A message of forgiveness at CTC Bike-A-Thon PLUS breakfast CORNWALL, Ontario – After being stabbed 37 times and left for dead, Pastor Kevin Ramsby was moved by four simple words - “they still need you.” Ramsby delivered a powerful lesson in forgiveness to a crowd of 600 at the Children’s Treatment Centre (CTC) Bike-A-Thon Plus kickoff breakfast last Wednesday. A strung-out knife-wielding intruder ransacked his family’s Detroit home in the summer of 2009. Ramsby suffered wounds to the neck, back, head, abdomen, and hands, but not a single vital organ was struck. “When I was laying there covered in blood, praying, I heard the words ‘they still need you’ and it became a life mission for me,” said Ramsby. He said teaching children, especially those being helped by the treatment centre, about forgiveness will allow them to move past their past, and embrace their emotional and spiritual scars. “How can you forgive a man that stabbed you 37 times? I’ll tell you how, every day I look at my children and I know what I don’t forgive I pass on,” he said. “I want them to know they don’t have to choose to become bitter, they can get better.” Ramsby has kept in close contact with the man who nearly killed him by writing to him in jail. The attacker stated in one letter that the terrible relationship he had with his father was the root of his drug addiction. “The power of community is so instrumental in healing. Abused children and their families being served by the treatment centre need you,” he said. Don Fairweather, CTC Bike-A-Thon Plus

chair, said last year’s event raised $110,000. “We need to match or exceed this amount this year in order to ensure we don’t dip into our ‘rainy day’ reserves to support the children who need our help,” said Fairweather. The annual CTC Bike-A-Thon Plus fundraiser takes place on Saturday, May 24. This year’s event includes a ceremonial walk, 100K cycling challenge, 5/10K walk, 5/10K run, seniors walk, rock-a-thon, trail ride, and a wheel-a-thon. For more information, visit

Jeannine Bergeron, at 76, loves her new piercing Todd Lihou

CORNWALL, Ontario - She’s 76, a resident of a community nursing home, and hasn’t let age or an infirmity slow her down. The evidence is written all over Jeannine Bergeron’s face. Just last week Bergeron became one of the latest persons to have a nose ring done. With the flick of the wrist - and a long needle - staff from Terry Lynn’s BeauTeek had Bergeron pierced and a nose ring in place during an appointment that was conducted at Parisien Manor. Obviously seniors are not exactly the market most piercers look for, but don’t tell that to Bergeron. “I wanted it done a long time ago,” she said in an interview. “But I didn’t know anyone who had had it done. “But there are a few of the girls (staff) here who have one.”

Parisien Manor has a so-called ‘Living Dreams’ program that allows its residents to make wishes that often get fulfilled. Soon a resident will receive her first ever massage from a registered masseuse, and recently a miniature horse was brought to the facility on Marlborough Street for a resident who had never seen the animal up close. Another woman went to her first ever live hockey game - a Montreal Canadiens tilt, no less. But none of those events included a needle and some pain. “I didn’t see it,” said Bergeron of the needle. Instead she busied herself looking at the wall while the piercer went to work. “It hurt for one second.” Since then there has been no looking back for Bergeron. “It was worth it,” she said. “The first thing I knew it was done. My family didn’t even know.” Her husband Samuel approves, as does her daughter Lin.

Jeannine Bergeron, at 76, had a nose ring done at Parisien Manor in Cornwall.

Hospital brass won’t meet with city council,

Rivette ponders legal moves Todd Lihou

Notices of motion can only be read out at council meetings, but are not debated until a subsequent date – usually the next council meeting, which in this case is May 26.

CORNWALL, Ontario - Cornwall Community Hospital leaders will not meet with city council, and at least one councillor is fuming. Coun. Andre Rivette has crafted a motion that will be read, but not debated, at tonight’s council meeting, concerning the consolidation of the pathology department at the hospital. The decision to consolidate the department, in effect shutting it down and moving the services to Ottawa, will result in job loss and longer wait times for patients anxious to learn if they have cancer, critics charge. In his notice of motion Rivette calls the hospital decision “unacceptable” and wants the municipality to seek legal advice on whether an injunction to stop the moving of pathology services to Ottawa can be obtained until hospital brass comes before council.






“All we’re asking is to find out what’s going on,” said Rivette. “It’s an insult to us.”

Group opposed to waterfront tanks officially throws in the towel Todd Lihou

CORNWALL, Ontario - The chief critic of a pair of waterfront tanks in Cornwall conceded Monday night the fight to oppose the tanks has been lost. Chuck Charlebois, chair of Groupe Renassiance Group, met with city council and said the future is about finding uses for waterfront land that is in the best interests of the city. “For this battle it’s over. We lost - and that’s it,” said Charlebois, who was also representing the Cornwall Chamber of Commerce, Le Village BIA, and the city’s waterfront committee. “We can ponder on why...but it’s not going to get us anywhere and I think we all realize that. “What’s important now is the war and the war is how are we going to conduct ourselves moving forward.” Charlebois said the city must focus on

Transport Canada’s port divestiture program to protect the future use of Cornwall’s waterfront. “We want the best land use...through divestitutre,” he said. “The best interest of our people are taken into account.” Charlebois was lauded by city councillors for his work - which included sending hundreds of emails and conducting rallies and presentations in opposition to the tanks, which were built by Trillium Distribution to house calcium chloride. “I look forward to your continued assistance and co-operation,” said Mayor Bob Kilger, who also praised Charlebois for his ability to “solidify the sentiment and the hopes and asperations of our community. “We see divestiture as the correct instrument to acquire those lands.” City CAO Norm Levac said negotiations between Cornwall, Akwesasne and Transport Canada have begun, with an aim to seeing the city and First Nation assume ownership of the property which is adjacent to the harbour. Levac said it’s anticipated as many as 10 trucks per day will leave the waterfront tank area to transport the chemical outside the city. Coun. Denis Carr agreed the future is about acquiring the land via divestiture. “If we want to have control of that land we have (to exploit) the divestiture program,” he said.

Ready to clean up the yard? Are you itching to start work in the yard? If so, you’re not the only one! Keep an eye on your lawn, because as soon as the ground has dried out you can start the big spring cleanup. While you wait you could start your gardening season by checking the state of your tools. Are your spades, rakes, secateurs, hoes, weeders, hand tools, and other indispensable devices in need of repair or replacement? Don’t forget about gardening gloves; a pair made of rubber is practical for working in wet soil and another pair made of a heavy fabric is always useful for big jobs. Perhaps you’ve already sowed some of your flower seeds inside. Many seeds have to be planted in January, February, or March, but April is the time to sow zinnias, nasturtiums, and celosias. You’ll find all the seeds you need at your favourite garden centre. Just be sure to follow the package instructions. One of the first jobs in the

yard is to remove any winter protection, then clean up dead branches and leaves, turn over the soil in vegetable and flower beds, and add some compost. Some of your shrubs and rosebushes will also have to be pruned. The professionals at the garden centre will be able to tell you about the care that each of your plants requires. If you were clever and planted some bulbs last fall, you’ll now be able to admire the fruits of your labour. Crocus and snowdrops are the earliest to appear, followed by a gorgeous display of daffodils, tulips, and hyacinths. Once the risk of ground frost has passed you can take advantage of a cloudy day to transplant your annuals and divide your summer-flowering perennials. Lastly, don’t forget to acclimatize your seedlings gradually before planting them outside. This simple precaution will make all the difference to their survival.

