MISSISSIPPI MILLS – Several homeowners are fighting to keep their homes after their landlord informed them they have a year to move out before their houses are demolished. While the houses are owned by the individuals, the land they were built on is leased. “We’ll drag it out as long as we can,” said resident Robin Hanfield, during a meeting of residents at the home of Roger and Carmine Doyle on July 12. “The long term ideal would be to form a co-op and sever the land.” The two cottages and six homes are situated along the shoreline of Mississippi Lake, just off of Mississippi Road near Highway 7. Residents received notice from the law offices of Dickie & Lyman Lawyers LLP, dated May 25, informing them that their tenancy was to be terminated next summer, and that they must move out. The news came as a shock to the residents, some of whom have called the area home for decades. Brian Lynch’s parents, for example, bought their house in 1959. “They had a bill of sale. Mom has records going right back,” said Lynch. “There was no end date (to the lease.) They own the cottage, but they lease the land.” Lynch says his mother is devastated at the news.

Testing the waters in Lanark County KATIE MULLIGAN katie.mulligan@metroland.com

LANARK COUNTY – While swimmers at City of Ottawa beaches have daily assurances it’s safe to go for a dip, the beaches in Leeds, Grenville and Lanark are only tested every seven days for high bacteria levels. Jane Lyster, director of health protection with the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit, said the organization currently tests 22 beaches, from Pakenham to Brockville, once per week to let swimmers know when there could be health risks.

“Basically, (the weekly testing) provides a snapshot of the water quality,” she said. The reason the health unit tests for bacteria once a week, which is the provincial minimum requirement, is because it only has two public health inspectors on staff to test 22 publicly-owned beaches in the area. Five samples are taken from various parts of each beach. If the average count from the samples is greater than 100 E. coli per 100 ml of water, the beach is closed until the next clean test.

Down-on-the-farm fun at 152nd annual Almonte Fair The near-constant threat of thunderstorms and a few scattered showers weren’t enough to dampen spirits at the 152nd-annual Almonte Fair. Visitors from around the region arrived at the fair, held July 16-18, to take in the shows and displays, experience some thrills at the midway, and maybe learn a few things about rural Ontario. Friday, July 16 saw the ever-popular demolition derby, while Saturday, July 17 brought a full slate of activities capped off by local songstress Gail Gavan. Horses – large and small – were paraded around the grandstand on Sunday, July 18. The highlight of the fair for long-standing North Lanark Agricultural Society volunteer Mary Turner was an unexpected presentation at the grandstand. Mississippi Mills Mayor Al Lunney and North Lanark Agricultural Society president Alyssa Toshack presented Turner with a certificate and bouquet of flowers for her tireless 50 years with the agricultural society. At a loss for words, Turner thanked the mayor and society for recognizing her years of service. Story and photos by Patricia Lonergan

Quiet along the tracks in Lanark, Renfrew counties JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com

Municipalities are looking for ways to ensure the CPR line from Smiths Falls to North Bay isn’t lost. With it becoming less and less likely a saviour will come forward to maintain the line, affected councils are looking for ways to ensure the transportation corridor remains intact. Carleton Place CAO Paul Knowles said at this point, there have been no updates as to what will be done with the rail line. “As long as there is no action, the tracks are still there…that is good news to me,” said Carleton Place Mayor Paul Dulmage. “(CPR) could have gotten rid of it a lot quicker if they wanted to.” Dulmage said the tracks are not as important as the corridor itself, which is something he would like to see protected. Early in the year, Carleton Place council sent a letter to affected municipalities to find out if everyone was on the same page. A joint municipality meeting was held in Renfrew County. “Basically, the same sentiments were passed on from all of the communities,” said Dulmage. “They

don’t want to lose the corridor.” The issue is in the hands of the upper tier governments – Renfrew and Lanark counties locally – rather than in each individual municipality. The mayor said his main concern is seeing the ownership remain consistent. “We don’t want to own a mile of track here and a mile of track there,” he said, which would defeat the purpose of owning any of the land at all. McNab-Braeside Mayor Mary Campbell said municipal councils should start thinking about what should be done with the corridor. At its July 6 meeting, councillors discussed the pros and cons of keeping the route in public hands as a recreational trail. Campbell reported to council that one of the two unnamed companies that had expressed an interest in taking over the rail line from CP Rail has dropped out of the running and the other is only interested in the Mattawa-to-North Bay section. If CP Rail can’t find someone interested in running it as a short line operation by this fall, it will likely sell the rail tracks for scrap and sell the land, she said. Campbell suggested each munic-

ipal council along the route needs to form a position on the matter because CP Rail has made it clear it wants to sell the whole corridor as a unit and not in small pieces. So it makes sense such a purchase would have to be handled by Renfrew and Lanark counties if their municipalities along the track agree it should be kept in public hands, she said. Campbell said the most likely use would be for a recreational trail, although Petawawa Mayor Bob Sweet suggested it could be used as a highway. “Not through Sand Point and Braeside, you don’t,” she retorted. Campbell said that in stretches where the CP Rail line is narrow, such as Sand Point, there may be better uses, such as parking. Coun. Jim McGregor recommended the counties buy the corridor for future use as a recreational trail if the price isn’t too onerous. “I think it would be a wonderful asset,” he said. “But the big question is, can we afford it.” Campbell wondered if the area needs a second recreational trail when the CN line trail isn’t fully utilized. “I’m still not convinced recreation trails bring more economic activity (to an area),” she said.

Bridge Street Bazaar offers a bit of everything KATIE MULLIGAN katie.mulligan@metroland.com

CARLETON PLACE – The annual Bridge Street Bazaar is returning to Carleton Place for the fifth year in a row, offering more and more each year. Organizers are expecting more than 140 vendors and artisans to line Bridge Street in Carleton Place on Saturday, July 31. From 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., vendors at booths and tables will feature everything from crafts to food to demonstrations. BIA co-ordinator Cathie McOrmond said the event will include all kinds of new vendors, plus a circus attraction, petting zoo, pony rides, the Carleton Place Canadians Jr. A hockey team, candy floss and more. “As far as the vendors go, we have everything from soup to nuts,” said McOrmond. A portion of proceeds from this year’s event will also go to the Lanark County Food Bank. Last year, 140 vendors registered for the event. McOrmond estimates that number will easily be matched this year. To tie the bazaar together with the Riverside Jam, pontoon boats will travel from the public dock, located at the end of Mill Street, to the grounds at Riverside Jam. Anyone is welcome to enjoy the free boat rides, but only those with valid passes can get off at the Jam. The boat rides will run Thursday and Friday, noon to 7 p.m. and Saturday, 9 a. m. to 4 p.m. Rickshaw rides will also take festival-goers to and from Riverside Park from the downtown core. “We’re really trying to engage everybody and get the

whole community involved,” said McOrmond. The Carleton Place Sister City Committee and the Lanark County 4-H Club will run a barbecue and the Masonic Lodge will host a pancake breakfast. Arts Carleton Place members will “show off their artistic talents” and the Carleton Place and District Farmers’ Market will relocate, for one day only, to Bridge Street. Square dancing and Thai Chi demonstrations will help make the bazaar one of the most unique events in the Ottawa Valley. “(The bazaar) is a great opportunity to get out and promote your business or organization,” said McOrmond. “Whether you have something to sell or something to show off, this is the place to do it.” Live entertainment will take place throughout the day, featuring local acts of all ages, said McOrmond. The vendor registration deadline is July 23 and the fee for setting up a table is $20. For registration information, contact the BIA office at 613-257-8049 or email cmcormond@carletonplace.ca STREET CLOSURE The downtown section of Bridge Street will be closed to vehicular traffic from 7:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. However, the street will not reopen until all vendors have been able to clean up and vacate to ensure safety. Parking is not permitted in the municipal parking lot, beginning at 3 a.m. on July 31. All cars along the downtown portion of Bridge Street must be removed by 7:30 a.m., or else they will be towed.

