Full slate of star gazing events planned for NF facility By Craig Bakay Reporter

Gazette News — Look up, look way up, look up into the night skies of North Frontenac this summer. The North Frontenac Star Gazing Pad just south of Plevna is all but completed now and there is a full slate of special dates planned for this summer. “There is some signage yet to be done, and some information stations but basically, we’re ready to go,” said Corey Klatt, North Frontenac community development officer. “We have a number of special dates that were suggested by the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada and chosen

by Coun. Betty Hunter and the economic development committee but you can go to the pad whenever you want and it’s free.” The area of North Frontenac where the pad was constructed is known as the “Dark Peninsula” and “offers the best view of the night sky and Milky Way in Southern Canada and northern U.S.,” he said. “I’m not an expert but these events are a nice opportunity to bring people to the area and let them in on the wonders of the night sky.” Guy Nason, a RASC member who has a cottage in the area and was instrumental in getting the viewing pad developed, was also instrumental in arranging the event dates for this year.

He said they range from an interesting opportunity to Saturn, Mars and the Moon in a straight line (Aug. 3 at 8:30 p.m.) to just a ‘cool’ date to be looking up at the night sky (June 21 at 9 p.m., the Northern Summer Solstice). “The good news about the solstice is that it’s a good talking point,” Nason said. “The bad news is, it’s the shortest night of the year.” The first event is May 10, beginning at 8:30 p.m., when Frank Dempsey, RASC member and Ojiway elder from the Dokis First Nation (near French River) will give a talk on the Aboriginal Sky. If the weather is good, it will take the form of a guided tour and if not, there will be a slide presentation under a tent.

There are events planned each month through Oct. 18, when Uranus will be visible to the unaided eye. One event Nason is looking forward to is July 5 at 9 p.m. when the dwarf planet Ceres and the asteroid Vesta will be very close together and nicely viewable with binoculars. In fact, Nason is big on viewing the night sky with binoculars. “The thing I’m hoping for most is clear sky,” he said. “But if I could tell people one thing, it would be to bring their binoculars. “Binoculars are the ‘forgotten aid’ of astronomy and they’re what got me hooked on looking at the night sky, sitting in my backyard.” He said many people feel

you need a fancy telescope to properly view the night sky, and during the events, members of the NASC will certainly be present with their gear to give people a look. But Nason said there are a number of advantages to binoculars that are often overlooked. “First of all, you don’t need fancy binoculars,” he said. “Your regular ones will do just fine. “Binoculars have a wider field of view than telescopes, everything is the right way up and essentially, you just point them where you want to look.” For more information, you can visit www.northfrontenac. com/recreation or call Klatt at 613-479-2231, ext. 233.

Lost Highway documentary lost on the residents of Arden Reporter

Gazette News — You know those movie premieres where everyone stands and applauds as the closing credits start to roll? This wasn’t one of those. There was much anticipation as the Arden Legion welcomed area residents last week for a free-will offering spaghetti dinner before the screening of TVO’s The Lost Highway, a film shot over the course of three years by Neil Graham and Derreck Roemer. However, that anticipation turned to disbelief and disappointment bordering on outrage in some cases as the film, however accurate in what it did show, failed to present much of the optimism that many were hoping for. Perhaps the most vocal was Coun. Tom Dewey, who represents the area and Kennebec District 1. “This doesn’t depict the area,” Dewey said. “I think this is a story about individuals that have problems (and) I think it went off track and kind of lost the theme of The Lost Highway. “I don’t know if this is fair, but there was a lot of personal stuff in there, more like an afternoon soap opera, and it undermined all the good work the people here have done trying to bring the Arden community back.” “I agree 100 per cent,” said Jim Gutowski. “Perhaps they should re-visit the subject showing all the things people have cleaned up.” “We have tried to fix a lot of things,” said Dewey. “We’ve put a lot of money into the streets and parks.” Legion Past President Dave Moore, who

had a small speaking role in the movie, wasn’t quite as harsh, but still wasn’t too impressed. “It was interesting if you wanted to know about Howard (Gibbs),” he said. “But to me, it was supposed to be about the highway. “I know they interviewed a lot more people that weren’t in the film so it was kind of disappointing.” Legion Vice-President Don Scott agreed. “I watched the trailers a couple of times and this was not what I expected,” he said. “There’s a lot more highway there than they showed.” Others were more philosophical. For instance, Susan Frasier and her husband Mark Rowe run a B & B in Denbigh and made the trip down to Arden to watch the movie with the community. They could relate to some of the issues Dave Daski and his wife Linda Tremblay faced. “It was really sad,” Frasier said. “It was really interesting to watch them start up but I could really relate to the having lots of guests but not being able to pay the bills part. “It’s a tough way to make a living, which is why we do it more as a fun thing.” Mayor Janet Gutowski was also clearly disappointed but tried to be diplomatic. “It’s not truly a portrayal of the community,” she said. “They presented isolated incidents The Arden Legion hosted a spaghetti and movie night for the television premiere of The that showed more of the human drama and Lost Highway. Photo/Craig Bakay they certainly haven’t presented a good crosssection of the area. “However, kudos to Sarah Hale, who is a very balanced and brilliant woman who came across very well.” But perhaps the comment that summed up the mood of the room best came from Dewey’s wife, Shirley. “It’s a documentary on sadness,” she said.

NFLT latest offerings turn temporary homelessness into an opportunity By Craig Bakay Reporter

Gazette News — It’s been said that necessity is the mother of invention, and the same could be said for the North Frontenac Little Theatre’s most recent offerings, My Narrator and The Death of Me, featured in a dinner theatre format at The Crossing Pub and two shows at Oso Hall last week in Sharbot Lake. You see, the NFLT had become quite used to staging their productions at Sharbot Lake High School. But with the demolition of the school in favour of the new Granite Ridge Education Centre, there was no place to rehearse and build sets, do lighting tests, etc. (There is a spot for NFLT in the new building but it just couldn’t be ready in time for this production.) So for director Brian Robertson, this production was something of a challenge on a number of levels. “Yes, we were ‘uprooted,’” he said. “And that was very much a factor in what we could stage this time around. “We don’t have the funds to rent Oso Hall for the two-month rehearsal

period — just this week we’re experiencing the stage and we sort of had to just whip up a set.” What this meant was that they were very limited in their choice of material. “We decided to go with two oneact plays by Norm Foster, who is kind of Canada’s Neil Simon,” Robertson said. “Foster’s stuff features very little action — it thrives on dialogue. “It’s a bit of a challenge, but doable.” Perhaps the challenge for Robertson himself was more than for much of the rest of the cast and production team. “My background really is in children’s and classic theatre and this is a totally different slant,” he said. “With larger productions (such as Tom Sawyer that Robertson also directed), you have sets, costuming, and often music that amplifies and embellishes the story, leading to action on stage. “With these plays, everything depends on the presentation and power of the words.” But, luckily, he said, Foster excels at this.

“Foster approaches serious scenarios tempered with lightness and humour,” he said. “Everyone can relate to something in his plays, which offer insight into everyday life. “People can see themselves and the ins and outs of life in them.” This production also allowed NFLT to offer something it really

hasn’t been able to do as much of as they’d like — dinner theatre. “The Sharbot Lake population has always seemed to enjoy the dinner theatre when we’ve been able to offer it,” he said. “When we started thinking about options, we thought maybe we should try The Crossing and when we approached Frank and

Sandra, they were very helpful and enthusiastic. “They had the venue and we came up with the production.” My Narrator starred Kathy Bateman, Noel Bateman and Andrea Dickinson. The Death of Me starred Craig Godfrey, Barb Matson, Ellie Steele and John Pariselli.

