News – It was a diverse group of service providers that met at the North Grenville Municipal Centre on Wednesday, May 14. Kicking off Police Week the Police Services Board called a meeting to introduce a new crime prevention program and launch a North Grenville Safety and Wellness Council. “The goal of this first meeting was to try to develop a constituency for the ‘council’ idea. “So far it’s largely been the brain-child of the police services board. This was a first attempt to introduce the idea to people who will be needed to populate the council, and see if there is a groundswell of interest in it; enough to take the organizing to the next level,” said Hugh Russell, community justice advocate and the meeting’s moderator. Among the attendees were representatives from the North Grenville BIA, the Social Development Council, the United Way, Victim Services, Mental Health, the youth group, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Tri County Addictions and Home Support. The meeting was hosted by the North Grenville Police Services Board represented by Bruce Harrison, chair and municipal representative; Don Sherritt, vice chair and provincial appointee; and was attended by North Augusta, Merrickville and Cornwall Police Service Board representatives, in addition to North Grenville Mayor David Gordon and Coun. Terry Butler.

Kicking off Police Week, the North Grenville Police Board, organized a workshop-type meeting with a wide range of community stakeholders to launch a new policing model.

The two-hour meeting didn’t quite get to the meat of the initiative, because every attendee was invited to introduce themselves and their agency and voice their concerns. “I encouraged our hosts (Bruce Harrison and Don Sherritt) to let the people hear each other; as a first step in trying to develop a constituency for this ‘council’ idea.

ing that society seemed to view sexual assault differently from other crimes. “If you run a red light, there is no doubt that you (the red-light runner) are at fault,� Lee told the students. “If you are sexually assaulted, it is no longer clear if you are worthy of being a victim.�

Miss representation Lee was speaking at a conference supported not only by Interval House, but also by the Perth and Almonte Civitan Clubs. Funding was also provided by the Perth and District Community Foundation, and the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital. “There was an overwhelming desire for us to be able to point out how media and society influence messaging to all genders about how they should behave, react, dress,� Lee said. “We are being socialized that a woman is not seen as a human being, it is what she looks like,� that matters. The day started off with word association, with Lee shouting out, “Slut,� and the students responding with “whore.�

“I said, ‘ghetto,’ they said, ‘poor,’� she said, as another example. The conference was a way to “challenge them to shift the way we think about things.� One student told the crowd that she had already started to challenge society’s accepted gender norms. “I don’t believe in gender roles,� said Hayley Fortier of Carleton Place High School. “I don’t believe that, for a woman, you need to behave a certain way. I am not defined by my gender. I am a human with a soul. That’s all that defines me. It’s not your gender that makes you who you are. It is your soul.� A large “Slut Walk� banner had been rolled out on the back table for participants to add their voice to the issue, with many students writing down their feelings. “Just because you dress a way does not mean you deserve anything bad,� wrote Alicia Ray. “Dress how you want,� wrote Nicole Davies. “Be who you are. Stay strong! Be proud to be a woman! You are beautiful, no matter what.� “You know who you are and what type of person you are and that’s all that matters,� wrote Claudia Sarbutt, a student from the T.R. Leger School in Carleton Place.

News – The head of Interval House of Lanark County has defended coupling the county’s first-ever “Slut Walkâ€? with the annual “Take Back the Nightâ€? rally. “We didn’t feel like doing a Slut Walk just on its own,â€? said Erin Lee, the executive director of the women’s shelter, during an interview at the Perth Civitan Club hall on Wednesday, May 14, during a conference for teenagers on building positive female images. “We are a community where change happens slowly.â€? The joint walk will take place on Sept. 26 in front of the Carleton Place town hall, but even the “Take Back the Nightâ€? rally took a long time to reach the level of acceptance that it has in the county, said Lee. “It took a long time to get people on side,â€? she said. “It takes time.â€? During the inaugural walk, about 75 walkers showed up. Now, more than 200 walkers assemble every fall on Mill Street. “If you just go ahead and do a slut walk, people won’t understand it.â€? Plans are afoot to for a stand-alone “Slut Walk,â€? in the summer of 2015, which will be “about saying ‘I can dress as I want‌and no one should be able to sexually assault me.â€? The “Slut Walk,â€? phenomena has its origins in Toronto in 2011. The Excalibur student newspaper at York University reported that, on Jan. 24 of that year, a member of the Toronto Police Service was heard to suggest that women could avoid sexual assaults by not dressing like a “slutâ€? during a campus safety information session at the Osgoode Hall law school at York. The comments then spawned a “Slut Walkâ€? where women and their supporters intentionally dressed provocatively that spring. For the Carleton Place walk though, “we would encourage people participating in the Slut Walk (to dress) in a way that represents them. If drag is that, be that. Dress however you want,â€? Lee said. She added that a sexual predator, who is on the hunt for a woman to assault, is going to be looking for any opportunity to commit his crime – not looking for someone wearing revealing clothing. “How do we deal with predators, people who are on the street?â€? asked Lee. She added that women not only need to be told how not to get raped, but that men should also be told the message

Cyclists, walkers, local government to ride into Active Transportation Summit May 29-30 tlepack@perfprint.ca

Community – Active transportation will re-define how communities are shaped, in the future, to ensure that everyone can maintain a good quality of life. The first-ever Eastern Ontario Active Transportation summit is set for May 29 and 30 at Almonte Old Town Hall, to showcase ideas and success stories about making communities more bike-able and walk-able through trails, sidewalks, parks and pathways. Jeff Mills, co-ordinator community development at Mills Community Support, thinks it is time to change what a complete street is. “The time has come, in hopefully age-friendly communities, where we are designing roads that work for all road users and we are not designing roads for cars. Roads are there for a reason, to move people,” said Mills, one of the organizers of the summit. “Some of those people are not in cars, they are trying to get across the street in a walker, and trying to cycle to school because we keep telling kids they need to be more active.” Mills thinks people need to re-think how and where people build roads. “In many countries because of the cost of fuel you don’t even think about getting into your car unless it’s a long distance, they plan for that quality of life,” said Mills. “Roads are the connecting life blood of the community, they

should work for more than just cars.” The summit has been organized by a number of local organizations who have an interest in active transportation including: the counties of Lanark and Renfrew, including Healthy Communities Partnership, Leeds Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit, Mills Community Support, the Town of Mississippi Mills, Mississippi Mills Bicycle Month, Renfrew County Physical Activities Network, Canada Walks, Ontario by Bike and Share the Road. Danielle Shewfelt, public health nurse in the healthy living and development department with the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit thinks the agenda is large enough that it will interest a number of different people. “For business people we want to say making your business friendly to walkers and cyclists is going to be a benefit to you, you’re going to get more people coming to your business,” said Shewfelt. “For the residents it’s really about having a safe and healthy environment to walk and bike from one place to the other.” Mississippi Mills Coun. John Edwards thinks it is a unique opportunity for council members because active transportation is a key part of its community official plan. “This kind of thing is bringing ideas from outside our municipality to eastern Ontario. People from all

across Ontario that can bring ideas of how we can actually implement active transportation in our municipality,” said Edwards. “We are also going to do a very expensive master transportation plan for Mississippi Mills and active transportation is going to be a key part of what the consultants are going to do.” They think they are only going to deal with trucks and cars but we want them to look at where are the bicycles in Mississippi Mills are going to go,” he said. Shewfelt adds that it is important for local municipalities to attend because they are the ones who control the purse strings. “It’s a good opportunity to get together with the other players, residents and businesses to see which part each of us play in making that happen,” said Shewfelt. “They (municipalities) are the ones who are in charge of the budget and the design and all of those aspects so we really need to partner so they can take full advantage of what has been done.” There is a wide array of speakers at the event covering a number of different topics. On May 29, the keynote speaker is Marlaine Koehler, executive director of the Waterfront Regeneration Trust, who has spent the past 15 years developing and managing the innovative partnership that has made a dramatic contribution towards the regeneration of the Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River waterfront. Also speaking that day are: Sue Shikaze from Building Capacity for Rural Transportation, Kate Hall, Walk Friendly Ontario, Mike Dwyer, Designing Trails with Nature in Mind, Don Palmer, Community Bike Share programs, and Nancy Smith

Green Party candidate supports merged school boards, carbon tax installed by your neighbours.” Climate change is an issue that has long been a major issue for his party, and he points out that the effects are being felt right here in Lanark County. “Climate change is starting to affect our ability to grow food and sustain ourselves,” he said of the riding. “We are at a tipping point with the climate. When people in Lanark County can’t tap maple syrup, that’s when people will see it.” After the drought of 2012, restrictions were already being placed on tapping, he said, and this past winter, with its brutal weather, has already put a strain on maple syrup production. However, he took incumbent MPP Randy Hillier to task for his skepticism

Cam Mather for electricity. While he commended the Liberals’ Green Energy Act, he noted that, for him, it did not go far enough. “If you had put a price on carbon (instead), people would not have put up solar panels,” he said. “they would have let the market decide.” His party is proposing putting the money raised from a tax on carbon emissions into a trust fund, “so that the government cannot get its hands on it. We will even put it into the hands of a third party,” if need be, he said. Once the money is in the account, each Ontarian would get a “dividend cheque,” which, it is hoped, would then be spent on carbon-neutral heating like wood-burning stoves, geothermal heating, and the like. “We are letting the marketplace decide,” Mather said. “Even Conservatives will love that!” he said with a laugh. “It makes you less reliant on government.” He practices what he preaches. “I live off of the grid, but I live a typical, North American lifestyle,” he said. He also pointed to ground-source heat pumps and other efficient heating methods as improvements that can save money and resources – and which can be sourced locally. “That (heat pumps) are not something you can import from China…those are

Lanark County Getaway Contest winner announced News – Lanark County Tourism is thrilled to announce the winner of the Lanark County Getaway Contest – a couple from Edmonton, Alberta! Steve and Angela were randomly selected as the winners of a $1,000 trip to the Maple Syrup Capital of Ontario, simply by choosing their ideal vacation in Lanark County. “The concept of the contest was to have people choose their own adventure in Lanark County,” explains Lanark County Tourism manager Marie White. “We have tools on our website at www. lanarkcountytourism.ca that give people the chance to plan their trip by choosing where they would like to stay, eat and play. Designing the custom tour acted as a ballot to enter the contest.” Steve says he and his wife stumbled on the contest while looking to relocate to Lanark County and enjoy the cottage lifestyle. Steve is seeking a change of pace and wants to run his own business. At the same time, Angela discovered family connections nearby, and is looking forward to a reunion with

a long-lost sister. Steve and Angela will work with Lanark County Tourism experts to maximize the value of their $1,000 getaway to their preferred restaurants, accommodations and attractions. The contest was offered in collaboration with travel writer Lucy Izon and the Ottawa Citizen. The winner was selected on May 12. “Just because the contest is over doesn’t mean you can’t create your own Lanark County getaway,” White adds. “There is always something happening in Lanark County, no matter whether you are interested in the outdoors, theatre, music, historic sites, or delectable dining experience.” You can check it out by visiting www. lanarkcountytourism.ca. Select “Plan Your Trip,” then follow the instructions to create your very own custom tour, complete with maps and directions. You can also call 1-888-4-LANARK.

While he is realistic about his party’s chances, he remains adamant that “there is an alternative to the traditional three parties.” Personally, “I have been selfemployed since 1987 so I am a perpetual optimist, but I am a realist.” One of his ventures is a communitysupported agricultural farm at his Tamworth home, which now helps feed about 40 families. The families pay into the system, and receive a basket of vegetables and berries for about 16 weeks each year. (This is the second in our ongoing series of articles profiling candidates in the Lanark, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington riding in the run-up to the Thursday, June 12 provincial election).

News – The Green Party candidate for Lanark, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington is defending his party’s platform, which includes a proposal to merge the public and Catholic school systems. During a telephone interview from his Tamworth home, near Kingston, on Wednesday, May 14, Cam Mather stated that the proposed policy – which has been dismissed by the other three mainline parties – would save not only taxpayer money, but also the environment too. “Right now, we have this crazy system where we are subsidizing one system that is, essentially, private,” he said of the Catholic system. Ontario Green Party leader Mike Schreiner had floated the idea at his party’s platform launch the day before in Toronto, saying it would save the province at least $1.2 billion a year. But for Mather, it goes beyond the money, since both school boards would often have two buses running along, essentially, the same routes, when a unified school board could pick up the same children, on the same route, with just one bus. While then-Progressive Conservative party leader John Tory discovered what a live wire the education issue could be in the 2007 provincial vote, a year later, federal Liberal leader Stephane Dion discovered just how volatile ideas like a carbon tax could be with the electorate. But for Mather, these ideas are part of what makes his party the true conscience in Ontario politics. “Isn’t it wonderful that we have a party that has the intestinal fortitude to do that?” he asked. “I’m not concerned about upsetting people any more.” The environmentally-minded Greens once more have a carbon tax front and centre in their platform, which flew in the 2011 vote under the rhyming motto that the party would tax people “on what they burn, not what they earn.” On the carbon tax, Mather admitted that he understood that people were upset about rising energy costs, especially

over climate change. “That’s Randy’s business,” he said, at first, but, later in the conversation, noted that “97 per cent of scientists believe that the train is about to go over the cliff. The scary thing is that Randy is siding with the three per cent. To say that this is something that we can ignore…is frustrating.” Mather won his party’s nomination about a year ago, and while the party is focused on following the example of their federal cousins, in getting their leader, elected to the House of Commons through a seat in British Columbia, the Ontario Greens are focused on getting Schreiner elected in the Guelph area.

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

Children’s summer camp’s annual open house June 21 DEAR EDITOR: Much has been written about the sedentary life style that Canadian children have adopted with their iPads, iPods, iPhones, etc. Concerns have been raised about the “nature deficit” that young people are experiencing. What may not be known is that there exists nearby a little slice of heaven where children escape technology and are immersed in a close knit, active and social community close to nature, where they are accepted as they are. It’s called Camp Lau-Ren, a children’s residential summer camp of the United Church of Canada where all children are welcome. Located just 10 kilometres west of Deep River on Highway 17W at 210 Lau-Ren Rd. in the Township of Laurentian Hills, Camp Lau-Ren offers two,

three and six night co-ed camps for children aged six to 15, including a three-night family camp night for all ages. Lau-Ren is accredited by the Ontario Camps Association. It’s not too late to send a kid to camp. Visit www.camplau-ren.com for more information and come to our annual open house on Saturday, June 21 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for a free barbecued hotdog, dessert, and s’mores. You can tour the site, see a camper’s cabin, check the beach and enjoy songs and skits around a campfire. We hope to see you there! Bruce Patterson Secretary, Camp Lau-Ren board Carleton Place

COMMENTARY

Voting is a right Editorial – More and more of those colourful election signs continue to dot the landscape throughout Lanark, Leeds and Grenville and serve as a constant reminder that yes, another provincial election is upon us. Elections are arguably one of the most exciting times for a newspaper. There are candidates to profile and meetings to attend, all with the goal of providing the public with the information to make a more informed decision on Thursday, June 12. The right to vote is one that we should all take very seriously. It’s our way to make change happen and try to make a difference. However, that number has steadily been on the decline since 1990. According to Elections Ontario, voter turnout in the last provincial election in 2011 stood at just 48.2 per cent, compared to 2007’s figure of 52.1 per cent. Back in 1995, 63 per cent of eligible voters cast their ballots. Why is that? Is it the aging population who doesn’t believe their vote matters, or perhaps the younger generation, who have just earned the right to vote, isn’t engaged enough with provincial politics? If it’s the latter, the problem is surely to get worse and voter turnout will continue to decline. With the Internet and social media, information is more readily available than ever before so there’s no excuse for young people to be complacent about politics, whether it be federal, provincial or municipal. Those who choose not to vote, shouldn’t be able to complain about the outcome afterwards either. We are all given an amazing gift in our ability to vote, let’s make sure that on June 12, we use it.

