Tri-board backs down on bussing RFP

No change for 2013-2014; after that questions remain by Jeff Green ussing contracts between Tri-Board Transportation and its 55 contractors for the 2013-2014 school year will be negotiated in the same way they have been in the past. A number of those contractors launched a law suit charging that the Request For Proposal (RFP) process that TriBoard had undertaken for awarding contracts for the next five years was unfair and discriminated against the smaller operators. Since those operators have no other potential clients for their school bussing services, the plaintiffs charged that the RFP constituted a breach of duty towards. The suit also took issue with a condition in the RFP that gave Tri-Board leave to disqualify any operator who has entered into legal proceedings against them. At the preliminary court hearing, which took place at the Belleville Courthouse last Thursday, October 18, the lawyer for the drivers, Jonathan Lisus, asked Justice Scott of the Ontario Supreme Court for an interlocutory injunction stopping the RFP process while the law suit proceeds. The lawyer for Tri-Board initially argued that the court should reject the suit outright, but when Justice Scott declined to do so, the court was adjourned and negotiations took place in the judges chambers. A couple of hours later, Scott came back and said TriBoard had withdrawn the RFP; that contracts would be negotiated for the 2013-14 year with the existing operators and that the plaintiffs are at liberty to pursue the suit. The matter of who will pay court costs was left to the discretion of the trial judge who ends up presiding over the matter. Mary Stinson, one of the operators who launched the suit, said that the operators consider this a major victory. Steve Wowk, the Chief Executive Office of Tri-Board Transportation, said that the decision to withdraw the RFP does not represent the end of the RFP process. “We decided to withdraw the RFP at this time because if we moved forward to fight the injunction, we would have jeopardised the process, which would have been unfair to the operators who were about to submit bids,” Wowk said. The deadline for responding to the RFP for 2013-2017 was October 31. He also said that the provision giving Tri-Board leave to disqualify any bidders that enter into legal proceedings against them is not unusual. “It is starting to be pretty standard practice” he said, “It does not mean we will disqualify anyone, it just gives us the choice.” Wowk said that Tri-Board intends to defend the RFP document against any legal challenges and re-submit it in 2014 for the five subsequent years. However, it will not be Steve Wowk who carries this forward since he will be retiring later this fall. Mary Stinson said, “Our lawyers told us they did not think we will see another RFP from Tri-Board.” The News attempted to contact Jonathan Lisus on Tuesday (October 23) but he did not return our call before our publication deadline for this week.

Forty Clarendon Central students from all grades attended the municipal office for Local Government Week activities on October 15. It was a great opportunity for the kids and teachers to see what is involved with the day-to-day operations in North Frontenac Township. The children visited all the department offices, and were particularly interested in the big maps that Evan Sepa had printed off for them, on which they were able to pinpoint where they live. They were also fascinated with his big printer. After the tour, members of the fire department barbecued hamburgers and hot dogs for the kids.

Proposal for KFL&A riding A

by Jeff Green

t the Frontenac County Council meeting on Oct. 17, CAO Liz Savill presented the submission she will be making to the electoral boundary commission for council’s approval. The submission makes a number of points that have been made by Hastings and Lennox and Addington County and others ever since the proposed boundaries were released in early September. Among other features, those boundaries would split Frontenac County into three ridings. As Savill’s submission acknowledges, all of the other proposals are similar to the current riding boundaries, in which Frontenac County is in a riding that includes Lanark County. Arguing that Lanark County is more oriented to Ottawa and Frontenac County to Kingston, Savill proposes a Frontenac, Lennox and Addington riding that includes the former Kingston and Pittsburgh townships in rural Kingston. This would shrink the Kingston and the Islands riding but would create

a riding anchored by the populations living within proximity to Highway 401, including the Town of Napanee and Loyalist Township, as well as parts of South Frontenac and Kingston. In addition, it would create a riding of Hastings-Belleville and calls for a new riding of Lanark-Carleton, which would include the rural west end of Ottawa and all of Lanark County. Savill points out that Frontenac County has only been coupled with Lanark for the past 10 years. Her proposal is similar to the way things were before that, with the exception of the alteration of Kingston and the Islands, which is an established riding, but one that has grown in population to the point that it is now 17.9% higher than the norm of 106,000. The proposed Kingston and the Islands riding would be closer to the norm, but the Kingston Frontenac riding would be well short of the quota at 90,000. The presentation will form the Frontenac County submission to the public hearing on electoral boundaries on November 8 in Kingston.

