SEEKER SNIPPETS / YOUR LOCAL COMMUNITY NEWS

Presented by Jason Setnyk News & Politics

CITY TO EXHIBIT AT THE AME CONFERENCE IN TORONTO - Cornwall’s Economic Development Department will be looking to talk to some of North America’s most productive manufacturers at the upcoming AME Conference in Toronto. Joining the Cornwall Economic Development team will be local companies Busitech and SigmaPoint to drive home the advantages of doing business in Cornwall. The 29th Annual 2013 International Conference of the Association for Manufacturing Excellence (AME) takes place October 21-25 at the Sheraton Centre in Toronto. AME keeps its members informed of the latest developments in management and operational techniques — such as LEAN. These tools are vital to the manufacturing sector’s continued success. "Manufacturing, especially advanced manufacturing and food processing, remains a key target for our investment attraction efforts," said Mark Boileau, Manager of Cornwall Economic Development. "The success of SigmaPoint and Busitech speak to the ability of a manufacturer to successfully compete on a global stage from a Cornwall location.” MPP JIM MCDONELL BILL 61 FAILS TO PASS - By a vote of 46 to 27, Members of Provincial Parliament denied a second reading of MPP Jim McDonell’s Bill 61, the Technical Standards and Safety Amendment Act, 2013. “I am disappointed because throughout the lengthy work on this Bill, I endeavored to balance stakeholders’ concerns with the need for an independent, strong body of experts in the fields of technology and safety regulation,” – said MPP Jim McDonell. The Act submitted by McDonell was advocating for reforms in areas such as arbitration, labour relations, insurance, taxation and pension.

SDSG LIBERALS PAY TRIBUTE TO LOCAL HISTORY November 11th 2013 will mark the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Crysler’s Farm and the Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry Federal Liberal Association will pay tribute to this important date in history when it holds its annual Maple Leaf Dinner on Thursday, November 14, at the Best Western Parkway Inn, 1515 Vincent Massey Drive, in Cornwall. “It was one of the key battles fought in the War of 1812-14 and also a battle where English, French and First Nations fought side by side as allies to hand the invading American forces a decisive defeat,” explained Mr. Jones. The guest speaker for the Maple Leaf Dinner will be the Hon. Peter Milliken, the former Speaker of the House of Commons and former Member of Parliament for Kingston and the Islands. Ticket information and reservations for the Maple Leaf Dinner can be obtained from Del Jones at 613 543 3588, or Denis Sabourin at 613 935 5674.

from his lone career defeat, dominating durable Maurycy Gojko over six one-sided frames. Returning to New York State for the first time since his January 25 war with Jose Hernandez on ESPN, Luis believes a victory on November 9 will be another step in the right direction. “I can’t wait to get back in the ring and explode,” said the likable Luis, who also works a fulltime job assisting handicapped children and adults. “I’m 100% physically and mentally. Most importantly, I’ve spent time in the gym making improvements and I know that a victory moves me closer to another significant fight.” For tickets or more information, go to Whitehallathleticclub.com or call 518-832-3662.

CORNWALL INTERFAITH PARTNERSHIP EVENT CELEBRATES DIVERSITY AND PEACE The Cornwall Interfaith Partnership will host a lunch and discussions on the International Day of Peace. The event takes place Sunday November 24th at the Knox St. Paul's United Church. This is an opportunity to gather for lunch and learn from each other about what we need to do to cultivate mutual respect in our diverse community. "Please join us for good food, including halal, kosher and vegetarian options, suitable to all cultural traditions, good discussion and fellowship. There would be no charge – just a food donation for Agape", says Barbara Helms, Chair of the Cornwall Interfaith Partnership.

Langen Brothers see Jr. A action Lightweight boxer Jesse and Justin Langen who are both in Grade 12 are second year students at the Ontario Hockey Academy in Cornwall Ontario. Both brothers play for the Boys Gold Team, and both have seen Jr. A action this season. Jesse has suited up for the Brockville Braves, while Justin has attended practices for the Smiths Falls Bears. “I think it is a great introduction to Junior A hockey, being in such a fast and high calibre league, it pushes me to bring that intensity and energy into my own game on a more consistent bases”, says Jesse Langen.

GET VACCINATED Protect Yourself From Tetanus, Diphtheria and Pertussis, get vaccinated. The Eastern Ontario Health Unit (EOHU) is reminding residents about the importance of updating their immunizations. The EOHU is now offering the Tdap vaccine, a three-in-one booster that protects against tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (whooping cough). Pertussis is a serious disease that has been on the rise in recent years among teenagers and adults—who can then spread it to infants and younger children. The Tdap vaccine can protect today’s teens and adults whose childhood immunization may have worn off. Getting the vaccine can also indirectly help protect newborns and children too young to be vaccinated.

Arts & Culture LIVE MUSIC AT THE PORT - The Port Theatre is hosting two great shows in the coming weeks. On Saturday, October 19th, fans can enjoy Triple Threat, a show featuring Nickelback, Aerosmith and Led Zeppelin tribute acts. That will be followed by Shock Treatment on Saturday, October 26th, featuring tributes to Ozzy and Black Sabbath. Tickets for both shows are available at Melody Music, the Cornwall Square Lottery Kiosk and the Port Theatre Box Office (1 pm - 4 pm).

