Notre Dame receives $3,000 S’Cool Life grant

Inside

By TARA GESNER tgesner@perfprint.ca

EMC News – The music department at Notre Dame Catholic High School (NDCHS) in Carleton Place has been awarded a $3,000 grant from S’Cool Life Fund (SLF). “We are always in need of funding,” said music teacher Tony Stuart, who applied for the financial support. Every year SLF supports DREAMS (drama, recreation, extra-curricular, arts, music and sports) in schools across Canada. Stuart received the good news about a month ago from principal Dave Chaplin. The money has purchased a vibraphone – a percussion instrument resembling the xylophone but having metal bars and motor-driven resonators for sustaining the tone and producing a vibrato. “I am thrilled,” said Stuart,

EMC News – Arklan Community Public School was hit with a Latin infusion as five students from Colombia visited the school for the past two months through a program with the Upper Canada District School Board. The students were members of Kate Thurston, Jodi Storie and Heather Strachan’s Grade 5 and 6 classes. The visitors stayed with local families and were immersed in Canadian culture participating in all activities the Arklan students did. At a farewell party Nov. 29, the students (Samuel Vieira, David Valencia, Sara Sanin, Andrew Cruz and Laura Restrepo) and Christina Arroyare (teacher) took one last bite out of Canada in the form of a delicious maple leaf cookie.

EMC Events – It’s Christmas time in Mississippi Mills. This weekend, Dec. 7 to 9, will be busy for residents with the annual Light Up The Night (LUTN) event kicking things off on Friday night from 7 to 9 p.m. in downtown Almonte. “It becomes a magical downtown,” said Nancy Fulton, LUTN chair. “It’s the kickoff to the Christmas season. The lights are beautiful, the stage is lit up, the fireworks are amazing and the entertainment is fantastic.” The fun doesn’t stop there as the Pakenham parade is set for Dec. 8 at 1 p.m. and the Almonte parade is Dec. 9 at 5 p.m. There is sure to be something for everyone on the LUTN stage with hosts Mark Papousek and Gail Gavin and performances by Cedarhill Children’s Choir, Seamus Costello, Mike Ryan, Blackwell, Brad Scott, Kelly Sloan, Jordan McIntosh, The Allan Martin Puppets, Trish Leeper, My Town’s Got Talent 2012 winner Alexander Cox and The Almonte Academy of Dance featuring The Snow Queen and Twinkle

Fairies. “All the music is Christmas orientated,” said Fulton. “Everything comes together and it’s the most magical show.” Last, year thousands of people came out for the event, which also includes the lighting of a Christmas tree symbolizing the community’s attachment to the Almonte General Hospital Fairview Manor. “I absolutely love the event,” said Fulton who has been volunteering since the first LUTN. “It’s a family event and it brings the community together. The man in red will also be making a special appearance. “The Snow Queen waves her magic wand and Santa arrives at the end of the show,” promised Fulton. “He does hang around at the end if anyone wants to chat.” LUTN was founded by popular singer Wayne Rostad in 1991 and this is only the second year that he is unable to attend, passing hosting duties to Papousek and Gavin “Everyone hears Mark on the radio (Y101) and he’s a great personality,” said Fulton. “Gail is a really bubbly

performer and will certainly bring excitement to the stage.” The event, now in its 22nd year always has tremendous support from the Town of Mississippi Mills and local businesses. New this year is special LUTN mittens, which are on sale at Levi Home Hardware, Almonte Old Town Hall, the Pakenham and Almonte arenas, and look for them Friday night for only $15. As it is a community event, sponsored by businesses and the town, there will be opportunities to cover the cost of the annual festivities by purchasing a LUTN calendar at local businesses and the McMillan’s Sand and Gravel Ladies Broomball team will be collecting donations. Fulton is ever thankful of her volunteer committee and says it would not be possible without them: Tiffany MacLaren, Robin Moir, Yvonne Stewart, Scott Newton, Gerry Huddleston, Don Willey and Calvin Murphy. There will be a collection for the Lanark County Food Bank and the Boy Scouts and Civitan members will have hot chocolate available. For additional information, visit www.lightupthe-

EMC News - Dec. 6 is the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women in Canada and tonight, the Lanark County Interval House is hosting a vigil tonight in Perth at Stewart Park starting at 6 p.m.

“This is a day to remember the women who were murdered at l’École Polytechnique in 1989,” said Brianne Luckasavitch, public education coordinator at Lanark County Interval House. “We will also honor the women of Lanark County who have been murdered by their abusers.”