Clock is ticking on Parham library branch by Jeff Green he Parham library branch is located in a portable classroom attached to Hinchinbrooke Public School, and with the school being slated to close as early as June 30 next year, members of Central Frontenac Council are starting to wake up to the fact that some planning will need to be done on their part to keep a branch open in Parham or vicinity. Councilor John Purdon, who is the Frontenac County Council representative to the Library Board, sounded the alarm. “The rural branches are just as busy as the urban branches are, on a per capita basis, but in terms of total use the numbers are low, and once the school closes in Parham the numbers may get lower. We can’t have the services in the small branches that they have in the big branches, and the trend is towards more services, more programming and bigger branches. The tendency in recommendations to the board is continually towards decreasing rural branches. I don’t agree, but I would say we need to fix our facilities so we can maintain services. We don’t own the Parham branch;

T

it is on school board property. So we have to think about purchasing the portable and setting it up at some location off the school property. But that is something we need to get going on,” Purdon said. Earlier, in response to a question from Councilor Norm Guntensperger about the viability of the Mountain Grove branch and the possibility of moving it to a new location, perhaps in an addition to the Mountain Grove Fire Hall, Township Chief Administrative Officer Shawn Trépanier said the former township office building that is currently housing the library “is not safe”, a statement he retracted a few minutes later. “We have not had any reports declaring that building unsafe,” Mayor Janet Gutowski reminded council. “It has its challenges but there is nothing about it being unsafe. As far as library branches are concerned, we need to recognise that we have not been paying any of the costs of the Parham branch until now, because the school board has covered it, so whatever we do will increase the budget. We need to do our strategic plan, and we need to determine if we can afford

to have one of everything in all four of the districts.” “This council has already taken a position on four districts, four library branches. To revisit that would take a 2/3 majority vote,” said Guntensperger. Councilor Snyder interrupted. “Parham has a problem right now. We need to start looking at this right away,” he said. Inching towards County Roads – Public Works Manager Mike Richardson reported that at their second combined meeting, the public works managers from all four Frontenac County townships discussed

Public works ten-year plan for South Frontenac -

P

ublic Works Manager Mark Segsworth presented his department’s 2013 Capital budget and ten-year Plan for Council’s consideration. Goals included: 1] ‘Vertical’ Facilities: to develop a good understanding of the conditions of township buildings, their energy use, accessibility and any asbestos issues, 2] Equipment replacement for 2013: two light trucks and two dump trucks, one of them a tri-axle, 3] Waste disposal site improvements: weigh scale, fencing, attendant booths, and partial capping, 4]Transportation: salt management plans for Hartington and Bedford, office renovations at Keeley, Hartington and Bedford, and village beautification, and 5] ‘Horizontal Facilities’: a proposed schedule of repairs and upgrades of roads and bridges for the next two years. Segsworth said that his proposed roadwork schedule does not necessarily meet all the Township needs. Overall estimated budget of just over $7 million is up $800,000 from last year, and proposes drawing $500,000 more from reserves than last year. This information will form a substantial part of Council’s budget deliberations in the next few weeks Councillor Tindal asked: “What would you say if a group of private citizens offered to pay to resurface a public road?” “We’d be very, very interested,” said Segsworth. Council Composition Up For Discussion CAO Orr, referring to the strategic plan’s commitment “to improve governance and processes,” said that Council might wish to consider: increasing or decreasing the total number of positions on Council, changing the method of election from the present system of having two representatives from each of four districts, establishing a new position of deputy mayor, or altering or removing district boundaries. This led to

lively discussion, and the conclusion that Orr should draw up a discussion framework and process, which would include public consultation, for Council’s consideration.

Municipal Pound Services Each year, the Township impounds, at the Kingston Humane Society, approximately 75 - 80 untagged dogs caught running at large. At present, because of a mid-year fee adjustment by the KHS, Council pays $55 per animal, plus a new administrative billing fee of $25 for any month in which a dog is sheltered. The 2012 budget for pound services is $3300. However, the Humane Society has announced they are looking to recover fully the cost of offering pound services, which would raise the Township’s contract to a minimum of $10,000, based on 2011 impound numbers. In order to cover this raise in fees and unknown costs such as veterinary fees, Orr proposed the township raise its rates to $175 or the return of a lost animal, but expressed concern that fewer resi-