Sports & Lifestyle TONY “LIGHTING” LUIS BACK IN ACTION NOVEMBER 9 Lightweight boxer Tony “Lightning” Luis of Cornwall, Ontario, Canada makes his highly anticipated return to the ring Saturday, November 9 when he battles an opponent to be named at the Whitehall Athletic Club in Whitehall, NY. A former WBC Continental Americas Junior Welterweight champion, the all-action Luis holds an excellent 16-1 record with 7 victories coming by way of knockout. On May 17, Luis showed no ill-effects

KINGS READY FOR REGULAR SEASON -The team of Steve Simoes (head coach), Al Wagar (general manager) and Wayne Veary (assistant GM) have put together an impressive roster in a short amount of time. In fact, six more players have come to terms with the River Kings: Pat Kavanagh, Alexandre Moisan, Dominic Chiasson, Steve McJannett, Olivier Filion and Samuel Drouin. Kavanagh brings plenty of experience to the organization. The Ottawa native was a secondround draft pick of the Philadelphia Flyers in 1997. The 34-year-old has spent the last seven seasons overseas. Kavanagh played in 14 NHL games with Vancouver and Philadelphia. He has also had pro stops in the AHL and IHL. Last season in Italy, he had 14 goals and 23 assists in 41 games for Val Pusteria HC.

Letters & Opinions MARK A MACDONALD DISAPPOINTED ABOUT COUNCIL DECISION - Mark A MacDonald of the Concerned Citizens Coalition writes: I am extremely disappointed that Council will not even consider the idea of a referendum regarding the future use of the General Hospital. There has not been one public meeting about this issue and this sale is being rammed through. Recently the head of the local social housing, unveiled the agenda for the coming years, showing Cornwall residents saying that affordable housing "comes above anything else". This was our last hope and without the support of Council, we're finished. Seniors and those in need of affordable, accessible housing are the real losers. The number of people over the age of 75 years old is going to double in the coming years and this Council is lacking real vision by letting this opportunity pass.

Celebrating 75 Years!

Counselling and Support Services of S.D. & G., formerly known as Family Counselling Centre of Cornwall and United Counties, is celebrating 75 years of service to the community this year. Since 1938, the agency has been dedicated to meeting the social and personal needs of the community by providing services that assist people to develop to the full extent of their potential. “Our mission is to empower individuals towards a better well-being… we’ve been doing just that for over 75 years. This milestone marks a great achievement for us! This year, we are celebrating the past and shaping the future” says Raymond Houde, the Executive Director of Counselling and Support Services of SD&G, who has been with the Agency for more than 36 years. Counselling and Support Services of S.D. & G. is a multi-service, non-profit, accredited organization that provides services to children, youth, adults and families in the city of Cornwall and the counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry. Services include individual, couple and family counselling, Employee Assistant Programs, early intervention and educational programs related to domestic violence, and specialized community-based support services for individuals with intellectual disabilities. To commemorate this special milestone, the agency is inviting the public to attend their open house on Friday, November 8th, 2013 from 1-4pm at their office (26 Montreal Road in Cornwall). They will also be hosting a celebration dinner at the Cornwall Golf and Country Club. Tickets are available for purchase ($40 each) by October 30th 2013. Please call Jessica at 613-932-4610 ext. 126 for more information.

Break the Silence, Use Your Voice! Let’s Unite Against Child Abuse!

As we are getting ready for Cornwall and SDG’s Community Dress Purple Day on Friday, October 18th, we must not lose sight of the purpose for which we are uniting in large purple numbers. October is Child Abuse Prevention month where we call on our community to protect our kids and youth from abuse and neglect. Education is a huge component of being able to do just this and early intervention is key. It is for this reason that the Children's Aid Society of SDG has partnered up with the Cornwall Community Police Service and the schools boards affecting the schools in the SDG area to roll out a child friendly presentation on child abuse and how to keep safe. It helps define the different types of abuse, and touches on issues like secret keeping, who to tell, what to do if someone won’t listen and other child sensitive issues around abuse/neglect. The Cornwall Community police will deliver this presentation to all Cornwall schools focusing on grades from 3 – 6.

In addition to this, Kimly Thivierge, Public Relations manager at the Children's Aid Society of SDG, has been very busy throughout the month (and year) delivering presentations on Duty to Report to the community’s professionals to ensure young and old are being educated on Child Abuse Prevention. “This is a community service that the agency offers to professional groups in SDG in order to keep awareness levels current” says Ms. Thivierge. “There has been a great response from the community. Now groups are calling us and requesting the presentation for their staff” says Ms. Thivierge. According to Thivierge, this is a big change from a few years ago when this type of service was rarely requested.

Education is ongoing. Knowledge is the first weapon against child abuse. If you know what you are looking for, you will feel more confident in reporting. But remember, if you are ever in doubt, call the Children's Aid Society of SDG and let the professionals decide what needs to be done. As such, we would like to leave the public with some information on Child Abuse and how they can help keep a child safe:

What is abuse and neglect? Abuse is against the law and occurs when a child is hurt intentionally, or when a parent or caregiver fails to protect a child in their care. Physical abuse and sexual abuse are clear examples of maltreatment, but so too is neglect – the failure to meet a child’s basic needs for food, clothing, shelter, sleep, medical attention, education and protection from harm. Children can also be emotionally abused when their parent or caregiver attacks their emotional development and self-worth by constantly criticizing, teasing, bullying, rejecting or ignoring. Learn more, at www.useyourvoice.ca/en/protect/#/what-is-abuse.

THE SEEKER Vol. 4 Issue 40 - October 18 - pg. 6

What is domestic violence? Domestic violence is violent, abusive

behaviour, which occurs within a child’s home environment and includes, but is not limited to partner violence. Domestic violence can have a profound effect on children and may result in or raise the risk of child abuse or neglect.

