Fire Chief Tim Bond to retire May 31



One of North Grenville’s longest-serving public figures is hanging up his helmet. After four decades battling fires and promoting fire safety, Fire Chief Tim Bond announced his retirement at the Monday, March 14, North Grenville council meeting. Bond will retire as head of the Kemptville Fire Department on May 31. The chief ’s career started in 1972, working alongside his father, Bill, a captain who himself enjoyed 36 years in the department. This year, the younger Bond celebrated his silver anniversary as fire chief. The Bond legacy continues with Tim’s son Charlie, a firefighter in Ottawa. The lifelong Kemptvillian built a department that rivals any urban outfit. Bond reported that while fighting a large house fire on Garrison Road earlier this month, his tankers poured 81,000 gallons of water on the house in roughly 90 minutes, at a rate of 900 gallons per min-

ute. During the eight hour battle, the pumpers doused the flames with 100,000 gallons of water. “There are cities that can’t beat that,” Bond said proudly. “Chief, there aren’t many people who could say that they’ve committed so many years to one career, and you should be proud of that,” Coun. Barb Tobin told Bond after his announcement. “It’s a lot of hours, and a lot of odd hours that people aren’t used to, and you put them in well.” Coun. Terry Butler and Deputy Mayor Ken Finnerty also offered their congratulations, as did Coun. Tim Sutton in a statement. “Thank you, chief, for your many years of dedication,” added Mayor David Gordon. He may soon relinquish the chief ’s hat shortly after his 60th birthday in May, but Bond told councillors his life as a retired father and grandfather will be anything but tranquil. “From what I understand from talking to my dear wife, who has supported me over many years, she’s got me doing projects for the next six months,” he said, smiling.

SPENCERVILLE TAKES A VACATION 2011 The Spencerville Skating Club held their 2011 end of season performance at the Spencerville Community Centre on Saturday, March 19. There were two performances throughout the day. The entire skating club was involved in the show, which used as its theme the idea of taking a vacation. One routine was called Disney Land and featured the Tot Skaters. The troupe was dressed up as Disney characters Mickey and Minnie Mouse. These two had a great time during their performance.

STAFF A sure sign of spring, daffodils are amongst the first flowers to emerge from the recently defrosted ground. The arrival of spring marks the beginning of the Canadian Cancer Society’s annual Daffodil Month fundraising campaign. “This April, we are stepping up the fight by introducing a new daffodil pin as part of our annual campaign. We are asking all Ontarians to unite behind those living with cancer by making a donation and wearing the iconic yellow daffodil,” said Amanda Gifford, fundraising coordinator for the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) for Lanark, Leeds and Grenville. Every April volunteers work together to raise funds for CCS by selling daffodils and conducting a door-to-door campaign. This year, the society has introduced a new daffodil pin as part of its annual campaign. By making a donation and wearing the yellow daffodil pin, you are uniting behind those living with cancer. The money raised during Daffodil Month helps to inform, support and improve the lives of Canadians living with cancer. For more information about Daffodil Month, where to get a daffodil pin or to volunteer, please visit or call your local Canadian Cancer Society office at 613-267-1058 or 1-800-367-2913.

Rental rates see modest increase

Super business location beside South Real Estate Ltd. Brokerage Gower Park Ballfields and Playground. 15 year old surplus municipal building 19 Reuben Cres., will have wide range of permitted Kemptville uses. Approx.2600 sqft. $219,900. 258-0124 456270-12-11 MLS # 783617

North Grenville has set its facility rental rates for next year, and rates for public skating sessions for youth and adults will stay steady at two and three dollars, respectively. However, every other rental rate will go up, if only a little. Modest rate increases of between 2.5 to 4.5 per cent to rent the arena, theatre, courthouse, and other municipally owned properties were approved by North Grenville council at last Monday’s meeting. The increases are in line with previous years, said Darren Patmore, North Grenville’s Director of Park, Recreation and Culture. The new rates account for cost of living increases, and will generate modest revenue for the municipality. Renting the soccer fields and ball diamonds for tournaments will cost between $7-10 more per day, depending on the age of the participants. Prime time adult ice time goes up five dollars to $172 per hour, while the youth prime time hourly rate jumps four dollars to $134. The new rates will take effect Sept. 1.


Hospital values examined at WDMH JOSEPH MORIN

up into different topics.

The Winchester District Memorial Hospital is well on its way to establishing a set of values its patients can expect to share. The provincial government has asked all hospitals, through the Excellent Care for All Act, to come up with a set of values by June 2011. WDMH has been asking residents to suggest values they would like to see in place for their hospital. Called the Patient Declaration of Values, the government request is designed to put patients first and ensure patient-centered care. The hospital has come up with several draft statement for residents to think about and comment on. Retiring hospital CEO Trudy Reid said, “We had a very old set of values and we wanted to start off right.” The draft set of values are divided

