RELAY FOR LIFE

EMC News – The students at Almonte District High School (ADHS), all 600 of them, have netted a huge victory for not only the school but the entire community. ADHS, led by four dedicated students, Laura Barrass, Shelby Featherston, Colleen Stratford-Kurus, and Margot Denis, won the high school Spread the Net Challenge, a charity started by CBC’s Rick Mercer and former politician Belinda Stronach. The aim of the charity is to raise money to purchase bed nets for children in Africa to help combat malaria. Each bed net costs $10 and the students were able to raise close to $6,000, making them the number one high school in the fundraising challenge across Canada and earning them a visit from Mercer on March 20. The well-known comedian was welcomed into the gym with a huge round of applause (and screams) and then addressed the students as a cameraman followed him around. He congratulated the students and told them the history of the project, including his experiences when he travelled to Africa with Stronach. “Your school raised over $5,000,” said Mercer to a huge eruption of cheers. “That’s tremendous, you should feel really good about that because you believed it was possible, you believed you could win this contest. “Five thousand dollars, that is 500 bed nets. If you look around this room that’s

the number of lives you have saved. Thank you for that.” The segment will air on

The Rick Mercer Report on April 2. All four of the girls

were very excited they raised $5,870, that they won and would be featured

on the show. “It is awesome I can’t believe for our size that we won,” said Stratford-Kurus. “Our small size played to our advantage as everyone knows everyone and they get excited with youth initiatives.” They are all extremely thankful to the members of the community who supported them and admit they could not have done it without that encouragement. “This community has always been good at coming together because we are all so tight knit,” said Denis. “It’s crazy for people from a small school to accomplish something like this. “It just shows that no matter the size of the town or school, you can still accomplish great things,” added Barrass. All of the girls have been watching The Rick Mercer Report since they were little and gathered together on March 19 to watch the official announcement. “It’s so hard to believe. We watched the show and we were like ‘We are going to be on the show!’” said Featherston. “To know that we can accomplish this coming from a small place is super satisfying.” They only found out a week before the show taping that they had won and Mercer would be coming to the school. “It’s been a whirlwind to pull everything together, the teachers really pulled up their socks to help us out,” said Stratford-Kurus.

Local farmers come together to challenge GM alfalfa EMC News – Local farmers are planning a day of action to combat their fears over genetically modified alfalfa. Farmers, led by Jeff Greenberg of Greenwood Organics in Tay Valley Township, will be converging on the Ottawa headquarters of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) offices on April 9. But their message will already have been heard in Ottawa when Greenberg and other farmers, members of the National Farmers’ Union’s Lanark County local, meet with Lanark, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington MP Scott Reid on April 5, to present a petition, and to air their side of the story. “We were quite pleased at his receptiveness,â€? said Greenberg of Reid’s decision to meet with them. For many farmers, alfalfa is an important commodity. “It adds a lot of proteins to grasses,â€? said Greenberg, making it especially good for dairy farmers for grass and hay for the winter. He estimates that as much as 85 per cent of hay in Ontario is comprised of mixed grasses, which includes alfalfa. While alfalfa is good for grasses, it is not so good for weeds. “It’s called a smother crop,â€? explained Greenberg. “It holds down the weeds.â€? As a result, there is oftentimes little reason to spray chemicals when alfalfa is around. But Greenberg is concerned that Monsanto Canada, working with Forage Genetics, is working on genetically modified alfalfa, which is resistant to weed killer, like Roundup. “It sounds very nice except alfalfa is a perennial plant,â€? said Greenberg. “Once it (the genetically modified alfalfa) it will cross contaminate,â€? with non-genetically modified alfalfa. “A farmer will not be able to look their customer in the eye and say ‘No, this is not genetically modified,’â€? said Greenberg. “Contamination is inevitable‌ It (Roundup resistant alfalfa) is not necessary. This (GM alfalfa) encourages more toxins to be put into the soil. That’s what Monsanto wants to do, to sell more chemicals. (But) people want a choice.â€? He pointed to what he saw happen when genetically modified flax was allowed to be grown – contamination. “Someone is trying to sell us something we don’t need,â€? said Greenberg. “Research is proving that GM foods are harmful,â€? he said, pointing to scientists who are looking at the issue and claim to have discovered that GM foods “create tumors in rats.â€? Mark Lynas was a former anti-GM food activist, but he turned his back on the cause during a speech at Oxford University, saying that “the GM debate is over.â€? “He says that the anti-GM food people

are anti-science,â€? said Greenberg, something the particularly rankles him because he was once a scientist himself, having spent 30 years in the biotechnology industry, the last 10 as an executive with the largest supplier of technology and tools to the pharmaceutical and agricultural industries, and research facilities. “I think that (assertion) is a crock.â€? A few years ago, a Stanford University study found that organic foods were no more or less nutritious than regularly-grown crops, that there were “no nutritional benefits to organic food,â€? said Greenberg. But while the media focused on this one part of the story, the “study of studies,â€? also found that “there were significantly more herbicides and pesticides in GM foods,â€? than those grown organically. However, he noted that was heartened when a March 7 screening of the documentary “Genetic Roulette,â€? by Jeffrey M. Smith, author of Seeds of Deception, drew about 80 people in Almonte. Monsanto speaks Speaking from her office in Winnipeg, Trish Jordan, the public and industry affairs director for Monsanto Canada is not surprised with Greenberg’s concerns, but she is quick to point out that Monsanto and Forage Genetics International, “are currently working with the Canadian Seed Trade Association‌and additional stakeholders on the development of an agronomic stewardship and coexistence plan, prior to making a decision about commercially introducing Roundup ready alfalfa to the eastern Canadian dairy market,â€? she wrote in a follow-up email from the prairies, noting that a similar process in the United States reaped positive results for all involved. “We already have regulatory approval for Roundup ready alfalfa, back in 2005,â€? said Jordan. “It is not commercialized in Canada‌ Forage Genetics has not made any decision if they are going to commercially sell this product in Canada.â€? Monsanto is responsible for the regulatory process, “to ensure that any variety it may put up for sale is approved with the CFIA,â€? Jordan said. According to Monsanto, Roundup ready alfalfa is “a fully approved and regulated product in Canada and has completed all the necessary federal regulatory review requirements.â€? This review process involves not only looking at extensive data, but also in “assessing both the benefits and any potential risks associated with commercial introduction.â€? Jordan was adamant that “there can be some co-existence,â€? between genetically modified alfalfa and organic alfalfa, but just how that co-existence is still being worked on. In the U.S., she noted, Roundup ready alfalfa has been grown since 2002. “They developed a similar sort of existence

plan and it was well received,� said Jordan. Monsanto has been publishing “stakeholder updates,� since 2005 on the issue, since “it is very topical. A lot of people are talking about it.� The National Farmers’ Union (Lanark County local 310) will be holding a screening

of the documentary “Genetic Roulette,� by Jeffrey M. Smith, author of Seeds of Deception, at McMartin House, 125 Gore St. E., Perth, at 7 p.m. today (Thursday, March 28.) The event is free to all, and a discussion, hosted by Greenberg and Maureen Bostock, will follow.

Ministry approves board plan to introduce full-time kindergarten within UCDSB schools EMC News – The Ontario Ministry of Education has endorsed a plan by the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) to accelerate the introduction of full-time learning for kindergarten students. Starting this September, full-time kindergarten will be offered at all 64 elementary sites throughout our jurisdiction, said Valerie Allen, superintendent of the UCDSB. There are 63 elementary schools, and one junior kindergarten to grade 12 school that will offer the program. “We are so thrilled to be able to offer playbased learning – and all of the advantages that come with that – to children across our board,� said Allen. “Everyone gets it now!�

Research suggests that full-time learning in kindergarten contributes to school readiness, leads to improved literacy achievement, and levels the playing field for all learners. Schools will receive some funding to upgrade their educational materials in kindergarten and other resources to aid learning, and the Board will continue to put an emphasis on professional development for staff so our students get the best head start they can on their educational journey. The board is also working through its facilities department on a plan to upgrade classrooms where needed. Submitted by the Upper Canada District School Board.

United Counties reduce tax rate, approve 2013 budget March 21 EMC News – Leeds and Grenville ratepayers could see a decrease in their taxes after United Counties of Leeds and Grenville council voted to reduce the tax rate while passing the 2013 budget in a regular meeting on March 21. The United Counties reduced its tax rate by just under one per cent (.62) and will collect $32.5 million from property taxpayers in 2013. The budget is balanced, with expenditures and revenues at $103.3 million. Operations account for $82.9 million and capital expenditures $13.6 million. “Overall, I believe the budget is affordable for our residents and at the same time it allows for progress in the counties,� warden Ron Holman said. “We have addressed the increased need for allocating more money for public works infrastructure improvement,� Holman continued, noting the roads portion of the budget will see a two per cent increase, from $15.5 million last year to $15.8 million this year. “In the preparation of this

year’s budget we’ve had success in keeping costs under control in many areas. We will continue our efforts in 2013 to look for further opportunities to keep our costs low,� Holman said. Counties treasurer and director of corporate services, Nigel White said staff followed warden Holman and council’s direction to keep costs down while keeping services intact. “Council’s thrust was to keep the overall levy increase to 1.75 per cent for a total levy of $32.5 million,� White said. A residential property owner whose assessment was $100,000 in 2012 and 2013 will see a decrease of $2.33 in their property taxes for counties purposes and would pay $373.52 this year. The impact varies for each taxpayer depending on the phase-in of the assessments over a four-year period. “We are currently in the first year of the fouryear phase-in. There are properties that did have a decrease in their assessment and some that had no change in their assessments from 2012,� said White,

Staff began working on the budget in November 2012, which enabled them to present drafts to the standing committee chairs in February 2013, with final meetings being held in March. During the past year, chief administrative officer (CAO), Andy Brown and directors completed an operations review to examine all services and programs to find further savings or new revenues. The review included all counties properties and assets. Holman and members of counties council thanked staff for establishing a smooth and efficient budget process which allowed the budget to be passed before the end of March. “This is one of the earliest adoptions of a counties budget and this is the result of the expertise, hard work and dedication of staff, and the co-operation and approval of council,� Holman said.

Dr. Paula Stewart says more vitamin N (nature) can be a good thing By TARA GESNER tgesner@perfprint.ca

EMC Lifestyle – Nature is the wonder drug of feeling better. “Having nature around us makes us happier, smarter and healthier,” said Dr. Paula Stewart, medical officer of health at the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit. Stewart was the guest speaker during Let’s GOGO! (Get Out into the Great Outdoors) on Friday, March 22. The well-attended event, held at the Beckwith Recreation Complex, was presented by the Rural Recreation Association (RRA) and sponsored by Lanark, Leeds & Grenville Healthy Communities Partnership. Richard Kidd, reeve of Beckwith Township and RRA vice chair, introduced Stewart who

spoke about the essential impact nature has on health. “She is a champion for outdoor recreation and the Rural Recreation Association,” he said. “I am just so passionate about living in nature,” said Stewart. Her personal connection to the outdoors began as a child, when she vacationed each summer on Bobs Lake in Tay Valley Township, swimming, forging trails, building rafts and more. The bond only intensified in adulthood. Eight years ago Stewart’s family moved to a farm outside Perth. It is described as a wonderful place, which is serene, open and welcoming. “There are no buildings – nothing hard and rigid,” said Stewart, “and you constantly feel a rhythm of life.” Three generations

reside on the property, along with four horses. One day Stewart was driving from Perth to Brockville, listening to a program on CBC about Nature Deficit Disorder (NDD). “A physician from Harvard was speaking about the fundamental importance of living in nature,” she said, “in addition to society’s disconnection from it.” Stewart suspected this already. “I was mesmerized,” she said, “and there is a whole lot of science that backs it up.”

The science Richard Louv is an investigative journalist and author of eight books, including The Nature Principal, which identifies seven basic concepts that can help individuals reshape their lives. By tapping into the restorative powers of nature, people can increase mental acuity and creativity; promote health and wellness; build smarter and more sustainable businesses, communities and economies; and ultimately strengthen human bonds. “I find him incredibly

inspiring,” said Stewart. According to Louv, nature enhances the senses and increases awareness of the body in time and space. “Our brains are hard wired to pick up everything in nature,” said Stewart, “and this actually makes our senses (hearing, touch, sight, smell and taste) come more alive.” When in nature, there is a feeling of being connected to something, and moreover, the environment directly affects the prefrontal cortex of the brain. This region has

found affect on the human body. “The Boreal Forest of Canada releases prostaglandins, which decrease your blood pressure and enhance your immune system,” she said, “and a pine forest releases pinene, which acts like an anesthetic.” For young people with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), the pinene helps anesthetize and calm the brain. Therefore, children learn better and are not as anxious and hyperactive. See HEALTH page 5

“This is all happening because of the outdoors,” said Stewart, “and I believe in our hearts we already knew it.” Furthermore, nature relieves stress, offers a sense of calm and peace, and results in less aggression and anger. “Studies have shown the best thing for a workplace is to have a window that looks outside,” said Stewart. “And if you don’t have a window, have plants inside your office. You can also use pictures.” The more exposed people are to nature in their place of work, there is less conflict, less aggression and more cooperation, and it increases concentration and focus. Research also shows workers feel better about themselves, their relationships work, they have an enhanced intuition, and they feel more alive. “From a clinical point of view, there is much less anxiety and depression,” said Stewart. Regarding mental illness recovery, many health professionals now suggest individuals to get outside and go for a walk in nature on a regular basis. Not only is this less expensive, but it does not have the side effects of antipsychotic medication. “Add physical activity in nature and you are over the top,” said Stewart. “It can delay aging and there is a decrease in developing dementia.” “The research is just so strong!” she continued. Let’s GOGO! participants viewed a video on Friday, which was produced by a Grade 11 student in the Toronto area. It offered up some alarming statistics. Only six per cent of children ages nine to 13 play out-

side, and children ages eight to 18 spend more than seven hours a day using entertainment: TV, computers, video games, etc. “For the first time in history, children truly have become wired,” said Stewart. Wonderful day Kidd said the RRA worked very hard to organize Let’s GOGO! Festivities also included a handful of outdoor activities, a panel discussion and skipping demonstration. Participants enjoyed pole walking (Kate Collins), outdoor fitness (Kristy Giles), birding (Clifford Bennett) and outdoor identification (Rebecca Whitman). The panel discussion encompassed trail development (John MacLeod), conservation programming (Rebecca Whitman), getting involved (Clifford Bennett) and outdoor fitness (Kristy Giles). Bonnie Schnittker chairs the RRA. Recreational facility “We are very proud of our (recreational) facility in Beckwith,” said Kidd. Built over the last 12 years, Beckwith Recreational Complex includes 12 outdoor soccer fields, two lit ball diamonds, and multi-purpose artificial turf field used for soccer, rugby and football. “The regulation football field served as the home field for the GeeGees football team (University of Ottawa) in 2012,” said Kidd. “This was a major event – the highest level of football played in Lanark County.” The recreational complex also includes an indoor soccer field, ice rink and 10 kilometres of trails.