LCIH will welcome Perth’s mayor John Fenik as well as Erin Lee Todd, who is the executive director of Lanark County Interval House. There will also be words of encouragement from an abused survivor from the community. Todd says the vigil will

OPP challenges Ontarians to make holiday season a safe and sober one on roads EMC news - With Ontarians starting to head out for social outings in celebration of the upcoming holiday season, the OPP is pulling out all stops to take impaired drivers off roads between now and the new year. The OPP is conducting its annual Festive RIDE campaign until Jan. 2, and people

are being reminded that RIDE stops will be very visible throughout the campaign. According to the OPP, 61 people have died in alcoholrelated motor vehicle collisions within OPP jurisdiction so far this year. T his number is up by more than 17 per cent when compared to the 52 people who

lost their lives in impaired driving collisions by this time last year (2011) and the OPP is taking this increase in fatalities seriously. The OPP’s highway safety division commander said last year’s numbers were up over the previous RIDE season. “People can expect to see us ramp up our enforcement

over the holidays to put a stop to this life-threatening driving behaviour,” said Chief Supt. Don Bell in a press release. The OPP invites members of the public to join them on Facebook to share their views about impaired driving and the OPP’s Festive RIDE campaign.

whose lives ended in an act of gender-based violence that shocked the nation, Dec. 6 represents an opportunity for Canadians to reflect on the phenomenon of violence against women in our society. It is also an opportunity to consider the women and girls for whom violence is a daily reality, and to remember those who have died as a result of gender-based violence. And finally, it is a day on which communities can consider concrete actions to eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls.

EMC News - The Classroom Portal Expansion has taken the top prize at Applied Research Day 10.2! “It is an honour to take home first place at Applied Research Day,” says Nitec President Malcolm McDowell. “We had many worthy competitors today and wish them continued success. The Classroom Portal Expansion will enhance the communication between Algonquin College faculty and their students and we were proud to play a role in its development. Our thanks to Algonquin College for hosting this competition, and to the Office of Applied Research and Innovation for their assistance in launching this project.” The Classroom Portal Expansion came in first out of the 19 projects which competed in the thrice annual Applied Research and Innovation competition. It is an application which professors can use to easily and remotely post class changes and other information to a screen near the door of their classrooms. An Interpretive Book of the Indigenous Tree and Shrub species in the Ottawa Valley, which was created for the Algonquin Way Cultural Centre in Pembroke, finished second, while a Geological Field Data Collection system developed for Natural Resources Canada rounded out the top three. “Applied Research connects students, faculty, entrepreneurs and established organizations to build businesses that are equipped for success,” says Dr. Mark Hoddenbagh, Director, Applied Research and Innovation at Algonquin College. “The 19 projects that were on display today will create local jobs, strengthen the economy, and solve problems through innovation and creative new thinking. We’re proud to celebrate their success and wish to congratulate NiTec, the Algonquin Way Cultural Centre,

A close-up of the wreckage after the Almonte train wreck on Dec. 27, 1942.

Remembering the Almonte Train Wreck 70 years later By TIFFANY LEPACK tlepack@perfprint.ca

EMC Lifestyle - The Almonte Gazette was on the scene 70 years ago recording the history of the Almonte train wreck. It reported the details of what then was considered the second worst railway disaster in the history of Canadian railroading on Dec. 27, 1942. The wreck killed 36 people and injured more than 200; the current memorial in Almonte has the names of 39

deceased as three more died after the crash. The Gazette sets the scene of the aftermath: “The condition of many of the victims was horrible in the extreme, some of them being mutilated beyond description. The injured suffered all sorts of dreadful wounds including fractures where the bone had burst through the flesh; body wounds and head wounds that cannot be described.” Crash investigated The scene was the result of

a crash between the Canadian Pacific Railway Ottawa Valley Local Train – which started in Pembroke, and was crowded with Christmas holiday travellers – and a troop train loaded with soldiers from across the country headed to Halifax for overseas duty. The Gazette followed the inquest closely in the weeks after the crash. The first witness was Joseph Sauve who

was an engineer on the local that fateful night. He admitted that he was running late as it had taken 42 minutes to come from Arnprior to Almonte when it should have taken 28 minutes. “But the weather was bad and the traffic heavy. There was a little trouble with the engine as a result of a leaking flue. This developed after the train left Cobden on the down journey and it did not get any worse from that time on,” quoted The Gazette. He also stated that he did not know the troop train was

coming behind him. It was also uncovered that there was no way to notify the troop train at Pakenham because there was no operator on duty at night. Interest of the inquest was ‘quickened’ when word was received that John C. Howard, the 64 year-old Conductor who had been in charge of the troop train that night, tragically died. “He committed suicide by drowning himself in the Rideau River at Smiths Falls…his case was particularly pathetic as he leaves an invalid wife.” The Gazette published his suicide note and had interviewed his son Delmar.

“He was afraid an attempt was being made to pin it on him.” The conductor on the Local, M.P. McConnell of Ottawa, testified that he left Petawawa at 5:35 p.m. on time and he also revealed he did not know the troop train was behind him. The troop train was considered an extra train and was held at Arnprior to make the 20-minute block time that was required in between trains. This miscommunication between the stations and the trains caused the ultimate demise to three train cars and the 36 people. “Witnesses of the accident hastened to do what they

could for the unfortunates trapped under the debris of the coaches,” stated The Gazette. “The fire siren was sounded and members of the brigade and those spectators, who always attended fires, rushed to the scene… Outside of a bad shaking up there were no casualties in the coaches forward of the three that had been crushed by the gigantic locomotive.” A verdict in the inquest came back on Jan. 9 by a coroner’s jury at the Almonte Town Hall on the Saturday afternoon. “The jury placed the responsibility for the disaster squarely on the shoulders of

the Canadian Pacific Railway Company and made a number of recommendations which, if carried out, are calculated to prevent a recurrence of such an accident as happened here.” Injured Victims were rushed to the nearby O’Brien Theatre, the Town Hall, private homes and the Rosamond Memorial Hospital. Three local doctors: J.K. Kelly, J.F. Dunn and A.A. Metcalfe were helped by ‘medical men’ from local towns including John McEwen, C.R. MacDowall and J.A. Johnston from Carleton Place, Dr. W.W Buttle from Pakenham, Dr. Robert Mc-

