Incumbent Conservative MP Gord Brown handily won reelection in Leeds and Grenville on Monday night, claiming over 60 per cent of the vote in his fourth straight win. Voters across the country were evidently impressed by the Conservative government’s economic performance, as the electorate returned Prime Minister Stephen Harper to Parliament with the strong majority government he had asked for during the campaign. Brown credited his success to his track record of working for the people of Leeds and Grenville, mentioning the infrastructure projects he helped secure for the riding through the Economic Action Plan and his tough-on-crime stance as key elements of his successful campaign. “This is really a validation from the people of my riding. I’m humbled by their support, and I’ll continue to do what I’ve been doing, and support important things like the Eastern Ontario Development Program, and get back to work tomorrow,” Brown said at his Brockville campaign office.

side. “I have such wonderful support from my staff, team and my wife Frances,” he said. The local issues in the riding overshadowed many of the national ones with job creation being a number one item for all of the candidates to handle during the 2011 election campaign. The Conservative incumbent Lauzon had tried to remind voters of how in the bigger picture, the important issue was trust and a track record of good financial management as well as a practical budget that he felt should have been passed. He said on election night that his government would resubmit the budget they never had a chance to see passed. He had stated during the campaign he felt many of the concerns that the Liberal and NDP party wanted addressed in the budget were in fact looked after. “I had thought they would have let the budget pass and then try to defeat the government a few months later,” he said explaining that defeating government was fair play in a democracy but accepting the budget would have helped so many Canadians.

With the Conservative victory it appears Canadians are willing to give embattled Conservative leader Stephen Harper a real chance to run Canada his way. This will be Guy Lauzon’s fourth time at the bat hitting a home run out of the park. “I am feeling absolutely wonderful,” Lauzon said while his supporters cheered on the television broadcast of his victory. This election like all of Lauzon’s other ones featured a never ending visit to as many residents of SD&SG as he could manage. “You are always concerned,” he said. As the 2011 election campaign got under way Lauzon admitted that he had great respect for the other candidates and was going to have to work hard to keep voters on

Lauzon began his run as the SD&SG Member of Parliament back in 2004. Then as now, his closet rival was a Liberal. In 2004 he received 21,678 votes taking 44.85 per cent of the vote compared to 36.78 per cent for Liberal candidate Bob Kilger. In 2006 Canadians returned to the polls and Lauzon came away with the most votes with a whopping 28,014 votes or 54. 73 per cent of the vote. Liberal candidate Tom Manly mustered 13,906 votes and dropped to 17.17 per cent. The Conservatives in SD&SG have consistently moved forward leaving most opponents behind. In 2008 Lauzon once again won the riding, this time with 25,846 votes and 57.34 per cent of the riding’s voters. While the number of
Canadians taking the time to vote has been decreasing across the country since 1997, votes for Lauzon have increased. National voter turnout from 2000 to 2008 dropped from 61.2 percent down to 58.8 percent. During the 2011 campaign there was, for the most part, reasonable banter between candidates. A popular topic to debate was the reason behind the election. Lauzon, then and now, feels the other parties did not behave responsibly. One of his main concerns, and a local issue that appeared at every all-candidates meeting has been job creation. He said that the government’s budget included several incentives designed to create jobs in the small business sector. He stands by the

Description of Lands:
Brown takes clear election victory Continued from the front He identified the Port of Prescott, the Maritime Discovery Centre in Brockville, the Johnstown ethanol plant, and continuing infrastructure projects as some of his areas of focus going forward. Vote splitting between the Liberals and NDP was not a factor in Leeds and Grenville, as Brown’s vote share far outpaced the Liberal and NDP percentages combined. Liberal candidate Marjory Loveys tried to appeal to a wide swath of voters, from social conservatives to fiscally minded progressives, but her call for a strong centrist govern-
ment was largely ignored by the electorate, who gave her just under 16 per cent of the vote. Green Party candidate Mary Slade placed a distant fourth, with approximately 5 per cent of the vote. In 2008, Brown claimed 58.4 per cent to Loveys’ 17.2 per cent. Addressing his cheering campaign volunteers, Brown said the Conservative majority government would quickly move to table the budget and pass all crime legislation that had been blocked by the opposition parties. He said that lowering taxes, creating jobs, preventing elder abuse, supporting victims of crime as opposed to criminals,

Poilievre wins another majority
DANIEL NUGENT-BOWMAN firstname.lastname@example.org
After securing his fourth straight seat in Nepean-Carleton on May 2, Pierre Poilievre thought the message from voters was crystal clear. “It’s a signal that they want us to continue to deliver on results,” the Conservative MP said after addressing the crowd of nearly 100 people at Greenfield’s Pub in Barrhaven.

