Three month grace period for bag tags HOWAIDA SOROUR Special to the Advance

New wellheads, new garbage tags and increased tipping fees are in the works following a North Grenville Committee of the Whole meeting held on Jan. 17. Those ubiquitous garbage bag tags could go up in price as early as March of this year and could go hand in hand with new yard waste tipping fees. The proposed hike is based on recommendations brought forward by Karen Dunlop, director of public works, on behalf of the Waste Reduction Committee. Dunlop also announced that an application for funding to deepen the casings on two of the municipality’s deep aquifer water-sources has been approved. The project will cost $155,100, one-third ($52,000) to be paid for by the municipality and the rest funded by the Ontario Drinking Water Stewardship program. “That way, we reduce the potential sources of contamination that could affect our wells from 1000 to 100,” said Dunlop. The work slated for the Kernahan and Van Buren wellheads, was accounted for in the 2010 budget, and will take six weeks

to complete. Meanwhile garbage bag tags, which first came into effect in September 1999, at one dollar per bag, have already seen two rate hikes since then, and as of this year could go up another 25 cents to $1.75. “The current bag tags still don’t cover the cost of collection,” explained Dunlop. Last year, it cost the municipality $616,000 to collect, transport and dump North Grenville’s solid waste. The 25-cent hike will increase the municipality’s revenue by $66,000 over a 12-month period, so although it will not completely cover this year’s costs, it will come fairly close. “We’ve got to pay these expenses and gas has gone up, transportation has gone up so it was a necessary increase,” said Deputy Mayor Ken Finnerty. The proposed new bag tags would be a reddish pink colour to distinguish them from the green tags currently in use. “The main thing here, is to encourage people to recycle better and not use so many garbage bags,” said Finnerty. Other tipping fees such as the tonnage rate could also go up. TIPPING FEES see page 2

Joan Robinson and Mavis Elstone of St. Andrew’s United Church Women have been busy making milk-bag mats for children and adults in Haiti as part of the pastoral charge’s mission to help others.

Making mats for Haiti LJ MATHESON

Joan Robinson just started crocheting last week, while her friend Mavis Elstone learned from her mother at a young age. These Bishops Mills women are part of the St. Andrew’s United Church Women (UCW)

who are collecting plastic milk bags which will be crocheted into sleeping mats for children and adults in third world countries. “It’s just part of the church’s mandate,” said Robinson, who is a member of the Bishops Mills church. HAITI see page 3

Those 130 tonnes cost the municipality more than $12,000 to handle, and would have cost just shy of $30,000 if the full 475 tonnes had been transported out. The recommended changes were adopted at the Jan. 24 council meeting.

The current $120 charged for a tonne of untagged solid waste will go up to $140, and a tonne of yard waste will cost $65. A new $5 tipping fee for a half tonne load of brush and y a r d w a s t e was also recommended.

a.m. the House of Lazarus was open for business as usual. Jack Hoogenboom has been volunteering at the House for the last few years. His job in the annex is to take items such as appliances when they are dropped off and check them out. Before his day could really get started someone from the building right beside his mentioned that the lights were not working at one of the workstations. He checked the electrical panel and found nothing unusual. He then did a walk around the building to see if anything was wrong and that was when he spotted smoke coming out of the room where items are dropped off. He checked the room and found flames coming out from behind some electrical outlets. The flames were climbing the wall and had just started to reach for the ceiling. “They were at least 12 feet high,” said Hoogenboom. He then grabbed a fire extinguisher and went after the fire. After using up one extinguisher the fire was still burning but he had managed to contain it. He went looking for another one to keep the fire under control. Fortunately all of the fire extinguishers had been recently checked and they were right where they were supposed to be. Meanwhile the Mountain Fire Department had been called. There was very little damage to items stored in the annex, as the fire was contained to just one corner of the room. However, there will most likely be some smoke damage to some of the clothing that is still stored in boxes waiting to be sorted. The fire department is investigating the cause of the fire.


Milk bag mats help victims of the Haitian earthquake work. Tote bags crocheted from these milk bags are also used in hospitals and clinics in third world countries. They are given out, filled with some of the basic essential items needed for survival. There is a province-wide network of over 70 small groups who have been involved in making milk bag bed mats for about six years now.

