You don’t have to walk alone

The Japanese home stay students say goodbye in a very cultural way to Carleton Place, after a great stay in Lanark County. 2

First annual suicide awareness walk planned for Sept. 10 DESMOND DEVOY

CARLETON PLACE – You’ll never have to walk alone. Even if you’re grieving the loss of someone from suicide or substance abuse, on Sept. 10, during the Brett Pearson Run for your Life, you can join with other families who have experienced similar pain and loss. You will know that you do not have to be on a lonely journey. “The day after I was told, I had to pinch myself,” said Nicole Pearson, who lost her son Brett to suicide on Nov. 20, 2006. “I said, ‘Is this really happening?’ I always said that Brett would leave his mark in the community.” Along with her late son’s bright smile, he was always more than willing to give a helping hand, something she wanted to continue on in her son’s memory. “He’s not here physically to do that. As long as the good Lord gives me strength to do this, I’ll keep doing it,” said Pearson. See ‘WALK’, page 7

Japanese students say Sayonara to Lanark County BY DESMOND DEVOY CARLETON PLACE – English immersion students from Risumeikan Uji High School in Kyoto, Japan bid farewell to their host families and to Carleton Place High School on the evening of Monday, Aug. 29, with a party that included Canadian catering favourites, and Japanese culinary delights, followed by a beautiful display of Japanese dancing. The students, dressed up in traditional Japanese costumes, were also presented with certificates of completion.

The students, who have been residing with billet families in Carleton Place, Perth, Smiths Falls, Beckwith Township, Almonte and elsewhere, took part in studies at CPHS for the past two weeks and enjoyed everything from trips to Parliament Hill, the sugar bush, to savouring Tim Hortons. Host families also took the kids on separate outings to bowling, the North Lanark Highland Games in Almonte and Fort Henry in Kingston. After their stay in Lanark County, they journeyed to Toronto and Niagara Falls before returning home to Japan on Friday, Sept. 2.

Above, female students, dressed up in traditional Japanese attire, lined up on either side of the crowd on the hill behind Carleton Place High School, to lead off a dance based on a popular anime figure.

The class was visited by two members of the Shabot Obaadjiwan First Nations in Sharbot Lake, Kimiwan “Jo-Anne” Thomas and her sister, Heather Dawson, for a cultural sharing afternoon. The students were shown a variety of cultural items that Thomas and Dawson brought in, and made dreamcatchers to take home. Photo by Brier Dodge


Water protection groups grapple with chemical reality of everyday life

When it comes to worrying about what goes down the drain and into our rivers and streams, members of a local water protection committee took a long hard look in the mirror last week and realized that change starts with them. “The guy who dumps paint down his basement sink says, ‘Oh, I only do it once a month,’” said board member Pieter Leenhouts. “I’m protecting everyone against me because I used to do it (dumping paint). Now, I don’t do it because I know.” Leenhouts was speaking during the Mississippi-Rideau Source Protection Committee meeting at the Almonte and District Community Centre on Thursday, Aug. 4. Others at the meeting admitted that, since they have started their work on making drinking water even more safe, they have begun looking at their own everyday practices. “I know my husband is taking his truck out to a place in the back 40 acres (for repair),” said Allison Gibbons. “What precautions is he (the repair shop owner) making for his own (drinking) well?” During a presentation to the committee, Gibbons pointed out that organic solvents can be found in paints, adhesives, cleaning agents, dyes, plastics, printing inks, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. “Even if you didn’t intend to put it

in there, it’s in there as part of the production process,” said Gibbons. “(But) the trace quantities found in cosmetics would not be enough to contaminate drinking water. It has to be in its pure form…We all paint our houses, they are very hard to get away from.” Gibbons gave a technical explanation of just one of the many types of liquids that can cause havoc in a river or stream, specifically, dense non-aqueous phase liquid (DNAPL). “It is a completely different animal from…things that dissolve in water or float on water,” said Gibbons. These types of liquids also tend to sink to the bottom of surface water where water treatment intake pipes are usually located. They also require conventional clean-up methods and will sink until it can sink no further. This is a problem since “we have lots of fractured bed rock in this area,” said Gibbons. DNAPL’s were recognized as a water contaminant in 1970 and Gibbons’ pointed to the Carp landfill as a DNAPL threat area. She also noted that there were 16 existing DNAPL threat locations in the area, including: • Nine dry cleaners. • One boat-building firm. • Three electric power stations. • One wood product manufacturing plant. • One electronic/precision equipment repair plant. “I think we’re seeing a lot of prohibitions in our future,” said Gibbons. “(But)

I haven’t heard of anyone prohibiting existing businesses.” However, there has been talk of prohibiting future businesses that handle such chemicals from setting up shop in environmentally sensitive areas. “Maybe concentrate these nasties in one area, like a business park?” wondered board member George Braithwaite. “It takes a long time to turn a ship of this size.” While he wanted to see drinking water protected, Braithwaite noted that some ideas are impractical for regulating businesses. “You’ve got an established business here and now. We don’t want to decimate it,” said Braithwaite. Mississippi Mills town councillors Duncan Abbott and Alex Gillis had been in attendance at the meeting and pointed out to chairwoman Janet Stavinga that the Almonte Business Park is within a wetland protection area. “We don’t want to be in the business of putting people out of business,” said Gibbons. Other board members pointed out that some businesses that use chemicals are subject to inspections and audits like dry cleaners while other likely have no on-site checks by regulators. “Prohibition is impossible. You can’t stop shampoo from going down the drain,” said board member Mark Burnham, pointing out that there are trace amounts of chemicals in many household products.