The minister was a bit like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde Lifestyle – The minister, I thought, was like two different people. I had an unbelievable fear of him when he was in church delivering what seemed to be an endless sermon with words that were completely above my head. I had no idea what he was talking about, and when we left the service to go to our Sunday school class, I lived in dread that the Sunday school teacher would ask me what I had learned that day from the sermon. Thankfully she was high on the Beatitudes and the Psalms, and that was usually what our lesson was about. The minister was a whale of a man, and when he walked down the middle of the church to get to the pulpit, his shoes squeaked like fury, which Emerson said meant they hadn’t been paid for. How he knew that bit of information was beyond me. By the time the minister had climbed into the pulpit which was a round carved wood affair high above the pews, he was panting like he was going to take his last breath, and winter and summer, the sweat poured off his face in little rivulets. He frowned a lot, and I always thought he was angry with the lot of us, or that he knew that some of us had committed

some horrible sin. And to emphasize a point, he pounded the rail of the pulpit with his bible that I was sure would one day fly out of his hand and hit me square on the head since we sat in the front pew, a few feet away. His wife, whom Mother said was a saint...a pure saint, sat ramrod straight, looking neither left nor right. Through perfect planning, Sunday school always ended at the exact time the last hymn was being sung in the church. Then we children marched back into the church, standing at the door where we were expected to shake hands with the minister. This scared the living starch out of me, convinced that he could read my mind and he would know every evil thought I had ever had in my head about bad Marguirite, and know ever sin I had ever committed. I couldn’t wait to get in the buggy and get back home to the farm. And often then, I would see another side to our minister. I wasn’t sure if it was part of his duties as our spiritual leader, or if he just liked a good meal occasionally, but we could always count on a pastoral visit at least once every two weeks when the summer weather came.

a buggy, and an old nag of a horse that was much like our poor old Harry with the heaves. You could have walked in our lane faster than the minister’s horse pulling the buggy! And he always came at our dinnertime at the noon hour. Mother would pump his hand, welcome him in, and my sister Audrey, without even being asked, would scrunch up the plates on the table, and make room for another place. Mother made no effort to tidy things up, or make the meal more fancy. We didn’t even get out the dishes that had come in puffed wheat. The only change was Mother sat between my sister Audrey and me, leaving the end of the table for the Minister. Father, of course, sat where he always did, at the other end. And instead of Father saying Grace, the minister, on Mother’s invitation said News Editors: Laurie Weir, Joe Morin, Ashley Kulp REPORTERS: Howaida Sorour, Tara Gesner, Desmond Devoy, Tiffany Lepack, Laura Armstrong DISTRIBUTION: Lori Sommerdyk, 613-283-3182 ,ext. 138 CLASSIFIED/REGIONAL ROUNDUP 613-283-3182 Judy Michaelis x122 email: jmichaelis@theemc.ca Cheryl Code x133 email: cheryl.code@metroland.com Fax: 613-283-5909

the blessing, which was long and purposeful. Then I would see an entirely different man from the one I saw in the Lutheran church on Sunday. He and Father told jokes, slapping the table with the palm of their hands, and all the time, he was amply lading his plate with seconds and even third helpings of everything before him, which pleased Mother beyond words. Even a visitor the stature of the minister, didn’t stop Father from pouring out his tea into his saucer to cool it off, and then drinking it. And as soon as the meal was over, Father got up from the table, minister or not, and headed back out to the fields. Always, I knew what was going to happen next. Audrey would be sent to the smoke house and the chicken coop. She would come back with a roast and a link or two of sausages, and a small basket of fresh eggs. Everett would, without asking, have cornered a fowl, pushed it squawking into a grain sack, and everything would be put in the minister’s buggy. The minister would pump Mother’s hand, ruffle my hair, tell Audrey again how she was growing into a fine young ADVERTISING SALES: ADVERTISING SALES MANAGER Andrea McMurtry 613-283-3182 x169 SALES: Cheryl Johnston, Sharon Sinfield, Kathy Perreault, Kevin Hoover, Jamie Rae-Gomes Email: emcsales@perfprint.ca Fax: 613-283-9988

woman, and my three brothers that he would see them in church, and then with great effort he would climb into the buggy, and the old horse without any direction from his owner, would turn in the yard and head out the lane. Audrey and I would help Mother redd up the kitchen and she would tell us how poor the minister was, and how little he was paid, and that often he and his wife didn’t have enough money to buy food, and how they would rely on the generosity of the members of the Lutheran church to survive. I knew the Depression was all around us, but I didn’t know anyone out in the country who didn’t have enough food for their table. I would watch the buggy disappear into the farthest reaches of the lane, and I would think again how the minister was like two different people. The stern, nononsense man in the pulpit on a Sunday, and then there was the man who could laugh and mingle with the common folk around a kitchen table.

Perthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Studio Theatre held a Crazy Dinner fundraiser May 10 where diners ordered from a mystery menu. Above, some of the dozens of volunteers who helped make the dinner a huge success.

Studio Theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Crazy Dinner a wild success Arts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Was it crazy to think that people would support a community theatre fundraiser called a Crazy Dinner? Sure, crazy like a fox... Every single ticket was sold for the Studio Theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Crazy Dinner on May 10, thanks to tremendous organization, enthusiastic volunteers, and a town that simply loves its community theatre. The concept for the meal was hard to resist: diners ordered from a tantalizing mystery menu that kept them guessing, but always led to something delicious â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Caesar salad, gazpacho soup, salisbury steak, salmon, chicken, vegetarian lasagna, and four different delectable desserts. Entertainment was provided by the cast of the theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upcoming Little Women, The Musical,

directed by C. Lee Bates. Songs included â&#x20AC;&#x153;Here Aloneâ&#x20AC;? (sung by Julie Kevan), â&#x20AC;&#x153;Could You?â&#x20AC;? (Barb Guthrie, Courtney Mason), â&#x20AC;&#x153;Five Foreverâ&#x20AC;? (Courtney Mason, Kyle Booth, Lindsay Rewi, Mary Hills, Emma Houlahan) and â&#x20AC;&#x153;More Than I Amâ&#x20AC;? (Justin Hills, Mary Hills). There were also plenty of raffle items and door prizes, generously donated by local businesses, including a deluxe gas barbecue from Home Hardware, dinner for two from the Stone Cellar, a beautiful Gift basket from Julia Egener, an original Simon Koo Painting from Ute von Schall, and a restored Remembrance clock from Garnet Carswell. The food was subsidized by a generous donation from Barnabeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Your Independent Grocer.

Jean and Derek Cooke, the driving force behind the evening, have hosted Crazy Dinners many times before, but this was their biggest event ever â&#x20AC;&#x201C; dinner for 120! Obviously a lot of organization and creativity went into the planning, along with a dedicated team of servers and kitchen staff. When the last dessert had been enjoyed and the final prize awarded, more than $5,000 had been raised for the great work of Perthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s community theatre. So a huge thank you goes out to everyone who attended, donated prizes, and worked so hard to make this event the crazy success that it was. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to see what next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fundraiser will be! Submitted by the Studio Theatre.

Part One of a Four-Part Series

Fundraising key for local hospices to aid families of palliative patients By LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com

Inside Ottawa Valley, comprised of The Carleton Place-Almonte Canadian Gazette, The Kemptville Advance, The Perth Courier and The Smiths Falls Record News, takes a look at palliative care services offered in Lanark Leeds and Grenville. Over the next four weeks, we’ll examine aspects of palliative care, like funding, caregivers’ roles, and helping loved ones through their final stages of life. This first installment talks about the palliative care services that are available. News – National Hospice Palliative Care Week may have kicked off the month of May with a variety of fundraisers, but money is needed all year long, not just during the spring. These fundraisers are an important part of palliative care services, because without the support of the communities, there would be limited services available to patients and their families as they live out their final days with dignity.

Palliative or end-of-life services in Canada have traditionally been provided at home until the care becomes so complicated or overwhelming that admission to hospital is required. “During the course of illness it is not unusual for a person to seek treatment in emergency rooms and/or to be admitted to hospital a number of times until they reach a point when they cannot be released due to the severity of illness or inability of their family to care for them at home,” said Doug Burt, member of the Community Home Support Lanark County board of directors. While some Canadians die at home, the majority of them spend their last days in hospital. This results in a great deal of stress for patients and families as well as unnecessary use of costly hospital beds for people who could be better managed at home or in a hospice. Smiths Falls, Perth and parts of Almonte/Carleton Place are located in the South East Local Health Integration Network (SELHIN) one of 14 LHINs in Ontario. SELHIN covers a huge

area from Prince Edward County in the South to the Hastings Highlands in the North and East to Edwardsburgh, Innisville, Montague, etc. Interestingly, Lanark County is split between SELHIN and Champlain LHIN which covers other parts of Carleton Place, Almonte and Kemptville and necessitates special arrangements between the two LHINs for some services. Within the communities and counties of SELHIN and Champlain LHIN, the need for palliative and other support services has long been understood. Consequently, communities acted to establish a variety of services. Some of these have been recognized and funded to some extent by the LHINs. Municipalities and county councils have provided funds for some services as well. Within the Perth and Smiths Falls corner of SELHIN, Community Home Support, Lanark County (CHSLC) provides a number of services including three palliative care services: the Volunteer Hospice Visiting Service, the Day Hospice and Bereavement Services.

Interlocking concrete is also a great choice for our harsh Canadian winters. The paver units’ joints help absorb any sort of frost-related movement, meaning that it is freeze and thaw resistant. With interlocking concrete, worrying about pavement damage is a thing of the past, and that’s particularly great considering how aesthetically pleasing interlocking concrete can be.

With some variations in the LHIN funding, this is the case for all hospice services across SELHIN and generally for all Ontario hospice services. While these programs are only partly funded by SELHIN it must be noted that SELHIN provides substantial funding to the Community Care Access Centres (CCAC) to provide nursing and personal support worker (PSW) support to clients in their homes as well as some equipment and medical supplies. These services combined with the hospice services provided by volunteers are intended to help clients remain at home and out of hospital as long as possible. The vast majority of palliative clients express the wish to be able to stay at home and to die surrounded by their loved ones. Over the past years many communities have looked at the role residential hospices play in some countries, for example in the United Kingdom where there is a longstanding tradition of

Inc.

It’s one of the most economical pavement options out there, especially when it comes to long-term care. That’s partly because interlocking pavement is low maintenance. That ease is something you can appreciate right from day one as interlocking concrete can be used immediately after it is installed. It is also reusable, too, which is great if you have to remove it to fix a pavement problem or to install utilities. With interlocking concrete, you can simply remove the pavement and reinstall it when the work is completed.

There are nine community hospice organizations across SELHIN. These hospice organizations have been achieving positive results by providing essential assistance to people with life-limiting and palliative diagnoses and to their families. These services include trained hospice volunteers who go to homes to provide respite opportunities for caregivers, usually a family member. The day hospices are places where clients can go to share their experiences with others having similar challenges. Day programs provide fun activities as well as invaluable psychosocial support to the clients and their families. Some clients say these programs provide them with an opportunity to forget they are sick. Most hospice services also provide bereavement services. Approximately 45 per cent of the cost of the palliative care programs provided by CHSLC is funded by SELHIN, the rest comes from the generosity of the community which recognizes the importance of these services.

Part One of a Four-Part Series

Hub establishes hospice

Funding infusion Community – Tay River Reflections in Perth hosted a fashion show for Lanark County’s hospice palliative care services’ home support program last month. The $2,000 donation will help with general expenses, said Christa Dales Donnelly, representative of the hospice services. She is flanked by Patti Boyd, operations manager at the Tay River Train ‘N Transform (gym) and Dr. Manuela Joannou, owner of the spa and gym. Tay River Reflections is looking to host a similar annual event as a palliative care fundraiser.

HOSPICE From page 18

residential hospices for patients in their final weeks or days rather than admitting these patients to costly hospital beds. Across Canada there are many communities that have decided the needs of their loved ones are best met by community-based residential hospices once care at home is no longer feasible. There are some successful residential hospices, usually in larger towns and cities where there is a large base of citizens. However, Canada is made up of many small rural communities where it is difficult to find the funds to build and maintain residential hospices. Residential hospices are generally not funded and must depend entirely on fundraising. For the past several years, hospice organizations have held many meetings among themselves and with their respective LHIN to make a case for the

funding of residential hospice beds. “A major stumbling block is the inability of small rural communities to demonstrate that a two or three-bed hospice is cost effective,” said Burt. Thus few communities have been brave enough to attempt to raise the funds to establish a residence and then to go to their communities every year to fundraise the approximately $150,000 required to keep going. One or two have accepted this challenge. Pilot Hospice A bright spot was the agreement of SELHIN to approve a pilot project in Picton where Hospice Prince Edward opened a two-bed facility in August 2013. The intention is to evaluate the hospice after a year or so to determine the extent to which its existence contributes to a reduction in the occupancy of hospital palliative care beds. “There is no doubt that patients and

clients who have experienced the support provided in a family-centred residential hospice achieve a level of psychosocial wellbeing few can experience in a busy hospital,” Burt said. Should the experience of Hospice Prince Edward produce positive results for small residential hospices then other communities and the SELHIN may be able to explore establishing other hospices. Regardless of the funding level for hospice palliative care services the programs would not be possible without the dedication and loyalty to clients provided by volunteers. They make these programs possible and deserve our support. Our next article will talk about the role and importance of volunteers and will touch on their training and the safeguards in place to avoid caregiver burnout.

