North Grenville grad wins Nuclear Olympiad SPORTS HEROES It was a feast of memories for the inductees recently named to the North Grenville Sports Hall of Fame.


James Harrington might not be a full-fledged nuclear physicist, but he sure sounds like one. The 23-year-old health and radiation sciences Masters student speaks eloquently about nuclear power as an energy source in Canada and the world. Harrington, a Winchester native who called Kemptville home before beginning his studies at Hamilton’s McMaster University, was part of the winning team at the inaugural International Nuclear Energy Olympiad, held in Seoul, South Korea, from Sept. 26 to 30.

The Olympiad featured teams of university students from Canada, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Mongolia, Romania, Russia, Turkey and the U.S. that researched and presented a plan to increase public acceptance of nuclear energy in their home countries. There are “extreme varying degrees” of acceptance for nuclear power in Canada, from 55 per cent in Ontario to 17 per cent in Quebec, Harrington said. Canada’s half century of experience with nuclear energy makes the public well aware of the issues. But, he admits, that higher awareness also makes nuclear a tougher sell.

To help us catch up, we are currently looking to hire a warehouse assistant for 30 hours per week for a minimum of 16 weeks; to retrieve, sort, price and stock the items we receive. Applicants must be able to lift 40 lbs. and the application deadline is Nov. 7. It’s business as usual for the food bank and all other areas of operations, but please excuse our mess as we will be renovating for the next month as we make improvements to our warehouse and repairs from the fire we had in January. Thank you for your support and patience. The House of Lazarus Linking Hands Project is sponsoring a Community Forum on Nov. 18 from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in Dundas County in partnership with our municipal councils, local churches, social service agencies, businesses, and community groups to develop communitybased sustainable strategies to make our communities more resilient in the face of increasing rural poverty. Working groups created at the forum will begin some community projects to address the specific rural issues and gaps in service we are facing in Dundas County. Some areas of concern include economic and entrepreneurial development and training; transportation and access to jobs and services; access to nutritious and local food; geared-to-income housing for families; emergency shelter; literacy, including financial and digital; and community awareness of and access to services. The Dundas Linking Hands Project is an outreach ministry initiated by the House of Lazarus and supported by local congregations in North and South Dundas. The forum will also be of interest to other congregations in the Presbytery who are looking for ways to address rural poverty in their communities or enhance their outreach ministry. The forum takes place at Christian Reformed Church at 12436 County Road 18 in Williamsburg. The cost is $25, and registration opens at 8:30. Register by Nov. 11 at the House of Lazarus, the Township of North Dundas in Winchester, or the Township of South Dundas in Morrisburg.

“What they need most is a friend and an advocate who can get them help.”

REGULAR COUNCIL Monday, Novem ber 14 th at 6:30 pm in Cham bers, North Grenville Municipal Centre.


In a recent rant on his CBC television program The Rick Mercer Report, Canadian comedian and satirist Rick Mercer drew national attention to the problem of depression and youth suicide. Three hundred Canadian youth take their life each year, said Mercer, in an impassioned speech sparked by the suicide of 15-yearold Jamie Hubley, an openly gay Kanata high school student who committed suicide last month as a result of relentless bullying from classmates. Closer to home, Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) director of education David K. Thomas urged the 46 members of the board’s Student Senate to help students struggling with depression and suicidal thoughts. At a Senate meeting at the North Grenville Municipal Centre on Oct. 21, Thomas asked student leaders to reach out to those who appear disengaged and might be affected by mental illness, and to help them get the help they need.

can be tragic if the victim feels there is no one to turn to. If students believe a classmate is thinking about suicide, they should tell a principal, teacher, or any attentive adult as soon as they can. And if the adults they approach don’t take them seriously, Thomas said to call him directly. “I will do my very best to ensure that a student gets the help that they need,” he promised. Thomas acknowledged that friends often ask their confidantes to keep their problems to themselves, but, he stressed, “Life trumps confidentiality.” Youth in crisis need help, and staying silent might mean students don’t get the attention they require until it’s too late. “A real friend will say, ‘I will follow all your rules but I will not follow that one,’” Thomas said. Members of the Student Senate – a group of high school student council members that advises the board from the student perspective – pledged to bring discussions of suicide and bullying back to their schools.

