The delicious-smelling smoke rising from Kemptville’s fire hall on Sunday was nothing to worry about. The Kemptville Fire Department roasted1,280 half chicken dinners for the 37th annual Chicken BBQ. Each mouth-watering bird was packaged with coleslaw, potato salad and a roll.

The sale of the former Acton’s Corners schoolhouse is one step closer to becoming a reality. At Monday’s meeting, North Grenville council voted unanimously to pass a bylaw rezoning the schoolhouse property on County Road 43 from rural-institutional to rural-special exemption to allow for a wider range of “adaptive uses.” The rezoning was necessary to permit the sale to a buyer who submitted an offer to the municipal-

ity in late February of this year to convert the property into a single family dwelling. The notion of selling a well-preserved, officially designated heritage property raised the ire of some in the heritage community, particularly North Grenville Historical Society president David Shanahan, who called the decision “short-sighted.” At the public meeting two weeks ago, when council deferred the vote on the bylaw, Shanahan and others pushed for the 1900s-era schoolhouse to become a heritage-themed tourist attraction.

DON’T LET ACHES AND PAINS SLOW YOU DOWN

Kemptville last Thursday. The school was evacuated just after 11 a.m. as the Ontario Provincial Police responded to a threat inside. A police cruiser blocked the main entrance to the school off Highway 43, while several officers directed traffic in the adjacent mall parking lot away from the school. Several cruisers could be seen parked outside the school’s front doors. Students and staff were relocated to the North Grenville Municipal Centre, and Bob Perreault, spokesperson for the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario, confirmed on site that all students were safe, but could provide no further details. Students and staff were permitted to reenter the building at 1:15 p.m. The 17-year-old is being dealt with under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, said OPP Cst. Cathy Lindsey, who could not provide specific information about whether the youth had been charged with any crime. He was later released into his parents’ custody. An unconfirmed report suggested that the evacuation was due to a bomb threat called in to the school. Lindsey said officers did not find anything suspicious upon searching the school. The OPP asks anyone with information about this incident to call Grenville County OPP Communication Centre at 1-888-3101122 or the Kemptville Detachment at 613-258-3441.

Helmer has taken her program into senior homes and taken all the mystery out of it. The program connects with the school curriculum by touching on issues such as problem solving, technique, how to apply different colours, following instructions, and sharpening observation skills. The school’s Grade 3 teacher Jocelyn Elliott organizes the program. She believes it is important for the children to J.

Rural politics are different All of the candidates in Leeds and Grenville as well as the ones in Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry are having their say. Next week voters can expect all-candidates meetings in Kemptville and in South Mountain. The issues on parade and promises made will be interesting, to say the least. Being a federal election, the pledges will be about national and larger than life issues as well as securing more money for local projects such as waste water treatments plants and road money. Two obvious issues will be taxes and jobs. Everyone wants lower taxes but good luck deciding who will get them. Talk about more rural jobs is great but getting them here and keeping them is another matter. Whoever becomes our next MP will have his or her work cut out for them. The agriculture sector wants a federally led scheme that would help to guarantee them a steady income as world food prices go up and down like a yo-yo. They also want an emphasis placed on the protection and production of the local food growing industry. Voters will have a hard time selecting the candidate they like best. They all are sounding pretty good. One party talks about growth and

jobs, another talks about the family, a third goes for cleaner energy ideas and another talks about pension reform. All of the candidates have interesting platforms that in the end are often more similar than different only because there are only so many solutions anyone can come up with to throw at the various challenges we all face. It is too bad that the winner of the election in our part of the world could not take all of everyone’s ideas back with them to Ottawa. The criteria for the voter’s choice will be as varied as each voter out there. In the end, who knows what will make the difference. One thing we should remember though is that despite the horror stories from the national media about how corrupt or inept politicians at the federal level are, we in rural Ontario have been spared that particular problem. Conservative, Green, NDP, or Liberal, all of our candidates have great track records, sincerity and honesty to their credit. It has been suggested that rural Ontario, in many ways, has come out ahead of urban Ontario thanks to the work of several past and present politicians from different parties at different times. We are lucky that way.

Easy protest is not worth the effort The Internet always buzzes with calls for protest of one sort or another. The latest, which is big on Facebook, is a call for people not to buy gasoline on April 15. Various figures are quoted as to what this will cost the oil companies, but the overriding idea is that they will be brought to their knees by this show of consumer force and drop prices at the pump. Even on Facebook there seems to be some awareness of flaws in the plan. For example, people might buy gas on the 14th, or the 16th. So someone has responded by creating a new group called Don’t Buy Gas on April 15th and 16th. That should fix it. Looking at some of the sites where this idea is being discussed, you can see intelligent discussion about what boycotts can and can’t accomplish, as well as some pointed critiques of the boycotters — such as the irony of someone who drives a gas guzzler engaging in a protest against the oil companies. What you don’t see are any suggestions that people work a little harder to solve what they see as a problem. “Eighty per cent of success,” Woody Allen once wrote, “is showing up.” Not showing up at a gas pump may not be all

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town that successful. Whereas showing up, or the reverse, can make an impression on those who matter. The other day in Ottawa only 32 people showed up for a discussion of less frequent garbage pickup, a proposal that was supposed to be wildly controversial. “I’m being told that everybody opposes this,” said a city councillor, Scott Moffatt. “Where are they?” Maybe they’re at home planning where not to buy gas on April 15. That’s a protest anyone can handle. No effort is involved and it literally costs nothing. Governments know that. That’s probably the reason why Earth Hour has never made much of an impact. It shows almost no commitment to turn off your lights for an hour once a year. No sacrifice is made. It is not like standing in the rain with a placard or

even writing a letter to your member of Parliament. Millions of people turned out their lights at Earth Hour on March 26 and millions didn’t. Maybe if everyone did, some governments might have noticed, but maybe not. “Sure, they turned out their lights,” someone in government might say, “but will they go to the polls?” Not everyone will, that’s for sure. The papers these days are full of interviews with young, idealistic people who say they have never voted and don’t intend to this time. Why? It’s hard to know precisely, but many say they don’t like politicians, don’t respect the process, don’t think they can make any difference. But how else are they going to make a difference? By turning off their lights for one hour once a year? By not buying gas on April 15? The danger of easy protest is that it can make the protester feel he has done his bit, when in fact he should be doing more. If he is satisfied that he has served humanity by joining a Facebook protest page or not buying gas on April 15, then humanity isn’t going to get much more out of him.

There is something to be said for making some things easy. In Ottawa, the Blue Box program is a great success primarily because it’s an easy thing to do. If recycling was difficult, fewer of us would be doing it. But attaching too much virtue to simple actions puts off the difficult ones. The Ontario government worked like crazy to get people to use different light bulbs. Nothing wrong with that, unless it allows us to think that, without making any sacrifice at all, we have now done our thing for the environment. Making significant change is hard work, every day.

