News – The clock is ticking for Fetherston residents waiting to learn if they will lose their homes. Forbes Symon, North Grenville Director of Planning and Development, said that if no one comes forward with a serious offer to fix the problem by the end of August, then the only option available to the municipality will be to get the people out. “The (septic) system can’t make it through another winter,” he said. Symon said the municipality’s main concern is for the health and safety of residents, which is why drastic measures have been taken in recent weeks. The municipality has been actively involved in the issues surrounding Fetherston since 2005. “You can look at it and say if various groups in the past had done things differently, then we wouldn’t be here,” said Symon. “Looking back isn’t going to help.” The timeline surrounding the more recent events was dictated by the failure of the septic systems this past spring. The report that was issued to the municipality was backed up by an additional inspection conducted by the North Grenville building inspector, who confirmed the seriousness of the problem. “We’ve been told there’s a serious threat to the health of the residents,” said Symon. Symon said the municipality is being as fair and transparent as possible throughout the whole process. “After the owner’s company went bankrupt, we held a public meeting where we said we would try to find a new owner and if not, we would have to close the park.” Symon said the municipality has provided and will continue to provide all the support it can to the residents of Fetherston. He said municipal staff made it very clear to the residents that

if an owner could not be found, then the park’s closure was inevitable. “We continue to do our due diligence by trying to find someone to buy the park,” said Symon. Currently, the municipality is dealing with two interested parties, but neither has submitted serious offers to buy the park. “We danced around with a group for three years,” said Symon. “We changed the zoning of the land, had the property surveyed and received a site plan from them. “Then they backed out. I don’t know why. That’s a question you would have to ask them.” Symon said the municipality is very motivated towards finding an owner for the park, which would be the ideal solution to the problem. To date, the municipality has never received a serious offer to purchase Fetherston. “The issue is $750,000,” said Symon. “Council made it very clear that this is not something the municipality should pay for.” Putting out the capital to save Fetherston represents a 10 to 12 per cent tax increase for every home owner in North Grenville. “When you boil it right down, there is a serious threat to people’s health and safety,” said Symon. “That has to be addressed. We can’t just walk away from that.” Symon said that handing out the Notice of Violations to the residents of Fetherston was the hardest thing he’s had to do in 25 years of public service. “I had go around and look into these people’s eyes and tell them they might lose their homes,” he said. Symon said that if anything could be done, then the municipality would be doing it. “We have a job to do,” said the director. “No one is doing this without understanding how severe an action this is.” Residents continue to hope for a solution.

TransCanada pipeline causes concern By JENNIFER WESTENDORP jwestendorp@perfprint.ca

News – Members of Sustainable North Grenville feel the proposed TransCanada pipeline, which will run through the North East corner of the community and be operational by 2017, is too big a risk to take. “The simple question I have is what benefit could there possibly be to make up for the risks involved?” said Ian Angus, a member of SNG. “The only thing I can think of is profit for oil companies.” Angus said the company intends to retrofit an existing 55-year-old pipe, which runs under a portion of the Rideau River, to transfer not oil, but bitumen. He said bitumen is a very different animal than oil, which has clean-up procedures in place in case of water-related spills. “Oil floats on water,” said Angus. Angus said oil is not what TransCanada proposes to use the pipe for. According to the SNG member, the company intends to transport a substance called dilbit, which is essentially diluted bitumen. “Bitumen is mined from the tar sands,” said Angus. “It is the consistency of dry peanut butter. It contains sand, sulfur, heavy metals and various chemicals.” He explained that bitumen won’t flow through pipes, unlike oil. Bitumen has to be boiled down,

using enormous amounts of water, to produce a substance with the consistency of slightly warmer peanut butter. After the boiling process, Angus said solvents are added to the substance to create dilbit. He said TransCanada won’t release information regarding the contents of these solvents, preferring instead to keep it a trade secret. “If the pipe leaks, the dilbit is heavier than water and will sink to the bottom of the river,” said Angus. “The solvents are lighter and tend to evaporate, which could send poisonous gases into the air.” Angus said that the materials that will be transported through the pipe are highly corrosive. He spoke at length of a spill that occurred on the Kalamazoo River in Michigan, which occurred three years ago. He said that roughly 843,000 gallons of dilbit poured into the river, which cost over a billion dollars to clean up. “That was a smaller pipeline than the one they have proposed to go through North Grenville,” said Angus. “Oil in water is bad enough, but they have a clean-up procedure in place for that. What happened in Kalamazoo was different. The solvents evaporated right away and the whole town had to be evacuated.” Angus said residents weren’t allowed to go swimming, fishing or boating on the river for years following the incident.

Lanark County slam poetry team gears up for national spoken word festival By ELAINE TAMBLYN-WATTS

Community – Lanark County’s burgeoning slam poetry scene, now in its sixth year, continues to thrive this summer as the Live Poets Society (LiPS) prepares to send its competing team to Montreal for the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word in November. After hosting a slam every month since November 2012, alternating between Perth and Carleton Place venues, LiPS ended the competitive season with its final slam on June 8 at the Carleton Place Town Hall. The competition may be over, but now the real work begins for the Lanark County live poets. This year’s team – as decided in June’s finals – consists of Tammy “Dimorphic� MacKenzie, Satinka “Poetiquette� Schilling, Andy Kerr-Wilson and Elaine Marilyse Tamblyn-Watts, with Beth “bWILDer� Schilling as team alternate. The poets are tasked with fundraising for their upcoming trip to Montreal and in preparation for the national stage, they will be appearing on quite a few local ones this summer. On Saturday, Aug. 10, the team is slated to perform two shows in Perth. The team and its supporters will be at Perth Farmers’ Market at the Crystal Palace between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. to perform free of charge. That same evening LiPS will be appearing at the Baker’s Bean at 1 Sherbrooke Street East from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. alongside local musician Matt Dickson for a double bill of poetry and music. Admission to the Baker’s Bean show is $10. Silent auction and draw prize items will be available at both venues as well. The Lanark County live poets have a considerable amount of spoken word ‘firsts’ to their name. While slam scenes generally come together in major urban centers, LiPS has broken the mold, becoming the very first team to represent a rural area at the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word

(CFSW) in 2008. That same year the collective broke another record, sending the youngestever CFSW competitor and first-ever minor, Carleton Place native Emily Kwissa, to the national stage. Two years later, we had another record-breaker, in which the LiPS’ team featured the youngest and the oldest competitors, and in 2011 a mother and a daughter competing on the same team (a feat that the Shilling family will be reprising this year). This year the team breaks no new records – the youngest poets, Marilyse and Poetiquette, are both fresh high school grads, and while LiPS remain the only rural competitors, the festival itself is the biggest news for the spoken word community. Taking place in Montreal, this year’s Canadian Festival of Spoken Word will be the first ever to be fully bilingual. While those of us in the Ottawa Valley are accustomed to seeing labels, pamphlets and signs written in both French and English, the nuanced and complex nature of poetry presents a unique challenge for bilingualism. The specifics of translation are still taking shape, but each poet is required to submit the text for at least one piece in advance to a group of professional translators who have volunteered their expertise to help the poems reach as many ears as possible. After an exciting season of powerful spoken word, both from countless slam and open mic performers and featured poets from all across the country, including Magpie Ulysses, DMP, Rusty Priske and ArRay-of-Words, Lanark LiPS looks forward to a summer of local poetry before setting out to compete once more in the fall. For more information on the Lanark County Live Poets Society, supporting the team, upcoming events, or to enquire about booking poets for an event, email lanarklips@hotmail.com or look for LiPS on Facebook.

Poetry slams originated in Chicago in 1986, but have since gained enormous popularity, spawning scenes all over the world. The oeuvre is competitive performance art before both judges and an audience; more simply, slam is duelling with words. In some early Chicago slams, poets actually performed in makeshift boxing rings and wore boxing gloves while they spoke.

This, sadly, is no longer common practice, but modern slam offers plenty of excitement to make up for it. The rules are straightforward - poets perform two original pieces without props, musical accompaniment or costume, and are judged by five audience members. Pieces which are longer than three minutes incur time penalties of half a point per ten seconds over three min-

utes, with a ten second grace period. Slam poetry is generally known for its energetic performances, powerful emotional punches and instant, enthusiastic audience feedback. While definitely sophisticated and packed with deeper meanings, a slam is a far cry from a traditional, written poetry reading. Elaine Tamblyn-Watts is a member of the Lanark County Live Poets Society.

Lanark County’s construction season well underway part of five-year plans. Council approves the projects year by year. “The public works department is always working to maintain and improve our roads network and enhance public safety,” said Warden Bill Dobson (Montague Reeve). “A strong network is essential to the economy and quality of life in Lanark County, and I applaud the department’s efforts to do this work in a cost-effective way that benefits our ratepayers.” All of the pavement preservation projects for 2013 are now complete and included County Road 29 from Pakenham to the City of Ottawa boundary, a section of County Road 20 (Waba Road) from Pakenham to the intersection with County Road 22 (Shaw Road), McNeely Avenue and Townline Road in Carleton Place, County Road 2 from Merrickville to the boundary with the City of Ottawa, and County Road 49 from Almonte to the City of Ottawa boundary. Road rehabilitation projects for 2013 include: County Road 19: Crain’s Construction Limited has completed rehabilitation work on 2.5 km of County Road 19 (Bennett Lake Road) at the intersection with County Road 36 at a cost of $347,000. Starting last year and over the next three years the county will be working east along this road toward Fallbrook. County Road 12: Crain’s Construction Limited has started work on County Road 12 (McDonalds Corners Road), picking up from the last phase of a multi-year project. The work extends from the Bathurst Line East to the Playfairville Bridge and a small piece coming into Lanark Village as far as the Mill Street Bridge. The $1 million project is expected to be finished at the beginning of August. County Road 16A: Cavanagh Construction will

begin work on an 800-metre stretch of County Road 16A in Almonte (Mississippi Mills) starting Aug. 6 from the intersection with County Road 29 to Country Street. The joint project with the town involved looking at options to accommodate cyclists. Three options were explored, including an offroad pathway, a “share the road” concept with a widened road platform and an option with dedicated cycling lanes on both sides of the road, which was ultimately chosen. These will be the first designated cycling lanes on a county road. The roadway is being widened within the existing road allowance, and the pre-existing gravel shoulders will be paved and marked as cycling lanes with symbols. The project cost is $850,000, with 10 per cent coming from Mississippi Mills to cover drainage work and sidewalks. During the day traffic will be reduced to a single lane, but contractors will make sure there is access to driveways. County Road 17: On Aug. 13, Karson Kartage & Konstruction will begin work on Martin Street North from Carrs Street to the former rail crossing just north of the new White Tail Ridge subdivision. The project, which is just under 2 km, has a cost of $432,000 and was delayed until the subdivision was well underway. Now that the rail line has been abandoned, a winding section of road that crossed the tracks will be straightened. Kilmarnock Bridge: Work on this bridge, jointly owned by Lanark County and the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville, began in April and finished in mid-June. The bridge was built in the 1960s and the work represented its mid-life rehabilitation. It was closed for the duration of the project in order to reduce

costs, accelerate the work and improve safety for workers. It was completed by Canadyne Engineering at a cost of $225,000, which was shared between the two counties. Mississippi River Bridge: Detailed design work for the replacement of the bridge between Balderson and Lanark Village on County Road 511 is ongoing with consultants McCormick Rankin. A public meeting was held last year and the design process must include consultation with stakeholder agencies, which will take place over the next few months. A tender for the work will likely be issued this January with construction starting as soon as possible in the spring. At this point the focus is on a design that will allow the county to keep one lane open throughout the construction, thereby eliminating the need for detours. The project is expected to take four or five months and is estimated at $3 million. The county was fortunate to be successful in its application to the Provincial Municipal Infrastructure Investment Initiative fund and is receiving $2 million, which is enabling the project to proceed in 2014. Traffic signal replacement: The county is upgrading traffic signals on McNeely Avenue in Carleton Place. The signals were installed in 1995 and some parts of the controllers are now obsolete. The lights along McNeely will also be synchronized. The work is being completed by Parham Engineering in August and September. For all of the road construction projects, traffic may be reduced to one lane from time to time. “To ensure driver and worker safety, we remind motorists to please obey all signs and traffic control personnel,” Allan said. “We regret any inconvenience or disruption to traffic that may be caused.” Submitted by the County of Lanark.

News – As part of its 2013 construction season, Lanark County is improving 50 kilometres of roads and has completed one bridge project. This year, $5.25 million is allocated to construction, including 41 km of pavement preservation, which accounts for 30 per cent of the budget, and 9 km of road rehabilitation bridgework, which makes up 50 per cent of the budget. “We are starting to see good success and results from the pavement preservation program we began several years ago,” said public works director Steve Allan. “The strategy focuses on renewing road surfaces that do not have structural problems. It is preventive maintenance that decreases the frequency of the need for complete rehabilitation, which is much more cost effective.” If the roadbed is good, then it is a suitable candidate for pavement preservation, which can include crack sealant to prevent moisture damage, micro surfacing or adding another layer of surface treatment. “There is a short window of time when a road is suitable for pavement preservation. After that, it can deteriorate rapidly,” he said. “Surface treatment is particularly good for roads that are susceptible to heaving. We go back every seven or eight years to do surface treatment that is not asphalt. It is more flexible, and although it can be may be noisier to drive on, it performs as well or better.” After a major rehabilitation, pavement preservation maintains the road. “It’s not unlike servicing your car or performing routine roof maintenance with shingles. It extends the life of the road and keeps it in good shape.” The public works department oversees construction, operation, repair and maintenance of 565 km of roads and 77 bridge and culvert structures. Every year the department assesses the entire road system and makes a priority list that forms

Local author signs book deal with US publisher By ASHLEY KULP akulp@perfprint.ca

Arts – After self-publishing her first novel and securing an agent last year, local author Brenda Corey Dunne has now added another accomplishment to her burgeoning career: a new book deal with a US publisher. The Oxford Mills resident signed with US publisher Jolly Fish Press, based in Provo, Utah, in June. They have acquired the world distribution and publishing rights to her second book, an adult fiction novel entitled ‘Dependent.’ It will be launched in summer 2014. “It’s very exciting,� Dunne admitted. “They’re a small publisher gaining momentum and have released a bunch of books. There’s lots of buzz about them.� ‘Dependent,’ which Dunne refers to as “raw,� touches on the pressures of having a spouse in the military. It’s a big departure from her first one, ‘Treasure in the Flame,’ which was young adult historical fiction. “‘Treasure’ is more light and fluffy,� Dunne explained. “I call it cotton candy and ‘Dependent’ is my full-fledged bordeaux. It’s more literary and touches on more pertinent items in today’s society.� Dunne has firsthand knowledge of the challenges of having a spouse in service; her husband Tom is an air force pilot. However, she said it is a fictional tale. “It’s about what happens in the background with the spouse at home...and how the person follows along in posts from city to city, country to country,� she said. “It’s difficult to maintain careers and their sense of self. It’s loosely based on the experiences of people around me and myself, but it is a work of fiction.� “‘Dependent’ discusses a lot of problems of today’s military families such as deployment, PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), authority figures who overstep proper boundaries and there’s been a lot of that in the news lately,� Dunne continued.

This book has been a long time coming for Dunne, who first began writing it back in 2006. The process was so intense, as she was dealing with some of her own personal issues at the time, she set it aside after finishing 40 pages. “I revisited it off and on for the next six or seven years and finally in November of this past year (2012), I sat down and said I needed to finish it,� she said. “It was something that’s important, so I put my head down and plowed through.� Dunne signed with her agent, Jennifer Mishler, of the New York’s Literary Counsel, in December and began shopping around for an interested publisher for ‘Dependent’ this past January. She noted it was a turnaround of within weeks before she found Jolly Fish Press, established in October 2011, which fit in with her needs. “Everybody dreams of a huge book deal with one of the big five or six publishers, but I’m really excited about this and they’re (Jolly Fish Press) really excited about it to. To feel their energy is really good,� Dunne remarked. Their penchant for creating eye-catching covers didn’t hurt in making her decision either. “... Their covers are absolutely fabulous and really, in today’s day and age, the cover is what sells the book, the story does too, but nobody picks it up if it doesn’t have a catchy cover,� she said. Book signings Dunne is currently working on three other projects, including a sequel to ‘Treasure in the Flame.’ “I have too many ideas and too little time,� she joked. She is also continuing to publicize ‘Treasure in the Flame,’ which has been well received throughout the area, Dunne said. Coming up this Saturday, Aug. 10, she will be at the Gloucester Chapters on Ogilvie Road from 1 to 4 p.m. The next day, Aug. 11, Dunne will be signing books at the Kemptville Kinsmen Farmers’ Market in Riverside Park from noon to 4 p.m. For more information on Dunne, visit her blog at www.brendacoreydunne.blogspot.ca.

