Septage issue ban a near-sure thing: Lunney DESMOND DEVOY

MISSISSIPPI MILLS – As far as Mississippi Mills Mayor Al Lunney is concerned, the septage issue is closed insofar as it relates to the waste water treatment plant (WWTP).. “The banning of septage (spreading) in Mississippi Mills will come through no later than 2013,” said Lunney during a special council meeting on Aug. 31, according to people he has spoken to at the Ontario Ministry of the Environment. “I’ve called everybody I have ever heard

of at the Ministry of the Environment,” Lunney added. Lunney met with then-Environment Minister John Gerretsen on Aug. 10, and has heard through channels that the province’s new Environment Minister, Perth-Wellington MPP John Wilkinson, has been sent a file from Gerretsen that recommends the banning of septage spreading by 2013 “at the latest.” “The issue of banning is now a 99 per cent done deal,” said Lunney. “We need to get down to how we pay for it.”

LANARK COUNTY – Summer vacation is over for students across the Valley, which means it’s time to hit the books again. Students are armed with new clothes and school supplies for the new school year. School supply lists were distributed to let parents know what items were needed as their children enter the next grade. “The materials on the list are not mandatory,” said Upper Canada District School Board communications assistant Mark Calder. “You do not have to go out and buy these materials.” Calder said those lists are provided to guide parents who want to purchase supplies for their children or want to get items above and beyond what is required. “Parents may choose to provide additional materials…different styles of pencils, pencil crayons,” said Calder. “The bottom line is, if the student needs it, it will be provided.” Calder said those lists were created based on requests from parents. Businesses also request them to provide the guidelines directly in their stores. Some schools list an additional $10 required for specific workbooks, such as a math book at Arklan Community School in Carleton Place.

The Almonte Pakenham Minor Hockey Association hosted a family barbecue and equipment swap day at the Almonte Civitan Club on Sept. 5. Gently used hockey equipment was exchanged for the growing young hockey players in the league. The warmup obstacles, used by players in training camps and before games, were set up in the parking lot, giving older players a chance to demonstrate for new and young hockey players from the Mississippi Mills area. All proceeds from the barbecue will go towards the Almonte Arena Fundraising Project. For more information about the league, visit

Kelley Hough, who took third place in the Ramsay Ward election in 2006, is taking another run at Mississippi Mills council. Currently volunteering on the new drug strategy committee in Mississippi Mills, Hough indicated she’s dedicated to increasing awareness and reducing drug abuse in Mississippi Mills and surrounding areas. Finances are also topmost on her mind. She said Mississippi Mills has one of the highest debt ratios in comparison to similar municipalities, according to a provincial study. “It is time to buckle down and clean up the debt load,” Hough said in a statement. She indicated spending should be focused on infrastructure and maintaining buildings and equipment. This is not the time to take on “special project spending,” she continued, noting the municipality cannot continue to pass costs to taxpayers. Many special projects are partially funded by grants from the provincial and federal government, however, to apply for these grants there must be a financial commitment by the municipality, Hough said. Hough indicated the municipality needs a broader tax base to reduce the debt and control taxes.

Creating opportunities for existing businesses to grow and inviting new businesses to open their doors will allow for a more diverse community and would create jobs within for all ages. Hough also noted that the current council has yet to come up with a solid plan to raise funds from its residents for the waste water treatment plant. As a Ramsay rural homeowner, she said she will be looking for ways to reduce the costs and ensure the tipping fee paid to haulers actually goes to waste water plant revenues. Activities for youth in the community are also on Hough’s radar. The candidate noted renovations at the Almonte Recreation Centre closed the skate park for the summer. “An alternate location should have been in place to resolve the loss of this well-used facility,” Hough said in a statement. She added that council has recently been talking about banning fishing from bridges and kids jumping off the rail tracks into the Mississippi River. Hough said she feels strongly that if council is going to take away an activity or service, it is responsible for offering two other options to replace it. “As our communities reduce activities for our youth, where do you think they will go?” she asked.

Carina Hochgeschurz, a Grade 8 student at Carambeck Public School, will be getting a behind-the-scenes taste of provincial politics this fall. The youth will be heading to Queen’s Park in mid-October to work as a legislative page for up to four weeks. Hochgeschurz is one of 20 students from across the province chosen for the position. She earned her spot by submitting an application that included an essay, in which she outlined her achievements, community involvement and suitability for the program. Hochgeschurz said she was surprised when she learned she was accepted into the program, noting hundreds of students applied. “We’re so excited for her,” her mother, Colleen Hochgeschurz, said. “She really wanted it and we’re happy she has the opportunity.” Now that Hochgeschurz has been selected for the program, the hard work really begins. She received a DVD to help prepare her for the new position at the Legislative Assembly of Ontario. Hochgeschurz said she has to know all 107 MPPs by name, face and party. She also has to know who the cabinet ministers are and memorize the seating plan of the Legislative Assembly. Hochgeschurz said she has to ensure she doesn’t pass messages on to the wrong person. During a typical day in the program, pages arrive at Queen’s Park around 8 a.m., dress in their uniforms and then prepare the Legislative Chamber for the morning’s debates. Pages

