EDITOR IN CHIEF: Julia Lucio

I won't be Charl ie Charlie Hebdo is a French Satirical weekly magazine that basically features cartoons, jokes,reports on current topics. It is very controversial and definitely non-conformist. Charlie Hebdo defines itself as above all secular and atheist, far left-wing and anti-racism. It steadily makes fun of religion and politics, especially the extreme right. There is nothing wrong with that. It is, after all, freedom of speech. Over the years, Charlie Hebdo has been the victim of many law suits and a few terrorist attacks. The attacks were deemed to be the direct result of a series of controversial Muhammad Cartoons published

therein. When, earlier this year, the offices of Charlie Hebdo were attacked, I remember feeling really sad to see what some people are capable in the name of religion and over things that, to me, seem so trivial. Doodles! Can you imagine loosing your life for drawing a cartoon? After the attacks, worldwide supporters of freedom of expression adopted the phrase "I am Charlie" to show solidarity and honor to those who lost their lives in the violent strike. I

remember changing my profile pic on Facebook. I am a huge advocate of Free Speech and as such, felt compelled to join in the protest. But this week, Charlie Hebdo went too far. In a cartoon depicting young toddler Aylan (Alan) Kurdi, face down, dead on the beach, next to a Happy Meal McDonald's ad, Charlie Hebdo has brought freedom of speech back to barbaric times. They have missed the target. They have proven that their poor taste and insensitivity knows no bound. Mocking a child's death for "the greater good" reflects poorly not only on them, but also on society.

- River Kings win pre-season opener

See, Charlie Hebdo, it seems, felt that the only way to really reach people about the refugee crisis, was to create something so shockingly disgusting that it would force people to talk about it. And talk, they did. Outrage came from everywhere. People, even free speech supporters are criticizing the publication and judging their actions as being "in poor taste, offensive and condemnable." Legal action is already being taken against the magazine. Freedom of expression didn't win anything here. In fact, it lost.

DON'T M ISS

I always say that my freedom of speech ends where another human being's freedom of speech begins. This is a perfect example. This is NOT freedom of expression, it's freedom of humiliation, which really, is not a thing. To Charlie Hebdo: If thousands of people don't get your "satire", perhaps it's time to realize you are not doing it right. Until then, I won't be Charlie.

NEWS & POLITICS Cl ement kicked of f campaign in Morrisburg - On Sunday September 6th, Liberal Candidate Bernadette Clement officially kicked off her campaign at the Russell Manor in Morrisburg. Clement delivered a speech on the steps of the Manor that touched on some election issues including the Canadian recession and the Syrian refugee crisis. ?We did not choose Morrisburg as a destination for our launch. In some way, Morrisburg chose us. Since this campaign started, we?ve seen a tremendous amount of support pouring in from this region from lawn sign requests to donations . It?s been remarkable. We?ve even received calls and emails from conservative voters who are fed up with the performance of this government and their representation?, explained Clement.

Burgers send campaign int o high gear - Last Friday was an exciting night for Patrick Burger supporters in Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry as approximately 75 people crowded the NDP office to cheer on their candidate?s official campaign launch. ?Why are we all here tonight?? Patrick Burger asked his supporters, with some shouting the issues dearest to them. ?Each one of us came through that door because we believe the NDP can win in October, and we believe that we can win this riding.? Burger spoke to the audience about the NDP?s plan for change if elected on October 19, with applause when touching on the Senate of Canada, the Harper Government?s infamous privacy legislation, Bill C-51, and the need to improve public healthcare, pensions, and childcare.

TRO TTIER/TRO TZIER YOU ARE ETERNAL! Before fashion jewelry became the delight of vendors, a few years back, I succeeded to AWAKEN a 'great grandmother' who like many others, had been programmed to be obedient to the dictates of the religio-socio doctrines: "Thou shalt be meek. Thou shalt suffer because of Eve ..." and most of you know the words forced subliminally upon her and other females' minds and lifestyles. Well ... I was helping a friend sell her gorgeous fashion jewelry in her boutique which resonated with the thrilling notes of exclusivity. One afternoon, in walked the great grandmother with two other friends and- like little girls - began to touch, examine, exclaim on the scintillating beauty of the necklaces, some of which were even Coco Channel's designer makes. This particular great grandmother decided to remove her tiny

chain with her zodiac sign, and try on a large pendant with a gem stone to match her azure eyes. Her friends with open expressions of admiration exclaimed, "You look gorgeous!"

