South Frontenac Mayor to get a raise of about six per cent per year for next four years

FROM $29.99

Gazette News — The next Mayor of South Frontenac Township will be getting a raise, but the Deputy Mayor’s and Councilors’ salaries will remain the same, following a report done by a three-person citizens committee looking at Council remuneration. With the two declared candidates for mayor, Ron Vandewal and Al McPhail, abstaining from the vote, the rest of Council voted unanimously to approve the pay hike at its regular meeting last week in Sydenham. Currently, the Mayor’s base salary sits at $19,422.51 per year plus meeting fees ($50 for a half day meeting and $150 for a full day). The committee’s report estimated meeting fees for 2012 at $3,600, which would put the full compensation for the Mayor at $23,023. The committee recommended an increase of about 25 per cent or $5,793, which would be phased in over four years and include meeting fees. In other words, the Mayor’s salary effective Dec. 1, 2014 would be $24,471.25; effective Dec. 1, 2015 would be $25,919.50; effective Dec. 1, 2016 would be $27,367.75; and effective Dec. 1, 2017 would be $28,816. The increases represent a raise of about six per cent per year. The committee also recommended that the remuneration for the Deputy Mayor remain at $13,656.23 plus meeting fees (total of about $17,256) and Councilors’ remuneration remain at $11,630.25 plus meeting fees (total of about $15,887).

The adjustment procedure for Councilors’ remuneration remains tied to the percentage change negotiated for unionized employees. The report noted that “in South Frontenac, there is no defined role for the Deputy Mayor beyond serving as Councilor and chairing Council meetings in the Mayor’s absence. Other responsibilities are upon request of the Mayor and are currently compensated as additional meetings.� In its report, the committee said it favoured the ‘plus meeting fees’ approach for Councilors to “continue to offer flexible compensation for Councilors who more actively participate on committees.� The committee based its decisions on pay equity comparator groups of other municipalities, based on comparable size (population/households), similar employment markets (geographic location), equivalent services, similar rural/urban mix of households and similar seasonal influx. A chart along with the report cited eight municipalities similar to South Frontenac suggesting the average compensation for mayors is $28,816 including meeting fees. It is not known where the population figures came from; for example, South Frontenac’s population is listed as 14,807 when the 2011 Census placed the figure at 18,113 and Mississippi Mills at 11,279 (2011 Census was 12,385) but the relative numbers are similar. Speaking for the committee, member Sandy Cameron said the process was “very democratic with many opinions being expressed. “But we all totally agreed on the results.�

Council Cop: City hires Integrity Commissioner to help police itself By Bill Hutchins Reporter

Kingston Heritage - The City of Kingston is adding a new position to its payroll – someone whose job it will be to keep tabs on the conduct of council. By a close 7-6 vote, councillors decided to hire a permanent part-time Integrity Commissioner at an estimated cost of $50,000 a year. “This is really a service to the public,” said Coun. Bryan Paterson, who supported the new position. He says similar watchdogs of political ethics are hired by the federal and provincial governments to provide an extra layer of transparency. “Why would we want to exclude Kingston from that same level of oversight?” said Paterson. According to a staff report, the Integrity Commissioner will be hired on retainer fee, plus other legal costs, to respond to complaints from either politicians or the public concerning council’s Code of Conduct. The Code, adopted in 2010, sets out guidelines by which elected officials must govern themselves such as avoiding a conflict of interest, and not accepting gifts, injuring the reputation of staff or leaking confidential information. Some councillors complained they remain unsure about the investigator’s role or how it will benefit taxpayers. “I’m not sure what this is all about,” said Coun. Liz Schell. Coun. Rick Downes argued tax dollars should be used on more important things. “Why do we need another bureaucrat to police us?” However, Coun. Dorothy Hector says other communities that have embraced the position “tend to have more confidence in their council.” She says previous attempts of council to police its own conduct have not met with much success,

and an independent investigator with no political affiliations is the best approach. “We have tried political solutions … and it doesn’t work.” Council first launched a study of the pros and cons of hiring an Integrity Commissioner in early 2013. Coun. Hector admits the timing of the Jan. 7 debate on whether to have an Integrity Commissioner as a municipal employee is “unfortunate” because it comes in the midst of a parallel investigation. Toronto lawyer George Rust-D’Eye was recently hired to probe the conduct of a councillor or city official surrounding a recent Ontario Municipal Board hearing into municipal district boundaries. City officials won’t disclose ex-

actly who the focus of the investigation is because it remains a closed-door matter. The secrecy surrounding the ongoing inquiry appears to be adding to criticism surrounding the position. Some wanted the hiring debate postponed until the outcome of Rust-D’Eye’s investigation is known, suggesting it can be used as a pilot project to give councillors a better understanding of how the process works. RustD’Eye’s report will be made public. “We should finish that investigation before starting another one,” said Coun. Lisa Osanic. An attempt to defer the hiring motion was defeated 7-6. Many are concerned that making the position permanent could spark one witch hunt after another. However, city solicitor Hal

a year” based on hourly legal fees and other expenses once the role is utilized. The Integrity Commissioner’s hiring was supported by Mayor Mark Gerretsen, plus councillors Sandy Berg, Kevin George, Dorothy Hector, Bryan Paterson, Brian Reitzel and Jeff Scott. Those voting against it were councillors Rick Downes, Bill Glover, Rob Hutchison, Jim Neill, Lisa Osanic and Liz Schell. Linscott says he’ll begin drafting a Request for Proposals in order to fill the position within the next couple of months. He says it’s very likely that a local lawyer will be retained, but will work out of their own office when called upon to investigate municipal conduct issues.

Linscott, whose ‘in camera’ advice to council triggered the current ethics probe, says elected officials need not worry. He says an Integrity Commissioner’s role is to provide education and advice to council and to make inquiries – not to act as prosecutor. “They are not hired to make a case against anybody.” Linscott added: “It’s as much for the protection of an elected official as it is for the punishment.” Council retains the final say on what penalties, if any, are handed out to its own members who breach the Code, he explained. Coun. Bill Glover fears a “Kangaroo court” in the making, and says the Commissioner’s $50,000 annual budget could easily climb to “well over $100,000

Puppy adoption for a cause Heritage News – For many families with young children, getting a puppy is an idea that comes up often. For Anita Furlan and her son Keith, this issue came up all the time – until Keith found a solution. “We saw an ad for the guide dogs in the newspaper and it looked really interesting,” explained Furlan. “We had to fill out an application and then go to an orientation session where they explained how it works. They told us that it is their puppy and we are just raising it for 18 months and then they take it back. We talked about it afterwards and thought it was a good idea.” Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind is always looking for volunteers in the Kingston Area and Eastern Ontario and luckily Furlan and her family met the proper criteria and they received a dog just in time for Christmas. While most people fall in love with the idea of having a puppy in their home, Furlan and her son quickly learned that there is far more work involved than they originally expected. “It really is a lot of work,” said Furlan. “I am basically housebound until she gets her first shots. She can only go out in the backyard. She is essentially like having another child. They are just like babies in terms of the attention they require. I get up with her two times a night.” Luckily, the puppy, Rio, also comes with a supervisor. Canadian Guide Dogs has a training supervisor that comes in every other week for the first

six months and then once a month following that to see how the dog is doing. “It’s like having a puppy with supervision and someone guiding us along through the proper process,” explained Furlan. “There are certain things that we have to teach the puppy, like how to pee or poo on demand so that she doesn’t have to go when she is in a mall or a store in the future. All guide dogs have the same commands so we need to be teaching those to her right from the start. She is also learning her name right now, which is really important. The training has been a really great experience and I think that in the future, if my son gets a dog of his own, he will know how to train it properly.” Canadian Guide Dogs also covers all of the costs associated with the puppy including food and vet appointments, and they will even take care of the dog if Furlan and her family decide to take a vacation. Overall, it has been a great experience for Furlan and her son and she sees it as her way of giving back to the community from her home. “For me this is a new experience that I wanted to try. I am newly retired and I wanted to stay home for a few years and this gives me a chance to do something useful for a blind person in that time.” Furlan also highly recommends the program to families that want a sort of trial and error period of having and taking care of a dog. Eighteen months may seem like a long time to commit, but Furlan is sure that the time will fly by, although

it may be hard for her son to let go in the end. “I think it may be hard for him but it may also be a bit of a relief. It really is hard work.” After the 18 months, Rio will then move on to more intensive guide dog training before she is ready to take on her full-time job as a guide dog, but until then, she is certainly enjoying her temporary family. To learn more about the Canadian Guide Dogs program, visit www.guidedogs.ca or phone (613) 692-7777.