Elder abuse must be taken seriously, says advocate News – Power of Attorney abuse is becoming a “huge problem,” and those affected by it may not have the capacity to advocate for themselves. This is one of the many reasons someone might call the elder abuse Peer Support Line. The line, in place for elder abuse covers essentially from Prescott to Trenton, Belleville, Bancroft. And volunteers are being sought to aid with the line. The line has recently been expanded with the aid of the South East Community Care Access Centre and volunteers are needed to answer phones. The line itself is for seniors or those who suspect a senior is being abused. The calls are answered by a “peer who will listen in a non-judgemental way and provide information on possible sources to help, only if you wish assistance,” says a promotional brochure. Of course, if the situation is an emergency or could be dangerous, dial 9-1-1. The Elder Abuse Prevention Support Line can be reached toll free by calling 1-855-542-1336. Upon calling the number, the caller is asked to choose one of the local lines, one is offered in Brockville, Belleville and Kingston. “We need more volunteers for looking after the phone. We have only had the phone here for a couple of months,” explained Jen Knudson, elder abuse prevention Brockville team leader. “It is not a huge volunteer commitment.” She explained it isn’t counselling as such, the role of the volunteer is to listen - comparable to a triage at an emergency room. All phone calls to the line are anonymous. Names are not asked for, nor do those running the line provide last names. As mentioned, volunteers are being sought. Volunteers rotate the phone amongst themselves; no one carries the phone for more than a week at a time. Generally at the most, 20 calls will be received in a week. Training is provided to all volunteers. There are three levels of response - one being a phone response. To call the senior and let them know what agencies exist if they might want help. To provide them with help to solve their problem. There are instances where an advocacy team will attend the senior’s residence and of course if the situation is threatening or dangerous, the police are called. In a presentation earlier this year in Brockville, Dave Swerdfeger, elder abuse prevention advocate with the Council on Aging for Frontenac-Kingston spoke to a group of nurse case managers gathered at the Community Care Access Centre. “We want elder abuse to be (seen) the same as child abuse. This isn’t for discussion; if you see it report it,” he said at the time. “We haven’t done a good enough job of getting through to people in this area (about the line),” he said of awareness levels. The topics Swerdfeger brought to the table earlier this year for discussion included; why people don’t talk about elder abuse, what it is, forms of elder abuse, who is affected by it, why abuse happens, why the victims don’t tell, prevention and who can help. He noted often elder abuse isn’t talked about due to a lack of visibility of those in the senior age category to other age groups. Oftentimes not speaking about the issue is due to a shyness or fear of old age or dealing with someone who might have a disability. Sometimes it is just due to lack of awareness or knowledge or a feeling of helplessness. Elder abuse is defined by Swerdfeger as, “a single or repeated act or lack of appropriate action, occurring in any relationship where there is an expectation of trust that causes harm or distress to an older adult.” Forms of abuse can be physical abuse and neglect (either active or passive), psychological, fi-

nancial or sexual. Medication abuse happens when caregivers or another, “drugs them (senior) to the point they aren’t a problem anymore.” It sedates them, essentially. As Knudson emphasized, so too did Swerdfeger in his presentation. He stated 75 per cent of elder abuse is financial and 75 per cent of that abuse is through Powers of Attorney (POA). Other forms of financial abuse include theft, fraud, theft by POA, and criminal breach of trust. Some of the signs and symptoms of a senior who is being financially abused include visitors to the home only on days when cheques are to arrive in the mail, evidence of questionable use of power of attorney, inappropriate banking activity, uncharacteristic unpaid bills, and the senior may become uncomfortable talking about money. “Power of Attorney is often used by people who have no idea what a POA is and is used by people who think it is a pipeline to people’s money,” he charged. He recalled a case whereby a senior had just come home from a stay in the hospital. His house had been emptied of furniture and there was a for sale sign on the home. His son had claimed POA and had sold everything. He had gone into the hospital with a grim prognosis; doctors didn’t feel he would make it. His son had claimed POA under Quebec laws, which deem the oldest son to automatically be POA. However, in Ontario, the location where the senior resided, that law does not exist and in fact his son had not been listed as POA. His son has consequently been charged with theft over $5,000. Another case he remembers well, was when a call came into the support line one evening from a woman in a panic. She had gone away to visit family for a month and upon her return her key did not work in her own door. She had owned a triplex, and caused enough of a stir trying to get her key in the door that a man answered. When she asked why he was in her home, the man didn’t know what she was talking about and said he was the rightful owner. Thinking she would sleep on it and resolve the matter in the morning, she attended an ATM. She knew there was over $100,000 in the bank account, so she would use a little to get a hotel room for the night. There was no money left. As it turned out, the day she had left, her son went to the doctor to get a note declaring her incompetent. Without seeing her, the doctor wrote him the note. Her son then went ahead and got a POA and proceeded to take her home and money. At this point, the doctor’s insurance company is paying for her house. Those in need of more information, or who may suspect abuse, or are a senior being abused may call the Elder Abuse Prevention Hot Line at 1-855542-1336, the Province of Ontario’s Senior Safety Line at 1-866-299-1011, or the Public Guardian and Trustee (for POA issues) 1-800-891-0506. For information about the South East Ontario Regional Elder Abuse Prevention Planning Network please visit www.sagelink.ca/reapseontario. The peer support line has support from the Council on Aging Frontenac-Kingston, the South East CCAC and the Ontario South East Local Health Integration Network. A seminar is being planned for October in Kingston. The subject will be POA abuse. Details are still being worked out, however it is hoped one portion of the day will be for professionals, the second half for the public. There will be fees associated with attending.

Federal government highlights elder abuse awareness project News – Older people with disabilities and people who are deaf will benefit from increased access to supports and services aimed at preventing elder abuse through the New Horizons for Seniors Program (NHSP). “Our government continues to combat the very serious issue of elder abuse in all its forms,” underlined the Honourable Alice Wong, Minister of State for Seniors, to mark World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) back in June. “By supporting elder abuse prevention activities, our government is helping protect the well-being and security of Canadian seniors.” Wong added that the Government of Canada recognizes the great work done by groups across Canada to raise awareness of elder abuse and help

seniors protect themselves from its many forms, including financial abuse. As part of these efforts, the Canadian Association for Community Living (CACL) has received $600,000 in funding for its NHSP project. This will help the CACL develop community responses across Canada related to the abuse of older people with disabilities and people who are deaf. The project engages communities to develop tools, resources and best practices on awareness and prevention of elder abuse. As well, older individuals with disabilities and their families will develop individual safety plans to support them in their communities. “Through this funding, the Disabled Women’s Network Canada and the Canadian Association

for Community Living, and many other provincial, territorial and local partners, are working together to improve communities across the country,” said Bonnie Brayton, national executive director, Disabled Women ‘s Network. “The NHSP is an exceptional example of how a focused funding strategy can result in change in attitude, approach and a real change in communities,” added Laurie Larson, president, Canadian Association for Community Living. “Local citizens are being given the opportunity to learn about and prevent the abuse of older people with disabili-

ties and people who are deaf.” This project is one of 33 pan-Canadian initiatives collectively receiving over $14 million in NHSP funding. Through Economic Action Plan 2013, the government proposes to better safeguard the well-being of seniors. The government also continues to ensure that Canadians are informed about the signs and symptoms of elder abuse. Visit seniors.gc.ca for information on the signs and symptoms of elder abuse, as well as resources for preventative action.

It’s just around the corner – the big day when your child or grandchild heads off to college or university for year one of their next great educational adventure. You’ve prudently planned for this day by regularly contributing to investments held within a Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) – and now it’s time to get the most out of it with the right withdrawal strategies that will minimize your student’s taxes and get the full benefit of the Educational Assistance Payments (EAPs) for qualifying educational programs. EAPs consist of the Canada Education Savings Grant (CESG), the Canada Learning Bond (CLB) and the income or growth earned from the money you’ve invested in the RESP.1 Withdraw EAPs before withdrawing contributions. As the subscriber of your student’s plan, you can elect to withdraw the income, grant, and bonds as EAPs, which will be taxable in the hands of your student whose low income, and personal credits and deductions (including the tuition credit, education credit, moving expenses deduction, and so on) should offset some or all of the income inclusion of the EAP. Withdraw contributions after your student starts school. Early withdrawal will

trigger a CESG repayment. Spread out the EAPs over the length of your student’s educational program. Taking a lump sum in the first year may burden your student with a high taxable income. Spreading out the EAPs over a number of years takes advantage of your student’s (usually) lower marginal tax rates. Avoid potential CESG clawbacks by withdrawing EAPs when you can. If there is any CESG or CLB remaining in your investments held within a RESP after your student completes (or leaves) their postsecondary program, you may be required to refund this “excess” CESG grant money. Get proof of enrolment right away so you’ll have money when you need it. Before releasing an EAP, your RESP carrier will require proof of enrollment. Use leftovers wisely. Any contributions remaining in the plan after your student finishes college or university are yours to use as you wish – transfer them to another child’s plan or withdraw them for personal use. When you started that RESP many years ago, you

probably wondered if it was a good investment strategy. Now you know that it was – especially today, with a postsecondary education so costly and so necessary. Talk to your professional advisor about other good strategies for achieving a debt-free education for your children or grandchildren and financial stability for your family. 1 The Canada Education Savings Grant (CESG) and the Canada Learning Bond (CLB) are provided by the Government of Canada. CLB eligibility depends on family income levels. Some provinces make education savings grants available to their residents.

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

Local unit of Canadian Cancer Society encourages good sun sense DEAR EDITOR: Editor’s note: The following is a response to a column which appeared in the July 11 issue of the EMC (‘Top sun safety myths debunked, Vitamin D is necessary for healthy living’). While outdoor activities are part of a healthy lifestyle, and natural sunlight is important to good health, there is a danger you can’t see – ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Too much exposure to UV rays increases the risk of skin cancer. Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer but you can take steps to protect yourself, especially between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. when the sun’s rays are at their strongest or any time of day when the UV Index is 3 or higher. To reduce your risk of getting skin cancer, follow these tips: • Use a sunscreen with SPF of 15 or higher. If you work outdoors or are planning to be outside most of the day, use an SPF 30. Apply the sunscreen 20 minutes prior to heading outdoors. • Cover up. Protect yourself with clothing that is loose fitting, tightly woven, and lightweight. When in the sun, wear a hat with a wide brim to

protect your head, face, ears, and neck. • Protect your vision. Sunglasses can help prevent damage to your eyes by protecting them from harmful UV rays. • Vitamin D. Produced in the skin when it is exposed to sunlight, vitamin D is needed for good bone and muscle health. A few minutes a day of unprotected sun exposure is usually all that is needed for some people to get enough vitamin D. You don’t need a tan to get benefits from the sun. You can get vitamin D through diet or by taking a supplement. • No safe way to get a tan. The sun and indoor tanning equipment such as tanning beds and sun lamps emit UV rays that can damage skin and increase the risk of skin cancer. The Canadian Cancer Society recommends you check your skin regularly and report any changes to your doctor. Learn more at cancer.ca.

COMMENTARY

Be vigilant against virus Editorial – Though cases of West Nile Virus (WNV) have been few and far between over the past couple of years, a positive sample found in Perth July 29 means the virus is back in the tri-county area. The Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit confirmed the presence of the virus in one of its traps in Perth, a first since 2003. However, it’s a good sign that no cases of WNV have been reported throughout the region, or the province, this summer. This announcement underlines the importance of protecting yourself and your family from contracting WNV, which can be fatal to those with weakened immune systems, but traditionally presents as a flu-like illness. Symptoms can include fever, headache, body aches, mild rash and swollen lymph glands. While municipalities are charged with ensuring their roads and ditches have proper drainage, there are several things homeowners can do to discourage mosquitoes from breeding. Those responsible for carrying WNV are container mosquitoes and like to live in warm, sheltered standing water. Removing those areas from your property is important as mosquitoes aren’t known to travel large distances, according to the health unit. Wearing light-coloured, loose clothing and applying a mosquito repellent containing 20 to 30 per cent DEET (six to 10 per cent for children) can also be effective. Be sure to replace torn window or door screens to keep the pests outdoors and if they do get inside, look for them on walls, near sinks, closets and in basements. Commonly used techniques to repel mosquitoes are bug zappers or citronella candles, but the health unit notes they have not proven to be deterrents to the pesky bugs. For more tips on how to protect yourself from WNV, visit www.healthunit.org.

Mother’s war on houseflies was on for another year Lifestyle – This time of year, Mother engaged in a never-ending battle with the housefly. She thought every fly on earth was put there to carry germs and contaminate whatever surface it happened to land on. Many of our neighbours hung strips of sticky stuff from their ceilings, but Mother would have no part of them. No siree! Most of these strips were hung over the kitchen tables, since that seemed to be where the flies accumulated, and if one fly ever had the misfortune of falling off and landing on the oil cloth, or heaven forbid, a piece of food, the entire table would have to be cleared, scoured, and whatever food it neared, scraped into Sport’s dog dish at the back door! And so, the strips were never used in our kitchen! Every summer Father hauled the screen door from the drive shed where it had been stored over winter, and he hung it with a tight spring attached. In fact, the spring, on Mother’s insistence, was so taut that if you weren’t quick enough getting into the house, you could lose a leg, or be maimed for life! That was just another way of making sure a stray fly didn’t get in with us.

There was never enough money to buy fly swatters, and Mother insisted we each have one. So they were homemade. Fashioned out of narrow slats of wood, with layers of green cheese cloth, or sometimes, very fine screening attached on the end between more small slats, the swatters worked just fine. They were stationed on the bench at the back door, and each of us was commanded to have ours at the ready, just in case a fly managed to enter the house while we came in through the screen door. In the summer time, any food on the bake table, prepared for our next meal, was covered with spanking clean flour bag tea towels. And when the bowls were moved over to the kitchen table, the towels stayed put. It was like a mystery trying to decide which mound of white held the meat, potatoes or vegetables. Father thought Mother went too far when it came to the common housefly. He insisted the Haneman family had managed to survive in spite of them for generations! Mother said, “And that’s a miracle in itself.” She pointed out to Father all he had to do was go out to the cow byre and see the swarms of flies covering the cows’ Vice President & Regional Publisher Mike Mount mmount@perfprint.ca 613-283-3182, ext. 104

He would know what, if flies were allowed inside, were brought into the house...right into the kitchen, where the very food we were putting in our mouths was there for the taking! At least once a week Mother had what we called her murderous attack on the common housefly. It didn’t matter how careful we were, how quickly we slammed the screen door, how diligent we were with the swatters, the flies always managed to come into the house. And when Mother couldn’t stand it any longer, she would announce at the breakfast table that this was the day! She would cast her eyes around the kitchen, and we wouldn’t even have to ask her just what day that would be.

without a doubt, it was the day Mother would be attacking the flies that managed, in spite of our best efforts to keep them out, got into the house. That meant no one, not even if the house was on fire, was allowed inside until Mother was finished with what my sister Audrey called “her murderous attack.” There was a big tin can of fly tox in the summer kitchen, and on the shelf was a contraption that had a container at one end, and a handle and cylinder at the other. Mother filled the can to capacity, put a white towel around her head, went into the kitchen slamming the doors behind her, and the attack began. I would often look in the kitchen window from my post outside, and there would be Mother furiously pumping the handle into the cylinder and pouring out what would be a burst of fog-like spray that hung in the air like gossamer curtains. I have no idea how Mother didn’t choke to death! As soon as she thought she had sprayed enough fly tox into the cavity of the kitchen, she would come out onto the back stoop, gasping for breath, the perspiration pouring down her face like ADVERTISING SALES: ADVERTISING SALES CO-ORDINATOR Andrea Harding SALES: Cheryl Johnston, Sharon Sinfield, Kathy Perreault, Liz Gray, Kevin Hoover, Jamie Rae-Gomes Email: emcsales@perfprint.ca Fax: 613-283-9988 THE DEADLINE FOR DISPLAY ADVERTISING IS MONDAY 4:30 PM

falling rain, and a look of complete satisfaction on her beet-red face. Then she would collapse into the twig chair, still with the spray can in her hand, and fan her face with the tail of her apron. We had to wait for ages before anyone was allowed back in the kitchen, and when we were, the grand clean-up began. The newspapers would be taken off the cooled Findlay Oval, rolled up and crammed into its fire box, Audrey would get the broom, and I stood at the ready with the dust pan, and the sweep-up began. The flies didn’t have a chance. Audrey would sweep up the dead bodies; I would take the dustpan to the stove, amazed at how many had fallen under Mother’s attack. Mother would light a match to the papers in the stove after piling on a couple sticks from the wood box, and soon the Findlay Oval would be raging. The smell of the fly tox hung in the air for hours, but that didn’t seem to bother Mother in the least. The deed was done for a short spell. But alas, the never-ending battle against the housefly continued until the frost hit the farm at the end of the summer. • Advertising rates and terms and conditions are according to the rate card in effect at time advertising published. • The advertiser agrees that the publisher shall not be liable for damages arising out of errors in advertisements beyond the amount charged for the space actually occupied by that portion of the advertisement in which the error occurred, whether such error is due to negligence of its servants or otherwise... and there shall be no liability for non-insertion of any advertisement beyond the amount charged for such advertisement. • The advertiser agrees that the copyright of all advertisements prepared by the Publisher be vested in the Publisher and that those advertisements cannot be reproduced without the permission of the Publisher. • The Publisher reserves the right to edit, revise or reject any advertisement.