Skate park near residences less likely after site survey DESMOND DEVOY

ALMONTE – The spectre of a skate park in Gemmill Park behind the swings and near the entrance from the community centre appears less likely following a visit by a skate park expert last week. Jim Barnum, president of Spectrum Skatepark Creations Limited, based in British Columbia, toured several sites in Gemmill Park that are being considered for the proposed skate park, including: in front of the arena, behind the swings, beside the tennis courts, and at the bottom of the park’s valley, where the Canada Day and Celtfest celebrations are held. Mississippi Mills recreation co-ordinator Calvin Murphy told a special on-site gathering of the town committee which oversees his office that Barnum’s information would be collected and presented at a later date, with all sites considered, and recommendations for and against made regarding the selection of a site. “There’s going to be issues with every site,” said Barnum. “There’s nothing that’s not a go.” Barnum provided the committee members, including Mayor Al Lunney, and both mayoral candidates, Brenda Hurrle and Jane Torrance, with a sneak peak at his initial reactions. At public meetings on the skate park issue, residents spoke out against the park in their backyard. “If you have neighbours who have spo-

Sites being considered for a possible skate park at Gemmill Park in Almonte were looked at to gain recommendations for and against each site. ken up, it probably won’t happen because of political problems,” said Barnum. “They (area neighbours) were just not in favour of it in this area,” said Murphy of the site behind the swings. Barnum added that, on a personal note, his preference would be the location at the bottom of the hill. As for a skate park in front of the arena, he noted that “it’s probably a little too small and a little too close,” to the

arena itself. “We want it close, but not too close.” The area at the bottom of the hill is also prone to occasional flooding, but he noted that his company has built several skate parks in flood plains before. Barnum said the tennis courts option have “unlimited expansion potential.” No matter which site is chosen, Barnum commended the town for settling on a site somewhere within Gemmill Park.

“This is it. It is the community park. I don’t think it (the skatr park) should be located anywhere else,” said Barnum. Some of the concerns raised about teenaged skateboarders acting out were addressed by Barnum, who noted it is hoped other amenities like splash pads and sledding could be added to the area in the future, as a way of having participants keep an eye on activities. “The more types of people you can get into an area, the more passive reconnaissance you have,” said Barnum. “Everybody wants to hang out at the skate park, even kids who don’t skate,” so it is important to have other options available for them as well. He also recommended a non-invasive way to help keep kids’ high spirits from getting out of hand. “They (Madoc) are getting one of the hot young skaters, training him or her in first aid,” and then having him or her act as staff to keep an eye on the kids. The skaters see him or her as “one of us,” while, at the same time, the skater is setting a good example. For a community the size of Almonte, he noted that the average size of a skate park would be between 6,000 and 7,000 square feet, at a rough cost of between $40 to $50 per square foot. His company built the skate park in Madoc, and he commended the community involvement in that site. “It (Madoc) is an amazing model for you guys to look at,” said Barnum.

‘The bottom line is, if the student needs it, it will be provided’ SCHOOL from the front page “(Requesting money for these books) is a practice that has been taking place in that area for years from what I am told,” said Calder. “I don’t think there have been complaints.” The schools, however, are required to provide families with supplies that are needed for lessons in the classroom. “This is a matter we are going to review,” said Calder, noting the board will supply those workbooks for free to parents who cannot afford to purchase them. The Lanark County Food Bank has given whatever school supplies were donated to them out to families along with the food baskets. “I can’t believe the amount of stuff you have to put in a bag to send to school,” said Nadine Kennedy of the food bank, located in Carleton Place. “You have to buy a certain type of glue, not the cheap kind.

Road safety is paramount

9/11 ‘truthers’ not worthy opponents

Pencils? Check. Books? Check. Indoor running shoes with non-marking soles? Check. The kids are ready for the back to school season and are getting settled back into the daily routine. The question is, are we ready to be dealing with school buses again? After more than two months of bus-free roads, it doesn’t hurt to take a moment to think about school year safety. Lanark County OPP is reminding motorists to take their time and be careful to help keep the students in our community safe. The Ministry of Transportation has some tips for bus riders to help keep each trip to and from school safe and stress-free. Always be at the bus stop on time so you don’t have to run to the bus. While waiting for the bus, stay in the designated area, far back from the road. When crossing the street to get on the bus, wait until the bus and all nearby traffic comes to a complete stop and the stop arm on the bus is extended with lights flashing. If you are ever unsure about safety, wait for the bus driver to signal to you. Hold the handrail when getting on the bus. Most importantly, be aware of the “danger zone.” This is the area around the bus where the driver cannot see you. If you’re close enough to touch the bus, chances are good you are out of sight. Never push or shove while getting on or off the bus. Once on the bus, be respectful and avoid being loud to help the driver concentrate, and stay in your seat. OPP are reminding motorists that when they meet up with a school bus stopped with its overhead red signal lights flashing on any road, other than a highway with a median, they must stop before reaching the bus. Do not proceed until the bus moves, or the red signal lights have stopped flashing. Those who do not comply put the safety of the children at risk, as well as their wallets, as those caught can face up to $400 in fines. General speeding fines are often increased in designated community safety zones. Community safety zones are defined as areas with signs near schools, day cares or other marked areas. OPP officers will be out patrolling to ensure motorists are following the rules of the road.

children, the ability to access local, healthy food and the need to keep crops and ones livelihood protected. I can also understand the frustration with the red tape in the registration process and excessive cost in setting up the registry in the first place. However, the chiefs of police state the gun registry is an important tool for them to keep our loved ones safe. No one is immune to violence. A long gun could be used by a family member to commit suicide, a victim of bullying in your granddaughter’s university class, or a disgruntled employee where your wife or sister works.

