SHOW AND SHINE BLASTS OFF The first annual Kemptville Fathers’ Day Show and Shine event at Riverside Park was a hit with everyone. There were more than 400 cars at the event on Sunday, June 20, from Model T’s to the latest in drag racing design. The show is a fundraiser for the Kemptville Youth Centre and is put on by the Highway 43 Car Club. Visitors at the show were treated to a special event called a burnout. The object of the burnout is create as much smoke from the rears wheels of a car as possible. Wheel chocks are placed up against the front wheels of the car and the driver has to race the engine enough to get the tires spinning on a metal plate. The resulting friction on the tires causes the rubber to melt and smoke. Sunday’s winner was Bruce Evans, followed by Dan Dillabough in second place and Garry Tracey in third. See story on page 9.

Roweena Cooper and other members of the Heritage Advisory Committee were delighted on Monday to find out the old fire hall at 25 Reuben Crescent could be architecturally and historically significant. “We’re very happy about that. You’ve made me happy,” she laughed at the meeting. The building’s roof shape, brick siding, brick work along eves, windows and upper-storey windows would be designated historically significant. The garage doors, roofing, entrance doors and interior of building would not be designated. The news comes a week after council decided to sell heritage sites in North Grenville – including the Acton’s Corners building which was a turn-of-the-century schoolhouse. The heritage sites that will be sold include:

Music is growing at Kemptville Public School and Holy Cross Elementary thanks to Kemptville resident Tim Anderson and business owner Bob Besharah. The men recently donated two percussion sets to each school to help expand music programs. “There’s so little funding for music programs, we want to do whatever we can locally,” said Anderson, who is the Ontario product specialist and sales rep for Direct Music Supply based out of Niagara Falls, New York. Tim approached Besharah, who owns ClassAxe music in Kemptville, to help with the donations. “I wanted to do the donation through Bob to show my support for local business as well,” said Anderson. “Bob has an unbelievable music store and a great attitude.” Besharah, who loved the idea, committed to donating a set of drums to Holy Cross while Anderson had already approached the Kemptville Public School’s music program in September. The drums are from the Canadian company Remo, which recently came out with “Not So Loud” or NSL drums. An Apex Djembe percussion set was also donated, which are skincovered drums that can be played using only the hands. The drums are designed to be much quieter than a regular hand drum, which is perfect for an elementary school setting, said Anderson. Holy Cross and Kemptville Public School are the first schools to be receiving these types of drums. Catherine Empey, vice-principal at Holy Cross, said the school is honoured to receive the percussion sets. “It will certainly enhance the music opportunities for children at school and be wonderful for our drama club, as well as the music lessons provided in the classrooms,” she said. The junior kindergarten class at Kemptville Public School has already used their drum sets at a recent music night. “It’s incredibly fulfilling to see young children enjoying making music,” said Anderson. “I wanted to do whatever I could to help promote music and especially rhythm in my little corner of the world,” He added that he hopes to have these drum sets in school across Ontario in the coming years. “For me, it’s about promoting music with kids and hopefully creating musicians,” he said.

New youth centre doesn’t mean more crime

Animalfest in Kemptville

The Kemptville Youth Centre has found its new home in many residents’ backyards at 5 Oxford Street West. And needless to say, it’s causing a stir among some residents. “They’ll vandalize my property,” says one neighbour. “They’ll keep me up at night,” says another. But as the North Grenville council recently pointed out, there have been no complaints about youth coming from the present Prescott Street location. For some reason though, neighbours on Oxford Street seem to think that will all change when they move to their new youth centre – where they will have more room to interact and more space for a variety of activities. With all this space and room to grow, the move to the new location will give youth less opportunity to engage in illegal or downright annoying activities. The already-low rate of criminal activity at the youth centre would plummet even lower. What’s also hard to grasp is those who are fighting the youth centre’s new location aren’t against more green space. Green space also opens a door to illicit activities at night such as drugs, sex and more vandalism. But nobody thinks of this when they fight for more parks and green space in the area. Even those few in Kemptville who are open to big stores and malls such as the upcoming Colonnade shopping centre are forgetting the fact that there might be more shoplifting offences happening in the area. It sounds ridiculous, but so does thinking that the new youth centre location will soon be a haven of vandalism, noise and crime when it will be bigger and better than what it is now. There will always be those in life who give others a bad name. The handful of youth who commit crimes don’t reflect all young people, so there’s no reason these young people who want to use the youth centre should be punished or given a bad name.