Kemptville Advance - MARCH 24, 2011


Youth centre worth your time Did you happen to notice groups of excited young people with determined looks on their faces racing around Kemptville last Thursday? They were from the Kemptville Youth Centre (KYC), and they were competing in a March Break amazing race that had them playing games and completing challenges all over town. Getting dozens of kids and teenagers involved in fun outdoor activities is but one example of the positive impact the youth centre has on the community. And it’s all thanks to volunteers. The youth centre employs three staff members, but much of the legwork – planning and running events, supervising after school programs, and the like – is done by a dedicated team of volunteers who give of their time to make life a little more interesting for local youth. These volunteers are co-op students, businesspeople, and community leaders. They do indispensable work. But they need help. The youth centre has more programs than it has volunteers to run them. KYC may be renovating its new office with financial support from the municipality and local businesses and service groups, but the centre lacks the stable

funding needed to hire more employees. The current staff can’t be everywhere, and the kids need to be supervised for the centre to be open. The call is out for new volunteers who’ve perhaps long wanted to help, but haven’t yet found their niche. KYC welcomes anyone who enjoys working with youth and has a skill they would like to share, from cooking or resumebuilding to music or drama. Adults looking for an easy way to keep fit can lead the popular Tuesday night sports program. Volunteering can also be as simple as hanging out at the youth centre for an hour or two, once a week. KYC trains volunteers and adapts the centre’s schedule to theirs. It doesn’t take much time to help others, and as a bonus, getting involved provides a new perspective on “kids today.” North Grenville is known as a kind, welcoming place with few social problems. Our young people are an integral part of that reality, and engaging them positively, as KYC does, is a crucial investment in our future. Remember the pop bottle slogan: no deposit, no return. If you believe in building community, consider volunteering. It just might enrich your life too.


Yes, it’s the 21st century – so what? The weakest of all arguments is that we’re in the 21st century. You hear it all the time. Somebody makes a proposal. Somebody else opposes. Then the supporters say to the opponents: “Don’t you know it’s the 21st century?” Those of us who grew up in the 20th century remember the argument. It’s just been updated a bit. There are provincial government proposals to loosen liquor laws at outdoor events. The police say they’re worried. The police are accused of not knowing it’s the 21st century. The police have a feeling that drunken louts in the new century will closely resemble drunken louts in the previous one. There is a proposal to put up some giant flashing billboard by the new convention centre, shining video and maybe, just maybe, advertising down on Rideau Canal skaters, tourists and distracted motorists. “It’s the 21st century,” the proponents say, when others ask why we need to complicate the natural beauty of that part of the city with humongous flashing pixels. The canal, of course, was built in the 19th century, before such electronic miracles were possible. Skating on the canal was brought to us in the 20th cen-

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town tury by a man, NCC chairman Douglas Fullerton, who thought that the skating alone provided all the entertainment people would need. He was even critical of the early, non-electronic version of Winterlude, for putting entertainment on the ice to interfere with the skaters. He would not want to be skating in the 21st century with that thing beaming pictures down on his head. In the 21st century that we all recognize it is possible to do all sorts of things that were not possible in the 20th. This does not, however, mean that we have to do them. Take Twitter, for example. With Twitter, you can tell the entire world, more or less, what you think in 140 characters or less. On the day the great editor and writer Jim Travers died, tributes began appearing on Twitter, little notes saying

how much Travers was appreciated, how much he would be missed. It was kind of a tribal ritual, with virtually everyone on Parliament Hill and many people beyond it, adding their abbreviated voices. Travers, who loved to laugh, would have laughed. Here was this technological miracle and people, one after the other, were using it to write five or 10 words saying, in effect, “I’m sad too.” It’s not that they weren’t sincere, it’s that this piece of 21st century technology trivialized their sincerity. A few days later, a memorial gathering was held at the Ottawa Conference Centre – a railway station for much of the 20th century. Many of the same people came and many others, 500 in all, and they behaved in an old-technology way. They talked and they listened and they laughed and they cried and they hugged each other. There was more power and emotion in that gathering than in a billion tweets. The 21st century gives us the choice. We can tweet or we can show up. Showing up still works best. In Ottawa, the second-weakest of reasons for doing something is that the city’s image needs changing. People think Ottawa is dowdy, we are told by proponents of giant electronic bill-

boards. We need to show some more flash. Well, do we really? What’s dowdy about Ottawa? We have, thanks to the NCC, no billboards along the Canal and the parkways. Most people don’t complain about that. Some rather like it. What else don’t we have that other cities do? We have restaurants and nightclubs and festivals and theatres and galleries and shopping centres. We can even put together a bit of a traffic jam. We also have a few things that other cities don’t have, such as a relatively peaceful life and an ease of access to the countryside. Even in the 21st century, why should we be apologizing for that?

