Lift cap on minor hockey ice time: league 73’S IN A RUT The Kemptville 73’s are running up their number of losses. They are due to break out of their losing streak soon.

The Kemptville District Minor Hockey Association wants the municipality to do away with a surcharge on extra ice time at the Municipal Centre Arena. North Grenville council and staff are in the midst of putting together the 2012 budget, and as part of the deliberations, council

invited residents and community groups to make their pitch for projects they believe merit inclusion. The league is the rink’s largest single rental group, KDMHA ice convener Karen Bedard told council at the first of these public consultations during the Nov. 7 Committee of the Whole meeting. Currently, the league is allocated 69 hours per week at the youth rate of $151.42 per

hour. The parks and recreation department found them an extra three hours each week, which is enough time for all practices and games. At the youth rate, the cost would be “certainly manageable,” Bedard said. But the extra time is hit with an “ice cap premium charge” of an additional $88.14 per hour to make the revenue equal to what an adult group would pay. See HOCKEY on page 2

Hockey, baseball, curling leagues seek funding Continued from the front The surcharge works out to $12,000 per year, which Bedard says is unsustainable for a league that takes in between $320,000 and $350,000 annually and already can’t afford to let a family’s fourth child play for free, as happens in other leagues. This is the third time the league has petitioned council to drop the surcharge. Fundraising is already mandatory for parents and teams are already doubled up on the ice for practices because the league has ballooned from

It may be time for players from outside North Grenville to pay a surcharge to use municipality facilities, as is done elsewhere in Canada, Coun. Barb Tobin said. Parks and recreation director Darren Patmore has repeatedly shied away from that option. KDMHA is not the only league looking for funding. More teens playing baseball means South Gower Park’s Diamond 3 needs to be upgraded, said representatives from Kemptville District Little League. This year, 188 teens aged 13 and 14 played baseball, up from 100 last year. The 15 to 16 and 17 to 18 age groups are growing as well.

A renewed push to include beer and wine at convenience stores has an opposition coalition contacting municipal governments in North Grenville, Arnprior and elsewhere. Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), the Ontario Public Health Association, and the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health penned a letter detailing the dangers of alcohol and the rise of consumption in regions with privatized alcohol sales. “Alcohol is not an ordinary commodity and it should not be sold as one,” the letter reads. “The strong links between privatized alcohol sales, increased consumption and increased alcohol-related harms to society are well-documented.” It goes on to say LCBO employees are trained in socially responsible service, including how to spot underage or intoxicated customers. Ontario Convenience Stores president Dave Bryans has nothing against MADD and its partners that oppose the idea, but says studies and statistics prove consumers want the service and store employees are better than LCBO employees at following the rules. “Look, we have a lot of respect for MADD, all of us do. But we have to be careful at fear mongering,” Bryans said. “The fact is MADD isn’t telling the whole story.” He cites an independent study conducted by Statopex Field in May. It conducted an independent mystery shopping study of convenience stores, the LCBO and the Beer Store to determine how well each dealt with age checks of minors attempting to buy age-restricted products like tobacco and alcohol. In this study, when independently tested with underage se-

cret shoppers (age 15-18), convenience stores scored the highest with an 87.3 per cent pass rate, The Beer Store next with 80.7 per cent and LCBO last with 74.6 per cent; meaning one in four mi-

“The strong links between privatized alcohol sales, increased consumption and increased alcohol-related harms to society are welldocumented.” MADD, Ontario Public Health Association, Centre for Addiction and Mental Health nors successfully purchased age-restricted products from LCBO, and one in five from The Beer Store – compared to one in eight for convenience stores. “The LCBO will get a slap on the wrist,” Bryans said. “We’ll see a family business (convenience store) shut down if an employee makes a mistake.” An Angus Reid poll last February shows three in five Ontarians support private retailers selling alcoholic beverages in Ontario.

The coalition says regulations have been shown to be better enforced when the seller is not as financially dependent on maximizing profits. Bryans says the three non-Canadian owners of the Beer Store franchise take profits outside the province. He added that stores selling beer and wine usually see a boost in job creation. More employees in store act as a robbery deterrent, he said, pointing to provinces that allow for the practice. The coalition says Ontario has about 1,000 LCBO and Beer Stores, but if convenience stores are allowed to compete it could mean an additional 7,000 locations to buy booze. Bryans wants people walking to stores and, besides, there are numerous rural gas stations and other outlets in Ontario that already sell beer and wine. They’ve seen sales of incidentals like chips and peanuts increase some 30 to 50 per cent. That helps small business in rural communities, and government gets more revenue through licensing fees, he added. “It’s good for everybody,” he said. “We just have the most archaic, outdated laws in the country. But it’s evolving.” Still, Premier Dalton McGuinty has said the law won’t change anytime soon. Bryans said he is patient. The issue has brewed for 20 years.

Emergency simulation in Limerick Forest prepares municipalities for the real thing J.P. ANTONACCI jp.antonacci@metroland.com

During an emergency, normal routines go out the window. “These things pop up – they’re not predictable, and we at the municipal level have to cope with them,” community emergency management coordinator for Augusta Township Lindsay Penney told a group of officials, staff and first responders from North Grenville, Edwardsburgh-Cardinal and Augusta gathered at the Limerick Forest Interpretive Centre for an emergency management simulation last Thursday, Nov. 3. Penney laid out the scenario: aided by heavy winds, high temperatures and a prolonged August drought, a car fire in North Augusta has blossomed into a massive forest fire that is swiftly spreading through Limerick Forest, threatening trees and homes in all three municipalities. While municipal politicians and staff began to work out who would sit on the Community Control Group, representatives from the various emergency services – fire, police, EMS and

public works – branched off to evaluate the problem from their perspective and determine needs and strategies. Fire chiefs from North Grenville, Edwardsburgh-Cardinal and Augusta – Paul Hutt, Dave Grant and Rob Bowman, respectively – put their heads together to figure out where to set up a command post, draw water for their tankers and treat injured or fatigued firefighters. They considered the hazards posed by downed hydro lines, and the logistics of ensuring backup crews from other departments could handle other calls that come into their stations. The working groups allowed for an interesting behind-thescenes look at how emergency response is coordinated at the highest level. For example, the Ontario Provincial Police would consult with the fire departments before closing roads around the fire and evacuating those in its path. The police would also have the crucial task of locating and removing any hikers, tourists and ATV users in the forest who unknowingly find themselves in harm’s way.

