Battersea Resident wins gold medal from Royal Conservatory By Mandy Marciniak

mmarciniak@theheritageemc.ca

Gazette News – Jodie Compeau has been playing piano since she was four years old, and teaching piano since the age of 20. Currently, Compeau teaches 49 different students, the most she has ever had, and for good reason. Compeau was recently honoured with a gold medal from the Royal Conservatory of Music. “I am working towards my Teaching diploma through the Association of the Royal Conservatory of teaching (ARCT) and I just finished the first component,” explained Compeau. “There are three portions of the exam – you need to have a minimum of a Grade 9 in piano and all of the theory that goes with it. You also have to complete a written exam and you have to perform a Viva Voce exam. I did all of that last January and I received the highest mark in Ontario and Quebec.” A ceremony is held in Toronto every

year for the highest achievers in each region and every honouree is rewarded with a medal. Compeau attended this ceremony on Jan. 12 and claims that she wasn’t nervous during the exam or ceremony. “It felt really great and it was a lot of years of working hard to get there. I wasn’t nervous really. All of the years that I have performed prepared me for it and I don’t really get nervous anymore. Luckily, I have had many years of teaching experience already and that really helped me with doing well on the exam.” While it is not mandatory for Compeau to have the ARCT diploma to teach, more and more parents look for it when choosing a music teacher for their children. The diploma also allows Compeau to become part of the Ontario Registered Music Teachers Association (ORMTA), another accreditation that is helpful for her teaching and gaining pupils. Teaching is really the most important part for Compeau at this point. She

is still learning herself, but she loves teaching kids and seeing the passion in them for piano and music. “I love starting the kids. I love taking a beginner and developing them through the years and levels, I love watching them grow and improve,” explained Compeau, who doesn’t shy away from taking on very young students. “I am currently teaching my niece who is four years old and that is my youngest student at the moment. I usually don’t take on students that young, but I did with her. We have very short lessons, usually only 10 minutes before I lose her attention. My youngest clients are usually five or six and once they are in school full-time.” Compeau is also part of a new Royal Conservatory online teaching program called iSCORE. The program allows Compeau to communicate with older students online. It also helps them practice on their own and eventually teach themselves. “It helps develop the kids into selfregulated learners and that is one of the

things that I love about teaching too,” added Compeau. “They can analyze their own performance and analyze their own playing and it really helps them focus on what they need to work on. There is still a need for the teacher to give them the strategies to learn, but when they can become more independent with their playing at home, they advance much faster.” So what’s next for Compeau? More exams. Her gold medal achievement is only the first step in her quest for an ARCT diploma. She will work with her own teacher, Martha Hill Duncan, and practice for the next level. Meanwhile, she will keep up her busy regimen of teaching and encouraging more and more kids to get involved with piano. “Piano lessons teach kids discipline and time management. They get out of it what they put in. They need to practice and they learn quickly that they will not advance if they don’t make time to practice and that applies to many other things in life too.”

Remembering 'Tim OShea' - Long time Reeve of Wolfe Island the Ministry of Transportation to convince the Province of Ontario to build the Wolfe Islander III. He encouraged islanders to get off the ice and onto the ferry. The dump property was purchased and the first municipal dump was opened. The volunteer fire department was formed, the first fire truck was purchased and the first fire hall was built. The first township roads garage was built. The Simcoe Island Ferry was built and a ferry service to Simcoe Island was inaugurated. The Community Hall was purchased. The Library was built. He was responsible for establishing a medical clinic and the first volunteer ambulance service on Wolfe Island along with the help and support of Dr. George Merry. Mr. O’Shea was well respected at the Federal and Provincial Government levels,” she concluded. Mayor Doyle commented that the late Reeve O’Shea was very important to the community.” Every election year when I was living away from Wolfe Island, my mother would call me to come home and Vote for TIM,” he said. CAO Gordon Burns In his re-

port to council regarding the naming of Streets and Buildings after distinguished residents noted such a policy had advantages as a means of recognition of persons, and disadvantages such as precedent setting, determining eligibility, getting agreement, limited number of facilities etc. but “the request to honour former Reeve Tim O’Shea should be considered” the report said, and naming the WI library after him was suggested. Council agreed with the suggestion and working with the CAO, the family will assist with the late Reeve O’Shea’s history including pictures for a plaque to be placed at the island’s library soon to be identified and dedicated as “The Timothy O’Shea Memorial Library.” A formal event will take place at a later date. .

We Captured the Moment and Now you can Keep the Memory!

Around Town:* A meeting has been initiated to talk about gas & diesel on Wolfe Island since the closure of Danny’s gas pumps (not the garage)..* Para medicine services at the WI Community Medical Clinic have been a success and the possibility of increasing those services is being studied.. * Noted the bubble system is not operating… * Simcoe ferry out of service of course. * Apologies to Councillor Nossal, her first name is Natalie, (not Kim) as stated last week. * Watch out for frost bite during this very cold weather. * Check out Medical Clinic dates,,,at wolfeisland.com *Have you written your letter to Kraft Hockeyville 2014 Bring it Home.?.?

EMC News - Family members of the late Timothy O’Shea (1996) returned to the Township of Frontenac Islands January council meeting, to hear the outcome of a request that the long time (33 years) Reeve of Wolfe Island be honoured in some way by the township. Present was Mr. O’Shea’s daughter, Sharon Hogan, his grandson Dan Hogan, and Dan’s wife Danielle. It was Danielle who in November came forward to present the original request to council that the township “recognize Timothy O’Shea’s life long contributions and dedication to the Wolfe Island community by publically recognizing his many years of service and accomplishments.” She suggested a way to do that might be to dedicate a portion of Highway 95 , that part in front of the O’Shea home near Sacred Heart the Church they attended, the library erected during his time in office, or perhaps another location or facility like the Community Centre. At the time, Danielle presented a

strong case for council to recognize “Timothy O’Shea.” T he central theme of her comments certainly confirmed the idea that O’Shea (born July 5, 1919) was a family man, a loving husband of 51 years to his wife Marion (Greenwood), loving father to his children Sandra, Sharon and Terry, their spouses Leo, Owen and Barbara and his grandchildren,as well as an exceptional politician and Reeve of Wolfe Island for 33 uninterrupted years, and Frontenac Warden in 1967. She acknowledged that she had not met Reeve O’Shea personally but had come to know him through the pictures, stories and traditions she had seen and heard. “He was a man of impeccable character, great integrity and family values. A loyal, dependable man, Timmy O’Shea was the first one to step up to help someone in need- and if he couldn’t do it alone he would gather a group of fellow islanders and they would do it together. Mr. O’Shea was instrumental in numerous community projects,” she continued. “ Instrumental in convincing the province to take over the Wolfe Island Ferry and worked with

(NC)-Visions of navigating through snow, sleet and black ice are enough to convince most drivers to hibernate during the winter. But for those willing to brave the icy roads, here are some safe driving tips and puts an end to a number of dangerous winter driving myths. Myth # 1 There is no difference between all-season tires and winter tires False - There are many different types of tires available for all kinds of climates and conditions. When preparing for a change of season, consult the experts and have them recommend the most appropriate tires for your vehicle. Myth #2 In winter, accidents usually happen during storms. False - During a storm, drivers tend to drive a lot more carefully, but when the weather is good, people take more risks. Myth # 3 Thanks to my anti-lock brakes, I can brake without

danger, which isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the case with traditional brakes. False - The nature of anti-lock brakes means that stopping distances may be longer than with traditional brakes. Myth # 4 Nothing beats a nice wide tire for driving in snow. False - Wide tires tend to float on top of the snow, unlike narrow tires, which provide a better grip.