Creary and Dr. Box from Arnprior and Doctors Hogan, Kerfoot, Walker and Ferguson from Smiths Falls. Clergymen of Almonte were at the scene early and gave the last rites to those who required it. Town Hall became a morgue with 30 deceased being placed in the basement. Bodies were also laid in the council chambers.

tea and coffee to the injured, the firemen who did a great service, to the soldiers and all those participating in the work of the rescue.” One local lady gave a very practical gift to the injured as she brought several bottles of liquor to the town hall. The Gazette later received a letter of appreciation from a young lady in Ottawa who had stayed at Dr. Joseph Teich’s home. She sent back the coats that she had used and thanked him for all he did. “I hope your nerves didn’t suffer too much after that episode and also hope you didn’t have too much work cleaning up the house afterwards… I suppose Almonte’s atmosphere is still pretty morbid. Those things are hard to forget, but I do hope that before long you will all be quite happy and carefree once more.” She also enclosed coffee and sugar as she thought their rations must be ‘nigh exhaustion.’

Doreen Wilson, volunteer manager of the North Lanark Regional Museum, thinks it is important to remember this very significant event in Almonte’s history. “It’s very much the history and lifestyle of years gone by,” said Wilson. “The historical society wanted to keep the history alive. It’s a lot of history and if someone doesn’t record it, it’s lost history.” Check out next week’s edition for an interview with the last known survivor of the train wreck, Ed Muldoon, who grew up in Fitzroy Harbour, boarded the train in Arnprior.

Algonquin, Queen’s and Carleton partner for solar project

Are you new to the neighbourhood? Had a baby? Planning a wedding? We have free gifts and information for you.

“The top 5 would be great...but we want to win.� JACOB MORGAN TEAM ONTARIO

“We learned of the [project’s] acceptance the last week of January [2012], and had a meeting the next day,� Morgan said, adding that working on the Decathlon project is an honour and gives him “the chance to work at a higher level on chain of command than I would be able to.� TO named their project design “ECHO,� a play on the phrase “Ecological Home.� The ECHO home is currently under construction at the Algonquin College Perth Campus. The 960 square foot bungalow was designed to house a couple with one child and will feature an exostructure where solar panels will be mounted. With an eye towards transportability, the home is a two piece modular construction. The ECHO home will use a unique method of storing the solar energy gathered from the solar panels. Morgan explained TO decided to use water to store the electricity, as opposed to batteries as is most commonly used for electrical storage, claiming, “solar power stored in hot water can release more slowly and store more energy.� Other unique features include the use of Panasonic’s innovative Vacuum Insulated Panels (VIP) which are cur-

Students from Algonquin College’s Advanced Housing Program have been working on the construction of the ECHO home since September. The project is expected to be completed in April 2013. Morgan feels they could be at a disadvantage because this is their first entry in the competition and they will be competing against other schools that have had multiple entries, and more experience with the competition. Despite the challenges for winning the competition, Morgan said he feels good about their chances. He reiterated TO’s goal: “We want to create an eco-friendly, sustainable house to build on in the future. We’re not trying to reinvent the wheel; we’re taking what people have done in the past and built on it.â€? “The top 5 would be great,â€? he added, â€œâ€Śbut we want to win.â€? Construction on ECHO is expected to be completed in April 2013, following which it will be showcased at the Algonquin College Perth Campus before beginning its trek across the continent.

rently only available commercially and the specially designed integrated mechanical system. Each of Panasonic’s halfinch insulation panels has a rating of R30 and the ECHO home uses two-half inch panels in addition to other insulation. When complete, the walls in ECHO home will have a minimum R-value of 60 while the roof will be a minimum R70. Typical construction in Ontario is an R28 value for walled construction and R50 for a roof. Morgan called the ventilation system used in the home “predictive.� “It’s a little smarter than we are,� he laughed, “We needed a good ventilation system to handle the insulation.� When completed, the total cost for the project will be approximately one million dollars, with the transport to California and back costing roughly $200,000. So far Team Ontario’s Business Manager has worked to raise more than $400,000 and there have been other in-kind donations of materials and insulation, including a donation of over $54,000 from Panasonic in insulation. Each participating institution has also made contributions. Morgan will be one of the only TO members who will be present for the duration of the event in California. As Construction Manager, he will be responsible for the set up and take down of the home and giving tours to explain aspects of the construction. He will also be traveling with the home as it makes its way on a flat bed trailer from Canada to California. Morgan explained that Team Ontario has several advantages and disadvantages weighing against it. According to Morgan, the team’s composition of representatives from three different institutions is unique. In addition, Morgan added, Algonquin College is essentially a subcontractor for the build of the home, making it literally a home that can be built by students.

