Blowout

EMC Events – While there may not have been any actual funnel clouds spotted, Central Frontenac and area felt the full force of Mother Nature last week as a vicious wind/thunderstorm blew through uprooting trees like this one at Bob Harvey’s Barber Shop in Sharbot Lake. A number of roads took a hit as well, with some requiring significant repairs to become passable as well. Photo/Craig Bakay

Seminar to look at financial and legal planning for Alzheimer’s disease By Craig Bakay Reporter

EMC News — When you or a loved one is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia, there’s a lot to think about. Care and treatment often become paramount, as family and friends are forced to deal with the diminishing capacities of those afflicted. Lives change dramatically. Often, things like financial and legal planning get overlooked until they become an issue — and they will become an issue — and by that time, they’re often the last thing caregivers want to deal with in an already confusing and stressful situation. “We hear all the time from people how they’re having to deal with more than they should,” says Caitlin Nor-

wich-Stevenson, education and support co-ordinator for the Alzheimer Society of KFL&A. To that end, Norwich-Stevenson is organizing a seminar in Sharbot Lake Aug. 21 at 1 p.m. in the United Church Hall (across from the grocery store) that she hopes will provide Alzheimer’s patients and their caregivers with some tools they’ll need in order to cope with the realities this disease brings. Local lawyer Stephen Duggan and Royal Bank financial planner Sandra White are scheduled to speak on their related fields. “We wanted to go with local experts that people might find themselves more comfortable with,” she said. “The idea is to help everybody get their ducks in a row so they’re not stuck in a challenging spot later on.”

She said that even if you have made some plans, you might want to re-visit them as an Alzheimer’s diagnosis can change things. “For things like having a power of attorney, you may want to look at adding a second or third person,” she said. “Many couples list each other as power of attorney, and in some cases that can cause problems if the caregiver is elderly or infirm themselves. “And sorting out separating assets in a will can be challenging as [there have been] cases where there are three siblings and one of them ends up getting everything.” She said some of the topics to be discussed in the seminar include understanding consent and how that factors into things, i.e. understanding how the process works when you’re no longer

capable of making decisions and what it is you’re signing away. “These are topics that, when everything else is going on, tend to get overlooked,” she said. “Sometimes people don’t want to deal with it. “But it is really important to get your wishes down on paper as early on as you can, communicating while you can, and taking some of the burden off children and siblings, etc.” Ideally, Norwich-Stevenson would like participants to pre-register for the seminars and you can do so by calling her at 613-544-3078 ext. 202. The regular support group for August (Aug. 7) has been cancelled but meetings will resume Sept. 4.

Meet your market vendor: Hilborn Family Farm hpratt-campbell@theemc.ca

Andrea and Justin Hilborn are high school sweethearts who are as passionate about farming as they are about each other. The couple moved to Kingston from Cobourg several years ago to pursue career opportunities – Andrea

Justin and Andrea Hilborn

is a naturopathic doctor and Justin a heritage carpenter – and in 2010 they started Hilborn Family Farm, where they raise pastured chickens, turkeys, pigs and cattle. While the farm itself is located 30 minutes north of Kingston in the village of Moscow, the Hilborns set up every Sunday at the Memorial Centre Farmers’ Market in order to spread information about their meat.

“It basically means we’re working all the time,” Andrea says of juggling their full-time day jobs with daily farm chores. Still, she and Justin note that all the hard work is worth it, as sustainable farming is something they have wanted to be a part of since first trying it out through WOOF (Worldwide Opportunities on Organic Farms) a number of years ago. “It wasn’t the most positive experience, but it made us decide what we wanted to do,” Justin says. “We both love animals, so we wanted to get into meat production. It just seemed to make sense.” On pasture-based farms like the Hilborns’, animals live outside and regularly get rotated to fresh pasture. In addition to resulting in tastier, healthier meat, this method is better for the environment than conventional meat production. “It improves the land too,” Justin says. “It’s really apparent. A few weeks after we’ve moved them, whether it’s the cows, the pigs, or the chickens, you can see that it’s actually made where they were better. It just looks cleaner and the grass is growing healthier. It’s building soil, basically, and that’s what we want to be doing.” He explains that over time this process has become part of a system, of sorts, in which each animal has its own role on the pasture: “They work together. They improve Photo/Hollie Pratt-Campbell the pasture and then they improve [the

Oddfellows invite community in for musical afternoon By Craig Bakay Reporter

EMC News — It was an afternoon of music and barbecue at the Mayflower Lodge in Parham last weekend as the Oddfellows and Rebekahs welcomed the community. “We like to do something like this every year, to try and mix with the community,� said Noble Grand Joe LaPointe. “The musicians donate their time and should be thanked for that. “There’s a lot of stuff going on today.� Many of the musicians on stage were veterans of the Bedford/Piccadilly Jams, including the Piccadilly Pickers. “We enjoy doing this,� said Picker Roy Shepherd, who also donated the PA system for the event.

For LaPointe, the afternoon was about music and fellowship, but he wasn’t about to miss an opportunity to invite any one who might be interested in joining the organization, which has existed in Parham since 1892. Like many fraternal organizations, the Oddfellows have had to deal with burnout and dwindling numbers in the 21st Century. “We’re always looking for new members,� LaPointe said. “Back when it began, there weren’t a lot of things going on in a community like this and so it was easier to recruit. “But we get by, we still help the community any way we can. “We would like a few more bingo players though.� The Friday night bingos are one way the Oddfellows raise money to help in the community. Other

than a yearly grant for kids going to school, they don’t have a set service program, preferring to make themselves quietly available when the need arises. “For example, if somebody had a fire, we’d see that they got some money,� LaPointe said. “We can get wheelchairs or raise-up chairs and things like that. “But essentially, we’re there to help with anything in the community as long as it’s real.� For LaPointe personally, this is his second stint with the Oddfellows. “I was a member before and left but I came

        ! "  #$  $%   $% &$

back when membership was going down,� he said. “I’ve been back for about five years now.� The Independent Order of Odd Fellows began in 18th Century England, taking its name because it was deemed odd to find people organized for the purpose of giving aid to those in need without recognition and pursuing projects

for the benefits of all humanity. LaPointe said it’s easy to become a member. “You can contact me or any Oddfellow,� he said. “The annual dues are $40 and maybe the best way to join is to show up at bingo on Friday nights. “Or just look us up — we’re always around someplace.�

Places to explore and things to experience

Mark Bergin

Vacation photography gear EMC Lifestyle - We’re deep into the summer and I always get a lot more questions about photography techniques and equipment at this time of year. Truth is, given the right circumstances, you don’t need much equipment to take great photos. If you’re a camera enthusiast, you likely think you’ll never have all the gear you need. For spouses and partners of such obsessed individuals, there is, in fact, always another piece of photography equipment that’s essential. Plan for it when you budget. These things take priority over food, shelter and transportation. Don’t worry about the logic. Simply accept this as a given. You’ll quickly learn that potential problems multiply the farther you are from your home source (and equipment collection). Situations can get complicated and demanding on the street. To prevent disaster, I have redundant systems. If one fails, and it will, I’ve got the other as a backup. I usually have at least three memory cards (8 16 gb) with me. They’re the lightest item, so it’s easy to carry extras. I also carry a couple of batteries. Despite all the best intentions, things can still go screwy. I recently got to New York, along with my Canon 7D, an extra battery and my small battery charger. Life was good until I went to charge a battery. At the last second in Canada, I’d picked up the charger for my 50D camera. Yup. It fits a different sized battery. Duh. My backup for the week was my tiny Canon S100. Given the quality that comes out of this little masterpiece of engineering, I wasn’t in bad shape (except in very low light). If you’re on vacation in a new location, you won’t be familiar with your surroundings. For a street photographer, surviving a day without some kind of minor injury is a success story. I tend to wear sturdy boots for the climbing, crawling and running around

