Kingston Heritage - A proposed special events policy for Kingston has been temporarily shelved by city council amid concerns that some groups may be excluded from getting permits to gather on municipal property. “I think it excludes too many opportunities for community activities,” said Coun. Bill Glover. The proposed policy, unveiled to council Feb. 4, aims to create uniform rules to grant permits to groups - ranging from large profit-driven organizations to small neighbourhood clubs - that want to hold a festival or event that occupies a street, building, park, sports field or other civic venue. But critics fear some groups may be denied a permit because they either won’t qualify or can’t afford to comply with the new guidelines. The actual permit fees will vary depending on the nature of the activity. However, standard insurance is a big concern since the city typically requires groups to have at least $2 million in liability coverage. “I would hate for us to lose any of those events,” said Coun. Jim Neill. He says there are many community groups that hold events on municipal property, but operate on a shoestring budget and can’t afford the city’s insurance rules. However, city officials stressed the policy is not meant to regulate, or charge money for, informal public gatherings. Instead, they say it’s aimed at those Heritage Events - Lisa Janssen and her three-year-old daughter Mia explored the ice slide in Con- groups that want “exclusive” permission to hold

a parade, fundraiser, craft sale, sports show or other event on city property. “This policy is not made to govern all public gatherings,” explained Commissioner Lanie Hurdle. City lawyer Alan MacLeod agrees it may be hard to distinguish which type of event requires a permit and which one doesn’t. But he says the proposed policy includes a mechanism to “invite that analysis.” As far as affording insurance coverage, MacLeod advised council that city officials will be able to calculate the liability risk for each event, such as a review of whether the group has hosted past events, the nature of the activity and the location, and then determine the amount of coverage that may be needed. The draft policy also lays out standard guidelines to prioritize special event permits. Preference will be given to events with: significant municipal importance, historic events in good standing, partnerships with the city, notfor-profit organizations, a number of participants, and those that support the city’s sustainability policies. The policy was drafted by the arts, recreation and community policies committee before it was presented to council. Mayor Mark Gerretsen expressed surprise that many of the same councillors who serve on the committee didn’t voice their concerns before the policy came to the council table. Council voted 9-3 to send the policy back to the drawing board at the committee level to revisit some of the fairness issues that have been raised.

West coast crooner passes through Kingston Reporter

Heritage News - David Ward, an experimental musician hailing from Vancouver, doesn’t believe in labels. “You don’t really want to put too many motors on your own music,” says Ward. Even still, critics trying to classify his albums have called it funk, R&B and even operatic. He’s often compared to the likes of Thom Yorke and Jeff Buckley. “I guess if I had to say, I’d call it alt-rock and soul,” Ward concedes. On Feb. 7, Ward played an intimate concert at the Sleepless Goat as part of his Golden Future Time tour. Golden Future Time, his latest album, was released on Jan. 28. “I was really specific about this project,” Ward says of the record. “It’s really about loss, and about the need for big ideas, like hope and fear.” Ward was very excited about his engagement at the Goat. “I’m so glad it’s a small venue,” he says. “The thing about doing a solo show is that you just strip it back so far. It creates a deeper connection.” The Kingston show was one of the final stops in the tour, which has taken him across Canada and the UK. Ward says, “The travel has been really amazing.” Except for a few hiccups in Eastern Ontario: “I can’t believe all the snow!” he laughs, referring to the blizzard that stalled his travel to Ottawa last Wednesday. “It was like the zombie apocalypse.” Blizzard or not, Ward was busy with lots of engagements while in town. In addition to publicity for his tour, he is also working on a documentary about the independent music scene with Vancouver-

started doing little video clips with artists, sort of a ‘Spotlight On,’” says Ward. “We started to realize that all the topics—all the joys and triumphs—needed a lot more time and attention than just a two minute clip.” Since its inception, the documentary film has involved interviews with dozens of musicians, record executives, promoters, audience members and more. George Stroumboulopoulos, for instance, was one participant. “It’s really about all people at all levels of the music industry,” Ward goes on. “We’ve had a lot of luck, and even a few big names.” Ward wraps his tour up on March 1 with a hometown album release party in Vancouver. “We only have so much time,” he explains. “We’re working on those last few interviews, really just sort of refining it now.” Ward says that he and his film partner Jeanette Wilkinson are looking to start editing the video in the spring and summer. “Then we’ll do the film festival circuit, and a few musical festivals as well.” Ward believes that his tour and documentary have been learning experiences in many ways. “I’ve just realized a million things,” he says. “Community has always been important to me, but I can really see now the way music creates it. Listening to the radio, going into the record store, turning people on to new things: these moments bring people together. But the mystery just gets deeper.” David Ward is pre-selling Golden Future Time in order to amass the funds for vinyl production. “I really like the romanticism of vinyl,” he admits.

Easter Seals kicks off telethon campaign 1:45 PM

It is the vacation

By Mandy Marciniak

mmarciniak@theheritageemc.ca

Heritage News – For many kids, attending summer camp is a tradition they have the good fortune to take for granted. But for kids with physical disabilities, summer camp is a little more difficult. That’s where Easter Seals comes in. The organization has been working hard since 1922 to provide accessible camp experiences for kids in need and through donations from the community they are able to do so each year. “Presently, there are 221 children in our region being supported by Easter Seals,” said Rene Marchen, Rotarian and a member of the annual Easter Seals Telethon Committee. “Their families face incredible personal sacrifice and tremendous financial burden. We work to ensure that these families have somewhere to turn for help and we help their children get the equipment they need so they can enjoy the freedom to be kids.” This year, Easter Seals in Southeastern Ontario will celebrate its 31st annual telethon on Sunday, April 13. The telethon is the organization’s main fundraiser and this year they hope to raise $215,000. “This is a large goal, but with our track record, as a community, we know that we can achieve and even exceed this goal,” added Marchen. To kick-off the fundraising season, Easter Seals hosted a lunch on Feb. 6 and invited a few ambassa-

dors for the organization to come and speak about their experiences. One of these ambassadors was 10year-old Keirra MacLeod, who spoke of her experiences at the Easters Seals’ Camp Merrywood. “I like being an Easter Seals kid, it is great because they give children a chance to experience things that are hard for them to do on their own,” said MacLeod, who explained her fear of swimming before attending camp. “I’ve gone to camp twice so far. The first year I went, I had a lot of fun and met my boyfriend, Brock, and in my second year I learned not to be afraid of water and I even jumped off a cliff and went whitewater rafting. I would have never experienced any of that without Easter Seals.” McLeod also went on to explain how Easter Seals has helped her family with financial burdens and thanked everyone in the room for supporting the organization and donating. “The long-standing support from this community has helped enable Easter Seals to continue to offer programs that allow kids to experience freedom, independence and a sense of accomplishment,” added Marchen. These sentiments were echoed by 17-year-old high school senior Chad Lees who also spoke of his experiences as an Easter Seals kid. “I’ve benefited from both the camp experiences and financial assistance,” said Lees. “Summers at

City honours responders & rescuers in aftermath of midtown inferno By Bill Hutchins Reporter

Kingston Heritage – Fire fighters, military rescuers, public works and community agencies were treated to a hero’s welcome at Kingston City Hall. Hundreds of people gathered in Memorial Hall Feb. 4 as the city hosted a community reception for the hundreds of emergency response personnel involved in battling the midtown inferno nearly two months ago. No lives were lost in the Dec. 17 apartment construction site blaze at Princess and Victoria Streets, which became the focus of national and international media coverage during the massive fire and the dramatic rescue of a trapped crane operator. The mayor handed out two Keys to the City and 18 certificates of appreciation to various agencies and emergency groups as a gesture of appreciation. “That was the whole point - to show it involved a lot of different people and organizations. The whole community came together,” said Mayor Mark Gerretsen. Among those honoured for the roles they played during and after the inferno; United Way, Public Health, CUPE 109 (city hall’s biggest union), Kingston Professional Fire Fighters Association and the Ambassador Hotel. “It’s nice to see recognition. It’s overwhelming,” said Donald Corbett, deputy chief of Kingston Fire & Rescue. “It was quite the ordeal that day,” he recalled. “I have to say the community came together and the emergency services came together as a team – fire, police, ambulance as well as our counterparts in the military. It could have been quite devastating. Fortunately there were only minor injuries.”

