Inside Violations force Almonte COMMUNITY businesses to shut doors

“I recently built a massage therapy room just outside the yoga studio and this is when the whole problem started. I did not think I needed a permit to put up a wall. I was wrong and I expressed to Len that I would be willing to work with him step by step to correct the issues,” said Lopes. “I have not done any work to the structure that would jeopardize any safety issues at all…if there are any safety issues I am very willing to help work with them every step of the way.” Lopes stressed to council that he is working hard with an architect to rectify any problems. Councillors discussed a number of possibilities in keeping the building open, including giving Lopes a time frame in which to complete the needed repairs and obtain correct permits. However, Smith explained that if council allowed the business to stay open, the town would be accepting the liability. “I don’t think we should do that,” he stated. “This business is a valuable service to the community, however it’s a life and safety issue,” said Coun. Bernard Cameron. “We would be remiss if we don’t support our staff…no business is as important as the life of an individual…It’s not a liability issue it’s a life safety issue.” Smith emphasized that he did not want to kick any business out. “I want to ensure businesses are safe,” he said. “I have to follow the building code and it is unfortunate the way things went down.” Coun. Rick Minnille moved a motion to allow the yoga studio to stay open “subject to providing three weeks to the owner to develop a plan to address all fire and building deficiencies; subject to the CAO (chief administrative officer) obtaining a legal opinion as to the ability of the town to provide this approval.” In a recorded vote of four yeas to six nays the motion was defeated. Smith has outlined to Lopes what needs to be completed to reopen the business and the two are working together to follow the proper steps.

RELAY FOR LIFE

EMC News – Three businesses at 500 Ottawa St. in Almonte have been closed due to several Ontario Building Code violations. Rising Sun Yoga was closed on April 11 and after further inspections and review of the code, Rising Tele-Communications and Bjork Massage Therapy were closed on April 24. Marlys Symington, co-owner of the studio with Mary Biggs, spoke passionately to Town of Mississippi Mills council about the studio being closed at a special meeting April 23. “Our door was closed with no warning and currently we are the only business that was forced to shut down,” said Symington. “There are a few minor things that (the owner) has already begun to put in place. We are asking (council) to vote for us to return to our space, effective immediately and operate in the space while the work is being done… We would like to work together to make this a win-win situation for everyone so we do not have to close our doors.” Len Smith, the chief building official with Mississippi Mills was brought in to inspect the location in mid-March after Bob Machan, deputy fire chief with the Mississippi Mills Fire Department had been dealing with eight fire code violations on the premise since November. Smith explained to the Canadian Gazette the building owner had not received the necessary building permits and had not followed the proper steps with the upgrades. “There are numerous building code violations…there is no requirement for notice under the code and there were too many fire, life safety and egress issues on site to allow it to stay open any longer. Without a permit, the town accepted part of the liability and I had no choice to suspend occupancy,” said Smith. Tony Lopes, who has owned the Almonte Fitness Centre for 23 years and owns the building at 500 Ottawa St., then addressed council.

EMC News – Hope floats. At least it did April 27 when helium-filled yellow balloons were released into the sky, each with a silent message of hope – hope that cancer would some day be gone, or that a cure for the malicious disease will soon be found. Debby Lytle, chair of the Communities in Bloom organization of Carleton Place, was all smiles when they showed off their latest growing project – a second Garden of Hope, this one on Coleman St. East. This strip of land is planted with 2,000

Daffodils from a second Garden of Hope in Carleton Place were starting to bloom on April 27, just in time for the dedication ceremony by Communities in Bloom (CIB). The event was one of hope and joy for those in attendance. Above: Volunteers release helium filled balloons into the sky signifying their wish to send a prayer of hope.

daffodil bulbs, donated last year by Dave Flatters, owner of the Carleton Place Nursery Ltd., located on Highway 29 which is celebrating its 25th year in business this year. “This has been a real community effort,” Lytle said. “It’s wonderful to have so much support.” Karen Fuller, the Canadian Cancer Society’s daffodil pin coordinator, was on hand for the celebration. Lytle said last year, the Communities in Bloom committee planted the bulbs in their latest Garden of Hope. Their first garden at Riverside Park has 4,000, which were planted in 2011.

“They represent contributions made to the cancer society, in memory of someone who had died with cancer, someone who is currently fighting it, or for a volunteer working with various projects,” Lytle said of the bulbs. A plaque was also unveiled on Coleman St., signifying this project is a Communities in Bloom effort, supported by the local nursery. Flatters said he sold the bulbs to the group at cost the first year of the project, and last year, he opted to make a donation. “My dad had cancer,” he said. “It’s personal…it lets me remember him.”

John Gorka concert to support ALS Society May 6 in Perth

EMC News – This spring, Community Home Support – Lanark County is introducing two additional bereavement programs to its list of services. The first is a return of last summer’s adult walking group that offers grievers’ an opportunity to walk and chat to others who have experienced a recent loss. This year we are moving the walk to an evening time slot to make it available to people who are either working or otherwise unable to attend during the day. The group will meet on the first Thursday of every month, starting Thursday, June 6 and run throughout the summer and fall months. Walkers will leave Starbucks on Highway 7 at 6 p.m., walk the Beckwith Trail and return to Starbucks by 8 p.m. for a tea or coffee. In addition to the return of the walking group, Community Home Support – Lanark County is also piloting a new adult group. This is a seven-week grief recovery group designed to help grievers to move beyond their pain and toward a richer and more rewarding life. It is open to those who have experienced a loss due to death, but also to those who have experienced a variety of other losses including divorce, retirement, relocation, or pet loss. The basis of the grief recovery method is that while grief is a normal response to loss, most of the information passed on within our society

about dealing with grief is not helpful. The reason for this is that grief is the emotional response to loss, but most of the information we have learned about dealing with loss is intellectual. The grief recovery method focuses on emotional information related to relationships. It provides a series of correct action choices that help people move beyond the pain caused by loss to recovery by discovering and completing all of the undelivered communications that accrue in the relationships we have. This group runs on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., starting on May 21 and ending on July 2. The group will meet in the Community Home Support office, Suite 11, 50 Bennett Ave, Carleton Place. It will be facilitated by certified grief recovery specialist Barbara Carroll. Those interested in either the walking or the grief recovery groups should contact Rebecca Bowie in the Community Home Support – Lanark County office at 613-2676400, or by email at rebeccab@chslc.ca. There is no charge for the walking group. There is a fee of $13 for the grief recovery group and this covers the cost of a book published by the Grief Recovery Institute which participants will use throughout the sevenweek sessions.

After a number of very successful releases on High Street, Gorka decided that the shifting dynamics of the music industry were not for him, and resigned with Red House Records. Gorka always had a clear vision of priorities; art and audience first...and success will follow...and it has. He added family to that priorities list, and now maintains a successful touring schedule of nearly 100 dates per year: not enough for all the promoters who want him, but it gives him the balance he values in his life, which has always been more important to him than any potential commercial success in the music industry. Gorka will perform in concert on Monday, May 6 at 8 p.m. at the Full Circle Theatre (26 Craig St. in Perth). Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the door and are available by calling 613-267-6817 or http://shadowfax. on.ca.

Drummond Central School student raises funds for LAWS By ASHLEY KULP akulp@perfprint.ca

EMC News – One young girl has turned her hobby of making jewelry into a way of helping local animals in need. Drummond Central School Grade 4 student Julia Jack was recognized by the Lanark Animal Welfare Society (LAWS) on Friday, April 26 for coordinating a fundraiser on the nonprofit organization’s behalf. Through her Julia Jack Furry Fundraiser, since March 4 she has sold 153 handmade bracelets (at $5 a pop) to classmates, family and friends and has brought in $1,878.10 so far. It’s a far cry from the original $200 goal she had the idea earlier this year after her Perth area school participated in a penny drive for LAWS, located on the outskirts of Smiths Falls. “I knew I wanted to do my own fundraiser, so my mom gave me a few suggestions like CHEO (Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario) or LAWS,” Jack remarked, who refers to herself as an animal lover. She has a dog and cat at home. “We’ve never purchased through LAWS, but I grew up hearing about it,” added Jack’s mom Susan. “It’s a fantastic organization and I love that it’s a no-kill organization.” When it came time to decide what type of fundraiser, it was a no brainer for Jack, who loves arts and crafts. She became so skilled at creating the bracelets, it took her just “five minutes to make one and I would make four at a time,” she said.

Jack was honoured by LAWS during a special assembly at the Perth area school April 26. Above, right: LAWS humane education coordinator Beth Searle gives her a certificate.

During an assembly in front of the rest of the school and with mom, dad Colin and little brother Thomas looking on, LAWS humane education coordinator Beth Searle, presented Jack with a certificate of appreciation for her efforts. She was also given a special handmade gift from LAWS staff as a thank you. “She is an amazingly kind and compassionate young lady who has done so much for her community that we at LAWS are astounded and

quite humbled,” Searle said of Jack. “We’re all exceptionally thankful for Julia because she’s awesome!” School principal Margaret Fritz initiated contact with LAWS, telling them about the success of the Julia Jack Furry Fundraiser. “Beth said it was absolutely amazing and asked if she could come and meet Julia, the school and bring a special friend,” she said. “We’re very proud of Julia here.” That friend was English chocolate Labrador Cooper, who Searle adopted from LAWS years ago. After the presentation to Jack, Searle showed children the proper way to greet a dog and what to do if they encounter a strange pet. Susan was thrilled by the success of her daughter’s fundraiser and proud of her for taking it on. “I never expected her to do this well (with the fundraiser),” she commented. “It’s blown our minds and we couldn’t be more proud of her. It’s wonderful to hear these things coming back from her teachers and staff. They’ve all been so supportive.” Searle indicated Jack’s donation will go towards the overall costs of running the shelter, including purchasing food, cleaning products, as well as helping ensure the basic wellbeing of the animals at LAWS. Jack also earned funds through special cupcake days held at the school. She will continue to sell her bracelets until June 4 and may seek sponsorships through local businesses to continue the initiative next year.

LCIH hosts a popular webbased youth violence prevention project called Truth for Rural Youth (TRY) that is sponsoring the contest. Local youth are encouraged to visit the TRY website at www.trylanarkcounty.com and check out the various topics covered then create some kind or artwork that shows how they relate to those topics. Topics range from abuse, teen dating violence, healthy relationships, gender roles, activism and so much more. TRY is asking for any videos, music, written pieces or visual art that Lanark County youth create themselves. Project staff is able to support any youth who might need supplies like paints, video cameras and anything else they may need to participate in the contest. “We really want to give our youth a safe way to express the truth about their experiences with these issues,” noted project coordinator Sarah Bingham. “Creating art as a way of expressing yourself is such a powerful tool

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

Dental coalition flashes pearly whites to community for support DEAR EDITOR: The Tri-County Dental Coalition (TCDC) would like to take this opportunity to thank those in the community who help in our mission to provide emergency dental treatment to those who cannot afford it. The services that the TCDC is able to help provide would not be possible without the hard work of many community members and local organizations. Specifically, we would like to thank the United Way of Leeds and Grenville and the United Way of Lanark County for providing grant monies to be used for treatment provision and administration costs. Several local organizations, such as the Civitan and Rotary Clubs of Smiths Falls, Trinity United Church in Smiths Falls, St. James Church in Perth, Holy Trinity Anglican Church in Merrickville, Westminster Presbyterian Church, St. John’s Anglican Church in Smiths Falls and the Central Lanark Pastoral Charge have generously donated to the TCDC. Individual community members have also made donations, and other

groups have organized fundraisers like the Lanark Community Programs Fundraising Lunch and the Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper in Lombardy to benefit the coalition. The TCDC would also like to extend thanks to the dental community who see the clients that are helped by these donated funds, and often provide maximum service with our limited budget. The tri-county area is also lucky to have dental professionals in the community who have donated services in their own practices to the people in greatest need of help with their oral health. We look forward to another year of increasing access to dental care for those in need. The TCDC is always looking for more members. If you would like to volunteer, donate, or know of someone in need of our services, you can contact us at dental@rideauchs.ca or 613-283-1952 ext 142. Rebecca Shams BDSc (DH), RDH Oral health promoter and Tri-County Dental Coalition representative

COMMENTARY Save a life EMC Editorial – We could all be waiting to save a life right now. While many hear about the importance of giving blood, and it is an admirable thing to do, we should all consider taking that a step further and become an organ and tissue donor. Currently, there are more than 1,500 people waiting for an organ transplant in Ontario and 95 died last year because that day never came. And only 22 per cent in Ontario are registered organ and tissue donors with the Trillium Gift of Life Network, according to the organization, which recently marked national Organ and Tissue Donation Awareness Week April 21 to 28. This is astonishing as everyone who makes the decision to be a donor can possibly save up to eight lives and help improve those of 75 others. Organs donated include heart, liver, lungs, pancreas, kidneys and small bowel, while skin, bone, cardiovascular tissue, corneas and connective tissue can also be used. So why aren’t more of us doing this? It takes little time and doesn’t cost a thing. Register with the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care’s database (at www. beadonor.ca or by visiting a ServiceOntario centre) and carry a signed donor card with you at all times in your wallet. Be sure to also have a discussion with your family and loved ones on your wishes. You never know when you or a family member will be faced with a difficult decision. A stranger could be the difference between life and death or maybe signing a donor card could ensure your loved ones live on after they’re gone. For more information on becoming an organ or tissue donor, visit www.giftoflife.on.ca.