Two new candidates enter council race in Almonte Ward Dual new entries doubles Almonte Ward candidate list to four, including incumbent Coun. Garry Dalgity DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

MISSISSIPPI MILLS – The race for Almonte Ward became a lot more crowded this month after two new candidates threw their hats into the ring. Both Christopher O’Brien and Bernard Cameron filed their papers to run on July 9. O’Brien made his decision to run just after the votes were tallied for the 2006 race, and he lost his candidacy to Alex Gillis, 912 votes to 905. “I promised I would do it again,” said O’Brien. O’Brien sold his business The Miller’s Tale, which is now Mill Street Books, on June 1 of this year. “I’d like to have a part time job,” said O’Brien, who is also looking to go back to school to get his MA in counselling at St. Paul University in Ottawa, though he is quick to say he would be able to juggle his studies, council duties and family responsibilities. “I’m not overly argumentative and I listen well,” said O’Brien of his qualities. He added that he wants to bring some transparency to council and increase public participation in civic life.

“I see council as a board of directors, like directing the traffic,” O’Brien said. “You have to divest yourself of some of the power,” and put it in the hands of citizens to run initiatives. He indicated he would like to encourage greater dialogue and cooperation between area churches and schools. In terms of transparency, O’Brien would like to see council meetings broadcast online and votes recorded more of-

While certain issues are very much to the fore, all politics remain local. “When’s my street going to get paved? When can I get a stop sign on my street?” were some of the questions he was asked while knocking on doors in 2006. As a way of increasing public awareness of the area and boosting tourism, O’Brien also suggested that tourism

bumper stickers could be mailed out to residents along with their tax bills. “It’s like free advertising every day,” said O’Brien. Almonte Ward’s other newest candidate, Bernard Cameron, was born and raised in Almonte, and the addition of a new grandchild to his family has refocused his priorities. “My grandson, my fifth grandchild, was born here on Father’s Day, the 20th of June,” said Cameron. That got him thinking about changes he wanted to see in the community. “If you complain about something and do nothing, you’re only criticizing yourself,” Cameron said. “I think I have the ability to bring change to council.” One change he would like to see is more technological innovation used by the town. “(I see) a reluctance to do things differently, to embrace new technologies,” Cameron said. He would like to see the new waste water treatment plant twinned with a waste disposal plant. “If it (a water treatment plant) is put in the right place, it can be twinned with a waste disposal site,” Cameron said. “The extra heat (generated) from the gasification (of waste) could be used to heat the water treatment plant.” Cameron helped run a predecessor to

“If you complain about something and do nothing, you’re only criticizing yourself...I think I have the ability to bring change to council.” Bernard Cameron Almonte Ward council candidate the Almonte youth club in the early 1970s, and is urging more recreation options for youth, with the town’s growing population of young families. “We’ve got a river that runs through the town and we don’t use it,” Cameron said. “We should have a beach.” He also indicated he wants to look at the possibility of having an indoor pool like Carleton Place. Cameron taught high school English in Chatham, Ont., for about 20 years, before returning to the Ottawa Valley in 1993. He taught at Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute and Perth District Collegiate Institute, before returning home to teach at ADHS, where he retired three years ago.

Bluesfest worth the back pain

Troubled waters at area beaches

KATIE MULLIGAN Taking A Mulligan

H

ow can one beach be open, and another one closed – and both be within sight of each other? Last week, the beach at Riverside Park in Carleton Place was closed because of high E. coli levels. Fair enough. Directly across the Mississippi River, on the north bank, is the smaller beach at Centennial Park. That beach stayed open. At what point in the river would a swimmer, making their way from Centennial to Riverside Park, have to stop? Just the day before, the river was full at that very same spot, with swimmers taking part in a triathlon relay. The day the beach at Riverside Park was closed, people were still splashing about in the waters of the Mississippi. This was in spite of handwritten signage informing bathers that the beach was closed because of high bacteria levels. That’s part of the frustration to be found in this region with the testing of water at area beaches. The Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit has only two people to test water once a week at beaches all the way from Brockville to Carleton Place, Kemptville to Gananoque, and at numerous points in between. We have no doubt that the unit’s water testers are doing top-notch work, and are doing the best job they can. Now, Lanark County does not have the resources that, say, the City of Ottawa does, where waters at beaches like Andrew Haydon Park, Mooney’s Bay and Petrie Island are tested on a daily basis. And the water testing done in the health unit’s coverage area do meet the provincial minimum of once a week. But bacteria levels can change drastically, from one day to the next, influenced by rain, run-off, wildlife, pets and temperatures. Surely, this area can afford some manner of authoritative-looking signage that will draw a bather’s attention, and testing that does not allow for seven days of lag time.

Prohibit idling at malls

A beautiful display of quilts

Dear Editor, As I write, this is one of the hottest days this summer, but I had to go to the pharmacy. On my way outside, a young man was sitting in an idling truck, with all the windows open and the air conditioner blasting. I asked him kindly to turn off the motor and explained that it does the environment harm. He wasn’t too keen on my remarks and said that he was waiting for a friend. She came and off they drove. Doesn’t anyone understand that air conditioning only cools the pollution and, secondly, do we have to take our living room with us when we drive ? Malls should have no idling signs, winter and summer, that would be the responsibility of the mall owner (I went into the pharmacy to complain) and we the public should ask for them! Reva Dolgoy Almonte

Dear Editor, I visited the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum and saw one of the most beautiful displays of quilts ever. Turns out they are the works of the Almonte Crazy Quilters. It’s a collection of their work over the past 10 years and there are more than 100 items. What a talented group. It will be there until the end of August. Don’t miss it. You will be amazed.

Every year, I am faced with a dilemma. Do I drive all the way into Ottawa, have a fantastic time and pay for it the following day? I have to face it. I can’t do the late nights like I did back in college. These days, I have become a huge fan of sleep. However, Bluesfest only happens once per year and my internal conversation always leads me in one direction: this may be my only chance to see (insert amazing, yet sadly aging, artist here). So, I go. I know I am not alone because I have seen a number of local faces, waiting in ticket lines and battling the crowds. Other than the impending doom of exhaustion the following day at work, I love it. First, my hat is off to the person who decided it would be a good idea to have a free water bottle filling station. As a person with Irish roots, I can’t handle the heat and need water, so having to pay $3 per bottle throughout the evening does not impress me. I must have looked like a kid in a candy shop, filling up my stainless steel bottle, while turning the pressure too high, therefore spraying myself in the face. The bicycle parking is something else I keep talking about. While it’s not really convenient for me to get on my bike and ride into Ottawa after work for an evening show, I love this new addition. What a great way for people from the surrounding area to not only get to Bluesfest hassle free, but also not have to worry about their ride being stolen. I’m usually not a fan of giant festivals. I prefer to stay here and enjoy the fact our communities host high calibre events, without the monstrous lineups or long commute. However, a diverse variety of music, endless food opportunities, a water filling station and great memories? It’s worth the commute and painful wake up call the next day.

