Pakenham Ward hopefuls grilled on septage charges PATRICIA LONERGAN


October 7, 2010 | 40 Pages

Charges associated with the new waste water treatment plant in Mississippi Mills took centre stage at the Pakenham Ward all candidates debate on Sept. 29. Voters in Pakenham Ward questioned councillors about the fairness of the one-time $120 septage fee for rural residents. The Pakenham Business and Tourism Association hosted the evening event at the Stewart Community Centre, which included candidates from Pakenham Ward, the public school board, as well as those running for mayor. Once the floor was opened to questions, Shaun McLaughlin, who identified himself

as a Ramsay Ward candidate but a Pakenham Ward voter, told both councillor-hopefuls and mayoralty candidates that the one-time tax levy for septage, coupled with usage fees, is unfair. Others also touched on the financial arrangements associated with the new waste water treatment facility. Most candidates agreed the one-time charge to rural residents is fair. Mayoral candidate Brenda Hurrle explained the waste water treatment plant is necessary because the lagoons are 40 years old and the Ministry of the Environment has told the municipality to do something about waste water treatment.

CARLETON PLACE – The 17-pounder Howitzer gun that has been in Memorial Park since the 1960s is on its last legs. Over time, it has sat through the elements and cleaning from vandalism. Ron Goebel, vice chair of provincial command


of the Royal Canadian Legion and member of local branch 192, said the Carleton Place legion looked into repairing the historical Second World War gun. “We were told it is dilap idated beyond repair,” said Goebel. “We were told it is basically scrap.” See GUNS on page 11

A group of teachers laugh as they get their heads shaved during a special assembly on Oct. 1. The new look was part of a promise to students if fundraising efforts brought in $4,000 for the school’s Terry Fox Run.

Putting the ‘fun’ in fundraising Students at Naismith Public School got a lot of surprises after their annual Terry Fox Run on Friday, Oct. 1. Teachers kissed pigs, were pied in the face, and a few even had their heads shaved during an assembly after the run. Ten teachers had promised to kiss a pig if students raised $2,000. Another 10 agreed to get a pie in the face if $3,000 was put in the pot. And five brave teachers offered to get their heads shaved if fundraising efforts garnered $4,000. Not knowing exactly how much they had managed to raise, students were delighted to learn they reached their final goal, and took great joy in watching as their teachers kept up their end of the bargain.

“They have the same liability. They have the same responsibilities. They should receive the same privileges (as the other directors).”

MISSISSIPPI MILLS – Mississippi Mills’ town council’s representative on the board of directors of the Mississippi River Power Corporation will now be fully compensated to the tune of $5,000 a year, plus expenses, just like other members of the board. “They have the same liability. They have the same responsibilities. They should receive the same privileges (as the other directors),” said Coun. Garry Dalgity, during a committee of the whole meeting on Monday, Oct. 4. The matter had been referred from the town’s finance, administration and policy committee, who had met on Thursday, Sept. 30. Dalgity noted that not compensating the council’s representative on the MRPC board could lead to litigation under Article 248 of the Ontario Business Corporations Act. According to Dalgity’s research, the proposed amendment to the Unanimous Shareholders Declaration states that each of the corporation, except the council representative, shall be paid an annual stipend of $5,000. Expenses for town meetings and/or conferences will be $75 per day, plus registration, travel and accommodations, with a maximum of two per year. “Do we really want to get involved in this?” asked Dalgity. Coun. John Edwards, who chaired the meeting, thanked Dalgity for his diligent research but noted that, “that’s the kind of information that should come to the table before a meeting. It should be brought forward in an appropriate way.” Dalgity responded that he had only just come across the information, and that the meeting was the first opportunity he had to present it. “I suggest that we treat the council members exactly the same as with other committees,” said Coun. Alex Gillis.

Brenda Hurrle agreed with Dalgity. “The shareholder (the town of Mississippi Mills) is the only shareholder. The shareholder has appointed you (the representative) there,” said Hurrle.

Crampton Drive Crew gathers items for young parents KATIE MULLIGAN

CARLETON PLACE – Most kids who get before and after school care are focused on having fun and enjoying their time and staying out of trouble. This is only a fraction of what a group of youngsters do during their time at caregiver Lena Legault’s house on Crampton Drive, Carleton Place. Young Helyn, Aidan, Rylan, Steven, Kyle and Liam have been involved with the community over the past while and make up the Crampton Drive Crew. From giving donations to the Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital to participating in the Carleton Place Santa Claus Parade, the youngsters enjoy being part of the community and working on making it a better place. They are also known for making the lives of their neighbours better by bringing up empty recycling bins to door steps after garbage day and pitching in to keep the community clean from garbage. Most recently, the group has been inspired to help young mothers in Lanark County.

“Boy or girl, every baby uses diapers.” • Lena Legault

The group was recently approached by Connections, part of Lanark Health and Community Services, located in Carleton Place. Caddis Esbensen, program co-ordinator with Connections said after hearing about the Crampton Drive Crew, she was very impressed with what they do. One of the services Connections provides is helping young mothers out with their pregnancies, having their children and learning how to take care of them. After hearing of the young mothers in need, the Crampton Drive Crew decided a great way to help out would be donating diapers. “They decided they were going to buy diapers,” said Legault. “But they didn’t want (the money) coming from their parents, they wanted to do it on their own.” The group scrounged up their allowance money and began pur-

chasing diapers for the cause. As word of mouth spread, donations also rolled in from the neighbourhood, including a $25 gift card from Serge Robichaud of Steve’s Independent Grocer in Carleton Place. As of mid-September, the kids said they were able to donate over 500 diapers to the program. “We are very happy to have all of these diapers,” said Esbensen. The crew is also accepting donations of gently used clothing for a clothing carousel, which will take place on Nov. 6, giving the young mothers a chance to have quality clothing for their newborn babies. Legault said the kids’ decision to collect diapers was a smart one that she is very proud of. “Boy or girl, every baby uses diapers,” she said. Connections operates various community programs, such as the birth companion, good food for a healthy baby, home visiting, parent and children’s groups and dad’s drop-in support programs. The goal is to help parents improve their capacity to raise healthy children and increase participation of vulnerable families in the community.

The Crampton Drive Crew, well known in their neighbourhood for helping out, are collecting diapers to donate to young families in Carleton Place.

Auxilians Contribute to River of Life The Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital (CPDMH) Auxiliary is pleased to announce that retired Auxilians, Eileen Healey, Ruth Mooney and Joan Pierce, have accessed $500 grants from their former employers on behalf of the Hospital. The grants were made available through Employee Volunteer Programs with Bell Canada and RBC. “I love the Hospital and the Auxiliary is a fantastic organization, so accessing this money on the Hospital’s behalf was a very easy decision for me,” stated Ruth Mooney. Mrs. Mooney was employed by Bell Canada for 24 years and has been volunteering in the Auxiliary’s Gift Shop for 6 years. Mrs. Healey and Mrs. Pierce are both former RBC employees who volunteer the Hospital’s information desk and often work together on the HELPP Lottery at Giant Tiger. Mrs. Healey worked with RBC for 17 years and has been an Auxilian for 4 years. Mrs. Pierce has been volunteering with the Hospital for 10 years and spent 20 years as an RBC employee. “I really believe in the doing what I can for the hospital and I am very pleased that RBC is willing to provide this grant to recognize my volunteer time”, stated Joan Pierce. The three Auxilians have directed their grants to the Auxiliary’s River of Life. The River of Life represents a scene on the Mississippi River which includes Morphy Falls, the Town Hall and elements of nature such as ducks, river stones, and the leaves of a tree. The mural recognizes individuals, businesses, and community organizations by having their names’ incorporated onto the elements on brass plaques. The River of Life was designed by the Auxiliary in 2001 and is located in the main hallway of the Hospital. Funds raised through the River of Life will be used to support new and ongoing hospital programs and purchase essential equipment, all of which will increase the comfort and quality of care for all hospital users. “We are delighted that Bell Canada and RBC have recognized the service of our volunteers with these donations,” stated Jean Jones, President of the CPDMH Auxiliary. “We hope these gifts will encourage some of our other volunteers to explore other possible donations on our behalf.”

“When I retired, it was an easy decision for me to spend time volunteering with the Hospital,” stated Mrs. Healey. “I am very happy that I was able receive to this grant on the Hospital’s behalf and I would like to thank RBC for this wonderful donation.”

