Frontenac County establishes fund for Kingston-Frontenac Renovates program By Craig Bakay Reporter

Gazette News — Frontenac County has decided to divert funds from its Discretionary Residency Benefit Program surplus (anticipated to be $87,176) to a new reserve designated for the KingstonFrontenac Renovates program. In an address to Council, Sheldon Laidman, Kingston director of housing, the agency that administers KingstonFrontenac Renovates, said that “after 2015, if the city were the only ones funding this program, then it would be just for the city. “But if the County contributes, we would still be willing to administer the program for County residents.� Laidman said that the program re-

ceived a one-time funding source of $1.1 million from the Province but that was expected to run out by 2015. “(But) from an overall situation, we want to make sure that we use all the provincial funds to their utmost and before we start using municipal funds,� he said. Under the Kingston-Frontenac Renovates program, residents who meet the lower-income requirements (currently $26,500 for a single person household, $45,000 for a fourperson household), can apply for up to $10,000 for home renovation of things like new roofs, fire safety, water quality, septic quality, well drilling or accessibility. The loan is forgivable after 10 years, provided the recipient(s) lives in the home as their principle residence for 10 years. The

BAR / CHAIN COMBO SAVE $50

assessed value of the property in question cannot exceed $250,000. Other requirements include proof of income, MPAC assessment, and proof of paidup property taxes. Laidman said that so far, 80 per cent of a $200,000 fund has gone to County residents. Coun. John McDougall, who sits on the joint city-county homelessness committee and has been an active participant in that area, said the Renovates program is a lot more pertinent to County residents than the various homelessness programs more geared towards City residents. “The issue of housing and homelessness is different in the county than in the city,� McDougall said. “The uptake of this program has been dramatic. “In the County, single-family housing

is where the need is and this program is our ‘affordable housing’ program.� McDougall said that in the urban environment, agencies have the “advantage� of seeing “who’s in the shelters every night.� In the rural setting, where there are no shelters, things are different. “We do have an issue but it’s hidden,� he said. “In the country, people are often ‘couch-surfing’ and there is no support for kids. “Often, this component for home repair is what makes the difference.� Coun. Gary Davison also spoke in favour of the funding move. “I support that we continue this program,� Davison said. “I know a lot of people need it and we would be remiss if we did not support it.�

Frontenac County wondering what to do with provincial grant By Craig Bakay Reporter

Gazette News — Frontenac County Council is wondering what to do with $46,426 the Ministry of the Environment awarded the County as part of a $13.5 million Source Protection Municipal Implementation Fund grant. There is also a provision for an additional $15,000 through collaboration with one or more municipalities. South Frontenac Township was also awarded $64,445 to implement source water protection planning with a particular focus on the protection of Sydenham Lake, which is the hamlet of Sydenham’s drinking water source. “We’re still trying to determine how to use this funding in the townships,” said Manager of Sustainability Planning Joe Gallivan at last week’s regular County Council meeting in Glenburnie. “We did not apply for it (and) North, Central and the Islands didn’t receive any funding.” According to the provincial contract, the County will have up until Dec. 11, 2015 to use these funds for any of the eligible funding activities, he said. But, to be eligible to receive these funds, the MOE must have a signed copy of the funding agreement returned no later than Dec. 11, 2013. “Therefore it is necessary for County Council to endorse this receipt of funding as soon as possible,” he said. Which, of course, County Council did. But it was not without some reservations.

“I was on a committee of 17 people since 2009 where we looked at source water protection in every system — Cataraqui, Quinte, Rideau,” said Coun. Gary Davison. “This has been done to death at a very high level.” “And they’re giving it to us again,” said Dep. Warden Bud Clayton. ••• County Council received its Sustainability Advisory Committee report for 2013 at its regular meeting last week in Glenburnie as well as the Sustainable Actions booklet, but at least one member of Council wanted to see some whittling action done on the list of proposed activities. “We need to clear some of this,” said Coun. Gary Davison. “The list just keeps getting longer and we have to keep carrying them over.” Committee member Geoff Sandiford defended the document, saying: “we can’t really stop or gate the ideas that keep coming in from the grassroots level. “There are lists in other jurisdictions longer than this.” ••• Frontenac County officially split the CAO/ Clerk’s job into two positions at its regular meeting last week in Glenburnie and named current Dep. Clerk Jannette Amini to the Clerk’s position, effective when a new CAO is appointed. Also, the positions of CAO and Treasurer will hold the title of Deputy Clerk to ensure that there will be a clerk in attendance at every County Council meeting in accordance with the Municipal Act.

Specimen collection service begins at Wolfe Island Clinic locally. Frontenac County Paramedical Services as well as staffing the island’s ambulance unit offers a Wellness Clinic at the WI Clinic. This week, the WI Clinic Board in cooperation with Life Labs has announced that a long awaited Specimen Collection Centre will begin operating at the Wolfe Island Community Medical Clinic the first and third Friday morning’s of each month from 8 am to 10 am. “We reached agreement with Lifelabs, to run a Collection Centre two day’s a month,” Clinic Board member Hugh Cowan said. “Our first session will be on Friday, December 6th from 8:00 to 10:00 am.

working with them on this proposal for the future. 5. Councillor Springgay noted in the discussion regarding Simcoe Islands - 9Mile Point Lighthouse with the group hoping to preserve it, that if fundraising is inadequate to maintain it, it will fall to the township. “We have to be prepared.” Mayor Doyle spoke of the project in terms of ‘who does what’ as per the Historical Society and the Township. He requested a copy of the application that was submitted to DFO by the Lighthouse Preservation committee. and requested the application that was submitted to DFO by the Lighthouse preservation group. 6. The township will attempt to comply with terms of accessibility act, establish a township policy, identify a reserve fund and seek assistance from the County. 7.

but there are a lot of people who have a number of blood-lab work procedures done each year suggesting things like diabetes, etc. Obviously, not all of those 600 people will use the Collection Centre over here (on the island) but we hope a significant number will, to make it successful,” he said. “And if and when numbers justify it, there is some flexibility to extend the hours the collection centre will operate. “We believe avoiding having to get into a lab in Kingston for 8am while fasting, will be seen as a major benefit, not to mention an overall reduction in ferry use,” Cowan concluded. Interesting to note, the Township continues to keep the needs of its isolated seniors (housing , health & social) in mind in its planning and budgetary processes. The WI Clinic Board continues to look for other portable medical services, seeing this approach to Health Care, close to home, as easier on the patient, reducing cars on the ferry, wait times at hospital Emergency and Urgent Care facilities in Kingston, admissions and health care costs. This approach may well be the best way to provide medical and health services in all isolated rural communities in the future. Frontenac Islands Council News Notes: 1. Contrary to what you may have heard the Township will plough SNOW as required, when required, night or day as always. 2.The Township is considering a resolution to Frontenac County to release ALL the Federal Gas Tax money, both current and past years to the Townships. 3.

County OP undergoes number of changes for second draft Gazette News — Planner Joe Gallivan presented the County of Frontenac Official Plan — Second Draft to County Council at its regular meeting last week in Glenburnie and the second version contains substantial changes from the first, based on public feedback and suggestions from the townships, including South Frontenac’s Planner Lindsay Mills. “Many useful suggestions have been provided and have resulted in the majority of the changes to the plan,� Gallivan said. “And they reflect the need to have a regional plan, rather than a prescriptive plan.� He said the changes can be summarized by three categories: More discretionary wording — the County Plan contains policy direction for cross-jurisdictional issue that County Council may choose to act upon in the future, based on needs and resources. Therefore, some of the actions words have been changed from “will� and “shall� to “may,� “could� or “might.� This will allow Council flexibility in determining what planning issues should be prioritized and also recognizes that the Plan has a 20-year vision and that priorities will likely have to be adjusted over time. Details moved to appendices — The Natural Heritage mapping system is now in Appendix 1 as it is very general in nature and is intended to serve as a high level illustration of the linkages of systems throughout the Frontenacs, the list of trout lakes currently “at capacity� is in Appendix 2 and the scope of the work that would be required as part of an environmental impact study (which is sometimes needed as part of a development proposal) are now in Appendix 3. In all three cases, he said, the move to COACH & TOURS the appendices will allow for the information to be kept up to date and revised without the need for a formal Official Plan Amendment.

these types of policies are better placed in township Official Plans. As a result, a number of sections have been revised to reflect this regional perspective including agriculture, mineral aggregates, archaeological resources, wetlands and significant areas of natural and scientific interest. Also, two new maps have been added showing the Algonquin Land Claim and Frontenac Arch Biosphere Reserve, he said. “There will be a meeting Dec. 4 (at the regular committee of the whole meeting including township planning staff) to go into this in detail,� he said. “After Dec. 4, I’d like to make a submission to the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing. “I’m recommending no further public meetings until the formal meeting under the Planning Act in May.�

SFCSC Annual auction adds unique new items in hopes of raising more money By Mandy Marciniak

mmarciniak@theheritageemc.ca

Gazette Events – This year’s Southern Frontenac Community Services Corporation (SFCSC) auction is going to be bigger and better than ever thanks to some very generous local artists. As an added feature to this year’s live auction, hand-painted Adirondack chairs will be up for bid. The idea came from SFCSC board member Nona Mariotti, who did the same kind of fundraiser in 2007 with the Kingston Grandmother Connection. “I thought it was great and it was really successful so I brought the idea to [SFCSC] with the thought of doing benches, but the artists themselves chose which they would like to do so we ended up with 13 chairs and seven benches,” explained Mariotti. The annual auction, which is now in its seventh year, is something that the community in South Frontenac looks forward to each year. It is a great event for socializing and starting your Christmas shopping. Last year the event expanded significantly as it moved to the Grace Centre and the evening became not only an auction, but also a night of drink sampling, appetizers and art. “The new additions last year were a great success,” said Kathryn