South Frontenac agrees to assume full responsibility for Petworth Bridge By Craig Bakay Reporter

Gazette News â&#x20AC;&#x201D; When a truck struck the Petworth Bridge east of Harrowsmith last year, it set off a chain of events that led to an interesting situation. Although the bridge is totally in South Frontenac Township, it was jointly owned by the Township and Lennox & Addington County. After the accident, the Township and L & A jointly completed repairs. At the regular South Frontenac meeting last week in Sydenham, Council heard that L & A wants to divest itself of that ownership. At its Nov. 27 meeting, L & A Council passed a resolution stating, in part: â&#x20AC;&#x153;That County staff submit correspondence to the Township of South Frontenac requesting the Township to assume complete responsibility for the future maintenance and repairs of the Petworth Bridge and further, that the Township of South Frontenac be requested to release and indemnify the County from any liability in connection with the bridge.â&#x20AC;? South Frontenac Council seemed resigned to the fact theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to pony up for the bridge and even had some fun with the unique situation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to know who negotiated that deal in the first place,â&#x20AC;? said Mayor Gary Davison, half-jokingly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How we talked them into responsibility for our bridge, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t accept their proposal, what would happen?â&#x20AC;? asked Coun. Cam Naish. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We might get a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;realâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lawyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s letter,â&#x20AC;?

joked Dep. Mayor Ron Vandewal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And a bill for about two grand,â&#x20AC;? said Davison. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You know, most of the year, you wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get your feet wet at that crossing but sometimes in the spring, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s over your head. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That creek drains the whole water system from the bog from Verona on down.â&#x20AC;? Council then discussed the history of the bridge, including an accident in â&#x20AC;&#x153;the teensâ&#x20AC;? when a steam engine crashed through it on its way across. But nobody seemed to know how a bridge wholly in one township could be jointly owned with another municipality. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There must have been something,â&#x20AC;? said Coun. Del Stowe. Public Works Manager Mark Segsworth offered a potential explanation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Way back when, Colebrook Road was the only crossing across the Napanee River for quite a stretch,â&#x20AC;? Segsworth said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They (L & A County) may have wanted to make sure it stayed open and were willing to pay for that.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ And further on roads and bridges, Segsworth said the Township is in the process of firming up agreements with neighbouring municipalities concerning cross-border routes. Segsworth said Parks Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent decision to reduce the weight restriction on the bridge at Chaffeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lock initiated discussions with the Township of Rideau Lakes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This would be our first formal agreement on boundary roads,â&#x20AC;? he said.

South Frontenac looking at credit card tax/utilities payments By Craig Bakay Reporter

Gazette News â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Residents of South Frontenac Township could soon have the option of paying their taxes, Township utility bills and things like building permits via credit card. Treasurer Louise Fragnito told Council at its regular meeting last week in Sydenham that â&#x20AC;&#x153;there have been some inquires from the publicâ&#x20AC;? and the corporate services committee has been exploring three options, one of which is the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;status quoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; of not accepting credit card payments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The company we use now for our debit transactions, Moneris, does offer the credit card option but to offer Visa or Mastercard payments to taxpayers, we would have to become a merchant,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Under such an agreement, the minimum percentage is 1.54 per cent plus per transaction fees of .5 to 2 per cent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, this percentage is based on payment volume and could fluctuate between 1.54 and 5 per cent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This would also put the Township in the position of having to charge the fee on an ongoing basis and fully be responsible in reconciling and collecting the fee.â&#x20AC;? She said the option the committee was leaning towards was a third-party payment processor that is primarily web-based named Paymentus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re registered in Nova Scotia but their head office is in Toronto,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Other municipalities use them.

Hall user fees likely inevitable in South Frontenac, but how much is still uncertain By Craig Bakay Reporter

â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have quoted a user fee of 2.85 per cent for taxes and a flat fee of $5.95 for utilities and when they collect the payment from a user, they deposit the funds collected on the Townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s behalf into the Townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bank account. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is no cost to the Township.â&#x20AC;? Fragnito said she expected some new information soon and asked that the approving bylaw be deferred until this information arrives. While most councilors were sympathetic to the requests of some ratepayers for credit card payment, they also had concerns. Coun. Al McPhail said that some people may like the option because making a payment by credit card could mean they wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be in arrears, even if something happened to the payment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We already have a situation where if a person is unable to pay at the deadline, we can make arrangements,â&#x20AC;? said Coun. John McDougall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why would we encourage someone to add 2.85 per cent or $5.95?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are some who have rewards points systems,â&#x20AC;? said CAO/Clerk Wayne Orr. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure a fee of $28.50 on $1,000 would be worth the points.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some might like the convenience but personally, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d walk my money down to Sydenham for that,â&#x20AC;? said Dep. Mayor Ron Vandewal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to offer,â&#x20AC;? said Mayor Gary Davison. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we have to make sure we let people know what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in for.â&#x20AC;? Council agreed to deferring the motion until further information is available.

Gazette News â&#x20AC;&#x201D; South Frontenacâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s controversial policy of charging user fees for its halls to groups that previously paid nothing came up again at its regular meeting last week in Sydenham, although no formal resolution is yet in place. At the previous weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Committee of the Whole meeting, several groups (consisting primarily of seniors) using primarily the Storrington and Perth Road Village Halls let Council know in no uncertain terms what they thought of the new policy and the way it was communicated. Many cited the financial hardships they would immediately face with the new policy and Council agreed to put the whole thing on hold until they could come back with a better plan. But it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look like most of those groups will be using the halls totally for free forever. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not politically correct to implement user fees in an election year, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had several calls asking â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not paying for the halls, why does my kid have to pay to play on your soccer fields?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? said Mayor Gary Davison. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It may not be as crisp as all that but we still need to be responsible to all the taxpayers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And we definitely dropped the ball on communicating that.â&#x20AC;? Coun. Bill Robinson, however, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t agree. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no way we can have user fees,â&#x20AC;? Robinson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pretty soon, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be paying for breathing.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m dead set against it.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Are the kids going to play hockey for free at the arena too?â&#x20AC;? asked Davison. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This needs to be looked at from every angle.â&#x20AC;? CAO/Clerk Wayne Orr confirmed that there is evidence that the Storrington Seniors were promised free use of the hall in return for their fundraising and equipment acquisition efforts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But that agreement pertains only to the Storrington Seniors,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still looking for some kind of Council documentation on it.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The meeting (committee of the whole) started with everybody being defensive,â&#x20AC;? said Coun. John McDougall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I think generally there is support for a user fee schedule. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The problems are with organizations that have had historical free usage and not-forprofits (such as some of the programs run by Northern Frontenac Community Services and others). â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only a dozen or so organizations and most of them are in Storrington.â&#x20AC;? Coun. Al McPhail agreed that some sort of system could be worked out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think what we need is two levels (of user fees),â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We could make arrangements for the president of the organization to request (lower fees) on a yearly basis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I suspect if these groups had predictable fees to deal with, they would.â&#x20AC;? But that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t good enough for Robinson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Good God, what are we doing?â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Are we in such need of funds that we have to get them from all those women that only get old age security?â&#x20AC;?