However, with trained, humbled fingers she began to unclasp it and was ready to set it down when I exclaimed, "You look stunning, Madam. This pendant is: You! It belongs to You!" "No! No! What will my husband say?!" "He is not your master. You are a free woman, aren't you?" I retorted. Silence. Then she stated, "But I'm too old. I'm 80 years old." "You are not old! You are eternal. Yes you have no age in this wonderful Divine Universe. You are a scintillating, youthful, beautiful Infinite Woman." These words like some magic wand struck her most inner being: her immortal soul! "You are right! I am Eternal! I am taking the pendant!" With glowing eyes of youthful coquettishness, she paid and put on the azure pendant back on, while the tiny zodiac and its tiny chain went into her pocket book. As she walked towards the door, she turned to me, "Thank you! Yes, I am Eternal!" and she gave me the warmest hug I ever got in my life, whileI whispered, "You are Eternal. We are all Eternal! With her azure eyes shining like the azure sky she answered, "I always thought so!"

Great Big Int erview wit h Sean McCann Int erview and Concert Phot os by Jason Set nyk.

Cornwall Ontario ? September 19th, 2015 will bring two accomplished songwriters, Sean McCann of Great Big Sea and Graham Greer of the Barstool Prophets, together in Cornwall?s beautiful Aultsville Theatre for an intimate evening of songs and the stories that surround them. Here is Jason Setnyk?s interview with former Great Big Sea member Sean McCann.

Five Quest ions wit h Sean McCann 1 ? What was your f ondest memory during your t went y years as a member of Great Big Sea? My fondest memories are all from the very early days when it was just the 4 of us (with Darrell Power on bass) and we did everything by ourselves. We didn?t have an agent or a manager or a label, but we were still a force to be reckoned with. I am very proud of what we were able to accomplish when we were all working together towards the same goal. 2 ? How is t he recording process dif f erent post -GBS? What was it l ike working wit h Joel Pl asket t who produced your debut al bum? How do t hese recordings bet t er represent who you are / your vision / your message? In my 20 years and 11 studio recordings with Great Big Sea, not one track was ever recorded ?live off the floor? which is a shame because we were a great live band. Joel?s process was completely the opposite. Every Song was recorded live without digital assistance and immediately committed to 2 inch analog tape. There was no ?Auto Tune? button. I was forced as an Artist to remain completely open and focused which is how I am trying to live my life today.

5 ? What can music f ans expect f rom your show Sept ember 19t h at Aul t svil l e Theat re in Cornwal l ? Fans can expect to experience a much lighter ?me?. I am doing ?the work? and am reconnecting with the world in a far more meaningful way. And I love my job.

3 ? How did growing up in St . John?s Newf oundl and inf l uence your music?

Thank you for the interview Sean McCann.

St. John?s is the New Orleans of Canada. It is made of music and liquor and my music was forged in that fire.

Thank you Jason.

4 ? In an int erview wit h CBC you described some l if e changes, such as quit t ing drinking. How el se has your l if e changed post -GBS? Have you f ound what you are l ooking f or in l if e or is it an on going journey?

ATTENTION- ATTENTION

I am still looking and I have come to embrace the truth that I always will be. At least now I am wide awake so I can see where I am going and I am open and unafraid of whatever might be next.

More about t he Concert : Reserved seating tickets are on sale now for $25.00 plus applicable surcharges. Tickets are available in person at the Cornwall Civic Complex Box Office or by phone at 613-938-9400. You can also by tickets online: www.admission.com (search ?Sean McCann?). Tickets will also be available at the Aultsville Theatre box office one hour before show time (subject to availability).

