Power Corp repairs partially complete

NEWS

By TIFFANY LEPACK tlepack@perfprint.ca

EMC News – One of two pipes at the Mississippi River Power Corp has been repaired. “The repairs were completed on penstock one, which is the one that did not fail,” said Scott Newton, general manager of the Power Corp. “We started it up on Saturday, Feb. 23 and are running it at full capacity. Work got under way on Feb. 27 to remove the damaged steel from penstock two.” The Brian J. Gallagher Station had been completely shut down since last year, after it was discovered that a part of penstock two had a piece of pipe that had come apart. Newton says he is pleased that they have one of the two penstocks back up and running. “It is definitely a huge relief to have the one running. It is a positive step after many negatives,” said Newton. “It is running at full capacity, which is great that we finally have some revenue coming in.” Newton explained they are expecting an interim cheque for lost revenue or business interruption coverage.

“The amount has yet to be determined,” he said. “We are going to be compensated for all generation revenue lost on the failed unit.” Their insurance company investigated the situation; however, the specific cause has yet to be disclosed. “It was determined that it was poor workmanship in the initial construction phase,” said Newton. “I can’t discuss further details at this time on the cause due to further proceedings that are forthcoming.” Approximately 100 feet of the penstock was damaged and the other penstock was in a pre-failure state and was shut down as a precaution. The timeline for repairs is still uncertain. “We held a meeting today (March 1) with the insurance company that’s proposing a repair solution,” said Newton. “Out of that meeting they had a look at the penstock and we will know the complete cost and timelines in a couple weeks.” The plant opened in April 2010 and cost $19 million to build. It has a generating capacity of 4.6 megawatts, nearly doubling the capacity of the precious station.

EMC News – At the conclusion of the recent planning and protection committee meeting in Carleton Place, local developer Volundur ‘Wally’ Thorbjornsson delivered a message to council. A multi-page letter was handed out Feb. 19 to each councillor following a lengthy discussion regarding the municipality’s decision to refuse an offer by Thorbjornsson to purchase land on Hooper St. as the property is designated for

development with employment uses. Early on last year, the Iceland native approached the town with a proposal to buy the 9.1 acres and build a mixed residential and commercial development. Council voted 4-2 to keep the designation of the Hooper St. lands as employment in the town’s new Official Plan (OP) as supported by the background study for the OP and indicated in the Doyletech report. “As of today I withdraw my interest in this proposal as it’s

EMC News – Rural municipalities, even if they band together, may not produce enough trash to make waste recycling viable. A project in Red Deer, Alberta, spear-headed by Ottawa-based Plasco Energy Group, brought together nine rural municipalities to see if the company’s groundbreaking waste recycling program could be replicated on the prairies. “They wanted it in their communities,� said Amanda Gorchinski, marketing and communications specialist with Plasco, speaking to the Probus Club of Perth meeting at the Royal Canadian Legion branch on Wednesday, Feb. 6. “(But) they couldn’t quite get enough waste...(and) the transportation of the waste didn’t offset any of the emission benefits,� with so much trucking required in ‘big sky country,’ over many miles, to a central site. In order to make it work, “it would have to be several small communities close together to get it done.� Ottawa, as Ontario’s second-largest city, however, has more than enough garbage to go around. “It was very important for Plasco to build on this scale,� said Gorchinski. “So that we can show that we can produce. This facility in Ottawa is currently the only one like it in the world,� she said of the commercialscale demonstration site, which converts leftover waste into electricity, through a process called plasma gassification. “Historically, waste has been handled one of two ways,� said Gorchinski, with the refuse either being burned or buried. Currently, Ontario only has two incinerators, with one planned for Durham region east of Toronto. “In Europe, there is a lot of incineration. I am talking about the waste that cannot be recycled.� But Gorchinski was at great pains to point out that, no, her plant is not an incincerator, with no smokestacks. “We often get mistaken for being an incinerator,� said Gorchinski. “Plasco does not have a smokestack.� Instead, garbage is heated to 600 degrees at the beginning of the process. “There is not enough oxygen in that chamber to start a fire,� said Gorchinski. The fumes generated however form a synthetic gas that runs engines, which then generate power is “more efficient than turbines.� The company has about 150 employees, with more than $340 million in capital raised since 2005, including the likes of famed investor and philanthropist George Soros, who had third party engineers look into the company before he put in a penny. Gorchinski said that one ton of waste could produce seven to 15 kg of recovered metals, 1.3 megawatt hours of green energy, 300 litres of clean water, and 150 kg of commercial aggregate, during which, only 04 megawatt hours of power are used, with any leftover power going back into the power grid. “In areas like California, that’s a big deal,� said Gorchinski. “We are a net producer of water (too),� since there is often a lot of moisture in garbage. The company has its own water treatment facility on site, where it is treated to sewer grade level. In future, the water will be treated to a higher standard.

Amanda Gorchinski, marketing and communications specialist with Plasco, spoke to the Probus Club of Perth meeting at the Royal Canadian Legion branch on Wednesday, Feb. 6, about her company’s process of turning waste into energy. The aggregate, meanwhile, looks like a glass black rock, which are sometimes made into pellets used in construction aggregate and used to make things like roads. In the end, however, not every scarp of waste can be salvaged. “Five per cent of that, we are just not able to process,� admitted Gorchinski, though that still results in a 95 per cent diversion rate from the landfill. She admitted that while the process does produce emissions, in 2011 a comparison between its process in Ottawa and a Vancouver landfill, they came out on top as being more environmentally friendly. “We can actually improve local air quality by using our technology over a land fill,� said Gorchinski. “We are trying to do something that has never been done before in the world. It has definitely taken us longer than we thought it would...to make sure we get it right.� She did point out that the City of Ottawa is not paying anything for the facility, which is all paid for through private capital. “We, our investors, are taking that risk,� said Gorchinski. The city has, however, agreed to send about 109,000 tonnes of garbage to the facility each year, even though it can handle up to 140,000 tonnes, at a cost of $83.25 per tonne of waste processed, double what a municipality would pay for a landfill tipping fee. However, the plant will allow the Ottawa land fill to extend its life for 28 years. “This is what made it comfortable for Ottawa to be the first,� said Gorchinski, who predicted that the technology would save the city about $250 million in finding and developing a new landfill site. She added that,

by her company estimates, there could be as much as $500 million in positive economic impacts in the province. However, our southern cousins may be a little slower to embrace the technology. “Many states are not ready to start looking at a jump from a $20 tipping fee to an $80 tipping fee,� said Gorchinski. “(But) I think that the technology will speak for itself. (And) just like solar, our costs will eventually go down.� She envisions smaller satellite sites in the east, west and south ends of Ottawa so as to cut down on trucking’s emissions to get the waste to a central location. Asked if existing garbage already taking up room in a landfill site could be used at the facility, Gorchinski said that the business case was simply not there. “The short answer is nothing is impossible, but it all comes down to economics,� said Gorchinski. “It would be a very large effort that Plasco could not afford at this time... right now, we are focusing on new garbage.� She also alluded that she wished her company had had access to the same types of government supports that so-called “green energy� companies received. “Think about the incentives that wind got when they first came in. It was very expensive,� said Gorchinski. “If incentives are not there to help new technologies, it is difficult to get off of the ground,� she said, recalling that, in her time with the company, starting in 2009. “I’ve gotten to ride the waves, the ups and downs. It has been an uphill climb.� THE EMC - 2 - Thursday, March 7, 2013

Team Ontario, made up of students from Algonquin College, Queen’s University and Carleton University, show off the 950 square foot solar home, dubbed Echo, the team is building at the Perth campus of Algonquin College on March 1. The home will be part of the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon this October in Irvine, California.

Includes all framing material, doors, windows, professional construction. Starting as low as $34,900 for 1,200 square feet!

Home to be featured in U.S. competition EMC News – With seven months to go before their solar house makes the trek to California for the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon, Team Ontario unveiled the progress of the project at Algonquin College’s Perth Campus March 1. Sponsors, partners and members of the media were given a sneak peek and tour of the house, christened Echo, which is being constructed at the Perth campus by Algonquin College’s Advanced Housing program students. However, the project is a collaboration between Algonquin, Carleton University and Queen’s University, who are known as Team Ontario in the competition. According to Queen’s student Leia de Guzman, who is the business manager for Team Ontario, the group has been working on the concept since they submitted a proposal in November 2011. She said previously “After we submitted the proposal, we started getting the team together and have put our heart and souls (into this project),” de Guzman noted. “We’re fortunate in the fact that we have curriculum integration with the project,” she added. “The Algonquin students in the Advanced Housing program are building the house for credit within the curriculum.” Once the team was in place, construction kicked off in September 2012. Construction manager Jacob Morgan said Team Ontario’s proposal focuses on advancements in solar technology. It was named Echo to reflect the next generation of homeowners, known as ‘Echo Boomers.’ At approximately 950 square feet (the project could be no more than 1,000 square feet), once finished the home will be a ‘net zero’ home and run entirely on solar power. Any excess energy not used will be sold back to the power grid. Morgan indicated the two-bedroom one bathroom construction consists of two modules, a public one and a private one. The public area is open concept and includes the kitchen and living area, while the private area contains the bedrooms and bathroom. “The private space is more traditional and having the two modules allows us to get nine foot ceilings in the open space,” he explained. “We wanted to promote the idea of going back to smaller sized homes. Bigger is not necessarily better,” continued de Guzman. “Smaller is more sustainable in terms of energy and usage of materials.” What sets the home apart from others is

its R86 insulation value in the roof and walls, which is “nearly double what the Building Code minimum is,” Morgan noted. “It takes nothing to heat our house or cool our house.” The vacuum insulated panel that achieves an insulation value of R60 per inch, is another technological advancement Team Ontario is using to their advantage. As is the integrated mechanical system designed by Carleton and Queen’s students. When asked what some of the other members of the construction team have enjoyed as part of the process, many mentioned being able to use state-of-the-art materials and equipment. “I like being involved in it and for me, the fun thing is experiencing using new products I’ve never used before,” remarked Algonquin student Tyler Warren. “It’s interesting to see those new products and work with them,” added fellow student Matt Fisher. A big portion of that was due to the nearly 30 sponsors Team Ontario has on the project. “.... We’ve received cash or in-kind donations but the majority of sponsorship has been through material donations, such as spray foam insulation from BASF,” Morgan commented. JELDWEN Windows & Doors also provided all the windows for the home. Core team of 40 members but the entire group, including volunteers reaches nearly 100. de Guzman said Team Ontario is “extremely proud” about the fact that the project is entirely student-run. “This is a $1 million, two-year project. Everything from the house, website and business team is student-run,” she stressed. “That’s a key thing we’re pretty proud about. At the same time, we could have gotten a contractor to build the house but we wanted everything to be driven by the students.” Algonquin architecture professor Richard Briginshaw, who is one of the faculty advisors on Team Ontario along with Steve Harrison of Queen’s and Carleton’s Cynthia Cruickshank, said his role in the project has been made much easier thanks to the students. “I’m here to guide and advise but it’s mostly a project being done by students,” he stated, adding that the biggest challenge is coordinating the project between the three schools. “...We have more people involved than you would usually have on a house this size, so it’s a large team to manage, spread across two cities and four campuses. Communication is always a challenge but these are things the students are able to overcome by communicating

EMC News – Applause filled the room when Gord Munroe, Ontario Trillium Foundation representative formally announced that the Mississippi Madawaska Land Trust Conservancy (MMLTC) has received a $74,800 grant. The formal announcement was made March 2 at their annual general meeting in Lanark. The funds will support a two-year capacity building project by the MMLTC that is focused on long-term financial stability through enhancements to fundraising initiatives; partnership development for land use; improved communications and outreach and the development of a volunteer management plan. “We are very anxious and need more volunteers for the organization,” adds Mary Vandenhoff, MMLTC treasurer. “We really do need you.” Those interested in getting involved in the organization and this exciting time is encouraged to contact Vandenhoff at 613-278-2939 or vandenhoff@ bell.net. The Trillium grant will help the organization meet their enhancement goals as listed above by giving them the staffing required to move their online communications plan to other platforms such as Facebook.

ness for our future children not for 10 years but for 1,000 years,” Clifford said. The organization’s involvement in preserving Blueberry Mountain is perhaps its most well-known achievement with more than 800 people from ages five to 80-plus who have made the climb last year alone to enjoy the beauty of nature. Each year the area mountain attracts organizations from the Scouts to senior climbing clubs not to mention tourists who wish to glimpse the beauty of Lanark County. Clifford said being able to introduce all generations past, present and future to the beauty of this region is a humbling role but very fulfilling when looking at statistics as the one above. “I think there’s nothing that can be greater than this,” he said. The land trust held a day-long visioning session last year to establish their goals going forward and has been moving forward ever since. Most recently they celebrated the acquisition of 200 acres of land in Pakenham known as the High Lonesome Property. This reserve was made possible by the Spicer family’s donation of land and plans are just rolling out for the ongoing preservation and enjoyment of this piece of property. “You can see the excitement building,” Clifford added. “We still have other properties that we’re looking at negotiating.” The last time the MMLTC received Trillium support was in 2007-08 when they received funds to support the hiring of a staff member.

electronically.� Construction must be finished by this September, so that Echo can be packaged up and make the trip to Irvine, California for the 10-day solar decathlon competition from Oct. 3 to 13. It will be open to the public for free viewings and judging during that time period. The competition will run in conjunction with a Clean Energy Expo, so the team is excited at the prospect of thousands of visitors touring their creation. As the project moves forward towards completion, Morgan said deadlines will be tighter to ensure all of the features of the home are finished. “The biggest obstacle is because it’s (home) two units, we have to get the electricity, water, heating, ventilation and air conditioning from one module to another and also outside,� he said. “We have to figure out how to do that in an effective way and tie it all up in California.�

Team Ontario has nine days to assemble the home once in California and six days to take it down. Once there, other aspects of the competition include the group hosting a dinner party for eight people and a movie night for a competing team in the home. “It shows that our lighting and equipment works and that the sound quality is fine,� Morgan stated. “Every house is designed for your home location so ours is going to be judged based on the Ottawa area, so we don’t have to compete against California for things such as insulation.� While the team hasn’t made a final decision on what the fate of the house will be following the solar decathlon, but it’s likely it will be used for educational purposes at Queen’s. In the past, other teams have either donated the home to a family or sold it. For more information on Team Ontario’s Echo house, visit www. ontariosd.ca.