I do. But it’s summer. I’m more likely in sandals and shorts. The bruises and scrapes add up. A street photographer has to be aware of his/her surroundings at all times: cars speeding along; that pole you’re about to walk into (not that I’ve ever done that....weekly); the sign you’re about to smash you’re head into when you stand from lying on the ground. If you lose your awareness, you could suffer serious injury. There are some preventable injuries photographers have to watch for if they’re using pro equipment. Some of this gear is heavy, and the weight seems to increase as the hours roll by. Try lugging 12 pounds on a strap around your neck for eight hours and you’ll know what I mean. You can now prevent that. A company called Black Rapid (www.blackrapid.com) makes some amazing straps for the pro or amateur enthusiast. Their straps do not go around your neck or hang off one shoulder. Instead, the strap goes over a shoulder and the camera rests on the opposite side of your body. This takes all the strain off your neck muscles. The weight is evenly distributed. At the end of a day, you won’t feel like your neck or shoulder is in agony. I use the RS-Sport model. It has an added strap that prevents strap movement under active conditions. If you are just shooting scenery in the park, you won’t need this, but if you do any running or climbing in and out of trees or urban buildings, tunnels, or cliffs, you’ll appreciate the extra stability. This is one of the most important pieces of equipment for ensuring your own continued physical health and prevention of muscle strain. Black Rapid also makes straps for pocket cameras, guaranteeing that you’ll never drop your precious equipment. When you remove the camera from its protective case, the camera is

still attached to the camera strap worn cross body. Tendonitis is an annoying injury you can avoid. It’s difficult to remember your health when you’re on the street or in a high-adrenalin situation. That adrenalin takes away the pain you would otherwise feel. I once shot a West Point vs. RMC hockey game. The energy level in the arena was high. I held a heavy lens for a lengthy period of time, not wanting to take my eyes off the action. Sure I got some great shots, but I spent the next 6 months in physiotherapy thanks to tendonitis in my arm/elbow. The use of a monopod (which was in the trunk of my car) to support the camera could have prevented that injury. When I travel out of town, it’s unlikely I’ll be carrying much with me, unless I have a paid assignment that demands a lot of specific equipment. I like to travel light. One camera, two lenses, extra batteries, and a backup mini-camera (the Canon S100) are all I take. Sometimes I carry an extra SLR body. If you’re a serious (think obsessive) hobbyist or semi-pro and you’re trav- You don’t need expensive equipment to take good outdoor summer elling, I’d recommend you carry some photos.

In Our Opinion

Busiest weekend on tap in Frontenac County this weekend Craig Bakay Reporter

editorial@theheritageemc.ca

EMC Editorial — Just when you thought the last two weekends were the busiest ones in Frontenac this summer, this weekend comes along and promises to dwarf anything previous. Don’t believe it? Well, let’s start with Blue Skies. It’s that time of year again when Oskar’s farm becomes the centre of the music universe. This is one of the oldest continuous music festivals anywhere, and day passes are still available on a limited basis. However, if you want to camp, you have to be on the waiting list that makes getting Leafs season tickets look easy by comparison. But even if you don’t get in to Blue Skies, there is also the Canadian Guitar Festival at Loughborough Lake Camp on Sydenham Road. Lot’s of good pickers there and with a 10,000 square foot hall, there are usually good seats still available.

Also on the camp-with-music front, the Flinton Country Bluegrass Jamboree makes its annual visit this weekend. Not done with music, Elphinfest features eight bands for $10. Not content with that, with our hands behind our backs...(just a little Emerson, Lake and Palmer reference there). Then there’s the annual Frontenac Frolic at Bedford Hall put on by the Bobs & Drow Lakes Foundation, featuring the Cow Flop Bingo (just what it sounds like folks), a Desert Lake Bio-Blitz, and the opening of the North Frontenac Dark Sky Preserve at 7:30 p.m. at the helipad on Road 506. A.J. Casson’s daughter Margaret Hall will be making a presentation at Bon Echo and there are all sorts of cemetery services, fish fries, a Poultry Day at the Sharbot Lake Farmers Market and a ton of barbecues and bake sales. (I’ll mention the one by the Parham Seniors beside the post office in Parham from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. because some of their members scare the crap out of me.) And those are just the things we know

about that want the public to attend. Now, nobody can get to everything going on this weekend, least of all me. For the record, Blue Skies and the Guitar Festival are two of my favourites (kind of perks of the job) and I’m not likely to miss either in any given year. Also, if I’m not music’d-out, I’d like to get to the Dark Sky ceremony because not only do I spend a lot of time stargazing (often looking at the night sky), but I also think this is one of the best ideas anybody’s had for economic development in this area. (Its environmental footprint is about as small as it gets and let’s face it, when you’ve got the darkest, southern-most skies in North America, let’s use them.) Thankfully, on the Civic Holiday Monday, there doesn’t seem to be a lot on (other than the United Church musical luncheon in Henderson) so that would seem to be a day of rest or laid-backness at the very least. So don’t nobody say there’s nothing to do in Frontenac County. This weekend at least, there’s more than any one person can possibly get to.

life, and as noted above, I was lucky to never have to find out. Two months after an internship with the Kingston Whig-Standard, I was interviewing for a position as a junior reporter with the Kingston Heritage. I like to think I’ve always had a strong appreciation for the city in which I was both born and raised, but there’s something about working at a community newspaper that allows you to connect with the city in which you live, work and play on a deeper level; the stories and events I have covered, and the people behind them, have helped me develop an even greater appreciation for the Limestone City. As teenagers, many of us are often eager to leave our hometowns behind. We’re convinced that bigger and better things lay outside the city’s limits. While this may, in some cases, prove to be true, I hope both my staff and I have helped highlight all that is great about the Limestone City and helped to foster a greater appreciation for the region among city and area residents via the telling of positive news

stories from the community. These past six years with the Kingston Heritage/Frontenac Gazette EMC, I have thoroughly enjoyed becoming better acquainted with my hometown and connecting EMC readers with the community as well. That said, the time has come for me to move on. Before I do, I would like to offer my thanks to the colleagues and friends who have served alongside me at the Kingston Heritage/ Frontenac Gazette EMC during my sixyear tenure. I would also like to thank my loyal readers (I would be remiss if I didn’t give a shout out to friends Laura and Lindsey, loyal readers of Coughlar’s Corner), as well as all those who have shared their stories with me over the years. At this point I am uncertain where life will take me next. I am certain, however, that no matter where I end up, no other place will hold a place in my heart quite like that of the Limestone City, and I have you, the community, to thank for that.

EMC Editorial - Six years ago, after graduating from college, I was lucky enough to land a job in my hometown of Kingston, working at a local newspaper, the same newspaper that I write for today. When I first graduated from the Journalism-Print program at Niagara College, I was uncertain where my career would take me. My daily browsing of career sites had me a little worried that in order to land a job in my field of study I might be required to settle down in Toronto. It was a prospect that didn’t appeal me. While I’m sure there are those who would relish the opportunity to live and work in the cultural, entertainment and financial capital of Canada, I’d prefer to merely visit on occasion. I’ve never though myself cut out for big city

8 The Frontenac EMC - Thursday, August 1, 2013

A bad apple or two won’t spoil this bunch Two weeks ago, the city of Kingston got some very bad press, quickly followed by some very good press. News that a hate letter threatening bodily harm arrived in the mailbox of a local lesbian couple went viral, and quickly spread across the city, province and nation. The letter purported to be from a group of individuals dedicated to ridding the city of “the scourge of homosexuality� through intimidation. A second letter mentioned that the group had access to BB guns, and may be connected to a recent event in which the HIV/AIDS Regional Services building came under BB gun fire. Unfortunately for the authors, the letters ended up having the opposite effect, and proved that the vast majority of Kingstonians embrace the diversity the LGBT community brings to the city. At the time of writing, the Facebook page Kingston Loves the Queer Community has just over 4,000 likes, and many community members – including Kingston’s

federal and provincial elected representatives – have posted photos of themselves holding red hearts, symbolizing their love and support for diversity in our city. Two rallies were also held the weekend after the letters came to light, and a card of support was circulated and sent to the couple. Susan Belyea, one of the women targeted, was quoted as saying that the community’s response to the letters was “like a symphony of love.� She said that she and her partner, Karen Dubinsky, have also received numerous calls and letters of support. Sometimes, bad times end up bringing out the best in people, and that appears to be what has happened in this situation. Like the vast majority of our neighbours, we at the Heritage EMC love Kingston’s queer community, and are proud, based on the our city’s strong show of support for the targeted couple and the local LGBT community in general, to call this region home. Together, we have proven that love is indeed stronger than hate.