Hi there to all of you wonderful people reading ~The Seeker~ this week. I have been really enjoying the last of the Summer days with my Johnny, by going to Lakeview Beach (near Long Sault.) and relaxing whilst taking in all of the sights and sounds of the Great Outdoors. It is very relaxing and calming to one's soul, to do so. We really must STOP and SMELL the Roses, or the pretty, pink Peonies or even the Black-eyed Susans to come to think of it, as we walk along Life's Pathway. We must take the time to relax and get away from the busy-ness of our every day lives. It certainly helps calm our "Inner Spirit" and allows us to "Heal" from difficult circumstances or occurances such as a loved one passing away. Nothing is better than "Getting Away" from what ever ails us. Tip of the Week: Here are SIX things that Mentally Strong People Do!!! 1. They MOVE ON! They don't waste time feeling sorry for themselves. 2. They EMBRACE CHANGE! They welcome challenges. 3. They STAY HAPPY! They don't waste energy on things they cannot control. 4. They are KIND, FAIR & are Unafraid to Speak up. 5. They are willing to take CALCULATED RISKS! 6. They CELEBRATE other people's SUCCESSES! They don't resent that success. I feel that I must share with you that my cute little Persian kitty, Cloud, is doing very well. He is now four months old and has grown a lot since he came into our lives, a little over a month ago. Johnny and I take the time each day to play with him and make him feel like part of our home and our lives. If you have a pet, it can be easy to forget that they have needs, wants and feelings of their own, too. Do make sure to spend time to take your dog for a walk, or to play with your cat, hamster or even your snake... Right, Danielle Sauve??? (She has a pet snake that she named Noodles.) Fish, Well you can't really play with them too much, but you can make sure any pet is taken care of with good food, a clean area to live and to play in, etc. Giving them the attention that our four-legged, two-legged or our no-legged friends deserve. I wrote about the "Healing Power of Cat Purrs, a few columns ago. It is so amazing how this works to calm, relax, and apparently heal us, too!!! It Can Even Make Us Live Longer!!! What better reason is there to spend time with your loving pets??? Here are a few more reasons for you. Research has shown that a pet in the home can ward off Allergies by

over 30% , (as published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.) Pet owners also have lower levels of stress and a pet in your home can also lower levels of Depression. There are even some hospitals that have begun using "Pet-facilitated Therapy." (PFT). So, if you have a pet, please spend more time with him or her every day. They depend on us as we depend on them to help us be calmer, happier, and even healthier humans. Your Health and Happiness Will Improve As A Result. Please HUG YOUR PET TODAY!!!

Family News: My first granddaughter, Abigail, turned 12 last Friday. The family, Mom, Dad, Sampson & wee William and I, went to St Hubert's for her Birthday Dinner. Abigail loved all of the presents that John and I got for her, a pretty, ceramic angel, a card and the rest was jewelery, including a matching bejeweled necklace, earrings and bracelet for when she goes out on the town or shopping with me. Along with our gifts, she loved the two dollies from her Mom and Dad. We enjoyed our delicious chicken meals, along with the yummy desserts afterwards. The service was Superb and the waitresses helped sing "Happy Birthday"!!! Melinda, her Mom, painted her bedroom door like the one in Dr. Who. She was totally over-joyed with this Special Gift. The kind of gift that keeps on giving and giving... every time she opens her bedroom door. May more of your ~Special Dreams~ & *Wishes* come true in the upcoming year my dear granddaughter. Good Luck in Grade 7 this year!!! Love Always, Nana. Item of the Week: As you have all come to know me, (through my many columns, over these past 2 years) that I LOVE to have "Unique Things." This week I have choosen another of my treasures to share with you. They are these sweet, little hand- made, wooden purses that I purchased from an online auction for ONLY $5.00. They truly are UNIQUE!!! Don't You think??? All I have to do is find me a pair of wooden shoes to go with them. Now, There's A Challenge For Me!!! Perhaps in Holland??? Until Next Week: It's Not Who You Are That Holds You Back... It's Who You Think You Are Not. Your mind stands between the, "I Cannot Do That!" & the, "I Can Do Anything!" Which One Will YOU Pick??? I do hope that you choose the Right One!!! Don't be the one at the end of your Life, that says," I wished that I had did this or that!!!" Marlene Baker of www.fashionography.ca & www.photodreams.ca

I CAN'T DO THAT! OH YES YOU CAN!