School buses hit the roads on Tuesday BRIER DODGE

The wheels on the bus will be going round and round the county as students prepare to go back to school and board the buses on Sept. 6. That means safety is essential for students, parents, and drivers. The OPP issued a reminder about bus safety, and will have officers out making sure motorists remember the rules of the road – especially when it comes to school buses. The Highway Traffic Act says that every driver that meets a stopped school bus (excluding roads with a median strip) with red signal lights flashing must stop before reaching the bus and wait until the bus moves, or the red signal lights stop flashing. The fine for failing to stop for a school bus is $400, accompanied

by a victim surcharge of $90. Some school zones also have reduced speed limits, which carry increased fines for speeders. “Town Line Road has always been a monitored zone because it’s a throughway in town, in the past it’s been a primary concern of ours,” said Const. Sean Trahan of the Carleton Place OPP. “It’s not to say we’re having problems, but we have received complaints in the past and we do enforcement in that area.” Trahan also said that the OPP follow up on complaints from school bus drivers, who try and note drivers and licence plates of cars that speed past when they are stopped, usually when children are boarding or getting off the bus. The Student Transportation of Eastern Ontario (STEO) also launched a new service this year that allows parents and students to easily check on students’

route numbers, bus contractors, stop location, pickup and dropoff times. The site will also show bus cancellations, and information to contact the bus contractor. Students in the Catholic board can visit and click on transportation, followed by routes and stops, then parent login. Parents will need their child’s student number, which can be found on their last report card. For students in the public

board, they can access the same service at under the transportation tab, then by clicking on “Bus Stop Finder”. Phone lines are still set up, at 1-800-443-4562 for the Catholic board, and 1-866-286-7521 set up until Sept. 30 for the public board. Rebecca Timmons, age 4, will start senior kindergarten at Holy Name of Mary in September. She took the bus last year, and looked forward to sitting

with her older assigned bus buddy – and watching out the bus windows. She said it was important to wait for the bus to come to a stop before she crosses the road, to wait for the cars to stop for her and her friends. “Don’t stand, don’t eat or drink,” Rebecca said are her top tips for junior kindergarten students to stay safe when they start taking the bus. “And when the bus driver is driving, don’t get off.”

A taste of life on the farm for 20 city kids

ASHTON - Visiting the Experimental Farm in Ottawa, and visiting the Alpenblick Farm in Ashton were two totally different experiences for a group of 20 Glebe youth who attended the food and farm camp last week. The biggest difference, the kids said, was being able to get up close with the animals – who roamed around them, ate their leftovers, and poked their noses into their campfire circle. “At the end of the camp, I have to say, ‘I have to send you home,’” said Alpenblick Farm owner Robert Oechsli. “I can’t keep you, it’s the law.” Oechsli runs the farm with his wife, Petra Stevenson. The Swiss-born farmer opened the farm in 1968, and quickly switched to an all-organic farm in 1972, long before any others in the Ottawa area. “People asked, what do you spray on your vegetables to make them organic?” he said. “I tell them, ‘nothing.’” As one of the first organic farms, Oechsli was quick to get involved in many community projects and groups, such as the City of Ottawa’s agricultural tourism program, and Savour Ottawa. Through word of mouth, he became well known for his willingness to help others get involved in growing, eating and purchasing local foods. Five years ago he received a call from the Glebe Community Centre, asking if a group of campers could come out to the farm for an afternoon. “Well, that afternoon turned into a full camp,” he said. Stephanie Stewart, food co-ordinator at the Glebe Community Centre, which runs the Glebe Neighbourhood Activities Group (GNAG), turned one of her food programs and camps into a full food and farm week. The camp runs two days in the Glebe, before heading out for three days and two nights to the Alpenblick Farm.

Campers sleep in tents, nestled right next to the woods and near a sink and outdoor washing station the farm has set up, close to a campfire they gather around. They are able to connect with the animals on the farm, and learn about farming practices. On Thursday, campers were picking vegetables from the garden to bring back to Stewart to put in the soup they were eating for lunch. For dinner, they had roasts, right from the farm, on the menu. The topic of milking cows re-occurred with the campers, who milked goats on Wednesday night, and were anxious for their lesson on milking cows later in the day from Oechsli. While eating locally purchased vegetables and breads were familiar topics for the kids, not as many had experience with local beef and pork. The interaction with the animals was a Photo by Brier Dodge hit though, as Presley, the miniature pony, weaved in and out the campfire, sneaking Alexander Hermosa, Chloe Forbes and Kai Herzog-Hara show off odd bits of the campers’ muffins. freshly picked vegetables from the organic farm, ready to put right They were also anxious to talk about into their soup for lunch.

British master baker makes mark on blueberry social Left, Jane Williamson, a master baker from Kent, England, visiting her friend Glennis Hardwig, lent her culinary skills to the mix at the Blueberry Social at Union Hall on Sunday, Aug. 28.

UNION HALL – If the blueberry tart that you enjoyed at the blueberry social this weekend tasted especially good, you have Jane Williamson to thank. Almost every summer for several years, Williamson, who calls Kent County in England home, comes over to visit her lifelong friend Glennis Hardwig in Mississippi Mills. To Hardwig, Williamson is a friend first and foremost, but the occasion of the annual blueberry tea and social, held this past Sunday, Aug. 28 at Union Hall, it also helped that Williamson is a master baker, who learned her craft at her father’s knee. At the age of three, she was learning how to stuff jam into doughnuts – some-

thing any Canadian can appreciate – and she was enjoying learning the family trade. Then, at the age of 21, her father died, leaving her with a major dilemma. Sell the shop or try to make it in the maledominated British baking world. With her mother’s help minding the books, Williamson was up with the lark making bread. She ran the shop for four years until she got married and had a child. With an infant keeping her up most of the night, and then having to be in the bakery in the wee hours with another form that would not wait – bread – she decided to leave the baking world and devote herself to her child. It was a difficult decision that many women have had to grapple with. But the bakery never left her, and this past weekend, the blueberry social’s whipped cream and custard blueberry tarts were the beneficiary of one Englishwoman’s bakery expertise, seeing the fruits of her hard-won labours.

It’s a chance to grieve together.” Pearson hopes that the event will bring together enough people from all over Lanark County to form a suicide survivor support group. “Now we have that common ground,” she said. “We’re not all alone.

pating in my presentations) took such a weight off my shoulders,” said Pearson. “I’m not a mental health professional. I speak from the heart.” She now has Open Doors counselors, as well as members of the Ontario Provincial Police, accompany her on school visits. Before they came on the scene, she would place follow up phone calls to the schools to see how the kids were coping, and if any of them had come forward seeking help. Brian Turner, chair of the Carleton Place Drug Strategy Committee, agrees that more needs to be done to get the issue out in the open. “Nobody is talking about it enough,” said Turner. “It’s to make people stop and think…almost everyone in the community has been touched by it.” Turner noted that the reason why more people do not come forward to deal with mental health issues is because of the stigma that is still attached to it. “They assume it’s all in your head,” said Turner. “It’s a disease. It’s an injury, and until we look at it that way, the situation

will remain the same.” While people may not want to talk about suicide, people can sometimes look at substance abuse in a somewhat skewed way, even joking about it. “As adults, we tend to look at the past with rose-coloured glasses,” said Turner of some adults’ memories of drinking and experimenting with drugs when they were younger. Funds raised during the walk will go towards the Kids Help Phone (1-800-6686868) or, and the organization has promised that the money raised here will stay here to help local kids.

