Kemptville’s Norma Fisher was singled out by band leader Patrice Painchaud for a serenade at the beginning of their well received show. The band is made up of multi-instrumentist brothers and their sister. The group has mastered more than 1,000 songs and has performed in locations such as Houston, Nassau, Las Vegas, New York and Paris.

Elegant evening at KDH Spring Gala JOSEPH MORIN

FOUNDERS DAY North Grenville area Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Venturers celebrate Founders Day. They honoured Scout movement founder Lord Baden-Powell.


The Kemptville District Hospital’s Spring Gala on March 5 exceeded organizers’ expectations. More than 170 people attended the fundraiser, which according to Melissa Graham, executive director of the Kemptville District Hospital Foundation, will become an annual event. The night of fine dining at the North Grenville Municipal Centre was courtesy of A. J. Catering and included an exciting live

auction led by Hugh Fawcett of Winchester. The evening is expected to have earned more than $45,000 for the foundation. All proceeds go towards the maintenance and purchasing of equipment for the hospital. The evening was capped off by a performance by Painchaud Productions in the theatre. Foundation chair Dermid O’Farrell said that the gala’s event committee, along with all of the community sponsors as well as those who came to the dinner, made the event a success. Julie Norenberg turned the front lobby of the municipal centre into an

elegant and soothing space, offering diners the promise of a special evening as they arrived for the gala. “This was one of the best events I have ever attended,” commented Graham. “The entire evening went really well.” The Kemptville District Hospital has enjoyed the long-standing support of the North Grenville community. Their next fundraiser will be the KDH Corporate Golf Tournament on September 14, 2011. Next year’s Spring Gala will take place on March 31, 2012.

Should a train derailment strand hundreds of passengers outside Merrickville, an ice storm sweep through Bishop’s Mills, or an influenza pandemic cripple North Grenville’s hospital, these municipalities would immediately look to their closest neighbours for help. Locating and delivering resources and manpower quickly and efficiently during a declared emergency is at the heart of a proposed Member Municipality Mutual Assistance Agreement for the United Counties of Leeds & Grenville (UCLG). “This is a formalization of something that would happen anyway in an emergency,” explained Kevin Spencer, the Counties’ community emergency management coordinator, who presented the proposal to North Grenville council at last Tuesday’s Committee of the Whole meeting.

The partnership – which is modeled on the current Fire Mutual Aid system, which coordinates fire services between the municipalities – would help the region be “more resilient” during an emergency, as each municipality would be ready to react beyond its usual “scope of response,” Spencer added. The proposed agreement would coordinate public works equipment and employees, shelter services, Red Cross, and planning support. Improved information management would help the affected area keep track of its citizens and identify any missing persons, while governmental support services would ensure that the local government could function from an off-site location should the municipal office be rendered unusable. The Counties are also developing a master inventory of each municipality’s emergency resources. This database will particularly help locate special items not common to each municipality, such as light-emitting generators. Signing onto the agreement would not automatically compel one municipality to help another, particularly if both have been hit by the same emergency. But if a town could spare the necessary manpower, equipment or services, membership in this agreement would speed the delivery of that assistance. “If we run into trouble, we’ll be able to get help from other places to get back on our feet quicker,” Spencer told the council. “And the sooner you can get back on your feet, the less it’s going to cost.” In times of emergency, labour and equipment costs, such as overtime, would be paid by the municipality receiving the help, not the assisting municipality. The Counties will pay to maintain the inventory database. Spencer is presenting the proposal to all UCLG municipalities. The councils will provide feedback, and he will return with a final draft. The agreement would be reevaluated every three years. The plan was favourably received by the North Grenville council. “If it works as well as our mutual aid system does for the fire, it’ll be a great tool to have in the toolbox,” remarked North Grenville Fire Chief Tim Bond after the presentation.

