Railway Heritage Park in Sharbot Lake to get improvements this summer By Craig Bakay Reporter
Gazette News — Railway Heritage Park in Sharbot Lake is in for a facelift of sorts this summer as the Central Frontenac Railway Heritage Society received Council’s blessing for its upcoming projects at the regular Council meeting last week in Sharbot Lake. Society Chair Sally Angle said they had two projects they wanted Council’s approval for. “The first will be a paved display area behind the caboose which can be accessed by the steps as visitors leave the caboose or from round the end of the tracks near the shed,” she said. “It will have pavers set on gravel and a
small fence to define the area at the edge of the swamp and at its far end.” She said the purpose of the new area is to accommodate the baggage carts, which are currently on the grass in front of the track, thus eliminating the problem of cutting the grass around them. “We also have other artifacts which may be set up there,” she said. “Permanent signs will describe the artifacts. “There is also a possibility of extending this patio towards the shed. “The other project is signage on Road 38 which will alert travelers to the location of the park and caboose, she said. “There will be one at each end of Sharbot Lake.”
“I think this is wonderful,” said Mayor Janet Gutowski. “It’s the way I had it envisioned . . . kind of a town square idea.” “It’s beautiful,” said Dep. Mayor Frances Smith. “It will add to what’s there already and I think it would be a good spot for some tables and chairs.” “We’re trying to clean up the clutter,” said Society member Roger MacMunn. “Hopefully, it will get people to hang around and put more money in our bucket.” Coun. John Purdon wondered about signs directing people to Elizabeth Street. “Did you consider sending people down Robert Street rather than through the narrow area of downtown Sharbot
Lake?” Purdon said. “Well, we thought Elizabeth Street might be better because if they miss it going by, there’s always the second chance,” said MacMunn. “People meandering through our central business district . . . why wouldn’t we want that?” said Gutowski. MacMunn said that the project would be funded through the Society’s efforts but “we would be humbled if we could get somebody with a Township backhoe to dig some post holes because there is a lot of rock there.” Gutowski suggested that the County has a small fund for signage type projects and with regards to having post holes dug: “I know somebody.”

Council approves additional raking, washroom cleaning at Oso, Olden beaches Reporter
Gazette News — Beaches in Olden and Oso Districts will get a little extra attention this summer following a decision by Central Frontenac Council at its regular meeting last week in Sharbot Lake. Council opted to go with the extended service recommended by Chief Building Official Jeremy Neven despite the added costs. The decision was precipitated by the fact that the current beach maintenance contractor opted not to finish out the third year of a threeyear contract. The new price tag for raking beaches and cleaning washrooms comes to $124,580 for three years. That’s a price bump of $38,480 but not all of that is due to increased service levels. “Just to maintain what we had would cost an additional $23,200 over the three-year contract,” Neven said. In Olden District, beaches will now be raked daily instead of weekly. In Oso,
which includes the beach in Sharbot Lake, raking will also be daily instead of weekly and the washrooms and raft will be cleaned once a day. Council opted out of an option for twice daily cleaning at Oso Beach, which would have cost an additional $2,000. Neven said that they haven’t received any complaints about beach maintenance in Hinchinbrooke or Kennebec Districts. However, Coun. Tom Dewey, who represents Kennebec, said he had feedback, mostly from the Friends of Arden asking for maintenance on the new trails. “We’ve always done the ones down by the creek and that will continue,” said Neven. “But the one up the hill isn’t included. “Pretty tough for a contractor to bid on maintaining a trail when it’s got three feet of snow on it and he won’t know what equipment would be needed.” “We have identified new trails in Kennebec District,
but Council didn’t give any direction on them for this tender,” said CAO/Clerk Larry Donaldson. Mayor Janet Gutowski urged caution when it comes to trail maintenance “until we look at how it would be managed.” But overall, she said she was in agreement with improving the level of service on area beaches. “In listening to the volunteers we work with, I feel I’m in agreement with the increases in Olden and Oso,” Gutowski said. “I’m not getting a lot of complaints from Hinchinbrooke but we are a tourist area and we need to make sure our beaches are attractive.” Gutowski said that beach maintenance might be something Council would want to revisit before the end of the new contract, perhaps exploring the possibility of using summer students. Additional service in Kennebec District would have cost $7,000 more and additional service in Hinchinbrooke District would have cost $2,800.

