Bus service in crisis NGAT a victim of its own success J.P. ANTONACCI

Musicians from Metcalfe Public School play it cool at the Jazz Café.


FUN AT FIRE GAMES The Kemptville Fire Department took home some major hardware in Athens last weekend.


For Kemptville resident Sue Provost, the sight of the white North Grenville Accessible Transportation (NGAT) bus coming up her driveway means one thing – independence. Provost is in a wheelchair and unable to drive or fit into conventional car seats. If her Community Living North Grenville (CLNG) support workers aren’t available to drive her, she is effectively housebound. That’s where NGAT comes in. Six times a week, Provost uses the bus service to go to the bank, library and hairdresser, to get her nails done, visit the CLNG resource centre, or get bloodwork done at the hospital. The service is flexible, catering to her timetable and conveniently dropping her door to door. It might not sound like much, but for someone who otherwise couldn’t do these everyday tasks, NGAT is a lifesaver. “Accessible transportation

People who would be shutins can become fully involved in the community,” explains Rosemary Connelly, a member of the eight-person accessible trans-

portation committee and director of care at Bayfield Manor, a popular NGAT pickup point. Each month, NGAT provides some 200 rides to people like Provost. Since incorporating as a non-profit entity and launch-

ing full service in 1999, the bus has become a gateway to independence for many seniors and people with mobility issues. The service has almost grown too popular for its own good. NGAT see page 2

Penny Cousineau disembarks from the NGAT bus to visit the support centre at Community Living North Grenville last week. NGAT’s cheerful driver Jeff Arcand says the subsidized rides are a lifeline for people like Cousineau who have limited mobility. “They say they don’t know what they’d do without it,” he said.

“We’re in a bit of a funding crisis right now,” Connelly said. Fares are heavily subsidized, and while the municipal government and United Way provide regular funding, NGAT is currently running a deficit because demand for rides is outpacing donations. NGAT currently operates two buses, one for local trips and another to transport patients to non-urgent medical appointments in Ottawa. Especially in the latter case, without fare subsidies, most riders couldn’t afford the trip. “The issue is that people with mobility impairment usually don’t have the financial means to pay the full pop,” Connelly said. “You’re looking at $300 for a (return) trip to Ottawa, while NGAT is $68.” Wubs Transportation provides dispatch service at a significant discount, and many businesses and service clubs regularly donate to keep the program going.

Students would lay two long pieces of masking tape next to each other and paint the space in between, leaving a straight line once the tape was removed. “All of the murals were done by meticulously tap-

ing each line. It’s very labour intensive,” Munz said. “It did teach them how to tighten things up and make something of quality.” “You get spoiled on the computer now,” he laments. “You never have to get your fingers dirty. And

it’s too bad, because a lot of the eye to hand skill is just disappearing.” Thanks to Munz’s mentorship, that skill, and the history reflected in the murals, will be remembered for some time to come. See more of Don Munz’s artwork at

Compassion in the service of care, Jamie MacDougall and the Order of Canada

Jamie MacDougall is the founder and Director of The Ottawa Hospital’s Institute for Rehabilitation Research and Development. He grew up in Overbrook, a brisk run from the General Campus. He went to high school at Lisgar, beside City Hall. His commitment to Ottawa is obvious. It is his commitment to Canada’s Deaf and persons with disability that led to his investiture in the Oder of Canada, on May 27. “You immediately think of all the people that made it possible, especially those with disabilities who inspired me. It is validation for thousands of people,” says MacDougall of the honour. Deafness and disability is personal for MacDougall. His parents, Peter and Gladys, were both deaf. His daughter, Paige, suffered a serious head injury at age 17, bringing his awareness of disabilities even closer to home. “People with disabilities have greater potential than we realize,” says MacDougall. “They have to overcome a lot of stereotypes…Just like everyone else, they aspire to realize their full potential.” Rusty Wendt, the head Carleton University’s Department of Psychology, understood this calling early on, convincing McDougall to take a summer job working with deaf parents seeking better means to communicate with their hearing children.