Letters to the Editor Adam Harlow Fellowship Fund In this day and age of hustle and bustle, it’s encouraging to know that communities, such as Kemptville, continue to support their local charities. During the month of March, the Adam Harlow Fellowship Fund held four pancake breakfast fundraisers in correspondence with three KDMHA tournaments held at the North Grenville Municipal Centre. These events were a great success, but would never have been without the overwhelming support from the community. We would particularly like to express our sincere gratitude to Bill Osborne Chevrolet Buick GMC for sponsoring two of these breakfasts. This is the third consecutive year that we have been supported by Bill Osborne. Thanks to Bulk Barn for their continued support, and Linda Cheff and Ron Donnelly for their generous donation. Let’s not forget Grahame’s Bakery for the goodies they

sent, too! And a very special thanks to Angie Kirk and Neil Whyte for their outstanding work on behalf of the Fund over the past many years. Your absence will be greatly missed. During all four breakfasts, the Fund sold tickets for a signed hockey jersey from Johnathan Toews of the Chicago Blackhawks. Thanks so very much Archie Hill for this donation. As a result the Fund raised $335. Other donations we received came from the Novice B-1 team ($100), the Adam Harlow IP Funday ($1,000), and bequests from Roger St. Martin ($725) and Sean Doyle ($70). Thank you everyone for your generosity and continued support. Lajla Harlow Kemptville

Pitch-in Canada Week coincides with Earth Day on April 22. The effort helps the environment and encourages civic pride by making a clean community everyone’s responsibility. North Grenville has officially participated in the weeklong spring cleanup since 2007, with over 250 people pitching in last year. That number was a decrease from 2009, but Christa Stewart from the Public Works Department said that members of the Brownies, Cubs, and Kemptville Youth Centre are on board for this year, along with students looking for volunteer hours. After the cleanup, garbage bags can be left on the curb for pickup or dropped at the transfer station, free of charge. Registration is free. North Grenville councillors and staff typically join

in the effort, with Coun. Tim Sutton saying he can usually be found along the Forestry Centre trails, while the other councillors and Deputy Mayor Ken Finnerty choose to pick up trash on specific roadways. “Curry Park is mine,” said Mayor Dave Gordon, who lives nearby. If you’re wondering what needs tidying in town, Stewart said staff has received calls about garbage dumped on Beach Road, County Road 43, Bolton Road, Townline Road, and County Road 18. She reminds all participants to wear thick work gloves and highly visible clothing, and avoid potential hazards such as broken glass. “The municipality appreciates all of the help that we can get in tidying up the town in which we live,” Stewart said.

Fullarton expects the new office will increase mentorship opportunities for youth in North Grenville, Edwardsburgh, and Merrickville. The inaugural Kemptville RibFest, a fundraiser for BBBS with an established track record of success in Brockville, will take place this June. The RibFest would become a stable source of regular funding for BBBS in the North Grenville area. J.P. Antonacci Photo/Advance Staff

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Leeds and Grenville (BBBS) opened a new office in Kemptville on Friday, thanks to a grant from the provincial government’s Trillium Foundation. Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark and Trillium representative Betsy Heately presented the $127,600 grant to BBBS Executive Director Jane Fullerton at the new satellite office in the Municipal Centre. A grateful Fullarton said having a local office will enable many more children in North Grenville, Edwardsburgh and Merrickville to connect with the mentoring support services BBBS provides. “This is what we need – some presence in the community to help people see that opportunities exist,” Fullarton said. BBBS Leeds and Grenville currently serves 180 youth in the region, but 100 of those are in Brockville, where the group has its main office. “We know we’re just scratching the surface,” Fullarton said. “In every community, there is a need for mentoring for children. That’s basically a given.” The Trillium grant allows the group to open its permanent office at the Municipal Centre and hire a full- time staff person to oversee operations in Leeds and Grenville. “All the staff and the board are really excited about it,” Fullarton explained. “(The grant) enables us to get our feet under us in terms of how we’re going to operate here. Because we’re here to stay.” The organization allocated $25,000 of the grant money to stage a RibFest this summer, a

proven moneymaker for BBBS in Brockville. The Kemptville RibFest, scheduled for June 17-19, is “a tremendous opportunity” to generate sustainable funding for BBBS programs, Fullarton said. Brockville’s RibFest has grown to become that city’s bestattended festival, and Fullarton plans to use the same “winning formula” to make Kemptville’s RibFest a popular tourist draw. To that end, the inaugural edition will feature a free WWE wrestling show and a Justin Bieber tribute artist, among other acts. The hope is that revenue generated through donations and the RibFest will sustain the new office after the grant money sees it through its first two years. Fullarton thanked municipality staff and Coun. Terry Butler for the “wonderful welcome” BBBS has received in North Grenville, calling the new office “a dream come true.” Lisa Davis, president of the Kemptville Youth Centre, attended the launch to show support for BBBS. “We serve demographics that are complementary,” Davis said. “We think it’s fabulous that they’re here.” Lindsay Butcher-Dodds, a certified teacher who has worked with several non-profit organizations, will head the new office. Among her first orders of business is making connections with school boards and community groups to find volunteers and young people looking for mentors. Butcher-Dodds welcomes anyone interested in volunteering to drop by the new office. “I would say, just try it. You might change a life, and it just might change yours as well,” she said.

Excellent Presentation at Social Media BC Event Testimonials from the Chamber’s Social Media Workshop The Social Media workshop was fantastic. The presentation was very informative. I knew that social media was out there but did not realize to what extent each age group is using these networks. I went right home that night & set up a Face book page for my husband, Ron Littau, to use to promote the listings for The Pratt Team. Judy Littau, Office Administrator Royal Lepage Gale Real Estate I enjoyed myself very much – not only the networking but also the presentations! Marlin Travel as a corporation educated us about social media but it was because of my attending your workshop that I added Marlin Travel Kemptville to Google places. PS I already signed up for the next breakfast, too. Jasmine Moses, Branch Manager