Grenville Fish and Game Club catch a roaring truck thanks to OTF grant EMC News – Members of the Grenville Fish and Game Club proudly unveiled their new truck on Saturday, March 23 thanks in part to a $25,000 grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF). Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark joined the celebration along with OTF representative Natalie Wood to officially congratulate members of the club and the large number of community members who came out to support. “I’m pleased to announce the Ontario Trillium Foundation has provided a

$25,000 grant to assist the Grenville Fish and Game Club with the purchase of new truck to transport equipment for its many community events,” said Clark. “Activities organized by volunteer club members help connect people of all ages and abilities to the great outdoors. This Trillium grant is a recognition of the value of these programs, which help preserve and promote our natural heritage.” The OTF funding supported the purchase of a truck to help haul equipment and boats to continue providing outdoor activities for the

community at large. In July 2012, the Grenville Fish and Game Club applied for the grant to help alleviate the reliance on members’ trucks, acquire a reliable vehicle to help with programming, and allow the club to organize more community events. “The truck is helping us meet our programming demands and support our community to our fullest ability. We really appreciate this grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, and we are happy to celebrate it today,” said Lynn Holmes of the Grenville Fish and Game Club.

Incorporated in 1968, the Grenville Fish and Game Club believes in making a positive difference in their communities through the encouragement of youth, families and community based organizations to enjoy and participate in traditional outdoor sports and activities. The club operates a youth summer camp, community and charity kayaking, fishing derbies, archery competitions and noncompetitive archery tournaments. In addition, the club participates in conservation projects such as wild rice and tree planting, community cleanups

and recycling projects. A leading grant-maker in Canada, the Ontario Trillium Foundation strengthens the capacity of the voluntary sector through investments in community-based initiatives. An agency of the Government of Ontario, OTF builds healthy and vibrant communities. For more information about the Grenville Fish and Game Club, visit www.grenvillefishandgame.com.

Planting a tree, keeping your shore natural, pumping your septic tank — they all do their part to making our watershed a healthier place to live, work and play. Contributing to local water awareness is the RVCA’s release of the Lower Rideau Subwatershed Report 2012. This informationloaded report summarizes the subwatershed’s health by looking at four indicators: forest cover, wetlands, shoreline vegetation and surface water quality. Residents and municipalities in the area now have a reliable set of baseline information for tracking future trends and for targeting stewardship activities. The Lower Rideau watershed drains 765 square kilometres and flows more than 70 kilometres from Burritts Rapids through North Grenville and the former Osgoode and Rideau Townships, past the suburbs of Manotick, Barrhaven and Riverside South and right into the heart of the City of Ottawa before being pushed over Rideau Falls to the Ottawa River. “The Lower Rideau is in pretty good shape overall,” said Martin Czarski, RVCA Watershed Ecologist. “The main stem of the Rideau is in good condition, but it is the smaller creeks and streams that need to be protected or improved.” The Lower Rideau is challenged with the slow, cumulative loss of woodlands, natural shorelines and wetlands — all a result of

the wear and tear of suburban life and riparian property management. “The good news is that we can try and recover what’s been lost,” said Czarski. “It will take time, but working together, landowners and communities can add these missing elements back into the landscape.” It can be simple things like keeping shorelines natural and planting trees to more complicated municipal planning and development projects that protect surface water quality and aquatic habitat through the creation of riparian buffers, and application of stormwater best management practices. “The RVCA is pleased to provide a number of stewardship programs designed to improve stream health,” said Czarski. “We have technical expertise, grant dollars and elbow grease, we are looking for partners — landowners — who want to make real, onthe-ground improvements to local streams.” Information in the Lower Rideau Subwatershed is used for decision-making at all levels (individual, family, municipal, county, provincial). These monitoring efforts help us better understand watershed trends and help focus resource management actions where they are needed the most. This is the fourth subwatershed report following similar reports on the Middle Rideau River (2009), Jock River (2010) and Tay River (2011). These are summaries of watershed health — more detailed information is available online through catchment data sheets. Conservation Authorities throughout Ontario are releasing similar reports.

COMMENTARY The power of the daffodil

EMC Editorial – Spring is a time of rebirth; the bright green buds form on trees, the grass starts to turn from its murky brown colour and those sunny yellow daffodils appear from the once frozen ground. Next month, those daffodils will take over the county as the Lanark, Leeds and Grenville branch of the Canadian Cancer Society marks Daffodil Month. Instead of the traditional daffodil bunches one can find local volunteers selling at grocery stores and banks, for a donation, people can receive a daffodil pin. The bright yellow hue of this pin never fades, can be worn year-round and serve as a constant reminder of the important of fighting back against cancer. This year’s daffodil campaign is especially poignant as the Canadian Cancer Society marks its 75th anniversary. For 75 years, the society has been hard at work raising funds to outsmart the disease, empower, Submitted photo inform and support those living with cancer, as well August is one of the ways the Perth Lions Club works hard to as advocating on their behalf. Every three minutes anraise money to support charities like Big Brothers Big Sisters other Canadian receives the heartbreaking news that they have cancer and without the Canadian Cancer of Lanark County. Society’s outreach and support services, that number would surely grow. This disease has affected virtually everyone in the Lanark, Leeds and Grenville area in some way. It’s a selfish affliction that robs us of our family and loved ones. The happy little daffodil is a stark contrast to the ugliness of cancer and perhaps that’s why it’s the perfect image to represent the Canadian Cancer Socidonate them to a charity of their choice. You can make a difference ety’s campaign. with “small change!” So next month remember to wear your daffodil with pride and know you are doing your part to make Diane Dennie cancer history.

Toffee-on-snow always a tasty spring treat for Mary

EMC Lifestyle – Finding clean snow in the yard at the farm was almost impossible. This caused a great concern for Mother. We five children, this time of year, begged for toffeeon-snow, as the sap poured from the trees. And that meant hauling in a roaster of spotlessly clean snow. As well as the boiling-down in the big flat pan in the bush, Mother would boil big pots of sap in the kitchen filling the house with sweet heavy steam. Each night we children begged for toffee-on-snow, but often Mother would say it was a Saturday night treat, and we went to bed out of sorts that we have been deprived of one of our favourite treats this time of year. And each night that we were allowed this indulgence, Everett, or Audrey, being the two oldest in the family, would be sent out for a roast pan of snow. Mother kept sending them farther and farther afield for clean snow. Father said she would soon have us going across the river to Admas-

ton, which of course, was an exaggeration. But Mother was fastidious about anything that came within a country mile of our mouths, and using a roast pan of snow where the livestock had trod was out of the question. So either Everett or Audrey was given the task of finding clean snow for the toffee. Emerson couldn’t be trusted to go beyond the barnyard! That night it was dark as pitch outside. It had been a heavy snow for late March. Mother said we would be staying home...no church party had been planned, and no one had offered their home for a game of cards, and so we had a rare Saturday night at home, and without a house full of neighbours. A perfect night for toffeeon-snow. Audrey would carry the lantern and Everett the roast pan and the big soup ladle, ready to bring in the freshly fallen snow. Mother had put a small pot of already boiled syrup on the front lid of the Findlay Oval, and it was fair Vice President & Regional Publisher Mike Mount mmount@perfprint.ca 613-283-3182, ext. 104

Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

jumping by the time the clean snow was brought into the house. Just perfect to pour out on the snow for a feed of sticky toffee! Although Mother always trusted Audrey or Everett to go well away from the barn yard, that night she took a big spoon and dragged it through the roaster of snow, just to be on the safe side. Well, what happened next was something like you would see in a picture show in Renfrew. There buried in the pan of snow was something that proved they hadn’t gone far enough! Mother stared at the black lump, which wasn’t big enough to fill a teaspoon, but big enough to send her into a fit!

THE EMC - 8 - Thursday, March 28, 2013

Father, used to Mother’s obsession with cleanliness, never took his eyes off the Family Herald and Weekly Star that he was reading by the oven door. She demanded to know where the snow came from, and both Audrey and Everett vowed it came from the farthest reaches of the yard where no livestock ever went. Well, that didn’t satisfy Mother. Even though she had no idea what the black lump was, she knew it had spoiled the entire roaster of snow! Audrey said she would get rid of it, and that the rest of the roaster was perfectly clean. Well, she might as well have told Mother the lump was just a raisin. Mother was having no part of her story! “Dump it out, Audrey. Goodness knows what else is in the roaster. There’ll be no toffee tonight.” Well, did that cause an uproar! Emerson accused Everett and Audrey of getting the snow from behind the cow byre where we dumped the manure, Everett took a handful of the snow out of the roaster and flung it at Emerson, ADVERTISING SALES: ADVERTISING SALES CO-ORDINATOR Andrea Harding SALES: Cheryl Johnston, Sharon Sinfield, Peter Ellis, Kathy Perreault, Liz Gray, Kevin Hoover, Jamie Rae-Gomes Email: emcsales@perfprint.ca Fax: 613-283-9988 THE DEADLINE FOR DISPLAY ADVERTISING IS MONDAY 4:30 PM

who paid him back by throwing his gum rubber at him, hitting him square in the face, and Audrey was ready to stomp off upstairs. Mother ordered her back to the table and she was told to scrub the roaster with hot water and lye soap, even though the teeny bit of black came no where near touching the pan! The commotion in the kitchen was like something you’d see in a movie. Father got off the rocking chair, folded the Family Herald and Weekly Star, tapped his pipe into the stove, and he could be heard muttering about the crazy family he was living with. “A man can’t even read the paper in peace.” While he was heading for the bedroom off the kitchen, he added: “Hauling snow in the house, throwing it around like it was nothing. Washing a perfectly clean pan, I tell you the whole house is going straight to Hell in a basket,” which was a saying Father hauled out every time something came up that riled him. And that night he was as riled as I had seen him in a long time. • Advertising rates and terms and conditions are according to the rate card in effect at time advertising published. • The advertiser agrees that the publisher shall not be liable for damages arising out of errors in advertisements beyond the amount charged for the space actually occupied by that portion of the advertisement in which the error occurred, whether such error is due to negligence of its servants or otherwise... and there shall be no liability for non-insertion of any advertisement beyond the amount charged for such advertisement. • The advertiser agrees that the copyright of all advertisements prepared by the Publisher be vested in the Publisher and that those advertisements cannot be reproduced without the permission of the Publisher. • The Publisher reserves the right to edit, revise or reject any advertisement.

EMC News – The inaugural Community Health Fest in Carleton Place took place on March 23, at the Neelin Street Community Centre (arena). The event was hosted by the Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital (CPDMH), its auxiliary and foundation and attracted a number of people to the three halls with displays, activities and seminars. Left, it was a spine-tingling good time at the Heritage Community Fitness and Rehabilitation booth with, from left: Valerie Beaulieu, Amber Henry and Andrew Chapman. Above, Mistee the Clown from Korny Klowns, left, painted Serena Ernst as a scary skeleton during the event.

Croods serves up great family entertainment Brighten up meals with fresh citrus My Take MARK HASKINS

cave and meets Gy (Ryan Reynolds). Gy is a man with ideas, and he isn’t afraid to try new things. Eep likes him right away, but Gy has to keep moving. The end of the world is coming, and Gy is heading for higher ground. He tries to get Eep to go with him, but she can’t leave her family behind. Eep tells Crug, but he doesn’t believe her. Then an earthquake destroys their cave, and the Croods find themselves thrown into a jungle wilderness full of new dangers. It seems their only hope of surviving in this unfamiliar world is to trust Gy. Crug doesn’t like it, and he especially doesn’t like Gy, but even a caveman like Crug will do whatever he can to protect his family. The Croods manages to be funny, exciting and heartwarming all in perfect proportion. There is nothing

about it my daughter or I didn’t like. It’s a truly wonderful adventure in a vivid prehistoric fantasy world. When I say pre-historic fantasy world I mean this isn’t exactly Earth. One of the striking things about the movie is that it’s filled with these fantastic creatures like owl cats, parrot tigers, elephant mice and piranha parakeets. This fantasy world is also marked by the animation. Everything looks like a cartoon, yet there are things like skin, hair, feathers and fur that are remarkably realistic. The whole experience is simply incredible. Keys to any good animated film are the actors who lend their voices to the characters. The Croods have some of the best. Everyone is so good it’s hard to single anyone out. Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds, Nicholas Cage, Catherine Keener, Clark Duke, and Cloris Leachman are all brilliant. They are hysterical, they have great chemistry, and they are the perfect fit for their animated counterparts. The Croods is as much fun as a family can have at the theatre. I know this father and his daughter loved every minute of it. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

EMC Lifestyle – It may be cold and bleak outside, but your meals don’t have to be. Preparing meals with a sweet splash of citrus not only adds flavour, but also nutrients that can help energize you during the dreary months. “While many fresh fruits and vegetables are out of season in winter, Florida grapefruit is at its peak, “ says registered dietitian Lydia Knorr. “Citrus fruit and juices have tremendous flavour, provide your body with a natural boost in energy and are an excellent source of vitamin C.” As a flavour agent and source of essential nutrients, citrus can bring sunshine to any meal. This recipe incorporates Florida grapefruit and grapefruit juice for a Thai-inspired dish. Thai chicken and Florida grapefruit noodle salad 12 oz (375 g) boneless skinless chicken breasts, thinly sliced 3 tbsp (45 mL) canola oil, divided 2 tbsp (30 mL) 100% Florida grapefruit juice 2 tbsp (30 mL) Thai red curry paste 1 tbsp (15 mL) grated

fresh ginger, divided 1 tbsp (15 mL) fish sauce 1 tbsp (15 mL) rice vinegar 1/4 tsp (1 mL) granulated sugar 6 oz (180 g) rice stick noodles 2 Florida ruby red grapefruits, peeled and segmented 1 small red bell pepper, thinly sliced 1 cup (250 mL) bean sprouts ¼ cup (50 mL) chopped peanuts 1 green onion, thinly sliced 2 tbsp (25 mL) chopped fresh mint Combine chicken with 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the canola oil, grapefruit juice, curry paste and 2 tsp (10 mL) of the ginger. Coat evenly. Set aside. In bowl, whisk remaining oil, ginger, fish sauce, vinegar and sugar. Set aside. Cook noodles for two minutes. Drain, rinse and place in bowl. Add grapefruit, red pepper, bean sprouts, peanuts and green onion. Drizzle with dressing, toss well and set aside. In a skillet, set over medium-high heat, stir fry chicken for about eight minutes, until no longer pink. Spoon over noodles and toss. Sprinkle with mint before serving. Makes four servings.