FRO M M Y PANTRY

Sha ry n

THO M PSO N I'm talking about making a batch of homemade crab apple jelly. It isn't at all difficult to do. Once you have confidence in yourself, you can cook anything. Years ago, I helped to teach 4-H classes in Maxville with Di Jaggassaar. One of the best times was when we taught a breadmaking course. Ten year old girls, on thier own, had a batch of bread rising in their kitchens while their parents were doing barn chores. I was so proud of INGREDIENTS: have a couple of 3 litre baskets of crab apples you will need white sugar, lemon juice, cheesecloth or an old linen tea towel, snap lids and jar rings and mason jars Amounts will vary according to how much syrup you have. METHOD: -Rinse the crab apples. Place them in a large pot and add water to be just under the surface of the apples. Bring this to a boil, turn down the heat to a simmer and allow the apples to cook until they are mushy and very tender. This will take about 1 hour. Stir occasionally during this time. -Take a very large bowl and use a linen tea towel or about 4 layers or cheesecloth. Stretch the cheesecloth over the top of the bowl. I used clothespegs to hold the cheesecloth in place. See my picture to understand how. Now spoon the apple and liquid mixture onto the top of the cheesecloth. Allow the liquid to drip through the cheesecloth, undisturbed. I let it sit overnight. In the morning, all of the liquid had dripped through. Carefully, remove the clothespins around the cheesecloth. You want to lift the cheesecloth and drained apple mixture away from the bowl of apple juice. Don't squeeze this bag at all or you will make the liquid in the bowl turn cloudy and when you boil this, your jelly won't be clear. My Mum taught me this lesson! -Discard the boiled apple mixture. Put it out for the deer if you live in the country like me. -Measure the liquid from the bowl and pour it into a clean large pot. Now measure the same amount of white sugar as the liquid and place that in the pot as well. For about 10 cups of liquid, I used 10 cups of white sugar and about 1/ 3 to 1/ 2 cup of lemon juice. -Stir to mix. Cook over medium heat. The mixture will come to a boil. Stir constantly. It will take about 30 minutes from this point. -In the meantime, place 2 saucers in your fridge freezer. You will use them to determine when your jelly is starting to gel.

them! You see, all they needed was being shown how to to it to gain confidence. I learned from my Mum how to make jam and jelly, the old fashioned way, without using any Certo. Our great grandmothers never had Certo. They used a few green apples for their pectin to set up jam. My Mum always added some lemon juice when making jam. You use equal amounts of fruit and white sugar. It is that simple. This is the perfect time of year to buy or pick crab apples to make your own jelly. Thank you to Lorraine and her husband for giving me some of their crab apples to use. Here is how I made my jelly. You must also have your mason jars washed, rinsed and sterilized. I sterilize washed and rinsed mason jars, placing them standing upright on a cookie sheet, in my oven set at 250 degrees F. for 15 minutes. Longer won't matter. Have snap lids and rings in a saucepan, ready to boil for 5 minutes when you are ready to pour the hot jelly into the prepared jars. Boiling for 5 minutes will soften the rubber ring onthe snap lid, allowing the lid to seal tightly onto the top of the jar. -Cook the syrup, skimming off any scum that will form as the jelly boils. Keep skimming off the scum. This will continue for about 10 minutes. Discard the scum. Stir the jelly occasionally to prevent scorching. When you feel the jelly is beginning to thicken a bit, take one of the cold saucers from the freezer. Ladle about a tablespoon of the jelly onto the saucer and place it back into the freezer for 1 minute. Now take the saucer from the freezer, and run your fingertip through the jelly. If it forms wrinkles, the jelly is at the correct stage to pour into the prepared hot jars. See my picture for the wrinkling. If the jelly doesn't wrinkle, rinse off the saucer, dry it and place it back into the freezer. In a few more minutes, try again and see if the jelly will wrinkle. Use the other cold saucer first. Have the pot of water and snap lids and rings boiling for 5 minutes. -Use a canning funnel and ladle the hot jelly into the hot, sterilized jars to nearly fill within a 1/ 2" from the rim of the jar. Continue to fill jars. Now, using a clean damp towel, carefully wipe the top and rim of each jar. Carefully place a snap lid onto each jar. Then apply the ring to close each jar. As the jelly cools, you will hear the lids POP. This POP means that the jar has sealed itself. The snap lid will indent slightly when it POPS. This is why they are called "Snap Lids."Any jelly jar lid that doesn't POP must be refrigerated and used quickly. Next day, label and date the jelly jars. Place them in a cool place or a cold storage. Your jelly should keep well for several years. ENJOY! NOTE: My picture as I am skimming off the scum that forms seems to have a picture of a Ghost Dog in the middle. See if you don't agree. Strange but true!

