Transparency the goal for Kemptville Fire Department Fire investigation and prevention also priorities in Fire Marshal’s report

Improved human resources policies will remove the suggestions of nepotism and biased promotions that previously marred the Kemptville Fire Department (KFD), according to Fire Chief Paul Hutt. Hutt recently updated North Grenville Committee of the Whole as to how the recommendations in the report from the Ontario Office of the Fire Marshal (OFM) are being implemented. In 2009, North Grenville council asked the Fire Marshal to take a critical look at every aspect of the department’s operations, with an eye toward strategic planning for the future. The review identified several urgent areas of need, and gave the incoming chief a lot to think about as he crafted a plan to modernize the department. Administrative issues and staffing were high on the list of priority items, and Hutt decided that clear and effective procedures were needed to make the hiring and promotion process completely transparent. “I think you have to apply some common sense and treat people fairly, and by having policies and procedures to dictate what processes you have to follow, it kind of guides you in the right direction and makes sure that you’re doing things fairly and consistently,” Hutt said. “Certainly, moving forward, I don’t think we’ll see any more difficulties in terms of the hiring process.” See FIRE page 11

HOLIDAY TRAIN ROLLS INTO MERRICKVILLE It seemed like the entire village of Merrickville – along with more than a few out-oftowners – came out to see the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train as it stopped in Merrickville on Sunday, Nov. 27. The train is making its way across the country, drawing crowds and collecting donations of food and funds for local food banks. Folk singer Valdy and young Ottawa rockers The Brothers Dubé entertained the large crowd, and the magic of Christmas kept the rain at bay so Santa Claus could greet the many children who came to meet him. Since the train’s maiden voyage in 1999, more than $5.6 million and over 2.45 million pounds of food have been collected in Canada and the United States.

lies. Hopping on and off the horse-drawn wagon winding its way through Old Town, visitors can sing along with roving carollers, roast chestnuts over an open fire and hot dogs and s’mores over piping hot fire barrels – under the watchful eye of volunteers from the fire department and Kemptville Youth Centre – and limber up for the holiday season with Yoga with Santa at Bodhi Tree Yoga. There will be baked goods and a barbecue on offer at the former fire hall on Reuben Crescent, where artist Carol Pillar will help visitors decorate Christmas cards from 12 to 2 p.m. For more arts and crafts, the elves at To Be Continued will offer snowflake ornament decorating from 1 to 3 p.m. As a special treat, Mayor David Gordon will spellbind listeners with a dramatic reading of the classic holiday story ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas outside The Book Market at noon. The many activities at this inaugural festival give Kelaher hope that future years will bring an even bigger Yuletide spectacle to North Grenville. “This is something we can grow and get bigger with,” he said. Revelers are encouraged to bring along their Christmas shopping lists, as many Old Town businesses will offer unique bargains. Completing a festival passport by visiting various stores will win one lucky shopper a gift basket valued at over $1,000. Some of the many activities arranged by local businesses include pony rides near B&H and Wyatt’s Grill, open stage music at the branch and an all-day piano recital at Geronimo, and arts and crafts at Panache and The Crusty Baker, along with free hot drinks, gifts and gift wrapping at many stores, including a spirited adults-only hot chocolate served at O’Heaphy’s Irish Pub. That so many business owners – including some usually closed on Sundays – unhesitatingly committed to Old Town Christmas warmed the coordinator’s heart. “I’m a big believer in tourism as an economic driver – it can be done,” said Kelaher. “It’s nice that we’re all working together – without that, it wouldn’t be worth doing.” Old Town Christmas is part of a full day of Christmas fun in North Grenville that begins with Breakfast with Santa at the Municipal Centre at 9 and 11 a.m. (call 258-9661 for tickets) and ends with a performance of Handel’s Messiah by the North Grenville’s Concert at St. James Anglican Church that night.

Attendees at the third annual Leeds and Grenville economic development summit on Nov. 25 were greeted with good news about the renewal of the Eastern Ontario Development Program (EODP), a federal program that provides funding to businesses and nonprofit groups for specific projects through the regional Community Futures Development Corporations (CFDC). More details emerged about the $30 million program, which falls under the umbrella of the second phase of the federal government’s economic action plan. Previously, recipients had to spend EODP grants within a single fiscal year. This meant, in effect, that only short-term projects were eligible for funding, to a maximum of $25,000. Under the new terms, the $30 million is spread over three years, which allows organizations to apply for multi-year projects, to a maximum of $100,000. This is exciting news, and something the CFDCs had been asking for, said Heather Lawless, executive director of the Grenville CFDC.

Heather Lawless announced the renewal of the Eastern Ontario Development Program last Friday. “It allows our applicants to be a little more strategic in planning,” she said, explaining that the longer timeframe and greater dollar amount means that more ambitious projects can continue over time, assured of steady funding. The new regulations also allow several CFDCs to collaborate on a multi-county project. “We look forward to having a bigger impact with these types of

made locally and “clearly reflect community priorities,” the program represents “the best spent economic development money in Canada,” said Leeds-Grenville MP Gord Brown. The EODP is not to be confused with the provincially funded Eastern Ontario Development Fund (EODF), a program that effectively serves the same function but draws from a different bank account. Leeds and Grenville MPP Steve Clark contends that the provincial program is being underutilized, since between $30 and $40 million of the original $80 million fund remains unspent three years after the program was launched. “Something is wrong when that much remains in the program,” he said. Clark reiterated his desire to see the nine Conservative and three Liberals MPPs in Eastern Ontario meet in a “non-partisan environment” to decide what to do with the EODF, which is set to expire next year. He circulated a petition asking for such a meeting as a way to “put the heat on” the provincial Liberals, he said. The 15 CFDCs max out their annual EODP funding by March 31, Lawless said. In years past, Grenville CFDC distributed $576,000 in grants to between 40 and 60 applicants. That amount will increase now that the CFDCs have $30 million to dispense over three years. Lawless believes the federal and provincial development programs complement each other. “What’s great about it is that they are two programs that invest in Eastern Ontario.” She hopes that the provincial money will be available to help the region after 2012, but said that if the province were to decide not to renew the EODF, it would not impact her organization’s ability to deliver EODP funding.

