KNIGHTS SQUASH GIANTS IN GRENVILLE BOWL North Grenville Knights nose tackle Jon Fequet evades the South Grenville offensive line during the Champions for Kids Grenville Bowl at Riverside Park in Kemptville on Sept. 27. The Knights junior football team defeated the junior South Grenville Giants 26-12. North Grenville’s Will Monkhouse set the tone by returning a punt for a touchdown early in the first quarter, and Drew McGuire added a touchdown catch later in the game. Solid work from the defensive line led North Grenville to their second straight win of the young season in front of an energetic crowd of supporters from NGDHS, Kemptville Public School and South Branch Elementary School.

RUNNING FOR SARAH

A computerized tracking system up and running at the Kemptville Fire Department will “take the guesswork out of response,” said Kemptville Fire Chief Paul Hutt. First Responder provides real-time updates about firefighters’ availability and location. Having this information on hand allows the department to better manage its resources and respond appropriately to a wide range of calls, Hutt explained. Eventually, the department will be able to gauge the number of firefighters needed for a specific call and put a cap on those responding. For example, if only a few firefighters are required for a minor traffic accident, others in the area – who in the past would have responded since they did not know who else was en route – would be told to stay put. “Right now the system’s not able to do that. But down the road, it’s called running assignments, and that’s something North Grenville hasn’t gotten into just yet,” Hutt said. Early next year, the chief will identify running assignments for the department so that the response level will appropriate for the call type. The new system will help the department run more efficiently and make better use of its volunteers, Hutt said. “I’m excited about it. It does take the guesswork out. In a volunteer program, it’s not like a scheduled work shift, if you will. So this will give me notification or early advancement if we’re low on numbers. Or, if we are high on numbers, I can start cancelling trucks or what have you. So it works both ways,” he said. Tracking firefighters’ availability is part of the gradual modernization of the department. “It was an idea that sparked from when I was at Ottawa Fire,” Hutt explained. “But just for the record, we are up and running before they are.”

The survey asks for basic information such as if a resident lives in an urban, rural area or a rural subdivision. The survey also breaks down the ages of those responding into four age groups: 18 and under, 1939, 40-64, 65 and over. The survey also includes a list of 13 categories and residents are asked to rate each one as far as what kind of priority it should be given.

North Grenville residents will have a chance to tell the municipality what kind of police services they would like to see in the future. The municipality’s police services board launched a unique survey on Wednesday, Sept. 28. The survey will find its way into the mailboxes of every North Grenville resident over the next two weeks. The Ontario Provincial Police design their services for a community, based on information given to them by the local police services board, school boards, local councils and a satisfaction survey from the area. North Grenville will be negotiating a new policing contract with the Ontario Provincial Police in 2013. Finding out what residents want is the key to having the kind of policing service that serve residents best. “Building on the work of North Grenville Police Services Boards over the past dozen years, supported by the dedicated and professional officers of the Ontario provincial Police, I am proud today to announce a community driven strategy that will provide a direct say by the residents of North Grenville of how they want their policing tax dollars spent, and to which components of police work they feel are most beneficial to our municipality,” said Bruce Harrison the chair of the North Grenville Police Service Board. Harrison explained the survey will give direction and thought to what the Police Services Board will be taking to the O.P.P. when it is time to make a new policing contract. North Grenville Councillor Terry Butler is the council representative on the police services board. “We have excellent policing and excellent policing costs money,” he said. Butler believes the community has no complaints about the kind of policing services it has been receiving however, “it is always a good idea to get public input.” The survey has been broken down into seven basic community values that are rated on a scale of one to five to determine how important that particular item is to residents. The seven items are:

Recognize youth leaders

A

cross Ontario, and right here in North Grenville, young individuals are working hard to make a difference in their own communities and around the world. The Ontario Community Newspapers Association (OCNA), through The Advance, is currently accepting nominations for the 2011 Ontario Junior Citizens of the Year Awards. Founded in 1950, the OCNA is a non-profit industry association representing over 300 community newspapers throughout Ontario, including this one. Coordinated by the OCNA since 1981, the Ontario Junior Citizen of the Year Awards Program has recognized the best of Ontario’s youth with the help of sponsorship from TD Canada Trust and Direct Energy and support from the Office of the Lieutenant Governor of Ontario. Do you know a young person who stands out from the rest? Nominate a special individual who goes above and beyond what is expected of someone their age, someone who invests their spare time in community service, someone who looks past their own needs and inspires

those around them. ‘Good kids’ can be found everywhere. They are our sons, daughters, nieces, nephews, grandchildren, students, team players and employees. Nominating these young leaders for a Junior Citizen award is a chance for them to stand in the spotlight, to be recognized for their dedication and selflessness. The Junior Citizen awards program is open to youths between the ages of six and 17. Nominations will be accepted until Wednesday, Nov. 30, 2011. Up to 12 nominees will be selected as the final recipients for the 2011 Ontario Junior Citizen of the Year Award and they will be recognized at a special ceremony in Spring 2011. Nomination forms and further information is available online at www.ocna.org/junior_citizen, or by calling the OCNA office at 905-639-8720, ext. 239. Remember, today’s youth are tomorrow’s leaders. There’s one in every crowd and we think they deserve some recognition and encouragement to continue making a difference in their communities.

