USB drives and CDs, were anonymously dropped off at homes in the area, as well as delivered by mail. The investigations follow a series of sudden changes in staff at the municipality, including the resignation of its chief administrative officer (CAO), John Reagan, on May 21 after he took an extended leave of absence for personal reasons in January. Former treasurer, Sheila Kehoe, also vacated her position in January. Both Reagan and Kehoe had been employed by the municipality for less than two years. To fill the positions, the municipality hired retired United Counties of Leeds and Grenville director of corporate services and treasurer, Nigel White, on a part-time basis as interim

If you struggle to understand, you’re not alone, in fact 47% of Canadians over the age of 60 have hearing loss.1 Your hearing difficulties could be caused by damaged hearing hair cells inside your inner ear (cochlea). When damage occurs in the high-frequency areas of the cochlea (where consonants are heard), speech may sound garbled and comprehension could become difficult. The right hearing aid could help you improve your comprehension.

"To protect a worker from workplace harassment, an employer shall ensure that, (a) an investigation is conducted into incidents and complaints of workplace harassment that is appropriate in the circumstances." The release also states that members of staff and council will not be commenting further, as confidential personnel matters are involved. This is the most recent news that the Advance has received from the municipality since it was announced on July 24 that a police investigation was launched into the public distribution of unwarranted recordings of staff conversations. The recordings, found on

New insight into plans for the Kemptville Campus Education and Community Hub have surfaced. Five months after the Municipality of North Grenville purchased the campus and a feasibility study was completed by BDO with the recommendation that it become a multi-tenant, mixed-use site, the official business plan and draft strategic plan for 2018-2024 for the Kemptville Campus Education and Community Hub (KCECH) have been released. Patricia Rémillard, current project manager at KCECH, and Kelly Campbell of BDO Canada presented the draft strategic plan and business plan for the hub at the Sept. 4 committee of the whole meeting. The seven-year draft strategic plan was created by BDO with input from key partners: the French public school board, Conseil des écoles publiques de l'Est de l'Ontario (CEPEO), the Municipality of North Grenville, and staff from KCECH. The plan contains six 'strategic directions' which establish the aspirational vision for the hub, built on priorities such as financial sustainability, climate change resiliency, low-carbon innovation, and the utilization and maintenance of natural resources on-campus. "We really want to make sure that the campus property is energy efficient and environmentally sustainable," said Campbell. "The commitment is to advance the community mindset according to these principles, as the foundation for the first phase of the hub's development." According to the strategic plan, financial sustainability will be achieved through the generation of tenancy revenue by renting and leasing campus space, as well as the limiting of expenditures through provincial and federal funding opportunities and operational efficiencies. The plan also describes a dynamic, collaborative culture at the hub, with enhanced visibility through target marketing and communications. Innovations to reduce the hub's carbon footprint will come in the form of specialized skills programs in low-carbon agricultural innovation and food production, as well as low-carbon technologies in the local agricultural sector with continued support from the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food, and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA).

Once recruited, the hub's board of directors will be an integral factor in executing the strategic plan. Rémillard said the federal not-forprofit application has been made, and its registration is confirmed.

100 MEN WHO CARE SELECTS KEMPTVILLE YOUTH CENTRE AS NEXT DONATION RECIPIENT PAULINA HREBACKA phrebacka@metroland.com 100 Men Who Care North Grenville held its fourth quarterly meeting on Sept. 5 at the Kemptville Legion. Following the usual routine of registration, presentations, and the voting period, the men brainstormed new and unique ways to give back to the community as the holiday season approaches, in addition to their individual donations of $100 four times a year. The North Grenville chapter of 100 Men Who Care have recruited 61 members to date, supporting local charities since November 2017. So far, the group has donated $3,900 to Rideau Hill Camp, $4,750 to

Children's Mental Health of Leeds and Grenville, and $5,170 to House of Lazarus. At their Sept. 5 meeting, the group observed three presentations from North Grenville Accessible Transportation (NGAT), the Kemptville Legion Poppy Fund, and the Kemptville Youth Centre (KYC). The presentations were followed by a question period before the members voted on where the collective donation should go. The Kemptville Youth Centre was the charity to receive the most votes, following a presentation by its vice president, Cyndy Batchelor. KYC is an all-inclusive safe space where youth can go after school to do homework, play music, or spend time with friends.

There's always an adult supervisor on-site, and the centre offers life skills programs such as Cook Night every Thursday. "The Kemptville Youth Centre opens its doors each month to 45 new members," said Batchelor. "We work to keep the youth engaged, safe, and off the streets." It costs approximately $180,000 annually to keep the centre open including the mortgage and utilities, staffing, and programming. The funds from 100 Men Who Care North Grenville will go towards maintenance and building costs, as well as food costs. "We provide several different food events for our kids, such as Bake Night on Tuesdays and Cook Night on Thursdays, and we also

The group consists of 61 registered members and continues to grow. As the holiday season approaches, the men are brainstorming new ways to give back to their community. have a snack shack for them." Batchelor explained that KYC has an open food policy, and that many youths rely on the centre for their food programs. "We have a lot of youth that especially come on Mondays and Tuesdays when our snack shack is full," said Batchelor. "They're starving."

