News – Steve Clark has been re-elected as MPP of LeedsGrenville. But the victory was bittersweet. While he was happy to be voted in once again, he was also sad to have lost friends with whom he has served in the Legislature the past few years, after the Liberals emerged with a majority win. The Progressive Conservative MPP easily outdistanced his Liberal and New Democrat opponents, taking more than 50 per cent of the vote. According to Elections Ontario, Clark led with 23,201 or 56 per cent of the votes. Liberal Christine Milks was a distant second at 8,500 (20.5 per cent) with David Lundy of the NDP third at 7,219 (17.4 per cent). Green Party candidate Stephen Bowering came in with 2,054, followed by Harold Gabriel, the Libertarian candidate with 476 votes. The results as of Monday, June 16 were still considered unofficial. Clark’s victory is a bright spot for the Conservatives on an otherwise dismal night for the party. With the anticipation of a tight race for power in Ontario, the Liberals, led by Kathleen Wynne,

pulled away to a majority win. The Liberals now have control of the Legislature with 58 seats. The Conservatives have 28 with the NDP at 21. Calling this campaign, “incredibly draining,” Clark said he will continue to ensure his focus is on Leeds and Grenville and its needs. Looking forward he says hydro rates, opposition to the closure of the Kemptville Campus of the University of Guelph and working to keep the casino in Gananoque and the Township of Leeds and the 1000 Islands will be top priorities. As for Lundy he feels good about the campaign. “I’m feeling great. We had a good response at the door and way more support than we had before. We expected a great response at the poll this time as we worked very hard; the whole team did. I think this is the biggest campaign the NDP have put on in Leeds-Grenville and I believe it will be the most successful,” he commented. And while Milks may not have won locally, her party did well on the provincial level. “I’m happy!

"We're making progress, we said we wanted to identify our priorities and we did that," said Don Sherritt, vice chair North Grenville Police Services Board. Not only did the group come up with what they saw as the priorities in North Grenville, but several of the stakeholders volunteered to put pen to paper and articulate those priorities in more depth. "They'll have their best shot in to Don (Sherritt) by Tuesday of next week; Don and I'll bat them around – may edit and revise and re-consult the original writer – all in aid of bringing the group back again on July 11 for the next step in going forward," said Hugh Russell, community justice advocate and the meeting's moderator and presenter.

The meeting kicked off with Russell presentation in which he outlined the social determinants of safety and wellbeing, including: poverty, addiction, mental health, substandard housing, negative parenting, ignorance and illiteracy and inequities. The idea behind the model is to move away from a system that simply mobilizes emergency responders to one that identifies risk factors within the community, works to reduce the identified risks and mitigates elevated risks before they turn into a crisis requiring emergency responders such as the police. "This is about creating risk driven community safety versus incident driven community safety," said Russell. To that end, Russell explained

it's necessary to identify and focus on the risks that can lead individuals into crisis and to engage the community assets that can provide the necessary intervention before it becomes an emergency. The real sticking point becomes collaboration according to Russell. "Many agencies are funded based on their case load, so it's in their fiduciary interest to keep their case loads and not reduce them by sharing,” he explained. However for the model to work that’s one of the things that will have to happen since most issues are multidisciplinary and don't happen in isolation. One way to approach the initiative Russell told his audience is to identify the most vulnerable

group or groups and from there to identify the risk factors that contribute to their vulnerability, then select the protective factors that can reduce or mitigate those risks (depending on what stage they're at) formulate benchmark objectives, and come up with strategies with specific tasks that can be performed by one or more agency. “What I’d like you to do is try to imagine where you think your organization would fit into the model and what sort of strengths you could bring to the model,” said Sherritt. Breaking into small groups after the presentation, the participants came back with three main risk factors.

CDSBEO receives two national awards for mental health initiatives, leadership cant steps forward the CDSBEO has taken in raising awareness of the importance of recognizing that mental health issues happen as a part of life, that mental illness must be viewed no differently than physical illnesses, and that acceptance and reaching out for early intervention is key to recovery and maintaining wellness through prevention, supports and treatments.” “We are so honoured to be recognized in this way by the Mood Disorders Society of Canada,” noted Gartland. “This is truly an important initiative for the board, and the support we’ve received from MDSC has been paramount in our success. It is truly a collaborative effort, and we know these initiatives have begun to instill a new culture of awareness for our students and staff.” Board chair Brent Laton remarked, “We are certainly honoured to receive this award in recognition of the efforts of our board in the area of mental health. We are very proud to have partnered with this leading national organization as we work towards raising awareness and reducing the stigma surrounding mental illness.” After the presentation of the Jordan James Pickell Award, Starzynski made a surprise presentation of the second award to Gartland. “Bill has changed the face of mental health for this board. He isn’t afraid to talk of his

own family experiences, and this takes away the stigma and the mystique. The Mood Disorders Society of Canada is very proud to be associated with the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario. We have had the privilege of working with Bill and the team he leads. They have been trailblazers in recognizing the need for mental health education,” he said. Clearly unprepared for the honour, Gartland accepted the award. “This is a complete surprise!” he remarked. “I accept this award gratefully, but I accept it on behalf of all of our staff and board members who have helped support and implement these initiatives. ” Laton commented, “I would like to congratulate Bill on behalf of the members of the board; we truly appreciate him bringing these mental health initiatives to our students and staff.” The CDSBEO has implemented many initiatives as part of an ongoing board-wide mental health program, including the Elephant in the Room Anti-Stigma Campaign for awareness about mental illness in the workplace and in the classroom, WITS/ LEAD programs in response to bullying, proactive circles and restorative practices for conflict resolution, and a and a new student bully reporting app, called EMPOWER, which encourages student voice, promotes positive mental health and helps stop student victimization.

(But) the people are always right in a democracy.â€? Raising his glass of beer, he added, “We toast to democracy tonight.â€? Afterwards, Hillier blamed outgoing party leader Tim Hudak’s 100,000 job cuts pledge for giving him an “uphill battle,â€? and “causing reluctance,â€? for some of his previous voters to back him again. He admitted that his majority in the riding was “not as large a majority as last time.â€? He said that the policy had not been “communicated effectively‌ (and) it hit close to home.â€?

Lanark County Interval House: 35 years of striking back at violence against women By ASHLEY KULP akulp@perfprint.ca

R0012762317_0619

News – As Lanark County Interval House (LCIH) honours 35 years serving our communities this year, they’ve continued to evolve to meet the needs of women and children facing violent situations. The organization has a deep history, which dates back to May 1979 when LCIH officially opened, though its shelter was already occupied in April by women needing emergency services. “When you think about 35 years, we’ve done some great things and we’ve served women well, but the issues are the same. Women still need a safe place to go and children still need a safe place to go,” said LCIH executive director Erin Lee. “...We will continue to push the envelope, talk about (violence) out loud and take risks. People see us (LCIH) as the rebels, that we’re radical man haters and we’re not. We’re women trying to move forward the agenda of women; that they deserve access to quality of life, education and to feel safe in their homes without feeling a threat.” In establishing the organization, The Hub in Almonte was a big support, along with founding LCIH member Fern Martin. “When Lanark County Interval House was started, it was shortsighted in thinking that violence would end, but 35 years later, it hasn’t ended,” Lee stated. “... The roots of the agency are solid, from our founding mothers to now. We’re not shaking, we’re not compromising on those roots and that’s important.” At the heart of LCIH is its 24-hour

emergency shelter in Carleton Place, which gives women and children a safe place to reside if their safety is threatened. A big expansion for the organization came in 2002 when they opened their first outreach office in Carleton Place to offer services to women who weren’t residing at the shelter, but needed support.

Almonte’s Johnny Spinks. “It’s our way to celebrate (the 35th anniversary) and kick off summer,” noted LCIH executive director Erin Lee. Town and Country Chrysler of Smiths Falls’ Hugh Colton will serve as emcee for the festival, set to run from 2 to 8 p.m. at the park (gates open at 1 p.m.). Admission is just $10 and children 12 and under get in for free. Tempt your tastebuds with a barbecue and fresh lemonade, operated by LCIH on site, as well as catering provided by Dennis Burn of Leatherworks Catering. Concert goers are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs and

the festival will move under the park’s cover all structure in the event of rain. Tickets are still available for Hoot in the Holler and can be purchased at: Smiths Falls Memorial Community Centre (613-284-4124 ext. 6103); Pakenham General Store (613-6245280); Clayton General Store (613256-1947); Beckwith Township office (613-257-1539); Carleton Place & District Chamber of Commerce Visitor Centre (613-257-1976); Shadowfax in Perth (613-267-6817); Doree’s Habit in Almonte (613-256-8837) and Merrickville (613-269-9322; or call the LCIH administration line at 613-2573469 ext. 27.

At that time, two new programs began to be offered: transition support for women re-establishing themselves in the community through finding them safe housing, employment and education; and the child and youth program. Today, LCIH runs two children’s programs, one at the shelter and one at their outreach offices. “These programs work directly with

for multiple families. It helps to give the message to the women and children who come to stay at the shelter that they are valued and cared for at a time of great upheaval in their lives.” Over the years, LCIH has had a strong focus on youth as well and two Status of Women Canada grants between 2009 and 2012 allowed them to create the Where is the Love? project to reach teens in high schools and the online Truth for Rural Youth project gave youth a chance to interact and talk about relationships. Funding has ended for these projects, but LCIH still operates the Truth for Rural Youth website ( HYPERLINK “http://trylanarkcounty.com” http://trylanarkcounty.com) and with the help of generous partners, continue to offer a Could This be Love? conference in Perth, attended by high school students across the county. “We wouldn’t have any youth conferences if it weren’t for hospitals and service clubs. We get a little bit (of funding) from everywhere to do the best kind of conferences we can to give the youth a voice,” Lee noted, stating that youth have had a “pivotal influence” on the types of services offered by LCIH. In 2013, LCIH also had the opportunity to enhance their services even more by establishing a court support program for the county. For 8.5 hours a week, the court support worker helps women dealing with the family court system. Most recently, Lee said she is proud of the strong partnerships and relationships LCIH has formed with local agencies, including the Ontario Provincial See LCIH page 9

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

Impact of proposed bill could see small farms disappear, says reader DEAR EDITOR: I have recently become aware of the dire implications for our Canadian food supply buried in Bill C-18, which is about to receive second reading in Canada’s parliament. Contained in the bill are alterations to regulations governing how seed can be cleaned and stored. This affects how farmers have saved seed for thousands of years from one years’ crop to plant the following year. This is referred to as Farmer’s Privilege. Without being necessary to conform to international standards, as we already meet them, the government of Stephen Harper is making changes that invite multinational seed corporations (Monsanto is one of them) to sell ‘approved’ seed to farmers who, also due to these changes, will find it difficult to save their seed legally. Because the seed the corporations are purveying are IP (Intellectual Property) and protected by legal means, the seed company can potentially charge not only for the seed, which is normal practice, but also impose fees for the season’s processes, such as fertilizing, harvesting, and selling crops. In addition, any neighbouring farm that receives pollen blown over from an IP protected plant becomes subject to the same fees. The likely environmental damages from these seed include: increased monoculture and subsequent loss of plant diversity; the IP plants require

more fertilizers, which have a greater impact on our ground water; IP seed is genetically modified (GMO), which runs counter to the growing movement amongst Canadians for healthy, locally grown food. The impact of this bill will see our small farms disappear because of a far greater debt-load from increased costs, fees and fertilization There is a wealth of information available on the National Farmer’s Union site (nfu.ca). Look for Stop Bill C-18. Because this bill will receive second reading soon, it’s important that our government MPs and the Minister of Agriculture receive messages from us that this attack on our food supply will not be tolerated by Canadians. This requires action. Call your MP’s office; download a petition from nfu.ca and gather a minimum of 25 signatures to be presented to parliament; tell your friends. This is an issue for all of us who live in Canada, and wish to protect our and future generations right to eat wholesome food. We need to retain our autonomy to grow the foods that are good for us, not feed corporations that are willing to sacrifice our farmland ecology and diverse food supply. Kate Kechnie Carleton Place

COMMENTARY

Keep on fighting Editorial – The fight against cancer is as strong as ever if Relay for Life events in Mississippi Mills, Smiths Falls and Brockville are any indication. The Leeds, Grenville and Lanark branch of the Canadian Cancer Society wrapped up its Relay for Life activities for another year after the Mississippi Mills event June 6 at Gemmill Park in Almonte and the Brockville (Row’s Corner Fairground) and Smiths Falls (Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute) fundraisers June 13. Targets fell short, but the Mississippi Mills event raised more than $101,000 (with a goal of $135,000). Brockville brought in just over $102,000 (organizers hoped for $155,000), and Smiths Falls, with a goal of $95,000, raised $55,020. So goals weren’t met, but that doesn’t mean there should be a damper on these events. People still came together and raised funds for cancer research. And had fun doing it. That counts for something. In Smiths Falls, the Cancer Kicking Cousins team raised $8,427 on their own and Mississippi Mills teams PAR-TEE GIRLS and For the Love of Dido brought in $14,442 and $11,027, respectively. These are success stories that should be shared. The all-night walk in the fight to end cancer is something every person should experience in their lifetime. The sheer support as team members band together to walk a track into the wee hours of the morning, paired with the emotion of the survivor’s lap and luminary ceremony, are something to behold. Walking past those luminaries that line the track, each with a name of a loved one battling the vicious disease emblazoned on its side, is quite a sight to behold. It puts into perspective why people choose to Relay: it’s for their family members, mailman, teacher, neighbour or friend. It’s so that someday future generations won’t have to hear the words “you’ve got cancer.” We have to keep fighting.

