Fallen Five find a home in South Mountain JOSEPH MORIN

RETURNING HEROES South Mountain residents have found a new home for missing pictures of WWII veterans.


A chance conversation between South Mountain residents has blossomed into a historical moment for the village on June 9, 2011. While chatting with each other, Vince Morrow, a veteran of the Second World War, told friend Ed DiZazzo about the long lost memorial pictures of five South Mountain soldiers who had died during the Second World War. The photographs, all framed in wood and accompanied by a

special plaque, were last seen around 1999 in the former Odd Fellows Hall, now the home of Clear Cut Installations along the village’s main street. DiZazzo decided he would try to track the pictures down and find a home for them. “I thought it was wrong that the efforts of those young men and the sacrifice they made had been forgotten,” he said. The story of the missing fallen five begins on May 17, 1946. The residents of South Mountain and surrounding communities were gathered at their Odd Fellows Hall to honour the 36 local

men and one woman who had served in the Canadian Forces during the Second World War. Amid the celebrations was sadness for the five local men who did not return from the war. “They had given the ultimate sacrifice,” said DiZazzo. Their names are: Charles Gates, John Armstrong Johnston, Allen Clark, Bruce Ogilvie and Robert Armstrong. According to the records kept by the South Mountain Women’s Institute later found by DiZazzo, a memorial was created in the South Mountain Odd Fellow’s Hall. “The memorial stood for

over half a century in the hall as a testimonial to their valour,” explained DiZazzo. Later when the building was sold in 1999 a new home for the pictures could not be found and they vanished. Dave Scharf is the secretary of the South Mountain Odd Fellows number 428. He became involved in the search for the pictures. “I remember when Angela Beking held an event in Winchester honouring the people involved in the world wars,” said Scharf. “She has asked all the people from the area to bring in their memorabilia.” VETERANS see page 22

material. · A public-private partnership between the municipality and the private sector, which would share costs and divide the organic material. · Outsource the entire operation to a private contractor that would truck the waste to a separate site for organic composting. The committee is looking for feedback from council to help focus its work in nailing down the final plan. Specifically, they hope to gauge council’s “appetite for capital costs,” said Ward. In Perth, where the municipality has run an organic diversion program for almost a decade at very little cost, composting takes place on one acre of municipal land, and staff devote just 260 backhoe hours each year to keep the system going, with no additional employees needed. Coun. Terry Butler sees great potential for organic waste diversion in

urban areas. Each week, an organic farmer hauls over 100 pounds of foodstuffs from Butler’s restaurant in downtown Kemptville, meaning the business saves on bag tags, and the municipality has less waste to ship to the landfill. “Eventually, (organic diversion) will be a savings to the tax rate,” Butler said, adding that the University of Guelph Kemptville Campus could be brought in as a partner. Mayor David Gordon wondered if the system would accommodate rural and urban needs. “I’m a composter – I don’t want to give up my organic (waste), because I love my black soil. And I know quite a few people like that,” Gordon said. Coun. Tim Sutton worried about the high cost of driving municipal trucks through the countryside to collect pails of organic waste. Ward agreed that it might not be cost effective to collect organic waste in rural areas, especially if farmers already compost their food scraps. He suggested a tiered collection system that would charge rural North Grenville District High School and urban users based on the frequency and nature of the collection. But, he said, “We know we’re Wednesday, June 29th, 2011 4:00 p.m. never going to achieve a 60 per cent diversion rate as a municipality if we don’t have an organic Location: N.G.D.H.S. Gymnasium waste diversion program that in304 Prescott Street cludes everybody.” Ward acknowledged that garKemptville, Ontario bage had the potential to become 613-258-3481 a “hot potato” issue that councillors might not want to address unVisit our website at til after the next municipal election. But he thinks the ideal time Principal Steve Sharp Vice-Principal Dale Dixon to make the move to organic collection would be November 2014, when the current waste collection contract is due to expire. 471618-23-11

Commencement 2011



It seems all but inevitable that organic waste collection will come to North Grenville in the not too distant future. What is less certain is who will pay for it. Sean Ward and Samantha Rivet of the volunteer Waste Reduction Committee presented council with a report on the state of waste removal in North Grenville at the final Committee of the Whole meeting in May. The good news first: we’re using our blue bins. Residents who faithfully recycle cans, bottles and paper products are currently diverting 20.5 per cent of total waste. But recycling alone won’t divert many trucks from the landfill. Twenty five per cent “is the most you could squeeze from the blue box for diversion,” said Ward, a target he thinks is attainable with a little more education as to what items can be recycled. To that end, the committee will improve the municipality’s website, host seminars and appear at special events to help residents get the most out of their blue bin. “The next hurdle has to be the organic (waste),” Ward said. “That’ll bring us up to 60 per cent diversion as a municipality, which is the standard in the province.” According to the committee’s most recent waste audit, organic waste makes up 29 per cent of the total volume collected in North Grenville. The committee has been studying options for organic waste diversion and researching how municipalities of similar size have tackled the problem. Rivet and Ward laid out three options for council to consider: · The municipality runs its own organic waster removal program, with municipal employees and resources used to collect and dispose of the waste

