EMC Events – Ed Merkley, former manager of the Carleton Place LCBO, upped his bid for the ‘Live Man Auction’ by strutting his stuff to the song “Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)” by country music duo Big & Rich. Merkley offered two hours of physical labour and a gift basket. The inaugural Live Man Auction held Saturday night (Oct. 13) at the Carleton Place Curling Club, was a fundraiser for the United Way of Lanark County, raising $6,900.

EMC News – What a difference a week makes. The contracting of an entrance into the forthcoming Mississippi Valley Conservation (MVC) Centre has been tabled via a motion Oct. 9. Seven days after a motion was passed by Carleton Place council to enter into an agreement to contract an entrance for the MVC Centre on Hwy. 7, which includes turning lanes, and the cost shared equally between the MVC, developer and town, a second motion has tabled the matter and forwarded it for consideration in the 2013 budget process. Several issues were identified during discussions into tabling the motion, including cost, proper planning and setting precedents. At the Physical Environment Committee meeting on Oct. 2, the original motion was carried to move forward. This motion was back on the table at the Oct. 9 council meeting to be finalized. At this time there appeared to be some confusion as to how the cost, estimated to be around $450,000, was to be split. “It’s a three-way split,” said Coun. Gary Strike. “One third, one third and one third. That’s what was voted on upstairs.” To accommodate the larger than normal audience, the Physical Environment Committee meeting was moved to the Town Hall Auditorium. “Equally means one third

EMC Events – Don’t wait! Get your tickets now! The Dazzling Diamond Divas (DDD) of the Crown Jewels of Canada Society and the Shopping Sherpas (SS) of the Red Hat Society are hosting a very special event on Saturday, Nov. 3 – a Fashion Show/Wine and Cheese Fundraiser to benefit Lanark County Interval House (LCIH).

Everyone is welcome. Why LCIH? “We are all women,” said Fran Bryerton of the DDD, “and these women need our help.” LCIH offers emergency shelter to women and their children whose safety is threatened by abuse and gender-based violence. It must take a tremendous amount of courage to finally leave an abusive relationship, noted Bryerton, and “Lanark

County Interval House is an extremely worthwhile charity.” The event runs from 2 to 5 p.m. at Royal Canadian Legion Branch 192 in Carleton Place. Upon arrival guests will enjoy an assortment of cheeses and a complimentary glass of wine (or beverage of choice) while viewing some of the finest fashions Pazazz has to offer. “Clothing, jewelry and ac-

cessories will be available for purchase,” explained Bryerton. Purchases can be made by way of cash, cheque, VISA or MasterCard. Festivities also include door prizes and a 50/50 draw. Admission is $15 per person in advance or $18 at the door. “We only have a limited number of tickets – 120,” said Bryerton, “but sales have been slow.”

town, one third MVC and one third developer, correct?” asked Coun. Louis Antonakos. “It was supposed to be a three-way split, and they will only agree to a three-way split,” said Strike. “If anyone changes their mind, it doesn’t work. It doesn’t happen.” “It’s not in our budget,” said deputy mayor Ed Sonnenburg, “and the $150,000 equates to a tax increase between two and three per cent, unless we borrow the money or take it out of reserves – which I don’t like.” Furthermore, he has not seen any of the plans that are set out (location of turning lanes, etc.) “What I see is a knee jerk action that says we have a problem,” said Sonnenburg. “Let’s throw money at it and fix it.” The politician stressed that he has yet to see in his time on council a situation where commercial enterprise is subsidized, and he questioned, if council agrees to move forward, if precedent would be set for everybody who comes out on the extension of McNeely Avenue. “I don’t see a reason why we would treat MVC different than any other employer,” said Sonnenburg. “Yes, we support them. Yes, we want them in town. Yes, they will bring workers. Yes, they are good for the economy. We can say these things about anybody who brings in any kind

Dalton McGuinty steps down as Ontario premier By Laura Mueller

of $230 million and pressure from teachers’ unions over his efforts to freeze their wages and take away their ability to strike. But McGuinty cited party “renewal” and the opposition’s blocking of a publicsector wage freeze bill as his reasons for stepping aside. “It has nothing to do with that, and everything to do with a decision that Terri and I have made,” McGuinty told reporters late Monday night. “It’s time for us to return to our own lives, and it’s time for me to make an effort to renew the leadership of our party.” Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson, who served as a provincial cabinet minister under McGuinty, said the premier never forgot his Ottawa roots when he went to Queen’s Park and as a result, the city has benefitted from hundreds of projects that would not have happened without his support, including hospitals, schools

Premier Dalton McGuinty at his victory party in the last provincial election.

By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

EMC News – Local Liberals were caught “absolutely off guard,” with the surprise Monday night announcement that Premier Dalton McGuinty was stepping down as premier. The premier had just announced the prorogation of the Ontario legislature, before he dropped the bombshell that he intended to resign as premier and party leader, and that he had asked his party’s president to call a leadership convention as soon as possible. “This comes as a complete surprise,” said Roger Martin, president of the Lanark, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington provincial Liberal riding association, on Monday night. “I know he doesn’t back away

from a fight…(But) I wasn’t surprised to hear about proroguing (the legislature).” McGuinty’s reasons for leaving are still somewhat vague as of press time on Tuesday morning, but Martin surmised that “I think the atmosphere in the legislature has been extremely difficult to move forward…with the rancor. It was a good decision in that he needed to keep our eye on the ball. Maybe he felt he was an obstacle to things happening.” However, Martin accorded a fair deal of the blame to Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak and New Democratic Party leader Andrea Horwath. “I do believe, personally, that the opposition has been playing a lot of games,” said

Martin. “I do not believe that the opposition has come to the table.” Already, speculation is swirling around who will replace McGuinty as Liberal leader. Grit backroom operator Warren Kinsella has already stated that McGuinty would be a strong candidate in his own right for the federal Liberal leadership. But as to who will fill McGuinty’s shoes in Toronto, Martin was uncertain. “I can’t think of anybody off the top of my head,” he said. “I haven’t had much time to think about it. I’ve just heard the news. (But) we have a lot of experienced people in cabinet.” He noted that just a few weeks ago, McGuinty received about 88.7 per cent ap-

proval in a vote of members at the Ontario Liberal’s annual general meeting, “an extremely high approval rating,” which short circuited the need for a leadership review. “(So) I don’t know why this decision was made now,” said Martin. “We are in a very difficult economic situation.” Even at that, Martin was quick to defend McGuinty’s legacy. “I definitely think the premier was a premier of the people,” Martin said. “(He)

EMC news - In a surprise move after nine years as premier of Ontario, on Oct. 15 Ottawa South MPP Dalton McGuinty announced he is stepping down as premier. McGuinty asked party president Yasir Naqvi, MPP for Ottawa Centre, to convene a leadership convention at the earliest opportunity. McGuinty said he will remain leader and premier until a new Liberal leader is found and he will remain as the MPP for Ottawa South until the next election - a role he has held for 22 years. “As the party and government of relentless progress, we’re always looking for new ideas and ways to renew ourselves,” McGuinty’s speech read. “And I’ve concluded that this is the right time for Ontario’s next Liberal Premier and our next set of ideas to guide our province forward.” The evening announcement came amid opposition accusations that McGuinty mislead the legislature over power plant cancellations that will cost taxpayers upwards

and infrastructure projects. McGuinty also asked Lt.Gov. David Onley to prorogue the legislature “to allow those discussions with our labour partners and the opposition to occur in an atmosphere that is free of the heightened rancour of politics in the legislature.” Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak expressed his thanks to McGuinty for his service to Ontario. But he criticized McGuinty’s decision to asked for the legislature to be suspended, saying it prevents “critical work” that needs to be done to address job creation and the province’s debt. -With files from Metro News

put the people of Ontario first,” and wanted to “get the province on top. He certainly will have a strong legacy in the areas of health and education.” Martin added that he leaves the province “on a solid footing.” Economically, “we are faring much better than any other jurisdiction in North America.” Tory reaction Lanark, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington Progressive Conservative MPP Randy Hillier has never been one to mince words, and he certainly didn’t on this occasion, putting out a press release on Tuesday morning headlined “Exit Stage Left.” “I think he’s been quite a detriment to our province,” said Hillier in an interview on Tuesday morning. “People can be nice and genuine but…look at our extraordinary deficit,” he said, before listing off other issues like massive job losses in the manufacturing sector, the controversial placement of windmills across the province, rising hydro costs and unemployment. “He’s run out of tunes to sing,” added Hillier. “He will leave this province…in worse shape now, in 2012, than when he took over in 2003.” The news came as a shock to Hillier. “The prorogation I thought was a possibility, but I wasn’t expecting him to resign,” said Hillier. “The house is on fire and he is getting out.” Hillier pointed to the contempt motion against McGuinty’s government, the 22,000 pages of documents related to the closing of gas plants and ongoing scandals. “He saw that his future electoral opportunities had

gone up in flames,” said Hillier. He predicted that the Liberal leadership convention would likely be held in February, followed in the spring by a new session at Queen’s Park, with an election shortly thereafter, though he conceded that “speculation is a mug’s game in this business. (But) they (the Liberals) have put themselves back in control, so far as timing goes.” Hillier pointed to Ontario Liberal Party president Yasir Naqvi, MPP for Ottawa Centre, as a potential leadership candidate: “His ambitions are pretty clear,” said Hillier, though he added that Finance Minister Dwight Duncan, himself a leadership contender in 1996, would be another strong candidate. With the federal and Quebec Liberals all having leadership races, it’s a busy time for politicians sizing up their options. Hillier said he would not be surprised to see federal Liberals from Ontario, like Ken Dryden and Martha Hall Findlay, jumping into the provincial leadership race, as they have seen their “leadership ambitions vacuumed up by Justin Trudeau.” Hillier had about a dozen

private members bills ready for tabling, and now, with prorogation, “all bills vanish with prorogation.” Civic groups Local civic groups were not happy with McGuinty’s decision to prorogue the legislature, essentially hitting the reset button on Queen’s Park and killing pending legislation that was working its way through the system. “This will mean that the bills that are before the house will no longer be bills,” wrote Kory Earle, president of People First of Lanark County, which assists people with physical and mental disabilities, in an email exchange with the EMC. “Which will mean Bill 23 will now not exist,” he added, of the legislation his group is supporting, which would have banned picketing during public sector strikes in front of group homes. “It looks like we could head to the polls again in the spring,” Earle added.

Teams stay overnight in the decorated tent city, united together to enjoy music, food, activities, entertainment and to celebrate life. Cancer survivors kick off the night by walking the first lap of the event called the Survivors’ Victory Lap.

After being lit, the luminaries provide light and inspiration to participants all night. “Seeing how our community comes together to rally against cancer is an amazing thing to witness,” added Waddell. “Yes, we will have a new name and a new place, but there will still be the same love, courage, inspiration and enthusiasm that we have been fortunate to receive year after year from our regular participants.

Stronger together… United Way of Lanark County launches 2012 campaign tgesner@perfprint.ca

EMC News – Announcing a goal of $330,000, the United Way of Lanark County (UWOLC) launched its 2012 campaign in Carleton Place last Wednesday morning (Oct. 10). Close to 30 people attended the kick off, which took place over breakfast at the Waterside Retirement Community. Launches were recently held in Mississippi Mills, Perth and Smiths Falls, as well. Sarah Bridson, executive director, noted it was important for the organization to hold four separate events. “We were able to connect with more people,” she said. The local chapter of the United Way works with 16 partner agencies, which depend on financial contributions to run programs. The impact of donations is made within the organization’s three community priorities: All That Kids Can Be; Poverty To Possibility; and Healthy People, Strong Communities. The UWoLC in 2011 put $204,000 back into the community, helping in the region of 8,800 people, said Fraser Scantlebury, fund development officer. “That translates to one in nine people in Lanark County,” he continued. Member agencies supported by way of the organization include Adult Learning and Training Centre, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lanark County, Carleton Place and District Youth Centre, Children’s Resources On Wheels, CNIB, Community and Primary Health Care, Community Home Support – Lanark County, Family and

Children’s Services, Lanark County Community Justice Programs Inc., Lanark Highlands Youth Centre, Mills Community Support Corporation, Smiths Falls and District Club for Youth, Canadian Hearing Society, Tri-County Dental Coalition, TYPS (Take Young People Seriously), and YAK (Youth Action Kommittee of Perth and District). Every single dollar raised stays in Lanark County, said Scantlebury. The United Way campaign runs until the end of November. For a second time, donations are accepted through many local workplaces, by way of the United Way office, located at 15 Bates Dr. in Carleton Place, or at www.lanarkunitedway.com/give.

“United Way (member) agencies help us from cradle to the grave,” said Carleton Place Mayor Wendy LeBlanc, joined at the event by councillors Louis Antonakos and Jerry Flynn. “People of all ages in our community.” With workplace campaigns beginning for employees of the federal and provincial governments, the mayor urged all Lanark County residents who go back and forth daily into Ottawa to give where they live, directing their United Way contributions back home. Beckwith Reeve Richard Kidd congratulated the UWoLC board and staff. “I wish you the best,” he said. “Our (Lanark County) communities are very caring and giving. I know it will work out.” “Everything that needs

“We are going to make it (goal)!” exclaimed Bridson. “I want a victory for the county, donors and volunteers.” A new fundraising initiative for 2012 is called ‘Everyday Heroes Are Among Us’. “For only $1 per day – $14.04 per pay – you can become an everyday hero,” said Bridson. This year the UWoLC is celebrating 25 years. For more information, call 613- 253-9074. “Change starts with you,” declared Scantlebury.

to be said has been,” commented John Gemmell, Lanark County’s warden. He added the UWoLC is a stellar organization – the best way for residents to utilize their (charity) dollars in the county. With gratitude Jeanne Buckley was invited by Jean Perry of Community and Primary Health Care (CPHC) to speak at the UWoLC campaign launch on behalf of caregivers. “I was reflecting on my early years as a long distance caregiver to my parents,” she told guests, “and how difficult it was for them.” Buckley’s parents had health issues in the 1970s – and very little in the way of support services. After the death of her father and mother, she would become a caregiver again

in 2000. “Carl, my husband was exhibiting dementia symptoms in 2000 – subsequently diagnosed with the disease in 2005,” said Buckley. “I was his caregiver for 11 years, with the last six being the most intensive.” Her spouse is now in long-term care (since last September). When she was due to have surgery in 2009, Buckley was referred to the Alzheimer Outreach Program. She was then introduced to Perry at CPHC. “During my recovery the agency was incredibly cooperative with respite for daytime and overnight help,” she said. When her health improved, Buckley continued to use the agency for respite, education and counselling. “These vital services allowed me to rest and stay connected to my friends,” she said. “With a loved one who needed 24-hour care, the support, education and counselling I received helped me to cope each day. It is my wish that you continue to fund these services.”

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Experience was one of sharing, courage, intimacy DEAR EDITOR: Recently I had the privilege to attend ‘From Truth to Reconciliation’ at Notre Dame High School in Carleton Place. I don’t know what I was exactly expecting to find there; I was, however, very surprised at the small attendance, and especially by the lack of representation from our local civic ‘leadership.’ I do know that I came away personally gifted, enriched, and blessed. This was not a session of self-pity and victimization and blaming. It was sharing of courage and intimacy, of healing and of hope. The inhumanities forced upon the children and families of the residential school system, and upon our First Nations family as a whole, are symptomatic of a mindset that continues, surely and inevitably, to cripple and to condemn us as a community, as a nation and, furthermore, as a human race. We continue to perpetuate the symptoms of our ‘social sickness’ silently and subtly, upon ourselves and our own children. We do this by our own choice and by own hand should we not take up the courage to see where we are headed, and why - and hopefully choose to walk a better and less selfish path.

What was offered freely at ‘From Truth to Reconciliation’ was a gift and an opportunity to come together intimately, to acknowledge more deeply and more personally the experience of the survivors of the residential school system, perhaps to feels its resonance more deeply within ourselves, and to take a more honest look at ourselves and our society. I am humbled and honoured by the generosity of spirit that I experienced at ‘From Truth to Reconciliation,’ and I pray that, as a community and as a nation, we can hear and accept the gentle offer of leadership and direction offered to us by those whom our society has so badly abused. We all come from indigenous roots somewhere. We all have ancestors. We all walk and live together on the earth. And to quote the infinitely generous words of the mother of one of the elders at this amazing gathering, “We are all sacred.” It is only when we stop seeking that we believe that there is nothing left to find. Thank you and Miigwetch. Jean Perkins, Carleton Place

EMC Editorial - The Canadian Cancer Society estimates 23,700 women in Canada will be diagnosed with and 5,300 women will die from breast cancer, this year alone. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month. While one in nine women has a chance of developing this horrid type of cancer only 66 per cent of women ages 50 to 69 are getting mammograms – a life saving test, according to the Cancer Society. More than 62,000 Ontarians helped to kick off this month of awareness during the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation’s CIBC Run for the Cure at the end of last month bringing in an incredible $13.1 million towards research. That figure was in Ontario alone. Across Canada, the run raised in excess of $30 million. Research is proving to be making a difference as the CCS reports the breast cancer death rate has declined close to 40 per cent since 1986. But more work clearly needs to be done. Women are dying daily and a cure is still yet to be found. In the meantime - this month’s Pink Ribbon Campaign is also looking to raise awareness of local services for women who are living with breast cancer and their families who are supporting them through their journeys. This month is also an effort to get people talking, to stir up some awareness and ultimately raise funds for research into something which is robbing women of their lives. Women between the ages of 50 and 69 are being asked to commit to getting a potential life-saving mammogram every two years. And to also join the ‘Thingamaboob pass it on’ movement. The ‘Thingamaboob’ is a keychain in the shape of average size lumps found by a regular mammogram (which is the size of an apple seed), then down to that of a lump found by a woman doing a self exam at home (the size of a cherry tomato). For more information, or how to get involved please visit www.cancer.ca or call the local Canadian Cancer Society office at 613-267-1058.

Old tilted silo and stone tower in Italy similar according to Emerson EMC Lifestyle - It all started when Emerson brought the book home from the Renfrew Library. While the rest of us picked story books, mine with pictures, Emerson always wanted a book about buildings. Now, there wasn’t a large choice of books on buildings at the Renfrew library, and that day Emerson found one, all about some huge structure in Italy, it changed his life drastically. Emerson loved buildings. Mother managed somehow to buy him big pads of plain white paper, and he spent hours drawing buildings. We would watch him at the old pine table at night drawing towers of glass. Poor Emerson, we’d say. Who ever heard of glass buildings? Who ever heard of towers made completely of windows and some with elevators going up the outside? And we’d think how odd Emerson was. Not like the rest of us who were content to look through Eatons catalogue or play cars…. no, Emerson drew buildings.

Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

The book was all about some strange building in Italy… it was called The Tower of Pisa. Emerson was spellbound, not because it was so tall and was built in some strange country, but because it had a lean to it! He sat at the table every night gazing at the Tower of Pisa, and he even drew it on his white sheets of paper! Little did we know at the time what he had in mind. “We have one just like it. Right here on this here farm,” he announced after about three nights of gazing at the pictures in the book. No one paid him any heed. It was the next day….a Saturday it was. Emerson, after his chores had been done, came in to the house and gathered up his sheets of paper

and the book on the Leaning Tower of Pisa and headed outside. “I have something to show you,” he announced to anyone within earshot. Earl and I were the only ones interested and we followed Emerson with his sheets of paper throughout the summer kitchen. He headed right for the silo. There was an old stump beside the silo… I wouldn’t go near it with a ten foot pole because that’s where the chickens got the axe. Emerson knew I hated that part of the barn yard, so he went down the hill a few good paces, and beckoned Earl and me to follow. The silo was in front of us. Emerson held up his pencil and squinted as he leveled it in his eyesight. “See how the silo tilts? Just like that one in Italy. I wouldn’t be one bit surprised if whoever built it, used the same plans as the tower in Italy. And maybe even had a hand in helping building this one here.” While that made perfect sense to me, Earl was much

less impressed. “The one in Italy is made of stone. This here silo is made of old pieces of lumber. And Emerson, you know as well as I do that the reason it’s tilted is because it’s over 100 years old, and was built on a bit of a hill,” Earl said. And besides, he added, “Our great grandfather built the silo when he came from Germany. This here silo has nothing to do with a building in Italy.” Now, as well as liking to draw buildings, Emerson also liked to hold funerals for anything that passed away on the farm. Dead birds found out on the grass, even a frog that was found in a rain barrel at the back of the house, were all subjected to Emerson’s idea of a fitting funeral. Again, Audrey and Everett refused to have any part of Emerson’s idea of a proper burial, but Earl and I being the youngest of the children, were riveted to any crazy scheme our brother had that would add a bit of excitement

to our lives out on that farm in Northcote. I had no idea if Emerson made it up, or if it was actually in the book from the library, but he said funerals were held in front of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and from now on, any funeral he would be conducting would be in front of our old wood silo. Just like they had in front of the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Well, as luck would have it, a few days later, Mother had ordered Everett to get some chickens to take into her customers in Renfrew. That meant a trip to the stump behind the silo. Emerson decided these poor chickens needed a proper funeral, and we would all meet behind the silo as Everett wielded the axe. I was having no part of it. Earl, who was as squeamish as I was when it came to beheading the chickens, said he had chores to do and the last I saw of Earl he was heading for the barn. I was already getting on an apron in the kitchen and looking for something to

do. Emerson showed his disgust by stomping outside with his papers in hand, heading for the silo, looking for something to bury. There wasn’t a dead bird or any other dead critter in sight and he had to give up on the idea of holding a funeral in front of the silo that day, because Everett said if he came within a country mile of the stump, Emerson could help with the slaughter. Well, Emerson was as squeamish as Earl and I, and the only thing he was interested in burying or holding a funeral for, was something that was already dead. We were all saved from another discussion about future funerals held behind the silo, because like everyone else who borrowed a book from the Renfrew library, Emerson had to take back in a week the book on the Leaning Tower of Pisa, or pay a cent for every day it was overdue. It was the last we heard of the likeness between our old tilted silo and some stone tower in Italy.

Auditions over for My Town’s Got Talent – vote on your favourite

EMC Events - The auditions are over – and the 15 semi-finalists for this year’s My Town’s Got Talent Finale on Nov. 2 at the Mason Theatre in Perth are set. Once again, the talented youth of Lanark County came out to audition for this year’s show. “We had over 50 performers – dancers, singers, duets, trios, poets and musicians – audition,” said Artistic Director Christy Bindhardt, “and it was really tough to choose the 15 semi-finalists. “We were blown away by the talent this year – the variety and the depth was amazing. Truly, it is the best yet!” What started off as a dream of Notre Dame High School student Jeff Gourgon, has turned into an annual event, with the show now in its third year. Auditions were held last week in

Mississippi Mills, Carleton Place, Smiths Falls, and Perth at local high schools – Almonte District, Notre Dame Catholic, Smiths Falls & District and Perth & District. “We really appreciate the support of the schools, and both the UCDSB and CDSBEO for letting us use their facilities – it makes it so much easier for the youth to access the auditions,” noted the show’s producer, Fraser Scantlebury, of the United Way Lanark County. “Our finale will be at the Mason Theatre at Perth & District Collegiate Institute

on Nov. 2 – admission is by donation at the front door, and we are looking forward to a great show, with our fantastic youth talent!” “At the finale, the semifinalists will perform for the audience and our panel of celebrity judges from Lanark County, who will select the five finalists,” according to Bindhardt, “and these acts will then perform once again, with the audience selecting the final winner. Each year the voting for the top five has been close, and we expect the same this year, with such a talented group of perform-

ers.” Bindhardt went on to explain a new addition to the selection process of the finalists this year. “We are allowing the fans to help choose the final five, by allowing them to vote for their favourite act, by donating $5 on-line to the United Way Lanark County, at www.mtgt.org. There will be video there from the auditions, and more video to come later in the month. These votes will be combined with the celebrity judges’ choices to select the final five.” Like last year, the final

five will return to the stage for one more performance. “Then, it’s up to the audience to select the winner of MTGT for 2012,” said Bindhardt, “as each member of the audience receives one ballot to vote for their choice, to see who will take home the title of Best in Lanark County, back to their hometown!” The 15 semi-finalists are: duet Amanda Reside and Phillippa MacDonald, Zach Dods AKA Dj FrOsT, dancer Lauren Mendham, singer Alexander Cox, a trio - Sara Milligan, Max Berkowitz, & Liam Mans-

field, singer Seo-Yeon Park, dancer Joshua Ivens, singer and pianist Ray Billiald, singer Monica Guerin, guitarist and singer Danny Bower, singer Keala Traversy, slam poet Santinka Schilling, singer Miranda Wilson, acoustic guitarist Isaiah Kafrissen, and a trio, Jovian Sound Elizabeth Pierman, Tom Coyne, & Jono Townsend. “These performers will provide the audience with a tough choice,” according to Bindhardt, “any one of these acts could be number one!”

She’s a member of the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame and she’ll sing some great Ottawa Valley tunes. This is her first time at the Country Harvest show and we look forward to her performance,� White states. “The Bowes Brothers have a great following and anyone who attended the Jam (the former Riverside Jam on the Mississippi in Carleton Place) will remember Kathleen (Stroud). “Henry Norwood is only 14 and he is already a rising talent,� White observes.

Almonte’s Charlie Kitts, also a member of the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame, will once again act as master of ceremonies for the show. Kitts, who was inducted into the hall as a builder in 2010, is one of the most popular emcees in the district. “Charlie knows how to introduce people perfectly and he always sets the scene nicely. It’s going to be a very entertaining evening,� White underlines. Funds raised during the venture will go to the restoration of the auditorium in the historic Carleton Place Town Hall (circa 1897). “We hope to reach the $10,000 mark in funds raised for the auditorium this year. Because the town (council) matches every dollar raised that is actually $20,000,� White explains. The doors to the upper hall of the Carleton Place and District Community Centre on Neelin Street will open at 5:30 p.m. The music starts promptly at 7 o’clock. The ticket price remains the same as always at $15 apiece. The entertainment part of the evening is again under the direction of Andy Bowes, a member of the Bowes Brothers. He too is certain to please the country music fans on hand. Besides his musical prowess he is also one of the best yodelers in the region. An added attraction is the

House Band comprised of some outstanding talent from around the region. Bowes himself will play bass and he will be joined by Brad Scott on lead guitar, fiddler Wade Foster, Ray Donaldson on steel guitar, drummer Steve Hiscox and popular Carleton Place musician and entertainer Jack Denovan on keyboards. “I’m excited about the show. We’ve got a good mix of veterans and up and comers,� Bowes says. “Gail never seems to go out of style. She is great with the crowd and really gets them involved. “We (Bowes Brothers) always enjoy playing in front of a hometown crowd. We mix in, get involved with the people and tell a few jokes. It’s a lot of fun.� Commenting on Norwood the long-time entertainer is highly complementary. “I’ve heard him at other shows I was involved with. Henry is a talented, young singer who is eager to break into the country business.� Bowes calls Stroud “a great singer and a very experienced entertainer. “We have just four acts this year. Two will perform before intermission and two after. This way everyone will be able to play a few more songs. “It’s for such a good cause. The (Town Hall) auditorium is such a great venue. But it needs

some work and that is what this is about.� White feels the theme of the venture is an asset. “People enjoy the country harvest setting (the hall is decorated for fall and Halloween). There is a lot of colour to it.� A long-time Carleton Place Recreation and Culture Department employee (he is the senior facilities manager), White is well known for operating and promoting benefit dances. In recent years his shows have focused on assisting the auditorium restoration program which is ongoing. He has also organized several successful benefit dances on behalf of the Carleton Place Arena Staff Association as well as for special needs situations in the community. The upcoming concert is not officially a staff association activity. But town recreation employees will be helping the cause by joining the volunteer group which makes the production work so well. A local committee, including Carleton Place councillors, is also working to raise money for the restoration and upgrading of the historic upstairs hall in the Town Hall building (circa 1897). Although the facility is a local landmark it was (and is) in need of major improvements. Work has been ongoing to bring the auditorium up to a higher standard in an effort to make it a more usable venue for activi-

ties of all kinds. As mentioned, every dollar raised in the community is matched by the Town of Carleton Place. White explains the Oct. 21 fundraiser is “not a dance – it’s a concert.� Up to 400 people can be seated in a “theatre-style setting.� The production runs from

7-9:45 p.m. with an intermission of approximately 20 minutes. Tickets are general admission and not reserved. Tickets at $15 each are available at the arena office as well as Graham’s Shoes, 139 Bridge St., Carleton Place; Nicholson’s Sundries on Graham St. in Pakenham and at Mark’s Cobbler Shop, 98 Gore St. E., Perth.

Food banks embark on annual Build A Mountain of Food drive By STACEY ROY sroy@perfprint.ca

food bank items and then sell these for one price at the cash. Last year this system netted Smiths Falls Community Food Bank 400 bags of food. “We’re going after 500 of them this year,� Colton announced. Nadine Kennedy, manager of the Lanark County Food Bank serving Carleton Place and Almonte knows first hand the value in pre-packaged donation bags. After last year’s food drive Freshco in Carleton Place elected to continue offering their $5 food bank bags throughout the year. “That $5 bag has sustained us through the summer,� Kennedy reports.

would not be possible without the support of the business sponsors. “Last year the grocery people were unbelievable,� Colton said. In 2011 the grocery store chains took part in a challenge that ultimately netted 20,000 lbs of food for food banks across the program. Getting more corporate sponsors on board is Colton’s long-term plan towards growing the Build A Mountain of Food campaign and continuing to meet the needs of the local food banks. Elaine Farley of Athens will be undertaking her first Build A Mountain of Food campaign this winter after assuming the role as chair recently.

with Health Unit guidelines). Volunteers also ask donors to be aware of expiry dates. The Lanark Highland’s Food Pantry operates a thrift store on George Street that offers good clothing for a reasonable price with all proceeds going to support the food bank. The ability to stock their shelves before the heavy winter temperatures kick in has proven invaluable to virtually all the food banks in the area who see an increase in numbers when utility costs increase. “We benefit greatly from these mountains of food,� remarked Julian Hewryszko of Elgin. Carolyn Barr, manager of the Smiths Falls Community Food Bank agreed, saying the Mountain of Food drive often helps her organization feed the community’s most vulnerable through to the spring. “Thank you everyone for doing this. This is marvelous,� Barr said. A big part of this support to Smiths Falls last year came in the form of pre-packaged donation bags that many of the grocery store locations filled for customers to purchase.

EMC Events – Local food banks and the organizers of Build A Mountain of Food are showing the region that hunger can be overcome by building the mountain of food higher. The annual six-week food drive in Lanark and North Leeds will get underway beginning Nov. 10 in Almonte and Carleton Place with the same focus as before – stopping the spread of hunger in our communities. “I just can’t take that we have kids out there that don’t have anything to eat,� remarked Hugh Colton of Town & Country Chrysler and founder of the Build A Mountain of Food campaign. Food bank volunteers urge donors to think of the kids when selecting their donated item. Things such as peanut butter, apple sauce and canned fruit are nutritious and enjoyable for little stomachs. For the last several years Colton and an army of food bank volunteers and business supporters have been hitting the streets to collect nonperishable food items for the food bank in that community and help fill stomachs in need. Since its inception, the program has brought in over 110,000 lbs of food and almost $70,000 for area food banks. Every can and package donated in a community goes directly to the local food bank which is supporting that community. This will be the second year Lanark Highlands Food Pantry has been on board and hopes are high that the food drive will yield even more items for their shelves. “Our numbers are climbing every month at the food bank,� explains Melanie Mills, pantry board member. On average about 80 families a month stop by the pantry in the village. This ongoing demand requires a lot of dedicated donors and a constant rotation of product. The Lanark Highlands Food Pantry is grateful for any donations, including fresh items, which are always a treat for clients. When selecting donations for any food bank it’s important to know any dents along the top or bottom of the seam will mean the donation can’t be used by the food bank (in accordance

Portion of ticket sales for Studio Theatre Production to go to charity mdowdall@perfprint.ca

EMC Entertainment – “I would rather have a dog.” This is one of the lines to be spoken by the blind heroine in “Wait Until Dark”, Perth’s Studio Theatre’s first production of the season. And some readers may have already taken in a show, which premiered Oct. 11. It was this line that got director Norma Cummings’ wheels of thought turning. For every adult ticket sold for this production, $1 will be donated to the Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind. There are still three productions left to purchase tickets for. “We thought it would be a nice hookup between this kind of a play and the guide dogs,” Cummings commented Sept. 26 amidst construction of the set. It was day five of building the basement apartment scene. “We strive for good will in the community. Part of our mandate is to serve the community,” explained Penny Silberhorn, with the Studio Theatre. She said the theatre gives actors an area to act, directors a place to direct. “We try as much as we can to put some of our money back into the community.” In addition to a portion of ticket sales going to the cause, the Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind will also

feature a promotional setup in the lobby as well as a donation dog (whereby donations can be dropped into) during the performance. Not only are they giving back to the community via the donation, they have also been hard at work preparing the performance. Calling it a “pulse pounding thriller” the cast has been hard at work since the last part of August. “It’s been a big team effort,” Cummings smiled. The eight character play features some well known actors and actresses including Danielle MacDonald as Susy, Paul Roach as Roat, with veterans Hugh McCulloch, Lucas Tennant, Alfred Von Mirbach and a new young actor, Meaghan Brackenbury - an all-star cast. Rounding out the cast are David Parry and Yogi Sepp. The performance takes place Oct. 19, 20 at 8 p.m. with 2 p.m. Sunday matinee on Oct. 21. Tickets are $20 each and can be purchased at The Book Nook in Perth, $22 at Tickets Please (ticketsplease.ca; 613-4856434), and $22 cash at the box office on show nights. Students with ID pay just $10 at the door. The Studio Theatre is located at 63 Gore Street East in Perth. Visit studiotheatreperth. com for group rates and further details.

Lanark Crime Stoppers seeks municipal funding By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland. com

“It is not. They figure that when they phone Crime Stoppers, they are talking to an OPP officer.” While he is the liaison officer assigned to collect data from the group, Huggard does not answer calls, but the group still keeps him busy. “I do a lot of the stuff on my own time at home,” Huggard said. “I volunteer a lot of my time on this… I have a full case load” on top of it. Insp. Gerry Salisbury, the OPP detachment commander for Lanark County, noted that between 10 and 20 per cent of Huggard’s time on the job is devoted to Crime Stoppers. “If we don’t have an officer as a link with Crime Stoppers, we wouldn’t have that amazing link” to information, said Salisbury. “There would be a real communication gap there. I see a huge benefit to it.” “I don’t investigate any

of the tips that come in,” Huggard added. “That would be a conflict of interest.” Crime Stoppers in Lanark County has received 86 tips to date this year, and there have been 28 local arrests made as a result of tips received from Crime Stoppers since its inception. There have been 75 charges laid to date because of tips, and four fugitives caught. So far, $400 in rewards has been approved for this year, but Huggard said, “The tips from this year will be paid out next year with the court process. Everything is a year behind.” “The one thing about statistics is that they can be your best friend or your worst enemy,” said Maguire, though he pointed out that a local tip helped to bring in an international murder suspect. One of the benefits for the group has been adding an online tip component. “What’s really nice now

about the internet is that it is anonymous and twoway,” said Huggard. “We never had that before. You had to sit in the office on a certain day at a certain time” to communicate by phone with a tipster for follow-up information. While both police and civilians are sometimes frustrated by the length of time it takes for charges to be laid when criminality is seen to be done, Huggard noted that “people don’t understand what it takes to get a warrant. There needs to be probable grounds to go into a house.” Simply phoning Crime Stoppers or the police and saying that your neighbour is selling drugs out of his house is not enough, and the police cannot ask the caller to carry out an investigation for them the meeting was told. “I can’t direct him what to do because that turns him into an agent,” said Huggard. “That’s not what

JustintimeforChristmas!



we do. We need more information.” Every fall especially, Crime Stoppers receives a lot of drug-related calls. “Every September, this is what we get,” said Huggard, pointing to a photograph of a field of lush, green marijuana plants ready for harvest, following a police raid. “For some people who don’t know, this is a marijuana plant,” he added with a laugh. “In August, 25 per cent of the tips were on marijuana grow ops,” Huggard added.