News – The Hub Hospice Palliative Care in Almonte is quickly gaining ground towards its goal of becoming part of the Champlain Local Health Integration Network (LHIN). The concept for the registered charity began back in February 2012, when Almonte Community Coordinators (The Hub) began envisioning a palliative care volunteer visitor service, to meet the needs of residents from Carleton Place and Mississippi Mills to Renfrew. “People are dying at home all the time and it’s a gap in our health care system in our area,” said the Hub Hospice’s Glenda Jones. “From Mississippi Mills to Renfrew, there is no good network in home care – nothing.” The project began with a group of volunteers and has grown to include a dedicated board of directors: chair Christine Bois; vice-chair Shirley Deugo; secretary Glenda Jones; treasurer Gary Pollock; and directors Jane Henderson, Eloise Caverson, Brenda Hurrle, Diane James, Pat Martin, Helen McIntosh and Peggy McPhail. They began offering their services in September 2013 and hired Allison Griffith, RN, as co-ordinator of volunteer services. She will be responsible for co-ordinating efforts of trained hospice volunteers and ensuring they are directed where they are needed. Currently, the Hub Hospice offers support to those living in their own homes, a long-term care facility or retirement home through emotional and

spiritual areas (trained volunteers listen and provide encouragement and companionship to clients and caregivers); and also direct aid to caregivers, to allow them to take a much-needed break. Public education opportunities are also available and there are plans to develop grief and bereavement services, including access to resources, referrals to community services and peer support, in the future. Its vision statement states that the service will “collaborate in the co-ordination of palliative care services in the Mississippi Mills and North Lanark area. The location of direct client services will include those settings which are considered as home by the client. Future consideration will be given to the establishment of a free-standing hospice and to bereavement support services.” The Hub Hospice is becoming more visible in the communities in which they serve as well, holding a number of fundraisers, including participation in the national Hike for Hospice for Palliative Care each year. For more information about the Hub Hospice Palliative Care, visit www. hubhospice.com or call 613-406-7020. Information on how to donate and applications to become volunteers can be found there.

Lanark County won’t be caught off guard if an emergency hits By TARA GESNER tgesner@perfprint.ca

News – Three years ago on Feb. 22 an earthquake measuring 6.3 on the Richter magnitude scale struck Christchurch, New Zealand, causing widespread damage and killing 185 people. Could something like this ever happen in Lanark County? In June 2010 a 5.0 magnitude earthquake rocked the Ottawa Valley area just before 1:45 p.m. The epicenter was approximately 60 kilometres northnortheast of Ottawa. In the nation’s capital, alarmed office workers poured onto the streets, putting themselves in danger of falling glass or other debris. As a result, the city changed its policies on how people should respond should another quake strike. Workers instead should have taken shelter inside. Joint operation On May 1 Lanark County municipalities participated in the annual joint emergency management exercise, entitled Operation Earthquake 2014. Moderated by community officer Philippe Geoffrion, Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management, the all-day assembly was held in Carleton Place at the Neelin Street Community Centre/arena (upper hall). In addition to Lanark County representatives, staff from Beckwith, Carleton Place, Drummond/North Elmsley, Lanark Highlands, Mississippi Mills, Montague, Perth, Smiths Falls and Tay Valley participated. An event such as Operation Earthquake 2014 presents an opportunity to evaluate the abilities of area municipalities to respond to a real emergency of this kind. Furthermore, it enhances the analytical process and promotes communications and media release procedures between the municipalities, external agencies and the public during a crisis situation. “Each time we meet there is always something new for us to learn and to share with other groups,” Duncan Rogers, Carleton Place’s community emergency management coordinator (CEMC) said. The operation fulfilled the yearly exercise requirements of Ontario Regulation 380/04, which establishes the minimum standards for emergency management programs required by municipalities and provincial ministries, and supports the requirement in the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act for mandatory emergency management programs. Material presented During the day’s morning session, attendees heard how the Almonte

Amateur Radio Club (AARC) would be useful during disasters, as well as the importance of land use planning in emergency management. Reception and inquiry and evacuation centres were discussed, and the roles of the emergency information officer, director of roads and public works, community emergency management coordinator, chief administrative officer and Lanark County fire coordinator. Additional information was provided on Community Emergency Response Volunteer (CERV) and the Ontario Disaster Relief Assistance Program, which offers financial assistance following natural disasters. After lunch, following a video of the aftermath of the Christchurch earthquake, the Operation Earthquake 2014 scenario commenced. A 6.0 magnitude earthquake hit on April 28, 2014 at 3:15 a.m., according to the National Research Institute in Ottawa. The epicenter was the south side of White Lake in Mississippi Mills. Geoffrion explained the exercise involved municipal staff responding to the extensive damage in their own communities – after three days (initially) and over the next 18 months (sewer, food and water, roads and bridges, electricity, continuousness of government, etc.) “How do you plan to deal with the current situation, and what are your top three priorities?” he asked. Geoffrion told staff to “look at all possibilities and think outside the box.” “You need to think more strategically,” he said. “Look at the bigger picture.” After the Christchurch earthquake the government declared a state of national emergency, which stayed in force until April 30, more than two months. Following the exercise, comments and recommendations were gathered. A summary report will be produced by the emergency exercise planning team. Rogers thanked the annual emergency exercise planning team (Carleton Place fire chief and director of protective services Les Reynolds, Lanark Highlands fire chief Rod Black, Geoffrion and Lanark County’s emergency services coordinator Rick Hannah) for its hard work in putting the scenario together. Geoffrion and Hannah also offered thanks to all participants. In Carleton Place the primary emergency operations centre (EOC) is located in a special room upstairs at the fire/ police headquarters on Coleman Street. Council chambers inside the town hall on Bridge Street is the secondary EOC. Beckwith’s EOC is located in council chambers at the township building (9th Line). Mississippi Mills’ EOC is located inside municipal headquarters on Old Perth Road.

Smiths Falls pilot shot down during Leipzig air raid in February, 1944 By JOSH VINCENT Edited by Chris Smith and Blake Cameron

News – The following is part of a series of research papers completed by Grade 10 History students at Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute as part of the Lest We Forget program. The features focus on residents of Smiths Falls who made the supreme sacrifice for their country during World War II. Donald James Vens Dawson, Pilot Officer January 31st, 1923 – February 20th, 1944 Donald James Vens Dawson was a 21-year-old soldier who died while fighting overseas in the Second World War. He was born on January 31st, 1923 in Smiths Falls, Ontario to his mother Erma Jane Dawson and his father James Garnet Dawson. Donald had one sister; Mrs. Isabel Nadine Walker. He was never married and had no children. Donald completed elementary school at Central Public School from 1929 to 1936. He attended Smiths Falls Collegiate Institute, which he left in 1939. Donald also attended a Canadian Electronics Institute from 1940 to 1941, specializing in wireless operating. During the same time, he was employed at Borden’s Dairy as a truck driver for three months. He was also employed as an office worker in Fort Erie from 1941 until the time he enlisted February 25th, 1942. His hair was blonde in colour with hazel eyes. He lived at Fort Erie, Ontario at time of enlistment. His religion was Anglican. Donald used English as his main language, even though he could

understand French (at high school level) as well as Latin. Donald was presumed dead after he failed to return from a bombing misson in Leipzig, Germany on February 20th, 1944. In Donald’s Certificate of Medical Examination, it is seen that he had asthma and eye disease. The document also states that Donald had pneumonia at one year of age, conjunctivitis in 1935, tonsillitis in 1936, and laryngitis in 1940 for three days. He also had unusual childhood illnesses. Donald was 5 foot 10 inches and weighed 150 pounds. His eye sight and hearing were perfect. Donald’s com-

Donald Dawson. plexion was fair and his development was good. Donald’s Interviewing Officer described him as: “Average type, tall slender built, youthful appearance, and neatly dressed. Alert, intelligent, will take Canadian Legion Course. Keen to be a Pilot and fight. Industrious, sincere,

quiet, and will work hard on course.” The following was found in the Minute One Investigation in October, 1944. “The Number 77 Squadron reported that Halifax aircraft with crew of 7, failed to return from an operational attack on Leipzig. It left the base on the night

of February 19th and 20th, 1944, after which no further news was received. A telegram from I.R.C.C. quoting German information, states that Flight Sergeant Dawson was killed on February 20th, 1944. An extract from official German totenliste confirms the death of Flight Sergeant Dawson, on the night of February 20th, 1944, and states that his body could not be recovered as the aircraft lies in shallow water.” Donald was then, for all purposes, presumed to be dead. During the Big Week (a week of arguments and missions against the Nazi Party), Leipzig, Germany was one of many places that were bombed. The first attack on Leipzig was on December 4, 1943. On February 20th, 1944, bombs rained over the sky of Leipzig, containing around 2,300 tons worth of explosives. In total, around 970 people died from the bombing. After Donald James Vens Dawson’s death, his medals were entitled to his mother, Erma Jane Dawson. She received the medals in July, 1945. Erma was given Donald’s 1939 to 45 Star (awarded after a soldier has given six months of duty), Air Crew Europe Star (awarded for two months of operational flying from the United Kingdom over Europe between September 3rd, 1939 and June 5th, 1944), War Medal (awarded if a soldier worked full time for 28 days in the armed forces and merchant marines from 1939 to 1945), and the Canadian Volunteer Service Medal with clasp (awarded to any soldier who volunteered in World War II for eighteen months). Donald Dawson’s body was never recovered. He is referenced in the Runneymede Memorial in Surrey, United Kingdom.

News – During the CCHL Bogart Cup finals between the Carleton Place Canadians and Smiths Falls Bears, Carleton Place mayor Wendy LeBlanc and acting deputy mayor Ken Graham (filling in for mayor Dennis Staples) made a friendly bet. The losing team’s community would fly the respective town’s flag. Carleton Place won the series and last week, LeBlanc, above left, brought a town flag to Smiths Falls Town Hall for Staples to fly up the flagpole. Not only did Staples offer his best wishes and congratulations to the Canadians, but so did the coaches and players on the Smiths Falls Bears.

Beth Donovan Hospice offers support with variety of programs

Dignity, compassion and care The Beth Donovan Hospice received its level 2 accreditation certificate from HPCO. From left: Laura Smith, volunteer and client services; Dawn Rodger, executive director; and Anne Langlois financial services. The Champlain LHIN is one of 14 not-for-profit corporations that works with local health providers and community members to determine the health service priorities of our regions. As LHINs, they plan, integrate and fund local health services, including: hospitals, community care access centres, community support services, long-term care, mental health and addictions services and community health centres. Beth Donovan Hospice is in a position of mature growth undertaking an expansion of its current hospice community programs by adding critical resources to directly serve clients and their families. This enhancement includes the long awaited day hospice program, and the much needed expansion of grief and bereavement counselling services. Both services are provided without cost to the client. Fundraising continues to be an important part of day-to-day activities of the hospice. Striving to be creative and innovative with its events, the Beth Donovan Hospice concentrates on four experiences: Bowl a thon, Chillin’ n’ Grillin, Hike for Hospice and the Fall Extravaganza. The partnership with the Kempt-

ville District Hospital went a long way towards helping the BDH support its growth. “It provided us with an opportunity to work more closely with hospital front line staff,” said Rodger. Along the way the BDH used partnership experience to develop its business plan for a residential hospice and to firm up the referral process. “We are grateful to the Kemptville District Hospital for their invaluable support,” said Rodger. The day hospice program started May 1, 2014. The program will run for one day each week in the lower level of St. John’s United Church in Kemptville. The day includes a light lunch, activities, therapeutic treatments on a rotational basis, and a time that encourages socialization and sharing in a safe environment to be with like individuals while providing much needed respite for the family. The grief and bereavement counselling services provided through the hospice two days each week is conducted by a professional counsellor with experience in grief/bereavement and post-traumatic stress disorder. The increase in hours within the community service is expected to return imme-

The late Dr. Larry Librach, who died last year of pancreatic cancer, a champion of palliative care, sums up nicely what the hospice is committed to, “People want to be at home, to have

a choice in the setting where they’re going to die. They want to have some independence around decision making,” he said. “And I think we want to be free of pain and symptoms as much as possible.”

News – Often a community is measured by its infrastructure of healthcare and resources. North Grenville is a vibrant rural community that is resource rich when it comes to community. There is a community mindedness here that is above all, along with many valuable community support organizations, including the Beth Donovan Hospice (BDH). BDH is just one of many rural hospices located in Ontario committed to providing quality care while enhancing comfort, dignity, choice and quality of life to their clients. Hospice is referred to as a philosophy of care that attends to the emotional and spiritual needs of an individual as well as the palliative side of pain and symptom management that is managed through a clinical team. For more than 22 years the BDH has been going strong, most recently serving 146 families in fiscal year 2013/14, building on the achievements of previous years. “It is interesting to reflect on how the hospice has matured over the last five years always striving to be a valuable contributor to creating a world that works for everyone,” said Dawn Rodger, executive director. “We work to move beyond the understanding of our services primarily being related to death or dying. The emphasis is on life, not death.” Over the years the hospice has operated on minimal base provincial funding through the Champlain Local Health Integration Network (LHIN). In the past, increases were approximately 1.5 to 2 per cent annually which proved to be a challenge for the hospice with the increase in need for services which wasn’t reflective of the demand. In the fall of 2013, a collaborative funding proposal including Beth Donovan Hospice, Kemptville District Hospital, and the Champlain Community Care Access Centre, (CCAC), resulted in an increase in base funding from approximately $96,000 to $235,000 as the province recognized the need for additional assistance for community support organizations, putting more hands on care back into community. The funds to help make the work at Beth Donovan Hospice possible originate primarily from the Champlain LHIN and generous community donations. The LHIN is a health delivery organization created in 2006 by the Ontario government.

diate benefits to clients with post-traumatic stress and other psychological and physical illnesses related to the suffering and death of a loved one. The hospice will also be conducting specialty grief groups in the future, such as loss of a loved one due to suicide, loss of a child, loss of spouse and loss of sibling. Beth Donovan Hospice also provides home visits, operates an equipment lending program, respite, as well as outreach education sessions for workplaces to assist employers in supporting critical front line staff in the prevention of compassion fatigue, or to support those who are grieving the death of a staff member. BDH has been providing physical, spiritual and psychosocial supports to clients with terminal and life limiting illnesses within the North Grenville and surrounding rural areas including Manotick, North Gower, Merrickville, and Spencerville and surrounding rural areas. The hospice works co-operatively with primary care physicians, community hospitals, community nursing agencies, long-term care homes to complement its existing palliative care services and provide the best client care. All this while it makes every effort to incorporate the most effective, efficient and economic ways of supporting volunteers to deliver high quality and cost effective services of demonstrable value to the community.

