Girls move out of Alwood drug treatment centre PATRICIA LONERGAN

LANARK COUNTY - The Alwood Treatment Centre in Scotch Corners will become an all-boys facility once a new residential drug treatment centre opens in West Carleton next week. A 10-bed facility known as Meadow Creek, run by the Dave Smith Youth Treatment Centre, will open its doors to girls on Aug. 12 after about a one month delay. The delay, according to Dave Smith Centre executive director Glenn Barnes, was partly the result of sifting through hundreds of job applications. The centre, which runs community-based outbound services from its Bronson Avenue location in Ottawa, has also had to

retrain staff for its residential program. Meadow Creek was originally owned and operated by the Royal Ottawa Hospital, which housed its men’s residential treatment program in the West Carleton facility. Three years ago the hospital moved the program to its new Carlingwood location. The building in West Carleton was left vacant for about two years, Barnes said, and had to be refurbished before the Dave Smith Youth Treatment Centre could set up programming at the location. The Alwood Treatment Centre, meanwhile, has been amalgamated into the Dave Smith Centre and, as a corporation, will be dissolved by the end of August. See ALWOOD, page 5

LANARK COUNTY – A change in rates for the microFIT Progam, a provincial initiative designed to encourage producers to invest in solar technology, has left area representatives both surprised and disappointed. The microFIT Program was

launched last October, giving participants a chance to be eligible for a rate of 80.2 cents per kilowatt-hour. But, as of the beginning of July, that rate for the groundmounted solar PV program was dropped to a proposed 58.8 cents per kilowatt-hour. The Lanark Federation of Agriculture is disappointed.

Bridge Street Bazaar 2010

Push out the jive, bring in the love: Bill Horsman, right, leads, from left, Pat Bradley-White and Wanda Leclerc in tai chi exercises as part of the Tai Chi Society of Canada demonstrations.

Great finds, fun and food at 2010 Bridge Street Bazaar CARLETON PLACE –Bridge Street was the place to be on Saturday, July 31 if you wanted to get a really early jump on your Christmas shopping. Or to do some square dancing. Or pet a llama. Or have some Mason-made pancakes for breakfast, followed by Vietnamese food for lunch. Or to simply people-watch. Yes, the Bridge Street Bazaar, sponsored by the Carleton Place Business Improvement Area, had it all this past weekend, and all in one place at that. Bridge Street was blocked off to traf-

fic all the way from Lake Avenue north to Mill Street to accommodate the crowds, vendors and entertainers who filled the street. But people were still able to flock downtown either on foot or by the pontoon boat service offered by the BIA from Riverside Park to the foot of Bridge Street. After excitement like that, one would almost need another long holiday weekend to recover from this previous one.

Some of the animals at the petting zoo in front of the Carleton Place post office just couldn’t get enough of William Munro, 6, and the treats he was offering them.

CARLETON PLACE – A surprise budgetary item will require some extra cash over the next three years, thanks to an announcement by the Ontario Municipal Employees Retirement System. The Municipal Employer Pension Centre of Ontario has advised municipalities that they will be increasing contribution rates for employers and employees by one per cent per year for the next two years and 0.9 per cent the third year to address a projected shortfall. “For the town, that will be $40,000 the first year, $80,000 the

next year and $120,000 the next year,” said chief administrative officer Paul Knowles. Town treasurer Phil Hogan said a staff member earning $40,000 annually, for example, will have to pay $1,160 more per year in the pension fund by 2012. “Since the municipality matches the contributions of the employee, the municipality will also have to pay $1,160 into the pension fund,” said Hogan. The treasurer said the municipal pension fund claims this is a temporary measure, and the rates will be readjusted when the deficit is dealt with. “Only time will tell,” said Hogan.

