Tractor pull goes Sunday

EVENTS

By TARA GESNER tgesner@perfprint.ca

EMC Events – The Almonte Truck & Tractor Pull is fast approaching. This year’s pull takes place Sunday, May 26, at the fairgrounds in Almonte. “Our event gets bigger every year – both participants and visitors said Bryan Brydges. “Last year was our biggest year.” Brydges has been organizing the pull for the last eight years; however, the event has been around for a very long time. “It’s one of the larger pulls in the Ottawa Valley,” he said. In the fall of 2011, a new track was built in front of the grandstand. “It’s what our pullers wanted,” said Brydges, “and it’s a good track – compacted clay that’s like concrete.” The pull runs rain or shine; however too much rain can quickly make the track greasy.

RELAY FOR LIFE

EMC News – In the words of Howie Mandel, “Deal or no deal?” This was the question Carleton Place developer Volunder (Wally) Thorbjornsson wanted answered last Tuesday night, May 14, at the town’s policy review committee meeting. Having pitched a major downtown development proposal ($80 million), Thorbjornsson and his team, the Downtown Development Group (DDG), wanted to know if the municipality was onside. The DDG has offered to purchase municipal property and undertake significant commercial and residential development in the downtown area, involving re-facing, renovating and demolition and construction. Unfortunately for the group, council carried the following motion on a 5-1 recorded vote: “That Volunder Thorbjornsson

be advised that the town’s due diligence analysis has shown that numerous issues need to be resolved before the projects described in the April 21, 2013 offer can seriously be considered and therefore the town will not be accepting the April 21, 2013 offer.” The town was pleased when the group submitted its “exciting” proposal, which included a number of conditions, and although many of the items were agreed upon, three main issues remained. The DDG asked all properties involved in its proposal be exempt from development and building permit fees, as well as all other fees normally charged for similar projects. The town recently provided an exemption to development charges in its downtown (strategic properties) to encourage new projects, but some of the group’s proposed undertakings are outside the boundary. Provincial law does not permit municipalities to exempt se-

town core,” she added. “ I have to agree with what’s being said,” stated deputy mayor Ed Sonnenburg. “Adjusting the boundaries to suit one project made me nervous. We have to look after the town as a whole.” Last Tuesday council approved a recommendation to determine if the area of the downtown, exempt from development charges, should be expanded, and if so, that the development charges issue be considered as a separate issue at a meeting with the topic identified to stakeholders.

lected projects from fees. “You can redraw the map, but you just can’t exempt things,” said Paul Knowles, chief administrative officer (CAO). He said development charge exemptions should be discussed as a separate issue and approved only if they are equitably applied and will accomplish a desired goal. “Looking back at when we were talking about waiving development charges, we didn’t have a really good idea of what area was covered,” said mayor Wendy LeBlanc. “At least I certainly didn’t, and I know it came as a surprise to a number of us sitting around the table that we weren’t going to waive development charges on the upper end of the old Canadian Tire site.” “I am willing to take a look at it and see if there is any merit in expanding the area that we have already identified, and not just because of the projects in front of us, but to see if there are some areas where we could spur more interest in building in the down-

Properties in question The second element was about the two principal projects: Beckwith and Allan streets. “We are just premature,” said Knowles. “We have a drawing and some plans for Beckwith St., but this involves two private properties where See PROPOSAL page A/CP6

Warden proclaims national Access Awareness Week May 26 to June 1 EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Lanark County Council has approved a proclamation to declare May 26 to June 1 National Access Awareness Week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;About 15 per cent of Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 11 million residents have some form of disability, especially as they get older,â&#x20AC;? said warden Bill Dobson (Montague Reeve). â&#x20AC;&#x153;National Access Awareness Week gives us an opportunity to raise awareness and understanding of this issue, and to recognize their needs, capabilities and potential.â&#x20AC;? National Access Awareness Week was first established in 1988 after Rick Hansenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Man in Motionâ&#x20AC;? Tour, which promoted better community access for people with disabilities. The week celebrates achievements made by and for people with disabilities, and is a chance to promote access for people with all disabilities who encounter barriers preventing them from full participation in daily activities. The mission statement for the week is to challenge all Canadians to affect changes through community partnerships that result in equal access and full participation of people with disabilities in all aspects of Canadian life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People with disabilities often face obstacles that prevent them from working, travelling in and having full enjoyment in their communities,â&#x20AC;? explained Ed Sonnenburg, Town of Carleton Place Deputy Reeve and chair of the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s accessibility awareness sub-committee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This can include seniors, too, who experience barriers to activities as part of the natural aging process, and we want to try to make things better. The county is working to meet its goal of becoming an accessible county by eliminating barriers to facilities, services and workplaces.â&#x20AC;? The sub-committee advises county council on how to make the corporation more accessible for people with disabilities and aims to remove any existing barriers over time and to prevent new ones from being created. It was developed as part of the Ontarians with Disabilities Act and its key role is to advise council re-

garding its annual accessibility plan in terms of reviewing site plans for new and existing municipal buildings, as well as checking bylaws, purchases, significant renovations, leased facilities, municipal capital facilities and goods and services provided by the municipalities. It liaises with local municipalities and other accessibility advisory committees and it monitors federal and provincial directives and regulations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are many kinds of barriers out there,â&#x20AC;? Sonnenburg said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Examples are doors that are too heavy for a person in a wheelchair to open or signs that are difficult to read for a person with a visual disability or telephones that a person who is hearing impaired cannot use.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lanark County Council and the people of Lanark County are committed to becoming an inclusive county in which all persons with disabilities can exercise their civil, political, social and cultural rights on an equal basis with other persons,â&#x20AC;? Dobson said as part of the proclamation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to ensure that everyone has the right to live in conditions of dignity, respect and peace.â&#x20AC;? The accessibility advisory subcommittee meets every second month and its decisions are recommended to the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s corporate services committee and then to council. The sub-committee currently has a vacancy for a citizen volunteer. Anyone interested in becoming involved in this important community endeavour should contact Leslie Drynan, deputy clerk, at 613-2674200, ext. 1502 or by email at ldrynan@lanarkcounty.ca.

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Cystic Fibrosis Canada calls on every Canadian to join the fight against cystic fibrosis (CF) during May, Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month. â&#x20AC;&#x153;During May, Cystic Fibrosis Canada raises awareness about the impacts of this devastating disease and generates the crucial funding needed to improve quality of life for almost 4,000 Canadians living with cystic fibrosis,â&#x20AC;? said Lois Graveline at Cystic Fibrosis Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ottawa chapter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our chapter is spearheading many local events, including our 65 Roses Gala and our upcoming Great Strides Walk. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re inviting every member of our community to join us in the fight against cystic fibrosis.â&#x20AC;? Time is precious for Canadians living with cystic fibrosis. Cystic fibrosis is the most common fatal genetic disease that affects Canadian children and young adults. There is no cure. Each week in Canada, two children are diagnosed and one person dies from this disease. The parents of our local CF patientsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; dream of the day a cure will be found. Many are diagnosed at an early age thanks to newborn screening but have to face the daily challenges presented by cystic fibrosis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are just trying to live their lives just like any other normal child or young adult. Improved therapies and the support of our local CF clinic in Ottawa will help with that â&#x20AC;&#x201C; proof that progress is possible,â&#x20AC;? said Graveline. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But this is a disease that robs people of their most vital years, and the support of the community in May is crucial. You never know when the next research breakthrough will happen.â&#x20AC;? There are many ways to support CF fundraising and awareness during May, including registering or sponsoring a walker in the Great Strides walk, and donating to support CF research, care and advocacy. For those interested in learning more about cystic fibrosis or a way to get involved this month, contact Cystic Fibrosis Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ottawa chapter at http://www.cfottawa.ca/. Join the Cystic Fibrosis Canada, Ottawa Chapter for our annual Great Strides walk on Sunday, May 26 and help take steps to cure cystic fibrosis. More than 12,000 Canadians will walk in support of Cystic Fibrosis Canada in 60 locations across Canada. Great Strides will take place at Karters Korner, starting at 10 a.m. Food and entertainment will be available as well as many valuable prizes to be won! Proceeds from the walk fund vital CF research and care. To register, sponsor or join a team, visit or http://www.cfottawa.ca/ great-strides.

EMC Events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; His friends all say those fortunate enough to meet Kevin Henderson would never forget him. He lifted their spirits, made them feel better. Now, all his friends feel is grief. Three months since his untimely passing at the age of 55, Hendersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s friends and fellow motorcycle enthusiasts certainly havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forgotten him. They have planned a memorial poker run in his memory and hope to raise enough money to set up an education fund for Hendersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s young son. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Cooterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ride,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; so called for Hendersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nickname, will take place on Saturday, May 25, and anyone who wants to participate is invited to do so. Given the number of people who knew and liked Henderson, organizers are hoping for a sizeable turnout. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was an incredible person,â&#x20AC;? says friend and neighbour Scott Hall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You meet him for 10 minutes and think you knew him for 10 years.â&#x20AC;? Living next door to the Hendersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, in Hanesville near Iroquois, Hall was shocked when he got a frantic call from Hendersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife saying that something had happened to Kevin. Hall raced over and found his friend collapsed inside the garage, overcome by carbon monoxide. Hall performed CPR until paramedics showed up, but Henderson could not be revived. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was quite the fellow,â&#x20AC;? said friend and co-worker Wade Thompson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He just made everything better.â&#x20AC;? Now, only time will help Hendersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s friends and family feel any better, though even time wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fill the gap-

ing hole his passing has left in their lives. Henderson was a good man, a nice guy who was fun to be around, and his presence will be missed for those reasons alone, but his friends remember Henderson as more than that. He was an impressive man, a very intelligent man with a remarkable faculty for all things mechanical and a seemingly innate intuition as to how things work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d make McGyver look like an amateur,â&#x20AC;? says Hall. He was always in his garage building, dismantling, rebuilding or fixing some sort of machine, and he was particularly interested in motorcycles. But he turned his talents to more than just engines, and he had a remarkable head for facts, able to read or hear something once and retain it for good. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He just seemed to be able to take things in and absorb them,â&#x20AC;? says Thompson. Henderson worked at Du Pont in Maitland and was a popular co-worker, always ready with a joke, a prank, or even just an outlandish tale of his own good-natured hijinx. To hear his familiar greeting â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Howâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s she going?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; was to bring a little smile to your face. Smiles have been in short supply, though, since Feb. 5, when Henderson left behind a wife and two children â&#x20AC;&#x201C; one in his early 20s and one only eight years old. It is for the latter that poker run organizers are hoping to raise money. There will be a 50/50 draw at the end of the event and door prizes will be given away, with a host of goods

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

Reid and Conservative Party have us paying more taxes DEAR EDITOR: Canadian taxpayers are now paying more for less thanks to Lanark, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington MP Scott Reid and the Conservative Party’s costly changes to our national census. The results are in and their decision to eliminate the mandatory longform census has produced much lower-quality data that will often not be useable at the local level. In fact, Statistics Canada withheld data on over 1,100 Canadian municipalities, including Lake of Bays, because the numbers were just too unreliable. The government spent an extra $30 million to collect this inaccurate data compared to the traditional, proven census. What a waste! How will a community know where a food bank is needed if we don’t know which neighbourhoods have the most poverty? How will school boards know where adult language training is most needed without

knowing where immigrants are settling? We just don’t know. The errors in the data will only get worse over time. At least this time Statistics Canada can use the last full census as an anchor to correct some of the problems. Next time, that option won’t do much good. The problem is spreading: governments and the private sector use data from the census to adjust their surveys if a group’s response rate is low. Now all these other statistics will be less reliable. Mr. Reid and the Conservatives are asking us to start making big, expensive decisions blindly, without the basic data that is essential to good planning. And they’re charging us more to do it. It’s irresponsible and we’re paying the price. Geoff Regan, MP Liberal Party of Canada Industry Critic

COMMENTARY Buy your daisies and bands for Interval House EMC Editorial – The Daisy of Hope campaign is now on. Held each year for the month of May – the campaign raises funds locally for chapters of Interval House. Funds which are important in “filling funding gaps in the shelter’s programs and services to help women and children who have experienced domestic violence.” Established in 1999 by Nova Vita Women’s Services in Brantford, the campaign also raises money and awareness of violence again women. For the month, white and yellow daisy pins are being sold, as well as awareness bands. Bands are being sold for $2 each and are available at a variety of retail locations throughout the region. Ultimately, the campaign’s goal isn’t just about raising funds and awareness, but also to increase the profile of Interval House and to have the daisy become a symbol of “hope, representing our collective efforts to end violence against women and their children.” Interval House provides a long list of services which includes accommodation, counseling, a 24-hour crisis line for women in distress, outreach services, group programming and much more. Services are both confidential and free. Each month in Ontario alone, three to four women are murdered by their partners, and one out of every three women has experienced violence from a current or previous partner. Funds are needed to support the much needed programming Interval House provides to the community.