EMC News – Crime Stoppers would like to see some of the money collected from the proceeds of crime directed back to itself to help it address a money crunch. “We’re having a hard time,” admitted OPP Det. Cons. Howard Huggard, the police liaison officer with the local Crime Stoppers body, during the Lanark County Association of Police Services Boards meeting at the Beckwith Township council chambers in Blacks Corners on Wednesday, Oct. 3. “The proceeds of crime people come in, and it (the money) goes into the provincial and federal coffers. We don’t see any of it back.” Short of the proceeds of crime money finding its way back to Lanark County, Jeff Maguire, chair of Crime Stoppers of Lanark County is hoping that local municipalities will help in the effort. “We are trying to solicit a bit of support… from every municipality,” said Maguire at the same meeting. “We have never done this before.” In years past Crime Stoppers’ main local revenue came from the sale of Nevada tickets. “That has dried up for a number of reasons,” said Maguire, from changes in regulations to continuing economic sluggishness. The group has had to leave their public coordinator position unfilled in order to save costs, and “because we don’t have the resources to fill it,” said Maguire. “Budget time is coming and we hope that member municipalities will contribute to the cause,” said Maguire. “We realize that money is tight. Every little bit helps.” Unlike other similar organizations, Crime Stoppers does not often pay out to everyone who is entitled to receive a reward, simply because most don’t take up the offer. “The $1,000 (reward) from a small organization like us would cripple us,” said Huggard. “We don’t pay out all of our tips. A lot of them (callers) just want to help.” Of the $400 paid out so far this year, there is $800 that people could call in to collect that has, as yet, gone uncollected. “We’re living on trust,” said Maguire. He pointed out that “this is an exceptionally low year” for payouts, but both men said that they were aware that some criminals do try to use their service to settle scores in the criminal underworld. “They rat out their friends,” said Huggard. “They don’t

want the money. They want revenge.” Maguire admitted that people are confused about Crime Stoppers’ parentage and its exact geographic coverage area. For many years it was called the Mississippi/Tay Crime Stoppers. “It was in deference to the two rivers in Lanark County, the Tay and the Mississippi,” Maguire explained. Another more frustrating problem for Maguire and his board is that people tend to think that Crime Stoppers is an agency of the Ontario Provincial Police. “We are not directly tied to the police force,” said Maguire. “We have an independent civilian board.” Huggard agreed that this problem of perception was a difficulty for the police as well. “People believe that Crime Stoppers is run by the OPP,” said Huggard.

Hay East Fling on Nov. 3 will help transport hay to farmers in need in Lanark County By TIFFANY LEPACK tlepack@perfprint.ca

of the applications received are from Lanark County at this time,” said Hamilton. “The Renfrew-AlmontePakenham corridor has been the worse hit area and has had the largest crop damage because of the drought.” Hamilton encourages any local farmers who need hay to reach out and get an application by contacting the OFA at 1-800-668-3276 or via e-mail: brian.hamilton@ ofa.on.ca. On Oct. 9, the hay started to arrive from out west, 30 bales were delivered to Cobden. “This is the first of what we hope will be 100’s more,” said Hamilton. So far there have been only 2,000 bales of hay offered to the Eastern farmers from their Western counterparts. “The fairest way to distribute the hay is to draw names,” explained Hamilton. “We are trying to be as fair as possible.” The next draw will take place once the next load of hay is on its way. It costs $3,000 per transport for 30 bales of hay. During Hay West in 2002 it costs $3,000 per rail car to send 50 bales of hay out

west. Community support Campbell is very thankful the hall, auction items, food for the barbecue, bands and everything else for the event has been completely donated. The Almonte Fair Ladies have even offered to make sandwiches for later in the evening. Campbell has been overwhelmed with the support of the community in putting on the evening. “It’s tremendous the way people are helping out,” said Campbell. “I could not believe that the Almonte Civitan Club is donating the hall.” Campbell is very positive going into the event because as he stresses everyone involved is donating their time and resources. The concert that was recently held in Ottawa was unsuccessful as not everyone involved donated their time and resources. The organizing committee is currently looking for corR0011687559_1018

EMC Events – Farmers are helping farmers and they need the communities support too. With a level two drought declared this past summer many farmers are in desperate need for hay to feed their livestock over the winter. Thankfully, The Mennonite Disaster Service has initiated Hay East to send hay to the Eastern farmers. They have raised $10,000 and have brought together farmers from Alberta and Southern Ontario to help. Even though the hay has been donated it needs to be transported east. Dave Campbell from Maberly in Lanark County, is helping to organize the Lanark Hay East Fling 2012, Nov. 3, 7 p.m. at the Almonte Civitan Club. The main goal for the event is to raise money for the transportation of the hay to the farmers in Lanark County. Proceeds will stay here in Lanark County. The hay has been donated from farmers out west. Now the farmers in the east just need help getting it to their hungry animals. “It’s farmers helping

farmers,” said Campbell. “The community needs to come out and support the farmers and we are hoping that people will be generous and help people out.” “The event is a great asset to assist the farmers and will help offset the transportation costs,” said Brian Hamilton, the Ontario Federation of Agricultural (OFA) member’s services representative for the Lanark Area. “It helps bring our community together in a positive way; there are no negatives in what our community is trying to do. The event is designed to be a good will event on all fronts.” The volunteers decided to host the event in Almonte because the area was one of the worst affected from the drought this summer. The federation is coordinating the hay and thus far they have received 150 applications by farmers who need 30,000 bales of hay. It is expected the need may grow to 50,000 bales of hay. To put this number into perspective, it takes 10 bales of hay to feed one animal per year and it is estimated there are 3,000 animals in the County. “Approximately one third

porate and private sponsors to help cover the expense as all money raised will go directly to helping the farmers to get their needed hay. “The more money we raise the more loads of hay we can bring out,” said Campbell. “We are not in the business of buying hay just in the business of transporting it. The farmers are hurting. Agriculture is the largest industry in Ontario and a lot of different industries depend on it.” Campbell promises it will be a fun and exciting night with a lot of local entertainment, including the Bowes Brothers from Almonte, for an old fashioned barn dance. Anyone who would like to volunteer for entertainment is encouraged to contact Lyle Dillabough at 613-2574970. “It’s going to be one great time,” said Campbell. “It will be the best entertainment in the Ottawa Valley!” The event is open to ev-

eryone and any good will donation will help, for example every $30 dollars donated will help feed a livestock animal for a month. The farmers are also seeking help from the government. The provincial agricultural minister has asked the federal government to open an Ag Recovery File. This is a joint assessment by both levels of government, which takes a minimum of 45 days; currently they are at day 50 and counting. “They are assessing the situation and hopefully, will be reporting soon on findings,” said Hamilton. “Hopefully, with a positive way to help the agriculture industry.” Campbell says that he will be inviting all Members of Parliament to the event. Anyone who would like to make a donation can do so at any Bank of Nova Scotia in the name of Hay East.

EMC Events - Get your tickets now for the Retro 80s Dance Party in support of Lanark County Interval House. Pre-ticket sales are being encouraged for the event which will take a blast into the past to help change the future. The future of Lanark County Interval House that is – as they face a deficit of $59,000. The retro dance is set for Oct. 20, 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. at the Carleton Place Arena. And costumes are encouraged, so dust off those sparkle gloves, be proud to don your neon and reinvigorate that side ponytail. Costume contests will be held and prizes will be given out. There will also be door prizes, and raffles throughout the night, which will feature music by DJ Jack Denovan and a late lunch at 11 p.m. “We strongly believe in what they (Lanark County Interval House) do,” said Lisa Occomore from Valley Granite and Tile. The local business is sponsoring and organizing this fundraiser in partnership with LCIH. “They provide an opportunity to find freedom,” she explained LCIH also supports and empowers the women who have to use their services, through the journey they have to undertake. As mentioned, it is impor-

tant to get your tickets ahead of time for this night of fun. To get your tickets ($20 each) ahead of the event, please visit Valley Granite and Tile (127 Bridge St., Carleton Place), 613-492-2522 or email brianne@lcih.com. This is a mixed party, however those attending must be 19 years of age and older to attend. Local businesses and individuals have been generous thus far with donations to aid in putting the event on, as well as with prizes for the various events that night. Those wishing to make a donation may still do so by calling the number provided above. All donations for the event are “100 per cent appreciated.” In order to support LCIH there are a number of fundraising events planned for the weeks to come. Tarot sessions and Henna Decoration will be taking place at Angels Roost for LCIH, Oct. 27 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tarot experts Ann Gratton and Lise Guignard will provide Tarot readings and henna decorations or both for those who choose. Just one week later, Saturday, Nov. 3, the 24th annual Women’s Fair takes place at the Carleton Place Arena. Admission is free. There will be plenty of vendors for those who attend to both treat themselves and get a start on their Christmas shopping. From

FURNITURE

jewelry to clothing, fitness to beauty, financial consultants to preserves and baked treats, there will be lots to peruse. Prizes, a raffle, silent auction, gift bags and more are all on the agenda. Also on Nov. 3 is a Fashion Show Wine and Cheese. The Dazzling Diamond Divas of the Crown Jewels of Canada Society and the Shopping Sherpas of the Red Hat Society are putting this event on, which takes place from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Carleton Place Legion, 177 George Street. There is limited seating. For information on rsvping please email to dazzlingdiamonddivasofcp@gmail.com or shopping.sherpas@gmail.com or phone Sandra Dormer at 613253-1774. All proceeds will be going to LCIH. Those who have attended the Violet Femmes Girls Night Out Gala in the past will not want to miss the fifth anniversary edition Friday, Nov. 16. Those who have not attended before, will not want to miss this fun night either. Taking place at the Almonte Arena, the evening will be hosted by Sandra from KISS FM, there will be food, cocktails, music, dancing, a silent auction and raffle table, plus much, much more. Commencing at 5:30 p.m. the night is in support of LCIH. For tickets, visit the LCIH website (listed below) or

visit Static, located in the Old Church Shoppes, 17a Albert St., Carleton Place, or Doree’s Habit, 65 Mill St., Almonte. A little bit of “Herstory” LCIH officially opened in May of 1979, but the facility was already occupied in April by women in need of services, according to information provided by LCIH. In 1983, a fundraising campaign resulted in the purchase of the organization’s current location. Serving the entire Lanark County and Smiths Falls, Interval House currently sees between 200 and 300 families every year. The 24/7 Crisis Line receives approximately 2,000 calls each year as well. Waiting lists are now forming for group support programs as well as for individual counseling. Some of the costs the agency faces include a yearly grocery bill of $25,000, annual utility costs of $21,000, $30,000 is spent around repairs, maintenance and insurance and of course these are just a few of the many expenditures each year. A grant did come from the Ministry of Community and Social Services to build the new addition on the facility several years ago, however corresponding dollars to operate the building weren’t forthcoming. Travel costs are also astronomical

as the agency does serve the entire county, and sometimes the reality is that women live in isolated locations and situations. When cost of living such as gas prices, and groceries getting more expensive become realities, these circumstances also impact an agency such as Interval House. In order to spread the message across their coverage area, the agency moves fundraising events from community to community and features yearly activities such as the Violet Femmes night in

Almonte, various campaigns including the Daisy of Hope campaign, Mom to Mom sales and more. The agency’s The As Good As New Store, is also a source of funds and mail outs are still undertaken. There are many ways a person could donate or give to the cause without opening their pocket book. Lanark County Interval House can be reached by calling 613-257-5960, 1-800267-7946 or visiting www. lcih.org. Those looking to volunteer may call 613-2573469 ext. 27.

Local farmers working together to end global hunger By TIFFANY LEPACK tlepack@perfprint.ca

EMC News – Farmers have had a tough summer but that’s not stopped one resilient group from sharing their harvest with neighbours around the world. Donna and Allan Lowry are farm coordinators for the Mississippi Mills Foodgrains Bank project who work with volunteers from the Almonte United Church. The Canadian Foodgrains Bank’s mission is ‘working to end global hunger’, it is a partnership of Canadian churches and church-based agencies who are trying to achieve this goal. Renfrew County declared a level two drought in early July and the Lowry’s admit that the tough conditions will affect this year’s harvest. On average they have planted eight acres of soya beans in a field on Hwy 29 just outside of Almonte. “It looks like it will be half of the average crop, I expect we will be in the 15 to 18 bushels range this year,” said Allan. “We do have crop insurance that is just shy of a tonne of coverage, that is enough to cover our expenses.” The only expense they have on the crop is the fertilizer. The seeds are donated by Summit Seeds (based out of Oxford Station), the planting is donated, and the harvesting is donated by Merv Hilliard (from Carleton Place, who has contributed the combining every year). In addition the congregation has given financially to the project. “We will still have a small profit, this is what we are projecting, we are hopeful,” she said. The project started 12 years ago and has been very successful. In the last eight years, $49,000 has been raised and sent to the Foodgrains Bank from both crop revenue and donations. The funds raised locally are then matched 4:1 by the Canadian International De-

The Mississippi Mills Foodgrains Bank Project on Hwy 29 just outside of Almonte, was harvested recently (combine in the distance). While there was a level two drought this summer the volunteers involved with the project plan to submit a healthy donation to the charity. velopment Agency up to a maximum of $25 million a year. Donna admits this year has been pretty bad. She explained when they presented the plan to the congregation they were adamant crop insurance had to be paid for. The guaranteed price is 31 bushels. In a normal year 45 bushels would be yielded. “This is not the first bad year but this is the first terrible year. Like with any insurance you hope not to use it. It will cover the cost but not a big profit,” said Donna. “The drought has affected us but we have a buffer with the crop insurance.” Canadian Foodgrains Bank executive director Jim Cornelius thinks the Mississippi Mills growing project is an example of the generosity of so many Canadians. “They have started something and it is not just a one time event. It’s a system

supported over a number of years,” said Cornelius. “It’s evidence of the commitment and generosity of Canadians for people on the other side of the world. I think it is amazing.” Cornelius explained, even though Canadian farmers have had a difficult summer they understand the farmers overseas are having an even more difficult time because they do not have access to crop insurance. “That is what is amazing about farmers. They understand what hard times are about and despite that they are looking to tomorrow,” said Cornelius. “Farmers across the country have tough years and they get back up and get out there and do it again. They are very resilient.” The Lowry’s own Penlow Farms, just outside of Almonte and have 650 acres with hay, corn, soya beans, wheat, spring grain, 60 dairy cows and 75 cows.

had larger crops, which resulted in larger donations, so things have balanced out. They have held a number of local fundraising and fun events out on the farm. “It’s not hard for us to do it. It’s an easy way for us to take some of our plenty and move it to the people in need,” said Allan. “I can’t go to Kenya to dig a well but I can donate some of my land here to help them. I admire everyone who contributes to the project, what blows my mind is someone would work all day just to secure food for their family.” They are also impressed with the organization as it studies the economy so they do not hurt the economy when they are providing support. They remind everyone, they do not have to grow something to be involved in the project as there are many different aspects, which need contributions. For example, one year the Pakenham United Church gave out pumpkin seeds to the Sunday School and in the fall the children carved them for an auction, which in turn raised money for the organization.

Almonte Thunderbolts clinch first place with shutout win over SFDCI RedHawks EMC Sports - Almonte and District High School Senior Thunderbolts have a long tradition of success on the gridiron. Their dominance is in evidence again this season with a series of one-sided victories propelling them to the top of the Lanark County Senior High School Football League. The visiting T-Bolts clinched first place Friday by rolling over Smiths Falls and District Collegiate Institute (SFDCI) RedHawks 34-0. It was Almonte’s fifth victory without a defeat and gave them their first regular season pennant since 2006. That relatively short drought is in contrast to their incredible campaigns of the 1980s, 1990s and early in the new millennium when Thunderbolts dominated high school football in the Ottawa Valley, winning more than a dozen championships. In their five games to date in this campaign Almonte has outscored their opponents 160-23 including three shutouts. On a windy afternoon in Smiths Falls Friday the visitors were without their main offensive threat, running back Wes Mann, but still won handily. Almonte rang up five touchdowns, two of them by backfielder Jake Kargus. Zach Kealey helped make up for the injured Mann’s absence by romping for 94 yards and scoring a touchdown. The other majors were credited to Kevin Fournier and Chris Collinge. Quarterback Brett Mosley completed seven of 12 passes for 119 yards and two TDs. “Jake (Kargus) led the way on offence but the defence dominated,� says Almonte head coach Chris Spratt. The veteran coach gave special credit to linebackers Ben Kealey, Scott Bowden and Brad Drynan. Thunderbolts wrap up the regular season at home tomorrow (Friday) against Notre Dame Catholic High School Warriors of Carleton Place. The kick-off is scheduled for 1 p.m. In last week’s other Lanark County senior action it was second place St. John Catholic High School Spartans beating crosstown rival Perth and District Collegiate Institute Blue Devils (PDCI) by a 19-14 margin at the PDCI field. Carleton Place High School Golden Bears (2-3) are fourth after sneaking past local rivals Notre Dame Catholic High School Warriors 17-14. The Lanark-Renfrew Junior High School Football League has three teams tied for top spot heading

into the final games tomorrow (Friday). St. John of Perth, Arnprior District High School Redmen and CPHS Junior Bears are all 4-1. All three teams were victorious Friday. St. John blanked PDCI 36-0 to complete a doubleheader sweep, CPHS shocked rivals Notre Dame 53-0 and Arnprior edged Smiths Falls Junior RedHawks 2321 in Smiths Falls. In the other league game it was Renfrew Collegiate Institute (RCI) Junior Raiders slipping past Almonte 2413 in Renfrew. In the Renfrew County Senior High School Football League two-time defending league and provincial (Tier 2) champions Arnprior continue to dominate. Redmen moved to an impressive 5-0 after knocking off Fellowes High School Falcons 35-19 in Pembroke Friday. ADHS has outscored their opponents 209-87 so far this season. In the other game second place RCI improved to 3-2 by winning a defensive struggle 7-3 against Mackenzie High School Mustangs in Deep River. Turkey bowls The annual Thanksgiving weekend Turkey Bowl games were played in the senior and junior leagues on Saturday, Oct. 6. At Naismith Field in Almonte the rampaging Senior Thunderbolts stayed perfect by blanking CPHS Golden Bears 24-0. Mann completed his fourth straight 100-yard plus afternoon and scored his seventh rushing touchdown. QB Mosley tossed two TD passes and rang up 137 yards on eight receptions as Almonte moved to 4-0. In the junior clash the Junior Bear Cubs improved to 3-1 by blanking Junior T-Bolts 30-0 in a one-sided affair. Also Thanksgiving Saturday it was St. John Senior Spartans improving to 3-1 by shutting out Notre Dame 23-0 on the artificial surface at Beckwith Park southeast of Carleton Place. The other half of the twin-bill saw Junior Spartans complete the sweep with a 36-7 triumph over Junior Warriors. PDCI hosted a doubleheader with SFDCI which ended in a split. The Senior Blue Devils were 2916 winners while Smiths Falls took the junior clash 22-12. Other Thanksgiving weekend junior action saw Arnprior edge arch rival RCI 24-19. In the Renfrew County senior loop Redmen completed the sweep by easily disposing of Raiders 42-14 for their fourth straight victory. Meanwhile Macken-

zie of Deep River evened their record at 2-2 by upending winless Fellowes Falcons 39-9. There were four junior games scheduled Tuesday. Tomorrow (Friday) struggling Almonte juniors visit Arnprior in one of four season-ending clashes. The others will see Renfrew entertain St. John at 1 p.m. while at 3 o’clock Smiths Falls hosts CPHS and Perth

welcomes Notre Dame.

