Food bank challenge sheds light on need JOSEPH MORIN

KEMPTVILLE 73’S COME OUT EVEN The Kemptville 73’s take their show on the road and give as good as they get. 14

Hoping to raise awareness about the challenge some rural residents have in getting a nutritious meal on a regular bases, the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark Health Unit have come up with an interesting program called “Do the Math-Eat the Math”. Enlisting the aid of volunteers from the community along with the House of Lazarus food bank, the program challenges individuals to get by on a week of typical groceries that can be found at the food bank.

The health unit’s 2010 Nutritious Food Basket Report demonstrated that the cost of feeding a family of four in Leeds, Grenville and Lanark is $163 per week averaging $706 per month. Organizers of the program hope to be able to use their results to support efforts of the Stop Community Food Centre in Toronto who have launched a campaign called “Put Food in the Budget” The group wants the province to agree to a $100 Healthy Food Supplement to all Ontarians living on social assistance. This past Wednesday, Reverend Lynda Harrison the Minister of St. John United

Church in Kemptville and Merrickville-Wolford Mayor Doug Struthers signed up to take the challenge. One of the features of the Do the Math-Eat the Math campaign is that participants will be posting a daily blog on the health unit’s website at Reverend Harrison was the first to select her food for the week. She was allowed, as a single family, to select 23 items only. Bread and one liter of milk were allowed and were not part of the 23 items. CHALLENGE see page 2

The lack of choice and the limit on what you could take were situations that both participants commented on as challenging. Doug Struthers said that he had signed up for the challenge because he wanted to see what it was like to have limited food choices. “I am interested to see how I feel by the end of the week,” he said.

North Grenville residents have been able to enjoy the convenience of having a Canadian Tire store in the community for the last half century. In early October, 2010, the Canadian Tire Cor poration broke ground on their new store in Kemptville at the Colonnade retail development. Motorists traveling to and from Ottawa along County Road 43 have watched as the Colonnade d eve l o p m e n t h a s gone from an empty grassed over field to an immense paved site to one that now has top name stores sprouting all over it. The Canadian Tire store, owned and operated by Frank Hoffman will continue to provide the same quality service and items that his existing store does. “By the time we open the new store in May of 2011,” said owner Frank Hoffman, “Canadian Tire will have been serving residents from Kemptville and surrounding area for fifty-one years.” The construction of the new store has created an opportunity for the store to enhance its already extensive automotive services. “We will be bringing in the latest in technological equipment,” said Hoffman. Not only will

the Canadian Tire store be bigger and better it will employ more people. Hoffman estimates that he will be going from his current 70 full and part-time staff to 100 employees. “I am very excited to be able to open up a brand new store in this community,” said Hoffman. “The community has always supported us. It is a good community to be in. I see growth and opportunity here and so does the Canadian Tire Corporation.” Canadian Tire has invested more than $7 million in their new project. The new store will be located at 311 Ryan’s Well Drive. The new building will be 35,800 sq feet in size and is designed to offer a one stop shopping experience for everything from home car and leisure activities. Following Canadian Tire’s Smart Store concept, the design of the store is expected to make the shopping experience and environment more fun, and according to a press release from Canadian Tire, more inspirational and easyto-navigate. Hoffman expects the quality of his customer service will remain as good as it ever has been at the new store. The store will feature a race track layout, customer pickup area, easy to read signs, information kiosks including ac-