Area priests call pope’s School board disappointed with ETFO message departure shocking EMC News – It looks like the Vatican will soon be under new management. The Roman Catholic church has been without a pope since Benedict XVI stepped down on Feb. 28, and Cardinals from around the world are gathering in Vatican City to elect a new leader for the world’s estimated one billion Catholics. A successor could be in office by Easter, but until then, the Roman Catholic community waits anxiously, with nothing but speculation for the future of the church. “It was a surprise and a shock to most,” said Rev. Brian McNally of St. John the Baptist church in Perth of the decision to retire, noting that Pope Benedict XVI’s declining health had been no secret. “He indicated that it was certainly a possibility.” Still, the retirement breaks a long-held tradition, one that lasted nearly 600 years, which certainly is not being taken lightly. Pope Benedict is the first pope to purposely relinquish his papacy since Gregory XII in 1415, when he stepped down to end the Western Schism, bringing together a faith that was formally divided. “I think Pope Benedict was wise to do what he did,” added Rev. Rod McNeil of St. Francis de Sales church in Smiths Falls. “The job was killing him. He’s been very frail. Pope John Paul II stayed on until he died and others were running the church instead of him.” German-born Benedict, also known as Joseph Ratzinger, admitted that while his mind was willing, his body was weak. “Both strength of mind and body are necessary,”

said Benedict in his resignation announcement on Feb. 10. “Strength, which in the last few months, has deteriorated in me to the extent that I have had to recognize my incapacity to adequately fulfill the ministry entrusted to me.” Now, all attention turns to who will follow up as the leader of the Roman Catholic Church, and Cardinal Marc Ouellet from Quebec is a prominent candidate. The Canadian Cardinal is a local favorite and when asked who he would like to see as the next pontiff, McNally declared that Ouellet’s global perspective would be highly beneficial. “He does have better grasp of his role in the world,” said McNally. If elected, Ouellet would not only be the first Canadian Pope, but would be the first Pope elected from outside Europe. Despite excitement at the prospect of having a hockeyloving pope, McNeil states that North America may not be the best place to be looking. “The church is very alive in Africa and South America. The people in those countries need someone who represents them. I would hope that they (the College of Cardinals) would be brave enough to consider that sort of change,” said McNeil. Although his papacy was cut short, and he plans on disappearing from the public eye, Benedict’s legacy remains. “He served the lord in a society where that is so daunting,” McNally said. “Now those challenges remain with his successor.” Page Taylor is a Cooperative Education student from St. John Catholic High School completing her placement with the EMC.

ceive, we are pleased that it is advice, not a directive to elementary teachers,” said David Thomas, UCDSB director of education. “We continue to respect the fact that teachers must make their own personal decision regarding whether to volunteer in our schools. Teachers who choose not to volunteer will be treated with the same level of respect as those who do volunteer,” added Thomas. Pietersma echoed those comments. “This underscores why it is necessary to get a decision from the Ontario Labour

Relations Board (OLRB) quickly to decide whether it is appropriate for unions to disrupt our schools while contracts are in place,” he said. “We appreciate that our teachers have been reflecting on the situation, and increasing numbers have been returning to supporting our students with a full school experience.” For more information and news regarding the Upper Canada District School Board, visit www.ucdsb.on.ca.

EMC News – The chair of the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) is disappointed that the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario (ETFO) has not followed the lead of their secondary school counterparts to suspend political actions. “Our students and parents will be frustrated that ETFO has not taken itself out of the equation by which teachers decide to fully participate in school activities,” explained chair Greg Pietersma. “Although we are concerned about the information that teachers will re-

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

MVC clarifies points from recent drought article DEAR EDITOR: Firstly, a thank you to Desmond Devoy for attending and reporting on the ‘Drought 2012: Impacts and Lesson Learned in the Mississippi Valley’ workshop hosted by Mississippi Valley Conservation (MVC) and the Community Stewardship Council of Lanark County on Jan. 12 in Mississippi Mills. The following information is intended to clarify points highlighted in his article entitled ‘Expect 25 per cent less available water in next century: MVC.’ One of the workshop goals was to place the drought of 2012 and the low summer flows and water levels into the context of future climates. Paul Lehman (MVC general manager) highlighted that we can expect low-flow situations (similar to 2012) much more frequently by 2030. Seven global climate models were used to examine future seasonal climates and to infer future seasonal flows in the Mississippi River watershed. All models show the same broad general seasonal trends allowing us to infer changes to the current river regime. In order to extrapo-

late more Mississippi River-specific data, one climate model was chosen with which to run detailed daily climate data through our own watershed (hydrological) model. It was determined, in general, that winter flows will increase, while spring and summer flows will decrease making the low-flow season longer than it is now. As such, this data is enough to prompt action to prepare for future conditions. Suggested adaptations were discussed at the conclusion of the workshop. Full workshop presentations are available at www.mvc. on.ca or www.lanarkstewardshipcouncil.ca. We encourage your readers who may have questions about the climate change modeling or the other work we do at MVC to contact us at 613-259-2421 or visit www.mvc.on.ca.

COMMENTARY Fighting back at fraud EMC Editorial – Debit card fraud, vehicle theft, identity theft, phishing, lottery emails – common crimes which have affected many. In some circumstances these crimes can be easily prevented through some simple common sense tips. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, after all. This saying will be on the minds of many this month as March is Fraud Prevention Month throughout Canada. This year, the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada is asking people to be vigilant in recognizing and reporting scams to police. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. To help drive the message home, the FCAC are participating in a “2 Good 2 Be True” Day on March 12 where Canadians can talk about fraud on Twitter using the #2good2Btrue hashtag and share tips on how to stop it. Further, one-hour forums (#Fraudchat) dedicated to chatting about fraud topics such as home renovation scams, auto insurance, life insurance and staged motor vehicle accidents will be discussed on Twitter each Thursday from 9 to 10 p.m. There are many ways people can protect themselves against fraud. Debit card tips include protecting your pin, never write it down anywhere, and when using it shield your hand, check your bank statements to ensure there is no strange activity taking place. Always keep your card in sight when using it and report a lost card right away. “Phishing” and lottery emails and phone calls have become increasingly prevalent. Misspelled emails asking the recipient to click on a link to update their information, phone calls saying trips have been won, or messages saying they have won the jackpot, but have to pay money upfront. Those receiving emails, from, for example, a bank – should never respond. Instead, contact your bank if there is a concern and verify if they are indeed trying to get in touch. For lottery emails, you can’t win unless you have purchased a ticket. Random email addresses are not selected to win prizes, and reputable companies do not use free email accounts in order to contact members of the public. If you don’t recognize the email address, simply delete it. For information on fraud prevention, visit www.fcac-acfc. gc.ca.

Mary’s decision of what to give up for Lent was difficult one EMC Lifestyle – EMC Lifestyle - As far as Father was concerned, Mother had taken this Lent business too far. Her giving up meat herself every Friday all year was one thing, but taking it off the menu for everyone during Lent was another kettle of fish altogether. No meal was complete without a good platter of meat on the table, according to Father. And now Lent was here, whatever that meant. And Father thought Mother’s idea of not only giving up meat on Friday’s for everyone, was right up there with asking a farmer to give up chores, but now she was pressing everyone to give up something they loved for the entire few weeks of Lent!! She suggested Father might want to give up his pipe. As if to show his defiance, he put a match to it, which was already going at

full steam ahead! “It will be good discipline for the children,” Mother said, and she asked us to think long and hard at what each of us could sacrifice, all in the name of Lent. Mother said if we wanted, we could give up something and not tell anyone else what it was. It would be our secret between us and God. Well, my sister Audrey wanted everyone to know she was giving up butter. Audrey loved butter, especially since Mother started adding a few drops of yellow colouring to what came out of the churn. Before that it was as white as the driven snow! She was going through her religious phase, and she fell right in with Mother’s orders that we five children think long and hard at what we could give up, all in the name of Lent.

eryone to know he was giving up whittling. Audrey thought it had to be something you ate. So Earl switched to turnips. Emerson, who said he was giving up pie, lasted one meal. So he switched to gum. His chances of getting a package of gum were pretty slim back in the ’30s, so that wasn’t much of sacrifice for Emerson. Everett loved dill pickles and he told everyone within earshot he wouldn’t be taking another dill until Mother told him Lent was over.

Now, I loved my food. I ate every meal as if it was my last one on earth. I hated headcheese and blood pudding, but this time of year our supply of both had pretty well run out. I had no idea what I could give up that wouldn’t seriously affect my mealtimes, and couldn’t come up with a thing. I took my problem to my older and much wiser sister Audrey, who was always able to come up with a solution to just about anything that ailed me. She suggested I give up either butterscotch discs or baloney both of which she knew I loved with a passion, ever so much more than licorice pipes and humbugs which Mr. Briscoe from Briscoes’ General Store often thrust in my hand.

shrubbery on the way home. I had no taste for either. Both of them always made me think of Cascara which Mother had great faith in, and whether we needed it or not, we were often made take a heaping spoonful “just in case”. In case of what I had no idea! I knew perfectly well if I gave up baloney or butterscotch discs, I wouldn’t last a week. I asked my sister Audrey if God would mind if I kept my sacrifice to myself. If it would be diluted if I gave something up, and told no one. Audrey said she would think about it. Finally she said: “I see no reason why you have to tell anyone. It’s between you and God.” I said a silent thank you for this bit of information.

REGIONAL NEWS LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Comments from recent land claims meeting “inaccurate, misleading� DEAR EDITOR: I attended the Land Claims meeting of Feb. 22. The proposed Land Claim treaty requires open, honest, public discussion so congratulations to the three organizations that hosted this meeting. This meeting — like the other meeting hosted by MPP Randy Hillier — was a good opportunity for the public to air legitimate concerns around access to their property, the status of hunt camps, wildlife harvesting and more. But the presentation by the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH) and the comments of some of the attendees at the meeting and quoted in the EMC are inaccurate, misleading and divisive. The most important principle seems to be forgotten. The Algonquin have been here for thousands of years. The Europeans came and took their lands with no compensation. In the late 1700s, the Algonquin unsuccessfully petitioned the Crown seeking recognition and protection. Finally, some 250 years later, the Algonquin Land Claim will right that wrong. Non-aboriginals who complain that the land claim may affect their “culture� and their traditions that have “deep roots� need to shake their head — we are talking, at the most, eight gen-

erations of non-aboriginal use versus 400 generations of Algonquin culture, tied to living with and on the land. The slide presentation by the OFAH suggested that the Land Claim Treaty would erode the conservation and protection of habitat and wildlife. This is both unfounded and unfair. The draft agreement in principle proposes that 117,000 acres be granted to the Algonquin; this is only 1.3 per cent of traditional or historic Algonquin territory. The draft agreement is clear that no private lands will be expropriated. It is my understanding that non-aboriginal hunters whose hunt camps and hunting are affected will be offered other crown lands. In a second EMC article, Bob Potts, principal Algonquin negotiator, made it clear that the Algonquin want to continue to be “good neighbours� and stated that the lengthy process to finalize a treaty will require discussion and accommodation. I hope that non-aboriginals will participate in this process in the same spirit of respect and neighbourliness. Gord Harrison Lanark Highlands

Land claims agreement doesn’t mean private lands will be touched DEAR EDITOR: The reporter obviously did not understand what Matt Demille (OFAH) said concerning private property. (Re: Land claims story in March 1 issue of The EMC.) Matt Demille told the audience “that public lands will become private lands,� “that public lakes will become private lakes.� When and if Settlement Lands are transferred to the Algonquins, the land will become private land owned by the Algonquins. At no time did Matt Demille indicate that the Algonquins

would be getting existing private property. If the Algonquins were to acquire private property, it would be through a “willing buyerwilling seller� arrangement. The reporter is responsible for this misunderstanding and the resulting furor with the Algonquin Principal Negotiator Robert Potts. The reporter needs to print a retraction and an apology for writing a blatant falsehood.

complicate and distort what is already a complex land claim process. Robert Potts has a valid point – the information about transferring private lands is erroneous. The error was Metroland’s and was not a statement made by any of the event organizers. I believe the parties involved in this public education program (FOCA, OFAH, and CSIA), the three parties negotiating this significant claim, and the public, all have a right to receive the correct information and we appreciate your efforts to correct this fact in your newspapers(s) and on the Metroland website. Terry Rees Lanark County

Editor’s Note: The EMC accepts responsibility for printing erroneous information in the Feb. 28 edition out of the meeting of Feb. 22 in Perth. This led to a second story which also was based on incorrect information. See the ‘Correction’ below and see next week’s edition for a follow-up interview with Robert Potts that will serve to clarify the issues. The EMC apologizes for the errors and any inconvenience they may have caused.

Erroneous article complicates land claims issue DEAR EDITOR: As one of the organizers of a recent public event concerning the Algonquin Land Claim held in Perth on Feb. 22, I was disturbed to read the incorrect information presented in the Metroland article dated March 1. At no time during the Feb. 22 presentations or elsewhere, have any of the presenters suggested that private lands will be turned over to the Algonquins of Ontario. At our meetings, we have correctly conveyed the information that only Crown lands are impacted and may be subject to transfer to the First Nations involved. The article published has a significant factual error, one which has the potential to further

New lungs for a community leader with March 23 Lombardy benefit EMC Events – Jacqui Bowick-Sandor is playing the waiting-and-hoping game with bated breath for a new set of lungs and the wait is long. In the coming months, Bowick-Sandor will be visiting the hospital often as she gets closer to receiving this precious gift. In hopes of being a transplant candidate, there will be many preliminary trips into Toronto to meet the criteria. Family and friends have come together in hopes of raising enough money to help support the cost of medications, living accommodations, and the many, many trips into the hospital that will be ahead and hope to make this time and battle with pulmonary fibrosis a little easier for both Bowick-Sandor and her husband Bruce Sandor. A fundraising dinner and dance will be held on Saturday, March 23 at the Lombardy Hall, starting at 5:30 p.m. to help with these anticipated costs. “We have a pretty good group – some have put donation jars out, some are postering the neighbourhod, some are arranging music, and others are getting silent auction items,” said Robin Heald, a long-time friend and one of the organizers of the fundraiser. “Jacqui has volunteered at Big Brothers Big Sisters and she’s a real community leader,” said Heald. “She’s even a Sunday school teacher.” Bowick-Sandor worked for many years at the former Warring’s Independent Grocer and then for a period of time in administration at local schools. When she wasn’t at work Bowick-Sandor volunteered her time with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lanark County, the Smiths Falls Child Development Centre and her local Sunday school. Bowick-Sandor and Sandor have done so much for others in the community for many years. Because of this, there is a long list of friends and sponsors lining up to give back, offering to help them out with the extra costs in this battle, noted Heald. There are many miracles on the road to a lung transplant including friends, volunteers, donors, and volunteer entertainers. Together, they are

65 Bacchus Island Rd Smiths Falls Rural Evelyn Lee 613-205-0999

planning a night of great food and entertainment for the benefit. “A delicious dinner of roast beef, baked beans, and salads supplied by our generous donors and volunteer cooks, friends and sponsors will be available,” said Heald. The Kinsmen bar will be open throughout the evening. Volunteer entertainers will round out the entire evening from dinner to 1 a.m. including MC Hugh Colton, Vine Rhymes, Sasquatch Babies, Jam Junkies, Royale with Cheese and an exciting surprise group. A silent auction will be available for viewing and bidding from 7 to 8 p.m. as friends will have a chance to place a bid at the silent auction with items such as jewelry, gift certificates and cooler picnic baskets donated by dozens of friends, retailers and supporters in the area. “We have had many generous donations,” Heald said. For those staying around to enjoy the later bands, a midnight snack will be served around 11:30 p.m. A limited numbers of tickets are available in advance in Smiths Falls for $20 at Debbie’s Serenity Room, Sugold Jewellers, and Pools 2000. Tickets will be available for $25 at the door if not sold out. If you are on the long list of people who have been touched by this couple’s kindnesses throughout the years and you care to volunteer, entertain or donate for the event, call Beth Green at 613-275-1701. Cash donations can also be made to donation jars available at Sugold Jewellers, Pet Valu, Gerbos, The Jersey Shop, Service Canada, 2 Care 4, Canadian Tire, Pools 2000, Andres’ Independent Pharmacy, or at Bank of Montreal in trust for Bowick-Sandor. Enjoy a night of great live music and dance the night away with friends. Come see the miracle that many hearts can create together. Submitted by the organizing committee with files from Stacey Roy.