THE TOWNSHIP OF LANARK HIGHLANDS NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETING OFFICIAL PLAN FIVE YEAR REVIEW/UPDATE TAKE NOTICE, that the Township of Lanark Highlands will hold Public Meetings with respect to the five year review of its Official Plan: Date: Saturday, July 24th, 2010 Date: Friday, August 27th, 2010 Time: 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon Time: 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. Location: Municipal Office, 75 George St., Lanark, Ontario The Consultants and Municipal Staff will be in attendance to provide information and review the amended draft Official Plan. Section 26(1) of the Planning Act requires that Municipal Official Plan documents be updated no less frequently than every five (5) years. The new Official Plan will update and refine the policies of the current plan to ensure conformity with provincial plans, have regard to matters of Provincial Interest and provide consistency with Provincial Policy Statements, as well as to set a course for the development of the Township over the next 20 years. The proposed revised Official Plan applies to the entire municipality and as such no key map is provided with this Notice. The revised Official Plan will be adopted by the Council of the Township of Lanark Highlands and submitted to the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing for final approval. Council will have regard to any written submissions about what revisions may be required and will give any person who attends an opportunity to be heard. Interested parties may also make written submissions directly to the Township at any time during the review process. ANY PERSON may attend the public meetings and/or make written or verbal representation either in support of, or in opposition to the proposed amendments. If a person or public body that files an appeal of a decision of the Council of the Corporation of the Township of Lanark Highlands in respect of the proposed Official Plan amendment does not make oral submissions at a public meeting or make written submissions to the Township before the proposed revised Official Plan is adopted, the Ontario Municipal Board may dismiss all or part of the appeal. TAKE NOTICE THAT if a person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting or make written submissions to the Township of Lanark Highlands before the proposed revised Official Plan is adopted, the person or public body is not entitled to appeal the decision to the Ontario Municipal Board. Further, if a person or public body does not make oral submissions at a public meeting or make written submissions to the Township of Lanark Highlands before the proposed revised Official Plan is adopted, the person or public body may not be added as a party to the hearing of an appeal before the Ontario Municipal Board unless, in the opinion of the Board, there are reasonable grounds to add the person or public body as a party. IF YOU WISH TO BE NOTIFIED of the adoption of the proposed revised Official Plan you must make a written request to the Township of Lanark Highlands, at the address below.

The CAO said there is nothing any of the municipalities can do about it but it was important to have it presented to council so the numbers are on the table. Hogan said the extra money will come from across the municipality since it is salary-related. “The additional cost for this will come from a combination of taxation and user fees,” said Hogan. In areas such as recreation, sewer and water, day care and building inspections, for example, the town charges user fees. To compensate, user fees in administration, public works, fire and bylaw where the user fees are minimal than property taxation may be where the additional costs are picked up, said Hogan.

Barracks heritage building sold despite vandalism DESMOND DEVOY

MISSISSIPPI MILLS – The old barracks heritage building has been sold, despite a break-in by vandals last month, which caused more than $40,000 in damage. The Mississippi School for the Arts will open at the site off of Highway 29 in September 2011, following major renovations to the building in the intervening months. “It’s built on the basis of the original school,” explained principal Sharon Holzscherer, who was also the principal of the old Mississippi School & Learning Centre, which closed its doors in June 2008 due to the deteriorating physical condition of the building. “It needs major renovations,” Holzscherer added, including improvements to heating, plumbing and windows. The school only rented the space from the previous owner, and was unable to afford the renovations on its own. Once opened, the school will only offer grades seven to 12. “In many ways, it is a brand new school,” Holzscherer said of the university preparatory high school. Holzscherer was called by police on the night of July 11 and told the building had been broken into and extensive damage had been done. Along with windows being broken, and several sinks ripped out of the wall, school property stored at the site was also damaged.

The vandals broke telescopes, glass beakers, test tubes and petri dishes that were stored for future science classes. A stove and fridge were also destroyed, and the door ripped off of an oven. “There was just glass everywhere. It was a god awful mess,” said Holzscherer. “I really was furious that people would do this wanton destruction.” After the police had conducted their investigation, Holzscherer and some associates began the clean-up operation. The piles of glass in the hallways were so bad that they had to use snow shovels to start clearing it away. The vandals did overlook one treasure trove that, had it been destroyed too, could have been a major setback for the school – the 5,000-plus books the school had in storage, not to mention the other Desmond Devoy / Canadian Gazette books being stored on site in the annex The old barracks heritage building was formerly a bomb shelter for federal employees by The Book Gallery. build in 1962.