Fire chiefs (left to right) Paul Hutt of North Grenville, Dave Grant of Edwardsburgh-Cardinal and Rob Bowman of Augusta plan a response to a fire in Limerick Forest during an emergency management simulation at the forest last week.

The overall picture that emerged saw the municipalities and first responders take the lead, with support from the counties and experts from Emergency Management Ontario and the Ministry of Natural Resources, which has a forest fire advisor who would be called in to advise the control group. “Any time you can do a simu-

lation or practice a larger event in an emergency management situation, it just helps prepare you for the real thing, whenever it happens,” said Hutt, adding that it was instructive to work out the technicalities of a joint command with his counterparts, and learn their strengths. “It’s like having a toolbox – if I know a fire chief had a certain

skill in a certain area, when you look at these larger incidences, you apply their knowledge and their expertise in those areas. That’s very helpful,” he said. Emergency Management Ontario requires every municipality to run a tabletop training exercise every year, said North Grenville clerk Cahl Pominville, who organized the tri-municipality simulation in a countyowned forest as a way to help municipalities connect with one another and hear from provincial and county emergency management experts. “I think it was a very successful event,” Pominville said. “It was a real opportunity to see who does what, who’s in charge, and who helps who, and getting to know each other in case the real thing happened.” Pominville said he was glad to see the different emergency services groups communicating and supporting one another throughout the exercise. He feels the groundwork has been laid for a coordinated response should the area ever be struck by a serious natural disaster. “And hopefully we’ll never have to use it,” he said.

Santa Claus comes to Kemptville on Saturday, Nov. 19.

Santa Claus parade in Kemptville joe.morin@metroland.com

Kemptville residents are getting ready to welcome Santa Claus. Getting ready for Christmas would not be the same without the annual Santa Claus Parade. On Saturday, Nov. 19 Santa arrives in Kemptville. The rain date is Saturday, Nov. 26. Santa will start out from the Holy Cross school parking lot at 1 p.m. on County Road 18 and go east to Clothier Street, turn right and head up to the University of Guelph Kemptville Campus. The route of the parade is much the same as last year. Clothier Street will close at noon on the day of the parade. Clothier Street west to Somerville Road will close and from Prescott Street all the way past the University of Guelph Kemptville Campus on County Road 44. Thanks to the North Grenville Chamber of Commerce and the Kemptville Kinsmen, children will have the chance to see Santa once again as he drives into town. The theme of this year’s parade is the magic of Christmas.

This year’s parade is expected to be bigger than last year with registrations for floats coming along nicely. The parade is the perfect time to ask the Kemptville community to help out various groups. The Kemptville fire department will be walking the route with their traditional boot drive. There will also be an opportunity to donate to the Kemptville Rotary Club’s food drive. Funds collected during the parade will be divided up between the Salvation Army and the North Grenville Community Service Council. Royal Lepage Gale Real Estate will be accepting donations towards its Mountain of Toys project on its float during the parade. The Kemptville Campus is ready for Santa. Campus staff and the Kemptville Fire Department Ladies’ Auxiliary are turning Purvis Hall into the North Pole so that children can have a visit from Santa. Gerald and Louise Tallman will be the parade marshals while Harry Pratt will provide his colourful descriptions of the floats as the master of ceremonies.

Christmas magic welcome

T

ime passes and eventually we get to where most of us want to be most of the time. Considering the time of year, Christmas and New Years seems to be the perfect time and place to use as a watershed moment. All of the election rhetoric and attendant frustration that all elections -- federal, provincial and municipal -- create is receding into the past. Another Remembrance Day has taken place and North Grenville has demonstrated its commitment to honour those who sacrificed so much so that we could enjoy the great life that we have. This year’s Santa Claus parade has as its theme the magic of Christmas. And magic is what we are all ready for. We have had a year of political debates and economic concerns that have been both terrifying and bewildering. The weather has been unusually warm, which leaves many people wondering when the other shoe is going to drop as winter finally arrives. All of the issues begging for attention have

been for grown-ups to wrestle with, so now is the time to enjoy what children think about in their world, such as Christmas. The world, as seen through the eyes of parents, can often seem to be about money, war and fear. Children still believe in magic so when Santa comes to town the event is very real to them. Christmas separates our year into what was before and what can be after. The season connects on a spiritual level as well as a social one as we think about the birth of another year and the renewel of our belief in new beginnings. It is a great time for everyone and provides a perfect excuse to forget the serious stuff that we think we have to pay so much attention to. The magic of Christmas should not be dismissed. All of us were children at one time and the memories for us all, for the most part, are good ones. For many of us the meaning of Christmas and the joy the occasion brings rivals any weighty political debate. On Nov. 19 Santa Claus comes to Kemptville. Enjoy the magic and have fun along with the children.