Aunt Lizzie’s strange gifts never served much use EMC Lifestyle - Father’s sister Aunt Lizzie, very wealthy we thought, lived in Regina. Once a year she came out to the homestead in Renfrew County, just to check up on her only brother, and as Mother said, to make sure the farm hadn’t slipped into the Bonnechere River. Aunt Lizzie didn’t think Mother was good farm material. She thought anyone who had lived most of her life in New York City, certainly wouldn’t amount a hill of beans in the backwoods of Renfrew County! Every time she came to visit, the house was in turmoil. Everything had to be scrubbed within an inch of its life, and my sister Audrey and I had to give up our bed and the little washstand we shared at the top of the stairs. Even the top had to be cleared off, so my collection of little stones I cherished...small little stones I picked up on the farm and which I loved dearly, had to be put in a little paper bag and tucked away for keeping in a safe place. Audrey’s hand mirror and comb, too, had to find a new home for Aunt Lizzie’s visit. Even though she was his sister, Father was always in a lather when Aunt

Lizzie came for her yearly visit. She insisted on bringing him something which served no earthly purpose, and which she thought he shouldn’t live without. And often the hand-me-down box, usually included a present for Father which made little or no sense whatsoever. Like the kimono. Father had never laid eyes on a kimono before, but he insisted on wearing it when we had neighbours in for euchre one Saturday night. Even Mother couldn’t talk him out of putting it on, but when Uncle Alec after dealing out the cards, asked Father what in tarnation he had on over his shirt and trousers, Father decided the kimono just wasn’t for him. When Aunt Lizzie visited us in Renfrew County, she never failed to bring Father some outlandish gift, which she insisted was just what he needed. One summer it was a dress shirt with a high round celluloid collar, which Father had to wear to church the Sunday she was there. It took both Mother and Aunt Lizzie to button it around his neck, and when he got home he said his head ached and his ears were ringing.

Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

He never wore the shirt again. I thought the small stiff straw hat with the narrow brim, and the narrow black ribbon looked much better than the big old tattered one Father wore around the farm. Aunt Lizzie bought it at Walker’s Store in Renfrew and she never let Father forget that she had paid a whole .75 cents for it! That didn’t make him like it any better, especially when he saw the identical hat on a woman in the Lutheran Church one Sunday! Well, one summer, Aunt Lizzie arrived, and as usual, the house was in a turmoil. She re-arranged the furniture without even an if-you-please to Mother, all of which was promptly moved back where it belonged the minute the train left Renfrew station.

to go into Renfrew to do some shopping for him, as what she had in mind was too bulky to pack in her cow-hide suitcases. Father wasn’t too pleased, but Mother told him to get it over with...there would be no living with his sister until she had her way. And off they went in the Model T on the Saturday. I couldn’t wait to see what Aunt Lizzie had in mind for Father. When they got home, Father was like a thunder cloud, changed into his bib overalls and headed for the barn. Aunt Lizzie came in with a shoe box under her arm. She opened it on the kitchen table, and there was a pair of men’s shoes the likes of which I had never seen before. They were black shiny patent leather, with white leather insets under the laces, and the toes were so pointed, Emerson said you could kick the eyes out of a snake at 50 paces! Aunt Lizzie insisted Father wear them to church the next day, which he did with great reluctance, but the minute he got home, they were exchanged for his black well-worn work boots. Aunt Lizzie said he should wear them ADVERTISING SALES: ADVERTISING SALES CO-ORDINATOR Andrea Harding SALES: Cheryl Johnston, Sharon Sinfield, 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

all day to break them in. Father sat and looked at the shoes for the longest time, and I could tell he was thinking long and hard. He put the new shoes back on and headed for the barn to do the Sunday night chores. When he came in for supper, you wouldn’t recognize the new black and white leather shoes. They were covered with manure, grass and mud, and you couldn’t tell where the white insets started and the black toes began. Even Father’s socks were ready for the Monday washing! I knew without question Father, who was meticulous about both himself and the barns, had deliberately ruined the shoes. Aunt Lizzie flew into a fit, grabbed the shoes and went out to the rain barrel with a whisk and a rag. She agreed then they should only be worn to church on Sunday. Her train left before the week was out, and she wasn’t around to see if Father was in his new shoes at the Lutheran Church. Like the kimono, the shirt with the celluloid collar, and the straw hat, the shoes vanished, never to be seen again on the farm at Northcote. • 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.

The artifact digitization project was funded by the Museum Assistance Program (Department of Canadian Heritage) for two consecutive years for a total of $17,200 in 2010 and 2011. The digitizing of the research collection (books) and the optical recognition of back issues of the Almonte Gazette was funded by the Museum and Technology Fund through the provincial government for $40,733 from 2011 to 2013. Museum curator Michael Rikley-Lancaster believes there are a number of benefits in having the collection available online. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are making it accessible to everyone. Now people from all over the world can access the collection. It helps promote the museum and entices people to come see more,â&#x20AC;? said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It helps for future exhibit planning and planning at other museums. Plus, it helps with the preservation of the artifacts because you are not always handling an item.â&#x20AC;? It will also assist people who are conducting research on the woolen era. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will help them invest in their research and open doors for them and we will learn more from that research as well,â&#x20AC;? said Rikley-Lancaster. Matthew Moxley, administrative assistant at the museum, worked extensively on the project after Alexandra Blades started it.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We took the artifact and took pictures of it from a few different angles and then put it in the new database system, PastPerfect,â&#x20AC;? explained Moxley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I then uploaded all of the photos and added a description to the item, like you are describing it to someone over the phone and the history of the artifact.â&#x20AC;? Photographing the artifacts also helped document its condition, something that has recently changed in the museum field. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not long ago you would draw the artifact on the conditioning report and mark on it certain condition issues,â&#x20AC;? said Rikley-Lancaster. Approximately 3,000 artifacts were put in the database, each with an average of four different pictures that users are now able to search. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really simple to search,â&#x20AC;? explained Moxley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You just click under the collections tab on the website, go to library or artifacts and type in a keyword or category.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I enjoy with the keyword search is that it comes up with a list,â&#x20AC;? added Rikley-Lancaster. During the process they were also able to learn more about some of the artifacts they have in the collection. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a lace expert come in and they were able to identify if the item was handmade or machine made,â&#x20AC;? said Moxley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has enabled us to do more research, in a really detailed way and the experts enjoyed the process as well,â&#x20AC;? continued Rikley-Lancaster. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a real win-win for so many groups.â&#x20AC;? The next step in the artifact and library process will be to add oral histories to the online database.

will soon be searchable to anyone online. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brilliant,â&#x20AC;? said RikleyLancaster. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is very exciting and it will open a lot of doors for our staff and the public. All groups will be able to access it and I think it will have a huge impact.â&#x20AC;? The idea to put the Almonte Gazette online came after Rikley-Lancaster was speaking with a volunteer from the museum and the Mississippi Mills Library. He soon found out from the Mississippi Mills chief librarian that the library had already digitized the 150year newspaper collection. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just needed to do the digital recognition part,â&#x20AC;? said Rikley-Lancaster. Rikley-Lancaster says the project would not have been possible without the support of the library and its foundation. Through the grant money the museum had received and additional money from the Mississippi Mills Library and Elizabeth Kelly Foundation, they then purchased Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software. Moxley then set out to make it searchable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We took the digitized JPEG of the Almonte Gazette page and then put it into OCR and saved it into PDF files,â&#x20AC;? explained Moxley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now people can search the text.â&#x20AC;? Currently, the Gazette database is in a test phase and the goal is to have it searchable to the public online by mid-summer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are working out some kinks but overall it is working fine,â&#x20AC;? assured Rikley-Lancaster. They have had some small issues with OCR not recognizing some of the fonts but have had a success rate of 90 per cent Gazette online for font recognition.

M&M Meat Shops raises $1.2 million for Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Colitis Foundation EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; On Saturday, May 11, franchisees, staff and thousands of volunteers at 430 M&M Meat Shops locations across Canada joined together to raise $1.2 million for the Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Colitis Foundation of Canada (CCFC). Supporters from coast to coast lined up to celebrate M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day and raise funds to help CCFC cure Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease and ulcerative colitis and improve the lives of children and adults affected by these chronic diseases. To date, M&M Meat Shopsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; franchisees, customers and volunteers have raised more than $24.3 million for this worthy cause. This year marked the 25th anniversary M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day and Canadians enjoyed thousands of hamburgers and hot dogs. Proceeds raised will go directly to CCFC to invest in research, education, awareness and advocacy for irritable bowel syndrome (IBD), a disease that affects more than 233,000 Canadian men, women and children. This year, M&M Meat Shops

Charity BBQ Day was pleased to have 13 year-old Landon Lafond as a CCFC representative for the event. Lafond understands all too well what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like to live with IBD. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was diagnosed with Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease five years ago,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love to volunteer and have been proud to help raise money for Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and colitis research by helping out at M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day, as well as participating in CCFCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gutsy Walk. M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day is an important way to raise money and awareness for Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease and ulcerative colitis, and hopefully, help kids like me feel better.â&#x20AC;?

could not have been accomplished without the help of thousands of volunteers and dedicated M&M Meat Shops franchisees, who tirelessly facilitated barbecues and promoted the event in their local communities across the country. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Due to the research investments made by CCFC and partners such as M&M Meat Shops, significant progress has been made in understanding the fundamental biology of the intestine and the genetic and environmental contributors to IBDâ&#x20AC;? said CCFC chief executive officer Dr. Kevin W. Glasgow. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our 25-yearpartnership with M&M Meat Shops has made an enormous difference in our effort to find a cure for IBD and improve the lives of children and adults affected by these chronic diseases. These donations, combined with the hard work of thousands of volunteers, raise a significant portion of our annual research funds in just one day.â&#x20AC;?

EMC News – Mississippi Lake will reap the benefits of a $69,900 Ontario Trillium Foundation grant to complete a lake plan over the next two years. In partnership with the Centre for Sustainable Watersheds (CSW), the recipients of the grant, and the Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority, the Mississippi Lake Association (MLA) will, through the lake planning process, address some longstanding issues facing the lake. A lake plan is an action plan developed by the lake residents and larger community to understand and preserve the special character of their lake.

The process involves the lake community working together to develop goals and actions aimed at protecting what people value about their lake and its health. Lake plans often make recommendations about land use policy, stewardship actions helpful to the lake and ways in which the lake community can work in partnership to achieve their goals. “We’re very thankful to the Trillium foundation for the grant and excited to be working with the conservation authority and the Centre for Sustainable Watersheds in doing the lake plan” stated Vern Runnells,

president of the MLA. “The plan will help us unite as a lake community and put together a plan we can call our own that protects what we love about our lake,” he went on to add. The plan will be undertaken in collaboration with local municipalities Mississippi Mills, Carleton Place, Beckwith, Lanark Highlands, and Drummond-North Elmsley. An extensive public consultation process will aim to get input from all individuals and groups who have an interest in the welfare of Mississippi Lake. Anyone wanting to help the

REGIONAL NEWS

Algonquins of Ontario host forum in Perth June 3 EMC News – The Algonquins of Ontario (AOO) are inviting Members of Parliament, Members of Provincial Parliament and municipal representatives whose jurisdictions or ridings fall within the settlement area to three forums on the Preliminary Draft Agreement-in-Principle (AIP), being held from May 22 to June 3. The preliminary draft AIP, released on Dec. 13, is the result of many years of negotiations between the AOO, Canada and Ontario. Our negotiations, beginning in 1991, continue to build on the determined efforts of the Algonquin people to be heard – including the first message that was delivered to the Crown through an Algonquin petition in 1772. These forums aim to complement the many public information sessions held this past

March and April as well as provide an opportunity for the Algonquins of Ontario and elected officials from all levels of government to build and strengthen their relationships with one another. The Algonquin negotiation representatives and other members of the Algonquin Technical Advisory Group will be on hand to share information about the preliminary draft AIP, to answer questions and to hear comments. The first two forums were held May 22 in Eganville and May 31 in North Bay, but the local one is upcoming Monday, June 3. It will take place at Perth Civitan Hall (6787 County Road 43) from 2 to 5 p.m., with a presentation at 3 p.m. Following the presentation and a question and answer period at the forum, an opportunity will be made available to media to have their questions addressed.