What are the signs of abuse and neglect? Unexplained injuries, fear of a

specific adult, difficulty trusting others or making friends, sudden changes in eating or sleeping patterns, poor hygiene, secrecy and inappropriate sexual behaviour may be signs of family problems and could indicate a child is being abused or neglected. Remember you don’t need to be sure that a child is being abused or neglected – let your local Children’s Aid Society know what your concerns are and we will determine if a child is in danger. Learn the signs of abuse by visiting www.useyourvoice.ca/en/protect/#/signsof-abuse.

How to report abuse. If you suspect a

child is being abused or neglected, it’s your legal duty to report the situation to a Children’s Aid Society, even if you’ve already reported it on a previous occasion. For the child’s sake, don’t delay, call the Children’s Aid Society immediately. The phone lines are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. To learn more about your responsibility to report, visit www.cassdg.ca

What we think parents or caregivers need to know How to create a safe community. It is important to teach children their rights. When children are taught they are special and that they have the right to be safe, they are less likely to think abuse is their fault and more likely to report an offender. How to discipline without hurting. Discipline is meant to teach

children how to behave, be safe and get along with others. Physical punishment is detrimental in that it teaches children that hitting is okay and it causes them to be afraid. Physical punishment often occurs because a parent is angry and frustrated. This is particularly dangerous, however, as it is easy to lose control and cause serious injury. To explore positive parenting resources, go to www.oacas.org/ childwelfare/positive.htm.

Help is available. If you need help, ask for it. Nobody is perfect. Call your local Children’s Aid Society for more information about parenting and services. Visit www. www.cassdg.ca for more tips and information.

NATURALLY DELICIOUS ... with the Health Nut

Le Coin Francophone

Une fin de semaine enchantée

My little b u d d y …Spencer was at my shop last week-end….he was there to help me raise $$$ for my chosen charity…. Agape Centre …. He decided to sell some tasty, warm apple cider…..he donated $10 to the charity…. Such a generous heart…thanks Spencer!!,,. He even got an official Health Nut shirt….woohoo!! Thanksgiving week-end was beautiful, everyone smiling, such a great time of the year to be thankful for all that we have. I always like to stop and look at all that I have, not material stuff but true blessings in my life. First, my loving husband Mario and amazing son Alex, they are my everything and I love them with all of my heart. I am also very blessed to have an incredible family and awesome, true friends. I am very fortunate to have a job that I love and lucky enough to be living out my passion at my homemade goods shop as well. Health, love and happiness are high on the list for sure….I could go on for a long time...Always remember that our true blessing do not have a price tag…they are priceless.. I have been very fortunate lately to have opportunities to meet some amazing health documentary health experts in person. Such a thrill to meet the people that have literally helped me maintain my weight loss journey since 2007…they are so intelligent and knowledgeable in their fields and I just can’t express the feeling of actually being next to them and shaking their hands.

Pendant la fin de semaine du 20 au 22 septembre dernier, la petite chorale de Cornwall, le « Choeur en fête » a été l’hôte du 34e festival des chorales francoontariennes. Ce rassemblement de choristes a lieu chaque année dans différentes localités de la province. Cette année, le festival s’inscrivait parmi les activités commémoratives des quatre cents ans de la présence française en Ontario.

Dès le vendredi soir, les centaines de choristes venus d’un peu partout en province, assistent à leur premier atelier donné par des professionnels . Dès lors, les voix s’entremêlent doucement et peu à peu, les airs entonnés prennent vie. Samedi matin, on se remet à la tâche et de clé de sol en clé de fa, les mélodies ne tardent pas à remplir l’Agora. En fin d’après-midi, les festivaliers se rendent à la co-cathédrale de la Nativité pour la messe célébrée par Monseigneur Damphousse. La soirée se termine par un banquet festif à l’Agora, agrémenté par les douces voix des Soeurs Marleau, originaires de Cornwall et maintenant reconnues sur la scène internationale. Le lendemain, les choristes reprennent de plus belle pour une dernière série d’ateliers en vue du récital qui clôturera la fin de semaine. Voilà que dimanche, en début d’après-midi, nos cent choristes unissent leurs voix pour faire vibrer les coeurs des auditeurs et les murs de la co-cathédrale de la Nativité.

Quelle fin de semaine mémorable! Quelle symphonie d’émotions! Les membres du « Choeur en fête » continuent de fredonner les airs appris… Si vous aimez chanter, joignez-vous à nous pour nos rencontres hebdomadaires. Communiquez avec Michèle au 613- 936- 6794.

David “Avocado” Wolfe is such a person, he is one of the leading expert of living clean and raw lifestyles. He has so much to share with everyone at his conference and time is of no importance. He took time with everyone and answered every question that was asked…what an amazing and inspiring man…he has a sparkle of life in his eyes and I so loved being there in his presence…front row I might add…what a thrill of a lifetime for myself and my husband to hear all that he had to share. While in Montreal, we decided to have fun taking pics of the amazing architecture in Old Montreal, so many original spots. Life goes by so quickly, it is important to spend quality time together…we never know what tomorrow will bring so let’s all appreciate today and all of the beauty that it has to offer… Tonight, I will be co-hosting with my good friend Lisa Blanchard our “introduction to juicing” seminar”. It promises to be a full house, can’t wait…great health related events going on at my shop for sure…I love it!!