Proposal to reduce amnesty waste loads again goes down to defeat Donaldson. “The other one was about having the amnesty period or not. “To me, it’s a different motion.” New motion or not, there didn’t seem to be a lot of support for this idea either. “For one thing, the time frame isn’t long enough,” said Smith. “I think we’re bound to not keep changing the dates because of the difficulty of getting the information out to people. “I’m not in support of this and if you keep changing it, people will stop using it and it will peter out completely, just the way you want Kyle.” “I really feel Council has spoken with some consistency on this,” said Coun. Norm Guntensperger. “You can’t keep fiddling with it and bringing it back.” In a recorded vote, only Coun. Jeff Matson, Tom Dewey and John Purdon were in favour of reducing the amnesty to just the fall period. “That means the amnesty load dates will be the same as last year,” Donaldson said.
By Craig Bakay Reporter
Gazette News — Central Frontenac waste management supervisor Kyle Labbett’s attempt at a second kick-at-the-can concerning the Township’s amnesty load program fell flat at last week’s regular Council meeting as Council was having none of any more reductions for the service. In his report, Labbett suggested that eliminating the spring amnesty period would save the Township $500. “For the past two years, the amnesty load program has run from the Saturday of the weekend before the Victoria Day long weekend to the Sunday of the following weekend and from the Saturday of the weekend before the Labour Day weekend to the Sunday of the following weekend,” Labbett said in his report. “The numbers from the Oso waste site were examined in 2013 and 71 people used the spring time period and 164 used the fall period, meaning 70 per cent (69.79 per cent) used the fall period. “Due to the cost to operate the program, there are efficiencies to be had by reducing 566 Cataraqui Woods Dr., Kingston, ON K7P 2Y5 TICO#50007364 the program to only the fall time period. “By reducing the time period it will DEMI LOVATO IN CONCERT ...............................

Places to explore and things to experience
Back to the land, respectfully By Mark Bergin Columnist
in concrete containers struck Upitis as absurd. She realized that intelligent people can be heavily disconnected from nature. She returned to Kingston and wanted to create ways to provide education on sustainable living, our planet and the climate. Upitis thought she had to do something, and that something became Wintergreen Studios, a non-profit, charitable organization that offers year-round wilderness education and retreats in the Frontenac
Arch and Biosphere, about an hour from Kingston. Wintergreen offers an off-grid setting for workshops on arts, culture, education and sustainable living. They’ve also established an independent literary press. “Part of the impetus for Wintergreen was to provide a place where people could experience contact with the natural world,” said Upitis. “I wanted to make a difference in people’s lives.
How we live affects whatever future we leave for our children. “It’s also an interesting place for established and emerging writers. We’ve hosted readings by people like Lorna Crozier, Lawrence Hill and Stephen Heighton. We also hold regular events like dinner concerts and other entertainment.” She said Wintergreen has brought the local community together. Continued on page 15
Daytripper - A facade of gardening made a life-altering impression on Rena Upitis. When the Queen’s University arts education professor attended a conference in Chicago in 2007 she noticed some odd things. “I was walking up the street and saw a concrete planter with mulch in it,” she
said. “I looked down the street and saw a bunch more planters. A massive truck arrived, bringing tulips in full bloom. They planted them in the planters. They had to mulch them all or they’d die because they were growing them somewhere else and bringing them in. Someone said, ‘Oh, look, spring has arrived.’ But it comes in two trucks: one with mulch; one with bulbs.” Thinking that spring arrives when trucks bring blooming tulips to place