The Municipality of North Grenville is currently accepting applications for the following position: Chief Superintendent of W ater & W astewater Inform ation on this position is available on the m unicipal web site at ploym ent.cfm or contact Christa Stewart, Public W orks Clerk at 613-258-9569 Ext. 133 or cstewart@ Closing Date is Friday, July 15 th , 2011 at 4:00 p.m .

MacDougall left Carleton for McGill, getting his Masters and PhD in Clinical Psychology, studying the psychological impact of sensory deprivation and the link between deafness and literacy. Moving to Newfoundland’s Memorial University, he studied the impact of resettlement on cognitive development in children. From there, he went on to Rochester New York’s National Technical Institute for the Deaf. Then, back to McGill, where he spent 40 years teaching in the area of deafness and disability, and lead the Mackay Centre for Deaf and Disabled Children. His research is rooted in the everyday challenges faced by the Deaf and persons with disability. “Whether its children or adults,” says MacDougall, “I’ve been touched by the courage of extraordinary people.” Those people, in turn, have enabled valuable research. “The strength of clinically driven research is that it is both practical and sophisticated because of the problems it allows us to explore”. During one particularly complex case with a deaf Inuk in Nunavut who was said to have no language, MacDougall discovered the Inuit had their own sign language – Inuit Sign Language. His ability to extend clinical work beyond the hospital into the real world sets MacDougall apart. Working with advocacy groups such as the Canadian Hearing Society and the Canadian Association of the Deaf, he fought to ensure people with disabilities enjoy the full protection of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. His example brings The Ottawa Hospital a step closer to its vision of providing each patient with the world class care, exceptional service and compassion we would want for our loved ones.

Don Munz moved to Kemptville from his native California nine years ago, and was immediately taken by the region’s rural heritage. The veteran artist says his perspective as a relative newcomer drove his interest in preserving Kemptville’s rich history as a mill and river town. Those efforts took the form of a partnership with art students at North Grenville District High School (NGDHS). Under Munz’s tutelage over the past three years, students have collaborated on three large scale outdoor murals of river scenes inspired by sketches Munz made of photos he found in the National Archives in Ottawa. The turn of the century steamships remind passersby in Old Town Kemptville of the area’s significant nautical tradition. The third of these murals was unveiled during the Dandelion Festival in late May. A scene of steamships ferrying passengers across a local waterway circa 1905 now greets those walking by the southern wall of Bodhi Tree Yoga on Prescott Street, joining sister murals decorating the walls outside the branch restaurant and Old Town Interiors. Munz sees the murals as part of the rebranding of Old Town as a heritage zone. “That’s what I was trying to do,” he said. “Because, see, these are all river towns. Merrickville, Kemptville, Manotick, and you could go on and on. They’re all on the river because the big Rideau was the freeway of its time. So I wanted to bring back a little of the significance of that. Even though South Branch to some is no more than a creek, at one time it was a very viable transportation route.” Barb Tobin teaches art at NGDHS. She has witnessed class after class learn from Munz’s experience and enthusiasm. “It’s great for the students, it’s great for the arts,” Tobin said of the unique partnership. The new mural is made of four aluminum panels with a plastic core, each measuring four feet by eight feet and screwed into a pressure-treated wooden frame. Over two semesters, Grade 11 and 12 students used outdoor sign paint to create the riverside scene. The finished product received two coats of UV protection to keep the vibrant colours bright in the sunshine. Munz, a former art and design instructor, hopes the students gained an appreciation for minding small details while seeing the big picture. During his weekly visits, he encouraged them to put down their laptops and try

Be a donor Imagine having the potential to save eight lives and enhance 75 more. It’s all possible by registering online as an organ and tissue donor. More than 1,500 Ontarians are on the list waiting for an organ transplant. Every three days, someone in this province dies while waiting for a life-saving transplant. Thousands more are waiting for a tissue transplant that could help enhance their lives. You can change that. All you have to do is take a few minutes out of your day to register as an organ and tissue donor online. Signed donor cards are no longer an acceptable option; the card may not be available when the information is needed and your wishes will go unknown. The online registry stores your information in a Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care database and shares your decision to donate with the Trillium Gift of Life Network, Ontario’s organ and tissue donation agency. When you register, you ensure your decision to donate will be carried out in the event of your death – donation is only an option after all life-saving efforts have failed.