In what other country are there four distinct seasons to celebrate and complain about? I love living in Canada. Summer is gorgeous, of course, with its hedonistic heat and its moody storms. Autumn is my favourite season – many people find the waning of the summer sun depressing but I find the cooler weather invigorating and the refracted sunlight beautiful. I’ve seen over forty winters come and go, yet I still have my breath taken away by the beauty of the first fresh blanket of snow, every year. And now, enter Spring. Did you know that green has a smell? The green of springtime certainly does. It’s the scent of new life pushing its way up through the melt, coaxed along by the warm rays of the sun. The tulips and daffodils in the farm-

house flowerbed are just starting to push spears up through the earth. The lilies will perk up next, then the allium, and finally

the big hosta leaves will unfurl. I get the urge to stir things up in springtime – to start a new exercise regime (I mucked out the horse stall and took the dog for a walk all in one afternoon!), cut my hair and try out a new recipe for salsa. This year I’m also looking for work, so there are lots of new beginnings. The Spring Equinox arrived on Sunday, March 20th, at 11:23pm. So did the sign of Aries. Maybe that is why I feel so energized and renewed. My birthday calendar is about to flip over too. Our daylight hours and night time hours are about equal, and everyone seems to be in a better mood than they were a month ago. Spring fever is contagious. I think the Farmer and I have conceded that Misty is not pregnant. Her summer fling with

the Belgian stud, Prince, was just that. A fling. The Farmer measured her belly one day, and it had reduced in size the next week. Her belly isn’t growing – she just has an extra-fluffy coat of winter fur and she bloats when she eats a lot of grain. But she isn’t expecting. We might send our horse to be trained, finally, so we can ride her. That’s what I would like to do, anyway. Otherwise she is just a big pet. Maybe we can get her to help pull some logs out of the bush too. She likes to have a purpose. The ewes have about a month to go before they begin giving birth. The sheep salon will be open for business shortly, so that we can get them all sheared before their due dates. We’re waiting as long as pos-

Rideau River floods Hilly Lane

Water levels rose throughout the watershed last week, but have receded considerably since then. The decline will continue, though locations in the Long Reach between Kars and Kemptville must remain on guard as the flow from upstream continues to pass through the waterway. RCVA cautions everyone, in particular young children, to steer clear of the cold, fast-slowing water.



The annual flooding along the Rideau River has some North Grenville residents living on Hilly Lane complaining about their situation. This spring, the flooding along the southern portion of the Rideau River along River Road (County Road 19) arrived a bit earlier than expected, catching residents by surprise. Homeowner Don Rudman said the flooding was not the biggest issue. He said that the homeowners are used to the flooding around their homes, but having their road cut off by water was the real issue. “The problem is that no one will take responsibility for it,” Rudman said. “Our only hope is for the new mayor to take a look at it. We have been fighting this problem for the past 10 years.” The Rideau Valley Conservation Authority (RVCA) looks after the area’s flooding information and uses historical snow and rainfall patterns to create a forecast. Patrick Larson, RVCA’s senior water resources technician, said that the forecast for this particular section of the Rideau River was off as far as timing went. The forecast was based on the amount of snow that the area had this winter, but the water levels have reached a higher level than the overall conditions had suggested, Larson explained. “The forecast was based on a normal model,” he said. More than 20 residents live yearround along the river at the point where it is currently flooding. Originally, these homes were cottages and, because of the potential for annual flooding, are raised off the ground. The problem now is that a short por-

sible, because we will have to keep the ewes in the barn once they are shorn – otherwise they might catch a chill. When we (gently) tackle them for a shearing we will also give them each a shot of selenium to guard against white-muscle disease in their young. We are getting smart and learning from the previous year’s lessons. I hope the Farmer agrees to let me try my hand at shearing. I will have to wear gloves because I am allergic to the lanolin in the wool, but I think I am strong enough to hold the sheep down. Anyway, you just have to cover the ewe’s head with your leg and she gives up the fight and plays dead. It’s got to be easier than plucking a goose. And less smelly.

Residents who use Hilly Lane to get to their homes along the Rideau River have to wait a few days until spring floodwaters retreat. tion of the kilometer long road from River Road to the homes has flooded and cannot be used. Residents have to leave their cars parked along River Road at the entrance Hilly Lane and walk to their homes. The road is on private property and building it up above flood levels is a project no one wants to take on. Dave Gordon, the mayor of North Grenville, was out looking at the road on the weekend.

“You cannot control Mother Nature,” the mayor concluded. Gordon lives on a floodplain in Kemptville and is always aware of what the nearby waterway is doing. He will be meeting with Hilly Lane homeowners later this week to discuss their situation. He said that if there was an emergency, and residents were trapped because of the flooded road, the municipality would be able to get them out.

North Grenville building boom continues North Grenville saw more housing starts and a significant jump in construction value in 2011, compared to last year. According to a report from the the municipality’s Planning and Development department, there have been 17 new housing starts so far this year – seven in February – compared to 14 by the end of February 2010. The municipality has assessed $84,705 in fees on construction worth nearly $7.3 million so far this year, versus $41,001 worth of fees levied on $3.3 million worth of projects in the first two months of 2010. This large increase is explained by the continued construction at the Colonnade mall, with the new TD Bank alone paying nearly $1 million dollars for fees and a building permit, and the Brookside Condo Units paying more than $3.7 million for the same. Forbes Symon, Director of Planning and Development for North Grenville, called the rise in new housing starts “a very encouraging sign. There have been some discussions that the housing market is slowing down, but we’re not seeing any of that yet.” At a recent Committee of the Whole meeting, Coun. Tim Sutton noted appreciatively that while the national housing market was down in January, North Grenville continued to grow. The municipality’s CAO Andy Brown recommended that council enact a bylaw that would extend the timeframe for North Grenville to complete two ongoing projects supported by the Infrastructure Stimulus Fund. The federal and provincial governments have extended the completion date for all stimulus fund projects to October 31. Both of North Grenville’s stimulus fund projects currently underway are expected to be completed before the new deadline, making this bylaw more of a procedural formality than a necessity. Construction of the new library in Old Town Kemptville should finish by the end of May, save for some exterior landscaping and paving, while the rural road rebuild is slated to wrap up by the end of July.

