CARLETON PLACE – A local graduate student is urging Carleton Place town council to stand up to developers and tell them that they can build, but only if it makes the town a more walkable community. “Carleton Place is at time when people want to move here, they want to build here,” said Kerry Hamilton, after a special meeting of town council July 7. “You’re in a prime time to say, ‘No, we want it this way’ … You can take a step back and not say yes to everything.” Hamilton, a lifelong Carleton Place resident, pointed out that a proposed Wal-Mart in Cobourg was delayed until the proposals were changed to make the new development more pedestrian friendly and green. Hamilton is a graduate student at Queen’s University in Kingston, and is an MSc candidate pursuing studies in health promotion and the ‘built environment’. She did commend council for encouraging paths along the side of McNeely Avenue as a way to keep people See TELL, page 3

hearing is important to me. Due to my reduced vision, “ My I need all the hearing I can get. When I recently moved to Kanata I needed someone who could help with my overall hearing care. I was told to go to Capital Audiology because of their reputation for good service. I was lucky to find them. After trying a few sets of hearing aids, an FM system and some amplified phones we settled on solutions that really worked for me. Thank you to Eric and Lori for spending all that time and going beyond my expectations.

At Capital Audiology our focus is on counselling. We counsel patients about wonderful new products, but more importantly, we discuss the realistic expectations and implications of hearing loss. Patient education equals successful treatment of hearing loss. — Eric McKeown, Owner











McNeely Avenue fared better at 45 per cent, since it was walkable, close to green space and, of course, plenty of stores. Hamilton said that the big box stores along Highway 7 could still be made more green and pedestrian friendly, by adding more walking paths, crosswalks, and infilling apartments and other stores in existing parking. “We need to make active choices easy choices,” said Hamilton. She asked if any of the councillors had ever walked or cycled to the big box stores. Coun. Jerry Flynn said that he had cycled there, once. “I took a taxi back,” Flynn said. Even Hamilton, herself an avid cyclist, said that while she loves the ice cream at the Balderson shop near Franktown Road and Highway 7, she has only made that trek on cycle once, and would not want to repeat the experience. In order to make Highway 7 more inviting – and maybe encourage people to stay a while and shop – Hamilton suggested a green median could be installed in the middle of the road. She even suggested that, in the future, a pedestrian bridge could be built over Highway 7, and that housing developments within walking distance could be build along the highway’s southern edge and beyond. The intersection of Moore Street and Lansdowne Avenue was an area where Hamilton Photo by Desmond Devoy felt that the town had regressed A family makes its way down Bridge Street in Carleton Place after at somewhat and lost its walkable show at the town hall auditorium. Bridge Street scores very high in appeal. As one drives south as terms of walkability. Bridge Street becomes Moore,

Continued from front page moving and active, and to offer an alternative to the car to get up and down the street. “Carleton Place has done a lot with their new developments, so I commend them for that,” said Hamilton. The main thrust of Hamilton’s speech was to highlight how an area’s built environment could impact – positively and negatively – on the health of the people in that area. If a child has no place to exercise, then they will not exercise, for example. “We’ve really been building a lot of parking lots instead of pedestrian walks,” said Hamilton. “We’ve been building a lot of roadways, but not a lot of walkways … We’re promoting physical activity but not a physical environment.” She pointed out that she has used her family home on Joseph

Street near Notre Dame Catholic High School in the town’s north end as a guinea pig in an online computer program that measures how pedestrian friendly an area is to pedestrians. Joseph Street itself scored 22 out of 100. “We don’t have enough gridlike intersections,” said Hamilton of the score. “I only have a school that I can walk to,” she said, adding that a five-to-10 walk window was good to have. The school was not the only walkable thing in her neighbourhood though. “I know we have a Mac’s Milk in our area,” said Hamilton. “My mom walks to it whenever we run out of milk. We need more stuff like that.” A walk from Joseph Street to the downtown core of Bridge Street scored a low six out of 100.



The final tax bills for 2011 are now being mailed to property owners. The first installment date will be August 31, 2011 and the second installment date will be October 31, 2011.

ed out that someone was already hit by a car at the crosswalk near the post office on Bridge Street. Hamilton said that courtesy crosswalks take some time for a community to get used to and that even she is guilty of not always noticing them. “I’m totally not used to it and I drove right through it,” she said of a recent driving experience. “We’re trying to change the culture. (But) I would stick with it. I think it is the right idea.” “These are in every town across the country and they work everywhere else,” said Flynn. “Why don’t they work here?” Antonakos pointed out that the courtesy crosswalks are not consistent with provincial standards.