The things that would Late invoices can now affect vendor’s performance rating make Mary happy in South Frontenac could fill a book By Craig Bakay Reporter

Columnist editorial@theheritageemc.ca

Gazette Lifestyle - It was unusual for Miss Crosby to break with routine. But that Friday the snow was coming down so heavily, we couldn’t see the barns when we got up in the morning, and that had a lot to do with her changing our usual afternoon school day work. Parents would be coming with sleighs and cutters to take us home, which in itself was unusual. The weather had to be pretty fierce to warrant a ride to or from the Northcote School! And so Miss Crosby announced after recess, we all could put our books away, keeping out only our grammar notebooks. We had at least an hour to put in. Miss Crosby said, to cheer us up on that cold and blustery Friday, we were to write (or in my case, print), all the things we could think of that made us happy. I gathered seeing bad Marguirite falling flat on her face was not exactly what Miss Crosby had in mind. She also said, we were to take our grammar books home to finish up our lists as homework. I could see the senior pupils writing with great speed, whereas it took me forever to print my very first line in my scribbler. I had absolutely no trouble coming up with the very first thing that made me happy on a winter’s day, especially on that particular Friday. Father would be coming with the flatbottom sleigh, I would be sitting in the very front with him, wrapped in the fur blanket he would toss in before leaving the barns. And I would be listening to the sleigh bells hanging around the necks of King and Queen, as they plop-plopped through the deep snow. I thought, back then, that the sleigh bells made the most beautiful sounds in the whole world. I especially liked them at night, driving in our long lane, or coming across the snow-covered twenty-acre field. Often they would lull me to sleep, leaning against Father’s shoulder, and I would feel the utmost contentment and happiness. And so sleigh bells headed my list. Smelling freshly baked bread when I walked in the house after coming from school simply had to go on my list too. And seeing the high, fat loaves, lined up on the bake table, and knowing I would be able to claim the outside crust off at least one of them, caused my mouth to water, as I printed homemade bread on my list. And crawling into beds that had been made up with fresh sheets taken off the clothes line that day gave me special joy and a great feeling of happiness. I would fall asleep with my nose crushed into the pillow to get the most

Gazette News — South Frontenac introduced new guidelines for the receipt and payment of invoices from vendors and expense claims from employees and members of Council at its regular meeting last week in Sydenham. “The timely receipt of vendor invoices and expense claims from employees or members of Council is important in providing up-to-date and accurate information to managers and Council,” said CAO/ Clerk Wayne Orr in his report. “It was recommended at the corporate services committee meeting that a policy be brought forward to ensure it is clear what the Township’s expectations are of vendors as well as employees and members of councils in relation to invoices and expense claims.” The Township now requires that invoices/expense claims be received within 60 days of the date services were provided, goods were delivered or expenses were incurred. “Delays in receiving timely invoices will affect the rating of a vendor’s performance during the procurement process including contract renewal, and may result in work being awarded to other vendors,” he said. “Is this a situation where one kid in class acts up and you give the whole class detention?” asked Coun. John McDougall. “I’m not concerned with the intent but rather the wording,” said Coun. Al McPhail. “It says that payment has to be approved by Council and payments are processed regularly with the payment date matching Council meetings within the month. “What if a new Council decides to meet only

Working with an Interior Designer So you’ve made the decision to make some changes to your home. Hiring an interior designer can make this process a little less stressful and help you achieve a personal, stylish and beautiful look for your home. Common myths about interior designers are that they’re only used by the rich and famous or that they will take over your home and throw out all of your belongings! Rest assured, an interior designer will be respectful of budget and work with you to design a look that fits your home and its existing elements.

What is an interior designer? An interior designer is a trained professional with knowledge of interior design concepts and finishes. They understand the various genres and styles of architecture, furnishings, wallcoverings, colours and fabrics, and have the ability to put these all together to create an atmosphere that truly reflects the personality of the client.

Tips on finding a designer • Word of mouth – a good reputation speaks for itself • Interview potential candidates before you commit. Ask to see a portfolio of work they’ve done and discuss schedules and fees involved. • Fees may be based on hourly rates, daily billing or fixed depending on the project.

Getting started An interior designer will meet with and work closely with you to discuss your family’s lifestyle and daily activities, your design ‘wish list’, which rooms in your home you’d like to revive or improve and budget expectations. Your designer will then take this information and develop a strategy that will make the best use of funds that are available. Designers can work on a variety of projects and a variety of budgets – from acting simply as a consultant or supplier, a liaison between you and a contractor or builder or an excellent industry contact. A designer can help give your home that ‘wow factor’ which can be

especially beneficial if you’re thinking about selling it and setting it apart from other homes on the market. Interior designers often provide both design consultation and product specification, which allows you to work with one supplier rather than having to seek out a number of reliable sources. Designers can specify and order a large selection of wall coverings, draperies, paints, accessories, floor coverings and furniture, using reputable suppliers and quality products. You save time and money and make the best use of your designer’s expertise. An interior designer can use their skills to make your home design vision a reality. Whether you’re looking for small change or a complete makeover, a designer can possess that ‘eye for design’ to help your home tell its own personal story, room by room with every detail. The expert design staff at Tall Pines Interiors can help you each step of the way. Visit them at www.tallpinesinteriors.com for more information about their products and services.

benefit of the new smell, and wrap the sheet tight around my neck. And the scent would stay with me until my eyes heavily closed. The next day, the wonderful smell of freshness would be gone, but that night I would have nestled into a sweet happiness of sheer joy. Listening to my sister’s sweet voice, singing softly at night in bed, brought me special joy. Walking hand-in-hand with my best friend Velma to the Northcote School...girls did that back then, and knowing in my heart we would be best friends for ever...that brought me joy. When Mother could take something out of the hand-me-down box sent from Regina by Aunt Lizzie, like a man’s suit coat, or a once lovely blouse, or a man’s shirt, and take it apart, and it would turn into something I could wear to school...to me, brand spanking new...that brought me happiness. And I would feel such joy, knowing what a clever Mother I had. Just having a few pennies tied into the corner of my hanky, tucked in the very back of my washstand drawer, and thinking how rich I was, brought me a special feeling. I would handle it carefully, and one day I would take it into Walker’s Store in Renfrew and perhaps buy new hair ribbons, or walk down to the Dime Store and buy some butterscotch discs to suck on the way home to the farm. Such luxury back then when a few pennies could make the difference between feeling poor and rich. On a freezing Monday, knowing Mother had done the weekly wash, when I came home from school, I would know that the laundry would have been taken off the line to finish it’s drying in the kitchen. Everything would be stiff as boards, with Father’s and the brother’s long combination underwear standing like white soldiers against the wall by the stove frozen solid. The smells in the kitchen would be of freshness, and outdoors, and homemade soap, and I would sit and watch to see what piece of underwear would succumb to gravity first. I could never explain why just seeing the clean clothes, and inhaling the fresh smell of the frosty outdoors, brought me such happiness, but it did. I printed until it was bedtime. I would have a lot to share with Miss Crosby on Monday. Maybe I would get a little gold star stuck onto the page of my grammar scribbler. I went to bed thinking of all the things that could make me happy. And I knew then, the list would be endless. Even though there was little money for frivolity or luxuries, I had far more to write about than would fit into my grammar book. Interested in an electronic version of Mary’s books?

once a month?” “Then that new Council will have to pass a new bylaw,” said Mayor Gary Davison. Orr said that they do have procedures in place that acknowledge times when Council meets only once a month, such as summer meetings and Christmas. ••• South Frontenac Council passed a bylaw confirming the use of telephone/internet voting for the 2014 Municipal Elections. CAO/Clerk Wayne Orr told Council that although it had already approved the system, the confirming bylaw had to be passed in the year of the election. The bylaw establishes the “exclusive use of internet and telephone as the method of conducting the 2012 Municipal Elections and establishing the voting period from Monday, Oct. 20 at 8 a.m. to Monday Oct. 27 at 8 p.m. When Council members remembered the last election and the delay caused by an overloaded system, Orr said they would be using the same contractor for the voting system and that he had been assured they’d worked those bugs out of the system. ••• Coun. Bill Robinson told Council that despite “a local newspaper’s” speculation to the contrary, he had filed his papers and would be a candidate for Council representing Portland District in the 2014 election. Local contractor John McEwen also will be in the race for the Mayor’s position, and was in fact the first to file papers to that fact. The 2014 municipal elections are scheduled for Monday, Oct. 27. The last day to file nomination papers is Friday, Sept. 12.