“ABOUT THE HOUSE” with Joe Adams

Dear Joe, Recently I dropped a glass on the back of my toilet and broke the lid. Do you know of a place where I could by a new lid for it? I don’t really want to replace the whole thing. Thank you, we love to reading your column, Pat and Jim. Hi Folks, Thank you for reading and for the great question. The short answer is no. There is no place you can just go and buy a replacement lid for a toilet. The reason being lids are made for specific tanks and toilets and tanks are made as cohesive units. The parts are not generally interchangeable between toilets. You can buy tanks separate from bowls, but since styles and models come and go every few years, the chances of being able to even replace a tank/lid are smaller if your fixture is more than five years old. Now if you’ve got a popular model made by a large company like Kohler or Crane, your odds of locating a lid at a reclaimed building materials store or on the side of the street on garbage night are much greater. Failing that, you can get a new toilet for around one hundred dollars, and the new models are much more efficient than the old ones. if you’re on metered water or well water, it will save you some money and offset the cost of the toilet. Best of luck , Joe Dear Joe, With the upcoming cold weather, what should I be doing to save energy this winter? I put plastic on my windows, recaulked all my windows, added weather stripping on my outside doors, and had my furnace cleaned and tuned up. We have an old house and it seems no matter what we do its still draughty and we inevitably end up turning up the heat. Any advice is most welcome. Regards, David.

REEL FISH STORIES By John Earle

Thank you for the great question David. Now is the time we start turning our attention inside to get ready for the cold. Once you’ve done all the stuff you’ve already done, my best advice is to look at the attic. The attic is where you lose the majority of your heat energy. There are two types of old houses: those with unusable attics, and those with attics that are accessible as additional rooms. Unusable attics are easy. You want to insure you have a minimum r50 up there and a well-sealed attic access hatch. Usable attics are a different animal. You will have to make a choice: Do nothing and continue to spend a fortune on lost heat energy, Sacrifice the attic space and install 18 inches of a cost effective blown in insulation or, hire an insulation contractor to retrofit the roof with r50 in a urethane spray foam. Whichever you choose it will be money well spent. You will typically recoup your investment within two or three years. Another thing you might need to consider is if you have a fireplace(s) in your vintage home, if you don’t use them, then you’ll have to create a thermal break between the inside of your house and the chimney which is simply a corridor to the outdoors funnelling cold air into the house. You can do this by installing a plug within the chimney that is semi-permanent or a removable insulated fireplace screen that is removable if you regularly use the fireplace. Either way the goal is to eliminate two things. Draughts, and heat loss; the chimney is both: you lose heat up the chimney and in turn in allow cold air to fall down into the house. My rule is this: Tackle heat loss first. Heat loss propagates draughts but draughts do not cause heat loss to any appreciable extent. If you try to fight draughts alone without dealing with the heat loss, the massive loss of heat will always create more draughts than you can ever hope to seal. Happy winterizing, all the best, Joe

What a Star Wars Filled Weekend! Got the opportunity to visit the Star Wars Identities exhibit at the Aviation Museum in Ottawa twice this weekend and it was truly amazing. Great collection of props, costumes, images and clips from the first 6 films. I was very pleased, as I had the chance to check out a Jawa blaster and I am in the process of making one for my son for his Jawa costume.

I am super excited to see the LEGO movie that comes out in 2014, and of course has an all-star cast voicing the characters, like Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Liam Neeson, Morgan Freeman, Elizabeth Banks and more. As for movies that are for people over the age of 14, I am very much looking forward to the Aultsville Film Series next movie “The Hunt”. It’s on Wednesday October 23rd at 7:30 and will be sold out! So go and get tickets early and get their early for a good seat. Well I have to stop writing now and get back to re-watching the Star Wars movies. Until next time flimsies keep your popcorn buttered and your root beer icy!

I also got the chance to see “Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs 2” recently in the theater. One of the great things about having kids is I can now go see cartoons in the theater and I don’t get strange looks from parents of other kids wondering where mine are. This is another case of a great sequel that picks up right where the last film left off. We find out what happens to inhabitants of Swallow Falls, and are reconnected with our hero Flint Lockwood (Bill Hader), his new friend weather-girl Sam Sparks (Anna Faris). This time Flint is realizing his dream of becoming a great inventor and meeting his lifetime idol Chester V (Will Forte). Flint is headed back to the small island to find and shut down his food creation machine, the FLDSMDFR, which is now creating foodimals like tacodiles, bacon cheese spiders, and shrimpanzees. Our hero has to go on both an internal and external journey and find his place and save his friends and new friends from the diabolical wrath of the EVIL Corporation and its leader. This movie has some great friend moments and some awesome father and son bits as well. My kids loved it and ironically we were all hungry at the end of the film.

Here's a tip for you: If you double this recipe, you will get 3 pecan pies instead of only 2. The baked pie freezes beautifully for another meal.

OUR FAVOURITE PECAN PIE

FRESH RASPBERRY PIE WITH A CRUMBLE TOPPING

INGREDIENTS: one 9" pie shell, unbaked

FOR THE FILLING: 4 cups of fresh raspberries 3/4 cup to 1 cup of white sugar (depending on the tartness of the raspberries, taste to decide) 3 heaping tbsp. cornstarch

FOR THE CRUMBLE TOPPING: 1/2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour 1/2 cup dark brown sugar 1/4 cup butter

METHOD: -In a bowl, combine the raspberries, sugar and cornstarch. Mix well and pour this into your prepared, unbaked 9" pie shell.

Montreal’s Real Mrs Claus has moved to Cornwall If you have a charitable event or a Christmas party for children, I will gladly attend voluntarily, bringing extra joy to the children and adults alike.