Uncle Lou’s extravagant gift brings tears of joy Lifestyle – We could hear the horn long before we could see the car. It was a horn like no other heard in all of Renfrew County. We knew it was Uncle Lou! He usually let Mother know when he was coming. But sometimes, he just arrived, like it was an everyday occurrence to drive all the way from New York City just to visit us out on the farm. By the time his big black Buick pulled into the yard, driving down our long lane off the Northcote Side Road, Everett had run to open the gate wide, Audrey had replaced the Eaton’s catalogue for the orange wrapping papers in the outhouse, Mother had changed her apron to one spanking clean, and the rest of us circled the yard jumping up and down like jackrabbits. Even Father had stopped whatever he was doing in the barns, and joined us, ready to greet Uncle Lou and his black Buick with the big shiny brass American Eagle on the rad of the car.

Mother, as usual, whenever her brother came from New York, was crying. It took me a long time to learn the difference between crying because you were sad or crying because you were overcome with joy. Mother was overcome with joy! Uncle Lou pulled the car up close to the back door of the house, and when he got out, he swung Mother around like she was a toy doll, and then he pumped Father’s hand, and then grabbed each of us into a bear hug, one that took my breath away. Uncle Lou never came empty handed. And I tried not to make it look too obvious, but I couldn’t help looking into the back of the car, and there were boxes upon boxes, and in the front seat were brown paper bags. And I knew without a doubt, he had stopped in Renfrew and bought bags of oranges, bananas, grapes, and a bag of lemons for Mother...all Vice President & Regional Publisher Mike Mount mmount@metroland.com 613-283-3182, ext. 104

things we would never dream of adding to our Saturday morning shopping list. It was like Christmas...right in the middle of summer! I couldn’t take my eyes off the back of the car. But Uncle Lou didn’t seem to be in any great hurry to unload his luggage or the boxes. He did reach in and take out the bags of fruit though, which caused Mother to shed another great pile of tears!

was made of gold. In fact, we all thought the big eagle on the rad was pure gold, until Uncle Lou corrected us and said it was brass. Emerson was rubbing his hand over it and making clucking sounds of approval. “Sure like that bird,” he kept saying. With his arm tight around Mother’s waist, Uncle Lou headed into the house, and ordered the boys to unload the car. First to come out were the many boxes, some with Macy’s department store printed on them, others just plain boxes tied with ribbons and string. Then came Uncle Lou’s luggage. Just looking at his suitcases, all made of smooth tan cowhide, confirmed in my young mind once again, that Uncle Lou had to be the richest man in all of New York City. Uncle Lou also had a good memory. Without even opening the boxes, he knew exactly which one was to go to each of us.

were yards of beautiful silk material, and a purse made of genuine leather in bright red! I couldn’t imagine such luxury! My box held a beautiful pair of white ankle stockings, with real lace around the tops, just like bad Marguirite wore to the Northcote School, and books...how I loved owning my very own books. Then, all that was left was a box which Uncle Lou kept apart from all the rest. He held it under his arm, and I wondered if he had brought something by mistake, because he didn’t look like he was in any hurry to hand it to someone. When we were finished with opening all the wonderful gifts, Uncle Lou finally handed Mother the box from under his arm. “It’s for the whole family,” he said, but Mother was to open it. Mother sat down on a kitchen chair with the box in her lap.

circled around her, and I could feel excitement right down to my toes. She seemed to take forever to untie the strings, and then she peered in the box, and was into the tears again. What she took out of the box almost caused the rest of us to cry along with her. There nestled in mounds of white tissue paper was a brass American eagle exactly like the one on Uncle Lou’s big black Buick! Only this one was on a pedestal. Emerson, of course, wanted to hold it. But Mother had a death grasp on it, and she kept rubbing it with the tail of her white apron. Where to put it was the next question. Emerson, never short on ideas thought it could be attached to the hood of the old Model T. The old Model T, missing a door, painted two different colours, and with a rad that had to be opened every few miles to pour in more water! And so it was decided. It would sit on top of the ice box. The new ice box that grandfather had bought from Barnett’s in Renfrew and now sat kitty-cornered

in the kitchen. Audrey was told to take off the geranium plant, give the top a good wipe with a clean dishcloth, and when all that was done, Mother got up and as if she was laying a cornerstone at an historic building, she put the American brass eagle in the very centre of the ice box. Not a word was spoken as we stood there like mutes, admiring this new and wonderful addition to our old log house. There was some discussion about its being put on the twig table in the parlour with the bible, but Audrey pointed out that the parlour was seldom used, and no visitor would ever see it. And so it was decided. The American Eagle, identical to the one on Uncle Lou’s Buick, would have its home on our oak ice box, where it would be the first thing anyone would notice, coming in the kitchen.

Initiatives such as the annual Take Back the Night Walk in Carleton Place in September, and November’s Violet Femmes fundraiser, have been successful for LCIH, as well as the establishment of the As Good As New Store in Carleton Place, a thrift outlet that raises funds for the organization. “We try to keep our hands in as many pies,” said Lee. Heather Whiting, LCIH’s volunteer and fundraising co-ordinator said she’s proud of what the organization has accomplished, but there’s still much to be done. She admitted that public awareness and

spreading their message, is key. “Women have come a long way, but there’s still a ways to go,” she said. “Without public awareness, we’ll never break the stigma of women feeling ashamed for being in a situation that is entirely not their fault.” According to Lee, legislators need to be pushed into doing more. “There needs to be a national action plan, to deal with national violence and Aboriginal violence,” she stated. “No one is actively doing anything about it...and it has to be a priority.” Over the years, Lee admitted that sometimes LCIH’s activities can be sensationalized or misrepresented, but she wants people to know one thing: “We’re still here, we’re still trying to honour women and children and trying to prevent more violence.”

Route change The recreational kayaker, who started kayaking in 2005, is changing things up a bit this year and making the route a bit more challenging. Instead of his traditional 110kilometre voyage from Perth to Ottawa, Raby will instead be leaving from Westport, kayaking to Ottawa, increasing the route to 135 kilometres. “It’s a bit different and makes it a little bit tougher for me because I have to paddle the Big Rideau (system),” he said. “…Westport seems like a nice place to start.” He likes to change the route to keep it fresh. Previously, he’s done four paddles from Kingston to Ottawa and two from Perth to Ottawa. “I make it longer and tougher as

I get older,” Raby joked. He’ll also have more company along the waves. Son Nicholas, who usually joins him for a portion of the trip each year, will be on hand again and so will Susan Johnston. She will be raising funds for the Heart & Stroke Foundation. She heard about Raby’s fundraiser as they are both members of the Lanark County Camera Club and asked if she could join in. “She’s a pretty avid paddler and is passionate about kayaking and photography and wanted to raise money for the Heart & Stroke Foundation,” Raby explained. “I figured we could support each other on the water. I’m looking forward to it.” “It’s nice to have someone paddle with you that’s passionate about the same types of things as you,” he added. He’s hoping to complete it within four days, beginning on Aug. 9, but has given himself until Aug. 14, if needed. “It all depends on the weather and how I feel, and more importantly, if there are good places to stop and have a shower,” he said. Raby plans to stop in Rideau Ferry, Merrickville and possibly Kars and Manotick. While he’s out on the water, he paddles up to the water’s edge to collect donations. Those experiences are ones he treasures the most. “Two or three years ago now, I paddled up and somebody near Kars reached in his pocket and pulled out a $100 bill. I offered him change, but he said ‘I’m pretty flush today, so here,’” Raby remembers. “It totally blew my mind. I can’t possibly forget that sort of thing.” “Then last year, I was paddling near Manotick and a woman was sitting by the bank at her property and I thought I’d stopped there before. I went up and didn’t have to say anything. She said she knew I would stop

again and handed me $20,” he continued. “Things like that always make me feel really good.” As for why he keeps doing it, his answer is simple. “There’s just something inside me that keeps driving me to do this,” he said. “This is just my way of trying to contribute something and say to other folks that I care.” Donations can also be made to Kayaking for Cancer online at http://convio. cancer.ca/goto/kayakingtobeatcancer.

Community – Each August, it’s become a tradition to see Bruce Raby kayaking along the Rideau Canal to raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society and this summer will be no different. The Perth resident will embark on the voyage Aug. 9, which has raised close to $30,000 for the cancer society since he began. As with last year, he’s asking for 100 per cent of the proceeds to go directly to the Lanark, Leeds and Grenville unit of the society. “I’d like the donations to be used in our community to help individuals living with cancer right now,” Raby said. “It (funds raised) won’t help find a cure, but it goes a long way to help people dealing with cancer now. If I raise $4,000 to $5,000, then I’m happy to see it help people.” Raby is getting a head start on fundraising beginning Saturday, June 28 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Carleton Place Walmart, which will match all cash donations made instore on that day. “It’s great because they match dollar for dollar and last year, contributed around $600,” he stated. Next up will be Steve’s Independent Grocer in Carleton Place on July 5, and then for two days, July 12 and Aug. 3, Raby will be at Barnabe’s Independent Grocer in Perth. He is planning to be at all locations from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. “With four days of fundraising in stores, I’d like to raise $500 each day and I’m getting good at that,” he said. Those interested can also make a donation to Kayaking to Beat Cancer at the LCBO locations in Westport, Portland and Perth, where Raby will be participating in their community coin box program from June 22 to July 19. “I really appreciate the support of businesses and that they are letting me fundraise in their stores,” he said.

own personal page, and raise their own funds to go towards Kayaking to Beat Cancer. As an added incentive, the first 10 virtual paddlers who raise $400 will receive a free Kayaking to Beat Cancer T-shirt. To say thank you to those who give, anyone who makes a $20 donation will be entered into a draw for one of Raby’s prints. “I’ve been doing this (raffle) for a few years now and it’s an opportunity to share one of my images. People seem to really enjoy my prints, so I thought I’d keep doing it,” he stated. For more information on Kayaking to Beat Cancer, call Amanda Gifford, fundraising co-ordinator of the Lanark, Leeds and Grenville unit of the Canadian Cancer Society, at 613-267-1058.

Excellent author My interest in Hanover began when I discovered that one of my favourite authors, Bill Bryson, resided there with his family for a number of years after returning to his native United States (he’s a native of Des Moines, Iowa) following 20 years living and writing in Great Britain. Bryson is a newspaper writer/editor turned author which partly explains my interest in the man and his work. I won’t use a lot of space to promote one writer, not even one as good as Bry-

Lifestyle – With summer scheduled to officially arrive on Saturday what better time to write about some of the great adventures which are available to us in this part of North America. A few weeks ago I offered a few details about our spring driving vacation in New England and in particular how we managed to fool the weather prognosticators. The predicted showers were lingering nearby in many cases. We could see them in the distance. Yet they seemed to part and disappear whenever we arrived in a new community or district. In southeastern Vermont we stopped and walked around the picture perfect community of Windsor with its stately homes and which reminded Frank LeBlanc of his native Nova Scotia. As outlined in the earlier column we also crossed and photographed the WindsorCornish covered bridge. The 460-foot structure, which links Vermont and New Hampshire, is the longest two-span covered bridge in the world and the longest wooden bridge in the United States. After scoping out and taking pictures of a few other less spectacular covered bridges we criss-crossed the Connecticut River (the waterway divides Vermont and New Hampshire) before arriving in the busy town of Lebanon, NH where we made a brief pit stop. We had less than a week to complete the itinerary I had put together. Our second major destination on this particular day was the town of Hanover NH which is just north of Lebanon. I have wanted to visit Hanover for some time but on our previous visits we always had something else on the agenda. This time I wasn’t going to be denied! My wife and the LeBlancs didn’t know what to expect, I’m sure. But afterward all three said how much they had enjoyed the experience. There were three reasons I wanted to see Hanover, well four really. The town of 11,000 is the home of Dartmouth College one of the so-called Ivy League schools. The Ivy League is actually an athletic conference. But the eight member universities, all located in the American northeast, are among the most wellknown and prestigious in the US (the world for that matter). Among them are Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts; Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut; Princeton University in Princeton, New Jersey and Columbia University in New York City. Dartmouth, with an undergraduate enrolment of just over 4,000 students, is the smallest of the eight schools. In truth, seeing Dartmouth College was my third reason for visiting Hanover. The fourth reason is because Brad Ausmus, the new manager of the Detroit Tigers, is a Dartmouth alumnus. As regular readers already know, the Tigers are my favourite Major League Baseball team.