Compromise a must for Tories Stephen Harper’s appeal to the voters to deliver him a majority government did not fall on deaf ears. The Conservatives picked up 166 seats, with 70,311 of 71,513 polls reporting – an increase of 23 seats. The Tory tide once again swept across Ottawa, with only David McGuinty and Mauril Belanger holding on to Liberal seats in Ottawa South and Ottawa-Vanier. The anticipated surge of NDP support did not hurt the Tories, except in a few ridings in Quebec, where most of the seats picked up by the party were taken from the Liberals. During the campaign, the prime minister warned Canadians that a minority Tory government couldn’t hold on to power and would fall prey to a coalition of the Liberals, NDP or potentially the Bloc Quebecois. Harper’s predictions were alarming with warnings of hits to the financial markets, deficit spending and possibly reopening the Constitution for another divisive debate that nobody wanted. Canadians obviously listened, and Harper no longer faces the spectre of having to compromise or work to achieve consensus with the
opposition. But is that necessarily a good thing? Yes, a majority government will give the Tories the tools to pass legislation that could have been delayed by a united opposition. And as one Tory MP pointed out, a majority win will allow the Conservatives to stand down from continuous preparation for yet another election, and focus on the task of governing. But when they were a minority government, the Tories were forced to listen to the ideas of other parties and to compromise. The politics of consensus forces a leader to sift through the ideas of competing parties and incorporate the best parts within his or her own policies. We hope winning a majority won’t go Harper’s head. The Tories often use the word “arrogance” to explain the federal Liberals fall in fortune, they might want to avoid a similar accusation over the next four years. Be a good prime minister, Harper. Listen to other ideas, use the best ones. Remember, in a democracy we elect a prime minister, we don’t anoint a king
A winter game for all seasons Many factors go into making Canada the unique country it is, as recent political events have shown. On a non-political level, we have Tim Hortons and the Group of Seven and large group of comedians located in the United States. We have football with three downs. We have three coasts and at least two seasons. We have many languages and very few species of deadly snakes. We have movie theatres that don’t show Canadian movies. Oh, wait, other countries have those too. One of the other non-political things that has been commented upon lately is that fact that our hockey season, the season for a winter game played on ice, now lasts into June. In fact, one estimate puts the last possible Stanley Cup final game as late as June 18. This has consequences that go far beyond sport. Coupled with daylight saving time, it means that many Canadians will be indoors in the air-conditioning watching television while the sun is still shining and they could be outside playing games and getting fit. It also means that a goodly percentage of Canadians, those who avidly follow playoff games played on the west coasts of Canada and the U.S., show up for
CHARLES GORDON Funny Town
work tired and grouchy, or not show up at all. Productivity, a major concern of newspaper columnists, declines. Furthermore, children of permissive parents who avidly follow games played on the west coast will be difficult in class unless, mercifully, they fall asleep. This may explain why our children are constantly outperformed by children who come from countries where there is no hockey. These are some of the important social and economic consequences of our obsession with hockey and the hockey owners’ obsession with dragging out the season as long as possible in order to make more money. As we see from the world news, in most other countries, spring is a time for getting the crops in, playing baseball and staging insurrections. Not here. Which

just goes to show that there is more to the Canadian identity than an unelected Senate and the notwithstanding clause. If the hockey nuttiness ended here, you could put it down to a mild case of national eccentricity — people staying up too late, watching TV when they could be strolling in the spring evening air when it’s not raining. But, unfortunately, there is more to it. For at the same time as the rest of the world is having revolutions, spring planting and baseball games, those Canadians who venture outdoors, are playing hockey. But they’re not playing hockey with a ice and a puck. They’re playing hockey with pavement and a ball. Ball hockey interest peaks in the spring because all those boys and girls and their parents want to try out the moves they see on television, except for the hitting from behind and elbows to the head. So out they go onto the street, between televised games, just as the professional hockey season is winding down and many hockey players, in fact, are out on the golf course. This typically Canadian scene causes cars to be inconvenienced and the more fussy neighbours to be upset, leading in turn to another uniquely Canadian phenomenon — the complaint

to city hall and the police raid on street hockey nets. If you lived in Lusaka, Jakarta or Paris, you would not be aware of any of this. The streets of those cities are notable for their absence of hockey nets. In Canada, the police raids on outdoor hockey nets lead to letters to the editor, phone calls to talk radio shows and a lot of public hand-wringing generally. The rights of kids (and their parents) to have fun are weighed against the right of private property and a uniquely Canadian philosophical battle ensues. This will last until the real hockey season begins again and everybody goes back inside.

