New – North Grenville’s generosity made this Christmas season a special one for Christina Horning and her family. Two years of planning and several months of hard work was celebrated on Saturday, Dec. 14 as the North Grenville community came together to officially hand over a new home to the local woman and her three young children, Rylynn, Raven and Ryker. The home is the first Habitat for Humanity Thousands Islands, (HFHTI) project in North Grenville. The new home is located on Dunbrille Street. The build is the ninth one for Habitat for Humanity Thousand Islands. The organization has built homes in Brockville, Prescott, Newboro, Athens and Gananoque. The dedication ceremony took place at Leslie Hall in Kemptville. “Just so you know there is going to be a lot of thanking today,” said Christina Horning as she spoke to all of the volunteers, builders and committee members who made the build such a success. “As I stand here now

with this beautiful house and think back to the beginning of this year, I am amazed how far I have come in such a short time,” said Horning. She told her audience that she was living in another city, struggling to raise her two young girls, Rylynn and Raven, and her newborn son Ryker. “I guess the one word that sums up how I felt is ‘unsupported’,” she said. “I had social support, which I was thankful for, but the people you normally rely on and have the unconditional support and love lived so far away. It was really tough being a single mother of three and being so far from family. I needed and longed to be closer and have a sense of belonging.” One person who had remained a dedicated supporter of her and her family was Christina’s aunt, Bev Bonner. She suggested that Christina bring her family to Kemptville. “It’s a beautiful place to live and I would finally be close to family,” explained Horning. While the Horning family was going about its business of making a life, fate was on a collision course with them. See HABITAT page K30

Community – The local community came together to support Clayton woman, Dew Rotor, who recently underwent a double lung transplant, during a fundraising concert and dance Dec. 14 at the Carleton Place Arena. Above, singer-songwriter Brea Lawrenson was one of the evening’s performers. The event raised $2,000.

Community – The Build a Mountain of Food campaign has gone from the size of Foley Mountain to Mount Everest, thanks to the generosity of the community. Hugh Colton, organizer of the food blitz that now incorporates 11 communities, said he was floored by the donations on the final blitz weekend, but on Monday, he was still going strong picking up even more donations of food and cash for local food banks. “The community is coming through, full bore at 5,000 miles per hour on eight cylinders,� he said Monday afternoon. “I’m going to keep going until Dec. 23.� Last weekend, the Town and Country Chrysler Caravan of food was on site in Athens and then in Delta. At their morning site, the troops collected some $4,014.95 in cash donations and 675 pounds of food. They received a $1,000 donation from the Lions Club, another $500 from the Athens Royal Canadian Legion, $480 from the United Church Women, $600 from the Addison United Church Women and $425 from the Toledo Legion, Colton said. Add to that, another $1,200 in donations and the remainder

was dropped into the donation bin for the big numbers from Athens. In Delta Saturday afternoon, Colton and company received another 630 pounds of food and $2,036 in cash donations, including a $500 donation from the Old Bastards Motorcycle Club, $70 from the Leeds and Grenville Stewardship Council (together with 100 pounds of food), and donations from the Red Knights and the Delta United Church, to name a few. The campaign totals reached 91,582 pounds in donations by the end weekend, with cash donations hitting $35,782.18. “Then we hit the ground running this morning and all hell broke loose,� Colton said. In a friendly competition between two retirement homes in Smiths Falls, Van Horne Manor topped the donations to the campaign with a total of 225 pounds of food collected with $1,026.96 in cash. Willowdale collected 185 pounds of food and added $964.10 in cash to that total. Colton made his way to the Gallipeau Centre after that pickup where he obtained another 200 pounds of food and $75 in cash from their children’s Christmas event on the weekend. “Then we went out to Lombardy school where they collected 1,247 pounds of food,� Colton added. “It’s

been unbelievable.â€? He still has some stops this week as the caravan will be back in Perth on Thursday for Brownlee’s Metro hamper campaign and the Royal LePage pickup. “I haven’t added what we’re doing here at the dealership,â€? he said. “There is another 500 pounds that has not been added into that total.â€? He has also not yet heard from Advanced Alarm Systems in Smiths Falls, or from his buddies at Century 21. “I think they’re just sitting back and waiting to see what we’ve got,â€? he said. “Then they may help bring it over the top (100,000 pounds).â€? When asked what the biggest surprise has been in this year’s food blitz, Colton says it’s the people. “I can’t believe the generosity of the people,â€? he said. “It’s been so overwhelming. It’s not Foley Mountain anymore, it’s Everest. Every year, they all just blow me away. I’m so proud of us as a group and I really like that we’re doing a good thing.â€? Colton added that if we can take away the stigma of needing to use a food bank, the better off we will be as a society. “When a senior who can’t afford to eat, or a child who hasn’t had breakfast gets the food they need, in a non-judgmental way, then we have broken down that wall‌ that’s a good thing.â€?

‘Beck to the Future’ as county council chooses former warden Kidd to lead Public works chairman battle as voting goes to second ballot after first ballot tie By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

News – Beckwith Township Reeve Richard Kidd, who led Lanark County as warden back in 2003, is the new warden for 2014. Kidd was elected to replace outgoing warden Bill Dobson of Montague Township, beating off challenges from Lanark Highlands Deputy Mayor Brian Stewart and Mississippi Mills Mayor John Levi. “The fourth year of this council will be our best because we are coming together as a team,” said Kidd, after he was sworn in at the county council chambers in Perth on Tuesday, Dec. 17. He took great pride that his grandson Duncan, an infant in his mother’s arms at the back of the room, was on hand to witness his grandfather being elected to lead the county. In his election speech, with his nominators already having listed his previous and current titles, Kidd said he wanted to tell council something that they did not know about him: that he used to be the treasurer of the Ontario Agriculture Museum in Milton, Ont., and that used to teach beekeeping at Kemptville College. He admitted that a lot had changed since he was first elected warden about a decade ago, with the county’s debt rising from “nearly zero,” to more than $14 Photo by DESMOND DEVOY million, though it is going back down. Administrative staff has also doubled Beckwith Township Reeve Richard Kidd is sworn in Leslie Drynan at the council chambers on Tuesday, since then. as the new warden of Lanark County by deputy clerk Dec. 17.

“There have been changes since 2003. I have changed since 2003,” he said. “I wouldn’t have worn a purple shirt (in 2003),” he joked, before adding that “it is an honour to come here,” since he is amazed “how much we learn from each other. It is an ongoing education sitting here.” His own family had long been involved in politics, with his father and grandfather having held elected office. Kidd’s challenger, Levi, also trumpeted his family’s political connections – his father was the township clerk, and the clerk’s office was set up in the Levi family home in Pakenham, so young John got to see politics up close and first hand. Back in 1965, his own uncle Harvey was elected county warden. Levi stressed that he wanted to continue “seeking efficiencies while maintaining service levels that we have today.” Stewart said that his decision to run was “not taken lightly,” and he too echoed Levi’s call for fiscal sobriety. “In the current economic climate, I believe it is essential to build on the efficiencies we have achieved in the last two years,” Stewart said. “(We) must have a good quality of life, but it must be sustainable.”

Benefits planned for Elphin family who lost home in July fire Community – On July 29, the Davidson family suffered from a terrible blaze that destroyed their home, business, and vehicle in Elphin. The family is currently living in a cabin that is not equipped for winter with no running water, electricity, and an outdoor bathroom 75 feet away. A trust fund was set up through Scotiabank by asking to donate to the Lanark branch, for donations from the community to be submitted. Cheques can be made payable to Jesse Claassen, in trust for the Davidson family. Citizens can show their support by joining the Davidson Family Trust Facebook page. This fire has majorly impacted the Davidson family and completely turned their lives upside down. They have been forced to move from a 3,600 square foot home to a 600 square foot cabin. They lost their two cats in the fire and all of their belongings including wedding rings, baby photos, clothes. Three of their four sons have autism and it has been especially hard for them to cope with all of the changes. In 2014 there will be some fundraisers to help the Davidson family earn the $200,000 needed to rebuild their home. In February, Jenny Whitely is organizing a dance and or concert. In the spring, they are having a garage sale fundraiser at Paulscreek.ca where household items in good condition can be donated. Call 613-278-2618 before dropping off items to let the family know the day and time. Smaller donations can go to Kerri Keeney at LanarkLiving.ca Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Classic Theatre Festival’s charitable program gets new name Arts – Ever since Perth’s Classic Theatre Festival began performing hits from the golden age of Broadway in 2010, it has maintained a program that opens up blocks of free seats, making professional theatre accessible to all members of the community, regardless of income. Begun with a grant from the Perth & District Community Foundation, the Classic Theatre Festival’s Save-a-Seat program has offered more than 600 free theatre tickets to individuals who can access them at the Salvation Army, through Lanark County Social Services, The Table, YAK, and various other agencies that serve residents surviving on limited incomes. Other groups have included First Nations Deer Lake evacuees who were then being housed in Smiths Falls, and residents of women’s shelters. “The program was originally inspired by a 2009 letter to the editor we saw in the Perth Courier,” explains artistic director Laurel Smith. “Sue Cavanagh of Lanark County Child and Youth Poverty Action Network discussed in poignant detail the opportunities missed by at least 12 per cent of children in Lanark County who cannot go to birthday parties, attend after school activities, have a pet, enjoy the arts, and, on a more direct level, miss out on one or more meals in a day.” “It was a reminder that behind the gorgeous facades of Heritage Perth and the other communities in Lanark, we have a hidden poverty that is not just economically marginalizing, it is also socially isolating. Save-a-Seat breaks that social isolation and can serve as a step into re-integrating into the community. Some of those who first met us through Save-a-Seat have become

Smith also points out that the Classic Theatre Festival serves as a significant economic driver in the summer, bringing thousands of tourists to town whose spending in stores, restaurants, and accommodations has a positive economic impact that results in increased employment and related social benefits. Following a partnership with the Perth Museum last summer that featured a Canadian Theatre History exhibit, Save-a-Seat was renamed in honour of the parents of the festival’s associate producer, Matthew Behrens. “The Deborah Cass/Bunny Behrens Save-a-Seat program was named for my parents because they toured this country with Canadian Players in the early years of the Stratford Festival, bringing theatre to the people and making this magi-

cal experience accessible to all,” said Matthew Behrens. “They were also very committed to the idea of social justice and equality, so we figured that combination of community commitment and artistic excellence should be remembered in an active, living program like Save-a-Seat.” Bunny Behrens lived at Lanark Lodge until he passed away in September 2012, but during his time in Perth was memorable as a raconteur whose stories of the golden age of Canadian and British theatre included his own early days at the Bristol Old Vic, where he acted with (and was also a drinking buddy of) the late Peter O’Toole, who passed away last week.

To order, call 1-877-283-1283.

Remember: Ice hut registration is required on area lakes News – To protect the environment and ensure safety, anglers must register new or previously unregistered ice-fishing huts on area lakes. Registration is free and helps discourage anglers from abandoning their huts, which can end up in waterways and washed up on shorelines when the ice thaws. Huts must be registered Zones 12, 18 and 20 in Kemptville District. To register your ice hut in Zones 12, 18 and 20, call the local ministry office at 613-258-8204. Generally, this may be done over the telephone. Once registered, an ice fishing hut can be used anywhere in Ontario. Registration numbers on ice huts must be at least 6.3 centimetres (2.5 inches) in height and clearly displayed on the outside of the hut. Tent-style ice huts made of cloth or synthetic fabric that have a base area of seven square metres (75.4 square feet) or less when erected do not need to be registered.