Corbett also praised the mutual aid response that saw more than 100 out-of-town fire fighters flood into the city to provide back-up support in the fire halls while 110 Kingston fire crews were on scene battling the blaze. “We had an additional 22 calls that day while this fire was going on. Vehicle accidents, medical calls, things like that,” he noted. It was a sea of uniforms during the 6-8pm reception and presentations in Memorial Hall. Appreciation books were also set up so visitors could write down their thoughts to the emergency responders. “Extraordinary job. Thank you so much,” said one well wisher. “Thank you for making things come together,” wrote another. The books will be given to each group on behalf of the community to share with their teams. The mayor also handed out two symbolic Keys to the City at the start of that night’s council meet-

There’s

ing. One Key went to Matt Henderson, an apprentice electrician, who used a construction boom lift to rescue two trapped co-workers from the fifth floor of the wood-framed building as the flames closed in. “The fire was going at that point. The whole corner of the building was engulfed.” Henderson says he didn’t have much time to think about the danger. “It wasn’t anything but, yeah, I’m kind of putting myself in harm’s way. But let’s get them out of the building.” He says the rescue took about 10 minutes, and the last few feet were harrowing. The hydraulic lines of the lift froze on the way down forcing Henderson and the two rescued workers to jump 10 feet to the ground to escape the fast moving fire. Henderson’s little-known act of bravery did not get media attention

at the time, and the shy worker says that’s what he preferred. Still, he was humbled to receive one of the city’s highest honours. “It’s definitely a nice gesture. For about a month I tried to stay out of the limelight. I’m used to being behind the scenes,” he told the Kingston Heritage. Henderson plans to return to the construction site as the five storey building rises once again. The other Key went to five men who led the high-profile military helicopter rescue of a trapped crane operator. All five are members of the 8 Wing/CFB Trenton 424 “Tiger” Transport and Rescue Squadron: Capt. David Agnew, Capt. Jean-Benoit Girard-Beauseigle, Cpl. Iain Cleaton, Sgt. Cory Cisyk and MCpl. Matthew Davidson. “We are definitely trained for (rescues at) cliffs, mountains, over water, over boats, forests – almost any possible conditions. But a crane

in Kingston?” said Capt. GirardBeauseigle, who is the first officer and co-pilot of the chopper team. He says the team didn’t get much information as it scrambled from its base in Trenton to reach the fire scene in the heart of Kingston, only that a crane operator was trapped. The desperate man was perched at the end of the crane’s boom, about 150 feet above ground, and heat from inferno below was burning him. He was plucked to safety and the chopper arrived on the landing pad at Kingston General Hospital about one minute later. Images of the dramatic rescue were shown around the world. Capt. Girard-Beauseigle, who just became a SAR (Search & Rescue) pilot last October, praised the teamwork of those in the air and on the ground as he returned to the spotlight once again. “I’m pleased to be here with all the people who participated.”

Memories of the Inferno: Air and ground rescuers tell their stories Bill Hutchins

City Reporter editorial@theheritageemc.ca

Kingston Heritage Editorial – Cory Cisyk tried to tell his girlfriend what type of day he had at work, but the phone wouldn’t stop ringing. A few hours earlier, the military sergeant with the “Tiger” Search & Rescue (SAR) 424 Squadron out of CFB Trenton was doing something he’d never done before: rescuing a

man from a crane towering over a major construction site fire on Princess Street. Kingston’s midtown inferno broke out Dec. 17 and news of the looming disaster quickly spread around the country. Construction workers managed to scramble out of the building except for the crane operator. Normally, such a rescue attempt would fall to fire fighters. But this time, crews on the ground couldn’t reach the trapped victim. He was too far up for their ladders. “The boom of the crane itself is about 150 feet up. Our ladder truck is designed for 110 feet,” said Kingston deputy fire chief Donald

Corbett. The 40-foot gap was the difference between life and death for the hapless crane operator who, by then, was running out of room and time as the inferno raged beneath him with 1,000 degree heat singing his body. Cue the military. The SAR team was called into action in what became one of the most photographed and celebrated Canadian rescues in recent memory. Sgt. Cisyk was the man dangling out of the military chopper grabbing for the crane operator – an image broadcast around the world. “I’ve done many hoist missions.

But over a fire was a first for me,” he recalled during a civic ceremony at Kingston City Hall to honour the emergency responders, rescuers and community support agencies. “We didn’t know anything about the (crane’s) structural integrity. We heard spot reports but we didn’t really know. We tried to get there as fast as possible and do the rescue as safely as possible,” he said. The ‘We’ includes his four SAR comrades, also honoured for their courage over fire: Captain David Agnew, Captain Jean-Benoit Girard-Beauseigle, Corporal Iain Cleaton and Master Corporal Matthew Davidson.

6 The Kingston EMC - Thursday, February 13, 2014

They were given a symbolic ‘Key to the City’ by Mayor Mark Gerretsen. Another Key went to Matt Henderson, a reluctant hero who shunned the spotlight in the days and weeks that followed. As an apprentice electrician, Henderson was working in the wood-framed building when the fire erupted, the cause still not made public. “I got a cell phone call from my boss telling me to get out. I didn’t see the fire until I got out of the building.” It wasn’t until Henderson reached the ground that he realized the extent of the fast moving fire, and heard two co-workers yelling from the fifth floor that they were trapped. Henderson, also trained to operate the on-site hydraulic lift, quickly used it to reach the men, and lower them to safety just moments before the building was fully engulfed. Both the soldiers and the electrician say they are honoured and humbled to be recognized, and noted the team effort it took to avoid fatalities. Ann Bryan, president of the Kingston Professional Fire Fighters Association, summed up the mood of the nearly 20 agencies and individuals to be honoured by the city exactly seven weeks to the day after the fire. “Sometimes it’s hard to take that appreciation because we’re doing our job. But we’re certainly very grateful for the recognition from the city and the recognition for all the other agencies. This was one of those ‘It takes a village’ moments.” All kept their cool as the fire reached incredible temperatures, melting cars and nearby homes. Henderson’s own car was destroyed by the intense heat, and he lost most of his tools that day as well. A total personal loss of more than $12,000. Though still battling with his insurance company, Henderson says the knowledge of saving lives makes up for it. And Sgt. Cisyk says he did what he was trained to do – even though such military-style urban rescues are rare. “There’s nothing you can say except ‘Thank You.’ There’s a whole unit at 424 that would all be willing to do it.” Yes, there remain many displaced residents in the fire’s aftermath, but the personal stories of courage and sacrifice turned this devastating event into a community triumph of teamwork, perseverance and caring.