From front page “This event is about him and who he was.” In the lead up to the run next week, with the posters that have been placed in the front windows of area businesses by the Carleton Place Municipal Drug Strategy Committee, Pearson has enjoyed seeing her son all over town, so to speak. “For me to have Brett all over, it’s like he’s still here,” she said. “I look at him (on the poster) and I say, ‘Brett, I can’t believe we’re doing this.’” “I’ll be sad when those posters come down,” she said with a small laugh. The Brett Pearson Run for your Life takes place on Saturday, Sept. 10, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., starting at Carleton Place High School, 215 Lake Ave. W. The opening ceremonies begin with speeches at 9 a.m. Yellow balloons of hope will be released at 10 a.m. in honour of the family and friends who have lost loved ones to suicide, after which there will be a parade of life from CPHS to the Trans-Canada Trail near the intersection of Kavanagh Road and McNeely Avenue. The balloons will be released by “all family members that have lost a friend or family member through suicide or substance abuse.” The survivors will be asked to write the person’s name on the yellow balloons on top of any messages they have to send.

Helping kids play the game we love BRIER DODGE Through Bri’s Eyes


hat headline is great advice from the Ontario Federation of Agriculture, (OFA). Found in an OFA press release about what the agricultural sector should be doing to ensure they do not get left behind during this coming provincial election, the slogan is about as basic as you can get. Citing, that on the one hand, the agricultural sector is manned by only 1 per cent of Ontario’s population yet generates more than 700,000 jobs and contributes $33 billion to the provincial economy, it is an industry that has to be paid attention to. According to the OFA, politicians should be dealing with five key election issues that have been identified by the organization’s policy advisory council as having an impact on the agricultural sector. They are: environmental stewardship, rural infrastructure, energy policies, risk management programs and regulatory reform. All of the issues are as familiar to urban voters as to rural ones. The only addition could be more efficient and transparent government. While the populations of some far away countries have to find a gun to make sure their voices are heard all we have to do is speak up. You do not always get what you want but you just might get what you need. You have to ask for it. There is a chance that this time around the average voter will see through all of the slick marketing and political framing that has given politics and politicians a bad name. If the questions that are asked are clear and meaningful then the answers whenever possible should be the same. Let’s see what happens this time. There will be a full slate of candidates made up of a few excellent incumbents and some interesting newcomers. With the dire predictions about the state of the national and provincial economy ringing in our ears, do not expect too much vote buying to go on. This election may be all about keeping the status quo for a few more years until a more stable global economic landscape appears. The antidote to an election that changes nothing but affects everything, is when voters take the time to ask questions. All of the candidates are ready and able to answer just about anything you could ask. With any luck we will not have read between the lines to see who our next group of leaders

I can’t say that I’ve been surprised, but it’s been nice this week to see how much the community supports kids in sports, regardless of the cost. It’s no surprise that hockey is a pricy sport, so it was unfortunate to hear that the Carleton Place Minor Hockey Association had lost their JumpStart funding. They are now in a bit of a pinch, trying to figure out how to make sure they can still fund every child that wants to be able to play hockey. I don’t think you’d see that in more urban associations – if you can’t afford a pricy sport, don’t sign up. You wouldn’t see as many concerned parents, worried whether every child on their son or daughter’s team from the year before could afford to come back. But it’s important in the local community that if a girl or boy wants to play hockey, it can be made accessible for her or him, and a local sponsorship to raise replacement funds has already started. For the first year, kids are also able to access a free equipment program – which is run through an urban-based association before I get ahead of myself – the Ottawa District Minor Hockey Association (ODMHA). Parents are able to drop off used, outgrown equipment to Canadian Tire stores in Kanata and Perth, and interested children are able to go and meet with someone from the ODMHA to set them up. Individual children in the Upper Canada school board can also be funded by the Champions for Kids program, for activities – and not just for hockey. This really makes it seem that if a kid wants to play, they are going to be able to, regardless of financial situations. Somewhere down the road, we could read about the next NHL star to come out of Carleton Place or Almonte – and they may have been many community helping hands along the way.

Teen falls five metres from rock face in Almonte Teen, friend were scaling rock near Brian J. Gallagher Generating Station


ALMONTE – A 16-year-old boy from Carleton Place fell five metres (15 feet) from a rock face the morning of Aug. 24, badly injuring his face and chest. “They were scaling the rocks,” said eyewitness Shelley Thompson of the victim, who was climbing the rock face with a male friend. “They were about three-fourths of the way up and he just lost his footing.” Thompson and her boyfriend were admiring the view near the Brian J. Gallagher Generating Station in Almonte, when she saw the events unfold. “We were over by the hydro plant and I just happened to turn around as he fell,” said Thompson, who was the first to call 911 for help, while her boyfriend tried to climb down to offer assistance in the interim. “It took his buddy two, three minutes to climb down (to help him),” said Thompson. All the while, she was calling out to the injured boy not to move as he lay at the bottom of the rock face, on a strip of land beside the east bank of the Mississippi River.

“(He hit) the side of his face and his chest took the brunt of it,” said Thompson. “He had blood all down the side of his face.” The OPP, Lanark County ambulance service and Mississippi Mills fire department were all on hand. Paramedics tended to the teenager, before he was lifted out from the river bank on a stretcher, and transported to hospital by ambulance. Mississippi Mills fire Chief Art Brown received the call for assistance from the ambulance service at around 11 a.m. “He was climbing down the rocks,” said Brown. “He just slipped. A rock gave out on him, he said.” A long ladder was extended out to the middle of the river, resting on a rock, for the stretcher to be placed on it and pulled up on to dry land. Brown stated that the incident is a reminder to people to be cautious when out in nature. “They shouldn’t have been in there in the first place,” Brown said of the boys’ exploits. The teen was taken by ambulance to the Almonte General Hospital with what OPP described as “minor injuries.”