It’s a good idea to place huts on 15-centimetre (six-inch) high wooden blocks to make it easier to remove them at the end of the season. Ice hut owners must keep the area around their huts clear of garbage. Anglers must remove ice huts from the waters of Zone 20 by March 1. Huts in Zone 12 below the Lake Timiskaming Dam and in Zone 18 must be removed by March 15. Ice huts must be removed from lakes before ice break-up, even if it is before the specified removal date. It is an offence under the Public Lands Act to leave an ice hut after ice breakup. For ice hut registration in other districts, please refer to the 2013 Recreational Fishing Regulations Summary at ontario.ca/fishing. For more information on ice hut registration and requirements, contact your local ministry office. Submitted by the Ministry of Natural Resources, Kemptville District. R0012470786_1219

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

Cut the chains and spend locally this holiday season DEAR EDITOR: With the holidays fast approaching, this means one thing, the biggest retail expenditure of the year is also coming. People will start to get really excited, and then get really stressed. But, what if, this year, we don’t let the holidays stress us out? What if we get back to what really matters this year, and spend our time with those we love, instead of spending our money on material items that may be thrown to the back of a closet by boxing day? This year, I propose that we cut the chains on the expectations that the holidays are all about buy, buy, buy, and we get back to tradition of experiencing great moments with loved ones. Friends of the Earth is challenging us to “Cut the Chains” which means we leave behind the chain stores, the expectations that we need to buy something for everyone and get creative!

Leave the plastic behind, and make each other gifts. I recommend ‘experience’ gift cards, promising your time and services. For those who aren’t very art oriented, how about checking out a craft market and buying local? The most important thing, I believe, is to cut the expectation that the holidays are about the quantity of money you spend, not the quality of time you spend with those who matter. I invite you and your readers to sign the “Cut the Chains” challenge on Friends of the Earth’s website (foecanada.org) and post your photos about how you cut the chains this year on their Facebook (facebook. com/foe.canada). Happy holidays! Micaela Buchnea-Chew Friends of the Earth

COMMENTARY

Give the gift of life Editorial – Everyone could use a holiday miracle and Canadian Blood Services (CBS) is asking the public to give the gift of life this Christmas season. The organization is in the midst of its annual Holiday Miracle campaign, which runs from Dec. 2 to Jan. 4, where they seek blood donations from across the country. There is no greater need than over the holidays and winter months for blood. In fact, more than 75,000 blood donations are required for hospital patients from one end of the country to the other over the campaign. It’s one of the easiest things we can do: give blood. It costs nothing and can save multiple lives. A few minutes of minor discomfort could give another person back the quality of life they once had and reunite them with their family. What greater reason is there? People don’t know who their donations go to, but there’s satisfaction in knowing that one good deed could help another. We don’t know when or if we’ll need the favour returned, but chances are a blood donor has helped someone in your family at one time. Canadian Blood Services is asking residents to consider making a special donation this holiday, by calling 1 888 2 DONATE to book an appointment at a clinic or www.blood.ca. They also love hearing success stories, so share yours on their Facebook page or on Twitter (#giveamiracle). Companies can also consider “adopting a recipient” and make the number of donations one anonymous person would need, as a group. It can take up to eight donations a week to treat a person with leukemia, so why not rally your friends or co-workers and make a group donation?

Mother’s memories made her sombre during holidays Lifestyle – My sister Audrey, I thought, was the smartest girl at the Northcote School. And I knew for a fact, she was the smartest of us five children. Couldn’t she braid grass, knit dishcloths, do crossstitch on tea towels, and recite the Lord’s Prayer and the 23rd Psalm without forgetting a word? And so that day in December, it was my very clever sister Audrey who told me a secret about our mother, that I believed with all my heart to be the gospel truth. And it also explained much as well, why Mother did the things she did on occasion. Audrey said there was a perfectly good reason why Mother’s mind sometimes seemed to be a million miles away that time of year. I certainly was aware that her thoughts often seemed to be somewhere else, especially when I asked her a question about our own Christmas which was coming up, and which filled me with great anticipation. And the day I asked her if she thought, if I wrote a special letter to Santa Claus, and asked him for a pair of white galoshes with real fur down the fronts, just like bad Marguirite had, would I get them,

and I saw a sadness come over her face. She didn’t answer right away, and when she did, I noticed a catch in her throat, as if she was going to cough, and she said I had to remember that Santa had a long list of children who wanted some things he just couldn’t supply. And I knew then, I wouldn’t be seeing the white rubber galoshes with the fur down their fronts. I wasn’t too sure what Mother had to do with Santa’s decision. But I soon understood what my sister meant when she said sometimes our mother’s mind was a million miles away. It was mid-December. Time to put up the few decorations we had. There was the braided rope made of thin cardboard loops glued together and strung across the kitchen, corner to corner. There were the two handmade wreaths for the frosted kitchen windows, and the big picture of Santa thumbtacked to the stairwell door. Mother sat and looked at what had been done to try to make the kitchen (the only room in the house warm enough to sit in during the winter), presentable for the holiday season, and she let out a long sigh. Audrey said Mother was rememVice President & Regional Publisher Mike Mount mmount@perfprint.ca 613-283-3182, ext. 104

bering the many Christmas decorations she had when she lived in New York, and which she had described to my sister... things like silver bells for the outside of the door, candlesticks made of pure white wax, and glass holders in the shape of small pine trees for the dining room table. We didn’t even have a dining room on the farm in Northcote! Audrey said this time of year, Mother tried, but couldn’t get her Christmases in New York out of her mind. She remembered shopping in Macy’s department store, money to buy just about anything she wanted, glass decorations for the big tree in the parlour, and wrapping paper and ribbon in every colour in the rainbow to wrap the many presents she would buy.

The way Audrey explained it, I knew then that Mother secretly pined for all that she had left behind in her beloved New York City, to come to the backwoods of Renfrew County...where every penny was hard earned. And instead of going to the city bank for money, Mother went to the blue sugar bowl in the backto-the-wall cupboard to take out a few pennies from her “egg money.” And my sister said it was sometimes a sad time for Mother, even though the rest of the family was all caught up in the Christmas spirit out there in Renfrew County. Audrey said I wasn’t to think it was anything I had done to make mother sad. And that made me feel better. Not a lot better. But a little better, just the same. And my very wise sister said to me that I was to try to make our mother forget about her life in that far away city. And it had nothing to do about being good she said. It had everything to do with trying to keep Mother’s mind busy in our home out there in Northcote. And I asked Audrey how I could do that. And being clever like she was, my sister had the perfect answer.

I was to say often how pretty the kitchen was with its handmade paper streamers stretched across the room...how I loved the smell of her mincemeat pies... and how I loved going into Renfrew with her when she delivered her wares door to door. That seemed simple enough to me. And I like to think it worked. That year was not unlike any other Christmas on the farm during those lean Depression days. As the day grew closer, Mother’s mood changed. Baking consumed many hours. We five children could hardly contain our excitement. The Christmas concert was ahead of us, the smell of the big pine tree already in the corner of the kitchen filled the room, and there were whispers of secrets not to be shared. There was joy in the house. We would be celebrating the true meaning of Christmas in the Lutheran Church. Neighbours would come and go, and we would return their visits. And Mother, for a time, put behind her the memories of another time and another place. Interested in an electronic version of Mary’s books?

CDSBEO fostering mathematics development within schools News – The following are highlights from the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario’s (CDSBE) regular board meeting Nov. 19 at the board office in Kemptville. In our daily lives we rely immeasurably on mathematical skills, whether it is understanding election results, developing a business plan, or managing a household budget. The CDSBEO is engaging in collaborative work focused on student learning and achievement through reflection, dialogue, and inquiry in the area of mathematics. Specific teaching strategies are also helping prepare all graduates to use mathematics in their everyday world. Support staff and school teams continue to analyze EQAO results, carefully looking for patterns and trends, examining cohort data, gender gap and special education needs, to help identify intervention plans and research based strategies that will support individual and small group student learning. Superintendent of School Effectiveness, Charlotte Rouleau, presented an overview of one specific strategy that the board is currently using to address mathematics. The senior team, along with

program update In September of this school year, the board launched two new Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) programs in hospitality and tourism at St. Luke Catholic High School (CHS), and St. Matthew Catholic Secondary School. By participating in the SHSM program, students are able to customize their secondary school education to suit their interests and talents, while developing specialized knowledge, skills, and sector specific certifications. Pathways consultant, Leo Haughian, presented to the board an update on the two new programs, as well as additional information on student data from the other SHSM programs. The board currently offers 19 SHSM programs, in seven economic sector specializations (arts & culture, business, construction, environment, health & wellness, hospitality & tourism, and transportation). In addition to allowing students to customize their education, the SHSM program also helps learners to develop essential skills and work habits, and to identify, explore and refine their career goals so that informed decisions can be made regarding future career Specialist High Skills Major choices. school administrators, are engaging in collaborative work through instructional rounds. The instructional rounds involve observing, analyzing and discussing classroom activity. Principals and superintendents focus on documenting student thinking; capturing what is happening at the student desk. Research indicates that having principals and superintendents collaborate in professional learning networks allows teachers to experience powerful professional development. Principals must understand and know details of impactful job-embedded learning through inquiry. These collaborative networks engage administrators and guide instructional practice through a deeper understanding of the challenges that exist. Each superintendent received a math resource kit to help maximize network learning through careful planning and targeted professional development. Administrators and educators will continue to spark dialogue and debate on how to develop a mathematical habit of mind, for both students and educators alike.

The programs are meant for all four pathway choices: workplace, apprentice, college and university. “Programs rely on community partnerships,” explained Haughian. “Students gain exposure to partners, and have the opportunity to attend job site tours, skills competitions, and job placements.” For some students, the new programs at St. Luke CHS and St. Matthew CSS have made a significant impact. At St. Luke CHS, many students are workplace and college bound, and the new Hospitality & Tourism program has allowed for learners to become more engaged. Attendance rates for the course are at nearly 100 per cent, and the specialization offers many opportunities for cooperative education in the industry. At St. Matthew CSS, the students have become equally as engaged, and the program even maintains their own garden, growing much of the food which is prepared in class. Schools are currently in dialogue as to whether or not to apply for new program offerings, with the possibility of

Kraft Hockeyville competition kicks off for another year

Health unit alerts public to be cautious during cold weather Lifestyle – The Leeds Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit alerts the public to take appropriate precautions during the cold weather. Some conditions during cold weather can cause very serious health conditions and even death. When the daily predicted high temperature is lower than -15 degrees C, unprotected skin can freeze in under 30 minutes, and the risk of developing hypothermia is very high. During very cold weather, everyone is at risk; however the elderly, infants and children, people taking certain prescription medications, and people with preexisting health conditions are in greater danger. There is also an increased risk of hypothermia for outdoor workers and people living without adequate heat or shelter. During these cold temperatures, the health unit strongly encourages the public to check on a neighbour or friend who may be isolated, disabled, or living alone and have a greater risk of suffering cold weather related injuries. The health unit also encourages homeless people to get in from the cold. During cold weather everyone should take the following precautions: • Wear layers of warm dry clothing including a hat, mitts, and a layer to block the wind