‘Flame of Hope’ blazes through Cornwall

CORNWALL, Ontario – The Flame of Hope was taken through Cornwall last Wednesday as part of the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics. Cornwall Community Police Service (CCPS) members, staff, and students from C.C.V.S. joined communities across Ontario for the annual Torch Run which helps to raise awareness and funds for Special Olympics. The participants ran from the CCPS East End Station, located at 330 Montreal Road, and proceeded west to Sydney Street, then north for a brief stop at C.C.V.S. The group will then continue north on Sydney Street until their arrival at Baxtrom’s Independent Grocer. Adam Brazeau

Stephanie Grady loses cancer battle Todd Lihou

CORNWALL, Ontario - A Cornwall area teacher that was the centre of a massive fundraising effort to help with experimental cancer treatments has lost her battle with the dreaded disease. Stephanie Grady died Saturday. She was just 32. Social media lit up on the weekend with expressions of sympathy. Grady was a teacher at St. Lawrence High School and had three children with her husband Nick. She lived in Long Sault. Grady suffered from NUT midline carcinoma, an aggressive cancer that had spread to her hips, pelvis, and spine.

Doctors had pronounced her condition incurable. In order to provide the opportunity for Grady to participate in a clinical drug trial at a cancer institute in Boston, supporters had organized events ranging from online and silent auctions to athletic events and tournaments, as well as breakfasts, brunches and dinners. Volunteers had spearheaded a fundraising campaign, dubbed ‘We’re NUT giving up’ to help raise money for the treatments. The campaign raised more than $100,000 in just one month earlier this year. “She is one of the most humble, kind and giving individuals I have ever met,” said Heather Lisney, a Brockville teacher that was co-ordinating fundraising work


for the family, said back in February. “She is warm, nurturing and hard-working.”

Hundreds of thousands to reduce paramedic response times Todd Lihou

CORNWALL, Ontario - A new EMS post in Long Sault could take some of the burden off paramedics stationed in Cornwall who may have to leave the city to respond to an emergency in South Stormont. City council heard Monday night there are two ambulances stationed in Cornwall at any given time, but coverage problems can occur if there is a third call for paramedics in the city, or if one of the Cornwall ambulances is tasked to head into the counties. “That third call is the problem,” said Myles Cassidy, the city’s emergency services manager. Cassidy said paramedics are dispatched out of Ottawa, which has a mandate to send the closest vehicle available to a call for service.

Taxpayers in Cornwall and the United Counties of SDG will have to cough up $238,783 to improve paramedic response times, which would include the new EMS base in Long Sault. Cassidy presented an EMS deployment review to city council at its meeting Tuesday. The review indicated a new EMS post in Long Sault and additional paramedic response units (paramedics equipped with vehicles) were essential to cut response time to a 12-minute average in the counties. The overall cost of $477,567 will be split 50 per cent with the province, leaving 29 per cent for counties ratepayers, and the remainder for city residents. “Obviously we’re falling behind in terms of coverage in the counties,” said Coun. Berndatte Clement. “It is fitting that we should be here now discussing this...this is a

valid recommendation.” The city is the service delivery agent for paramedic services that also covers SD and G.

Grady’s funeral was Wednesday at Our Lady of Grace Church in Ingleside.

The review was completed by ORH, a U.K.-based consulting firm.

Function should rule over form NUTHILLTOO@GMAIL.COM

Have you ever tried looking for a house number in a city? Good luck! Most look as if they were designed and installed by a military camouflage expert. I can just imagine overhearing his musings as he goes about his post-military service civil work. “Let’s see now. Here’s where my five years of service in the jungles of Viet Nam, the decade of street combat in Iraq and Afghanistan and all the research about urban combat during WW II should come in handy.” “Let’s make sure this first street number is

colour-coordinated: grey lettering on a grey wall should look good. Hmmm, this mottled red and brown brick of the next house would call for a brown four, a red seven and two grey ones. Ah! That looks good, blends in perfectly.” “That next house, the little bungalow with the unusually long setback, should be easy. Numbers no larger than two centimeter high and two millimeters thick should be almost invisible at a road-to-wall distance of five car lengths.” “Now the jungle experience in Nam comes in handy. A bushy lilac should obscure this house number quite nicely. Oops! Almost forgot about lilac being a deciduous. We’ll use cedar on this one, and for variety, spruce on the next two.” When the police, fire fighters, paramedic,

ambulance, taxi or pizza guy is called to your place, will he be able to identify your house easily, by day, by night? The ten or twenty minutes wasted by a frustrating search for an identifiable house number could mean a cold pizza, an out of control blaze or a dead heart attack victim. When I become king, uniformly-located civic number signs for all urban buildings will be mandatory. We already have such a ruling in our rural areas. Aesthetics, style or fung shwei be damned! In the matter of identifying homes or businesses, function would rule. The signage would be uniform in height, colour, size and location, even for the Notre Dame cathedral, Buckingham Palace, the CN Tower, every Tim Horton’s – and yes, your swank suburban abode.

THEY ALL LOOK THE SAME – The only thing that will assist the cops, ambulance, fire truck or pizza delivery guy to find the right address on time is a bold, uniform, well-placed numbering system. (Photo by Nick Wolochatiuk)

Editorial & Opinions

Charlebois, and Renaissance, appear headed for the sunset Todd Lihou TODD.LIHOU@TC.TC

Kind of a shocker at city hall this week - and it had nothing to do with a decision made at the council table. It was our old friend Chuck Charlebois, who almost in a nonchalant way, told all of us that his beloved Groupe Renaissance Group, would soon be no more. At the media table we all kind of looked at each other. Did he really just say that? Turns out, he did. While in the midst of an exchange with city councillors over the controversial waterfront tank issue, Charlebois said the 14-year-old group that had made the beautification of the city’s east end its chief priority would soon be no more. All that’s left is a simple audit of the group’s financial statements, and a final meeting to officially put it to bed and Groupe Renaissance Group will be a thing of the past. It’s kind of sad. I can remember touring parts of Montreal with Charlebois back when his agency was simply known as the “Renaissance Group.” Charlebois, accompanied by his friend Avi Friedman, a Montreal architect, marveled at some of the work that was done in the city to turn old commercial properties into condos and living

quarters. Charlebois believed the same could be done right here in Cornwall. He was right. The condo project that eventually developed in Cornwall’s east end is a direct result of the intervention of Charlebois and Renaissance. The group also took on derelict landlords in an effort to clean up properties that had fallen into disrepair. “Drug houses” were demolished or fixed up. Thanks again, Chuck Charlebois and Renaissance. It’s sad that the group is in its final days. The reason boils down to the simple passage of time. Chuck, it would seem, is getting tired. I can hardly blame him. He spoke Monday night of moving aside so that perhaps someone else could take the reins of community stewardship he has so staunchly held for years. Who that will be is anyone’s guess, and Charlebois has suggested he’ll be there to offer advice and support where it’s needed. But it would seem his days of leading the charge are coming to an end. I respect his decision, lord knows he deserves a break – but I’ll miss seeing him at the head of the charge. He is a respectful person, who can have a chat with a stranger on a Cornwall street just as easily as a government official or political leader.