Morgan explained that every executive member has been putting in thirty to forty hours a week over and above their school commitments.

What started as a long shot for entry into a global competition has turned into the opportunity of a lifetime for students from Algonquin College, Queen’s, and Carleton Universities. Student representatives from the three institutions have partnered to form “Team Ontario,� embarking on a challenge to create a “net zero� structure for entry in the Solar Decathlon in California in 2013. The Solar Decathlon is a United States Department of Energy (DOE) biennial competition held in California. Between Oct. 3 and Oct. 13, 2013, the DOE will host 20 collegiate teams from around the world as they compete to design, build and operate solar powered houses that are simultaneously cost effective, energy efficient and aesthetically appealing. The winner of the competition will be the team that best blends affordability, consumer appeal and design excellence with optimal energy production and maximum efficiency. The purpose of the event is to demonstrate that net zero solar homes are not only possible, but can be affordable and attractive. A net zero home is a home that consumes as much energy as it creates. Team Ontario (TO) consists of representatives from Algonquin College, Carleton University and Queen’s University. It is represented by a board of six executive members and three faculty advisors. The executive members are comprised of students from all fields of study, including an Architect Manager, Business Manager, Construction Manager, Project Manager, Engineer Manager and Systems Coordinator. Jacob Morgan, Team Ontario Construction Manager and second year Algonquin College Advanced Housing student, explained the concept for the project began several years ago as a fourth year engineering project at Queen’s University. An application was drafted for the 2011 Solar Decathlon, submitted, but ultimately rejected when it ranked 24th out of 150 entries to the competition. Only the top 20 entries are accepted for the competition. When applications reopened for the 2013 Decathlon, the Queen’s University application was “tweaked� and submitted for consideration, and ultimately, accep-

Family fun remembered fondly

Stay safe on roads this holiday season

EMC Sports - This picture of the Barr family ball team was taken in 1962 during the Village of Lanark’s centennial celebrations at Clyde Memorial Ball Park. Fifty years later, two brothers remain, Dan and Glen. Pictured (back, left to right) in the photo are: Leonard, Dewey, Jack, Ronald, Craig. Donnie, Dan, Glen, and Gradon are in front. There were 14 children in the family, including, but not pictured: Harris and Pete, Dorothy, Ruth and Lulu. The brothers played the Bingleys in a ball game that day. Our thanks to Glen Barr for sharing this family memory with the EMC. Submitted photo

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Caring community gives to children DEAR EDITOR: On behalf of Operation Christmas Child, I want to express my sincere thanks to all those who participated in any way during this year’s campaign. Special thanks to Asbury Free Methodist Church and all the volunteers who so freely gave of their time. Thanks to all the businesses that donated money and supplies so generously thus enabling us to fill and ship many more boxes. Thanks to the Perth Salvation Army Store, McMartin House and K.W Outdoor Power Sales for acting as pick-up and drop-off sites for the boxes this year. The children who receive these boxes live in some of the poorest surroundings in the world. Many spend time daily going to garbage dumps to find enough food to survive another day. They are the forgotten victims of war,

weather-related disasters, poverty and disease. Destitute families fight day by day to feed their children and provide them with the barest necessities but are never able to provide them with any extras. In most of these countries there is no help for them and the boxes are well received as they bring such incredible joy to their little ones. Once again, we can take a moment this Christmas season and imagine the sheer joy and happiness children all over the world will experience as they open the little box that each of you has so lovingly prepared. What better way to enjoy the true meaning of Christmas. Thank you once again and may you and your families have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Vivian Buchanan Perth

EMC Editorial – While Christmas parties and friendly get togethers have already begun for this “festive” season, the message remains the same. Don’t drink and drive – stay alive. Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere (RIDE) programs will be and have already started across the province. The Ontario Provincial Police as well as local police departments, including the Perth and Smiths Falls police services, undertake this initiative every year to check for impaired drivers on roadways. There are so many options out there for those who choose to have a beverage or two, options to get them home safely. Take a cab or have a designated driver take you home. Really there is no safe limit for alcoholic intake, just because you have only had one or two doesn’t necessarily mean that hasn’t put you over the limit, or that you aren’t a risk on the roads. The RIDE campaign originally began in 1977 in Etobicoke and worked its way across the province. The campaign involves police spot checks, stopping vehicles and checking drivers for signs of impairment. Officers across the province dedicate their time and energy to the program, one that last year, in OPP jurisdiction, saw 551 persons issued warn range suspensions and 652 people charged with impaired, over 80 or refusal. Why are the numbers still so high? Not everyone it appears is getting the message. It is a message which really should be considered all year round, not just around the holiday. When getting behind the wheel of your car, truck or whatever vehicle you may be driving – remember it is a huge piece of machinery, a “monster” as one OPP officer once described it. Ensure you are handling it with care, keeping in mind your own safety and the safety of others you may come across on any road or street. Mothers Against Drunk Driving Canada estimates that in 2009 a minimum of 1,074 fatalities in motor vehicle crashes were impairment-related. Keep the holidays festive. Either have those few drinks and find an alternative way home, or don’t drink and be a designated driver. Ensure you make the right choice for yourself, passengers you may have and for all others on the road.

