from St. Lawrence College achieving honours in all subjects in her Commercial Stenographic field of study. She was the first student to ever achieve this distinctive honour. In 1974 Nicole began working for the Union of Canadian Transport Employees as secretary to the Executive Secretary and Senior Staff Officer. She met Larry and moved with him to Ashton in 1984 and became highly recognized in the area as an exceptionally artistic cake decorator and enjoyed oil and water painting in her spare time. Nicole was a dedicated, loyal and loving wife to her husband Larry and her son Shawn. She was cherished and loved by many close friends in and around the Carleton Place/Ashton area. Nicole’s image and contributions to the Ashton community will never be forgotten. Sincere thanks go out to so many caregivers in the Ottawa Regional Cancer Center and palliative care floor of the Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital. Special thanks go out to Melanie and Elizabeth of the Bayshore nursing staff. You made Nicole’s final months so happy and comforting. The numerous close and great friends that helped her through the last 3 years, providing her with happiness, laughter and a greater quality of life, major thanks from Shawn and Larry. Donations in lieu of flowers can be made to the Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital Building Fund or the Canadian Cancer Society. CL19990

We are truly blessed with family and friends. Isabel, Doug, Karen & families

Sincere appreciation to Steve O’Keefe, Bev Saunders and the staff at Carleton Place Tubman Funeral Homes for their caring guidance and assistance with planning. They ensured that the visitation and memorial service were a special tribute to a very special lady. The flowers from the Blossom Shop were very special, and perfectly displayed Jean’s favourites. Special thank you to Rev. Tony Boonstra for a lovely memorial service. His comforting words presented an accurate and heartwarming portrayal of Jean’s loving spirit, and we will always cherish those words. Thanks also to organist, Linda Beiglee, for the beautiful music which made the service so special, especially as music was so dear to Jean’s heart. Special thank you to the St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church choir (Jean’s much-loved second family) and the ladies of the church for providing a lovely luncheon, and to all of the other church people who helped out.

All hail the Queen of the Red Hats


It was a sea of red as far as the eye could see in the Army, Navy, and Air Force Club in Carleton Place on May 26. The ladies came in all shades of red and purple and wearing their best bling and most stunning red hats. They had come to support our Grand Queen Eileen Casselman of The Valley Vixens, who was hosting the Red Hat Queen’s Luncheon. In total, 68 ladies wearing every imaginable shape of red hat attended regally dressed in proper colors of red and purple that had driven from north, south, east, west and many surrounding areas of the Ottawa Valley. Not quite sure what to expect, they entered quietly where a beautifully decorated entrance table held photo albums of past events of our active group, a stunning guest book for all to sign and a uniquely decorated coffee can to hold door prize tickets that would be drawn throughout the day. The hall had been transformed into an elegant party room with a true red hat theme. Above the door prize table hung a caricature sketch of

our fun loving Queen. But the main highlight of the hall was a seven-foot throne that towered over guests. Our Queen would sit on her throne upon her arrival. Shortly after noon, we heard a voice yell the Queen had arrived. She carefully stepped out of a stretch limousine as the chauffeur opened the door and offered a hand. She was regally dressed in a flowing red cape, long satin dress, with her jeweled crown and matching accessories and shading her from the sun was a parasol truly fit for a Queen. She entered to the sound of her subjects singing God Save Our Queen. It was a sight to behold. From her throne she made her welcoming speech and with the wave of her hand the events began. We started our afternoon with a bounty of food. Once the meal had finished the floor was opened to topics of upcoming events. That was followed by entertainment from The Mystics from Prescott, a group of musical/ comedy grandmothers that got tired of knitting. Ladies dressed in biker gear opened with Born to Be Wild in honor of our motorcycle Queen. Another biker chick walked around the room with her young man who was kept by her side with a studded dog collar and chain. The

entertainment did not disappoint as the Mystics continued to keep the guests laughing, clapping and cheering. Tickets were sold on a 50/50 draw and half would be donated to the Queen’s chosen charity, Interval House.

Beckwith tax rate still lowest in Lanark County KATIE MULLIGAN


BECKWITH – After crunching numbers throughout the winter, Beckwith Township has passed its annual budget. Beckwith Reeve Richard Kidd said the tax rate is going down by 1.33 per cent in total, with Beckwith’s share increasing by 2.75 per cent. Beckwith represents one of three portions of the tax bill each homeowner receives, with the rest coming from Lanark County and the school board. Kidd said the average assessment growth within the township was six per cent. “Your tax bill may be going up depending on the increase of the individual assessment of your home,” said Kidd. “Our tax rate is still the lowest in Lanark County.” The upcoming year will feature a number of capital projects thanks to provincial and federal shared funding. The Lake Park Road reconstruction, the completion of the new trails, the artificial turf multipurpose sporting field and new lights at the softball diamond in Beckwith Park are all partially funded by government grants. Work on Powell Street and Ford Road in the township also needs to be done in 2010, as well as reroofing the municipal office.

The policing contract with the is OPP increasing by roughly $50,000 after entering into a new contract as the operating costs have gone up. One of the biggest ongoing maintenance costs is gravelling. Kidd said about one quarter of the roads in Beckwith are graveled each year, which requires about $120,000 worth of gravel. Kidd said staff generated quite a bit of money this year for a number of departments through grants and rentals of the soccer field and ice surface, “which helps keep the budget down.” Money was also saved because of the lack of use of salt and sand in the winter. “We were able to save money there, which we’ve put into roads projects,” said Kidd. The reeve said each year, there is public concern when it comes to roads. While many residents would like to see their roads resurfaced, said Kidd, Lake Park Road is a major project to complete. Over the next three years, major work will have to be done on the Ninth Line, Seventh Line and Scotch Corners Road. “That will eat up a lot of money,” said Kidd. “They are high traffic.” No federal and/or provincial money will be available for those projects. “That will make it tougher on our budget,” he said.

Public Open House Mississippi Valley Conservation and the Town of Carleton Place are considering a proposal to construct the MVC’s new administrative office building in Roy Brown Park on Hwy 7. The public is invited to view preliminary information regarding this proposal at an Open House on: Monday June 14, 2010 From: 4:00pm to 7:30 pm Where: Town Hall Auditorium Comments can also be submitted to either the Town or MVC

Watering Restrictions Water restrictions are in effect from May 1 to September 30 You Can: • Water from 5:00am to 9:00am and 7:00pm to 11:00pm • Water on odd numbered calendar days if you have an odd numbered address • Water on even numbered calendar days if you have an even numbered address • Water new sod and fresh seed any day or time for one week without any penalties

You Cannot: • Water from more than one hose connection • Water outside the hours of 5:00am to 9:00am and 7:00pm to 11:00pm • Water on odd numbered calendar days if you have an even numbered address • Water on even numbered calendar days if you have an odd numbered address The fine for a water usage violation is $55.00 plus a $15.00 court cost. Please advise the Town Hall when you have installed fresh sod, so complaints and concerns can be answered without staff having to check the site. There are several ways to cut down on water use and still enjoy your property. Planting drought resistant plants and using mulch are probably the best methods for homeowners. Perhaps the number one reason to limit your water usage at all times is because the fire hydrants throughout town run off of the same system that supplies our homes and businesses with water. Over usage of the system results in a lowering of water pressure and supply, in the event of a fire the pressure and supply may not be adequate. 372090
