Layton led NDP to best-ever, second-place showing in Lanark riding in May 2 vote DESMOND DEVOY

LOYAL TO ROYAL A familiar, and opinionated, voice to radio listeners, Prof. Gerry Cammy, speaks out on why Will and Kate are just the right tonic for royalty’s future. 13

Former NDP candidates and volunteers, and area politicians, remembered the charismatic Leader of the Official Opposition, Jack Layton, this week. Layton died at his Toronto home early on the morning of Monday, Aug. 22. He was first elected as the federal NDP leader in 2003 and led the party to its best-ever showing of 103 seats in the May 2 election. Former Lanark, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington NDP candidate Doug Smyth was preparing to head out on a family vacation when he heard the news first

from the Canadian Gazette. “Oh no,” he said. “I’m just knocked out.” Smyth was a beneficiary of the ‘Orange Crush’, which saw the NDP become the official opposition for the first time ever this year, and which lifted his campaign to a respectable second-place finish. “I sort of knew that would come, just from the looks of him,” said Smyth, from the coverage of a gaunt-looking Layton delivering what was to be his final press conference as leader when he announced that his cancer had returned.

North Lanark Highland Games 2011

North Lanark Highland Games an Almonte success The North Lanark Highland Games avoided the rain on Saturday, with lively bands, athletic events, dancing competitions, vendors and children’s activities. Above, there was no shortage of instruments as bands joined the official duty band in the grand opening ceremony in the afternoon. Below: top left, Corp. Paul Lawrenson stands in front of the bands as he receives a standing ovation. Lawrenson is currently serving in Afghanistan and returned

home for a short visit and to lead the Cameron Highlanders for the games. He was set to return to Afghanistan following the games. Top right, local athlete Neil Lowry competes in the men’s afternoon events. Bottom left, the 84th Regiment re-enactment group was at the North Lanark Highland Games Saturday to commemorate the 175th anniversary of Ramsay. Many of the disbanded soldiers from the original group settled in Eastern Ontario, including

Ramsay. The group fired their muskets four times during a special demonstration.

Jack Layton - 1950 to 2011


Continued from front “That’s really sad,” said Smyth. “That’s a bad thing for the country, a sad thing for his family. He was quite a remarkable individual.” Before this year’s election was called, Smyth met Layton briefly at an event. “(He was a) very charismatic, powerful individual,” said Smyth. “I wish I had had time to sit down with him and talk.” Smyth commended Layton for making what he felt was a good impact during the election, but he noted it was sad that Layton could not enjoy the fruits of his hard labour over the years, as Leader of the Official Opposition. “He left something for people to work with,” said Smyth of the shape he left the NDP. “I’m not very familiar with who would take over that position. We’ll see who steps up.” Same names that have been mentioned include deputy leader Thomas Mulcair of Montreal and the NDP’s foreign affairs critic Paul Dewar of Ottawa Centre. Ray Samuels, the independent New Democratic candidate for the upcoming provincial election in Carleton-Mississippi Mills, was also drawn to the party by Layton. Samuels recalled seeing Layton in happier times during the annual Taste of the Danforth festival in downtown Toronto. As the MP for Toronto-Danforth, Layton was doing a constituent meet-and-greet, and Samuels saw first hand the Layton charm at work. “He had a whole crowd around

Canadians were pulling for him,” said Samuels. “Canadians, irrespective of their political perspectives, they admired his principles.” Samuels worked on many NDP campaigns when Layton was leader. “His name resonated at the



door,” said Samuels of his doorknocking duties in Ottawa. “They would respect that you were coming from a party with a leader that spoke with integrity.” “Our thoughts are with his family at this time,” said Leanne Waddell, manager of the Lanark, Leeds and Grenville unit of the Cancer Society, based in Perth. “We’re very sad to hear of his untimely passing…He seemed to touch many lives. Mr. Layton has always been a big supporter of health issues and the Canadian Cancer Society.” She pointed out that even back during his time on Toronto city

Layton to have state funeral Saturday in Toronto


Solar panel project subject of open house Beckwith Street down Aug. 31 in Almonte at Old Town Hall to one lane this week

Continued from front page

The company is hoping to build a 75-acre solar farm just off of the intersection of County Road 29 and Wilson Street in Mississippi Mills. If approved the solar farm will be home to about 50,000 solar panels. “We’re hoping that projects like this, that are well through the process, won’t have their contracts pulled back,” said Singer. “We’ve all heard (Ontario Progressive Conservative leader Tim) Hudak speaking so it is a concern.” Hudak said in a speech earlier this year that he would end subsidies for wind and solar power if he is elected premier in October, by doing away with the feedin tariff (FIT), which encourage solar power generation. Despite Hudak’s concerns, Singer pointed out the green energy industry “provide a lot of employment to people.” Singer also noted her project is hoping to sell its power through the Ontario Power Authority’s FIT contract, which fixes rates for 20 years. “We’re planning to connect to

Almonte,” said Singer. While who will win the provincial election Oct. 6 is still an unanswered question, residents can have their own questions answered about the solar project much sooner during a public open house next week. The public open house will be held on Wednesday, Aug. 31 from 4 to 7 p.m. at Almonte Old Town Hall, 14 Bridge St. The company has already been hosting public consultations with area residents for some time. “We’ve had a lot of people who are very supportive of the program, (and) some people have had some questions,” said Singer. Those questions include, “what will it look like?” The plan has been in the planning stages for about a year, and the company has, literally, been laying the groundwork for the project. “We usually have a land agent go out and look for areas that do not have environmental constraints and are near a transmission line,” said Singer. “I look at sites that cause the least environmental effects. This place

has, historically, been a farmer’s field.” The panels will be in long rows facing south, the direction best suited for soaking up the most solar radiation possible. Singer’s company has also been in contact with Lanark County about where would be the best area to situate an access road to the land from County Road 29. The project hinges on renewable energy approval from the Ontario Ministry of the Environment. After public consultations, the company will submit a proposal in the second quarter of 2012, with construction starting – pending approval – in early 2013. While no one will work fulltime at the site, there will be workers who maintain the panels and mow the grass. “We do look to hire locally,” said Singer. “We’re there for the long-term. We want to be part of the community.” On Tuesday, Aug. 16, Singer met with Mississippi Mills Mayor John Levi to seek input from the town, and she is also seeking quotes from local communities on possible contracts.

