News – Kemptville College will welcome new students on campus for the fall semester thanks to a one-time, stopgap $2 million injection from the provincial government. Brad Duguid, Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities, was at the local campus Tuesday morning to announce the influx of funding, which will enable the University of Guelph’s Kemptville Campus to offer 10 agriculture-related trade programs including agriculture equipment technician, heavy duty equipment technician, truck and coach technician, welding, horticultural technician and dairy herdsperson. Some of the 10 programs are new, Duguid said, while others are being brought back after they were cancelled when the University of Guelph announced the closure of the campus March 12. In addition to regular apprenticeship training, Duguid said, the campus will continue to offer pre-apprenticeship programs as well as the co-op diploma apprenticeship program, which allows participants to earn a college diploma while completing in-class apprenticeship training. The campus will not accept new students in the campus’ associate diploma programs in agriculture, equine care and food science, but students already enrolled in these programs will be able to complete their diplomas in Kemptville during the 20142015 academic year, Duguid said. Kemptville Campus, the minister said, is not a typical postsecondary institution. “It’s history runs deep, it’s important to the agriculture, agrifood sector in Eastern Ontario.” In an unusual move, Duguid made his announcement with both Grant Crack, Liberal MPP for Glengarry and Prescott-Russell and Steve Clark, Conserva-

tive MPP for Leeds-Grenville by his side. Duguid offered Clark the lectern following his announcement, where the MPP thanked the community for keeping up the fight to save Kemptville Campus. “A comment that (Duguid) made to Robert Jelly, who chaired the College Royal, when he hand-delivered some letters from some students, the minister said, ‘Everything means something to us on this file,’” Clark said. “So, all those folks that wrote letters, that signed the online petition, signed the paper petition, contacted MPPs right across the province of all political stripe, that really made a difference in this $2 million announcement today.” Accepting new students on campus in the fall is a step in the right direction, Clark said, as he once worried the campus would be non-existent come fall. “This announcement does allow us a start. Obviously, I’ve asked for more time and more money and more students and more agricultural programs,” Clark said. “That’s what I want, but I know deep down that even though some of the students that we wanted to come back will not be, I think that some of the announcements and some of the programs that will be here will allow the task for and allow the facilitator that you’re going to appoint the opportunity to really grow this campus.” Duguid said he expects the province will appoint a provincial facilitator in the coming week, who will work toward a long-term solution over the next 12 months. For now, Duguid said, the short-term fix will ultimately help achieve a long-term vision. “Today, together, we’re now in a position to say there’s not only a future for Kemptville Campus, I’m also confident to declare today that the future for Kemptville Campus will be bright, and its best days are once again ahead.”

Community – Here comes Carleton Place’s inaugural bridal show. Whether it’s contracting a photographer, selecting a musician or booking a caterer, the Just Say Yes! Bridal Show is definitely the place to be on Sunday, May 4. With everything under one roof, it’s a one-stop show for brides, grooms and exhibitors, Shannon O’Neill said. Shannon, husband Patrick O’Neill and Alex Munro are co-organizers of the event, which will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Tania & Rick’s

Dance Studio, located at 55 Lansdowne Ave. Admission is free. More than 30 local vendors and businesses will provide a diverse selection of products and services to choose from. “It was very important for us to go with local vendors,� Shannon said, “and they represent every industry.� Participating vendors include At The Altar Wedding Photography (Michael Gauthier), Main Event Entertainment, The Floral Boutique, I Do Cakes (Lorrie Gauthier), Rental Village Carleton Place, Cody Party Carleton Place and Ballygiblin’s Restaurant & Pub, just

Learn how to build a heritage fence at Algonquin College Community – Scott Dobson has an accomplished skill and his work can be spotted for miles across the county’s farmland – he builds heritage rail fences. While it’s widely popular across the region, heritage fencing requires a knowledge that has dwindled over the years. You now have the opportunity to use Dobson’s expertise and gain your own heritage fence-building knowledge as Dobson will teach a workshop at the Algonquin College Perth Campus on June 7. The one-day session will give you the fundamental knowledge and skills to build an unusual type of rail fence known as a sheep fence or Indian fence - one of Dobson’s signature fences. Dobson will be accompanied by Eugene Fitch – a local old-timer with

stories to tell, and a book about fences under his belt. This is a hands-on workshop. Participants will take part in an in-class workshop before constructing a five-rail fence on the campus site. Experience is not necessary, but you’ll need to bring gloves, lunch, a camera, and a fencing tool (if you have one, but it is not necessary). Registration is now open for the workshop. You can call the campus at 613-2672859 ext. 2691 or pop by the campus in person at 7 Craig St. in Perth. To learn more about the heritage fencing course, as well as the other Continuing Education courses on offer this spring at the Algonquin College Perth Campus, please visit its website at algonquincollege.com/perth.

Each bride will receive a ballot for a chance to win some great door prizes, and score extra discounts from some of the vendors who will be at the show. “If brides register in advance for the event they receive five ballots,� Shannon said.

Munro and wife Tania purchased their dance studio’s new building, the former LCBO property, three years ago. Together they are working to grow their business, which boasts the largest dance floor of all studios in the

cipal Suzanne Morrison, president of the Ontario Principals’ Council District 28. “His legacy will live on for a long time,” added vice-chair Jeff McMillan. “The contribution he has made to this board and to the students of Upper Canada is immeasurable.” Pietersma’s final focus will be to ensure that a zero-tolerance policy for drug and alcohol use by students at school events is enforced by the system. At Pietersma’s urging, the board passed a resolution that will create a new strategic plan charter to address the issue focus-

ing on student-driven solutions. It will encourage the expansion and reactivation of Ontario Students Against Impaired Driving chapters in our high schools. Principals will also ensure strict enforcement of current policies and procedures banning use of drugs and alcohol at proms and other events to avoid the tragedies that can result from impaired driving. “We must have the courage to keep our students safe,” said Pietersma. “They’re too important not to.” Submitted by the Upper Canada District School Board.

equal access to French immersion and core French programming throughout the board. Pietersma instituted the Accountability Framework, a system that ensures goals and accomplishments of the CREW Strategic Plan are meeting the objectives set by trustees. He was also a champion of expanded social media and the use of iPads, smart phones, and other personal devices in the classroom. He led the board through a difficult challenge at the Ontario Labour Relations Board (OLRB) last school year, after the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO) pressured members to withhold support for extracurricular activities following the passage of Bill 115, which withdrew the ability of ETFO members to strike. In April 2013, the OLRB ruled in favor of the UCDSB. The precedent-setting decision confirmed that where a collective agreement exists, counseling the withdrawal of voluntary activities is considered an illegal strike and is not permitted. The victory was not without its price, as teachers and their union vehemently resisted the challenge. “But when we saw that the decisions made by ETFO were affecting our students we could not stand idly by,” said Pietersma. “We had to take action. I think it was worth it.” Director David Thomas said such courage in the face of strong resistance has been a hallmark of Pietersma’s tenure. “Greg will always be recognized for his character, particularly his ability to precisely take an issue and apply it in the context of how it will impact students positively or negatively,” said Thomas. “Greg never faltered from the challenge of doing the right thing for students in spite of the fact it might have impacted him personally. The hallmark of his tenure is a deep sense of social justice.” Principals and fellow trustees say they will also miss Pietersma. “The principals definitely appreciated his commitment to improved student learning in our board and his support for arts programming, quality daily physical education and professional learning within our system,” said prin-

News – A man who focused the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) on student achievement, fought to maintain local control of decisions, and brought the board into the age of social media is stepping down. Chair Greg Pietersma announced April 14 he will not run in the fall of 2014 as school trustee for Dundas County. After spending a decade in school politics, the father of four wants to refocus his efforts on his business, and other new projects. “I view the job of trustee and chair as a significant commitment,” said Pietersma, owner of Pietersma Tinworks near Chesterville. “There is no schedule really because things happen and you have to constantly change your day and reflect on solving problems because public education is so important. There are other projects I want to pursue and in order to be fair to the job of trustee I want to step back and let someone else pick up the baton.” “One of the things that galvanized my decision is that my son Sam has joined my company and I want to take the time needed to help develop his skills and provide him the mentorship he needs going forward,” he added. During his tenure as trustee, vice-chair and chair he has overseen significant changes in the board that have improved student learning. He oversaw the Building 2020 process which realigned our school structure, closing smaller schools and amalgamating them, and building new facilities so that children could enjoy improved programing, as well as expanded social and extracurricular activities. “It was one of the hardest things I ever had to do,” Pietersma said about Building 2020. “When I was first elected I never thought I would be championing closing schools. But I became aware of the challenges of running small schools – that they couldn’t offer our students rich experiences with such small numbers in the classroom. We had to put our students first.” The process also brought about the successful Grades 7-12 model for our secondary schools, and ensured that every family has

Around 1 to 2 a.m., Relay participants have been walking for hours and may begin to feel tired and the desire to take a break or go home. This represents the time when a cancer patient starts treatment. It is at this time that many patients become exhausted, some sick, not wanting to go on, possibly wanting to give up.

With more than 1,000 shows under his belt the affable drummer and vocalist has no intention of quitting the music business. “I’m the weak link in the band,” Armitage says modestly. “But I just love to play. We are doing 20-25 events a year these days. “I tell the guys (band members) that we will keep playing until they (public) stop calling,” Armitage chuckles. “I work and I play music – that’s my life. “When I hear the cheering and shouting and watch the people dancing it is all worth it.” The Mick Armitage Band will be headliners at the ‘Spring Fling 2014 Charity Concert’ scheduled for Irish Hills Golf Club near Carp on Saturday, April 26. The venture begins at 8 p.m. and tickets are $25 apiece. The event, presented by Wanda Clark, broker for Keller Williams VIP Realty, will assist the ongoing battle against the growing problem presented by Type 1 Diabetes. Clark says all proceeds of the Carp benefit will go to assist the Torontobased Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation of Canada (JDRF). The organization also has an eastern Ontario office on Merivale Road in Ottawa. The motto of JDRF is, “Improving Lives, Curing Type 1 Diabetes.” Armitage says he and his band are pleased to be involved in such a worthwhile endeavour. “Wanda (Clark) is the chief organizer and she puts so much effort into this. Last year we raised more than $6,000.