Granted, death is a morbid subject – especially when it comes unexpectedly. But your organs and tissue won’t do any good for anyone when they’re six feet under. Corneas could help a woman see the world around her. A skin graft could help a burn victim heal. A new pair of lungs could give a child with cystic fibrosis the breath to carry on. A new heart could give a father the chance to watch his son grow up. Anyone can donate regardless of pre-existing medical conditions and lifestyle. You can also choose what to give. The doctors assess the organs and tissue and make the decision from there as to what’s viable. The only requirement is that you are 16 years of age or older. Don’t leave the burden of choice up to your loved ones. Register online at, visit a ServiceOntario centre or download and mail in the Gift of Life consent form to become an organ and tissue donor. Save a life. Save eight lives.


Yet another good reason to head for the lake Next week the fighting will start — the people who want to go off to the cottage for Canada Day against the people who want to stay in town and see Will and Kate. There are other subgroups, the people who want to stay in town to see the jazz festival and the people who want to stay in town for the fireworks, but that’s quite a different matter. You might think this upcoming battle is a battle of the sexes — the women wanting to see the royal couple and the men wanting to go fix the dock — but that’s old-fashioned stereotyped thinking. It’s more complicated than that. Back in April there were an awful lot of people, both male and female, who got up at five in the morning to watch the royal wedding on TV. Around that time, I remarked casually to a group of like-minded people that it was crazy and perhaps even un-Canadian of the CBC to send Peter Mansbridge over to London cover the wedding just three days before a Canadian federal election. Turns out that many people were less like-minded than I thought. There was much leaping to the defence of the CBC and defending of the historical impor-

CHARLES GORDON Funny Town tance of the royal wedding. This, of course, doesn’t mean I was wrong. Anyway, the whole argument will now start up again. Some people will say that the way to go about being a good Canadian on Canada Day is to go to a lake and do something with a canoe or a tree. In doing so we are honouring our ancestors and our heritage. Others will argue that the Crown is part of what makes Canada special and that we should salute it in person whenever the opportunity arises. Not all of these people are old codgers. Now, it’s true that the motorcade isn’t going to stop for them, nor will they be able to get close enough to salute, but it’s the thought that counts. It should also be noted that there is a

rapidly growing number of Canadians whose heritage includes neither lakes and canoes nor royal couples from England. If you’re in that group, you might be very confused by it all, and should maybe just hang out at the jazz festival, where neither God Save the Queen nor O Canada is likely to be played. Mind you, you might hear the CF-18s and the 21 guns. One of the reasons the monarchy has survived so long in this country is that people tend to be rather good-natured about it. It helps that most of our royal visitors in recent times have been rather pleasant and it is difficult even for a committed republican to direct the necessary amount of outrage against them. Will and Kate, too, seem quite nice. If you want to work up a case against a royal visit it is necessary to search for some other reason. The only one that springs to mind is that having a princess in our midst might encourage more of our Canadian little girls to want to be princesses. Feminists and other sensible people have been worrying about the princess phenomenon for some time now — parents dressing their daughters up in frilly pink costumes, sometimes even with

Whoever is at fault, it isn’t doing much to persuade our daughters to become doctors, engineers, soldiers, hockey players or any of the things they can be that don’t involve marrying princes. It’s unlikely that Kate, when she gets to Ottawa, will be wearing a crown or anything frilly and pink, but you can never be too careful, which is why heading for the lake isn’t such a bad idea. Everybody knows you can’t be a princess and climb a tree at the same time.