LET TERS TO THE EDITOR Reid just doesn’t get food safety tion staff at CFIA, which will reduce, not strengthen our food safety system. They also failed to implement the final recommendation of the Weatherill Report, which called for an independent, comprehensive resource audit to ensure that the CFIA had the resources, human and otherwise to carry out its mandate. Even the former president of the CFIA, Carole Swan, said that what they did do was not the audit the Weatherill report called for. That could have prevented many of the problems. This slapdash approach allowed problems at XL Foods to go unchecked for years, allowing the E. coli contamination that caused 18 Canadians to get sick, cost $16 to 27 million to the beef industry and undermined consumer confidence in our food safety system. Will Mr. Reid and the Conservatives actually implement the recommended changes to food inspection to prevent a third major food crisis on their watch? Don’t hold your breath – when I asked in Question Period, they refused to commit to an implementation date. Frank Valeriote, MP Liberal Party of Canada Agriculture Critic

Fun ways to teach kids about money DEAR EDITOR: A growing number of Canadians are opting for “staycations” this summer. This is not surprising – vacationing at home can be a good way to save money, and to enjoy activities close to home. It’s also a great opportunity to teach your kids about money. Check local listings for familyfriendly events or activities, and ask your kids to help plan a day trip of their choosing–within a budget. They will learn to plan ahead and anticipate costs, and to make decisions like whether to bring or buy a lunch. For young kids, going for ice cream is a great time to show them that when you spend money on one item, that means you have less available for something else. Teenagers might enjoy The City (http:// www.themoneybelt.gc.ca/theCity-laZone/eng/ login-eng.aspx), a free online tool where they can learn about financial issues like needs versus wants, budgeting and goal-setting through

different characters in an interactive, virtual world. Parents can take advantage of everyday activities to teach a financial lesson. Go through coupons together, and ask your child to clip those for items on your shopping list. At the store, show them the costs of different items, like their favourite cereal. Involve your child in decision making when you’re deciding between similar products. Promoting financial education is a key part of what we do at the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada (FCAC). Parents can check out “Teaching Children About Money (http://www. fcac-acfc.gc.ca/eng/consumers/lifeEvents/ teachChild/index-eng.asp) and our other free resources on teaching financial literacy to children at www.itpaystoknow.gc.ca.

DEAR EDITOR: Canadians count on the government to make sure the food we eat is safe, yet when it comes to the inspection system, Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox and Addington MP Scott Reid and the Conservative government refuse to own up to their own mistakes. An independent review of last year’s XL Foods E. coli outbreak, which led to the largest beef recall in Canadian history, found that the outbreak was entirely preventable. It found that there was not “a strong food safety culture” in the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) at all levels. Staff were inadequately trained and inspection practices weren’t good enough. Our government failed. Many of these problems would have been fixed if the Conservatives had followed through on their commitment to implement the recommendations of the Weatherill Report on the listeriosis contamination at Maple Leaf Foods in 2008, a serious shortcoming they refuse to admit. The Conservatives claim they have been “bolstering” our food inspection system and that they have “added 20 per cent to the personnel.” In fact, documents reveal they plan to cut hundreds of food safety and inspec-

decline of particular mussell species and the decline of biodiversity in local fish. The explanation is as follows. Mussells and clams live partially buried in sediment with little traveling about, which potentially restricts their distribution. The problem is solved by some mussel species which produce specialized larvae, called glochidia (from the Greek: pointed or hooked), that are shed in clouds, manage to attach to the gills of a particular species of host fish, and so are transported. They then drop off in new habitat suitable to both fish and mussell. For example, the female PocketBook Mussell extends its mantle, the tip of which is shaped, marked and moves like a small fish. This attracts a desired larger fish for a lift. When the fish ‘takes the bait’ the mussell ejects a puff of glochidia that attach to the gills, thus obtaining a convenient taxi for its young! Other species mimic a worm to attract a ‘ride’. Check out YouTube. com for videos of some of these creative mussel displays, says Madill. What can we do to improve the health of our waters and native freshwater Molluscs? How can we make a mussel as “happy as clam?” If you would like further information, please contact our speaker, she welcomes inquiries and can be contacted at the Canadian Nature Museum Research Building in Gatineau or via email at jmadill@mus-nature.ca. An excellent reference guide to local mussels is by J. Metcalfe-Smith, A. MacKenzie, I. Carmichael and D. McGoldrick, Photo Field Guide to the Freshwater Mussels of Ontario, 2005, published by the St. Thomas Field Naturalist Club. Other useful references for general information on the zoology and ecology of mussels and clams include online information on mussels of eastern Ontario at pinicola.ca and books by Clarke, A. H. 1981, The Fresh Water Molluscs of Canada. National Museum of Natural Sciences, National Museum of Canada, and T.I. Storer and R. L. Usinger, 1957, General Zoology, McGraw-Hill, Toronto. J.H. Bendell is a member of the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists and a retired biology professor.

and importantly light blocking matter. They also provide benefit by mixing sediments as they slowly move. They provide food for fish, muskrats, shorebirds and others. Also since some mussells are quite long lived, many living decades, they carry within their tissues a useful record of biological and chemical changes in the environment. As they age annual rings form in the shell as in a tree. According to Madill, some Eastern Pondshells can live 200 years! But why are mussells so endangered? At one time, commercial harvest and disruption from log drives reduced their numbers, but these are not ongoing. Sadly, and to our peril, the current plight of bivalves reflects the damage we have done and are doing to water and its inhabitants. Mussells need clean, clear running water relatively high in oxygen and water bodies connected to maintain stable levels and flow, provide nutrients, and permit dispersal of the young. In turn, the density and persistence of these creatures are good indicators of healthy waters. Main disrupters are dams and locks that restrict flow and cause extreme fluctuation in temperature and levels of water. According to Madill, it can take 50 to 100 years for an area of mussells to be reestablished once it has been disrupted. Mussells are also particularly sensitive to pollutants of many kinds which include fertilizers from lawns and cropland. Many large water bodies and waterways have been made uninhabitable by channeling, loss of near shore habitat, and choking with litter and debris. Another significant threat has been the invasive Zebra Mussel, perhaps the most damaging to our native bivalves, as well as to human infrastructure such as intake pipes. It appeared in the Great Lakes in 1988 on ships from Middle Europe. Of incredible reproductive capacity, one female can produce 30,000 to 1,000,000 larvae annually. Madill noted that mussells of the Rideau River have suffered a ‘double whammy’ from zebra mussells and the rapid and alternating water levels due to the canal locks. In 10 years, zebra mussells have spread throughout the Great Lakes smothering large beds

Lifestyle – At a recent natural history lecture in Almonte, the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists (MVFN) welcomed ‘malacologist’ Jacqueline Madill, Senior Research Assistant, Zoology, Research and Collections, Canadian Museum of Nature as guest speaker for the MVFN 2012-13 ‘Nature Beneath our Feet’ lectures. Madill’s subject was the important but little-understood or appreciated, ‘Native Fresh-water Mussells of the Ottawa Valley’ and she brought many several favourite specimens to the talk. About one-third of the world’s mussell species live in North America, with 55 species in Canada, of which 41 are found in Ontario. Madill reminded us first thing that we should not pick up mussells from the river bottom; each species inhabits only a specific water zone and they have limited locomotion. Not only that but freshwater mussells are considered one of the most endangered group of species in North America, with 67 per cent at risk! Mussells and clams belong to the family Mollusca (derived from Latin: soft), a very large group of soft-bodied animals that also includes the chitons, tooth shells, snails and slugs, oysters, and the nautili, squids and octopus. Look them up and be amazed! In abundance and diversity, they are second only to the arthropods (which includes insects), and were among the first creatures on earth. Mussells and clams range in size from barely visible to approximately 20-centimetres in length. Both are bivalves living in a box of two shells. Think of the blue mussells or clam chowder you last ate at the fish restaurant, said Madill. Two limey (mainly calcium carbonate) shells enclose their ‘bivalve’ body in a box that may be opened or closed for passage of water, and protection. This structure reflects the life of a sedentary animal (or couch potato), no head or limbs but a muscular foot that provides anchorage and infrequent locomotion. About the body is a mantle that produces the shell and aids in growth and reproduction. Within the body there are various organs that work as in our own. Most important are the gut and gills that act in feeding, as part of a giant filter. Madill and others assess mussel biodiversity and numbers in local lakes and rivers as part of their work. Hinge structure and other features are used for identification and often identification can be made just by the feel of the shell underwater. Mussell species may vary in numbers from zero to a few, to such density one cannot walk without treading on a shell. Here they earn the names ‘Heelsplitter’ and ‘Ouch’! Other more ‘happy as a clam’ individuals are rainbow, warty back and maple leaf. Eastern Elliptis is a very common species locally, and others such as a Cylindrical Papershell found in Quebec, had not been seen since the 1830s. Why mess with mussells? Well, we must agree that water is fundamental to life. Here in the Ottawa Valley, we are well supplied with five major rivers and many smaller streams, and so should have abundant clean water and excellent aquatic life. But if we are to sustain and improve our standard of living we must care for our waters. And the study and care for mussels and clams are part of that concern because these littleknown animals give many ecological benefits. Perhaps the most significant is their filtering; an individual may in-

Compassionate seniors are often vulnerable victims of fraud spreading further,” said Deputy Commissioner Scott Tod, OPP Investigations and Organized Crime. In 2012, the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre received 2,020 complaints of criminals using the “emergency scam” – sometimes referred to as the “grandparent scam” – in Canada. Of those, 506 people were identified as victims who reported a loss of more than $1.4 million. Police believe there are many more victims, but they are reluctant to report the crime, either out of embarrassment or not knowing how. In a typical “emergency scam”, the victim receives a phone call or email from someone claiming to be a friend or relative, like a grandchild, in distress. The caller or emailer goes on to indicate that they are in some kind of trouble,

such as being in a car crash, they need money for bail, or they are having trouble returning from a foreign country. The fraudster specifically asks that the victims to not tell other relatives. You may get a call from two people, one pretending to be your grandchild and the other pretending to be either a police officer or a lawyer. Your “grandchild” asks questions during the call, getting victims to volunteer personal information. Victims (often seniors) generally don’t verify the story until after their money has been sent through a wire transfer service or they have access to personal banking or credit card information to criminals. To guard against becoming a victim, police advise you to first check with another family member or trusted friend to

verify the information BEFORE sending money or providing credit card information by phone or e-mail. It is vitally important that the incident be reported every time it occurs, to allow police to investigate and find the perpetrators. “Scammers are counting on the fact that you will want to act quickly to help your loved ones in an emergency. Never send money to anyone you don’t know and trust. Verify the person’s identity before you take any steps to help,” said Inspector Paul Beesley, OPP Anti-Rackets Branch. If you or someone you know have been the victim of an “emergency scam”, contact your local police or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS). R0012245093_0808

EMC News – Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) remind seniors and vulnerable citizens that they are primary targets for scammers who prey upon their emotions and rob them of their money. Members of the OPP Anti-Rackets Branch say the “emergency scam” has been around for many years but it continues to reach across Ontario. The fact that seniors are hesitant to say ‘no’ or to hang up on someone on the phone makes them easy targets for criminals to access substantial sums of money. “Fraud in all of its forms costs Canadians extraordinary amounts of money. Increasing awareness is the first step toward reducing its devastating impact. Reporting the scam then allows police an opportunity to warn other people and minimize the chances of the scam

Support some paws at Laugh for LAWS Aug. 9, 16 and 17 By KELLY KENT kkent@perfprint.ca

Community – Anyone who owns a dog or cat knows that those furry friends can be an endless source of entertainment and happiness, so it is fitting that an upcoming fundraiser hopes to raise money for animals through laughter. On Friday, Aug. 9 at Love That Barr in Pakenham, a series of stand-up comedy shows in support of the Lanark Animal Welfare Society (LAWS) will begin. The shows, called Laugh for LAWS, will take place at different locations throughout Lanark County. “I’ve always been a lover of animals,” said Ken Strangway, founder of Lanark Laughs, the organization behind the events. “I heard that they don’t get a lot of

support so I thought I would so something to change that.” Lanark Laughs is a comedy business started by Strangway, who is a sheet metal worker by day, two years ago. They did their first Laugh for LAWS show last winter in Perth and raised over $800 for the shelter. “It was a huge success,” said Strangway. “It was a great night with a lot of laughs.” This time there will be a string of three shows: one in Pakenham, one in Perth and one in Almonte, respectively. The fun begins each night at 8 p.m. and costs $15. There will also be a 50/50 raffle draw, also to benefit LAWS, at each show. Tickets will be sold on site. Strangway says that all of the profits from the shows will be donated to LAWS, which works out to be about one third of the show’s total earnings after

the comedians have been paid and expenses have been accounted for. Each show will run for about two hours and will feature around six comedians, who are mostly from Ottawa with a few from Toronto, who will provide the laughs. “This is a great way for new and upcoming comics to get out there and do gigs,” said Strangway. Strangway said he expects the events to raise a lot of money for the shelter while being a ton of fun. “It’s a way to help out a good cause but still be able to enjoy a good show.” Show times: • Aug. 9, 8 p.m.: Love the Barr in Pakenham • Aug. 16, 8 p.m.: O’Reilly’s Pub in Perth • Aug. 17, 8 p.m.: JR’s in Almonte

Important tips to remember when hiring home care help EMC Lifestyle – Are you looking for home care help for you, an elderly parent or someone convalescing after a hospital stay? Asking some key questions of yourself and potential home care workers will help you find the right level support and the right provider. It will also save you time – and possibly risk. The first question you need to ask is “What do I need�? This will dictate the kind of support you require (and ultimately what you will pay for home care help). If you’re looking for someone to help around the house – housekeeping, shopping, assistance with meal planning/preparation, etc. – you won’t require a Personal Support Worker (PSW). If you or your loved one is largely independent and capable of directing care, your best option may be a housekeeper or homemaker. Where to find them? There are home cleaning busi-

nesses in many areas, but don’t overlook your local home support agency. Many home support agencies offer a home cleaning service on a fee-for-service basis. You can also find housekeeping providers on online homecare job boards such as www.homecareconnect.ca – a free Ontario job board specializing in homecare professionals. If your loved one has cognitive impairment or limited ability to make decisions or direct care, you’ll likely need a Personal Support Worker (PSW)—someone who has graduated with a PSW certificate from a recognized school. PSWs possess personal care and home support skills and know how to support independent living (helping an individual do things for themselves and not take over). A certified PSW will have education in cognitive impairment and mental health and have a better understanding into how to support a person with limited ability to direct their own sup-

port. Is the Personal Support Worker on the PSW registry? If you’ve decided that you will require a PSW, you’ll want to know that the PSW’s credentials have been accepted by Ontario’s PSW Registry. The PSW registry is a mandatory register for all PSWs employed by publicly-funded health care employers. It lists the names of workers who have completed a formal Ontario PSW program or who have current or recent employment providing personal support in Ontario. It is important to note that the PSW registry is not a regulatory college like the College of Nurses of Ontario. Being on the PSW registry means an individual has presented their credentials to the PSW registry and they’re been accepted, either because they work in the field or have a PSW certificate. The registry does not check a worker’s background for criminal convictions, nor is it proof that a worker has the skills you need.