Kemptville Advance - November 03 2011


Sports shape our community No one really understand what kind of glue holds a community together. Shared memories are one place to start, and the North Grenville Sports Hall of Fame awards held last week was a sure sign that in this community, sports brings many like-minded people together. In rural communities it was not uncommon for entire families to follow in the footsteps of older brothers and sisters when they went off to play hockey, baseball or golf. Each family member generated their own memories. Teamwork, endurance, character and determination all played a role in shaping the young Kemptville men and women of the 1960s, who 50 years later are recognized for all they accomplished way back when. MPP Steve Clark used a Mohammad Ali quote to explain how precious were the accomplishments of all of the different athletes gathered at the awards ceremony. “Champions aren’t made in gyms,” he said. “Champions are made from something they have deep inside them – a desire, a dream, and a vision. They have to have the skill, and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.” That quote clearly describes a common and

driving attitude held by the sporting community. While important, winning took second place to having fun. Seeing the game through to the end was a matter of pride. Sharing the struggle to do your best on the field with your teammates was the secret. The glue that cements the North Grenville community together is just that. A sense of pride and will and determination to do what needs to be done even when you are 16-yearsold and playing in your very first fastball tournament. Sports, like so many other social activities, has a special flavour to it that is remembered forever. Newcomers to North Grenville may not realize at first how much work has been done by so many people to establish a community sports environment. When the South Gower soccer fields were opened several years ago, a promise made to former South Gower residents was kept. The importance of North Grenville children having several top quality fields to play on was not lost on the council of the day in North Grenville or the South Gower council of more than a decade ago. They were investing in memories and, ultimately, the future of their community.


Just what the world needs – more toys


hen someone gives us a new toy, it’s only natural to thank him. When someone gives millions of people new toys, it’s only natural that the world thanks him. And that’s why you’re still reading, weeks after his death, tributes to the late Steve Jobs. And who can say they’re not deserved? Although he didn’t accomplish it single-handedly, Jobs made computing accessible to the average person. Before the MacIntosh computer, you had to be a bit of a geek to function easily in the computer world. The Mac made that world more friendly, which is an important contribution, given the fact that the computer world is now the world. Whether we like it or not. Many people don’t, but they’re stuck with it and having easy-to-use computers makes their lives more bearable. However, it’s not the several generations of Apple desktops and laptops that earned Steve Jobs the gratitude of millions. Those weren’t the toys he gave us. No, the inspiration for all those heartfelt tributes was the creation of the iPod and the iPhone. Those two small devices were, predictably, snapped up by early adopters and, less predictably, by just about everyone


else. You can measure how significant that was by thinking back to the year before the invention of the iPod and what you were doing then. That was the year 2000. Your music was probably on CDs. If you wanted to listen to music while you went for your morning run, you had to carry a bulky portable disc player or, if you were a bit behind, laboriously transfer those discs to tape cassettes to be played on your Walkman. Or, if you were one of those perhaps fortunate people untouched by technology, you listened to your CDs (or phonograph records) at home and listened to the birds when you went outside. If someone had told you, in the year 2000, that you would, within the year, be loading your CDs into the computer and then transferring songs onto a device

the size of a deck of playing cards, you wouldn’t have believed it. Now millions do it. What a toy! It’s not all good. The advent of the iPod and digitized music generally has caused a crisis in the music industry and made it more difficult for many musicians to earn a living. Fixated on their shiny toys, most people don’t seem to notice. The impact of the iPhone is more visible. You see it in people on the street who never look up, people in restaurants who never speak to their partners, people who seemingly talk to themselves in shopping centres. You hear it in electronic noises that echo in theatres. The upside is that people are connected at all times. They need never be out of touch. They can talk to their friends from a forest. They can settle every argument by Googling the answer from the tavern. The office can contact them at the church. From anywhere, they can get directions to the nearest phone store, in case there’s something newer. The benefit to humanity is difficult to measure, but no one who has the toy is going to give it up, or stop looking for the next one. When you think about it, both these

devices, the iPod and the iPhone, are things the world could quite easily get along without. That could be said of most toys. But what can’t be said about most toys is that the world economy now seems to consist of more and more companies trying to invent and market similar gadgets. This, in a world that should really be spending its resources bringing fresh water to billions who need it, eradicating diseases such as malaria and creating affordable housing in every country of the world. The world has many pressing needs and builds better phones. Toys are us. That’s probably not what Steve had in mind.