There are already some local groups in the Ottawa area. The Ottawa Catholic School Board, for instance, has several schools involved in collecting, cutting and crocheting these mats. These schools donated 50 mats last fall. There are other groups such as ones associated with the Bells Corners United Church and Riverside United Church. 443900

“It’s just part of the church’s mandate,” said Robinson, who is a member of the Bishops Mills church. “We do other things too, not just these mats.” Robinson is a quilter and Elstone says she would rather knit, but together the women and long-time friends have been turning collected milk bags – the outer bags that hold the three litres of milk – into small sleeping mats. The UCW have donated blankets (knitted and crocheted blankets as well as quilts) to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, and other local hospitals, to comfort premature babies and their parents. They have also donated hand-made items like lap blankets to seniors’ homes, and have made crafts and baked goods for church fundraisers. “It’s just another thing that we do,” Robinson said. Elstone shared the story of how the women became involved in the creation of plastic mats. “Last year, a lady in Cornwall (part of the Seaway Valley Pastoral Charge) mentioned the milk bag project and to do (this) for Haiti,” she said, and then they obtained more information about it from the Prescott church whose women’s group made mats there as well as in Hallville. “Last November we had a gathering where the UCW saw a mat being done and I thought, we can do this,” Elstone said. They have collected milk bags through word of mouth and have finished one mat. It takes about 300 milk bags to make a small mat. The women have more than 1,000 milk bags now – and are steadily working away at providing more finished items. “It’s not a pretty thing, but it’s functional,” Elstone said of her mat which measures one metre wide by 1.5 metres long for a child. Adult mats are one metre wide by two metres long. Once they have a few more to ship, the women will wrap used books and make a second donation to the cause. “We are collecting used religious books as well and will wrap them in the mats to ship. It’s getting more than one use out of the

mats,” noted Robinson. In turn, the mats, which are not biodegradable, don’t end up in landfill sites. The mats are washable, quick-dry bed mats that can provide an alternative for homeless people in third world countries whose only alternative is to sleep on the damp, hard ground. Medical teams in earthquake-ravaged Haiti have found these mats invaluable in their

Kemptville Advance - JANUARY 27, 2011


Anything is possible The marketplace is like a boiling caldron of opportunity, loss, and potential success. When all of the right ingredients are present, the result is a stew we can all appreciate. The growth in North Grenville, is not unlike the smell of something good cooking in that community pot. Why now, and why here, does not really matter much as residents in Kemptville marvel at all of the residential construction going on around them. Something has changed. When Highway 416 was being planned, everyone in the area looked forward to a safer drive to and from Ottawa and Brockville. Shortly before construction of the 416 was started, a young family was torn apart by a

drunk driver meandering up the old two lane 16 highway. That family was from Kemptville, and if they had been in the same position today, their tragedy might have been averted thanks to the twolane highway. No one talked about the stream of people who would spill down the new highway and look for a place to live in Kemptville. Most were relieved at the safety the highway brought to the area. At the same time, developers had decided to risk their capital in North Grenville counting on the hope that the momentum of a small amount of successful growth would mushroom into a waterfall of new homes. Now we have most, if not all of the ingredients for a growing community. Energy,

capital money, a vision and the political will to take on future discussions about which way the community will go and grow. Previous councils have fussed over all of these ingredients and bit by bit the recipe has been put together. As community growth hits Kemptville and splashes on the smaller villages that surround it, residents new and old must try to enjoy the coming debates about how to get the most out of community growth, while leaving out the worst. From all that we have seen as a community in the past, anything is possible. The past can exist alongside the future. North Grenville now has all of the right people in the right place at the right time to make that happen.


Welcome to the new, cheery Canada I must have missed the big announcement, so I was more than a little surprised to see the sign greeting us when we walked into Canada Customs and Immigration at the airport. “Hi. Step in to Canada,” it said. Hi? Since when does the Government of Canada say “hi” to people? Isn’t that a little … well, breezy? Particularly for a government of a country known for its reserve. And particularly at Immigration. After all, this is where a visitor from another land makes his first acquaintance with our country. So you’d think the sign would be more formal, more august somehow. This is a serious business, coming to Canada, with immigration officers glowering at you and demanding that you show good reason for deigning to enter. Or so we thought. Obviously, somebody decided it should be less so. Rather than saying “Welcome to Canada. Stay in line,” the signs say: “Hi. Step in to Canada.” It’s actually quite a nice greeting, when you’re coming back from a stay in another country and feeling glad to be home. But it’s a bit of a shock. Just like finding out, when you open the hometown newspaper, that reusable bags, the kind we have been urged to, um, reuse, may pose perils that we have never considered. Usually, we think of