The North Grenville Photography Club officially opened its sophomore exhibit, 2 for 2, at the branch restaurant in Kemptville last Wednesday. The exhibit, featuring approximately 40 photographs taken by local artists, will be on display at the restaurant until April 3. President Heather Hughes founded the club two years ago with a fellow photography enthusiast because at the time there was no place for shutterbugs to get together outside of Ottawa. The first meeting drew 45 people, and numbers have held steady since. Today, the club includes a few seasoned professionals and many enthusiastic amateurs. The inaugural exhibit in September was a popular fixture at the branch, and Hughes is glad to have the chance to again share their work with the public. “It gives some validity to what you’re doing,” she said, proudly looking at the many diverse photographs lining the wall. “When other people look at (a photo) and say, ‘That’s really nice,’ (you think), maybe I’m not so bad after all.” Hughes and several other photographers sold a few of their works during their previous exhibit, though she modestly says, “I still don’t really call myself a photographer. I just love taking pictures.” Anda Rungis, one of the exhibit curators, likes taking photos of musicians and hanging the prints on what she calls the “groupie wall” in her house. “It’s the way I remember the concerts I’ve been to,” she explained. Rungis’ photo of Ottawa rocker Sue Foley in concert at the Municipal Centre is part of 2 for 2. She strikingly edited the picture to bring out Foley’s red guitar. The editing process “depends on emotion – what I want to convey,” Rungis mused. “I’m not a purist by any means. I’ll certainly edit things the way I want to. That’s the fun part.” Wednesday’s launch drew several dozen people, who chatted with the photographers about the techniques they used, and how they captured interesting perspectives. One eye-catching photo by Jancy Watkins, A Nose for Comfort, is an amusing closeup of a dog’s nose. The club participates in various workshops, tutorials and outings throughout the year.

They should know better If one is to believe the current wave of political advertising, everything about our current political environment shouts good governance. However, on closer inspection, the main ingredient missing from these ads is a sense of shame. At the highest level of our three-tier government system, we have politicians ignoring procedure and blatantly lying about their actions. Apparently there is no shame at all in lying to your fellow MPs, and to the public. While all that is going on, the rest of us have no problem trying to do what is right on a daily basis. At the provincial level, the Hydro One debt retirement plan, which seems to have been with us since the dawn of time, should have by now been paid in full. For some undisclosed reason, the debt retirement plan will continue. The debt originated with massive hydro mismanagement years ago and it seems there is no shame in that either. The latest federal government scandal involves asking for money from “ethnic” ridings in a effort to entice votes from these same ridings for the Conservative party. Evidently there is no shame in using taxpayers’ money and the office of a cabinet minister to further this end. The price of food has gone up seven per cent

on average and the price of gas, for an oil-producing nation, has reached an outrageous level. At the same time, the former ethics commissioner fails at her job, and as a reward receives a severance package worth more than $400,000. There is nothing quite like having a job in these difficult times, not doing it properly, and then getting handsomely paid for your lack of competence. I am sure the area food banks as well as the Salvation Army and all other organizations that exist to help others could use this kind of revenue. Apparently there is no shame in accepting a severance package for ineptitude. Last Saturday night, at the North Grenville Municipal Centre, supporters of the Kemptville District Hospital enjoyed a nice evening of fundraising, food and entertainment. All the people at the event, and many more who did not attend, have given their time, energy and money to their community hospital. The outpouring of generosity guarantees a great hospital for all of us and ensures a healthy future for North Grenville. Thankfully, in this part of the world, public service is noble, sincere, and without guile. The people we have elected to protect the interests of all Canadians should be ashamed.


Perfectionism isn’t an asset My neighbour stopped by unannounced the other day. I opened the door. Wide. It was minus 26 degrees with the wind chill. Otherwise, I would have left him on the porch. Fact is, I had two boys home sick from school and I was on multiple deadlines. I was unshowered in athletic gear; the boys were watching an obviously age-inappropriate film unsupervised at full volume on TV; a couch-bed was in a lump on the floor; and the cupboard under the TV had apparently vomited. My neighbour, gentleman that he is, appeared not to notice. “Nice that you can keep them home,” he said. “Most people would ship them off to school, regardless.” Yeah, well, I wish they weren’t here. Meanwhile, why are you here? Because if it were up to me, neighbours would only ever stop by half an hour before a planned party. Then they would definitely only see my house after I had been projecting my unattainable perfectionism on spouse and children for two-and-a-half days. In other words, everything would be clean, and the family would be threatened into submission. The kitchen would look like it had never been used, and I wouldn’t have to explain away the chaos that actually lives