Batchelor says about 1520 youth members attend the centre early in the week, then the numbers dwindle down until Cook Night on Thursdays, which draws 20-30. "You can tell they're not getting fed properly at home; they're coming in to eat," said Batchelor. "So, filling our snack shack is really important."

The communal donation from the Sept. 5 meeting will be made to KYC in the near future once all funds are collected. To learn more about the Kemptville Youth Centre, visit www.kyc.team.

find twiddle muff patterns on our website," she said. The Fibre Extravaganza will also feature a knitting circle dedicated to Katy Pominville; a local woman who learned to knit in 1915 and kept up the craft until the week that she passed away at the age of 109. "She was a lovely lady, a longtime resident of Kemptville," said Ward. "She knit every day, and made socks, mitts and hats for the hospital. We would like to honour her, so we will have a dedication to her." Another special feature at the event will be a heritage spinning wheel on display, generously provided by the North Grenville Historical Society. Ward also had a special shawl designed for the inaugural event, for which the pattern is also available on the website. Aside from fibre products, vendors will also sell accessories, buttons, pins, and more. Admission will cost $5 for adults and $2 for those aged 12 and under. Parking is free, and there is an ATM located onsite. For more information or to volunteer at the event, visit FibreExtravaganza.com.

A new event showcasing local artisans and fibre producers will take over the North Grenville Municipal Centre on Saturday, Sept. 22. The inaugural Leeds Grenville Fibre Extravaganza, spearheaded by Brenda Ward, is an opportunity to shop for locally sourced fibre products, contribute a few stitches to community creations, and rediscover the timeless crafts of knitting, crocheting, and more. The event will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the municipal centre (285 County Road 44 in Kemptville). For those less familiar with what fibres actually are, they're primarily fleeces, yarns, and wool. At the Fibre Extravaganza, patrons will find handspun and dyed yarns, specialized tools and accessories, and local producers experienced in spinning, weaving, rug hooking, felting, and more. "We wanted to educate the public on what's out there," said Ward. "A goal of ours is to get into the schools and get them back into what they used to do - teach students how to knit, teach them how to crochet." Ward is hoping that local schoolteachers will attend the event and consider delivering the traditional techniques to students through programs at school. "We want to teach them the older aspects of knitting, because it's kind of becoming a lost art," she said. Ward came up with the idea for the inaugural Fibre Extravaganza while attending other fibre-focused events, such as the popular Twist Fibre Festival in Quebec. "When I came back, I went to the library for our weekly Tuesday night knitting club and a couple of the ladies said we needed to have it in Kemptville, so I accepted the challenge." Ward attended the Twist festival last year with 'save the date' cards for the Fibre Extravaganza and handed them out to all the vendors.

"That was in November," she said. "I started following up with the vendors, and by the 24th of February, I was completely booked." Ward recruited 34 vendors for the inaugural event, from as close as South Mountain, Iroquois and North Gower and as far as New Brunswick. "We also have a vendor coming from the far north tip of Quebec near Iqaluit, where they have musk ox," said Ward. "They have an agreement with the Inuit population there, where they take the meat and the vendor takes the hide." The musk ox products are anticipated to be a hit as they are a considered a beautiful native Canadian rarity. Alpaca and cashmere products will also be featured at the show. A spectacle located outside of the municipal centre will be Purlin' J's Roving Yarn Co., a refurbished rescue fire truck

from Kingston that's been repurposed as a yarn truck. "It's so cool and runs totally on solar power," said Ward. Vendors will sell their fibre products in 'hanks,' and a yarn-winding table will be onsite where patrons can take their yarn and wind it into a 'cake.' A small donation will be requested to use the winding table, in support of Neon Night Fun Run for childhood cancer research, set for Sept. 22 in Riverside Park. "We will also have a twiddle muff station, where patrons can create knitted or crocheted muffs," said Ward. "It's especially helpful to people that suffer from anxiety or dementia, because you can stitch a set of beads on a string or a pompom to it for them to 'twiddle' when they are feeling uneasy." Ward and her local knitting group have made twiddle muffs for the Beth Donovan Hospice at no charge. They're going to make a community twiddle muff at the event that patrons may contribute a few rows to if they wish. "We'll do as many as we can. If anyone wants to do them ahead of time, they can

OPINION EDITORIAL

COMMUNITY NEWS IN THE DIGITAL AGE What is the role of a community newspaper in 2018? This is a question we take seriously here at Metroland, where we pride ourselves in our dedication to bringing the communities we live and work in news that is important to them. We're finding that certain kinds of stories that were relevant 20-plus years ago are no longer so due to technological advances like smartphones and social media platforms. For example, our papers have traditionally covered high school graduations and first days of school. But lately we've been asking ourselves if this sort of coverage is really the best way to serve our communities? Anyone with a Facebook account knows to expect their feed flooded with all their friends' kids' adorable back-to-school photos every year on the first day of school. Everyone who knows and cares about each of these kids will see and appreciate these photos. Would a reporter's time not be better served digging deeper into issues that impact the community as a whole? Analytics also tell us that people care about local business stories, but not necessarily the kind that have traditionally been covered by community papers. Readers want to know about good local places to eat and if a new kind of store is coming to town; they care less about ribbon cuttings and cheque presentations. Perhaps once again, technology is a factor. Most businesses have their own Facebook pages these days, and if the owner wants to hand a huge cheque to a local charity, they can tell the world about it themselves via social media. The same can be said of sports coverage. What purpose does it serve for your local paper to recap games and list scores when most leagues and teams have their own websites and social media pages that do the exact same thing? We're confident that if a local team or athlete has a good story to tell, this is indeed best handled by one of our trained journalists. But in terms of the day-to-day reports, does it really serve anyone for us to be "competing" with, say, the Smith Falls Bears' Facebook page? Times change, and like every other industry, we must change with them. One thing remains the same, however, and that is our dedication is to factual, relevant reporting. Our role as a trusted news source is not something we take lightly, and our goal will always be to bring our readers stories and information that are important to them.