“Diabetes can be such a devastating disease. We hope this event will sell out as we work to assist JDRF,” he states. Armitage says tables of 10 are available for April 26. To purchase individual tickets or tables telephone Armitage at 613-226-9178 or Clark at 613223-3310. The Mick Armitage Band will be joined by three other well-known Ottawa Valley and West Quebec entertainers. Vocalist Gail Gavan and the father-daughter team of Louis and Kaitlyn Schryer are special guests for the occasion. The always popular Gavan is a member of the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame. Louis Schryer is a worldclass fiddler. His daughter Kaitlyn is an accomplished step dancer. “Louis is the cream of the crop,” Armitage says enthusiastically. “And Kaitlyn was just nine years old when she started dancing at shows we were playing.” This month’s show is a warm-up for a busy summer season for Armitage and his band including an appearance at the Merrickville Car Show in July. Long history The nucleus of the current Mick Armitage Band has been performing together since 1997. But Armitage’s band days date back to 1983 when he helped form the Arnprior-based group ‘Racoons on Ice’. They played together for 14 years, performing across Eastern Ontario and West Quebec. However, it is with the group that bears his name that Armitage has found his greatest success! They have performed nationally and internationally. “We’ve played on both coasts, we’ve

performed in Mexico six times and in 2006 we did a tour of Ireland,” he outlines. The band has been off the bar and night club circuit for years. “We book mainly with private clients and organizations. We play at fundraisers, like the one at Irish Hills Golf Club this month. We do shows of every kind including fairs, festivals and private parties,” Armitage explains. “Our business is almost all referrals – word of mouth. “I’ve definitely been around a long time. I know that because I am now playing at the weddings of the kids of the same people I played for (wedding parties) over 20 years ago.” He jokes his band is “mainly a warm weather act. “We don’t do many shows in the winter. Right now we’re doing about 25 shows in nine months. That works out to about 2.8 a month,” he laughs. He credits his four fellow band members with the group’s success. “We know over 500 songs, 90 per cent of which is classic rock. We’re a ‘Boomers’ band now.” Besides Armitage on drums and vocals the other members of the band are vocalist/bass player Grant Tomkinson from Westmeath, Stittsville’s Bruce Baker on saxophone and vocals and Al Bragg on the pedal steel. Bragg “The Reverend” also provides additional vocal support. Armitage calls his longtime bandmate (Bragg) “the best pedal steel player in Canada.” Like Gavan, Bragg is also a member of the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame. The newest member of the band is lead guitarist Pete Foret. The Aylmer, Quebec native has more than 30 years’ experience as an arranger, musician, composer and band leader. He has

performed with Alanis Morrisette, Martha Reeves and other world-class acts. Foret replaces long-time guitarist/vocalist Al Tambay. “Pete subbed for Al. So when Al had to leave the band due to other commitments Pete came on as the regular. We are fortunate to have him in the band. “Basically we switched one for the other. Al now subs for Pete. It works,” Armitage laughs. A native of Shawville, Quebec Armitage started playing music in his youth and soon his focus became the drums. “I grew up during the Rock and Roll era in the 1960s. That was my influence,” he recalls. His late mother Mary (Spearman) was a native of Stittsville. His father, Dr. Roly Armitage, is a highly respected veterinarian and horse breeder who is known across Eastern Ontario and West Quebec. Armitage Sr. is now 89 and living in Dunrobin in the West Carleton section of rural, west Ottawa. “Dad is still a going concern.” Last May the elder Armitage was among Canadian veterans who attended armistice ceremonies in Holland. A young Roly Armitage served with the Canadian Army during the liberation of western Europe in

1944 and early 1945, including the offensive which freed The Netherlands from nearly five years of Nazi occupation. “He was in the artillery. I am very proud of my Dad. He’s an amazing man,” his proud son observes. Armitage Jr. is a full-time civilian employee of the Department of National Defence and he resides in Ottawa. Busy year The Mick Armitage Band has another very busy year ahead. On Saturday, June 21 they will perform at a private, corporate party planned for the newly renamed Canadian Museum of History (formerly Canadian Museum of Civilization) in Gatineau, Quebec. Sunday, July 13 they will make a return engagement as part of the entertainment at the annual Merrickville Car Show which features live music from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The car show, the largest event of its kind in Canada, is located at the Blockhouse beside the Rideau Canal in historic Merrickville, southwest of Ottawa. On Thursday, July 17 the Mick Armitage Band makes yet another appearance as part of the City of Ottawa’s summer ‘Concerts in the Park Series.’ The classic rock concert will be staged at Fitzroy Provincial

Park in Fitzroy Harbour from 7-8:30 p.m. Admission is free and a barbecue will be held on site sponsored by the West Carleton Youth Committee. Saturday, July 19 they will be part of the entertainment at the Canadian Shark Championship at Britannia Yacht Club in Ottawa. Weddings and family reunions are also on the band’s list this summer. But on Sunday Aug. 31 the band returns to the Shawville Fair for a 16th consecutive year. They will perform from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. On the afternoon of Saturday, Sept. 27 they will be part of the live musical entertainment at the annual Carp Fair. Visit the website www.carpfair.ca for the schedule and times. They already have a Christmas party booked in December and next Feb. 8 the band will perform at Dr. Roly Armitage’s 90th birthday party which is scheduled for the Constance Bay Legion Hall. Asked for the secret to their success Armitage Jr. responds, “As Hans Christian Andersen (Danish author and poet) once said ‘Where words fail, music speaks.’” For complete information on the Mick Armitage Band and their schedule for this year and early 2015 visit the website: www.mickarmitageband.com.

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

Consider becoming organ, tissue donor DEAR EDITOR: April 20 to 27 is national Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness Week Are you registered as an organ and tissue donor? More than 95 per cent of Ontarians agree that organ donation is a good thing, yet only 25 per cent of Ontarians are registered as donors. Perth is 31 per cent, Smiths Falls is 26 per cent and Carleton Place, 25 per cent. Are you on record as a donor? You need to register even if you signed a donor card. A signed donor card is not recorded in the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care’s database and may not be available when needed. Go to www.beadonor. ca and with your health card number you can find out if you are on the data base, and if not you can be registered in a few minutes. You can also register at any ServiceOntario Centre. People over 50 mistakenly think they’re too old to be organ donors even though they are most likely to need transplants (In 2012, more than 60 per cent of recipients of deceased persons organs were over 50). In Ontario in 2011-2012, 47 per cent of the 222 people who gave the gift of life through organ donation after death were 50 or older, and 11 per cent were 70+.

More hospitals are moving to the “routine notification” program. This requires staff in the emergency departments and critical care units to report every death or impending death so that The Trillium Gift of Life Network can identify potential donors and includes all deaths of patients 79 years of age or younger on all floors of the hospital. Every donor has the potential to save up to eight lives and enhance the lives of up to 75 others through tissue donation. Organs include heart, lungs, liver, pancreas, kidneys and small bowel. The most common types of tissue transplanted are corneas, skin, bone, cardiovascular tissue (heart valves and veins) and connective tissue (tendons, ligaments). By talking it over with your family you will make it easier for your loved ones to consent to organ and tissue donation on your behalf. Be sure you visit www.giftoflife.on.ca and www.beadonor.ca for more information. One person dies every three days waiting for an organ. It doesn’t have to be this way. Recycle yourself – be a donor.

COMMENTARY Take caution with social media Editorial – Social media can be a wonderful thing – connecting people to one another in many different ways and for many different reasons. From Facebook to Twitter and pinterest there are many sites to choose from. Recently, police issued a warning after receiving several complaints from women in the area. The women have reported being contacted by a male over Facebook with the “pretext of selling something and then insisting on being added as a friend.” This male has then attempted to meet with the females, or made remarks deemed as inappropriate over Facebook. This has prompted the police to remind the community to follow safe rules of practice when online and on social media sites. They advise to “Not add persons as friends on Facebook unless you are completely comfortable with that individual.” They also point out that adding people on to your account also allows them to potentially see the profile pages of your friends. Double checking security settings on the account is something police also remind facebook users to put on their immediate to-do list. If for some reason an account holder has added someone by mistake, or find they are uncomfortable with that person, the police advise to block them immediately. In the cases mentioned above, the local police report, “A person of interest has been identified” and investigations are continuing. Always remember to take caution when going online. If you are unsure or uncomfortable don’t “Friend” them. When using the internet one can never be absolutely certain with whom one is dealing.

Mary learns there’s no such thing as a family pet on the farm Lifestyle – It was a wet and long spring that year. And the winter coldness was yet to fade away to warmer days, leaving a chill in the air that seemed to penetrate our very bones. But it was lambing time, and the joy of welcoming those tiny little bodies of wool out on the farm in Northcote, took away the greyness of the season, and filled my heart with unspeakable joy. Although I never wanted to see the actual births, it wasn’t long after the deliveries that I was in the barn, leaning on the board rail of the lambing pen, watching the mothers nudge their babies and they, with wobbly legs trying, to find firm footing. That year Father was pleased with the number of lambs born in the barn, and with two or three ewes yet to birth, everything pointed to a bit of relief from the cares of the Depression. There would be wool and meat to market, easing the constant worries of survival when poverty was

all around us. When the very last ewe delivered, two tiny bodies emerged, but alas, one was as black as ink. Father who prided himself on the white wool he took to market, shook his head, and then said, “don’t think its going to make it anyway...it’s just a little runt of a thing, I doubt if it will see the end of the day. At that very moment I claimed the little black lamb for my very own. I called it Lambie most of the time, but sometimes, called it Blackie. I asked Father if I could look after it, and from then on, the little lamb and I were inseparable. I fed it milk from a little bottle belonging to one of my dolls, and to my utter joy, not only did it survive that day, and the night, but began to show signs of growing into a healthy and sturdy sheep. I was too young to know that you didn’t raise domestic animals on the farm as pets. They would eventually end up at the marVice President & Regional Publisher Mike Mount mmount@perfprint.ca 613-283-3182, ext. 104

ket, or in the smoke house. Or, more than likely, I just put the thought out of my mind. Lambie and I would grow old together. And it grew, and only when I was at school or in the house, or in bed, were we apart. It followed me around the barnyard, and while it was still tiny, I carried it in my arms as if it were a little puppy. And I watched in wonder, as Lambie grew. I even hated to go off to school and leave Lambie behind.

said. “It’s a full grown sheep.” As if that made a whit of difference about how I felt about Lambie. It would always be a baby sheep as far as I was concerned. I remember the day everything changed. It was a cold and wet late spring day. I wondered if summer would ever come. We had to wear our rubber raincoats to the Northcote school, and rubber boots and carry our shoes with our books and lunch. As we neared the house after school, I could see that Mother even had the lamps lit, and for once I didn’t go to the barn, but stayed in the cozy kitchen. And then it was suppertime, and I still hadn’t gone to the barn to check on Lambie, sure that it would be as warm as toast on a mound of hay with all the other sheep. Our supper was ample as usual, and just as I was tucking into my bowl of apple crisp, Emerson, who had been unusually quiet all through ADVERTISING SALES: ADVERTISING SALES CO-ORDINATOR Andrea McMurtry SALES: Cheryl Johnston, Sharon Sinfield, Kathy Perreault, Kevin Hoover, Jamie Rae-Gomes Email: emcsales@perfprint.ca Fax: 613-283-9988 THE DEADLINE FOR DISPLAY ADVERTISING IS MONDAY 4:30 PM

the meal, asked me if I enjoyed my meal. Which was unusual for Emerson, because he was usually only interested in his own stomach. I assured him I did. “Well, you just ate Lambie,” he said. I looked around the table. No one raised their eyes. Mother busied herself at the stove, and Father reached over and patted my hand, and told me again that we couldn’t raise farm animals as pets. Nausea swept over me like a cold wet blanket, and I ran to the privy like someone possessed. My stomach ached from being so sick and I thought I may not survive. Could anyone die from a broken heart, I wondered? The feeling of utter sadness and helplessness stayed with me long after that fateful night had passed. It was the night I vowed never again in my lifetime would I ever eat a mouthful of lamb. • Advertising rates and terms and conditions are according to the rate card in effect at time advertising published. • The advertiser agrees that the publisher shall not be liable for damages arising out of errors in advertisements beyond the amount charged for the space actually occupied by that portion of the advertisement in which the error occurred, whether such error is due to negligence of its servants or otherwise... and there shall be no liability for non-insertion of any advertisement beyond the amount charged for such advertisement. • The advertiser agrees that the copyright of all advertisements prepared by the Publisher be vested in the Publisher and that those advertisements cannot be reproduced without the permission of the Publisher. • The Publisher reserves the right to edit, revise or reject any advertisement.