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town this as a very cautious place, not flinging around cheery welcomes or taking chances with reusable bags. When we travel, people ask us what Canadians are like. Are they like Americans? Well, sort of, we reply. We sound more or less the same. We eat the same kind of food, watch the same kind of movies, listen to the same kinds of music. There’s hockey, of course. That makes us different. And we might be a little less informal. We wouldn’t be the kind of people who put up a sign saying “Hi!” at the airport. Except that apparently we are. How this came to be is a mystery. If there was a big discussion about it, about whether signs should say “hi” at airports instead of “please wipe your feet and try not to raise your voice” we missed it somehow. Perhaps we were out of the country when Parliament debated that.

Somehow no one was talking about it when we returned, and no one was talking about the big competition run by Citizenship and Immigration Canada to come up with a new slogan to greet people at international airports. This being Canada, we couldn’t have changed the sign without a competition. These might have been some of the losing entries: “Welcome to Canada. No smoking anywhere.” “Hi. Please don’t use plastic bags and the reusable ones aren’t so great either.” “Welcome to Canada. No joking with the Immigration officers.” “Hi. Newspapers in the black box, tin cans in the blue box, food scraps in the green.” “Hi. Please remove overshoes before stepping in to Canada.” “Enjoy your stay and be sure to check out our anti-idling bylaws.” Well, we know now what the winner was. The next step is to consider the implications. Are we, as Canadians, ready to become the gregarious, hi-saying folks implied by the sign? Must we now talk to each other in elevators? Can we leave our overshoes on? Will it now be against the law to say Vice-President & Regional Publisher Chris McWebb Regional General Manager John Willems

“Good afternoon”? May we now wear baseball caps inside the house? May our children address their teachers by their first names? Will fistbumps replace handshakes at diplomatic receptions? And, finally, how does all this affect the reusable bag situation? Words have consequences, as we learn every day. The government has apparently decided to be chummy with Canadians. Exactly how chummy we’ll learn around income tax time. We can’t wait for the letter. “Hi,” it will say. “Step in to the tax audit.”

the pen with the squasher. Eenie and Meenie had been doing quite well, despite their diminutive stature. Until that fat ewe lay down on the smallest of them. Why does the ewe do this? She has plenty of room in her pen. She is not overly large or unable to locate the lambs under her girth.

Perhaps she feels that she doesn’t want to care for more than one lamb and so she purposely squashes the other. Or maybe she routinely eliminates the runt of the litter to allow more milk for the strong lambs. Of course, in this case it wasn’t even her lamb so that’s hardly fair. I googled the problem but have yet to find an answer. I find this particular “survival of the fittest� behaviour quite despicable. It was interesting watching the cow, Ginger, when her calf was weak and unable to eat. She spent hours trying to nudge the calf to her feet. After more than a day with little success, however, Ginger began to show her frustration. Instead of standing still so that the calf could find the milk, Ginger would slowly turn in circles to avoid contact. It was as though she had rejected the sick calf. Thankfully, after receiv-

Ewe are Despicable I knew there was a reason why I hated that ewe. I recognized her obnoxious bellow as the loudest of the herd. She always waited until you were right up close to her, filling her water bucket or feeder, and then she would just holler, right in your ear. But there is another reason to dislike this sheep. She is a lamb squasher. It’s all coming back to me now. Last year she had two lambs. One was very weak and I had to feed it a few times a day with a bottle until it could feed itself. Then came the fateful morning when I went out to feed my lamb and found her squashed, flat as a pancake in the middle of the pen. That stupid ewe had squashed her. This year the ewe only had one lamb – a big, healthy male. If she lay down on him, he would probably be able to wriggle out from underneath her. But we put another ewe with her little twins in



ing that milk drenching and selenium injection, the calf ’s suckling instinct returned, it had more energy and was able to latch on to its mother. They were able to bond and appear to be doing well now. Mocha had her calf a few days later and we ushered the two of them into the lambing area to be warm – with Young Angus the bull hot on our heels. He pawed at the door to the lambing room and bawled. He is very interested in his two new sons. Mocha’s calf had no problem nursing. That was a relief. And now it is Big Betty’s turn (or, as the Farmer has named, her, Ugly Betty). I don’t think we will be able to fit her into a lambing pen, but we might be able to find a sheltered space in the middle of the barn to protect her new calf from the cold when it is born. It just might be a bit of a rodeo getting her in there.