Voices raised in praise were comfort for Mary EMC Lifestyle – The organist at the Lutheran church did her best. But when Aunt Lizzie came from Regina on her yearly visit, she never failed to comment on how the old organ needed a tuning. She once added, “Maybe what is needed is a new organist.” Well, the chance of getting anyone to replace the organist out there in Northcote was just about nil, and the possibility of getting the instrument tuned was just as remote. The woman who sat on the little swivel stool every Sunday, played for the satisfaction it gave her and other than a few words of praise from the minister at the Strawberry Social in the summer, that was all the pay she got. The organ looked like it had gone through the war! And when I was very young, sitting right behind it, I often thought a ghost lived in it, because for a few seconds after the last note was played, there was a wheezing sound come out of it, like someone drawing his last breath. There was a single row of plugs that looked like spools of thread, and

even from a distance, I could see printing on them. These “plugs” often seemed to confuse the organist, who would push and pull at them, which created more wheezing, or no sound at all. One Sunday, in her frustration, she pulled and pushed the same “plug” and the whole thing came out in her hand. She simply placed it on top of the organ, and there didn’t seem to be a whit of difference in the sound, even without the missing thing. I noticed it sat on top of the organ for weeks, before someone removed it, and it was never replaced or seen again. The yawning hole where it had once been, remained as long as we went to the Lutheran church. The foot pedals held a special fascination for me. There were two side by side. At one time they were covered in tapestry, but they had worn away to the perfect shape of the organist’s black laced shoes, which told me she had been playing for longer than I was alive! I thought: she must be very old indeed. Just like the organ. Since there was no other place to Vice President & Regional Publisher Mike Mount mmount@perfprint.ca 613-283-3182, ext. 104

Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

put them, at special services, bouquets of flowers sat on a little round disc on the side of the organ. My older and wiser sister Audrey said that was where a lamp was placed if there was something going on in the church at night, so the organist could see the keys. Flowers were placed there at Easter and at Christmastime, and I used to think it would be nice if someone brought flowers every week. But of course, that would never do for a staid and sober congregation like the Lutherans at Northcote! We hardly ever saw the face of the organist. Her back was to the pews, and I often spent most of the service trying to count the number of big grey hairpins that held the fat bun at News Editors: Laurie Weir, Joe Morin, Ashley Kulp REPORTERS: Stacey Roy, Tara Gesner, Desmond Devoy, Tiffany Lepack, Sabine Gibbins DISTRIBUTION: Lori Sommerdyk, 613-284-0124 ,ext. 27 CLASSIFIEDS/REGIONAL ROUNDUP: Fax: 613-283-5909 Judy Michaelis Email: jmichaelis@perfprint.ca Lee Ann Gilligan Email: lgilligan@perfprint.ca Jennifer Coughlin Email: jcoughlin@perfprint.ca

the back of her head. The bun hid her neck, and one Sunday I got the giggles which I had trouble controlling when I thought her head looked like a turnip sitting on a narrow cloth-covered shelf. Audrey had to give me a few pokes with her finger to get me to sober up. We never knew if there was going to be a choir. It didn’t seem to be organized to the point where you could expect to see the same faces every Sunday, even though once a week, there was supposed to be choir practice. Who showed up on those nights, depended on other events going on in the community which were considered more important. We could always count on one dedicated soul who never failed to sit in the very middle of the little row of straight-backed chairs on the small platform at the front of the church. She often drowned out the organist, and one Sunday she was singing one hymn while the organist was playing something entirely different. Both went on doing their own thing, as the minister sat in the big high backed velvet chair with his 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

eyes closed, rubbing his forehead. My sister Audrey had a lovely voice, but she was very shy about singing alone. She had no trouble at the Northcote School when we belted out “God Save the King” every morning, but singing in church was a different kettle of fish. When she was ordered by Mother to do so, her knees shook like a bowl of jelly, sitting beside me in our pew. But when she got the first three or four notes out, she sang like a bird. I would look around the church and the people as if to say, “That’s my sister, you know.” The old organ, the organist who never missed a Sunday as long as we lived in Northcote, the familiar hymns, the voices raised in praise, and the tattered hymn books all created a warm and comfortable feeling deep in my heart. Like the neighbours around us, always there when a hand was needed, the sounds of the organ and the voices raised in praise, gave me a safe feeling, enabling me to shut out all else around me, and on Sunday, even the Depression seemed remote and far away. • 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.

Join Walk for Wildlife set for May 11 in Lanark County By MARY ROBINSON

EMC Events – Join the Canadian Wildlife Federation (CWF) and the Rideau Trail Association (RTA) at the Baird Trail on Saturday, May 11 in the annual Walk for Wildlife. Registration starts at 10:30 a.m. and the walk will be underway by 11 a.m. The Baird Trail, a scenic woodland area, is approximately 20 kilometres north of Perth at 1024 Herron Mills Road, (Lanark County Road 8). There is no registration fee to participate. The walk will be guided by a professional naturalist or guide, through woodlands and a beaver meadow, on a well marked trail. The pace will be slow. The route is appropriate for most age groups, as there are different loops from one to three kilometres in length. Children are welcome, so come out with the family and enjoy the beauty of nature, but please leave your dog at home. If we are lucky we may catch some glimpses of wildlife. Please wear appropriate footwear (such as hiking shoes or runners) and protective clothing. You should also bring some drinking water, a snack or lunch, bug spray, sun protection and/or rain gear. You may also wish to bring your camera and binoculars. The walk will go ahead,

rain or shine. The CWF Walk for Wildlife encourages all Canadians to get outside and explore the beauty of the wildlife and natural spaces in their own region. Participants can add the number of kilometres they walk to the national tally by logging them online at WalkforWildlife.ca. The goal is to log 15,000 (or more) kilometres across the country, creating national awareness about Canadian habitats and the wildlife that calls them home. CWF will be counting kilometres until May 22, the International Day for Biological Diversity. People unable to join our walk on May 11 can still be a part of the Walk for Wildlife by hiking on a nature trail, strolling through a park or participating in any number of other outdoor activities that will allow them to connect with native animals, plants and habitats. “By encouraging people to get acquainted with some of the iconic species and scenic places that exist right across the country,

Come out and see what the view looks like in May when the RTA and the Canadian Wildlife Federation host Walk for Wildlife Saturday, May 11 on the Baird Trail, 20 kilometres north of Perth.

we want to inspire Canadians to an even greater commitment to wildlife and habitat conservation,” says Wade Luzny, CWF’s chief executive officer and executive vice-president. “We want to leave a lasting legacy, not only for wildlife but also for our children.” In addition to creating awareness about wildlife and habitat conservation, there are many other benefits to participating in the Walk for Wildlife. For example, walking is part of a healthy lifestyle and participating in this Walk will help you get some exercise while enjoying the nature that surrounds you. You may also gain a new appreciation for the natural spaces in Lanark County, or if you have not yet visited the Baird Trail, you can venture into a new area. For additional information, please contact RTA member Susan Samila at 613-264-1196 or ssamila@storm.ca. Mary Robinson is a member of the Rideau Trail Association. R0012062252

UCLG receives positive emergency medical services review

Counties and CUPE ratify EMS deal The United Counties of Leeds and Grenville and the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) department have signed a collective agreement with the Canadian Union of Public Employers and its Local 4440. The agreement gives both full and part-time paramedics employed by the counties a two per cent wage increase in 2013 and two per cent increase in 2014. This means paramedics will

go from making $33.90 per hour last year to $34.58 this year and $35.27 in 2014. EMS chief Chris Lloyd said the increase puts Leeds Grenville paramedics in the “middle of the pack” when compared to other ambulance services in eastern Ontario. Counties council passed a bylaw Thursday, April 25 ratifying the agreement. The counties employ 104 paramedics with approximately 50 per cent of them full-time employees. The agreement includes some improvements to benefits and an increase in the shift premium. The agreement is effective from Jan. 1, 2013 to Dec. 31, 2014.

Moving Upstream, is a five-year plan (2013 to 2018) focusing on preventative care and the promotion of healthy lifestyles. Dr. Stewart noted the health unit is reaching out to all communities in the tri-county area. “We’re really working hard at being more responsive and accessible to people,” she said, noting it is one of the messages she heard while participating in the counties Integrated Community Sustainability Plan (ICSP) process last year. Dr. Stewart was a member of the ICSP Community Liaison Committee. Bags containing an assortment of gardening seeds were handed out to all members of the joint services comHealth unit strategic plan presented mittee by Dr. Stewart.

Hike for Hospice in Perth this Sunday EMC Events – A group of dedicated volunteers, friends, families and supporters and some local notables from all over Lanark County will be taking a short walk through Perth on Sunday, May 5, to mark the beginning of Palliative Care Week in Canada and to raise funds for care in our communities. And they are hoping you will join in as well. The Lanark County Hike for Hospice is a two-kilometre walk from the Crystal Palace. The fundraiser is a team effort of the Volunteer Hospice Visiting Service/ Bereavement Program of Lanark County and Dignity House Hospice, both of which provide hospice and palliative care for Lanark County residents.

There is still time to donate, and there is still time to sign up and walk with us to raise funds for something we all care about: the expectation of being treated with dignity and respect when someone we care for is at their most vulnerable. There will be a barbecue, live music and a silent auction. Registration starts at noon, with the walk beginning at 1 p.m. All funds raised here stay here in Lanark County. To register and start fundraising go to www.chpca.net/hike or pick up a pledge package at Bayshore Home Health in Smiths Falls, or the Volunteer Hospice Visiting Service offices in Perth or Carleton Place.

EMC News – The following are highlights of the regular United Counties of Leeds and Grenville council and the joint services committee meetings held April 25 at the counties administration building in Brockville. The Leeds Grenville Emergency Medical Services (EMS) department is maintaining a good level of ambulance service a report has found. A service review, required by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care every three years, was completed last Dec. 11 to 12 by a peer review team composed of EMS chiefs and paramedics from other jurisdictions, as well as Emergency Health Services staff. The assessment of the Leeds Grenville EMS department found it substantively meets ambulance service certification criteria and legislated requirements and was commended for its well-stocked vehicles and its thorough Quality Assurance program. Some areas that require attention were identified as general documentation as well as fleet and equipment files, according to EMS chief Chris Lloyd. “Our ultimate goal is to have no review findings (for improvements),” he said. The department will now respond within 30 days in order to renew its certificate with the province to operate an ambulance service. The week of May 19 to 25 is National Emergency Medical Services day.