There are worthy opponents. Then there are opponents who are not worth your time. A few months ago, near the railway underpass in Smiths Falls, at a busy intersection, someone had spray-painted the slogan “9/11 was an inside job,” in bold black letters. For some reason, that piece of graffiti, more than any other so-called “street art” I have read, really, really annoyed me. Last year, I read Walter Cronkite’s 1996 autobiography A Reporter’s Life. One of the more interesting passages that surprised me was just how much he disliked Oliver Stone’s controversial movie JFK (1991), and how he took it to task for pandering to wild conspiracy theories about who really killed Kennedy and why. Cronkite was, after all, the man who told the American nation that their young president had died in 1963, so he had an emotional and professional investment in it. But there is something about the 9/11 “Truthers” (sounds like one of Sarah Palin’s made-up words), that just boils my blood. Certainly there are still questions that linger, even now, nine years after that day. But it’s a stretch to compare the bi-partisan 9/11 commission to the Warren Commission. And by wasting time and energy arguing that thousands of Jewish bankers didn’t come into work on Wall Street that day, or that the twin towers were brought down by a “controlled demolition,” we’re taking our eyes off the ball of the real enemy. (By the way, if there were dark geniuses who pulled this off, why then aren’t they being employed to tidy things up in Iraq or Afghanistan?) There is no ambiguity that Osama bin Laden wishes us ill.

The long gun registry is a vital tool for our police Dear Editor, As a criminologist and mother of four daughters, public safety has been an issue of concern of mine for a long time. I have worked at trying to create a Canada where men, women and children can live their lives with relative peace of mind and safety. In September, MPs will be voting on Bill C-391 – a bill to end the registration of rifles, shotguns and powerful semiautomatic rifles. I believe the repeal of the gun registry will be a step backwards in our efforts to save lives and keep communities safe. I can understand the need for farmers and hunters to own long guns. I understand the desire to pass on the traditions and culture of hunting to

LETTER, from page 8 The fact is that guns are sometimes not locked up properly, they can be stolen, and they can get into the wrong hands. The statistics speak for themselves: long guns are used in 70 per cent of gun-related deaths, women are the victims of the majority of long gun-related homicides and about 74 per cent of the fire arms recovered from suicides and suicide attempts are long guns. In addition, in 2009, police accessed the gun registry 11,000 times a day to assess risk, to remove guns from dangerous people and to solve crimes. So, why are we not giving the police the tools they need to do this difficult job? I can’t understand how on the one hand there is support to give soldiers in Afghanistan the tools they need to keep them safe, whether it is armoured tanks or $16 million fighter jets, yet we are reluctant here in Canada to do the same for our police. Why are we thinking of destroying the gun registry with the 7.5 million guns already registered when police clearly state it protects their own lives and the lives of others? This is all for an estimated cost of $3 million a year. It’s a small price to pay for a safer Canada. I am proud to live in Canada with a Charter of Rights and Freedoms. However, rights also come with responsibilities. We say to our children you have the right to drive the car but also the responsibility to get a license and to respect the laws of the road. In Canada, people have the right to own a gun and I believe it is an act of respon-

By playing up fears and concerns about 9/11, and saying it was an inside job, the Truthers are, in fact, helping the terrorists by diverting attention from their actions. In 1998, American bombs rained down on Afghanistan in an effort to kill bin Laden. In TV interviews, bin Laden had made no bones about his desire to attack American and western targets. Even if we take 9/11 out of the picture for a minute, how to explain the subway bombings in London on 7/7, the train bombings in Madrid, the Bali bombings, the bombing of the USS Cole in 2000, the attack on American embassies in 1998. And on, and on. These can’t all be conspiracies.

Councillor adds competition to reeve race KATIE MULLIGAN

BECKWITH – Ross Trimble wants to put his experience in multiple municipal roles to work as reeve in the next council term. Trimble said after 31 years of municipal experience in various levels of management, the move is right for him at this time. Trimble has worked as a municipal clerk, treasurer, planning administrator, roads superintendent, recreationist and as chief administrative officer in Beckwith. He was elected as councillor in the 2006 municipal election. One of the councillor’s accomplishments is helping to bring the Private Roads Equilization Program (PREP) to adoption in the municipality, which Trimble hopes to promote full funding for. “I would like to see more money spent on road rehabilitation,” he said, specifying the 7th Line, 9th Line and Scotch Corners Roads as major projects. Trimble will continue to “reach out to the community” by speak-

ing with residents and promoting more public involvement by hosting public meetings, workshops and open houses throughout the municipality. “(The involvement) will enhance council’s effectiveness and transparency,” he said. Trimble said the new official plan is something he feels should be the highest priority for the new council. He looks to address the preparation of the document prepared in the current term to address the coming changes. Keeping property taxes at an acceptable level while maintaining current and future municipal programs is something that is important to the reeve-hopeful. “I’d like to see the municipal dollar reconfigured,” he said. “Including how it is spent.” Throughout his campaign, Trimble plans on speaking with residents to gain feedback and perspective.