OH WHAT A NIGHT! comes to Kingston mmarciniak@theheritageemc.ca

Heritage Events – It takes a lot to become a musical legend, but you can’t argue that Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons have reached that level. With multiple number one hits throughout the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s, the four-part harmony group sang catchy tunes that still resonate today. Now, you can hear and see all of these songs performed in a new live show. OH WHAT A NIGHT! A Musical Tribute to Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons is coming to Kingston in March and one of the stars of the show, Rick Wojnowski, is sure that the show, and its

unique format, will please all audiences. “The writer and producer/director had originally put it together as a show about a guy that sang Frankie Valli songs with three guys backing him up, but after we got into rehearsals, it really became obvious that it could be more collaborative,” explained Wojnowski. “They decided to get each of us to take a song and spread the wealth and it turned into something far better than they had originally planned. It makes it far more receivable for the audience because each guy gets a chance to shine.” The actors in the show aren’t playing roles, they are performing as themselves in tribute to Frankie Valli and The

Four Seasons, a concept that makes the show very different from another recent Frankie Valli show called Jersey Boys. “I think that makes it fresh and more interesting. It is someone paying tribute instead of pretending to be that person,” added Wojnowski. “It is an all around feel good show. There is a lot of comedy and it is non-stop action and our choreographer has done a great job in getting us to move around on stage.” The show also shows the full musical catalogue of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, an aspect that Wojnowski enjoyed, especially as a fan of the group growing up. “Because of my age, I’m 47, a lot of

the disco stuff was really influential on me. I loved “Who Loves You” and my favorite was always “My Eyes Adored You” which I get to perform in the show. I actually sing that song to the same girl every night because I remember having a crush on this girl when I was younger and that song was popular and every time I sing that song I see her. It is really memorable music and the melodies are timeless.” The show will certainly bring back a lot of memories for fans, but it also brings in new fans as well. Wojnowski is always surprised to see how kids react to the show, especially considering it is probably their first time hearing the songs. “We get kids lining up to buy the CD after the show. They aren’t even familiar with the music, but after the show they want to hear it again. They can understand

the lyrics and the melodies are really fun. I don’t know what it is about four-part harmony, but people really love it.” The show has been touring around the world for the past five years and has seen great success. This spring it will tour Canada and Wojnowski encourages people to come check it out. “People will leave this show with a smile, it doesn’t matter what happened during the day, you will leave the show with a smile on your face. The show is fun, exciting, it is some of the best music you will ever hear and I encourage people to come check it out, they will not be disappointed.” OH WHAT A NIGHT!

In Our Opinion

The Sochi dilemma

On mother-daughter smoothie dates and getting through life as a dork Hollie Pratt-Campbell Ast. Editor

@hollieprattcamp

Heritage Editorial - Summer and I have this lovely tradition we’ve developed to try and beat the winter blues. A couple of times a week, I’ll pick her up early from daycare and we’ll head over to the mall for a smoothie. While it’s no substitute for the outdoors, the mall provides an expansive space for her to run around and get her beans out when it’s too cold or icy to spend time outside; and, as we all know too well, this has been the case for the majority of the winter. It’s something I look forward to on a blah Monday or freezing-beyondbelief Wednesday and Summer loves it, too. “Mall, smoodie, funâ€? she always says when we pull into the parking lot. Last Monday, we entered the mall as usual and were heading over to the smoothie stand. I held Summer’s hand as she ran along excitedly. A woman in her 60s was walking in our direction. She smiled at Summer and nodded. I smiled back and said hello. “Look, you’ve got her boots on the wrong feet,â€? the woman said to me, gesturing at Summer. “Why don’t you switch them around, that way she can walk properly.â€? “Right‌â€? I said, as the gamut of

negative human emotions ran through my brain all at once: “Ummmm - who the hell is this woman to question my ability to dress my child? Obviously, she’s implying that I’m unfit to be a mother if I can’t even figure out which boot goes on which foot. Then again, maybe I am unfit to be a mother. I’m lucky if I can get my own boots on the right feet. Dorks like me shouldn’t even be breeding and this woman can tell what kind of person I am just by looking at me. Wait – did she just criticize the way Summer walks? How dare she? There’s absolutely nothing wrong with the way Summer walks. Maybe I should tell her she should go get some Botox, that way her face won’t look like a dried up old prune. Yeah, that’s what I’ll say.� Of course, I didn’t say that. But I did turn around and give the woman a dirty look as she walked away before hanging my head and shamefully switching up Summer’s boots. Did I overreact to this woman’s comment? Yes, probably. And the weird thing is, if she had been my mother or my aunt or even a friend I probably wouldn’t have given her advice a second thought. “Oh yeah, you’re right, thanks,� I would have said as I proceeded to fix the problem. Something about a complete stranger barging into my life to judge my mothering ability at a single glance just struck me as extremely off-putting. I’ve written before about my how

it’s been hard for me to find confidence as a mother. Sometimes I feel like I’m alone in this struggle, as every other mom I know seems to have things a lot more together than I do. Unlike me, they would never leave the house with their baby for the day and forget to bring a sippy cup or diapers or a change of clothes. Their babies’ mittens always seem so securely fastened to their hands – unlike Summer’s, which routinely fall off at the worst possible times. Or maybe this feeling of incompetence is universal and I’m just more honest about it than most. In case you can’t tell, I have trouble being anything other than brutally honest when it comes to my emotions. The worst part is, whenever I’m feeling pretty good about how things are going in the motherhood department, it seems like something comes along to shatter this confidence into a million pieces. Sure, taking your little one on fun outings to the mall for smoothies is a sure sign of a good parent, but is all that undone if you can’t even handle a simple task like dressing her? In the end, I don’t think so. Like I said, I’m lucky if I can get my own shoes on the right feet or line the buttons up properly on my blouses, and it’s not like I’m failing at life or anything. I’m surviving and thriving as a dork, and so too will Summer survive and thrive with a dorky – but very loving – mother.

8 The Kingston EMC - Thursday, February 13, 2014

Heritage Editorial - After much debate, boycotting and controversy, the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi have arrived. The controversy started early with the anti-gay laws that were put in place in Russia, but that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the end of the story. Sochi continued to make headlines last week in reference to over- spending. This is, reportedly, the most expensive Olympic Games ever with a reported $51 billion being spent on infrastructure. Then as media and athletes arrived in Sochi last week, there were reports of unfinished stadiums, hotels and even streets. Top all of that off with what many have described as over-the-top security measures, and Sochi doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly seem like the most welcoming Olympic host. With all of this negative attention from the media, it is hard to focus on what the Olympics are really about â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the athletes. Many have said that they will not be watching the games because of the controversy, but is that really the solution? It seems like every city that hosts the Olympics has some sort of controversy. In Beijing there were issues about security and silencing opinions from around the world. In Vancouver there were issues with weather, security (who can forget the fenced in Torch?) and a few technical difficulties. In London there were issues with social media and drug use. While all of these controversies should not be ignored and we certainly arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t trying to downplay the appalling things that are happening in terms of gay rights in Russia, we need to acknowledge the hard work and effort that the athletes have put into these games. In the end, they are the ones who have spent their entire lives preparing for these moments and they should not be clouded with controversy due to things they have no control over. They didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask to compete in Russia and they certainly didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know that the situation would turn out like this, but they are trying to make the best of it and we, as viewers, should too. Canada is expected to do very well this year and we are definitely one of the favorites going into the games. If all of the reports are true, our athletes will dominate these games just as they did in Vancouver. So why not support them and ignore Russia? Share in the glory and listen to the stories. Support the athletes, and enjoy watching the Olympics.