Times change, and like every other industry, we must change with them.

WHO WE ARE

CANDIDATE CO-ORDINATION CAN BE FRUSTRATING AT TIMES THE DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED, WRITES LAURIE WEIR LAURIE WEIR Column

Well, a few weeks ago, Ashley Kulp (fellow news editor) and I sent out emails to some 150-plus election candidates requesting answers to those burning questions: Why should we vote for you? Who are you, and how are you going to make a difference? We also asked for a photo. Easy stuff, we thought. Sound familiar? I do hope so. If you have already sent in your info, thank you! If you haven't, it's not too late. Deep breath! I do need to apologize. I forgot Montague participants, so there is a new deadline - Sept. 16, 4:30 p.m.

For everyone! We have a love-hate relationship with this election process. We are tasked with collecting these tidbits and photos, editing them, and colour correcting the photos. We then package and send them to our pagination team for publication. We had a deadline of Sept. 7; but of course, that is not the real deadline. No siree. We have extended that now for a variety of challenging reasons. Some of the excuses for missing deadlines are hysterical! • "As you can appreciate, I have just been so busy..." (Not sure what to say in response.) • "Is this photo OK?" - (In comes a screengrab png. Oh, did I mention there were five people in the photo, so the headshot of the candidate is going to be the size of a postage stamp.) • "I know how important deadlines are..." (No, clearly you don't, but it gets bet-

ter). "I work for a newspaper." (Brilliant, so you DO know the importance of deadlines.) • "I don't have a photo..." (Great, we can insert a cat picture.) • "I am not good at computing..." (Perfect, you may want to get up to speed before elected to office.) • "Can I get an extension, please?" (Sure, why not. Our deadlines are not that important.) • Five consecutive emails from one person with changes in each one. (Ugh.) • Anything but word documents and jpg files. We are hoping to have our special election section out in a couple of weeks. Laurie Weir is the news editor for the Smiths Falls Record News and the Perth Courier.

All of the school boards currently on-campus have an adult education mandate focused on new technologies and emerging trends. "Much like the expectations of youth education, adults will promote the knowledge they gain through certificate programs, benefiting their communities and respective industries," Campbell noted. It was recognized in the business plan that in addition to a geographic impact, climate change also has a very real impact on human health and wellness. "Research shows that having a greenspace does have a positive impact on mental health and a reduction in stress levels," said Campbell. "The intent is to have an environmental health and wellness approach to foster sustainable relationships with nature, have a greenspace for walking and outdoor pursuits, programming focused on arts, culture, leisure, and recreation, and to have a community garden that could be focused on local food." Campbell added that the enhancement of greenspace on-campus will have a beneficial impact on the health and wellness of the community. Plans to boost local economic development at the hub includes the attraction of businesses from surrounding areas by making the hub the centre of a lowcarbon innovation and local economic sector. "This will provide the opportunity for spinoff benefits of businesses and growth opportunities in the local community," said Campbell. As a result of the chang-

ing political climate at the provincial, federal, and international levels, Campbell says economic growth opportunities relating to climate change innovation are projected to evolve, and the hub will be able to contribute to the community's development as a leader in the field. "The renewal of Kemptville Campus will offer demonstration opportunities for best practices in net zero building retrofits, waste water re-use, and energy conservation," said Campbell. "Social and studentrun enterprises can also be incubated in the co-operative education programming and co-working spaces on campus until such time they are viable as local small businesses." For those interested in tenancy at KCECH, long-

term tenants must have a direct focus on climate change resiliency and lowcarbon innovation. Tenants will have access to greenhouses, foot paths, office locations, auditoriums, grass fields, cultivable land, and gardens, and be within close proximity to Kemptville District Hospital. Short-term rental terms are applicable to any individual or group renting facilities from the Kemptville Campus on a one-time or limited re-occurring basis, including special events considered to align with the campus' three pillars of education and training, health and wellness, and economic development. The KCECH's financial model and preliminary budget includes a $3.7 million reserve fund, which came in the form of an in-

vestment from the CEPEO when the school board purchased the Rorke and Administration buildings on campus, as well as approximately seven acres of land. Rémillard said the funds are to be used primarily for capital expenditures, and can also be used to offset operating expenses. "Gross revenues are derived from long-term leases, short-term rentals, shared facilities fees and recoverable costs," she explained. "In the 2018 year this current fiscal year - a total of $347,840 will be taken from the reserve and there will be no carryover deficit. The objective in this seven-year scenario, is that revenues will cover all operating and loan expenses, as we have a reserve for seven years to draw from for capital expenditures."