MOVIE: The Croods STARRING: Emma Stone, Nicolas Cage, Ryan Reynolds, Catherine Keener, Clark Duke, and Cloris Leachman DIRECTOR: Christopher Sanders and Kirk de Micco RATING: G EMC Entertainment - I took my daughter to see The Croods and we had a blast. It’s definitely a good movie when both dad and daughter are laughing out loud. Meet the Croods; Crug (Nicholas Cage) the father and leader, Ugga (Catherine Keener) his wife, Thunk (Clark Duke) their son, Eep (Emma Stone) their eldest daughter, Sandy (Randy Thom) their baby girl, and Gran (Cloris Leachman) Crug’s mother-in-law. They live in a harsh prehistoric world where almost anything can kill and eat them. They survive because they live by Crug’s many rules, and avoid anything new. They survive because they live in fear. Fear may keep them alive but it isn’t really living. At least that’s what Eep is beginning to realize. She’s feeling chaffed by all the rules, and by having to always hide in the cave. Then one night she sneaks out of the

Reflections BY JEFF MAGUIRE

nutrient foods and beverages in retail settings, beginning with sugarsweetened beverages.” Out of sight, out of mind I guess! Where to stop? Beverages loaded with sugar are obviously a consideration. But where do you stop? Are we eventually going to see an end to advertising for every product that is fattening? That will be good for the economy. Rather than bans, I much prefer the panel recommendations beginning with the word “encourage” or the phrase “provide incentives for….” In this case even those points are rather empty. One is that in order to start children on the path to health the authorities should “encourage and support breastfeeding for at least the first six months of life.” We all know breastfeeding is recommended. But it is still down to an individual decision by mothers as to whether they want to breastfeed. We won’t be legislating that surely! Anyway, I digress. Back to the main point – childhood obesity. The panel is also recommending all restaurants, including fast food outlets and retail grocery stores, list the calories in each item on their menus and make this information available on visible menu boards. Well-meaning I am sure. Everyone has heard the phrase “counting calories.” But does anyone seriously think people are going to line up in front of menu boards at fast food restaurants and make a list of the calories in each item they are considering buying? Kind of takes the “fast” out of this eating option doesn’t it! Honestly, there are many good recommendations in this report. To me what is missing is a too often ignored ingredient, “common sense.” The statistics are there for anyone to read and consider. Hard hitting points such as “75 per cent of obese children grow up to be obese adults.” Or the fact that in Ontario “25.6 of children ages two to 17 are overweight or obese.” There are other statistics which are equally stark and worrying. But where does a child really get his/her grounding? Hopefully (in most cases) at home from their parents or guardians. So, why aren’t we putting the onus on parents and guardians in the effort to reduce childhood obesity? Ultimately our health is our responsibility. It isn’t up to the government to make us exercise or help us lose weight. So, why aren’t parents being encouraged to parent when it comes to the battle against childhood obesity?

R0011987716/0328

EMC Lifestyle – While I understand big government’s efforts to save us from ourselves I don’t appreciate all of the methodology and I think those involved are missing some key points. We love bans in this country. Governments have banned smoking in public places, they’ve outlawed the use of pesticides and they have brought in distracted driving legislation aimed at keeping driver’s attention where it should be. There are other bans of course, but I don’t need to list them all to make a point. Now a panel appointed by the Ontario government, under the auspices of the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, is recommending that high calorie, low-nutrient foods and sugary drinks for children 12 and under should be banned. The province has an ambitious goal to reduce childhood obesity by 20 per cent over the course of five years. The idea is that by helping families lead healthier lives we can decrease the likelihood children will be overweight or obese as they grow older. The health ministry points out that obesity can lead to diseases such as diabetes, cancer and heart problems. Officials say these complaints are costing the Ontario health care system $4.5 billion annually. In order to kick-start a program officials say will require partnerships involving health care leaders, business, industry and non-profit organizations, a panel of “experts” was assembled. The so-called ‘Healthy Kids Panel’ conducted deliberations from May to December last year. Earlier this month they submitted a report entitled “No Time to Wait: The Healthy Kids Strategy.” The report includes many recommendations and I won’t be commenting on all of them. Most are worthwhile although exactly how some of these ideas will be implemented escapes me? For example, “Create healthy environments for pre-school children.” Where does that start and stop and who exactly is going to do it? Or how about this recommendation from the panel. “Make schools hubs for child health and community engagement.” Seems rather ambitious and at the same time somewhat vague. The prescription for attacking childhood obesity is more understandable. Again however, I’m unsure how these ideas will be implemented? Another example to consider. “Develop a single standard guideline for food and beverages served or sold where children play and learn.” That will take some work to implement I suspect. The recommendations are numerous and comprehensive. But when it comes to attacking childhood obesity the approach appears flawed to me. Under the section ‘Changing the Food Environment’ the report urges, “Ban the marketing of high calorie, low-nutrient foods and snacks to children under 12.” The next item is, “Ban point-of-sale promotions and displays of high calorie, low

Local stewardship councils host beaver workshop in Perth April 22

From page 19

Common sense says parents are the first line of defence. They have the power to make sure their children are eating properly and getting enough exercise. Reduce the amount of junk food your children are eating and get them off the computer and portable devices and involved in sports and other physical activities. Now there is a recipe for success in this area. Why do kids under 12 have the money to buy junk food and sugary beverages in the first place? When I was a kid….Oh well, never mind! Still, to me government policy is a poor substitute for good parenting, along with that often missing ingredient, common sense. Is it sensible to eat fatty foods three times a day and wash it down with sugar-

There are very few children playing in the parks in summer. No more road hockey games in winter. And if I ever see a kid around here shoveling snow, raking leaves or cutting the grass, I will immediately sprint to get my camera. Obviously I am being idealistic. In this day and age it probably isn’t realistic. But a return to the days when parents were parents and kids were kids could make a major positive impression on our society. Anyway, I can dream can’t I? If you have any comments of questions for Jeff Maguire he can be reached by email at: jeffrey.maguire@rogers. com.

I grew up in a different era of course and I recognize that. I’ve said it before, but the 1950s and ‘60s were, generally speaking, a quieter and gentler time. There were no fast food restaurants. Most families ate their main meals at home, together. Backyard gardens were common and our diets included fresh vegetables and fruit. Children were encouraged to play together outside. In our house if we were sitting around doing nothing we were given a task. Things like shoveling snow in winter and raking the front lawn in spring and cutting the grass in summer.

more than 200 water control devices on over 300 colonies of beavers on 360 square kilometres. This has virtually eliminated the negative impacts of beavers on the infrastructure. CBC’s The Nature of Things demonstrates how beavers can revive landscapes in The Beaver Whisperers, airing on March 28. Michel Leclair was an active subject in the program. His Gatineau Park operation – as well as Eagle Lake area (south of Sharbot Lake) – was filmed. You can view the making of The Beaver Whisperers at www.cbc.ca/natureofthings/ beaverwhisperer. In North America, Cherie Westbrook has measured the effects of beaver ponds on the groundwater at great distances from the ponds. She will discuss how beavers helpfully divert rain and snow from surface runoff and into our groundwater supply instead. She and her research team are just returning from Tierra del Fuego, where they gathered evidence for the Argentinians on the hydrological effects of transplanted Canadian beavers on watersheds at the tip of South America. Dr. Westbrook will give us the perspective of beaver activities at the scale of our watersheds and the larger water cycle.

EMC News – The beaver is a brilliant hydro-engineer and a colossal pain in the butt. What does it take to live side-by-side with beavers? For answers, go to Beavers and Us, an all-day workshop on Monday, April 22 in Perth. The Stewardship Councils of Lanark, Renfrew, Frontenac, Lennox & Addington and Hastings counties will co-host a productive day of fascinating revelations about Canada’s largest rodent. Read on for the impressive line-up of speakers. The well-known Michael Runtz (of wolf howls and other shenanigans) will present the natural history of beavers, one of earth’s most powerful and fascinating animals. They have a split toenail for grooming, the most versatile tail of any mammal in the world, and the ability to transform entire landscapes to suit their needs – just like us. Unlike us, they create diverse habitats ranging from ponds to wetlands to meadows. But beavers can be a bother, especially for those responsible for roads and watersheds. Folks in the front lines of these struggles will present their points of view and explain new tools and schemes for managing our national rodent. If we want to cohabit amicably with beavers, we must learn how. Michel Leclair has successfully managed beavers in Gatineau Park for over 30 years using specialized tools and management plans incorporating habitat information. Over time, Michel has developed an unmatched expertise, while installing

Hike for Hospice Palliative Care Services May 5 in Perth charge. Trained hospice volunteers provide in-home and hospital support to people who are living with a life-limiting illness and/or to people who are dying. The care extends to family members and friends, helping them to care for their loved one and to care for themselves. The support is tailored to meet the unique needs of each and every program participant along with their loved ones. After a loved one dies, peer support is offered through the bereavement program and resource centre. Trained volunteers are available to lend an ear offering emotional support and companionship while visiting and/or on the phone. There are monthly adult bereavement support groups in Carleton Place and Perth. There are also expressive arts groups for people living with a lifelimiting illness in addition to separate groups for bereaved children, teens and adults. Dignity House Day Hospice is a weekly program for people living with a life-limiting illness. It is also offered free of charge. The program offers five hours per week of respite for both the person who is ill and their caregivers. It is a safe, comfortable and supportive setting where participants enjoy a day of respite from “being sick” as they talk, laugh and enjoy connect-

Remember to be egg safe this Easter EMC News – With Easter upon us, Health Canada would like to remind Canadians of the importance of proper handling and preparation of eggs to prevent foodborne illness. Although Salmonella is not very common in Canadian eggs, some people are more susceptible to it, particularly young children, the elderly, pregnant women and people with weakened immune systems. Therefore, it is recommended that eggs be cooked thoroughly when serving them to people in these high-risk groups. You can reduce your risk of contracting foodborne illness from eggs by following a few simple tips. Shop carefully: Choose only refrigerated eggs with clean and uncracked shells. Do not use an egg if its contents are leaking through the shell or if it is stuck to the carton. Check the “best before” date on the package. While all eggs sold in Canadian grocery stores are graded Canada A, those sold elsewhere (such as at farms and farmers’ markets) may be ungraded. Ungraded eggs are not subject to the same food safety standards as graded eggs and have a higher chance of being contaminated by harmful bacteria such as Salmonella. Check for the maple leaf symbol on the carton or ask the vendor if you’re unsure whether the eggs have been graded. Keep eggs cold: Eggs should be refrigerated within two hours of purchase and should be placed in the coldest section of the refrigerator in their original carton; eggs should not be kept in the refrigerator door. The carton helps protect the eggs from damage and odours. Don’t crack the shell of an egg until you want to use it. Hard-cooked eggs, in shell or peeled, and pickled eggs can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one week. Hard-cooked yolks should be used within five days. If you include eggs in your lunch, make sure

to include an icepack to keep the eggs cold. Keep clean: Remember to wash your hands, utensils, cutting boards, and counters carefully with soap and warm water before and after handling raw eggs. This helps to avoid potential cross contamination and prevent the spread of foodborne illness related to eggs. Cook thoroughly: Eggs and egg-based foods should be cooked thoroughly to ensure they are safe to eat. This includes the yolk, which should not be runny. Serve egg dishes immediately after cooking. Store any leftovers in containers and refrigerate them within two hours. Uncooked cookie dough and batters made with raw eggs can contain Salmonella and should not be tasted or eaten until cooked thoroughly. Use pasteurized egg products instead of raw eggs when you are preparing uncooked homemade foods that use raw eggs, such as icing or Caesar salad dressing. Easter eggs: Decorated eggs that have been left out on display are not safe to eat. If you want to eat the eggs you decorate you should hard boil them thoroughly and then cool them (either by immersing them in cold tap water or on the counter until they have reached room temperature) before placing them in the fridge. Use a non-toxic colouring dye on eggs. Be sure that eggs are kept cold before and after dyeing. Between dyeing and cooling, they should be out of the refrigerator for no more than two hours in total. Coloured hard-boiled eggs can be stored in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to one week. It is estimated that there are approximately 11 million cases of foodrelated illnesses in Canada every year. Many of these cases could be prevented by following proper food handling and preparation techniques. For more information on food safety tips for eggs, please visit: www. healthycanadians.gc.ca.

EMC Events – The kick-off for the National Hospice Palliative Care week is Sunday, May 5 with the Hike for Hospice Palliative Care event. The Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association has done its research. As we know, seniors make up Canada’s fastest growing age group. In 2009, there were approximately 1.3 million people aged 80 or over. That number is expected to rise to 3.3 million people in 2036; that is 25 per cent of the total population. Currently, more than 252,000 Canadians die annually. Ninety per cent of those people could have benefited from Hospice Palliative Care; however, only 16 to 30 per cent of them had access to or received end-of-life care services. Even fewer people are offered grief and bereavement services. These issues are being addressed right here in our community. Community Home Support’s Volunteer Hospice Visiting Service and Dignity House Day Hospice are working together with community partners such as Bayshore Home Health, a national sponsor of the Hike, to ensure that people living in this community receive the end-of-life care they wish for. The programs of Community Home Support’s Volunteer Hospice Visiting Service are offered free of

Chamber names Thomas Cavanagh 2012 Business Person of the Year By TARA GESNER tgesner@perfprint.ca