A Sentimental Send Off Dear Editor: Sept. 17, 2011 marked the last celebration for North Grenville District High School Alumni at the Prescott Street location. It was bittersweet, as staff and students past and present reminisced about the good times had over the last 75 years in the hallowed halls of NGDHS. Over 1,000 people attended the afternoon tours and evening party event. The gymnasium, classrooms, and halls were filled to capacity with alumni representing all of the decades. It was a common theme with the noisy crowd that the new school will

be a blessing for future staff and students, but it was difficult for those present to say a final goodbye to this historic building. Those in attendance agreed that the community as we know it was built on the education and memories made in this school. Proceeds from this event will be used to continue the funding for the commencement bursary and also help fund an alumni project for the new school bridging the old with the new. The Reunion Committee invites everyone to part two of the celebration on Sept. 15, 2012 in the new school on Concession Rd. We look forward to being a part of

the unveiling of the special project and celebrate the new locale. As a final note, the committee does have a limited number of memorabilia that includes golf shirts, drink holders, and Eco bags. All items would make great Christmas presents. For further details contact the school at 613-258-3481 (ext. 3532) or visit the Reunion website. Thanks to all those who attended this farewell.

Cheryl J. Brown centre celebrates anniversary JOSEPH MORIN

Anniversaries are always special moments. Kemptville can boast of several organizations that have contributed more than their share to the community. The Cheryl J. Brown Centre (Kemptvlle and district Home support services) has been a part of the Kemptville landscape for the last 30 years. Beginning with an informal meeting at the Pines, an apartment complex in Kemptville in 1981, the centre’s organizers have never looked back. In 1982 the fledgling centre received their first bit of funding from the Ministry of Social Services. In 1984 the Kemptville and District Home Support Inc., Community Support Services was incorporated. Their first location was a three room home on George Street in Kemptville. In 1994, after several location changes, the centre established itself in Raina’s Mall. Finally in 2009 the centre moved to a bigger area at the mall, where they remain today. On Thursday, Oct. 27 the centre, along with its volunteers and members, celebrated its 30th anniversary with a special lunch and a visit from MPP Steve Clark. Their original mandate was to provide transportation for seniors who needed help getting to and from their

doctors appointments and to make sure that the meals on wheels program that was being dropped by the Kemptville District hospital remained in place. “When it first started we never thought it would turn out like this,” said Helen Philips, the president of the centre. The Cheryl J. Brown Centre’s mandate expanded over the years to include supporting seniors and physically disabled adults who were living on their own. Keeping up an active lifestyle and an active role in the community was something the centre offered to all. Keeping the centre operating as best as it could was not easy but volunteers were determined. “We never thought of giving up,” said executive director Cheryl Brown. The centre now offers more than 12 services and programs, from income tax assistance to meals on wheels. While the programs are used by more than 700 clients, giving these same people the opportunity to enjoy each other’s company and offering them a welcome place to go is equally important. “I think the most important thing is the socialization,” said Phillips, adding that the social programs and activities are growing. MPP Steve Clark presented Cheryl

Brown with a special certificate of appreciation for all of the work she has done for the centre. “This program is a real important part of senior life in North Grenville,” he said, thanking the volunteers for their work at the centre. “We would not be standing here if we did not have so many volunteers.” Chad Gorki is an accountability specialist from the Champlain LHIN, which funds the senior centre. “The centre improves the quality of life for seniors,” he said, adding that the volunteers were involved and dedicated. Brown and her supporters have never wavered in their determination to see the centre grow and provide seniors with the help and respect they need. The main portion of funding for the Cheryl J. Brown Centre comes from the Champlain LHIN. Then Kemptville and District Home support Inc. is still responsible for a large portion of the budget. The centre receives funding from the Leeds and Grenville United Way, Kemptville Legion branch 212, service clubs, private donations, fundraising and user fees where applicable. For more information about the centre and how it can help you or to ask about becoming a volunteer please call 613-258-3203. You can visit them on the web at .