Learning to paddle among the Thousand Islands By Hollie Pratt-Campbell hpratt-campbell@theemc.ca

EMC Lifestyle - It turns out that the good people of Trailhead Kingston offer more fun water sport opportunities than just stand up paddle yoga. Following my memorable lesson about a month ago, instructors Michelle McShane and Katie Kyte informed me of an awesome-sounding excursion called Paddle and Pint, which features the hard-to-go-wrong-with combination of kayaking and beer. Trailhead offers Paddle and Pint every Wednesday evening; the excursion leaves Douglas Fluhrer Park at 6 p.m. Last week, I decided to try it out for myself. Our group included six guests, Marie Christine (“MC�), Adan, Luis, Karen, Sylvia and me, and two guides, Jim Franchetto and Chris Ellis. “Every week it’s a good two hour paddle,� Franchetto said. “Most of our paddlers are novice, and they want to try and introduce themselves to the sport of sea kayaking. Usually people take to it quite easily. Our boats are very beginner-friendly, they’re very stable, and usually a good time is had by all.� This was a relief to hear, as I had never in my life kayaked before. Franchetto noted that the vast majority of Paddle and Pint-ers are locals, though they do also get some tourists. This year, he has taken people from as far away as Egypt and Hawaii out kayaking, and Luis from our group was from Mexico. Franchetto explained that the route of the Paddle and Pint excursion de-

pends largely on wind conditions. Usually, the wind in Kingston comes from the southwest, making the open waters a little too rough for novice kayakers. “On those days we kind of stick into Anglin Bay,� he said. “We’ll paddle up towards the Rideau marina and then cross over to Bell Island Park and go along the shore there.� Luckily for our group, the wind came in from the north last Wednesday, resulting in uncharacteristically perfect conditions for paddling a little further out onto Lake Ontario. In just over an hour’s time, we made our way through Anglin Bay, under the causeway, past Fort Henry and RMC and over to Cedar Island, which marks the beginning of the Thousand Islands. One of the first things I noticed was what a great upper body workout kayaking is. For some reason, I was expecting it to be a breeze. It’s not, and as I write this a day and a half later my arm and chest muscles are still aching from two hours of near-continuous paddling. Still, the striking natural beauty of the area made it easy to forget about how tired I was. Though we were a mere kilometre or so from Kingston, it felt like we were deep in the country as we came into sight of the Thousand Islands stretching out before us. I also noticed what an amazingly unique feeling it was being seated so low and close to the water in the kayak – it almost feels as though you’re one with the lake. The paddling technique was quite easy to pick up, and within no time our group was moving along at a good pace. The conditions were calm and

quiet, and we found we could easily chat amongst ourselves as we paddled along. As we made our way over to Cedar Island, Franchetto told us some interesting facts about the area, many of which I was not aware of previously. He explained, for instance, that the geological formation of the area is called the Frontenac Arch, and that the Thousand Islands are in fact remnants of an ancient mountain chain that existed here a million years ago. “Now, all those islands act as a species migration corridor, so it has made it a very significant biological area because of its high biodiversity,� he said. “What we have is a lot of southern species at their northernmost limit and northern species at their southernmost limit. It’s a real mix.� In fact, the unique natural and cultural features of the Thousand Islands area are recognized globally. “Here we have a UNESCO world heritage site, which is the Rideau Canal, designated in 2007, within a UNESCO world biosphere reserve, [the Frontenac Arch], which was designated in 2002,� Franchetto explained. “There are very few designations as such worldwide, so we are extremely for-

tunate here in Kingston to have those two very important UNESCO designations.� After circling around Cedar Island, we made our way back to Douglas Fluhrer Park, which took another good hour. At last, it was then time for beer, and the eight of us made our way up to the Iron Duke pub on Wellington. “On the water we have the opportunity to chat a little bit and to introduce ourselves one another as to where we’re from and what we’re doing and so forth,� Franchetto said. “But once we’re sitting around a table there are a lot of other things that come into the mix - our occupations, outside interests, that sort of thing.� It was a pleasure to visit with my new friends over a pint, reflecting on our kayaking experience and sharing

details of our lives. Paddle and Pint is an experience I would do again in a heartbeat, and I would certainly recommend it to anyone looking for a little adventure close to home. “If anybody has friends or family coming into Kingston and they’re looking for something to entertain them with please, by all means we’d be happy to get them out on the water,� Jim added. “We really are fortunate here in the Kingston area to have such a great natural area at our disposal – Lake Ontario, the St. Lawrence River, the Rideau Canal and the Rideau Lakes. We at Trailhead encourage people to get out and play.� For more information on Paddle and Pint and all courses offered by Trailhead, please visit www.trailhead.ca.

The Odyssey to be performed in Kingston and Westport by travelling theatre company By Hollie Pratt-Campbell hpratt-campbell@theemc.ca

stage - will assist in creating the effect of a much larger cast: “We only have eight actors, so we wanted to use the audience, in a sense, as our suitors….Because the audience is on all four sides, everyone is much closer to the action, so we placed parts of the action among them in order for them to feel like they’re part of it.” At the heart of the play is the timeless and universal theme of home. “I think that no matter where we are, how old we are, or who we are, we all have this sense of what home means to us,” Smith says. “It’s a very potent, powerful thing. For some people it’s a physical thing, a place. For some people it’s an emotional thing that resonates, or it’s a person, it’s family. [The Odyssey] is about one man’s journey to recapture or reclaim that, to seek that out again.” Chafe’s adaptation also includes an increased focus on the character of Penelope, who is played by Sarah Gale in Driftwood’s production. She

remarks that it’s wonderful how in this central theme of The Odyssey. “I’ve case Penelope has a chance to share her been all over the world and can make half of the story as well, as normally my home anywhere, really – wherever everything centres around Odysseus. my family is is home.” “In this production, she gets a chance All performances of The Odyssey to say well what about me,” Gale says. begin at 7:30 p.m. Reserved seating “You’ve left me for 20 years and is available, and lawn chairs and something happened here while you blankets can also be reserved.

When it comes to timeless, epic stories, it’s hard to beat Homer’s The Odyssey. The tale of Odysseus’ adventure-filled journey home from the Trojan War to his wife, Penelope, has enthralled and delighted readers for centuries. On Aug. 9, Kingstonians will have the opportunity to see Canadian playwright Rick Chafe’s adaptation of the classical poem performed live in City Park by the Toronto-based Driftwood Theatre Group. On Aug. 8, the show will also be performed at the Cove Inn in Westport. “It’s a full adaptation of that story – the original Homer epic,” says director Jeremy Smith. “It’s got all of the great, wonderful, fantastical elements to it. You see the Cyclops and the sirens and the journeys of the sea. It has that sort of scope and scale and size to it, but at the same time it’s also this wonderful

and lovely storyteller’s story.” He notes that the props include, among other things, a 16-foot-tall puppet, six-headed monsters and a rendering of the sea. “It’s all done with very simple props and puppets,” he says. “It’s all very neat and theatrical and wonderful. When The Odyssey opens, Penelope has been waiting for Odysseus to return for 20 years, and is facing a group of 107 increasingly hostile suitors who are pressing her to make a decision as to which of them she will marry, as her husband is clearly not returning. Out of the blue, a stranger arrives who has witnessed Odysseus’ journeys, and offers to tell Penelope the story of what her husband has been through. Much of the play is thus a story-within-astory, as Penelope hears the stranger’s account. Smith explains that the style in which Driftwood’s stage is set – by which the audience is seated in a circle around the