All Work and No Play: Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Retirement Crisis

Can you afford to retire? By PETER CRISCIONE and LOUIE ROSELLA

News - No one ever said growing old in Ontario would be easy. Take for instance, the increased health concerns, intensified wrinkles and the whole notion that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s less time ahead of you than behind you. But, at least we have our retirement years to look forward too, right? Retirement is the time in life when we put away the work boots and enjoy life â&#x20AC;&#x201D; taking trips to tropic locations, maybe touring Europe, or finally buying that luxury car we could never afford. And, of course, we can spend more time with family. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the life weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve dreamed of, as promised by those popular Freedom 55 and Pacific Life insurance company commercials. Well, Deaven Lewis didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get that memo. Even at the ripe old age of 66, the Malton father of two can only dream of retirement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Is that a joke?â&#x20AC;? he replies, when asked if he has any plans to give up his part-time job at the Metro grocery store in Brampton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I retire now, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be living on beans, water and Kraft Dinner. At least this job allows me a little disposable income.â&#x20AC;? Lewis, a former financial services officer in the banking industry, is part of Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s looming pension crisis â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Baby Boomers and future generations who are in jeopardy of living in poverty as a result of an increased life expectancy and a

lack of financial foresight. Lewis said he made a generous salary in commercial services. But, he never had a pension plan outside of CPP. He and his wife Deanna live in a semi-detached home in Erin Mills, which they are still paying a mortgage on. The couple have some retirement savings put away in the form of Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSPs). â&#x20AC;&#x153;But if I could go back, I would have definitely looked for a work pension plan, not much I can do about that now,â&#x20AC;? she said. According to the Ontario government, less than 35 per cent of workers in the province have a pension plan at work, while only 28 per cent of private sector workers belong to a pension plan. Without a proper fix to Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pension system, many middle-income earners risk retiring without a fiscal safety net. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The cost of not doing anything is the real measure here,â&#x20AC;? said Ontario Finance Minister Charles Sousa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Imagine the tsunami of retirees that are going to come up the system, relying on CPP and not having anything much more to support them. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a huge cost to our social programs.â&#x20AC;? There is growing consensus in Canada that many middleincome workers without a workplace pension plan will face a lower standard of living in their retirement years. However, what many financial and government experts canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t agree on is how to

solve this looming problem. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe people expect to get by on just CPP,â&#x20AC;? said Susan Eng, vice-president for Advocacy at the Canadian Association of Retired Persons (CARP), the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s foremost advocacy group for seniors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They (CPP) were always meant to provide a base so that the private sector and private savings can fill in the gap. CPP just doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t provide enough to live on.â&#x20AC;?

The public may have noticed that seldom does CARP use its full name anymore. Even their website doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t include the name: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canadian Association of Retired Persons.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because the name isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really relevant anymore since half of our 300,000 members either canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t (afford to) retire, or choose not to,â&#x20AC;? Eng said.

how to address the shortfall in retirement savings. One solution would see an increase in mandatory contributions to CPP with the goal of substantially raising CPP pension payments and doubling the current maximum yearly payout of $12,000. Funding such an expansion of the CPP would require a hike to premiums paid by workers and employers. Several ideas have been The Canadian Labour Confloated in recent months on gress argues that even a modest

increase to CPP could solve the pension crisis. A worker earning $47,200 or more per year, for example, could gradually double future CPP benefits with an initial premium increase of 9 cents an hour, or $3.57 a week. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s less than the cost of a newspaper subscription, the Labour Congress notes. However, critics of this option, included among them the Canadian Federation of Independent Business, as well as Quebec and Alberta, and to some extent the federal government, have deemed mandatory increases a â&#x20AC;&#x153;job killer.â&#x20AC;? Calling it an added tax on business, opponents say a mandatory pension plan could put the province at a competitive disadvantage. The other pension fix being touted is a voluntary plan called Pooled Registered Pension Plans (PRPP). Under PRPPs, the self-employed or employees of companies without pension plans, could make voluntary contributions to a professionally managed pooled fund. The payout would depend on individual contribution and on investments returns the fund generates. Critics of that option, however, counter that unlike CPP, PRPPs wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t require employers to contribute anything. On top of that, there are concerns a large number of Canadians could choose not to buy into the plan. See RETIREMENT page K4

Sewage treatment plant digesters get upgrades By JOSEPH MORIN Joe.morin@metroland.com

News – With an eye towards keeping growth in North Grenville healthy, the North Grenville council has chosen to put off a few capital projects this year in order to help finance necessary repairs to its sewage treatment plant’s anaerobic digesters, a crucial final step in dealing with the solid waste the plant processes daily. The council gave the green light to reallocate the capital budget by $960,815 for the anaerobic digesters rehabilitation project last week. The municipality will have to finance $293,739.19 of that total. This amount will be paid back to the municipality by water and sewer users. Annual $25,000 payments over a 20-year term has been suggested for the financed amount. The total cost of the necessary work is $2,160,814,70 of which $1,200,000 the council had already set aside in its 2014 budget. The contract has been awarded to Louis Bray Construction and is expected to be completed over the next five months. The plan is to ensure that the equipment, now 21 years old, is operating as efficiently and as safely as it had been when it was new. At that time of the study in 2013 the

council had allocated $1.2 million towards bringing the digesters back to a proper state. Currently in 2014 the total cost for all the work that needs to be done as well as project engineering fees, construction and cleaning comes to $2,160,814.70. The difference between the two amounts will have to come from the planned capital projects and financing. The need for repair and upgrades to the municipality’s sewage treatment plant first came light in 2012 in a report from J.L Richards and Associates. Their engineers took a look at the plants two anaerobic digester and digestion equipment. They found that water was seeping in from the environment outside the digesters container and if left unchecked could gradually destroy the cement in the digester’s walls. The report stated, “The poor condition of the digesters could lead to the concrete walls further deteriorating and potentially allow for methane gas to be released into the atmosphere. This could lead to an environmental hazard.” A simplified explanation is that water that has been leaking through the roof of the original structure and from there into the concrete walls.

• work on River Road $260,000 • reallocation of gas tax $125,000 • PID water pump houses $5,000 • a water service pump $50,000 • a chlorine pump $13,000 • cap artesian flow Kernahan $10,000 • heater at Bridge Street pump station $10,000 • UPS upgrades (water) $5,000 • a fire pump Alfred $133,000 • secondary digester mixing pump $10,000 • biosolids $46,075.81 The cost of these projects is where $667,075.81 will come from. Karen Dunlop the director of public works for North Grenville explained that the work was important to keeping the sewage plant operating properly. The digesters are the final step in the process solid waste into biosolid that can then be disposed. The waste products have to go through this process. While the construction is taking place the municipality will have to have their unprocessed solid waste trucked to another treatment plant. The cost of taking the waste away has been included in the total cost of the project. When the project is completed, “It Capital projects placed on the shelf will be back to its original condition,” include: said Dunlop.

Retirement plans have to be safe and secure Some question whether people who now donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t currently contribute to an RRSP would want to contribute to a voluntary plan. At a time when traditional company pensions are rapidly disappearing, and CPP benefits are capped annually at $12,000, there is agreed sentiment that doing nothing will leave millions of middle-class earners vulnerable in retirement years. Several provincial finance ministers, including Sousa, have stepped forward to urge the federal government to move on reforms, including implementing modest increases to CPP contributions. But calls to prop up the federal program have ultimately fallen on deaf ears. Former Canadian Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t strong enough to support the increased taxation needed to bolster the fund. Policymakers are nervous about declining savings, increased household debt and an overheated housing market. Flaherty had suggested taking more out of incomes of most of the working population isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a sound idea. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right now the federal government is apprehensive about doing any of this, which is

strange because it is in the benefit of Canadians in the long term,â&#x20AC;? Sousa said. Frustrated by federal footdragging, the province is drafting its own vision for an Ontario Pension Plan to supplement the CPP. Earlier this year, Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne appointed former prime minister Paul Mar-

tin as a special adviser on pensions. Martin will contribute to a technical panel comprised of pension experts. Eng and other retirement savings experts suggest that individuals require 50-70 per cent of their pre-retirement income to maintain their standard of living in retirement. Most Ontarians

canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t save enough to meet that target. Eng says, at best, with CPP and Old Age Security combined, one can earn about $18,000 annually post-retirement. Most Ontarians earn about $9,000 from CPP and Old Age Security, she said, with the average monthly payout less than $600.

Chris Buttigieg, senior manager, Wealth Planning Strategy for BMO Financial Group, says sole dependence on CPP after retirement is a dire mistake. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Given the amount that the CPP...pays out, Canadians should not rely on them as a primary source of income to fund their retirement,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rather, they should consider the CPP to be

Nothing is guaranteed, not even your private pension By LOUIE ROSELLA

If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re enrolled in a pension plan, chances are your money is safe. Maybe. Perry Quinton, vice-president of marketing at Investor Education Fund (IEF), a non-profit organization founded by the Ontario Securities Commission, says anyone who is either looking for work or already employed should view privately-funded pension plans as a necessity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It can be free money that if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sign up for it, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to get it,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Any kind of incentive that forces you to save money is brilliant.â&#x20AC;? Quinton and her organization say there are mainly two types of private pension plans offered in Ontario: â&#x20AC;˘ a defined benefit pension plan, where the employer prom-

ises a specified monthly benefit on retirement that is pre-determined by a formula. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up to the employer to deliver what they promised when you retire. If a plan doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have enough money, the employer will have to put more money into the fund. â&#x20AC;˘ a defined contribution pension plan or Group Registered Retirement Savings Plan (Group RRSP), in which both you and your employer can put money into the plan. In either case, a trust company or insurance company holds this money in a separate account for you. You, not the company, own that money. Even if your employer goes bankrupt, your money is safe. Of course, you can always lose some or all of your money if the market crashes or if you

donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t invest it wisely, the IEF says. Your pension plan should not run out of money if the employer manages the fund properly, Quinton says. Even if the worst happens, some of your pension savings may be protected. In Ontario, most employers of defined benefit plans pay a yearly fee to Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pensions Benefits Guarantee Fund. This fund insures the first $1,000 of an employeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s monthly pension in case the employer goes bankrupt. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the only fund of this type in Canada. However, not even this unique fund will guarantee that an employee gets all of his/her promised pension, Quinton says, noting the infamous Nortel Networks bankruptcy case in which employees didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t receive all of

 

  



Should an employee be fired or choose to leave the company, depending on the type of plan, he/she may have the option of transferring their pension earnings into another plan, Quinton says. They could also leave it where it is and collect at time of retirement or transfer into a lockedin retirement savings account (LIRA), which works much like an RRSP. There is always the chance that a company chooses to shut down its pension plan, which it can do at anytime. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the plan was properly funded, you should get everything you have earned so far,â&#x20AC;? Quinton says. However, if the plan was underfunded, you may not get all youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re promised, Quinton says.

their promised pension.

a supplementary component of their overall retirement income solution and focus on creating their very own personal pension plan by contributing to an RRSP on a regular basis.â&#x20AC;? Others are counting on the sale of a home as a way to fund retirement. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exactly what Sung Joo Park, a self-employed caterer, did after she turned 60. Park, 76, lives in a rented apartment in Mississauga. Her husband, Jong Joo Park, 82, died earlier this year. Neither one of them had a private pension plan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Life was a lot easier 20 years ago.â&#x20AC;? Eng is calling on Ontario to make workplace pension plans mandatory. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has to come into existence and somebody has to create it,â&#x20AC;? she said. Details on an Ontario plan still need to be ironed out. The plan though would likely be run by an independent organization at arms-length from the provincial government. It would also use a defined contribution system that allows workers the choice to opt out. Sousa is keen on the idea of a mandatory system with an opt-out clause, similar to whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being done in Quebec and also in other countries.The Liberals remain steadfast on introducing new reforms but any potential changes are now on hold until after the June 12 provincial election.

Advance adds new reporter Community - Just in time for the summer weather, Jeff Mackey will be joining our editorial team at The Kemptville Advance as a multimedia reporter. Mackey brings to the table a wealth of community and breaking news experience as well as a passion for the written word. Born and raised in Ottawa, Mackey has travelled across the country pursuing his career in journalism. In true Canadian fashion, he has reported from both the urban jungle of

Toronto as well as the wheat fields of southern Saskatchewan. Now that he has returned closer to home, Mackey is committed to telling Kemptville stories that you won’t read anywhere else. Politics and the political process are of particular interest to Mackey and, as a heated provincial election kicks into gear, there should be plenty of opportunities to see how the goings on at Queen’s Park will affect everyday people in your community.

Mackey cut his teeth out on the prairies working for the newly founded Metro Regina daily paper. While there, he reported on everything from the Saskatchewan Roughriders and the provincial legislature to local history and community theatre. He has also completed internships with the Ottawa Citizen, the Canadian Press and Canadian Government Executive Magazine. Mackey holds a bachelor’s degree

in politics from Bishop’s University and a journalism diploma from Algonquin College. We would like to extend to Jeff a warm welcome and wish him the best in his new role with the The Kemptville Advance. With any luck this warm welcome will also extend to the summer weather. Should the weather not cooperate, however, it is a safe bet that Mackey will be telling you about it in this very paper.

Community - In 1961, the KDH Auxiliary organized the first Hey Day. Hey Day is giant yard sale to raise funds for the hospital. Kemptville area residents donated items for the sale, volunteers sorted and organized the items, and shoppers came from miles around to snap up the bargains. (That first year, donations included a litter of puppies and a Hereford calf.) Hey Day is still going strong and in 2014 marks the 54th year it has been held. The event always takes place the second weekend in June, filling the North Grenville Curling Club arena on Reuben Crescent in Kemptville. Sale hours this year are Friday June 13 (7-10 p.m.) and Saturday June 14 (9 a.m. -1 p.m.). Shoppers are usually lined up for a block or more on Friday evening, waiting for the 7 p.m. opening. They are hoping to get first crack at bargains in appliances, books, clothing, craft items, dishes, furniture, jewelry, linens, plants, sporting goods, toys, ornaments and more. They also want first choice of goodies at the bake sale table. During the event, tired shoppers can refresh themselves at the canteen with fresh sandwiches, coffee or soft drinks, and slices of homemade pie. Raffle tickets will be on sale, including the final round of tickets for the Auxiliaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual 50-50 raffle (last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winner received $2,780 â&#x20AC;&#x201D;a huge return on a $2 ticket!). All raffle prizes, including the 5050 winner, will be announced on Saturday June 14 at 1 p.m. Hey Day proceeds go toward buying needed new equipment for the hospital, to help keep patient care at KDH up-to-date. Largely due to funds raised at HeyDay, the Auxiliary has over the years contributed over $1.1 million to the Kemptville District Hospital. You can help by donating items for sale. Hey Day welcomes us-

Kemptville Wildcats win in inaugural intermediate division Sports - Kemptville District Little League launched its inaugural Intermediate program this past weekend at Riverside Park . The Kemptville Wildcats are made up of kids from Brockville, Prescott, Winchester, Morrisburg, Williamsburg and Kemptville . They will play doubleheaders every Sunday morning starting at 10 a.m. against teams from District 2 in Ottawa at Riverside 1. The league lasts six weeks for a 12-game schedule . The Intermediate division is a cross between

Retirement is your social responsibility

E

ditorial – Sha-la-la-la-la-la/Live for today And don’t worry/‘bout tomorrow Hey, hey, hey If you’re old enough to remember that 1967 song by The Grassroots, and lived by its ideals, there’s a good chance that you’re now neck deep in your own personal retirement crisis. For a host of reasons, the majority of Baby Boomers failed to plan adequately for their retirement. Just to make ends meet, many seniors are now working well past the traditional retirement age of 65. Across Canada, the median senior exists on far less than $30,000 a year. It’s even more troubling that the next generation of Ontarians can’t get past today’s financial obligations to set a little aside for a secure tomorrow. They’re spending their so-called ‘extra’ cash paying off student loans or paying for child care or looking after their parents. There simply is no extra money for a nest egg. Sadly, more than 30 per cent of Gen Xers say they’re counting on a lottery win to stay afloat financially in their golden years. Because so many more of us are living well past 65, retirement in Ontario is about to explode into a full-scale financial crisis. Almost 1.3 million Ontario workers have no workplace pension. Almost all of Ontario’s new jobs are being created by small businesses that don’t offer a pension plan for employees. At the same time, many Ontarians just aren’t saving for retirement. Experts say you will need 50-70 per cent of your pre-retirement income to maintain your standard of living in retirement — but many Ontarians can’t or won’t meet this target. As a result, they’ll have to keep working well into their so-called golden years. The bigger cause for concern, though, is that we’re sticking our collective heads in the sand

L

and pretending it isn’t happening. Employers and workers must be encouraged to take responsibility for their financial futures. Government and business agree that fixing Ontario’s pension problem is a priority. But to do that, the system has to change. Susan Eng of the Canadian Association of Retired Persons (CARP) is calling on Ontario to make workplace pension plans mandatory. She’s spot on and we couldn’t agree more. It also should be mandatory for working Ontarians aged 16 and older to have a pension plan. The business community overwhelmingly favours the introduction of PRPPs to Ontario workplaces and we think that’s the right way to go. Both employers and the employees contribute to a pooled retirement plan and it’s managed by independent financial professionals. Those PRPPs need to be portable. They should follow a working Ontarian from job to job. And Ontarians need to start asking prospective employers about their pension plan and making it a high priority when they’re considering a job offer: Companies would then need to offer attractive pension plans to attract the brightest, most talented young people. Inadequate financial preparedness should be socially taboo, as smoking and drunk driving are now. We need our young people to buy into the idea that we all need to care about retirement planning, much the way we all recycle for the good of the planet. Changing the culture starts with education: Schools need to start teaching financial literacy in Grade 7, before young people take on their first part-time jobs. They say that in life, the only sure things are death and taxes. But Ontarians should be able to count on a healthy pension after a lifetime of working hard and contributing to society.