Every oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outlook on the weather is all relative EMC Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been an old-fashioned winter in this region with plenty of snow â&#x20AC;&#x201C; more than enough thank you â&#x20AC;&#x201C; along with periods of cold and just enough freezing rain to make it particularly treacherous on certain days. We experienced a full-blown winter storm the middle of last week, the worst of the winter to date. Naturally it was the chief topic of conversation for a couple of days. Canadians love to talk about the weather, especially during winter which is the least favourite season for so many of us. That is evidenced by the sudden migration south that occurs as soon as the weather becomes unfavourable in the fall. Now it is spring training time for Major League Baseball teams. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s usually the first signal for the so-called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Snowbirdsâ&#x20AC;?, those Canadians who can afford to spend their winters in the American south, to make plans to return for the better weather that usually dominates in this part of Ontario from April to October. Some of our own friends and acquaintances who winter in Florida and Arizona are either already home or are about to make their way north. My sister Linda and her husband Allan from Stittsville spent three weeks in sunny Arizona. While they enjoyed the temperatures the locals found daytime highs in the low 60s Fahrenheit (15 to 17 Celsius) â&#x20AC;&#x153;quite cool.â&#x20AC;? Of course consider summer temperatures in the desert and you know why the 60s in winter are considered cool. I watched a little golf from Arizona a couple of weekends ago and despite sunshine and very green, greens some of

the players were wearing toques. They donned gloves between holes. I laughed to myself, thinking that hearty Canadians would probably be in shirtsleeves in similar weather. The truth is that weather is relative. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about what we are used to in our home areas. People around the world complain about weather. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s particularly true if conditions deviate from the norm. Very few people enjoy freezing rain, major snowfalls, gale force winds, monsoons, tornadoes, hurricanes, etc. Living in eastern Ontario itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s humorous to talk to friends and family in warmer areas of our own country, the southern United States or places such as the United Kingdom and Ireland which also enjoy moderate temperatures most of the time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How do you manage all of that snow,â&#x20AC;? a friend in West Yorkshire, England sometimes asks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We would be at a complete standstill here!â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re used to it,â&#x20AC;? I reply bravely. Even though in most cases it is a halfhearted response. The truth is the older I get, the more I detest winter! In this area we are prepared for the ravages of a Canadian winter. The U.K. isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t prepared. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all relative isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it! Mild Tennessee A few weeks ago my friend Frank LeBlanc and I had the opportunity to experience southern U.S. winter weather firsthand and hear the response to it. We were in Franklin, an historic suburb of Nashville, Tennessee. The five-day trip was a business visit on behalf of the Carleton Place Sister City Committee of which we are both members. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m privi-

leged to be the current chair. February weather in middle Tennessee can be widely variable. Normally though it is very mild by our standards with daytime temperatures of between 50 and 70F (10-21 C) and overnight readings of 30 to 45F (-1 to 7.2C). When we were there the overnight temperature never slipped below freezing and the warmest day was a balmy 17C, just above 64F. Before poking fun at our friends in Franklin I should tell you about our experience in Charlotte, North Carolina, the U.S. hub we flew to on our way from Ottawa to Nashville. Unfortunately there are no direct flights to the Tennessee capital from Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital. So after a little over two hours in the air, during which we could see the effects of the huge snowstorm which struck the northeastern U.S. in early February laid out below us in places such as Pennsylvania, we touched down in Charlotte. It was so foggy we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see the ground until the aircraft was less than 50 metres above the tarmac. Our connecting flight was delayed some 90 minutes (not due to weather â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the fog lifted) so we had about three hours to wait in Charlotte-Douglas In-

ternational Airport which, by the way, is one of the best I have ever visited. It was close enough to lunch that Frank and I decided to kill some time in a pub over a sandwich and a pint of ale. Airport bars are one of the best places to meet people from all over the place. On this occasion a young gentleman pulled up a stool and very quickly engaged us in conversation. He wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happy because during a long layover he fell asleep in a rocking chair in the concourse. When he awoke and hustled over to his departure gate the flight had left â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 15 minutes earlier than scheduled. He asked the bartender for â&#x20AC;&#x153;the biggest beer you have.â&#x20AC;? He faced five or six more hours of waiting before he could leave Charlotte. He told us he was bound for Fort Worth, Texas (near Dallas). There was a clue to the southern destination in his attire. When he sat down I noticed he was wearing flip flops. I told you the weather is all relative! One morning in Franklin the friend who had driven us to a meeting shivered as we walked into City Hall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s freezing this morning, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it?â&#x20AC;? Frank and I looked at each other and smiled. It was 44F (6.6C) at the time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Feels pretty warm to us,â&#x20AC;? I responded, receiving a scowl in return. One of our hosts is a county commissioner and she can really talk. She asked about our winter and after hearing it has been very snowy she regaled us with a tale of the most recent â&#x20AC;&#x153;snowstormâ&#x20AC;? (it was about one centimetre of slush by the sound of it) to strike the Nashville region. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were driving into each other all

over the place,â&#x20AC;? she said in her delightful Tennessee drawl. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nobody down here can drive in the snow.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;What about snow tires,â&#x20AC;? I inquired. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Snow tires â&#x20AC;&#x201C; what are they,â&#x20AC;? she scoffed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Never heard of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;em!â&#x20AC;? In Franklin there usually isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough snow to plow and if there is they are hard pressed to keep roads open with limited winter maintenance capability. During dinner with friends on our first night there the conversation was about the tornadoes which had cut a path of destruction through middle Tennessee two weeks earlier. Historic Franklin was brushed by one of them. Some roofs were damaged and many trees, including a massive 180-year-old giant, were felled. The discussion centred on how our Tennessee friends had coped with the approaching storm system, hunkered down in their â&#x20AC;&#x153;safe roomsâ&#x20AC;?. Most homes in the region have safe areas for just such an emergency. Yes indeed, weather is all relative. Another day we went to the local visitor centre for a meeting. A lady from the Convention and Visitors Bureau I have known for several years met us. When she walked in she was wearing a scarf and mittens. It was nearly 50F at the time. I teased her unmercifully of course. She slapped me with the end of her scarf. Yes, the weather is all relative. And it can be hazardous to your health too! Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell them in Franklin. But all kidding aside, I can hardly wait for spring.

Healthy Living Festival committee members are working hard to plan for interesting events and activities at the event in June. “Some of the ideas are really exciting,” Hogue added, “There’s been the suggestion for a Cardio Kick-a-Thon which would be a great way to showcase the festival while raising money for charity.” Nominations for the Healthy Living Ambassador can be emailed to dba@smithsfalls. ca or mailed or dropped off at the DBA offices at 77 Beckwith St. N., Smiths Falls, ON K7A 2B2.

Floodplain mapping project for Tay River now complete EMC News – The Rideau Valley Conservation Authority (RVCA) has just completed a floodplain mapping project along the Tay River. The project has identified flood prone areas along the river – areas that are expected to be inundated during extreme flood events. The last floodplain mapping in this area was completed in 1981 and only covered the river from Glen Tay Road to

the Tay Marsh. Now 30-years-old, this project will replace old mapping and produce new mapping for the following watercourses: Tay River – from Glen Tay Road to Lower Rideau Lake; Grants Creek – from Glen Tay Road to the confluence with Tay River; and Jebbs Creek – from the Otty Lake outlet (at Rideau Ferry Road) to the confluence with Tay River.

Using the latest hydrologic and topographic data and well-established practices in water resources engineering, the 1:100 year flood flow, regulatory flood levels and corresponding floodplain limits were estimated throughout the study area. A public open house was held on Dec. 11, 2012 at the public library in Perth to show and explain the flood risk

and regulation limit lines to the public. Twenty-six members of the public, as well as four RVCA board members and three municipal staff attend the open house. In general, local residents felt the flood hazard areas identified through this study were reasonable and consistent with their personal experiences and observations. The RVCA board of directors ap-

proved the new mapping at its last meeting on Feb. 28. These maps will now be used by municipal and RVCA planners to determine where development should and should not be located. These maps, like their counterparts on river systems across Ontario, are the cornerstones for keeping people and property safe during high water events. The technical report is now available at www.rvca.ca.

Youth benefits from Big Brothers Big Sisters’ in-school mentoring program EMC News – About two years ago, Erin Borthwick decided she wanted to do something to give back to her community. She decided that volunteering for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lanark County and mentoring a child would be the perfect way to do that. Borthwick chose to mentor through the inschool mentoring program, which allows a child an hour per week out of the classroom to hang out with a mentor. Studies show that this one on one time provides a child with much needed friendship, impacts their academic success, and helps prevent bullying. Borthwick was matched with a young girl named Catelyn. Even though they only have an hour together each week, Borthwick and Catelyn have made the most of this time. They play board games, they read, they play hula-hoop in the gym and, on occasion, they just walk around and chat. Borthwick says Catelyn really enjoys playing on the computer and showing her how to play computer games. Their friendship began about a year and a half ago and is still going strong. Catelyn describes Borthwick as funny and fun to play with. She says she really enjoys scrapbooking with her mentor and treasures the scrapbooks they make. After nearly two years of being matched, Borthwick has noticed changes in Catelyn. While Catelyn was somewhat shy when they first started to spend time together, over time, her confidence level has increased. As an example, one day when they were playing in the gym, a microphone had been set up on the stage for the Remembrance Day ceremony. Glancing at Borthwick, Catelyn said “I’m going to overcome my biggest fear,” and commenced to sing one of her favourite songs into the microphone. Even when two men came into the gym to do some work, Catelyn continued to sing. Borthwick was very proud of what Catelyn did. This match has produced many smiles and happy thoughts for Catelyn and Borthwick. Both really look forward to their weekly meetings and say they have learned from each other and made some amazing memories. Most im-

Trails corporation holds annual meeting EMC News – The Lanark County Municipal Trails Corporation (LCMTC) held its annual general meeting before the regular county council meeting on Feb. 20. The corporation reports to the county’s community development committee and its mandate is to design, develop, manage and promote motorized and non-motorized trails on countyowned property. Donations and in-kind support help the organization to make improvements on the trails. Lanark County Warden Bill Dobson (Montague reeve) acknowledged the hard work, passion and achievements of the members of the LCMTC and expressed his thanks to the board. “Trails are such a valuable community asset and they promote healthy, active lifestyles and nature awareness,” he said. He referred to a report entitled ‘The Economic Benefits of Trails’ that notes participation in trail-based recreation is growing rapidly. “Eighty-four percent of people surveyed in the report said that walking is their favourite activity,” he said. LCMTC president Les Humphreys presented his annual report, which referenced some of the ongoing projects and accomplishments for 2012. Highlights included a parking area established off County Road 16 near Bottle Lake Road to provide access to the Big Ben Memorial Trail; a new 1.6-kilometre loop added to the Baird Trail in Lanark Highlands; benches and trees purchased for the Tay River Pathway; and a partnership with Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists to develop the Gunn Creek Trail on the Lanark Co-Op property in Lanark Highlands.

He also noted members attended various promotional functions, such as the Healthy Communities Recreation Summit, the Ontario Trailhead conference and the Funders Forum, and noted the county’s Outdoors Map, which included substantial trails data, garnered prestigious recognition for Lanark County Tourism at the Ontario Tourism Summit in October. The corporation continues to work on funding opportunities, a policy handbook, a five-year action plan, a possible partnership for management of the K&P Trail, an initiative to open a mountain bike trail in the Pakenham Forest and a trails inventory. LCMTC continues to work in partnership with numerous local and provincial organizations. “I would like to thank Lanark County Council for their ongoing support and also Lanark County staff members Stephen Allan and Erica Patterson for their hard work and patience,” Humphreys said. There are various ways to assist the county’s trails initiatives. Donors can purchase a bench on the Baird Trail or Tay River Pathway in Perth for $1,500 and provide wording for an associated commemorative plaque. Donations of any amount can be made for general trail development across the county. The county’s public works department administers the donations on behalf of the trails corporation and tax receipts are issued for donations of $20 or more. More information about Lanark County’s Community Forests and trails can be found at www.lanarkcounty.ca or www.lanarkcountytourism.com. Submitted by the County of Lanark.

New partnership for Naismith Foundation with NBL Ottawa team By TIFFANY LEPACK tlepack@perfprint.ca

EMC Sports – Clem Pelot of Almonte’s Naismith Basketball Foundation is hoping a new partnership with Ottawa’s professional basketball team will be a slam-dunk. The foundation and the National Basketball League (NBL) of Canada Ottawa team are set to work together this fall. “We are going to be establishing some sort of partnership with the team and potentially with the league,” said Pelot who spoke at the launch of the team name on Feb. 26 at Ottawa City Hall. During his speech he told the crowd the board was working to develop a new strategic plan to establish its future priorities. “It’s already clear that one of those priorities will be seeking partners to help us achieve our mission,” said Pelot in his speech. “And so we are grateful for the opportunity to work with Ottawa’s new NBL team, to achieve our common goals.” Gus Takkale, co-owner and president of Bytown Sports and Entertainment Inc., which runs the Ottawa NBL team, echoed Pelot’s vision to work together. “We are in talks about establishing a great partnership with the Naismith Foundation,” said Takkale in an email to the Canadian Gazette EMC. “They have extended enormous support to us as our visions are aligned...to bring awareness of the great sport of basketball and reflect the remarkable heritage and development of Naismith’s game in Canada and around the world.”

The partnership is off to a positive start as Pelot was pleased that the media kits handed out at the event included information on the foundation. “It was a very nice gesture,”

said Pelot. “We are in the first steps of this partnership.” The team debuted the name the Ottawa TomaHawks but later pulled it due to backlash on social media. The name change did not stop Pelot’s enthusiasm for the new team. “We are delighted that a professional team is starting this fall in Ottawa,” he said. “It’s an opportunity for us to further our mission.” Pelot is very excited at the opportunities the partnership can bring. “We are extremely grateful for the opportunity and we are looking forward to fleshing out the partnership. We are also open for people to come out to chat with us…we are all volunteers and we could use some help.” Although they have yet to finalize the details of the partnership some of the early ideas are taking shape. “We are talking about holding an exhibition NBL game in Almonte as a fundraiser for the foundation,” said Pelot. The team is set to play ap-

proximately 30 home games at Scotiabank Place and the foundation could be at everyone. “We are welcome to have a presence at any and all of the games,” Pelot said. Part of completing their strategic plan includes updating their bylaws and constitution. “We are moving forward and we want to be more effective,” said Pelot. “We have to be careful not to bite too much off than we can handle, that is part of the challenge of managing the partnership.” The NBL launched in May 2011 and is a professional basketball league currently with eight other teams. The Ottawa team is set to join the league in the fall run by Bytown Sports and Entertainment. The Dr. James Naismith Basketball Foundation is a non-profit charity organization that was established in 1989 to erect and operate a suitable memorial to honour the founder of basketball at his birthplace in Almonte.

The new package will continue to offer readers and advertisers the strong and varied content they have come to expect, notes Metroland Media Vice President and Regional Publisher Mike Mount. “Our papers have built a reputation for excellence over

many years, bringing their communities a wide array of news, sports and features,” Mount said. “This will continue with this new format.” To reach the editorial department, contact news editor Ashley Kulp at 613-283-3182, ext. 156.

LOCAL NEWS From front page

Julian, hospital executives and owners of CP Tire, Wayne and Paul Luciano. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have to express my regrets for how this proposal was handled,â&#x20AC;? said Thorbjornsson. He noted meetings were held with the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planner (Lisa Young) and chief administrative officer (Paul Knowles). With Young, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I brought up the idea of developing mixed-use buildings that could accommodate enough employment space to facilitate the health village as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposed, along with high class facilities that could host new professional jobs,â&#x20AC;? said Thorbjornsson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To make that financially viable on that land I needed additional revenue that could only be created by adding residential units on top of employment space.â&#x20AC;? Both Young and Knowles liked the idea, he said, and each were shown a sketch illustrating two to three buildings with a footprint of about 20,000 square feet â&#x20AC;&#x201C; each with main floor employment space and two additional stories for residential units. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At no point did (town) staff indicate that this project could not be done,â&#x20AC;? said Thorbjornsson.