Septage finance issues discussed at meeting SEPTAGE from the front page Coun. John Edwards put forward a recommendation that the town adopt a septage treatment subcommittee, as a rural mirror of Almonte’s sewer committee, with a majority of rural councillors sitting on it, an idea which was adopted at the meeting. The meeting had been called to discuss “the financial implications of Almonte Ward operating (the) WWTP including septage,” more specifically “financing and operating the septage receiving facility on behalf of urban residents,” according to a joint report submitted to council by both treasurer Rhonda Whitmarsh and Chief Administrative Officer Diane Smithson. “Why would rural residents want Almonte to take over that part of the plant?” wondered Coun. Val Wilkinson. “I’ve always been against Almonte being the sole owner of the waste water treatment plant,” added Coun. Brenda Hurrle. “I am not in favour of the motion that Almonte take over.” Ultimately, the plan to have Almonte carry the costs of the plant met its end. “The majority of us, whether we are urban or rural, seem to be saying that the Almonte plan is a no-go,” said Lunney. “I’m not happy with what I’m seeing either,” said Coun. Garry Dalgity, who had helped bring the issue to the fore. Wilkinson called on all of the rural councillors to meet to discuss the matter further. “I’m in favour of it (the committee), but it’s five years too late,” said Coun. Rick Minnille. Councillors Alex Gillis and Jane Torrance noted the impact that rising fees would have on residents, like those living on a fixed income. “That’s a hardship,” said Gillis.

Bringing fresh Lanark County food to the table Ottawa Valley producers, chef head to Ottawa’s Feast of Fields Festival KATIE MULLIGAN

Farmers, producers and chefs are teaming up to showcase local food. On Sunday, Sept. 12, the Feast of Fields Festival will return to Ottawa, setting up at Lebreton Flats. More than 20-25 farmer/chef teams will come forward to celebrate the harvest as summer wraps up. A handful of local food producers and enthusiasts are preparing for this year’s festival, including Robert and Petra Oechsli of Alpenblick Farm in Ashton with chef Roger Weldon, Almonte’s newest head chef at J.R.’s Restaurant; Gord McGregor and Janet Larabie of Saffire Farms in Almonte with Chef Neil Mather of the Holiday Inn Kanata; The Sweet Grass Aboriginal Bistro’s Warren Sutherland with Perth-area Battle River Bison’s Richard and Cheryl Allan, as well as Taylor’s Genuine Food and Wine Bar’s John Taylor teamed with Bob and Lylah Dobson of Dobson’s Grass Fed Beef of Ashton. An original feast made up of organically produced food, including main courses, drinks and dessert, will be presented for the 500-600 festival goers. For the third year in a row, Battle River Bison, located on Highway 7 between Perth and Carleton Place, will be teaming up with Sutherland, which Richard Allan calls “a good fit.” “Our bison works well with his restaurant,” said

Richard. The Allans have owned the farm for just over four years now, after re-locating to the area from Alberta. Richard said the couple decided to move to the area, where Cheryl has family, after downsizing in the oil fields he worked. The pair can be found at the Carp Farmers’ Market during the summer season, while their meat can also be found at Foodsmiths’ in Perth and the Natural Food Pantry in Kanata. Richard said around 500 people attended last year’s event. Chef Weldon, who recently joined the team at JR’s Family in Almonte, is well known for his passion for quality local food. Since joining owner Jeff Robertson, Weldon has slowly brought the local food movement back to the restaurant, as it used to serve years ago. “It’s quite an event,” said Weldon of the Feast of Fields event, which he is attending for the fourth year in a row. “It takes place in every major city in Canada.” Weldon, formerly of Ballygiblins in Carleton Place, said the festival is great for bringing farmers, suppliers and chefs together. He has also met numerous local suppliers, thanks to the event. “This is a first time for JR’s,” said Weldon. For more information about the festival and its participants, visit feast_of_fields