It is up to you to decide whether or not a particular worker’s skills meet your needs. You will also have to make certain that the person is trustworthy. If you are uncertain about doing these checks, you may want to consider obtaining services through an established home support program. Go to www.ocsa.on.ca for more information on services in your area, or contact your local Community Care Access Centre (CCAC). Is the individual who they say they are? You should verify that the individual is who they say there are. Ask to see government-issued photo ID such as a passport, driver’s licence or Ontario photo card. Criminal record check Ensure the individual has received a clear criminal record check that’s been issued recently. Specifically, you want to see a clean and recent vulnerable sector screening. This is a special

type of criminal record check that also checks the abuse registry. Remember that this screening is valid as of the day it was issued, so you want to make certain it was recently done. References Ask for employer references and follow up with past employers. You need to ask the individual for permission to contact past employers and make it a condition of employment. Don’t consider applicants who refuse to allow you to contact previous employers. Be suspicious of those who tell you that their previous employers are no longer in business or have passed away. If possible, it’s best to get a referral from someone you trust. You still need to do your do due diligence in vetting and hiring the individual, but getting a referral from a trusted source can give you great assurance. Does the individual have liability insurance? It is appropriate to ask the person to carry liability insurance which

Know the signs of high blood pressure By DR. KATIE WESTSTRATE

the pressure remaining in the artery as the heart relaxes and fills with blood. If either of these is significantly elevated for three or more consecutive readings (taken on different days) – you have “hypertension.� While optimal blood pressure is less than 120/80mmHG, hypertension is typically not diagnosed until your reading is close to or over 140/90mmHg. In addition to increasing risk of heart attack and stroke, consistently elevated blood pressure is also related to dementia, sexual problems and to heart and kidney failure. The good news is that you can do something about it. A decrease of even 10mm systolic, or 5mm diastolic, as can occur with simple dietary modification, stress reduction and/or increases in physical activity, will reduce your risk of developing serious complications.

Lifestyle – Heart disease and stroke are two of the top three leading causes of death in Canada, yet one of the primary risk factors for both of these conditions is correctable! The problem is – you may not know you have it. Affecting more than one in five Canadians, hypertension, or high blood pressure typically sneaks up silently, leaving few signs or symptoms to indicate its presence. The Canadian Hypertension Society recommends that healthy adults have their blood pressure checked once a year to ensure it is staying within an optimal range. If additional risk factors are present, such as diabetes, obesity, smoking history or cardiovascular disease, you should monitor more frequently. Recommendations for Blood pressure is most commonly measured hypertension and heart health: in the brachial artery of the upper arm. Systolic blood pressure, the top number, represents the • Minimize processed, packaged, and ‘junk’ pressure generated by the heart to pump blood. Diastolic blood pressure, the bottom number, is foods, focusing instead on a whole foods diet

that is rich in fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains and healthy unsaturated fats (e.g. olive oil, fish, avocado, raw nuts and seeds) • Find ways to reduce and better manage stress such as talk therapy, exercise, yoga, journaling • Exercise regularly • Achieve and maintain a healthy weight for your height • Limit sodium intake and get plenty of potassium from fresh fruits and vegetables • Minimize or eliminate caffeine • Drink alcohol in moderation, if at all • Monitor your blood pressure regularly

SAFETY TIPS Heating: Generators should not be brought inside the home for any reason.

If you have hypertension, work with your primary care provider to find safe and effective ways to reduce your blood pressure and keep it in a healthy range.

would cover the individual in the event that you or another are injured while receiving support. A worker who works on his/ her own should also hold a WSIB clearance. This protects you should the worker be injured while supporting you or your family member. This is by no means an exhaustive list of questions for prospective home care providers. However, it does provide some important things to consider and is a good starting point for interviewing potential workers.

I prefer to use dealership units whenever possible because they more closely represent the trim and equipment level that you or I shop for, whereas press fleets are made up of fully loaded higher-end models. If you are interested in learning more about any of these vehicles, check out the manufacturers’ websites or better yet, call your local dealership and speak to one of their knowledgeable staff. It’s the ultimate in interactive information gathering. The Mazda6 I enjoyed for this review came from the friendly folks at Kanata Mazda in Ottawa. Mazda Canada launched their allnew flagship sedan, the Mazda6 at the Montreal Auto Show earlier this year. I had a chance recently to take one out for a brief run and wasn’t disappointed. To start, the 6 comes in three trim levels and the price tape begins at $24,495. My GT tester with the technology option package came in at $34,195 (prices before destination, dealer prep, licensing, taxes, or purchase incentives). For a main-stream mid-sized, mid$30K sedan it comes with everything you’d expect and a few things you wouldn’t, such as: 19” alloy wheels, HID headlamps with auto dimming and leveling, rain-sensing wipers, voiceactivated navigation with a 5.8” colour screen, power glass moon-roof, and a lane-departure warning system just to

cover the highlights. Of course the 6 is powered by Mazda’s SKYACTIV technology in the form of a 2.5L four-cylinder gasoline engine putting out 184 HP and 185 ft/lb of torque. Both manual and automatic transmission choices are six-speed and the auto box is available with paddle-shifters. Later this year, a 2.2 L turbo-charged diesel option will be available. Mazda started with a clean design slate for the 6 and exterior looks are bold and attractive. Inside, the cabin has the fit and finish not usually found in non-luxury brands. Quality seat and soft-trim materials welcome you into a great cabin with an easy-to-get-toknow instrument panel and control system. Road noise is limo-quiet and a well-tuned front and rear suspension combined with light alloy 19” wheels, kept things smooth but connected, even on summer road-construction surfaces. Online acceleration may not be V6 or turbo-charged-snappy, but highway legal road speeds were obtained quickly, passing was confident, and the transmission shifts spot on. Few drivers moving from a V6 power-plant into the 6 will miss the pain at

The 2014 Mazda6 is a serious player in the mid-sized sedan market, featuring a quiet ride, high level of comfort and performance. the pump that Mazda’s SKYACTIVE technology relieves. Mazdas boast a section leading 5.1 L/100 km highway and 7.6 L/100 km city (55.4 and 37.2 mpg). The EPA in the US rates the 6 at 48.0 mpg highway and 33.6 mpg city (converted to imperial gallons). The 6’s 62 L tank should deliver a 900 km range according to NRCan ratings (in a 50/50 mix of highway and city driving) and cost around $74 to fill at $1.30/L. A good portion of these results are due to Mazda using a regenerative-brake system which create electricity for storage in a very efficient capacitor. This allows the engine to be freed of parasitic belt-pulley loads as the capacitor can recharge the vehicle’s battery and power various electrical accessories. This system, which Mazda calls i-ELOOP

holds the promise of expanded use in other vehicles and their components. Safety is well enhanced in the 6 with Mazda’s ‘technology package’ which includes automatic high beam lamp control, lane departure and front object warning systems, radar cruise control, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and smart city brake support. These use various sensors in the front and rear of the vehicle to extend the driver’s sight-reach and improve reaction times and in the case of smart city braking, the 6 will apply the brakes for you to minimize the risk of colliding with a stopped or slower vehicle ahead in stop and start commuter driving. On the upkeep side, an air filter runs about $31, front brake pads and rotors are $172 and $104 respectively, and a

dealership oil change will cost around $60. The P225/45R19 tires my tester was equipped with are currently available from a small selection of tire-makers and range from $200 to $375 each. The mid-sized sedan market is a major one in our area and very crowded with able competitors. The launch of the 2014 Mazda6 shows Mazda is serious about being a player in this game. While the demographic for this type of vehicle can be wide and varied, one general statement that is allowable is that these buyers are experienced and looking for a higher level of comfort, performance, safety and driveability in their rides. The Mazda6 delivers. Yours in service, Brian Turner

Imagine talking to all the people in These plum crĂŞpes are taken to another level thanks the addition of cardamom and star anise.

Crêpes are good for breakfast or dessert Lifestyle – This is a great breakfast/brunch or dessert option. The plums are cooked with some star anise until just soft, and is accented by the cardamom in the whipped cream. Preparation time: One hour Cooking time: 30 minutes Serves: Makes eight crêpes Ingredients • 3 eggs, lightly beaten • 2 cups (500 mL) milk • 1/4 cup (50 mL) melted butter (approx) • 1 cup (250 mL) all-purpose flour • 1 tsp (5 mL) salt Plums • 1 tbsp (15 mL) vegetable oil • 6 Ontario Plums, pitted and quartered • 1/4 cup (50 mL) granulated sugar • 1 cup (250 mL) semidry white wine (such as Riesling) • 8 whole star anise pods • 1 lemon, zest and juice kept separate Whipped cream • 1 cup (250 mL) whipping cream (35 per cent) • 1/3 cup (75 mL) liquid honey • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) ground cardamom Preparation In large bowl, whisk eggs, milk, 1/4 cup (50 mL) melted butter, flour and salt until no lumps remain. Cover and refrigerate for at least two hours before making crêpes. Plums: In large heavy-bottomed skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Brown cut side of plums about two minutes per side; sprinkle with sugar. Add wine, star anise pods and lemon zest to skillet and bring to boil; reduce heat to medium. Cook until plums are soft, about four minutes. With slotted spoon, remove plums to heat-proof bowl. Bring syrup to boil; boil until reduced by half, five to six minutes. Add lemon juice to taste; pour over plums. Cover and let cool to room temperature. Crêpes: Heat eight-inch (20 cm) nonstick skillet over medium heat. Brush pan with melted butter. Pour in 1/3 cup (75 mL) batter into centre of pan, tilting pan to cover bottom thinly. Return to heat for about one minute or until bottom is lightly browned. Using spatula, flip crêpe over and brown other side. Remove to plate. Repeat with remaining batter, buttering pan if needed. (Refrigerate crêpes if not using immediately.) Whipped Cream: Using electric mixer, whip cream on medium until thickened slightly. Slowly add honey and cardamom, whipping until stiff peaks form, about two minutes. Keep refrigerated until ready to use. Remove star anise pods from plums. Place crêpes on cutting board. Divide plum mixture between 8 crêpes, spooning mixture onto one half. Fold crêpes over. Carefully transfer to plate; garnish with whipped cream, and a star anise pod.

1958 Chevrolet Cameo pickup on the road again! EMC Lifestyle - Dan Burdick of Leamington, Ontario, owns a beautifully restored 1958 Chevy Cameo Carrier pickup, one of only 1,405 built that year by GM. Dan’s truck spent its early life in New Mexico before coming to Ontario. He bought it 35 years ago and stored it until he was ready to give it a total restoration. The final result is absolutely spectacular. GM built the Cameo pickup only from 1955 to 1958, and the ’58 model is the only one with quad headlights. The Cameo was given fancy styling in keeping with the styling of the cars from that era, which sported flashy colours and lots of chrome. Dan started by removing the cab, then sandblasting and painting the frame. The body was taken to Redi-Strip in Detroit, then brought home for metal finishing, then taken to Pontiac, Michigan, to be re-stripped and electronic primed. The front clip and both doors came from the late classic car restorer Ron Fawcett in Whitby, Ontario, and these were stripped and repaired. The new pickup bed insides and front were purchased from Pros Pick in Ontario, as well as wood kit and stainless strips. All stainless was buffed, and the grille and front bumper were rechromed. The rear bumper ends and bumperettes were rebuilt. Mark Dimilo Auto Body in Leamington straightened the body and painted it a brilliant red with silver accents. Dan

reassembled the chassis, installed the cab, reassembled the box, relocated the fuel tank from inside the cab to under the bed, and put the fuel fill behind the left rear taillight assembly. A new tinted “Eye E Zerâ€? windshield went in, as well as side windows with power units. Dan installed a new front seat from a 2000 Chevy ½ ton pickup reupholstered by Brad at Apple Auto Glass in Leamington. Under the hood is a big block Chevy V8 with dual exhausts sending power through a 5-speed floor-mounted Borg Warner transmission to the 10-bolt Positraction rear end. The steering wheel is original and is mated to a Cadillac steering column, giving Dan tilt and telescopic steering. The Dakota Digital Gauges are mounted in the original speedometer area, leaving the dash looking just the same as it did 55 years ago.

Script, Music & Lyrics by A.J. Harbison and Wayne Robert Scott Directed by Lynda Daniluk

Pollyanna’s cold and demanding Aunt Polly is not used to the kind of misadventures that Pollyanna gets into -- including her odd way of befriending total strangers with her infectious smile. Even when faced with adversity, Pollyannna has a secret weapon: a special legacy left to her by her father. Soon the entire town is playing an unusual game that Pollyanna lives by. Inspired by the classic best selling 1913 novel by Eleanor Porter, this musical features rag time tunes and a patriotic medley, taking audiences back to this charming period in America’s history.

A glimpse at Stewart Park Festival from the inside over the years have commented on the amazing â&#x20AC;&#x153;good vibeâ&#x20AC;? that seems prevalent at SPF when compared to many other festivals. Some of it, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure, is the location with the many shade trees in a beautiful park with the river flowing through. To look out across the park and observe a sea of volunteer shirts,

each doing their bit to make the festival mechanism function, is something to behold. There is a pride that puts a smile on most their volunteering faces just being glad to help out. Some come and do just their shifts while others are there for the duration of the weekend, willing to do whatever is needed, even running home to get something we may needâ&#x20AC;Ś cutlery for backstage, a forgotten drum mat, a music stand. I am blessed to every year see a core of people who show up to help get things set up and keep them running. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been doing it for so many years, they know what goes where or just needs doing and they do it. That good vibe extends to the audience as well. A group of campers from Camp

Merrywood, most in wheelchairs visited the festival and were in the artisan area. A good Samaritan â&#x20AC;&#x153;paid it forwardâ&#x20AC;? to allow several of the girls to get henna tattoos and, while this was going on, it was found out one of them had a birthday that day so the jeweller in the booth next gifted the â&#x20AC;&#x153;birthday girlâ&#x20AC;? a pair of custom made earrings. Nice touch. One thing I noticed this year was the demographic of those helping out. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure the average age was near 50 and over. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an area we need to work on to try and get younger people involved to keep this wonderful happening alive every year. It was gratifying to see one family with teenage children take on an area together, providing set up,

The parents worked with their kids to show how to give back to their community, how and what responsibilities to take on, involving their friends so they too can feel the pride of accomplishing tasks and, above all, feeling the fun of being involved. Those kids already have stated they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait until next year. What a great way to establish lifelong bonds with your kids. My family have all grown up involved with the festival.

Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Some people spend weekends at NASCAR events, horse shows, golf tournaments, hockey or ball tournaments, each with their own excitements, but, there is something incredibly intriguing about the magic seen in and around a community summer music festival. Friends and families gather to attend the annual event, year after year. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been the onsite coordinator of Perthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Stewart Park Festival for the past 23 years and, having just packed up this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event, wanted to share some observations from behind the scenes. For those attending a summer festival, most are unaware of, other than shear size, the subtle differences between â&#x20AC;&#x153;pay festivalsâ&#x20AC;? like Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bluesfest and free, community, not for profit festivals like Stewart Park Festival (SPF). You arrive, plunk your chair down in a preferred location, take a seat and start listening. Other than size of the event, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always a stage or two, sound systems, food and artisan areas and some great live music. What people are unaware of is how all of what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re enjoying got put together. Both take lots of planning throughout the year. Where pay festivals often have paid staff to coordinate specific areas and budgets to purchase services from a myriad of companies who provide the infrastructure, community festivals rely on volunteers who work with their respective committees to make important activities happen. Committees look after areas such as sponsorship, kids area, kids and adult workshops, artisan and food areas, food for volunteers and musicians; all to keep costs to a minimum yet providing a quality, safe, entertaining festival that must comply with more and more legislation, insurance company expectations, bylaws, etc. SPF is run under the Perth BIA and in partnership with the supportive Town of Perth, so we are able to keep costs down but there are ever increasing costs to keep the festival â&#x20AC;&#x153;freeâ&#x20AC;?. Volunteers meet year round, beg, borrow, rope in friends and family, take holidays and give thousands of hours of volunteer time to make it happen. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an amazing scene full of a wonderfully zany crew. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s some of what you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see. Though it just looks like a stage cover set up in the park by a company, much planning must go on ahead of time to make sure it gets set up in the right place to allow enough space for speaker towers avoiding the many trees, in a locale that will not negatively affect the huge power lines buried under the park when hammering in securing tent pegs. People donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see how uneven the ground where the stage goes yet, thanks to a volunteer, his transit and a wonderful town crew, much time with levelling feet on the stage under structure, we end up with a level, secure stage. Musicians need a place to park near the stage which we provide. Their instruments need to get from vehicles to main stage and are often transported back and forth between there and the acoustic workshop stage. Trailers are moved in backstage for an office and change rooms. More than 100 volunteers join in to do their part to make it all work, just like the needed tasks listed and a million others. Its partnerships with community businesses who lend their spaces and expertise to make it happen, often free of charge or at reduced rates. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so proud to be part of such a giving community. Musicians and audience members

MUSICAL From page 29

The friendships built are supportive and ongoing, no matter the age. Another observation was throughout the broad styles of music, all the wonderful musicians who are on their way up or down the popularity chain of their music discipline, there was a welcome lack of crazy egos that can create havoc sometimes. The Wendy Laut Stage offers two days of different musical gatherings of musicians who would not normally play together, often with magical results. One I caught a bit of was the sweet, powerful vocals of Laura Smith, veteran kids performer Fred Penner and the a cappella four-man vocal group Cadence, all joining in together. Laura Smith later played the main stage, backed by Jamie Campbell, Terry Tufts and Kathryn Briggs and it was incredibly powerful to see most of the audience simultaneously rise to their feet together for a standing ovation. The power of music was exemplified as myself and the emcee, two good sized men were taking in Laura’s show side stage with tears streaming down our faces. Her new CD Everything is Moving, sold out at the CD tent quickly. (I cannot recommend this disc more highly. It’s a wonderful

piece of work). As I paused the odd time it was gratifying to see all our hard work being enjoyed as I looked out at the park full of people at both stages, the families and their kids playing around the river and in the kids area, people picnicking and grooving to the tunes. It’s good for our souls to stop sometimes and just listen. Though we had to stop Friday’s show at 4 p.m. due to tornado warnings, it was wonderful to see the after hours venues full that night. A major thank you goes to all the generous sponsors who donated funds, the Town of Perth, (especially Karen Fox), for their support, the SPF board who work year round, the more than 100 volunteers, the great musicians who grace our stage and of course the audience, more than half from out of town who come to enjoy the weekend, hopefully donate generously and share the good vibes with others. Planning is already underway for the 24th annual Stewart Park Festival in 2014. I hope you’ll join us in helping bring such a wonderful spirit to our wee town. Upcoming event Saturday, Aug. 17: Westport Music Festival. Admission is free.