DON MERCER

Our society seems to run on caffeine. Many among us cannot function until that first hit in the morning. Those of us who are not coffee aficionados rely on tea or other beverages to get our “jolts”. After a day of caffeine, it may be difficult to sleep or to wind down, since caffeine is a stimulant. This is where decaffeinated coffee and tea become important. Chemical processes intrigue me as do their origins. Who came up with the idea of doing something in a particular way and what prompted these discoveries? Of course some could have happened totally by chance and an enterprising person might have been able to make a commercial success of them. This was apparently the case

with the decaffeination of tea. There is a story that long ago, several chests of tea were swept overboard from a ship during a severe storm at sea. The tea chests were later discovered washed ashore. After rinsing away the salt water and re-drying the leaves, those drinking the tea noticed that they did not get the usual buzz from the tea. Basically what had happened was that the salt water had removed the caffeine from the tea leaves. Thus began the process for salt water extraction of caffeine. As happens in many cases, there is more than one way to approach a problem. Some imaginative and creative souls found that a harsh chemical treatment of green coffee beans could remove their caffeine. A formulation of methylene chloride was used to solubilize the

caffeine and thereby decaffeinate the coffee. Many of you may have encountered methylene chloride in another application. If you read the label on a can of paint remover, the main ingredient is - you guessed it - methylene chloride. Residual levels of this solvent are extremely low or non-existent, and are highly regulated to ensure the safety of consumers, so it should not be a major worry to you. However, drinking a beverage decaffeinated with methylene chloride may not be everyone’s cup of tea. Fortunately, modern science has developed an incredibly elegant decaffeination process. It is simple, completely safe, and involves no harmful chemicals - not even salt water. Supercritical fluid extraction uses liquid carbon dioxide. The coffee or tea to be decaffeinated is placed in a large column

which can withstand relatively high pressures. Once sealed, liquid carbon dioxide is pumped into the column where it solubilizes the caffeine. After the extraction process has been completed, the liquid carbon dioxide is pumped to a second column. When the pressure is released in this column, the liquid carbon dioxide vaporizes to form a gas. The gaseous carbon dioxide is then re-compressed to go back into its liquid form and is used to decaffeinate a fresh batch of coffee or tea. Meanwhile, the caffeine extracted from the coffee or tea is recovered and used as an ingredient in many pharmaceutical preparations. The decaffeinated coffee or tea can be packaged and sold with no risk of any harmful chemical residues remaining from the extraction process. Carbon dioxide makes up

about one percent of the air around us and is exhaled when we breathe as a product of our respiration process. As soon as the decaffeinated coffee or tea is exposed to the air outside of the extraction column, the carbon dioxide is dissipated, so there is absolutely no worry to the consumer. Supercritical fluid extraction has other interesting uses as well. As an example, essential oils from mint leaves and other similar plants can be extracted using liquid carbon dioxide. The extracted oils have a wonderfully fresh aroma and are of extremely high quality. This is just one example of how modern science is contributing to the safety and quality of the food we enjoy.

Letter to a Loved One .At least one of our cats has had kittens. Her previously bulbous belly now looks like a deflated balloon, and she keeps coming up to the house for more treats, more treats, and more treats. I wish someone would open a clinic where they allow you to bring your barn cats to get fixed. And I wish that researcher would hurry up and create that cat contraceptive she’s been writing about. I need it. I know you would have a comment or two about my problem but you can just keep that opinion to yourself, thanks. Most of the lambs are in the barn now, with swelling udders (do sheep have udders?) and really bad haircuts. Actually the Farmer did a fantastic job with his brand-new shears but the sheep just look odd to me with no wool. They look naked and foolish.

The Accidental Farmwife Lambs will be born by the end of the month. Then the excitement begins. I hope we have planned the season well and taken all necessary precautions so that the lambing will be successful and the ewes will have plenty of milk and maternal instincts to care for their young. And if they

don’t, I’ll be there with a baby bottle in the middle of the night to feed the forgotten. The snow is all gone and the tulips are coming up. I sent away for a Rose of Sharon and I’m more than a little excited about it. Hopefully “Sharon” will take over and choke out the yellow outhouse flowers that crowd my flower bed each year. I bought a pot of salmon-pink Gerbera daisies (my favourite; probably not yours ) to put on your gravesite today. But I didn’t make it there. Life is busy, as I’m sure you remember. And quite honestly, although we chose the perfect spot for future generations to visit and remember you – at the back of the cemetery, on the ridge overlooking the creek, where deer and birds visit (we’ve seen the tracks) - I just don’t get the feeling that you are there. I know many people go to the fi-

nal resting places of their loved ones and talk to them, bringing them up to date on the goings on of their lives. I just don’t feel I need to do that. I feel you already know exactly what’s going on in my life. You know I’m in between jobs and a little stressed by it. When I’m writing a huge proposal for a contract, I feel you are giving me advice and putting words into my head. Checking my math on the financials. I get some sort of energy from you that pushes me to meet my assignment deadlines and boosts my confidence at meetings and presentations. I’m sure you know we buried two of our friends this week, and that we were physically and emotionally exhausted by Friday, my 43rd birthday. The gatherings, the visitations, the funeral – it’s been

three years since we were the ones standing in line receiving heartfelt sympathies but the memories are still very fresh. You know that one of the issues lying in wait, eager to be dealt with, is that our only remaining daughter plans to move out this summer. As she should. She is almost eighteen. I’m not worried about the empty nest syndrome – the Farmer and I enjoy each other’s company and we are proud of our independent daughters. I’m just worried that she is entering that next phase, heading off into the great unknown. I know you know what I’m going through. But I sure would love to have you here, to get your opinion, your advice and your sense of humour, which always had a way of lightening the load. I miss you Dad. Love, D. x

Decaffeination - An interesting history


Kemptville Advance - APRIL 14, 2011

Leeds and Grenville The riding of Leeds and Grenville is made up of ten different municipalities with a population of more than 100,000. The riding has a size of 3,350 square kilometers. The municipalities and major towns in the riding are: Township of Athens, Township of Augusta, Township of Edwardsburgh/Cardinal, Township of Elizabethtown-Kitley, Township of Front of Yonge, Township of Leeds and

the Thousand Islands, Village of Merrickville-Wolford, Municipality of North Grenville, Township of Rideau Lakes, Village of Westport and the towns of Brockville, Prescott and Gananoque. Two-term incumbent Conservative Gord Brown is facing off against Liberal candidate Marjory Loveys, Green Party candidate Mary Slade and NDP candidate Matthew Gabriel.