• Drink warm non-alcoholic beverages, non-caffeinated beverages such as herbal teas, apple cider or soup. • Cover exposed skin surfaces when outdoors • Maintain a heated environment of around 20 degrees C/68 degrees F • Be aware of how your medications or health conditions may increase your risk • Be aware of the early signs of frostbite: white or gray spots on skin or areas having lost feeling. Tingling and pain can also be a warning sign of frostbite usually in the hands, feet, nose and ears. • Beware of the early signs of hypothermia: unable to think clearly, shivering, loss of memory, lethargy slurred speech or loss of consciousness. Immediate medical attention is required. • Be aware of the dangers of using an oven or space heater as a heating device. For more information on how to protect yourself during extreme cold visit the health unit website at: www. healthunit.org. For specific cold weather questions call the Health Action Line at 1-800-660-5853 or 613-345-5685. You can also Like LGLHealthUnit on Facebook for weather related updates.

of repairs or upgrades. More than 90 per cent (91 per cent) of those surveyed say their overall community would be negatively impacted if their rink were to close due to disrepair. “Local rinks are at the heart of Canadian communities but we may run the risk of losing many of these precious centres if they are not repaired or restored for future generations,” said Jack Hewitt, vice-president of marketing insight and services with Kraft Canada. “Kraft Hockeyville engages Canadians to preserve the spirit and passion

for hockey across the nation, and that passion starts at the home rink.” A hockey legend agrees. “I wouldn’t be who I am today without my local rink. Even now, it remains a huge part of my life,” said Wendel Clark, Canadian hockey legend and Kraft Hockeyville 2014 spokesperson. “Kraft Hockeyville helps people keep things afloat. It helps towns keep rinks, fix them up and keep them community oriented.” This year, there is an even bigger opportunity for Canada’s communities to breathe new life

into their local rinks through Kraft Hockeyville 2014, in partnership with the NHL and NHL Player’s Association (NHLPA). The program is back and bigger than ever, awarding a total of $1 million in prizes to 16 different communities, including: • One grand prize of $100,000 in arena upgrades and a broadcast of a NHL pre-season game played in the local community; • One prize of $100,000 in arena upgrades; • Two prizes of $50,000 each in arena upgrades for third and fourth place; and

• Twelve prizes of $25,000 each in arena upgrades. Canadian communities are invited to start preparing their submissions to vie for the title of Kraft Hockeyville 2014 with the nomination period opening Jan. 1. Submissions will be accepted until Feb. 9. For contest rules and complete program details, please visit www.krafthockeyville.ca. Kraft Hockeyville can also be found on Facebook (www.facebook. com/krafthockeyville) and Twitter (@hockeyville).

Lifestyle – Lanark Animal Welfare Society (LAWS) would like to extend our gratitude for all of the support from the community during the Aviva Community Challenge over the past few months. Because of the community votes, LAWS has succeeded in entering the finals for this amazing challenge which means an automatic $5,000 from Aviva Canada Inc. and the opportunity to win up to $150,000. The winners will be announced on Jan. 28 so stay tuned. LAWS takes in the abandoned animals in the community and provides shelter, food/water and care to those animals. Quite often costly emergency veterinary care is required for these animals as well. This emergency veterinary care was recently required for one of LAWS’ newest resident cats, CJ Sparrow. CJ was brought to the shelter by a concerned citizen who had noticed this young guy wandering in the cold on his property. When the gentleman got a closer look of this guy it was noticed that CJ’s right eye was badly damaged and he was quite thin. The concerned citizen brought CJ to the shelter and CJ was immediately taken to the veterinarian for immediate attention. After examination, the veterinarian assumed that CJ had been kicked in the head by a horse or cow as his right eye needed to be removed. In addition to his damaged eye, his upper jaw had been fractured to the point where the hard pallet in his mouth needed to be sutured closed.

The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have devine power to demolish strongholds.

Saying thank you to our hardworking community volunteers spending days painting and upgrading the theatre itself for no other remuneration than their own satisfaction of making their community theatre better. Add the incredible amount of time the actors put in with learning their parts, rehearsals, giving up their own personal family, recreational and social time to put together quality productions for the public’s entertainment, the hours are staggering and truly remarkable. I share this as only one example because there are several other community theatres throughout our areas doing the same type things. I don’t think as we attend performances we realize just how much volunteer time goes into what we have the privilege to enjoy. My involvement with Stewart Park Festival in Perth every summer helps me realize the need for more than 100 volunteers to keep it happening for the three days during the weekend. A small committee meet year round to keep everything moving forward from one year to the next. There are also many summer festivals throughout our area who host similar type entertainment events that rely on their own core groups to continue for us each year. We, as communities are enriched by the artistic affluence and variety of experiences available, mostly thanks to the support of volunteers. Service club members like Legions, Civitan and the Lions Club raise funds to help sup-

port their communities and keep their halls viable and available for use, enabling affordable space for groups to host fundraising dances, bingos and family wedding receptions. None of these spaces would be there if it weren’t for the dedication of those volunteers. Besides the creative arts there are, of course, volunteers everywhere. Coaches, various group leaders, committee members, hospital volunteers, the list is extensive when you really think about it. To those who do volunteer, please know you all make a big difference in each of our communities. Statistics Canada has conducted the Canada Survey of Giving, Volunteering and Participating every three years since 1997. From the 2010 highlights it indicates “13.3 million Canadians over the age of 15 participated in volunteering, an increase of more than 800,000 since 2007.” These Canadians contributed 2.1 billion total volunteer hours, static since 2007. However, average annual volunteer hours decreased to 156 in 2010 from 166 in 2007. According to Statistics Canada, “the num-

ber of hours volunteered varied from one hour to a few thousand hours.” For many years, it has shown that the majority of volunteer hours are contributed by a small group of “über volunteers”. The 2010 data, however, suggests this trend is changing and the volunteer base is broadening”. It also shows, if you want something done, ask a busy person as our communities have many of those “über volunteers” who get amazing things completed and coordinated so we as the public can enjoy the incredible variety of productions throughout our communities. So, to those who volunteer to make all those wonderful events happen, I salute you and give

thanks, on behalf of all who benefit from your charitable volunteerism. It is so important we keep attending and supporting these events throughout our areas to ensure the continuance of the vast variety of entertainment that’s available to us. Variety is the spice of life and we are so blessed to have those who share so much of their energy, creativity and free time. We should all be doing our part. Season’s greetings to one and all.

Lifestyle – As we go about our communities, taking in all the festive cheer available, often very inexpensively, watching community Christmas parades, attending church and community choirs with their concerts and carol sings, community theatres’ special seasonal productions, museums, as well as fun seasonal entertainment provided at local retirement and nursing homes, we often forget or take for granted all the tremendous volunteer hours that go into making all these wonderful offerings happen. Without all those dedicated volunteers who give so tirelessly to keep affordable, local programming and facilities available to us, our worlds would be a lot less interesting. My family have become quite involved with the Studio Theatre in Perth, a non-profit, totally volunteer driven organization and so, I too, have stepped up and helped out. In doing so, I have become much more aware of the many little and not so little things that go on behind the scenes, necessary in putting each and every production on or in keeping the theatre looking inviting, welcoming and accessible. They require seven volunteers including ticket sellers, snack bar, ushers, house manager for every show, not counting technical and support staff or actors. There’s also the carpenter volunteers who build sets, others who gather props and costumes. I see dedicated board members

ternoon and then went home for supper. I still clearly remember how much my little brother enjoyed playing with the little, plastic six-shooter I gave him on that long ago Christmas. Years later my little boy was over the moon about the â&#x20AC;&#x153;lightsaberâ&#x20AC;? (from Star Wars) he found under the tree. No matter what your children or grandchildren receive this Christmas I hope they have as much fun with their gifts as we did during those long ago days in what was, â&#x20AC;&#x153;six shootersâ&#x20AC;? aside, the kinder and gentler era of the 1950s and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;60s. I feel very blessed to have such wonderful holiday memories. I wish the same for you and yours. From the Maguire family, Merry Christmas to all of you!

To date, 4,000 ShelterBoxes have been designated for disaster relief in the Philippines. What is a ShelterBox? A typical ShelterBox contains: a family tent; blankets; water purification; cooking utensils; a stove; tool kit; childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s activity pack and other vital items. All of these items are contained in a hard and durable plastic bin which can be repurposed as needed by the recipients. Find out more at www.carletonplacerotary.ca.

favourite, 30 years after it was first released. The movie, which is set in the 1940s, was filmed partly in Canada, in Toronto and St. Catharines. It is true that children in the 1950s and 1960s were very much in to toy guns and we were no exception. But you have to remember this was the era of the western on both the big and small screen. TV shows like Gunsmoke, Bonanza, Have Gun Will Travel, Rawhide and the Lone Ranger were extremely popular. Today it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t politically correct to let your child â&#x20AC;&#x153;shoot it outâ&#x20AC;? with the neighbourhood kids with plastic â&#x20AC;&#x153;weapons.â&#x20AC;? That despite the fact the old shows I refer to featured nary a drop of blood. Compare those programs to the violent content of movies and television today and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see what I mean!

Limited choice

Stittsville Main Street, as it is now called, has changed dramatically. When I was a youngster there were very few businesses along the artery. A bank, three gas/service stations, Bradleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s General Store, Switzerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hardware and Bellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s store which was actually a convenience store behind gas pumps. At Christmas there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a lot of choice for local shoppers. When I was old enough my first seasonal shopping sortie was at Switzerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. The family business was largely hardware related. But they carried some gift lines to satisfy the small market in the growing village. It was a different era. For one thing children could be turned out of the house and left unsupervised most of the day with no fear they would not return for lunch or dinner. Stittsville was a safe place where everybody knew each other and we all looked out for one another. I was probably only eight or nine at the time. But on a Saturday morning in December I announced to my mother that it was time to clean out the piggy bank and head up Main Street on my first solo Christmas shopping expedition. I even asked to take my little brother Randy. He is three and a half years younger. She had no problem with the idea. So, bundled in our winter clothing we set off through the snow. In reality the hardware store was only a few blocks from our house but at that age it seemed like a major journey. So many years later that expedition is a magical memory for me. Wandering through the store we picked out a small gift for our mother, something for the kitchen although I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember what? Not terribly personal but hey, we were little kids! There was a small toy section and I spotted a little toy gun I thought would be perfect for Randy. While he was distracted, checking out something else, I went to the counter and â&#x20AC;&#x153;clandestinelyâ&#x20AC;? paid for it. Obviously I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want him to see it before Christmas morning. Mum had advised me not to take too long. After a short time, armed with our purchases we trudged home. I was so excited about the idea of giving my brother a gift that as we were walking along I inadvertently told him I had a present for him. Unfortunately I went one step farther! â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got something really special for you,â&#x20AC;? I told my brother. A few seconds later I added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yup â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I think youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really going to like the gun-nnnnâ&#x20AC;Ś..No, not GUN, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not what I meant. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just something you will really like.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whew â&#x20AC;&#x201C; almost spilled the beans,â&#x20AC;? I thought to myself. Spilled the beans! I had just emptied the whole can for goodness sakes. Unbelievable! But when I looked at Randy he was skipping along and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even think he

â&#x153;&#x201E;

Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Just a week left until the big day and like many men I had to scramble to get my Christmas gift buying done. I only have one person to buy for, my wife Kathleen. She does the rest. And yet I still have to motivate myself. I am never among the Christmas Eve brigade of male shoppers, however! I refuse to join the last second buyers who brave the line-ups at the cash registers in order to buy the leftovers or lay out a lot of cash for something they would never normally buy. Last minute shopping can be very expensive! I know the commercial side of Christmas spoils the true meaning of the day and I am among the writers who have lamented that fact in the past. Still, the reality is that gift buying is extremely important to the economy and that is a positive up side to this busy season. For a writer Christmas provides a good opportunity to reminisce and rather than look at the down side I would much rather serve up some memories I am sure many of you will relate to. First though it is time for me to do a little penance. In a column a few years ago I jabbed those who have exchanged the tradition of a real Christmas tree for the easier to manage artificial variety. Among those who felt the sting of that â&#x20AC;&#x153;criticismâ&#x20AC;? was my sister Linda in Stittsville. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s used a â&#x20AC;&#x153;fake treeâ&#x20AC;? for many years and is vocal in her defence of the practice. Admittedly, from a distance you would never know their tree is artificial. Linda recalls me writing that I â&#x20AC;&#x153;would never allow such a tree in our house.â&#x20AC;? With my propensity for being outspoken, she is no doubt correct. Well, this year I succumbed to Kathyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pleadings and a phoney evergreen now stands in our downstairs family room. My wife grew tired of the annual â&#x20AC;&#x153;fightâ&#x20AC;? to get a real tree up and looking straight. She detested the mess left behind when the much drier version went out to the curb in January. Hearing the news my sister is expecting to see the truth come out in my column. So there, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve admitted it. The good news is that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty realistic and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look half bad. I did insist on something that looks real! Still, I miss the look and the smell of a real Scotch pine. And to all the tree growers out there, a humble apology! I began this missive by referring to Christmas gift buying. I grew up in Stittsville, long before it became part of the urban sprawl of greater Ottawa. When I was a kid, living in my parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first house, a tidy white bungalow on Elm Street, Stittsville was just beginning to emerge as a commuter haven. The former railway village had only a few hundreds residents.