Sharbot Lake seniors do a little walking in the rain for Earth Day Reporter

Gazette News — What do Sharbot Lake seniors do when the rain is pouring down on a spring day in April? They get out their poles and go for a walk, that’s what. More than 50 seniors and a few younger folks gathered at the Sharbot Lake Medical Centre last week to celebrate Earth Day with a ‘Spring Fling’ of fitness activities including a nature walk, Zumba class with Time White, a pot-luck lunch and even a baby pool. The rain was intense up until around 10:30 a.m. but when the first group set out for a walk, there was only a mist rising up from the lake. “Mother Nature’s clearing up,” said occupational therapist Charlene Feakins, who leads the regular Tuesday class. “We have 34 signed up for Zumba (a dancercize sort of fitness workout) but had to run two sessions because we really can only accommodate 17 per session.” So, while one group Zumba’d, the others grabbed their poles and went for a walk. And that gave Feakins cause to smile. “We’re really excited,” she said. “Three dozen seniors have bought the walking poles which we bought at cost and weren’t sure if they’d be accepted. “But they really have and I think it’s because of the extra stability and balance they give you (and) they

encourage upper body movement and increased heart rate which is good for fitness.” This was the final ‘winter’ fitness session at the Medical Centre for this year and as such featured things like raffle prizes donated by the Treasure Trunk and DVDs of the Zumba classes made by Edie Cairns for people to use at home, as well as a baby pool to raise funds for exercise bands. “I’m pregnant, so we organized a pool for whether it’s a boy or girl,” said Feakins. This may have been the end of the winter sessions, but Feakins and her Thursday counterpart, occupational therapist Stephanie Lackey are planning another fourweek session from the first Tuesday to the last Thursday in May. “We’re calling it Spring Fitbit,” she said. “And it’s designed to get people prepared for summer. “For example, if you live on a lake in the summer, we have an aquafit program to teach you and a lot of stretching exercises that will armour people with exercises they can do safely at home.” And while they may be taking a break for the summer, the exercise team isn’t done yet. “We hope to have a big kickoff when we come back in the fall,” Feakins said. “Stay tuned.” For more information about fitness programs for seniors and others, as well as other programs, call the Medical Centre at 613-2792100.

For that reason she would benefit from a quiet home where there is not a lot of action or change. Blind cats are very good at adapting to new environments, but take time, patience, and the understanding. She wants a nice, quiet home again where she can live out the rest of her days happily lounging in a loving lap.

Twiz the Dog

Twiz came to the shelter as a stray at the end of March. He’s been neutered, fully vaccinated and is now patiently waiting for his perfect people. He loves to explore, and would like to find a hiking buddy. Twiz will need a securely fenced in yard to keep him safe when he’s not on a leash. He would be a good fit for a first time owner or a family with children over 12 years.

Enchanté

Enchanting and fascinating people….and their world

Mark Bergin

A bright darkness By Mark Bergin Correspondent

In the James Greatrex tunnel of darkness, his own hopefulness and intelligence provide the light. On Google+ he’s listed as an “experimental writer, director, editor and filmmaker.” LinkedIn says he’s a “director of filmy arty stuff.” This Canadian filmmaker likes the edgy side of life. One of his previous film companies was called sodarkfilms. “Pretty much most of the stuff I do is still on the dark side,” he said. “There’s a lot of experimental stuff.” His current production company is ASIF. “It’s more or less the idea that if you act as if you are going to do something, it will happen,” he said. Born in Prince Edward County, Greatrex studied screenwriting at Algonquin College in Ottawa. He followed that with training in animation at the Ottawa School of Art. After a filmmaking stint in Toronto, he ended up in Kingston. “I’ve been drawn back here many times,” he said. “I appreciate the arts community.” Much of his education has been trial by fire. He taught himself film

editing and then started getting jobs in the field. He said he still hopes to get involved in the film degree program at Queen’s University. “There are certain courses I’ve been planning to take for years,” he said. He met with someone from the film department who thought he already had a degree. The first work I saw by James Greatrex was his short piece documenting the choreography Helana Marks of the Kingston School of Dance created with the Rosas danst Rosas project. I was impressed that the film seemed in tune with the dance and there had been no attempt to try to make the dance fit a film mindset. His current passion is a film project called Preservation, which he’s working on with Paul Bellini, famed writer from The Kids in the Hall and This Hour Has 22 Minutes. Greatrex was listening to a podcast co-hosted by Paul Bellini and Scott Thompson (also of Kids in the Hall). They were talking about a film, Rain. Greatrex ended up becoming involved in the film. “It was very experimental,” he said. “Because of our work together on Rain, we decided to work on this new film.” If you know the work of Paul

Bellini, you’ll understand how he and Greatrex hooked up on creative projects. Bellini notes his influences as people like Charlie Chaplin, Andy Warhol, Salvador Dali, Alfred Hitchcock and Lou Reed. And he notes the likes of Brian Eno and Iggy Pop as musical influences. Quirky. Add his admiration for the likes of Dean Martin, Chris Rock, Sandra Bernhard and Beatrice Arthur and you see the comic show its face. Throw James Greatrex into the mixture and dark, experimental, yet possibly funny material raises its head. “There was an immediate connection [with Bellini],” said Greatrex. In the current joint project, Preservation, there’s a grandmotherly type. She’s isolated, living through a bleak Canadian winter. Bellini will play his first dramatic role in the film. “I’m still steering toward the gothic in the film,” said Greatrex. “Paul [Bellini] plays the Russian babushka in her 80s in preConfed Canada. The family dies of starvation. Preservation pays homage to the film First Winter from the early 1980s. It was about Canadian filmmaker James Greatrex has made Kingston his home Irish immigrants struggling with for the past few years. When not involved in making documentaries, the same kind of thing during their Greatrex tends toward moody and gothic storylines. first winter in Canada.” Continued on page 9

editorial

Boxes are the great illusion of form following function Craig Bakay Reporter

editorial@theheritageemc.ca

Gazette Column — Of all the things we humans have managed to invent, concoct and/or come up with, arguably the most deceptive is the simple box. On the surface, a box would seem to be one of the more elegant human creations. A standard cube, it is simplicity at its finest. This simplicity makes them easy to make, and mass produce, in a variety of materials for a seeming variety of uses. However, regardless of its contents, a box really only has one use. Simply put, boxes are made to put stuff in. And at this job, they excel. However, excluding the commercial use of being a convenient method for transporting goods (taken magnificently to extremes in cargo containers for ships, trains and trucks), the common box is actually a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

How can this be, you ask? Well, while it is true that you can design a box to hold almost anything (you can put a moose in one if you make it big enough), take a look around your house. What’s in the boxes you have (and everybody has boxes, even if they don’t think of them as such). The simple fact of the matter is that the vast majority of boxes hold a variety of items, most of which we will never use again (if we ever did use them in the first place). And here we see the hidden danger of these things. We put stuff in boxes, close the lid and kid ourselves into thinking we’ve actually accomplished something. Once full of stuff, the boxes are often stacked and forgotten for the most part. We deceive ourselves into thinking we’ve achieved some measure of ‘organization’ but in reality all we’ve done is traded one problem for another. Instead of having a bunch of stuff lying around loose, all that stuff is now in boxes, boxes which may or may not have some semblance of inner organization. There are those who profess

to have the skills to make stacks of boxes organized and with that presumably some useful function. But really, all we’re doing is just hiding stuff away — an out-of-sight, out-of-mind sort of thing. We’re human. We like to think we’ve accomplished something but really, all these boxes will someday come home to roost. Does anybody out there actually have a box whose contents they could name? Even if we write the supposed contents on the outside, chances are what’s actually in there will deviate from the written manifesto, often deviating wildly. We all find this out when we go looking for something we had put in a box, only to find that somehow the box we thought said item should be in is woefully mislabeled. Even specialty boxes, such as the tool box or tackle box is rarely 100 per cent. Despite numerous attempts to organize the definitive tool box, the tool I need at any one given time doesn’t seem to be in there. Oh well, at least there’s a high probability it will be in a another box somewhere.

recovery he caught the same cold. I guess we can be thankful that we could actually take care of each other and we weren’t suffering together but that two-week period was truly terrible. Immediately following our recoveries we suffered a death in the family. My husband’s grandfather passed away quite abruptly and the entire family gathered here in Kingston to grieve their loss. Nothing prepares you for a death and in most cases nothing can be done to lessen the blow and that was certainly the case here. After that, things went from bad to worse. On our way home from visiting with family after the death of Korey’s grandfather, we hit a deer. We were driving on a road we drive on everyday and a road that we often see deer around and one came out of nowhere. Korey was driving and had zero reaction time. The deer flew across the hood of our car and landed in the ditch and ran away. Luckily neither of us was hurt, but the same couldn’t be said for our car. Thank goodness for insurance. After all of this, I was sure that things couldn’t possibly get any Vice President & Regional Publisher Mikeworse, Mount but I was wrong. On Easter Sunday, a mmount@perfprint.ca

dear friend of Korey’s family and an aunt/grandmother figure to him passed on. It was exactly two weeks after his grandfather and just as sudden. Death is never easy, but when you experience more than one in a month it can be even more difficult. On top of all this, my parents have now officially moved out of their house, the house I grew up in. We helped them finish the move last weekend and that experience was both mentally and physically exhausting. It’s hard to believe that I will never visit that home again. I am going to miss so many things about it and it’s hard to imagine the new house ever having the same feeling. Needless to say, I am certainly not sad to see the month of April go. It has been a really rough month both mentally and physically and I can only hope that nothing else happens. I know that you can’t control death and that change in life is inevitable, but does all of it have to happen at once?