The 6th Annual AnimalFest was held in Kemptville on July 19 and 20, with more than $6,000 being raised to help shelter and rehabilitate animals and find caring, forever homes for them. Big Sky Ranch Animal Sanctuary would like to thank all those who contributed to the success of this fundraiser. Volunteers play a crucial role in looking afer the event. A special thank you goes out to all our volunteers and generous benefactors who donate to Big Sky Ranch: whether the value is monetary or measured in endless hours working behind the scenes, let us never forget it is all done to help abused, unwanted and adoptable animals.

Selling off heritage hurts community The North Grenville Chamber of Commerce is very disappointed in the recent decision of council to put North Grenville Heritage Buildings up for sale. The Chamber had submitted a last minute request prior to the decision made at the recent Council Meeting, asking Council to allow the Chamber to prepare a proposal over the summer that would have addressed a positive use of the School House on #43. The proposal would have demonstrated the opportunity for the initiative to either run revenue neutral (therefore not costing the municipality any funds) and/or in fact make revenue over a short time. Any taxpayer in a community understands they have to pay taxes; they only ask that their tax dollars are used in a manner that they can ‘see’ and keeping the culture and heritage of our community intact, if at all possible, is what makes up the fabric of our community; enriching the lives of the residents who live here and the visitors who come to ‘experience’ North Grenville. It was

the understanding of the Chamber from the information presented at council that the cost to maintain the building was minimal when compared to the overall budget of the Municipality and as noted, it would have been the sole intention of the chamber to ensure those costs would be covered by the program and as the program was developed over a short time, (perhaps the next 2 to 3 years) to make revenue. The chamber would not be in a position to ‘purchase’ the building as the chamber; being a non profit organization, wouldn’t have such funds to proceed in that manner, however, being the tourism body of North Grenville, certainly could develop the property to enhance its usage and provide that ‘enrichment’ to many who would certainly want to learn more about the history of the community they live in or about our community, the one they chose to come to visit. The building is not sold as yet, and we would ask council to reconsider their decision and allow the Vice-President & Regional Publisher Chris McWebb Regional General Manager John Willems

chamber time to prepare and present a proposal that would provide an appropriate us of the school house and its history. The existing library downtown, the Old Fire Hall and library in Oxford Mills are other examples of the ‘story of our community’ that will be lost, if sold. The chamber is not in a position, at this time, to create programs for them all, however, would very much want to work with groups who would like to find programs that would preserve their history. Consider them becoming ‘living history’ programs. This would give visitors (and our residents) lots to see and do in North Grenville! Once they are gone, they are gone forever. We don’t know what we miss, until it’s gone!

Ralph Raina honoured C. BILLINGTON Special to the Advance

Doe tags cut back KRISTY WALLACE

Deer hunters in the area must have their doe tag applications in by June 30 for the 2010 deer hunting season since the Ministry of Natural Resources has cut back on the number of doe tags this year. “I’ve received plenty of feedback from hunters concerned about low deer numbers,” said Scott Smithers, a biologist for the Ministry of Natural Resources. In early May, Smithers met with the recently formed Eastern Ontario Deer Advisory Committee to present data, share initial recommendations and receive feedback. The committee is made up of hunters, farmers, former politicians, retailers, wildlife control agents, hunter safety instructors, conservation authority staff, stewardship councilors and members with ties to the naturalist community who encourage the responsible management of deer in Eastern Ontario. Smith added that deer is a valuable natural resource and estimates that more than $40 million in revenue is generated by deer each year in eastern Ontario. For more information, contact Kerry Coleman at 613-258-7515 or Larry Smith at 613-989-2943.