In Our Opinion
Crisis? What Crisis? Oh yeahâ€Ś
So, MOE, just exactly what are we supposed to do with our garbage once the landfills are closed? Craig Bakay Reporter
drive on asphalt. Anything that has oil on it really isnâ€™t recyclable. Bacon grease on a paper towel makes it useless even for newsprint as a remarkably small bit of oil or grease in a vat of paper pulp can screw up the works. And there are still a lot of plastics (albeit some of them have been recycled once or twice already) that canâ€™t be recycled. Each time you recycle plastic, it degrades a notch. Sure recycling is a great thing but regardless of how hard we try, weâ€™re just not going to be able to recycle everything and eliminate garbage entirely. The concept is simply a foolâ€™s errand and has been ever since human beings started making things. Now, while the idea of throwing our garbage into a big hole and covering it up with dirt isnâ€™t necessarily the best one weâ€™ve ever come up with, nevertheless, we have a lot of infrastructure and practice tied up in it. OK, maybe we shouldnâ€™t have dumped all that stuff in the Bay of Quinte to create Zwickâ€™s Island and maybe filling up swamps with garbage isnâ€™t the best idea for the watershed but dammit, what are we supposed to do with it?
This is where the MOE leaves a lot to be desired . . . an awful lot. Itâ€™s one thing to say â€˜you canâ€™t do that.â€™ Itâ€™s quite another to say it without providing any viable alternative. Municipalities whose landfill sites are closed are left with the only option of trucking their waste elsewhere. But where the hell are they supposed to truck it TO? Isnâ€™t it about time the MOE stepped up to the plate with some solutions to a major problem they themselves helped create? Rather than suggesting we all buy local (which most of us were doing long before they jumped on the bandwagon), how about taking lead on alternative waste management ideas. There are a lot of intriguing ideas out there given the new materials being created such as ceramics capable of withstanding Sun-like temperatures but these sorts of projects are beyond the scope of even several municipalities banded together. If the MOE really wants to save the planet, itâ€™s time to stop telling us how wonderful they are and come up with some practical solutions.

Gazette Column â€” Have you ever spent much time browsing the Ministry of the Environment (MOE) website? No? Didnâ€™t think so. Whatâ€™s striking about it is that in between all the motherhood statements and self-serving rhetoric about how theyâ€™re protecting the planet and all, thereâ€™s precious little about what weâ€™re going to do with all the garbage once the landfill sites are all closed. Itâ€™s a wonderful thing to recycle. But to date, nobodyâ€™s figured out how to recycle a used diaper other than as bear food (plus the Ministry isnâ€™t big on that, asking for bear fences around a number of landfill sites). There are a lot of other things you just simply canâ€™t recycle. Coloured glass comes to mind. It used to be that South American roads were made from crushed glass but then they clued in that itâ€™s much more comfortable to

8 The Frontenac EMC - Thursday, March 20, 2014
Our paper took note of a spate of editorials over the past few weeks taking aim at the politicized notion that the middle class is in decay. The authors marshaled Statistics-Canada data to demonstrate that income, wages, and net-worth were all up across the board over the last 15 years, and therefore the crisis is a complete fabrication. Margaret Wenteâ€™s â€œThe phony crisis of the middle classâ€? proclaimed â€œevery income group in Canada has gotten richer, while the people at the very top have gotten filthy rich. Is this a problem? You decideâ€?, while the National Postâ€™s John Shmuel wrote â€œthe three middle quintiles â€” which can roughly be defined as Canadaâ€™s middle class â€” increased their share of the countryâ€™s $8.07 trillion personal net worth by 1.8 percentage points.â€?Â Â The overall message was crystal clear: The data speaks for itself. Youâ€™ve never been doing better. Keep calm and carry on. Everything is fine.Â Well, not quite.Â As economists Eugene Lang and Frank Graves have argued in the Toronto Star, Wente and Shmuel gloss over the fact that the net worth boom is almost entirely due to the phenomenal increases in housing values, which has had the doubly negative effect of pricing a new generation out of the housing market while enabling boomers to drown themselves in lines of credit and credit card debt. Then of course, thereâ€™s the troubling question of how long can the housing boom possibly last before meeting its inexorable end? Total debt has increased 110 per cent over the past 15 years, from about $450 billion to well over $1 trillion. These are supremely uncomfortable debt-loads, all underpinned by a housing market that may very well be on the brink of catastrophe. This level of personal debt is relatively new for our country, and most economists worth their weight fully realize that itâ€™s not at all sustainable without significant economic growth. Which turns us to the question of wages. Methodologies vary on how best to calculate what income growth translates to in real-world terms. Most have settled on the concept of â€˜real wages,â€™ which is a reflection of how much your earned income can actually buy when itâ€™s adjusted for inflation. Andrew Sharpe at the Centre for the Study of Living found that the median real wage increased from $41,348 to $41,401 (in 2005 constant dollars) over 25 years. Thatâ€™s $63. Not exactly boom time figures. In fact, the same Stats-Can report referenced by Wente and Shmuel found that over 30 years, real wages only grew by $2.50 for men and $4.50 for women, which translates to 11 per cent and 26 per cent, respectively (in 2010 dollars).Â Hardly enough to support and drive the kind of debt binging currently fueling the economic â€œrecoveryâ€? from the 2008 economic collapse. Things are different now - more precarious, less just. We really arenâ€™t richer than we think.