Who the hell is going to pay $4 for a piece of toast? Only in San Francisco you say? Craig Bakay Reporter

editorial@theheritageemc.ca

Gazette Editorial â&#x20AC;&#x201D; As if we needed any other indications that the apocalypse is upon us, get this â&#x20AC;&#x201D; San Francisco now has several outlets whose prime purpose is to sell designer toast at $4 a slice. And folks are lining up to fork over their money for this crap. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe it? Google â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;designer toastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and see what comes up. It must have something to do with status symbols. Why else would someone pay too much for something they can make at home for a tenth of the cost. Sure, they slice it a little thicker and spread honey made from virgin bees under a full moon on it. Then they sprinkle a little East Timorian, handrubbed albino saffron on top and blast the whole thing with a propane torch. P.T. Barnum would have loved this. Of course this sort of thing has

been rampant since the self-indulgent â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s gave way to the apathetic â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s and whatever this 21st Century is called. Coffee is a good example. Something that once cost 10 cents (Somebody loan me a dime . . .) and can now cost you $5 for a smaller cup. But you know, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been around much longer than that. For example, in the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s it was generally assumed the more expensive your sound system was, the better it sounded. Never mind that the vast majority of people didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize that the high frequency response they were touting couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be heard by dogs, let alone human beings. If it cost more, it was better. It actually goes back a lot further than that. Hans Christian Anderson published The Emperorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s New Clothes in 1837 and despite the fact that the â&#x20AC;&#x153;new clothesâ&#x20AC;? didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exist, everybody complemented the emperor on his new duds, not wanting to admit they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t actually see them or that his highness was actually buck naked. (Reports vary as to the actual inspiration for this story but by several accounts, the Empressâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s matching outfit was even more stunning.) Yes Virginia, there is a sucker born every minute.

Now this specious approach to marketing doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily pertain to every new invention, however. Every guitar player knows that an amplifier that goes up to 11 is louder than one that goes up to 10. But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the exception rather than the rule. This just in: $4 toast is out, $7 toast is now the gold standard. The difference with a $7 slice is that the bread is burnt and comes with ricotta cheese. No doubt the stinky blue cheese version will bump the price further. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really a shame here is that those two New York designer treats, the Cronut and the Cragel, never really got their chance to shine on a global level. Who wants a donut/croissant or bagel/croissant hybrid when you can have that wonder of modern society, the designer toast? What seems to be missing from this new phenomenon is some sort of ethnic angle to make it seem even more legit. So picking up on that omission, I think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll start my own chain of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;designerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; food outlets drawing on my own ethnic heritages. Oatmeal perogies anyone?

Body acceptance? Now thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a stretch. Hollie Pratt-Campbell Reporter

@hollieprattcamp

Heritage Editorial - To everyone who follows me on Instagram: I feel like an apology is in order. The month of January has not been a typical stream of cute photos of Summer and other random pretty things that catch my eye. Instead, you have been subjected to photo after photo of me doing yoga â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not exactly the prettiest sight in the world, but something that has become important to me nonetheless. Allow me to explain myself. Early in the month, I noticed that a number of the bloggers I follow were participating in something called the #jan14yogachallenge. For those who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t speak hashtag, this means that every day in January 2014 you have someone photograph you (or photograph yourself) doing the yoga pose of the day. The pose is determined by someone called @beachyogagirl, a gorgeous

blonde woman who lives on a beach in southern Florida and appears to Instagram nothing other than amazing pictures of herself doing yoga on said beach. I find @beachyogagirl very inspiring - for her yoga skill, for her beauty, and, of course, for the amazing place she calls home. I was so inspired that I decided to participate in this challenge. Only instead of gorgeous blonde locks and a perfectly formed pose on a beautiful sunny beach, my poor Instagram followers get frumpy old me awkwardly stumbling into a half-assed version of the same pose in my blah living room. There are two reasons why I have continued with this challenge, both of which are quite selfish. The first reason is that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s improving my photography skills. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m used to being behind the camera, and have very little experience taking timed photos of myself. Because I have a small child who requires constant attention, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much easier to run home at lunch when the house is empty and snap one of myself than it is to set something up in the morning or

evening when Steve and Summer are home. Plus, the lighting is crap then anyway at this time of year. Figuring out where to place the camera for the perfect angle then running to get into the pose on time has been a fun challenge. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve moved furniture, brought out stacks of books and even invented my own little camera-holding contraption in an attempt to get things just right. Secondly, contrary to what one might assume, the #jan14yogachallenge is a great exercise in body acceptance. Those who have followed my column for a while know that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve dealt with disordered eating and body confidence (or lack thereof)-related issues since I was a teenager, and that these are problems I am trying hard to overcome in order to set a positive example for Summer. I have practiced yoga for many years, mostly in studios that have no mirrors, and letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just say that how I imagined myself looking in these poses is quite a bit different from how I actually look. At first I thought there was no way I was ever going to post pictures that highlight how wide my hips are or the flab on my

Hoping â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the shadowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is a no-show Gazette Editorial - Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the end of January, finally, and time for that special day known as Groundhog Day. This Sunday, Kingstonians and many Canadians will wait for that crucial moment when a groundhog wakes from hibernation and decides our winter fate. The tradition, for those that arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t aware, states that if the groundhog sees its shadow we will suffer through six more weeks of winter, but if there is no shadow, spring will come early. Groundhog Day is celebrated annually in North America on Feb. 2 and some Christian churches celebrate Candlemas on this day. Other people mark Groundhog Day as the date to take down their Christmas decorations. In Wiarton, Ontario, Groundhog Day is celebrated with a weekend-long festival that receives national and international attention each year. Wiarton Willie is perhaps the most famous groundhog and the residents of this small Ontario town gather each year, with extreme seriousness, to see what exactly Willie will predict. While it may not be the same Willie each year (groundhogs have a lifespan of four to nine years), the prediction is done at an exact time each year, and thorough records have been kept since Willies first prediction in 1956. The events grow in size and scope each year and include dances, contests, parades, and pancake breakfasts. With all of this hoopla, we have to question the validity behind it all. Can a groundhog actually predict the weather and the arrival of spring? There is much debate surrounding this question and if you ask a Groundhog Day organizer they will surely answer differently than an actual meteorologist. According to meteorology, Willie has been accurate only 37 per cent of the time, but organizers will tell you he is right 90 per cent of the time. Perhaps the truth lies in your level of optimism and dedication to Groundhog Day. Maybe this is a glass half full or half empty type of scenario. Regardless, Groundhog Day traditions are still going strong with multiple other groundhogs across Canada participating each year, like Gary the Groundhog in Ontario, Brandon Bob in Manitoba and Balzac Billy in Alberta. Perhaps the tradition is just our Canadian way of dealing with winter? Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve sure had a heck of a winter thus far, and even if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe in Groundhog Day you must be hoping, like us, that they do not see their shadows this year. Come on spring!