Dull, Boring and interesting things about Scotland EMC Lifestyle – Don’t let the headline fool you. Scotland is anything but dull and boring. I will explain the heading later! This time of year, with spring finally – mercifully – in the air, many Canadians are dreaming of summer vacations. My wife Kathleen and I are fortunate to have done a lot of traveling in the past 20 years. For us travel is about experiencing the history and culture of other regions or countries and meeting some of the locals in the process. One of our frequent destinations is the United Kingdom where we have family and friends. We have an abiding love for the history, culture and people of the British Isles and Ireland. Partly due to this column and my writing career in general many people are aware of my interest in travel. This time of year I often receive overtures from readers, acquaintances, family and friends asking questions about certain places we have visited. I even hear from my travel agent on occasion asking questions about specific things we have experienced during our time in Britain. Last week a reader in Beckwith Township emailed to ask which places in the U.K. I most recommend. She and her husband are planning a visit. I gave her several ideas but stressed that seeing the highlights in the capital, London, are a good first step. Also high on my list of recommendations are Yorkshire, England’s largest county and Scotland, one of my absolute favourite places in the world. At Easter my youngest sister Susan, who lives in Edmonton, was home for

the holiday. Sue told me that she, her husband Steve and their 10-year-old son Alexander are planning a trip to Europe this summer. She asked me some specific questions about Scotland with an emphasis on Edinburgh which is one of the cities they plan to tour. We have been to Scotland six times BY JEFF MAGUIRE since 1999 including several extended stays. Four of the visits have revolved around special events in the village of you enjoy big cities then Glasgow and Comrie in Perthshire. Comrie is twinned Edinburgh have much to offer.

deadly serious and he makes his case well. How about this for a list of famous names from Scotland! Alexander Fleming, the inventor of penicillin; Alexander Graham Bell, the inventor of the telephone (his most famous invention has a huge Canadian connection of course); James Watt, inventor of the steam engine or famous Edinburgh-born writers Sir Walter Scott, Robert Louis Stevenson and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Scott’s statue stands prominently in Edinburgh city centre. We have visited Scott’s home, Abbotsford House at Melrose in the Scottish Borders. It is an absolutely fascinating place. Of course what list of Scottish people would be complete without reference to poet Robert Burns, philosopher and economist Adam Smith, Bonnie Prince Charlie, Mary Queen of Scots, William Wallace (of ‘Braveheart’ fame) and folk hero Rob Roy MacGregor. It was the Scots who formed the world’s first literate society. As long ago as 1750 the male literacy in Scotland was estimated at 75 per cent, compared with 55 per cent in neighbouring England. Scots invented the modern idea of democracy not to mention free market capitalism. Herman points out that in the 18th and 19th Centuries the Scots made significant contributions to science, philosophy, literature, education, medicine and politics along with business and commerce. For people living in eastern Ontario, the connections to Scotland are endless. I have mentioned the Carleton Place

linkage with Comrie which is an historic one. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention Perth, Scotland. It is the nearest large centre to Comrie by the way. Perth, Ontario is the namesake for Perth, Scotland and the centres have forged close connections. Now, an explanation about Dull and Boring! Not long ago a lady from Aberfeldy, Scotland (we stayed there for a week once) was on a cycling holiday in the United States’ Pacific Northwest. Her route took her through the town of Boring, Oregon. She immediately thought of the hamlet of Dull (it means “meadow” in Gaelic) which is also in Perthshire, just down the road from Aberfeldy and not far from Comrie. She approached people in Dull about establishing some kind of official linkage. Dull has just 50 residents and is too small to be a “sister city” of Boring, population 12,000. Communications began and last spring Dull community councillor Marjorie Keddie received “a declaration of sistership” from officials in Boring. The link has been forged, signs are planned and a delegation from Boring is scheduled to visit Dull this year. It is hoped the unique relationship will lead to increased tourism for both regions. Dull and Boring aside, I hope I have tempted some of you to consider Scotland when making your travel plans. I guarantee you won’t regret it!

The stunning landscape of proposed Thaydene Nene National Park – over 33,000 km2 of boreal and tundra landscape located around and beyond the shores of the East Arm of Great Slave Lake, Northwest Territories. The Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society is working to build the public support necessary to permanently protect it through a partnership between the Lutsel K’e Dene First Nation and Parks Canada. Éric Hébert-Daly, the national executive director of the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society will speak during the 25th anniversary celebration of the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists at their fourth annual banquet, Spring Gathering 2013, May 16 at the Almonte Civitan Club.

MVFN May 16 spring banquet celebrates 30 years of organization By CATHY KEDDY

EMC Events – The Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists (MVFN), born in the spring of 1988, will celebrate their 25th anniversary at their fourth annual banquet – Spring Gathering 2013 on Thursday, May 16. The keynote presentation titled, ‘Looking Back and Looking Ahead: Nurturing Our National Nature,’ will be given by Éric Hébert-Daly, the national executive director of the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society. Regardless of the nature of our passion, it seems that we often fail to fully appreciate one accomplishment before moving on to the next task and, further, we do not reflect sufficiently upon the path of past successes. This is an opportunity to celebrate our spectacular national, provincial and territorial parks, and to reflect on the protection of these natural treasures. Looking back…who were the people, what were the events, and which places stand out in

our history of natural heritage conservation? Take our national parks, for example. Our first national park, Banff, was created in 1885 when tourism and commercialization were its key mandates. It was not until the National Parks Act of 1930 that our parks became places of preservation. Further, 2013 marks the 25th nniversary of the adoption of ecological integrity as the guiding principle for managing our national parks. These are but a few of the many milestones in our 128-year national park history. What other landmark events can you recall? Looking ahead to 2038 – the next 25 years – how should we proceed to nurture our national nature? Which elements of our natural heritage most need our attention? What have we learned about nurturing it over the last quarter-century? There has been a major shift in our understanding of best practices for shaping our natural legacy as HébertDaly will describe. How do we fit into this picture? MVFN invites you to Spring

Gathering 2013, to look back and look ahead along the path of nature conservation while enjoying a show case of gorgeous samples of Canada’s natural beauty – places that most of us will know through photographs alone. MVFN’s Spring Gathering 2013 will take place Thursday May 16 at the Almonte Civitan Community Hall, 500 Almonte St. (just west of Highway 29). The reception will begin at 6 p.m., and at 6:45 p.m., the banquet followed by the presentation will take place. Tickets are $30, which must be purchased in advance by Friday, May 10, will be available in Almonte at Gilligallou Bird (Heritage Court, Mill St.), in Carleton Place at Read’s Book Shop (Lansdowne Ave.), in Lanark at Lanark Living Realty (George St.) and in Perth at The Office (Wilson St. E.). Please contact MVFN’s Brenda Boyd at 613-256- 2706 for further ticket information. Cathy Keddy is the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists program chair. THE EMC - 21 - Thursday, May 2, 2013

RODGERS Rosalyn Gail Friends and family lost a beautiful smile and a very unique, caring and positive person when Rosalyn Rodgers died peacefully on Friday April 26th, 2013. Rosalyn had a sharp intellect, doing accounting and taxes were easy. She was competitive but fair. She took up running and did it well, same with cross country skiing. Her downhill skiing style was fearless. It was a joy to play tennis with her; it was not about the game but the people. Canoe tripping was a passion, enjoying nature and the challenge of the paddle and the portage. Golfing was a later love; the only way to the hole was over the trees. Travelling was another love, there was never enough time in the day to see everything and off the beaten path was the best. Family was important, she was caring and considerate and always willing to lend a hand. This thoughtfulness extending beyond family and her influence will continue. When diagnosed with brain cancer in January 2011, her first thoughts were of others, what can I do for them. This journey over the last two years was of living and loving, full of smiles and laughter. “Jeepers” – What else is there to be said? She will be dearly missed by her partner Ann McEwan, mother Helen Rodgers, brothers Evan (Carolyn), Graydon, nieces Alexandra and Brooke and nephew Brad, Ann’s mother, Fiona McEwan and brother Hamish (Patty) and nephew Emmett. Dear friends Gary Eastman, Mary McArthur, Leila & Claire, Rena Bilton, Sandra Whittall and many more. Thank you to the staff on the 2nd floor of Smiths Falls and Perth District Hospital and Dr. R Drake and staff of the Rosamund Wing of the Almonte General Hospital for the kind and considerate care over the last seven weeks. Friends may call at the Carleton Place Chapel of Tubman Funeral Homes, 61 Lake Ave, West Carleton Place on Saturday, May 4, 2013 from 1 p.m. until time of memorial service in the chapel at 3 p.m. followed by a reception.

IN MEMORIAM

DIXON, Duane â&#x20AC;&#x201C; In loving memory of a dear father, father-in-law and grandfather who passed away on May 7, 1995. Memories can bring happiness When together we recall Special moments shared as family So treasured by us all. Memories can bring sadness With pain and sorrow too, As we long for things to be the same As when they were shared with you. But the joys we shared together, Are the memories we hold dear, And the love and happiness you gave us, Keep you forever near. Sadly missed and forever loved, Dawn, Brian and Michaela and Dale, Sue and Helena

Perth climate change meeting urges for call to action EMC News – An attentive crowd of over one hundred including half of Perth’s Town Council filled the Perth Legion Hall on April 15 to hear from local politicians and environmental authorities about climate change in our area, specifically on what can and needs to be done. The event was organized by the Perth Canadian Federation of University Women in collaboration with the Friends of the Tay Watershed Association and moderated by Lynn Preston from the Centre for Sustainable Watersheds. Environmental consultant Jackie Oblak emphasized that climate change is an indisputable reality, and that actions that are both remedial (to avoid adding more climate change contributors) and adaptive (to manage what is already happening), will decrease our vulnerability and increase resilience, so both are absolutely essential. She also stressed that widespread collaborative efforts by all government agencies and conservation authorities, industries, business and local organizations and individuals are needed. Citing the Lake Simcoe climate change plan as a possible model for this area, Oblak explained that “what is unique about this plan is the level of protection that has been mandated by the Lake Simcoe Protection Act passed in 2008 by the Ontario government. It identifies short and long-term priorities, includes targets, (setting for example a goal of 90 per

cent stormwater retention for that area), indicators and policies with the objective of promoting natural systems resilience in the entire Lake Simcoe ecosystem.” She added, “Locally, we need to focus on protecting natural corridors and linkages as the climate changes, supporting biodiversity and healthy ecosystems, practicing water conservation, protecting water quality and making wise land use choices. Such sustainable options can be considered ‘no regret’ actions as beginning steps in adaptation and will be good investments for our future.” Bruce Reid from the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority confirmed that data collected locally since the 1940s shows evidence of climate change with gradually increasing amounts of precipitation, average temperature increases of 0.1 degree Celsius per decade, increasing amounts of run-off with earlier spring thaws, and decreasing maximum daily flows in our rivers. These realities have necessitated increased focus on better flood control, protection of our conservation areas, reforestation and “never enough” monitoring. Mississippi Valley Conservation’s Paul Lehman outlined similar challenges, emphasizing that “the science is clear, and local leadership and action are critically needed because climate change is an economic, social and environmental issue.” He said that while we can expect up to 10 per cent more pre-

cipitation over the next century, due to increased heat and then evapotransportation, there will likely be 25 per cent less water available to replenish lakes, streams and aquifers. And despite a lack of political direction and support from our federal government, both conservation authorities are working together to identify potential vulnerabilities to begin to address the challenges brought to us by climate change locally. Lanark County warden Bill Dobson is an organic beef farmer who respects the importance of whole ecosystems protection. He mentioned concerns about climate-change-related damage to local maple syrup production and to local farming from increased flooding and droughts. “With this past summer’s drought, farmers from out west donated many bales of hay but the actual transportation costs worked out to $350 per round bale,” he said. He also mentioned that with increased freeze-thaw events as already experienced, there will be more damage to asphalt roads and concrete bridges. Lanark County has an energy conservation committee committed to sharing ideas and best practices, is doing energy audits and decreasing energy usage for a smaller energy footprint. Perth mayor John Fenik listed some of the ways the town has started to make changes including waste recycling, tree planting and filtering of the alum effluent

from the drinking water plant as it enters the Tay River. He also decried the lack of leadership from the federal government on coping with climate change. Comments from the audience included concern about the lack of storm-water treatment in Perth, the high number of local lakes and rivers that are choked with vegetation – “is it edible?” – the and the need for better monitoring of ground water levels and wells. Transition Perth’s Bonita Ford asked: “So how many of us now have a clear idea of what needs to be done about climate change?” Many attendees raised their hands and over 50 followed up by leaving their contact information so as to be kept in the loop about future initiatives on climate change and/or to help with the formation of a local climate change action network for an official plan of our own. Peggy Land, CFUW Environment Committee chair closed the event by noting that “it will take the efforts of all of us and more to come up with an official climate action plan anything like the Lake Simcoe watershed, an 82-page document. She added, “Right now, all we have in our 2012 Lanark Sustainable Community Official Plan under climate change is one line that says ‘opportunity for collaboration with local partners.’ This plan is only reviewed every five years.” Submitted by the Perth Canadian Federation of University Women.