Central Frontenac - continued from page 1 the possibility of seeking to have Road 38, and Highways 506/509 and 95 on Wolfe Island treated as county roads in granting applications, freeing up their host township to seek grants for other priorities. Richardson said that the first step will be to combine the road usage and level of repair information that each township gathers already. “North, Central and South Frontenac all use the same program and the same engineering firm, Golder, so we will be asking them what would be involved in combining the information. Mark Segsworth, the works manager in South Frontenac, will be having traffic counts down on Road 38 all the way to Highway 7, and maybe on 509 as well. There has been some interest from senior management at the Ministry of Transportation to look at this further,” he said. Clean those recyclables In a report to council on the state of the waste management system, co-ordinator Kyle Labbett reported that recycling levels have increased substantially since the clear bag garbage system came into place in April, but this has brought another problem to the fore, contaminated recycling, which ends up costing the township money in lost revenue from its recycling contractor. “To fix this problem we will be having the site attendants sort through recycling with residents to ensure that only recyclable items are ending up in the bins. We will also be starting an education program with residents to ensure that recycling is being rinsed out prior to coming to the waste sites. This will also be done by sorting through recycling and educating the residents,” Labbett said in his report to Council. Property standards are back – Council was presented with two options for an updated property standards/safe property bylaw. Council rejected one of them as too stringent for a rural municipality and even saw some issues with the looser bylaw. CAO Trépanier will work through the bylaw and use it to update the existing safe properties bylaw and will bring it back to council.

dents might claim lost animals as the cost increases. Currently, all but 10 or 12 South Frontenac animals are claimed or adopted out each year. He also noted that there were few if any alternatives to the pound’s services, due to the required inspections and tighter regulations now governing private pounds. There was general Council agreement that the new fee be increased to $150.

The Point Park Lighting and Fundraising In response to a recent query from Council, Treasurer Fragnito reported that in 2011, $66,865 was spent on the Point Park lighting project, of which $31,000 came from the fundraising efforts of the Point Park Improvement committee, and the remainder from the Township’s Parkland Fund. A further $66,506 was spent on the lights in 2012, all from the Parkland fund. The Point Park Improvement fund now has a balance of $831.21.

Sharbot Lake Farmers Market report In a delegation to council, Mary de Bassecourt and Peggy Green reported a very successful year at the Sharbot Lake Farmers Market. Market Manager de Bassecourt reported that vendor numbers, attendance and vendor sales were up this year. Annual sales rose from $31,500 last year to $43,600 this year and on one single market day on August 4, 393 people visited. Word of mouth and regular advertising are what attracted the crowds. Marker vendor Peggy Green extended her thanks to council for securing the beach as the location. “I think the location is a win/win situation for everyone. We enjoy the visitors and the visitors enjoy us and that makes for a lovely combination.” Night time Santa Parade in Tichborne? Councilor Bill Snyder said organizers of the Tichborne/ Parham Santa Claus parade are hoping to make the parade an after-dark event this year. After some discussion regarding safety issues, CAO Shawn Trépanier said he would speak to Public Works Manager Mike Richardson, the OPP and emergency services to insure that safety for participants and parade goers would not be compromised. He said he would have an answer at council’s next meeting on November 13. Guard rails pose safety issue at Hwy 7 and Arden Road Councilor Jeff Matson brought to council’s attention a safety issue posed by the height of the guardrails on the south side of Highway 7, which run east of the Arden Road. Matson pointed out that due to the slope in the Arden Road at that intersection, drivers who are exiting the Arden Road onto Hwy 7 and either heading straight across it or turning west onto the highway have difficulty seeing the oncoming traffic traveling west on the highway. “A few people have pointed it out to me and I drove by there myself and saw that they are right. You have to peer through the rails to try to see the oncoming traffic along Hwy 7”. Staff were directed to bring up the issue with the MTO.

Councilors get snippy at County

M

embers of Frontenac County Council took turns objecting to a number of late-year initiatives and relatively minor expenditures (relative to the $40 million county budget) at their penultimate regular meeting of 2012 on October 17. These objections did not result in outright rejections of any proposed measures, with councillors opting only to defer considerations of the matters to future meetings. Frontenac Islands Councilor David Jones started the ball rolling when he questioned a proposal from County Labour Relations Specialist Colleen Hickey that a Corporate Services Organisational review be undertaken at a cost of $40,000. In a report, Hickey pointed out that there are now 21 corporate service positions at the county, serving both Council and its committees as well as the two front-line services offered by the County (Fairmount Home and Frontenac Paramedic Services).