Canada Day fun in North Grenville STAFF Those wondering how to celebrate Canada’s 144th birthday in style need look no further than North Grenville, where a full raft of activities will keep patriotic partiers busy from morning till night. Start the holiday bright and early with a scrumptious hot breakfast at the Kemptville Legion on Reuben Street from 8 to 10 a.m. Adult tickets are $5, and kids 12 and under get in for just $3. After you fuel up, head to Maplewood Park in Oxford Mills. Remove your caps for the singing of O Canada and the flagraising at 12 noon, and then rock the afternoon away with live music provided by Jones Street (John & Terry Brewer), Dave Scully, the Maplewood Ceilidh Band, and bluegrass favourites Grenville Grass. The kids can get their faces painted and try their hand at traditional games, while scarfing down some free cake for a sugar boost. For more substantial fare, the Lions Club concession stand will dish out hot dogs, hamburgers and drinks. A Farmers’ Market and critter display featuring spiders, snakes and lizards rounds out the fun in Oxford Mills. The action then moves back to Kemptville for the Rotary Club’s annual Canada Day parade, a perennial favourite that draws bigger and bigger crowds each year. The theme of this year’s parade is “Reaching Out to Humanity.” More than 40 groups and a diverse collection of honourees, prize-winning

floats, bands and dignitaries will again depart from the B&H parking lot at 4 p.m. and make their way along Clothier and Prescott Streets to finish at South Branch School on Concession Road. Again this year there will be a barbeque and evening entertainment on the University of Guelph Kemptville Campus groundse, along with a magic show, face painting, balloon art, juggling, fire eating, busking, and games on stage. For the first time in a long time, the Kemptville Rotary Duck Race will be held at 1 p.m. at Rotary Park and Prescott Street. The brave canards will tumble over the bridge into the creek and float their way to Curry Park. Adopt your duck for $5 apiece at M5 Digital, in Creekside Mall, Oxford Mills General Store, and Royal LePage Gale Real Estate at their new location in the Colonnade Mall. Duck race winners will be announced at the opening ceremony at 5 p.m. at the Main Stage beside Purvis Hall. The parade route will be packed with floats, but there is still room for a few more. If you would like to enter a float, call Anna Van Adrichem-Rochon at 2582706 or email There is also table space available for groups, crafters, local businesses, and service clubs, at no charge. Call 613-2588336 x 61234 to reserve your table. Volunteers are needed to make the day a success. An hour or so of your time will make a big difference. Please call 613-2588336 x 61234 to get involved.

In October 2009, Rhea Ferguson’s father, Bill, was

diagnosed with esophageal gastric cancer at age 59. After successfully undergoing treatment at The Ottawa Hospital Cancer Centre, the family received some devastating news – the cancer was back, and this time, it was inoperable. Ferguson also knows more about the need for cancer research than the average person. She recently completed her Master’s degree in cancer epidemiology at McGill University, has worked with cancer researcher Dr. John Bell at The Ottawa Hospital Research Institute (OHRI) and is currently working as a database manager for the Hospital’s ovarian cancer bank. “Cancer research has always been a big passion for me,” said the 26-year-old Ottawa native. “There’s a history of cancer in my family. I lost all my grandparents to it.”

Kemptville Advance - JUNE 23, 2011


Ferguson, who is riding as a member of the Cancer Trailblazers, the OHRI Cancer Centre team, said she reached her fundraising goal of $1,500 in just two weeks. “People are so generous,” she said. “Everyone knows someone who is affected by the disease. “It would be amazing to have another treatment option that is… not so hard on the body,” she said. “The research needs to continue.” With her father’s health rapidly declining, she said she will be thinking about him when she does the ride on Sept. 10. “I’m hoping to be able to tell him about it,” she said.

Looking for a way to make a difference, she learned about Ride the Rideau, a 100 km cycling fundraiser from Ottawa to Merrickville to support cancer research at The Ottawa Hospital, and immediately signed up. “It’s raising money for where I work, and it’s going to where my dad was treated,” she said. “It was a perfect fit.” Ferguson’s mother, Sheila, also got on board as a Ride the Rideau volunteer.

Happiness is a new nest column feeder. If you take an especially long time getting the bag open, the turkeys gather around your boots, looking up at you and warbling helpful advice. I want to meet the person who invented the feedbag string system and I want to kick them in the shins. On thirty-degree days I am often found in a damp, smelly chicken coop, fussing with the strings that are supposed to easily release with a tug on the knot on the opposite side and opposite end of the feed bag label. The bags are doublestitched all the way down the seam so you can’t just take an exacto knife or pair of scissors to it. Anyway, it can be trying. The turkeys also appreciate a clean, dry bed of hay, but they don’t go through it as quickly because they drink and eat at about one-tenth the speed of the chickens. They hardly eat or drink at all, actually, in comparison to the feathered beasts in the next pen. The only real complaint I have