lieves the best way to approach the recruitment is through public campaign, by posting on the municipal website and placing ads in local newspapers requesting that people apply. "We'll be looking for individuals who are very experienced in each of the three pillars, as well as senior administration, education, finance, climate change resiliency and low carbon innovation, entrepreneurship, and health and wellness," she continued. Once the board of directors are in place, they will recruit for the executive director for the education and community hub. "My sense is that we'll have a pretty healthy response," Rémillard said. A member of the public commented on how vague the strategic plan is in its early stages, and asked if a more detailed version will be made available to the public. Rémillard assured that the board of directors will have the opportunity to review, revise, and apply additional details to the plans which will be made available publicly following council's approval. Coun. Jim Bertram asked about the ongoing development plan for the hub, in terms of the future development of the property once all of the campus buildings are utilized. "Before proceeding to operational plans, I would contend that the master plan for the campus needs to be developed, and that master plan would deal with the requirements for potential building expansion," Rémillard replied. "We have many people coming forward expressing interest and sharing ideas for certain sectors of the campus. They're all great ideas, but I would say that we need to develop a master plan for the whole piece before we make any commitments." Business plan The seven-year business plan for KCECH reiterates the hub's focus on the three main pillars of education and training, health and wellness, and economic development.

"When we look at the Kemptville Campus Education and Community Hub, the objective is to bring together relevant stakeholders in Ontario," said Campbell. Potential partnerships can be formed with stakeholders from the public, private, and not-for-profit sectors "to provide a comprehensive, holistic approach to addressing climate change resiliency and lowcarbon innovation," she said. "We want to ensure that partners have that as a key goal." Under the pillar of education and training, the hub will represent the entire range of education from early years, elementary, and secondary to adult education. "Education will be enriched with opportunities to learn about climate change in an agricultural setting," said Campbell. "It will provide exploratory learning and students will be better able to internalize learnings on climate change at a young an advanced age; particularly by having the ability to have on-site learning with hub tenants." Primary and secondary schools located on the campus will promote an understanding of climate change and the internalization of low-carbon practices from a young age, leveraging and contributing to the collective environmental mindset. "Students will act as a conduit to transfer knowledge learned on campus into the community, ensure the success of the climate change resiliency movement, and promote the hub as a leader in low-carbon innovation," said Campbell.

DIANA FISHER REVEALS WHY AUTUMN IS HER FAVOURITE SEASON DIANA FISHER Column

That song is ringing in my head, "it's the most wonderful time ... of the year." No - I don't have kids returning to school. Mine are all grown up. We don't even have international students this year. I'm not celebrating the return of kids to the classroom. But autumn is my favourite season, for so many reasons. The calendar doesn't officially enter the season until later in the month, but mentally I'm already there.

This year, for the first time, our apple tree is bearing fruit. I can't remember what kind they are supposed to be, but they are crispy and tart, so I'm guessing MacIntosh. The fruit is falling faster than I can collect it, though. That makes me miss Gracie, our apple-loving cow who used to break out of the barnyard this time of year to follow that heavenly scent. She busted out three times before I finally figured out I should just take a wheelbarrow of the ground apples over to her and dump them at the barn. Even before I could spill the sweet-smelling bounty onto the ground she would bound over like a huge puppy and start snorting up the fruit. Eventually Big Betty would catch on and come skipping over to join in. Half an hour later I would find the two of them passed out under a tree, having an ap-

ple-drunk snooze. I hear the back-to-back heatwaves we had this summer were really good for fruit trees. I love the summer sunshine but the heat is a bit much for me. I find the cooler temperatures in fall, combined with the softer, refracted light, to be quite energizing. And that's a good thing, because it's a very busy season for me. I have a number of events, fundraisers and galas to volunteer at in September. The first one was last week, when I MC'd the 40th annual Royalty Show at the 163rd Spencerville Fair. Think about that for a moment. Spencerville-area farmers have been gathering to show off their prized chickens, goats, pies and quilts for longer than Canada has been a country. It's nice to be reminded that there is a fresh new crop of young farmers and

cheerleaders of country living, ready to put down their mobile devices and represent their community agricultural society at county fairs and events, singing the praises of the farming life. Makenna, Navaeh, Max, Stryker and Chloe will do an awesome job as ambassadors this year and I look forward to seeing how the experience helps them to grow when I see them again next year. At the volunteer dinner before the event, a young teacher spoke up about the importance of the fair. She said when she took her classroom of youngsters to the Barn of Learning, they enjoyed the dairy cow exhibit and learned where milk came from. When they moved along to see the chickens, however, and were asked, "what do chickens give us?" some of the kids couldn't give an answer, and one said, "Milk!"

I guess I just assumed they would learn those basic things about where their food comes from, on whatever is today's version of Sesame Street. Or at least Paw Patrol, with Chick-o-leta. There's plenty to learn for all ages at your local county fair. I'll never forget when I visited the Metcalfe Fair for the first time. I was walking up to the huge double doors of the arena when they suddenly swung open, revealing a massive team of heavy horses pulling a wagon. One by one they passed me, hooves thundering, muscles rippling under shiny coats glossy with sweat. The sight just took my breath away. The heavy horses are still my favourite thing to watch at a county fair whether they are in a pulling contest or on parade. County fairs are also really great places to meet

cute farmers. Way back in 2005 I was at the Ottawa Ex, watching my daughters jostling around in line for a ride. I noticed a tall drink of water leaning up against a picnic table, his long legs in cowboy boots sticking out in front of him. Then I realized we had met before, at Kemptville College where he worked with my mom. I caught his eye, flashed him a smile and got one in return that drew me like a magnet. I went straight over to say hello and the rest, as they say, is history. Diana Leeson Fisher is a regular columnist who grew up in the small town of Kemptville.