BRYNNA LESLIE Capital Muse here. The reality is chaos does live here. I have two boys under the age of six. They get a kick out of words like fesse and butt, vomit and booger. They have 5,000 pieces of Lego. They wear identical school uniforms, but accumulate t-shirts from theme parks. They take karate, but choose to wrestle. And please don’t tell anyone, but they have a collection of toilet paper rolls and wine bottle corks (I swear they’re not mine) in the bottom drawer in the kitchen “for crafts.” I cannot compete against that. But even if I could, should I? I want my life to seem more perfect. I read – and write – about kitchens with granite countertops and family vacations that don’t have bathroom mishaps. Dr. Jim – that’s the pseudonym for my therapist – says they don’t really exist.

(Well, the kitchens do because I’ve seen pictures). But I think Dr. J was getting at something else. “What are you afraid of ?” he asked. “What do you fear when your neighbour comes into your living room and sees that it’s lived in?” Lived in? Okay, if that’s how Dr. J wants to describe vomiting cupboards, I’m totally cool with that. But actually, I’m not cool with “lived in” at all. I’m afraid that people are going to think I never clean my house, even though I’m home 24/7. I’m afraid they’re going to think I’m a slob. I’m afraid they will realize I’m not superhuman. Most of all, I’m afraid they’ll realize I’m human. “I’m not good enough,” I tell Dr. J. “What?” “That’s what they’ll say when they see the boots strewn across the front entrance and the snack plates on the coffee table, that I’m not good enough.” “Not good enough for what?” “Not good enough to live in the neighbourhood; not good enough to be a friend; not good enough. Period.” Dr. J seems troubled. But why? Obviously we live in a society where failure is anything but a learning experience. Good enough means thin enough, smart enough, tidy enough, balanced enough.

Every direction we turn there’s someone ready to judge and penalize our shortcomings. Or are they? I have a perfectionist complex. But I’ve recently been put in my place. Because we have new next door neighbours. And the first time they came to our house there was a sink full of dishes and a stench of unchanged cat litter in the air. It was precedent-setting and it was a good precedent to set. Because now? If the house is clean and the cat’s out of sight, they figure we’ve improved. And if not? Well, dirty cat box is the new norm. Not only have they accepted that, they’ve invited us for dinner.

Where is the legislation? The government of the day, through the Minister of Veterans Affairs has made several announcements and promises on Bill C-55 (New Veterans Charter), which has received first reading in the House of Commons but has not progressed to the Committee level. Similar announcements and promises have been made on Bill-480 by the Minister of Finance (Removal of GST from poppies and wreath

purchases) for which no legislation has yet been tabled. As your readers know, the tabling and passage of these bills with Royal Assent will not be possible should the government decide to call an election. The Royal Canadian Legion has written to both ministers on the matters of legislative procedure and has received assurances that these matters are being looked into.

These bills, however, may die on the order paper if an election is called and leave Canada’s disabled veterans, their families and The Royal Canadian Legion without the legislation they all need. The Royal Canadian Legion writes this letter because we care.

March is fraud prevention month STAFF

March is fraud prevention month and the Grenville County OPP has some tips to help avoid credit and debit card fraud, identity theft, telemarketing fraud, home renovation fraud and phoney bank manager fraud. Fraudsters will utilize the telephone and/or the computer or come to your door. They will be pleasant, but can become quite pushy and intimidating. Don’t be afraid to question them, if they are evasive in their response be suspicious. Ask them for a contact number or reference number and tell them that

you will do your own research. If they become pushy tell them you are calling the police. If it sounds too good to be true – it is. Don’t give out bank or credit card information over the phone unless you have initiated the contact or you know who you are dealing with. Pay attention to your billing cycles. Do not carry your SIN card with you. Minimize the identification information and the number of cards on your person. Never pay any money for any prize you have won. Shield your PIN with your hands when using it.

