EMC Events - The Verona Lions held their annual Jamboree last weekend, a tradition that dates back to the first one 1951, two years after the club received its charter. In those days, the club house was the old school on the west side of the K & P line (now gone). The Lions moved to their current location in the ’70s. Photo/Craig Bakay

Central roads department shifts funds around, Oak Flats Road to be completed By Craig Bakay Reporter
EMC News — With the grant process that would have financed work on Wagarville Road being late, Central Frontenac Public Works Manager Mike Richardson convinced council to redirect township funds allocated to the project to the completion of Oak Flats Road at the regular meeting last week in Arden. “I feel the existing budget can absorb this,” Richardson said. “Because the grant program was late, meaning Wagarville Road won’t be done until 2014, so we can take the money from there.” Richardson said the original 2012 estimate of $215,000 won’t be enough
to do all the work required on Oak Flats, which has been revised to $368,000. “I’ve noticed some surface treatments are not lasting as long as they could be,” Richardson said. “The reason is the base is not being prepared as well as it can be. “I’m hoping the extra money spent here will give you longevity — we’re hoping to get 15 years rather than the seven we’ve been getting.” The upgrades to Oak Flats will include double surfacing as opposed to single surfacing, more stone in the base, another culvert, and some gabion rock around water areas as requested by the Conservation Authority. In response to a question from Coun. Frances Smith, Richardson said
this would complete work on Oak Flats Road. “I’m disappointed in the grant process being late and not getting to Wagarville Road this year,” said Mayor Janet Gutowski. “We have to make sure we get the budget process done in time next year. “Wagarville is not good to drive on and we will be hearing from people.” Oak Flats wasn’t the only project subject to budget overruns either. Reconstruction on Elm Tree Road — grading, drainage, paving and sidewalks—in the hamlet of Arden will cost an additional $4,000, making the total there $84,000, Richardson said. However, he said the capital budget could absorb the overrun. Coun. Tom Dewey said he’d been
fielding complaints about brush along roadways in Kennebec District. “And I know the brusher’s been out in Oak Flats,” Dewey said. Richardson said the increased rainfall this year has created lots of problems, not only with brush but with washouts but “we’re just finishing up in Oak Flats but then we’ll be spending more time in Kennebec.” Gutowski took the opportunity to praise the roads department. “I think the Public Works department has handled the downpours very well,” she said. “Given the number of washouts and all the brush, I’ve had very few calls.” “We have been out at midnight and on weekends this year where normally we wouldn’t,” said Richardson.

onstructed during the 1970’s, by Nestor and Donald Wowk, Inverary Golf & Country Club opened the doors to its first nine holes in 1980. From that point on, the small, family run Golf Course began to develop and mature. Today Inverary G&CC is an 18 hole facility with a large fully licenced Clubhouse, Pro Shop and Restaurant. The newer back nine is quite a bit different from the original course. With many winding rivers, large sand traps and wooded areas it’s a challenging yet scenic experience that golfers of all abilities can enjoy. Recently the course has been focusing on upgrades to both the Clubhouse and
the Golf Course. Most changes will take place over the next 12 months but some of them are already in effect. Most recently a new menu has been launched with a great selection of appetizers, salads, sides and main courses. The restaurant is now open until 9:00pm on a daily basis. Ground has already been broken on the construction of a brand new driving range which will be completed and open for business in 2014. The new practice facility will include a full sized driving range and at least one more practice green, in addition to the two practice greens already near the clubhouse.
Over the upcoming winter season the Clubhouse will be undergoing some renovations to improve the service, comfort and appearance of the facility. A few of the renovations will include a new and larger bar, to offer draft beer and improve the speed of service, more flat screen T.V’s, and new flooring laid through the entire Clubhouse. This year Inverary G&CC celebrates its 33rd anniversary, is excited about the upcoming upgrades to the facility, and looking forward to another 33 years of fantastic golf seasons in this wonderful area north of Kingston.

Lake associations front and centre at Arden meeting Reporter
EMC News — Generally, when Central Frontenac Council holds its meetings, there are very few members of the public in attendance. Not so at last week’s regular meeting, held in Arden (council holds the vast majority of its meetings at Oso Hall in Sharbot Lake but schedules one meeting per year in each of Kennebec, Mountain Grove and Piccadilly Halls, during the summer months). The hall was packed, the firefighters put on dinner for council and the crowd, and no less than five delegations made presentations, three of which were from the lake associations of Kennebec, Big Clear and Sharbot Lakes. In the case of Kennebec and Sharbot Lakes, the presenters used the opportunity to unveil their lake plans, both nicely bound and presented documents that used decidedly different approaches. “It’s concise,” said resident John DuChene, describing the 14-page Kennebec Lake Stewardship Plan. “It’s based on three principles — to foster environmental awareness, to safeguard the lake/watershed/adjacent lands and to pursue common interests and concerns.” “I like that it’s concise,” said Mayor Janet Gutowski. “That increases the chances it will be read.” While it may not be the voluminous tome that some lake associations have opted for, the plan does include a lot of interesting data and information which could be applied to most lakes in the area, with a special emphasis on how it applies to Kennebec.
For example: “Nutrient levels are currently in the mid-mesotrophic range. Any increase could tip the lake into eutrophic range with significant adverse effects. The pH of the lake water is almost neutral — very slightly basic. At present, zebra mussel populations are not observed in Kennebec Lake, possibly due to insufficient calcium.” The Sharbot Lake Lake Plan Report, presented by Sharbot Lake Property Owners’ Association President Carol Coupland, is a little thicker at 75 pages, and includes a preface, index and such. But it also contains data like MPAC information and considerable information on fish species, a “bird inventory,” as well as a rather comprehensive listing of trees, shrubs and wildflowers. Coupland said the plan was a three-tofour-year project that was completed in two years. It will be available for free at the annual general meeting July 20 at Oso Hall and then for $10 thereafter. And although she didn’t have a lake plan to present, Big Clear Lake Association representative Theresa Smith did bring some concerns, the first being a request for septic re-inspection and the second a request to look into what she called “illegal cottage rentals.” Smith said there are large cottages being rented out on a weekly basis but not registered as businesses, thus costing the township appropriate revenue. “How do you know they’re being rented and not just lent to friends and relatives?” said Coun. Tom Dewey. “They advertise on the internet,” said Smith.

