Former CP financial planner stole $103,000 from dementia victim

EVENTS

Man has 34 months to pay back money to family as part of sentence By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

EMC News – Disgraced Carleton Place financial planner Robert Dickson has 34 months to come up with $74,500 or face the prospect of jail time. Dickson, 66, was back in court on Monday, May 27, having pleaded guilty to six fraud-related charges, for his sentencing hearing. Justice John Waugh of the Ontario Court of Justice in Perth placed Dickson under a conditional sentence of 20 months followed by 36 months probation for one count of fraud. He also imposed another three-year probation order on the count of falsifying documents. Waugh told Dickson, as he stood before him in court on Monday afternoon, that he was expected to pay back the family of the late Catherine Fraser, at a rate of $1,500 per month, under a restitution order, or face the prospect of being summoned back to court to face jail time. The money is payable to Fraser’s estate. Dickson is also not to have any contact with Fraser’s family, except through their respective legal counsel or at court. So far, Dickson has paid back

about $16,000 of the $103,000 he stole from Fraser from 1995 to 2010, when she died. For a portion of this time, Fraser was suffering from dementia. Crown attorney Kimberly Moore had originally requested that Dickson serve between six and 12 months in jail, followed by three months probation, though the judge did acquiesce to her request for a restitution order. Defence attorney Richard Knott had requested two years, less a day, of a conditional sentence, followed by three years probation. Dickson had been charged with theft over $5,000, forgery, uttering a forged document, fraud under $1,000, falsifying/ destroying books, and false accounts/deceiving. Dickson was approached for comments by this newspaper immediately after he left the court room for comment, but he declined the offer. Dickson had been scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 18, 2012, but after a morning of emotional victim impact statements, Waugh remanded the case to Dec. 19. About 90 minutes before that hearing was due to start, following consultations with both Crown and defence attorneys, the case was remanded to May 27.

Neighbours take aim at Pakenham firing range proposal By CHRIS MUST

EMC News – A proposal to build a firearms training facility in a rural area near Pakenham has drawn heavy fire from neighbours, who expressed fears at a public meeting May 21 that “tactical teams” complete with machine guns and helicopters might descend on the quiet pastoral region. The public meeting was host-

ed by the Town of Mississippi Mills in order to hear submissions concerning an application by landowner Jean-François Roy to rezone two hectares (five acres) of land, part of lots 8 and 9 on Concession 5 in Pakenham Ward. The application seeks a rezoning of the property from rural to commercial, to allow the facility to proceed. More than 100 residents of

the area crowded the council chamber to raise a wide range of questions and concerns, which remain unanswered to date. Councillors voted to accept a recommendation from town planner Stephen Stirling to defer the public meeting until more information is received from the applicant, after giving all members of the public who were present an opportunity to

comment. Town staff have also requested information from the Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority and the Ontario Provincial Police. Noting that a group of neighbours had met for several hours on two occasions to discuss the firearms training facility proposal, spokesman John Grierson gave a Powerpoint presentation which he said was intended to

summarize their objections in several categories, and invited a series of speakers to touch on each point. One problem faced by the neighbours, Grierson said, is that the project has been a “moving target,” leaving them unsure of whether plans call for an indoor or outdoor shooting range, or both.

Health unit focuses on prevention in 2013-2018 strategic plan objectives include healthy eating, maintaining good oral health and managing stress and positive mental health. “That’s what allows us to get through life,� Dr. Stewart said of the last point. Smiths Falls Coun. Lorraine Allen thanked the doctor for her leadership in moving this region towards a healthier future and congratulated her and the health unit on a strong strategic plan. “It looks great,� she said. Achieving these benchmarks will mean overcoming long established challenges such as restrained funding and a large geographic area where 60 per cent of the 165, 000 people served live in rural settings. Implementation of the plan and assessment of how successful the plan has been will be done through a new service

model put into place last July. Part of local needs and faces. this model includes splitting health unit To view the strategic plan, please go staff into local health teams who service online to www.healthunit.org and click a specific area and become familiar with on the link.

Hillier releases plan to put constituents first EMC News – Randy Hillier, MPP for Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox and Addington, has released a plan to reform the rules of Ontario’s Legislature to better allow MPPs to represent their constituents. Hillier’s plan, entitled ‘Constituents First: Empowering Local Legislators’, proposes a number of ideas to strengthen the power of legislators to better legislate and fight for their constituents in Ontario’s parliament.

Hillier’s ideas include allowing legislators to legislate by getting rid of the government’s monopoly on calling bills for third reading, restoring motions to relevance in the House and modernizing the Legislature by allowing e-petitions and the streaming of Committees of the House. The package includes the rationale for these ideas and the wording of the actual motions Hillier has tabled to do it.

EMC News – Local involvement in keeping residents healthy is at the heart of the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit’s approved 2013-2018 strategic plan. Dr. Paula Stewart, medical officer of health, encouraged all communities within the tri-county area to join the health unit through local initiatives and projects to keep area residents active and healthy longer. “Public health, fundamentally, is about the community,� Dr. Stewart added during a May 21 presentation to Smiths Falls council. “It’s all of us working together.� Municipalities can do this through changes to policy documents to encourage green space and facilities that encourage its residents to get out and be active. The doctor applauded Smiths Falls for its foresight in creating a walking track around the arena and completing a plan to link the trails throughout town. “All that good stuff is critical and it’s something only you can do,� Dr. Stewart said. The health unit board approved the strategic plan in February at which time presentations to individual municipalities began. Municipalities do provide 25 per cent of the health unit’s overall funding and figure largely in the plan’s efforts to reach out to community partners in the coming years. “What we’re all hoping for is to have healthy people in healthy communities,� Dr. Stewart said. To achieve this, the plan sets out four health goals the health unit is hoping to tackle in the next few years with a focus on tackling preventative elements before addressing the traditional public health focuses of substance abuse, tobacco use and sexual health. “We want to move the whole population to healthy behaviours,� the doctor said. This can be challenging for those outside of the high education levels who

may be struggling financially. To address this the health unit wants to first focus on infant, child and youth growth and development so that a strong foundation is established. Dr. Stewart said this can include supporting effective parenting; encouraging discreet breastfeeding in restaurants and installing change tables for parental access; and encouraging the establishment of self-esteem and other developmental assets as a way to reduce risky behaviour in the future. Once the cornerstones to health have been set the health unit hopes to build on it by promoting a healthy lifestyle that is part of resident’s every day. This is where municipalities can really help by providing regular outdoor opportunities for physical activity and play. Other

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Lanark County Support Services, like many of us this summer, will soon be decamping to the countryside. But unlike the rest of us, the agency will not be returning to Perth proper. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There certainly is a need for expansion in the Perth area, we have grown out of our current facility,â&#x20AC;? said Debi McEwen, director of the agency, in regards to their 62 Harvey St. location, at the groundbreaking in a field along Rideau Ferry Road on May 14. The location is nearly on the Perth-Drummond/North Elmsley Township border. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the accessibility part of it,â&#x20AC;? explained McEwen as another important reason for the move. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have 10 people that require accessibility.â&#x20AC;? These adults with developmental disabilities require, among other things, four accessible washrooms, something that the old location simply cannot provide. But it all comes at a cost, and the agency was finding itself with a construction shortfall of about $100,000 on this, their ninth building project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the fist time we have gone to the community,â&#x20AC;? said McEwen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not like we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the money. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just that it will tie up our money for 20 months if we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t (go to the community).â&#x20AC;? While they will miss their old location, which has been home for 32 years, the old site is now up for

services to our Perth residents,â&#x20AC;? said Bisonette. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a boon for the space, it is a good location close to town with room to grow,â&#x20AC;? agreed hospital board chair Lynda Hendriks. It is hoped that the back area of the property can be used for a community garden and within the building there will be an after-school program, a life skills program, and an activity centre for older adults. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We used the experience from the old place to build this place,â&#x20AC;? said McEwen. Overall, there is about 6,240 square feet of property, which, when the building is completed, will be designed to support about 25 people. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(But) we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stay here all day,â&#x20AC;? said McEwen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are out in the community. This is a base.â&#x20AC;? Another reason for the move was to ease the burden not only on the agency, but on families as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some people are being served in Smiths Falls because we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have room in Perth,â&#x20AC;? explained Leslie Walker, a supervisor at the Perth branch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are having to drive their children to Smiths Falls. That is a burden. There is a waiting list for people looking to access services.â&#x20AC;? For Walker, even seeing the shovel in the ground, and construction equipment at the ready, the full feeling has still not yet sunk in. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It still seems a little surreal,â&#x20AC;? said Walker. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve looked forward to it for so long. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll change a lot of peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lives, which is great.â&#x20AC;?

Disco saved my life: How Bee Gees rhythms can keep you â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Stayinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Aliveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Who knew that the Bee Gees could save your life? Love or hate their music, paramedics couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be happier for the disco kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s infectiously catchy 1978 hit â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Stayinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Alive,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; since the rhythm of the aptly-named song could, literally, help keep you alive. In the Lanark County council chambers last week, politicians from across the county gathered to get a demonstration on the revised CPR methods, and to practice the new, simpler techniques themselves. (Now, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s get the obvious joke out of the way â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with so many training dummies around, the council chambers saw more dummies than normal sitting around the table.) Paramedic Ed McPherson, who, in another life, is

also a Perth town councillor, couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t resist cracking a joke of his own as he beheld his demo dummy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a Maple Leafs fan,â&#x20AC;? he joked, before the more serious discussion and demonstration, part of Paramedic Week in Ontario, on Wednesday, May 23. In 2010, CPR training would instruct people to go down a long checklist, which, done properly, could take up to a minute. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once your heart stops, you have four minutes,â&#x20AC;? said McPherson. So, literally, every second counts. So, it was decided by the powers that be that the way CPR was taught be changed to, literally, get to the heart of the matter as quickly as possible. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to put CPR to music,â&#x20AC;? said McPherson. Briefly, once the patientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head has been elevated slight-

ly, and someone else has called 911, interlock your fingers, press down on the centre of the patientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chest with your palm 30 times, in time with the Bee Gees hit â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stayinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Alive/ Stayinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Alive/Unh-unh-unhunh/Stayinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Alive,â&#x20AC;? pushing hard and fast the whole time. Once you have done your 30 compressions, then do two breaths into the patient, though McPherson admitted that â&#x20AC;&#x153;nobody wants to do mouth-to-mouth with someone they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know.â&#x20AC;? Then, repeat as necessary, until the ambulance or fire crew arrives, or someone arrives with a nearby defibrillator. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all there is to CPR today,â&#x20AC;? said McPherson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all you have to do,â&#x20AC;? until help arrives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unless they open their eyes and look like they are alive, you keep pushing,â&#x20AC;? added McPherson.

SAFETY TIPS Heating and Cooking: Never use propane or charcoal barbecues indoors. They are designed for outdoor use only and can quickly cause a build-up of carbon monoxide.

Common-law couples â&#x20AC;&#x201C;some important ďŹ nancial planning advice Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening more and more, these days: Couples choosing to live together before, or instead of, getting married. But living commonlaw has its own unique set of financial consequences that need to be carefully considered. Here are a few tips for making the relationship work, financially. â&#x20AC;˘ Goal-set from the getgo You and your partner each have personal financial objectives, resources and obligations â&#x20AC;&#x201C; get them on the table in a frank discussion about how you are going to achieve those goals as a couple. That way, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll limit or prevent potentially painful financial consequences should your relationship one day end. â&#x20AC;˘ Live together, talk together Be clear about how much you expect to spend, save and invest. Discuss the management of your personal finances and determine who will pay which bills and how youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll share household expenditures. â&#x20AC;˘ Write it down Early on, see your lawyer and sign an agreement, commonly known as a cohabitation or common-law contract that sets out the terms of your financial relationship.

Manage Your Money â&#x20AC;˘ Will it to happen In some jurisdictions, upon your death, your common-law partner may have statutory rights to a division of â&#x20AC;&#x153;family propertyâ&#x20AC;? or to â&#x20AC;&#x153;dependantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reliefâ&#x20AC;?, and may also have rights under intestate succession rules if you die without a will. In those cases, you may want to include in your will provisions for children of a previous marriage/relationship. In other provinces, including QuĂŠbec, a common-law partner is not recognized as a legal heir â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so you may want to provide for your partner by signing a valid will. Given the continual changes in the law in this area, you need to speak with your legal and financial advisors regularly and keep your estate plan up to date. â&#x20AC;˘ Know the law Certain laws recognize common-law spouses. Seek information from your legal advisor on the impact these laws might have on your personal situation in your jurisdiction. Know too, that tax laws apply to common-law partners so be aware of the effect of

your relationship from a tax perspective. â&#x20AC;˘ RRSP it You and your partner can take advantage of income-splitting opportunities by contributing to your partnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spousal RRSP â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but be aware that the contributor may not be able to get these funds back should you separate (depending on your province or territory of residence). â&#x20AC;˘ Plan for it Get your relationship on solid financial ground that fits with your life plans by meeting with your professional legal and financial advisors as soon as possible.