Larger treatment centre slated to open in 2014 The seven girls currently at the Scotch Corners facility will move to Meadow Creek on Aug. 12 for the day. They’ll have to return to the Alwood Treatment Centre to sleep since there won’t be any overnight staff members available at the new building. However, on Aug. 16 they’ll make a final move to West Carleton when a full complement of staff will be on hand. By the time the new facility opens, the number of residential beds available will jump from 14 to 26. While the extra beds are a boon for the region, Barnes indicated the centre is fighting a losing battle. He said about 350 to 500 adolescents and youth between 13 and 21 years old in Ottawa and area need addiction treatment at a residential facility. Even with plans to open a new 30 bed facility in Carp in 2014, the Dave Smith Centre will only be able to help about 120 youths a year, but it’s “16 beds more than we have now,” Barnes said. Funding is one of the main obstacles to opening new beds, he continued, explaining the Ministry of Health provides operating dollars but doesn’t put capital money on the table. That means the Dave Smith Centre has to raise funds to build or refurbish facilities. Barnes said it will cost about $6.5 million to build the 30 bed facility scheduled to open in 2014.

ALWOOD, from front page With boys at the 14-bed Alwood facility and girls housed in Meadow Creek, the number of females seeking treatment is expected to increase. Barnes said females only account for only one-third or one-quarter of clients in most co-ed residential facilities. “It does not represent the gender split in the population,” he said, noting that the number of females in treatment increases to a 50/50 split if there is segregation. Focus groups show that females won’t enter the residential treatment facility in the first place if it is co-ed. Barnes said 16-year-old girls say they have enough on their plate without having to deal with 17-year-old boys “prancing in front of them.” For girls who might have experienced psychological or physical abuse in their past, being exposed to that can be traumatizing. “If we take the barrier away, the usage goes up,” Barnes said of segregation. A couple of girls at the Alwood Treatment Centre talked about quitting the program, Barnes indicated, but were asked to be patient and take a look at the new building. After touring the new facility, he said there were whoops, cries and giggles from the girls, who were convinced to stick it out.

Cross-Canada cycling trio due home in Almonte today DESMOND DEVOY

MISSISSIPPI MILLS – A trio of cyclists who are raising funds for the Almonte General Hospital by cycling across Canada, will be reaching a significant milestone – their hometown of Almonte – today (Aug. 5). The group, made up of Stephen Tosh, and father-daughter team Scott and Kelsey Smithson, made it to Sault Ste. Marie by July 30 when the CanadianGazette caught up with them on the phone as they enjoyed a rare down day. “You got to keep going. You can’t stop. If you stop, you come to a complete stop,” said Tosh. “It’s been slow going, but we’re getting there.” The three cyclists, all members of the Almonte Bicycle Club, left the west coast on June 30, and hope to make it to the Atlantic Ocean sometime in September. “We passed the half-way (point). We’re looking at it (the journey) as thirds,” said Tosh.

“We see Almonte as two-thirds (of the journey).” Tosh noted that, once they arrive home, they will visit family, catch up on their laundry, and check up on their equipment. They have met fellow travellers along the road who are as varied as the terrain they covered. They met two young women from The Netherlands – a country known for cycling – who were pedalling across Canada, as well as a Japanese man who was pushing a shopping cart, decked out in Japanese flags, who was walking from Victoria, B.C., to New York City. “We stopped and took pictures of each other,” recalled Tosh. There was also a six-degreesof-separation moment along the way as well, after they finished talking to a man making his way across the country from his home in Antigonish, N.S. Further down the road, “a guy we knew from Almonte met up with him later.” Another time, when they were stopped for lunch, a motorcy-

clist approached them and, noticing Scott and Kelsey’s club uniforms, inquired if they were from Almonte. After being told that they were, they found out that he was from Balderson. The group has been averaging about 75 kilometres per day. They usually stay in a tent in campgrounds, but one of their most recent stays, at the Velorution bicycle store in Sault Ste. Marie, proved to be quite memorable. “If you’re cycling across Canada, you can stay here,” said Tosh, with the owner allowing cross-country cyclists to avail of the washroom and electrical facilities overnight. There had been 14 people staying there a few nights previous. “We’re still holding up,” said Tosh. “We’ve had a few flats but that’s it.” Back home in Almonte, Stephen’s wife Bonnie will be going door-to-door, canvassing for pledges to support the tour, which is funded solely by the Tosh and Smithson families.