“it kind of dissipates.” She remembers going to the Tim Hortons at the intersection, and shopping at the Giant Tiger store that used to be in The Mews. “I don’t see a lot of pedestrians down there any more,” said Hamilton. Bridge Street, however, fared very well, at 88 per cent walkability, with plenty of shops and houses mixed together. “We want environments like that,” said Hamilton. Hamilton is a big proponent of courtesy crosswalks, but some councillors had their reservations about them. “We have an issue here with courtesy crosswalks,” said Coun. Rob Probert. Coun. Louis Antonakos point-

Beckwith Street work could last until November 1 Continued from front page The tender, which also includes site development for 7 Beckwith St., closed at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, July 5, and the winning bid was approved at a special meeting of Carleton Place town council on July 7. The Tomlinson bid was for $1,305,488, while the second lowest bid was for $1,337,000 from Dalcon Enterprises Incorporated. The highest bid was from Beckwith Township-based Thomas Cavanagh Construction Limited. “It works out well,� said Dave Young, the town’s director of public works, since Tomlinson is already doing work currently on the project, and that the next stage of the project was due to be executed on the morning of Monday, July 11. Treasurer Phil Hogan pointed out that the demolition of the old Canadian Tire store and the laundromat was part of a separate tender, and that extensive work on the next phase needed to be carried out, including environmental, transportation, sewer, etc. The possibility of selling some land on that site could bring in between $300,000 and $500,000, which would mean that the town would only be $800,000 in debt on the project, instead of the current projected $1.2 million deficit. “It continues to seem to me that the reserves get nickled and dimed, but I’d like to see it (the reserves) built back up,� said Deputy Mayor Ed Sonnenburg. The town’s chief administrative officer, Paul Knowles, added that the Albert to Lake portion of work was all that was planned for the area this year. While he did not have a firm end date from the company, the contract states that work must be completed by Nov. 1.

What’s your favourite road trip memory?

The true value of free fishing week

BRIER DODGE Through Bri’s Eyes


here has long been a rather strange tension between two groups one might expect to share common goals, if not common means for reaching those goals. For simplicity sake we will label one group “environmentalists” and the other “conservationists.” Both want the best for nature. However, generally speaking, environmentalists prefer a hands-off approach. So long as humans don’t get involved in natural processes, or at the very least remove themselves from processes that have become horribly corrupted - nature will rehabilitate itself. Conservationists, again generally speaking, prefer taking a management role. People should make use of the bounty offered on Earth. Obviously there is much overlap. Not all environmentalists spend their time in large cities lobbying governments to prevent even good work getting done to restore wilderness areas. And not all conservationists release their catch, so to speak. There are less than ideal candidates on both sides. Still, we champion many of the activities that are conceived and administered by conservationists. One such activity, Ontario Family Fishing Week, officially ended last Sunday. Ontario Family Fishing Week is a chance for families that wouldn’t normally consider spending time in Canada’s great outdoors to pick up a rod and reel and hit the water. It is the one week of the summer that fishing licences are unnecessary. There are also a number of programs offered that teach people how to tie a line, that loan tackle, and remove other barriers. It’d be nice for anglers in Carleton Place or Almonte to have their own derby on the Mississippi. We could wax on about how fishing is a great way for families to spend time together; about how fishing is a great way to spend solitary time on the water, maybe contemplating life or letting all the stress of life slide away. We could also talk about how the economic spin-offs from non-commercial sport fishing does wonders for rural economies. But we won’t delve deeply into the reasons conservationists are right when it comes to fishing (when practiced in moderation). Suffice to say the best way to save the environment is the age-old ‘useit-or-lose-it’ principle. Only those who make use of, thus benefit from, the environment understand its true value.

Will and Kate brings memories of earlier royal visits To the Editor: The visit of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge was a great success, and thanks to TV it was enjoyed by most of the population. This was not the case in earlier times, but local papers spread the news. In 1860 when the Prince of Wales came to Ottawa to lay the cornerstone for the new Parliament buildings, it was reported in local papers. Writing in the book, Our past Is Looming, which was recently published by the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum, John Dunn describes the journey of the prince on the Ottawa River to Arnprior and his return trip overland by horse-drawn carriage to Al-

monte where he boarded the Brockville train, since Almonte was the terminal point at the time on the Brockville and Ottawa Railway. Dunn quotes the Rideau Gleaner as reporting a 15-minute delay because the train “moved off amidst deafening cheers of the crowd who had collected to do honour to the future king of England as for his mother’s sake (Queen Victoria) as on his own behalf.” Crowds cheered the prince’s train as it passed through other communities on the route including Carleton Place and Smith Falls before reaching Brockville.