No purchase option available BIRCH POINT, from front page “She thought it was going to be here forever,” he said. While many residents have indicated they plan to fight the move, one couple, Sean and Mary O’Brien, has already decided to look for another place to live. “I have signed the paper to leave. I am out of here next September. We can’t afford it,” said Sean. “We have to do this. “We bought down here because we thought we’d retire down here,” he added. “It’s been very, very stressful.” Other residents feel they have no choice but to fight, since they feel they have few other options open to them. “We are the only senior citizens here. We cannot start over. Where do I go?” asked Carmen. “Had I known we would’ve been in this position, I wouldn’t have come (to live here).” The couple moved into their home in 1997. The residents said they had put forward an offer to make the land their own. “We want to buy it (the property.) Put a price on it,” said Mary. Instead, she said, they received, “zero response.” Over the years that people have lived along Birch Point Lane, additions have been built and renovations completed. The residents suggest that such moves, which were signed off by the late landlord, Bill Burns, indicated to them that their residency in the area was a permanent one.

“We had signed permits from the Burns’ (family) to build up our homes,” said Janfield. “The property owners let us invest in our homes,” added fellow resident Terry Hect. “These are our homes, our investments.” The residents also claim that the land is built on a 50-year flood plain, which last saw a flood in 1998 in the spring after the ice storm. “It’s wetlands. They can’t build down here,” said Janfield. “It doesn’t seem viable whatsoever that they would overcome (flooding) down here.” Lawyer John Dickie is representing the numbered company that now owns the land, 2237382 Ontario Inc. “Obviously, the tenants are in a position that looks somewhat sympathetic,” he said. “What readers need to know is that they are on rented land. They know they were on rented land…you may not continue on forever. They have had a really good run.” While his client has no intention of demolishing any of the homes on the site, “if they get left behind, they will be knocked down,” Dickie said. “In effect, it’s their choice…The tenants are quite at liberty to move their homes.” There are a number of reasons why Dickie’s client is looking to divest of the residences near the waterfront. “They’re looking to get out of the renting issue,” said Dickie. “The fact that

Weekly water monitoring provides snapshot of risks BEACH, from front page “You can imagine (the 22 beaches) times five samples, plus the distance between all beaches,” said Lyster. “It’s quite an investment (of time and money).” Swimming in a body of water with high E. coli counts can result in skin irritation, eye, ear and throat infections or intestinal illness. Different factors that can cause a variation in bacteria counts are wind, temperature changes and rainstorms, said Lyster. A high number of bathers, birds and animals, sewage spills, private sewage disposal systems and pleasure boats are also potential factors, according the health unit. Jean-Guy Albert, program manager with Ottawa Public Health, said “extenuating circumstances” in Ottawa led the city to exceed provincial regulations and conduct daily tests. “We elected to test seven days per week because there were a lot of events at the beaches” – like festivals – and a “big demand from the public,” said Albert, as there are close to 850,000 people in the city, plus the visiting greater population. Albert said E. coli levels can change quite drastically, depending on the area. “Factors may vary from day to day, depending on the beach,” he said. While Petrie Island and Westboro beaches in Ottawa are more susceptible

to external factors and have fluctuating numbers, others, such as Brittania Beach, remain generally constant. Albert said he cannot say if testing once per week would put anyone at risk. “It varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction,” he said. Lyster said the current setup is not a perfect system and the health unit is constantly on the lookout for better methods, such as a predictive modelling. That type of system would allow staff to look at factors over time and allow them to predict what the water quality would be given upcoming conditions, as opposed to the “snapshot,” which looks into the past. Switching to a predictive model is something the health unit has been doing preliminary research on, but won’t be able to do so at this time. “It requires a lot of technology, infrastructure and capacity. We’re only looking at it from afar, as it is equipment and manpower intensive,” said Lyster. “It’s safe to say we are using the capacity we have to the best of our ability.” In early July, when Riverside Beach in Carleton Place was closed, Centennial Beach, located directly across the river, remained open. While the bacteria count at Riverside Beach was high that week, said Lyster, they remained at a safe and acceptable level across the river. The reason for that

While the City of Ottawa posts E. coli counts daily, Lyster said, in the past, the public has been more interested in whether the beaches were open or not instead of the specific counts. “It’s a fairly black and white thing,” she said, though if feedback indicated

the public wanted to know the specifics, the unit would look into it. Lyster said the health unit strictly follows the provincial protocols, including the beach management protocol. The beaches are generally tested from June until September. With files from Patricia Lonergan

Residents oppose skate park location in Gemmill Park DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

MISSISSIPPI MILLS – Residents who live near the site of the proposed skateboard park in Gemmill Park gathered at the site last week to express opposition to building the facility near their homes. By a show of hands, residents indicated they don’t want to see a skateboard park behind the swing set near the park’s entrance, close to the community centre’s parking lot. “It’s a very invasive proposal,” said Fran Maguire, whose house would be closest to the proposed park. “Nothing has been formally passed at council at this time. We’re researching,” Mississippi Mills recreation manager Calvin Murphy told those gathered at the park on July 14. Youth in the area have been without a skateboard park since the facility next to the community centre was dismantled last year to make way for renovations. After a committee was struck to find a new location for a skateboard park, “the one area that came to the fore was Gemmill Park,” said Murphy. While the location behind the swing set is the preferred option, other possible Gemmill Park locations include the bottom of the hill that houses the amphitheatre and near the tennis courts. “We’re concerned with visibility,” said

Residents show their displeasure at the proposed location of a skateboard facility in Gemmill Park by way of a show of hands during a public meeting on July 14. The top skateboard park location being considered would be behind the swing sets at the main entrance, close to neighbouring houses. not believe the town would look after the new skateboard park. “I run on that track every morning and it’s not well maintained,” said Maguire, who expressed concerns that the skateboard park would not be maintained either. Maguire noted that there was a lack of a police presence in the park, and that if law enforcement were to show up, it could impact her home, which would be closest

to the park. “They (the skateboarders) are going to scatter through our yards, if the police show up,” said Maguire. “The bad element will still present itself, in our back yard.” Coun. Jane Torrance, who sits on the police services board, promised to put in a call to the local Ontario Provincial Police detachment to ask them to step up patrols in the park. Resident Nora Rooney had made up and distributed maps of alternate locations where a skateboard park could be located within Gemmill Park. “I’m all for a skateboard park for the kids,” said Rooney, who asked that the town look at putting the park near the tennis courts. “They don’t know about the noise element,” she added. “I enjoy the kids. It’s just the ones late at night. (But) 99 per cent of the kids are great.” Hurrle did note that some of the young people had affected the reputation of the whole. “Certain individuals have ruined it for others,” Hurrle said. “This information is going to be going back for further discussion,” Murphy said, promising to convey concerns expressed at the meeting. “I’m not sure what the reaction will be.” The proposal is scheduled to go before the town’s culture and recreation committee on Thursday, Aug. 5. 402642-29-10

Murphy also told those assembled that no soil testing had been carried out on the preferred location. “We haven’t even got to the point of what type of structure it will be…It’s going to be costly, no doubt about that,” said Coun. Brenda Hurrle. “(But) this will be professionally done.” Maguire, however, indicated she did

CARLETON PLACE – Carleton Place students of yesteryear have the chance to enjoy a blast from the past next month. Carleton Place High School students of the 1940s and 1950s are being given the opportunity to catch up and share memories during a special reunion, to be held at Waterside Retirement Community, at 105 McNeely Ave. in Carleton Place. The gathering, which will take place Saturday, Aug. 21, will feature speaker Bob Hill, while musician Bernie Costello will set the mood with music from the 1940s and 50s. “This is going to be a fantastic reunion,” said organizer Mary Cook, well-known face across the Ottawa Valley. The afternoon will kick off at noon with a social hour and mingling, followed by lunch at 1 p.m. Cook is joined by fellow CPHS alumni and local faces Joan Hamilton and Audrey Wilson on the organizing committee for the Aug. 21 event. Father Lloyd Cummings of Westport, a former student of CPHS in the 1940s, will provide the blessing. Cook said the venue will be decorated with garnet and gold, the school’s colours. “We have people coming in from Toronto…Renfrew, Almonte, Perth and Ottawa,” said Cook. “This is going to be just wonderful.” Organizers said there is limited seating and spots will go quickly. Reservations will be taken until Aug. 7. For registration and information, contract the Waterside Retirement Community a 613-253-2010.