If you are a business there is a fee. This very glamourous Mrs. Claus has been considered the Real Thing!

To book her for your event, please call 613-935-4592

METHOD: -Set your oven to 350 degrees F. -In a bowl, whisk the eggs. Then add the sugar and corn syrup. -Sprinkle the pecans to evenly cover the pastry shell. -Carefully pour the egg and corn syrup mixture over the pecans. Press any pecan down into the filling to cover it. -Bake the pie for 50 to 55 minutes on the lowest rack in your oven. -To test for doneness: insert a cake tester into the centre of the filling, if it comes out clean, the pie is done. -Allow your pie to cool to room temperature and serve with a dollop of whipped cream. YUM!

THIS WEEKEND

FROM MY P ANTRY

degrees F. for 40 to 50 minutes. -Allow the pie to cool before cutting and serving. YUM!

9 pie shells. That was perfect to hold the different fillings. If you wish, you can freeze any of these baked pies for future use. I want to wish our eldest daughter Karen a very Happy Birthday which she is celebrating to-day. Boy! How time flies! It seems she was just a tiny newborn baby held lovingly in our arms. Your Dad and I wish you only the very best, always, with our love!

Miscellaneous

• Use the space under the bed to store seasonal clothing in clear plastic bins, unless you have a specific place in your home for them.

Keep the shoes and sneakers currently being worn in a shoe rack for easy access.

Instruct your teen to part with items they no longer use.

Store hair supplies, blow dryers, nail care items (emery boards, polishes, clippers, etc), and other grooming accessories in labeled baskets kept up on shelves. Label everything, from bookshelves to entertainment units, including shelves for CD and DVD storage.

Closet • • • • • • •

Start by emptying the closet. Fold seasonal clothes and put them in clear plastic bins with lids. Store the bins on the top of the closet shelf, or under the bed (save your back and get the roll-out kind), unless you have a specific room in your home to store seasonal clothing. Label each bin (Winter Clothes, Summer, Skiing, etc.). If the bed isn't far enough off the floor for the low-rise wheeled storage bins to fit, get some bed risers for up to eight inches of extra bed height. Don't store the clothes worn during one season with clothes from a different season. Rotate clothes in and out of storage. When removing clothes from storage, hang them back up in the closet right away, gathering similar items together (i.e. shirts, skirts, pants, dresses, etc.). Have a place for shoes. You can put a shoe rack on the floor, or hang one over the closet door.

Strategies For Dealing With The Clutter On The Floor It seems inevitable that with a typical teenager’s attention span and busy life, stuff piles up on the floor. They get distracted fairly easily, and whatever they were using is typically dropped wherever they were the instant it was no longer needed. It accumulates quickly, and the mound will grow to overwhelming proportions (to a teenager) in the blink of an eye. What can you do to get it clean and avoid conflict?

If your teen will let you, offer to help. Start by picking up only the clothes, the current season first, and hang them in the closet. Sort out the dirty clothes into the hamper as you pick them up. Fold the off-season clothes and store them in bins on top of the closet shelf or under the bed. Empty all the drawers in the room onto the bed. Assign each drawer a different item category, for example: ‘Sportswear’, ‘Underwear’, ‘T-shirts’, ‘Shorts’, ‘Pants’, and ‘Pajamas’. Double up drawer space using interlocking plastic containers or dividers, keeping everything neat and in its intended space. Keep a hamper in the closet, or in the room if the closet’s too small, either one that hangs or one that sits on the floor. Put any sports equipment to be kept in the room in a basket. If these items are not used often, check if there is room on the closet shelf, or in a roll-out bin under the bed. If you do not have a linen closet in your home, store the bed sheets in a container under the bed. Fold the top and bottom sheet, and put them in the matching pillow case to keep them nicely folded and all together.

Organizing A Bedroom - All Ages

Girls’ Weekend Fall is a great time to get together with some of your best friends and after much delays, it looks like we will have one. I am still very close to some of my high-school friends and that long-term bond will never sever. We knew each other through the awkward years and have shared the laughter and the tears. We are there for each other, no matter what. Sometimes we are guilty of not reaching out as often as we should, but when one needs the other, we will talk as long as it takes, vent, celebrate the good news and triumphs, and laugh until our face hurts. This weekend we are remedying this; as some of my closest highschool friends are coming to see me. My sister Mel sent me back to Kingston with a bottle of Sangria for our little gathering, and we are currently exploring options of what we can do while she is in town, but the best part will just be seeing each other again.

From a simple message or an outing, these little connections nourish the soul. We complement each other, and dole out advice. We are the sounding board, the voice of reason and the rowdy partners-in-crime. We bring out the best and remind each other that no matter what size, how many wrinkles or grey hairs or what our status is; we are beautiful. Friends can be the mirror to reflect upon. They will give their opinions, support your decisions (even if they don’t agree), be there when the pieces fall apart, when you lose a job or promotion you really want, when a marriage or relationship ends, when a parent is ill, suffer a death of a loved one, and battle illness. Female ties are important, and after a few minutes together we are talking about our kids, our concerns, the latest TV shows, sports, pets, men, work, recipes, clothes, makeup, fitness routines and trying to balance it all. So after a trip back home for Thanksgiving to see family, this weekend is all about my friends. I felt bad that I did not have time to see them while I was in town, but between the travel it isn’t always possible. I arrived home to messages suggesting coffee, or a brief visit, but there just wasnt' enough time. Hopefully we can organize a few more of these weekend gatherings, after all we have busy lives, but staying in touch with the ones you can be silly with, the ones who have been there through thick and thin are priceless. A few of my friends are away and can’t make it this time, but hopefully soon we will do it again. Don’t lose touch with the ones you love, the ones who accept you just as you are and never forget your girls!