Access to parking lots, driveways, sidewalks curtailed on Beckwith, Albert streets DESMOND DEVOY

CARLETON PLACE – Traffic along Beckwith Street will continue to be reduced to one lane from time to time this week as construction work continues. The section of Beckwith Street from Lake Avenue East to Albert Street is the focus of the work, with Tomlinson construction and their subcontractors relining the roadway. They are also working on the storm sewers along the street and on the 7 Beckwith St. site. Traffic may be slowed somewhat, but the construction company has promised it will “do their utmost” to keep traffic moving. Traffic heading north along the road will have to yield to southbound traffic. Meanwhile, on the north end of the traffic zone, concrete crews began mobilizing on Beckwith Street on Tuesday, and will move to Albert Street

after Beckwith is complete. The concrete crews are installing the forms and pouring the concrete for new curbs and sidewalks. The process could take a few days and access to driveways and parking areas will be either reduced or unavailable. During the installation of curbs and sidewalks, vehicles will not be able to drive over the new concrete for between two and three days. drivers are asked to make alternative travel and parking arrangements. Pedestrians will be able to use the sidewalks within 24 hours after the concrete is poured, and before then, temporary access for pedestrians over the wet cement will be provided. The company and the town are also reminding those affected by the construction that the timeline for construction operations is subject to weather conditions, and rain could affect, or even delay, the construction schedule.

Junior Volunteer Program draws to close; senior volunteers needed Hot 89.9 FM radio star Josie Geuer will be the guest speaker at the Almonte General Hospital/Fairview Manor (AGH/FVM) Junior Volunteer party on August 29, 2011.

Mississippi Mills has come out on top, in a good way, in a recent waste audit carried out amongst several Lanark County municipalities. A “waste characterization audit” was carried out in March amongst several ‘waste partner’ municipalities, including the Town of Carleton Place and Drummond/North Elmsley and Montague townships. The municipalities, in league with other areas of Lanark County, are still in the middle of forming a municipal waste strategy, and needed this information to form a “benchmark to see where we are at.” “This audit was done as part of that process,” explained Cory Smith, a technologist with the Town of Mississippi Mills. “This is a great baseline,” he added. “The people of Mississippi Mills are certainly doing a great job out there. These are significantly good numbers across the board.” Mississippi Mills was found to have the best waste diversion rate of the municipalities surveyed at 37 per cent, beating its nearest rival, Drummond/North Elmsley at 30 per cent, though the Ontario target for waste diversion is 60 per cent. “We do have a ways to go,” said Smith. Mississippi Mills also had the highest level of recycling generation. The town also had the lowest average waste genera-

tion per household per kilogram per week, at 10 kilograms. The locations for the samples were randomly determined, and for Mississippi Mills, had to take into account both a rural and urban component, with 50 samples

The garbage and recycling was analyzed during an “extraction exercise,” at the Waste Management facility on Highway 15 between Carleton Place and Franktown. “It was a very practical spot to do our exercise,” said Smith. “We did fairly well.” The final report was prepared this past spring, and was sent to the various municipalities in early summer for analysis. The Mississippi Mills roads and public works department has already received a copy of the report.

Recycling in the area used to be handled by Lanark County, but was then downloaded to the municipalities who shortly afterwards formed a municipal waste strategy. “We’ve been working together to develop this program that we have,” said Smith. “We have community support for this program. He commended local groups such as The Hub and Rebound for their work in repurposing materials and recycling items that may otherwise have ended up in landfill. He added that, with community education, the numbers could certainly improve in all areas. Here are the results of the audit, by the numbers: AVERAGE WASTE GENERATION PER HOUSEHOLD PER WEEK

PER CENT OF RECYCLABLES FOUND IN WASTE STREAM 1. Drummond/North Elmsley – 12 per cent 2. Mississippi Mills – 14 per cent 3. Carleton Place – 16 per cent 4.

Jack’s great hope

Seeing Jack at the top of his game


ack Layton died Monday, in the early hours of the morning. A giant, his death was felt across the coun-

try. Canadians nationwide poured out their grief for Jack. The widespread admiration felt for him – some because of his views, some despite them – is among the man’s finest legacies. He is widely remembered as a fighter, a man of strong ideals and a person you’d be happy to call your neighbour. Outside his home in downtown Toronto, where he lived and died alongside his partner Olivia Chow, orange flowers quickly piled up. In Ottawa, people gathered to pay tribute on Parliament Hill, where the Peace Tower’s flag had dropped to half-staff. Politicians of all stripes recalled their fondest memories and favourite qualities of the NDP leader, a true achievement in a climate pock-marked by partisanship. Though he couldn’t keep his promise to return to the House of Commons in September, he made another pact in his final message to us. In Parliament, it will be as powerful a presence as his empty seat. By crowning a decades-long political career with the landmark success of his New Democrats in the May 2 election, Jack secured his status as that party’s greatest leader. But it was in his final letter that his great spirit shone brightest. It was with words of hope, however, that he chose to make his exit. In a letter to Canadians published hours after his death, Jack wrote that hope is a precious commodity in our world, and promised us we can change the world, if only we believe in its power. Those who “are on journeys to defeat cancer and live their lives” must maintain their hope, he wrote. “Don’t be discouraged that my own journey hasn’t gone as well as I had hoped.” And to those young people, who look out at their futures and see an array of overwhelming challenges, who are more and more engaging in politics with their dreams and frustrations, he implored them not to lose hope that they have the power to change the world for the better. But it was his final words – powerfully capped with the inclusive “We” – that touched so many, and will keep his spirit alive and fighting for years to come. And let’s not forget Jack’s great hope: that we can make the world – in which “life’s highs and lows are inextricably linked,” - a better place.

CP’s Lake Avenue has become a drag strip To the Editor: Lake Avenue East – nice quite residential street with a hospital on it. Right? CORRECTIONS/CLARIFICATION In our Aug. 18 edition, in our story “British home children’s memorial quilt on display at Textile Museum Aug. 25,” we reported that “Refreshments will be served on Aug. 27.” Refreshments will actually be served on Aug. 25 at 7 p.m., at the same time as the author’s talk. Also in the same issue, in the article “Celebrate Ramsay’s 175th birthday at museum exhibit,” we identified Brian Tackaberry as the North Lanark Regional Museum’s curator. In factor, Tackaberry is the secretary of the North Lanark Historical Society, and Doreen Wilson is the museum’s manager. Finally, in our article “The day the abortion protesters came to town,” pro-

Actually a drag strip with a hospital on it. How fast can you get from 0 to 60? Find out on Lake Ave. See LAKE, page 9 test leader Rosemary Connell actually said that “You cannot be Catholic and pro-choice,” rather than “You cannot be Catholic and pro-life.” We apologize for these errors. For the sake of clarification, in the same article about the abortion protest, we stated that, according to the Canadian Institute for Health Information, there were 44,416 abortions performed in hospitals in Canada in 2008. Several provinces, and territories, do not report the statistics for abortions performed at clinics. The CIHI, therefore, cites as “unknown” the number of abortions performed in clinics, so the full number of Canadian abortions for 2008 is not known for certain.