Donated flowers brighten up Almonte’s Kirkland Park DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

MISSISSIPPI MILLS – An Almonte supermarket is seeking to bridge the downtown core and the town’s periphery with flowers. Patrice’s Independent supermarket donated flowers like hastas and morning glories for the planters at Kirkland Park beside the post office, which were planted by one of the store’s employees. “I thought it was a good opportunity for businesses from the outskirts to tie into the downtown area,” said Guido Patrice, owner of the supermarket. “Sometimes there’s a void. There’s so many attractions in the downtown core and it feels like we miss out on that action. We are trying to be part of the action.” One bed of flowers has already been planted and the volunteer planter, Maureen Campbell, is looking at expanding the collection to the other two flower beds in the park. The flowers currently taking root are perennials, which means that, barring the unforeseen, they will be back up every spring. The supermarket’s donation was part of a cooperative effort between it and the town’s beautification committee. “Our beautification committee sent out a letter requesting the opportunity (to help beautify the park),” said Nicole

From left, Guido Patrice, owner of Patrice’s Independent Grocer, and Nicole Guthrie, the town of Mississippi Mills’ community and cultural programmer, beside the newly rejuvenated flowerbeds in Almonte’s Kirkland Park. Guthrie, the town of Mississippi Mills’ community and cultural programmer. “We know Maureen was thrilled when she came here…We were fortunate to make a connection with Independent Grocers.” Campbell and her husband also helped erect the wooden fence behind one of the

flower beds, and they have plans to put ferns in behind the wooden rails. Campbell was given the green light about two weeks ago to start work on the project and she took to it with gusto. “Maureen was very eager,” said Guthrie. She came to scout out her blank canvas on Friday, and the flowers were in the

ground by Wednesday. “When she has an idea, she gets it done,” added Patrice, noting Cammpbell builds gardens on the side, and also runs her own company that makes and installs wooden rail fencing, Over The Garden Rail. Last year, TYPS (Taking Young People Seriously) had used the flower beds to plant vegetables, as part of a “guerilla gardening,” campaign. This year, however, TYPS decided to focus its efforts on its garden behind the public library. Before TYPS and Independent came along, “they (the flower beds) had been dormant for a number of years,” said Guthrie. “We’re glad top be part of the beautification of downtown,” said Patrice. “We’re just thrilled that Guido could offer this to the town and it’s a fabulous addition to our Riverwalk,” said Guthrie. Guthrie added that she hopes the Riverwalk can continue to grow along the banks of the Mississippi River. “There is a significant area along the waterfront that has been left,” she said. She added that she has dreams about the Riverwalk wrapping around the Main Street Bridge near the hydro electric plant, and even extending the path out to the Mill of Kintail one day. “We’re not looking at saying we’re done,” said Guthrie. “(Let’s) see where it evolves.”

Community Youth centre concert raises $300 DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

CARLETON PLACE – Carleton Place band Denounced kicked off their concert career last week with a performance at the town’s youth club, which raised $300 for the facility. “It was a great way to kick start off their career,” said Aaron Homma, who organized the event and played with one of the five bands that performed on Friday, July 16. The event was a homecoming of sorts for Homma’s band, Killitorous, since their bassist’s father, Chris Milford, used to be the treasurer of the youth club, and the bassist, Matt Milford, or “Milkie” as he is known, was a regular at the club. “It was a nice way for him to return and give back to the community. It was nice to go back there,” said Homma. “We do these youth fundraising concerts with bands from Ottawa and Carleton Place…(and) all the kids come out. They don’t have to go to Ottawa to see a concert.” Homma commended the Carleton Place youth club, housed in a former fire hall on Mill Street, as being a great facility and concert venue.

“We were looking forward to playing there,” Homma said. “I always loved the club because it’s always such a great, fun venue. It was a wonderful time.” Homma said that he had played at the club before, and having played at youth clubs across the province, “at that venue, we always get treated right. It’s one of the nicest I’ve ever seen.” The band Denounced, with members from Carleton Place and Almonte kicked off the evening’s entertainment. They were followed by The Breathing Apparatus, Sleep is for the Dead, I Now Walk Into the Wild, and Homma’s band. Homma said that shows at the Carleton Place club normally bring in between $600 and $700. “There was a bit of a dip in attendance,” he said. But he noted that events like Bluesfest in Ottawa were drawing people away and, “we still had a lot of kids who came out.” Homma is already planning another fundraising concert at the youth club, with a tentative date of Saturday, Sept. 4. One Carleton Place singer he is trying to land for that concert is Joseph Asher. “Things like this really keep the youth centre going,” said Homma.

24 HOUR TOWING FREE AUTO RECYCLING Renfrew County forestry manager Jeff Muzzi carefully cuts pieces of a giant hogweed plant in White Lake. about the plants, which originated in Asia. “The first thing you need to know is that it’s big. It lives up to its giant name,” he said. “It has huge flowers, wide leaves, a long stalk and purple blotches – when you get a good look at this thing, you’ll realize nothing else looks like it.” Muzzi noted the White Lake plants sprang up next to the hayfield after they appeared in a nearby garden almost two years ago. Attractive in nature, the plants which resemble Queen Anne’s lace, don’t look out of place in a flower garden. On Friday, Alexandre Blain, a representative from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, was on hand to collect samples so the group could do DNA tests on the plant to further increase their understanding of this non-native species.

“Seal up the bag and leave it in the sun for a couple of weeks to kill all the seeds,” said Muzzi, who added that a mature giant hogweed plant can produce 100,000 seeds. After removing all the flower heads, he sawed through the stalk, falling the two-metre (almost seven-foot) plant. It was one of four or five plants growing beside a hayfield, the tallest of which had surpassed the threemetre mark (around 10 feet). “You need to kill the root stalk within a week or two – or it will grow again,” he added, noting that giant hogweed roots can grow more than a metre into the ground. He advised the workers to sever the stalk four or five inches below the ground. If not, the root will bud again. “If you don’t do it right, this is going to be an ongoing battle with the plants,” he said. Muzzi said he would return in a few weeks and would visit again in the spring to see if it was properly removed. Muzzi has been reading manuals and any material he can find