Kanata Kourier-Standard

Gazette Column — Sometimes life is pretty great and everything seems to be going your way, but other times it seems like there is just a chain reaction of bad things that happen for no reason at all and nothing can stop them. The latter is what I experienced during the month of April. Normally I can’t really complain about my life too much. I have a great job, a great husband, a great cat and a pretty great family and circle of friends, but for some reason April was truly terrible. It all started with a terrible cold. I don’t get sick very often, usually only experiencing two to three colds a year, but when I do it hits me really hard. I know that colds generally come with a change in seasons and I usually prepare myself for that but this cold caught me by surprise and took me out for almost an entire week. I have a very caring husband who took care of me, but unfortunately, soon after my

In Our Opinion

Elections are coming – get engaged early Gazette Editorial - On Monday, Oct. 27, communities across our region will head to the polls to elect new municipal government representatives. We encourage our readers to become engaged in the election process. Find out what the candidates stand for and maybe even consider running yourself if you have opinions you’d like heard and/or issues that are particularly close to your heart. We also want to remind you that it’s not just mayors and council members who will be elected this fall – so too will school board trustees. Over the last four years, the Limestone District School Board (LDSB), which serves all of the public schools in our region, has had to make a number of difficult decisions and many citizens have been very passionate and vocal in their disapproval of what the board has done. In Sharbot Lake, many community members felt cut off from the naming process of the Granite Ridge Education Centre, believing that the new amalgamated school should include the name “Sharbot� as a tribute to the community’s heritage. They made their opinion heard in letters and a delegation to the board but were ultimately unsuccessful in their mission. In Kingston, the Central PARC process was similarly a very emotional ordeal as many fought passionately to keep KCVI and QECVI open. Despite their best efforts, the LDSB still voted to close both high schools and build a new one at a to-be-determined location. In March, it was confirmed that the province will provide funding for the new building, sealing the fate of the two urban schools. Yet some very important decisions remain to be made, perhaps most notably where exactly this new school will be built. Kingston City Council has already told the LDSB that their first choice, the grounds of the Memorial Centre, is not an option; however, as an agent of the province the board theoretically has the power to override this decision and has given no indication that they intend to honour the City’s wishes. We remind our readers that decisions such as this one could have a dramatic impact on the future of our city. Loss of the Memorial Centre grounds would negatively affect cultural events like the Fall Fair and the Memorial Centre Farmers’ Market, in addition to depriving locals of a much-needed green space. We hope that the past four years have served as a wakeup call, of sorts, giving citizens an idea of just how much power trustees have. It is important that anyone who cares about the Memorial Centre or any issue that affects the future of our children’s education and/or the city at large become engaged in electing their area’s school board trustee and know what each candidate stands for. Educate yourself early on in the process and if you don’t like what you see, try throwing your name into the hat. You never know what kind of impact you can make until you try.

He’s hoping to make the film on a $40k to $50k budget, and he’d like to shoot it locally and in Prince Edward County, where he hopes to use the old air base. “I would like to bring that money into the Kingston community,” he said. “It sounds dark, but it’s actually a hopeful story. There’s old world religion, paganism, isolationism and Canadian wilderness experience. I want to play with that a bit. I like to think that I have innovative and interesting ideas that steer toward the dark side, yet are very positive and hopeful, although that isn’t always apparent in my work.” Greatrex also helps run a Wednesday night film meetup at the Pilot House. He said it gets started after 10 p.m. and might include things like workshopping scripts and looking at different grants coming up at the federal, provincial and municipal levels. “It’s open to anyone,” he said. “It’s very casual. Any regular Pilot House customers are also welcome to come in and hang out.” Greatrex has been in Kingston for the past four years. A couple of years ago he married Laura, a teacher. Before coming to Kingston, he’d worked with David Chernushenko on the feature documentary, Powerful: Energy for Everyone. “It was shot internationally and deals with energy autonomy,” he said. “It looks at combining renewable energies and the possibility of phasing out fossil and nuclear fuels. Ultimately, the film was an inspiring look at showing how changes can lead to a new energy system. It was done on a super low budget, about $250,000. I got to meet so many interesting people and interviewed about 70 people around the world.” A project that he hopes to shoot this summer is about murderers. “It’s basically about our infatuation with the antihero,” he said. He rhymed off shows like Dexter and Breaking Bad to make his point. “It’s a didactic examination of things like that,” he said. “The lead will be played by Rory Eccles. His character treats everybody he meets like complete garbage. The film doesn’t glorify him. At the end of the film, he commits suicide. I hope people walk away devastated and upset. They’re entertained by this person but then something terrible happens.”

Greatrex said he never wants to make something that’s just entertaining. “But I don’t want to be teaching lessons or preaching either,” he said. “It’s a fine line to walk.” Greatrex likes creating moods and tones. Although he values fiction and fantasy, he knows that documentaries offer the greatest income potential. “Sometimes arts organizations and granting bodies like the moody and dark stuff,” he said. “That inspires conversation. I guess I’m never going to make a blockbuster.” I wouldn’t bet or make any guesses. Who would have thought that Tarantino would make it big. And I’m not comparing Tarantino to Greatrex. Quentin revels in the gratuitous; James tends toward intelligence. Greatrex thinks the Kingston Canadian Film Festival is on the right track. “The film fest of so supportive of local talent,” he said. Greatrex attended on a V.I.P. pass this year. “I went to all the events,” he said. “It was so incredible to talk to people like [Canadian actor and filmmaker] Don McKeller, my film hero. There were always things I had wanted to ask him.” Greatrex sets his standards high and it bothers him when flawed work gets praised. “I’d really love to make a Canadian feature in Canada,” he said. “I like criticism and people telling me when things could be better. I’m working my ass off writing scripts. I want them to be as polished as possible. I don’t want them to be accepted simply because they are Canadian. I want them to be successful because they’re good.” His current work includes finishing a music video for Juno nominee Gary Rasberry and working on another experimental piece with dancer/ choreographer Helana Marks. “I wrote this gothic Kraftwerk-type music for it,” said Greatrex. “Helana will do the dance work in front of a green screen.” There are couple of other projects in the works that involve such things as guns, child soldiers, and senior citizens living a feral and hostile life after being messed up with a rabies-like virus. You know, the usual light-hearted stuff to which James Greatrex gravitates. Mark Bergin on Twitter @ markaidanbergin.