Living with a serious disability is not easy, and can be life-changing. Coping with a mental illness can be next to impossible without community support and professional help.

The Canadian Service Dog Foundation (CSDF) is a nonprofit organization that provides their own brand of unique help to those struggling with a number of mental traumas that require the special services CSDF provides. The foundation’s operators want to bring their service to the North Grenville area and are looking for a place to settle in Kemptville. Peter and Melanie Woolley operate the CSDF out of Stalworth Kennels of Apple Hill near Cornwall. They train dogs to perform a number of tasks, including service dogs that are able to help people with psychological trauma. The CSDF currently provides dogs for the police and military as well as search and rescue organizations. Now they want to offer dogs that can help with trau-

Melanie explained that if a particular patient has night terrors, for example, as the result of a documented traumatizing event, a service dog can be trained to wake them up at the first signs of the chemical changes that herald an attack. The dog could also be trained to turn on a light, make a noise or do something to warn the person that they are about to have some kind of attack. Another example would be if a person has a difficult time talking or being with other people. A service dog could be trained to quietly stand between the patient and a stranger, allowing the patient to feel comfortable enough to have a conversation. Each service dog is trained in several basic skills. Depending on what kind of work the dog will be doing more skills can be added to the dog’s skill set. “The dog will help people become grounded when they cannot do that for themselves,” Melanie said. “A service dog can also be trained to help someone with mobility issues.“ Every case is different and Melanie works with the client’s health care team and physician. It takes from 12 to 26 months to teach the dog the skills related to one particular person. Melanie and Peter Woolley have found the demand for service dogs is on the increase. Moving to Kemptville allows the couple to be more accessible to those who need their help.

ma. “Our primary focus is on mental illness,” explained Melanie, noting that the training process usually begins with a referral from a medical professional. “It is usually someone who is familiar with the use service dogs,” added Peter. “It is just now being regarded as useful,” he said. ”Service dogs can provide an increased level of independence, confidence, mobility and emotional support for psychological conditions such as post-traumatic stress syndrome, anxiety and depression,” explained Melanie, who uses a service dog. The symptoms of post-traumatic stress syndrome can take years to present itself. Often victim of the condition have to come to terms with changing their lifestyle to accommodate their illness. Once a doctor has prescribed the use of a service dog for a patient, Melanie and CSDF get to work custom training a dog to suit the particular needs of the patient. Melanie has seen the positive effects of a service dog first hand. “We have had people who have not gone out of their homes for two years,” she said. But with the help of a specially trained service dog those same people who were able to integrate with the world outside. A properly trained service dog is taught to recognize the particular signs of oncoming stress and, with the help of the dog, short circuit the anxiety process.

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

Melanie Woolley says she has seen firsthand the positive impact a service dog, like Deva, can have on an individual. Woolley’s non-profit organization is looking to call Kemptville home so they can better meet the needs of area patients. Service dogs are given the same legal status as guide dogs or dogs for people with hearing issues.