Osgoode pathway debate continues

Youth centre seeks new board members

The debate over who gets to use the multi-use pathway in Osgoode just got more interesting. The pathway is a great idea but snowmobilers and pedestrians are at odds over who should be included as users of the path. The snowmobilers, cross country skiers and hikers have been sharing the path for the past few winters. Snowmobilers want to be allowed to continue to use the path during their six to eight week winter season and some residents in Osgoode want a ban on all forms of motor vehicles from Snowmobiles in the winter to ATV’s and dirt bikes in the summer. The City of Ottawa is of course caught in the middle. The application for funding stated that the path was to be used for pedestrians and cyclists. Back in Feb. and March, public meetings were held to try to resolve user issues. A small group of residents was adamant about the original pedestrian and cyclist’s designation use and did not want to see snowmobilers on the path. The snowmobilers for their part could not understand why anyone would have any issues with their winter sort, especially in a rural area like Osgoode. At that time supporters for a pedestrians only use, claimed their concerns had been ignored by the city and the snowmobilers. A ten-member committee looked at both sides of the debate and voted in favour of allowing snowmobiles on the path and other motorized vehicles could be allowed on it in 2013 after the path surface had stabilized. Now both sides are on a collision course. The first of three open house meetings will take place at the Osgoode Community Centre on Nov. 30. The city purchased the 22 kilometre pathway land back in 2005. The railway had first used the rail lines in 1854. By the 1990’s rail traffic had stopped and the rail lines were removed. The City of Ottawa was looking to its future and the rail bed was a perfect direction for the city to take when the idea of a light rail system became apparent. The outcome of this debate could affect similar pathways in North Gower and Stittsville. The debate is an interesting challenge for Mayor Jim Watson and an issue rural residents are watching closely.

The Accidental Farmwife There is ice to break now on the cow’s water when I go out in the morning. Winter is peeking her frosty head around the corner as if she has suddenly remembered Eastern The Accidental Ontario. The rams’ Farmwife hot breath Diana Fisher hangs in the air of the lambing pen. They seem agitated. Soon they will have their freedom, and then in approximately 148 days a bunch of lambs will be born. Steve seems like he’s raring to go. He keeps head-butting the feeder when I walk by and put my hand in to pat him on the head. He wants out. But first we have to sort our existing flock of ewes and lambs. Normally, we sell the fat male lambs in the fall. This year I think the Farmer wants to sell most of the lambs, to make way for a change

in the herd. We’re weeding out the Dorsets because they are too fluffy. I keep thinking about my little female, whom I did not name, who was born with club feet. I kept her penned with her mother until her feet straightened out, and then someone (likely the Belgian horse) stepped on her and broke her leg. Again she was penned with her mother and splinted until her leg healed. She is still fairly tame, and her mother has always been more like a dog than a sheep. She comes over to get her back scratched, pushing her nose into my hand. I don’t think I can say goodbye to either one of those two. On sorting day, I will put a ribbon around the necks of that mother and baby so that the Farmer knows who he should not be taking to market. There may be a discussion around that reasoning. But I don’t care. He’s not taking my favourite lamb. Yes, I know that’s not good farm sense – getting attached to my animals, but here’s the thing: I’m attached to many of them. I can’t afford to fix all of our barn cats, obviously. They are quite prolific and apparently they are also a Vice-President & Regional Publisher Chris McWebb Regional General Manager John Willems

bit spoiled. I am trying to tame the littlest ones so that they will let me treat them and medicate them when they are sick, and so that maybe they can be turned into nice housecats for someone. I have about half a dozen now, ranging in age from three months to a year that will allow people to pick them up and cuddle them. If you know anyone who wants a nice cat, let me know. I can hook them up. Soon there will be some other new arrivals on the farm. Mochacinna Latte (Mocha for short) has been cohabitating with Young Angus since last March, so she should be due to calf mid-December. The other two calves we have had born on the farm came without much fanfare or difficulty, so we are hoping this one will be the same story. As the weather gets colder and the food in the pasture gets scarce, Misty should be coming up to the stable more often. That’s a good thing, because we need to get a good look at her to see if she is also growing a baby belly. Winter’s a-comin’.

RBC turns books into cash for Hospital This past summer, the staff at RBC North Gower decided to have a book sale to raise funds for the Kemptville Hospital. They borrowed large folding tables from Perkins Lumber, put a few posters up in the branch, and lo and behold books started to appear. Three months later, through the generosity of book lovers in the North Gower community, a cheque for $1,225 has been donated to the Kemptville District Hospital Foundation. We all know that fund raising is ongoing, but the RBC staff wanted to target an amount so that the funds could go specifically towards the purchase of a blanket warmer for the Emergency Room. Anyone going into the ER knows how much comfort a warm blanket can bring. Books are still for sale at RBC North Gower until the end of November. Proceeds are now earmarked for the North Gower Out Reach Food Bank. A special tip of the hat to the staff of RBC and to all those who have contributed or bought books to allow for these important and worthwhile donations.