Father’s Day in Kemptville was different this year as the first annual Kemptville Father’s Day Show and Shine took place at Riverside Park. The event raised $7,500 for the Kemptville Youth Centre building fund. Created by the Highway 43 Car Club, the day-long show featured cars and their owners from all across this part of Ontario. There were cars from as far away as Hawkesbury and Odessa. Rod Rafter is the president and founder of the popular club. “Everything went as planned,” he said. More than 400 cars were in the park along with vendors sell-

ing automobile equipment and parts. One very special feature of the car show was the burn out competition. “We are the first ones to do that here,” said Rafter. “The response was fantastic,” he added. The afternoon went by without a hitch for the hundreds of visitors who came out to enjoy it. “We have been working on the show for months,” stated Rafter. The Highway 43 Car Club has only been operating for the past three years, yet it has grown from 30 members to 150 in a short time. Getting the Father’s Day Show and Shine event up and running was not easy as scores of volunteers worked to make the afternoon happen.

Kemptville Advance - JUNE 24, 2010


The long wait for care Ontario’s long-term care system is paralyzed, and failing its most vulnerable residents. More than 600 government funded homes are supposed to provide high quality, round-the-clock care to the frail elderly. But Metroland’s special report shows seniors stuck on record wait lists, entangled in bureaucracy and subject to pressure tactics that jeopardize their rights. FIRST IN A FOUR PART SERIES

What the terms mean ALTERNATE LEVEL OF CARE (ALC): The designation for patients occupying hospital beds who no longer need acute care. About 60 per cent of Ontario ALC patients are waiting for a nursing-home bed.

LONG-TERM CARE HOMES: Also called nursing homes, they offer more care and support than retirement homes or supportive housing. Licensed and funded by the province. Residents are responsible for monthly copayments.

By Mike Adler, Jillian Follert and Rob O’Flanagan


very day Mimi Michel scans the newspaper classified section looking for death notices of people with Alzheimer’s at Ottawa’s long term care homes. “I’ve become an obit vulture,” said the Ottawa woman. “I check and see if someone has died from a preferred place and if the donation was to the Alzheimer’s Society.” Every death means her husband, Alain, moves up another rung on a list of people waiting for a bed at an Ottawa-area nursing home. And it’s a long list, said Mimi. Her 68-year-old husband has been waiting for a bed for over a year now, ever since he was assessed by a case manager from the Champlain Community Care Access Centre, which is responsible for placing people needing long-term care in eastern Ontario. “They always say at least two years (wait),” said Mimi. Alain is number 38. But he hasn’t moved up the list since April, said Mimi. He is one of 25,000 in Ontario waiting to break through near zero vacancy rates at nursing homes, with some facing a wait of more than 200 days. Until a long-term care bed becomes available, Alain will stay at a local retirement home, at a cost of $4,900 per month. Meanwhile, Mimi must provide the required personal care: taking him for walks, helping him with physiotherapy, helping him to brush his teeth and shower. It’s 24-hour care and it’s exhausting, said Mimi, who retired early to care for her husband. Every day she arrives at her husband’s retirement home at around 7:30 a.m. and stays until 5 p.m. or later. “I’m here all day everyday,” said Mimi. Help is expensive. A personal care worker, someone to just sit with Alain, charges more than $25.95 per hour; a registered nurse charges at least $52 an hour, said Mimi. The community care access centre provides eight hours a week of personal care for her husband. “If you don’t have any money you’re screwed,” she said. “Right now I’m digging through my savings and investments and I’m looking at possibly selling my house.” The year-long wait has been exhausting financially, physically and emotionally, said Mimi, adding that she is frustrated with the endless red tape involved in finding a placement. “It’s not only the bureaucracy on the placement side but the bureaucracy on the health side as well,” she said. A growing number of vulnerable Ontar-


LONG STAY NURSING HOME BEDS: Occupied by residents for an indefinite period.

SHORT STAY NURSING HOME BEDS: Occupied for no longer than 90 days a year.

INTERIM BEDS: Temporary beds for patients awaiting long-term care, one of the solutions being tried by the government to get ALC patients out of hospitals. Stays of up to 120 days are allowed, with extensions of up to 60 days.


This feature is an excerpt of the full text. To read the entire report, go to ians are trying with little success to find what they need in a long-term care system that is overwhelmed, unwieldy and tangled in red tape. Health Minister Deb Matthews agrees there are problems, but says it will take time to turn the system around. The province’s $3-billion-a-year network of government-licensed, publicly supported nursing homes is meant to provide highquality care to Ontario’s most fragile and medically needy residents. Situation Critical — a Metroland Special Report — shows a system in paralysis, with only one nursing-home bed in 100 available across Ontario, and with an average wait as high as 200 days in some areas. A $1.1-billion government program, created three years ago to make home support more widely and easily available, was supposed to ease the problem. Instead, wait lists have expanded, leaving more seniors in need of long-term care at home, and thousands more taking up hospital beds with nowhere to go. From 2007 to 2009, the average wait time for a nursing-home bed in Ontario more than doubled, from 49 to 109 days.