SAFETY TIPS

EMC News – It’s anchors away for the Buck Lake Community to commence its ninth annual fundraiser to send children with physical disabilities to Easter Seals Camp Merrywood on Big Rideau Lake. This year’s event will take place on Saturday, June 29 on scenic Buck Lake and as in previous years, will consist of a Boatilla tour of the Lake followed by a community barbecue and cheque presentation to Easter Seals representatives at Hidden Valley Camp Grounds. This community event began nine years ago when a small group of Buck Lakers got together with the dream of providing children with physical disabilities the opportunity to partake in outdoor activities on Buck Lake. Together, they decided to hold a community fundraising boatilla and barbecue to help raise funds for Easter Seals to help send children with physical disabilities to Camp Merrywood. That first year in 2003, the Buck Lake community raised over $3,000 and sent one child to camp. Each year, the event became better known and more

members of the community have become involved. To date, after eight years, the Buck Lakers have raised over $86,000 and sent 43 children to Camp Merrywood. A founding principle of the Buck Lake community was that all monies raised by the Boatilla would be dedicated to sending children to Camp Merrywood. Due to their specialized care, it costs $2,000 for a child to attend the 10-day overnight Camp Merrywood program. One-hundred per cent of all funds generated have been donated to Easter Seals Ontario. Not one cent of funds raised over the years has been diverted to compensate for expenses associated with the Boatilla and barbecue. These expenses have been met by the kind contribution of goods and services from individuals, groups and community businesses which believe in this cause. For its small size, the Buck Lake Community has achieved impressive results both in terms of the number of children it has sponsored for Camp Merrywood and in building a sense of community awareness for a

great cause. The mission to send children to camp has grown to a passion for those involved and has resulted in ownership of the Boatilla by the Buck Lake community. For its dedication and generosity, the Buck Lake community received the 2011 Easter Seals Spirit of Giving Award, an award which recognizes associations who have unselfishly promoted the mission of Easter Seals by generating significant revenue and increasing awareness of the organization in the community. Over the years, the annual Boatilla has achieved positive results in building community relations within the environs of Buck Lake and this has been a significant benefit alongside meeting the needs of children with physical disabilities. The annual Buck Lake Boatilla has been built on a legacy of dedicated and successful community involvement to help send children to Camp Merrywood. The focus of the community and its supporting activities remains unchanged since its inception which is, “all about the kids!” Submitted by Easter Seals. THE EMC - 6 - Thursday, May 30, 2013

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

Column shows ‘narrow-minded’ view to environment DEAR EDITOR: Jeff Maguire’s column (May 23) on dandelions and the cosmetic pesticide ban points out how narrow-minded, short-sighted, and selfish people can be when considering the environment and human health. If he would look up from his lawn he might see that the numbers of birds are increasing also, because fewer are being killed by the effects of pesticides. Yes, I have no scientific evidence of that, just anecdotal observations, but Jeff’s entire column is based on anecdotal evidence also. My wife is a community nurse and she knows that cancer is rampant in our region. Again, no scientific evidence of what is causing it, but toxic chemicals are a leading candidate. We should

try to eliminate as many as possible whenever feasible. Jeff points out that the applicators of pesticides were wearing regular clothes. That’s the best evidence yet that the chemicals were not being applied properly or safely. If the professionals wouldn’t even follow directions, how could we expect ordinary citizens to take safety precautions? Along with seatbelt, smoking, and helmet legislation, the pesticide ban shows that sometimes issues are too close to people’s personal selfish concerns to be left to their own decisions.

COMMENTARY Stretch your paws for LAWS

EMC Editorial – For more than 35 years, the Lanark Animal Welfare Society (LAWS) has been caring for abused and abandoned animals. As their operations costs rise, they rely on donations from the community to keep their doors open as one of two no kill shelters in Ontario. A lot of those donations come in the form of various fundraising events throughout the Lanark County area, whether it’s pet photos with Santa, the organization’s annual yard sale or the upcoming Walk Your Paws for LAWs event Sunday, June 9 in Carleton Place. This is the second year for the fundraiser, which takes place at the Carleton Place arena from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., rain or shine. Participants are invited to bring their four-legged friends and enjoy a two or five-kilometre walk throughout town. Last year’s Walk Your Paws for LAWS raised $13,000 for the registered charity. Those funds, along with an influx of other monetary donations and materials, helped save the shelter from shutting its doors last year. With a small paid staff and board of directors, LAWS heavily relies on donations as funds to keep the shelter going come from adoption fees as well as fundraising activities. They receive very little government funding. While the generous outpouring of community support has kept LAWS on their feet through a trying winter, spring is here and the shelter will be dealing with more and more animals. As pet owners let their dogs and cats out to frolic in the warmer weather, they often forget about the importance of keeping their pets leashed as well as spayed and neutered. This summer, think twice about allowing your pet to venture outdoors if proper precautions haven’t been taken watch for LAWS fundraisers in your community.

Uncle Lou’s visits to the farm were much like Christmas EMC Lifestyle – Very important, was my Uncle Lou. Didn’t he just get an award for working on the marble in the Waldorf Astoria in the big city of New York? We even had a chip to prove it. Uncle Lou it was, who at least once a year descended on our farm out in Northcote to bring us unspeakable joy. My mother’s brother, one of the four who made up her family, had no children of his own when we were youngsters, and when he came it was like Christmas all over again. Although our Christmases back then were nothing to write home about! Uncle Lou often came without telling Mother in advance. She would much prefer if he would at least send us a letter that he was on his way. Then the house could be torn apart from top to bottom, so that everything shone like glass... our feather mattress taken off the bed upstairs, the felt one from Mother and Father’s bed hauled up to replace it, braided rugs beaten with the broom on the clothes line, and the red and white checked oilcloth on the table in the kitchen replaced with a white linen one Mother had brought to the farm. But when he came unannounced, al-

ways on a Saturday, we knew he was on his way before he hit the yard. He would start blowing the horn of his big black Buick when he turned into our long lane, and never let up until he came to a screeching halt at the back door. Mother had time only to change her apron, and smooth back her hair, and then she would cry. I could never understand if she was so happy why she would cry. My sister Audrey said it was from sheer joy! I thought he looked like he should be a member of parliament. He always wore grey flannel trousers, pressed knife-sharp, and flannel shirts open at the neck. Uncle Lou was tall, and as my sister Audrey once said, he even looks important! We five children never took our eyes off the back seat of the big Buick. We knew for a fact, that inside his big brown cowhide suitcases would be presents beyond belief. Always, there were yards of silk for Mother. And a new purse. Big. With gold clasps, and long handles. And we had no idea how he knew our sizes, but each of us would get a new piece of clothing, and everything always fit like it had been made for us!

Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

Uncle Lou would first stop at a grocery store in Renfrew, and there would be grapes and bananas, and real ham, not like we had in the smoke house, but big slices...thick...just right for sandwiches. It would take ages to unpack the Buick. When it had been emptied, the brothers would carry the cowhide suitcases up to the room my sister Audrey and I shared. Uncle Lou would take over the bed, and we would move down to the creton couch in the kitchen. Mother’s cheeks would be red as tomatoes, and Father, who could never understand what all the fuss was about, would treat Uncle Lou like any other visitor who came out to the farm in Northcote. That meant he would still slurp his tea out of his saucer, and sit with his feet on the oven door at night reading the OtNews Editors: Laurie Weir, Joe Morin, Ashley Kulp REPORTERS: Stacey Roy, Tara Gesner, Desmond Devoy, Tiffany Lepack, Sabine Gibbins DISTRIBUTION: Lori Sommerdyk, 613-284-0124 ,ext. 27 CLASSIFIEDS/REGIONAL ROUNDUP: Fax: 613-283-5909 Judy Michaelis Email: jmichaelis@perfprint.ca Lee Ann Gilligan Email: lgilligan@perfprint.ca Jennifer Coughlin Email: jcoughlin@perfprint.ca

tawa Farm Journal or the Family Herald and Weekly Star. As the evenings wore on, Mother and Uncle Lou would talk about New York and the many years Mother lived there. He would tell her about the changes... how the elevated trains went for miles and miles now, and how a place called the Bronx was the place to live. Mother would listen wide-eyed and ask questions, and the talk would go on and on. Uncle Lou had a wonderful singing voice. Without fail, every night Mother would get out her harmonica and he would sing as she played. Then she would set the mouth organ aside and they would sing in harmony...songs they both knew. My very favourite was one called, “I had a dream dear”...I thought it was very sad, but beautiful. Sometimes I would see a tear roll down Mother’s cheek when the song was over and I knew she would be remembering those happy years when she lived in the city she loved before she left for the backwoods of Renfrew County. Even though Uncle Lou helped Father around the farm, he never seemed to get a mark on those grey flannel pants and shirt.

off his shiny shoes, he buffed them with a cloth made especially for that purpose. He had wood forms he inserted into his shoes when he wasn’t wearing them. My sister Audrey said she was quite sure all-important men did the same thing with their shoes when they took them off at night. I couldn’t, for the life of me, ever see my father going to that trouble with the black-laced boots he wore to church on Sunday! Too soon it would be time for Uncle Lou to pack up and head back to New York City. Everett would swing wide the gate going out to the lane, and with the horn going full blast, Uncle Lou would spin the tires on the Buick and he was gone. There would be such a silence in the old log house, and I would wonder if it would ever be the same again. When it came time for our silent prayers each of us were expected to say before we left Mother’s knee, I would pray that Uncle Lou would return soon. It wasn’t only for the candy, picture shows and the rides in the big black Buick, it was because his visit would bring Mother unspeakable joy and release her from the bonds that held her prisoner on that farm • 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.

good forest management examples for private landowners.” “Some of the properties have been designated as being primarily for recreational use, especially because poor soil and abundant rock hinder uses such as timber harvesting,” says Jeff Ward, partnership specialist with the provincial Ministry of Natural Resources. “This wide range of habitat and landscapes makes the properties exceptional for recreational uses such as hiking, fishing and wildlife observation. There are three main management principles related to the county’s community forests: social, environmental and economic. The county strives to balance all three in order to manage the forests in a sustainable way. “Because social is one of the three main principles, we are developing opportunities for public use of the forests where appropriate,” Ward adds. “Trails are a good example of this. There are several trails on community forest properties where activities are encouraged.” The Baird Trail in Lanark Highlands offers three distinct loops that provide insight into the natural and cultural features of the property. It has boardwalks and interpretive signage is being installed in May as a way to enhance the experience. Plans are also underway to develop the Big Ben Equestrian Trail, which will provide a new recreational experience for the area. “Keeping the ‘community’ in the forests is important,” says Jonathan Allen, the county’s operations manager. “Our vision statement and guiding principles direct us to ensure the forests are man-

38

aged to accommodate a wide variety of values and uses, and recreation is an important part of this. Forest managers are working in conjunction with the Lanark County Municipal Trails Corporation and other groups to make sure natural values are protected while enhancing the social values.” “There are many recreational opportunities in the community forests that are aligned with the three main principles,” Anderson adds. “There are tourism opportunities, new trails and interpretive signage being put in place. We invite everyone to come out and explore what they have to offer.” Lanark County Tourism manager Marie White agrees there are many ways to experience all the community forests. “The opportunity to spend time in the outdoors is one of the many reasons people choose to visit Lanark County, and the community forests are a showcase for this. In addition to trails, some of which are multi-use, some of the properties have lakes within their boundaries, such as Dixon, Bottle and Caldwell lakes in the Lavant Block, which gives anglers an opportunity to try their luck or paddlers a chance to explore a waterway.” Baird Trail, she adds, is a showcase for community forests. “This 36-hectare property was sold to the county in 1963 so that it could be sustainably managed into the future. Now there are three loops through the gorgeous property that demonstrate the evolution of the land, including its farming heritage and its ecological values – the forests and wetlands and geological features.”

White encourages visitors to explore community forests as part of a trip to Lanark County. “If you’re coming to take advantage of a festival or a shopping getaway, take the time to get back to nature while you’re here,” she says. “There are some organized activities, too, with various nature and recreation groups conducting periodic forest walks, for example.” She notes healthy, active living and educational opportunities are an important part of life in Lanark County. “Our community forests are one of the ways we can encourage this. ‘Nature deficit’ in children and adults today is gaining a lot of attention, and here we have playgrounds right in our backyards that allow us to reconnect with nature. More and more school groups are taking ad-

vantage of the community forests as living outdoor classrooms,” she says. Take a walk, go birdwatching or fishing, observe wildlife, go for a picnic, take a self-guided tour or check Lanark County Tourism’s calendar of events for opportunities to go to a forest with a specific group. There are many opportunities to use these local treasures. Watch for more information about activities to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the community forests.

EMC News – As Lanark County’s Community Forests celebrate their 75th birthday in 2013, now is a great time to get out and explore what they have to offer. This year marks the 75th anniversary of the purchase of what is known as the Lavant Block in Lanark Highlands, which was the start of the county forest program. At first the forests were managed by the provincial Department of Lands and Forests, which eventually became the Ministry of Natural Resources. In 2001, MNR turned management responsibility over to the county. Today, Lanark County owns more than 4,600 hectares in 38 properties scattered throughout the county, mostly in Lanark Highlands. The woodlands, wetlands, streams, lakes, plants, animals, geology and heritage features are managed in a sustainable way to provide social, recreational, economic, scientific, cultural and spiritual benefits to everyone into the future. “The program was initiated as a way to rehabilitate agricultural properties that were being abandoned due to the difficulty of farming in such rocky, rugged conditions,” explains Brian Anderson, advisory services coordinator with Mississippi Valley Conservation, which provides professional forest-management services to the county. The county planted trees on the properties and managed the better natural forests that still existed on some of the lands. This rehabilitated the properties and provided plantation management as old fields were converted into forests for product and habitat, all while serving as

Council calls for better cell phone coverage in Lanark County

Seeking good citizenship nominations Council learned the provincial Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration is seeking nominations for its Ontario Medal for Good Citizenship. The medal was established in 1973 and honours Ontarians who have made outstanding contributions to community life through exceptional, long-term efforts. It is presented by the Lieutenant Governor at a special ceremony at Queen’s Park in the fall. Nominations should be submitted by July 17 at www.ontario.ca/honoursandawards or contact the secretariat at

1-877-832-8622. Committee evaluates economic development Council has accepted several recommendations from its economic development steering committee regarding service delivery in the county. A revised service delivery agreement with Valley Heartland Community Futures Development Corporation has been approved, with the steering committee indicating the county is getting great value for its tax dollars through this organization and the Small Business Advisory Centre, and that their services benefit all local municipalities in the county. The committee recommended the county consider joining various Ontario East Economic Development target sectors as a trial, including business immigration, food processing, investment tourism and logistics and warehousing. It also recommended the community development committee be renamed the economic development committee to more accurately reflect its areas of service delivery, including planning, tourism, trails, agriculture and forestry, which are all economic drivers in the county. Harvest festival planned The county is supporting and applying for funding for the Lanark County Harvest Festival, an outdoor celebration of local producers and their harvest. Planned for Sunday, Sept. 8, the event will feature food tasting, free samples, a meet-the-chef program,

children’s activities, local musicians, a food auction and crafts. The annual event will rotate around the county, and will be held at the Beckwith Recreation Complex this year. The festival is community-based and aims to support more than 55 local businesses and six farmers’ markets while promoting the development of sustainable, self-reliant communities in the county through small, sustainable food-based operations. It is also developing a new economic development network for the county through partnership with the Ontario Tourism Culinary Alliance. The festival is expected to create employment, build a customer base, encourage visitation, enhance the county’s profile as food destination and improve competitiveness for food producers through awareness. Mayor’s Slow Bike Race and golf tournament promoted Eight local council representatives congregated at the county administration building prior to the regular council meeting to compete in the third annual Lanark County Mayor’s Slow Bicycle Race as part of Mississippi Mills Bicycle Month. The idea is to hop on a bike and “race” to be the slowest mayor – something that requires great balance! Mississippi Mills Bicycle Month is a month-long celebration of bicycle-related activities to promote cycling for healthy, family fun. Warden Bill Dobson (Montague reeve) congratulated Lanark Highlands deputy mayor Brian Stewart for win-

ning the race and thanked everyone for their participation. He also promoted the annual Warden’s Golf Tournament, to be held on Aug. 16 at the Perth Golf Course. Proceeds will go to the United Way of Lanark County. “I hope everyone can step up and raise even more money than last year,” Dobson said, adding sponsorship opportunities are still available. Upcoming meetings

County council takes place Wednesday, June 26 at 7 p.m.; community development is June 5 at 5 p.m.; and public works is June 5 (following community development). The meeting of the community services committee is June 19 at 5 p.m. and corporate services is June 19 (following community services). For more information, contact 1-888-9-LANARK, ext. 1501.