Canada Day usually makes us patriotically reflect on the most Canadian things. Hockey, a cold beer on the dock of the cottage while the heavy scent of bug spray is ignored, and our warm summer days in start contrast with the snowy winters. There is something that seems to remain classic year after year, and that is the summer road trip. There is a difference between a commute and a road trip though, and that’s in the glory of the drive, no matter the destination. For example, my short drive to the cottage in White Lake becomes a road trip with the addition of a couple friends, a well chosen playlist, and a stop at Scoops in Pakenham. On a recent weekend, I set off with a couple friends for a well executed road trip. We chose the best trip vehicle of those between us, stocked up on food and drink, and all came prepared with our pump-up playlists. The final destination was set aside as we loaded in the car, and amped up for our first pit stop destination along the way, in Brockville. After a quick stop at the slots, we made the decision the road trip was in full swing and a stop at the Big Apple would make it a full-blown adventure. Armed with my camera and legs to stretch, we hopped out and did the tourist thing for half an hour – and, of course, picked up a couple apple pies to stick in the cooler. We did have a final destination and purpose, but the weekend turned into a true Canadian summer road trip, memorable from the time the duffel bags landed in the trunk, and not just when we arrived at the point B on our Google maps.

Turn school into affordable seniors housing

Why change things when we can ignore the problem? To the Editor: Sunday, June 5, World Environment Day, has come and gone. That the event appeared on a few calendars doesn’t mean anybody cared about it. And why should they? It’s easier to revel in how things are than to change them. Everyone gets to work by car; their own car, cars that create obscene emissions, pollution, and greenhouse gases that are supposedly harmful. Though it’s clear that carpooling or biking would reduce these significantly, that would require change, an uncomfortable and inconvenient shift, from what we do now. Changing our behaviour would change who we are, a proud people, triumphant in world affairs, peacekeeping, and hockey. We exhibit this pride by having a trim lawn. A lawn that’s weed-free screams “I’m Canadian!” So for all of us who use pesticides, don’t stop! The supposed risks pesticides have on human health do not outweigh the benefits to our lawns. Do a few kids getting cancer or future generations growing up on heaps of mutated soil and crops really warrant us having to walk by lawns riddled with dandelions? The lawn is a temple. It reflects outside what we are inside. With Canadians using gas mowers every summer, producing roughly 350 million pounds of CO2, we can see clearly how important lawn care is. The lawn tenders aren’t ignorant to the costs


of their obsession - they know what mowing does to the environment and gas to their pocket book; they choose to defy it! Though the motorless hand mower boasts zero emissions, it just doesn’t cut it like gas. For what is a man without a perfect lawn? A sickly hermit, breathing clean air, but unable to look himself in the mirror! When we take a break from this battle against long grass, we visit the closest fast food column. An outsider may say it doesn’t make sense the amount of packaging used for a burger that will be consumed in five minutes, the plastic bag for a sub already secured in two layers of paper, or the superfluous lid for a drink that if it falls will spill anyways - but we know better! This is our time, to relax and feel comfortable. It is easier to revel in this than to change it. So when you see the next calendar, do not feel obliged to do a half-hearted something for World Environment Day but laugh at it, because you have a right to. The masses have a right to their ease and apathy; they’ve worked hard all day! These pathetic attempts to depose what we think and how we live threaten the death knell to a way of life that has served us for generations. To consume is to prosper; to pollute is to relax. Things are made simpler by what’s being put to the axe on the environment’s behalf. Our lives are hard enough, why change what we know? Change is difficult; ease is easy. Nick Grover Carleton Place

them special,” said Byrne, and two greatgranddaughters, lit up his life. “His great granddaughters were his shining stars,” she said. “They brought him to life, even in his sickness.” Part of his reasoning behind opening A.J. Byrne and Sons Hardware was to include his sons, who both worked at the store. Byrne and Coe opened the hardware store after he took early retirement from Stats Canada at 55, and Coe left her job at Lee Pro Hardware in Almonte. “He was really the books guy,” Giles said, but noted “he loved talking to people” who came in the store. Besides his family, Byrne had two strong passions: hockey and his church. “Detroit Red Wings have been his team since he was a little boy,” Giles said. A fan of the Red Wings and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, he had gone on road trips

ALMONTE – Family and friends in the Almonte-Pakenham area are remembering Arthur Joseph ‘Art’ Byrne, who passed away in his sleep on Canada Day. Byrne lived in Mississippi Mills all of his life, growing up and raising his family in Almonte before moving to Pakenham after he opened the Home Hardware in 1978. His daughter, Cathy Giles, remembers him as kind and caring gentleman. “Everything he did, it was usually for somebody else,” she said. Giles said family was everything to Byrne, the youngest of seven children. Married to Jean Coe, he and his wife had four children, Giles, Tim Byrne and Christine Pierce, as well as a son Terry, who predeceased his father. His seven grandchildren, “each of

While he was a great hockey fan, he devoted much of his time to the church and helped found the local Catholic School Board. Giles said once funding was available for separate schools, he wanted to make sure that his own area could get the funding. The only problem was there wasn’t a second school board. He, along with several others, started the Lanark, Leeds and Grenville County Roman Catholic Separate School Board.