Even when he disagrees with you, passionately, Chuck does it in a way that makes you feel better for the exchange. His ability to build support for a project or issue comes with a grassroots fervor very few can emulate. It’s a shame that Renaissance is ending its time on a down note of sorts. The group “lost” – in Chuck’s words – its battle to remove the waterfront tanks recently built on Cornwall’s waterfront. The irony is inescapable. A group that spent years working feverishly to improve the waterfront and Cornwall’s east end has to endure the sting of another industrial component to an area that could eventually become a residential paradise. Like he’s done on so many other occasions, Chuck has been forced to roll with the punches. His health has been a concern of many for

years. To think that he has rallied so many in our city to various causes, all the while facing a battery of health issues, never ceases to amaze me. He’s lost both his legs to amputation, has endured heart problems and has experienced strokes. I can recall during an interview shortly after he came back from a stroke many years ago he broke down a little during a chat we were having about the waterfront. He knew what he wanted to say, but was having difficulty articulating his thoughts because of the effects of the stroke. Tears rolled down his face. “Sorry,” he said. “Sometimes I get like this.” I wish everyone in the city “got like that” when it came to talking about improving Cornwall. Passion like that can’t be faked and is difficult to ignore.

Gay or straight - who cares? Claude McIntosh Mac’s Musings

Claiming that two (unnamed) prominent local politicians are “closet” gays, an online scribbler recently raised the issue of gay folks serving as elected representatives. The piece (it was emailed to me) seemed to suggest that perhaps they are not being honest with their constituents if they don’t come out of the proverbial closet and lay their sexuality upon the public altar. Incredibly, Coun. Bernadette Clement got dragged into the article that asked the mindboggling, bizarre question: “Is Bernadette Clement for example a single gal or hiding a long-time relationship even when stumping for MP or council here in Cornwall?” Wow! Where did that come from? Yes, the popular councillor is single, but so are a lot of thritysomething people in this day and age. But it doesn’t mean they are gay. And if they are gay, so what? (For the record, anybody who knows Bernadette Clement knows she is not gay. In fact, she thinks Ryan Gosling is an adorable hunk. My wife is a friend of Bernadette, which explains the Clement Liberal sign on my wife’s half of the front yard in the last federal election.) Unfortunately, many outside the gay community confuse homosexuality with pedophilia. The mistaken assumption being that if you are gay, you are a pedophile. This might be the reason some keep their sexuality to themselves and close friends. The Montreal professor quoted in the posting I received is right when he says that in this day and age it is pretty difficult for a gay politician to

keep it a secret. Numerous politicians at all levels have chosen to go public. Good for them. But if a politician, or anybody living in the public fish bowl, decides not to declare their gay preference, so what? It is their call. It has nothing to do with honesty or accountability. It has everything to do with privacy. No laws are being broken. As a friend is fond of saying, “How does that affect the price of rhubarb?” TRIVIA ANSWER Dean Hollingsworth, elected to city council at age 26, became the city’s youngest councillor, a mark that was broken by a teenager named Korey Kennedy. TRIVIA Which chain had the first grocery store in Cornwall Square? IN THE REAR-VIEW MIRROR The Top Dog hot dog stand circa 1987, at Second and Cumberland streets that had the shape of a giant hot dog. A city councillor thought it too “obsence” and tried (and failed) to have it removed. ... Ricky Marvel recalls playing Little League baseball (along with this scribbler) on sandlots on Cumberland Street (next to the former silk factory) and at Sydney and Eight streets which later became the site for Sydney Street Public School. ... One of the great things about growing up in the pre-1970s was that there were so many big empty fields around town to play in. One was the old “chair factory” at York and Third streets, now home to First Baptist Church. HERE & THERE Hard to understand how finance ministers who oversee huge increases in the annual deficit and debt, to the brink of bankruptcy, end up with plum jobs with financial institutions on Bay Street. .... Jack Haines sends along a story re: Highway 407 (Ontario’s only toll highway, at least for now) being owned by a foreign conglomerate. Yup, just another of our assets sold off to foreign interests. Between foreign outfits buying Canadian institutions (beer

companies, etc.) and native land claims, our grand kids will be left with something the size of Pelee Island. ... When governments say they need more of our money, we should be asking what they did with all the money we’ve given them. THIS’N’DAT I will be surprised (no, make that shocked) if the ridiculous consultant’s report ($$$$) on salary increases for city councillors is released and acted on before the October municipal election. Reason is pretty simple: it could become an election issue. And wonder how many incumbents would campaign on the alleged need to be paid more money? Break out the crying towels. ... A headshaker: Few years back city council continued to use bottled water around the council table after million of dollars was spent upgrading the city filtration plant that was accompanied by a city hall public relations campaign to assure residents that their drinking water was better (and safer) than bottled water. ... Instead of saying marijuana is no worse than cigarettes, shouldn’t it be said that smoking marijuana is just as bad (for your health) as smoking cigarettes? SEEN & HEARD The Liberals and the NDP want everyone to overlook the scandalridden McGuinty reign and the incompetent Bob Rae government (when social assistance rolls skyrocketed to a record 500,000), but then they keep bringing up Mike Harris. ... Seems that more people are texting and talking on cell phones than before the fines were jacked up. ... A budget that calls for the closing of the Riverdale pool is passed then less than two months later two councillors who voted for the budget say they are against closing the pool. Ah, it must be the silly season (aka election year). ... No, Coun. Andre Rivette wasn’t talking about the current council when he said “It’s old ... it has to go.” He was talking about the Riverdale pool, as Coun. Denis Thibault astutely noted. ... Rivette made a good point when he wondered why the

city would hold off until fall to seek tenders on a used piece of summer construction equipment (packer). Why not put it on the market when the equipment is seasonal?, he reasoned. ROUND’N’BOUT Is there a patio in town commanding a more scenic view than the one at RCAFA Wing 424 overlooking Lamoureux Park and the St. Lawrence River? It’s one of the city’s best kept secrets. ... Let me get this straight. The Roman Catholic Church is vehemently opposed to abortion. It’s considered a sin. Justin Trudeau, leader of the Liberal party who has a good shot at being the next prime minister and is a practising Roman Catholic, has announced that he will block the nomination of new Liberal candidates for the 2015 federal election if they have non Pro Choice views. He said there is no place in the party for folks who don’t support Pro Choice. In other words, even those who might not oppose abortion in early stages but have reservation about late stage abortions need not apply. The condemnation from church leaders is deafening. The New Dems have a similiar “oath” which must have the party’s patron saint, Tommy Douglas, an evangelical preacher, spinning in his grave. SPORTS STUFF One of Doug Gilmour’s first duties after receiving a lengthy contract extension as general manager of the Kingston Frontenacs was to fire his “good friend” and former Toronto Maple Leafs teammate Todd Gill, a native of Cardinal. One of the first things Gilmour did after being named GM in 2011 was to hire his “good friend” Gill as coach. The ex-Royals star called Gill’s firing the toughest decision he has made as GM of the Ontario Hockey League team. Gill’s termination was the club’s reaction to the Fronts blowing a 3-0 playoff series lead to the underdog Peterborough Petes. Gilmour might be placing a call to Kirk Muller, a Kingston native and the just-fired coach of the Carolina Hurricanes.