The Kemptville Youth Centre (KYC) is on a roll. Since moving to its bigger location on Oxford Street last year,

KYC has offered a wide range of programs and events, including a recent dance that raised awareness of teen mental health issues, and a full slate of March Break programming. Drop by the centre after school,

and you’re bound to find a dozen youth playing board games, watching a movie, or socializing with friends. Others might be getting homework help, practicing a musical instrument, or learning about healthy eating. Volunteers are crucial to the youth centre’s success, said Andrew MacLean, KYC’s volunteer and sustainability coordinator. A core group of volunteers keeps the operation going, but lately, the need for volunteers has outpaced available manpower. “We’re reaching out because we really need the help with our evening programs,” MacLean said, mentioning the popular Tuesday sports night and Thursday cooking night as examples. The only prerequisites for volunteers are experience or

interest in working with youth, and willingness to have fun and share one’s talents. The centre trains all volunteers and eases them in gradually by starting them on a quieter night where they can “just hang out with the kids,” MacLean explained. KYC would create new programs based on volunteers’ skills and interests. Past volunteers have led workshops on art, music, and resume writing. Builders and tradespeople are welcome to assist with the ongoing renovation at the new location. On the administrative side, KYC is also looking for additional board members, and professional volunteers such as accountants, lawyers or teachers to offer their expertise. Current volunteers include

co-op students, young adults, and businesspeople. KYC would love to hire more full time staff, said MacLean, but “sustainable funding for youth centres is almost nonexistent.” MacLean has witnessed many volunteers’ lives changed for the better. “An hour here, an hour there, it doesn’t seem like much,” he said. “But you get what you give, and these kids are amazing. You wouldn’t believe the connection you can make with them.” KYC is looking to train volunteers to lead programs in April, though they continuously accept applications.

Jockvale students building well, one toy at a time DANIEL NUGENT-BOWMAN

Students at Jockvale Elementary School are flowing in donations in the hopes that more water in Africa will do the same. Penny Giaccone’s Grade 2 and 3 English classes have been raising money for Ryan’s Well – a non-profit organization committed to bringing clean and safe water to developing countries – since February by bring in books, toys, and other goods for their peers to buy for 50 cents. So far they’ve raised over $700 through their latest drive on March 11. Their goal is to raise $2,000 – the cost of one well – by the end of the school year so another well can be built in Africa. “I like that we’re raising money for Ryan’s Well,” Grade 2 student Liam Daigler said. “I’m also buying lots of books for my family and friends and not for me.

“It’s nice that we don’t get paid because then we get to sell more and donate more to Ryan’s Well.” The initiative was started when Giaccone showed her students a video on Valentine’s Day of Ryan Hreljac, a Kemptville native, who started Ryan’s Well in 1998 when he was six years old. Giaccone said she did so because she figured the idea would work nicely in conjuncture with the school’s Jockvale Cares program. “I wanted them to become a little bit aware of the world,” she said, adding that she’s been able to work the fundraiser into the curriculum very easily. The children got on board right away too. Students made posters and wrote notices for the bulletin board beside the school’s main office and even gave daily announcements over the public ad-

dress system. “When I saw that he was six when he did it, than I could it to,” Grade 3 student Katie Grimes said. Katie and her friend, Jared Berry, both 8, have contributed about $500. Katie has canvassed the neighbourhood with her parents and brother, while Jared has helped organized some of the draws. “I wouldn’t want to be like those people in Africa that have bad water,” Jared said. The results have been impressive to Giaccone. In her 25 years of teaching, no bake sale or raffle has come close to the efforts of this year’s students so far. “I’ve never seen a reaction like that,” she said. Giaccone said they will continue to have more drives in the future and that the Grade 5s would get involved by selling soup. She said to call the school for more information.

Kemptville Youth Centre calls for volunteers

Food Drying: Planning ahead for summer DON MERCER Now that the days are getting longer and the warm days of spring appear to be just around the corner, the thoughts of many people are solidly focused on the joys of the upcoming gardening season. Along with considerations of what to plant, you may also want to begin planning what you are going to do with the fruits and vegetables you harvest. This is the ideal time to consider drying various fruits and vegetables as an added alternative to the more traditional approaches of canning and freezing. Home food dehydrators have become increasingly popular in the past few years and the results can be


Kemptville Advance - MARCH 24, 2011


really quite amazing. There are also many sources of information on the topic, both on-line and in books to help you get started. The basic principle of food dehydration (or “drying”) is quite simple. Food spoilage depends largely on the presence of moisture to support microbial growth or aid in other degradative processes. If the water is removed from a food material, the risk of spoilage is greatly reduced. Moisture can be removed in a variety of ways, but forcedair drying is one of the most common and efficient methods, which is the case with most of today’s commercially available food dehydrators. They heat the incoming air to a desired temperature and blow it across the surface of the food by means of an internal fan. Some dehydrators, like those in the Excalibur® line, have a set of square plastic mesh racks on which the prepared fresh material is placed.