Kemptville Advance - MAY 05, 2011
“Volunteers don’t get paid, not because they’re worthless, but because they’re priceless,” said North Grenville Mayor David Gordon as he opened the 2011 Civic Awards ceremony at the Municipal Centre last Tuesday.They were fitting words for an evening dedicated to recognizing the many volunteers who give of their time and talents to support a vast number of worthy causes. Council presented “exemplary work in the community” awards to Marguerite (Maggie) Boyer and the Room to Read Fundraising Committee. Nineteen-yearold Jennifer Lowe received a youth award, as did the Kemptville Rotary Club. Colleen Morris-Wilson, chair of the selection committee, praised the four “quality nominations” for their community service. Gordon called Maggie Boyer “the oil that keeps the volunteer community running smoothly.” Boyer, a freelance philanthropist who runs an art studio in Kemptville, quietly lends her artistic, printing and advertising talents to many groups. Visual reminders of Boyer’s generosity are everywhere. She designed and printed the advertising for the Friends of the Library book sale and Follies event, and sketched and donated the picture of Sarah Badgely that hangs in Sarah’s Corner of the library. The North Grenville Historical Society fundraising calendars hanging in many a kitchen were Boyer’s project from start to finish. She also donated a painting to the Kemptville Clinic, and many happy children spend Canada Day, the Dandelion Festival and other charity events sporting her colourful face paint. Boyer teaches art to the seniors at Bayfield Manor on a weekly basis, and offers free classes to the Kemptville Youth Centre and Holy Cross School. From finding housing for fire victims to peeling potatoes for a community dinner, “Maggie does her part and often catches the loose ends left by others,” Gordon said. The Room to Read Fundraising Committee was organized in August 2008 to raise $750,000 for the new North Grenville Public Library. “No mean feat when you consider that we were in the midst of a recession,” Gordon said. Thanks to hundreds of meetings and presentations to potential donors, along
with many fundraisers organized by “a literal army of volunteers,” the group’s legacy will be the 10,000 square foot library in downtown Kemptville, scheduled to officially open on May 28. The library will offer programs for seniors, teens and children, and the expanded hours are expected to aid the revitalization of the downtown core and spur increased interest in the library system. The past and present members of the committee are Dr. George Fisher and Norma Fisher (honourary co-chairs), Chair Bill McElrea, Harry Pratt, Barbara Rousseau, Margret Norenberg, Wayne Reed, Gerald Tallman, Ed Chajkowski, Chal Conn, and Roberta Russell. Jennifer Lowe’s busy volunteer schedule proves that giving back to the community isn’t just for established professionals or retirees. Lowe has been a fixture at Kemptville Campus community events since starting there as a co-op student in the winter of 2009. She is one of the unsung, behind the scenes workers that every organization relies on for success, always willing to set up, clean up, and help run events like the Canada Day celebrations and youth camp trade shows. Lowe also volunteered extensively with the Kemptville Youth Centre, helping staff move into the new office, deliver flyers, paint faces at KYC events, compile Salvation Army hampers, and generally add her friendly disposition to the group’s efforts. “Jennifer is now working at Wal-Mart, yet she still continues to contact the Campus every few months to see if there are any events or activities she can help with. How many teenagers in this day and age will take the time to do this?” Gordon asked. The Kemptville Rotary Club received a youth award for their long term support of the Kemptville Youth Centre. Rotary members helped the youth centre acquire and renovate their new building in Kemptville, and continue to volunteer their time and expertise on the KYC building committee and board of directors. Gordon called Rotary’s mentorship of the youth centre “a demonstration of the spirit of volunteering.” Many Rotarians were on hand for the presentation. “Rotary is a real team effort,” said president Jennifer Franssen. The mayor thanked all award recipients for giving to their community “from the heart.”

Last June, the Greers decided bring Misha over for a full year so he could attend Mother Teresa Catholic High School’s English as a Second Language program. something,” Misha said. Although it took nine months to secure the proper documentation – including a letter from Slava denouncing fears from both governments that the Greers were trying to adopt him – Misha would be permitted to come. “We don’t have to adopt him to consider him part of the family,” Cassandra said while sitting beside Misha at the family’s dinner table. “Once he got off the plane, he was like one of us.” Cassandra will never forget the first time Misha got off the plane and into their care six years ago. She first found out OVACC when her daughter, Grace, now eight, was in nursery school in Kemptville. One of Grace’s teachers was selling baskets in support of the 20year organization and, once she learned that 100 per cent of the proceeds from every fundraiser get reinvested, she immediately signed up for a membership. (She knew her husband, Glen, would be onboard, she said). Knowing about the 1986 nuclear explosion and its aftermath, Cassandra was eager to assist. But it wasn’t until she saw Misha that she realized how important it was to give children a reprieve from Belarus. “I don’t know how to explain it,” she said, noting Misha’s greyish skin tone attributed from the disaster’s radiation upon arrival. “They’re different when they leave.”
In Misha’s first summer with the Greers, it took a little time to adjust. Not having a bounty of fresh fruits back home, Misha and another OVACC child who was staying with a family friend ate seven kilograms worth of grapes over a one weekend. Because Misha’s verbal communication skills in English were poor, Cassandra and Glen would have to write out daily instructions for him. Due to the school’s multicultural nature, Misha is getting a whole new perspective. Aside from learning Canadian games like hockey and football and honing his math skills, Misha has been able to learn from his teacher, who is from Poland, and his two best friends, who are from Mexico and Thailand. “The cultural differences are immeasurable,” Cassandra said, noting Misha had never seen a Muslim before. And thanks to Mother Teresa’s English as a Second Language Program, Misha has vastly improved his language skills. Now, he speaks regularly with some new friends who speak Russian, but thinks mostly in English. “Sometimes I can’t understand one word,” he said recalling the time he forget the Russian word for “helmet.” What Misha won’t ever forget is home. He left behind Slava and his two brothers Jenya, 16, and Fedya, 13 – who has
ghetti dinner, which raised between $1,800 and $2,000 – enough to cover the return airfare costs. Soon after, Cassandra’s youngest daughter Cecille, 4, was with a friend who saw Misha for the first time. When the little girl asked who Misha was, Cecille’s answer was simple. “That’s my brother,” she said, with no further explanation. “He’s always going to have a home here,” Cassandra said.