O’Hara who runs Fund Development and Promotions for SFCSC. “It was really popular and this year we have expanded it further to include a lot of local artisan food producers. We have Seed to Sausage coming for the first time and Kingston Olive Oil Company. Desert Lake Gardens is doing all of our appetizers this year and Limestone Organic Creamery, who was a small part of it last year supplying cream, has expanded what they are offering this year to include cheeses. Bread and Butter and Fred’s Bread were a part of the auction last year and so were Barley Days Brewery and Casa Dea wineries and they will be returning.” The event will still include a silent auction, but this year it will be in the basement of the Grace Centre in order to accommodate all of the chairs on the main level. Mariotti was keen on involving local artists in the chairs and she hopes that this incorporation will further relationships within the community. “We’ve made a really big effort to involve the artists in the area because we are looking for the artists to be part of the Grace Centre artist features as well,” said Mariotti. “We had a few artists on our Arts Committee and through them we had some more recommendations. We just started networking and one thing led to another and we

ended up with a great list of local artists.” Artists that agreed to do chairs or benches graciously donated their time and paints to the project. Some of the artists spent close to 100 hours on their chair and the hard work certainly shows. Posters throughout the area show some of the chairs that are up for bid and the response to the posters and chairs themselves has already been positive. “We’ve even had someone email us who can’t come to the auction but still wants to bid on some of the chairs that she saw on the poster and she wanted to know how she could do that,” said Mariotti. Funds raised from both the live auction and the silent auction go toward seniors services in Southern Frontenac. SFCSC is the sole provider for these services in the area and they provide more than 15 different services for seniors, but funds have been tight the past few years. “We provide everything from day programs, to meals on wheels and even foot care. We are funded through the Local Health Integrated Network, but for the past two years we have not received an increase in funding so that means that we have to be far more aggressive in terms of our fundraising initiatives,” explained O’Hara. “The auction is a

prelude to a donor campaign that we will be launching in January which we are calling an expansion campaign. We need the funds to maintain the services that we have and we would also like to expand the services if we can, so hopefully the chairs will help us get to that point.” The SFCSC annual auction takes

place on Friday, Nov. 29 at the Grace Centre, 4295 Stage Coach Road in Sydenham. Doors will open at 5 p.m. with the live auction taking place at 7 p.m. Tickets are $40 and each person will receive a $20 charitable receipt. Advance tickets are available at the Rural VISION Centre in Sydenham or online at www.eventbrite.ca

In Our Opinion

If I can’t wear my father’s medals, just what the hell was he fighting for anyways? Craig Bakay Reporter

editorial@theheritageemc.ca

Gazette Column — I’ve been thinking about this for a couple of years now. It probably would have been more topical a couple of weeks ago but I didn’t write it then because I didn’t want to interfere with the solemnity of Remembrance Day ceremonies. But this really bothers me. Before Remembrance Day, some you may have heard about a lady in the Maritimes who wanted to wear her husband’s medals on Remembrance Day. To Madrien Ferris, it was a gesture of respect and a special way to remember her husband. I know exactly how she feels. My father was an airman in the Second World War, who joined up in Saskatoon in the fall of 1939 shortly after Hitler invaded Poland. When the war was over, he received what he called his “been-there� and his “attaboy.� More on Pop’s war later. For a couple of years after Pop died,

I got in the habit of taking those two old medals out of their original boxes and wearing them on Remembrance Day. A couple of years ago, an old fellow took exception to this, saying it was a sign of disrespect. He also pointed out that there is a law against it. I tried pointing out to him that me wearing those two medals was a not a sign of disrespect, in fact, it was exactly the opposite. I haven’t worn them since, having confirmed that it is indeed illegal, under section 147 of the Criminal Code of Canada. I told my story to Korean War veteran Bill Robinson, who encouraged me to wear the medals with the words “if you don’t, he wins.� Next year, I believe I shall. Pop wasn’t any great war hero. He spent the vast majority of it in Gander, Newfoundland as an air-traffic controller, having washed out as a fighter pilot because of his vision. Now some of you may have heard of the RCAF’s Ferry Command in the Second World War. Aircraft built in Canada and more importantly, the United States, were sent to England out of Gander. Pop was one of the guys who told them when it was cool to take off.

Honeymoon time‌ finally Mandy Marciniak Reporter

mmarciniak@theheritageemc.ca

Gazette Editorial - Although we got married on June 8, my husband and I have yet to take a honeymoon. We would have gone immediately following the wedding, but unfortunately, Korey, who is earning his PhD at Queen’s in Political Studies, had to attend a two-week course in Syracuse less than a week after our wedding. We took a brief three-day excursion to Stratford during the in between week, and while it was lovely, it certainly wasn’t long enough to be called a honeymoon. It was barely enough time to catch our breath after the craziness. I always thought that people exaggerated about wedding planning, but no, it really is that stressful. We decided to postpone our honeymoon. We thought about taking it in September before the craziness of the school year began, but then we discovered that our destination

of choice was much cheaper in December. I have always believed that when you are choosing to take a trip you should make it worthwhile. I know that many people enjoy going to an all-inclusive resort and lying on the beach for a week, but I am not one of those people and luckily neither is Korey. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy relaxing, but after a few days of doing nothing I get a little stir crazy. Summer is a time for relaxing and lounging and then I would rather do it a cottage. No need to take a flight for that. We both wanted a honeymoon that would give us some culture and allow us to explore a city that we have always wanted to travel to. Paris was the perfect choice and it is also fittingly romantic for a honeymoon. For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to travel to the ‘city of light’ and I am beyond excited that it is finally happening. I can’t wait to explore the Louvre, the Orsay and Notre Dame. I’m excited to see the Eiffel Tower, The Arc De Triomphe and Versailles. There is so much to see and do and I hope a week is enough time! Travelling to Paris in December

Now here’s the kicker. I didn’t find out what Pop did (his fallback war story was “I ran a bowling alley�) until he turned 70. His job at Gander was classified at the time and he never told anybody about it until he told me. Somehow, and I’m not really sure what emotions are at work here, but when I pinned his medals on, I felt connected to my father as a younger man. And it gave me a certain sense of calm, showing this respect for his memory. Anybody who sees it different really needs to have a good, long look at their own priorities. I don’t have a problem with wearing them on the right side (as opposed to the left like a vet would wear them) as Britain and Australia allow. I can understand that civilians shouldn’t go around wearing full military uniforms and such for security reasons if nothing else, but really, who the hell would confuse an old exhippie with a ponytail and a camera around his neck for a member of the military because he’s wearing a couple of old World War Two medals? Change the law folks. That’s what should be done with really stupid laws.

made me a little nervous, but according to multiple travel guides, the weather should be warmer than here and lineups should be at a minimum. On top of that, we will be able to see Paris decorated for the holidays, which is also very exciting. While I am sure Paris will be spectacular I am also looking forward to spending time with Korey. After the wedding, I quickly discovered why people take honeymoons and why the tradition exists. I feel like Korey and I have been running on a treadmill for the past year. A wedding is so much more than just one day. Between the planning, the showers, the family visits and of course the inevitable arguments about the day, it really is like running the most grueling marathon ever. We’ve had very little time to just enjoy being married. We both have busy lives and other things always seem to take priority over spending actual quality time with each other. We got married almost six months ago, but now I finally feel like we are married and the ‘wedding’ is finally over. It is time to relax and enjoy each other’s company‌ I just wish the cat could come too. DISTRIBUTION INQUIRIES DISTRIBUTION INQUIRIES

8 The Frontenac EMC - Thursday, November 28, 2013

A lesson in common sense Gazette Editorial - We were shocked last week to learn of a mother in Manitoba, Kristen Bartkiw, who was fined $10 for packing â&#x20AC;&#x153;incompleteâ&#x20AC;? lunches for her two children, aged five and three. The lunches were deemed so unhealthy that the daycare decided to supplement with, of all things, Ritz crackers. So what did this mother pack for her kids? Homemade roast beef, potatoes, carrots, an orange and milk. Her offence was not including a grain, hence the mandatory addition of the Ritz crackers. According to Province of Manitobaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website, there exists a policy through which â&#x20AC;&#x153;a nutritious meal (as outlined in the Canada Food Guide)â&#x20AC;? must be provided by daycares looking after children for six or more hours a day. Because potatoes are a starch as opposed to the recommended grain, authorities took action. We think this story should serve as a good reminder to all of us to exercise common sense and critical thinking as opposed to blindly following rules and regulations. As anybody who has even the smallest amount of nutritional knowledge is aware of, fresh, whole foods like those Bartkiw provided for her children are much healthier than processed junk like Ritz crackers, which are full of preservatives and unhealthy fats. Moreover, since when does the government have the right to implement a policy that basically asks authorities force feed children certain foods? Except in cases of abuse or neglect, people should be able to feed their own kids whatever they choose. Would a child of a vegetarian family be forced to eat meat simply because it is recommended by Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Food Guide? Should Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Food Guide (which is far from the only example of a healthy diet, and not necessarily even the best one, according to many experts) be held to such a high standard as to outweigh the freedom of choice afforded to citizens of our country? Thankfully, Bartkiw appealed the $10 fine and ended up not having to pay. All the same, her story should serve as a lesson to us all.