Emerson’s popcorn making attempt wasn’t entirely successful Mary Cook Columnist editorial@theheritageemc.ca

Lifestyle - The corn popper hung on a nail behind the Findlay Oval. It was a big wire basket affair, blackened from use, with a long steel handle. Father said his grandfather made it, but Mother was reasonably sure she saw one just like in Scott’s hardware. It didn’t matter to us how it got to the farm in Northcote, it only mattered that we had it. Nothing pleased me more on a cold winter’s night, always on a Saturday, when Mother would tell Audrey to take down the popper and make up a batch of popcorn. Of course, that didn’t happen if it conflicted with

the same night as the Saturday night house party. Although we grew corn, it wasn’t from our crop that we got the kernels. At Briscoe’s General Store there was a big bag, back near the barrel of molasses and the coal-oil, which held bulk corn you could buy by the pound. The tin scoop sat on top of the kernels, and the paper bags were piled on the counter, and for ten cents you got enough corn to last half the winter. My sister Audrey was the one to pop the corn. That is until the night my brother Emerson said he thought it was high time he was allowed to do the job. Audrey didn’t mind giving it up, but I had serious doubts Emerson, who said he knew a faster way to pop the corn, was up to the job. It had been a long day, and Mother was in no mood to argue, so she told Emerson to get down the wire basket,

and take the bag of corn out of the cupboard. He dumped the amount needed into the wire basket, hooked it closed and moved over to the Findlay Oval. You had to have a strong arm to not only shake the basket continually over the hot stove lid, but to endure long minutes before the corn started to pop. Emerson seemed to think the faster you scraped the basket over the lid, the sooner the corn would start to pop. Audrey had already put a soup bowl of butter on the back of the stove to melt. Popcorn was not good without a big splash of melted butter. Well, we could see Emerson was getting impatient. Audrey told him shaking the basket faster had nothing to do with getting the kernels to pop, it had everything to do with the heat of the stove. That gave Emerson an idea. If the lid wasn’t hot

enough, then surely putting the basket right over the hot coals would do the trick. He slid the lid off, and put the basket directly in the hole it left, and a fraction from the burning wood. Soon the corn was popping at a great rate, and Emerson was shaking the basket like his life depended on it. Mother was watching from the end of the kitchen table, shaking her head. She was a firm believer in letting us learn from our mistakes, and there was no doubt in her mind Emerson was in for a great lesson! The popper was full to bursting, and Emerson raced over to the table to dump it into the big baking bowl. It was soon obvious that the only popcorn we could eat was sitting in the bottom of the bowl, because the bottom half of the basket was burnt to a crisp. “Didn’t feel like popcorn any-

What’s happening

way,” he said, surveying the blackened kernels staring him in the face. Father had wakened from the smell of the burning corn, shook his head, and promptly fell back to sleep. Mother told Emerson to scoop off the burnt kernels, and take them out to the chicken coop. Nothing was wasted back in the 30’s, even burnt popcorn. We divided what was edible, which wasn’t much. The next morning when I went out to gather eggs in the hen house, the burnt kernels were just where Emerson had flung them. Even the hens couldn’t eat them.

In Our Opinion

Reggae covers of popular songs and other ways of surviving a polar vortex Hollie Pratt-Campbell Reporter

@hollieprattcamp

Heritage Editorial - It’s official. The winter of 2013-2014 is the worst I’ve ever seen - and I lived in Ottawa for four years. As I write this, my phone tells me it’s minus 14 outside, feeling like minus 26 with the windchill, and that’s downright balmy compared to what we experienced last week. I don’t need to tell you what we’ve been through. The countless snowstorms in November and December. The ice storm. The thawing and flash freezing. The brutal cold snaps that seem to hit every week or so. As anyone who reads this column regularly knows, I don’t like winter at the best of times. I hate not being able to run outside. (Yes, I know there are many people who continue to do so all year long, but I just find it terribly unpleasant.) I hate how dry my skin, lips and hair get, and it seems like no amount of moisturizer, tea/ water or lip gloss will ever be enough. I hate my ugly, salt-stained boots and how I can’t wear a dress without freezing. Then last night I lived through my worst winter experience yet. Driving home from yoga, I found myself in a snow squall, unable to see anything more than a couple of feet in front of the car. The drive from the studio to home usually takes about five minutes; this one took over 20. I’m almost surprised I was able to get home at all, considering the lack of visibility. “It’s like we live in the Arctic or something,” I thought to myself as I inched my way home, white knuckles

glued to the steering wheel. And it’s true. No matter how many times the smug winter lovers of the world shake their heads and say “what do you expect, it’s Canada” whenever anyone dares to utter a complaint about the weather, it’s hard for anyone to argue that this is normal. I was curious to learn what weather experts have to say about all the unseasonably frigid temperatures and bizarre precipitation, so I did some googling. Apparently, many scientists believe that this winter can be viewed as a counterintuitive example of global warming in action. Researchers told Andrew Freedman of The Guardian’s Climate Central that North America is caught in a “polar vortex”, which is “moving around the Arctic like a slowing spinning top, eventually falling over and blowing open the door to the Arctic freezer.” I’m no scientist, but that seems like a pretty bang on description of what we’ve been experiencing to me. Still, whether it’s a polar vortex or just one of those good old fashioned Canadian winters we all claim to remember fondly from childhood, the fact remains that it’s miserable out there and we must find ways of dealing with it. My go-to solution is always a trip south. Unfortunately, this is usually not a reality. Still, there are ways of bringing a little piece of the islands to you, even in the midst of the worst winter in recent memory. Here are some tips from one who has many years of experience in this department:

1) Listen to a lot of Jimmy Buffett and reggae. Lately, I’ve been really into reggae-style covers of popular songs. Did you know UB40 and Chrissie

Hynde do a rocking reggae version of “I Got You Babe”? Definitely worth checking out. 2) Drink alcoholic beverages. I know you’ve resolved to be healthier in the new year and the thought of turning to alcohol to solve your problems seems like a bad idea, but trust me, it’s not. A little glass of rum punch in the evening will trick you into thinking you’re on vacation and, in turn, lift your spirits. 3) If alcohol is not an option, drink smoothies, preferably ones with pineapple and/or cocoanut and/or mango. If it’s a sunny day, go sit beside a window and close your eyes while you drink it. Imagine you’re on a beach. 4) Watch the movie Cocktail. Dream of kissing a young Tom Cruise under a Jamaican waterfall. 5) Buy yourself a calendar that has pictures of tropical places. (At this point they’ve got to be about 70 per cent off.) Put it someplace where you will see it all the time and enjoy a little slice of paradise all year long.