Ecomomic achievement and a healthy marketplace Name: Gord Brown Party: Conservative Gord Brown is a familiar face in Leeds and Grenville. First elected to the House of Commons in 2004, he served in opposition before being reelected to Conservative minority governments in 2006 and again in 2008. Brown was born in Toronto but grew up in Gananoque, returning to the city after university to run his family’s lodging and food services business. A former town councillor and community leader, Brown was president of the Gananoque Chamber of Commerce when he put together the 1000 Islands Gananoque Chamber of Commerce and helped found the popular Festival of the Islands. As chair of the St. Lawrence Parks Commission, Brown secured $15 million in government funding for the revitalization of cherished tourist destinations Upper Canada Village and Fort Henry. In Parliament, Brown points to a number of “significant infrastructure investments” in North Grenville such

as the Kemptville library; roadwork in Edwardsburgh-Cardinal; the Maritime Discovery Centre; waste water and sewage treatment plants in Merrickville, Prescott, Brockville, and Gananoque; and the rebuilt Port of Prescott, as proof that the Conservative government has been good for the region. “Millions and millions of dollars have come in terms of infrastructure investments, and I have been intimately involved in those efforts through Canada’s Economic Action Plan,” he said. Brown supports local decision-making bodies such as the Eastern Ontario Development Program (EODP) as the best way to ensure money is spent well. “Governments invest a lot of money into regional economic development. Often, those decisions are made by bureaucrats in Ottawa. (But) who knows how better to reflect community priorities than a local board?” he said. A twoyear EODP extension worth $10 million would return in a future Conservative budget. As an MP, Brown chaired the Conservative renewable energy caucus, pushing for the regulations on ethanol fuel content, which is now five percent nationally. He also co-chairs the Canada-

United States Interparliamentary Association, which works to ensure the smooth flow of goods and people to the border states. Brown has introduced two Private Member’s Bills. As part of the Conservative tough on crime agenda, the government passed a section of Bill C-393, also known as the Knife Bill, which does away with two and three-for-one pre-trial custody credits for violent offenders. His other bill, to secure Employment Insurance benefits for working parents of critically ill children, had not been debated before the government fell, though Brown hopes to reintroduce it if reelected, with support from around the House. He has also supported efforts to protect pensions as part of the Industry committee. He has raised over $200,000 for the United Way since the last election. “I hope to be reelected, and I hope to be a member for some time to come. When I’m all done, if people say ‘he worked hard, he was passionate about what he was doing, and he made a difference in our communities and made them even just a little better than it was when he started,’ I will be proud to have served,” he said.

Job creation and reliable public service Name: Matthew Gabriel Party: NDP Matthew Gabriel wants to bring a common man into the House of Commons, and that’s part of the reason he’s running for the Leeds-Grenville riding. The 39-year-old resident of the Township of Augusta is entering the political world for the first-time. He said the key reason he decided to jump into the political world is because he is an unsatisfied constituent. “I don’t figure that were represented properly,” Gabriel said, referring to the Leeds-Grenville riding. “With all the factory closures, long-term effects of free trade…we’ve lost so many good paying jobs that were staples in the community. In 1991, when I finished high school, you were set (after graduating), that’s not the case anymore. So many people I went to high school with, their dream has been taken away. They have to uproot and move or leave their families to go find work.”

Gabriel said the main message he is trying to get out to people is that he will work hard to complete any job that needs to be done. “There’s so many concerns, small businesses, seniors, day care, it’s such a broad spectrum,” he said. “I don’t make promises, I make commitments. I make a commitment to do the best job I can and not give up until it’s done.” Gabriel said one of his key areas of focus, if elected, is to put more effort into attracting and promoting small businesses in the area. Gabriel currently works as a field service technician for Bell Technical Solutions, based out of Brockville, and has worked for Bell Canada since 1999. Before becoming employed with Bell, he worked a variety of different jobs, including short-order cook, salesman, bouncer and working on a farm. He said he does not have a postsecondary degree or diploma, but he said he has a unique perspective to bring to the political table. “I have a degree in working,” he said. “I’ve been working since the summer of Grade 7,” he said.

Gabriel said he knows what it’s like to struggle with paying the bills and being out of work, something he said helps him relate to many of the riding’s residents, who are dealing with similar struggles. Gabriel is a single father, who is raising his 12-year-old daughter Brianna fulltime. Gabriel has allowed Brianna to share his new political experiences with him first-hand. He has allowed her to go doorto-door with him at times to experience canvassing neighbourhoods. “First and foremost I’m trying to be a good a father for my daughter,” he said. “It’s the most important thing for me.” Gabriel is the vice-president chief steward for the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union (CEP) Local 31, representing union employees for Bell Canada in Kingston, Brockville, Smiths Falls and Cornwall. He said he has always enjoyed being an advocate for other people. “I don’t want to change the world, I want to make things better in Leeds and Grenville,” he said. “My family is here, my friends are here, and I’ve made my roots here.

Name: Marjory Loveys Party: Liberal This is the second time around for Marjory Loveys as the Liberal candidate in the riding of Leeds and Grenville. She was also a candidate in the 2008 federal election. Loveys, a consultant and resident of Brockville, and her husband Tony believe that one of the requirements for the job of representing Leeds and Grenville is that you have to look at the position as a noble calling that requires a determined voice. Anyone involved in federal politics, she feels, should have an excellent understanding of public polices. I have been knocking on a lot of doors,” she said, adding, “I am getting a good response.” Having a strategy to meet the modern day challenges in Leeds and Grenville is a must. “My approach is to listen to all sides of an issue and find a path forward that works for everyone,” states a com-

ment from her on her website. She has described herself as the kind of person who would never be comfortable stubbornly defending a position while ignoring the ideas and perspective of those with a different view. “I feel very strongly about the national government and its lack of integrity,” she said. She is concerned not only about the choices the current government is making but also how they are being made. “On the national level we have to do better,” she explained. She feels that in her riding the issue of jobs has to be dealt with. She feels that even though there has been some effort made to solve the job issues the government needs to do more. Loveys believes that including average Canadians in the decision making process is a priority. She feels Canadians have to be respected and given as much information as possible. Family friendly government is her slogan and she follows that up with a pledge to give families help. One of her platform items is about helping families financially with post-

secondary education costs. Another is helping caregivers in a family situation by allowing them six months of unemployment insurance. She also has a plan to offer families $1,200 for out of pocket expenses when they are caring for a sick loved one. “Families want to be self sufficient, but there are hurdles from time to time,” she said. Supporting the farming industry is another promise she has made. Loveys want to see better food labeling practices used so that Canadians have a better chance of understanding what they are eating. She also wants to ensure that there is meaningful and serious dialogue with Canada’s farming community. “We want to make sure that our farmers are on a level playing field.” As she knocks on doors and talks to voters in Leeds and Grenville she says many people are concerned about the lack of integrity in government. She wants to change that. “I will always be in touch with “regular folks” and not be captured by “experts” with a narrow view of what is important.