Wolfe Island Rink Roof Project Moves Forward on its way up like a well planned “ Make Dreams Come True” Meccano Set” with cherry pickers and cranes on site, and qualified workers set to take on the task of setting the steel frame in place on the completed cement base around the rink. All in preparation for the trusses and steel roof and skirting expected to arrive next week that will (as weather permits) complete the project. The rink, for those who have not seen it, is situated in front of the building that houses the artificial ice machine.

“We’re about an hour out of Kingston,” she said. “Locals who come to our events tend to drive about 15 minutes to get here. The community has become united by having Wintergreen here. We have entertainment, concerts and readings that the world would envy and many of our visitors only drive minutes to get here. It’s been a huge community builder for locals.” Upitis explained that funding for the setting comes from a variety of sources. Wintergreen relies on revenue from workshops and events, rentals for people who want a visionary meeting or personal retreat in the woods, and from donations. “We also have a number of partnerships with community organizations and grant income sources,” she said. “These include TD Friends of the Environment and the Ontario Trillium Foundation.” They also host free events for schools and a regular open house series so people can see the kinds of things that go on at the site. “There are so many myths out there about living off-grid and renewable energy,” she said. “Off-grid doesn’t have to be ugly, dank and dark. Wintergreen is a working model of how a centre can function in a way that is respectful of the environment without obsessing about every detail. Many of the techniques we use can be integrated into homes, work, and schools.” She said the guiding vision at Wintergreen is the art of living sustainably. “The art part is important,” she said. “The sensibilities we bring as artists to sustainability education have the ability to intertwine art, culture and the environment in powerful and energizing ways. We want to model a kind of living that is really satisfying and connected to the natural world.” Wintergreen also features gardens and they grow a lot of their own food used during events.
“We operate with the idea of being principled, but not perfect,” said Upitis. “So yes, we use local and organic food to the extent possible, but we still buy avocados. The idea is to be mindful about the choices we make, but not to beat ourselves up if every choice isn’t perfectly correct. In that spirit, we hope to encourage people to make small changes in their lifestyles that, cumulatively, have an enormous and positive effect.” She offered an example of how altering our appliance usage can have a significant impact of power consumption. “Many appliances continue to draw a small amount of power when they are switched off,” she said. “Vampire power costs US consumers $3 billion a year. These phantom or vampire loads occur in most appliances that use electricity, such as videos, televisions, stereos, computers, and kitchen appliances. These power draws can be avoided by using a power strip to cut all power to the appliance. Some vampire power draws include: laptop, $16 per year; computer, $34 a year, laser printer, $13 a year; and the plasma TV, $160 a year.” Wintergreen also offers educational resources for schools and teachers. There’s an education tab on their website with extensive resources for use in classrooms at the elementary curriculum level in Kindergarten through Grade 8 and in secondary Grade 9 to 12 classrooms. The resources look at areas of human impact on the environment: transportation; home and work; what you eat; what you use; and what you throw away. In addition to resources for school (and home and work) gardens, Wintergreen offers an extensive guide for “greening a school.” It contains information on water use reduction, energy saving, materials and waste, and outdoor greening. There is also an analysis of the curriculum implications involved when a school goes green. Workshops called Simple Abundance Learning Series, funded by the Ontario