1970 Of those, seven were createdSINCE after a 2006 organisational review of the county was completed. These positions include Hickey’s own position as well as an IT Specialist, Occupational Health Nurse (Fairmount), Manager of Sustainability Planning, GIS Specialist, Communications Specialist, and Community Planner. Even with this increase, the report says that corporate services are facing “significant workload challenges and expectations placed on its services and activities. Primarily these increased challenges are attributable to increased provincial reporting and legislative requirements and to the six Council committees now fully operational.” “I don’t understand why this is coming before us in the midst of a budget year. Why the rush?” asked Councilor David Jones. County Chief Administrative Officer Liz Savill replied, “The urgency is that we have been living with problems for years. We want

O

n Monday, October 15, Premier Dalton McGuinty held a news conference to announce two things: one, that he was stepping down as premier, and two, that he was proroguing the Legislature for the next six months. A little over two years ago, when the prime minister prorogued Parliament, there were a number of people who wrote scathing attacks. Helen Forsey, on January 7, 2010 wrote an “Open Letter to Scott Reid” in this paper that stated “your party has so far managed to get away with distorting and denying the facts and making such a mockery of our democratic system”. In response, Joanne Pickett submitted these comments on January 21, 2010, that “Mr. Harper’s decision to prorogue government for the second time in just over a year in order to deflect public attention from recent scandals involving his party’s incompetence and questionable practices is both contemptuous and cowardly.

Never one to be left out, local Liberal stalwart John McEwen complained in this paper that same month that elected officials under prorogation would still collect their salaries. He wrote “[Mr. Reid] will continue to collect his pay to not go to work”. I suspect these three individuals will take great exception to this letter. They will object to the use of their published words in this case. No doubt, they will argue that the two situations are completely different. On that last part, I will concede the point. The difference is that the prime minister had the guts to stick around and face the verdict of the voting public. Ontarians will get no such privilege when it comes to Mr. McGuinty. - Brent Cameron

ravo to the Independent School Bus Operators Association (ISBOA) and its local members as they go to court to fight for the survival of their vital service. Local school bus operators are exactly the kind of business that our rural communities need – economically sensible, "human scale" and environmentally conscious. They are the people we rely on to care for our youngsters on our winding and sometimes dangerous roads, and they are also typically among our most active and committed citizens. The modest size and local roots of these businesses ensure responsibility and on-going responsiveness to the community. How the "Tri-Board" and the three boards of education involved can possibly even attempt to justify the corporate-driven "RFP" process is beyond me. I recall a couple of years ago when ISBOA pressed for, and won, a moratorium on that process, citing the very concerns outlined in the current lawsuit. The fact that the rules now allow school boards and "consortia" to use alternative systems for allocating the contracts clearly signals that

the validity of

The outrageous provision disqualifying any potential bidder who has dared to challenge the powers-that-be just adds insult to flagrant injury. Like the recurring struggles to keep our local schools, libraries and other community services, the school bus operators' fight deserves our full and vocal support. As rural citizens, we must make sure that our local businesses survive and that our children's welfare is not traded off for corporate gain. I hope you will publish suggestions for how we can help in this case. It is a matter of urgency. - Helen Forsey

NOTICE TO ALL MY PATIENTS As is now generally known in Verona, Dr. Piotr Oglaza will be transferring from the Sharbot Lake site of the Rural Kingston Family Health Organization to the Verona Medical Clinic in January 2013. My practice size is over 2,000 patients which is about double the normalsized practice for a family physician. This has made it difficult for me to provide care in as timely a way as I might have liked on occasion, but in the absence of a second physician my nursing staff and I have done our best. Dr. Oglaza’s arrival will enable me to transfer a number of my patients to him. This will enable us to improve patient wait times, and enable me to get out of the clinic before 7 or 8 at night! I plan to downsize my patient load in the immediate future by 500 patients effective 1 January 2013. When you come to the office for your appointment in the coming months, I will be asking you if you will help me by agreeing to become Dr. Oglaza’s patient. No one is absolutely required to make that change, but it will help me if you agree. I know that many of the men in my practice have been wanting a male physician. Well, gentlemen, here is your chance! You don’t have to wait for an appointment to make the change. You can volunteer. Just come to the office, and sign a roster form. In routine daily practice, Dr. Oglaza and I plan to practice as a team, so there will be days when he sees some of my patients, and I see some of his. I would like to thank you all in advance for considering my request. And I know that you, my patients, will all help us to make Dr. Oglaza feel welcome here in Verona. Sincerely, Laurel J.