November through the eyes of the hunting widow

N

ovember is not just a grey, chilly and blustery preamble to winter. To the wife of a hunter, November is about the absentee husband. Now, this can be a good thing or a bad thing. It’s all in how you look at it. Some hunting husbands look forward to their two weeks of deer hunting all year long. In the months leading up to November, they troll outdoors stores and websites looking for the latest in new gear for watching, photographing and otherwise capturing wild game. They watch hours of hunting shows on Wild TV, learning new tips and techniques for bagging the big one. Then they wait. As the opening day of the hunt approaches, many hunters will kiss their wives and families goodbye as they head out for a weekend, a week or even two weeks in the bush with their comradesin-camouflage (or, in the case of deer season, flame orange). They have packed bullets, beer, bacon and baked beans. It’s been proven—you can live on that for several days. There may or may not be a toothbrush in their travel bag. It isn’t always deemed necessary. And anyone who dares to shave at a hunt camp would not only risk ridicule from his cabin

The Accidental Farmwife Diana Fisher mates but he might also throw the luck of the hunt. The wives of these hunters are known as ‘hunting widows’. Knowing that their husbands are gone for several days, they may take up redecorating the living room, or at least moving furniture around. Some hunting widows will go shopping, with their husband’s VISA card. This might be just something she was planning to do anyway, or it might

be a bit of a dig at the husband who has left her alone with the kids while he goes off to play in the woods with his friends. My hunter doesn’t go far from home to hunt. He may take a day trip to the St. Lawrence for geese, but mostly he stays on our own 200 acres, which he has mapped and laid out with trails cut through the woods and stands in the trees. He rises at 5am, kisses me goodbye, and slips downstairs to put the coffee on for his thermos. Then he goes out to the bush, climbs up onto his tree stand, and watches the sun rise. Now that the leaves are gone, I can often see his orange coat through the trees from my kitchen window, 50 acres away. When the girls were little, he would leave a walkie-talkie beside their beds so they could talk to him when they woke up. I’m glad my hunter doesn’t go too far from home. I kind of like having him around. We don’t get to see each other much during the season, however. He goes from the sunrise hunt to work to the sunset hunt...and then he falls asleep on the couch. A friend of mine has a hubby who takes two weeks off work every year for deer season. He hunts in Quebec, as he owns property there. One year it was unseasonably warm and the deer were

He called his wife after a few days to say that he would be calling off the hunt and coming home. “Oh no you aren’t!” she told him. “You can stay at the cottage until the weekend!” Apparently she had been looking forward to the time on her own, and didn’t want him to come home to wait out his vacation loafing about the house. When he did arrive home, she handed him a list of chores to keep him busy until he returned to work. It was another warm one this year, and I haven’t heard of many lucky hunters returning with buck or doe trophies for their wives. Oh well, at least it keeps them happy, busy and out of trouble.

you think. It’s really about figuring out everything you spend in a month. There are certain costs that are fixed – such as rent, mortgage, or your bus pass – and others that are variable, such as groceries, utilities, coffee, and entertainment. (If you have minimum payments on loans or credit cards, include these as a fixed costs for now.) If you’re having trouble getting started, try paying cash for everything for one month, and save every receipt – for groceries, gas, even a pack of gum. Dump the receipts in a shoebox each evening. This will give you a good idea of your variable costs. Annual or semiannual costs, such as Christmas gifts, property taxes, and gym fees should also be broken down and included in your monthly budget. Keep in mind, it’s against human nature not to spend available money. One way to avoid this is to have your pay directly deposited into a savings account, instead of into your

chequing account. On the first of each month, transfer your budgeted spending dollars (minus your annual or semi-annual costs) into your chequing account. Continue to pay cash for everything. Once your chequing account is empty, you have no more money to spend that month. The first month I ever tried this my available cash ran out one week before the month’s end. It was an eye opener to force myself to live without that cash for a week. Even though I knew there was money in my savings account, I didn’t touch it. Instead, I made some pretty creative meals out of what was left in the cupboards and I stayed away from the mall. Money always seems complicated because it has so much control over our lives. One of the best ways to take back that control is to force yourself to understand money at its most basic level. Here’s the formula: cash in must be greater than cash out. It’s that simple. Before you start worrying about debt-levels and saving for RRSPs, it’s imperative to make that formula part of your life. Looking around at all your neighbours driving brand new cars, purchasing big homes and cottages (that they probably can’t afford), and flying to Florida every winter, you’ll probably have to learn to

live without some of that luxury. But in the end, it’s worth it. You’ll be financially literate. You’ll own the money, rather than having it own you. And that just may make you feel like the richest person in the world.

Money makes the world go around, but what do we really know about it? Not much, according to most financial institutions taking part in financial literacy month. And this is not about knowing the difference between stocks and bonds. It’s more about – what they called in the old days – knowing how to balance a chequebook. But with credit so widely available and financial education so unavailable, most Canadians, so statistics suggest, are getting taken for a ride. One of the first steps toward financial literacy is understanding how to develop a budget. I encourage my children to do this before they hit the white elephant table at the local school fundraiser each Christmas. We count out their quarters, nickels, and dimes, do some quick math, and figure out how much they have to spend before they go in. It’s important to me that they understand both the value of the money, and how much they actually have in hand, (something most adults don’t get). This saves them the embarrassment of getting to the “checkout” with a 20-dollar bill, (an unfathomable amount to their little brains), and thinking they cannot afford a 25-cent item. (This happened to a little girl last year.) Working out a budget is easier than

North Grenville’s archives should be housed rent-free. So believes David Shanahan, president of the North Grenville Historical Society, which currently pays the municipality $3,000 in annual rent to store the archives in an upper room of the courthouse on Water Street in Kemptville. At the Nov. 7 Committee of the Whole meeting, Shanahan argued that safekeeping local history and conducting archival and genealogical research for residents is a public service. He thinks the society should be free to put its meager earnings from a provincial grant and membership fees towards acquiring and preserving priceless records and artifacts from North Grenville’s past, and making presentations to schools and community groups. Shanahan is “incredibly grateful” for council’s support and for the space, but he and other members currently invest their own money into the group’s projects, such as restoring the First World War photographs by Kemptville’s Walter Tuck that were unveiled to the public during Remembrance Week. The rent money – a pittance in terms of council’s overall budget, Shanahan noted – would be better and more efficiently spent on heritage promotion, which in turn generates interest in the region and economic activity. Every other historical society in Eastern Ontario gets financial support from its municipality or free rent, or both, Shanahan pointed out. Deputy Mayor Ken Finnerty – whom Shanahan called “a living archive” of