projects,” Lawless said. EODP loans to businesses are commonly spent on skills training, technology adaptation, youth employment and strategic planning. The program also supports community projects, all with an eye to a more diversified economy. To qualify for funding, applicants must clearly demonstrate that their project creates or retains jobs, a calling card of the federal economic action plan. Job creation has always been tracked, Lawless said, but now “job impact is of absolute importance. There is a recognition that job retention and maintaining an existing level of employment is equally important,” she said. Businesses and nonprofit organizations must also show evidence that they have leveraged all available funding or in kind donations from partner organizations before approaching the EODP for money. “That’s always been there with the Eastern Ontario Development Program, the requirement that you do show that you have partnerships in place,” Lawless said. This condition does not shut out groups with limited means and little ability to attract partners, since groups can still receive up to 100 per cent of the desired funding through the program. “However, higher priority is given to projects that have lined up other partners,” she said. In-kind donations – of facilities, expertise, donated services, and the like – are also recognized as partner contributions. “The way we look at it is: has the applicant invested to an amount that is appropriate to the wealth they have?” Lawless explained. And if the applicant can show that jobs will be kept or created because of their project, even better, she added. Because decisions about EODP funding are

You get what you pay for


he financial realities facing all Ontario municipalities in the years to come will be as challenging as they ever have been in the past. The North Grenville Police Services Board has taken the long view when it comes to dealing with increasing police costs. The board, armed with the results of a community survey, will be working with the Ontario Provincial Police as a new North Grenville policing contract is negotiated in 2013. North Grenville pays the OPP around $2.7 million each year of their five-year contract. How that money is spent is based on the OPP policing mandate. There has never been much, if any, of a disconnect between expectation of the North Grenville council and the OPP. The police services board anticipated that the new 2013 policing contract will come with hefty increases. The current contract is based, for example, on 2008 gas prices when gas sold for 80 some cents a litre. The survey, the first of its kind in North Grenville, is an attempt to ensure that the rising contract costs the community is asked to pay also reflects the most effective use of that money. The entire exercise is a fine example of a

municipal board acting in a proactive way. The survey zeros in on the priorities North Grenville residents feel should be at the top of the list when it comes to the kind of policing they will expect in the future. Crime prevention tops the list of priorities for North Grenville. The survey results will help the OPP fine tune their business plan for North Grenville and that is the idea behind the survey. The police services board is also promoting an idea to connect all of the other police services boards in Grenville County based on similar models in Lanark County and other parts of Ontario. Once more the theme is partnerships and cooperation between the three other police service boards in the county. The anticipated exchange of ideas and information will create a shortcut to a more effective policing strategy right across the board. The old saying “necessity is the mother of invention” could not be more applicable. Considering how the cost of keeping North Grenville safe for everyone is bound to go up, at least the community now has an excellent chance of getting what they want, nothing more and nothing less.


Our barn has a revolving door


e have kept Dennis the drover (not driver but drover; a driver just drives while Dennis does much more—it’s a rodeo out there sometimes folks) busy this past week. First we had him come and pick up our three male bull calves. You could hear the truck and metal trailer clanging and banging around the corner of our dirt road well before you could see it coming up the hill. The cattle were anxious to get out of the pen that the Farmer had successfully lured and locked them into the night before. I unhooked the electric fence wire (which I had already switched OFF), unlatched the front gate and swung it open for Dennis to drive through. His tires slipped a bit on the snow as he backed the huge trailer up to the mouth of the barn. With Dennis’ help, the Farmer let the female cows out. They were very happy to be free, and made a b-line to the feeder to see if the hay was any different from the stuff they had been eating on the inside. They obediently hopped aboard without any bait. When the metal doors swung shut, however, they began to bawl a little. This got their mothers’ attention. I went over and consoled my cows with kind words and a bucket of

The Accidental Farmwife Diana Fisher grain as the big white truck and trailer took their babies away. This morning, the cows all stopped chewing and stood frozen as they heard the sound of the trailer rounding the corner again. Maybe they thought their bulls were returning, or maybe they thought they were the next to be loaded aboard. “Young Angus is home, girls!” I said, cheerfully. Mocha turned her head quickly and looked at me, eyes wide. I opened the gate and the trailer backed into the opening. Dennis stepped down from the truck, walked around back and swung the doors open. “You’re home,