New arts program has parents and kids making beautiful “Music Together” By Hollie Pratt-Campbell hpratt-campbell@perfprint.ca

MF 100% Acrylic Proline

R0012575552

Gazette Editorial — All children are born with the potential to learn the language of music. That’s the philosophy behind Music Together, an international musical education program for children aged zero to five years old. Music Together was recommended to me by Greg Tilson, member of the popular local band The Gertrudes and artistic director of the Kingston Arts Council. Greg and his nine month old son, George, have been attending classes since they started in Kingston last October. Figuring Greg is probably a pretty good authority when it comes to music classes, I decided to try one out with my two year old daughter,Summer. We arrived at Chalmers United Church on Barrie Street and headed up to a very pretty turret room with stained glass windows, where the class was to be held. Immediately, Summer made a beeline for a group of kid-sized bongo drums, which were arranged in a circle on the floor, and began to build a tower with them. “No Summer, put those back please,” I told her, explaining that the drums were for keeping a beat, not building towers. But music teacher Christina Foster was more than happy to see Summer doing what she wished with the instruments. “It’s very much a non-performance-based, informal setting,” she explained. “It’s really learning to play with music, not to play it. That way they might decide that they want to dance, or they might decide that they want to play an instrument, or they might want to sing or they

might want to just sit back and process it and on a stereo and actively and joyfully sing and up with those surroundings, and teaching was experience it.” dance and bond with your children.” also something that I always wanted to do, I The rules of Music Together are simple: Later, Christina explained to me that she just didn’t know in what capacity. So it took parents (or other whatever parental figures are became a certified Music Together instructor me a while to get here, but when I found this attending the class with the little ones) sing while she was living in Toronto. program, just by the description of it I thought, songs, dance and play instruments together; “I’ve [played music] since I was three years ‘these are all the things I could do and that I children are free to join in, but not forced to; if old and I started to sing at the age of nine,” she love.’” the wish to run over to the window and gaze in said. “My parents were very musical so I grew Continued on page 11 awe at the colourful stained glass (as Summer did several times), that’s okay. Parents keep up the enthusiastic participation and eventually the fun becomes too much for any distracted little children to resist. “It’s so important for the adults to be participating with them,” Christina said. “That’s what children want to see. They want to see the people that they love the most being silly and having fun and enjoying themselves. It creates a bond between them and their favourite grownups.” Luckily, my pride went out the window some time ago, so the fact that I can’t sing, play music or dance very well didn’t stop me from having a genuinely good time at Music Together. I banged on tambourines, rattled egg shakers, danced to the Traveling Wilburys and sang along to songs I didn’t know the lyrics to. I was pleasantly surprised that Summer was more than happy to participate in the vast majority of activities. She can be a bit of a free spirit when it comes to these things, but something about the music seemed to draw her in - or perhaps it was the warmth and charisma of Christina Foster, who has a natural ease with small children. “It doesn’t matter if the parent can sing in tune Music Together – Summer and George explore their musical sides with Greg Tilson and or not,” she noted to me. “What is important is Christina Foster.

Life Saved on MS Wolfe New arts program has Islander III, the Island’s parents and kids making beautiful “Music Together” Lifeline Correspondent

Gazette News — An early morning gathering was held at Kingston’s Wolfe Island Ferry Terminal recently bringing together Ministry of Transportation staff, Marine division employees, engineers, captains, mates, and crews, to acknowledge on the one hand the good work of those who worked so hard to keep the ferry service operational throughout a very difficult winter. And, on the other, to honour a crew of the Ferry Wolfe Islander III who utilized their emergency skills and saved the life of a Wolfe Islander. The team honoured was: Captain Robert Woodman and crew members: Aaron Koloseike, Arthur Emtage, Tony Hamilton, Brandon Greenwood, Reg Eves, and Kendall Niles. It was a private internal MTO event. But as every one knows the Wolfe Island Ferry and everything about her, is that she is Wolfe Island’s Life Line, our bridge, our only route off the island and our route home again. We trust our lives to the ship and its crews . And this crew is credited with saving the life of Gus Brown , an islander who was on his way home, accompanied by family members following a visit to his wife Darlene who was in hospital at the time, when his heart stopped. It is important to note here that MTO’s Eastern Ontario Region, recognized the importance of AED’s (automated external defibrillators) and initiated their installation on their ferries. The portable devices can check heart rhythm, and in the event of a sudden cardiac arrest, (SCA), where the heart suddenly stops beating, They are used to try and restore a normal heart rhythm by sending an electric shock to the heart. Minutes count in the event of a SCA, causing death if not treated quickly. And In order to guarantee that someone “trained in how to use an AED” is on the ferry at all times, Ferry Supervisor Kevin O’Shea insisted that ALL crew members learn how to use the device and take the training course. And it was a team effort where everything fell into place from the beginning that saved Gus who apparently suffered an SCA in his car. CPR was initiated by a family member. 911/ EMS services were alerted to the situation and Captain Woodman immediately turned back to Kingston. At the same time crew members moved quickly to bring out the ferry’s AED. Once hooked up, the AED assessed Gus’s condition and (2) electric shocks were administered and thankfully his heart rhythm was restored. Brown was transported to hospital in the waiting ambulance with a paramedic team ready to board the ferry as it arrived. It was like clock work, I’m told. Following a stay in hospital Gus and his wife Darlene are now home. Their family continues to “express deep gratitude for the quick and positive response of the ferry crew of the Wolfe Islander.” Islanders too thank MTO and the crew of the Wolfe Islander … for saving a Life! 2. Ice Storm Clean Up : Islanders living by or near township roads on Howe, Simcoe and Wolfe Islands are taking full advantage of the Frontenac Islands Township’s brush clean up and chipping service. The township faced significant damage due to the December ice storm and hopes to have the clean up completed before roadside grass cutting begins. Residents are expected to place their brush, cut and piled appropriately for one person to handle for pick up at township road shoulders by township trucks. And residents have been doing just that. It is amazing pile after pile of neatly arranged

brush line the many public roads including #95 and #96. And each day as the township’s chipper is put to use the mountain of chipped wood rises to new heights, and is made available for residential use. Thanks… The only complaint I’ve heard about the ‘welcomed cleanup’ comes from residents living on private roads who asked to take their brush to the nearest public roadside for pick up. 3. Pitch In 2014- Howe Island is holding a very well organized Pitch In Day cleaning up island roadsides with gloves and bags provided. The event is sponsored by the township and the Howe Island Ratepayers Association. There was no formal set up for Pitch In week on Wolfe Island but Islanders much to their credit continue cleaning up sections of road they have done in the past, when they have the time. Take note that there are bags available for this purpose at the Township Roads Department building on Road #96 Around Town:*Horne’s Ferry is scheduled to begin service May 1st. * Slowly but surely Marysville is getting ready for the Tourist Season.

After holding classes in Toronto for one year, Christina had a strong urge introduce the program to her hometown of Kingston. “I just knew I had to do this at home,” she said. “I wanted to take this to my community and to the families that I know and love and want to see grow up.” Christina explained that the benefits of Music Together are numerous and diverse, including emotional development, physical development/coordination, creativity, confidence building, social development, language development and cognitive development. “It’s kind of endless,’ she noted. “It’s not just music skills, it’s life skills.” Greg said that he has

witnessed the benefits even in nine-month-old George, who has already graduated from two semesters of Music Together. “He’s learned how to shake things,” he laughs. “But sometimes he’ll just sit there and absorb things and then we’ll see what he has learned at home. A certain movement or something that comes out later.” While George already comes from a very musical household - Greg’s wife, Annie Clifford, is also a member of The Gertrudes Greg says that there are many benefits to learning music in a more formal setting. “It’s more for the routine and structure of it, and he’s sharing music with other kids. He also just loves it. He’s so happy when we come to these classes - I

Europe by rail provides countless travel options By Jeff Maguire Correspondent

Gazette Lifestyle – After the winter we have had (we were still having it when I wrote this column) it is not surprising summer and vacations are on the minds of so many readers. In the wake of my recent column on Ireland I received numerous emails from people who A.) Outlined their travel experiences on the Emerald Isle or B.) Offered suggestions on places to visit in Ireland. Thank you for the feedback everyone, it is always great to hear from newspaper readers. Due to my email volume I don’t get a chance to answer every message. But I do want to emphasize how much I appreciate all of your comments and suggestions on every subject I write about. A Carleton Place friend hailed me on the street one day recently while I was out for my afternoon walk.