Each year, thousands of patients who have received care at our hospitals express their appreciation through making a donation to UHKF. Rosemary McGowan is one such supporter. She lives an active life, playing tennis with her friends in the summertime and walking around her Brockville area neighbourhood. From her level of activity, there was very little indication last summer that she would soon need the specialized cardiac services available right here in Kingston. From time-to-time, she may have gotten a little winded, but as she says, “I think a 75-year-old woman who runs from one side of the court to the other to retrieve a ball is entitled to be a little breathless.â€? Her breathing would return to normal quickly, so she did not think much more about it until she took a walk one afternoon to deliver some notes to friends in her complex. “Suddenly my lungs were burning and I thought, ‘oh, I can’t walk that quickly.’ I sort of strolled home. The minute I stopped walking, I sat down and it went away,â€? she says. Thankfully, she mentioned the event to her family physician, who suggested that perhaps she had some angina. Her doctor ordered a stress test which resulted in her being sent to Kingston for an angiogram. *LYHQWKDW5RVHPDU\LVĂ€WDQGOHDGVDQDFWLYHOLIHVKHVD\VHYHU\RQHZDV surprised at the result of her angiogram. She was soon under the care of Dr. Paul Malik, Dr. Darrin Payne and the wonderful cardiac surgery program at Kingston General Hospital where she would undergo a quadruple bypass. Borrowing a line from one of her friends, Rosemary says, “I never met a grouch. There was never a nurse or anyone who attended me who was short or not fully committed. They were all friendly, kind and knowledgeable.â€? Don, her husband of 51 years, agrees, noting that the staff’s calm demeanor helps patients and family members through an intimidating time. “You have the sense that you are working with trained professionals who know what they are doing and who care about you,â€? he says. “We live in Brockville. It takes less than an hour to get to Kingston. To have a huge cancer centre and teaching hospital, we are lucky to be living so close.â€? ,QWHUHVWHGLQĂ€QGLQJRXWPRUHDERXWWKH+RQRXU$&DUHJLYHUSURJUDPLQ .LQJVWRQ¡VKRVSLWDOV"&DOOXVDWRUYLVLWZZZXKNIFD

Penny Gorman, architectural salvage artist, with one of her dioramas. excursions around the countryside. “The media is wide-ranging,” she says. “But it’s all recycled from salvage. It can’t be used for its original purpose. For example, wood trim, ceiling tin, lightning rod cable, barn board and vintage hardware.” Her most amazing creations are her dioramas, fish and trees. She makes beautiful and artistic trees using lightning rod wire. But that’s not always easily found these days. “The trees are some of the most popular things I make,” she said. “They take forever to make. For a while I was having trouble finding any lightning rod cable. The copper salvagers were getting it all. But I’ve sourced some now.” Canadian artist Bruce Sherman says that when he first looks at Gorman’s work it seems to follow a tradition that would classify it as folk art. “Perhaps, it is merely the fact that

the antique, weathered patina of the materials elicit a folksy connection,” says Sherman. “But as one looks past the surface of the work, one begins to perceive a deeper intrinsic quality which melds together whimsy and a highly selective and informed use of materials, and in an unexpected fashion. It is this fusion of Penny’s respect for the past with her always present but capricious sense of humour that separates and carries her works beyond the usual naivety and often awkward constructs evident in the world of pure folk art.” I met Penny several years ago at the Women’s Art Festival. She’s one of the pioneers in her field. Since then, I’ve seen greater use of salvaged items in artistic expression. For example, the entire proscenium arch of Broadway’s Brooks Atkinson Theatre was cleverly created from recycled and salvaged items for the Peter and the Starcatcher play. The arch, designed by Donyale Werle,

matched the theatre’s decor and the show’s theme (Peter Pan, mermaids, pirates). I didn’t realize the arch was created from recycled and salvaged components when I first saw the show. But during a second viewing several months later I noted that there was everything from old CDs making up the fins of mermaids to small and giant gears integrated into a whole that forms the frame of the stage.

two dogs. “Kate wants to help so much,” said Gorman. “She helps in the barn (the studio) a lot. We’re exploring painting together and she likes to hammer things. She’s slowed me down a bit, which is good. A diorama that used to take a week to do, takes me a lot longer now.” Settling in the country and having her own studio on site means she’s around home a lot. “When I was spending my time working all day with children, it wasn’t the time to have my own,” she said. “Now I can appreciate my daughter. I love to go for walks.” Gorman’s environment and values inspire her art. She’s got a solid appreciation of the past influencing the future. “I like to salvage items that hold memories of other lives, things that evoke certain nostalgia,” she said. “I use things that can no longer be used for their original purpose. Found objects are the creative starting point for items that become art for home and garden.” Gorman is surrounded by nature in her studio. Her workshop was created on the original 1851 homestead where she also lives. The past inspires her work. “Everything I touch has its own unique history,” she said. “The material is my inspiration, it has such character. One can easily imagine the history behind each piece and by incorporating it into my artwork I am continuing part of its story.” People can stand back and look at her art and think of times when everything seemed slower. “I try to have a sense of humor in there, too. I can’t be too serious.” She’s got a large stockpile of architectural material, collected from

EMC Lifestyle - Penny Gorman has turned the reclamation of no-longer-functional materials into an art. She’s an architectural salvage artist. She doesn’t just take any old item and re-use it. Gorman finds old pieces of architecture, objects that have a meaningful past, and gives them a creative future. She’s particularly fond of 19th century relics found in eastern Ontario rural settings. Her original background was in graphics, but it didn’t take long to realize that wasn’t for her. “Straight lines and me, they don’t mix,” she said. She then trained in early childhood education at St. Lawrence College. Following graduation, she moved to Alberta where she worked with special needs children for a number of years. She later worked in Rochester in the USA, where a job was created to utilize her specialized skills. “I needed a change,” she said. “I was trying to figure out what to do. I came from this area and my family was here so I knew I wanted to come back.” John Sorensen, who runs Ballycanoe & Company in Mallorytown, enjoyed restoring antiques and salvaging architectural parts and pieces so they could be used again. Penny Gorman had babysat Sorensen’s children years ago. She put her artistic skills to use at Ballycanoe. Sorensen found many items like a single shutter or a piece of metal railing could not be returned to their original use. He passed them on to Gorman and encouraged her artistic work. She set up her artistic world at Ballycanoe, where she still works part-time. She’s now got her own studio at Honeylocust Farm near Lansdowne. There’s also Kate, Gorman’s daughter, soon to turn three. And there are

The Frontenac EMC - Thursday, August 1, 2013 13


Local author’s short stories remember a simpler time EMC News - For James Tallon, local author and high school English teacher, the summer has always been a time of great possibility. As a young boy who spent the hotter months living at the fishing resort his family operated, the summer was a time for general rabble-rousing and mischief-making, innumerable adventures lying in wait. Now, Tallon uses his summer time off teaching to recall, retell, and write down all of these boyhood escapades from his youth. Running the Sheets, his debut short story collection, follows Tallon’s childhood at The Poplars resort in Newboro in the 1960s and 1970s. “It was just another time in terms of what was available for young people,” Tallon explains. “We had to make our own fun.” Some of the exploits in his collection include the humiliation of the annual summer haircut, falling in love with baby-sitters, playing cops and robbers, and running through the fresh laundry hanging outside to dry. “It sounds kind of silly when you compare it to what kids do today,” Tallon laughs. Even still, Tallon finds that adolescent boys compose one of his largest readerships.