Above, a stretcher is placed on an extended ladder, as a makeshift rail, to get the injured teen across the Mississippi River before being transported to hospital.

Minor hockey news BRIER DODGE

CARLETON PLACE/MISSISSIPPI MILLS - It’s time to get the skates sharpened, as minor hockey season is just around the corner. Players are starting to rush around to find equipment that fits, and try and convince mom and dad to purchase that new stick. Parents of five-year-old players, born in 2006, will be able to take advantage of the Chevrolet Hockey Helmet Program this year provides every player in the age group with a free Bauer hockey helmet. Once parents have registered their child for minor hockey, they can visit www. to sign-up for the program. This is available to players at any Hockey Canada registered club, which include both the Almonte Pakenham Minor Hockey Association (APMHA) and the Carleton Place Minor Hockey Association (CPMHA). The Ottawa District Hockey Association, which both the APMHA and CPMHA are part of, partnered with Canadian Tire and the Ottawa Senators to run the Equipment for Kids program, for additional equipment for all ages. Families who may not be able to afford new hockey equipment are eligible for the program, which includes skates and goalie equipment. Canadian Tire has collected the used equipment, but is still collecting at the Canadian Tire locations in Kanata and Perth. The Ottawa District Hockey Association then clean and sort the equipment for re-distribution. Any families wishing to contact the Equipment for Kids program can call Richard Sennott of the ODHA at 613-224-7686 or Matthew Wason of the Ottawa Senators at 613-599-0156. Players in the APMHA initiation level, 4-6 years old,

have access to subsidies and grants. The APMHA received the RBC Grant for the 2011-2012 hockey season, which gives five grants of $375. Eligibility depends on the number of applicants, but the main purpose of the grant is to let kids without the financial means to otherwise register get involved, and is based on income. For more information on initiation level APMHA grants, contact David Ireland at CP TO BENEFIT FROM CANADIANS’ GOALS The Carleton Place Canadians have recently announced a sponsorship with Direct Energy.

we’re trying to get bodies” The league will run for nine to 10 weeks, and hopefully enjoy a second spring run, before the start of the soccer season. O’Keefe rented out the Beckwith facilities last year, after enjoying touch football games in his backyard with his sons and friends. “It was absolutely gorgeous,” he said. “It was just a blast, so much fun.” The league is taking registration forms, which can be downloaded online at or picked up at the Beckwith Township municipal office. Any questions can be sent to BRO. “I’ve always missed going out to do the leagues,” O’Keefe said. “It’s a lot of exercise – and it can fit any build.”

BECKWITH – Touch football will be in Beckwith this fall, as long as enough interested players sign up. “This is new to the area with the town expanding, we’re getting some recreational diversity,” said Carroll O’Keefe, one of the league organizers. “I’ve been involved in football for many years myself; it’s something I really believe in.” The league has been slow to start, and organizers have pushed forward the draft night by a week to Sept. 7 in the hopes of recruiting more players. Organizers hope to run two leagues, one for high school aged players, and one for adults – both male and female. Unfortunately, registration has been slow for the new, recreational league. O’Keefe hopes that registration will pick up in the next week, especially for the adult division. Touch football is much gentler than full contact, and the Beckwith turf field is designed to minimize the impact on joints – so the sport is a great way for adults to get necessary exercise, and take advantage of the community facilities. “If you’re not a tackle player, come and throw a football around where you’re not going to get tackled,” he said. With the Beckwith Field, the minor football association has grown leaps and

The hope is the program will run Sunday mornings and Wednesday and Thursday nights, but it may shuffle based on numbers.

The strictly recreational league costs $90 and includes a team shirt, O’Keefe said. “Down the road I hope to have a couple divisions, a few recreational and a few competitive teams,” he said. “Right now,

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.”

Touch football league looks to Beckwith


Victim Services seeks volunteers LAURIE WEIR

Victim Services of Lanark County is looking for volunteers. This community-based organization is a crisis response service to help victims of trauma get through their ordeals. The organization provides a variety of services to people affected by crime, tragic circumstances and disaster. Twice annually, the organization trains new recruits, often getting as many as 15 to 20 new volunteers at a time. “We provide 40 hours of training,” said

Real Estate Business Law Wills & Estates Environmental Law

executive director Margaret Lapensee, who is based in Smiths Falls. “There is a screening process and an interview stage before training begins. There is no cost to the volunteer. Training is slated to begin Saturday, Sept. 24 and “two or three Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.” Thursday’s training schedule is from 6 to 9:30 p.m. Volunteers are asked for a oneyear commitment. They are also required to be able to provide one 12-hour shift per month. “We have a good mix of people who are volunteers,” said Lapensee. “We have people in their early 20s through to 70s… and all walks

of life. Our volunteers are phenomenal.” Victim Services works in partnership with local police services in Perth, Smiths Falls, and the Ontario Provincial Police in Lanark County. They also work with fire services. Based on the concept of ‘neighbours helping neighbours’, Victim Services is a member of the Ontario Network of Victim Service Providers. They work alongside the Children’s Aid Societies of Lanark County and Smiths Falls; Lanark Interval House, Lanark County Mental Health, Lanark County Sexual Assault/Domestic Violence Program of Perth and Smiths Falls district Hospital; Masonic Lodge #504, Open Doors for Lanark Children and Youth, the Men’s Project and Victim Witness Assistance Program.