The old becomes new in Inkerman JOSEPH MORIN

The Wesleyan congregation at their Inkerman church has just completed a four-year refurbishing project. The project culminated in a rededication ceremony on Sunday, Nov. 21, 2010. Reverend Anita Goulet is the minister at the Inkerman Wesleyan Church. J.

She lives in Brockville. this is wonderful.” The refurbishing project took four years to complete, and the work was broken down into three stages. In the first year there was a great deal of electrical and insulation work completed. The church building was built in 1922. The original church had been built in 1897 but had burned down. “Whatever was there had served its purpose,’ said Minister Goulet. The second stage involved replacing all of the windows. The final stage involved replacing the worn carpets, giving the church a fresh coat of paint and most importantly replacing the wooden pews. “Many of our members are seniors,” explained Minister Goulet, “And the old wooden pews were very uncomfort-

Jim Watson prepares to leave North Grenville Concert Choir ZACK FORTIN Special to the Advance

The North Grenville Concert Choir has enjoyed consistent growth and popularity. One of the reasons why the choir has become a tradition in North Grenville is because of its leadership and dedicated members. Long time North Grenville resident Jim Watson directed the North Grenville Concert Choir since its beginning, and led the choir through numerous performances including pieces by Gilbert and Sullivan. Despite his dedication to the North Grenville community’s premier musical group, he has decided to step down and retire from his position as director at age 72.

Jim Watson has been a driving force behind the North Grenville Concert Choir.

The popular community choir was established in 1996, and since then Jim Watson has been there to conduct the choir. The Watson family would take time every year between September and January to travel to Florida. It is again the time for them to travel, only this time to visit family in Europe, consequently there is not enough time to spend conducting the choir. It goes without saying that the musical ATTRACTIONSONTARIO.CA

director will miss creating a show each year and working with such talented people. He feels it was a great honour to have worked with some many dedicated and talented people from all sectors of the North Grenville community. “To work with so many from such a choral community is a great experience,” he said. When asked if he had any memorable moments, he mentioned the time the choir did the H.M.S. Pinafore. “ I took the part of a sailor.” said Wat-

son. Also mentioned were the times when they would rehearse for so long that the manager of the auditorium would kick them out. Although Jim’s retirement will be a significant loss, the NGCC is moving forward looking for a new director. The choir is looking for someone who can continue the choir’s tradition of creating exciting and vibrant musical performances. The new director will have a widespread knowledge of both music (Grade 8 instruments and intermediate rudiments or equivalent) and Broadway musicals, as well as being open to all musical abilities. Jim Watson’s last directorial performance will be the annual performance of Handel’s Messiah, to be presented on Dec. 11 and 12. Accompanying the choir will be the Ottawa Divertimento Orchestra as well as soloists from the Ottawa area and from Maryland USA, including soprano Misty Manyard, alto Diana Cantrelle, tenor Christopher Oliveira and bass Roman Waschuk.

The Winchester District Memorial Hospital has enjoyed many milestones in recent years. On Oct. 28 the hospital honoured 37 individual staff members for their years of service. The combined number of years contributed by all of the staff members was a whopping 640. A highlight of the event was a special presentation to Dr. Gerry Rosenquist who has been at the hospital for 50 years. Hospital CEO Trudi Reid said that the entire staff were excited to be celebrating a halfcentury of service along with Dr. Rosenquist. In a press release she stated, “He has provided exemplary care to the communities we serve over the past half-century and that caring has been matched by an equal level commitment to the medical profession, WDMH and our academic mission.” Dr. Rosenquist is a graduate of the University of Alberta. He began his medical practice in Ontario in 1960 when he founded the St. Lawrence Medical Clinic. He became a Fellow with the Royal College of Physicians and the Surgeons of Canada in 1974. Dr. Rosenquist served as Chief of Obstetrics at the WDMH from 1975 to 2003. He was the hospital’s chief of staff until 2006 and later in 2007 took on the role of a lecturer for the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Ottawa. The hospital has come up with a new scholarship in Dr. Rosenquist’s name as a sign of the staff ’s respect and recognition. In a press release about the scholarship he stated, “I was completely surprised, said Dr. Rosenquist adding, “If I could have wished for anything, this scholarship would have been right at the top of my list. It is a real honour and I am very grateful.”

