News & Politics CORNWALL CO M M U N I T Y POLICE NEWS: SEPTEMBER TRAFFIC ACTION PLAN The C o r n w a l l Community Police Service’s Traffic Action Plan for the month of September will consist of targeted enforcement of Speeding within the School Zones. Police Officers will target motor vehicles that are found speeding within the School Zones in the City of Cornwall. The Cornwall Community Police will also be looking for any other infractions that might occur in these areas. Obey the maximum speed limit posted on signs along our roads and highways, but always drive at a speed that will let you stop safely. As a general rule, drive at the same speed as traffic around you without going over the speed limit. Speeding within the Community Safety Zones may result in fines being as much as double in price as opposed to speeding in other parts of the city.

CORNWALL RIVER KINGS FANS WON’T SAY CHECKMATE TO HOCKEY SEASON JUST YET Cornwall Ontario — George Williams and Nicholas Papineau were among several Cornwall River Kings hockey fans standing outside the Civic Complex last Thursday at the Cornwall Colts home opener. The pair were gathering signatures in support of saving the Cornwall River Kings franchise. According to Denis Boisvert, V-p communications for the LNAH, the River Kings 2013-2014 season will be saved! After several days of uncertainty, the Ligue nord-américaine de hockey announced today that the Cornwall River Kings will undertake the 20132014 season. The Commissioner of the LNAH, Michel Godin, met a group of investors Tuesday evening in Cornwall. After several hours of discussion, an agreement was reached between Bernard Villeneuve current owner and the business group of men to carry out the sale of the River Kings. The team will continue to bear the name of the River Kings and would like to use the same logo of last year. The investors group wants to install the franchise firmly and long-term in the city of Cornwall. Talking about that home opener, The Cornwall Colts won that game 2-1 versus Hawkesbury. Jay DAmour and Marly Quince both scored power play goals and goalie James Edwardson saved 25 of 26 shots for the Colts. Read Ashley March's full review of the game in the Sports section of this week's paper. My name is Jason Setnyk, and these are the Seeker Snippets for this week! Jason Setnyk is a local high school teacher, journalist, published and award winning author, photographer, arts and culture event coordinator, and a community volunteer sitting on numerous boards and committees. http: //

Packrat Organization 101 with Marie Morrell

Most people neglect private spaces in their homes, thinking since nobody will ever see them, it doesn't really matter whether or not they are neat and organized. Your master bedroom should be your peaceful heaven, the place where you unwind, relax and rejuvenate. It is the first thing you see when you wake up every morning. It sets the tone for the rest of your day. If you open your eyes to clutter, you will start your day feeling overwhelmed. Opening your eyes to organization will motivate you.

Sept # 1. Declutter Your goal is to get as much stuff out of your way as possible. If you are undecided about an item, move it out of the room and give yourself one day to decide what to do with it. Quickly grab anything belonging in another room and relocate it to the appropriate room. If an item is no longer used, wanted, or needed, dispose of it (trash, donate, recycle or sell). Be ruthless going through your closet and dresser drawers. If you have not worn something in six months (at least one season), discard it. Go through your closet and dresser drawers every season.

Sept # 2. Cleaning process Now that your room is decluttered, give it a thorough cleaning.

Vacuum your mattress. Wash the mattress cover, sheets, and pillows, and remake your bed. Wash your bedspread, or take it to the cleaner as needed. Bring all of the dirty laundry to the laundry room. Keep doing the laundry until everything has been washed, dried, folded, or ironed, and put away. To save time, fold and put away your laundry as soon as the dryer cycle finishes and you’ll minimize or eliminate the need to iron. Take window curtains down and throw them in the dryer to remove dust, then wash or take to them to the cleaner as appropriate. Wash the windows and blinds. Wash the overhead light fixture and ceiling fan blades. Vacuum using the crevice attachment to get into the corners and along the walls. Use the extension attachment to clear dust and cobwebs from the ceiling. Dust all surfaces - headboard, footboard, pictures, and wall hangings. Using a product like "Swiffer" to remove dust does miracles. Always put your dirty clothes in the hamper basket before going to bed. Always hang/put away (clothes and jewellery) right after you’ve finished wearing them instead of leaving them lying around.