The Lions also raised $50,000 for the North Grenville Municipal Centre. The club continues to support projects such as Camp Quality, a summer

camp for children with cancer. Members go to the camp each year to do a corn roast and barbecue and play with the children. They remain involved in the Canada Day celebrations, the Christmas parade, and the Dandelion Festival. Profits from the sale of the Lions Easter bunnies are turned over to the

Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. To date they have given $25,000. Forbes points out that the reason for starting the club 53 years ago have not changed. “The Lions Club has worked hard to maintain the vision that those men had, and are working hard to live up to the Lion’s Motto, ‘We Serve,’” he said.

There has never been a time in North Grenville when helping out your neighbour was as important as it is now. The many great service clubs in the area do what they can to help out. One group, the Kemptville Lions Club, has made giving a tradition in their community. The club’s involvement with the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB) dates back to 1959. From the early 60s to the mid 90s, the club raised more than $1 million for the CNIB. These days, the club is busy with a number of projects including continuing their eye care program in Guyana. The Lions Club has made 18 trips to different places around the world including Guyana, Trinidad and Tobago, Grenada and Belize. “A community would be a lesser place without service clubs,” said Lions president Alan Forbes. While membership in many service clubs in communities across Ontario has weakened, the Kemptville Lions Club with a membership of 27 is going strong. “Service clubs are in decline but we have four new members this year,” said Forbes, adding “I have been very fortunate to be with them for 42 years.” The Kemptville Lions Club does a great deal that goes unnoticed mainly because they like to help as quietly as possible in many cases. “There are a lot of things we do that we do not advertise,” said Forbes. He was referring to the club’s requests for monetary help for individuals who are in need. “The benefits you get with a service club far outweighs the time spent with it,” ex-

Their first charter night was on March 25, 1958. The first project the club took on was installing house numbers in the town. The club also started up a little league baseball association in Kemptville. “I can remember taking to the field wearing my Lions Club jersey in that league along with fellow Lion Gerald Christie. It was reported that 56 boys had been registered in the league,” said Forbes. Over the next 40 years, baseball became one of the major fundraising events for the Lions. Their eye care program has seen 27,000 patients and given out 24,000 pairs of glasses. They have sent a surgical team out to perform 263 cataract surgeries with patients receiving IOL or lens implants. They also supply glasses to the Canadian Armed Forces for distribution in Afghanistan. Over the past few years, the Kemptville Lions Club has man-

Close to home Defining the difference between urban and rural living gets easier with every community issue that pops up in North Grenville. For example, the residents of Glengables, a relatively new subdivision west of Kemptville, showed up at a recent North Grenville Committee of the Whole meeting. The 50 or so residents had issues with how the municipality was dealing with the residents’ expectations regarding parkland in their subdivision. The residents brought with them the anger and frustration they felt after finding out that they were not going to have the green space they expected when they moved into the their new homes. The group stated to councillors that they had paid a premium for homes near promised green space they now discovered could be lost without much consultation with the municipality. After explaining to councillors how they felt, and pointing out what they believed was faulty logic by the planning committee, the group was calmed by a promise by the municipality to make a better effort to find out how many residents wanted a park where they

lived. Traditionally North Grenville has sold land and used the proceeds for recreation and parks programs. That often means developing parkland in a different area than where a subdivision is. The Glengables residents at the meeting want the five per cent land donation from the developer to remain as parkland in their subdivision. The ending to the story has not been written yet, but wasn’t that easy? Can you imagine how different the meeting would have been had these same residents been trying to promote their cause in Ottawa in front of 21 city councillors? Who knows how many lawyers and city accountants would have been involved. The outcome would make an epic movie. Don’t forget the many OMB appeals that they would to muddle through after any agreement was made between residents and the city. One of the nicer aspects of rural living is rural government. A resident can actually go to a council meeting and expect to have his or her side of any story listened to and more often as not, acted on.