CARLETON PLACE – Third generation resident Doug Smith is a familiar face at Carleton Place council meetings. Smith, who has been to most council meetings over the past four years, is hoping to gain a seat around the council table this coming term. “I have enough energy to accomplish a few things and help make our town a little better,” said Smith. “I have a very extensive platform…most of it calls for an awful lot of team work.” Smith said his mental attitude is great and he is looking to help out each day. “I wake up, just like this morning, put my feet on the floor and say, ‘Thank you Lord, this will be another great day. What can I do today,’” he said. Smith indicated he feels he has a firm understanding of council’s limitations. Smith is currently the district co-ordinator of the North Lanark Senior Games Association, representative to the Ontario Senior Games Association, president of the Carleton Place Sunset Club and director of the Eastern District Development Initiative. In the past, he has owned and operated a restaurant and motel, facilitated housing projects up north and in Labrador, worked with Leigh Instruments, was former secretary manager with the Carleton Place Chamber of Commerce, was an accountant and radio announcer for the CBC, has extensive firefighter training, been game warden for the Department of Natural Resources and more. Smith said the new health village project, which would include a new hospital for the town, is something council could influence. He also has a number of dream projects in the recreation department, including a downtown walk over the railroad tressell, a seniors

Smith said working as a team is what will make a town work. “It’s not my style to stand up and bang my gavel on the table and say, ‘This is what I am doing to do,’” he said. The candidate said town staff is very important to the municipality. “I consider the town staff to be extremely knowledgeable and professional,” he said. “Any time I have dealt with them, they have given me all information I have needed.” If elected, Smith said some of his visions include examining the development permit bylaw to make it more resident responsive, add to the recreational facilities for youth, seniors and the arts and exploit the current facilities by adding new activities, get affordable housing into the community, examine the use of consultants, work with local schools and arts groups to expand the mural program, look at the possibility of a footbridge over the Mississippi River, attract more residents to the decision-making process in the community and develop housing in the downtown core. “I hope (my visions) are headed in the right direction,” said Smith. “I seem to be on target so far with the people I talk to.” Smith said running for council has been a personally enlightening experience, causing him to look at himself, what he has done in the town and what he would like to do with Carleton Place. “Maybe that is where it’s at,” he said.

Take a walk on the wild side with MVFN MISSISSIPPI VALLEY FIELD NATURALISTS The Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists public lecture series on natural history and biology is set to start again Sept. 16. Cottagers, hunters, fishermen, canoeists, hikers, campers, artists and seasoned field naturalists alike are invited to explore what lives in Lanark County and how best to protect it for future generations. There was record attendance at MVFN’s lecture series last year. Talks this year will once again be held at the Almonte United Church, and are open to the public as well as MVFN members. You do not need to be an expert to enjoy the presentations – just a curiosity or appreciation for wild nature. Refreshments are offered at each lecture. The coming year marks the beginning of the United Nations’ Decade of Biodiversity, so the underlying theme of the series will be Biodiversity and Vital Connections for Fauna, Flora, and People. Lectures will include a wide range of topics from the psychological benefits of wild nature to the status of the wild turkey. We have species here that many people have never seen – such as red efts, whip-poor-wills, map turtles, lizards, and even egrets. Who knows what lurks in your favourite bit of local forest?

Our first lecture will be presented by Dr. Baylor Johnson, professor of philosophy and director of outdoor studies at St. Lawrence University in Canton, N.Y. Johnson has an interest in environmental philosophy and the causes and solutions to environmental problems and has written articles for journals such as Environmental Values and Rethinking Sustainability. His lecture will focus on how to amplify the benefits humans derive from time spent in wild lands, and ways to encourage everyone to similarly benefit. This is a very broad topic. Why do fall colours captivate us? Why do hunters take pleasure in the autumn deer and turkey hunts? Why do naturalists look forward to the autumn hawk migration? Why do artists so often find inspiration in our forests and lakes? Why did Jesus and the Buddha, among others, spend hours alone in the wilderness? What is clear is that while there are a great number of ways people appreciate nature, we all share a common interest in wild things and the need to experience a sense of wildness. So enjoy an evening among friends, take in some spectacular photography, and prepare yourself for an autumn and winter of talks and field trips. Attend Dr. Johnson’s presentation “Our Human Need for Wild Nature and Conserving its Incredible Diversity” that kicks off MVFN’s new lecture series Sept. 16 at

MVFN member Edwin Rohr atop Blueberry Mountain, one of Lanark County’s spectacular wild lands.

Dragon Boat Festival puts the fun in fundraising

Team Catch 22, made up of Ottawa and Lanark County paddlers, pushes hard on the Mississippi River last year. Little doggy Tink, joined by Paul Nichols, shows her team spirit by sporting a Catch 22 T-shirt at last year’s festival.

Teams sing, cheer and chant as they prepare for their races during the 2008 Dragon Boat Festival.