upper arms. Then I went through a phase where I thought, no, I would do the challenge because it would be a great incentive for me to lose weight, and off I started down that familiar destructive path. Then one day mid-month I had a breakthrough. I thought, who cares if people see how big my hips look in headstand? If people want to think lesser of me because of my ample, child-bearing hips, then so be it. Most people I know wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t anyway because most people I choose to associate with arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t superficial morons. Then it occurred to me that hey, maybe I should stop being a superficial moron too when it comes to judging myself. I have no idea if this amazing feeling of body confidence will last, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m enjoying it while it does. That, and the fun photography element of the challenge, is why I will continue to bombard my followers with yoga selfies for the remainder of the month. Once again, I apologize to my Instagram friends, and thank them for their patience as I pursue this indulgence.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kingston host an evening of comedy to raise funds for programming By Mandy Marciniak

mmarciniak@theheritageemc.ca

Gazette Events – Laughter is a great way to bring people together, so why not host a comedy show for a cause? That is exactly the thought behind the Big Brothers Big Sisters upcoming fundraiser at Absolute Comedy in Kingston. “This is the first time we have done a fundraiser like this,” said Camille Orellano, Community Relations Developer for Big Brothers Big Sisters KFL&A. “We have a fund development committee and it consists of various volunteers. One of our volunteers, Monica, proposed the idea of doing a fundraising comedy show. She has been to a few shows and she thought it would be a lot of fun.” The fundraiser will take place on Jan. 30 at the new Absolute Comedy Club in Kingston. Orellano hopes that it will help generate some buzz for their annual Bowl for Kids fundraiser in March and hopefully attract some new donors too. “We are trying to get some new people to come out to different events and attract a different audience,” said Orellano. “We are hoping to hit different demographics that we haven’t been able to reach in terms of fundraising before and educate them on the agency and the other events that are coming up.” Funds raised through the comedy night will go to fund core programming for the organization. It will help with matches, in-school mentoring programs and Go Girls! and Game On! School programs. While they do receive a lot of donations throughout the year, funding programs can be difficult from year to year. “We usually have to get grants for our school programs and a lot of granters don’t like funding programs

that have been around for a long time, they like to focus more on the newer more exciting programs. This makes it a bit harder for us to get funding and we are also always in need of funding for our core programming and matching,” explained Orellano. The comedy night will feature a headliner, Marc Sinodinos, and many members of Big Brothers Big Sisters will be in attendance, including volunteers that can provide testimonials to those that want to learn more about the program. “We’re inviting our volunteers to come, but we are recommending that younger children not attend because the content may not be appropriate for them. It is great to have the volunteers there for members of the community to ask them questions and for them talk about their experiences. People like to know that their money is going to a good cause and our volunteers can certainly attest to that,” added Orellano. Overall, the evening is sure to be filled with laughter and fun. Orellano hopes that it is something that can be repeated in the future and she urges people to come out and support a great cause. “I think it is a unique fundraiser and one that I have not seen myself. It is a great opportunity to support kids in the local community and provide them with opportunities that they may not have otherwise. There are many important causes out there, but we address issues that a lot of other agencies overlook. We want to help kids realize their potential and help them see that there are opportunities for them to find friendship and mentorship and that is invaluable.” Tickets for the event are $15.

And what Wil didn’t mention was the handshake and hug from the president. Black Violin’s greatest obstacle is that they don’t fit a classification. It’s hard to box them in and the entertainment industry likes to put labels on musicians and slide them into tidy packages. But that’s also the strength of Black Violin. In the past, no one’s done what they’ve done. They’re creating their own path. It won’t be

long before everyone has heard of them. And remembers them. “How long we’ve stayed strong is definitely a blessing,” said Wil. You can be blessed by the sounds of Black Violin on Feb. 6, but good luck trying to sleep after their performance. Your legs will be twitching, wanting to dance all night. And your booty will be shaking. In a classical way. For tickets to Black Violin, go online to www. kingstongrand.ca or visit the Grand Theatre box office in person.

Ring in the Chinese New Year with food, fun and dance hpratt-campbell@perfprint.ca

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe a lot of people in the community are interested in Chinese culture, but they may not be aware of our existence,â&#x20AC;? Fan says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now they can come and see oh, this is what we do on the New Year.â&#x20AC;? So what can people expect? In addition to a delicious spread of food, many different Chinese New Year traditions will be recognized. Children will be given red envelopes with small sums

of money, for instance, symbolizing luck and prosperity for the new year. In addition, a lion dance will be performed. The lion dance can be traced to the origins of the Chinese New Year, recognizing another yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s symbolic â&#x20AC;&#x153;survival of the beastâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The symbol of the lion dance is for any festivity,â&#x20AC;? Mak notes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even [when there is] a new building, they might bring in the lion dance to open the new building or a new business.â&#x20AC;? For those interested in attending but unsure of what to contribute to the potluck, Mak says that by no means are they expecting everyone to bring traditional Chinese New Year fare. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think they should make what they are comfortable with. It will be interesting having their food, whatever type of cultural food they bring.â&#x20AC;? Indeed, he adds that even if someone arrives empty-handed, they will

Heritage Events - In China, the Chinese New Year, or â&#x20AC;&#x153;spring festivalâ&#x20AC;?, as it is known there, is by far the largest celebration of the year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Just before New Year], tens of millions of people are on the move in China,â&#x20AC;? explains Meilan Fan, member of the Chinese Canadian Association of Kingston and District (CCAKD). â&#x20AC;&#x153;No matter where they are, how far they are from their home, before New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eve they try to go home to have a big dinner with their whole family. I read an article joking that in that period, so many people are travelling from one direction to the other at the same time it might affect the rotation of the earth, and I believe it.â&#x20AC;? For Chinese Canadians living in Kingston, the Chinese New Year is also a very special time. The 15-day celebration is determined by the lunar calendar, and so it takes place at different dates each year, normally in late January or early February. This year, the first day of â&#x20AC;&#x153;the year of the horseâ&#x20AC;? falls on Jan. 31, and the CCAKD is organizing a very special community celebration to be held several days later on Feb. 8 at Our Lady of Fatima Parish. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are doing this Feb. 8 because that was the date thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s available, and because the New Year itself is a family day,â&#x20AC;? says CCAKD president Hay Boon Mak. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go out, usually, everybody stays home.â&#x20AC;? While the annual potluck has been going on for a number of decades - ever since the inception of the CCAKD in 1977 - this is the first year the organi-

zation has opened it up to all members of the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really shown this occasion to the general public, so we want to start doing that,â&#x20AC;? Mak says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never publicized it in the past, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only been our members basically.â&#x20AC;? Seeing as the event has historically had an extremely good turnout â&#x20AC;&#x201C; over 250 people came out last year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; organizers expect to host quite the crowd.

Reading and writing and remediation successful, they also launched writing and math remediation programs. “No one talks about fixing the problem,” said Maclean. “That’s what The Reading Clinic is all about. This is way more fixable than people thought.” She has the data to prove it. A study by Queen’s University researchers evaluated the effectiveness of the reading remediation program at The Reading Clinic. Following 50 children between the ages of six and 12, the research showed that children in the program improved in a range of reading skills approximately three times as fast as they had been improving prior to participating at the clinic, and approximately twice as fast as normallyachieving children. Maclean doesn’t blame teachers for the systemic shortcoming. “The training isn’t provided at teachers’ college,” she said. “Teachers are really distressed by not knowing how to move forward.” “Everything we do is based on the science of the past 25 years,” said Harrison. “We say we work in tears. Parents come and they see in hard numbers how far behind their child is. Or a parent will talk about their own struggles with reading. Or their child is upset about doing the work. There are lots of tears. Then there are parental tears when the child starts improving and putting their hand up in class for the first time.” Maclean said children who have difficulty reading are highly distressed and discouraged. That sparked her interest in a campaign for change in the educational

system. “One, we can remediate these kids and, two, we want to get teachers trained so they know how to do things in Kindergarten and Grade 1.” Harrison added that the public education piece involves alerting parents and teachers that dyslexia issues have nothing to do with IQ. “There’s an untapped potential,” she said. Maclean emphasized that there is good teaching happening in the local school boards. “We have good teachers. It’s an issue of teachers not being trained in specific areas like dyslexia remediation,” she said. “They can go through their Reading Specialist I and II training at university and learn nothing about remediation.” The Reading Clinic encourages schools to have more resources within classrooms. She noted that out of hundreds of children assessed over the years, only about five knew all the sounds for single letters in the alphabet. “That’s where we start,” she said. “We are teaching a skill. And if we can get Kindergarten and Grade 1 teachers to make sure that skill is integrated, we will have taken a big step. When you unlock potential, you change futures. There is so much potential in these kids, but they haven’t been taught how to read. We’re talking some core and very basic skills.”