Randy Urslak (middle), with Chief Administrative Officer Brian Carré (left) and Fire Chief Sixteen awards were presented at the banquet, held at the North Grenville Municipal CenPaul Hutt (right), named North Grenville Fire Services’ Firefighter of the Year for 2013. tre Saturday, Nov. 30, including service awards, department awards and crew awards.

Firefighters honoured at annual appreciation dinner of a great thing. There’s nothing else I’d rather be doing.” North Grenville Fire Service is very fortunate to have a large call volume that allows their crew to practice what they train for, said Urslak. In recent years, Urslak has become more involved in the fleet side of the station, but said getting out on the truck is where he most likes to be. “It’s a great feeling to go on these calls and help people get their lives somewhat back to normal.” Naming only one firefighter of the year is a difficult job considering the quality of the volunteers working in North Grenville, said Fire Chief Paul Hutt.

Veteran captain and local business owner named firefighter of the year By LAURA ARMSTRONG larmstrong@perfprint.ca

News – North Grenville Fire Services Captain Randy Urslak was honoured to be named firefighter of the year at the service’s annual appreciation dinner last month, but would have cheered just as loud for any of his fellow volunteers. “I don’t do it for the glory, I don’t do it for the parades. I do it to get my hands dirty and help people,” said Urslak, who

attended the Saturday, Nov. 30 banquet with his wife. Urslak began volunteering with the local fire service 14 years ago. The owner of Randy’s Performance Automotive, a business he started two decades ago, Urslak said he is always looking to strike a balance between the shop, family, and firefighters. Recently, though, Urslak said he is spending more time in his “happy place,” the fire station. “I seem to be there a lot. I love the job; I love being part

The winner, he said, had to be somebody with good attendance who not only shows up at calls but leads by example, taking an active role within the fire station as well as in the community. Crew 3 captain Urslak stood out, said Hutt. “He’s always involved. He goes above and beyond the call of duty,” said Hutt. Large crowd attends The event, which recognizes the station’s 40 volunteer firefighters for their work in the community, was held at the North Grenville Municipal Centre. About 100 firefighters, family members and special guests were in attendance for the cel-

ebration. Firefighters Brad Jackson, Sarah Ramsden and Jared Lamer were honoured for five years of service, while Bill Hutchins, Adrian Price, Captain Trevor O’Grady and Lieutenant Dave Marcil were credited with 15 years served. Departmental crew awards, presented to one member of each of the house’s four crews for going beyond the call of duty, went to Peter Kirby, Mike Finley, Sean Teed and Brad Jackson. Lieutenant Mark McFalls was given the Training Officer award, Kerry Harris received the Driver Training award and Fire Prevention Officer Elizabeth Greenberg was presented with

the Fire Prevention award. Hutt himself earned the Fire Service Exemplary Service medal, in recognition of 20 years of loyal and exemplary service to public security in Canada. Hutt, said Urslak, is an amazing manager and chief. Under his leadership, Urslak said he has watched the fire station evolve rapidly. “Since he started, everything has shifted. Morale is good, we’re moving in a positive direction. It’s a happy place to be. It all comes down to a very well run, smooth and friendly fire service. It’s an honour of mine to be part of such a great, cool thing.”

• Senior Planner Phil Gerrard led a public meeting to consider an application from Forbes Building Material Limited who is proposing to build a subdivision on Part Lot 16, Concession 5 in Oxford Mills. The meeting served as the required public meeting under the Environmental Assessment Act, and was hosted by the municipal council for the United County of Leeds and Grenville. The proposed subdivision, consisting of 14 single detached dwellings on septic systems, would be built at the corner of Guy Road and Maplewood Avenue and would be accessible via Tilley Lane. According to the applicant, development will not begin for at least eight months and it is unknown if there will be one builder or several, for custom design. No resolutions were made; the public meeting was for information only. • A site plan was approved for a property located at 2840 Taylor Road after the land was re-zoned in late October in order to permit a dog agility facility on the lands. Development could not proceed until a site plan agreement was executed with municipality. • The committee authorized the 2014 Interim Borrowing By-Law, which approves short term borrowing of $3.5 million for general purposes in advance of collection of tax revenue and budgeted revenues and provides overdraft protection for all municipal accounts. The limit is unchanged from past years and no short term borrowing was required in 2013. • North Grenville Fire Service chief Paul Hutt approved the North Grenville Fire Service Master Plan. Prepared by Chris Powers Consulting, the report is intended to be a blue print for fire services’ short term and long term goals. The plan outlines 20 recommendations made by fire services personnel about areas such as volunteers, training, and radio communications. By approving the report, the council also approves that all budget implications regarding the implementation of the Fire Master Plan be considered as part of the annual budget deliberations. • The 23rd committee of the whole meeting is the final of its kind for 2013. Council will return in January 2014.

News – Frequent visitors to the Kemptville District Hospital website will be greeted by new faces after the hospital’s updated patientfocused website was launched Thursday. “The old website was really dated,” said Jenny Read, the hospital’s communication lead. “I mean, they have a short shelf life anyways, but we had pictures of staff that haven’t worked

here in years.” Read, a part-time hospital employee, said talk of designing a new website for the hospital began more than two years ago. The “huge” project got underway in March, with Read leading the charge. The website, said hospital CEO Colin Goodfellow, is one of the ways the KDH shares information with the communities it serves. “We are excited that we have a new and

Council carries noise bylaw after months of deliberation Despite some lingering opposition, controversial ruling allows use of motorized vehicles on rural properties By LAURA ARMSTRONG larmstrong@perfprint.ca

News — A new communitywide noise bylaw approved by council Monday stresses residents must attempt to resolve issues in a neighbourly fashion before conflicts escalate to the point of enforcement. “This bylaw has an expectation that noise-related conflicts will be resolved between neighbours,” said Forbes Symon, North Grenville’s director of planning and development, at the region’s Dec. 16 committee of the whole meeting. The committee tabled the revised bylaw, initially conceived about seven months ago, in early November to allow for

public consultation and review. Seventeen additional comments were submitted to the committee within the month, 10 of which expressed concern with permitting motocross tracks throughout the municipality. Opposition to motocross tracks stems from residents within earshot of Bolton Road in Kemptville, where a track was installed on a private, rural residence. Last summer, council was presented with a petition challenging the track, signed by 70 nearby residents. Dennis Brookson was one of two Bolton Road residents who spoke about homeowner’s lasting concerns over the bylaw, which he said fails to support those

bothered by the noise created from the motorized vehicles. “I think this bylaw does not protect the people of North Grenville against this activity and doesn’t protect property values. I don’t know how somebody is supposed to sell their house when you look out and there’s a five-acre field that’s been torn up into a motocross track,” said Brookson. According to other Bolton Road residents, the young man in question has only rode his dirt bike approximately a dozen times in the last eight to 10 months, said director of planning and development Symon. Still, he said, striking a balance between the interests that exist in the community is paramount,

which is why changes made to the early November document included a clause noting the importance of appreciating the rural area in which there is an opportunity for peaceful enjoyment of the natural environment. Professional motocross tracks are not permitted by the bylaw, Symon said, but individuals on their own property can ride motorized vehicles such as snowmobiles, all-terrain vehicles and dirt bikes, provided the vehicle has a proper working muffler and is being operated in rural or agricultural areas of the community. The issue of motocross, said

Symon, is primarily related to young people in the community. The Municipality of North Grenville, I believe, must recognize this activity as appropriate. Put limits on it, but also recognize that it’s something that takes place essentially within the rural areas and that it is something that takes place essentially within the rural area and that it is something that is part of our community. “ Moved by Councillor Barb Tobin and seconded by Mayor David Gordon, the revised bylaw was unanimously carried despite some remaining concern from the public. Senior

management within the municipality will receive neighbourhood mediation training to aid should residents not be able to broker amicable agreements that regulate activities and times of day during which activities can take place on their own, Symon said. The bylaw can’t address everything, said Gordon, and, after months of discussion between the committee and the public, it’s time to move forward. “You have to give it a chance. If there are any quirks then we can go back and look at the quirks.”

“For each test that we do here, we have a picture of what it looks like when you’re having the test, we have how it’s performed, how you prepare, how it’s going to feel, thinking that’s what people need to know when they come here,” said Read. Read and a targeted hospital committee worked with web developer Jud Rasmussen at Ottawa’s One Marketing to create the website, which maintains the same URL address. Though they were able to repurpose some content from the old website, Read said most of the 120 pages of content she produced were written from scratch. “With me writing, I would then meet with the departments to make sure I had the correct information and see if there was anything to add. Everything got reviewed, and people in various departments contributed as well.” Additional features include an approximation of emergency room wait times as well as quick links to the hospital’s Twitter account and Facebook page. The website provides information through a variety of media, including maps and video. One of the biggest changes for Read was the transition to a Wordpress-based website. Unlike the previous host, which only let hospital employees make changes to the website through an outside company, Wordpress allows Read to make immediate changes. “The major focus now that we’ve launched it is keeping it fresh. There are still things that we want to do.” Read said the hospital will continue to work with One Marketing to get consumer feedback based on

the website’s analytics. “We’ll look at what pages people are coming to see more often, as well as the bounce rate. If we see that people go to a page and then they leave immediately, they didn’t find what they were looking for. We’ll be able to work with them to tweak it, and continue to make it more useful

for people.” The current website offers incoming day-surgery patients the chance to pre-register through a secure, encrypted site hosted by a Canadian web-hosting firm. Patients who pre-register can check in through at kiosk at the hospital’s main entrance the day of the surgery. Read said more and more

people are using the pre-registering avenue, an option she hopes will expand to more services in the future. “Obviously, though, protecting patient information is extremely important. The security of patient information is extremely important to any hospital.” Our website is one of the ways

we share information with the communities we serve. We are excited that we have a new and improved vehicle for communicating with patients as we continue with our work of building healthier communities. Visit the new Kemptville District Hospital website at: http:// www.kdh.on.ca.