“We are mandated to provide immediate, on-scene, short-term, and in-office support, 24/7, 365 days per year,” said Lapensee. Many volunteers have had experience needing help during a traumatic situation, like domestic violence. “Some just want the opportunity to give back to their community… to help someone else who has been affected by a tragic circumstance.” Many of the calls for service are to offer help to victims of domestic violence. Training for new recruits comes from a variety of sources, like police officers, shelter workers, Red Cross volunteers and others. For more information, or to volunteer, call 613-284-8380 or visit

All donations at the door will go towards the United Way’s Youth Initiatives in Lanark County, supporting the five youth centred member agencies. “This is an excellent opportunity for the county to see what our youth member agencies in each town are doing for the young people in their communities”, notes Sarah Bridson, executive director of the United Way. “All five will be helping out at the auditions and at the final show, and will have information available at the finale for audience members to see what they are doing in our community.” “This year, we are also fortunate to have Metroland Media as our main sponsor,” says Gourgon. “They are proving to be a great addition, helping us get the word out through advertisements and articles


Come and see the talented youth of Lanark County – Carleton Place, Perth, Smiths Falls, Mississippi Mills – perform and compete for the big prize on Oct. 22. Be there to vote for your favourite. “After the success of last year’s Almonte’s Got Talent Show, we had so many requests to allow more people to audition from outside Almonte,” says the show’s director, Jeff Gourgon, “that we decided to go with My Town’s Got Talent, and allow youth from across Lanark County to audition. The show started off as a youth initiative of the Valley Players of Almonte, with the support of the United Way, and has just grown.” This year, Gourgon, a Grade 11 student at Notre Dame Catholic High School in Carleton Place, associate producer Christy Bindhardt, and celebrity judges from across the county will hold auditions during the week of Sept. 19 to 23, to select the 15 final acts for the show. “At the final show on Oct. 22 at the Almonte District High School, those acts will perform for the audience and another panel of celebrity artist judges from Lanark County, who will select the five semifinalists,” says Gourgon.

September 01 2011 Canadian Gazette




Canadians may have the upper hand in hockey, but Americans are famous for their pre-game tailgate parties, especially before college football games. The Carleton Place Canadians combined with the Carleton Place Sister City Committee to run a “pre-game tailgate extravaganza” on Saturday, Sept. 17. The event will be rain or shine, held in front of the arena from 3-6 p.m., with food supported by Leather Works Catering and Century 21 Explorer Realty. The home season kick-off for the Canadians is that night at 7:30 p.m. against the Smiths Falls Bears, at home in Carleton Place. The Sister City Committee oversees arrangements with the town’s two sister communities – Comrie, Scotland, and Franklin, Tennessee. The Sister City Committee was inspired by tailgate parties before the Tennessee Titans’ games in Nashville – 15 minutes away from Franklin. During the pre-game party, the team and coaches will be on hand and unveil the team’s new third jersey. Entertainment will also include interviews and past game footage being shown on a large screen.

There will be two separate barbeques, as well as a fenced off refreshment tent run by Leather Works. The Century 21 and Beckwith barbecue will be a prepared on-site pork roast meal. There will be lots of activities and prizes for the kids – not to mention the team mascot, Bruce the Moose. Those attending are encouraged to bring lawn chairs to guarantee seating. All proceeds from the event will go towards the Sister City Committee for its annual student exchange program with Franklin and Comrie. The Canadians have been busy in the pre-season, beating the Gloucester Rangers 8-4 on the road, and 6-1 at home. They were scheduled to play Nepean on Wednesday after press time. The regular season kicks-off for all CCHL teams at the Kanata Recreation Complex Sept. 9-11, with all 12 teams in the league playing their first two regular season games. The regular season begins with the annual CCHL Showcase which will be played at Kanata Recreation Complex Sept. 9-11. All 12 teams in the league play a pair of regular season games in the same venue on the same weekend to open the season.

The Pike Falls Motorcycle Group is gearing up for its annual toy run, which will be held Sunday, Sept. 18. Thanks to the riders’ fundraising efforts, they were able to send 17 children to summer camps. Pike Falls partners with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lanark County to choose the children to attend week-long sleep-over camps of their choice. Over the years, more than 390 children have had a week-long adventure thanks to the dedicated work of the local group. Pike Falls have raffled bikes, held toy runs and bike shows, all to create the Lanark County Camp Fund, which ensures that every child in the Big Brothers Big Sisters agency who wants to go to camp gets to go. More information on Pike Falls and the Lanark County Camp Fund can be found on their website at Big Brothers Big Sisters is a Lanark County children’s charity, providing mentoring programs to kids who are in need of someone’s extra attention. Some children come from single parent families, some from families struggling with disability, unemployment, poverty, or other needs.

MISSISSIPPI MILLS – Mississippi Mills clubs and services will be having a united open house on Sept. 7. “It’s important if you want to be involved this fall,” said Ni-

cole Guthrie, community and cultural programmer. “It’s sort of the one-stop shop for you to come and check out.” The open house will take place on Sept. 7 from 7-9 p.m. at the Almonte Community Centre at 182 Bridge Street. Some of the clubs and services

there include the Almonte Taekwon-Do Club, the Civitan Club, Rising Sun Yoga, Almonte Judo, Sea Cadets, recreational hockey and nursery school sign-up. Most registrations will be done by cheque, or reserved waiting list with payment to follow, Guthrie said.

Other organizations, clubs and businesses will also be at the event, offering new and current residents a chance to explore community resources. Registration will also be open for the Mississippi Mills recreation department’s two new classes this year, yoga and ket-

tlebell, a weight-based class. The judo and taekwon-do clubs will also be putting on demonstrations throughout the night. “It’s a nice night for families to come out and see all of the things going on in our community,” Guthrie said.

Mind, Body & Spirit Modern Square Dancing – The New Generation You would hardly recognize modern square dancing. There is new music, from Golden Oldies to Elvis to current hits. There are new dance steps, exciting new patterns that keep changing, and unique calls to learn. Modern square dancing happens in school halls, resorts and cruise ships. You can travel to dances all over the world. You will find square dance clubs within most countries of the world including Japan, Sweden and Germany – the calls are in English all over the world. Learn to dance and a whole new world of fun and fellowship will open up for you. You’ll never lose your ability to dance “traditional”. But with Modern Square Dancing, you will be able to graduate to more challenging levels of dance that incorporates fitness and friendship in a fun family atmosphere.

Who Will You Meet? You will meet people who love action, who are doers, and who like to make friends. Some like to dress up; some like to dress casual. Some are working; some retired. Technicians, nurses, police, teachers, mechanics, clerks, salesmen, artists, homemakers, investors, contractors are all members of Mississippi Squares. They like to dance and travel, and their interests range far and wide. They love people and parties.

It Evolved from Tradition

Walking is one of the safest exercises available. Combine mental stimulation with the joy of rhythm and modern square dancing challenges many aspects of conditioning. Most dancers walk 2 – 3 miles per evening and can burn 280 calories every hour. Using the large muscle of legs and arms strengthens bones and improves general health. It is a safe and social workout.