Follow Kris Ward’s Blog at: www.kriscrossroads.wordpress.com

Pick up anything left on the floor. Put these things either in drawers designated for those specific items, in the ‘Recycle” basket, in the garbage, or in the ‘Return To Where It Belongs’ basket. If your teen eats in their bedroom, put a container for dirty dishes by the door. When they leave their room, they’ll see the basket of dishes and take them to the kitchen. Take the ‘Return To Where It Belongs’ basket and put the contents away where they belong. Keep the labeled basket in the teen’s bedroom as a catch-all for all the stuff in there that has to go back where it belongs. Let your teen understand that sometimes, when you’re in a hurry, it’s OK that clothes get left on the floor. It happens to the best of us, but, before going to bed, put the clothes back where they belong, no matter what. A good habit to get into is to select, before they go to bed, what they want to wear the next day. This is an excellent time to also put everything back in the closet right away. Checking the weather forecast for the next day might influence your clothing choice, possibly making your life a little more comfortable weather-wise. If clothes are thrown on the floor because the teen really doesn't like them and will never wear them, recycle them; don't let unused stuff clutter up your space.

How well can you play scrabble? Learning to play this game is as easy as counting 1-2-3, but learning to play it well and understanding the tricks and strategies needs time and practice. Scrabblers who attended the Scrabble Clinic during the month of August can attest to that and now that they have joined the regular scrabble sessions, they are well on their way to perfecting their new skills. The Cornwall Scrabble Club started its fourth season on Thursday, Sept. 5th. Many past members were present to welcome newcomers: Marion and Don Clement, Edith Sturgeon, Jen Frampton, and Christine Larin. Everyone is eager to make this another fun and successful year. Already, plans are in the making for an in house Christmas tournament. As in past years, the scrabble sessions take place at 1:30 p.m., on Thursdays, at the Cornwall Public Library. To join the club, please communicate with Club Director, Vivianne Panizzon at 613 931 1792 vpanizzon@cogeco.ca

CONGRATULATIONS to all participants....

A Light at the End of the Tunnel

After 18 months of ongoing changes to the script...it seems that the locally film "The Test of a Man" is finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. The project was Dr. Paul Poirier's brain child and producer Shaun Savard equally saw the value in spreading the awareness of brain cancer as far and as wide as possible through multiple film festivals lined up for the next 18 months. The film has a trailer that can be seen at www.drpaulpoirier.com. By pleasant coincidence, the film's narrator, Jethro Tull's founding member and flautist extraordinaire Ian Anderson is presently on a world tour for a revamped version of his classic 1972 album "thick as a brick" and sold out the Place des Arts venue in Montreal last night. Ian, who resides in GARDEN the UK, and Dr. Paul have now been CENTERS collaborating for over 18 months on this project long distance and Ian was gracious enough to set aside 4 tickets Gift Shop & Restaurant 75 Cornwall Centre Rd. Cornwall, ON harvestgarden@bellnet.ca and backstage passes for Dr. Paul with whom he brought Corus radio personality Kevin Wilson among two other friends. Dr. Paul and Ian initially met last year in New York's broadway and again yesterday morning at Article and Photo by Jason Setnyk Montreal's best rock station, CHOM fm studios, to plug the film's upcoming release. The entire interview can be heard at www.chom.com and by scrolling to Terri Cornwall Dimonte's blog. According to Ontario -Dr. Poirier, "Ian did an Hockey awesome job at narrating the players complicated subject of brain wearing the cancer" and Dr. Paul was so colours grateful for his involvement maroon, gold, in the project that he had his and white will biker vest retrofitted to Ian's be knocking size and presented him with door to door it over the air. canvasing several neighbourhoods on Thursday October 31st.

A weekly look at racing from both sides of the 1000 Islands

Cornwall Colts

With the biggest week of DIRTcar racing now in the books as Super DIRT Week XLII has come and gone, I would like to take a moment and reflect back on a very exciting week of racing that may go down in history as one of the most exciting DIRT Week events that I have been a part of.

Hawkesbury

My Week began at Weedsport Speedway on Tuesday night as the track hosted the first scheduled events to kick off Super DIRT Week. Matt Sheppard claimed victory in the 358 Modified DIRTcar Series race, while Danny Johnson, Jimmy Phelps, Brett Hearn and Mike Mahaney rounded out the top five. The new track ownership team of Al Heinke and Jimmy Phelps did a fantastic job preparing the track, and I look forward to even better things for this place in 2014 after hosting just one event each of the past two seasons.

The Seeker’s Player of the Week

DIRT Week continued on Thursday evening for the $10000 to win Hurricane 100 at Brewerton Speedway. This race was another round of the 358 Modified DIRTcar Series, and it was one of the best races of the entire week. It was a very exciting battle between several top stars including the previous night’s winner Matt Sheppard, Dale Planck and both Alan and Danny Johnson, Mario Clair and Tim McCreadie who fell out of contention late in the race. In the end, it was Danny Johnson taking the win, charging from his 26th place starting spot, with Ward, Sheppard, Britten and Planck rounding out the top five.