North Grenville’s history – said he routinely sends residents with historical material to the archives. “I personally think it’s money well spent to not charge rent here. I couldn’t sit here and say I wouldn’t support removing rental fees from this organization,” Finnerty said. Coun. Tim Sutton wants to the see the Historical Society “be a lot more proactive” by setting up more public displays to boost its profile, and charging for research services to solve its “cash crunch.” Shanahan replied that charging for research would lead to inquiries drying up, especially since so much is already done for free via email. He would love to create more displays, but all the money is currently going toward the rent. “If we didn’t have to pay the rent, there wouldn’t be a cash crunch,” he said, adding that public support in the form of 70 emails to council on the rent issue suggests that the society is doing a good job. “People appreciate it – people care about the archives,” he said. “Right now, the services are available free to the community, and that’s the way we want to keep it.” Coun. Barb Tobin countered that council must justify all expenses, no matter how small, and said that the Historical Society has nowhere else to go. Shanahan replied that they could meet anywhere, but being in the courthouse helps the group connect with the community. Sutton wondered if the North Grenville group could join forces with other historical societies in the region to share costs. “I would hate to see us lose our archive to Brockville” if North Grenville was merged into a county-wide group, said Mayor David Gordon.

Letter to the Editor This week on CTV Ottawa news there was a segment on how difficult it is for veterans in nursing homes to find transportation in order to be able to take part in the Remembrance Day services. Apparently one veteran was showcased and there were a number of agencies that offered their services. Well, the same thing happened here in Kemptville. My father is 95 years old and a veteran of both WWII and the Korean Conflict. He resides in a nursing home now and because he is confined to a wheelchair, I had no transportation for him to attend the services here. There are amazing people in Kemptville, not just in Ottawa. North Grenville Accessible Transportion picked up my dad at the “out of town” nursing home, delivered him to the

ceremony, and then took him back in time for his lunch. Community Living rearranged all their scheduled services with NGAT so that Jeff Arcand could free his agenda to take care of Dad. ( It was Jeff that advocated for my dad to his superior and I am truly grateful). Joanne Dudka, president of the Kemptville Legion, made it possible for the accessible bus to pull into a reserved spot so Dad could be unloaded with ease. She also invited him to be beside her and with the other frail veterans as the fire department, police department and the able veterans marched past and saluted. After the ceremony, a young teacher from a local public school brought his class over to gather around my dad’s wheelchair to

thank him personally for all that he had done for Canada. This young man was very well versed about the medals that Dad proudly displayed and took the few moments to teach his eager class the names of each of the medals. Believe me when I say that it was a very touching moment for me. When we got Dad settled in the bus for the return trip, he was crying. He said that he had had a wonderful time! How does one ever thank the people responsible for this? I think it was they that were thanking my dad for the sacrifices he made for them.

Widening County Road 43 a “top priority” J.P. ANTONACCI jp.antonacci@metroland.com

North Grenville council approved a recommendation from the municipality’s economic development committee to push for the widening of Country Road 43 to four lanes. Expansion of the busy road will allow North Grenville “to continue to grow in a balanced, orderly fashion,” said Coun. Tim Sutton. The committee recommended that council declare the road widening project a “top priority” in the next budget and dedicate funds for the project – which would include sidewalks, bike lanes and improved lighting – over the next few years. The United Counties of Leeds and Grenville would be asked to make a similar decla-

ration and commit resources to the project. MPP Steve Clark and MP Gord Brown will also be approached to find ways for the provincial and federal government to help North

Greville reach “our ongoing potential as a community” and provide services to existing and future residents through widening the main thoroughfare, Sutton said.

Kemptville photographer captured the Great War J.P. ANTONACCI jp.antonacci@metroland.com

Armed only with his Bellows camera and a tripod, Kemptville photographer Walter Tuck marched alongside Canadian troops and captured remarkable scenes from the front during the latter years of the First World War. Ten of Tuck’s wartime photographs, which were enlarged by the North Grenville Historical Society and unveiled at a Nov. 9 meeting, take viewers from the muddy trenches of Passchendaele to the summit of Vimy Ridge. The photos – surprisingly crisp considering the turbulent conditions in which they were taken – depict a soldier and his dog in the trenches, a group of tired Canadians putting on a brave face for the camera, and the battlefield burial of a Major Knight of the Eaton Machine Gun Battery. Tuck snapped flying ace Billy Bishop by his airplane and British King George V meeting troops in the field. He also captured a carrier pigeon taking wing to deliver a message from the trenches. He was either a daredevil or had nerves of steel, since he stood before a tank bearing down on him full speed to take a dramatic photograph during the Battle of the Somme. “You have to wonder how he got out of the way – he didn’t have a zoom lens,” Shanahan marveled. The historian was overjoyed when Bill and Jean Kilfoyle donated the package of three by five inch pictures to the archive last year. Young Bill bought 25 wartime photos after Tuck’s studio – which was located where Capilano pizza is today, across from the cenotaph – closed some 50 years ago and its contents were put up for sale to the public. Because Tuck was an official war photographer, Shanahan imagines his negatives are in the War Museum archives, but the photographs themselves never left Kemptville. The photos – which cost the society $700 to enlarge and frame – capture riveting details of life at the front. “This is a jewel – you’re not going to