Carleton Place teen travels to Florida for North American pageant

Community – Carleton Place teen, Haven Lamothe, knows the feeling of being a princess for a day is magical, and what better place to make this dream come true once again than near Cinderella’s castle? June 24 to 28 the 15-year-old local girl will be one of three Canadian competitors (and the only Ontario resident) to take part in the Miss Teen American Beauty pageant in Kissimmee, Florida. “It’s a completely different experience,” the local hopeful said. The upcoming competition will be held inside the Osceola High School in Kissimmee. America is known for its pageants with girls taking part in competitions before they can walk. The upcoming competition, hosted by Harrison Productions L.L.C., welcomes competitors from the age of toddlers to those in their golden years. Lamothe will be competing in the 15 to 19-yearold category and is expecting the competition to be stiff. “I’m just going to go out there and laugh and have fun,” she said. This step into an international competition came after a year of introduction into the pageant world. It all started in January 2013 when Lamothe attended the Miss Teen Ontario competition and came home with the Miss Teen Lanark County crown. That year of taking part in community events and reaching out to organizations struck a cord with Lamothe and she wanted to do more. This brought her to Miss Teen Canada competition last July where she cheered some of her new pageant friends on to victory and had a week to remember in Toronto. Following this she had more

friends forever. You always have that experience to share together.” In addition to new friends, the pageant circuit has taught Lamothe how to manage her time, speak well in public, and overall how to be a confident young lady. She jokes: “Pageants are the same as sports but you’re in better shoes.” The experience hasn’t been all fun and games. Lamothe said her desire to take part in such competitions has come with a lot of bullying and jealousy from her peers and some adults. It’s during these times that her pageant family comes in handy and encourages her to take the next step. The 15-year-old was invited to enter the Miss Teen American Beauty pageant by Miss Teen Canada director, Christi Woolard who has been following the Carleton Place girl’s progress through the last year. Lamothe said she was surprised to receive the invitation having not placed at nationals or regionals, but hopes her growth in

each pageant she competes in comes through. The Miss Teen American Beauty pageant focuses on assisting the girls in their personal development through beauty, style and cultural appreciation. The four-day competition is four full days of non-stop activity. This includes a glamour slumber party and a day at Downtown Disney amongst many hours of choreography rehearsals. Greco gym in Carleton Place is helping Lamothe become her fittest self by sponsoring her with access to their facilities until the competition. Regardless of the outcome this June, Lamothe plans to put away her fourinch heels for the time being and focus her efforts on gaining modeling experience and preparing for her senior years of high school (she is currently finishing up Grade 10 at Notre Dame Catholic High School in Carleton Place). She hopes to one day use her public speaking skills she learned in pageants in a public relations career.

Celebrating 20 years of music memories Community – The Carleton Place and District Community Band (above) held a special concert titled ‘Celebrate Musical Memories’ to mark its 20th anniversary on Saturday, May 31 at the Carleton Place Town Hall. The evening was hosted by Carleton Place Mayor Wendy LeBlanc. Special guests during the celebration included Danny Albert on violin and Max Donaldson (right) from Notre Dame Catholic High School.

is worth the trip in and of itself. We enjoyed lunch in a downtown establishment with plenty of Dartmouth sports memorabilia and a seafood chowder that had Frank, the Maritimer, smiling from ear-to-ear. He didn’t leave a drop of the New England specialty. Hiking the AT On the way out of the restaurant Wendy spotted the last piece of the puzzle. A sign telling us that we were walking on the Appalachian Trail. An easy part of the trail to be sure, but none-the-less we can now say we walked a small portion of the AT. Of course we have a huge distance to go to even approach the difficult odyssey which is hiking the AT. Bryson and his friend did well by the way. But they didn’t make the entire distance. Only a small number actually finish the rugged and difficult

“marathon” hike. About 2,000 set out to do it annually. Just one in four complete the journey. The sign in downtown Hanover directed us to a point on the edge of town where the “real AT” disappears into the bush and heads back into the mountains. The route is rough and is marked by white blazes on tree trunks and rocks. The formidable trail passes through 14 states. The vast majority is wilderness although it does pass through or near many centres. The AT also crosses main highways and rivers at various points. Hikers carry everything they need on their backs and as our struggles with a few bags of purchases in downtown Hanover demonstrated, we’re probably not about to set off along the most difficult section of the AT, which is the New England portion. I do hope to return and walk a longer part of it sometime though. The four of us enjoy walking and even an afternoon junket along a portion of

the AT would be something special to add to our list of life’s experiences. For the most ardent hikers and outdoor enthusiasts among my readership the AT is a challenge you should definitely consider. Anyone else who simply enjoys an interesting

travel experience should think about visiting the areas I have outlined this week. Not terribly far afield and well worth the effort! If you have a comment or question for Jeff Maguire he can be reached by email at: jeffrey. maguire@rogers.com.

Gaslight entertains at Full Circle Theatre in Perth. Above, Tegan Mackey, Kathie Reid, David Bird and James Benda capture the tension and excitement of the BarnDoor Productions play. The classic mystery-thriller runs Thursday through Sunday this week at Full Circle Theatre in Perth.

Gaslight a crowd pleasing thrill ride at Full Circle Theatre Arts – Patrick Hamilton’s mystery-thriller Gaslight has been around forever. It’s one of the true classics of the thriller genre and you’d think that every nuance would have been explored by now, but Perth’s BarnDoor Productions’ (BDP) new edition of the script brings new excitement and new thrills to the play and turns it into a fastpaced crowd-pleaser that is full of surprises and excitement. Opening night audience members called it “tightly directed and beautifully acted”, “an actor’s play that lets them play all of the nuances.” One even said “When intermission came, I didn’t want the act to end. I wanted more!” From set and lighting to casting, the show is receiving high praise from patrons. In particular, the quality of the performances and the depth of the talent on stage is being singled out. “From supporting roles to leads, they are all so strong!” said a patron. Veteran Kathie Reid as the dour cook Elizabeth and newcomer Emily Richardson as the saucy maid Nancy each have their moment to shine, whether it is Reid creating suspense by simply holding a plate (and her breath) while events happen offstage or Richardson setting her sights (and more) on the master of the house. They also provide strong support for the principals in several other scenes. James Benda is the master of the house, Jack Manningham and he alternates between quiet authority and terrifying

emotional heights at the twist of a word. This is possibly Benda’s best performance in a resume that includes BDP’s Sleuth and their all-time second-best seller Maggie’s Getting Married. David Bird was, at one time, a real-life London police officer, so it should be no surprise that he excels at playing a London police officer. Inspector Rough is the prototype for the on-stage British police inspector: he is funny, dramatic, driven and, when needed, physical. Rough is the catalyst that sets the plot in motion and Bird pushes it along with energy and authority. The whole play revolves around the character of Mrs. Manningham – Bella. Onstage for about 85 per cent of the show, Tegan Mackey swings between complacent housewife, frightened invalid and, finally, wild insanity without a break and makes it all believable and sympathetic. The final moments of Bella’s breakdown bring the audience to the edge of their seat with gasping anticipation. It’s a show full of visual excitement, as well. Set in Victorian London, in the era of gaslight and horse-drawn carriages, the play benefits from a set that is itself gathering high praise for authenticity and beauty. From genuine period furniture to flickering gaslamps, it’s a large part of the show, as is the accompanying soundtrack of music by Jean Sibelius, which puts the audience in the right frame of mind prior to the show and keeps them there throughout.

Along with that, the lighting is suitably patchy and flickering, reinforcing the mood of the play. The final element of the package is that the script, which has recently fallen into the public domain, has been trimmed from a lengthy and somewhat old-fashioned three-act format to a fastmoving two-act version. BDP has taken some 39 pages (about one-third) out of the original script, leaving a play that is lean and exciting from start to finish. The production lasts just over one hour and 45 minutes, including a 15-minute intermission, but in that time, audiences are telling producers that they are treated to some great theatre, superb performances and a tight, highly entertaining play. It’s best summed up in the words of the New Yorker Magazine’s review of the 1938 Broadway production: “I can give you only one clue – GO SEE IT!” Gaslight concludes its run with performances June 19, 20 and 21 at 7:30 p.m. and June 22 at 1:30 p.m., at the Full Circle Theatre, 26 Craig Street, Perth, near Last Duel Park. Note the special summer curtain times, one-half hour ahead of BDP’s usual. Tickets are $22 at the door; $20 reserved; $10 for students. Simply call 613-267-1884 for reservation. No credit cards required; cash at the performance is requested. For more information, go to www.barndoorproductions. ca. Submitted by BarnDoor Productions. THE EMC - 24 - Thursday, June 19, 2014

The BIA Lambs Down Park Festival on Saturday June 21 10am until 3pm. Come celebrate important history while having a lot of fun at the Carleton Place Business Improvement Association (BIA) Lambs Down Park Festival! The festival celebrates the lamb wool industry, with Carleton Place being the largest distribution centre for lamb wool in Canada!

known leader of the Carleton Place Christmas Bird Count, enthusiastically guided the group through the evening culminating in a talk by Dr. Jayne Yack. Jayne provided a fascinating talk on the secret world of insect communications with a focus on butterflies and caterpillars, many of them native to eastern Ontario. Jayne played recordings of sounds caterpillars make and demonstrated that some butterflies can actually hear sounds made by birds, insects and even people. It was a very successful and enjoyable evening, and everyone is reminded to put May 15, 2015 on their calendars for next years’ gathering. This summer, MVFN will be running its regular canoe/

kayak program and annual summer walks, and the club’s monthly natural history lectures will resume with a new series in September. Please see our new website, www.mvfn.ca, for details of these upcoming activities and for membership information. The new site took roughly one year and hundreds of hours to define, design and have implemented by MVFN’s web team along with Chris Bruce, a local naturalist and web designer. The new site makes it much easier to see what activities MVFN is involved in and to find information in a user friendly manner. Submitted by the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists.

Host families needed for students

Community – In addition to the two groups of Japanese teens heading to the area August 2014, Muskoka Language International is pleased to have this year 10month (school-term) placements arriving September 2014. The first group consists of 14year-old girls from Japan’s Denenchofu School. Their main goal is to immerse themselves in Canadian family life and practice their English. The group is due to arrive on July 29 and will stay until Aug. 11. The second group is a mix of 17 and 18-year-old boys and girls from Ritsumeikan Uji School, in Japan. They will spend their weekdays taking English as a Second Language program at Carleton Place High School and spend time with their host families on evenings and weekends. Local teachers will instruct the students while they are at school. This group will arrive

Aug. 15 and leave Aug. 30. The third group is arriving Sept. 1. These students attend school throughout the Upper Canada District School board and home stays are required from September 2014 to June 30, 2015. That’s where area families come in. While the younger group (Denenchofu School) will be with their host families throughout the day, older students (Ritsumeikan Uji) spend much of their time at school in Carleton Place. They are at school during the day so it’s a little less intense for families. The school year students will immerse themselves in our culture attending local high schools. No matter which age group a family decides to host, the experience is well worth it, In order to qualify to host, families must be able to provide the student with his or her own room and anyone over the age of

19 must pass a vulnerable sector background check. Organizers also hope to match students with his or her ideal family, which means the more family members, the better, especially if there are teens around the same age, Buses are provided for the older students to and from Carleton Place High School daily with buses from Perth, Almonte and Smiths Falls. Students residing in Carleton Place might require a drive to or from school, or they can walk if they are close enough to the school. The students who are attending school for the school year will either be bused or if close enough, may walk to school. All host families are compensated. Anyone looking for more information can call JoAnn Campbell or Katrina Hodge at 613-264-8843/613-366-5512, or email jcampbell@mliesl.com or khodge@mliesl.com.

The Canadian Co-operative Woolgrowers, located at 142 Franktown Road, grades and markets close to three million pounds of raw wool each year. To mark the town’s woolly past, the BIA and the Woolgrowers will come together on Saturday, June 21 to host the Lambs Down Park Festival. The BIA and the Wool Growers are hoping to bring awareness to the public about the great heritage attraction we have in Carleton Place. The festival will run from 10am until 3pm on the Wool Growers property. With the festival focusing on our woolly past, there will be all kinds of activities that will help build the fibre of participants including hands-on demonstrations of sheep herding involving working sheep dogs, sheep shearing and the spinning of wool. There will also be tours of the Woolgrowers facilities. Jack Denovan will be the Master of Ceremonies, providing music and entertainment all day. There will be local fresh produce, jams, lamb, baked goods, painting, sculptures, jewellery and so much more! For the young and the young at heart there will be a petting zoo and pony rides, balloon art, face painting and interactive gymnastics activity. You can relax at a picnic table, enjoying a bite to eat, having a drink and taking in great local entertainment. Two fundraising walks and BBQ in support of LAWS and People First. With the Woolgrowers housed in what was originally the round house and machine shops for the Canadian Pacific Railway, there will be a great display set up on Carleton Place’s railway past. The Lambs Down Park Festival was created by the BIA with the goal of bringing together friends and family, so that we can enjoy and learn about the heritage of the community. The BIA has had great success with family events and is inviting everyone to come out and enjoy the displays, lunch and entertainment. Further details on the festival can be obtained by contacting the BIA at 613-257-8049 or by e-mail at cmcormond@carletonplace.ca.