5 tips for buying a vehicle this spring 5 ways to eco-drive trucks or large SUVs. You can find a vehicle with moderate thrills that won’t cost a bundle to fill up or maintain. Think light, think small, think efficient. Your friends will be impressed with your concern for the environment if you choose a smaller, more fuel-efficient vehicle that produces fewer greenhouse gases. Why buy a bigger, more expensive vehicle when a smaller, greener one will do? Do the math. Check the EnerGuide label on the vehicle for the fuel consumption ratings. The label gives you an idea of how many litres; always strive for the lowest fuel consumption rating. For example, a vehicle with a fuel consumption rating of seven litres per 100km would use about half the fuel than a vehicle with a rating of 14 litres per 100km. If you’re looking to purchase a used vehicle, you can still get fuel consumption ratings from websites such as www.vehicles.nrcan.gc.ca, which will also give you estimated annual fuel cost. What a great tool for budgeting. By analyzing your driving lifestyle, choosing the vehicle and power that’s right for you and doing your fuel consumption homework, you’ll be driving in style in no time—with money in the bank and a green mindset.
(NC) Accelerate gently. The harder you accelerate the more fuel you consume. In the city, you can conserve fuel by easing onto the accelerator pedal gently and gradually. Pretend there’s an egg under the gas pedal and an open cup of coffee on the dash. Try to drive without breaking the shell or spilling the coffee and you’ll be good to go. Maintain a steady speed. Be consistent. Unintentional dips in speed and sudden bursts of acceleration take a toll on your tank and your wallet. In fact, tests show that varying your speed up and down between 75 km/h and 85km/h every 18 seconds can increase your fuel use by 20 per cent. Use cruise control whenever possible. Anticipate traffic. Read the road ahead, anticipate road disruptions, monitor the movements of pedestrians and other vehicles and keep a comfortable distance between your vehicle and the one in front of you. Coast to decelerate. Coasting to a stop with your foot off the pedal is

and pickup trucks operate most fuel efficiently when travelling between 50 and 80 km/h. Anything above this optimal speed zone and vehicles consume increasingly more fuel the faster they go. For example, if it takes $10 worth of fuel to drive a certain distance at 100 km/h, it would cost $12 to travel that same distance at 120 km/h. That’s like throwing a toonie out the window every 100 km.

like driving for free. By anticipating traffic slowdowns as early as possible, you can decrease your speed, conserve fuel and save money by simply taking your foot off the accelerator. Today, most vehicles are equipped with fuel-injection systems that automatically shut off the flow of fuel to the engine when the accelerator is fully released. Avoid high speeds. Even if you have a need for speed, slow down. Most cars, vans, SUVs
(NC) Let’s face it. Spring fever isn’t about love at all; it’s about cars. New cars, used cars, car shows, car showrooms, car ads, that new car smell and test drives. For those in the market for a vehicle this spring, there are some things you can do to make the experience interesting, rewarding and satisfying. The first is to become informed. A video produced by the Office of Energy Efficiency at Natural Resources Canada is a great place to start. The video is fun, entertaining and informative plus it describes everything you need to know for making that allimportant first purchase. In a nutshell, it offers five great tips for buying your first car. Analyze your driving needs. Where do you live? What do you do? How will you use your vehicle? How many people and things will you carry along with you? How much will you travel each day? These are just a few of the questions you can ask yourself to help give you a realistic idea of the size and type of vehicle you’ll need. Analyze your choices. Gasoline, diesel, electric or hybrids are your basic power choices nowadays and each has its advantages depending on your driving needs. Avoid temptation. There are some thirsty, fuelguzzling vehicles out there and they’re not all pickup