Before heading to the polls on Oct. 25, take the opportunity to hear what the candidates have to say and let them know what is important to you. On Wednesday, Oct. 13, the Carleton Place and District Chamber of Commerce will be hosting an all candidates night at the Neelin Street Community Centre in the upper hall. Mayoral candidates Wendy LeBlanc and Paul Dulmage will be joined by deputy mayor hopefuls Dennis Burn and Ed Sonnenburg, as well as 14 council candidates competing for five spots on council. School board trustee candidates Anne McRae, Patti Lennox and Chris Dunham aiming for the local seat with the Upper Canada District School Board, as well as Brigitte Pilon and Guy R. Lanctot hoping for the spot with Le Conseil Des Ecoles Catholiquies De Langue Francaise Du Centre Est will be on hand to share what they have to offer. Doors will open at 5 p.m., followed by the debate kicking off at 6 p.m. and will run approximately three hours. For more information about the Carleton Place all candidates night, contact the chamber at 613257-1976 or visit www.cpchamber. com Meanwhile, those in Almonte Ward can hear from their candidates on Thursday, Oct. 14. Mayoral candidates Brenda Hurrle, John Levi and Jane Torrance will be joined by Almonte Ward candidates Bernard Cameron, Garry Dalgity, Alex Gillis, Rickey Minnile, Christopher O’Brien and Phil Wood. The six councillor-hopefuls are vying for four spots on council. Trustees will also be on hand to answer questions. Organized by the Hub, the Almonte Ward debate will kick off at 7 p.m. at the Almonte Old Town Hall. Glenda Jones, president of The Hub, said the debate has been broken into wards because it would become too unwieldy to have everyone at the same meeting. “No one would get a chance to ask questions or talk,” she said. She said the debates are an easy format so people can either take part or just sit back and watch. The three mayoralty candidates will have four minutes to talk while those vying for a councillors chair will have three minutes. Questions will be both pre-written and verbal. Jones is encouraging residents to head out to the debates. If you have any questions or require further information about the Almonte Ward meeting, contact Glenda Jones at 613-256-6479 or email

Pakenham candidates debate puts septage in the spotlight PAKENHAM from the front

Patricia Lonergan / Canadian Gazette

One of the three Pakenham Ward hopefuls Duncan Abbott, left, and mayoral candidate Jane Torrance take questions from residents, particularly about septage concerns, during the all candidates debate on Sept. 29. Abbott, along with Phil Warland and Denzil Ferguson are the three candidates competing for the two Pakenham Ward seats with Mississippi Mills council. Torrance is against Brenda Hurrle and John Levi for the mayor’s seat.

Where is Jim Watson on the Carp Dump? On June 23, 2010, I wrote to mayoral candidate Jim Watson asking him to state his position on the expansion of the Carp Dump. It is important for my constituents in the Stittsville area and citizens throughout Ottawa for that matter to know if Jim Watson supports the expansion of the dump or not. Not only has there been no reply to my letter as of yet, Mr. Watson has repeatedly ignored my inquiries by fax and phone as to where the reply is; four months after the fact. As an elected representative of Stittsville I have been very clear on my opposition to this expansion, as has the current Mayor of Ottawa, Larry O’Brien. As October 25th fast approaches Mr. Watson should be straight with people of Stittsville and Ottawa! Norm Sterling, M.P.P. Carleton-Mississippi Mills

The one-time capital charge of $120 is reasonable, Hurrle said, noting Almonte Ward residents are looking at a $3,000 to $4,000 per household debt load. Whether it’s mandated by the province or not, building a waste water treatment plant is the responsible approach to dealing with septage, mayoral-hopeful Jane Torrance said. She indicated she also agrees with the $120 charge. John Levi, one of three running for the mayor’s post, indicated that, as a rural resident, he’s willing to pay his share of the capital costs. Pakenham Ward incumbent Denzil Ferguson and candidate Duncan Abbott also indicated their support for the charge, which Abbot called a “small slice.” Ferguson added that $120 is not too much to ask of residents for their participation in a program that will benefit not just them, but also their children and grandchildren. Phil Warland, meanwhile, argued that it’s hard to justify the $120 charge when he has no control over which way the hauler turns once the truck leaves his property. “I think it will be settled before the election anyway,” he told the room full of voters. “If you find it unfair, make sure you cast your ballot accordingly.”

One resident suggested he would have preferred a $120 cut in services instead of being charged for the new plant. Suggesting that taxes have increased 200 per cent since 1987, he asked candidates how they would restrain spending. Levi said the town needs to seriously look at the costs of its operations, noting there’s been an increase in staffing levels. He indicated he believes there are better financial controls that could be put in place. “Twenty-three years is a long time,” Hurrle cautioned, adding that there has been inflation, plus the province, under Mike Harris, downloaded a lot of costs to municipalities. “I pay the same taxes you do,” she continued, agreeing that the town has to slow spending and reduce its debt, although there isn’t a lot of fat to trim. Torrance added that a $250,000 grant was clawed back from the province and the municipality is under pressure to increase programming, so she cannot foresee any cuts, but the town has to stop its increases. While the mayoralty candidates spoke about fiscal restraint, some in the room questioned the local candidates on maintaining and improving infrastructure in the ‘hamlet.’ Abbott said a balance has to be struck between what needs to be done and tax increases, arguing the rate can’t be held at zero while the infrastructure crumbles. Warland suggested council has to balance between the “nice to have” and “needs to have” projects. Ferguson noted many capital projects have been identified, so the municipality can now address the issues that have slipped through the cracks. Candidates also addressed the issue of Hydro profits, which are currently earmarked for water and sewage in Almonte. Almost all agreed Mississippi Mills is a single municipality and the money should be put into a single pot. Hurrle suggested the town needs to engage in an open and respectful conversation about Hydro revenues as soon as possible. All the debt and assets belong to everyone, she said, so the municipality needs to share equally. Torrance was the only candidate to speak out against sharing. She said she feels there’s an opportunity to share, but there’s an obligation and promise made to Almonte. “I will not go back on my word,” Torrance said, adding that she’s willing to share what’s over and above the budgeted revenue offset.

Counting the costs of kids’ shoes

Have your say before the vote



ct. 25 is just around the corner. In our communities, we have a lot of reading to do. In Beckwith, Mississippi Mills and Carleton Place, we have a total of 44 candidates – and that is not including the acclaimed position in Beckwith and the seven candidates for a total of two public and two separate school board trustee positions. There are many ways to prepare and educate yourself for a municipal election. By now, particularly if you live in town, chances are good you’ve had at least one candidate come to your door to introduce themselves. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and learn more about what they are planning to do while they’re standing on your doorstep. Each week, we have been featuring candidate profiles and will continue to get your local candidates out there to help you be more informed. These days, more and more candidates are using the web as a tool to get their information out, whether they host election websites or use social networking, such as Facebook, to reach a tech-savvy generation. Finally, all candidates debates are happening across the board. Pakenham ward candidates, along with Mississippi Mills mayoral candidates debated the issues while Ramsay Ward hopefuls, again with the three in the mayor’s race, gathered at the Almonte Old Town Hall on Oct. 4. Tonight (Oct. 7), Beckwith residents have the chance to meet the new candidates, as well as talk to the incumbents to get a better look into the next term. All 18 candidates in Carleton Place will take the stage at the upper hall of the Neelin Street Community Centre on Oct. 13 while the Almonte Ward hopefuls, joined again by the mayoral candidates, will occupy the AOTH for the final all candidates debate on Oct. 14. Take the time to hear what your candidates have to say and make your voice heard. Whatever works best for you, take advantage of it. While it’s your right to vote, an undereducated vote won’t help your community go in the direction you want it to. for up-to-date election coverage in Carleton Place, Beckwith Township and Mississippi Mills, visit

A prosperous downtown requires resident support Dear Editor, As a former resident of the Merrickville area, I agree with Scott Dunlop’s letter (CP needs to create a more prosperous downtown). Carleton Place has done much to attract more shoppers to Bridge Street, and that’s good for our town. Perhaps more needs to be done, for example, marketing surveys, increased parking, or similar measures. However, in my opinion, you cannot directly compare Merrickville with our town. They have the Rideau Canal and the Blockhouse Museum. These are two impressive tourist attractions which always draw crowds. The way I see it, Carleton Place doesn’t have too much that would be their equal. And yes, Merrickville is a quaint, well-kept village, complete with artist’s galleries, cafés and gift chops. But, it wasn’t always that way. Thirty or 35 years ago, the village was, quite frankly, a dump. Abandoned, run-

down buildings riddled the main street. Sidewalks were broken and decrepit. But, the village council decided to do something about it. They set out to clean up the village. Streets and sidewalks were re-constructed. Soon, the rest of the village got on board, and things improved. Before too long, the tourists that previously only visited the Blockhouse Museum were making their way down the main street. This fostered the growth of small shops, cafés and restaurants. Soon after, the artisans settled in. I’m not saying a similar transformation could occur here. There are many viable businesses downtown and they all seem to do all right. I’m not sure what would be the magic bullet for Bridge Street. But, what wouldn’t hurt would be for us as residents to shop there whenever it’s possible. The Big Box stores will always be here. If we want to have a decent downtown, we should support it. Gary Van Derham

I can see now why a government once fell because of children’s shoes. In 1982, the Irish coalition government of Dr. Garret FitzGerald fell after only seven months in office, because he wanted to extend the Value Added Tax (Ireland’s version of the GST) on to children’s shoes. Needless to say, the mammies of the nation made their feelings felt and two Independent MPs voted against the measure in the budget, enough to bring down the government and force an election – the second of what would turn out to be three elections in the space of 18 months. It may be a bit of an extreme example, but it perfectly illustrates just how expensive good children’s shoes are. Yes, they do grow up very quickly, and clothing manufacturers know this. A t-shirt you had when you graduated from high school, provided it still fits, can provide years of wear, unless it has something very dated on it like “I Shot J.R.” or “Is That Your Final Answer?” Children’s footwear, though, have a living life per child that can appear to be measured in seconds. Michaela’s new white indoor runners look great on her, but she also got her first sight of Daddy getting sticker shock too. A recent search for size four rain boots for Michaela, who turns one this month, proved to be a modern-day equivalent of the search for the Holy Grail. We looked at children’s consignment stores in Carleton Place, various Wal Marts and even a large, second-hand children’s clothing and toy exhibition at the Beckwith sports complex one Saturday morning. Some great finds, but no rain boots. Ultimately, our prayers were answered, appropriately enough, at Trinity United Church in Smiths Falls at a mom-to-mom sale. Thank goodness for handme-downs.