The folic acid found in prenatal vitamin formulas is essential in preventing neural tube defects in the developing fetus. These defects can develop within 28 days after conception so it is important to start taking prenatal supplements about three months before planning to become pregnant. Continue taking them throughout pregnancy and breastfeeding as well. Donating blood is a very selfless thing to do. It easy to do, too, and you can’t catch any disease by donating. You can donate every eight weeks. If each Canadian eligible to donate did it only twice a year, there would be enough blood for all medical needs. Our Canadian blood system is the safest it has ever been. Readers of this column know we are great supporters of regular walking as an exercise. Using walking poles can be useful especially when walking over uneven terrain. Used properly, the poles help exercise the upper body muscles more and help us maintain our balance better.

Many medicines originate in nature, so it’s no surprise when it’s found that the lavender plant reduces the number of falls in the elderly in nursing homes. In the study, they used patches infused with lavender comparing it to unscented patches. However, lavender oil could provide the same benefit. Whatever the source of new medication therapies, we make it our job to know about them. Use our pharmacists as a reliable source of drug information.

· Mississippi Madawaska Land Trust Conservancy (MMLTC) invites local landowners and nature lovers to a “Caring for Your Land Workshop” at the Denbigh hall on Tues. Oct. 30, 7-9pm. The catalyst for the workshop was the recent acquisition of the Rose Hill Nature Reserve, which was donated by two descendants of the Fritsch family of Denbigh. The workshop will offer the opportunity to learn about the rich natural features of the area, including species at risk, and the role individual landowners can play to be good stewards of their own bit of paradise. The workshop will provide tips on actions landowners can take to develop a natural habitat that will encourage further biodiversity. A Ministry of Natural Resources official will be able to answer questions related to implications for landowners having species at risk on their property. Landowners will learn how to report sightings to advance understanding of the current range and habitat use of at-risk species and other plants and wildlife of particular interest.

· A gathering of the Gurnsey brothers and sisters brought many folks “home” to Henderson for a visit to share memories, including some from Napanee, Wolfe Island, London, Yarker and Timmins. Some also visited loved ones at Pine Meadow, and took a tour of the well-kept cemetery, remembering with fondness departed loved ones who were such good role models, and support in their lives. It was great to have the Henderson road signs in place and also to have the roads in such good condition for our reunion. · A special welcome to “Mazie”, dog (Chesapeake Bay) and friend of Rick Belwa, who now calls Henderson home. · Henderson United Church members will be on the road this Sunday, Oct. 28, for a union service at the Arden site, 10 a.m. Thus the Henderson site will not be meeting for that one Sunday. It's fun when the whole church takes a road trip. · Speaking of road trips, our Pine Meadow folks took some road trips in the summer to Beaver Lake where the Tamworth Lions Club arranged a BBQ and pontoon boat ride which was a fun and special time; Sand Lake for a picnic; and of course they attended and or-

ganized their own Summer Olympics, which included sponge toss, karaoke, and a closing baseball competition with Extendicare Kingston. Fall activities feature guest musicians, pie making, tea parties, cider, bingo, euchre, pumpkin carving, candy bag project, costume parade, Halloween party, welcoming trick or treaters, shopping trips, and Residents Council elections. It's a fun and happening place for sure. · On Sun. Oct. 28 Harlowe Wesleyan and Standard Church will feature Ralph and Carol (James) McInnes ministering in music at 11 a.m. All are welcome. This popular couple, originally from the Plevna area, went to high school with many from our area so it will be like old times. Deepest sympathy to the family and friends of the late Major Max Young, a retired Salvation Army Church officer, spouse of Dorothy (Thompson) Young, who died this past week. Max, who will be recalled with fondness for his children's religious puppet shows and inspiring spiritual messages to young and old, had roots in the Harlowe area.