Lifestyle - “Hi Brian, My wife and I have a small RV based on a 2004 Chevy Express 3500. We just got back from a 13,000 km trip through the US. We ran into a consistent problem that we have also seen here but to a lesser extent. The newest gas pumps are often so fast that they constantly click off no matter how delicately you grip the handle. In one instance, I was only able to get a few cents of gas at a time. Pretty frustrating with a 125 L tank! One gas station maintenance guy told me that the newest pumps put out 6 gpm (gallons per minute) whereas the previous ones were only 1.5 gpm. My impression is that some pumps have a slow start while others go full blast from the beginning. If you want a local reference, Ultramar is where I find the problem the worst. Any suggestions on how to solve this problem? Thanks, Dan Both Canada and the U.S have the same rate regulated by law for fuel dispensers. It’s 37.8 L/minute (10 US gallons). The exceptions are pumps for large commercial vehicles, boats, and aircraft (they can have higher rates). The regulations are in place to limit evaporative emissions. You may have been fueling at pumps made for commercial trucks or at pumps which were incorrectly calibrated. Retailers at busy spots like to move as many vehicles
through their lanes as possible so they may be playing fast and loose with the rules. Another problem might be how the RV body builder adapted the evaporative emission controls that came stock from GM on the van, or the system may have developed a problem due to its age. If they relocated a vent or a vent line improperly it may cause a fuel spit-back. But if the RV is okay at most personal-use vehicle pumps, this probably isn’t the case. “Hi Brian, Can you advise me on the best way to proceed? I am 75 years old and live on a fixed pension. I leased a 2011 Honda Civic and made a substantial down payment to reduce my monthly leasing charges. The lease expires this month. I have just over 34,000 km on it and the car has been regularly serviced. I have a few options when the lease is up and I don’t know which is right for me. A) Return the vehicle to Honda and pay any damage charges (scratches etc.) and walk away. B) Lease a new Honda Fit for another four years (requiring another substantial down payment for low monthly costs). C) Purchase the Civic for around $9,000 plus tax (it will probably need four new tires and maybe a new battery). Some of my friends say to turn the car in and sign a new lease and keep my $9K in the bank.” John I usually can find several pros and cons to most solutions, but this one was pretty one-sided. The current value on a 2011 Honda Civic with 34K km is anywhere from $14K-$15K retail. John’s substantial down payment not only kept his monthly charges low, but drastically reduced the buyout figure ($9,000) on his lease. Walking away from the car means
leaving a lot of money on someone else’s table. While John didn’t mention anything about his health, statistically his age brings a higher risk of losing his driving privileges than the average driver. If he signed a new lease and then lost his license, he would still be legally responsible for all monthly payments and fees. If the worst happened, his estate would be responsible for these costs. Now the same could be said for a consumer loan used to pay out the lease, but on this side of the coin, the vehicle is worth more than the loan so its disposal wouldn’t be much of a burden. A loan for this purchase can be easily amortized to keep the monthly payments within John’s budget. Another issue to consider is the differences in vehicles. While both the Civic and Fit are great cars they are completely different and most would agree that the Civic is more comfortable to drive and has more cabin space and is easier to get in and out of. And at the Civic’s current age and mileage, it still has a lot of life left in it and hopefully so will its owner.

Up in my grill
A guide to culinAry hAppenings And seAsonAl food
Tir Nan Og: when you’re in need of a drink By Kate Kristiansen Columnist