It is hoped it was because of a lack of advance notice, and not general disinterest or apathy, that kept so many townspeople away from a memorable event on Saturday at Memorial Park. Branch 192 of the Royal Canadian Legion in Carleton Place held a rededication ceremony that celebrated the upgrading of the cenotaph and at the same time unveiled a portion of Franklin Street between Beckwith and Judson hereafter to be known as Veterans Way. Dignitaries outnumbered the general public, but their numbers were augmented by a good showing of Armed Forces personnel. The diminishing number of veterans who marched, or walked with assistance, from Town Hall to the park, reminds us once again the importance of keeping alive the memory of those who gave so much, to assure us of a future in a free world. This, in fact, was the whole reason behind the ceremony on Saturday. For many years the cenotaph has been in dire need of upgrading and repair. The original centre portion was erected by the Captain Hooper Chapter IODE in 1924 and later the flanged sides were added by the town. This year Branch 192 of the Royal Canadian Legion took on the massive task of bringing the cenotaph up to a standard fitting the

remembrance of those Carleton Place men who paid the supreme sacrifice in both world wars and Korea. The end result is something of which this whole community can be justly proud. The brick walkaround, the resetting of the entire monument, and the general upgrading of the site was a class job well done, and the legion is to be thanked, and congratulated. The Captain Hooper IODE is grateful that one of our members, Julie Sadler, was invited to be part of the planning group by the legion. Our president, Donna Nield Kerry, spoke for all our members when she said those of us who attended this special ceremony were justly proud of the role our chapter has played by first establishing the memorial so many years ago. For those who missed this memorable event, it is to be hoped that they will take a walk to Memorial Park, view the site, and if they can, thank a legion member. This upgrading is just one of the continuous challenges our local legion has met in our community, as it works tirelessly to bring a better life to our citizens, while striving to keep alive the memory of those who sacrificed so much for our country.

On Saturday, Oct. 2 we held a cenotaph rededication ceremony in Carleton Place. It was a most meaningful event and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who attended. In particular, I would like to thank those who participated in our ceremony as well as all those who volunteered in assisting with the preparations, the ceremony itself and the reception afterwards. Although the ceremony was most successful, it was somewhat marred when we learned that someone had skateboarded on one of our granite benches at the cenotaph, leavaing marks engrained into the black granite. As I had mentioned during our ceremony, Memorial Park and our cenotaph should be considered sacred grounds. For it is this park and cenotaph that has been dedicated to our veterans who fought and died so we can enjoy the freedom and democracy that

we have today. I would strongly urge all parents in the Town of Carleton Place to teach your children just what remembrance is all about and what the cenotaph and Memorial Park represents. It is our responsibility as citizens of our community to ensure that the sacrifice that was paid by so many is never forgotten. It is also our responsibility to continue to have Memorial Park and our cenotaph remain as very sacred grounds. It is not an area where skateboarding or any other recreational activities or acts of vandalism should be taking place. As is engraved on our two granite benches, located in front of our cenotaph, “We Will Remember Them� and “Lest We Forget.� Please ensure that all of us, including our children, do just that.

Foul septage smells to be thing of the past SAM COOLEY Student reporter

If you have ever driven past the large pools of liquid located in the outskirts of Almonte on Wolf Grove Road, you may have wondered, “What is that God awful smell? Is it something inside of the car?” All passengers refuse to take responsibility for the foul odour. This is because the perpetrator is not inside the car. That putrid scent comes from the local sewage treatment facility, which locals collectively refer to as “The Lagoons.” I have been faced with this scenario several times over the past couple of years, starting with disgust, and then leading to confusion. Driving towards my house late one night, a friend of mine asked me, “Do you smell that?” My nasal passages were clear at the time, and I nodded that I too, smelled the odour. Another passenger in the car asked the driver if we ran over a skunk. “No man, look where we are,” said the driver. “The lagoons,” someone said, and we all fell into laughter over the whole thing. This has happened to me before on my own. Walking home one early summer morning, I caught wind of this rude smell assaulting my nostrils. I immediately thought that I must have stepped on something awful. When the search for fecal matter on the soles of my shoes showed up blank, I smiled, realizing that it was ‘just the lagoons.’ The lagoons function as a large septic tank for the surrounding area. Naturally the smell emitted by this system of septage treatment will not be overwhelmingly pleasant to nearby nostrils, but

some claim that the smell has been getting worse. “I live about two kilometres away and sometimes I even smell it if I am in my backyard,” said Kayla Rawlins, an Almonte resident. “Over the years we have received a lot of complaints about the smell” said Almonte Ward Coun. Garry Dalgity. He explained the town has recognized this problem and has made efforts in the past to reduce the odour. The smell is at its worst in the spring months because that’s when the ice comes off, according to Troy Dunlop, Mississippi Mills director of public works. Among other things, both the director of public works and members of town council stressed that this issue of smell will be much less of a problem when the new treatment plant is operational. Most of the lagoons will be drained, and only one portion will be kept as a safety measure to prevent overflow.

David Somppi appointed to Champlain LHIN KATIE MULLIGAN

Sam Cooley / Canadian Gazette

The original 17-pounder Howitzer gun, which has been in Memorial Park since the 1960s, will be replaced with two C1-105mm Howitzer guns. GUNS from the front The legion approached the Department of National Defence in hopes of bringing a replacement to town since repairs would have been too costly, but were told no replacements were available. However, after attending a recent ceremony out of town, Goebel had the chance to speak with a Toronto legion member, who informed him that guns can be attained by speaking with the local member of parliament. “We received an email last week from the DND that our request had been fulfilled,” said Goebel. “And that the guns would be donated.” Goebel said MP Scott Reid did the work on behalf of the legion. The Carleton Place legion was informed that they would receive two C1-105mm Howitzers to replace the 17-pounder.

Council was approached on Sept. 28, only days before the Oct. 2 rededication to inform the town they had successfully tracked down a replacement for the worn-out gun. While the two guns, slightly smaller than the original gun, are being donated, the legion approached the town to help get them to Carleton Place. “We expect them to be available early in the new year,” said Goebel. The legion requested the town assist by creating two cement pads for the guns, which will be located on each side of the flag pole, as well as provide the funding to have the guns transported from Montreal to Carleton Place once they are available. “We would request that the two cement pads be installed prior to the winter so they are there for when we get the call,” said Goebel. “We don’t want to worry

about putting cement down in the middle of January.” Goebel said that Rev. Peter Dahlin of the Zion-Memorial United Church has noted in the past that the current gun is pointing directly at the church. The two new guns will sit on each side of the flag pole, pointing outwards on an angle, away from the church. The existing 17-pounder will remain local, said Goebel, and not end up in a scrap yard. “It is going to a local farm,” said Goebel. “We have (a Second World War) veteran who used a 17-pounder.” The gun will stay on the farm once the new guns arrive. Deputy Mayor Ed Sonnenburg moved a motion that council support the legion and leave it to them to work with the proper committee to go ahead and make the project happen.

CARLETON PLACE – David Somppi, a familiar face in the local health care scene, is hoping to share his experience and knowledge with an entire region after years in Carleton Place. Somppi, who was with the Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital board for eight years, as well as the more recent health village committee, was appointed to the Champlain Local Health Integration Network for a three-year term as of July. The appointed position with the Champlain LHIN, which Somppi said he applied for about a year ago, will be a new opportunity for the local health care volunteer. “It’s time to let somebody else come in,” said Somppi of his eight years with the hospital board. Through his experience at the local level, said Somppi, he has learned a lot. “And I continue to be passionate about publicly-funded health care and the importance of it,” he said. “As a member of the board of the LHIN, I will be responsible for the system in the Champlain region…that is my role.” Somppi said he is now responsible for the communities across the region, including but not limited to Lanark County. “I need to think of what is right for the LHIN,” he said. “There

are diverse needs…but we have a good group of people looking to optimally serve the Champlain area.” Once he knew he would be taking on a regional role, Somppi resigned from his local positions to avoid a conflict of interest. “My role is to try and make sure the individuals who have worked hard across the LHIN are empowered and have access to resources,” he said. “I need to do my best across the board.” Somppi said his experience and duties on the local boards will be consistent in his new role, only serving a larger area. “It’s a complex system” he said. “That system needs to adapt, improve and become more efficient and cost effective. All of those things we talk about at the local level is true in the system level.” Since appointed in the summer, Somppi has travelled across the large region of the LHIN. “We are always looking for the best practices, how to overcome challenges and come up with a better system for the future,” he said. Somppi said he is honoured to be appointed. “In the short time I have been there, I have seen a group of dedicated people who are working very hard,” he said. “I am looking forward to bringing my knowledge and skills to the table – to move forward and benefit everyone in the region.”