He brought with him an American kestrel; Sadie, the red-tailed hawk; Toby, the Great Horned owl; Woody, a Harris hawk; and Sasquatch, the golden eagle. Many of the conservancy's birds have been featured in Canadian television shows. Morgan encouraged

SEPTEMBER BROUGHT A RETURN TO SUNDAY SCHOOL SPECIAL SURPRISE CREATED WARM MEMORIES, COLUMNIST MARY COOK RECALLS MARY COOK Column

looked like it had come from Briscoe’s General Store, and she took out the tiniest little red Bibles I had ever seen. In a low whisper, so as not to be overheard over the final hymn, she said each of our names and she handed out to us our very own little Bible. In ink, inside, she had carefully printed our name, and we were told that she expected us to read from it every night before we went to bed. I still hadn’t learned to read well, and so that chore fell to my sister, Audrey. Every night, Audrey who was high on religion at that time in her life, dutifully read a couple pages from my little red Bible. And then I would tuck it under my pillow, confident it would see me through until morning. My brother Emerson, when he saw what I had been given and who loved a free handout, told Mother he wouldn’t mind going to Sunday school the next week, and he was prepared to either stand through the whole service, or sit on the floor. Mother said he could forget it. Interested in an electronic version of Mary’s books?

As well as starting a whole new year back to the Northcote public school, September was a big month at the Lutheran Church too. There would have been no Sunday school over the summer months. Every parent of every child who was a member of the church was expected to give regular instructions in the holy word instead. Mother did the best she could with our nightly prayers, but with the summer months the busiest on the farm in the entire year, there was little time to give us lessons from the Bible. That isn’t to say we weren’t constantly reminded of the Ten Commandments and all they meant. Often, during the summer, the congregation was more sparse than usual, but once we had turned the corner from August to September, the pews were full, and the few people who made up the choir were back in their places on straight-backed chairs at the front of the church. We were all back to Sunday school in the little room at the back, shut off from the congregation by a thin door which did little to shut out the booming voice of the minister. Of course, that meant too, whoever was teaching Sunday school had to keep her or his voice low so as not to interfere with what was going on out front. I loved Sunday school almost as much as I loved going to the Northcote school during the week. Especially if the teacher that Sun-

day (we often had a different teacher every week or so) would read us a story from a book and not ask many questions! She would read from a little paper booklet of just a couple of pages, and there was always a coloured picture on the front referring to the story inside. We were allowed, afterwards, to take the paper home, which delighted me beyond words! Once my brothers were over the junior grades at the Northcote Side School, they were excused from Sunday school, and had to sit through the service with the congregation. Of course, this didn’t please my brothers one bit. Emerson said it was all he could do to keep his eyes open and stop his head from falling down on his chest when the minister gave his sermon, which could go on for an hour or more, depending on how heated up he was on the evils of the day. Emerson said he would much rather be in the back of the church in the Sunday school. But of course, his almost six-foot frame was beyond sitting in the little chairs we used, and so with Audrey, Everett and Earl, he had to sit with Mother and Father. That first day back at Sunday school, we children were in for a wonderful surprise. The teacher had to time her lesson perfectly, so that as soon as the last hymn was sung, she had to wind up in a hurry. That first day, as soon as the organist thundered out the first chord, our teacher reached behind her and took hold of a brown paper bag which

The 23rd annual Eastern Ontario Postcard Show brought in 17 dealers from Ontario and Quebec for a day-long show at the Merrickville Community Centre. It was free day for those who dropped by, complete with free coffee and snacks. Hosted by the Eastern Ontario Postcard Club, a steady stream of collectors and the curious alike stopped into the show that took place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. It was a great get-away for Whitby's Robert Montpetit, who enjoys collecting postcards and the postal history of Northern Ontario. "It's easy to drop one or two grand at this event," said the man who professes to have a photographic memory - albeit only at about 70 per cent these days. "I remember what cards I have, and it's always exciting to find ones that I don't." Monpetit has some

GRASSROOT GRANNIES STOP IN MERRICKVILLE ON ANNUAL RIDE TO TURN THE TIDE

Making a difference in your community!

PAULINA HREBACKA phrebacka@metroland.com The Grassroot Grannies continue to think globally and act locally. Through a variety of fundraising events, the group supports the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign; an initiative responding to the emerging crisis faced by African grandmothers as they struggle to care for millions of orphaned children in the midst of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The Stephen Lewis Foundation launched the campaign in 2006 to raise awareness, funds, and build solidarity among grandmothers in order to better understand and continue the important work being done at the grassroots level to turn the tide of AIDS in Africa. Since 2006, the Grassroot Grannies have raised $550,230 for the Stephen Lewis Foundation through annual events like the Ride to Turn the Tide. For the 9th consecutive year, the Grassroot Grannies embarked on their 260 km Ride to Turn the Tide through the Ottawa Valley from Sept. 5 to Sept. 7. The group consisted of 22 cyclists

of $70,895.08. The Grassroot Grannies are one of more than 240 "granny groups" across Canada, in support of the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign. Every group is independent and organizes their own fundraising initiatives. "We have three annual events; a plant sale in the spring that's been going for 12 years, the Ride to Turn the Tide in its 9th

year, and our Book Sale and Breakfast Buffet which we've been doing for eight years," said Hough. The Ride took off from Bushtukah, the event's major sponsor, at its Kanata location and ended at Bushtukah on Richmond Road in Westboro. Some new stops that the group has added to their bike ride in the past two years are at Bayview Public and Carleton Heights Public elementary schools in Ottawa.