Animal rights groups are howling over future rural Ottawa coyote culls, but the provincial ministry in charge of sanctioning them says those dissenting are likely barking up the wrong tree. With coyote contests scheduled for North Gower, Osgoode and West Carleton in the coming weeks, Ministry of Natural Resources spokesperson Jolanta Kowalski said as long as those involved have their small game hunting licenses – which costs $20.75 annually – and observe Municipal No Discharge of Firearms bylaws they’re doing nothing wrong. “It’s really important to remember, in Ottawa, coyotes can be hunted year-around and there’s no limit on the number of animals one hunter can kill,� she said. The Animal Alliance of Canada and Ontario Wildlife Coalition have been urging the provincial government to take steps to end the hunts. They also released a letter sent Dec. 16 to Natural Resources Minister Linda Jeffrey. Toronto lawyer Peter Copeland, who represents the Ontario Wildlife Coalition, urges the ministry to contact what he calls the ‘Osgoode Game and Fish Club’ to inform them of the prohibitions on bounties in the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act and to consider prosecution if the coyote hunt goes ahead. To back up their contention, the animal protection

groups point out that Deb Stetson, director of the Wildlife Policy Section of the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, wrote in a May 28, 2010 letter that “Section 11 of the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act, 1997, states that it is an offence to hunt for gain, or to induce another person to hunt for gain.� Kowalski said the ministry received the letter from Copeland. She said that while the culls are legal, they will be monitored closely to see if hunters have the appropriate credentials and are fol-

In 2009, there were 320 permits issued and in 2010, that number was surpassed with a total of 350 permits issued. In the final month of 2010, 14 were given out. The increase in commercial development along County Road 43 is being matched by a drive to provide more residential units for the Kemptville and surrounding area. Harry Pratt, of Royal LePage Gale Real Estate, longtime North Grenville resident and community leader feels that it is North Grenville’s time. “The real estate market has been very busy,” he said. He believes that over the next four years North Grenville will see $100 million in new growth. Pratt loves where he lives and says that newcomers will feel the same way. “There is so much going on in this town,” he explained. “This is a wonderful place to live”. “Residential growth has been great for North Grenville, for its growth and prosperity, and has set it on its path to its next stage in North Grenville’s growth,” said North Grenville Mayor David Gordon. ”North Grenville now looks towards more commercial and light industrial growth to create more jobs and opportunities for the citizens of North Grenville,” he added. Forbes Symon, the municipality’s director of planning and development said, “Residential growth in North Grenville has been very stable over the past 10 years.” During that time an average of 95 to 100 units were typically built in the area. “In 2010, we jumped to 175 units,” said Symon. “That tells me that this community has been discovered as the place to be. I think we have reached a tipping point.” New and current residents can enjoy better recreational facilities along with new high schools, a growing commercial sector, public library and renovated hospital. Forbes said that the next step was accessing the trail system in North Grenville which would bring another great recreational component to the community. In 2009, the potential for growth in North Grenville was identified and supported by the province. North Grenville received more than $58 million in provincial dollars to improve the area’s educational facilities and the quality of life in general. There was $17.4 million for a new North Grenville District High School, $10.5 million for an addition to St. Michael Catholic High School, $27.5 million for the Kemptville District Hospital expansion plan and $2.6 million for the new North Grenville Public Library.