FRANKLIN COACH & TOURS

“There is that sense of adventure,” he supposes. “I hope they read it and think, ‘I can relate to that.’” As a teacher, Tallon also hopes that the collection makes him seem more relatable. Certainly, several of the stories reveal a vulnerability and naiveté that most of his students may not recognize. “We do have lives, we do have pasts, we do have heartbreak,” Tallon says. “I’m hoping it makes their teachers a little more human.” Tallon began writing the collection in 2006 at the urging of his family, who always loved hearing his childhood stories around the dinner table. Tallon decided to begin writing before he started to forget. “This is essentially the highlights,” he explains. Some of his collection even includes stories that his father told him when he was a child. Tallon hopes that his children, teenagers now, will be soon be able to tell stories of their own. “I think every family should try to do that,” he says. “I think if you don’t tell the stories, they get lost.” Tallon plans to continue writing in the future, and has hopes for a sequel short story collection to follow Running the Sheets. He also has plans for a true crime research project based on Newboro history. James Tallon’s book is available through Novel Idea in downtown Kingston, at Stillwater Books and The Village Green in Westport, at The Poplars Resort in Newboro, as well as through Amazon online. More information about the author and the collection can be found on the James Tallon Facebook page. James Tallon enjoys spending the summer writing and remembering.

Thunderstorm proved two things – how dangerous they could be and how generous people really were Mary Cook

Columnist

editorial@theheritageemc.ca

EMC Lifestyles - Thunderstorms in the country terrified Mother. Sadly, that fear was passed on to me. We crouched in corners, but never on an outside wall, and always away from the telephone that hung on the kitchen wall. If it was a really horrific storm, I often took to hiding under a bed. Storms that struck through the night were especially frightening. The lightning lit up the entire countryside, and in the blackness of the night, rolling thunder roared, sounding like a gigantic train careening through our fields. It was not unusual for Mother to get all of us children out of our beds in the dead of night at the first sound of thunder or a flash of lightning. Father of course, slept through the entire storm. Seeing Mother sitting on a chair, away from any

window, the coal oil lamp lit on the bake table by the back door, did little to put my mind at ease. She sat with her purse clutched tightly in her arms, ready to make a dash outside should our old log house be struck by lightning. Where we would run to, I had no idea! The very thought of going outside into the raging storm was almost as frightening as shaking like a leaf inside, waiting for what I was sure was a fiery end to our lives. Mother constantly compared country storms with those she remembered from New York. With the heavy sounds of the city, storms there passed almost unnoticed. And the day lightning hit the pole that held our clothes line and followed it to the end pole, Mother nearly collapsed. My sister Audrey, whom I thought took storms much too lightly, said we should be grateful that the clothes line was free standing and not attached to the corner of the house! I knew what she meant. And then one summer day, when we had gone through a particularly long dry spell, the sky in the west darkened and

far off in the distance we could hear the rumble of thunder. We had finished our noon meal, and by the time we had redded up the kitchen, the storm was upon us. Father said he would just sit a spell. “No use going out in that rain,” he said, as he settled down in the rocking chair with the latest copy of the Family Herald and Weekly Star. “How can you sit there and read with that storm raging outside?” Mother wanted to know. Father never took his eyes off the paper. My brothers had absolutely no fear in a storm. In fact, it wasn’t unusual for them to stand at the kitchen window and watch the lightning streak out of the black clouds. Mother had settled in a chair against the inside wall between the kitchen and the downstairs bedroom, Audrey, busied herself with her embroidery work, and I was on a chair inches from Mother. The whole house shook with every clap of thunder, and the storm seemed to hover right overhead for a very long time. I prayed it would soon go away,

and follow the Bonnechere to another part of the valley. “Oh my God,” Emerson yelled. Everett yelled for Father to come quickly to the window looking out towards the west hill. Earl, the most timid of the three began to cry. I knew something terrible had happened. Father jumped from the rocker and ran to the west window; cautiously, Mother, Audrey and I followed. “The lightning,” Emerson stammered. “It hit the big maple on the hill,” Everett said. And underneath the tree, where 11 of our Holstein cows had gone for shelter, we saw what had happened. They looked like they had laid themselves down to rest in the summer heat. But I knew without asking what had happened. The cows were dead… killed by a lightning bolt that had struck the maple. I saw the stark horror on Father’s face, and Mother’s tear streaked cheeks, and I knew without a doubt that we would never recover the loss. What I saw next, once the storm had

blown itself out, was Father and the brothers, walking behind the team of horses, pulling the double whiffle tree and heading to the west hill. One by one the dead Holsteins were dragged to the gravel pit and buried. The news of our loss spread quickly through the community of Northcote. Father said it could have been worse. Our young heifers were in the enclosure close to the barn, and two cows, for their own reasons had decided to stay at the bottom of the hill. And as always happened when tragedy struck in our farm community, one by one, neighbours responded. I saw them walking down our long lane leading a heifer or a cow over to our farm almost completely replacing our loss with a simple shake of a hand and a few words. That’s how things were done in the ’30s. As well as our terrible loss, the lightning strike only confirmed in Mother’s mind that storms were not to be taken lightly, but treated as the real danger they could be, and sadly sometimes were.

Lake Plan done, water quality still No. 1 concern for SLPOA Reporter

R0012233730

EMC News — With the Lake Plan now completed, the goal this summer for newly-elected Sharbot Lake Property Owners Association President Kevin Browne is to “know where we’re going.� Browne was elected at the Annual General Meeting last week at Oso Hall in Sharbot Lake. “I need to step back for a little while and see if we can determine what would people like this organization to be,� he said. “We are hoping to get more people involved, especially young people.� Also on the executive for 2013 are Vice-President Ken Waller, Secretary-Treasurer Joyce Waller and East Basin member-at-large Ralph Pentland. The executive will be looking to fill the positions of environmental issues co-ordinator and West Basin member-at-large. There was considerable discussion on septic system re-inspection and Browne announced the creation of a working group that will be

comprised of nine individuals from Bob’s & Crow, Kennebec, Eagle, Long, Big Clear and Sharbot Lakes, along with support from Elbow and Big Gull Lakes. “There is a budget for voluntary inspection for about 40 systems,� Browne said. “It will be on a firstcome-first-served basis and residents will receive a letter from the Rideau Mississippi Septic Services. The executive also noted the First Annual Land O’Lakes Large and Smallmouth Bass Fishing tournament Aug. 17 on Loughborough, Desert, Kashwakamak, Big Gull and Sharbot Lakes. As the central location, Browne said “there will be a lot of boats on Sharbot Lake� that day. There were also discussions on “no wake� signs and loon nests. The SLPOA is prepared to host another loon platform building seminar if there is sufficient interest. But the star of the show was the Sharbot Lake Lake Plan Report. “This is a 2012 snapshot of what the lake is like right now,� said past president Carol Coupland, who was instrumental in getting the plan com-

pleted and printed. “It will be a baseline for what it’s going to look like in five, 10 years.� She said the No. 1 priority for residents on the lake remains water quality and the “two biggest factors in water quality are septics and vegetation.� Caleb Yee of the Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority said he’s looking for volunteers to help with his invasive species study done in conjunction with the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters. “We’re looking at zebra mussel larvae and spiny water fleas,� he said. “We have the kits and all you have to do is drive out in the lake in your boat, throw the net over, take a sample, add alcohol to it and send it New President Kevin Browne fields a question at the Sharbot Lake Property Owners Association Annual General Meeting last weekend in Sharbot Lake. to us.� Photo/Craig Bakay He said they’re looking for one volunteer from each lake in the area and the best way to contact him is by email monitoring@ mvc.on.ca.

Summertime at the Cottage

The Cottage By Me (Circa 1985) Near a storybook town, at the bottom of a hill, hidden by a forest, sits a cottage. A clean tidy cottage surrounded by trees, filling each visitor with memorable

impressions of summertime. It has its own special civilization touched only by the changing seasons. During the day, the sun shines rewarding the faithful bathers basking in the sun. Skipping across the lake, water-skiers race by as swimmers plunge towards the shore to avoid an accident. The olive green water laps onto the shoreline, splashing the bathers. A man in a small rowboat tosses a line to persuade a fish to nibble. The days are long and blissful until the sun goes down and night approaches. All is still. The fire burns and the hazy smoke climbs high into the trees. Orange glows appear in the darkness as the cottagers settle down at their sites to socialize by the fire. Nearby the lake waits while the stars dance on its surface. The flushed red moon glows in the east casting a veil of shimmering beams and the ebony sky encircles the smoldering fire. Occasionally interrupting this crisp clean scene are crickets and perhaps a loon echoing a familiar tune. Here the night is a mystical display of nature, the sky a splendid arrangement of everything pure and fresh. I remember this cottage fondly as it sits at the bottom of its hill and awaits our return.