The Accidental Farmwife about the turkeys is that they like to sneak into the new chick pens to snuggle down under the heat lamp. I come in the mornings to find the new chicks struggling to crawl out from under the bigger turkeys. So I took the turkeys out of the new chick pen and stretched chicken wire (aptly named) over the top of the pen. The next day I found the turkeys had been sitting on the wire, looking down and pooping on the little chicks below. So the Farmer moved the new chicks to their own pen in the lambing area. Now they are having a blast,

running around and hiding in the corners of their vast space. The Farmer used to keep his birds outside. He built them shelter from the elements and provided water in a long, low trough. I think the birds would enjoy being outside. My cats don’t seem to be intrigued by them at all and the sheep certainly wouldn’t bother them. The horse and donkey might be interested in the noise the birds make but if we fence off the area they should be safe. The Farmer says he has to clip the wings of the birds so that they don’t try to fly away. And then we have to make sure they have everything they need, and that the area has been bird-proofed. When I first visited the farm in 2006, the birds loved to sit on the cedar rail fence. This was fine until the birds got to such a weight (turkeys in particular) that they would fall off the fence and break their necks. So we have to watch for hazards

like that. But, as always, I think that a freerange animal is much happier and healthier than one that is kept in a room in the barn. And a Farmwife is much happier and healthier if she can get the darned feedbag open, which is now much easier since the Farmer pointed out that you open them from the zipline on the bottom.

Library use skyrockets Notes from North Grenville council J.P. ANTONACCI

If you build it, they will come, hoped the Room to Read Campaign. And after the grand opening of the North Grenville Public Library in Old Town Kemptville, they’ve been proven right. In just its first two weeks, the library has issued 798 library cards to first-time users. That’s on top of the many users who came in to renew expired cards. The library system usually circulates 4,000 items in an average June, but this year 2,700 items have already come off the shelves at mid-month. Library cards are free for all residents, and the library has many summer programs for readers of all ages. Pay bills, mail strike or no June 30 is still the due date for residential tax bills and water

bills, despite the postal service disruption. Payments can be delivered in person to the Municipal Centre. Think pink or trash will stink The grace period for phasing out North Grenville’s green garbage bag tags has ended, meaning all residents must now use the pink bag tags, which cost $1.75 each. Any leftover green tags can be exchanged for new pink tags at the Municipal Centre, with residents paying the 25cent difference. Dandelion green thumb

Fire safety for the hearing impaired Some 25,000 people in Leeds and Grenville have a hearing impairment, posing a particular challenge to fire prevention efforts. “If you can’t hear the alarm, you can’t get out,” noted Interim Fire Chief Harold Workman. The county is looking into developing an alarm system that will alert those with hearing problems in times of danger.

If you want to make a bunch of chickens happy, spread new hay on the floor of their chicken coop. Don’t just run in there and dump a load of hay in front of them, however, or some of them will have heart attacks and keel over. Speak in an even tone as you slowly enter the room, pitchfork of hay in hand. Then softly and gently spread the hay around the floor, taking care to cover the particularly wet spots around the water feeder. Chickens hate getting wet. But they can ruin a layer of hay in about a day with their manure so you will likely have to come back again tomorrow with another load. The chickens’ propensity for heart attacks is just one reason why I prefer turkeys. Chickens also peck your feet and hands when you are trying to fill up their feeders. Turkeys just stand beside you as you fiddle with the strings on the feed bag and struggle to lift and pour the 40kg of feed into the metal

Alumni from throughout the 75-year history of North Grenville District High School (NGDHS) will have one last chance to walk the halls and reminisce about their high school days at the grand reunion celebration planned for Saturday September 17, 2011. “This will be an opportunity for the alumni and citizens of North Grenville to say goodbye to a dear old friend,” said Dan Maxwell of the NGDHS Reunion