BarnDoor Productions closes 19th season with Broadway’s second-longest running play Arts – It’s 19 years, almost to the day, since Perth’s BarnDoor Productions (BDP) mounted their very first show, playing in public school gymnasiums in three towns in Lanark County. A lot has changed for Perth’s original community theatre since then: for one thing, the group long ago outgrew school gyms and now own and perform in their own ground-level, barrier-free theatre. What hasn’t changed is the hard work and sweat that BDP’s company of community players put into every production. What they do is “amateur” in the best sense of the word, meaning they do it for the love of the work. What they produce on the stage goes far beyond what the word “amateur” often implies. One of the comments given after BDP’s very first performance in 1995 was “Of course, most of your people are professionals,” when none were. Even at that early time in their history, BDP’s company of players presented work that, in the words of the Perth Courier, “belies their amateur status.” Nineteen seasons later, BDP is opening their 93rd production, taking on one of the most honoured and challenging plays of the last decade, the secondlongest running Broadway play of the 2000s. Yasmina Reza’s God of Carnage, translated by Christopher Hampton, won the French Moliere Award for Best New Comedy, the British Olivier Award for Best New Play and four Tony Awards on Broadway including, of course, Best New Play. For a comedy to win the Tony for Best Play is rare; for the same comedy to also win the Olivier for Best Play is unheard of.

It’s all very civilized…for now. From left: Don Mackay, Karen Bernique, Chris Angel and Kristy Angel are featured in God of Carnage, the final show in BarnDoor Productions’ 19th season, which opens this God of Carnage is, on the surface, a simple story about two sets of parents who meet to discuss their sons’ schoolyard fight like civilized people. We find, by the end, that the veneer of civilization is very thin in places. It’s a play of minute detail and twists of character that presents a very tough challenge for its cast of four. BDP’s company are drawing on ex-

week at the Full Circle Theatre in Perth. Two sets of parents meet to discuss their sons’ schoolyard fight in a civilized manner – until the civilization wears off. The show runs April 25, 26, 27, May 1, 2, 3 and 4.

perience to meet the challenge. Chris and Kristy Angel, who played Nick and Honey in 2012’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, play a very different married couple this time around, with a very different take on married life. Karen Bernique, who helped reveal the Secrets of a Soccer Mom for BDP in 2008, brings a real touch of neurosis and more to her role, while Don Mac-

Kay, whose first stage appearance was in 2012’s The Cricket On The Hearth, Rehearsed, steps into a major role as a self-assured, dominant lawyer, more intent on his clients than his family. In all, the four present a lighted powder keg, ready to explode. When it does, it is with a balanced blend of both comedy and insight – a show with both pratfalls and philosophy.

It takes a deft directorial hand to shape such a play and BDP producing director Janice Jacklin brings over three decades of directorial experience to the task. What Janice brings to a show is a unique skill, the ability to craft a production so that the audience rarely notices that there even was a director, which is a rare gift. God of Carnage is a great show to highlight the kind of work that BDP’s company produces time after time. It is funny, exciting, engrossing and a little bit enlightening and a fitting finale to BDP’s 19th mainstage season. Of course, once the main stage season ends, the summer season begins and BDP is presenting two classics for 2014: the Victorian thriller Gaslight (actually written in 1938) in June and the 1670s comedy The Country Wife, one of the most outrageous plays of the classical repertoire, for July/August. And, once those are done, it’s time for BarnDoor Productions’ 20th anniversary season for 2014/2015, but that’s another story. God of Carnage runs April 25, 26, May 1, 2, 3 at 8 p.m. and April 27 and May 4 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $20 reserved, or $22 at the door. To reserve, simply call 613-267-1884. No credit cards are required, simply bring cash to the performance. All performances are at the barrier-free, ground-level Full Circle Theatre (26 Craig Street, Perth) near Last Duel Park. More information and online ordering is at www.barndoorproductions.ca. Submitted by BarnDoor Productions.

Europe by rail provides countless travel options Lifestyle – After the winter we have had (we were still having it when I wrote this column) it is not surprising summer and vacations are on the minds of so many readers. In the wake of my recent column on Ireland I received

numerous emails from people who A.) Outlined their travel experiences on the Emerald Isle or B.) Offered suggestions on places to visit in Ireland. Thank you for the feedback everyone, it is always great to hear from newspaper readers. Due to

my email volume I don’t get a chance to answer every message. But I do want to emphasize how much I appreciate all of your comments and suggestions on every subject I write about. A Carleton Place friend hailed me on the street one day recently while I was out for my afternoon walk. “I’m not happy with you,” she said. “What have I done this time,” I replied. “You’re going to Ireland,” she said, flashing a wide grin. She was pulling my leg of course. But she still made it clear she is jealous! “I don’t blame you,” I added. “Isn’t it a wonderful country?” “You had better go to Wicklow,” she offered. I assured her the picturesque county, south of Dublin, is on our itinerary this summer. Last week I met another friend downtown. After exchanging pleasantries he informed me he was leaving for Banff by train the next day. He makes an annual pilgrimage by rail to Alberta and the Banff Springs Hotel where, as a student, he worked for the summer in the hotel kitchens. He traveled by rail then too. And he enjoyed the experience so much he now feels his year is incomplete if he doesn’t repeat that journey. I know exactly how he feels. Some travel and life experiences are so wonderful they cry out to be repeated as often as time and money will allow. As I continued my walk I felt this column coming on. For me there is no better way to clear my head and think about what lies ahead than when I am walking. Thinking about our planned Ireland trip and hearing about my friend’s rail excursion to Banff prompts me to extoll the

Reflections JEFF MAGUIRE

virtues of train travel in Europe. I’ve mentioned my love of rail travel in past columns and features in this newspaper. Like my local friend, I never tire of rail excursions. Not only is it a fast, efficient way to get from point A to point B, it is also a great way to see our continent and any other country you choose to visit. There are far too few rail options in Canada and the United States I am sad to report. Unfortunately we are so tied to motor vehicles in North America that passenger train service is sporadic at best and nonexistent in many places. Terrible decision Locally it was so incredibly sad to see the last railway line through our community torn up last summer. It marked the end of an era, but it also means train service is unlikely to be restored here – ever! It would be cost prohibitive to even consider that kind of infrastructure again. So, very short sighted decision making and we will all pay a price for it! In Europe it’s a totally different story. Great Britain for example continues to be utterly dependent on railways. Fewer people own motor vehicles there because trains and buses are so frequent and dependable in most communities. The government there encourages citizens to use mass transit and the railways are alive and well. Newer, better trains are being added all the time and lines are continually upgraded in an effort to provide faster, more efficient service. Clearly

the thinking is the exact opposite of what governments here are considering when it comes to mass transit. Outside of our biggest centres, passenger rail service and/or light rail is not an option for many Canadians including communities across the coverage area of this newspaper. On our first private visit to the United Kingdom in the mid-1990s my wife Kathleen and me began a love affair with train travel which continues to blossom. I clearly remember our first trips in England. We took the high-speed service from King’s Cross Station in London north to York which, interestingly, happens to be home to Britain’s National Railway Museum (it is well worth a visit too). We were there in just over two hours. By road the same trip would have taken more than twice that long. The next day we decided to visit the Yorkshire seaside community of Scarborough which, among many attractions, has interesting castle ruins perched high atop a cliff overlooking the North Sea. On a clear day the views up and down the coast are unlimited. You can see for 30 miles (nearly 50 kilometres). Beneath the castle walls and overlooking the sea is the grave of novelist Anne Brontë, one of the famed Brontë sisters. She died young (age 29) and is interred in St. Mary’s churchyard. We made the short journey to and from Scarborough on a so-called “Sprinter” a two-car train designed for short haul trips. It was a slower and

bumpy ride. But I can still remember the lovely, green Yorkshire countryside we passed through. In places our train scared sheep who were grazing near the tracks. They bolted across the fields, tails high in the air. Since that time we have visited the UK many times and we have traveled the length and breadth of England and Scotland on the train. Flying is faster of course, but you see very little from the air. The train quite literally opens a window to the country you are passing through. There is so much more to see. Apart from being stranded at Stansted Airport (in the County of Essex north of London) on a hot – yes, it can be very hot in England – summer afternoon we have had few negative experiences on the train. Trains are frequent, generally on time and they are an efficient way to get around in England and other European nations where heavy road traffic often leads to total gridlock. We would far rather take the train than drive ourselves. Besides, they drive on the wrong side of the road in the UK! German experience Kathy and I and our friends the LeBlanc’s have also had very good train travel experiences in Germany in recent years. Getting around that country couldn’t be easier on the high speed train service and using the trains is so convenient. If you fly to Frankfurt am Main (simply Frankfurt to most people) there are two railway stations right at the airport. One is for domestic travel, the other for international train service. Traveling south via Mannheim, Karlsruhe and Baden-Baden we reached our destination, Offenburg, so quickly we were amazed. We then picked

up our rental van and proceeded with our tour of the Black Forest and the nearby Alsace Region of east-central France. Our planned visit to Ireland this summer will also include liberal use of the train. It will be our first time using the rail service on the island but given our past European experiences we have no hesitation in booking trains there. We plan a combined train/ coach (bus) tour of the south coast in the Irish Republic and the west coast up to Galway. From there we will return to our base in Dublin before departing, again by rail, for Belfast, the capital of Northern Ireland. The four of us love the train and we are thrilled at the prospect of seeing sections of Ireland from the comfort of a railway carriage. Personally, I would recommend the train to anyone planning a visit to the British Isles, Ireland or Continental Europe. From air hubs such as London, Glasgow, Dublin and Frankfurt you can quickly and efficiently travel virtually anywhere across the European continent. Besides train/coach excursions there are also trips which combine train and sea travel. Your travel agent will be happy to outline the many options available to you. We can hardly wait to depart on our latest European adventure. Using the train will simply make our journeys all the more enjoyable! It’s a lesson we need to apply here in order to reduce our growing dependence on motor vehicles. More public transit is the way to go and you need look no farther than Europe to see how well it could work here.

A detailed look at how car markers rank in terms of recalls Lifestyle – With all the talk of recalls lately (GM’s ignition switches and Toyota’s latest multi-model call-back) it might be helpful to put some perspective on things. A popular US used vehicle website; iseecars. com has compiled a ranking sheet to show how carmakers stack up in terms of the number of recalls per vehicles sold. While this is a strictly US based statistical study, the ratings are fairly accurate for Canadian vehicles. How does your favourite auto manufacturer stack up? See the attached chart, which shows manufacturer recall rate trends. “Hello Brian, This is a question that affects all those who have separate rims for their winter tires. Like many others, I have my winter tires mounted on separate rims, for easy changeover. I also have Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) installed on my winter rims. In my case, both the summer and winter tires run at 32 psi. When I switch to summer tires, does the TPMS have to be recalibrated? If so, this would seem to preclude lots of folks from being able to swap out their own tires and rims.” Paul Most vehicles will adapt to a seasonal change in tire pressure sensors without any special intervention. It usually only takes a 15-minute drive or less for the vehicle’s TPMS receiver to adapt to the different sensors. This depends on the make and model of

the vehicle and the type of sensor used. In my counter experience few drivers ever opt for winter tire pressure sensors, mainly due to cost and their susceptibility to seizing from salt and moisture contamination. Here are a couple of tips (now known as hacks) that are worth trying. If you’re constantly dinging your car door(s) on the walls of your garage, consider slicing a pool noodle in half and fastening it to the walls. This next one sounds crazy, but there is science to back it up. To extend the range on your vehicle’s remote entry fob, hold it against your head while pushing the button. It’s actually the liquid in your skull that makes

Ruth Margaret

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother and grandmother. Ruth passed away peacefully in her sleep on March 30, 2014. Born on April 10, 1925, Ruth grew up in North Bay, Ontario the daughter of William and Tina Rankin who owned the North Bay General Store. After high school she left North Bay and moved to Toronto where she attended and graduated as a Registered Nurse at the Toronto East General Hospital. In the summer of 1946 she met a young man at a resort in the Muskoka’s Allan Somerville and started a relationship that would lead to marriage in 1948. They would start their new life in Hamilton, Ontario and a few years later relocate to Niagara Falls with three sons. Nine years later they would move to Perth, Ontario where Ruth resided with her family for most of her married life. Ruth would later move to Fredricton, NB where she resided for her remaining years. Ruth was a loving and caring woman who had a deep love for her husband and family. She enjoyed her nursing years and worked hard at being a devoted wife, mother, and mentor. She enjoyed her golf, curling, bridge, baking and social gatherings. An avid reader, Ruth always had a book in hand. She was a loyal sports fan, always cheering for her Hamilton Tiger Cats and Toronto Blue Jays! Her various dogs gave her love and comfort, particularly in her later years. Ruth was predeceased by her husband of 45 years Allan, her brother Bill (Sheila) Rankin, and her sister Betty (John) Marchington. Ruth is survived by her sons Grant, Rob (Terri), David (Donna), grandchildren Christopher, Barrett, and Brendan, as well as several nieces and nephews. Ruth will be missed by all. Cremation has taken place and Ruth will return to Perth to be laid to rest with her husband Allan. As requested, a private family memorial will be held at a later date.