Washington and Wahlberg team up in fun buddy-cop film

MARK HASKINS

EMC Arts - I love a slick buddycop film. The kind of gritty crime story where your two heroes have everything and everyone against them, and all they have are their wits, their guns and a few clever one-liners. 2 Guns is just that kind of film. Bobby (Denzel Washington) and Stig (Mark Wahlberg) open things up with what looks like a bank robbery. Earlier they made a deal with a Mexican drug lord named Papi Greco (Edward James Olmos). Papi backed out of the deal so the two figure they can get something back by robbing Papi's bank. What neither Bobby nor Stig realize is that both of them are working undercover. Bobby is undercover DEA, and Stig is working for naval intelligence. The other thing neither one realizes is that it isn’t Papi's bank. It is the CIA's. Someone set Bobby and Stig up to rob an illegal CIA slush fund. Both become wanted men abandoned and betrayed by their own people. The only way out is to work together to figure out who set them up. Of course by that point you almost

zel Washington and Mark Wahlberg. Washington can play anything, is good in anything, and makes whatever movie he's in better. Wahlberg is a great action hero and good actor in his own right. The two together are buddy cop magic. The play between them alone is worth the price of admis-

sion. The rest of the cast isn't hurting the film either. Paula Patton adds some sizzle to the screen, James Marsden does a nice turn as a rotten guy, and Edward James Olmos nails the ruthless Mexican drug lord. Then there's Bill Paxton. Pax-

ton plays Earl the CIA agent messing with everyone, and I must say Paxton has a real knack for playing truly nasty villains. 2 Guns is a summer time gem. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

My Take

feel sorry for the villains. There's a real cathartic pleasure in watching two charismatic heroes with nothing to lose, and who refuse to let the law get in the way of what's right, do what needs to be done. 2 Guns has that along with some betrayal, corruption, and a double cross or two. Throw in a few gun fights, a little sex appeal, and the kind of sleazy villains that make your skin crawl, and you have a great summer flick. With all that going for 2 Guns, there are two things that really stand out. One is the pace of the film. It isn’t a non-stop gun fight or car chase which is kind of unusual for a summer movie. Instead director Kormakur takes the time to draw the audience into this seedy and corrupt world. He builds up the story and the characters and intersperses the action almost sparingly which serves to make it more exciting. The second thing is the team of Den-

Adventurous family paddles through Burritts Rapids By JENNIFER WESTENDORP jwestendorp@perfprint.ca

News – Adventure is the name of the game for the MacDonald family. Since setting out in March 2007, they have encountered incredible beauty, terrifying weather and the joy of becoming parents. It all started over a decade ago, when Pam and Geoff were friends. They began talking about taking a canoe trip together. “We wanted to go from the mountains to Hudson’s Bay,” said Geoff. “Initially, we thought of that and then we started talking about doing a trip across Canada.” Geoff explained that Pam wasn’t a canoe fanatic like himself when they met, but they did share an interest in exploring the wilderness. “I wanted to go on an adventure,” said Pam. Adventure was what she got when during one of their outings together, Pam looked at Geoff and realized it was more than just friendship she felt for her paddling partner. The pair began dating in 2003 and got married three years later, in 2006. When Pam and Geoff moved in together, maps of Canada laid scattered about their home. They began saving money for the trip and decided to put their careers on hold just before getting married. “When we got married, we travelled all around Europe,” said Pam. “We had quit our jobs by then, so we had the time. We have friends and family in Europe, so the honeymoon ended up being eight weeks long.” When Pam and Geoff returned from their honeymoon, they hoped to set out on their trip across Canada. However, their dry suits weren’t ready yet, so they had to wait until March. Along the way, Pam and Geoff welcomed their first son Jude, who is now three years old. He began canoeing with his parents at the tender age of eight months and is now on his fourth season of the trip. Jude plays the role of vehicle identifier, tent helper and goldfish cracker con-

noisseur. Jude became a big brother at the beginning of December 2012. Rane, who is eight months old, has been canoeing for one season. He plays the role of drool factory, schedule dictator and kitchen utensil helper. “It’s hard to say what they have learned,” said Geoff. “Rane learned how to cut teeth in a canoe. Five teeth have come in during this season. Jude definitely has a sense of adventure. He likes to know where we are on the map. He’s developing a sense of place. We hope this trip will rub off on them.” The family spends between seven and eight hours a day on the water. “It depends on the weather,” said Pam. “We might stop at a beach to play for an hour or go to a restaurant to eat.” Pam and Geoff had differing accounts of the worst weather they’ve run into while canoeing. Geoff said it was a blizzard on the Fraser River, during which a foot of snow fell. “We don’t paddle in November anymore,” said Geoff. “Canoeing in it wasn’t so bad, but camping kind of sucked.” Pam opted for an intense thunderstorm that occurred when they went through Saskatchewan. “We found a field to camp in and just got into the tent when the full force of the storm hit,” said Pam. “The wind blew the tent down and the rain was coming in through the vents. There was so much lightning you could read by it. Jude got through it. Rain was hitting him, so he climbed further into the corner.” The couple also disagreed on the most beautiful place they’ve seen during the trip. “We portaged over the continental divide,” said Geoff. “It was amazing.” Pam said Boxer Reach was the most breathtaking because the mountains come right out of the ocean. “Every place has its own kind of beauty,” said Pam. “Alberta has the badlands. Saskatchewan has its sunsets.” Pam and Geoff have spent the past six years experiencing the entire country. They said they’ve seen all kinds of wildlife, including an eagle eating baby loons and a musky trying to eat a duck-

The couple said they had to spend the night in a bowling alley once, when they visited a community with a high population of grizzly bears. “The residents wouldn’t let us sleep outside,” said Pam. “We spent the night in the bowling alley. How could you not bowl a few lanes? It was really fun. There were four grizzly bears sitting in the parking lot outside all night.” The next morning, they yelled themselves hoarse walking back to the canoe. “You don’t want to surprise a sow with cubs,” said Pam.

Canada adventure? “Maybe if Jude and Rane want to paddle us back,” said Geoff. “Maybe in a couple decades, when our kids have to change our diapers.” The couple said they would continue to take canoe trips all their lives, but maybe not to the extent of this trip. Pam said that even though they’ve been canoeing across Canada for the past six summers, it still feels like they rushed through it. “There’s never going to be an end to it,” said Pam.

The MacDonald family passed through Burritts Rapids on July 26 and stopped off in Merrickville to get some groceries, where they ran into Mayor Doug Struthers. “The Rideau is so beautiful,” said Pam. “I love looking at stone houses.” The family is currently in Ottawa, taking a brief reprieve to catch up on veterinary appointments for their dog Taq, who also travels with them, and some much needed rest. The last leg of their journey is under way, with their final stop in Quebec City. The question stands – would the MacDonalds embark on another cross

We have kids in group home settings right now and we want to see them in family settings.” Jonkman said that foster families provide more security for children, now and down the road, than living in a group home. “It’s the potential for connections later on in life that is the most critical, not only for the kids we have in our care, but for everyone involved,” said Allan Hogan, Executive Director for FCSLLG. Jonkman said that the FCSLLG is down to two operating group homes in Lanark, Leeds and Grenville. She said the hope is to eliminate the need for group homes altogether. “Is it realistic?” said Jonkman. “Well, why not shoot for the moon?” Hogan said the group homes in Lanark, Leeds and Grenville cater to children outside of the FCSLLG’s jurisdiction as well, so it would be impossible to say how many kids from the community are currently living in a group home setting. Jonkman said the current number of

children in the FCSLLG’s care is 264. “Some of those kids would have come through our doors many years ago,” said Jonkman. She said there are currently 126 foster parents in Lanark, Leeds ad Grenville. “I would say we need foster parents from every walk of life, single, married, young and old. “They need to have some patience and love children.” Kim Morrow, Director of Service for FCSLLG, said that people interested in becoming foster parents need to be prepared and open to learning. “It usually turns out to not be what they expected,” said Morrow. The children currently being cared for by the FCSLLG range from babies to teenagers, so most families in the area could find an appropriate fit that would suit their lifestyle. Morrow explained that two years ago, the Lanark CAS amalgamated with the Smiths Falls agency, which is why the organization now encompasses Lanark, Leeds and Grenville. “We have joined the two agencies and the two groups of foster parents have merged,” said Morrow. “We are in the process of merging all our processes, in terms of how we work with foster parents.” Morrow explained that each agency had a different way of working with foster parents and now the united agencies are working towards becoming synonymous. “We’re currently in the process of doing that,” said Morrow. “The whole point of the amalgamation was to develop more capacity. We

have more flexibility when it comes to structuring our organization.” Morrow said there are two resource teams that serve foster parents within the community. “Our team focuses primarily on the Lanark area and the other focuses on Leeds and Grenville,” said Morrow. Hogan said the amalgamation would be beneficial to the community the organization serves. Jonkman noted the goal is to find a permanent establishment for every child in their care, whether that be adoption or returning to their natural families. “We do see foster care as temporary,” said Jonkman. “That doesn’t mean that some foster parents don’t end up adopting kids.” Hogan said that any decision made is always in the child’s best interest. The organization requires all new foster parents to take part in a nine week course, which entails a three-hour commitment each week. “It prepares them for what they may face,” said Jonkman. “Then they go through a home study process as well, which involves interviews with all the members of family who live in the home.” Morrow said it is important to understand who people are as a family, in order to best match a child with them. The easiest way to get involved with foster parenting is to call either the Leeds Grenville office at (613)-498-2100 or the Lanark office at (613)-264-9991. There is also a toll free number people can call, 1-855-667-2726, which will connect them to any of the Children’s Aid Society offices.

GARDENER’S CORNER

Poison Parsnip

our 20th Season

Celebrating

You can dig it, mow it off or take it down with a whipper snipper but I wouldn’t recommend any of those tactics unless you have a haz-mat suit. Use Round-up, acetic acid or even a propane torch and still wear rubber gloves a long sleeve shirt and pants. Goggles couldn’t hurt. I know this sounds alarmist but as I’ve said, this is not a weed to be taken lightly. One of the ladies that came to our garden tour showed me her rash. Her whole arm was bright red and covered with blisters. She told me that it was very painful. If you think you may have been exposed to the sap, rinse the affected area with warm water and dish detergent as soon as possible. DO NOT SCRUB!! By scrubbing you run the risk of driving the oils into your skin. The last thing I want to do is discourage anyone from enjoying their garden. Get out and do your “walkies” . There are thousands of plants that bring so much pleasure. There are a few that will bite you. Stinging Nettle comes to mind. Know what you’re looking for and be careful. There is a wealth of information online and the link to the Health Unit will get you started. http://www.healthunit.org/hazards/ dangerousweeds.html If you have any gardening questions, contact us at the link below. info@floraldesignlandscaping.com Submitted by Gord Knights

The boss called this afternoon and suggested this column. His sister is a victim. In the last month I have encountered three people that have come out on the losing end after contact with wild parsnip (Pastinaca sativa). This is a weed not to be taken lightly. Because of the limited space here I have not included a photo of the plant but take a minute and type “poison parsnip” into Google images. Make sure you can recognize this plant !! It bears a remarkable resemblance to Dill. The following is a quote from the Leeds Grenville District Health unit. I’ve listed a link to the site at the bottom of the page. “Wild Parsnip plants have chemicals called psoralens (more precisely, furocoumarins) that cause phyto-photodermatitis: an interaction between plants (phyto) and light (photo) that induce skin (derm) inflammation (itis). Once the furocoumarins are absorbed by the skin, they are energized by UV light on both sunny and cloudy days. They then bind to DNA and cell membranes, destroying cells and skin.” The infection looks very similar to poison ivy, watery blisters and a red rash but it can cause serious scarring and can leave your skin super sensitive to UV light for years. If you get any sap in your eyes, get to a hospital immediately. This weed grows in every region of Canada and even as far north as Alaska. Typically it grows along roadsides but conditions over the last few years have been perfect for explosive growth. So what do you do if you find it on your property?

ing Legacy’ is now available for purchase. “I’m glad it’s finally out there,” said Sue Higgins, the CEO of the NGPL. “It was an incredible amount of work.” The introductory section of the book contains photographs from the Room to Read campaign. The second section contains the text and photos supplied by donors. The final section contains historical pictures of some of the institutions and special events that would have been part of these peoples’ lives, such as schools, churches and community groups. The book will also become part of the library’s local history collection as well as that of the local archives. “It’s so rewarding,” said Higgins. The Room to Read campaign brought in roughly $1 million, which went towards the construction of the beautiful new library in downtown Kemptville. The new building caters to between 8,000 and 10,000 residents each month. The eye-catching cover photo for the book was taken by Krista George on the day the library opened.

News – As if providing access to knowledge isn’t enough, volunteers and staff members of the North Grenville Public Library have put together a historic compilation of their own. ‘The Lasting Legacy’ is a unique project, which was dreamed up by Jean Kilfoyle and her brother, Bill. “We were just chatting and we thought maybe we could write letters to people who had moved away from North Grenville and ask them to donate money to the library in memory of their parents,” said Kilfoyle. Out of this conversation grew the idea for ‘The Lasting Legacy’ project, which was part of the Room to Read fundraising campaign. Library staff and volunteers have just completed the book, entitled ‘The Lasting Legacy,’ which is a compilation of photos and texts depicting residents and past residents who made a donation to the library. “We were pleasantly surprised,” said Roberta Russell, an employee of the NGPL. “We

had no idea it would be so successful. There has been a high level of interest.” Russell said one of the interesting things for her is running into people who are either in the book or know people in the book. “Looking through it brings back memories for people,” said Russell. She said it was amazing how the community got behind the library. “A huge portion of the community donated what they could,” said Russell. ‘The Lasting Legacy’ contains various stories and anecdotes about North Grenville, which will amuse residents and visitors alike. All contributions to ‘The Lasting Legacy’ project are acknowledged in both a donor book and a virtual donor wall, which features the names of the individuals being remembered or honored and the names of those who have donated to the Room to Read campaign in their honor. “A lot of people will buy it even if they’re not in it because it’s a piece of history,” said Kilfoyle.