Always Safe, Always Green, Always Works. Julia’s StoryMy Shaklee journey began in January 2008 when I started researching chemicals in household cleaners and was horrified with what I discovered; hundreds of untested chemicals in the products we use daily with nothing on the label informing us of what we are using. After hearing about a safe alternative with the Shaklee Get Clean line of household cleaners, I replaced everything from laundry to all purpose cleaners with Get Clean Starter Kit and was so impressed with how well all the products worked that I had to jump on board and offer them to other concerned parents, just like me. Shortly thereafter, I started using Shaklee’s basic nutrition program and that was life changing for me. My energy levels improved, my feelings of stress subsided, and I felt generally happier in myself. So much so, I regained my capacity to hope and dream again, and that to me was simply amazing. Needless to say, that clinched the deal for me. Shaklee has been a pioneer in the health and wellness industry and has been creating healthier lives for over 50 years. Dr Shaklee came out with one of the first multivitamins in 1915 and he developed one of the first natural, non-toxic and biodegradable cleaners in 1960 when “green” was just a colour! All Shaklee products are naturally safe and proven effective, and reflect Dr Shaklee’s philosophy of always being in harmony with nature.

Shaklee is the #1 Natural Nutrition Company in the US and is the first company in the world to be certified Climate Neutral, leaving no carbon footprint on the earth. That is integrity! Basic H2® Organic Super Cleaning Concentrate is Shaklee’s signature cleaning product. It is a highly concentrated, super-safe and really powerful cleaner that removes dirt, grease, and grime from any washable surface. We challenge you to see for yourself and give it a try. Contact me for a free sample of Basic H2® while quantities last. The Get Clean Starter Kit is a great way to jumpstart your own Shaklee story. And when you purchase the Get Clean Starter Kit you also make a positive impact on the planet. With the purchase of a Get Clean Starter Kit you: • Keep 108 pounds of packaging waste from landfills. • Eliminate 248 pounds of greenhouse gases. • Which is the equivalent of planting 10 trees. All our cleaning products are very safe and compatible with septic systems! In addition to having an incredible line of Household Cleaners, Skin care and Natural Nutrition, Shaklee also offers the opportunity to own and operate your own Home Based Business.

MICROFIT, from front page The federation released a statement, expressing the organization’s extreme disappointment with the change. “Out of the blue…the Ontario Power Authority announced changes to the program tariff by reducing the level of compensation by 27 per cent,” stated LFA president Andrea McCoy-Naperstkow. “Why? Because the OPA believes the new price category is fair, reasonable and more accurately reflecting the costs associated with ground-mounted projects and maintains the long-term stability of the program.”

McCoy-Naperstkow said the original idea of the microFIT Program was to pay potential producers enough to make investing in solar technology financially worthwhile. “We are very concerned for the future of many farmers who have taken out loans; re-mortgaged their farm properties to support this initiative,” she said. “The recent changes to the program are not what farmers signed up for.” Recently, the federation had teamed up with the Arnprior Federation of Agriculture and Beckwith Township, hosting

Trading eco fees for shell games

Hang on to warm feelings KATIE MULLIGAN Taking A Mulligan


s the province moves to remedy the dismal July 1 launch of Stewardship Ontario’s new eco fees, it’s time to talk about accountability and transparency. Accountability at source and transparency at the end. The Association of Municipalities of Ontario stated its belief that waste management costs related to hazardous waste products should continue to be the responsibility of those who create and distribute the products. AMO president Peter Hume says it’s the only way to encourage these businesses to produce less waste, create less toxic products and recycle more. Unless, of course, those same businesses just wrap their increased costs into the sticker price on the shelf. Then who wins? The July 1 launch of eco fees was a communications disaster. No doubt of that. But we must have faith in our friends and neighbours. As with any critical social change – and environmentalism is the ultimate social shift – success will lie in the simple understanding of a very basic concept: do the right thing. Do what is right for today, but more so what is right for tomorrow. There’s a segment of society that will never change. But there is another that truly wants to change and make informed choices. So as much as business and industry must be encouraged to produce less waste, consumers must be encouraged to consider the products they use. What happened to the good old days when water and vinegar would wash your windows just fine? When did we as a society decide that applying a toxic chemical to melt away dirt was favoured over some firmly-applied elbow grease? The ultimate injustice in this whole environmental maelstrom would be for Ontarians to allow waste diversion costs to be hidden in retail prices or municipal tax bills. Doing so may be politically palatable, but it’s a shell game in a fool’s paradise. An eco fee is a good thing. Consumers must know the true price of environmental choices they make. That, alone, will change buying habits. And changing buying habits will change business. is.. Do you have something to say about this, or anything else that has appeared the Canadian Gazette?