ways revolve around city hall. â€œâ€ŚWe recognize and value the many distinct communities that make up Ottawa,â€? Watson stated. The arts centre also has more seating, which will allow council members to invite more guests (each council member will receive 12 invitations to share with family and friends). In another twist, the event will be sponsored by Tim Hortons. Watson said the move is meant to cut down on costs to the city to “reflect the times.â€?

Christmas is just around the corner, and the community of Oxford Mills invites you to join them Dec. 3 for The Spirit of Christmas in Oxford Mills event. The evening will kick off with caroling in front of the historic Town Hall Library and the lighting of the Christmas tree, followed by a silent auction and goodies at the Maplewood Hall. The funds from this year’s silent auction, aside from benefiting the community association, will go towards two more local causes: the Champions for Kids charity which helps children of struggling families attain their self-esteem. The charity also helps with medical requirements. Some donations will be going to the Also The 30 Years Later Expedition, a biological survey being conducted by Dr. Fred Schueler and Aleta Karstad. Everyone is welcome to attend for an evening of treats, good company, Christmas spirit, and a special appearance by Father Christmas himself.

Osgoode community divided over pathway JOSEPH MORIN

2011 Brides

The Osgoode to Ottawa pathway has some Osgoode village residents concerned about a loss of quality of life. Residents have formed a new group called the Osgoode Village Resident’s Association. They want a ban on all motorized traffic on the path restricting use to cyclists and pedestrians only. Their position is fueling a debate over who can use the pathway. The central issue is the use of snowmobiles on the section of the 25 kilometer Distributed Thursday, Feb. 17 as a special section to the pathway that is adjacent to homes in the Canadian Gazette, Kemptville Advance, village.

what the pathway was for. Pedestrian and cycling use was the description placed on the application. The funding was given the green light based on that information and the application was approved in 2009. Now the city has included snowmobilers as users of the path. George Darouza is the president of the Osgoode Carleton Snowmobile Trail Club. He feels that the real issue is about urban sensibilities impacting on a rural community. Councillor Thompson agrees. “There is a difference between urban and rural,” he said, adding, that a one-size-fits-all way of thinking does not always work. Lori Daneliak is the president of the Osgoode Village Community Association. “We wanted the city to do a usage study,” she said after the association heard concerns about pathway usage. “We wanted to make sure there was security and that there was no ATV or dirt bikes on the path.” she said. Historically the snowmobile clubs in the area have been using trails they made on private property with landowner permission to get around the villages. Village residents Karen and Paul Wallace-Graner feel that the snowmobile noise issue has been ignored. They believe Osgoode residents should not be viewed as just another user group. On Nov. 18 Karen Wallace-Graner made a presentation to the Ottawa Pedestrian and Transit Advisory Committee. Her presentation focused on several points. One of them was a concern that ignoring the original conditions that had been set out in the application could cause liability problems for the city at a later date. In an effort to find out if other residents in the village had concerns, Lalonde and Wallace–Graner went door to door asking residents if they were concerned about the noise along the path adjacent to the village that would be generated by snowmobiles. They found many residents were not aware of the pros and cons of the different kinds of pathway usage. MEETINGS see page 12