The Rideau Lakes Horticultural Society (RLHS) has organized a tour of the gardens with owner Paul Loiselle on Wednesday, June 5 at 2 p.m. The hour-long tour will take you through the extensive grounds featuring hundreds of plants – everything from Acanthus to Zauschneria (aka Orange Carpet).

Non-member admission to this tour is $5, but you may want to take advantage of this occasion to join up, since annual membership is only $15.

EMC News – The following are the highlights from the regular Lanark County council meeting held Wednesday, May 22 at the county building in Perth. Council passed a motion asking Bell Canada to make improvements to cell phone coverage in order to help the county meet the needs of current and future citizens and businesses. The motion notes the county is often identified as one of the best places to live for people seeking the conveniences of urban living and the quality of life found in rural settings. Although there have been improvements over the past few years, cell phone coverage remains an issue and a priority for the county. The county will be identifying gaps and recommend locations for tower sites. The resolution was circulated to local municipalities, MPs and MPPs.

The treatment and prevention of diabetes is constantly evolving.

EMC News – On Thursday, May 9, Mahogany Salon and Spa in Carleton Place hosted 40 nurses from the Perth & Smiths Falls District Hospital (39 women and one man), above, for what was a surprise evening to celebrate Nurses Appreciation Week. Most of the nurses had not been to the new spa in Carleton Place and enjoyed being treated to a fun-filled evening of pedicures and manicures. R0012100586_0530

Fourth annual Perth Kilt Run set for June 22 EMC News – The fourth annual Lanark Mutual Insurance Perth Kilt Run is set for June 22 at 6 p.m. and promises to be another fantastic event with over 2,000 runners registered for this world record setting experience. With pipers in hand, Walker’s shortbread bakers testing their recipes, Doornekamp Wee Lads and Lassies race, a Perth, Australia challenge in the making and non-profits gearing up to shout and bang along the route, there will be lots to see and do for the entire family. Would you like to be up-close to these wannabe Scottish folks by helping distribute water and cheer at the same time? An important element of the Perth Running Goats Club is its commitment to the community. This is demonstrated through its annual Cheering Station Awards, a $2,400 fund used to honour the community for their support of the biggest kilt run in the world, the Perth Kilt Run, A Lanark Mutual 5 Miler. Non-profit groups are encouraged to form a team of at least 15 people, don their kilts, bring out the

noise makers, do a little Highland step, hand out water and cheer those lads, lassies and warriors on! Every entry automatically receives $100, while the first place choice for most Scottish, the most enthusiastic and the best water distributer will receive $1,100. Second place receives $600 and third place receives $300. “We have a panel of judges that run by each cheering station and rate each station; 2012 saw Drummond Central School take top dollar,” said Mary Stewart of the Running Goat. “Over the years we have had the Perth Curling Club, Perth Civitan, Montessori School, Harvey St. Gang, Northgate Christian Youth Group, Running Goat Ladies for Crohns Disease.” A lot of people don’t realize the positive impact on runners as they see the enthusiasm and excitement of the spectators. Perth has been truly exceptional in this regard, with six cheering stations located one kilometer apart. It makes a great impression on all the runners and over and over again we hear from seasoned runner hear how this is “the best race they

have ever run in.” To register your community group please contact Kim Spence at 613264-2946 or drop into The

Running Goat on Foster Street in Perth and pick up a form. Submitted by the Running Goat.

Connected to your community

Are you gearing up for Bike to Work Week June 2 to 8? EMC News – The Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit is working with the Brockville Cycling Advisory Committee to promote cycling and physical activity. June 2 to June 9 has been designated as the Bike to Work Week for Leeds, Grenville and Lanark this year. During this week, several workplaces and individuals are participating by cycling to work and blogging about their experiences. A Facebook page has been launched for people (called ‘Bike 2 Work Week June 2-8, 2013’) to post photos of themselves “gearing up” or riding to work, to get tips and ideas about biking to work, to blog about their experiences or to challenge other colleagues. A Bike Health Check will be held on Saturday, May 25 at the health unit (458 Laurier Blvd,

Brockville) from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Bike mechanics will be available to check bikes, along with a bike helmet check station and a fun bike rodeo for the children. We are well aware of the benefits of physical activity for our mental and emotional health. Being outside in nature has also been found to help to reduce stress, anxiety and depression, and to increase concentration and problem solving. Having staff ride their bikes to and from work can help them be more productive, healthy and happy. A good way to have more people biking to work would be to “try it out”. Bike to Work Week is the perfect opportunity to test drive this idea.

It was golf, golf and more golf at Mapleview Golf Course on Saturday, May 25, during Big Brothers Big Sisters Lanark Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (BBBS) annual fundraising golf tournament. One-hundred and forty-four golfers took to the greens to raise more than $13,000 for BBBS, all with the chance to win $10,000 in cash from Crain & Schooley Insurance and other assorted prizes. Above right, these four gents braved cooler temperatures and a brisk wind for the tournament. From left to right: Mac Waddell, Geoffrey Conley, Bob Klatt, and Armand Thompson. Above, Tay Valley Township reeve, Keith Kerr, was more than willing to help raise funds for a good cause. Kerr is a regular participant in the BBBS fundraising tournament.

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 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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 local forum is coming up Mon-

REGIONAL NEWS

Connected to your community

Canadian Foodgrains Bank celebrates 30th anniversary this year EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; April 13 marked the 30th anniversary of the founding of Canadian Foodgrains Bank. Throughout this year, we wish to celebrate and thank the many people and organizations that have created, built and supported the foodgrains bank over the years â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the early visionaries, the

practical people that worked out the mechanics, the many farmers across the country that caught the vision, the Mennonite Central Committee that established the initial food bank and then invited other churches to join, the 15 Canadian churches and church-based agencies that now belong.

We also want to recognize the hundreds of partner organizations around the world that implement programs, in often difficult circumstances; the growing number of church congregations, both rural and urban, that are participating; the many individuals that generously donate cash; the business community

that supports growing projects and facilitate grain donations and other efforts; and the Canadian International Development Agency that has supported the foodgrains bank from the beginning. We are thankful that significant progress has been made in reducing the prevalence of hunger around the world

Sunday Night Country Music Show June 9 honours late DJ and promoter the Country Harvest Show he promotes will mark its fifth anniversary in the arena hall. This past Feb. 9 the Carleton Place Arena Staff Association, of which White is a member, sponsored a Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dance at the facility. More recently, on May 25, the association hosted an appearance by the popular 1950s and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;60s rock band Eddy and the Stingrays which drew a large crowd. All proceeds from both activities went to the Carleton Place Arena Fund which is in place to raise money needed to make long-term improvements to the complex. The arena, officially called the Carleton Place and District Community Centre, is arguably the main focal point for activities in the growing town. Country favourites This time around White is asking local and area people to â&#x20AC;&#x153;come out and enjoy an evening of oldtime country music favourites. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of the best country entertainers in eastern Ontario live in and around Carleton Place.â&#x20AC;? He says the presentation will be a throwback to the Sunday â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Radio Showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; organized by Scott. It was staged in the Carleton Place Town Hall Auditorium and at Perth and District Collegiate Institute Auditorium over the course of several years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Scoon did many shows and they were excellent. He even had impersonators who honoured country stars like (the late) Buck Owens and Minnie Pearl,â&#x20AC;? White said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The show on June 9 will offer a mix of oldtime and current country favourites. With Andy involved Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure there will be some yodeling (Bowes is renowned for his ability to yodel) and there will probably be a couple of Gospel songs too,â&#x20AC;? White outlines. He says Chenier has one of the strongest and best voices he has ever heard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I heard George sing during the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame inductions last year. He was excellent.â&#x20AC;? Foster, who also performs in the fall show and headlined the February Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dance, has a good reputation and has gained a strong following. Besides his signature fiddle playing Foster is also an accomplished guitarist and singer. White adds that Brown and Thibault both entertain regularly at local and area venues and are much appreciated by audiences.

The House Band will be comprised of Bowes (bass guitar), Foster (fiddle), Brad Scott from Pakenham on lead guitar, Mark

Lemieux of Almonte on the drums along with steel guitar wizard Brian Ostrom. Bowesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; brother and fellow band mate John will

handle the sound. leton Place who, with The beneficiary of the Whiteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assistance as proJune 9 venture will be the moter, is sponsoring the St. James Anglican Church See SHOW page 33 Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Council of Car-

EMC Entertainment â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The late Dale â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Scoonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Scott was a relentless promoter of area musicians, athletes and worthy causes. His Sunday night â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Radio Showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; became familiar to residents of Carleton Place and Perth over the years. Scott lost a seven-year battle with brain cancer five years ago (June 2008) at the tender age of 42. Carleton Place lost its hardest working and most prominent volunteer! Scottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Toons by Scoonâ&#x20AC;? disc jockey service was a fixture in the community. A Carleton Place Citizen of the Year (2003), Scott promoted and supported virtually everything that happened in the town including musical events, festivals and sports with an emphasis on junior hockey and high school football. The diminutive and enthusiastic young man will never be forgotten! Now his friend and fellow music promoter Bob White has decided to dedicate an upcoming country music show to Scottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s memory. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say it on the posters. But this is for him â&#x20AC;&#x201C; this is for Scoon. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tribute to the great country music scene we have in Lanark County. But he started the Sunday night music shows and five years later they are still just as popular,â&#x20AC;? White outlines. What is being billed as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Sunday Night Country Music Showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; will be staged in the main, upper hall of the Carleton Place arena complex on Neelin Street Sunday, June 9 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15 each. The evening will feature the music of five wellknown local and regional country music entertainers. Headlining the presentation are Andy Bowes, a member of the popular Carleton Place family band the Bowes Brothers; singer George Chenier Sr., fiddler Wade Foster and local favourites Dave Brown and Darlene Thibault. The five-member house band including Bowes and Foster are certain to appeal to country music fans. The master of ceremonies will be well-known area personality Charlie Kitts of Almonte, a 2010 inductee into the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame. White, who in his day job is senior facilities operator at the arena (he works for the Carleton Place Department of Recreation and Culture), is well known for running numerous fundraising activities in the community, especially country music shows.

Awards to celebrate dairy industry achievements EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A new Dairy Farm Award of Distinction will be presented annually at Dairy Farmers of Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (DFO) annual meeting to a dairy farm that has been recognized for achieving high milk quality standards, and showing industry leadership through volunteering or supporting the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dairy industry organizations. This is one of four awards that make up DFOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new Awards of Distinction program.

show. The womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s group is aiding the cause by providing pies and baked goods. Scott once worked as a caretaker at St. James and he assisted the ladies of the church with their activities during his tenure. White says they are solidly behind the upcoming tribute to Scott. He also explains that emcee Kitts will conduct â&#x20AC;&#x153;a pie auction during intermissionâ&#x20AC;? to raise additional funds for the

provincial awards program will recognize the contribution and service of Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dairy industry stakeholders. The Bulk Tank Milk Grader (BTMG) Award will be presented annually to the BTMG who provides excellent customer service to Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dairy producers and processors. The Processor Innovation Award will be presented to a processor who was demonstrated innovation and helped enhance the dairy industry. This innovation could be a new processing facility; an extensively updated processing facility; improved milk receiving facilities; launch of a new product; or launch of a new packaging format.

The Dairy Industry Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented to an individual who has shown significant leadership and has helped advance the Ontario dairy industry. The nominee must have provided service or been engaged in business in Ontario and must have made a significant contribution to the dairy industry (i.e. producer, processor, academia, etc.). Nominations for all awards will be accepted beginning in January 2014, with the first set of awards to be presented at DFOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual meeting in January 2015, commemorating DFOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 50th anniversary.