After reading the 2010 campaign promises of all members of council, the developer said he facilitated those promises into his final proposal, along with the assistance of architect David Blakely. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From there we added better space for health village-related businesses, living and care for seniors, focused on job producing design components and added retail space,â&#x20AC;? said Thorbjornsson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;David also followed some guidelines from similar projects that have been built in Ottawa.â&#x20AC;? Moreover, space was maximized by way of multiple storeys and underground parking. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My proposal called for more jobs per acre than most of the permitted uses would have,â&#x20AC;? said Thorbjornsson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought the outcome was a smashing success. We were able to accommodate all necessary space to facilitate the whole wish list of our elected officials and add to it state-of-the-art, modern living space for the professionals we hope to attract to Carleton Place.â&#x20AC;? He has spent $22,000 thus far on the proposal. In 2012, councillors attended Scandia Business Park, which is owned and operated by Thorbjornsson. There a presentation was made about the pro-

posed development. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It went as I thought it would â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they all loved it,â&#x20AC;? he said. The proposal was then shown to town staff. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After a council meeting with staff and OP planners I heard that the support might not be as strong as after the initial presentation so I met with mayor (Wendy) LeBlanc who pledged her support after shaking my hand and looking me straight in the eyes,â&#x20AC;? said Thorbjornsson. A second presentation took place incamera in council chambers. Local realtor Shaw submitted a formal purchase offer in five phases to accommodate the service installation, street construction and the absorption rate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From that date neither Ralph Shaw, me personally or my company have received any kind of official response,â&#x20AC;? said Thorbjornsson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have heard rumours, comments, talked to staff and individual council members, but have never been dignified with a formal response.â&#x20AC;?

and throwing away a great opportunity for our town to grow and flourish,â&#x20AC;? said Thorbjornsson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not happy with is how the whole thing was handled. At no time was I offered to meet with council to discuss the proposal to see if there was any common ground where we could have come to an agreement to do a modified version of the plan. I have even seen intimidation tactics towards groups that have supported the proposal.â&#x20AC;? Thorbjornsson arrived in Canada from Iceland approximately 11 years ago. He spent the first couple of years in Ottawa, before moving up to Mississippi Lake where he resides with his family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Defeat and retreat are not my words and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t consider this a defeat as this proposal will resurface...Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not a man that holds a grudge and therefore I want to call a truce and move on,â&#x20AC;? said Thorbjornsson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I see ample opportunities in our great community...â&#x20AC;?

Chamber view â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would hurt our downtown coreâ&#x20AC;? is a comment heard by Thorbjornsson regarding his proposal. Disappointment â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not according to the Chamber or â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can handle a few council members BIA,â&#x20AC;? he said. going against the will of the community The Canadian Gazette EMC obtained

copies of the letters sent to council by the two organizations clarifying their positions on the proposal. The feedback was requested by Knowles. Chamber president Tracy Lamb appreciated the opportunity to provide input into issues that do or could have impact on the potential for economic development and community building within Carleton Place. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In summary, the Chamber is prepared to support zoning for the use of this land that will best serve the long-term vision for community growth,â&#x20AC;? she wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We would like to see the potential of this land optimized through a well consulted and thought through plan and integrated project â&#x20AC;&#x201C; rather than individual pieces of land being sold off to a variety of businesses and uses with no connection to the other.â&#x20AC;? Paul Sorfleet, BIA chair, said â&#x20AC;&#x153;...we did not think this proposal would have a negative effect on the downtown merchants, but the decision to approve the project lay with elected and non-elected officials of the town. This remains our position.â&#x20AC;? The town held its final public meeting March 4 regarding the OP. This gathering was held after the paperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deadline.

Hospital auxiliary marks Diamond Jubilee anniversary, honours volunteers By STACEY ROY sroy@perfprint.ca

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The success and achievements of the Memorial Hospital Auxiliary (MHA) these last 60 years was marked March 2 in Carleton Place, by recognizing its many volunteers like Isabel Hawkins. For the last 55 years of the auxiliaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 60-year history Hawkins has been walking through the doors of the Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital (CPDMH) armed with a ready smile and a desire to help her fellow residents. On March 2, Hawkins earned a standing ovation from her fellow ladies auxiliary members during the Diamond Jubilee Gala dinner and awards night at the Neelin Street Community Centre. David Raney, president of the MHA, remarked that volunteers like Hawkins humble him knowing how much they have given to the hospital over the years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The leadership you provide I really do appreciate being part of it,â&#x20AC;? Raney said. After receiving the award, Hawkins remarked she hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realized it had been so long. The dedicated volunteer had a unique perspective in the room last weekend as she was perhaps the only individual who has been with the hospital from its early days to the present day where efforts to have a new hospital facility build in the town continue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope I live to see it,â&#x20AC;? Hawkins said of the new hospital. Margaret LeBlanc was another major recipient during the gala earning a provincial life pin. LeBlanc joined the auxiliary in

EMC News - Volunteers of the Memorial Hospital Auxiliary (MHA) gathered March 2 inside the Neelin Street Community Centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upper hall to celebrate the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 60th anniversary and pay tribute to the many volunteers who have worked all those years. Above, left: Isabel Hawkins was given a standing ovation for her 55 years of service to the auxiliary. Bottom, left: Frank Lunn and Flora Neave (centre) were honoured with outstanding service pins for going above and beyond in their support of the MHA.

2000 and quickly became an integral member of the auxiliary team ultimately volunteering to interview prospective volunteers and buying items for the hospital gift shop. Mayor Wendy LeBlanc, emcee for

the evening, congratulated everyone in the room who donated their time to making the local hospital the success it is. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Here we are celebrating 60 years of the hospital auxiliary and here we have people who have given nearly 600 years of their time,â&#x20AC;? LeBlanc said giving a total tally of years of service. Indeed, volunteers with years of service ranging from 55 to 15 took their turn approaching the front of the room to receive their pin. Lois-Anne Brebner, chair of the board of trustees, noted last year alone volunteers gave almost 20, 000 hours to the hospital, the equivalent of over 10 full-time staff positions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As your motto says one person can make a difference and you do each and every one of you,â&#x20AC;? Brebner concluded. Melba Jarvis had the honour of presenting two outstanding service awards. Frank Lunn and Flora Neave each received this special recognition for providing exceptional service to the auxiliary and hospital over the years. In introducing Lunn to the crowd, Jarvis said â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always there to lend a helping hand. You make that special difference within the auxiliary and the hospital family.â&#x20AC;? The depths of Neaveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dedication to the auxiliary and its mission of supporting the work of the hospital was highlighted when the local woman volunteered to serve strawberries at a past fundraiser despite being allergic to fruit.

Day after day of being miserable, irritable, and looking a lot older than you really are. The frustration of knowing that your friends and family don’t understand what you’re going through.

“I feel like my head is in a vice.”

Add this to doctors’ visits, MRI’s and CT scans which come back with “normal” results.

“I get tension in the neck and pain down into the shoulders.”

“My eyes hurt and I feel so old” “I have to lay down in the dark.” “I’ve had migraines since childhood.”

And that’s not all… trying one medication Does that sound like you? These people tell after another, feeling like you’re on a merry- me they’re sick and tired of jumping from one go-round of increasing levels of drugs. headache medication to the next.

“This lady is the essence of a volunteer,” Jarvis said. Scott Reid, MP for Lanark, Frontenac, Lennox & Addington presented a trio of certificates to the auxiliary in commemoration of their Diamond Jubilee anniversary. The first was on behalf of himself, the second on behalf of MPP Randy Hillier who couldn’t attend that evening and

the final one from Prime Minister Stephen Harper whose letter to the MHA read in part: “You can take pride in knowing that your efforts have made a lasting difference. You made your community a better place.” The MHA was born May 22, 1953 two years before the hospital opened with the express purpose of raising funds for the new health care facility. “You’ve been hard at work ever since,” Brebner said.

Bingo pioneer receives top honour within Almonte Legion Branch 240 By TIFFANY LEPACK tlepack@perfprint.ca

EMC News – Bingo! After five years of dedication to the game, comrade Gwen Robertson was honoured with a special award Feb. 23 The Blakeney resident was told to attend the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 240 Almonte Volunteer Night, but little did she know she would receive the Legionnaire of the Year award. “I was truly shocked,” said Robertson. “I felt it should have been the whole group. It’s quite a big honour, I was amazed; still am!” A rare event happened after she won the award. “I was speechless and that’s very unusual for me,” she said with a laugh. “It was not expected at all. I knew it was volunteer night and they would thank the bingo volunteers, that was it.”

Robertson started the Sunday Night Bingo at the legion five years ago; she has now passed on the reigns to a new committee. She has been a member of the legion for six years and was previously a member of the ladies auxiliary. Legion president John Souter praised Robertson for her work on the bingo. “Comrade Gwen best represents the ideals of the legion, in that she thinks of others rather than self. On retiring six years ago, she pioneered the Ladies Auxiliary Sunday Night Bingo, recruiting family and friends, as well as legion members as volunteers,” said Souter in an email to the Canadian Gazette EMC. “For five years, she gave up Sunday evenings to this major fundraiser, with Branch 240 and local charitable organizations being the main beneficiaries. Not only is she a valued asset to the legion, she also inspires

others to give of their time and talents, and is a most worthy recipient of our (inaugural) Legionnaire of the Year Award.” Robertson decided to start the bingo to help the branch. “It was a great income. I’m a bingo player and knew it would help the legion with all of its community programs,” said Robertson. “It kept me

busy after I retired and I decided to put my volunteer time into the legion. I love helping them out.” She was very humble after receiving the award and said she could not have done it without the help of others. “It’s running very smoothly now and it helps the legion, too,” she said. “We are very lucky as there are a lot of people to help out.”

The award was designed to honour the Branch 240 member who has made an outstanding contribution to the branch in 2012 and who most exemplifies the ideals of the Royal Canadian Legion. The nominations were judged by the two most recent past presidents (comrades Dave Cormier and Paul Watters), and one branch member (comrade Doug Sutherland).

The TV stars who made our senate a joke EMC Editorial – Since we’re talking about the senate today, we might as well start off with a joke. A joke often begets a joke, after all. What does Senator Mike Duffy have in common with Anne of Green Gables? They’re both fictional residents of Prince Edward Island. That one comes courtesy of New Democrat MP Charlie Angus (TimminsJames Bay). Yes, to whom much is given, much is expected. To the likes of Duffy and fellow Senator Pamela Wallin though, much is given, but very little is expected except the truth and a little transparency. Though he is Maclean’s humour columnist, Scott Feschuk, a former chief speech writer to Prime Minister Paul Martin, feels a certain sympathy for Duffy. He notes somberly that “who among us hasn’t been stumped by trick

questions like, ‘Where do you live?’” Yes, to say that the senate is broken is an understatement. To say that Wallin and Duffy, former television journalists, should have known better, not just to have fudged on their expenses, is one thing, but the way they have handled this in the media, is simply jaw-dropping. To quote that other TV star, “That dog don’t hunt.” The Toronto Star reports that Wallin has an Ontario Health Insurance Plan card, as does Duffy. Wallin also has a condo in New York City, and a home in Wadena, Sask. Why then was it so hard for Wallin to admit, during an interview with CBC Radio in Saskatchewan, whether she had an OHIP card or not? You either do or you do not, and by fudging her answer she, like Duffy, sounded just like the waffling, hedging politicians they used to cover.

It’s a simple yes or no. Once again, to the question, where do you live, Pamela? Surely you must spend enough time in Ontario to qualify for OHIP. You also have to be resident in Saskatchewan for a number of days to qualify to sit in the Senate – it’s in the constitution. Then there’s the matter of your residence in Manhattan. That surely must cost a pretty penny, and you certainly must get away often enough to justify having it. So which is it? Where do you live? How does one divide one’s time between Ottawa, New York and Wadena? Before his other legal troubles, involving an alleged assault at his Quebec home, Senator Patrick Brazeau was in the same boat as Duffy regarding his living expenses, getting confused about the byzantine questions asked of senators claiming the expense: namely, do you live more or less than 100 km from Parliament Hill?

“Such a query would confound Stephen Hawking, Doogie Howser and Deep Blue combined,” wrote Feschuk. How successful would you be if you tried this with your boss? Now, yes, we must admit that Duffy is paying the roughly $22,000 in expenses back to the taxpayer, (CTV reports that Wallin also paid some money back) but only because he got his hand caught in the cookie jar. “His initial response when questioned by his former colleagues about the expenses? “It’s none of your business.” Actually, Mr. Duffy, it is. It’s our money. You work for us. And getting money you don’t deserve is certainly unethical. But don’t worry, come the next election, we’ll vote him out – oh wait, this is the senate...maybe not! Maybe they like it this way, this anonymity. After all, it appears that, before these cases broke, silence truly was golden.

Hospital upgrade: to be or not to be the province on whether or not we get final approval and funding for a new hospital in Carleton Place? In closing, after spending hundreds of hours in many different hospitals across the region over the last ten years, I am deeply concerned about the physical structure and configuration of our hospital and how it is rapidly degrading and unable to safely continue to meet modern patient needs, particularly with respect to optimal infection control and space for new technologies.

DEAR EDITOR: I read in the EMC that a Carleton Place town councillor has donated $10,000 to the Mississippi Valley Conservation Foundation. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad to see Mr. (Louis) Antonakos is a champion a worthwhile cause as the Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority (MVCA). Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve worked with conservation authorities in the past and they do excellent work in managing watershed, promoting sustainable use of resources and improving wildlife habitat.

DEAR EDITOR: If the Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital (CPDMH) is going to continue providing quality health care and services, it is important that our community understand the current and future situation surrounding the hospital redevelopment project. In 2007, the CPDMH corporation and board of trustees announced that it would concentrate its efforts on the redevelopment of the hospital. Today, years later, we have the same hospital, but â&#x20AC;&#x153;we are at capacity now,â&#x20AC;? according to Toni Surko chief administrative officer (CEO) of the CPDMH (EMC July 5, 2012). Other dire statements made in the press by officials about our hospital situation include: demand for services and beds have increased well beyond the hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to serve under its current conditions; there are serious issues related to the buildingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s layout and infrastructure; the hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s configuration impedes delivery of optimal care; the hospital continues to experience serious problems related to patient flow and accessibility; operating deficiencies are tough; greater risk of cross-contamination; no sprinklers in the patient care area; asbestos in the building; there are not enough washrooms for people with disabilities; the boilers are just hanging on; etc. It should be noted that during the same time frame our hospital and board have been pursuing a new hospital, Almonte, Perth, Smiths Falls, Arnprior, Renfrew, Pembroke, Kemptville, and Winchester were successful in upgrading their respective hospitals. Even the Sharbot Lake Family Medical Centre was successfully upgraded during this time frame. If the hospital redevelopment team continues to go down the current path of pursuing a â&#x20AC;&#x153;newâ&#x20AC;? hospital verses an â&#x20AC;&#x153;upgradeâ&#x20AC;? to our existing hospital or â&#x20AC;&#x153;traditionalâ&#x20AC;? financing verses â&#x20AC;&#x153;public private partnershipâ&#x20AC;? financing, we will experience a prolonged critical drop in the quality of health care and services we have come to expect from our local hospital and its dedicated and loyal staff. I should also mention two additional indicators that demonstrate the hospital redevelopment team is on the wrong path. 1) Our community is too small to raise the $17,000,000 required to uphold our end of financing a $96,000,000 project. 2) The province has indicated it has no current or future plans to build any additional new hospitals in non-metropolitan communities in Ontario. To be, or not to be is the question we all need to ask the people in charge in regards to our current hospital and future health care services. In addition, we may also want to ask the following questions: â&#x20AC;˘ Why canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t our hospital building needs be met in stages, as we can afford it? â&#x20AC;˘ What is the backup plan if our aging hospital is shut down before we build a new hospital? â&#x20AC;˘ Can the community safely continue to depend on our mechanical and engineering hospital infrastructure for the next 10 to 20 years while waiting for a decision from

Ottawa Valley Troubadour awarded Diamond Jubilee medal tgesner@perfprint.ca

EMC News – Well-known musical artist for years in the Ottawa Valley, Lyle Dillabough, has been awarded the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee medal. From Carleton Place, Dillabough, despite stormy weather conditions, received his medal in front of cherished friends last Wednesday, Feb. 27, at the town’s historic Moore House. The medal is a prestigious national award, which honours individuals who’ve improved the well being of people in their community. Coun. Rob Probert, a fellow Diamond Jubilee medal honouree, was happy to recognize Dillabough for his outstanding service to the citizens of Carleton Place. “I looked up in the dictionary the meaning of philanthropist,” he said, “and the simplest definition states ‘one who gives’.” Known as the Ottawa Valley Troubadour – a name given to him in 2001 by the Ottawa Sun’s Tom Van Dusen – Dillabough has an extremely versatile background: singer/songwriter, producer, promoter, writer, broadcaster and humanitarian. “I don’t have a job or a career, I have a calling,” he told the Canadian Gazette EMC. “Well, well, well deserved, Lyle,”

said mayor Wendy LeBlanc. “I am very, very proud to be able to pin this on you. Congratulations!” Another honouree, the municipal leader received her Diamond Jubilee medal in front of family, friends and colleagues on Feb 12. “There are people here tonight who have helped me in so many ways,” said Dillabough. “More than you will ever know.” He has overcome several obstacles during his 53 years, including depression, anxiety and an addiction to prescription drugs. “I can never thank you enough,” he told his friends. “Each one of you have been a part of my story, and I’m not totally sure what my story is because I’m still living it.” “This medal is wonderful, but you people are far more wonderful,” added Dillabough. “I can’t tell you how much I’m honoured and humbled by this. Thank you!” Another surprise for the troubadour came by way of a brand new Sigma guitar, which was present by Brent King of SRC Music. Photo by TARA GESNER “A few of your (Carleton Place In Concert committee) friends got to- Carleton Place mayor, Wendy LeBlanc presents recipient Lyle Dillgether,” said King. “Thank you for abough with the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee medal last Wedneseverything you’ve ever done for any- day, Feb. 27, in a ceremony at the Moore House. body.” “This is beautiful!” said a surprised Dillabough.