Pulling off of Fourth Line Road down a long dirt driveway, very little stands out about their large, redbrick farmhouse – at least in comparison with most other farmhouses. A wooden barn and work shed appear straight ahead and a hectare-sized field is just to the right, graced by the North Gower family’s horses. But, entering into the house, it’s easy to see why the Greer family stands out. Through the Ottawa Valley Aid for Chernobyl Children (OVACC), the family has been hosting Misha Sachanka – a 15-year-old from Mozyr, Belarus – for parts of the past six years. The goal of the non-profit organization is to allow Belarusian children to experience a five-to-10-week respite visit, allowing them an escape from a country still ravaged by radiation. April 26 marks the 25th anniversary of the nuclear explosion in Chernobyl. Although the Greers had been bringing Misha to their red-brick farmhouse for summers since he was nine, they decided to take things one step further. Last June, the family – led by mother, Cassandra – brought Misha to North Gower on a more permanent basis. Cassandra, local president of the Ottawa Professional Fire Fighters Association, decided she wanted to have Misha attend Barrhaven’s Mother Teresa Catholic High School to open his eyes to new experiences. Misha’s father, Slava, liked the idea too. “He said, ‘You can go to Canada. You can see the world.’ Then I can know
recognized by the Belrussian government because he’s age appropriate for college there, Misha isn’t concerned. From experiencing his first indoor toilet to trying new sports and riding horses, to having some of Cassandra’s famous pancakes and lasagna, coming to Canada has been worth it. “I’ve never tried that stuff before,” he said with a smile. Misha pitched in with the latest OVACC spa-

Down syndrome. (His mother, Sveta, died from a leukemia caused by radiation in July 2009, while Misha was in North Gower. It was the same day that Cassandra’s mother died). Misha worked odd jobs around the farm and for Glen’s cabinetmaking business so he could earn a new computer, which he uses to communicate with his family through Skype. “For the family it must be a difficult choice but just the trust they have in Canadians is unbelievable,” Cassandra said. After seeing Fedya jump around on the screen, Misha is looking forward to going home for the summer. The Greers are looking to bring Misha back for another school year in the fall.

The Kemptville District Hospital has been growing in leaps and bound over the last few years. This past March, the hospital brought Joe Buckle on board as their new Senior Director of Operations and Chief Privacy Officer. The position is a signal that the hospital is ready to take on the next phase of its development. The hospital has taken on a role that complements the growing North Gren-
ville community and at the same time shares the vision of an efficient and effective area health care provider with residents. The Kemptville District Hospital is destined to become a hub for medical care and health services in the area. During the 50th anniversary of the hospital in 2010, people told tales of driving up and down country roads raising five dollars at a time from farmhouse after farmhouse. Since then the hospital has completed a $25 million redevelopment

project, added $2 million to their payroll in the last year. They plan to add more to their list of achievements before the year is out. â€œI am looking after the day to day operation of the hospital,â€? explained Buckle. The new operations director spent an interesting and colourful 31 years with the RCMP. He started out his career with a masterâ€™s degree in physical chemistry and became a forensic scientist with the RCMP. â€œThe challenge was to link a criminal to a crime scene,â€? he explained. Eventually he would look after six forensic laboratories across Canada. He rose to the position of Chief of National Police Services and in 2005 received an award from the prime minister for the work he was doing in forensic research. At the same time, he was working as the RCMPâ€™s chief information officer. Now living out-
side Winchester with his wife Christine, and nearing retirement from the RCMP, he was offered the job of director of operations at the hospital. The offer was one he could not refuse. All of that managing, research and intense work experience made Buckle the perfect candidate for the job. Being one of the driving forces behind the hospitalâ€™s next phase called for a unique individual. â€œI like to get in and get my hands dirty,â€? said Buckle. There were other attractions for the director of operations to consider when he was asked to come to the hospital. â€œI love this town,â€? he said. â€œI was impressed with what the hospitalâ€™s team had accomplished and I wanted a job where I could make a difference.â€? He said his role is to ensure that the hospital remained vibrant and strong. â€œI really feel this is my dream job,â€? he said. â€œI had a wonderful job and enjoyed all kinds of challenges.â€? He mentioned a few current challenges facing the hospital and its team. â€œWe want to get the legacy hospital
on track,â€? said Buckle. He believes the hospital has to offer a work and health care environment that patients and employees feel comfortable in. The hospital is in the middle of negotiations with the Ottawa hospitals and the Champlain LHIN for more services. They are also moving towards in-patient orthopedic surgery. As a consequence, the hospital will have to find a way to generate more bed space. Other initiatives include senior citizen housing, long-term care site potential, and the Home to Hospice cottage site project. The hospital is involved in the Rideau Valley Health Servicesâ€™ multi-provider and private service centre in Barrhaven. With all that is going on, and with the hospitalâ€™s continuing growth, it needed to dedicate itself to maintaining its vision while operating an efficient health care service. From the new director of operationâ€™s perspective, a few extra hands on the wheel will make all the difference.