I like theatre, but political theatre is in its own special category. As someone who has covered politics since he was 15, I have seen political speeches that were good, bad and plain ugly. But on a week such as this, when we are all remembering the late Leader of Her Majesty’s Official Opposition, Jack Layton, I recalled that by far one of the most stirring speeches I ever heard was given by him back on a winter’s morning in 2008. The setting helped. A cheering crowd gathered on a morning of high drama during the “coalition crisis,” that December on the steps of Parliament Hill. Just hours earlier, Prime Minister Stephen Harper had gone to see then Governor General Michaelle Jean at Rideau Hall to prorogue parliament and, figuratively, dodge a bullet. Up on the stump, Stephane Dion, Gilles Duceppe and Jack. Dion gave his usual stilted performance, and Gilles spoke with fire in French, but blasé indifference in English, as is his wont. Ah, but Jack was “on” that morning. He really got the crowd going that day, and had them convinced that, yes, they just might be able to pull it off. I’ll never forget that he made his way to the crowd and spoke with students and other supporters, while Dion and Duceppe stayed on the stairs. Now, it’s easy to get caught up in the frenzy of a partisan crowd. Mass hysteria can make you think anything is possible and now, years later, people can see what a pipe dream it would have been for Jean to hand over the reins of power to Dion after Canadian voters had turned their backs on his party just weeks before. But, even when it came to a hair-brained idea, you had to admire Jack for his passion, his integrity and his chutzpah.

Lake Avenue new Dead Man’s Curve? Continued from page 8 Noise levels like an airport, especially from the bubbas on motorbikes with brains in reverse proportion to the decibels coming out of their tail pipes. People constantly crossing the street at all times to visit the hospital are just accidents waiting to happen. At least the ambulance will be close by. So what can we do about it? Well we could enforce the law: there is a speed limit on Lake Ave. (it’s a hospital zone after all); there is a sign at Neelin which says “Stop” not “slow up, check for cops and gun it”; and there is the Highway Traffic Act, Section 75, paragraph 1 which requires mufflers in good working order preventing “excessive or unusual noise” and does not permit: “a muffler cut-out, straight exhaust, gutted muffler, Hollywood muffler, by-pass or similar device.” If the town council wants to give the cops a hand, they could ban trucks and motorbikes and install speed bumps. Alternatively, we can wait for someone to get hit and then take reasonable measures after the point has been made more emphatically than through a letter to the editor.

BRIER DODGE Through Bri’s Eyes

Continued from page 8 Or, as my mother would say, “that fella’s got some neck.” I wrote the editorial a few weeks ago saying that “Layton has more than a fighting chance.” In my heart, I believed that if anyone could beat it, he could, out of love for his family, country and, frankly, out of sheer spite. But the roar of the crowd is one thing. A year later, he was back on the same steps, in front of a far smaller crowd. He was still standing, but Dion was gone. In his place was former Ontario Education Minister Gerard Kennedy, and it was a rally against homelessness. And still, the same passion, for a smaller room. “We’ve got to act to deal with homelessness,” he said with as much fervor as he had the year before during the constitutional crisis because, for him, homelessness was just as big of a pressing deal. A homeless man died just a block from his Toronto home, which later prompted him to write a book about the issue and call for a national social housing strategy. It’s rare to see someone inspire so many people, and whom people respect, regardless of party. Like Ronald Reagan, an ever-smiling happy warrior, he showed that politics can be about the possible, and not a constant, grim, grudge-match. We will never see the likes of him again and we will miss him.

Letter to the Editor

Home children history stretched back into the 1800s To the editor: Re. story in the Aug. 18 Carleton Place Almonte Canadian Gazette about the British Home Children and the memorial quilt. I appreciate the effort to inform about the quilt and its exhibition. And about the history of the British Home Children. But please, may we have an accurate account of who they were, and why they came. There are a few million descendants of Home Children in Canada, and their story is an important piece of history that many Canadians do not know about. Reporter Desmond Devoy has his information a bit skewed in his write-up about the British Home Children and Year of the British Home Child. This is not Second World War history. This is not children sent to Canada to be safe from the war. The Home Children began coming to Canada in the 1800s and into the 1900s (through the 1930s if memory serves, I am not an expert here). There were also many children sent to Australia, and some to the United States. The children were poor, many of them were from Barnardo Homes as my father was, and there were other children’s homes that sent children here. These children were often orphans, but also children whose families were destitute. The children came here to work, and were indentured until they reached the age of 18. Many were severely mistreated, some beaten, some were raped, some could not deal with the treatment and committed suicide. My father came here at the age of 15 in 1926, and worked Ontario farms for several years. Long before any hint of war or Hitler. To say that this was part of Second World War

history actually leaves out most of the children who immigrated. As a descendant myself, I really appreciate the effort to inform about the quilt and its exhibition. And about the history of the British Home Children. But please, may we have an accurate account of who they were, and why they came. It is important to their story. Carol Anne Stephen Daughter of British Home Child, Norman Swaebe Editor’s note: Stephen, of the Carleton Place area, also submitted the following article by Gail Collins in response to the Canadian Gazette article about a Home Children memorial quilt

that will be unveiled tonight (Thursday) at 7 p.m. at the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum. Collins is a proud third generation descendant of home children William Collins and Caroline Couzens. Are you a British home child descendant? From 1869 to 1948 various workhouses, sheltering homes, orphanages and child care organizations in Great Britain immigrated over 100,000 orphaned, abandoned, pauper children ages 1 to 18 to Canada, today known as British Home Children. Of over 50 sending agencies, some of the more well known names are Maria Rye, Macpherson, Fegan, Quarriers, Barnardo, Middlemore, Catholic Emigration Society,

Salvation Army, Church of England Waif & Strays and Fairbridge. This is a part of our Canadian history that has not been openly discussed, many not even knowing what a Home Child is. It is time to educate the public and a subject that should be included in the Ministry of Education’s curriculum and taught in our schools for our future descendants and generations Hopefully this will be done by 2011. It is estimated that 12%, over 4 million of the Canadian population, is a Home Child Descendant; how many would that be worldwide? See ‘MANY’ Page 15

Will and Kate are going to last: Cammy Opinionated radio host predicts another decade reign for Queen Elizabeth II DESMOND DEVOY

CARLETON PLACE – Get ready to see a lot more of William and Kate, and the Queen isn’t going anywhere soon. That was the verdict of avowed monarchist Professor Gerry Cammy during a presentation at the Carleton Place Manor on July 28. “Everyone is interested in the monarchy, whether you love it or hate it,” said Cammy, 67, who is best known as a radio host on CFRA. “This trip by this young couple has been the most successful royal trip ever.” He predicted Queen Elizabeth II would reign for between the next five to 10 years because, “she’s healthier than me,” he said with a laugh. “There is not a thing wrong with her.” While she is not a politician, the Queen still watches the polls. “The Queen is not a stupid woman,” said Cammy. “The Queen realizes that every country is not entirely in love with the monarchy.” That is why Her Majesty is using her eldest grandson and his

young bride as part of an ongoing charm offensive to reinvigorate the monarchy and make it relevant again to the next generation. The young couple may be the best shot the British monarchy has had in a long time, since the death of Princess Diana in 1997. “This is the royal wedding that is going to last … this marriage is going to last,” Cammy predicted of the April 30 nuptials. “If I was the Queen, I would not be happy with my family,” he said, pointing out the marriages of three of her four children have ended in divorce. Already, the public relations trip seems to be paying dividends, at least with Cammy’s granddaughter, who thanked him for taking her to see the Duchess of Cambridge along Sussex Drive in Ottawa. That night, his granddaughter told him, “for the first time in my life, I saw a real princess.” The young royal couple is also helping their cause at home because they keep their own house in rural Wales, where he works a regular day job as a search-andrescue helicopter pilot and she is a housewife.