buddy,” he said softly to the black bull, who was significantly bigger than the last time I saw him. I swear he grew another 25% in the short time he was gone. We rented Angus out to one farmer in the spring, another in the summer and then he was home for just a day before he was rented out again for the fall. Some of his keepers fed him apples, while others fed him grain. His coat has a glossy sheen and he is far from the small calf that we first met a year and a half ago. I stood between two large trees as the bull was released into the yard. Immediately he snorted, pawed the ground and then curled back his upper lip and sniffed the air. The girls came over to greet him, and he walked with them over to the pasture field, as if reacquainting himself with the property. The cows are carrying his babies again and they will give birth in January and February. He will breed them one more time in March, and then we will probably sell him, possibly to one of the other farmers who have been renting him these past two years. He is a good bull, gentle natured, and he makes nice calves. Next week we will start taking some of our bigger lambs to market. I know which one I want to say goodbye to first. He is a big Suffolk lamb, with a black

face and white body. He used to jump in the feeders as soon as we filled them with hay. Not only will this soil the hay but the stupid lamb gets stuck in the feeder and it’s very difficult to get him out. We put him in with Rambo and his mate Gretel and he jumped out of that pen too. The Farmer put fences up over the feeders so he couldn’t jump into them anymore. The next day I found him on the highest stacked bale. I guess he decided to skip the feeder and go to the source. Philip has been released to mate as many ewes as he can. He is wearing a red crayon block in a halter on his chest. I can see that he has marked more than half of the herd so far. His babies will be born in early April. The population is ever-changing on the farm.

Saying thank you goes a long way Approximately two weeks ago, we all took some time to remember on November 11. Taking the time to participate in our town’s official ceremony is a great way to remember our soldiers, but it is also a wonderful opportunity for us to thank them as well for what they have done for us. In last week’s edition of the Advance, I was thrilled to find a letter to the editor written by Mrs. Kirkpatrick, the daughter of Mr. Ambrose Kirkpatrick, a WW2 veteran who was in attendance. Mrs. Kirkpatrick mentioned how happy and emotional her father was after a local elementary teacher took his class over to say thank you after

the closing of the ceremony. I was that teacher. Every year, the teachers at Kemptville Public School bring all students from grade 1 to 8 to the Cenotaph in order to witness and participate in Kemptville’s official ceremony. Every year, our students make us proud. They pay attention. They remain standing for the duration of the ceremony. They respect the two minutes of silence and stand still (not an easy task for six- year-old children). They show us, as well as the people of Kemptville, that they understand what this is all about. After the parade, I was waiting to take my grade five students back to school when I noticed an elderly man in a wheelchair, across the street.

He was holding his medals in a wooden display case. I invited my entire class to go and say thank you. What a great opportunity for my students to meet one of our few remaining World War Two soldiers. Here was a World War Two veteran who fought through France and Germany as a combat engineer and continued his military service into Korea. Now 95 years old, he held his medals with great pride. It was such a special moment for me to take my students up to him. I simply introduced myself as their teacher and without any prompting, the entire group of 28 students said “thank you” all at once. I am so proud of each and every one of them. It was actually a very emotional moment for me. I got

around this by taking the time to explain the meaning of each of his medals to my students as they listened with great care and interest. It was such a great ending to our Day of Remembrance. How wonderful it was to read about the impact this had on both Mr. Kirkpatrick and his daughter. Yet, more importantly, what a great lesson this was for my students! There was no math or spelling instruction here. Rather, this was a lesson on the importance of saying thank you. This was also a lesson on appreciation: on taking the time to appreciate all the wonderful things we have today because of soldiers such as Mr. Kirkpatrick and all of our other war veterans. My students were in the highest of spirits after I shared the editorial with them. I’ve often made it clear to them how important it is to say thank you, but now, after having shared Mrs. Kirkpatrick’s letter with them, my students know the “why” behind the lesson as well. As an experienced educator, I know how far that goes towards ensuring a rich and authentic understanding in learning and so I thank Mrs. Kirkpatrick for taking the time to mention my class in her letter to the editor.

My grandfather was a WW2 veteran. He passed away when I was very young and I never had the opportunity to speak with him about his experiences. This however fostered an interest in the conflict and, as such, I have been studying World War 2 for over 30 years now. I have had the opportunity to make lasting friendships with many veterans in my life. Sadly, most have now passed away. We continue to lose more and more of our WW2 veterans every day, and this is a trend that will unfortunately continue. This year, I noticed for the first time, there were no WW2 veterans marching in the parade. Regrettably, time waits for no one. Our opportunities to say thank you are slowly passing us by. We don’t have to wait until next November to say thank you. It’s a lesson I teach my students every year, and given the spectacular respect and ovation given to our veterans at the Cenotaph, it’s obvious that our community continues to lead by example. Well done Kemptville! Robert P. Lachance Elementary Immersion teacher Kemptville Public School

Winchester Hospital Heelers Many of your readers – and our supporters – are aware that the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation announced in June that the 2011 Weekend to End Women’s Cancers would be the last such event in Ottawa. After having participated in the Weekend for the past five years, the Winchester Hospital Heelers were disappointed by this news, to say the least. Despite the ORCF’s decision, the Heelers are committed to continuing our efforts to fundraise in support of local cancer care, and to give back to our communities that have been so generous. As a result, we undertook discussions with the Winchester District Memorial Hospital Foundation to explore the possibility of hosting a similar event in 2012 – an event that would take place right in our local area, that would encourage family participation, and that would see 100 per cent of the funds raised returned to the WDMH Foundation for local cancer programs. We are excited about the possibilities, and hope to have an announcement soon! In addition, recognizing that no one cancer diagnosis is more devastating than another, the Heelers will be expanding their fundraising focus to support local care for all cancers, just as soon as our current obligation to finance the digital mammography machine at WDMH has been met (hopefully in 2012). Since 2007, the Heelers have raised over $523,000, with 75 per cent of that amount ($392,000) redirected to the WDMH Foundation for local cancer programs. On behalf of all of the members of the Winchester Hospital Heelers, both past and present, we are so very grateful for the support of our communities in our fundraising efforts.