White stresses that the upcoming show is â&#x20AC;&#x153;a non-alcohol event â&#x20AC;&#x201C; there will be no bar. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But there will be homemade pie and squares, coffee and tea available at intermission. The ladies will probably be selling some baked goods too that you can take home for the following week,â&#x20AC;? the chief organizer states. White offers special thanks to Ken Ferguson of Ferguson Graphics in Carleton Place who donated the promotional

materials for the country music night.

in 1952 changed Victoria Day to the Monday prior to May 24. Then, in 1957, May 24 was further designated to be the Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s official birthday in Canada even though in Britain Queen Elizabethâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s birthday is officially marked in June. Her actual birth date is April 21. I will leave you to figure it all out! Yes, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s confusing In truth it was not an innovation to celebrate the birthday of the reigning king or queen on the birthday of their predecessor. That happened for years. Who knows what will happen in Canada following the passing of the present queen who is 87 and in the 61st year of her long reign? Yes, all of this Victoria Day stuff is very confusing! So, imagine what will happen if a group of prominent petitioners get their way? On May 19, the day before Victoria Day 2013, news broke that a group of actors, writers and politicians wants the Canadian government to change the name of Victoria Day to honour Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s First Nations communities as well as the late monarch. The petitioners, including writer Margaret Atwood, singer Susan Aglukark, actor Gordon Pinsent and Green Party leader Elizabeth May, wants the name changed to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Victoria and First Peoples Dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. In an on-line statement and in a petition sent to Prime Minister Stephen Harper, the group argues that such a change would continue to honour Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s historic relationship with the British monarchy but would also acknowledge the role of Aboriginal peoples in the evolution of the country. Proponents say such a change would highlight native history and help put a spotlight on issues that have plagued Aboriginal communities. Problems such as discrimination, land treaty disputes, poverty and unemployment. The person who is spearheading the initiative, actor Peter Keleghan, says Victoria Day has gone from having historical significance to being known as little more than the â&#x20AC;&#x153;May Two-Fourâ&#x20AC;? long weekend. There has been very little media coverage surrounding this proposal and I doubt it is very high on the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s radar. They have many other serious issues to contend with at present. However some traditionalists have reacted to the suggestion. Keleghanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s characterization of a May Two-Four weekend doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sit well with some. They point out that Victoria Day not only honours Queen Victoria, a personage of substantial significance to Canada, but that it is also the current Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s official birthday in Canada. Queen Victoria, by the way, is the person who, in 1857, chose Ottawa to be Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital city. So she certainly made a major impression on our part of Ontario. My opinion is that combining

Reflections

Victoria Day with a day to celebrate Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s First Nations does a disservice to both and will not achieve the intended purpose. Why should Victoria Day and the Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s official birthday be changed? Or more to the point perhaps, why shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t this countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aboriginal peoples have a holiday of their own which could be shared by all of their fellow Canadians? That seems a much better idea to me!

R0012124116/0530

EMC Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; It seems that some individual or group is always coming up with ideas for new or â&#x20AC;&#x153;improvedâ&#x20AC;? national, provincial or regional holidays. Besides all of the usual religious observances which are marked globally â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Christmas and Easter remain very prominent dates on the Christian calendar â&#x20AC;&#x201C; there are holidays of one kind or another in every country around the world. On the religious side there are also Jewish, Muslim and Eastern Orthodox holidays which are marked by large numbers of people. Worldwide the holiday list is lengthy! There are just five national, statutory (compulsory) holidays in Canada. They are New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day (Jan. 1), Good Friday (the Friday before Easter Sunday), Canada Day (July 1), Labour Day (first Monday in September) and Christmas Day (Dec. 25). Federally regulated employees also get Easter Monday, Victoria Day, Boxing Day (Dec. 26), Thanksgiving and Boxing Day off. Canada remains a relatively young nation and therefore we havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t caught up with some countries when it comes to the number of holidays celebrated throughout the year. Along the way most Canadians are off work on the first Monday in August although it is a statutory holiday in just three provinces and two territories. Relatively recently Ontario jumped on the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Family Dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bandwagon. We are now one of three Canadian provinces which have a statutory Family Day holiday on the third Monday in February. British Columbia marks the same holiday on the second Monday of February. In Manitoba the third Monday in February is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Louis Riel Dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; while in Prince Edward Island it is designated â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Islander Dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. So you see the Canadian â&#x20AC;&#x153;holiday mapâ&#x20AC;? alone is varied and somewhat confusing. I could give you lots of other examples. We have just marked Victoria Day which, for 168 years, has been held to celebrate the birthday of Queen Victoria the influential queen of Great Britain and the British Empire (now the Commonwealth). She continues to hold the record as the longest serving monarch in British history. Victoria Day is now held on the Monday before May 24 which was the queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s birthday. She died in 1901 at the age of 81 following 63 years and seven months on the throne. Her reign gave rise to the term â&#x20AC;&#x153;Victorian Eraâ&#x20AC;? which remains prominent in British history as a lengthy period of peace and prosperity. Oddly Canada is the most consistent country in the British Commonwealth when it comes to marking Queen Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s birthday. There is no such day in her birthplace England. May 24 was designated as a holiday by the Legislature of what was then the British province of Canada in 1845. Following the queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death the Canadian Parliament established May 24 as a national holiday, unless it fell on a Sunday in which case May 25 would serve as the holiday.

rail line blockages spring to mind) there is obviously plenty of room for promoting peace and understanding in Canada. Perhaps a holiday to honour First Nations people would be a positive step in that direction? Of course it can be argued that Keleghanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s point about â&#x20AC;&#x153;Two-Fourâ&#x20AC;? long weekend holidays could be applied to every special occasion we have each year. Because the reality is that with the exception of Canada Day, very few of us focus on what the holiday in question is really about. Most people just want another day off!

Leave it up to Aboriginal Canadians to select a suitable day and make it an annual, national statutory holiday. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine there would be much, if any, complaint about that? And why should a First Nations celebration have to share the spotlight with another long-established special occasion? Ontarians at least are always complaining about not having enough official holidays. In June for example there are no holidays in Canada with the exception of Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day (St. John the Baptist Day) on June 24 which is only marked in the province of Quebec. Given native protests and the often negative public reaction to them (the Idle No More movement and

Origin of walk In coming up with the concept of the Victor Walk, whose namesake is a frog (which can look left and right, but never backward and only forward), Fleury said some of his best conversations have been out on the open road. “I thought, ‘Let’s walk from somewhere to somewhere and see what happens,” he said during an interview with the Canadian Gazette. “And it has truly been a lifechanging experience for all of us on the walk.” He admitted the journey from Toronto to Ottawa and often walking alone on the highways became somewhat of a “vision quest.” “It’s a struggle: walking and being with your own thoughts,” Fleury remarked, stating that the route was chosen in order to get the “biggest bang for our buck.” “Starting in Toronto, the media centre of Canada, was a good thing for our cause,” he said. “I think it was good to have social media as well. We have been tweeting and posting on Facebook where we’ve been and it’s getting out to people.” Adding to the struggle was the fact he didn’t train before embarking on his journey.

Harley said he was attending the public meeting to hear the neighboursâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; concerns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not only do we have to understand, we have to be understood as well,â&#x20AC;? he added.

been told that the proposed facility would be operated in conjunction with Millbrook Canada, a Stittsville-based organization which offers tactical training for military and law enforcement personnel. Tactical training, suggested neighbor Mark Richardson, might include the use of pyrotechnics and automatic weapons, which, he said, would â&#x20AC;&#x153;forever destroy our idyllic part of the world.â&#x20AC;? Dr. Paul Smith, an environmental consultant, said the project should not be allowed to proceed because the property is designated as significant wetlands and may be home to several endangered species, such as the Blandingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s turtle and butternut tree. To allow development there would contravene provincial policy, he said. Another neighbor, Wayne Griese, said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m close enough to be worried about noise.â&#x20AC;? He said the site is close to a number of rural businesses, including Cedar Hill Christmas Tree Farm and Fultonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pancake House,

and â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want the noise in our backyard.â&#x20AC;? Local residents also raised concerns about potential fire hazards and negative impact on property values. Real estate agent Mike Richards said military training facilities, such as the JTF2 facility in Dwyer Hill, drive down adjacent property values. Shirley Fulton-Deugo, owner of Fultonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pancake House and Sugar Bush, noted that here business has been operating for five generations â&#x20AC;&#x201C; over 170 years â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and currently attracts 20,000 to 30,000 visitors annually. She said these visitors are seeking â&#x20AC;&#x153;quiet serenityâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;would not consider gunfire noise as adding to their experience.â&#x20AC;? Paul Ralph of Cedar Hill Christmas Tree Farm said neighbours are also concerned that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the present proposal is but the thin end of the wedge.â&#x20AC;? If the facility is allowed to proceed, he said, it would be bound to expand in the future.

Municipality and Carleton Place Canoe Club enter into partnership tgesner@perfprint.ca

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A longlasting partnership between the Town of Carleton Place and Carleton Place Canoe Club (CPCC) has become even stronger, thanks to a new agreement between the two parties. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great for both sides, a win-win situation,â&#x20AC;? said Bonnie Mosher, CPCC commodore. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are looking at this as a positive thing.â&#x20AC;? Mosher took over the role of commodore after being voted in at the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual general meeting last December. Previously, she was the director of events. The agreement, which was signed earlier this year, sees the town assume an active role in the facilityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

maintenance and operations. This permits the CPCC to focus its efforts on canoeing programs. The building has always belonged to the town. It is leased by the CPCC, which is the oldest continually operating club in Canada, having been established in 1893. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The agreement we are operating under has changed significantly,â&#x20AC;? said treasurer Phil Hogan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to pay a little more rent,â&#x20AC;? said Mosher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The lease is going from $1 per year to $10,000.â&#x20AC;? Under the terms of the old, $1 agreement the canoe club was the property manager and they were responsible for looking after all the bookings, cleaning and maintenance, and they paid

all bills related to the facility â&#x20AC;&#x201C; utilities, maintenance and more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This agreement moves them out of the property manager roll to that of being a tenant of the property where the town will administer the facility and pay all the bills (except telephone),â&#x20AC;? said Hogan. For this reason, the monthly rent is now $833. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The agreement is for one year,â&#x20AC;? said Mosher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can revert back.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Council and staff were pleased that we were able to come to an agreement with the Carleton Place Canoe Club that is beneficial to both groups,â&#x20AC;? said mayor Wendy LeBlanc. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The town will now maintain and rent out this town-owned facility and the canoe club staff and

volunteers can focus their energy and expertise on the programs they offer to the community.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted this for a long time,â&#x20AC;? said Mosher, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and with so many big things coming up for the club, this needed to be done.â&#x20AC;? Former commodore, Greg Aitken, got the ball rolling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to thank him for his commitment to the club and for getting this going,â&#x20AC;? said Mosher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He spent two years on the board and did a wonderful job.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;There has been several attempts over the years and much time devoted to finding a suitable agreement and development of a true partnership between the Town of Carleton Place and the canoe club,â&#x20AC;? said Coun.

Jerry Flynn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This time, with the formula that was worked out by staff and the right people sitting at the table, a deal was struck that is fair and workable for both. A win for both parties.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Again, this partnership is very beneficial to the club and town,â&#x20AC;? said Mosher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The club can use its fundraising dollars for programs and equipment versus building upkeep, which can be very expensive.â&#x20AC;? All rental revenue from the facility goes back to the town. The main hall has seating capacity slightly over 200 and is used throughout the year for one-time rentals such as wedding receptions and more, as well as multitime rentals. Mosher said the club would look after the trophy

room, weight room and entire downstairs (boat bays, change rooms, paddle storage and repair bay). Involved in the sport of canoe/kayak for over 20 years, Ryan Blair assumed the role of CPCC head coach in 2009. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ryan is thrilled with the new partnership,â&#x20AC;? said Mosher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s looking forward to

EMC Events – Historic Moore House (above) in downtown Carleton Place was one of the venues for the sixth annual Wine’d Around Downtown held Saturday afternoon, May 25. People jammed the premises wearing the distinctive purple T-shirts that marked this year’s wine and food tasting extravaganza. A total of nine venues were involved and the venture was a complete sellout with 350 people taking part. Top right: Members of the ‘Carleton Place Wine Tour Team’ strike a pose during their stop at Ballygiblin’s Restaurant and Pub on Bridge Street Saturday afternoon, May 25. The “team approach” was the brainchild of Laura Hebert (front centre) who is shown here with her husband Michel (sunglasses) and their friends. More than a dozen couples and individuals comprised the wine team.

Mississippi Mills council forwards river project concerns to province By CHRIS MUST

EMC News – In unanimously approving a resolution calling on the province not to allow the Enerdu hydroelectric project to proceed without resolving five key issues, Town of Mississippi Mills councillors achieved a rare unanimity May 21. “It’s the first time we’ve had a unanimous vote on a controversial issue,” Coun. Shaun McLaughlin told a crowd of over 100 members of the public who filled the council chamber and overflowed into the hallway. “You’re witnessing history.” The resolution, commented Coun. Duncan Abbott, was intended to summarize the questions and concerns councilors have been bombarded with for several months regarding the proposed development on the Mississippi River in Almonte. “This is a summary of the things that have been presented to us,” said Abbott. “We are hearing your concerns and we’re passing them along.” Having agreed to forward these concerns to Premier Kathleen Wynne and various other provincial officials, Abbott advised that, “Everybody step away from this and take the summer off.” Abbott suggested the controversy surrounding the project might actually impact tourism by making the issue seem “bigger than it is” to outsiders. In 2011, Enerdu Power Sys-

tems Inc. announced plans to expand and redevelop its existing hydroelectric generating station in Almonte. The proposed expansion involves construction of a new dam and powerhouse to increase the capacity of the generating station from 300 kilowatts to approximately one megawatt. The project , which required a full environmental assessment that was completed in December, would be connected to the provincial power grid. Council’s resolution states that “several significant issues remain unresolved and there is great concern in the community over this controversial project.” Most recently, a grassroots group known as the Mississippi RiverWatchers hosted a town hallstyle meeting in April opposing the project which attracted several hundred people. The first of five issues identified in the resolution is the potential impact of the project on water levels in the river. Critics of the proposal have suggested that it would alter the natural flow of the river and increase the risk of spring flooding. Specifically, the resolution asks the province to re-evaluate the operating water levels permitted in the Mississippi River Water Management Plan. Secondly, the resolution asks that the province not approve the project until hydraulic modeling is carried out to determine poten-

tial flood risk, noting that a major flood did occur in 1998. Thirdly, the resolution questioned whether the scale of the project is appropriate. Enerdu claims the project is an expansion of existing infrastructure, but “It entails construction of an entirely new power house at a different location, and replacement of the existing dam and weir with an entirely new dam and weir.” The resolution also calls on the province to “determine if water management of the existing plant and the proposed plant fits the definition of run-of-river.” Lastly, council asked the province to evaluate the project’s potential impact on natural and heritage assets in downtown Almonte, “and the resulting degradation of the community’s character.” Council has received complaints that a new powerhouse, dam and weir could “compromise” the appearance of the community. The project requires the approval of the Ministry of Natural Resources to proceed. Abbott said that although “we’re not the governing body,” council felt it was important to voice the concerns of Almonte residents – concerns which, he said, have been “dismissed” so far. “Council hasn’t got any information on this at all,” added Coun. Garry Dalgity. “I need information, and at this time we’re

not getting any.” Other councilors stressed that their intention was not to stop the project but only to ensure that specific issues were being addressed. “We’re asking that the government assure us that all this happens,” said Coun. Alex

in support of the project so long as it meets all requirements. The existing weir is “ready to fail,” he said. A new dam is required in any case, he added, and hoped that the new dam would serve the community for the next 150 years.