Committee in a presentation at last Monday’s North Grenville council meeting. In September 2012, the new high school building on Concession Road will welcome its first class of students. Visitors can tour the present school, located on Prescott Street in Kemptville, from 2 to 4 p.m., and return that evening for a reception from 6 to 11 p.m. Maxwell said the committee is using social media such as Facebook to connect with as many alumni as they can find – and there are plenty out there. Former students are encouraged to join the Face-

book group “NGDHS 75th Anniversary Reunion” and join in the class activities. Registration forms to attend the reunion are available from local merchants and can be dropped off at the school office. The committee expects online registration to soon launch at www.ngdhs75. ca. Registration deadline is August 30. Tickets are $30 per person or $50 per couple, and include admission to the tour and reception. Former NGDHS teacher Graeme Roy is looking forward to the chance to see former students and colleagues and “say

goodbye to the old girl.” The committee welcomes any photos from the school’s history for a slide show during the reception. Photos can be submitted through the website or emailed to For more than 15 years, the reunion committee has awarded bursaries of $1,000 to graduating students, and Maxwell said any profit realized from the reunion would go toward the bursary fund. The group is also looking into providing a legacy gift for the new school. The school was founded in 1936.

Jazz cafe at Metcalfe Public


If music is food for the soul then students at Metcalfe Public School are enjoying a feast. Osgoode residents have been enjoying the music of the Osgoode Township High School Jazz Band for years. This past May, the newly created Metcalfe Public School jazz band and the students and parents were able to join with the high school jazz band for a great musical performance. Metcalfe Public School has had, for years, a strong and enthusiastic music department.

This year, the school introduced jazz to its musical students with the creation of the Metcalfe Public School jazz band. Music teacher Carol Ann Stewart has hosted, along with the Osgoode Township High School jazz band, a special evening of jazz over the years at the Trinity Bible Church. The event is called the Jazz Cafe. This year, the organizers of the annual evening of jazz decided to hold it at the Metcalfe Public School gymnasium. Volunteers transformed the gymnasium into the Jazz Cafe. The big day was May 27. What made the evening so special was the performance of the newly formed



*Cabinetry excluded *Special orders require payment in full prior to order being placed

Metcalfe Public School jazz band. “It was awesome,� Stewart said. “I knew it was a success when I needed to call for more coffee,� she joked. The new jazz band is made up of Grade 7 and 8 students. Cathy Graham, a parent and member of the Band Boosters for the Osgoode Township High School Band, said, “They played an excellent performance, showcasing a talented group of young musicians who have only been playing their instruments for a short time.� Graham estimates there were around 175 people at the jazz cafe. Getting young children to take an interest in music in general and jazz in particular is not always easy. “I have to be encouraging all the time,� Graham said. “As time goes on the younger children will want to be in the jazz band.� She added that the parents see what their children are able to do and they are very supportive. The high school jazz band has been around for years. Directed by Craig

Sheridan, the band is made up of talented students from Grades 9 to 12. “We are always trying to get more involved with the elementary schools,� said Sheridan. The band director pointed out that he will be losing several Grade 12 students this year from the band as they graduate. Fortunately, some of them have brothers and sisters who will be moving up from Metcalfe Public. In a sense, the public school will help focus the talent and direction of students with musical abilities. When they go into Grade 9, the idea of continuing their music will not be so foreign to them. Meanwhile Graham has already started to make plans for the public school’s next big performance. She is thinking about a Christmas concert called “A Regal Celebration.� The concert would take students in a different direction as they dive into Christmas music.

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.

She remembers when there was no formal girls hockey league in Kemptville. “This will be the 18th season for the Kemptville Storm; however the history of girls hockey in Kemptville reaches back to the 1970’s when local girls created their own informal mixed age pick-up league,” said Bennett. By the 1980’s and 1990’s the informal league had disappeared. But interest in the idea of a girls league was still high in Kempville, and girls were joining boys teams. There were a few players who were not all that happy to have to play their favourite sport on a boys team. Robin Sheedy and Melissa Bennett, Sarah’s older sister, were two eleven-

year-old hockey players who wanted a girls team. Robin remembers, “The boys were not always welcoming.” In 1994 Robin had already decided that Kemptville needed a girls league. “It was too far to drive into Nepean each week,” she said. Robin had started her hockey journey as a ringette player. She then switched to hockey and played for the Kemptville Royal Bank boys team and the Nepean girls team in the 1993-1994 season. Sarah explained how the league came into being. “Robin convinced Melissa, who at the time was playing with her brother on the Kemptville Jarvis team, that they needed to start a girls team.” The girls managed to get their parents involved, and the girls then organized the team.

