News – Members of Sustainable North Grenville accomplished what they set out to do at the information session held at the Municipal Centre on the evening of Sept. 18. The three speakers at the information session regarding the proposed TransCanada pipeline, which would run through a portion of the community, were highly educated experts who brought up some excellent points. The session began with a quick welcome to all 118 attendees from Chris Weissflog, a member of SNG. “I just want to say thanks to all of you who came out,” said Weissflog. “It’s a wonderful showing here tonight. Whether you are for or against or just want to learn more.” Weissflog proceeded to explain the succession of events that led to the actions now being taken by concerned citizens in North Grenville. “Things began in mid-June, when we heard reports of TransCanada people in the area canvassing residents,” said Weissflog. “Things progressed quickly from there. The pipeline began to get mass coverage from the media. That’s when we learned that a pipeline carrying bitumen would pass through a highly vulnerable section of our community.” Weissflog said that on Oct. 2 TransCanada would be hosting an open house at the Municipal Centre, which he encouraged all residents to attend. “We welcome that,” said Weissflog. “It gives us the opportunity to ask questions and hear more information. We are here tonight as a forum for community members to come and learn more about the issue.” Weissflog then introduced Tom Graham, who acted as the moderator for the evening. Graham, in turn, introduced Andrea

Harden-Donahue, who is part of the Council of Canadians, which is Canada’s leading social action organization. Harden began with an explanation of media coverage surrounding the TransCanada pipeline, which has been presented in some outlets as a win-win scenario for Canadians. “We hear a lot about how good it is,” said Harden. “This rests on two main arguments, which are job creation and meeting Eastern oil needs. I don’t buy it.” Harden focuses on the energy aspect within the Council of Canadians and spends a lot of time talking about pipeline risks in communities across the country. Harden said that Newfoundland produces 200,000 barrels of oil a day, which is then shipped to the United States. She argued that oil produced in Newfoundland should stay in the East, but it is shipped over the border to the highest bidder. Harden also brought up the fact that a new deep water port is being built in St. John’s. The reason for this new port, according to Harden, is to ship oil from the TransCanada pipeline overseas. “This pipeline actually puts Ontario energy at risk,” said Harden. “The pipeline they want to convert supplies Ontario with natural gas from Enbridge, who have raised concerns about a decreased capacity for gas.” Harden said this will affect the amount of money Ontario residents pay for natural gas. The job argument was also debated by Harden, who stated that oil companies have made false claims about job creation in the past. “TransCanada has come out with a report saying the pipeline will create 10,000 jobs,” said Harden, “but they have a bad track record, in terms of job promises. There is a big difference between jobs promised and jobs actually created.” See LOCAL page K2

Municipality re-allocates funds By JENNIFER WESTENDORP jwestendorp@perfprint.ca

News – Unforeseen infrastructure costs have led to the re-allocation of municipal funds. This does not mean the 2013 budget will increase, but rather that existing funds slotted for smaller capital projects will be used elsewhere. An emergency pump replacement at the VanBuren Street well caused the first reallocation. In the 2013 budget, there was a capital line item for a water break trailer, in the amount of $15,000. “A water break trailer is an actual trailer containing all the necessary equipment to deal with a water main break,” said Karen Dunlop, Director of Public Works. This water break trailer is no longer in the cards for North Grenville in this year’s budget, as the well replacement, which is viewed as a priority, cost $9,800. The replacement was an unforeseen cost that the municipality incurred. The funds designated for the water break trailer have now been re-allocated to the pump replacement.

“The one saving grace of the water system is it’s all interconnected, which means that if we lose one pump, everyone will still have water, but we lose our redundancy,” said Dunlop. “So, if we lose one, we’re fine. If we lose two, then it gets a little dicey.” Dunlop said that having water services in the municipality is more important than a water break trailer, which is why the funds were re-allocated. The second shuffling of funds is slightly more complicated. The Clothier Street construction project has met with some unexpected issues, pertaining to storm sewers. The original budget for the project was $1,741,000. The amended cost of the project is $1,970,000. This equates a difference of $229,000. “Of that $229,000, we had a little bit extra in the original budget,” said Dunlop. Dunlop explained the $100,000 contingency fund, which was something the municipality had already budgeted for, is going towards the unforeseen costs. However, the municipality is still short $127,000, with regards to the project.

CDSBEO develops bully prevention plan discipline, schools are instructed to respond to and deal with difficult behaviours by using a restorative approach, allowing students to understand the effect of their actions. The approach facilitates an environment where relationships can be repaired and rebuilt. Additional specialized student supports are put in place when a serious or repeated case may exist in order to stop bullying and student victimization. The draft plan will be publicly available for consultation; any comments can be directed to Karen.Hogan@cdsbeo. on.ca. Use of copyright-protected works for education The Copyright Act (R.S.C. 1985) is the federal statute that governs copyright law in Canada. The act is intended to balance the interests that people have in using copyright-protected works with the rights of creators to receive payment for the use of those works. On June 29, 2012, the act was amended with the passage of the Copyright Modernization Act. A key amendment was the expanded fair dealing provision to identify education as one of the eligible purposes for fair dealing. The Ministry of Education has, in response, set out recommended guidelines to describe the conditions and limits of fair dealing for education, and by extension, the roles and responsibilities of school boards regarding the use of copyright-protected works in compliance with the copyright act. Superintendent of school effectiveness, Charlotte Rouleau, outlined the guidelines for fair dealing provisions to the board of trustees. These guidelines permit the use of copyright-protected works without permission or payment of royalties. To qualify for fair dealing, the use of the work must be for the purpose stated in the copyright act: research, private study, criticism, review, news reporting, education, satire, and parody. In addition, use of the copyright-protected work must be fair; this means that a teacher can make copies of short excerpts for each student in her or her class, however teachers cannot copy whole textbooks. Examples of short excerpts include

a single article from a magazine, one chapter from a book, a newspaper article, or up to ten per cent of a copyrighted-protected work. Compliance strategies have been created for school boards, and the fair dealing guidelines have been distributed to all CDSBEO teachers. In addition, copyright posters which summarize the fair dealing guidelines have been posted for educators at Board computers, work stations, and photocopiers. Ontario EcoSchools certification Ontario EcoSchools is an environmental education and certification program for grades kindergarten to 12 that helps school communities develop both ecological literacy and environmental practices to become environmentally responsible citizens and reduce the ecological footprint of schools. Schools may apply to be certified as an EcoSchool through an annual certification process which assesses and recognizes accomplishments awarding points in six key areas of achievement. Curriculum consultant, Tanya Sesbreno, summarized the Ontario EcoSchools Certification Program for the board of trustees. In order to become certified, schools must consider the certification guide, which provides a quick reference tool for the five steps to certification. The guide also provides tips for successful completion of the certification process. Schools receive points for five areas of consideration which must be complete to obtain an EcoSchools certification. These five areas include: teamwork and leadership, energy conservation, waste minimization, school ground greening, curriculum connections to the environment, and environmental stewardship. Schools from the CDSBEO first began applying to become certified as an Ontario EcoSchool in 2009. That year, three elementary and three secondary schools became certified. Since then, applications from the board have grown exponentially each year. Nine schools were certified in the 2010-11 school year, 15 the following year, and 17 in the 2012-13 school year. Submitted by the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario.

News – The following are highlights from the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario’s (CDSBEO) regular meeting held Sept. 17 at the board office in Kemptville. A draft board bully prevention and intervention plan has been developed by the CDSBEO, in response to the Ministry of Education’s Policy Program Memorandum 144. Under this legislation, schools and school boards must provide students with the opportunity to learn and develop in a safe, inclusive, and accepting school climate. Research also indicates that early intervention is essential for both the victim of bullying and the child who bullies. Superintendent of school effectiveness, Dr. Donaleen Hawes, presented an overview of the draft plan to the board of trustees. To develop the plan, the board is soliciting views from principals, staff, students, parents, community partners, and the special education advisory committee. The plan focuses on building resiliency and using restorative practices for prevention, identifying targeted interventions, and providing specialized supports, including community mental health supports. Building resiliency and positive mental health is a central focus for the plan at the preventative stage. This approach is strengths based; encouraging students through positive supports which helps them to focus on developing their gifts. Resiliency surveys are used to help identify any students who may require additional supports to build resiliency. School teams focus on developing empathy, understanding and effective skills by using early prevention strategies and programs such as Roots of Empathy and WITS (Walk away, Ignore, Talk it out, Seek help) and various social justice initiatives. Proactive classroom circles are used to support the building of an environment that is positive and inclusive. While many students respond positively to the prevention programs and activities, some students require more targeted interventions and specialized programs. Reinforced by the school code of conduct, and the use of progressive

Delta United congregation marks 185th anniversary Sept. 29 Events – Let’s celebrate! On Sunday, Sept. 29, starting at 10:30 a.m. the Delta United congregation will celebrate three milestones in the life of their congregation with guest minister Rev. David Timpson and special music by the choir. Refreshments will follow the service. The church celebrates 185 years having started as a Methodist congregation in 1828 with visits made by Saddle Bag Preachers out of Kingston. In the beginning the first settlers would meet in each other’s homes or at the school house and possibly the mill but they also congregated in the Anglican Church sharing space with the Baptists. A few years later the Anglican Diocese purchased the building.

They celebrate 125 years in their current building that includes the bell tower, sanctuary and hall. The Methodist congregation had built their first church in 1868 which in just 20 years they outgrew. In 1888, Beverley/Delta was a very prosperous community so the congregation managed to build their second church on land donated by the Russell family. In 1925 the Methodists, Presbyterians and Congregationalists amalgamated to form the United Church of Canada, hence changing the name, but nonetheless the people continued to congregate in the same building. The celebration gives thanks to all who helped in any way with the renovations to the building. With fi-

nancial help from the federal government’s Community Infrastructure and Improvement Funding (CIIF) they have completed repairs/replacements to the main roof, installed an energy efficient propane furnace and a new hot water tank. With other donations improvements were made to the hall. The past is being celebrated with guest speaker Dr. Sandra Campbell, author of ‘Both Hands: A Life of Lorne Pierce of Ryerson Press’. Dr. Campbell will talk about the life of Lorne Pierce and his family who were prominent members of the community and the Methodist/United Church in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Copies of the book will be for sale and signed by the author.

New outlook, strong faith has given Lombardy man new lease on life By LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com

Community – Caleb Robson’s positive attitude has made all the difference in his journey over the past few years. So has his faith.

The 52-year-old Lombardy man recently received a new kidney from his younger sister, Jodi, and he’s been chosen as this year’s Kidney Foundation ambassador. “She’ll do anything to get under my skin,” Robson said

with a laugh. “That’s my little sister.” Despite some medical setbacks – which Robson calls “little bumps” in the road – he says he’s chosen to look at the brighter side of things. The once-active, 270-pound

man, who played hockey and many other sports, faithfully, but admitted his diet was a little too much on the fast-food side, dropped nearly 100 pounds on the road to a new kidney. Prior to his kidney operation, he had to go through a series of surgeries to remove various organs where tumors were growing. A tumor was found on his pancreas in 2009, so out came his spleen and part of his pancreas. In 2011, he was diagnosed with diabetes, forcing him to take a look at his life and get into a healthy eating/ exercise routine. In short order, he’d dropped a significant amount of weight, all the while still ingesting medicinal cocktails to manage his creatinine level. “I look at all the labels now,” he said of his food. “It’s something I can’t take lightly.” But his kidneys were still failing, and even more so by the beginning of 2012 when he had to start dialysis. Working an early shift at his job at Kia, Smiths Falls, where he is the parts manager, Robson was able to drive himself to Kingston for dialysis which took about six hours: four hours on dialysis and two hours of driving time. “It made for really long days,” he said. Then he was transferred to

the Perth and District Smiths Falls Hospital’s dialysis unit, where he met his new team of nurses and fellow patients, who became his friends and extended family. “I can’t say enough about Debbie Hamilton (head dialysis nurse) and the girls – Darlene, Debbie, Shelley and Shelley, and Cindy… they’re all just amazing and very knowledgeable about diet and how to control fluid intake. Any questions I had, they were great to answer.” Early this year, Robson had part of his stomach and colon removed because doctors found another tumour. He was diagnosed with cancer, a prognosis he lived with for about three months. “It gets better,” he said, still smiling, as he related his story. “I was supposed to get my kidney – my sister was tested and she was the first one too, and everything was good to go. Then the doctors told me I had cancer. So I had to wait to see how I going to go through treatment for that.” That was in May this year… in June, he was told the growth that was removed from his stomach – along with part of his stomach, colon and now, gallbladder due to gallstone attacks he was suffering – was benign.

“We thought I had cancer,” he said. “But it turned out it wasn’t, so the kidney surgery could go ahead.” The transplant happened in an Ottawa hospital on June 27. His sister was in hospital for five days, Robson for six days. But all is not yet rosy, in fact, Robson, despite his jovial outlook on life, has to be cautious of disease due to his compromised immune system. “I have a surgical mask I need to wear in public so I don’t get sick,” he said. “I carry Purel (hand sanitizer) with me, but what else can I do but stay positive?” Not only has he been under medical stress, but there has been stress at home too. “We’ve had some financial difficulty, and had to put our house up for sale,” he said. It’s a home that he built for his family of five: his wife, Susan; daughter Ashley, and sons Jacob and Connor. “My wife is not too happy that we have to sell,” he said. “But that’s not the important thing. A house is just a house… home is where we make it.” Kidney foundation On Sunday, Sept. 29, the Perth community will be hosting the fourth annual kidney See KIDNEY page 4 R0012311575_0926

New United Counties housing and homelessness plan approved ognized for service Warden Ron Holman and council congratulated Township of Athens mayor Herb Scott Sept. 19 for receiving a long-service award at the Eastern Ontario Municipal Conference in Kingston last week. Scott was recognized for his 25-plus years of service to his community. Scott has served in municipal politics since 1982 when he was first elected as councillor for the Township of Rear of Yonge and Escott. Sitting council members encouraged him to run. He was elected reeve of Rear of Yonge and Escott in 1992. In 2001, following the amalgamation of municipalities, Scott became mayor of the Township of Athens. He would later serve as a councillor for the Township of Elizabethtown-Kitley before being re-elected as mayor in Athens in 2010. “I still enjoy the job,� Scott said, adding his interest is having the township and Counties running smoothly. Scott attended the counties council meeting despite experiencing a large barn fire at his Athens family farm overnight. The barn was destroyed along with thousands of bales of hay and straw. Fortunately the family’s Holstein herd was not in the structure at the time. The Scott family has been farming in the Athens area Athens mayor Herb Scott rec- since 1950.

News – The following are highlights of the regular United Counties of Leeds and Grenville Council Meeting held Sept. 19 and the Joint Services Committee of Leeds and Grenville on Sept. 18. The Joint Services Committee of Leeds and Grenville has approved a housing and homelessness plan which will now be submitted to the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing (MMAH) for review. The Housing Services Act of 2011 requires a 10-year plan. Deborah Gill, Leeds and Grenville’s manager of housing, and a working group spend the last 18 months developing a plan for Leeds and Grenville. The group worked in consultation with the Housing Services Corporation, the Ontario Municipal Social Services Association, and the Ministry. Three main goals have been identified. They include maintaining the current affordable services and housing, enhancing services to reflect the changing needs of the community and, thirdly, involving all stakeholders in the development and implementation of the housing plan. The ministry’s review process takes 90 days. Leeds Grenville staff will then review recommendations from the ministry early in 2014.