In 1998, the board amalgamated with Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry board and the Prescott-Russell English board to become the present day Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario. He spent many evenings and weekends working as a board trustee, Giles said. He remained dedicated to his faith, from his early days at St. Mary’s Church as an alter boy, to his older days when he continued to drive to Almonte from Pakenham to continue to attend the church, and volunteer as an usher. “Everything he did, it was usually for somebody else,” said Giles.

Teen dies in ATV accident STAFF CARLETON PLACE – The funeral was to be held today (Thursday) in Carleton Place for 18-yearold Justin Makivirta, died following an all-terrain-ve-

hicle (ATV) crash on Saturday. Police released the teen’s name Monday, following the weekend incident that saw Makivirta overturn his ATV north of Buckingham. The police said that he

was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. There have been multiple ATV accidents in the area and across the province over the past few weeks, prompting OPP detachments to stress the importance of ATV safety.

Mumbo Jumbo Voodoo Combo set to take the Bluesfest Stage

Certain things just go together in pairs, when neither would be quite complete alone. Local band Mumbo Jumbo Voodoo Combo and Bluesfest are one of those pairs. The band will participate in Bluesfest again this year, as they have almost every year since the festival began. “The only time we haven’t played at Bluesfest was last year, so 15, 16, 17 times,” said Steve Lund, the lead singer. “Last year the Bluesfest gig we did do was for the Blues in the Schools dinner. We’ve been almost 100 per cent there every year since the beginning.” The four-piece band has had a few changes in members over the years, but it is currently composed of Lund, who hails from Almonte; keyboard player Peter Brown from

Carleton Place; saxophone player Brian Magner from Ottawa; and bass player Grant Tomkinson from Westmeath. The band is a New Orleans style blues group that aims “to be bluesy, but different,” said Lund. Lund is a full time – or “fool time” as he likes to call it – musician. He said the band aims to entertain at Bluesfest, and get the crowd into it. “The purpose of Mumbo Jumbo is for our musical jolies,” he said. “But if the audience doesn’t have fun and dance, there’s no point to it.” He has had many Bluesfest highlights over the years, from playing with special guests to introducing friends and idols to the stage. Jerry Mercer from April Wine even joined them on stage one year. “He inspired me as a drummer, and then years later he’s coming to see my shows and coming up to

play with us,” Lund said. “That was a highlight.” This summer the Mumbo Jumbo Voodoo Combo will take several stages, including the Wilno Tavern on July 22 and Canafest in Merrickville on Aug. 1.

JULY 17 Steve Lund and his band, the Mumbo Jumbo Voodoo Combo, will take the Hard Rock State stage at 1:15 p.m. this Sunday, July 17. Also playing on July 17 are Death Cab for Cutie and Cheap Trick of “I Want You To Want Me,” fame among others. Lund said the Bluesfest bands he’s looking forward to seeing this year include The Funky Meters from New Orleans, John Fogerty and Leon Russell. “Playing there is great, you get to play on a stage when you can really do, that you’ve been practicing for all that time,” Lund said. “It’s bigger than normal life.”

Rideau Regional Centre sale finally complete The Rideau Regional Centre’s sale was finalized on Friday, July 8. The former home for adults with developmental disabilities was sold to Joe Gallipeau, owner of Gallipeau Construction of Smiths Falls, by the Ontario Realty Corporation. The company plans to develop a unique community for active seniors at the site near Smiths Falls, as well as commercial enterprises on the site. The 354-acre property east of Smiths Falls includes 50 buildings with more than 800,000 square feet of space. “It’s good news, tremendous news,” said Smiths Falls Mayor Dennis Staples. “Now we’ve got two left on the agenda (Stanley Tools and Hershey’s facilities).” The RRC originally opened in 1951 under the name, Ontario Hospital School. It was renamed the Rideau Regional Hospital School in 1967, then changed again in 1974 to the Rideau Regional Centre. The RRC closed in March 2009. Randy Hillier, MPP for Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox and Addington, wrote in a press release he is pleased the RRC was sold to a “local, family owned company.” “Plans are underway to develop a unique community for active seniors,” he said. “There will be opportunities for leasing sections of this facility, which features multiple buildings totalling over 800,000 square feet on 350 acres of land.” Tracy Gallipeau said the first project Gallipeau Construction is planning is the

commercial laundry facility that once existed inside the RRC. She said they hope to have the facilities up and running by Sept. 1. “We’re hoping to get that up and running for local businesses and provide some jobs,” Tracey said. “I think they had 20 people working there when it closed, so we’re hoping to have that up and running again.” She said Gallipeau Construction also hopes to have a pool and recreation facility up and running by Sept. 1. Businesses compatible with the vision for the project are welcome to contact Gallipeau Construction at 613-283-3717. This includes health services, legal and financial consulting, food service and merchandising. “I want to congratulate Joe Gallipeau on his perseverance through a very delayed and difficult process,” said Hillier in a news release Monday. “Mr. Gallipeau’s foresight and vision for this property faced many obstacles of ineptitude and incompetence by the government agencies and ministries who were involved in the sale.” In a deal that was supposed to close last March, the province discovered it had not fulfilled its mandate to perform a heritage study of the building prior to putting it up for sale, and delayed the sale “with a great number of expensive and intrusive demands upon the proponent,” said Hiller. He claims that it was only though Gallipeau’s persistence and assistance from himself that the sale was completed.