Tree champion brings sugary touch to new tree in Almonte park

Canadian Gazette. He is also a member of the Eastern Ontario Model Forest Association. Ayling told the Canadian Gazette that Carleton is passionate about everything and is very deserving of the honour. “He supports the Chamber of Commerce tree sale, he’s forever around the community, he shows a lot of enthusiasm and he is a true teacher; he continues to teach everyone,” said Ayling. “He has a passion for nature too; everything, the birds, the bugs the bees and the trees!” Carleton enjoys sharing his passion for trees with others and in 2010 started to write a column on trees called ‘Shady Characters,’ first published in print in the Canadian Gazette and now featured online in the Millstone News. “I look for and hang out with shady characters,” Carleton said with a laugh. “The monthly column is on trees in the area that are big, old trees with a local history.” Carleton’s choice to plant a sugar maple tree was a logical one for him. “The maple is symbolic of our area. It’s our national emblem, it just seemed natural,” said Carleton. “We planted five maple trees in our yard 30 years ago!” Carleton promises he will never be far from the tree to watch it grow. “We will come back down and look after it and see what birds are around it and the plants around it, too,” said Carleton. “A tree is a symbol of renewal; a tree is a thing of beauty in all seasons.”

EMC News – The Metcalfe Geoheritage Park was filled with the smells and sights of maple sugar on Friday, April 26 as a new sugar maple tree found a new home. Neil Carleton, the 2013 Mississippi Mills Tree Champion, greeted everyone who was in attendance for the ceremony to honour him with baskets full of maple sugar cookies. Carleton said hello to guests as he showed them his first ever lino-block of maple trees titled ‘Waiting for Spring Leaves’ that was wet only a few hours before. Carleton even dressed the part with his maple leaf tie, which almost got in the way as he eagerly dug the hole for the tree prior to the event. To say this year’s tree champion was excited is an understatement; one could tell he was beaming with pride to be honoured by his peers. Carleton was thankful for the recognition and humbled by the entire situation. “It’s very much an honour to be awarded with the 2013 tree champion award for Mississippi Mills,” said Carleton. “To be recognized by the committee members is a true honour. I have big footsteps to follow in.” This is the third year for the award. In 2011, Al Potvin was honoured. His tree is behind the Almonte Old Town Hall, Last year Bill Tuffin was recognized and his tree can be found in the Fish and Game Club Park in Blakeney. The Mississippi Mills Tree Champion award recognizes outstanding individuals, nonprofit groups and businesses

Open houses on Mississippi Mills council size to be discussed again May 7 tlepack@perfprint.ca

EMC News – Public open houses on council size are back on the table. A notice of motion was received from Coun. Shaun McLaughlin at the Town of Mississippi Mills Committee of the Whole meeting on April 16. The motion that McLaughlin read called on the town’s chief administrative officer, Diane Smithson, to organize two open houses between June 3 and 14, one each at the Stewart and Almonte Community Centres. McLaughlin told the Canadian Gazette that he gave the notice of motion to restart the public process. “It’s a procedural thing. Committee of the Whole voted against three meetings but it can’t overrule council as council agreed to have meetings,” said McLaughlin. “The council re-composition debate

should go to the public and they should give us as much input as possible.” The open houses will discuss the composition of council, with notice to encourage participation and include a questionnaire in order to gather further feedback. As the matter was a notice of motion to be discussed at the next Committee of the Whole meeting on May 7, only questions were permitted April 16. Coun. Gary Dalgity, who was acting chair, warned council that they could ask questions on the motion but could not get into a discussion on it. Coun. Val Wilkinson was the first to ask a question. “Is the intent of your motion to come forward for the seven options, with two public meetings?” asked Wilkinson. “The seven options are already agreed to by council,” McLaughlin responded. Council decided on March 5 to review the com-

position of council limited to seven models that include a deputy mayor elected at large, as well as keeping the structure status quo. Dalgity quickly intervened, saying council was getting into a discussion on the topic. The next item on the agenda was to receive the minutes from the April 2 Committee of the Whole meeting, when Coun. Bernard Cameron took issue with the minutes as they had been presented and how it would affect the notice of motion. “In order to bring that forward there must be a motion of reconsideration,” said Cameron to acting town clerk Robert Tremblay. Tremblay explained that council had only considered that information. “The action clause was to do three open houses; you have already said you wanted to do focused consultation,” he said. “We are trying to get some clear direction on how you wanted to go about it. The clear direction in the report was five (open houses) and you amended that to three and that did not pass. The action of that

recommendation, it was simply to provide some clarification on the open houses. The (motion for) three, having failed, you can now come forward and decide on how to do it…we are just trying to get some direction on how that is going to happen.” Cameron did not want to challenge the integrity of the acting clerk but did note he’d like “to have a legal opinion on this before we proceed.” Tremblay tried to explain that it was the equivalent of considering or receiving a report. “If you would like us to expense a legal cost to have an opinion if (this matter) constitutes reconsiderations, we would be happy to do that,” said Tremblay. Coun. Alex Gillis believed this issue required a vote from council. “I totally disagree with that. I don’t see one councillor asking for a legal opinion,” he said. However, since no one seconded Cameron’s motion, it automatically failed.

EMC News – Area municipalities, including Carleton Place, Mississippi Mills and Beckwith have accepted the statements of remuneration prepared by their treasurers for 2012. It is a requirement of the Municipal Act that council remuneration be made public each year. Throughout the year, local politicians sit on and chair a handful of committees and community councils. One of the big-ticket items on their expenses is attending conferences: the Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO), Ontario East Municipal Conference (OEMC) and the Rural Ontario Municipal Association/Ontario Good Roads Association (ROMA/OGRA). This can include travel, registration, hotel, meal and parking costs. Conferences offer education on a number of key municipal issues and present networking opportunities. On the other hand, some councillors have other responsibilities and jobs that limit their ability to travel to conventions. In Carleton Place, mayor Wendy LeBlanc was paid $39,610.25 last year: $35,911.20 (council honorarium), $1,200 (per diem and $2,499.05 (other expenses). Ed Sonnenburg, deputy mayor, brought home $26,130.83: $22,300.63 (council honorarium), $600 (per diem) and $3,230.20 (other expenses). Coun. Louis Antonakos was paid $20,329.10: $17,955.60 (council hono-

rarium), $712.50 (per diem) and $1,661 (other expenses). Coun. Doug Black earned $30,241.71: $17,955.60 (council honorarium), $2,437.50 (per diem) and $9,848.61 (other expenses). Coun. Jerry Flynn brought in $22,728.80 in 2012: $17,955.60 (council honorarium), $1,350 (per diem) and $3,423.20 (other expenses). Coun. Rob Probert was paid $24,588.12: $17,955.60 (council honorarium), $1,950 (per diem) and $4,682.52 (other expenses). Coun. Gary Strike earned $23,383.52 last year: $17,955.60 (council honorarium), $975 (per diem) and $4,452.92 (other expenses). Both the mayor and deputy mayor also receive remuneration for their seats on Lanark County council. Furthermore, Jamie DeBaie ($2,397.99), Wayne Drummond ($2,740.89) and Chris Gray ($1,228.50) were compensated for their service on the police services board. The statement of remuneration and expenses paid to council and local board members was approved at the April 23 regular meeting of council.

said McOrmond. When the owner of Heroes Lounge approached the BIA in 2010, the organization was intrigued and got on board. However, when Heroes Lounge closed, no event took place in 2011. Aisha Toor, BIA director and owner of Readâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Book Shop, got involved last year. Free Comic Book Day is a national event that takes place annually the first Saturday in May. Carleton Placeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Free Comic Book Day runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a great way to bring people downtown to see what we have to offer,â&#x20AC;? said McOrmond. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully, they return and shop locally.â&#x20AC;? She called the downtown the centre of the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If people spent $50 every month in a small business, it would certainly make a difference,â&#x20AC;? said McOrmond. Readâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Book Shop is located at 130 Lansdowne Ave. and Treasures â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; More is situated at 109 Bridge St. For additional information, contact McOrmond by dialing 613-257-8049 or emailing cmcormond@carletonplace.ca.

The course covers a number of different topics such as depressions/bipolar disorders, alcohol/ drug use, suicide in Canada, anxiety/eating disorders and more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The course is really well laid out,â&#x20AC;? said Veltkamp. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It covers all issues relating to youth. We want to focus that it develops in youth. If we can help youth figure out what they are dealing with, we can help them continue on.â&#x20AC;? Both Lotan and Veltkamp agree mental health issues are being discussed more in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s society. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are more willing and open to talk about it. More people are more open and willing to help others and seek the help,â&#x20AC;? said Lotan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot more celebrities are coming forward,â&#x20AC;? added Veltkamp. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It brings it to the forefront that anyone can be affected.â&#x20AC;?

Once again, everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favourite superheroes will be in the BIA district meeting and greeting fans.

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Mental Health first aid training is just another tool in someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tool box, according to Barb Lotan, child and youth worker at Almonte District High School (ADHS). On April 24 and 25, a Mental Health First Aid course certified by the Mental Health Commission of Canada was taught by the Power of 3. Lotan took the course last year and after discussions with Tammy Welk from the Leeds, Grenville & Lanark District Health Unit, they decided to host the twoday session for front line staff, health service providers, emergency workers, teachers, child and youth workers, community groups and senior students from ADHS and Carleton Place High School. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I took the course and thought it was a wonderful way to introduce people to some scary topics in a really accessible way,â&#x20AC;? said Lotan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more tools in our tool box. We hope we never have to use it but now we have more tools if we ever need to intervene.â&#x20AC;? Amy Boulerice, a residential counselor at the Mills Community Support, thought it was an interesting course. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It brings you back to the basics and it takes away some of the stigma (of mental health issues),â&#x20AC;? she said. Grade 12 student Aston Mac-

Donald took the course because she wants to be a paramedic and has friends who suffer with mental health issues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good course, really educational,â&#x20AC;? said MacDonald. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Adolescence is when it (mental illness) is peaking and it should be talked about more. People should be educated about mental health issues so people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t turn a blind eye to it.â&#x20AC;? This was the first time the course was offered at Almonte. Last year it was held in Carleton Place and Lotan believes it is something from which everyone can benefit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s helpful for our staff to have the training and the students going out in the world,â&#x20AC;? she said. Lori Veltkamp is a certified instructor for the course from Power of 3 in the Brockville area and believes that mental health issues are very common. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to start looking at mental health issues as physical conditions,â&#x20AC;? she stated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give as much attention to mental health as those physical conditions because there is a fear in a lot of people that think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a weakness and then they are afraid to get help. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get help, it gets worse.â&#x20AC;? Veltkamp says the goal is to get away from the stigma and for people to realize mental health issues are real and people require help.

EMC News – Mississippi Veterinary Services in Pakenham became an attraction for passers-by on County Road 29. On April 23, a cow (female moose) stood tamely in a field next to the clinic. People pulled over and drove into the clinic’s parking lot to capture a photo of the wild moose. “It’s been around for a couple of weeks now,” said veterinary staff. The animal has been travelling between the Cedar Hill area and the clinic lot. According to locals, this is not the first appearance the moose has made (it is likely the one seen in the area last year), but it always causes amazement due to its sheer size. Motorists are advised to be vigilant as there is always a possibility that the moose could cause a traffic accident, by either crossing the road at an inopportune time or by distracting drivers. Sydney Ross is currently completing Photo by THERESA FRITZ a placement with the Arnprior This moose seemed unaffected by all the attention as motorists stopped along County Chronicle-Guide EMC.