The festival is replacing two annual events that typically occur at this time of year in Verona and Verona Community Association (VCA) President, Debbie Lingen, hopes that the new event is just as successful, “We had quite the predicament this year,” said Lingen. “Twenty years ago, we had our first Christmas tree lighting. Dr. Day and his wife Louise had this beautiful evergreen tree planted in McMullen Park and for the last 20 years that has been the tree for the annual lighting. We’ve been there through snow and freezing rain and every year everyone gathers for this event. This year we looked at the tree and it is unfortunately too old and can’t sustain having Christmas lights on it. There were no other trees in the park that could be used as a substitute so we had to cancel the event.” On top of that, the VCA also had to cancel their children’s free skate event that they hold every year at the North Frontenac Arena. The event is usually held on the PA Day in November, but there is no PA day in November this year. With two major holiday events cancelled, the VCA needed to find a new way to bring the community together at Christmas. “We had our VCA meeting and we brainstormed some new ideas and we came up with the idea of having a one day event like a big Christmas party for the town,” said Lingen. “We are going to hold the event at the Verona Lions Centre and there is

a covered pavilion there. In the morning we are having a Christmas tree decorating contest. We will set up 11 real trees and 11 organizations from the community are going to compete for the best tree. This will happen at 9 a.m. and people are invited to come watch the trees be transformed.” After the trees are decorated, families are then invited to the Lions Club for an afternoon of crafts, board games and visits with Santa and Mrs. Claus. While there will be many events for children, Lingen encourages families to come out and socialize. Guests will also have an opportunity to vote for the best Christmas tree from the morning and prizes will be handed out to the top three. After all of that, a chili dinner will be served, along with hot dogs for the kids. Then families will be invited outside for the main event. “All of the lights that used to decorate the tree in McMullen Park have been put up on the outside of the Lions Centre and around the building,” explained Lingen. “Everything will be dark and then at 6:30 we will light it up and celebrate. This will replace the tree lighting ceremony and will hopefully be just as spectacular.” After the ceremony, families can stick around for marshmallow roasting at the outdoor fire pits and live entertainment from Crooked Wood inside the Lions Club. Overall, the free event promises to be one to remember. “We encourage everyone to come out and we think it will be a blast,” Lingen says. “This wonderful new event is something that we hope will continue for many years, just like the tree lighting. It should be something that people look forward to each year and hopefully it can expand too.” The Verona Christmas in the Village event takes place throughout the day on Saturday Nov. 30, and is free to anyone wishing to attend.

Gazette News — With little fanfare and even less discussion, South Frontenac Council raised Township dog tag fees at its regular meeting last week in Sydenham. CAO/Clerk Wayne Orr said in his report that the fees hadn’t been raised since 2002. Under the new fee schedule, tags purchased prior to the last day in February are raised to $15 from $12. If purchased after that date, the fee is raised to $30 from the previous $25. (The fee remains at $15 if being purchased for a new dog.) The new kennel fees are raised to $125 if bought before the last day of February and $150 thereafter from the current $100 and $125 respectively. The charge collected for reclaiming dogs from the Kingston Humane Society is increased to $100 from $75 and the duration that dogs are held is reduced to three days from five. “So, if everybody does everything right, it costs them $15,” said Coun. Ron Vandewal. The new fee schedule goes into effect Jan. 1, 2014. The reason the last day in February was chosen as the deadline, Orr said in his report, is that “the Treasury Department experiences a high volume of residents who interpret the deadline for the increase as March 31, and leave purchasing their dog tags until the Tax Due date. “This increases traffic flow to the Treasury Office on an already busy day.” ••• It’s a new record.

South Frontenac Township Council meetings have been going a lot quicker since they adopted a committee-of-the-whole format awhile ago and several meetings recently have come in under the halfhour mark. However, last week’s meeting lasted an entire 16 minutes, setting a new record for efficiency. The previous record of 18 minutes lasted since 1998, when then-Mayor Phil Leonard announced at the beginning of the meeting that it was going to be a quick one so everyone could get home to watch an Olympic hockey game that night. That meeting was held in the S & A Club building in Harrowsmith with current councilors Bill Robinson and Del Stowe in attendance. For the record, there was a hockey game on the record-setting night, with the Montreal Canadiens beating the Minnesota Wild 6-2. Current Mayor Gary Davison is a notorious Habs fan, but in fairness, it was a light agenda. ••• In response to a letter concerning a proposed subdivision development in Hartington, CAO/Clerk Wayne Orr said such concerns will be dealt with after the Township receives a request from Frontenac County, the governing body on subdivisions, to hold a public meeting on the subject. “Most of the concerns in the letter are standard (such as water and septic) and will be dealt with by the appropriate agencies,” said Mayor Gary Davison. “There are a couple of grey areas though, such as traffic on Road 38. “The last time we took a traffic survey there, there were more than 12,000 vehicles a day through there.”

Gazette Lifestyle –Black Friday is one the biggest shopping days of the year, and is often the perfect time to begin holiday shopping and save money on incredible deals. Thousands of eager shoppers will leave their homes in the early morning hours and wait in lines at stores in order to grab the best prices of the season, while retailers will be gearing up to lure the greatest number of shoppers. Surviving the day unscathed and arriving home with discounts galore involves having a game plan for success. * Know the prices of the items you want to buy. Scour advertisements in advance of Black Friday to gauge the regular retail prices for common items, including electronics. Comparison shop for the best prices and make notes to help you when Black Friday arrives. * Understand the fine print of “door busters.” Door buster sales are meant to get shoppers into stores, where retailers hope shoppers will make additional purchases while taking advantage of advertised deals. If door buster items are all you’re looking for, read the advertisements carefully, noting the start and end time of the discounts and if there will be limited quantities. In addition, determine if there is a special return policy for sale items purchased on Black Friday. * Dress for comfort. Wear sensible, comfortable shoes and clothing when shopping. Leave a large purse at home and opt for something compact that can be draped securely over your shoulder and body to navigate the crowds. Keep your coat in the car or make use of a coat check service if available. Dress in layers if you will be waiting outside for stores to open. This way you can shed clothing as the mercury rises or when you get inside. * Arrive together but shop separately. The “divide and conquer” method of shopping allows everyone in your shopping party to score good deals. Split up shopping tasks and then head to different areas of the store. Share and collect your purchases when you meet up after the rush. * Make a list and stick to it. Buyers’ remorse come Saturday morning is common for those who have over-extended their budgets

and purchased items they did not need. Know ahead of time what you plan to purchase and do not veer off course. * Scout the stores ahead of time. Visit the stores where you plan to shop a few days before Black Friday. Learn the layout of the store and where everything is located. Try on certain clothes or read over the labels of bigticket items you plan to buy. Knowing where items are located and having all of your information in advance will cut down on the time it takes to find items on Black Friday. * Don’t overlook nontraditional stores. Many other stores, from pharmacies to supermarkets, stock items apart from food and toiletries. Consider taking advantage of their sales for some Black Friday deals. * Park off campus. Mall parking lots can get just as crowded as the stores themselves. Save yourself time and the stress of finding a spot by parking near the store but away from the crowd. * Clean out your car prior to shopping. Make room in the trunk or cargo area for all of your purchases. For those who will be buying large, heavy items, find out if the store will ship the merchandise or will hold it aside until you can take it home. Understand that some stores will not hold items and enlist a friend or spouse to help you pack purchases into the car. * Promptly store receipts. Designate a folder or envelope for all of your receipts to keep them organized and handy. * Pack a small snack and drink. It’s easy to become dehydrated and hungry waiting in long lines, which can compromise your decision-making abilities. Bring a snack so that you can recharge your body and continue shopping. * Leave the kids at home. Black Friday shopping can be stressful, and children can easily get lost or bumped around in the fray. It is safer to leave them home so you can focus your full attention on shopping. * Know when to call it quits. Establish a firm cut-off time for ending your shopping excursion. This way you can head home, rest and sort through your purchases.