Naomi’s shelter in Winchester collecting Christmas gifts for women and children

Christmas is a time for giving, and an Ottawa South women’s shelter is asking residents to open their hearts to help make this holiday season a happy one for local women and children in need. For the second year in a row, real estate agent Elaine Taranu has organized the Open Hearts gift drive for Naomi’s Family Resource Centre in Winchester, which offers temporary shelter and support for women and children in the Metcalfe-Winchester region facing emotional, physical or sexual abuse. Taranu is collecting new, unwrapped gifts at several locations across Metcalfe and Leitrim, and her colleague Butch Oldford is collecting in Winchester, Chesterville and South Mountain. “I’m very aware of the desolation and isolation of these women and children at Christmas. It’s a very devastating thing, women and children are the core of the family. They have to flee their homes, the children are displaced from school and their friends. It’s a very difficult situation,” said

Taranu, the former CEO of YWCA Canada. Gifts for both women and children are sorted between a women’s Christmas room and a children’s Christmas room. Anyone who has used the centre’s services in the past year is then invited to come by and choose gifts for their family from the rooms. “The moms will go into the children’s room and choose a gift to put under the Christmas tree, and the kids will go into the mothers’ room to choose a gift for their mom. It’s really nice because it’s not only an “I receive” situation, it’s also the satisfaction of giving something to your mom,” explained Taranu. The shelter’s executive director Verna Leger said the program is important because the first Christmas after leaving an abusive situation can be very stressful. “In that first year their income may have dropped substantially. They may have to go on subsistence until their court process is finished. So it can be a strain financially, just when the cost for your heating and lights go up,” Léger said. Gifts for women can range from personal gifts like hairdryers and bath

towels to kitchen items like kettles, coffee makers and cookware. For children, toys and stuffed animals as well as arts and craft supplies, clothes and CD players top many lists. Naomi’s shelter is relatively small, hosting up to nine people at a time. But since the average stay is only about two weeks and the centre runs many other day-time support programs throughout the year, there could be several hundred women and children invited to use the Christmas gift service each year. Even so, there are sometimes surpluses which Léger said never go to waste. If there is an excess of one item, other shelters or support services in the Ottawa area may be contacted. If there are toys for an age group the shelter didn’t particularly serve this year, other shelters can benefit from those extras as well. Extra items are also saved in case women or children celebrate a birthday while staying at the shelter, and stuffed animals are used in the welcome bags children receive when they arrive with their mother. “The women are most, most appreciative,” Léger said.

Gifts can be donated in the Metcalfe area at the Leitrim Home Hardware at 4836 Bank Street, The Main Bar and Grill on Victoria Street in Metcalfe, and the Live and Learn Resource Centre in Metcalfe’s old town hall on Victoria Street. In Winchester, gifts can be dropped off at the Royal Bank on Main Street. Chesterville’s TD bank on Queen Street will also be collecting along with the Scotiabank on Main Street in South Mountain. Gifts will be collected until Saturday, Dec. 17. For more information, contact Elaine Taranu at 613-614-2885. To contact Naomi’s Family Resource Centre, call 613-774-2838.

Business owners seeking a knowledgeable outside perspective on their operations need look no further than the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville’s new Business Success Program. This “hands-on and grassroots” program matches volunteer coaches with successful business owners looking to revitalize and expand their companies, explained Wendy Onstein, manager of the Leeds and Grenville Small Business Enterprise Centre (SEC), at the 2011 Leeds and Grenville economic development summit in North Grenville on Nov. 25. “This program will foster the entrepreneurial culture and complement the many services

that already exist in our community,” Onstein said. The program will launch in March 2012. SEC will find the coaches – experts in finance, corporate law, marketing, technology, and human resource – and match them with businesses ready to improve in these areas. Onstein hopes these mentorship opportunities will help business owners improve their skills and further develop operations while allowing for business to business cooperation. The program is aimed at the retail, service, hospitality and light manufacturing industries in Leeds and Grenville. Finding ways for companies to create and retain jobs is one of the program’s key platforms, Onstein said. Based on a model that has

seen success in Northumberland County, the mentors will visit with the business owners once or as many times as needed over a period of time to evaluate the needs of each business and suggest improvements. “Not just one person is helping a business; it’s surrounded by a culture of people, depending on their need,” said UCLG economic development manager Ann Weir, who will act as an adviser to the program. Mike O’Keefe, business development officer of the Grenville Community Futures Development Corporation, and North Grenville economic development coordinator Teri Devine are also on board as advisers.