The provincewide tally of people waiting is now more than 25,000 and rising, doubled from 12,000 in 2005. The supply of new beds is static, with annual growth of less than 1 per cent. Only 900 more beds are expected to be available in nursing homes over the next 24 months. The average wait for a long term care bed in the Champlain region is 161 days. Only 35 per cent get their first choice of home. For hard-to-place seniors with a need for a higher level of care, waits can be two or more times the average. In rural areas and Northern Ontario, families may be separated by hundreds of kilometres, if there are beds at all. On average, less than 40 per cent of applicants get their first-choice home. Matthews, the health minister, says she is aware “we do have work to do in the access to long-term care homes.” “We know that people are waiting a long time to get into a long-term care home. But, we also know that with the right investments, we can actually keep people at home longer.” Matthews says the ultimate solution is to rely more on care at home, and to make more use of shorter-term “restorative” beds. By February, Ontario had 813 of the interim beds Matthews referred to, in nursing homes, hospitals or hospital-managed sites, and more are planned, the ministry says. In such placements, the elderly are “building their strength up, they’re getting healthier, and are actually, many of them, going home, those who would have otherwise thought they were going into longterm care,” Matthews said. See ‘Bureaucracy’ page 11

Private-pay rental accommodation for those who need minimal to moderate support. Ontario passed legislation this month to regulate this sector for the first time.

LOCAL HEALTH INTEGRATION NETWORKS: The 14 LHINs are regional, nonprofit bodies funded by government to plan, disperse funding and co-ordinate services delivered by hospitals, long-term care homes and other agencies.

COMMUNITY CARE ACCESS CENTRES: The 14 government-funded CCACs are the agencies Ontarians must use to obtain home care, long-term care and other publicly delivered services.

CHRONIC CARE: Also called complex continuing care, it is medically complex and specialized care over extended periods not available at home or in nursing homes.

LONG TERM CARE HOMES ACT: A new law to replace Ontario’s three previous sets of legislation: Nursing Home Act, Homes for the Aged and Rest Homes Act, and Charitable Institutions Act. Among many measures, the new law strengthens enforcement and clarifies how a resident’s care is to be delivered, monitored and reported. The government is giving $30 million in one-time funding to the long-term care sector to help it adjust to changes under the new act.

SOME BEDS TO BE MODERNIZED: Ontario said this spring it will renovate 4,183 existing beds in 37 long-term care homes, part of a plan to redevelop 35,000 older beds over a 10-year period.

Continued from previous page The Metroland investigation also found bureaucracy is such an obstacle that consultants to industry and the U.S. military are being retained to help improve the process of moving people into nursing homes. Some efficiency methods being tried in Ontario are adapted from the assembly lines of the Toyota car company. One study counted 160 distinct steps, including access to nine separate databases, just to move a senior from hospital into a long-term care bed. Done by Orillia consultant Jeff Doleweerd from observations at Quinte Health Care’s Trenton Memorial, that 2008 study - sponsored by the Toronto-based Change Foundation — identified wasteful steps that occur in hospital before patients leave for a nursing home.

the free flow of the elderly into nursing homes. Susan Bisaillon, executive director of clinical operations of Trillium Health Centre in Mississauga, says the Lean exercise with Bercaw helped identify waste. In 2009, Trillium had as many as 131 seniors earmarked for nursing-home care in its wards, and a “consistently gridlocked” emergency room, recalls Bisaillon. Bercaw had staff place coloured sticky notes on a wall to recreate every step in a patient’s journey to either a long-term care bed or home. There were 82, and only 16 added real value for the patient. It was an “ah-ha moment” proving Trillium’s processes needed a major overhaul. “We realized that it was just totally flawed,” Bisaillon says.