Non-smoking week… is it still necessary? The third week of January, in this case Jan. 19-25, is National Non-Smoking Week. This week has been observed for more than 30 years and is considered one of the most important events in Canada’s ongoing public health education efforts. In recent years, there have been increased efforts to change how cigarettes are viewed including stats and photos on the outside of packages detailing the health affects of smoking and, more recently, covers over the packages in places where they are sold. These efforts are great and in some cases very effective, but what else can actually be done to discourage people from smoking? For each annual National Non-Smoking Week (NNSW) there is a theme that is chosen as the focus and this year the theme is truth in advertising. The campaign consists of posters with cigarettes in a package shaped like a coffin and a slogan stating that if there was truth in advertising, a package of cigarettes would look like this. While this is true, is that really going to stop people? If the photos of blackened teeth and throat tubes haven’t stopped them, then how will a coffin shaped box? At this point, the vast majority of the population is aware of the health concerns that surround smoking. If they do smoke they see the effects on every package they open, and yet they choose to continue. Advertising has come a long way already and the days of smoking being portrayed as glamorous and trendy are long gone. There are no longer smoking sections in restaurants and multiple laws have been passed about smoking in various other locations. The NNSW claims that one of their goals is a smoke-free society in Canada, but is that really plausible? What about the farmers and manufacturers that rely on the tobacco industry for their livelihood? Realistically, there will always be individuals that choose to smoke and while it is still good to focus on this health concern, maybe we should question the importance of dedicating a week to this issue when there are so many other health concerns out there that also deserve our attention.

I hope this list assists you in making the remainder of winter bearable. If not, feel free to write to me and vent about the weather. Misery loves company, after all

Beep, beep: why do we have to be woken up because a truck is backing up a block away? Kanatabeep, Kourier-Standard Craig Bakay

The uninformed among us really have to wonder why trucks backing up have to beep in the first place. Presumably, this is some sort of ‘safety’ measure precipitated after some unthinking individual walked behind a truck backing up and got whacked. Some ‘panel’ was probably struck to deal with this impending crisis and the beep, beep, beep thing was undoubtedly part of some lengthy list of recommendations that didn’t make much practical sense. Were there really that many mishaps caused by trucks going in reverse and did the beep, beep, beep thing really eliminate them? Further research turns up that the ‘back-up beeper’ was invented by Matsusaboro Yamaguchi of the

Arnprior Chronicle-Guide Reporter editorial@theheritageemc.ca

Gazette Column — OK, what’s the worst thing about winter? Clearly, it’s the beep, beep, beep of a piece of snow removal equipment backing up. Granted, this annoyance is lessoned around mid-day but at 6 a.m., it truly is intolerable to those of us at an age where sleeping through the night without a bathroom break is out of the question and getting back to sleep for another hour after the 5:30 visit to the loo just isn’t happening.

In this day and age where cars can park themselves, there are rearview cameras and object detectors available, and for the most part, these things have become nearly as cheap as a beeper.

McKeown unfazed by NHL talk surrounding him lot of minutes for us every game and plays in every situation,” Gill said. “When you are logging those minutes, you can’t just use your legs to create chances. You need to use your mind too and he is doing that.” McKeown’s offensive production has increased this season. He recorded 27 points (seven goals and 20 assists) through 34 games, just two points shy of his total during 61 games of his rookie season in the OHL. McKeown doesn’t believe he is doing anything different this season. “I am a year older and more experienced. My knowledge of the league is better. I find when you move the puck up quickly to the forwards, the offence will come,” he said, adding that a few more points on the power play have helped pad his stats. Knowing when to join the rush is his biggest challenge, admits McKeown. He has had conversations with Coach Gill in practice, trying to get better in that area. Coach Gill said McKeown’s desire to improve in this area has paid off. “Sometimes when you’re that talented it’s hard to know when to back off. Less is more,” Gill said. “Roland, by doing less, is now doing more for the team.” Like many other Canadian hockey fans, McKeown found himself watching the World Junior Hockey Championships over the holidays.

Heritage Sports - Roland McKeown knows National Hockey League scouts are in the stands most nights, perched high above the ice observing his every shift. With the scouts’ subjective opinions beyond his control, McKeown tries to focus on playing his game. “I want to have fun and let scouts do what they are going to do,” he said. “One team might like you for one thing and another team might not like you for the same reason.” The 17-year-old defenceman (18 years old as of Jan. 20) has given the talent evaluators plenty to get excited about in his second season with the Kingston Frontenacs. In the International Scouting Service’s latest report released on Dec. 16, McKeown ranked as the 11th best prospect in this year’s NHL draft. Kingston head coach Todd Gill has been equally impressed with the development of the young rearguard. McKeown’s importance to the Frontenacs became apparent after the Christmas break when he was out of the lineup for several games. The team struggled defensively as the other blueliners were asked to play more shifts than they were accustomed to with McKeown in the lineup. Appropriately, McKeown was named the Frontenacs’ Defenceman of the Month for January, 2014. “Roland is a guy who logs a

Pulling on the Team Canada jersey at the under-20 hockey championship is definitely a long-term goal for McKeown. If that opportunity opens up one day, McKeown will be able to draw on his wealth of international experience. He won gold at the under-18 world championship in Sochi, Russia, in April 2013 followed by another victory at the 2013 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament in August. He was also an assistant captain for Team Ontario at the 2013 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge. That team did not earn a medal.

With one term under his belt, Kingston’s mayor is ready to seek re-election By Bill Hutchins Reporter

Kingston Heritage – In just over nine months Kingston voters will go to the polls to elect their new city council. And Mark Gerretsen is hoping recent history repeats itself. Although he hasn’t formally filed his nomination papers just yet, Gerretsen has confirmed that he intends to seek a second term as Mayor of Kingston. “I plan to run again for mayor. I don’t see why I wouldn’t unless something dramatic happened that would prevent me from doing that.” The first term mayor says he enjoys his role as City Hall’s top politician and hopes voters will give him another four years in office. He is also relieved that by publicly announcing his mayoralty intentions sooner he can finally quash any rumours of higher political aspirations. He says he does not want to try and succeed his father, veteran MPP John Gerretsen, who will retire when the next provincial election is called. “Being mayor of the City of Kingston is an awesome opportunity and a great job. I love doing what I do.” In a wide-ranging year end interview, Gerretsen talked about some of the current council’s accomplishments, notably; the revitalization of the Memorial Centre and Lake Ontario Park, rebuilding Artillery

Park pool, widening a busy section of John Counter Boulevard and maintaining property taxes with a 2.5 percent increase for two years in a row. “While we are maintaining this low tax rate we are also continuing to invest in roads. You can’t drive on a city street in the summer without encountering construction.” He also downplayed criticism that he presides over a fractious council that seems to have deep ideological divisions on topics ranging from whether Kingston should have a casino to its controversial stand on its own district boundaries. The latter issue was the subject of a heated council debate, Ontario Municipal Board challenge and, now, an investigation by a newly-appointed Integrity Commissioner. The mayor defends the need to investigate claims of questionable council conduct during the district boundary appeals process. “We can’t really comment on what they’re investigating, but I can definitely tell you it was our director of legal services that came to council and said ‘I have a serious concern with something I’ve become aware of.’” The independent Commissioner’s final report to council will be made public, he added. In spite of the ongoing probe, Gerretsen claims the 13-member council is not as divided as some people may think. “The relationships are not that bad,” he said, adding councillors are passionate about their districts. “It’s not all what it seems like on (televised council meetings).”