Plugging into the global community By DON MERCER

EMC Lifestyle - Four years ago, I contributed the first article to the “Kemptville Advance” in what was hoped would be a one or two year series of monthly write-ups pertaining to Food Science from a non-academic perspective. It was about “Food Science Training in Sub-Saharan Africa” – an area which still remains important to me. Looking back at more than forty topics covered since then, it is amazing to see how many different aspects of food we have examined. One of my personal favourites was about smashing “WintO-Green Life Savers” ® with a hammer late at night on the concrete floor in our darkened garage to watch the sparks being emitted. This was due to the rapid input of energy forcing some electrons to a higher energy level within the sugar crystals that make up the hard candies. When the electrons returned to their original energy levels, they would release tiny bluishgreen sparks of light. Oddly enough, one of the first things that hit me in preparing the earlier articles was not having to use the stodgy third person singular impersonal pronoun “it”, with everything being passive instead of active, as required in most scientific writings. There is something inherently refreshing and liberating about being able to say, “We did this”, rather than, “It was found that…..”. These articles have

provided the opportunity to just talk normally (at least I hope that’s the case). Aside from the fun of doing some rather crazy things, it is quite striking to observe how incredibly small the world has become, along with the common interests that we share. This is especially true with respect to food. For the past ten years, it has been my pleasure to work with the International Union of Food Science and Technology (IUFoST). Wondering if there might be an interest in these articles outside the Kemptville area, I sent a few samples to them and was greeted by a totally positive response. Soon, there was a quick link to “Food 101: 21 Stories and Ideas” on the www.iufost.org website. Later, six more stories were added. Then, five more were added, bringing the total to thirty-two as of March 2013. In February 2012, “Mango World Magazine” picked up one of the stories about mango drying in Malawi and included it as a focus article in their on-line E-magazine. In February 2013, “The World of Food Science” E-magazine which is published by IUFoST out of Australia bundled three of the food drying stories into a focus article titled “Around the Table with Food Science: Food Drying 101”. Earlier this year, I had something of a reverse experience. While sitting in a hotel room in Morogoro, Tanzania (west of Dar es Salaam), I submitted an

article to the “Kemptville Advance” one Monday evening. That Friday morning, while still in Africa, I saw it in print on the newspaper’s website. This might not be surprising to many of you in light of your own experiences with instant communication through e-mails and the like. However, it is definitely noteworthy considering that even a year or so ago, it was not all that easy to access the Internet from many places in rural Africa. The overall impact of improved electronic communications within Africa is far more significant than may seem initially apparent. One of the major challenges in providing Food Science training to food industry workers in Sub-Saharan Africa has been reaching interested individuals spread throughout 48 countries, covering over twenty-five million square kilometres, populated by more than 800 million people. Seeing first-hand how Internet connectivity is increasing yearly helps strengthen our resolve to expand the range of Distance Education courses being offered and expand beyond our initial geographical boundaries of Sub-Saharan Africa. Looking back, it is most gratifying and humbling to see how articles in our local Kemptville Advance have been leveraged to reach a much broader audience at the global level. Thank you so much. Don Mercer is a Associate Professor, Food Science, Kemptville Campus University of Guelph.

EMC News – The Smiths Falls Horticultural Society held its wildly popular annual plant sale at the Smiths Falls Royal Canadian Legion Branch 95 on May 11. Early risers took advantage of the plant sale auction at 8:45 a.m. and by 9:30 a.m., many of the plants were already gone.

Big Sky Ranch to celebrate 10 years with two big events at raceway By SABINE GIBBINS

EMC Events – Big Sky Ranch Animal Sanctuary has spent the past 10 years caring, fostering, and finding homes for animals. To mark their special anniversary, the non-profit organization is putting out all the stops. The Kemptville-area charity will be hosting not one but two fun-filled events on June 23 at Rideau Carleton Raceway, located at 4837 Albion Road. ANIMALFEST runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and provides fun for the whole family. Activities include pony rides, live entertainment, face painting, carnival inflatables, games, birthday cake, Shake-A-Paw Dog Training show, a classic car display, and much more. Admission is free. Then, from 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. and offers an evening of fun for adults. Festivities include live racing, $5 worth of casino tokens, a silent auction and a special birthday celebration

About Big Sky Ranch Big Sky Ranch Animal Sanctuary is the only non-kill sanctuary of its kind in Eastern Ontario, due to its nature of working with many kinds of animals as opposed to limiting its resources to a limited few. The organization believes that all animals deserve a second chance without a time limit. Their non-kill policy has one compassionate exception, if any animal, upon veterinarian inspection and prognosis, has no chance at any sort of recovery and is found to be suffering and in chronic pain, the animal will undertake euthanasia. They do not want any animal suffering. After the animal’s rehabilitation, the Sanctuary does offer the animal a second chance for adoption (where possible), however some animals, sadly, will never be suitable for adoption. In this instance the Sanctuary offers these specific and special animals a permanent home to live out the rest of their natural lives amongst their own kind.

As with humans, animals do get lonely and suffer from depression - they require companionship and above all a reason to live. Big Sky Ranch Animal Sanctuary works hard to enable a better understanding between humans and animals, as most of these animals in our care, have not only been mistreated in the past, but also, simply misunderstood. We strive to improve relations between animals and humans, as well as educate people to a higher level of understanding when it comes to any animal related issue. These topics are involved in many areas of the Sanctuary, be it through; pamphlets, media - radio, television, newspapers, visiting sessions (both at the Sanctuary and away), mall visits and child day camps.

Learn how to compost at REAL workshops June 1, 22 in Smiths Falls EMC Events – Composting is nature’s way of recycling valuable materials. Humans have learned how to do it and the benefits to us are enormous: we get “gardener’s gold”, the best supplement for our gardens and lawns; we reduce garbage going to landfill by 30 per cent; and our garbage no longer stinks! It’s been many years since backyard composting was promoted in the region, so the Rideau Environmental Action League (REAL) has decided to hold some backyard composting workshops and create a demonstration backyard composting site at its environment centre.

The workshops will be led by Cheryl Nash of ecoPerth. Nash has a 25-year history in backyard, large scale and commercial composting and has managed dozens of centralized composting facilities across North America, Europe and Thailand. A decade or so ago, many municipalities in the region provided subsidized composters. Many people took advantage, some tried and gave up. Some of the subsidized composters were not the best, so if you had struggles it may not be your fault. These workshops are intended to help new and experienced composters, and those in between, who

may have tried and stopped, or who might have a rather inactive pile in the backyard, or those who just have questions about managing their existing pile. They will be held Saturday, June 1 and Saturday, June 22, from 10 a.m. to noon at the REAL Reuse Store and Environment Centre with a third planned for late September. Nash will explain how to compost, and how to address various problems, including some tips for managing food waste in the kitchen and winter challenges. Participants will also build various styles of inexpensive composters that can be used as is, or

R0012108752

THE EMC - 27 - Thursday, May 23, 2013

to augment existing systems. They will be made from readily available materials such as pallets, chicken fencing and tarps. These composters will then be used in the demonstration site. Registration is required so we can plan appropriate materials. Please email Cheryl@ecoperth.on.ca or call the REAL office at 613-283-9500. REAL is subsidizing the workshops, but there is a $10 fee to offset some costs. As a bonus, REAL is providing participants with a free membership for 2013. REAL is also pleased to provide some completely subsidized work-

shop spaces on request. REAL is also asking that if anyone has a composter that they don’t plan to use, that they consider donating it so it can either be put to use at the demonstration site, or provided to another user. Please drop it at the REAL Deal Reuse Store at 85 William St. West in Smiths Falls, opposite the railway museum. The Rideau Environmental Action League (REAL) is a 24-year old community based environmental organization focused on practical solutions. Visit us at REALaction.ca.

Provincial â&#x20AC;&#x153;flowerâ&#x20AC;? dominates landscape this spring EMC Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Spring has sprung and despite the rollercoaster temperatures one of the traditional harbingers of the season is now among the most prominent features in our community and across the district. The resilient dandelion always survives. Icy cold or scorching heat, desert dry or monsoon wet this adaptable weed with the familiar yellow blossom is springing up by the trillions in lawns, fields and public parks everywhere. After a particularly cold spring the very first green growth I saw was a dandelion sprout poking out of a crack in the pavement in a sunny, sheltered location in Carleton Place where we live. After three consecutive days of plus temperatures the dandelions were popping up everywhere. Not that this hardy weed needs much help of course. But since former Premier Dalton McGuinty and his Liberal government banned the use of pesticides on residential properties and parkland in

2009 the dandelion has been multiplying at an even greater rate. In fact I now refer to it as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unofficial provincial flower.â&#x20AC;? The trillium is our seldom seen official flower. Dandelion seeds are so efficient that no matter where they latch on a new plant follows. They need virtually no space to put down a deep root. Despite spending much of our time working or volunteering my wife and I have always tried to keep our small piece of Canada presentable. We live in a well-established neighbourhood. We cut the grass regularly, work to eradicate weeds and plant flower borders every spring. We also hire professionals to aerate and fertilize the lawn as well as use weed suppressing products to try and keep dandelions and a wide array of other weeds at bay. Like many other people who take pride in their property we have been frustrated by the pesticide ban which,

Reflections BY JEFF MAGUIRE

for three summers, has given weeds the upper hand. It takes a lot of time and patience to dig out weeds one at a time. In an effort to stay in business, lawn care providers have turned to other â&#x20AC;&#x153;legal substancesâ&#x20AC;? in an effort to help control weeds. A certain iron-based product is showing promising results in this ongoing battle. The firm we hire has been applying it for the past couple of years and it has definitely helped. Two weeks ago, just after I had cut the grass, the lawn care folks arrived right on cue to aerate, over seed and fertilize our property. A lady and her young male assistant went about their jobs diligently. During a break I spoke to her to make sure she knew a narrow strip of land between

our driveway and an adjoining property is ours. As we stood surveying the subdivision she observed, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of your neighbours arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t giving you much help are they.â&#x20AC;? She pointed to impressive acreages of dandelions up and down our street and adjoining arteries. Partial ban I opposed the pesticide ban when it was originally introduced on the grounds of science. Properly applied most pesticides â&#x20AC;&#x201C; especially what we were using in Canada â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are not the deadly cocktail proponents of the ban claimed. If they were then why wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a total ban implemented? The agriculture industry is not laboring under this ban and to my knowledge golf courses remain exempt. At the time the pesticide ban took effect in 2009 I would estimate 60 per cent of residents in our large subdivision of single family homes were taking care of their

lawns. In order to do so effectively some folks hired lawn care specialists who sprayed the weeds. Of course the other 40 per cent were the reason 60 per cent of us were diligent about lawn and property care. Those in the minority did little or nothing with their properties meaning weeds and crabgrass encroached onto their neighbourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s land, or their neglected lots made the whole street look bad. Four years later the situation is reversed. Now I would say those who care for their lawns regularly in our community is about 40 per cent (and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being generous). The rest either didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do much previously or they have now given up in the wake of the pesticide ban. The parks staff here does a first-rate job. But obviously they face the same problem the rest of us do when it comes to weed eradication. On our travels I notice

that in some communities the problem is even worse. Perhaps maintenance staff in those places has thrown in the towel? Of course when property owners fail to cut their lawns the fallout (literally) impacts all of us. Seeds from weedinfested lawns eventually become airborne, spreading across the subdivision and the community. Why canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t people at least cut their lawns before dandelions and other weeds go to seed? Evidently some people arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t easily embarrassed. If our property looked like so many I see in our town and across the district we would be mortified! It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take much effort to cut the grass or hire someone to do it. When we bought this property 23 years ago the lawn was, to put it mildly, the pits! It had not been well cared for. We poured thousands of See COLUMN page 31

REGIONAL NEWS COLUMN From page 30

dollars into the property and the result was a credible lawn. While working in the yard each summer I often received compliments from passersby on the state of our property. During one family gathering my sister-in-law said, “Your lawn is like velvet!” Obviously that made us feel the effort and expense was worthwhile. Sadly we can’t say the same thing today although we are continuing to try and salvage the situation. I know my correspondents on the anti-pesticide bandwagon (the winners in this debate as it turns out) will continue to scream and send more mail when they read this column. But I simply haven’t read or heard enough scientific evidence to convince me the chemicals, which were once used by professionals to kills weeds on our property, are harmful when properly ap-

plied by experts. Still, if I needed any assurance about the safety of what was used on our lawn every year up until 2009 it was underlined by the fact those who dispensed it wore everyday work clothes. They didn’t even don masks or coveralls to complete the task. Surely if they thought there was even a slight chance the chemicals they were using all day could harm them in any way, they would have worn full protection from head-to-toe? I asked about it actually. The operators said studies showed the sprays they were applying were “benign” in terms of their impact on the human body. Their demeanor and their methods underlined the point. Besides lawn care specialists, people in the agriculture industry (including my brother who is an orchard operator), believe the current ban is politically motivated. The Liberals are appealing to

people in vote rich urban areas that have little if any understanding of agriculture for example. Farmers in particular wonder how far governments will eventually go in this regard? They’re concerned a total ban on pesticides would further cripple our already ailing agriculture industry. The bottom line is that chemical spraying of certain crops is absolutely essential. If the government is really concerned about public health, first and foremost, then why are there exemptions? Still, I remain hopeful science will provide a better solution to deal with our unofficial provincial flower and other weeds. If they do, don’t be surprised if the naysayers find a reason for yet another ban. If you have any comments or questions for Jeff Maguire he can be reached by email at jeffrey.maguire@rogers.com.