Sept # 3. Keep your room organized If you have children, make a new household rule that absolutely no toys are allowed in the master bedroom. Establish that this is your space, and stand your ground. Take the time to make your bed every morning. It takes less than three minutes for a king-size bed. Open your window blinds every morning and let the sunshine in. Sunshine makes a room look nice, clean, and helps the room feel warm and cozy. Wash your bed sheets at least once a week. If you experience night sweats or hot flashes, it may be best to change the bed more frequently. Try not to eat or drink in bed, chancing spills or crumbs that may attract bugs or disrupt comfortable sleeping. People with allergies should change their bed linen as often as possible. Dust mites and other allergens collect on bed linen and

can aggravate allergies, causing runny noses, stuffed sinuses, and other problems lasting all day long. In fact, some people with severe allergies are forced to change bed linens each day to prevent allergic reactions. It's usually best to own at least three sets of bed linens. You will sleep better when your sheets are freshly washed. If you have a laundry hamper in your bedroom, keep it under control. If you read or do projects in bed, use your nightstand drawer or keep a small storage bin tucked under your bed to store your current project materials. Vacuum and dust thoroughly at least once a week. If you find you are gradually starting to slip and your master bedroom begins to look cluttered again, simply repeat step # 1 and # 2.

I am trying to keep up with my vegetable garden. It seems that everything is ripening at the same time. My beautiful ever-bearing raspberries are doing just that. I am picking about 2 or 3 quarts every few days. I freeze them to enjoy during the cold winter months. Last week, I picked loads of roma tomatoes and sweet and hot peppers as well. With them, I made two batches of spaghetti sauce and a batch of chili sauce. I'll give you my recipe for the spaghetti sauce this week and the recipe for the chili sauce next week. If you have your own vegetable garden, I hope you are keeping up with all of the veggies. Enjoy a great week!

An investors group comprised of David Small, Gokan Karakus and Cory Linthorne are your new River Kings owners. It was a hard fought battle to come up with a plan in less than 24 hours but these 3 gentleman pulled it off and wowed Michel Godin, the Commissioner of the LNAH. “A marathon of negotiations and negotiations took place over the past 24 hours to complete this happy ending. Mr David Small, Gokan Karakus and Cory Linthorne (the new owners of River Kings) are welcome in the great family of the LNAH. Your efforts over the past few days will allow the City of Cornwall to continue this adventure in the LNAH. I hope that the entire region is behind you to show support.” The new owners are also proud to bring back aboard a man who needs no introduction in Cornwall. Al Wagar will be back with the River Kings as the team’s General Manager. Also, captain Steve Simoes will be taking on the role of player/coach. Adding to even more of the good news is the return of the logo from last year’s inaugural season. The River Kings came under fire when part way through this summer the decision was made to change the logo entirely. Ultimately this decision was scrapped with the new owners taking over. More positive and exciting announcements within the River Kings front office (complete with some familiar faces) will be coming out in the next few days. The pressure isn’t over yet however. Cornwall now turns its attention over to their second LNAH training camp with only weeks to go before the start of the season. Get out your horns Cornwall! GO KINGS GO!

Another beautiful summer in Cornwall, Ontario is coming to a close. Ending with it is Freedom TaekwonDo’ s fifth successful Taekwon Do Leadership Camp. This year the camp hosted children between the ages of 4 and 13 with a wide variety of personalities, talents and hobbies. The campers were kept busy every morning with two full hours of Taekwon-Do Training and self defense lessons followed by an afternoon of constant alternating activities. There were field trips to the swimming pool, a trip to the St. Andrews water slide (a special thanks to the fire fighters and volunteers for that great success), and to the staff at Cornwall’s OPG for an educational adventure. The afternoons spent at the camp were put to good use by the campers and staff creating their own obstacle courses. There were also arts and crafts, Lego building activities and other sports available for afternoon fun.

After a summer full of activities and never ending entertainment, Ms. Villeneuve is looking forward to next summer, though has found other activities to keep her busy for the winter such as her regular classes and adding a much requested monthly self defense class for women to her schools regime. For more information on programs available call Freedom Taekwon-Do at 613936-2443. Shown in photo are some of the Summer Camp children under the tie dye t-shirts done one afternoon during camp.