find these anywhere else,” Shanahan said, adding that now that the pictures are part of the archives’ permanent collection, he plans to display them every November, and throughout the year at the Municipal Centre and to interested groups. The photos – with Tuck’s handwritten captions scrawled on the back – are wonderful teaching tools, he said, looking at soldiers standing ankle-deep in a muddy trench as the war raged around them. “You can hear everything you want about the battles and what it was like…but that picture brings home so much more than text would,” Shanahan said. “(The collection) is an incredible gift to the community.” Shanahan’s grandfather, a First World War veteran, sparked the future historian’s love of the past by taking him to museums and Remembrance Day ceremonies. The Kemptville area was initially settled by British veterans of the American Revolutionary War, he noted, and settlers J.P. Antonacci Photo/Advance Staff were again pressed into service during the War of 1812 and the Fenian raids. “The history of veterans goes back so far, and it’s such an important part of Veterans and Sea Cadets took part in the Remembrance Day ceremonies last Friday. what makes up this community,” Shanahan said. Part of that history was preserved when veteran Owen Fitz’Gerald rescued a large bronze plaque listing the soldiers from Oxford Mills who fought in the First World War. The plaque, which Fitz’Gerald saved from the former Anglican church in Oxford Mills, includes the names of Thomas Beckett and Harry Acton, believed to be the founders of Beckett’s Landing and Actons Corners. Some 30 people at the meeting heard an update from Fitz’Gerald and Roy Brown about progress at Veterans Way Memorial Park, and looked through binders containing information about the names engraved on the Kemptville cenotaph. “We cannot return our sons and daughters, but we will remember them,” Fitz’Gerald said.

By TRACEY TONG They fundraised, cycled, and supported local cancer research to the tune of $1.8 million. Recently, The Ottawa Hospital Foundation recognized its top fundraisers in September’s Ride the Rideau, fuelled by Nordion – a 100-kilometre Ottawa to Merrickville bike tour in support of research at The Ottawa Hospital – for their outstanding contributions and to show them the impact of their fundraising. The event, which raised $2.7 million in just two years, has quickly grown to become the top cancer fundraiser in eastern Ontario. This year, more than 715 riders – from Starbucks baristas to CEOs of major corporations – took part in the event. The top fundraising team for the second year was the Brick Peddlers, led by event champion Robert Merkley of Merkley Supply Inc. Ottawa’s construction and homebuilding industry has embraced the event – other teams recognized included ones from the Ottawa Construction Association, Minto, Boone Plumbing and Heating Supply, and PCL, among others. Individual riders who raised $10,000 or more were also inducted into the Peloton Club at the event. The top fundraiser was Mike Caletti, who raised $68,988. Other members included Dr. Joel Werier, Mike Bray, Greg Capello, Claude Des Rosiers, Roger Greenberg, David Herlihey, Greg Kane, Neil Maholtra, Brock Marshall, Robert Merkley, and Charles Armand Turpin. “The overwhelming support that we have received from some of the biggest names in the Ottawa business community shows how crucial cancer research is,” said Tim Kluke, President and

CEO of The Ottawa Hospital Foundation. CEO of title sponsor Nordion Steve West, who also took part in the ride, said as a company, “Nordion is extremely proud to support Ride the Rideau as it continues to contribute to cancer research that will benefit patients in the Ottawa region, and around the world.” Funds raised from this year’s event are supporting a number of related cancer research initiatives, including clinical trials and the development of novel targeted therapies. “Each cancer, like each patient, is different,” said Dr. Duncan Stewart, CEO and Scientific Director of the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute and a Ride the Rideau participant. “By developing personalized therapies that are tailored for each patient, we will be able to give people treatments that are more likely to work from the very beginning.” Registration for Ride the Rideau 2012 has opened. To learn more about and sign up for the event, to be held Saturday, September 8, 2012, visit www.ridetherideau.ca.

Playgoers who prefer their drama in small doses need look no further than the Merrickville Community Centre, where Theatre Night in Merrickville (TNIM) presents An Evening of One-Act Plays with 8 p.m. performances from Nov. 17 to 19, and a 2 p.m. matinee on Nov. 20. The best one-act plays cram lots of emotion and character development into a short time, and the three plays offered in Merrickville this week are no exception. Buttonholes In Silk by Gail Fricker takes a multi-generational look at the daughter, mother, grandmother relationship. Fricker, a Canadian by way of England, set the play in Brighton Beach, where director Margaret Shearman happens to hail from. That geographical connection, plus the chance to explore the maternal relationship on stage, drew her to the play. “It’s a very clever little dialogue about relationships and how they follow each other through the generations – people keep making the same mistakes over and over again, and nobody listens,” Shearman said. It’s not a comedy, she laughs, but there are moments of redemption between the 90-year-old grandmother, her 60-year-old

daughter and 30-year-old granddaughter. “The message is, listen to people – what they’re saying, doing, feeling. Because families don’t listen to one another, do they?” she said. One-act plays are challenging works, Shearman added, since so much must be communicated over a condensed period. She feels that many scripts aren’t up to the task, but says Buttonholes In Silk is a “touching” play that she hopes audiences will enjoy and connect with. Maureen Overy helms the other two plays on the bill. According to the TNIM website, in The Applicant by John Neher, “Joe wakes up to find himself almost dead in Purgatory and facing a mountain of paperwork to allow his admittance; much like his real life.” This Is A Play, by Nova Scotia playwright Daniel MacIvor, is a critically acclaimed play within a play that takes a whimsical look at what actors think about while they perform. The cast presented this play at the Eastern Ontario Drama League Play Festival in Perth on Nov. 11. All three plays will be performed each night. Tickets are $12, general admission, though Thursday is “bring a friend night,” which means tickets are two for one. For tickets and information, call Kym at 269-3424.

The dinner will coincide with parent teacher interviews. The cafeteria will be the place to be from 4 to 8 p.m. for a great meal of spaghetti, caesar salad, garlic bread and dessert. The cost is only $10 per person or $30 for a family.