IN MEMORIAM

COUTTS, Bill – In loving memory of a dear father, grandfather, who was taken from us April 24, 2011. It’s hard to believe 3 years has passed. We lost a husband, father and grandfather with a heart of gold. How much we miss him can never be told. He shared our troubles And helped us along, If we follow his footsteps, We will never go wrong. What he suffered he told but few, He did not deserve What he went through. Tired and weary he made no fuss But tried so hard to stay with us. We prayed for a miracle all in vain, That God would make you well again. But God knew best, we had to part, It eased your pain but broke our hearts. We cannot bring the old days back When we were all together. The family chain is broken now, But memories live forever. He was a father so very rare, Content in his home and always there, On earth he toiled, in heaven he rests, God bless you, Dad You were one of the best. So if roses grow in heaven God, Please pick a bunch for us. And place them in Dad’s arms, And tell him they’re from us. And when he turns and smiles, Place a kiss upon his cheek, And hold him for awhile. Lois Coutts & family

Forever Young NELSON, Larry Jr. July 18, 1964 - April 18, 2013 – My loving son Larry, who passed away a year ago today. God saw you getting weak and a cure was not to be. So he put his arms around you and whispered, come with me. Sadly missed by Mom, Uncle John and Aunt Kathy

RIP BRENNO May 1, 1951–April 17, 2012 My darling Rip – Dear Dad, We love you and miss you more than words can explain, And our hearts continue to ache every second of every day, But knowing you are watching and taking care of us like always, somehow helps us to breathe and carry on. You are my everything and I can’t wait to hold your hand again. “We Love you more” With all our Love, Lo, Jenna and Steven XO

“WE REMEMBER” Just inside the main entrance of the C.R. Gamble Funeral Home is a book of remembrance. Each day we turn a page in the book. The names of those we have served are inscribed on that date along with the year in which they passed away. It is our way of honouring and remembering a life that was lived. It is also our way of saying “thank you” to the many families who have shown confidence in us since we came to Almonte in 1973. As of July 1, 2014, our “We Remember” publication will only run in

FERGUSON, Arthur – In loving memory of a dear husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather who passed away April 29, 2011.

OBST, Wanda - In memory of a dear, fun and loving sister and aunt, who was taken tragically in a car accident, April 23, 2003. Time passes… our grief remains… You can shed tears that she is gone or you can smile because she has lived. You can close your eyes and pray that she’ll come back, or you can open your eyes and see all she’s left. Your heart can be empty because you cannot see her, or you can be full of the love you shared. You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday, or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday. You can remember her and only that she’s gone, or you can cherish her memory and let it live on. You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back, or you can do what she’d want; Smile, open your eyes, love and go on. Forever in our hearts… Deb, Doug and Erin

communities more resilient and reduce damages. These could include: increased flash flood protection, better systems to deal with freezing rain episodes and extended power-outages, improved culverts and storm water management systems, and water conservation measures for low water periods. With municipalities and conservation authorities struggling under budget constraints, the identification and prioritization of adaptation measures and early implementation of the most urgent ones is important. Dr. Bruce illustrated one proven method for undertaking a climate change risk assessment at municipal and regional levels, together with an example of a visual display of the risk levels of various climate impacts. Dr. Bruce acknowledged the very useful work that has been done by the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority on water quality and aquatic ecosystems in the Tay watershed and Perth region. One very helpful undertaking was the flood plain mapping done in 2012; he highlighted the need to update this every five years as climate conditions change. He stressed that community organizations and individuals can and should play active roles in promoting and undertaking measures to adapt to the changing climate; deciding on priority measures should be based on widely shared analyses. Two complementary approaches are needed to address climate change issues: 1) To adapt; and 2) To reduce global and local emissions to slow the

rate of change. The speaker observed that Canada is clearly a laggard nation in implementing emissions reduction strategies especially compared with countries like Sweden which has similar latitudinal climate issues to Canada. A chart of projected provincial greenhouse gas emissions indicated a slow reduction across the country but a growth in emissions from the oil sands operations, although the industry is making significant efforts to reduce those emissions. In conclusion, the speaker emphasized that climate change is here and is increasing. Impacts will continue to increase for several decades in spite of reduction efforts which will slow the rate of change. The water sector is facing major impacts, and a portfolio of adaptation measures is essential to protect communities and the water sector. The talk provoked very active questions and interesting discussion.

Province’s spring turkey hunt just around the corner April 25-May 31 Lifestyle – Nothing says springtime like the sound of a distant gobble in the turkey woods. The spring turkey hunting season starts Friday, April 25 and runs to Saturday, May 31 and this season offers more opportunities for Ontario hunters than ever before. Sustainable wild turkey populations in Ontario have allowed for additional spring and fall hunting opportunities in 2014. For the first time, the Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) has introduced new spring turkey hunting seasons in Wildlife Management Unit (WMU) 42 (Sudbury district) and WMUs 47, 49 and 50 (North Bay and Parry Sound districts). A new fall hunting season will take place in WMU 59 (Pembroke district). The Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH), along with other advocates, began working with the MNR more than 25 years ago to restore wild turkeys in the province. “The reintroduction of the

THE EMC - 36 - Thursday, April 24, 2014

eastern wild turkey to Ontario is one of the province’s most successful wildlife recovery stories,” OFAH biologist Dawn Sucee says. “With more than 70,000 birds estimated in Ontario, populations seem to have stabilized in many areas. In other areas of the province, the range continues to expand naturally.” This is great news for Ontario turkey hunters who may not have had a turkey hunting season in their WMU previously, or for those who are interested in travelling to new hunting grounds. These additional turkey hunting opportunities were established in part using information submitted by Ontario hunters. Mandatory turkey harvest reporting enables MNR biologists to analyze populations and make recommendations on management. Successful turkey hunters must report their harvested bird by no later than noon the day after it was harvested.

Parents: How to make your children as happy as Pharrell Williams By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Can a horse work better than Prozac? It may not be a substitute for any necessary medication, but Mary Lou Macfarlane-File, founder of Fawg Forest Therapeutic Farm in Mountain, feels that the horse can be a big part of a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s road to wellness. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As soon as they (the patient), calms down, the horse calms down,â&#x20AC;? said Macfarlane-File, during a speech at The Stewart School in Perth on Wednesday, April 16. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of young people will calm themselves down for the horse before they do it for themselves.â&#x20AC;? Macfarlane-File worked at the Royal Ottawa Hospital for about 28 years, but after nearly three decades in such an environment, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted to do something different,â&#x20AC;? she said, in a â&#x20AC;&#x153;non-traditional environment.â&#x20AC;? Fawg Forest, a therapeutic farm that she describes as â&#x20AC;&#x153;a mental health clinic, on a farm, a counselling clinic on a 100-acre farm. It is out of an office, it is really fun, we can walk around,â&#x20AC;? she said during her talk, entitled: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Happiness and Mental Health: Health Essentials for Parents.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;For a long time, what I did was considered alternative therapy,â&#x20AC;? said Macfarlane-File. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Really, it is not. I just removed the office.â&#x20AC;? An award from the Canadian Mental Health Association, however, gave her the imprimatur of respectability of which she knew her farm was worthy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You cannot be a horse trainer and just do therapy,â&#x20AC;? she cautioned. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a method. It is not a treatment.â&#x20AC;? It is a means to an end. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are not a riding facility, as such,â&#x20AC;? said Macfarlane-File. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Though) I love teaching little kids to ride.â&#x20AC;? By taking therapy outside of a

Fawg Forest Therapeutic Farm founder Mary Lou Macfarlane-File spoke at The Stewart School in Perth April 16 about the Mountain-area mental health and counselling clinic. sterile, medical setting, she feels she is encouraging â&#x20AC;&#x153;pro-social relations,â&#x20AC;? relations which extend to animals, too. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We may go out and do chores, feed animals, but all the while, we are talking,â&#x20AC;? she said. One lesson that the patients learn right away is that, with animals, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the more you give, the more you receive.â&#x20AC;? Because there is still a bit of a stigma around mental illness, changing the venue also has another positive, intended consequence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of the time it is not, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to counselling,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? the patient will say. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh, I am going to the farm!â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;?

Macfarlane-File charged that society is failing its young people. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we have missed the boat on mental health,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We focus on the end results of mental healthâ&#x20AC;Ś If our youth are struggling and not feeling healthy, it affects (their) ability to function.â&#x20AC;? She added: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to talk about health and not illness.â&#x20AC;? While we may not be able to control our environments, parents can go a long way towards being good role models for their children. As Dr. Phil once said, children may not listen to everything their parents say, but they see everything they do. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you are handling your Failing young people stress well, your children learn Away from the farm, however, from that example,â&#x20AC;? Macfarlane-