Once you decide something is precious, you have to look after it. That is exactly the sentiments of all of the municipalities who share history with the Rideau Canal. In 2007, the more than 200 kilometer long early 19th century monumental construction project was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The canal runs from Ottawa south to Kingston Harbor and includes the Rideau and Cataraqui Rivers. Once recognized as a heritage site, something had to be done to look after it for the future. The Rideau Corridor Landscape Strategy, RCLS has been created to do just that. The Mayor of MerrickvilleWolford Douglas Struthers is the chair of the RCLS steering committee. “It will be extremely important for community development and enrichment,” said Struthers. The Rideau Canal corridor has been given more than its share of honours. It has been declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, a Canadian Heritage river, a national historic site and is the second most authentic, sustainable destination in the world, according to a National Geographical Society survey in 2008. Looking after a national treasure is not easy especially one that crosses travels though 13 municipalities, eight provincial ministries and two conservation authorities, three federal agencies as well as many active not for profit organizations and countless private property owners and businesses. Struthers explained, “Everyone is doing a lot of things. We should be shar-
ing information with others.” A recommendation by the world heritage organization states, “that following the completion of the study of the visual setting of the canal, consideration is given to strengthening its visual protection outside the buffer zone, in order to ensure the visual values of the setting are protected alongside environmental values.” There is a never-ending series of challenges facing the river custodians such as residential growth, commercial operations and energy production and infrastructure such as bridge crossings and transit tunnels. Since the creation of the steering committee in 2010, there have been seven meetings. The committee has managed to create a planners technical advisory group and an extensive review of the existing planning policies along the canal as well as all of the regulations that affect it. The committee looked at the heritage sites’ strengths, weakness and opportunities. “The RCLS is a significant ground breaking project,” said Struthers. “It is a world –class feature that deserves worldclass research and analysis.” A provincial policy statement has been sent to the province and a geo-data mapping project was conducted by the City of Ottawa. The committee has come up with a tentative work plan to carry out a landscape character assessment and there has been a motion to create a community advisory committee. “There has not been a community consultation committee set up at this time,” said Struthers. The RCLS committee is in the process of determining their frame of reference before they go ahead start any kind of community consultation process. Struthers said that as the
were respected. He explained that the Rideau Canal did not run through all of the various
communities along its route but rather the canal is part of each community.