Gracie’s wilderness adventure

ifestyle - It was a long, hard winter for Gracie the sheep. Her lamb was taken to market so she doesn’t have to nurse him anymore but she is still a bit underweight and needs to gain. The grass on the pasture hasn’t exactly perked up yet. The grass on the lawn, in contrast, is lush and green. Sometimes I let Gracie out onto the lawn for an hour or two. The sweet green shoots of grass are full of nutrients for her. The other morning she was out there on the lawn while I was getting ready for work. The trouble started when the Farmer left for the office. Gracie saw the big black truck pulling out of the driveway and decided to follow it. She is the only sheep left and she has been adjusting quite well for a herd animal, keeping company with the horse and donkey, but she remembers the truck that took the rest of the sheep away. I told them they were going on vacation and I guess she decided she was tired of being left behind and wanted to go too. She followed the truck around the corner and down the road a bit but got distracted

As soon as her face was on the pasture side, she bounced up and away. Freedom! Off she ran, to join the cows. Another adventure comes to an end. I trudged back up through the forest, down the road and up to the house. Then I hopped in the car and went off to work, smelling faintly of mutton.

GARDENER’S CORNER

Mother, what a day! As most of you know, I write this column about ten days in advance of the publication date. My deadline is Monday for the following Thursday. Well, today was Mother’s Day at the nursery. Like any Sunday, things start off slow and once folks have slept in, had breakfast, gone to church or whatever, they start thinking about plants. It was however a little different this Sunday. At about 12:30 cars started rolling into the parking lot like the Drive-In just got out (remember Drive-Ins?) It seemed that every vehicle had a mother in it. The weather was warm and sunny and there were a lot of people so fed up with winter they just wanted to see something growing and our greenhouses didn’t disappoint. When they get out of their cars in the parking lot, the first things they see is the pond and the ducks, and they were really putting on a show today. Lots of splishing and splashing and tails in the air while nibbling on tender pond plants. Every morning is like an Easter egg hunt. I have to circle the pond to see where the hens have laid their eggs. Every day one of the staff gets to take a few eggs home for a breakfast treat. We had folks from nine to ninety in today. The whole day felt like a huge family reunion. Lots of smart phone photos with the ducks and everyone was smiling and laughing. And we get paid to do this! It was so much fun roaming the greenhouses with customers and answering questions. As the families were leaving the nursery, there were lots of hugs and kisses and “Happy

Mother’s Days”. And everyone was taking home something to plant. No one would let their Mother open her purse. It truly was a day to restore your faith in flora and fauna and family. The only down side was our new Interac machine. After three 45 minute phone calls to Knoxville Tennessee for tech support, we were no further ahead. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn’t. We soon discovered that if you stepped outside the building it would work. Folks got a strange look on their face when you asked them to step outside to run their debit card. Gotta love this new tech! As the afternoon was winding down, it was time to give the ducks their supper and I watched as they gobbled up their lay mash and washed it down with some pond water. My thoughts turned to my Mom and her love of animals. We lost our Mom last month after a long struggle with dementia and finally a stroke. If Mom is looking down on us from somewhere, I think she would be really pleased at how the day went for us. It was the culmination of everything she taught us. Love your family, love your animals and grow things. Mom, I had a really good day. Thank you. If you have any gardening questions or comments, email us at the link below.

Community - It’s a place where kids can test the waters away from home and have wonderful new experiences. To many people summer camp for kids might appear like nothing more than fun and games. However, a study conducted in the past few years supports what camp directors have been saying for decades: Camp is a setting for positive youth development where invaluable life skills are acquired and nurtured. “At summer camp I finally found something I was good at,” said Rick Mercer, political satirist. It’s no surprise that camp stories often weave themselves into many children’s best life experiences. After all, when people think camp, they think fun. However, the not-so-well-kept secret is that kids will learn more at camp than they ever expected. Rideau Hill Camp provides the perfect setting for enjoyable learning through hands-on experiences, co-operative tasks and unique challenges Rideau Hill Camp is gearing up to begin our 66th camping season.

Have you seen one of these signs around North Grenville? By ELIZABETH GREENBERG

News - These roadside Fire Hazard Signs in North Grenville are used as an educational tool and a public notification system to update residents of the current fire hazards status within their community. Weather is the most important variable in determining burning conditions in any community. The Fire Hazard Signs in North Grenville have a scale identifying fire risk based on environmental / weather conditions from Low Risk - Green, Moderate Risk - Yellow, High Risk - Orange, to Extreme Risk â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Red. The North Grenville Fire Service has access to extensive fire weather network which provides current weather observations and forecast data that helps determine the appropriate designation. These fire hazard signs will be adjusted to reflect the current situations and may change daily based on environmental factors. The Fire Hazard Signs also features a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fire Banâ&#x20AC;? status.

Winchester hospital to be site of Upper Canada Health Link Health care teams to provide more complete care to patients with chronic conditions By JENNIFER McINTOSH jennifer.mcintosh@metroland.com

â&#x20AC;&#x153;People with complex needs with multiple conditions arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always getting the care they need.â&#x20AC;? DEB MATTHEWS PROVINCIAL HEALTH MINISTER

Matthews said the problem with health care is that one per cent of the population of Ontario consumes one-third of health care spending. Five per cent of the population consumes two-thirds of health care spending. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People with complex needs with multiple conditions arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Matthews took time during always getting the care they need. the announcement to talk to Win- They may be getting lots of care, chester hospital patient Evelyn they may be going to lots of ap-

pointments and spend lots of time in hospitals, but they may not be getting the best care for them,â&#x20AC;? said Matthews. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Partly because there isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t an integrated plan of care for that person where all their health-care needs are dealt with by a team of health care people.â&#x20AC;? The idea for the health links came from the medical community and the province has been working on implementation for the last year, Matthews said. A link would be led by a family health team, a community health centre, community care access centre or hospital. They include family doctors, specialists, hospitals, long-term care, home care or other community supports like food banks or police. They have received funding from the local health integration networks and aim to take a more holistic approach to patient care. Matthews said there are currently 54 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which covers about half of the province. Matthews said she talked to a

man in Barrie, Ont. who was in the emergency room once a week for chronic pain and diabetes-related complications. He was suicidal and addicted to opiates. Since the creation of his health team he has reduced his opiate use by 80 per cent, stayed out of the emergency room and has no more thoughts of suicide. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew that health links would benefit patients with complex issues like Evelyn, but we are also seeing a lot of mental health issues out of this as well,â&#x20AC;? Matthews said. The Ontario governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s initial funding for this project is $60,000 and, ultimately, available funding could be as much as $1 million. Dr. Marilyn Crabtree from the St. Lawrence Medical Clinic said the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most vulnerable patients will receive better care and the health link system will reduce wait times for patients with multiple community and hospitalbased needs.

The health linkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boundaries will include Russell Township, and the surrounding area to rural south eastern Ottawa and the St. Lawrence River. It will be led by the Winchester Hospital with the collaboration of frontline service organizations like, the Dundas Manor, Rural Ottawa South Support Services, the Township of Osgoode Care Centre and the Findlay Creek and Osgoode family health organizations.

SERVICE, Faye Audrey – In loving memory of a wife, mother, grandmother and greatgrandmother who passed away on 26 May 2012. We will never forget you. Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there. I do not sleep, I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn’s rain, When you waken in the morning’s hush, I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circled flight, I am the soft stars that shine at night, Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die. Husband Robert Cindy, Myles and Thomas Jan, Jeff, Courtney, Kyle, Stephanie and Tennessee

HUMENIUK, Roy Roman, 1926-2013 – Written by granddaughter Christine and printed here with her permission. I went away today, Just my body, not my soul, I left behind a special piece of me for each and everyone of you. I went away today, Just my voice, not my words, Whether in the whisper of the trees, Or a loud roaring storm, Listen, they are always near. I went away today, But our memories live on through you, Whether in a silent thought, a picture frame, an album or a story told, Our memories are forever a keepsake. I went away today, Be sad, be blue, but remember I am never far away from you. Not in sight, but look inside, my presence is there watching over you. I went away today, To a new home, high above with others that we love, Friends and family that have been lost, but not forgotten. Till we meet again Be safe, be happy. Live life, love unconditionally. Be in no hurry to move on. Take in all the world has to offer, And never let it go. Missing you, love from Marjorie and families


IN MEMORIAM

McDOUGALL – In loving memory of our dear nan Dorothy McDougall, May 21, 2014. We think of you in silence, We often speak your name, But all we have are memories and your picture in a frame. Your resting place we visit And put flowers there with care, But no one knows the heartache As we turn and leave you there. Love always And missed so much Kim & Mackenzie Paul, Chantal, Connor & Breanna XOXOXOXO

McDOUGALL – In loving memory of a very precious “Mom”, one year ago May 21, 2013, the saddest day of my life. Dorothy May Burke-McDougall, loving wife of Edwin “Eddie” McDougall (Oct 22, 1969). Happy Mother’s Day/Happy 1st Anniversary with Dad. As I sit here & look at a picture of you, And look at those beautiful eyes of blue, I can certainly see why my Dad would be attracted to you. I’m happy, I’m sad and sometimes don’t know what to do, But as long as your safe, We will handle it without you, Lonely you were, but one day that changed, Your wish was to join Dad, And that was what you chose to do. We are all fine, both of you we all miss, But one day we’ll be together and start to reminisce. Hugs to you Mom & Dad. Your darling daughter, Diane

IN MEMORIAM

MORRISON, Andrew – May 19, 2012 In loving memory of a dear Husband and Father. It seems like yesterday that you were here with us Popa, Appreciating the first traces of spring, The time of year that you treasured so much, We miss your passion for life, That can do attitude, Which so positively affect those around you, Most of all we miss you being here, As much today as when you left us. With love from your wife Barbara, Isabel (Paul) Stewart Gay (Curtis) Ryan Andrina Allan John And all your grandchildren

MacDONALD, Clifford – In loving memory of our dear father, grandfather, great grandfather, who left his family on May 13, 2011. We had a father with a heart of gold How much we miss him could 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 but 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 the best. Dearly missed and loved forever All your family

GOURLEY - In loving memory of a dear Nan/Grand-Nan, Thelma, who passed away on May 27, 2012. We must let go as she journeys on. She would want it just that way But I know we will meet again On a distant shore someday. And when we do, we’ll share a joke, and a cup of tea. Though just for now, she goes on alone While we treasure her memory. Always in our Hearts Tracy, Jamie and Adam

In loving memory of a dear brother, uncle and best friend May 25th, 1994. Our lives go on without you, but nothing is the same. We have to hide our heartaches, when someone speaks your name. Sad are the hearts that loved you, silent tears that fall. Living in our lives without you, is the hardest part of all. You did so many things for us; your heart was kind and true. And when we needed someone, we could always count on you. The special years will not return, when we were all together. But with the love within our hearts, you will walk with us forever. Forever missed and lovingly remembered By Shirley, Kevin and Families XOXO

REGIONAL NEWS

Connected to your community

Local statutes can have big impact on business Lots of kittens now available for adoption at LAWS Lifestyle – As a former member and past chair of the Business Improvement Association (BIA) in Carleton Place this is a subject that has been on my mind for many years. I have seldom written about it however. But something that happened on Mother’s Day weekend brought the matter to the forefront and has prompted me to delve into the topic this week. I am going to write about local bylaws and in particular how they can impact small businesses in our communities. One of the most frequent complaints I heard as a BIA member was how upset downtown business people were when out-of-towners rolled in selling all sorts of things. Everything from books, to kitchen gadgets and tools, CDs, DVDs or even flowers. There is always someone trying to make a buck flogging items door-todoor or setting up on street corners. Sometimes they take the trouble to apply and pay for a vendor’s licence (loosely referred to here as a “peddler’s licence”) which most municipalities require under their bylaw structure. Certain so-called “fly by nighters” don’t bother about local requirements however. They aren’t about to let a licencing fee cut into their bottom line. It is about making as many quick sales as possible and getting out of town before the “heat” (bylaw enforcement or police officers) pay them a visit and insist the rules are followed. Obviously it is those people who give everyone involved a bad name. Anyway, it is flowers that brought this subject to the surface for me once again on Mother’s Day. There are only a handful of days each year when local florists, nurseries and supermarkets (who also sell flowers and plants) enjoy a major run of business. Valentine’s Day, Christmas-time and yes, Mother’s Day. What more perfect gift is there for Mom than a nice bouquet of spring flowers or perhaps a perennial for the flower border or garden? A week ago Sunday I was out for my daily walk – after enjoying a Mother’s Day brunch with my mom near Stittsville earlier in the day I hasten to add. Our son was visiting and he accompanied me. On the return leg I encountered a lady I know very well. She and her husband are long-time florists in downtown Carleton Place. She was chatting with a gentleman I had seen, but had never formally met. They hailed me and we had a conversation. Turns out the man and his wife are the operators of the other main street flower shop in Carleton Place. They wanted to talk to me about the competition they faced on one of the biggest days of the year for flower sales, Mother’s Day. An out-of-town operator (or operators) was selling flowers on the street in two locations. One downtown and the other along the busy Highway 7 strip. It wasn’t the highway sales that troubled them, it was the downtown competition which had them hot under the collar. “We (to shops) help each other,” my long-time acquaintance underlined. “This situation doesn’t help either of us.”