Pat Despicable Me sequel offers Trew plenty of lovable characters
My Take BY MARK HASKINS
EMC Entertainment - I don’t know what it is about those crazy yellow minions, but they crack me and my kids up every time. Just like the first one, Despicable Me 2 will bring tears to your eyes from laughing so hard, and maybe one or two from tugging on your heart strings. Gru (Steve Carell) is back and BY JOHN TUCKER enjoying life as a suburban dad. Between birthday parties for the girls, dodging his whacky neighbour’s attempts to set him up,
wanting a mom. It’s enough to make an ex-super villain pull out his fart gun. Despicable Me 2 is a slapstick bonanza. It’s one gag after another in a non-stop laugh fest that will have your sides hurting. I honestly can’t remember the last time I laughed this much in a movie theatre. As wonderfully silly as Despicable Me 2 is, it’s also a great story with some great characters you really connect with. There are times when I felt it jumped around too quickly, but for the most part this is a warm and fuzzy comic adventure of epic proportions. Miranda Cosgrove, Dana Gaier, the adorable Elsie Fischer and the deviously witty Russell Brand all return to voice their beloved characters. Steve Coogan joins in as the head of the
MOVIE: Despicable Me 2 STARRING: Starring Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Miranda Cosgrove, Dana Gaier, Elsie Fisher and Benjamin Bratt DIRECTOR: Chris Renaud and Pierre Coffin RATING: G and creating truly awful jellies and jams with Dr. Nefario (Russell Brand) Gru’s plate is pretty full. Though I suppose there’s always room for saving the world. Lucy Wilde (Kristen Wiig) an agent of the Anti-Villain League kidnaps Gru and takes him to the AVL’s underwater headquarters. Most recently a villain has stolen a powerful mutagenic compound, and the AVL needs someone who thinks like a villain to catch a villain. They need Gru. Gru and Lucy go undercover in a mall to spy on the AVL’s top suspects. Gru is eager to be back in the game, but saving the world isn’t his only concern. Margo (Miranda Cosgrove) has discovered boys, and Agnes (Elsie Fischer) has been hinting at
This ad space was generously donated by:
AVL Silas Ramsbottom, and Benjamin Bratt jumps in the ring as the voice of suspected villain Eduardo. I’ve been a big fan of Steve Carell for a long time. He’s managed to do a lot of different films and varied characters, but I think my favorite is Gru. I love the concept, I love the voice, and I love his delivery. It’s sheer brilliance. Kristen Wiig lends her voice to Lucy Wilde, Gru’s partner and love interest. Wiig gives Lucy a zany manic quality that is hilarious while at the same time making her the perfect fit for Gru. Of course the big scene-stealers are the minions voiced by Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud. They’ve taken animated slapstick and elevated it to the level
in support of the Children’s Cancer Fund at KGH What is the Children’s Cancer Fund at Kingston General Hospital and why is it important? Treatment-related out-of-pocket expenses consume about 1/3 of an average family’s after-tax income and it is not uncommon for one parent to leave work in order to care for a sick child. Families from across our region often have added expenses related to their children’s illnesses that are not covered by insurance or any other source such as parking, travel, and accommodation for out-of-town treatment. For this reason, the Children’s Cancer Fund at KGH was created to assist families with the burden of these added costs. The fund is sustained by generous donations from the public.