Lanark County senior regular season action also ends Friday. As mentioned first place Almonte will host Notre Dame. In other games Smiths Falls visits St. John in Perth while across town PDCI will host CPHS Golden Bears. All three games are 1 o’clock starts. Renfrew senior action

will pit Deep River against host Arnprior while Pembroke travels to Renfrew. Both of the season-ending clashes are 3 p.m. kickoffs.

Semi-final playoff games in all three leagues will take place Thursday, Oct. 25 at the home field of the school teams with the best regular season records.

Outsourcing Canadian passport production is a disgrace EMC Lifestyle - One piece of personal documentation that I hold particularly dear is my passport. I am proud to be Canadian and it is an honour to be able to apply for, receive and carry a document which opens doors world-wide. A Canadian passport is a highly coveted piece of personal identification. It is much sought after by the tens of thousands who continue to come to Canada to build new lives and in many cases to escape wars, poverty or poor government in their countries of origin. Obtaining a Canadian passport is proof that they have real hope for a positive future. Up until last week I took it for granted that our passports were and will be manufactured in Canada. It only makes sense, doesn’t it! Why would we trust a document that is part of our national identity to people outside our country? Well, for the moment our passports are being produced here. But that is about to change, unless Canadians in

Reflections JEFF MAGUIRE

general stand up and demand that outsourcing the passport covers to a firm in The Netherlands be stopped in its tracks. Last week New Democrat MP Linda Duncan criticized the Conservative government, accusing them of using Canadian symbols for political gain. I’m not sure about the “political gain” part? But I am joining Duncan and those who are against the move which, if anything, seems a very dumb political decision! I believe in free enterprise and Canadian Bank Note, which is headquartered in Ottawa, was awarded the contract after a competitive bidding process last year. But why isn’t there a clause in the

agreement that the passport production remain within our borders? Canadian Bank Note has sub-contracted the covers, the most visible and therefore the most identifiable part of the passport, to a firm in Holland. A Cornwall, Ontario based business Columbia Finishing Mills has produced the plasticized covers for three decades but lost the bidding war. A Columbia spokesman told CTV News they were surprised to learn that being Canadian would have no impact on the bidding process. “We were told from the beginning when the tender came out that Canadian content had no bearing,” the Cornwall firm’s sales manager says. “I was very, very shocked about

that,” he adds. I too am surprised. I’m also concerned about the evident lack of news coverage relative to this matter. Bravo to CTV for covering it! Otherwise we might not know about it. Their story was the only one I could find on the subject last week. The Eastern Ontario company will soon stop producing the passport covers and the work will be farmed out to Holland. The Cornwall firm claims it will lose $1 million as a result of failing to secure the contract renewal and that will mean staff layoffs. That alone runs contrary to the Tories oft-stated priority of creating more jobs in this country. While I am sorry for the employees who will lose their jobs I am most concerned that a Canadian symbol, our passport, will not be entirely produced in this country should this move be allowed to stand. Columbia in Cornwall has offered to make their bid more competitive although as of

late last week the government had not responded to their overture. I have been lobbied by readers to write something about this, just as I wrote about the loss of rail transportation options in Canada a few weeks ago. That column prompted a great deal of feedback. People are furious rail transport is being further eroded instead of increased! But the passport matter is something of a motherhood issue judging by the e-mail I have received. People feel that by outsourcing production of the passport covers to Europe we are losing part of our national identity. I agree with those sentiments! Look at how much of what was once Canadian has now been transferred offshore. Everything from the fibre we once used to manufacture clothing in this country, to the fish which were caught, processed, packaged and sold here. So much has been lost to China and other nations where cheap labour makes the work

more cost effective. Check the labels on virtually everything you purchase. You will soon see that what I have written is absolutely true. We risk putting our food supply and our very futures at risk if we don’t put the brakes on this trend soon. I think that’s one reason the passport production outsourcing decision has touched a nerve with me and a lot of others, judging by my e-mail. We are losing patience with seeing so much that was once Canadian disappearing overseas. The passport issue is the last straw! If you feel this decision should be overturned please contact your federal MP and tell him or her how you feel. If enough public opinion – enough future votes – is brought to bear there is a chance this decision can be reversed. It certainly should be!

Carleton Place connection to baseball’s Triple Crown Reflections BY JEFF MAGUIRE

Who had the best totals? Hugh Duffy, an outfielder with the defunct Boston Beaneaters (now there’s a team name) has the highest batting average on the impressive Triple Crown list, a sizzling .440 back in 1894. Not surprisingly the power hitting Mantle had the most home runs on his way to the crown, 52 in 1956. The ill-fated Gehrig remains the Triple Crown RBI leader with 165 in 1934. Pure hitter Oddly Cabrera isn’t really a home run hitter. Not in the true sense of the term at least! He has blasted 321 so far in his career which is very good. But he doesn’t go up to the plate swinging for the fences. Cabrera hits the ball where it is pitched. He’s a pure hitter who is just as happy with a single or double as he is to see the baseball disappear over the fence. Not too many triples for the big man! But he is a versatile fielder, playing the hot corner (third base) for Detroit after starting out as a first baseman. As for Sam Bat, company president Anderson freely admits having Miguel Cabrera as

a customer can only help the company. National League home run king Ryan Braun of the Milwaukee Brewers is also a client. Braun cleared the fences 41 times this season and brought home 112 base runners. Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim slugger Albert Pujols (30 home runs, 105 RBIs) is also a star client. Anderson can’t spend too much time rooting for individual Sam Bat users however. “We have so many customers. I can’t really be a fan,” she laughs. The difference between Sam Bat and other firms is that every bat order is personalized. “We work so hard keeping these guys happy throughout the year,” she stresses. Individual changes to the size and weight of the bats are routine. It isn’t only Major Leaguers who are among Sam Bat customers. Scores of players from leagues around the world purchase maple bats manufactured in Carleton Place, Canada. Sam Bat is the official bat of the Australian baseball league. They also market their product in Japan, another baseball mad nation! Obviously North American Major Leaguers are the “elite” among the firm’s customers. Late this season five members of the struggling Boston

Red Sox joined the growing list of Sam Bat customers. They obviously hope Canadian maple will improve their hitting when the 2013 MLB season opens next April. Anderson says Sam Bat is

thrilled to be part of the growing Carleton Place community. “We are very pleased to be in Carleton Place. It is such a nice place to call home.”

EMC Lifestyle - Editor’s note: The following is the remainder of the “Reflection” column which appeared in last week’s edition. Detroit Tigers’ slugging third baseman Miguel Cabrera accomplished a rare feat recently becoming the first player in 45 years to win Major League Baseball’s coveted Triple Crown. The Detroit sensation is one of 100 Major Leaguers who use handmade, maple wood bats produced by the Carleton Place firm ‘Sam Bat’. If you look closely at Cabrera’s bat you will see the distinctive bat logo (the flying kind) of the company. And where we left off… A low-key customer is someone who doesn’t give Sam Bat a lot of feedback. But when you wield a 34 inch, 32 ounce “weapon” as well as Miguel Cabrera does, what is there to worry about? He finished the campaign with a solid .330 batting average, blasted 44 homers and rang up an incredible 139 RBIs (runs batted in). By comparison the previous winner Yastrzemski compiled a .326 average and launched 44 round trippers, the same number as Cabrera. But Yaz drove in 121. That’s 18 fewer RBI than the Tigers’ sensation. In fact Cabrera’s 2012 RBI total is the fifth best among Triple Crown winners.

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23

Aries, you may need some creative strategies to clear up some conflicts in your schedule this week. You must be quite popular since you have so much going on.

Libra, whether feedback from work is positive or negative, rest assured that hard work will ultimately garner some recognition. Keep working hard and all will work out.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21

SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22

Taurus, there’s so much to get done this week that you may not know where to begin. Making a list of your responsibilities may help you get organized.

No one is going to know how you feel unless you speak up, Scorpio. Don’t slink into the shadows; get out in the open and have your voice heard.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21

Gemini, you may be on the fence about making a large purchase, but the stars indicate that now could be a good time to buy and things will work in your favor financially.

Projects around the house seem to grow with every passing day, Sagittarius. If you do not think you can get them all done on your own, it may be time to hire a professional.

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20

Cancer, instead of rushing along through the daily grind, take some time to slow down and enjoy the scenery along the way. This will help you clear your head and relax.

Experiencing car troubles, Capricorn? This may be the ideal time to go shopping for a new vehicle. A new ride can lift your spirits and put to rest those fears about your current vehicle.

Leo, the weekend will not be fun unless you finish up all of your work at the office. Don’t procrastinate and leave all the difficult tasks until next week.

Don’t work yourself silly, Aquarius. It’s good to be productive and company-minded, but not if it comes at the price of your health. Recharge before you tackle anything else.

PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20

Virgo, there are serious things to consider with respect to your family life, and not all of the conversations will go your way. Be patient and work through everything a little at a time.

Pisces, while it can be challenging to sit idle, lazy days are very often great ways to catch up on some rest and personal time.

They are in production of a new film entitled “Almonte’s Interwoven Past�. The film will be a comprehensive telling of the always fascinating and often surprising history of Almonte. The film will be the first record of Almonte’s history in glorious high definition video. It will feature old photos and films, plus current day video footage and live on-camera interviews with town residents and historians who have first hand stories, memories and knowledge about Almonte’s rich history. “Almonte’s Interwoven Past� will bring to life ... as only film can do ... the stories of the early pioneers and settlers, the early lumber trade, Almonte’s flourishing textile industry, the many mills and business entrepreneurs, the railroad, early businesses, doctors, teachers, churches, schools, hospitals, and more. Viewers will see the grand architecture of Almonte’s past and learn about the fascinating families that built, worked and lived in the beautiful homes and heritage buildings. You will learn things about Almonte that you never knew before! For example how Peacock Crescent and other streets around town got their names; whose face is represented in the statue on the Cenotaph; why the widow’s walk was built on the top of what is now Gamble’s Funer-

Canadian Cancer Society transportation program a saving grace Gananoque to Cardinal and the County of Lanark. Of those drivers, 21 were new volunteers trained this year. Jonsen started her radiation treatments in Ottawa on Feb. 22, and met several of the Mississippi Mills drivers over the next five weeks. The first was Barbara Hamilton, who has driven for 25 years. Jonsen also met Ron Lavoie, Chris Newton, Winston Hooper and Jan Maydan, who has since taken on the duties as convenor for the Mississippi Mills volunteer drivers. “If they had not been doing that, I would probably have had to have a taxi every day,” Jonsen stressed. “They were all volunteers, and they all got into it in a different kind of way.” The commonality, she added, was that the drivers had all had or known someone who had dealt with cancer. Even though each treatment lasted 10 minutes or less, Jonsen found that they tired her out to the point that she fell asleep within 10 minutes of heading home to Clayton. She said the drivers were all very pleasant, and allowed her to talk or sleep, depending on how she was feeling. “These people seem to do it year in, year out,” she said. “They don’t take too many times off. It’s amazing, it really is.” She said the Canadian Cancer Society was a saving grace during her treatment. “All I can say is, thank goodness for the cancer society,” she said. “Each person was totally different but you still had the same feeling that that’s what they

wanted to do, was help you.” Following treatments, Jonsen has recovered quickly, starting to garden as soon as spring arrived last year at the home designed by Cannell and built six years ago on the outskirts of Clayton. Wheels of Hope campaign The Wheels of Hope campaign has become an annual fundraiser for the transportation program

since its successful start last fall. It runs from September to December, and benefits the transportation program that filled 3,909 requests last year, taking 1,032 local clients to cancer-related appointments – a total of 318,212 kilometres. The program in Lanark, Leeds and Grenville counties cost more than $93,500 last year, with the average cost of one round-trip appointment costing $60 for mileage. The provincial average is $30, because many

clients in the tri-county area travel outside of the counties for treatment. With the average cancer treatment lasting seven weeks, that means the cost to the Canadian Cancer Society would be $840. If you would like to help

EMC News - It was Labour Day two years ago when Suzanne Jonsen first discovered a lump in her breast. Her husband, Tony Cannell, made plans to drive her to appointments – first to confirm the breast cancer diagnosis, then for surgery in Winchester, followed by radiation treatments at the Irving Greenberg Cancer Centre behind the Queensway-Carleton Hospital. Plans changed after the surgery, however, when Cannell suffered a minor stroke that resulted in the temporary loss of his driver’s licence. “I needed a driver in and out because on the 26th of January (of 2011), my husband had a small stroke,” the Clayton, Ont., resident explained. “His licence was revoked. We were in trouble.” Jonsen was at a loss. She and Cannell had lived together in Clayton for more than 12 years, and she had some friends who could make the trip with her now and then – but five days a week for five weeks was more than she could manage. That’s when a friend suggested she call Claytonarea resident Kathy Lowe, who has taken part in the Lombardy Relay for Life for 10 years and helped fundraise for the Canadian Cancer Society. Lowe mentioned the transportation program run by the cancer society, which relies on volunteer drivers to take patients to appointments for cancer treatments. The Lanark, Leeds and Grenville branch of the Canadian Cancer Society has 79 volunteer drivers to cover an area from

Jake may be a bit apprehensive but will open up with time This Week’s Pets

Jake the Border Collie Mix and Bugle the Beagle to calm down. I’m an adolescent and I love to climb up on things... The people at the shelter think that perhaps I was used to climbing on top of my doghouse. Whatever the case, let it be known that to find a home with a stand of sorts would be my greatest of joys! Shakeera is a Rottweiler X, black and tan, female (spayed), three years old. A little about me... I am a very affectionate girl, but I can be cautious and apprehensive around new people. I know some basic commands such as “sit, down and shake a paw” and I have a good recall when off-leash. I learn best when the rules are clearly defined and... it helps if you have treats in your pocket! I will need a gentle owner who will

guide me in a consistent manner. Despite all the activity at the shelter I am not very vocal but I can be choosy about the dogs that I play with. I love to play fetch and I will need an owner who can keep up with me! CJ is a faithful, five year old lady, home loving couch potato seeking good cook! I’ve been at LAWS since March, and although the ladies take good care of me, I really want a home to spread out my paws and play with you. Please come and meet me soon. Hibou is a young, demure, shy female cat who enjoys quiet times and being petted. Hibou came to LAWS in January 2012 at only two months of age. She would love to see what’s out there in

GLENVIEW

the real world. Please consider choosing her, she’s a really sweet cat. Pop is an outgoing confident, red head who loves being petted. Pop is a real boy, about three years old with short orange hair. Meet me and you’ll like me! Lisa: I am a two year old Domestic Short Hair grey and white mom. Kids are gone, now it’s time for me to smell the roses. I’ve been spayed so no more accidents. I keep myself really clean and slim. Would love to meet you! Fundraiser for LAWS Everything Zen Band will be at Farrell Hall on Friday, Oct. 26 from 8 p.m. -2 a.m. There will be a silent auction. For tickets contact Kellie 613-250-9183, or Diane Morrow at 613-4643245, also available at Imperial Perth, and LAWS. This event is sponsored by Farrell Hall (Terry Lee and Kellie Desjardine). Please come out and help LAWS. Organizers are also looking for silent auction items which they are willing to pick up. Just contact them for more information. New “pet adoption” site LAWS is proud to announce that Natural Pet Foods has joined us in our ongoing efforts to rehome cats. You now have the opportunity to view and adopt cats at their

following location: Natural Pet Food, 61 Bridge St., Carleton Place, 613-253-7387. The cats located in these stores are all shelter animals and LAWS receives 100 per cent of the adoption fee. All cats are vaccinated (with the exception of the Rabies Vaccine), microchipped and spayed/neutered. LAWS extends a huge thank you to Shirley Ann Blonski from the Perth Fabric and Craft store for donating wonderful fabric for one of the cat rooms’ curtains. The curtains have been sewn by a generous cat volunteer and now the kittens and staff are enjoying the new look very much. We are also grateful for Shirley Ann’s generous monetary donation. Your help has been much appreciated. During the Oct. 12-14 weekend, Pet Valu Stores all across Canada celebrated the N.A.W. Weekend (National Adoption Weekend). LAWS animals, both cats and dogs, were featured in all area Pet Valu locations: Carleton Place, Perth, Kemptville, Smiths Falls and Almonte. This wonderful opportunity to give exposure to our shelter animals would not have been possible without the generosity of the staff at the Pet Valu stores, nor would it have gone so smoothly without the many wonderful, col-

laborative LAWS volunteers whose availability and loyalty never falters. Heartfelt thanks to all of you... You give us the strength and hope to continue saving and rehoming these animals! Thank you! Natural Pet Foods joined us during our Petfest celebration event in Carleton Place on Saturday Oct. 13 in our quest to rehome animals. They generously featured LAWS cats from their location (which is now ongoing!) and also welcomed a featured LAWS dog into their store. Thank you for expanding our reach into the community! Lanark Animal Welfare Society is located on Glenview Road, just off Highway 43, about 2 kms west of Smiths Falls. The shelter is open Monday to Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Write to us at P.O. Box 156, Smiths Falls, ON K7A 4T1 or contact us at 613-283-9308, or email at shelter@lanarkanimals.ca. Visit our website at www.lanarkanimals.ca. Please also check out www.AdoptADog.