South Nation Conservation board of directors earmarks funding for forest acquisition in 2014 News - Eastern Ontario’s forests help filter the air we breathe; protect the water we drink; provide habitat for abundant wildlife; and supply us with valuable wood products. Recent trends in extensive forest-cover loss aren’t going unnoticed by local residents who are calling attention to the issue in newspapers. If left unchecked, this downturn in forest cover will directly impact the natural benefits that the watershed depends on.



“Our forests are being cut with an intensity that is permanently changing the countryside,” says SNC Chair, Bill Smirle. “If we don’t take urgent action to save what’s left, the opportunity will be lost.” With this in mind, the South Nation Conservation Board of Directors has set aside funds in the 2014 Budget to preserve local forests.

Small business provides jobs, tax revenues and makes many other contributions to our region.

Acquiring priority forest tracts is one more tool SNC uses to create a legacy of healthy forests. Each year, SNC plants 100,000 trees and visits over 50 woodlot owners to provide management advice.

“I am pleased to announce that SNC will be launching a legacy trust program in 2014,” says Smirle. “This will make it easier for ecological lands to be permanently protected.”

MY NISSAN



 

11,000 acres of mostly forest cover. These properties provide nearby and natural areas for people and wildlife, including opportunities to hunt, hike, and picnic.In most cases, SNC is able to double funds for forest acquisition through their partners in conservation, such as the Ontario Land Trust. SNC currently receives about 200 acres every year through land donations from families who want their forests protected beyond their lifetime.

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Expansion plans are underway for a new food science diploma offered on the University of Guelphâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kemptville campus after the program saw a successful first semester. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have six students right now. We should be able to handle 24 students next year, so we do expect substantial growth,â&#x20AC;? said program coordinator Dr. Rachel McEgan. The associate diploma in food science and quality management launched in September, replacing the Kemptville campusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; food nutrition and risk management program. Rather than preparing students to go into institutional kitchens such as hospitals and long-term care facilities like before, the new diploma concentrates on the science behind food. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much more focused on chemistry, food processing and all the math behind that,â&#x20AC;? McEgan said. The food science industry is consistently stable because everybody eats, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s becoming more technical than it was in the past, said McEgan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;More industry needs someone with at least a little bit of skill, enough science background, enough business management decision-making skills to work independently,â&#x20AC;? she said. The program on Guelphâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kemptville campus was developed for about two years before it became available to students this fall. The university worked with an advisory group, including industry professionals, tailoring classes and laboratories to ensure students build a strong skill set that is ready for practical application come graduation. In the classroom the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two full-time and three part-time professors try to offer active learning to their six class members, McEgan said. Students also spend five hours a week in the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s laboratoryâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a hybrid between a kitchen and a chemistry lab â&#x20AC;&#x201D;conducting food-related experiments such as identifying the properties of starches and investigating the microbiology of milk. While the program is not the only diploma of its kind in the country â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the British Columbia Institute of Technology offers a food science diploma and Niagara College has a similar culinary science program â&#x20AC;&#x201D; McEgan said it is still somewhat of a specialty in Canada. Guelphâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s program stands out because students will not only learn applied food sciences, but will get enough background in all the basic sciences to start a very strong career in the food industry, she said. Another facet of the program is a mandatory four-week internship at the end of the first year, which gives

students the opportunity to apply the skills they learned in class as well as the opportunity to start networking with people in the industry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We already have a lot of industry indicating that they would be interested in having one of our students intern with them,â&#x20AC;? said McEgan. Industry response to the program overall is very positive, McEgan said. There are no statistics based on graduates as of yet, but McEgan expects graduate employment to be high because the industry has driven the development of the program. Although demand for the program is increasing, McEgan said the program will be capped at 24 students to maintain a small instructor to student ratio. Students, she said, appreciate the personal attention they are able to receive from professors because of small class sizes.

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the way it should be.â&#x20AC;? McEgan, who holds a PhD in product safety from the University of Florida, is preparing to teach her first two classes next semester, applied food chemistry and applied food microbiology. Having moved to Kemptville from Florida in August, McEgan said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s faced a bit of an adjustment, especially to the winter weather, but is proud of the direction in which the program is heading. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a very busy semester, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve come a long way in terms of getting the program up and running.â&#x20AC;?

GARDENERâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S CORNER

The Antidote has Arrived The antidote for the malaise of short days has arrived and just in time for me to give you a small present. The spring ordering catalogues landed on my desk a few days ago. They are thick and slick, glossy, full colour and display a wealth of information. The ďŹ rst section is always devoted to new varieties for next year. Space here doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allow the photos but I have checked out every plant I mention on Google Images. They all come up on the ďŹ rst page.

New food science program flourishing on University of Guelphâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kemptville campus


OPINION

Connected to your community

Who is my brother’s keeper? Editorial – Industry Minister James Moore may not look like Ebenezer Scrooge, but he certainly sounded like it. During an interview with a radio reporter, he said British Columbia’s child poverty rates were not the responsibility of the federal government. Technically speaking, yes, this is true. He did not want to “usurp,” the province – not surprising considering he is a Conservative and so is very wary of intruding on areas of provincial jurisdiction. This is a government, after all, that won’t even sign on for a national plan on dementia, lest it step on the toes of the provinces. It was the next line that caused a stir: “Is it the federal government’s job – my job to feed my neighbour’s child? I don’t think so,” he said. Now, you can point to any number of quotes that pull on the heart strings, or put the fear of God into you, about looking after the vulnerable in our society, whether it is Genesis 4:9, or the African proverb that it takes a village to raise a child or John Donne’s words that “No man is an island,” But let us put aside this purple prose, and check out the green and gold – the cold, hard cash. In a presentation to Perth town council recently, Jennifer Miller, executive director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lanark County, referred to a study done by Boston Consulting Group, which found that, for every dollar invested in children, there was as much as an $18 return on that investment when the child reaches adulthood. So, in a weird sort of way, it is our duty to make sure that our children are fed. Just whose duty may be up for debate. In the wake of a series of shootings in Toronto, Rob Ford

L

repeated the Tory line that the best poverty fighting tool was a job. There are many parents who fail on the job and send their kids to school hungry. Yes, it is a little galling that we have to pick up after someone else’s negligence. But at the end of the day, that kid is still hungry. Now, while the federal government has either failed, or, more charitably, is 13 years behind, on its 1989 goal of eliminating child poverty by the year 2000, progress is being made. Fewer families led by single mothers are using welfare now. The Harper government claims that, since taking office in 2006, there are 225,000 fewer children in poverty, and the Tories have brought in the Universal Child Care Benefit. But there were still more than 800,000 Canadians who had to use food banks this year. This should simply not be happening in a land of plenty like Canada. Moore later apologized, saying that his remarks were “insensitive…that I deeply regret…I know the cause of fighting poverty is not helped by comments like those I made last week. For that, I am sorry.” So which is Moore’s true belief? What he told the radio reporter, or what the Prime Minister’s office drafted for him to say? One gets the impression from his initial comments, that he would rather wash his hands of the poor. It’s all about the middle class, after all. Today, we are six days away from Christmas, celebrating the birthday of an infant born in humble surroundings. Now, 2,013 years later, we try to make things a little better for those less fortunate, by doing to the least of our brothers that which we would want done for us.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…or is it?

ifestyle - As we round the corner and careen downhill toward Christmas, it’s important to remember that while we are caught up in the joy and celebration of the holiday season, it isn’t the most wonderful time of the year for some people. In fact it might be dreaded as the worst. Last Christmas I did my shopping, my planning and my preparing as usual, but when the big day rolled around I just couldn’t drag myself out of bed. I had been violently ill with a stomach bug for a full day by Christmas Eve, and I had neither the strength nor the intention of going to a family dinner and infecting everyone else. As my family dressed and packed up food and gifts in large boxes to fill the car for the trip to the city, I managed to make the big trip from the bedroom to the living room couch. I sat there in my nest of tissue paper, facial tissues and blankets and watched as they wished me well, and…left. Abandoned in my misery, I had plenty of time to think. Christmas is supposed to be a time for family and

friends, great traditions and rituals of celebration. But it doesn’t always go as planned. My Christmas was pretty much cancelled last year. Yes, I received and gave gifts. But it just goes to show you how little the gifts matter, in the end. It’s the fellowship with friends and family that count. In our community this year, and possibly in your circle of friends or family, there are people who will not be enjoying the holiday season. In fact they might just cancel Christmas for a year, because they don’t feel like celebrating. And that’s ok. It will be back next year. I have friends who have lost family members in recent weeks. Christmas will be especially difficult for them

this year, as it comes wrapped in the memories of years gone by with their loved ones. Another friend has been revisited by his old pal, depression. He can’t seem to shake it and although he will go through the motions of family dinners and traditional Christmas celebrations, his heart just won’t be in it. We have this picture-perfect idea of what the season is supposed to be – but it doesn’t always work out that way. Some people will force themselves to take part in everything as usual, hoping that the rituals and routine will help in dealing with the pain of loss and suffering. Others will give themselves permission to be excused from the whole event. They will head to the airport and spend their holidays on a sunny beach, or just bundle up at home and pretend Christmas isn’t happening where they live. And that’s ok too – I did it last year against my will, but it was a great opportunity to be quiet, refocus, think and be grateful.

Look around you this week and consider who might not be in the celebratory mood this year. Find something you can do to show them the Christmas spirit, to remind them that it isn’t all about the gifts, feasts and parties, but rather Christmas is about showing each other you care. A single mom or dad might appreciate you offering to take the kids to the local toboggan hill. That elderly gentleman might appreciate a quick shoveling of his pathway and front steps. Your neighbour who is recovering from chemo needs someone to pick up

EXPLANATORY NOTE

The Zoning By-law Amendment affects an area of approximately 5,200 m2 (1.3 acres) located at the northeast corner of Read Street and Lewis Street West. The area includes the unopened Drummond Street road allowance between Read Street and St. Patrick Street. The Zoning By-law Amendment re-zones the area from the “Development” (D) Zone to the “Residential Type 2-Exception” (R2-1) and “Residential Type 3-Exception” (R3-1) Zones.

The subject area is currently vacant, but is designated for residential development in the Official Plan. The Zoning By-law Amendment: 1. re-zones the Lewis Street West road frontage to the “Residential Type 2-Exception” (R2-1) Zone to permit a total of 14 street townhouse dwellings; and, 2. re-zones the balance of the area, including the unopened Drummond Street road allowance, to the “Residential Type 3-Exception” (R3-1) Zone to permit a 3-storey, 43 unit apartment building.

Christmas time is different for everyone By CHYANNE

Community – One frosty night on Christmas Eve a small egg was starting to hatch on the solid cold ice. The baby penguin popped its little eyes open. She looked up at her mother. She tried to waddle to her old egg but she missed her egg so much. 10 years later she was a beautiful grown up penguin and it was almost Christmas. Her mother told her it was 6 more days until Christmas. It would be her first Christmas. When she was little she had the worst Christmas of her entire life because her mother and father gave her a dog book. She does not like dog books. She thought about the Christmas she was going to have. The next day she slept in bed. Her mother told her to get out of bed. She looked at her clock. She was going to be late for school. When she got to school there were lots of decorations. There were Santa decorations and snowman decorations too. She looked one more time. There was a book about dogs. She was shocked because when she was little she had a dog book too. When she got home her mother told her that we were getting a tree to decorate for Christmas. Then the penguins saw a tree in the middle of the ice. So they grabbed the tree. It was perfect. I got the decorations from upstairs and I didn't forget the star for the top of the tree. I hope I get an iPod for Christmas. Today it was my birthday I am having a sleep over for my birthday. After my birthday we got ready for Christmas. I am so happy it is almost Christmas. Today we had the best hot chocolate with marshmallows and we went fishing .When we were there I was the only one that caught a fish with my mother. It was a sunfish. When we came back from fishing we went to bed so Santa could come. But that night when she was sleeping she heard a big (THOMP). She woke up. She was at Santa's workshop. There were elves and presents all over the place. And she thought they were making toys. I love toys. (BUT NOT BOOKS)! There was a dog book on the table. I did not even want to look at the book. She waddled around Santa's work shop. When she waddled she bumped into Santa. Santa asked me why I was here? "Because when I was sleeping I heard a (THOMP,) that's why I came here Santa." Then Santa introduced me to the elves and Santa's wife. It was the best Christmas ever!