Highlighting the need for hospice care in the area EMC Editorial – Let’s face it, we’re going to meet our end, but wouldn’t it be nice to receive valuable end-of-life care and support to help ease that transition? That’s precisely why hospice organizations are so important and the reason they should be celebrated. Across Canada, this Sunday, May 5 kicks off National Hospice Palliative Care Week (May 5 to 11), coordinated by the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association. It coincides with the week’s first event, Hike for Hospice. The fundraiser brought in more than $1.6 million across the country last year. Hike for Hospice doesn’t just raise funds for hospice palliative care, but also promotes the challenges hospice organizations face. This year’s National Hospice Palliative Care Week carries the theme “Canadians are aging. We’ve done the math. Have you?” which highlights the aging population across the country. The statistics are staggering. In 2009, approxi-

mately 1.3 million people in the country were aged 80 or over. That number is expected to continually rise to 1.6 million in 2016, 1.9 million in 2023, 2.5 million in 2029 and by the year 2036, that figure is expected to climb to 3.3 million. Locally, The Hub Hospice will be participating in the Hike for Hospice for this first year on Sunday at the picturesque Mill of Kintail. Well-known local charity The Hub is organizing the event in the hopes of raising funds to establish a Hub Hospice in the Mississippi Mills community, something that is desperately needed. One hundred per cent of the proceeds will stay right here in the region to help make the Hub Hospice a reality. The vision is to bring hospice home care to individuals who need it within the Mississippi Mills, Carleton Place, Beckwith and Lanark Highlands areas by this fall. Presently, the organization is looking to hire a nurse coordinator who

would oversee training the volunteers who will provide these special services and matching them with those who need their assistance. Many think about the care we receive as we enter the world and throughout our lives, but care at the end is something that’s just as important. There is plenty of support for hospitals, which take care of us day-to-day, but what about when we are no longer getting better and the hospital can no longer provide services? Hospice is there. It gives individuals the opportunity to return to the comfort of their own home and live out the rest of their days as they wish. Volunteers can’t provide medical assistance, but they do something that could be just as valuable at the stage; they offer companionship, an ear to listen. They can help them with

meals, play a game of cards or just sit and watch television. They are there to provide that much-needed support when the end is near. But hospices don’t just provide care for those facing the end of their life, they can also give valuable advice and support to families coping with the impending or recent loss of a loved one, through adult bereavement programs. Some hospice organizations, such as the nearby Beth Donovan Hospice in Kemptville, also offers services to children who are experiencing grief. To do your part, consider tying up those running shoes and joining those who are celebrating the life of loved ones who have benefitted from hospice care and support the Hub Hospice as they embark on an exciting new journey.

Pen to paper brings friends near EMC Editorial – The pen is mightier than the sword. Pen pals are people of all ages, nationalities and cultures who repeatedly write to each other, predominantly via postal mail. It can be fun to have a pen pal from a foreign country. I had one from New Zealand; however, the relationship didn’t survive past Grade 7. The same can’t be said for Carleton Place resident Verna MacFarlane, 75. For sixty years she and her pen friend, 72-year-old Anne Oakley, have stayed in touch. “My high school teacher had a bunch of addresses on the blackboard and told us to pick one,” she said. The date of MacFarlane’s first letter to Oakley: April 29, 1953. The duo were drawn to each other and the pen pals could talk about anything and everything. “We had so much in common,” said MacFarlane. “We were both brought up by our grandmothers. I enjoyed her letters. We just clicked.” When the girls first started writing, Oakley was sick and in the hospital. “I always had a soft spot for sick people,” said MacFarlane. At first they wrote once a month. Today, it is approximately every 10 days. As a bonus, MacFarlane’s husband Erwin and Oakley’s, Alan, became good friends.

Some pen pals eventually arrange to meet face to face. MacFarlane Tara Firma and Oakley’s first meeting came in 1967. “Anne and Alan came to Dorval and we met them,” said MacFarlane. “We attended Expo in Montreal and we showed them all over. It was a lot of fun. Anne was everything I expected.” Pen pals are still going strong even in the age of the Internet and social media. Clubs can be found online (ironically), in magazines, newspapers, and every now and then by way of clubs or special interest groups. Having pen pals is an experience which every child should benefit from. Highlights: life-long friends; a knowledge of other cultures and opinions; opportunities to visit other countries and cities; enhanced writing and communication skills; something in your mailbox other than bills or junk mail; and forget about eHarmony, LifeMates or POF (Plenty of Fish), some writing relationships lead to serious relationships, or even marriage. “Getting a pen pal was one of the most interesting things I have done in my life,” said MacFarlane. “The bond I have formed with Anne continues to grow and grow and get stronger.” If you have any comments or questions for Tara Gesner, she can be reached by email at tgesner@perfprint.ca.

Jim McIsaac retiring after 39 years with area ambulance services When Jim McIsaac began working as an ambulance attendant in 1974, he was part of a private ambulance service with four full-time staff serving the Carleton Place and Beckwith area. In May, after 39 years in emergency health services, Mr. McIsaac will retire as Chief of the Lanark County Ambulance Service (LCAS), which has 42 full-time staff, about the same number of part-time employees, and 12 vehicles serving all of Lanark County. At the beginning of Mr. McIsaac’s career, ambulance attendants provided only basic care and transport to medical facilities. “The biggest step, which took place in the 1980s, was permitting paramedics to perform cardiac defibrillation,” recalls Mr. McIsaac. “Defibrillation saves lives.” In the 1970s, the Carleton Place ambulance service was operated by local funeral director Alan R. Barker. Mr. McIsaac received his initial training at Canadian Forces Base Borden, and subsequent training at Algonquin College. In 1978-79 Mr. McIsaac became a supervisor for Mr. Barker’s which had expanded to also cover the Richmond area. In 1991, Mr.

McIsaac bought the ambulance service from Mr. Barker. Major changes to area ambulance services took place in 1997, when the provincial government decided to download responsibility for land ambulance services to municipalities. In 1999, Almonte General Hospital (AGH) submitted a proposal to Lanark County Council to operate the County’s ambulance services. The proposal, which consolidated four existing licences into one, created the LCAS, which was launched September 1, 2000, with Mr. McIsaac hired as Chief. “Jim McIsaac has had a long and distinguished career in emergency medical services,” says AGH President and CEO Mary Wilson Trider. “We are grateful for his

dedication and service, and we wish him a happy and healthy retirement.” Mr. McIsaac’s retirement takes effect May 24, 2013. The new Chief will be Ed McPherson, who is currently LCAS Deputy Chief/Manager of Quality Assurance and Training. “I will miss the people, not just the LCAS staff but the friends I’ve met across the province and throughout Eastern Ontario,” Mr. McIsaac says. As for retirement plans, Mr. McIsaac and his wife are motorhome enthusiasts who will now likely spend their winters in Florida. The couple has two adult sons. “Fortunately I have lots of interest,” says Mr. McIsaac. “My wife also runs a seasonal campground in Ladysmith, Quebec, so I guess I’m her new handyman there.” Asked what else he might miss about his job, besides the people, Mr. McIsaac says he is grateful to have had a long and enjoyable career in Carleton Place and Lanark County. But I’m going to miss the lights and sirens,” he jokes. “That’s what all paramedics say.”

The Herb Garden has been a local fixture for nearly 20 years. Located at 3840 Old Almonte Road, it has wide variety of attractions for visitors and officially opens on May 4. The nursery and gardens have a number of different culinary herbs for garden planting and different seminars to help you learn more about planting them. Then there is the labyrinth, workshops, a wedding reception venue and more. Co-owners George and Gerry Bedard are proud of the work they have accomplished over the last 10 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have managed to not only maintain it but grow it as well,â&#x20AC;? said George. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely a milestone that we lasted longer than the previous owners.â&#x20AC;? The couple took over when George was 60 and think it is indicative of the times that people are not willing or yet ready to retire.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice we can do it and we will keep doing it as long as we are healthy,â&#x20AC;? George noted. He believes there is an opportunity to continue to develop their skills and keep them young. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are able to provide services that are pretty rare to most cities,â&#x20AC;? said George. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Herb Garden spoke to us on our very first visit and we fell in love with the property and the business.â&#x20AC;? New season As the couple is celebrating their tenth anniversary, they have a number of new initiatives and changes this season. The â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Comfrey Cottage Artisan Boutiqueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; has been created in the former gift shop where people will find a variety of works produced by talented local artists. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to support local artisans through the cottage and we will be able to support more this way,â&#x20AC;? said George. The Mixing Bowl from Stittsville is the new on site caterer and will be presenting the annual Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day Brunch on May 12, as well as three other summer dinners. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have created new menus and will be serving the meals in a family-style manner with bowls of food being deliv-

ered to the tables,â&#x20AC;? said George. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will eliminate line ups and will create and foster conversations at the tables.â&#x20AC;? The Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day Brunch has two sittings, one at 10 a.m. and the second at 12:30 p.m. and reservation can be made by calling 613-256-0228. George thinks The Herb Garden is the perfect location to celebrate mom. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The reason they come is people realize mothers were, and still are, involved in gardening,â&#x20AC;? said George. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Here is a family environment; kids go to the playground and run around and the food has always been exceptional. (With) the service and ambiance here, people feel like they are at our house and not a restaurant.â&#x20AC;? Also new this year will be a course in beginner rug hooking in June and in July, Bear and Company Shakespeare Troupe will be performing â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Comedy of Errors.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Weddings The site is described as one of the Ottawa areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most enchanting and unique locations for an outdoor wedding and they are always running at full capacity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important for brides

New development charge rate in Mississippi Mills takes effect June 30 By TIFFANY LEPACK and CAITIE McRAE tlepack@perfprint.ca

R0012073457_0502

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The following are briefs from the special council meeting of the Town of Mississippi Mills, held April 23. The town has increased its development charges but the new schedule will now go into affect June 30 instead of April 24, as originally planned. Councillors received a letter from Neilcorp Homes on April 19, stating they, nor the three other builders in town, had not received a letter on the increase and that it would affect 33 homes that have already been sold. If it were to come into affect on April 24, Neilcorp would have been hit with an additional cost of $45,975. Coun. Paul Watters contacted all builders and Neilcorp was the only company from which he received a reply. â&#x20AC;&#x153;June 30 is what the builder would like,â&#x20AC;? said Watters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This (April 24 date) would create a huge problem,â&#x20AC;? added Coun. Duncan Abbott. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a reasonable amount of time.â&#x20AC;? Mayor John Levi thought the June 30 date was a good compromise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a matter of fairness so people can get used to it,â&#x20AC;? noted Coun. Shaun McLaughlin. Currently, the development

charge for a single-detached residential unit is $8,198 and the proposed increase is $10,704. For commercial, the current charge is $1.67 per square foot and the proposed change is $2.74 per square foot.

Stewart Community Centre upgrades The upgrades at Stewart Community Centre in Pakenham will be completed by Guy Saumure and Sons Construction Ltd., of Smiths Falls. Council approved the proposal for $24,800, which is its cost associated with the project as it has received 50 per cent funding through the Community Infrastructure Improvement grant. The upgrades include an addition for a womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s change room, a new floor in the ice resurfacer room and renovations to the upper washroom. Coun. Rick Minnille thought more weight should have been given to local contractor R. Ayotte Project Management Services. Coun. Shaun McLaughlin, who sits on the Stewart Community Centre Building Committee, responded on the evaluation process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mr. Ayotte had this much text (holding up pinched fingers). He was the local favourite but he had to do A, B

Forty-two species witnessed during birding outing Strictly for the Birds LYNDA C. BENNETT

Lesser Yellowlegs were the only shorebirds. By Prince Edward Point, Tree, Barn, and Northern Rough-winged Swallows put on a flying demonstration. On the ground, numerous American Robins and Northern Flickers were everywhere. A Belted Kingfisher called, Red-breasted Mergansers swam close to shore, as did one American Widgeon. Last bird

tallied on the way home was a Common Raven, giving us 42 species in total. April 15, Georgina Doe photographed a Red-shouldered Hawk and an Eastern Bluebird on Drummond Road. In Beckwith Township, southeast of Carleton Place, Randy Marinelli reported three Winter Wrens, six Tree Swallows, a Flicker, and five Golden-crowned Kinglets. Three days later, two Fox Sparrows, a Chipping Sparrow, and a Wilsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Snipe came to visit. Two Whitethroated Sparrows were

seen April 17. That day, Susan Fisher had Bluebirds checking the nest boxes at her place. April 18, in Ramsay Ward, Neil Carleton reported spotting an eastern Meadowlark. Just east of Ramsay Ward, Ray Sample saw a Fox Sparrow under his feeder, plus he had a Pileated Woodpecker loudly tapping at 7:30 a.m. in spruce wood. More news to come next week. Please call Lynda Bennett at 613-2565013 or email bennett@ magma.ca with your bird reports.