Hospice Harvest Moon Extravaganza a success JOSEPH MORIN

The Beth Donovan Hospice hosted another exciting and fun-filled Harvest Moon Extravaganza last weekend. It was the 12th annual celebration of the fall season by the Hospice and a successful fundraiser as well. The Oct. 15 extravaganza, held at the North Grenville Municipal Centre, raised just under $24,000. The funds will be directed back to the hospice to be used for a variety of programs and operational needs. The evening included a great roast beef dinner courtesy of the Knights of Columbus plus silent and live auctions, with a special cake auction for those with a sweet tooth. The master of ceremonies for the evening was Wayne Cavanagh. The live auction was handled by Al Brown, and the ever popular cake auction was created by Hunter McCaig. Five donated cakes were up for grabs. It was a busy evening for volunteers who organized dinner and looked after more than 22 tables. “It was well attended,” said Marlene

Quinton, the community outreach officer for the Hospice. “There were people from as far away as Ottawa and Cornwall. Everyone had fun. There was good competition on the auction items.” The presenting sponsor for the evening was B. Baird Water Conditioning and family. Coming quickly on the heels of the Harvest Moon Extravaganza is the Hospice’s Butterflies of the Heart campaign. “Christmas is just around the corner and it is a time to reflect, rejoice and remember,” Quinton said in a statement. The Butterflies of the Heart campaign is an opportunity for those looking for a special way to remember a loved one to purchase a handcrafted memorial butterfly ornament. The name of the loved one is written on the ornament, which is then displayed for the entire holiday season on a Christmas tree at the Hospice office at 6 Asa St. in Kemptville. Volunteers will be selling the butterflies at the Independent Grocer, Food Basics, and Walmart stores in Kemptville right up until Christmas.

South Nation Conservation offers agri-environmental outreach sponsorship Guest speakers, workshops, tours, demonstration projects… if they’re agri-environmental in nature, they may be eligible for funding under a new South Nation Conservation sponsorship program through Dec. 31. Managed by SNC’s Clean Water Committee (CWC), each successful application could be granted up to $500. Agricultural organizations within the South Nation watershed are invited to apply no later than Dec. 1. SNC already operates a separate program that provides up to $500 per application to festivals and other events which bring attention to the many attributes of the South Nation River and its tributaries. “The CWC sponsorship is strictly for environmental outreach and education,” said committee chairman Denis Perrault. “It’s a companion initiative to our Clean Water Program (CWP) which every year partners with property owners to reduce pollu-

tion in the watershed.” This season, 32 applications were reviewed under the CWP, with $40,000 allocated on a 50-50 basis to 14 projects which included septic system replacements, livestock watercourse fencing, manure and milkhouse wastewater storages, fuel storages, and well decommissioning. The largest amount approved was $8,000 in the Spencerville area for a subsurface constructed wetland for milkhouse wastewater treatment. All CWP applications are peer reviewed and peer inspected. As with the sponsorship program, funded projects must provide credit to SNC for its participation, display the SNC banner and information, and provide the conservation authority a summary of the project outcome. For more information about this opportunity, contact SNC sponsorship coordinator Ronda Boutz at 1-877-984-2948, ext. 251 or email .

New battery drop-off points free for residents STAFF Thanks to a partnership with Raw Materials Company (RMC), North Grenville residents will soon be able to drop off small household batteries – those used in flashlights, cell phones, and handheld electronic devices, as opposed to car batteries – in plastic pails set up at the Municipal Centre, the arena lobby, the fire hall, the libraries, and the waste transfer station.

The Port Colborne-based company will collect the full pails and replace them with empties, all at no cost to residents or the municipality. RMC receives stewardship money from the provincial Ministry of Environment to carry out environmentally friendly projects such as these, explained public works director Karen Dunlop, which means this program will let North Grenville divert more waste from the landfill at no additional expense.

High school physics class hooked future nuclear scientist From the front In non-nuclear countries like Mongolia, where most citizens don’t have stable electricity, nuclear energy is readily accepted because it represents a way to turn on the lights. Harrington and teammate Alex Wolf argued that the Canadian nuclear industry needs to focus on convincing specific segments of the population of the benefits of nuclear technology, which they said include grid stability and waste reduction. But facts and figures only go so far to change deep-rooted attitudes,

Harrington said. He compared people’s concerns about radiation to the fear of flying. Even though one might understand that airplanes are safer than automobiles, one’s heart rate inevitably races when the plane hits turbulence. “It’s that emotional response to certain things that’s the difference between attitudes and opinions. I can always change someone’s opinion by giving them facts and knowledge and educating them, but it’s whether or not you can change their attitude,” Harrington said.