Gerretsen also played up his role as a social media junkie, noting he enjoys interacting with constituents using platforms such as Twitter and Facebook. He says social media allows people to have fast access to the mayor – something that wouldn’t have been possible just a few years ago. “Politics is different now. People are engaged at a different level.” Gerretsen has waded into his share of social media controversies, including his recent criticism of student behaviour during fall Homecoming and feuding with a lobbyist over his support of hosting a casino. But he says public criticism comes with the territory. “Do I get carried away sometimes? Absolutely. I’m not perfect. Sometimes I say stuff on social media that afterwards I regret.” He also dismissed any suggestion that his advisors should first be able screen his social media postings. “A lot of politicians do that, but I’m not a big fan of that.” He says his Tweets and Facebook messages are a means of communicating in the moment, and moving to scripted responses could lose the immediacy of his messages. “If you’re going to get engaged you have to do it at the exact minute. If you’re trying to have these orchestrated messages being delivered you run the risk of falling behind the curve.” Nominations for council and school board candidates opened Jan. 2. So far, no candidate has formally entered the race for mayor. The civic elections take place Oct. 27.

Grounded in a holistic view of sexuality, OWL equips participants with accurate, age-appropriate information in six subject areas: human development, relationships, personal skills, sexual behaviour, sexual health, and society and culture. “I took a precursor of the OWL program it my own youth and it was life-changing for me,” says Shawn Cox, program facilitator and director of religious exploration at KUF. “It really had a life-altering and a positive impact on me.” In addition to providing facts about anatomy and human development, the program assists participants in clarifying their values, building interpersonal skills, and understanding the spiritual, emotional, and social aspects of sexuality. “It’s age appropriate and when we’re dealing with the youngest kids we’re talking about personal space and we give names to things that are often mysteries,” Cox says, noting that studies have shown that kids who are able to call their body parts by their correct names are less likely to abused. “If a kid is left with secret things and they don’t know how to talk about them, they don’t talk about them. But if a kid is able to talk about their penis or their vagina, it breaks the illusion that a pedophile can have.” Younger children are also introduced to where babies come from – “we take away the cabbage leaves and the storks and everything,” notes Cox - as well as to the fact

Enchanté

Enchanting and fascinating people….and their world

Mark Bergin

Rosanne Cash: a genre-busting musician Entertainment - Rosanne Cash follows her own path. That includes her decision to live in lower Manhattan in New York City instead of Nashville. Her music fits into the indie-rock realm as well as the country world. Born in Memphis, her family moved to California when her father’s (country and folk icon Johnny Cash) career skyrocketed. She attended Vanderbilt University to study English and drama and then moved back to California to study at the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute. She recorded her first album in Munich, Germany in 1978. Columbia Records took notice and signed her to the label. Her first Columbia album, Right or Wrong, launched three hit singles. She moved from California back to the land of her birth, Tennessee in 1981. Her second album, Seven Year Ache, produced hit singles on both the Billboard Country Chart and the Billboard Pop Chart. There have been some odd and humorous twists in her career. The strangest is possibly her Grammy history. Her 1981 hit, Seven Year Ache, was expected to win a Grammy Award, but didn’t. A few years later she wrote, I Don’t Know Why You Don’t Want Me,

about not winning the Grammy. That song won the Grammy. Go figure. She moved to New York City in 1991. In 2009, Rosanne Cash released an album based on a list of songs her father gave her when she was 18. The list of 100 essential songs was intended to expand her knowledge and understanding of country music. She chose 12 of them for The List album, released in 2009. Songs on the album include: Sea of Heartbreak, sung with Bruce Springsteen; Harlan Howard’s Heartaches by the Number, which features Elvis Costello; Hedy West’s 500 Miles; Bob Dylan’s Girl from the North Country; and Merle Haggard’s Silver Wings, featuring Rufus Wainwright. In a National Public Radio interview, she explained the origin of the list. “When I was 18 years old, I went on the road with my dad after I graduated from high school. And we were riding on the tour bus one day, kind of rolling through the South, and he mentioned a song,” she says. “We started talking about songs, and he mentioned one, and I said, ‘I don’t know that one.’ And he mentioned another. I said, ‘I don’t

Grammy winning musician/songwriter Rosanne Cash, daughter of icon Johnny Cash, is a legend on her own, with multiple hit songs in different genres, including country and indie-rock. She performs at the Grand Theatre on January 31. know that one either, Dad,’ and he became very alarmed that I didn’t know what he considered my own musical genealogy. So he spent the rest of the afternoon making a list for me, and at the end of the day, he said, ‘This is your education.’ And across the top of

the page, he wrote ‘100 Essential Country Songs.’” She noted that the list might have been better called 100 Essential American Songs. “It was very comprehensive,” she says. “He covered every critical point in Southern and American music: early folk songs, protest songs, Delta blues, Southern gospel, early country music, Appalachian. Everything that fed into country music was on that list.” When touring to support her 2006 album, Black Cadillac, Cash’s life took a drastic turn. In 2007 she had to cancel all further concert dates in order to undergo brain surgery for a rare disorder, Chiari I malformation. She wrote about the experience in an article called, “Well, Actually, It Is Brain Surgery,” which appeared in the New York Times. Her new album, released this month, The River and the Thread, is her 13th studio recording since 1978. “I went back to where I was born, and these songs started arriving in me,” says Cash. “All these things happened that made me feel a deeper connection to the South than I ever had. We started finding these great stories, and the melodies that went with those experiences.” The River and the Thread looks at the geographic, emotional and

historic landscape of the American South. The album features the likes of guitar wizard Derek Trucks and living legends like John Prine and Tony Joe White. Rosanne Cash wrote all the songs with her collaborator and husband, John Leventhal, who also produced the album and plays guitar. In preparation for the album, Cash and Leventhal toured the South several times. They visited places like Natchez and the blues trail, the plantation where Howlin’ Wolf and Charley Patton worked and sang, and the home of William Faulkner. Along the way they searched for the Tallahatchie Bridge (Ode to Billy Joe). Nearby, they discovered famed musician Robert Johnson’s gravesite. “It was unbelievably haunting there, just chilling,” says Rosanne Cash. She calls the region a vortex of music and revolution. Money Road, the last song on The River and the Thread, is about the area. The thread used to weave the album is the American South, the Cash family homeland. The song The Long Way Home reflects Rosanne Cash’s life. “The sentiment is universal,” she says. “Most of us go a long way and try a lot of things before we come home to ourselves. To paraphrase Paul Theroux, ‘We go away to find the changes in ourselves. We go away to find our place in the world.’” In addition to multiple albums of her own, Rosanne Cash has appeared on albums by many other musicians, including Vince Gill, Lyle Lovett, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Marc Cohn, The Chieftains, Tom Chapin and Jeff Bridges. It’s hard to classify this Grammy Award-winning musician. She’s had 11 number one singles that fit in several genres from country and rock to roots and pop. One of her hits was a recording of Johnny Cash’s #1 hit (1961), Tennessee Flat Top Box. Her album The List won the Americana Music Award for Best Album of the Year. In addition to her music, Rosanne Cash has also written adult and children’s books and has contributed to New York Magazine, The New York Times and Rolling Stone. What kind of music will you hear during her upcoming Grand Theatre performance on Jan. 31? It’s best to say you’ll hear Americana at its finest. With lots of material from her new album to showcase, you’ll hear old and new. For tickets (only a few are still available), visit www.kingstongrand.com

The Domino invites you to spend an evening with Mr. Green is sentenced to community service and the judge orders him to visit Mr. Green once a week for six months. This is where the new play Visiting Mr. Green begins. Pauline Jodoin is the director of this comedy/drama, which opened at the Domino Theatre on Jan 9. Jodoin was immediately attracted to the play and couldn’t resist the character of Mr. Green.