EMC Lifestyle – Jake is a Border Collie mix, black/ white, male (neutered) and is four years old. A little about me... When I came into the shelter at LAWS I was flea ridden and very itchy. My skin is slowly recuperating and my bald patches are slowly disappearing. At first I was a little apprehensive but I’ve warmed up quickly to the people at the shelter and I have become quite friendly and affectionate. I know some basic commands but I’m open to a lot more... I am incredibly intelligent. My new person will need to spend some time teaching me good leash walking skills. I do, however, have good off-leash potential... My recall is second to none. I can even obey commands from a distance away! Bugle is a, Beagle X, tricolour, male, one year old. A little about me... I am extremely affectionate and solicitous of attention. I am an excellent companion, I’m very intelligent and receptive. I am complacent and I love to please my human(s). When left alone and unsupervised, I need to be crated to protect myself from harm and from chewing and destroying things...This will probably pass but for now it is necessary. I benefit from crate training in yet another way; it provides me with some “down time” which helps me

EMC Lifestyle - Occasionally instead of passing along a recipe, I write a column with kitchen shortcuts and helpful tips. If I’ve come across some interesting bit of food trivia, I’ll include that as well. This week, I’ll take you from graham wafer crusts to King Louis XV of France. When you need to press a graham wafer crust into a springform pan, sometimes it’s hard to find just the right tool. If you use your fingertips, they get greasy and covered with crumbs. A fork doesn’t get right to the edge of the pan, and it flattens only a small area at a time. One of the best tools is a round potato masher, the kind that has square holes, not curved lines of wire. The curved shape fits the edges of the springform pan, and the large size covers a bigger area with each impression. Another handy item to keep on hand in your kitchen is a box of thin latex gloves, the kind that food preparers use in commercial establishments. Put on a pair of gloves whenever you’re handling a messy mixture in the kitchen. Whether you’re pressing crumbs into a

Food ‘n Stuff PAT TREW

springform pan, shaping meatballs, working with dough or mixing meatloaf, they’ll let you get right in there with your hands, yet keep them clean. A word of caution:, don’t re-use gloves that you’ve used on raw meat, fish or poultry. Throw them out to avoid possible contamination of other foods. To tenderize beef stew, add one or two tomatoes to the pot. Tomatoes contain an acid that breaks down meat and tenderizes it naturally. If your glass or plastic cutting board slides across the kitchen counter when you’re using it, dampen a dish cloth, and lay it on the counter under the cutting board. This also works on the large plastic sheets when rolling out pastry on them. If you have one of the large rectangular glass or plastic cutting board, measure its length and width. Many are just the right size for rolling out dough into a rectangle for making

pastries such as cinnamon rolls. They’re also handy for making French bread when the dough needs to be shaped by rolling it back and forth on a flat surface. Which brings us to King

Louis XV of France. According to one story, he was so afraid of being poisoned that he had several servants taste his food before he ate it. By the time the soup reached him, it was cold. He liked it so much that he had it served cold from then on.

Thirty area residents to receive Queen’s Jubilee Medals

R0011/6757341018

• Be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident; • Reside within the boundaries of LanarkFrontenac-Lennox & Addington; • Have made a significant contribution to the community or an achievement abroad that brought credit to Canada; and • Be alive on Feb. 6, 2012 (the day of the sixtieth anniversary of the Queen’s accession to the Throne). In addition to the criteria listed above, Reid requested that the three-member committee give special consideration to individuals whose record of public, community, or military service most closely resembled the kind of service shown by the Queen herself. “Queen Elizabeth has devoted her life to the service to others, starting with her wartime service as an auxiliary and continuing with her decades of tireless work throughout the Commonwealth,” Reid said. “The Diamond Jubilee Medal ought to honour those Canadians whose own lives have paralleled Her Majesty’s personal history of giving back to the community.” In Lanark-FrontenacLennox & Addington, the 30 individuals who will be

awarded a Queen’s Jubilee Medal are: Ann Babcock Master Warrant Officer Ross Babcock Shirley Boston Master Cpl. Roger JS Chevrier Andrew Clarke Chief Warrant Officer (ret’d) Leslie Closs Mary Cook Danna Dobson Hans Christian Eggink Marcel Giroux Jack Hamilton Krista Hanna-Thompson Francis C Harvey Gary Hawley Mary Howes Gary Irish David & Janice Jacklin Douglas Kilpatrick Linda Lane Henry Lane Susan O’Brien McTaggart Keith Miller Constable Sonya Oleinikow Martin Oomen Jackie Seaton Frank Streek Bernice Thompson Roscoe Trudel Sergeant Philis Vivaris

military, church and service club volunteers, firefighters, and individuals who have given tens of thousands of hours of their time to serve the homeless, the hungry, and the afflicted. It’s an honour to represent

“There are some remarkable people in our community,” said Reid. “The award recipients include policemen, members of the

a community with so many remarkable people it.” The Queen’s Jubilee medals will be awarded at a ceremony in November, following Remembrance Day.” This week was select-

ed because of its symbolic importance,” explained Reid. “Nobody gives more, in the service of Canada, than the servicemen and women who are willing to risk their lives for Queen and Country.”

EMC News – Local MP Scott Reid is proud to announce the names of 30 outstanding local citizens who will be receiving the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal. The commemorative medal, which was minted to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the coronation of our Queen, is being awarded to Canadians from across the country. Each Member of Parliament was given the opportunity to put forward the names of 30 outstanding men and women to receive a medal. Reid opened nominations earlier this year and received over 120 nominations before the July 30 cutoff date. “I wanted to make sure that the most deserving individuals got a medal.” Reid continued, “so I set up a three-member committee to evaluate all of the nominations and choose the 30 most deserving nominations. In our country, it is the Crown, not any particular MP, who is the fount of honour, and I wanted the choices to be as objective as possible, and to be completely free of political bias.” Nominees had to meet the following requirements:

Program for young entrepreneurs aims to get them started on path to success By MARLA DOWDALL mdowdall@perfprint.ca

EMC Business - All businesses can be successful. It’s about the right time, right marketing and the right product. This is what Susan Fournier, executive director for Valley Heartland Community Futures Development Corporation, believes. The local CFDC signed an agreement earlier this year with the Canadian Youth Business Foundation for their Newcomer Entrepreneur Program. The program supports young entrepreneurs between the ages of 18 and 34 who need start-up financing to launch their business. “This is a strong system that gives a lot of tools in developing a business plan, mentoring and support,” she explained. For those in this age bracket, they often don’t have equity or credit history to receive any kind of a loan to start a new business. This program provides start-up financing up to $15,000, as a loan. A program such as this makes the idea of being your own boss much more attractive. Those who are successful as a result of this initiative have control of their financial freedom, and can

reap the benefits of their own hard work. Flexible start up financing does go up to $45,000. Once approval comes through for the initial $15,000, further funding can be applied for through the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC). Loans are made flexible and feature a three to five year repayment schedule and low interest rates. “We set it up to ensure it is not an onerous task,” she noted of paying back the loan. To qualify for the financing applicants must be between the ages specified above, have a viable business plan, the business will be their full-time career, they must be eligible to work in Canada and they must agree to work with a mentor in the program for two years. The business must be new, a start-up, or the applicant must have been trying to get it going for less than 12 months. “This is a wonderful opportunity for repatriation – bringing youth home,” she commented. “It is an opportunity for young people who have graduated and can’t get something in their field. They might have thought about going out on their own and launching their own business.”

On the other side of the coin, so to speak, Fournier noted the age goes up to 34 as often by the time adults reach that point they have spent time building a home and family and are “pretty serious about wanting to go into business.” From the first point of contact, whether online, a call or a visit into the CFDC, work is done with the applicant to “hone their idea and find glitches.” The plan works its way through approval processes before the loan is approved. “Entrepreneurs by their nature are very independent. They don’t want to ask for help,” she said. “This system, from the get go, envelopes them with help.” Entrepreneurs are paired with mentors for a period of two years and they meet regularly to talk about potential issues. And after the two years is up there are a wealth of programs offered to ensure success is continued. Not only that, but the program itself provides vast networking opportunities and this is also another way entrepreneurs are guided onto the path of success. “Before during and after they exit the program there is help,” she explained. “It’s about rela-

tionships and building relationships. Our only concern is that the business succeeds.” CYBF is a national charity and is considered the “go-to” place for youth entrepreneurship. CYBF provides pre-launch coaching, business resources, start-up financing and mentoring to Canadian youth between the ages specified above, according to informational materials. To find out more about this program please visit www.cybf.ca, call 1-800-464-2963, or visit their Facebook or Twitter page. CFDCs are community based, non profit organizations run by a board of local volunteers and staffed by professionals who “encourage entrepreneurship and the pursuit of economic opportunities. Through FedDev, the Government of Canada provides funding, advice and support to 61 CFDCs located throughout rural and Northern Ontario,” according to a Valley Heartland CFDC brochure. Valley Heartland CFDC serves Lanark and North Leeds and is located at 91 Cornelia St. W., Smiths Falls, and can be reached by calling 613-2837002, by email at valley@valley.on.ca or visit their website at www.valleycfdc.com.

MMMusicworks is a music school and store that marches to the beat of a different drummer... Our school is staffed by skilled musicians from all walks of life, and our mission is simple: to inspire! We teach everything from cello to dobro, from flute to ukulele and everything in between. Our retail division focuses on full customer service (servicing guitars, pianos, brass & woodwinds, and more) and quality products at competitive prices. Our welcoming sales floor boasts a comfortable living room vibe with spinning vinyl and is perhaps the only store in existence which allows (actually encourages!) the playing of “Stairway to Heaven.” Owner George Turcotte is a skilled musician on many instruments, his passion for music infectious, and his musical knowledge broad. The facility also hosts “The Launchpad,” a professional recording studio where Mr. Turcotte dons his producer / engineer / musician hat.

Coming through a drenching rain and high winds, which emptied most of Achray campsite in Eastern Algonquin Park, 41 members of the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists (MVFN) actually enjoyed the challenges at their fifth annual Canoe Camp, Sept. 7 to 10. Below, a hardy group survived a heavy storm to take this final photo at MVFN’s three-day canoe camp. While above, some breaks in the weather allowed MVFN canoeists, kayakers and hikers to get out into nature during MVFN’s three-day canoe camp at Achray campsite in Algonquin Park.

EMC News – Carleton Place’s deputy mayor, Ed Sonnenburg was taken out behind the woodshed during the Oct. 9 council meeting. Not counting a public spanking, the politician had his pay reduced for one week and was put on notice for the remainder of the council term for a series of “inappropriate” emails. Sonnenburg was the focus of a four-page report – made public at the meeting – from the municipality’s integrity commissioner, Robert J. Swayze. “I am appalled by the time, energy and cost expended by staff and council over the past two years, on reacting to the

Team

inappropriate conduct of one member of Council,” wrote Swayze. The integrity commissioner received an official complaint near the end of July, which was signed by the mayor, Wendy LeBlanc, and chief administrative officer (CAO), Paul Knowles, alleging Sonnenburg had contravened the Carleton Place Code of Conduct when he sent an inappropriate email on July 18 to the director of public works (Dave Young) with a copy to a member of the public. Swayze was invited to review other emails written by the deputy mayor, as well as emails authored by others describing behaviour by Sonnenburg that also allegedly contravened the Code of Con-

duct. “I initially read the complaint as applying only to the July 18 email but received on Sept. 6 a further note from the CAO expanding the complaint to include two subsequent emails from the deputy mayor dated Aug. 3 and Aug. 24,” wrote Swayze. “This expanded complaint also requested that the emails in the additional material originally submitted be given full consideration as part of the investigation.” Sonnenburg was served with a copy of the initial and expanded complaints and given time to respond. Too, Swayze suggested he and the deputy mayor get together – which they did on Aug. 31. The integrity commissioner

also met with the mayor, CAO and clerk Duncan Rogers. Investigation Swayze’s investigation consisted of emails written by the deputy mayor over the course of the past two years. The email dated July 18, in reference to a request from a member of the public to trim an overgrown tree blocking a sidewalk, was unprofessional in that it criticized the CAO sarcastically and was sent to a member of his staff with a copy to the member of public, wrote the integrity commissioner. “The most egregious email from the deputy mayor to the CAO was copied to me (intentionally by him) as well as others on Aug. 3 – three days

after my notice to him that I was commencing an investigation,” he continued. It was in response to an email from the treasurer giving late notice that he will be on holidays for two weeks. “Taking exception to the late vacation notice might have been fair comment, but he also again made inappropriate and insensitive slurs about the CAO with copies also to the mayor and the treasurer,” wrote Swayze. The integrity commissioner has received 30 emails from the deputy mayor in less than two months. The report revealed Sonnenburg refers to his practice of copying council and staff See EMAIL page A/CP2 R0011658183_1004

members on emails as “my scattergun approach.” “I am advised that his contacting of staff by telephone or in person seems to be acceptable for the most part, and my meeting with him gave me the same impression,” wrote Swayze. It was suggested Sonnenburg be encouraged to continue with these methods. “The sending of these inappropriate emails seems to be compulsive behaviour on his part and must stop,” wrote the integrity commissioner. Furthermore, “it is inexcusable for the deputy mayor to continually harass the CAO openly with copies to his staff,” he communicated. “It has been hurtful to him and damaging to staff relations.” It was also noted that the mayor recounted dealing with members of staff who were in tears in her office for the same reason, wrote Swayze.

for the record, including the recommendation. “In its entirety?” asked Sonnenburg. “To get it on the record I believe that’s the best way to do it,” said Probert, “since it’s been an in-camera item with no discussion whatsoever.” “I take no pleasure in this, Ed,” he added. “If you want to read four pages I have no objection,” said Sonnenburg. Probert asked the clerk if the document was included in the council meeting’s agenda package, which is public. “I see no need to read it,” stated Coun. Louis Antonakos. “It’s on the website and the media has a copy.” Coun. Jerry Flynn made a motion to dispense with the reading of the integrity commissioner’s report into the record by the clerk, which was seconded by Coun. Doug Black. It carried – with Sonnenburg abstaining. “You wish to make a statement, deputy mayor Sonnenburg?” asked the mayor. Sonnenburg stated the fol-

lowing: “Last term four of seven councillors that were still left in a position to vote charged me with a 30-day pay suspension. My personal opinion and suspicion is that it was backlash, retribution for my going to bat for the mayor. I also must express great admiration for our CAO who has such devoted staff that they would go crying to the mayor because I criticized their boss, as stated in the report. I don’t deny criticizing the CAO. In fact, I plan to continue doing so but out of sight, behind closed doors, etc., as suggested in the report. Why I have to go to bat for my constituents without keeping them informed, I’m not aware, but I am not in a hurry to pay a couple more weeks pay for keeping people informed. I sent an email to multiple addressees to keep them all informed because we should all know what I’m doing and what we’re doing. It just seems that I am the only one to do that. Individual phone calls and closed-door office meetings are apparently better, as reported in the report and in the code. Can I say R0011685071_1018

Recommendation “I am convinced that he must be made aware that each time he presses the “Send” button that it will cost him money,” wrote Swayze. He suggested Sonnenburg’s pay be docked for one week (about $450). It was also noted that future emails could result in additional wage suspension (up to 90 days). Swayze’s recommendation would require council’s approval in order to carry out. Coun. Rob Probert on Oct. 9 asked the clerk to read the integrity commissioner’s report

more? I would like to; however, after paying over five weeks wages already for making my feelings known and criticizing the CAO, I am sure you will fill in the blanks. An election is coming and you can make your feelings known by putting me back in office or kicking me out to ensure there’s no critic of the CAO. It’s your choice. Me open or behind closed doors. Enough said.” “If I had heard that before I asked for that last motion, I would not have asked for that last motion,” said an upset Flynn. “I just want to state for the record I think Carleton Place has the best CAO in Eastern Ontario,” said Coun. Doug Black. “Wow!” exclaimed Antonakos. “You can vote it down, Jerry,” said Sonnenburg. Banging her gavel, the mayor stated that “everybody sitting here has a copy of what we voted down from being read into the record, and now having heard the comments can make their own judgement.” In an exchange with the Ottawa Citizen last Thursday (Oct. 11), Sonnenburg said he regretted his initial reaction. “I shot my mouth off at the last council meeting and I now regret it very much,” he told the newspaper. Although the Ottawa Citizen stated it had reviewed a num-

ber of emails sent by Sonnenburg over the years, no emails were attached to the integrity commissioner’s report. When asked for comment, Knowles responded with the following: “The deputy mayor read a statement at the council meeting on Oct. 9 in which he portrayed my complaint to the integrity commissioner as me complaining about a few emails in which he criticized me. I have fairly thick skin and criticism of me is not my real concern. I was disappointed when he stated that he intended to continue his ongoing behaviour. I filed my complaint about the deputy mayor’s emails because of ongoing and widespread harassing and unprofessional emails involving my staff. His emails have been ongoing, well over 100 offensive emails since the election in 2010, and they have continued despite two warnings by council and apologies and promises to desist by the deputy mayor. These emails have been widespread – sent or copied to members of council, staff, area politicians and the public. We all hope this situation will improve and we can move forward.” This is not the first time Sonnenburg was penalized. In November 2010 the deputy mayor’s ‘remuneration was suspended for a period of 30 days “for sending out derogatory emails concerning

staff and directing staff in their job.” The municipality’s code of conduct requires that council members treat every person with “dignity, understanding and respect.” Swayze is also integrity commissioner for the councils of Mississauga, Oakville, Guelph, Brantford and Port Hope. Motion Moved by Probert and seconded by Coun. Gary Strike, a motion was passed (by recorded vote) that council direct the treasurer to suspend the remuneration of Sonnenburg for one week commencing the end of the pay period following the Oct. 9 council meeting. The motion also indicated that during the balance of the term of this council, any member of council or staff may send to the integrity commissioner copies of emails written and published by the deputy mayor to any member of council, staff or the public concerning town matters (after Oct. 9, 2012). If the integrity commissioner determines any such emails are contrary to the Code of Conduct, he may direct the treasurer to suspend the remuneration of the deputy mayor for a period not to exceed 90 days. Results: Antonakos, Black, Flynn, LeBlanc, Probert and Strike voted ‘yea’ and Sonnenburg abstained.