Turkey Fair day was a make or break time for family EMC Lifestyle – Turkey Fair day. Once a year, farmers from far and wide converged on the town of Renfrew for what they all hoped would be a prosperous day. Ideally, all the fowl would be sold, and that would mean a brighter Christmas at a time when money was as scarce as hens’ teeth. Of course it wasn’t only turkeys that were taken into town: geese, eggs, butter, fresh cream, and always on our big flat-bottomed sleigh, would be Mother’s sticky buns, which were usually the first to be sold. Turkey Fair day was also on a Saturday, so there were many hands to help with getting everything loaded on the sleigh, preparing a hearty lunch and making sure everyone had gone to the outhouse at the last minute, and was well wrapped up for the long, freezing day ahead. There was no sleeping in on turkey fair day. We were roused before dawn, because

Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

Father wanted to claim a good spot on the main street. Sales depended on where you parked the sleigh. Too far down Raglan, in either direction, meant you would be lucky to get rid of everything you had brought in from Northcote. The people who lived in town weren’t about to walk beyond the main business core. Once we claimed our spot, Father would unhitch the team and walk it down to the drive shed at the south end of town, and we were ready for business. The stores opened early that day, which delighted my sister Audrey and me, because we didn’t want to hang around the sleigh… we wanted to start at one end of the street,

and work our way through every store. We went into stores we would never dream of entering any other time. Who could afford a store like Frasers? Just the rich people of Renfrew, that’s who. And so Audrey and I would go in, and the store always smelled of lemons for some reason, and of the newness of clothes, and there was always a big bowl of peppermints on the counter by each register. These candies were little round discs, dusty with peppermint powder and my sister and I always grabbed one each after we had circled the store looking at the beautiful clothes. At the “rich people’s stores,” as Audrey and I called them, they seemed to know we

weren’t there to buy anything, because no one ever came up to us to offer help. That suited us just fine. By the time noon hour rolled around, we were ready for lunch, and ready to head over to the CPR station to go to the bathroom. I never saw Mother or Father eat. And I have no idea if they did, but we five kids were each handed a brown paper bag (saved of course from a purchase at Briscoe’s General Store) just as the town clock struck the noon hour. Through the generosity of the Chinese Restaurant, we were allowed to eat our lunch in one of the booths inside where it was warm. Good people, Mother called them. After we had eaten our plain jelly sandwich, we were more than ready to visit the station to use its facility. This was the one point in the day I dreaded. I’m sure it was my imagination, but I always thought the station master didn’t approve of us farm

We tried to be as quiet as possible, and we stomped the snow off our feet when we went in, so as not to leave a wet mark on the floor. The whole place was painted a sickly green, and smelled of strong disinfectant, and Audrey and I used the bathroom as quickly as possible, so that we could head back to the main street. My sister always went to the counter and said thank you, but the station agent never raised his head. That afternoon, Turkey Fair day was coming to an end. I was too scared to ask Mother if everything she had brought in on the sleigh had sold. But I could usually tell from the look on her face. Everett would be sent to bring the horses from the drive shed, and Father would hitch them up to the sleigh, and we would pile onto the blankets,

They would be covered with white flour bag sheets at the start of the day so that everything offered for sale would look its best and look meticulously clean. Audrey would fold up the sheets, and with Mother and Father on the one seat on the sleigh, and we five crowded onto the bed, we would head out for Northcote. It didn’t take long for the sun to fade, and by the time we reached the Northcote Side Road the daylight would be gone. Father would light a lantern and hang it on the post at the front of the sleigh. Only then would Mother tell us what kind of day it had been. If it was a good one, we would sing all the way home. If things hadn’t gone as well as expected, we were all very quiet. But whatever was realized at Turkey Fair day, it was enough to tide us over for another spell… and Mother would say, “It’s more than we had yesterday.”

Volunteer driver receives dedication award for outstanding service By GENA GIBSON Canadian Cancer Society

EMC News - Maurice (Moe) Marshall was recently awarded the Celebrating Dedication Award to recognize his outstanding efforts as a Canadian Cancer Society Volunteer Driver. His good nature, dedication and genuine concern for people going through cancer treatment is exceptional. He goes well above and beyond anything ever asked of him, even getting up at 3:00 am to drive a client to Toronto several times. Although driving such a distance is a rare request for Society volunteers, Moe was happy to help out. Marshall got involved eight years ago when he retired and had some time on his hands. He got into a discussion with a friend about the Canadian Cancer Society’s transportation program. The discussion spurred Marshall to look into the program, and volunteer as a driver for patients who need to attend cancer treatments. That was almost eight years ago, and Marshall still regularly drives cancer patients to Kingston, Ottawa, and occasionally Toronto. “I don’t think I was even actually looking for something to do,” he said. “We had a discussion, and I enjoy driving.” “I said ‘Well, here’s a chance to do something