“He is an amazing character,” explained Jodoin. “He is an elderly man who just wants to be left alone, but he is brought out of his shell by Ross as he keeps comHeritage Events – Mr. Green is 86 years ing to visit. I find when I read a play and old. He just lost his wife of 60 years and I can envision it in my head, then I know he isn’t sure he wants to continue on withthat it is a play that I want to direct and out her. On top of all that, he is almost that definitely happened with this play. It run down by a car while out on the street. really played out for me the whole time I The driver of the vehicle, Ross Gardener, was reading it.” This play marks Jodoin’s directing debut at the Domino, but she is no stranger to theatre. She was an active director, stage manager and producer in Cornwall before recently moving to Kingston. “My husband worked in Cornwall and the place he worked at closed down and we decided it was time to move on so we moved to Kingston,” said Jodoin. “I got involved with the Domino Theatre and then this play came up this year and I read it and thought it was definitely the one I had to direct.” The play, written by Jeff Baron, centers around Mr. Green and Ross Gardener. They are the only two characters in the play, which is sometimes challenging for actors, but Jodoin could not be more pleased with the casting and how the play has progressed throughout rehearsals. “Bill Morrow [Mr. Green] is a seasoned actor with Domino. He has been here for years and he has won Theatre Ontario Awards and Eastern Ontario Drama League Awards. Ian Cuthbertson [Ross Gardener] is from Montreal and he comes into Kingston to teach at Queen’s during the week and he auditioned for us and the actors were just such a great pair. They have wonderful chemistry and that is essential in this play. They carry the whole play and both of Bob Morrow as Mr. Green (left) and Ian Cuthbertson as Ross Gardener in Visiting Mr. them are on stage the whole time. They had Green, playing at the Domino Theatre until Jan. 25. Photo/Mandy Marciniak. a monstrous amount of lines to learn and they have both really come through.”

CARS

Work on the set for the play and rehearsals have been a bit challenging given the recent weather in the city and both were halted for an entire weekend due to the ice storm, but Jodoin is happy to be back on track. She attributes much of this to the hard work of the actors and crew and looks forward to being able to show Kingstonians this great production. “It is a nice evening of entertainment and the Domino is a lovely theatre to come to,” added Jodoin. “Mr. Green and Ross are just so lovable and I think people will really enjoy them as characters. I think it is a nice diversion for a winter evening, if people want to come out and just be swept away for a couple of hours. It lets people look at someone else’s life and hopefully realize that there are people out there who are different from us who may have it a bit harder but if they can work through it so can we.” Visiting Mr. Green opened in the Davies Auditorium at the Domino Theatre on Jan. 9 and plays Thursday through Saturday until Jan. 25. Tickets are $20 each and are available through the Grand Theatre box office 613.530.2050 or at the Domino ticket office an hour before the 8 p.m. show.

Get the best winter travel deals There are thousands of people who anxiously anticipate the arrival of winter. Armed with gloves and boots, these winter enthusiasts can’t wait to frolic in the drifts of snow. Still, there are many others who would much prefer sipping tropical drinks on sunkissed beaches to freezing weather and down-filled coats. Once the temperature begins to dip, fans of warmer weather may begin the anxious dance that is trying to find a winter travel excursion. While there are some deals to be had, the clever traveler is one who begins the process as early as possible. According to Clem Bason, president of Hotwire Group, the winter season

is ripe with travel deals. He offers that the first few weeks of December are the key times to get the cheapest fares all year long. This is not the only secret to winter travel. Follow these other suggestions for saving on your next getaway. * Book early. If you know that each year you start to get antsy around the middle of winter, then plan annual vacations around this time. Make sure you request the time off from work and buy your tickets several months before. * Know peak travel dates. There are certain times during the winter when you probably will pay a premium for travel. The holiday season tends to

be the most expensive time to travel during the winter. Be flexible with travel dates, and you could see your rate drop considerably if you travel just a day or two later. * Sign up for a hotel reward program. Chain hotels frequently offer member incentives. By signing up for a rewards program, you can accrue travel points that can be used toward hotel stays and other benefits. Being loyal to a particular hotel brand can help you collect points faster. Plus, some chains offer nonadvertised deals specifically to their reward members. * Think about booking a package deal. Many resort properties partner with car rental companies and airlines

to put together packages. Packages may be less expensive overall than booking each individual element separately. * Look into alternative accommodations. When planning a vacation, many travelers turn to hotels for their accommodations. However there are other avenues for affordable rooms. Web sites like Vacation Rental By Owner (www.vrbo.com) enable individuals with rental homes, condominiums or timeshares to sublet their properties to deal seekers. You may be able to find an affordable place at a fraction of the cost of comparable hotels in the area. * Consider a timeshare. If you

travel at the same time each year and want a designated place to stay without hassle, timeshares could be the ideal situation. A timeshare is typically an apartment in a resort property that is jointly owned by people who use it at different times. Sometimes it is possible to trade timeshares among others so that you can vary or upgrade where you stay. * Be flexible. Some of the best deals to be had come when you can depart at a moment’s notice. Wintertime is a season ripe with travel opportunities. Whether you’re escaping the cold or flying directly to a ski resort, employ some strategies for getting the best prices possible.

New facilities rental fees not a hit with everyone Gazette News — South Frontenac’s new policies regarding standardized rental fees are going through some growing pains, Council heard at its regular meeting last week in Sydenham. “I’m getting some rumblings about facility rental fees,” said Coun. Ron Vandewal. “There are some pretty disgruntled card players out there.” Vandewal said some of the complaints from groups were that they weren’t consulted on the new fees but he responded that they were represented in the discussions by their various recreation committees. “There are some groups who say they have letters that they would never have to pay,” Vandewal said. “We told them to bring the letters in.” CAO/Clerk Wayne Orr acknowledged that there had been a few hiccups in implementing the new policies and fees, but they were trying to work with the various groups on a case-bycase basis. “We have been making some adjustments as some things came up,” Orr said. “In some cases, groups simply haven’t had enough time to raise the funds.” •••

When a fire Jan. 6 forced the evacuation of the residents of McMullen Manor in Verona, the neighbouring Verona Free Methodist Church was quick to step up to the plate, Coun. John McDougall told Council at its regular meeting last week in Sydenham. “I’m not sure what actually caused the fire but I understand it was the Hydro crew working on a line that touched it off,” McDougall said. “But the point is that within minutes of the evacuation, the Free Methodist Church had its doors open and kept everybody warm until they were allowed back around 4 p.m. “They even gave everybody a ham dinner.” ••• Concerns that the Frontenac Arena wouldn’t be open for Family Day have been set to rest, Dep. Mayor and arena board member Ron Vandewal told Council. “The arena manager had planned to be closed Family Day, citing that he’d have to pay staff as his reason,” Vandewal said. “So we got together to see if there was money in the rec budget to pay for a staff member and there was. “Then we had to find a staff member who was willing to work that day and we found one.”