Professor Gerry Cammy does a spot-on impression of the late Canadian Prime Minister John Diefenbaker before the start of a seminar on the monarchy at the Carelton Place Manor on July 28. “This is the most transparent couple of any family in the royal family,” said Cammy. He added that the House of Windsor needed some good press, after so many years of negativity. He pointed to the Republican League of Canada, which is pushing for a referendum to abolish Canada’s ties to the monarchy, like a similar vote

held in Australia in 1999, following the death of Queen Elizabeth. “I am deeply worried about that vote,” said Cammy, but then launched in to some counterpoints for monarchists to memorize in preparation for such a vote, including refuting the argument the monarchy costs too much. He pointed out that the

monarchy, by his calculation, costs about $50 million, or roughly $2.50 for every Canadian. While Canadians and other British Commonwealth countries may not be rushing to embrace the concept of King Charles, Cammy pointed out that Prince Charles simply cannot hand over his throne to his son. “It’s not a choice,” said Cammy. “It’s an obligation to be the king when you are raised in the royal family.” Cammy began conducting such seminars at seniors’ residences about three years ago when he was recovering from colon cancer. “This is what got me through my cancer,” he said. “Attitude is 80 per cent of the battle. I woke up with a smile on my face every morning (of chemo-therapy).” Cammy was perhaps best known for his Sunday talk show hosting duties at CFRA 580 AM news talk radio in Ottawa, where he still does radio specials, but he has been a professor of sociology and history for more than 42 years, most recently at Heritage College, a CEGEP in Gatineau, Que.

Dragon Boat Festival celebrating its 10th Anniversary On September 10th nearly 1000 paddlers will arrive in Riverside Park to participate in the 10th Annual Carleton Place Dragon Boat Festival. Since this an important anniversary for the event, the committee is hoping to make the day very memorable and for the 5th time, the Hospital has been named as the primary recipient of the Festival’s proceeds. “We are honoured that the Dragon Boat Festival has once again chosen our organization to be the primary recipient of the event and so pleased to help the committee celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Festival,” stated Spencer Grabe, President of the CPDMH Foundation. “On behalf of everyone associated with the Hospital, I would like to congratulate the committee on reaching this significant milestone - I know that this is going be another great year for Dragon Boating in Carleton Place.” Since the Carleton Place Dragon Boat Festival began, it has contributed over $70,000 to various charities in the community. In the past four years, the Festival has donated $36,000 to the hospital to purchase new equipment such as tourniquet machine for the operating room and a platelet mixer for the lab. Depending on the funds raised at this year’s event, the committee

is hoping to help purchase either a bed for the inpatient unit, a cardiac monitor for the operating room or two stretchers for use in day to day patient care.

The committee is pleased to once again have the Festival full with 44 boats participating in the event. For more information on the 10th Annual Carleton Place Dragon Boat Festival, including sponsorship opportunities, please visit “When we started the Festival in 2002 our goal was to host the best (fun & well-run) small, oneday dragon-boat event in Eastern Ontario and Contact: Chantelle Troy, Manager/Community each year we make slight changes to bring us Relations Officer 613-257-2200 ext 856 closer to our target,” stated Ann Poynter, Presi- e-mail: dent of the Festival Committee. “As a group, the committee and I are thrilled with what we have been able to accomplish over the last nine years and we are really grateful to all of sponsors and our volunteers, especially the Civitan Club, who have donated thousands of hours to make the Festival the success that it is.”

Continued from Page 10 On Dec. 7, 2009, the Canadian Government acknowledged this part of our past history and declared 2010 Year of The British Home Child Canada. Due to the economic conditions in Britain, the immigration scheme seemed well intentioned, and credit must be given to those organizations who tried to save these children, by sending them to Canada for a more promising life. Life for these children coming alone to Canada to work as domestics and farm labourers forging ahead in a new land was not always easy. Many of the Home Children found good homes, were treated as one of the family and received the love, necessities of life and education deserved. Many more did not. The greater majority suffered hardships, maltreatment and abuse. They were treated as cheap child labour, indentured and frequently moved about at the guardian’s whims, threatened or hidden from the inspectors, with no where else to go and no one else to turn to for help. They were very homesick with no hope or means of ever returning back to their homeland. Many never received wages owed them, they worked on the farms from dawn to dusk receiving sporadic or no further schooling, not provided with proper clothing, were shown no warmth, respect or love, and deprived of any happiness and necessities any growing child should have. Many enlisted in the WWs to get back home to find family only to return to Canada with dashed hopes. They were segregated from the general population, fingers pointed at them, their self-respect and dignity stolen from them by shame and embarrassment. Because of this, they hid the truth from their families or they lied fabricating a more glorious life. Can any of us really feel, understand or fathom the emotions these young people felt and endured? And endure they did. At 18 they were free of their indentures to go out on their own. They courageously went on to marry, raise families and become productive individuals despite their adversaries, contributing to the growth of Canada which we, their descendants, have proudly carried on with. Their legacy is not forgotten by us who now live worldwide. In October 2010, Canada Post issued a Home Child stamp. On Feb 24, 2010, the British government apologized to all child migrants, The British Home Child Descendants website accompanies the mailing list. Ccontacts living worldwide will find you at www.

Highway worker sprayed, driver charged

A Carleton Place man has been charged after an incident last week during road paving on Highway 17 between Pembroke and Renfrew. OPP report that on Aug. 16 a

complaint was filed that an unknown liquid had been sprayed at a construction employee on Highway 17 in Whitewater Region. As a result of an investigation, the vehicle was located and

a 51-year-old Carleton Place man was charged with assault with a weapon. Paving on that stretch of highway has been causing major traffic delays.