These racks slide into the drying chamber where a continuous stream of warm air removes the water. Other dehydrators, like those by Nesco / American Harvest ®, use stackable trays to hold the produce being dried. Once again, a fan circulates heated air throughout the unit. These are the two most popular brands of dryers available and both do an excellent job. Before deciding which type to purchase, you should visit each company’s website to determine which best suits your needs. Don’t forget about your future needs as well as your initial needs. If you do plan to purchase a home food dehydrator, now is an excellent time to do so. You can familiarize yourself with the dehydration process and gain experience before you begin to harvest your garden crops. Reading the instructions that come with your dehydrator is the most im-

portant step to getting started. Then a few practice runs are in order. Personally, I would recommend starting with something fairly straight-forward like dried apple rings. Apples are available at a reasonable price in most grocery stores throughout the year. Select high quality apples that are reasonably sweet. “Macs” are ideal for this purpose. As the water is removed, the sweetness of the apples intensifies, which makes them an appealing snack. Wash the apples, peel them (if desired), and core them. Then, slice the apples crosswise into rings about a quarter of an inch (5 mm) thick. You may want to dip the slices in lemon juice or a commercially available preparation to prevent them from browning during the drying process (this is entirely optional). Allow the excess lemon juice to drain from the surface of the

rings and place them on the plastic mesh dryer racks. Be careful not to have them overlapping as this will slow the drying process. With the dryer set at 130F (55C), it should take about 6 to 8 hours for the apple rings to dry. It’s a good idea to check the progress of your drying periodically and flip the apple rings about halfway through the process. Once suitably dried, the apple rings will feel dry and leathery, and be spongy and firm. Remove the apple rings from the dehydrator and allow them to cool before placing them in an air-tight container for storage. One common mistake is not fully drying the apples. If too much moisture is left in the apples, they will spoil. There are many reference sources available on the subject of home food drying. It is a good idea to keep accurate records of your drying activities. Label all containers so that you can refer back to the conditions for a particular batch of dried foods. Once you feel comfortable with drying apples, you can move on to other things and enjoy this convenient way to process some of your own fruits and vegetables. Don Mercer is associate professor of food science at University of Guelph Kemptville Campus.

Once a year, Cheryl Brown calls up all of the volunteers who help her serve over 22 services to seniors in the Kemptville area asks them over for tea. On Friday afternoon, March 18, a group of volunteers gathered at the Cheryl J. Brown Centre in Kemptville, home of the Kemptville and District Home Support Inc. Community Support Services (KDHSI), a nonprofit volunteer program. The centre was filled with volunteers who are the crucial ingredient in helping seniors in the area live better. The tea is a perfect time for volunteers to share their experiences and meet each other. “Some of them have never net,” said Brown. As the afternoon wore on, more volunteers arrived. Brown said that she had called each and every one personally and expected at least 100 people for the tea. One volunteer in the kitchen was Helen Kociejowski. She is originally from England and all of her family is there. She volunteers every Thursday at the centre, calling up seniors and planning their menus for the Meals-on-Wheels program. “I volunteer because I want to

in response to what the population wanted. She feels the Winchester hospital board is ahead of its time in anticipating what the future of rural health care will look like. “The board is not just playing it safe and accepting the status quo,” she said. Reid shares all credit for the growth and excellence of the hospital with the board. “The board was very clear about the kind of leadership they wanted,” she said, explaining that it was not a one-person show. “We have a board who worked incredibly hard,” she said, adding, “We had a management team who put in 60 hours a week.” According to Reid, the Winchester community also has to take credit for their support. The community had built the rural hospital back in 1948. The original two-story hospital had 32 beds and in the first year of operation the hospital treated 1,300 patients and delivered 245 babies. By 1960, the first major expansion was completed. The hospital went from 35 to 89 beds at a cost of $700,000. Next, a nurses residence was added. In 1968, a $1.6 million expansion included a 35-bed chronic care unit and the addition of a 16-bed pediatric unit. As the years went by, the hospital continued to grow and in 2002 the Renewing the Vision campaign was launched.

Trudy Reid believes that the key to good planning and appropriate goals is to remember who your client is. She applied those same rules to the healthcare system and the Winchester hospital. She says that all the building blocks are in place at WDMH. She believes that health care solutions are not moments in time, but rather something that is constantly evolving. Everything will work “as long as your board and management leaders keep in front of them that your patients are their focus,” she said. The next phase of building at WDMH includes integrating a system so that no matter where a patient goes, he or she is still connected to the hospital. Another step that will be taken by the hospital is to organize and build their Community Care Access Centre. “The challenge we have had so far is getting the technology to link everyone together,” she said, “In a year’s time it will be here.” A third phase that the rural health care system will have to deal with in the future is all about seniors. “How do we keep seniors out of hospital?” asked Reid. She said that the system wants to keep seniors out of nursing homes until they have to go there. With the WDMH in a healthy position to take on its next phase, Trudy Reid is ready for her own next phase. “I am content,” she said.