EMC Business – The Carleton Place and District Chamber of Commerce announced its 2012 Business Person of the Year at its annual general meeting (AGM), held at Texas Worthy on March 20. Thomas Cavanagh of Thomas Cavanagh Construction Limited (TCCL) was selected based on business, community and people impact. By tradition, the recipient from the previous year announces the winner and presents the prestigious award, but Brent King of SRC Music was unable to attend last Wednesday’s event. For that reason, Richard Kidd, reeve of Beckwith Township and a member of the Chamber’s board of directors, assumed the role. TCCL was incorporated in 1969 and opened its first quarry in 1971. Today it has 35 licensed pits and quarries within the County of Lanark and City of Ottawa. “With 500-plus employees and gross sales (last year) of $110 million, people don’t realize how big a company this is or how successful it is,” said Kidd. Even though pits and quarries producing crushed aggregates remain the basis of TCCL, it is involved in many other sectors of the heavy construction industry: rentals, building houses and roads, site preparation, asphalt production and paving, sewer and water main construction, concrete sales and delivery, hydroelectric and solar power generation, and the list goes on. “They sponsor our sports teams, country music festivals and more,” said Kidd. During the 1998 ice storm, Beckwith was without power for 12 days. The army tried to

come and help, but could not do much. However, TCCL saved the day with generators, road clearing, etc. Not only is Cavanagh the 2012 Business Person of the Year, he is a man of the community, said Kidd. “At the end of the day I think this is a great business success story,” he continued. “He is a local person who takes pride in his work, takes pride in his community.” “I want to thank the people of Beckwith Township, Carleton Place and Mississippi Mills,” said Cavanagh. “It goes both ways. Thank you very much! The seven nominations for Business Person of the Year,

in alphabetical order, were as follows: Thomas Cavanagh (Thomas Cavanagh Construction Limited); Dena Comley (The Granary); Janet Foster (Collins Barrow Accounting); Elizabeth Powell (RE/MAX Realty Solutions Ltd.); Patti Saulnier (Accountapotamus); Volundur Thorbjornsson (CP Rentals & Property Management); and Catherine Wood (Mahogany Salon and Spa). “Congratulations to everyone,” said Donna MacDonald of Dominion Lending Centre and incoming Chamber president. Cavanagh has been operating his company in the area for the last 40-plus years, employing more than 400 people locally and continue to grow. “Thomas Cavanagh is a local business owner and a long-time area resident who has donated to many organizations in the town and region, including the Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital (CPDMH),” said MacDonald. The Granary is a longstanding business in Carleton Place, and Comley has owned the store for the last four years. “She employs three staff and is dedicated to providing quality merchandise and service,” said MacDonald. “Deena has been involved on the Carleton Place environmental advisory committee and the BIA (Business Improvement Association) board of directors.” Foster employs five local full-time staff and has been operating in Carleton Place for about 20 years. “I didn’t think you were that old,” joked MacDonald. She is active in the Chamber, CPDMH board of directors, and is a community supporter. Powell is known as a professional realtor with a friendly

smile. She is always ready to help, has very loyal clients, and is a strong negotiator. Accountapotamus has been operating in Carleton Place since March 2010. It has seven staff. Saulnier is a member of the Chamber board of directors. Thorbjornsson’s company was founded in 2011. “They have been very successful in renting out commercial, retail and employment space in Carleton Place,” said MacDonald. “They’ve been a factor in attracting and retaining many new businesses.” Thorbjornsson has been the prime motivator behind the creation of dozens of jobs in the municipality, specifically in the Business Park North. Mahogany Salon and Spa has operated in Carleton Place since 2010 and in Stittsville since 2004. Ninety-five people are employed between the two locations. “They are supportive of local charities and community events,” said MacDonald. “It continues to be a testament to this business community to have that calibre of nominees,” said Tracy Lamb, outgoing Chamber president. “It has been an incredible year,” MacDonald added, “and this is always the highlight of the AGM.” This year the Chamber will hand out two Business Person of the Year awards. “We are splitting the Business Person of the Year award from the AGM,” said MacDonald, “and will have it in October when we hold our gala.” Last Wednesday’s honour was for 2012. The award handed out in October will be for 2013, she continued. See next week’s paper for a report on the Chamber AGM.

Acting town clerk in Mississippi Mills to step down; last day April 19 tlepack@perfprint.ca

EMC News – The Town of Mississippi Mills held a special council meeting on Tuesday, March 26 to accept the resignation, with regrets, of the acting town clerk Rob Tremblay. Tremblay, who was filling in for Shawna Stone who is on leave, has accepted a permanent job in central Ontario and his last day will be April 19. The council was set to authorize the next steps in looking for a new acting clerk, which included the chief administrative officer to be authorized to offer an employment contract to a preferred candidate for a six-month contract. March 19 briefs The following are briefs from the regular council/committee of the whole meetings of the Town of Mississippi Mills, held on March 19.

The agreement will deal with the maintenance, control and responsibility for certain firefighting and rescue equipment between the

Water rate increases approved by Mississippi Mills tion was on the decision to declare a water ban in the town last summer due to the level two drought. Dunlop stated it was a bold but proactive measure to ensure the water supply was protected and the drought was quite significant. “When we are in a level two drought the public has to understand and be informed we are on a ground water supply and that is quite different…We have lots of clean and plentiful water and hopefully 2012 was an exception,” said Dunlop.

The other question was on the water tower being drained for 60 days. “It is not uncommon for a municipality to go through that,” said Dunlop. “We will have a stand-by plan with the fire depart-

EMC News – Water bills in Mississippi Mills will go up approximately $60 in 2013. The water and sewer service rates were officially approved at the Town of Mississippi Mills council meeting on March 19. The new water rate change will give taxpayers a 10 per cent increase in the base charge and a five per cent increase in the consumption charge over the 2012 rates. The new annual base charge will be $442.70 and the rates for consumption per one thousand gallons of water shall be $10.37 per billing. The water and sewer services base charge will be payable in three equal installments of $147.57. In 2012, the annual water bill for a typical residential water and wasterwater customer consuming 40,900 gallons (186 metres cubed) of water per year would have been $807. With the proposed base charge and consumptive

charge rates, the 2013 annual bill would be $867, which represents a $60 rise in the bill or an increase of less than $5/ month or $20/each billing. Troy Dunlop, director of roads and public works for the Town of Mississippi Mills, addressed council and two people in attendance for the public meeting on the then proposed water and sewer rates at a public meeting held on March 5. The municipal gross operations and capital budget for 2013 is $3.6 million with $2.12 million coming from water bill revenue, $1.07 million from reserves and $450,200 coming from hydro generation. Some of the major capital projects for 2013 include: moving forward with Spring St. sanitary pump station replacements; well pump number seven replacement (which Dunlop said is much overdue); interior and exterior water tower coating renewals (the largest project, which will drain the tower for 60 days); a sanitary bottleneck study on Spring, State and Clyde streets; and a program on sanitary infiltration and inflow.

The girls hoped to chat with Mercer about their numerous fundraising efforts for the initiative, which included a coffee house, stacking wood, class versus class challenges, Brain Fair class challenge, grocery store collections and canvassing door-to-door. The bigger picture of why they were fundraising, other than having Mercer at the school, was never far from the girl’s minds. “Five people fit under one net and with the money that we raised it will save the lives of 2,880 people, which is pretty amazing,” said Stratford-Kurus. “We will be able to help these people thrive with the use of a bed net!” Even if they weren’t the winners they knew they were still going to be making a difference. “Before we knew we won we knew we were going to be saving so many lives,” said Barrass. “Win or lose we were proud to be a part of it,” added Stratford-Kurus.

EMC Events – A Toronto choir with a growing reputation will travel to Almonte to team up with a recently-launched Ottawa valley choir to perform a special concert as part of St. Paul’s Church 150th anniversary celebrations on Sunday, April 7 at 3 p.m. Toronto’s ESPRIT Chamber Choir and the Con Coro Project, an 18-voice choir whose members hail from as far afield as Renfrew and Killaloe, will join forces to sing works by Palestrina, Mendelssohn, Durufle, Bruckner and a suite by Canadian composers. Founded in 2010 under the dynamic and enterprising direction of Mervin William Fick, ESPRIT was awarded a first prize at the Peel Music Festival in April 2012. The choir was also the proud recipient of the Hon. Barbara A. Hagerman

Award for first place at the 2012 Ontario Provincial Music Festival and was awarded second place in the Barbara Hagerman Class at the 2012 National Music Festival. Through his diligent and experienced guidance, the group has impressed its audiences with the depth and range of its interpretive skills in performance of acapella early music repertoire. As part of its mission the chorus seeks out performances in historical venues; in the summer of 2012, ESPRIT toured Montréal, Québec, performing at St-Joseph Oratory, Notre-Dame Basilica, Christ Church Cathedral and MarieReine-du-Monde Cathedral. Tickets to the concert are $20 and are available from the St. Paul’s Church office (613-256-1771), or at the door.

Ducks and swans back in area to prepare for spring’s arrival

Fitting local nod to Canadian music legend

EMC Editorial – The stories are of legend; how hard-living Canadian musician Stompin’ Tom Connors helped save Carleton Place’s Mississippi Hotel, and expressed his appreciation for the Ottawa Valley through song. Despite the fact that he went on to experience national fame (‘The Hockey Song’ remains an endearing musical memento of his impact on Canadian music), Connors never forgot the ties he had to the Ottawa Valley. He was born in Prince Edward Island, but first appeared in the valley back in 1967. He played engagements at the Mississippi Hotel (now known as the Greystone Hotel) back in 1967, a building on which he would come to have a big impact years later. The hotel was owned by Lorraine and David Lemay, who also owned establishments in Kemptville. Lorraine was famously referenced in one of Connors’ biggest hits ‘Big Joe Mufferaw,’ which also mentioned Carleton Place and other

valley towns such as Smiths Falls, Arnprior and Renfrew. In fact, it’s been said that Connors wrote the song back in 1967, which actually became his first hit. Over the next 20 years, Connors went on to national stardom and a slew of hit songs, while the Mississippi, known as ‘The Grand Ole Lady,’ fell into disrepair. During a reclusive period, local musician Lyle Dillabough reached out to Connors to see if the musician would help save the hotel, which was slated for demolition in 1990. Using his status, he made a public plea, which was picked up by media across the country and the hotel came off the chopping block. Of course Connors can’t be credited with singlehandedly saving the Mississippi Hotel, but adding his star power to the campaign certainly didn’t hurt. It also enriched the local legend of the musician and further endeared him to Carleton Place and area residents. The tale is something that made the locals feel

like they really knew Connors, who was a deeply proud Canadian; it was a story they could tell their children and grandchildren. The story has stuck with many that it’s only fitting the Carleton Place and Beckwith Museum and Carleton Place Municipal Heritage Committee are honouring Connors and his contributions to saving a piece of heritage within the town. A new historical plaque depicting the importance of the Mississippi Hotel will be installed in the building sometime this month. The ‘Grand Ole Lady’ has lived a colourful life, one that matches Connors’ own. The stately gem that sits proudly at 7 Bridge St. was built by Napoleon Lavalee in 1872. It first operated as a hotel, but also served as a place to hold council and public meetings. It’s easy to see the attraction of the imposing building, that originally featured

a four-storey mansard roof and a beautiful double wrap-around veranda. Those characteristics were destroyed in a 1959 fire, but the hotel continued to thrive. Under the ownership of Walter McIlquham, who purchased the hotel in 1883, the rooms were doubled and a red brick addition was created as a sample room for traveling salesmen. In the 1890s it was known for its striptease shows and later became a popular hangout for bikers and gangs. Its reputation quickly declined and it closed in 1985 before a local effort and Connors helped save it in 1990. The Mississippi deserves to be recognized as a treasured piece of Carleton Place’s history and while Stompin’ Tom Connors may have only contributed to a small piece of that heritage, this dedication and the classic tale will live on for years to come.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Councillor says concentration of Hooper Carnival organizers thank community for support St. development would be a “cash cow” DEAR EDITOR: I want to thank Jim Kowbel for his letter to the editor in the March 21 edition of the Canadian Gazette, which questioned council’s procedures and decision-making capabilities. The Hooper St. project was brought to a head at the planning and protection committee meeting on Feb. 19 when council voted 4-2 in favour of rejecting a proposal by Wally Thorbjornsson to develop a 9.1-acre business park on town-owned land off Hooper St. behind C.P Tire. This location was chosen for its proximity to the future health village and would have been a perfect complement to the village and hospital, if, or when, it gets approval. Because the location was not zoned for this type of development, and didn’t fit our Official Plan, it was rejected. There was a struggle to come up with other reasons, but the main reason was the Official Plan (OP), which ironically, the town is in the process of reviewing and revamping and would have been the perfect time to find a way to make it fit the OP. My personal perspective on this multimillion dollar mixed use business park proposal is that it was a concept, dissimilar to anything we’ve seen before, one which was likened to Centrepointe in Ottawa. At present the zoning is employment land, and this employment land does not allow residential or retail components. The proposal by Thorbjornsson would have seen four separate buildings constructed, which could have attracted professionals, and would most likely have been considered part of the health village. The residential part was loft style residences above these buildings with underground parking. Within one of these

buildings a retail section was proposed with a large tenant already expressing interest. Rounding out the development was highend town homes along the east side border which would have acted as a transitional area for possible future residential development beyond this. Along with pristine landscaping and a pond, this would have been a beautiful area. There are many options that could have been looked at and explored. As for the price of the land, the offer that was received by the town from Thorbjornsson was not acceptable, but was the same as land sold previously. Like any offer, that is where negotiations begin. Thorbjornsson is a proven and well respected developer in our town, having constructed several buildings in the Industrial Park North and at the same time attracting tenants to fill these spaces, thus creating dozens of much needed jobs in our community. His development in the north park will continue, with many more millions to be invested, and at the same time building on land that would have sat vacant for years. As for the business park, it had the potential to bring many professional jobs to Carleton Place, jobs that we desperately need. It had the potential to jump-start development of our health village, and it would have addressed some of the need for commercial development. In the end, with the concentration of development on this 9.1 acres, it would have been a virtual ‘cash cow’ as far as taxes are concerned, taxes that we will be in need of, as we will be facing some tough budgets for the next few years.

DEAR EDITOR: On behalf of the Carleton Place Winter Carnival committee, we wanted to take a moment (now that we’ve had a chance to catch our breath) to thank everyone for their participation in the first ever Carleton Place Winter Carnival! It was a wonderful event from start to finish and we can safely say that it was a huge success, in great part thanks to each of you. From those that donated funds, to the volunteers, to the community groups and the residents that came out to enjoy the fun, this was truly everyone’s carnival. We are so impressed with the response and dedication of the volunteers who stood out in the snow with us, to carry equipment, shovel snow, haul wood and entertain the crowd. Your hard work paid off in the happy faces of every resident that came out and enjoyed the free events. Also a huge thanks goes out to the many local businesses (both small and large) who stepped up

Jerry Flynn Carleton Place councillor

and offered what they could in monetary or inkind donations and helped us bring what started as an online idea to life in an extraordinary way. Residents enjoyed free gifts, prizes, food and fun and it was all thanks to your generosity of spirit. We are all still overwhelmed by how much the residents and businesses of our growing little town care about their community and about maintaining its small-town roots. We are eagerly anticipating 2014 and are hoping that everyone will consider joining us again for an even bigger, and we’re hoping better, event. Be sure to check the website for news and announcements or to leave feedback on the events. We’d also love to hear from anyone interested in participating in any way in the 2014 Winter Carnival.

Cathy and Casey Grayton tried their luck tossing into hospital items to win raffle tickets for the hospital foundation draw.

Screening for colorectal cancer should begin at age 50 For example, if your relative was diagnosed at age 45, you should be screened at 35.

Every week, 425 Canadians are diagnosed with colorectal cancer, and 175 will die from it. Yet, if detected and treated early, the cure rate for colorectal cancer is 90 per cent. March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, and laparoscopic surgeon Dr. Eric Bigelow, who performs surgeries at the Almonte General Hospital, answers some frequently asked questions about the disease. Who is at risk for colorectal cancer? “Anyone who has polyps in their colon is at risk, because these polyps can become cancerous,” explains Dr. Bigelow. “Those who have a family history of the disease are also at risk.” What are the symptoms? “Symptoms include a change in bowel habits, blood in the stool or black stool and abdominal pain that does not go away,” says Dr. Bigelow.