It was the guitar he had recently fallen in love with at the local music store. He even wrote a song on it one day about a month ago. “Coincidentally, I need a new guitar now because my dear old friend of 36 years needs a lot of work and rebuilding it would destroy the original nature and character of it,” said Dillabough. The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal marks the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty’s accession to the throne in 1952 – an occasion marked only once before by her great-great grandmother, Queen Victoria. During the year of celebrations, 60,000 deserving Canadians (all ages and from all walks of life) will be recognized. Dillabough moved to Carleton Place in 1981 at age 21. “However, I’m getting called to go somewhere else,” he said. “I’m possibly moving to Belleville. I have some family there, and there are just more opportunities in that area.” If he does leave, Dillabough promised to come back often to Carleton Place to produce, perform and promote shows. “I’ve lived a weird life,” he said. “It’s not one I chose, but it turned out that way.”

Celebrating 40 years of serving Carleton Place and area communities By TARA GESNER tgesner@perfprint.ca

EMC Business – After four decades (1973-2013) Carleton Refrigeration, Heating and Air Conditioning (CRHAC) of Carleton Place continues to be an innovator and champion in the heating and cooling industry. Partner and general manager, Roger Holmes said the company is happy for the opportunity to bring high quality products and service with the CRHAC standard of customer care to the communities of Almonte, Arnprior, Bells Corners, Calabogie, Carleton Place, Carp, Constance Bay, Kanata, Kinburn, Lanark, Merrickville, Ottawa, Pakenham, Perth, Richmond, Smiths Falls and Stittsville. CRHAC is family owned and operated. The partners: Roger, Bradley Jackson (son-in-law) and Jeffrey Jackson (Bradley’s father). The trio has officially been at the helm since 2006, after purchasing the company from founders George and Margaret McKay. Bradley was working for CRHAC and Jeffrey became aware the McKays want to sell, said Roger. “It was a good opportunity for us to take a company that had a great reputation and foundation and build on that,” he continued. Roger’s background is business management and development, and Jeffrey’s is accounting. Committed to excellence Roger said the trades have developed a bad reputation, but CRHAC is putting professionalism and confidence back in the industry. “Our focus is on customer service,” he said. “When the phone rings we

pick up the phone, and we show up on time – in clean vehicles and work clothes. We stand behind our work. There are no hidden surprises.” CRHAC also has an A-plus rating with the Better Business Bureau. “We’ve never had a complaint,” said Roger, “and 97 per cent of our customers would recommend us to their friends.” In 2006 CRHAC began an aggressive advertising campaign. The company’s famous jingle became a constant on the area’s popular radio stations. The mission: to become the preferred refrigeration, heating and air conditioning contractor. “We go that extra mile for our customers,” said Roger. “We want the entire experience for our customers to be pleasurable. That’s our goal.” He said the dedicated and licensed CRHAC team members understand the critical role they play in red carpet customer service. “Whether you are upgrading your heating or cooling equipment, building a new home or require maintenance, you can trust us,” added Roger. Services offered at CRHAC include air conditioning, heating (furnaces, radiant heating, fireplaces, pool heaters and more), geothermal energy system, servicing (residential and commercial), water heater rental and maintenance plans. “We are very busy, which is a good thing in the service industry,” said Holmes, “and because of our stature and professionalism we have the ability to take care of multiple customers.” CRHAC strongly supports the use of co-op students – from the local high school (Carleton Place High School)

The Carleton Place company celebrates 40 years in business in 2013. and Algonquin College (Perth campus). “They work with us and gain relevant work experience,” said Roger. He said it is very important for CRHAC to give back to the community. The business supports a number of local charities, organizations and initiatives: Arklan Community Public School, Carleton Place Community Portal, Carleton Place and District Chamber Of Commerce, Lanark County Food Bank, Make-A-Wish Foundation Eastern Ontario/Y101 Bootscooters, People First of Lanark County and Royal Canadian Legion, to name a few.

“We are also a proud sponsor of the Carleton Place Canadians,” said Roger. CRHAC is located at 150 Industrial Ave. The company, which employs in the region of 20 area residents, is open 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday. What’s more, 24-hour emergency service is available.

“We want to continue to grow and employ more local people, and to be here for the next 40 years,” said Roger. For additional information about Carleton Refrigeration, Heating and Air Conditioning, visit www.carletonrefrigeration.com or call 613-2578282.

SAFETY TIPS Heating: If you have not used your fireplace or woodstove for a long time, have it checked by a professional technician before using it. Your chimney may be blocked or damaged, which could cause a fire or a build-up of carbon monoxide inside the home.

The Almonte General Hospital/Fairview Manor (AGH/FVM) Foundation recently received a generous gift from the late John Jamieson (Johnny) Waddell, who left the bulk of his estate to the Foundation. Mr. Waddell, who died at the age of 100 on March 13, 2012, spent a brief period in the Almonte General Hospital’s Rosamond Unit at the age of 98, and spent his last years as a resident of Fairview Manor. “Throughout his lifetime, Johnny was one who understood the value of giving back to community in whatever way one could,” his three friends Tracy Holmes-Payne, Colleen McKee and Marjorie Bryant wrote in an article about Mr. Waddell. “He recognized that the Almonte General Hospital/ Fairview Manor Foundation was an organization integral to Almonte and the surrounding area.” Bequests are the number one method by which charities such as the Foundation receive major gifts.

Draft operational review received by council tlepack@perfprint.ca

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Town of Mississippi Mills started its operational review in a good position according to the consultant hired to conduct the review. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mississippi Mills is the envy of many communities in terms of a lot of the work you have done. In terms of what I call corporate planningâ&#x20AC;Ś. your strengths are many,â&#x20AC;? said Steve Fournier from Fournier Consulting Services (FCS) during a special council meeting on March 4. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They can be improved but the fact you have done them you are starting this operational review from a position of strength.â&#x20AC;? Council heard a lengthy presentation on the operational review draft interim report and had a chance to ask questions before the final report will be presented to council on April 23 at a special meeting. Councillors were able to weigh-in on different sections, the gathering of the data, benchmarking items compared to other commu-

nities, levels of service, the new staff hires to be included in the review and the organization of different sections of the report. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was good session tonight and we have better grounds as to where we are going,â&#x20AC;? said mayor John Levi. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think out of this review there will probably be some results we will need to do further (work on).â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have had some really good exchanges and input to help us tighten up and clean up a few areas,â&#x20AC;? added Fournier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know we are on track in other areas. This was a very productive meeting.â&#x20AC;? The final plan will include key operational areas, strategies for improvement and recommendations for moving forward. The purpose and overall objective of the review is to â&#x20AC;&#x153;produce a guiding document with key organizational and operational improvements that can be easily implemented in a timely and cost effective manner to ensure the delivery of services meets the immediate and longer term

needs of the community.â&#x20AC;? To conduct the review FCS interviewed all 11 members of council, senior staff, held two facilitated staff consultation sessions and interviewed five community leaders chosen by staff and council. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had 120 pages of interviews and that does not count the survey,â&#x20AC;? said Fournier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a very rich experience looking at the organization.â&#x20AC;? They conducted two surveys: a community survey with 164 responses and a staff survey with 44 responses. After the data was collected it was broken down into categorized areas of input which included: organizational vision, level of service, work environment/ staffing, capacity and performance feedback, information and communication, leadership and team work and size/ structure of council. In the community survey, a majority of respondents are â&#x20AC;&#x153;satisfied with the level of service they receive from the town and over 30 per cent indicated that they are very satisfied.â&#x20AC;?

Library and volunteer fire services received the highest ratings with more than 90 per cent of respondents indicating that the service is good or excellent. Results from the staff survey showed a strong sense of pride across the organization and a majority of respondents indicated that their manager treats them respectfully. Some key areas of strength identified in the report included: corporate planning, quality of life and geographic location, quality and range of community services, programs and activities, community engagement and volunteer base and committed, dedicated and experienced staff. The opportunities for improvement identified in the report included: lack of clarity regarding roles and responsibilities, staffing capacity and morale issues, lack of procedures for sharing information, inadequate external communications, growth pressures and strategic planning, lack of service and program reviews and size of council.

Almonte residents express concern over Enerdu expansion EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; There is growing concern among Almonte residents, especially those located in the central portion of the town, over the increased flood risk from a proposed private hydro-electric generation development. Enerdu Power Systems Ltd., a hydro production company owned by a local businessperson, wants to expand its Almonte facility and build a new powerhouse extending into the Mississippi River. The proposed powerhouse location is the same place where the greatest danger of uncontrolled flooding was experienced during the flood of 1998 when water levels rose well above the patio of what is now the Barley Mow pub. It was only due to rapid deployment of sandbags by community volunteers that the flooding of downtown Almonte was averted. A report by the Mississippi RiverWatchers is highly critical of the project location, a narrow choke point in the river in the centre of the town. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a demonstrated flood risk here and the planned powerhouse will definitely increase the risk,â&#x20AC;? said the reportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s author, long-time Almonte resident and re-

tired engineer, Al Seaman. In a press release from the RiverWatchers, Seaman notes â&#x20AC;&#x153;The peak flood flow in April 1998 was 282 cubic metres per second. The Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority requires construction on the flood plain to be designed for the regulatory flood of 342 cubic metres per second at this location.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is 21 per cent greater than we saw in 1998. The location of the new powerhouse will reduce the river width at its narrowest point by a further 33 per cent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The combination of higher flows and this proposed reduction in the river width increases the probability of an uncontrolled flood in Almonte significantly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that sandbags may not be adequate in this scenario. The best solution is to confine the powerhouse upgrade to the footprint of the current powerhouse and avoid any reduction of the river channel,â&#x20AC;? Seaman added. The complete Mississippi RiverWatchers Enerdu flood risk report can be viewed at www.riverwatchers.ca under â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Updates.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Submitted by the Mississippi RiverWatchers.

KENNEY (nee Henery) In loving memory of Lorraine who walked through Heaven’s Gate March 8, 2007. No Tears In Heaven They say there are no tears in Heaven, But that must be wrong today, Because you took part of our broken hearts When you went away. I know our tears must have followed you How else could it be? Our spirits feel broken Cause you are no longer here with us, We cried to the Heavens, our tears fell like rain So I know our tears must be in Heaven, Things will never be the same. They say someday we will accept your passing, But, right now that can’t be true, Because part of us is in Heaven Our tears... followed you... Tommy and Sandra Jones

Through thick and thin you helped me Now when you’re gone my life is hard to live It’s hard to breath, it’s hard to see And it’s hard to think about anything but you. Even though your love will shine in me forever It’s hard not to look for your hand to hold. Even though you’re not here with me I still have you in my heart. Love you Mom, Love Leah and Dan Harper

BARBER – In loving memory of our son, brother and uncle, Tony Donald, whom God took to be his Angel, 20 years ago tonight, March 10, 1993. We are thinking of you today “TONY”, But that is nothing new; We thought about you yesterday, And the day before that too. We will think of you tomorrow, And each day as we come and go; We will think of you forever, We love and miss you so. Your end came fast and sudden, No time to say good-bye; You were gone before we knew it, And only God knows why. Dear God take him this message, To heaven up above; Tell him how much we miss him, And give him all our “love”. Each time we see your picture, You seem to smile and say; Don’t cry I’m only sleeping, We will meet again some day. Forever in our hearts, Love Mommy and Leo, Sammy, Amanda and Faith.

Goldilocks 40 petite 5’2 110 that’s what my brothers call me. I work in the Pharmaceutical field. I used to travel a lot & now I am a Manager & Trainer. My dad passed away last year & it got me thinking about my life. I was born on a dairy farm my dad worked hard all his life, that’s where I believe I get my strong work ethic from. I have tried the online dating and it is too time consuming for me with little results. Energy to boot, this single parent is 47, 5’6 150lbs with a pretty smile long hair and the energy of girl half her age. I have a catering business, I have employees, customers and I have three teenage daughters. I also live on my family farm & have the rest of the land leased. I am busy, I don’t have time to find a MAN. I want a man in my life with all this estrogen around me, I need a man to balance everything. I am always on the go except when I relax on my front porch in the summertime. Boring I am not that’s for sure. Widow 52 toned, slim, fit, this lady has abs that would put many gym bunnies to shame. She is 5’6 131lbs not a inch of fat. . Anyone who farms knows the bad times & what needs to be done to get through on a day to day basis. I come from a large family so I know how to get along. I love to garden, work out, cook, visit friends and family. I would love to take a road trip across the US. I have never tried white water rafting, that looks like fun.