The Bullied Elf Santa Claus comes through for Kalise By ELLA

told her to ignore them. So she decided to run away. Day after day, night after night she kept on walking...Until she reached Santa's workshop. She went to go see Santa and tell him about the bullying. When she told Santa about the bullying he said he would go to school with her the next day and stop the bullying. So the next day Santa came to school with her. Santa talked to the girls and boys who bullied Kalise and they promised never to bully any one again.

Community – Once upon a time there was an elf named Kalise. Kalise was lonely. She was lonely because nobody liked her. She was bullied because she was new and had a different name. Every day she would go to her school and

try to make friends but whenever she walked up to someone they would run away before she could even say "hi". She told her parents every night. Eventually her parents told her teacher Mrs. Clementine. Mrs. Clementine was a Christmas Clementine. The next day Mrs. Clementine tried to stop the bullying but it just got worse. It was even about her clothes. This time she walked away but she felt like she was doing something wrong so she went inside to talk to Mrs. Clementine. Mrs. Clementine told her to stay inside with her. That night she told her mom and dad what had happened that day. Her mom and dad just

Little Jimmy the Elf Community – "Hey pass over here" cried little Jimmy when he was playing elfskitball. "A, man," Jimmy sighed. "What's the matter, pip squeak" yelled Bryan. "I'm the strongest elf of them all!" "Don't bully him," shouted Christopher. "I'm the coolest elf of them all." "Guys please don't fight." But no one listened to him. Jimmy started to think he was too small to be an elf... So the next day Jimmy packed his stuff and tiptoed to the front door and opened it quietly and

"whoa!" Jimmy slipped on black ice "PUH, PUH, PUH" Jimmy muttered with a mouth full of snow. When he wiped his eyes he was13 inches in the frozen snow. "Help" shouted Jimmy but no one heard him. "Help" still nothing. Nibble, Nibble, Nibble. Jimmy ate some Coffee Crisp and Aero chocolate bars. "Ho, Ho, Ho." "Santa wa... { ' "Whoa" Boom!!!!!! Santa fell into the hole. "Get off me," Jimmy wailed. When Santa stood up Jimmy was stuck. "Jimmy what are doing?" Santa

asked. ' "I quit," answered Jimmy. "Ooohhh well bye" Santa sighed sadly. Beep, beep. "That's my ride," Jimmy explained. "WAIT" yelled Jenny. Jimmy liked Jenny a lot. "You forgot this" and she handed him a picture of him when he was a teenager and then Jenny gave him a BIG kiss on the cheek. Jimmy blushed. "Thanks," smiled Jimmy. Then Jimmy got into the taxi and showsh, Jimmy was gone. All the elves started to cry – even Jenny! "Why did he have to go?" sighed Steve. "YA," cried Craig, Santa's best

elf. "NYC here I come;,' yelled Jimmy! "Here we are I'll miss you." "WOW," Jimmy gasped, "so beautiful like Jenny!" "Hey, you lost big guy?" asked Will. "Who are you?" Jimmy asked puzzled. "I'm Will and this is my best friend Ben!" "Sup" Ben said; "You want to come over?" Ben asked. "Sure," replied Jimmy, so they went to the B&W condo and partied.

Christmas tale

Sarah the Christmas Elf delivers the presents and saves Christmas By RAYA

Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Once there was a Snow Fairy named Sarah. She had beautiful long white hair. She longed to be a Christmas fairy, not a Snow fairy, not a Candy Cane fairy, but a Christmas fairy. A Snow fairy makes it snow. A Candy Cane fairy makes all the candy for the stockings. Christmas fairies are the masters of all the other fairies. The Christmas fairies help everyone have a Christmas spirit and bring joy to Christmas. Christmas fairies also bring news to Santa and tell him who's naughty or nice. Sarah lived where all fairies live. They live on the cloud above Santa's workshop, where everything is made out of candy. One day, Sarah was walking through the gumdrop trees and swinging around the trunks. All of a sudden, Sarah heard a chocolate branch break. She twisted her head to look behind her, but no one was there. She turned her head back again and the moment she did she saw.... Charlotte! "Aaaa", Sarah jumped. "You scared me! You know I hate it when you do that" said Sarah. "I know" said Charlotte. She was a more nasty and rude fairy. After all, she was a Christmas fairy. In fact, she was Santa's favourite messenger. But Sarah didn't mind because Santa was lazy. He barely wanted to deliver the presents. Charlotte ZOOOOomed away laughing like a wicked witch. That night Sarah looked up into the starry sky, "It's a full moon,â&#x20AC;? she thought. The next day Sarah was very busy flying around the world making it snow, so everyone would have a white Christmas because it was Christmas eve. December was the busiest time of the year for all fairies. By lunch Sarah was starving since she didn't have any breakfast. Sarah took off to the North. When she got to Santa's workshop, she knocked on the door, but no one answered and she was too small to open the door.

She flew around the cabin and found an open window so she squeezed inside. Just as Sarah got through the window Sarah could tell Santa and Charlotte were talking about something she wasn't supposed to know. Sarah found a hole in the wall just big enough for her to fit into. She poked her head in, then the rest of her body. Sarah found another crack in the wall closer to Santa and Charlotte. Sarah climbed through the hole but sped behind a bookshelf nearby.

SAFETY TIPS

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

Sarah had a quick glance at Santa and Charlotte. These are the words she heard; "We have to stop blank" "have blank got blank, blank snowman?" But she could not hear everything. She flew out the window sneakily. Sarah rose higher and higher until she was face to face with the sun. Sarah asked the sun what Santa meant, but all it did was give four words.... Christmas, you, the and abominable.

Sarah thought for a moment then realized, those words were the four missing in the sentence Santa had said. "We have to stop Christmas." "Have you got the abominable snowman?" Sarah didn't know how much time she was taking up, but then she heard "10, 9, 8, 7..." The time she thought "Christmas" then she saw the giant abominable snowman! He had all the gifts and presents in his arms. Sarah set up a giant rock.

The abominable snowman tripped over the rock and all the presents went flying. Sarah scooped all the gifts into a bag "Wissshhh" then she shot into the sky and delivered all the presents in one night, that night, her very self. The next day Sarah turned into a Christmas fairy, the leader of all the fairies. Then Santa crumbled up into ashes and Sarah got not only what she wanted, but what she was meant to be.

Kemptville Storm peewee B wins championship gold! Sports –The Kemptville Storm peewee B girls proved to everyone, including themselves - that they are a team to be reckoned with this year. On the weekend of Nov. 15-17, the Peewee B Storm attended the Kanata (KGHA) 31st Annual Competitive Tournament - going undefeated (4-0-1), scoring 13 goals for and only allowing 2 goals against in 5 games! The Peewee B'ers finished the round robin with 1-0 win, 0-0 tie and a 7-0 win over the Belleville Bearcats, Ottawa Ice and Toronto Leaside Wildcats. They faced the Nepean Wildcats in the semifinals - defeating them 3-1 in what was their most complete game of the tournament. The finals delivered the tight, high pressure game as expected, as they faced off again against the team they had tied in the round robin - the Ottawa Ice. High intense, nail-biting action right up until the final 5 second count down - with our Storm pulling off a 2-1 victory - and winning tournament gold. The girls certainly found their stride and haven't slowed down going 2-0-1 with 2 shutouts in regular season play since the tournament. Awesome work Storm!!

A Christmas Story By ADAM

I know I am on the good list because I have been a good boy! I hope I am never on the naughty list because I wouldn't get any presents. It's Christmas Eve and I am really trying to go to sleep, but I can't. I am feeling happy so

I start to hum "Santa Claus is Coming to Town". I am going over my wish list in my head and I really want "big boy" toys and a watch so I can learn to tell time. I start, to think about the toys in Santa's sack. Santa must be really strong because the sack is always full and it looks heavy.

If I could tell time, I would know that a couple of hours have already passed, I yawn and my eyes are heavy. I pull my covers over my head Before I know it. ..... IT'S CHRISTMAS MORNING!

R0012465875/1219

Once upon a time there was a little tree that grew in a Christmas tree cutting farm. He was very sad because he noticed that he wasn't growing as tall and full as the other trees and soon it was going to be Christmas. When the farm opened for business he stood as tall as he could, and hoped that a family would pick him to take home. But it didn't happen because only the big tall trees that were beside him got picked. Soon he found that he was standing alone with no other trees around him. It was Christmas Eve and he was so sad. He knew that he had the perfect top for a star or an angel and couldn't understand why he was still at the tree farm. Just when he thought that it was too late to be picked for Christmas, a boy and his family walked over to the little tree. The little tree was trying to be noticed so he stood up as tall as he could. The little boy's Father said that the little tree was as tall as his son and wanted to know if this was the tree to take home. The little boy agreed.

73’s come close – end up with split Sports - On Friday, December 13, the Cornwall Colts dropped into the North Grenville Municipal Centre to do battle with the Kemptville 73's. The battle started out as little more than a skirmish. The Colts scored twice in the first period to hold a 2-0 lead after one. They scored again early before the 73's got on track. Dean Galasso notched his 16th of the year, assisted by David Higgs. The Colts came roaring back and scored two more. Leading 5-1 in the closing minutes of the second period, Kemptville took advantage of a power play opportunity to get their second of the game. The goal was scored by Cody Hendsbee. It was a beautiful set up by Erik Brown and Quinn Carroll. Trailing 5-2, Kemptville was determined to make a game of it. Hendsbee scored on the power play again. This time Matt Tugnutt and Carroll earned the assists. With a contentious call, Cornwall got a chance on the power play and made it happen, scoring to make it a 6-3 game. The 73's weren't done yet. Galasso and Hendsbee set up Jesse Blais for his 17th of season. In the dwindling minutes of the third, Kemptville pulled their goalie in favour of the extra attacker. With the players swarming the Colts net, Hendsbee managed to poke in the loose puck on a

Kemptville’s Jonathon Masters (5) watches Brockville’s Jonathan Power (12) in front of Matt Couvrette (1) poorly handled rebound. When the buzzer went, Cornwall had a 6-5 victory. The 73's dug an early hole and almost got out of it. Kemptville goalies combine to face 45 Colts shots. Cornwall scored three times with the man advantage and Kemptville had two. Cody Hendsbee was named the game's first star in the losing effort, picking up three goals and an assist. The second game of the weekend had the Brockville Braves come to Kemptville on Sunday, Dec. 15 to take on the 73's. The game was scheduled to start at 2:00 but got under way a little late. The opening ceremony featured members of the KDMHA Atom Panthers Rep team. The kids captured the Regional Silver Stick Championship early in November and were honored by

the 73's. The final day of the tournament, they won all three games they played, only allowing one goal. They have now qualified for the International Silver Stick Championship being played in Forest, Ontario in the near future. They were present on the ice for the national anthem and proudly displayed their banner which will be mounted on the North Grenville Wall of Fame. It was suggested that this game was going to be a barn burner and it lived up to expectations. It featured lots of speed, hard hitting and a high level of intensity. Kemptville opened the scoring five minutes after the opening face off. Jesse Blais and Cody Hendsbee set Erik Brown for his power play goal to make it 1-0. Eight minutes later the Braves got the equalizer. Blais put the 73's ahead with his eighteenth of the year. The only assist went to Brown. In the second, the same tempo continued. Brockville scored twice, to take a 3-2 lead. Before the period was over Olivier Chabot tied the game with the helpers going to Dylan Giberson and Alex Row. Momentum shifted a little in the third with Brockville running into discipline problems. Kemptville scored twice on back to back power plays. First, Brown and Hendsbee set up Galasso for his seventeenth of the season. Then Brown got his second of the game and

thirteenth of the campaign from Hendsbee and Galasso. The Braves made it interesting when they scored to make it a 5-4 game but Chabot scored his second of the game, giving him six for the year. Matt Martin and Quinn Carroll picked up the assists. There is one game left this year before the Christmas break. That game will feature the Cumberland Grads on Friday, December 20 with the opening face off at 7:30. Come and see the stars of tomorrow right here in your community. See you at the rink!