Lifestyle – The Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists (MVFN) held their annual general meeting (AGM) at the Almonte Civitan Community Hall on May 15 followed by their Spring Gathering event which had record-setting attendance. The AGM was conducted by Ken Allison, president of MVFN, with attendance by the board and club members. Ken provided the membership with an overview of the organizations activities and finances over the last year. This is the club’s 26th year as an organization and throughout this time it has been very active promoting the understanding and awareness of the natural world in our community, with its popular natural history lectures series, canoe, hiking and birding outings, environmental programs for children and youth, and strong support for local conservation issues. The treasurer, Robert McCook, presented the finances which show a wellmanaged club which can continue to be very active. Ken introduced each of the board members for the coming year, and of special note is that Cliff Bennett, one of the founding members, will once again be president. The 2014/15 board members can found on MVFN’s new website (www.MVFN.ca) under the ABOUT MVFN menu. The AGM was followed by the Spring Gathering event which started with a reception, where old friends and acquaintances shared drinks and chatted; many visited the Young Naturalists exhibit and purchased raffle tickets in support of the MVFN bursary fund, which supports young people going into the environment education field. Presentation of the 2014 MVFN Champion for Nature also took place. Botanist David White was presented with the award for his work in establishing a Lanark Flora which is available online for public use and furthers plant and habitat conservation in our region. The Almonte Civitan Club did an excellent job of providing top notch service and a very tasty meal. A special thanks to all the volunteers, especially Cliff Bennett, who organized the team and co-ordinated the event. The master of ceremonies, Iain Wilkes, MVFN’s publicity chair and well-


Find out why The Butler Did It at Studio Theatre this July Arts – It might seem unfair to assume that the poor butler is always the culprit in the ‘30sstyle murder mysteries we love so much. But in the play-within-a-play comedy, The Butler Did It, premiering soon at the Studio Theatre, the butler is the obvious suspect. Why? Because all the characters have the same last name – Butler! Described as the off-Broadway equivalent of Deathtrap, The Butler Did It, written by Walter Marks and Peter Marks, is a diabolically clever comedy thriller that mixes murder and mayhem, laughter and chills in the glittering world of the theatre. The scene is set where Anthony J. Lefcourt, writer and director, is rehearsing his newest work, a classic “whodunit” (in which, as mentioned, all the characters either play a butler or are named Butler) hoping to regain his former glory as a playwright. Desperately eager to spur his cast on to great performances, he “stages” the murder of one of the actresses, after which the plot begins to twist and turn with such dazzling ingenuity – and hilarity – that soon actors and audience alike have lost track of what is real and what is make-believe. Finally, a surprise ending sets matters straight in a most bizarre and ironic way. It’s a “genuinely amusing burlesque of those good old ‘30s movie thrillers in which the killer is unmasked in the final moments” (NY Daily News) and just the sort of light-hearted fare that makes for great summer entertainment. The Butler Did It is directed by theatre veteran Patricia Parry (who helmed last De-

cember’s successful The Wonderful Story of Mother Goose) and stars Paul Roach as the director, Anthony J. Lefcourt; Norman MacDonnell as Mr. Butler (and Robert Lattimore); Julie Heney as Mrs. Butler (and Angela Simpson); Satinka Schilling as Vickie Butler (and Claudia Barnes); Charles Henderson as Aldo, the Butler, (and Michael Severino); and Garry Welch as Detective Mumford (and Sam Farber). The show premieres Thursday, July 3 and continues July 4, 5, 11 and 12 at 8 p.m., and July 6 and 13 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $22 (cash; exact change if possible) at The Book Nook (60 Gore Street E.), and at Tickets Please (39 Foster Street), 613-485-6434, www.ticketsplease.ca, which accepts credit card and phone orders (a convenience fee applies). Tickets at the door are $24, and students with ID pay just $10 at the door on show night. The laughs continue in August with the Studio Theatre’s second great summer show, Oscar Wilde’s classic social satire, An Ideal Husband, premiering Aug. 14 for eight performances. And when you purchase tickets for both The Butler Did It and An Ideal Husband you’ll pay just $40 for both shows. For details, dates and show times be sure to visit studiotheatreperth.com. Remember, Perth’s Studio Theatre is air conditioned and fully accessible, thanks to our brand new elevator. Enjoy a show (or two!) at the beautifully renovated Studio Theatre, and see how good community theatre can be! Submitted by the Studio Theatre.

Roam the countryside at Burnstown Heritage House & Garden Tour June 28 Community – Are you interested in history or homes or gardens? Do you want to spend an interesting afternoon roaming the countryside? Then do not miss the second Burnstown Heritage House & Garden Tour on Saturday, June 28 from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. There are seven locations in and around Burnstown to visit: four gardens, three heritage homes, school, church, radio station, and labyrinth. Included in the $25 price is a strawberry social at the Burnstown United Church. Your passport provides a map and a short description of each location. The order of viewing is up to you – start and finish anywhere along the route. There are two locations in Burnstown, besides the church. One is the 1889 one-room school house. Today it is the Neat, with its café and roast house. Lately, it has become known for its unique concert venue. There is even a concert scheduled for the evening of the tour (June 28) at 8 p.m. if you wish to purchase tickets (www.neatfood. com). The tour includes the garden and perhaps you will also see some freetrade coffee being roasted. The second location is one of the village’s oldest buildings. It was built around 1850 as the home of businessman, George Rochester. He was the owner of the Rochester Mill and other businesses in Burnstown. The building was later used as a cheese factory before reverting to a home. Today it is the location of Prime Valley Realty and a gift shop, Rustic Remnants. The tour includes the basement to show the timbers and floorboards. While there, listen to tales of rescues and drownings on the Madawaska. Heading towards White Lake, are the gardens of Mary and Peter Stanton. These gardens were planted in

The vision was to use the salvaged perennials and incorporate new and unusual plants. Goals were four-season interest, visual impact and an established look in year three. The rear garden layout is reminiscent of a formal French country courtyard. The front garden is more informal and relaxed. Back by popular demand is the nearby farm of Joan & Ross Headrick. You can visit a log cabin from the early 1800s, lovingly furnished to that time period. Check out the handmade quilt and interesting gadgets from pioneer times.

With sandy, dry soil, it was originally designed in a hot, dry, Mediterranean style. Now the garden is transitioning into a partial shade garden, featuring hostas, daylilies and perennials. There is also a small goldfish pond. While there, enjoy the owners’ artistic works. Valerie’s botanical paintings are often of the plants in the garden. John’s work is mainly architectural, but he also enjoys painting small acrylics of their garden. Valley Heritage Radio Station is also included in the tour.

The station uses turntables and tape decks, as well as modern equipment. The actual building was once the Jack Russell Drive-In Theatre. There may be a live band on

Steve Clark says Kemptville College remains top priority By JEFF MACKEY

jeff.mackey@metroland.com

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; In last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s election LeedsGrenville MPP Steve Clark received a renewed mandate to lead Leeds-Grenville, even if his party failed to win the premiership and lost seats at Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Park. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We lost nine seats, so I lost a number of my friends who I sat with in caucus,â&#x20AC;? said Clark, who was first elected in 2010. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These were really good people who were committed to their local communities.â&#x20AC;? Entering this new four-year term in opposition, Clark said that his priorities

when it comes to North Grenville have changed little. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that Kemptville College and all the uncertainty around the facility is a priority for me in the immediate portion of the term,â&#x20AC;? said Clark. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad the (Kemptville College) Task Force is meeting on a weekly basis,â&#x20AC;? said Clark. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I support them fully and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m committed to working with them on their recommendations and to continue to lobby the government to have their sustainability plan approved.â&#x20AC;? Clark even seemed to extend a hand to the new majority government so they could find a solution to the problem together.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The encouraging thing that I saw in the election was that every party spoke in favour of keeping the college and supporting the good work the task force is engaged in and I am hoping that goodwill will spill over into the Wynne government,â&#x20AC;? said Clark. Ever since it was slated to close by the University of Guelph, the collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s status has been unclear. Interested parties from both the private and public sector have reportedly looked at the facilities, but the provincial election put any major developments for the file on hold. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope that the ministry of training, colleges and universities will take a more active roll and stop paying lip ser-

vice to the local community like I saw prior to the election,â&#x20AC;? said Clark. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a huge priority for us to have the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s support for the sustainability of the campus.â&#x20AC;? Meanwhile the legislature is slated to reconvene in early July to debate the Liberal budget and the Progressive Conservatives still need to find themselves a new leader. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would expect there will be a number of people from caucus and perhaps from other areas that would be interested in the party,â&#x20AC;? said Clark of the inevitable leadership race for the PCs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It gives us an opportunity for a bit of renewal, an opportunity to listen to peo-

ple and get feedback on what positions to take now that we have four years in opposition to plan out other policies.â&#x20AC;? Regardless of the partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next leader, Clark re-pledged his support for North Grenville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to continue to be a vocal advocate for my constituents,â&#x20AC;? said Clark, who mentioned he had constituency hours at the North Grenville Municipal Centre every Wednesday morning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know that there are a number of folks that are very concerned about the budget and concerned about the direction the government has taken the province in terms of electricity.â&#x20AC;?

Crime prevention is a priority From front page

Housing that is too expensive, insufficient or substandard; isolation both geographic and social; access to social and human services exacerbated by unfamiliarity and stigma. “The idea now is to try to come up with actions the group as a whole can do to improve say housing as an example,” said Sherritt. An important part of the entire

proposed process is both coming up with the necessary data to analyze the issues and to measure the outcomes. “We talked about data and where to get it and several players said 'we have data on that, we can provide it’,” said Sherritt. Overall the entire meeting went well and achieved the goals its organizers had hoped for, in spite of the fact that a few of the players who had attended the first

meeting were unable to get to the second one. "We progressed from Hugh's presentation to starting to do work," said Sherritt, "We wanted people to start taking ownership and that happened - hands down." The next meeting of the Safety and Wellness council will be on July 11 at the North Grenville Municipal Centre.

Roundabout clinic ready to roll By JEFF MACKEY

jeff.mackey@metroland.com

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; With all the roundabouts in Kemptville these days you might think you were in London, England and not the Rideau Valley. The circular traffic systems are already in place at three intersections on County Road 43 in Kemptville and once the funding is in place there are more to come. But not everyone is comfortable with roundabouts, especially if they have been dealing with only traffic lights and four-way stops for years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hear it all the time,â&#x20AC;? said Scott Hutchinson, owner and driving instructor with Safe-Way Driving School. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hate roundabouts, I hate roundabouts, people get confused and frustrated by them.â&#x20AC;? With this in mind Hutchinson, along with fellow driving instructor Tara Newton, decided to host a free Roundabout Clinic on June 27 from 1-3 p.m. at the Service Centre Room at the Canadian Tire in Kemptville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think this will be good for everybody,â&#x20AC;? said Hutchinson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will go through roundabouts and how exactly to handle them.â&#x20AC;? Hutchinson even offered a couple of tips for

drivers in the meantime. â&#x20AC;&#x153;First and foremost always use your eyes, scan the circle as you approach and remember that everyone outside the roundabout has a yield sign,â&#x20AC;? said Hutchinson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Keep in mind that not everyone knows or obeys the rules so always keep a look-out for the other guy.â&#x20AC;? Always remember to let other drivers know what you are doing, as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Signaling is important,â&#x20AC;? he continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A left signal lets people know you are going around the circle, a right signal says youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re leaving.â&#x20AC;? Despite the roundabouts reputation among some detractors, of being difficult and prone to collisions, their continued and growing use in Kemptville and around the world is evidence of their efficiency. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is more effective than traffic lights and four-way stop for flow of traffic,â&#x20AC;? said Hutchinson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;MythBusters (television show) actually did a thing on this recently where they demonstrated you can get a lot more cars through a roundabout than a four-way stop.â&#x20AC;?

Some changes to the names of North Grenville roads were discussed at the committee of the whole meeting on June 16. The biggest change will occur along River Road from Burritts Rapids towards Merrickville. In addition to there already being multiple River Roads in the region, this road switches between County Road 23 and River Road, which can be challenging for emergency responders and others. The committee was presented with three plans to simplify the road system but no final decision was made. Also, within the town of Kemptville, Alma Street East and West will be connected thanks to a development that is planned. The new street will be known simply as Alma Street.