One study counted 160 distinct steps, including access to nine separate databases, just to move a senior from hospital into a longterm care bed.

generation will hit 75. By 2036, the number of Ontarians 75 and over will rise to 2.2 million, from 850,000 today. New regulations come into force next month in a modernized piece of longterm-care legislation in the works since 2003. Ministry officials hope the regulations will spur significant change.

Once in a home — despite the system’s ailments — most residents rate the care as satisfactory, according to a 2009 survey by the Ontario Health Quality Council. Getting through the door remains the major challenge. With files from Blair Edwards

THE ‘LEAN’ TECHNIQUE STRETCHED TO THE LIMIT Efficiency consultant Ron Bercaw has adapted a Toyota assembly line technique to help streamline the process of getting Ontario’s elderly out of hospitals and into nursing-home beds. Bercaw first adapted the “Lean” technique to save a failing auto-parts plant he managed in Ohio, and then taught it to 30 Ontario hospitals and CCACs in the last 21/2 years. His tools include streamlining procedures he executed for the defence industry and at the Pentagon. Bercaw’s “kaizen” (“change for the better”) events help health administrators see unnecessary steps that prevent

Metroland also found that those fortunate enough to secure a placement are cared for predominantly by overwhelmed personal support workers for whom a lack of provincial regulation means inconsistent training, lack of accountability and a backbreaking work pace that often removes the opportunity for meaningful personal contact. Nursing home staff in general are stretched to the limit, the result of years of understaffing and a steady influx of older and sicker residents. That trend will continue. In a decade, the first of the baby boom

Senior endures months at Mission before finding his space Wait times for city’s subsidized housing tops seven years or longer JENNIFER MCINTOSH

When he was young Terry Williams never expected to face living his twilight years on the streets of Ottawa. However that’s just what the 66-yearold Newfoundlander was facing last October after a divorce and some financial difficulties left him with few options. An easy-going guy, Williams said he occasionally likes a beer and a smoke and looks forward to having his own space after eight months at the Ottawa Mission — a non-profit, faith-based client service centre, for the city’s poor and destitute men. “They were really good to me here,” he said. “They really help you if you want to help yourself.” With his hair combed and a clean black t-shirt framing a wooden cross he constantly works his hands over, Williams doesn’t look like your average homeless

man. But Williams — like so many in his situation — lost touch with the community, and with it, a lot of his support systems. “I never had no kids,” he said. Algonquin grad, Wendy McCarl says that while seniors only represent about five per cent of the Mission’s total clientele, it can be hard to connect them with the right services. “A lot of them don’t even have the basic things like identification,” she said. “And it can be hard to convince them that there is another way to live.” One of McCarl’s biggest challenges is finding housing, both for seniors and young men alike. There are thousands of people on the city’s subsidized housing list, with a wait time of seven years or more. Added to that the complexity of placing seniors who may need special at home care of closer proximity to health care services, the odds often seem insur-

mountable. Seniors make up eight per cent of the people using emergency shelter in the city during an average annual year according to an Ottawa Council on Aging report in 2008. As rental costs climb and housing becomes costlier, those numbers are apt to climb. The same report, using 2001 census data, suggests that 41 per cent of seniors who were renting were in inadequate housing to meet their needs, or were spending more than 30 per cent of their annual income on rent. Senior renters were spending an average of 45 per cent of their annual income on rent. “It can be tough to keep up as you get older because you can’t work as much to make more money,” Williams said. Williams added after moving into his own place and getting settled he plans to continue visiting the Mission for meals and to stay in touch with friends. And he may

Actually, the Farmwife was away too. So you would think the mice had ample opportunity to play. But they didn’t. As far as I know, anyway. I’m not on Facebook anymore – my account has been hacked into one too many times – but I think if there had been a party at the Fisher farm in my absence, someone would have surely told me. Maybe it was because Milena, the eldest, was in charge. Or maybe it was because we were only gone for a few days, in the middle of the week. Not too many people would be up for a party with school the next morning. Or maybe we have done a pretty good job raising a fine bunch of young adults. In any case, we were happy to come home to find that the house was in good shape, the liquor cabinet was still full, and the animals were all where they were supposed to be. The only sign that people had been here in our absence, in fact, was that the barn cats were suddenly tame, crowding around my feet when I entered the barn, and the new ceiling fan in the sunroom works. Pat, the future son-in-law, fixed it. He gets points for that. So all is well. I don’t know why we didn’t do this sooner – leaving the farm in the hands of the very capable offspring while we take off for a few days. I guess I had nothing to worry about. Must have been thinking about someone else’s kids. Like the ones I grew up with. I remember going to one house party where a goat ended up in the kitchen and a dog was in the pool. The dog didn’t concern me much – he just swam to the end and climbed out -but I remember being worried that certain inebriated houseguests might try to feed the goat alcohol. There was no evidence of partying with farm animals in our absence. There were, however, signs that the animals were having their own party in the barn. Donkey had once again knocked the gate to the storage room off its hinges. He and several dozen of his woolly friends had their way with the cat food, sweet feed and bags of disinfecting powder in the storage. Oh yeah – and they spilled the Farmer’s tools all over the floor and pooped on them. Nice. It was during this in-