Natalie Bova and wild child horse ride to success BRIER DODGE

ASHTON – Affectionately known as Alfie, the Dutch imported horse had turned into a trainer’s nightmare. He spooked easily from years of beatings from a former trainer, and became wild when he stepped into the warm-up ring at show jumping events. But last week, during the National Capital show jumping tournament, Ashton rider Natalie Bova rode the horse she purchased for $500 next to Olympians on million dollar horses. “He’s very difficult out in the warm-up ring, he’s a little bit wild,” Bova said. “I just have to be really patient with him.” Bova didn’t just attempt to show the difficult horse, the team placed, just as the pair has in every competition they’ve entered on the Grand-Prix circuit this summer. Alfie isn’t the only underdog, with 24-year-old Bova competing in the professional division against athletes significantly older. She turned professional at 20 years old in order to compete for larger amounts of prize money, and competes against men and women often almost twice her age. Bova and Alfie won a second- and third-place in the 1.35-m division, and fifth in the more competitive 1.45m division at the tournament, which ran Aug. 10-14 and Aug. 17-21. “I was especially happy because I was showing against Olympians like Ian Millar,” she said of her results. “Jill Henselwood (Olympic medalist) won the division I placed fifth in.” Alfie, whose show name is Belafonte, is 12 years old, which is middle-aged in the horse world, where horses

Hydro One is urging Ontario residents to call Crime Stoppers to report suspected copper theft from its stations and facilities in an attempt to fight a rise of incidents that cause a serious safety concern. Recently a young male was badly burned while allegedly attempting to steal copper from a transformer station. “Stealing the copper fittings that ground high-voltage equipment is extremely dangerous. Copper thieves risk serious or

fatal injury, and put employees, first responders and the public at risk,” said Myles D’Arcey, Hydro One senior vice-president of operations. “It’s dangerous for Hydro One employees to enter a transformer station after a theft has occurred and work around high voltage equipment that is not properly grounded.” Copper wire theft continues to increase in North America, and Hydro One has been the target of a growing number of thefts

in recent months, from an average of 10 per month six months ago to 16 per month this summer. Hydro One welcomes the assistance of members of the public who can report suspected copper

theft by calling Crime Stoppers anonymously. To report a suspected theft anonymously, Ontario residents can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800222-TIPS.

Police report that shortly before 2 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 6, a concerned father from West Carleton called 911 to report his 16-year-old son had taken off in the family pickup truck and was possibly drunk. As police converged on the area from all directions, a patrol officer spotted a pickup looking like the one they were seeking turning off the Kinburn Side Road. A short time later a call went over the air advising the truck had been found and that it had been involved in a single vehicle collision. The truck was totaled and there was debris strewn all over the place: McDonald’s food, beer cans and truck parts littered the roadway. Paramedics were called in and the driver was subsequently taken to Arnprior District Memorial Hospital for further assessment. In the end the investigating officer charged the G1 driver with careless driving and having a blood alcohol concentration over zero. Police note the not-so-happy father decided to sell his son’s first car to cover the cost of the fines and repairs.

Hydro One warns of copper theft dangers


Teenage driving proved costly

often compete until about 18, Bova said. “I decided to take my time, and I didn’t jump him for the first six months I had him,” she said. “I’m still getting to know him, so I think next year will be even better.” He lives in the 15-stall barn Bova and her mother, Carrie Bova, run in Ashton, with nine other horses. Carrie Bova built Foxbridge in 2000, and her daughter took over teaching three years ago – though with a lot of help from mom, she admits. Growing up in a horse family meant Bova has been showing horses all her life, and can tie together work and training, as she shows other horses that board at Foxbridge, and teaches clients lessons. Although the Sacred Heart Catholic High School, and more recently Algonquin College, graduate now has an advertising diploma, she is focused on her riding career, and hopes to ride at the Olympics one day. “I don’t see any end in sight,” she said. “But in the Olympics, if you watch all the riders, the youngest ones are 35. Basically the biggest challenges are the money factor and sponsorship, so that’s what I need to start getting into.” Riding horses is a costly sport, which often prize money alone doesn’t cover. She rides for a charity, JustWorld, and wears the signature blue at tournaments, but will need more financial support in the future to achieve everything she wants. Still, after the past year that no one expected, Bova keeps her high goals a potentially close reality.

Plowing Match

‘Mighty Mouse’ hopes to save the day, keeping kids in plowing DESMOND DEVOY

“This is my first year in plowing,” said Dowdall after she had cut her line in the dark earth. “Last year I was plowing with my dad while Anna (my sister) was doing her plowing … (I thought) if she can do it, I can do it.” Dowdall lives on a cattle and beef farm just outside of Carleton Place where she proudly boasts her family has 48 cows, three horses and a bunny rabbit. “I think I did pretty good, except for that curve at the end,” said Dowdall, surveying her handiwork. “It’s hard to drive straight when people are telling you how to turn,” she said, alluding to Sturgess’ occasional hints and suggestions as he walked alongside her tractor. She had led her tractor very carefully, and slowly, down the path, two firm hands on the wheel, seldom letting her eyes off of the line before her. “It’s fun,” she said of plowing. “When you’re in town, you have a lot of limits. When you’re on the farm, you can do anything you want.” Some of Dowdall’s friends live on farms and, like her,

MONTAGUE TOWNSHIP – When it comes to keeping kids interested in farming and plowing, Almonte’s Doug Sturgess, president of the Lanark County Plowmen’s Association has a secret weapon – Mighty Mouse. She’s better known as Carleton Place’s Elizabeth Dowdall, 11, but it is on young men and women like her that he is pinning his hopes on keeping plowing and farming alive with the next generation. “If we want to keep it going, we have to get the kids involved,” said Sturgess, during a break in the Lanark County 4-H Plowing Club’s achievement competition on the morning of Friday, Aug. 19. The competition was part of the Lanark County Plowing Match on the farm of Montague Township Reeve Bill Dobson. The 4-H Club’s plowing competition made a return to the plowing match during last year’s event in Beckwith Township after an absence of several years.

want to be farmers themselves when they grow up. One friend especially wants to become a professional horseback rider, while one of her cousins keeps with the farming tradition of bartering, getting paid in bales of hay for some of her work. Dowdall was aware of the fact she was the youngest participant in the competition, but she did not let it slow her down, though she knew she was up against some triedand-true hands. “It’s kind of weird because everyone has more experience than you,” said Dowdall. “She’s learned a lot in a short time,” said Burgess. “I’ve got a lot of good coaches,” said Dowdall. The 4-H competition, which attracted young farmers from as far away as Pakenham and elsewhere in Lanark County, was overseen by International Plowing Match judge Allen Hills, who surveyed the work of Dowdall and her fellow competitors after the tractors had finished their runs. “The competition is with Photo by Desmond Devoy yourself as much as any- Austin Lloyd, 14, of Pakenham, tries his hand at cutting a furrow as his friends thing,” Hills told the youngwatch his progress. sters.

Lanark County Food Bank volunteers need more on their plates BY KATIE MULLIGAN

food bank will be cutting back its hours from 20 hours per week to 12. “The reason for the reduced hours is because heat and hydro costs have skyrocketed,” said Kennedy. Attempting to conserve by unplugging two refrigerators and being energy-wise did not seem to affect the bills, so the board of directors decided to change the hours to help cut down on costs. “We still have six freezers running all of the time,” said Kennedy, in order to keep food fresh.

Gardens and projects around the house aren’t the only things forgotten when vacationers leave town for a summer adventure. It is not uncommon for food bank shelves to be empty in the summer as travel plans and other summer events take attention away from the need for donations. “Things are very, very lean,” said Lanark County Food Bank executive director Nadine Kennedy. She said the organization doesn’t like to “cry poor,” so it is taking steps to stay in the spotlight during the summer months, CUTTING BACK including cutting back location hours and increasing its presence at local events to While the cutbacks mean the loraise cash donations.