It’s not your grandfather’s NHL, Winnipeg Most people are pretty happy that Winnipeg has worked itself back into the National Hockey League. If there is a city where hockey belongs, Winnipeg is it. But amid the joyful voices are dire warnings. Winnipeg better sell out its arena every night, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman warns, or else. Winnipeg is too small, others say. No matter how much people love hockey in Winnipeg, there are not enough of them. Of course, we heard that lots in Ottawa when the Senators first began playing here almost 20 years ago. After the heady first couple of years, reality settled in. We had a losing team and people stopped going to see it. There were warnings then, some of them from the owner. People started going again, maybe because of the threats, but probably because the team began winning. When the team wins, the fans come. It’s a formula that works just about everywhere. When the team wins, other good things follow. Merchandise sold better. Corporate sponsors were easier to attract. The Senators began appearing on television more often, a helpful thing for the revenue stream. All of that can happen in Winnipeg, which is about the


same size as Ottawa, although there is a smaller population base to draw upon in the surrounding area. It will be great if it works in Winnipeg, if only to discredit the assumption that pro sports, and particularly hockey, have been working on for many years. That assumption is that population is more important than fan interest in determining a team’s future. Following that reasoning, the NHL expanded into a number of cities in which there was no interest in hockey but were really large. One of those cities is Atlanta, which has now lost its second franchise in 30 years (don’t forget the Flames, which moved to Calgary in the ‘80s.) The success of the new Winnipeg team will disprove the theory that hockey has become too big to survive in medium-

sized cities. Sure, it is big. The salaries are huge, and so are other costs. To pay them the teams set ticket prices discouragingly high. Can people in Winnipeg pay them? Apparently people in Ottawa can, although another losing season would be an interesting test. Those ticket prices are high. One report says that Winnipeg will have to charge an average of $80. Did you ever notice that if you tell someone you went to a Senators game, the question is inevitably: “Did you pay for your ticket?” It is always assumed that no one would go to the game unless they got a freebie somehow. Is everything getting too big? Look at all the people who are staying home, watching stuff on giant living room screens, rather than supporting the arts or their team. Stores are too big and too remote. The small one in your neighbourhood is gone. You have to get into your car to get to the large one. There are reports of a big cinema complex that will go into Lansdowne Park, causing smaller ones to be closed. So it goes. Even the Ottawa International Jazz Festival, which has always operated on a reasonable scale, has become too big. In order to attract enough paying custom-

ers to keep the festival going on its present scale, the festival has to abandon jazz on its main stage in prime time. If it works, is that good or bad? Returning to smaller times, is not an option, experts say. If the jazz festival goes small, it loses corporate and government sponsorship. If a neighbourhood bookstore stays small, people who want to buy knickknacks and scented candles won’t go there. Apparently a bookstore that doesn’t sell scented candles goes out of business. The odds are that pro hockey is never going back to the days of affordable salaries and affordable tickets. Welcome back to the NHL, Winnipeg. Think about

Cultivating character in the garden

Diana Fisher “I am inspired to journey out of doors and to travel inward simultaneously, because spring is everywhere. How can a person not garden in spring? Because every garden is a place of dreams and every gardener a dreamer, we should find nothing strange and much that is symbolic in our own and other gardens. Are the paths straight, or do they curve and wander? What colours appear consistently? Does the gardener worry about ripping out every last weed? When we want to learn something important about ourselves, it’s a good idea to go into our garden. We’ll find that we’ve planted a lot of answers there.” ~ Freeman Patterson, the garden. If our gardens are meant to be representative of ourselves, then it’s ok that mine is colourful, messy and overgrown. When I dream of the perfect garden, it is a waist-high riot of fragrant blooms. Like me, it isn’t too concerned about tidy appearances. In order to keep the perennials from being choked out, however, I do have to pull the occasional weed. As spring fades into summer once again, I am making a conscientious effort to get outside and work on the garden and flowerbeds while the getting is good. Early morning, before the heat beckons the mosquitoes, I head to the tomato patch, hoe in hand. I lay a satisfying “whack” at the base of a dandelion plant and another at the foot of a thistle. Where the grass has begun to creep over the edging, I hoist my fearsome “claw” tool, twisting havoc where it lands. Maybe that is why I have a slightly pulled rotator cuff: over-enthusiastic garden-clawing. At the front of the house, I survey the raised flowerbed of perennials. The daffodils didn’t like it here.