He encourages people to do their research about nuclear power. “Once people are educated about energy policy issues, they seem to trend naturally toward nuclear power. They seem to innately understand that the cost benefit analysis of nuclear outweighs a lot of other options,” he said. The health effects of nuclear power “aren’t as bad as people expect,” Harrington continued, though he called the debate “polarizing” – evidenced by rival studies that peg the death toll from the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster to anywhere from a few thousand to almost one million. But, he points out, despite the media frenzy after the earthquake and meltdowns at the nuclear plant in Fukushima in March, no one has died directly from radiation in Japan. The Canadians had a leg up heading into the Olympiad because they had previously worked for the Canadian Nuclear Association, a lobby group that promotes nuclear energy, and thus were already familiar with the state of nuclear acceptance in Canada. Harrington admits a bias, but said that “99 per cent” of scientists support his view that nuclear is a safe, clean energy source. The science student had no reservations about working for a lobbyist, since, he said, “Nothing that the Canadian Nuclear Association publishes is false.” He bemoans that the general public is “caught in the

Technological advances and the use of fuels other than uranium make the nuclear process safer, as does an ongoing effort to reuse nuclear waste – “spent fuel,” Harrington calls it – by storing it on site at reactors or under secure areas like the Canadian Shield, and eventually feeding it back into the reactor as fuel, where it would break down into an

inert material such as lead. This innovation would nearly eliminate waste and reduce fuel demand since the shelf life of uranium would be much longer, making the process less costly. The Olympiad was organized by the World Nuclear University (WNU) and hosted by the Korean Nuclear Energy Promotion Agency (Konepa), which paid for participants to attend. Harrington was pleased to win, but said the value of the competition was in hearing other perspectives on nuclear acceptance, including a Japanese team detail-

ing their country’s efforts after Fukushima. It was Don Messenger’s physics class at NGDHS that first sparked Harrington’s curiosity about science. “He specifically took an interest in me, to the point that he was passing on magazine subscriptions to Popular Science and Nature simply because he recognized I had an affinity toward physics, and an enthusiasm,” said Harrington. Years later, he is still captivated by the impossibly small particles that have an incalculably large impact on the world.

Keep your car’s battery ready to defeat winter’s frigid temperatures Cold weather can play havoc with a vehicle’s battery, threatening starting and the ability to handle winter’s increased electrical loads. “A conventional 12-volt battery maintains about 40 percent of its capacity at 0 degrees F, so it’s very important to make sure the vehicle’s battery is up to the task when the weather turns really cold. Most engines won’t start when cranking voltage drops too far below 12 volts, and a battery loses some of its available voltage and cold cranking amps (CCA) as it ages. So it’s a good idea to take precautions as the chill envelopes us,” said Andreas Tobler, Product Manager, Energy Systems for Bosch ( Tobler suggested these precautions to avoid cold weather battery problems: • Check all battery and starter connections. Make sure they are tight and cables are top quality and in good condition. • Make sure the alternator is operating at full capacity to keep the engine running and operate lights, windshield wipers and heater fan while keeping the battery charged. Replace it if questionable. • Have the battery tested to make sure it has sufficient capacity and is new enough to handle frigid temperature starting, heavy electrical demand. Install a fresh battery if needed. • If the battery charge is low, have it charged or use a modern portable battery charger to keep it in top form.

17 Kemptville Advance November 03 2011

Simple ways to reduce home heating costs ances might not work as efficiently as they once did, requiring more energy and fuel to get the job done; causing a spike in utility costs along the way. However, today’s Energy Star appliances are required to have a high performance with up to 15 percent greater energy efficiency than their predecessors, significantly reducing your home energy costs. • Consider renewable energy heating appliances. Today’s solar and biomass/wood heating appliances are a far cry from those available as recently as three years ago. These products may offer automated operation with wood pellets or other convenient features like self-cleaning.