Gazette Lifestyle – For some children, reading comes naturally. For others, not so much. Despite the best efforts of many parents, some children have difficulty learning to read. These children may be very bright, but when you can’t read well, it doesn’t take long to start feeling stupid. Without the ability to communicate in written form, one cannot read a public sign, a transit map, a book, a menu, a birth announcement or thousands of other important documents. Jan Maclean, an occupational therapist, was one of those parents who watched her children struggle with reading. She learned that dyslexia, the most common form of learning disability, is neurologically based, and is responsive to specialized, intensive treatment. This approach was not available in Ontario, so she travelled to the United States to find help. “We actually know how to teach these kids to read,” she said. “We got help for my kids. They learned to read.” Her son later told her, “I can remember feeling stupid, but I don’t feel stupid anymore.” Maclean became committed to developing the skills to become a specialized reading therapist. She teamed up with Jennifer Harrison and together they trained in a number of multi-sensory structured language programs, including the Orton-Gillingham approach and in 2002 opened The Reading Clinic, which now comprises eight staff members. The clinic’s programs have been so

The Reading Clinic offers intensive instruction in phonological awareness, phonics, syllabification, morphology, spelling, fluency and metacognition using extended practice and multisensory teaching strategies. The clinic is located in the basement of the old Robert Meek school on Bagot Street. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been so successful, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve added a clinic in the west end on Woodbine Avenue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do any general tutoring,â&#x20AC;? said Maclean. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are here for particular deficits. I want parents to know there is help for their child.â&#x20AC;? But Maclean emphasized that it all goes back to teachers colleges and school boards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dyslexic children are being discriminated against,â&#x20AC;? said Maclean. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like children with physical challenges in the past. Some children are in wheelchairs. Schools only had stairs. No one was intentionally discriminating against those children, but they couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get up stairs to go to school. We realized that and schools are now physically accessible. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we are back in that past with dyslexic children,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not intentionally discriminating against them, but the resources arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t available in classrooms to enable those children to learn.â&#x20AC;? If a teacher has been trained and there are resources, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s usually been on their own initiative. It is not provided on a system-wide basis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The school boards end up providing technology instead,â&#x20AC;? said Maclean. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had so many parents who have been told, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry, we can get a computer, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to learn to read like the other kids.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Harrison added that technology does help these kids. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s do all we can with the neurology that is there. There is a window of opportunity. Technology shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be our first response.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to think of preventing reading failure before that window of opportunity closes,â&#x20AC;? said Maclean. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re nine and in Grade 3, the amount of remediation needed is much larger. We always say to parents that if the child hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had a targeted remediation, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re probably not at their potential level. There is a sense in the

community that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing to do but accommodate these kids. That is so not true. Dyslexia is the most common learning disability. There is intervention and treatment that works.â&#x20AC;? Maclean did note that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s starting to see changes in school board attitudes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re recommending that teachers come to our courses,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel for teachers. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not for lack of will. They try so hard, but they are given so few resources and why werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t they given these skills in the first place at teachers colleges?â&#x20AC;? The Reading Clinic is a private centre. Maclean said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to see their work extended into the public sphere and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve taken steps to initiate that. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will always be those who can afford the best for their kids, but what about all the others?â&#x20AC;? Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve started to implement programs with the Boys and Girls Club, whose centre is upstairs in the same building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re teaching is about strong decoding skills,â&#x20AC;? said Jennifer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People say thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not real reading. But if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have those core skills and the basic mechanics of reading are not up and running, the higher level skills canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t occur.â&#x20AC;? Once a child falls behind in reading, multiple others issues arise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The emotional piece that goes on with these kids is half our work,â&#x20AC;? said Harrison. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A kid will often self-identify as the dumbest person in class. We talk about reading as a superpower. All the secrets of the world are open to you now because you can read.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is such human pain within the familiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; stories,â&#x20AC;? said Maclean. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kids pick up on the anxiety around their reading issue at home. They know in Kindergarten or Grade 1 that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re behind other kids. We had one kid who was always hiding in the closet. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had parents cry because they also acknowledge their own struggles with reading.â&#x20AC;? She stopped and after a momentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s silence said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are so many kids in pain. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be so bad. What we are doing is all evidencebased. The research is available. We know what works.â&#x20AC;? The Reading Clinic is open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays. For more information about The Reading Clinic, visit www.thereadingclinic.ca.

From oil paint to tin cans: discussion on what makes a good piece of contemporary art at the heart of OKWA 25th anniversary show By Hollie Pratt-Campbell hpratt-campbell@perfprint.ca

Gazette Events - How do you judge the quality of a work of contemporary art? Local artist Jane Derby admits that this is no easy task, but it’s definitely a topic she wants to discuss as part of the Organization of Kingston Women Artists (OKWA)’s 25th anniversary show this February. “Usually we have one juror who picks three things and we give prizes, but this year we’re going to have three,” Derby says, explaining that “There’s always a lot of controver-

sy around what the one juror picks because there is subjectivity in the choice, which is fine, but it’s always interesting what other people think.” The three jurors, writers Kamille Parkinson and Melanie Dugan, along with artist Daniel Hughes, will evaluate the pieces at the show’s opening reception, which takes place Feb. 8 in the Wilson Room of the Kingston Frontenac Public Library. Each will individually select their three favourite works, then present their choices in a panel format and lead what is expected to be an engaging, educational conversation about

art and what makes a piece “good”. Members of the public are invited to attend the discussion and to view the art pieces, ask questions of the panel and perhaps learn something about today’s art in the process. “What’s really important for me is that it’s going to be an interesting conversation around what’s valued in contemporary art, who values it, and what the public is supposed to think of all this,” Derby says. “Lots of times, people don’t have a clue what’s going on in contemporary art. And there’s a reason for that – it’s because it’s all over the place.” Derby, for example, is part of a

large art movement that sees pieces made from “found” or recycled materials. “For whatever reason, there’s a real movement in sculpture away from the typical materials - marble, wood, etc. - into these really weird areas with different sculpture materials,” she explains. Currently, Derby creates friezes out of tin cans. A piece from her series entitled “The Road to Seeley’s Bay” will be featured in the OWKA show. “I drive to Seeley’s Bay a lot to see a friend, and that’s inspired by the landscape on the road,” she says. “I grew up in Kingston and I love the landscape around here. It’s so spare and rocky. What interests me are the actual physical surfaces of the landscape and the textures of them. I love all that stubble that sticks out of the ground in the fall and winter.” The beauty of contemporary art, she says, is that there are so many different accepted ways of representing the land or anything else an artist is inspired by. “You can either do an illusion of those textures with paint, or you can recreate the textures with something else,” Derby says. “So essentially that’s why I started with

the found materials and that’s what interested me.” She is interested in seeing what the three panelists make of all this variety in contemporary art, and how they determine her piece – and indeed all of the pieces in the show – measure up against each other. “It seems that in the past there was more of a consensus of what made good art and what didn’t. Everybody was painting the Virgin Mary at one point and either you painted a good Virgin Mary or you didn’t. But now you’ve got people like me who work with tin cans, and then you’ve got people doing traditional and beautiful landscapes. So how does a person judge what’s going on here?” The works will be on display in the Wilson Room of the central branch of the Kingston Public Library from Friday, Jan. 31 to Wednesday, Feb. 26. The opening reception will take place on Saturday, Feb. 8, from 2 to 5 p.m. Jurors and members of the public will have plenty of time to choose their favorites before the public forum. The OKWA was formed in 1989 to provide a supportive community for women artists in Kingston. For more information, please visit www. okwa.org