good….” His dedication earned him recognition recently from the Lanark, Leeds and Grenville unit of the Canadian Cancer Society. “I’ve really enjoyed being able to help, and also I’ve enjoyed the people,” Marshall stressed. “A lot of the people, I know – Brockville isn’t a huge town.” He said he was surprised by the recognition and plaque from the Society. “I don’t know that I was doing anything (special),” he admitted. Marshall said potential drivers need to realize that patience is important, as few of the drives last only a few minutes. He usually stays at the hospital during the clients’ treatments, although sometimes he will run errands if the treatments last a few hours. “I enjoy that time just meeting people (at the hospital),” he admitted. Marshall has driven everyone from young children with their parents to very elderly patients. “What I’ve found with 99.9 per cent of them is that they’re extremely positive,” he said. “Sure, they have sad moments, but it really doesn’t seem to matter what stage of cancer (they have) – they’re upbeat and full of hope.” He said some patients prefer not to talk during the drives, while others like to chat.

Robina Thomas, Office Coordinator with the Lanark, Leeds & Grenville Unit of the Canadian Cancer Society, presents Moe Marshall with the Dedication Award. “I feel them out and let them decide the course of the conversation,” he explained. Over the last couple of years, Marshall has slowed down in his volunteer drives due to back problems and other physical issues. In the early years, he said, Brockville also had only three drivers, so he would find himself driving a patient to Kingston in the morning and Ottawa in the afternoon of the same day.

“One of the things I never like to do is say no,” he admitted. The people have kept him driving, and he has seen dedication up close. “It’s the experience and the interaction with the clients – and also the staff in the cancer units there,” he said. “I’ve never seen a more dedicated group of individuals. “They’re all very caring people.”

Guests enjoyed a banquet in Perth recently with delicacies of the wild on the menu. which was saved for the banquet. Before dinner, guests were served various wild game hors d’oeuvres, garnished with wild fruit sauces and handed round by the volunteer servers. During the dinner, Fischl spoke about the club and introduced Kafrissen and the sous chefs who explained the ingredients used in each course as it was served. The first dish was wild mushroom soup, served with black walnut buns – and therein lies

a story. One club member patiently gathered a bag of walnuts every other day for a month which Fischl collected and, with some helpers, bashed with a hammer so they could pick out the nutmeat. Another member caught the bass for the next course, absolutely delicious quenelles garnished with fiddleheads and other wild greens. Tony Durant provided much of the wild fruit and conserves, including the ingredients of the mid-meal fruit sorbet, and many other

people contributed to the remaining courses. Venison tourtière with a sauce made from local tomatoes followed the sorbet. Not every ingredient was wild – but all were local. Next came moose and wild rice casserole, served with baby milkweed pods washed down with sumac tea. The finale was a medley of wild fruits in maple syrup. Volunteers not only provided the ingredients, but helped with food preparation, sold tickets, served and cleared

up. Barb Gibson was the main organizer of these aspects of the banquet. “All in all the success of the Wild Food Dinner reflects the philosophy of the Lanark Wild Food Club, which is to share knowledge, fellowship – and food – with those interested in wild game, fish, plant edibles and anything from nature,” Fischl said. Door prizes and a silent auction, organized by Mary Vandenhoff of the MMLTC, added to the fun and contrib-

uted to the funds the club was able to give the trust, whose purpose is to help landowners protect ecologically valuable areas for generations to come. The MMLTC is a nonprofit charitable organization. Howard Clifford, a director of both the Wild Food Club and the MMLTC, says he believes a love of wilderness is good for the body, mind and soul, and the activities put on by the Wild Food Club are a “delightful way for children and older people to come to a deeper understanding and appreciation of nature.” He is co-owner of cliffLAND, the spectacular 1,250 acre wilderness property, which was the first conservation easement for the MMLTC, and is pleased to share his joy in the property with all: from the under-fives to the over-eighties – several of whom climbed Blueberry Mountain this fall. “What both the Wild Food Club and the Land Trust have in common is a passion for the outdoors,” Clifford says, “and a desire to conserve it for future generations”.

EMC News – More than $4,000 was raised for the Mississippi Madawaska Land Trust Conservancy last month during the wild food banquet and silent auction held at the Lions Club in Perth Nov. 24. Peter Fischl, president of the Lanark Wild Food Club, presented a cheque for $4,165.94 to Howard Clifford of the Mississippi Madawaska Land Trust Conservancy (MMLTC). How on earth did the Lanark Wild Food Club, founded less than a year ago, provide a fabulous seven-course meal of wild food for 160 people? With a lot of effort by a great many club members who hunted, fished and gathered the ingredients from all over Lanark County over several months. A key volunteer was Erik Kafrissen the banquet chef and co-star of the Heeb and Rob Show, a wild cookery show on the Hunting and Fishing TV network. “If you know what you’re looking for its free for the taking – there’s a million types of mushrooms and all sorts of plants,” Kafrissen said. He led a foraging walk in June, and put 50 foragers to work gathering wild sumac tips, cattails, milkweed and digging up burdock – some of