Redmond wants to see more boat moorings downtown DESMOND DEVOY

CARLETON PLACE – A candidate for Carleton Place town council would like to see more boat moorings near the downtown core to encourage more tourists to drop anchor and check out the town. “I don’t think we have enough mooring facilities downtown. We have three moorings and they are usually full,” said Sean Redmond. “We see a lot of boats come here but they can’t moor so they turn around and head back,” towards Mississippi Lake. “I don’t think we’re utilizing the river corridor as best we could,” Redmond added. “We’re going to have to invest money in the downtown core.” Redmond lives close to both the river and the downtown core, on Allan Street, and he made his decision to run while sitting along the banks of the river this past summer. “Darn it, I’m going to do it,” he said of his ‘eureka’ moment. “Everybody’s been after me to run for council.” While Redmond filed his papers on Sept. 10, the deadline to file, he made up his mind on Aug. 1 – before spending the next four weeks trying to talk himself

out of it, to no avail. “I planned to run in the next election in 2014,” he said, but changed his mind because he wanted to be part of the change he saw coming Carleton Place’s way. “The town of Carleton Place will go through some tremendous changes over the next few years with the completion of the highway,” he said. There will likely be three new councillors because Wendy Leblanc is seeking the mayor’s post, Dennis Burns is aiming for deputy mayor and Gerald Kirby is not running. “That was a grave concern for me,” Redmond said. The issues at the top of his priority list are taxes and fiscal responsibility. “I think that people in town are paying enough taxes. We need to find a way to relieve that residential tax burden,” said Redmond. However, he ruled out a complete tax freeze as a solution. “We can’t come up with a true tax freeze,” Redmond said, noting he wants to see any tax increases fall within the margins of the cost of living. Instead, he endorses annexing property from neighbouring municipalities in order to build up the tax base for new businesses.

“We need the jobs, the tax base and employment that comes with more businesses,” said Redmond. “I’m pro-growth, whether we want it or not. I have my arms wide open to it.” Redmond has worked at Bytown Lum-

ber as a contractor for the past two years, and at Rona for about 20 years before that. “I’m very familiar with the growth (of the town), with cost management,” said Redmond.

Two men charged in Barracks break in Two Carleton Place men have been charged with break and enter after police found two suspects stealing copper piping from the Old Barracks building. Around 12:30 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 1 an OPP officer was checking the building on Country Road 29 because there has been a number of reported incidents of vandalism and break and enters in the past. While there, the officer noticed a red pick up truck parked outside the building. Police say the officer then found two males removing copper pipes from the building. The men were arrested for break

and enter and, according to police, one of them initially provided a false identity to police. Steven Turgeon, 31, of Carleton Place is charged with break and enter and breach of probation. He has been released and is scheduled to appear at the Smiths Falls courthouse on Nov. 8. Robert Dupuis, 49, of Carleton Place is charged with break and enter and obstructing a peace officer. Dupuis was held for a bail hearing in Perth on Oct. 1. CANOE THEFT Carleton Place OPP are looking for those responsible for stealing a valuable

racing canoe from the Carleton Place Canoe Club. On Sept. 27 police received a report about a theft of racing canoe from the local club. The canoe, which is valued at $4,000, was the only boat removed from the building. It’s described as an 11foot green fibreglass racing canoe, with a white bottom. The word “Mazda” is written on the front and there is a chunk missing from the side of the boat. If anyone has any information they are asked to contact the Carleton Place OPP at 613-257-5610 / toll free at 1-888-310-1122 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800222-TIPS (8477).

Mayor Paul Dulmage adds his name to the ballot Incumbent opens campaign headquarters, plans a ‘meet the mayor’ night KATIE MULLIGAN

CARLETON PLACE – Mayor Paul Dulmage has his eye on a third term in his role. The mayor, who filed on the nomination deadline day, Sept. 10, is beginning his campaign for the Oct. 25 election. “I’m not finished what I started out to do,” said Dulmage about why he is running again. The four-laning of Highway 7 is an example of some of the unfinished business, as well as a potential bypass around the town. “Hopefully we’ll get some kind of outlet mall to get people to stop off the fourlane highway,” he said. Dulmage, who has lived in Carleton Place his entire life, also said the town is in need of a large hotel, hosting 100 rooms or more, as well as a fixed-seat theatre and/or a convention centre. “I worked on it last term,” he said. “We’re very close, but not finished yet… If someone doesn’t do it, I’ll build it myself.” The mayor said a new hotel with those features would be needed to house people in town for recreational or other town events.

“(Ask) any question you want of the mayor. Nothing is off limits.” • Mayor Paul Dulmage “We have the population to support it,” he said. Dulmage said annexation is also a big issue. “We have to annex land around the town (from Mississippi Mills and Beckwith Township) to create a buffer for development,” he said. Dulmage said preliminary talks about annexation took place earlier in the current term. “Since we were getting close to an election, nobody felt it would be prudent to proceed,” he said. “We’d be halfway through (annexation), then have a new council come in. It would be a first item, or certainly an early item for a new council.” Maintaining a high standard of quality of life and keeping taxes down is on the top of the list for Dulmage. “We haven’t seen much growth in the residential sector,” he said. “There is a lot of growth up against

our borders, but that is of no advantage to us.” Seeing more retail development on the north side of the river – anything from a gas station to dry cleaner, grocery store or other important business – is something the incumbent said he would like to see. “(Stores and services) so people don’t have to drive all the way to the other side of Carleton Place,” said Dulmage. “It seems all of the development is happening on the south east side.” Recreation, arts and culture have to be dealt with, said Dulmage, along with finding a way to promote town events more extensively. As his campaign continues, Dulmage said he is planning a “meet the mayor” night (to be arranged), which will give residents a chance to speak with him in person. “Any question you want of the mayor,” he said. “Nothing is off limits.” Dulmage has officially opened up his campaign headquarters at 126 Bridge St., and will send out flyers with more of his platform. “Mostly, my record itself is most important,” said the mayor. “I would consider it a very impressive record.” Dulmage outlined the capital purchas-

es, the employee changes, funding for specialty items and equipment and the “enhancement of nearly every department in our town hall, as well as every walk of life in the community,” which took place during his time over the past two terms. “I will not make a promise I can’t keep,” he said. “I have a vision…my flyer will cover that.”

Councillor looks to move up to deputy mayor role Dennis Burn hopes for a fourth term on council in a different seat KATIE MULLIGAN

CARLETON PLACE – Coun. Dennis Burn said after the 2006 municipal election, he threw out all of his election signs. That is because the councillor, who is just wrapping up his third term with Carleton Place, decided he was going to run for deputy mayor in the 2010 election. “In politics, you need turnover and fresh blood,� he said of his decision to

Dr Paul Sly

run for the position. Burn said he makes decisions based on the issue and the issue alone. “I have been a businessman for 20 years,� he said. “Is this (issue) financially reliable? Is it sustainable? Those are the things I look at, and not just if it’s a nice idea.� Over the next term, said Burn, the town is heading into a “time of potential.� The highway expansion will bring residential growth. “We already have everything (commer-

cial) we need,â€? he said of that growth. “In fact, we probably have too much.â€? Burn said the pros and cons of annexation need to be discussed and weighed, as well as controlled growth. “We have a great small town atmosphere,â€? said Burn. “When you go downtown, you can end up waving to 10 people you know as you go‌I want to protect that.â€? Ethics and accountability are on the top of Burn’s list of important issues to address in the near future, as well as over time. “We are elected by the people of this town, paid by taxation,â€? he said. “We need to be held accountable if we are acting inappropriately in any way.â€? Burn also wants to see controlled spending to aim to keep taxes as low as possible. While he doesn’t believe a tax freeze is doable because of inflation and the amount of money spent on road repair, it is important to aim as low as possible without cutting out services. “But we do need to set a limit as times

are getting tougher,� he said. Burn said, if elected, he feels easing into the role of deputy mayor, which would include Lanark County council duties, will be natural to him after his years on council and getting to know the community through his catering business. “That is the neat thing about small towns,� he said. “Everyone is connected.� Burn said his campaign team is made up of his family, who is helping him getting his brochures out in the town. The deputy mayor hopeful said he has been going door to door as the election ramps up to speak to as many people as possible.

Former councillor hopes voters will seek to be back in Black DESMOND DEVOY

Melissa Di Costanzo / Canadian Gazette

OVER THE NET Smiths Falls and District Collegiate Institute hosted Notre Dame Catholic High School on the volleyball court on Sept. 30, where the Carleton Place team won over SFDCI 3-1.