It is great fun to get together with friends and swing to the music of a well known band. Toe tapping rhythm and sing-along’s are the themes expressed in the “singing call” where new and favorite calls can be practiced in an upbeat tempo. It is a confidence builder and it is fun!

Free Open Houses in September “I Was Drag In Kicking And Screaming” Tuesday evenings in September is your chance to try out this wonderful new activity. Come join us at Brunton Hall in Black’s Corner on the 13th, 20th, and 27th at 7:30 to 10 pm. Come early on the 20th for our complimentary Chilli Supper at 6:30 pm. Smith Falls’ dancers can call 283.2446, Arnprior dancers can call 623.7575, and Carleton Place and Almonte dancers can call 253.2960 or 256.0603 for additional information or to make reservation. We’d love to dance with you!

MSD is not a spectator sport. It is action and reaction; it keeps you mentally on your toes. Unbelievable as it may be, there are times when only one partner wants to take up square dancing. The unwilling partner signs up reluctantly and then discovers the joys of mental and physical participation. With practice, the moves become as natural as walking. Learning is easy. The caller teaches new steps during the “tip” and then has everybody practice during the “singing” calls. Yes, mistakes are made – a little smile / join back in. Come alone, it is OK. Angels are there to partner with singles and to help the new dancers; they have great smiles.

Theatre News

Not surprisingly, auditions and signups loom large in this issue, kicking off the autumn season as it does, but more of that later. On the September production scene, the big news is the gala opening of the Full Circle Theatre, new home of Perth’s venerable and classic troupe, Barn Door Productions. The opener is a fun-filled romp entitled, appropriately, A Gal-A Night Is Enough. August saw the first use of the amazing and effective space, with BDP’s excellent run of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, which I thought was splendidly done. However the official opening is with A Gal-A Night,” and the dates are Sept. 16, 17, 22, 23, 24 at 8 p.m, and Sept. 18 and 25 at 2 p.m. Do note - BarnDoor Productions is finally on-line at, where you can find info on all of the above and more. The new theatre is located on Highway 43 (Craig Street in Perth).

It’s Button Mania at Fibrefest! Annual festival has four locations, more than 40 vendors over two days DESMOND DEVOY

ALMONTE – Get ready for Button Mania! If there’s ever been anything you’ve ever wanted to know about making buttons, collecting buttons or the history of buttons, this is your chance as Almonte girds itself for the onslaught of Button Mania, a new part of this year’s Fibrefest. “The Ottawa Valley Button Club approached us,” said Michael Rikley-Lancaster, curator and executive director of the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum in Almonte. “They didn’t realize we were having Fibrefest that weekend. (But) we wanted to include it as part of our Fibrefest celebrations.” Rikley-Lancaster admitted that, up until the club had contacted him about some manner of collaboration, the world of button collecting had been somewhat of a blank slate to him. “Before this, I did not realize that this was a collectible item,” he said. The buttons collected by the club include hand-painted, gold, and even ivory buttons. “There’s quite a range,” said Rikley-Lancaster. There are even artists in the club who have created molds to make their own buttons. The exhibit will also display antique buttons, followed by presentations on button design. Button dealers will also be on site. “There will be an appraisal area where people can get their buttons valued,” said RikleyLancaster. The 16th annual Fibrefest returns on Saturday, Sept. 10 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, Sept. 11 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

It will be held at several venues, including the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum, 3 Rosamond St. East, the North Lanark Agricultural Hall and the canteen building at the Almonte Fairgrounds, both at 195 Water St., and at the Almonte Old Town Hall, 14 Bridge St. Admission is $5, at the door, which includes access to all four sites. The Friends of the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum will provide tea room services featuring homemade goodies, beverages and sandwiches. Fibrefest’s two featured artists include papermaker Beth Levin and wearable art maker Diane Lemire. “I go to Art in the Park in The Glebe,” said Rikley-Lancaster. “I’m part of a jury team to select the best textile artist.” The winner of the textile award’s prize was to have their work displayed at the canteen at the fairgrounds. But this past June, Rikley-Lancaster was spoiled for choice. “I couldn’t decide between the two,” he admitted. Lemire was born in Val d’Or, Que., and grew up in Timmins, Ont., where her father was a miner. Levin studied papermaking at the Ottawa School of Art, and visual and creative arts at Algonquin College. Her handmade sculptures have appeared in galleries in Canada and the United States. During the festival, one of Lemire’s works celebrating the 175th anniversary of the Rideau Canal will be – weather permitting – placed on the lawn in front of the canteen. The festival has attracted more than 40 vendors and displays of everything from spinning to lace to knitting.

Protect Yourself from Life’s Volatility with Insurance STACIE ROBERTSON Volatility is unavoidable when it comes to investing in the stock market. That’s why it’s important for investors to ignore short-term gyrations and have carefully constructed stock portfolios that are built to last – a collection of quality holdings chosen for the expectation of strong performance over the long term. But what about the unavoidable volatility of life? Just like the stock market, we all have our own share of ups and downs in life. Some are joyful, such as marriage or the birth of a child. Others can be unpredictable and tragic. For example, it’s a heartbreaking reality that thousands of Canadians die or are seriously injured each year in car accidents. Others are diagnosed with a disease like cancer, which can result in premature death or the inability to work for months or years. If you died suddenly, would your loved ones be faced with catastrophic financial consequences? Who would pay for your funeral and your family’s monthly bills? Who would pay your monthly mortgage payment and other outstanding debts? How would your children’s future education be funded? And would your family be able to compensate for your lost paycheque, which would be gone forever? That’s why insurance is so important. It can provide money in a timely manner when you need it to offset lost earnings to your household or business in the event of death or serious health change. Just like your investment portfolio, which should be periodically reviewed to make sure everything you own is appropriate in terms of your long-term financial goals, you should also undertake a regular review to ensure you have adequate coverage in place that meets your needs. You might need a carefully constructed insurance portfolio that contains different types to address different possibilities and to match your particular needs. For example, you may need a permanent life insurance solution to meet requirements that exist no matter what age you pass away, such as funeral and burial costs, medical or emergency costs, and taxes on registered assets and capital gains. Term insurance solutions might be best used to meet any particular temporary needs you could have, such as clearing your mortgage or replacing your income until your children are old enough to be self-sufficient. There are a number of questions you should ask yourself

about disability insurance. For instance, what coverage does your employer provide and what are the limitations and exclusions of that coverage? Also, does critical illness insurance make sense for you to protect you from the long-term financial impact of suffering a heart attack, stroke, or the onset of cancer? This might spare you from having to withdraw money from your Registered Retirement Savings Plan, which could be critical in keeping your retirement plans intact. Lastly, long-term care insurance is another consideration. It can help cover the major expense of living in a long-term care facility or receiving care in your home Speak with your financial advisor about your insurance needs and the different options that are available to you.

nity centre destructed by fire. The Future Leaders Community Centre houses its childcare facility. Lanark County Council passed a motion to encourage the federal and provincial government to provide assistance to help re-build the facility. Councillors learned the centre is insured, however the difficulty lies in getting supplied up to the isolated region, which is located north of Sioux Lookout. The county forwarded its motion to the Federal Department of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development as well as the province’s Ministry of Infrastructure and to Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty.