The Accidental Farmwife

bloomed out of the several dozen that I planted. I make a mental note to plant them down on the ground in the fall. In fact, I might do what I’ve seen on other farm properties, and just plant them scattered throughout the ditch at the road. I think that’s called “naturalizing”. Theoretically, I should be able to do this all over the lawn but knowing the Farmer, he would have them mowed down before they had a chance to bloom in spring. The bane of my gardening existence is the wild yellow chrysanthemum thing that someone once told me was called “the outhouse flower”. Good name. The Farmer loves it so it remains, but it needs to be kept under control. It grows five feet tall and spreads across the entire cultivated area if you let it, swallowing anything in its path. This year I pulled out a patch of the stuff and made room for my new plant, the Rose of Sharon. I ordered this from the Henry Fields seed catalogue and I’m very excited about watching it grow. Along the rock fence facing the house is my shade garden. Here I have six fat, leafy hostas of different varieties, along with columbine, bleeding heart, and perfumed bee balm. I love the names of these plants. Bee balm sounds so much better than Monarda, which is its horticultural name. I once bought a plant because of its name, which was “love lies bleeding”. I ripped it out after the first season, however, because it was so ugly. My guilty addition to this garden this year is the purple lupin, which is something you might see growing across a field in the Atlantic provinces. I hope it gets enough refracted sunlight to survive in the shade of the tree. Uncle Bill’s heritage peonies have spread to form a hedge at the end of my vegetable garden. I also plant a handful of cosmos seeds here every year, because their soft pastels and feathery stalks remind me of when I first planted them to decorate for our wedding day. I have always wanted zinnias, so I sprinkled a row of seeds in front of the now-deserted children’s playhouse. For my mother, I planted a row of glad bulbs. In memory of my father, I planted his favourite – a deep red hollyhock. It will grow to be five feet tall and the focal point of the farmhouse flowerbed. We are going to have some beautiful flower arrangements on the Sunday dinner table this summer.


Project Zero boosts fire safety Rotary Duck Race returns to Kemptville Residents in nearly 200 North Grenville dwellings will soon sleep easier knowing that a new combination smoke and carbon monoxide detector is working to keep them safe. Thanks to a donation from Enbridge Gas Distribution, the Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council will distribute 176 combination alarms valued at $6,500 to high risk homes in areas that in recent years have seen a higher than average number of residential fires and fire-related deaths. “This year, 11 municipalities in Ontario will benefit from this life-saving initiative,” Fire Safety Council executive director Art Pullan told North Grenville council at a recent meeting. The alarms will be installed in single and multi-family dwellings, said North Grenville’s Fire Prevention Officer Elizabeth Greenberg. The department will focus on homes with the elderly and people with intellectual disabilities. Some recipients have been identified, but Greenberg encourages other candi-


Some good ideas never go away. The Kemptville Rotary Club is planning to bring back a duck race for the area on Canada Day. It has been almost 20 years since hundreds of bright yellow numbered rubber ducks have taken the plunge off of the Kemptille Bridge and raced down Kemptville Creek to Curry Park. The official name of the race is the Kemptville Rotary Club Charity Duck Race. It is sponsored by Hudson’s Auto Body. There is $800 in cash prizes to be had. Tickets are $5 and can be found at Jonssons Independent Grocery Store, the Oxford Mills General Store and at Moose Mart in Kemptille. “We will be here at Jonssons Independent for the next week,” said Rotarian Claire Larabie. “Then we will move on to B&H Your Community Grocer.”

Rotarian Claire Larabie sells tickets for the duck race. Bringing back the duck race was no accident. “I thought it would be nice for children to have something to root for,” explained Larabie. “We wanted something that would involve youth.” The duck race used to be a favourite charity in the area. Many residents can still recall the sight of a back hoe lifting up a bucket filled with hundreds of little yellow

ducks and pouring them over the edge of the bridge in downtown Kemptville. The winner of this years duck race will be announced at the Canada Day opening ceremonies. The proceeds of the race will go to supporting the many Rotary Club charity projects. “This will be the first and I hope there will be many more,” said Larabie.




dates to contact the fire department for consideration. The first of the alarms are already being installed, a process that Greenberg said would continue through Fire Prevention Week in October. Carbon monoxide is a toxic, colourless gas that is produced as a result of incomplete combustion. To reduce the chance of carbon monoxide poisoning, the fire department advises homeowners to check and properly maintain all fuelburning equipment to avoid buildup of the deadly gas. Now in its third year, Project Zero is a public education program working to eliminate residential fire and carbon monoxide deaths. While smoke alarms are mandatory by law in Ontario, carbon monoxide detectors are not, though they are highly recommended by the Fire Marshall as an integral part of every home safety plan. The combination alarms will provide an early warning to help residents escape from a fire or carbon monoxide exposure. Of the 84 people who died in fire-related incidents in Ontario last year, 75 were as a result of residential fires.