Who should be screened? “Screening should begin at the age of 50 for people who have no symptoms,” advises Dr. Bigelow. “However, if you have a first-degree relative who has been diagnosed with colon cancer, you should begin screening when you are 10 years younger than the age your relative was when diagnosed.”

How does the screening work? “The best screening test is a colonoscopy,” says Dr. Bigelow. A colonoscopy permits a doctor to look inside your entire large intestine, from the lowest part, the rectum, all the way up through the colon to the lower end of the small intestine. A colonoscopy also provides the ability to biopsy polyps in the colon, make a diagnosis and treat colorectal cancer at an early stage. Treatments for colorectal cancer include surgery and chemotherapy. How can you lower your risk? “A diet high in fibre can help,” says Dr. Bigelow. “It is also important to watch for any symptoms and get screened. This is a very treatable disease if detected early.”

fers a great variety of vendors and excellent valley entertainment in a one-stop location.� This year the show will welcome more than a dozen new vendors as well as many favourites from past shows. MacLaren thinks the Pakenham Home Show is a great event for all Mississippi Mills residents. “The show provides an opportunity for visitors to see what’s new in home and garden, a chance to get those creative juices flowing and start planning their summer project lists,� said MacLaren. “The show also provides vendors with an excellent opportunity to promote new products and services to guests.� Another reason to stop by is for a chance to win one of a number of door prizes, such as a lawn mower sponsored by TRU Country and Garden, $1,000 off a hot tub from Mahon Pools, $1,000 off a hot tub from Cobra Pools and Spas, or a $1,000 gift certificate for new appliances provided by

Scheel Furniture.

One-hundred and sixty years later, the manager of the local Home Depot is interested in doing a small project in order to help out the municipality. Coun. Gary Strike has proposed the creation of a small railway park on the old (Carleton Place to Ottawa) rail bed where the walking trail on Coleman Street is now, between Park Avenue and Queen Street. “Arnprior has a railway park and I am really impressed with it,� Strike said during the March 19 community issues committee meeting.

“Home Depot is quite interested, but I have not heard back officially,� Strike said. Carleton Place’s mayor Wendy LeBlanc and chief administrative officer, Paul Knowles, visited Arnprior recently to have lunch with mayor David Reid. “I told them to make sure they see the railway park,� Strike said. “However, when they asked the mayor about it, he had not heard of it.� “Wendy came back and said it didn’t exist,� Strike continued. “I told her it did, and I went and took pictures.� Carleton Place resident Dave Robertson said Home Depot is interested in community projects and asked him if he knew of any. “I sent an email off to a couple of people who came up with a couple of ideas,� Robertson said. “Basically, Home Depot sends the proposal off to the corporate office in Toronto for approval and funding.� In addition to the railway park idea, Coun. Rob Probert suggested an ice pad at the Carambeck Community Cen-

tre. There is hope Home Depot might be interested in doing a series of small projects in town. “The idea of a railway park is a good one because we are losing all our tracks,� Robertson said. “It might be a good idea to have some kind of commemoration of what was there at one time. Maybe some photos, too.� The last original railway crossing sign in Carleton Place hangs in the train exhibit at Canadian Co-operative Wool Growers Limited (CCWGL). Strike is working closely with Eric Bjergso, long-time general manager at CCWGL, because “he is going to develop his little line there.� “This might tie in nicely to the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum’s upcoming Travelling Back in Time theme,� said LeBlanc. Coun. Jerry Flynn moved a motion, which was seconded by Coun. Doug Black to authorize Strike to proceed with installing replica wooden signal switches and the signs be installed on new wooden posts not the decorative light posts.

He is a bit shy at first introduction but is very quick to warm up to people and actually become quite affectionate. He has very good manners as he is quiet (not vocal at all), has good off-leash recall and knows some basic commands. He is social with all people and most dogs (not sure about cats though). His has a moderate energy level, but can be found hanging out on his bed during the day. I believe he would be best suited in a calm environment instead of a busy/hectic environment. He is quite the character! Please feel free to let me know if you require any more information on this sweet little guy.

Deadine for BDC Young Entrepreneur Award applications April 2 Entrepreneur Award, describes the application process as an opportunity to examine a companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growth plan, fill in the knowledge gaps and build a portfolio to prove success. He says participation in the contest opened a lot of unexpected doors for him, noting his second place national finish also netted him $25,000 in consulting services and significant visibility opportunities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our business has grown exponentially: orders started flowing in, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard from many international distributors who want to carry our new line, we even sent a custom-made guitar to Sir Paul McCartney,â&#x20AC;? says Miltimore. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We ended up expanding our manufacturing capabilities to better meet the demand and tap into these new markets. If I could, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d enter the contest again in a heartbeat,â&#x20AC;? he said. To enter the 2013 BDC Young Entrepreneur Award, applicants must produce a short one-totwo minute video to present a turning point their business has reached and the solution they

propose to take the company to the next level. All entries have to describe a project that has yet to be implemented. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The application process is straight-forward,â&#x20AC;? says Bergeron. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fill out the contestâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s application form and submit your video online at www. bdcyoungentrepreneuraward. ca. We are looking for feasible solutions with a clear potential to improve the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growth prospects and for clear descriptions of the turning point your business has reached, including an overview of your market conditions.â&#x20AC;? The BDC Young Entrepreneur Award contest is open to all Canadian entrepreneurs aged 18 to 35 as of Dec. 31, 2012. Applicants must also be Canadian citizens or permanent residents and run a Canadianbased business that has been in operation for at least two years and is in good financial health. They must have been responsible for their companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day-to-day management for at least two years and must

hold at least 20 per cent of the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital stock. Eleven selection committees â&#x20AC;&#x201C; one for each province and one for the combined territories â&#x20AC;&#x201C; will meet to review the contest applications and videos. The post-production quality of the videos (special visual or sound effects) will not be taken into consideration in the final evaluation. The finalists will be announced on May 22, when Canadians will start voting for their favourite turning point projects on the contestâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s microsite: www. bdcyoungentrepreneuraward. ca. The voting period ends on June 11 and the winners will be announced on June 17.

DEATH NOTICE

DEATH NOTICE

LEGAULT Virginia (nee Vezina) In loving memory of Virginie (Virginia) (nee Vezina) Legault who passed away on March 17th, 2013 at the Almonte Country Haven in Almonte Ontario at the age of 85. The daughter of the late Laurent and Louisa (nee Gervais) Vezina of Field, Ontario, Virginie is predeceased by her beloved husband of 58 years, Gaston Legault who passed away in 2008 and her brothers, Henri, Adelard, Elie and sister Rosa. A resident of Lively for 54 years, she was known for her sweet disposition and gentle nature. Quick to smile and laugh till she had tears in her eyes Virginia had a joy for life. Her talents were many and she enjoyed sewing, knitting and making crafts of all kinds. A great cook who was willing to try recipes from all over the world, no one ever left her home without having been invited for a tasty meal or a sweet treat. Virginia’s garden overflowed with flowers and vegetables—some unusual and her green thumb meant that every fall there would be jars of pickles, preserves and jams. Always ready to try something new she was in her own way a quiet adventurer. She was never happier then when she was enjoying the out of doors with her children and her dearly loved husband Gaston. Together they travelled and camped throughout Northern Ontario and spent many summers and hours fishing on Lake Minisinakwa and Lake Nipissing. Her patience and commitment to catching the big one was unparalleled and she caught her fair share. Virginia was always up for a good game of cards with family and friends at camp after a day on the lake. She was a kind and gentle soul who enjoyed the simple pleasures of life. Virginia will be deeply missed by her children Claudette Legault (Janice Acton) of Halifax, Ron Legault of Hong Kong and Anita Legault (Diamond Uriarte) of Carleton Place, and her grand children Isaac and Keira Uriarte who brought her great joy. She is survived by her two brothers Noel (Giselle) Vezina and Elzear of Sturgeon Falls. Internment will be in the Saint Mary’s Cemetery in Sturgeon Falls. The family would like to thank the staff of the Almonte Country Haven for the kind and gentle care they provided to ‘sweet’ Virginia for the past 4 years. As an expression of sympathy, donations may be made to the Alzheimer Society or the Almonte Country Haven ‘Never Too Late’ Initiative. Friends visited with the family on Saturday, March 23, 2013 from 2pm to 6pm at the C.R. Gamble Funeral Home. Funeral Arrangements Entrusted Into The Care Of C. R.

KERR Paula October 11, 1944 March 15, 2013 Per Ardua ad Astra Paula was the dearly loved daughter of Gordon and Ethel, dear sister of John, Nancy and Wendy (Gordon Hadley) and cherished aunt of Laura Larsen and Tom Hadley. Growing up in an Air Force family, she fell in love with both airplanes and travel, so it was natural that she began her career as a Pan Am stewardess. After her Master’s degree, she became a professor at Algonquin College and authored a textbook on travel and tourism. Paula loved all creatures, spending many volunteer hours (and sleepless nights) fostering dogs and cats for the Ottawa Humane Society and Country Cat Sanctuary, and writing a popular “Pet of the Week” column for a Kanata newspaper. Her finest legacy is having helped so many homeless pets find their way into loving hearts and homes. Missing her greatly at this sad time are her own very special critters, Jake, Jenny, Digger and Zack. Paula’s long struggles with depression and chronic pain are over and she is finally at peace. Many thank to wonderful neighbours for their support, especially Lisa and Blake, David and Debby, Theresa and her girls, the friends at St. Anne’s Anglican Church in Oxford Station, and long-time dear friends Ginny and Helen. Donations in Paula’s memory to Country Cat Sanctuary, (GwenThompson), 1416 Limerick Rd., RR #2, Oxford Station, K0G 1T0, would be greatly appreciated.

JACKSON, Wayne Stoney - In loving memory of a loving husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather, who passed away March 20, 1993. It’s hard to believe 20 years have passed since we saw your smiling face. We miss you so much, no one could take your place As we sat beside your bedside our hearts were crushed and sore We did the best till the end, till we could do no more In tears we saw you sinking We watched you fade away And though our hearts were breaking We knew you could not stay Many days you suffered in silence, but always said I’m OK. There are times when courage fails us Moments when tears must flow. Yet with all our tears and heartaches You left us special memories, we cherish forever Our only comfort is knowing you are not suffering any more. So God if there are roses in Your garden, please pick a bunch for us. And place them in Dad’s hand and wish him a Happy Birthday for us.

Upcoming puppet workshop features powerhouse duo EMC Events – On Saturday, April 6, J.B. Arts welcomes Bob Stut and Sarah Argue to the studio on Mill St. in beautiful downtown Almonte to deliver a workshop in script writing. This powerhouse duo have some serious bragging rights and are both very accomplished in the business. Bob Stut has been a writer and puppeteer since 1984. He worked on Fraggle Rock for six years and was the lead writer and puppeteer for Sesame Street Canada. He was Iggy Iguana on over 300 episodes of ‘Under the Umbrella Tree’ for CBC. He was Molly, Snicklefritz and Fuzzy on ‘The Big Comfy Couch’ for seven seasons, and was on their writing team as well. He has also written for other animated and live action series for CBC, TVO, Disney and PBS. Sarah Argue is the creator of Rock the Arts and one of the hands behind the puppets. She has lived and performed at NASA’s Kennedy Space Centre, Six Flags in Los Angeles, and Branson Missouri. She has also graced the George Theatre in New York City as well as the Galveston Texas Grand Opera House. AUCTIONS

Her puppets have performed across Canada and Australia where they have been featured at after school programs in Sydney. The Rock the Arts puppets have appeared on YTV’s Saturday Morning Crunch and are now causing mischief in Creatureville. In this workshop Argue will introduce you to the fun of playing with puppet characters and creating interactive storylines. Stut will then give you tips and tricks on writing and formatting scripts for puppet performances for theatre, television or the classroom. All you need to bring is a paper and a pencil. Puppets and a puppet stage are available. “This is one you do not want to miss! I have had the great fortune to work with both of these amazing writers and performers and am thrilled that they are coming to Almonte to pass along their knowledge,” says Noreen Young, artistic director of Puppets Up! International Puppet Festival. This is the fifth in a series of workshops designed to bring puppets and the art of puppetry to life. For more information, contact Jeff at 613-220-3005.

Omni Health Care owns Almonte Country Haven, and the ride came about as part of an Omni pilot program ‘Never too late…to realize one’s dream.’ For Taylor, it was a once-in-alifetime experience. “It was heavenly,” she said. “I’d been wanting to ride in a big rig for quite some time.” And while some wintry weather loomed, it didn’t affect the experience one bit. “It was perfect from my

seat,” she said. Driver Danny Grace of Grace’s Trucking was pleased to help accommodate Taylor’s dream. It was one of the more pleasant rides he’s had, said Grace. Taylor joined friends and caregivers for a lovely lunch before making her return tour to Country Haven. Omni Health Care’s one-year pilot program aims to improve quality of life for seniors by helping them to realize their dream.

EMC News – The Town of Mississippi Mills has denied a funding request from Stephen Overbury for the Naismith Collection Exhibit, which is displayed at the Almonte Old Town Hall in his privately rented space. Overbury had asked the town for a grant equal to the one provided to the Naismith Museum. In 2013, the town provided funding to the Appleton Museum, Naismith Museum and R. Tait McKenzie museum in the amount of $5,250 each. In a recorded vote of seven yeas (Councillors Denzil Ferguson, Duncan Abbott, Shaun McLaughlin, Val Wilkinson, Garry Dalgity, John Edwards and mayor John Levi) and two nays (councillors Paul Watters and Bernard Cameron), the funding request was rejected during the March 19 Committee of the Whole meeting. A report submitted to the committee on the issue, prepared by chief administrative officer Diane Smithson, stated that Overbury’s display is not considered to be a museum as the other facilities in Mississippi Mills, which operate under a board of directors, produce annual financial statements and operate

as a not-for-profit (organization). It also referenced that there is no funding in the town’s 2013 budget to accommodate the request and even if there was, Overbury would not be eligible under the town’s programs to receive any funding. He sought the funding specifically to hire a student to operate the museum over the summer months. “I hoped that the student could keep more regular hours,” said Overbury. However, he noted he has no hard feelings towards the town for denying the funding. “It’s understandable that council was not able to hire a student for the summer,” said Overbury. “There are many special interest groups in Almonte and not all can be funded. It won’t affect the sustainability of the private museum.” The Naismith Collection Exhibit is open to the public year-round by appointment and features the personal archives, letters, photographs, manuscripts and more of Dr. James Naismith, creator of basketball and Almonte’s most famous resident. Cameron spoke very highly of Overbury’s exhibit during the debate on the recommendation and believed the funding process to be flawed. “This is probably the world’s greatest single collection of Naismith artifacts for those of us who have

seen it and recognize it for what it is,” he said. “The stipulations we have for the other museums…are not being followed by all the other museums and we still give them grant money, with two of the museums currently being funded by ourselves. That creates an issue there, so we have a problem following our own rules. It’s not a black and white issue.” Cameron recommended that the town work with Overbury towards complying with the funding regulations. “I don’t mean just give him a sheet of paper with the rules on it but actively work with the individual on a one-to-one basis to comply,” he stated. Cameron also said the municipality should do everything possible to keep Overbury’s exhibit within the community. Abbott, however, was against granting the funding request. “We never have and I don’t think ever will fund a private business and that’s what this is,” he stressed. During the March 19 meeting, Overbury also requested his lease on the second floor of the Almonte Old Town Hall be terminated effective March 31. Committee of the Whole discussed this issue in-camera.