CARLETON PLACE – Dragon sightings on the Mississippi River is not uncommon at this time of year. The ninth-annual Carleton Place Dragon Boat Festival returns to the Carleton Place Canoe Club on Saturday, Sept. 11, kicking off around 9 a.m. Event media co-ordinator Sidney Thomson said the festival boasts a full race card with 44 teams registered and six on a waiting list. “We’re going to have a great turnout,” she said. The festival began as a collaborative effort between a number of former dragon boat paddlers, as well as the late Dale “Scoon” Scott, as a venue to raise funds

for multiple local charities. Thomson said there will be a number of teams travelling a significant distance, as well as a mix of Lanark County and Ottawa teams. This year’s event will also have a higher number of breast cancer survivor teams, said Thomson. “We have a womens’ challenge that will run at 11:15 a.m.,” said Thomson. “In this (race), there are a number of breast cancer teams.” The breast cancer teams will host the flower ceremony during the first 15 minutes of lunch. The bulk of proceeds from the festival will again go to the Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital. The festival also funds bursaries for both Carleton Place High School and Notre Dame Cath-

olic High School. Thomson said some of the money is often divided up and donated to other worthy causes in the local area. “But we don’t do it until we know how much money we’ve got,” she said. Manager/community relations officer Chantelle Troy of the hospital foundation said the donation will definitely go towards new equipment for the hospital, though no decisions will be made until they know how much is raised. Traditionally, Troy said, she provides the organizers with a list of needed equipment and something is picked out. In 2007, the $5,000 raised help purchase a Medfusion Pump, which helps the anesthetist regulate critical drugs during surgery. The following year, the $6,000 donated went toward a tourniquet machine for the operating room, which is used

to temporarily create a bloodless operation field during surgical procedures by blocking blood flow to a patient’s limbs. In 2009, that amount doubled to $12,000 and paid for a platelet mixer, as well as helped with other equipment purchases for the hospital’s laboratory. Troy said in total, a little over $100,000 is needed to replace the “aging laboratory equipment,” including a hematology mixer, biochemistry analyzer and a plasma thawing system. Thomson said all of the volunteers are “the backbone” of the festival. “All of our volunteers are great,” she said, including the Carleton Place Civitan Club, who has provided helpers from the first year of the event. “Our festival relies completely on volunteers…they are absolutely amazing.”

North Lanark seniors win first Actifest medals MARILYN SNEDDEN District 7A

For the first time since the seniors in this area formed their own Games Association (District 7A), bronze medals were brought home from the Ontario level competition. Called Actifest, the competition was held in Oshawa from Aug. 11-12, at the Durham College Campus. This was a tremendous event to organize, with over 1,200 competitors who stayed in the lovely dorms on campus, but had to travel across the city to a swimming pool, a bowling alley, bocce courts, golf courses and a ballpark. Those playing card games played on campus and took some ribbing from those of us playing eight games of bocce or throwing 80 horseshoes per team in the sun. The slo-pitch ball team suffered some colourful injuries according to Delmer Cavanagh, but managed to play the next day. Forty-four people from this area participated

and everyone did their best, but only Pakenham’s Freda Somerton and Almonte’s Jean Smith came home with medals around their neck, so congratulations are in order for their achievement. The teammates earned bronze in horseshoes. Marion Timmins, our past president, deserves much credit for getting the background paperwork done and guiding new president Guy Chaput through his first big test. Doug Smith, our district co-ordinator, visited most competitions and sorted out problems before and during Actifest. Art Levi, our treasurer, doled out money for t-shirts, bus fares, etc. So many volunteers worked hard to make this exciting event happen. Fall events are getting underway, so if you are 55-plus and want to play shuffleboard in Almonte, Pakenham or Carleton Place, or carpet bowling in Almonte, contact the recreation directors in your Photo submitted municipality to be referred to the proper person. Pakenham’s Freda Somerton, left, and Almonte’s Jean Smith both More participants are welcome and the good fun earned a bronze medal in horseshoes at the Ontario Actifest competiand exercise will keep you healthy. tion, held in Oshawa mid-August.

Former councillor hopes to return to serve community KATIE MULLIGAN

BECKWITH – Former councillor Tim Campbell is more than ready for the upcoming municipal election. “I bring a lot of experience and feel there is a place for a voice like mine,” he said. Campbell has been away from the council table for one term after serving two terms for Beckwith and two terms with Carleton Place in the past. “I really enjoy the work and I enjoy

working for the people of Beckwith,” he said. “I like to be their voice on council as much as I can.” The councillor hopeful spends time on a variety of committees in both municipalities, including the Victoria School Museum, Beckwith Lilac Festival and the Beckwith Heritage Days Festival, which he has been part of since it began. “I really like to think of myself as a voice for those (committees) as well,” he said. Campbell is also an active volun-

teer with Lanark County United Way, and looks to promote those programs which assist people who have various needs. “There is in the neighbourhood of 300 people in Beckwith who benefit from the programs,” said Cambell. The potential councillor said most of the development of Beckwith Park took place while he sat on council. “I’m very proud of that,” he said. “And I am generally proud of the way we (the council) dealt with people.” Campbell said he always felt the council dealt with the people directly and fairly and wants to continue doing so. “We were not hiding from the people,” he said.

“I really enjoy the work and I enjoy working for the people of Beckwith.” • Tim Campbell

With a new official plan in place once the new council term begins, Campbell would like to see development done in accordance with that new plan in the township. “No further annexations in our communities,” he said. “I’d prefer not to. Development should be done in Beckwith.” Campbell will be hitting the streets, going door to door to Indoor and outdoor storage for your meet with residents face to face. “An election campaign is a reBOATS, RV’s etc. ally great way to meet people,” said Campbell. Various sizes are available! “I get to listen to what they have to say and I get to talk to them on a one-on-one basis. I For more information call can learn from them and they can learn from me.”