High-speed train zips into Kemptville J.P. ANTONACCI

When the world’s leading train maker needs to paint a newly designed bullet train, where does it turn? To Kemptville, of course. The 10,000 pound skeleton of Bombardier’s newest high-speed train lurched into the Kemptville Truck Centre on Thursday for a custom paint job. At 53-feet long and 12 feet high, the head car is the biggest vehicle the centre has ever painted, said body shop manager Archie Hill. The aluminum behemoth arrived on an extended flatbed from Kingston, and will spend a few weeks at the Van Buren St. shop. The rail car will be cleaned, sanded, and cleaned again by four technicians, before three painters apply a gleaming new coat. The train’s nose cone will arrive separately, and the process will be repeated. Specialized paint and primer are be-

ing shipped in from Bombardier, and the painters must adhere to thickness guidelines within a fraction of a millimeter. Hill estimates Truck Centre staff will devote about 150 hours to the project. The centre was able to bid on this “significant” contract thanks to an introduction from a connection at Bombardier, Hill said. Thanks to a competitive quote and a strong reputation throughout the province and beyond, the Kemptville company got the job. “Not very many shops have a (paint) booth big enough for something this size,” Hill added. The head car arrived intact, minus the nose cone, as it will become part of the prototype for Bombardier’s new design. The prototype will be tested in Kingston and shipped around the world as the showpiece of the new electronic train, which is emissions free and can hit top speeds of 300 km/h. The first completed trains are already destined for Sao Paolo, Brazil.

J.P Antonacci Photo/Advance Staff

A workman removes the cover off of the chassis of the train. If Bombardier is pleased with the paint job on the head car, Kemptville Truck Centre will bid to paint the remaining cars of the prototype train, plus the actual trains that will be used in monorails around the world. Those additional trains would arrive dismantled, and it would be an easier mat-

ter to paint the panels, Hill explained. The Truck Centre, already well known internationally for its painting expertise, would receive a further boost in prestige from this contract. “You have to be a good painter to put paint on a train and make it stay. So people are going to know it,” said Hill.

New principal for Community Christian School JOSEPH MORIN

The Community Christian School in Metcalfe is saying goodbye to a good friend. Principal Gayle Freeburn is retiring. Freeburn served as the school’s principal for the past decade and enjoyed every minute of her time there. “I absolutely love it,” Freeburn said. Freeburn, a longtime Osgoode resident, has been with the school for 27 years. Her first 17 years were as a teacher. She was hired in 1984 and has taught all of the grades at the school. When the opportunity came up in 2001 to take on the role of principal, she was a bit nervous about it. “I did not want the job initially,” she remembers. “I loved being in the classroom with the students and didn’t think I would enjoy being a principal.” Of the many skills Freeburn has, administrative ones, as well as teaching, had always been front and centre. She enjoyed taking up the challenge of running the school.

From left: Gayle Freeburn, retiring principal at Community Christian School, welcomes newly hired principal Rick Dykstra. On the right is Dave Wyngaarden, chairman of the school’s board of directors. The principal has plans for her retirement. “I want to be more involved in my community and in my church,” she said. Freeburn believes that working with the students at the school has kept her young.

“There is a great connection between staff and the students,” she explained. “I will miss everyone. I love my job. All I have ever wanted to be was a teacher.” New principal Rick Dykstra is due to take over on August 1.

Selecting a new person for the job was not easy for the school’s board of directors and the parents at the inter-denominational school. “None of our other teachers felt called to apply for the job,” said Dave Wyngaarden, a Met-

calfe resident who chairs the school’s board of directors. The board then realized they would have to look outside the school for a replacement. “We weren’t just looking for someone with teaching credentials ands management skills,” Wyngaarden explained. “We were looking for someone with a strong Christian faith who could lead our staff and students spiritually, and someone who has a passion for educating children from a Biblical perspective.” The board feels they have made a good choice in Dykstra. The incoming principal’s background in Christian teaching goes back 25 years. He taught for 15 years at Beacon Christian High School in St. Catherines. Later, he served for seven years at King’s Christian Collegiate in Oakville as a teacher and as vice-principal. For the past three years, he has served as the principal of the Dundas Calvin Christian School. “I value treating people with respect and work intentionally at building respect among students, staff and the community,” Dykstra said.