OUT STANDING IN OUR FIELD

Aric McBay

Forgive me, reader: in a few paragraphs I am going to lie to you. But it’s for a good cause. By Aric McBay Columnist

Out Standing in our Field - I live on a mixed family farm on Howe Island with a vegetable operation that feeds 150 families and a dairy herd. We have a small flock of laying hens and (depending on the season) meat chickens, ducks and lambs. The mixed family farm looks a bit like the popular image of a farm, Old MacDonald style, though it isn’t very common right now. When I meet people—especially people who aren’t farmers— they have a lot of questions about

how things actually work for us. There’s a get-to-know-you game called “two truths and a lie.” It works like this: one person makes three statements about themselves, one of which is false. Their audience tries to guess which of the statements are real. So here are two truths and a lie about our farm in the winter. A) The water pipes in the barn are liable to freeze. B) Everyone gets to lay back relax for four months. C) We grow winter greens in our greenhouse. Did you guess? The lie, of course,

is B. Winter (despite the fact that snow covers the field and there are no crops there to tend) does not offer much of a break for most farmers. Let me explain. Winter means very different things for different parts of the farm. For my partner, Emily, who runs the vegetable enterprise, winter does mean a slowing of pace. When a hard frost comes around the beginning of November, the 22week harvest season ends and the gardens are put to bed. Emily’s 60 hour work week reverts to a more reasonable 20 to 30 hour work

week. Emily cleans up after the harvest season, tallies survey results from our members (direct customers) and does her bookkeeping. We plant some greenhouse crops and tend to stored root vegetables, work on indoor construction projects and generally try to catch up on anything that fell behind in the summer. By the time the new year rolls around, Emily is already hard at work organizing for the next growing season. She creates her new production plan and budget. She plots out the crops will be planted in each garden bed. She scours a

desk full of seed catalogs and orders new varieties. She hires new staff. By February she is back to working 30 or 40 hours a week, a number that continues to increase as spring approaches. The situation in the dairy barn is much different. Rather than feeding themselves on pasture, the cows need to be fed baled hay that was cut in summer. The milking and everything else dairy cows need still happen in the winter, but chores are done in freezing temperatures, ice, and snow. As Emily’s father, Peter, is fond of pointing out, the harvest season for milk for dairy farmers never ends. It wasn’t always that way. A hundred years ago, limited access to tractors meant that feeding cows hay over the winter was even more challenging. So dairy farmers reduced production once they snow began to fly, which cut down on labour and feed requirements. This meant less fresh milk was available for sale, so preserved dairy products like cheese and butter were very important. These were produced locally and in large quantity in the summer months; a century ago there were several cheese factories on Howe and Wolfe Islands, which is where much of the summer’s milk production went. Two or three centuries earlier, the difference between summer and winter for farmers was even more dramatic. Farmers in the colder parts of Europe, like the French Alps, would more or less shut things down over the winter. Once they had collected their harvest they would slaughter many of the animals so they wouldn’t need to feed them over the winter, a main reason why we still have a tradition of feasting near the beginning of winter on holidays like Christmas and Thanksgiving. With limited food supplies and limited artificial light, they spent as much time as they could resting and sleeping, waiting out the long winter nights and trying not to spend unnecessary energy. The winter workload of vegetable farming does offer us some time for rest and reflection. It’s rare these days to have an occupation that offers some time to step back and truly consider how you are doing things, what went well and what could be improved before jumping back into the fray. It’s invaluable; it’s just not as much of a break as some people assume. Aric McBay is a farmer and author. He lives and works at an organic farm on Howe Island.

Learning to â&#x20AC;&#x153;birth from withinâ&#x20AC;? and explore the power of the mind-body connection Reporter

@hollieprattcamp

Heritage Editorial â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Following the difficult birth of my own daughter, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m an admitted skeptic when it comes to claims that the process of birthing a baby can be a beautiful, spiritual experience. Still, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m always interested to meet people with a different, more positive perspective on this subject and hear what they have to say, perhaps because I yearn to believe that they are rule and I am the exception. Fourteen years ago, Jennifer Gargaro, then a new massage therapist fresh out of school, attended the birth of a friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s baby. For her, the experience was lifechanging. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably one of the most beautiful things Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever seen,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Immediately after, I was trained as a doula.â&#x20AC;? Later, one of Gargaroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clients introduced her to the book Birthing from Within by Pam England. The book and its corresponding prenatal classes equip pregnant women and their partners with powerful mind-body techniques in order to cope as well as possible with the pain of labour. According to Birthing from Within philosophy, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the essence of childbirth preparation is self-discovery, not assimilating  obstetric information.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I fell in love with it,â&#x20AC;? Gargaro says of the book. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted to do the training then and there, but it took me about 10 years to actually get it started.â&#x20AC;? Two years ago, she began to offer Birthing from Within classes in Kingston, using her massage therapist training as a means of enhancing the experience for clients. On her website, Gargaro explains that her clients will learn â&#x20AC;&#x153;a variety of pain-coping techniques, which will help you cultivate the power of mindfulness, meditation and self-hypnosis. In addition to visualizations and learning age old practices from wisdom traditions, you will explore the wise use of drugs and epidurals should they become necessary.â&#x20AC;? In order to best explain to me how she works â&#x20AC;&#x201C; both as a massage therapist and Birthing from Within instructor -

ners, who too often feel pushed to the side. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are tangible ways that dads and other mothers can support mom and actually make a difference in the way she births. So for me itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about creating a team-like atmosphere and making sure youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on the same page and that the supportive partner knows exactly what mom does like and what works for her, because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be different from what works for them.â&#x20AC;? Following the birth, Gargaro also offers postpartum home visits, where she performs massage and assists families in settling into their new life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As in birth, a shattering occurs of the woman and afterwards itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about picking up those pieces and putting them back together again,â&#x20AC;? she explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The problem is that they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go back together the same way. So the massage is geared towards how we can help mother collect just a few of those pieces after theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been shattered, to set them on a track where they feel a little more confident.â&#x20AC;? Gargaro notes that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pleasure to be able to help young families along this journey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once your baby is born, so too are you, the parents, born. The transformation process of the family and the integration of that is what feeds my soul.â&#x20AC;? As for me, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure yet if I will have another child. All the same, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comforting to meet and chat with with people like Gargaro, who are able to view the birth process in such a positive light. If I ever do become pregnant again, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll know who to call. Gargaroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next Birthing from Within sessions begins March 18 at the Community Midwives of Kingston building.