Places to explore and things to experience

Broadway fun on a Kingston stage professional production. Powell and Johnston are aware that Guys and Dolls presents a unique set of problems. But it’s these challenges that potentially make the show so good. “It has all the things you’d look for in a Broadway musical,” says Hugh Johnston. “There are great solo songs for singers, great ensemble songs, really good dance

numbers for girls and guys. There’s strong character development. But this makes for the challenges.” The production needs strong male and female singers and dancers. Powell and Johnston think they’ve got what they need again this year. They lost some key actors when people like Hailey Hill and Daniella (Dani) Richards graduated in the spring and moved on to uni-

versity. But there are strong actors moving up in the grades. “The people we’ve got this year are really solid,” says Powell. There are a lot of familiar tunes in Guys and Dolls. “Some of these have become standards that people know outside the show,” says Johnston. “People may know the song and not realize what it’s from. There are also big

ensemble numbers. involving pretty much the whole cast. There’s a showstopper tune that after hearing it the audience should be exhausted. We’ve spent two Sundays with seven hours a day working on that. Among the show’s many tunes there’s Sky Masterson’s (Will Gouett) swanky “Luck Be A Lady,” Continued on page 20

Gazette Lifestyle - RegiopolisNotre Dame consistently pulls off challenging theatrical productions. The school’s drama department’s Steve Powell and Juno/MusiCounts award-winning Hugh Johnston year after year provide performances of the highest calibre, far beyond what you normally experience at the high school level. What they produce is worth a professional admission price several times higher than what they actually charge. They don’t settle for easy shows. Past works have included Les Misérables, South Pacific and Fiddler on the Roof. These are each demanding in every area, from choreography to acting and music.You simply won’t see better high school (or community theatre) in the region. They’re doing it again this year with Guys and Dolls. Combine gangsters, gamblers and the chaos of New York City’s streets with Save-a-Soul Mission do-gooders and, besides hilarious romance and comedy, you’ve got a great Broadway show. Throughout, Miss Adelaide (Lauren Knight) attempts to rope her fiancée of 14 years, Nathan Detroit (Caleb Ruttiman) into entering the marital contract. Or imagine the potential hilarity in this scenario, one of many in the musical: Nathan attempts to use Sarah’s (Kathryn Johnston) Save-a-Soul Mission as a host site for his crap game. With music and lyrics by Tony Award-winning Frank Loesser, the show is a textbook example of what constitutes the best of musical theatre. Guys and Dolls premiered on Broadway in 1950. The initial run of 1,200 performances received rave reviews. It won the Tony Award for best musical. “We’ve had a long line of shows that have been Tony Award-winners,” says Johnston. “We don’t plan it, but realized it after the fact.” The problem with Guys and Dolls, like many such productions, is that without adept handling, it can come across as annoyingly amateurish. That won’t happen at Regi, where you’ll be treated to a

Miss Adelaide’s “A Bushel and a Peck” and Nicely Nicely Johnson’s (Oliver Perkins) “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat.” Lauren Knight, a Grade 11 student with a solid acting resume, plays the role of Miss Adelaide, gambler Nathan Detroit’s fiancé. In addition to drama work at school, for the past two years Lauren has traveled to Toronto once or twice a month to work on her acting technique with acting coach Frank Caruso. She also plays bassoon and takes regular lessons. She perfects her singing skills with Molly Luhta. She’s performed in ten productions in the past, including Hairspray, Anything Goes and Julius Caesar. She was thrilled to land the role of Adelaide. “I was so excited to get the role,” she says. “She’s so funny. It’s such a come-

dic role and I get to try something different.” She says acting is at the top of her career list. “I want to continue with it,” she said. “I want to go to university for film or acting. Right now I’m looking at Ryerson and B.C.” She also likes to take advantage of any opportunities to see professional productions. This Christmas she’s going to New York City with her family to see Newsies on Broadway. But first, it’s Guys and Dolls and she’s loving it. “Guys and Dolls is a lot of work, but it’s such fun,” she said. “The show is something we all look forward to every year. It’s really exciting now that we’re in crunch time getting close to the performances.” As the days get darker and the temperatures fall in December, you can

brighten things up with a Regi musical. “When you come to a show at Regi, you’re getting great music, singing and dancing, all treated as professionally as we can,” says Johnston. “We use professional sound and lighting and have a great orchestra. When you tack our production assets on top of everything else it gives it that extra little spark.” I’d argue that it’s more than a little spark. It’s a whole lot of sparkle and class. Guys and Dolls runs from Dec. 11 to 14 with a 7 p.m. curtain. There’s also a 2 p.m. matinee on Dec. 7. You’re getting

big-city-quality for small town prices. Adults, $12; Students, $10; Saturday matinee: Adults, $12; Students, $8; Elementary students, $6. Tickets for Guys and Dolls are available at the Regiopolis-Notre Dame office at 130 Russell Street in Kingston;

More than just a restaurant

shows to poetry nights at The Goat. To keep tabs on whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening, follow them on Facebook (facebook. com/SleeplessGoat) and Twitter (@ sleeplessgoats). Above all, they agree that the concept of safe space is a core value at The Sleepless Goat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very welcoming,â&#x20AC;? says Courtney. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cater to a particular crowd. We very proactively offer a safe space. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re queer-positive and pro-feminist. There are not a lot of other spaces that actively try to do that.â&#x20AC;? In a write-up summarizing and defining safe space, workers state that â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are committed to our role as a safe space....(which) means a place where everyone can feel comfortable being themselves and expressing themselves, without hindering anyone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right to do the same. We strive to be accessible, childfriendly, pro-feminist, anti-racist, anti-fascist, class conscious, queer- Three of The Sleepless Goat Cafe Workers Cooperative outside the restaurant: from left, Chris Oldfield Conor Photo/Mark Bergin and trans-positive, and we ask our Barnes and Courtney Klumper patrons to treat each other and our staff respectfully and kindly regardless of personal differences. We aim to foster community and create an environment where all feel welcome. WE WILL NOT TOLERATE DISCRIMINATION (emphasis theirs) in The Sleepless Goat.â&#x20AC;? How does this approach manifest within the organization? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obvious at the decision-making level. There are Monday night staff meetings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whoever works here attends,â&#x20AC;? says Conor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Decision is by consensus. Everyone has to agree to the decision being made.â&#x20AC;? While most organizations have a fairly short mission statement that is so general and vague as to be meaningless, The Sleepless Goatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mission Statement spells everything out. One section states: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We acknowledge the basic right of every person to food, and will provide high-quality, healthy and affordable food in a warm and safe environment to our guests, regardless of their economic reality. Those who cannot afford to pay will be given their meals with the same dignity and respect as any other guests.

Gazette Lifestyle - Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a unique place with positive vibes. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m fascinated by its working structure and social consciousness. Oh, and the food is great. The Sleepless Goat CafĂŠ Workersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Cooperative, affectionately known as The Goat, has been around since 1993, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only been a workersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; cooperative since 1999. That year, the workers bought the restaurant from the previous owners. It was the first time this happened in Canada. Today, 16 workers are on staff. I sit down with three of them to talk about the restaurant. In addition to being a fulfilling and socially conscious place to work, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a demanding career. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely exhausting, in a rewarding kind of way,â&#x20AC;? says Conor Barnes, who has worked there for just over a year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are a lot of benefits to being able to talk to co-workers and make decisions as equals.â&#x20AC;? Courtney Klumper, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worked there for two years, agrees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a really unique work experience. You get to see the products of your labor. Building relationships with the regulars is important to me.â&#x20AC;? She noted that her work at The Sleepless Goat is probably the most challenging thing sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much more difficult than university or previous jobs ever were,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;None of us come from a business background. Most are focused on social and political issues, so youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see that manifested.â&#x20AC;? Chris Oldfield has worked there for four years and says the setting is more than a business. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal is to make enough money to get by,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to maintain a space for the community to come in, for events to occur in and to make sure a cooperative exists. If people want jobs that arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t conventionally money-driven and hierarchical, this is the place.â&#x20AC;? He explained that most of his friends work there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always been a hub for me to do things with friends and to relax,â&#x20AC;? said Chris. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why I enjoy working here, so I can contribute back.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I agree,â&#x20AC;? said Conor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really great that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a place that hosts events that other places wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. I appreciate it as a community space that functions as a hub.â&#x20AC;? Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find everything from art

EDUCATION

R0011879417

This last year has seen signiďŹ cant changes to the facilities at KLC College: Healthcare, Business, Education bringing to a conclusion a comprehensive expansion and upgrading program that started over two years ago. With the ďŹ nal approvals in place, the newly installed Dental Clinic is now fully operational and marks the completion of the Collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enhancements. The College undertook to install the necessary facilities and equipment for each program in order to enhance every students experience and to maximize the handson practical training that leads to concrete skills development. Every program now has an environment to learn the theory as well as a Lab or Clinic to actually apply the theory with hands on applications and demonstrations. The Director of the College, Stephen Bartolini states â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal is to ensure that our graduates possess the knowledge and skills that the employers expect, and with the recent improvements we are very conďŹ dent that we not only meet this objective but we exceed it.â&#x20AC;? The response from the Collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s industry partners that host the students for the placement portions of the programs, as well as the test scores from National Exams conďŹ rm that these initiatives are showing very positive results. Both the positive feedback from

employers and the test scores show that College is deďŹ nitely hitting the mark with this approach. As the outcomes of the College graduates continue to improve so do the employment results. Many of the students are actually being interviewed and receiving job offers while they are still on placement, before they actually complete the program. These results are testament to the quality of the training they have received and the standards set by the staff and faculty at the College. These positive results are being experienced across the board in the various program offerings the College has. The healthcare ďŹ eld has been very successful with programs such as Intra Oral Dental Assisting, Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy Assistant, Personal Support Worker and Pharmacy Technician. In the administration ďŹ elds, Legal and Medical Administration as well as Law Clerk and Accounting are leading the way. As are some of the Collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newer endeavors, Education Assistant, Child and Youth Worker and the latest offering Web Design and Development. For a free tour of the College or to inquire about the many classes starting in January contact the Admissions Department at 613384-6194 or go to www.klccollege.ca

Dos and don’ts of holiday shopping card. * Don’t be fooled by false sales. Retailers understand that a good advertised deal lures shoppers into their stores. As a result, some retailers mark up the cost of certain items in order to slash the prices for holiday sales. Even if you are saving the assumed 50 to 60 percent, the final cost of the item still may be higher than normal. Comparison shop and do your research so you don’t fall victim to clever pricing. * Do schedule time for shopping. Hectic schedules sometimes result in last-minute shopping that leads to impulse purchases. Schedule some distraction-free time for your holiday shopping so you’re less likely to rush into purchases before thinking them through. * Don’t double buy. Some shoppers use the holidays as an excuse to buy more for themselves than the people on their lists. While it’s tempting to treat yourself come the holiday season, this is a great and quick way to deplete your budget. If you plan on using holiday deals to supplement your own wardrobe or household needs, reduce

your spending the rest of the year and save money for year-end purchases. * Do collect coupons and look for purchasing incentives. Comparison shopping not only helps you get the best price, but also it can shed light on coupons, shipping discounts and other incentives that lower the overall cost of products. Search online for Web sites that publish coupons and codes for online discounts, including free shipping. Join a store’s marketing list and receive emails with deals sent directly to your inbox. * Don’t be afraid to delay some purchases if need be. If hosting a postholiday gathering where gifts will be exchanged, it’s perfectly acceptable to delay buying those gifts until after Christmas or Chanukah, when many items can be found at even lower prices. Many stores reduce prices on merchandise come December 26, so you can wait until after the holidays to shop for items that will be exchanged with distant friends and relatives. This enables you to save more money and use any received gift cards toward shopping.