Accessibility law says taxis can’t overcharge disabled passengers J.P. ANTONACCI

Taxicab passengers with disabilities or mobility issues that require the storage and transport of aids or assistive devices cannot be charged a higher fare than able-bodied passengers, according to provincial accessibility legislation discussed at last week’s Committee of the Whole meeting in North Grenville. According to the Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation (IASR), the municipality cannot compel taxi companies to have an accessible cab in its fleet, but as of July 1 of this year, any company charging a higher fee to passengers using assistive devices can be found in violation of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act. In addition, vehicle registration and identification information must be displayed on the rear bumper of all taxis as of January 2012, and that information must be available in an accessible format to customers. It is up to taxi companies to make these changes, and the municipality will have to update its

taxi bylaw to reflect this new reality, said CAO Andy Brown. Only one company, Kemptville Taxi, is currently licensed to operate in North Grenville, and none of its vehicles are accessible, Brown said. The existence of North Grenville Accessible Transportation, which offers rides to people with mobility issues and special needs, helps offset the need for an accessible taxi, council noted. The taxicab issue is just one of many accessibility considerations all Ontario municipalities will have to address as the provincial IASR is phased in over the coming years. By January, North Grenville must also ensure that emergency plans and public safety information is provided in accessible formats, something Brown said is accounted for in the municipality’s emergency management plan. Between 2013 and 2021, the municipality will need to ensure that accessible standards are met over numerous categories, from employment standards and recruitment to libraries, information kiosks, customer service and website content.

Getting best bang for the buck drives policing survey The North Grenville community has told its police services board what kind of police coverage it would like to have. The North Grenvile Police Services Board (NGPSB) sent out a survey in October asking residents to give them direction about the kind of police services people wanted. The results are in. While the results of the survey have been tabulated and have been looked at by the NGPSB, a definitive interpretation of what they could mean has yet to be made. Bruce Harrison, the chair of the NGPSB, said that the board would be holding a press conference as soon as they finished analyzing the survey data. “We made this decision to reach out to the community,” explained Harrison. There were around 5,5000 surveys given out and more than 300 residents responded. The survey gave residents an opportunity to tell the board what issues and priorities they are interested in.

“I am pleased to see that 96 per cent of our population feel safe in North Grenville,” said Harrison. He mentioned that the percentage of people who felt safe almost mirrored the same percentage of residents who gave the O.P.P. a good approval rating on the O.P.P.’s satisfaction survey. “The results of the survey will form the cornerstone of the new business plan,” said Harrison, adding that this will be the first time the municipality will have a made in North Grenville business plan. Every five years, the Ontario Provincial Police creates a business plan that addresses the needs and expectations of the various communities that have O.P.P. contracts. Each year of the plan, the Leeds and Grenville O.P.P. make their own business plan designed to relate to the particular needs of Leeds and Grenville. The North Grenville police contract comes in at $2.7 million a year. The current policing contract ends in 2013 and a new one will have to be negotiated. Harrison said that the

O.P.P. have implied that policing costs have gone up over the life of the current contract. The survey is an attempt to fine tune the community’s expectations about where and how their policing dollars will be spent. Once analyzed, the survey results will be presented by the NGPSB to the O.P.P. when it is time for the police to complete their own business plan. That same information will be used to help the O.P.P. allocate their policing dollars in the upcoming new contract with North Grenville. The survey, which included a hard copy version as well as an online option, asked residents to select seven priority issues from a list of 13. The survey allowed for various age groups and the various demographics of the North Grenville community. A look at the raw data collected indicated that theft and burglaries topped the list of concerns for area residents. Next up was impaired driving, then violent crimes and domestic assaults, buying and selling

drugs, traffic enforcement and vandalism, and finally youth crime, bullying and underage drinking. The survey suggested that these were the seven areas where policing dollars should be going. When asked to place a value on the various programs already in place, the survey indicated that impaired driving ranked as the single most important program followed by crime prevention, Crime Stoppers, the elementary and high school liaison officer, foot patrols in urban areas and programs for seniors. The percentage of interest in the selected issues was: Theft and burglaries 82 per cent; violent crime and domestic assaults 77 per cent; impaired driving 79 per cent; traffic enforcement and drug programs each at 64 per cent; vandalism 60 per cent; and youth crime 51 per cent.

Game over as thieves steal hockey net STAFF Hockey season on D’Arcy’s Way in North Grenville came to an unceremonious halt after a hockey net and road hockey gear was stolen from a driveway sometime on Nov. 17. TWO YOUTH BLAMED FOR SCHOOL VANDALISM Police have identified two youth responsible for damaging a large window at St. Michael Catholic High School in Kemptville. A 12-year-old male from North Grenville and a 17-year-old male from Kemptville are been dealt with under the Youth Criminal Justice Act. LAMPS DIMMED BY THEFT Sometime during the last month, five lampposts were stolen from the rear parking lot of a commercial property at 2895 County Road 43 in Kemptville. The posts are described as black metal stands approximately 25 feet tall and weighing 400 pounds.

Between Jan. 1 and August 30, 38 people have died in 35 fatal crashes in Eastern Ontario, according to O.P.P. Ten deaths involved improper seatbelt use, with six people being ejected. Alcohol was a factor in six collisions. Police urge all drivers to pay attention at all times, use caution, and follow good safety practices, including driving at a responsible speed.

Councillor Terry Butler, a member of the NGPSB, noted that one impression he received from the survey was that people in the community expected each group – whether it Nov 24 - Dec 18 was the police, school or parents – to do their own Professional Live Theatre part. in Morrisburg, “Each group should do Ontario what they do,’ he said.