Gargaro offered to give me a massage. Still somewhat skeptical, but never one to turn down a free massage, I agreed. The experience was unlike any massage Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever had. Gargaro focused on creating more space in my body by realigning the connective tissues around my neck and vertebrae that had moved out of place. The whole way through, we communicated. She would press down on a spot and tell me to focus on relaxing that area, and see in my mindâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eye the little â&#x20AC;&#x153;dorsal finâ&#x20AC;?-like features of the spine, etc. moving back into place. Gradually, the pressure would start to decrease in each respective spot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Are you releasing pressure?â&#x20AC;? I asked Gargaro, but she assured me she was not; the release I was felt was due to space being created in my body. The experience was very emotional and sometimes painful, but by the end I felt light and free, as though a huge weight had been lifted from my shoulders. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In massage, I project other images,â&#x20AC;? Gargaro said to me afterwards, explaining that visualizing the physical change happening in my mind allowed my body to follow suit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And in birth, again, howw do we remove our mind from what our bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work is meant to do? Sometimes an image can come up that can help with that. Even though the body feels so uncomfortable, so painfulâ&#x20AC;Śif we are able to hold that image in our mind while our body has its little freakout and feels really awful, we will be taking the mind out of the picture so our bodies then can open up.â&#x20AC;? In Birthing from Within, the trancelike state a woman enters when in labour is referred to as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Labourlandâ&#x20AC;?. The goal is for the pregnant woman and her partner to learn how to maintain this â&#x20AC;&#x153;primitiveâ&#x20AC;? state throughout the birthing process in order to allow the body to do what it needs to do.2:41 AM You would tell them â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are about pulled out of that right side, your heart condition primitive brain into left side, logic and yourthe medication. brain when we are asked questions or are asked to make decisions,â&#x20AC;? Gargaro 2:59 AM explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;OnceButthat switch happens youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still back into that leftunconscious. side logical brain, we can really slow labour or stall labour. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t progress. So creating that rightsided brain focus or intention is imperative through birth.â&#x20AC;? She emphasizes that her classes also focus quite a bit on the role of birth part-

Glanmore restored to its early glory Heritage Lifestyle –Over many years, Glanmore National Historic Site has renovated its 10,000 squarefoot home in Belleville. From Feb. 17 to 21, Glanmore will celebrate Heritage Week with a Restoration Retrospective. The museum will be open from 1 - 4:30 p.m. with guided tours daily at 2 p.m. The home, built in 1883, still contains furniture belonging to the original owners, John and Harriett Phillips, whose descendants lived in the home until 1971 when the City of Belleville purchased the property. It now operates as a museum. Several areas of the home have been restored to their original glory and appearance. “The latest thing we’ve been working on is the restoration of the breakfast room,” said Melissa Wakeling, Education and Marketing Coordinator for Glanmore. “The paint is still drying as we talk. The breakfast room was wallpapered, so we had to identify the orginal colors. The conservation consultant involved was Ian Hodkinson, Professor Emeritus from Queen’s University.” Wakeling explained that Hodkinson identified 11 layers of paint and wallpaper and determined the original wall color. “We discovered a picture rail in that room when we removed the wallpaper,” said Wakeling. “It looks dramatically different now. We’ve

gone from floral to a soft caramel color and there are two colors on the ceiling.” Before the wallpaper removal, the ceiling of the breakfast room was consolidated by injecting resin into the lath and plaster. “We repaired a big section of the ornamental cornice,” said Wakeling. “Some elaborate plaster had fallen and we reproduced that and reinstalled it.” Restorations have been ongoing since the museum opened in the 1970s, but the past five or six years have seen the bulk of the work completed. When you visit Glanmore, you can’t rush through. The house is idiosyncratic in many ways and each room takes time to explore. I remember being awe-struck the first time I visited several years ago. As you enter the grand mansion, the first thing you’ll see is an impressive suspended central column staircase – with no visible means of support. Wakeling explained that the invisible support is provided by large beams, running at an angle, encased in the stairs. Another oddity for a home from this era is the indoor bathroom, complete with a tub, sink and toilet, one of the first in Belleville. Glanmore National Historic Site is the home of some spectacular col-

lections. Glanmore is the permanent site of the Couldery Collection of European antiques, which consists of furniture, porcelain, fine art and decorative art. The Couldery’s were a well-to-do British family who visited Belleville in the 1880s. They loved it so much they chose it as the location for their summer home. When they returned to England, they took Anne Docter, the

daughter of their Belleville escorts, with them. Docter stayed in England. After the death of the last Couldery, Bertram, in 1911, Docter inherited the Couldery belongings. In 1955 Docter donated the Couldery Collection to the City of Belleville. Most of the objects on display in Glanmore are from this collection. The home is also host to the Sir MacKenzie Bowell Collection, do-

nated to Glanmore in 2005. Bowell, from Belleville, was Canada’s fifth prime minister (1894-1896). The pristine porcelain dinner service in Glanmore’s dining room was a gift from Queen Victoria to Bowell upon his retirement from political life. The set is decorated in a late 19th century Art Nouveau style. Continued on page 14

Wakeling said. I find one of the most interesting areas of the home to be the basement, where you’ll see an exhibit that details the history of servants of the era. There’s a 19th century iron, sewing and cleaning equipment, uniforms and a history of the role of the servant. On one wall you’ll see a speaking tube, an early form of communication between the home’s many rooms. “Most people who visit relate more to the servants than the Phillips,” said Wakeling. “Most of us have to prepare meals, do laundry and keep house just like the servants of that day.” During the March Break, caregivers and kids can take part in March Break Magic at Glanmore. “They’ll work as a team,” said Wakeling. “They work together to find artifacts. It’s a challenge looking for different objects. The home can be overwhelming and this allows them to focus and scan for one thing.” Children will also be taught to make a simple craft and to do a magic trick. “They’ll be able to perform it if they’d like,” said Wakeling. She noted that during March Break Magic, the winter hours will be extended

and the home will be open from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Then, on Mother’s Day, you can treat your favorite mom to a special treat. “People can expect a spectacular afternoon,” said Wakeling. “There will be a full-tiered tea service with sandwiches, scones, homemade jams and sweets followed by a cup of tea and then a guided tour.” There’s a caution. This is the second year this Mother’s Day Tea will be offered. Last year, the event sold out quickly. Tickets go on sale on February 28. The Mother’s Day Tea tickets are $25. Glanmore is located at 257 Bridge Street East, Belleville. To get there, take Highway 401 west from Kingston to exit 543, highway 62 at Belleville. Drive south into Belleville. After you cross the bridge over the Moira River, turn left onto Bridge Street East. Admission: $6 for adults; $5 for students and seniors; $3.50 for children 5 to 12 years of age.

Market Scare: Kingston to play cameo role in gothic horror movie this spring Reporter

Kingston Heritage – Calling all extras! A slice of Hollywood is coming to Kingston in April, and the producers are looking for hundreds of local extras to be part of the cast. Scenes of the major motion picture, Crimson Peak, directed and co-written by Guillermo del Toro, are scheduled to be filmed around Kingston’s historic Market Square on Monday, April 7. A Toronto-based casting company says the daylong film shoot will require about 300 adult extras - 210 men and 90 women - ranging from 18 to 85 years old. Mayor Mark Gerretsen says given the abundance of 19th century buildings, Kingston seems a natural choice as a backdrop for the movie. “I think that’s great. Kingston has a lot to offer in terms of the rich Victorian architecture that we have here, especially in our downtown area. I’m actually surprised it’s not utilized more often.” The gothic horror story, set in early 1900s England, stars Charlie Hunnam, Tim Hiddleston and Jessica Chastain. Filming begins this month in Toronto. Crimson Peak, which is being shot under the working title of Haunted Peak, is about an author who discovers her husband is not who he appears to be, according to various internet movie sites. Word of the local casting call began to surface a month ago. Since then, the production team says it has received an “immense amount of interest.” “This is a period piece set in the early 1900s. There are specific hair and costume requirements for background performers that casting needs to adhere to,” according to a statement from the casting department. Among the requirements for would-be extras: -you must be completely available on April 7 in order to apply, -a typical shoot day is 12 to 16 hours,

-for women, the ideal dress size is 8 and smaller, while the ideal chest size for men is 42” and no taller than 6’1”, -no visible tattoos, piercings or buzz cuts, -extra work pays $11.50 an hour. It’s not the first time Kingston’s heritage architecture and picturesque landscape has attracted the attention of filmmakers. In 2013, an episode of the television series Nikita was filmed around Market Square. Prior to that, Market Square figured prominently in the 1999 film, Vendetta, starring Christopher Walken. But, given the long period of inactivity, the mayor would like to see Kingston play a more active role in films. “Honestly, I think it’s one of those things that we just kind of waited for them to call. Perhaps we should be looking at a way that we could be trying to engage them (producers).” The casting department is very specific about scouting extras: “Please email a current and clear picture of yourself (no sunglasses, hats, etc). Please DO NOT email a professional picture. The picture should be straight on with a natural expression (no smile) and not taken from a side angle or from above.