Girls hockey keeps growing in North Grenville The first coach for the new team was Debbie Wilson who had been coaching girls hockey in the 1970’s. “It was a lot of fun working with girls at that age,” she remembers. These days Wilson is still involved with girls hockey. She runs the Kemptville Ladies Hockey league. “We still have some of the girls who played on that first Storm team in the ladies league,” she said. Wilson said the plan from the beginning of the Storm was to expand it year after year. Registration was handled by Len Sheedy and the financial end of things was looked after by Brian Lamour. That first team was a challenge. “A few girls had played before,” said Wilson, “but there were a few who could hardly stand up.” Coach Wilson remembers their first game. “In our first game we lost 20 nothing,” she said. “At the end of the season we won the Pee Wee house league championship.”

She has fond memories of those early days. “I still have, after all these years, the sweatshirt the girls gave me with the team picture and all of their signatures.” Rosemary Bennett, a hockey mom, served for three years as a convener on the Ottawa Board. “We are a hockey family,” she said. “We had seven girls in June that year,” she remembers. “We got sponsors and had jerseys. By Christmas we had 15 girls. I think these girls deserve a lot of respect.” The Kemptville District Minor Hockey Association (KDMHA) has focused on growing girls hockey over the years – as part of a successful Trillium grant application of $18,600 in 2003, $12k of this amount was directed to the Storm program for purchasing jerseys, goalie equipment, and holding events such as the “Storm Surge” to attract girls to hockey. “Storm league is a real source of pride for the KDMHA,” said president

Bart Millson. “While many other neighbouring associations have tried to build a similar girls program, nothing parallels the success of the Storm for a mostly rural hockey association as KDMHA.”


Continued from page 16 Len Sheedy and the two girls came up with the name and the colours of the teams sweaters. “The Anaheim Ducks were popular back then,” remembers Sheedy. “So we went with purple and gold.” Next, a logo had to be designed. “We sat around and designed the logo. It was a puck shooting snowflakes. It is well entrenched these days,” he said. “I am very happy about it.” An Atom team was created, featuring two lines of players and one reluctant goalie. Melissa had previously played forward with her brother but, she remembers, “No one wanted to play net and I was one of the few who could skate, so I ended up as goalie.” Melissa borrowed goalie equipment for the season. That first year the inaugural team did well, winning the B division of the playoffs against teams from Ottawa, Kanata, Aylmer, Nepean, Gloucester and Brockville.

Schuck, Garth James It is with great sadness that the family of Garth James Schuck announce his tragic and unexpected passing on Sunday, May 22, 2010 at the age of 24 years. Garth will always be lovingly remembered by parents Elsie and Gary, his sister Tara, brother Ryan (Becky and nephew Cohen), daughter Emmi, and grandparents Ernie and Helen Schuck. Garth was born November 27, 1986. He attended grew up in Kemptville and spent his last years in Edmonton, Alberta. A memorial service celebrating Garth’s life will be held June 26th at 3:00 p.m. at the North Grenville Community Church in Kemptville.

Happy 75th birthday to an Angel Angel Addis nee: Angeltvedt born June 22, 1936 in Provost Alberta was raised on a large farm with her four siblings and parents from Norway. She travelled the world extensively with family and while in the air force as a recreation specialist, this slim, blue eyed blond had a hand in modeling in France. She married Kenneth John Addis (deceased) in 1959 in Germany and raised three children, Ken Jr., Deena and Sean and has two grandchildren, Zack and Kristin. Angel has been heavily involved with sports, politics, volunteering with the horticultural club, flower competitions and crafts and for years grew over 40 different vegetables in her garden in which she donated many baskets to the community for fundraising. She believes truly in giving back. We as her grandchildren and children thank her for her support, encouragement and wisdom—but most of all we thank her for her love, faith and hope. A very happy 75th birthday to our angel Your Family CL24872-24-11