High taxes will remain for the foreseeable future Ed Allard


It’s not surprising that people insist city councillors can do more to reduce taxes. After all, Cornwall is sitting on some $47 million in reserves of one sort or another, all earning dividends and interest. It’s a fairly comfortable nest egg by anyone’s measure. Of course, more than half that is the Progress Fund, which was wisely set aside by a previous administration. That alone has brought some $17 million in interest to city coffers since it was first established some years back, which, of course, has been spent almost as fast as it was earned. Also, we have no real debt to speak of. We still owe about $12 million for the new sewage plant, which will be paid for a year at a time from a rate increase a few years ago. The Benson Centre debt is about the same and will be paid off over some 20 years from Progress Fund interest. Then there are a few assorted millions for new fire and police vehicles, recreation equipment and a loan for police sick leave benefits, which are being

paid directly from property taxes. In all, the tax burden to pay down these loans is well below most other cities. Yet, despite this very favourable position, our tax rate is notably higher than other cities, due in part to lower assessment. People in Toronto pay about a third less tax for properties worth more than twice what any home in Cornwall is worth. In fact, our tax rate has caused those with any real money to scurry to the adjacent townships. It’s not for nothing that the mansions are all outside of town. But that also keeps city assessment below the provincial average. Efforts to reduce taxes have befuddled successive city councils for many years. The best they’ve managed is to keep tax increases down to just less than 2% a year, at least recently. But there has been no year in recent memory when property tax bills actually went down. Of course, if council used the money in the bank to offset taxes, we’d soon find ourselves in a world of hurt. Those funds are like overdraft protection. They have been set aside to cover unforeseen expenditures that can occur from time to time, such as the long and rather costly winter we just came through or the recent flooding that many homeowners

remember all too well. In fact, according to the city’s auditor, the working reserves are too low, which sounds like a contradiction with $47 million in the bank. But each reserve account has a different purpose and strict rules for how it can be used; so moving money from one to the other is intentionally difficult. Ideally, working reserves should be about $4 million or more, but councillors have been raiding that particular cookie jar over the years and that account is now just barely above zero. That’s not a healthy situation. We should be thankful that they haven’t yet raided the Progress Fund. There have been attempts to do that to pay down existing loans and save on interest costs, with a commitment to pay it back, of course. That sounds like good financial sense. But if they can’t keep their hands off the “free money” in the working reserve account, I would seriously doubt any long-term commitment to pay back the Progress Fund. As for taxes, they’ll stay up where they are until city council has an adult conversation about changes to the way services are delivered. In an election year, that’s not going to happen. And that’s the way I see it.

Heartwood was René’s final home and what a home it was. So much dignity and kindness was felt that words cannot express our admiration and gratitude for the dedication of its caring staff! Many thanks to the nurses and staff at McConnell Manor, at Carefor and to Dr Pierre Bergeron for all their interventions in the last few years . A special mention to Marc, Adele and Richard Bray at Boulerice Funeral Home for their creative efforts to help families smile and cry through their happy memories and for their respect for veterans. We wish to thank members of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 297 for their respectful salute to their fallen comrade from the RCAF. The family has a warm appreciation for the beautiful service at St Felix parish by Father Jean Muakadi who comforted all with his words of hope, Hélène Leblanc for her amazing rendition of a favourite family song(Souvenir d’un veillard), the touching eulogy given by the granddaughters Geneviève D’Aoust, Andréa Filion, Gabrielle White and Roxanne Cloutier and to the pallbearers, son Paul Giroux and grandsons Marc D’Aoust, Charles White, Shane and Justin Holder and Richard Cloutier. Finally to all who attended or sent their condolences, donations to Heartwood, the Hospice, Heart and Stroke and masses and gift of food, our most heartfelt gratitude. You will never know how much we appreciated your kindness. René would have been so overwhelmed by all these expressions of love . He was quiet, unassuming, hard working (37 years at Courtaulds and part-time house painter) , always ready to help his children, neighbours, friends and family. He was especially close to his 15 brothers and sisters who, like him, loved music and dancing and was probably aiming to reach 100 years of age like his mother Ella and his sisters Laurette and Jeanne . He made such a difference in many lives and especially to Stella his wife of 66 years. He will be in our hearts forever! Merci du fond du coeur à tous qui nous ont aidé à traverser notre peine. René aurait ajouter ¨bien aimable!¨

Students ‘clothes’ the deal for Agapè Centre Adam Brazeau

Students involved with overseeing the project included Melissa Cleary, School Prime Minister, Shelby Stang, Deputy Prime Minister, Morgan Villeneuve, Minister of Communication, and Julianne HorvathAbbott, Minister of Published Affairs. The remainder of the coordinators were students Hannah Farmer, Kayla Lalonde, and Ashley Bouwman.

Agape Centre, credited the students for separating and organizing all the donations, which allows their volunteers to focus on other areas of need. “The clothes the students collected will be both given for free to clients in need, and sold in the thrift store, where the revenue generated supports Agape Centre services,” said Blais.


CORNWALL, Ontario – Students at St. George Catholic School in Long Sault have transformed their standby outfits into fresh wardrobes for clients of Cornwall’s Agape Centre. The elementary school collected 1,349 articles for the Agape Centre as part of a Lenten project hosted by its School Council. The project began on Ash Wednesday (March 5) and completed on Friday, April 25. All of St. George’s 83 pupils and eight staff members were astonished when they saw the mountain of green garbage bags full of the collected items. “It was a good experience because as the

graduating students it was our final positive contribution to the community,” said Morgan Villeneuve. “Even though it was very time consuming and difficult as all lunch breaks were spent sorting clothes, I would certainly do it again,” added Kayla Lalonde. Maureen Smith, the project’s teacher advisor, wanted an initiative that was fresh, easy to manage, and at no not cost to families of the school. The slogan written on posters located throughout the school read: “Don’t bring things in torn because they are going to be worn.” “The idea of a gently worn clothing drive fit all of the criteria,” said Smith.