Unique program helps vets transition to civilian life with $500,000 financial boost EMC News - The only program of its kind in Canada that assists veterans in their transition back to civilian life has received the full endorsement for national expansion from Royal Canadian Legion along with $500,000 spread over the next two years. Gordon Moore, the Dominion president of The Royal Canadian Legion, and Tim Laidler, executive director, Veterans Transition Network announced the partnership recently at Legion House. Originally established in 1997 by the University of British Columbia as the Veterans Transition Program with funding from the Legion BC/ Yukon Command, the free program addresses the invisible wounds of service personnel to help them recover and regain a healthy, full life. “The University of Brit-

ish Columbia’s pilot Veterans Transition Program involved some 275 veterans and has proven to decrease depression and trauma and boost selfesteem – three of the primary barriers to making a success-

“Soldiers returning from service face complex issues and require multiple layers of support.” GORDON MOORE DOMINION PRESIDENT ROYAL CANADIAN LEGION

ful transition to civilian life,” says Moore. “The Legion is satisfied with the merits of the program at the local level and would now like to help UBC expand this program to meet the growing need for transition support for all CF veterans. Any attempt at a national

program delivery requires funds to increase awareness, advocacy and train more paraprofessionals across the country; a key role the Legion is proud to play,” says Moore. “Soldiers returning from service face complex issues and require multiple layers of support. “We are grateful to the Legion for helping make the Veterans Transition Program available across Canada,” says Tim Laidler, Executive Director of the Veterans Transition Network, the nonprofit organization formed at UBC that will administer the Veterans Transition Program. “This is one of the best examples of the community, postsecondary and troops working together to provide an established treatment program that will help all veterans.”

A home is more than just four walls and a ceiling clist or handyman who likes to do his thing at the crack of dawn. If you have children, you will probably want your home to be near a school, public park or day care. You might also want to be located near

public transportation with ample parking space if you have to commute to work each day. Other nearby services you may want to look for include a police station and fire hall, which will lower the cost of home insurance.

NEW PRICE

So before making a bid on a home, take a good look at what surrounds it. You might even want to visit the area at different times of the day in order to get an earful of what types of noise and activity are typical for the area.

When you buy a home, you are buying a living environment that extends beyond the limits of your property. This environment includes all the services, businesses, neighbouring homes, schools and public spaces that surround you. It even includes streets, parks and power lines! That’s why it is important to consider what is outside the home as much as what is inside it. Do you want to be located next to the industrial area where you will be working? Do you want to be conveniently located next to a major highway? But what about the noise and pollution that come with them? Perhaps you like the convenience of being close to a school, shopping mall or good restaurants. But how close is too close? Sometimes you can be close to these conveniences but still find ways to have privacy and tranquility. Having large, mature trees on your property is one way to block out noise. It’s also worth learning about the habits of your future neighbours. Perhaps one of them is an avid motorcy-

Housing and Homelessness Programs, which is to begin in January 2013. “The province has indicated municipalities should have the flexibility to deal with local conditions,� explained Sandy Grey, the county’s social housing manager. “As such, we are inviting the public and interested community organizations to attend community meetings. The information we gather from stakeholders during these consultations will be used to create recommendations that respond to what our communities need.� The requirements for the local plans include assessing the community’s current and future housing and homeless needs, setting objectives and targets to meet these needs and describing how the objectives and targets will be met and how progress will be measured. “We hope those who at-

tend the consultations will help us by considering what they see as the major housing challenges in the county and, for each of those challenges, how we can make it better and who should be working on it,� Ms. Grey said. “Another important factor in the planning process is consideration of what resources we currently have in the community and how we can best use existing programs and services in the 10-year plan.� She notes affordability can have different definitions, and there is a range of different types of housing to consider. Demographics, employment and other trends are also factors. Five community meetings are planned so far, including Dec. 3 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Lanark Highlands Township Office (75 George St., Lanark), Dec. 3 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. upstairs at the Carleton

Place Arena (75 Neelin St., Carleton Place), Dec. 4 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Smiths Falls Legion (77 Beckwith St. N., Smiths Falls), Dec. 4 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the County Administration Building (99 Christie Lake Rd., Perth) and Dec. 6 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Almonte Old Town Hall (14 Bridge St., Almonte). As part of the requirement to address provincial interests, the county ensured it consults with specific parties, such as victims of domestic violence, persons with disabilities (for accessible housing) and Aboriginal persons living off reserve. Once complete, the plan must be reviewed every five years. “Our vision is to have a county where residents have access to safe and healthy homes that help to build strong, local communities,� said County Warden John Gemmell (Perth Deputy May-

or). “We want to hear from residents and service providers in order to develop the most comprehensive plan possible so that we know where there are gaps in service and can set goals to address them. It will incorporate the provincial requirements into a practical document that has a local flavour.� Further meetings will be held in the spring, and input from individuals or organizations is welcomed at any time. In the event of bad weather resulting in school bus cancellations, the scheduled meetings will also be cancelled. For more information or to provide input, contact Ms. Grey at 1-888-952-6275, ext. 2401. Submitted by Lanark County Social ServicesSubmitted by Lanark County Social Services