Vernon library will soon be barrier free By the end of the month, the Vernon branch of the Ottawa Public Library will be completely accessible to all users, thanks to a new accessibility ramp partly funded by the federal Infrastructure Stimulus Fund. Work on the ramp began in January and is expected to be completed by March 31. The $150,000 price tag is being evenly split between the federal, provincial and municipal governments. “(The ramp) is going to make a remarkable difference in the use of that branch immediately and in years to come,” said Osgoode Ward 20 councillor Doug Thompson, who sits on the library board and called the fact that the library would now be accessible to all “very heartening.” Several projects in the city

of Ottawa that used infrastructure stimulus fund money were completed under budget, and the federal government subsequently considered additional applications for Ottawa projects that fit the original funding criteria, Thompson explained. The library board successfully applied to use some of the remaining funds to make the Vernon branch accessible to seniors, parents with strollers, and people with mobility issues. Pierre Poilievre, Conservative MP for Nepean-Carleton, praised the government’s Economic Action Plan during the official funding announcement at the library on Feb. 24, alongside Thompson, federal minister Jason Kenney, and Jim Bennett, vice chair of the Ottawa Public Library. “These upgrades to the Vernon Library have created local jobs and economic growth, and will improve the lives of resi-

dents in the area so that Canadian families continue to proper for years to come,” Poilievre said. Vernon’s library is Ottawa’s southernmost branch, and one of the city’s busiest relative to its size. More than 97,000 books were borrowed from Osgoode Ward’s four libraries last year, and out of Ottawa’s 33 total branches, Vernon boasted the third highest percentage increase of materials borrowed in the last quarter of 2010. “Per capita, that’s a huge number, and I think it shows that libraries are being used quite readily,” Thompson said. The front entrance of the 1882 building – originally a one-room schoolhouse – will look a bit different after the renovation. The new ramp will be illuminated by installed lighting, and will extend from the sidewalk up to the redone veranda.

OPP Operation Heat rewards youth STAFF If you see a group of teenagers pulled over by the OPP this winter, don’t be alarmed – they might have been caught committing a good deed. To recognize local youth who go out of their way to help others, the OPP and Mac’s convenience stores are cosponsoring Operation Heat. When officers notice young people doing a random act of kindness, they can issue a “ticket,” which is actually a coupon good for a free hot chocolate at all participating Mac’s stores in

Ontario throughout the winter. The good deeds can be as simple as picking up litter or crossing the street at the intersection. It’s a little reward for good citizenship that fosters positive relationships between the police and the youth in their patrol areas. “The OPP is pleased to once again participate in an initiative that recognizes youth for responsible and caring behaviour. “Partnering with local business and engaging our youth in a positive manner builds partnerships that make our communities stronger,” said the OPP in a statement.

Educator Albert Barr now a hall of famer

Albert Barr left a rich academic legacy at the University of Guelph Kemptville Campus.


Albert M. Barr, former principal of the Kemptville Agricultural School, now known as the Kemptville Campus of the University of Guelph, has been elected to the Ontario Agricultural Hall of Fame. Robert Aumell and John Joynt, director of the Ottawa Valley Seed Growers Association (OVSGA), nominated Barr, who is remembered as a consummate educator and researcher.

“Albert Barr left a legacy for Ontario agriculture that included hundreds of well-educated rural youth, and research and extension work that led the way to great advances in agricultural productivity in Ontario,” the Hall of Fame stated in a press release. Jim Arbuckle, the president of the OVSGA, along with director Garnet Ralph – himself a member of the Hall of Fame – wrote letters supporting Barr’s candidacy, and the association joined with Kemptville College Alumni in covering the $750 nomination fee. Barr, who died in 1979, will be inducted into the Hall of Fame this June during a ceremony in Milton. At a recent meeting, OVSGA allocated $5,000 in support of the Queen of the Furrow banquet to be held in Vankleek Hill on September 22 as part of the 2011 International Plowing Match set for PrescottRussell. The association is also busy preparing for this year’s Ottawa Valley Farm Show, to be held for the last time at Lansdowne Park in Ottawa, on March 15-17. After half a century at Lansdowne, the show is slated to move to the new Capital Exhibition Centre in time for its 85th anniversary in 2012.