The need for our food bank has continued since the late 1980s and the number of clients we help is always increasing. The use of food banks is fairly wide spread across Canada and not unique to our region. The key to the Lanark County Food Bank’s success over the past 25 years has been the direct result of the tremendous assistance received from our volunteers, donors and supporters. Without the contribution of these stalwart community members we would be unable to provide our current level of service. Regular food donations from our many local businesses, farmers and individuals provide a significant portion of the food we are

THE TOWNSHIP OF LANARK HIGHLANDS

able to supply to our clients. Financial donations ensure we are able to pay our part time manager, rent, utilities, transportation, other operational expenses and the purchase of food items not normally donated (e.g., eggs, meat, potatoes). We encourage our sponsors, the public and local representatives to meet with the board of directors and volunteers during our open house on June 9 as we mark 25 years of service in Carleton Place and surrounding communities. You will have the opportunity for a tour of our site and to see firsthand how the food bank serves the community. We hope to see you there. Submitted by the Lanark County Food Bank.

EMC Events – This year marks the 25th year that the Lanark County Food Bank has provided service to the community. In order to acknowledge this milestone we will be hosting an open house on Sunday, June 9 from 1 to 3 p.m. at 5 Allan St., Carleton Place. We started operation in October 1988 when a group of concerned Carleton Place residents recognized the problems created by the recession of the 1980s. The food bank began its operations from the living room of one of the volunteers and with the growth in demand, the food bank moved to a store front on Bridge St. Later, we moved to a new location on Franktown Road, which was occupied until 1997, before moving to the current location on Allen St. The food bank’s catchment area includes the communities of Franktown, Carleton Place, Mississippi Mills (Almonte and former Pakenham and Ramsey Townships), Innisville, Ashton and White Lake. The Lanark County Food Bank is a non-denominational, non-political organization sustained solely by private donations. It does not receive support from any level of government. The food bank is operated by a volunteer board of directors, a paid part time manager and approximately 30 dedicated volunteers who provide front line service to our clients. We currently provide 12 hours of support weekly, distributed over Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings as well as Wednesday evening. The food bank also supports the Almonte area with the help of the Hub which offers distribution space once a week for clients without transportation. The Lanark County Food Bank is a registered non-profit charitable organization and a member of the Ontario Association of Food Banks. The mission of the Lanark County Food Bank is the provision of safe and nutritional food assistance to persons in need. Our goal is to supplement our client’s food requirements on a monthly basis and a typical order includes sufficient food for three or four days. The amount of food is dependent upon the number of family members. The number of people that we help has

Rob Ford’s truth trouble EMC News - The ongoing drama surrounding Toronto Mayor Rob Ford makes for a great soap opera, but is it any of our darn business? Even if we can prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, that that is indeed Ford inhaling crack cocaine through a glass pipe, what of it? Legally, we’re not sure what the Toronto police can do, if anything, if it can be proven that it is him. There are only three credible people on Earth who have seen the video - two Toronto Star reporters and an American reporter from the Gawker website. We’ll assume that the n’er-dowell duo who showed the reporters the video have clearly seen it - and therein lies the problem. Toronto’s Deputy Mayor Doug Holyday summed it up well in Maclean’s magazine when he said, “I wouldn’t want to, I guess, have my career or credibility resting on the words of drug dealers.” One of Ford’s opponents from the last election alleged earlier this year that he groped her at a recent political event and she charged that he was on drugs. Her proof? A Google search of cocaine use symptoms. On the weekend, The Globe and Mail charged

that Ford’s brother, now a councillor, was an alleged hashish dealer in the 1980s. But as even that paper admitted, Doug Ford was never charged with anything. Police officers who patrolled that area even said that they do not recall brother Ford being involved in the drug trade. Now, some of this we’ve seen before from Rob Ford. He denied that he had been charged with posession of marijuana in Florida in 1999 but when confronted with clear proof he admitted that, oh, yeah, it was him after all. The National Post reported this week that while mayor Ford has claimed on his CFRB Radio show that there is no video, the mayor’s staff has told Toronto police that there is indeed a video - and they even know where it is located. If this is so, then this is concerning. He can’t deny it, and then order staff to try to suppress something that he says publicly doesn’t exist. But how many times can a man say that he didn’t do anything? No amount of denials will satisfy his critics. His silence may be his best defence. Does Rob Ford have some personal demons to work through? Likely. Is it any of our business?

Most of it is not. It is a stretch to say that this is in the public interest unless it starts to affect how he runs city hall. He’s still going to meetings, trying to stop the gravy train that has run unhindered there for too long. Even one of Ford’s biggest critics, Coun. Adam Vaughan, a former TV reporter, gave backhanded support to Ford in the same Maclean’s piece. “He’s a bad mayor because he makes bad decisions,” said Vaughan. “This has nothing to do with the latest allegations.” Journalists can be like a dog with a bone, and

we believe that the Toronto Star’s two reporters believe that they have got the goods. Let’s let them do their work, and let Ford do his. But we do believe that the media has a double standard when it comes to covering the outspoken mayor. Look at the free ride they gave the late federal NDP leader Jack Layton in 2011 when allegations about his visit to an erotic massage parlour 15 years earlier surfaced. Imagine the media’s reaction if it had been Ford who had paid a masseuse a visit? Like it or not, he’s one of us, and deserves some privacy and to be allowed to do his job.

Carleton Place and District Horticultural Society celebrates 25 years to gardening. The president is Paul Pietsch. There was a horticultural society in Carleton Place many years ago; however, a lot of the group’s particulars are unknown. It flourished until the Second World War, which is when it was disbanded. In 1988 the impetus to form a new horticultural society came when a few friends with an interest in gardening got together and started talking. The first project of the CPDHS was the transformation of the hard-packed cinder and derelict playground of the former Victoria School (now the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum) into a lovely oasis. The Victoria School Gardens are designed, planted and maintained by society members who donate perennials from their own gardens. The CPDHS awards two bursaries per year: one to Carleton Place High School and another to Notre Dame Catholic High School. “The schools select the recipients – students going into horticulture or a related program,” explained Larmour. Owing to an excellent partnership with the town, CPDHS members help arrange the Christmas planter baskets

EMC News – The year 1988 was good – and so will be the party 25 years later to celebrate the anniversary of the Carleton Place and District Horticultural Society (CPDHS). The group will host a potluck supper on Wednesday, June 5 at 6 p.m., at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church Hall. In attendance will be founding and current members: Hugh Hopkins, Ruth Larmour, Debby Lytle, Lucille Shaver, Shirley Sheinfield and Anne Tokaruk. “Hugh is the only one who is no longer a member of the society,” said Larmour, a member of the 25th anniversary committee and responsible for the group’s communication. All founding members will be presented with either a corsage or boutonniere. Festivities include speeches, door prizes, a raffle and more, and Barb Miche, a member of the Perth Horticultural Society, will speak about African Violets. “It is a real social time,” said Larmour. The current membership of the CPDHS is in the region of 50, and both women and men participate. “It is a great group,” said Larmour. “Everyone is so friendly.” She described them as a team of dedicated gardeners – some expert, some novice and some entirely new

and boxes that beautify the Bridge Street bridge and town lampposts. At the society’s potluck supper and annual general meeting in December awards are handed out and members elect a new board executive. “We hold eight meetings a year,” said Larmour. “There are interesting and knowledgeable speakers as well as door and raffle prizes, and coffee and refreshments are complimentary.” Other activities include a yearbook, newsletters, workshops, mini flower shows and yearly plant sale. The cost of a single membership is $10 and $15 for a family. A special bonus, CPDHS members receive a discount at Gemmell’s Nursery, Rock Wall Gardens and Reid Landscaping. The CPDHS is affiliated with Lanark County Master Gardeners and is a member of Ontario Horticultural Association District 2. Larmour said new members are always welcome. St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church is located at 39 Bridge St. Please enter the hall on Beckwith St. For additional information, contact Larmour at 613-257-4101 or ruth_ larmour@sympatico.ca, or visit www.cphorticulture.ca.

Carleton Place treasurer explains hydro reserve withdrawals tgesner@perfprint.ca

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; At last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (May 21) corporate services committee meeting in Carleton Place, treasurer Phil Hogan presented a summary of withdrawals from the municipalityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tax Rate Stabilization Reserve (Hydro Reserve). â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was time (13 years),â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and with the different councils, questions often come up.â&#x20AC;? The reserve was created in 2000 from the sale of Carleton Place Hydro to Hydro One. Hogan said the utility sold for $5 million. To ensure there was a solid record of where the money was being spent, the council of the day asked that a bylaw be created each time funds were removed.

Earlier this year, council authorized the use of $105,000 to finance one-third of the cost of constructing an entrance from Roy Brown Park onto Highway 7, at the site of the new Mississippi Valley Conservation Centre. The price tag is estimated to be $313,250. Other withdrawals over the last 13 years: â&#x20AC;˘ $208,365 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; McNeely Avenue to Highway 15 and Doyle property â&#x20AC;˘ $1,176,779 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Land purchases (Roy Brown Park, works yard, snow dump, Lollyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) â&#x20AC;˘ $1,071,295 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; ISF project (Trail and Bridge St.) â&#x20AC;˘ $1,016,264 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Road construction (12 years) â&#x20AC;˘ $753,576 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Townline Road â&#x20AC;˘ $460,379 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Water Treatment Plant â&#x20AC;˘ $273,000 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Hospital ($50,000 per

year for a number of years for equipment, emergency department, etc.) â&#x20AC;˘ $249,254 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Moore House â&#x20AC;˘ $94,981 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Miscellaneous (Riverside Jam, boat launch, litigation associated with Carleton Place Hydro, etc.) â&#x20AC;˘ $84,890 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Highway 7 servicing â&#x20AC;˘ $81,124 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Bridge St. parking lot â&#x20AC;˘ $75,000 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Downtown revitalization

equally by the federal and provincial governments, in addition to the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s share. Road rehabilitation was undertaken from the central bridge on Bridge St. to the town limits, at a cost of $2.2 million. Moreover, on behalf of itself and Carleton Place, Beckwith Township applied to the fund in early 2009 for a joint walking/biking trail. News came months later (in August) that the application was successful â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in the amount of just over $1.44 million. After the two levels of government provided two-thirds funding, the two neighbouring municipalities were left to cover the remaining amount. Beckwithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contribution was $442,000 and Carleton Place put in $1 million. The current balance of the Tax Rate Stabilization Reserve (hydro reserve) is $1.79 million. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the town has been extreme-

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve spent $5.6 million,â&#x20AC;? said Hogan. He added the town has earned a fair bit of interest on the reserve over the years. Local resident Jim Collins asked for an explanation regarding the two ISF projects. Hogan explained the Infrastructure Stimulus Fund projects were made possible by way of financing provided

ly prudent with the use of these funds over the years,â&#x20AC;? said Hogan. He noted council has committed $1.7 million to the local hospital (redevelopment) project, which will come from the fund. Replacement Council discussed the possibility of topping up the Tax Rate Stabilization Reserve (hydro reserve). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because some of the projects financed by way of the reserve deal with water and sewer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Townline Road, Highway 7 Servicing and Water Treatment Plant â&#x20AC;&#x201C; there is some rationale to replenish,â&#x20AC;? said Hogan.

SAFETY TIPS Smoke Alarms: Test your smoke alarms. If a fire starts in your home while you are asleep, you want to know about it immediately. Some homes are equipped with electrically connected smoke alarms that may not work when the power is out. Make sure your home has a batteryoperated smoke alarm on every level.