Now that the former Acton’s Corners schoolhouse has been sold, attention turns to another of the municipality’s “surplus” heritage buildings – the Oxford-on-Rideau Township Hall, a National Historic Site built in 1875 that will soon be vacant when the library branch situated there closes and merges with the new North Grenville Public Library in Kemptville. Last Wednesday, John Barclay of Triune Arts, a charitable theatre and film group, and Oxford Mills Community Association chaired an open meeting at Maplewood Hall in Oxford Mills, next door to the township hall, to gauge public interest in leasing the 4,000 square foot, two-storey building and making it an arts and community centre. “No single arts group can take on a lease arrangement for this beautiful historic building by themselves – that’s why we have to come together, join forces and coordinate our efforts if we want to have the affordable space we need to create, develop, rehearse and showcase the creative talent in our community,” Barclay said. The second floor of the hall, where the township of Oxford-on-Rideau once held council meetings, is currently used as a prop and costume storage area by the Kemptville Players, who were represented at the meeting, along with delegates from several art galleries (including Studio 6, which will soon leave its Kemptville location and is looking for a permanent home after a summer stint in North Gower), and several members of the public. Barclay mentioned that the North Grenville Community Choir and Kemptville Youth Music Theatre had previously expressed interest in sharing the space. Any plan would have to be culturally and economically viable, said Janak Alford, a recent Masters graduate of the
Carleton School of Architecture, who has previously been involved in determining how North Grenville’s heritage properties could be maintained as heritage buildings but also generate revenue as functioning community spaces. Alford and three of his colleagues stressed that the township hall should become “dynamic and collapsible,” so that what is a film studio or live theatre space one week could be re-partitioned into a small business start-up office, meeting room or sports facility the next. A design plan that would allow one room to be an art gallery during the summer season, and then convert to a profit-making studio once tourism dries up, would help the building “earn its keep” and be marketable to the community and surrounding area, Alford said. Jim Devette of the Oxford Mills Community Association – the small but dedicated group that maintains Maplewood – thinks there could be a “synergy” between the two buildings, in the form of shared programming or even a museum space. Barclay mused about a community kitchen. While any new owners would have to undertake some structural repairs, such as repointing, the former township hall is in much better shape than the Acton’s Corners building was in terms of accessibility and fitness for immediate use, as it has been a working library for years, Alford noted. Prospective owners would also need to find the money for a triple net lease, in which the municipality would retain the building, but the lessee would pay all utilities costs, including a hefty heating bill, plus a nominal rental fee that the municipality would put into a capital reserve fund, should for example the roof need to be repaired. Coun. Tim Sutton, who attended Wednesday’s meeting, likes the idea of the township hall remaining a community space. “I’d like to make sure this building is
kept in some way, shape or form under public ownership,” Sutton told the small audience. He expects the municipality will issue a call for expressions of interest in the township hall in “early summer,” adding that it might be possible for a portion of the tax revenue from the Wal-Mart and Colonnade development to go toward the hall. “It would be like the new helping the old,” he said. Coun. Barb Tobin provided what she called “a reality check” by detailing the costs required to run the building. She worried that it was “five outstanding people” from the Oxford Mills Community Association keeping Maplewood alive, and that any group looking to oversee the township hall would have to get a board of directors and attract more people to the team before a funding agency would support them. But, she added, municipal staff would be glad to listen to proposals and advise any community group on its proposal. Both councillors agreed that the municipality was likely uninterested in selling the building outright, partly because the property includes a second driveway entrance to the large parking garage for town vehicles located in the rear lot. Barclay appreciated the councillors’ presence and insight, adding that the decades-long track record of his Triune group could provide the proposed confederation with board members and legitimacy. He also hoped some community money could be used as evidence of local support to “leverage” heritage grant money from businesses and other levels of government. There are many challenges ahead for this burgeoning coalition, and many questions to be answered before the fate of the Oxford-on-Rideau Township Hall is known. But the essential ingredient – the commitment to keep this heritage building in community hands – seems to be in place.

STAFF The snow has finally left, the skies are clear and area residents are enjoying doubledigit temperatures. Its time for the Isle in the River Review (ITR) spring production. ITR is gearing up for another great comedy performance. In a production press release director Bill Steele stated, “The title role is the ghost of a dead guy who refuses to let go of his beloved wife.” He added, “Obviously, that’s crazy, but it’s
also very romantic. The audience will not be disappointed.” Andrea Jermacans takes on the role of Bethany. She, along with her fiancé Floyd played by Len Trembley, a dentist, have plans to settle down, buy a house and raise a family. Verna, Floyd’s over-bearing mother has convinced Bethany to sell an abandoned hunting lodge that used to belong to Bethany’s dead husband Chance played by Davis Jermacans. But Bethany – and
her resolve – begins to unravel when she discovers that Chance – or at least his ghost – is still very much a tenant at the lodge. To complicate matters, only she can see him. Chance, is determined and stubborn. He refuses to let death get in the way of him and Bethany staying together. The game is on as Chance tries to find a way to woo Bethany and get rid of Floyd. Not to be taken for granted, Bethany hires Crystal, played by Elizabeth Mc-
Gregor, a psychic who tries to exorcise the stubborn ghost. When Adam Lucas, played by André Dimitrijevic, Chance’s former accountant and hopeful new lodge owner, shows up unexpectedly, it becomes clear that both he and Chance know something about the lodge that the others don’t – and they’ll do anything to have it. One hilarious misunderstanding after another leave the characters second guessing their own – and each other’s – true feelings. Performances run May 6, 12, 13, and 14