Park View Place Condominiums A first for the community is the Stanleyfield Village. It is located at the south end of Kemptville. The project will provide new homes, but with a twist. For the first time, in this part of Ontario, and for the first time in North Grenville, Options for Homes has joined forces with the LA Group to come up with a plan that will give families an opportunity to own their home at an affordable price. The project will see 136 units built over then next two to three years. Getting those home prices down to a level that more people can afford is what Options for Homes is all about. “This is a very innovative idea,” said Alex Heath the regional manager for Options for Homes. “We are paying for the development charges.” By paying the development charges and asking the municipality to become a partner in the housing project, the actual cost of the homes can be brought down to an entry level price that more people can afford. Heath pointed out that as long as there was a demand for this kind of development, they would continue to offer it. “We are aiming for shovels in the ground in March of 2011,” said Heath. “Everyone will qualify for a 14 per cent reduction in the price of their

Stanleyfield Village home.” There is a special fund for those home buyers who need a little more financial room. Just down the road from Stanleyfield Village is another residential development by Park View Homes. The North Gower company has been building homes in North Grenville for the past 10 years. Andrew and Tim Cinnamon, have a number of projects on the go and have

been involved in the majority of new home construction in the area. Their latest success is Park View Place Condominiums at Brookside Park on Van Buren Street. They suggested their combination of quality an affordable homes is perfect for Kemptville. The construction of a 46-unit condominium is already under way. Before the ground was broken on the project, 23 units were already sold. Similar projects are under way in Smiths Falls and Carleton Place. “We feel that Kemptville is one of the best kept secrets in the Ottawa area,” said Tim Cinnamon. “A lot of people want a rural type of lifestyle but with some urban sensibilities.” They want to build a sense of community into their projects. Andrew Cinnamon said, “It is very important that we use local contractors.” The Brookside Park condominium project could not come at a better time. The brothers say that there is a generation of people ready to downsize and still want to live an independent lifestyle. The condominium project is the perfect solution for many homebuyers. There are several other projects they have finished off. Park View’s investment in time and energy in the North Grenville area has led the way in terms of getting interest and residential growth going in the area. Cory Lockwood of Lockwood Brothers Construction is getting ready to build a small subdivision on Clothier Street in Kemptville called Scholar Heights. The project should be well under way by the beginning of summer. The semi-detached homes will be designed to give maximum quality but at the same time be affordable. “This is a good community for anyone to move to,” said Lockwood. The company moved to Kemptivlle from Montreal 11 years ago. “This is home for us now,” he said. Lockwood adds that people who come to the area feel welcome here and that is one of the many reasons why investing in growth is easy for companies like Lockwood Brothers Construction. “When we first started to talk about the project we received lots of support,” said Lockwood. Westerra Homes is another new subdivision in Kemptville. Over the past four years, Westerra Homes has brought in over $5.1 million reflecting a growth of almost 2,000 per cent. Brothers Ron and Robert Noseworthy are the driving force behind Westerra Homes. “We build custom homes at subdivision prices,” said Robert Noseworthy. “We were the first subdivision in our immediate area to offer Energy Star homes and we believe in hiring local trades people and buying from local businesses. North Grenville is the fastest growing area in Eastern Ontario. Barring unforeseen circumstances, this region south of Ottawa, will grow for many years to come.”



This year the contest will be on March 14 at the Old Co-Op in North Gower. While the perception has been a coyote cull would help lessen or eliminate the species in the area – part of the reasoning behind the North Gower contest – the ministry says that thinking is flawed. “Culls or bounties have a long history of being ineffective at achieving population reduction objectives because coyotes are the type of animal that can do what’s called compensatory reproduction,” Kowalski said. “The more coyotes you kill, the more the remaining coyotes will reproduce to fill the loss. “If people are going around indiscriminately killing coyotes and say that they’re helping deal with problem coyotes that might be affecting farmers and landowners, that’s simply not the case.” Atkinson said he’s heard the ministry’s take on the coyote mindset, but disagrees. “We’ve also been contacted by the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters and they say coyotes that are hunted are more wary of humans,” he said. While Atkinson couldn’t guess what the turnout for the North Gower contest would be, he said that one hunter brought in 114 coyotes last year – a sign of just how many inhabit the area.

But while Atkinson said he wants to alleviate the issue of coyotes rooming around, he was quick to point out the cull is not intended to be a free-for-all. “Our contest is not for people who don’t hunt coyotes,” he said. “It’s for people who hunt coyotes on a regular basis. Most people who entered last year were coyote hunters.” North Gower resident and Rideau-Goulbourn Coun. Scott Moffatt refrained from comment about the culls. He did say that he has four coyote pictures on his cell phone taken at his nearby parents’ residence in midday, noting the swell in food sources has played into the coyote doom in the few years. Moffatt added that development expansion is also a reason why places like North Gower, Osgoode, West Carleton and Greely are seeing more coyotes. “That will continue to happen and the likelihood is that they’ll get pushed out even further, which means they’ll be in the North Gower area more,” he said. Moffatt added that it’s legal for property owners to kill them, a point he said makes sense given the safety issue involved. “A coyote isn’t that dangerous if you’re right next to it,” he said. “But what if you’re between it and something else?” With files from John Carter