Helping who’s next and other Canadian innovations

O

ne of those new roadside places along the 401 has a Starbucks in it. Across the room, facing it, is a Tim Hortons. Intrigued by this highway culture clash, I checked out the lineups at both and headed for the Starbucks. The lineup wasn’t long but ahead of me a European tourist was elaborately ordering for a large group. As he began asking detailed questions about the pastries, I wandered over to Tim’s, where the lineup was amazingly short and in no time at all I heard the words “Can I help who’s next?” A couple of hours on the 401 can do strange things to your mind, which may be why I began mulling over what she had just said. Not only mulling, but mulling grammatically. “Can I help who’s next?” Is that a sentence? Possibly, with the words “who’s next” functioning as an objective clause. It just sounds clunky, because of the words “can I help who.” But it would be wrong to say “Can I help whom is next?” because “whom” can’t be the subject of the objective clause. See what the 401 does to you? Now a language purist – and you read their letters to the editor all the time,

complaining about pronunciation on the CBC – would say that the proper form would be “May I help the person who is next?” But that’s clearly worse. It sounds like something that would be said upstairs on Upstairs, Downstairs. And simply to say “Next?” seems a bit abrupt. So when you come right down to it, “Can I help who’s next?” does the job pretty well. It’s polite, it’s informal and everybody understands it, which is maybe the most important function of language. It’s interesting to ponder where the expression came from – or at least it’s interesting if you are driving on the 401 with nothing to do except stay in your lane. Twenty years ago nobody said “Can

I help who’s next?” Now everybody says it, except in airport lineups where nobody is ever next because the line never moves. Only a conspiracy theorist would think that this came about by decree. It is highly improbable that there is a manual given out to all employees of Tim Hortons and every other place where people stand in line ordering employees to say “Can I help who’s next?” More likely somebody somewhere said “Can I help who’s next?” Maybe they said it by mistake. Someone else heard, and said to himself “Hey, that will work in my coffee shop!” And he was so relieved that he no longer had to say: “Whoever is next in line it’s your turn,” or something like that. And then somebody else heard that and within a matter of months, probably, we arrived at the place we are now, where we all stand in line waiting to be Who’s Next. A similar thing happened even more recently with “Have a nice day.” For a long time, you heard it everywhere, to the point that the phrase became meaningless, but lately there has been a shift. Now people say “Have a nice rest of your day,” which is at least more precise.

It suggests that the speaker has no idea how the first part of your day went but is wishing you well for the remainder of it. These are but two of many examples of how adaptable our language is, and while the language snobs complain about people using “like” instead of “as” and “that” instead of “which” – not to mention dropping the last comma in a series – the net effect of change is to make the language easier to understand, if not more elegant. Not everybody likes that, but this is a free society and there is nothing to stop people from speaking as elegantly as they want, just so long as it doesn’t confuse anyone standing in line.

Sunday is a busy day for us. When my father was sick in 2007, we began a weekly family dinner ritual that we continue today. It is a great opportunity to reconnect with family after a busy week. Most weeks we have 15 to 20 guests at Sunday dinner. This is why I didn’t make it to the Kemptville Kinsmen Farmers’ Market until a couple of weeks ago. I was just too darned busy. But let’s face it. The Farmer is the chef at our house. All I have to do is clean house, set the table, make a salad and some appetizers, and then clean up after the event. I don’t really have to be in the kitchen Sunday afternoon. In fact, he prefers that I am not there. An invisible line exists between the kitchen island and the stove. No one is allowed into the cook’s area on Sundays. For some reason, we ended up with far too many chickens in our freezers this year. We were brainstorming, the Farmer and I, about marketing our meat. I suggested the

Farmers’ Market. Finally, I got to go. As a vendor at the Farmers’ Market, I didn’t have much opportunity to shop. I did a quick run-through, however, and I can report that the KKFM is very impressive this year. Vendors offer fresh fruits and vegetables, farm-raised chicken, turkey, beef, pork and lamb, as well as maple syrup, fudge, fresh flowers, jewellery and handicrafts. Don’t eat lunch before you go to the market. You will want to save your appetite so you can sample the Thai spring rolls, samosas, jams and

chutney, homemade pizzas, pies and cookies. The first week I was in attendance, a great blues vibe was permeating the scene. I thought someone had a really good CD on the speaker. Then I saw the singer. He was sitting at the end of the lane in the sunshine, playing his guitar and singing into the microphone. Wonderful! The next week, Doug Hendry and friends were playing Irish music on the fiddle and mandolin. In 30 degrees of Indian summer. Bless them. We have a really good thing going here, at the Farmers’ Market. Check it out. You have just one more week! After Thanksgiving, it’s all over until next year. Many Farmwife readers have stepped up to introduce themselves over the past few weeks. Thanks for that! It’s great to meet the people who are reading the stories. We have sold out of our Thanksgiving turkeys, thank you. Next year we will raise more. Some farmers tell me that turkeys are dumb and difficult to raise. I find them lovely. Granted, if you

let them go free, they will run amok into coyote territory. The wild turkeys aren’t much help. More than once I have caught them whispering to the domestic turkeys through the chicken wire, telling them of life in the forest. When the turkeys do manage to escape from their area of the barn, however, they tend to go straight for the neighbours’ house. There, they climb up onto the porch, peek into the kitchen window and terrorize the show dogs. The other night our daughter Paulina, who works in an Asian restaurant in Ottawa, was sent to the supermarket to select and buy a live lobster. She called me on the long walk back to the restaurant, obviously upset. ‘I can feel it moving in the bag!’ she said. I told her to thank the lobster, and to try not to think about it. I assured her that its end would come quickly and without suffering. I will do the same with the turkeys. I love them, with their gentle ways and their melodic gobbling. On October 5th, I will gently tuck them in their cages, send them on holiday, and thank them for their contribution to our Thanksgiving Sunday dinner.

When It comes to Bread...

BLOOD DONOR CLINIC IN KEMPTVILLE The Canadian Blood Services held a blood donor clinic in Kempville at the W.B. George Centre on Friday, Sept. 30. The afternoon resulted in 136 units of blood being collected. Each unit has the potential to save three lives. That means, the blood donated in Kemptville could save more than 400 lives. In this photo, Vanessa Vingoe a phlebotomist prepares to take blood from Patricia Price from Oxford Station. This was her 23rd blood donation. The afternoon was sponsored by the Kemptville Players who are getting ready for their fall play, the Mousetrap, Nov. 3, 4 and 5.