GODDARD Raymond Gilling (Gil) September 2, 1921May 13, 2013 We say goodbye to Gil Goddard, a beautiful and rare human being. A man of consummate kindness, gentle integrity and true honour - a man who quoted poetry, who loved to dance and laugh, who loved the forests and lakes and taught his children to love them, too. Everyone who knew him recognized his signature, life-affirming stride, bright and ready smile and - especially - his sly humour. A WWII veteran (First Canadian Infantry) and Graduate of McGill and Bishop’s Universities, Gil was the second son of the late John and Mabel Goddard, brother to Perry and the late Paul Goddard. He was truly devoted husband to the late Elizabeth Goddard (Macdonald) for over 60 years, gifted father to sons John (Debbie), Allan, Peter and David (Nancy), and daughters Jennifer (Grant), Barbara and Katherine and adoring grandfather to Graeme, Geoffrey and Naomi Goddard, and to Keenan Goddard-Donovan. Dearly loved by his family; loved, respected and admired by so very, very many, Gil will be sadly and sorely missed. A memorial service of celebration for Gilling and Elizabeth Goddard will be held at 11:00am, Saturday, June 15, 2013 at St. Paul’s Anglican Church in Almonte. A reception will be held at the church following the service, to which all of Gil and Libby’s friends are welcomed. Donations in name and honour of Gilling and Elizabeth may be made, with our thanks, to the Almonte General Hospital Foundation. Funeral Services Entrusted Into The Care Of C. R.

OBITUARY

KINCH Cecil Wellington Kinch On April 22, 2013 we lost a Dad, a Grandpa and a friend. Dad passed away peacefully at the Smiths Falls site of the Perth Smiths Falls Community Hospital after being a patient there for 10 days. He was born October 19, 1917, one of eight boys to Richard and Mae Kinch of Kinchstreet. He helped on the family farm as well as hired out on other farms in the community. He was educated at the Kinchstreet one room school. In his early twenties, he enlisted in the army and served in Halifax and later overseas in Holland. On November 7, 1944 he married Rheta Elizabeth Botham, a union that lasted 63 years until her death. They lived for a short time in Halifax before he went overseas. Upon his return home they settled on a farm on Kinchstreet, raising a family and residing there until the last. Cecil farmed, was the local livestock caregiver, and helped neighbours through out the community. In 1963 he decided to take his helping one step further and run for local council. This was the start of a very prosperous political career for Dad. His common sense approach allowed him to serve 8 years as councillor. Six as Deputy Reeve and 19 years as Reeve of Kitley Township. His tenure saw Kitley Park developed, a new Volunteer Fire Department and hall and the new Township ofďŹ ce and Library. In 1984 he was elected Warden of the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville. In 2002 he was awarded the Golden Jubilee Medal for life long dedication to his community. At the ripe age of eighty he decided to retire. He spent his spare time hunting and ďŹ shing with his brothers and grandkids and at home with Mom. He was a strong family man that was always ready to help his children and grandchildren.

IN MEMORIAM

COMING EVENTS

GOURLEY - In loving memory of a dear Nan/Grand-Nan, Thelma, who passed away on May 27, 2012. We must let go as she journeys on. She would want it just that way But I know we will meet again On a distant shore someday. And when we do, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll share a joke, and a cup of tea. Though just for now, she goes on alone While we treasure her memory. Always in our Hearts Tracy, Jamie and Adam

RAYWORTH, Jean Ruby - May 20, 2006. Today is remembered and quietly kept No words are needed we shall never forget For those we love donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go away You walk beside us everyday. Unseen and unheard but always near So loved and so missed, so very dear. No further away than a memory You will always be in our hearts Until we meet again Mom. Love Always, Nancy & Dan

MCCONNELL, Gordon L-

ROBINSON, Mackenzie Paige - May 29, 2006. Tonight the stars are shining On a lonely silent grave Where sleeps in dreamless slumber One we could not save, No one knows the silent heartaches Only those who lost can tell Of the grief we bear in silence For the one we loved so well. So when the winds of love blow softly And whisper so youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll hear We will always love and miss you And wish that you were here. Our little Angel Love Always, Nana and Pappy

In loving memory of Gordon who passed away May 18, 2012. A year has passed since you were with us. The memory of those happy days, When we were all together, His name we often recall, And his picture on the wall. Just when his life was brightest, Just when his hopes were best, God called him from among us To a home of eternal rest. Gone dear Husband and Father, gone forever. How we miss your smiling face. But you left us to remember, None on earth can take your place. A happy home we once enjoyed, How sweet the memory still. But death has left a loneliness, The world can never fill. Think of you often, Shirley, Bruce And Amy Love always

Lyle Kenneth Manson In loving memory of Lyle Kenneth who left us May 25, 1994. We seldom ask for miracles, But today just one would do We would leave the door wide open, And watch you walk right through. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reach out and touch you, But we know that you are near You walk beside us always As we face another year. Forever loved and sadly missed by Mum, Dad and Families xxoo

Popular Franktown Lilac Festival returns Saturday By TARA GESNER tgesner@perfprint.ca

EMC Events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Lilac blooms herald spring as surely as the first robin. The neighbourhood festival season kicks off Saturday (May 25) with the 2013 Lilac Festival in Franktown, the Lilac Capital of Ontario. Musical entertainment, childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s games and activities, food and beverages, a craft show and so much more, the festival has something for everyone in the family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a nice way to spend the day,â&#x20AC;? said Cora Nolan, a member of the festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s organizing committee, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and with the exception of your food, everything is free.â&#x20AC;? The event goes rain or shine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once you advertise it (festival), you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t very well cancel it,â&#x20AC;? said Nolan with a chuckle. The jam-packed day begins with a pancake breakfast at 8 a.m., hosted by Beckwith Irish Minor Football. Festival goers can enjoy hot cakes up until 10:30 a.m. at Centennial Hall. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget to register between 10:15 and 10:30 a.m. at St. James Anglican Church for the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bike Parade â&#x20AC;&#x201C; now in its third year. Ahead of the procession, participants are invited to decorate their bikes, and the theme is spring. Prizes will be handed out for the best use of theme and the best use of colour. There are two age groups: two to five and six to 10. The parade departs the church at 10:45 a.m. and finishes at Centennial Hall at 11 a.m. Once again, St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church will host its Lilac Lunch & Bake Sale from

The annual Lilac Festival in Franktown unfolds this Saturday, May 25 with plenty for the whole family to enjoy. Above, take a fragrant horse drawn wagon tour down Lilac Lane. Above right, the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bike Parade is always popular, as is live entertainment. Almonteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Johnny Spinks, below, will be pack to perform this year. 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The barbecue grill will fire up outside Centennial Hall at 11 a.m., serving up hamburgers and hot dogs until 2 p.m. to hungry visitors. Between 12 and 3:30 p.m. sit back, relax and enjoy the true beauty and sweet smell of lilacs with a horse drawn wagon ride down popular Lilac Lane. Enjoy a ham and bean supper at Centennial Hall, running from 4 to 7 p.m. Scalloped potatoes, coleslaw, pasta salad, rolls and homemade pies complete the menu.

six eat for free. Offering up live entertainment Saturday: Underdog Parrot Show (11:30 a.m.) and Almonteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Johnny Spinks (1 to 5 p.m.) People are reminded to bring a lawn chair. Throughout the day enjoy a craft market, various garage sales (all over town), a restored antique vehicle display, childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s games and activities, silent auction and 50/50 draw. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have upwards of 24 crafters taking part,â&#x20AC;? said Nolan, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and there will be a good variety of items for sale.â&#x20AC;? Monies raised by way of the silent auction go back to Beckwith Township, offsetting the costs associated with the

entertainment, wagon rides, portable potty rental, etc. Lilacs are typically a shade of purple, but white, pink, light yellow and even dark burgundy exist. The bushes have an enchanting fragrance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Already in bloom, the lilacs are holding on,â&#x20AC;? said Nolan, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and hopefully we will have nice weather Saturday.â&#x20AC;? St. James Anglican Church and Centennial Hall are located on Church St. St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church is along Highway 15. For additional information, contact the municipal office in Beckwith by calling 613-2571539 or Nolan at 613-2833789.

EMC News – Students from the Grade 10 History class at Almonte District High School are continuing the Lest We Forget project this semester. The class recently travelled to the National Archives to research each student’s soldier’s personal military file, which allowed students to see and touch pieces of history directly related to their soldier. The students are seeking the public’s help as they research soldiers from the Almonte and Pakenham cenotaphs. The following soldiers are listed: Joseph Lalonde, Frank Lester Fisher, Carl Lee, William Stanley, William Hefferman, Joseph Lavigne, Robert Duncan, Harold Stokes, Raymond Houston, Victor Stewart, Russell James, William Campbell, Robert Henry Deugo, C.C. Farrell, Earnest Boyce Laidlaw, Kenneth Miller, Donald Scott, Kenneth Scott and E.J. Ledoux. Also being researched are Louis (Lewis) Bolton and Howard Boddy. Anyone who has information on the soldiers is encouraged to contact history teacher Jennifer Yake at Jennifer.yake@ucdsb.on.ca or call the school at 613-256-1470.

WATER RESTRICTIONS The Watering Restrictions By-law 04-14 is designed to regulate and control the usage

of water, within the Almonte Ward, in the hot summer months. Between May 1st and September 30th each year there are limitations on who can water and at what time. Odd number houses may water on odd calendar days and even numbered houses may water on even numbered days. Watering may occur between the hours of 5:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. each day and from only one connection. Midday is the hottest time of the day and the water is more likely to be wasted through evaporation when watering at this time. Watering from more than one connection simply uses too much water at once. A significant amount of new grass or sod is exempted from these provisions for one week. Any other violations of the by-law may result in a fine.

Brown-eyed susans deemed official flower for Carleton Place By LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com

EMC News – It’s official – the flower power for Carleton Place is the brown-eyed susan. Carleton Place in Bloom ran a contest recently with three flowers in the running to be the official one for the town, including the white daisy and the day lily. “It was very close,” said Debby Lytle of the bloom committee. “It was between the white daisy and the brown-eyed susan. I was going for the daisy.” “And I was going for the browneyed susan,” said mayor Wendy LeBlanc with a laugh, as she grabbed a potted plant and gave it shake. The committee was on hand Saturday, May 18 during the official opening of the Carleton Place Farmers’ Market where they gave away 100 plants to the first 100 customers who purchased something at the market. Only two hours into their day and they had already given away 90 of them. “These are great plants,” LeBlanc said. “They’re easy to grow. It is nice to have an official flower now that we can feature throughout town and in our gardens and neighbourhoods.” Lytle added that the brown-eyed susan is a “friendly flower and we can give that first impression that Carleton Place is a friendly town.” The naming of the official flower goes hand-in-hand with the recent naming of the town’s official tree – the hackberry tree.

long time coming.” Builders are putting the finishing touches on the new $148,000 roof – a cost that was split with the town ($75,000 budgeted, according to Coun. Louis Antonakos), the farmers’ market and the Business Improvement Area (BIA), said Amber Hall, market coordinator. “Construction started three weeks ago and it’s a six-week project,” she said. “It’s been really quick.” There are 26 vendors this year and they may expand to the parking lot if there enough interest, Sheets said. “We’ve been seeing a lot of new faces today, and some returning folks. It’s been a really great day to kick off the market,” she continued. “We have a lot of new vendors with new products, and the returning vendors with their stock. We have a great following here and people come from Ottawa, Smiths Falls, Perth…we have a great selection.” The market is open on Saturday mornings from 8 a.m. to noon, through to Oct. 12. It’s located at the corner of Lake Avenue and Beckwith St. Look for a related story on the Photo by LAURIE WEIR Carleton Place in Bloom members, from left: Mayor Wendy LeBlanc, Debby Lytle, Amanda Blakeley and Market Square roof in this week’s Ronette Vines give away brown-eyed susans to the first 100 customers at the farmers’ market opening on Canadian Gazette.