File said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is OK to struggle,â&#x20AC;? she added, but you need to demonstrate to your children that you can adapt and change and find solutions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Are you being what you would like your children to be?â&#x20AC;? she asked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Always start from a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perspective. How do they feelâ&#x20AC;ŚWe may think we are hiding our stress well, but our children feed off it.â&#x20AC;? Sometimes, your child may need more help than you can give him or her and outside help may need to be brought in, at the point where â&#x20AC;&#x153;what you are doing doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to be working any more. That does not mean that you are a bad parent.â&#x20AC;? But there is also a difference in how mothers and fathers deal with the stresses of parenting.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Moms, we tend to feel guilty about everything,â&#x20AC;? said Macfarlane-File. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to let that go if we want to coach.â&#x20AC;? Both mothers and fathers though can also help more than hurt â&#x20AC;&#x201C; even when they think they are helping. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We, as loving and protective parents, are too quick to jump in and intervene,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of times, our kids do not want us to interveneâ&#x20AC;Ś we need to stand back from our instinct to protect.â&#x20AC;? Also, some things we take as being bad in parenting might actually be good signs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; even if it does not seem like it at the time. Macfarlane-File pointed to research done by Nancy Darling at Pennsylvania State University, which found that teens who lied less to their parents, tended to argue more with their parents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Arguing was a way of working out arguments, and telling truth to parents,â&#x20AC;? said Macfarlane-File. Teenagers are also more reactive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you have a teenage girl, you know about the drama.â&#x20AC;? Because of the instant nature of texting, for example, modern teens face even more opportunities than before for getting their emotions ratcheted up to a fever pitch. If a teen receives a nasty text message, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I (as a teen) send back an equally nasty text,â&#x20AC;? in retribution. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stood back and thought about it, it usually means World War III.â&#x20AC;? She advocates letting teenagers run themselves dry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Let them be extreme until empty,â&#x20AC;? said Macfarlane-File. Just say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wow,â&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Really,â&#x20AC;? periodically, to let them know you are still listening. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Very often, they will come up with their own answers. A lot of the time, they already know.â&#x20AC;? Parents often try to defuse the situation at the start: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We tell them because we want to cut out

the drama and cut to the chase.â&#x20AC;? Another thing that parents can do is put down the iPhone in the evening. Even if answering that text message from your boss after dinner is going to save you having to take care of it tomorrow morning at the office, by doing that, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I rob myself of my kid time.â&#x20AC;? That interaction time, â&#x20AC;&#x153;is lost in texting and emailing.â&#x20AC;? She advised creating electronic-free zones and times. Macfarlane-File provocatively pointed to the anti-bullying campaigns which have sprouted up in recent years at schools across the country like wildflowers. While they come from a good place, she fears that they are misguided. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have anti-suicidal campaigns in school. We have antibullying campaigns in school,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think they work. If we built pro-social skills, we wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have bullyingâ&#x20AC;ŚI think that there is a place for anti-bullying,â&#x20AC;? but it does not address the cause, only the symptom. But she acknowledged that schools do need to be a part of the solution. Churches used to be repositories for morality and good behaviour to be imparted on Sunday morning. But now, â&#x20AC;&#x153;church attendance is at the lowest level it has ever beenâ&#x20AC;Ś Now, it has to be at the school.â&#x20AC;? Something that can prove helpful for all people who are contending with mental health problems, be they parents or children, are things as simple and universal as gratitude, charity, and peace. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Acts of kindness lift our spirits. Trusting others lifts our spirits,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you are feeling really bad, go and do something for someone else.â&#x20AC;? As for mindfulness, â&#x20AC;&#x153;it is the ability to quiet the mind. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think about the past, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think about what is next, you are just in the moment. Just be mindful of the moment.â&#x20AC;?

Two open houses to be held this week for local health care program larmstrong@perfprint.ca

News — Members of the public are invited to attend two open houses this week, showcasing new health care programs offered in Kemptville. The Beth Donovan Hospice will open the doors of St. John’s United Church at 400 Prescott St. in Kemptville Thursday to open its new Day Hospice Program. Cake and refreshments will be served at the two-hour event, which runs from 1 to 3 p.m. Melanie Goldberg, a registered nurse with the hospice who coordinates the new program, was at the North Grenville Municipal Council regular meeting April 14 to discuss the day hospice program, a weekly day program for individuals who are suffering from a terminal or life limiting illness. The program, which will

cater to a small group of about six to eight clients, is offered to residents of North Grenville and the surrounding rural areas, including up toward Manotick, North Gower, over to Merrickville and down south to Spencerville; it is funded by the Champlain Local Health Integration Network. “It’ll provide support and socialization to these clients that are facing a life-changing illness,” said Goldberg. “They are quite isolated at times, not able to work any longer. This will provide that support for them.” The second program to open its doors this week is a new Assisted Living Service for High Risk Seniors in Kemptville. Also funded by the Champlain LHIN, the aim of the program is to increase health services for seniors in their homes to maintain their independence. The program,

which already runs in Williamsburg, is run with the intent to relieve pressure on hospital emergency rooms as well as prevent premature admissions to longterm care homes. “Seniors wish to live independently for as long as possible,” said Chantale LeClerc, CEO of the Champlain LHIN. “One of the LHIN’s aims is to ensure more seniors are cared for in their communities. By expanding Assisted Living Services for HighRisk Seniors to Kemptville, we are putting in place the kind of care that families need, want and deserve.” Although the Assisted Living Service launched in February, the official open house will happen Friday, April 25 from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. at 215 Saunders Street, Suite 106. The program can support up to 20 seniors at a time; at this time, spots remain open.

News - The specter of Ontario hospitals sending the elderly home before they should seems to be on the rise based on anecdotal information collected by the Ontario Council of Hospital Unions. Michael Hurley, who represents the union, stopped by Kemptville on Wednesday, April 9 to announce the findings of the report. Other union representatives made their own announcements in different parts of the province at the same time. In all cases the message was the same. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For nearly two decades Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s provincial government has purposely downsized hospitals, cutting 19,000 beds and reducing access to in-hospital restorative care and rehabilitation therapies, under the guise of shifting care from hospitals to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;outpatientsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; services in the community,â&#x20AC;? said Hurley reading from the report. The report is entitled, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Pushed out of Hospital, Abandoned at Home: After Twenty Years of Budget Cuts, Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Health System is Failing Patientsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The report represents a collection of anecdotal experiences and stories of several hundred patients from more than 30 Ontario communities who took part in a phone-in survey that lasted one year. The phone-in survey was sponsored by the Ontario Association of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists (OSLA) and the Ontario Council of Hospital Unions, (OCHU). The report concluded that the province was failing to deliver the right care, in the right place at the right time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The provincial governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health reforms are failing Ontario patients on many levels,â&#x20AC;? stated the report. The blame, according to the authors of the report, has to go to the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outpatient communityâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;based care model. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most affected are the elderly, who are often pushed out of the hospital when still acutely ill or in need of inhospital restorative care and therapies, for instance to help with swallowing and communication following a stroke. They are in fact being denied care that they deserve,â&#x20AC;? said Hurley. The provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s move to this particular model of community has resulted, according to the OCHU, in a decrease in the number of patients referred to members for therapy services including speech language pathology services. In 2012-2013 speech language pathology services amounted to just .7 per cent of all home care visits through Community Care Access Care Centres, (CCACC). According to

REGULAR COUNCIL Monday, April 28th, at 6:30pm in the Council Chambers, North Grenville Municipal Centre. For agenda information, please contact the Clerkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office or the Municipal website.

It’s a club nobody wants to join

E

ditorial – Losing a loved one to cancer, sadly, is becoming even more common, and not just because of our greying population. Better detection is going a long way towards helping arrest and even turn back the ravages of cancer, but, it also means that the number of people who know that they have it is growing too. Grandpa didn’t die of ‘old age,’ as we may have told ourselves decades ago, when people, like the normally tough John Wayne, refused to utter “the C word” but we now know he died of cancer. Today, one in three people will be touched by cancer. In the years to come, that number will jump to one in every two people. Look at the person sitting beside you now. One of the two of you will get cancer, statistically speaking. There is a bigger discussion that can be had about addressing the causes of cancer instead of the symptom of cancer. But that is a topic for another day, and one that is cold comfort for those who are in the midst of battling the disease. This month, the Canadian Cancer Society’s Daffodil Month, there are some voices who cut through the well-intentioned din of noise about cancer eradication, research, and prevention. One of those voices is from right here in our area, a teacher at the Catholic high school in Perth. Dominic Marando is used to speaking in front of his students, even sharing personal stories. But the story of losing his wife Maureen is one he is not comfortable sharing – in fact, it is one he wishes he would rather never have had to tell at all. After years of gentle prodding by organizers of the school’s Relay for Life committee, for the 2014 kick-off assembly, Marando decided that,

L

now 10 years since his wife’s death, this was an opportune moment to open up his heart to the school. He joked that he was about to lose all of his “street cred,” but behind the humour, in an utterly silent high school gymnasium – Marando told the tale of his wife’s long journey with cancer, how it touched him, how he prayed for God to let her live and then, ultimately, how one morning, he found himself praying that he would let her die, and release her from her pain. There wasn’t a dry eye in the whole front row, and, we are sure, quite a few red eyes throughout the assembly as well. There are a lot of platitudes bandied around at this time of year. We believe in them, but we sort of gloss over them when we read them or hear them. Together we can defeat cancer. Be part of the crusade for the cure. Who are you running or walking for? All very well and good, noble sentiments to be sure. But it is the names and faces and stories and hearts of the dearly departed that stare out at us from old photos that mean the most, that are the real driving force in the battle with cancer. The sudden whiff of a familiar perfume inexplicably drifting by on the breeze, a favourite song on the radio, even the way the sunset catches the summer haze on one particular evening, and we are right back there with them again. They are there in spirit, but while there is still time this April, let us do what we can to support the fight against cancer, to create more time, to make more memories, so that those sunsets and songs can be shared with the one we love, so that we too do not have to follow in brave Mr. Marando’s footsteps, in a lonely salute to a loved one in front of a big crowd.

And then there was one: Gracie the vacuous

ifestyle - There have been a lot of stories circulating about abuse in food processing / production facilities lately. CBC released a disturbing story about the mistreatment of chicks in a hatchery and Canada AM aired a segment about inadequate conditions of veal calves in Quebec. It’s important to remember that these cases are few and far between and they are not the norm. I know two separate families that operate animal slaughterhouses and they go to great lengths to ensure the animals are comfortable and at peace until the end, which comes quickly and painlessly. Most of us eat some kind of meat, chicken or fish, right? How do we think it gets to our plates? We just don’t think about it. Well, I’m pretty realistic, I think, and I realize a farm animal has a purpose: to provide food, either as a meat animal or a producer of babies that will be meat animals. I checked the records and Gracie has produced five seasons of lambs. I feel she deserves to live out the rest of her

life on the farm as a pet. Call me crazy, but hey – I never professed to be a real farmwife. She has worked her way into my heart – and the hearts of many friends and family. She just looks at you with wide eyes and such a trusting, blank face. Gracie is the sheep who accompanied me on the Christmas float in the parade two years ago. She is the sheep who thinks she is a dog, comes when she is called, and stands to be petted. When the truck headed out to market with our last shipment of sheep, Gracie was not on it. We didn’t think Gracie was pregnant this year. She appeared quite thin and sickly through most of the gestation. Her birthing of a single healthy male lamb was difficult; I had to help her to

deliver. He was big - and hungry. The last eight weeks he has depleted most of her fat stores and she is thin again. Now that all the other sheep and lambs are gone, I’m giving her a cup of sweet feed every day to fatten her up. When she hears the patio door slide open, she runs over to the fence and waits to follow me to the barn. She seems to know to keep quiet about it, too. She’s not as dumb as she looks. If she bleats her joyful comments about the snack, as sheep are wont to do, the donkey will be on to her and she will have to share. So we walk to the barn in silence, her little high-heeled hooves swiftly picking a path over the frozen manure. I slide the barn door open and she clip-clops through the door after me to enjoy her treat. I’m a little worried about how Gracie will fare alone with Donkey but so far, so good. As the weather warms up and “spring fever” sets in, he tends to get a little rambunctious and I am just hoping he doesn’t decide to spend his extra energy chasing her around the field to

make her scream. He can be a brat when he’s bored and he loves a good chase. I’ll have to find his halter and hobble chain so he can’t run after her. When Misty has her foal in June, she will be separated from Donkey for a few weeks, until we are sure he is going to respect the new addition. It’s in his instinct to protect the farm from intruders so this is a real concern. We may even have to put him over with the cows for a time. Or maybe he will just learn to appreciate Gracie as his companion, and bond with her.

THE EMC - K8 - Thursday, April 24, 2014


Dear Editor; Ms. Fisher asks us some very important questions in her article. Where do we draw the line between stronger, disease-resistant crops and our own health? What about the steroids and antibiotics that we put into feed for beef and chicken?