EMC Lifestyle - Travel season is finally upon us and for many that means towing a trailer of some type. Here are a few tips on keeping you, your passengers, your vehicle, and your trailer safe and sound. Know your limits – While you can buy a trailer hitch for just about any vehicle on the market, not all vehicles are rated to tow a trailer and those that are, have limits. Check your auto’s owner’s manual to find out what you can safely tow. Many carmakers have reduced the trailer ratings over the last few years as lighter body and chassis components combined with smaller engines and lighter transmission have been introduced to improve fuel economy ratings. If your vehicle is a relatively new compact or subcompact, it most likely won’t be rated to tow any type of trailer. If you show up at your dealership’s service department for a warranty repair with a trailer hitch bolted to the rear, you may run into difficulty if any failure can be related to trailer towing. For those vehicles and trucks that are rated to tow, don’t assume you can increase their capacity with a few suspension or engine/ transmission cooling modifications. Even the beefiest suspension mods won’t increase an axle’s capability of supporting an increased load beyond what it was designed to take. And many newer vehicles use computers to monitor engine and transmission temperatures and if these components run too hot, the control systems can either limit the vehicle speed or shut it down altogether to avoid major damage. Get the right hitch - With our current large selection of custom-fit hitches at very reasonable prices, there’s no need to buy a multi-fit hitch made to bolt to different vehicles, but fitting none very well. Look for established brands such as Draw-Tite, Curt, Hidden-Hitch or Reese. These are designed to bolt on without drilling and come with the right type of attaching hardware to provide a solid and lasting fit. Just about every hitch that’s used today is the receiver style that has a removable bar that the ball is attached to. These are popular because when the hitch is not in use, the ball-mount bar can easily be removed and stowed in the trunk keeping a clean look to the rear bumper and eliminating those painful shin strikes when loading and unloading cargo from the back. On the topic of these ballmount bars, it’s usually a good idea to hold off buying one (they don’t always come with the hitch) until you check the level between the hitch re-

ceiver and the trailer tongue. Ball-mounts come in a wide variety of configurations with some that sit the ball higher than the hitch receiver, some that sit lower, and some that stick straight out. It’s always best to have the trailer tongue sitting level when it’s attached to the vehicle. You’ll often see vehicles with the ball-mount adapters in place even though it’s not towing a trailer. Sometimes it’s just forgetfulness but often it’s because the owner can’t get the bar out because of rust. At the beginning and end of every towing season, it’s a good idea to take a narrow steel-bristle brush and clean out the hitch receiver hole and apply a light coating of grease to the ball-mount bar and inside the receiver hole. If you’re worried about grease stains from the ballmount bar when it’s stowed in the vehicle, simply wrap it in a plastic bag. Light it up – Trailer light wiring used to be a simple affair, with an unsophisticated four-prong plug harness wired into the vehicle’s rear lights supplying power for trailer brake and signal lamps. With more and more vehicles utilizing computers and electronic circuits to operate exterior lights, hooking up a trailer harness isn’t as easy as it once was. Fortunately most trailer hitch manufacturers also list and sell vehicle model-specific wiring harness kits that don’t require any cutting or splicing. If you’ve purchased and installed such a kit and the trailer lights still don’t work, the vehicle’s body computer may have to have its software updated to activate the lights. This programming is usually only available at a dealership service department.

New calculations could impact Middleville subdivision designs EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Designs for the proposed Middleville subdivision may need to be redrawn following the recent discovery that the Minimum Distance Separation (MDS) calculations used for the proposal may be inaccurate. The MDS is a calculation provided by the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) to ensure that agricultural and residential developments remain a prescribed distance apart to prevent complaints related to odours naturally occurring on a working farm. The proposed subdivision is located east of the hamlet of Middleville and south of Wolf Grove Road, in the Township of Lanark Highlands. The applicant, Jeff Jackson, proposes to subdivide a 108-acre parcel of land into 40 lots between two and four acres

in size. Since a neighbouring property to the subdivisionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposed location belongs to a working agricultural operation containing livestock and several outbuildings, MDS distance regulations will impact on the development. OMAFRA provides municipalities with software used to calculate the MDS using data accumulated from a subject agricultural operation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The municipality is responsible for ensuring the MDS is accurate,â&#x20AC;? Rob Wittkie, Lanark Highland planning administrator/deputy clerk, explained. Wittkie said there are two types of MDS calculations using both low- and high-density development. According to Wittkie, the low-density model was inadvertently selected for the original MDS calculation and using the correct and higher-density model could have an impact on the subdivision layout.

Wittkie has recently been out to the measure farm buildings at the Rodgersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; farm, the working farm located next to the proposed subdivision location. Wittkie will use data obtained from that trip to create a new MDS calculation. The Rodgers will similarly take their own measurements and calculations and then, to be 100 per cent certain the number is accurate, Wittkie explained, a third party, the OMAFRA representative for this region, John Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neil, will make his own calculations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to be able to say we have verified this (calculation) with the property owner and a third party,â&#x20AC;? Wittkie said. He speculated that â&#x20AC;&#x153;in all likelihood the (subdivision) designs will have to be redrawnâ&#x20AC;? as a result of a new MDS calculation. The planner of record for the proposed subdivision, Tracy Zander, of

SUB From page A/CP13

R0012131351_0530

At its Committee of the Whole meeting on Tuesday, May 21, committee members received a report written by the townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planning consultant, Delcan. The report was created in response to questions pertaining to the subdivision raised by residents. Crystal Rodger, of Rodgers Farm, said the report was both helpful and troubling to the Rodgers family. One positive outcome from the report, Rodger said, was that it clearly identified the new Official Plan (OP) as the planning document applicable to the proposed subdivision. The new OP was approved provincially in December 2012. Another positive, according to Rodger, is the recommendation of a site line evaluation for the proposed property entrance at the Concession 7 and Wolf Grove Rd. intersection. This was a concern raised initially by the Rodgers family as they felt the proposed second entrance would be hazardous due to the grade of the road. Of particular concern to Rodger was the reportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recommendation to revise the subdivision plans to include a connecting road across vacant land that lies between the subdivision and the Hamlet of Middleville, to allow for future growth and development. The vacant land referred to in the report is actually a field currently owned by

the Rodgers and used for farming purposes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have no intention of putting roads across our farmland,â&#x20AC;? Rodger stressed. One public meeting has recently been held concerning the proposed subdivision and no further meetings are planned in the future. According to the Delcan report this would generally be the only public meeting held, but it did clarify, â&#x20AC;&#x153;unless there are significant changes to the plan as it progresses through the approval process.â&#x20AC;? According to Wittkie, depending on the revised MDS calculations the subdivision designs may need to be redrawn, and if significant changes are made a second public meeting could be called. Wittkie explained that when a developer follows the subdivision process and satisfies all the requirements for a subdivision proposal, the development will typically proceed â&#x20AC;&#x153;unless thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sound planning rationaleâ&#x20AC;? not to move forward. Lanark Highlands mayor Peter McLaren echoed this sentiment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As long as he meets all those parameters you pretty much have to approve it,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding that â&#x20AC;&#x153;if some of those parameters get to be too onerous the developer can back out of it.â&#x20AC;?

EMC News – Andy Bassett and Morgan Jeffries are the 2013 Robert Tait McKenzie Scholarship winners, presented by the Almonte Lions Club Charitable Foundation (ALCCF). The Almonte and District High School (ADHS) students were named last Tuesday, May 21, during the 47th Annual Robert Tait McKenzie Scholarship Awards ceremony and dinner at the Almonte Civitan Hall. The Almonte Lions Club (ALC) sponsored the prestigious affair. The ‘Joy of Effort’ was the night’s theme. The ALCCF believes the youth of today are the key to a caring and prosperous tomorrow. Bassett and Jeffries were amongst seven other scholarship finalists: Kathryn Hallett, Justin LaForest, Maddie Nolan, Taya O’Connor, Bailey Smith, Billie Storie and Warren Vibert-Adams. ALCCF chair, Ann Bird said the outstanding talents and achievements of finalists enhance the Mississippi Mills community. The students give inspiration by way of their creativity, leadership, compassion and dedication. Bassett and Jeffries each received a $1,200 scholarship and an engraved miniature bronze replica of the ‘Joy of Effort’ plaque, a well-known McKenzie sculpture that graces the Olympic Stadium in Stockholm, Sweden. The remaining nominees each received $100 for their continuing education. Every one received a certificate of achievement, bookmark, pin and Mill of Kintail brochure.

The 2013 Robert Tait McKenzie Scholarship winners, Andy Bassett and Morgan Jeffries pose with Joanne Winslow-Spragge, the evening’s featured speaker and the first scholarship winner. To memorialize Almonte’s native son, the ALC initiated the scholarship in 1967 as a Canadian Centennial project. A graduate of ADHS in 1883, McKenzie excelled in many disciplines and went on to make the world a better place. He was a medical doctor, athlete, artist and sculptor. In Almonte in 1931 he restored the old gristmill, which he named the Mill of Kintail. The Mill is his memorial, a splendid museum. It displays some of his sculptures – war memorials, athletic pieces and medallions. “In the early days the award was not a scholarship,” said. Bird. “It was simply the honour of being the most deserving recipient. Over the years, with the help of the legacy of Major James Leys, scholarships were presented.”

The purpose of last Tuesday night was threefold – celebrate the efforts of this year’s nominees, honour McKenzie for leaving behind such a rich heritage, and thank ADHS staff for providing opportunities and encouragement for learning. Special guests: Joanne WinslowSpragge, the night’s featured speaker and the first scholarship winner; Sarah O’Grady, education coordinator for Mississippi Valley Conservation; Ron Ferguson, ADHS principal; ADHS staff; and of course, the nominees. Nominees With family, friends, educators, business leaders and members of the community looking on, each nominee was

given a moment to shine. Individual videos highlighted their academics, sportsmanship and volunteerism. “With fewer than 400 students at ADHS, to produce nine graduates of this calibre is simply remarkable,” said Bird. “ADHS, you do this community proud!” “Billie Storie is friendly, personable, a willing worker and keen to learn,” said the ALCCF chair. He described himself as a constant roamer of the woods and fields. Taya O’Connor puts more into her community than she takes out. She has strong organizational skills and exceptional drive. “When Taya feels overwhelmed, she always takes a step back to refocus,” said Bird. Bassett was described at full of gifts and talents, which he shares with others. He is courteous, polite, enthusiastic and a willing worker. The student strives to overcome challenges – in his life and the life of others. “Bailey Smith, you are a go-to person, a strong leader,” said Bird. “You’re diplomatic and have a keen sense of competition that is tempered with fair play. Warren Vibert-Adams is always dependable, and he has a sharp intuitive mind. The finalist is respectful and a best worker. “Training our bodies complements training our minds,” he said. Bird called Kathryn Hallett an outstanding individual with great initiative and a strong work ethic.

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.

Not Hockeyville, Ottawa Invaders say CP is ‘Footballville’ went on to the CFL. I remember going to scout Ed Kidd before he went to Queen’s (University). There are always good players coming out of Carleton Place, and the support given to the high school programs is unlike anything you would see in the city.” The Invaders, who were ranked among the top three teams in the country last season, have reached the Northern Football Conference (NFC) championship game in each of the last two seasons. In 2011, they lost a 12-11 heartbreaker to the Tri-City Outlaws of Kitchener-Waterloo-Guelph in the final. Last year, they were defeated by the Toronto Titans and former Toronto Argonaut quarterback and two-time Hec Crighton Trophy winner

Tommy Dennison. This year, the Invaders are going for their first championship. Quarterback Jeff Hildreth, a former Bishop’s Gaiters standout, and wide receiver Danny Mullins, who led the Ottawa Sooners to the 2009 Eastern Canadian championship, are both coming off record setting years. Defensive back Andre Charron, who played junior football for Cumberland before moving onto Bishop’s, tied an NFC record with nine interceptions last season. Kick-off against Montreal is this Saturday, June 1 at 7 p.m. at Beckwith Park. Beckwith Irish youth players will take part in halftime mini-game. Submitted by the Ottawa Invaders.

they can play when they graduate from junior or CIS football.” Both McAllister and Morris commented that in the glory days of the CFL in Ottawa, a tremendous amount of support for the Rough Riders came from Carleton Place and the surrounding communities of Almonte, Arnprior, Renfrew and Smiths Falls. “All of the fans in the valley gave strong support to the Rough Riders,” said Morris, who, at 49, is the elder statesman on the team and is also the oldest active football player in Canada. “The first thing I think of when I think of Carleton Place is Jim DeSilva, who I was fortunate enough to have played with at Carleton before he

EMC Sports – The Ottawa Invaders are declaring Carleton Place “Footballville.” The local semi-pro team opens the 60th anniversary season of the Northern Football Conference at Beckwith Park this Saturday, June 1 when they host the Montreal Transit. The Invaders have moved their home games to Beckwith for the 2013 season – and possibly beyond. “Carleton Place should have been a finalist for Kraft Hockeyville two years ago,” said kicker Jeff Morris. “They ran a great campaign and it’s a town that’s passionate about its teams. We hope that the community embraces the high level of football we are bringing to the valley.” Most of the Invaders players grew up playing National Capital Amateur Football Association (NCAFA) football before moving on to play for the University of Ottawa and other Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) teams, or for the Ottawa Sooners, Ottawa Junior Riders or Cumberland Junior Panthers junior programs. Several have been in Canadian Football League (CFL) pro camps. Many of the players also volunteer as coaches with NCAFA and local high school teams, and are well aware of the passion and tradition of football in Carleton Place.“The team and the players are not only excited about playing home games at Beckwith, but also in reaching out to Carleton Place and the surrounding communities in the Valley to help grow football at the grass roots level,” said Morris. “We want to grow football and form a connection with the kids playing youth football,” said Invaders’ president James McAllister. “We want the kids to grow up with the team, and we want the older players to know that there is a place where

they get to high school. Now the kids know multiple defensive fronts at 13-years-old, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing. Kids are coming into (high school) with so much of a football IQ and then a wealth of coaching. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s often hard to get a full complement of coaches

out to a high school now, especially when it finishes early. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always get people on the field to help out. In minor football we have the luxury of university players who are home and have taken their coaching course.â&#x20AC;? There is a great blend of seasoned coaches and all are certified.

Football has changed so much, especially when teaching tackling, Pankow said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of the coaching course now, taking the head out of tackling all together. Ten years ago, some drills at high school at minor level, we just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do them anymore, because it puts the kids in vulnerable situations.

There have been some huge changes in the play of the game.â&#x20AC;? Safe contact protocol, keeping the heads-up approach, are just two methods of new coaching that has been implemented over the past few years. Football finale

The league will wrap up on June 23 when they gather at the Beckwith field for their final tournament of the season. The season gets underway in early spring with indoor practices at local gyms. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It works for the kids and for the parents.â&#x20AC;?

HELP PROTECT YOUR ROOF

But you can help stop damage in its tracks by taking advantage of the warmer months to give your roof the attention it deserves. Signs of Roof Issues Determining whether something is an aesthetic problem versus a structural problem is often difficult for a homeowner, but there are things to watch for that could signal damage. “Look for signs of leakage. Water may lead to destruction of the roof system in the long run,” says Peter Kalinger, Technical Director of the Canadian Roofing Contractors’ Association (CRCA). “If water is entering, you’ll see mouldy wood members, severe staining and rusting of fasteners in the attic.” A roof that’s experiencing structural stress may exhibit signs such as light fixtures that hang unevenly or sag, doors and windows that stick or won’t open, buckling interior walls, creaking noises, new roof leaks, bowed or cracked roof framing members From the outside, look for broken or missing shingles, loose flashing or dark spots on the roof. If there is deflection (sagging) or distortion of roof, it doesn’t necessarily signal impending roof collapse, but the problem should be addressed. Start your search for a qualified roofer in your area with help from the CRCA. If a roof repair is related to storm damage, contact your State Farm® agent Jeff Julian to discuss your options.