On a special night in front of a hometown crowd of 829, the Cornwall Colts put all the drama between them and the LNAH’s Cornwall River Kings in the back of their minds and played an exciting game of hockey to open the 2013/2014 season. Commissioner Kevin Abrams started off the pre game speeches congratulating the Colts on their hard fought win of the Bogart Cup last spring. The championship banner was raised to the rafters of the Ed Lumley Arena in honour of their efforts. From there, it was time to usher in the home opener. The first brought a solid period of hockey with both teams playing evenly. Cornwall’s Grant Cooper had two brilliant scoring chances early on but was stopped by the glove of Hawkesbury’s Guillaum Therien. Although the teams seemed to match one another, the Hawks were pulling away with better opportunities both offensively and defensively. Hawkesbury’s Trent Durocher used his size to his advantage to keep the Colts away from the net. Nicholas Vlahos capitalized on the opportunity and put one past Cornwall netminder James Edwardson. The Hawks went into the third with not only the lead but a commanding presence on the ice. At the same time they also went into the third with a 4 minute major. The Colts sensing the need to rally did just that as Jay D’Amour got on the powerplay and tapped in a rebound from a Matthew Cruickshank shot. Marley Quince added another powerplay goal not even a minute later. Cornwall killed off a 5 on 3 near the end of the period. Cornwall’s goaltender Edwardson played solid until the very last second. CCHL’S THREE STARS: 1. Marley Quince (COR) 2. Grant Cooper (COR) 3. Nicholas Vlahos (HWK) MARCH’S THREE STARS: 1. Marley Quince (COR) - Obviously a no-brainer. Quince’s hockey sense and presence on the ice has him at number one. His ability to read a pass and where the play is going next keeps him as one of Cornwall’s top stars. 2. Trent Durocher (HWK) - Although he didn’t contribute on the scoresheet, Durocher’s ability to keep Cornwall out of Hawkesbury’s end is something that should be commended. Of course, his 6’4 frame doesn’t hurt in the regard either. Keeping my eye on him throughout the season. 3. James Edwardson (COR) - Goaltenders often get the short end of the stick (no pun intended) but Edwardson stepped up to the plate tonight and bailed out the Colts on many occasions. Great first game between the pipes.

One of my best friend’s joined me and so a Saturday morning yoga class was planned. We didn’t go back in baby steps either, no we attended a Hot Yoga level 1-2 class. Now I have tried Hot Yoga before in Cornwall, but when I was in better shape, and before the car accident from last winter, so with trepidation, I laid out my yoga mat and embarked on the journey back. I expected I would have some difficulties and already planned to not overdo it. I had to return at my own pace and this class would test my skills, show me where I lacked strength and what I needed to work on. As this is the week I start working with a personal fitness trainer student at SLC Kingston campus, it helped me determine my goals and will be worked into my schedule. I met my personal trainer Kristofer Klith a student in his final year who will work with me over the next nine weeks to establish goals, test my fitness level, strengthen muscles and tone my body. I am ready for this challenge, and with Kris’s help, I will stay on target. I already have started eating healthier meals, getting rid of unnecessary stressors and focusing on what I want to attain. As I explained to Kris, I am not concerned with weight loss, as I have never been weight conscious, however, I would like to tone my muscles and increase my upper body strength and abdomen area. Will it be easy? Not at all, I know I have to work fitness into my life, with yoga, walking, strength training, free weights etc. I am determined, as I know this is what I want to achieve, now with a little guidance and some balance and calm, I am working towards my fitness goals. Namaste.

There are restorative powers in Yoga. After over a year’s absence, I have returned to the practice of yoga. It isn’t an easy journey back as I slowly have to adjust to the positions again and my own body and mind’s resistance; but it will be worth it. When I lived in Cornwall I practiced regularly and could see the difference it made in me. I was stronger, more focused, balanced and my flexibility was at its peak. Now that I am settling in a new community, I decided to indulge again and so I signed up for a 3 month trial at a local studio just a few blocks from where I now reside.

The styles that are in for this Fall Season are very colourful and oh, so comfortable. Tights of many colours with wild and crazy designs seem to be the rage this year. Along with wearing tights, you are to be matching them up with BIG, bulky sweaters to keep you warm and of course stylish. Next week I'll be talking about the types of hats that can keep you warm while keeping you stylish at the same time.

Tip of the week: With this colder weather, you are to keep your lips soft and supple, by using lipstick, lipgloss or chapstick. Did you know that lipstick is one of the most-sold beauty products in the world? Pretty lips make for prettier smiles. :D I had the utmost pleasure to do something that I have always wanted to do this week. I started at Lil' Pole Fitness with owner and chief instructor, Shannon Champagne. There is an Open House this Sunday, September 15th, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Come on down to check it out for yourselves at 101 9th St.West. I'll be there to see all of the fun activities that are scheduled.