Living in a peaceful small town, far from the big city, can create the illusion that crime doesn’t exist. That false sense of security can lead people to leave their engine running or car doors unlocked while they run a quick errand. That’s a no-no, said OPP Cst. Cathy Lindsey. Lindsey was in the Colonnade shopping centre parking lot last month, making sure drivers locked their doors and hid all valuables before leaving their vehicles. Most criminals are lazy, Lindsey said, and iPods, jackets or even loose change in the cup holder of an unlocked car are just asking to be stolen. “Theft is a crime of opportunity,” she explained. A thief would rather grab something from inside an unlocked car and slip quietly away than break a window and attract attention. Less obvious items like GPS devices and garage door openers should also be tucked out of sight when the car is unattended, Lindsey advised, as thieves can use them to get into the victim’s garage or home. Documents with the driver’s name and address can be used to commit identity theft, and should not be kept in the glove box overnight. Now that the summer weather is here, open windows are a particular problem. There’s no protective bubble around your driveway at home, either. “We find the majority of incidents are in the town of Kemp-

tville, where culprits can walk from home to home,” Lindsey said. Thieves will often work in pairs or small groups, with one acting as a “spotter” while the others remove valuables. The police notice an uptick in this kind of crime as the weather warms. “The bad guys are just like everybody else. They’re fair-weather thieves,” Lindsey said. She encourages readers to report any theft, no matter how minor, since the police might be able to identify a pattern of theft in the area. Residents should call the OPP if they hear something suspicious in their driveway. In the Colonnade lot, drivers returning to their cars found a notice from the OPP either congratulating them for having the doors locked and windows shut with keys and valuables out of sight, or reminding them to take more precautions. Lindsey was pleasantly surprised to find that most drivers were being vigilant. Sarah Clement’s minivan passed the test. Clement, who moved to Kemptville in December, locks her car doors religiously, a habit she picked up living in Thunder Bay and Ottawa. “I do feel a little bit safer here, but it’s good to take precautions. You have to in this day and age,” she said. Other drivers evidently did not share her view. One van had a large package in clear view in the back seat, and Lindsey found a pick-up truck with the doors unlocked and coins and documents in plain sight. She left a note on the driver’s seat.

STAFF Trudy Reid announced her retirement as CEO of Winchester Memorial Hospital several weeks ago. Her retirement party will be a bit unusual. She will be taking part in the Carkinator Car and Moto Rally on June 25 with the Trudy Farewell Team. The fundraising event will take the CEO through the many communities WDMH serves.

“We wanted to do something special for Trudy,” said the hospital’s Board Chair, John Polak. He added that the team felt the car rally was a fitting way to honour Trudy and the wonderful work she has done for the hospital. Matt Carkner, the veteran Ottawa Senators player, has given his name to the car rally. He expects to have a great deal of fun along with all those who sign up for the car rally.

A pit stop challenge, post-race barbecue with entertainment, and games for children ensure there will be lots to do on race day. Added to all of that is the great scenery to be seen throughout the rally route. Teams can register online at www. The Trudy Farewell Tour team also includes the Board’s Vice Chair, Lisa Little, and Dr. Chuck Adamson, WDMH Chief of Staff.

In a press release, Reid said, “I am very honoured to be part of this impressive team and looking forward to a great day.” The CEO admitted that she is not famous for her map reading skills, “so I plan to sit back and enjoy the view.” To donate online, visit www.wmdh. and follow the links to “Pledge a Team.” You can also donate at the Foundation office.

Hard work adds up for Kemptville ‘mathemagician’ J.P. ANTONACCI

“It’s easier to start at the end,” said Grade 11 student Luc Ritchie, while reconstructing a quadratic equation he created on the chalkboard during his lunch break at North Grenville District High School (NGDHS) last Tuesday. “Once you know the solution, you can figure out how to get there,” he explained as he filled in the variables and integers. That kind of freewheeling calculation would induce panic in the average person, for whom making change at the grocery store is hard enough. But Ritchie, 16, loves the challenge of getting inside an equation and seeing how it works. “I enjoy solving problems that I think would be complicated. It’s a nice feeling of satisfaction to know, okay, this was complicated, but I figured it out,” he said, drawing an arrow and sketching in another branch of the equation to illustrate how flexible math can be. Ritchie’s confident approach to a subject that strikes fear in many of his classmates helped him score the highest regional mark and finish in the top two per cent of the 22,000 Grade 11 students who wrote the Fermat Math Contest in February. He thought he had done pretty well when he handed in his Scantron sheet after the hour-long multiple choice test,