* Do keep a level head. Some people forget the true meaning of the season is spending time with loved ones. Getting swept away by shopping and worrying

about deadlines can make the season less enjoyable. Don’t allow the stress of holiday shopping to compromise an otherwise joyous time of year.

Gazette Lifestyle – Thanks to sales featuring heavily discounted items, millions of people wait to start their holiday shopping until the season hits full swing. But in spite of such bargains, overextending budgets during the holiday season is too tempting for many shoppers to resist. However, shoppers need not risk financial peril if they shop smartly and heed some dos and don’ts of holiday shopping. * Do set a budget. Establish what you can afford to spend on gifts and other seasonal trimmings early on. The National Retail Federation estimates that the average consumer will spend around $700 come the holiday season. But not every person needs to be a big spender. The “buy now, pay later” mentality that credit cards offer lands many shoppers in trouble, a sticky situation many only notice once the first bill comes due. If you cannot afford to pay your entire credit card balance off once the bill arrives, you face steep interest charges that can quickly add up. Instead, pick a set spending limit and keep to it no matter how tempting it may seem to overspend with a credit

Visit Santa without all the tears horror, wait another year before seeing Santa. * Visit during off-peak hours. Weekends and evenings are the busiest times to visit Santa. This means long lines and longer wait times. Instead of dealing with the masses, try to get to the mall when the doors first open. Otherwise, let the children skip a day of school and visit during the week when the lines are shorter. * Consider another venue. Many different places of business host events where kids can meet Santa. Families may be able to share a meal with Santa at a restaurant or visit him at a nursery while selecting Christmas trees.

ferent environment may be less intimidating to children and take the pressure off waiting in line in a busy mall. * Go well-fed. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s little worse than waiting in line and doing so hungry. Hunger pangs can turn even the most placid child into a menace. Pack snacks to enjoy while waiting. Opt for items that will not stain lips and teeth or drip onto clothing. * Make it a family photo. Sometimes the only way to entice a little one to take a picture with Santa is to provide some added security. Dress your best and be prepared to have to step in and cozy up to Santa to ensure your child is all smiles.

children and aggravated adults could set off a chain reaction that culminates in tear-stained cheeks and a sullied holiday memory. Pictures with Santa can go much more smoothly when you employ the following tips. * Prep children. While kids may love the idea of Santa, youngsters face to face with a man in a red suit and a big, white beard may be nervous. Begin talking up Santa a few months before Christmas, mentioning how nice and friendly he is. Gauge how kids act around costumed performers at fairs, circuses and birthday parties and help them grow accustomed to people in costumes. If costumes elicit screams of

The holiday season means itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time once again for parents to take their youngsters to visit Santa Claus. Pictures with little boys and girls lining up in their dress clothes with Santa are a holiday tradition, and youngsters are often anxious for their chances to share their Christmas gift wishes with the jolly man in red. But as integral as such photo sessions are to the holiday season, parents know they are one crying fit or meltdown away from having this tradition turn into trouble. After waiting in long lines to see Santa, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s understandable when everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s patience starts to wear thin. The combination of antsy

Finding time during the holiday season items off multiple shopping lists, shoppers who shop singularly can devote all of their attention to their own lists. * Shop online. Another way to save time when shopping for the holidays is to shop online. This saves you the time it takes to drive to and from the mall and walk around multiple stores, all the while saving you from the often frustrating and time-consuming experience of finding a parking space. In addition, you can shop online at any time of day. So rather than just eating lunch at your desk on your lunch hour or spending the last hour before you go to bed for the night idling away on the couch, you can make more efficient use of that time by doing some holiday

on menu items, saving you the hassle of rushing to the store at the last minute or planning a menu in the days before the party when you will already have enough on your plate. * Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t shy away from shortcuts when hosting holiday dinners. Hosting a holiday dinner is a big undertaking, one that often finds hosts spending a significant amount of time in the kitchen. But hosts can save time by taking some shortcuts regarding the menu. For instance, when hosting an especially large meal, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be afraid to buy some premade side dishes from a local grocery store or buy a bakery cake rather than whipping up your own homemade dessert. Guests will understand if you cut some corners

in an effort to save some time, and the food will likely be just as delicious. * Stay home. Travel is a big commitment come the holiday season, but what about staying home this season? If the time commitment of traveling is something you truly want to avoid this year, invite some friends and family over to your home instead. You might be more busy on the day of the holiday, but you will save yourself the travel days you usually build into the holiday season. Parents of young children might prefer to stay home so they can create their own unique holiday memories, while those without children might just appreciate some peace and quiet during this hectic time of year.

shopping. * Plan ahead. Whether shopping for holiday gifts, taking the family to buy a Christmas tree or organizing a holiday dinner with friends, the more you can plan ahead of the holiday season the less time you will waste once the season hits full swing. For example, when choosing a weekend to go Christmas tree shopping, inform others a few weeks in advance and let them know you want to go early to avoid crowds. This saves you time and might just help you land one of the best trees on the lot.The same principle of planning can be applied to other aspects of the holiday season as well. Planning a meal early allows you to gradually stock up

Perhaps no time of year is as busy as the holiday season, when social engagements and holiday shopping combine to dominate so much of what is normally our free time. Additionally, holiday travel and late nights spent at work to make up for lost time also cut into our free time, leaving many people in search of ways to add more hours to the day. Though thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no way to make a day last longer, there are ways to save some time this holiday season. * Go it alone.

on the table. “I’m making soap today,” she said.  She had been saving lard from the fried bacon, roasted pork and anywhere else she could find a spoonful or two of fat.  By the time the soap day rolled around, about four small honey pails of fat sat on an old table in the summer kitchen at the ready. The tin of Gillette’s Lye was already bought at Scott’s Hardware in Renfrew, and we children were warned every day not to even touch the tin it came in, so deadly it was! “Poison. And it will burn a finger to the bone,” Mother warned.   Every time I walked through the summer kitchen, I looked at the yellow and black lettered tin of lye like it alone had started the First World War. The containers Mother used to make the soap were big square black tins, much like the cookie sheets that stood on edge in the bottom of the kitchen cupboard.  But these were shallow, and much larger, and as black as your boot. Even before we went to school, Mother would have started into the soap making. The tins (usually there were at least three in use at a time) were spread out on the old wood table in the summer kitchen. The kettle would be boiling on the Findlay Oval, and Mother would take it to the summer kitchen and half-fill the black tins with hot water. I would always hope we would still be home when she added the lye. I both hated and was entranced with that step in soap-making. Mother would pry off the lid with a knife and evenly pour the lye over the hot water.  And great gusts of steam would come off the tins, not from the hot water which would cool off almost immediately, but from the lye doing its dastardly deed with the water. There was an old wood spoon, with a very long handle, that was used for nothing else but stirring the lye into the water.  It had a piece of binder twine through the little hole in the handle, and when not used for soap-making, hung in the summer kitchen, so that it wouldn’t accidentally be used for something that would be put in our stomachs. The fact that Mother wore a pair of Father’s old work gloves confirmed in my mind how deadly was the lye.  We were never around long enough to see the next step, but we knew the little honey pails, which would have been sitting on the back of the cook stove to turn to liquid, would be brought close to the table, and

once the lye had been melted into the hot water, the lard would have to be stirred into the mixture. Into one tray Mother would drop in a few drops of vanilla.  That tray would be used for our baths and face-washing. My sister Audrey said the hardest part of soap-making, was trying to blend the fats into the water and lye. Sometimes it took hours. And I would picture in my mind Mother with Father’s old work gloves on, stirring and stirring and making sure not a drop would touch her skin. By the time we got home from school, the big black trays of lye, water and fat, would have gelled and hardened, at least that was Mother’s hope. But sometimes, it seemed to take forever for the pans to set well enough to be cut into bars. Wile that was happening, Mother constantly jumped up from the supper table and went out to the summer kitchen to press a finger to the mould to see if it was ready to cut. I could never figure out how the deadly lye could lose its power just by adding water and lard! When it did (and I questioned the fact), it became the soap we would use in our baths on Saturday night, for washing our hands, shaved into slivers for doing the Monday washings, and for anything else that needed to be cleaned with soap and water. By the time the evening was well on its way, Mother would bring the trays onto the kitchen table which had been spread out with copies of the Renfrew Mercury, and with the sharpest knife in the house, she would cut the soap into bars.  Sadly, no matter how hard Mother worked to melt the lye, there was always a few pieces left that didn’t succumb to the hot water, and it wasn’t unusual at all, when washing, to have a piece of lye scrape across your body, leaving a scratch like one made by a mad tom cat! My sister Audrey and I and Mother were the only ones to use the soap made with a dash of vanilla, but as far as I was concerned, the vanilla did little to take away the strong smell of Gillette’s Lye. It would be a long time before Mother finally bought a bar of real soap, and it, I thought, smelled just as bad as what she had made.  It was called Lifebuoy, it was bright red, and even my brother Emerson, who hated the lye soap as much as I did, said the Lifebuoy smelled only a bit better than the smell of the cow byre.  And it lingered on your body for hours.   One day MothMS 170 GAS er bought a bar of a new soap called CHAIN SAW Ivory.  It was for 30.1 cc/1.3kW company, like Aunt Lizzie when STARTING AT ONLY she came from Regina, and when she left, it was AN $85 wrapped in wax VALUE!