Raising employersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; awareness of the potential of people with disabilities EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Government of Canada is helping promote the important contributions people with disabilities can make to the Canadian economy. The announcement was made last week by Phil McColeman, Member of Parliament for Brant, on behalf of the Honourable Diane Finley, Minister of Human

Resources and Skills Development. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top priorities are creating jobs, economic growth and long-term prosperity. To address skills shortages, we must ensure that everyone who wants to work has the opportunity to do so,â&#x20AC;? said McColeman. Canadians with disabilities have a

tremendous amount to offer employers, but they remain under-represented in the workforce. That is why the Government of Canada, through Economic Action Plan 2012, is investing an additional $30 million in the Opportunities Fund to help more people with disabilities gain the hands-on experience they

need to find jobs. The new investment will be dedicated to national projects that connect people with disabilities with jobs in small- or medium-sized enterprises. Some of the projects will also promote to employers the valuable contribution that people with disabilities can make to their busi-

This week’s topics focus on loose belts, struts, and tight visors EMC Lifestyle – “Hello Brian, Enjoy reading your column in the Kemptville EMC each week. Recently ‘Too tall for my car (Andrew)’ wrote in about back problems. I have been driving a VW Jetta for the past 15 years, as they are one of the few FWD cars with enough leg room for my long legs. I also sometimes get a sore back when I slouch in the seat, because my butt is not far enough back in the seat for the natural lumber support in the seat to work. As I also use the car for track events, I started using a CG-Lock (seatbelt clamping accessory) to hold the lap belt tight, so I have more control on the track. I tried leaving it in place between events, and found it placed my butt back in the seat, so I had better posture, and no more back problems. More info on this product can be found at www.cg-lock.com. Thanks, BL” I did some research into the seatbelt accessory that BL is referring to and it seems like the real deal. This ‘easy-toinstall’ clamp is designed to be attached to the lap belt portion of any common three-point automotive shoulder-style seatbelt. When properly adjusted it removes the slack from the lap belt keeping the occupant from slouching down or ‘submarining’ in their seat leading to less back stress and fatigue from driving. It was developed by Bruce Mather of the U.S. who was looking for a way to improve his weekend race-track performance in his BMW. An instructor who rode a lap with him noted he was sliding around quite a bit in his seat on corners and this was affecting his timing. As the car was also used

for daily driving, installing a full fivepoint racing belt system was out of the question. So the ‘better-mousetrap’ light went on in Bruce’s brain and in 2004 he went to market with the CG-lock (CG standing for centre of gravity). Like many other great inventions, its main benefit was discovered by accident. Bruce found that he had less back stress, and less general fatigue after long drives when he used the CG-lock because it was keeping his body in the optimum position and steering and braking required less effort. The device is now in use in emergency and police vehicles as well as commercial trucks and regular passenger autos. It’s also been found to be of great benefit when securing booster seats for older children. The device has received crash-simulation testing and according to the lab involved, it does not interfere with any seatbelt passenger protection function. You can order CGLock online at www.cg-lock.com. I’m getting one shipped up shortly and will let you know how it works for me. “Mr. Turner, I drive a 2006 Toyota Sienna LE. A while back I had the van in for servicing and had mentioned to the service staff that I could feel and hear a faint grinding or clunking noise as I was making left and or right hand turns. As I result of the inspection, I was informed that the noise was coming from the steering shaft and would have to be replaced. As well, I was also informed that I would need to replace the front bearing plates as they are wearing out. The good news is that the steering shaft is covered under my extended warranty but the bad

Car Counselor BRIAN TURNER

news is that the front bearing plates are not. My concern is that this seems to be, in my mind quite a repair job for a vehicle that is only seven-years-old. May I please ask for your advice and feedback on this issue and should this matter be pursued further. Any further information required will be certainly provided. Respectfully TM” I got some clarification from TM because it wasn’t exactly clear from this letter which part was being recommended for replacement. It turns out it was the front strut bearing plates otherwise known as a strut mounts. On most frontwheel drive vehicles the front strut/ spring assemblies turn with the steering wheel and bearings are required to reduce wear and ease the force required. While this isn’t an everyday repair for a seven-year-old vehicle, it’s not uncommon either. TM was good enough to provide details on the price quote from his dealership service department and while the labour charges were fair, the parts from Toyota were a little high at $305 each. I found a quality aftermarket unit made by Munroe, a leading name in auto parts, for about $137 each and let

our reader know about this. The other question I suggested be raised with the shop was the urgency of this repair. Strut bearings can cause noises long before they become a safety or function issue and if the noise isn’t unbearable perhaps the repair could be put off. We ran into this gem at our shop recently and I thought it was worth passing along. One of the most popular accessories for vehicles these days are vent visors (those smoke-coloured or chrome finished plastic trims that are applied to door tops to prevent rain or snow from getting in if the windows are open slightly). There are two basic versions of these visors; those that apply directly to the outside surface of the upper door frame and those that are inserted into the channels that the window glass runs up into. The latter is preferred by most drivers because it gives the vehicle a more finished look. However, before you try to install this version on a new vehicle, check first to see if it has auto-reverse windows. This

safety feature for power windows will automatically stop and reverse a closing window glass if there’s an obstruction (say a child’s hand) in the way. The vent visors that are inserted into the window channels provide just such an obstruction and if you hit the autoclose switch, the window will reopen itself time after time. If your vehicle has this auto-reverse feature and you want vent visors, you’ll have to go with the external-mount types. If you have any questions, opinions, or stories on anything automotive please drop me a line: by email to emc@perfprint.ca or directly to bjoeturner@hotmail.com listing ‘Question for the Car Counselor’ on the subject line or by post to Record News Communications, 5 Lorne St., P.O. Box 158, Smiths Falls, ON K7A 4T1). When using regular mail, please supply a phone number if you seek direct contact (due to volume I can’t always promise replies). Yours in service Brian Turner

Government cuts to have big implications for all Ontario Waterway communities Parks Canada for its continued efforts to preserve and present the Rideau Canal UNESCO World Heritage Site but we are increasingly concerned about the future operating schedules of the Rideau Waterway and the cuts to interpretive programs at lock stations,” said Anne-Marie Forcier, executive director of the Rideau Heritage Route and Great Waterway board of director. “The Rideau is an iconic tourism asset with the potential to be much more of a significant driver of International visitation. The Canadian Tourism Commission’s Signature Experience program is anxiously looking forward to welcoming some new Rideau based programs but the current uncertainty of the waterway’s future is threatening this development,” Forcier added. “The impact of the cost-cutting measures would have devastating effects on the Rideau communities, tourism operators and stakeholders that depend on the Rideau.” Libby Smith, executive director of the South Eastern Ontario Tourism Organization, The Great Waterway, said “based on our 2012 visitor tracking results, tourists have already expressed concern about hours of operation and fees along the Rideau Canal. Uncertainty surrounding this popular and much loved waterway will cause our tourists to vacation elsewhere which would be a loss for our tourists and devastating for the economy of our region. We are hopeful that Minister Kent will lead the process with a long term strategy for sustainability of the Rideau.” For more information on the work done by the South Eastern Tourism Organization, The Great Waterway, please visit their website: www.thegreatwaterway.com.

EMC News – The Government of Canada has proposed significant cutbacks to the operations of the Trent-Severn and Rideau Canal which imposes a negative impact causing both immediate and devastating results to communities along these waterways. Seven of the 13 tourism regions in Ontario are directly affected by these cuts and are alarmed by the possibility that the Government of Canada would consider costcutting measures without first considering the devastating implications for the communities, tourism operators and other businesses that depend upon these waterways. Regional Tourism Organizations 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12, who depend upon these waterways as significant economic, heritage, and recreational assets, have written a letter to Peter Kent, Minister of the Environment, asking him to reconsider these cuts and suspend planned changes to the operating hours of the Rideau and Trent-Severn waterways. Parks Canada has worked hard to make Ontario’s waterways iconic tourism assets that attract thousands of visitors each year. Their attention to canal infrastructure and customer service has helped make these waterways unique marine and heritage experiences enjoyed by tourists from near and afar. “It is important for the Regional Tourism Organizations affected by the proposed cuts work together ensuring a long-term sustainability strategy is top of mind for Minister Kent,” said Stephen Paul, chair of the South Eastern Ontario Tourism Organization, The Great Waterway. “The Rideau Canal attracts close to one million visitors each year and we thank

Jack the Giant Slayer a wonderful piece of fantasy MOVIE: Jack the Giant Slayer STARRING: Nicholas Hoult, Eleanor Tomlinson, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Ian McShane and Bill Nighy DIRECTOR: Brian Singer RATING: PG EMC Entertainment - Jack the Giant Slayer is a wonderful piece of fantasy. It’s imaginative, exciting, spectacular. Most of all, and most importantly, it’s fun. Giants are the stuff of stories. Parents tell the tales to entertain their children. Long ago it was said giants came down from their land in the sky to wreak havoc on the world of man. Then King Erik, using a magic crown, made the giants submit and sent them

back to their land in the clouds. That was long ago and the memory has faded into legend until a young man named Jack (Nicholas Hoult) comes into possession of some magic beans. During a storm a young woman comes to Jack’s door seeking shelter. The woman is Princess Isabelle (Eleanor Tomlinson) running away from an arranged marriage. Jack and Isabelle are just getting to know each other when a magic bean, accidentally dropped, becomes wet. A bean stalk explodes from the ground carrying the cabin and Isabella up to the clouds. Jack valiantly tries to save her but falls. When Jack comes to, he’s surrounded by the King’s Guardians and King Brahmwell (Ian McShane)

My Take MARK HASKINS

himself. Jack quickly explains, and then volunteers to help save Isabella. A rescue party is formed led by captain of the Guardians Sir Elmont (Ewan McGregor) and his men, with Jack and the princess’ fiancée Lord Roderick (Stanley Tucci). Though Roderick can’t be trusted. He secretly carries the magic crown and has

plans all his own. Jack the Giant Slayer is one of those films that gets all the little things right. To be sure, the big things are pretty good too. Things like the special effects, the giants themselves, the plot and the cast are all great. This is a clever re-telling of the classic fairy tale. But it is the little things like the subtle moments between Jack and Isabella, King Brahmwell standing with his men, Elmont ready to sacrifice himself, the little spots of humour here and there, the nastiness of the giants, and a multitude of other little things that make Jack such an enjoyable film. Nicholas Hoult is exactly how I would picture Jack from the fairy tales. Hoult is quick, clever, charming – ev-

erything Jack should be. In fact the entire cast is how I’d imagine them. Eleanor Tomlinson is the picture of a modern fairy tale heroine; beautiful, smart and courageous. Ewan McGregor is every inch the gallant knight. As McGregor is every inch the knight so too is Ian McShane every inch the king. Stanley Tucci plays the rotten-to-the-core villain beautifully, and I can think of no actor better to voice a man-eating giant than Bill Nighy. As the voice of General Fallon, leader of the giants, he sends a few chills down the spine. I thoroughly enjoyed Jack the Giant Slayer. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

Taxed like a Canadian on your U.S. property – a good thing

Donna Quince of PuppetDreamers has created a puppet, Lil’ Brett, above, which will aid the Carleton Place Drug Strategy Committee in delivering its message during school presentations. The puppet was named after committee member Nicole Pearson’s son, who lost his life to suicide six years ago and was the inspiration for Pearson’s decision to share her experience with others.

Drug strategy committee adopts puppet to help spread message at presentations By BRIAN TURNER

EMC News – The Carleton Place Drug Strategy Committee is once again in the middle of a busy year with demands for school presentations by committee member Nicole Pearson in high gear. The committee is a group of volunteers organized under the auspices of town council and works towards helping to reduce the risk associated with drug and substance abuse and misuse. Pearson works with stakeholders such as Open Doors for Lanark Children and Youth and local law enforcement teams to deliver relevant and critical information on these topics as well as suicide and mental health. At a recent meeting of the committee (held on the third Thursday of the month in Carleton Place) a proposal from Donna Quince of PuppetDreamers was reviewed. Quince, a former educator with over a decade of experience in teaching with puppets in the classroom, was interested in teaming up with Pearson and other members of the committee to help deliver school presentations. It was decided by the assembled members that using puppets might help to encourage student participation and help to dispel the stigma that often

accompanies discussions on the topics of drugs and suicide. Quince went so far as to create a puppet, Lil’ Brett, the lifesaver named after Pearson’s son who lost his life to suicide six years ago and was the impetus to start Pearson’s journey of sharing her experiences with others and the outreach campaign that has touched so many to date. The committee decided to proceed on a trial basis to integrate Quince’s creations into the school and other public presentations. Funding will come from a generous grant from Green Shield Canada Health Insurance. The group also decided to participate in the Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital’s first ever Community Health Fest on Saturday, March 23 at the Neelin Street Community Centre hall. An information booth will be available to answer questions from interested visitors and a seminar on the topics of substance abuse and misuse will be given and Quince’s puppets will make a guest appearance. Hope to see you there! For more information on the Carleton Place Drug Strategy Committee, visit www.cpdrugstrategy.ca. Brian Turner is chair of the Carleton Place Drug Strategy Committee.

If you already own, or are thinking about buying, a U.S. property, you’ll have lots of Canuck company. According to the U.S.-based National Association of Realtors, Canadians are the largest group of foreign buyers in the U.S., accounting for 24 per cent of international sales in 2012.* So, you’re making a popular choice when you purchase a U.S. property – and when it comes to paying the bills that come with it, being taxed like a Canadian is a good thing. Here’s why. • Know your ‘visit limits’ Most people think that if their U.S. stay is shorter than six months, they won’t have to file a U.S. tax return. But the formula is more complicated than that: When you reside in the U.S. for more than 182 days in the current year or exceed 182 days in combination with the current year, 1/3 of the days in the preceding year, and 1/6 of the days in the second preceding year, under most circumstances, you will be required to file a U.S. tax return. You may be able to avoid being deemed a U.S. ‘resident’ for tax purposes by filing a Closer Connection Exemption for Aliens (IRS form 8840) which provides proof that your economic

Manage Your Money and social ties (such as the location of your permanent home, family and business activities, banking relationships, and so on) are more significant to Canada than to the U.S. • Rent or not? If you intend to rent your property, you will be required to file a U.S. tax return and be subject to a 30 per cent withholding tax. The net rental income is also subject to Canadian tax less a Foreign Tax Credit for taxes paid in the U.S. • When you sell Canadians are taxed on their worldwide income – which means that if you decide to sell your U.S. property, the sale must be reported on your Canadian tax return and on a U.S. tax return. The full amount of any capital gain is taxable in the U.S. and you might also have to pay state tax, depending on where your property is located. If the sale price is north of $300,000, the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) imposes a withholding tax of 10 per cent on the gross amount of the sale. To prevent double taxation, Canada allows a Foreign Tax

Credit up to the amount of U.S. tax paid. • Gift and estate taxes and probate are different in the U.S. and there may be Canadian taxation, as well, which could complicate passing your property to your kids. Taxes are only one of the many things you need to consider when you own a cross-border property. That’s why you should talk to your professional advisor about the best ownership strategies for you. *National Association of Realtors, Profile of International Buying Activity 2012, www.

Contribute to community cairn By TARA GESNER tgesner@perfprint.ca

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Carleton Place Coun. Gary Strike has an important message for local residents planning a trip: return home with any-sized clean stone, no earth attached. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to add your stone to the cairn at St. James Park when it is restored,â&#x20AC;? he said. A cairn is a man-made pile/stack of stones. It usually varies in size and complexity, and uses may include landmarks and monuments. Strike, in a telephone interview with the Canadian Gazette EMC on Monday (March 4), said the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cairn is falling apart at the base. Repairs to the structure are estimated to cost in the region of $3,100. Strike said the cairn comes under Joanne Hendersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jurisdiction. She is the municipalityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manager of recreation and culture. At present the cairn is made up of stones from 16 different countries, including the former communist Russia (white stone), China and South Africa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One unique stone on the back side has barb wire through it, along with a plate and a serial number,â&#x20AC;? said Strike. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It came from the Berlin Wall,â&#x20AC;? which was torn down in 1989. There used to be a plaque affixed to the cairn, but it had to be removed due to weather damage. Going forward, the councillor is hoping to secure stones from each of Carleton Placeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sister cities: Franklin, Tennessee (twinned in 2005) and Comrie, Scotland (twinned in 1992). â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would also like to see stones

The cairn sits covered in snow in St. James Park, located on Bell Street in Carleton Place. from places like the Rockies, Niagara Falls, Grand Canyon and Yellowstone National Park,â&#x20AC;? he said. When the condition of the cairn was brought up at a previous council meeting, Strike suggested the collection of additional rocks. His fellow councillors liked the idea. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So far we have received seven new stones,â&#x20AC;? he said. Mayor Wendy LeBlanc and her husband (Frank LeBlanc) brought one back from Vermont. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My daughter (Stacey Strike)

brought one back from Melbourne, Australia, which is where she lives,â&#x20AC;? said Strike. Other stones have come from Coun. Doug Black (South Africa), Coun. Louis Antonakos (Greece), Business Improvement Association (BIA) coordinator Cathie McOrmond (Dartmouth, Nova Scotia) and John and Isabelle Southwell (Israel, Egypt and Turkey). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Brooke and Ruth McNabb are going to bring me back a stone from base camp at (Mount) Everest,â&#x20AC;? said Strike. Carleton Placeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cairn will be unveiled in the summer of 2014. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you have a stone or bring one back from your destination, please bring it to the town hall with a written description of where it is from,â&#x20AC;? said Strike. He added pictures of the cairnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s four sides would be taken, recording them on a plaque. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even if we get duplicates we will place them in the cairn,â&#x20AC;? said Strike. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will try and keep track of where the stones are placed in the cairn and record where they are from and who brought them back.â&#x20AC;? The international cairn is just one more important project championed by Strike. He is affectionately known as a flag aficionado. For years his special, irreplaceable flags have shown support for the men and women that place themselves in harms way for all Canadians. St. James Park is located on Bell Street.