PC leader primes for next provincial election DEREK DUNN

Two gentlemen in a Byward Market coffee shop discuss next fall’s provincial election, admonishing PC leader Tim Hudak for keeping a low profile among voters. They said it is time for change in Ontario and time for Hudak to step forward. In walked the opposition leader a few minutes later - for an exclusive interview with the Advance - saying it’s always a challenge for a party not in power to attract attention, but that he is raising issues in Question Period, travelling the province for town halls, and reaching out to media. “People are saying it’s time for a change,” Hudak said. “McGuinty and the Liberals are taking voters for granted in Ottawa and Eastern Ontario, and they’ll be in for a surprise on election day.” If it is true that Hudak - known by the moniker “Who dat?” – is a word rarely uttered in this part of the province, the same is often said about Ontario’s second largest city among politicos at Queen’s Park. He called the neglect felt by Eastern Ontario voters “legitimate” and longstanding, even though Premier Dalton McGuinty hails from the region. He said he would end the notion that Toronto can count on the federal government to support Eastern Ontario. A first step toward that end, he said, is to build on the “team of strong MPPs” already in the region.

his Progressive Conservative party, instead repeating a mantra of “standing up for working families.” But he won’t be swayed by social conservative movements in Alberta and the U.S. that play to a white, often aging base of angry voters. He insists that Ontario could have in him, the grandson of Slovak immigrants, its first non-British Isles premier. “New Canadians are increasingly turning to our party. They want to stand up for more a more prosperous province and a good future for their grandkids.” He talks about “mainstream conservative principles” of lower taxes and small government under the banner of a PC name that has been around for 60 years. He also insists the party’s federal

high taxes; • Creating more jobs.

ECONOMIC ISSUES Despite a theory that blames the world economic meltdown on 30 years of trickledown economics – low corporate taxes and few regulations – Hudak said voters are tired of the Liberals raising taxes and growing government. “There is an increasing appetite for change. People are tired of higher taxes and energy rates,” he said. “That manifested itself in recent municipal campaigns.” The PCs plan to run on: • Giving families a break; • Targeting government waste and

Momentum and poll results are growing Hudak’s direction, but he said he won’t be happy with winning an election be default. A tired, arrogant two-term Liberal government isn’t enough, he said. The PCs have Ontario’s largest survey in on route to mailboxes throughout the province. As for the weight of the Mike Harris years, the strife endured during the 1990s, Hudak doesn’t even mention the name. “I think people are going to be talking about the future of the province, not 1995.”

The city is hosting several open houses to determine what their “Sharing Rural Pathways� policy will be. There will be open houses on Tuesday, November 30 from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Osgoode Community Centre. A second open house will be held at the Sawmill Creek Community Center on Thursday, Dec. 2. The start time is 7:30 p.m.. The Prescott-Russell Pathway will have

its open house on Tuesday, Dec. 7 at Sir Wilfred Laurier Secondary School. The open house begins at 7:30 p.m.. Input from the public at the meetings will be used to create a usage policy for both the Osgoode pathway and the one in Prescott Russell. The input will go to the Agriculture and Rural Affairs and the Transportation Committee meeting to be held in Feb. of 2011. If approved it, will be brought into force starting in the spring of 2011. The same policy will likely apply to future multi-use pathways in the city.

73’s Playing Well - Take Three of Six Points BRIAN WILSON Special to the Advance


This week’s action opened on Tuesday, Nov. 16, when the Smiths Falls Bears came to town. Kemptville has been playing really well as of late, losing one game on a goal scored late in the third period and losing another in a shoot out. An exciting, hard fought game was expected and received by the loyal following. Alex Brenton opened the scoring for the 73’s just three and a half minutes into the period with his eleventh of the season. The Bears answered back before the end of the first and the period ended in a 1-1 tie. Smiths Falls came back in the second and scored twice to take a 3-1 lead. Kemptville fought back and Alex Brenton scored his second of the game to get the 73’s within one. Jake Clark tied the game with his fifth of the season and the period ended with the teams deadlocked at three. In the third, the Bears got a break when they took the lead on a shorthanded goal.