Friday night was spent under the lights at the New York State Fairgrounds for qualifying heat races for the Modifieds, 358 Modifieds and Sportsman. Stewart Friesen, Brett Hearn and Larry Wight claimed wins in the Big Block Modified Qualifiers, while Carey Terrance and Mark Johnson won 358 Modified twin 20 qualifiers. For the first time ever, the Sportsman division was part of the Friday night program with Triple 10 qualifiers with Brett Wright, Jeremy Pitts and Mathieu Desjardins taking the wins. We had some great qualifying results from our local drivers with Chris Herbison (Sportsman) and Chris Raabe (358 Modifieds) claiming outside pole awards for their respective divisions during time trials the day before.

The 2013 season will come to an end for me this coming weekend at Brockville Speedway for the 1000 Islands RV DIRTcar Northeast Fall Nationals. The DIRTcar Sportsman Series highlights Friday’s program with the 4cylinder Rookies and Vintage Modifieds also on hand, plus a $500 to win and guaranteed starter bonus for the fastest 358 Modified team that takes time on Friday night. Saturday afternoon is the final 358 Modified DIRTcar Series race of the season as well as an open 360 Sprint Car Challenge. Sunday will be the Big Block Modified Super DIRTcar Series, plus the Go Nuclear Late Models. Race time is 1pm on Saturday and Sunday. For more details visit BrockvilleSpeedway.com. For those of you that are attending the 1000 Islands RV Fall Nationals this weekend, be sure to stop by the Finish Line Web Design Merchandise trailer located behind the main grandstands. ALL merchandise will be on sale priced to sell. We are looking to clear out remaining inventory to make room for 2014.

Sunday was the final day of Super DIRT Week as the Big Block Modifieds participated in the NAPA 200 paying more than $50000 to win. Just one day after running out of gas in the 358 race, Billy Dunn came home the winner as several other drivers came up empty in the fuel mileage game in the late stages of the race. Hats off to the DIRTcar Series officials who implemented a rule change this year that the caution laps don’t count in the final 25 laps, and doing away with the mandated pit stops, leaving it into the hands of the drivers as to when they need to make a pit stop during the race. It really made for an exciting end to the event. Congratulations to Billy and Norm Dunn and the entire Number One Speed race team on their biggest career win. Rob Yetman won the Pro Stock main event earlier in the day, while Dave Bissonnette claimed the Mr. DIRTcar Pro Stock championship.

Hockey News

Saturday afternoon featured the Salute to the Troops 150 for the 358 Modifieds and the 30 lap championship race for the Sportsman division. The 358 Modified race was a heart-breaker for Watertown, New York race Billy Dunn who appeared to have the race won as they took the white flag on lap 149. Just as they entered turn one, the car sputtered as the fuel cell ran dry, opening the door for Brett Hearn to take the win. Fuel mileage caused problems in the last segment of the race, and drivers did everything they could to conserve fuel over the final few laps of the event. Tim Fuller crossed the finish line in second, with Alain Boisvert posting an impressive third place result. Jimmy Horton and Matt Billings rounded out the top five. Billings sure has had some great results at Syracuse, winning the Sportsman race in 2009, and finishing the Syracuse 150 in the top 10 every year since then. The 30 lap Sportsman race ended the day on Saturday, and at the checkered flag it was Brad Rouse taking home the win over Jeremy Pitts, Steve Barber, pole-sitter Brett Wright, and second place starter Chris Herbison. Congratulations to Rouse on the win, and to local racers Barber and Herbison for their great Super DIRT Week finishes.

7 Colts make Team Canada East Camp roster The World Junior A Challenge is set to take action this November and team training camp rosters have been announced. Countries invited to the tournament include Russia, Czech Republic, Switzerland and of course, the United States. Canada has two entries into the tournament: Team Canada East and Team Canada West. Out of the 65 invitees from each eastern Junior A league, 20 are from the Central Canada Hockey League (CCHL) and 7 of those are from the Cornwall Colts. Of course, you can say it’s a bit biased to do Cornwall’s Head Coach Ian MacInnis was selected to man the bench for Team Canada East for the tournament. However, each one of the 7 Colts invited have rightfully earned their spot with their hard work through out the first part of the CCHL season. Red hot goaltender Jordan Piccolino has played 12 games with Cornwall so far and boasts a 1.96 goals against average. That’s good enough to throw him in second in the league, just behind Carleton Place’s Cory Simic who was not even offered an invite to the team. The Pierrefonds, Quebec native is in his second year with the Colts and already lead them to a championship in his first year. Not a bad selection to have between the pipes for Team Canada East. On defence, Callum Hofford and Matthew Cruickshank were selected as invitees. The possibly college bound Cruickshank has played in 16 games for Cornwall this season and is deadly on the point. He won’t be taken lightly either as he’s wracked up 15 penalty minutes. Forwards is where you need your strength and Team Canada East has invited Lawson MacDonald, Chase Pearson, Marley Quince and Tanner Spink. Quince and Spink need no introduction to Cornwall fans as they both lead the team in points with 18 and 13 respectively. Not to be outdone, Pearson is right up there with 10 from his side of the ice. Quince and Spink could be deadly when stuck between the right wingers, Pearson included. Hopefully we’ll see what the rest of leagues offer up for Team Canada East. The tournament gets underway November 4th when Team Canada East takes on Team Russia.

The Seeker Chicks, Julia and Mai-Liis are happy to introduce to you, Shannon Ferguson, our new contributor. We welcome Shannon to the Seeker Team and hope that you, our readers, will enjoy reading her column.