EMC Events – There was a full schedule of events at this year’s March Meltdown in Beckwith Township. The Beckwith Youth Committee (BYC) hosted the fun event on Saturday, March 2. From top to bottom: James Drapeau and Kobe Blackburn collect snow; Jessica Taylor had the best pot of red, taking home first place in the popular chili cook-off. In addition to bragging rights, she took home a trophy; the weather was perfect for Cliff Young of Spencerville who gave attendees sleigh rides.

Many owl sightings in area over past month Strictly for the Birds LYNDA C. BENNETT

three weeks ago. It tried to catch one of the little birds but missed. However, that same day, a Red-tailed Hawk came into the yard and successfully snatched a Mourning Dove for its meal. A new bird news reporter, Travis Fitzgerald of Lake Park Road, sent an email with a happy story of a pair of Northern Cardinals that have been coming to his feeders for three weeks now. He also has Dark-eyed Juncos, Black-capped Chickadees, and Whitebreasted Nuthatches that come to dine. A gentleman from Appleton reported seeing a Common Merganser on the Mississippi River last month. Stuart Lackey, Old Perth Road, related a tale of an owl that took shelter in his auger. It did not survive. From the size, it likely was a Saw-whet Owl. Please call Lynda Bennett at 613256-5013 or email bennett@magma. ca with your bird reports.

EMC Lifestyle – Winter has its hold on us, and raptors are more visible than in spring. Tim Pullen called, reporting a Bald Eagle at Highway 7 and Tatlock Road, Feb. 17. My neighbours, Sylvia and David, telephoned regarding a Bald Eagle adult, being chased by a bird of similar size, but without white head and tail. They asked what might this bird be. Checking my references, the other bird was a juvenile, likely a second-year bird. In Carleton Place, a Barred Owl was reported by George Sinfield. The owl was quietly sitting in a tree. Observed Feb. 18, Maryanne and Brian McGruther were able to watch a Snowy Owl that was perched on a pole along Fallowfield Road, just outside Lanark County. In Mississippi Mills, Mary and Howard Robinson took a picture of a Barred Owl perched in their yard, at dusk, Feb. 14. The owl was listening for dinner to stir under the snow cover. The third week of February, Ken Allison observed a Golden Eagle near Union Hall. Pat and Hilderic Browne have wild turkeys in their yard on Bennies Corners Road as well. I met Joan and Orville Tosh as they were entering a store. Joan described a Northern Shrike that came to their yard

Naismith Museum to be featured at Final 8 menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball tournament By TIFFANY LEPACK tlepack@perfprint.ca

EMC Sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The best university basketball players in Canada will â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;travelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to Ottawa this week and they will see a touch of Almonte. The 2013 Canadian Interuniversity Sport Final 8 Menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Basketball Championship will be held at Scotiabank Place in Kanata March 8 to 10 and the Dr. James Naismith Basketball Museum will have a presence at the event. The museum will have an exhibit table set up on the 100 level concourse near the Gate 2 entrance. It will include banners depicting the life of Dr. James Naismith, the founder of basketball, a wooden replica of the YMCA where the first game was held and other items from the museum. Stephanie Kolsters, museum manager the Dr. James Naismith Museum, thinks it is an excellent opportunity to get the museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name out there.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are going for the exposure and hope people will want to get involved with the foundation,â&#x20AC;? said Kolsters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would be nice to get some new blood into the foundation.â&#x20AC;? There will also be a special guest at the event with a connection to Almonte; Dr. James Naismithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grandson Jim will be there. Jim was invited to the tournament by a Carleton University supporter and is looking forward to the tournament. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a chance to be acquainted with the Canadian game so close to where my grandfather grew up,â&#x20AC;? said Jim. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was too young to know him and it is a great opportunity to learn about him. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m fascinated by him.â&#x20AC;? Jim thinks his grandfather would be pleased with the tournament with so many young people benefiting from the game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think he would be most interested and involved with the game,â&#x20AC;? said Jim.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I went to watch the Carleton and University of Ottawa womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game on Saturday night and I think he would be interested in the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game as well as the Final 8.â&#x20AC;? The Carleton University Ravens are hosting the tournament and the team has qualified to play in the championship. They are also the defending national champions. Jennifer Brenning is the director of the department of recreation of athletics at Carleton University and made the call to the museum inviting them to attend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we should be celebrating the fact that the Ottawa Valley is the birthplace of basketball. People are aware itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Canadian but that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s local is something to celebrate,â&#x20AC;? said Brenning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Other than the (Toronto) Raptors this is the highest level of basketball in Canada. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to celebrate the local history at the highest level.â&#x20AC;?

Brenning is hoping to put the spotlight on Jim while he is at the tournament. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are looking to try and interview him and invite him on the Jumbotron, so people know the grandson of Dr. James Naismith is at the game,â&#x20AC;? said Brenning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are certainly looking to recognize heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at the tournament.â&#x20AC;? Kolsters is optimistic for the chance to represent the museum at the tournament as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the event is great for us to have the opportunity to show what we have and that it is more than just a ball is great,â&#x20AC;? said Kolsters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Scotiabank Place and Carleton University have both been awesome.â&#x20AC;? Brenning thinks people need to discover that basketball, not just hockey, is one of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think from the Canadian perspective we always talk about hockey but we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talk about how basketball is

one of our national sports,â&#x20AC;? said Brenning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We talk a lot about Ottawa being hockey nation but we are a basketball nation, too.â&#x20AC;? Kolsters hopes the tournament display will open the eyes of the youth at the tournament as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you want to learn about him, come out to the museum. If we can reach kids who want to learn about the man, basketball is key to hook them inâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;? said Kolsters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think people need to discover that Naismith did invent the game and they need to know what kind of person he was when he created the game. He was very humble and a good Christian man.â&#x20AC;? Naismith was born in Almonte in 1861, in 1891, while he was a professor at Springfield College there was a need to create an interesting indoor game. On Dec. 21, 1891 the first basketball game is played and by January 1892 the game had become a success.

Canadians win two on weekend, battle for top spot goes down to wire By JEFF MAGUIRE

EMC Sports – It has been the most competitive season in memory in the Central Canada Hockey League (CCHL). So no one should be surprised the battle for the top four positions and home ice advantage in the opening round of the playoffs is going right to the wire. Carleton Place Canadians won both their weekend games but remain in a dead heat with Cornwall Colts for second place overall in the 12-team CCHL. Canadians downed visiting Hawkesbury Hawks 5-2 Sunday afternoon. The setback left the Hawks’ hopes of catching the eighth and final playoff place hanging in the balance. Sunday night Colts scored two third period goals to tie visiting Smiths Falls Bears and force overtime. Cornwall won the contest 4-3 in a shootout to stay level with Carleton Place. Each team has two games left. Canadians may have to win both their remaining contests in order to retain second place and a berth against the seventh place side in the quarterfinal playoffs. It won’t be an easy task as both are against clubs who are fighting for a top four finish and the all-important home ice advantage in the opening round. Carleton Place travels to Brockville tomorrow night (Friday) for a crucial contest with Braves. Brockville began the week in seventh place overall. But in the highly

EMC Sports – The Carleton Place Jr. A Canadians won 5-3 over the Hawkesbury Hawks in CCHL action at home Sunday afternoon. Here, Canadians Tyson Stewart and Alex Frere tangle with Hawks William Plamondon and Yanik Laliberte. competitive Robinson Division race they were just six points behind Carleton Place and Cornwall who share top spot. Braves had three games remaining including a visit to Kanata Tuesday. That face-off was critical to Kanata’s hopes of holding Hawkesbury at bay and retaining the final post season place. Smiths Falls is third in the division

and sixth overall with 74 points. Looking at the standings Monday, Carleton Place head coach Jason Clarke said he expects to face either Brockville or Smiths Falls in the opening round of the playoffs. That could still change, depending on the many variables which exist during this, the final week of the long CCHL campaign. No matter who Canadians meet in

the quarterfinals Clarke expects an all-out battle. “It won’t be easy. All of the (playoff) teams are pretty equal. I think we have as good a shot as anyone though.” As for the final week of the regular season Clarke adds, “Every point counts right now.” He is pleased with his club’s performance as the season quickly

winds down. Carleton Place has won three in a row and 14 of their last 18 league games. “We played really well against Hawks yesterday (Sunday). I was very happy with our goaltending on the weekend.” “But you would think they (Hawks) would be focused on hockey and fighting for points instead of just fighting,” he added, referring to the penalty-filled contest which saw 38 infractions called. “I really don’t understand it,” Clarke mused. Coming off weekend wins over Hawks and last place Kemptville 73’s, Canadians’ playoff fate remains in their own hands. “We rested some guys on the weekend and that is good. I expect everybody will be ready for the playoffs,” Clarke outlines. With the playoff race so close, very few people, especially league coaches, are prepared to make predictions. “I wouldn’t want to predict how it will finish. We won’t know until Sunday,” says Pembroke Lumber Kings’ coach and general manager Scott Mohns. Monday morning Mohns’ team had 78 points, just one behind Carleton Place and Cornwall and three back of league leading Ottawa Junior Senators. Sens and Kings stand 1-2 in the Yzerman Division race.

HOCKEY From page A/CP21

Ottawa appears to have first place overall sewn up. Junior Sens have three games remaining, all against nonplayoff teams. With one game left Pembroke can’t catch the leaders but they have a good shot at third or fourth place overall and home ice in the first round of the playoffs. Meanwhile Nepean Raiders, who stand fifth with 76 points, sixth place Smiths Falls and seventh place Brockville are all in contention to earn home ice advantage in what promises to be a thrilling post season. With two games left Bears have 74 points. Braves have accumulated 73 points but have three games remaining. Brockville head coach and general manager Jason Hawkins agrees with Clarke and Mohns in their assessment of the current situation. “There are so many variables right now. We will know Sunday how it shapes up,” Hawkins told the CanadianGazette EMC Monday. “It all makes for what should be a really interesting week. I wouldn’t want to make a bet on who will finish where.” “The first round is going to be tough no matter who we face. No one is completely dominant this year,” Hawkins notes. Fight-marred win Sunday afternoon the second place Canadians moved within two points of idle Ottawa in the overall standings by defeating Hawkesbury in a fight-marred contest. In the process they dealt Hawks’ playoff hopes a further blow, sending Hawkesbury to their third straight defeat. Right winger Luke Kasteel led the Carleton Place attack, netting twice to reach 13 goals and 28 points in 32 appearances. Second year player Stephen Baylis, an 18-year-old Carleton Place native, set up a pair of goals as did winger Kevin Dufour. The home team led 3-0 after 20 minutes with Alex Frere and Lucas Gonu, during a man advantage situation, also scoring goals. Hawks’ centre Roman Ammirato triggered his first of two powerplay goals for

He turned aside 38 shots in a losing cause. Each side was assessed seven penalties. Stephen Cooney of 73’s and Canadians’ defenceman Luke Formica were handed 10 minute misconducts following an incident with 59 seconds left in the game. Cooney was tagged for inciting an opponent and Formica for head contact.

The 19-year-old left winger from Pembroke added back-toback strikes, nine minutes and five seconds apart in the second period to provide the winning margin.

MVFN visit Cuba during fourth international field trip By MARY and HOWARD ROBINSON

EMC News – Seventeen members of the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists (MVFN) recently returned from the club’s fourth international field trip, which was to observe the wonders of the natural world including some Canadian-born birds overwintering in a warmer climate in Cuba. Travelling during the first two weeks of February, the group visited the eastern provinces of Cuba, complementing the 2010 trip to the western provinces. Arriving in the city of Holguin, we met our Cuban tour guide and bus driver. We knew we were off to a good start as our guide was well known to some of us from our previous trip and the driver turned out to be a keen birder. Barely away from the airport, soaring turkey vultures and white cattle egrets were the first birds we spotted. These common birds were seen many times, but thanks to continuous observation and the early morning bird walks led by our Canadian leader David Milsom, many more interesting and beautiful birds were observed throughout the trip – about 116 different species in total. Highlights included endemic birds such as the Cuban Trogon, the Cuban Tody, the Cuban Pygmy Owl and the Cuban Emerald Hummingbird; spectacular birds such as the Great Lizard Cuckoo, the Magnificent Frigatebird and a barn owl feeding its chicks; and many birds that will head north soon such as the her-

In addition to birds, we saw lizards, beautiful butterflies, lovely orchids and other flowers, numerous palm trees and other semi-tropical vegetation. Our first destination was La Mensura National Park in the high plateau of Nipe where we noticed the changing vegetation as we travelled ever higher through the mountainous rain forest area. Our first nature-walk included sightings of many local birds and views of the spectacular

Guayabo Waterfall, one of the highest in Cuba. Our next destination was Baracoa on the eastern Cuban Atlantic Coast, one of the oldest colonial towns in Cuba. The road leading to Baracoa was challenging, to say the least, due to huge potholes, wash-outs and rocks from previous rainy seasons. Baracoa was the landing point of Christopher Columbus and the first settlement of the Spanish Conquistadores in Cuba. Our hotel in Baracoa was situated high on a hill over-

looking the harbour and ocean with a terrific view of the flat topped mountain of El Yunque. From this base, we visited Humboldt National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to 30 percent of Cuba’s endemic plants. Here we had an adventurous nature walk, climbing up and down hills, some slippery with red mud, and crossing a rapidly moving river four times. Helping each other on the crossings, we survived with only one dunking. Our efforts were rewarded when

the elusive ‘world’s smallest frog’ – so small it sits on an adult’s pinky fingernail. Some other activities in the Baracoa area included a nature walk to explain the chocolate making process; a rowboat ride to a local farm where we ate fresh fruit from the trees and were shown how to climb palm trees; and a tour of the natural history museum. From Baracoa we took a spectacular drive over the mountains and down to the Caribbean sea and surrounding countryside. In the rain shadow of the Sierra Maestra Mountains, we visited the nearby Bacanao National Park – a parched strip of land declared a biosphere reserve by UNESCO. On the way to Santiago de Cuba, we visited a cactus garden. In this lovely city we learned more about the history of Cuba and toured the fort of El Moro, initially built in the 1600s to guard the entrance to Santiago de Cuba Harbour from pirates.

While driving throughout the ever-changing countryside from Santiago to Chivirico, we noted with despair the remaining damage from Hurricane Sandy which had devastated that area in the fall of 2012. At our resort on the Caribbean coast we had two glorious days to relax, and swim or snorkel in the ocean at a nearby coral reef. Another drive to the mountains led us to the famous El Cobre Shrine dedicated to the Virgin of Charity. Our stay at the El Salton Lodge was exceptional. Here we had excellent views of a Cuban Pygmy Owl, a Louisiana waterthrush, Cuban Grassquits, red-legged honey creepers, and more. Other activities were walking in the mountainous terrain, spontaneously singing “the hills are alive with the sound of music,” and being introduced to local villagers living in the mountains. Our next destination was See CUBA page 42

One of the many interesting sights the group encountered was the smallest frog in the world (Eleutheo-dactilys Iberia) which is 10 millimetres in length and only found in the Humbolt UNESCO Bio-sphere in Cuba.