PLANNING YOUR NEXT PROJECT! Now that the warm weather has finally arrived the building projects are now beginning. The biggest key to any project is proper planning. The project could be a new house build, addition or major renovation. Having a good set of plans makes the project much easier to achieve what you are looking for. In the end it gives everybody involved a clear and concise view and direction. At the same time makes it much easier to manage the project not only for time but cost control as well. Proper plans and planning allow material estimates and labor estimates to be complete and accurate. All this planning makes sure the proper materials and the correct amount arrive on site in a timely fashion allowing the work to move along as per plan and in an efficient manner. This will help to avoid costly delays and material waste. It is not uncommon for one delay to start a chain reaction of delays. When workers are standing around waiting for materials, it costs somebody money. And that is usually you the home owner. As price is always an important factor in any project, the lowest price with poor quality service is not always the best buy. What you want is reasonable pricing and quality service whether it is from a supplier or tradesmen. Even with best of planning sometimes things change or just don’t work out.

AAHHHH, YOU’RE PREGNANT!

What a beautiful magical time! And what a perfect time to get checked by a chiropractor. Apart from normal lifestyle stressors, pregnant women have postural changes and hormonal changes challenging their body. Even the most fit and healthy body has to adapt to these challenges over the 9 months. A well functioning spine and nervous system enables a mother to easily combat many of the hurdles of pregnancy. Often women learn to just accept pregnancy discomforts such as nausea, heartburn, shortness of breath, constipation, back and pelvic pain, when in fact they don’t need to. Having your spine checked by a chiropractor also ensures that your pelvis is sitting correctly to allow optimum room for baby to grow and move. Correct alignment of the spine and pelvis contributes to a more straightforward labour and delivery with less pain and trauma for both mother and child (research shows 24% reduced labour times in moms who received chiropractic care! That’s something to celebrate!) Chiropractic care helps women to be as healthy as they can be during and after pregnancy! Just give us a call to find out how!

RENEWING THROUGH A MORTGAGE BROKER Question: I currently have a mortgage with my bank. Can I renew through a mortgage broker? Yes, renewing through a mortgage broker is a smart move, because a broker gets dozens of lenders—including banks, trust companies and credit unions— competing for your business. While most Canadians spend a lot of time and expend a lot of effort in shopping for an initial mortgage, the same is generally not the case when looking at mortgage term renewals. Omitting proper consideration at the time of renewal costs Canadians thousands of extra dollars every year. It’s important to never accept the first rate offer that your existing lender sends to you in the mail around renewal time. Without any negotiation, simply signing up for the market rate on a renewal will unnecessarily cost you a lot of extra money on your mortgage. Remember that just because a lender had the best available product or rate for you when you obtained your existing mortgage doesn’t mean the same holds true in today’s market.

SHADE TREES FOR RESIDENTIAL LOTS – WHY IT’S SO DIFFICULT The benefits of planting trees are many. Cooling shade, calming rustle of leaves, fragrant flowers, beautiful autumn colour, habitat for birds – these are but some of the reasons that we want to plant trees. Choosing a shade tree for home is not as simple as first appears. Many of the choices offered by garden centres are just not suitable. The “normal” town lot offers up a cold shoulder to many of the obvious choices. The problem of scale is the most important issue. Many residential lots are simply not large enough to support many of the commonly available shade trees. At maturity the sugar maples or the ashes are 50 or more feet tall and have a root system so dense that the maintenance of any kind of lawn or groundcover is impossible. In an urban setting the homeowner must also find a location where the tree can grow free of utility wires. The root systems cannot be so aggressive as to interfere with sewer or water utilities. We then throw all sorts of pollutants at these trees in our neighbourhoods. Fireplace smoke, automobile fumes, exaggerated heat stress caused by concrete and pavement, winter road salt all present a hostile world for our little shade tree. It is important to know the stresses that the tree will encounter so that you can choose the right tree for you. An informed friend once commented that the average life of a tree in an urban setting is only seven years. It is likely that this lifespan is so short largely because bad choices are being made as to what to plant.

AVOID AN UNNECESSARY INJURY! With golf, just like any sport, our body does a lot of moving. It’s easy to pull a muscle when making a swing, especially when we first start off and our muscles are cold. It’s important, before every round to do your stretching exercises. One of the best exercises is an upper body trunk rotation. Place one of your golf

Don’t be a ‘drag’ come out and support Interval House at Perth fundraiser June 14 By ASHLEY KULP akulp@perfprint.ca

EMC Entertainment – Divas Barbra Streisand and Liza Minnelli sharing the stage? That’s exactly what will happen Friday, June 14 in Perth during The Gender Illusions Seven Year Itch Tour to benefit Lanark County Interval House (LCIH). Farrell Hall will be the site for evening, which will feature Gender Illusions, a four-person female illusion, music and comedy troupe including performers Dynasty Starr, Hyddie Hoe, Candice Kelly and Dixie Landers. LCIH’s fundraising coordinator, Heather Whiting, was at a local thrift store and witnessed a young man purchasing a wedding dress. Curious, she asked him what it was for and he said he was doing a drag show. “I asked him if his troupe would be interested in doing a show for Interval House,” she said, adding that she actually saw a Gender Illusions show a few years back and describes the show as high-energy. “This is the most friendly, nonthreatening, fun loving group of performers you would hope to meet,” Whiting added. Don Graham, whose alter ego is Dynasty Starr in the troupe, was only too pleased to help out. The Almonte resident said the entire group enjoys fundraising for different charities and organizations. In fact, the last time they performed in Almonte was seven years ago. He describes the show as musical theatre. “Within 10 minutes you don’t realize that these are men. It’s larger than life,” he explained. “...The whole show is about taking you on a journey. That’s the best way to put it. And we like to get our audience involved.” Graham, who has performed as

Toronto-area performer Candice Kelly, above, makes up one member of the female illusion music and comedy troupe, Gender Illusions, along with Almonte’s Don Graham. The group will bring their Gender Illusions Seven Year Itch Tour to Perth’s Farrell Hall Friday, June 14 to benefit Lanark County Interval House.

a female impersonator in Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa, began to do it as a way to express himself. “It gives me a chance to go into a different world and be a different person, although I’m still me,” he said, noting that he spends hours in front of the mirror and watching footage of his favourite stars to ensure he has their mannerisms and personalities down pat. Graham noted that often the performers fool the audience. “The best compliment I ever had after a show was when someone said they loved Barbra Streisand but her singing was off-key,” he said. “But I wasn’t singing, that was her. That’s when you know you’ve got it.” Doors for the Gender Illusions show open at 6:30 p.m. with cocktails and music and the show gets underway at 8 p.m. Those attending can not only expect to see Streisand and Minnelli, but a host of other stars, including Bette Midler, Wynonna Judd, Cher, Reba McEntire and even Gilda Radner and Lucille Ball during the two-and-a-half hour event, which features dance, lip-synching and plenty of elaborate jewels and costumes. Whiting said the sketch comedy Gender Illusions performs makes their show “more about comedy than what you might think.” “...It’s unique, because their (Gender Illusions) philosophy is about being inclusive which fits with our philosophies, too,” she commented. In addition to the main event, guests can exercise their creative sides with a host of different props in the LCIH charity photo booth and have the chance to participate in a 50/50 draw and receive a variety of door prizes. Whiting said LCIH is “happy and excited to bring this event to Perth.” “Interval House is interested in bringing more events and awareness

to the town. We counsel hundreds of women through our outreach office in Perth,” she continued. “In 2011, approximately 22 per cent of the women we work with identified as Perth residents comparable to 26 per cent from Smiths Falls and 28 per cent from Carleton Place. We want to provide opportunities for the people of Perth to participate in these efforts to end violence against women within their own community (and throughout the county.)” Funds raised from the events will go towards LCIH’s general operations, and are likely to go to children’s programs for trips. “Our public education programs is entirely funded through donations from the public,” Whiting explained. “So public education talks and printed materials, youth outreach and conferences are other activities that this fundraiser will help us to run.” For those who have never seen a drag show before and are curious, Graham said people need to see it. “You really do need to see it for yourself. There’s so much in the show. It’s good, naughty, clean fun,” he remarked. Tickets for The Gender Illusions Seven Year Itch Tour are $20 each and are available online at www. lcih.com by using MasterCard, VISA and American Express. They can also be purchased (cash only) at Shadowfax (67 Foster St. in Perth, 613-267-6817); The Gore Street Flea Market (147 Gore St. East in Perth, 613-267-3156); Carleton Place Chamber of Commerce Visitor’s Centre (132 Coleman St. in Carleton Place, 613-257-1976); and Vickie’s Specialty Shop (14 Main St. West in Smiths Falls, 613-2838142).

‘Deathtrap’ a thriller that cuts like a knife EMC Entertainment – Ira Levin’s iconic and deliciously twisted thriller, ‘Deathtrap,’ ran for more than 1,800 performances on Broadway, starting in 1978, and 35 years later, it still cuts like a knife, as intense and satisfyingly tricky as it was when it was written. Perth’s BarnDoor Productions is putting a razor’s edge on their production of the classic thriller – not a “whodunit” but a “who’ll do what.” The show, which opens June 14, has the makings of one of BarnDoor’s best productions ever, following hard on the heels of shows like last season’s ‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?’, the hard-hitting drama which drew audience comments like “one of the best community theatre productions I’ve seen” and this season’s ‘Arms And The Man’ which was called “a classic brought to vibrant life.” ‘Deathtrap’ aspires to be the perfect two-act thriller, as its own main character boasts at the outset. It has, he says, “One set, five characters, a juicy murder in the first act, plenty of twists in

the second and laughs in all the right places.” Levin’s brilliantly crafted script twists and turns its audience from the first line to last, letting them think they know what’s happening and then pulling the rug out from under their expectations. It’s a rollercoaster of a play that goes from comfortable chuckles to screams of fright at the twist of a phrase… or a knife. The five-person cast, which is part of what makes it a perfect thriller, is led by some of the area’s strongest community performers: David Bird as Sidney Bruhl, a possibly washedup playwright who might just kill to have one more hit; Kristy Angel as Myra Bruhl, who is half-hoping her husband will do it; Chris Angel as Clifford, a young would-be playwright who may have provided Sidney with the motive for murder; and Janice Jacklin as Helga Ten Dorp, a Dutch psychic who keeps popping in at the worst possible moments. With a collective resume of a few hundred productions, the company brings experience

and BarnDoor’s trademark highenergy to a classic script. In ‘Deathtrap’, playwright Ira Levin has taken the basic components of thrillers and horror stories – murder, deceit, innocent dialogue with hidden sinister meanings, plot reversals, unexpected turns of events – and twisted and rearranged the pieces again and again. But even with Helga Ten Dorp’s psychic predictions, it takes a fast-thinking playgoer to see what’s coming next. The plot is like pure quicksilver – each time you think you have it, it slips through your fingers. It’s only at the very end, as the lights go down for the final time, that the audience can say: “Oh, I get it, now!” ‘Deathtrap’ runs June 14, 15, 20, 21, 22 at 8 p.m. and June 16 and 23 at 2 p.m. at the Full Circle Theatre, 26 Craig St., Perth, near Last Duel Park. Tickets are available by calling 613-2671884 or going to www.barndoorproductions.ca. No credit cards are required; cash at the door is requested. Submitted by BarnDoor Productions.

matter because all that matters is that Letty is alive. The call goes out and Roman (Tyrese Gibson), Tej (Ludacris), Han (Sung Kang), and Gisele (Gal Gadot) answer. Hobbs promises the team pardons if they can track down and stop Shaw, but this isn’t going to be like Rio. This is going to be war. The Fast and the Furious 6 does not disappoint. The cars are fast, the cast is slick, the action is intense, the racing is unreal, and the stunts are unbelievable. And by unbelievable I mean the stuff they pull in this film could only happen in a Hollywood blockbuster. Not that you aren’t willing to throw realism right out the window because everything is just that cool. While this franchise has always been about looking good it still manages to incorporate just enough story, charac-

Help for bereaved during plateau period EMC Lifestyle – As we start our journey through the grieving process, we are preoccupied with details including planning a funeral, paying bills, appointments with banks and lawyers, and starting to close the estate. Sometimes our home feels like a revolving door with people coming and going. Then family and friends go back to their regular routine and things calm down. This is when we truly realize that our loved one is gone. While this time has many names, we call it “the plateau.” In February, the bereavement support team at Community Home Support – Lanark County conducted a survey asking people what helped them get through the plateau period and what they learned about themselves in the process. Here’s a summary of what our bereaved clients told us. What helped you get through the plateau period? 1. Having information about the bereavement process ahead of time. 2. Staying in the present, putting one foot in front of the other. 3. Accepting the grief feelings and allowing myself to cry. 4. Getting together with good friends and family. 5. Having a routine and getting out of the house every day. 6. Recalling fond memories of my loved one. 7. Remembering to breathe. 8. Being with people who had been through similar losses. 9. People who don’t expect me to put on a happy face. 10. Smiles from others and allowing myself to laugh. 11. Spending time with my ‘well’ friends. 12. People and pets who needed me. 13. People doing all kinds of extra

things for me without being asked. 14. Letting people help with chores I could not face. 15. Making plans for the future. 16. Holding on to things that belonged to the deceased person and wearing their articles of clothing. 17. Participating in a bereavement support group and/or seeing a counsellor. 18. Doing something for someone else who is lonely. 19. Reading the cards and notes I received from friends and relatives. 20. Exercise, good food, enough sleep. 21. Finding a creative outlet. 22. Continuing to talk about the person who died. 23. Learning to recognize depression. 24. Learning to be okay with walking on shifting sand.