“I’m not happy with you,” she said. “What have I done this time?” I replied. “You’re going to Ireland,” she said, flashing a wide grin. She was pulling my leg of course. But she still made it clear she is jealous! “I don’t blame you,” I added. “Isn’t it a wonderful country?” “You had better go to Wicklow,” she offered. I assured her the picturesque county, south of Dublin, is on our itinerary this summer. Last week I met another friend downtown. After exchanging pleasantries he informed me he was leaving for Banff by train the next day. He makes an annual pilgrimage by rail to Alberta and the Banff Springs Hotel where, as a student, he worked for the summer in the hotel kitchens. He traveled by rail then too. And he enjoyed the experience so much he now feels his year is incomplete if he doesn’t repeat that journey.

There’s

I know exactly how he feels. Some travel and life experiences are so wonderful they cry out to be repeated as often as time and money will allow. As I continued my walk I felt this column coming on. For me there is no better way to clear my head and think about what lies ahead than when I am walking. Thinking about our planned Ireland trip and hearing about my friend’s rail excursion to Banff prompts me to extoll the virtues of train travel in Europe. I’ve mentioned my love of rail travel in past columns and features in this newspaper. Like my local friend, I never tire of rail excursions. Not only is it a fast, efficient way to get from point A to point B, it is also a great way to see our continent and any other country you choose to visit. There are far too few rail options in Canada and the United States I am sad to report. Unfortunately we are so tied to motor vehicles in North America that passenger train service is sporadic at best and non-existent in many places. Terrible decision Locally it was so incredibly sad to see the last railway line through our community torn up last summer. It marked the end of an era, but it also means train service is unlikely to be restored here – ever! It would be cost prohibitive to even consider that kind of infrastructure again. So, very short sighted decision-making and we will all pay a price for it! In Europe it’s a totally different story. Great Britain for example continues to be utterly dependent on railways. Fewer people own motor vehicles there because trains and buses are so frequent and dependable in most communities. The government there encourages citizens to use

mass transit and the railways are alive and well. Newer, better trains are being added all the time and lines are continually upgraded in an effort to provide faster, more efficient service. Clearly the thinking is the exact opposite of what governments here are considering when it comes to mass transit. Outside of our biggest centres, passenger rail service and/or light rail is not an option for many Canadians including communities across the coverage area of this newspaper. On our first private visit to the United Kingdom in the mid-1990s my wife Kathleen and I began a love affair with train travel which continues to blossom. I clearly remember our first trips in England. We took the high-speed service from King’s Cross Station in London north to York which, interestingly, happens to be home to Britain’s National Railway Museum (it is well worth a visit too). We were there in just over two hours. By road the same trip would have taken more than twice that long. The next day we decided to visit the Yorkshire seaside community of Scarborough which, among many attractions, has interesting castle ruins perched high atop a cliff overlooking the North Sea. On a clear day the views up and down the coast are unlimited. You can see for 30 miles (nearly 50 kilometres). Beneath the castle walls and overlooking the sea is the grave of novelist Anne Brontë, one of the famed Brontë sisters. She died young (age 29) and is interred in St. Mary’s churchyard. We made the short journey to and from Scarborough on a so-called “Sprinter” a two-car train designed for short haul trips. It was a slower and bumpy ride. But I can still remember the lovely, green Yorkshire countryside we passed through. In places our train scared sheep who were grazing near

the tracks. They bolted across the fields, tails high in the air. Since that time we have visited the UK many times and we have traveled the length and breadth of England and Scotland on the train. Flying is faster of course, but you see very little from the air. The train quite literally opens a window to the country you are passing through. There is so much more to see. Apart from being stranded at Stansted Airport (in the County of Essex north of London) on a hot – yes, it can be very hot in England – summer afternoon we have had few negative experiences on the train. Trains are frequent, generally on time and they are an efficient way to get around in England and other European nations where heavy road traffic often leads to total gridlock. We would far rather take the train than drive ourselves. Besides, they drive on the wrong side of the road in the UK! German experience Kathy and I and our friends the LeBlancs have also had very good train travel experiences in Germany in recent years. Getting around that country couldn’t be easier on the highspeed train service and using the trains is so convenient. If you fly to Frankfurt am Main (simply Frankfurt to most people) there are two railway stations right at the airport. One is for domestic travel, the other for international train service. Traveling south via Mannheim, Karlsruhe and Baden-Baden we reached our destination, Offenburg, so quickly we were amazed. We then picked up our rental van and proceeded with our tour of the Black Forest and the nearby Alsace Region of eastcentral France. Our planned visit to Ireland this summer will also include liberal use of the train. It will be our first time using the rail service on the island but given our past European experiences we have no hesitation in booking trains there. We plan a combined train/coach (bus) tour of the south coast in the Irish Republic and the west coast up to Galway. From there we will return to our base in Dublin before departing, again by rail, for Belfast, the capital of Northern Ireland. The four of us love the train and we are thrilled at the prospect of seeing sections of Ireland from the comfort of a railway carriage. Personally, I would recommend the train to anyone planning a visit to the British Isles, Ireland or Continental Europe. From air hubs such as London, Glasgow, Dublin and Frankfurt you can quickly and efficiently travel virtually anywhere across the European continent. Besides train/ coach excursions there are also trips which combine train and sea travel. Your travel agent will be happy to outline the many options available to you. We can hardly wait to depart on our latest European adventure. Using the train will simply make our journeys all the more enjoyable! It’s a lesson we need to apply here in order to reduce our growing dependence on motor vehicles. More public transit is the way to go and you need look no farther than Europe to see how well it could work here.

A musical spring awakening Correspondent

On May 2, you can travel on a musical time machine when BrassWerks, Eastern Ontario’s premier chamber brass and percussion ensemble, presents It Might As Well Be Spring! The performance will take you back to through centuries, as well as meandering around the present. “We have two pieces of music involving students,” said Rick Cairns of Brasswerks. “We’ve never done anything of a student nature before. Some of the people in our group felt strongly that being part of a community group, we should do this. I think people will be really interested in what they hear.” The student works will involve local connections. BrassWerks will perform The Spirit of Fire: Ember, by Derek Horemans, who is studying composition at St. Lawrence College. Mendelssohn’s Song Without Words No. 53 has been arranged by Kingstonian Sophie Szczesniak, who is currently studying music at McGill University “Be prepared to bounce around from one style to another, from the 17th century to the 21st century,”

said Cairns. “It’s not at all unusual for us to be playing something written in the last six months, as well as something like Giovanni Gabrieli’s antiphonal music. Gabrieli worked in St. Mark’s Cathedral in Venice in the 16th century. Musicians were placed in different galleries. We’ll be starting the second half with a Gabrieli antiphonal concerto.” John Palmer, a retired from Frontenac Secondary School teacher, formed BrassWerks about ten years ago. “John plays trombone in the Kingston Symphony and conducts Orchestra Kingston,” said Cairns. “He’s a very successful composer for brass and wind groups. He’s also written for strings and other groups. He’s been conducting BrassWerks for about six years.” Cairns explained that he and Palmer traded roles a few years back. “I had conducted for three or four years and John played euphonium,” said Cairns. “We basically changed places. Now I play euphonium and he conducts.” Cairns said he enjoys the euphonium because of its diverse potential. “I was a trumpet player for many years and moved about eight years

ago to euphonium,” he said. “It’s nice because sometimes I play the bass line and sometimes melodies in the tenor range.” BrassWerks hosts three concerts per year. “We used to do four and sometimes five,” said Cairns. “But a number of our members also play in the Kingston Symphony and it’s tough to work in all the concerts.” In addition to its regular scheduling, BrassWerks has also performed at places like Fort Henry. Cairns said that for their fall and winter programs, they often have guest artists like Brian Jackson. “I can’t say enough about

how good he’s been to us,” said Cairns. “He has a warm spot for Kingston.” Regardless of the era, music is an important part of our lives. “Music speaks to something within us that is indescribable in words,” said Cairns. “It takes a shortcut to our emotions. I think it helps us get in touch with the universality of people. That someone 400 years ago could have written a piece of music that touches me today is exciting. Music can also be relaxing, although it isn’t always.” Cairns remembers his own early encounters with music. He grew up in Toronto and his father was a

tenor soloist in the church choir. “My dad listened to opera from the Met (The Metropolitan Opera in New York City) every Saturday for 50 years,” he said. “I also remember being taken to a band concert in the park and listening to the trumpet player and thinking, ‘Oh my gosh, that’s my dream. If I could to that, it would be so exciting.’ I don’t know if I would have the same reaction if I’d heard it on the radio. It’s a different experience in person. It can be really visceral.” The May 2, BrassWerks show will feature something for everyone. “Our concerts generally cover about four centuries. We’ll have a Continued on page 14