Reflections

town. They had. Therefore they were conducting business in a perfectly legitimate fashion under local statutes. I want to make this perfectly clear. The folks who were selling flowers here on Mother’s Day weekend were completely above board and their product was clearly first-rate. They had plenty of customers from what I could see! Let’s face it, this is a free country and there is a free enterprise system. Therefore people have a perfect right to shop where they choose. Now for the local business people’s side! They are unhappy and, after dusting off my BIA hat, I want to make it clear my sympathy lies with local businesses. Here and in all of the communities in our region and our country. Running a small business today is a difficult thing and ringing up a profit at the end of the year can be a daunting task. The more competition they face, the more difficult it is to remain solvent. The florists who spoke to me don’t mind competitors. Counting all of those who sell flowers locally they have plenty of competition thank you. What they are concerned about is fairness. They have staked their futures on Carleton Place, just as so many other small businesspeople have. They pay rent, taxes (including a BIA tax) and have all of the many expenses that go with staffing and operating a storefront in the community. They employ local people. It’s exactly the same situation the businesses in your hometown face year-round. In recent years there has been a rising crescendo from small business asking residents of their communities to “Shop Local.” It is a huge issue today when you consider the depth of the competition. Imagine what it takes to be a success in the book business today, for example, with so much online competition. Similarly fast food outlets have had a dramatic impact on local restaurants. It seems there is a pizza outlet on every corner and obviously there is a demand or they wouldn’t be there. I’m not knocking anyone. I am simply pointing out the obvious. It is all about survival of the fittest! On the other side are the folks I mentioned earlier. The people who roll into town for a day or a weekend with the object of selling a particular product and turning a profit quickly and cheaply. Often they sell out of the trunk of a car or the back of a pick-up truck. Those who follow the rules and purchase a vendor ’s permit are to be commended for following the rules. Many don’t. I know because as a former business manager (publisher of the local newspaper) we had all kinds of salespeople visit out office over the Totally legitimate I asked if they had checked to see course of the year selling everything if their street-side competitors had and anything you can name. As a BIA member my first question purchased a vendor’s permit from the

JEFF MAGUIRE

was “do you have a permit?” If they didn’t I directed them to the nearby Town Hall and insisted they purchase said permit. I know for a fact many did not follow my advice. And that is a shame. But back to our florists and their concerns. I completely agree with them. I believe municipalities have to make it easier for small businesses to operate and survive. Part of that process is to make it as difficult as possible for “here today, gone tomorrow” vendors to operate in our town and in your municipality. Higher fees There are ways this can be accomplished and I outlined my thoughts to the flower shop owners during our conversation. An obvious option is to raise the price of a vendor’s licence/permit. The more it costs to buy a licence, the less likely such operators are to set up in small communities. It is, after all, about earning maximum money in the shortest possible period. Anything that impacts on their profit margin is sure to give them pause. However, requiring a vendor’s permit is only worthwhile if the local statute is enforced. Most bylaw issues are complaint driven. Therefore I feel that local governments should put a tighter rein on this situation by challenging individuals selling on the street or door-to-door to produce the required permit. If they aren’t challenged they will be back time and again in my experience. There is such a thing as an outright ban on this kind of sales activity. But that is far more difficult to put in place and could lead to legal challenges, something local municipalities don’t want to become involved in. Not when taxpayers’ money is at stake. I don’t believe in limiting business opportunities, but fair is fair. And usually the kind of competition I’m referring to is not on an equal footing with the local businesses they are impacting. It’s not a level playing field. It is not my place to tell anyone where to shop. It is your money and you can spend it where and when you wish. On the other hand I am a huge advocate of “Shop Local” and we do just that in our own lives. Therefore I am asking this week that you consider how important small businesses are in your community and support them whenever possible. Small business is the backbone of the community and they need your help to survive and thrive. Oh yes, as I told the business owners who complained to me about street corner sales. This is a municipal election year. What better time to lobby local politicians on an important subject!

Featured animals Bailey Bailey is a sweet, eight-year-old spayed and declawed female.

She has had two very loving homes but sadly both separate owners passed

away and now Bailey is looking for a quiet forever home. Bailey is currently in a foster home, so if you would like to meet this sweet lady, please contact the shelter at 613-283-9308 to arrange a time that is convenient for you. Waldo Lovingly nicknamed “the Gentle Giant,” this seven-year-old bloodhound mix with the bright, dark coat, is loping your way in search of a fellow adventurer. Big, handsome Waldo has a big, wellrounded personality: easygoing and good-natured, intelligent and enthusiastic. He may look strong and be strong, but he’s extremely social and very affectionate with everyone. Although good with some larger dogs, small dogs and cats remain a question mark. The bloodhound in Waldo keeps him alert, watchful and curious, and nothing tickles his nose more than a good scent to follow! That’s why – for his own protection and your peace of mind – he needs to be kept on leash or allowed to roam free only in a secure, fenced-in area. He can also be quite vocal, and because of his moderate to high energy level, this bouncy, big boy will need plenty of exercise and stimulating activities to keep him satisfied. The ideal forever home for Waldo will be gentle and patient with him, provide him the guidance he needs, and lavish him with the attention he deserves. Lanark Animal Welfare Society (LAWS) is located on Glenview Road, just off Highway 43, about 2 kilometres west of Smiths Falls. The shelter is open Monday to Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Write to us at P.O. Box 156, Smiths Falls, ON K7A 4T1 or contact us at 613283-9308, or email at shelter@lanarkanimals.ca. Visit our website at www.lanarkanimals.ca. Please also check out www.AdoptADog.TV featuring some of our canines up for adoption. If you have lost a dog or cat please check our website or phone or visit the shelter. If you have found a dog or cat please visit our website to find the number of your local animal control officer.

Here’s a really “cool” approach to drying By DON MERCER

Lifestyle – Someone once asked me to name the favourite things I had ever dried. This was a bit of a puzzler, but my eventual answer was strawberries and ginger root. My reasons were quite simple and not very scientific – they were the ones that gave the room the most pleasant smell. On the flip side of this coin were the ones that were my least favourites. Without a doubt, the two top contenders were onions and garlic. Fortunately, I dried these in the garage, and the experience was certainly memorable. The smell of the garlic was so strong that even the dog wouldn’t go into the garage for several days. As for the onions, this is probably the only time that my drying work literally brought tears to my eyes. Sadly, even though the smells may be pleasant, this means that you are losing many of the delicate aromatic compounds that cannot be replaced in the food that you are drying. Heating just naturally causes them to escape from the food. This doesn’t mean that conventional drying is “bad” or harmful to the product – it’s just that some products need to be handled in a more gentle manner.

based on a natural process called “sublimation”, where water molecules go from their frozen state as ice directly to water vapour without passing through the liquid state. Sublimation is how the ice on a frozen sidewalk disappears on a sub-zero day in February. It’s also how some berries dry as they cling to the vine over the winter. Food processors have used freeze drying for years in specialized applications. One of my projects in the late 70’s was extracting protein from soybean meal and freeze drying it. In this way, the functional characteristics of the proteins were protected so that they could be used in developing specialty food products.

Those who are into wilderness camping and hiking are probably quite familiar with freeze dried foods. Packaged in water-proof protective pouches, they are a light-weight alternative to carrying heavier versions of the same foods without the water removed. Recently, freeze dried products have become more mainstream. Some leading manufacturers of baby foods have introduced freeze dried snacks made from yoghurt mixed with fruit and vegetable purées. As with many freeze dried foods, these snacks have a light, airy Freeze drying is one approach texture that makes them dissolve that avoids excessive heat. It is easily in the baby’s mouth.

very low temperature. Once loaded, the dryer is closed and a vacuum is drawn on the chamber. A small amount of heat is applied through the metal racks so that the material remains frozen, but there is just enough heat to promote sublimation of the water molecules into the vapour state. After most of the water is removed by sublimation, any remaining water which is held more tightly in the product can be removed by applying more heat – but not enough heat to create any quality issues. Overall, the freeze drying process can take from 24 to 48 hours. Freezing does more than prevent the loss of aromatic compounds. It also sets up the structure of the product so that when the ice crystals disappear, they leave an open network that speeds the rate of rehydration when water is added back into the product. This explains the melt-inPhoto by Don Mercer your-mouth appeal of the baby These baby snacks made from freeze dried yoghurt, fruit, and vegetables have an open, snacks.

airy texture.

While the actual freeze drying process requires some rather sophisticated equipment, the overall concept is not terribly complicated. The material to be dried can be spread in a thin layer (or deposited in dollops) on a metal tray. It is then frozen to a temperature

below -50C, which is considerably colder than the temperature in a typical household freezer. As in all drying processes, it’s a good idea to focus on what is happening to the water. In this case, the water is definitely in its crystalline or ice form. As ice, there is no liquid water

available to support the growth of undesirable microorganisms, nor allow adverse chemical reactions to occur. Both of these require liquid water and heat to take place. The trays of frozen material are then place on metal racks in a freeze dryer and kept at their

Amazingly, all this originated by applying the simple concept of sublimation to the complex structures of the food we eat. Don Mercer the Associate Professor, Food Science, Kemptville Campus, University of Guelph.

COME OUT TO CELEBRATE THE START OF THE MARKET’S 7TH SEASON! Heather Westendorp where I swore I was not going to overeat for the day. I would vow control food or simply not eat today. I tried every single “diet fad” or new miracle food. By mid-day, I was so tired that any food that was fast and easy would work. Then I would blame myself afterwards for consuming so many calories. The diet was then “blown” so why worry about it? I just ate whatever I wanted and figured the battle would start again tomorrow! Then knowing that I was planning to diet tomorrow lead to eating things that I knew dieting would outlaw. It felt like a merry-go-round only it was not any fun! I learned that certain foods were bad, but they tasted so very good. It takes a lifetime to develop the habits that we have. It is simple to say, “Just lose Weight”. These three simple words translate to a huge shift in every single aspect of life. Food has been my worst enemy and my very best friend. One of the greatest lessons I learned on the journey to lose weight was to identify behaviors

that were contributing to my obesity. • emotional Eating • Calorie Drinking (Juices, café latte, fruit smoothies) • Irregular Eating Patterns; Starvation and Feasting • All or nothing Diet Yo-Yo • Portion Distortion • Inactivity I did not change these behaviors overnight. I wrote them down and day by day began to practice alternate behaviors. I stopped angry and blaming myself all the time. The task of re-wiring the way you think is huge. It takes time, energy and devotion, but no more than you already spend blaming yourself. Stop the diet Game and step by step follow Canada`s Food Guide, keep a food diary and set goals that are reasonable! Heather Westendorp is a graduate of the University of Guelph: Food, Nutrition and Risk Management Diploma. She has also lost over 50 lbs. and is now a healthy weight, improving her health status!

Lifestyle - I do not think people who have never had to battle weight issues have any understanding of what it is like to be told…. Just diet and lose weight. It sounds very simple and even makes sense. Putting desire into action is very difficult. Does anyone believe that this alleged “self-inflicted” obesity is what anyone wants to happen? Just: eat less, lose weight, exercise, change every single facet of your lifestyle and then you will be healthy and thin. My first realization that I was “different” happened in Kindergarten. I was bigger than the other kids. I anxiously awaited the lunch bell. At lunch, most kids socialized and picked at their lunches. I focused fully on my food and ate as quickly as I could to make sure I got it all. Then I would sit and quietly watch the other kids while they ate their lunches (that I wish I had). The other children were so “wasteful” and would actually throw uneaten food in the garbage! I could not believe it! What the heck was wrong with these kids? A person who is obese does not wake up every morning and say, hey, I want to gain some weight today. I will eat more calories than my body needs and I will be as inactive as possible to make sure I stay this way. I do not know one person who is overweight that does not wake up every morning and promise that they will make a valiant effort to eat properly today. I do not know a heavy person who wants their clothing to be too small or wants to be unable to walk a mile. Most people who battle weight issues desire nothing more than to be a thin person! Every fat kid wants to be a thin kid and participate in activities. Exercise hurts! Walking the first mile just about killed me. My heart rate went up, my legs hurt, my back hurt and I was actually sweating. I hate sweating! There was no way that I had time or energy to devote my life to exercise! I would watch women with their walking clothes pass my house every day. Such devotion and obsession! Secretly, I admired them, but it was simply too late for me to run around like that, at almost 200 lbs. What are they thinking, telling me that I need to exercise? There were many mornings

Riverside Park finally dry and safe for Kemptville Little League to start season By MARY LEANG

Sports - Everything is finally in place for Kemptville Little League to start its season, the last of which was getting clearance from the Municipality of North Grenville to be allowed to use the diamonds at Riverside Park in Kemptville. The fields were simply too wet to be safe to use all of the first week’s games will have to be rescheduled. This was also the case with the Rural Ottawa Softball Association with their fields as they officially delayed the start of the season to May 12. During the past week, teams were able to use the diamonds at South Gower park to do get into the game as convenors and coaches assessed players to balance the teams and have practices to prepare for the season. The delay in the start of the season did end up allowing KDLL convenors the opportunity to add more teams as last minute registrations were still being

received and many teams were at their maximum capacity. The scheduler being able to shuffle and accommodate this at the last minute continues to show the commitment KDLL has to not disappointing anyone who wants to play. The girls softball program grew from two teams last year to six teams this year. All diamonds at Riverside Park and South Gower Park will now be busy every night with teams eager to start their first games this week. Finally, let’s play ball!

Hurleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s players go â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;All Inâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to raise money for local charities By Mary-Anne Leang

Sports - Every Wednesday night, 27 players, ages 18-70, have been gathering at Hurleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grill in Kemptville to test their skill (or luck?) playing Texas Holdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;em Poker. Now in its seventh season, they have raised over $2,000 for local charities. There is no entry fee or cost to play and the money raised was by voluntary weekly donations by the players. Points are awarded weekly, depending how players place and the total points are used to determine standings going into the final nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tournament where players compete for prizes donated by Hurleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. The money raised is donated in December and May of each year to local charities. Last December, funds were used to buy over 40 Christmas presents for less fortunate children in our community. This season, money raised will be used to sponsor a local child to attend summer camp at Big Sky Ranch and also for the Jumpstart program. Big Sky Ranch is a local animal sanctuary near Kemptville for abused and unwanted animals. This year, they are offering summer day camps for kids ages 6-13 in 4 weekly sessions from July 7-August 1. In their summer camp program, children learn how to care for and

keep the animals and also enjoy old fashioned fun on the farm, including lassoing lessons, horse back riding, hay rides, horse shoe toss, arts and crafts, scavenger hunts and more. More information is available at www.bigskyranch.ca. Jumpstart program The Jumpstart program helps children attend sports or activities that they may not otherwise be able to afford to. Since May is Jumpstart month, the first $2,000 raised locally is double matched then matched dollar for dollar by Canadian Tire. Last year, our local Jumpstart program financed 57 kids to attend sports, camps and activities. More than 70 programs are covered for youth from North Grenville. There will also be a fundraising BBQ in front of the Kemptville Canadian Tire on May 31 at 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. where they will also continue to accept donations. For more information, contact Claire Larabie at askmeone@sympatico.ca .