Sir John, Eh? The Road Show kicks off new tour in Kingston mmarciniak@theheritageemc.ca

Heritage News – Birthdays are always a good time, especially when it is your 199th birthday. Last week, Kingston celebrated the birth of Sir John A. Macdonald in various ways throughout the city, including multiple showings of Sir John, Eh? The Road Show, a newly modified version of the original show that played at the Grand Theatre last year. A group of five actors with the SALON Acting Company modified their popular historical show and made it kid-friendly. The group then performed throughout last week at Sir John A. Macdonald Public School. “It worked out to be a really nice partnership for this week,� said Mary Rita Holland, Project Manager for the Sir John A. Macdonald Bicentennial Commission. “The show is great for all ages and so far they have performed it for students from junior kindergarten right up to Grade 8. They have all loved it and a lot of them actually came back to see it again.� The 50-minute show focuses on pre-confederation in Canada and the influence Macdonald had on that period of Canadian history. While the show is comedic and musical and whimsical, it still does a great job of accurately teaching the history and important events to children. “The response has been very, very good,� said Holland, “For the young students, confederation is kind of a tricky topic to explain, but

the actors do a great job. They have been at this for a while and they are very skilled at performing for different age groups. They worked hard to create some activity guides in advance for the teachers to give to students to help them understand the history. They also created some videos to show to students to help them better understand. There is also a lot of audience participation involved in the production, which students always love.� The shows were really a practice run for the acting group, which is now taking the show on the road next week. The group is heading east to perform the musical show at 16 different schools and hopefully more after they return. “The plan is to go out west as well,� explained Holland, “We’ve partnered with VIA Rail for some travel already. The next trip will be to go out west and as they travel they will perform vignettes from the show on the train and then hopefully in schools along the way too. Hopefully we can organize a full trip, but that really depends on interest and funding at this point.� For now, the group is just excited to have the opportunity to perform for kids and show them a bit of history. The Bicentennial Commission is working hard to bring the history of Sir John A. Macdonald to all Canadians, but communicating with youth is really the priority. “We are putting together an online library. It will be a resource for teachers, students, academics and the general public. We have mate-

rial that is primary source archival material and we are putting it all into digital format. That is a really big project and it is something that we’d like to be able to leave behind for students and future generations,�

said Holland. “Our main mandate is to engage the youth in these activities and the theatrical shows have been really effective thus far so we’d like to continue finding ways to teach them in

this way whenever possible.� For more information on Sir John, Eh? The Road Show or any of the other upcoming events celebrating the life of Sir John A. Macdonald visit www.sirjohna2015.ca.

Gala will raise money for sustainability By Kelly Reid Reporter

Heritage Events – “Sustainability isn’t about deprivation,� says Rena Upitis, executive director of Wintergreen Studios. The organization is devoted to promoting sustainable living, and holds a variety of workshops and retreats in its off-grid straw house located in Yarker. “All of the workshops have something to do with sustainability but also with beauty and art and living well.� Upitis explains further. Some of what they’ve done in the past includes writing retreats with local authors, lessons on mosaic and linen work, and readings from the likes of Lawrence Hill and Lorna Crozier. Wintergreen’s latest work, though, has been with a younger audience: they’ve been running a program entitled “Simple Abundance,� which teaches grade-school children the benefits of local food, renewable energy, and natural building.

Rena Upitis is getting ready for Red Boot Benefit.

The program was funded for the last year by an Ontario Trillium Fund grant. The program, which began sessions in September, has already worked with a number of local schools. “We’ve reached hundreds and hundreds of people,� Upitis says proudly. The studio also holds workshops for students in the Faculty of Education, so that they can introduce sustainability in their practicums and future classrooms. With the Trillium grant coming to an end at the end of March, though, Wintergreen is going to be doing its own fundraising to continue the program. Their Red Boot Benefit on Feb. 1 will be the major fundraising event, preceded by several weeks of workshops. Upitis jokes that there is no significance to the name other than that “people find it easy to remember names like that,� she laughs. “And it felt like a really jolly thing to do in the middle of the winter.� Any attendees in red boots qualify for a door prize. The event is being held in Memorial Hall, one of City Hall’s grand old rooms. The evening will have entertainment and music, readings, a variety of draws and a silent auction. Upitis looks most forward to the auction. “We’ve had so many great donations that where we will get the most benefit for the benefit, if you’ll excuse the pun, is from the silent auction.� Items vary widely, and include everything from tea for two at David’s Tea to a three-night stay in New York City. Wintergreen is also auctioning off four celebrity luncheons: one-on-one dining experiences with Peter Milliken, Helen Humphreys, Lawrence Scanlan and Steven Heighton. The venues are pillars of the Kingston food scene: Casa, Le Chien Noir, The River Mill and Dianne’s Fish bar. “We’d love to raise $20,000,� says Upitis of Wintergreen’s goals. “It all seems so impossible, but we’re excited about the possibility of what we can do.� Tickets to the Red Boot Benefit are $75 and available online at www.wintergreenstudios.com or in person at Tara Natural Foods, Novel Idea, and Sustainable Kingston.

UP IN MY GRILL

A GUIDE TO CULINARY HAPPENINGS AND SEASONAL FOOD

Kate Kristiansen

Let Us Eat: Food as a foundation for change groups. “You qualify as food insecure if you fit the following attributes,” said Bedore. “By not having enough food to eat because of lack of money; worrying that there won’t be enough to eat because of lack of money; or identified as not eating the quality or variety of foods that you would like because of the lack of money.” The argument is that there is enough food available in the world; the problem is distribution and excess in some areas. It’s a complex topic–poverty is very real for many, not only overseas, but also in our community today. We need to provide community food shelters and be more innovative in our approach through education about food, cooking and preservation. Individuals should have access to food in an inclusive and sustainable way. “It’s a tricky time of the year for those who are food insecure,” said Bedore. “You have the extra strain of gift buying and access problems with the weather. Just navigating your way to the grocery store can be an issue in bad weather with no car, icy roads and juggling bags. You also have the added judgment of the general population. There is negativity around charity and accepting donations, sometimes self-denial about how much things are affected by gift giving.” The economy shows itself to be volatile and that people’s economic security

should not be taken for granted. A recent Toronto Star article described the reality of a middle class man who was laid off from his job of thirty years and is now part of the working poor. He had to sell his house and take a job much below his level of experience just to survive. He never imagined this loss. He had envisioned a comfortable retirement, with savings and his home

paid for. Job insecurity has left him feeling lost and judged in his new environment. Why is it that if you receive aid or assistance that our community stereotypes and subjects one to judgments? The obvious answer is that most feel they pay taxes and are contributing to the economic fabric of the community. “Older members of the community recall a time in Canada when we had the big universal welfare programs,” R0012508497

Heritage Lifestyle – “Like slavery and apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is people who have made poverty and tolerated poverty, and it is people who will overcome it.” - Nelson Mandela Nelson Mandela is dead. Recently, we also marked the anniversary of the death of John Lennon, another leader of peace and global unity. Both of their messages are consistent that we as people can collectively make a difference. Just as powerful as eradicating discrimination, access to good food can assist in and be a foundation of change. Food connects. Over the holidays, we share food as we celebrate with family and friends. For some, food is in excess, while others are visiting emergency food shelters. Every day is a good day to consider initiatives that foster a more inclusive and sustainable food system. “Food security is a complex sustainable development issue,” states the World Heath Organization website. “Access to good food is linked to health through fighting malnutrition, but also to sustainable economic development, environment, and trade.” Dr. Melanie Bedore is an adjunct professor with the Queens University Department of Geography. She holds a doctorate in human geography and is a specialist in urban food systems and food access. Her doctoral work included studies on food insecurity locally and nationally through interviews and focus