WHITE LAKE - Jeff Muzzi has received over 100 phone calls from Renfrew County residents who think they’ve spotted giant hogweed plants growing in the area, but only three claims have turned out to be legitimate. The third was confirmed this week in White Lake. Muzzi, the county’s forestry manager, has been inundated with calls since his office reported the arrival of giant hogweed plants in June. With recent media reports placing the giant weed in the spotlight, Muzzi’s phone has been ringing non-stop and he’s working late into the evening returning emails about the plants. In Renfrew County, giant hogweed plants have also been confirmed in the townships of Laurentian Valley and Whitewater Region. Others have been confirmed in Ottawa and, most recently, there have been conflicting reports about its appearance around Smiths Falls. It is the possible danger associated with the plant that has people buzzing. If the sap from the plant comes into contact with damp skin (perspiration will suffice) and the skin is exposed to sunlight, severe burns, blistering and painful sores may result. In some cases, permanent blindness has been reported. On the morning of July 16, more than 30 county and township roads employees joined Muzzi at a private residence on Point Road, just outside White Lake in McNab-Braeside Township. They were there to learn how to properly identify and eradicate the noxious plant. Road maintenance crews may encounter the weed while cutting roadside ditches, and last week’s session was an important step to ensuring the safety of the workers. Muzzi couldn’t over-emphasize the need to exercise caution. “I’ve worked alone in the bush for 30 years – I’ve been bitten, scratched and chased. I’m not a paranoid guy, but you’ll see how careful I am around this thing,” he said. When it came time to demonstrate how to dispose of the weed, Muzzi’s attire backed up his words. Clad in Tyvek coveralls with rubber boots, goggles and a pair of neoprene gloves over a pair of rubber gloves, Muzzi used shears to cut the flowers and put them in a plastic bag.

CARLETON PLACE – After growing up in Carleton Place, Katie Houston has been given the opportunity to enjoy community events from the inside. Houston, a student at Dalhousie University in Halifax, is home for the summer, working as the summer student in the Carleton Place BIA office. She will take on a variety of responsibilities, helping BIA co-ordinator Cathie McOrmond, until Aug. 26. “She is my right and left hand,” said McOrmond. The co-ordinator said Houston’s duties range from helping with the Bridge Street Bazaar to office work, filling in during vacation time, marketing and promotions and planning of upcoming events. “She has her finger in just about every pot,” said McOrmond. “She is an eager beaver…very competent. I can give her a project and away she runs with it.” Houston grew up in the town and attended Carambeck Public School, Caldwell Street Public School and Carleton Place High School. Following graduation, she completed four years of honours in English with minors in law and is about to enter into her second year of her master’s degree in English. Once completed, she will either do a doctorate in English or attend law school. Houston is no stranger to working within the community. She has experience working with Lanark-Frotenac-Lennox & Addington MP Scott Reid, as well as with the Hall of Valour.

“I just love being involved with the community and being able to have an active role in the events,” said Houston. “I love helping out people in the downtown.” Houston said she is particularly excited about being able to attend this year’s Bridge Street Bazaar. “For the last two years, I worked on weekends and couldn’t go,” she said. “I am excited I actually get to go this year.”

Carleton Place takes strong second in regatta PATRICIA LONERGAN patricia.lonergan@metroland.com

Paddlers tackled not only short and long distances during the Carleton Place Canoe Club’s annual regatta, they also had to contend with high winds and rough water during the first day of the event. Storm clouds threatened to drown out the event on Saturday, July 17, but racers were spared a deluge. However, organizers were forced to reduce the race distance from 500m to 200m due to high winds.

Carleton Place Canoe Club head coach Ryan Blair said the water was choppy and conditions were difficult for paddlers. Despite the last minute change, paddlers were pleased with the event. “This year’s event had the highest number of participants in recent years,” said Cathie McOrmond, vice commodore and fundraising director for the canoe club. “It was great to see many young paddlers on the Mississippi River at one time.” The Rideau Canoe Club won the Regatta Championship Cup with a total of 596 points.

and I’m really glad that I decided to participate,” added Chantelle Troy, manager and community relations officer of the CPDMH Foundation. “It was a challenge but very doable and I would like to thank Jenny and Heritage Fitness for organizing this event on our behalf.” Even the rain couldn’t dampen spirits during the inaugural event. “We were a little disappointed to see the rain on Saturday morning, but all of the riders completed their ride and at the end they were very proud of their accomplishment,” said Casey Caswell, director of programs and services for Heritage Fitness. “I would like to thank everyone who responded to Jenny’s challenge and helped us to once again pull off a great event in support of the Carleton Place Hospital.” With the first year under their belt, organizers are already looking to make next year’s event even bigger. “We don’t just want this to become another annual event on Heritage Fitness’s calendar, we want this to become the best annual event in the area,” Andress said.

Honeymoon adventure lands couple in CP PATRICIA LONERGAN patricia.lonergan@metroland.com

CARLETON PLACE – An unlikely cross-Canada honeymoon brought a couple cruising into Carleton Place on a pair of pack-laden bicycles on Friday, July 16. Adam Winchester, 26, and his new bride Katherine Winchester, 25, stopped in town about a month after leaving the shores of Prince Edward Island. The two took a week’s respite in Ottawa to visit friends before continuing their journey west, toward the Rockies and, eventually Vancouver. The two were married on June 12 and, by June 16, they were dipping the front tires of their bicycles in the Atlantic Ocean before turning westward for the journey of a lifetime. Both from the Maritimes, the two were originally working in Ontario, Adam said. They decided to leave their jobs to be closer to their family. With no mortgage or children, between jobs and still “young and naïve enough” to believe they can cycle 10,000 km across North America, the couple decided now was the time

to make this journey. Adam estimated it will take about three months to reach Vancouver. The two will then travel down the coast to San Diego. From there, the world is wide open. “It’ll depend how we’re feeling,” Adam said. “I’d love to do Australia.” While neither prepared specifically for this adventure, both are active. Katherine has completed Iron Mans and triathlons. Adam, meanwhile, used to cycle to work. He said they’re taking a slow jaunt across the country, biking four to six hours a day. They generally camp along the way unless they know someone in the area, Adam continued. The best part of the trip thus far has been the people they’ve met along the way, he continued. “We get to know the local people.” Adam said they met a couple from Quebec while they were in New Brunswick and later stayed with them when they got to Quebec. “Most people bike west to east, so we’re seeing lots who are going in the opposite direction,”

Newlyweds Adam and Katherine Winchester, who are biking their way across Canada for their honeymoon holiday, stopped off in Carleton Place recently. Here, they pose in front of the town hall. he said. “They inspire us.” Adam and Katherine met one cyclist from Australia who left Vancouver in April and hit snow storms in the Prairies. Adam said they hope to cross the Rockies before the snow starts flying again. The two spent the night in Appleton before continuing to Ompah, Bancroft and then into Northern Ontario, where they’ll

take the Trans Canada Highway once they reach Sudbury. Calling Carleton Place a “lovely town,” Adam said they met many friendly people during their brief stop. He indicated they expect to take a month crossing Ontario. “You really appreciate the size of our country when you bike it,” he said. He added that the adventure

really suits him and Katherine, and he hopes it will inspire others to be more active. “We enjoy it,” Adam said, noting it’s not always romantic. “I think if we’re together after six months, we’ll stay together.” You can follow Adam and Katherine Winchester online at www.biketrip.ca

Local cyclists tackle Tatlock Road for timed trial Temperatures in the 30s failed to deter seven riders from showimg up at Union Hall to ride the 15-km time trial on Tatlock Road July 6. With high humidity and a very light five km-per-hour breeze from the northwest, Rick Sudac (Ride with Rendall) finished fastest, with a time of 21:11, leading OBC’s Colin Campbell by over a minute. Neil Farrish finished a distant third, with a disappointing 24 minute ride. Fastest from ABC was Michael Coldwell with a season’s

best time of 24:43. Second ABC finisher, AnneMarie Carter-McAuslan, in her second ride of the season, turned out a credible performance with a time of 27:24. Carter-McAuslan was the first and only female finisher. Al Watson (OBC) came from Calabogie to ride for the first time on this course to finish with a commendable 24:45 result. Timekeeper John Warren was ably assisted by Sherry Warren and Dave McAuslan at the turn, and Bob Woods at the

start and finish. CROSS CANADA RIDE Scott and Kelsey Smithson riding a tandem, accompanied by Stephen Tosh on a recumbent, are now almost a month into their cross Canada ride in support of Almonte General Hospital. Covering over 150 km each day, they have made good progress and are now approaching the Ontario border. They are riding totally unsupported, carrying their own

camping gear and cooking their own food. After suffering freezing temperatures in the mountains, a stomach upset on the prairies and bald tyres in Manitoba, they are all set to tackle the rolling hills along

the north shore of Lake Superior. Bonnie Tosh is collecting pledges in support of the ride. Details available from Bonnie at 613-256-7470 or 613-371-9445 (Cell).