16 The Kingston EMC - Thursday, February 13, 2014

How? By taking action to reduce the risk factors that are within your control. That means factors like high blood pressure, eating an unhealthy diet, being physically inactive, smoking or being overweight. Nine out of Ten people have at least one risk factor and 40% have three or more. The Heart and Stroke Foundation website (www.heartandstroke.ca <http://www. heartandstroke.ca> ) is full of information and tools to help Canadians understand their individual risk factors and start making changes. For example, the newly updated Heart&Stroke Healthy Weight Action Plan is a personalized, step-by-step online program that helps you assess your current eating and activity habits, setting goals and taking steps to reach and maintain a healthy weight. Another way Canadians can Make Death Wait is by donating to the Heart and Stroke Foundation during the annual Heart Month campaign this month. Every donation to the Heart and Stroke Foundation supports investment in life-giving research, advocacy, health promotion and educational programs. It’s all aimed at reducing the impact of heart disease and stroke, while helping to give Canadians longer, fuller lives.

Reduce risk factors and do what you can to support Heart Month.

While those numbers are shocking, there is good news for Canadians, says Area Manager Shaun Cerisano. “It’s possible to change the odds against heart disease and stroke. It’s possible to Make Death Wait. 80% of heart disease and stroke IS preventable”

Canadian Cat Association holds National show in Kingston category is judged by a panel of eight judges over the course of the weekend and then Best in Show is awarded on Saturday and Sunday evenings. Elaine Gleason has been a judge for CCA for 27 years and sees it as a fun and interesting hobby, so interesting that her husband joined in the fun 10 years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of fun and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also nice because you get to travel to all of the different shows and meet different people,â&#x20AC;? said Gleason. While judging the purebred categories is pretty strict and judges need to follow specific rules, the

Heritage Events â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Cuddly kittens, household cats, and purebred cats and kittens â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what Kingstonians will see if they come out to the National Canadian Cat Association (CCA) show at Portsmouth Olympic Harbour. For new breeder and show volunteer Suzanne Sinclair, the show is a chance to show off her new cats and interact with other breeders and cats. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a large committee of us that organizes and works to make the show successful,â&#x20AC;? explained Sinclair. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are usually 140150 cats registered for the event. It is a really fun event and you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be part of the competition to enjoy it. Everyone is just excited to be there and celebrate cats. It is really entertaining and you really get to see the cats and their personalities shine. And, you get to see some cat antics too, which are always fun.â&#x20AC;? Cats compete in four different categories: household cats; championship purebreds, which are unfixed breeding cats; purebred fixed cats and purebred kittens. Each

household category is much more flexible and can be more fun for both the judges and the spectators. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The different classes have written standards for scoring and each breed has its own description of features and how to judge those features,â&#x20AC;? added Gleason. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the household pet class we have a bit more flexibility and we judge on personality, health, cleanliness and overall showmanship. The cats that are more playful and have a lot of personality usually dominate that class and they are fun to see.â&#x20AC;? This year marks the sixth year for the show in Kingston and Glea-

son is always happy to return to the city for the show. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The people of Kingston really come out and enjoy the show and support it. We also have a number of vendors there for people to shop at and we also help different rescue groups in the area. They come out to the show and set up booths and will be selling stuff to help raise funds for their organizations,â&#x20AC;? added Gleason. These organizations also enter cats in the competition sometimes. They enter cats that are in need of a home in the household category. These cats, explained Gleason,

generally have a great personality and sometimes even win the competition and end up leaving with a new home. Overall, the cat show is a fun weekend for cat lovers and breeders and Sinclair urges people to come check it out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only problem with the cat show is that you want to take home every cat you see. They are all so different and unique and it is so nice to see them all together.â&#x20AC;? The National CCA show takes place at Portsmouth Olympic Harbor Feb. 22-23.

St. Lawrence College launches new strategic plan for the future By Mandy Marciniak

mmarciniak@theheritageemc.ca

Heritage News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; St. Lawrence College wants to become an internationally recognized institution, and they have a plan to achieve this goal. On Feb. 6 the college launched its new strategic plan with a gathering in the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cafeteria. Students, faculty and the community were invited to come check out the collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan for the future and while the students may have been initially lured by the free food, they certainly stuck around to

learn more. The plan consists of three core strategic directions:  student experience, contemporary learners and sustainability. Patricia Kerth, Senior Vice-President of Corporate Services and CFO at St. Lawrence College, emphasized the need for all three of these components if the college plans on moving forward. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had lots of consultation with the students, community and faculty and this is something that we have to do for our Ministry, but it is also something that we have to do for ourselves,â&#x20AC;?

No video on No videogames games DayDay on Family Family

explained Kerth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to plan where we are going to be in the future and what do we need to do to be a relevant institution for our students, They are our number one priority.â&#x20AC;?

Kerth has been working for St. Lawrence for 10 years and has seen a number of strategic plans come and go, but this one, she says, is really exciting.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think this is the best so far. It really speaks to what the students want and it really propels us into the future properly. The students are really excited and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had many students asking how they can become more involved in the process and that is great to see.â&#x20AC;? For student ambassador Hollie Knapp-Fisher, the strategic plan will continue to help her gain real life experience outside of the classroom. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Part of the new initiatives are about expanding your learning outside of the classroom and making your time at college about more than a diploma, making it about an overall amazing college experience,â&#x20AC;? explained Knapp-Fisher, who is studying marketing and recently had the opportunity to compete in an off-campus marketing competition with her classmates. Another major part of the strategic plan is to have St. Lawrence recognized on a global scale. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right now we are doing so many things that are global like sending students on exchanges and accepting international students here and we are looking at getting accreditation so that our students are recognized worldwide. That is really important to the students and to us as a growing college,â&#x20AC;? added Kerth, also emphasizing the important role the community plays. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our mission is very simple. We are dedicated to student success, academic excellence and leadership in our communities and that will lead to more recognition globally.â&#x20AC;? For now, the college is focusing on getting the word out about their plans and Knapp-Fisher wants to make sure that other students are aware of the opportunities being provided for them at St. Lawrence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has been really fantastic thus far and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve talked to a lot of students about our experiences. Hopefully that will encourage them to take on these programs as well. They can get a wellrounded education with experience in the field and that is incredible.â&#x20AC;?