money, she’d say. And besides, there was nothing wrong with the bars of homemade soap she churned out once or twice a year. As well as my loathing for the homemade soap was my absolute dislike for the days Mother put aside to make it! That seemed to happen spring and fall. It couldn’t be too hot, or too cold.

Harvesting Peace: Catherine Styles Awarded the 2013 YMCA Peace Medallion By Kate Kristiansen Columnist

Gazette Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; YMCA Peace Week is celebrated Nov. 16 - 23 each year across Canada. The hope is to inspire others to actively become engaged in peace in their everyday lives. Catherine (Cath) Styles is the 2013 YMCA Peace Medallion recipient, celebrating her work as founder of the GROW Project in support and partnership with Loving Spoonful. The GROW Project is an art installation and community gardens network across five schools throughout the Limestone District School Board. It engages children to be more socially active by developing links with the school, the kids and the wider community. It enhances knowledge of sustainable food production through participation and cultivation. Loving Spoonful is a non-profit organization; its main objective to enhance access to healthy food to Kingston residents. They offer a free pick-up service from restaurants and caterers across town, delivering the surplus food to twenty shelters and social service programs in addition to a variety of food education programs. The GROW project is an extension of their programs specific to children. Loving Spoonful volunteers maintain the gardens throughout the summer months. In every community, there are exceptional leaders whose work influences the lives of others. As an artist, activist, wife and mother of two, Cath is very

deserving of this award for her efforts in reinforcing activities that promote a more peaceful environment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peace means so many different things,â&#x20AC;? said Styles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For me itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about tolerance and understanding. The ability to live in a community where everyone is different but there is acceptance for what makes each other different.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peace is really about all of those values that you find in religion â&#x20AC;&#x201C;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trust, respect and the rules of conduct that allow you to respond in an appropriate way.â&#x20AC;? Styles and I share the same philosophy on peace and the benefits of building stronger connections to food and community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The culture of food is something that is lost today,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve turned food into a chore, into a consumable,â&#x20AC;? continued Styles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to turn it into an approach in cultivating a food mind. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My mother always had beautiful perennial gardens. I had two aunts who had amazing vegetable gardens. I have these fond memories of a communal interaction with food. Where the family and extended community would work together. I would help with preserves. While I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell you how to can a beet, I do have memories of washing and preparing the beets for canning. It was family affair. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a kid there was music and food always around us.â&#x20AC;? said Styles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a social activity where we kids helped by replenishing food during gatherings

or washing dishes. Today, we still do this. Seven of my cousins and extended family rented a house for a weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vacation. It was packed with our families, bikes, dogs - the whole week revolved around food.â&#x20AC;? The enjoyment of food, in both its preparation and consumption, is intertwined with social custom feeding us physically and mentally. Food connects. There is a joy in working, sharing and building community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The GROW idea was to initially to talk to the kids about public art, and how they can use their voice to affect their community,â&#x20AC;? said Styles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The idea just grew, from how do we show them,â&#x20AC;? explained Styles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ok, lets paint murals, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s put them on a fence and why not make this fence around a garden.â&#x20AC;? The first GROW Project garden was built at Rideau Public School in the Winter/Spring of 2009 with approximately 60 Grade 5 students participating in classroom activities. Today, over 170 children participate from Grades 1 - 6. Local artist/illustrator, Nancy Douglas at Nelson Street Studio helped divide classes into groups and worked with students, developing murals that would be painted on the garden fences. RONA provided building materials, cut to size, at no charge, and the fence sections were assembled and primed by parent volunteers before mural painting days.

Emily Dowling from Root Radicals CSA on Howe Island generously donated tomato seedlings for the project, and two of her interns came in for a classroom session, teaching the kids about raising vegetables and transplanting seedlings. Susan Belyea, former Executive Director of Loving Spoonful, mentored the program development and came in to talk about Loving Spoonful and the role of other social agencies within Kingston. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was decided that the GROW Project was going to adopt [the seedlings from Emily Dowling] and grow and plant them and then donate to Loving Spoonful,â&#x20AC;? says Styles. Since the spring of 2009, four additional GROW Project gardens have been built at schools in Central Kingston, including First Avenue, Rideau Heights, JG Simcoe and Winston Churchill Public Schools. In 2013, through a Weston Foundation grant, additional education programs to the project have been added. Eleanor Roosevelt once said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough to believe in it. One must work at it.â&#x20AC;? Cath Styles works at it.

Martial arts fundraiser will help local kids Reporter

Gazette Events - With the holidays fast approaching, many families in the community will feel the burden of the extra expense. This is why Tallack Martial Arts school in Kingston will once again be hosting its annual Kids Helping Kids Have Christmas fundraiser. The event is now in its 17th year. Hanshi Ken Tallack opened the studio itself more than 20 years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve raised over $100,000, and last year was a really big year,â&#x20AC;? says the studioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Melanie Loxton. All of the funds stay in the Kingston region and are given to the Salvation Army and their Christmas assistance program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been talking about this for the last few weeks, getting the children pumped up about it,â&#x20AC;? says Loxton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The most exciting thing is that they get to help out other kids in their community.â&#x20AC;? The fundraiser is a martial arts skills showcase that allows children and some young adults to perform 500 different combinations of basic skills, known as the 500 Technique Challenge. Some of the more advanced participants will do a 5000 Technique Challenge, such as those from Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Karate Club. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve invited over 600 students,â&#x20AC;? Loxton explains. Kids will be participating from 18 regional schools as well as a variety of martial arts clubs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For the children, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have kids as young as four.â&#x20AC;? The funds are raised through the

pledges that the kids collect prior to the showcase. Loxton says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have put together different types of incentives for them; for instance, the top fundraiser wins an iPod.â&#x20AC;? There are also prizes for second and third place fundraisers. Furthermore, any child that raises more than $100 will be entered into a draw for a sec-

ond iPod. The event itself will also include 50-50 draws and raffles. Though there is no entrance price to watch the showcase, Loxton says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are welcome to make donations.â&#x20AC;? The combinations themselves wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be adjudicated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will be a skills competition to follow, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just for the kids to get out there and have

a good time,â&#x20AC;? says Loxton. She adds that there will also be non-competitive games, such as standing on one leg, to add a little more fun to the day. Loxton says that because last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event was such a success, they have high goals for this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year we raised $6,500 and this year weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to raise $7,500,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This directly

affects our community, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the part that I find really exciting about it.â&#x20AC;? The event will take place Saturday, Nov. 30 at Cataraqui Woods Elementary School beginning at 9:30 a.m. For more information about the Tallack Martial Arts Studio and its upcoming events, please visit www.kingstonkarate.com.

Countdown to the Dominion Tankard curling championship By HIT N ROLL Columnist

Gazette Sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Dominion Tankard starts in 60 days at the Smiths Falls Memorial Community Centre (arena). The Dominion Tankard, which is the Southern Ontario provincial menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s curling championship, takes place from Jan. 27 to Feb. 2, 2014. The winner represents Ontario at the Tim Hortons Brier. The tournament is overseen by the OCA (Ontario Curling Association). The event is sponsored by the Dominion of Canada General Insurance Company. Northern Ontario has its own provincial championship known as the Dominion of Canada Northern Ontario Menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Curling Championship. Since 1960, there have been five Ontario provincial champions from Eastern Ontario â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Jake Edwards of Kingston, 1960; Eldon Coombe of Ottawa, 1972; Alex Scott of Kingston, 1975; Earle Morris of Ottawa, 1985; Rick Moffatt of Ottawa, 1999 and Bryan Cochrane of Ottawa, 2003. The original Tankard â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Brier Tankard â&#x20AC;&#x201C; was first awarded in 1927 and stayed as the most coveted trophy in curling until 1979 when Labatt Breweries took over sponsorship from MacDonald Tobacco. The Tankard trophy went into hibernation until 2000. The Tankard is a treasured piece of Brier History.    The second leg of the Grand Slam of Curling took place in Alberta last weekend . Once again teams from Ontario were prominent with four of them in the final eight. Each of these outstanding teams are potential participants in the Provincial Championships here in January. The quality of play was not as good as the first Grand Slam event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Precision shot making was more difficult because the ice was tricky and seemed to be