The NEW Sonic & Orlando 2012 Chevrolet The 2012 Orlando was designed to strike the right balance between what you need and what you want. It has three rows of theatre- style seating, which means there's plenty of space inside for your entire family and a few friends. Or fold down the 2nd and 3rd row seats to make room for almost anything you might pick up along the way. And because Orlando is built on the same compact platform as the Chevrolet Cruze, it not only moves through traffic like a small car — it parks like one too. Now that's balance. *Product specification in production may vary from that shown, some features are cost options.

Come test drive one a experience for yours nd elf!!

Some rules are just easier to break. Case in point: the upcoming 2012 Sonic. For one, just look at it. Small car aesthetic conventions? Obviously broken. Secondly, uncommon refine- ments to steering and sus- pension give Sonic a responsiveness that sets it apart from its peers. Compact-car ride and handling standards? Shattered. But are there any rules this little car doesn't break? Yes - Sonic obeys the laws of physics. So you can see it right now... but it'll be a bit before you get to hear it. Coming fall 2011.

Does Kemptville need another gas station? Canadian Tire seems to think so. The retailer asked North Grenville council to rezone a portion of the land at the former Canadian Tire site on County Road 43 to permit the construction of a gas bar. If built, the new station would join the five existing stations on or near County Rd 43 between the Colonnade mall and County Road 44. Senior planner Pam Whyte from Delcan Corporation, representing Canadian Tire, told council the gas bar design includes three islands and six pumps. North Grenvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s senior planner Phil Gerrard said the proposed gas bar fits in the high-traffic, auto-centric highway corridor and therefore recommended the council approve the zoning change However, some residents of the subdivision abutting the property worry that a noisy, busy gas bar would disturb their quality of life. Speaking for his neighbours, Gary Nicholl of Gabrielle Court said that a gas bar would create light pollution, excessive noise, and security issues, along with increased traffic and pollution. Those issues will be considered during the site approval process, Gerrard said, thanking the residents for voicing their objections early. The municipality would insist that the wooded buffer between the Canadian Tire site and the subdivision remain intact, Gerrard said. He did however point out that the homeowners chose to move in

beside a busy retailer and therefore should expect some light and noise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Things have changed,â&#x20AC;? countered Ydo Seltitz of Westerra Way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a major subdivision there now (and residents) want to keep their property values up. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to protect the residents as much as the commercial entities.â&#x20AC;? Staff tries to minimize the â&#x20AC;&#x153;interfaceâ&#x20AC;? between residential and commercial spaces, said planning director Forbes Symon. But commercial development at the site in question is â&#x20AC;&#x153;pragmaticâ&#x20AC;? and appropriate, he said. Council had the option to deny the rezoning change and kill the planned gas bar, but the curent zoning already permits a wide range of industrial uses, noted Coun. Barb Tobin. A hotel or truck stop could be even noisier and draw higher traffic than a gas bar, she said. Coun. Tim Sutton proposed a compromise that would limit the gas bar land to just a few acres. Deputy Mayor Ken Finnerty said he had heard from many residents complaining that Kemptville already had enough gas stations, but he was swayed by Tobinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s argument that if denied, Canadian Tire could easily sell the land to someone who could legally put in something â&#x20AC;&#x153;a lot worse,â&#x20AC;? like the junkyard that used to be there. Council voted unanimously to rezone the land to permit a gas bar. The next step will be for Canadian Tire to submit a formal site plan application, during which residents can again voice their concerns. As to the question of whether Kemptville needs another gas station, Gerrard said thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something the market will decide.

Kemptville convenience store robbed at gunpoint STAFF Mac’s Convenience Store on Rideau Street in Kemptville was robbed at gunpoint overnight on Oct. 1. At approximately 2:40 a.m., a lone male wearing a grey hoodie and balaclava entered the store, pointed a handgun at the clerk, and demanded cash and cigarettes. The clerk was unharmed, and the suspect fled on foot. The Ontario Provincial Police Emergency Response Team, the Canine Unit and the Crime Unit responded to the 911 call. The investigation is ongoing. ROAD RAGE A road rage incident on County Road 43 led to an arrest on Sept. 27. Shortly before noon, a westbound Chevrolet Cavalier cut off a Buick while trying to pass. The passing Cavalier clipped the front

left corner of the Buick. The two vehicles stopped and the driver of the Cavalier became aggressive towards the other driver and passenger. Several women noticed the altercation and called police, who responded to the call and discovered that the driver of the Cavalier was on probation. The driver was arrested and taken to the Kemptville OPP detachment, where he was charged with breach of probation, causing a disturbance and careless driving. LOCAL WOMEN DIES IN COLLISION Suzanne O’Connor of North Grenville has been killed in a single vehicle accident on County Road 18. The accident, west of Oxford Mills, occurred at 5:15 p.m. on Oct. 1. The Ontario Provincial Police, Kemptville Fire Department and the Leeds and Grenville Emergency Services responded

Protect your family from fire ELIZABETH GREENBERG The Kemptville Fire Department is urging residents to take responsibility for protecting their families from fire. Fire Prevention Week, Oct. 9 to 15, is an ideal time to remind residents to get involved. “Too many people have become complacent about fire safety,” said Chief Paul Hutt. “People need to take action to keep their families safe from fire.” The Kemptville Fire Department recommends the following tips to protect families from fire: • The leading cause of residential fires in Ontario is unattended cooking. Prevent these fires by staying in the kitchen when cooking. • It’s the law in Ontario to have working smoke alarms on every storey of the home and outside all sleeping areas. The fire department also recommends installing a smoke alarm in every bedroom. Test smoke alarms every month and change the batteries at least once a year or whenever the low battery warning chirps. • Develop a home fire escape plan with your family so that everyone knows what do if a fire