With the Deer Lake evacuees now home, Lanark County will review its emergency response plan. At its Aug. 4 Community Development Committee meeting, County Warden Sharon Mousseau told councillors how staff will review and determine the execution of its emergency response plan. Called in to provide shelter management for the 640 residents living at the old Rideau Regional Centre in Smiths Falls, county staff offered full-time support services over the 15-day period. “Because the Town of Smiths Falls pays in to the county’s social services operations, which provides shelter management, we were called in to help with that,” she explained. When reviewing the two-week outreach to evacuees, Mousseau used Smiths Falls Mayor Dennis Staples’ coined phrase, Neighbours Helping Neighbours. From IT staff setting up cribs to the purchasing officer procuring goods and services, Mousseau raved about county staff efforts. “The staff rolled up their sleeves, and they deserve a pat on the back,” she said. Mousseau said although two senior staff were out of the office at the time, the detailed emergency response plan allowed the county to respond smoothly. “That’s a sign of a good plan,” she said. The Deer Lake evacuee experience allows county staff to review and measure the plan. “You really do put the plan to a test,” she said. “But there are always things you can improve upon.” County staff was scheduled to sit down to review the emergency response plan earlier this week.

he said. “It was truly a model of cooperation.” Geoffrion told council 300 volunteers assisted over the two-week period. He said it was hard work, and after spending 15 days at the former Rideau Regional Centre, Geoffrion told councillors it was time to recuperate. Mousseau thanked Geoffrion and presented him, as well as Red Cross’ Melissa Fougere and Barb Mills, with a bottle of maple syrup as a gift of gratitude. Council asks government to support community centre re-build After spending two weeks in Smiths Falls, the Deer Lake evacuees were returning home only to see its commu-

Last week, Ray Holland, of Pakenham, called to report that the common nighthawks were still around dining on insects. These birds put on wonderful aerial displays as they feed. On Aug. 24, Ray spotted three sandhill cranes in the Pakenham Ward area. From Elizabeth Le Geyt’s bird column, in the Ottawa Citizen, four sandhill cranes were seen in a field near Perth. Moving down to Almonte,

a lady called to ask about a young osprey on Country Street. Evelyn Lalonde wondered what the youngster was eating, as she mentioned it looked like a bird. The Almonte lawn bowlers were watching, and saw the parent bird bring a fish for the juvenile to dine on.

This action occurred on Aug. 24. The ospreys have now all left for a more southerly area. When you go for a drive, do you ever keep a list of the birds you have seen? I did this activity on Aug. 24, as I drove from home to Almonte, then to Carleton Place, before 9 a.m. 15 species of birds were

on trees, feeding in fields, or flying overhead. Along Appleton Road/County 17, a great blue heron stood very still in a stream. One cedar waxwing sat at the top of a tree, while a chipping sparrow perched on a telephone wire. One turkey vulture soared above, while 44 Canada geese fed in a corn field. The rest observed were usual birds to be seen in our area at this time of year. Have your American robins

and eastern bluebirds all left for the south? We haven’t seen any robins for the last ten days. Large flocks of American crows are gathering together, and Canada geese are in bigger flocks feeding in harvested corn fields. The five or sixe blue jays that come to our platform feeder have not all acquired their full plumage yet, especially on their heads. Please call Lynda at: 613-2565013, or email: with bird reports.

Birds gathering to prepare for annual migration


Use Labour Day to say goodbye to summer, not loved ones ends this year and despite their ramped up efforts, tragic deaths and serious injuries have continued to make their way into the statistics books over the spring and summer months. With one summer long weekend left and kids about to start a new school year, the OPP are set to do everything within their means and available resources to keep the year-to-date fatality and injury statistics as

low as possible. The OPP will be highly visible on highways, roads, lakes, rivers and trails targeting impaired drivers, distracted drivers, aggressive drivers, those who are not in compliance with restraint laws. As a means of encouraging discussion with the public, the OPP has been increasing its use of social media to encourage Ontarians to share their views about OPP traffic safety

initiatives and public education campaigns we undertake to keep our highways and roadways safe. Posting traffic safety initiatives and other news on popular social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook about how we keep Ontario safe is fast becoming an integral part of how we do business. It is helping us to be more effective by allowing us to reach out directly to

the public and address issues or misconceptions while raising awareness and generating public viewpoints and questions about the many laws we enforce. The OPP encourages the public to sign up and participate in our social media discussions by following the links to our social media accounts posted on the front page of the OPP website,


Many Ontarians will be eager to head out for one of their last summer outings this coming Labour Day weekend and the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) know how easily eagerness can translate to careless behaviour, poor judgment and ultimate tragedy on roads, waterways and trails. The OPP conducted unprecedented enforcement over the Victoria Day, Canada Day and Civic Holiday long week-

United Way supports back to school kits It’s that time of year again. With many young people in our community gearing up for back to school, there are supplies that are always needed. This process can be a positive one for many students in Lanark County, as they purchase all of the things they’ll need. For some in Lanark County though, this time of year can be one of the hardest. Many households, often with more than one child, are faced with the cost of these supplies. That’s where Connections comes in. For several years, Connections has been putting together “Back to School Kits” for families in need in our community. United Way Lanark County has chosen to support this cause once again by donating $2,000 to the project. “For a child to walk into school on the first day knowing they have a shiny

new backpack and all the supplies they will need offers them the confidence to start the school year right,” said United Way Lanark County executive director Sarah Bridson. “This year 222 kits were distributed to young people in our community,” Cattis Esbensen, coordinator of Connections reported. “Sixty-nine were distributed in Carleton Place and Almonte. The funds and supplies we receive from organizations is greatly appreciated and we could not run this program without that support. Connections staff and volunteers work tirelessly for days purchasing supplies and then making the kits. For further information

on this or other United Way projects please contact the office at 613-253-9074 or visit Submitted by United Way Lanark County