The right person in the right place at the right time describes the role that Winchester District memorial Hospital (WDMH) CEO Trudy Reid played in getting the rural hospital where it is today. Trudy Reid will be retiring as CEO of the hospital after 40 years in the health care industry. One of her happiest moments is the success of the WDMH Renewing the Vision campaign that was launched in 2002. In 2009, the new hospital opened its doors. “I am walking away feeling very content,” said Reid. Reid credits her hospital board of directors with having the vision to take the hospital where it is today. WDMH has become a model for other rural hospitals to follow as it has become the most technologically advanced health care facility in rural Ontario. These days the hospital is a hub for cancer care, dialysis and cataract surgery as well as an academic centre. Hospital board chair John Polak stated in a press release, “The Board would like to acknowledge its admiration and gratitude to a leader who has positioned our hospital to meet the needs of our communities and address the health care system’s planning priorities.” Planning and connecting the hospital vision to the real world is what Reid set out to do when she took on the job seven years ago. “When I took the job in Winchester my initial plan was to stay for five years. I had planned to retire when I turned 60. I stayed two extra years,” she said. After all of the work by the board, hospital staff and Reid herself to get the hospital to where it is today, the CEO wanted to make sure she was leaving it in a great position for the future. Reid remembers how she and the board adopted a planning framework. Within that framework were a number of goals and projects. The trick was to take the existing framework and apply it to a rural area. “Rural areas are much different than urban ones. There is little transportation, the population is older and is aging,” explained Reid. What she found in Winchester when she took on the CEO job was that many of the clinical services were already designed

South Nation goes digital with geoportal STAFF Information about the waterways, trails and the natural heritage of the South Nation watershed, will soon be available at the click of a mouse, thanks to South Nation Conservation’s (SNC) new geoportal project. A geoportal is a web-based mapping tool that will help SNC staff and the public locate and learn about the many features of the South Nation watershed, including geographic information about

parks, canoe routes, boat launches, and natural hazards. “The tool will foster greater communication and knowledge-sharing with our partners, residents, and staff,” SNC spokesperson Lisa Migneault explained. “It also provides an opportunity to share personal observations and experiences, which may be added to the maps.” Governments, industry and other conservation authorities currently use geoportals to better share and manage information, including the United Counties

of Prescott and Russell, United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry, and the City of Ottawa. South Nation’s geoportal project is supported by the Raisin-South Nation Source Protection Region and the federal government’s Eastern Ontario Development Program, a $10 million fund that promotes socio-economic development and diversification. SNC has purchased the geoportal software and hired an intern to develop the system.

Jousting and more at medieval festival STAFF Hear ye! Hear ye! King Bartholomew and Queen Elizabeth announce the royal betrothal of their daughter, the Princess Isabelle, to the good Prince Forthwind on Saturday hence, April 2, 1510. Kemptville Campus invites you to join in the wedding festivities at the annual Medieval Festival at the AM Barr Arena on April 2, starting at 10 a.m. The extravagant entertainment planned to coincide with the royal wedding includes medieval falconry, sword fighting, archery, and jousting knights on horseback. The more genteel guests can try their hand at Burgundian

dancing, while little ones can make crafts, play games, and have their hair braided and faces painted. Visitors from near and far can buy or trade goods in the medieval marketplace. Peasants and nobles from throughout the land will converge on the college to see if the princess will really marry the prince – whom rumour has it she is not exceedingly fond of – or if a surprising turn of events is in store. Tickets are $15 adults, $10 students/seniors, and $40 for a family of four. Contact Helen MacGregor at 613-258-8336 x61278 or hmacgreg@kemptvillec.uoguelph. ca.

Special to the Advance

On March 26, Ottawa may face its darkest hour â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in a good way. Earth Hour, the worldwide event that began in Sydney, Australia in 2007, asks individuals to turn off the lights and reduce their energy use for an hour on March 26, from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Last year, an estimated 10 million Canadians participated in the effort to raise awareness about sustainability issues. Earth Hour has become the most successful voluntary event in the history of humankind, as Hydro Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief conservation officer Roger Marsh put it at City Hallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unveiling of an Earth Hour banner on March 7. This is the fourth consecutive year that Ottawa will take part in the event. Hosted by the World Wildlife Federation (WWF), Earth Hour saw a record 128 countries participating in 2010. But there is always room for improvement, said Paulette Roberge, head of communication for Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s WWF bureau. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The main focus this year is to try to get Canadians to think beyond the hour,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a very successful campaign since 2007, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not enough to have people do it for only one hour.â&#x20AC;? Canadians should think of ways to minimize carbon emissions and cut down on energy consumption every day, said Roberge. She also stressed the need to switch to cleaner types of energy, like solar and wind. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Although Earth Hour has been phenomenally successful, the reality is that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re one of the top ten nations contributing to climate change, and we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be,â&#x20AC;? she said. The Green Party will host a can-

North Grenville North Grenville continues to support the environment after Earth Hour with the fourth annual North Grenville Sustainability Fair on Sunday April 17, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Municipal Centre. The free fair, sponsored by community group Sustainable North Grenville, is a chance to learn about the local green businesses, programs, activities and environmental groups that make North Grenville a more environmentally friendly place to live and work. To volunteer or for more information, visit or contact Clare Weissflog at 613258-5721 or Chris Turnbull at 613-258-7359.