Looking for long-term sustainable employment Name: Mary Slade Party: Green For Mary Slade, retirement is “the most fantastic experience” because it’s when you can pursue what matters to you. That’s why the organic cattle farmer, MS Society volunteer, former school board planner, mother of three and avid gardener is adding one more thing to her list of pursuits: Green Party candidate for Leeds-Grenville. Slade won her party’s nomination in 2009 when a possible election seemed to be looming. Now that it’s here, Slade says she sees her party growing on the same level as her cucumbers: the grassroots. There, at the community level, is where she has found so many examples of vibrant democracy, standing in stark contrast to what she sees happening on Parliament Hill. “We just need to get a hold of that energy and take it to Ottawa,” Slade said, speaking from her home in Athens

Township. “I turn on Question Period and I get angry because the questioners aren’t asking questions…and the people who answer them aren’t answering the questions.” That’s part of the reason why Slade would be happy to neglect her garden for a while if elected: to bring some civility back into politics, and to bring the focus back to the quality of life of real Canadians. These days she’s out and about touting her platform to individuals and families in her riding. It’s a platform that’s been vetted at the party level, developed at the community level, and designed to address the current problems of Canadians, she said. But introducing people to her party, showing they’re “a real option,” is not her favourite part of the campaign. It’s the other way around. “What’s so interesting about running is you get to meet such a fantastic crosssection of people,” she said. With degrees from both Carleton University and the former Ottawa Teacher’s College, Slade worked in Brockville using her data analysis skills to do short and long-term planning for the school board there.

She later left the city to raise horned Herefords on a farm with her husband and three children. Like many young people, one of her sons moved away to find work, in his case as an electrician in Flin Flon, Manitoba. She said his story is but one of many examples of young people leaving the area and yet another reason why Leeds-Grenville needs to create “long-term, sustainable employment” in the local economy. “We need stable businesses to retain our young people.” Jobs and taxes fall under one section of her local platform, with the other two entitled “Healthy Living” and “Real Food.” Slade said her party’s approach is to improve overall quality of life through initiatives such as tax breaks for people enrolling in fitness activities, as well as the promotion of local, organic foods. But given Slade’s focus on grassroots democracy, it’s no wonder there’s another issue she finds just as pressing. “One of my fears is people won’t come out and vote,” she said. Getting more people out to vote this election should be “a challenge to Canada as a whole,” she said.

Students challenged to change the world

Want to change the world? Ask a kid how it’s done. Students from eight elementary schools in the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) suggested ways to improve their communities at the 2011 Change the World Challenge at the North Grenville Municipal Centre last Friday. Projects ranged from creating a community vegetable garden and building a school in Afghanistan to launching a cyber bullying awareness website. The students researched the issues, wrote a

promotions plan, and related the idea to the curriculum. At stake was $4,000 in project funding courtesy of various sponsors, to a maximum of $1,000 per group. Each presentation had to include a detailed budget. The students presented their projects to a panel of four judges, who weren’t as snarky as the business titans on the CBC TV series Dragon’s Den. Veteran international aid workers Bruce Fink and Ron W. Ferguson, CBC news anchor Adrian Harewood, and business executive Jason Schooley seemed genuinely taken with the stu-dents and their interesting projects.

The judges asked questions about logistics and the motivation behind the ideas, and offered their feedback and suggestions for improvement. Three students from Oxford-on-Rideau PS – Tyler Breedon, Kaitlin Casey, and Nick Sadler – made the case for establishing a greenhouse at their school. South Branch ES sent its Environmental Awareness Team – Andrew Caicco, Dana Hibbard, Andrew MacFarlane, Chris McAleer, Alex Potschka and Duncan Spencer – to pitch a sustainable traveling road show that would feature students promoting environmental awareness through presentations at oth-

er schools in the board. The idea is a spinoff of a show that South Branch students presented to students at their school last year. The expanded version would include a website, stickers on classroom light switches reminding students to turn off the lights when leaving the room, and tips on recycling and how to pack a litter-free lunch. Harewood was particularly impressed with the confidence shown by South Branch spokesmen McAleer and MacFarlane, who he thought exhibited great poise and pacing. The competition was sponsored by UCDSB’s Venture Education initiative.

Instant millionaire in Kemptville STAFF Oxford Station Road resident Michelle Smith is enjoying the thrill of winning big on a scratch ticket she bought at Mac’s Convenience Store on the North Rideau Road in Kemptville. She is Ontario’s newest instant millionaire after buying an Ontario Instant Millions game. “I screamed at the top of my lungs after scratching the ticket and realizing the prize was so large. It still hasn’t sunk in yet,� Smith said at the OLG prize centre in Toronto last week. “I play for the chance to actually win a million and now it has actually happened,� she added. Smith has plans for her windfall. “First I am going to help my family, do some home renovations. Then I’ll bank the rest,� she said.

STORMONT - DUNDAS - SOUTH GLENGARRY The riding of Stormont Dundas and South Glengarry consists of the municipalities North Dundas, South Dundas, North and South Stormont and South Glengarry. It has a population of more than 110,000 people and is located on a major industrial distribution hub including highways 401, 416 and 417, the CNR main line, the St. Lawrence Seaway, and international

border crossings. The riding’s major centres are Cornwall, Morrisburg, Iroquois, Winchester and Chesterville. Conservative incumbent Guy Lauzon has served two terms as its Member of Parliament and is up against Liberal candidate Bernadette Clement, NDP candidate Mario Leclerc and Green candidate Wyatt Walsh.

Seeking “a different style of representation” Name: Bernadette Clement Party: Liberal Bernadette Clement is cutting short her second term as a Cornwall city councillor to run federally as the Liberal candidate in Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry. Clement wants to bring “a different style of representation” to a riding she calls “the perfect representation of Canada,” with its mix of rural and urban centres, and English, French and First Nations communities. The longtime community leader says she is focused on serving her riding locally, and helping change the national political landscape. “I think that it’s time for the Harper government to go, and I want to play my part in that,” she said. A lawyer by trade, Clement has worked in Cornwall’s Legal Clinic for 18 years – she is now deputy-director – and has assisted victims of crime, injured workers and people with disabilities. She sees income security and pensions as crucial issues in this election. “I have

a background in income security, and I think, with the number of seniors we have in this community, making sure pensions are secure is very important,” she said. Clement is also a part-time law instructor at St. Lawrence College. She applauds the Liberal learning package, a $1 billion program that will open up more college and university spots for high school students from communities who presently cannot afford the cost of tuition. She thinks postsecondary education is essential for people from all income levels to help Canadians excel in the modern economy. “As a community, as a riding, if we want to attract different types of investment, we have to have a labour force that is healthy and well-educated,” she said. Clement brings a diverse background to the campaign. As a city councillor she has chaired Cornwall’s planning advisory committee and served as a member of the St. Lawrence River Institute Board. She also serves on Cornwall area community boards to do with immigrant services, the environment, and family counselling. She is president of the board of Bald-

win House and is a board member of the Kinsman Community Residence and the Eastern Ontario Training Board. The Montreal-born lawyer is fluently bilingual and considers herself to be “the epitome of a Canadian citizen,” as her father immigrated from Trinidad, her mother grew up in Manitoba, and her grandfather farmed the prairies of Saskatchewan. Clement looks to help Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry manage the shift away from a manufacturing economy, and leave a legacy of unity between urban centres, rural communities, and the agricultural sector. “We’re so lucky that we have these small urban centres with farms right outside. So we really should be one of the ridings where those communities are most connected,” she said. “We should be buying local, we should know our farmers. So I’d like to see a lot more connection between those communities, a lot more understanding in terms of the importance of each. I think that as we move away from manufacturing, it would be nice to attract investment that is greener, the jobs of the future.”