Spot fires along County Road 44 The Kemptville Fire Department had an unusual call last week. There were a total of eight fires in the ditch along County Road 44 going north towards Ottawa. There were even a few in the ditch along Malakoff Road. Fire Chief Paul Hutt said that there must have been a vehicle

occurs. The theme of this year’s Fire Prevention Week is Protect Your Family From Fire. The Kemptville Fire Department will be holding a number of events throughout the week to raise public awareness about the importance of working smoke alarms. The events include an information session on Tuesday, Oct. 11 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. for seniors in our community to ask questions about home escape planning, smoke alarms, carbon monoxide alarms, and to try their hand at using a fire extinguisher. That same day from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., there will be an open house and live fire demonstration at the fire station. View fire safety displays on home escape planning, explore an interactive hazard house, learn about smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, try to use a fire extinguisher. Also, tour the fire trucks, meet the new fire chief, Paul Hutt, and take a photo with Sparky the Fire Dog. For more information about Fire Prevention Week, call the fire department at 258-2438. Elizabeth Greenberg is the Fire Prevention Officer for the Kemptville Fire Department. driving north that for whatever reason was creating sparks. The sparks flew into the dry ditches and started small grass fires . “There was no evidence of an accelerant,” he said, which suggests that the fires were accidental and not deliberately set. The fires, when they would take hold, covered a 5 x 5 foot area. “We see this kind of thing occasionally,” said Hutt.

to the collision. The initial investigation revealed that O’Connor was traveling eastbound when she lost control of her 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier and struck a hydro pole. OVERALL CRIME DOWN, BUT TRAFFIC OFFENCES UP IN 2011: OPP Overall crime is down slightly in North Grenville as compared to last year, but traffic offences are up, reported Insp. Paul Bedard, Detachment Commander of the Kemptville OPP, at the Sept. 26 council meeting. By this point in 2010, the detachment had responded to 3,077 calls for service, compared to 3,048 this year. There were 77 “violent calls” – which include assaults and sexual assaults – by this time in 2010, compared to 61 so far this year. The clearance rate – which refers to the percentage of cases solved by police – is

90 per cent for violent calls in 2011. Break and enters and theft from vehicles have decreased, and property crime calls – encompassing theft, break and enter, and fraud – are down from 270 in 2010 to 206 in 2011. The clearance rate of 28 per cent for 2011 property crimes is “well above” the provincial average, Bedard said. He noted that the police have laid 224 Criminal Code charges this year, as opposed to 216 by this point in 2010, meaning the police are laying more charges despite responding to fewer calls. Traffic offences – including alcoholrelated incidents – have seen “a remarkable increase” from 1,639 in the first nine months of 2010 to 1,934 so far in 2011, Bedard said. As Kemptville’s population continues to grow, Bedard expects to see calls for service increase, particularly on the roadways.

The United Way of Leeds and Grenville contributes to several agencies in the area. The North Grenville Accessibility Transportation, Kemptville Youth Centre and Community Living North Grenville. Last week, on Tuesday evening, Sept.27, the United Way hosted their North Grenville Gala, a fundraising event designed to not only help support the agencies

the organization helps but to also share a wonderful evening with area residents celebrating the many small businesses and individuals who support the United Way. The event was held at the North Grenville Municipal Centre. The United Way enjoys the support of communities through out Leeds and Grenville. “It is a partnership,” explained Judi Baril of the United Way. Over 200 tickets were sold. “We laughed for an hour and a half,” said Baril. “That

was the purpose of the evening-to get a good feeling.” The main attraction for the event was a performance by comedy hypnotist Robert Maxwell. “The people in Kemptville were wonderful,” said Maxwell. “I love performing in a small town. The people are always very friendly.” Maxwell said he had so much fun, he would come back to Kemptville anytime. The hypnotist brought 14 people up on the stage to be part of his performance.

Stacey Tenbult, the executive director of the Kemptville Youth Centre was one of them. “I was very nervous,” she remembers. “I was up on the stage for an hour but it felt like just ten minutes.” Brenda Hill is the branch manager for the Kemptville Scotiabank. She is also a director for North Grenville Accessibility Transportation. She was at the gala with several of her staff. “It was a really good turnout with good company,” she said.” Everyone enjoyed themselves.”

Brighter future for youth centre thanks to local electricians J.P. ANTONACCI jp.antonacci@metroland.com

Every night from Oct. 29 to 31, the basement of the Kemptville Youth Centre (KYC) will be transformed into a haunted house. This won’t be any ordinary house, however. Thanks to the electricians at TruLine Electrical Services, visitors will have a truly terrifying experience as spooky strobe lights flash in sync with a spine-tingling soundtrack, and shaking animatronic props startle even the steeliest souls. Rigging up the haunted house is only the latest way that TruLine has helped the youth centre. In November 2010, the company volunteered to completely strip and rewire the new building on Oxford Street, allowing KYC to redo the kitchen, create a computer lab, and use the basement as a teen-only space. After moving to Oxford Mills a few years ago, TruLine president Beverly Crawford went looking for ways to get involved in the community. At a car wash for the food bank last year, she heard about the youth centre, and met with executive director Stacey Tenbult to learn more. Crawford, who trained in tool

and die out of high school and worked in auto engineering before founding TruLine in 2002, was impressed with the youth centre and its passionate leader. “I think (the youth centre) a great idea, because I hate to see the kids with nothing to do,” she said. “It gives them a place to go, a safe haven if needed.” The TruLine team surveyed the centre and found they had a big job ahead of them. All the wiring had to be upgraded, which meant effectively gutting the entire building. Ten electricians and apprentices volunteered their time, often on weekends, to install lights and panels, fix outlets and switches, lay down data cables, and wire in the furnace and air conditioning. At full price, the project would have cost KYC almost $12,000. Tenbult was overwhelmed by Crawford’s support. “She spoke to me and said, whatever you need, let us know and we’ll have a crew in,” Tenbult said. “It’s been really fabulous having them come in.” “All the guys donated their time. They got excited about it. It’s something that’s fun to do, and we just like to get involved,” explained Crawford. “Hey, I’ve

Tenbult’s tries to keep KYC in the public eye. “Our community has been absolutely generous to us. This big move put us back into the spotlight, showing how many youth attend the centre, what services we offer,” she said. “The work that TruLine has done is something to put into the spotlight because they didn’t need to do that – they helped us out of the kindness of their hearts.”