Miller Manor and The Maples water quality Operational and financial plans for Miller Manor in Mallorytown and The Maples in Spencerville were approved by the joint services committee on Sept. 18. The operational plan for each site describes the activities, personnel, policy and procedure, and responsibilities associated with operating and managing the well water system. Except for system-specific diagrams for each site, the plans and supporting procedures are the same. Under the Quality Management System there are required internal and externals audits, a risk assessment of the waterworks, an emergency testing exercise, and infrastructure and management reviews. A financial plan mandated by the Safe Drinking Water Act has also been completed. Both plans will be submitted to the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing. Monitoring and compliance activities are already in place and are funded through the Community and Social Services budget. Miller Manor and The Maples are the only two properties within the Leeds Grenville public housing portfolio which have drinking water systems falling under the Drinking Water Quality Management Standard and developed by the Ministry of the Environment and Ontario’s water sector.

walk, starting from Crystal Palace, with registration at 9:45 a.m. In the past three years, this event has raised $28,000, said Bruce Hill, senior development manager with the Kidney Foundation of Canada, who looks after this area from his Ottawa office. Money raised from this event goes into the national research fund, but locally, there are many programs and initiatives that are taking place, like a fun day, hosted in the spring at the Smiths Falls Civitan Club where 85 people were in attendance. “If we can bring a smile to someone’s face, then it was worth it,� Hill said. “Hosting

events where dialysis dependent people can have a little fun, dance, socialize, that’s a big thing.� He also added that education is one of the top priorities, which includes alking to people about their personal history, family history, diets (which if kidney disease is prevalent, then a low sodium/salt/potassium diet is followed) and exercise. “Stats are pretty significant. One in 10 people have kidney disease and may not even know it.� For instance, in Smiths Falls with a population of about 9,000 people, 900 of whom could have kidney disease. In Perth, where there are about 6,000 people living, another

600 people may have kidney disease. That’s 1,500 people just in Perth and Smiths Falls alone. “There are five stages of kidney disease and the first four are silent,� Hill said. “You don’t know you have it until, bang, you’re on dialysis and your life has changed forever.� The easiest way to see is through a blood test. “The next time you’re at your doctor, ask him to check your kidney function. It’s a simple blood test,� Hill said, whose own father succumbed to kidney disease. People with diabetes are more susceptible to kidney disease, and people who have had a transplant are more susceptible to cancer, he said.

Take Back the Night march continues plight to end violence against women Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Bridge Street in Carleton Place was an uplifting scene on the evening of Sept. 19 when dozens of local residents and politicians came together to put a stop to violence against women. The occasion was Lanark County Interval Houseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (LCIH) seventh annual Take Back the Night march, which began in the park behind the Carleton Place Town Hall with a special ceremony to empower women who are victims of harassment, sexual abuse and assault. LCIH provides residential and shelter programs as well as outreach services and transitional support to women and children throughout Lanark County who are the victims of violence. Carleton Place mayor Wendy LeBlanc welcomed those gathered and remarked how she wished this event wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t needed in the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here to take back the night and I wish that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the case. I wish that there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t any (of these events) and we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to take back the night,â&#x20AC;? she stated. She noted that Carleton Place is a safe community with strong police and protective services â&#x20AC;&#x153;yet why is it that women, and maybe men as well, feel uncomfortable walking the streets at night?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;As the mayor, I should feel safe and somehow itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s engrained in me to walk quickly or look over my shoulder,â&#x20AC;? LeBlanc continued, adding that getting the message out that this is a safe community is about events such as Take Back the Night. Other local politicians on hand during the evening were Carleton Place councillors Doug Black and Jerry Flynn, Beckwith deputy reeve Sharon Mousseau, Beckwith councillor Brian Dowdall, as well as Montague Township reeve and Lanark County warden, Bill Dobson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Victimization against women must stop. It is a public health problem and a human rights issue, he said, urging people to step up and do their part to end the violence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;...If you see an incident, report it and make sure these incidents

are documented. We must change our environment to make our society equal for all genders.â&#x20AC;? Dobson said every member of the community has an obligation to â&#x20AC;&#x153;do our part to slow this process down and try to stop it.â&#x20AC;? He also commended LCIH for the work they continue to do. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is an emergency like any other emergency service and I appreciate the hard work that Interval House does,â&#x20AC;? Dobson stated. Victimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s words Providing a poignant moment prior to the start of the march, Tracy Kwissa, spoke to the audience about the experience of her daughter, Emily, who was unable to attend the event as she is away at college. Emily was sexually abused by her stepfather at a young age and has written a memoir, Am I Not. â&#x20AC;&#x153;...Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (Emily) still very young at only 20-years-old but has lived and her story is not for the faint of heart,â&#x20AC;? Tracy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Her stepfather began abusing her at three and before she was six-yearsold he raped her.â&#x20AC;? On July 20, 2004, what Tracy calls her â&#x20AC;&#x153;Independence Day,â&#x20AC;? she and her family packed up a few belongings and three dogs and left Colorado and her exhusband. She said the legal battle didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t end there and continues today. It has cost her thousands of dollars and â&#x20AC;&#x153;left us financially and emotionally bankrupt.â&#x20AC;? The latest setback came recently when www.lulu.com, which had published I Am Not online, took it down after Tracyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ex-husband claimed the book was full of lies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lulu gave up supporting otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s free speech and sided with an abuser,â&#x20AC;? she commented. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve given power to the abuser over the victim.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a shame and another example of injustice in our community,â&#x20AC;? noted LCIH executive director Erin Lee-Todd. Tracy said this issue generated a lot of media and since then, I Am Not is back in print. She acknowledged the support of LCIH over the last 10 years since moving to the area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;...Without them (LCIH), the battle to be free of our abuser would not have

been a victory,” she said. Tracy then read a statement provided by Emily, who said the cycle of sexual abuse needs to end. “We’re taught not to wear short skirts, low-cut shirts, tight jeans and not to wear our hair in ponytails because people can grab it and also not to wear it down because it can be seen as sexual,” Emily wrote. “...We’re told all of this when most sexual assaults aren’t committed by strangers...The night does not belong to us, we are strangers in the night. We need to take back our bodies and our place in it.” “Children should be able to go to bed without fearing the monster that lies, not in the closet, but outside their bedroom doors,” Emily continued. “Tonight, we do together what we’re too afraid to do alone...we are taking back the streets we have always been told were dangerous.” Lee-Todd thanked people for attending the event, despite the fact that each year she hopes LCIH doesn’t have to hold the march. She said the organization will continue its work to speak up for victims such as 27-year-old Amy Paul, who was found dead in an Osgoode field last week. “She was a sex worker. There was no press release about her missing...,” she

stated. “...We’re human beings first and Amy Paul deserves respect the same as everyone else, whether she was a sex worker or not.” The same week Paul’s body was found, the Fallowfield train/bus tragedy also occurred and while Lee-Todd acknowledged the loss from that incident, “in a week from now, will we still be hearing about the bus accident, which was horrible and horrific? But do you think we’ll hear about Amy Paul? Think about that and what you’re going to do to make a difference.” As Lee-Todd conducted a vigil and read names of women who lost their lives to due to violence, members of the crowd placed a rose in the Mississippi River to honour them. A rose was also cast into the water for Paul. “Today that woman was Amy but tomorrow it could be me. Tomorrow it could be any of you,” she said. “It’s important to remember and reflect. It’s important to honour these women as we walk the street.” The LCIH shelter remains full with a large waiting list, but Lee-Todd said that keeps her striving towards ending violence against women. She acknowledged the valuable partnerships LCIH has with the Ontario Provincial Police, local municipalities, as well as LGBT Lanark County, the HIV/AIDS Regional

Service and the Sexual Assault/Domestic Violence advisory, which have strengthened the organization. “I want to assure you that despite what’s happening in this horrible world that tries to divide us, LCIH is standing strong...we’re going to be solid and we’re going to move on,” she continued. “There is nothing that’s going to stop us in this community from ending violence against women. We will not be silent. We will continue to take these risks for the flowers floating in the water and for those women I see tonight who I haven’t seen in ages and it’s so good to see.” In the end, Lee-Todd issued a challenge to the community. If someone sees an incident taking place, report it and stand up to violence. “Challenge yourself and your neighbours, because if you don’t challenge someone, we’ll keep putting flowers in the water,” she concluded. Armed with special Take Back the Night cowbells, courtesy of gift bags provided by the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO) Occasional Local, residents then took to the streets in a united chant. The group marched down Bridge Street from the town hall before turning around and ending back at Read’s Book Shop. For more information on LCIH, visit www.lcih.org.

The keynote address will be presented by Angus McAllister, entitled â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Getting off the Dock â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Engaging Your Lake Community Into Actionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. McAllister is president of Fathom6 Research (formerly McAllister Opinion Research). He is a leading Canadian public opinion researcher who has surveyed public attitudes on environment issues in over 25 countries and tracked Canadian trends for nearly 20 years. Aside from his amazing depth of knowledge, McAlllister brings a great sense of humour to his presentations. The result is an informative, entertaining package of useful insights

that will provide significant value to understanding what works and what doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work in reaching and engaging people. Terry Rees, executive director of Federation of Ontario Cottagersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Associations (FOCA) will speak on â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The New Landscape in Ontario Lake Countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.

Eight weeks remaining in annual Canadian Aid for Chernobyl Shoeboxes for Seniors campaign News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The countdown is onâ&#x20AC;Ś thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only eight weeks remaining in the Shoeboxes for Seniors campaign for the Lanark, Leeds and Grenville and Kingston areas. Currently, 250 boxes are packed and ready to go. Campaign coordinator, Colleen Gray, is anticipating another 300 to 500 boxes will arrive at the drop off locations over the next two months. Gray stated that â&#x20AC;&#x153;typically we see a huge influx of filled boxes as well as bags of items arriving in the last two months of the campaign.â&#x20AC;? The Shoeboxes for Seniors campaign is in its 11th year of service to seniors living in Chernobyl. The program, which operates under Canadian Aid for Chernobyl, provides basic hygiene items, small house-

hold items and a large dose of kindness to the neediest individuals. The seniors receiving these care packages live very lonely and isolated lives in a state of poverty. The shoeboxes are hand-delivered to seniors on occasions such as birthdays, Seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Day, Invalidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day, Veteranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day and special anniversaries. They not only provide basic care items but bring home and joy into their lives. Participants may fill a shoebox or drop off essential hygiene items (toothbrushes, toothpaste, hand and body cream, deodorant, combs, brushes, hand soap, shampoo, razors, etc.), at any of the locations. Individuals are encouraged to fill just one box and together the goal can be reached.

Shoeboxes will be shipped to Chernobyl for distribution in early spring 2014. Drop off locations are: LeedsGrenville MPP Steve Clarkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office (Brockville); Community Home Support Lanark County (Smiths Falls and Perth); Kemptville and District Home Support Inc. (Kemptville); and any Community & Primary Health Care (CPHC) office. Tax receipts will be issued for those who include their name, address and the original receipt(s). Campaign completion date is Oct. 31, however donations of filled boxes, miscellaneous items and cash donations are also accepted throughout the year.

Special thanks goes out to the Federation of Ontario Cottagersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Associations for their continued generous support of this event. Please

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

Conservative energy plan doesn’t make sense DEAR EDITOR: In his article on energy policy in the EMC Sept. 19, the Conservative MPP from Leeds- Grenville tells us to see the Tories affordable energy plan in their website. The so-called plan is not only not affordable, it does not make sense. First of all, everybody knows that the cheapest and fastest way to produce energy is through conservation and there is not one word about conservation in their program. Secondly, the Tories state that nuclear will be the key future source of Ontario’s basic energy supply. However, they want people to have a choice in their electricity

suppliers so we will all check off who our supplier will be when we receive our electricity bill. No nuclear company would spend billions of dollars building nuclear plants when it knows that nuclear power will be more expensive than renewable energy and there would be no customers for its power. This would mean that, under a Tory government, there would be electricity shortages and we would be at the mercy of other jurisdictions when we would have to purchase power from them.

COMMENTARY Find the stars in your community Editorials – On a regular basis, this newspaper profiles the positive contributions youth are making in the Lanark, Leeds and Grenville area and it’s time for those actions to be showcased on a broader scale. It’s time once again to consider nominating a deserving youth for the 2013 Ontario Junior Citizen of the Year Award, offered annually by the Ontario Community Newspaper Association (OCNA), of which this newspaper is a member, and sponsored by Direct Energy and TD Bank Group. One doesn’t have to look far to see youth impacting their communities in inspiring ways. Take a look on the sports field, students helping out others in school or at church. Any resident of Ontario, aged six to 17 (who is six but no older than 17 by Nov. 30, 2013) can be nominated in four different categories, including: those involved in a worthwhile service; a young person who contributes to their community while living with a physical or psychological limitation; kids who go above and beyond to make life better for others over and above what would normally be expected of them; and an individual who has done a heroic act over the past year. According to the OCNA, up to 12 nominees will be chosen with the final recipients of the provincial award to appear at a gala in spring 2014. Help us pay tribute to the youth who will shape our communities into the future. Youth nominated for the honour will be personally presented with a certificate of recognitions and their contributions will be showcased in this newspaper. The deadline for nominations is Nov. 30. Forms are available online at www.ocna.org/juniorcitizen or by calling the OCNA at 905-639-8720 ext. 221.

Scratch proved her worth as a house cat on the farm Lifestyle – As far as Mother was concerned, there were no “ifs, ands, or buts” about it when it came to having pets in the house. They belonged in the barn, and that’s all there was to it. The barn cats had litters, it seemed to me back then, every time the weather changed. And every time a new batch of kittens came on the scene, I begged Mother to let me keep at least one in the house for a pet. I promised I would look after it. It would never wander through the rooms, and I would feed it myself, so there would be no spots on the kitchen floor, which Mother kept as clean as a whistle. “No cats in the house” she would say again! And so I would have to play with them in the barns, where they were allowed to wander freely, some in the cow byre, some in the stable, and often one or two in where Father kept the sheep. I would make sure they all had fresh milk every day, and of course, I gave

them all names. My brother Emerson said giving barn cats names was just about the craziest idea he ever heard of...especially when there were so many. I paid him no heed! They came in all colours, but mostly they were grey or black with white spots. And then one batch produced one that was golden brown with white around its neck, and a pure white tail. Emerson said it looked like its mother had been scared by a fox, whatever that meant. To me, it was the most beautiful kitten I had ever seen. But it didn’t look like its mother had much love for it. To me it always seemed to be pushed aside, and away from the other kittens. And it got thinner and thinner. Emerson said it wasn’t long for this world, and the best thing that could happen to it was to put it in a grain sack and take to the Bonnechere! Needless to say that sent me into fits of crying and I begged Mother to let me keep it in the house until it had grown a bit. I even promised to Vice President & Regional Publisher Mike Mount mmount@perfprint.ca 613-283-3182, ext. 104

Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

knit an extra dishcloth without being asked, a task I likened to cleaning the outhouse! Finally, Mother relented. It would have to be kept in a box at night. I would have to take it outside to “do its business”, and it would only be in the house until it was able to fend for itself out in the barn. I was so happy, and that night I printed in my diary that for the first time ever, I was allowed to have a baby kitten in the house! I called it Scratch...because it loved to scratch on the side of the cardboard box which was its home through the night. And it grew and flourished. How Scratch grew! And every day Mother would warn me

that soon it would have to join the other cats in the barn. The litter was born early in the fall, and as the nights got colder, I was eternally grateful that Scratch was in a warm spot to sleep. Just before I went to bed every night I took Scratch outside and then put her into the cardboard box. She was growing so fast with my tender love and care that soon she would outgrow her night bed. And then one morning, even before I was out of bed, I heard Mother let a scream out of her that I was sure could be heard across the 20acre field. I tore downstairs, not knowing what to expect. And there was Scratch, sound asleep outside the box, and beside her, half mutilated, were two very dead mice! Now, if there was anything Mother hated more than the common house fly or pet animals in the house, it was a mouse! She was sure they carried germs. It wasn’t so much that she was afraid of them; it was just that she thought they

were just about the dirtiest critters on earth! And there was little hope of keeping them out of the house, in spite of the countless traps spaced around the floor. Well, it was obvious how the mice had come to meet their maker. Scratch had done them in, that was obvious. And that’s what changed Mother’s mind about having a pet in the house! Scratch, as long as she was ‘earning her keep’ was allowed to spend the nights in the cardboard box in the kitchen. She spent most of the winter there, that year. But the day came when Scratch herself wanted to be out in the barns. She had grown full size, and remained the only cat with the odd colouring, and she sneaked around unheard and ignored the other cats completely. And when I saw that she much preferred the hen house over the cow byre, I wondered if there was more truth than poetry to what Emerson claimed...maybe there was a bit of fox-blood running through her veins. • 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.