When a borrower finds a book that is absolutely great, a special “Pick” sticker is put on it. Then other borrowers can easily see which books are recommended. Kathy's Pick is "Sarah's Key". During the roundup of French Jews by French police during WWII, Sarah and her parents are taken. Sarah locks her little brother into a closet to keep him safe from the police and promises to return. Years later a journalist uncovers clues to the story of Sarah, her brother and the key. Woven through this book is not only the story of Sarah's key, but also the journalist’s discovery of her husband's infidelity, his family history and decisions she must make about her future.

here was much to celebrate at this year’s seventh annual Bubba Bowl, the double-header evening football match at Sydenham High School, which took place on October 18. Bubba Bowl continues to attract thousands of fans. Not only were the two games played for the first time under the newly installed permanent field lights but it was by far the best weather the event has seen since its inception seven years ago. Bubba Bowl is named for Alex (Bubba) Turcotte, a grade 12 student and former player with the Sydenham Golden Eagles who passed away in his sleep 11 years ago. The event was the brainchild of Jim Latimer, head coach for the Junior Golden Eagles. Both junior and senior Golden Eagles teams blasted their Bayridge opponents on Thursday night in two back-to-back games, which made this year’s Bowl definitely one to remember. From the outset when the juniors took to the field it became clear that the Golden Eagles were out to win. Both games proved to be extremely one-sided in the Eagles’ favor, likely due to the fact that Bayridge’s teams only had a few coaches out. Sydenham’s junior assistant coach, Gord McLellan, said that the lack of coaches on the sidelines for the junior Blazers game definitely put them at a disadvantage. “We have five or six coaches compared to their two, which makes things very difficult for them. It's almost impossible to have a team of 35-40 players and to do a good job with so few coaches. We definitely had the edge." That being said, Sydenham’s juniors did their part too. Brodie Latimer scored two touchdowns in the first quarter, with Monnier scoring the third, bringing the score to 20-0. In the second, quarterback Leslie scored a touchdown and O’Brien another, with Whitehead getting the two Crow Lake – Desirable 1042 sq. ft. conversions plus a 3 point bungalow on spring-fed lake; enjoy 300’ of field goal bringing the score pristine waterfront & 2.5 acres of private to 37-0 at the half.

cies. She also looked to the future and to the upcoming addition to the building, which will allow rental space for other agencies that will be sharing space in the hall. The hall will now act as the home for the numerous programs the SFCS offers for seniors in the community, as well as other recreational activities like Tai Chi and the VON Smart Program. It will also be the permanent home for various care and support groups and will also be the new home for the First Sydenham Brownies and Sparks. The permanent heritage exhibit in the hall consists of four exquisite storytelling quilts made by artist, author and local historian Wilma Kenny, along with numerous historical photographs from the area. Wilma gave the final address and spoke of the rich history of the area and how the hall will become a new hub for artists and musicians in the community. The following day, October 20, the celebrations continued at the new centre with performances and presentations by a wide array of local artists, musicians, actors and authors, all a testament to the fact that the Grace Hall Community Centre has indeed ignited a new spark for community arts

made one final drive near the game’s end with Crozier scoring a touchdown and Barrett kicking the convert for another point, bringing the final score to 52-7 for the Golden Eagles. Sydenham’s seniors’ game followed pretty much the same pattern, with Babcock scoring the first touchdown in the first quarter and with Pat Vanderholst following with two more in the first half. Dearborne scored the last touchdown in the first half, bringing the score to 29-0 at the end of the second quarter. It was during the third quarter and following Aubertin’s touchdown, when the seniors were leading by 36, that Sydenham’s coaches made the decision to freeze their points on the scoreboard at 36 in memory of Alex Turcotte, who wore the number 36 when he played for the Golden Eagles. The Eagles continued to blast the Blazers right up until the end when Pennock scored the final touchdown of the game, which left the Blazers licking their wounds with a final score of 57-0. Sydenham’s seniors are now tied for second place with five wins and one loss. They will play away at Holy Cross today, Thurs. Oct. 25 at 2pm. The Juniors, who have 3 wins and 2 losses, will also play at Holy Cross later in the afternoon at 3:45pm. BUSINESS CARD SIZE