Bach fugue [Little Fugue in G Minor], Mendelssohn, Grieg [Morning Mood] and Mouret’s famous Rondo, which served as the theme of Masterpiece Theatre for years.” You’ll hear a new John Palmer arrangement of Chuck Mangione’s Children of Sanchez. There are also works like Burt Bacharach’s Casino Royale and Richard Rodgers’ It Might As Well Be Spring, along with the traditional folk Ríu Ríu Chíu. That’s quite a range of songs. “We really do have fun at our concerts,” said Cairns. “We’re relaxed. They tease me that I talk too much. But brass players need a rest between tunes, so I try to explain the background to some of the songs. People tell us afterward that we look like we’re having so much fun.”

BrassWerks features a diverse group of musicians, ranging from retired teachers to young moms. “One of the things that I’m really pleased with is that we’re about a fifty-fifty proportion of male and female musicians,” said Cairns. “Some of us are retired, but there have also been three babies born to our musicians in the last three years.” Cairns explained that in the future he would like to see BrassWerks involved with more outreach. “We’d like to do more further afield, like concerts in Belleville and Brockville,” he said. “We bill ourselves as eastern Ontario’s premier brass ensemble. It’s a large group and to get people together for rehearsals is not the easiest. What works really well for us is to do a concert in Kingston and then

repeat it somewhere like Belleville. Our dream is to become better known.” For more information about BrassWerks, visit brasswerks.ca. Tickets for the May 2 (7:30 p.m.) It Might As Well Be Spring! performance are available at the Church Bookroom or at the door. This concert will be

held at Cookes-Portsmouth United Church, 200 Norman Rogers Drive in Kingston. For more information, visit brasswerks. ca. Mark Bergin on Twitter @ markaidanbergin.

KFL&A Public Health takes on a new approach for tick surveillance and prevention Gazette News — As temperatures rise and more and more Kingstonians head outside to enjoy the weather, KFL&A Public Health urges people to be aware of ticks. Over the past few years they have been collecting ticks from local residents in an effort to assess their risk and find out how many carry Lyme disease, but now surveillance is moving in a different direction. “Last year we had almost 600 ticks submitted to us and 23 per cent of those ticks were infected. That has helped us get a handle on what is going on in our area here, but this doesn’t tell us how these ticks are distributed and what the risks are in certain parts of the region so we have made a decision to move from passive surveillance to a more active surveillance,” explained Dr. Ian Gemmill, medical officer of health for KFL&A Public Health. “That means that we will no longer just take ticks in, but we will actively go looking and strategically decide where we will go and how often to get a sample of our entire area instead of what just happens to attach to human beings.”

Gemmill thinks this approach will give them a better characterization of how ticks are distributed throughout the area and will better inform residents in the future about where ticks are and, more importantly, where the infected ticks are. While ticks are hard to avoid, especially for avid hikers and dog walkers, Gemmill advises residents to be wary when they walk through potential risk areas. “We still recommend avoiding areas where we know ticks will be like areas where there are deer and mice present, areas with high grasses and brush, but if you do need to enter these areas remember to wear long sleeves and pants and maybe even tuck your pants into socks,” added Gemmill. “This still doesn’t guarantee anything so you still need to do a tick check and make sure that you know your own skin and what is a mole or small mark and what isn’t. The ticks can be very tiny and can be as small as a typed period on a page so you need to be diligent.” Gemmill also advises checking pets and children on a regular basis, as they sometimes wander into different areas and may pick

up ticks there. If you do find a tick there are certain actions to take; ticks can transmit infection only after being attached for more than 24 hours so remove any tick as soon as possible. The proper way to remove a tick, explained Gemmill, is by using tweezers to grasp it gently by the head, as close to the skin as possible, and then pull it straight out. The area should then be cleaned with soap and water. If a tick has been attached longer than 24 hours and has been removed in the past 72 hours, a health care provider can provide advice about preventive antibiotics. Tick season generally begins in the spring and lasts until the first snowfall, so Gemmill advises people to be aware all throughout the summer and into the fall. The best prevention of Lyme disease is to avoid ticks and Gemmill urges residents to always be aware of their surroundings. “Lyme disease can be a serious disease but it can be prevented at several stages along the way through various techniques and the key point here is prevention.” For more information about ticks, prevention tips and treatments visit www.kflapublichealth.ca

Cross walk Gazette Events – Walking with the cross on Good Friday has become popular in the northern part of Frontenac County with several area churches observing the tradition, like this group that began at St. Andrew’s Anglican Church in Sharbot Lake.

“Nurture Nature” by including more native flowers and plants in your garden this year By Hollie Pratt-Campbell hpratt-campbell@perfprint.ca

Gazette News — As you plan your garden for the upcoming spring/ summer season, local conservation biologist Lesley Rudy hopes to inspire you to include more flowers and plants that are native to our region. “Native plants provide great habitat for wildlife, plus they’re also hardy and well adapted to our environment,” she explains. “They actually require less care and therefore less maintenance costs for you down the road.” Rudy has worked for many years in the natural resources and restoration field for the Ministry of Natural Resources and Ducks Unlimited Canada. Through her new business, Nurturing Nature, she will help community members plan and create their own beautiful, environmentally responsible gardens. “There is a real need for habitat for native plants and animals in both urban and rural environments,” Rudy says. “A lot of people are planting ornamental species, which look great but maybe aren’t very hardy and don’t provide great habitat. Our native wildlife is adapted to our plants, so the things that they eat and that they use for shelter are mainly our native plants.” For example, she explains that the monarch butterfly is now an

endangered species; as a caterpillar, it lives almost solely off of the milkweed plant, which is native to our region. By including milkweed in your garden, you can help this species to populate and thrive. Other common native plants include the trillium, the New England aster, raspberries and many more. “There are actually about 3,000 species of plants in Ontario so there’s no shortage,” Rudy says, adding that a native garden certainly doesn’t have to mean less colour. “Native plants come in lots of beautiful colours. As with any perennial, the blooming time is usually a bit shorter than say geraniums or pansies or [other plants] that are annuals, but with the right kind of planning you can get some colour all season.” And they’re good for the environment to boot. “Native plants generally have nice deep roots as opposed to your lawn grass or your annuals that have very short roots, which means that they are less susceptible to drought and also that they do a much better job at filtering pollutants out of our lakes and rivers,” Rudy explains. In keeping with this environmentally friendly philosophy, she intends to minimize Nurturing Nature’s carbon footprint as much as possible by commuting to clients’ gardens by bike. “I’m a big believer in bicycles as a

form of transportation. Particularly “I’m just hoping that people start centre what native plants you can in an urban environment, I don’t see considering native plants more incorporate into your garden. That any reason why I can’t do this all by and more and incorporating them helps everybody because we have a bike and therefore have a reduced into their existing gardens,” she better environment for it.” impact [on the environment].

She notes that plants like strawberries, raspberries, leeks, fiddleheads, cherries and walnuts are all native to our region, so there’s no shortage of variety. She will also be working with a lawn maintenance person who specializes in ecologically-friendly landscaping for customers who are still interested in having a lawn as part of their yard. More than anything, Rudy’s The New England aster is one of many colourful plants that are native hope is to raise awareness of the to our region. importance of native plants.