Dear Editor; The Ontario Liberal government, under pressure from the hunting lobbyists, have allowed the spring bear hunt to begin this spring in eight different areas in the province. This action will now allow hunters to hunt black bears. Bears are the only big game animal with dependent young that are hunted in the spring. Natural Resources Minister David Orazietti’s (Liberal party) states the program will ban hunting cubs or female bears with clubs. Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources report 2009 found 34 per cent of bears killed in the spring are female and an average of 17 per cent of those are adults with cubs. The orphaned cubs die of dehydration, starvation and predation. Minister Orazietti according to your own ministry banning spring bear hunting for female bears and cubs doesn’t work. In the eight areas where the Liberals have opened the spring hunt the black bears will be hunted and chased by hunting dogs for a total of five months each year. Given the fact that the bears hibernate for the winter this pro hunting action the Liberals have done will give little peace for the bears. Baiting and killing hungry bears in the spring is like shooting fish in a barrel. Killing these animals is not a solution as other bears will move into the vacant areas resulting in the continued killing of bears and orphaning of their cubs. The Minister should reinstate completely the excellent bear wise program in these areas and also the rest of he provinces. If the Minister is determined to continue this barbaric ‘hunt’ he should allocate significant funds to those who are licensed rehabilitators so they can care for the injured and orphaned cubs. If you oppose the spring bear hunt please contact your M.P.P., Premier Kathleen Wynne at Kathleen.Wynne@Ontario.ca, 416-325-1941, Kathleen Wynne Legislative Building Queens park Toronto Ontario M7A-1A1.

Can hardly contain myself I was recently asked to conduct a workshop on planting containers. The tentative date is mid May. I’ll keep you posted. For me, doing containers is one of the things I enjoy most at the nursery. It gives you a chance to be creative with size, colour and texture. For those that can’t make the workshop, I’ll give you some of the tips that have served me well over the years. The container doesn’t matter. If you like it and it holds enough soil and has drainage holes, you’re good to go. One of our most interesting plantings was in a discarded bus brake drum that was repainted. Most containers hold more soil than you will ever need. Annuals only need 6 to 8 inches of soil to flourish. I load the bottom of the pot with chunks of styrofoam or old plastic pots. It saves soil and makes the container a lot lighter. Now the important bit, the potting mix. I use a mixture of potting mix with polymer gel for water retention and 3-way soil that has soil, loam and compost included. Then I moisten the mix before planting. Once I have the plants in, I give it another light watering and sprinkle some slow release granular fertilizer with even numbers like 14-14-14. Water soluble fertilizer works well but needs repeated applications throughout the summer. One of the things that just drives me crazy is to see what I call “Spikies”. That’s a container with a spike of some sort in the centre and flowers surrounding it. Use your

imagination, mix up textures and your favourite colours. Symmetry is not your friend. Plant odd numbers of plants. And think about where your container is going. What’s the colour scheme of your deck or porch? Pick colours that compliment. I have more and more customers asking me to plant up their containers. It’s very flattering but when you enjoy something it seems to be infectious. Even Angie has asked me to do all the hanging baskets and containers this year. I must be doing something right. When the annuals grow a little more I will plant up a bunch of containers and take a few photos. I will post them on our website www. floraldesignnursery.com to give you a few ideas. This year, think outside the box or the cylinder. Plant what brings you pleasure and make it an explosion of colour and texture. There are so many different cultivars this year with amazing colour. Check them out. And don’t forget about doing a container of herbs for the kitchen. Herbs have many different textures and fragrances. They look good and taste even better. The options are limitless. Just try to contain yourself. It is so much fun. If you have any gardening questions or comments, email us at the link below.

Community – Children had a great time searching for Easter Eggs at the fourth annual Easter Egg Hunt at Maplewood Park in Oxford Mills. A large group of moms, dads and children gathered on Sunday afternoon at the park and then took off in a frenzy to find as many eggs as possible. The eggs were hidden on the ground and even in the trees. In the photo on the top left, Samuel Tanner enjoys a tasty treat as he takes in the festivities with his mother Jennifer.

to keep Kemptville College operating. “Agriculture is a $1.6 billion dollar industry in Eastern Ontario and as the business of farming gets more complex and technology driven, local education becomes ever more important” expressed Marty Derks, Vice-Chairman of the Task Force. “As a farmer in Eastern Ontario we require an Agriculture diploma program. On behalf of all farmers in the region, I cannot stress enough the need for this type of highquality post-secondary education.” MPP Reaction An essential first step, but there is much more work to do, said Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark in response to Tuesday’s announcement that the provincial government is providing $2 million to ensure an intake of students at Kemptville College this fall for the 2014-15

academic year. “Today’s announcement doesn’t provide everything we asked for, but it’s an essential first step. It gives our community and the Kemptville College Renewal Task Force more time to bring those partners to the table who can develop a full range of programs to meet the needs of Eastern Ontario’s agri-food sector and farm families.” Clark’s primary disappointment is there won’t be an intake of new students in any of the agricultural degree or diploma programs. “There is a 97-year tradition of excellence in agricultural education at Kemptville College. My focus remains on ensuring those degree and diploma programs continue to be the cornerstone of the course offerings provided here in the future.” Submitted by the Kemptville College Renewal Task Force.

Kemptville Little League receives $45,200 for South Gower Park

Sports – As North Grenville continues to experience steady growth, it is no surprise that it is home to the fastest growing Little League organization in Ontario. The Community Strategic Plan identifies that it is a priority to work with partners to satisfy the recreational needs of all age groups. In keeping with this goal, North Grenville has joined forces with the Kemptville District Little League (KDLL), supported by a grant of $45,200 from the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF), to rehabilitate an aging ball diamond at South Gower Park, which has been unusable and unsafe for a number of years. “The OTF grant is an invaluable contribution to the development of Little League in Kemptville,” remarked Tim Hamilton, President of KDLL. “Our baseball and girls’ softball programs are growing by 25 per cent each year and this grant allows us to continue to grow and provide a safe environment for our children.”

Whole community benefits Mark Guy, director of parks, recreation and culture, expressed that the whole community will benefit from this opportunity. ”This funding will enhance North Grenville’s ability to provide premium level recreation facilities for our residents,” Guy said. “It will support the continued growth of Little League, and enable them to host regional and provincial events that will attract teams and visitors from across the province who will shop, dine and explore throughout our community.” “I’m pleased the Ontario Trillium Foundation is providing this grant to help the Kemptville Little League upgrade its facilities and allow even more boys and girls to participate in this great sport,” said Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark. “Sports and recreation is critical to the health and well-being of our youth and I’m so proud of the Little League volunteers and the Municipality of North Grenville for their work to provide more opportunities.” The diamond, located in the middle of a number of soccer fields, is missing covered dugouts, enclosed bullpens, an enclosed batting cage, outfield fencing, and the correct infield fill. These improvements are scheduled to be completed later this spring, allowing play on this diamond in the upcoming season and ready to host the 2014 Little League Ontario Junior Division Championship in July. A leading grant-maker in Canada, the Ontario Trillium Foundation strengthens the capacity of the voluntary sector through investments in community-based initiatives. An agency of the Government of Ontario, OTF builds healthy and vibrant communities.

Letter to the editor: Stand and fight against proposed gravel pit Dear Editor; I am unaware of any research done by our planning department in the specific area of the effects of aggregate projects on housing values. I am, however, aware of that department’s wholehearted and inexplicably enthusiastic support for this project, support which dates from the earliest stages of its development. I have attempted, without being patronizing, to educate council and the greater community on the real threat to the financial health presented by such a project to those located within a few kilometres of it. I have used Canadian and American research to do so, research carried out in a scientific and objective manner. The American research is of a very high standard and uses analytical tools, which solidly establish the role of quarries and pits in destroying the savings of homeowners represented by home equity. The uneducated opinion of some planners who seem very interested in this project does not change the results of those studies, and that opinion only strengthens the probability of harm being done to many residents of North Grenville, given the unquestioning tendency by council to accept the pronouncements of the planning department. So much for working for the good of the community. As I said at the public meeting dealing with this issue, if council wants to establish an objectively dependable basis on which to make its decision concerning impacts on local home values, it may commission its own study. Failing that, if they actually care at all about the issue of potential for destruction of home values, they have no choice but to refer to the research already done on this topic. In no case should they depend on their planning department for such advice. That department may be well versed in some of the nuts and bolts of planning, but I assure you, they don’t know much about the economic impacts I have discussed both with you and with the council and community in general. This is an issue, which causes difficulty for council and for good reason. The province has virtually eradicated local autonomy on many issues. None of the pertinent acts spell out the importance of citizens’ rights to protection of home value in relation to aggregate projects, notwithstanding references to social well-being and economic development in PPS 5. And given the record of the OMB relative to such issues, virtually any project, which has been stopped courageously at a municipal council, has been allowed at the OMB level to proceed. So, council has to decide: Do they believe there might be an argument to be made to stop the Lafarge project based on its negative effect on social well-being through the destruction of resident home equity and water issues? Or do they believe the unsubstantiated assurances of the planning department? Or do they understand the reality of the damage which will be done, yet choose to take what they see is the practical road so as not to waste $500,000.00 of taxpayer resources on an OMB case which they believe would be fruitless in any case? Personally, I think they should take legal advice to help sharpen their focus on this issue. And, if they feel after doing so that opposition would be

unsuccessful, they should follow their conscience on the issue. At no time, however, should they gull themselves into believing that the Lafarge Pit will cause no harm. Making a hard decision and surrendering to a powerful enemy is not shameful in my book. I understand that. What I will not accept is a surrender,

which is accompanied by a denial of the reality of this situation. It is here where I believe a council can and should show leadership. Leadership in explaining how their decision to allow the pit is being made under duress and leadership in admitting the damage the decision, made under such duress, will cause.

R0012084794_0509

THE EMC - K19 - Thursday, April 24, 2014

That would take courage and would earn my respect, though I would be opposed to the decision made to allow the project. I’ll be registering as a councillor candidate on Tuesday. And if you wish to know what my decision would be on Tuesday night if I were already there, it would be to refuse to accept any part of

Lafarge’s application. Sometimes, one has to stand and fight in order to protect what is right. And defending the health, welfare and economic integrity of the residents of North Grenville is right! Jim Bertram

Merrickville hosts Community-Wide Garage Sale on first weekend in May Community – Merrickville’s Community Wide Garage Sale is a true rite of spring, right up there with making maple syrup, robins chirping, and this year especially, that much anticipated final snow melt. The sale always falls on the first weekend in May. So this year, this highly enjoyable, decades-old spring tradition takes place on Saturday, May 3 and Sunday, May 4. Catharine Miller, co-owner of Miller’s of Merrickville Country Store and Merrickville & District Chamber of Commerce board member, has been fielding queries about the sale since January. The sale attracts crowds from Cornwall, Kemptville, Smiths Falls, Brockville, Ottawa, Kingston and places in between. This year, as in the past, bargain-hunters can hard-

ly wait. And in Merrickville, residents, merchants, business owners, local non-profit groups – everyone – is up for it. Dozens and dozens of garage doors will begin opening and yards will start filling up at 8 a.m. - or earlier. You’ll find an alphabet’s assortment of stuff to dicker and deal about: from antiques, to appliances, baubles to books, from Fisher-Price toys, glassware to golf clubs, tools, trunks, to zoos of stuffed animals. Many garage sales are multi-family or multi-generational sales, making for an even greater selection of items. Meanwhile, village merchants will be filling their porches, sidewalks and alleyways with fantastic finds. Check out the greatly discounted pictures, children’s wear, braided rugs and other country

home decor at Mirick’s Landing. Or the home items and accent pieces at Mrs. McGarrigle’s Fine Food Shop. A few steps away, the porch at Miller’s of Merrickville will be stacked with seasonal ornaments and country decor for the home, office, cottage and garden. A short walk south down St. Lawrence Street will take you to Gray Art Glass and a sidewalk sale filled with hand-blown friendship and witches’ balls, glass flowers - and more. On Saturday only, you can support several local non-profit groups: A Chance Animal Rescue Inc. will host a barbecue outside the LCBO on Elgin Street, as well as a giant, multi-family garage sale with over a dozen booths. And both St. Ann Roman Catholic Church and Holy Trinity Anglican Church will

be holding yard and bake sales, as well as barbecues. Exhausted from a morning or full day of dickering and dealing? You can always grab a bite at one of Merrickville’s restaurants or chip stands – as well as at the local church barbecues. The streets are expected to be especially congested on Saturday, putting parking spots at a premium. “So we are encouraging bargain hunters to find a parking spot and, if possible, to make their way on foot,” states Miller. “You’re sure to find many garage and yard sales, within easy walking distance,” she adds confidently.