All of the proceeds from the dinner will go towards the student’s poverty exposure trip. This is the second year that St. Michael students have headed off to the Dominican Republic. There they will have the opportunity to see and

Last June, council approved funding for ten community organizations through the community grants program. The grants, which went toward specific projects outlined in applications to the municipality, totaled $5,600, leaving $2,400 of the total $8,000 grant budget to be distributed in the fall. However, when council requested funding applications in September, the only group to respond was St. Michael Catholic High School in Kemptville, which asked for $1,000 toward a tent shelter for the cross country and track and field teams to use at home and away events. The tent will also be shared with other community groups and events like the Dandelion Festival,

according to conditions to be determined. After the rush of applications in the spring, treasurer Sheila Kehoe said she was “a little disappointed” at the lack of interest from community groups in the fall, and speculated that groups were just getting going after the summer and weren’t ready to apply for funding. The committee charged with dispersing the community grants gave some groups less than they asked for in the spring, thinking that some money should be saved for the fall round. That philosophy might be reconsidered next year in favour of awarding the money based on need, until it runs out, Kehoe said. “There certainly were needs in the spring and I want to ensure this program continues at the same dollar amount,” agreed Councillor Bard Tobin.

Fifty students from the Catholic School Board of Eastern Ontario will be leaving for the Dominican Republic on March Break. The official name of the trip is the Dominican Experience Poverty Exposure Trip. Five of the travelers will be from St. Michael Catholic High School in Kemptville. This will be the first time the school has taken part in the poverty exposure program. They will begin their experience in the city of San Pedro de Macoris. While the city can boast a reasonably healthy economy, the rural areas outside of the city exist at the opposite end of the economic spectrum. These areas are the ones the students will be visiting. Jordan Murray, Lara Aleinik, Brodie Geurkink, Harleen Grewal, Ella Besserer along with student advisor Mary Kate Bridson will be among the 50-strong group visiting the Dominican Republic.

Storytelling never goes out of fashion JOSEPH MORIN joe.morin@metroland.com

Jim Bertram, a retired school teacher who lives in North Grenville has always enjoyed telling a good story, especially to his children. With the arrival of his first grandchild Matteo he decided to publish a children’s book called Artie’s Great day. The pictures and text in the book are black and white. Jim’s daughter, Erika and husband Joe Cuccaro drew the pictures making the project a truly family one. This first book is designed and published by Larry Thompson of Greyweathers Press in Merrickvillle. The book tells the tale of Artie, a small black and white Boston terrier. Artie looks after and is the guardian of his people, Jim and Sonni. The story takes Artie to different gardens or places in time where there are other dogs acting as guardians to different versions of Jim and Sonni. The book introduces children to the notion of responsibility, time and changing perspectives in a simple and pleasant way. Jim remembers that after he retired from teaching he still wanted to tell stories. All he needed was some event to act as a catalyst to get him going. “I needed something to motivate me and then my grandson came along,” remembers Ber-

tram. He felt he needed to mark the occasion of Matteo’s arrival. He came up with story and then asked his daughter Erika and son- in- law Joe if they wanted to help him out by creating the artwork to go along with the story. The result is striking and the clear and simple drawings compliment the story. ‘There are different levels to the book,” said Bertram. “Artie feels responsible. Children can relate to Artie’s size because they are small to. Despite his size he feels he can guard his family.” The author feels the story is a family history in a sense and is a reflection on any family. The story behind the story is that Jim and Sonni have enjoyed having a family dog all of their lives. The different dogs that Artie meets in his mysterious travels represent those other cherished family dogs who guarded Jim and Sonni in their own time. The theme of the story is simple. “No one is so small they cannot do something for others or themselves,” explained Bertram. The book, Arties Great Day can be found in Merrickville at the Anarchy Gallery. In Kemptville the book is at: To be Continued and Kemptville Home Support. In Winchester the book can be found at: Belle Flowers and gifts and in Ottawa at the Nest and Workshop on Dalhousie Street.

Meeting the rural hospice needs: Dignity House Hospice works to provide palliative care services Launching the Day Hospice Program Last January, Dignity House Hospice launched the day hospice program, where up to six participants with life-limiting illnesses get together once a week at the McMartin House in Perth. Scanlon, a registered nurse qualified in palliative care, directs the free, five-hour program. Clients take part in facilitated group discussions, followed by lunch and an afternoon spent completing crafts, welcoming a guest speaker or choosing a client-selected activity.

home plays many roles. It meets one’s emotional, social and physical needs. It provides a calming, stable environment. It’s also a place of respect. A home’s comforts are exactly why five Perth women decided to launch a palliative care hospice initiative in Lanark County in 2008. Thus began the Dignity House Hospice dream. Alanna Scanlon, Janet Stark, Krista Marks-Cleroux, Sue Brown, and Stephanie Smart initiated the launch to the Dignity House Hospice with a mission to assist individuals diagnosed with life-limiting illnesses to live as fully as possible while maintaining their dignity and comfort, as well as provide support to their families and friends. Dignity House is a response to the growing, need for palliative care services. The program currently offers a day hospice program and the Board is working to open a local, full-time residential hospice.

Dignity House Hospice works to provide palliative care services share their hopes and concerns with others in similar circumstances; participants will sometimes express concerns they normally wouldn’t share with their caregivers,” he explains. “It’s also a chance to give the caregivers a break.” Scanlon also stays in touch with the caregivers and monitors the participant’s health, notifying their physician if needed. “When the participants are monitored crises are more likely to be avoided, their morale is up and you should have fewer visits to the emergency services and possible admission to hospital,” says Burt. “This alone has the potential to save the government thousands of dollars each year.” The day program’s launch brings the Dignity House Board of Directors to its next goal: to open a residential hospice program.

Opening a residential hospice delivers a two-fold advantage: it keeps patients with life-limiting conditions out of acute care beds, and it’s a comforting alternative for both the patient and their families not having to spend their final moments in a hospital or long-term care facility. Instead, the hospice would provide around-the-clock patient care while their loved ones can complete their relationship with their loved ones rather than be the primary caregiver “ Family support can break down due to overwhelming fatigue in the last weeks of a per-

son’s life and the patient, as well as the caregiver can end up in hospital.. There is a gap between someone staying at their home and their end of life and we want to provide that service,” explains Burt. But to make this happen, Dignity House Hospice has to acquire a residential facility within the Perth area that could accommodate three to four clients. It’s a long-term commitment, but the volunteers remain determined to create a warm, homelike environment in which the dying can live their last days with humanity and dignity.