Arts - From the National Arts Centre to Massey Hall, Matt Andersen has been wowing crowds with his performances. Andersen will be appearing at the Brockville Arts Centre with special guest Jeremy Fisher tonight (Thursday, May 22). Promoting his latest release, Weightless, his eighth full length album, Andersen says he will be mixing it up with new songs, old favourites and the odd cover tune. While saying he never really had a “big break,” he puts his success down to, “Hard work pays off.” In 2012 alone, he played over 200 shows, he recalled. Saying he has slowly built his fan base, he feels fortunate for receiving airplay from institutions such as the CBC. Growing up in Perth-Andover, New Brunswick, he explained music was part of the culture. And the stage is somewhere he describes as his, “Most comfortable place.” Feeling good in sharing those moments with his audience, he feels best when everyone is having a mutually gratifying experience. “Dusty with some shimmer, the new album is infused with Andersen’s unparalleled dexterity on the guitar, cut with moments of songwriterly reflection. With Steve Berlin acting as grace note behind the boards, Andersen’s command of blues and soul are tempered in just the right places,” noted material provided by Andersen’s marketing representative. Andersen, as noted, will be joined by Fisher, a Juno award nominee. His fifth album, Mint Juleps, is an “Acoustic-driven collection of 12 songs reunites Fisher with his folk-drenched musical roots and is a veritable throwback to the golden era of the singer-

UCDSB to host annual Champions for Kids Fun Run/Walk “Strive for Five!” Local TD Canada Trust branches get involved as event sponsors

Grenville District High School principal Steve Sharp. “It was a wonderful experience; lots of fun with my family and colleagues for a great cause. Then we got to eat some ribs!” Crawford would like to thank TD Canada Trust locations in Kemptville and the Brockville Shopping Centre for

their ongoing support of this event. For the last three years, TD has sponsored student centipede teams from schools in their local area. New this year, branch managers from Perth, Prescott and downtown Brockville have joined in to sponsor teams from Glen Tay Public School, South Grenville District High School, and

Community - The Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) is gearing up to host its 5th annual Champions for Kids Fun Run/Walk called “Strive for Five!” on Sunday, June 16, 2013 – Father’s Day – at the Ferguson Forest Centre in Kemptville. This year, event organizers have a goal to raise $5,000 for the foundation which supports families of children who can’t afford to play sports or enjoy the arts outside of school hours, as well as families whose children require medical care. “We’re so excited to reach this goal, and we know we can do it,” says event chair Sarah Crawford. As in previous years, participants are invited to participate in the one-kilometre or five-kilometre walk/run as individual participants or centipede teams.

“We’re so excited to reach this goal, and we know we can do it.” SARAH CRAWFORD EVENT ORGANIZER

Centipede teams are groups of five to eight people who walk or run in costume and stay tied together in some unique way. “This year we are challenging schools, staff, school councils, community partners, daycare providers, and all interested parties to submit a centipede team of at least five members,” says Crawford. “Centipede teams are a lot of fun for groups of families, friends, or coworkers.” “We also understand that some of us would rather finish the event individually, and not tied to a team,” laughs Crawford. “That option is still very popular too! It’s nice to have the choice.” Crawford said she’s also thrilled that the event has once again partnered with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Leeds and Grenville which will be hosting Ribfest at the same location. “Both events have one common goal in mind – to support children in our communities,” she says. “After the walk/run, participants are invited to visit Ribfest next door and enjoy KIDZONE, face painting, bounce house, petting zoo, pony rides, skee ball, basketball, arcade games, balloons, and of course, ribs!” Prizes will be awarded to the participant who raises the most money in pledges, has the best costume (for centipede teams), shows the best spirit and is the youngest and most senior in age. Registration begins at 9 a.m., with a 10 a.m. start for the onekilometre event and a 10:15 a.m. start for the five-kilometre event. “In the past four years, we have contributed over $10,000 to Champions for Kids. “It is truly rewarding to know that the money raised goes right back into the hands of families who see the benefits immediately.” The minimum pledge is $20 for families or individual runners, and $100 for centipede teams. “I’ve run twice now,” says North

In addition, Crawford would like to thank accountant Anthony Fritz for sponsoring a Lyn Public School team, Team Solutions for sponsoring a team from Big Brothers Big Sisters, St. Lawrence College for sponsoring two teams to participate, and Walmart for sponsoring a student team from Kemptville Public School for the third year in a row.

On stage and off, Little Women, the Musical is about dreams By PAUL JOYCE

Arts – Take a classic tale that has been cherished by generations of readers, add a stirring live music score and a cast of seasoned actors, and what do you have? An unforgettable stage show, and a dream come true for actors and audiences alike. Little Women, The Musical, which opens on Thursday, May 22, is one of the most eagerly anticipated shows ever staged by Perth’s Studio Theatre. Director C. Lee Bates knows that her telling of this beloved story has a lot to live up to. “Little Women is Louisa May Alcott’s classic Civil War tale about the strength of family, and having the courage to follow one’s dreams. If you grew up with the story, our production will bring to life the characters you loved as a child. And even if you don’t know it, you’ll be truly entertained – this is a warm, humorous, family-friendly show, with stellar vocal and orchestral performances and powerful acting. Who could ask for anything more?” C. Lee Bates was the director behind the phenomenally successful musical The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, which broke new ground for stage productions at the Studio Theatre last year. She says that although Spelling Bee and Little Women are both musicals, they present very different challenges. “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee was a comedy, and relatively unknown to our audiences. Little Women is a story that generations of people have known and loved, and we’re very aware that we need to be true to the spirit and tradition of the piece. With strong vocal performances and a thrilling 11-piece orchestra, I’m confident that Perth audiences are going to love this show,” she said. Actors who perform in community theatre are a special breed who commit countless hours to honing their performances. Although they’re unpaid, they

We spoke to some of the cast members of Little Women, the Musical, to find out what made them want to be a part of this classic story.

Courtney Mason, who plays feisty, fearless Jo March, is a graduate of the Randolph Academy for the Performing Arts in Toronto. Courtney says that the character of Jo has many of the qualities she admires. “Jo refuses to be something that she

isn’t, no matter how much people expect her to be. She is strong, and she knows who she is and what she wants. I am definitely not as fearless as Jo, but portraying her is a welcome challenge!” said Mason. Julie Kevan, a talented singer and

veteran actor from the Ottawa area, is one of two actors who play the mother, Marmee. “Marmee has been a dream role for me,” Kevan said. “As a mother, she is such a strong role model, with so much patience, tenderness, love, and care. Her songs are powerful and very moving. She’s the heart and strength of the show, her spirit is beautiful.” Kyle Booth is a 25-year-old tenor who plays the role of “Laurie” Lawrence, a hopeless romantic who will do anything to find true love. “Laurie is a character a lot of people who fall in love can relate too,” he said. “The most challenging thing about playing this character is finding the balance between being a shy young boy at the beginning of the story, then a grown man later on. Working two completely different personalities – and how he interacts with the other characters at these two points of the story – has been a rewarding challenge for me.” Little Women, The Musical also stars Jackie LeClerc, Andrew McDougall, Justin Hills, David Wright, Mary Hills, Barb Guthrie, Emma Houlahan, and Lindsay Rewi. Music is by Jason Howland, lyrics by Mindi Dickstein. Music and vocal director is Laurel Tye. Opening night is Thursday, May 22, with performances May 23, 24, 30 and 31 at 8 p.m. and May 24, 25, 31 and June 1 at 2 p.m. Advance tickets are $20 cash at The Book Nook, and $22 cash at the door, or at Tickets Please, which accepts phone, credit card and online orders (613-485-6434; ticketsplease.ca).

Business â&#x20AC;&#x201C; On Saturday, May 10, franchisees, staff and thousands of volunteers at more than 400 M&M Meat Shops locations across Canada joined together to raise $1,075,000 for Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Colitis Canada (formerly known as the Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Colitis Foundation of Canada). Supporters from coast to coast lined up to celebrate M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day, raising funds to help find a cure for Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease and ulcerative colitis and to improve the lives of children and adults affected by these chronic diseases. To date, the annual event has raised more than $25,381,000 for this very worthy cause. May 10 marked the 26th anniversary for M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day and Canadians enjoyed thousands of hamburgers and hot dogs. Proceeds raised will go directly to Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Colitis Canada to invest in research, education, awareness and advocacy programs for Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and colitis, a disease that affects more than 233,000 Canadian men, women and children. This year, M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day was pleased to have 11-year-old Halifax resident, Jillian Robinson as Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Colitis Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s representative for the event. Jillian understands all too well what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like to live with ulcerative colitis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was diagnosed with ulcer-

More than $1 million was raised across Canada during May 10â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day to benefit the Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Colitis Foundation of Canada. More than 400 M&Mâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s locations participated, including locally in Carleton Place, Kemptville, Smiths Falls and Perth. Above, in Carleton Place, in front, Paul and Mary Lou Chamberlain of Carleton Place, whose daughter Amanda has Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease.

Decatur believes this amazing feat could not have been accomplished without the help of the thousands of volunteers and dedicated M&M Meat Shops franchisees, who tirelessly manned barbecues and promoted their event in local communities across the country. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canadians have more reasons to be concerned about Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and colitis than anyone else in the world. One in every 150 people is living with these chronic diseases â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a rate that ranks in the highest worldwide,â&#x20AC;? says Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Colitis Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief development officer, Terrance Slobodian. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are the Canadian diseases that affect the entire family â&#x20AC;&#x201C; moms and dads, brothers and sisters.

Here is the1938 Ford street rod owned by Jim Smith of Wellandport, Ontario.

in Canada and the U.S. In going to these shows, we have met a lot of wonderful people and have made many friends. Just love this sport! Thanks again for the great articles.” The Shirley Temple movie mentioned above came out in 1939, when Jim’s car was one year old. The ad for the movie at the Onyx Theatre in the Saskatchewan town of Biggar stated: “Showing today 3:30 to 9:30 Continuous.” Also included with the movie was a comedy and a news reel. And after the last show, the theatre held a “BIG DANCE” with music supplied by the Biggar Orchestra. Jim’s letter arrived in my mailbox within a day or two of the news on TV announcing that Shirley Temple had passed away at age 85. Jim Smith’s 1938 Ford coupe is a classic example of Art Deco styling with its curvaceous

grille and sleek body lines. The windshield can be cranked open at the bottom for an early form of air conditioning. When Jim’s car was new, it had mechanical brakes, with Henry Ford claiming that this design gave you “the safety of steel from pedal to wheel.” One year later, Ford switched to hydraulic brakes, which Jim has added to his ’38. His Ford when new had a flathead V8 engine with 221 cubic inches and 85 horsepower and a Windsor factory retail price of $845. I’m always looking for more stories.

‘He’s a Good Dog’ concert for LAWS June 5 Community – Juno Award winner and Port Dover native Fred Eaglesmith performs in Carleton Place at the town hall (137 Bridge Street) on Thursday June 5 at 8 p.m. The show is called ‘He’s a Good Dog’ concert as it is a fundraiser with net proceeds going to LAWS. For more than 35 years, the legendary Eaglesmith has toured towns and cities across the continent, singing about the people and places of this province. In doing so, he has earned international accolades, gold records, a spot on David Letterman and songs covered by recording starts such as Miranda Lambert, Allan Jackson and Toby Keith. Now Eaglesmith

says the time has come to bring his show back home to Ontario where it truly belongs. The upcoming concert at the town hall on June 5 is just one of the local shows he has planned for this year. Eaglesmith also thinks the smaller halls are the ideal venue for his Travelling Steam Show. The songs he writes and performs, with the help of his band – which includes Texas knockout Tif Ginn as opener and back-up vocalist, bassist Justine Fischer, Matty Simpson on guitar, mandolinist Mike Zinger and drummer Kori Heppner – seem particularly poignant and appropriate in these places, because they are genu-

inely tied to the lives, labours, trials, tribulations and triumphs of the everyday people who may visit them. The show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are available at www.fredeaglesmith.com for $35 or at Read’s Book Store on Bridge St. in Carleton Place. Should tickets be left they will sell at the door for $40. For further information, contact Ray at 613-257-5126. ‘He’s a Good Dog’ is a song Fred wrote many years ago about a dear friend. We will also have a pie auction with proceeds going to Operation Smile. The Town of Carleton Place is supporting the concert with a Community Enrichment Grant for facilities.

Lifestyle – Jim Smith of Wellandport, Ontario, writes: “Hello Bill, I really enjoy all your ‘Old Car Detective’ articles. I have a 1938 Ford Deluxe business coupe. I bought it from a fellow in Ayr, Ontario, in 1997. He told me he bought it in western Canada, where it sat in a barn for 40 years. “I think the barn was near Biggar, Sask., because of the piece of paper I found in the trunk advertising a Shirley Temple movie: ‘Susannah of the Mounties’ with Randolph Scott and Margaret Lockwood at the Onyx Theatre in that town. I also found a 1938 quarter and a 1942 dime in the car. My wife had the quarter made into a key fob. “The car has now been transformed into a street rod, which took three-and-a-half years. I retained the original look on the outside. It is powered by a 396 V8 with 700R4 transmission and a 9-inch Ford rear end with a Mustang II front end. The car also has a completely new frame. “My wife and I have a lot of fun driving it to shows from Moncton, NB, to Louisville, Kentucky, and Michigan, and lots of other shows

Lanark County throws support behind investigating hydro rates AEDs, for a total of 116 of the devices with public building access throughout the county. “Placing signage outside buildings, at main entrances and above the cabinets that house an AED promotes awareness of and the availability of an AED in a public access facility throughout Lanark County,” said Rick Hannah, emergency services co-ordinator. “Performing CPR and using a defibrillator before paramedics arrive can increase a person’s survival rate by up to 75 per cent.” CAO provides public works garage update Council accepted an information report about the ongoing project to see a new public works garage constructed on land beside the county administration and public works buildings on Christie Lake Road. So far a preliminary site plan design, road survey and draft floor plan have been completed. The proposed facility would have a second storey with 4,050 square feet for record storage for Archives Lanark and Lanark County. Council also approved a motion to proceed with tendering for upgrade work at the Union Hall facility, as well as to engage an architect to design the Perth garage. The initial estimate for the new building, site work, salt/sand storage, equipment storage and relocating the generator, as well as upgrades at Union Hall and architectural work, is $3.3 million. The project comes as the Perth garage on Wilson Street is at the end of its useful life.

ing for youth centres have been unsuccessful. “The cost of not investing in our youth can have significant impacts on our communities,” explained Mary Lou White, children’s services manager. “Some research now states that investment of $1 in prevention can save up to $17 in costs later.” The current funding of $200,000 per year is specifically targeted to support the executive director positions in the centres. They then pursue other funding opportunities and build capacity in the programs. Council heard the funding has provided stability and has allowed for growth, and that discontinuing or reducing funding would reduce services and possibly affect the future of the centres. Support in principle for continuing the funding gives the centres the ability to plan for another year. Lanark County has contributed $1.6 million since 2003.