War heroes saluted


at first-ever National Day of Honour Adam Brazeau

CORNWALL, Ontario – The sacrifices made by Libby Pelkey’s two sons, who served in Afghanistan among thousands of other Canadian soldiers, were commemorated at the National Day of Honour ceremony held in Cornwall last Friday. Pelkey, a resident of Winchester, paid tribute to Canada’s military engagement at the city’s cenotaph, surrounded by members of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 297, Warrant Officer Jody Stang, who served in Afghanistan, political dignitaries, and a small crowd of local residents. Her sons Cody (28) and Kyle Pelkey (26) have served a combined six tours in the wartorn country. Both started their paths in the Canadian military as reservists with the SDG Highlanders. “An event like today means everything. It makes me think of the young men and women who lost their lives while they were over there. I can’t imagine what their families

are going through today,” said Pelkey. “I’m very lucky and fortunate that my boys came home and that they’re both OK. I know they have battle scars probably mentally in some capacity, but physically they’re fine. I can hug them and that’s good.” In the last few months, a rash of suicides by Canadian soldiers have turned the issue of mental health and post-traumatic stress disorder in the Canadian military into a battlefield. But Pelkey says her boys have been well taken care of by the Canadian military. “I have no complaints whatsoever. I don’t think they do either. They have all kinds of resources available to them. And they’ve taken advantage of that,” she said. The National Day of Honour was held as a tribute to the fallen, the sacrifices of the wounded, and the special burden borne by families. But local veterans considered the federal government’s decision to announce the event in mid-March as a tad hasty. “It was kind of a short notice, but I think

it went very well,” said Ken Heagle Legion president. “When it comes to honouring our veterans we have no preference - and that’s the way it should be. But I think now that we’ve had the Honour Day, we’ll leave it for November 11 where we honour all veterans.” Heagle noted that the east side of the cenotaph has a commemorative plaque honouring Afghanistan, UN, and NATO peacekeepers. MP Guy Lauzon and Pelkey both agree they’d like to see National Day of Honour return. “I’m certainly hoping it will become an annual affair,” said Lauzon. He said Pelkey’s sons were two of 40,000 people who served in Afghanistan over a 12-year period. The ultimate sacrifice was made by 162 Canadians - 158 were members of the Canadian Armed Forces. The National Day of Honour was commemorated in Ottawa and across Canada with several events. A moment of silence was also held across the country to reflect upon the sacrifices made during the mission.

The first National Day of Honour was held at the Cornwall Cenotaph on May 9. Adam Brazeau

Lifejackets 101 Lifejackets have been saving lives for hundreds of years with the first recorded history of use by Norwegian seamen who used simple blocks of wood. The forerunner of the modern lifejacket was invented by Captain Ward of England. In 1854 he created a cork vest designed to be worn by lifeboat crews for both weather protection and buoyancy. This early style of lifejacket can be seen in the movie the Titanic. It was a useful survival tool but eventually gave way to those made of Kapok. Kapok was a softer alternative to cork which was good news to navy seamen who often wore their lifejackets whenever aboard, including even when they were sleeping. Now, no one is suggesting that you wear your lifejacket when you sleep aboard, but the message that the Canadian Safe Boating Council and the Canadian Power and Sail Squadron has been delivering for years; “Boat Safe, Boat Smart – Wear It” and “It’s Your Life…. Preserve It” are certainly relevant for most

other times we are aboard especially in smaller open boats. The question is why do we continue to ignore those messages, putting ourselves, our loved ones and friends at risk? Interestingly, CSBC and Smart Risk’s research demonstrates that most of us insist that our children wear their lifejackets. However the willingness to wear a lifejacket drops from 85 percent for children under 5, to a low of 37 percent by they time they reach their teen years and continues to decline significantly after the teen years. So what’s the result of all this complacency and unwillingness to wear a lifejacket? Across Canada, 89 percent of recreational boaters who drown each and every year were not wearing a lifejacket. Most of these drownings occur in small open power boats, accounting for 60 percent of these preventable deaths. A majority of these victims were males between the ages of 19 and 35, out for a day of fishing. An average of 140

unnecessary drownings occur every year. Many boaters who drown believe they are good swimmers, so they feel that having a lifejacket on board and within easy reach is good enough. But what good is a lifejacket that is stored under a seat or under the bow going to be when the unexpected happens? Most drownings happen unexpectedly when small boats capsize or someone falls overboard. The lifejacket that you leave behind is not much use, especially in cold water. Speaking of cold water, in Canada, many boaters like to extend their boating season as long as they can when water temperatures particularly at the beginning and end of season can be very chilly. There are also parts of this country where water temperatures remain cold all year around. Hypothermia is a condition most boaters have heard about, and can lead to many problems such as disorientation and rapid incapacitation, but the real shocker is found in the new research on sudden cold water immersion.

Death from sudden cold water immersion happens very, very quickly. Research by Dr. Michael Tipton, a leading expert in cold water immersion, has shown that the “gasp reflex” from sudden immersion has led to more deaths than previously known. The reaction causes a sudden uncontrollable gasp, followed by 1-3 minutes of hyperventilation. The initial gasp can cause you to inhale up to 2 litres of water, causing drowning. This volume of water will cause an individual not wearing a lifejacket to sink and not re-appear. If the first gasp of water is not fatal, hyperventilation will lead to the rapid onset of severe hypothermia and death. So if the “gasp reflex” doesn’t get you initially, you still face the second effect of cold water immersion, cold incapacitation. In cold water your extremities will numb quickly, progressing to make it more difficult to swim and eventually if you are not wearing a lifejacket, swim failure and drowning is imminent. If you are wearing a lifejacket, the third effect of cold water immersion is hypothermia and it can occur in water as warm as 20 degrees. With all that information, the message should be clear. Having your lifejacket on before you end up in the water will greatly increase your chance of survival. So why don’t we? Some of the common reasons for not wearing a lifejacket are: “they’re uncomfortable;” and “they look stupid.” Well those reasons just don’t fly anymore. Things have changed and there is a new generation of lifejackets in town. Whether they are specialized lifejackets for specific on water activities or the new inflatable lifejackets, they are much more comfortable than the old standard ones and certainly put those old objections to rest. There are many new, improved (and approved by Transport Canada) lifejackets and all are all designed to be lightweight and comfortable. There is a wide range of styles and colours and all are designed for the type of boating you do and conditions you face. Whether it be paddling, sailing, fishing, water sports or riding personal water craft, there is a lifejacket suited for it. The new face on the waterfront are the inflatables; the most comfortable, lightweight lifejackets you can buy and are available in vest or pouch styles. Inflatable jackets come standard with manual inflation, but a few models are available with automatic inflation, which instantly inflates the lifejacket when you hit the water. To meet Canadian Small Vessel Regulations, inflatable lifejackets must be worn at all times when aboard and underway and may not be worn by a person under the age of 16, or weighing less than 36.3 kilograms. When choosing a lifejacket follow these simple guidelines: Choose one that is suitable for the activity you are involved in and check the label to make sure that it is Canadian approved and is of the correct size. Finally, make sure it fits snugly. If you don’t wear your lifejacket, it won’t work. - Seaway News - Thursday, May 15, 2014 -