The Accidental Farmwife: While the Farmer was away

Sports Kemptville District Soccer Club hires new head coach CHRIS HANSEN Special to the Advance

The Kemptville District Soccer Club (KDSC) is pleased to announce that Alan Archer has been hired as the new club head coach. Archer brings genuine enthusiasm for the game coupled with a lifetime of experience and involvement in soccer that spans playing youth soccer in Ontario, player development for professional soccer in Canada and more recently, as a KDSC coach sharing his knowledge

and passion with players of all ages. Archer has many exciting plans for KDSC to be implemented in the coming years. This season’s focus will be on knowledge transfer through active participation. Archer has identified the need to support the coaches in all of our leagues from under three to adult by offering technical sessions, and a selection of suggested drills and techniques to teach. Incorporated in this plan will be mentoring and feedback for coaches to help them improve

their game. However, the program designed by Archer will not just focus on coaches. KDSC has more than 1,300 registered players and Archer wants to give them as much technical skill as possible, in an environment that allows them to work hard, listen and have fun. Recently Archer shared his philosophy with club executive. “We need to ensure that the player gets exactly what they need out of their participation and foster that passion for the game,” he

said. “Whether it’s the superstar that needs support to make it to the next level or the player that is thrilled to learn a new trick with the ball.” KDSC President Dave Avery is very excited about this new partnership. “Alan will be responsible for developing KDSC coaches as well as initiating, implementing systems of progressive skill development for our players,” he said.

On a gravel road off of Highway 416 surrounded by trees and greenery, Rideau Hill Camp has been in existence for 62 years. And soon, the camp will be opening its doors for another season. “We’re not a fancy camp. We’re pretty basic,” said Stacey Acres, director of Rideau Hill Camp. “It’s like a real family. It’s a community camp where everyone knows everyone.” The camp will resume its week-long summer sessions starting in July and is open to children of all ages – from babies to 16 years-old. This year the camp will be offering special arts and sports sessions. Campers will be able to decide between visual arts, drama and dance and sports will focus more on non-competitive sports like swimming and relay races. With a maximum of 85 campers for each week-long session,

Acres said campers get more one-on-one workshops with camp counselors. Rideau Hill Camp’s more personalized approach to children and youth is something that makes it unique, said Acres. “This camp can make kids take pride in being themselves,” said Acres. “When we hire our staff we tell them to be themselves. By being yourself, kids will know it is okay for them to be themselves.” Rideau Hill is also affiliated with the United Church, but Acres said that’s not the focus of the camp. “Children don’t have to be of any religion,” she said. “Returning campers will take new campers under their wing. It’s a non judgmental environment and we just really get to know the kids.” Acres said her hope for when campers leave at the end of their week-long stay is that they leave happy with who they are. “A lot of kids will come by themselves and it’s a really good opportunity to get to know them-

Rideau Hill Camp opens doors selves,” she said. Acres said the family aspect of the camp is what makes it so special. After six years of working there, she adds that it’s been amazing to see the returning campers grow up. For those interested in attending a week-long session or more at the camp, visit the Rideau Hill Camp website at http://www. At this web site, there is more information on the camp as well as a form to fill out and print out for participants who are interested. The camp costs $410 for a weeklong stay - including six nights. Those who are interested in staying for another week-long session can do that as well, said Acres. She adds that the camp is a great opportunity for any student who wants a positive experience this summer. “People at our camp are there for each other,” said Acres. “There’s room for everyone.”