LOCAL NEWS PIPELINE From page K1

They had to close down 45 kilometers of the river for years as a result of the spill. “Imagine having to close down the Rideau Canal system from Kemptville to Bank Street in Ottawa for years,” said Angus. Chris Weissflog, another member of the SNG, said that North Grenville will only be subject to a few kilometers of the proposed pipeline, but the part it will affect flows underneath the Rideau River. “The pipe will affect a very sensitive area in our community,” said Weissflog. “If it breaks in that section, the river will spread the material and make it impossible to contain. It will have an extreme impact on the environment.” Angus said that two pipelines break every day in Canada. “Most of these incidents aren’t reported,” he claimed. Angus said there is absolutely no benefit to North Grenville, as there will be no job cre-

ation. “The biggest benefit to the North Grenville economy would be if a break occurs and a first response team decides to stay in one of the motels and eat out at a few local restaurants,” he said. Angus said the dilbit will be transported through North Grenville, all the way to Saint John, New Brunswick and from there shipped overseas. “The whole idea is to become oil independent and yet they’re shipping it overseas,” said Weissflog. Angus said that up until a year-and-a-half ago, a citizens group could approach the National Energy Board with their concerns. He said the government decided that this caused too much delay, so the rules were changed. According to Angus, if one wishes to make a complaint about a proposed pipeline project, one must fill out a complex form and submit it to get permission to write a letter voicing one’s concerns. “Most of these are rejected,” said Angus. “You have to prove you will be directly affect-

ed by the pipeline, such as if it was going right through your basement.” Angus and Weissflog said the best way to combat the pipeline going through North Grenville is by contacting all levels of government and voicing concerns. The proposed pipeline will transport more than 1.1 million barrels of dilbit through North Grenville every day. North Grenville Mayor David Gordon said further discussion is needed, in order to decide on the best and safest method for the transportation of such materials. “We have to focus on the safest way to transport the materials,” he said. Gordon noted that the health and safety of North Grenville residents is his main concern. “If the pipeline is the safest method, then so be it,” said Gordon. The mayor said he would love to look at alternative sources of energy, but at this point in time, society relies on oil. “It’s the chicken and the egg argument, which comes first?” said Gordon. “You need to have the source to get the energy.”

NGDHS honours devoted music teacher highlight was punctuated with visits to Pier 21, Canada’s immigration headquarters from 19281971, as well as a tour of the historic Halifax harbour. Since their return from their inaugural tour, big baNG and bigger baNG have been very busy performing their unique musical sound at various events in North Grenville. They could be heard far and wide at the Dandelion Festival. Also, the groups recently pitched in to help the NGDHS charity, Sarah’s Hope, to raise money in its continuing efforts to aid the Moving Mountains Trust and distribute aid to Gatwe, which is a village in Kenya. Even the rain couldn’t dampen the sound of this group. They found the loading dock at the Ferguson Forestry Centre provided respite from the rain during the UCDSB’s recent Champions for Kids event. Immediately afterwards, the bands trooped through the rain to the North Grenville Municipal Centre parking lot to perform for the hardiest of the Big Brothers, Big Sisters Ribfest fans. The students haven’t done this alone. Lance has provided amazing

leadership, musical adventures and a real sense of belonging to these students. They worked very hard at each of their performances, with big smiles on their faces all the while, even in the rain. Lance gives much of her own time helping to raise much needed funds for the drummers by offering adult African drumming lessons to the general public in North Grenville. Music is a family affair for the Lances. Her husband Bob, known as Mr. Bob, is always there to lend a hand moving instruments. You will often see her grandchildren out enjoying the performances. A year end BBQ was held on July 20, 2013, which was attended by 80 people, to show Lance how much her efforts are appreciated. She was presented with a large poster of the NGDHS musicians at the Atlantic Festival of Music in Halifax and a 90 page, 340 image hard cover photo book depicting the events throughout the year. When you see the unique colourful uniforms of bigger baNG around Eastern Ontario, you’ll see Lance at the helm with her own drum leading the way.

Little did the students know that their silver and gold standings at Brockville’s Music Festival were just the beginning. Shortly after competing in Brockville this past spring, two busloads of students from NGDHS set out for Halifax and the Atlantic Festival of Music, where they would compete against schools from across the Maritimes and Northeastern United States. Intermediate Music teacher Heather Lance, along with VP David Morrison and high school music teacher Clare Sadler, organized five music groups for this four-day journey. The trip, initiated by Lance, included her Intermediate African Drummers, High School African Drummers, Intermediate Concert Band, Mr. Morrison’s Intermediate Jazz Band, and Mrs. Sadler’s High School Concert Band. Each of these groups came home with an award - one bronze, three silvers and one gold. This musical

Local author publishes fourth book By JENNIFER WESTENDORP

®

Photo by Jennifer Westendorp

Michael McCann holds up his latest endeavour, entitled ‘The Fregoli Delusion,’ which is a crime fiction novel. McCann is an independent author from Oxford Station, who has so far published four books. McCann’s interest in crime fiction stems from his experience working in customs, which he did for 15 years. “About 25 years ago, I worked full-time writing short stories,” said McCann. “Then my son was born and I had to put writing aside to earn a salary.” McCann’s interest in writing never dwindled and he waited patiently for the day he could take up his pen again. He said he wouldn’t have been able to write novels in his mid-twenties because he lacked the life experiences that play such a huge role in crafting characters and plots. “By the time I left customs, I was a training consultants, which gave me access to a gold mine of material, including interview techniques and arrest procedures,” said McCann. McCann also worked as an editor for a publishing company for a couple years, which taught him a lot about the publishing and editing processes. “Everything I’ve done up till now has led to this,” said McCann. “It’s a learning process.” Before starting work on a manuscript, McCann makes an outline, which includes

the basic plot elements and character backgrounds. “It takes me about a year to complete a manuscript,” said McCann. McCann said ‘The Fregoli Delusion’ took a little longer than usual to finish because of the complexity of the psychological research. ‘The Fregoli Delusion’ is just another notch in McCann’s belt after publishing ‘The Ghost Man,’ ‘Blood Passage’ and ‘Marcie’s Murder.’ McCann is nearing completion of his fifth book, ‘The Rainy Day Killer,’ which is about a serial killer. He has also begun outlining the manuscript for his sixth book, which is a supernatural thriller. “I feel like a dog that’s been let off its chain,” said McCann. “Where am I going to run next?” All of McCann’s books can be purchased at Brewed Awakenings in Kemptville. On Aug. 17, he will be doing a book signing for ‘The Fregoli Delusion’ at the coffee shop, between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. “I love getting to meet all my readers personally,” said McCann. “It’s something I wouldn’t trade for the world.”

Arts – Michael McCann has dreamt of being an author since he was a kid. “It’s like a magic power,” he said. “You can capture people’s attention and hold it.” ‘The Fregoli Delusion’ is his fourth novel to date. “It’s a blast,” said McCann. “There is nothing I would rather be doing. The feeling I get when I wake up in the morning and I’m halfway through a manuscript, I love it.” McCann is an independent author, so he handles the design, marketing and production himself. “When I finished my first manuscript, I started to send it out to publishers, but I didn’t get anywhere,” said McCann. “Publishers don’t take on unsolicited manuscripts anymore, so you have to go through an agent. After two years of trying to find an agent, I decided I wasn’t getting and younger and didn’t want to wait any longer.” McCann and his wife started their own company called The Plaid Raccoon Press, which publishes all his novels. “When I published my first book, I didn’t know what to do in terms of marketing,” said McCann. “So when I went to publish my second book, I did some research on what other authors did to promote themselves and made a marketing model for myself.” McCann said that independent publishing is a phenomenon, which many authors take advantage of to ensure free artistic range. “What’s nice about being an independent author is you don’t get told what to write,” said McCann. ‘The Fregoli Delusion’ is the story of the ultimate unreliable witness. The sub-genre of the book is police procedural, which means the plot is reasonably realistic. A billionaire is murdered on a bike path in an affluent part of the city. The investigation gets complicated when the two detectives, Donaghue and Stainer, realize the only eye witness suffers from fregoli, which is a form of psychotic delusion that makes the person think an individual is constantly persecuting them. With regards to the case, the eye witness identifies the person he believes to be persecuting him as the killer. The detectives can’t rely on his testimony and must find some other way to identify the killer.

KYC hosts newsletter naming contest jwestendorp@perfprint.ca

News – The Kemptville Youth Centre is making changes. “We’re in the process of revamping all our stuff,” said Andrew MacLean, program coordinator for the KYC. MacLean said the process began a few months ago with the re-design of the KYC website. A volunteer with a background in marketing, by the name of Julie Mercier, came on board and presented a huge marketing plan to the KYC. “The plan was to begin streamlining our brand to make it more recognizable,” said MacLean. MacLean said the revitalized newsletter is a good way to really sell the KYC brand. “The way things were put together before, the website didn’t look like our newsletter,” said MacLean. “People wouldn’t have known it was from the same organization.” MacLean said executing the marketing plan will bump up the professionalism of the KYC. “We’ve been around for 20 years,” said MacLean. “We want to go to the next step.” MacLean said that North Grenville is growing in leaps and bounds and the KYC wants to grow with it. The launch of the re-designed website was the jump off point for the marketing initiative. “We plan on basing a lot of our stuff off the design of the new website,” said MacLean. The old newsletter was released bi-monthly and carried the heading ‘Youth in Action.’ It was a bulky publication and therefore difficult to distribute electronically. The revamped newsletter is much more streamline and professional. “More thought went into it,” said MacLean. “It’s a better way to present information.” The newsletter is available online, on the KYC website, and in hard copy at various public venues

where youth are present, such as the North Grenville Municipal Centre and schools. Residents can also subscribe to the newsletter by contacting the KYC Director Robin Heald. The KYC is going to focus on electronic distribution of the newsletter to save paper and money. MacLean said it’s a huge advantage having such a great printing partner in M5 Digital, which handles all the KYC publishing needs for free. “They save us thousands of dollars every year,” said MacLean. MacLean said that none of the brand revitalization process would have been possible without Mercier’s help. “We really lucked out when she decided to come on board,” said MacLean. “She has a very useful skill set.” MacLean said that Mercier came in at the right time, when the KYC decided to market themselves as more than just a big living room for teenagers. “What makes it fantastic is that she came here wanting to take on a big workload,” said MacLean. MacLean said the KYC was a very quiet functional organization before and is now trying to get out there more for people to see. MacLean said there are between 1600 and 2000 youth in North Grenville. Last year, the KYC catered to nearly a quarter of the youth population, with 500 of them coming through the centre. “The community is growing and the number of youth is going to grow with it,” said MacLean. “We need to market ourselves better to get more youth in here.” The revamped newsletter contains news items, Photo by JENNIFER WESTENDORP upcoming events, programming news and testimoFrom left, Alex Smith and Andrew MacLean show off the online version of the revamped nials.

TAKE NOTICE that the Council of the Corporation of the Village of Merrickville-Wolford will hold a public meeting on the 9th day of September, 2013 at 7:30 PM, in the Council Chambers at 317 Brock Street East, to consider a proposed Zoning By-law Amendment under Section 34 of the Planning Act, RSO 1990, as amended. TAKE NOTICE that if a person or public body does not make oral or written submissions at a public meeting or make written submissions to the Village of Merrickville-Wolford before the proposed Zoning By-law Amendment is passed, the person or public body is not entitled to appeal the decision of the Council of the Village of Merrickville-Wolford to the Ontario Municipal Board. AND TAKE NOTICE that if a person or public body does not make oral or written submissions at a public meeting or make written submissions to the Village of Merrickville-Wolford before the proposed Zoning Bylaw Amendment is passed, the person or public body may not be added as a party to the Hearing of an appeal before the Ontario Municipal Board unless, in the opinion of the Board, there are reasonable grounds to add the person or public body as a party. ANY PERSON may attend the Public Meeting and/or make written or verbal representation either in support of or in opposition to the proposed Zoning By-law Amendment. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION relating to the proposed Zoning By-law Amendment is available for inspection during normal office hours at the Clerk’s Office at 317 Brock Street West. DATED AT THE VILLAGE OF MERRICKVILLE-WOLFORD, THIS 25th DAY OF JULY, 2013. ______________________ Jill Eagle, CAO/Clerk Village of Merrickville-Wolford 269-4791

EXPLANATORY NOTE The Village of Merrickville-Wolford is preparing an OFFICE CONSOLIDATION of the comprehensive Zoning By-law. The OFFICE CONSOLIDATION is meant to aid users of the Zoning By-law by incorporating all of the Amendments which have been passed since the Zoning By-law came into effect in 2008. During the preparation of the OFFICE CONSOLIDATION, a number of “housekeeping” revisions to the Zoning By-law were identified as being needed in order to make the Zoning By-law fully consistent. These revisions include the following: 1. “Retirement Home” was previously added to the Zoning By-law as a defined use which was permitted in the General Commercial-Exception (C1-4) Zone. As a consequence, “Retirement Home” needs to be added as a permitted use in the Residential Type 3 (R3) and the Institutional (I) Zones where similar uses such as “Nursing Home” and “Home for the Aged” are also permitted. 2. “Retirement Home” also needs to be added to the Zone Provisions table in the Residential Type 3 (R3) Zone. 3. “Private School” was previously added to the Zoning By-law as a defined use and was permitted in the General Commercial (C1) and Institutional (I) Zones. As a consequence, the Institutional (I) Zone needs to be further revised to change the permitted “School” use to “Public School” in order to distinguish between public and private schools. 4. Various typographical errors throughout the Zoning By-law are also to be corrected. The proposed Zoning By-law Amendment does not affect any specific lands in the Village. Rather, it is a technical “housekeeping” amendment to clarify the meaning of the Zoning By-law.

LOCAL NEWS

By LAURA MUELLER and JOE LOFARO laura.mueller@metroland.com joe.lofaro@metronews.ca News - Melissa Richmondâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s accused killer and her husband of eight years was set to appear in court Tuesday by video teleconference on a charge of first-degree murder. Howard Richmond, 50, was arrested by Ottawa police Friday in connection with the death of his 28-year-old wife, whose body was found in a South Keys ravine in Ottawa July 28. Howard is a warrant officer with the Canadian forces. He was arrested Friday, Aug. 2, a day before his wifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funeral. A week earlier, long-time friend Shelley Rabinovitch said she understood that Melissa Richmond had spent the evening with her husband and friends before heading out for a drive to unwind. On Friday, her gold Sebring was found in the parking lot of South Keys Shopping Centre near Kelseyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s restaurant. Richmondâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body was discovered nearby two days later on the morning of Sunday, July 28. Howard Richmond appeared in court via video link from the Ottawa-Carleton Detention Centre on Aug. 6 and was remanded into police custody. He is scheduled to appear in court again on Aug. 20. Before her husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arrest, friends were remembering Melissa Richmond as a caring person and loving wife after learning of her murder on July 29. Rabinovitch said Howard Richmond is a close friend of hers and was completely shattered when police identified the body as his wife. The husband didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get an update until late Monday afternoon after

Facebook

On Monday, July 29, police identified a body found at South Keys Shopping Centre as that of Melissa Richmond, 28, of North Dundas. She had been missing from her home south of Winchester since Wednesday, July 24. Rabinovitch contacted police upon learning from a friend that a police press release was about to be issued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was very upset because another member of the media had informed me that a press release was about to go out and they were just waiting for the French translation, and I knew damn well they hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t told Howard because I had been in (his) house for four days,â&#x20AC;? she said. Rabinovitch couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think of anyone who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t love Richmond or would want to harm her. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We really thought she had just bugged out to be with a friend or something, or that she had run off into a ditch and been injured,â&#x20AC;? Rabinovitch said before Howard Richmond was arrested.

It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t uncommon for Richmond, a dental hygienist, to go for a drive to unwind, Rabinovitch said. South Keys was a regular destination for Richmond and her husband to catch a movie or meet up with friends from an historical re-enactment group they are members of called the Society for Creative Anachronism. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like me. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just rolling out for a drive and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be back in a little while,â&#x20AC;? Rabinovitch said before Howard Richmondâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arrest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She just found it very relaxing and she was just out having a night drive.â&#x20AC;? Rabinovitch, who lives in South Keys, speculated before the arrest that the Dennyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s restaurant at the plaza might have been her friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

destination, since it is open 24/7. Alarm bells went off about 12 hours after Richmond reportedly left for a late-night drive, when family members realized she hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t made her way to Petawawa, where her military family resides, and she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t with friends. That launched an organized search that saw approximately 40 of Richmondâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s friends and even strangers, many of them members of the Canadian Forces, combing back roads searching for her car. On July 29, the investigation continued at the South Keys shopping centre, where five officers were searching through the bushes separating a ravine from the Kelseyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parking lot. A manager from the neighbouring Dennyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s restaurant said police reviewed security camera footage from that restaurant. Rabinovitch has known Richmond for a decade and described her as bright, vivacious and bubbly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was just loving and charismatic and silly and beautiful,â&#x20AC;? Rabinovitch said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know anyone personally who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like her.â&#x20AC;? Rabinovitch acted as Richmondâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mentor for historic re-enactment and role-playing. They are both members of the Canton of Harrowgate Heath, a local chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism whose members meet regularly to celebrate and recreate the heritage of the European Middle Ages.â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been almost a mother-daughter relationship,â&#x20AC;? Rabinovitch said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were very close.â&#x20AC;? Anyone with information about the investigation is urged to call OPP at 613-236-1222 ext. 5493. With files from Blair Edwards.