Kemptville Advance - MARCH 10, 2011


“Dad, what’s sodium bicker-bonnet?” DON MERCER Special to the Advance

I have always been a compulsive food ingredient line reader. Perhaps it’s my food background, or maybe I just don’t get out enough. Either way, they are interesting, informative, and sometimes provide a surprise or two. This habit seems to have been passed down to our children, which is not necessarily a bad thing. I remember the older of our two daughters who had just learned to read studying the ingredients on the side of a box. With a rather puzzled look on her face, she asked in a matterof-fact manner, “Dad, what’s sodium bicker-bonnet?” I must confess that I had never encountered that particular ingredient. Anxiously checking it out, I had to hold back my laughter as her finger pointed to the words “sodium bicarbonate.” Now, more than twenty years later, I still find myself smiling whenever I encounter this ingredient, or while teaching a class where we are discussing the chemical functions of good-old baking soda. Ingredient lines can tell you a

D. Mercer

The humble marshmallow has its own complicated structure. lot about the product. They are quite important and are strictly regulated. First, ingredients are listed in the order of their percentage by weight in the product. If you see a lot of sugars near the top of the list, this may be a message to you. Sometimes the sugars are listed by their proper names like sucrose, glucose, and fructose. Perhaps you may see invert sugar, which is simply a

mixture of fructose and glucose obtained by breaking down sucrose into its two component parts to enhance its sweetness. Ingredient lines may also alert us to substances to which we may have some degree of sensitivity. Potential allergens, such as tartrazine (a colouring agent) or sulphites (a preservative), are listed, often in bold type, to draw attention to them. You may also notice brackets after a particular ingredient to indicate what is present in it. This may be the case with chocolate chips where the components of the chocolate are given in parentheses. There are some ingredients which have rather peculiar names. One of my personal favourites is “tetrasodium pyrophosphate.” Spotted on a bag of marshmallows, it sent me scrambling to find out what strange tasks it might actually perform. It was obvious that there were four sodiums in the molecule, and that there was a phosphate group present. What was really mysterious was the “pyro” part of the name. Was this the ingredient that caused my marshmallows to burst into flame while roast-

ing them over a campfire? Where did this fiery name originate, and what did it mean? All of the other things listed made sense, but this one stood out like the proverbial sore thumb. The online Health Canada Food Additive Dictionary indicated that tetrasodium pyrophosphate is a very busy additive. It functions as an emulsifier that helps disperse tiny droplets of oil in water, or droplets of water in oil, so that they do not separate. It can be used to adjust the pH of a food to give it the proper acidity for developing the correct flavour and texture. Among several other functions, it can also act as a plasticizing agent in gums, and work as a foaming agent. I was unsuccessful at finding the origin of the name “pyrophosphate”, but then again, I didn’t really look very hard. To me, even though I know better, the real function of tetrasodium pyrophosphate is as an initiator for combustion when roasting marshmallows – even if it isn’t listed as such on the Health Canada website. Don Mercer is associate professor of food science at Kemptville Campus University of Guelph.

BRIAN WILSON Special to the Advance

The 73’s wrapped up their season with two games this past week. Tuesday, Mar. 1 had Kemptville at the Carleton Place Arena to take on the Canadians. With playoff positioning already determined, this was a game played for pride. Alex Brenton scored the only goal of the first period. The goal was his 32nd of the season and was assisted by Duhn and Armstrong. In the second, Kemptville took control of the game. Andrew Upshall notched his third of the season from Armstrong and Hutton. Then Josh Pitt added his twelfth of the year with assists from Hough and Cameron. Before the end of the period, Keegan Rowe scored his fourth of the campaign, unassisted. The third period saw Carleton Place really pressing and they were able to break the shutout that affiliated goalie, Brad Fraser, had going. Holding a 4-1 lead, the 73’s were not ready to call it a night yet. Another call up, Brock Jessop, extended Kemptville’s

lead to 5-1. The goal was set up by Cameron and Hough again. Then Brock Plouffe, from Brenton and Hough, added his 18th of the year.