Mommy is not a four letter word: New book challenges the modern “mommy-wars” narrative hpratt-campbell@perfprint.ca

Gazette News – When Kerry Clare’s first daughter, Harriet, was born in 2009, she found herself with a new life obsession. “It was my occupation, but it was also my preoccupation, because it was all I could talk about,” the Toronto-based writer and editor says of her new role as a mother, recalling the many books she read and conversations she had with friends on the topic. “But I also began to see that my preoccupation was alienating for some people. I had friends who couldn’t relate to these experiences. I had one friend who was having fertility problems. She was having a miserable time and felt so apart from women and mothers and where she wanted to be in her life. I started to think about how [the experiences of women who are not mothers] fit into the motherhood narrative even if it wasn’t in the conventional way.” These experiences inspired Clare’s new book, The M Word: Conversations About Motherhood, a collection of essays written by 25 women describing how they personally relate to the word. Clare joined Kingston-based contributors Sarah Yi-Mei Tsiang, Nancy Jo Cullen and Susan Olding April 16 for a reading at Novel Idea. “Somebody said about the book that ‘motherhood is a role like any other’, and I disagreed with that - I think that it’s

something all women have to grapple with regardless of what their choices are,” Clare says, noting that mothers and non-mothers alike are constantly put in the position of having to defend their choices as they relate to their offspring or lack thereof. “I’m tired of seeing women’s stories put in opposition to each other, and women having to defend themselves and apologize for their lives - not necessarily even the lives they’ve chosen, but the lives they’ve ended up with.” Indeed, Clare notes that The M Word can be described as an anti-“mommy wars” book, even down to the way the essays are arranged. “I tried to organize the book thematically originally and it didn’t work. Then I decided to see what would happen if I did it in alphabetical order and it just turned out perfect…Because you can’t organize people’s experiences - life is too random.” Clare’s own contribution discusses how the abortion she had in her early 20s shaped her experience as a mother later in life. “My parents are waiting for me to finally stop telling this story,” she laughs, adding on a serious note that she was almost surprised by how satisfied and relieved she felt about her choice to terminate her first pregnancy after her daughter was born. “It was seven years between my first pregnancy and the one I really wanted and it was a huge revelation when Harriet was born about the choice I had made.

For me at the time it was the only choice but once I understood the implications of motherhood and how huge it is I was just so grateful that I had that choice and that I made the right one.” Clare says that she feels very proud of The M Word, and hopes it conveys to

readers that the perceived hostility between women in relation to motherhood is really all just an illusion. “Women can do really wonderful things when we work together and acknowledge our differences – when we accept each other on our own terms and not

think of our stories as being in opposition to one another. You don’t have to be defensive. It’s just letting the stories be.” The M Word can be found at all major bookstores. To learn more about Kerry Clare, visit her website and blog at www. picklemethis.com.

ADHD Parental Support Group hopes to attract new members through awareness day By Mandy Marciniak Reporter

Gazette Events – For many parents, admitting that your child has a mental disorder can be tough, but Denise Vanden Engel wants to make it easier. A few years ago, she had the idea to start a support group for parents dealing with ADHD and now, with the support of the community, that group has evolved into a successful network of parents supporting each other. “I lived a life that was quite dysfunctional because of ADHD and a number of other things and I’m raising four kids now and struggling with similar issues and I really felt like support was needed,” explained Engel. “I went to the parent council at Elginburg Public School and they helped us get a support group going. They also helped us get a Parent Reaching Out (PRO) grant to get things going financially and that’s how we got started in 2010 and we’ve just grown from there.” The group, now in its fourth year, used to meet at Elginburg Public School but recently moved to 255 Kingscourt Avenue, making the meetings even more accessible for parents. Meetings take place on the first Tuesday of each month and Engel is happy to see about 10 to 15 parents show up at each meeting. As a support group, members discuss issues they may be having with their children and then the group works together to come up with solutions and

possible plans of action. Overall, the main focus is support and showing each other that they are not alone. “The whole experience is a roller coaster and there are so many ups and downs and we really just need to support each other through that,” added Engel. “The biggest problem I see is that parents need to change themselves and their behavior. If a parent can change the way they are living their life and the way they are parenting it can be really beneficial. Most parents of ADHD children have some of the symptoms too so they need to address that and make sure that they are willing to make changes to help their child.” ADHD is one of the most common mental health conditions and it continues to be the most misunderstood, explained Engel. Like most mental health disorders, ADHD has a lot of stigma attached to it and in an effort to educate the public about the disorder and breakThere’s down some of that stigma the group holds an annual workshop in October and an awareness weekend every spring. “The workshop helps to educate parents about challenges of ADHD and how to parent their kids from a different perspective and we get involved with other organizations in Kingston to run the workshop,” explained Engel. “We also do the awareness event every spring and the Cataraqui Town Centre provides the space for free and we come out and 613-546-8885 provide information and encourage

parents to step out and be advocates for their children and other people with ADHD. Education is the most important part and we need help getting that out there.” This year’s awareness weekend is being held on May 3 and 4 and Engel encourages people to come out and learn about ADHD. This is the third year for the event and the group receives many more emails and inquiries every year after the event. “People are more willing to come forward and seek help after they come see us in the mall. A lot of what keeps parents away is the stigma attached to ADHD and the shame in admitting that their child has it, but that needs to be broken down and parents need to accept this as a mental disorder and move forward and treat it and adapt to it. Once you accept that your child has this disability you are more likely to be able to educate yourself and find the right path to help your child be successful.” For more information about the ADHD Parental Support Group go to their website at www.adhdsupportgroup.ca or look for them on Facebook.

Sometimes it’s a tough road to tow Car Counsellor bjoeturner@hotmail.com

Lifestyle - A local reader wrote in recently to outline some difficulties he had this past winter with a road-side assistance provider. On a particularly cold day in early December, he called the Volkswagen Canada road-side assistance office to report his stillunder-warranty VW wouldn’t start in his driveway. They contacted their service provider, CAA, who dispatched a local truck. Our VW owner was surprised to learn that the tow truck wasn’t equipped with booster cables, and was only prepared to tow the vehicle to the nearest VW dealership. While the VW was being loaded on the flat/ tilt bed truck, our owner reports he warned the tow operator that the front bumper cover was coming close to being struck on the bed of the truck. The driver ignored his comment and the bumper did scrape on the platform causing some damage. At this time the tow operator presented a damage waiver for the VW owner to sign. He naturally refused and the vehicle was deposited back into his driveway. The vehicle was eventually started and our owner took the vehicle soon after to a body shop to repair the damage at a cost of $180.

It’s not very useful advice to simply say; deal with a service provider you know and trust in a

situation like this. Few consumers ever develop a repeat customer relationship with a tow-truck operator and both groups seldom meet under the best circumstances. As well almost no stranded motorist knows in advance, which operator will be dispatched to his or her assistance. When making a call for road-side on a bitterly cold winter day, advise the operator whether or not your vehicle is on the side of the road or in the driveway at home. This will let them properly prioritize calls. If you suspect only a boost is required, ask if the truck can provide that service or if your vehicle must be towed. I wouldn’t sign any property damage waiver until I could first document the present condition of the property. Since most of us are tethered to a cell-phone or at least have a camera, take photos to protect both yourself and the towoperator. If you run into a concern, take it up with the agency that you first communicated with. As our VW owner found out, the carmaker seemed to be more interested in his satisfaction than the towing company. With stories like this it’s no surprise that the following action hasn’t been initiated before. The Ontario government recently announced new legislation on tow truck operators to regulate both them and car storage facilities. The proposed new rules would require tow truck operators and storage providers to:

A)   Have permission from a consumer or someone acting on behalf of the consumer before charging for towing and storage services. B)  Publicly post prices and other information, like the operator’s name and contact information. C) Accept credit card payments from consumers. D)  Provide an itemized invoice listing the services provided and the total cost. “We are strengthening consumer protection for drivers involved in traffic collisions or in need of roadside assistance. Drivers should have the confidence that the tow truck operator helping them is reputable and will treat them fairly,” Tracy MacCharles, Ontario Minister of Consumer Services commented. If you have any questions, opinions, or stories on anything automotive please drop me a line, [By email to emc@perfprint.ca or directly to bjoeturner@hotmail. com listing ‘Question for the Car Counselor’ on the subject line or by post to Record News Communications, 5 Lorne St., P.O.

by a third party, and we expect the same level of service our customers do when dealing with us directly. I spoke with a representative there and here was the response, which I believe is quite excellent: The standard industry practice to request a customer’s signature on a waiver form is solely for purpose of confirming pre-existing damage prior to the vehicle being towed. Once the service has been rendered, it is too late for the service provider to request that the customer sign a damage waiver. Volkswagen Roadside Assistance has a process in place to review and investigate any allegations made against service providers; and we endeavor to take corrective actions to guarantee complete customer satisfaction. Safety and security is number one priority when providing roadside assistance services to our customers. Any actions by a service provider that would preclude the customers’ safety would be dealt with accordingly. I think that we, from our end, have done a good job with this customer and hope that he has many happy years of motoring.”