SAFETY TIPS Smoke Alarms: Test your smoke alarms. If a fire starts in your home while you are asleep, you want to know about it immediately. Some homes are equipped with electrically-connected smoke alarms that may not work when the power is out. Make sure your home has a battery-operated smoke alarm on every level.

Random acts of kindness

E

ditorial – Recently, a Canadian woman showed that random acts of kindness don’t really have to be so random. Monica Kavanaugh was inspired to purchase 800 cups of coffee for people she didn’t know for staff and other guests at the Edmonton hospital treating her father. She was given the idea after a gentleman in his mid-20s walked into a Tim Hortons and offered to pay for the next 500 large coffees. The bill came to more than $800. While Kavanaugh’s story is more widely publicized, she became part of a trend that is stretching across the country where more than 10,000 cups of coffee have been purchased through random acts of kindness at Tim Hortons locations that stretched from Red Deer and Calgary, all the way to Ottawa (where a man also purchased 500 large coffees for $860) and likely here in Lanark, Leeds and Grenville. Tim Hortons themselves promoted this act back in December when they promoted Random Acts of Kindness Week, where they would purchase customers’ orders at random. This initiative spawned a random acts of kindness chain that lasted for three hours (and 228 orders) in Winnipeg. In today’s society when the Internet and television screens are polluted with stories of conflict, murder and other dark deeds, it’s a little harder to find a light at

the end of the tunnel. Seeing stories such as this one does the heart good. According to Elizabeth Dunn, an associate professor of psychology at the University of British Columbia, people do these little acts for one simple reason: spending money or being kind to strangers makes us feel good. We may also do it in the hopes that others will follow the lead and in turn, do a selfless deed of their own. It’s about leading by example and not expecting anything in return. Each morning, many make the trek to the coffee shop, waiting in line to spend a few bucks on a cup of java. What’s the difference of adding a few extra dollars to your bill to pay for the next person in line’s order? It doesn’t have to be coffee. It might be giving someone tickets to a concert or baseball game, you can’t use. It’s true, random acts of kindness are nothing new. The ‘pay it forward’ mentality was resurrected by the 2000 movie of the same name, starring Kevin Spacey, which urged people to pass on the generosity they received, rather than paying it back. Every day people display small tokens of generosity, whether it be carrying a senior’s groceries to their car or holding the door for someone when entering or exiting a store, but showing affection towards the human race is something that doesn’t have to cost a thing.

Frustration, thy name is wireless

L

ifestyle - We were sitting with friends on the back porch after Sunday dinner when we first saw it. Everyone had their gaze focused on the horizon, watching the sunset. Suddenly Tom says, “When did that show up?” He pointed out a tower that we had first noticed a few days earlier. Somewhere around County Road 18, a new tower has been erected. I can only assume it’s a telecommunications tower. Of course I’m hoping it’s a wireless Internet tower. When I first set up my Internet at home, I made everything all cozy and convenient in my main floor office. But I couldn’t get a connection there. I wandered around the house with my laptop, turbo stick in place, and still couldn’t get a good signal. I sat in the kitchen, in the living room, in the TV room, even in my bedroom. The most I got was two out of five bars. Then I tried the signal in my daughter’s room. Bingo. Four bars. For the rest of that year of freelancing I had to do all my offline work during the day and save my online work for when my daughter was away at work. Frustration, thy name is wireless. Yes, I called tech services at my

The Accidental Farmwife DIANA FISHER

wireless provider. I spent four wonderful hours (two hours twice) getting to know two different techie people. They were amazingly patient, determined and persistent. We went step-by-step through all of my problems with the Internet service at the farm. Finally, after trouble shooting, rebooting, restarting and restoring, we gave up. On both of these tech calls, my helper eventually had to concede, “I’m sorry, ma’am. There appears to be a block on the tower.” A block on the tower? Well take it off! What does that mean, exactly? “The tower is overloaded.” Well, now we’re getting somewhere. “You mean you sold too many people onto the service and now none of us are getting a good signal.” “Basically, yes.” “Well, what are you going to do

about that?” I was put on hold again while the technician searched for someone trained to provide the appropriate answer for such a question. After a few minutes he came back. “If you try using your Internet late at night or early in the morning, you should be fine.” Uh huh. “Maybe you should credit me some of the monthly fees I have been paying, because you can see I have had virtually no usage.” “Your contract does not guarantee uninterrupted service, ma’am.” Nice. “So will you be building a new tower soon, to accommodate all of your customers?” “Probably. As soon as we have sold enough contracts to finance that development.” Uh huh. I thanked the nice man and hung up on him. A week later I tried again and an equally tactful and diplomatic woman spent over ninety minutes going through technical issues with me before finally coming to the same exact conclusion. When she got to the “there seems to be a block on the tower” part, I just skipped to the end and

explained the rest to her. Saved her the trouble of going and getting the appropriate response from her supervisor. I am locked into that particular contract until the spring of 2014. I don’t use the Internet enough at home to justify the cost of the cancellation fee so that I can switch to a new provider. And so I suffer. But I plan to give myself the birthday gift of new Internet services come April. The Farmer has considerably less patience than I do when it comes to technical issues. When he set up his real estate office at home, he banged his head on the desk for about a month before finally giving up and moving into the room that Paulina has recently vacated. It is still

the only spot in the house where you can get a clear wireless signal. And that is only in the middle of the day, when all of the neighbours are not using it. Good luck getting on between 4 p.m. and midnight, or anytime on the weekend. We sipped our drinks and watched the sun go down, beside the new tower that was marring our perfect horizon. And as soon as dusk settled, the darn thing started blinking. Great. Now it’s going to scare the horse.

DEATH NOTICE

McGOWAN John Francis (June 25, 1922 July 28, 2013) Passed away at LHSC on Sunday, July 28, 2013. Born in Montreal, John was one of 11 children of John Phillip and Rose Ellen McGowan. All of his siblings predeceased him: Alphonse, Mary, Catherine, Bernard, Bernice, Margaret, Francis, Neil, Peter and Stanley. John loved to recount tales of growing up on St. Urbain Street, attending McGee High and playing for three hockey teams at once. He joined the Army in 1940, as he said, in order to play more hockey. Instead he received training in Canada and England. He served valiantly in the 17th Royal Duke of York Hussars for the duration of the war. He was a sergeant in the reconnaissance unit that saw tense and highly dangerous action throughout France, Belgium, Holland and Germany. He refused an offer to take officer’s training so he could stay with his men. He carried the names of some those killed in action in his wallet and prayed for them every day. His active service ended about 10 days short of the Armistice when his car was bombed and he jumped clear only to severely injure his ankle in the hard landing. After the war John worked for CPR for 35 years as a locomotive fireman and engineer and latterly as a diesel engineer. He loved the railroad and frequently regaled his audience with stories about his co-workers and the tricks they played on one another. John was predeceased by his cherished wife of 63 years, Ursula (2011). He is survived and lovingly remembered by all of the children of his large and blended family: Donald Lenaghan (Wilma), Lorne Lenaghan (Dianne), Peter McGowan (Shirley), Kathleen McGowan (Don Blay) and Edward McGowan (Bonnie Dunbar) and by grandchildren Karen, Heather, Colleen, Randy, Brent, Brad, Jennifer, John, Katie Anne, Victoria, Duncan and Lucas and great grandchildren David, Moira, Mackenzie, Shamus, Becky, Ryan, Andrew, Jamie, Rachel, Alanah, Keegan, Matthew, John and Andrew and was immensely proud of each of them. This wonderful blended family expanded to add the Blays, Ben, Sarah and Tony and, much to Dads delight, Rylan and Tatum Blay. He loved and was immensely proud of all of these young persons. He is also lovingly remembered by his many nieces and nephews. John had a cotillion of friends over the years. He was an immensely social man who treated everyone the same and always made people smile with his sense of humour which was alive and healthy into his final days in the hospital. The family is most grateful to the amazing staff and wonderful residents at Amica of London for their many kindnesses and great friendship. We will always be indebted to the nursing staff of 4 IP at LHSC for their attentiveness and gentle care. They are unsung heroes in a milieu often fraught with pain and suffering. The Funeral Mass took place Friday, August 2, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. at St. George Catholic Church, 1164 Commissioners Road, London (Byron) Ontario. Visitation was held at the Church an hour before Mass. In lieu of flowers donations to your favourite charity would be appreciated. A. Millard George Funeral Home entrusted with arrangements (519-433-5184).

OBITUARY

OBITUARY

The McEwen family of Beckwith Township dates back to 1818 when the first settlers came from Scotland to Canada. In the intervening years, they have made their mark in agriculture, nursing, medicine, teaching and public service to name some of these areas. The part of the McEwen family we are concerned with here is the one located on the 8th Line of Beckwith. From the 1920’s, Harold and Helene McEwen farmed and raised their family of six children: Donald, Marjorie, Joan and Margaret (twins), Eveyln and Janet. From this family were to come 15 grandchildren, 36 great grandchildren and 5 great great grandchildren. In the past year, we have lost two of this family and their obituaries are printed below.

CARKNER, (Barber), Anne - In loving memory of a dear wife, mother and grandmother who passed away August 8, 2011. God looked around his garden And found an empty place, He then looked down upon the earth And saw your tired face. He put his arms around you And lifted you to rest. God’s garden must be beautiful He always take the best. He knew that you were suffering He knew you were in pain. He knew that you would never Get well on earth again. He saw the road was getting rough And the hills were hard to climb. So he closed your weary eyelids And whispered, “Peace be thine”. It broke our hearts to lose you But you didn’t go alone, For part of us went with you The day God called you home. Loved and dearly missed by your husband Allan, children and grandchildren.

HOCKNEY John (Jack) B. Jack Hockney, the husband of Margaret passed away on April 1, 2013 at the Grand River Hospital, Freeport Health Care Centre, with his family by his side. Jack was in his 82nd year, a very active member of St. James Rosemount United Church in Kitchener, Ontario and a retiree from Maple Lane Dairies (In truth, Jack was ‘the ice cream man’). He was the loving husband of 60 years of Margaret McEwen, and the dear father of Lynn and her husband Rob McLoughlin, Bill and his wife Sandy, Bev and her husband Ron Lee, Bob and his wife Robin, and Lori Armstrong of Fergus, and beloved grandpa to Jordan, Kyle, Sean, Tanya, Amanda, Brad, Ryan, Nicole, Scott, Kristy, Adam and Daniel and four great grandchildren Dominic, Makenna, Ryder and Alexis. Jack was predeceased by his parents William Hockney and Minnie Lucas, one brother Bill Hockney and son in law Steve Armstrong in 2008. Jack was a good and caring man who took a strong interest in his family, being with them in their figure skating as a family and going to their events in sports or in school. He was involved in the cottage life on Bass Lake, a long drive from Sarnia and then Kitchener. As for his sports teams allegiance, he was definitely all Toronto blue. A service celebrating his life was held in St. James Rosemount United Church in Kitchener on April 4th 2013, with his wife and several of his children and grandchildren taking part and led by the minister Rev. Christina Boyd. KINGSLEY Marjorie Is is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Marjorie Kingsley surrounded by her loving family on Monday July 15, 2013 at the age of 84. Marjorie fought a brave battle with cancer over the past 2 and a half years. Daughter of the late Harold and Helene McEwen, she was predeceased by her husband Wilson and granddaughter Alexa. She is survived by her daughters Kathryn and Nancy (David Seto) and sons David (Seada) and Donald (Erin, Kolton), grand children Tara, Weston, Noah, Devin, Ciara, Cassandra, Amy, Wayde, Allyson, Steven, Raymond, Kristina, Alex, and great granddaughter Maya. Dear sister of Janet (John Lebrun), Evelyn (Rev. Larry Paul), Margaret (the late Jack Hockney), Joan (the late Jack McDiarmid), and Donald (the late Edna and the late Zelma). Majorie was an elementary school teacher Ottawa, a very active member of the former Westboro United Church, an avid card player – especially bridge, for which she would travel here and there to play, and loving it every time. Over the years she was a gracious hostess to an assortment of boarders, relatives and friends. A service celebrating Marjorie’s life was held in The Garden Chapel of Tubman Funeral Homes on July 19, 2013, led by Rev. Jenni Leslie, and with some of her children, grandchildren and brotherin-law Rev. Larry Paul, who played a piano version of her favourite tune ‘Maple Sugar’ as a tribute.

IN MEMORIAM

BOLGER, Howard, 1922 - 2009 – In loving memory of a dear husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather who passed away August 6, 2009. The moment that you died, Our hearts split in two, The one side filled with memories, The other died with you. We often lay awake at night, When the world is fast asleep, And take a walk down memory lane, With tears upon our cheeks. Remembering you is easy, We do it every day, But missing you is a heartache, That never goes away. We hold you tightly within our hearts, And there you will remain, Life has gone on without you, But it never will be the same. For those who still have their loved ones, Treat them with tender care, You will never know the emptiness, As when you turn and they are not there. Forever in our hearts, always in our prayers. Your wife Valma and family

They say that time heals everything, But we know it isn’t so, Because it hurst as much today, As it did five years ago. Sadly missed and lovingly remembered by all your family

Joining the backlash against hand-held device abuse Lifestyle – The proliferation of portable devices has moved from being an annoyance to crisis proportions with innocent individuals paying the price for other people’s addiction to these hand-held communications units. I have long been an advocate of more consequences when drivers are caught using cellular telephones while operating a motor vehicle or, even worse, are seen by police while they are texting behind the wheel. Among all the forms of distracted driving which are plaguing society at present, texting is the most prevalent and easily the most dangerous. How can anyone safely operate a vehicle while they are sending texts? Unfortunately most offenders are not deterred by the possibility of a $155 fine (in Ontario). They know the likelihood of being caught in the act is minimal. The same odds as being detected speeding. The reality is there aren’t enough police and most of the time officers are tied up with other matters. Therefore most people aren’t the least bit concerned about being caught. Every day I see people driving while brazenly talking on a cellphone, or I notice motorists who are looking down as they very obviously use their hand held device to send a text or email. I witness this kind of activity literally everywhere we travel. It’s a global epidemic and a very serious one! The dangers related to the foolish misuse of cellphones was brought home to my wife and me recently when a friend of ours in Scotland barely escaped with her life from a motor vehicle mishap involving cellphone abuse. The young lady in question was driving to work when a car zoomed out of a private drive directly into her path. The man in the other vehicle was talking on his mobile phone and apparently failed to notice he had entered the traveled portion of a busy roadway.

Reflections BY JEFF MAGUIRE

Our friend tried evasive action but it was too late. She slammed into the side of the other vehicle at speed. She was trapped in her car and had to be freed by firefighters. Police say the only thing that saved her was the airbags in her new generation vehicle which inflated on impact. Her nose was broken by the bag which exploded from the steering column. She also suffered a small fracture in the pelvis, an injury that forced her to be immobile and left her in considerable pain. She was off work for several weeks. All because someone decided talking on their cellphone was more important than his driving. He was subsequently charged with careless driving. He will also be fined under the law which exists in the United Kingdom forbidding the use of handheld devices in a moving motor vehicle. Small consolation for our young friend who ended up with a painful pelvic injury, a broken nose, swollen face and two black eyes. Her new car was a total write-off. As for the other driver, he escaped without a scratch! Cellphone addict The father of our acquaintance, who happened upon the scary scene minutes after it happened, saw the other motorist still talking on his phone (for more than 20 minutes apparently). Meanwhile rescuers were working to free his daughter from her wrecked vehicle. To say the least Dad was not amused! The issue involved is obvious. More has to be done to stop this dangerous activity wherever it is happen-

ing. In the western world at least, that is everywhere! It’s not just distracted drivers either. There is a growing number of distracted pedestrians too although obviously it’s difficult to legislate against that problem. Unless of course the actions of portable device users lead to a collision. The reality is that more and more people are stepping into traffic and winding up in hospital because they are texting, emailing or talking on their cellphone as they walk. An American study reveals that in 2010 more than 1,500 pedestrians were treated in US emergency rooms for injuries related to using a cellphone while walking. Others died of their injuries. And the study shows the incidence of this kind of activity is steadily rising. Estimates are that by 2015 the number of injuries to pedestrians using cellphones will be double the 2010 figure. Experts blame so-called “smart phones” for the increase in motor vehicle crashes and pedestrian accidents related to cellphone use. That’s because the wide array of functions available on these devices is all the more distracting to those addicted to their use. The US study found those involved, mainly people 24 years of age and under, were so distracted at the time of their accident that they were totally unaware of their surroundings. The good news? Fortunately there is a growing movement among portable device users to try and wean themselves off the constant use of these gadgets. Many texting addicts (yes, this has become a recognized affliction folks) are beginning to fight the urge to send messages constantly. Some people – usually teenagers – are up all night sending and receiving texts, usually about the most inane things imaginable. The most seriously addicted are sending between 200 and 300 texts in every 24 hour period according to recent studies in North America.