The Canadians were able to add one more goal late in the period. Kemptville went home with a 6-2 victory. Brad Fraser, Alex Brenton and Pat Cameron were named the three stars. For the last game of the season, Kemptville traveled to the Earl Armstrong Arena to battle the Gloucester Rangers. It turned out that there wasn’t a battle at all. The Rangers scored three times before Kemptville got on the board at the 8:27 mark of the second period. Josh Pitt scored his thirteenth of the year from Hutton and Lesway. That goal was the last goal of the season for the 73’s. Gloucester went on to score three more times and defeated Kemptville 6-1.

Kemptville Advance - MARCH 10, 2011

73’s end season gear up for 2012



Up next for the 73’s is the spring evaluation camp. The camp will be held Friday, April 8 to Sunday, April 10, at the North Grenville Municipal Centre. The Kemptville 73’s invite all prospect players (ODHA) and free agent players born between 1991 and 1994 to this camp. At the conclusion of the camp, each player will be advised of their status with the 73’s for next season, which could be an invitation to the main camp in July. With the CCHL playoffs set to start the week of Mar. 8, the match-ups are all set. The first-place Pembroke Lumber Kings will take on the Smiths Falls Bears sitting in the eighth spot. The Cornwall Colts, who are in second place, will tackle the Kanata Stallions, who are in seventh. The Brockville Braves, in third, challenge the Nepean Raiders, who are in the sixth spot. The Gloucester Rangers in fourth place will battle the Carleton Place Canadians in fifth. There is still an opportunity to catch some exciting Junior A playoff hockey but you will have to travel out of Kemptville to see it.

Andrew Scott voted coach of the year JOSEPH MORIN

John Carter Photo

The EOJHL held its all-star games in Arnprior last Saturday, followed by a league awards banquet. The coach of the Metcalfe Jets coach was named coach of the year. Andrew Scott of the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League Metcalfe Jets received the Valley Division’s top coach award from Metro-Valley Conference president Ron McRostie. winning tradition,” he said. Many of the players are from the Osgoode and Metcalfe area, which keeps the team connected to its community. The latest debate over the game that the team won on the ice but lost amid apparent confusion over league

rules, has been difficult for the younger players to deal with. “Everything has to go forward in life,” said Scott. He is always honest with his players. “It was a hard one to swallow but you have to move forward.”



The Metcalfe Jets claimed the fourth playoff spot in the Metro Valley Division but fell short of moving on in the 2011 playoffs. Jets coach Andrew Scott had his hands full bringing his young team through their first round. There has already been controversy surrounding the series, with Metcalfe having to hand back a hard fought victory to the Beavers after a fightfilled game. A makeup game was scheduled but the Jets lost it. While the Jets tried to stay focused on what they had to do to stay in the series with the Beavers, they can take some comfort in the fact

that their coach has been selected as the league’s Coach of the Year. “I want to thank the general managers who voted for me,” said Scott. The Jets coach has been involved in hockey for most of his life, including playing for minor teams, as hundreds of other young hockey players in the area did growing up. He began playing for the Edwardsburgh Minor Hockey League when he was young. Years later, he signed on as a trainer with South Grenville. When not working on his business, Andrew Scott Carpentry, he was working with hockey players. His own experiences with hockey were good ones. “I had some really good coaches,” he remembers. Eventually he found himself coaching with the Jets. This season is his first one coaching the team, though he was with them last season as a co-coach. Having the support of Jets management is key to Scott’s success. “I have two really two great assistant coaches,” in Andy Klaassen and Brett Holmes, he said. “You have to build your team with support from everyone,” he said. “You have to be willing to take advice.” Scott says that his job is a little easier because of the great players he has and the community support the Metcalfe Jets enjoy. “The community has high expectations for the team. They have a

In loving memory of our son, brother and uncle, Tony Donald, whom God took to be his Angel, 18 years ago tonight, March 10, 1993. We are thinking of you today “TONY”, But that is nothing new; We thought about you yesterday, And the day before that too. We will think of you tomorrow, And each day as we come and go; We will think of you forever, We love and miss you so. Your end came fast and sudden, No time to say goodbye; You were gone before we knew it, And only God knows why. Dear God, take him this message, To heaven up above; Tell him how much we miss him, And give him all our “love”. Each time we see your picture, You seem to smile and say; Don’t cry, I’m only sleeping, We will meet again someday.