Almonte Civitan member honoured with Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal By TIFFANY LEPACK tlepack@perfprint.ca EMC News – Civitan Paul Cooney has served his community well, so much so he has been recognized with one of the highest honours of the year. Civitan member and Mayor of Mississippi Mills John Levi presented Cooney the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medal on Oct. 8 at the start of the club’s meeting. The medal was created to mark the celebrations of the Queen’s 60th anniversary on the throne. The medal is described as a tangible way for Canada to honour the Queen for her service and at the same time serves to honour significant contributions and achievements by Canadians. Cooney was in total shock as the honour was a complete surprise to him. “Paul doesn’t like special recognition,” said Levi. “Paul is one of those guys, he has

of industry or box store.” He also told fellow councillors last Tuesday that he was beginning to get a little unnerved about being lobbied by MVC representatives. “Nobody ever lobbied me from MVC at all,” said Strike. Strike explained MVC and the developer told him that the entry belongs to Carleton Place. “I thought this was a partnership in Roy Brown Park – the development of Roy Brown Park. To say it’s someone else’s responsibility or whatever… to me it was sold as a partnership, and I see the partnership developing into the future.” “When in our previous discussions was the commercial property included?” asked Sonnenburg. “At what time during

managed the Civitan hall for 20 years and he has always done it quietly.” Levi was honoured for the opportunity as mayor to nominate someone and present the medal to Cooney on behalf of the Queen. “I looked around the community and I wanted to present it to him because he so deserves it. “He just likes to work, and it

is these type of people who tend not to get recognized.” Just before the meeting, Cooney walked in and his family soon assembled in behind him. He was told that he had to come to the meeting but did not know why his son was going with him. Levi and Cooney were quickly invited up to the front of the meeting area and Levi listed his many volunteer posi-

tions over the years. Cooney is a charter member of the Civitan Club of Almonte and has been an active member with the club for the last 40 years. He is one of the driving forces behind the medical loan program and at one time even stored the equipment at his property. He has also helped load and deliver supplies and helped with administrative needs. He has been instrumental with the tent program and has on numerous occasions loaded, erected and dismantled the tents without any help. “Both of these programs generate donations to our service club which helps to enable us to carry out many needed services within our community,” added Levi. Cooney is considered a driving force behind the Civitan Community Hall and the operation of the hall. “Paul spends untold hours coordinating the rental and operation of the hall and no

our discussion in this council chamber was it agreed and/or discussed that we were going to subsidize a commercial venture on Hwy. 7? I recognize we said that we would sell several acres to MVC, but I don’t remember us saying that we would do passing lanes, driveways or entrance ways.” Strike said that wasn’t the plan originally. “That’s what I am talking about,” said Sonnenburg. “Where did it come from?” “It became a safety issue when we all went to the sod turning (on Sept. 5) and two accidents almost happened,” said Strike, “and with the construction, I am told that there have been many more close calls. It’s basically a safety issue, and it’s about doing the right thing for our partnership with MVC.”

A sod turning ceremony was held at the future home of the MVC Centre (off Hwy. 7) on Sept. 5, to officially launch the $5 million project. “I envision a possibility in the future that if anybody else wants to use that entrance they are going to pay,” said Strike. “We are going to get our money back.” “It may represent a two per cent (tax) increase, but there is no way there is going to be an increase in taxes,” he continued. “It ($150,000) will be taken out of reserves or hydro funds, and there’s the possibility of getting it back in the future.” Mayor Wendy LeBlanc reminded Strike that reserves and hydro funds actually come from the taxpayers’ pockets. “Yes, you are correct, but it doesn’t mean a two per cent

increase in taxes,” responded Strike. “That’s a scare tactic!” Again, the councillor stressed the installation of turning lanes off the highway and into the MVC Centre is a safety issue. “To delay it further or put it off sends the wrong message to the MVC,” added Strike. “There are certain safety concerns and issues regarding that intersection,” said Coun. Rob Probert, “and it is unprecedented for us to finance a project in this manner.” He also questioned whether the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) would even approve this type of intersection. “There are a number of issues that need to be resolved,” continued Probert, “which is precisely why I want this tabled.” Coun. Jerry Flynn saw it as a reasonable request.

one but Paul knows how many hours he has dedicated to this facility and this community,” Levi told the members. Someone then shouted out “I bet his wife knows!” and everyone in the room chuckled. Cooney has also helped out with the monthly Bingo for the residents of Fairview Manor, has won the Civitan Fellowship Award and many more unknowing volunteer activities. “Paul is known to be a dedicated husband, father, and grandfather and still finds time to devote untold hours to his community through his involvement with Civitan and his church,” continued Levi. “He does all this without accolades and in fact is known to avoid recognition… He is an integral part of this community and is more than deserving of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Award.” Cooney then very emotionally introduced his family to the members and briefly spoke with

the EMC/Gazette. “It’s a little too much,” said Cooney. “I am humbled and honoured. It’s nice but I am not really deserving of it.” Linda Cooney-MacWilliams called her father a role model and is well deserving of the honour. “He had no idea that he was going to receive the medal. He likes volunteering but doesn’t need the outward acknowledgement.” The Civitan’s mission worldwide is to build good citizenship by providing a volunteer organization of clubs dedicated to serving individual and community needs. “A portion of the Civitan Creed reads as follows ‘My hands do the work of the world and reach out in service to others,’” Levi said just before he presented Cooney with the medal. “This certainly is part of the creed, which is demonstrated by Paul, each and every day.”

“In no way should it be suggested that I changed my position on what we voted on last week,” he said, “but I think this is a sober second thought.” “Let’s take a look at exactly where this money will come from and all the logistics that go with it,” he added. “If we vote in favour of tabling the motion we do not vote on the original motion (No. 123478),” explained LeBlanc. “We set it aside and we move the whole thing forward for consideration in the 2013 budget process.” Strike feared the project would get lost in the budget process. “Without giving direction tonight it’s going to get lost,” echoed Antonakos. Flynn stated it was up to council to keep it front and centre. “I

don’t think its an unreasonable request to identify where the money is coming from and in the meantime get signed agreements from the other parties,” he continued. “If we pass move forward on this, we as council commit to paying for it regardless of our budgetary situation,” said Sonnenburg. “It means trails can suffer, the Chamber can suffer, the BIA can suffer, market square can suffer, roads can suffer and sewers can suffer, because we said our first priority is to take $150,000 and give it to MVC.” The entrance into MVC’s building was designed with no turning lanes by MVC engineers and approved by the MTO. “The MTO did a study and said they weren’t required,” said Sonnenburg.

Equator Coffee co-owner recognized in national top 100 list By TIFFANY LEPACK tlepack@perfprint.ca

EMC Business - When Amber Hall used to read Chatelaine magazine, with coffee in one hand, she never thought the long-standing magazine would one day honour her. Now with the success of her Almonte based business she will be recognized along with 99 other incredible women. Hall, co-owner of Equator Coffee Inc. is one of the Top 100 Women in the 14th annual W100 ranking of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Top Female Entrepreneurs produced by PROFIT Magazine and Chatelaine. Hall is extremely humbled with the ranking and excited. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a real honour to be among this incredible group of women,â&#x20AC;? said Hall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In comparison we are very small to many of the other companies listed.â&#x20AC;? The rankings are assigned through a composite score based on the size, growth rate and profitability of their business. The list profiles the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most successful female business owners. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The women of the W100 offer 100 shining examples of Canadian entrepreneurship,â&#x20AC;? said Ian Portsmouth, publisher and editor-inchief of PROFIT in a press release on the list. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have achieved their elite status by creating valued products and services, applying deft

Amber Hall, co-owner at Equator Coffee in Almonte has been named one of the Top 100 women in the 14th annual W100 ranking of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Top Female Entrepreneurs produced by PROFIT Magazine and Chatelaine.

The Top 100 list will be featured in the November issues of PROFIT: Your Guide to Business Success, Chatelaine and online at both sites. Asked if she thinks she is a role model she says yes. The goal of the business is to be an example to the

community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to be a benefit to farmers, locally for our employees and a place people can be together,â&#x20AC;? said Hall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A real centre in our community. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a family and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more than just a profit. We want to be a business that is helping at every stage of the process and I feel really proud of what

we have built here.â&#x20AC;? Hall explains that in some regards they show a lack of a true profit because they are constantly looking to improve. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We invest it right back into the building itself and we try and support SchoolBOX as much as we can,â&#x20AC;? said Hall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our profit has been spread out.â&#x20AC;? The list is Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest annual celebra-

tion of entrepreneurial achievement by women. Hall thinks this is important because women have a lot of responsibilities to handle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As women we are trying to balance so many things in life; our husband, family, work, kids, we have so much we are trying to do,â&#x20AC;? said Hall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to have a lot of high level

achievement.â&#x20AC;? She says that she has been able to do it with her extremely supportive husband Craig, who was also recently named a recipient of the Ottawa Business Journal and Ottawa Chamber of Commerce Forty Under 40 Award. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We share both business and child duties,â&#x20AC;? said Hall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My primary role is a mother and business is secondary. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another gift of having your own business, you are able to schedule around that stuff.â&#x20AC;? Equator currently has 20 full and part time workers. The business started in 1998 in a small two-room facility in Arnprior. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At Equator we have such a team here,â&#x20AC;? said Hall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like an extended family and a real blessing at this stage. We trust our employees to make the decisions they need to make in their areas.â&#x20AC;? The business moved to Almonte in 2005 and recently opened a new location at 451 Ottawa St. with a large production area and cafĂŠ. In 2011, the Mississippi Mills Chamber of Commerce also recognized them with the Creativity and Innovation award. For more information on the local coffee roasters and cafĂŠ visit: www.equator.ca.

Lanark Community Programs bids farewell to 30-year employee By TARA GESNER tgesner@perfprint.ca

EMC News – What an illustrious career! Clients, co-workers, friends and family gathered on Oct. 10 to help Cattis Esbensen celebrate retirement after 30 years at Lanark Community Programs (LCP) in Carleton Place. LCP, part of Lanark Health & Community Services, provides support services to children and families, especially those made more vulnerable by developmental, physical or economic limitations. During her time at LCP, Cattis served as coordinator of

the Infant and Child Development Program (28 years) and coordinator of the Connections Program (three years). “Her ability to manage both programs for a year is matched by yet another accomplishment during her exemplary career – earning her Masters of Infant Education degree from Harvard,” said Ann Munroe, board chair of Lanark Health and Community Services (LHCS). Speaking about Esbensen’s leadership qualities, words used included inspirational, enthusiastic, committed and resourceful. “Cattis’ leadership can be

felt well beyond the walls of Lanark Community Programs,” said Munroe. “At the provincial level she was a member of the Ontario Association for Infant and Child Development, and at the local level she was a founding member of the board of Children’s Resources On Wheels.” It was during a presentation to the LHCS board that it became abundantly clear to the chair that it was Cattis’ love of her clients that was central to every decision. “Her warmth, sincerity and empathy were genuine,” said Munroe.

Carleton Place and District Youth Centre demolished ished, but the floor slab and walls/mezzanine in the southwest corner (around the washroom) remain. Knowles said the floor slab could then be used as a public place/patio with tables and planters.

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The demolition of the Carleton Place and District Youth Centre, located at 25 Mill St., took place on Oct. 10. The building is also remembered as the old Fire Hall. The townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fire brigade (Ocean Wave Fire Company) moved from its station at the Town Hall to the bigger facility in 1978. Seventeen years later, in April 1995, the fire department moved to its present site on Coleman Street. The youth centre (accessible from Edmund Street) is now located at the renovated Carambeck Community Centre. The formal opening of the community centre is planned for tonight (Oct. 18) from 6:30 to 8 p.m. On Sept. 25, at its Policy Review Committee meeting, council awarded Nepeanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Goldie Mohr Ltd. the contract for the demolition of the Mill Street structure, in addition to a single dwelling residence at 240 Sarah St. that was heavily damaged by fire. The town received four bids for the work. In a written report to council, Wayne Fraser, the public works development coordinator, noted the proposal from Goldie Mohr Ltd. ($37,130) was complete, balanced and all required documentation was included. Although arranged by the

Unfortunately, there was no insurance, said Knowles, and the charred remnants of the home must be tore down. The cost will be funded by way of taxes. Knowles indicated the town would sell the lot one day and recoup some of the money.

OPINION

Canadian Gazette - Your Community Newspaper

EDITORIAL

Find constructive ways to deal with difference of opinion EMC Editorial - Behave yourself. Perhaps that was the most prominent message behind a report from Robert Swayze, integrity commissioner for Carleton Place, when addressing complaints of inappropriate emails. Swayze has for several months been looking into complaints of inappropriate and offensive emails sent by Deputy Mayor Ed Sonnenburg to town staff, members of council, and the public, in contravention of the Carleton Place Council Code of Conduct.

“He (Sonnenburg) has been reprimanded by council before without effect. His emails display a routine of making offensive comments and then apologizing. Another apology will not achieve any solution,” says the report from Swayze, discussed last week at council and on the Carleton Place town website. The report describes the conduct as harassing, resulting in damage to staff relations, even incidents whereby staff members were in tears over what had taken place. While only in a perfect

world, will everyone agree with everything - in this world those of us who are adults should know the proper way to behave ourselves. Always respecting others, in particular those we work with - and in particular the team with which we drive the community forward. In a day and age where so much has been downloaded onto municipal councils, where there is so much red tape involved with everything it seems, and so many important and vital projects are being undertaken

in the community – there is no place for inappropriate behaviour. There are other more constructive ways in which to voice discontent. Tears and strain are unnecessary and unhealthy. Council is a team, meant to work in unison in the best interests of the community and its residents. Free from party politics, there are no burdens on the councillors to tow the party line, except that of the taxpayers they represent and in fact might see daily at their morning coffee

stop, or on their weekly grocery run. How can council move forward and function at 100 per cent capabilities when not all members are aligned and working cohesively? How can staff give it their all when they are coming to work to an environment which causes them to shed tears? No worker is able to provide 100 per cent effort in their roles when they are feeling oppressed in some way. Differences of opinion are overall great things as they

provide opportunities for discussion - but discussion that isn’t one sided, that isn’t hurtful or negative. In light of this report and any ensuing discussion one can only hope, moving forward, the climate will change in a positive way to allow the best possible production level from council and from town staff. A positive outcome will only benefit the community as a whole. For further details about this report please read the full story which began on the Canadian Gazette front page.

Night of fun raises double standard question

EMC Editorial – There’s a double standard I’m told. This past weekend I heard from a handful of people (men and women) about the first ever Live Man Auction in Carleton Place. The ladies-only event took place on Saturday night (Oct. 13) at the Carleton Place Curling Club, in an effort to raise funds for the United Way of Lanark County (UWoLC). While the individuals agreed that the UWoLC is a most deserving charity, they all insisted there’s a blatant double standard, which society has accepted. “I can guarantee – 100 per cent – that if an organization was to try and put on a Live Women Auction, area residents would be out in full force protesting,” said one man. Maybe, but that could be because for many, many years society has been fighting against the objectification of women. “Utter disgust,” stated a woman. “They were treating these men merely as sexual objects.” Puh-leeze! The men

TARA GESNER Tara Firma involved with the auction – close to 30 business owners, doctors, lawyers, politicians, OPP officers, real estate agents and restaurant owners – were all volunteers and were in no way forced into doing this auction. Dressed in costume, they paraded around with a special item, which was auctioned off to the highest bidder – using Halloween-themed pumpkin paddles. The night’s emcee was Wayne Cavanagh of 92.3 JACK FM in Smiths Falls, and Jason Hands of Hands Auction Services Ltd. in Brockville was the auctioneer. What’s more, Jeff Julian of Julian’s DJ Service had the music pumping. A handful of dedicated volunteers worked extremely hard over the last few weeks to pull this event together. In my opinion, it was all about having fun and raising money for a worth-

while organization, and I know the majority of women understand that men are more than just a set of abs. The curling club was packed, and judging by the smiles the event appeared to be triumphant. Earlier this year (May 26) a similar man auction took place at Chuckles Jack restaurant in Smiths Falls in support of the Smiths Falls Community Hospital Foundation. It was an enormous success. The UWoLC recently launched its 2012 fundraising campaign, and a goal of $330,000 was announced. Last year, the organization put $204,000 back into the community. In the region of 8,700 individuals in Lanark County and Smiths Falls used the services of the United Way���s 16 member agencies, which translates into 1 in 9 people.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR The preservation/decline of our heritage This would be built in the midst of our oldest and most historic region on the north side of the town bridge by our founding fathers. The estimated cost of construction is $1.2 million and its size and location would be completely out of character with the area, which would ruin the historical and architectural significance of the surrounding neighbourhood. This beautiful historic, peace-

ful area would be forever changed: what a shame. This parish hall would become more like a community centre. It will lead to increased usage and rental. This will cause increased traffic, parking, problems and noise for the tax paying homeowners in the immediate area who all take great pride in their home and properties. The historical significance

Garbage sticker a tax grab; reader DEAR EDITOR: Editor’s note: The following is in response to the article ‘Carleton Place garbage sticker policy modified’ which appeared in the Oct. 4 edition of the EMC/Canadian Gazette. Let’s call a spade a spade: the “modified” garbage sticker policy is a tax grab. This new policy promotes putting out garbage every week whether you need to or not. The town wanted to reduce waste going to the landfill and residents have responded. Families compost, recycle and compact their garbage. Some residents have been able to “miss” a week because of careful waste management. They were rewarded for their efforts by saving stickers. People donated these stickers to churches for local use. There will be no more stickers for charity in Carleton Place. Why is it a tax grab? If a family is away and they have two bags of garbage on their return, they will now have to ante up for a garbage sticker,

instead of using the one they had from the week before. That sounds like a tax increase to me. At $2 per bag, the increase adds up. Then again those politicians probably don’t think about this as an extra hit to the family budget. I wonder how long has it been since they had to worry about making ends meet? The arguments put forth by Mayor LeBlanc do not hold up under scrutiny. She says that this will be good for the environment. The garbage will still go to the landfill, it is just the town will collect $2 for the extra bag - good for the town coffers. Aren’t our taxes high enough? Then the mayor says that the stickers have been abused by people copying them and cutting them in half. Will the new stickers be tear proof and copy proof? That would make them more expensive wouldn’t it? They still have to print them and sell them. In the end those residents who abused the old system will try to do it

with the new stickers. Those who followed the rules will be punished with the increase in garbage costs. Will we need garbage police? I don’t think the OPP will be lifting prints off the bags. Do we dump the bags at city hall? No it will be another nuisance and expense for those who follow the rules. How about a policy that actually promotes and rewards good waste management? Carleton Place could use the same Garbage Stickers and clear garbage bags as in other municipalities. If there is recyclable material in the bag (newspapers, magazines, plastics) the bags are not picked up. This would promote recycling and reduce landfill costs. That is a win for the town and the environment. The only thing that made sense was the increased charge for appliances and large items. The rest of the “modified” policy just adds up to a tax grab, one bag at a time. A.T. Bickford, Carleton Place

of this area has been duly recognized by virtue of its inclusion in the historic walking tour of the town, which is made available to all interested people and tourists. In the immediate area are as follows: The Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum (1872), which also houses the Hall of Valour that is dedicated to our veterans; the Rosamond House (1834), The Elliot House (1865), Dr. Wilson’s House (1845), St. James Anglican Church (1882). All of these are bordered on one side by the Mississippi River and St. James Park. Would it be better to upgrade and modernize the existing parish hall at a fraction

of the cost? Pave, install lighting and landscape the parking area. Remove all unwanted scrub trees and bushes growing up the sides of the church. This would enable everyone to enjoy this historic old church from all angles. Also the three magnificent old trees standing tall on the corner and hovering over the surrounding area for years would not have to be cut down under this upgrade. I was born and raised on this street (William) 67 years ago and have lived on this same street for 50 of those years. I attended Sunday school classes at the parish hall and was baptized and confirmed Anglican at St. James. I own the building lot di-

rectly across from this proposed hall but over the years I chose not to sell so as to preserve the historic nature and quiet of the area. My grandparents moved here 100 years ago and raised their nine children on the same street. They were also all Anglicans who attended St. James Church. In closing: These changes are unwanted and unnecessary and I would ask that anyone who has concerns or is opposed to these proposed changes please voice their opinion. This is our home, our history and our heritage. Sincerely, Bill Graham Carleton Place

DEAR EDITOR: This letter is to address the proposed construction of a modern non-residential building in the centre of a historic neighbourhood. The building (parish hall) would be located at the corner of William and Edmond Streets in Carleton Place on land owned by St. James Anglican Church and is intended to replace the existing parish hall.