Seriously, when do they have time to do anything else? Teen texters eventually become teen drivers and – well, you can imagine the rest. I heard part of a radio talk show on this subject recently. A number of the callers raised my hope that this trend will eventually run its course with many people. Perhaps that will lead to a decline in public use of portable devices and cellphones? One male caller said he suddenly realized, while sitting in a restaurant with three friends, that all of them were texting other people and not talking among themselves. “I thought ‘how ridiculous’. Time to put this thing away.’ I told my friends the same thing and everyone ended up turning off their smart phones. We spent the rest of the night focused on each other,” he said. Hallelujah – some people are finally starting to get it! I am now hearing similar stories from friends and acquaintances when this subject comes up. A growing number of people are annoyed with this sort of distraction in public (it’s a darn nuisance to be honest). More and more people are asking offenders to turn off their devices and put them away. For me the best evidence of just how big a problem this has become occurred during a stop at a store in downtown Burlington, Vermont during our visit to the northeastern U.S. in late June. Clearly staff at the emporium in question are fed up with customers who can’t even stay off their cellphone long enough to complete a transaction. Pasted to the back of the cash register was this very pointed message. “Putting your phone away and paying attention to those talking to you. There’s an app for that. It’s called RESPECT!” If you have any comments or questions for Jeff Maguire he can be reached by email at: jeffrey.maguire@rogers.com.

Farm Credit Canada launches 10th Drive Away Hunger program News – Farm Credit Canada (FCC) and its partners throughout the country will strive to collect a record five million pounds of food for Canada’s food banks this year to mark the 10th anniversary of the FCC Drive Away Hunger program. “To date, we’ve collected the equivalent of almost 10 million pounds of food through Drive Away Hunger,” said FCC president and chief executive officer Greg Stewart. “To mark this anniversary, we want to surpass this mark by collecting another five million pounds of food.” “That’s a lot of food, but the problem of hunger weighs heavily on everyone and we are proud to do our part to help feed those less fortunate,” added Stewart, noting that hunger touches nearly a million Canadians each month, many of whom are children.” FCC’s Drive Away Hunger program involves driving a tractor and trailer through various communities to collect food and cash donations for food banks across the country. One hundred per cent of donations go to Canadian food banks, and anyone can visit www.fccdriveawayhunger. ca to make a cash donation. At the May 7 launch, FCC donated $100,000 to Food Banks Canada. Half of this amount will be used by

Food Banks Canada to support all individuals and families who use food bank services, while the remainder will be equally split between Hunger Awareness Week and the Rural Support Program, which provides additional support and resources to food banks based in rural communities. This year, FCC Drive Away Hunger program tours will take place the week of Oct. 14 in Ontario, Quebec, Alberta, Prince Edward Island and Saskatchewan, including the FCC corporate office in Regina. FCC is also collecting food and cash donations in field offices across Canada from May 7 to Oct. 18. “This initiative is an excellent example of the generosity and sense of community found throughout Canadian farm families,” said Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz. “I’m happy to see FCC and the agriculture community continue to demonstrate leadership through the Drive Away Hunger program.” FCC’s enthusiastic partners are also a major reason for Drive Away Hunger’s success year after year. As a platinum partner, BDO, national accounting and financial advisory firm, has once again committed to collecting food for the Drive Away Hunger program. BDO has raised more than 651,000 pounds of food THE EMC - 48 - Thursday, August 8, 2013

and $185,000 since 2008. “On behalf of BDO, I am thrilled to announce our continued support of the FCC Drive Away Hunger campaign,” said Keith Farlinger, chief executive officer, BDO. “This will be our sixth year of participation, joining forces from coast to coast to collect food and monetary donations. We are proud to partner with FCC once again to assist Canadians in need across the country.” Parrish and Heimbecker Limited (New Life Mills) and Windset FarmsTM are also national partners playing an important role across Canada in collecting donations and helping FCC achieve its goal. FCC Drive Away Hunger began in 2004 when an employee in Ontario organized a local tractor tour. He collected food donations from his local community as a way to give back and help food banks serve people in need. Since then, FCC Drive Away Hunger has grown dramatically, with 9.2 million pounds of food and $760,000 collected to date. “As one of Food Banks Canada’s top 10 food drives, FCC’s Drive Away Hunger campaign is making an impact in rural communities across the country,” said Katharine Schmidt, executive director, Food Banks Canada. “The passion and drive of their

employees is inspiring and is a testament to the commitment they have to their communities. We are thrilled to partner with FCC in 2013 and wish them a successful and food-filled 10th anniversary.” FCC is socially and environmentally responsible. Corporate social responsibility activities are focused in five areas: agriculture and food, customers, community, employees and the environment. Drive Away Hunger is one way FCC fosters strong and vibrant communities where its customers and employees live and work. As Canada’s leading agriculture lender, FCC is advancing the business of agriculture. With a healthy portfolio of more than $25 billion and 20 consecutive years of portfolio growth, FCC is strong and stable – committed to serving the industry through all cycles. FCC provides financing, insurance, software, learning programs and other business services to producers, agribusinesses and agri-food operations. FCC employees are passionate about agriculture and committed to the success of customers and the industry. For more information, visit www.fcc.ca. Follow FCC on Twitter @FCCagriculture.

The nature of taste dictates eating habits for many people Taste is the physical reaction we have to foods and drinks. Foods are cellular and we are cellular beings. We operate on Neurological responses. These include chemical and synapse responses. One must include all our senses. Touch, mouth-feel, smell, sight, hearing and finally our brain responds positively or negatively to a food that we are consuming. Large corporations spend millions every year to study just those reactions. Fast food companies want a product that is cooked to the perfect temperature, made from just the right set of flavourings, the right consistency, the perfect serving size and produced in a consistent and cost effective way We make food choices based on our own set of factors. You may feel run down and you know that sugar will immediately pick you up and you crave chocolate or a sweet drink. You may be on the run and need a fast meal for your family. How the food tastes to us on an individual basis plays a large role in our encouragement to continue eating them. The fact is that a food that you really dislike is never going to give you any taste satisfaction. A food that you pas-

sionately love will always be a favourite. Our taste buds are more or less sensitive to certain foods and preparation techniques. If we eat only the foods we love, our body will not get the range of nutrients it needs. It is very important when you are eating a healthy balanced diet to eat a variety of foods that provide nutrients from each food group. An interesting fact is that we only really ‘taste’ the first few bites of foods we love. Decreasing the portion may make you feel deprived at first, but no worse than someone telling you that the food is bad and you can never have it again. It is absolutely important to take the time to really ‘taste’ your food. Enjoy it, chew it and allow the senses of sight, touch, taste, smell and sound of your food each time you eat. Food is an experience. Do not let major corporations turn your food into a carnival, a game or a race. Do not let guilt rule your food choices. Just modify the portions and strive for healthy balance. Enjoy food! Heather Westendorp is a graduate of the University of Guelph: Food, Nutrition and Risk Management Diploma. She has also lost over 50 lbs. and is now a healthy weight!

Here’s My Card R0012116365_0718

Lifestyle - Taste for foods is a primal function. The foods you like are based on many things; 1. Habit (what you normally eat) 2. Association (remember the time you had that delicious Cuban sandwich?) 3. Ethnic Heritage and Tradition (my grandmother made the greatest Goulash) 4. Values (eating meat is bad because an animal must die) 5. Social Interaction (who do you eat with and what do they like?) 6. Emotional State (remember losing that first boyfriend and the ice cream tub) 7. Availability, Convenience and Economy There are many factors that play a role in the foods we choose. Science has identified taste in terms of sweet, salt, sour, bitter and the highly debated umami. We can even look at pictures of the tongue and identify areas that allegedly ‘sense’ these tastes. Taste is still a very young study. Why do human beings like a ratio of 10 per cent sugar in a drink, yet if you increase or decrease this ratio, the drink is less desirable?

ALL YOU CAN EAT

An important lesson from a potato battery Lifestyle - Many of you may have seen ‘batteries’ made from potatoes or lemons. These are frequently the topic of science fair exhibits. They also tend to lighten the mood in more serious science classes when studying electrochemistry. Essentially, all you need to put together a potato battery is a large potato (obviously), a copper electrode, a zinc electrode, a few pieces of wire for connectors, and a volt meter. Most of these materials are readily obtainable. A copper pipe strap can be easily straightened to serve as the copper electrode, and a galvanized metal spike with its zinc coating can be used as the zinc electrode. Once you have assembled the required components, you simply insert the galvanized spike into one side of the potato and the straightened copper strap into the other side of it (they must not touch each other). You can then fasten a wire to each of the electrodes and connect them to a voltmeter. A digital display meter will be easier to read than one with a needle indicator. The copper strap should be hooked up to the positive side of the meter, and the zinc-coated nail to the negative terminal. With the potato battery I made, the voltage generated was 0.57 volts DC (direct current).

This is not enough to power anything; but as a scientific curiosity, it’s definitely “neat”. By putting two potato batteries in series, the voltage can be doubled. Actual voltages may vary from one potato battery to another due to a number of uncontrollable factors. However, in all cases, a voltage should be observed. In 2009, a group of individuals, who probably had far too much time on their hands, entered the Guinness Book of Records for having generated 538.1 volts DC using 1,000 potato batteries connected in series. Using a lemon instead of a potato will generate a slightly higher voltage, but the overall effect is the same. What actually happens is that the weakly acidic juice of the potato functions as an electrolyte, just like the acid in a car battery. With two dissimilar metals such as copper and zinc, a potential difference is developed which causes electrons to travel through the electrolyte from one piece of metal to the other. When the circuit is completed by connecting a wire from each electrode to the volt meter, an electric current begins to flow. Now for the important lesson: In our simple experiment here, we deliberately brought two dissimilar metals into contact through the juice of the potato. As we saw, an electric current

was generated. Such things can occur unintentionally in our homes if we do not use the correct materials for a do-it-yourself project. This is quite obvious when working with copper plumbing. Copper piping should only be secured with copper straps paired with copper nails to fasten them to wooden framework. If non-copper metal straps are used, there can be a potential difference between the two dissimilar metals which may cause corrosion of the copper piping or tubing. Over time, the results can be costly. The same thing can take place if non-copper nails are used with copper pipe straps. This type of corrosion can also happen if you connect copper piping to any other metal piping. A plastic connector, or other appropriate measure, is necessary to prevent them from physically contacting each other. So, before you go fastening copper piping or any other metal materials in place, remember to use compatible straps, nails, or screws to do the job. In this way, you will avoid setting up a potentially corrosive “battery” in an undesirable location. Don Mercer is Associate Professor, Food Science, Kemptville Campus, University of Guelph.

Ottawa 67’s to take on Kingston Frontenacs Sept. 3 in Kemptville Sports – In Canada, there are only two seasons, summer and hockey. This year’s hockey season starts with a bang just after the Labour Day weekend right here in Kemptville with a highcaliber Ontario Hockey League (OHL) exhibition game between the Ottawa 67’s and Kingston Frontenacs at the North Grenville Municipal Centre. It’s affordable family fun for most families, but sadly, not all. Hopefully our Kemptville business community can help. The unfortunate reality is that some families cannot afford to cover the cost of tickets in order to attend this funfilled event. With that in mind, let’s

work together to ensure that nobody misses out. Local businesses and community leaders are encouraged to purchase tickets for those who are less fortunate by reserving tickets for children and youth, which will then be distributed through organizations such as the Kemptville Youth Centre. We urge you go contact 67’s representative Calvin Amell for all the details at CAmell@OSEG.ca or 613-232-6767 ext. 237. Let’s make this a community event for our entire community! September 3 is bound to be an evening to remember. Come out with your friends and family to support the Ottawa 67’s. Contact Calvin to purchase

your tickets and share the excitement by purchasing at least one other to be distributed to local children and youth to enjoy the rush of the good old hockey game. It’s great hockey action only a few minutes away from home, starting at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available for the general publics at the North Grenville Municipal Centre for only $10 ($15 on game night) or you can order electronically by contacting Calvin Amell by the email above. About the Kemptville Youth Centre The Kemptville Youth Centre is a non-profit organization with a mission to engage youth in making positive

life choices in a socially accepting environment to reach their full potential as responsible productive citizens. Opportunities to attend athletic or cultural events expand the experience

of youth beyond what they normally enjoy. If you have an opportunity to share tickets for an experience, call The Kemptville Youth Centre to pass them on to youth.

But this throws havoc in the afternoon foursomes. Cancellations are woes for the Captain having to redo the teams. Let us hope that the two months left will be great golfing weather. Rideau Glen ladies league has its very own "Imbee Park" { LPGA no,1 player with 3 majors wins this season}; in the person of Pat Hayes. Our league has five major tournaments in our short schedule and so far Pat has won three of them. Will she win the fourth, which is the prestigious Club Championship? The pressure is building-up, but we know that Pat strives under pressure. Also, Pat has to be the eldest winner of any of these tournaments having qualified many years ago for senior discount! Way to go Pat! At the "Ladies Invite a Guest" 74 players and guests enjoyed a perfect afternoon of play under bright sunshine. Best ball was the format with everyonemen and women starting from the red tees. The longest drive for both were on no. 9 and closest to the pin after a chip on was no.5. The winners for longest drive ladies - Brenda Macumber. For the men--Crawford Barkhouse. Closest to the pin - ladies--Diana Uloth. For the men--Richard Blaine. The winning team---3 of them came out with the same score of 34. So by retrogression the winners were from the team of Marg McCornock, with Gerry Kincaid and Nancy and David Porter. Mary presented them the "Bonnie Hall" trophy. This was the old "Teddy Bear" trophy given in our "Friendly". But this has been discontinued, so it was recommission. This trophy was given by Bonnie Hall who was a long-time member of Rideau Glen and the ladies league. Congratulations to all the winners!

I seem to be mentioning a great deal about the weather. But it plays such a great role in our life of golf. Whether it is rain, intense heat of high humidity, it decides if and when we play. There is nothing worse than playing in the rain. Everything - your bag, your clubs, your balls and yourself get soaking wet. Water is dripping from the peak of your cap or visor, your glasses are full of raindrops and you can barely see through them. Lovely rain... Then there is the high heat and humidity; you still get wet in one way or the other. Is it more pleasant? Because of both rain or extreme heat, games have Nicole gave out a birdie pin to Nancy been cancelled. Some have chosen to play early in the morning in order to beat Porter-for her first birdie ever.

The "Intersectional" was held on July 8 at Heritage Golf course in Lancaster. The reason no one heard anything about it, was that there was nothing good to report. We lost big time! First place was Falcon Ridge----23 points Second Heritage- host course---17 Third Rideau Glen-- - 2 points Fourth Cantley no show. But do not forget that the day before, we had had torrential rain that lasted the whole afternoon. Again the weather played a huge part in our game. The fairways were covered with puddles of water and the greens were very soft. When your ball goes from one puddle to the next, even though it was pick, clean and place, it still played on your mind for you to hit a super strong long shot in order to reach the greens. The golf course at Lancaster is a beautiful and long course with 5 Par 5. Our team of eight ladies were all seniors playing against the "young ones" from Falcon Ridge, where there was at least a full generation gap, and handicaps of 15 and below. We didn't have a chance! Our lone scorer was Elaine MacNaughtan. Carolyn Richardson also scored two points, but being the alternate, her score didn't count. Hopefully we will redeem ourselves at the Seniors in September. As the photo shows we all looked very sporty and dignified in our purple and white golf shirts. No one can deny that we didn't do our utmost best.

FOR CA$H

July was a very busy month for the ladies league, with the Intersectional, the "Dickenson Tray" tournament, the last of the Match-play and the" Ladies Invite a Guest". All were played under bright sunny weather. Our "Golf Angels" smiled down on us for a few good games. The third and final leg of the "de Pencier" matchplay tournament was with Pat Hayes versus Pat Kealey and Lana Hanes versus Marg McCornock with both Pat Hayes and Lana winning their matches. The last leg to decide the winner between Pat and Lana ended with Pat winning it all. Congratulations Pat!