Contest win results in two Kobo e-readers for St. Gregory group of students By TARA GESNER tgesner@perfprint.ca

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Connie Haimeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grade 3 class at St. Gregory Catholic School in Carleton Place is the lucky recipient of not one, but two new Kobo e-readers. The group was selected by the Alzheimer Society of Lanark County (ASoLC) to receive the e-readers due to its participation in the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent Creative Expression Contest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live with Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease?â&#x20AC;? asked Karen Timmons, education and support coordinator with ASoLC. Living with Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease can unleash a storm of emotions, questions and unexpected discoveries for both the individual affected and his or her caregivers.

Submissions to the Creative Expressions Contest â&#x20AC;&#x201C; essay, poem, rap, skit or song â&#x20AC;&#x201C; could be fiction or nonfiction, but they had to help increase awareness of Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease and related dementia. Dementia is a group of brain disorders that affect multiple cognitive functions such as memory, language, thinking, insight and judgment and behaviour. Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease is the most common cause of dementia. What causes Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease is still unknown; however, when attempting to diagnose the condition, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to rule everything else out. This can be achieved by way of a complete physical exam (including blood work), medical history exploration (patient and family), cognitive testing, CT Scan and MRI, and mental status examination. The risk factors for Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease are as follows:

family history, Down syndrome, hypertension and cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. Warning signs might include memory loss that affects day-today functioning, difficulty performing familiar tasks, poor or decreased judgment, problems with language, disorientation to time and place, misplacing things, and loss of initiative. Judging criteria for the contest was as follows: creativity, effectiveness, impression, main idea, organization and presentation. Timmons said Haimeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s class demonstrated it comprehended Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease â&#x20AC;&#x201C; achieved by way of education and personal experiences. Students can use e-readers to read books of their choice, read classroom e-books, conduct research, navigate the Internet, view picture files, read PDFs and plain text, and access all kinds of information.

Seniors seek publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s support to help save Almonte post office murals EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; By the end of March, three murals on the side of the Almonte Post Office will be taken down. These murals have a very special and unique significance. They were created in 1999 to commemorate the International Year of the Older Person. Unlike most of the town murals that were painted by a commissioned artist, the Almonte Seniors Club #61 commissioned Adrian Baker to design the murals and then supervise the seniors as they meticulously painted the murals themselves. Bakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commission also included her fee to do the finishing details of the mural and Carol Gaughan also assisted her with some of the finishing details. The seniors would travel out to Noreen Youngâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s generously donated studio space and as many of them had never held a paintbrush before, Baker also gave them introductory painting lessons. The seniors put many hours of work into creating these murals.In addition to the hours of work on the murals themselves, they had to raise the funds for Bakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commission and the mural materials. The seniors club applied for a grant from the Trillium fund.

The Trillium grant provided only half of the monies required so the seniors had to work very hard to raise the rest through bake sales, raffles, yard sales, calling campaigns and everything that they could think of. Gaughan herself painted a picture and donated the proceeds from the sale to the project. These murals depict three members of this community who gave their talents to improve life of young and old: â&#x20AC;˘ Margaret Johnson ( 1909-2000), who was postmistress for 28 years from 1946 to 1974. She presided over the transition from the old post office to the new. Her favourite saying was â&#x20AC;&#x153;Work is only work if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather be doing something else.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;˘ George Gomme (1912-1996) came to Canada as a young boy. From humble beginnings he became a lumber mill owner, Mayor of Almonte and Minister of Highway for Ontario. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Deeds, not words are what really countâ&#x20AC;? was his motto. â&#x20AC;˘ Louis Peterson (1895-1989) had a vision when he got off the train in Almonte and 80 years later his name is synonymous with the ice cream company he founded.

He was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Man with vision and great courage.â&#x20AC;? Now time has taken its toll on the murals and they need refurbishing. When they were first hung at Gord Pikeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ice house which is now the Creperie, the Victoria Woolen Mill provided protection from the elements. Now on the side of the post office they are at the mercy of all kinds of weather. Many of our seniors have passed on and the Almonte Seniors Club #61 has closed. But there are a few remaining seniors who want to rescue the murals and now have to raise the money required. They will once again have euchre games, yard sales and they will lobby the town, organizations and businesses for help, but alas are less able to work as hard on this project as they did 12 years ago. If you would like to make a donation to help save these murals that are a testament to the drive, determination and community spirit of seniors in Mississippi Mills, please contact Mary-Lou Labrie at 613256-5069 or visit stores on Mill St. with the muralsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sign displayed in the window.

Canadians win first ever playoff series, open semi-final with Cornwall Friday In fact they had dropped eight straight playoff games before winning 4-1 in this season’s opener against Bears on March 15. In the spring of 2011 Canadians won the first two clashes of their quarter final series with Gloucester Rangers, only to drop the next four to exit in six games.

By JEFF MAGUIRE

EMC Sports – This has been a highlight reel season for Carleton Place Canadians and now, with the semifinals waiting in the wings, there is more exciting Junior A hockey action ahead. For the first time in their short history, Carleton Place has qualified for the second round of the playoffs. The team finished second overall in the highly competitive Central Canada Hockey League (CCHL) during the regular season. Last Friday they added to that success, downing arch rival Smiths Falls Bears to win their best-of-seven quarter final set in five games. Canadians might have swept the series had it not been for the outstanding goaltending work of Bears’ veteran Patrick Martin in Game 4 at Smiths Falls last Wednesday. Martin made 43 saves to stonewall Canadians who held a big edge in territorial play, outshooting the home team 45-22. Smiths Falls squeezed out a 3-2 victory. However, playoff success was only delayed for two days! Friday night, playing in front of a season high crowd of nearly 900 at community centre, Carleton Place came away with a hard fought 3-1 victory over the stubborn Bears. Carleton Place will now face Cornwall Colts in the semi-finals beginning tomorrow (Friday) night on home ice. The face-off is scheduled for 7:45 p.m. Canadians won their final regular season contest over the visiting Colts to edge Cornwall out for second place

The Carleton Place Canadians defeated the Smiths Falls Bears 4-1 in first round playoff action, above the Canadians were all over the Bears in game four but lost 3-1 on March 20. in the 12-team CCHL. The 7-2 triumph on March 10, secured home ice advantage for Carleton Place in both the quarter finals and semi-finals. During the regular season Colts won four of six meetings between the teams but one victory was in overtime

and another in a shootout. Canadians’ successful opening round set against Smiths Falls helps to erase last spring’s unexpected quarter final loss against Hawkesbury Hawks. Canadians, who finished fourth overall last season, were swept by the fifth place Hawks.

Carleton Place, the most recent expansion team in the league (they began play in September 2009) had never tasted post season success until last Friday night. Canadians have qualified for the playoffs the past two seasons but lost in the first round on both occasions.

Clarke pleased Carleton Place head coach and general manager Jason Clarke is thrilled with the outcome of the series with Smiths Falls and is looking forward to the upcoming semi-final against Cornwall. “We won in five games, but it was a hard fought, close checking series. I give credit to Mark Grady (Bears’ head coach) and his team. They were well prepared and played hard. We were fortunate enough to come out on top,” Clarke said Tuesday morning. He was especially pleased with the crowd for the deciding game Friday. “It was nice to have such a full building at home. It’s a big boost for everyone and really helps us. Teams aim for playoff success because it is so important to the bottom line.” Canadians were missing three of their top six forwards for the Smiths Falls series. Brothers Brock and Luke Edwards were both injured and Lucas Gonu missed two games and most of another. Brock Edwards and Gonu will be ready Friday while Luke Edwards should rejoin the team in time for the third or fourth game Clarke notes. See CANADIANS page A/CP22

G N I V ,I TIPS AND ADVICE FROM OUR LOCAL EXPERTS! law, they may only fill tanks up to 80 per cent full. The reason: “Fuel expands BUYING ANTIQUE FURNITURE SELECTING SUPERIOR in heat,” explains Benesch. Personally I recommend that a person buy real wood! (Yes I admit I have PLANT VARIETIES Look for labels. Propane is a flammable gas, and therefore new tanks must a preference for wood). After all, most pieces have been around for a hundred years and after we are gone they will still be around for our greatgreat grandkids.

With the onset of spring, garden planning creeps into the family conversation. When selecting annuals for this year’s garden you will be pleasantly surprised if you focus on selecting superior varieties.

How long will the pressboard and glue last if it gets wet? It just cannot be refinished and used again and again. Also I always wondered about all these environment allergies. Could it be because of the chemicals leeching out of the new furniture that is made of pressboard and glue and not solid wood? Solid wood is usually the best way to go!

Superior varieties are those that give a spectacular show all summer long. They are disease-resistant. Their colours pop. Some are drought tolerant. They keep their promises.

DO YOU THINK YOUR HEADACHES ARE NORMAL? While taking drugs for headaches may be convenient, they all have long term side effects. Worse yet, they don’t correct the underlying condition causing your body to respond with pain signals (the headache!). The most common cause of headaches is from the spinal bones not supporting your head properly (‘cervicogenic headaches)’. The vertebrae not moving right, are pinching nerves, even causing tension in the neck muscles. Chiropractors take postural xrays and on xray we most often see a loss of the normal curve of the neck. If you suffer from headaches, drugs may numb the pain, massage may loosen muscles but to get to the root cause of the problem, why not ask ‘why’—why is my body sending these pain messages into my head? Why do my neck muscles tense up like that? Headaches are not normal. Pain is a way your body talks to you. Isn’t it time you listened?

As an example when it comes to the old favourite lobelia, you will benefit by selecting the Techno Heat Dark Blue variety. Dainty blue flowers abound even in the dog days of summer. If you are seeking trailing petunias from seed, consider those from the Ramblin series over the Waves. Our experience is that these will continue to produce blooms to the centre of the plant rather than the ends of the branches. For the most stunning red geraniums be discriminating. Ask for Calliope Dark Red. They are the most stunning deep red geraniums and are carried on strong rich green leaves. For the most spectacular show of yellow in your garden, this year pass on the marigolds and try some Tiger Eye Rudbeckia. They will stop traffic. There are many other examples. Ask our garden centre staff for recommendations on superior plant varieties. There is a difference. You won’t be disappointed.

HOW TO SAFELY HANDLE PROPANE AND GAS Warm summer weather means grilling outdoors, setting up the summer cabin and taking the RV on the road. In many cases, this also involves handling the propane and gas that fuel these activities. “Propane can be quite dangerous if not handled appropriately,” says Catherine Benesch, communications/media program coordinator for the Canada Safety Council. Fortunately, Benesch adds, a few smart actions can go a long way toward ensuring safety. PLAY BY THE RULES Find a professional. Only qualified people may fill propane tanks. And, by

have a decal stating so. Check for this when purchasing propane. Also examine the tank’s collar for the date stamp, which indicates the last time the tank was inspected and refilled. “Tanks must be inspected regularly and replaced every 10 years,” says Benesch. PRACTICE PREVENTION Check for leaks. A nose-wrinkling scent is added to propane, so something may be awry if you smell something similar to rotten eggs or boiled cabbage. Sometimes, though, this scent can fade away. To play it safe, apply a 50/50 mix of liquid soap and water to the tank’s valve and other connections. “If you see gas bubbles forming, you have a leak,” says Benesch. Travel short distances with fuel in tow. “When you’re taking gas to the cottage, stop at the gas station closest to your destination,” says Benesch. “You want to minimize the time the container is in your vehicle, because it can get damaged in a crash and intensify problems.” Be proactive. Never smoke around a propane tank, and don’t tie anything such as pets or bicycles to a propane pipe. Act fast in an emergency. If you suspect a propane leak from your barbecue, quickly turn off the supply valve and let the barbecue ventilate, advises Benesch. If you think there’s a leak in your home, “Avoid electrical sparks; don’t touch electrical switches or appliances,” says Benesch. Once you are safely away, notify the fire department. Store fuel outdoors. Keep propane tanks and gas cans upright in a shaded, well-ventilated outdoor area. Never store propane in your house, garage or car. A small amount of gasoline may be stored in the garage for fuelling small engines like a lawnmower. For added safety, ensure the gas container is kept upright and away from heat sources and flammable materials. Properly dispose of propane tank. Take empty or outdated cylinders to an approved hazardous waste disposal site in your municipality. Another option: “Some refuelling stations may offer to take old propane cylinders,” says Benesch. Never place an empty propane tank in your garbage as it could cause an explosion when compacted in the collection truck.