With just 15 seconds left in the overtime, Ottawa scored to earn the 4-3 victory. The 73’s newest addition to the roster is goaltender Kienan Brown. Keinan is a draft pick of the Peterborough Petes and was given the start against Ottawa. He faced 37 shots in his first appearance. Just as special teams were important in the previous games, the 73’s killed off seven penalties in this game keeping the Sens from scoring in the man advantage situations. Michael Rowbotham was named as the games second star. Up next for Kemptville, on Friday night, Nov. 26, the Cumberland Grads will be the opponent. Game time is 7:30. On Sunday, Nov. 28, the Gloucester Rangers will be in town. Puck drop is at 1:00 in order for fans to get home to watch the Grey Cup kickoff at 6:00.

Here, Matt Robertson, left, and Brett Du Puy of the Bears battle with Travis Armstrong, centre, of the 73’s.



15 Kemptville Advance - NOVEMBER 25, 2010


Cornerstone Mall, 2676 Cty Rd 43, Kemptville


LAURA MCEWEN Special to the Advance

The Kemptville Peewee C Storm girls stormed the Rockland-Clarence Creek hockey tournament on the weekend of November 5-7 to come out as the number one team to beat. Starting out the tournament with three games on Friday the girls tied their first game against Kanata, 1-1 with a goal from Ashley McEwen. Our AP, Lauren Bellefontaine brought some speed to the game to score the only two goals against Rockland and this gave goalie Kyra Valcour a shut out. The next game was at 6 p.m. that same night and the girls played the Montreal Falcons to a 2-1 victory to put them in first for the night. Jessi Zandbelt and Tyannah Lee scored the goals. On the Friday night, some of the girls had a chance to meet former Olympian, Katie Weatherston (2006) and to hold the torch from her run with the flame this past winter in her home town of Thunder Bay, Ontario; what an inspiration for the STORM girls. The girls held on to their lead when they played the Gloucester - Cumberland

team to win 4-0 on Saturday with two goals from Tiana Lisle and a goal from both Lila Elliott and Kara Bartholomew to finish the game, and the tournament victory. The Most Valuable Player award, (MVP) was awarded at each game with the first being given to Amanda Switzer for her awesome defensive playing. The next MVP was awarded to Lauren Bellefontaine for her two goals and being a team player, MVP for the third game was awarded to Jessi Zandbelt for an outstanding defensive game, the fourth and final game, MVP was awarded to Kyra Valcour for her amazing goal-tending. The girls also had some cheerleaders Emily Bellefontaine (out with an ankle injury) and Grace Petschenig (out with a broken wrist) and Logan Coons with lots of screaming for the team. Many thanks and congratulations go out to the parents and the girls for the many hours on the road this weekend, and for cheering on the girls, as well as the coaches Duke Elliott, Andre Kingsbury, and Steve Lisle and trainers Randy Lee and Tina Flichel-Fawcett for their dedication to the team. The girls sure did bring the STORM to Rockland.

Featuring a high-horsepower engine, heavy-duty steel serrated auger and extra-wide clearing width, our snow throwers by Cub Cadet tackle the big snowfalls and the tough jobs with ease.

For me it brought back memories of so many people especially my parents who provided opportunities few people would ever dream of and left me with a debt of gratitude I can never repay.

WAGAR, GLORIA In memory of a beloved dear one, Nov. 21, 2009. God finds the softest pillow, to lay her head upon. To place a kiss upon her cheek, and tell her who it’s from. To wrap your arms around her in a neverending hug To tell her how much we miss her and give her all our love. Love always, Shirley and the late Carman Wagar and family. I miss you, sis. You are always in my heart forever. Love, Lori

We knew we live in a wonderful caring community and nowhere has this been more evident than in the many cards and good wishes we have received over the past weeks to congratulate us on our celebration of 50 years of Ted’s legal career and our marriage as well as 50 years of life in Canada. We count our blessings daily and send love and best wishes to all our family and friends who shared in our milestones.

I would like to thank the town of Kemptville, the sponsors, the overflow crowds and all those who contributed to the successful Sports Hall of Fame night at the NG center.