The Habitat for Humanity Thousand Islands completed its first build in North Grenville. A dedication ceremony was held at Leslie Hall on Dec. 14. Left to right are Pamela Little, the chair for the board of directors for Habitat for Humanity Thousand Islands, Leeds and Grenville MP Gord Brown, North Grenville Mayor David Gordon and the Horning family.

Family moves into new home HABITAT From front page

The idea of having Habitat for Humanity come to Kemptville began as just an idea by members of the St. James Anglican Church two years ago. “At a planning session in March of 2012 the HFHTI Board of Directors decided that Kemptville should be the site of its build for 2013,” said Martin vanAndel the chair of the public relations committee. At this point, work was already under way on a three townhouse project in Prescott. Late in 2012 the HFHTI’s former executive director met with community representatives in Kemptville. The result of the meeting was the formation of a steering committee that began looking for a building lot for the project. The organization‘s tradition is to find land that can be donated to them in an effort to manage their costs. The chair of the steering committee was Kemptvile’s Robert Noseworthy, the president and CEO of Westerra Homes. While committee members were beginning to organize themselves, a family selection team was put together. Cheryl Pickins the chair of the HFHTI Family Services put the selection team together. Applications were distributed. Applicants had to be interviewed and a host of other requirements, including an applicant’s willingness to give 500 hours of sweat equity to the build and the ability to pay a mortgage, were looked at. Habitat families buy their homes at a fair market value and HFHTI carries the mortgage at zero per cent interest. Early in 2013 the steering committee found a lot. St James Anglican Church, as part of selling a parcel of land, made the donation of a lot to HFHTI a condition of the sale. David Simpson, the eventual purchaser of the land, then transferred one lot to Habitat. Meanwhile Christina was settling in to her new life in Kemptville. Christina began going to St.

James Anglican Church. “I met a lot of wonderful people. People who made me feel welcome, supported and loved,’ she said. She heard of the Habitat for Humanity build and decided to put in an application. ”I knew there were so many like myself who are just as deserving. My aunt kept saying trust in the lord, which was something new for me. There were forms, interviews and waiting. I didn’t want to let myself hope as so many good things had already happened to me, and frankly it seemed impossible and a little greedy to think of having more. I had already received so many blessings.” Building the home took people and a tremendous amount of ‘sweat equity’. That means dedicated volunteers. The project had no shortage of willing hands to help build the home. Harmen Boersma is the chair of the team of volunteers who put the home together. “We began calling for volunteers at the Dandelion Festival in May. We signed up more than 30 people in just two days,” said Boersma. By the time the build was poised to begin, Boersma had enlisted 49 volunteers and had filled the 205 different spots on the build. Each spot represented a particular task. Robert Noseworthy wore different hats for the project. He is a member of he board of director for HFHTI as well as the chair of the build committee. “I want to say thank you to all the members of the build committee for their hard work and contributions in getting this home delivered on target for the delivery date and well below the budgeted cost,” he said. Speaking to Christina he said, “Today we are dedicating a new home to Christina Horning and her three children Rylynn, Raven and Ryker. Christina, today you are receiving a hand up not a hand out. You are the recipient of and are the steward of a great gift. We believe that you will use it

wisely,” he said. He ran down the list of people involved in making the project happen. From the 49 volunteers to the various committees, including a build committee of 12 people and a steering committee of another 12 people, the entire parish of St. James Anglican Church and a board of directed made up of ten people. “In addition, we used the services of approximately 32 trades,” said Noseworthy. Added to that number are around 30 more people from the municipality, county lawyers and people from the ReStore in Brockville. “As you know, as leaders of teams we are only as good as our team members and I want you to know that Corey Lockwood, Kevin Scott and Andrew Bryson were largely responsible for the success we had with this build. All three of these individuals are to be commended for their selfless acts of generosity of time, money and expertise on this project. This project could not have been completed on time and under budget without their commitment,” he said. He explained how Eric Norenberg was taken with the house but was concerned that the family would not have all the furniture they needed to be comfortable. “Children need to grow up in their formative years with good beds and mattresses,” he said. Consequently he donated from his KBC RONA store a living room and dining room set. A queen size bed with a frame and mattress, and two twin beds with frame and mattresses. The dedication ceremony was a busy time for everyone at Leslie Hall but when it was over Christina Horning was able to sum the ceremony up. “I now have a place to call my own and have a permanent place to raise my children and never have to worry about moving again, change school, uprooting my children and their lives. I have a real sense of stability, support, love and belonging,” she said.

I am going to find a big box and put a hole in the box and when it's time which is 6:00 o'clock pm my brother and I will hide in the big box. When my family wakes up and opens the box we will SURPRISE them with joy! Holidays are fun but time flies by when you are having fun. I have a Wish book. I said it is a catalogue. Mom said that it is not any catalogue. It is a WISH BOOK! Guess what I found? I found the whole Lego World. It is $. I fell right to the ground plus I don't have that kind of money but I want it from Santa. This year Grandma and Grandpa and my Aunt Kerry will be coming to my place for Christmas. I don't get to see them very much in the school year so when they come will have lots of fun playing out in the snow, having snowball fights and we will open presents together. Christmas is a time when we all sit down and talk together about planning other holidays and we talk about different movies that we have seen. Sometimes we go skiing at Mount Pakenham. Skiing is so much fun when you speed down the hill. Sometimes I cross my skis and end up falling on my face.

Community – One day a week before Christmas, Santa and his elves were rushing around the workshop. The Candy Canes were getting polished. The Gingerbread family were decorating their house, the Christmas lights were glowing their brightest while the decorations found their place on the trees. But the best thing on Christmas was training the little reindeer. Rudolph trained them every year. There was a very special reindeer. He was the tiniest little reindeer of them all. His name was Blizzard. He usually fell or broke things. A week ago when they where training, Blizzard was doing reindeer jumps with the other reindeer. When it was his turn he was too small to make it so when he jumped he got stuck. All the other reindeer laughed and laughed at him. This week he broke Rudolph’s Reindeer jump! Rudolph did not care, he could get another one. That night Blizzard could not sleep. He tossed and turned, bucked and jumped. He wanted to be normal. The next morning he work up to the sound of Santa waking him up. Santa never woke the reindeer. Santa said he needed help with something and that he was the one to do the job! He got up and walked to the workshop. When they got in the shop he saw all the elves standing around something. He could not see what it was. The 5th elf that was the accounting elf saw Santa and Blizzard, so he ran over quickly. He talked about the thing he was just look at. Blizzard followed the elf and Santa to the corner where the elves were crowding. They all backed away and Santa showed Blizzard what it was. It was a small portal that only one special reindeer could go through. Not even Santa could do it. Blizzard jumped in and appeared in a little girl’s bedroom. She was 8 years old but very small for her age. She had the same problem as him. She got bullied by kids in her class. Then Blizzard jumped in the portal and appeared back in the workshop. He told them all about it and the portal disappeared. The next day it was Christmas Eve and the reindeer were getting hitched on the sleigh. When the reindeer started to bully him he just ignored it. He never got bullied again after than and the other reindeer never bullied him again.

Join 114th Audubon Christmas Bird Count tradition in Carleton Place, Lanark Highlands Community – Birders and nature enthusiasts in the Carleton Place and Lanark Highlands areas will soon join citizen scientists throughout the Americas and participate in the Audubon Society’s longestrunning wintertime tradition, the annual Audubon Christmas Bird Count (CBC). The Carleton Place CBC will be held this year on Friday, Dec. 27. The Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists (MVFN) will once again sponsor this bird count. The count area is a 24-kilometre circle centered on the bridge over the Mississippi River in Carleton Place, and includes Almonte, Appleton and Ashton. The Lanark Highlands count, also sponsored by MVFN, will take place a few days later on Monday, Dec. 30. Details for both counts will be posted on the MVFN website (www.mvfn. ca). This year, more than 2,000 individual counts are scheduled to take place throughout the Americas and beyond between Dec. 14 and Jan. 5. “Each CBC volunteer observer is an important contributor, helping to shape the overall direction of bird conservation,” says Dick Cannings, Bird Studies Canada’s Christmas Bird Count co-ordinator. “Bird Studies Canada and our partners at the National Audubon Society in the United States rely on data from the CBC database to monitor bird populations.” Last year, during the 2012 Carleton Place Christmas Bird Count more than 50 volunteers spent the day observing birds resulting in the recording of nearly 5,000 birds and 56 different species. The first Audubon bird count in Carleton Place took place in 1944. The CBC tradition began more than a century ago when 27 conservationists in 25 localities, led by scientist and writer Frank Chapman, changed the course of ornithological

history. On Christmas Day in 1900, the small group posed an alternative to the ‘side hunt,’ a Christmas day activity in which teams competed to see who could shoot the most birds and small mammals. Instead, Chapman proposed that they identify, count, and record all the birds they saw, founding what is now considered to be the world’s most significant citizen-based conservation effort. Volunteers are essential to the success of the CBC. You don’t need to be an expert but it helps to be familiar with local bird species. In any case, participants in the field counts will be placed in a team led by an experienced birder and everyone is welcome. You will need a pair of bin-

Lifeline service credited with saving life of local woman By MARLA DOWDALL mdowdall@perfprint.ca

News – “I owe my life to Lifeline,” says Doris Kierstead of Brockville. The 93-year-old, or as she says, “39 backwards,” had an unfortunate incident two years ago in January. Tripping over her winter boots, as she fell she struck her right arm on the corner of a table. Cutting deeply down to muscle, she landed face down on the floor. Bleeding profusely, she managed to get turned back over and set up beside the table. With the phone only six inches away she was still unable to reach it as she had also dislocated her left shoulder and broken her arm. Knowing help was only the push of

a button away, she reached for the Lifeline pendant around her neck. Help was soon on its way. Kierstead was telling her story from the Donner Room at the Community and Primary Health Care (CPHC) Health and Wellness Centre of Excellence, Dec. 4. “Thank God I had my Lifeline,” she described. She had just had it installed only a few short months before in September. “If it wasn’t for Lifeline I wouldn’t be here today.” Now, Kierstead advocates for those living alone to make the investment. “It saved mine (life) and it could save yours.” She stressed that accidents and emergencies are never planned and that is why she keeps her Lifeline button

around her neck. Kierstead was born and spent her early years on the east coast. She had a dream as a child of playing the piano and made that dream a reality. After her husband had passed away and caring for her sick parents, who had also passed away, she decided to move to Brockville. She continues to be active and plays the piano regularly at locations such as St. Lawrence Lodge, St. Vincent, at local churches and other locations.

lives.” The company has subscribers across the United States and Canada. Ruth Kitson, executive director for CPHC, noted when they originally began offering the Lifeline service, monitoring and call taking was done locally. The decision was made later on to move call taking to Toronto. Having been to Toronto to see how the system works, she remembered a call she witnessed being taken. When the calls come in the name of the subscriber and their pertinent information Lifeline appears on a screen in front of the call David Doyle, vice president, mar- taker. They generally answer by sayketing and business development for ing, “Hello (then the name of the subPhilips Lifeline, noted, “Doris’ story is scriber) how are you doing?” One of a great one and there are many like it.