Working for economic growth Name: Guy Lauzon Party: Conservative Guy Lauzon is the current Conservative Member of Parliament for StormontDundas-South Glengarry. He was born and raised in the area and has years of experience in business. He was elected to the House of Commons back in 2004 and was reelected in 2006. His platform for the 2004 federal election was economic development. He has been involved with business and community leaders in revitalizing the Cornwall waterfront and helping other Seaway communities prepare for economic prosperity. One challenge along the Seaway has been keeping industry from moving away. He is dedicated to enhancing opportunities for post-secondary education in the riding. Looking back at the last few years in Parliament, Guy Lauzon says he could not have arrived on the political scene at a better time. “I am enjoying the

campaign,” he said. He admitted that he does not take any of his opponents in the election for granted, “I have to work hard.” He said that he has been out knocking on as many doors as he can and the experience has been very positive. He said people are interested in their taxes, health care the economy and jobs, all areas he feels his government has worked hard to stabilize. “We want to eliminate the deficit, continue to spur the economy on and lay down the foundation for more employment,” he said. “We have to grow the economy.” The government has come up with a few ideas on how to invite industry to grow such as offering businesses $1,000 for every new hire and lowering corporate taxes to encourage industry to spend more money on growing. Over the past five years Lauzon’s riding has held its own. There has been $200 million in stimulus funding in SD&SG as well as 218 federal jobs created in the area. “We are better off now than we were five years ago,” said Lauzon. Paying attention to the

agriculture sector has always been a priority for Lauzon. “We have opened up 18 foreign markets,” he said, explaining that he has received great support from the agricultural sector. He believes that good management from the top of his government down to Members of Parliament have resulted in local and national stability. Lauzon has served as General Manager of Tri-County Protein Corp., served as manager of the Cornwall office of Human Resources Development Canada and is the founder of the Bonville Flea Market. He has also worked for Domtar and Metropolitan Life Insurance. He is on record for saying that he loves his job and the opportunity it gives him to help people. He is married to Frances and his family roots in the area go back to the 1800s. Between spending time in the House of Commons and looking after his community Lauzon is very busy. He coordinated the fundraising team for the new Aquatic Centre in Cornwall and has served as the Chair of the Cornwall Canada Day celebrations.


Name: Mario Leclerc Party: NDP New Democrat Mario Leclerc brings a strong background in public service and labour relations to his candidacy in Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry. The fluently bilingual Cornwall resident currently works at the Cornwall Service Canada office as a payment officer, and serves as president of the Public Service Alliance of Canada Eastern Ontario Council and the Canada Employment and Immigration Union Local 621. Leclerc also sits on the executive of the Cornwall and District Labour Council, and has been a member of the Ontario Criminal Injury Compensation Board and TV Ontario/TFO advisory board. Leclerc seeks to bring a “progressive voice” to Ottawa to combat the erosion of the middle class and help close the widening gap between rich and poor. “In 1979 in Canada, the average CEO was

making about 25 times more than the average worker. Today in Canada, the average CEO is making 250 times more than the average worker. This is shocking, isn’t it?” he said. Leclerc identifies health care and the economy as his top priorities. He is dismayed at the lengthy wait times at Cornwall Community Hospital (CCH), and believes the federal government should renegotiate the Canada Health Act with the provinces to help relieve the current doctor shortage. “We need more cohesion between the levels of governments and the municipalities to make sure those situations will not occur any more. That’s what we want to achieve,” he said. Job creation would be a top priority of an NDP government. “We want to help small and medium businesses and target that help to those doing factory jobs,” as opposed to funding corporate tax cuts, he said. He sees the corporate tax cuts enacted by the Harper government as an example of “Robin Hood turned upside down,” as individual taxpayers shoulder the burden lifted from corporations. “We need to end that,” he said.

Leclerc points out that the corporate tax rate has gone done from 36 per cent in 1980 to the rate of 15 per cent proposed by the Conservatives for 2012. To compare, he said the Unitied Stated today has a 35 per cent corporate tax rate. “There’s 132 billion dollars of tax (revenue) that goes there, of our money, and it’s not even proven that (corporate tax cuts) create jobs,” Leclerc said. He believes the country would see a better return on investment by spending to improve municipal infrastructure and invest in affordable housing for families and seniors living in poverty. He has pledged to work to attract green collar jobs and high tech jobs, and will push for more federal government jobs in SDSG. Local projects he supports include expanding the Cornwall Regional Airport in Summerstown and building a new arts centre in Cornwall. Leclerc calls himself a “fighter” who will advocate for his constituents in the House of Commons, especially seniors and those in the agricultural sector. He says voters he meets on the campaign trail are responding to his message.

Looking at different ways to face challenges Name: Wyatt Walsh Party: Green The Green Party candidate for Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry is long time area resident Wyatt Walsh. He moved to Cornwall from Cape Breton in 1967. Wyatt and Darlene Walsh have four children. He is self employed, working in the environmental clean-up industry. He describes himself as a typical middle-class, and middle of the road kind of person. He says that he is fiscally Conservative, socially Liberal and morally Green. His involvement with the Green Party comes as a result of his concern for the future of his children and grandchildren. One of his concerns is the consequences of globally predicted increased oil prices and what that could mean to Canada’s economy. In a statement he said, “Oil prices are

approaching those of 2008, which helped trigger the current depression. None of the traditional parties appear capable of accepting this fact, which is why Canada is still addicted to fossil fuels.” He also feels that without a secure pipeline from Alberta, carrying Canadian oil to eastern Canada, there could be a disaster if OPEC cuts supplies. His fear is that the current trend for business to leave the Seaway area will continue. One example he gave was Startek, a call centre in Cornwall. The company has announced that it will be laying off close to 400 people by the end of this July. The reason for the layoff ’s has been the high Canadian dollar. He wants to bring a fresh perspective to parliament with a thinking out of the box attitude. “I want more honest dialogue and logical solutions,” he said while explaining that from his perspective everything comes down to money and taxation. He feels that politicians spend too much time dressing up issues instead of dealing with them in a straightforward fashion. “I would like to change the national energy policy,” he said. Walsh is currently working on an electricity

generating project that takes methane produced from cow manure, and uses it to operate generators that produce electricity. The project he is working on is the largest in North America and should be able to produce 100 Kilowatts per hour. “China is already doing this,” he explained. He said that thinking outside the box resulted in the methane to electricity process becoming a reality. Walsh feels that big government can lose its problem solving effectiveness over time. He would like to bring a fresh perspective to Ottawa. He suggested that there are solutions to national issues that the government has not looked at. Walsh has novel solutions that can be applied to the health care situation as well as ideas on how to make the Seaway a more profitable part of Ontario. He believes a solution to any issue has to make good financial sense before it is implemented. He feels that in order to revitalize the Seaway area you have to look at how other parts of the country have managed in the same situation and consider if their solutions will work here.