EMC Entertainment - It’s impressive how we went from illegal street racing to saving the world from international terrorists. None-the-less each film in the Fast and the Furious franchise has become bigger and better, and this one is the biggest yet. Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) has been chasing a gang of highly trained and skilled drivers across four continents. They’re led by a man named Shaw (Luke Evans), and they’ve been stealing the kind of hardware that makes countries worried. Hobbs has tracked them to London, but he can’t take them on his own so he turns to the one man who can help him: Dominic Torretto (Vin Diesel). Dom and Brian (Paul Walker) have given up the life, but when Hobbs shows Dom a picture of Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) alive everything changes. They don’t know how or why, and it doesn’t

My Take MARK HASKINS

ter development, humour and drama to make it all work. To be sure, this film is largely a lot of mind-blowing scenes all strung together, but they are strung together by a decent story. The Fast and the Furious 6 has a big cast, and each actor is a larger-than-life kind of figure. You expect the film to focus on two or three of the main actors, which it does, but it still makes sure everyone gets their moment. There’s a real sense of balance in the cast and in the story that makes the film that much better. Of course with a cast this good you’d be a fool to ignore anyone. It’s the kind of cast where everyone just clicks, and everyone is working to make each other look good. Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Jordana Brewster, Gina Carano and Luke Evans are so good you hope they never stop making these films. The Fast and the Furious 6 is just as good as the first one, and I can’t wait for seven. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

What did you learn about yourself? 1. I knew a lot more than I thought. 2. Feelings can be different day-today and I learned to ride the wave. 3. I am stronger emotionally than I thought I was. 4. I am not afraid to stay alone. 5. I was able to build a new life that had meaning, 6. I have become more empathetic and understanding. 7. To value each day and try to make it a good one. 8. I could in fact survive alone. 9. The importance of friends. 10. Life constantly calls us back and grieving is a long process with many stages. 11. Being an orphan is scary and lonely. 12. There is no love like that of a parent. It is unconditional and forgiving. See BEREAVEMENT page 58 THE EMC - 55 - Thursday, May 30, 2013

1963 Pontiac Parisienne bought and sold for $200 EMC Lifestyle - Peter Poff writes from Haley Station in eastern Ontario: â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year is the 50th anniversary of my first car, a 1963 Pontiac Parisienne 4-door hardtop. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was May 8, 1974. I had returned home to Pembroke from Sudbury, after completing my first year at Laurentian University. I would soon head for North Bay for another summer with Bell Canada and needed wheels! My dad agreed to help. We bought a nice maroon Pontiac from an older gentleman in Cobden, making me the proud owner of a 1963 Pontiac Parisienne 4-door hardtop. It had six cylinders with 230 cubic inches and 140 horsepower mated to a 2-speed Powerglide automatic transmission. The purchase price was $200. I still have the original handwritten bill of sale and the Ontario PST receipt for $14.â&#x20AC;? Peter made frequent trips home to Pembroke from North Bay in the summer and home from Sudbury during school.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a sports car but it was sporty with all the chrome and chrome â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;spearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; that ran from the front to the front doors. The big trunk and back seat often accommodated passengers who rode home with me from university.â&#x20AC;? It only let him down once when a rear bearing gave up on a trip home from North Bay. A quick tow to Petawawa and $75 later, he was on his way again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I drove it everywhere, including several trips to Toronto. One day on Lakeshore Drive while heading to the CNE, I got stuck in traffic. The engine was coated with oil from years of minor leaks, and as we inched along, the engine got hot and started to smoke. Someone in another car yelled â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;HEY SMOKEY!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I edged over to the curb and parked on some grass. I got a ticket but she started

and ran fine on the way home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My Pontiac always started, even in the coldest weather. A shot of Quickstart into the carb and she fired right up. It only got broken into once and I lost my dash 8 track player and a bunch of tapes. I sold the car in 1976 for $200, my original purchase price. I bought it with just over 50,000 miles and sold it with over 100,000 miles. It was a great car. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m tempted to buy another one. Does anyone have one? I think I could scare up $200 again!â&#x20AC;? Nineteen-seventy-six (the year Peter sold his Pontiac) was also the 50th anniversary of Pontiac. The first Pontiacs rolled off GM assembly lines in 1926, and all of them had six cylinder engines. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m always looking for more stories.

youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll focus on the wedding details, or several days if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pressed for time. Sit down together and plan thus eliminating any confusion 4. Share Duties This is the best way to get things done. You both should be involved every step of the way. Make a list of details to be taken care of, then divide the list in half. Each of you choose what you want to do. This will make grooms want to be involved. 5. Talk, Talk, Talk We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stress this enough. Be sure that if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sharing duties that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also sharing the details. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s okay to take care of certain things by yourself, just make sure youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re telling each other about it! 6. Be Flexible

Okay. So you really didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want the groom/ushers in those tails and top hats. And maybe he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want the cake to be lemon with pecan icing (!). Each of you is going to want things that the other doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care for, but flexibility is a must. Be willing to bend. If you really object to something, let your objection be duly heard and noted. Just give the other person a chance to explain. 7. Details, Contracts, and Negotiations When dealing with wedding professionals (caterers, florists, etc.), be sure to clarify all the details and your expectations during the initial discussions. Make sure you get a contract specifically stating dates, times, and locations. Be sure to include what you feel is appropriate

dress, and what you feel isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Spell out everything. Try to negotiate the best deal for goods and services, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sell yourself short on important things just to get a better price. Most importantly, be sure to read the fine print on every contract before you sign it, and make sure youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re aware of cancellation policies and fees. 8. Stay Organized This oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty obvious! The more organized you are, the less chance there is that something will go wrong. Buy a notebook, and keep all your wedding information in it. Receipts, contracts, ideas -- everything. You might also want to get notebooks for your maid of honor/bridesmaids and the best man. Put info such as dates, times, locations, and duties.

5 Must-Know Tips to Registering for Your Wedding Everyone talks about how stressful wedding planning can be and the top topics tend to include guest list dilemmas, budgeting and even drama with mom. But registering can prove stressful too! In fact, 3/4 of brides-to-be find the process overwhelming. You would think that registering would be fun because it’s kind of like the ultimate shopping spree, but when you actually are standing in the store with a scanner in your hand, you realize there’s a lot to think about. 1. Start early We recommend starting your registry six months in advance

so that friends and family can buy the gifts you really want for engagement parties, showers and the wedding! 2. Create a plan Discuss and decide the items you and your fiancé really want for your home before starting the process. Note what you already have since you’ll likely be consolidating your items. 3. Think quality Do your research to ensure you are registering for long-lasting, durable products. 4. Don’t forget the necessities It might seem boring, but you’re going to need daily kitchen tools beyond the more popular

mixers and blenders. Don’t overlook the obvious basics you’ll need! 5. Have fun! Enjoy the process! While traditional registries are most popular (93% of couples register at national/regional retailers), honeymoon registries

continue to grow in popularity, up to 13% in 2012 compared to 11% in 2010. Charity registries are another great consideration. http://blog.theknot. com/2013/05/22/5-must-knowtips-to-registering-for-your-wedding/

Bridesmaids: Ways Bridesmaids Can Help the Bride There’s something to be said for going above and beyond. Here are 10 nifty ways to give the bride 110 percent. There’s more to being a bridesmaid than parading down the aisle in pink taffeta. Celebrate your friend and her groom by helping her out and adding some extra fun to this often stressful, but very special time. Here are some of our best ideas, to inspire you to go above and beyond your bridesmaid duties. Take responsibility for the gift baskets or bags for out-of-town guests’ hotel rooms. Include a welcome letter, maps, relevant phone numbers, snacks, postcards, city souvenirs, and suggestions for fun activities. Ask the bride when she expects the wedding invitations to be ready and plan an in- bring something to eat, turn on the stereo, stuffing envelopes, and putting on stamps. formal gathering. Ask each bridesmaid to and divide the duties of writing addresses, Not only will you have fun, but you’ll also

be helping the bride finish a very tedious job! Offer to supply wedding favors or escort cards for the rehearsal dinner. If it’s a more casual affair, offer to make simple centerpieces. Ward off pre-wedding jitters by creating a distraction -- get tickets to a play or dance performance, one that you know she’d be dying to see if she weren’t so busy planning the wedding. Ask what she’s drinking at the reception and keep her cup full. Brides seldom make it through the crowd to the bar (just be sure her cup doesn’t run over). Collect disposable reception-table cameras at the end of the night and get them developed. Offer to be the end-of-the-party, final once-over girl -- collect the cake topper

Make grand plans. Follow your dreams. Take some chances. Your love will see you through it all.

With every step you take together, your love grows in strength and beauty.

I have created wedding floral arrangements for the most varied venues, from the elaborate to the simple, from ceremonies held at the Chateau Laurier to big tent, to rustic rural church, to simple back yard; from upscale restaurant to country club resort; church and synagogue; dinner party and dinner theatre. I can create stylish arrangements of exotic flowers from around the world or simple posies of wild flowers (in season) gathered from my own back field. I don’t work with silk or fabric flowers, but did once make dried flower bouquets for a medieval themed wedding (which everyone thought turned out very effectively, and quite unique). If we decide to work together on a project you will have my undivided attention: I will take on only one project at a time and I will work with you every step of the way, from planning to execution. So, if you have an event coming up, call or email me and we will set up a meeting at your convenience at a location of yyour choosing. g Please allow me at least six weeks before the event Dirk so that I can ensure the The Flower Man availability of your floral requirements and place my Weddings Partie s Receptions orders.

Great weather and optimal sightseeing opportunities -- as well as high room rates and more crowds (reserve early!) -- often go hand in hand during a destination’s high season. (Low season is when seasonal businesses -- restaurants and island ferries, for example -- shut down and attractions may close for renovations.) If high season perks are what you seek for your once-in-a-lifetime honeymoon, we’ll tell you where to go to find the best weather or, if you have your heart set on a specific place, what to expect during that month. A destination’s high -- or busy -- season usually coincides with an area’s best weather, but it can also determined solely by demand. High season in Hawaii and the Caribbean, where the weather doesn’t change that dramatically, runs from January to April simply because people from colder climes flock to their sunny beaches to flee the winter chill. Conversely, Disney World is packed in the summer despite the searing heat because kids are out of school. Weather by Date Remember that this is a guide to when different destinations traditionally experience the most ideal weather of the year. The months immediately preceding and succeeding a destination’s prime time are often called “shoulder” seasons, and usually have good weather as well. Other destinations, such as the Caribbean and Hawaii, are temperate yearround, but particularly incredible at the times listed below. January & February Argentina, Australia, Bahamas, Bali,

How to Play: At the beginning of the shower, the bride shares their “love story” with the group, bringing up key events (where they met, how they proposed, etc.) After opening presents, the host surprise guests by asking questions about the bride shared earlier. Throw in curveballs with questions like “How many times was ‘love’ used in the story?” The person with the closest number gets a special prize.

Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just your folks, you guys alone, or a combination, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll want to know all the pros and cons of who pays for the wedding. Keep in mind that a combination of two or more may be how you end up getting your wedding paid for. The Brideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Parents Pay The traditional -- and still pretty popular -- way of paying for the wedding. If everyone is contributing, pool all the money upfront and then see what your bottom line is. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much easier than saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;mom takes care of the gown and the flowers, we take care of the rest. The Pros: You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to dip into your nest egg to pay for the wedding, which means youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll probably be driving a better car, buying a better house and taking better vacations a year from now than your contemporaries who are paying -- in full or partially -- for their own wedding. The Cons: The person who pays ultimately gets what they want. Which means that if you want 100 guests but your parents want 250, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll probably end up with at least 175 to 200 people at your wedding. Having your parents pay for the wedding doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hurt your wallet, but you have to be willing to compromise on what the wedding will be like. Another downside: Having your parents pay for the wedding -- especially if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re retired, on a fixed income, or just not that well off to begin with -- could strap them down with some major debt. Everyone Pays A contemporary and effective way of taking care of wedding expenses is for the two of you, the brideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family, and the groomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family to split the expenses. It works best, if you simply take the whole cost of the wedding and divide it three ways, rather than dole out specific things to pay for: For example, if you let your parents pay for the dinner, then they may be inclined to invite more guests. It can get sticky. If you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t divide it equally -- say one party is more

Writing my own happy ending with CHEO’s help

By Vienna Arbic with Isabelle Mailloux Pulkinghorn

My name is Vienna and I am nine years old. I’m in grade three, play defense on my hockey team, and enjoy doing crafts and writing stories. I love spending time with my parents Sherry and Richard Arbic, and my friends. And I have cancer. My ‘real’ life had to be put on hold while the doctors at CHEO help me get rid of cancer. Mine is called Germ cell tumor, a very rare form of brain cancer - and I want it to go away. If this were a story I came up with, there wouldn’t be a port-a-cath, operations and chemotherapy

involved. I wouldn’t need lumbar punctures and I could be home with my parents and my dogs instead of in the hospital. I’d be playing hockey and graduating grade three with everyone in my class. If this were a story I made up, it’d be funny like the Robert Munsch books that I love so much. But cancer is serious.

they knew something was wrong with me, had it not been for the concussion itself and for the team of CHEO neurologists, endocrinologists and oncologists who care for me, my story could have had a sad ending.

One day at hockey practice I hurt my head and ended up with a concussion. I had all the classic symptoms, and even after the prescribed rest period I was not getting better. I was sleeping 18 hours a day, falling asleep at school and again later in the afternoon. I had severe headaches that even the pain medicine would not relieve. I had no short-term memory and my parents say I just wasn’t myself.

But now, there’s hope.

Chemotherapy is not fun - it actually makes me very sick. I lost my hair and I look very different because of the cortisone, but it is helping me get better. It is shrinking the size of my tumor, and that is great news! Once the last cycle of chemotherapy _QTTJMÅVQ[PML_M¼TT[\IZ\ZILQI\QWV\PMZIXa\WPMTX reduce the tumor even more and hopefully make it So my parents took me to CHEO. An go away forever.