Did you hire a Bull or a Bee? There are two types of carpenters in this world. When carpenter “A” inadvertently creates a dent in a piece of wood, he says “Whoa”, or perhaps something more explicit, then takes a step back, reassesses the strategy, repairs or removes the dent, then moves forward. Carpenter “B” presumes the wood’s the problem, continues with his flawed installation process, creates more dents, then when his client complains about said dents, carpenter-B points to the retailer as the culprit for selling wood that’s too soft, or somehow lesser-than. Hint to the consumer, wood and composite products are rarely defective in a too-soft type of scenario. And two, avoid hiring carpenter B’s, even if they do come at a discount. Signs that you’ve hired a carpenter-B. They play the blame game, with an “it’s not me” kind of attitude. Even is some Chris product or supplier is ultimately to blame, a real professional doesn’t throw the other guy under the bus, he gets the details first. Two, he plays the experience card when cornered, “Why I’ve been building decks for 30 years, and …”. Terrific, 30 years of poorly designed and finished decks in Cornwall and area. Experience is good, but it ranks far behind attitude, aptitude and general intelligence, when it comes to choosing a contractor. And three, he uses a big hammer. I can’t think of a building product where the assembly instructions are stated as “push hard,

then harder, then if still not in desired position, use 10 lb. sledge to persuade compliance”, or “this product will install easier if you weight 250 lbs. and presently move boulders manually for a living, or respond to the nickname “Tank”, or enjoyed a career as a professional wrestler”. When things don’t seem to fit properly, a heavy mallet with a bit of brawn is rarely the answer. The basic test for a carpenter prior to hiring should be to give them a square peg, and through whatever means available to them, have them fit this peg into a round hole. If they return an hour or so later with a beautifully sanded dowel that slips perfectly into the hole, you’ve found your guy or gal. If the peg has been force fitted to the point where the piece is barely recognizable, a polite thanks, but no thanks, will suffice. Or, keep Emard them around to handle the coffee run, or just in case the backhoe runs out of gas. Guys who aren’t so handy with the miter saw, usually know how to handle a shovel. Finally, ask for references. Most of the better carpenters are only too ready to offer you the names of people they’ve done work for, or to even show you related projects. Seeing is believing and a portfolio of pictures detailing their work, or an onsite visit, along with the recommendation of a satisfied customer, is about the best piece of mind you will find. Good building.

RIVER RENDEZVOUS: Symposium dives into science of St. Lawrence River Adam Brazeau

CORNWALL, Ontario – The St. Lawrence River is much more than picturesque scenery running across three nations. The St. Lawrence River is much more than picturesque scenery running across three nations. Collaboration on an international level can affect change that extends well beyond its shorelines in Cornwall and many other areas. This was the main theme underpinning the 21st river symposium, hosted by the St. Lawrence River Institute of Environmental Sciences. The Aultsville Theatre at St. Lawrence College was bustling on May 7 and 8, with presentations from an international delegation of scientists, and over 20 hands-on exhibits highlighting local environmental activities and groups. “Sometimes people work in their own silos,

so it’s important that we bring scientists, policy makers, and interested members of the public together to dicuss the different issues,” said Jeff Ridal, the river institute’s executive director. The first day of the symposium explored the science of the river. Hundreds of attendees heard presentations from Environment Canada, the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, several Ontario and New York universities, the St. Regis Mohawk Tribe, and multiple conservation authorities. Henry Lickers, environmental science officer for the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne (MCA), spoke about the developing relationship of traditional knowledge and science, and the First Nations approach to environmental remediation in the river. The MCA is one of the river institute’s original partners and has been actively participating in the symposium for all 21 years. “The reason for that is the mandate of the river institute and its vision are similar to the MCA -

protecting the river and the environment,” said Lickers. The symposium spans the gamut from expert scientists, farmers, environmental groups, maple syrup producers, and government agencies mostly from the province, and several others from Akwesasne and the United States. Their common thread: environmental research that is taking place on and along the St. Lawrence River and Great Lakes systems. Together, the river institute and MCA are monitoring how climate change might impact the river and the fish swimming in it. Water quality and quantity are also ongoing areas of concern as well as protecting surrounding watersheds. From left are John St. Marseille, symposium chair and general manager of infrastructure and municipal works for the City of Cornwall, Henry Lickers, environmental science officer for the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne (MCA), and Jeff Ridal, executive director for the St. Lawrence River Institute of Environmental Sciences.

Garage sale benefits local women’s shelter A Cornwall business was transformed into a bargain hunters’ wonderland to help support a local women’s shelter. Royal LePage Performance Realty held its fifth annual National Garage Sale for Shelter Saturday, with all proceeds benefiting prevention programs to end violence in Canadian homes. The Cornwall branch raised over $4,500 which included $2,000 in matched funds from Scotiabank for Maison Baldwin House. “One hundred per cent of all funds raised at the garage sale will go towards long-term solutions to end family violence,” said Bob McCulloch, Royal LePage manager. Nearly 1,000 community members stopped by the event to show their support. The garage sale also featured a silent auction and BBQ. Michelle Dufresne, Maison Baldwin House public education/volunteer coordinator, said the non-profit organization relies on the support of

local fundraisers to help offset operational costs throught the year. “It’s very helpful when an organization comes together like this for us,” said Dufresne. “The biggest thing that we don’t have funding for is food.” The shelter helps women dealing with domestic violence and/or in need of housing. It has 10 beds and the typical length of stay is six weeks. Maison Baldwin House has a 24-hour crisis line to further assist women and their children in the transition from violent and abusive circumstances to a safe and secure environment. “We also help women with informal counselling and set them up with various services to get them back on their feet, so they can be more independent in the community,” she said. Local Royal Lepage agents, brokers, managers and administrative staff were more than glad to

Tobacco smuggling continues to haunt us Sultan Jessa Opinion SJESSA@SYMPATICO.CA

A battle to put an end to illicit tobacco trade in eastern Ontario and western Quebec has been going on for several decades. In the past four decades or so, numerous attempts have been made to break illegal tobacco ring. Following police raids, smuggling calms down for a while. Then it re-starts with more rigour. I clearly remember writing my first story on illegal tobacco trade about 30 years ago. Both, Ontario and Quebec have been losing millions of dollars in taxes in illicit tobacco trade. Just recently police forces on both sides of the Canada-U.S. border dealt what they described as

a severe blow to an illegal tobacco ring which is supposed to be linked to the Mafia and aboriginal organized crime. Officials from Quebec, Ontario, the RCMP, The Canada Border Services Agency and the U.S. department of Homeland Security raided dozens of properties. More than 30 arrests were made. Other arrests are pending. In all, $7-million worth of counter band tobacco was seized. Many aboriginal people were surprised by the official announcement which talked of close collaboration between the Mafia and aboriginals. Most strategies to put a bid dent in this illegal trade have not succeeded in fighting contraband tobacco in Canada. Can this trade be greatly reduced or wiped out? I doubt it. But, I would also add these raids should continue on a regular basis. Smokers dish out anything from $75 to $100 to legally buy a carton of cigarettes. However, if you

and destroying health standards. A recent study by the tobacco industry indicated that almost one in three cigarettes bought in Canada is purchased illegally. The rapidly expanding illicit tobacco trade should be a growing concern for federal and provincial governments and to the national law enforcement agency. Millions of dollars are lost by industry and the government through illegal tobacco product sales. Eliminating the contraband tobacco trade is not going to be easy. After the latest raid, police authorities explained the unprocessed tobacco was initially purchased by the smugglers and then transported over the border hidden in shipments of cedar mulch. Police estimate their latest 18 month investigation will put an additional $10 million in the government’s pockets. Since 2010, police and border guards have seized 30 tonnes of illegal tobacco at or near border crossings.