Emergency Department nurses are the face of Almonte General Hospital

and March 2012. More than 7,800 people have been treated in Emergency since the current fiscal year began in April. The department averages 42 visits per day. The Emergency Department volume in 2011-2012 was 27 per cent higher than it was five years earlier. Residents of Mississippi Mills made up 56 per cent, or 8,930, of the patients. The next largest group was from Ottawa, which is only a few minutes down the road. Carleton Place residents made eight per cent of the Emergency visits.

Patients who come to the Emergency Department are categorized according to the Canadian Triage and Acuity Scale (CTAS), which helps the staff prioritize patient care requirements. The CTAS score is a more important factor in deciding who will be seen first (or next) than the time of registration or the order in which people arrive in the Emergency Department. There are five CTAS levels. Level 1, Resuscitation, is the most serious. It describes conditions such as cardiac arrest or major trauma that threatens life or limb. Level 5, Non Urgent, is the least serious; it may be part of a recurring problem or may be milder in nature. An example of this might be a sunburn. Most of the people who visit the Almonte General Hospital Emergency Department are CTAS level 3 or level 4, which are the urgent and semi-urgent categories.

Some readers may find it surprising that the age group with the greatest number of emergency visits is 19 to 34. Seniors, those aged 65 and over, and children aged two to 14 are the next most frequent users of the Emergency Department. Together, these three categories make up 36 per cent of the visits. In 2011-2012, the top 25 most frequent diagnoses for people visiting Emergency included pneumonia, chest and abdominal pain, and low back pain. At the top of the list was acute upper respiratory infection, followed by urinary tract infection. The Emergency Department at Almonte General Hospital is a busy place, treating people of all ages who have a wide variety of illnesses and injuries. The nursing staff responds to life-threatening emergencies and minor injuries with skill and compassion 24 hours per day, 365 days a year. Mary Wilson Trider is the President and CEO of the Almonte General Hospital R0011685979_1018

We are indeed fortunate to live in a free country where the opportunity for a rewarding and fulfilling life is available to each and everyone. One specific group we can thank for our peaceful and secure and free nation is our veterans. It was their sacrifices throughout our proud history that paid the price for our ability to live in the greatest nation on Earth. Each year the members of the Royal Canadian Legion eagerly exercise their most important responsibility by taking part in the annual Poppy Campaign. They do so with glad hearts and a thankful spirit as they treat this event as a sacred trust placed in their care to show true and sincere appreciation to those who gave so much. This tradition allows us to share the thanks we give with you, to over 119,000 Canadian men and women who paid the ultimate price in World War I, World War II, the Korean War, Peacekeeping Missions and Afghanistan. Our operations abroad are bringing new veterans home to their families and communities and to them we pledge the same support and aid we have offered those that have gone before.

EMC Events – Mill workers were the backbone of Almonte for more than 100 years and this weekend they were celebrated. The Mississippi Valley Textile Museum hosted a reunion on Saturday, Oct. 13 at its location. Pictured: (back row, from left) Lloyd Laforce, Paul Laforce, Rejean Vigneault, (front row, from left) Ruth Camelon More, Pat McAuliffe and John More. Some children worked at the Mill, and while most of them started at the legal working age of 14, there were workers as young as 11 on record. Whenever an inspector visited the premises, underage workers were hidden in bobbin bins. No one was ever caught. One mill worker at Saturday’s reunion was 10 years old when he started.

GERTRUDE MAE HUNTER May 2, 1919–October 19, 2011 As the first anniversary of mother’s passing approaches, it provides a suitable opportunity to reflect and thank our relatives, friends, and neighbours who provided support during her illness, at the time of her passing, and the challenging days which followed. It was heart-warming to hear so many kind remembrances of mother and the high esteem in which she was held by so many who attended the visitation and funeral. Mother would have been humbled by the consideration shown by so many of our family’s relatives and friends. Special thanks to those who sent magnificent floral tributes with vibrant colours in the arrangements. These arrangements were in keeping with mother’s love of gardening, especially flowers. Furthermore, the numerous, generous donations to various organizations such as The Ottawa Heart Institute, Maple Vale Cemetery Association, and Trinity United Church were sincerely appreciated and gratefully acknowledged. Sincere appreciation is also extended to those cherished friends who sent cards, called or extended on-line condolences, and brought food to the house. Over the years, mother had complete confidence in her doctors. She owed her longevity to the advice and care given to her by many doctors, especially the late Dr. Archibald Kerr, Dr. Claire Minielly, and Dr. Kevin Mooney. Sincere appreciation is also extended to the dedicated health care professionals at the Ottawa Heart Institute especially Dr. Michael Hartwick, Dr. John Scott and Jenny Lavoie of the palliative care team, Dr. Kathryn Ascah and Dr. Kwan Chan of the cardiology team, Eileen Frattini (Clinical Manager on H5), and all the caring, knowledgeable nurses in CCU and H5. Locally, the nurses from Bayshore and Saint Elizabeth Heath Care provided excellent in-home support. Additional thanks goes to the PSW’s from Red Cross who enabled mother to stay in her home until the final few weeks. Despite mother’s failing health, Bonnie, Angela, Gwen and Karen always managed to make her smile while tending to her needs with care and compassion. Heartfelt thanks is also extended to mother’s cousin, Georgia Allan and her niece, Anita Hunter, who lovingly stayed by her bedside in the final weeks and days. Special thanks to Stephen Blair and his colleagues at Blair and Son Funeral Home (Smiths Falls Chapel) for their guidance, compassion, professionalism, and attention to detail when planning and executing a memorable service of remembrance. Additional gratitude is extended to Rev. Peter Woods for officiating, Marilyne McCaldon, longtime family friends, for her musical talents, Louise Noble for singing a beautiful rendition of mother’s favourite hymn, “In The Garden”, Marion Miller for providing uplifting, soothing music on the harp, Calvin Miller, Maureen Myers, and Anita Hunter for making special contributions during the service, and to Chris Gilbertson who played the final somber tribute, “Amazing Grace”, on the bagpipes at the cemetery. Appreciation is also extended to mother’s nephews, Bob Hawley, George and Gerald Hunter, her great-nephews, Everett and Eldon Hunter, and our longtime neighbour, Ron Banks for acting as pallbearers. Family, friends, and neighbours were important to mother and she would have been honoured by this kind deed. Following the service, the UCW need to be commended for providing a delicious and bountiful lunch which was appreciated and enjoyed by everyone in attendance. Mother was a kind and humble person, a gentle soul, a beloved wife, mother, sister, and aunt whose presence has been greatly missed. Even though she has gone to her eternal home, those of us who are left can appreciate how lucky we were to enjoy her presence for almost 93 years. She leaves behind memories of a lifetime of hard work, dedication, accomplishment, love, honour, and respect. As a mother, she provided guidance, encouragement, and support tempered with advice. For those whose lives she touched, mother will always be remembered and we will continue to draw strength from memories of her lifetime. Sincere thanks, Arden and Perry Hunter

VILLENEUVE - In loving memory of a dear Husband, Father, Father-in-law and Grandpa, Stephen Villeneuve, who passed away October 22, 1999. We can’t forget that fateful day, you had to leave, you went away. A sadness filled us up inside Emotions that we could not hide. Tears they came, sadness too, All our emotions, just for you. Time will heal, so we were told, But time could never fill this hole. Here in our hearts there is a place, You’re always there, keeping us safe. It’s filled with love and happy times, It’s never dark, your light it shines. In Heaven now you do reside To watch over us with love and pride. Love Nancy, Darlene, Pete, Chad, Redeana, Cameron, Aidan and Lachlan

STEPNIAK - In loving memory of our dear parents and grandparents, Marian Stepniak who passed away December 31, 2004 and Marianna Stepniak who passed away October 21, 1991. You are always in our minds, No matter what we do. All the time within our hearts, There are thoughts of you. The most beautiful things in our lives cannot be seen or touched. They must be felt in our hearts. Sadly missed, Dearly loved, Forever in our hearts and prayers. Jan, Susan, Rose Steve, Christine Together Forever

Ottawa Gala shining light on local charity By TIFFANY LEPACK tlepack@perfprint.ca

EMC Events – It’s time to celebrate some amazing people and one amazing local charity. On Oct. 27 the ‘CTV Presents the Amazing People Gala In Support of SchoolBOX’ at the Ottawa Convention Centre is aiming to raise enough money to build a school in Nicaragua and help ‘Make Education Possible.’ Eric Collard, chair of the organizing committee, explained the idea for the event started last summer as he and CTV’s Kimothy Walker were chatting and the idea just came about, he says the stars aligned. Walker has been telling stories about the power of the human spirit since the spring of 2011 every Thursday on CTV News at 6 p.m. “Why don’t we do a gala to highlight all of these amazing people and we can raise enough money to build a school in one night,” said Collard, and the idea was born. At the AP Gala the CTV Amazing Person of the Year (for 2011 and 2012) and the CTV’s Viewers’ Choice Award (you can vote online www.ctvottawa.ca) will be announced. Everyone who has been profiled and up to 800 guests will have the red carpet rolled out for a night of celebration and dancing. “Kimothy and I we want the AP Gala to be fun,” said Collard enthusiastically. “We are highlighting local heroes. There will not be a dry eye in the room, it’s so inspirational. We want people to leave there inspired and full of hope for the next generation.” Collard has been volunteering with SchoolBox for a few years and has been more than impressed by the Almonte char-

ity. “They are a grassroots organization but they are very efficient and everyone is very genuine. They are providing education for people who would not otherwise receive it,” said Collard. “Almonte has such a great spirit and we want to replicate that at the AP Gala.” Tom Affleck, president and founder of SchoolBOX is extremely grateful for the amazing opportunity that has come through the hard work and dedication of both Walker and Collard. “We are so honoured to be a part of this amazing event,” said Affleck. “We look forward to using the success of the event to build a wonderful school for children who need it.” Affleck believes it is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the efforts of some truly amazing people in the community. “These are people who have reached out beyond themselves to touch the lives of others,” said Affleck. “These are outstanding stories of people who have reached so far beyond their abilities to empower others.” Ticket sales are going well with 60 per cent of the tickets already sold with just under a month until the big event. The goal of the event is to raise $50,000 which will have a tremendous impact in Nicaragua. Tickets cost $200 for the VIP individual ticket (includes VIP reception 6-7 p.m., gala, dinner 7-9 p.m., dancing, entertainment and a $100 tax receipt from SchoolBOX) and $150 for the individual ticket (includes gala, dinner, dancing, entertainment and a $75 tax receipt from SchoolBOX).

Columnist says, “I’m A Geek” – a geek for music that is way of describing someone who has a passion for some subject or another. From this definition I am now admitting I am a “live music geek” and proud of it. This all came to light and realization this summer when a friend who MC’s many music festivals was describing one he gladly attends every year as a “geekfest”. Funny how the word took on a far more acceptable tone. It was a guitar festival where the performers are primarily stars you have never heard of; guitarists who have played on many, many award winning recordings you hear regularly on Classic Rock radio. While at the Vancouver Island Musicfest this year I happened to meet one of these star performers few know backstage. Now a noted solo fingerstyle player, Lawrence Juber won his first Grammy playing with Paul McCartney and Wings – Best Rock Instrumental for “Rockestra Theme” from their “Back From the Egg” album (his credit on the album was misspelled as Laurence Tuber) and later another Grammy in 2005 for “Henry Mancini: Pink Guitar” – a compilation of Mancini songs. Obviously no slouch. I knew none of this when I struck up a conversation about musi-

Musical Musings STEVE TENNANT

cian Paul Williams and Juber joined in saying he had played on the music for the movie called ‘Still Alive’ that was much talked about when aired at 2011 TIFF Screenings. A lovely person with a rich legacy of albums, movie scores and awards and few have ever heard of him. When I raised his name I was told he had played the “geekfest” a few years ago. Like I said, who knows this stuff but those who actually read liner notes of recordings do and will search to hear them play live. All performers there are creative genius guitarists and the festival is very well attended primarily by both guitar player geeks wanting to learn new tricks or guitar geek appreciators. A rather eclectic crowd, to say the least. My friends’ “geek-fest” label seems appropriate and got me realizing the whole genre of music I enjoy now would probably fall under a similar label in that when I share the names of those playing at our House Con-

certs or those I seek out to enjoy live are rarely known by most people I know. Acoustic/Folk/Roots style music has fallen below the radar of most music lovers. If it weren’t for CBC Radio we’d be lucky to hear any of it without seeking it out. It’s interesting to read how the folksy sounding, four part harmony, banjo laden British band Mumford and Sons have rekindled the folk style idiom over there, selling millions of recordings. My far better half and I seek opportunities to catch live rootsy performers and will be in our glorious “geekiness” this weekend when we attend the Ontario Council of Folk Festivals Conference in Mississauga. Picture a large hotel converged on by 600 plus musicians all wanting to be heard and booked for upcoming music events throughout the country, north and south of the border. Besides the featured showcases in the ballrooms the most incredible events take place on the two “Mu-

FIND...

sic Floors” where every hotel bedroom is turned into a speakeasy type atmosphere in very creative ways, with different acts playing in each room about every 20 minutes or so from 11 p.m. til 5 a.m., both Friday and Saturday nights. Groups set up in the lobby, stairwells ... wherever they hope to be seen/heard. The 24th Street Wailers, a young blues band from Toronto who played in the lobby last year ended up at Musicfest on Vancouver Island this summer and at several other festivals. They sold 300 CDs at Musicfest alone and are on their way to developing a great fan base across Canada and the States. Its an interesting community and admirable watching the veterans jam and compare notes with newbee’s. I proudly strut my geekiness into the Musicians for Mutts fundraiser for LAWS, Lanark County’s Animal Welfare Society hosted by Kelly Prescott and her mom, Tracey Brown of Family Brown fame last weekend. Kelly Sloan, with her cherubic voice opened with some of her songs and was followed up by Matt Pepin, John Dahms and Ian Clark, whose jam got everyone’s toes tapping. Enter The Claytones

– (Kelly Prescott, Anders Drerrup, Adam Puddington) whose stellar harmonies and musicianship won the room over. I’d just finished drying my eyes from the Claytone’s ballad “Hold On” with Randall Prescott adding sweet harmonica and background vocals when Tracey Brown brought the house down with Etta James’ “At Last”. Topping off the show was everyone joining in on one of my all-time favourite Dylan songs “I Shall Be Released” which brought everyone to their feet. I’ll take that kind of “geekiness” anytime. Coming up ... on Friday, Oct. 26 – 8 p.m. - Music On McLean House Concerts presents – multi-award winning singer/songwriter from Cape Breton, Dave Gunning whose storytelling and songs will have you wishing for more. He’s bringing along Allie Bennett, a fiddler who played with John Allan Cameron, Rita McNeil, The Rankin Family to name a few so it will be a wonderful evening in the back room of the Perth Restaurant. Reserved tickets available at Perth Restaurant or by calling Sue at 613-267-7902. Support live music everywhere.

EMC Entertainment I’ll be 60 next month and when I was growing up, being a “geek” was not an admirable trait socially. In school they typically were the “chess club” gang who didn’t/couldn’t play sports etc but as computers evolved and became what seems now to be an essential part of our day to day life, what used to be the “computer geek”, complete with pocket protector seems to have dramatically moved up in social status. Luddites like myself need these folk to keep us at least partially connected to our ever increasing digital world and have learned a new respect for their skills, thereby seeing them in a new, more acceptable light. Through this evolution hopefully we’ve become more accepting of others who have differences in their interests and passions. Merriam-Webster’s third definition (after the first which is: a carnival performer often billed as a wild man whose act usually includes biting the head off a live chicken or snake ) defines “geek” as: “an enthusiast or expert especially in a technological field or activity ie: ‘computer geek’” but the word seems to be used more and more as a

Dark-eyed Juncos come down from the North EMC Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Happy post Thanksgiving, with Monday being a beautiful day. Deciduous colours were grand â&#x20AC;&#x201C; gold, yellow, orange, red, with the green of conifers blending throughout the scene. Since autumn is with us, Dark-eyed Juncos have come down from the north. Around our property, Cliff Bennett reports lots of them on Oct. 4 and 5. Moving down to Carleton Place, a pair of Northern Cardinals with 3 youngsters were coming to Pat Schoulerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s feeders, Oct. 5. In the last week, Brian McGruther has had both Downy and Hairy Woodpeckers coming to his feeders. Even 1 Pileated Woodpecker came to enjoy the suet feeder. Lots of Juncos came as well. Cardinals were feeding, plus all the other usual visitors. In the Arklan area, Linda Johnston had a Northern Sawwhet Owl crash into her patio door, Oct. 9. Linda rescued it, and kept it sheltered for 20

minutes, then it was able to fly off. Also in Carleton Place, Mike Jaques has had the first Fox Sparrow returnee in his yard Oct. 9. Instead of Thanksgiving dinner at home, we spent the day in Algonquin Provincial Park. Both of us thought weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d forgotten cameras, and what pictures of sun on the hills in early morning we could have taken. To and from the park, we tallied 22 species. In the actual park, 15 species put on a show. Black-capped Chickadees were first greeters, followed by calling Red-breasted Nuthatches. In the distance we heard a Common Raven. Driving along Opeongo Road, 3 Great Blue Herons were busy fishing. At the dock by the store, 25 Ring-billed Gulls slept. Out on the water, a juvenile Common Loon changing into adult plumage swam, while 3 American Robins flitted among the trees. On the road past Costello pic-

Gesner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everything looks and tastes so good.â&#x20AC;? Entries were scored on apple essence, apple smell, eye appeal and overall taste. Points were awarded on a scale of one (lowest) to five (highest). Submissions were as follows: almond apple torte, apple blossoms, apple dumplings, apple pie, apple strudel, autumn apple crisp, baked apples with whipped cream, cheesy apple torte, honey caramel apple bundt cake, oatmeal apple cookies and upside down apple cake.