Capital United scores high in South Africa KATIE MULLIGAN katie.mulligan@metroland.com

After taking Canada by storm, Ottawa’s Capital United men’s soccer team went on to face some of the best soccer players in the world. The team, with members from West Carleton to the east end of Ottawa, won the national tournament in June, allowing them to advance to the Global Beer Champions 6v6 international amateur soccer tournament, held in the same location as the World Cup. Team member Kyle Washington, who grew up in Carp, said they returned from Johannesburg, South Africa not long after the early July tournament. “We were one of the best teams there,” he said. “We were unlucky to lose to Vietnam in the semifinals, but we won more games/ scored more goals than everyone other than Brazil.” Washington said the team was proud of their accomplishment overseas. The Canadian team kicked off the tournament in Group A, along with Vietnam, China and South Africa. On Canada Day, the team was ranked second after the round robin phase, right behind Brazil, who was ahead by

five goals. Canada beat Vietnam in the first game 1-0. They continued the winning streak in the second game, beating South Africa 3-0 and China 3-0. Capital United headed to the semifinals, where they lost 1-0 against Vietnam. In the finals, Vietnam lost to Brazil 3-0. “Vietnam was all over the field,” said Washington of the semifinal game. “We had a ton of chances, but fate wasn’t on our side that game.” The team felt the loss to Vietnam was “dishonest” due to the amount of playacting they were doing. “But at the end of the tournament, we held our heads high because we won the second most games among the 11 countries in the tournament (other than Brazil, tying with Vietnam),” said Washington. LOCAL TALENT Player Mark Krocko of Ashton was initially to join his teammates in South Africa, but was left with a difficult decision. Krocko, who is currently picking up courses over the summer in Ottawa, said he was too far behind on his thesis research and ended up having to

rank so high. “I wish I could have been there,” he said. “But (to see them play so well) was really satisfying for me.”

All fun and games at Beckwith Sports Camp KATIE MULLIGAN katie.mulligan@metroland.com

BECKWITH – Kids in Beckwith Township aren’t letting a little heat stop them from having a good time this summer. The annual Beckwith Sports Camp, which runs for eight weeks in the summer, has provided a variety of activities for youths aged nine to 13. Each week sees a different theme, from full weeks based on basketball, football and other “world sports” to a “back to nature” week, where participants had the chance to camp at Beckwith Park. Camp counsellor Melissa Kidd said since it always seems to rain for the camping trip, the kids set up their tents on the artificial soccer turf inside the Beckwith Recreation Complex. During the extremely hot days, sports campers played games on the plastic surface inside the arena to help stay cool. Occasionally, the sports camp will head to Beckwith Public School to join the day campers, aged three to nine. In previous years, said Reeve Richard Kidd, a school bus had to be rented to transport the kids. Since the creation of the connecting trail, the campers can now safely walk from the park to the school without going near the road. The two camps were originally one camp, said Melissa, but they were split into two approximately 10 years ago. The sports camp hosts an average of 30 to 40 kids per day, while a similar number attends the day camp. The sports camp was relocated to the park two years ago. The reeve said the sports camp has a ratio of seven counsellors to each child, while the day camp is five to one. While the extreme weather changes require counsellors to “be pretty creative,” said Melissa, access to the school and the recreation complex allows both camps to run smoothly and give the kids fun activities to participate in each day.

UCDSB trustees approve $335-million budget Deficit to be struck off the books by end of fiscal year

LAURA MUELLER AND MELISSA DI COSTANZA Trustees with the Upper Canada District School Board approved a $335.5-million budget for the 2010-11 fiscal year during a special board meeting last week. The budget marked the elimination of the last of the board’s deficit, said local trustee Bill MacPherson. “Next year, we’re going in free and clear.� The board will spend $214.9 million on classroom expenditures this year, including teachers’ salaries, staff development, textbooks, and classroom supplies – that’s more than $8 million higher than last year. The costs of non-classroom expenses, including the costs for administration, principal and vice-principal salaries, school operations and transportation will be roughly $891,000 less than last year, at $98.65 million. Costs associated with principals and vice-principals will be roughly $165,000 less than last year, at $15.35 million. The board decided to strike a staffing review committee to examine all staffing lines. The board will also receive monthly reports from its special education advisory committee on the deployment of

educational assistants. All-day kindergarten (Early Learning Program) will be introduced this fall in 22 classes at 11 schools (including Maple Grove Public School in Lanark village), but the board has also created a new

MacPherson said. “But we’re hoping that it will help us retain our competitive edge,� by encouraging families to enroll their children in the public board for kindergarten, MacPherson said.

“Our strategic plan is moving our board from an industrial-aged education system to a knowledge-driven, meta thinking, digitally organized board of education.� Greg Pietersma UCDSB board chairman Ready to Learn (R2L) program, offering 37 play-based kindergarten classes at another 10 schools, including The Stewart School in Perth. The full-day kindergarten and boardfunded Ready 2 Learn programs will cost the board about $2 million. The UCDSB received $200,000 from the Ministry of Education to allow it to offer full-day kindergarten at the 11 chosen schools, but the board has had to pour additional funds in order to make the expanded kindergarten program possible,

The board has planned for 325 full-time equivalent educational assistants (EAs), down from about 380 last year. That was due to a $2.6-million reduction in the funding the board receives for those positions, MacPherson said. But the board has flexibility to hire more EAs, and the board will now have 25 early childhood educators (ECEs) on staff to support the early-learning programs. David Thomas, director of education, referenced the board’s CREW (Communication, Equitable Distribution of Re-

sources, Educational Programs and Wellness) Strategic Plan as ambitious, and said it will take UCDSB students to even higher results. “Our overarching goal is to achieve a 90 per cent graduation rate, and some of our high schools are already there,� he stated in a press release. Board chair Greg Pietersma says the balanced budget supports the board’s CREW strategic plan. “Our strategic plan is moving our board from an industrial-aged education system to a knowledge-driven, meta thinking, digitally organized board of education that is oriented and disposed to having our students ready for the future, ready for jobs and careers that haven’t been created yet,� he stated. The UCDSB is the largest school board in the eastern half of eastern Ontario and 47 per cent of the total student population in the area attends schools in the public board. This past school term, the board created five new Grade-7-to-12 schools. The board is also building two new high schools, one in Vankleek and the other in Kemptville. Perth and District Collegiate Institute is the next high school on the list to be rebuilt. MacPherson said the board hopes to receive notice of funding from the Ministry

Orange you glad you can recycle? Province launches special waste removal program BLAIR EDWARDS blair.edwards@metroland.com

Throwing out hazardous waste just became a whole lot easier, according to Stewardship Ontario. The non-profit agency has added 13 new material categories and thousands of new products to its list regulated by the province. Stewardship Ontario is a non-profit agency responsible for overseeing the province’s recycling and hazardous waste removal programs. The organization was created by the Waste Diversion Act in 2002 by provincial legislation. Starting this month, the organization rolled out Orange Drop across the province, a program designed to make it easier for residents to remove their hazardous waste. The list of materials now accepted includes batteries, pharmaceuticals, syringes and aerosol containers. Orange Drop follows the municipal hazardous or special waste program, introduced in 2008, said Sean Magee, Stewardship Ontario’s promotion and education co-ordinator. The special waste program accepted nine waste material categories including

paint and solvents. The program is expected to divert 27 million kilograms of trash from Ontario’s landfills – 10 million more kilograms than last year. “The more we can divert away from landfills the longer their lifespan will be,” said Magee. “The main goal is to protect the environment.” Manufacturers of products that end up as hazardous waste pay for its transport and removal, said Magee. “That really can be a great brand recognition for them,” Magee said.