I also wanted to mention that my granddaughter, Abigail turned 10 this week. My how the years have passed by - Happy Birthday Abigail. Love Always Nana. "I" is the ONLY difference between FIT & FAT!!!

Until next time... Keep Smiling. Marlene Baker of


PASSION for FASHION by Marlene Baker

Time to get your "Fall Wardrobe" together ladies and gents. The thrift stores here in Cornwall have many new and gently worn items for you to purchase. In doing so you are helping others less fortunate in our community.

Spiders Okay, maybe this is not in the range of what is considered to be normal, but I have a confession to make. I like spiders. Now that fall is almost here, I am seeing more of them. I am seeing their webs too! I’m not the only one who appreciates these tiny and not so tiny creatures. I once had the privilege of joining in on a bog walk in Nova Scotia with a botanist and other nature freaks like myself. Apart from seeing some beautiful orchids in the bog, which was the intent of the walk, other items of interest caught our eyes as we proceeded through the bog. We walked single file so as to disrupt the vegetation and all that lived in it, to a minimum. The botanist must have, at one point, seen a spider’s web. Without any words, he made a detour from the obvious “path” and without any words we all did the same, each of us in turn remarking to ourselves, the beautiful work of art of the creator of a magnificent web. If, like me, you don’t mind getting close to a spider, you will notice the pattern, the shape, and size of spiders, and see that they can have a vast array of shapes, colours, and intricate designs on their backs. Have you ever been surprised by a dock spider? Your lazy, relaxed and carefree siesta on the dock, after a cool swim in the lake, can be quickly transformed into a heart thumping experience if you are caught unawares by one of these magnificent creatures! They are not after you; they are just looking for their next meal! I notice that some spiders make fuzzy webs, some make webs that have a cone like tunnel built into them, and some are like the ones that Charlotte made for Wilber in the book “Charlotte’s Web”, which is maybe the origin of my appreciation of spiders. Before I close, let me make myself clear. I like spiders to be outside where they belong, and where I can observe them from a comfortable distance. I’m not the type to have spiders in a terrarium. It’s just not my thing.

Work to Become a Better Investor As we approach the end of yet another summer, many Canadians are giving thought to the last long weekend - Labour Day. A federal holiday since 1894, Labour Day celebrates the achievements of workers — people, like yourself, who work hard for their money. But to make progress toward your long-term financial goals, you need to do more than just earn money — you have to invest it wisely. And that takes work, too. Fortunately, there’s no real mystery to the types of labour in which you’ll need to engage to become a good investor. Here are a few suggestions: Work at making investing a priority. Many people delay investing until they “have a better handle” on their finances. But these good intentions frequently go unfulfilled because there will always be something else on which to spend one’s money. To work toward your important goals, such as a comfortable retirement or a child's education, you need to put away some money regularly. If you’re just starting out in your career, you might not be able to afford much, but even a small amount can help. And when your salary increases, so can your investment contributions. To make it easier on yourself, consider arranging for your bank to automatically move money each month from your chequing or savings account into an investment account. Work to understand what’s in your portfolio. Some investors aren’t certain about what investments they own — and this uncertainty can lead to poor decision-making if it becomes necessary to make changes. So make sure you know what’s in your portfolio — and why.

Work to keep your portfolio current with your goals. Even if you know why you initially purchased certain investments and how they fit into your portfolio, you can’t put things on “autopilot.” Over time, your goals may evolve, which means you’ll need to be vigilant in working with your Edward Jones advisor to adjust your portfolio accordingly. Work to diversify your holdings. No matter where you are in your life, you should still diversify your portfolio by owning a variety of investments — stocks, bonds, government securities and other vehicles. Consequently, you’ll need to review your portfolio regularly to ensure that it’s still properly diversified. Diversification is a strategy designed to help reduce the effects of volatility on your holdings, but keep in mind that even a diversified portfolio can’t guarantee profits or protect against loss. Work to maintain a long-term perspective. No matter what you might hear from anyone else, there’s no “shortcut” to investment success. Many people hope they will “hit” on that one investment that will make them rich quickly — but that’s pretty much a fantasy. To help achieve your goals, you will need to invest for many years, through good markets and bad. And during those inevitable downturns, you’ll need to focus on your long-term objectives and follow a consistent investment strategy, making only those adjustments that make sense for your situation. As you can see, you’ll need to work on many aspects of investing to stay on the road toward success. But you don’t have to work alone: Investing can be complex, so you may want to get help from a financial professional — someone who knows both the investment world and your individual needs, goals and risk tolerance.