The Almonte Curling Club (ACC) is offering Monday night specials this season. “We have wonderful curling facilities in Almonte and we are hoping to attract more curlers to our Monday night draw,” said ACC president Brian Kelly. “It’s a great opportunity to former and new curlers to get to know and enjoy our sport.” The ACC holds free coaching clinics and provides equipment for new curlers. Monday night teams will be formed from those members who sign up for the draw, so curlers don’t need to be part of a team to join. Curlers who play on Monday nights will become full members for $120 for the year. The Monday night special offer is available to all club members, and any curler who plays on another night will be able to curl Mondays for $60. “When my wife, Wendy, and I moved here a few years ago, we were warmly received by this great group of people who live in and around Almonte,” Kelly said. Members will be able to choose from the usual draws. Day curlers, seniors and retirees can play up to three times/week with Wednesday and Thursday evening draws. There will also be the junior, bantam and little rocks programs. Registration will be held at the curling club, adjacent to the Community Centre on Bridge Street on Sept. 16, from 7 to 9 p.m. and on Sept. 18 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Call Kelly at 613-256-0337, Marc Cousineau at 613-256-9068 for more information.

Lanark County council will be asking municipalities to help guide a vision for “Local Priorities for a Sustainable County.” That is the theme of the county-wide official plan that is getting underway, and planning consultants from Stantec will be making presentations to each Lanark County municipal council to get feedback on ideas and directions for the plan. “We need to hear from decision maker about what the local priorities are, and the initial reaction,” said Pierre Mercier, a Stantec planning consultant who is working n the plan. “It gets the message across right at the beginning about the direction that the county wants to take.” An official plan is a land use policy that directs longterm growth and development through a series of regulations. It will cover similar issues that lower-tier municipal official plans, but with a county-wide focus, such as environmental protection, transportation, water and wastewater. County councillors were divided on how the official plan should be presented. Some, like Lanark Highlands Mayor Bob Fletcher, said consultants should highlight that creating

an official plan was required in order to access $2 million worth of gas-tax money. “That’s why we are doing this. We here at the county have to take care of our county budget,” Fletcher said. Beckwith Reeve Richard Kidd agreed, saying the public has to be made aware of the financial implications of why an official plan is necessary. “They are going to see it as adding another layer – a regional government,” Kidd said. If the county chose not to create an official plan, it would lose the $2 million in provincial gas tax grants, which equates to an eight per cent increase on the county portion of residents’ tax bills. The “road show” began Tuesday, Sept. 7 with presentations at municipal council and committee meetings in Lanark Highlands Perth and Montague. The Mississippi Mills presentation will take place on Sept. 14 at 6 p.m. Presentations will continue on Sept. 21 in Drummond/North Elmsley at 3 p.m., Tay Valley at 7 p.m. and Carleton Place at 8 p.m. Beckwith will see the presentation on Sept. 27 at 7 p.m. There will also be three public open houses scheduled in the fall, to ask for feedback and demographic information from county residents.

Flying predator overtakes black squirrel in Almonte

An interesting hawk picture and story comes with this column. On Aug. 25, on Harold Street, Almonte, Pamela and Steve Preiss heard American crows being very loud and noisy in the neigh-

bourhood. Perched on the fence, behind Holy Name of Mary Catholic School, was a juvenile red-tailed hawk with a black squirrel in its talons. Were the crows letting others know of the predator’s presence, or did they want the squirrel? Pamela snapped a good photo of this hawk. On Aug. 20, Robin Rogers called in a report of a pair of wild turkeys with nine youngsters foraging around their barn. There were originally 12, but three were missing on the 19th. Robin lives in the Scotch Corners area. Meanwhile, Steve Miller reports that the great egret is still near his property in Scotch Corners.

The day before, in the Bell bush lot (now NCC property), off Clayton Road, Mississippi Valley Naturalists were assisting NCC biologists with a forest regeneration inventory. While there, they heard a red-eyed vireo, an eastern wood-pewee, and saw one white-breasted nuthatch. Mary and Harold Robinson, Clayton area, spotted three green herons and saw a belted kingfisher as well. In Pakenham village, Joel Byrne observed common nighthawks flying around the apartment buildings there, Aug. 23. Margaret Fleming, in Carleton Place, noted 12 nighthawks flying over High Street on Aug. 25. In Almonte, Aug. 27,

Carol Marshall watched an osprey along Country Street as it hunted. West of town, Terry Kotjila spotted six nighthawks flying over, Aug. 25. Around her yard and feeders are many chipping sparrows, rose-breasted grosbeaks with juveniles, and at least four ruby-throated hummingbirds. The hummers are busy chasing each other, trying to be first one at the feeder. The odd warbler species is present, but hard to find in all the leaves, and in their confusing fall colours. Please call Lynda at: 613256-5013, or email: bennett@ with bird reports.