ADHS Reach for the Top team is county champion By TIFFANY LEPACK tlepack@perfprint.ca

Photo by TIFFANY LEPACK

Almonte District High Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Reach for the Top team recently became Renfrew County champions and will now be representing the school at the provincial finals in Toronto May 11 and 12. Above with the championship trophy are: teacher/coach Melisa Kurwin, left, and team members Mack Chapman, Riley Sweeney, Fin Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien and Madeleine Poirier.

added Sweeney. To win, the group already knows what they have to improve on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to get faster,â&#x20AC;? said Sweeney. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are pretty good at the buzzers but we need to get faster,â&#x20AC;? added Poirier. Their teacher/coach, Melisa Kurwin, is proud of their accomplishment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are a great group and they definitely outshone the other teams. They won all of their games by at least 80 points and only lost one game in overtime,â&#x20AC;? said Kurwin. ADHS principal Ron Ferguson is also proud of the studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hard work and is confident the team will do well at provincials. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Reach for the Top competition is great for our students,â&#x20AC;? said Ferguson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our team this year is fantastic and has a good chance to do quite well at provincials.â&#x20AC;? Anyone who is interested in sponsoring the team is encouraged to contact Ferguson via email at ronald. ferguson@ucdsb.on.ca.

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The buzzer beater champs hail from Almonte. The Reach for the Top team from Almonte District High School (ADHS) are the Renfrew County champions and will now try to buzz away competition from across the province. In the Reach for the Top game, students buzz in to respond to trivia questions that are worth points, which increase as the game progresses. The games all took place in Pembroke and were televised on Cogeco. The five-person team: Mack Chapman, Riley Sweeney, Fin Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien and Madeleine Poirier and Dennis Prokopowich, will now travel to the provincial championships in Toronto May 11 and 12, where they will battle it out against 40 other teams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It gives us a chance to flex minds with general knowledge trivia,â&#x20AC;? said Chapman. But before they compete, they are

looking for community support to help raise $1,800 to cover the cost of the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trip to Toronto. The team is excited for the opportunity to go. They won the championship on April 18 when they beat the defending champs Fellows High School, by 100 points. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty awesome. The first year we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t win a game at all,â&#x20AC;? said Sweeney. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We worked hard and it paid off.â&#x20AC;? The team feels like they had a leg up on the competition because they were disciplined during the recent labour issues and through hard work and dedication continued to practice every day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We took the initiative to practice ourselves,â&#x20AC;? said Chapman. During first semester they were able to practice for one hour every day as they all had a spare class at the same time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of teams didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t practice a lot because of the labour issues,â&#x20AC;? said Poirier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We practiced really hard,â&#x20AC;?

Award-winning author visits Carleton Place High School EMC News – Award-winning American author Dinaw Mengestu visited Carleton Place High School (CPHS) on Friday, April 26, to talk about his writing career and read excerpts of his 2007 novel, ‘The Beautiful Things that Heaven Bears’. Jeff Maguire, chair of the Carleton Place Sister City Committee (CPSCC), said the United States Embassy in Ottawa brought Mengestu to the National Capital Region for some appearances. He also attended the Ottawa International Writers Festival. Owing to the town’s twinning with Franklin, Tennessee, the CPSCC has developed a strong working relationship with the embassy. “They were good enough to ask us if we could arrange for him (Mengestu) to speak in Carleton Place,” he said. Mayor Wendy LeBlanc spoke to CPHS principal Eric Hardie who immediately jumped on board. Mengestu spoke to English, travel tourism and family studies classes (Grade 11 and Grade 12). Diane Sovereign, cultural attaché for the United States Embassy in Ottawa, and Sandra Weedmark, cultural associate for the Unites States Embassy in Ottawa, joined him. The trio was taken on a tour of CPHS by co-presidents of the student council, Nelson Parker and Erin McLeod. Born in Ethiopia (Addis Ababa) in 1978, Mengestu’s family left the country when he was two years old because of political revolution. He was raised in Peoria, Illinois. In school he fell in love with literature and books. “In high school I took the idea of writing books very seriously,” said Mengestu. “I began to write short stories every day.” He later graduated from Georgetown University (Bachelor of Arts, English) and Columbia University’s MFA (Master of Fine Arts) program in fiction. With his writing, Mengestu tried to find a way to assemble his stories into a novel that reflected the world he saw each day.

‘The Beautiful Things that Heaven Bears’ tells the story of Sepha Stephanos. He fled the Ethiopian Revolution 17 years ago for a new start in the United States. Now Sepha finds himself running a failing grocery store in a poor African-American section of Washington, D.C. Lonely, things begin to look up when he forms a friendship with new neighbours Judith and Naomi, a white woman and her bi-racial daughter. But when a series of racial incidents disturbs the community, Sepha may lose everything all over again. When asked about his inspiration for Naomi, Mengestu said, “She is the idea of what a great little child would look like.” He has garnered critical praise around the world for his haunting depiction of the immigrant experience. His 2010 book is ‘How to Read the Air’. In addition to the two novels, he has written for Rolling Stone on the war in Dafur, as well as Jane magazine on the conflict of northern Uganda. His writing has also appeared in Harper’s, The Wall Street Journal, and numerous other publications.

Celebrate nurses in Almonte May 5 to 11 New sign to be unveiled at World By TIFFANY LEPACK tlepack@perfprint.ca

EMC News – Nurses are a valuable part of our health care system. At Almonte General Hospital (AGH) and Fairview Manor there are approximately 84 registered nurses (RN) and 56 registered practical nurses (RPN) who will be celebrating Nursing Week May 5 to 11. The Ontario Nurses Association, which represents 60,000 registered nurses and health professionals in Ontario has chosen the theme ‘Value the Invaluable.’ According to its website, the theme reflects the desire of all Ontario nurses to feel respected, valued and as a vital part of the multidisciplinary health care team. “Nurses are a very valuable part of the hospital and any health care setting, school nurses or other nurses,” said Paisley Twigge, an RN who has worked at AGH for 36 years. “It’s a unique profession because you can do so many jobs in nursing. You are a caregiver, an advocate a teacher and more.” Heather Schonauer, an RPN who has also been at the Almonte Hospital for 36 years, believes it is important to recognize the work nurses do in the community. “With nurses, we don’t take time to recognize the work we do,” said Schonauer. “We try to be a part of a family here. In Almonte, a rural setting, it’s quite different than a big city.” When Schonauer described her role at the hospital she emphasized that she is a part of a team and always has the

support required to do her job. “A nurse on staff does patient care and assessment, we work as a team and follow up on any symptoms with the doctor and make changes to help the patient,” she said. “I work with a very valuable group of nurses,” Twigge added. “Everybody cares about each other and we are a team. You don’t always have that team atmosphere in your career, it is unique in that way.” The Health Force Ontario website describes RNs and RPNs as nurses who all learn from the same body of nursing knowledge, however RNs study for a longer period of time, allowing for greater depth and breadth of foundational knowledge. Where an RPN studies for a shorter period of time, resulting in a more focused body of foundational knowledge, both are governed by the College of Nurses of Ontario. When Schonauer went to school in 1976, she took a full year program at St. Lawrence College in Kingston took her exam with the College of Nurses. She always had an interest in nursing as family members were also nurses and at that time there were few professions for women to choose from. “When I was 16-years-old I volunteered at Lanark Lodge for three years and I did a lot of learning there,” explained Schonauer. “I knew I wanted to do that. It was the caring and helping people aspect of things (that I liked).” After 36 years she says she has a feeling of satisfaction and still feels the calling inside. “It’s the urge to

continue to learn and we are always giving of ourselves. It’s about caring for others,” said Schonauer. Twigge attended Centennial College in Toronto where she earned a two-year diploma and became an RN after taking the exam with the College of Nurses. Now students who want to become an RN are required to take a four-year Bachelor of Nursing Science program. Twigge says she wanted to be a nurse ever since she was a little girl. “I couldn’t wait to finish school to become a nurse,” said Twigge. “I wanted to take care of people. You are an advocate for your patients and you want to make sure they receive the best possible care and that they understand their care.” Twigge is the team leader for medical/surgery and obstetrics at AGH and finds both areas very rewarding. “I like obstetrics and palliative care because you bring someone into life in a safe and loving environment and when they are leaving, you want them to go out the same way with dignity and respect,” she said. For this year’s Nursing Week, the nurses in Almonte have a number of activities planned such as a display on the ‘Power of White,’ Healing Hands therapies, and a celebration cake and chili taste challenge ($5 and open to the public on Thursday, May 9 at noon). Proceeds from all fundraising events will go toward the nursing student bursary award they give annually to a local high school student who chooses to study nursing.

Labyrinth Day Walk in CP Saturday

EMC Events – Walking the labyrinth on World Labyrinth Day is the perfect way to celebrate spring! Join us on Saturday, May 4 for our first public event of 2013 as we “Walk as One at 1” in celebration of World Labyrinth Day. If you are new to the labyrinth experience, this Saturday walk will be the perfect introduction for you. This year, volunteer “labyrinthkeepers” will unveil a new sign that will serve as a year-round guide for visitors to the labyrinth. World Labyrinth Day, declared in 1998 by The Labyrinth Society, brings people together globally to recognize the labyrinth as a symbol, a tool, a passion, and a practice. This will be the fifth World Labyrinth Day walk for the Carleton Place Community Labyrinth, as we join enthusiasts from around the globe who will walk their local labyrinth at 1 p.m. in their local time zones. By walking a labyrinth, we are rediscovering an ancient tradition which is still relevant today. Labyrinths offer a special place in a community for people to come together for significant celebrations, to resolve a problem, to enjoy a meditative walk, or to simply take time out of a busy day. The newly built stone-bordered pathway of the Carleton Place Community Labyrinth is situated in a peaceful garden setting beside the Carleton Place & Beck-

with Heritage Museum at the corner of George and Baines streets. Labyrinths exist in many forms, in places as diverse as Peru, Iceland, Egypt, France, and the United Kingdom. Some have been built on private lands, while others, like the Carleton Place Community Labyrinth, have been created as a public space for all to enjoy. Labyrinth construction was made possible by the Town of Carleton Place, individual, business and community sponsors, and a Trillium Foundation grant. Garden benches and a wheelchair accessible contemplation ring encircle the labyrinth for those who wish to enjoy the natural setting of Labyrinth Park. Members of the volunteer labyrinth committee invite you to experience the good feeling walking a labyrinth can make in your life. Fascinating information about the history, benefits and unique aspects of the labyrinth will also be available. For more information, contact Debby at 613-257-1014, check out our blog at http://carletonplacecommunitylabyrinth.blogspot.com or check us out on Facebook (www. facebook.com/CarletonPlaceCommunityLabyrinth).

EMC News – Caldwell Street Public School in Carleton Place celebrated the efforts of its volunteers on Friday, April 26, at a special breakfast. “We are so blessed at Caldwell to have so many wonderful volunteers serving our school,” said principal Carole Dufort. Approximately 50 people attended the catered meal of eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, French toast, fresh fruit and more. The spring theme was unmistakable with lovely tulip centerpieces adorning round tables set up in the library. “I can’t think of something more precious and noble than people giving time and expertise in order to help our kids, our school and our commu-

A kind word, a gesture or a bit of extra support can make all the difference.” Caldwell has a solid reputation and is on track to become a high performance school.