Ribfest beach volleyball serves up a success By ANGUS MACDONALD

Community - The St. Michael Mustangs partnered up with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Leeds and Grenville over this past Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day weekend to host the second annual Kemptville Ribfest Beach Volleyball fundraising tournament. The day turned out to be a great success as 16 teams and more than 100 athletes gathered to battle it out for beach volleyball supremacy in Kemptville. The weather cooperated for most of the day and the light shower of rain mid afternoon couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t dampen the spirits of the athletes involved. In the recreational division the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rib Crackersâ&#x20AC;? captained by Kathy Tang held off the team called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Young Gunsâ&#x20AC;? to capture the division title and walked away with six Ottawa Senators tickets for their efforts. The Competitive division final was a hard fought battle but the team from St. Michael called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Block Partyâ&#x20AC;? captained by Cole Brookson and Liam Glenn defeated Scott Birchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s squad and walked away with six Ottawa Senators tickets and $250 in prize money. This event was made possible by the community effort last spring from the following companies: D&C Masonry, Ray Finley sand and gravel, Schouten construction, Tallman Truck Centre, Lafarge, Tackaberry, and Cruickshank who donated their time and sand to help create the beach volleyball courts at St.

Kemptville Ribfest a meaty success By JEFF MACKEY jeff.mackey@metroland.com

Community –If you caught a whiff of barbecue sauce in the air around Kemptville this past weekend you weren’t alone. The Kemptville Ribfest, which is now in its fourth year, ran from Friday to Sunday at the Municipal Centre. The festival brought out rib vendors from all over, including Ribs Royale, Kentucky Smokehouse, Jack the Ribber and Fire Island Barbeque. “We had a great weekend,” said Jane Fullarton, executive director of Big Brothers Big Sisters Leeds-Grenville, who helped organize the event. “The community came out and we all had a lot of fun.” Proceeds from the event went to Big Brothers Big Sisters Leeds-Grenville to help it with its many programs including the traditional one-on-one match program, the in-school mentoring pro-

gram, the after-school program, various outings for kids and sports nights. The Big Brothers Big Sisters program serves some 178 children in North Grenville alone and some 823 youngsters across Leeds & Grenville each year. But ribs weren’t the only things on the menu this weekend; the event also featured plenty of events for young and old. For the children there was a bouncy castle, pony rides and live entertainment. While for adults there were a variety of concerts including acts like Ambush, SwitchGear and Spare Parts. There was also the Kemptville Cruise Night and a rib eating competition. The rib eating contest saw a team comprised of North Grenville council members, including mayor David Gordon, take on a team of North Grenville firefighters and, believe it or not, the council members won for the second

year in a row. Mayor Gordon says next his team will be challenging the Brockville council at its upcoming ribfest. “I think it is a great community event and we are delighted with the community’s support,” said Fullarton about North Grenville’s support of the event. In fact, Ribfest is fast becoming a staple item on Kemptville’s summer calendar. “That is the plan,” said Fullarton. “We also run the Brockville Ribfest, we are in our 14th year on that one. This one is just in its fourth year but we think year number five will be bigger and better than ever.” Fullarton said that, while it is hard to gauge how many people attended the event, it was a roaring success nonetheless. “I couldn’t guesstimate but I would say that there were more people this year than last,” she said.

A soggy Day of Caring for Procter & Gamble in Leeds & Grenville Rain or shine community service By ANDREA CARTIER

News - The wet weather didn’t dampen the spirits of Brockville Procter & Gamble employees who were out in communities in Leeds & Grenville taking part in the company’s biennial Day of Caring. June 11 saw approximately 550 P&G employees, working in groups of five to 40, out at various locations working to better the lives of their neighbours. Teams worked on 42 projects in the area in such places as Cardinal, Spencerville, North Augusta, Lansdowne, Brockville, Prescott, Johnstown and Athens. One such team was at Holy Cross Catholic School in Kemptville,

greening the school yard and renewing and weeding flowerbeds. Cathy Noel, team coordinator, nominated Holy Cross as a locale for this year’s Day of Caring. “It is to show appreciation,” stated Ms. Noel. “My three children attended Holy Cross and now my granddaughter goes to the school. I wanted to give something back.” Cathy Empey, principal of Holy Cross School, expressed the school’s appreciation. “Despite the torrential rain, the employees put in a full day of work and we have a great start on Phase Two of our yard improvement planning for the Grade One and Two area. We would like to thank Procter and Gamble for this wonderful opportunity and demonstrating to our students the importance of giving to others in a community. Helping and caring for others in the school and wider community are some of the values we try to instill in our students.” For two decades caring employees from P & G have been volunteering their time to make a difference in Leeds and Grenville.

These P&G employees braved the wet weather to take part in their company’s Day of Caring. They dedicated their day to helping make Holy Cross Catholic School in Kemptville a greener place.

News - Cancer has reluctantly become an everyday topic over the last half century. These days breast cancer, for example, like so many other forms of cancer is not a death sentence like it used to be. Talking about it has gone from being a taboo subject to one of weekend fundraisers and community walks and runs. Information and awareness has made all of the difference to those challenged by cancer and to those trying to raise funding to cure it. Not all cancers get enough of the limelight. Prostate cancer, long nicknamed the silent killer, will visit one in seven men. Survival rates, however encouraging, can be misleading. Usually prostate cancer is diagnosed in men who are older. Unfortunately before these same men can become a prostate cancer statistic they are taken by lung cancer or heart disease. Nine-nine per cent who contract the most common types of prostate cancer will survive more than five years after their diagnosis. When prostate cancer stays just in the prostate or in tissue nearby the survival rate is close to 100 per cent. Recent research indicates that nine out of 10 men who have prostate cancer will have a localized version. Almost none of these men will die from their cancer over the next five years from their diagnosis. Once prostate cancer has spread beyond the prostate, survival rates fall. For men with distant spread (metastasis) of prostate cancer, about one-third will survive for five years after

diagnosis. Many men with prostate cancer actually will live much longer than five years after diagnosis. According to the American Cancer Society the relative 10â&#x20AC;&#x201C;year survival rate is 91 per cent and the 15-year survival rate is 76 per cent. Hallville resident Ted Ceelen is one prostate cancer survivor who feels the more information a man has about prostate cancer the better. He is setting up a prostate cancer group along the lines of an informal coffee club-type format. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some people have gone through what I have gone through and have asked me questions about my own particular journey,â&#x20AC;? he said. Ceelen has a meeting planned for June 23 at the Mountain Hall. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. There are other cancer support groups in Ottawa but nothing for men with prostate cancer in rural areas of the province. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are lots of guys here who are not comfortable going to Ottawa,â&#x20AC;? said Ceelen. Last month there was a small meeting in Mountain where seven men attended. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a real need for more awareness. When you talk to your doctor, you do not learn everything,â&#x20AC;? he said. When you are first told about your cancer you do not hear anything else that comes in the conversation. The word cancer overshadows any more information your doctor may have for you. Ceelen would like prostate cancer to enjoy the same kind of positive press that breast cancer now gets. These days breast cancer is not considered a death sentence like it used to be.

Liberals get last minute reprieve

E

ditorial – Just as with the recentlywrapped up NBA championships and the NHL Stanley Cup race, in politics too, a win is a win. The final Ontario provincial election results saw the Liberals win a surprising majority government with 58 seats, with 28 for the Progressive Conservatives, and 21 for the New Democratic Party. With 54 seats needed to form a majority government, the Liberals have only a four-seat majority. Not precarious, but not quite the landslide they had in 2003, or the comfortable majority of 2007. All it is, is an improvement of five seats from 2011. What has everyone crowing is that the Liberals defied everyone’s expectations – including their own. In the days leading up to the election, even the Grits were playing down expectations of anything better than another minority. What likely happened here is that enough New Democrats were spooked by the prospect of Premier Tim Hudak that they raced to the Liberal camp. Just like Paul Martin did in 2004, the fear tactics may not make for history-book making, or statesman-like politics, but they can win elections. While personally affable, one-on-one, Tim Hudak just did not connect with voters, the very same voters who recognized the need for fiscal sanity – but also feared a return to the meanspirited Common Sense Revolution days, which appear to have been repudiated now, with much of the same Mike Harris crowd from 1995 and 1999 having run this latest campaign into the ground. Looking about locally, as the party once billed as the Big Blue Machine licks its wounds, we see two potential leadership contenders from this

L

area. One is long-time Nepean-Carleton MPP Lisa MacLeod – though fiercely partisan, she is also unambiguous and certainly can connect with voters, for good or ill. It would be interesting to have all three provincial political parties led by women. But apart from that bit of trivia, MacLeod could be crucial in helping drive inroads in suburban areas of this province – like Toronto’s 905 commuter belt, or suburban Ottawa. As Mike Harris can attest to, these are key to winning a majority government for the PCs. Closer to our area, in an interview with The Kemptville Advance, LeedsGrenville MPP Steve Clark refused to be drawn in on what he thought a new leader would look like. If he won’t say it, we will: Clark would be a very strong candidate to replace Hudak. As the former mayor of Brockville, he is able to represent both urban and rural interests. He also ‘gets it’ when it comes to the problems facing municipalities, having sat in the hot seat himself. A fiscal conservative, having been elected in 2010, seven years after the Harris-Eves years, like MacLeod, he does not carry the baggage of those governments. Knowing the value of a balanced budget, Clark also does not appear to be a graduate of the ‘slashand-burn’ school of economics. We wish Wynne all the best in trying to right the ship. With a majority, she should be able to get done what needs to get done, without any of the minority government excuses. We are also glad that, hopefully, even as the OPP goes about their work, that this renewed mandate will finally put us closer to the end of the gas plant saga and will have taught the Liberals a lesson.

The ever-shifting farm population changes again

ifestyle - Over the last month, every time I opened the spare door to the room that housed the new cat family, the mama looked at me as if to say, “WHEN. When are you taking these kittens that bite my tail with their sharp little kitten teeth and nurse for hours every day?” I found homes for the three kittens born to the calico cat that was dropped off at our farm by her previous owner. I waited ‘til they were eight weeks old and comfortable with solid food (climbing into the food bowl and growling as they ate). I let her sniff and lick each one on the head as I put them in the carrier to leave. I spoke to them and they seemed to understand. But now that they are gone, she is pacing back and forth in the basement, crying. She is calling for them, looking for them, and complaining. She doesn’t know what she wants.

I think the Farmer is afraid he will be bored without 100 sheep to shear by hand this year. And so he bought an old farmhouse to renovate. Never a dull moment, here on the farm.

Show and Shine a hit in Kemptville By JOSEPH MORIN joe.morin@metroland.com

The Hwy 43 car Club was blessed with great weather for its fifth annual Show and Shine car show on Father’s Day June 15. An estimated 3,000 people flocked to Riverside Park in Kemptville to enjoy a look at a fantastic antique car collection from the turn of the century to 2014. On top of that there was great food, entertainment and the car club’s signature event, the burnout competition. Rod Rafter, the president of the club was happy with this year’s show, in fact he said the event is ready to start growing. “We will continue to grow,” he said. This year there was live music courtesy of the

Cadillac Rumble. The live music was a hit with visitors. “It all just adds to it,” said Rafter. “The only complaint we had was that people wanted more of what we had,” he said. The Highway 43 Car Club is the largest antique car club in Ontario. Its Father’s Day show has become a North Grenville tradition. Despite having to compete with the Big Brothers Big Sisters Ribfest at the Municipal Centre, the car show was a success. Forty–five volunteers helped to make it happen. The price of admission was an optional food donation that is destined for the Salvation Army food bank. By the end of the day Susie McIntosh from Total Move Management who

has been looking after the food donation for the past few years had two truck loads of food donations for the Salvation Army.

“The only complaint we had was that people wanted more of what we had.” ROD RAFTER, PRESIDENT HIGHWAY 43 CAR CLUB

The show cannot take place without the volunteers and the sponsorships the club receives. “I want to thank all of our sponsors,” said Rafter. The winner of the burnout was Al Kinch of Smiths Falls.

It may be hard to see him but Al Kinch of Smiths Falls won the burnout competition during the Highway 43 Car Club’s Show and Shine car show on Sunday. He was driving his 1981 cutlass.

A little this, a little that I promised to keep you updated on our ducks. We lost LWD and the other hen Beau to a fox. Enough is enough. Karine, Hemke and I managed to get the two remaining ducks Desi and Peep secure in my office. They are now home safe in our duck enclosure. Not the life I want for the ducks but it’s better then the alternative. LWD’s egg is in the incubator. If that duckling hatches out it will be the most loved and protected duck since Donald Duck. In other news, I rang off the sales for April and May. The good news is that we have many more customers. The bad news is that they are spending less. The cash register is very good at keeping track of what’s selling and what is not. Last winter I did an article about demographics. The cash register proved me right. Everyone wants instant bling. Hanging baskets or pre-planted containers. Very few people are willing to get their hands dirty and actually garden. I would guess that 80% of our gardening customers are over 50 years old. The rest are bling buyers. A few weeks ago I created a Facebook page for the nursery. One thing that Facebook does extremely well is tracking. It tells me where the hits or likes are coming from and the age and the gender of those visiting the page. It doesn’t give me their profiles. Thank goodness, that would just be scary. A third of the hits are from women aged

55 to 64. Males from 18 to 24 zero. It is not just us. I have talked to other growers and our suppliers. The only things selling are RTG ( ready to go). In a time when we are all so concerned about where our food is coming from and what has been sprayed on it, precious few are willing to grow their own. I don’t get it.