Beth Donovan Hospice hosts extrvaganza JOSEPH MORIN joe.morin@metroland.com

The Beth Donovan Hospice is planning for their twelfth annual 2011 Harvest Moon Fall Extravaganza. The big night is Oct. 15 at the North Grenville Municipal Centre. The evening features a roast beef dinner hosted by the Knights of Columbus and a silent auction as well as the everpopular cake auction. The evening is sponsored by B. Baird water conditioning and family. The Hospice office is the place to get advance tickets. There are not many expected to be left to sell at the door. Tickets are $40 each. “This fundraiser is to increase people’s awareness of the hospice,” said hospice executive director Dawn Rodger. “It is a great time. We celebrate our work with the community,” she said. The hospice also wants to give new families who come to North Grenville a look at what the hospice does. “We want to reach out to the new families in the area who might need us,” said Rodger. The entertainment for the evening will be Nick Gummeson. He was at the extravaganza last year and organizers wanted him back this year. Between the great food, silent auction and the cake auction there will be lots for diners to do. The cake auction is especially interest-

ing. “They are the most incredible cakes,” said Rodger. The Beth Donovan Hospice has a long history in the community. It began in Merrickville in 1992 Just three years later the hospice was continuing to grow. Volunteers donated 2,550 hours of service to the community. The hospice moved to Kemptville in 1997. They rented office space on ASA Street. One half the rent was covered by the building’s landlord Marcel Sevigny and the other half was donated to the hospice by three local businesses: The Tallman Truck Centre, Macton Electric and DTI Precision Products. Thirty-nine client families were looked after by the hospice and 2,960 hours were put in by volunteers. Provincial funding had been raised to a meager $5,500. As the year 2000 approached, government funding had rose to $13,000 and the hospice received the first part of a threeyear Trillium grant. Forty-six client families were served and 4,200 hours were put in by volunteers. In 2003 service was extended to the former Rideau Ward in the City of Ottawa. The provincial funding had increased to $27,000 but that amount only subsidized 18 per cent of their annual budget. As funding and interest increased, the hospice was able to renew its dream of building a residential hospice.

Recycle your e-waste during Waste Reduction Week What do you have that is “Too Good to Waste?” That’s the theme of Waste Reduction Week, which is held across Canada from Oct. 17 to 23 to encourage communities, businesses, organizations and residents to reduce waste and find or create ways to reuse materials that would

otherwise go into the landfill or transfer station. North Grenville has steadily been improving how it diverts materials from the landfill. Over the next few years, the municipality aims to meet the provincial goal of 60 per cent diversion. As part of

this effort, the North Grenville Waste Reduction Committee encourages residents to participate in Waste Reduction Week by putting unused electronics or “e-waste” to the curb with their garbage and recycling. Residents are asked to put their e-waste to the curb on their designated garbage/recycling day and to call RBS Electronics at 258-2613 to arrange for pickup. Volunteers from RBS and the Kemptville Youth Centre (KYC) will collect the e-waste after 3 p.m. Over 44 items, including computers, televisions, DVD players, and handheld devices are included in the e-waste pickup. Electronics contain many materials that can be reused, but also plastics and heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, and mercury that are toxic to our health and the environment.

High school time capsule captures memories When the students and staff of North Grenville District High School move into their new building next September, they will take a piece of the old school with them. Many pieces, in fact. Last Friday, principal Steve Sharp and student council prime minister Katya Desormeaux sealed a time capsule that captures a school in transition. Every class contributed something to the capsule, which is about the size of an old-fashioned milk jug and is chock full of mementoes ranging from sports jerseys, photographs and coins to commencement programs, student artwork and poetry. When the capsule is dug up from under the stage in the cafetorium fifty years from now, future students can marvel at how hard or easy the work in their predecessorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; math textbook was, and compare a 2011 map of Kemptville with what might well be a bustling metropolis by then. Current students who come back to their alma mater in half a century will be able to travel back in time by reading letters they wrote to their future selves when they were just about to begin life

after high school. The entire student body signed a poster board that went into the capsule, forever commemorating their time at North Grenville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing this sort of thing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; capturing the memories and stuff that goes on at the school. In 50 years we might forget about things, but we can open (the time capsule) and relive the memories,â&#x20AC;? said Dylan Cooper, a Grade 11 student who worked with classmate Dan Williams to draw a North Grenville logo peppered with present-day slang so the meaning of words like sick, dope and gnarly will not be lost on future generations. Also not lost will be the scholar gargoyles and carved stone â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Kemptville High Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sign from the old building, which have been removed and will be mounted in the cafetorium as a link to the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rich history, Sharp said. Cooper, who will be part of the inaugural graduating class at the new school, said he and his classmates almost feel like pioneers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re proud of,â&#x20AC;? J.P.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty exciting.â&#x20AC;? ister Katya Desormeaux seal a time capsule that will be buried in the new school and opened in 50 years.