said Bedore. “They’ve gone through decades of public investment in trying to get a handle on poverty that they often feel disenfranchised. However, now more that ever we need to get poverty under control.” Why should I pay for someone else’s poor spending habits? Poverty is so much more than that and someday it could be you. Today, the working poor in our community includes students, families and even seniors trying to make ends meet. “Some individuals go without as a choice,” said Bedore. “They eat a more austere diet as a value-based decision, while others do not have a choice and often are making a trade-off based on a lack of choice but as a survival skill.” Food banks are necessary to a community. They assist individuals during the last couple of days of the month when finances can be stretched. Today food banks are such established institutions in communities that it’s hard to imagine not having one. They do so much good work behind the scenes besides providing food. “The danger is that it can give a community a false sense that poverty is under control and being managed,” said Bedore. “It lulls us into complacency. We forget that poverty is a political issue. Social justice needs to provide a more fair society.” Kingston is a wonderful city, but the reality is that we live in one of the

most demographically polarized cities in terms of class and the difference between the poor and the wealthy. Headway is being made to assist homelessness. Food insecurity is more generalized. It includes individuals who may not be homeless but are trying to survive and manage on very little money. “It takes the stop gap measures like emergency food programs [such as school lunch program] and the distribution of food,” said Bedore. “ These are channels to catch people when they have an immediate need. They should exist and they are a fabric of communal charity and help for each other. “Social justice also demands really tough shifts in the way we think about poverty. It means questioning stereotypes with which we are so comfortable. You can’t have social justice if you keep blaming people and holding people responsible for their own lot in life. We as a community need to be willing to politicize the issues.” Adequate food should be available to everyone. This year, let’s begin by rethinking our stereotypes. Do not tolerate poverty because, as Mandela said, it is the people who can overcome it.

It’s Really Tough Work in the Cold By Margaret Knott Correspondent

Heritage News- Coming home on the Wolfe Island Ferry recently from a necessary visit to the city on what was one of winter’s coldest days thus far, I was struck by the fatigue I saw registered in the faces of MTO’s ferry staff members. You know them, the many men, who board us safely on and off the ferry, Lori, our lone female, the captains and mates in the ferry’s upper deck who steer the ship and those many who work below who are crucial to ferry’s safe operation, every hour in all kinds of weather, spring and summer, fall and winter and those on shore who see to its repair. We take their tasks for granted I suppose because …… Well I don’t really know why. Perhaps it is because they are always there. Its there job. Why wouldn’t they do it well. The fact that they do was written all over their faces as they chopped ice, sanded and salted the deck guided vehicles into place and struggled with the ramp. If we were cold you can imagine how cold

they were. So to them, a vote of thanks for all they do to keep the ferry running and on schedule in spite of the weather. Thanks! Of Interest to Wolfe Islanders: There was a community meeting called at the request of WI resident Kathy Horton to talk about community housing with specific reference to co-op type housing summed up as “people working together to decide what they want to create as housing.” As a member of a ‘CO’ Housing committee , not yet incorporated, she met with Mayor Doyle and Councillor Grant in September , also with Frontenac County’s Joe Gallivan and Peter Young to talk about housing possibilities. She also met with WI property owner John Weatheral who she said was interested in the ‘CO’ Housing concept. Invited to the present gathering were John McDougall, a South Frontenac and Frontenac County councillor. Councillor McDougall represents Frontenac County at the City of Kingston’s Housing and Homelessness Committee. ( Kingston provides this service

to the County in the same way the County provides Ambulance Service for Kingston. ) Also present , Mayor Denis Doyle, Councillor Wayne Grant, Frontenac Islands Interim CAO Gord Burns, island residents Betty Doyle, Clara Lovatt , Walter Knott and Frontenac County’s Joe Gallivan and Peter Young. Gallivan recently completed the Frontenac County Official Plan. Young is presently involved with a CIP (Community Improvement Plan) for Wolfe Island. The discussion moved through a series of concepts, ownership, rental, condominium, side by side units with common area, possibly municipal involvement etc. Mayor Doyle spoke of prefab design and fabrication with some flexibility. Councillor Doyle noted that Wolfe Island has been this route before. “Our community was looking for a seniors residence ,” he said. Councillor McDougall identified a similar need in South Frontenac. In either case nothing developed. The meeting shifted to a consider-

ation of senior rental housing in Marysville. Councillor McDougall reminded the group that Kingston is our service provider for social housing. “We should not forget that,” he said. . “Twenty percent of the area population is from Frontenac County... we must keep the city involved in what we do.” What was cocleded, after much discussion, was that Wolfe Island needs what it said it needed a few years ago. Affordable rental units for seniors in the village. A committee will move forward to look at the options, possible partners, funding, support from the city/ county, all directed towards the development of a business plan. No guarantees at this point and no immediate expectations…. Around Town: It’s official. Wolfe Island is registered for Kraft Hockeyville 2014. Submit a short story about Island’s “Community Spirit and Passion for Hockey” (up to 4,000 characters including spaces in full) via the Website no later than February 9, 2014 at 11:59:59 p.m. ET (Judged 1/3 each Originality, Community Spirit, Passion

for Hockey) You may attach photos. http://krafthockeyville.cbc.ca/ * And speaking about the wonderful rink on Wolfe Island, in spite of the cold it was in full use all day long last Sunday when the Bath Road Rangers Association of the Church Athletic League held their 2nd annual Hockey Classic . It went on all afternoon and into the evening. , game after game.* And Further info about the rink Check out Wolfe Island Community Centre on Facebook. Up comes quite a nice site with lots of information and some wonderful pictures. * Bad time at the WIPP when the furnace died during the very cold weather. * It is that time of year. Islanders are wondering when or if the ferry will be moving to the winter dock now that there is so much ice for the ferry to deal with and water levels are down. If it is going to happen it is just a matter of time. The question is are we ready? * Glad to hear that the docks at Amherst Island will be rebuilt to accommodate the Frontenac II’s ”roll on-roll off” features. It has been a back up ferry for Wolfe Island, so we know it well.

Canadian poet to explore Governor General Award-winning book of poetry with Kingston WritersFest By Hollie Pratt-Campbell hpratt-campbell@perfprint.ca

R0012473128

Heritage Events - For Canadian authors, winning the Governor General’s Award is considered one of our country’s highest literary achievements. In 2013, poet Katherena Vermette was bestowed this honour for her first poetry collection, North End Love Songs, a work that was inspired by the disappearance of her brother, Donovan, in 1991, as well as her experience growing up as a child and young Métis woman in a poor Winnipeg

neighbourhood. “It felt pretty good - I still feel like it’s just setting in,” she says of winning the award. “I’m glad it was this book and this topic because this is something that’s really important to me - not only is it the story of my brother but it also talks a lot about growing up in the inner city and the struggle and the strength of the people that live there.” Vermette will be in Kingston Feb. 2 for the Kingston WritersFest off-season event An Afternoon with the Governor Generals, at which she will read from North End Love Songs. She notes that she is excited to share these poems that she has worked so hard on for so long with a Kingston audience. “I’d written the poems over many years…and they didn’t really take shape for a number of years, they were just sort of poems. Then eventually in the last couple of years they started to create a pattern and create an overall story.” Vermette says that her brother’s disappearance and death, which occurred when she was 14 and he 18, had a significant impact on the person she became as an adult. In particular, witnessing the apathetic manner in which the police responded to Donovan’s disappearance was key to shaping her worldview. “There was a lot of apathy surrounding his disappearance. It was dismissed because he was indigenous and because we lived in a poor neighbourhood. I think it’s one of those incidents that shape you no matter what but it also really shaped my politics and shaped what I intended to do with my life.