The cottage, from the cute boy down the way to toasted s’mores dripping with melted chocolate. Pack a bag, don’t look back and soak up all the summer offerings. Given that we live by the lake, summertime gets busy at our little cottage. Visiting friends and family pour in. So I often need to quickly whip something together with very little notice. Let’s face it: salsa is everyone’s favorite summer condiment. I found these perfect salsa recipes for you to devour. There are so many ways to enjoy it. I’ve included a few different options to spice up this basic salsa.

EMC Lifestyle - I love cottage life. Those lazy days of summer, lounging on the deck with a good book, and long evenings spent noshing on delectable nibbles with good company. We all have our favorite cottage life memories. It’s a different world, where real-time collides with past and present. Some of my best childhood moments have been at the cottage. Friends were cousins or the kids from down the way. It’s a place where all the rules to go out the door, except the “water rules”. You bathed in the lake and everything you ate had a healthy dose of sunscreen and bug spray for extra flavour. Today, we live in the country and minutes from the lake. We are blessed to have cottage life so close to home. What are your favorite cottage memories? Was it the moment your wobbly legs held you up on water skis until you fist pumped, then plummeted and were left gulping up half the lake? Perhaps it was when a boy asked you to go “steady” all summer long? Let’s face it, when you are young, life after summer really doesn’t exist. My favourite memories are of the loon’s lullaby as it sang me to sleep and the heat of the fire as I toasted marshmallows. I recall a particular cottage I would often visit in my youth. Recently, I stumbled upon a creative writing piece that I wrote about this special place. I am not sure if it is because my birthday is this week and I am feeling old, but when I discovered it the memories came flooding back. I thought I would share it with you. I can only hope that my daughter spends her summertime making memories that will last her a lifetime.

Busy Island Mayor Talks About County and Local Issues… By Margaret Knott Correspondent

EMC News- Frontenac Islands Mayor Denis Doyle keeps up a busy pace with meetings at the County, on the Islands, with the city and of course with certain provincial departments and officials. Howe Island Transportation: In a recent update of activities, Mayor Doyle spoke first about that island’s transportation study in the hands of AECOM. The study’s purpose is to assist the township in Howe Island long term transportation planning. Most recently the mayor and members of council met with AECOM to review the consultant’s findings to date and to prepare for a public meeting on Howe Island to discuss the study outcomes sometime in August… Wolfe Island Rink: Mayor Doyle spoke hopefully about the $75,000 Trillium Grant applied for by Wolfe Island’s Community Centre Board. “I was asked to sign more papers recently, a positive sign, Maybe,” he said. “We hope to hear if it is ap-

proved in early August. IF it is approved it will be a great addition to the money already in the rink roof fund, thanks to all the fund raising efforts and hard work of so many Islanders over the years including Music Fest, Hockeyville organizers and so many others..” Then Mayor Doyle noted that the Project Manager Patrick Thompson continues to prepare for the construction tendering process. “He recently had a design engineer over to the island to finalize the plans and do a site inspection. Councillor Grant, Paul Hogan, Glen Mossier, Steve Fargo, and I also met with Patrick and the engineer July 22nd, and are impressed with how well the project is going.” Mayor Doyle pointed out that Council has agreed that taxes will not be increased for this project to go ahead, and, ”we are still hopeful that final approval will be given for solar panels on the roof, in which case we could make money on the rink operation,” he said. High Praise for Volunteers- Mayor Doyle was enthusiastic in his praise of the many willing and dedicated

volunteers in the township, in this instance those maintaining the flower beds and equipment around the Wolfe Island Information Centre and the Town Hall, as well as the flower containers at the Wolfe Island ferry dock and other community facilities, and on going efforts at the Centre Street Community Garden on Centre Street. He noted made by MTO at the Wolfe Island ferry dock of the new shelter, benches and flower containers. “And last, but not least, a big Thank You on behalf of the Community to the volunteers who run the WI Tourist Centre and the Old House Museum Wolfe Island and to all of Frontenac Islands dedicated volunteers. Our Council feels so fortunate to have so many people willing to pitch in and help. “ What’s Up at Frontenac County: Mayor Doyle had this to say… “Deputy Mayor Jones and I continue to be very active at County Council. We are pushing hard to complete a County Service Delivery and Organization Review important for all taxpayers.” KPMG was selected as the consultant to carry out the review, and Doyle

interviews they plan to carry out” he concluded. Around Town: * A recent summer service at Wolfe Island’s Christ Church Anglican (15th line) included a visit by their Bishop, the Rt. Rev. Michael Oulton, who dedicated a new stained glass window for the church created by WI artist Linda Sutherland, and given by the Pearl and Sherman in memory of their son Pernell. *Another summer Anglican Sunday Worship Service was held on Simcoe Island at the home of Duncan and Judy MacDougal on July 21st.

was appointed by county council as Project Manager, the prime day to day contact for KPMG. A kick off meeting for the Project was held July 22nd with project completion expected by mid-December. “At a high level this project is for County Council and by Council, who want to ensure that those who pay for, and use the services that Frontenac County provides, are getting value for their money, the services they want and need, and that activities and programs no longer required are eliminated. My business experience tells me that it is important from time to time that all businesses bring in someone from the outside to determine what efficiencies can be implemented and what best practices can be used to reduce costs and improve services.” Doyle said. Mayor Doyle made the point that Kingston receives (and pays for) approximately 80% of the services provided by Frontenac Paramedic Services, and 60 % of the Fairmount Home services. “ As our biggest customer I have asked the Consultant to include representatives from the city in the one on one

Canadian Guitar Festival features stellar lineup this weekend By Craig Bakay Reporter

people will know who he is (Crary’s 1994 Jammed If I Do album featuring guests like Tony Rice and Doc Watson remains a classic) and we’ve also got Tony McManus, who’s generally regarded as the world’s best Celtic guitarist.” Spoken word legend Holmes Hooke returns as emcee and he’ll be welcoming such crowd favourites as Welsh legend Gareth Pearson, Canadian phenom Calum Graham and Ed Gerhard. Local music lovers will probably take note of Suzie Vinnick & Rick Fines, who have played sold-out shows at The Crossing Pub in Sharbot Lake. R0012234175

EMC News — To a certain extent, The Canadian Guitar Festival is one of Frontenac County’s best-kept secrets, and for the ninth annual edition coming up Aug. 2-4 at Loughborough Lake Holiday Park on Sydenham Road, eight kilometres north of the 401, organizer/ guru Del Vezeau would like to let that secret out to local music aficionados. “What we need now is local support,” he said. “Most of our audiences have come from out of town in the past — the U.S., Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa — but economic conditions elsewhere

have an effect on travel plans. “Come out, take a chance, I’d be baffled and surprised if you don’t like it.” For the uninitiated, the festival is a two-fold approach for the most part. During the day on Saturday, there are workshops and an open mike. On Sunday, the Canadian Fingerstyle Championship competition is featured, with some of the world’s (that’s right world’s) best young fingerpickers competing. In the evenings, the focus shifts to a concert format showcasing “amazing artists and their art,” Vezeau said. “For example, we were very pleased to get Dan Crary this year. Bluegrass

And of course co-founder Don Ross will again be headlining Friday night’s show and will then join McManus, Crary and Italian flatpicker Beppe Gambetta for a Men of Steel concert Saturday night. All in all, between the workshops, competition and performances, you’ll get to see a whole lot of things you would have never thought possible done on acoustic (and amplified acoustic) guitars. Loughborough Lake Park features un-serviced sites for tenting and RVs on 48 acres, as well as a fine beach and child-friendly play area. There are food

services available for the festival and once again the $20-at-cost lobster dinner will be featured. The main performance venue is a 10,000 square-foot Quonset-style hall and you bring your own chair. There will also be a draw to win one of three Washburn Rover guitars in support of Hospital Atilan in Guatemala. There are day passes, a weekend pass and weekend passes with camping available. For more information, visit www.canadianguitarfestival.com. By the way, the website says that if it’s your birthday, let them know and your ticket is free.