Photo by Pamela Preiss

This was the scene on Harold Street in Pakenham as a red-tailed hawk clutches a black squirrel in its talons. Steve and Pamela Preiss heard the calls of crows and upon investigation, caught a glimpse of the action.

just show their support for someone going through the whole cancer thing,” she says. The 2009 walk attracted 127 participants, more than double the previous year’s numbers, and Gerry Leger, who along with his wife Elizabeth, cochairs the steering committee for the event, is hoping to match or better that turnout on this fifth anniversary of the event. “The Canadian Cancer Society Taking Steps Against Breast Cancer five-kilometre walk provides the residents of Carleton Place and Mississippi Mills with a chance to participate in a meaningful fundraising activity in your own backyard,” says Leger. “None of us need additional motivation to help raise funds to make us cancer free since we all know someone who has or is doing a personal fight back against the disease.” Taking Steps Against Breast Cancer is also a way to celebrate survivors and remember those who have lost their lives to the disease. It brings family and friends together for an enjoyable community event. Last year, Latourell was among 13 survivors at the walk and she encourages

Town Hall, TD Canada Trust, CIBC, Ferguson Graphics and The Granary; and in Mississippi Mills at Levi Home Hardware, JR’s Restaurant, Mississippi Mills Municipal Office, Clayton General Store and Pakenham

NOW THAT’S A TRUCK Carleton Place’s Cameron Gray, 3, poses with his father Chris and three-month-old brother William, in front of a huge truck at the Perth Fair, which took place over the Labour Day long weekend. 413853

Marilyn Latourell will never forget that day in the fall of 1998 when she received the dreaded news that she had breast cancer. “It was shocking,” the Carleton Place resident says of the diagnosis. “I think when you are younger, you don’t really expect that thing to happen to you.” It did, however, and now almost 12 years later as a breast cancer survivor, Latourell is doing her part to raise awareness of this form of cancer and to raise funds for breast cancer research. For the past two years, she has taken part in the Canadian Cancer Society Taking Steps Against Breast Cancer walk in Carleton Place, both as a walker and as a volunteer. Last year, she was accompanied in the five-kilometre event by her husband Steve and two daughters Rebecca and Stephanie. Latourell will be back again in these two roles at the fifth-annual walk planned for Sept. 18 at the Carleton Place and District Youth Centre on Mill Street. “It’s a good thing that people of all ages can participate and

others to get involved. “I think it is important to acknowledge the fact that you are a survivor,” she says. “Sometimes it’s good that people know there’s someone they know if they need to turn for help.” Registration for the Sept. 18 Taking Steps Against Breast Cancer will take place from 11 to 11:45 a.m. The opening ceremonies will commence at 11:45 a.m., followed by the walk. Cancer surgeon Dr. Doug Mirsky will once again be a special guest at the opening ceremonies while local musician Jack Denovan will be providing musical entertainment throughout the event. An estimated 5,400 Canadian women died from breast cancer in 2009, and one in nine will face a diagnosis at some point in their lifetime. Join the Canadian Cancer Society Taking Steps Against Breast Cancer. Register online at or call the Lanark, Leeds and Grenville Unit of the Canadian Cancer Society at 613-267-1058 or toll-free at 1-800-367-2913.

Photo submitted by Val Hamilton

SURPRISE GUEST Miguel Street resident Liny Turcotte got an unexpected surprise on Sept. 4. Her neighbour across the street called her sometime between 9 and 10 a.m. to let her know she had a visitor taking a nap on her front step. Her daughter, Val Hamilton, managed to snap a photo of the red fox before it wandered away. Turcotte, who has lived in the area since 2003, said this is the first year she’s seen foxes in her neighbourhood. According to the Ministry of Natural Resources, foxes will select den sites near human areas and are commonly found in many large urban centres in Ontario.

“Words of Wisdom” by the residents at Kingsway Arms at Carleton Place Manor One of the first things that comes to mind when you think of summer are beautiful weddings and all of the festivities that go along with it. The bride dressed up in her beautiful gown simply glowing and the groom anxiously waiting at the end of the aisle both anticipating their life together. So why is it that so many marriages today end in divorce? Why did marriages in our day last 40, 50 or even 60 years? What makes a good marriage? These were the questions we tackled in our discussion group this month. Almost unanimously we felt that the key ingredients to a good marriage were a solid friendship and good conversation, openness and honesty, mutual respect, and common interests and values. It was felt that today so much time is spent “keeping up with the Jones’s” with both parents working outside of the home to do that. The commercial world and pressures on young couples and young parents has taken away from the things that really matter and that is the family. We also felt that what is profoundly lacking today is a sense of spirituality both individually and within marriages and the family. In our day the church and a sound spiritual life helped us through the rough times in a marriage and rough times in general. We were also reminiscing about how, no matter what was going on, the family always sat down for meals together. Today young kids are running off to sports and other group activities with a sandwich or meal on the go in hand. Does this mean that in our day there were no divorces or unhappy marriages? Absolutely not! But it seems that the vows we took were more sacred and a lot harder to break than today. Our advice is to keep the focus on the family unit and remember the meaning of the vows that you exchanged on your wedding day. As Dr. Phil McGraw says “spend more time planning your marriage than your wedding”. 414294