ENCHANTÉ

Enchanting and fascinating people….and their world

Mark Bergin

The new generation of jazz By Mark Bergin Columnist

There’s a mystique to jazz. Even the etymology of the word describing the music has been hidden behind the shrouds of time and urban legend. Researcher Daniel Cassidy has found a link between the first use of the word “jazz” and the Irish word “teas” (pronounced jass, which was the original pronunciation), which means heat, passion, excitement. That describes the music of Jon Batiste, jazz musician extraordinaire, who comes from a family of New Orleans musicians. When he was eight years old, Jon Batiste started to play drums. “There were already a lot of drummers in the family,” he says. “I was the youngest one and someone had to switch from drums. It was my mother’s intuition that I should play piano.” Not a bad call, mom. Batiste says he was an introspective child. Music was an ideal outlet for him. He was playing serious gigs by the time he was 15 years old. He moved to New York City to attend the prestigious Juilliard School, where he obtained his Master’s Degree in Music, studying jazz and classical piano. It was there that he realized that music was going to be his life. “At Juilliard, you’re with other artists in the scene,” he says. “It hit me once I was in New York and at Juilliard that this was it. This was the place and this was the life for me.” The Juilliard School is also where he hooked up with the musicians who would form Stay Human. “We’d met before then,” he says. “The drummer and bass player had a trio formed in high school. They visited New Orleans and saw me perform. They said they’d heard about me. At Juilliard we hooked up as a band.”

Stay Human percussionist Joe Saylor has also played with jazz legends. Like Batiste, he’s a graduate of The Juilliard. Classically-trained tuba player Ibanda Ruhumbika is almost single-handedly revolutionizing the use of tuba in jazz. The other Juilliard grad in Stay Human is alto saxophonist Eddie Barbash. Jon Batiste has played with music royalty like Wynton Marsalis, Prince, Harry Connick Jr, Jimmy Buffet and Lenny Kravitz. He regularly collaborates with jazz musician, vocalist, songwriter, and producer Cassandra Wilson. Steinway has named him one of their Performing Artists. He’s been on stage in more than 40 countries and the settings include venues like Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center in New York, The Kennedy Center in Washington and Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. He’s appeared in TV shows like Treme and in director Spike Lee’s film Red Hook Summer, for which he composed the Hammond B-3 organ music in the score. And, like Michael Bublé, and many others who consider New York the sacred ground of music, he’s also played on the New York Subway. That’s part of his goal of creating a grassroots movement encouraging accessibility and appreciation for the art of live performance. Batiste and his band, Stay Human, use Twitter and Facebook to announce their plans for performances in nontraditional venues like the New York subway. Batiste refers to these spontaneous gigs as loveriots. “That’s a great social experiment,” he says. “People from different backgrounds and eras ride mass transit together. A couple of times the police stopped us and gave us tickets. That’s crazy. The people were all loving it.” Batiste is big on music education for

young people. At the age of 27, he’s already reaching out to those who will follow him. “We learn lessons from music that enhance the quality of our lives,” he says. “Think about the things we wouldn’t be able to express or take to a different level without music. It’s not just expression. We have meaningful lives because of the arts.” He devotes time to his philosophy that stresses the importance of the arts. He’s a travelling ambassador for Music Unites, a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing music education to underprivileged children in underfunded inner city school systems. The organization works towards transforming inner city landscapes by empowering urban youth through music. “It’s an extension of what I do with education and going to schools and collaborating with people who want to do that on a higher level,” he says.

UP IN MY GRILL

A GUIDE TO CULINARY HAPPENINGS AND SEASONAL FOOD

Guilty Pleasures: Eat Your Heart Out Heritage Lifestyle – We ate our hearts out at the second annual Guilty Pleasures fundraiser in support of Loving Spoonful. On the evening of Feb. 3, eight local chefs came together in the Chez Piggy kitchen to raise awareness of this worthy cause. Dubbed the “heartbreaker event of the year”, guests joined local chefs from Chez Piggy, Le Chien Noir, Olivea, Bella Bistro and new this year Pan Chancho bakery, Atomica and Days on Front. Each chef prepared a course of torn, ripped or shredded tasting features for our dining pleasure. Loving Spoonful is a non-profit organization based in Kingston. Their goals are to enhance access to healthy food in an empowering, inclusive and environmentally sustainable manner. Over 30 per cent of Canada’s food is wasted, which translates to almost $27 billion every year. “Last year’s Guilty Pleasures event was a huge success and so much fun for all those involved,” said the 2013 host, Stev George, owner and chef at Olivea Restaurant. “It created a sense of community among the chefs.” “I believe that the work being done by Loving Spoonful is bold and important,” said Zoe Yanovsky, owner of Chez Piggy restaurant. “Their efforts to enhance access to healthy food for all deserves our attention and support and I am thrilled to have Chez Piggy and Pan Chancho participate in the Guilty Pleasures dinner. To be able to work together with our talented culinary neighbors and put what we do best on the table seems the most fitting way in which we can contribute. As a frequenter and a fan of all of the participating restaurants, we are in for one hell of a great meal - and I thank them all.” “Loving Spoonful collects surplus fresh food from restaurants, caters and farmers and delivers it to approximately 20 shelters, including hot meal programs and other social service agencies that serve the community of Kingston” said Mara Shaw, Executive Director of Loving Spoonful. “We are incredibly thankful for the sup-

port of these local chefs and business and members of the community who came out to support us.” The crisp, cold evening was quickly forgotten upon entering the Chez Piggy dinning room. At 6 p.m. the first course by chef Jay Legere of Days on Front was served, featuring a tuna tartate with a citrus vinaigrette, avocado puree on a crostini paired with a ‘Blood and Sand’ cocktail. The sweet, zippy drink was a perfect match to the fish. From that point on you just knew the evening was going to be superb. I sat at a table with a jovial bunch of individuals who were just as excited as I was to try the many courses made by Kingston’s talented chefs. The Master of Ceremonies was local businessman, Adam Koven, who also volunteered his time. He didn’t miss a beat as each chef sprung from the kitchen, showcasing his or her delicious culinary creation for us to enjoy.

Typically the chef is behind the scenes creating, Wizard of Oz “man behind the curtain” style. This evening allowed us the opportunity to get to know the chefs about town and for them to work alongside each other. We are truly blessed in Kingston to have such amazing talent. Homebase, chef Ian Arthur from Chez Piggy prepared ‘Broken and Bitter’ skewered veal hearts on a bed of bitter greens. Each tasting had a heartbreaker theme. The Atomica chef’s was called “Opposites Attract”, Bella Bistro’s “Black Seoul”, Olivea’s “Torn Apart” and Le Chein Noir’s “Highland Fling”. We finished with “Cold Hearted” sour cherry praline ice cream and an “I’ll Break Your Heart’ chocolate spoon cookie by Pan Chancho bakery. The veal hearts were a first taste of heart for many. Served rare, each morsel melted in your mouth. (In fact, I am still dreaming of them) “I thought I would try heart, especially

for the heartbreaker theme,” said chef Ian Arthur. “And, because the original owner of Chez Piggy, Zal, used to try and serve hearts on the menu each year but never really had many takers,” he laughed. It was a fitting tribute given that this month marks the 35th anniversary of the opening of Chez Piggy restaurant. Owners Rose Richardson and Zal Yanovsky were long supporters of the community. They renovated the once abandoned limestone stable and launched a dining experience that blended grace and gusto, taste and imagination. Since then, ‘The Pig’, as regulars refer to it, has been a favorite destination for food lovers for five star dining, take-out, casual drinks or long lunches on the patio. Today their daughter, Zoe Yanovsky, owns and operates Chez Piggy (68R Princess Street) and Pan Chancho bakery (44 Princess Street). “Guilty Pleasures was a smash suc-

Kate Kristiansen

cess!” said Zoe following the evening. “And it was a pleasure and an honor to be involved. “Being active in the community is an inherent part of our business - it began with my parents early on. Our major areas of support are The Food Sharing Project, The Rose and Zal Annual Breakfast, The United Way, The Limestone Learning Foundation’s Crystal Ball, The Food Bank, Kingston Literacy & Skills and now Loving Spoonful, among many others. “I believe that a healthy and prosperous community goes hand in hand with the health and well being of our small local businesses.” While there may be no hearts on the menu this Valentine’s Day, treat yourself and your partner to a night out at Chez Piggy, pre-order dinner from Pan Chancho or any of these other local chefs’ restaurants. Guaranteed each one will break your heart!