Warden’s golf tourney a boost for hospice, United Way

It was a beautiful day on the links Friday, Aug. 5 as 144 golfers took part in the annual Warden’s Golf Tournament at the Perth Golf Club. This year, it was a chance to raise money for two local charities: Dignity House Hospice and Lanark County United Way. Last year, some $9,000 was raised for charity and this is the first time that the pot has been divided. “It’s a maximum turnout for the organizations that I’ve chosen and I’m thrilled with that,� said Lanark County Warden Sharon Mousseau, who toured the course on a golf cart with two clerks from the county office, Jennifer Solf and Joanne Brus. The warden wasn’t playing

golf, but rather thanking those who were by greeting them throughout the afternoon on the course. “The United Way has been a recipient for the past several years and they are an excellent organization as they fund so many local charities – it’s important to help them,â€? Mousseau said. “Dignity House ‌ it’s a wonderful group of folks trying to get a house in Lanark County, and to have that service close to home will be great.â€? The warden said that having Dignity House as one of the charities for this year’s proceeds would be a perfect opportunity to it the exposure needed and a financial boost at the same time. Stephanie Smart is on the board of directors for Dignity House Hospice. She too was thrilled with the

partnership this year. “It’s been wonderful to have the support of the warden and Lanark County and the recognition of county council,� Smart said, not to mention public support. “We are trying to open a resident(ial) hospice to service Lanark County,� she said. “We have many places in mind but we have to raise a substantial amount of money first.� The organization is seeking a centralized location and Perth is one of the favourable spots. “We have many places we are looking at, but Perth is centralized and we have a location in mind,� Smart said. “We are seeking the community

support and help from our local LHIN to make it happen.� The organization needs about $150,000 to go ahead with plans to build. It currently has about $30,000. Sarah Bridson, executive director at Lanark County’s United Way, also expressed her gratitude. “We are happy to be part of the event,� she said. “It’s a great partnership and we are thankful to have the support of so many people.�

Hockey dreams come true for CP junior skater Darian Kennedy gets to skate with Team Canada under-18 squad DESMOND DEVOY

CARLETON PLACE –The centre for the Carleton Place Cyclones got the opportunity of a lifetime when she took to the ice with the Team Canada women’s under 18 team last week. “It was an ‘Experience A Dream’, contest through Hockey Canada,” said proud dad Chris Kennedy of the experience of his daughter Darian Kennedy, 10. There were six lucky female hockey players between the ages of 10 and 16, who were selected to take part, and Darian was one of the lucky few who made her way to the Canadian International Hockey Academy in Rockland, Ont. The women’s under-18 team was taking part in a three-game series against the Team USA. Darian got to take part in on and off-ice practices as well as stand with the team on the blue line during the opening ceremonies and singing of O Canada, and The Star Spangled Banner, during the first game on Aug. 18. Darian said that while she enjoyed being on the ice with her hockey heroes, like captain Erin Ambrose, who took quite a shine to Darian, she came off the ice more exhausted than after a normal practice. “We got these sticks and tried to push our partner over and stand on one leg,” said Darian of the real-life hockey practices she got to experience. “It felt good. It was cool,” said Darian of her experience. “I was nervous.” Darian, who practices at least twice a week, would

love to be a professional hockey player herself when she grows up. She aspires to be on the Canadian women’s hockey team in the future, and her favourite hockey players are former Ottawa Senator Mike Fisher, and Team Canada’s Olympic medal-winning captain Hayley Wickenheiser. Her team has already won a silver medal at the Ontario Women’s Hockey Association championships in the Atom B league. The team made sure that she would always remember her time on the ice with Canada’s up-and-coming ice hockey talent. “They gave me a jersey and it was already signed,” said an excited Darian, who already has a spot set aside in her room to put it in a spot of honour. “We’ll have a hard time getting it off of her back,” joked Chris. “It will definitely not go into the wash,” he said, since Darian’s brother once got a jersey signed by the Ottawa 67’s. However, the jersey ended up in the wash, and the signatures, literally, went down the drain. Chris commended Hockey Canada for promoting such a program to get, and keep, young women interested in sports. “(They are) good role models for the kids,” said Chris. “It helps the girls.” Team Canada won the series, two games Photo by Heather Kennedy to one. Team USA won the first game, 3-2, Darien Kennedy, who plays centre for the Carleton Place Cyclones, makes but Canada took the next two games, winher way down the ice with her puck. ning game two 3 -2 and game three 6-4.

Valley Attack win bronze in provincials SUBMITTED The Ottawa Valley Attack fastball team has won a bronze medal in the provincial championship tournamemt. The NeilCorp Homes/West End Forming-sponsored girl’s squad is made up of players from several Ottawa Valley communities, including Almonte, Carleton Place, Pakenham and Arnprior. The team headed to St. Catharines to battle the top tier two teams in Ontario for the provincial championship. In five tightly contested games, the Attack fought their way back to a bronze medal in the double knockout event. In their first game against the Guelph Gators, they ran into a hot pitcher and came out on the losing end of a 3-1 pitching duel. Jean Cardona was solid for the Attack in the pitchers circle, but the offense never made it up to speed. Then in the losers bracket and one loss from going home, the girls had to dig deep. In their second game, the Attack faced the Bramalea Slam. The two evenly matched team battled until the last out before the Attack pulled off a game ending doubleplay. Offensively, Cardona, Tawny Godin, K. O’Connor and Maharaj

were all 2 for 3 and accounted for all five runs scored. In game three, the Valley girls played the Stratford Flames. In another pitcher’s duel Cardona came out on top 2-0. Game four was between the Attack and the host St. Catharines Storm. Another tight game had the Attack up 2-0 in the sixth inning before they finally blew it open for the 8-0 win. Now guaranteed a bronze medal they would face the Scarborough Rays for silver. Another tight game ensued between the two evenly matched teams, but this time it was the Attack who had runners on second and third in the seventh but failed to score losing 4-3. Cardona, who pitched all five games for the Attack and was the team’s top hitter on the weekend, was named provincial MVP. Tawny Godin was given honourable mention for being the only player to hit a home run over the 240-foot fence. After six tournaments, the Attack has claimed one gold and three bronze medals. The 51 games the team has played has produced a 38-win, nine-loss and four-tie record and first place in the Canada’s Capital Fastball League.