Textile Museum showcases 20 years of quilting PATRICIA LONERGAN patricia.lonergan@metroland.com

MISSISSIPPI MILLS – The Mississippi Valley Textile Museum is awash in colour as a mosaic of quilts in every size, shape and style adorn a large room on the first floor. The museum’s newest exhibit, which runs until Sept. 5, is both a celebration and tribute to the Almonte Crazy Quilters, plus it marks a milestone for the museum. Started by six people who “just got together,� the Crazy Quilters is celebrating its 20th anniversary, said past-president Margaret Spriggs. The group now boasts 19 members and meets once a month to work on various projects. Meanwhile, the museum is commemorating its 25th anniversary. With an eye on traditional and contemporary textile exhibits, curator Michael Rikley-Lancaster indicated it’s important to showcase and continue the awareness of quilting and its heritage. “It’s interesting to see the mix,� he said of the various quilts on display, noting some are hand-stitched while others have been completed by a machine. “Hand-stitching is a dying art,� Rikley-Lancaster continued, explaining it requires a certain amount of precision and a great deal of time. “The new thing is quilting by machine,� said Spriggs. “Some of us do that.� She said it’s faster and can work well in conjunction with hand-stitching. A member of Crazy Quilters for eight years, Spriggs said quilting has to be a passion for those who pick up the scissors and needle because it’s a huge time commit-

Patricia Lonergan / Canadian Gazette

In celebration of the Crazy Quilters’ 20th anniversary, the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum is hosting a special exhibit until Sept. 5. ment. In her case, she said she just decided to give it a try one day. Spriggs picked up some material and crafted a quilt. “My first quilt was laughable,� she said. After a two year wait to get into the Almonte Crazy Quilters – the group had a full roster back then – she finally became a member and perfected the art of quilting. “My big thing is designing,� Spriggs said, noting she not only cuts out fabric, but also sometimes paints it. One of her pieces on display looks through a vine covered archway. The black background has been brushed

with bleach to help complete the image. While Spriggs tests the boundaries of quilting, the art itself seems to be dying a slow death. She said many quilting groups are in trouble because people are no longer picking up the needle and thread. Using her own group as an example, Spriggs noted the members are older. Part of that trend could be attributed to the group’s decision to meet during the day. Rikley-Lancaster, however, agrees that quilting is a fading art. He said less and less traditional methods are being handed down to children, and schools are not teaching the basics in home economics classes like they once did. “It’s unfortunate,� he said. “Our hope is the museum will work to fill that gap.� Quilting is a great fit in some of the new movements to go green, Rikley-Lancaster indicated, noting it’s all about re-using materials to keep the family warm. Pointing to a quilt hanging on the wall, he said silk ties were used to create the colourful pattern. The quilter’s husband retired and not longer needed his ties, RikleyLancaster explained, so the quilt is not just a celebration for him, but also a great example of how material can be re-used. While the exhibit itself is one way to pique interest in quilting, programming is another way to pass down long-held traditions. Rikley-Lancaster indicated the museum is looking to grow its programming. In the meantime, the Crazy Quilters have donated an Autumn Leaves quilt the museum is raffling off to help raise funds. Tickets for the raffle will be on sale at the museum until Sept. 15.

This is what happened to me personally. After suffering for years I desperately tried everything, drugs, natural products,physiotherapy, acupuncture, magnets and nothing was of any real help. Finally I had relief in 2 weeks by taking shark cartilage that was specially processed to preserve the natural active ingredients. This is the kind we are now promoting. I realized then that there are over 50 million men and women that are battling the same illness and getting treatments that are not working well, otherwise we would not have this ongoing huge health problem. In the last 10 years we have helped tens of thousands of men and women to have less pain or no pain at all. This is a by-product of the food industry. No sharks are caught because of their bones/cartilage. Nick A. Jerch, President We have real EVIDENCE that it works. On our web site you find over 100 testimonials with full names and towns. All 100% true. Skeptics may call them. Here are some examples:  Doctor suggested knee replacement after all his options failed with drugs and cortisone shots in knee and lower back. I recommend Bell Shark Cartilage to those millions suffering needlessly like I did for 40 years with arthritis in my knees. It's a shame that I was given drugs and injections all these years when a natural medicine could have spared me the endless torture day and #1 night. Pat Laughlin, Coldwater, ON My hip is 95% pain free. Pain killing drugs mask and Bell Shark Cartilage heals. Rebecca Hite, Oroville, CAI tried another brand and pain came back. 2 weeks on Bell and pain is gone again. Gert Dupuis, Hanmer, ONCancelled knee replacement. I was in pain and limping.

Young puppeteers given chance to busk at festival MISSISSIPPI MILLS – Almonte youth are getting a sneak peak into the life of a festival puppeteer. Local puppet guru Noreen Young approached the Take Young People Seriously youth centre with an opportunity to participate in a puppet-building workshop. Young, who is gearing up for the Aug. 6 and 7 International Puppets Up! Festival in Almonte, worked with local youth, show-

ing them how to create colourful puppets out of foam on July 19. Ruth Tamas, who participated in the workshop, said it was neat to see Young show up with a roll of foam, ready to work. “She brought us templates so we can make more,” said Ruth. TYPS executive director Sophie Tamas said Young approached the youth centre about hosting a workshop and inviting the participants to participate in the festival as buskers. “(The street buskers at the festival) provide things in the festival people can enjoy, whether or not they can afford tickets,” said Sophie. Young said she hopes the kids will take advantage of the slot she has

HST, competing festival challenge Riverside Jam Country musicians set to take over August long weekend desmond.devoy@metroland.com

CARLETON PLACE – The new Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) and a competing country and western music festival in Ottawa are proving to be a challenge to the continued existence of the Riverside Jam. “The HST is going to hurt us this year. If it breaks us, that’ll be one of the reasons,” said Riverside Jam chairman Bud MacMillan. “Time will tell. But I’m not optimistic.” MacMillan explained that under the old Goods and Services Tax (GST), the festival used to absorb the cost of the GST. The festival is also facing a challenge from another country and western music festival being held at the Rideau Carleton Raceway in Ottawa on the weekend of Aug. 7 and 8. MacMillan has heard that quite a few concert regulars at the Jam will be going to Ottawa instead. Despite those concerns, ticket sales for this year’s Jam had been good but have since leveled