Cornwall Ontario ? Over 130 people crammed into Deke and Squeaks for the Our Jokes Are Up Here comedy tour on Friday night. The comedy tour features four top Canadian headliners, but unfortunately Rebecca Kohler was unable to attend. Jen Grant Explained on stage that Rebecca recently receive a television writing job that she could not miss. ?Basically she got a better gig?, Grant joked. Christina Walkinshaw hosted the show with a raw no holding back style of comedy that the Cornwall crowd absolutely loved. She spoke of performing at Freddy?s early in her career, her love of beer and tinder, and her views on dating that was a little off beat. But her honestly and confident delivery made her adored by the crowd who hung on her every word and laughed hysterically. Walkinshaw is a stand up comic living in Toronto, she had a half hour comedy special on television, and she was nominated for Best Female Stand Up Comic at the 2012 Canadian Comedy Awards. After a quick spot by local comedien Mark Vincent, who also promoted the show through his page Off Your Rocker, the laughs kept on rolling as Jen Grant took the stage. Right off the bat the audience fell in love with her witty charm and laid pack demeanour. Being born in Cornwall, and having ties to this town, Jen incorporated local flavour into her solid set speaking of being born at the Hotel Dieu hospital, Domtar, and she spoke of her family who live in Cornwall. The audience couldn?t get enough of Grant as she left the stage to a huge ovation. Grant has achieved virtually everything you can achieve in the world of stand-up comedy in Canada. She has performed at every major comedy festival in the country including the Just for Laughs Festival, the Halifax Comedy Festival, and the Winnipeg Comedy Festival. All of which have aired on national television. She can also be heard on CBC?s ?The Debaters? and has her own TV special on The Comedy Network. ow living in Toronto, Jen lived in New York City from 2008-2011 and had the opportunity to play major comedy clubs with such legends as Jim Bruer, Robert Klein and Louis CK. Erica Sigurdson took the stage with the audience already in tears from the other two phenomenal acts. She started off strong explaining how she flew in from Vancouver for this show (no her arms were not tired), joked around with the audience and played the crowd extremely well. Erica completely commanded the stage as she spoke of having no kids, or desire to have kids, camping in Vancouver and poked fun at the man in her life and men in general. Erica?s brilliantly written jokes with sarcastic delivery had the audience on floor in laughter. The audience could not get enough as the crowd showed their appreciation while she left the stage.

Sigurdson is best known for her wit on CBC Radio?s smash hit The Debaters. She is in high demand for radio, television and live appearances.In addition to her twenty-seven appearances on The Debaters, Erica has recorded five television specials in 2013 alone. Her comedy festival credits include Monteral Just for Laughts, The Winnipeg Comedy Festival, the Halifax Comedy Festival, the Vancouver Comedy Festival, and many others. In 2007 Erica was awarded a Leo Award for Best Comedy Screenwriting, along with co-writer Peter Kelamis, for her writing on the 21st Annual Gemini Awards.

Jung Do ? The Right Pat h ? by Brent St ang: Rpn, 2nd bl ack bel t , owner of SDG Tae Kwon Do.

The Korean term Jung Do, means to choice the right path in life. Most martial arts have a similar concept at the root of their ideas. Being a taekwondo instructor, you will notice several Korean terms in my articles.

BOOKING ENDS SOON!

Martial art schools can be divided into two main different styles of teaching. Some schools may focus simple on the fighting or sports aspect of the martial art, while others take the time to teach the origin of these techniques and often have a designed system in place to teach as the students progresses. It is impossible for any school to be this black or white in its ideas. However knowing where the main focus of the school will help someone decide if this is the school for them. The focus of the school comes from the instructor and how he/ she was taught. When looking at a martial art school, get to know the instructor prior to joining. Does the instructor know his/ hers lineage? Can he/ she proof certification? More importantly, does the instructor keep in touch with his/ her mentor? I refer to my school as a traditional martial art school,but I would never dream of trying to label another school if it is traditional or not! My personal belief is that all martial arts are amazing! It boils down to how good the instructor is and how hard a student is willing to work. Choosing the right school, but more importantly the right instructor, is the first step in choosing the right path. Always be the student, always continue to learn.