OPP investigating found human remains By LAURA ARMSTRONG larmstrong@perfprint.ca

News — Provincial police are investigating after human remains were found near Winchester last week. Police officers of the Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police responded to a report of found remains on Steen Road near Thompson Road, close to Winchester, Thursday, April 17 just before 8:30 p.m.

A preliminary investigation deter- tion is asked to contact the SDG OPP at mined that the remains are human. The 613-534-2223 or 1-888-310-1122. identity of the deceased and the cause of death have yet to be determined. The remains were sent the Office of the Chief Coroner in Oshawa, Ontario for a post-mortem examination. That examination was to be conducted on Tuesday, April 22. The SDG Crime Unit is continuing the investigation under the direction of OPP A/Inspector Jim Gorry, Criminal Investigation Branch. Anyone with informa-

MPP Clark recognizes area heroes at Queen’s Park News – Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark stood in the Ontario Legislative Assembly recently to pay tribute to four local heroes for their quick-thinking actions in saving the life of a fellow player during a recent Brockville Gentleman’s Hockey League game. In a Member’s Statement, Clark recognized the heroic actions of Kim Hansen, Bob Wheeler, Al Perry and Chris Robertson. They were responsible for giving fellow player Dan Doyle two shocks from a Public Access Defibrillation (PAD) Unit that saved his life on March 24 at the Brockville Memorial Centre. “It’s important to not only commend

these four men for their actions, but to use this incident as an example of the need for each of us to be better prepared to act in an emergency,” said Clark. MPP Clark attended the St. John Ambulance Brigade of Leeds, Grenville and Lanark AGM last week and was told publicity about the ‘save’ at last month’s hockey game led to an increase in requests for PAD units and people asking about CPR courses. “As I said in my statement today, what a great legacy it is that the actions of these four heroes will no doubt lead to many more people getting the training that could help them save someone’s life in the future,” said Clark.

In October 2013, The Kemptville Panthers Atom Rep team won the Regional Silver Stick Tournament in Pembroke, Ontario, which led them to an invite to the Provincial Silver Stick Tournament in Forest, Ontario. We then started looking into sponsorship from local businesses to help to get us there. We would like to thank the following companies for generously donating to the Panthers Atom Rep team. Without the help of these businesses, we would not have been able to have this wonderful opportunity and experience. We would also like to thank the Kemptville 73’s for supporting our fundraising efforts.

Land trust conservancy finalizes agreement for Keddy Nature Sanctuary Community – In late January, the Mississippi Madawaska Land Trust Conservancy (MMLTC) finalized its newest conservation easement agreement with Paul and Cathy Keddy on their beautiful 530-acre property located in the northeastern corner of Drummond-North Elmsley Township. The Keddys, both professional ecologists, first discovered this spectacular property back in the ‘70s, long before the area was designated a Provincially Significant Wetland Complex. Here follows Cathy’s account about their decision to legally protect their property forever. “One of the first decisions we made when preparing for marriage back in 1976, when we were still students at Dalhousie University in Halifax, was to buy our first 100 acres of forest in Lanark County. Many thought we were foolish. But we had walked that property and seen 30 pairs of Great Blue Herons nesting in a wetland. How better to celebrate a marriage than to protect these magnificent creatures. Over the years we camped and eventually built a small cabin where we spent many happy weekends. As we got to know the property better, we found a stream that flowed to the east, and a patch of wild orchids in a seepage area. We owned neither. But over time, these properties came on the market, and we added them to our debt load. Twice we could buy a property only after it had been logged. This was painful, but we knew that whatever the short term damage, the trees would eventually regrow and wildlife habitat would recover. The last property was the toughest, and we were able to buy it only after the landowner had quite deliberately increased the price and sold the logging rights, just to be spiteful. The skidders were already felling huge beech trees as we signed the mortgage papers. Paul’s parents very generously contributed $20,000 so we could buy out the logging company before it felled the 30

At this point we were the proud owners of a square mile. Now there is a commitment. Not only were we responsible for protecting the forest, and for making our monthly payments, but at home we had two growing children, while on the land we had populations of salamanders and frogs and warblers and

turkey vultures. What a family! When Paul became ill in the early ‘90s, finances were stretched to the limit. Eventually, our family moved to Louisiana for eight years where Paul earned enough money to pay off the accumulated debts. Now it was all ours! But there would be little point in protecting 120-year-old oaks or populations of wild orchids if the next

owner would simply log them or create estate lots. We were determined to pass it on intact. The Nature Conservancy of Canada was interested, but by the time we returned from Louisiana there was a new local land conservancy on the scene, the Mississippi Madawaska Land Trust. We were delighted that they agreed to become partners, and take over from us in the

long run. And 999 years, renewable, is indeed a long-term arrangement! Each of us will die. We know that when that happens to us, all the wild creatures we have known over the past 50 years will be safe from developers and loggers. They will carry on their lives without us. The 120-year-old oaks and hemlocks will live several more centuries, and then, when they die, become homes for owls and hawks and tree frogs. Yes, we could have sold the land, and burned through the money on expensive cars and luxury cruises. But, we would have been no happier. And, as they say, you can’t take it with you. What about our sons and the issue of inheritance? The boys are thrilled that a property with so many happy memories will stay just the way they remember it. Moreover, the easement agreement we signed leaves each of them the option to someday live on the edge of the property and enjoy it with their own families. And the salamanders and frogs and warblers and turtles and all the rest of the innumerable inhabitants, while they may not speak our language or understand land trusts, will be left alone to carry on their lives in relative peace. We cannot think of a more satisfying conclusion to our lifetime project.” The MMLTC is delighted with the choice the Keddys made and knows it will have untold benefits for generations to come. Paul and Cathy have already compiled an initial inventory of species on their property, including several species at risk. To add to this list, the Lanark County Stewardship Council will be hosting a 24-hour Bioblitz at the Keddy Nature Sanctuary on Friday, June 6 to Saturday, June 7. Species experts from area naturalist clubs will be invited to assist with this event. Watch for more information coming soon on the MMLTC website at www.mmltc.ca.

Maurice was willing to sell it to me but his wife was not. I telephoned them several times over the next three years but she would not give her consent. “Finally, in the summer of 1976, I asked if I could come over and talk to them about the car. I offered them $1,000 more than what the car was worth and she said it would have to be cash. I hustled to the bank, brought a handful of hundred dollar bills back to their house, and laid them out across the kitchen table. She counted the money several times, looked at Maurice, and told him to sell me the car! “I owned that car for thirty-one

Lifestyle – Ken Tuffnail lives just outside Stratford, Ontario: “Hi Bill: In 1973 I was looking for an old second car in good shape for my wife to drive back and forth to town. I asked my father if he knew of any. He mentioned his neighbour up the street, Maurice H., who had an old car in his garage. “One Saturday in the summer of 1973, I approached Maurice, who remembered me as a kid, and I asked about his car. I told him I was looking for an older car for my wife, and although he was willing to sell it to me, he would not sell it to me as just an everyday vehicle. “He asked if I would like to see the car. He opened the garage door and staring at me was the rear end of a huge red car. I said to him: ‘What is it?’ He said it is a 1955 CHRYSLER WINDSOR DELUXE NEWPORT SPECIAL CLUB COUPE. The car was in pristine original condition inside and out with 41,000 miles. For that year, it had a new body, new 301 Spitfire 188 HP engine, and completely new styling.

Passionate dance promoter provides lessons at Swing into Spring Arts – To hear Tania Munro speak about the art of dance is to seriously believe that anyone –regardless of lack of rhythm, or the annoying problem of having two left feet – can learn to happily twirl about the dance floor when the music begins. It’s a passion that will be on display Saturday, May 3 at 7 p.m. sharp at the Perth Civitan Club when Munro offers free dance lessons in advance of that evening’s big band extravaganza with the renowned Standing Room Only Big Band. Munro – who this year marks ten years for her Carleton Place-based Tania’s Dance Studio, recently renamed Tania and Rick’s Dance Studio – has loved the art of movement since she was a little girl in El Salvador, where Latin and salsa rhythms were everywhere. Her family came to Canada in 1988, where she began taking dance lessons in Ottawa and eventually ended up teaching

there as well. She subsequently moved out to Lanark County, operating out of her home before eventually taking over the old LCBO building at 55 Lansdowne Avenue in Carleton Place, where they have been for three years. Munro says her students range in age from eight to 76, and vary from individuals wanting to make sure their dancing feet are ready for a wedding day, to those looking for fun ways to stay active without necessarily having to go to a gym. “There’s a real social aspect to it, and lots of couples meet each other at the studio and become friends, going out together and attending different dance events in the area,” she says. “It’s really rewarding to do this work because many people come in to try something new and different and as they learn, you can see their self-esteem go up, and they carry themselves with

more pride and confidence,” she says. “It’s also very humbling for me because I get to meet so many great people and hear their stories when we are doing the dance lessons. We get to be able to say that our work is part of what makes people’s lives better and happier, and who can ask for more than that?” When she first moved to Carleton Place, Munro says she sometimes ran into an attitude that frowned on dance as inappropriate for the stereotypical “manly men,” yet as word about her work got around, she saw, bit by bit, men who fit that profile begin showing up. “They learned that dancing was not just for women and that men who can dance are quite popular with the ladies!” Munro laughs. “Sometimes you see a fiancé or wife bringing their husbands in kicking and screaming, but before they know it, they are having fun.” Munro is looking forward to the May

3 Swing into Spring event. “Standing Room Only always creates such a buzz when they perform,” she says. “You could always have a DJ or a CD of swing music, but it is very different when the musicians are there playing their instruments and they connect with the dancers. It’s like their energy feeds off each other and builds throughout the night.” Although Munro has no specific plans for a 2014 10th anniversary party as yet, Tania and Rick’s Dance Studio is holding a grand opening to celebrate the new partnership with Rick Ruggles on Saturday, May 24. Doors for Swing into Spring will open at 6:30 p.m., with the free dance lesson at 7 p.m. and big band swing music until 11 p.m. It’s all part of the official kickoff to the Classic Theatre Festival’s fifth anniversary season. Tickets to Swing into Spring are available by calling 613485-6434 or online at classictheatre.ca.

For the first time since I started writing these reviews, a car manufacturer actually supplied a demonstrator that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a fully loaded model. As minivan buyers are a pretty priceminded group, Honda supplied the SE level trim version (one up from the entry level) of their Odyssey to demonstrate that they can compete on price point as well as a number of other important areas in this segment. The Odyssey starts at $31,819 for the LX level and takes the price tour up to $46,879 for a well-trimmed Touring model. My eight passenger SE came in at $30,874; yes actually cheaper than the base LX level, proving Honda is ready to compete with the other players in this field. All prices are before destina-

tion fees, dealer prep, taxes, or current incentives. Like all Odysseys, my SE tester came with a 3.5 L V6 (putting out 248 hp) mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. This power-train combo has a long and successful history with Honda and moves the 2,000 kg transport with ease. It comes with everything youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d expect plus dual-zone HVAC, second row power windows, remote entry, seven-speaker audio with Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity with text messaging, rearview camera, fold-in-floor third row seating, and eight passenger capacity just to hit the highlights. Unlike most minivans, the Odyssey provides serious storage (846 L) behind the third seats, meaning the family and their luggage can get to their destination at the same time. The first thing you notice when getting in the Odyssey is a low exterior door handle (about the average personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s belt line making it easy to grab when your hands and/or arms are full) and the easy step in height.