ANDREA JERMACANS Special to the Advance

Saturday, December 3, 2011

On a roll after a very successful year, Kemptville Players Inc. is already gearing up for its spring performance. Director George Anderson (Jenny’s House of Joy) is slated to present Lafferty’s Wake by Susan Turlish in April, 2012, at Leslie Hall. The play is a set during a rollicking Irish wake held in honour of heavy drinker and gambler Charlie Lafferty at his favourite place – a pub. His widow, daughter, and son-in-law join the parish priest, an innkeeper, and a host of other pub goers to celebrate Charlie’s life in style. The show is a departure from KPI’s usual repertoire because of the audience interaction and boisterous barroom singing in Lafferty’s Wake. “It’s a pretty hilarious show, if you’ve got the right cast,” says Anderson. “Irish wakes are meant to be a good time, rife with all kinds of emotions.” Anderson is already scouting for local talent, noting that men’s roles are often difficult to fill. The play calls for four men, ages 40 to 60 and four women ages 25-50. “You’ll need to put on an Irish accent, but we can help with that. Also, if you can sing in the shower or at a bar, come out and audition. You don’t have to be fabulous, just carry a tune.” Anderson is also seeking an actor of each gender who can strum a few chords on a guitar. “Don’t be shy,” he says. “If you don’t play guitar, that shouldn’t be a deterrent to auditioning. We have a teacher on hand, ready to coach.” Anderson said he’s excited about Lafferty’s Wake given the great success of KPI’s last two plays, Jenny’s House of Joy and The Mousetrap, both of which sold out. KPI president Barb McDerby says it has been a banner year for the previously struggling theatre company, as would-be theatre-goers were having trouble getting tickets for The Mousetrap at the last minute. “About 450 people attended over the weekend of Nov. 4 to 6 and unfortunately some people couldn’t get through,” she explains. “The answering machine was just so full that people couldn’t leave messages. Once our reservations person checked the messages, it would just fill up again.” McDerby urges the public to book their tickets early for Lafferty’s Wake, particularly for the dinner theatre, which is always a popular performance. Look for more information on the website as spring approaches at McDerby says Kemptville also had some measure of success in November with their entry, Trifles by Susan Glaspell, at the Eastern Ontario Drama League. Kemptville received honourable mentions for both their costume designer, Barb Stiles, and one of their actresses, Carey Smith. Auditions for Lafferty’s Wake will be Sunday, Dec. 4 at 1:30 p.m. at the IOOF Hall, 119 Clothier St. E. Callbacks will be Dec. 8. For more information, contact George Anderson at gandmark@ or call 692-3414.

Father forced to grow up in Just Kiddin Theatre’s latest play EMMA JACKSON

Growing up is hard to do. Especially when you’re a stubborn middle-aged man with kids of your own – and you’re played by a 14-year-old barely old enough to understand your fictional plight. Albert Williams is the crotchety main character of King of the Castle, Just Kiddin Theatre’s newest play coming to the Metcalfe town hall from Dec. 8 to 11, when he’ll take a Christmas quest to come to terms with the fact that his parents are moving on with their lives. Thirty kids aged 9 to 14 and split into two hard-working casts will tackle this heady topic with six performances that director and writer Andrie Nel insist are far from depressing dramas. “It sounds like a serious drama, but it’s actually comedy. It’s about Albert’s crotchety way of saying to his parents: ‘How can you do this?’ And we have a fantastic mother character that puts up with him,” Nel explained. Although the setting is Christmas-themed, it’s not a Christ-

mas play with a typical Christmas message. “That’s just a backdrop to a story about a son who is really bothered by the fact that his parents have abandoned the family home and downsized and moved to another community,” Nel said. The premise was partially inspired by Nel’s own experience of her parents moving to a smaller house and giving up the family home. “It’s about that inner conflict that you want what’s best for your parents but you don’t want to let go of the symbols that define your childhood.” In an unprecedented twist, King of the Castle is actually a follow up to Just Kiddin Theatre’s 2008 production Father Figure, which centred around the same family. Kemptville resident Noah McEvoy played Albert then, and four years later is one of two young men playing the Archie Bunker-type character again. “Noah, who has lived four years since then and is extremely committed to theatre, is portraying Albert in a different way. It’s still beautifully done

The young actors portray three generations of Williams men, confirming the adage ‘the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.’ but with more layers,” Nel said. Fourteen-year-old McEvoy’s counterpart is Greely resident Jacob Hope, who is a little younger but who Nel said has tackled the character exceptionally well. Nel said the biggest challenge as a director is helping her cast understand the mature topics she’s trying to portray, but the payoff is huge when they finally get it. “The exciting part is the kids learn to empathize with these situations beyond their immediate focus. They’re forced to consider other

peoples thoughts and try on other people’s situations,” she said. Of course, not every character has to wade through such meaty topics, and there are a number of “kooky characters” to keep the audience laughing throughout the performance. The two groups will alternate performances between Thursday, Dec. 8 and Sunday, Dec. 11. Evening and matinee performances will be held at the Old Town Hall in Metcalfe. Tickets are available at

To increase transparency, the department has developed a records management policy, trained staff on notetaking, and developed a human resources policy with input from municipal staff. Hutt would like to see his officers and the rank and file members take a more active role in policymaking. “Probably one of the biggest things we need to establish – and the department knows this is where I’m going – is we’re going to establish a policy review team, so each year, although I’ll be involved in it, we’ll have our group of firefighters and officers reviewing the policies and coming up with recommendations,” he said. The OFM report called for monthly officer meetings and budgetary input from officers. The Fleet Committee that helped

the chief craft a proposal to council for new vehicles is an example of how this consultation is already taking place. “I do lean on the membership to help with certain programs and policies,” Hutt said. The chief said he has heard positive feedback from members as to the changes. “It engages the officers, it engages the firefighters, and it empowers them. They feel that they’re part of the decisions being made, and that’s so important.” That empowerment will extend to the field, as captains will be trained to take command of an incident, and a post-incident evaluation process will enable the entire team to review calls together and suggest changes. Formal training for members of all ranks will extend to incident command and accountability, as well as implementing a departmen-

tal code of conduct to address what the OFM called “disrespectful and intimidating behavior.”