Saturday. This plant has been named the town’s official flower. “It’s quite rare (the hackberry tree), but we have about 700 of them here in Carleton Place,” said LeBlanc. “It’s believed they were brought here by the First Nations people as the tree’s berries were used for medicinal purposes…the

Ceremony Sunday in Almonte remembers Battle of the Atlantic By TARA GESNER tgesner@perfprint.ca

EMC Events – There is a lot to remember. Branch 240 (Almonte) of the Royal Canadian Legion and members of the public will join May 26 to pause and honour the Battle of the Atlantic – the longest and, perhaps, the most important battle of the Second World War, lasting 2,075 days. Canada was a principal participant and the country’s efforts were vital to Allied victory. Sunday’s event pays homage to the many members of the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN), Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) and the Canadian Merchant Navy who lost their lives between September 1939 and May 1945 while keeping the shipping lanes open linking North America with Europe. The year 2013 is considered the 70th anniversary of the battle because the allies gained control on the water in what’s known as “the turning of the tide” in 1943. The service of remembrance is approximately one hour.

At 1:40 p.m. a parade, led by the Zone G6 Colour Parties, will march along Bridge St. from the branch to the Almonte Old Town Hall (AOTH). Wreaths will be laid at the town’s cenotaph, which stands in close proximity to the building. Gathered veterans, Legion members, dignitaries and residents will then move to the edge of the Mississippi River, located on the other side of the AOTH, for the traditional bell ceremony. Members of Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corps 211 Lanark play a huge part in the moving ceremony, reading the names of the vessels lost during the Battle of the Atlantic. A bell rings for each of the 24 warships gone: HMCS Fraser, HMCS Bras d’Or, HMCS Margaree, HMCS Otter, HMCS Levis, HMCS Windflower, HMCS Spikenard, HMCS Racoon, HMCS Charlottetown, HMCS Ottawa, HMCS Louisburg, HMCS Weyburn, HMCS Saint Croix, HMCS Chedabucto, HMCS Athabaskan, HMCS Valleyfield, HMCS Regina, HMCS Alberni, HMCS Skeena, HMCS Shawinigan, HMCS Clayoquat, HMCS Trentonian, HMCS Guysborough and HMCS Esquimalt. It is also a time to remember the courage and

perseverance of Canadians, including Almonte’s Ed Winslow-Spragge, who served on the cold, grey and always dangerous waters of the Atlantic Ocean. More than 3,000 sailors and merchant seamen lost their lives delivering supplies across the ocean to Britain. Halifax served as the home base for the battle.

Almonte resident Ed WinslowSpragge served at sea, a Lieutenant on the RCN corvette, HMCS Amherst.

At the conclusion of the ceremony a reception follows at the Branch. In his memoirs, British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill said: “The Battle of the Atlantic was the dominating factor all through the war. Never for one moment could we forget that everything happening elsewhere, on land, at sea or in the air, depended ultimately on its outcome.”


LOCAL NEWS PROPOSAL From front page

neither owners have agreed to participate.â&#x20AC;? He told Thorbjornsson the town should not get involved in an agreement that involves private property without the consent of owners. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Firm up the participation of those properties,â&#x20AC;? said Knowles. The Allan St. project encompasses the construction of 36 condos (three 12-unit buildings). The condos would be valued at $350,000 each, and 36 units at this price equals a $12.6 million initiative. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There just isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t room on the property to build whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pictured,â&#x20AC;? said Knowles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You could design something else, but until we know what it is, how can we have a discussion about it?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The offer is to sell a piece of property for a greatly reduced price because we are getting a product, yet the product canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be built on the property,â&#x20AC;? he continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Again, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s premature until we get a concrete plan of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s viable. Then we can have an intelligent conversation of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s involved.â&#x20AC;? Knowles recommended council not accept the offer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great initiative, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exciting, and there are a lot of wonderful opportunities, but there is nothing firmed up yet,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a lot more work to do. We are just not there.â&#x20AC;? Thorbjornsson was told council would not accept the offer in its current form. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope you can resolve these outstanding issues, firm things up,â&#x20AC;? said Knowles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Come back with offers that would have something concrete.â&#x20AC;? In the meantime, the town remains

committed to promoting development in the downtown and encourages the DDG to resolve outstanding issues for the various proposed projects. The town will continue to explore development opportunities in the downtown and consider all offers for the municipal properties identified for sale. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You are shooting us down without giving us a chance,â&#x20AC;? said Thorbjornsson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is not a fair practice in my mind.â&#x20AC;? Although he called the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concerns valid, he asked for the chance to prove that he can do what he says he wants to do. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In turning the offer completely you are risking losing this opportunity,â&#x20AC;? said Thorbjornsson. He suggested council accept the offer or counter offer conditionally. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For me to go and tell my group that we must spend countless hours and dollars on designs in the hope that you will react to our the next offer, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think that is fair practice,â&#x20AC;? said the developer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were looking for participation from the town here, but we are obviously not getting it here tonight.â&#x20AC;? Mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s view â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the press release following the meeting of two weeks ago, the word â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;excitingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; was used to describe the plans presented to us by the syndicate,â&#x20AC;? said LeBlanc. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it was a very appropriate word because a project such as this could bring about significant changes to our downtown â&#x20AC;&#x201C; new buildings, more residential units, and rejuvenation of older buildings with a realistic result being the revitalization of the downtown core.â&#x20AC;? She called the project a dream of a project, but that it has flaws that cause

Connected to your community

her concern. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bringing dreams to reality is not easy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it takes planning, time, money, negotiation, commitment, and much more â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and I see these lacking in the proposals in front of us,â&#x20AC;? said LeBlanc. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were initially presented with a grand plan â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a dream â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that involved over the course of a number of years, 12 properties.â&#x20AC;? Contingent on these developments or redevelopments occurring was the town granting considerable concessions, including selling town lands at greatly reduced prices and the waiving of development charges and sewer and water charges to the tune of several million dollars. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the main selling points of this dream was the payback to the town in the form of taxes from these properties, along with the increased number of residents living in the downtown core,â&#x20AC;? said LeBlanc. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yet, over the course of the past few weeks, the number of properties included in the plan has significantly decreased as has the number of units. However, the concessions requested of council and the taxpayers of the town have not decreased.â&#x20AC;? Properties referred to by the mayor: â&#x20AC;˘ 101 Bridge St. (Olympia) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Structural/architectural analysis required to determine if residential units are feasible. â&#x20AC;˘ 124 Moore St. (SRC) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Purchase of private property required for proposed project. â&#x20AC;˘ Former Tim Hortons â&#x20AC;&#x201C; No longer included by developer. â&#x20AC;˘ Repaint Thirsty Moose â&#x20AC;&#x201C; No longer included by developer. â&#x20AC;˘ 210 Bridge St. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Developer expects town to sell property for $1. Property has been appraised for $390,000 and the

town has not agreed to sell for $1. â&#x20AC;˘ 215 Bridge St. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; This is a future plan. No details provided. â&#x20AC;˘ 84 Mill St. - This is a future plan. No details provided. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From the initial presentation of the project, I have been concerned that the foundations of the plan are weak â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with the viability of projects being contingent on another project being carried out,â&#x20AC;? said LeBlanc. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fact that the plan continues to be downsized makes me very uncomfortable and wondering at not only the financial solidarity of the syndicate, but also the commitment of its various members.â&#x20AC;? Although Thorbjornsson was unable to disclose the complete identity of the DDG, he was able to reveal the following people are involved: Coun. Louis Antonakos; Cheryl Batten; Richard Chmiel, Jeff Davis; Richard Deschamps; Jeff Jackson; Brent King; Mike Miller; Sean Roy; Angelo Seccaspina; Ralph Shaw; and Max Weinstein. LeBlanc presented the following eight points: â&#x20AC;˘ Why was/is one part of the plan contingent on another? All of the projects could be dealt with on an individual, stand-alone basis. Why was an all-or-nothing deal initially presented to council? â&#x20AC;˘ The plan to waive development charges in the downtown core to encourage redevelopment was a good one, but one that was not well-understood by council. A number of politicians thought the area covered was larger than what it in fact is. She suggested council review and amend the schedule of the Official Plan to include either the entire BIA district (or Mississippi District) as this is a

more logical boundary of the area. â&#x20AC;˘ Council previously discussed accepting lower land prices in the downtown core, but she is not in favour of bargain basement prices when there is a developer willing to pay full price. Some concessions can be justified on the basis of such items as the inclusion of other properties to enlarge the area or the fact that the town has decided that the developer will be involved in a test case for the revamped development permit system that may cost him time and money. She would extend the same principle to other interested buyers. â&#x20AC;˘ No one had yet pointed out the fact that two members of council who were opposed to the three-storey seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; building â&#x20AC;&#x201C; addition â&#x20AC;&#x201C; located on Laura St. because of the impact on the neighbourhood are now supporting three three-storey buildings in another residential area. What is the difference? â&#x20AC;˘ She is not impressed by the figures that state there will have a payback period of 12 years for the waiving of development charges and the decreased land prices, especially for the Allan St. property. â&#x20AC;˘ Any new buildings in the downtown core must be of such quality that they will stand the test of time both in materials and architecture. The concept plan for Beckwith St. includes the use of siding which is not reflective of the vision that council has created for this property. Council commented very favourably on the completely bricked apartment building on Franktown Road. â&#x20AC;˘ In a similar vein, she asked if the developer will also be the builder. If that is the case, what experience does he have See DDG A/CP20

There’s no place like home EMC Editorial - Senator Mike Duffy’s actions would lead one to question either his integrity or his intelligence. Maybe both. In the first possibility, he saw he did not meet the criteria for claiming housing expenses, but submitted them anyway, allegedly stealing about $90,000 of your tax money. Or, he misunderstood a simple question like “Where do you live?” and made a blunder - which he then tried to cover up. Forget for a second that, having admitted he made an error, Duffy, now sitting alongside fellow disgraced and former Tory Senators Patrick Brazeau and Pamela Wallin, has also essentially admitted that he does not meet residency require-

ments to sit in the senate. He does not live in the province he represents. Why is he still there? Let us assume for a second that Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s now former chief of staff, Nigel Wright, made an error in judgment – in making a “gift” of money to a sitting senator. Forget that $90,000 is chump change to someone like Wright - why, after the money changed hands, did Duffy suddenly stop cooperating with the audit? It’s frustrating to see a politician thinking he can literally pay off a problem to make it go away. When asked, repeatedly, by Global News if he had, or was going to pay back the money, back in April, Duffy repeatedly said, “I am a man

of my word.” But no answer to the question about whether he had, or would, pay the money back. Now we know why. Why is it so hard for this guy to answer such simple questions? The New Democrats are right why are the police not investigating? If you ripped off $90,000 from your office, either in error, or intentionally, what do you think the reaction of your boss would be? Would he or she like it if you suddenly clammed up and wouldn’t answer simple questions? The voters of Ireland will soon vote on whether to abolish their sen-

ate. And theirs is an elected one. For all the talk of senate reform, where is our vote on the upper chamber? We were glad to see Harper speaking out on this issue. He seemed mad, not the least of which was because it takes the Tories off message that Justin Trudeau is “in way over his head.” “Anyone who wishes to use and have public office for their own benefit should change their plans or better yet, leave this room,” said Harper on Tuesday to his caucus. For once, clear, concise condemnation. No spin, just bile like the rest of us. Thanks Mr. Harper.