With no such services currently offered within Lanark County, the residential hospice facility would meet a community-wide need. This is why the five women dedicated themselves to make it happen; but little did they know it would involve so much work. “Our dream was to have a residential place in our area for palliative care patients,” explains Smart, who now serves as the treasurer. “But we learned it was going to be more complicated than we thought.” The provincial government currently provides limited financial support to a few hospices in Ontario. Dignity House receives no funding and thus has to come up with the housing and operational costs. To bring the problem to the health care forefront, Dignity House Board works closely with the South East Local Health In-

tegration Network (SELHIN) Palliative Care and End of Life (PAL & EOL)Network to develop standards and procedures that will help reinforce the growing demand for a palliative care facility in Lanark County as well as lead to government funding. In the meantime, Dignity House Hospice will continue to garner local and provincial support. “The community has been very generous to date as most people recognize the need for this service. We hope that the Dignity House residential hospice in Lanark County will be a product of the community and meld with both the natural environment and the community organizations that surround it,” says Burt. Dignity House Hospice is actively seeking more members for its Board as well as volunteers within the program. Additionally there are funding opportunities.

Did you know? Laughter and music just may be good for the heart. Millions of people routinely take prescription medications or make dietary changes, such as eliminating salt from their diets, in an effort to lower blood pressure. However, for those who are interested in making some easy lifestyle changes that can result in modest reductions in blood pressure, listening to music or laughing more may do the trick. In a Japanese study presented in May at an American Heart Association meeting, researchers explained that people who took part in bimonthly group sessions built around music or laughter lowered their

systolic blood pressure (the top number in the reading, which measures the pressure in the arteries when the heart beats) by an average of five to six points after three months. In contrast, the average blood-pressure reading in a control group that received neither therapy didn’t move. According to experts, this decline in pressure is the equivalent of what someone could expect fromadopting a low-salt diet or losing 10 pounds. The American Heart Association recommends that healthy blood pressure should be less than 120 for systolic and less than 80 for diastolic.

Coping with stress at the office things they can do to reduce the stress that often accompanies such fears. Stress is a part of most professions and can even be a good motivator. However, when stress is prolonged or excessive, the results can be very unhealthy. Men and women with high stress levels are more likely to suffer from depression, anxiety and cardiovascular disease. When faced with prolonged or excessive stress at the office, men and women can take the following approaches to avoid succumbing to stress. • Determine what is causing the stress. Stress triggers vary depending on the individual, so men and women who are coping with excessive stress should write down anything that causes them a negative response, whether that response is physical, emotional or mental. After a week, sit down and look at the various things that triggered these negative responses. Choose one and work to resolve it. Determine if there is a

way this trigger can be avoided. Do this with each trigger one by one. It might not be possible to successfully address each trigger, but it’s worth the try and it is likely that certain triggers can be successfully avoided. • Manage time effectively. One of the problems with an increased workload is the time in the day

to complete that work does not simultaneously increase. This reality makes it easy to become overwhelmed with stress. But a few time management techniques can help. Prioritize certain tasks, ensuring projects that are time-sensitive get done ahead of those that aren’t. When setting a schedule for work, be realistic. If a schedule isn’t realistic, that will only cause more stress. • Maintain a personal life. Effectively managing stress at work involves having a personal life away from the office. All work and no play is a recipe for stress. No matter how big a workload awaits you at the office, be sure to make time for enjoyable activities away from work. Spend time with friends and family, plan a weekend getaway or simply relax at home. Such time, even if it’s not as often as you might like, makes dealing with stress at the office that much easier to handle. • Remain physically active.

Exercise is a great remedy for stress. In fact, the American Psychological Association notes that studies have suggested physically active people have lower rates of anxiety and depression than sedentary people. While research is ongoing, some researchers feel exercise enhances the body’s ability to respond to stress. In addition, exercise seems to give the body practice at dealing with stress. While exercising, the body’s physiological systems are forced to communicate with one another. These same systems must also communicate with one another when responding to stress. Regular exercise helps the body communicate more efficiently, something that helps when the time comes to respond to stress. Stress at the office is likely always going to be a concern for working men and women. However, there are ways to effectively cope with stress no matter how daunting a workload might be.

he workers of the world are working more. So says an annual study of employee benefit trends from MetLife. In 2010, 40 percent of employees admitted their workload had increased compared with the previous year. While there are many reasons that can account for a heavier workload at the office, heavy layoffs in countries across the globe has, in many instances, left those who weren’t laid off with extra work. And companies might be surprised to know just how much this approach isn’t working. TheMetLife study also found that 68 percent of employees surveyed reported that the quality of their work had suffered and that fear of losing their jobs played a significant role in how well they did their jobs. While employees might not be able to quell their fears of one day being laid off, there are

The connection between oral health and overall health aintaining good oral health may be more important than you realize Mounting scientific evidence suggests that there is a link between oral health and a person’s overall health. Having healthy teeth and gums isn’t a given. If your gums are puffy, red and bleed easily, you have gingivitis, a serious gum infection that destroys the gums and progresses to periodontitis which destroys the bone that supports your teeth. Signs and symptoms can include: swollen gums, bright red or purplish gums that feel tender when touched and may be receding, bad breath or a bad taste in your mouth and possible loose teeth. Bacteria from your mouth enters your bloodstream and flows throughout your body making you at risk for HEART ATTACK or STROKE or other serious health problems, like diabetes. The good news is, prevention is

Oral Cancer gets less publicity than any other cancer types, but it is common and can be a terrible disease. Its detection falls within the realm of the dental professional. Detection and treatment of oral cancer is an opportunity to save a life. Oral cancer is usually detected far too late for conservative treatment which causes the following dismal statistics. The survival rate is between 80% and 90% when oral cancer is caught early, but that rate plummets to around 30% when the condition is caught late. Your dental professional should provide a thorough oral cancer screening at least once a year simply by looking for changes in the mouth that might signal the beginnings of cancer. A thorough head and neck examination should be part of each patient’s dental hygiene visit.