Paulina Hrebacka/Metroland The Grassroot Grannies made their annual stop at Merrickville United Church Sept. 6 during their Ride to Turn the Tide fundraiser for African grandmothers with orphaned grandchildren that have lost their parents as a result of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Volunteers with the church prepared their usual lunch made with love for the grannies and presented them with a donation towards the Grandmothers to Grandmothers campaign, initiated by the Stephen Lewis Foundation. "In the spring, during education week, we teach the kids about supporting other countries and the

importance of grandmothers and older people keeping fit," said Hough. "Then, we cycle by in the fall with balloons on our bikes and the kids ask us all kinds of questions. They're really cute. Some of them are concerned about where we sleep, and others want to know if we all ride carbon fibre bikes," she laughed. Funds raised through the Grassroot Grannies'

efforts go directly to projects that enable grandmothers in Africa to support their orphaned grandchildren. "It might be to help them become entrepreneurs, or teaching sewing lessons so that they can sew uniforms, for example," said Hough. The Grassroot Grannies are mainly from the Kanata area. Nine grannies cycled this year, ac-

companied by friends, family, support people, and other avid cyclists from local communities. "We've stopped here for lunch every year, and they always have fabulous soup," Hough said while enjoying her lunch in Merrickville.

100 WOMEN WHO CARE READY TO SUPPORT LOCAL CHARITIES ONCE AGAIN PAULINA HREBACKA phrebacka@metroland.com

Open House

After a nice long summer break, 100 Women Who Care North Grenville will host their third quarterly meeting of 2018 on Thursday, Sept. 20. Now in its second year, the local chapter of 100 Women Who Care is growing by dozens of members each time they meet. The word is spreading about this wonderfully simple way to do something good for local charities. If you're interested, head over to the 100 Women Who Care North Grenville (NG) event page on Facebook and tell them you're planning to attend. Join the conversation about the local charities you would like to help out this quarter.

The meeting takes place at 5:30 p.m. at the eQuinelle Golf Club, in the large salon overlooking the scenic golf course. Have a cocktail and a snack and make some new friends. Following some social time and introductions, each individual member or group will cast a vote for their nominated charity of choice. Each individual member or group has committed to put forward $100 per quarter. At the end of the hour-long meeting, that money is collected and processed for donation to the winning charity. 100 Women Who Care NG has partnered with the Ottawa Community Foundation in 2018 to streamline their donation process. Members can log on to the founda-

tion's central website and enter "100 Women Who Care North Grenville" as the fund to receive their donation. This system automatically generates a tax receipt, making the whole operation that much easier. The founder of 100 Women Who Care NG, Ashley Vincent, says the group is excited to see how much money they can raise for worthy charities headquartered in and serving North Grenville this year. Last year, their first year, the local chapter raised just over $12,000 for charities serving everyone from children to seniors. For more information on 100 Women Who Care North Grenville, visit them on Facebook. To request an interview with one of the organizers of your local chapter, you can also send a message through the Facebook page.

Masonic Lodge In October 1839, some Masonic brethren from the village of St. Francis (later incorporated as the Town of Smiths Falls) opened a new lodge, initially using various locations in the village. In 1954, the lodge moved to its present site, formerly the Johnston Public School. Tours will showcase the symbolism of the Masonic order and its history in Smiths Falls.

Smiths Falls Town Hall This unique site features two heritage buildings – Lanark County’s first town hall and the old Central School – that were joined together in 1984 by a post-modern arch, creating a grand public entrance to the new municipal offices. BoÅth buildings were designated in 1977. Today, the old schoolhouse is the site of a new Welcome Centre, which opened in August. Smiths Falls Public Library This library, built in 1903 and designated as a heritage building in 1984, occupies a commanding site overlooking downtown Smiths Falls. The beautiful building is the only local example of the beaux arts style. Built with financial help from philanthropist Andrew Carnegie, it is one of the first of the Carnegie libraries in Canada that he actually visited. The Station Theatre Housed in the former Canadian Pacific Railway station, The Station Theatre opened in April 2010 after more than 11 years of planning, fundraising and construction. The 140-seat facility has become a focus for the performing arts in Smiths Falls, giving locals the experience of live theatre, concerts and films. It is also a sought-after venue for meetings and receptions. Trinity United Church Built in 1885, this beautiful church seats up to 350 people and still features much of its original Gothic design – including ornate marble pillars and magnificent archways. Thanks to renovations in recent years, the 16 outstanding stained-glass windows have been lovingly restored. And, with the installation of an elevator, the church is now fully accessible. Lannin Funeral Home and Reception Centre This stone building occupied by Lannin Funeral Home was built in the 1840s. One of the oldest stone structures in Smiths Falls, apart from the Rideau Canal locks, it operated as a hotel in the 1850s. InA 1914, new owners started the funeral home. This beautiful building has been in the community for over 145 years. Montague Food and Agriculture Museum Built with cedar from an 1850 barn, this building is a replica of a mid19th-century stack-wall machine shed once found throughout Lanark County. It houses approximately 1,000 artifacts from the 18th and 19th centuries that relate to food and agriculture. Photographs of 19thcentury farm life will also be on display. The site is open by appointment outside of Doors Open.