Ups and downs at this year’s Riverside Jam Dear Editor, It was another successful year for the Jam with great entertainment. Friday night Ambush put on their high energy show, they definitely know how to get the crowd going. Saturday’s highlight was Michelle Wright. She is an amazing artist. I met her after the show and she is such a lovely lady to talk to. Sunday night the crowd was wild for George Canyon. He put on a great show and came back with three encores. The Valley Talent search that showcased seven young local acts under 18 was great. Seventeen-year-old Brad Scott from Pakenham is an amazing guitar player with a future in Nashville. There were a few glitches in the week-

end. There was no security to police the front of the stage Friday or Saturday night and no one in the front rows could see the entertainers for people standing in front of the stage. They finally did something about it Sunday night, but it was too little too late as far as the front rows were concerned. Also missing this year was the tent for the seniors to have shade. There isn’t much natural shade in that field. The stage shows were great, but the level of security seemed to suffer. If there’s a Jam next year I hope things will be back up to standard or the Jam will suffer. Especially with Ottawa hosting the Capital Hoedown a week later. Sherry White, Lanark

Oh no. Did you feel that? It was…cold. I almost forgot what that felt like, other than the fact our office seems to somehow be in another season altogether. I had mixed feelings as that cool, refreshing wind blew through the windows of our house last week. While yes, it was a treat to have a cool night to sleep through and have fresh air run through the house, it also made me sad. Night time temperatures dropping below 20 makes me think of fall and fall makes me think of the countdown to winter and winter…well, I don’t want to talk about winter. It’s bad enough the days are getting shorter. I am getting ahead of myself. It’s only the first week of August. That fact alone is shocking, but when you’re working full time, August is not really the halfway point of summer anymore. September often boasts beautiful days. So what am I so worried about? A break from the humid days is something to be grateful for. But still. As sluggish as those days made me feel, it was a pain I thoroughly enjoyed. In February, we pine for the chance to feel overheated. Well, almost. The kind of overheating that can be cured with a visit to the beach or to a restaurant patio. Not the kind of overheating you feel when you’re wearing too many layers, walk into a store or get on a bus and almost pass out from the temperature change. Perhaps it’s the point in the summer that would be a good time to stop and make sure I am doing everything I wanted to do this summer. Camping, cottaging, spending time in the parks and so on. So far, I think I am doing pretty well. Maybe to further the outdoor experience, I can convince the bosses here at the Canadian Gazette to move our computers outside. Fresh air helps productivity, right?

On Saturday, Aug. 7, the popular Naismith 3-on-3 Basketball Festival will return to Almonte for its 13th year. According to organizers, from 1992 to 2009, almost 100 teams have annually participated in the outdoor event, rain or shine, making it the largest 3-on-3 tournament in Eastern Ontario.

While the games will go forward regardless of rain, some games may be rescheduled to an indoor venue or pushed to Sunday in the case of severe weather. The Dr. James Naismith Foundation organizes the event each year and ensures the roads used for the festival are closed to vehicular traffic to ensure safety of participants, volunteers and spectators.

Rona Helps with Cancer Care in Carleton Place The Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital Foundation is thrilled to announce the Rona Razorthon was a success and has raised $8950 for the Hospital. The event was held on Saturday July 24 and during the Razorthon, participants shaved either their head or legs in support of the hospital. One participant also cut her hair and then donated the braid to Locks of Love. The event participants included Rona employees, an employee’s wife, the contractors/ owners of In Sink and Councillor Louis Antonakos. “We are so pleased that we were able to do this on behalf of the Hospital” stated Karin Bissonette, Rona employee and one of the event organizers. “We are thrilled with the results and event worked out even better than I could have ever anticipated.” In the last year, three Rona employees were diagnosed with cancer and to show their support, Rona decided to organize the Rona Razorthon. The funds raised from the event will be used to help purchase new equipment for the Hospital’s colonoscopy program. “Since a colonoscopy is still one of the most effective ways of detecting colorectal cancer, we believe further investment in our colonoscopy program will improve our ability to identify people at risk of colorectal cancer in our community” stated Esther Houle, CNO/Outpatient Manager of CPDMH. “Early detection of the disease would result in timely access to treatment, and an increase in cancer survival rates in our area.” “We are very grateful for the support we received from RONA and the participants of the Razorthon,” stated Chantelle Troy, Manager/Community Relations Officer of CPDMH Foundation. “We appreciate that they shaved their hair for us and I would like to thank everyone who contributed to the success of the event.” Rona and the CPDMH Foundation would also like to thank Jody Clarke from Capelli’s Hair Studio for volunteering her time and agreeing to shave the participants. Rona will continue with fundraising for CPDMH throughout the year and will be selling bracelets in support of cancer care at the store. The bracelets are available at any cashier and can be purchased for $2.00