Survey says North Grenville’s trail plan is on the right path

J.P. ANTONACCI jp.antonacci@metroland.com

North Grenville’s planning and development director Forbes Symon has a soft spot for the area’s walking trails. It seems he’s not alone. A whopping 480 people completed a survey created by the municipality to gauge public interest in developing and connecting the region’s walking trails as part of North Grenville’s Green and Growing plan. The survey, which was available in print and online, asked respondents where they wanted new trails created, what they used current trails for, and how much they valued the existing 150 km trail system. Symon, a trail enthusiast and vice president of the Ontario Trails Council, was “ecstatic” with the response. MMM Group, the consultants hired by the municipality to evaluate the survey results, were similarly overwhelmed. “This is the largest participation they’ve ever had in 15 years of do-

High School and the hospital would allow children and young families to bike and play while hospital staff and patients go for a stroll. “I think (the response) means that trails are an extremely important emerging feature within this community,” Symon said. “They provide an opportunity to be healthy in a very informal, unstructured way.” Symon sees the trail system as a lowmaintenance complement to North Grenville’s state of the art hockey rinks, soccer fields, and baseball diamonds. “Council was of the opinion, sort of intuitively and by being in touch with their constituents, that the trails was a really good area to move in, and that sense has been very much vindicated by the response we’ve got,” he said. “And it means that people care. You put time and effort into a project, and when people respond, it makes it all worthwhile.” Preliminary survey results will be available for public perusal at the Sustainability Fair on April 17 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Municipal Centre.

ing this kind of work,” Symon said. “We’re very excited about that, and (the project) is turning out to be more than we’d hoped.” Symon envisions an interconnected trail system that will one day allow residents of outlying areas like Settlers Grant to forgo their cars and walk or bike into Kemptville.

“I think trails are an extremely important emerging feature within this community.” Forbes Symon Additionally, he hopes to see new trails through the city centre that connect the established trail systems at the Kemptville Campus and the Ferguson Forestry Centre, so that people in downtown Kemptville will no longer have to get into their car to get to the trails.

From the front Instead, the municipality has opted to sell the building and use the proceeds to help pay for the new library in Kemptville. The deal has not been finalized, but the bylaw passed on Monday was the final hurdle from the municipality’s point of view. While she does not know the identity of the prospective purchaser, Coun. Barb Tobin believes a private owner will be better able to protect the building’s unique heritage features than the municipality itself. “I don’t think that the municipality is in the business of running tourist attractions,” Tobin said in an interview, referring to Shanahan’s proposal. “People have to realize the cost of doing business. Yes, I’d love to keep every heritage building we have for ourselves, but we as a municipality don’t have the resources.” Tobin said that the sale price was in the neighbourhood of $100,000, but added that if the municipality were to keep the schoolhouse and convert it for public use, the total cost to taxpayers would be much higher. At Monday’s meeting, CAO Andy Brown spelled out that cost. He pegged utilities and basic maintenance at between $11-12,000 annually. Improving the ventilation, updating the plumbing to install running water and an indoor washroom, adding a ramp and second doorway for wheelchair access, and installing the well and septic system would set the municipality back another $75-80,000. Each councillor spoke before the vote, which as per Deputy Mayor Ken Finnerty’s request was “recorded,” with each councillor and the mayor casting their

vote out loud. In a refrain picked up by his colleagues, Coun. Tim Sutton assured attendees that he had weighed the cultural and financial considerations at hand before deciding to support the sale. “We have to be concerned with our budget,” he said, pointing to local community halls and the Kemptville courthouse as existing venues for the kinds of meetings that were one held in the schoolhouse. “There’s really no need at this time for another municipally owned meeting place,” he said. Sutton recited a litany of converted heritage buildings in North Grenville that, thanks to caring owners, have retained their heritage value even as their usage changed. “The new owner will be breathing life and love into this building, and I wish them well,” he said.

“The new owner will be breathing life and love into this building.” Coun. Tim Sutton Coun. Terry Butler thanked the many citizens who called and emailed his office to express their views on the importance of preserving North Grenville’s heritage. “I’m very confident that the Acton’s Corners schoolhouse and the downtown (Kemptville) library are fully protected under the Heritage Act, and will be standing long after I’m gone,” Butler said, adding that he would push for part of the proceeds of the sale of the municipality’s “surplus” heritage buildings to be put into a heritage preservation fund, as

council had previously considered. The municipality would not release any information about the purchaser, citing privacy concerns, but several sources with knowledge of the transaction said that the buyer was a young woman who was “charmed” by the unique property and valued its heritage elements. The objects inside the schoolhouse, including the school bell, locks and keys, and even the original desks, are considered “chattel” in real estate terms, and would transfer to the buyer, Brown said. But, should the buyer not want these items, which are also protected under the provincial Heritage Act, the municipality would have the first opportunity to reclaim them. The municipality’s Heritage Advisory Committee is reviewing the buyer’s renovation plan, and has expressed willingness to advise the new owner on the project. Shanahan fears that the historical society’s exit, reportedly due to mould present inside, hastened the schoolhouse’s demise as a public building. “I would hate to think that our moving out made it easier for (council) to sell it,” he said. Brown, who said that the schoolhouse did not in fact have any mould inside, just “stagnant air,” indicated that the purchase process would likely conclude by the end of the month.

23rd Osgoode Trade & Home Show One of Eastern Ontario’s most successful Trade and Home Shows is planned for another year at the Osgoode Community Centre. The Osgoode Trade and Home Show opens on Friday, April 15 at 5 p.m. until 9 p.m. and continues on Saturday, April 16 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Osgoode and District Lions Club are busy preparing for the 23rd edition of the popular Trade and Home Show to held in the Stuart Holmes Arena at the Osgoode

Community Centre. Although larger shows like the various specialized shows held in Ottawa have taken their toll on smaller localized shows, the Osgoode event continues to attract the smaller area businesses which are often home-based and family operated. Each year organizers make an effort to attract new and different businesses, often those from the local and nearby communities who are just beginning a new ser-

vice or featuring a new product. Once again, admission to the show will be free. Entertainment for youngsters will be found at the Kids Korner. A Saturday noon lunch will be served by the St. Paul’s Anglican Church Women. The generous sponsorship by many local businesses enables this event to be a valuable and profitable project for the Osgoode Lions, allowing them to provide for their many community services.