The top regional score in a national math test earned North Grenville DHS Grade 11 student Luc Ritchie an all-expense paid trip to a weeklong math workshop at the University of Waterloo. but wasn’t sure how he would measure up against his peers. He later learned that his score of 128 out of 150 was the top mark in the Upper Canada District School Board. “I didn’t realize how good 128 was, but I guess it’s quite good,” Ritchie said with

a laugh. His excellent result earned him an invite to an exclusive week-long workshop at the University of Waterloo from June 5-11, where 60 like-minded students will explore the intricacies of advanced mathematics and get a taste of univer-

sity life. Ritchie knows a week of formulas and equations isn’t everyone’s idea of a good time, but he couldn’t wait to go. “I’ve gotten mixed reactions when people heard about this – some people saying it’s cool, some people saying they would hate to do that. Personally, I think it’s going to be quite an interesting experience. I am quite excited to see how it goes,” he said. The university funded most of the tuition and lodging, with NGDHS chipping in the rest as a reward for Ritchie’s exemplary achievement. Distilling problems to their essence makes algebra Ritchie’s favourite branch of mathematics so far, though he’s looking forward to taking calculus next year. While he sometimes helps his friends and younger sister with their homework, he’s more comfortable doing the work than explaining it to others. But he encourages those who struggle to keep practicing tricky concepts until they become routine. Ritchie has thought about becoming a professor and hopes to study computer science or computer engineering at university. He looks forward to using his talents to solve practical problems. “I admire people who devote their life to figuring out problems, solving things, getting a better understanding of the world” through physics and mathematics, he said.

Over the past year, the committee has raised $100,000 for new park benches, flower planters, waste receptacles and pole flags to beautify the downtown core.

Upcoming events planned by the Winchester Downtown Revitalization Committee include the stone carving festival and auction known as “Milk & Mallets” at Dairyfest this summer, and Dessertfest in November.


The revitalization of downtown Winchester took an important step forward with the official opening of Sweet Corner Park at the corner of Main and St. Lawrence on May 28. Residents enjoyed a moment of natural calm in the heart of town, strolling among the trees and flowerbeds and taking a breather on the park benches. The many private donors who helped build the park and raised stage are commemorated by engraved bricks and stones or plaques signifying their sponsorship. Merrickville country musician Don Tuttle entertained the large crowd, which gobbled up nearly 300 meals courtesy of the “Tic Tac BBQ” at Winchester’s first annual Ribfest. Winchester Downtown Revitalization Committee member Vince Zandbelt said the demand for tickets was fantastic, as the group sold almost 100 more presale tickets than expected, and had to send 100 people looking for sameday tickets to the Lions Club barbeque as no more rib tickets were available. The committee will expand next year’s event in light of the overwhelming demand, Zandbelt said. All proceeds from the Ribfest will go to a general fund to complete the park. A four-sided clock will stand at the main corner, and a water fountain will be installed in the flower bed, along with

Giving Garden gets helping hand JOSEPH MORIN

The Giving Garden, located on land adjacent to County Road 43 at the Ferguson Forest Centre and a short distance from St. Michael Catholic High School in Kemptville, is a popular place for the community to work together. A wind storm recently swept through Kemptville and lifted up a garden tool shed at the community garden, leaving it dented and upside down in nearby trees. “To all appearances, the shed was damaged beyond repair. Replacing the shed looked like an insurmountable task,” said Don Munz, the chairmen of the Giving Garden committee. The garden is volunteer driven, and maintaining the necessary equipment and storing away valuable tools is crucial to the volunteers who keep the garden going. Marcus Dickie from Community Living and Angus MacDonald from St. Michael High School had planned a joint trip to the garden. There were high school students along with adult members of Community Living planning to spend a day getting some work done with the garden’s flower beds. “When they got to the garden they saw the pile of metal that had once been the tool shed,” explained Munz. Not to be put off by the state of the shed, the group altered their agenda. Their new task was to collect all the tools that had been scattered around as the shed had become airborne during the wind storm. They repaired the dented and bent tool shed as best they could, rebuilt the shed’s gravel foundation, and returned the tools to where they belonged. “This combined group of young teens and adults came together in an unexpected situation and worked together in a way that exemplifies the very best in community spirit,” said Munz. “Though Mr. Dickie and Mr. MacDonald would have preferred to remain anonymous, the Giving Garden committee wants to publicly express their sincere gratitude to all who participated that day. This act of kindness will keep the garden alive and functioning for another season of giving fresh, free vegetables and flowers to anyone who might need or enjoy them.”

What We Need In Life For someone to be content, joyful and at peace in this life, I believe that they need the following: faith and trust in God, to give love and be needed, meaningful work, and something to look forward to. One could argue that this is only the tip of the iceberg, and that there are many other things that should be included if we are to be content with our lives, such as good health, money, etc. There are relatively few people in life with perfect health or a lot of money, but true happiness is indeed a blessing from God. Our awareness and gratitude for all the good things that have been given to us should bring joy and happiness to our hearts, and we should always give thanks to our Heavenly Father for how much He loves us. We can be confident that God wants His people to be full of joy and to have peace in their lives. The Bible tells us that He will protect those who love Him, and they will be truly happy.