Primeau to speak about concussion awareness for Alzheimer’s Society Former Philadelphia Flyers captain will be keynote speaker at arena Sept. 26 ANDREW SNOOK

Concussions are serious issue in contact sports; few athletes know that better than Keith Primeau. Primeau had an impressive career in the National Hockey League. He played in the NHL from 1990-91 to 2005-06 for the Detroit Red Wings, Hartford Whalers, Carolina Hurricanes and the Philadelphia Flyers. His best offensive output came in the 2000-01 season with Philadelphia, when he scored 34 goals and 39 assists (73 points) in 71 games. He was the Flyers’ captain from 2001 to 2006. On Oct. 25, 2005, Primeau suffered his most serious head injury at the hands of Alexander Perezhogin, in a game against the Montreal Canadiens. He missed the remainder of the season and decided to retire at 34, due to lingering symptoms from the hit. Primeau, now 39, spends a great deal of his time these days trying to raise awareness about the dangers of concussions. On Monday, Sept. 26, he will be the key-

note speaker at the Alzheimer Society of Lanark County’s Concussion Awareness and Safety Lecture and Dinner at the Smiths Falls Memorial Community Centre. “We’re looking forward to hearing about what he has to say about his personal experiences,” said Jamie Bannon, public education co-ordinator for Alzheimer Society of Lanark County. “We’re encouraging any age group, youth (to attend). It doesn’t have to be hockey. Anyone involved in sporting activities are prone to concussions and just recognizing the signs.” Dr. Michelle Keightley will also be speaking at the lecture. Keightley is a professor of occupation science and occupational therapy at the University of Toronto. She is also the head of BrainFit Labs in Toronto. Keightley will be discussing the impact concussions have on people’s brains, how to recognize concussion signs and symptoms, prevention tips and how to judge whether or not a player is fit to return to play after a concussion. Tickets for the event are $25 for adults or $20 for students (16 and younger). It includes dinner and a chance to have a photo taken with Primeau. “He’s a celebrity, but he comes with an important message,” Bannon said. To register or for more information, contact the Alzheimer Society of Lanark County at 613-264-0307, 1-800-511-1911 or email

Attending a neighbours’ barbecue one evening in Pakenham, Ray Holland called to tell me that he counted five common nighthawks flying above them. By 8 p.m., 54 nighthawks were overhead, plus more than 30 ring-billed gulls. The nighthawks flew low, and presented good views for the watchers.

Two weeks ago, a friend told me a story about taking her two grandchildren, aged 8 years and 11 years, fishing on Christie Lake. As they started to fish, standing on a large rock near shore stood a young osprey. Overhead, two or three other osprey were flying and calling. The youngster was not bothered by the humans watching it, and it stayed on the rock. Obviously, no fish were caught. As well, a great blue heron flew by the fishing group.

Genealogical information available in area ROSE MARY SARSFIELD, Lanark County Genealogical Society

Summertime is generally a busy time for genealogists, as they take the opportunity to travel to areas where their ancestors lived and worked. For those whose interest lies in Lanark County, some important resources are available. People are welcome to visit two important sources of information run by the Lanark County Genealogical Society. Archives Lanark is located at 1920 Concession 7 Drummond Township in Drummond Centre, just off Hwy. 7 between Innisville and Perth.

The Archives is open Fridays and Saturdays from June to end of September from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Volunteers are available to help you peruse through the Lanark County Land Registry Abstract Books and Land Deeds dating from 1868 to 1955. There are local cemetery listings, census records, early church records of baptisms and marriages. Scrapbooks of newspaper clippings compliment the original Almonte Gazettes from 1920-1980. There are as well published indexes of the Almonte Gazette, Perth Courier and Lanark Era. Also as part of the collection

are several Tweedsmuir Histories compiled by the local Women’s Institutes over many years. Many other sources as well are waiting for you. As well our current book on the Rural Schools of North Elmsley is available for purchase. The second source of information is the Lanark County Genealogical Society Library housed in the Heritage House Museum, 11 Old Sly’s Rd. in Smiths Falls. This facility is open May 1 to Dec. 23 daily from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. A $2 research pass gives access to the library for a year. The library contains many transcripts of cemeteries, church records and many donated family histories.

Just inside the main entrance of the C.R. Gamble Funeral Home is a book of remembrance. Each day we turn a page in the book. The names of those we have served are inscribed on that date along with the year in which they passed away. It is our way of honouring and remembering a life that was lived. It is also our

way of saying “thank you” to the many families who have shown confidence in us since we came to Almonte in 1973. Some families are unable to visit this book on the anniversary of the death of those they love. For this reason we are proud to publish these names weekly as our way of saying...“We Remember”.

Family-owned garage celebrates 50th anniversary DESMOND DEVOY

ALMONTE – The banks are probably wishing they’d backed the Munro family now. Back in 1961, Carmen ‘Pete’ Munro, a mechanic in Almonte, set out to start up his own company, Munro’s Service Centre. “The bank wouldn’t lend him the money,� remembered his son, Roy Munro, who was six years old that year, and who now co-runs the outfit with his brother Brent. “They didn’t think it would go out here in the country. They (family) had to get the money privately.� Time, thousands of customers and many tune-ups later have proven the banks wrong. “It’s not something that too many people manage,� said Roy. “Fifty years later, we’re still floating.� To say that vehicles have been the family business would be an understatement. “He decided to work for himself and built this place that summer,� said Roy. “There was a two-bedroom apartment upstairs and for seven years, we lived above the

You can usually find Roy and Brent Munro working away under the hood of a car or truck at Munro’s Service Centre, on County Road 29, just north of Almonte. The shop will celebrate its 50th anniversary on Sept. 1. cars,� said Roy. “We always had some kind of motorized vehicle as a kid.� Back in the early days, there were many cars that went up on Munro’s hoists that would now be considered classics, such as ’57 Chevys and cars from the

garage.� It was not a major change of scenery for the family to live above the garage on County Road 29, because they had lived above a garage in Almonte as well. “It’s all we’ve ever known was

station for 34 years, and people still refer to it as Munro’s Esso, though they have since switched to Stinson. “It was a landmark, Munro’s Esso,â€? said Roy. The cars have changed over the years, as have the faces of the men working under their hoods. More than 30 mechanics have worked at the garage since the ‘60s, but one mechanic, Tommy Lee, has been employed with the firm for more than 40 years. “It’s the only place he’s ever worked,â€? said Roy. “He came here right out of high school. He’s like family.â€? Their father passed away 16 years ago this fall, and now, unless they are bought out, the shop may close when they retire. “We have kids, but they are not into this,â€? said Roy. “They want to get the big bucks ‌They don’t want to get their hands dirty. The only hope we have is grandkids.â€? Customers and well-wishers are invited to drop by the service centre on Friday, Sept. 2, for coffee and cake, from midmorning until mid-afternoon for a customer appreciation day.

early ‘50s. “It was a lot simpler to work on them back then,� said Roy. “There was more space to work on them.� “A lot of stuff went through those doors in 50 years,� agreed Brent. “We worked on all kinds of cars.� While cars and trucks are their main bread-and-butter these days, in the early days, Pete Munro had to be proficient in fixing farm equipment. “We used to go to farms and do welding on farm machinery,� said Roy. Back in 1961, any car that rolled in to Munro’s had most likely rolled off of the assembly line at one of the big three automakers in Detroit. Now, it’s just as likely to be a car from Japan. “There were no Japanese cars back then,� said Roy. Both Roy and Brent started working for their dad full time when they were teenagers. “He was the only boss we ever had,� said Roy. “You had to work harder, longer hours, seven days a week,� and closing time was often not until 10 p.m. Another change is that Munro’s used to be an Esso service O