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The fourth annual Apple Bake Off at Waterside Retirement Community (WRC) in Carleton Place on Wednesday, Sept. 12 was a recipe for success. Eleven (11) amateur chefs entered their best apple-themed desserts in the competition. The contest was open to both WRC members and Carleton Place residents. The affair, held in the facilityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s craft kitchen, helped celebrate the most colourful season of the year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; fall. Judging honours went to WRC resident Edwina Eddy, EMC reporter Tara Gesner, and WRC food and beverage manager Jim Whelan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a joy to judge,â&#x20AC;? Eddy said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and what a variety of dishes.â&#x20AC;?

nic area, we stopped to feed Chickadees, Blue Jays, and had a surprise visit by a Gray Jay. Many White-crowned Sparrows were there, plus 1 White-throated Sparrow. In Two Rivers campground, 20 Common Grackles brought our total species to 15. Please call Lynda: 613256-5013, or email: bennett@ magma.ca, with bird reports.

According to Alison Lunn, WRCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lifestyles manager, the apple bake off is an excellent, fun way to engage community members. Prizes were handed out to the top three finishers. Top honours went to WRCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s culinary department for its apple blossoms. There was a tie for second place â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a first in the history of the bake off. The autumn apple crisp, created by Carleton Place resident Bev Smith, earned the same amount of points as the apple pie from the Log Cabin Apple Orchard, which is located in Osgoode. Lunn and her lifestyle assistant, Kelsey Ryan, thanked all the bakers. A large number of WRC members attended the event and were given the chance to sample each entry. R0011687081_1018

Carl Keenan has joined 11 other veterans who were wounded or suffered an illness while serving in the military for an expedition to climb Island Peak, a 6,189-metre mountain in the Himalayas near Mount Everest. The foundation raises money for programs like the Military Families Fund, which provides emergency assistance to the families of soldiers. For more information about the charity visit www.truepatriotlove.com. Keenan, who is now a constable with the Ottawa police,

Further information contact Bernie Duffen @ 613-283-7790 The MasoniCh.I.P. Child ID Program is brought exclusively to Ontario families by dedicated Masons free of charge. It consists of five major components – vital child information, digital fingerprints, digital photographs, video and an Intra Oral Swab for DNA. All of this data is burned onto a CD, and given to the parents or guardian. Security and privacy are of the utmost importance; therefore, it is significant to note that nothing is kept on file, with the exception of the permission form signed by the parent, prior to participation in the event. It is our sincerest hope that no family will need the resource provided in our kits, but if the need should arise, we believe the information that we provide from our program will be instrumental to law enforcement agencies in the recovery of any missing children. It only takes 1 minute and 42 seconds from the time the CD-Rom is loaded into the Police computer for the AMBER ALERT broadcast to be sent throughout North America.

EMC News – A Carleton Place man has been selected to join a team of Canadian veterans attempting to summit Island Peak, a 6,189-metre mountain in the Himalayas this month. Carl Keenan will join 11 other veterans who were wounded or suffered an illness while serving in the military. Keenan was injured while serving in Afghanistan from 2007-08 as a member of the Canadian Forces Protective Services Unit, providing security for generals and other V.I.P.s. During his final week of his tour of duty, Keenan stepped on a piece of broken glass. The soldier pulled the glass out and tended to his foot himself, as he didn’t want to be sent home before the other members of his six-man team. When Keenan returned home he discovered he needed surgery to remove pieces of glass still stuck in his foot. Keenan’s marriage ended soon after his return. “I have close personal friends who have battled PTSDs (post traumatic stress disorder) and I have friends who have suffered wounds in the military,” said Keenan. “There’s always the concern, is there life after the military?” The March to the Top climb was organized by True Patriot Love, a national foundation that supports current and retired members of the military as well as their families. The expedition, made up of 12 veterans and eight donors, is raising money and awareness for the foundation. A documentary filmed by CBC will follow the veterans as they arrived in Kathmandu, Nepal, earlier this month, on Oct. 7 and began a monthlong trek to Mount Everest base camp before attempting to summit Island Peak.

TIPS AND ADVICE FROM OUR LOCAL EXPERTS! HELP DEFEAT THE NUMBER 1 KILLER OF TEENAGERS State Farm® and Project Ignition offering $2,000 grants for high schools to address teen driver safety Aurora, Ontario. October 02, 2012. – Car crashes are the number 1 killer of teenagers in Canada and the United States.* Young people, in partnership with teachers and communities, can change this staggering fact through Project Ignition — a student-led teen driver safety program funded by State Farm and coordinated by the National Youth Leadership Council (NYLC) ®. Now in its ninth year, Project Ignition offers grants to students and their advisors interested in creating impactful awareness campaigns focused on teen driver safety while using servicelearning — a teaching method that combines meaningful community service with classroom instruction. Youth-led teams host events, form community-wide partnerships, produce public service announcements, and more. “It’s unacceptable that vehicle collisions are the leading cause of death amongst teens in Canada; for the most part car crashes are completely avoidable,” says John Bordignon, Media Relations with State Farm. “Service learning initiatives like this help teens to educate and empower their peers about the perils and distractions associated with driving.” How to Apply: High schools in North America are invited to get involved in Project Ignition by applying for a grant, available at www.sfprojectignition.com. Deadline for applications is Thursday, November 15, 2012. "˜ViÊ >««ˆV>̈œ˜ÃÊ >ÀiÊ ÀiViˆÛi`\ Twenty-five schools will be chosen to receive $2,000 grants to implement their campaigns from January to April 2013. Ten of these schools will be given the opportunity to receive an additional $2,500 to go deeper with their campaigns during the 2013-2014 school year. These ten schools will also receive an additional $5,000 to support their participation in a significant national conference or event organized by NYLC. *Statistics Canada and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

FALL LAWN FEEDING Manufacturers of lawn fertilizer deliver confusing and seemingly contradictory messages about fall lawn feeding. Fertilizer is usually described by 3 numbers on the bag. These numbers indicate the amounts of Nitrogen, Phosphorous and Potassium in the fertilizer. Each element plays a unique role in the health of a plant. Nitrogen pushes green top growth, phosphorous aids in rooting and flowering, while potassium contributes to hardiness and vigour. The So Green company offers a ‘fall fertilizer’ with the analysis of 12-14-22. Scotts Turf Builder, on the other hand, is a 32-0-10 blend. How can they both be considered for feeding a lawn in fall? The answer is in the timing. In early fall (September) the turf is still growing actively and will be ‘toughened up’ by the uptake of larger amounts of phosphorous and potassium. But by now, in late October, you are feeding a dormant lawn. The nutrient will not be used until the lawn wakes up in spring. To have your lawn ready to go with the first warm days of spring, you should be considering a dormant feed with Scotts 32-0-10 sometime in the next couple of weeks.

JPEG VS TIFF THAT IS THE QUESTION? Now that you have all those beautiful shots of the fall leaves and want to show them off you may find yourself doing a little editing on your computer and re-saving your precious images. Did you know that every time you save a JPEG file (lossy file) it compresses and you lose data that will permanently effect image quality? When you save your original file save as a TIFF (lossless file) and your file will not automatically compress. Go ahead, play with your file and keep saving it as a TIFF without degrading it. If you need a smaller file to Email just save as one last time as a JPEG. One more thing, save a copy of your original, you never know when you might want to go back to it.

Local seniors win silver at the 2012 Canada Games EMC Sports - District 7 A Senior Games Association was well represented this August in the Canada 55+ Games in Sydney, Nova Scotia. Two Slo-Pitch Ball teams from here, both titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;the Huntley Draughtsâ&#x20AC;? played in the 55+ category and the 65+ age group. The younger age group was required to have some women on their team. They played

several games, defeating the Yukon, but failed to make the playoffs. The 65+ team played 7 games in 4 days losing in the championship game to Winnipeg who were undefeated during the tournament. It is quite an honour for the local players to bring home silver medals. They are proud to report 11 players batted .500 or better.

Everyone enjoyed the camaraderie and entertainment featuring Rita McNeil and the Men of the Deeps.

Plans are already underway to play in the 2014 Canada Games in Edmonton AB so contact Roy Daley at (613)-

Canadians split weekend games with Hawkesbury; Clarke counting on more consistency from players EMC Sports - Carleton Place Canadians are in the thick of the early season jockeying for the top positions in the very tight Central Canada Hockey League (CCHL) standings. But after splitting their weekend games against Robinson Division rival Hawkesbury Hawks, head coach and general manager Jason Clarke is looking for more consistency from his troops. “We need to find some consistency in order to improve our game,” Clarke told the EMC Monday. “The puck is finding its way into our goal far too easily. If we don’t become more consistent, especially at the back, we are in danger of being a .500 hockey club,” the veteran bench boss says. Canadians have yielded 43 goals in 14 games which ties them with two other teams (Ottawa and Brockville) for second best in the league in goals against. Nepean Raiders have the best mark with 40 goals scored against them in 14 outings. But the defensive record isn’t good enough for Clarke! “We need to be a lot better defensively. “It comes down to the kids working shift by shift, period by period and becoming more consistent.” On the offensive side Clarke is happier with what he is seeing at present. Although Carleton Place is more challenged this year when it comes to goal scoring, all four lines have been contributing

to date and that makes the coach happy. “We’re averaging four goals a game and if that continues we should be alright. We’re outshooting most of our opponents.” Clarke is happy to see the goal scoring distributed more evenly this year instead of two or three players carrying the load. “I think we are a little deeper this season. But it is still very early. We’ll see how things shape up as the season unfolds.” Sunday afternoon on home ice Canadians went one goal higher than their season average, topping visiting Hawkesbury 5-2 for their ninth win in 14 starts. The previously high flying Smiths Falls Bears were edged 4-3 by Cumberland Grads in Navan Sunday meaning Canadians were just three points behind the Robinson Division and league leaders heading into this week. With 18 points Carleton Place stood second in the division and fourth overall in the 12-team CCHL. Division rival Cornwall Colts and Kanata Stallions of the Yzerman Division is just one point behind Canadians although both clubs had played one more game heading into this week’s action. Pembroke Lumber Kings have 16 points in the Yzerman while the improving Brockville Braves are fourth in the Robinson with 15 points from 13 games. Nepean charging The division leaders in the CCHL are looking over their shoulders at the moment.

That’s because the defending champion Nepean Raiders are charging up the standings! Sunday Raiders fell 6-5 in a shootout to Cornwall Colts, who Nepean edged out in the maximum seven games in last spring’s CCHL championship series. But with at least one point from each of their last seven games the champions are now third overall in the league. Tuesday they were just a single point behind Yzerman Division leading Ottawa Junior Senators. Ottawa dropped only their second game in eight outings Sunday night, falling 2-1 to the previously slumping Lumber Kings in Pembroke. At Carleton Place and District Community Centre Sunday, Canadians rebounded from the Friday night loss in Hawkesbury, winning 5-2. A pair of third period goals by left winger Kevin Dufour sealed it for Carleton Place (9-5). Dufour, a 20-year-old from Beaufort, Quebec took over the team lead in scoring with 16 points including nine goals in 12 games. He also assisted on defenceman Larry Smith’s second period tally which turned out to be the game winner. Anthony McVeigh with an unassisted strike and Nick Erb staked Canadians to an early lead. Carl Faucher replied for the visitors late in the first and Shane Topf briefly tied it just past the midway mark of period two. Veteran Canadians’ defenceman Christian Weidauer set up a pair for the winners while left winger Brandon

24th ANNUAL

Bussey chipped in with two assists for Hawks. Carleton Place outshot Hawkesbury 32-26 in the well-played game. Winning goalie Tony Kujava kicked out 24 shots to level his record at 2-2. A recent nemesis returned to haunt Canadians Friday. In their first meeting of the season Hawks, who are in fifth place in the six-team Robinson Division, defeated the second place Carleton Place side. Last March fifth place Hawkesbury famously swept the fourth place Canadians out of the opening round of the playoffs. And just as he did during the playoffs last March it was Hawks’ goalie Carmine Guerriero who spoiled the night for the visi-

tors Friday! He was nothing short of spectacular making 56 saves as Canadians outshot Hawkesbury 57-31 and held a wide edge in territorial play. Guerriero’s heroics gave Hawkesbury their fourth consecutive Friday night win on home ice and lifted them over Kemptville at the foot of the division. Monday those two clubs were tied with 10 points apiece. The first period was scoreless Friday, despite the fact Carleton Place poured 17 shots at Guerriero. Three goals in a span of less than 12 minutes in the middle stanza effectively sealed the win for Hawkesbury. The fourth Hawks’ goal was scored by Francis Landers into the empty Carleton

Place cage with five seconds remaining. Faucher, Topf and Pietro Antonelli had the second period tallies. Defenceman Holden Anderson assisted on all three. Luke Edwards broke up Guerriero’s shutout bid with his fourth goal for Carleton Place at 8:12 of the final frame. Tuesday night the locals visited Kanata. Tomorrow (Friday) Canadians take on the Braves in Brockville in the first meeting of the division rivals this season. Game-time at Brockville Memorial Centre is 7:30 p.m. Sunday afternoon at 3 o’clock Cornwall will be the visitors at community centre. Next Wednesday night (Oct. 24) Carleton Place faces a challenge when they travel

Shane Billings finishes fifth overall in go-kart season By TIFFANY LEPACK tlepack@perfprint.ca

EMC Sports – Racing is in his blood. This instinct is helping Shane Billings move up in the world of go-karting. Billings recently finished his season at the Brockville Speedway, finishing in fifth place in the go-kart stock division with 634 points. This is his third year racing and his best overall finish yet; previously he finished ninth and eighth. He finished second three times this season on July 11, July 25 and Aug. 22. “It was the first time I finished second, I still haven’t got a first place finish yet,” said Billings. “That will happen next year.” He is already looking to next year with hopes to finish in the top three overall and that coveted first place finish. He also hopes to travel and race on different tracks to gain more experience.

Racer Shane Billings stands beside the trophies he won this year in go-kart racing at the Brockville Speedway. He is very proud of this year’s accomplishments. He is thankful for the

support he has received from his sponsors, family, friends, pit crew and his

fans. “It went pretty good, better than my first two years,”

said Billings, now in Grade 11 at Notre Dame Catholic High School, in Carleton Place. “I’ve learned a lot this year especially with the help of my cousin Matt.” Billings also explained he has learned a lot this year on the specifics of the track and his cart. “I’ve learned how to drive the track without steering the wheel too much and that I need to keep the wheel in a constant circle,” said Billings. “I’ve learned much more about my cart, the tire stagger and air pressures which help get me around the track.” In November, he will travel to North Carolina to finish the last in class portion of his racing scholarship in the Race 101 program. He is also excited for the opportunity to race in a stock car at the Hickory Motor Speedway in North Carolina.

His next step is to raise enough money to move up to the next level. He hopes to be there within the next two years. For now his focus in the off-season will be rebuilding and cleaning his cart as well as hustling to prepare for the new season this Spring. He is extremely grateful for the support of his sponsors who have helped him with everything from new tires to a new website. “I don’t think I could have done it without the support of my sponsors,” said Billings. “I want to give them a big thank you and I am looking for more sponsors for next year.” Anyone who is interested in becoming a sponsor is encouraged to contact Billings via e-mail: shanebillingsracing22@gmail.com or for more information visit: www.shanebillingsracing22.ca.

Chlorella is one of the oldest forms of plant life on earth. It is a genuine whole superfood. It has the highest chlorophyll content of any known plant which gives it a deep rich green colour. Chlorophyll helps your body in so many ways. It helps you process more oxygen, helps purify your blood and get rid of toxins including mould. ScientiÂżcally, Chlorella is known as a single-celled freshwater microscopic algae. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cells are round in shape and almost the same size as human red blood cells. Chlorella has many clinically proven health beneÂżts. It has the remarkable ability to detoxify, energize, nourish and balance all of the bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s systems for optimal function. No other plant grows as fast as Chlorella. Because it is such a nutrient-dense whole food that ensures you are obtaining all of your dietary needs, it has been studied extensively as a food for the future as our world population rapidly expands beyond our food production capabilities. There are thousands of research papers on chlorella from medical institutions, universities and scientiÂżc journals.

Chlorella is excellent for vegetarians due to its B-12 content and wide range of amino acids. The high level of amino acids ensures optimal healing and recovery to muscles and joints which makes it a great food supplement for all types of athletes and bodybuilders. Many people report that taking chlorella before meals acts like an appetite suppressant, likely because it contains such a wide variety of nutrients and Âżber so it will satisfy our nutritional needs and therefore, our appetite is reduced. One of the most amazing things about chlorella is the growth-stimulating activity of a substance called Chlorella Growth Factor. It is a complex chemical substance responsible for the rapid growth rate of chlorella, which quadruples about every 20 hours. Formed in the nucleus, this growth factor, when taken orally, stimulates tissue repair even in damaged or ulcerated tissues. Chlorella contains high levels of healing and antiaging factors. It has rich stores of complete protein and provides ca