May the God of hope fill you with joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the holy Spirit you may abound in hope. R.S.V.

The Rideau Canal is a world heritage site filled with wonderful recreational opportunities as well as a sense of history that helps to define Canada and Ontario. A perfect example of history along the Rideau Canal coming to life is the Merrickville Blockhouse. Every summer, the restored Blockhouse is the centre of attention in the village. The Blockhouse is a heritage icon in the area and a key tourist attraction. It is managed on a volunteer basis by the Merrickvile & District Historical Society on behalf of the Village of Merrickville. The Blockhouse has been open since the end of May and volunteers are looking forward to its official opening on June 18. The opening features more than just an official ribbon cutting ceremony. Mayor Doug Struthers will be on hand to open the Blockhouse surrounded by a bagpiper, rope maker, rug hooking and quilting and the Maplewood Ceilidh Band. Prize winners for the annual School Historical Essay Contest will be announced. The Blockhouse opening is the time for the volunteers to step back until the fall.

Get ready for the Upper Canada Rodeo being held in Chesterville between June 16 and 19. Come see competitors from around the world competing in 3 of the most dangerous sports in the world; saddle bronc riding, bareback bronc riding and of course bull riding along with so much more! The event is organized by Upper Canada Festivals and Fundraising, a group dedicated to building events and partnerships that promote community, fundraising and local economic development. Last year, the rodeo event structure helped out a number of non-profit organizations such as the Chesterville Lions, Knights of Columbus, House of Lazarus, Happy Face Nursery School, and Pathfinders by offering free space on the grounds for fundraising and promotion. Furthermore, we were able to highlight some of our amazing service organizations like the Ontario Early Years, South Nation Conservation and Eastern Ontario Health Unit. This year a fundraiser for Children’s Wish Foundation will be held along with the Steer Away Hunger Food Drive for the House of Lazarus and inclusion of fitness activities like Geocaching thanks in part to the Eastern Ontario Health Unit. Papa Gus’s Family Restaurant and Bar at 160 Queen Street will host all the equine and rodeo events/shows and visitors can also enjoy Bounce Amusement, SNC Watershed Adventure Programming, Sunny Acres Barnyard Zoo Animal Adventures, Pop Shop All Stars & Company Kids Live Concert and Dance, Live Music, Cowboy Church, Chessfest and more. Throughout the village you will find an Art Show at the Waterfront, boat rentals, quilter displays, weaving demonstrations, antique tractors and fire truck, mini boats and submarines, and more. Plus both the community pool and museum will be open. The museum will be hosting a Titanic Historical Display. Access to the grounds is free on Thursday and Friday but a Day Pass is required for the Saturday and Sunday where a Professional Rodeo produced by Rawhide Rodeo is held each day. Day Pass for Saturday or Sunday are on sale now online or at select ticket depots. Bounce, live night time music and some pay per use items are not included in Day Pass. Don’t forget your ipads, ipods, e-machines and other mobile internet devices because this year the Upper Canada Rodeo is getting ‘hooked up’ with Wireless Internet thanks to RipNET limited. Stop by the Southway Hotel and Conference Centre’s tent and have your say in the ‘Cowboy Chat Room’. For more information on school/play group trips, events, entertainment, camping and accommodation options, to volunteer, become a vendor or partner, shuttle service, and more, visit This is an event that you don’t want to miss!

Rotating strikes confuse Canada Post clients STAFF The strike by Canada Post workers has yet to have an effect on post office users, other than to create confusion. Claims by both sides of the stamp that all 48,000 postal workers are contributing to the union’s cause by taking part in

THE OTTAWA HOSPITAL FOUNDATION He may be the mayor of Merrickville, but it’s not uncommon to see Doug Struthers cruising around the village on his old bike. “I have a terrific, old CCM bicycle,” Struthers chuckled. “It’s got two-and-a-half working gears. I love it. When it’s possible, I’ll pedal around town, or from my home to the municipal office.” Last year, the recreational cyclist decided to combine his love of biking with a cause close to his heart – he registered in The Ottawa Hospital Foundation’s Ride the Rideau event in support of cancer research at The Ottawa Hospital. A 100 km road bike fundraiser from Ottawa to Merrickville, Ride the Rideau raised an incredible $940,000 in its inaugural year. This year, The Ottawa Hospital has set a fundraising goal of $1.8 million. “Many residents in our community have needed, and in the future, may need cancer treatment,” he said. “It’s world-class research that’s happening at The Ottawa Hospital, and it deserves world-class support. The research that’s going on can make major strides in eradicating cancer.” Although he considers himself to be active – Struthers skis and snowshoes in the winter and walks and golfs in the summer – “cycling uses different parts of the body,” he said. “It was a challenge for me, personally.” And there was still the issue of his bike.