Tonight I took a few cuttings from our elderberry for Karine. She is my daughter’s age and wants to grow things. It is so encouraging. Technology has given us instant access to so much information. Things I have forgotten or never knew. It is amazing. But. With all this instant connectivity we are becoming more isolated. We talk in bits and bytes but not face to face. We connect but we do not have a conversation. We “like” and sometimes leave a comment but it is not a dialogue. It may be why I tend to ramble on with customers at the nursery. I do like to talk.

Manning the President’s Raffle table at this year’s HeyDay, held at the North Grenville Curling Club, were Jolene Stover, Cathi Finley and Jane Wolfe.

By LIS ANGUS

News - Crowds filled the North Grenville Curling Club arena last Friday evening and Saturday morning, taking advantage of the large selection and low prices at HeyDay. This was HeyDay’s 54th year. Each June since 1961, the Kemptville District Hospital Auxiliary has organized a gigantic yard sale to raise funds for hospital equipment. The items for sale always fill the entire Curling Club arena, overflowing to the yard outside. Sales figures aren’t yet finalized, but the result was a near-record, well worth the effort that everyone put in to make this event happen. Shoppers came from miles around to snap up bargains in clothing, books, linens, china, jewelry, craft supplies, electrical appliances, furniture and sporting goods. Children and parents swarmed the toy section. At 1 p.m. on Saturday, winners of all the draws and raffles were announced. The big winner was Jillian Johnston of Iroquois, who won $2,888.35 on the 50-50 draw. Other raffle winners were John Capes, Vanessa Hoels, Dorothy Hudson, Joyce Lavergne, Greg Leonard, Gord Martin, Rita McFary, Shirley McIntyre, Bev Middlemiss, Chrissy Mopar, Avalon Pinhey, Terry’s, and Irene Weedmark. Prizes included donations from Canadian Tire, Pioneer Nursery, Rooney Feeds and Rideau Woodland Ramble. Dozens of volunteers participated in the setup and operation of HeyDay, together contributing over 2000 hours to the event. Members of the Lions, Rotary, and Knights of Columbus clubs helped with set-up and other tasks. The items sold at HeyDay were contributed by North Grenville residents, who did their best to donate only usable items in good repair, and to respect the list of items that could not be donated. In addition to thanking the volunteers, donors and shoppers, the KDH Auxiliary would like to thank the many businesses and groups that contributed to Hey Day’s success this year. This includes too many to list here— including some 200 who posted the HeyDay flyer to advertise the event—

but several deserve special mention. The North Grenville Curling Club rented their facilities to the Auxiliary for the event, and provided gracious and unfailing support during the several days that Hey Day occupied their premises. Al Brown of Al’s Used Furniture Outlet and Auction Service set up a sound system and broadcast live announcements and commentary on both Friday evening and Saturday morning. The Kemptville Players ran the children’s centre (toys, games and books), and the Kemptville Horticultural Society organized and ran the plant section. Kemptville Truck Centre and Rona (formerly Kemptville Building Centre) generously contributed trucks and drivers to pick up large items. Total Move Management were of great assistance with cleanup and transporting unsold items. Canteen supplies were donated by Albert’s Meat Shop, Beking Poultry Farm, Giant Tiger, Laughlin’s General Store (Hallville) and Lanthier Bakery. B&H Foodliner contributed food items for the canteen and Betsy Boxes, as well as lending grocery carts, which were of great help in transporting goods during the sorting and set-up process. Dumpsters were provided by “Fast Eddie” Auto Recycling & Container Service, a much appreciated service. The Salvation Army received unsold clothing, linens and craft items at the end of HeyDay. Unsold books went to organizers of the October Book Fair, which will jointly benefit North Grenville Community Living and the Kemptville Youth Centre. Selected unsold furniture and other items were donated to Lazarus House. The KDH Auxiliary is already looking ahead to 2015. Next year’s Hey Day, on the second weekend in June, will be the fifty-fifth year this special event takes place. With co-operation from our North Grenville and area neighbors, the Auxiliary hopes to make it the most successful Hey Day yet. Jane Wolfe, this year’s HeyDay coordinator, says “I am pleased to live in such a generous community. See you next year!”

St. Michael sends strong team to LGESAA track and field championships Sports - On Monday June 2, St. Michael CHS Grade 7 and 8 students participated in the LGESAA championship for Track and Field. The team of 52 traveled to Brockville to compete in a series of events which led them to an overall second place finish. The athletes pushed through the sweltering heat, competing against 17 schools and setting both personal and record breaking finishes. Regional champions included Kylie King, Rachel Goldberg, Ryan Johnston, Connor Manderson and Steven Vichos. Rachel Goldberg had an outstanding meet, winning all three of her events as well as setting a new long jump record

of 4.68 meters in the senior girls long jump. This broke a 35-year-old record and led her to claim the top senior girl of the meet. Ryan Johnston had an exceptional meet as well, winning the long jump for senior boys with an impressive jump of 5.48 meters and also claiming the title of top senior boy of the overall. Connor Manderson and Kylie King both had an impressive day winning their shot put event for the junior boys and junior girls division. Despite the tough competition, Connor and Kylie showed determination and claimed first place in their event. Steven Vichos won two events. Most

notable was his 800 meter run which he finished in 2 minutes and 29 seconds, almost beating a 25-year-old record. He was named top junior boy of the meet. The St. Michael athletes showed true sportsmanship all day long to both their own teammates and to competing athletes. Their hard work, perseverance, determination and willingness to learn have brought the intermediate athletes much success this track season. The coaches are very proud of all track and field athletes. This season has been an outstanding year with many memorable moments for both athletes and coaches. Congratulations Mustangs!

REGIONAL NEWS From page 34

â&#x20AC;˘ Supervise children when they use products containing button batteries. â&#x20AC;˘ Do not allow children to play with button batteries or remove them from household products. â&#x20AC;˘ Seek immediate medical attention if you suspect your child has swallowed a battery. Do not let the child eat

or drink, and do not induce vomiting until medical attention is received. While button-type batteries have unique risks associated with them, all types of batteries can pose a health risk if not properly installed, used, stored or discarded. Parents and caregivers can learn more at our healthycanadians.gc.ca by searching for Battery Safety.

Health Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s participation in International Product Safety Week represents the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment to working globally on product safety issues. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also one of the trilateral initiatives identified at the North American Consumer Product Safety Summit hosted in Ottawa in September 2013, attended by Ambrose and her product safety counterparts from the United

IN MEMORIAM

GORDON, Rita R. – June 18, 2001 – In loving memory of a dear Mom, Mother-in-law, Nanny and Great Nanny. This month comes back with sad regret, It brings back a day we won’t forget. You fell asleep without saying goodbye, But our memories of you will never die. We miss you more than anyone knows, As each day passes our emptiness grows. The tears we shed will wipe away, But the ache in our hearts will always stay. No one knows the grief we bear, When our family meets and you’re not there. You left us suddenly, your thoughts unknown, But left us memories we’re proud to own. Please God, take a message, To our loved one in Heaven above, Tell her how much we miss her, And give her all our love. Luv You, Ron, Ruth, Terry and Sherry Paul and Janet Randy and Janice and families

IN MEMORIAM

JUBY – In precious memory of my darling husband Dale, who walked through Heaven’s Gate June 24th, 2012. A picture of you I carry in my heart, I close my eyes to see it When the world gets dark. A memory of you I carry in my soul, I wrap it close around me When the nights get cold. If you ask how I am, I’d say just fine, But the truth is If you could read my mind Not a day goes by that I don’t think of you, With aching heart and tears unseen, Wishing your absence was only a dream. Till we meet again, forever and always, xox Love Didee

OBITUARY

OBITUARY

HENDRY Winifred “Win” The family of Win Hendry (Baigent: nee Holmes), predeceased by her husbands Alexander (Sandy) Hendry and Harry Baigent, sadly announce her passing at the Jubilee Hospital in Victoria, BC, on December 21, 2013 in her 94th year. In 1954 she started her 31 year nursing career at the Rideau Regional Centre, retiring from the Smiths Falls Hospital in 1985, where she created many lasting friendships. After retirement, she moved to Victoria in 1997 and enjoyed her new home. Loved walking by the sea shore, greatly admired all the early show of flowers and delighted in the balmy weather of the west coast. She was a keen participant at her local community centre, enjoying her darts and crib games and maintaining an active social life. Over the years life presented her with many challenges, but she never lost her love of life and appreciation of all the positive things around her. Her favourite line everyday was “I always count my blessings”, and she always took the best of what each day offered her. She is survived by her sons Tony, Bernie, and Richard Baigent and daughter Leanne Kapostins (Hendry), 10 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at the St. Francis de Sales Church in Smiths Falls at 10:00 a.m. Saturday June 21, 2014. Cremation has taken place. Interment to follow in the St. Francis Cemetery. All are invited to share in a Celebration of Life at the Hanley Hall from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to your favourite charity.

STREET – In loving memory of our dear parents, Cecil who passed July 29, 1990 and Vivian who passed June 29, 2009. A silent thought, a secret tear, Keeps their memory ever dear, Time takes away the edge of grief, But memory turns back every leaf. Always lovingly remembered Leslie and Adele Bev and Sophia Judy And all your family

LINDSAY, Darryl – June 18, 2014 – In loving memory of our son. They say there is a reason, They say that time will heal, But neither time nor reason, Will change the way we feel. For no one knows the heartache, That lies behind our smiles, No one knows how many times, We have broken down and cried. We want to tell you something, So there isn’t any doubt, You are wonderful to think about, But so hard to do without. It has been ten years Always in our hearts Mom and Dad

MOLYNEAUX – In loving memory of my Mother Nina Molyneaux who departed this world on June 23, 2008 to be with the angels of heaven. Mother was a wonderful mix of warmth, strength, love and generosity. Her baking was legendary and she welcomed every person, be they stranger or friend into her home with an open heart, good food and lovely conversation. She was a beautiful woman who had a deep faith that guided her through her life, and provided inspiration to her family. Sincere, gentle, kind, words that were commonly known used to describe her. Mother always greeted you with a smile and warm hospitality. I urge all of us to dry our tears, suspend our sorrow and perhaps our hurt, just long enough to remember the sweet miracle of my mother. We are not here to mourn her loss, but to celebrate her life. God in heaven now rejoices with my mother, his new angel. She is deeply missed by her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, sister and friends. Until we meet again my Mother is deep within my heart. Your forever loving Son Mark Crawford Calgary, Alberta

This 1951 Prefect drove around the Mosport race track Lifestyle – Bill Marr of Moncton, New Brunswick, writes: “Hi, Bill. I enjoy your column and I think your readers will enjoy this story. “In May of 1961, my uncle and aunt, Jack and Mildred Chisholm, who resided in Willowdale (part of Toronto) decided to take a drive north of Bowmanville in their 1951 Prefect to enjoy a picnic lunch and have a look at the new race track facility known as Mosport (pronounced Moe-sport, not Moss-port). It so happened that paving had been completed just a few days previous, there were no workmen around, and Jack convinced the Security Commissionaire to let them take a drive around the course. “Can’t you picture the Prefect leaning through the turns at Mosport at 15 miles per hour! My aunt captured a couple of minutes of footage on an 8 mm camera from the passenger seat. What a ride!” The Prefect was a four-door sedan built in England by Ford from 1939 to 1953 and sold widely across Canada as one of the forerunners of the compact cars adopted by the Big Three in Detroit in 1960 with the Falcon from Ford, the Corvair from GM, and the Valiant from Chrysler (the other noteable forerunner was the VW Beetle). We lived in Toronto in 1951, when Jack and Mildred’s Prefect was new. My friends and I (I was nine at the time) thought the Prefect looked funny because it was skinnier than the standard 6-passenger North American car of that era. We jokingly said that

the Prefect must have been put into a vice at the factory and had its sides squeezed closer together. Ron Pickford was born in England in 1938 and moved with his family to the west end of Toronto in 1953. The family car for much of the 1950s was a Prefect, and Ron’s mother was photographed standing beside the car in a supermarket parking lot with a shopping cart filled with a week’s supply of groceries. When Ron showed me the photo, I asked him why it was taken. After all, how many people do you know who have their picture taken with a shopping cart? Ron told me the reason. When they lived in England, they had only a small ice box for a refrigerator and had to shop for groceries every day. The photo was for the benefit of the relatives still living in England. See what life is like in Canada! We have a big refrigerator and we can shop for the whole week in one day! I’m always looking for more stories. Email billtsherk@sympatico. ca or write Bill Sherk, 25 John St., P.O. Box 255, Leamington, Ont. N8H 3W2. Everyone whose story is published in this column will receive a free autographed copy of my latest book: “OLD CAR DETECTIVE FAVOUThis shows the 1951 Prefect that drove around Mosport.

Construction starts on new track and field facility North Grenville District High School plans for construction of new track

is we’re going to talk to the places that have tracks, and just get an idea of how they sort of do that. Because we want to make sure we do a good job of keeping that [the track] in good shape…There will be a way that the community can use that [the track],

but we’re going to use the resources that we have with other schools in the board to be able to come up with a good policy on how best to do that.” This seems to have brought a good response from the residents of Kemptville.