Herbfest 2011 goes back to the land, as always

ALMONTE – What do you do when the salt you love doesn’t love you back? No need to be stuck with dull, un-spiced meat for the rest of your days. You can still follow doctor’s orders, and keep a bit of spice in your life with just a dash of oregano. “A pinch of oregano easily replaces salt,” said Jerry Bedard, organizer of the 2011 Herbfest at his farm, The Herb Garden, near Almonte. Another benefit of oregano is that, like rosemary and thyme, you benefit from the herbs’ antioxidants. With an aging population, and the changing dietary requirements that aging sometimes entails, Bedard feels the herbal message will grow. “There are more older people now,” said Bedard. “As we get older, our sense of taste is diminished,” but introducing herbs can make a big difference and keep food tasting great. “The culinary uses of herbs have been around for thousands of years … because of the lack of refrigeration,” said Bedard. And now, the humble herb is making a comeback. “They were way ahead of their time,” said Bedard of the festival’s founders. “In regards to the fact that they wanted to promote local family farms and businesses.” Some area animals appear to be heeding Bedard’s pro-herb message, to an extent – unfortunately for him. “The deer will not touch herbs, except parsley,” said Bedard, of the 179 other varieties of herbs he grows. “They will come in and clear out the parsley down to the root,” while a nearby field of basil remains untouched. The 16th annual Midsummer Herbfest runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., come rain or shine, on Sunday, July 24. A new feature at the festival this year will be two presentations by Reptiles at Risk, at 10 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Other old favourites, however, will still be on tap.

“One thing about Herbfest is that it is pretty consistent in the programming,” said Bedard. “It is just the names and the faces that change.” Three well-known cooks will face off for a cook-off, using the freshest ingredients from the gardens nearby, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Also, more than 100 entrepreneurs will be setting up shop, temporarily, at the gardens. “We’ve had to turn away at least 10 potential vendors because we’re completely sold out,” said Bedard. The annual festival is run by the Ottawa Valley Herb Association as a not-for-profit venture, and it relies on the support of more than 60 volunteers, though Bedard is still looking for a few more volunteers. “Originally, it was for herbal-related products,” said Bedard. “It was expanded to include more of a wellness lifestyle event … But herbal is still the biggest component.” Bedard said that, in the seven years he and his wife George have run The Herb Garden, he has been amazed at the level of community support for the festival, but he also has a kind word for Mother Nature as well. “The venue is very mystical and magical,” he said, with an air of reverence, looking around his gardens. “We’re probably one of the few places where these log farm buildings, 180 years old, are still in use for their original farming purpose … So, the magic is still there.” The main gift shop, for example, built in 1865, predates Canada by two years, and one of the barns was erected in 1830. Other events at the festival include: • Introduction to Deva Yoga with Swami Devaprasad, 9:45 to 10:30 a.m. • Growing Garlic is Not for Sissies with Diane Bradley, 10 to 10:45 a.m. • Garden Tour, 10:30 a.m., with Grandmother Alma Lo. • Family Yoga with Anamda Sly, 11 to 11:45 a.m. • The Pilgrim’s Garden, noon to 12:45 p.m. • Wild Herb Walk, 1 p.m., with Martha Webber.

• Introduction to Folk and Novelty Dance with Ellen Youle, 1 to 2:30 p.m. • Lanark County Live Poets Society performance, 2 p.m. • Labyrinth Walk, 3 p.m., with Bhuvaneswari Devi. • The Great Ontario Cheese Discovery with Vanessa Simmons, 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. • The Power of Greens with Natasha Kyssa, 3 to 4 p.m. There will be several musical acts performing in the food court, including: • Marimba Band, 9 to 10 a.m. • Lucas Haneman, 1 to 2 p.m.

• Drumming Circle, 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. • The Ottawa Valley Special, 4 to 5 p.m. • Dance performances by Garden Fairies. Advance tickets are on sale at The Herb Garden, 3840 Old Almonte Rd., Almonte; The Table Restaurant, 1230 Wellington St., Ottawa; Reid Landscaping, 142 Pick Rd., Carleton Place; and Rainbow Foods, 1487 Richmond Rd., Ottawa.