Among the advantages of quads are their cargo-towing capacity and the fact that they tend to be lighter weight and more agile than UTVs, which translates into less of an impact on lawns and other terrain. ATVs are also generally less expensive than UTVs. Their limitations however, lie in the fact that most are intended for one driver, though two-person models are available, and that they provide limited space for carrying cargo.

If you’re looking for a vehicle for a specific task, UTVs are a good choice because of the large number of implements and attachments available.

Hypnotist Trevour Strudwick, above, will headline Temple’s Sugar Bush’s Halloween party Oct. 25. In addition to a full-length hypnotist presentation, Strudwick will also offer tarot card readings. Guests are invited to dance the night away following the show and prizes for best male and female costume will be handed out.

or tow. They’ve usually got a rear cargo hold which means that trailers are not necessary to carry additional equipment. In general, they are bigger, sturdier machines, and there’s room for a passenger to ride comfortably alongside the driver. UTVs also offer safety features that ATV models lack, including rollover enclosures and seatbelts.

Work vehicles fall under two categories—All Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) and Utility Task Vehicles (UTVs) or side-by-sides. ATVs were the first to come onto the market. Also known as quads, they come in 2WD and 4WD models, and offer a range of options including electronic power steering (EPS), front and rear hydraulic disc brakes, and electronic fuel injection (EFI), to name a few.

REGIONAL NEWS

Community bands together for teen left paralyzed following car accident Community – A recent accident involving a young man who resides in the community of Seeley’s Bay has impacted many and reminds us how quickly life can throw us a curve ball and the importance of banding together and helping those in need. Zach Elliott had just turned 18 and was graduating from Rideau District High School with a dream of becoming a commercial pilot, and on June 13, he was involved in a tragic car accident and has been left paralyzed from the waist down. There will be a community event on Oct. 12 where a dance, complete with a live and silent auction will take place to help raise funds needed to help Elliott and his family on his road to recovery. Elliott is well known in the area. To many he may only be known as the extremely tall, polite, young lad with a big smile who has worked behind the meat counter at the local store for the last three years. However there is so much more to Elliott. He was an honor student at Rideau District High School in Elgin, he had a love for music early on and played the drums and guitar in a band with several other local young lads from high school. His

Zach Elliott love for music was carried on when he joined the Shiloh Church and started playing at services. But for those of us that know him best it was his sense of family, and his love of flying that he learned from his grandfather. Before getting his driver’s license at age 16, Elliott had already accomplished something that many of us would never be able to do; he clocked enough flying hours and got his recreational pilot’s license. Then in April, 2013, while still 17-years-old, he obtained his private pilot’s license. Prior to the accident he had just started working at the Kingston Airport as the line crew and he had done some aerial photography for the Kingston Fun Flyers.

Elliott is a determined young man and an inspiration for many, his faith keeps him strong and he hopes if possible to be the first paraplegic commercial pilot in Canada. The community of Seeley’s Bay wants to stand behind this young man and help reach his goal. Currently Elliott is in Saint Mary’s of the Lake rehabilitation hospital in Kingston and will be faced with months of hard work before being able to come home and regain his life. He and his family will require assistance with this and our goal as a community is to help offset any additional costs the Elliotts will have. Organizers of the event are asking local businesses, and community members for your support to help make this event a success, donations of new auction able items/services or cash will help make this happen. Donations for this event can be given to any member of the organizing committee and should be made by Oct. 5. For more information or to make a donation email Jan Holland at holland@bell. net or call 613-387-3750 or Nicole Peters at petersn@ outlook.com or call 613-9290042. Submitted by the organizing committee.

Canadian Cancer Society introduces $100 cost for transportation service News – To meet the challenge of growing demand and rising costs, the Canadian Cancer Society will begin charging a $100 registration fee for new patients in Ontario who register with the Society’s transportation service after Oct. 1. Since the 1950s, the Society has provided transportation to patients in Ontario who have no other way of getting to cancer treatment. The one-time registration fee will apply to new patients only and will help ensure the Society is able to continue helping patients with rides. The decision was made based on the changing landscape of cancer. Ontario’s population is growing and aging, which means that the number of new cancer cases continues to rise and with it, the number of patients needing help to get to treatment. The price of gas and other costs have risen significantly over the years while the need for transportation grows. “The Canadian Cancer Society is committed to providing transportation but the service is expensive — we spend more than $6 million a year on the program and we’ve seen almost a 20 per cent increase in the number of patients needing rides in one year alone,” says

Tanya Nixon, Senior Manager, Transportation, Canadian Cancer Society. “This was a difficult but necessary decision to ensure the future of our transportation service so that we can continue to help cancer patients get to treatment.” “More people than ever need our transportation service,” says Nixon. “In addition, we are challenged by an environment in which resources have become scarce both in terms of fundraising and volunteer recruitment. Like all charities, we must make our dollars go further.” John Buchan of Penetanguishene is a volunteer driver who has been driving patients from all over Simcoe County to and from appointments in Toronto, Barrie, Orillia and elsewhere for 10 years. “Cancer patients and their families are already dealing with a lot of stress without worrying how they’re going to get to and from their treatments. As a driver, I know how vital this program is for helping patients who have no other way to get to appointments,” says Buchan, who is also a member of the Society’s provincial Transportation Steering Committee. “I support this registration fee because it means we’ll be able

to continue helping cancer patients with rides now and in the future.” The transportation service is offered province-wide and meets the needs of all kinds of patients who have any type of cancer and a range of treatment needs of varying duration. Some patients have no access to public transit and no other means of getting to treatment and many find the cost of alternative transportation, such as taxis, and parking prohibitive. Typically, a registered patient uses the Society’s transportation service 10 to 17 times on one-way trips during the course of their treatment. New patients who may face financial hardship may be eligible for assistance through our compassionate program. The Society is committed to ensuring that no patient is denied a ride due to their inability to pay the entire registration fee. Last year volunteer drivers helped 15,500 patients in Ontario and drove more than 12 million kilometres, a distance that is equivalent to driving around the world almost 300 times. For more information about the change to the transportation program, visit Frequently Asked Questions on cancer.ca.

Tips to effectively close up cottage for the season Housing starts for August up slightly over last year Lifestyle – When it comes to closing up the cottage, every cottage owner has their own checklist and methods but it’s useful to review some best practises and perhaps add a few additional tasks to your to-do list to make sure that next spring, there aren’t any unwelcome surprises. In Canada, the top causes of cottage damage are wind and water. Fortunately, the risk of damage can be reduced by taking a few simple steps at the end of the season. “There are a few main areas to focus on when closing up the cottage before an Ontario winter hits,” says Phil Dorner, president of the Ontario Real Estate Association. “By tailoring your to-do list to take care of the most important areas first, you will be well on your way to ensuring a smooth winter and an easier time, come spring,” adds Dorner. Here are the most important tasks to take care of at the cottage this fall: • Drain the pipes: Make sure all water is removed by opening all taps

and valves. If your cottage is not winterized, the Canada Safety Council recommends filling supply pipes with non-toxic anti-freeze and wrapping pipes at key junction points to help protect against the cold. • Inspect your roof: A leaky roof can cause a lot of water-damage. Replace any missing or broken shingles. Make sure trees are trimmed so that wind and snow do not cause them to damage your cottage. • Electricity: If shutting the electricity off completely, Hydro One recommends turning off all appliances, the water heater and electrical room heaters before turning off the main switch at the electrical panel. If leaving your electricity on (for a security system or lighting) turn off the power supply to your major appliances at your main panel and shut off the power to any space heaters. • Fireplace and woodstove: Make sure your fireplace damper is closed to prevent animals from getting in. Block off the flues, stovepipes and chimneys. Chimneys from fireplaces

or woodstoves should be professionally checked to ensure they don’t have hazardous amounts of creosote. • Empty refrigerator and cupboards: Clean and defrost the fridge, leaving the door open to keep it fresh. Pack up the cupboards, including dry food and canned goods. • Walk through: Make sure that all utilities and appliances are unplugged and any potential fire hazards are removed (old newspapers, chemicals, etc.)

“Once you’ve taken care of the most important tasks, you will be able to turn your attention to the remaining cleaning and packing up, and of course the final goodbye,” says Dorner. If possible, have a neighbour or friend check up on your place periodically throughout the winter, this will provide some additional peace of mind. Submitted by the Ontario Real Estate Association.

Lifestyle – Housing starts in the Ontario region were trending at 59,187 units in August, compared to 58,292 in July, according to Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC). The trend is a six-month moving average of the monthly seasonally adjusted annual rates of housing starts. “The trend in Ontario new home construction edged higher for a second consecutive month in Ontario – stabilizing in the 55,000 to 60,000 SAAR starts range in recent months. Stability in resale market conditions very early this year combined with a gradual improvement in the job market has halted the slide in residential starts witnessed between the spring of last year and spring of 2013,” said Ted Tsiakopoulos, CMHC’s Ontario regional economist. CMHC uses the trend measure as a complement to the monthly SAAR of housing starts to account for considerable swings in monthly estimates and obtain a more complete picture of the state of the housing market. In some sit-

uations, analyzing only SAAR data can be misleading in some markets, as they are largely driven by the multiples segment of the markets which can be quite variable from one month to the next. The standalone monthly SAAR was 67,767 units in August, up from 59,372 units in July. Row and backlog of apartment units breaking ground boosted activity while single and semi detached construction eased in August. Growth in construction was broad based with communities in and outside of the greater Toronto area posting increases. For the year ending August, Ontario urban starts are down 26 per cent from this time last year. As Canada’s national housing agency, CMHC draws on more than 65 years of experience to help Canadians access a variety of quality, environmentally sustainable and affordable housing solutions.

was seven and his father later married Ruth Crawford Seeger, a now recognized, notable modernist composer and also a lover of folk music. Music was a staple in the Seeger home as Pete’s four stepsiblings from his father’s second marriage all went on to also become folk musicians including Peggy, who was married for many years to British folk singer/activist Ewan MacColl (writer of ‘The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face’). Pete’s stepbrother Mike Seeger went on to form the New Lost City Ramblers. From these early musical beginnings Pete first learned the ukelele by himself and began entertaining community and his classmates with popular songs of the day and traditional folk tunes. In 1936, Pete, while travelling with his father and stepmother chanced on the Mountain Dance & Folk Festival outside Asheville, North Carolina where he heard the five-string banjo for the first time and the family later acknowledged this time as their “conversion experience” to folk styles of music. It was here Seeger apparently first picked up his early beginnings of learning the five-string banjo from festival organizer Bascom Lunsford and, in the fall, taking one with him when he headed off to Harvard on a scholarship. That banjo would become often his instrument of choice later, wherever he played; so often for little money, at rallies, community meetings, across the country for one of his many admirable causes. By 1948, he’d developed his own banjo that had an extra long neck, longer than a bass guitar by three frets which would become known as the Seeger banjo. It wasn’t until the late ‘50s that he started accompanying himself with the 12-string guitar. Pete’s skilled himself in the conscientious use of music to empower, encourage, enlighten and remind us of our past. We must remember he became quite involved in folk music at a time when folk music found a voice within politics, especially around the ideology – exploring university campuses. Pete gradually became active, joining the Young Communist League prior to the Second World War. His marks suffering, he lost his scholarship, dropping out in 1938. He’d developed a real knack for performing with that ukelele which he further polished via a summer job touring New York State with the Vagabond Puppeteers. Through the summer’s travel, shared meals and ongoing discussions with the rural families they’d play for, Pete’s commitment to activism was further nurtured, recognizing and learning to exploit his gifts of utilizing music in creative ways to promote solidarity as a mighty power for the common man, whether through unions, ra-

cial equality marches, parades or anti-war activities; organizing to bring about equality. Through his father’s contact he got a job in Washington, DC with Alan Lomax who was assistant in charge of the Archive of American Folk Song for the Library of Congress. Lomax had previously travelled with his father John Lomax, taking some primitive recording equipment into the fields and across the country to record what were then called “race” and “hillbilly” types of music for archive purposes. Now known as the ‘Field Recordings’ they brought musicians like Lead Belly, Woody Guthrie, Muddy Waters, and Jelly Roll Morton to the American public, many becoming great blues, jazz and folk players of their country. Alan had a radio show ‘Back Where I Come From’ and encouraged Pete to perform, joining musicians like Lead Belly, Woody Guthrie, Burl Ives and Josh White in the then unique, racially integrated cast. This was during the Second World War. Their show once performed a command performance at the White House in 1941, arranged by Eleanor Roosevelt, entitled ‘An Evening of Songs for American Soldiers’. Hard to believe today but, due to the integrated cast it was not aired nationally. Pete’s activism further evolved into The Almanac Singers, which Seeger co-founded in 1941 with Millard Lampell and Arkansas singer and activist Lee Hays. They were a topical group, designed to function as a singing newspaper, promoting the industrial unionization movement, racial and religious inclusion as well as other progressive causes. Its personnel included, at various times: Woody Guthrie, Bess Lomax Hawes, Sis Cunningham, Josh White and Sam Gary. As a controversial Almanac singer, the 21-year-old Seeger performed under the stage name Pete Bowers to avoid compromising his father’s government career. Due to their political leanings, the Almanac Singers were eventually blacklisted and through fear of retribution, presenters refused to hire them. Pete took to the rails for a while with Woody Guthrie, learning firsthand the plight of the migrant workers in California and the south where he lent his musical support wherever possible and has continued to do so, ever since. Pete was in the US Army first as an aircraft mechanic and later as performer for the troops. In 1950 the Almanac Singers were reformed as The Weavers and had a string of hits on the popular hit parade such as ‘On Top of Old Smokey’ – a Lead Belly song, ‘Goodnight Irene’, which was 13 weeks at number one, ‘So Long, Been Good to Know You’ (Woody Guthrie), ‘Kisses Sweeter Than

Wine’ and ‘Wimoweh’, to name a few. They were playing the best halls and clubs until 1953 when they were blacklisted, due to the infamous MacCarthy era. A reunion was chanced in 1955 to what turned out to be a sold-out performance at Carnegie Hall and a tour where concerts were recorded and large sales realized. Pete says he broke company with The Weavers because the rest were willing to sign with a tobacco sponsor and out of principle, Pete refused. I could go on for days with various stories about this remarkable man. He built his family’s own log home in the woods of upper New York State and for quite a long time had no hydro, running water or phone...an early hippy. He reemerged in the ‘60s as a protest singer, utilizing his songs such as ‘Where Have All the Flowers Gone’ or ‘If I Had a Hammer’, these songs copied and made famous by many other musicians. He was seen in the movie of 2007 still cutting and splitting his own firewood. He acknowledges it was only his wife’s ongoing support that allowed him to carry on. His activism has not stopped. He was a long time supporter and promoter of the now successful clean up of the Hudson River called the Clearwater Project. Through a long range vision of utilizing a large sailing ship that would sail up and down the Hudson, teach students, fundraise, they connected enough caring people to make enough noise to cause congress to pass laws, all for the importance of clean water. In the film, he explains his changing the word ‘will’ from the original spiritual to the more sing-able ‘shall’ in one of his most heard songs, ‘We Shall Overcome’. The power of song carries on and at 94, Pete’s still getting his message out there. In October 2011, he helped with an Occupy Wall Street march. This Grammy Award winner just keeps going.