PAKENHAM - It was a happy ending for Johanne Labelle of Pakenham, as she saw a member of her online community for German shepherd lovers rally behind a member with a sick dog. The dog, named Kain, who lives with his owner in Ohio, caught a contagious disease called parvo. After the owner returned from the vet, she posted that she was between a rock and a hard place – she didn’t have enough money to pay for the necessary treatment for the 5-month-old puppy, and asked for some home remedies to try. Labelle’s Facebook group, called Everything German Shepherd, has over 6,000 members – who rallied together to raise the necessary funds and directly pay



for Kain’s vet treatments. Kain made it home from the hospital Tuesday, much to the delight of the many donors, from all over the world, who banded together to help the puppy. “It was a story that was just crazy, the electricity was in the air just to save that puppy and get him in the hospital before he died,” Labelle said. It was a great moment for Labelle – who has six dogs of her own, five of which are German shepherds. She didn’t imagine that starting an online page slightly over a year ago, would save a dog’s life. Because medical care for pets is often not cheap, the group decided to to raise funds, and sell tshirts through Labelle’s website, in order to create an emergency fund for German shepherds who may need the same financial help in the future.

Motorcycle ride raises $3,000 for cat rescue SAM COOLEY

This year’s award is “Little Jack.” He is a hand carved sculpture by Daniel Kuryliak, a former motorcycle rider from Ottawa. Daniel also has a rescue cat named Katie. The award went to Lori Cooke of Orleans for raising $2,070.

“This year she campaigned hard,” said Bryerton, “Last year she came close to $1,400, and she did that by cooking cheescakes for over nine months.” Bryerton explained the origins of the event. For 30 years Bryerton and her husband rode alone. “I figured it was a fun way to raise money,” she said. When she got the idea to host the ride for homeless cats, she realized how much support was willingly given by other riders in the area. On Aug. 14 Frances Bryerton and her husband, Al, were riding to Brockville along with 26 other bikers, and all for one goal.

ALMONTE – More than $3,000 was raised for the Country Cat Sanctuary Sunday, Aug. 14 in the second annual Motorcycle Ride for Rescue Cats. In the coming days leading up to the event, the organizers were fearing the worst because of the weather forecast. “Nobody likes to ride in the rain,” said Fran Bryerton. Last year’s event did not go as planned because of the weather. Luckily for the 28 motorcycles who participated, the weather held out for them on their ride to Brockville. The riders, who contributed at least $20 each, came from a variety of places. “Some rode very far to come here on a not so great day,” said The Municipalities of Beckwith, Carleton Bryerton. “True cat lovers.” Place, Drummond/North Elmsley, Lanark Just like last year, the ride Highlands, Mississippi Mills, Montague, started in the parking lot outside Perth, Smiths Falls Tay Valley ask you to of Levi Home Hardware in AlCALL 9-1-1. monte.

Murder, magic, music and mayhem featured in upcoming Mudds season JUDITH SCOTT Mississippi Mudds

Plots are being hatched and plans are being laid in coffee shops, living rooms, meeting rooms and back yards all over Carleton Place. A new season is under construction for the Mississippi Mudds community theatre troupe and all indications are that with four new productions, from Lewis Carroll to William Shakespeare, W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan to Michael Frayn, there will be something to please and entertain all ages and all tastes. For the Halloween season comes Macbeth. A group of 15 young actors, members of the Mudds youth Theatre has been rehearsing all through the summer to bring you this classic tale of ambition, betrayal and madness. They will present this production in the round, on the floor of the Carleton Place Town Hall, using Shakespeare’s original language. Director Mark Piper notes “the story of Macbeth is written

in blood, murderous passion, violence, deceit and occult terror, and while suitable for adults, most teenagers and near teens, it is not recommended for young children.” The play runs for just two performances on Oct. 21 and 22 at 7 p.m. Children and adults of all ages will not want to miss our pre-Christmas presentation of Alice In Wonderland. This production has all the main ingredients for what director Meredith Millman dubs a not-to-be-missed family entertainment. Join Alice down the rabbit hole for her adventures based on Lewis Carroll’s masterpiece. In this adaptation from Jasper Publishing written by Kate Parry and Karen Dolan-Smith, we meet the Red Queen, Mad Hatter, Dormouse, and White Rabbit as well as traditional English panto favourites such as Gladys the “Dame” and Billy the faithful comedic friend. As well as the entertaining story, this production is full of popular songs, under the music direction of Laurel Tye. There will be four evening

performances and two matinees over two weekends from Dec. 2 to 10. Into 2012, a second family treat, is in store, as the Mudds Youth Theatre, by permission of Music Theatre International, presents Pirates of Penzance (Junior) to brighten the winter with music and laughter. One of the most popular musical plays from Gilbert and Sullivan, it is as wacky, irreverent and entertaining today as when it first opened in 1879. Director Sandra Dunlop will be working with music director Laurel Tye and a cast of youth from eight to 18 years old to spin this hilarious farce of sentimental pirates, bumbling policemen, dim-witted young lovers, dewy-eyed daughters and an eccentric major-general, all morally bound to the often ridiculous dictates of duty and honour. Three evening shows and two matinees are scheduled between Feb. 24 and March 3. We round up our regular season at the Town Hall with Noises Off, an outstanding farce by Michael Frayn presented by

Young actors listen intently as director Mark Piper explains a scene from the Mississippi Mudds Youth production of Macbeth. permission of Samuel French. Director Brian McManus calls it a tour de force full of stock characters, cliché situations and a dynamic set; a relentless comedy with characters stamping in and out of doors, voices rising and trousers falling. Four evening shows and one matinee are scheduled from April 27 to May 5. Tickets for all the shows will be sold through Arts Carleton

Place, 132 Coleman St. Our season brochure is ready for pick up there. A special thank you to the Town of Carleton Place, the BIA, Nancy’s Impressions, Just Knitting, Saje Spa and Wellness, Ballygiblin’s, The Thirsty Moose and St James Gate for helping to kick off our season.

DANCING QUEENS The North Lanark Highland Games dance competition was held on Saturday, Aug 20 in Almonte. Competitors travelled from all throughout the province to compete in the event, which had primary, beginner, intermediate and premier divisions. It looked like giant rain clouds were going to swoop in several times, but Celtic luck prevailed and the dancers stayed relatively dry. Above, Victoria Nichols of Carleton Place strikes a pose while dancing her fling in one of the first rounds of the dance competition. Right, from left, Samatha Beliveau, MackKenzie Stapledon and Victoria Nichols warm up before performing in the beginner 9-andunder division.