performance acting workshop, using The Bard’s text as an actor’s manual, from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Old Town Hall, for kids 13 and up. “This is the first time we’ve taken the tour to northern Ontario,” said the play’s director, Eleanor Crowder of the True North Tour. “We wanted to go with an absolute classic and accessible Shakespeare.” While Romeo and Juliet certainly ranks as one of Shakespeare’s most well known pieces, Crowder noted it is surprisingly accessible, even to younger audiences. The Almonte production has been slimmed down to an hour-and-a-half from the full production that recently played the National Arts Centre’s Fourth Stage.

In fact, Mississippi Mills will be one of the first stops on a tour of northern Ontario for the Salamander Theatre for Young People’s Shakespeare Company’s production of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, as a preview venue before they hit places like Dryden and Kenora.

so that the blood spilled on the stage is not real. “We start the fight training really early,” said Crowder. “You start the fight scenes really carefully.” From the performances she has already seen, the actors who take part in the famous fight scene between Tybalt and Mercutio really have their moves down. “They are really convincing,” she states of the moves choreographed by Chris McLeod. “Even though I’ve seen it hundreds of times, I still gasp (at the swordplay.)” She even still goes so far as to check up on the actors backstage after the scene to make sure that the ‘wounds’ are not real. While participants of the workshops might not be handling any swords, they may be enough to get area teens hooked on the acting bug.

The Night is Young on Aug. 13 DESMOND DEVOY

MISSISSIPPI MILLS – If the Arden Trio have their way, Lanark County may soon become a must-hear destination for classical and chamber music fans. That is because the trio hope to make the upcoming The Night is Young, a fundraising evening for the Young Awards Foundation, an annual event. “People have to drive to Ottawa or Toronto or Montreal to hear this type of music,” said clarinet player Tony Stuart, one of the key organizers behind the event on Aug. 13. Stuart, who is also the music director at Notre Dame Catholic High School in Carleton Place, is adamant there is an appetite for professional classical and chamber music in Lanark County. “The last time we played here (at the church) in March, it was packed,” he said of the fundraiser for the Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital. “Around here, there hasn’t been much (classical music). It would be great if there was.” The Young Awards grant bursaries to young people who wish to pursue further music studies, and also help to bring artists into area classrooms. The evening will be a fundraiser for the Young Awards Foundation. The event kicks off with a performance by the trio from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the auditorium of the Old Town Hall in Almonte. Doors will be open at 6:30 p.m. The concert will feature the music of Mozart, Mendelssohn and Beethoven, as well as more contemporary composers such as John Williams, who wrote the score for the Star Wars movies. “We want to give the audience variety,” said Stuart. “There will be something for everybody.” After the concert, participants are invited onto Mill Street, which will be closed off to traffic, where the entertainment will continue with busking performances by young people, from 8:30 to 10:30 p.m. Many downtown shops, restaurants and galleries will be open late that to accommodate the evening celebrations. Tickets are available in Almonte at Appleton Gift & Basket, 65 Mill St., Mill Street Books, 52 Mill St. and Mississippi Mills Musicworks, 453 Ottawa St. Tickets are also available at SRC Music, 124 Moore Street. Tickets are $20. For more information, go to For more on this story, please visit

Country music icon Carroll Baker shows why she is a legend.

Photos by Joyce Menyasz

Headliner George Canyon did not disappoint fans at the Riverside Jam on the weekend, keeping toes a-tappin’ throughout his show.

Jammin’ by the riverside JOYCE MENYASZ Canadian Gazette

George Canyon no longer thinks that Carleton Place looks like the inside of a cow. In a backstage interview while Stonewall Jackson performed, Canyon said he was happy to be back in Carleton Place to close the Riverside Jam festival on Sunday night. “I didn’t get to see much the last time I was here. When we played, I looked out over the crowd and thought Carleton Place was as dark as the inside of a cow,” he said, laughing. “And I’ve seen the inside of a cow. I didn’t know there was a river over there until we pulled up today.” Canyon has won the Canadian Country Music Association’s Fan’s Choice Award six years in a row. The Nova Scotia-born cowboy and his band sing about family (“I Believe in Angels”), about life (“I Want You to Live”), and sometimes about a moral issue (“If I was Jesus”). At one point during the show, he called for child volunteers, bringing almost every child at the Jam to the stage. Saying, “It looks like Sesame Street blew up on here,” he led a rousing version of The Good Old Hockey Game, with the children singing the chorus. The 7th-annual Riverside Jam on the Mississippi proved to be a music-lovers’ paradise, complete with perfect weather, happy fans and great talent. This year’s Jam was packed with the most talented of local musicians and some of Canada’s biggest names in country music. Silver Creek, an Ottawa-based band founded in 2006, was the first act to take the stage. Already local favourites, Silver Creek