Lifestyle – I just got back from visiting my folks, just outside Orillia. They’re 88 years young now and still able to help one another live in their own home so I try to get over to spend a few days with them each month to hopefully brighten their day, take them where they need to go and share those family stories you never quite got around to before. We are blessed to have my sister Jan and family living close to them to provide lots of support. This article was hatched there as my Dad usually has some favourite music on and one day it was a wonderful CD my brother Drew had compiled for them of Pete Seeger music. It reminded me of the many stories I’d read of Seeger over the years and the tremendous respect I’d developed for this principled, ‘Renaissance’ man – musician, songwriter, activist, now 94, widowed this summer, losing Toshi after 70 years of marriage. Again, thanks to our family musicologist, my brother Drew, my folks and I pulled out and watched a wonderful DVD called ‘Pete Seeger – The Power of Song’ (2007) which Drew had given copies to both them and myself last Christmas. It was my second time through it and I’ll continue to pull it out and watch every once in a while because of the clips of him at so many monumental events in time leading a crowd to sing. Woody Guthrie’s son, Arlo Guthrie quips somewhere, how gifted Pete is in the way he can lead an audience to sing along with him. I cannot recommend it enough and thought I’d share a bit about this remarkable man. Pete Seeger personifies of the power of song. Pete Seeger was born May 3, 1919 in New York into a musical family. His father was a Harvard grad, a musicologist who, in 1912, developed the first music program at University of California, in Berkeley and his mother was a concert violinist who later taught at Juilliard. When Pete was 18-months-old his parents and two older brothers headed out in a homemade trailer caravan type vehicle to “bring musical uplift to the working people in the American South”. Their pretentious intention was to present classical music throughout the south but within a short time on the road his father was introduced to and became enthralled with the local Americana music played in the hills on banjos, guitars, fiddles and jugs, a far cry from their classical roots. The elder Seeger later went on to work to help shape the Archives of Folk Music in Washington DC. It’s hard to believe, in our current time of political apathy there was a time when people gathered, discussed, argued, debated and marched for the issues of the day. We take for granted what principles of equal opportunity, racial equality, peace and freedoms were fought for within his (and my) lifetime. Hard to believe today that Pete’s father would be forced to leave his employ at the University of California for being a Pacifist, during the First World War. We’ve come a long way...or have we? His parents divorced when he

Athletesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; pay continues to soar into the stratosphere alleged use of performance enhancing drugs. He wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be paid for the period of his suspension, should it be upheld by an independent arbitrator. The appeal hearing is scheduled to begin Sept. 30. Yes, money and top-flight athletes go hand in hand and that is a major topic of discussion among people today, just as it was when Ruth was busily re-writing the MLB batting record book in the 1920s and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;30s. For fans of team sports the main focus is the season, the playoff or pennant races and ultimately, hopefully, a championship for their favourite team or teams. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a Detroit Tigersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fan. At this writing the ball club is on the verge of a third straight American League (AL) Central Division championship. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hopeful of another strong playoff showing. Tigers rolled to the AL Pennant in 2012 before bombing in the World Series, losing four straight to San Francisco Giants, the National League titlists. The National Hockey League (NHL) campaign is just around the corner â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a full season too this time â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and locally all eyes are on the Ottawa Senators. Fans are anxious to see how Sens will perform without long-time captain and talisman Daniel Alfredsson? Or at the very least Ottawa fans will be anticipating

the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first meeting with the Detroit Red Wings, Alfieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new team. That comes up Oct. 23 in the Motor City. The clubs are now in the same division and will face-off four times during the campaign. Despite the fact fans like me enjoy following their team(s) day-to-day throughout the various seasons it is difficult for most of us to relate to what athletes today are being paid. Only a tiny fraction of people ever achieve such riches! Salaries incredible Being paid so handsomely to play a game doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t compute for most of us. But clearly it does when the various leagues and their member teams consider the bottom line, which is making money. Because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a Tigersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fan I will focus on them as one good example of massive player salaries. In 2008 slugger Miguel Cabrera inked what was then the richest contract in team history,

SAVE up to $3,000

an eight-year $153m pact. Certainly if anyone warrants that kind of money, Cabrera does. At age 30 he has quickly overtaken the biggest run producers in MLB history. Last year the Detroit third baseman won the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Triple Crownâ&#x20AC;? which goes to a player who combines the highest batting average with the most home runs and the highest runs batted in total. His award was the first in 45 years. The previous Major Leaguer to achieve the rare honour was former Boston Red Sox star Carl Yastrzemski in 1967, Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Centennial Year. Not surprisingly, with two years left in his current deal, Tigersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; brass has already begun talks with the Venezuelan-born Cabrera about a contract extension. Cabrera isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the highest paid player on the Detroit roster however. Far from it in fact! Power hitter Prince Fielder set

Striking it rich As the new European soccer season began a few weeks ago, Real Madrid completed the highest ever transfer deal in world football history. They signed Welsh midfielder Gareth Bale from London side Tottenham Hotspur of the EPL for â&#x201A;Ź100m ($140 million CDN). That is only the transfer fee paid to Tottenham! The Madrid soccer giants will also have to pay Bale a reported ÂŁ256,000 per week ($404,000 CDN).

Baseball. Internet returns alone have boosted baseball earnings in North America to the highest mark in the history of the sport. On the global sports stage nothing can knock soccer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or football as it is called in most of the world â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from the top rung. Soccer, which is often referred to as â&#x20AC;&#x153;the World Gameâ&#x20AC;?, is No. 1. But outside of a handful of teams led by Spainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Real Madrid, Manchester United of the English Premier League (EPL) and Barcelona, also of the Spanish La Liga, most teams are struggling to keep their heads above water. That is mainly due to ridiculously inflated player salaries.

a new team record in January 2012 when he inked a nine-year, $214m deal. Fielder, son of former Toronto Blue Jaysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; slugger Cecil Fielder, has played well although his home run production has tailed off. The distinction of the largest contract for a pitcher in MLB history belongs to current Tigersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ace Justin Verlander. He agreed (who wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t) to a seven-year, $180m contract prior to this season. Verlander, who won the prestigious Cy Young Award and the AL Most Valuable Player in 2011, has struggled somewhat this season however. Tigersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; management and fans feel he is so competitive that he may be over trying in an effort to live up to the hype. But despite being down in victories his overall pitching statistics remain among the best in the AL as this regular season wraps up. The long campaign ends Sunday with the playoffs starting the first week of October. I have not used the term â&#x20AC;&#x153;earnedâ&#x20AC;? to describe athletesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; pay. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe anyone can really earn such inflated salaries. Still, if there is any sport that can afford to pay such ridiculous amounts to its players, it is revenue rich Major League

Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; In 1930 baseball legend Babe Ruth was under public scrutiny due to his high salary. After making $70,000 each of the previous three seasons the New York Yankeesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sensation had his pay packet increased by another ten grand. The Great Depression was in full swing at the time and with jobs at a premium people were lining up daily to eat at soup kitchens. Terrible times, so little wonder the American public were envious of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Bambino.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; In todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s terms his 1930 salary would be worth approximately $1.1 million. At the time it was considered â&#x20AC;&#x153;astonishing!â&#x20AC;? Ruth was never stuck for words and he had a quick response when a reporter asked how he could justify making $80,000 to play baseball when then US President Herbert Hoover was paid $75,000 annually. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know, but I had a better year than Hoover,â&#x20AC;? he replied. Today another Yankeesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; superstar Alex Rodriguez is taking home a cool $32 million (m) per season. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eight times the pay of current American President Barack Obama. Of course A-Rodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pay cheque may only last as long as his current appeal of a 211 game suspension imposed recently by Major League Baseball (MLB) for his

Overwhelming response for 2014 Tankard volunteers Sports – The Ottawa Valley is noted for its volunteer spirit and that spirit is certainly shining brightly in the lead-up to the Smiths Falls Dominion Tankard 2014 Ontario Men’s Curling Championship. The host committee has already achieved its goal of 180 volunteers for the prestigious men’s curling event, which will take place Jan. 27 to Feb. 2 at the Smiths Falls Memorial Community Centre. “Once again, the people of Smiths Falls and the surrounding areas have shown their generosity and spirit by coming forth to volunteer their time and enthusiasm to the upcoming Tankard,” says Nancy Yunker who is co-ordinating the slate of volunteers. “It did not take long at all to get our needed 180 volunteers.” While the majority of the volunteers are from the Smiths Falls area, people are also offering their time and talents from neighbouring communities like Perth, Carleton Place and Richmond. The volunteer base includes both curlers and non-curlers. “They are just people who want to be part of the excitement and showcase Smiths Falls as a place that can host a provincial event,” notes Agnes McVeety, who co-chairs the host committee with Paul Howard. Leonard LeBlanc who lives in the Smiths Falls area is one of those individuals. His wife Lois is a member of the host Smiths Falls Curling and Squash Club and he enjoys watching the sport. “I think it is just going to be a great thing for the town,” he states. Volunteers will be taking

on a wide variety of roles with the Dominion Tankard. These range from preparing and serving food in the “Lockmaster’s House” in the upper hall of the community centre during the event to selling 50/50 tickets to driving teams to assisting with the timing of the games to security and parking. Volunteers will be notified shortly as to what role they will be assuming. Some volunteers, such as those involved with marketing and sponsorship and planning the opening and closing ceremonies for the Dominion Tankard, have already been hard at work for several months. Each volunteer has paid $125 with that money going towards the purchase of a jacket and golf shirt, which they will wear during the event. Volunteers will also have the opportunity during a pep rally on Sunday, Jan. 26 to curl on the championship ice at the Memorial Community Centre. Later that day, there will be a meet and greet in the Lockmaster’s House involving volunteers, sponsors and members of the 11 elite men’s curling teams in Ontario who will be vying at the Dominion Tankard for the right to compete at the national level in the 2014 Tim Hortons Brier in Kamloops, B.C. McVeety cannot stress enough the important role that volunteers play in an endeavour of this calibre. “They are invaluable and the key to providing a successful event,” she says. Additional information on the 2014 Dominion Tankard can be obtained by visiting www.thedominiontankard2014.ca or contacting 613-812-3372.

Gordie Tapp to perform at Studio Theatre By EMILIE MUST

Famous stand-up comic and country musician, Gordie Tapp, 91, will be performing at Perth’s Studio Theatre, 63 Gore St. East on Saturday, Oct. 5 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $30 to see Canada’s beloved country star. Debbie Bayshaw will also be performing a tribute to Cousin Minnie Pearl along with Arlene Quinn and Rodger Coulombe. Tapp has performed for 75 years and was in the television industry for 59 years. He was the star of the hit television show “Hee Haw” for more than 25 years, where he performed Cousin Clem along with other characters throughout the years.

Tapp later went on to work with the biggest television networks in Canada and the USA; ABC, NBC, and CBC. Tapp has won numerous

GORDIE TAPP

awards along with the Queen’s Jubilee Medal, the Order of Canada, Ontario and Saskatchewan. This will be his first time performing in Perth and he will be doing comedy, playing a few songs, and “talking about the business and the people he has worked with,” he said in an interview. Tapp has worked with the biggest names in comedy and in country music including Johnny Cash, Perry Como, and Bob

Hope. He plays the harmonica, guitar, and the banjo. Tapp says his favourite instrument is the five-string banjo; even though he is best a playing the guitar. Tapp didn’t always dream of becoming a country star. He said he was working on a jazz show when one day the show’s producer asked him to emcee for a country show. He agreed to keep up the act when he was given a raise. When asked about retirement he said, “If I get a chance to entertain, I’m going to entertain.” The Perth show is the second in a five-show tour ending Dec. 1. Before this tour began, he spent three days in Mont Tremblant performing for the Cree Nations people. Tickets can be purchased now by visiting 67 Foster St. in Perth, by phoning Shadowfax at (613)267-6817, or visit online at www. shadowfax.on.ca.

Still, the highest earning soccer players don’t come close to the best paid athletes in North American sports, unless you include the endorsement deals for a select few such as former English star David Beckham and Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo. The National Football League and National Basketball Association in the U.S. also pay massive money for their top stars. Of course the real beneficiary of the Bale to Madrid arrangement is Tottenham. Sure, they lose a player who won both top awards in the EPL last season. But fearing a Bale exit they signed seven new players in the off season for a combined £115m. The transfer money from Real Madrid basically covers their signing spree. Oh yes, the 100 highest earning athletes in the world (according to Forbes Magazine) include 27 MLB players. Rodriguez at $32 million leads the baseball world. But he’s No. 18 on the overall list. Of the top 10 sports

is the demand for “customization” in today’s society. People are used to a wide variety of choices in every aspect of their lives, posing challenges for both businessmen and educators struggling to meet the needs of clients and students. “You can now go into a coffee shop these days and (instead of a basic coffee) order that half decaf, tall and skinny latté,” she said. “People can also do iPod purchasing where you can buy just the one song you really want. Again you are expecting customization through technology.” The demand for customized solutions is reaching into the school system as well, she said. Parents are now expecting an almost “private-school” level of attention for their children within the public school system, something which cannot be done with available resources. She believes that this is a trend teachers should be aware of as they work to meet

earners, five are Americans. Soccer’s Beckham ($47m) qualifies for the list despite announcing his retirement this past spring. He ranks eighth. The top five are led by golfer Tiger Woods ($78m), followed by tennis star Roger Federer ($71.5m), NBA stars Kobe Bryant ($61.9m) and LeBron James ($59.8m) with New Orleans Saints’ quarterback Drew Brees ($51m) rounding out the select list. The top 100 play 11 different sports with baseball first (27). There are 21 NBA players on the chart, 13 NFLers and 12 soccer stars. A total of 23 countries are represented on the elite roll. Not surprisingly 63 Americans are among the top 100 sports wage earners. Clearly they won’t be holding a tag day for the recently embattled Mr. Woods based on these numbers. All things considered it still totally boggles the mind! If you have a comment or question for Jeff Maguire he can be reached by email at: jeffrey.maguire@rogers. com.

video games has changed the way people think and become engaged with issues, she said. “It’s not just about video games that people are playing,” she said. “People are using games for learning as well, and trying to make learning a little more interactive and fun.” “The larger trend is about the need to be amused. People have so much stimulation at their fingertips right now that it is adjusting our expectations and our attitudes about what will engage us,” Buckner added.

around 75 mph. I took it in to a local Nissan dealer and they attributed the noise to the tires which had been replaced the year previous but did not make this noise when they were first installed. I had them rebalanced twice to no avail. When I returned to Ottawa, I had the front discs and brakes pads replaced because one disc was warped. This hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cured the front end noise and it still persists and the dealer still blames the tires. I suspect the wheel bearings again as the noise is similar to the previous one. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had other bearing failures on other SUVs and the noise is similar. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve also had a four-wheel alignment done with the same result, no change. Any insight would be appreciated.â&#x20AC;? Peter With regards to fuel mileage, the USâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s EPA (the only mileage rating source to use until NRCan gets the Canadian specs in line in 2014) rates your FX35 at 15 mpg city and 20 mpg highway (US gallon) so your mileage while lower than it was, is still up to snuff. According to Nissan/Infinitiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s schedules the spark plugs arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t due for replacement until 168,000 km, but this is a very ambitious projection of how long the platinum tipped plugs will last. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d recommend having the plugs removed for inspection and having them all replaced if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re worn. Dirty air filters are the number one non-driver cause of poor fuel mileage. Also, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t discount the possibility that the fuel you purchased might have changed in formulation between the first and subsequent road-trips. Gasoline producers are adding more and more ethanol (ethyl alcohol) to their fuels with the US feds pushing for more use of E15 blends (15 per cent ethanol) and this can cause a drop in fuel economy. An easy test to distinguish between tire noise and wheel bearing noise is to gently (and safely) swerve the vehicle left and right while driving at lower highway speeds when the noise is noticeable (no wide swings or sudden moves are required). If the noise changes noticeably when swerving to one side or the other, then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most likely a front wheel bearing at fault. If not, it could be caused by tires, a rear wheel bearing, or something else. To check the tires you could try having them rotated and then road test the

Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Good Morning, I am a big fan of your articles. I grew up with a father that flipped cars like dimes and my spouseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hobby is old cars. We were sitting around having coffee the other day and my dad says to the spouse, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do you think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bad for my car if I turn the engine off and then put my van in park?â&#x20AC;? (Of course he asks the â&#x20AC;&#x153;guyâ&#x20AC;?!) Spouse says no problem, I say problem. So we now have a friendly gentlemanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bet going on and I decided to ask the expert! It would be very much appreciated if you could end this little tiff. If Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m wrong...Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take it like a man! Ha ha.â&#x20AC;? Judi About the only difference it would make if you turned off the engine before putting the shift lever into park would be that the power brake assist would be lost when the engine quit running. If you already had your foot on the brake, this wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter unless you released the pedal before shifting to park. You should make sure you apply the park brake before releasing the main brake after putting the shifter into park. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be surprised to know that without the parking brake applied the entire rolling weight of your vehicle is held by a small short metal rod in the transmission about the diameter of a pencil. When these rods wear because of lack of use of the parking brake, they can develop a groove that makes it harder to get the transmission out of park. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hi Brian: I enjoy reading your column every week. It provides a lot of insight. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had to live with for the past year or so. I have a 2007 Infiniti FX35 with 118,000 km. When I bought the car three years ago, I was getting approximately 23.9 mpg (US gal.) premium fuel on a 1,500 mile road trip to Florida. Last year it dropped to under 21 mpg. Now I am down to 19.5 mpg. I change the air filter and oil regularly. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to matter what speed I drive at: 60 mph or 75 mph, sometimes higher in order to keep up with traffic, A/C on or not, nothing changes. Would new spark plugs help or anything else that you can suggest? Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my second issue. I took it in to the shop with a noise in the front end. For a bit of background, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had all the wheel bearings replaced under warranty two years ago. Last year the car developed a grinding noise in the front end. I went to the dealer and they said all that was needed was a slight adjustment to the brakes which was done. On my drive to Florida last year a slight vibration developed and an irritating rubbing noise at

Friends of Augusta Street Park need your help to make a splash! Fund offers us a chance to put our fundraising efforts over the top,â&#x20AC;? says committee member, Linda Nilson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Avivaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s criteria fits perfectly with our vision of recreating Augusta Street Park as a safe, accessible community place where neighbours of all ages and abilities can meet, play, and relax.â&#x20AC;? The Augusta Street Park Community Committee has submitted their idea for funding for the splash pad phase of their plan through the Aviva Community Fund and is happy to have the support of Aviva Broker, Oegema, Nicholson & Associates. The committee sees this park element as more than just a splash pad for children but also a memorial water fountain of sorts in honour of all the hard community work done 40 years ago by neighbours who helped to bring water services and Augusta Street Park to the neighbourhood. The contest consists of three qualifying rounds from

The Bard of Avon comes to Carleton Place this October Arts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Othello, Shakespeareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s classic tragedy of love, betrayal and murder comes to the Carleton Place Town Hall theatre this October. Fifteen young people from Carleton Place, Almonte, and Lanark County will be presenting the tale of the Moor of Venice in the way it was originally intended â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in the round, surrounded by the audience. Othello has been an audience favourite continually since it was written four hundred years ago. Its story has universal appeal: Iago, a soldier in the army of Venice, is passed over for promotion, and in his jealousy, seeks revenge. Pretending friendship, he sows seeds of doubt within his military commander and former friend, the Moorish general Othello. He convinces Othello that his new bride, Desdemona, has been unfaithful â&#x20AC;&#x201C; while at the same time, Iago slanders the man who was promoted over him, the suave and intelligent Cassio. In the end, Othello, driven mad with doubt, mistakenly seeks revenge upon the faithful and unsuspecting Desdemona, who loves him still. Many theatregoers in the area will remember this group of young actors from previous Shakespearean performances. With the Mississippi Mudds this group presented Macbeth in 2010, and Much Ado About Nothing in 2011. And most recently, this year with the Almonte Valley Players, they presented Hamlet. Audiences will remember Hayley Fortierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s master turn as Hamlet in this springâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pro-

duction. In this production of Othello, she takes on the role of the scheming villain Iago. Newcomer Dayna Stone takes on the title role of Othello. Leah West, who portrayed the mad Ophelia in Hamlet, now challenges herself with the role of Desdemona. And Katie Irvine, who lately played the nefarious villain Claudius, returns as the dashing Cassio. Connor Lyon, whose most recent role in Shakespeare was as Benedick in Much Ado About Nothing, returns to help out as assistant director â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and takes the small part of Brabantio, Desdemonaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father, as well. Director Mark Piper returns for his fourth outing, as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m having so much fun with this Shakespearean company, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll ever stop,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a great learning experience for me as well. These actors, teenagers though they are, have taught me a lot about both Shakespeare and about acting. Some of them have developed their talents nearly to the professional level, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great privilege to work with them.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a chance to see some very talented local teens bring life to the story of â&#x20AC;&#x153;the one who loved, not wisely but too well.â&#x20AC;? William Shakespeareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Othello comes to Carleton Place Town Hall Oct. 20, 25, and 26. Tickets will be sold at the Carleton Place Chamber of Commerce Visitor Centre, 132 Coleman Street (613257-1976). For more details, please visit mississippimudds. ca.

1933 Ford hot rod turns up in Niagara Falls 44 years later, with upgrades! Lifestyle – Russell Boles of Niagara Falls, Ontario, writes: “Hi Bill, I have been enjoying your ‘Old Car Detective’ column for several years. “Back in 1968, I purchased my first and only hot rod from a friend in rural Niagara. Charley Crowther built it – a 1933 Ford two-door coach with a flathead V8, lovely canary yellow paint job and a silver naugahyde interior stitched up by his mother! I drove it as my only car for about a year, with a constant smile on my face. However, I was getting married in the spring of 1970 and reluctantly sold the car in the fall of ’69 as I could not afford to keep it. I’ve kicked myself for over 40 years for letting it go. I sold it in Stoney Creek and it changed hands several times and I lost track of it. “A few years ago, I learned that my old ’33 had returned to Niagara, next door to where it was built so many years earlier. I finally traced the owner and in late June 2013 was able to see the car again after 44 years! It is now bright red and running a 327 Chevy with many fine upgrades. Enclosed are pictures of when I owned it and again this year.” The 1933 Fords and the almost identical ‘34s have long been a favourite with hot rodders and restorers alike. The ‘33s were the first Fords with a grille set back at an

angle as a big step toward streamlining. They are still a delight to look at today, 80 years later. And what does Russell Boles drive today? “I have just purchased from a collection in Arkansas a nicely restored 1941 Chevrolet pickup. So once again I’m having

fun cruising. This one won’t get away!” I’m always looking for more stories. Email billtsherk@sympatico.ca or write Bill Sherk, 25 John St., P.O. Box 255, Leamington, ON

Above, same ’33 Ford today, now red and still a hot rod. Note black “bra” at front to protect from stone chips. Also note the dual windshield wipers mounted on the roof, twin cowl lights, custom license plate, and cool owner with thumbs in pockets (we all stood that way 40 years ago!).

Club of Rome members gathers in Merrickville what the Club of Rome members were interested in. Mayor Struthers described the challenges in getting the Rideau Canal issues listened to by other agencies. There are 13 municipalities with approval authority over local land use planning and development, plus three upper-tier levels. There are eight-plus provincial ministries and two conservation authorities focused on land use planning, natural environment, cultural heritage, mining capacity, transportation, agriculture, water quality and tourism. There are three federal agencies with responsibility for federal lands – Parks Canada, the National Capital Commission and the Department of National Defence. Added to the mix are several active not-for-profit groups and organizations, citizens groups and countless private property owners and businesses. The steering committee has a five-year implementation plan it is following. The plans go off into the future with 2018 as a completion date. Everything from looking at regulations about canal use to guidelines for building and site design is included in the list of projects included in the plan. “We wanted a made-at-home governance model,” said Struthers. “We will keep in touch,” said Hegan, explaining the whole point in coming out to Merrickville was to apply the various ideas of how to work together. Struthers felt the meeting was a success. “You could see the lights turning on,” he said, referring to how the club members began to understand how the stakeholders of the Rideau River had managed to come up with a plan on which everyone could agree.

Club looks at different ways to reach consensus on various water issues By JOSEPH MORIN joe.morin@metroland.com

News – Finding ways to bring people together, finding a common thread that all stakeholders in an issue can cling to is a challenge at the best of times. Members of the Club of Rome, travelling from all corners of the world, gathered in the Village of Merrickville on Saturday, Sept. 21. The get together in the ballroom of the Baldachin Inn was the final meeting in the club’s annual general assembly and conference. The group met in Ottawa Sept. 19 and Sept. 20. The Merrickville meeting was their final one. The theme of the conference was about understanding the world, all that drives it and the world’s resources, and how everyone can affect the relationship between humanity and the world in which they live. The formal title of the conference and assembly was “Governance of the Commons”. Topics included looking at how work in the digital world affects us all, how the Internet is governed as it evolves, air quality, employment, just to name a few. At the Merrickville meeting, how we are looking after our waterways and water in general was the topic. At the same time, the group was looking at how people exchange ideas and share knowledge in an effort to reach a common goal. Along with about 40 Club of Rome members from as far away as South America and Europe were members of the Canadian

Association of the Club of Rome, (CACOR). Mary Hegan was the moderator for the meeting. She is a member of CACOR and lives in Burritts Rapids. “The discussions were really interesting and helpful,” said Hegan. The get together featured a panel made up of Merrickville Wolford Mayor Doug Struthers who also chairs the Steering Committee for the Rideau Corridor Landscape Strategy; Rick Findlay, vice chair of the board of directors of the Canadian Water Network and a CACOR member; Silvia Zimmermann del Castillo, an Argentinean writer; and Peter Au who helped to establish the Rideau Environmental Action League and the Rideau Roundtable. “There were presentations about what other people were doing about their own water issues,” explained Hegan. Mayor Struthers described the work being done to plan for the future of the Rideau Canal. He explained that the Rideau River is part of the Rideau Canal, a Canadian Heritage River and historic canal operated by Parks Canada. Looking after the designation of the Rideau River as a World Heritage Site has created the need for a committee which is trying to get all 13 municipalities that the Rideau River runs through on the same page. The Steering Committee for the Rideau Corridor Landscape Strategy has had some success over the past two years in getting all of the stakeholders on side when it comes to protecting the heritage status. That success was

More than 60 members of the Club of Rome and the Canadian Association of the Club of Rome met in Merrickville on the weekend. “It shows you can have a governance strategy that can deliver a concept,” he said. The challenge back in 2010 when the landscape strategy was created was trying to understand where residents wanted to go in terms of the future of the canal and how they were going to get there. Peter Au, chair of the Rideau Roundtable, said, “It was good that we had a lot of people there talking about local issues.” The retired high school science teacher stressed the need for people to actually listen to each other. He felt that the future of the Rideau Canal and its historical designation could not be left

solely in the hands of Parks Canada. He said due to the economy, Parks Canada may not be able to carry the load it has traditionally carried. Au saw the Club of Rome meeting as an opportunity to shine a light on the changing nature of the Rideau Canal. “We have to find out what we need to do and then do it,” he said. He mentioned the four pillars that hold up a society – economy, environment, culture and a well-balanced social wellbeing. He said that without all of those pillars being in place it would be difficult to expect solutions that would work in the future.

The Club of Rome In April of 1968, Aurelio Peccei, an Italian industrialist along with Alexander Kink, a British scientist and some 30 other scientists, educators, industrialists and international civil servants, gathered in Rome to share their concerns about global problems which they named the “Global Problématique” the predicament of humankind. Out of this meeting they founded the Club of Rome. The Canadian Association of the Club of Rome was created in 1974 and was one of the first of more than 20 National Associations in the world whose members have interests in common with the Club of Rome.

Harden said another factor to take into consideration is the impact this pipeline may have on jobs like farming, which could be significantly damaged if a leak occurs. “These are the questions that need to be asked when talking about jobs affected,” said Harden. She said that for every $1 million invested, there could either be a creation of 15 clean energy jobs or two oil industry jobs. “What do taxpayers want to be investing in?” said Harden. Harden said that extracting bitumen produces three to five times the amount of emissions as extracting oil. The floor was then handed over to Ben Powless, of Ecology Ottawa, which is a not-for-profit organization working towards making Ottawa the green capital of Canada. “I’m going to focus on what the potential impacts are to Kemptville and the Ottawa area,” said Powless. Powless said the pipeline threatens the Rideau River, which is a sensitive ecosystem. Powless worked in many communities in Alberta, where tar sands are present. “Even if we weren’t fundamentally opposed to the pipeline, we would still oppose it because it promotes the growth of the tar sands,” said Powless. Powless said there are five main reasons to be concerned about the pipeline – bitumen is more corrosive and toxic than oil, bitumen is heavy and therefore would sink in a body of water, there’s

never been a pipeline with such high pressure or volume as the proposed TransCanada pipeline, the pipeline will inevitably leak and the current condition of the pipeline they intend to retrofit is poor. According to Powless, a similar converted gas pipeline in the United States experienced 12 leaks in the span of a year. Powless said TransCanada has already tried to go West (through British Columbia) and South (through United States) with this pipeline, but was rejected in both directions. Now, they are trying to come East, through a portion of North Grenville. “This is TransCanada’s last ditch effort to get the bitumen to the ocean,” said Powless. Powless said the open house being hosted by TransCanada is viewed as a form of consultation with the community, so they can start the application process with the government. “It’s important to start acting now,” said Powless. “We need to come together to ensure we as a people are heard.” The final speaker, a local resident and SNG member by the name of Ian Angus, is an environmental writer for the journal Climate and Capitalism. Angus has published two books and many articles on environmental issues. “I’m here to talk about the potential impact this pipeline could have on the Rideau River and our drinking water,” said Angus. Angus said that between 60,000 and 80,000 boats use the Rideau River every year. Angus said that if the pipeline

leaks into the river, it will destroy the beautiful ad historic canal, which is the only UNESCO world heritage site in all of Ontario. Angus said that aside from potential damage to the river, residents should be concerned about their drinking water, all of which comes from wells. Angus said that all the wells in the community are fed from the Nepean and Oxford aquifers. The pipeline, if permitted, will cross both aquifers. The Nepean aquifer is much deeper and less at risk than the Oxford aquifer. “If the pipeline leaks, which is a matter of when and where, this will affect the drinking water in Oxford Mills and Merrickville,” said Angus. The Oxford aquifer is rated as highly vulnerable, which is the worst rating possible, because the soil is so thin. “70 per cent of residents rely on the shallow Oxford aquifer,” said Angus. Angus said a study that was done stated that tanks holding heating oil, which many residents have, are enough to endanger the vulnerable aquifer, let alone a pipeline flowing 1.1 million barrels of bitumen a day. Angus reiterated that it wouldn’t take much to poison the aquifer, rendering homes and business in the area worthless and land unlivable. “In 1991, a tank containing dry cleaning products spilled in Manotick, poisoning 74 wells,” said Angus. “Still today, 22 years later, they have to get water from Ottawa wells.” Angus said there have been two crude oil spills per day, for the last 37 years, in

Alberta. “These are just the spills that are reported,” said Angus. Angus said the official plan for North Grenville states that the municipal government must protect the highly vulnerable aquifer and prevent potentially damaging development. “We’re just asking officials to follow the official plan,” said Angus. North Grenville Mayor David Gordon was asked to say a few word following the presentations. “Tonight is a learning experience for Councillor Butler and myself,” said Gordon. “We are here to learn. Tonight is the first step in becoming more aware of the information, which was excellent. We’re going to be here listening to the questions from the public.” A period of questions from the public was initiated with some questions regarding oil ownership, assessment processes and understanding pressure levels in pipelines. A petition, drafted by SNG, was available at the session for resident’s consideration. As stated in the petition, residents are opposed to the pipeline until ‘a full assessment has been made of potential impacts on our drinking water, air and land and associated risks to the Rideau River system.’ SNG encourages all residents to take a close look at all the information presented and make an informed decision regarding the pipeline. All concerns should be addressed to public officials, such as MP Gord Brown or MPP Steve Clark.