"It just seemed like the logical choice," said Wally Kaczkowski as he pondered his decision to donate land to the Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation. "The donation benefitted me and the community in many different ways." In early 2017, Kaczkowski started to reflect on his ownership of a 1.55-acre parcel nestled along the shore of the Rideau River just north of Kemptville. Too small to develop and with dwindling interest in the property from his sons, it just didn't seem to make sense to keep it anymore. "It is a nice chunk of shoreline and wetland," said Kaczkowski, while admitting that where it may not have been the best development purchase, it still has a value to the community. The retired teacher and MacSkimming Outdoor educator appreciates that the property has significant natural features and turned to the Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation (RVCF) to see if they were interested in protecting the green space. The RVCF has an active procurement plan and an established track record in receiving land donations. More and more families and individuals are considering giving their land to the conservation foundation. Some donors want to keep it undeveloped and in a natural state forev-

er - others welcome the tax benefits of their donations. Regardless of the motivation, the RVCF reviews the environmental benefits of the property prior to acceptance. The RVCF is particularly interested in land that is ecologically sensitive or has unique water-related features (wetlands, shorelines and aquifer recharge areas). The Kaczkowski property fit the foundation's review process. "Normally we don't accept such small properties," said Kristy Giles, Conservation Lands Planner. "But this property will support the growing neighbourhood of public properties in the nearby vicinity - making the area a much more productive and well-functioning natural zone along this stretch of the Rideau River." Natural shorelines and wetland areas are valuable areas. They help maintain clean water, they prevent soil erosion, reduce the impacts of flooding and provide wildlife with food and habitat. They are incredibly productive ecosystems - comparable to rainforests and coral reefs. The Kaczkowski property is the perfect blend of natural shoreline, wetland and trees that provides value habitat for many species including the endangered Henslow's Sparrow and the rare Eastern Musk Turtle which have both

been seen at the site. "Staff were easy to approach and discuss options with. And what's impressive is that all costs are covered, making it very appealing to donors like myself," said Kaczkowski. The conservation foundation pays all of the costs associated with the transfer of title. Although donated, gifted lands are not free. Each land donation could have a cost of up to $10,000 in terms of legal, surveying and appraisal fees plus the ongoing taxes, maintenance and fund in addition to the land itself. Some trust and conservation groups may only accept new lands if such fees are forthcoming. "It cost me nothing - instead,

the foundation gave me a charitable tax receipt for the fair market value of my land and the satisfaction of providing a lasting gift to future generations of watershed residents," said Kaczkowski. "The RVCF has a fund to help offset the cost of accepting these lands on behalf of the public," says Michael Poliwoda, executive director of the Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation. "These hidden costs of a donation are in large measure funded by the RVCF's Environmental Land Fund made possible by annual support from Mattamy Homes. Obviously, it would be a shame to lose the opportunity to protect an important piece of the Rideau Valley - after all, no more wilderness is being made." The local community can help RVCF continue to accept important land donations by donating to the Steve Simmering Endowment Fund. This fund supports the perpetual costs of maintenance and ownership. Kaczkowski's waterfront is now one of 51 unique parcels owned by the conservation foundation and managed by the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority. The sites, including the Boucher property,

Curtis property and DePencier property, are to be kept in a natural state in perpetuity and are located across the entire Rideau watershed. RVCF is a member of the Canadian Land Trust Alliance and adhere to the standards and practices set out in the land trust documents. Guiding principles in our land donation program include integrity, perpetual responsibility, and excellence in public service and good governance. Special thanks to Wally Kaczkowski for his community-minded gift. If you are interested in learning more about land donations here in eastern Ontario's Rideau watershed, contact Michael Poliwoda or visit the RVCF website at www.rvcf.ca.

CONSIDERING ADOPTING YOUR NEXT FELINE FRIEND FROM LAWS The Lanark Animal Welfare Society is featuring four friendly felines that are now up for adoption at the shelter. This week's pets:

Vigorous Please say hello to handsome Vigorous, who was brought into LAWS at the age of two weeks, orphaned and alone. A LAWS volunteer took him into foster and fed him until he was able to eat on his own. He earned is name because of his hearty appetite. Now, almost three months old, Vigorous is playful, enjoys playing with other cats, is inquisitive and purrs as vigorously as he eats! He is ready to find his forever

home from his foster home in Perth. Should you be interested in meeting him then please leave us a Facebook message or call the shelter with your phone number and the foster mom will call you to set up a meet and greet.

Melita Melita is a very friendly threeyear-old female cat who was found astray walking the streets. This attractive black beauty is always ready for play time but prefers to have her paws on the ground. She likes to sit next to you for much appreciated affection. Melita is good with the other cats in her room and would wel-

come a loving home.