AGH partnerships improve the delivery of health care

This ad is generously underwritten by the

“continuum” to describe our collective efforts to improve the health status of those we serve but the concept is the same. No organization, or Health Service Provider as the Champlain Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) calls us, is an island. By working together with others we provide better care. Over the years, Almonte General Hospital (AGH) has developed a number of partnerships for exactly that purpose. One example is our relationship with Lanark County Mental Health. Their staff provide outpatient counselling from an office located inside the Hospital, which means that they are available as an on-site resource to our patients and staff when we need them. More recently, the Mills Community Support Corporation included AGH in its Neighbourhood Tomato Program. Throughout the summer, clients/patients in our

Day Hospital and Rosamond Unit will be able to enjoy gardening, an activity they may have given up due to difficulty reaching the ground safely. The raised garden beds provided by the Mills and its generous donors allow people in wheelchairs and those with balance problems easy access to the plants so that they can enjoy the therapeutic benefits of gardening. Last week, we established a different kind of partnership. AGH physicians and staff worked with staff from the Ottawa Heart Institute to develop a plan for collectively caring for a patient with a specialized device so that he can spend the summer at his cottage, which is in our area. Whether they help many people, a few people or just one, the relationships we develop enrich our lives and those of our patients. I’m glad we’re not an island.

No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; This phrase, written by John Donne in 1624, has endured over almost four centuries.

Entertainment producer proposes performance fund for CP DESMOND DEVOY

CARLETON PLACE – Local singer/ performer Lyle Dillabough is promising to donate any profits from a concert by famed Canadian singer Murray McLaughlin this fall to establishing a performance fund for the town. McLaughlin is slated to perform at the Carleton Place town hall auditorium on Oct. 28, with Lori Cavanagh of Cavanagh Construction agreeing to provide upfront funding for the concert. “He’s not asking the council for any money,” said Coun. Rob Probert at the policy review committee meeting June 28. Dillabough, the self-titled ‘Ottawa Valley Troubadour’, was seeking the council’s permission to waive the hall rental fee for McLaughlin’s performance so that more proceeds could be donated. “I think it’s great that we have someone of the calibre of Murray McLaughlin coming,” said Mayor Wendy LeBlanc. “I think it will be great to furthering entertainment in the town. It’s just the start of the quality entertainment.” The committee endorsed Dillabough’s application, and Coun. Jerry Flynn noted that “This fund is something we have discussed for a long time,” adding he supported Dillabough’s request to waive the town fees.



“I think that we’ll make good money on the McLaughlin concert,” said Flynn. The proposed purpose of the fund would be to provide seed money for performance fundraisers benefitting the town hall auditorium. It is also hoped that, in time, the performance fund would provide money to kick start a series of high calibre performances, which would generate profits that could then be directed towards renovation projects at the auditorium.

Even though her message is positive, she will get negative too. “I’ll teach people about negative consciousness,” said Day. Sometimes, people find themselves in a negative work or home environment. Day admitted that by connecting to ones inner energy, “they (can) change their relationship with those negative people…the person feels a little better.” But negative workplaces can constrain a person’s ability to become fully self-fulfilled. “Is that the right place to be working in?” she asked. “The higher self will guide the self to a better place. Their gift to the web of life is being constrained,” if they continue working there.

If the worker is seeking a better place, spiritually and workwise, “the web of life configures to get them to a place to where their gifts are recognized.” All are welcome to her talk, but she advises that people come with an open mind. “A person has to feel an inner calling for it, a yearning,” she said. While she has done a lot of research on the effects of violence against women, she has not yet offered her spiritual energy techniques to women who have experienced violence, though she would relish the chance. “Spiritual healing might not be at the top of the list when you’re protecting your kids,” she said.

ALMONTE – On July 25, forget your hydro bills and find some free energy. And who better to know the value of your own, built-in energy than a former economist, Tanis Day, who will be speaking on Monday, July 25 from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the Heritage Court, 14 Mill St., Almonte, giving a free talk on human energy fields and connecting with higher spiritual energies. Day has a PhD. in economics from Queen’s University in Kingston, the same school where she taught women’s issues for nearly 20 years. “I think to anyone, it would seem like a big leap,” said Day of her move from academics to the more spiritual side of life. She is also the founder of the School of Energy Enlightenment in Kitchener, Ont., but her academic background is never far removed from her current teachings. “I was a very unusual economist,” said Day. “I was looking at the human side of economics, which is not a very valued part.”

path came while living in the real world, “being a single mother with bills and driving kids around.” “Modern spiritualism is not removed from the world,” added Day. “It is not meditating on mountain tops.” Her talk later on this month, she says, will help people connect to powers within themselves that many did not even know that they had. “I’ll teach people about their own energy field so that they will know that they are much more than just their physical body,” said Day. She said that connecting to such energy fields can help bring a person “peaceful, unconditional love that we all need.”