Merrickville students rally around ailing classmate J.P. ANTONACCI jp.antonacci@metroland.com

Sarah Telford may have spent more time in a hospital room than a classroom over the last year and a half, but her classmates at Merrickville Public School (MPS) made sure she knew she was not forgotten. The entire school took part in the Walk/Run for Sarah last Wednesday, Sept. 28 to raise money for the Telford family and remind the Grade 8 student that they are pulling for her to overcome cancer and return to class soon. In April 2010, Sarah was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia.

Superior Curb Appeal: Renovating with good looking classic or modern styles can add architectural distinction or personality. More Comfortable: New technology reduces air flow between the interior and exterior which helps to maintain a more consistent temperature inside your home. Lower Maintenance: Durable designs and modern materials minimize up keep and may be covered by manufacturer warranties for many years. Safe and Secure: Some models offer multiple-point locking systems and have been designed to resist forced entry. Peace and Quiet: High performance windows can stifle some traffic sounds, commercial clatter or other types of noise from outside. Higher Resale Value: All of these benefits may also appeal to potential buyers, so a significant portion of the cost could be recovered when the property is sold.

Explore energy-efficient window coverings The ultimate goal of homeowners may be to install new energyefficient windows on their homes. However, the reality is that new windows can be a costly endeavor, one that’s not necessarily for affordable for homeowners who continue to tighten their purse strings in a struggling economy. There are alternatives to installing new windows, including exploring options in energy-saving window coverings and draperies that can help prevent the exchange of air from inside and outside the home. Because they can be considerably less expensive than replacement windows, energy-saving window coverings are a viable option for those looking to eliminate drafts or preventing summer’s heat from entering the home via windows that aren’t up to snuff. There are several different styles from which to choose that make good alternatives for homeowners. Homeowners can convert traditional drapes into energy-saving

options by making them fit more snugly. By securing the sides and the bottoms of the drapery to the walls with double-sided tape or Velcro(R), the curtains will contain the air that flows from the drafty window. Options also abound for homeowners who prefer blinds or drapes that are energy-efficient. Honeycomb blinds are the new alternative to mini blinds or verticals. They are made from accordion pleated fabric that forms a honeycomb pattern when the blinds are lowered. The doublelayer blinds insulate the windows and can prevent heat or cool air loss. Some accordion blinds are even rated for their efficiency. Black-out drapes can do more than darken a room for those who want to sleep longer in the morning. These drapes can keep hot sunlight out during the summer months, which can lead to a cooler home and less money spent on air conditioning. The same drapes can block drafts in cooler months because of the thickness

of this type of curtain. Individuals who live in warm climates should select drapes and blinds that are light in color so they will reflect the sunlight and prevent rooms from overheating. Awnings or shrubbery placed by west- and south-facing windows can help block even the harshest of the sun’s rays. There are also energy-saving window films that can be applied to insulate windows and/or reflect sunlight. An added barrier between the glass of the window and the interior of the home may be all that’s needed to make temperatures more comfortable. Until drafty windows can be replaced, homeowners can rely on energy-saving window coverings to help alleviate drafts or loss of cool air inside of the home.

Right: Different types of blinds and drapes can be used to provide insulation on drafty windows and prevent energy loss.

Many projects, especially those involving building, demolition, electrical work, or mold remediation, require permits issued by the town, province or city in which the work will be taking place. The purpose of permits and subsequent inspections is often questioned by homeowners looking to circumvent the system. However, building permits are required to ensure public safety, health and welfare as they are affected by building construction, structural strength, zoning, and code requirements. In essence, building permits are how the

government regulates safety and protects both current and future residents of the property. In many cases, homeowners will need to visit the municipal building in their respective towns and apply for a permit. The permit may not immediately be issued. Oftentimes, there is a waiting period during which the project’s legality and safety is examined. Once the project is approved, the applicant will be able to file for the actual permit(s). There is usually a fee or fees for permit application, which covers any clerical work. Work should

Did you know? Although ceiling fans are most associated with warm-weather seasons, most can be effective throughout the winter months as well, helping circulate warm air throughout a room in much the same way they circulate cool air during the warmer weather. Most of today’s fans have a switch near the motor housing that alters the direction in which the fan’s blades turn. When a ceiling fan is used in the summer, its blades push the air downward, moving cool air around the room. The air blowing around the room is what cools people within the room. When the blades’ direction is altered, the blades then push the air upward toward the ceiling. This drives the hot air, which typically rises to the top, down toward the edges of the room. This helps circulate warm air throughout a room, making for more even heating. What’s more, this improved heat circulation helps combat window sweating that results from condensation on the glass when hot air is not effectively circulated throughout a home.

Depending on building codes, inspections of the work may need to take place after all of the project is completed or during certain phases. For example, the building of a deck may require inspections after footings are installed and secured, and before the upper portions of the decking materials are attached. If an inspection takes place afterward, the inspector will be looking for Before starting any project, make sure key code issues to determine you have your permits in order. whether the work was completed

successfully. If a contractor was used, he or she may have to be present at the time of the inspection. If the work passes, an approval will be given and put on record. If the work fails, applicable repairs will have to be made and a re-inspection will be scheduled. Should a home be put on the market, all permits may need to be on file or in the homeowners’ possession in order for a certificate of occupancy to be issued to the new buyer. Failure to have permits can hold up the process or result in fines.