New hybrid drive technology and old winter problems percar when it makes its return next year. Acura is promising that this advanced new hybrid power-train will deliver 0-100 km/h times of a V8 powered machine but with NRCan fuel ratings of 6.8 L/100 km city and 6.3 L/100 km on the highway. I’ve road-tested the current versions of Acura’s SH-AWD in their sport utility and cross-over models and because of its ability to increase or decrease the power to individual road-wheels depending on traction and driver input, it provides one of the most sure-footed rides for the money. The use of electric wheel motors will improve the response times of these adjustments and make this vehicle almost impossible to lose traction or control. The extreme cold that is gripping our area in cycles this winter certainly plays havoc with just about every system and component on our vehicles. One of the more common failures shops are dealing with this winter is power steering fluid leaks. When the mercury drops to the icy depths we’ve experienced, the hydraulic fluid that automotive power steering systems use can exert higher pressures on lines, pumps, and steering gears. This can lead to leaks, but

Gazette Lifestyle - At the recent Montreal International Auto Show, Honda and Acura, like most automakers represented, revealed some new models to the press and public. Unlike any other carmaker there, the technology they unwrapped demonstrated a very unique angle on performance power-trains which holds the promise of improved safety and handling on even the worst road conditions. Under the skin of the all-new 2014 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid sedan is the world’s first revolutionary threeelectric-motor drive to enter the passenger automotive arena. Under the hood is a V6 engine mated to an electric hybrid motor and a seven-speed transmission rated at 377 hp. The rear wheels are powered by individual electric motors in a very radical transformation of Acura’s legendary SH-AWD (super handling all-wheel drive). This technology will also be found in the 2015 Acura NSX su-

there are a few things you can do to minimize the risk and contain the damage. When you start your vehicle for a warm-up on a particularly frosty morning (temps at or below -25 degrees C, avoid over-revving the engine or moving the steering until the power-steering fluid has had a chance to circulate a bit. Unless the engine has fully warmed up, when you take off, take it easy and smooth on the turns until everything’s at operating temperatures. If you hear any unusual whining or groaning noises from the power-steering system, check the fluid level. If it’s low, you risk damaging the pump and other components not to mention the safety risk of losing steering assist. Before adding fluid, check your vehicle’s owners’ manual to ensure you top it off with the correct type. Here’s one last winter tip (hopefully for a while). This one my late father used to employ on his Ford. If you own an R0012517473_0123

older diesel farm tractor and need to use it on a frosty morning and have had trouble with cold-starts before, consider keeping an approved container of diesel fuel in a heated room (say around 20 L). Before trying an outdoor start-up, pour the warmed fuel into the tractor’s tank (make sure you’ve left enough volume for the full 20 L.) This can reduce the risk of diesel fuel gelling. Make sure your warm storage area is properly ventilated and the container is secured and well away from an excessive heat source or open flames.

Let’s help Dalton Lowe find his 1926 Dodge touring Gazette Lifestyle – Dalton Lowe of Stayner, Ontario, purchased a 1930 Model A Ford in 1965 but still misses the 1926 Dodge touring he bought and sold for $12 in 1946. First, the story on the Model A: “I bought my 1930 Model A Ford in 1965 from Hanna Motors, a Ford dealership in Collingwood. The car had been traded into the dealership by the local family physician, Dr. Bill Ives. He had purchased the car from an older gentleman who lived in Wasaga Beach. The older fellow asked Dr. Ives to care for him and in return he would get the car. This was in the days before OHIP! “Dr. Ives’ wife and children drove the car right up to 1965 as their family vehicle. Finally it was time to get her a newer car (she was tired of driving a car 35 years old!). “In 1965, I paid Hanna Motors $300 for the Model A. It was black and needed some work. In the ‘80s, I decided to have the car restored. It took a few years to have it completed but it was well worth it. It is now the sage green and butter cream colours, and is always a showstopper whenever I take it places. All seven of our children have had it for their weddings. And now the grandchildren have started to get married and we have used it to tour them around. It has also been driven to graduations and proms. “I have always had a love of vehicles.

In 1946, when I was 13, my buddy Denton Brownridge and I were delivering newspapers to make a few bucks. We delivered the paper to a fellow named Jack Aimes. He had a 1926 Dodge touring in his back shed. He didn’t drive and so the car had just been sitting there. I think there was only 12,000

miles on it. “Brownridge and I bought it for $12! It took us a bit to gather up the cash but we had a few part-time jobs and it was ours! Soon after purchasing it, we sold it to Eric Dickey of Stayner, for $75. What a profit! The deal was, he had to bring us back from Wasaga Beach.

Later that same week, he sold the car for $150. I really would like to find our 1926 Dodge touring. On the rad shell it had the letters BC.” If Dalton’s Dodge turns up, you’ll read all about it right here, where we bring old cars back to life. Stay tuned! I’m always looking for more stories.

Igniting a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;sparkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in St. Lawrence students By Mandy Marciniak

mmarciniak@theheritageemc.ca

Gazette News - Imagine gaining real world work experience and building a portfolio while still pursuing a college program in your desired field. This is exactly what students in the Spark program at St. Lawrence College are receiving as of this January. The program comes as part of a funding grant from the Ontario government called the Productivity and Innovation fund. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Funding was given to institutions that applied and there is a part of the grant that requires the money to be used to enhance the hybrid learning environment and that is where Spark comes in,â&#x20AC;? explained Ricardo Giuliani, Instructor in the Integrated Marketing and Communications program at St. Lawrence College. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The College is rewriting and revising its goals for the future and those will include a very interactive future that emphasizes handson learning and Spark will play a key role in supporting that mandate.â&#x20AC;? The program started with the funding and from there Giuliani bought production equipment, assessed the qualifications that came along with the funding and then hired students to run the program, which is actually a working production house. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My responsibility is to manage the students, coach them and look at the work that they are producing. We want to make sure that the quality is there in these materials and makes sure that the professors are happy with the work too. It also allows the students to create

a portfolio of work while they are still in school.â&#x20AC;? The group of students, seven in total, work on hybrid learning pieces for the faculty at St. Lawrence as well as the school itself. Instructors can use Spark to create introduction videos for their courses and the college can use it to create teaching videos that work for multiple faculties. â&#x20AC;&#x153;An example is a video we did from one professor teaching students how to give presentations,â&#x20AC;? explained Giuliani. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some programs donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t focus on how to do that and it is a valuable skill to have in order to communicate your ideas effectively. No matter what field you are in, you will have to make presentations of some kind and a professor may not have time to teach you how to give an effective presentation, but with this video, we can communicate these skills across the school and across all faculties. Our goal is to enhance the learning environment.â&#x20AC;? The group just started working on projects when classes resumed this semester and on Jan. 22 they held a launch party to let everyone, including faculty, know what they are all about. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to do a launch because we need the buy in from faculty,â&#x20AC;? added Giuliani, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to make sure that we could show them the services that are available and the products that they can receive through our services. The program is only a month old and in that month we were able to develop a brand and a marketing plan with seven students and now we are excited to launch it.â&#x20AC;? While the project is still in the very

early stages of development, Giuliani and his partner, Mike Kusters, hope that it will succeed for years to come and hopefully branch off into doing more production work for the school and community.