Let Victoria Day reign EMC Editorial – Did you hear a group of high-flying Canadian actors, writers and politicians is calling on Prime Minister Stephen Harper to change the name of Victoria Day? Members include actors Peter Keleghan and Gordon Pinsent, author Margaret Atwood and Green Party leader Elizabeth May. An online petition located on the group’s website (www.victoriaandfirstpeoplesday. ca) calls on Harper to rename the federal public holiday to Victoria and First Peoples Day. “For centuries, Canadians, the First Nations, the Inuit, and the Metis have had a close affinity with the British Monarchy,” reads the petition. “Partners in trade, allies in war, friends in peace, and often relatives through marriage and descent – it is from this ancient and honourable relationship that Canada was created.” “The newly-named holiday would be an opportunity to commemorate that venerable relationship, to celebrate unique Indigenous cultures, to revisit our shared history, and to provide an opportunity for all Canadians to participate in the diverse and extraordinary heritage of our country,” it continues. Victoria Day marks the birthday of Queen Victoria and is celebrated every year on the last Monday before May 25. It also marks

the official birthday of Canada’s reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II. The Tara Firma holiday has been observed since before Canada was formed. Some people refer to the holiday as May Two-Four or the May Long Weekend, and it is regularly considered as the beginning of the summer season. I am a monarchist, but I also feel it is extremely important to honour the indigenous peoples of Canada. And sometimes, oh, sometimes change is good. However, are we going a bit overboard on this political correctness thing? Although it is not a federal public holiday, National Aboriginal Day is recognized each June 21. So, what side of the fence are you on? I totally respect people’s beliefs, but this is just not my thing. Too, if we want to honour the indigenous peoples of Canada, let us do it properly and not as an add-on. If we rename Victoria Day, is Christmas next? Nowadays, people already get so nervous about wishing someone a Merry Christmas that they wish everyone Happy Holidays or Happy Festive Season. I guess I’m saying let Victoria Day reign. Maybe we can rename Family Day? If you have any comments or questions for Tara Gesner, she can be reached by email at: tgesner@perfprint.ca.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Council should look before leaping into development deals Two developers have expressed interest in purchasing this land from the taxpayer. One has submitted an Expression of Interest at the full asking price of $250,000 (slightly above the appraised value of $245,000). This developer has not requested the town to waive any related fees, development or otherwise. The other developer offers only $50,000 and asks the town to waive all fees. The net difference in the two offers is a loss of over half a million dollars to the taxpayers of Carleton Place. This developer then makes a fur-

ther offer to buy town land near the old curling rink (Allen St.) under a similar arrangement. So now we’re up to a loss of over a million dollars. And he asks the town to waive fees on a variety of other properties he believes he can put together and the price tag jumps again. He says the taxpayer can expect a payback on this in the longer term. And he frames this as a magic bullet, an all versus nothing, pro versus anti-development decision for council. But this is a false proposition. This is not land that no one else is interested in developing: council already has an expression of inter-

est in on one of the properties; Carleton Place is growing; land values are increasing; and these properties are going to be developed. Council is not anti-development if it rejects offers below market value or refuses to subsidize a particular developer by waiving fees outside the area defined in its Official Plan. If council has used taxpayers’ money to buy land, then as good stewards, they have a duty to sell it at a professional estimate of fair market value. Ruth McNabb Carleton Place

Council needs to take closer look at code of conduct DEAR EDITOR: Since May 2012 I have been communicating with Town of Carleton Place staff and council members by email regarding the Carleton Place Code of Conduct – Bylaw 51-2009, Section 5, Sub-section 3: “The above policy does not preclude members of council from accepting viii) gifts of a nominal value that are received as an incident of protocol or social obligation including attending a sporting event that normally and reasonably accompany the responsibility of the office.”

Support Small Business

considering it states on wendyleblanc.ca (mayor Wendy LeBlanc’s website), under ‘Ethics and Trust’ that she would “introduce a bylaw that would create a public registry accessible on the town website for members of council and senior staff that would require the disclosure of any gift or service received over $200.” Personally, I think $200 in gifts is excessive; other levels of government do not allow any gifts of any kind from contractors they do business with. For six months I have attempted to engage the mayor on

ALMONTE CIVITAN CLUB

why a public gift registry is not in place and why she voted against one of her own election promises; to date all I have received is silence. In the Carleton Place code of conduct, it states that councillors will “act in a way that enhances public confidence in local government.” Based on my experience and recent Canadian Gazette EMC letters to the editor, they still have some work to do. Scott Dunlop Carleton Place

Although there were countless supporters of the benefit held on April 26th to which we are eternally grateful for, we would like to extend special thanks to The Carp Fair Board, Carp Fair Ground Committee, Carp Agricultural Society, Carp Agricultural Hall, Johnny Spinks and the Kool Water Band, and John O’Neill. Extra special thanks go out to Glen Byrne and David Creighton for all their work to make the benefit such a fun and successful evening. Al would also like to thank the Dunrobin Meat and Grocery for their announcement that proceeds from the Annual Golf Tournament would be directed to him. The past five months have been an extremely difficult time for Al and all his family, a time that we could not have endured without the tremendously generous and caring support of our community. We have always known that our community was a strong and closely knit family, but could never have imagined such strength or compassion. Al still has a long road ahead of him, but has been inspired through the strength and caring of our family, friends and community. It is Al’s hope to thank each of you personally over the summer, so don’t be surprised when that familiar voice is heard at the door, with his arm extended and his hand in that ever so familiar thumbs up position.

Small business provides jobs, tax revenues and many other contributions to our region.

My concern with this section of the bylaw relates to what is deemed to be “nominal value” and that there was no upper monetary limit associated with this. Furthermore, in accepting such a gift would contradict Sec. 1: a) of the bylaw that states, “the professional and personal conduct of members of council must be above reproach and avoid even the appearance of impropriety.” Last year Gary Strike brought forward a motion regarding a change to the wording of the bylaw, which was voted down by council. I found this to be very perplexing

Al and Sue Robertson (past owners of Country Towin’), along with the entire Robertson family would like to extend their sincere thanks to all who supported and/or attended the Benefit Dance in honour of Al. Unfortunately, Al was not able to attend as he had to be re-hospitalized just the day after his discharge, but was humbled and overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from his family, friends and community.

DEAR EDITOR: The May 9 issue of the Canadian Gazette EMC carried a front page story on a developer’s proposed downtown project. As a homeowner in the downtown area, I’m a great supporter of downtown development and I’m pleased that the mayor and council have shown themselves to be prodevelopment and committed to downtown re-vitalization. But let’s step back and take a closer look at the downtown options currently before council. Let’s look first at the town land next to Market Square.

ByTown Engineering to design McNeely extension, employment lands development By TARA GESNER tgesner@perfprint.ca

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Almonte-area Relay for Life teams congregated at the Civitan Club in Almonte on Saturday, May 18 for a collective yard sale event.

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Town of Carleton Place will engage Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ByTown Engineering to design the highway extension of McNeely Avenue and development of the employment lands on Highway 15. Council carried the recommendation by town staff at its regular meeting last Tuesday, May 14. The town received proposals from four bidders â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Counterpoint ($636,200), Novatech ($500,000), J.L. Richards ($557,550) and ByTown Engineering ($334,115). The County of Lanark is cost sharing on the project and will for that reason replicate Carleton Placeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contribution of $123,750 (to be recovered from developers) on the design to extend the McNeely Avenue and Highway 15 intersection. Moreover, Carleton Place will fund the design for the development of the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s employment lands at a cost of $84,615. Earlier this year the municipality entered into an agreement with the county for the southerly extension of McNeely Avenue to link Highway 7 and

Highway 15. The initiative will alleviate traffic congestion and promote further commercial and residential development. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is very significant for our community,â&#x20AC;? said mayor Wendy LeBlanc at the time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is initially opening upwards of 200 acres for more residential and more highway commercial development in that area.â&#x20AC;? The expansion will result in a multi-way intersection. The town will name the new east/west road Captain A. Roy Brown Boulevard. Brown is the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most famous resident, the First World War flying ace officially credited with shooting down German pilot Baron Manfred von Richthofen (the Red Baron) on April 21, 1918, in the skies over war-torn France. LeBlanc also noted when the intersection is brought into being it will allow the town to develop the 35 acres of employment land behind Suzuki Rivington Auto Sales. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This really is a very significant change in our economic development program and a big move into the future for Carleton Place,â&#x20AC;? she said. The County of Lanark endorsed the selection of ByTown Engineering.

Israel and Palestine talk May 27 and June 3 EMC Events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The IsraelPalestine conflict has been in the news for decades but how much of the issue do we really understand? Does anyone really understand the situation? In order to find some answers, or at least learn about the district, the Pakenham Pastoral Charge of the United Church is hosting two information evenings at St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in Pakenham and the public is welcome to attend. Next Monday evening, May 27, at 7:30 p.m., Rabbi

Dr. Reuven Balka will present his viewpoint on Israel. Rabbi Balka is a highly-respected spiritual leader in the Ottawa Jewish community and former co-president of the Canadian Jewish Congress. An accomplished author and sought-after speaker, he is also a regular contributor to the Ottawa Citizenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Ask the Religion Expertsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and a broadcaster who hosts a weekly program on CFRA. The following Monday, June 3, also at 7:30 p.m., Susan Palmai will speak on her

experiences as an Ecumenical Accompanier in Palestine. She has walked alongside those living in Palestine in their daily life, including crossing through checkpoints as they proceed through Israeli-controlled territory. Following the presentations there will be an opportunity to ask questions. Refreshments will be served after the talks. Do come and be informed. Submitted by the Pakenham Pastoral Charge.

May marks return of hummingbirds to area EMC Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; May flowers are blooming nicely by now. Do you have your hummingbird feeders cleaned and filled with syrup for our little dynamos of the bird world? Four parts water with one part sugar, and no red dye makes a perfect dining solution for the hummingbirds. They return by May 10. Friends report that if their hummingbird feeders are not out by then, these wee birds are right at the window asking for their food! With the hummingbird feeders in place, many who feed the birds take down, clean, and store the winter feeders until late fall. Beckwith Township, Mississippi Mills and Pakenham Ward, have all had Eastern Meadowlarks reported by readers from these areas. In Carleton Place, Mike Jaques came upon a flock of 100+ Bohemian Waxwings, April 22. These birds have moved

north by now. In Lanark Highlands on Concession 12, Claudia Smith spotted two Palm Warblers on April 26. She has noted several Yellowrumped Warblers at her place, and saw two Osprey that will likely nest there again. I missed mentioning that Jean Perkins observed two Osprey examining the nest site on a light standard, Country St., Almonte, April 19. On April 28, Georgina Doe was driving on Rosedale Road, Montague Township, and stopped to record a bird song. Listening to the Nuthatch program that

many of us have, she had recorded a Field Sparrow in full song. It was great to hear it. From Pakenham, Ray Holland left a message of having 11 Evening Grosbeaks, and a Black and White Warbler singing in his garden area, April 30. I drove up there later in the day, but missed seeing them. A Northern Cardinal was singing, lots of starlings and Redwinged Blackbirds flitted from tree to tree, and three Brown-headed Cowbirds fed by the road. Driving by the swamp on Cemetery Side Road, Georgina and I were hoping to spot a Pied-billed Grebe. No luck. I heard a Swamp Sparrow singing, but Georgina didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. She returned the next day and it sang. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget to contact Lynda Bennett at 613-256-5013, or email bennett@magma. ca with your bird reports.

Area politicians, including Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox and Addington Member of Parliament (MP) Scott Reid, Member of Provincial Parliament (MPP) Randy Hillier, Carleton-Mississippi Mills MP Gordon O’Connor and MPP Jack MacLaren, have been invited to participate in the walk-a-thon. “I am waiting to hear back from everyone,” said Lepine. The vision of PFoLC is of a movement of people who want all citizens to live equally in the community. The organization, founded by Peter Park, is about rights – human rights, citizenship rights, accommodation rights and language rights. Additional information about the walk-a-thon or PFoLC can be obtained by calling 613-2577111. Benefit dance PFoLC will host a benefit dance for a Carleton Place teenager suffering from Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). Earle and Sexsmith have teamed up to coordinate the event to help 15-year-old Clayton MacCallum and his family. The dance runs from 7 to 11 p.m. on Saturday, July 6 at the Army Navy & Air Force Club in Carleton Place. Admission is $10 per person. “All proceeds go directly to the family,” said Sexsmith, “and People First of Lanark County would like to thank the Army Navy & Air Force Club for once again donating its hall to us at no charge.” Festivities include musical entertainment (Cooper Street and Kirk Armstrong), door prizes (thanks to the Lanark County Therapeutic Riding Program), silent auction, food and much more. “We urge our community members to play an active role in supporting this teenager and his family, to help cover medical costs that fluctuate anywhere from $300 to $500 per month,” said Sexsmith. Information supplied to the Canadian Gazette by PFoLC stated: “CPRS is a chronic pain con-

Happy anniversary Lucky seven! Members of PFoLC will gather with staff, family, friends, community partners and others to celebrate its seventh anniversary on Sunday, July 21. “We will also ask the town to proclaim July 21 People First Day in Carleton Place,” said Lepine. Festivities run from 2 to 5 p.m. at the organization’s Moffatt St. headquarters. Activities include a barbecue, speeches, President’s Award presentation, cake cutting and much more. “The party is open to everyone (in the county),” said Earle. “Please, come out and enjoy a great time, and help us acknowledge the accomplishments of People First over the last seven years.” Some of those accomplishments include: Protecting Vulnerable People Against Picketing Act, inclusive education, annual Bunny Run and Community Christmas Dinner, community acceptance and partnerships (Community Living AssociationLanark County and Mills Community Support Corporation) and anti-bullying campaign. Setting a remarkable precedent for self-advocacy groups across the province is the reason Community Living Ontario presented PFoLC with its 2010 James Montgomerie Community Award. Montgomerie felt very strongly that people who have an intellectual disability and who live in institutions, residences for special care and nursing homes deserve a better quality of life. Four years ago, PFoLC established its prestigious President’s Award to honour a person, organization or business for their devoted commitment to the local chapter and its vision. Past winners include Tara Gesner, Kathy Seguin and Jerry Flynn. “This year we are introducing a special Community Award,” said Lepine. “We have several deserving individuals, businesses and organizations.”