trimmer (or whippersnipper as I call it) so I decided to spend a little more money and purchase a straight Cub Cadet trimmer. Little did I know that this one purchase would prove to be one of the best household purchases I have made. I had a harness installed to help with my bad arm which gets sore for days when any prolonged vibration is subjected to it. The harness also helps carry the load so there is less strain on my arm. The trimmer works like a charm and the easy start feature is great – one pull and we’re going. I also went with a higher end model so that I did not have to mix gas and oil together which requires another gas can and proper mixing of the two. That spring I purchased a cultivator attachment for the trimmer which works perfectly. I just ﬁnished using the new attachment on our compost bins out back and it mixed everything just right. Now we can spread the mix on the gardens and start working towards ﬁlling up the composter again. The cultivator attachment snaps on in seconds and has 5” blades which work well in existing gardens. If you are planning to start a new
garden, I would recommend renting a tiller from First Stop Tool and Equipment Rental. First Stop carries all sizes and tillers are available at different hourly rentals so you can return it right after you are done. New for this year is the addition of the “Mini Chainsaw” with an 8’ exten-sion. If you have trees on your property and need to trim them back, then this is another wonderful attachment to have. The extension allows you to stay on the ground and reach up high. If you are a daredevil like me, you can use it on a ladder, but this is not recommended for safety reasons – most guys scoff at that but I nearly fell off myself and with an additional 8 foot chainsaw going on one end, it was a bit dicey on the way down so please use caution. So those are the attachments that I have tried that work for my garden but there are more. There are eight different tools that you can buy of which seven are for gardening and the warmer seasons and can be ordered from any small engine shop in the area. Most are below the $150 range so my investment in summer tools so far has been worth every penny. For anyone who is a moderate gardener, or even a little fanatical,
Home Generator Systems
this trimmer has become my personal outdoor “Swiss Army Knife” in that within seconds I can transform it into a new tool for the yard. What I like about it best is that the tools are always there when I feel like doing the work and the harness helps with the strain on the arm, neck and back. This is one investment that was well worth it. HDCC P.S. I also bought the snow thrower attachment which was perfect this winter for clearing the lane and pathways.

Garage sale helps women’s shelter STAFF Garage sale season is just around the corner, and bargain hunters looking to support a great cause while picking up secondhand treasures need look no fur-
ther than the National Garage Sale for Shelter, hosted by Royal LePage Gale Real Estate in Kemptville in support of Naomi’s Family Resource Centre, a women’s shelter in Winchester. The garage sale will take place May
million to help provide a safe haven and a fresh start for 30,000 women and children each year. Nationally, the garage sales brought in over $315,000 in 2010, more than doubling the 2009 total. The Kemptville office welcomes donations of gently used items to the office on May 7 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., and invites everyone to support this worthy cause by patronizing the sale. To learn more about the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation, visit royallepage.ca/ shelter. For more information about the garage sale in Kemptville, contact Kelly Baillie of Gale Real Estate at 613-258-1990 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Sea cadets on parade STAFF If the royal wedding didn’t satisfy your appetite for pomp and circumstance, there is another grand event taking place much closer to home. The Kemptville Branch of the Navy League of Canada and president Cdr. Donovan Arnaud CD (Ret’d) invites the community to the annual review of the cadets of the Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corps Defiant in the gymnasium of St. Michael Catholic High School on May 14 at 2 p.m. This is the second annual review for
High school wrestler pins bronze STAFF
the cadets. The sea cadets have enjoyed enthusiastic growth in the North Grenville area after their move to Kemptville from Morrisburg. The cadets will demonstrate their drill routines and marching expertise under the careful eye of guest reviewing officer Captain Stephen King. Join the families and friends of the cadets, along with members of the Canadian Forces and senior officials from the Ontario Division of the Navy League of Canada, in celebrating the achievement of these dedicated young trainees. Refreshments will be served.
High school wrestler Kenneth Kaczkowski threw his weight around on the national stage at the Canadian National Wrestling Championships in Windsor earlier this month. Kaczkowski, a Grade 10 student at St. Michael in Kemptville, won the bronze medal in the 72 kg weight division. He lost only one match, in the final round, to
a wrestler from British Columbia. Over 600 male and female wrestlers from across Canada competed for the national titles in the cadet (ages 15-16) and juvenile (ages 17-18) categories. The high school wrestling season has ended, though St. Michael coach Tony Camillone is still holding practices for his elementary wrestlers slated to attend the Eastern Canadian Championships in early May.

Rideau Glen Ladies League hits the links STAFF The members of the Rideau Glen Ladies League teed off on the 2011 season last week with hopes that the “golf gods” would provide some dry weather during what is forecast to be a cool, rainy spring. Amid the excitement of getting back on the course after a long winter, the club mourns the passing of treasurer Maggie O’Brien and longtime members Lillian Thorpe and Mildred Lines. O’Brien, who died during the Easter weekend after a short battle with lung cancer, “had a great sense of humour and a memory like an elephant,” said club reporter Cecile Fortier. “She was a great support of both our Tuesday and Thursday league play. Always with a smile, ready to help anyone who needed her.” Thorpe and Lines were beloved members of the league, each with over 20 years experience on the golf course and working behind the scenes for the success of the club. Thorpe played in the Ladies League and the Seniors mix league, winning trophies as part of seniors’ foursomes. She won several putting contests, including “The Men Invite the Ladies” competition
just before she died. She and her husband Bill were awarded “Friends of Rideau Glen plaques” recognizing their contributions to supporting golf at Rideau Glen, and “The Thorpe Trophy” is awarded to the seniors group in their honour. “Lillian also enjoyed the social side of golf, always there with a smile greeting everybody and raising funds for the league through the sale of 50/50 tickets,” Fortier said. From 1993 to 2000, Lines won every tournament the league sponsored. The excellent golfer was club champion in 1993 and 1997, and served as past president of the Ladies League, along with other executive positions. “Mildred was a great lady, always with a smile” and an encouraging word for others in her foursome, “even though they were poor players compared to her,” Fortier said. “Being so humble and demure, you never knew about her exploits at golf unless you read the names on the trophies. “Both ladies will be missed by all.” Those interested in joining the league are invited to contact the clubhouse at Courtesy Photo 258-4404 or captain Nicole Deslauriers at The new Rideau Glen Ladies League executive for 2011-2012, back row left to right: 258-6995. past president Dianne Miller, social convener Nancy Porter, vice president Mary Shore, tournament coordinator Marg McCornock.