rocked the crowd country style, making way for Ambush to take the stage with their highenergy, sing-along show. Deric Ruttan closed the show on Friday night. Ruttan grew up in Bracebridge, Ont. and is a prolific songwriter whose music has been recorded by a long list of talent. From his performance, it is easy to see how he will stay on the scene for the foreseeable future. Ruttan said he knew his reality was changing when he was invited to perform at the Grand Ol’ Opry in July 2003. “I was introduced by Little Jimmy Dickens before I took the stage. That was crazy. I should have been introducing him.” Ruttan is staying busy while touring Canada. His latest album Sunshine is available now. Saturday’s show started at 1 p.m. with the Riverside Allstar Band. The Triple K Clickers followed with some amazing, fastfooted dancing. Neville Wells followed, then Johnny Spinks. Brea Lawrenson, with Keith Glass of Prairie Oyster, took the crowd into the dinner break. The Carleton Place-based Bowes Brothers took control of the Saturday evening show with their folksy, down-home sound. Their perfect harmonies and upbeat performances with huge doses of feel-good music are only making their fan base grow. When asked what’s happened since their last performance at RSJ 2009, John Bowes said, “We played at the Calgary Stampede and that was just awesome.” Bowes is quick to add, “of course, nothing beats our hometown fans.” Carroll Baker performed next. Baker’s legendary career began in 1969 and includes three Juno Vocalist of the Year awards as well as many Canadian Country Music As-

sociation awards. The video montage of her legendary career was jaw-dropping, and her performance completely enthralled the crowd with a trip down memory lane. Michelle Wright closed the Jam on Saturday. Wright is an icon in country music with instant-classic songs like Take it Like a Man and Sixteen, an anthem about adoption that touches every heart. Ever the gracious celebrity, Michelle spent so much time after the show signing autographs that it seemed The legendary Stonewall Jackson she liked her fans even more than they like closes out this year’s Jam. her music. Her last album was released in 2006, but new material is on its way. “I’ve got an acoustic album being released in mid-October.” Wright said. “I’ve been working on a couple of new songs, but touring is keeping us busy. I’ll start working on the new album at the beginning of next year.” Sunday afternoon started with Corkery Road. Brett Baker, Rob Dillon, Gary Fairburn and Darlene Thibault kept the crowd entertained until dinnertime. After supper, Printers Alley set the bar high with an energetic performance. As the sun set, the stage was made ready for the legendary Stonewall Jackson. Jackson’s career has touched the lives of thousands of fans. He didn’t disappoint as he sang the old songs that made him famous during the golden era of country. George Canyon closed the Jam with an amazing show. It’s no wonder he’s fan’s choice. Canyon’s latest album, What I Do, is now available. The 2010 version of Riverside Jam was one of the best yet, and the volunteers and orga- Volunteer Jeff Julian scans the nizers should be proud of a job well done. crowd while enjoying the show.

Community Make your old family photos part of history during Photo Week

August 05 2010 Canadian Gazette



CARLETON PLACE – Your old family photos may soon find new life making history as part of the Victoria School Museum’s historic photograph collection. “We thought it would be a good way for people to add to our collection. It’s the first time we’ve ever done it,” said Alison Rogers, operations director of the museum at 267 Edmund St. in Carleton Place, of the first-ever Photo Week. “It’s so that they (potential donators) don’t feel that they have to give it (the photos) up. We just take it (the photo) and scan it,” after which the original photo is returned. “In return for them bringing it in, we have a few (historic) prints,” for them to choose from, as a gift, including ones of

the old Central School, the Old Fire Hall and Findley’s Foundry. “People don’t often realize that they have those photos lying around,” Rogers added. “They don’t realize that they can bring it in to the museum and retain a copy of it.” Already, before Photo Week even began, the influx of photos has been very encouraging. “We’ve had tons of donations so far this summer,” said Rogers. “We’ve been working on getting them into our database this summer.” So far this summer, about 20 photographs have been donated to the 1,700 photos that are already in the museum’s stock. “I’m going through this (the photo See PHOTOS, page 19