CARLETON PLACE – Doug Black is hoping that voters will want to see Black back on council. The long-time resident served two terms as a councillor on Carleton Place town council from 1980 to 1985. “I enjoyed it very much. Life was very hectic. I was travelling extensively, coaching, raising two kids,” he said. “I felt I made a contribution.” Even though much has changed in the 25 years since he last sat at the council table, he said he can “hit the ground running.” Black was involved with the Carleton Place Canoe Club, and was an advocate for the town’s day care centre. He is also proud of his work writing the town’s first bylaw dealing with handicapped parking, banning dumping road snow into the Mississippi River, and establishing the first residential tree planting program. For the past 30 years, Black served as an account executive in the telecommunications industry. About 20 of those years were spent at Nortel, working in the national Interac network, working his way up to be recognized five times as one of the company’s top managers in North America.

Black said he believes that his business experience will help him in his efforts to bring new business to the town, should he be elected. “I would welcome the mayor’s request (of) selling Carleton Place to investors in a professional and competent manner,” said Black. “Without question, growth is imperative. You cannot stagnate.” While he does not advocate for a municipal tax freeze, he would like to see that any necessary tax increases are not beyond the level of the cost of living. “(I want council to be) cognizant of the impact your decisions have on the tax base, particularly those who are on a fixed income or retired,” said Black, who is retired. If elected, he wants to see a post-mortem carried out on the unsuccessful bid for affordable seniors housing, and a closer

look at the merits of a new location for the youth centre, possibly located within a seniors centre. “There is a perception that this council is spending a lot of money and they question the due diligence,” said Black. Another issue he would like to tackle is E. coli levels in the Mississippi River. “I’d like to discover the cause of the E. coli and what can be done to eliminate it,” he said, putting forward the theory that geese droppings may have a part to play. Black filed his nomination papers two days before the Sept. 10 deadline, but had been considering a run since April. Black may be forgiven for having his attention diverted a little bit two days before the election though, when his son gets married. “There’s a lot going on,” Black said.

Election signs continue to take a hit across the region CANADIAN GAZETTE LANARK COUNTY – As election season rolls on, election signs continue to be a target for vandals in the area. Lanark County OPP has received a number of reports of theft and damage to signs in communities throughout the county. It is a criminal offence to take, alter or damage any election sign. Anyone who tampers with a sign can be charged with mischief while removing a sign can result in being charged with theft. “The theft of political candidates signs is a serious offence and a conviction could lead to time spent in jail,” said Detachment Cmdr. Insp. Gerry Salisbury. “I encourage anyone who witnesses a theft of these signs to contact the OPP immediately” This trend is continuing throughout Lanark County, as well as in the City of Ottawa. Candidates in Kanata, for example, have complained to Ottawa police about signs continually disappearing. Anyone with information regarding missing or damaged signs, or witnesses an act of vandalism or mischief is asked to contact police at 1-888-310-1122 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

Cenotaph rededicated to the memory of the fallen DESMOND DEVOY

CARLETON PLACE – After months of hard work, planning, and a big-gun salute, the Memorial Park cenotaph has been rededicated, re-affirming the town’s commitment to remember the fallen. “(This is) a very, very important ceremony that will no doubt go down in the history of Carleton Place,” said Ron Goebel, an executive member of the Carleton Place Royal Canadian Legion branch 192, during the ceremony at Memorial Park on Oct. 2. “It is not enough for us to remember.” He added that he wanted the rededication ceremony to help “ensure that their sacrifice is never forgotten, that Memorial Park remains sacred ground.” The original cenotaph was built in 1924, bearing the names of the 47 Carleton Place men who died during the First World War, from 1914 to 1918. The cenotaph was expanded and renovated in 1960 to include the names of men who served during the Second World War and the Korean War. “Our cenotaph has served us well,” said Goebel. He added that there will be additional landscaping around the cenotaph this coming spring, and that two new CI-105 millimetre Howitzer guns will be set up in the park early next year, to replace the old Howitzer that currently guards the site. Many local dignitaries were

on hand during the ceremony to show their respect. “I often get emotional when talking about veterans,” said Carleton Place Mayor Paul Dulmage. He welcomed the soldiers from Canadian Forces Base Petawawa who were on the scene, and indicated he hoped future generations show the same respect to our veterans. Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox and Addington MP Scott Reid said he was glad to be in Carleton Place to see the new cenotaph, since he does not always get to spend his Remembrance Days in the town with 16 cenotaphs in the riding. “Our veterans are a vanishing resource,” he said, noting that all of Canada’s First World War veterans are dead, and that the Second World War veterans are starting to pass on. “These were the heroes not only of Canada but of civilization,” he said of the Canadian soldiers of the 1939 conflict. MPP Randy Hillier was also on hand to show his respect at a place that “holds a special place in my heart.” That’s partly because his son is currently serving with the 3rd Battalion of the Princess Patricia’s Light Infantry in Shiloh, Manitoba., Hillier indicated. He expressed his undying gratitude to veterans, nothing that when the call to arms came, “Carleton Place and rural Canada answered the call of duty.”

The ceremony was rich in history, not only of Canada’s military past, but also with echoes of the remembrance traditions of tribes and clans from centuries past. Before the rededication ceremony, members of the colour party marched from Carleton Place town hall to Memorial Park. Many of the participants had their own reasons for marching to the park, either because of their own service, or to remember those who had done their part to protect this country. “It’s another little bit of remembrance. Every little bit helps,” said Carleton Place resident Cleeve Thorpe, who helped unveil the new “Veterans Way” signs at the intersection of Beckwith and Franklin streets. Thorpe has been a member of the Legion for the past 65 years, having served as an Able Seaman with the Royal Canadian Naval Service from 1943 to 1946, seeing duty in the south Pacific and Hong Kong. Meanwhile, Paul Wilson Costello, who carried the Canadian flag during the parade as part of the colour party, was proud to be taking part partially in memory of his uncle, who died fighting in France in July of 1944. “I never got to know the man. I have his photo at home,” said Costello. He made a copy of his uncle’s photo, which is now in a place of pride at the Carleton Place legion.

How to turn your needs into goals

Youth nights return to Almonte


When it comes to money, everybody’s objectives are different. By paying close attention to what you need and want from your finances and investments, you’ll have a better chance of getting ahead in your financial life. It’s important to differentiate between needs and goals. This will help you allocate income to the areas of your finances that require immediate attention, as well as plan and invest for the longterm. To put both needs and goals into focus, try thinking of your financial life as a pyramid. This will allow you to establish a hierarchy of financial needs, and help you develop a logical, systematic approach to formulating and meeting your goals. At the base of the pyramid are your foundation needs. They form the foundation because they’re related to financial security. These are everyday items to which you must devote part of your income-including shelter, food, clothing, health care, taxes and other daily living items. Other necessities that should be considered part of the foundation include insurance and a cash fund for emergencies. Adequate life, disability, critical illness and long-term care insurance are essential to your and your family’s financial health. Proper insurance coverage means you and your family won’t experience financial hardship if you can’t work because of a serious health problem, or if you die.

money is involved and how much time you require to meet that need. You must determine the level of annual income you’ll require in retirement, as well as other financial commitments. For example, if you plan to buy a home in the southern United States and retire as a snowbird, you’ll need money to buy the house, as well as regular income for living expenses. When you know how much money is necessary, you must determine how much wealth you’ll have to accumulate. Then you can calculate what you should save and invest every year from now until retirement age, and the level of investment returns you’ll require. It works the same way for other long-term goals. When are your children going to attend university or college, and how much will it cost? Then you can determine how much to save and invest from now until then. A financial professional can help you assess your needs and work out your goals. With financial help you can establish a savings and investment plan that will ensure your financial objectives are reached.

Member Canadian Investor Protection Fund 418795


Higher in the pyramid are lifestyle needs. Once the foundation is in place, you can focus on these longer-term requirements. Lifestyle needs can include paying down the mortgage, saving for your children’s education, retirement savings, money for vacations and travel, buying a second home and even building an estate to leave to your heirs or charity. Whatever your needs, it’s important that they be clearly defined. Once your needs are established, it’s time to establish goals. You transform needs into goals by assigning specific dollar amounts and time horizons. Once your goals are in place, you can devise a savings and investment strategy for reaching them.

In one hour, you’ll learn more about how to invest for retirement and get the most from the choices you make. Because while retirement may seem far off, it gets a little closer every day.

Student reporter

ALMONTE – Starting mid-October, youth in Mississippi Mills will have an opportunity to take part in weekly activities every Friday night until spring. The program, known as Youth Night, is in its third year. “We’re based out of the Almonte high school,” said Calvin Murphy, Town of Mississippi Mills recreation coordinator. “We use their gym primarily. We have all different kinds of activities. Sometimes we have sports nights, or arts and crafts.” Murphy said that in the past there have been outings to different places such as the bowling alley in Carleton Place, seeing the latest Hollywood movies at the cinema, or Laser Quest on St. Laurent Boulevard in Ottawa. The program runs every Friday night from Oct. 15 to the end of April.