dlelit vigil on Parliament Hill on March 26, as they did last year. Over 400 people covered the hill in 2010, and this year there are 500 candles to be given away to participants. At the museum of Science and Technology, Earth Hour enthusiasts are invited to attend a free stargazing night and use

Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest refracting telescope to look at the stars on what will be Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s darkest night of the year. Guests can enjoy coffee and hot chocolate offered by Bridgehead, and learn about the constellations above. Last year, Hydro Ottawa measured a six per cent decrease in electricity use, which is enough

to power 58 homes for a month. The provincial average of energy consumption went down by four per cent, less of a drop than expected because of the colder than normal temperatures. To learn more about Earth Hour and how to participate, visit the WWF website at wwf. ca/earthhour. Users can find

creative ways that fellow Canadians are participating, and download posters and tool kits for the event. Another initiative launched by WWF for Earth Hour this year is called Beyond the Hour, an online forum for people around the world to share ideas to reduce their ecological footprint.

Jenny’s House of Joy takes you back in time JOSEPH MORIN

A good story can always find a home. This April, Kemptville Players Inc. will be telling everyone a great tale as they perform Jenny’s House of Joy, a Norm Foster play. The story takes place as a two-act comedy and is as racy as the title suggests. The story features a brothel, five women with different personalities, a wonderful sense of humour and a serious glimpse at relationships and friendships. The Kemptville Players Inc. have chosen Leslie Hall in Kemptville as the venue for their production, which runs from April 7 to 10. The story is about a house of ill repute located in Baxter Springs, Kansas, around 1870. Baxter Springs is a frontier town where justice is handed out vigilante style. Two ladies, Anita and Frances, along with their madam, Jenny, welcome a woman into their place of business as she tries to escape her abusive husband. The woman, Natalie Chanuse, begins to feel very comfortable in Jenny’s

home. The relationship between Frances and Natalie is tense while Anita and Natalie quickly become friends. The women make their living entertaining cowboys and trail hands. When a local respectable women named Clara discovers that her husband has been frequenting the brothel, the story kicks into high gear. “There are five women with five different personalities. It’s a very funny play but has a serious undertone,” said director George Anderson in a press release. “The audience can expect to laugh,” he added. “They might even get teary-eyed too.” The Players have been rehearsing since December. The Kemptville cast has seen the reaction of the audience in Kanata when the Kanata Theatre performed the play back in February. Anderson mentioned that the play was sold out at the time and the play was well received. Kemptville Players Inc. president Barb McDerby is excited about the performance. “It is great fun,” she said. “It is a good

play and very entertaining.” The Players were able to get a head start for this year’s season. They held their auditions early in the year and have been working on their production ever since. Leslie Hall is the perfect place for this kind of script, McDerby said. “It is a very intimate setting for this kind of play. The atmosphere at Leslie Hall is perfect.” Anderson has enjoyed a busy career in the theatre. He has been involved with Orpheus, the Ottawa Little Theatre, and the National Film Board, as well as making television appearances. He previously directed the Kemptville Players performance of Lets Murder Marsha. Phil Irving Photo “I think the material is what The cast of Jenny’s House of Joy, top row from left: Sophie Hall, Lyn makes Jenny’s stand out,” he O’Callaghan, Lee Gaw.

Tip of the week: Identity Theft….. It Could Happen to You! When an imposter steals your name, your social insurance number, your credit card number, or some other piece of your personal information for their use, without your knowledge – It’s a crime. Someone could use your name and personal information to commit fraud. Tips to Reduce Identity Theft: 1. Before you reveal any personal identifying information, find out how it will be used and if it will be shared. 2. Pay attention to your billing cycles. Follow up with creditors if your bills don’t arrive on time. 3. Guard your mail. Deposit out going mail in post office collections boxes or at your local post office. Promptly remove mail from your mailbox after delivery. Ensure mail is forwarded or re-routed if you move or change your mailing address. 4. Put passwords on your credit card, bank and

phone accounts. Avoid using easily available information like your mother’s maiden name, your birth date, and the last four digits of your SIN or your phone number. 5. Minimize the identification information and number of cards you carry. 6. Do not give out personal information on the phone, through the mail or over the internet unless you have initiated the contact or know who you are dealing with. 7. Keep items with personal information in a safe place. An identity thief will pick through your garbage o r recycling bins. Be sure to tear or shred receipts, copies or credit applications, insurance forms, physician statements and credit offers you get in the mail. 8. Give your SIN only when absolutely necessary. Ask to use other types of identifiers when possible. 9. Don’t carry your SIN card; leave it in a secure place.

How do I know if my identity has been stolen? 1. Bills and statements don’t arrive when they are supposed to - they may have been stolen from the mailbox or someone has changed the mailing address. 2. You receive calls from collection agencies or creditors for an account you don’t have or that is up to date. Someone may have opened anew account in your name, or added charges to an account without your knowledge or permission. 3. Financial account statements show withdrawals or transfers you didn’t make. 4. A creditor calls to say you’ve been approved or denied credit that you haven’t applied for, or you get credit card statements for accounts you don’t have. 5. You apply for credit and are turned down, for reasons that do not match your understanding of your financial position.