Rock My House sure to improve local rhythm By JENNIFER WESTENDORP jwestendorp@perfprint.ca

News – Kevin Eamon has an undying love for music. It has been his mistress for three long decades and will continue to be a major part of his life for years to come. The newest addition to North Grenville commerce, the Rock My House Music Centre, was made possible through the Self Employment Program, which enabled Eamon to realize his dream of owning a music store. “Over the years music has been diminishing in schools,” said Eamon. “The rehearsal space and school are the focus for me. I want to give kids the opportunity to learn a valuable skill.” Eamon said that opening the store and school was a lifetime in the making. “It’s been a long time coming,” he explained. “A lifetime of building. I want to teach other people.” Eamon acquired the building in July, located at 669 South Gower Drive, and worked hard to transform the space into a music lovers haven. When living in Toronto, Eamon used to rent jam spaces like the one he built for himself in North Grenville. “I wanted to bring that to this area,” he said. “It’s a concept I had.” Eamon has a strong focus on percussion and drums. Rock My House is a fully equipped rehearsal studio where bands can just plug in and play without the concern of

By the mid-nineties, Eamon was in a band that hit the Billboard charts and was supported by videos aired on Musique Plus and Much Music. Another achievement was the opportunity to record in the Bennet House Studio in Tennessee, which is known as the studio that Elvis recorded in. Eamon is a graduate from Recording Arts Canada where he received a diploma in Audio Engineering and Sound Recording. “I’ve been around, done a lot,” said Eamon. “I’ve been playing for a long time.” Music is definitely a major part of Eamon’s life, having now made it his livelihood. “I find music is therapy for me,” said Eamon. “It’s a passion.” To learn more about Rock My House and see store hours, visit www.rockmyhousemc.com. Eamon is looking for someone to teach violin, due to a high demand of local residents looking to sign up for violin classes. Anyone with a love of music, young or old, who wants to learn, practice or visit will enjoy the great vibe that the centre offers. “I’m a rocker,” said Eamon.

Chamber gala honours the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;best of the bestâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Call 9-1-1

R0012325924

Events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The 25th Chamber of Commerce Salute to Excellence Awards Gala is being held at the Municipal Centre on Sept. 28. The annual event highlights the accomplishments of businesses and individuals in the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a way to celebrate the best of the best in North Grenville,â&#x20AC;? said Wendy Chapman, Executive Director and CEO of the Chamber of Commerce. An award presentation was initiated by the chamber in 1989, as a way to recognize the accomplishments of business in the community. Over the years, the event has grown from a single award to several. The business of the year award was soon followed by the citizen of the year award. In 2006, the chamber decided to create two separate categories to recognize new and established businesses in the community. The Citizen of the Year award was named in honour of Hal Anthony, past announcer of CFRA, who resided in Kemptville and the Established Business award is named in honour of Mel Johnston, original owner for more than 50 years of the GM Car Dealership in Kemptville. A fourth award was soon added to recognize employers in the community. Then in 2007, North Grenville lost another important member of the community, Russ Mosher. This prompted the chamber to designate another award, for volunteerism in the community, in honour of Russ. There are also two awards given to cooperative education students each year, one from St. Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and one from North Grenville District High School, who have shown an entrepreneurial spirit. A total of seven prestigious awards are now handed out annually by the chamber. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The chamber initiated the award program 25 years ago to fill a need in celebrating people in the community,â&#x20AC;? said Chapman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It starts to raise the bar. It gives businesses and members of the community something to strive for.â&#x20AC;? Award renamed Because there are no senior members of the Anthony family left in the community, the Board of Directors decided, this year, to rename the Citizen of the Year award, and for the first time to honour two â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;livingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and prominent members of the community; Dr. George and Norma Fisher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The newly named award is being presented for the first

time at the Gala,â&#x20AC;? said Chapman. The New Business of the year Award is given to a business that has been operating in the community for between one and five years. The business must also have intentions of making North Grenville a better place and providing job opportunities. The Mel Johnston Established Business of the Year Award is given to a business that has been operating in the community for six years or more. The business must also have made North Grenville a better place to live. The Employer of the Year Award is given to an individual who creates a positive, fair and Submitted photo supportive work environment The New Business of the Year Award recipient in 2012 was eQuinelle Golf Course.

Residents beware of potential water scam in North Grenville News – Be advised that representatives from a water filtration company are currently conducting house calls in North Grenville. The representatives will enter a resident’s house and proceed to test their water. They will then make a big, dramatic show of how awful the water quality is in an attempt to peddle their expensive filtration systems. Municipal staff wish to assure residents that there is absolutely nothing wrong with their water.

The water quality meets and exceeds all Ministry of the Environment requirements. There are no health issues, with regards to water quality, in the municipality. The representatives are sales people and they use scare tactics to peddle products. Residents should avoid inviting non-officials into their homes to conduct such tests. The town water in Kemptville is tested on a regular basis to ensure the safety and health of all residents.

Maplewood Hall hosts dance Sept. 28

Events – Maplewood Hall in Oxford Mills will be filled with the sound of revelers this Saturday, Sept. 28 as the Maplewood Ceilidh Band hosts a Community Dance. The music will be a mix of Scottish and Irish, with a little bit of Renaissance thrown in for good measure. All the dances will be demonstrated, so you don’t need to have any experience, just enthusiasm! Entrance to the event is by donation and all the money received is going toward the upkeep of the lovely old schoolhouse. The all-ages dance begins at 7:30 p.m. and will run approximately two hours. The Maplewood Ceilidh Band will also be performing at the ‘Ceilidh For Karen,’ on Oct. 25t so this Saturday’s dance is a great opportunity to learn some of the steps prior to that event.

If you are uneasy, after being visited by these representatives, about the quality of your water, then take a sample to the Health Unit to be tested. This is the proper means of water testing. The company in question offer products that supposedly remove the chlorine taste from hard water. However, their products are not advertised as offering any sort of health benefit.

Good fortune can be anytime

E

ditorial – A purse can be the second most important item a woman or man has next to a wife, husband or child. When it is lost their world tends to explode. First there is the feeling of sadness at having lost a purse, your personal companion, and keeper of all that is you. Next comes the realization that just about everything about the owner of the purse is now up for grabs. The assumption is that someone will find the purse, empty it of anything of value and for a moment or two have the life and identity of the owner in their evil hands. It makes perfect sense. A negative reaction to having lost something as valuable as a purse is nourished by the realization that the outside world, so full of bad events, corrupt officials and violent predators has been able to reach into your rural town and slap you in the face. All of the above happened to a shopper in Kemptville this past weekend. When she realized her purse was gone she went through a check list of places where she could have lost it. Was it in Carleton Place where she had visited family? Or in Smiths Falls where she stopped for a coffee on her way back to Kemptville? Could it be in Kemptville where she started her day at Jonsson’s Independent Grocer? By now, at least five hours later, her purse, regardless of where she lost it, would be long gone. The logical place to start would be at Jonsson’s. Just the thought of all that would have to be replaced, from driver’s license to social insurance card and health cards not to

L

mention credit cards was almost too much to bear. On arriving at Jonssons she went right up to the customer service desk where all of the lottery tickets are sold. Of course she had to wait while someone cashed in and purchased at least 20 tickets. The wait was understandably a suspenseful one as she stood in line waiting to confirm what she already was starting to believe; that her purse and all of its contents was gone forever. Finally it was her turn at the front of the line-up and it was all she could do to try and explain to the young girl behind the counter about her purse, but just saying she had lost it out loud was difficult. Saying it meant it was true. There was no hope at all left other than doing her duty and backtracking her various stops in the faint hope of discovering her purse, and then, why should she expect it to be found at all. She explained her problem and the girl was silent for a moment and then asked, “What colour is it?” followed by a huge smile on her face as she reached under the counter. The colour confirmed, she pulled the purse out and handed it to its rightful owner. In a flash all that negativity evaporated, the goodness returned to her world and heaven was as close as it would ever be to everyone at the Jonsson’s Independent Grocer customer service desk at that moment. The purse had been turned in after being discovered in a shopping cart in the parking lot and once more all the bad in the world goes back to being just a rumour, nothing more.

LOCAL NEWS Camp celebration The Rideau Hill Camp, along the Rideau River between Kemptville and Osgoode, has been operational for 65 years. The monumental occasion was marked by a special weekend, hosted by the camp, which saw generations of past campers, as well as staff members, again pass through the gates. The celebratory weekend was attended by children, adults and seniors, all of whom delighted in the many events planned throughout. The camp continues to be the only one of its kind in the area.

Rideau Hill turns 65 and wraps up camping season News - A Glorious Summer was had by all at Rideau Hill Camp. The best summer ever, thanks to wonderful staff of fabulously talented local youth. The location between Kemptville and Osgoode, along the Rideau River, has made it a favourite for sleepover campers. Historical Rideau Hill Camp celebrated it’s 65th year of camping service the weekend of June 22 to 23. A weekend of free events was offered to celebrate the camp’s anniversary, which provided a venue for past campers and staff to reunite and to showcase the camp to the public. Approximately 150 eager nature lovers passed through the gates for the celebration. Over 65 of these attendees spent the night in our rustic cabins. Superb meals were provided by several local United Churches. Saturday’s Lunch was provided by South Mountain-Hallville Pastoral Charge. The dining hall was filled with campers from nine-months-old to 90-years-old. A rousing grace was led by camp staff and the wonderful meal was often interrupted by traditional ‘no elbows on the table’ pranks.

exceptional weekend, an abundant lunch was provided by St. John’s United Church, as campers and camp supporters shared their final memories and enjoyed archival photos and memorabilia from this historic camp! So many in attendance openly wished this could be an annual event. Rideau Hill camp has just announced its Christmas Musical Fundraiser to be held at St. John’s United Church in Kemptville on Sunday, December 8 at 5 p.m. The community will be treated to the voices of the Ottawa Valley Men’s Choir. This fundraiser will kick-off fundraising efforts to renovate the oldest and most beloved building on the camp property, the ‘historic rec hall.’ This lovely old favourite will be getting a new roof, windows and siding. The camp is now accepting gifts and donations on behalf of this very necessary and timely project. Summer camp has so much to offer to the community. Rideau Hill has been the only local sleepover summer camp in the area for 65 years. It is a local Gem and has been a summer fixture for so many local families. Some of the campers have attended for generations. On behalf of the Rideau Hill Camp Board, we would like to thank the surrounding communities for their ongoing support of our historic camp so we may continue to serve local children and families.

The afternoon included a traditional camp schedule of activities. Current and past staff led outdoor adventures including canoeing and nature scavenger hunts. Children were treated to crafts, such as re-purposing Tshirts to serve as beach cover-ups by cutting, knotting and tie dye-

ing. Some adults were introduced to scrapbooking, while others played cards and enjoyed viewing the camp memorabilia. Everyone was offered the opportunity to swim in the pool, try their hand at archery or enjoy the many nature trails. As the Camp bell sounded the call for dinner, the Winchester United Church was busy in the kitchen preparing a fabulous spaghetti dinner which, of course, included anniversary cake. Many past campers (some in their sixties, seventies and eighties shared camp memories). Several families including the Milne and the Ferrell/Irving families were represented by four generations of family members who have attended Rideau Hill Camp over the past 65 years. After the sharing of Vespers, the evening ended with an enthusiastic and very animated campfire. This campfire tradition included the sharing of old and new camp songs in an all inclusive setting along the beautiful Rideau River. Sunday morning‘s historic camp bell rang to call all guests to breakfast provided and served by Hallville United Church Men’s group. This wonderful breakfast allowed for the sharing of memories from camps past and present. Breakfast was followed by an outdoor church service, provided by St. John’s United Church from Kemptville and South Mountain Pastoral Charge. The morning service was held near the river in the open air pavilion (to the delight of all attendees). To wrap-up the

Local cancer survivor participates in Ride the Rideau Support Small Business

BY JENNIFER WESTENDORP jwestendorp@perfprint.ca

News – Robert Noseworthy had two main reasons to survive. Their names are David and Julianne, his two children, who were just babies when he was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in 1988. Robert was playing squash with a friend 25 years ago when his world went dark. At the time, he was young and generally in good physical health. He went to the emergency room and underwent blood work. That’s when he learned he had cancer of the blood. “All I could think about was my kids,” said Robert. “My son was five months old and my daughter was a year-and-a-half old.” Despite the fact Robert’s chances for survival were a mere 13 per cent, due to the fact that his illness was advanced and chemo and radiation therapy were considered experimental at the time, he had two very good reasons to fight for his life. “My focus was that I wanted to be around to see my kids and my grandchildren grow up,” said Robert. “It changes your life completely. All I could do was follow the doctor’s instructions and hope for the best.” Robert’s will to survive paid off and in the spring of 1989, his leukemia was in remission. He received a bone marrow transplant from his sister, who was a 100 per cent match. This year was the first time Robert participated in the Ride the Rideau fundraising event for the Ottawa hospital on Sept. 7. “It was very special because I had my son and daughter, now 25 and 26-years-old riding with me,” said Robert. Robert was one of the 36 cancer survivors who participated, all of whom were given a white flag to attach to their bicycles.

Robert Noseworthy participated in Ride the Rideau this year, which benefitted cancer research. From left, David, Robert and Julianne. “It’s an identifier, so when all riders go by, they congratulate you,” said Robert. “It’s quite satisfying. However, I was thanking them for their contributions to cancer research.” The ride raised over $2 million for cancer research at the Ottawa Hospital this year. The ride spans 100 kilometers, beginning at the Ernst and Young Centre in Ottawa and ending in Merrickville. “The ride was extremely special to me because now my kids are there carrying the torch for a cause that affected my life 25 years ago,” said Robert. Robert is an avid cyclist, but doesn’t get much time to cycle because he is busy with his busi-

ness, Westerra Homes, which is based out of Kemptville. He was inspired to participate in the ride by Robert Merkley of Merkley Supply in Ottawa, which is one of his suppliers. “This is his fourth year participating in the ride,” said Robert. “He motivated me to do it.” Since the ride, Robert has already been approached by five people who are determined to join his cycling team for the event next year. Robert said he will continue to support cancer research. “I’m in a position now to give back and this is one way I chose to do so,” said Robert.

Gardeners want to grow things that are not only attractive but beneficial. With Aronia and Sea Buckthorn, you can’t lose. They both meet the criteria. To this point, I haven’t harvested our Aronia berries. I leave them for the birds. They are not bitter but don’t have the flavour of a blueberry. Commercial growers are mixing the juice with cranberries or apple juice to get the taste and the benefits. I’ll have to get a suit of armour and try the buckthorn. I’ve posted a link at the bottom of the page from Reuters about the cost of obesity. The numbers are staggering. I’m glad to see folks getting concerned about what they grow and what they eat. I’m the world’s worst. If it’s Tuesday and I’m near a KFC, it’s the Tooney special with fries and gravy, so I get it. Thanks to good genes and hard work, I am not expanding, many are. I’m glad that my readers are trying to find healthy alternatives. We all need to grow more and grow less. h t t p : / / w w w. r e u t e r s . c o m / article/2012/04/30/us-obesityidUSBRE83T0C820120430 If you have any gardening questions or comments, email us at the link below.