“We gear it mostly towards a mix between 10- to 15-year-olds, but as for the activities we’re going to see how many we get out,” said Murphy. The program is sponsored and funded by the town. Some costs are recovered by the sale of snack food at the events. While it is free to attend Youth Night, but there is the option to purchase food. Youth Night has been extremely successful in the past. Murphy explained that interest in the programming has been increasing over the years. “The first year a little more than 10 showed up to Youth Night, and now the average is more around 40 to 50,” he said. “We are trying to give youth in the area some choices for things to do on weekends,” Murphy continued. “We’re giving them the option to go out on Friday nights and have some fun.”

Attracting the youth vote a tough sell SAM COOLEY

graduate Stephanie Langelier dryly stated that she just doesn’t care enough. Mike Blackburn, 18, lives in Almonte and said that he isn’t interested in local politics either. “I don’t see the point, and who cares about my view on politics,” he said. “Sure it (my vote) is just as powerful, but nothing is giving me any motivation to get up and fill out a ballot for somebody else.” Ottawa University student Kelly Hollington, who is a recent graduate of Almonte and District High School, said she doesn’t know where to find information on candidates. “I don’t really know much about local politics,” she said. “I got a letter from one of the people running for mayor but I have no idea about it. There isn’t much information out there.” She paused and added, “Well, there probably is information out there, I just don’t really know

On the day of a teenager’s 18th birthday, he or she has the very same voting strength as a 38year-old political activist, however, youth don’t seem nearly as interested in the political process. Recent graduates from local high schools have a variety of opinions on local politics. A lot of youth are uninformed about municipal politics, as well as the candidates running for council in the upcoming election. Time and time again during federal, provincial and municipal elections, politicians express the importance of today’s youth, but are youth around to hear it? Michèle Frennette, 18, of Carleton Place mentioned that she has no interest in voting. “I don’t know enough to want to be involved,” Frenette said. “I don’t care enough to figure it out.” When asked about her interest in the upcomSam Cooley / Canadian Gazette ing local election, New Carleton Place voter Conrad Smith, 18, is urging candidates for Almonte and Distown council to consider and involve youth when they are making their trict High School decisions.

where.” Carleton Place resident Conrad Smith, 18, graduated high school in late June and is now taking business administration at Algonquin College. He said he understands why youth aren’t interested in politics. “It’s because youth aren’t targeted when it comes to voting,” he said. “If local politics got our age group involved then more of us (younger voters) would be interested.” Smith, who mentioned that he knows of the local councillors, indicated perception is also important. “A lot of our age group think that their vote won’t matter anyway,” he said. “But they’re wrong.” Smith also had a note of caution to pass on to candidates. “If politicians don’t include youth in today’s voting, why should they be interested or even care when they are older and targeted in the future?” he said.

Local theatre troupe to stage Nunsense: The Mega-Musical DORIS OHLMANN Mississippi Mudds

If you’re familiar with the toe-tapping, risqué lyrics and off-the-wall humour of the off-Broadway production of Nunsense by Dan Goggin, be forewarned, NunSense: The Mega-Musical is not quite the same. Oh yes, many of the characters are the same, the songs are the same, the hilarious script is the same and there’s even the same ridiculous plot, however NunSense: The Mega-Musical is so much more. In addition to the original cast of five nuns, this mega version includes five new characters; the never-before-seen infamous convent cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, as well as a large chorus of men, women and teens. Two expanded dance numbers have been added, including a new song, One Last Hope, as well as two numbers from Grease performed by the teenage cast members. This expanded cast of nuns is sure to promise more fun. This musical spoof features the misadventures of the Sisters of Hoboken convent. It all starts when Sister Julia serves vichyssoise to the Order and most of the nuns die from botulism. Of course, following this catastrophe the dearly departed must be buried and sent to their final resting place. However, the shenanigans begin when the nuns discover there isn’t enough money left to bury all the nuns. There’s four left resting – in the freezer. The nuns have decided to raise the money for the remaining caskets by stag-

ing a variety show. The students of the Order are currently using Mount Saint Helen’s School Auditorium to present their production of Grease, however it is quickly adapted so the nuns can perform their own wacky and wonderful songs and dances. With familiar tunes from the first show such as Nunsense Is Habit-Forming, Tackle that Temptation with a Time-Step and We’ve Got to Clean Out the Freezer, there’s no telling what antics and tomfoolery these nuns will come up with. Directed by Sandra Dunlop, who also directed the Mississippi Mudds performance of the musical Anything Goes in May 2008, this production will offer the full choral sound the Mississippi Mudds have become known for in the area. With local pianist and bandleader Peter Brown and a three-person band, and musical director Kristine MacLaren, it’s sure to be a show you don’t want to miss. NunSense: The Mega-Musical will be staged just in time to get you thinking about Christmas. During the first two weekends in December, be prepared to be entertained by a group of energetic vocalists, dancers and actors who will have you questioning any preconceived notions you may have about nuns. Show dates are Dec. 3, 4, 9, 10 and 11 at 8 p.m. with a matinee Dec. 5 at 2 p.m. Tickets are available starting Oct. 22 at Arts Carleton Place, 132 Coleman St. Call 613257-2031 or check out mississippimudds. ca for more information. Doris Ohlmann is a member of the Mississippi Mudds Publicity Team.

CPHS student to compete at national poetry slam in Ottawa


The passion of the piece moved the judges to place her in the number one spot in the competition. Now she will lead a five-person squad to the nationals. Kwissa has also been selected by festival organizers to be a “blogger” for the youth showcase and workshops that will be taking place at the festival. The team is currently developing new performance pieces for the nationals. While the pieces are to be kept secret until their debut at the national slam, Kwissa says that topics selected include anger and famine as well as a lighter, humorous piece about technology.


THE VARIETY I ENJOY Every day is different, and the many opportunities for enjoyment make life more fulfilling.

Art aficionados or those just looking for a fall weekend getaway are invited to take part in the annual Crown & Pumpkin Studio Tour. At the start of autumn lower temperatures and the shortening of days bring a new palette to the world. Visually, one notices an abundance of colours that are not seen during the summer months. Green leaves change to different shades of gold, brown and red. Depending on the species, tree branches become bare, their bent and twisted shapes growing more noticeable. On the weekend of Thanksgiving, when the harvest is celebrated, there is an opportunity for residents to discover local art in Mississippi Mills at a variety of locations while also taking in the beautiful fall atmosphere. “Discover the quality craftsmanship and skill of local artists amidst the vibrant colours that define our fall season,” the Crown & Pumpkin artists boldly declare. The Crown & Pumpkin Studio Tour takes place Oct. 9-11 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and includes

artist’s from Almonte, Blakeney, Middleville and Clayton. Visitors are free to enter and tour locations at their leisure – admission is free. “There will be directional signs all over the area, directing guests to the 12 different stops,” says Jim Mountain, a long-time member of the organization. Mountain explains the Crown & Pumpkin symbol of the tour is a derivative of the old Ramsay town logo. While maintaining old heritage elements, the tour is never the same two years in a row. “The artists will be there and will have the ability to speak to the guest… much different than just an art gallery,” says Mountain.

She has proven, though, that she can compete on that stage. Last year she was part of a Lanark County team that placed eighth overall at the festival, but her performance of a poem called Love Letter to the Human Race temporarily moved her team from last to second place following her “bout” or performance of the poem. This year in the Lanark competition she recited an original poem called My Love, performing it in two parts. Part one, entitled How have I loved you, is all about the joyful experience of deep love when it is passionate. The first part was inspired by a personal experience. Part two, called, This is Your Poem Now, is about the awkward feelings that follow when things no longer fit. In part one; she speaks passionately about the feeling of adrenaline when things are sailing along in a relationship. That feeling fades with part two when both people in the relationship recognize it “isn’t what it was anymore.”



CARLETON PLACE – She’s pensive and disarmingly serene. But when Emily Kwissa takes the stage at a poetry slam, she can throw down words like a Ninja throws stars spitting fury as she rails about everything from love lost to the fires of family conflict. Her words can also be inspirational and uplifting – that is the power of her voice. For the third time in as many years, the 17-year-old Carleton Place High School student has used her talents to qualify for the Canadian Festival of the Spoken Word – the Stanley Cup of poetry slams which will take place Oct. 12-16 in Ottawa. The Grade 12 student qualified after placing first overall in the finals of the Lanark County Live Poets Society slam this past summer. Despite it being her third time qualifying for the nationals, she admits to feeling a little daunted. “It’s very unnerving being up on the stage competing against some amazing poets,” she said.

Carleton Place opera singer nominated for Hollywood award DESMOND DEVOY

CARLETON PLACE – Carleton Place-based opera singer Giselle Minns will be making her way down the red carpet in Hollywood next week, hopefully to accept an award. No, Hollywood’s awards season has not come early, nor will she be going home with an Oscar that night. But the British-born singer, who called Constance Bay home for five years until this past June, is instead nominated for Best Female Vocalist at the Los Angeles Independent Music Awards.