Food That Warms the Heart and the Soul Gazette Lifestyle – Baby its cold outside! Confession; I wear socks to bed in this weather. I hate being cold. I’ve been known to sit for long periods of time in my car before getting out to duck into a store. The mere thought sends chills up my spine. I stepped out the other day and froze my nose and a few other important body parts that were exposed. I like snow just not the kind that includes ice and deep dives in temperature. I feel like I’ve been waddling around like a penguin for months. The only escape (other than a trip south) is cooking, and preparing cold weather food so delicious it warms the cockles of your heart. I can’t be the only one who loves this time of the year (despite the cold); it means eating hearty, rich soups; deepdish casseroles; home baked cookies oozing with chocolate and roast Sunday dinners. In fact, in weather like this, a

roast is a welcome treat any day of the week. Busy weeknights? You can prepare a roast dinner well in advance and leave it simmering for the day. Nothing beats the aroma wafting through the house when you return. It’s unquestionably the most heart-warming sensation. It has the ability to lure not only the neighbor’s cats and dogs but their family too. Don’t forget your winter vegetables. A balanced meal helps fight off colds and speeds up recovery. After a summer of beans, tomatoes, zucchini and eggplant, winter squash seems a little boring. But, this amazing vegetable is considered a superstore of vitamins and it’s even low in calories. After a chilly dash from the car to your warm house, a bowl of acorn squash soup is a yummy way to regenerate. Try your hand at this savory pork recipe. Squash and a medley of roasted

vegetables are wonderful accompaniments to this wintery meal. The roast is first browned to sear in all of the juices. Prepare in a crock-pot for the day on low and let time do all the work. Braised Pork with Roasted Vegetables Serves 6 Ingredients: • One 3 ½ to 4 pound boneless pork loin • Sea Salt and freshly ground black pepper • 2 tablespoons of grape seed, olive or safflower oil (whichever you prefer to cook with) • 2 onions, coarsely chopped • 2 whole carrots, peeled and chopped • 4 potatoes, washed, peeled and cubed • 6 large garlic cloves, peeled and

• • • • • •

halved 2 sprigs of fresh savory 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme ½ cup of dry white wine 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley

Directions: • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Pat the meat dry and season generously on all sides with salt and pepper. • In a large soup pot with a lid, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the meat and brown, turning on all sides, about 10 minutes. Remove the meat and set aside. • Put the onions and garlic in the pot and cook until softened, scarping up any browned bits, about 7 minutes. Add the rosemary and thyme and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the

wine and bring to a simmer. • Add the meat to the crock-pot and vegetables, cover, and put in the oven. Cook all day the in the slow cooker or in the oven for 1 hour and 10 minutes, basting the roast every 20 minutes, until a meat thermometer inserted in the center registers 160 degrees F. Remove the meat to a cutting board and let sit for 5 minutes. • Meanwhile, bring the liquid in the pot to a low boil. Add the mustard and whisk until thickened. Add the parsley and whisk again. • Slice the roast into ½ inch slices and arrange on a platter with the roasted vegetables. Spoon the sauce over the meat and serve at once.

HOROSCOPES

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 – Aries, you have been living life in the fast lane, but this week you may need to apply the brakes. If you’re not careful, you could miss out on some exciting stuff. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 – Taurus, someone you know may feel like he or she deserves something that you have. Do not validate any jealousy and take the higher road by not engaging the situation. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 – Gemini, provide a steady and strong hand to keep someone you love on the right track. It may not be easy to be so supportive, but do what’s necessary to help a loved one. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 – Cancer, although you are very persuasive this week, you should focus all of your attention on selling yourself to others in the workplace. This can make promotion imminent. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 – Leo, you might sense that something isn’t quite right this week with a couple of people you know. Don’t be shy about asking questions to get to the bottom of the situation. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 – Virgo, it can be difficult to believe the truth sometimes, especially when the news is not what you want to hear. Don’t let disagreements cloud common sense. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 – Libra, mixing business and pleasure is not the right approach this week. Avoid starting new romantic relationships with someone in the office and focus on work. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 – Scorpio, remember that risk may ultimately bring reward when considering an investment opportunity. With this in mind, you may want go out on a limb this week. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 – Sagittarius, you are on a roll and you probably have no plans to slow down for anyone. Try to slow down and help others if you find yourself with some free time. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 – Capricorn, honesty is the best policy but you do not always have to be so forthcoming with your opinions. Employ tact if you are asked for your opinions on certain issues. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 – Even a minor disagreement could have you licking your wounds, Aquarius. Don’t use this week for sulking. Get back on the horse and dust yourself off. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 – Pisces, avoid potentially sticky situations this week. It is better to defer to an expert even if it means making a financial investment.

Kingston native brings comedy home By Kelly Reid Reporter

Gazette Events - â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone likes comedy, or at least the idea of it,â&#x20AC;? says Steve Dylan, writer and comedian at large. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And the shows have always been good in Kingston.â&#x20AC;? Though originally from the Limestone City, Dylan now lives in Toronto and performs across Canada. In addition to his writing work on the likes of The Jon Dore Television Show and This Hour Has 22 Minutes, Dylan has just finished shooting a comedic reality series for Discovery that will air in the spring, titled Foolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gold. Tomorrow, he returns to Kingston to perform his first show in over two years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The time just feels right to come back,â&#x20AC;? says Dylan. Dylan is a Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grad who spent several years in real estate consulting before finally quitting in 2005 to pursue comedy. A particularly dull consultation one afternoon

pushed him to take the plunge. Says Dylan, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I distinctly remember that being the moment that did it.â&#x20AC;? He says that he always knew the comedy was an area of interest, back when he was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;very artistic kidâ&#x20AC;? and then later as he became an SNL-obsessed teen. Once in Toronto, he was able to connect with

several key players in the comedy scene, including Canadian Comedy Award winner Mark Forward. Forward is a writer and comedian well known for his work on The Jon Dore Television Show and CBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mr. D. Forward will be performing alongside Dylan tomorrow and Saturday night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m pretty excited to be doing it with my buddy Mark,â&#x20AC;? says Dylan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you get better, you work together less.â&#x20AC;? As both Forward and Dy-

lan headline their own shows, they rarely get a chance to make appearances together. Dylan says that his show will draw on a variety of material, and says that no two shows are ever the same. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You mix and match it for where you are,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t corner myself. But I heard Kingston just got named the happiest city in Canada so theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re probably not splitting hairs over whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funny,â&#x20AC;? he jokes. Though he loves coming home to perform club shows, Dylan also has ambitions further afield. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to do a stand-up show on

the moon,â&#x20AC;? he kids. What does he really want to do? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love to be touring and doing theatres. Not to oversell it, but my show does get better if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re listening to it. And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll keep writing and working on my own show.â&#x20AC;? After Kingston, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be doing several shows in Toronto and Ajax before heading out west in April. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enough to chew on for now.â&#x20AC;? Steve Dylan and Mark Forward perform tomorrow and Saturday night at 9 p.m. at Time to Laugh Comedy Club. For tickets, visit www.timetolaugh.ca. R0012526903