TOWNSHIP OF SOUTH FRONTENAC RECYCLIng COLLECtIOn sCHEDuLE CHAngE Effective September 1, 2013 the recycling collection schedule will change for some South Frontenac residents. The change involves the alternating schedule in which there will be two consecutive ‘Yellow – Paper etc.’ weeks. The August schedule for the ‘Central’ side of the Recycling calendar ends on a ‘Yellow’ week and then the new September schedule begins on a ‘Yellow’ week as well. This change will simplify and make the recycling schedule more efficient for our residents. So, as of September 1st all South Frontenac residents will be on the same schedule and this should eliminate any confusion residents may have about which side of the calendar they should be viewing. The new 2013-2014 Recycling Calendar is viewable on our website and also can be picked up at our Public Works office at 2490 Keeley Rd during business hours. Questions or Concerns? Call Facilities & Solid Waste at 613-376-3900 X4330.

CIVIC HOLIDAY – MOnDAY August 5 gARBAgE sCHEDuLE Residents who would normally have their Garbage picked up on Monday August 5th (Civic Holiday) will have their pick up rescheduled for Tuesday August 6th. Residents are advised to follow their regular scheduled day for garbage and recycling pick-ups for the remainder of the week.

sYDEnHAM FOOtBALL FIELD REPAIRs All residents and user groups are advised that the Sydenham Football Field at The Point will be closed down for much needed remedial work during July and August. Your cooperation during the maintenance process would be appreciated. PLEASE STAY OFF THE FIELD DURING THIS TIME.

1959 Olds hardtop “fun to build but not to drive” EMC Lifestyle - Alan Thomas of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, writes: “Hi Bill: In 2006 I was driving between Saskatoon and Edmonton when I saw a 1959 Oldsmobile 2-door hardtop parked with a lot of old cars beside the road at a truck stop at Paynton. The car was rough but rare and I always like a challenge so I bought it. “Well, it caused quite a bit of joking from my neighbours. The Olds had sat beside a field since 1980. The car was full of grain and mouse poop right up to the top of the doors and the headliner was on top of the seats. The frame and glass were there but the grass had eaten away the side panels to above the wheel wells at the back. The motor was a 371 cubic inch Olds but it was seized. “I was afraid of the dust from the mouse excrements so the first thing I did was fill the car with water and then shoveled everything out of the car. The floors were mushy so I changed all the floor. The window rollers had rusted away so I took them apart and made new ones. I cut the quarter panels off above the wheel wells. The task now was to build the quarters with nothing to go by. I made the rear wheel openings by looking at a picture. The panels were bent on my knee.

This 1959 Olds 2-door hardtop has been restored in white and gold by Alan Thomas of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan “I tried everything to get the motor unstuck but gave up and found a high-output 394 cubic inch out of a 1964 Olds Starfire. Wrong for my car but had lots of go. I was able to use the HydraMatic transmission that came with the car. Next came the interior. About the only thing usable were the seat springs which I sanded

and painted. I then contacted the good folks at J. C. Whitney in LaSalle, lllinois, who made the upholstery, headliner, and carpet. I then added some chrome from an Olds 98 and the inside was done. “The car was green and white but I wanted it gold and white. The gold I used was the colour of the Prowler. After two years of work,

the car was rolled out for cruise weekends here in Saskatoon. It was an instant hit with people asking ‘What is it?’ Last year I traded it for a MG kit car that fits in my garage, which the Olds never did. The Olds was a fun car to build but not to drive. Too big for today’s traffic and too big for my yard.” I’m always looking for more

stories. Email billtsherk@sympatico.ca or write Bill Sherk, 25 John St., P.O. Box 255, Leamington, ON N8H 3W2. Everyone whose story is published in this column will receive a free autographed copy of my latest book: “OLD CAR DETECTIVE FAVOURITE STORIES, 1925 to 1965.”

HOROSCOPES

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 – Aries, a challenge arises that requires you to have the utmost confidence in your abilities. Some self-confidence and hard work are all you need to successfully tackle this challenge. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 – Taurus, you can choose from among many paths, but this week you will have to carefully think about which way to go. Otherwise you may end up having to backtrack and start over. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 – Gemini, unless you change your line of thinking, you may have trouble in the romance department this week. You don’t have to be a smooth operator, but just sweeten your sentiments. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 – Cancer, sometimes you like being the center of attention, and other times you are content to blend into the background. This week you will have to embrace the spotlight. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 – Leo, after letting things slide for awhile, you will need to get a better handle on your finances this week. If you feel as though things have gotten out of control, then talk to a professional. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 – Issues at work may have you contemplating a career change, Virgo. But you may want to hold off on changes for a little while longer until things settle down. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 – A quick visit with family can make you feel refreshed and renewed, Libra. There is nothing like spending time with the ones you love to improve your mood. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 – Scorpio, catch up on some overdue health screenings. There has never been a better time to get these things done, and you don’t want to put your health on the back burner. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 – Sagittarius, there is only so much persuading you can do before you must let others choose their own paths. A difficult conversation has you second-guessing something. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 – Do something for yourself this week, Capricorn. It’s a good time to treat yourself before you must devote more of your time to others in the near future. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 – Aquarius, something has been on your mind but you just can’t put your finger on it. Forget about it for awhile, and you just may come to a realization. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 – Few things that escape your notice this week, Pisces. Always detail-oriented, you need to figure out how to use the information.

Local singer/songwriter Megan Hamilton returns with new EP And, the release of Snow Moon is only the beginning, as next year Hamilton plans on reuniting with Bryson to produce a full-length album. “We’ll be recording back at Zane’s studio over the winter” she says, noting that the creative juices have been flowing since she started writing music again earlier this year, and that she will undoubtedly have more than enough material to use. “Jim has brought up the possibility of also revisiting [some of Snow Moon’s songs],” Hamilton adds. “We’ll see what we decide to do.” Snow Moon will be released Aug. 6 on the Bandcamp website, located at www.bandcamp. com. For a few days, the album will sold be on a pay what you can basis, and following that it will be available on iTunes. A physical EP copy of Snow Moon is also available in limited quantities from Hamilton’s website, www. meganhamiltonmusic.com. More information can be found at the above website or on the Megan Hamilton Facebook page. A local CD release show will be held at The Grad Club Sept. 14.