She looked at the value of unpaid work, and the price society literally pays for violence against women. “(It was) eye-opening to show people the money and human side,” of the problems, she said “There’s not a market for it, but there is a cost to it. Showing that there are a lot of costs…it is powerful.” Around 1992, her marriage ended and she left with four children in tow. “Now, what do I want to do with the rest of my life?” she asked herself. She continued her teaching until her retirement in 2000, but she still does academic research and the occasional talk on economics and women. She started working on her spiritual teaching full-time in 1997. “I would say that it wasn’t the beginning of my journey, it was the re-starting of my journey, which was put aside during my marriage,” said Day. “I did a lot of intensive spiritual work.” One aspect of her former academic life that she wanted to bring with her into her new life was the “inspirational” aspect of working with students. For Day, finding her own spiritual

The Kanata Stallions will have their own version of Don Cherry behind the bench for next season – minus the colourful suits. The Central Canada Hockey League (CCHL) team announced on July 7 that it has hired as coach Pakenham resident and former NHL right-winger Randy Pierce, who broke into the league with the Colorado Rockies in the 1977-78 season under the now-famous broadcaster. Pierce has deep roots in this area and coached the Arnprior Packers to two Valley titles in the late 1990s. The Stallions, the Fred Page Cup hosts, have been without a bench boss since last season’s coach of the year Adam Dewan resigned shortly after the team’s opening-round playoff exit to the Cornwall Colts because he wanted to spend more time with his newborn daughter. “I’m not babysitting. You’ve got to play my game,” Pierce said. “I was coached by Don Cherry and my theory and his theory are pretty much the same. Respect your coaches and everything they want you to do and give 110 per cent every time you step on the ice.” Pierce, a Pakenham native who played for the Smiths Falls Bears in 1974-75, finished his professional career in 1986 after stints with Colorado, New Jersey and Hartford, and turned to coaching. After stops in the American college ranks and the International Hockey League, Pierce

guided the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League’s Arnprior Packers to two Valley division titles from 1995 to 1999. Although Pierce has spent most of his time scouting since his son, Matt, graduated from the Stallions seven years ago to attend and play hockey at Mercyhurst College in Pennsylvania, he has applied for several vacant CCHL coaching jobs in the last couple years. This familiarity with the community and owner John Russo from his role on the coaching staff when Matt was a Stallion were contributing factors in the hire. But Pierce cited his ability to develop future NHLers like current Minnesota Wild winger Darroll Powe – who played with his son – as one of his biggest strengths. “I haven’t been coaching for a while, but that means nothing,” he said. “I played the game long enough and watched it long enough. I’m here strictly for teaching these kids how to play the game. “I’m a player’s coach. For all the players on and off the ice, no matter what the issue is, let’s resolve it. We’re out here to play hockey and make you the best hockey player we can.” Pierce said he was able to take in a few of the team’s game last

season and noticed a drop-off in their play from the start of the

year. He added that he plans to help the players pace themselves better, especially since they are scheduled to play in the Fred Page Cup in late April. It’s that type of thinking that will makes the Stallions excited about their new hire. “He brings a vast knowledge of the game in his coaching and his playing days,” general manager Lou Nistico said.

MADDEN Hearing Centre

Given that the Stallions are the host team, Pierce said he recognizes the pressure the team will be under this season. With the defection of top scorer Kyle Rankin to the United States Hockey League’s Sioux Falls (South Dakota) Stampede and the loss of overage goaltender Scott Shackell – who will attend Adrian College in Michigan – Pierce acknowledges there will be holes to fill. Because he plans to rely more heavily on defenceman and team captain Curtis Watson and last-year’s second leading scorer Brent Bisdee and expects Nistico to be very active at the league’s trade deadline in January, Pierce expects the loss of Rankin to be easier to cope with. “Goaltending has to be No. 1,” he said. “If we can find two good goaltenders, I don’t think we’ll have too many problems upfront.” Pierce’s contract will be reevaluated on an annual basis, but that doesn’t mean he is trying to use this job as a stepping

stone to the higher ranks. “If I can’t do the job that’s supposed to be done then I don’t deserve to be there either. I’m the same as a hockey player in my eyes. You’re hired to be fired as a coach,” he said. “My plans are to be here for three to five years and get this association back to the way it used to be when Archie Mulligan was there.” Mulligan was the first head coach when of the Kanata Valley Lasers when they joined the league as an expansion franchise in 1987. He guided the team to two league championships and a Fred Page Cup in 1997. For the Stallions to return to glory, Pierce said the team must play as a five-man unit, with emphasis on aggressive, positional play. “We’re out to win and we’re out to improve guys,” he said. “If these guys want to buy into my plan and do what I expect them to do, then our team will improve by the end of the year.” Pierce lives in Pakenham with his wife Danielle. They have three children, sons Matt and Brett and daughter Bridgette, Matt, an Arnprior District High School graduate, split his time last year playing forward for the American Hockey League Rochester Americans and the East Coast Hockey League Cincinnati Cyclones.