The Kingston EMC - Thursday, February 13, 2014 29


Mother’s laundry “pinchers” took on another use for Emerson Mary Cook

Columnist

editorial@theheritageemc.ca

Heritage Lifestyle - Mother had searched the summer kitchen and the wood shed. She couldn’t find it anywhere. And it was Sunday night, and she was getting ready for the Monday morning wash. The big copper tub was sitting on the back of the Findlay Oval full of water at the ready. Into this tub Mother would put all the white clothes that had to be washed. They would soak all night, with the hope that she wouldn’t have to use as much javel water on them in the morning. Heaven forbid that the whites wouldn’t be sparkling when put on the clothes line for the entire world to see! Mother liked to have everything set when she was ready to tackle what would turn out to be an all-day job. That meant the copper tub was full of whites on the stove, the rest of the laundry was sorted into heaps on the kitchen

floor, and the homemade soap cut into slivers and sitting in a pie plate. And of course, the long wood “pinchers” used to take the boiled whites out of the tub, and put them into the square laundry tub, ready for scrubbing on the washboard, would be sitting on a chair too. They looked exactly like the tweezers Aunt Lizzie used to pull out stray eyebrows when she came from Regina to visit, only these were about two feet long, made of wood held together at one end with a bolt, and strong enough that Mother could easily grab a goodly portion of white clothes out of the tub without touching the hot water. Well, the “pinchers” were nowhere to be found! It was just before supper, and Mother sent me back out to the wood shed and the summer kitchen to have another look. I even looked behind the sauerkraut barrel. No sign of the “pinchers”. “Well, they have to be somewhere,” she said, putting the finishing touches to supper. Father and the three brothers came in from the barns and the milking, and washed up at the bench near the back

door. We all took our places at the old pine table, and after Grace was said by Father, and before anyone could dig in to the mounds of food, Mother commented that she couldn’t find the wood tongs, which was the term she used. Father called them pinchers, but he knew what she meant, and that was all that was important. “Must be out in the summer kitchen,” he said. Mother assured him a thorough search had been made of both the summer kitchen and the wood shed. “Gone...just plain gone,” she said. “I know where they are,” Earl said, giving a sidelong glance towards Emerson. Emerson started to squirm and asked Everett to pass the potatoes. Earl continued. “They’re out on the chopping block behind the silo.” Everything stopped dead...just like a Hoppalong Cassidy movie reel that had broken down once in the O’Brien theatre in Renfrew. “Ouch,” Earl yelled, and we all knew Emerson had given him a good kick under the table. “Whatever are the laundry tongs doing out on the chopping block,” Mother

asked, her voice rising to a high pitch. The chopping block was where the chickens met their doom and it was also where the fish the boys caught by ice-fishing in the Bonnechere were cleaned. Everett was usually the one who performed the dastardly deed, because even though Emerson was rambunctious and full of spunk, he could never bring himself to working the chopping block. The same went for cleaning fish. In fact, he loved to fish, summer or winter, but Everett or Earl always had to bait the line for him! He didn’t want a thing to do with a live fish from the time the line went in the water, until it was served on a dinner plate! And when the fish sat in a pail of water beside the chopping block ready to be cleaned, Emerson wouldn’t even touch one to take it out of the pail and hand it to Everett. That is, until he figured Mother’s laundry tongs would do just fine. He could grab a fish, slap it on the block, and Everett could do the rest. It didn’t take all day to figure out why the tongs were out at the chopping block! There wasn’t much talk around the

supper table that Sunday night. Emerson got up from the table, put on his heavy coat, hat and boots, and headed for the silo. When he brought the tongs back into the kitchen, Mother already had a granite pail of water boiling on the front of the stove. The tongs were put into it, with a goodly dose of vinegar. She swore the clothes would smell of fish for at least a month of washings. And there the tongs sat, boiling away until bedtime. No one ever knew if Emerson ever got over his aversion to touching uncooked fish, but we all knew he never went near the tongs again. Mother made sure of that. Every Sunday night after that, and even before filling the tub with water, or gathering up the whites, she got the tongs out of the summer kitchen, slapped them on a chair by the stove, and her look dared anyone to lay a finger on them.

The EMC Real Estate Guide - Thursday, February 13, 2014 3


Home projects perfect for spring The rejuvenating spirit of spring makes this beloved season an ideal time for homeowners to take stock of their homes and properties and address any issues that arose during the winter. While some homes make it through winter unscathed, the harsh weather of the year’s coldest season can add several tasks to homeowners’ springtime to-do lists. While some projects are best left to the professionals, others can be tackled even by those homeowners with little or no DIY experience. The following are a handful of projects tailor-made for spring. Inspect the gutters Gutters tend to bear the brunt of harsh winter weather, and come spring gutters are in need of inspection if not repair. Winter winds, snow and heavy rainfall can compromise the effectiveness of gutters, which can easily accumulate debris and detach from homes during winter storms. In addition, gutters sometimes develop leaks over the winter months. As a result, homeowners should conduct a careful inspection of their gutters come the spring, being sure to look for leaks while clearing the gutters of debris and reattaching gutters that might have become detached from the home on windy winter days and nights. When reattaching loose gutters, make sure the

downspouts are draining away from the foundation, as gutters that are not draining properly can cause damage to that foundation and possibly lead to flooding. Take stock of roof shingles Much like its gutters and downspouts, a home’s roof can suffer significant damage over the course of a typical winter. Shingles may be lost to harsh winter winds and storms, so homeowners should examine the roof to determine if any shingles were lost (lost shingles might even be lying around the property) or suffered damage that’s considerable enough to require replacement. Summer can be especially brutal on shingles, especially those that suffered significant damage during the winter. If left unchecked or unaddressed, problems with damaged shingles can quickly escalate into larger issues when spring rains and summer sun inevitably arrive, so homeowners should prioritize fixing or replacing damaged shingles as quickly as possible. Check for freeze damage Frozen temperatures can be hard on humans and homes alike, but unlike humans who can stay inside when temperatures dip below freezing, homes are forced to withstand the elements throughout

the winter. External hose faucets are often susceptible to freeze damage. To inspect such faucets, turn the water on and then place a thumb or finger over the opening of the faucet. If your thumb or finger can completely stop the flow of water, the pipe where the water is coming from is likely damaged and will need to be replaced. Examine the lawn for low spots Once a lawn has thawed out, homeowners can patrol their properties looking for low spots in the yard or even low spots within spitting distance of the home’s foundation. Such spots increase the likelihood of flooding. Flooding near a home’s foundation increases the risk of potentially costly damage, while low spots on the lawn that go ignored can make great breeding grounds for insects, including mosquitoes, when the weather warms up. When low spots are detected, fill them in with compacted soil. Compacted soil can prevent spring rains from flooding a yard or damaging a home’s foundation. Assessing potential property damage is a rite of passage for homeowners in the spring. Though some damage is significant, oftentimes even novice DIYers can work their homes and properties back into shape in time to enjoy spring and summer.