IN MEMORIAM ~ Crawford In fond and loving memory of the best husband and father in the world, Orval Crawford, who passed away May 3, 2003. Lonely is the home without him Life to us is not the same. All the world would be like Heaven If we could have him back again. Two tired eyes are sleeping Two willing hands are still The one who worked so hard for us Is resting at God’s will. Our lips cannot speak how we loved him Our hearts cannot tell what to say But God only knows how we miss him In our house that is lonely today. Too dearly loved to ever be forgotten by his loving wife Dolly and Family.

Birthing tales from the farm Here’s how it’s supposed to go. Ewe starts to feel a little pressure, takes herself to a quiet corner of the communal pen, lies down. She spends a few minutes in labour on her side, turning her nose skyward with every contraction. Then she will shift around and maybe stand up to give birth. Lamb emerges nose and two front hooves first. Slides out easily onto fresh, dry hay, and mother immediately begins clearing the airway and stimulating the lamb to breathe by licking its face clean. Ewe continues to lick the slimy wet off the lamb until it is completely clean and dry. Fluffy, even. Lamb, invigorated by all the massaging, is prompted to get up and seek out milk. It stands up, wanders to the back of its mother and, guided with gentle prodding from the mother’s nose, finds the milk and drinks. Mother stands stock still until baby has had its fill. Baby then wanders
The Accidental Farmwife Diana Fisher
into a warm dry corner of the pen, curls up and falls asleep. At this point I walk in, discover the newcomer, congratulate the mother and reward her with her own cordoned-off area of the pen and a handful of sweetfeed. It often does go like this, thankfully. But with 45 ewes scheduled to deliver, you can be sure there will be a few catastrophes in the bunch. These are what keep me awake at night.
In some cases, everything that can go wrong will go wrong. I will head out to the barn to feed and check on everyone and this is what I will find. A lamb is stuck halfway out of its mother, its second hoof pointing inward instead of out. Maybe the ewe has already been pushing for a while and she is exhausted, so she is lying down. On the unborn lamb’s head. I have to don armlength plastic gloves and assist. I don’t like this job. I’ve only done it once, when the Farmer wasn’t home. I worry I will cause a prolapse of the uterus. I think that’s what it’s called, when the ewe’s insides try to follow the birth on the way out. Nasty. I read on The Pioneer Woman website that she keeps a big bag of sugar at the ready during calving season. Apparently if a cow begins to prolapse, you can shrink the uterus by putting it in a bag of sugar, then gently push it
back into the mother. And hope for the best. I haven’t had to try this yet, and I’m hoping I never have to. Occasionally one of our ewes will deliver a stillborn. Sometimes these lambs are deformed in some way but usually they appear to be completely normal. Often they are big, beautiful babies that had a very good chance at survival, and there is no reason for them to be born dead. That’s frustrating. Our ewes normally have one or two lambs, but when they have multiples there can be serious problems. Often one will be deprived of oxygen and born a bit “stupid”, without a will to thrive. It’s heartbreaking, to watch these little ones fade away. Sometimes the lambs are born without the suck-
ling instinct. We’ve recently discovered that this is due to a lack of selenium in the soil in Eastern Ontario. An injection may be all it needs to begin suckling normally. Other times the mother just gives birth to the lamb and lets it lie there, neglected. The lamb needs to be dried off, stimulated to breathe and to eat. It’s very difficult for a farmer to replace the ewe at this stage. The lamb also needs the first milk, or colostrum, in its first 24 hours. If we can’t get the colostrum from its own mother, we will try to steal some from someone else who gave birth the same day, and feed it to the lamb with a syringe. This stuff is liquid gold. I have seen limp lambs come to life on colostrum. It’s an infusion
of energy. Currently I have two lambs that are pretty much completely dependent on me for their survival. One bites instead of sucking. I don’t blame her mother for running away when she approaches. The other lamb is very good at suckling, but her mother doesn’t have much milk. She will have to learn to steal from the other mothers when they have their heads in the feeder. We have to try to get these weak lambs through the next few weeks with milk replacer until they are old enough to survive on grain, hay and water. Lately, these are the two that keep me up at night. I haven’t named them, but I know them by their markings. They know me by the bottle in my hand, and the smell of milk.