“But some other guys stepped up and did the job and that is great,” he adds. He expects a tough series against Cornwall. “They are a well-coached, highly skilled team. It should be another really tight, competitive series,” he said. As expected Ottawa Junior Senators, the regular season pennant winners in the CCHL, eased past eighth place Hawkesbury in their opening round set. Junior Sens blanked the visiting Hawks 2-0 last Tuesday night (March 19) to sweep that best-of-seven. Senators are now battling defending champion Nepean Raiders in what promises to be an excellent series. Raiders finished fifth overall in the very tight regular season standings. They then scored the upset of the opening round, sweeping Pembroke Lumber Kings in another hotly contested quarter final series. Game 1 of the crosstown series between Ottawa and Nepean was played Wednesday night at Jim Durrell Recreation Complex. The second game is Friday at Nepean Sportsplex. Both are 7:30 p.m. starts. The final three games of the Carleton Place-Smiths Falls series were thrillers. Two were one-goal games and in Friday’s decisive showdown Canadians needed an empty net strike in the dying seconds to win by two goals. Meanwhile Cornwall engaged in the most competitive showdown of the opening round before emerging with a 4-2 series win over Brockville Braves. Each team had an overtime victory. Colts were on the verge of losing

Game 5 at home Thursday before managing to tie the game using an extra attacker with just one second left in regulation. They then won the contest with a goal early in OT. Bounce Bears As outlined, Canadians secured their first-ever post season triumph last Friday (March 23) in front of a large crowd at Carleton Place and District Community Centre. It was another excellent contest and wasn’t decided until sophomore forward Stephen Baylis fired an empty netter with 12 seconds remaining in regulation to make it a two-goal victory for the home team. Canadians, who won the series in five games, outshot Bears 37-19. On this occasion Smiths Falls’ net minder Martin was unable to give his team the lift he did two nights earlier. Martin kicked out 34 shots and was named the third star in a losing cause. Right winger Luke Kasteel, with his third of the playoffs, opened scoring for Carleton Place at 3:53 of the opening stanza. It stayed that way until Smiths Falls’ left winger Jeffrey Carroll triggered his team high fourth marker of the series at 12:07 of the second period to tie it. But with Bears’ winger Adam AbuAli sitting out a slashing penalty, Canadians’ left winger Kevin Dufour scored his first of the series at 6:35 of the third. Dufour’s marker, which was set up by Kasteel, was the game and series winner! Carleton Place mainstay Brendan O’Neill won his fourth game, blocking 18 shots. Bears were assessed five of the game’s eight minor penalties, one of which proved crucial. Three second period goals proved to

The star for Smiths Falls was veteran goalie Martin. He made 43 saves as Carleton Place, intent on a first round sweep of their arch rivals, out chanced the home team 45-22. Jeffrey Carroll netted twice in a span of one minute, seven seconds and Michael Buonincontri triggered his second of the series on a powerplay just three minutes, 22 seconds after Carroll’s second. The visitors did everything they could to end the series, rebounding with

a pair of goals and out shooting Smiths Falls 18-7 in the third period alone. Centre Alex Globke, with his third of the series, got Canadians on the board during a powerplay at 13:44 of the middle stanza. Right winger Garrett Moore, with his second of the playoffs, made it close at 9:17 of the final frame. Martin barred the door for much of the night and was a deserving first star. O’Neill made 19 saves but suffered his first post-season setback. Canadians were handed eight of 15 minor penalties. Pivotal win

Canadians moved within one win of their first trip to the league semi-finals, edging the visiting Bears 2-1 in front of a Tuesday night crowd of more than 700 fans at community centre. Defenceman Larry Smith’s powerplay marker with 6:24 remaining in the third period decided the issue. It was a highly competitive and entertaining contest. Smiths Falls, who were desperate to get back into the series, stayed with Carleton Place every step of the way. Canadians held a slim 37-36 shots advantage. Kasteel opened scoring at 12:04 of the first period. It stayed that way until the 1:46 mark of the final frame when Bears’ left winger Yannick Crete scored during a Smiths Falls powerplay to tie the contest and set up a nervy finish. Smith’s first goal of the series was the winner. O’Neill made 35 stops for his third playoff win. Martin was the hard luck loser despite kicking out an equal number of Carleton Place scoring tries. There were 11 minor penalties, seven of those going to the visitors. The semi-final opener with Colts goes Friday night at 7:45 here. Game 2 will be played at Ed Lumley Arena in the Cornwall Civic Complex Monday, April 1 beginning at 7:30 p.m. The third game is next Wednesday (April 3) in Carleton Place with Game 4 the following night in Cornwall. Both are 7:30 p.m. face-offs. If necessary the fifth game will be at community centre Saturday, April 6 at 7:45 p.m. Game 6 would be in Cornwall Monday, April 8 at 7:30 p.m. while a seventh and deciding contest would be played in Carleton Place on Wednesday, April 10 also at 7:30 p.m.

EMC Events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A pencil, a notebook and a golf ball, are all simple items that can help make education possible for children in Nicaragua. The second annual SchoolBOX Golf For Kids Charity Tournament is set for May 5 at the Canadian Golf and Country Club and organizers promise it will be a swinging good time. Mike Maloney is the key organizer and calls the Canadian a top-notch facility. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They know how to run tournaments and it will be a first-class tournament,â&#x20AC;? said Maloney. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are going to have a ball and I am fully confident that the Canadian will put on a great show.â&#x20AC;? Last year the event started small but raised more than $7,000 to help with the goal of the organization, which is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Making Education Possible.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The event is a best ball 18-hole tournament at the vast golf course just outside of Carleton Place at a cost of only $125 for dinner and golf, or $50 for dinner only. The tournament starts with registration at 11:30 a.m. before the shot gun start at 1 p.m. It will be followed by the dinner at 6:30 p.m. (shaved beef or a vegetarian option). The event will also offer seven different contests including: a $10,000 hole in one, longest drive, straightest drive, closest to the pin, a casino hole (betting to see if you can get a birdie for a special sponsored prize), or parallel parking your golf cart. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will be a riot to watch,â&#x20AC;? said Maloney. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And the last contest will be a surprise!â&#x20AC;? Maloney has assisted the Almonte-based charity since the beginning, as his son Kevin was one of the original board members. The charity started after Tom Affleck of Almonte travelled to Central

America in 2006 with the goal of trying to help someone. He gave two young girls a notebook and a pencil, which enabled them to go to school. Maloney travelled to Nicaraguaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Corn Island in 2007 and helped build the first school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were sold on SchoolBox at that point and I have been on the board ever since,â&#x20AC;? he said. Since then SchoolBox has helped build 40 classrooms, created five mini-libraries and has delivered 47,753 education packages to students and teachers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a local charity and anyone who goes on a trip is sold. We need to spread the word as it is great thing to see kids smile because they can go to school,â&#x20AC;? said Maloney. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The local people are so appreciative that Canadians want to help them. You come back a better person after helping them.â&#x20AC;? The entire event is focused on helping children who are most in need and the trophy for the winning team even reflects this sentiment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The trophy has a little guy on itâ&#x20AC;Śthat is why we do it, for the kids,â&#x20AC;? said Maloney. The tournament could not run without the generous support of local sponsors. The main event sponsor is Equator Coffee Roasters Inc. but Maloney says they are still looking for others to help out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of the money goes to the kids,â&#x20AC;? said Maloney. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of the entry fee goes to play, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all in (getting) the sponsors. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how we make the money, that is what we need.â&#x20AC;? For more information on the tournament or to become a sponsor contact Maloney at 613-2565059. To register for the tournament or the dinner visit the Canadianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website at www.canadiangolfclub.com and follow the links for tournaments under the news and info section.

Oxford Mills author making name for herself with first novel By ASHLEY KULP akulp@perfprint.ca

EMC Lifestyle – While writing began as just a hobby for Brenda Corey Dunne, the release of her first book has her dreaming of spinning it into a full-time job. The Oxford Mills woman selfpublished ‘Treasure in the Flame’ in September 2012, but the young adult historical fiction novel has been gaining popularity thanks to signings during last December’s Christmas in Merrickville, as well as last Saturday (March 23) at the Pinecrest Chapters in Ottawa. This success has also netted her a literary agent with boutique agency, Literary Counsel, based out of New York City. Dunne actually began the process of writing her first book two years ago when she signed up for a monthlong, Internet-based novel writing project, entitled NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), which brings together writers from around the world and challenges them to create a book in 30 days. “The goal was to write a 50,000 word novel in a month. It was a fun challenge. That year my husband, Tom, was deployed (with the military) and I thought it was a great challenge to do while he was away and I just started to write,” she noted. “I started day one and finished on day 29. I wrote about 1,600 words a day.” A physiotherapist in her day job, Dunne had always loved experimenting with the written word and had completed a manuscript two years prior. “I work part-time in a long-term care facility in Ottawa and have worked in Kemptville as well. I always enjoyed writing while I was in school. I never disliked it but it was probably six or seven years ago that I sat down and said I was actually

going to write a novel and finish it,” she said. “It was on my bucket list and I loved it. It’s very therapeutic, but it’s not easy to shut everything around me down.” ‘Treasure in the Flame,’ which also delves into the fantasy and romance worlds, chronicles the adventure of 15-year-old Aminda (the namesake of one of Dunne’s great grandmothers). It is set in the pioneer days in the real-life Kings Landing Historical Settlement in New Brunswick, where Dunne grew up. The settlement, which includes a living history museum and mill, is similar to Upper Canada Village. “I describe it as ‘Anne of Green Gables’ meets ‘Pirates of the Caribbean,’” Dunne commented, adding that it’s a fun, light and adventurous read. “There’s pioneer life in it, but there’s also some adventure, a little bit of magic and some romance.” “...It (Kings Landing) is a great place. It’s a very magical place,” she continued. “When you go into it, you can’t help but think about stories because it’s a living museum..Most of the buildings are operational.” Aminda’s father returns from an outing one evening and falls into a deep sleep from which he doesn’t wake. “The whole story is her (Aminda) trying to figure out what happened to him and keep his mill running,” Dunne explained. Aminda must trust people she encounters, such as the town outcast and a mysterious tinker in order to find out why her father slipped into a coma. The concept for ‘Treasure in the Flame’ is loosely based on an old legend Dunne’s father used to tell her when she was a child. It centered around a man who went off to find treasure in the middle of the night, but there would be a curse on anyone who spoke or made a noise in the presence of the treasure.

“I started to think, what if someone had escaped from the curse? What would happen? I started with that (idea) and things flowed from there,” she said. Road to publishing After letting the book “percolate” for a year, Dunne decided to go about publishing ‘Treasure in the Flame’ in February 2012. She opted to self-publish her first novel so she could experience every aspect of book publishing; from selecting the photo for the cover, to deciding which font and spacing looked the best on its pages. She worked with a professional editor, graphic artist and formatter to achieve her vision. “I wanted it to look like a real book that you would find on a shelf and for it to look professional,” Dunne stressed. “I wanted it to be something I could be proud of.” “It’s such a learning experience to take it (book) from literally the first word and then to see it on a shelf in a store, is pretty darn cool,” Dunne remarked. “...Now I know what to expect (with a publisher).” For some authors, it’s quite difficult to share a book they spent so much time on, but Dunne said it she looked forward to having her three children and the rest of her family read it. “My oldest daughter was the first one to read it and I can’t get enough to keep her in books. It took me six to eight months to get it to a readable state and it took her about eight hours to read it,” she remarked. She said all of her family has read the book and have been “very supportive.” Dunne especially credits the assistance of her husband, Tom, who has taken on much of the public relations for the book. “He’s been so much help,” she said.

It’s all about Brel at Perth’s Full Circle Theatre throughout the month of April with emotion and excitement – and music! The five-person cast move through choreographed group numbers, simply staged solo pieces, comic songs, tragic songs and love songs. There are numbers that will be very familiar, presenting some “Oh, did he write that?” moments and numbers that you may be hearing for the first time. They are all being presented with an updated sound palette, bringing songs that were written in the 50s and 60s to a new millenium. Performers Chris Angel, Kristy Angel, Robert Del Grande, Tracy Noonan and Janice Reid take the audience on a tour of the 20th century in Marathon, down into the bull ring in The Bulls, back to a time of silent movies when Brussels was king, back to first love in I Loved, on to unrequited love in Madeleine, to war, to peace, to death and to the Carousel of Life. Marieke, a haunting melody about loss, is sung in English, French and Flemish. Amsterdam, a roaring song about the docks and the hard world of a sea-port, is set to the tune of Greensleeves. Middle Class is another song about loss, but this time, the loss of youth and ideals, while The Girls And The Dogs uses a quirky irregular metre that tells us why we need both girls and dogs.

And, while the melodies are memorable and the harmonies are wonderful, it is the lyrics that drive the show, with insight and twists that make every song one that provokes thought and interest. Not only do the show’s five performers take on all 27 songs, they also occasionally pick up an instrument to add to the show’s four piece band, who provide everything from trumpet, guitar and piano to electronic sounds. Combined with video backgrounds and even an extra-special surprise video guest performer, the whole package adds up be to the musical theatre event of the season. The intensity, poignancy, energy and excitement of ‘Jacques Brel Is Alive And Well And Living In Paris’ have made it a legend, and BarnDoor’s staging will keep that legend alive. ‘Jacques Brel Is Alive And Well And Living In Paris’ runs April 12, 13, 18, 19, 20 at 8 p.m. and April 14 and 21 at 2 p.m. Tickets for Jacques Brel and details on it and other events at Full Circle Theatre (including full details on BarnDoor Productions’ 2013-2014 season) are on BarnDoor’s website: www.barndoorproductions.ca.

She’s also received the same encouragement from her hometown of Nackawic, a mill town 40 minutes from Fredericton. This Saturday (March 30) she will travel back there to participate in a book signing. Another signing is planned for sometime in April at the Gloucester Chapters. “It will be my first signing in New Brunswick...and I’ve had a huge, supportive audience there,” Dunne stated. Since the release of ‘Treasure in the Flame,’ Dunne finished another full manuscript last November and was accepted by her agent with the Literary Counsel in December. Her agent currently has two of her manuscripts: a young adult fiction piece and an adult contemporary one. “I found her (agent) through a connection I had online. I’m part of a critique group and someone recommended I contact her agent. I did and within a week, the agent had emailed me saying they (Literary Counsel) wanted to represent me,” she said, noting she is also planning to write a sequel to ‘Treasure in the Flame.’ It’s been a whirlwind and the process to publish a book can be arduous, but Dunne said it’s very

fulfilling and something she’d like to eventually tackle full-time. “That’s my dream, to be able to write full-time,” she admitted. “I’m one of those people where life takes you where it does and I accept it. I love to write. I get a lot of pleasure out of sitting down at a computer and just writing and letting my fingers go.” However, this is not where she would have seen herself 10 years ago. “If you would have asked me 10 years ago if I would have a published book, literary agent and more books in the pipeline, I would never have believed you,” Dunne remarked. “I’m having a lot of fun.” “...It’s a small start but I’m hoping this small start will blossom into something bigger,” she added. ‘Treasure in the Flame’ is available on Dunne’s website (www. brendacoreydunne.blogspot.ca), as well as at Mirick’s Landing Country Store in Merrickville, Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble. Digital copies can also be purchased through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Smashwords. Both Merrickville Public Library and the North Grenville Public Library also have copies.