News – After many impatient months of waiting, North Grenville District High School, Kemptville, started construction of its new track on May 31 of this year. It will be an IAAF approved (International Association of Athletics Federation), asphalt, 8-lane track, including water jump. The infield will be a sodded football and soccer field. There will also be designated sections for long jump, triple jump, high jump, pole vault, shot put, discus, and javelin; a new basketball court will also be included. Bleacher pads are also being put down, but the actual bleachers will not be installed yet. The majority of the facility will be built on the north side of the building. “I think it’s [the new track facility] a very good idea,” says Bridgette Tym, a seventh grade student at North Grenville, “because we don’t have facilities for high jump and pole vault and all that stuff. I think it will also be a better track.” Madison Young, a Grade 6 student at neighbouring school South Branch, who will be attending North Grenville next year, says, “Yes, [the track is a good idea] because it will help people get more fit.” According to principal Steve Sharp, the project will cost more than $1 million. However, they are hoping they will be able to host regional OFSAA track meets – consequently bringing revenue to the community. “It’ll [the track] be able to hold regional OFSAA track and field meets, so that would mean all of eastern Ontario would be coming here. So we think it’s not only big for our school, but also for our community, because you know, people will be coming and eating lunch, all kinds of stuff, so the benefit to our community in terms of economics is really big as well,” says Sharp, in reference to their hopes for the new track. Although uncertain, NG is hoping that the track will be available for the community to use. When asked about this, Sharp replied, “Yes, the same way that our other facilities are available to the community . . . You need to be able to ask us…for permission to be able to use it. If it is just a situation where someone is coming to run laps in the evening or something like that, that’s a little different, and to be honest, one of the things we’re going to do

Kemptville Wildcats are set for an action-packed weekend as they host the third annual All-Star Shootout Tournament.

KDLL to host tournament Sports - KDLL is hosting the third annual AllStar Wildcat Shootout Tournament this week, June 16-22. Thirty-two teams will converge on Kemptville and area diamonds. Teams from as far away as Toronto, upper New York state, Montreal and others from Eastern Ontario will do battle over five days of fierce competition. All of the available baseball diamonds in North Grenville will be used as well as Winchester, with the diamonds at Riverside Park being the main base for the tournament. This tournament is available for all divisions from Minor (ages 9/10) to Senior (ages 15/16). In last year’s Shootout Tournament, the Kempt-

ville Wildcats Major team had a narrow loss in the division finals, losing to the East Nepean Eagles. The East Nepean Eagles went on to become the Canadian Champions later that season. More of that kind of talent is expected this weekend. The battle continues at Riverside, South Gower and Winchester ball diamonds, starting Wednesday June 16 with the finals on Sunday, June 22. KDLL volunteers will offer a full canteen and 50/50 draws on the weekend to help with league costs. Come show your support and enjoy some top quality ball games - GO WILDCATS!

KDLL COACH OF THE WEEK This week’s coach of the week is Dan Piche who has been involved with KDLL for the past four seasons and is currently the head coach of both the minor black team as well as the minor All Star team for the upcoming competitive season. Dan’s daughter, Anna, 12, plays in KDLL Peewee Girls Softball division and his son, Simon, 11, plays in the Minor division. “I’ve witnessed the incredible growth of baseball in Kemptville over the past four years. It’s been a wonderful experience to be part of, there’s nothing better than going to the park and seeing every diamond full with kids playing the game,” says Dan. Dan, his wife Susan, Anna and Simon have been part of the Kemptville community now for 13 years and this is where they now call home. Dan’s earliest baseball memories are playing the game at the t-ball level while growing up in Cornwall, where he continued to play throughout his youth and then as an adult. He truly fell in love with the game not only as a player, but also traveling with his family on many weekends to Olympic stadium to watch the Expos. In addition to coaching, Dan also helps KDLL as a volunteer, helping in events such as last years Minor Provincial Championship. This coming weekend, you will find the Piches at Riverside Park as site co-ordinators of the Wildcat Shootout tournament. In the winter, Dan can also be found help-

Historic theatrical walking tour opens June 25 in Perth Arts – Visitors and townfolk alike may be forgiven for thinking they have walked into a time warp starting June 25 as costumed characters from Perth’s past come to life five mornings a week this summer. Perth through the Ages, a historic, theatrical guided walking tour, is a youth training project organized by the Classic Theatre Festival and Matheson House Museum, running through Aug. 31, Wednesday to Sunday mornings at 11 a.m. This project features an original play, The Preacher and the Leading Lady, which was researched and developed by the troupe in tandem with director Laurel Smith and local historian Susan Code. It tells the story of the Reverend William Bell, an early Perth Presbyterian minister, and famed actress May Bell-Marks, both of whom mysteriously find themselves in 2014 Perth. As they journey through the town, they witness key events and characters that have formed part of the town’s storied 200 years while often sparring about their respective views on everything from the state of women’s attire to smoke-belching horse carts (or cars, as we know them today). Bell, played by local actor Kevin Kozo, and Bell-Marks, performed by Ottawa’s Jasmine Bowen (a veteran of that city’s Haunted Walk), are perfect foils whose comments on what they have seen historically and now will allow audiences to appreciate the importance of signature events in Perth history. With an equal mix of drama, history, and humour, the play’s cast also includes some additional up and coming talents that Perthites have likely seen on both high school and community stages, including Bobbie Cordick, Meaghan Brackenbury, Adam Reid and Madison Reid. The tour route will begin at Matheson House Museum (11 Gore Street East) at 11 a.m. sharp beginning June 25, and will follow down the streets of Perth to the Courier building (where viewers will watch the moment when women’s

Other scenes near the Crystal Palace will allow historic characters to remark upon the remarkable changes they have witnessed, and scenes both at the Legion and along Beckwith Street East will be touching reminders of the human cost of both world wars.

the last fatal duel in Canada was fought, makes an appearance. The tour finishes at St. James Anglican Church, site of many historic events and the new home for the Classic Theatre Festival. The Perth through the Ages project is the product of an intensive period of research facilitated by local historic animator Susan Code and collective creation and writing led by Laurel Smith, the Classic Theatre Festival’s artistic producer. Troupe members also had the privilege of interviewing residents of the Lanark Lodge long-term care home

to gain insights into the Perth of days past. “We have a terrific group of young people working with us on the project, and this is a chance for them to stretch their talents, learn new things, and share great stories with tourists and locals alike, a lot of whom marvel at the historic architecture of Perth but don’t always know the stories behind the gorgeous facades,” Smith says. “This is a great opportunity to not only share memorable stories, but also give everyone a strong sense of place and pride

in our community as it approaches its bicentennial.” Smith points to the strong partnership with Matheson House and Perth Tourism, and credits the Ontario Cultural Attractions Fund, the Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport’s Celebrate Ontario program, the Ontario Trillium Foundation, and Ontario’s Highlands Tourism Organization with significant support as well. The tour will wind up at St. James Anglican Church, whose Good Shepherd Hall is being transformed into a professional theatre space this summer as the festival celebrates its fifth anniversary with the Neil Simon comedy, Come Blow Your Horn (July 11 to Aug. 3) and the gripping mystery thriller, Dial M for Murder by Frederick Knott (Aug. 8 to 31). Visitors to the new space will note the historic overtones inside the building as well, which will features posters, costumes designs, and other artifacts from Canadian theatre history in the hallways and theatre lobby. This summer, the festival is also adding a Thursday matinee. With eight shows a week (Wednesday to Saturday at 8 p.m., with 2 p.m. matinees every Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday), the Festival offers audiences lots of flexibility in choosing their dates.

Car Counsellor offers tips to truck owner experiencing dash control failure Lifestyle – “Hello Brian, I have a 1998 Mazda B-4000 4x4 truck and I have a small issue with it that has stumped many a mechanic and auto-part store representative. The speedometer and odometer stop working after only a few kilometres but all other gauges in the instrument cluster continue to work. During winter they both work for a little longer, I assume because it takes the engine longer to warm up, and sometimes in the summer will not work at any time during the day. I have also noticed if it is extremely cold (-20 and lower) the instruments will work for a few kilometres, stop working, then if the truck is parked for some time and started, the instruments will work again but not as long as first thing in the morning. The speed sensor unit has been changed on the rear axle and this has not corrected or improved the situation and it’s still the same. I have spoken with Mazda and Ford reps and they cannot provide any insights to the exact cause. Finally, except for this issue the truck is in sound mechanical condition and has never had any mechanical or electrical faults. I was hoping you may have a light bulb moment and solve this minor issue for me.” Cheers, Troy This Mazda’s PCM (Power-train Control Module) receives vehicle speed information from the antilock brake system rear wheel speed sen-

sor. The raw signal from this sensor on the rear axle goes directly to the anti-lock brake module where the signal is corrected for tire diameter. Then the corrected signal is sent to the PCM, speed control, cluster, etc. If the sensor on the diff has been replaced with no change, the problem will be found in one of the following areas: 1) Signal harness from the diff sensor to the module. 2) Internal fault of the ABS or power-train control module. 3) Signal harness from the PCM to the cluster. 4) Internal fault of the cluster. 5) Poor grounds for any of the above. Based on the observation that more than the speedometer/odometer stops working in the cold, I suspect the problem is in the cluster or the wiring that feeds it. The cheapest way to try to fix this would be to obtain a used cluster from a salvage yard. The alternative is to take the

truck to a very experienced Mazda B4000 or Ford Ranger technician and be willing to pay for his or her time to check the wiring and modules. At labour rates of $100/hour or more, trying out a used cluster will very likely be much cheaper. “Hi Brian, I Googled parking lots for new unsold cars and was astonished by the millions of cars that have never been sold and are parked in mega lots to rot. Would these cars not be better off recycled? Maybe today’s new cars wouldn’t be so expensive if the manufacturers didn’t yearly make more cars than demand calls for. If everyone refused to buy a brand new car for one year I think maybe the manufacturers would get the hint. Your thoughts?” Debby Some of the information received on the Internet can be a bit of an exaggeration (hard to believe, I know) but as with many things on the web, sometimes there’s a bit of truth as

well. Prior to the bankruptcy and bailouts of two large Detroit-based automakers, it was a common practice for these companies to produce far more vehicles than their dealers were ordering. Then, at the end of a model year, deep discounts and incentives were applied to move these mountains of metal, often at very low profit margins. While I’m not entirely conversant with European or Asian production practices, I’m pretty safe in stating that everything produced for the North American market, does end up on the road eventually. After the North American bailouts, carmakers seem to have learned their lessons and are periodically shutting down assembly lines for short periods of time when inventories start to climb and get stagnant. But if you see them return to the end-of-model year deep discounts, you may be excused for believing they’re back to their old tricks. What the last recession proved is that if a major manufacturer doesn’t have some degree of flexibility built into their financial planning and production schedules, (especially when it comes to cutting back in low demand times) they are doomed to failure and I’m not a fan of bailing them out again. As for putting off purchasing a vehicle for a year, many consumers don’t have much choice, but when you consider how many of our tax dollars went into the bailouts, per-

haps we might be owed a new car from certain makers. Upcoming events On Saturday, June 21 the Ottawa Jaguar Club presents EUROCARS 2014 and Jaguar Show ‘n’ Shine at the Rockcliffe Flying Club.

Twitter and 5-1-1 added to AMBER Alert messages News – When an AMBER Alert is issued, timing is critical, and police need to get information out fast. The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is adding Twitter and the MTO 5-1-1 roads infoservice as new tools to get the details about a child abduction occurrence out

as quickly as possible to as wide an audience as possible. With the use of Twitter, an AMBER Alert will travel among thousands of cell phones and electronic devices within seconds. And with the capability for Twitter subscribers to not only receive

but to ‘retweet’ information, police know that an AMBER Alert announcement can be multiplied to thousands of people fast. Twitter will enhance the Ontario AMBER Alert Program by enabling public notifications to a growing

network of partner-agencies who spread the word whenever there is a report of an abducted child anywhere in Ontario who may be in danger. Earlier this year, the Ministry of Transportation announced they would also partner with the Program by making

it easier for the public to be informed quickly whenever an AMBER Alert is in effect. Now when motorists see an AMBER Alert on overhead highway signs, they can dial 5-1-1 for information regarding the alert in effect to obtain information on suspect vehicles.