Winners and losers in CCHL playoffs BRIAN WILSON Special to the Advance

The fourth series in the opening round took place in Gloucester. The Earl Armstrong Arena was home to the opening game of Series D on Wednesday, Mar. 9. The Gloucester Rangers were taking on the Carleton Place Canadians, who were making their first ever post season appearance. The teams exchanged a pair of goals in the first period. The Rangers pulled out to a 3-2 lead with a little more than five minutes left in the game. The Rangers received a double minor penalty in the last two minutes of the period. The Canadians, on the power play, pulled their goalie in favour of the extra attacker and managed to tie the game at 3 with the two man advantage with just 17 seconds left in regulation time. In the overtime, Carleton Place, still on the power play, scored the game winner at the 41 second mark. Ranger’s goalie, Ben Curley, faced 43 shots in the game to keep it close. With the 4-3 win, the Canadians returned to Carleton Place for game two on Friday, Mar. 11. Tanner Hildebrandt was named the first star as he scored the first 5 goals of the game. The five goals in one playoff game tied the CCHL record set in 1987 by Dale Band. The Rangers tried valiantly to comeback from a 7 goal deficit by scoring four straight in the third. The Canadians scored once more to seal the 8-4 victory and take a two game lead in the series. Game three was back in Gloucester on Sunday, Mar. 13. After a scoreless first period, the Rangers scored twice in the second for a 2-0 lead. In the third, the Canadians scored

Kemptville biathlete goes for gold

As a young girl, Kemptville native Karen Messenger spent many hours skiing the trails in the G. Howard Ferguson Nursery Forest with her family. “That’s where she really learned to ski well. Any moment she had, she was out there,” said Karen’s mother, Judy, who remembers braving the cold with her husband, Donald, and their three daughters. Those hours on the trails sparked a love of the popular winter sport that has turned into a full time passion for Messenger, 31, now a skiing instructor and substitute teacher in Canmore, British Columbia. She recently won the 55km Classic Cross-Country Ski Race at the Canadian Birkiebiner in Edmonton, Alberta, and last week competed in the National Cross-Country Ski Championships in Canmore. An accomplished skier, the athletic Messenger had long wanted to try biathlon, which combines cross-country skiing with precision shooting, but it

wasn’t until 2008 that she first picked up a .22 calibre biathlon rifle and set out to conquer a new sport. She quickly embraced biathlon, and her intense training regimen is starting to show results. Last December, Messenger won the North American Pursuit Race in Canmore, and took gold, silver and bronze in various Calforex Cup Races this year. This week, Messenger is in Charlo, New Brunswick, competing in the 2011 Canadian Biathlon Championships. Her goal this season was to qualify for the nationals, and she is excited to see how far she can go. The driven athlete says that juggling full-time training with work is certainly a challenge, but she wouldn’t have it any other way. Like all amateur athletes, Messenger depends on the generosity of her supporters to stay afloat. She welcomes anyone interested in helping her achieve her goals, through encouragement or sponsorship, to contact her at or her parents, Donald and Judy, at Box 966 in Kemptville, Ontario, K0G 1J0.

The family of the late

James Gillespie

Tragically, while on vacation in Belize on Wednesday, February 16, 2011, Mildred Irene Lines (nee Purdy) of Kemptville at the age of 83. Predeceased by her first husband, Raymond Warren and her second husband Arnold Lines. Cherished mother of Glenn (Estelle) of Sudbury, John (Linda) of Ottawa, Brian (Anne) of Stittsville and Darrell (Mary) of Kanata. Loving grandmother of Andrew, Scott, Emily, Jessica, William and Michael. Dear sister of Juanita Linton of Smiths Falls. Greatly missed by many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by her sister Winona MacDonald, her brother Fred Purdy and dear friend Andy Jenkins. Mildred was the Deputy Clerk Treasurer for the Town of Kemptville for approximately twenty-five years retiring in 1993. Mildred was an avid golfer and world traveller. She also enjoyed bowling and hosting friends and family. She took pride in her flower gardens and lawn which she cared for passionately. She was a member of the Red Hat Society and a parishioner of St. John’s United Church in Kemptville.

wish to express a heartfelt thanks to Lorrie Moulton and John Davidson for being there for our dad, while he was at home. A sincere thank you to all relatives, neighbours and friends for phone calls, sympathy cards, online condolences and for charitable donations. Expressions of gratitude go out to the nursing staff of the Kemptville District Hospital for their kindness and compassion, and to Dr. McCallum and Dr. Rutherford for their support. Thank you to the Irvine Funeral Home and Chapel for your understanding and help. To all, your many acts of kindness shown shall never be forgotten. Jo Anne, Robin, Heather, Brandon and family, Evan and Kathy


Mildred Lines

She will be dearly missed by her family and many friends. Visitation was held at Grant Brown Funeral Home Rolston Chapel, Kemptville on Friday, February 25th. Funeral Service was held at St. John’s United Church, Kemptville on Saturday, February 26th . Interment followed at Kemptville Union Cemetery. Memorial donations to St. John’s United Church and Kemptville District Hospital Auxiliary were gratefully acknowledged by the family.