In Our Opinion
Oso firefighters invite public to open house this Saturday Craig Bakay Reporter
EMC Editorial â€” This Saturday (July 20), you might want to drop by the Fire Station on Wagner Road just south of Sharbot Lake. The firefighters are planning an open house, with fire extinguisher demos, an auto extrication demo, and information on becoming a volunteer and how the station works. Theyâ€™ll also have hamburgers and sausages and drinks. No doubt Chief Bill Young and the guys will be doing a little recruiting but this is a good thing. One thing that doesnâ€™t get mentioned often enough is how valuable a volunteer fire department is to a rural municipality. The key word here is â€œvolunteer.â€? There is just no chance whatsoever any rural municipality could have a fire department if it were any other way. Hell, we just barely manage
to afford the equipment, insurance, and utilities for the buildings. If we had to add salaries and benefits on top of that, nobody would be able to afford the taxes it would take to pay for it all. And it should be pointed out somewhere that volunteer fire departments do a lot of fundraising to help pay for their equipment too. Not too long ago, somebody posted the following on Facebook. I donâ€™t know who wrote it in the first place but I thought Iâ€™d share it here. It goes like this . . . â€œOh, youâ€™re a firefighter? I wanted to do that when I was a kid. What do you make? â€œWhat do I make? â€œI make holding your hand seem like the biggest thing in the world while Iâ€™m cutting you out of a car. â€œI can make five minutes seem like a lifetime when I go into a burning house to save your family. â€œI make those annoying sirens seem like angels when you need them. â€œI can make your children breathe when they stop. â€œI can help you survive a heart attack.
Hot cars kill: a few tips to avoid a fatal mistake
â€œI make myself get out of bed at 3 a.m. to risk my life to save people Iâ€™ve never met. â€œToday, I might make the ultimate sacrifice to save your life. â€œI make a difference, what do you make?â€? You know, as a journalist, Iâ€™ve been at a lot of fires, car accidents, chemical spills, explosions, ice rescues and even getting a cat out of a tree or two. Iâ€™m constantly amazed at just how professional these â€˜volunteersâ€™ are. When you think about it, there really is no other humanly pursuit quite like what the volunteer firefighters do. You could look at it as kind of a service club I suppose, but then itâ€™s not often the Lions need breathing apparatuses at one of their functions. Which is not to say the Lions donâ€™t do a lot of good work in the community, because of course they do, just that the risk of bodily harm isnâ€™t quite as high. All joking aside, as someone whoâ€™s seen our volunteer firefighters in action, right across the country, if thereâ€™s anybody deserving of our support, itâ€™s these guys.
Stay cay with Summer Hollie Pratt-Campbell Reporter
EMC Editorial - Iâ€™ve always hated the word staycation. â€œItâ€™s an annoying and awkward combination of two words that just shouldnâ€™t go togetherâ€?, Iâ€™ve been known to complain to anyone who will listen. â€œPeople need to stop using it.â€? I mean, it sounds so much like vacation â€“ a word that holds infinite potential for fun and adventure in far-flung places â€“ but then it hits you that thereâ€™s a â€œstayâ€? where the â€œvayâ€? should be, and itâ€™s a huge letdown. Why would anybody spend their time off at home? All you get are the same old meals to be cooked, the same old messes to be cleaned and reminders of the daily grind everywhere you look. Earlier this month, I found myself face-to-face with my own first-ever staycation. Summerâ€™s caregiver was taking the week off, and Steveâ€™s vacation time is depleting at an alarming rate. For complicated bureaucratic reasons, I came back from maternity leave more vacation than I know what to do with, so I volunteered to take the week off to spend with
Summer. In many ways I was looking forward to it, as it gave me a week to bond with my little girl, whom I donâ€™t get to play with nearly as much as I would like. In another way, I was sorry we werenâ€™t going somewhere special. Alas, itâ€™s hard to take a baby on a trip by yourself, so at home we remained. As it turned out, we had a lot of fun. I taught Summer where her toes are, how to brush her hair and how to climb down from the couch without injuring herself. She spent hours playing in her kiddie pool â€“ which she miraculously has yet to grow bored of. I bought her some bubbles â€“ the kind soapy kind with the wand â€“ and she was absolutely charmed, screaming â€œbubbasâ€? whenever she caught sight of the container. We had family over for lunch on the Wednesday, and Summer enjoyed being the centre of attention while I welcomed the break of having other people entertain her for a few hours. On the Thursday, Summer and I went on a daytrip to Prince Edward County with my friend Julie and her little girl, McKenna, who is the same age as Summer. We found our own little â€œexclusiveâ€? beach (we were literally the only ones on it), where the babies had a great time running around in their diapers and trying to get away with eating sand. Afterwards,
we even managed to hit up a couple wineries, making it seem almost like the prechild vacations I once knew and loved. In the evenings, Steve and I put Summer to bed and drank beer or wine while we caught up on Netflix TV shows everyone else seems to have known about for years â€“ Homeland, Arrested Development. We were at home, sure, but it was still nice to sit and relax without constantly worrying about work in the back of my mind. It was also nice to know that the potential to sleep in the next morning was there, even if Summer never did get the memo about mommyâ€™s time off and insisted on waking at her usual 5:30 â€“ 6 a.m. each morning. By the end of the week, I really did feel closer to Summer, which was a wonderful feeling. I think she felt a stronger bond, too, as for a while I dethroned grandpa as her favourite person to be held and entertained by. So maybe taking a vacation at home isnâ€™t so bad after all. I got to relax, bond with my daughter, catch up with friends and family, and explore uncharted territory in a nearby town â€“ and I didnâ€™t spend piles of money doing it. An optimist would look at my week off and call it the best of both worlds. (That said, I still think we should do away with the word staycation.)