The return of winter weather marks the return of many things, including winter coats, mornings spent shoveling snow and, for many homeowners, higher utility bills. Home heating costs have a long history of being the enemy of homeowners who want to keep their homes warm in the winter. Over the course of a typical winter, homeowners can expect to spend as much as $2,000 to keep their families warm, and unfortunately, there’s no guarantee those costs won’t increase this winter. Fortunately, there are several ways homeowners can easily reduce home heating costs no matter how harsh the weather becomes this winter. • Address those leaks before it’s too late. Fall is an ideal time to get around to all those pesky home improvements you didn’t have a chance to get to this summer. If not addressed, leaky windows and doorways are destined to produce high home heating bills. Cold air that enters the home through such leaks, creates drafts that is costly as the homeowner turns up the thermostat to get rid of the chill. Before winter arrives, seal any existing drafts around windows and doors, using caulk or weather-proof tape. • Replace old appliances. Older appli-

Bring It All In Before the colder weather arrives, homeowners must move all those remnants from the summer into the house or garage. Lawn and garden equipment, patio furniture and, of course, the grill can’t withstand harsh winter weather. Before storing such items for the winter, be sure to clean them thoroughly. A Heavy-Duty Degreaser is ideal for removing the grease and dirt that typically builds up on patio furniture and lawn and garden equipment over the course of summer. Powerful and biodegradable degreasers use water-soluble grease cutting agents to create a fast acting and environ-

As the seasons change once again, homeowners across the country are preparing their homes for the days that lie ahead.

Kemptville Advance - November 03 2011




With four games played last week, the current losing streak for the 73’s is up to 14 games. But it was sure to be a tough week with a heavy schedule of games and seven starters out of the line up due to injuries. The week opened in Kanata against the Stallions on Oct. 25. The teams each scored twice in the first period with Josh Pitt getting both markers for the 73’s. Picking up the assists were Sam McLaughlin, Mason Nowak Alex Bouchey and Steve Genier. In the second period, Kanata scored four more goals while Kemptville could only score three, so the Stallions took a 6-5 lead into the second intermission. Ben Hutton, from Genier, got his fourth of the year while McLaughlin got his first

left on the clock. Ottawa earned themselves a 3-1 win. The performance of 73’s goaltender Ryan Mulder earned him a nod as third star of the game. Coming into the weekend, the future was not looking bright for Kemptville. With the team decimated by injuries, they now had to face the Carleton Place Canadians in a home and home series. The Canadians are virtually tied with the Cornwall Colts for first place in the Robinson division as they are just two points behind with a game in hand. The action was fast and furious in the first period during the Friday, Oct. 28 game in North Grenville. The Canadians took a 2-1 lead at the end of the first frame. Scoring the73’s goal was Jesse Lussier assisted by Keegan Rowe and Alex Bouchey. Then in the second, Carleton Place took over the game completely, winning

all the battles. They scored four times in the second and then added two more in the third as they cruised to an 8-1 thumping of the 73’s. Even with both goaltenders playing, Kemptville couldn’t slow them down. Wilkins and Mulder faced a 46 shot barrage. Jesse Lussier was named third star for his solid play. Hoping for a better result on Saturday, Oct. 29, Kemptville travelled to Carleton Place. The Canadians jumped out to a three goal lead before the 73’s got one of their own. Josh Pitt scored at the 15:19 mark of the first on the power play with the setup coming from Ross Scherma and Mason Nowak. Carleton Place added four more goals in the second while Kemptville could only add one.

In the third, Kanata scored once more to hold a two goal lead and then added an empty net goal with one second on the clock to finish the game with an 8-5 victory. Josh Pitt earned the second star of the game. Both goalies for both teams saw action in this game. Game two of the week followed the next night, Oct. 26 at the Jim Durrell Complex when the 73’s took on the Junior Senators. Kemptville opened the scoring in the first with Ross Scherma’s second goal of the year. John Mclean and Jeremy Nichols were awarded the assists. In the second period, Ottawa scored twice to take a 2-1 lead into the third. For the second straight night, the opposition scored an empty net goal with one second

Brunton has a passion for developing elite junior golfers, and has been Canada’s National Coach since the Royal Canadian Golf Association established its Player Development Program in 1999. His teams won the 2001 Four Nations Cup Championship, the 2003 Americas Cup, and have competed for Canada around the globe. Henry also coached the Canadian National Men’s Team to a silver medal at the 2006 World Amateur Championship and the Canadian Junior team to a bronze medal finish at the 2010 World Juniors. “This is really a celebration of Kemptville,” said Brunton. “I am lucky to be able to follow my passion. I am thrilled by it. I have been lucky. This is really special to receive it at home.” Using words as well as his swing he has become a respected author and educator.