Standards Are Sexy Standards. We all like to think we have high ones. We like to believe we are strong women with good heads on our shoulders who have standards much taller than our sparkly stilettos. Maybe you’re an unwavering woman who cannot be shook, but it’s more than likely your standards are as shaky as your ankles after a bottle of wine, three beers, and five tequila shots. In general, most of us have pretty decent standards when it comes to men. You know what you want, and what you look for. You know how you want to be treated and how you want to feel. Maybe not everyone wants the fairy tale but it’s safe to say we all want a man who respects us and treats us with the kindness we deserve. So, why is it that you’re never attracted to the guys who DO treat you nicely and give you the respect you need? I bet, right now, you can count on both hands the number of men you have turned down or broke up with who were nothing but kind to you. Men who would have held the world in one hand for you while holding the door open with the other. These guys meet your standards in every way but you just don’t feel the “spark” so you’re forced to end it or pretend it, and neither makes you feel good. These are the guys who see the real you. Since you’re not pretending or putting on an act because you’re not that attracted to them, you don’t hide your standards. You don’t feel intimidated so you don’t back down. Maybe you’re even a little mean to them or you find it super easy to joke around together. These are the guys who see the brilliant standards radiating from you and know that they must be met. They see the real you and know that you’re a true catch.

There’s an odd thing that happens to most women when they meet a guy they really like. She’ll start acting the way she thinks he wants her to act. She’ll shelf her true personality and break out the “tricks” she has read about all over the internet and in books since she was 13. Do this, do that, touch his arm softly, throw your head back and giggle, play with your hair, purse your lips, agree with what he says. NO! Don’t do it! The minute you start trying to make this guy like you is the minute you throw a huge sign on your forehead that says “NO STANDARDS”. Guys aren’t stupid. They know what they can get away with and when you show him that sign on your forehead, how do you expect him to respect you?

www.spinecareplus.ca 613-938-1000

Point blank. If you ACT like you have no standards, he’s going to treat you like you have no standards. Guys don’t want a girl who is readily available and who is genuinely fake. Maybe he’ll keep you around cause the sex is good, but from the beginning you have ultimately told him he can disrespect you all he wants and that’s fine by you. So, next time you find yourself really falling for a super sexy, awesome guy don’t treat him like he’s made of gold. Treat him the way you treat the people closest to you. Remember that he too probably has a goofy or nerdy side. So don’t pretend you truly want to see the new Bruce Willis movie, if it’s Harry Potter that really gets you going. When you start being yourself and treating him the way you treat the “other” guys, he too will see your standards and he’ll know you’re not just screwing around. It’s not hard to get any guy you want. Confidence is hotter than big boobs and having standards is sexier than a million dollar smile. How else do you think an otherwise mediocre girl can end up with the hottest guy? It’s because she’s not mediocre at all. She has standards and that makes her sexy as hell. She knows she’s worth it and you should know you’re worth it too. Keep your standards to the sky, The Love Hawk Shannon loves love. She has a passion for people and understanding the little things that make everyone unique and similar, all at the same time. She has degrees in Communication Studies, Psychology, and Broadcast Journalism but it’s the school of life that taught Shannon most of what she knows about love and relationships.

Positively Marlene by Marlene Baker

Hi to everyone sitting down and looking for ~Passion For Fashion~ this week. As I have gone through a BIG change this season, so has this very column. It will be known as ~Positively Marlene~ from this week on. I will continue talking about my fashion tips and ideas, as well as all of the many "Positive things" that I encounter on my weekly sojourns in and around Cornwall and in my life. We have been experiencing some beautiful Fall weather these past few weeks. I hope you are getting out to enjoy the many rainbowic colours of this season. I certainly have been enjoying this time of year. It does a body good, to breathe in the fresh air, to exercise and to see all kinds of things changing from their summer wear into colourful suits, before the long Winter days of boring white. I had the most amazing time two Saturdays ago, at the ~Best Western~ with John and many other wonderful people from our community. I had luckily won a pair of tickets that were worth $170 to ~All That Jazz~.

A fund- raiser that was put on for the Agape Center. It was certainly an evening to remember. I had yet another chance to "Dress up!" The room was beautifully decorated with twinkling lights. There were delicious smells as you entered the room, of all kinds of foods cooking in the air. Mmmmmm we were ready to have ourselves a feast. John and I were greeted by the lovely hostess and director of the Agape Center, Alyssa Blaise. Who was dressed elegantly by the way. She then passed us onto another lovely Lady, who informed us where and what the different food areas were, and where the wine and martinis were situated in the room. John and I live so close to the ~Best Western~ that we decided to walk over. That way we could sip on the alcoholic beverages being served and be able to safely walk home afterwards. The night had just began as we had arrived "fashionably late". A live jazz band from Ottawa, ~Angel and The Devils~ were our entertainment for the whole evening. Angel sounded like a angel and sang beautifully for us. The other band members played stupendously throughout the evening. John and I and the many others sipped, ate and danced. The night was a HUGE SUCCESS, thanks to the many Sponsors and Volunteers that made this lovely fund-raising evening happen. TIP OF THE WEEK: Make sure you apply some sun screen on your face, back of your hands and lips at this time of year. The sun may not be as ~hot~, but you must protect these areas from the harmful UV Rays. For all of your Fall weather wants and needs make sure to drop in and see the huge collection of Fall items at the many thrift stores here in Cornwall. The Agape Center, the Salvation Army and Value Village. By helping yourselves keep warm and look fashionable you are helping others that are less fortunate than yourselves in return. Until next week...Ride the ~Wave of Life~... Begin to live in each moment...move fluidly, steadily, calmly and gratefully... Marlene Baker of www.fashionography.ca