Permits an important consideration in home improvements


Twelve green home improvements that help conserve money dows and doors. 5. Replace air filters. Your HVAC system likely has filters inside that trap dirt and contaminants. Replacing the filters leads to cleaner indoor air and helps the unit run more efficiently. 6. Power strips: Stock up on power strips and plug all of your peripherals and computer equipment into these strips. This way when you want to power down everything completely, you simply turn off the power button on the strip. This ensures no devices are drawing power even in the off position, which many do. 7. Install fans. Fans aren’t just useful in the summer. In the winter, the blades can be set to rotate in the opposite direction and help draw warm air into the room, heating more efficiently. 8. Rainwater barrels: Set up rainwater barrels at the downspouts of your home’s gutter system. These barrels collect water that can be used to water indoor and outdoor plants, or even wash the car. Some feature a spigot to which you can directly connect a garden hose. 9. Plant trees.Trees are good for the environment in many ways, producing necessary oxygen for life and offering food and living areas for wildlife. Trees can also shade a home during the warm weather, helping reduce energy consumption. 10. Glass fireplace doors: Install glass fireplace doors, which are safer than fire-

place screens. They’ll also help protect against heat loss up the chimney when there isn’t a fire lit. 11. Buy a solar cover. Warm up your spa all season long with a solar cover, which helps keep debris out of the water, too. Solar covers reduce the need to fire up the heater to warm the water. 12. Dog waste composter: Create a method to safely dispose of dog waste without having to toss it in plastic bags in the trash. There are devices that can be bur-

ied into the ground to serve as a dog waste receptacle. Or you can make one of your own by placing a container with a lid that seals on top but has an open bottom. Sprinkle a natural bacteria septic tank product, such as Rid-X(R), down the hole routinely and it will break down the waste and turn it into soil fertilizer. There are a variety of ways to go green with home improvements, whether extensive projects or small fixes.

Making home improvements doesn’t have to mean compromising environmental ideals in the process. There are numerous jobs that a person can do that fit with a green lifestyle. While these improvements help protect the planet, they’ll also help keep a few extra dollars in your wallet. 1. Conserve water. Turn off the tap between brushing teeth or rinsing off dishes. Better yet, install low-flow faucets, showerheads and toilets that reduce the consumption of water in the household. 2. Motion detection: Motion-detector lights can be installed in different rooms of the home and outdoors. Lights will automatically turn on and off depending on the activity in the area, reducing the chances of a light being left on inadvertently and wasting money and energy. 3. Solar panels: You may have been toying with the idea of solar panels for years. They can be installed on the roof or in the yard to power various components of the household, like lights during a traditional power outage or the swimming pool filter. Today it is possible to buy used solar panels, many of which still have a lot of life left to them and are considerably cheaper than new ones. 4. Aluminum-clad storm door: Insulate the entryway of your home with a storm door that will buffer against harsh weather conditions. While you’re creating a more air-tight space, caulk around win-

is in need of additional insulation. Such joists won’t be visible in an adequately insulated attic. • Put up the storm windows. It’s nice to open the windows in the spring and summer and let the warm air waft in through the screens. But when summer is over, it’s time to put up the storm windows once again. Storm windows add an extra layer of protection from the elements and are especially valuable in homes with single-pane glass windows. Homeowners who don’t have storm windows should consider upgrading their existing windows. Such a project isn’t cheap, but newer windows will almost certainly lead to lower heating costs, meaning the project will essentially pay for itself over time. Homeowners who can’t afford to replace all of their windows don’t have to replace them all at once. Instead, replace them a few at a time and make the rooms where you spend the most time each winter the first on the list to receive new windows. • Be diligent with the gutters. Leaves falling from trees is an idyllic image associated primarily with autumn. Unfortunately, when leaves fall they often fall into the gutters. Routinely clean the gutters once the leaves start to fall. Clean gutters will allow snow and rain to effectively drain through the gutters. If the gutters are clogged, snow might have nowhere to go when it begins to melt, and roof damage might result. Such damage is costly but preventable in most instances. One of the easier preventive measures to take is to routinely clean the gutters of leaves and other debris that accumulate during the fall. When cleaning the gutters, make sure they are properly aligned. Poorly aligned gutters can lead to a host of problems. One such problem is flooding. If downspouts are not properly aligned with the rest of the gutters, then water might not be directed away from the home as it’s intended. Instead, water might be directed toward the home, result-

ing in flooding or additional water damage. • Have the furnace cleaned. Experts recommend annual furnace cleanings. Before cold weather arrives, turn the furnace on to

make sure it’s still working. An unpleasant odor should appear when first turning on the furnace, but it shouldn’t last very long. If the odor sticks around, turn

the furnace off and call a professional. Once winter arrives, routinely replace the filters. This makes the furnace operate more efficiently and can also reduce the risk of fire.

When summer draws to a close and autumn arrives, homeowners must place a precedent on readying their homes for the winter months. Often referred to as “winterizing,” the process is meant to ensure a home can withstand harsh winter weather while proving a safe haven from the elements. As autumn arrives, homeowners can take several steps to get their homes ready for whatever winter has to offer with the following tasks. • Fix the leaks. A leaky home will prove an expensive home during the winter months. A home with many leaks will be much colder to inhabit, and homeowners typically turn up the heat to counter drafts that can make a home feel like a meat locker. But turning up the thermostat isn’t the answer. Instead, fix leaks in the fall before the cold weather arrives. Leaks should not be very hard to find. On the first breezy autumn afternoon, walk around the house in search of any drafty areas. These drafts will be noticeable and often occur around doors and window frames, electrical outlets and even recessed lighting. Homeowners have a host of options at their disposal to plug leaks, be it door sweeps that block air from entering under exterior doors to caulk applied around leaky windows. When using caulk outdoors, be sure to use a weather-resistant caulk or, if sealing brick, use masonry sealer. • Add insulation upstairs. Homeowners who have an attic in their homes might want to consider adding some insulation up there. Experts recommend a minimum of 12 inches of insulation in the attic. That might prove costly, but a poorly insulated attic is akin to opening the front door and letting the heat out. It might be best for less-thanhandy homeowners to hire a professional to insulate the attic. But do-it-yourselfers might find it good to know that if the ceiling joists, which are often 11 inches or less, are visible, then the attic