Last October, the North Grenville Sports Hall of Fame was founded to recognize the contribution of local athletes past and present. Seventeen individuals were inducted to the inaugural class in such diverse sports as hockey, football, riding, soccer, basketball, and the Paralympics, along with one entire hockey team, the 1947-48 Kemptville Royals. Sports fans can learn about the hall of famers through displays that play on a continuous loop on television screens in the lobby of the North Grenville Municipal Centre arena A fundraising golf tournament and dinner on May 14 will raise funds for the hall of fame and the Adam Harlow Foundation. The public is invited to join some of the hall of famers, their families and friends, and community sports enthusiasts at Rideau Glen Golf Course in Kemptville for a 10 a.m. shotgun start. The price of dinner and 18 holes of golf is $100 per person, or $360 for a foursome. The Hall hopes to have approximately 150 people on the links, but many more can come just for dinner, which will also feature a silent auction and 50/50 draw. Part of the proceeds will be used to help fund the Hall’s next induction ceremony in the fall. “The (induction ceremony) was such a success last year, and it was all free. And we want to keep it that way,” said hall of fame cochair Doug Rigby. The Hall has plans to eventually expand to “hundreds of members” and develop an interactive computer system to replace the

present TV screens, he added. Rigby said a significant portion of the golf tournament proceeds will be donated to the Adam Harlow Fellowship Fund, named after a Kemptville Panthers goalie who died in March 2002 at the young age of ten. The fund helps families who could not otherwise afford to enroll their children

in hockey by paying their league registration fees and subsidizing some equipment costs. To date, the foundation has raised close to $40,000 and helped 95 young hockey players take to the ice. Golfers have until May 1 to purchase tickets, which can be obtained by writing to the Municipality of North Grenville

Storm knocks out power to North Dundas District High School North Dundas District High School experienced a power reduction Monday morning after high winds blew down an area hydro line, knocking out power to one of three main feeder lines to the

school, said Wayne Joseph, a facilities services manager with the Upper Canada District School Board. The incident left the school without water and phone service, and power to

only part of the building. The reduction was discovered about 7 a.m. and power was fully restored by Hydro One crews about 8:30 a.m. Full service was briefly cut to North

Dundas and nearby Maple Ridge Senior Public School from about 8:15 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. as Hydro One crews affected repairs.

Pembroke, Cornwall battle for 2011 Bogart Cup BRIAN WILSON Special to the Advance

In the highly anticipated series between the Cornwall Colts and the four time defending champion Pembroke Lumber Kings, Pembroke drew first blood. On Sunday, Apr. 3, the Central Canada Hockey League finals opened at the Pembroke Memorial Arena with just over 1,900 on hand to witness the event. Play was very cautious in the first period as neither team wanted to make a mistake and give the other an advantage. Each only had five shots on goal in the frame. The Kings opened the scoring at 6:39 of the second with a shorthanded goal. Pembroke’s Stephen Farrell, a former member of the Kemptville 73’s, fed the puck to Jonathan Milley who was able to get behind the Cornwall defence and beat Colts goaltender Pete Karvouniaris. One minute later, Stefan Salituro put the Kings up 2-0. Tyler Tosunian and Kyle Just picked up the assists. There was no scoring in the third period. Francis Dupuis earned the shutout. After being shut out in game one, the high-scoring Colts needed a big re-

sponse in game two. In front of 1,724 hockey fans at the Ed Lumley Arena on Wednesday, Apr. 6, that was exactly what they got. Just 1:32 into the game, the Colts Sean Blunden, from Tyson Spink and Jacob Laliberte, beat Kings goalie, Francis Dupuis. Cornwall also notched the second goal of the game when Tyson Spink scored at the 10:32 mark. Tylor Spink and Jacob Laliberte assisted. The Colts held the Kings to just three shots in the first period. In the second, Cornwall added another goal to take a 3-0 lead. Ty Perry was credited with the goal with assists from Michael Rowbotham, another former member of the Kemptville 73’s, and Billy Ulrick. Again, there was no scoring in the third period. This time, Pete Karvouniaris earned the shutout. The series returned to Pembroke for game three on Friday, Apr. 8. With both teams taking turns displaying dominance in the first two games, the question was what to expect in game three. Displaying more of the tenacious defensive play that had become the norm, the first period was scoreless. For the second time in three games, the Kings

opened the scoring with a short-handed goal. At the 2:50 mark of the second, Matthew Peca got the puck past Cornwall’s Pete Karvouniaris for the first time in over five periods of play. The last goal scored on him was in the second period of game one. Jonathan Milley and Ben Reinhardt assisted on the goal. The third opened with the Colts on the power play. At 0:56, Kyle Baun tied the game with an unassisted goal. Regulation time ended with the teams tied at 1. The first overtime period solved nothing. The second overtime period was heading in the same direction. With 1:15 left, Kyle Just rang up the win for the Kings. The OT winner was set up by Tyler Tosunian and Stefan Salituro. The game lasted almost three and half hours and the 2,043 hockey fans witnessed an unbelievable display of talent. Both goaltenders, Francis Dupuis and Pete Karvouniaris were named game stars. With the Kings leading the series 2-1 game four goes in Cornwall on Monday, Apr. 11, game five in Pembroke on Wednesday, Apr. 13 and game six, if necessary, in Cornwall on Thursday, Apr. 14.

The TEAMCOOK ‘Goode Run” 2011 for O-YA Runners living in rural south Ottawa have always faced the same challenge: if you want to compete in a race, you have to drive into the City (or beyond) to do so. Well, not anymore! Spring 2011 marks the inaugural year of “The TEAMCOOK ‘Goode Run,” an Osgoode Village-based walk & run to raise money for The Osgoode Youth Association. “The ‘Goode Run” is expected to draw runners from across Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec to run on the newly developed Multi-Use Pathway constructed by The City of Ottawa on the former rail line through the historic Village of Osgoode. We are anticipating in excess of 300 runners to participate in this inaugural run. This event will welcome runners of all levels of activity and involvement by featuring a 2k family run along with 5k and 10k chip-timed races. The focus of “The TEAMCOOK ‘Goode Run” will be youth fitness and activity, as well as family participation. It is our goal to have every family in the Village participating in some way.