I remember it as being a great music town,” said Wright during a telephone interview last week from her home in Nashville, Tennessee. “(It’s) beautiful to see people going out to see live music.” This year marks Wright’s 30th anniversary of being on the road, and while she is a country singer first and foremost, her musical abilities extend beyond that label. “I was raised as much on Merle Haggard as I was on Otis Redding,” said Wright. “I’m a real contemporary artist (but) I am a country artist as well. I’ve been able to appeal to a broad base.” Wright released a Christmas album called A Wright Christmas in 2008. While fans shouldn’t expect any “Christmas in July,” songs at her concert, other songs will definitely be on her play list. “There are two songs that, for sure, have to be in,” she said, pointing to her hits Take It Like

out. “It’s a little slow right now, but it was going well (earlier). But it’s peaks and valleys,” MacMillan said. He added he expects sales to pick up once the date of the event draws closer because campers will have a chance to check the long term weather forecast for the weekend of July 30 to Aug. 1. There will be a few changes at this year’s Jam. The beer garden tent will be smaller this year, but the size of the beer garden will grow to accommodate people who wish to socialize standing up. Access to the concert site has also been modified. Instead of accessing the concert area from Lake Avenue West, fans will have to head into the area from down in the park itself, to make the venue more secure. “We’ve got some pretty creative young people in town,” said MacMillan of youngsters who were able to sneak into concerts during previous years. This year’s concert line-up focuses greatly on Canadian and Ottawa Valley country talent. The headliners for the weekend finish off each day from 9:30 to 11 p.m. Deric Ruttan performs on Friday, Michelle Wright on Saturday and George Canyon on Sunday. Other acts include wellknown local performers such as Ottawa Valley favourites The Bowes Brothers, from Carleton Place (6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Saturday) and Ambush (8:15 to 9:15 p.m. on Friday). Up-and-coming musicians on tap for the weekend includes home-grown Carleton Place talent like the Triple K Klickers (1:30 to 2 p.m. on Saturday) and singer Brea Lawrenson (4 to 5 p.m. on Saturday.) While there is pride in Canadian and Ottawa Valley country music talent, economic realities have also played a hand in keeping things local. “We have to tailor it to what we can afford,” MacMillan said. MacMillan thanked the local sponsors who have helped out the festival since the beginning.

Photo entries sought for LAWS 2011 Charity Pet calendar The Lanark Animal Welfare Society is now seeking photo entries for their 2011 Charity Pet calendar. Pet owners all have one (or many) – that cute photo of your dog gazing at you adoringly as only man’s best friend can, or perhaps the cat goofing around with their favourite toy. Those photos that give you a warm fuzzy feeling when you look at them, or make you laugh so hard you shed a tear. Why not share them with LAWS and help a good cause at the same time? Send your photos in along with your choice of calendar date as slots always fill up quickly. Entry deadline is Sept. 1 and prices this year follow that of previous years – $20 for the first photo and $10 for each additional photo entered. Photos may be sent electronically for the 2011 edition and are being looked after by Cathy Hasler. Email your photos to either cathy.hasler@rbc.com or shelter@lanarkanimals.ca attention to Cathy Hasler. As a non-profit organization with no funding, aside from donations and fundraising activities, LAWS relies on the public to support the cause. Dollars donated to LAWS go immediately to the animals in LAWS care. LAWS has been a member of the Ontario SPCA for most of its existence, first as a branch and later as an affiliate. LAWS remains the only affiliate with the OSPCA not to use the word humane or SPCA in its public identity. This makes finding LAWS difficult for people looking for their local ‘humane society’ or try-

ing to distinguish LAWS from a rescue or pound. LAWS is affiliated with the Ontario SPCA and we receive no funding from either the government or the OSPCA. Our affiliation with the OSPCA gives LAWS and only LAWS (in Lanark County) the mandate to enforce both federal and provincial laws that deal with animal welfare. We are also the only enforcement agency in Ontario that receives no funding to enforce those laws. We are part of a community of over 50 members (through our affiliation) that speak in one voice for the welfare of the animals. Some of the many services we provide include around the clock cruelty investigations, bringing perpetrators of cruelty to court, sheltering and adoptions, wildlife rescue, government and industry advocacy, humane education, reducing pet overpopulation through the spay and neuter programs, emergency rescue and treatment, and reuniting lost pets with their owners. Upcoming fundraising events for LAWS include fundraising garage sales set for 9 a.m. to 12 noon, July 24 and Aug. 21. You are sure to walk away with some treasures you have been looking for, and a few you weren’t. All garage sales are at LAWS’ shelter, located on Glenview Road, off Highway 43 about two kilometres west of Smiths Falls. For information about LAWS, to volunteer or make a donation, please visit www.lanarkanimals.ca, email shelter@lanarkanimals.ca, or call 613-283-9308. Written by the LAWS board of directors.

Two weeks ago, in Beckwith Township, the Martin family had surprise visitors in their backyard area. Were these grouse or partridge? Taking pictures, Olivia Martin asked her father if he could identify the birds. They looked online and found that the birds were 10-12 Chukars, enjoying their backyard. Even their dog had a good look at them, as seen in the picture accompanying this column. Chukars are an Old World species, introduced in North America during the 1930s from the Middle East. Slightly larger than Gray Partridge, but slightly smaller than Ruffed Grouse, they were introduced for sport hunting purposes.

Hats off to our 2010 GRADS!

Gray-brown birds, flanks boldly barred black and white, their red bills and legs are quite conspicuous. They feed in coveys of five to 20 birds. For a different reason, Joyce and Mike Jaques, Carleton Place, are almost celebrating for birds seen and heard on their property. Number 98 is an Ovenbird, seen July 11. Well done, and within the town. Last week a lady at Curves, Almonte, told me she was very pleased to finally see a Northern Flicker. She had heard of them, and heard them calling, but had not seen one. Another friend at my CHIP grads meeting reported that they have Northern Cardinals at her home in Carleton Place. The young male of this year is gradually acquiring his adult

plumage. New friends from Carleton Place have a family of Eastern Phoebes as well as a family of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds. In Beckwith Township, south of Carleton Place, Maria Nordstrum has families of Rosebreasted Grosbeaks, House Finch’s, and American Goldfinch’s. Lots of colour there. Several Mourning Doves, Redwinged Blackbirds, and Common Grackles are busy on her property, with a few Blue Jays, American Robins, and Blackcapped Chickadees to add to the mix. Three weeks ago, Joel Byrne, at his Dalhousie property, had Whip-poor-wills calling. Please call Lynda at: 613-2565013; or email: bennett@magma. ca with bird reports.

YARD OF THE WEEK Kevin’s the gardener and Debbie’s the assistant weeder in the Bradley garden at 313 Moffatt St. at the corner of Townline Road. Kevin chuckles as he says his gardening philosophy is to put the plants in the ground where they either thrive or die. There must be more to it than that, judging by the beautiful season-long display of colour that greets passersby. If you would like to nominate a front garden for Carleton Place in Bloom’s Yard of the Week feature, please leave a message at 613-253-0019.

them several times in securing loans to expand his business. “They’ve been a significant contributor to our success,” said Morley. The corporation also helped provide Morley’s companies with employee training incentives. Sequence Controls Inc., began operations in the mid 1980s, with Powerbase Energy Systems Inc., setting up shop in 1997. The latter develops green energy through small hydro and bio gas projects. “(We were) a little bit ahead of the eco-curve,” said Morley. The company started out making controls for small hydro turbines. Its first major project began in 1998, when it helped set up a small hydro electric control system in China, with the help of the Canadian International Development Agency. “We’re getting a name for ourselves now that renewable energy is cool,” said Morley. The award will now be on display at the company’s offices on Rosamond Street.