rotating strikes across the country, are causing some confusion. Postal workers in the Kemptville post office had a normal Friday last week. Winnipeg’s postal workers were the first to walk out Friday in a series of 24hour rotating strikes. As of Friday afternoon, Hamilton was announced to be the

next spot postal workers would strike. The president of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers, Denis Lemelin, explained why the strike was taking place. He claims that his members are working in unsafe conditions as a result of modernization within the post office. Lemelin said that there had been a 15 per cent increase in injuries and a weakening of customer service. While the union and the post office hope to find some shared position, customers are wondering what they can do. Kemptville resident Valerie Veinotte said the rotating strikes make it difficult to know what to do. “It is troubling because you do not know what to put in the mail,” she said as she took her mail away from the Kemptville Post Office on Friday. “I put a birthday card in the mail today. It will arrive.” Veinotte felt that not much harm would be done if the birthday card was a few days late. Michelle Crozier of Kemptville was not too worried about herself, but wondered if others would have difficult time if the strike went on too long. “I do not like strikes,” she said. “I think (the post office) is an essential service.” “It will not affect me personally but it will affect others,” she said referring to the older rural population who do not do much of their business over the internet or do not have any access to the internet at all.

Council won’t be kept in the dark J.P. ANTONACCI

When heavy winds knocked out power to much of North Grenville and Burritt’s Rapids on April 28, residents were upset with the lack of clear information from Ontario Hydro about when the lights would come back on. In fact, those who could access Hydro’s website found that the “up-to-date” map showing which areas were still without power was incorrect. North Grenville council was also frustrated by Hydro’s cone of silence. Radio updates were erroneous, as stations were using Hydro’s flawed map as a source. To avoid being kept in the dark – figuratively and otherwise – during another emergency situation, the municipality has come up with a way to establish direct communication with Ontario Hydro. Hydro has agreed that Mayor David Gordon will be the contact person who will receive and relay updates directly from Hydro staff as to the extent and timeline of any power outages. Should the mayor be unavailable, Deputy Mayor Ken Finnerty would take the call. The municipality would then update its website with the correct information, and find other ways to communicate with residents.

“I’d never done anything like that before in my life,” he said. “It was an exciting experience.” The scenery didn’t hurt, either. The route will take riders from Ottawa through the heart of Merrickville and along the Rideau Canal, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Merrickville community also comes out to show their support, Struthers said.


“Quite a few people come out to cheer on the day of,” he said. “People come down to the Blockhouse Park and start cheering spontaneously,” he said. “It’s a great adrenaline rush.” The 59-year-old has already signed up for the second annual ride as a member of Team Merrickville, which raised $17,000 last year. The mayor isn’t the only one in town behind this event. Other supporters include the Merrickville Lions Club, which donated $10,000 to the cause, and members of the business community, including Janet Campbell of Mrs. McGarrigle’s Fine Foods and Shelley Innes of the Downtowne Ice Cream & Candy Shoppe. Struthers, who is setting his personal fundraising goal at $3,000, is challenging others in his community to take part as well. “My name is Doug and I live here too,” he said. If a guy who is the mayor of Merrickville can do it, you can do it. It’s a challenge for people to consider.”

Before players and parents settle into summer mode, the Kemptville District Minor Hockey Association (KDMHA) would like to announce that returning players (Storm and Panthers) can already register online for next season at or by downloading a registration form and mailing it to the Registrar, PO Box 1633, Kemptville, ON, K0G 1J0.

Veterans remember fallen The history event included storytelling from those who attended about what they had acquired as well as how they came to have their particular piece of history. For example, former North Dundas Mayor Alvin Runnells brought in a genuine First World War helmet. Scharf had asked a fellow Odd Fellow member for the pictures of the soldiers. “When we cleaned out the hall in 1999 the pictures went home with one member and the plaque went with another,” remembers Scharf. After the Winchester historical event, Scharf took the pictures back home with him. Despite his determination to find the photos, DiZazzo was

running into one dead end after another. Ironically, during another conversation with another friend he stumbled across the pictures. He was at a monthly meeting of the Friends of the South Mountain Library. A comment about his search was made to Dave Scharf. “I know where they are,” said Scharf. “They are somewhere in my basement.” The rest, as they say, is history. The memorial plaque was refurbished as well as the individual nameplates thanks to Classic Graphics in Kemptville. The new home for the pictures of the Fallen Five will be J.