were to buy the same number of cigarettes in a plastic bag from an illegal source it will cost you less than $10. Many blame high taxes on tobacco products for this illegal trade. Others say if taxes are too law, it will encourage more and more people to take up smoking, which has also been blamed for heart and lung diseases. Every year, millions of unregulated cigarettes flood across the border. Law authorities believe a high percentage of illegal cigarettes are smuggled through Akwesasne Mohawk territory in New York State. One report has even suggested contraband products are even worse for their health than regulated cigarettes because they are not monitored for quality at all. It is also widely believed that proceeds from contraband cigarettes often support organized crime. Apart from destroying the tax base, the contraband cigarettes is also killing communities

Cornwall’s Lift-Off hot air balloon festival announced its lineup Thursday night, and it’s topped by some of the biggest names in Canadian music. The Kinsmen Cornwall Lift-Off 2014 board of directors unveiled the festival’s 20th anniversary lineup to a crowd of 125 at the NAV Centre in Cornwall. For many the anticipation bordered on frenzy. But the biggest announcements from LiftOff co-chairs Jason Jesmer and Mary Marleau went beyond the music. Drum roll, please... “The (weekend) pass is significantly reduced from last year. If everyone remembers it was hovering around the $50 mark,” said Jesmer. “This year, for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday there’s a price tag of $25. We

understand that it gets expensive, especially when you have a family, and we wanted to make sure that everyone can come out to enjoy the weekend.” And that was just the beginning. Opening night of the four-day festival (Thursday, July 10 to Sunday, July 13) is free. “Thursday night’s our opening ceremonies and we’ve kind of veered away from the bells and whistles. This year, we wanted to do something a little bit special for the community because it’s our 20th anniversary,” he said. “We wanted to make sure you’re all out for that night, so that night is free.” The headlining and supporting acts are: Thursday, July 10: Glass Tiger, Street Road, The Lost Boyz, and Barstool Prophets. Friday, July 11: 54-40, Trailer Five, The Paul Deslauriers Band, and The Glorious Sons. Saturday, July 12: Great Big Sea’s Alan Doyle, Mandee Woods, Hadrian’s Wall, and The Devin Cuddy Band.

CORNWALL, Ontario – Young rockers and city cops cut loose in Cornwall last Friday night. Nearly 1,000 Grade 5 to 8 students invaded the Cornwall Armoury at the 10th Cops and Rockers fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Club. Hundreds of kids eagerly stood in line for their chance to hit the dance floor at their first major outing away from school or family. “This is our largest year ever,” said Cornwall police Chief Dan Parkinson. “I’ve never seen a lineup down the street like this before.” The Cops and Rockers Much Video Dance Party began in May 2005. A total of $200,000 has been raised through the event. And this year an additional $20,000 is expected to pour in. “Over the years this has developed into a rite of passage for young students in Cornwall,” he said. Dozens of parents stood by, proudly watching as their kids got ready to cut a rug with a bunch of coppers. But cutting the cord wasn’t an easy task for many. Several parents hung around outside, wanting to supervise the dance themselves and inspect every nook and cranny of the venue. Parkinson reassured them that this event is “the safest dance on the planet.” A mix of 40 police officers and auxiliary officers as well as 30 volunteers from the Boys & Girls Club were on hand.

“It’s exciting and scary,” said city resident Jill Slaney. She stood outside with her daughter, Ashley, as her 10-year-old son Adam was busy busting moves inside the armoury. Only four short years ago, Ashley, 16, was the one dancing the night away at Cops and Rockers. “It was my first dance,” she said. “It was cool to be there. It brought everyone together, friends I hadn’t seen in a long time.” Much Video Dance production team members Chris Bimmer and Jamie Bergeron travel across the country doing nearly 100 shows a year. Bimmer has DJ’d the event for eight years, and says that it’s one of the largest dances for kids in Ontario. Jacquie Richards, executive director of the Boys & Girls Club, said the event will help pay for new equipment and fencing for the club’s outdoor play space. “This event is unique across Canada because it’s kids helping kids,” said Richards. Every student in attendance coughed up $25. “These kids have put us on the map... literally,” she said. Funds from the annual Cops and Rockers event helped purchase and renovate the Boys & Girls Club main clubhouse located at 506 First Street at the corner of Marlborough Street.

Sometimes age has no bearing Thom Racine Sports THOM_RACINE@HOTMAIL.COM

Before Game 6 between the Bruins and Habs on Monday night, CBC began their coverage with their excellent “set the stage” segment, a neatly packaged music and video montage, of past moments from this great rivalry. Then, out of the blue, they surprised us and added a icon from the past. James Dickinson Irvin III. You know, the guy who retired in 1999, the guy who owns an Order of Canada medal and at 82 years old, looks like he

did twenty years ago. Dick Irvin not only took the microphone in a pre-game chat with Ron McLean monday night, where he recounted a few memories from the early fifties, Irvin owned that mic as though he had never been away. For guys and girls my age, who grew up with Dick Canadien and Brian McMapleleaf, Irvin looked the same, sounded the same and could easily step in and do the job tonight or any night. Irvin along with Danny Gallavan, were main stays all those years ago and when I think of watching Hockey Night in Canada during my youth, both of these game calling gems, helped fuel the passion I have for the game. Many a road hockey game was

called using Gallavan enhanced words like connonating drive or spin-a-rama. Dick Irvin often leans on his memory of covering the Canadiens, a treasure trove of memories provided by his father, the legendary coach Dick Irvin II. Dick the III is a tremendous story teller, he is one of those guys that I would love to sit down with for an hour and just listen. As a result, I did some searching, looking for something that would not commonly be known about the Irvin’s, or maybe it is and I had just never heard it.

McCreath found that coach Irvin had actually played in the first ever professional hockey game that was broadcast on radio on March 15, 1923 on CKCK in Regina. Then, 29 years later, while coaching the Canadiens in Montreal on October 11, 1952, french broadcasting legend Rene Lecavalier called the first televised game that was carried on CBF-TV, which was the first CBC television station. Shown locally in Montreal, the Canadiens beat Detroit 2-1. Say what you want about the present day CBC broadcasts, with legends like Dick Irvin still around to give us five minutes every now and then, the only thing missing is the HNIC theme. I wonder what Dick would have to say about that?