“It engages the officers, it engages the firefighters, and it empowers them. They feel that they’re part of the decisions being made, and that’s so important.” Fire Chief Paul Hutt The OFM report rated fire prevention an “urgent” need. Hutt is pleased with the current fire prevention plan, which was crafted by the department and municipal staff prior to his arrival, but says it is “paramount” to keep it up to date.

“I think as we grow, (the plan) has to be an ongoing document, and it has to be reviewed every year or so,” he said. For instance, more work is needed to educate senior citizens about fire safety. “After our fire prevention week, we noted that there was a lack in reaching out to some of our senior citizens. So that tells me that we need to focus on that,” he said. Another area of concern was fire investigation. Hutt has the training to take the lead on this portfolio for the moment, but looking longer term, more firefighters will specialize in fire investigation, beyond the basic level training they have now all received. Hutt stressed that the department has always investigated fires, but additional training will teach firefighters to gather, photograph and document the kind of forensic evidence that will prove the cause of a

fire beyond a reasonable doubt. One recommendation Hutt disagrees with is that KFD should cease fundraising operations and depend solely on funding from the municipality. He sees fundraising as another way to connect with the community, and proposed targeted efforts such as an upcoming spring campaign involving local ATV clubs to raise money for an ATV and trailer for the department. The Fire Marshal’s office wanted to see clear and effective leadership in the department, and Hutt has taken the lead in implementing many of these changes over the next few years. While he said he is ultimately accountable, he will also delegate responsibility and train others to take the lead. “There is a lot of work that has been done, and there’s still a lot we need to achieve,” he said.


The Kemptville Fire Department (KFD) can borrow Merrickville’s ladder truck on a per request basis under an agreement struck between the two departments. Renting the ladder will cost North Grenville $410 for the first hour and $210 for each subsequent half hour. The Merrickville Fire Department can refuse to lend the ladder truck to KFD if it is undergoing repair or is needed elsewhere in Merrickville-Wolford. KFD considered forging a ladder agreement with Ottawa and Prescott fire departments, but the proximity, cost and availability of Merrickville’s ladder made it the best choice to fulfill the department’s short-term needs, said Fire Chief Paul Hutt. Councillors unanimously approved the department’s request. This partnership is considered a temporary solution for KFD because the eagerly awaited quint – the multi-purpose vehicle that will soon replace pumper No. 1 – will handle calls that currently require the ladder apparatus.

Kars couple visits South Mountain soldier’s graveside in England JOSEPH MORIN

A Kars couple, Kam and Valerie Adliff, made their Remembrance Day an especially poignant one after visiting the resting place of a 27-year-old Flying Officer from South Mountain, John Armstrong Johnston. Armstrong was killed in October of 1944 and is buried in England. He is one of the five soldiers from South Mountain featured in a project by residents there called the Fallen Five. Originally photos of each soldier had hung in the Odd Fellows Hall in South Mountain. The pictures of Charles Gates, John Armstrong Johnston, Allen Clark, Bruce Olgivie and Robert Armstrong and were lost over time. Last year the photographs were found and placed in the South Mountain Public Library. This past November, the Adiffs were headed for a trip to England, where Valerie was born. After reading of the Fallen Five they decided to find the grave of Armstrong. Valerie’s brother Bob and his wife Marion live in Chester. According to the research by the Fallen Five committee, Armstrong’s grave was listed as being in Chester. “During our visit, I showed them the newspaper article published in June. I asked them for their assistance in seeking out the grave of this soldier,” he said. Research in England led the couple to a suburb of Chester in a cemetery called Blacon Cemetery.

Open this Sunday

“On Oct. 6 we ventured out to Blacon Cemetery, and after only a few minutes, we found his final resting spot,” said Kam Adliff. “He rests in a peaceful place, in a quiet area with many other soldiers from a few other countries, Poland, Australia and Jamaica. The others in the cemetery are of similar age; the youngest we saw was 18,” said Adliff.

“He will not be forgotten for the great sacrifice he made to give everyone else a better life.” Valerie’s father, Robert Archibald, was a Canadian from Saskatoon who during the Second World War joined the Royal Canadian Air Force and was stationed in England. He was a squadron leader, flying a Spitfire, and towards the end of the war did aerial photography to help locate V2 rocket sites. He remained in England after the war and passed away in 1988. Finding Johnston’s grave was meaningful for the couple. “The sadness of it is the fact that John Armstrong Johnston never got to do what we all take for granted: enjoy the freedom of every facet of life. And now that we know where he is resting, he will be visited by us every trip we make to Chester,” said Adliff. “He will not be forgotten for the great sacrifice Kam Adliff at John Armstrong Johnston’s grave. he made to give everyone else a better life.”