“It is fantastic to be recognized by the music industry,” said Minns. She has been nominated for her 2008 album Turning Circles. “It’s not opera at all,” Minns said of her album. “I decided that I wanted to write my own stuff.” The result was a merging of contemporary electronic music with her classically-trained voice and strings, a format she has dubbed classical electronica. “I used my computer and I wrote everything in full score,” she said, with her husband helping out with producing.

This is not the first time that Minns has been nominated by the same body. In 2008, she was nominated for some music work she had done, and she found herself in Hollywood. She said she loved the experience and totally indulged in the tourist allure of Tinsel Town, even seeing the handprints on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. When she and her husband went to check in at their hotel, they were asked to wait a few minutes in the bar while the finishing touches were put on their room. They went to the bar, and Minns had a fan-freak-out moment. “I was not cool,” she admitted sheepishly. “I was like, ‘Oh, look, there’s Colin Farrell!’” Minns has performed as an

opera singer all over Europe, alongside the likes of such musical luminaries like Spanish tenor Jose Carreras of The Three Tenors. She has also lived in Italy and France, where she was a singer in residence at the opera house in Strasbourg, near the German border. She even performed at the European Parliament. Minns has been playing the piano since she was five years old, while adding cello and singing to her repertoire in time. “I love the drama and the stories (of opera),” she said, falling in love with the music and life of Greek-American opera singer Maria Callas (1923-1977). Minns moved to Canada because she wanted to do something completely differ-

ent and change continents. “I just fell in love with the big skies and lakes,” of eastern Ontario, she recalled. “Going up to Gatineau Park blew me away.” When she is not working on her new album, due out in about a year-and-a-half, she teaches singing at the Main Street School of Music in Arnprior and the Kanata Music Academy. Her new album is aimed to be complete in the New Age style, following on a positive comment she received from a critic of her last album, which she calls a “a cross between Enya and Sarah Brightman.” She is taking her time with her new album, working with local musicians, because she wants to get it right.

Carleton Place student tears up the track CANADIAN GAZETTE Shane Billings, a Grade 9 student at Notre Dame Catholic High School, had an exciting summer on the track. It was his first year in DIRT (Driver’s Independent Race Track) Go-Kart Racing at Brockville Ontario Speedway (BOS). Billings has wanted to race all his life, and why wouldn’t he with a long line of DIRT track race car drivers in his family? His grandfather, Denzil Billings Sr., has been racing for six decades and was track champion for many of those years. His father Paul Billings, many uncles and cousins have OFFICE

613-623-7922 Enright Real Estate Brokerage INDEPENDENTLY OWNED AND OPERATED

also been involved in racing, including Matt Billings, his 17-year-old cousin who was named track champion and 2009 Sports person of the year in Brockville. In August 2009, Billings couldn’t take the suspense any longer and started researching what he would need to start racing go-karts on the dirt track. By January 2010, he had purchased a gokart with his money. As the winter dragged on for Billings, who couldn’t wait to start racing, he soon realized that more was needed than just a gokart and motor. He needed tools, a trailer, a racing suit, helmet, protective equipment and much more. Billings, along with his mom, Tracy Page, created a marketing proposal to send to local business’ who would hopefully want to advertise their

name on the enclosed trailer that Tracy purchased. “I wouldn’t have been able to race this year if it wasn’t for those who believed in me,” said Billings. “I can’t thank them enough. Hopefully they will continue their support in 2010” He also thanked his friends who were part of the pit crew and who helped him during race nights, especially Mitchell Erhke who was there almost every week. Billings finished third and fourth in many races, but always in the top eight. He finished eighth in points overall, which is a strong standing considering he had a fractured growth plate with a partial cast for part of the summer. “I’m so proud of Billings. He has persevered through people saying he couldn’t do it, but he did with his determination and love for the sport,” said his mom, Page, adding with a laugh that she’s just his taxi and pit crew. Billings will be celebrating his first race season with a year end banquet being held on Oct. 30 in Brockville. “I already have plans to race next year and with moving up a division, I want to be the winning team,” he said. “I’m going to have the motor rebuilt over the winter months but again, I can’t be competitive without the support” from friends and sponsors.

Community Support group emerges for Parkinson’s patients CHARLES LAWRENCE On Sept. 27 a recently established Parkinson’s Disease support program started its fall season. This is one of a very wide variety of local Almonte home support activities organized, carried out and funded under the umbrella of Mills Community Support Corporation. Almonte Home Support focused some months ago on the need for a group setting where

local citizens (personally diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease) can meet. The purpose is to offer a group environment to

exchange information, where pharmaceutical and medical experts can also share experiences and viewpoints on what, to date,

is an incurable and debilitating disease. Encouragement and invitation to attend this program is also extended to family members whose caregiving includes those afflicted with Parkinsons. Working with the Almonte Home Support administrators is facilitator Elizabeth Veninga, who has worked in other fields of chronic illnesses. She led this recent evening meeting of the Parkinson’s support group, which had the privi-

There were l 3 people present, not including Veninga and Home Support administrators Lwanda Brown and Jeff Mills. This Parkinson’s support group meets from 7 to 9 p.m. on the last Monday of the month. For more information about this and other programs, call Home Support at 613-256-4700.

TO THE STAFF AT THE CARLETON PLACE HOSPITAL Have you ever had a loved one visit the Carleton Place Hospital? We have. From May to September, our son/ brother was a patient there and recently passed away. We were very impressed with the level of care from the nurses and doctors. Words cannot describe the compassion they gave while treating him with respect. As a family member, it was comforting to know he was well cared for, and the thoughtful words and kindheartedness were so appreciated. Thanks especially to Drs. Jamie and Lisa Fullerton. There is too many staff to thank individually, but know you hold a special place in our hearts. You will not be forgotten for all you have done. Thank you. Sincerely, the Merkley Family.

This all sounds great, but how does it actually work. WBV machines cause a rapid, involuntary contraction and then, expansion of muscle cells. This rapid repetitive movement occurs at the cellular level and is proven to build muscle strength and new bone cells. It also burns fat, and is a great method of detoxification and lymphatic drainage. The motion generated by WBV therapy enhances the natural regenerative processes in our body. Remember isometric exercises? You focus on a muscle and tighten

it, then release the muscle. Tighten, then release. You do this over and over again. This is a description of the involuntary muscle movement induced by Whole Body Vibration machines. Simply put: If you do one regular squat, you did one squat. If you do one squat on a vibration machine you will do up to 50 squats in the same time. Vibration Therapy works by pulling and tensing the muscle the same as regular exercise but in very small amounts and very quickly. Your muscles can’t tell the difference between the regular squat and the vibration squat, other than the vibration squat was done 50 times more. So now you can see how you really can do a full body workout in 10 minutes and best of all you won’t sweat and you won’t be sore afterwards. It doesn’t get better than that! Our WBV machines at Spice Wellness Systems use low-speed, low-amplitude vibrations to generate health benefits. We offer our clients the chance to come in and try 3 sessions on the machine for free. This gives you a chance to actually see what the machines can do for you and I can tell you that most people feel a difference after just one session. We have been open for 2 months now and already we have clients that are experiencing the wellness benefits we are promoting; inches loss, reduction in joint, knee, hip, back pain (some for the first time in years), increased bladder control, increased circulation, better sleep, increased energy and the list goes on. Can it help you!!!!!


Whole Body Vibration (WBV) is an extremely effective workout program for everyday people. You may have never heard of it, but it has actually been around since the 1960`s. Russian scientists in the Space program started to experiment with vibration exercise technology, to help with the bone/muscle loss that being in space caused and found that by using this equipment they could not only stop the loss, but amazingly increase bone density, strengthen muscle tissue and much more. The success of vibration therapy in the space programs caught the attention of the medical community, and scientists began investigating the effect of safe, low-speed vibration on various medical conditions. Currently there have been hundreds of clinical trials performed in North America and Europe using WBV, scientists are documenting positive changes in bone density, cerebral palsy, Parkinson’s disease, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, emphysema, stroke recovery, varicose veins, circulation and joint problems.