EMC Events – Lead by example and participate in People First of Lanark County’s (PFoLC) upcoming walk-a-thon in Carleton Place. The march, now in its seventh year, is held in conjunction with the local Business Improvement Association’s (BIA) familyfriendly Lambs Down Park Festival on Saturday, June 15. Registration takes place at 9:30 a.m. at the historic Moore House on Bridge Street (across from the town hall). The walk begins at 10 a.m., following a few words from mayor Wendy LeBlanc, and ends a short time later on the grounds of Canadian Co-operative Wool Growers Limited, located at 142 Franktown Rd. Once again PFoLC will host a huge barbecue (until 4 p.m.), selling hot dogs, sausages and drinks. Other festivities include a 50/50 draw and prize raffle. “The local Canadian Tire has once again stepped up and donated a bicycle (valued over $100) for us to raffle off,” explained Manon Lepine, PFoLC’s new president. “We raised $2,400 last year,” said Kory Earle, former PFoLC leader and current People First of Ontario president. Proceeds from the walk-athon and barbecue help raise awareness and educate people about PFoLC, as well as provide support for the organization’s day-to-day operations and many community events. The advocacy organization – the voice for people who have been labelled – does not receive financial support from the provincial or federal governments. “All funds raised by People First stay in Lanark County,” stressed Earle. For a short time Earle is back at PFoLC to offer help and provide guidance. After nearly seven years of leadership, he bid farewell to the organization (Feb. 1) to spend more time with his family and take care of his health. “People First of Lanark County is going through a huge transition,” explained Earle, “and Manon and Diane (Sexsmith) are still learning.” Sexsmith is the organization’s executive director. “There wasn’t enough time (for training) before I left,” he said, “and so much is going on, in addition to the fundraising events.” The organization is actively pursuing new membership. “Kory has been a huge help to me,” said Lepine. “I am still learning.” Walk-a-thon pledge forms can be picked up at the PFoLC office, located on the property of the Free Methodist Church, 355 Moffatt St. in Carleton Place. There is a prize for the person who raises the most money in pledges. “One lucky person gets to choose the colour that I will dye my hair,” said Lepine with a laugh.

Fourth generation Among his biggest fans is Estabrooksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; son, Mike. The two are union members of the American Federation of Musicians, with the younger also a member of Souper Jazz, Dixieland band that has raised over $500,000 for soup kitchens in Ottawa. Mike is a fourth generation musician in the family, photos of his grandfather and great grandfather in their bands hang in the home studio. He grew up assuming every parent passed on the gift of music to their kids, but has since realized how fortunate he is. As he stands over a sousaphone (a giant brass instrument related to the tuba), a piece he is restoring by hand, he has praise for Estabrooks as a musician and a father. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My dad knows what heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doing. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why people are willing to drive from two hours away to be in the band,â&#x20AC;? Mike said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I used to take it for granted growing up. But now I know how lucky I am to grow up with music in my family. Too many people are missing out on how much music affects your life.â&#x20AC;?

Now Keith Estabrooks welcomes musicians to join his band. The Valley Concert Bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s optimal number of participants is 35. It has 31. The percussion section could use one or two more. A tenor sax player or two would be nice. Conductor Estabrooks a big reason why musicians are willing to travel from as far away as Orleans to practice under him â&#x20AC;&#x201C; isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t picky about who joins. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I refuse nobody. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for all instruments,â&#x20AC;? said the Woodlawn resident who recently did a show with Josh Groban. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good chance to come out and play. After high schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done is not the end of the world. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a place to play.â&#x20AC;? The band practices Thursday evenings at the legion in Arnprior. Ages are everywhere from 16 to folks in their 70s, and come from communities such as Almonte, Pakenham, Constance Bay, Ottawa, Renfrew and Pembroke. Unlike most community bands, there are no dues to join, but the band plays free concerts a few times a year for veterans, and has a series of concerts in April and May before breaking for summer. Many are at nursing homes and church halls in Renfrew County and Mississippi Mills. It also has recorded five albums under the baton of its current director of music. The Valley Concert Band has a library of some 900 musical scores worth some $90,000 collected since forming in 1987. Estabrooks often mixes contemporary and classic music, challenging the band but not reaching so far over their heads as to lose the quality during performances. It is the kind of knowledge the French horn player has gained over a lifetime in music. Before taking over the band in the mid 1990s when it was down to three members, Estabrooks was conductor of the RCMP Musical Ride Band playing for the rich and famous around the world. A large photo album shows him with boxing great Muhammad Ali, singer Crystal Gayle, folk legend Gordon Lightfoot, Bob McGrath who for many years was on Sesame Street, television actor Susan Saint James among others.

Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s backed up Anne Murray and the recently deceased Rita McNeil. He even played for Diana, Princess of Wales on the ill-fated Queen of the North before she died in a car accident and the boat sank off the B.C. coastline in 2006. He has travelled around the world playing music, from Venezuela to Italy, and northern Canada to Australia. He even toured with former prime minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Current Liberal leader) Justin Trudeau was just a child when we were in Mexico,â&#x20AC;? Estabrooks recalls, saying the RCMP band was great fun until it fell victim to budget cuts in 1993. However, he stayed on as an officer and was entrusted with guarding the U.S. ambassador for the duration of the two Gulf wars, along with standing on the front lines during the Oka crisis. A trained musician sauntering about with a machine gun? The transferable skills are few and far between.

Three UCDSB students named winners of UCTV Logo Design Contest EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Three students from across the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) have been named the winners of the UCTV Logo Design Contest, hosted by the UCDSB Communications and Relationship Management department. Almonte and District High School Grade 12 student Fenton Isaacs, Rideau District High School Grade 12 student Kyla Doornbos, and Thousand Islands Secondary School Grade 11 student Paige VanDrunen will receive a $100 gift card to the store of their choice, as well as a plaque recognizing their creativity and hard work. The contest, which ran from mid-January until

March 1, was open to students in grades 9 to 12. Their challenge was to come up with the look of UCTV, the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brand new online streaming channel. Although the initial contest rules stated there would be one overall winner, judges decided that there were aspects of each of the three logo designs that were crucial. These aspects will be incorporated into a final design which will be completed by a professional graphic designer. The final logo will be featured in an animation at the beginning of each UCTV broadcast, and potentially be used for future promotional materials. â&#x20AC;&#x153;UCTV is a live broadcasting channel for UCDSB students, so it only makes sense to have

our students design the look of it,â&#x20AC;? said David K. Thomas, director of education. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Students can then use their designs for their own portfolios.â&#x20AC;? VanDrunen participated in the logo contest because her communications technology class took it on as an assignment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just looked on the board website and Google,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From that, I just came up with my own idea. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not really an artist,â&#x20AC;? she laughed. Isaacs said he participated in the contest because he likes graphic design, and he thought it would be a fun challenge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like the fact that it would be used throughout the board,â&#x20AC;? he said. Isaacs said he came up with the concept after taking some time to brainstorm.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted it to be simple and clean,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I started with the TV, and then incorporated the text. I added the leaf after looking at the UCDSB logo.â&#x20AC;? Doornbos tried her hand at the contest after some encouragement from her mom and communications technology teacher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really like art,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So, I just wanted to try it and see what would happen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen a lot of logos online with the cartoon TV,â&#x20AC;? she added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I also watch TSN a lot, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how I came up with the idea to write a tagline.â&#x20AC;? Doornbos said that her father is a landscaper, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s asked her many times to draw designs for him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do a lot of art publicly â&#x20AC;&#x201C; this is really it!â&#x20AC;? she said.

Renwick and Associates undertakes Market Square roof project tgesner@perfprint.ca

EMC News – The construction of a roof over the concrete slab at the Market Square Pavilion in Carleton Place will make the area usable for a variety of functions, in addition to the Carleton Place Farmers’ Market. In a written report to council, Paul Knowles, the municipality’s chief administrative officer (CAO), noted five companies picked up tender documents for the Market Square roof project. Two balanced tenders were received and immediately opened following the closing date – April 22. Renwick and Associates bid $148,878 and the

price from Dalcon Enterprises was $217,000. In addition to the tender amount, Patterson Electric submitted a quote to complete the electrical/lighting plan, which was started (by them) in the first phase of the project. Carleton Place council, at its regular meeting last Tuesday, May 14, approved a staff recommendation to enter into a contract with Renwick and Associates at a cost of $148,878 as well as appoint Patterson Electric to complete the lighting/electrical work with LED lighting (under roof and soffits) at a cost of $14,300. LED lighting is more energy efficient, indicated the CAO, and bulbs have a far greater life. With a staff project management cost, es-

timated to be $3,300, the Market Square roof project will be in the region of $16,500 over the budget of $150,000. Funding will come from a variety of sources: town, local Business Improvement Association (BIA), Carleton Place Farmers’ Market and pub-

lic. What’s more, the Carleton Place and District Chamber of Commerce is pursuing funding ($30,000) from the Ontario Trillium Foundation for this project. Construction of the roof commenced recently.

in quality residential construction? • The April 21 offer made by DDG included many conditions but did not clearly define commitments. Yesterday (May 13) staff met with Thorbjornsson and suggested that he submit a simpler, more concrete offer for Beckwith St. but he wants a decision on the April 21 offer. This offer is found to be lacking in detail and therefore it is not responsible for council to deal with this until it is firm. “Paul mentioned resolve the issues, firms things up, come back to us with an offer and we can move forward in a prudent manner,” said the mayor. “We have the opportunity as a council to ensure that our legacy from any project is quality new building with quality residential units, an increased tax base, and, ultimately, a revitalized downtown. I am willing to stand behind any project that will meet these goals, but not at any cost.” “The proposal was never an all or nothing proposal,” added Thorbjornsson. “At no point did we make an all or nothing offer. We presented a proposal that we thought was viable for the revitalization for the downtown core. We still believe one or two buildings will not have enough impact to turn things around.” He said the DDG was actively pursuing all of the properties that were initially proposed. “We have been trying to work this into an offer, and we have been trying to simplify the offer as best as we can,” said Thorbjornsson. “We have now written three offers to council.” “We have been working with Paul Knowles,” he continued. “Every offer has been narrowed down so it’s easier for council to understand it. By narrowing down that legal document, details on the other projects that have been talked about have been put out of that document. That does not mean we are still not pursuing it.” The developer was disappointed council did not have a counter offer. “We were led on for the last couple of meetings that we were going through a negotiation with council,” Thorbjornsson. “I don’t see any negotiation here. I see us being thrown out and asked to come back at a later date with some other document. I don’t see how that can be fair. We are being asked to come back with detailed designs without even knowing what price point we are going to be dealing with or if we are even going to be accepted.” Thorbjornsson’s intentions were never to be the actual builder for all of the properties. “I would be involved in some of them, and I have no problem providing information about my work in

the past,” he told the mayor. “I have built custom homes up to $2 million. I don’t think there’s any question about my ability to build.” She stressed it was important for councillors to show that they are doing their due diligence. “We are disappointed about not getting a counter offer,” he responded. “I am walking out of here tonight without knowing where we (the DDG) stand with this town. You have put me in a position that makes it very hard for us to come back.” “We keep hearing group,” said Sonnenburg. “I only hear one person. I have no idea what the commitment is from the others.” He noted he simply wanted the same thing that any other business would ask for before they entered into a financial support relationship – business plan, project definition, defined group and financial background. “I have to look after all this town,” said Sonnenburg. “I am not going to give away tax dollars to see some-

thing happen without a comfortable, conscientious feeling that I am doing the right thing at the right time.” Coun. Rob Probert, who chaired the meeting, found it hard to follow the plan. “You are looking for pricing, yet circumstances change each week,” he said. “We owe it to the taxpayer to sell it (property) for the highest price possible or get fair market value,” said Coun. Gary Strike. “We should not be exempting fees unless the property is in the downtown area or brown field. The system must be fair to everyone – all developers, all players.” “I have waited my whole life for a vibrant, prosperous downtown,” said Coun. Doug Black. “You are the first entrepreneur to come to the Town of Carleton place with a vision. For that I thank you. I have a will to work with you and move forward on this. I have some flexibility, but I am just one vote.” “I don’t want you to be deterred,” he continued. “I understand you are,

but you have to have some sympathy for our requirement for due diligence on behalf of all taxpayers.” “This document can’t die,” said Coun. Jerry Flynn. “It’s too important to Carleton place. I support this.” Formal verbal offer In a last-ditch effort, Thorbjornsson presented a formal verbal offer. “I will give you $80,000 for your land, I will commit,” he said. “It is conditional that we obtain the land that is shown on my concept plan. I want the development fees waived and I want the water and sewer charges deferred. I am not asking for anything that hasn’t been done in this town.” “Deferring sewer and water charges is right in the bylaw,” said Knowles. “You don’t need to ask for that. It’s already there.” However, he explained exemption of development fees is not something council has the ability to make a decision on at this time.