More information is available on the 73’s website at www.kemptville73s.com Puck drop is at 2:00 p.m. and the Hawkesbury Hawks will provide the opposition. Support the 73’s and you will also be supporting women’s specialized health care in our community. “Our “hopes” for our game are threefold - bring the community together to raise awareness to the matter of breast cancer and its impact on everyone; raise moneys for the KDH’s MamCam campaign; and lastly, educate our players on the positive role they can play in a community in raising awareness and funds through the sale of tickets,” said team owner Paul Brenton.

goal of the night for the 73’s was Dan Lacroix. It was his second of the year. Billy Ulrick and Hiio Herne got the assists. For his play Lacroix was also named the game’s third star. Karsten Pankhurst received the nod as the starting goaltender and faced thirty two shots. This Sunday, Oct. 9, the 73’s want to “Pink the Rink”. The 73’s are planning this “Mother’s Day” game in October for breast cancer awareness and raise some funds for Kemptville Hospital’s mammography unit. Special “pink” tickets can be purchased in advance. The advance adult ticket price has been dropped from $12 to $10 and one half of the ticket price will be delivered to the mammography unit at the Kemptville Hospital.

On Friday night, Sept. 30, the Cumberland Grads paid a visit to the North Grenville Municipal Centre. In a fast paced first period, Kemptville dominated the play for most of the frame. The 73’s Ben Hutton drew first blood on the power play with his second goal of the season. The marker was set up by Mason Nowak and Dylan Burdick. Kemptville’s second goal was scored by Josh Pitt with assists from Steve Genier and Hutton. The goal was Pitt’s seventh of the year. Cumberland got one back in the second. With Kemptville leading 2-1 going into the third, the chippy play that was featured in the second got even worse. By the

time the period was five minutes old, the behaviour of both teams had gotten out of hand. The officials began calling penalties more harshly. Kemptville bore the brunt of the calls and received a couple of major penalties, perhaps unjustly. The Grads took advantage of this and scored three times to earn a 4-2 victory. The most offensive incident of the evening was an obscenity filled tirade of great length unleashed by one of the Cumberland coaches aimed solely at an eighteen year old player from Kemptville. The vocal barrage continued even after the coach was admonished by the referee to desist. Aside from this, the 73’s Jesse Ferras and Ryan Mulder played a great game and were named game stars.

We have more impact against more cancers in more communities than any other cancer charity in Canada, yet there is still so much more we need to do. Cancer threatens us all.

Hulbert Edward In loving memory of a dear brother who passed away October 1, 2007. The moment that you died, our hearts split in two. The one side filled with memories, the other side died with you.

But missing you is a heartache that never goes away. I hold you tight within my heart and there you will remain Life has gone on without you, but it’s not the same.

Members of the Osgoode Carleton Snowmobile Club were revving high last week after cleaning up at the provincial snowmobile awards gala. On September 17, the Ottawa South organization was named club of the year and its president George Darouze was crowned volunteer of the year by the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs at its annual gathering in Markham. Darouze said he and his executive team were floored by the news. “It was a kind of a shock and it was very big step for the club,” he said, noting his volunteer award was hardly expected either. “Obviously (the OFSC) is a volunteer organization, and there are many thousands of members. It was a privilege and an honour, and I didn’t expect it.” Darouze has been president of the Osgoode Carleton club since 2009, and has been involved in the organization for eight years since his first season as a snowmobiler. For Darouze, his relationship with snowmobiling was love at first sight.

Photo submitted -George Darouze

Osgoode snowmobilers named club of the year, president crowned top volunteer On a Sunday drive back to Ottawa, he and a friend hit a nasty snowstorm. Stopping at the friend’s empty home in Brockville, they had to take his snowmobile to find food. “We jumped on the snowmobile, I think he dressed me up in his daughter’s equipment, and it was the most beautiful evening in my life. I’ll never forget that night,” he said. The next day, a Monday, the roads were still impassable so the pair spent the day snowmobiling to Gananoque for dinner. By Wednesday Darouze was back in Ottawa and had purchased a snowmobile and all of his equipment. By Friday, he

was on the trails. “Either you love something or you hate it,” he laughed. Since then Darouze and his dedicated team at the Osgoode Carleton Snowmobile Club have made inroads into the community, working with community groups, local councillors and businesses to support a safe network of snowmobile trails for residents. They were in the spotlight late 2010 and early 2011 during the City of Ottawa’s series of tense and controversial consultations to decide if snowmobiles should be allowed on a multi-use pathway through the village of Osgoode. OFSC spokesperson

Craig Nicholson said its clear the Osgoode Carleton club has something special, and not just because they achieved a very rare feat by taking home both top awards from this year’s gala. “They have a reputation through the OFSC, people have heard of Osgoode Carleton and they know they’re doing good things. Even if they don’t know the club or anyone in it, there’s a positive buzz about them,” Nicholson said, noting that the club thinks outside the box when it comes to community involvement. Last year’s ‘KISSmas’ performance in the Osgoode Christ-

mas parade, where they dressed up as members of the glam rock band as part of their float, sums up their creativity and accessibility, he added. “A successful club is based on getting people involved, having fun and getting the job done. The Osgoode club has focused on having fun and getting people involved. Getting the job done falls naturally out of that, and now they also have many more people to do the job,” he said. Nicholson said the club is “plugged in” with the community, through their more than 30 social events throughout the entire year and the use of social media to get the word out. He credits Darouze with much of the club’s recent success. “He’s the spark plug that just makes the whole club gel. He’s one of those guys that is passionate and outgoing and basically is willing to do anything to make it work,” Nicholson said. Darouze, however, said its teamwork that makes the club tick. “It’s not just me, I have a great volunteer base, I have great membership and a great executive behind me. It was never a personal effort, it was a group effort and all the success I have its all from my team and the local businesses,” he said.