Avoid succumbing to cold and u season he arrival of winter coincides with the arrival of other things as well. The holiday season. Snow days from school. Weekends spent skiing and snowboarding with family and friends. While each of those things is something to look forward to, one thing also synonymous with winter is never welcomed with open arms. Cold and u season has an impact on nearly every household each winter, forcing kids and adults alike to put life on hold as they rest and recover. To many people, u shots are enough to keep them going strong through cold and u season, but not everyone has access to u shots. Even those who do might still get colds if they don’t take steps to stay healthy when the mercury drops. This winter, people wanting to avoid the worst of cold and u season can take several precautions to reduce their risks of getting a cold or the u.

Spending time outdoors and dressing properly are two ways to reduce risk for cold and u.

Around the House People can take several steps to make their homes safer and warmer, which should help them reduce their risk of cold and u. Winterizing a home is perhaps the best thing a homeowner can do to make a home safer and warmer.

Install storm windows and caulk around doors and windows to keep warm air in the home and prevent cold air from coming in. If winter has yet to arrive, inspect the heating system. If winter has already arrived, schedule an inspection as soon as possible. Make sure the system is working properly. Ideally, the heating system should be serviced by a professional to ensure the ventilation is working properly. Homeowners with functioning ďŹ replaces in their homes should have the ďŹ replace inspected and cleaned before using it for the ďŹ rst time.

Addressing Attire Winter weather should never catch adults or children offguard with regards to their wardrobe. Once cold weather arrives, dress appropriately whenever leaving the home to reduce the risk of cold and u. Appropriate attire includes wearing outdoor clothing, such as winter coats,

Gord Brown, Member of Parliament for Leeds-Grenville, recently announced that this year’s Hockey Night in LeedsGrenville United Way fundraiser will take place at the Lou Jeffries Gananoque and TLTI Recreation Center in Gananoque on Sunday, Nov. 20. Game time is 3 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at the United Way office in Brockville or by calling 613-342-8889. This is the fifth year for the popular fundraiser that has taken place in Kemptville, Brockville, Prescott and Cardinal in previous years. To date, the annual event has raised over $200,000 for the Leeds-Grenville United Way. The game features former NHL stars, Conservative Members of

Parliament, local celebrities and local politicians on the ice. “It will be a great afternoon of hockey entertainment for a tremendous cause,” says Brown. “I look forward to seeing everyone there.” Alyn McCauley will be the Honourary Chair at this year’s event. “It is wonderful to have Alyn on board as this year’s Honourary Chair,” says Brown. “Alyn continues to provide inspiration to local youth who are involved in this great sport,” he says. McCauley was a superstar Junior player with the Ottawa 67s before moving to the NHL. He played for the Toronto Maple Leafs, San Jose Sharks and the Kings before a recurring knee injury forced him to retire from playing. He is now working as a scout for the Los Angeles Kings of the NHL.

5th Annual Hockey Game For United Way


Sports

73’s extend losing streak to 19 BRIAN WILSON Special to the Advance

Ben Hutton, captain of the 73’s, has had an outstanding tournament in the World Junior A Championship played in Langley, B.C. The first game saw Canada East defeat the Czech Republic. Hutton earned an assist in that game. In the second game, Canada East lost to Russia 3-2 in a shootout. He scored the first goal in that game. In the semi-final, Canada East took on the defending champion USA. Avenging last year’s gold medal loss, Canada East defeated the USA 4-2. The victory pitted Canada East against Canada West for this year’s gold medal. West went on to defeat East by a score of 4-2. In that game, Hutton set up the first East goal in the second period. On Friday, Nov.11, Kemptville travelled to Brockville for a game with the Braves. Brockville scored often as the game progressed. Three goals in the first and two more in the second and third gave the Braves a 7-0 lead.

At 8:27 of the third, Hiio Herne scored his first goal of the season to break the shutout bid of Brockville’s goaltender, Andrew Pikul. The goal was set up by Billy Ulrick. The two 73’s goaltenders faced a total of 45 shots by the Braves. Sunday, Nov. 13 saw the Kanata Stallions visit North Grenville. The Stallions took a 1-0 lead into the first intermission in what was a tight checking period. In the second, Kanata exploded for three goals, one short handed, one at even strength and one on the power play. The third period saw the Stallions add two more to their lead and continue on to win the game with a 6-0 margin. Kemptville 73’s goaltender, Ryan Mulder played well facing a 45 shot barrage. The two losses on the weekend run the current winless streak to nineteen games. Next week’s game will have the 73’s on the road. They play the Grads in Cumberland on Nov. 15, the Rangers in Gloucester on Nov. 18 and the Colts in Cornwall on Nov.19.

The OPP asks residents to keep police lines free emergency calls, and call the Ministry of Transportation’s toll-free inquiry line at 1-800-268-4686 or visit mto.gov. on.ca for information on road closures and conditions.

The Kemptville District Hospital is now better able to detect very early breast cancer with its new digital mammography unit. The hospital was able to purchase the unit thanks to the fundraising efforts of the Kemptville District Hospital Foundation. A digital unit was selected because the images they take provide a better contrast than filmscreen images. It also creates clearer images of dense breast tissue, which is usually found in premenopausal women.

Of the spots, specks and masses that vary in size in the phantom, he could see a speck group that usually doesn’t show up. Along with clearer images, patients are also exposed to lower doses of radiation when the digital images are taken. The digital images captured in Kemptville are transmitted to the Queensway Carleton Hospital in Ottawa via a Picture Archiving and Communication System. Radiologists in Ottawa read the mammograms and send a report to the ordering doctor in approximately one week. “Our partnership with the Diagnostic Imaging Department at the Queensway Carleton Hospi-