Word Source Marion Taylor WordSource gives voice to your vision! A writer with over 20 years of project experience, Marion Taylor’s versatility is a distinct asset to her clients. Specializing in proposal writing, business profiles, newsletters, video scripts and procedural guidelines, Taylor’s skills bridge the gap between technical business writing and creative marketing copy. Over the years her proposals have brought about $200,000 to the local economy, with one client earning a $50,000 grant this past spring. Of late, she’s been experimenting with video – filming, scripting, sound & visual editing – and the results are promising. “While it’s a first effort, the videos have earned just under 300,000 views on YouTube, and YouTube invited me into their revenue sharing program,” she says. Taylor attributes a strong background in writing instructional material with the videos’ success. “I’ve written for agriculture, broadcasting, publishing, high tech, non-profit, legal and government agency sectors, and the principles of effective communication are the same across the board.” She takes particular joy in the creative side of her business, recently venturing into magazine copy. She is currently chief contributor to the newsletter for Farmers’ Markets Ontario, and writes business profiles and best practices for the agricultural sector. Proposal writing is another area where Taylor’s technical background serves clients well. “Understanding the technical requirements of an RFP, RFSO or grant application is an acquired analytic skill, but matching them to client strengths and showcasing those strengths is more of an art,” she claims. “And it’s always exciting to help a client earn hard-won dollars with a successful proposal: there’s nothing quite like it,” says Taylor, who benefits from the resulting referrals.

The Champlain Cardiovascular Disease Prevention Network has released its 2011 Atlas of Cardiovascular Health, and with it comes a reminder that the case for tobacco control cannot be restated often enough. It is well known that unhealthy lifestyle habits begin at a young age in the home and at school. In a survey of participants from Eastern Ontario’s Champlain Region who smoked, the overwhelming majority (85.5%) began smoking between the ages of 11 and 20 years of age (Champlain Community Heart Health Data [CCHHS], 2011). In Leeds, Grenville & Lanark, 37.5% of the general population started smoking between the ages of 5 and 14 years – above both the provincial and national average of 33.7% and 36.9% (Canadian Community Health Survey, 200708). Achieving widespread success in youth tobacco control requires a change in the surrounding environmental conditions. Offering opportunities for physical activity and play free from second-hand smoke exposure is a prime example of a favourable condition for which the community must strive. Tobacco-free sports and recreation discourages youth from smoking, protects people from second-hand smoke exposure, supports those who are trying to quit, and promotes tobaccofree living while giving people a chance to perform at their best. With summer upon us, it’s a great time for coaches, parents and organizations to encourage healthy behaviours by discouraging the use of tobacco products and reducing exposure to secondhand smoke. “With adults acting as role models for our children and teens, any action that prevents exposure or clearly supports non-use of tobacco products is a step in the right direction,” says Paula Stewart, Medical Officer of Health for the Health Unit. “With 27.6% of the LG&L population self identifying as daily smokers (RRFSS, 2010), our youth are exposed to tobacco on a regular basis. “A recreation area free from tobacco products and exposure to second-hand smoke would ensure everyone enjoys the full health benefits of physical activity and play.”

Mystery bird a white-faced ibis LYNDA C. BENNETT Strictly for the Birds

A southern stray has arrived in the Carp area, a bird normally seen in the s o u t h we s t e r n United States. At first glance it was thought to be a glossy ibis. Bird expert Bruce diLabio had close looks at the bird and could see distinguishing field marks that identified it as an immature white-faced ibis.

Georgina Doe and I both spotted it on July 5, with brief views. We returned July 6, to obtain close views as the ibis fed by the Carp River. A photo of this ibis flying accompanies the column, taken by Georgina. The ibis had bronze tones in its chestnut plumage, lovely in the sunlight, with the long decurved bill. The Facebook page is called ‘Lanark Bird Spot’, and is open to anyone. When in Facebook, do a search. If you have bird pictures to share, please put them on this page. I’ve had whip-poor-wills reported from Lanark-Highlands this June and July, and now two sandhill cranes. On the evening of July 7, I drove to the areas and tried to see or hear these birds. No luck, but spotted five white-tailed deer, one skunk and one raccoon. One must always try again.

It is surprising how many bird species are singing late in the day. Song and field, plus white-throated sparrows were all heard and at least two very loud American robins.

Until July 17, the OPP is holding week two of its four-week Phone in One Hand, Ticket in the Other Distracted Driving Campaign to ensure those who do not comply with distracted driving legislation are dealt with to the fullest extent of the law. During week one of the campaign in May, OPP officers throughout the province laid more than 1,600 Highway Traffic Act charges relating to distracted driving, with many more to come this week. During the campaign, the OPP is ramping up enforcement efforts, stopping any drivers caught using a hand-held communications or other entertainment device. They will also be watching for and stopping motorists who exhibit careless driving due to distractions such as adjusting the radio, eating while driving. Using a cell phone or device capable of texting while driving can result in a fine of $155. Watching an entertainment device can result in a fine of $110. The Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) ranked the distracted driver as its number one concern on the roads in 2010.