Business helps women adjust to changes brought about by breast cancer By TARA GESNER tgesner@perfprint.ca

EMC Business – The best thing that could ever happen to Crystal Harris is to go out of business. Why? It would mean there is no more cancer. “I can always find another job,” she said. Lorraine’s, Carleton Place’s new breast care studio and more, celebrated its official opening on April 26. The store, named in memory of Harris’ mother, Lorraine Kenney, offers mastectomy and lumpectomy-related products (post-operative wear, bras and breast-form fitting and more). “My mother passed away six years ago from lung cancer,” said Harris, store owner, “and she was the first member of our family with the C-word.” Kenney was well-known in Carleton Place. “My mother was a positive person – so full of life,” said Harris. “There was such a positive vibe around her.” “I am sure your mom is looking down right now with pride and pleasure,” said mayor Wendy LeBlanc during Friday’s affair. “Congratulations!” Harris was born and raised in Carleton Place, and she attended Trent University. Married to husband Gary, the couple has two sons: Blake, 14, and Trent, 12. Although a senior manager of human resources at Honeywell Aerospace in Ottawa, Harris bid goodbye to the corporate world to open Lorraine’s. “The job was hectic and I was having some health problems,” she said. “A family decision was made that I would try something different.” Two years ago one a close friend of the Harris family was diagnosed with

A positive self-image plays an important role in overall health and can aid in the healing process. “I want to make this a positive experience for clients,” said Harris. “In a comfortable and confidential setting, I am here to help them.” Private fitting rooms, warm slippers and coffee, tea or water are special touches. Calling ahead for an appointment can offer additional time to talk to clients and address their needs. “I really enjoy people, helping people,” said Harris. “I love getting to know someone and building new relationships.” Lorraine’s also offers a mobile service, in-home support. Harris only uses Trulife products, which are 100 per cent Canadian made. “This allows for a lower price point,” she said. “I don’t have offshore manufacturing and shipping feeds.” Moreover, there is no HST on medical products. The Assistive Devices Program, administered by the Operational Support Branch of the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, as well as personal benefit plans can help with costs. Bras and post-operative camisoles come in different colours, and there are several styles (lingerie, athletic and leisure) and fabrics to choose from. “In the future I would like to carry headwear, scarves, swimwear and wigs,” said Harris. “Everyone has been incredibly sup-

Frankville farm becomes first local producer of cold pressed sunflower oil By ASHLEY KULP akulp@perfprint.ca

EMC Lifestyle – When Dale Horeczy and Brad Daily purchased their Frankville property, Kricklewood Farm in 2009, they had no idea what was in store for them. Fast forward a few years later, the duo are now the only local producers of cold pressed sunflower oil in the area. In early April, the first batch of Kricklewood Farm’s cold pressed sunflower oil was bottled and is now available in a number of local specialty and health food stores, including Foodsmiths in Perth, Smiths Falls’ The Garden Market, The Granary in Carleton Place, as well as the Butcher Shop in Brockville. According to Horeczy, who has a background in marketing, he and Daily started on the road to sunflower oil production in 2010 on their 90-acre farm where they also raise 10 Nubian goats, ducks, chickens, and pot-bellied pigs, making goat’s milk soap and other products. “We were debating what to do with the land and Brad, my partner, grew up in Manitoba where they grow a lot of sunflowers, then we saw an article in the Ottawa Citizen about it,” he noted during a recent interview at his rented production space in Smiths Falls. “We saw a gentleman in Quebec was doing this (sunflower production) on a bigger scale and we thought if he can do it, then maybe we can do it.” Horeczy and Daily went to visit his operation to find out more and spent the next two years researching the idea, seed varieties, farming requirements and equipment needed to press and bottle the oil. “Last year, we were ready and put in our first 15 acres of sunflowers,” Horeczy said. “We worked with local neighbours who used their farming equipment who planted and weeded for us. Others did combining and stored the seed for us in their grain silos.”

Dale Horeczy, above, owner of Frankville’s Kricklewood Farm with partner Brad Daily, pours sunflower seed into a machine which presses the seed into oil. The farm recently became the first local producers of cold pressed sunflower oil in the area. Above right, the finished product. The sunflower oil is available in a variety of local health food and gourmet stores throughout the region.

Kricklewood Farm also held a benefit for the Lanark Animal Welfare Society last summer when the sunflowers were in full bloom. Guests were invited to tour the farm’s grounds and could take home a bouquet of the sunny blossoms for a $10 donation. “(When in full bloom), the fields look like you’re in the middle of a Van Gogh painting,” Horeczy commented. “Every morning I was out there taking a lot of pictures and chronicling the process.” The crop was harvested after the sunflowers had dried and gone to seed in November 2012. That’s when the real work began for Horeczy and Daily. Having extensively looked at the requirement equipment, they decided on a German made screw press, which Horeczy likens to a “giant meat grind-

er.” The seed is poured into a large hopper and the oil is then squeezed out into one reservoir, while the solid remnants of the seed make their way to another. Those dry pellets can be used as feed for livestock or as compost, so there’s no waste through the process. “The oil is pumped out then we let it settle for a week, filter it and bottle it,” Horeczy explained. “It’s a simple process, which is the same way traditional olive oil is made, this is just a little more modern.” Where the cold press comes into play is the fact that no heat (the press turns very slowly) or chemicals is used in the production of Kricklewood Farm’s sunflower oil. “That’s what makes it as tasty as it is and gives it the golden yellow colour,” Horeczy said. “Sunflower oil in a grocery store is usually clear because chemicals have been used to extract the oil. This way, the flavour comes through much stronger.” In larger operations, often presses are sped up in order to produce a higher yield. Horeczy indicated there are many health benefits to using sunflower oil, including its high levels of vitamin E. In fact, Horeczy said that mothers often use it to heal chafing from diaper rash. It is known for having a light, nutty flavour that is paired well with herbs to create vinaigrettes, or even as a substitute for butter on corn on the cob. Looking forward Horeczy has recently been producing and bottling more oil, as well as hitting the road to find stores interested in stocking the item. In addition to the stores listed above, shops throughout Lanark, Leeds and Grenville, including: Peches & Poivre in Almonte; Balderson Fine Foods in Balderson; Katz Deli and Catering in Brockville; The Cheddar Stop in Carleton Place; Forfar Dairy Limited in Forfar; Mrs. McGarrigles Fine Food Shop in MerSee SUNFLOWER page 43

Some helpful tips for smart shopping and healthy eating EMC Lifestyle –Healthy eating begins with what you put in your grocery basket. However, with so many choices available – how do you know what to buy or what is healthy? Read on to learn more about how to shop smart! At the grocery store – the outer aisles At the grocery store, stock up on foods with lots of nutrients without added sugar, sodium and fat. The outer aisles of the store tend to have the freshest, least processed foods. In the produce section, choose colourful vegetables and fruits; if you have these in your home, you are more likely to eat them. In the cooler section, look for lower-fat milk products, such as skim, one per cent or two per cent milk and low-fat yogurt. In the meat section, choose lean, unseasoned meats and poultry instead of deli slices. When buying seafood look for fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids, such as salmon and trout, as well as shellfish, such as shrimp and crab. When buying bread and cereal, choose products made with whole grains use the nutrition facts panel and choose products with more fibre.

When shopping in the inner aisles steer clear of packaged foods that are low in nutrients and high in salt and sugar such as salty snack foods, sugary drinks and baked goods. Stock up on nutrient-rich staples when on sale, including canned items such as: nosalt-added canned tomatoes, beans and lentils, canned vegetables (hint: rinse these to reduce salt intake), whole grain pasta and rice, high-fibre cereals, nuts and canned fish. Beware of packaged foods that are marketed or branded as being natural, organic or a healthy choice – this is a marketing trick to make you believe a product is healthier than it actually is.

Healthy convenience Eating at home doesn’t mean never using convenience foods. In fact, there are many healthy convenience food choices that can be time savers when it comes to getting healthy meals on the table. Next time you’re shopping, look for these nutritious options: • Pre-cut or frozen vegetables and fruit: Look for vegetables and fruit that have no added sugar, salt or fat (hint: avoid added seasonings and sauces). Along with peas and corn, try frozen leafy greens such as spinach, kale At the grocery store – the or mixed Asian vegetables. inner aisles Frozen peaches, mangos

He is quick to stress that Kricklewood Farm will remain a small farm-based operation. That’s something important to he and Daily. “We’re promoting it (sunflower oil) as a local production and I go in and meet the owners of stores myself,” Horeczy stated. “It’s low level and we want to keep it local with gourmet and health food stores. It’s probably as big as we want it right now.” The feedback he has been receiving on the oil has made all the work worth it. Emails received through the Kricklewood Farm website (www. kricklewoodfarm.com) have been positive as have the comments from the stores stocking the product. “They (stores) all appreciate it being local and the fact that we’re the only farm doing sunflower oil in the area makes it unique,” he noted. “It’s very gratifying to know stores are all very open to bringing the product in.”

For the near future, Horeczy and Daily are focusing on sunflower oil production, but Horeczy said there is the possibility of developing flavour oils, such as garlicinfused and other varieties, but “right now we’re getting our bases covered with this basic oil.” “Ideally, we’d also like to move the press to our farm and eventually have a little shop on site,” he added, pointing to fellow Frankville business, Gibbon’s Maple Farm, as how he would like to see Kricklewood Farm develop. “That’s what we’re working towards, making it a local food destination,” Horeczy concluded. Kricklewood Farm is also planning future workshops and fundraisers for local organizations to continue to share the farming experience. For more information on Kricklewood Farm, visit their website at www. kricklewoodfarm.com or look for their booth at the 1000 Islands Wine & Food Festival in Brockville this June and the Ottawa valley Midsummer Herbfest at Almonte’s Herb Garden on July 28.

We had 771 people bowl with us this year and we raised more than $81,000. This year, Lanark County had one of its biggest fears materialize; one of our three bowling alleys closed. We created a Nintendo Wii event to replace the Perth alley. Thankfully, our Wii tournament was a success! We exceeded our goal and learned a lot in the process. The agency is looking forward to next year and will continue to offer this format as an option going forward. What we learned more than anything is that we needed to practice what we preached. We teach our mentees to be resilient, to adapt to lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ups and downs. We teach them that there is never just one way to solve a problem. Through this model, we adapted, we reached out for help, we utilized our resources and we learned that our community is there for us.

National youth summit This year marks Big Brothers Big Sisters 100th year of mentoring in Canada. As part of the events to celebrate this exciting benchmark, our national office has organized a youth summit, which was held in Ottawa April 14 to 18. Two youth from our Lanark County agency, Jason Mayer and Rayna Critchley were in attendance. BBBS sees young people as agents of change in their communities. During the summit, delegates had the opportunity to speak and meet with political figures and other agents of change, to help empower them to come home and start something in their own communities. As part of the commitment to support our youth in their local endeavours, MasterCard provided each delegate with a $100 stipend. We are very proud of our young people and are looking forward to seeing what changes they have in store for us upon their return.

$350 per child. We are encouraging families to contact us as soon as possible as funding is limited and will be distributed on a first come first serve basis. Please contact Rhonda Low at 613283-0570 or email at rhonda.low@bigbrothersbigsisters.ca for more information about sending your child to camp.

Doctors of optometry also examine your eye health and structures to ensure there are no abnormalities, and measure the pressure inside your eyes – an important test for detecting glaucoma. Glaucoma involves damage to the optic nerve and if left untreated, can cause vision loss. Many serious eye diseases have no symptoms and can only be detected through a comprehensive eye exam. Even someone who has 20/20 vision may be at risk. In May, participating doctors of optometry will be donating $2 to CNIB for every eye exam conducted during the month.

EMC News – Every 12 minutes, someone in Canada begins to lose their sight, but many Canadians aren’t aware that 75 per cent of vision loss can be prevented or treated. “The first step is getting your eyes examined regularly,” says Dr. Keith Gordon, vice president of research at CNIB. “An eye exam is more than determining if you see well. It’s vital to your overall health.” During an eye exam, your doctor of optometry will conduct specialized tests to assess your eyesight and diagnose eye diseases. “Using the familiar eye chart or a hand-held reading card, we assess your ability to see small detail clearly at distance and near. Other tests help us determine how well your eyes are aligned or coordinate when working together, and how well you see peripheral targets that are not directly in front of

1957 Pontiac Laurentian 4-door hardtop (Maclean’s magazine, February 16, 1957). This is the car Herm wishes he had bought instead of the convertible. Note the absence of silver streaks on the hood, a Pontiac trademark since 1935. Side trim resembles a rocket taking off, now reminding us that Russia launched the world’s first artificial Earth satellite on October 4, 1957.

Herm’s 1957 Pontiac Laurentian convertible met nasty fate

came with a V8 engine of 347 cubic inches and horsepower up to 310 with the fuel-injected Bonneville. Rear tires wore out fast on those cars. Herm’s 1957 Pontiac Laurentian was the only convertible he ever owned. Essex County had many more gravel roads back then compared to now, and dust was always swirling around inside the car, even when the top was up. During my search for a picture of a ’57 Pontiac convertible to go with this story, I found the picture you see here of a ’57 Pontiac 4-door hardtop in a magazine ad. Herm asked me to publish this picture with his story because that’s the body style he wished he had bought instead of the convertible. We know for sure that Herm’s Pontiac is no longer around. He had been driving it for about two years when he

parked it in front of 80 Victoria St. South in Leamington, where he was living at the time. A drunk driver backing up too fast smashed into the front of his car. The left front wheel was bent 45 degrees, and the frame was probably also bent. The insurance gave Herm $400 for his car and he applied this toward the purchase of a black 1960 Meteor 4-door sedan, which he and his wife drove on a vacation to Kentucky and stayed at a motel with a swimming pool. I’m always looking for more stories. Email billtsherk@sympatico.ca or write Bill Sherk, 25 John St., P.O. Box 255, Leamington, ON N8H 3W2. Everyone whose story is published in this column will receive a free autographed copy of my latest book: “OLD CAR DETECTIVE FAVOURITE STORIES, 1925 to 1965.”