Blithe Spirit brings a little comedy to the holiday season By Mandy Marciniak

mmarciniak@theheritageemc.ca

Gazette Events – This holiday season, take a break from shopping and enjoy some theatre. Blithe Spirit, a comedy written by Noel Coward, is coming to Kingston and it is sure to lighten your holiday stress. The Domino Theatre and director Gord Love are bringing this classic play to life, and Love hopes that audiences will enjoy it as much as he does. “It is a very famous play, it ran for most of the Second World War and set London records for the longest running play until The Mouse Trap finally beat it,” explained Love. “It is a play about a novelist who has to get another best-selling novel written quickly or he’ll be in a bit of trouble financially. He hires a local medium to come into his house with the idea of writing a book about a crooked medium that takes advantage of people. When the medium sets up a séance inside his house bad things happen and his first wife, who died, then returns as a ghost. Naturally, this is not entirely pleasing to his current wife and of course comedy ensues.” Love, who taught at Loyalist Collegiate for 33 years, has directed and acted in multiple plays in Kingston over the years. He has a passion for theatre and still enjoys reading and performing new scripts with new casts. “The best thing about it is that it is sort of like reading a book along with six other people and having the ability to do more than just comment on it. You have to be able to bring the book to life. You have to all agree to

do it too, so it is a terrific way to explore a good piece or writing. It is like reading between the lines with good friends.” Blithe Spirit is a classic play and Love really wanted to do it right. Comedies can be a bit challenging, especially when they have a supernatural aspect, but Love was up for the challenge. “It is a ghost story so that is fun and it is challenging in figuring out how to do it properly. All of us treat ghosts as something that you run into in stories and in this case the storyteller actually runs into one. I think it would give anyone a terrible shock if it really happened and that is exactly how he reacts.” Of course, Love is not entirely responsible for pulling off the story effectively himself. He is working with both familiar and new actors, another aspect of directing that can be challenging, but Love praises his cast for their ability to bring the play to life effectively. “I think the play is really, really funny and the performers are very good too. It is a wonderful play and I think this group of actors is doing a great job with it. When you get a group that is serious and they want to do a great job, it doesn’t take long for the production to be fun. Plays are hard work, but they are also a lot of fun.” Blithe Spirit runs from Nov. 28 to Dec. 14 at The Davies Foundation Auditorium, 52 Church St. The play runs on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights at 8 p.m. For more information and tickets visit www.kingstongrand.ca.

Fifty years later mystery surrounds JFK’s assassination

Stunning news I was only 11 at the time but I clearly remember wandering around the school yard during recess,

Best Buy CORRECTION NOTICE NEWSPAPER RETRACTION FOR THE BEST BUY NOVEMBER 22 CORPORATE FLYER In the November 22 flyer, page 3, the Grand Theft Auto V game offer (Web Code: 10185169 / 10185174) was incorrectly advertised.

books on JFK’s assassination alone is staggering. His slaying was not unprecedented of course. Three earlier American presidents were also felled by assassin’s bullets. Abraham Lincoln in 1865, James Garfield in 1881 and William McKinley in 1901. At least two major things separate Kennedy’s assassination from the others. He died at a time when the mass media was just coming of age due to the increasing impact of television. As a result the Kennedy assassination was arguably the biggest news story of the 20th century. Because it happened in modern times it is also THE most analyzed crime in history. Conspiracy theories As the headline on this column notes it is the uncertainty which continues to surround his murder that sets Kennedy’s death apart. Fifty years later conspiracy theories continue to abound. The latest claim is set out in a TV documentary aired at the beginning of this month. The Canadian-Australia co-production claims one of Kennedy’s Secret Service security detail accidentally fired the fatal head shot. The film, based on one of

the many books about the incident, says an inexperienced agent (he died two years ago) pulled a handgun after hearing the first shots. The writer alleges the man inadvertently pulled the trigger and a bullet struck Kennedy who was riding in the vehicle ahead. The evidence presented is interesting. Especially considering that the Secret Service agents involved have publicly admitted their security detail was very low on experienced officers during the fateful tour of Texas which ended so tragically in Dealey Plaza, Dallas. As a career journalist with an intense interest in the case I have read countless articles and watched endless documentaries outlining conspiracy theories. Most are long on sensationalism and short on substance. But like so many other interested people I have a hard time believing the official line that just one individual was involved in the assassination and its aftermath. In September 1964 the Warren Commission, appointed to investigate the assassination, released an 889-page report. Their conclusion was that Oswald, acting alone, shot Kennedy and seriously wounded

Texas Governor John Connally who was seated ahead of the president. It is often forgotten that Oswald is also alleged to have shot and killed veteran Dallas police officer J.D. Tippit who attempted to stop a man for questioning some 45 minutes after the assassination. The Warren Commission ruled that Ruby, seeking revenge for JFK’s murder, was the only person involved in the fatal shooting of Oswald two days later. Based on the totality of evidence I remain skeptical. The Warren package is just too neat and tidy. And Oswald’s slaying was far too convenient all around. If you are at all familiar with the case then you will know there are still a lot of unconnected dots in this picture. My hope is the veil of secrecy which continues to cloak details of Kennedy’s assassination will eventually be lifted and the whole truth will be revealed in my lifetime. Fifty years after the fact JFK’s murder is just as sad and the mystery which surrounds his untimely death is just as intriguing! Share your memories of JFK’s assassination with Jeff.

Gazette Lifestyle – Where were you on Friday, Nov. 22, 1963? Like me, anyone who was alive on that fall afternoon half a century ago is almost sure to remember exactly where they were and what they were doing. Events that capture the attention of everyone in the world are rare. And certainly the tragedy that unfolded on the streets of Dallas, Texas 50 years ago tomorrow qualifies as “world shaking.” The President of the United States, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, was killed by gunfire as he rode in a motorcade through the streets of the southern U.S. city. Few events in modern times can replicate the sense of horror and loss that gripped North America and much of the globe in the wake of JFK’s murder. One year earlier Kennedy was credited with saving the world from nuclear annihilation during what is known as the “Cuban Missile Crisis.” His sudden, violent death was so shocking. Anyone old enough to appreciate the depth of the tragedy that occurred in Dallas wondered what might happen next? JFK’s assassination left us feeling sad, scared and vulnerable! In my lifetime there is only one other calamity that prompted feelings approaching how I felt on Nov. 22, 1963. That occurred nearly 38 years later, on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001. I was much older of course. But the terrorist attacks on the U.S., including the collapse of the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, sparked the same sense of shock and fear I felt in the aftermath of Kennedy’s slaying. The images from both events are forever seared into my memory! In the lead-up to the 50th anniversary of JFK’s assassination the details from those shocking times have been reprised in books, newspaper and magazine stories as well as in a made for television movie and numerous TV and radio documentaries. The black and white footage from that time (few people had colour TV in those days) is just as stark and troubling now as it was then. Watching an emotional Walter Cronkite, the late, great anchor of CBS Television News, struggle to announce that JFK had died of his wounds, still brings a lump to my throat. One of the best programs I saw last week was a two-night, fourhour documentary, part of the always impressive ‘American Experience’ series on PBS. I thought I knew a lot about JFK but I learned much more during that excellent program. I began this column by asking where people were on that tragic day. Interestingly tomorrow’s 50th anniversary also falls on a Friday which, somehow, makes it even more poignant. For me the memory is as fresh as if it happened yesterday. It was early afternoon and I was in the Grade 6 classroom at Stittsville Union Public School. The door suddenly opened and our principal, the late Mrs. Ida Alexander, strode in wearing a grim look. She told us she had heard on the radio that President Kennedy had been shot and killed.

stunned by what I had just heard. I wasn’t alone! All of the older students and teachers were doing the same thing. Some teachers and a number of kids were in tears. People today have become so desensitized to violence that it may seem odd to consider the attitude and the feelings we had in 1963. At that time Kennedy was a hero to North Americans. The Cold War had its terrifying moments. The worst was in the fall of 1962. U.S. intelligence discovered the USSR had deployed missile launchers on the island nation of Cuba. For a few tense days in October the world stood on the brink of nuclear war. Never before or since has such a scenario occurred. In effect the young American president went toe-to-toe with Nikita Khrushchev, the leader of the Soviet Union. It was Khrushchev who blinked! With the benefit of information which wasn’t available at the time, we now know Kennedy’s handling of the crisis wasn’t as perfect as we thought. Neither was his personal life of course. But at that time most people believed JFK’s calm approach had saved the world. Little wonder he was put on a pedestal! The ongoing, positive publicity surrounding Kennedy, his glamorous wife Jacqueline and their two young children Caroline and John Jr. made them the best-known family on the planet. In the wake of the assassination we were devastated by the images of the president’s widow, still wearing her bloodstained dress, which flickered across our TV screens. I’ve always been a newshound. Coming from a newspaper family that isn’t surprising, I suppose. But on the terrible weekend following JFK’s slaying my family and I were glued to the television, watching continually as the drama unfolded. Early on that Sunday afternoon, we were watching the lead-up to a Canadian Football League playoff game between Ottawa Rough Riders and Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Suddenly the channel cut away to show American TV coverage of alleged assassin Lee Harvey Oswald’s transfer from the Dallas Police Station to the more secure county jail. Oswald never made it. Night club owner Jack Ruby stepped out of the crowd and shot him with a pistol. Oswald was rushed to hospital where he died of his wounds. At that moment it seemed to me the world had descended into madness. I had never before seen such a thing! On Monday, Nov. 25, 1963 television sets were in place in every classroom in our school so students and teachers could watch Kennedy’s state funeral. Like our American neighbours, Canadians joined in mourning the loss of the youngest president in U.S. history. Kennedy was just 46. I won’t go into great detail because no American president, with the possible exception of Franklin D. Roosevelt, has had so much written about them. The number of