“It was one of those stories I always wanted to articulate and it took me years to do so. I really wanted to articulate it through poetry because poetry is my first love and it’s a beautiful way to tell a story.” Vermette remarks that it was important to her to make sure each poem was just right. While most are relatively short, she explains that this doesn’t mean she spent any less time on them. “Poets are crazy editors because we obsess over those tiny little words and tiny little commas if we use them, and other little things that are seem meaningless but in a poem if it’s wrong it really stands out.” She notes that when it comes to writing poetry, she is fond of her friend Chandra Mayor’s wood carving analogy. “You get a beautiful piece of wood and you chisel it all the way down, and you polish and you chisel and you keep going until you have something that you saw in the original block of wood that’s very different than what it looked like originally.” She adds that “my goal for my poetry is not only to talk about the subjects that I choose to talk about but also to have good rhythmic poetry. To be technically as good as I can as well as everything else.” Vermette is looking forward to coming to connecting with local audiences on Feb. 2. “I hope we just have a good night,” she says. “It’s a poetry reading. Those are always fabulous and I’m looking forward to [seeing Kingston for the first time].” An Afternoon with the Governor Generals will also feature non-fiction nominee

Carolyn Abraham and fiction nominee Kenneth Bonert. All authors will take the stage in a series of readings and conversations; the event will be moderated by Globe and Mail Books editor Jared

Bland. Tickets are on sale now through the Grand Theatre box office. For more information, please visit www.kingstonwritersfest.ca.

Places to explore and things to experience

Mark Bergin

Live arts: from entertainment to catharsis Heritage Lifestyle – Live artistic and cultural performances have the potential to range from inspiring to life-changing. There’s nothing like attending a live professional show, whether it’s music, dance, theater, spoken word, an art gallery or performance art. In theatre, all forms of dramatic productions are fascinating, but nothing tops a professional show. While praising the professional arts world, this isn’t meant to be a slight against community theatre or dance, which go by many names, depending on the politically correct atmosphere of a region. Non-professional theatre can be quite rewarding. It’s also known as recreational or amateur theatre. That doesn’t mean it’s not worthwhile; it means performers aren’t paid, or at least not paid according to professional standards. It also means they aren’t devoting their soul and their very way of making a living to their craft. There’s also school theatre, which can range from cute to stunningly professional. Productions are held at every level, from elementary and high school to college and university. When you see an exceptionally competent show, you’ll have a difficult time differentiating it from a professional performance. Juilliard school in New York City offers free or reasonably priced shows that feature a high level of skill. Locally, Regiopolis-Notre Dame consistently produces shows at a quality far above average and that definitely go beyond the amateur level. There are many local community theatre companies. I’m hesitant to name one local show or company as all work hard and put endless hours into the fine shows they produce. At the professional level, there is only one theatre company in town: Theatre Kingston. Their most recent production of Vigil was as good as anything you could see off-Broadway in New York. I’ve written about this in the past, but the difference between Broadway and off-Broadway productions isn’t related to quality or location on the street called Broadway; it depends on theatre size. Five hundred seats or more, it’s Broadway. Four hundred and ninety-nine or less, it’s offBroadway. In Eastern Ontario we are in the unique position of having easy access to New York and its endless cultural offerings. You’ll rarely see a bad show at the Broadway level of production. But they aren’t usually risk-takers. They have to sell a lot of seats so they try to host popular crowd pleasers. You’ll see greater experimentation in the off-Broadway and smaller Broadway houses. You’ll also get a very intimate feel for the performance that you won’t find in a 1,500 or 2,000 seat theatre. This intimacy is especially true of Theatre Kingston’s productions. What’s so important about theatre? It’s modern storytelling at its finest. You might be presented with a perspective that no one listens to or is aware of in day-to-day life, but when presented in the form of a story, it knocks you off your feet. Kinky Boots comes to mind. It’s all

about acceptance on many levels, including father and son differences, established groups and newcomers, straight and gay. On the stage is where an actor proves his or her mettle. It’s much easier to get it right on a movie set

ing in two Broadway plays together. Stewart longed to return to the stage, finding filmmaking far less rewarding than live work. In the arts, we explore our individual and collective souls. At the least, you’ll be entertained.

get that kind of guaranteed success in many places these days. I’ve left Broadway shows out of breath from awe or wiping my eyes from tears of laughter or sadness. Kinky Boots, Race, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, and

Renée Lemieux performs in Kay Kenney’s choreographed work with the Kingston School of Dance last June. Photos/Mark Bergin where you have the opportunity for multiple takes. In live theatre, there are no second takes. That’s why you’ll see the finest actors returning to the stage time and again. It’s where they thrive. Star Trek and Lord of the Rings actors Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen are currently perform-

At best, you’ll experience catharsis on some level. You’re almost guaranteed a moving experience. Out of about 50 Broadway and off-Broadway shows I’ve seen over the past few years, there were only two that were of questionable value. That’s 96 per cent satisfaction. You don’t

Grace each provided emotional catharsis. Watching Vanessa Redgrave and James Earl Jones age over two hours in Driving Miss Daisy was a breathtaking experience. Last week, I was surrounded by people sniffling during Celia Keenan-Bolger’s heartwrenching performance as the physi-

cally and emotionally “crippled” girl in The Glass Menagerie. After Theatre Kingston’s productions of Blue/ Orange and Vigil last year, all the way home in the car a discussion brewed on social issues and life’s meaning. And the Thousand Islands Playhouse production of Boeing Boeing provided side-splitting laughter as well as some discussion about morality. I’ve spent hours talking with a friend about a play that captured our imaginations in quite different ways. I’ve chatted over a glass of wine about dance performances that left me in awe. As for great music–I don’t care if it’s Edvard Grieg, Eminem, Martina McBride or Florence and the Machine–you’ll feel electric rushes of energy moving through your body. In the world of dance, a professional (or pre-professional school) dance performance can bring you to tears when the dancer puts it all out there in front of you on stage. Kay Kenney and Lauren Runions each choreographed a production for the Kingston School of Dance annual performance at the Grand Theatre last year. Their pieces immediately come to mind when I think of the emotionally cathartic potential of dance. When a person tells me they don’t like live theatre/dance/whatever, I’m pretty sure they haven’t seen a professional show at the highest level. That would be like judging a professional sport after only ever seeing bantam or peewee games, which are great if your or a friend’s kid/relative is playing but it’s not sport at the highest level. I’m stunned at even how many self-proclaimed critics have only seen a few New York- or London-produced shows. It’s like they’ve been watching fireworks in the local park versus those that Disney World sets off. I’d encourage you to trek to one of the world’s cultural Meccas. Visit Broadway in New York, the West End in London, or, if you want to stay on home turf, Stratford or the Shaw Festival in Ontario. Get out of your chair. Go see a live performance in theatre, dance, spoken word or music. Keep your eyes on Theatre Kingston. They don’t produce many shows in a year, but what they produce is magnificent. Their next production (Jan. 29 – Feb. 15) is Red, winner of six Tony Awards and three Drama Desk Awards. I’ll talk with director Charlotte Gowdy in next week’s Enchanté column. Attend one of the Kingston School of Dance annual senior performances in late spring. You’ll experience the highest level of dance expression in the region. Attend a performance by one of the professional dance companies coming to the Grand Theatre. Visit the Agnes Etherington Art Centre. Listen to Kingston Chamber Choirs, Cantabile Choirs or the Kingston Symphony. On Jan. 18, you can relive the musical moments from your favorite movies, when the Kingston Symphony hosts a tribute to Hollywood in a performance called Lights, Camera....Music. Live arts performances are the antithesis of couch-potato mentality. It’s a new year. Get out there and experience culture.