When he presented this invoice to the towing company’s office looking for reimbursement, they refused, telling him to take the matter up with his own liability insurance. He figured the only recourse left was to seek a judgement through the Small Claims Court and as he was filling out the paperwork, he decided to report all this to VW Canada. VW Canada did an investigation and determined our owner merited reimbursement and sent him a cheque for the full amount. He was happy with that side of the story, but wonders what might have happened if he was stranded on a lonely highway in a blizzard. He also questioned the ethics of asking for a damage waiver to be signed after his car was damaged. I forwarded his email to me (with his permission) to both the towing company and VW Canada and asked for their response. The towing company provided a rather terse response indicating they had forwarded my inquiry to their lawyer and nothing further was heard from them. However VW Canada provided this response for the record; “Thank you for the opportunity to address this issue. I’m very sorry that this customer has had a negative experience, but am gratified that Volkswagen Canada was able to resolve the matter to his satisfaction.

OBITUARY

Purvis, Riley M, 28, of Prescott ON & Weyburn SK passed away Thursday April 10, 2014, the result of a tragic car accident. He was born in Kitchener ON, on December 31, 1985 to Hugh and Sharon Purvis. Upon graduation from St. Mary High School in Brockville, Riley held many jobs including BMHC, as well as being Kriska Transportations youngest transport truck driver. Being a driver helped Riley to make the decision to move out to Saskatchewan in 2008 for work. He quickly studied and worked his way up the ladder in various roles related to the oil field industry; most recently accepting a job as the Field Operations Manager, Western Canada for Am-Gas. Riley was loved and respected by his co-workers, managers and clients. Riley is survived by his loving parents Hugh and Sharon (Taylor). Brother Rob (Tanis), Sisters Alison (Matt), Amy and Ashley, Nephews Tyson and Ryder, Niece Camryn, and his beloved Puppy Titan (Adopted by Alison), Maternal Grandparents Helen and Bob Taylor of Comox BC, Aunts Sue (Ron) of North Grenville, Gayle (Ray) of Lowell, MA, Sheila (Brian) of Wakefield QC, Uncle Brian (Gwyneth) of Comox BC, and many cousins. Family and friends are invited to the visitation at the St. Mark Parish Centre in Prescott ON from 7pm to 9pm on Friday May 9th. The Liturgy of the Christian Funeral will take place at 11 AM Saturday May 10th at St. Mark Catholic Church with interment in the parish cemetery immediately following.

PUZZLE PAGE

HOROSCOPES ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 – You are in a position of power this week, Aries. But this doesn’t mean you can impose your will onto someone else. Don’t try to take over any situation

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 – Cancer, make your feelings known when something upsets you this week. Sharing these feelings will benefit you and your friends and colleagues now and in the future.

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 – Libra, after several days of working entirely off of adrenaline, you finally have some time to kick back and relax. This will help you recharge your internal battery.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 – One of your goals this week is to propel yourself further without pushing others too hard, Capricorn. You want to be successful but not at the expense of others.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 – Taurus, someone might dredge up uncomfortable feelings, but you need to muddle through with a smile on your face. This is the case at home and at work.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 – Leo, your feelings of restlessness this week can benefit from a creative outlet. Engage in an activity that keeps your hands and your mind busy, such as a craft or a home project.

SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 – Your motivation is very strong this week, Scorpio. You can accomplish much more than you ever expected in a short period of time. Pick your projects wisely.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 – Gemini, separate your personal and professional lives, particularly with regard to potentially contentious issues. You may want to keep mum for a while.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 – Virgo, minimize any negative energy this week. Strive to be a source of optimism when others are looking at the glass as half empty. It can work wonders.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 – Sagittarius, you are unable to convey some feelings to others, but your body language will go a long way toward getting your message across. Remain conscious of your actions.

PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 – Pisces, trust your gut instincts on an issue that has been puzzling you this week. Your intuition might be your best asset.

UP IN MY GRILL

A GUIDE TO CULINARY HAPPENINGS AND SEASONAL FOOD

Kate Kristiansen

Comfort is a warm, salty ball of rice By Kate Kristiansen Columnist

Gazette Lifestyle – The words hung in the air. There was no going back. I wished they could be unsaid. Nevertheless, there they were. Something caught in my throat, but I still managed to say, “Don’t worry, cancer is just a word, not a sentence.” I proclaimed this with as much enthusiasm as I could muster. Days away from retiring, Mom was told life-altering news. Over the previous few months, if not years, she had been dreaming and thinking about retirement. (Who doesn’t?) The celebration Caribbean cruise booked, Christmas shopping ahead, wedding anniversary toasts and many more adventures. Among those carefully laid plans, hospital stays and cancer did not feature. A deep veil of sadness hung over us all. Mom is always smiling. Even in the darkest of times, she will find irony and humor. This time, all was quiet. She spent her time vehemently crocheting afghans, each stitch helping her to push through and make sense of this news. Cancer: It knows no boundaries. Our family is not the only one touched by it. The clinic waiting room was filled with children, teens, and adults - young and old. Some had family and friends gathered with them for support. Others were on their own.

The course of treatment for Mom was surgery. She had a fantastic surgical team; each member took the time to answer all of our questions. The morning of surgery, Mom registered at the desk and we were handed a number. A large screen in the waiting room provides updates to family, so we were able to know where she was in her procedure at all times. It was as if she was checked baggage, and we could claim her at the other end. The end, what did that look like? You always hope the individual comes out of surgery better off than when they went in. Mom’s recovery was tough, but with the help of the amazing staff and doctors at Kingston General Hospital, specifically Doctor Bryson and his team, she managed through it. It was a huge relief to find she was doing well, cancer removed. We brought her home and slowly the smile returned. The weeks passed; Mom was feeling a new resolve. She’d kicked cancer’s butt, like so many courageous others. Then we got the call. It was an aggressive form of cancer and further treatment would be required. These months have been hard on Mom and the whole family. We all feel the weight of cancer, but not as much as Mom does. This weekend we were at a 40th birthday celebration for my cousin. Forty: the age where youth is behind you and death seems far enough away.

Since Mom’s diagnosis, life seems more like a gift then ever before, and birthdays that much more important. The party was Mom’s first real public gathering since discovering she had cancer. The room filled with family, friends and babies scooting across the floor. I looked at her, studied the smile on her face, but then I noticed it…her eyes. I looked around to see if anyone else could see it, but it was hard to spot - her smile was so bright. However, there it was: cancer, its large black cur-

tain pinned back at the corners. Driving home, I stopped in at a friend’s house. Expecting a quick cup of coffee, they handed me an onigiri, which is a Japanese grilled rice ball. Onigiri is the original Japanese fast food, and simply means a ball of rice. It is generally a parcel of rice stuffed with healthy and creative fillings. The best part is that it’s easy to make, tasty, healthy, gluten-free and portable. The warm and perfectly white onigiri sat in my hand. It was made of

Japanese sticky rice, rolled and shaped into a neat ball filled with spring onions, soya sauce and creamy vegetable miso. I studied it, and pondered over whether to eat it. When I finally took a bite, it broke open revealing the salty warm goodness inside. It was delicious and nourishing. That day, on the way home I let the tears fall. Through all the recent stress, it was a friend’s gift of food, a symbol of love, that gave the emotional support I needed.