The 2014 Honda Odyssey offers reliability and a smooth ride. doors close with a solid feel as the entire vehicle seems heavier than its spec sheet indicates. Even with empty seats (either up or stored down) there was very little body noise and absolutely no rattles. On rough and twisty spring frost-heaved

roads, the ride was smooth, and tight and surprisingly un-minivan-like. Controls and handles are well laid out and the only complaint I had in this area was related to smallish HVAC controls mounted high up on the centre stack. Forward and side

visibility is better than average and the large rear camera monitor provides a high-definition view. Shoppers in this segment are looking for safety and value and reliability. On the safety front Honda delivers with four-

wheel ABS, active headrests, front, side, and air curtain airbags, stability and traction control. For value, this SE level tester has everything except a rear seat entertainment system and that can be a pretty inexpensive add-on from either the dealer or an aftermarket shop. The Odyssey is rated at 10.9 L/100 km city and 7.1 L/100 k highway (25.9 mpg and 39.8 mpg respectively). The US ratings are 22.8 mpg city and 33.6 mpg highway (converted to imperial gallons). Using the Canadian ratings the Odysseyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 79.5 L fuel tank should deliver a mixed driving range of around 800 km and cost about $95 to fill at $1.27/L. The P235/65R17 tires my tester (and every level of Odyssey except Touring) was equipped with, are available in a very large range of makes and models for around $150-$250 each. The Odyssey is rated to tow 1588 kg (3494 lb.). While the Odyssey SEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s price tag might be higher than certain competitors, it delivers enough added value to justify the price and most used vehicle valuation companies peg it at holding its value better than anything else. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the market for a family hauler thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s earned its marks, then check out the Honda Odyssey. Yours in service, Brian Turner

Science fiction film fails to deliver despite strong performances radical procedure to upload Willâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s consciousness into a computer. RIFT gets wind of what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing and tries to stop them without success. Will gains access to the internet, and from there expands and evolves. There seems to be no limit to what Will can accomplish. He begins making quantum leaps in technological advancement. Will begins to make plans to change the whole world, but is it really Will or is it something else, and what will this change really mean for humanity? Transcendence is a fascinating piece of science fiction. I love the way it questions the very nature of consciousness, and what makes us human. It would make a great read, but as a movie it is boring. It moves painfully slow as it attempts to hammer home the morality of what Will is doing, and fails to engage the audience. This failure is due to two main flaws in the film. The first is a failure to properly develop the love story between Will and Evelyn. I needed more between

them to believe she would be willing to go to any lengths to save him, and he to save her. The second flaw is the lack of development of Paul Bettanyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s character Max Waters. Max is the hero of the story. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the person who bridges the gap between scienceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s potential for good and for harm, yet this idea

While the story kind of loses the audience the cast is still very good. Johnny Depp is an incredible character actor who makes full use of his talents here. Rebecca Hall delivers a truly MARK HASKINS unique portrayal of a woman in love.

They are on the cusp of creating just such a consciousness when Will is shot by a member of an anti-technology extremist group called RIFT. The bullet only grazes Will, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s laced with a radioactive isotope. Just enough to ensure Willâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death from radiation poisoning.

would have been 100 years old this year. As a rising comic magician in Atlanta, Ga., Mullica met Skelton in the early 1980â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. They began a lasting, personal relationship that included some valuable advice from veteran to protĂŠgĂŠ : clean up the language, avoid jokes built on negative racial stereotypes, and always perform as though there are children in the crowd. After Skeltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death in 1997, Mullica penned a show in tribute to his good friend.

Skeltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter Valentina saw the show for the ďŹ rst time last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought it was my dad on stage, but it was Tom. His mannerisms and gestures were just like my fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What a treat to see a true impressionist.â&#x20AC;? Tickets to the show are $45.00 plus tax.

Author of Tax is Not a Four-Letter Word says paying taxes is a good thing derek.dunn@metroland.com

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Next to weather, Canadians love to commiserate over taxes; especially when incometax filing season is at hand. Not so much Alex Himelfarb. He wants to change the way Canadians view paying taxes. From the H&R Block commercials bemoaning â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;tax painâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in the backside to the dominant narrative that public revenue is money forcibly taken from hardworking taxpayers: the assumption is taxes are bad. And any person or party calling for a tax hike is laughably unfit to rule. Himelfarb is co-editor of Tax is Not a Four-Letter Word â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A Different Take on Taxes in Canada. The compilation of essays by many leading experts explores various aspects of tax policy. Himelfarb filed already, well ahead of the May 5 extended deadline. Doing so didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t in the least faze this Ottawa resident and Government of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former most-senior non-political official. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was just fine with filing my taxes,â&#x20AC;? said Himelfarb, one-time clerk of the privy council. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a truly privileged life. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the son of immigrants and this country has done much for us.â&#x20AC;? But what of those who are not grateful for government services? those who either donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appreciate or need programs like welfare or the old age pension system, public education or universal healthcare? Himelfarb says class stratification can reach such extremes that the ultra rich believes it is entitled to all it has, that it earned its wealth (even if inherited or had educated employees). Conversely, the poor can loose all hope and believe the system is rigged. Meanwhile the middle class will resent those beneath and forgive those above. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why we need to have a conversation on how we can restore the public good,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The book is really about taxes as a proxy for how we think about our obligations toward one another and our responsibilities to the public good.â&#x20AC;? The great bulk of taxes are used to pay for social programs

that benefit the vast majority of Canadians, a point Himelfarb says has been lost amid the last 35 years of Thatcherism and Reaganomics that insist on decreasing taxes ad infinitum. The issue hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always been as polarized between left and right. From the early to mid 20th century most progressive social programs in the US and Canada were put in place by rightwing administrations trying to stave off communism. Leftwingers were often libertarians suspicious of government as an instrument of tycoons and their corporations. When the generation that won the Second World War returned from Europe both sides favoured social programs to aid the transition back to civilian life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why left and right donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work very well. Progressives understand the state is necessary to contain the market and a strong civil society is needed to contain the state,â&#x20AC;? he said. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why he talks about value for tax dollars, as do all moderates, because blind trust in the state is as foolish as blind trust in the markets. Both are capable of tyranny. Less means more But what of the commonly held refrain: tax people and corporations less and business will thrive, creating more jobs and more tax revenue? Trickledown economics has been tried for the past 35 years, culminating in the 2008 economic meltdown caused by deregulation and profit concentration, Himelfarb indicated. He cited a recent bipartisan Congressional Research Service study showing tax cuts didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t deliver on their promises. Then there are the obvious successes in social welfare nations in northern Europe where standard of living and happiness indicators far surpass the laissezfaire economies of the US and Japan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The market is not everything. Whereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the evidence that tax cuts deliver anything but suffering and pain,â&#x20AC;? he said. Suffering and pain is something tax cut advocates often point to, saying the private sector is suffering therefore the public

sector must be reduced. But most mainstream economists agree that, when in recession or near recession there must be stimulus spending on the public side to bolster the economy; and when the economy rebounds, governments should scale back. That is exactly what the late federal finance minister Jim Flaherty eventually agreed to do. Himelfarb agrees that a large government presence in the economy cushions against booms and busts. Sunshine lists and union bashing among cynics contribute to a culture that denigrates the public sector. Himelfarb said the highest level public servants are paid less than counterparts in the corporate world. But that is a weak response for those who say the highest paid in both sectors are raking in too much. He added that it is untrue that public servants donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t contribute anything. To those who advocate austerity measures in the public sector, they need to explain why it is good for traffic gridlock, escalating post-secondary costs, healthcare wait lines and more to continue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at least force our politicians to answer questions,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are fond of asking how much a new idea is going to cost, but not what is lost when they cut taxes.â&#x20AC;? As for those who say they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay any more; those on fix incomes, or among the working class: itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always better to pool money rather than go it alone, Himelfarb indicated, and lower income citizens tend to get back more than they pay in. To others, some of whom fake hardship to mask greed: â&#x20AC;&#x153;As for the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;If I have suffered, others should suffer,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I would just say thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a race to the bottom that I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be a part of.â&#x20AC;? Tax and spenders Another common refrain is this-or-that candidate is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;just another tax-and-spendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Liberal or New Democrat. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of many catch phrases mouthed by neocons on talk radio and in most daily newspapers that often goes unchallenged, as if the right capitalizes off of base emotions while the left is fumbling through the

rules of rational debate. Himelfarb, instead, turns it around. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, they are tax-and-spenders. All politicians tax and spend. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what they do: tax, spend, and reallocate,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a question of those who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

versus those who do. Even neoconservatives tax and spend. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a question on what: they tax and spend on military; progressives tax and spend on health care and social justice.â&#x20AC;? However, a recent example of a tax cut was when in 2006 newly

elected Prime Minister Stephen Harper, against the advice of most economists, cut the GST from 14 to 12 per cent. It made for a nice photo op, critics said, but also cost $14 billion a year in See TAX page 50

Province, OPP remind people what to do as bears come of out hibernation The potential for human-bear conflicts increases when there is little natural food available for bears. If this happens, black bears will search for other food sources, such as garbage and bird feed, which can draw bears to populated areas.

Strawberry breakfast parfaits with wheat berries a great way to start the day Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; This is an easy summer entertaining brunch idea. The parfaits can be made ahead to allow for relaxed and easy entertaining. Wheat berries are a true whole grain. They are loaded with nutrients; add a slight crunch and subtle nutty flavour to the parfait. Layers of luscious, creamy whipped ricotta, chewy wheat berries, slices of Ontario strawberries and maple syrup for sweetness, will have everyone endlessly dipping their spoons and clanking the bottom for more. Preparation time: 15 minutes Standing time: 12 hours Cooking time: 90 minutes Serves: 8

He said it was going to do it. But that the opposition barely pushed back â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that was the surprise. We are not just taxpayers.

We are citizens who want to act in the common good.â&#x20AC;? He called it a question of taxing fairly and spending wisely. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the conversation he eventually wants the public to swing back toward.

gressive mayors are elected in Vancouver, Edmonton and Calgary, and Halifax. New Yorkers elected a mayor who promised to increase taxes on the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wealthiest citizens. Republicans are doing a rethink on where the Tea Party has led them, which is out of touch with the majority of disenfranchised voters. US President Barak Obama

talks a lot about equality; federal Liberal leader Justin Trudeau talks about the middle class, but also about inequality; federal NDP leader Thomas Mulcair would roll back corporate tax cuts and possibly increase capital gains taxes, though he vowed to freeze individual income taxes. Himelfarb thinks many 2015 municipal elections will be focused

on equality issues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel like there is something happening out there.â&#x20AC;? He said more and more citizens are catching on to the fallacy of the rugged individual fighting the world to satisfy his greed for material gain. Even the English philosopher Thomas Hobbes, a conservative who famously said the whole is worth more than the

sum of its parts, would have trouble identifying with todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s neoconservative, Himelfarb said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not clear what they are trying to conserve,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Look, we are more than consumers and taxpayers with no obligations to one another. We are citizens figuring out what kind of future we want and are trying to build it.â&#x20AC;?