North Grenville residents celebrated their community sport builders on Thursday, Oct. 27 by adding names to the Sports Hall of Fame. Inducted into the North Grenville Sports Hall of Fame were: Adrian Richardson (athlete kayak), Lois Beckett (builder - snowmobiling), Henry Brunton (Builder - golf), Jack Higgins (Builder -fastball) and the 1966 Kemptville Midget Fastball Team. ADRIAN RICHARDSON Adrian Richardson started sprint kayaking when he was 14 years old. “I had a life-changing experience when I was in Grade 8,” Richardson said. “My parents insisted that I take up some kind of sport to keep me out of trouble.” By 1996 he earned a spot on the Canadian Canoe/Kayak Team and competed at his first international event in Velence, Hungary. He later teamed up with Nathan Luce at the World Championships where he placed 13th. In 1998 Richardson set the fastest Canadian record for the 500-m sprint at the Canadian National Team Trials. That summer he also came in fourth in the 1000-m semi-finals at the World Championships in Szeged, Hungary. In 1999 he earned a bronze medal at the Pan American Games. He won two gold medals at the 2001 World Canoe/ Kayak Cup in Gainsville, Georgia, and then ended his competitive career. He soon became a mentor, taking on the role of head coach at the Rideau Canoe Club.

JOHN PATRICK HIGGINS J. Morin photo/Advance Staff

Jack Higgins, pictured with his wife Mary, was recently named to the North Grenville Sports Hall of Fame. LOIS MCINTYRE BECKETT Lois McIntyre Beckett died in 1987, leaving behind a legacy of snowmobile safety awareness. “We were on the same board together of the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs,” remembers Winston Goodman, a longtime friend of Beckett. “Lois was one of the eight to nine people who put the driver education program together in the early 1970s.” When snowmobiling was a young sport in the area, safety was an issue. Accidents were on the rise across the province. Eventually the Ontario government and the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) partnered to create a driver training program. Beckett was the community leader

who took charge of the young safety program. To this day, more than 5,000 students from Ontario graduate each year from the program, earning a Ministry of Transportation Snowmobile Driver’s License. After her death in 1987, Beckett received recognition from the province when the prestigious OFSC “Driver Trainer of the Year” award was established in her name. The Lois Beckett trophy continues to be awarded each year at the OFSC Annual General Meeting. HENRY BRUNTON Inductee Henry Brunton is one of the world’s leading golf coaches and educators. A member of the Canadian Professional Golfers’ Association,

John Patrick “Jack” Higgins hails from Oxford Mills. He began playing baseball with the Kemptville Senior Mens’ League in 1937. His talent led him to the St. Lawrence Senior Men’s Team and the Hallville/Dundas Senior Men’s team – the best team in Eastern Ontario for four consecutive years. He continued to play in surrounding leagues until 1954. Mary, John’s wife, remembers those days of endless baseball games and coaching. “It was very interesting years for me as Jack’s wife,” she said. “He loved the game and I would go with him as often as I could.” Known as “Mr. Softball,” Higgins’ is credited with founding and nourishing Kemptville’s major softball tournaments. The tournaments were considered “softball at its best” throughout Ontario. Over its history, the tournament raised over $300,000 for the Kemptville Lions Club. Much of the proceeds were used to help fund Kemptville District Hospital and the development of Riverside Park. Higgins could not stay away from the game, coaching bantam, midget and juvenile softball teams and managing many others. Higgins also served at the provincial level with the Ontario Amateur Softball Association.