Meka and Maguire Please meet Meka and Maguire. We think that these fourmonth-old kittens are brother and sister as they arrived together after they were rescued from the streets in Smiths Falls. The staff at Pet Valu tells us that they are super friendly, very playful and really looking forward to find their forever home. We hope they can go to a home together as they really enjoy each other's company! Two kittens are better and easier than one anyway as they can entertain each other while you're away or at work. These two cuties are available at Pet Valu in Carleton Place. Follow us at www.facebook.com/lanarkanimals and/ or lanarkanimals.ca. LAWS is located at 253 Glenview Rd., Smiths Falls.

JEFF MAGUIRE ENCOURAGES FANS TO SUPPORT THIS HIGH LEVEL OF CCHL PLAY ACTION JEFF MAGUIRE Column

Showcase results I'm not big on predictions. But I do think the results from the Fall Showcase (Sept. 1 to 3) in Kanata offer some indication. Carleton Place, who just

missed out on a fifth consecutive league championship last spring, falling to arch rival Ottawa Junior Senators, went 3-0 in the recent showcase event. Their three victories in as many days included a 3-1 opening game decision over those same Junior Sens. Carleton Place posted the best statistics in the three game event, scoring a combined 15 goals and allowing just three. Also posting perfect records during the showcase were Kemptville 73s and Hawkesbury Hawks. Two other CCHL teams from our area, Smiths Falls Bears and Brockville Braves, were both a solid 2-1. The competition serves as the season opener,

meaning all of the games count in the league standings! In perhaps the biggest surprise the Junior Sens were winless. But after putting everything into last season, in which they won both the Bogart Cup (CCHL championship) and the Fred Page Cup (Eastern Canadian Jr. A championship), Ottawa is rebuilding. Given their excellent coaching and management staff I'm sure Sens will be heard from before the long campaign is over next spring! Although I'm not one for predictions, this much I can tell you. If you enjoy hockey but have not seen any games in the Jr. A CCHL you should do your-

On a sweltering Labour Day weekend the hockey campaign - yes hockey, already - began in our region. I realize hockey is a year-round business in this country. But I am talking about league hockey and the beginning of a brand new regular season. The Central Canada Hockey League (CCHL) held its annual "Fall Showcase," an event that ran for three days at Bell Sensplex in Kanata. Outside it looked and felt like anything but fall. One of the hottest, most humid summers in recent memory continued with outside temperatures soaring to 28 C and humidity values touching 40 C at times. Whew! The 12 team Jr. A league runs a long campaign with each team playing 62 games. So they need to start early as the regular season runs all the way to mid-March. This year they partnered with the Hockey Eastern Ontario (HEO) midget AAA league to organize a season-opening extravaganza that featured 36 total games. The reason for so many games in one arena complex is to give scouts an opportunity for an early look at the talent available in both the CCHL and the regional AAA midget loop. More than 150 scouts from the National Hockey League, National Collegiate Athletic Association, the three Major Jr. A leagues and other related sports programs attended in a bid to assess the players they feel are most likely to move on in the hockey ranks. The Eastern Ontariobased CCHL features fast, entertaining hockey. I have been following and promoting the league for many years now and the only negative in my opinion is the lack of coverage the league receives from the

daily media in the region. Admittedly in the midst of the fast changing internet era the mainstream media has taken a big hit. Contraction across the board means the media's ability to cover many things, including amateur sports, has suffered badly. Junior hockey, including Jr. A and Jr. B leagues, don't receive the regular coverage they once did. A good case in point is the recent Junior Club World Cup which was played in Sochi, Russia Aug. 18 to 26. An all-star team from the CCHL had the honour of representing Canada in the eight-team event played in the same facilities as the 2014 Winter Olympics. The CCHL squad, nicknamed the Ottawa Capitals for the purposes of the competition, won third place bronze medals for Canada with a thrilling 2-1 shootout win over Red Bull Salzburg of Austria. The 22-member squad included seven members of the perennial CCHL finalist Carleton Place Canadians. In fact it was Carleton Place players who scored the key goals in the bronze medal game. I didn't read or hear anything about the tournament in the daily media, either before, during or after the competition. And I was looking and listening. I think that's particularly sad considering the size of the growing Ottawa and Eastern Ontario market! Fortunately the community media, including this newspaper, did cover the tournament and they also follow the CCHL and other local sports throughout the season. All of that aside, loyal fans of the league and readers have asked me how the CCHL shapes up this season.

self a favour and attend a league game in your community or your area. I think that, like me, you'll very quickly be hooked. The league features fast, high intensity hockey played by young, skilled players. Fighting, the scourge of the sport is virtually unheard of in this league. Many athletes from the CCHL go on to long careers in the NHL or other professional leagues. The objective of most CCHL athletes is to play well enough to earn a scholarship to a major American university or college. Every season the league graduates dozens of players to American schools where they can successfully combine academics and hockey. The best of the best go on to play

HARD TO BELIEVE BUT HOCKEY SEASON UNDERWAY

professional hockey but, with a university or college degree in hand, they are also ready for life after hockey. To me, that's what makes Jr. A hockey in Canada and the United States (there are 10 leagues across the continent) particularly interesting and important. Fans have the opportunity to enjoy the game at a high level and at the same time support leagues which are heavily focused on education, building character and helping provide a future for players. Worthy goals in my opinion!

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