I’ve had a few questions from our website that got me thinking. One of them was about Aronia (Chokeberry) and another about Sea Buckthorn. These are not the regular questions I get about flowers and foliage. These folks wanted to know about the beneficial properties of the berries. Both of these plants are bullet proof hardy in our area and are loaded with vitamin C, antioxidants and a host of other vitamins. Aronia plantations are springing up all over North America. Sea Buckthorn is just taking off. As it happens, we have both in our garden. I bought the seeds for the Aronia online and the vendor told me that germination was improved if the seeds passed through a bird’s digestive tract. Right! With a little research, it turns out that the acid in the bird’s digestive tract breaks down the hard outer shell of the seed. I took the packet of seeds and divided them in half. One half I soaked in water and the other half in a solution of water and muriatic acid. Then I planted the seeds. The germination rate for the acid soaked seeds was almost double the water soaked seeds. Didn’t need a bird after all. Angie got the Sea Buckthorn at a plant sale. It has silvery blue-green leaves and produces an abundance of orange berries and wicked thorns. It is also a tad invasive but would make a great hedge that would stop anything short of a Ninja. Then I got thinking about why all this interest in plants that produce fruit that have all the properties listed above. Gardeners

Fact sheets highlight key economic indicators in rural Ontario

News - New Focus on Rural Ontario fact sheets show that the three largest employment sectors in rural Ontario are: wholesale/retail trade, public health services and manufacturing. “Some people may be surprised that more than twice as many people work in manufacturing than in on-farm work,” says Norm Ragetlie of the Rural Ontario Institute. Manufacturing remains a large sector in the rural economy even after considerable long-term restructuring over the last decade. Ragetlie adds, “About a quarter of the work force is employed in the public sector when you add up health, education, municipal, provincial and federal employees – that percentage share is no different than urban areas.” This new set of four Focus on Rural Ontario fact sheets look at change over time in several dimensions of rural and small town Ontario economic performance – EI recipients, building permit values and employment by sector. The trends are compared to metro areas. Generally rural Ontario is seeing an overall decline in the numbers of people collecting EI consistent with the broader slow recovery after the recession although particular areas show both ups and downs and the least metroinfluenced zones are experiencing a recent rise in EI recipients. Building permit applications are an indicator of future investment that will lead to employment in construction and trades. The non-metro economy is somewhat more specialized in this sector than the metro economy. Compared to the previous year industrial building construction values have increased in non-metro Ontario. Commercial building values have declined and residential building permits have stayed the same. The overall result is a consistent level. Based on Statistics Canada data, these easy-to-read Focus on Rural Ontario fact sheets highlight the changing dynamics of rural Ontario’s population, communities and economies.

Local woman spears bronze By JENNIFER WESTENDORP jwestendorp@perfprint.ca

News – It seems contradictory that a woman who doesn’t own a horse could take home bronze in a jousting tournament. However, Helen MacGregor is proof in itself that anything is possible with the right attitude, even if you lack the proper equipment. “My husband, Paul Sharpe, designed and built a jousting practice venue for me, where I can practice on my bicycle,” said Helen. “People driving to work probably think I’m crazy.” The ingenious Sharpe hung two-inch conduit rings from bird feeders at their residence in Kemptville. “I used a pole he made for me to practice,” said Helen. Whoever said you needed to right tools to be successful clearly never met this couple. “He used a frying pan hanging from a bird feeder to simulate a quintain,” said Helen. A quintain, for those of you who are not up on their jousting lingo, is essentially a target attached to a sandbag, which spins around when struck with enough force. It is a technique used in jousting practice. “It’s hilarious these things he invented and they really helped,” said Helen.

R0012329302_0926

An understatement at its finest. The Kemptville native just placed 12th out of 28 competitors at the International Jousting Championship in Colorado, which ran from September 5 to 8. Helen received the bronze medal for spearing a bull’s eye in the third fastest time during the games portion of the tournament. Helen has only been involved in jousting for five years. She was introduced to medieval festivities by a colleague at the University of Guelph, Kemptville campus, Katrina Merkies. “About six years ago, she decided to do an event for the students, which became the first medieval festival in Kemptville,” said Helen. At the festival, Helen was introduced to Shane Adams, the Canadian born World Champion in jousting. “Shane encouraged me to give jousting a try,” said Helen. After this year’s festival, and many bird feeders later, Shane asked Helen to join his jousting team, the Knights of Valour, at the International Jousting Championship. “I thought he was kidding,” she said. The joke, it seems, was on her. “Shane had faith in me,” said Helen. “I didn’t, but he did. I thought as long as I didn’t come last and embarrass him, it would Sunday Night Mix League 7pm HSFM Cody Dalgleish – 267 Peter S – 255 HSFL Chelsea – 163 Carol Armstrong – 161 HMFM Cody Dalgleish – 686 Denis Cadieux – 595 HMFL Carol Armstrong – 455 Lynn – 411 Monday Night Mix Teamstandings; Team 4 – 8-14 Team 2 – 6-12 Team 1 – 6-8 Team 6 – 2-8 Team 3 – 2-4 Team 5 – 0-2 Team 7 – 0 Team 8 – 0 HSFM Ron Lecuyer – 295 Bruce Nesbitt – 292 HSFL Cathy Nesbitt – 229 Mary Ann Bell – 217 HMFM Ron Lecuyer – 717 Gord Male – 642 HMFL Cathy Nesbitt – 597 Mary Ann Bell – 595 Tuesday Senior Mix “League ‘81” Teamstandings; Wayne Kenny -7-17 Keith Crawford – 5-15 Sharon Gilmer – 2-13 Marie Gouthro – 5-10 Don Moorhouse – 0-9 Maynard Woods – 5-9

be alright.” Placing 12th was a sure cry from last. “Shane said I’m a fierce competitor,” said Helen. The tournament was a definite success for Helen, who was invited by Shane to participate again next year. “I’m thinking maybe it’s time to find someone who owns a horse who doesn’t necessarily have enough time to exercise it,” said Helen. Shane shared his horse, Athos, with Helen during the tournament. “I love Athos,” said Helen. “He just loves the games. He is a wonderful gaming horse. I get to ride him when I see Shane at festivals. Helen’s participation in the tournament was sponsored by Kemptville Physiotherapy Clinic and Cranberry Hill Animal Hospital. “Carrie Smith of Kemptville Physiotherapy was incredible throughout this whole process,” said Helen. “She even attended the tournament and acted as the team’s physiotherapist. I couldn’t have done this without her.” Helen plans on jousting for many years to come, even if she must do so from the seat of a bicycle. “It requires good riding skills, accuracy and it’s lots of fun,” she said.

The new tourism website, which has been up and running for a few weeks, has put North Grenville the touch of a fingertip away. “The website was developed with lots of input from the residents, municipal staff and business owners,” said Tom Graham, marketing specialist for the project. Graham worked with the Municipality’s Economic Development Department as part of their continued Tourism Development activities. The website, which is based upon the same technology as North Grenville’s Green and Growing (economic development) site, is sure to delight residents and tourists alike. “It breaks down the destinations in North Grenville,” said Graham. “All the maps are now organized in one space.” The website features all the local restaurants, accommodations and events North Grenville has to offer. Visitors and residents can scroll through the lists of eateries at their own leisure before

Screenshots show the colourful displays off the new North Grenville tourism website. picking a place to go out for dinner. The website even has a feature linked to Google maps, so people can get directions to the restaurant if they’re not sure where it is. They can also have access to infor-

mation about all the events around town, which they may not have heard about previously. “Local events are available on the calendar,” said Graham. “It is updated regularly by staff.”

The walking tours, which are a popular attraction in North Grenville, are listed on the website. There is also information regarding all historical villages located within the municipalities. The history of the community is also featured on the site. There is a composite video at the bottom of the site, which visually portrays all the tourist attractions in North Grenville. The website is a sleek design, with a fitting colour scheme and beautiful examples of local photography. Navigating through the site is easy to do, even for the most technologically challenged of people. Residents will find the site interesting and may even learn a thing or two about their community. Vince Murphy, of Probase Web, is one of the designers behind the impressive new site. “We took existing content from pdf’s and made it more accessible,” said Murphy. “It’s quite an effort to take existing content and reformat it to make it more accessible.” The site also boasts day trip guides, which have different themes, for visitors to choose from. All the content on the site adapts to various devices, such as iPads and tablets. “We also reformatted the site spe-

cifically for phones,” said Murphy. “We added features, such as find the nearest location.” The version of the site that pops up on a phone is much different than the one available on a computer, which is why Murphy took advantage of the smaller screen in the design process. “You must pick and choose what you push forward,” said Murphy. “The site works across all devices and it is easily maintained. Graham said the site has already received positive feedback and statistics, in terms of the number of visitors, are already being gathered. “We’re looking forward to having it work successfully to promote tourism in North Grenville,” said Graham. Graham and Murphy showed off the new website at the council meeting held on Sept. 9. The councillors were impressed and pleased with the site, which will promote North Grenville, as well as make it more virtually accessible. “I would like to thank all the people who put their time and effort into making the site,” said Councillor Terry Butler. “It has put North Grenville on the leading edge of tourism.” Check out the website at www.explorenorthgrenville.ca.

McDonald’s gets winning manager By JENNIFER WESTENDORP jwestendorp@perfprint.ca

News – McFamous. A term coined by Manager of the Year for McDonald’s, Michelle Warren. The ever present smile on Michelle’s face is evidence enough of why McDonald’s chose to honour her during their regional ceremonies this past summer. “Obviously, it was very surprising to hear and a huge honour,” said Michelle. “It’s amazing that the people I work for recognize what I’m doing, but McDonald’s as well.” The ceremonies took place in Toronto, where Michelle was presented with a commemorative plaque and corporate stocks. The regional vice president of McDonald’s was in attendance, which made the event even more special. Michelle found out in May that she would be the recipient of the prestigious award, for which only the top 10 per cent of McDonald’s managers are eligible. The award is presented to managers in various regions across the country. Michelle received the award for her work at the Perth McDonald’s, which is owned by the same franchisee as the Kemptville location. Michelle worked in Perth for two-and-a-half years, before being transferred to Kemptville

in March. “Some of the things that had to do with me receiving the award were my attention to customer service, ability to build sales and community outreach,” said Michelle. She explained that the company is focused on quality and therefore sends mystery shoppers into all their restaurants. The award also centres around the scores each restaurant receives from these mystery shoppers, who rate each location on quality, efficiency and customer service. “It gives McDonald’s a snapshot of how each restaurant is running,” said Michelle. Clearly, something special was going on at the Perth location. “This award reflects the work I was doing there,” said Michelle. Now in Kemptville Now, Kemptville residents get to reap the rewards of having Michelle around to serve them delicious burgers and fries. “I love it here,” she said. “The nice thing is this restaurant had a collection of regular customers who I got to know.” The franchisee, who owns the Perth, Kemptville, Smiths Falls and Carleton Place McDonald’s, took Michelle out for a celebratory dinner after receiving the award. “He also joined me at the cer-

emony in Toronto, which was nice,” she said. Michelle, a resident of Smiths Falls, has been working for McDonald’s for 10 years. In recognition of her commitment, she is set to receive a commemorative ring this year as well. “I was 16-years-old when I started at the Brockville McDonald’s,” said Michelle. Her hard work and dedication paid off when two years later she was promoted to swing manager. “Basically, I was the manager who did odd shifts,” she explained. A further three years of determination resulted in another promotion to store manager. Michelle enjoys working for McDonald’s and intends to stay with the corporation for many years to come. “My goal would be to continue working with my franchisee,” said Michelle. “There are always lots of opportunities within McDonald’s to move up in the future.” Michelle said she is delighted to be working in Kemptville, where the staff are extremely hard working and fun to be around. “I love just being able to make a difference in people’s days,” she said. “It’s nice being able to interact with customers and the people I work with. It’s all about having a positive impact.”

Timely warning by OPP likely saves young woman’s life News - A young woman is crediting an Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officer for saving her life after surviving a motor vehicle collision that could have potentially ended it had she not received a seat belt warning days before the crash. Jennifer Walker, a 19 year-old university student was driving her car in Exeter, Ontario, on May 23, 2013, when OPP Constable Ron Young, on bicycle patrol, pulled her over when he observed her talking on her cell phone and not wearing her seatbelt. Const. Young issued Jennifer a $155

ticket for driving while using her cell phone but used police discretion and let her off with a warning and education about not wearing her seatbelt. At the time, Jennifer had no idea how pivotal that moment would be in the days ahead, but she made a decision to change her driving behaviour to enhance personal safety. Just two days later, on May 25, 2013, Jennifer’s car was struck broadside by a vehicle that failed to stop at a stop sign. Jennifer sustained minor breaks and bruises in the incident and, according to the OPP, the crash was serious

enough to have killed her had she not been wearing her seatbelt. A few weeks after her traumatic ordeal, Jennifer contacted Const. Young to thank him for issuing her a ticket and for saving her life. “Jennifer’s story is a perfect example of how wearing a seatbelt can dramatically change the outcome of a collision and may have actually saved someone’s life. Sadly, people continue to die on our roads because, unlike Jennifer, they continue to ignore our messages about the important role seatbelts play in saving the lives of men, women

and children involved in road crashes,” said Chief Superintendent Don Bell, Commander of the OPP Highway Safety Division. Fall campaign “With the OPP Fall Seat Belt Campaign set to get under way across the province, I encourage all Ontarians to listen to Jennifer’s story. The OPP would like to see every road user make the same commitment that Jennifer made to change her driving behaviour because there is no question that fewer people would die needlessly on

our roads,” said OPP Deputy Commissioner Larry Beechey, Provincial Commander, Traffic Safety and Operational Support. To view or download a short video about Jennifer’s story, click on the following link: http://youtu. be/6oyH0UexsHc The OPP Fall Seat Belt Campaign runs from Sept. 26 to Oct. 13, 2013. During that time, OPP officers across the province will be highly visible enforcing and raising awareness of seatbelt laws in an effort to change driving behaviour and save lives.

Exercise is just as important as eating healthy BY HEATHER WESTENDORP

Attempting to lose weight without exercise is simply not going to work. The main focus when we first embark on a diet is food, but as time goes on, increasing energy usage is really important. Exercise helps strengthen muscles and helps skin regain its elasticity as those fat cells shrink in size. Losing pounds helps fat cells shrink, but they are still there. Fat cells are those tricky little devils our body uses to store fat. The more we weigh, the more fat cells we have. The number of cells will not change with weight loss, they will only shrink. Fat Cells basically lie in wait, for you to stop dieting, so they can increase in size again. The skin will become lose and simply hang as those pounds drop off. Exercise is imperative to tone and feel good. Strengthening your muscles will help you maintain weight loss and once you hit your goal, continuing exercise will help you use energy (calories) more efficiently. I dislike exercise as much as the next person. Really! The discipline of simply walking every day for the first few months while trying to lose weight was horrible! I could not even walk one single mile without feeling like I was having a heart attack. There were feelings of embarrassment and even a little fear when I first started exercising. I realized that I could not even save someone’s life if I had to.

I could eventually walk a full 5 miles without fear of death. As the weight decreased and the muscles got stronger, exercise actually got easier. Exercise became less a burden and more useful. I know now, when I stop walking, the weight numbers do not change, but the strength does. I have a little more flab around my middle and the weight that I carry begins to sit a little differently. Those fat cells start growing and muscles start to weaken. Muscle weighs more than fat cells. My goal weight was 150 pounds, but after stabilizing that goal weight for almost 2 years since the beginning of Grassy Pond Boot Camp, I am now ready to drop that goal to 140 pounds. I am calling this ‘The Last 10 Pounds’ and intend to write my book with the same title over the next year. Exercise is pivotal to success. I only walk.