EMC Lifestyle - It has been four years since singer/songwriter Megan Hamilton released her last album, See Your Midnight Breath in the Shipyard. During that time, she moved to Kingston (from Toronto), got married, had a baby, and took a break from recording music. This summer, Hamilton is back with a new EP called Snow Moon, which features three original songs: I Paved My Way with Pennies, I’ve Always Wanted to Visit Seattle and Tuesdays are the Loneliest Nights. “It was good to get back into the studio and back into feeling creative again – not just like a mom,” she remarks. Hamilton describes her musical style as “eclectic folk rock”. “There’s a lot of texture and a lot of underlying interesting stuff that holds everything together, like a through-line,” she explains. Recorded by Zane Whitfield at the North of Princess Recording Studio, Snow Moon features a slightly different sound from Hamilton’s previous albums; the departure is largely due to the addition of two new musicians, Danielle Lennon on violin and Alison Gowan on double bass, as well as Ottawa-based producer Jim Bryson, who has played with wellknown acts like Kathleen Edwards, The Tragically Hip and Sarah Harmer in addition to releasing several records of his own. “It was great to work with Jim,” Hamilton says. “He just walked in and was the obvious immediate leader, which I really appreciated because I find typically I have to do a lot of the stuff by myself. It’s great to let somebody else take the reins. He has a lot of interesting ideas and added a We Captured new direction with the songs.” Adding a violin to the mix has also the Moment been a pleasant new experience. and Now you “I don’t think I’ve ever been so can Keep the close to a violin [before Danielle Memory! and I started practicing together]” Hamilton says. “I’d never listened to the real sonic qualities of it…There’s something so immediately visceral about it – it’s almost like a human 8x10 - $10 voice.” She notes that recording the album 5x7 - $7.50 was a positive experience for everyone Call us for Details 613.546.8885 involved thanks to the excellent camaraderie among the artists: “It’s been really awesome working with Danielle and Alison. They’re both really positive people - they have ideas, do their work and they’re fun to hang out with. All those things are really important when you’re playing music.” Over the next few months, Hamilton and her band will play a number of shows throughout Ontario including Owen Sound, Windsor, Toronto and of course, Kingston. She remarks that the idea of touring feels quite a bit different now that she is a mom, as leaving her 22-month-old daughter, Audrey, for more than a few days at a time is not an appealing option. “We’re doing weekends – that’s usually the best time to play anyway in terms of getting audiences out,” Hamilton notes.

Drive-in theatre hopes their screens won’t go dark By Kelly Reid Correspondent

EMC Events - Dan Wannemacher and his staff at Kingston Family Fun World are currently facing a major industry revolution: Hollywood studios are turning away more and more from 35mm film. Most major motion pictures these days are being filmed digitally. As such, movie theatres must use a digital projector to screen them. The drivein at Kingston Family Fun World, which has been operational since 1966, still uses old-fashioned reel projectors on its three screens. “For our industry, changing over is very elaborate and expensive. It basically means throwing all our equipment away,” explains Fun World owner Wannemacher. To convert all three projectors to digital would mean a cost to the business of around $250,000. “The chains have gotten their projectors 85 per cent paid for by the film companies,” Wannemacher explains, noting that as an independent theatre, his drive-in doesn’t qualify for any subsidies. “They weren’t thinking of drive-ins for sure and they weren’t contemplating the small towns,” Wannemacher goes on. “But right now if we want to stay in business, we have no choice.” Now, Kingston Family Fun World is looking to the Kingston community for support in helping their movie business stay open. Its current aim is to raise enough money to convert its main screen to a digital projector in time for the 2014 season. “Our goal is to raise $80,000

for Screen One to get lit. It needs the biggest and most powerful projector,” Wannemacher says. He hopes that the other screens will be converted sometime after 2014. “We have to do baby steps,” he says. In order to raise the money, Kingston Family Fun World will be having a “Go Digital or Go Dark” event night. Movie tickets and food will be sold for $2. Rates for go-karting, the batting cages, and other attractions will also be reduced in combination with a movie ticket purchase. The park will also be having a silent auction, with all proceeds going towards the digital campaign. Though Wannemacher isn’t sure yet which movies will be shown, he does promise that there will be both a blockbuster as well as something family friendly. Though some folks have provided donations to the campaign, Wannemacher wants to raise the money through sales on food and attractions. For the Go Digital or Go Dark event, Wannemacher hopes to see 2,000 people show up to participate. “We’re not a charity and we don’t ever want to be a charity,” Wannemacher hastens. “Our hands are tied. Fun World can survive without the drive-in, but it would be psychologically depressing to come out here and see the screens black.” Go Digital or Go Dark will take place at Kingston Family Fun World on Aug. 14 from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. For more information, visit www.funworldpark.com or call 613-544-8784.

2014 Mazda6: Change for more than change’s sake My GT tester with the technology option package came in at $34,195 (prices before destination, dealer prep, licensing, taxes, or purchase incentives). For a main-stream mid-sized, mid-$30K sedan it comes with everything you’d expect and a few things you wouldn’t, such as: 19” alloy wheels, HID headlamps with auto dimming and leveling, rain-sensing wipers, voice-activated navigation with a 5.8” colour screen, power glass moon-roof, and a lane-departure warning system just to cover the highlights. Of course the 6 is powered by Mazda’s SKYACTIV technology in the form of a 2.5L four-cylinder gasoline engine putting out 184 HP and 185 ft/lb of torque. Both manual and automatic transmission choices are six-speed and the auto box is available with paddle-shifters. Later this year a 2.2 L turbo-charged diesel option will be available. Mazda started with a clean design slate for the 6 and exterior looks are bold and attractive. Inside, the cabin has the fit and finish not usually found in nonluxury brands. Quality seat and soft-trim materials welcome you

into a great cabin with an easyto-get-to-know instrument panel and control system. Road noise is limo-quiet and a well-tuned front and rear suspension combined with light alloy 19” wheels, kept things smooth but connected, even on summer road-construction surfaces. Online acceleration may not be V6 or turbo-charged-snappy, but highway legal road speeds were obtained quickly, passing was confident, and the transmission shifts spot on. Few drivers moving from a V6 power-plant into the 6 will miss the pain at the pump that Mazda’s SKYACTIVE technology relieves. Mazda’s boasting a section leading 5.1 L/100 km highway and 7.6 L/100 km city (55.4 and 37.2 mpg). The EPA in the U.S. rates the 6 at 48.0 mpg highway Cucumbers, Beans and 33.6 mpg Fresh Produce city (converted to imperial Arriving Daily! gallons). The 6’s 62 L tank should deliver a

900 km range according to NRCan ratings (in a 50/50 mix of highway and city driving) and cost around $74 to fill at $1.30/L. A good portion of these results are due to Mazda using a regenerative-brake system which create electricity for storage in a very efficient capacitor. This allows the engine to be freed of parasitic belt-pulley loads as the capacitor can recharge the vehicle’s battery and power various electrical accessories. This system, which Mazda calls i-ELOOP holds the promise of expanded use in other vehicles and their components. Safety is well enhanced in the 6 with Mazda’s ‘technology package’ which includes automatic highbeam lamp control, lane departure and front object warning systems, radar cruise control, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and smart city brake support. These use various sensors in the front and rear of the vehicle to extend the driver’s sight-reach and improve reaction times and in the case of smart city braking, the 6 will apply

EMC Lifestyle - The vehicles I road-test for these reviews (yes it’s a tough job, but I’m willing to make sacrifices) come from two main sources: press fleets owned by the Canadian head offices of the manufacturers and local dealerships. I prefer to use dealership units whenever possible because they more closely represent the trim and equipment level that you or I shop for, whereas press fleets are made up of fully loaded higher-end models. If you are interested in learning more about any of these vehicles, check out the manufacturers’ websites or better yet, call your local dealership and speak to one of their knowledgeable staff. It’s the ultimate in interactive information gathering. The Mazda6 I enjoyed for this review came from the friendly folks at Kanata Mazda in Ottawa. Mazda Canada launched their all-new flagship sedan, the Mazda6 at the Montreal Auto Show earlier this year. I had a chance recently to take one out for a brief run and wasn’t disappointed. To start, the 6 comes in three trim levels and the price tape begins at $24,495.

the brakes for you to minimize the risk of colliding with a stopped or slower vehicle ahead in stop and start commuter driving. On the upkeep side an air filter runs about $31, front brake pads and rotors are $172 and $104 respectively, and a dealership oil change will cost around $60. The P225/45R19 tires my tester was equipped with are currently available from a small selection of tire-makers and range from $200 to $375 each. The mid-sized sedan market is a major one in our area and very crowded with able competitors. The launch of the 2014 Mazda6 shows Mazda is serious about being a player in this game. While the demographic for this type of vehicle can be wide and varied, one general statement that is allowable is that these buyers are experienced and looking for a higher level of comfort, performance, safety and driveability in their rides. The Mazda6 delivers. Yours in service, Brian Turner