Lifestyle – “Hi Brian, Like so many that write to you, I too enjoy your column and advice on a wide range of topics. I have a 2010 Ford Taurus with 85,000 km. The kilometres are light duty and mostly highway. Rarely would there be more than two passengers or a few suitcases. As of this week I have replaced three of four wheel bearings. Front two bearings were done six months ago. Right rear bearing was done this week. These are not inexpensive repairs. The OEM tires and rims on the car are 18-inch, my question is do today’s larger tires add significant stress on bearings and are the Taurus’ bearing assemblies up for the job? Are there other factors that might contribute to bearing failure?” Phil In my experience, unlike many parts on autos, wheel bearings don’t tend to fail strictly because of mileage. The experience on this Taurus isn’t usual according to my local dealer service and parts department contacts. The question on wheel size affecting these failures is a good one. While 18” tires and rims are large, the wheels are usually constructed of a lighter weight alloy which offsets the size. So as weight isn’t a factor, the improved grip of larger rubber might be. Let me explain. Drivers quickly adapt their driving styles to the limits of the vehicle they are operating. No one wants to be unsafe or a discourteous driver, but lighter vehicles with powerful

Car Counsellor BRIAN TURNER

engines build on very responsive suspension and steering systems, tends to bring unforeseen consequences. Sometimes the tire grip is just too much for the car given a particular set of road and weather conditions. Most wheel/hub bearing assemblies fail from excess forces being applied to them. Lateral impacts on curbs, direct collisions with potholes, constant poundings from unpaved roads, and even aggressive cornering can lead to their demise. Alloy wheels can exacerbate these problems as they tend to seize on the hubs over the course of a few months of Canadian winters. Then when it comes time for the seasonal tire changeover, techs must often resort to hammering the rims off. A heavy hammer is also often employed when trying to remove brake rotors during routine maintenance. All this pounding can have a negative effect on wheel bearings. My advice is to always stick with a well-known brand name part with the longest warranty possible when replacing a hub/ bearing. Ford recently changed the warranty on their replacement parts and most are now covered for two years with no distance limitation. There are plenty of cheap off-

shore after-market brands, but they seldom deliver a life-span most consumers expect for the price. When having the tires removed for rotation or seasonal change, ask the tech to paint a coating of heat-proof lubricant on the hub where the wheel contacts it. This might also make a big difference if you have to change a flat on the side of the road. Of course, avoiding curb kisses and potholes and wash-outs is up to the driver. The Rubber Association of Canada recently revealed some surprising stats from a Leger poll of more than 1,000 Canadian drivers completed in early April. With the automobile travel season at our doorstep it’s astounding that: • 69 per cent of drivers don’t check their tire inflation monthly, • 31 per cent think they only need to check their tire pressure when it appears tire pressure is low, • 45 per cent of motorists do not know where to find the correct inflation pressure for their vehicle, • 65 per cent do not know that tire pressures should only be measured when tires are cold. Other than the increased fuel consumption and shortened tire life to consider, the risk to road safety grows with each pound of air pressure lost. Underinflated tires can be a blow-out hazard waiting to happen, especially when rolling on a heavily loaded vehicle in warmer ambient temperatures. “These findings should be a wake-up call to Canadian motorists,” says Glenn Maidment,

president of The Rubber Association of Canada, which represents tire makers. “Drivers can guarantee optimal tire performance, lower their fuel bills and protect the environment simply by learning a few tire inflation facts and measuring air pressures monthly to ensure their tires are inflated to the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended level.” On Saturday, May 24 and Sunday, May 25, the Rideau Lakes ACCCC Flea Market, Craft Sale & Car Show (May 25) is on at the Lombardy Fairgrounds on Highway 15 (four miles southwest of Smiths Falls).

Calling on election candidates to sign up for 4 Lung Years

COUNTRY JUKEBOX

Lifestyle – Even though one in five people in Ontario has a serious lung disease, there is no coordinated provincial plan to address the growing lung health crisis. That is why the Ontario Lung Association is asking candidates in the June 12 election to take a deep breath and sign the 4 Lung Years Pledge – a promise that if elected they will support a comprehensive Lung Health Action Plan for Ontario. During the campaign, the Ontario Lung Association (@OntarioLung) and its lung health ad-

WED., AUG. 20 @ 8PM THURS., AUG. 21 @ 2PM & 8PM

vocates will be using social media to encourage party leaders and candidates to share photos of their signed 4 Lung Years Pledge. All Ontarians are invited to join the conversation – and share why they feel lung health should be made a priority – using hashtag #4LungYears. Of the four chronic diseases responsible for eight in 10 deaths in Ontario – cancers, cardiovascular diseases, lung disease and diabetes – only lung disease does not have its own coordinated provincial strategy.

“Lung health must become a top health priority in Ontario,” said George Habib, president and chief executive officer of the Ontario Lung Association. “A lung health action plan will not only improve the lives of the 2.4 million women, men and children living with lung disease, it will also save billions of health-care dollars.” The Ontario Lung Association is currently consulting with stakeholders throughout the province on the draft framework for an Ontario Lung Health Action Plan that will reduce the impact of lung disease,

improve lung health and save scarce health-care resources. “Every Ontarian who breathes benefits from policies that make lung health a priority in our province,” said Habib. “Therefore, we call on all candidates to sign the 4 Lung Years Pledge, a commitment that, if elected, they will work to implement the Ontario Lung Health Action Plan during their first four-year term.” The Lung Health Information Line – 1-888-344-LUNG (5864) – is staffed by certified respiratory educators.

The 12-year-old started growing his hair out in May 2012 in support of his mom Jackie, left, who was undergoing treatments for breast cancer at the time. His brother Jordan, right, was part of a group of volunteers from Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute (SFDCI) at last year’s Relay held on the track at SFDCI and will be back again this year volunteering.

adult cancer patients. On the fundraising side, Rilyn hopes to raise $1,000 for the cancer society. Anyone who would like to support Rilyn Taylor’s Head Shave Fund is encouraged to contact Jackie at 613-284-9451. Jackie says her co-workers at the downtown location of Tim Horton’s in Smiths Falls have been “heavily supportive” of the cause, having already contributed close to $200. While this is the first time Rilyn has taken part in the RFL, his brother Jordan who is a Grade 12 student at SFDCI volunteered through the school at last year’s event and plans to lend a helping hand again on June 13. Jackie who is still on the waiting list for reconstructive surgery hopes to participate in the Survivors’ Victory Lap that evening. Raising funds for the CCS to assist cancer research and support the many programs that the society’s Leeds, Grenville and Lanark Community Office offers to those who have cancer, cancer survivors and caregivers is very important for Jackie and not just because she is a cancer survivor. “We just lost one of our closest friends three weeks ago to cancer,” she shares. Anyone interested in learning more about the RFL in Smiths Falls or to register a team can visit relayforlife.ca/ smithsfalls or is encouraged to contact the Lanark, Leeds and Grenville Community Office of the CCS at 613-2671058 (toll-free 1-800-367-2913) or email lanarklg@ontario.ca. “Relay is quickly drawing near and my team is planning a great night,” says Bill McNicol, event chair. “If you don’t have a team already, there is still time. I know that everyone has someone in their life that has been touched by cancer. Come out and join us. We are all here to support those we love and, in some small way, we can help eradicate this disease.”

Twelve-year-old goes extra lengths Got Events? to raise funds for Relay For Life Editor’s note: Leading up to the June 13 Relay for Life in Smiths Falls, we will be highlighting the stories of some of the team members, activities and events scheduled to take place in a series of articles. Community – When Smiths Falls’ resident Jackie Taylor was undergoing radiation treatments for breast cancer in May 2012, her son Rilyn decided to show his support in a special way. Knowing that his mom was concerned about losing her hair, Rilyn decided to let his hair grow out in solidarity with her cancer fight. “Because she was going to lose her hair, I was going to grow mine out,” he says of his decision. While Jackie did not end up losing her hair, the mother of four was still moved by this act of love. “It was touching and it still is,” she says, adding that she is very proud of what Rilyn has done. Given the fact that Rilyn had a brush cut at the time, letting his hair grow was a radical change for him. He persevered, however, and has not had his hair cut for the past two years despite being taunted by some for his long locks. “Some people would call me a girl and make fun of me,” the 12-year-old notes. Now with his thick wavy hair extending down his back, the Grade 7 student at Chimo Elementary School has decided it’s time to have it cut off. And he’s decided to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) while doing it. At the Relay For Life taking place overnight on Friday, June 13 at the Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute (SFDCI) track, Rilyn will be having his head shaved by John Ovens of New Beginnings Hair Stylist in Smiths Falls. The head shaving will be taking place on the stage at 8 p.m. with the hair being donated to a charity that makes wigs for

Lyme disease is a concern â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Why you should take note Ticks can be infected with more than one type of bacteria that can cause human illness, hence guarding against tick bites will protect you from more than just Lyme disease. Here are some ways to protect yourself if you venture into forests or overgrown areas between the woods and open spaces: â&#x20AC;˘ Wear closed-toe shoes, long-sleeved shirts and pants â&#x20AC;˘ Pull your socks over your pant legs to prevent ticks from crawling up your legs â&#x20AC;˘ Wear light-coloured clothing to spot ticks easier â&#x20AC;˘ Use insect repellents that contain DEET or Icaridin. Repellents can be applied to clothing as well as exposed skin. Always read and follow label directions â&#x20AC;˘ Shower or bathe within two hours of being outdoors to wash away loose ticks â&#x20AC;˘ Do daily â&#x20AC;&#x153;full bodyâ&#x20AC;? checks for ticks on yourself, your children and your pets â&#x20AC;˘ If you find a tick on your skin, removing it within 24 to 36 hours usually prevents infection Symptoms Initial symptoms differ from person to person, and some people will not experience any symptoms, which makes Lyme disease very difficult to diagnose. Furthermore, others may experience mild symptoms like fever or a skin rash soon after being bitten, while others may suffer severe symptoms, but not for weeks after the bite. Signs and symptoms of Lyme disease can include one or a combination of the following with varying degrees of severity: fatigue; fever or chills; headache; muscle and joint pain, spasms, or weakness; numbness or tingling; swollen lymph nodes; skin rash; cognitive dysfunction, dizziness; nervous system disorders; arthritis and arthritic symptoms; heart palpitations, Untreated, symptoms can last years and include recurring arthritis, neurological problems, numbness and paralysis. Although not common, fatalities from Lyme disease have been reported. If you develop symptoms of Lyme disease, contact your healthcare provider right away, as the earlier you receive a diagnosis, the greater the chance of a successful treatment. If you saved the tick that bit you, bring it with you to your medical appointment as it may help the doctor in assessing your illness. Treatment Lyme disease can be effectively treated with two to four weeks of antibiotics. Depending on your symptoms, and if you are diagnosed in the later stages of the disease, you may require a longer course of antibiotics. Some people experience symptoms that continue more than six months after treat-

ment. Research continues into the causes of these persistent symptoms and methods of treatment. Getting a diagnosis of Lyme disease can be difficult because

symptoms vary from one person to another and may be similar to other infectious diseases that are spread by ticks. The agency has also recently de-

veloped a three-year action plan on Lyme disease that serves to lessen the diseaseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impact through continued and enhanced stakeholder engagement, public and clinician

education, and enhanced surveillance, as well as research, to improve diagnosis. Submitted by the Public Health Agency of Canada.

Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Lyme disease is a serious illness thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s present in Canada and spreading. Canadians at risk from Lyme disease include those, who live, work and/or play in close proximity to ticks that spread the disease. If not identified and treated early, Lyme disease can cause serious health issues. But there are simple and effective measures you can take to protect against it. As you prepare to spend time outdoors, learn more about Lyme disease and how to prevent it. What is Lyme disease? Lyme disease is a serious illness which can be spread by the bite of blacklegged ticks that are infected with the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi. In regions where blacklegged ticks are found, people can come into contact with ticks by brushing against vegetation while participating in outdoor activities, such as golfing, hiking, camping and gardening. Risk to Canadians While not all blacklegged ticks carry Lyme disease, populations of infected blacklegged ticks are growing. This means that the risk of contracting Lyme disease is on the rise across Canada. Blacklegged ticks can be active throughout much of the year; however, your risk of a tick bite is highest in the spring and summer months. Take steps to reduce your risk if you spend time outdoors in areas where there may be ticks. As ticks are very small and their bites are usually painless, you may not know youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been bitten, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to be on the lookout for ticks and the symptoms of Lyme disease. Where are ticks found? Blacklegged ticks are most often found in forests and the overgrown areas between the woods and open spaces, although itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible to be bitten outside of these areas. The following are areas where blacklegged tick populations have been confirmed or are establishing: Southern British Columbia; southeastern and south-central Manitoba; southern and eastern Ontario; southern Quebec; southern New Brunswick and Grand Manan Island; south shore and northern mainland Nova Scotia. Ticks donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t move far by themselves but they can attach to migratory birds, and may fall off far from their original location. For this reason, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible to find infected ticks in other areas than the ones listed above. Surveillance is ongoing to confirm other areas of spread. How to protect yourself Canadians are encouraged to spend time outdoors, be active and to remember to protect themselves against tick bites and Lyme disease.

Those interested in hosting the social media brand ambassador and having their business featured as part of Freemanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trip are encouraged to contact the OHTO at 1-855-6296486 or to Tweet to #OHletsgo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I look forward to meeting everyone and experiencing an authentic Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Highlandsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; summer!â&#x20AC;? she says. Residents and business owners in the region are encouraged to use the hashtag throughout the summer to interact with Freeman and offer â&#x20AC;&#x153;local gemsâ&#x20AC;? for her to visit. The OHTOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s summer campaign runs between May 15 and Aug. 31. In addition to connecting with the social media brand ambassador, the organization will also give city slickers an opportunity to win one of three â&#x20AC;&#x153;Great Escapeâ&#x20AC;? road trips to Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Highlands by voting for their favourite summer getaway at OhLetsGo.ca.

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Armed with a map, an iPad and a hashtag, the Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Highlands Tourism Organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (OHTO) new social media brand ambassador is hitting the road this summer, taking part in a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Great Escapeâ&#x20AC;? trip that will change the way first-time-visitors engage with our regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s summer tourism offering. Beginning the Victoria Day long weekend, Carly Freeman, a public relations graduate from Humber College in Toronto, will become the ultimate tourist in Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Highlands, acting as the face of the region and the eyes and ears of young, socially-connected and curious city slickers looking for an opportunity to get a taste of the travel experiences available between Haliburton County and the Ottawa Valley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My bags are packed. My iPhone is charged. And my itinerary is already booking up with exciting places to travel to and locals to meet,â&#x20AC;? says Freeman, whose summer â&#x20AC;&#x153;headquartersâ&#x20AC;? will shift between her apartment in Toronto and her familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home in Madoc. Freemanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family owns Hidden Goldmine Bakery in town, where she learned about the value of making personal connections with visitors long before she headed off to college in the big city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My dad would walk out from behind the counter, covered head to toe in white flour, and strike up conversations with customers,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It made me passionate about travel, realizing that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just as much about the people as it is about finding great muffins and