Subway Athlete of the Month KATIE MULLIGAN

CARLETON PLACE –Sydney Low is described as a hard worker and a team player. These qualities are some of many reasons the Notre Dame Catholic High School student has been nominated as the Subway Athlete of the Month in Carleton Place. Grade 12 student Sydney began running in Grade 3, before she was old enough to join the track and field team. “I started running along with the team,” she said “My brother was on it so I wanted to go, too.” Sydney was able to later join the team at Holy Name of Mary School in Almonte. She continued running when she reached high school and has pushed further and further each year. “Sydney has been working very hard since she got here in Grade 9,” said track and field and cross country running coach Erika Clow-Hawkins. Clow-Hawkins said Sydney is the type of athlete who will pursue training on her own. If she misses practice because of another commitment, such as the two bands she is a part of, she will find out what the team worked on

and train on her own to catch up. Clow-Hawkins said the athlete of the month has also stepped up to run practice in the event a coach is unavailable to do so. “She has given a lot,” she said. “She is a great mentor for the younger runners.” Clow-Hawkins said Sydney is more than deserving of being recognized for her talents and achievements. Glen Cordick, who has been Sydney’s coach and science teacher, said she is not only an extremely capable student, but also hard working. “She has a keen interest in her courses,” he said. Cordick said when it comes to running, the young runner has a “natural stride” and is constantly pushing herself to improve each day. “She is a great all-around team mate,” he said. “And a team player.” Each month, the Canadian Gazette will recognize a Subway Athlete of Month, nominated by their teachers and coaches. To honour her for her achievements, Sean Bai of Subway in Carleton Place (with locations at 124 Coleman St. and 525 McNeely Ave.) will present the young athlete with Grade 12 student Sydney Low of Notre Dame Catholic High School a Subway Meal Deal. is the first Subway Athlete of the Month of the school year.

Members of the Almonte General Hospital/Fairview Manor (AGH/FVM) Foundation are often asked: “You raised the money you needed for the Hospital/ Manor redevelopment project; why are you still asking for donations?” “The answer is that while the capital campaign is indeed over, the needs of the Hospital and the community continue,” says Foundation Executive Director Gerry Huddleston. “Now that we have a modern facility, we must ensure that it has up-to-date equipment, in order to replace aging equipment and to take advantage of new technology.” AGH/FVM currently requires more than $1.1 million over the next three years to purchase much-needed equipment. Thanks to several generous donations, the Foundation was recently able to purchase an $89,000 Cardiac Telemetry System (CTS). The CTS allows cardiac

in-patients to be remotely monitored, meaning doctors and nurses can view electrocardiogram (ECG) results on a monitor at the nurses’ station. The Foundation’s current goal is to raise $200,000 for an autoclave, which is used to sterilize surgical instruments. A new autoclave would replace older equipment and would more easily handle the growing number of surgeries taking place at AGH. “Patient safety is a top priority at AGH, thanks to the efforts of our outstanding medical and housekeeping staff,” said Mr. Huddleston. “State-of-

the-art autoclave equipment will ensure we continue to meet the highest standards of hygiene and patient safety.” Other items on the equipment list include defibrillators, fetal heart monitors, medication carts, electric beds and several pieces of lab equipment. “At some point, you and your family, friends and neighbours are going to use the Hospital,” Mr. Huddleston said. “Supporting the Almonte General Hospital Fairview Manor Foundation is an investment in your community hospital and in the equipment it needs to continue to provide high-quality health care, close to home.” For more information on how to support the campaign to raise funds for equipment for the Almonte General Hospital and Fairview Manor, please contact AGH/FVM Foundation Executive Director Gerry Huddleston at 613-256-2514, extension 2297 or send an email to 405770


The provincial government recently announced that Regional Tourism Organization 11 (RTO-11) is set to receive $1.75 million over the next two-years. These funds are part of a larger $40 million province-wide investment in tourism divided proportionally among the province’s 13 newly formed RTOs. Region 11 is comprised of eight existing Destination Marketing Organizations (DMOs), tourism agencies and authorities,. RTO-11 was created in response to the Ministry of Tourism’s 2009 Tourism Competitiveness Study, which recommends dividing the province into tourism regions. During the past few months, RTO-11’s Transition Board has been working towards developing a strategic plan for the organization so the funds can be put to the best use possible. “To date, tourism development in our

A bird-lovers paradise at Ornithologists convention Late September still has summer birds with us. On Mississippi Lake, Peter Elliott had a green heron perched on his dock. Over on Cemetery Sideroad, Shaun Oakley observed eight to 10 chukars feeding. Both sightings are in Beckwith Township. I had a wonderful time attending the Ontario Field Ornithologists annual convention at Long Point and Port Dover, Sept. 25-26. First outing was of Old Cut and Long Point Provincial Park. Our group tallied 51 species, which included nine warbler species, all in their fall feathers. The blackpoll warbler looks very different in fall, pale greenish yellow below with dusky streaking on the sides. Males in spring have black cap, white underparts, with

back and sides boldly streaked with white. Great views of a soaring bald eagle, merlin, sharp-shinned and redtailed hawks. After lunch, we birded the Long Point area. Gray-cheeked and Swainson’s thrush’s were a delight, plus two sandhill cranes flying over. At Bird Studies Canada’s site, a large flock of American coots floated by shore, while across the road a cattle egret perched on the fence by a pond. Sunday, Turkey Point hotspots and Jarvis sewage lagoons beckoned. Walking by the tall rushes towards shore, a sedge wren kept popping up and down, making it difficult to see. On the shore, a short-billed dowitcher drew everyone’s attention. Lesser yel-

lowlegs made a nice contrast. Entering the Jarvis lagoon area, a rusty blackbird sat at the top of a short tree. Rusty head and yellow eye stood out. However, on a sand bar within cell number 1, three species sat for excellent views. Left: a Baird’s sandpiper, next two pectoral sandpipers, then two American pipits on the right. Wow! Pine, palm, Cape May, and yellowrumped warblers flitted quickly from tree to tree. Looking up, suddenly a peregrine falcon flew overhead. And a ruby-throated hummingbird darted by us. Happy birders headed for home. Please call Lynda at 613-256-5013, or email, with bird reports.

Day hospice will start in 2011 LAURA MUELLER

When calendars turn over for the new year, Lanark County will finally be home to a day-hospice program. Dignity House Hospice, which will serve all of Lanark County, will open the doors to its day hospice program at Carolina Retirement Suites in Perth on Wednesday, Jan. 19, 2011. It will allow between four and six people who have been deemed palliative to spend time with others who are going through a similar experience as they approach the end of life. The free program will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. each Wednesday, and offer a chance for participants to discuss the issues that become relevant when a person is dying, from pain management and psychological issues to food preparation and eating at the end of life. Food will be provided during the sessions, and music, games, puzzles and activities will be available; however, participants are welcome to opt out of the activities and use the time and space for quiet reflection. A registered nurse will be on hand during the sessions. The nurse will perform a quick assessment of each participant to monitor their condition and provide supplementary updates to the participants’ doctors. “It’s so much more than just a bunch of people sitting around chatting,” said

“Everyone has a right to die with dignity. It doesn’t have to be complicated. It doesn’t need piles of rules, regulations and medical equipment.” Anna Scanlon Alanna Scanlon, a Perth resident and registered nurse who is co-ordinating the day-hospice program. “It also provides an opportunity for the informal caregivers to catch their breath,” Scanlon said. There will be at least one volunteer per two participants in the day-hospice program and transportation will be available to bring participants to Carolina Suites. Participants must be independent and able to function in daily life, including taking their medications. For full application criteria and more information about Dignity House Hospice, see www. RESIDENTIAL HOSPICE ON THE HORIZON Members of the Dignity House board came back energized after a recent trip to view an example of a rural residential hospice in Bancroft, Ont. The Hospice House for North Hastings in Bancroft is a model for what the local

group hopes Dignity House will look like in Perth. The home-like environment would provide a comfortable and supportive place for people to spend the end of their lives. A residential hospice would take part of the burden off hospitals by providing those who do not require medical intervention to die in a more comfortable setting, where both the patient and their family have access to supportive resources, Scanlon said. “Everyone has a right to die with dignity,” Scanlon said. “It doesn’t have to be complicated,” she said. “It doesn’t need piles of rules, regulations and medical equipment.” The residential hospice would also have space for visiting family members to stay, as well as a kitchen and other resources available. Dignity House has already been approached by several individuals regarding possible locations (mainly in the Perth area) for the residential hospice. FUNDS NEEDED Dignity House’s board says it is now or never if residents of Lanark County would like to see a residential hospice in the community. “Please speak with your dollars,” Scanlon said, encouraging people who support a residential hospice to consider donating to the cause. Dignity House is a

If each household in Lanark County gave $2 towards the residential hospice initiative, Dignity House would have enough money to open the hospice and keep it running with four beds for one year, the group said. To celebrate World Hospice Day, Dignity House will have a booth at the Perth Farmers’ market on Saturday, Oct. 9 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., where visitors can find information about hospices. The group will also be selling used books and other items as a fundraiser. A gala banquet is being planned as a fundraiser in the new year. In Bancroft, volunteers managed to raise $200,000 from the community of 3,500 people in just four months. While the Perth-based group doesn’t expect to replicate quite that level of success, Dignity House is hoping to raise $300,000 by December of 2011.

YARD OF THE WEEK Brian and Marilyn Kealey have gardened at their 101 Patterson Cres. home for eight years and have created a lovely small front yard which is enjoyed by everyone who sees it. Marilyn’s favourite accent in the garden is an old stump and neighbourhood children enjoy looking for the rabbit statue that lives there. Carleton Place on Bloom’s Yard of the Week for 2010 is nearing the end of its season. Many thanks to the local businesses who supported the project by donating gifts for the Yard of the Week gardeners, and to the Canadian Gazette for carrying the feature.