Craers Wanted for Christmas Cra Show


Understanding children’s mental health and wellness is a challenge at the best of times. The South Branch School Council has arranged for a special Parent University on Thursday, Dec. 8 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the school. The topic is mental wellness and suicide prevention. Chair of the South Branch School Council Michelle VandenBosch said, “The council was thinking it was a topical issue at the moment.” The council has moved the Parent University from a Saturday afternoon to a weekday evening in the hopes of increasing attendance. MaryLou Macfarlane, program director for Fawg Forest Therapeutic Farm and Counseling Services in South Mountain, will be giving a presentation. Joining her is Robin Skinner, an epidemiologist specializing in injury research. With nature as a backdrop, Macfarlane uses her horses, cats, dogs, chickens and exotic birds to help build her rapport with her clients. By teaching adolescents about the care, personalities and interactions of the animals with their environment, she is able to create an awareness in the youth about themselves, their relationships and their struggles.

MaryLou Macfarlane and her friend Bobby. cil, heard about the kind of work Macfarlane was doing at her farm. “We wanted to touch base about mental health,’ she said. “I think people are more interested in mental wellness. You have to be proactive.” “I think schools and the community have to embrace the concept of prevention,” said Macfarlane. “We should not be focusing on the end tragedy” but look at mental health in a positive way and involve parents, families and schools, she said. She feels it is time to bring the issue of mental illness out in the open in a positive way. “If we viewed mental health just like a yearly flu shot, we would be better off,” she said. Macfarlane is a clinical professional registered

nurse with 28 year track record working with mental health issues. She is the director of Patient Care Services with the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. In her search for different options for her patients she has broadened the kind of tools used in mental health counseling to include her unique and innovative methods to mental health counseling such as her therapeutic farm. In 2000, she founded the farm specializing in animal facilitated therapy. Some of the topics she will be covering at the Parent University are: Why mental health is so important for parents, schools and communities and what parents and schools can do to support good mental health. She will explain the different ap-

proaches to mental wellness available to parents and teachers and how to ensure that you are dealing with the most appropriate mental health practitioner for your particular issues. Early on in her career she realized there were challenges and limitations to working with younger people in hospital and clinical office settings. Her search for more effective ways to connect with her patients led her to consider changing the setting she was helping them in. Macfarlane was encouraged to use horses in her work with adolescents and that led her to create Fawg Forest. She came up with a novel approach that was recognized by the Canadian Mental Health Association in 2007 with the award for innovative and effective mental health programming. The parents of young people who have been referred to the therapeutic farm setting have had positive experiences. One parent said, “I initially brought my daughter to Fawg Forest in her teens. The natural setting, the animals, MaryLou’s safe and nurturing style made her feel comfortable to open up and discuss things she was dealing with.” Another parent said, “Fawg Forest Therapeutic Service has provided a warm and supportive environment for two of my daughters dealing with mental health issues. This service has been extremely helpful in two ways. Firstly, it provided a sanctuary; a wonderful place to spend time away from the stresses of life. Secondly, it has provided a perfect backdrop for therapy to take place. Here the girls are surrounded by nature and involved with the animals they love. They are able to connect with their therapist without feeling like a patient, as they did in traditional therapy. Over time at Fawg Forest they have learned strategies to help them cope with life, and with the help of the horses they have steadily built self confidence!” For more information about Fawg Forest Therapeutic Farm, go to www.

73’s determined to break losing trend BRIAN WILSON Special to the Advance

The 73’s were right back in the lion’s cage on Thursday, Nov.24. Kemptville travelled back to Cornwall for another shot at the Colts. Cornwall is challenging for top spot in the Robinson Division in what is now a three-way battle between the Colts, Braves and Canadians. Unfortunately, they fared no better this week than they did last week. In a tightly fought first period, the Colts only managed to score once to hold a 1-0 lead after the first. However, the floodgates opened in the second and Cornwall scored four times. They added three more in the third and defeated the 73’s 8-0. The trio of Ammirato, Borkowski and Tylor Spink accounted for nine points in the game. The next night, Kemptville faced the Ottawa Junior Senators, who are presently in second place in the Yzerman Division. The 73’s jumped out to an early lead when Steve Genier notched his second of the season from Josh Pitt and Mason Nowak, just 38 seconds after the opening face off. Ottawa got that one back but Cedric Lacroix scored to restore Kemptville’s one goal lead. Jesse Ferras and Eric Malloy set up the goal. In the second period, both teams scored twice. Blaine Byron did the damage for the 73’s with his fourth and fifth of the year. Matt Rosebrook, Ben Hutton, Malloy and Genier assisted on the goals. Holding a 4-3 lead going into the third, defensive lapses proved to be their undoing in this game. The Sens scored twice in a two and a half minute span to take a 5-4 lead and then added an insurance goal later in the period. With Kemptville pressing during the last minute of the game, Ottawa added an empty net goal with forty seconds left, to walk away with a 7-4 victory. Liam Burtt picked up three assists for Ottawa. Blaine Byron was named the game’s second star. Sunday afternoon had the Smiths Falls Bears come to town for Kemptville’s “Movember” game. The CCHL’s decision to support “Movember” and its beneficiary Prostate Cancer Canada had the teams participating in fund raising. For this game five dollars from each ticket sold was donated to the movement. Also, the 73’s ran a silent auction. Sponsors donating for this worthy cause were, Canadian Tire, Shaw, Wal-Mart, Staples,

Marlin Travel, KBC and the 73’s. The pre-game ceremonies featured a presentation to Dave Richardson for his selection as Kemptville 73’s volunteer of the year from last season from 73’s owner, Paul Brenton. Dave, who is a cancer survivor, also did a ceremonial puck with the Captains from both teams.