Sharbot Lake Natural Health Fair - November 3 & 4 Natural Wellness Event Returns to Sharbot Lake - supporting NF food Bank After a one-year hiatus, the Natural Wellness Event is back. It will be carried over two days this time around, at St James Major Catholic Church Hall (14608 Hwy 38) See inset for details. More than 16 presenters will be on hand to talk about and demonstrate their techniques in a variety of fields. Meet professionals, specialists and therapists in healthy food, snacks and nutrition, herbal and vitamin support, massage, natural healing, yoga, and QiGong. New businesses have joined with previous to create a beautiful blend of options for you to explore. Crystals, healing stones, jewelry, books and so much more await you. Christmas is just around the corner. Admission to the event is free on both days with a food item for the North Frontenac Food Bank. The Frontenac Community Futures Development Corporation is graciously funding the Jeremy Bennett Wellness Weekend in part, while the Central Frontenac Economic Development Committee has backed it, making this a true Community Event. Other local businesses are becoming involved with supporting ads in next week’s paper. You can join in by calling Tracie at 613 267-3946. International Motivational Speaker, Author and Professional Magician, Jeremy Bennett will be adding another important dimension to Wellness and Better Living. On his way through to Toronto, from the East Coast, Jeremy will be speaking on both Friday and Saturday night (November 2 and 3) at 7 pm. At the age of 12, Jeremy was diagnosed with what the doctors termed as the worst case of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) they had ever seen. They informed him that he would suffer from the incessant tapping and repetitive actions for the rest of his life. They were wrong! By harnessing the incredibly powerful tool we all possess (The Mind), Jeremy was able to overcome the obstacle of OCD. In do-

ing so, he developed the ability to share his story and techniques to help others overcome life obstacles they may face. On Friday night, his presentation is “How to Grow Your Business: Against All Odds. Bennett describes his business seminar in the following way: “In this presentation I will be introducing how important and crucial the ‘thinking’ process is in determining

Most people don’t realize that it’s not the talents or skills that will determine whether or not we attract the business we want to attract BUT it’s the thoughts we hold that are the determining factors.

past OR fearing something that could potentially happen in the future and these ‘fears’ DO NOT have to be about our business in order to hinder the results and productivity of our business.” In addition to working on ways to alter the way people think about their business, Bennett will also show different approaches to dealing with potential and current customers, and will introduce several subliminal messages that business owners project to their potential clients that hinder their ability to sell a product/service effectively. On Saturday night, November 3, also at 7 pm, Jeremy will give a seminar for everyone, called “The Power of the Mind: Overcome any Challenge”. In this presentation he will talk about the massive impact that our multitude of thoughts has on our overall health and wellbeing. “Stress is a huge determining factor on whether or not we develop disease. I show my audience, with very clear-cut examples of what their thoughts are doing to their health both physically and mentally. I show them the science of how important it is to realize that one of the main determining factors of health is what they think and how they think.   I also show them the most important element of their thinking; the subconscious mind; the part of our mind that controls our health and well being. I offer ideas and techniques on how to change the beliefs held there. This is vital in understanding health and vital in understanding why we attract all the situations we attract into our lives.” Both presentations will be entertaining as well as educational and will include some magic to illustrate the message being given. Jeremy Bennett’s presentations are endorsed by a number the most respected self-help gurus from around the world, including the renowned Doctor Effie Chow; former health advisor to Bill Clinton. Jeremy Bennett is the author of “The Power of the Mind: How I Beat OCD”, and is the star and co-producer of “Believe” an international television show that explains and demonstrates the true strength of the human mind. The overall message presented by everyone involved in this Event is that of…reducing stress and anxiety, eating well, healthy thinking and getting back to a natural way of living; a better way of living.

The fate of extracurriculars at local schools H By Julie Druker

eather Highet, principal of Sharbot Lake High School, reported that staff will be running all of the regular extra-curricular activities at the school. “It is my understanding that the federation has directed staff that their involvement in extra-curriculars is voluntary. Fortunately all of our staff here are volunteering to run their regular programs so we have not had to cancel any of our fall programs” Highet said earlier this month. “This is a small community and the teachers are thinking about what is best for the students and it is great for the students here to have such dedicated staff members. “ The Joe Goodfellow Memorial Race October 1 would have been the last and final running of the Joe Goodfellow Memorial Race at Hinchinbrooke Public School, which has taken place annually on the first Monday in October for the last 11 years. The popular race was named in honor of Joe Goodfellow, a student at Hinchinbrooke Public School who passed away tragically in a car accident in 2000 at the age of 19. The race was initiated by Dan Kimmerer, who was Joe’s cross-country coach at HPS, and it was set up as an invitational race in Joe’s memory. In its first year over 1000 students participated and it was decided in its third year to make it one of three qualifying races, (the Region 3 Meet) for the Limestone District School Board. Kathy Goodfellow, Joe's mother, said that this was to have been the last race, as Hinchinbrooke is slated to close in 2013. However, the race did not happen this year due to the recent decision by some elementary school teachers at the Limestone District School Board to discontinue extra-curricular activities. As a result, three regional qualifying meets, of which the Joe Goodfellow Memorial Race was one, were canceled. (The other two were the Fort Henry Run and the South Fredericksburgh Run). Hinchinbrooke PS did hold a non-competitive Fun Run at the school on October 1, and HPS students did compete in the final LESAA District Cross-Country Meet at Fort Henry on Oct. 9. When asked about her feelings regarding the cancellation of the memorial race, Kathy Goodfellow said, “I guess many people were disappointed. But people were very considerate in letting us know and we were very grateful for that.”