Up In My Grill - St. Patrick’s Day, held each year on March 17, is not just for the Irish; around the world people celebrate with shamrocks, leprechauns, feasts and beer. In Kingston, the hooley (the party) is definitely on at the Tir Nan Og Irish pub, located at 200 Ontario Street, across from Springer Market Square. The pub is located in the Prince George Hotel, which is one the oldest buildings in Kingston. It’s rumored to be haunted. Close your eyes, and while you may not encounter ghosts, you can imagine that you are in the Irish countryside at a local watering hole. There are not one, but two long mahogany bars to swill beer and whisky at. Each seating area is separated into little nooks from bar stools to cozy chairs to wooden barrel seats typical of any good pub. In the summer, the sprawling patio is a great place to dine. On a cold day, I prefer sitting next to the fire, but so does everyone else, so plan ahead. In fact, I wish there were big comfy chairs next to the fire instead of the table for two, but then, I’d probably never leave. Since 1986, the “Nog” as it’s fondly nicknamed, continues to serve up good times for all. Each week they feature live music generally of the Irish flavor, but not always, and it doesn’t have to be St. Patrick’s Day for you to nosh on traditional Irish fair. The menu ranges from the usual grill items to comfort food like boxty,
Guinness crocks and fish and chips. The “blarney chips” are waffle fries topped with tomatoes, green onions and cheese – yum! Mostly known as a drinking hole, the food can be inconsistent in taste, but the service is always warm and friendly. Irish food tends to be seasonal, local and simple in preparation. While potatoes, steak and lamb are often featured, the Irish are also known for fish dishes. I tried the fish and chips the day I was into Tir Nan Og. The flaky, perfectly fried pieces of halibut and a pint of lager made for a superb lunch date. Although, my hubby would argue my best Irish pub experience was on St. Patrick’s Day nineteen years ago, when I met him during the Irish festival in New Zealand. There is an old Irish saying, “In heaven there is no beer. That’s why we drink ours here.” I love all things Irish, and thankfully we have a little slice here in Kingston at the Tir Nan Og. Every Sunday there is live jazz at Montes, the lounge located inside Tir Nan Og and with a valid Queen’s student ID you can enjoy 25 per cent off food items at the “Nog”. Follow them on Facebook or sign up to receive their monthly newsletter to learn of more promotions and featured live music events. In the spirit of the Irish, here is a simple fish recipe to try: Tilapia and Tomato Sauce Makes 4 servings Browning the fish fillets first keeps them golden and crisp when you add them to the
sauce. You can also fry them completely in the skillet for 8 minutes and serve with the sauce spooned over top. Ingredients: 3 tbsp. (50 ml) extra virgin olive oil 1 onion, sliced 3 cloves of garlic, minced 1 sweet red pepper, sliced 1 tsp. (5ml) of dried oregano or 3 sprigs of fresh oregano ½ tsp. (2 ml) ground cumin ½ tsp. (2ml) each, salt and pepper ½ tsp. (2ml) hot pepper sauce 1 punnet of fresh cherry tomatoes 2 tbsp. (25 ml) chopped fresh coriander 2 tbsp. (25 ml) orange juice 1 tsp. (15ml) lime juice 4 tilapia or catfish fillets (any white firm fish will suffice, but these are my favorites)
once, in batches and adding more oil if necessary, for four (4) minutes or until browned. Nestle into hot sauce; simmer for 4 minutes or until fish flakes.
If you have a food biz or restaurant suggestion please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or follow my blog at LadyDinesAlot.com.
Directions: 1. In a shallow Dutch oven, heat 1 tbsp. (15ml) of the oil over medium heat; fry onion, garlic, red pepper, oregano, cumin, half each of the salt and pepper, and the hot pepper sauce, stirring often, for 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender. 2. Add tomatoes; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 20 minutes or until thickened and reduced to about 2 cups (500ml). Stir in coriander, orange juice, and lime juice. 3. Meanwhile, in a non-stick or cast-iron skillet, heat remaining oil over medium high heat. Sprinkle fish with The bar at the Tir Nan Og remaining salt and pepper; fry, turning