Service provider must ensure client is in the know when making decisions crankshaft with the transmission’s input shaft). Most failures have been traced to internal transmission clutch degradation. If this is indeed the case with this 2006 CRV, the repairs can range from a thorough flush and replacement of the fluid up to a complete transmission overhaul. Routine oil changes and tire rotations are great maintenance items to keep up on but are only part of a complete automotive protection program. Automatic transmissions require fluid and filter replacement on a regular basis. Honda Canada recommends replacement of the fluid for the first time on this CRV at 96,000 km and then every 48,000 km after that. This 2006 model with its 174,000 km on it should have had at least two fluid changes. This is a good opportunity to point out there are two main types of automatic transmission fluid services; one where the drain pan is removed and

the filter and fluid replaced and one where the fluid is replaced by means of specialized equipment which flushes it out (done with or without a filter change). With most automatic transmissions a simple drain and replace service will only involve replacing less than half the total volume of fluid (the rest stays trapped in various internal passages and inside the torque convertor). As one of the points of doing this service in the first place is to remove suspended fluid debris and particles from inside the transmission, leaving over half of the fluid unchanged isn’t the best way to do things. To complicate things, often shops that can complete the flush method don’t always recommend a filter

change at the same time. So, if you’re going to get this service done (and it’s critical to the long life of a very expensive-to-repair component) get a flush type done with a filter change. The other comment in DJ’s letter that caught my attention was the advice he received from his dealership service department to simply shift the transmission into D3 to eliminate the shudder (by pressing the button at the end of the gear shift lever). This bypassed a major feature of the vehicle (the lock-up torque convertor) designed to improve fuel mileage and our reader did note that this CRV’s fuel economy took a dive after the vehicle was used predominantly in the D3 gear. All the ramifications of putting off a needed repair must be explained by the service provider to ensure the customer is making as an informed decision as possible.

Doris Kierstead, 93, of Brockville, credits Lifeline with saving her life. With the push of this button she was able to summon help after a fall in her home that left her unable to reach the telephone. The Lifeline service is offered locally throughout Lanark, Leeds and Grenville by the CPHC and is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

The vehicle still does this shudder now and I put the gear shift in ‘D3’ mode (there is a push-button depression on the gear shift). What causes this? Are there any TSB’s? What’s the fix-up?

Merry Christmas Dad and Dan I Am Always With You When I am gone, release me, let me go, I have so many things to see and do. You mustn’t tie yourself to me with too many tears, But be thankful we had so many good years. How much you’ve given me in happiness, I thank you for the love that you have shown, But now it’s time that I travel on alone. So grieve for me a while, if grieve you must, Then let your grief be comforted by trust That it is only for a while that we must part. So treasure the memories with your heart, I won’t be far away, for life goes on. And if you need me, call and I will come, Though you can’t see or touch me, I will be near. And if you listen with your heart, you’ll hear All my love around you soft and clear. And then, when you come this way alone, I’ll greet you with a smile and a Welcome Home. Forever in our hearts Marion Rick, Terry, David, Cindy and families

McNAMEE, Peter – In loving memory of a dear husband and father who passed away February 4, 2013. Christmas in Heaven I see the countless Christmas trees around the world below With tiny lights, like Heaven’s Stars, reflecting on the snow. The sight is so spectacular, please wipe away that tear, For I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year. I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear But the sounds of music can’t compare with the Christmas choir up here. I have no words to tell you, the joy their voices bring, But it is beyond description to hear the angels sing. I know how much you miss me. I see the pain inside your heart, But I am not so far away we really aren’t apart. So be happy for me dear ones. You know I hold you dear And be glad I’m spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year. I send you each a special gift from my Heavenly home above. I send you each a memory of my undying love. After all “Love” is the gift, more precious than pure gold. It was always most important in the story Jesus told. Please love and keep each other, as my Father said to you, For I can’t count the blessings for love he has for you. So, have a Merry Christmas and wipe away that tear. Remember, I’m spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year. From Mary and our family

IN MEMORIAM CLEMENT, Dennis In loving memory of a dear husband, father and grandfather, who passed away December 18, 2011. Those whom we love go out of sight, But never out of mind. They are cherished in the hearts, Of those they left behind. Loving and kind in all his ways, Upright right and just in all his days. Sincere and true in heart and mind, Beautiful memories he left behind. A constant wish that he was here, Others were taken, yes I know, But he was ours And we loved him so. Always remembered and loved Margaret, Sherri, Jason, Jesse and Brandy MAJORE, Kathleen In memory of our loving mother who passed away December 22, 2010.

REGIONAL NEWS

Connected to your community

CDSBEO schools raise more than $19,000 in support of Typhoon Haiyan relief News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The school communities of the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario (CDSBEO) have responded to the devastating typhoon tragedy in the Philippines by raising more than $19,000 through special fundraisers and school events, since early November. Students, staff members, parents and local communities have expressed their concern for vic-

tims and survivors of the recent disaster by enthusiastically participating in an overwhelming number of fundraising events held at schools across the board. The collective total of $19,221.75 (raised as of Dec. 5) will double to $38,443.50 under the Government of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan to match donations dollar for dollar. In many of the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s schools, ongoing projects will continue

to push that amount higher during the coming weeks and months. The money will be distributed through the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace. Staff and students engaged in a variety of activities in order to raise the money, including coin challenges, hat days, pajama days, and dress-down/ casual days. School staff also provided

students with details about the Philippines and the scope of the disaster in terms of the number of people affected. Director of Education, William J. Gartland, praised the work of students and staff. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This response is a true reflection of the commitment to justice that our students and staff demonstrate day in and day out,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have seen that others in our world are

suffering and they have responded in a positive way. They truly exemplify our board theme as they are witnesses to hope.â&#x20AC;? The Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario operates 40 elementary and 10 secondary schools across eight counties. Submitted by the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario.

Regina-built 1940 Pontiac with same owner 35 years Other Pontiacs for 1940 were equipped with inline flathead six or straight eight engines. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Soon after buying it, I had it repainted (a mistake) because of a few minor fender scrapes and some peeling on the hood. I cleaned and painted the underside and detailed the engine compartment, but the car remains unrestored. A few years ago, I replaced the 4:11 gears with 3:55 gears from a â&#x20AC;&#x2122;52 Powerglide car to give the Pontiac longer legs on the highway. I also had the hubcaps and bumpers replated (the grille and other trim items are original and near perfect), and I added bumper guards, beauty rings, and wide whitewall tires. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lovely tour car, now with about 75,000 miles, and always attracts a lot of attention.â&#x20AC;? Soon after buying the Pontiac, George joined the Manitoba Classic and Antique Automobile Club

(http:/mcaac.mb.ca) and has been active with this organization ever since. The club was founded in 1960 and now has about

200 members. As George mentions, his 1940 Pontiac was built at the GM plant in Regina. According to Cars

of Canada by Durnford and Baechler, that plant opened in December 1928 as a five-building complex that included a body-building plant and a one-third mile test track. The first car built there was a 1929 Chevrolet. Other cars, including McLaughlinBuick, Pontiac, and Oldsmobile, were also built

there. Regina was selected for its central location as a distribution point and also because labour was available during the farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; offseason. The Oshawa factory list price was $1,002 for a 1940 Pontiac Arrow 2-door sedan and $1,059 for the Arrow Deluxe. Regina prices may have been slightly higher. R0032315052_1114

Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; George Rogers of Winnipeg, Manitoba, became active in the old car hobby in 1978 when he purchased his first old car as an adult. The car was an original 1940 Pontiac 2-door sedan being sold by sealed tender for the estate of the original owner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I saw it, I just had to own it,â&#x20AC;? recalls George. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I stewed over my bid, submitted it, then replaced it with a higher bid. To my delight, my second bid won and I later learned that my first bid would not have won. The car was meticulously maintained with 60,000 miles. It was built in Regina, and as a Canadian-built Pontiac, it is more Chevrolet than Pontiac. It has the 216 cubic inch overhead-valve 90 horsepower six cylinder engine, vacuum-powered gearshift (80 per cent automatic, only 20 per cent driver effort according to GM ads), and a 4:11 rear end.â&#x20AC;?

Director puts own spin on classic story with latest Hobbit installment rest of the dwarves continue on their quest to reclaim the dwarven kingdom. Over hill and through forest they must go â&#x20AC;&#x201C; facing giant spiders and wood elves till they reach Lake Town in the shadow of the Lonely Mountain, and finally to the mountain itself. Bilbo continues to use the ring to evade danger and help his friends. They are pursued by orcs, but find help in the skin changer Beorn (Mikael Persbrandt). Dark stirrings in Dol Guldor call Gandalf away to investigate. They are captured by the Elf king Thranduil (Lee Pace), but are unexpectedly helped by Tauriel (Evangeline Lily) and the prince Legolas (Orlando Bloom) himself. Bard (Luke Evans) helps them get into Lake Town, but the orcs are relentless. Still the

My Take MARK HASKINS

company pushes on for the mountain. Inside the Lonely Mountain there is still the beast to contend with. Smaug (Benedict Cumberbatch) is a creature of terrible fury and tremendous evil. He is fire. He is death. He is dragon. To say the film is a departure from the book is an understatement. There are those fans out there who are wondering what makes Peter Jackson think he can tell the story better than Tolkien. To them I would say

that in our long tradition of storytelling, when stories were passed down from storyteller to listener, with each new telling the story would change. Each storyteller leaves their mark on the story. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we do, and whether you agree with how Jackson is telling the story or not, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s undeniable that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s telling one heck of a story. The Desolation of Smaug is another gift of movie magic that continues to be a work of such surreal beauty. It steals your breath

as it brings a tear to your eye. Its story is a gripping adventure thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as much about the characters as it is about their feats. Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage and all the rest of the company of dwarves are perfect. They are joined by the likes of Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lily, Luke Evans, Sylvester McCoy, and Stephen Fry who are no less perfect. Then there is Benedict Cumberbatch who, with each syllable uttered, gives voice to all of Smaugâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cruel glory. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difficult to judge a film when you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen it all, but I can say that after seeing two thirds of The Hobbit I long to see its conclusion. Mark Haskinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; column is a regular feature of the EMC.

MOVIE: The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug STARRING: Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Evangeline Lily, Orlando Bloom, Luke Evans and Benedict Cumberbatch DIRECTOR: Peter Jackson RATING: PG Arts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I was skeptical about The Hobbit being made as a trilogy. Mind you this isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a true trilogy. This is a single film broken into three parts that takes three years to watch. Still, now that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen two thirds of The Hobbit Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m beginning to come around to Peter Jacksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way of thinking.