When less is more - Part 2 Owner/LPGA “Class A” Teaching Professional at Archie’s Family Golf Centre

With spring finally upon us it’s a great time to review your goals for the upcoming golf season. One of the first questions I ask

my students when they come for a lesson is “What is the number one thing you would like to improve in your golf game?” Nine times out of ten, the answer is consistency. While nothing beats great instruction and dedicated practice time you can help yourself

2014 MeMbership fees

by keeping things as simple as possible. For many golfers the key to building a repeatable, effective swing comes with less not more. So the next time you are on the range keep in mind that in golf often less is more. Too fast. A smooth tempo golf swing is a beautiful thing to watch. Unfortunately, too many of my students have not made the distinction between tempo and clubhead speed. One needs to look no further than, one of my all-time favourites – Fred Couples – to appreciate that one does not need to swing “fast” to create an enormous amount of clubhead speed. Rather, we need to focus on getting into good, solid, powerful positions in order that the clubhead can travel as fast as possible through the ball. Often, when a student tries to swing the club too fast, they either over-swing which can lead to a loss of power or balance or both, or they pull themselves out of what was a good position

simply because the momentum of the move makes it impossible to maintain that position. For many fast = hard = tension. Tension kills the best of golf swings so instead try to focus on smooth effortless power. Too big. Plain and simple, most students over-swing the golf club. This is particularly prevalent with the take-away and back swing. Specifically, students tend to over-swing their arms and underutilize their shoulders when during this component of the golf swing. I frequently tell my students to think of the take-away and backswing as a turn to get you into position, rather than a wind-up. Save all the energy you have for through the ball to the target – don’t waste any in your backswing. I return again to the idea of shoulders and hips. Let your shoulders power the take-away, let your hips turn back to the target and power you through the ball to the target.

There is the ten finger grip, the overlap and the interlock. Which ever grip you use is up to the individual, however they all have some important fundamentals. The club should be held with fingers not in the palm. The next thing is the grip pressure you will want to hold the club very gently. You will want as little pressure on the club as possible. A good way to check this is if someone were to grab the club they would be able to pull it out of your hand. the reason for this is when you get to the top of your swing you will tighten your grip on the club, when you are about to strike the ball you will again tighten so if you start tight then it will just get tighter and will not allow you to release the club. Loose hands will allow you to hit the ball higher and further. For this and other great tips see your local PGA of Canada pro.65 - Seaway News - Thursday, May 15, 2014 -

Les livres gatinois sont restés dans la région


LAC-MÉGANTIC . Les livres amassés l’an dernier pour aider à rebâtir la bibliothèque de LacMégantic auront finalement aidé des organismes de Gatineau. Lors de la tragédie ferroviaire l’été dernier, la Ville de Gatineau avait notamment souhaité aider la bibliothèque en organisant une vaste collecte de livres qui aurait servi à regarnir les étagères de ce service municipal. Cette collecte a permis d’amasser plusieurs caisses de livres ou documents audiovisuels. Mais elles n’ont pas pris le chemin de Lac-Mégantic, puisque la bibliothèque en avait reçu trop. «La direction de la bibliothèque du LacMégantic a donc demandé à la Ville de Gatineau, avec qui elle était en communication, de ne pas lui envoyer de livres, indiquant qu’il serait préférable d’envoyer des fonds», nous a-t-on indiqué au Service des communications de Gatineau. Les livres amassés ont donc été remis à des organismes de Gatineau qui travaillent en alphabétisation et en promotion de la lecture, ajoute-t-on. Outre ces dons de livres, la Ville avait aussi ouvert la porte pour envoyer des employés municipaux plus tard pour aider à la revitalisation. Pour le moment, aucune demande n’a été formulée à cet effet. Rappelons que Gatineau a donné un montant de 75 000$ au fonds créé par l’Union des municipalités du Québec pour aider la population de Lac-Mégantic. Des pompiers et de l’équipement incendie avaient aussi été envoyés à Lac-Mégantic l’été dernier pour aider aux recherches.

HOROSCOPES - MAY 15 TO MAY 21 ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20: No matter how challenging it may be, slow down and give yourself time to reflect, Aries. You’re always on the go, but it’s important to slow down every now and then. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21: Taurus, steer clear of added responsibilities this week, as you already have enough on your plate. Some alone time might be worth its weight in gold. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21: You’re not easily overwhelmed by intense people or things, Gemini. Use this resilience to sail through a particularly challenging task that gets sent your way this week. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22: There is no need to figure out all of the answers in the next few days, Cancer. If something is on your mind, then take your time to weigh all of your options.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23: It could be challenging to be playful and lighthearted this week, Leo. Take every situation seriously and give ample thought to each and every decision you must make. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22: Make the best of a delicate situation at work, Virgo. Although you may not be ready for more responsibility, your reaction will be noticed by your bosses. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23: Libra, hold tight to your beliefs this week and don’t let anyone sway your opinion. You will serve as an example to others who bend whichever way the wind blows. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22: Scorpio, you may not have all of the solutions, but rest assured that you have been moving in the right direction. An interesting conversation illuminates the situation.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21: You have gained a new sense of purpose, Sagittarius, and you’re ready to put some of your plan into action. Expect a few raised eyebrows, but most people will be receptive. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20: Capricorn, you are ready for a well-deserved vacation or retreat. But you cannot run away from your responsibilities this week. Just hold out a little longer. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18: Your finances seem to be a constant source of aggravation, Aquarius. This week you are ready to take care of business and hammer out a foolproof budget. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20: Pisces, your energy level will be quite high, making it vital for you to do something productive before your stamina slows down.

We hope that new drugs and research will help improve the quality of life for Crohn’s and Colitis sufferers and lead to a cure in the future. Small Space Gardening ~ No matter how small your gardening space, you can still create and enjoy a beautiful wildlife-friendly garden. Growing plants in containers is one way of attracting butterflies, hummingbirds and other wildlife. In addition to pots, try lined wicker baskets, tins, boots or even an old pram for money-saving ways to add fun or flair to the arrangement. Make sure your containers have drainage holes at the bottom. If the holes are large, as in clay pots, put in a few shells or broken clay pot bits to retain soil while allowing for drainage. The height or width of the container should be two-thirds the height of the plant you wish to grow. For oversized pots, fill the bottom half with fillers such as plastic juice cartons or upside-down pots. This saves on soil and makes the containers lighter to move around. Group plants together by growing needs such as soil type, light preference, watering and fertilizing requirement, yet have different growth habits and bloom time for visual interest. Water daily in warm, dry weather and fertilize often, as nutrients easily get washed away. For beneficial insects and pollinators such as butterflies and hummingbirds, grow herbs like thyme, basil, lavender and mint or annuals such as marigolds, lobelia and salvia. For native perennials try violets, wild strawberries, ferns, Solomon’s seal, bee balm, asters and goldenrods. You can also grow vines such as Virginia creeper and virgin’s bower as habitat for nesting and feeding birds. Native shrubs like dogwoods, serviceberries, viburnums and juniper may be small enough for your property. They will provide blooms and berries beneficial to your winged visitors and may entice nesting for up close wildlife viewing!

As the weather turns hot, our utility bills tend to rise accordingly, but they don’t have to. There are many simple, effective ways to control your household energy and be kind to the environment at the same time. Try not to use appliances such as your oven that give off heat or moisture at the hottest times of the day. When preparing meals for your family, try seasonal recipes that require little or no cooking or grill outside on your barbecue. Also, make sure to close doors, windows and blinds to help lower the temperature. Make sure that your home’s insulation and air sealing are in good condition to help save energy. You can also create shade around the outside of your home using overhangs, awnings, trees and shrubs.