EMC Lifestyle - Herm Bauer was born in 1941 and grew up on a farm near Staples, Ontario. The family had two work horses named Barney and Maude. In 1961, Herm purchased a baby blue 1957 Pontiac Laurentian convertible with a black top from Sterling Gee’s car lot in nearby Kingsville. Canadian Pontiacs in 1957 came in three series: the budget-conscious Strato-Chief, the mid-range Laurentian (named after a mountainous region of Quebec), and the top-of-the-line Parisienne. Convertibles were available in both the Laurentian and Parisienne series. Herm’s Laurentian convertible came with a six-cylinder engine and three-speed manual transmission with the shift lever on the steering column (“three on the tree” we used to say). Canadian Pontiacs at that time were really Chevrolets with Pontiac grilles, taillights, and side trim. Herm’s six-cylinder engine had 235 cubic inches with 140 horsepower (138 more than he had on the farm). He was lucky he did not have an American Pontiac. They all

Sale of Classic Theatre Festival tickets to benefit Haiti orphanage EMC News – Dieudonne Batraville, founder of Centre Vie Orphanage in St. Marc’s, Haiti wanted to share with her friend Marcelle, firsthand, Canadian supporters’ vision for sustainability for the Centre Vie orphanage by means of donated goats (milk, cheese, soap, meat and goats for breeding or consumption). Hence a trip to the Wildrose Country Homestead in Clayton in January where Batraville is a regular hands-on visitor with a view toward setting up a Haitian herd of goats, (purchased in Haiti) to benefit Centre Vie’s 31 or-

phans and finally begin their journey toward sustainability. Meanwhile the goat fund to which supporters have been donating $100 per goat for a tax deductible receipt is growing steadily, and Batraville has been benefitting under the tutorage of Anita Dworschak at the Wildrose Country Homestead. Most recently, the Get Your Goat for Haiti advertisement in The Humm’s ‘Valentine’ edition caught the attention of the Classic Theatre Festival members who took the cause to heart! As a result, the Classic Theatre organizers responded to our ad and have

offered to donate 100 tickets for their Saturday, July 20, 8 p.m. performance of ‘The Starspangled Girl’ by Neil Simon (famous for ‘The Odd Couple’). The tickets are now in hand and the goat fund and 31 orphans (ages four to 13 years) will profit greatly by their sale. No doubt an evening in Perth, watching a classic play performed by professionals is sure to be a memorable treat for only $30. To benefit the children’s orphanage – this is a time-limited offer (we would like to sell them all by end of

May) – you can contact Linda Dryer at 613-257-7617, led613mail@gmail. com; or obtain them from Cornerstone Church directly via Kathy Priddle; at the Reformed Presbyterian church from Anita Dworschak (goats.n.soaps.

co@gmail.com); from Batraville herself when you see her around and about in Almonte; at the Almonte Presbyterian Church; or St. Mary’s. If you need a drive – remember to ask!

Ottawa Valley Seed Growers review 2013 farm show, approve donations Ottawa Nov. 20 to 23. Green explained that the local organizing committee is trying to raise $50,000 to cover costs of hosting the convention. A major fundraiser will be held at Rideau Carleton Raceway July 7. The OVSGA set aside $500 to renew its annual membership in the Canadian Agricultural Hall of Fame. The association also pays $1,000 a year for membership in the Ontario Agricultural Hall of Fame. 4-H Turning to regional 4-H, directors allocated $300 to each of the 11 counties of eastern Ontario, another $300 to counties that have field crop or plowing clubs, and $2,000 to help cover costs of the annual 4-H show in Metcalfe. In other business, directors approved expenses for a delegation of seven representatives including OVSGA president Bruce Hudson to attend the annual meeting of the Farm Show Council (FSC) slated for London,

ON, May 6 to 8. An FSC member, the OVFS is cohosting the gathering along with Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show based at Woodstock and the International Plowing Match & Rural Expo to be held at Mitchell this year. Directors approved $2,000 to support the FSC meeting. Formed in 1972, the FSC represents 23 agricultural trade shows in the United States and Canada, with one member in New Zealand. The objective is to improve the value of member shows to exhibitors and visitors through evaluation, communication and education. Overall, the 2013 OVFS was judged a success with some glitches still to be ironed out after a second year in the Ernst & Young Centre adjacent to Ottawa International Airport. Several directors commented on the appeal of the expanded 4-H and antique shows held at the front of the building, joined this year by a quilt display and demonstration that will return in 2014.

EMC News – Directors of the Ottawa Valley Seed Growers Association (OVSGA) approved several donations to agricultural organizations and the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario when they met in Kemptville recently. It was their first full meeting following the 2013 Ottawa Valley Farm Show (OVFS) held in March and most of the agenda was occupied with comments about the show and suggestions for the 2014 edition. (The seed growers organize and sponsor the annual farm show). In relation to CHEO, directors confirmed a $6,000 donation, proceeds from the annual Prestigious Pedigree Seed Sale held during the farm show. The amount brings the total raised for the hospital by the seed sale to more than $100,000 over the last 20 years. A request from Dale Green of the Richmond Fair to help sponsor the 2013 convention of the Canadian Association of Fairs and Exhibitions was met with a $1,000 seed growers contribution. The meeting will be held in

Pain and Gain depicts the real life events of the Sun Gym gang as they bungle their way from kidnapping, to murder, to their eventual incarceration. I did a little research, and while the film leaves out some details this is definitely a case of the truth being stranger than fiction. If the actual events are a train wreck then I guess it makes sense that the movie based on those events would be a train wreck too. I was dumbfounded by the whole thing. The sheer absurdity of what these guys did is mindboggling. As a film I found it even more disturbing. I get that an absurd situation can be a source of humour, but there’s nothing funny about what happened to the victims in this sto-

ry. And the constant attempts to make it funny were just wrong. I said it before and I’ll say it again Michael Bay couldn’t tell a decent story if his life depended on it. If this had been a work of fiction it might have worked, but it isn’t. Bay constantly reminds us throughout the film that these events happened. He also goes out of his way to annoy the audience by giving every single character their own film noir voice over. Never has a film convention been more overused. I can see why the cast decided to take on these roles. These are the kinds of characters that can challenge an actor. Truth be told Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie are really good. Tony Shalhoub is fantastic and Ed Harris, who plays the private investigator who catches the gang, easily gives my favorite performance. The problem is it doesn’t matter how good the actors are because their performances are never going to keep this wreck from going off the rails. Pain and Gain might be a story that needed to be told, but this wasn’t the way to do it. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

Who are volunteer hospice visitors and what do they do?

EMC News - The Volunteer Hospice Visitors of Community Home Support – Lanark County provide in-home and hospital support to people who are living with a lifelimiting 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 person who is ill along with their loved ones. Volunteer Hospice Visitors honour life and want to make sure that support is available to everyone when they need it. They feel no one should have to die alone. They are not afraid to help out in the direst of situations, often being the recipient of the last call for help where no other help is available. Hospice volunteers have training about simple comfort measures that may help people with distressing symptoms such as breathing problems; vomiting; fever or chills; diarrhea;

constipation; headaches; sleep problems; and skin and mouth care. They are also trained to recognize the signs of pain and know that pain is whatever the person says it is. They are great advocates for pain and symptom management. A Hospice Volunteer works to maintain and/or improve the quality of a person’s life throughout his or her illness by listening and offering acceptance; dignity; encouragement; and comfort. Hospice Volunteers compassionately and quietly fill many roles and gaps in community services with no financial remuneration and also little acknowledgement for the invaluable service they are providing. They are dedicated and self-motivated, truly wonderful people to know. If this description of a Volunteer Hospice Visitor appeals to you, you may be interested in joining our team. A very precious personal benefit may be gained by easing the burden of others while passing on one’s own experience and wisdom. A work record is kept for each

volunteer so that the position can provide job references. All new volunteers must successfully complete the screening process that includes an interview, two personal reference checks and a police records check. Completion of a free 36-hour Palliative Care Level 1 Certificate or equivalent education and experience is also required. Ongoing information and education sessions are offered to volunteers by Community Home Support where there are many opportunities to meet other members of a very active and compassionate Volunteer Hospice Visiting Team that is growing throughout Lanark County! For further information about becoming a volunteer, please contact Rebecca Bowie at 613-267-6400, extension 28 or rebeccab@ chslc.ca. Community Home Support-Lanark County is supported by the South East LHIN, the United Way of Lanark County and charitable donations.

MOVIE: Pain and Gain STARRING: Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson, Anthony Mackie, Tony Shalhoub, and Ed Harris DIRECTOR: Michael Bay RATING: 18A EMC Entertainment - You should never judge a movie by its trailer, but of course you inevitably do. After the trailer for Pain and Gain I thought it looked like a train wreck, and after seeing the film I can confirm it’s a colossal train wreck. Daniel Lugo is sick of working every day as a personal trainer for no money and less respect. He wants his piece of the American dream, and he’s got a plan to get it. Daniel, with the help of his good friends Adrian (Anthony Mackie) and Paul (Dwayne Johnson), are going to kidnap Victor Kershaw (Tony Shalhoub), and make him sign over everything he owns. In Daniel’s mind Victor is a scum bag who deserves what he gets. In reality Daniel, Adrian and Paul are steroid abusing morons with a serious disconnect with reality. Victor isn’t a criminal, but that doesn’t stop Daniel from torturing him and taking his fortune. These guys may be morons, but they’re dangerous morons.

Elementary School Volunteers Dairy Farmers of Ontario would like to thank all of the volunteers that help run the Elementary School Milk Program. Milk Coordinators and their helpers have been volunteering their time in over 2800 Ontario elementary schools for the past 26 years. Cold, nutritious milk is made available to over 1,000,000 students daily, with their dedicated help.

The good news for seniors -- you receive a variety of tax assisted benefits and tax credits from the federal government that are not available to others. The not-so-good-news is that these benefits are incometested and that can result in clawbacks from Old Age Security (OAS) payments and the Age Credit. OAS is a monthly benefit available to most Canadians age 65 or older. You will be required to repay 15% of the amount by which your net income for 2012 – which includes your OAS benefit – exceeds $69,562. When your net income exceeds $112,966, your entire OAS benefit is clawed back. Age Credit is a nonrefundable tax credit available to Canadians age 65 or older. For 2012, the maximum amount you can claim as an Age Credit is $6,720. This amount is reduced by 15% of your net taxable income in excess of $33,884 is totally gone when your taxable income reaches $78,684. You can avoid OAS and Age Credit clawbacks by keeping your taxable income to the absolute minimum required to meet your needs. Here are some strategies for doing just that. • Pension income splitting You can allocate up to 50% of ‘eligible pension income’ – including payments

from your investments held within a Registered Pension Plan (RPP) (at any age) and Registered Retirement Income (RRIF) (at/after age 65) to your lower earning spouse, which usually reduces your family’s overall tax bill and clawbacks. • Other income-splitting strategies You can gift or loan assets to your spouse for investment purposes, contribute to investments held within a spousal RRSP (if your spouse is under age 71), and/or change who pays for daily living expenses and who invests. • Withdraw the minimum for your RRIF Withdrawals from investments held within a RRIF are fully taxable, so consider withdrawing only the minimum each year. If you have a younger spouse, base your withdrawals on their age – this will produce a smaller minimum withdrawal. • Invest in TFSAs Contributions to Tax-Free Savings Accounts (“TFSA”) generate tax-free investment income. TFSA withdrawals are not taxable, so do not result in clawbacks. • Seek non-registered investments that offer

preferential tax treatment Only 50% of the capital gains generated by equity investments are taxable income, which may result in less of your income being subject to clawbacks. Another strategy to consider is tax-advantaged or switch funds that allow you to buy and sell investments without paying capital gains taxes until you leave the fund structure – so you can choose to defer tax payments to a year when your income is lower. The right strategies can definitely help you avoid clawbacks, reduce your tax burden and preserve your wealth. But to avoid falling afoul of complex tax rules, talk to your professional advisor first. This column, written and published by Investors Group Financial Services Inc.