Sports - The Kemptville 73's saw action twice this past weekend. On Friday, Sept. 20, the team traveled to Smiths Falls to tackle the Bears. It was all Kemptville for the first 20 minutes. Dean Galasso opened the scoring with his sixth of the season from Quinn Carroll and Brandon Cole. Galasso then added his second of the night assisted by Dylan Giberson. Before the end of the period, Ben St. Marseille and Jonathan Cyr set up Jonathon Masters' first of the year. Holding a 3-0 lead at the start of the second, the 73's were on their heels as the Bears came roaring back. Smiths Falls scored four straight goals to make it a 4-3 game in their favour. Giberson got his third goal of the season to tie it at four. Galasso and Carroll picked up the helpers. The action was back and forth in the third but Kemptville was in control, leading 5-4 until the dying seconds of the period. With 12 seconds on the clock and the Bears net empty, Smiths Falls got the shot that made it 5-all. At the 1:48 mark of overtime, the Bears concluded their comeback with the win, 6-5. Dean Galasso had a four-point night and was named the game's third star. On Sunday, Sept. 22, the 73's visited the Nepean Sportsplex to play the Raiders. The Raiders scored first, on the power play at the 4:52 mark. Four minutes later Dean Galasso, with his eighth of the year from Dylan Giberson and Brandon Seatter, tied the game. The Raiders scored another before the end of the period to take a 2-1 lead to the dressing room. In the second, the teams exchanged goals. Giberson notched his fifth of the year with the assist going to Hayden Hanson. With Nepean holding a 3-2 lead into the third, they scored three more times while Kemptville could only score one. Jesse Blais, after a clean faceoff win was allowed to come out front and scored easily. The goal was set up by Matt Martin and Seatter. The 73's outshot the Raiders but conceded four power play goals, which made the difference. Dylan Giberson was named third star of the game. Anniversary celebration There will be a 40th anniversary celebration of the Kemptville 73's. It will feature an alumni game of both Junior A and B players including members of the undefeated team. This will be followed up by a dance. Both events are being held on Saturday, Oct. 5 and admission

The Canadian total given for 2012 was 662,312 with Ontario residents contributing 255,661. Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse and is the largest Christmas project of its kind. Shoebox gifts are given to children suffering in war, poverty, famine, disease and natural disaster, regardless of race, gender, religion or ethnicity. Through the giving of this simple gift and message of hope, these young and often forgotten survivors learn they are loved. Samaritan’s Purse also provides disaster relief in countries around the world that are in need including Canada. They respond to humanitarian crises with physical aid and a message of hope. In Canada, their Disaster Response Units, several tractor trailers outfitted with generators, pumps, hand tools, and safety gear, equip staff and volunteers to help in a tangible way for Canadians in need. In central Ontario, heavy rains and melting ice and snow created a devastating combination. Samaritan’s Purse helped homeowners clean out and prepare their homes for rebuild when several communities in the Muskoka region were forced to declare states of emergency. In southern Alberta, record river levels and melting snow from the Rocky Mountains combined with heavy rainfall to produce major floods in the city of Calgary as well as other southern Alberta communities. Three Samaritan’s Purse Disaster Relief Units and multi-

tudes of volunteers responded to help affected communities. Samaritan’s Purse works in more than 100 countries worldwide, enabling them to take Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes to many places. Though they distribute boxes in those countries where they are working, if they are invited to bring boxes to other countries they will respond. Canadian boxes are usually sent to West Africa, Central America, and South America, as well as Haiti; and when requested, to other countries where, because of natural disasters or unexpected events, the shoe boxes are a powerful message of hope. Samaritan’s Purse also provides food, clothing, blankets, shelter, clean water, sleeping bags, medical supplies and hospital equipment. Filling a gift-filled shoe box is something personal that a Canadian can do to let a child, who has suffered greatly, know that he or she is valued. For many children, the shoebox is the only gift they have ever received, something many of us find hard to imagine, Operation Christmas Child brings hope for today, and Samaritan’s Purse provides resources for a better tomorrow. This year, the boxes will be shipped to Argentina, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Uruguay, Venezuela, Equatorial Guinea, Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Ivory Coast, Senegal, Sierra Leone and Haiti. What gifts go in the shoeboxes? • Toys: stuffed animals, dolls, building blocks, balls, small cars, musical items (harmonica, whistles, etc.) • School supplies: pens, pencils, sharpeners, crayons, coloured pencils, erasers, notebooks, colouring books, solar calculators • Hygiene products: toothbrushes (customs will not allow toothpaste), soap (placed in a plastic bag), hair brushes, combs, hair clips and acces-

sories, small towels, etc. • Other: individually wrapped hard candy in a sealable bag, clothing (Tshirts, socks, hats, gloves and scarfs), sunglasses, flip flops, toy jewelry or lightweight tools. • A personal note and/or a photo of yourself or your family is appreciated by the child receiving the box. Choose to pack your box for a girl or boy, ages two to four, five to nine, or 10 to 14. The $7 that is suggested you include, if you are able, is to help with the shipping of the boxes. You may receive a thank you letter from one of these precious children as others have in previous years. In Cuya, Guatemala, a single mother was crying as she thanked the Operation Christmas Child team for the gifts they brought to their community, especially the gift for her daughter. In her daughter’s shoebox was a pair of shoes which went perfectly with her school uniform. The mother had not known how she was going to afford to buy the shoes before the school year started, as she couldn’t find enough work to pay for them. Another young child in Africa with a gift of drawing but could not buy the supplies he needed received a box from a generous Canadian family who had filled it with materials that he could be used to continue his drawing. These boxes do make a great difference in children’s lives! Not only do they show that they haven’t been forgotten, but often are the answer to some physical need in their life. We are very fortunate to live in a country where help is available if we are in need but in these countries there is no help available. They have to scrape by with the bare necessities never being able to give their children those things that bring that special smile to their faces. See SHOEBOX page 31

What should be in a hunter’s backpack? • a reliable source of fire; • a whistle; • a compass with a map of the area; • a GPS with spare batteries; • a flashlight; • a small survival kit (sold in big box stores, the size of a tin of sardines); • a small first-aid kit; • rope; • brass wire (for building a shelter or a snare); • an orange garbage bag; • a water bottle; • trail marking tape. If the weather is cold, bring along a small thermos with a hot drink, and don’t forget a few energy bars or a snack. This pack should

be with you every time you step out into the bush. Think of it not as your suitcase, but as your survival kit; you should always have with you the basics you’d need to stay warm and protected if you ever lost your way or got injured and couldn’t walk out. Every time you go hunting, tell someone where you are going and when you plan to be back. Ensure that you contact this person in case of delay, either by cell or satellite phone or with the new satellite messenger technology, called “SPOT”. It is also recommended that hunters complete a first aid and survival course before venturing into the wilderness. Happy hunting!

DEER HUNTERS!

One of the most important pieces of equipment for hunters is a well-packed backpack or shoulder bag. Loaded with a few select essentials, it should be taken every time you go scouting or hunting. Be sure to choose a pack that is comfortable, weatherproof, and noiseless (doesn’t make swooshing sounds as you walk). Waterproof camouflage fabric is preferable but not essential. The extras you pack may depend on the distance you have to cover between your vehicle and your camp, but some articles should always stay in the pack. Here is a basic list of the items to be included: • a multi-purpose tool with a blade and small saw; • a survival blanket;

Three things to master As deer hunting season approaches, you’re likely beginning to feel the itch. This is a good time to review the secrets to a successful deer hunt. Sure, hunting’s not something you learn by the book, but better to brush up on theory than have to eat your pride with an empty freezer this fall. Taking care of details can make all the difference between returning home empty-handed or with pride written all over your face. SCENT A deer’s first line of defense is its sense of smell, so take every precaution to mask your own scents. A scent eliminator can be used on your clothes to remove any odors except for those present in the surrounding environment. Know how to take advantage of the wind by deciding which way it is blowing and where your game is travelling from before you set up your stand or blind. Pay careful attention to the lubricants that you use on your weapons. SOUND Deer have a very well developed sense of hearing, and any unusual noise can

startle them before you have a chance to shoot. Be sure to minimize any abnormal sounds coming from your stand or blind that could give you away. Wear a safety vest made of fabric rather than noisy vinyl or plastic. MOVEMENT A deer does not use its vision as much at its A good hunter always carries a sense of smell and hearing, but it is still a fac- backpack that contains a few estor that should not be neglected.

Ultimate anti-hero rules the big screen once again MOVIE: Riddick: Rule the Dark STARRING: Vin Diesel, Jordi Molla, Matt Nable, Katee Sackhoff and Dave Bautista DIRECTOR: David Twohy RATING: PG Arts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of interesting to be cheering for the murderous psychopath. Though I suppose that was always the charm of the Riddick films. Betrayed by the Necromongers Riddick (Vin Diesel) is left for dead on a strange and harsh world. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the kind of planet where death waits for the unwary. In other words Riddick is right at home. Riddick claws his way back from the brink of death. Then he claws his way to the top of the food chain. Eventually he finds a mercenary outpost, and sends out a distress call making sure anyone who hears it knows who sent it. Then he waits. It isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t long before two mercenary groups show up. The

My Take MARK HASKINS

first rag tag group, led by Santana (Jordi Molla), is only interested in killing Riddick and claiming the reward. The second more disciplined team, led by Boss Johns (Matt Nable), seems to be after something else. Riddick doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care what they want. All he wants is one of their ships, and as long as they give it to him he wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t kill them all. Neither group is about to give up a ship, but Riddick knows something they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. He knows the rains are coming, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seen what the rains bring. If they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get off this planet before the storm hits no oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting off.

Riddick: Rule the Dark takes us right back to the beginning. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Riddick versus the monsters in a battle that completely recaptures the intensity and thrill of the first film. It has those same elements of horror, action and that same twisted humour. Of course this time around weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all well acquainted with the character of Riddick so the fun here is watching him do what he does best. You almost feel sorry for the mercs. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pretty decent cast set up to be fodder for Riddick. Jordi Molla opens things up nicely as Santana. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not easy to play the kind of a psychopath that makes Riddick seem a

hero and provide comic relief, but Molla does an excellent job. Matt Nable does a fair job of portraying the straight and narrow soldier, and Dave Bautista provides a great climactic fight scenes. Then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Katee Sackhoff who plays Dahl. She steals her fair share of the spotlight with some great lines and a mean right hook. Of course this is really the Vin Diesel show. Riddick is one of the great anti-heroes, and I love the way Diesel plays him. When heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in character everything about him becomes dangerous. In this third installment Diesel hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lost a step or that air of menace. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never a doubt that Riddick is the most dangerous thing in the dark. Riddick is a slick film that gets back to its roots while it opens up possibilities for the future. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait for the next one. Mark Haskinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; column is a regular feature of the EMC.

KING John Kenneth (Retired Almonte doctor passes away) Our dear father passed away on September 22, 2013, at the age of 84 on the Rosamond Wing of the Almonte General Hospital following complications due to a stroke and Alzheimer’s Disease. Born in Moncton, N.B., April 8, 1929, son of the late John and Pearl King, twin brother to Barry, Jean and the late Dorothy King. He was the beloved husband to Alma (nee Cooley) for 58 years and the father to John (Marilyn), Tim (Pam) and Heather (David). Dad graduated from UNB in 1950 with his BSc in Biology and from McGill in 1954 where he obtained his medical degree. John interned (general surgery) for five years in Montreal and Saint John, New Brunswick. A request for a locum from Dr. R. Bach brought Dad to Almonte, in 1959. A one year locum turned into 47 years of medical practice and devotion to the people of Almonte. We are convinced that if Dad were not faced by the challenges of Alzheimer’s that he would still be practicing medicine today. Dad was an accomplished athlete in many sports, excelling in track and rugby and was inducted into the Fredericton Sports Wall of Fame in 1999 along with his relay team that won the Canadian Championship in 1947. Even when Dad was not working directly with his patients he was involved in charity work through the Masons (Mississippi Lodge No. 147) and the Knights Templar in Alymer for 40 years. Dad’s intellectual mind, sense of humour, his caring and compassionate manner impacted many lives over the span of his life. Family and Friends Celebrated Dad’s Life at C. R. GAMBLE FUNERAL HOME & CHAPEL INC. 127 Church St., Almonte, ON. 613-256-3313 on Wednesday, September 25, 2013 from 11am to 1pm. Celebration of Life occurred the same day in the Chapel at 1pm. Reception followed in the Comba Suite of Gamble Funeral Home. Private family inurnment. A special thanks goes out to all the staff at the Rosamond Wing in Almonte who made Dad’s last days peaceful and who were an incredible support to our family. Thank-you to Dr. H. Abramenko for her medical attention over the years and to a special care-giver, Nancy Munro who has been a tremendous help to our family. If desired, John’s family would appreciate memorial donations to the Alzheimer’s Society. Condolences & Tributes www.crgamble.com

COE, Charlie In loving memory of my dear husband, Charlie, who passed away September 27, 2011.

In tears we saw you sinking, And watched you pass away, Our hearts were almost broken, We wanted you to stay. But when we saw you sleeping, So peaceful free from pain, How could we wish you back with us, To suffer that again? It broke our hearts to lose you, But you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go alone, For part of us went with you, The day God took you home.

We made our vows together, And said â&#x20AC;&#x153;till death do we partâ&#x20AC;? So when God came and took your hand, My whole life fell apart. No one knows the heartache, I try so hard to hide, No one knows how many times, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve broken down and cried. When I look back upon our lives, Just one thing makes me glad, That you chose me to share with you, The precious years we had.

We little knew that morning, That God was going to call your name, In life we loved you dearly, In death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, But you did not go alone; For part of us went with you, The day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, Your love is still our guide; And though we cannot see you, You are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, And nothing seems the same; But as God calls us one by one, The chain will link again. Forever loved and always in our hearts Your Family

A million times weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve needed you, A million time weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve cried, If love could have saved you, You never would have died. Things we feel most deeply, Are the hardest things to say, Our dearest one we loved you, In a very special way. If we could have one lifetime wish, The dream that could come true, Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d pray to God with all our heart, For yesterday and you. Love, Dad and Mom

There is a family who misses you And finds time long since you went. We think of you daily and hourly But try to be brave and content. Tears that we shed are in silence And we breath a sigh of regret, For you were ours and we remember Though all the world forgets. Always in our hearts, Nick, Kyle & Kassie Dad, Mom & Chris Cindy, John & Dana.

Learn about computers, Internet at Algonquin College Perth Campus Community – If you’ve always struggled to find files in your computer or to email pictures to your grandchildren in Calgary, now’s the time to learn how to navigate through your computer and be a confident user of the Internet. The Algonquin College Perth Campus will host computer and Internet courses this fall, as part of its fall 2013 Continuing Education program.

From Computers for Beginners to Internet: Beyond the Basics, there are four mini-courses scheduled to allow participants to get a full understanding of the course content without having to commit to an extended period of time. Algonquin College Perth Campus instructors Tanya Gray and Anita Warwick-Wall are well versed in computers and they make the learning process fun, ultimately eliminat-

ing the intimidation factor. “When students first come to class, they’re often worried they won’t be able to keep up,” explains Gray. “So it’s really gratifying to see them navigate confidently through the computer system and around the Internet by the time we’re wrapping up the course.” New this year is the computer help workshops, which take place Sept. 30 and Nov. 18. The college is hosting these two separate workshops this

fall, allowing up to 12 participants to register and get one-on-one guidance from an instructor on specific questions related to their own computer and needs. Participants will be able to email their questions ahead of time and the two-hour session will be the perfect opportunity to get their questions answered. For community members who want to build up their resumé, they can enroll in the Microsoft Office courses

scheduled for this fall. The courses include Microsoft Office for Beginners, Microsoft Office Advanced and Microsoft PowerPoint. The Continuing Education courses are offered to anyone over 18 years of age and registration is now open. Ready to register?

Shoreline stewardship manager serves Westport and Area Fall Colours as guest speaker at Oct. 2 RLHS meeting Studio Tour unfolds Oct. 12 to 14 By YVONNE HELWIG

Community – A shoreline stewardship manager with the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority (RVCA) is the guest speaker at the Oct. 2 meeting of the Rideau Lakes Horticultural Society. Andrea Kymko’s presentation will cover the importance of natural shorelines and ways to protect water quality while limiting shoreline erosion. As well, she will discuss how to establish a shoreline buffer using native plants. Kymko has a Bachelor of Science from Trent University with a joint major in Biology and Environmental Science. She started with RVCA in 2006 as a conser-

vation lands technician, and soon moved into managing the lake planning program. In this capacity, she actively partners with local lake associations and other government agencies throughout eastern Ontario to develop community action plans on shoreline stewardship. Rideau Lakes Horticultural Society meetings are the first Wednesday of the month at 7:15 p.m. at the Portland Community Hall (24 Water Street, Portland). Admission is free to society members ($15 annually for 9 meetings a year) and $5 a meeting for non-members. Refreshments and door prizes are provided following the guest speaker.

Tickets to the society’s annual Christmas dinner, open to anyone, will also be on sale at the Oct. 2 meeting. The dinner is Tuesday, Dec. 3 at 6 p.m. at the Westport Legion. The $25 ticket includes hors d’oeuvres, turkey dinner, dessert and beverages, as well as entertainment by the Celtic Combo. Tickets are also available through Janette Berry at 613-273-3560 or janby@googley. net.