CUBA From page 41

the city of Bayamo, founded in the early 1500s. It was here that the national anthem of Cuba was first sung at the church near the main square. And it was here that our Cuban guide and bus driver sang their national anthem for us and we in turn stood in the bus and sang â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for them â&#x20AC;&#x201C; another special memory. Following a tour of the city of Bayamo, we headed into the Sierra Maestra mountain range where Fidel Castroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1950s revolutionary army built its headquarters high in the mountains and deep in the forest. We had an exciting hairpin turn car ride up the mountain and then hiked another few kilometres over rough terrain to Fidelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rustic camp buildings â&#x20AC;&#x201C; now a museum for the Cuban people and only to be treated with great respect. After two wonderous days in the Sierra Maestra mountains we returned to Holguin in preparation for

our trip home to Toronto the next day. Of course we had a party on our last night to thank our Cuban friends and to celebrate our many experiences and new or renewed friendships. There are indeed many more memories: street scenes in the villages and towns; old cars and other interesting vehicles; rural houses with goats, pigs and chickens nearby; Cuban art, music and food; children in school uniforms; the Spanish language; and, of course, the overall resourcefulness of the Cuban people. We have only touched on a few memories and each of us has our own experiences to ponder. We all owe our thanks to MVFNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cliff Bennett for organizing the trip through Worldwide Quest tours, and to Quest leader Dave Milsom, an excellent birder and naturalist, who both made our trip to Cuba a truly wondrous experience. Mary and Howard Robinson are members of the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists.

March is Easter Seals Month EMC News – March is Easter Seals Month, Easter Seals Ontario’s annual fundraising and awareness campaign for kids with physical disabilities. The annual campaign focuses on raising awareness of the ongoing issues and needs of children with physical disabilities and how people can lend their support in their own communities. Children and youth with physical disabilities face challenges on a daily basis, including issues surrounding accessibility and lack of opportunities to socialize and participate in recreational activities. For many, this results in feelings of social isolation and lack of self-esteem. For families, the cost of mobility and communication equipment is staggering and expenses can extend beyond their financial capabilities. In 2012, almost half of the families requesting assistance from Easter Seals had an annual household income under $40,000. The financial strain of raising a child with a physical disability can often mean that children have to go without the essential equipment they need. “Easter Seals programs and services focus on helping young people with physical disabilities experience greater independence and success,” said Carol Lloyd, president and chief executive officer, Easter Seals Ontario. “Our main priority is to provide financial assistance to help children with physical disabilities get essential mobility equipment they need. Our fully accessible summer

camping program gives kids the opportunity to feel accepted and participate in a wide range of activities, just like other kids.” Easter Seals Ontario also offers scholarships to encourage students with physical disabilities to pursue and help pay for post secondary education. Thanks to a generous donation from TD Bank Group, Easter Seals is proud to introduce the new TD Scholarship for Easter Seals Youth Fund, which will be officially announced on the upcoming Easter Seals Telethon broadcast this Sunday, March 10 on CBC. Some of Easter Seals’ annual fundraising efforts, includes the launch of the 13th annual Easter Seals Paper Eggs campaign with retailers across Ontario such as Booster Juice, TSC, Sobeys, Foodland, FreshCo, Money Mart, Price Chopper and Gateway Newsstands. Shoppers will be invited to purchase a paper egg for $2 in retail stores, which will be displayed instore for the duration of the three-week campaign. For more than 90 years, Easter Seals Ontario has been helping children and youth with physical disabilities experience freedom, independence and sense of accomplishment. Easter Seals, a registered Canadian charity, relies fully on the generosity of donors and sponsors to be able offer its programs and services.

EMC News – Bayshore HealthCare, Canada’s largest national provider of community health care services, is proud to announce it has achieved Platinum Club member status with Canada’s Best Managed Companies program by retaining its best managed designation for seven consecutive years. This national distinction recognizes Bayshore’s consistency, commitment and ability to be flexible in a changing marketplace. “Bayshore is committed to demonstrating innovation and leadership in the Canadian home health care industry. Achieving Platinum Club member status recognizes this commitment and acknowledges our continued success,” said Stuart Cottrelle, president of Bayshore HealthCare. “As a company we are dedicated to continuously evolving with society. With an aging demographic and a greater reliance on home care services, Bayshore is looking to the future to ensure we have the right systems in place to continue to offer quality care and services that our clients and their families expect.” Bayshore’s success and recognition as one of Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies rests on four key business principles: a culture of commitment; a diversi-

fied business model; a strong national presence; and ensuring its branches are part of the communities they serve. Of these four principles, a culture of commitment has been the biggest factor in the company’s success. “What sets Bayshore apart is that our dedicated team demonstrates a passion and commitment to consistently go the extra mile to help the people they serve in our community,” says Lori Lachance, area director for Bayshore Home Health Smiths Falls office. “It is their hard work and tremendous dedication that makes Bayshore the very best company it can be. Their commitment to innovation, drive and leadership has truly earned Bayshore Platinum Club member status.” “Companies that have earned Platinum Club status in Canada’s Best Managed Companies program have shown a strong sense of vision and demonstrated a continued commitment to their corporate values,” added Jon Hountalas, executive vice-president, business banking, CIBC. “Platinum Club winners are examples of excellence in Canadian business.” The 2012 winners of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies award, along with the Gold Standard winners, Requalified and Platinum Club members will be

honoured at the annual Best Managed gala in Toronto on April 16. On the same date, the Best Managed symposium will address leading-edge business issues that are key to the success of today’s business leaders. About Canada’s Best Managed Companies Canada’s Best Managed Companies continues to be the mark of excellence for Canadian-owned and managed companies with revenues over $10 million. Every year since the launch of the program in 1993, hundreds of entrepreneurial companies have competed for this designation in a rigorous and independent process that evaluates their management skills and practices. The awards are granted on four levels: 1) Best Managed winner (one of the 50 new winners selected each year); 2) Requalified member (repeat winners retain the Best Managed designation for two additional years, subject to annual operational and financial review); 3) Gold Standard winner (after three consecutive years of maintaining their Best Managed status, these winners have demonstrated their commitment to the program and successfully reapplied for the designation. Companies may requalify for two additional years, subject to annual operational and

financial review; 4) Platinum Club member (winners that maintain Best Managed status for a minimum of six consecutive years). About Bayshore Bayshore HealthCare is one of the country’s leading providers of home and community health care services and a Canadianowned company. Its services are purchased by government care programs, insurance companies, workers’ compensation boards, health care organizations, the corporate sector and the public. The Bayshore brand extends across four business divisions: Bayshore Home Health (medical and non-medical home care and staffing services), Bayshore Specialty Rx (specialty pharmacy, infusion and pharmaceutical patient support services), Bayshore Therapy & Rehab (physiotherapy and rehabilitation services) and Bayshore Dialysis (dialysis centers). The company’s goal is to enhance the quality of life, wellbeing, dignity and independence of Canadians of all ages.

Supporting your young leader today can help raise healthy, caring, responsible children and build a brighter future.

Focus on what children do right instead of what they do wrong.

Remember that mistakes are part of growing

Let’s notice when our children do well. Let’s tell them that we admire their talents, abilities, and manners; their friendship skills, intelligence and kindness. Let’s talk to them about the good things we observe in them and encourage them in their activities and interests. Giving them encouragement today can help raise healthy, caring, responsible children and build a brighter future.

As parents we know we are role models for our kids and may feel as if we can’t make mistakes. Well guess what? We all mess up sometimes. It’s okay – it’s even normal. Know when to say you’re sorry - be brave enough to try again and remind kids that mistakes are part of living and growing.

Teach young people to be responsible for their thoughts, words & actions. When you involve children in activities with other adults who model good positive values, you can show them how to develop these values for themselves. Showing them positive values today can help raise healthy, caring, responsible children and build a brighter future.

We can help raise healthy, caring, responsible children and build a brighter future.

Be a safety leader for seasonal workers A recent report from the Canadian Agricultural Safety Association affirms that 11 percent of those killed in agricultural accidents between 1990 and 2008 were hired workers. They might be keen and raring to go but summer students, transient hired hands, migrant workers, and even family members are all at risk of workplace accidents because of inexperience or language barriers. They are not always familiar with standard farm safety measures, and they may hesitate to ask questions. That’s why it is essential to be a proactive leader in the barn and in the fields. About three-quarters of farm fatalities are machine related. Tractor rollovers, machine entanglements, and run-overs are the leading causes. Before they start working, employers need to inquire about the specific abilities of their hired workers to use farm equipment. Depending on their experience and permits, it is essential to provide suitable training and ongoing coaching in the safe use of all farm vehicles and machinery. It is good to start every season with an orientation that involves all employees, old and new. Delegating orientation components to experienced workers can be a way to make sure that even old hands are still fresh on safety procedures. An orientation should include a walking tour of the facilities that highlights all potential dangers as well as all the safety information you have posted on the walls at various work sites. Be prepared to bridge the language gap with written material on farm safety procedures in the languages of any migrant workers. Check with your regional farm safety organization for assistance in this regard. But do keep in mind that the most effective learning will happen on the job, by demonstrating, explaining, and follow-up coaching. Unscramble the first four words in each set of scrambles. Then use the circled letters to unscramble the final word. Some of the words may unscramble into more than one word, but only one word is related to the puzzle.

EMC Lifestyle - In June 1977, Ken Bauman of Kincardine, Ontario purchased a white 1976 MGB Tourer Mk II Roadster/convertible with 18,267 miles on the odometer. He writes: â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the early 1960s, I owned a 1959 MGA, but marriage and two children required more practical transportation.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Later, with children grown up, the lure of more â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;sportyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; transportation returned at age 45. A woman near Hanover, Ontario, was selling a 1976 MGB. I bought it for $4,100, plus $280 in sales tax. â&#x20AC;&#x153;According to the door plate, my MGB was built in November 1975 by British Leyland Motors in England to export standards (left-hand-drive) for North America. MG was celebrating its 50th anniversary in 1975 and the dashboard has a gold â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;1925-1975â&#x20AC;&#x2122; medallion, indicating they were still using up prior years parts.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was originally purchased on May 14, 1976, from Kitchener British Cars Limited in Kitchener, Ontario. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It became my only vehicle for the first four years. After the winter of â&#x20AC;&#x2122;77-â&#x20AC;&#x2122;78, I purchased a used hard top for $90, which helped the underpowered MG heater. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I also had a $50 chrome rack installed on the trunk lid. Obsolete Automotive in Sarnia, Ontario, was my source for other needed repair parts and upgrades through the years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By the spring of 1981, the front fenders and side rocker panels were riddled with rust and the paint needed upgrading. I now had an everyday â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;rideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and so (recommended by a friend who had a vintage Rolls Royce repainted), I took the car

Canada seen here with some of her former Homestay stu- Homestay is currently looking for host families. that,” she explained. When all members of the family get together, her Homestay family and her children and grandchildren, “they get along just great.” The Homestay experience is one she would recommend to anybody. “You don’t know what you are missing,” she explained. She has had a great experience with each of her students, including one who graduated high school with a 98.2 per cent average and received recognition from the Governor General. “They are extremely polite. If they say they will be home at 9, they will be home at 9,” Foley said. “Their word means a lot. They are honest kids.” On top of being good kids, Foley explained they are hard workers. Her role has been to be there for support, as well. “I keep involved with the school work, interviews and programs,” she said. Parents of the students have also kept

in touch, one father phones Foley from Korea once a month. She has also found a program where she is able to chat online with parents. The program translates the language for her so there are no barriers. “I can’t say enough good things about this program,” she beamed. The Upper Canada Leger Centre for Education and Training (UCLCET) partners with Canada Homestay International to offer host families to those students. Canada Homestay International is a subcontractor for the school board and other school boards across the country. The UCLCET administers the Upper Canada District School Board’s (UCDSB) International Education program and this year has placed more than 180 long-term full semester students and over 250 short-term students from across the region. This is an opportunity for the international students to have a first hand view

of Canadian culture through their time in school and with their host families. The same can be said for the host families. They will share in a unique cultural experience as well through providing a short term home for their student. While this is a fairly new program and venture for the school board, having only started mid-last decade, it is growing in leaps and bounds each year. Students are enrolling in this program from countries such as Brazil, Columbia, Mexico, Germany, France, Korea, Japan, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Spain, Turkey and others. The students aren’t paid to come to Canada; they pay tuition fees and other costs for the opportunity to come here. In some countries, such as Spain, if the student’s family cannot afford the endeavour, their home country provides scholarship opportunities. CHI’s function is to provide a safe

EMC News – A wide smile and a twinkle in her eye is the reaction Bev Foley has when speaking of her experience with the Canada Homestay International program. Since 2007, the Athens resident has been welcoming international students into her home, through the program, and “I love it, I just love it,” she exclaims. And the students do as well, one of her former students, Yu Zhao, who was at her home for a visit recently, described, “This is my Canadian family. It is just like I come back to my home.” Foley has had students stay throughout the years from as short a visit as a week up to a two-year period. “They are truly family,” she said, noting she has stayed in touch with all of her students and even took trips to China and Korea, for a near 20 day-venture. Her trek took her from one end of China to the other, and she visited with several of her Homestay students’ families. “I would recommend it to anyone,” Foley said of the program. She said Nelson Williams, relationship manager for Canada Homestay International, Leeds Grenville region, “has been great. He is very good about placing students where he thinks they should go.” Just this past Christmas, Foley had to have open heart surgery. She had a triple bypass in December. Knowing she would have a house full of former students and her current student, she warned them that she needed the time to be quiet. “They cooked and they cleaned and they visited and they entertained,” she laughed. “It was a wonderful Christmas to remember.” Sitting back and “listening to their laughter,” she said is a good memory of the holiday, and in fact something she does often. The retired school teacher, having taught all grade levels from grade 1 to high school, enjoys “just to be able to sit back and listen to their fun and laughter.” Foley has two sons, two foster daughters and 20 grandchildren. Most of her children live hours away and having the Homestay students “fills a vacuum for

Renfrew Gun & Hunting Show returns March 9 and 10 Centre for Sustainable Watersheds moves from Portland to Perth By MARIAN ARBOUR

EMC Events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; As the days start to get longer and our tolerance of the cold and snow wanes, you know that spring is close. With spring, comes the start of Valley Outdoors Promotions Inc. show season. The Renfrew Gun & Hunting Show kicks off the upcoming show season, this Saturday and Sunday (March 9 and 10) at the Renfrew Armouries (115 Veteran Memorial Blvd.). This is the third year of the annual event and the show keeps getting better and better. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The two-day activity offers something for every individual who enjoys hunting or is interested in the sport of shooting,â&#x20AC;? said Dave Arbour, chief organizers of the venture.

and caring environment for the students while they stay in Canada. To provide them with supports and to have matched them effectively with a suitable host family. And host families are needed. Students come for sometimes as little as two weeks and as long as a school year. Some families have stayed in touch with their students and have even travelled abroad as they have kept their friendships alive. Families through the years have found hosting a student has reintroduced them to their communities as they have the opportunity to play tourist through the eyes of their young charges. The students attend school and are here to gain academic credit. Usually, they have an ESL (English as a second language) class as part of their course curriculum. Host families are care-

This year, the Renfrew Armouries will be full to capacity with new and used firearms, bows and hunting gear. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be disappointed,â&#x20AC;?

Admission to the show is just $6 with children under 12 admitted free when accompanied by an adult.

Spending money for the student is the responsibility of the student and their natural parents. However, most students when they come to Canada often spend their money on new technology, cell phones, and laptops. This includes items such as bicycles to get around, Williams noted. Host families ensure their students are treated as a member of the family and they partake in leisure activities in a nurturing family environment.