At the Monday night’s Committee of the Whole Council Meeting more discussion took place in regards to the deferral of Development



Three Ottawa-area communities concerned about proposals for industrial scale wind turbine developments held a public meeting on Sunday Jan. 23 at the Alfred Taylor Centre in North Gower. About 150 people were in attendance at the centre where they heard personal stories from three people whose lives have been changed by turbine projects in their areas. The North Gower Wind Action Group, the South Branch Wind Opposition Group, and the Beckwith Responsible Wind Action Group hosted the event. “It’s a way for us to get information out to people so they can make informed decisions about wind turbines,” said Jane Wilson of the North Gower Wind Action Group. Posters dotted the walls of the community centre, outlining some of the issues residents are concerned about – like health risks of living close to a wind turbine, and how property values will be affected. Posters to stop the wind turbine projects and buttons declaring “No to Turbines” were also prevalent. One of the guest speakers was Ian Hanna of Prince Edward County who has launched a lawsuit against the Ontario government and the Green Energy Act. He says he has travelled extensively throughout Ontario and doesn’t feel any of those communities should be home to a cluster of wind turbines. “There isn’t a community in Ontario that I want to see destroyed by an enormous industrial disaster,” he said. Hannah says that the government failed to comply with the Precautionary Principle, as it is required to do, when it established the Green Energy Act regulations. The Precautionary Principle requires that, in situations where there is scientific uncertainty about environmental or human health effects of a proposed action, the proponent should not proceed until the uncertainty is satisfactorily resolved.

All of the students and staff at the Kemptville Public School got together to send this banner to Canadian troops in Afghanistan. The banner has the signature and pictures of all of the students from the school as well as the staff. and 3 feet high. “Each student and staff member signed their name,” said Hanna. Along with the names of all 427 students in the school, pictures of each class were put on the banner. “We just wanted to let the troops know in Afghanistan that we were thinking of them,” she said. “I had to roll it up really tightly,” said Boudreau Ivany as she packed the banner into her fathers luggage. “It was nice to see some of the things that students wrote,” she said. The banner was completed on Dec. 22. Over Christmas, the Kemptville Public School banner hung in the mess hall at Kandahar. Boudreau Ivany felt that the project was an excellent way

for students to make a personal connection with the Canadian troops in Afghanistan. “ The banner was very well received by the soldiers, “ said Chief Warrant Officer Boudreau. “They are always happy to receive such things, and it gives them strength to have Canadian school children’s support. I was very proud to have brought it over, especially with my granddaughter’s picture and signature on it. It is encouraging to see the support we’re getting from the schools and the Canadian public.” Now that Christmas is over the banner may end up with a permanent spot hanging in an aircraft hanger in Afghanistan.

Students at the Kemptville Public School along with staff, have sent a homemade banner to Canadian troops in Afghanistan, as a Christmas present. School principal Nancy Hanna explained, “The original idea was for the students to send Christmas greetings to the troops.” Amie Boudreau Ivany is the mother of Isabelle, one of the school’s kindergarten students. Her father, Chief Warrant Officer Andre Boudreau, was getting ready to head over to Afghanistan for a round of meetings in Kandahar. She suggested that he could bring something from the school over to the troops for Christmas. “I thought this was a great opportunity to send something over,” remembers Boudreau Ivany. The request, to come up with something to send to Canadian troops, was given to teacher Shelly Doucet’s Grade 8 class. The plan was to create a paper banner that would fit into Chief Warrant Officer Boudreau’s suitcase. The banner ended up being 20 feet long

Central Hockey League recognizes volunteers BRIAN WILSON

Special to the Advance

On Friday Jan. 14, before the Kemptville 73’s game against the Ottawa Junior Senators, two of the teams’ volunteers were recognized by the league for their contributions. Peter Peckett, Director of Statistical Information for the Canadian Central Hockey League, (CHL), was on hand to make the presentation. Peckett said, “The Friends of the CHL program has been designed to recognize the long standing efforts of individuals who have contributed greatly to the success of a CHL team and thereby to the league itself.” Carol Morrison has been a familiar figure at the admissions table since the team entered the