PHOTOS, from page 18 files) this summer and I’m reorganizing our filing system,” said Rogers. One of the photographs collected earlier this summer was near and dear to this newspaper’s heart. “We actually had one early on this summer of Nichol’s Theatre,” on Bridge Street, which is now home to the Canadian-Gazette’s office in Carleton Place. “It’s a really cool picture. We didn’t have a picture of it before.” Other photos collected include images of children sliding off of the rails in front of the Scotiabank building. The museum is seeking old photos taken in the Beckwith Township and Carleton Place areas, par-

tially because the museum is run by the Carleton Place and Beckwith Historical Society. The other reason is that, “a lot of the early settlements started out in Beckwith before (they started) here in Carleton Place.” Some old photographs really do show their age with the passage of time, having been passed through so many hands. But donators need not worry that their ripped, faded, soiled or singed photos will not make the cut. The museum employs the services of Lux Photo-

graphic Services Inc. to bring these time-worn pictures back to life. “They can bring out such detail in the photos, stuff we didn’t know that was there,” said Rogers. Pictures can be of businesses, family homes, class photos or special events. The museum is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday to Friday, and from 1 to 4 p.m. on Sundays. For more information, please call the Museum at 613-253-7013.

ships or retraining will now be available at one location. In Carleton Place, a full range of employment services will be provided by the Canadian Career Academy Employment Resource Centre (92 Bridge St.). OnTrac’s Carleton Place office will close. Previously, there were two centres in town that offered different types of employment services: Canadian Career Academy and OnTrac. Now, all the services previously offered by both those centres have been consolidated into a one-stop shop run by Canadian Career Academy. OnTrac will continue to offer services as the designated provider in Smiths Falls, while Algonquin College Employment Services will offer services in Perth. Michelle Toop, OnTrac co-ordinator, said the changes will make it easier for people to access these services. “It’s going to eliminate a lot of confusion for clients,” she said. Previously, each centre specialized in a variety of programs targeting different age groups that were run by both the provincial and federal governments. The services offered by centres in each municipality sometimes overlapped, which added to the confusion, Toop said. Now, all programs are run by the provincial government. “We’re really looking forward to it,” Toop said.

The new format should also help streamline each employment centre’s ability to refer clients to specialized services, including apprenticeship programs, Probert said. He added that the results of restructuring employment services will be more dramatic in cities, where many programs were offered by a large number of different providers. Rural employment services were already quite consolidated, Probert said. “I think what we’ve been doing here has served as a bit of a model,” he said. The changes will also allow each employment services centre to add approximately one staff member to their rosters.

Thanks For The Party!

What a awesome party! A super way to launch my 6th decade. Thanks to my “Kids” Lorraine, Scott & Pamela and their spouses Scott, Brenda & Grant and my Grandgirls Julia & Madeline.

BOLGER, Howard In loving memory of a dear grandfather, who passed away August 6, 2009. You will always be in our hearts, Grandpa. Love, Mya and Kira THOM In loving memory of Aunt Margaret, who passed away August 6, 2004. Deeply missed. Marjorie, John, Karen, Amy and Joey MUNRO In loving memory of our dear parents, Effie, who passed away May 2, 1997; Clifford, August 11, 1994; sister Laura, January 4, 1993; sister Ellen, May 14, 1992; and brother-in-law Willard, February 5, 2005. In a quiet country graveyard Lie the ones we love so dearly. Loved and missed by daughters, sons, brothers and sisters NEWTON, Edmund In loving memory of our dear father, Edmund Newton, who was killed in the Heron Bridge Disaster, “August 10, 1966.” Those we love don’t go away They walk beside us every day Unseen, unheard, but always near Still loved, still missed and very dear Although we smile and make no fuss No one misses him more than us And when old times we often recall That’s when we miss him most of all! We all miss you, the family and grandchildren HORTON In memory of our dad, Dan Horton, who passed away Aug. 3, 2000. If roses grow in Heaven, Lord, pick a bunch for us, Place them in our dad’s arms And tell him they’re from us! Tell him that we love and miss him And when he turns to smile, Place a kiss upon his cheek And hold him for awhile. Because remembering him is easy We do it every day There’s an ache within our hearts That will never go away. Gone but never forgotten. Love always, Samantha and Joe




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”.