EMC Entertainment – In 1968, when veteran song-writer Mort Shuman came up with the idea of a musical built around the songs of Belgian composer Jacques Brel, he was greeted with scepticism. A musical without a plot? A musical without characters? A musical without dialogue? It couldn’t possibly work. Four years and 1,800 performances later, even the critics had to agree that the show was a smash success. Forty-five years later, ‘Jacques Brel Is Alive And Well And Living In Paris’ has attained legendary status. Its simple format of a small group of performers presenting some of the most heart-felt and intense songs of their time continues to sell tickets and please audiences, as well as provide performers with a unique challenge. Perth’s BarnDoor Productions is bringing the legend to the stage at the Full Circle Theatre, beginning April 12, to close their 18th season. The show moves from laughter to nostalgia, from tears to joy in songs about life, death, loss, love, girls, dogs, bulls and carousels. The musical styles range from folk to rock, from latin to waltz and the music rolls non-stop through two whirlwind acts. Not a long show, by any means, it is nevertheless filled from beginning to end

1959 Impala brings retired couple into classic car hobby EMC Lifestyle - Stan and Helen Earl live in Perth, Ontario, and have both retired from teaching elementary school. They recently purchased a good original 1959 Chevrolet Impala 4-door hardtop, known as a Sport Sedan. It has a 283 cubic inch V8 engine, 2-speed Power Glide transmission, pushbutton radio (AM only), outside rear view mirror (driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s side), 2-speed wipers (no washer), a padded dash, and Roman Red and Snowcrest White finish (some still original, but the more you look, the more you wonder about it). Chevrolet styling for 1959 was delightfully flamboyant, and Stan smiles every time he looks at their car. He saw his first one at age ten, a green 1959 Biscayne 4-door sedan owned by Miss Mills, the Grade 1 teacher at Kemptville Public School. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She probably had to save up a yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s salary to buy that car in those days.â&#x20AC;? Stan and Helen first saw their 1959 Impala with a for sale sign on the Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day weekend in 2011 but drove on by.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;A year later,â&#x20AC;? recalls Stan, â&#x20AC;&#x153;we again drove Mud Lake Road, and there it was, still for sale. This time we stopped and we bought it. When I was 16, I learned to drive on a grey 1960 Chev Biscayne 4-door sedan with standard transmission (â&#x20AC;&#x153;three on the treeâ&#x20AC;?) and this Impala reminded me so much of that time.â&#x20AC;? Stan tells me the UVIP document lists all previous owners going back to 1973. But who owned it before that? Stan phoned the GM Vintage Vehicle Services and learned the car was built in Oshawa on June 26, 1959 and shipped to Manitoba. GM did not know the name of the dealer who sold it. A sticker on the windshield dated

May 18, 1960 indicates the car had parking privileges at RCEME, Electrical Company, at the Kingston (Ontario) Garrison. Stan wonders how the car got from Manitoba to Ontario. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Given the connection to the military at Kingston,â&#x20AC;? Stan theorizes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;someone in the forces may have bought it and then was transferred east. Most likely it was an officer taking a position as an instructor at the RCEME School.â&#x20AC;? Except for its brief time in Manitoba, this car stayed in and around the Kingston area until Stan and Helen brought it to their home in Perth in 2012. The previous owner gave them a 1959 Ontario plate (A.87686), one of the two original

Ontario municipalities welcome long-awaited tools to collect unpaid fines coup millions of dollars for municipalities and most importantly, will ensure that individuals are held responsible for their actions and that justice is served,â&#x20AC;? said Russ Powers, AMO president. Besides denying license plates for unpaid fines related to violations such as speeding tickets, careless driving and driving with no insurance, the proposal makes it easier for municipalities to pursue out-of-province drivers who

run red lights or fail to stop for school buses. Responsibility for POA administration, including courts and fine collection, was transferred to municipalities in 1997. AMOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longstanding call for new tools to collect POA fines was one of its â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;12 Asksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in the 2011 Ontario provincial election. AMO will continue to work with the Ministry of Transportation and

the Ministry of the Attorney General to complete other pending changes in the provincial-municipal action plan to improve POA fine collection. At present the administrative changes necessary to support this legislation may take two years to complete. AMO urges the government to complete these changes as quickly as possible so that municipalities will be able to collect the fines owing.

Ontario families – it’s good for our economy. That’s why our government will continue to work with the agri-food sector, including retailers and food service operators, to bring more Ontario food to the table,” said Kathleen Wynne, Premier and Minister of Agriculture and Food. Promoting local food is part of the new Ontario government’s plan to strengthen the agri-food industry, build stronger communities and create jobs that will grow the economy. The province will hold consultations with stakeholders on a new provincial designation system that could help promote foods of a particular region, standard of production, or unique product attribute. The Ontario agri-food sector contributes more than $34 billion to the provincial economy and employs more than 700,000 people. Ontario’s food processors also purchase about 65 per cent of the good things that are produced on the province’s farms and the province is home to Canada’s largest food processing sector.

Ontario serves up local food bill EMC News – The Ontario government is re-introducing legislation today that, if passed, would help make more local food available in markets, schools, cafeterias, grocery stores and restaurants throughout the province. If passed, the Local Food Act would: Increase local food awareness, access and sales by setting local food goals and targets in consultation with stakeholders; Enable government to work with public sector organizations toward these goals and share information on their progress and results; • Proclaim a “Celebrate Ontario Local Food Week” that would begin the Monday before Thanksgiving; and • Require the government to produce a local food report on its activities to support local food. The proposed legislation is part of a broader local food strategy that encourages the growth and development of markets for foods grown and made in Ontario, and provides funding for innovative and collaborative local food projects. “Eating local isn’t just good for

EMC Lifestyle - “Dear Mr. Turner, Every car I’ve ever owned in Canada over the last 40 years has had a block heater. I sense that this is less common than it used to be. As I begin to consider buying a new car, I’m wondering if block heaters are still necessary or advisable. What circumstances would warrant the extra cost of installing a block heater?” E. M. Ottawa You’re correct in noting that block heaters are not as common as they used to be. The basic line of domestic versus import still applies insomuch as most domestic (Detroit Three) vehicles still have block heaters as standard equipment (but not all) and most Asian and European imports do not. If you plan on parking your vehicle outside or in an unheated and unattached garage, a block heater is worth the trouble. But if you park in an attached or heated garage, and your choice of vehicles doesn’t come with a block heater, I’d say: don’t bother. While just about any new(er) vehicle will start without a block heater in temperatures as low as minus 30 C, having an hour or two of block heater operation means faster starts, faster cabin warm-ups, and better fuel mileage. I’d like to think that was the last winter related question we get, as thoughts of warm spring drives start to take over. But we’re not really through with winter until we have our daily-use vehicles checked for any damage the last very frosty few months may have inflicted. Now is the time to get a seasonal inspection that includes a check of some of the more vulnerable undercarriage components such as splash and underbody shields. These, mostly plastic shielding panels, are often damaged by ice and slush that packs up in wheel wells or from impacts with frozen ice curb clumps. While many consider these parts as expendable bits of trim, they do perform several crucial functions. These shields redirect road water away from engine electrical and air intake systems. They protect somewhat-less-than-

Seizure first aid: Would you know what to do? EMC Lifestyle – As part of Epilepsy Awareness month, the Epilepsy & Seizure Disorder Resource Centre of South Eastern Ontario is emphasizing the importance of knowing how to help someone who is having a seizure. According to Epilepsy Ontario, while one in 100 Canadians have epilepsy, one in 10 people will have a seizure in their lifetime, making it important for everyone to have a basic understanding of seizure first aid. A seizure occurs when there is a sudden, abnormal electrical discharge in the brain. Anyone can experience a seizure as a result of head trauma, a brain infection, drug or alcohol toxicity, high fever, missed medication, stroke, complications of diabetes, or brain tumours. However, if a person experiences two or more unprovoked seizures, they are said to have epilepsy. There are many different types of seizures ranging from a blank stare, to aimless wandering, to a loss of consciousness and convulsions. Most seizures last only from a few seconds to several minutes, and almost all of the time, a seizure will end naturally without any medical intervention. Many misconceptions still exist about how to provide assistance to someone experiencing a seizure. “When I watch medical drama shows on television, I am shocked at how many times the medical staff perform basic seizure first aid incorrectly,” stated Hanna Kitchingman, youth coordinator at the Epilepsy Resource Centre. “When people think of seizures, they tend to think of generalized convulsive seizures, during which a person loses consciousness, falls to the ground, and has convulsion,” Kitchingman continued. While it can be frightening to witness a convulsive seizure, according to Epilepsy Ontario, there are some simple steps to follow when assisting an individual who is having a convulsive seizure: • Remain calm. Seizures may appear

frightening, but they usually last only a few minutes and generally do not require medical attention. • Time the seizure. • Place something soft under the head, and clear the area of any items that may injure the person. • Do not restrain the person. • Do not put anything in the person’s mouth. • As the seizure subsides, roll the person on their side.

• Talk gently to the person and without full recovery between seizures, provide reassurance as they recover or the person is injured, pregnant, or from the seizure. has diabetes. Conversely, if the person has never had a seizure before, then a A common misconception when seizure is always a medical emergency, it comes to seizure first aid is that it and 911 must be called. is always a medical emergency that An important mandate of the Epilepsy requires an ambulance to be called. Resource Centre is to provide education However, if an individual has epilepsy, workshops about epilepsy, seizures, and then seizures are typically not medical seizure first aid. emergencies, unless the seizure lasts “We offer workshops tailored to the for more than five minutes, repeats needs of the group, for all ages. These

sessions are offered at no cost, and enable participants to develop a beneficial life skill,” stated Kitchingman. Having a good understanding of the basic knowledge of seizure first aid can be extremely helpful to people who may have seizures in public. For more information about epilepsy, seizure first aid, please contact the organization by phone at 613-5426222 or visit their website at www. epilepsyresource.org.

Cooking at home can help you save money, time and be healthy By CAROLE CHANG

EMC Lifestyle – March was Nutrition Month and the theme this year was ‘Plan, Shop, Cook and Enjoy!’ Cooking your own meals might seem like a lot of work, but it doesn’t have to be. Read on for tips on making more meals at home. Keep it simple. Buy one main ingredient. Make three meals. Plan meals and shop around one main ingredient. Check out these three easy-to-make meals with just one main ingredient: lean ground turkey, beef or chicken. Brown the ground meat or poultry and then divide into three equal portions for use in: • Sensational salad – Season browned meat or poultry with a little chili powder, cumin, garlic powder and lime juice. Add to a salad of leafy greens, along with defrosted frozen corn, black beans and chopped tomatoes. • One-pot pasta – Toss together cooked whole grain pasta, browned meat or poultry, washed baby spinach, a can of diced tomatoes, and minced garlic. Heat until warmed through. Sprinkle with freshly grated Parmesan cheese. • Simple wrap – Fill a whole grain tortilla with shredded romaine lettuce, sliced red pepper, shredded carrot and lower sodium salsa. Add browned meat or poultry and wrap it up for lunch or dinner.

Nutrition Tips

scratch allow you to control what goes into them. Packaged meals can be more expensive and less healthy than meals you make at home. Lower your costs by going homemade. Try these fresh ideas to lower the amount of sodium you get, and get cooking. Make your own soups, sauces and salad dressings. A little basil combined with crushed tomatoes makes a simple pasta sauce. Enjoy more vegetables and fruit. They’re naturally sodium free. Whenever possible, use fresh or frozen instead of canned. However if you do buy canned vegetables, rinse them off to lower the sodium. Buy canned fruit that is packed in water or juice, or rinse the syrup off before eating. Cook pasta and whole grains, such as rice, barley and quinoa, without adding salt. Try sodium-free chicken broth for delicious flavour. Rinse canned beans, peas and lentils to wash away some of the added sodium. Look for sodium-free brands, too. Try to use beans in a chili instead of ground beef as these nutritious legumes are packed with good nutrition and they are budget friendly as well. Buy plain, unseasoned cuts of fresh meat, poultry or fish. Season lightly at home with herbs and Get fresh!

Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Colitis Foundation of Canada offers scholarship

organizations and health care providers alike better understand the impact of these diseases on peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lives. AbbVie recognizes the need for better disease diagnosis and monitoring to help improve the lives of millions of people affected by this chronic and debilitating disease.â&#x20AC;? IBD incidence rates on the rise Inflammatory bowel disease, or IBD, is a group of disorders that causes the intestines to become inflamed and ulcerated. This is caused by an abnormal response of the bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s immune system. Arecent survey conducted by the CCFC found that 69 per cent of people who had IBD when they were young were delayed in completing their post-secondary education. Eighty-nine per cent who had IBD as a child felt that they could have achieved more at school without their disease. Since there is currently no known cure or cause, young people need strategies to achieve their best long-term health despite their diagnosis. Unfortunately, a majority of people living with IBD endure many challenges when it comes to their education. With intensive medical treatments, debilitating symptoms and lengthy hospital stays, keeping up with school can become extremely difficult. The AbbVie IBD Scholarship Program, in partnership with CCFC, is designed for applicants of any age entering into or attending a Canadian-based post-secondary institution. Applicants must be: â&#x20AC;˘ A legal and permanent resident of Canada; â&#x20AC;˘ Diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease by a physician; â&#x20AC;˘ Seeking an associateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, undergraduate, or graduate degree from a Canadian university; college; or enrolled in a trade school educational program; â&#x20AC;˘ Enrolled in or awaiting acceptance from a Canadian-based posteducational institution for the Fall semester of 2013; and â&#x20AC;˘ A student who demonstrates academic aspiration and strives to sustain an optimal level of wellness in spite of their IBD, allowing them to excel to reach their personal and academic goals and inspiring others to do the same. Visit www.ccfc.ca for full application details.

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Canada has one of the highest reported prevalence of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in the world and 20 to 30 per cent of people with IBD are diagnosed before the age of 20. To support Canadian students living with IBD and raise awareness about this chronic disease, the AbbVie IBD Scholarship Program is accepting nominations from young people living with IBD. In partnership with the Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Colitis Foundation of Canada (CCFC), the AbbVie IBD Scholarship Program is designed to award students who are living well with IBD, and strive to sustain an optimal level of wellness allowing them to excel while inspiring others to do the same. Through an unrestricted educational grant by AbbVie, CCFC will extend seven one-time scholarships of up to $5,000 to students living with IBD who are entering into or are currently attending a post-secondary educational institution. Students of all ages are welcome to apply and the scholarship can be used for any Canadian postsecondary institution. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am committed to living each day to the fullest and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so grateful to the CCFC and AbbVie for giving me the opportunity and inspiration to push harder and help me excel at my academic goals,â&#x20AC;? says Clinton Shard, one of seven 2012 â&#x20AC;&#x153;gutsyâ&#x20AC;? scholarship winners. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While the monetary scholarship provides an incentive, it also represents an investment in assisting students living with IBD and helping us achieve our dreams.â&#x20AC;? Through initiatives such as the scholarship program, AbbVie aims to continue accelerating the recognition of the burden of IBD and help further the global dissemination of evolving approaches to better care for people living with IBD. â&#x20AC;&#x153;AbbVie is proud to partner again this year with CCFC for the AbbVie IBD Scholarship Program. This initiative is a great example of a partnership that makes a difference in peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lives,â&#x20AC;? stated Felipe Pastrana, general manager of AbbVie Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While our name, AbbVie, has changed â&#x20AC;&#x201C; our commitment to the IBD community endures. Over the years, AbbVie has shown continued commitment to people living with IBD by helping