Mt. Everest Climb for Kids I

t will not be the first time that Leslie Myles of Sydenham has climbed mountains to raise funds for school kids. In January 2009, Myles, who is the managing director of the Limestone Learning Foundation, summited Mount Kilimanjaro in Kenya in the Kili Climb for Kids. In the process she raised over $60,000 for the Amani Children's House in Tanzania, a home and safe haven for homeless children in that country. In mid-November Leslie will once again be strapping on her hiking boots and heading this time for Kathmandu, Nepal where she, along with 13 other Canadian climbers, will Lesley Myles be embarking on a 12-day trek to the base camp of Mount Everest, which lies at an elevation of 17,598 feet. Myles has been training regularly for the trip and is currently collecting donations and pledges to raise funds for school children locally through programs offered through the Limestone Learning Foundation (LLF) and globally for children in Nepal through the Sir Edmund Hillary Foundation. The funds raised for the latter charity will be used to help build a high school in the Solu-Khumbu region of Nepal. “I feel so lucky to be able to be doing something like this", Leslie said when I interviewed her at Loughborough Public School on October 19. “Not only do I personally get to enjoy the adventure and journey to the other side of the world and the climb itself but I also get a chance to see the culture, to see how people live in Nepal and to better understand what the children there are most in need of.” She says she is a real adventure seeker who loves traveling, physical fitness and the great outdoors but more importantly, “By far the biggest motivation for me is the opportunity to give back to school kids both here and there and to have a chance to make a difference in their futures .. I'm so honored to be able to do this kind of work. I love to be able to help kids both here and around the world.” Donations will be used to support the various creative programs offered through the LLF, the charitable arm of the Limestone District School Board, which enhances student programming by attracting donations and grants for innova-

PAGE 9 by Julie Druker tive learning projects in local schools. Monies donated to the Sir Edmund Hillary Fund will be used to complete the building of a high school in Nepal that serves 150 students. The new school will enable the grade 11 and 12 students to study science, one area of study that has been sorely lacking there. Myles, who has been on the LLF board of directors for 11 years prior to becoming its managing director last year, said that this kind of work suits her to a tee. She recalled that in the 1960s, after his team successfully crossed a mountain, Sir Edmund Hillary asked one of the Sherpas, “If there is anything I can do for the Sherpa people, what do you think that

would be?” To which his Sherpa friend replied, “Our children have eyes but are blind and cannot see. We want you to open their eyes by building a school in our village.” In that same vein Myles and her climbing team are helping children both locally and globally to see a bigger and brighter future. Tomorrow, Friday October 26, Leslie will be giving a presentation at the Sydenham Legion from 5:30-10:30pm. Join her for an evening of food, entertainment and fun to raise money for her Everest trip. Come hear about what she is doing to prepare for the trip and what the money raised will support both here at home and abroad, in Nepal. Anyone wanting to make a donation or a pledge for the climb can do so locally by visiting www.limestone.on.ca/llf/. Global donations can be made to the Sir Edmund Hillary Fund by visiting www.thesiredmundhillaryfoundation.ca

County gives Arden a boost with $10,000 grant F

or two years, the Friends of Arden have been tackling everything from major clean ups, to park improvements, sign installations and trail building. All of the initiatives have been undertaken with volunteer labour and the only funding the group has received has been from private donations, although they have successfully petitioned Central Frontenac Council for road and infrastructure improvements. Now, Frontenac County has awarded

the grass roots community group a grant of $10,000, through the County’s Support for Smaller Scale Sustainability Initiatives, which allocates $50,000 each from federal gas tax rebate revenue. “The group is thrilled that our application was successful and that everyone’s efforts are being recognized.

I think we should put something in the motion about that,” said South Frontenac Mayor Gary Davison. In the end, the matter was deferred to the County Finance committee for review.