“They have to follow the process, which they just agreed they are going to do and examine,” said Knowles. In regards to the property, Thorbjornsson was again told the town does not get involved in an agreement that involves private property without the consent of owners. “It’s improper for the municipality to initiate an offer on a property that is owned by a private individual without first securing that property,” said Knowles. Once again, Coun. Louis Antonakos declared a conflict of interest and did not participate in the meeting – as he has done during other discussions on the agenda item. One of the properties under consideration is next to one he owns. The results of the recorded vote were as follows: Black, LeBlanc, Probert, Sonnenburg and Strike voted yea. Flynn voted nay. “The door is open,” said Knowles. “The ball is in his court,” said Sonnenburg.

Ottawa Invaders making Beckwith Park home this season EMC Sports – One of Canada’s top football teams is making the Ottawa Valley its home. The Ottawa Invaders of the Northern Football Conference, ranked one of the top three semi-pro football teams in Canada over the past two seasons, has moved home games to Beckwith Township. The team’s regular season kicks off Saturday, June 1 at home against the Montreal Transit.

Other regular season home games will be against the Durham Hawkeyes June 15, the 2011 national champion TriCity Outlaws of Kitchener-Waterloo-Guelph on June 22, and the Sudbury Spartans July 20. “This is an exciting opportunity for us to put some roots down in the Ottawa Valley, which is the heart of football country in the capital region,” said Invaders’ head coach Wayne Jacobs. “We will be

bringing a high level of football out to where the fans are, rather than making everyone come downtown.” The Invaders played their first three seasons at Carleton University before moving out to Beckwith. The team has reached the NFC championship game in the past two years, falling short both times. This year, the Invaders have their sights set on an NFC Championship.

To make the move even more exciting, the NFC champion will host the 2013 Canadian Major Football League national championship. While the team is made up primarily of former CIS and junior football stars, some with pro experience, the team has

already made connections with the youth football community in West Carleton and the Ottawa Valley. Young players participating in the youth spring league will be playing minigames as the team’s halftime show for their first game, and the team is allowing all youth

players from the spring youth football program into it games free of charge when accompanied by an adult. Single game tickets will be $10 for adults. For more information on the Ottawa Invaders, visit www.ottawainvaders.ca.

Pickleball takes off at Carambeck Community Centre EMC Sports – Are you interested in giving pickleball a try? Head over to the Carambeck Community Centre on Thursday nights at 7 p.m. to try this fun and addictive sport! Pickleball can be described as a combination of tennis, badminton and table tennis. It is played indoors with similar equipment to table tennis, in a court with similar lines to badminton with a net height similar to tennis. What sets pickleball apart is that it can be played at any intensity level and is still equally as fun. All experience and ability levels can enjoy this activity, which has been proven in the U.S. due

to its rapid growth in popularity. Guy Chaput and members of the North Lanark Senior Games Association (NLSGA) are the main organizers of the Pickleball group on Thursday nights. “We have an incredibly keen group of individuals who are eager to grow the sport in Carleton Place, and are even willing to lend their equipment to do so,” says community programmer Jessica Smith. “I can’t think of a better opportunity to try something new; all you have to do is show up, grab a racquet and the group will teach you the basic skills and get you playing!”

The Carambeck Community Centre is currently home to the before and after school program, as well as an assortment of programs and activities offered on a monthly basis that encourage residents to get out and try something new. As interest begins to grow in pickleball, the organizers are discussing adding a second evening of playing to provide more opportunity to take part in this sport. For more information on pickleball, please contact Guy Chaput, president of the NLSGA at 613-253-2784 or Jessica Smith at 613-257-1704.

In addition, the contest winner will headline CBC Kids’ Days in Toronto this July. “We can’t thank our fans enough for putting us in the top 4 of the Kids’ CBC contest,” says Perth native Taes Leavitt who is the group’s ‘Boots’ to Nick Adams’ ‘Splash’. “This contest is such an amazing opportunity and we are so grateful to everyone who have supported us over all these years!” she went on to add.

Group of the Year at the 2012 SiriusXM Indie Awards. With six CDs and two full-length DVDs under their belts, as well as more than 1,000 international festival and theatre performances, there is no sign of slowing down for this breakthrough team. The duo recently released their sixth album which is written based on fan feedback. This past winter, fans helped Splash’N Boots write song titles, lyrics, and even the album name via their Facebook page (www.facebook.com/splashnboots). With a portion of all proceeds going to Sick Kids Hospital, this compilation has proved to be the ultimate fan/band collaboration. In addition to their music videos currently on heavy rotation on Treehouse TV, the duo performed in 11 cities last fall with Treehouse LIVE for the Roll Play Live Animal Party tour – based on Treehouse TV’s award-winning show Roll Play. Subsequently, the breakout pair landed an additional four music videos as well as four half-hour episodes of Roll Play that are slated to air on the popular children’s network. Splash’N Boots are constantly connected to their fans via social media channels. With a growing following on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, the two have a lot in store for 2013, including several more Kitchen Jam appearances at Sick Kids Hospital; an organization they continually support, recently donating $1000 after selling their first thousand copies of their ‘Back in Yellow’ CD.

ment. I had gone to school with Noel Hamer and he had a ’52 Mercury panel truck with a good V8 engine. He sold me the truck and we hauled out the engine and bolted it into the ‘48 Ford. It ran beautifully, and for the next few years the car was driven around our farm. At that time I didn’t have the inclination or talent to complete the restoration. I sold the car to my brother-in-law (at the time) Maurice Bois for $250. “Maurice put a set of dual exhausts on the car and painted it silver. It sat in his barn for quite a few years until he finally sold it. The present location of the car is unknown. It had no serial plate on the firewall. Its original

colour was dark gray. “The old shed where the car was stored in 1965 is still there and now houses a business called ‘Spoiled Sports.’ Each time I see a ’48 Ford coupe, I take a close look and always ask the owner about its history. I’m still hoping my first ‘cool’ car is still around.” 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 - Myno Van Dyke of Newcastle, Ontario, has been active in the old car hobby for nearly 50 years. He currently drives a ’58 Studebaker street rod, and every time he goes to a car show, he looks for a 1948 Ford coupe, wondering if he will find the one he bought (and later sold) 45 years ago. Here is his story: “It was July of 1967. I was 20 years old, working full time at Bell Telephone, and wanted an old car to fix up. More specifically, I wanted an old Ford, preferably a coupe. I heard about one near Courtice, Ontario, that had been left in an old farm drive shed. My friend Rick Dixon and I went to have a look. It was a very solid and essentially rustfree ’48 Ford coupe with a disassembled flathead V8 engine. “Apparently a previous tenant had moved away in the middle of the night without paying his rent. He left behind two old vehicles, a 1938 Chev 4-door sedan and the 1948 Ford coupe. There was no ownership paper for either car but I quickly struck a deal for $50 for the Ford. My friend, Al Parrott from nearby Myrtle, had an old trailer and he agreed to haul the coupe to our farm in Ashburn with his father’s ’50 Chev pickup. “It didn’t take long to realize the engine that came with the car was junk and in those days it wasn’t too hard to find a replace-

Star Trek fan or not, this film’s a must-see MOVIE: Star Trek: Into Darkness STARRING: Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, John, Cho, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, and Benedict Cumberbatch DIRECTOR: J.J. Abrams EMC Entertainment - There are films that are good. There are films that are great, and then there are those films that leave you with chills. Star Trek: Into Darkness is one of those films. A former Federation operative known as John Harrison (Benedict Cumerbatch) carries out an elaborate plan to destroy a Star Fleet archive in the middle of London. As a result Star Fleet’s top brass convene an emergency meeting to deal with the threat. Which was exactly what he wanted. With all of Star Fleet’s top officers in one place Harrison strikes. He manages to kill a number of officers including Captain Pike (Bruce Greenwood) before Kirk can stop him (Chris Pine). Harrison escapes, but it’s clear he intends to wage a one-man war on Star Fleet. Kirk vows to bring this murderer to justice, but to do that the crew of the Enterprise will have to chase Harrison to the Klingon home world, and risk intergalactic war. It’s a mission that will push Kirk, Spock (Zachery Quinto), Uhura (Zoe Saldna), Bones (Karl Urban), Sulu (John Cho), Scotty (Simon Pegg) and Chekov (Anton Yelchin) to their absolute limits. Especially when they begin to realize there are plots wrapped within plots. They’re venturing into murky waters with no map to guide them, and as the mystery unravels it becomes harder to know who their enemies are. Star Trek: Into Darkness is perfect. Every shot, every scene, every single little detail is absolutely perfect. J.J. Abrams has created the

kind of movie world and experience you can lose yourself in completely. The special effects, the sets, the CGI, the props, the costumes and all those little details have created the kind of movie you feel you could walk right into. Technically the film is flawless, but it doesn’t stop there. Into Darkness is intense, and exciting but with these perfectly timed moments of drama and humour. It pays homage to all those great stories that happened before, which will undoubtedly appease the hard core fans, but it stands on its own, meaning you don’t have to know anything about the Star Trek mythos to enjoy this film. It’s a brilliant piece of storytelling. In terms of performances this cast is unequaled. These are some of the most iconic roles in movie history. Most would have said the crew of the Enterprise is untouchable yet after the first film they proved that wrong. In this the second one they begin to make us think they might even be better. Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, John, Cho, Simon Pegg, and Anton Yelchin, are the crew of the Enterprise. As for the villain I won’t spoil it for anyone who still doesn’t know who it is. All I’ll say is that Benedict Cumberbatch is brilliant. Star Trek: Into Darkness is an absolute must-see film. Enough said. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

Kathleen Edwards and Iain Reid pack Studio Theatre EMC Entertainment – This past Mother’s Day (May 12), a sold-out audience at the Studio Theatre in Perth enjoyed a very special treat. The event was the launch of renowned author Iain Reid’s new non-fiction book ‘The Truth About Luck’, based on a delightful journey he took with his then 93-year-old grandmother. Reid read selected passages from his new work, and was joined on stage by world class musician Kathleen Edwards.

Ottawa-born Edwards, fresh from appearances on ‘Late Night with David Letterman’ and shows at the National Arts Centre, was short listed for the Polaris Music Prize, and received a Juno nomination in 2012 for her latest album ‘Voyageur’. Rolling Stone magazine declared her one of the year’s most promising new acts. As an added surprise, Juno Award winner Rose Cousins joined Edwards on stage to sing a few songs from her awardwinning album ‘We Have Made

A Spark’. Emcee for the afternoon was Amanda Putz, host of CBC Radio’s Bandwidth, as well as Robyn Bresnahan, host of Ottawa Morning, who sang a duet with Edwards, much to the delight of the multi-generational audience. A special thanks to Pascale from Kelly’s Flowers & Fine Things for arranging to bring this stellar Mother’s Day Concert to Perth’s Studio Theatre. Submitted by the Studio Theatre.

Based on a Protocol signed in 2004, these communities are working together to provide a unified approach to reach a settlement of the Algonquin land claim.

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The following is the first in a series of columns presented by the Algonquins of Ontario. The Algonquins of Ontario (AOO) have reached a historic point on our journey of survival, rebuilding and self-sufficiency â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a journey of reconciliation â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and one that includes reaching out and building relationships with our neighbours within our traditional territory. This journey began nearly 250 years ago when the first Algonquin Petition was submitted to the Crown in 1772. The Algonquins of Ontario claim includes an area of nine million acres within the watersheds of the Kichisippi (Ottawa River) and the Mattawa River in Ontario. Unlike most other First Nations, the AOO have never had a land surrender treaty with the Crown. There are currently more than 1.2 million people living and working within this unceded territory that covers most of eastern Ontario, including the Nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Capital. There are also 85 municipal jurisdictions fully or partially located within the Settlement Area, including

76 lower and single tier municipalities and 9 upper tier counties. Algonquins have lived in present-day Ontario for thousands of years before Europeans arrived. Today, the AOO are comprised of ten Algonquin communities. These include the Algonquins of PikwĂ kanagĂ n First Nation and the Algonquin communities of Antoine, Kijicho Manito Madaouskarini (Bancroft), Bonnechere, Greater Golden Lake, Mattawa/North Bay, Ottawa, Shabot Obaadjiwan (Sharbot Lake), Snimikobi (Ardoch) and Whitney and Area. The ten communities are represented by 16 Algonquin Negotiation Representatives (ANRs) who are elected by Algonquin Voters for threeyear terms. The ANRs include the Chief and Council of the Algonquins of PikwĂ kanagĂ n First Nation and one repre-