Help families in need this Christmas by donating to the Tree of Hope By Hollie Pratt-Campbell hpratt-campbell@perfprint.ca

Heritage Lifestyle - What does the holiday season mean to you? For most of us, this is a time to catch up with friends and family over special meals and the exchanging of gifts. For clients of Family and Children’s Services of Kingston, Frontenac Lennox & Addington, however, this can be a very tough time of year. Many live in poverty and are unable to provide their children with anything close to the storybook Christmas they long to have. For over 100 years, members of the community have been helping Family and Children’s Services assist these families by generously donating toys and money. “We were started in 1895,” explains community relations manager John Suart. “Sir John A. Macdonald had just died, that’s

how long ago it was. Even though back then we were a non-profit, almost church-run organization, we always had Christmas appeals at various times…So when it comes to Christmas appeal we’re the granddaddy of all things in Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox & Addington.” These days, the annual Christmas campaign is known as the Tree of Hope. The name came about from the Christmas trees found in the lobby of the organization’s headquarters at this time of year. On the trees are names of children who have been referred to the program, whom donors are invited to buy gifts for. The signature stars on the trees have grown into a key symbol for the program. “We really want people to understand that they are the star on the tree of hope,” says fund development manager Laura Lee

Hogan. “The glittering star is really a symbol of Christmas. The star is prominent in our logo...We really want people to understand that the visual of the star passing from hand to hand is almost symbolic of the generosity that the donors are giving to help out the families.” Suart notes that he hopes the true spirit of Christmas will help inspire people to participate in the program, and that contributing to the Tree of Hope will likewise remind them of the message that lies at the heart of the season. “We get so busy shopping and doing other things and we’re so busy trying to find time that we forget that Christmas was originally all about giving. Here’s an example of some kids with families in real need, and here’s a way, simple and easy that they can actually get some of that Christmas spirit.” While gifts for children of all ages are welcome,

Suart reminds community members not to forget about teenagers when they’re choosing what to buy. “Oftentimes we get gifts that are designed for relatively young children, and yet we have kids in care who are teenagers and they still need to have Christmas too. So they can think about something that may appeal to a teenager, or give something like a gift card or something else that might actually work for a number of different ages.” Suart and Hogan are also quick to point out, however, that it is not mandatory for those looking to help out to necessarily purchase Christmas gifts. A new online tool, called the Catalogue of Hopes and Dreams, allows community members to choose a specific Family and Children’s Services program they would like to donate to.

Get

“This is something that’s new for us,” Hogan explains. “If they go directly to [the Catalogue of Hopes and Dreams] on our website they can click on the Tree of Hope symbol [or any of our other programs] and choose a dollar amount they would like to donate.” Other programs include bursaries and summer camps. “Our business is to protect children from abuse and neglect, and we have some of the most deserving children and families that you can ever imagine for our clients,” Suart notes. “They really need help. So we’re asking, maybe your family can help one of our families this season. There’s stuff for Christmas and they can also do stuff for the summer or year-round to help our kids. They are very deserving people.” For more information, or to donate, visit www.facsfla.ca.

Bottle Tree brings back The Sound of Music just in time for the holiday season hpratt-campbell@perfprint.ca

Gazette Entertainment - How do you solve a problem like two Marias? According to Charles Robertson of Bottle Tree Productions, who is directing two separate casts in this year’s production of The Sound of Music, it’s really not that big of a problem at all, actually. “It’s maybe one and a half times the work,” he says. “The Sound of Music is great because it has lots of roles for kids and roles for women. I’ve worked with young people in theatre for a long time. It’s tough finding plays that have a lot of women’s and kids’ roles in them. We’re doing [The Sound of Music] a second year in a row and that’s one of the reasons. I like to double cast because we just have so many talented women and so many talented kids.” One of the Marias is Sara

Sturgeon, who played the same role in Bottle Tree’s Sound of Music production last year. “I’ve watched the movie since I was a kid and it’s always been my favourite movie,” she says. In fact, being a part of the musical represents the fulfillment of a longtime goal for Sturgeon. “I was always obsessed with the show, and when I was eight or nine Mirvish was doing a production in Toronto. I wrote to the casting director and said I wanted to audition. I had no theatre experience or anything. They sent me back an email and said sure, sing these two songs. I went in and I didn’t know how to sing. It was the worst audition ever. But I did it and it was so also the best thing ever. Ten years later, I’m doing it for real.” Sturgeon shares the spotlight with Erinn Roberts, Bottletree’s other Maria. “This is my first time in the role

of Maria, but I grew up watching the movie,” Roberts says. “I think I’ve known every word since I was five… It’s a lot of fun [sharing the lead role] because you have your ideas of what you want it to be like and then you see another person do it and you get other ideas because they do it differently. They’re both good, just different.” She adds, however, that “I think we have pretty similar ideas of who Maria is and her character,” which allows the show to maintain the same overall tone regardless of who is starring. While Roberts may be new to the Bottle Tree family, Sturgeon and Robertson both stress that audiences are sure to be blown away by her talent. “I think when people see Erinn onstage they’ll go, ‘Where was she all this time’?” says Robertson. “When I first saw her sing, I thought, ‘That’s

the Maria I would have wanted,’ adds Sturgeon graciously. Robertson remarks that it’s no coincidence The Sound of Music has become a holiday favourite, of sorts, despite the fact that the plot has nothing to do with Christmas. “I’ve done other shows at Christmastime that aren’t necessarily Christmas shows, like Miracle Worker, but audiences can have a really good time and feel inspired. I think the Sound of Music is so uplifting. At the end when Mother Abbess is doing Climb Every Mountain, it’s quite an emotional journey for the audience and it’s really rewarding for them because they’ve invested the time in this family and Maria and then everything’s all wonderful at the end.” Indeed, Robertson notes that the process of rehearsing the musical

Save ->iÊ ˜`Ã

iVi“LiÀÊÓ{̅

has likewise been excellent and uplifting for all involved – which, he says, was also no accident. “I think the cast is really, really good and it’s a really positive experience,” he says. “[Bottle Tree co-director] Anne Marie [Mortensen] and I are always looking for people with good character. That’s what we want in our shows because we’re dealing with kids. We want to make sure that we’ve got really high quality people.” The Sound of Music runs Dec. 5-7 and 12-14 at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, located at 130 Clergy St. Doors open at 7 p.m. and curtain time is 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available through the Grand Theatre box office, at www.bottletreeinc. com and at the door. The price is $18 for children, $20 for students and seniors and $25 for adults.

Newcomer Polesello excited to play for Fronts By Mark Kerr Reporter

Gazette Sports - Robert Polesello recently joined the Kingston Frontenacs with one goal in mind. “I came here to win a championship. That’s my No. 1 goal. I could care less about personal success as long as the team is winning,” said Polesello, who was playing in his sophomore season with the University of Vermont Catamounts before departing on Nov. 12. Kingston drafted the Bolton, Ont., native in the fifth round of the 2010 Ontario Hockey League Priority Selection. Even though he remained

committed to playing college hockey in the United States, Polesello kept in touch with Kingston general manager Doug Gilmour. They talked every summer, and Gilmour made it known the Frontenacs remained an option for Polesello. Several factors – the most important being the Frontenacs’ impressive start to the season – influenced Polesello’s decision to jump to the OHL. Polesello was also discouraged to find himself in and out of the Catamounts’ lineup early in his sophomore season even though he played every game as a freshman. “I would say it was a style thing, and I was not in the role I expected to be in,” he said. “I thought Kings-

ton could put me in a role I was comfortable with and I would be able to step up and make a bigger contribution.” Polesello was also familiar with Kingston head coach Todd Gill and assistant coach Jeff Reid. Polesello was a member of Team Canada East, a squad that Gill guided to a silver medal at the World Jr. A Challenge in 2010. Polesello won a gold medal at the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge in 2011 playing for Team Ontario, and Reid was a member of the coaching staff. Polesello believes those experiences will help him fit in with the Frontenacs. “Being a bit older, I feel I can add some leadership,” said Polesello, 19. “Having played on three different teams (over the past four years), I have been able to develop my communication skills with teammates.” Polesello scored his first OHL goal against the London Knights on Nov. 15. He tallied again the next game versus the Ottawa 67’s and assisted on two other goals. Polesello said he doesn’t feel any added pressure to prove himself right away with the Frontenacs. “I definitely want to come here and show I have something to offer,” he added. After pulling on a Frontenacs jersey for several games, Polesello has been asked to compare the OHL and the NCAA. The speed and physicality is similar in both leagues, he said, but the overall style of game is much different. “Teams value the puck a lot

more in the OHL and it’s a skill of tricky,” he said. “I like to play game. The NCAA is much more sys- mostly old tunes, mostly anything tems focused, dump and chase and that’s easy, three chords and an easy trap.