CHL. She spent many years with the Junior B team as well. Carol has also assisted the league many times by performing similar duties at showcase events. Bruce Riman has also been a familiar figure at hockey arenas. Bruce has been involved with hockey operations for more than twenty years. He has been a goal judge, penalty box attendant, announcer, scorekeeper and timer for hockey in that time. He has offered his services at every league sponsored showcase event since the 73’s entered the league. Carol and Bruce were both presented with certificates and a gift from the league. Peckett also said that “The CHL is pleased and proud to recognize their contributions and consider them true Friends of the CHL.

The Kemptville chapter of the Masonic Zion Temple number 38 have pledged $1,000 each year for the next three years to the Room to Read campaign. They gave the campaign chair the first cheque on Friday morning, Jan. 21 at the site of the new North Grenville Library.

Salvation Army enjoys community generosity The Kemptville Salvation Army reports that generosity was the gift they received from North Grenville residents this Christmas season. Captain Simone Downey said that thanks to an army of volunteers the Salvation Army was able to raise $42,491.09 through their Kettle Campaign. The original goal had been $40,000. The letter campaign came up a bit short with $26,089 being raised. That total fell short of the $31,000 budgeted goal. The Salvation Army was able to fill their Food Bank for January thanks to the excess food donations they received.

On Tuesday, Jan. 18, the Carleton Place Canadians visited the North Grenville Municipal Centre to tangle with the red-hot 73’s. After back to back shut outs, Kemptville was fired up to keep their winning ways going. Alex Brenton opened the scoring, from Clark and Hutton, just 51 seconds into the game. Two minutes later, Ben Hutton put Kemptville up by two. The goal was set up by goalie, Keinan Brown with a great clearing pass. That was the end of the evening for the Canadians’ starting goalie. Carleton Place roared back and scored three times before the period ended. The Canadians took a 32 lead to the dressing room at the intermission. They made the necessary adjustments during the break and returned to form. Alex Brenton notched his second of the game and

twenty-third of the season, from Hough and Plouffe. A minute and a half later, Pat Cameron put the 73’s ahead to stay. The goal was Cameron’s fourth of the season, assisted by Lesway and Jackson. Nick Duhn added one more before the end of the period, giving Kemptville a 5-3 lead after two. Duhn’s marker was set up by Plouffe and Hough. Carleton Place got one back in the third but Brown shut the door the rest of the way. The 5-4 victory was Kemptville’s third in a row. Alex Brenton and Jake Clark were named first and second stars. Friday, Jan. 21 saw the team travel to Hawkesbury to take on the Hawks once again. The game turned out to be fast paced, being played in just two hours. There was no scoring in the first period. Special teams did the damage for the 73’s in the second. Brock Plouffe scored his thirteenth of the year on a

power play at 6:33 of the period. The goal was assisted by Hutton and Duhn. At 12:12, Pat Cameron tallied the 73’s second power play goal from Hutton and Clark. The period ended with Kemptville holding a 2-0 lead. In the third, the Hawks broke goalie Kyle Lamothe’ s bid for a second straight shut out. It was the only puck that got past him in two games. Ben Hutton added his seventh of the year into an empty net to give the 73’s a 3-1 win. Hutton’s goal was set-up by Plouffe and Clark. Ben Hutton was named the games’ first star and Jake Clark, the second. On Sunday evening, Jan. 23, Kemptville put its four game winning streak on the line when the Smiths Falls Bears came to town. The 73’s got off to the quick start they were hoping for. Brock Plouffe scored his fourteenth goal of the season assisted by Rowe at the 3:05 mark of the first period. It was a hard hitting, fast

game with both teams going for it. The Bears scored twice before the end of the period to hold a 2-1 advantage at the first break. In the second, Smiths Falls scored once to take a 3-1 lead but Alex Brenton got that one back before the conclusion of the second. The goal was Brenton’s team leading twenty-

fourth of the year and was setup by Duhn and Clark. The third period didn’t provide many scoring chances for the 73’s but the Bears capitalized on theirs, scoring three unanswered goals to rack up a 6-2 victory. Brock Plouffe was named the games’ second star. The 73’s hope to start an-