SMITHS FALLS

RELAY FOR LIFE 2014 Relay for Life hits $50,000 mark in Smiths Falls By LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com

News – The numbers are down from last year, but that didn’t dampen the spirits of Amanda Gifford, fundraising coordinator for the Canadian Cancer Society, Lanark, Leeds and Grenville. “It was a fantastic night in Smiths Falls,” Gifford said Monday. “We got lucky in Smiths Falls because the rain held off, but our Brockville event was hit by a thunderstorm.” Despite the threat of rain in Smiths Falls, there were 22 teams who took part in the 12-hour, overnight Relay for Life, raising $50,020 this year. Thirtynine survivors were included in the initial lap around the track. There were also 522 luminaries lit in honour or in memory of loved ones, and 256 participants took turns walking for the 12hour period. Cancer Kicking Cousins was the top fundraising team this year, topping $8,427. They had a big boost from Precision Hair Design, who held a Streak for the Cure event. Brian Paquette, (Coach Brian from Zendragon), got the crowd started during an emotional opening ceremonies. He was there to lead the warm-up of participants before the relay, but he also inspired those present with his own reasons for taking part. “Last year, we were here for Zoe,” he said, of his young friend – a child, whose life ended from cancer just weeks after last year’s relay. Paquette then shared a story about a little boy who wanted to help save the starfish that were washed ashore after the tide dragged them in… much to the chagrin of the old man who told him he couldn’t make a difference to the thousand of starfish that had washed up on the shore. “The little boy picked up just one starfish and threw it back in the ocean and said to the old man, ‘I made a difference to that one.’” Paquette’s message was clear – we can’t always make big miracles happen, but we can make a thousand little miracles happen every day – each and every one of us, he said. “Make your day count.” Comparison Last year, 25 teams raised $71,000 in Smiths Falls; Almonte’s totals were down $25,000 this year, but still over $100,000. Brockville’s totals topped the region with $102,229. Gifford noted that they had fewer, but larger teams, as many joined together this year. Brockville reported having 11 less teams this year, with 28 participating. Just three years ago, the event was held at the Lombardy fairgrounds, as a milestone was hit in 2011 – the $3 million mark after 12 years running. This was attained after some $250,000 was raised by 65 teams in Lombardy alone. When asked if they’d move the relay back to Lombardy from Smiths Falls, Gifford was hesitant at first. “No,” she said. “There were a number of issues we had to tackle at Lom-

bardy that we don’t have here in Smiths Falls at the high school.” Fire is just one of those issues. “At the high school, we can’t have open burning – camp fires or barbecues – because it’s school policy. But after speaking about this with the team captains, they were fine with that. There were a number of people who didn’t like the blowing smoke from the open air burning.” Noise from generators was another concern. Camper trailers, which used the generators for power, were allowed in Lombardy, but not at the high school. The generators created another problem for participants, which was alleviated by the move. But even so, Gifford says there are a number of ways people can donate to the Canadian Cancer Society, and money is still coming in from their online

sponsorship page, which is open until the end of July. “We have so many ways to donate,” she says. “We have a number of fundraisers, and people are still donating to the cause. It’s just spread out more over the course of the year.” A new event will be held this year in Kemptville at Riverside Park with a 2km and 5km fun run. The event, to be held Sept. 27, is called Neon Nights and money raised from this fundraiser will go to childhood cancer. Another newer event earlier this year was the Rave-a-lution, a dance/exercise party held at the Perth Civitan Club. Gifford hopes to find some volunteers to help her with the second installment of this initiative. For more information on the Canadian Cancer Society, please visit their website: www.cancer.ca.

Take action against cancer now! Changing public policy is one of the most effective tools for preventing cancer and helping those living with and beyond cancer. The best way to change public policy is for Canadians to speak up and make our collective voices heard. Funding of take home cancer drugs It is estimated that 2 out of 5 Canadians are expected to develop cancer in their lifetime. Cancer is stressful enough without adding the extra burden of financial stress and anxiety related to drug access. Unfortunately, the current system in Ontario often does create this additional stress, and at times delays or prevents patients from accessing cancer medications. The Canadian Cancer Society recommends that Ontario develop a provincial program that provides full coverage for eligible cancer drugs taken at home. Ontario has the opportunity to study and review the programs in the other provinces and develop a program that is right for Ontario. It is essential that stakeholders, including the Society, Cancer Care Ontario, patients, and the insurance and pharmaceutical industries, be part of the discussion and involved in the development of the program. Flavoured tobacco In order to remain profitable, the tobacco industry must find new smokers to replace those who die from tobacco related disease or quit. Flavoured tobacco products are designed to appeal to youth and are available in candy and fruit flavours and are often wrapped in shiny

youth-friendly packaging. The Canadian Cancer Society is asking the government to #endtheflavour and ban all flavoured tobacco products, including flavoured smokeless tobacco products. Attempts have been made to ban flavoured tobacco but they have not been enough. In 2010, both the Government of Ontario and the Government of Canada banned the sale of candy-flavoured cigarillos. This law didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go far enough because it only banned one product: cigarillos. The law is ineffective because it has a loophole

that defines a cigarillo as 1.4 grams or less. This opened the door for the same product, just larger, to be made. This means that candy-flavoured cigarillos as well as a wide variety of other flavoured tobacco products are still being sold in Ontario. This is why we need a complete ban on flavoured tobacco products. What you can do There are lots of ways you can advocate and help in the fight against cancer.

Dragon sequel offers wonderful adventure Planked brie with blueberry chutney perfect as appetizer or dessert

MOVIE: How to Train Your Dragon 2 STARRING Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler, America Ferrera, Cate Blanchett, Craig Ferguson, Kit Harington and Djimon Hounsou DIRECTOR: Dean DeBlos RATING: PG Arts – How to Train Your Dragon 2 will break your heart, and then set your spirit soaring. It’s an emotional rollercoaster, but what an incredible ride. It’s been five years since Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) and Toothless made peace between the people of Berk and the dragons. Life on Berk has become a lot better, but Hiccup is still searching for something. He’s still not sure who he is, and his father, Chief Stoic (Gerard Butler), isn’t helping with talk of Hiccup becoming chief. There’s a whole world to explore and mysteries to discover. New islands and new dragons that Hiccup wants to find. One of these explorations leads Hiccup to someone he never dreamed of meeting: his mother Valka (Cate Blanchett). Valka wasn’t eaten by a dragon, she was taken by a dragon. She’s spent the last 20 years living with dragons and learning all about them. She’s also been rescuing dragons from Drago Bloodfist

My Take MARK HASKINS

(Djimon Hounsou). Drago is a bloodthirsty warrior who’s been building a dragon army to conquer the world. The only ones in Drago’s way are Hiccup, Valka, Stoic and all the rest of Berk’s dragon riders. Drago is unlike any foe Hiccup and Toothless have faced. Drago’s army is unlike anything the world has ever seen. This is their greatest test. When an animated film is this rich, this lush, this gorgeous you lose yourself in it. It’s at the point where you forget you’re watching an animated film. This is the experience of How To Train Your Dragon 2. This world, these characters and these dragons become living things right there on the screen, and even though they’re animated they become real. This isn’t a story but an adventure. Before the credits are done you’re flying across the ocean and riding the backs of dragons. This film pulls you in

and connects with you in a way that all films hope to do, but few actually do. The entire cast returns for this sequel, and they’ re perfect. Gerard Butler and Craig Fergusson are two of my favourite Vikings. America Ferrera gives Astrid her fire and fight, and Jay Baruchel not only gives Hiccup his voice he gives him his soul. Along with the returning cast members are a few new voices. I can’t think of anyone better to be the voice of Hiccup’s fierce dragon loving mother than Cate Blanchett. Kit Harington is a nice addition to the cast as dragon wrangler Eret, and Djimon Hounsou is everything you could hope for in a villain who breaks dragons to his will. How to Train Your Dragon 2 is one of those rare films that isn’t so much a movie as it is an experience. It’s definitely not for the faint of heart. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

Catholic school board using technology for improved communication between schools News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The following are highlights from the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario (CDSBEO) meeting held June 3 at the board office in Kemptville. CDSBEO schools value and appreciate the power of communication. Technology has vastly transformed and improved communication through better accessibility, flexibility and the ability to more easily collaborate. Schools are making the most of technology when communicating with students, parents and our Catholic school communities. Tom Jordan, superintendent of school effectiveness, presented information to the board regarding some of the ways which technology is being leveraged by schools to improve and enhance communication. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Synrevoice program, which allows schools to send out a recorded message via telephone to parents, is used extensively throughout the board. It is an excellent tool for sharing general information, reminders, and providing updates to parents regarding changes to school routines,â&#x20AC;? explained Jordan. Schools websites are tools used extensively by board schools, as well as teacher sites, which are used to provide updates, information, and homework information to students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Close to 45 per cent of our schools are also utilizing Facebook and Twitter to communicate with students and parents. The tools also help to share good news stories and photos,â&#x20AC;? added Jordan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In addition, approximately 42 per cent of our Catholic school councils are utilizing some form of electronic communication with their parent communities.â&#x20AC;? Technological initiatives through-

out the board are linked to the CDSBEO strategic plan, which outlines that the board is committed to seek out and utilize technologies, including social media, to ensure effective and efficient communication practices. J.L. Jordan Catholic School â&#x20AC;&#x153;Christ is Our Compassâ&#x20AC;? program For any individual, business, organization, school, or society to be able to succeed at consistently moving in the direction of their vision, each individual must be able to identify and embrace a core set of values and remain true to these values through the development of habits of mind, and habits of soul. Since 2008, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our Compass is Christâ&#x20AC;? program has helped individuals set and achieve their vision for themselves, and for their school. J.L. Jordan Catholic School principal, Paul Mantha, developed the vision and established the program six years ago, while vice-principal at Bishop Macdonell Catholic School. Based on his own personal mission statement developed nearly 20 years ago, Mantha created the program from a need for direction and focus. It provides students, staff, and families with four common principles to aspire to. These principles become their mission, their common language and practice, as they move toward a common goal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The program was inspired by my own beliefs around the need for a personal mission statement, and also from Stephan Coveyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ideas around core values, and Ron Morrishâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ideas around the importance of taking the time to teach the little things,â&#x20AC;? explained Mantha in his presentation to the board.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first year it was put in place at Bishop Macdonell, the program was embraced by staff and within the first year of implementation we saw a reduction of over 50 per cent in behavioural incidents and suspensions. All staff were focusing on teaching from a proactive stance â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we were not relying on intervention and consequence alone, we invested heavily in prevention,â&#x20AC;? he added. Focused on a set of core values and collective visioning, the program is discussed and reviewed with staff, students, and the community at the beginning of each school year. It is then reviewed and reinforced with students several times throughout the year. Core values set out in the program establish direction and help maintain a clear focus. The vision, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Guided by the Holy Spirit, we create a community of peace where all learners think clearly, act wisely, feel deeply, and live responsibly,â&#x20AC;? has been incorporated the programs core values on a poster. This summary is displayed prominently in all public areas and classrooms, to help with daily reflection on the program principles. The four cardinal points, which are listed on the poster with supporting information, include: Focus on Excellence, Do the Right Thing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Even When No One is Looking, Treat People with Respect, and Leave a Legacy. The points of focus are based on Christâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teachings, and are the core values of the compass program. The school has also adopted a theme song called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes I Canâ&#x20AC;? to help encourage students with following the moral compass. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In addition, Compass Champions Awards are given every two weeks by

teachers at a school assembly, and students listen intently as to why each student received the award,â&#x20AC;? added Mantha. Aboriginal role models in the classroom The CDSBEO continues to strive to meet the goals set forth in the Ontario First Nation, MĂŠtis, and Inuit Education Policy Framework. In doing so, there has been an intentional focus on collecting and analyzing data connected with our self-identified students and creating initiatives which respond to what the data is indicating. Curriculum consultant and Aboriginal education lead, Jennifer Deschamps, presented information on the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Aboriginal Role Models in the Classroomâ&#x20AC;? initiative, which has been piloted in four schools where there are clusters of selfidentified students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Through this initiative, opportunities are created for students to interact in cultural ways with Aboriginal role models and at the same time help build awareness for all students and educatorsâ&#x20AC;? explained Deschamps. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is also increasing the involvement of First Nation, MĂŠtis and Inuit community partners with our Catholic schools.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We looked at the research, specifically in Ontario, which focused on the importance of integrating our self-identified students through Aboriginal teachings, as well as the importance of building partnerships with the Aboriginal community, and between students and the Aboriginal community,â&#x20AC;? she added. Aboriginal community members, who were selected to become the role models for the various schools, and grade levels,

were connected directly with the geographical region of each school. As the Aboriginal education lead, Deschamps partnered with school educator teams and Aboriginal community partners to make collaborative decisions about how the Aboriginal role model experiences would unfold in each school. In all schools involved, Aboriginal role models made multiple visits to their assigned school and facilitated cultural experiences in both formal and informal settings, allowing opportunities for students to learn, to interact, and to build relationships and pride. Annual report on provision of special education services The Special Education Plan for June 2014, as outlined in the Standards for School Boardsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Special Education Plans, has been compiled by consulting with necessary stakeholders and involving key participants in the process. The report includes recommendations to be implemented, including the staff to be allocated for schools, professional development, as well as plans for communication and involvement of parents. Superintendent of school effectiveness, Dr. Donaleen Hawes, brought forth the annual report on the provision of special education programs and services to the board. The report was presented to the special education advisory committee, on Wednesday, May 28, and the committee unanimously supported the recommendations included. The report and accompanying recommendations were also approved by the board for submission to the Ministry of Education. Submitted by the CDSBEO. R0012757045