Sibling bond leads to success on the court By Mark Kerr Reporter
Gazette Sports--The La Salle senior boys’ basketball team rarely lost this past season, but when the Black Knights
did drop a game, you didn’t want to be around the Graham household. “It can get heated,” said Jesse Graham, 19, who along with his brother Tanner, 17, helped lead La Salle to an Eastern Ontario Secondary School

Athletics Association AA title. They were coached by their mother Karen Graham. “Normally the car rides home (after a loss) aren’t bad. It’s after we let it settle and then talk about it: that’s when it gets heated. We talk about it for hours. We talk about it at the dinner table.” A passion for the game enveloped Jesse and Tanner from a young age. Their earliest basketball memories were formed on the backyard court where they would lower the nets and practice dunking. That gravel court, which was eventually upgraded to a concrete pad, hosted a fair number of intense games of one-on-one and American 21 between Jesse, Tanner and their older brother Dale, who was their assistant coach at La Salle. “There’s been some battles back there,” said Jesse gesturing to the makeshift court. “For American 21, you have one person on offence and two defenders. It gets everybody involved. It’s maybe not the best for developing skills but it was fun.”

Sibling bond leads to success on the court
The brothers started playing Knights of Columbus basketball in grade school. For the most part, they have always played on the same team up through elementary and high school and club basketball, except for a short stint where Tanner played in his age group. Playing together for so long and being brothers offers a certain advantage, according to the younger sibling. “I find you always know where the other one is on the court more than anyone else,” said Tanner, who plays the guard and small forward positions. “We seem to know each other’s tendencies.” The brothers inherited a strong basketball pedigree from their mother, a former member of the Canadian national team. She began coaching at La Salle five years ago when Jesse entered Grade 9. “She knows her stuff. She tells us stories and shares situations she has been in that are unique,” said Jesse, who played forward and centre in high school. “But I would say it’s like having any other coach. It’s not really any different.” Coach Graham led the team to a 35-6 record this season and a berth in the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations (OFSAA) championship. The Black Knights bowed out in the quarter-final, losing to the eventual champions, the Mississauga-based Ascension of Our Photo/John Harman Lord Eagles. The Black Knights advanced
to OFSAA after winning the EOSSAA AA title. The victory came after a disappointing loss to the Frontenac Falcons in the Kingston Area Secondary Schools Athletic Association championship. “It was a really great season,” said Jesse. “We had a great start and then we had a lot of adversity to get through. I loved every minute of it and I am glad I came back to play.” “It was a lot of fun,” Tanner said. “It was a really good group of guys.” The Graham brothers will graduate from La Salle this spring, but they plan on sticking together after high school. They will attend Queen’s University in the fall with the
hope of cracking the Gaels’ lineup. Jesse has been accepted to concurrent education, physical education and general arts, while Tanner has been accepted to engineering and science and hopes to hear about kinesiology in the coming weeks. As close as they are, the brothers never set out to attend the same university. “It wasn’t like we were going to go together no matter what. More and more we wanted to go to the same university,” Tanner said. The Graham brothers know they have to keep improving to make it at the university level. For Jesse, that means getting quicker and improving his shot. Tanner is focused
on working on his speed, quickness and refining his ball-handling skills in order to make it as a guard. “It’s something new. I don’t know what to expect, but I am going to go in with an open mind,” said Jesse. “[What the Queen’s trainers put us through this summer] is going to be tough,” said Tanner. And regardless of the outcome, basketball is sure to be conversation fodder around the Graham dinner table for years to come.

Kidney disease awareness day and month hopes to educate and inform Canadians email@example.com
Gazette News – Did you know that one in 10 Canadians will be affected by or will be diagnosed with kidney disease this year? That number increases with age and 50 per cent of people that are 75 years of age or older have been or will be impacted by kidney disease. These stats come from the Canadian Kidney Foundation and if you weren’t aware of the significance of kidney disease before, they want to make you aware of it now.
The two biggest drivers of kidney disease are diabetes and vascular diseases like high blood pressure. Both of these conditions can be treated and often the treatment for both will also help prevent kidney disease. The hardest part is making people aware of the problems. “In terms of preventative measures, the biggest issue is diet,” added Hill. “It is about taking control of your life and focusing on preventing this disease. Eating more fruits and vegetables and reducing sodium are things that should be done already, but if they aren’t then making that change can

“The month of March is Kidney Awareness Month and the idea is just to make Canadians more aware of kidney disease and the risk factors associated with it,” explained Bruce Hill, Manager of the Ottawa Kidney Foundation office. “We also held World Kidney Day on March 13 and on that day, basically any organization that is associated with kidney disease tries to go out on a limb to raise more awareness. We really want Canadians to think about the risk factors associated with kidney disease and what they can do to minimize those risks.”

really help. Those at risk should also be reducing their alcohol intake and of course not smoking, all of the things that go along with a healthy lifestyle already. Another big driver for kidney disease is obesity and that isn’t surprising because those people are also more likely to develop diabetes at some point in their lifetime.” The Kidney Foundation runs multiple awareness campaigns throughout the month of March and throughout the year to raise awareness. They focus on sharing information at malls, on the radio and often times they visit community centres to do preventative screenings. “We go into community centres and bring nurses and technicians and we do blood work and blood pressure assessments and really just test those that are interested. We do a kind of screening for kidney disease and then we inform people if they are at risk. It is really simple to do, but people need to be aware of it.” There are other factors that can cause kidney disease too, including a family history of kidney stones, and some research shows that if you had strep throat as a child you may also be at risk. Hill encourages people to keep a watchful eye on their kidney function and simply enquire with their doctor.
“Why take chances? When you get older and you go in for a physical it is just another box that needs to be checked on blood work and it is simple to add that to the list each year.” Those that do experience kidney failure have two options – dialysis or transplantation. Neither option is a cure for the disease and Hill emphasizes that neither option is particularly convenient either. “Dialysis is extremely inconvenient with treatments being three or four days a week for four hour sessions for the rest of your life. Even with transplants, they can last anywhere from two years to 25 years, but there is no guarantee. It is a really tough disease to deal with and dialysis makes it really hard to travel and live a normal life. It really consumes your entire life.” Spreading the word about kidney disease is really the most important part, added Hill. The Kidney Foundation is always looking for volunteers to help at screening events or participate in awareness fairs. “We really just need help educating people about kidney disease and the more volunteers we have the farther we can reach.” For more information about kidney disease and what you can do to help raise awareness go to www.kidney.ca/risk