Canadian Federation of University Women holds open house

CFUW holds volunteer and fundraising activities on topics from politics and fitness to travel and literature JACKIE BOYER

backgrounds are welcome. Three years ago, about this time, I had recently moved to Perth and really wanted to meet new friends, get involved in the community and pay back a little through volunteering, as soon as possible. I just happened to read a great article, similar to the one you are now reading, which described CFUW, its mandate and the myriad of areas which readers could support and join in, once they became members. I joined immediately and have had a very busy, rewarding and fun few years because I took that first step by calling the membership chair, attending that first meeting and getting involved right away! This year CFUW is holding its first-ever ‘open house’, an informational evening prior to the start of its new season, to in-

CFUW Publicity Chair

Another summer is almost over and we’re already catching a glimpse of Fall with its beautiful fresh mornings and bright blue skies. It’s that time of year again, when the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) launches its new season with a great program designed to interest everyone. CFUW is an organization of women, linked nationally and internationally to promote quality education; participate in public affairs; improve the status of women and girls, all in an atmosphere of friendship and co-operation. It is a great club where membership is not limited to university graduates and all women from diverse educational

troduce itself to potential new members interested in joining but have not had the opportunity to learn about us through friends. As a member of this highly-regarded club, you will have the chance to meet new colleagues, share in the ‘fun’ volunteering and fundraising activities, participate in study and interest groups on a wide range of topics from literature and music to fitness, travel, languages and cuisine, all of which are available. And most importantly, you will surely not want to miss attending the monthly meetings which offer information on educational, political, social and cultural issues and much more. During the evening Anne Neil, president, will outline the purpose and benefits of the club and discuss some fund-

raising details of the past year which have recently benefited many in Perth and surrounding areas. You will have an opportunity to meet with committee and interest group chairs to learn more about joining key groups and also which fun activities are available. There will be handouts and sign up sheets in case you want to join an activity from day one! Please join usand learn all about the Canadian Federation of University Women - who we are, what we do and how we help the community in Perth and the District. Please RSVP to Isabel Joyce, our membership chair by telephoning 613326-0437. The ‘open house’ will be held on Sept. 12 at the Canadian Legion Hall, 26 Beckwith Street E., Perth from 7-9 p.m. Snacks and beverages will be served.

Overwhelming geological find pushes exhibit launch back DESMOND DEVOY

PERTH – When it comes to rocks and minerals, Michael Bainbridge may have come across too much of a good thing at the Perth Museum. “We had intended to set it (a geology display) up this week,” said Bainbridge, sitting in the courtyard of the Perth Museum on Sunday afternoon, surrounded by cleaning equipment and countless rocks. “(But) there was a lot more (material) of significance that should be dealt with first and assessed…It turned out to be more than we expected.” Bainbridge expects that the first two cases to showcase the collection will go on display at the museum later this fall. The rest of the collection will be rolled out soon after. The museum’s collection includes the collection of Dr. James Wilson, which dates back to 1854, which is still housed on site. Wilson was a well-known personality about town back in the 19th century, but he was also internationally known for his work as a geologist, including his discovery of Perthite and Wilsonite stone. Preceded by two earlier visits, Bainbridge spent from Aug. 19 to 21 cataloguing and cleaning the collection. He is working under contract as a recreational geology coordinator for the Ontario Highlands Tourism Organization (OHTO), which he explains as “finding geologi-

Michael Bainbridge proudly shows off some quartz from the Lyndhurst mine, part of the treasure trove of minerals soon to be on display at the Perth Museum. cally-related experiences,” for people to enjoy. “Those experiences include mineral collecting and geological interpretations like walking tours,” explained Bainbridge. The OHTO hopes to promote the

Highlands region, which includes Lanark County, as a hot spot for geology tourism. “It’s the story of the earth, of the common experience of the landscape,” said Bainbridge. “Geology dictates the landscape, and the land dictates the culture.” The OHTO will be donating two display cases that will form the first part of the third-floor geology display area. The first case will feature the Wilson collection, with the second case featuring a “best of ” from the museum’s collection. Afterwards, the museum hopes to include a fossil collection, and a general geological component. The fossil collection will likely be displayed, appropriately enough, in the old display cases from the 1930s. “I’d say we’re getting close to 1,000 pieces,” said Bainbridge, looking around at volunteer George Thompson, polishing up some black rock with a brush at a nearby water bowl. The process of getting everything ready, however, is proving daunting. “It’s to get everything safe, to have it assessed, to have it cleaned, to get it out of storage,” said Bainbridge. “We’ll lay it all out on a table and say ‘That goes on display, that can be sold at the gift shop, that can to go the Royal Ontario Museum,’” as part of a trade. While Wilson and past curators did as good a job as they could to detail the material they had, they were dealing with information they had available to them

at the time, which has changed since pen was last put to paper many years ago. One volunteer brought Bainbridge a large grey and green hunk of chrome diopside. The attached note said that it was from New Kaladar, Ont. “That’s going to be a job with the historical atlas,” said Bainbridge, holding the rock up to examine it. “Maybe New Kaladar is an old name for Madoc.” He also surmised that it could also be Kaladar’s old name, which dropped the “new” a long time ago. Bainbridge is originally from Ottawa, but he now calls Minden, in Haliburton County, home. He attended Niagara College’s film school, but his geological expertise is self-taught. “I had many good mentors over the years,” said Bainbridge. One piece of the collection that will most certainly be going on display this fall will be some gypsum crystal from a mine in Galetta, one of only nine in existence. Bainbridge was delighted to find one in such good condition that had survived the mining process. “Having the expertise to help with this, because it is a big collection, and we’re not experts…is helping with our collection management,” said Karen Rennie, heritage manager and curator for the Town of Perth. “I don’t think people around here know about our geological heritage. It’s a little lost so it’s time to bring it back.”