EMC News – Thirty-six Grades 7 to 12 students from across the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) attended the Indspire Conference in Montreal on Nov. 6. The conference, created for Indigenous youth, focused on future career opportunities. Approximately 450 students attended from across Canada from as far as the Northwest Territories and New Brunswick. Students could attend five workshops which helped them learn about a number of careers in media arts, television, health, banking, security, technology, the Canadian Forces/Navy, and many more. Students also learned about post-secondary opportunities. In addition, the conference featured exciting entertainment by two traditional hoop dancers, two Innu throat singers, a traditional Haudenosaunee dance troupe, as well as music by DJ Mad Eskimo. Bill Montgomery, UCDSB Aboriginal Education program resource teacher said two students won two of 10 laptop computers given away at the conference – Mikayla Prue of Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute, and Lacey Jacobs of Cornwall Collegiate and Vocational School. “Each student took something away from the conference,” said Montgomery. “It was high-energy, and the students really enjoyed it.”

Nowosad retires from club EMC News - After 22.5 years, Mike Nowosad is retiring from the helm of 4-H Canada. A long time dedicated employee, working closely with both the national 4-H Council Board of Directors and the 4-H Foundation Trustees, Nowosad played a key role in shaping the national program over his time with the organization. Under his tenure the long term ‘Measures of Success’ report measuring the impact and value of 4-H across Canada was commissioned and repeated; a national 4-H resource development and sharing network was implemented; and risk management processes and initiatives were put in place to ensure the organization was meeting the needs of its clients and members. “Mike Nowosad made a major contribution to 4-H in Canada,” says Rob Black, president of the Canadian 4-H Council. “In recent years he

4-H News was instrumental in moving the organization to a governance model of leadership and undertaking a collaborative initiative nationally to define what our organization will stand for over the next 100 years,” establishing and cultivating a network of contacts and collaborative working relationships with the agricultural industry, government and stakeholders across Canada and beyond. “Mike has been a friend of everyone directly and indirectly involved with 4-H for many years”. In 2013, 4-H will celebrate its 100th anniversary in Canada. “4-H has a long-standing tradition of encouraging youth leadership, raising awareness of agriculture and strengthening communities,” says Black. “As we begin our second century of youth leadership, we’ll

be seeking a leader that can build upon this strong foundation.” The Canadian 4-H Council will conduct a nationwide search to find the CEO to lead the national organization. The Council hopes to have the new CEO in place sometime in the New Year. About 4-H Canada Beginning in Roland, Manitoba in 1913, 4-H is one of the country’s longest-running and most respected youth organizations. 4-H provides opportunities for Canada’s youth to explore, learn, and discover while expanding their horizons. More than 8,000 trained volunteer leaders help more than 26,000 4-H members develop self-confidence and learn a wide variety of skills through hands-on project work from Newfoundland and Labrador to British Columbia.

Sure, you should have been tax-planning all year (and every year, for that matter) but even if you were otherwise occupied in 2012, you still have time to follow the 3D tax-saving strategy. 1. DEDUCT To reduce your tax bill, make full use of your tax deductions and tax credits. Tax deductions • Check out all the deductions that apply to you including: o Child care expenses o Spousal Support o Tradesperson tool expense • Take full advantage of your RRSP deduction by making your maximum contributions to your RRSP eligible investments. • Business owners: Purchase capital assets and provide taxfree gifts for employees before year-end. • Self-employed: If you’re claiming the capital cost allowance (CCA) on depreciable assets, buy them before year end to speed-up tax writeoffs. Tax credits • Pool medical expenses on the return of the lower earning spouse. Travel medical insurance also counts as a medical expense. • Pool charitable donations or carry them forward up to five

The 4-H clovers will appear in TSC stores from Nov. 30 to Dec. 12. Clovers will be displayed in-store, and all proceeds will go directly to 4-H initiatives. To learn more about TSC Stores, as well as store locations, visit www.tscstores.com. 4-H is one of Canada’s longest-running youth leadership organizations. With the motto of “Learn to Do by Doing,” 4-H has been helping youth develop leadership and life skills since 1913. More information about 4-H in Canada can be found at www.4-h-canada.ca.

Manage Your Money years to rise above the annual $200 threshold that increases your credit. • Use the spousal credit for the higher-earning spouse. • Review all the credits that might apply to you including these: o moving expense o children’s fitness o tuition, education and textbook o pension income o public transit pass o first time homebuyer o political contributions 2. DEFER • Contribute to a Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) eligible investments. The contribution isn’t tax deductible but money and growth earned on investments held within your TFSA are tax-free and so are withdrawals made at any time for any purpose. • Considering selling investments with capital gains? Delay the sale until 2013 to defer taxation. Taxes on the gain would only be payable by April 2013 instead of April 2012. • If you have money-losing investments, sell them by the December 31 to create capital losses that can offset capital

gains. 3. DIVIDE • If you’re turning 71 this year, you must wind up your RRSP and take the cash (poor choice) or transfer the funds to investments held within a Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF) or annuity (much better choice). If you have earned income, you can continue making contributions to a spousal plan until your spouse reaches 71. Here’s another way to save on taxes and fine-tune your financial plan: Talk to your professional advisor before the taxfiling deadline to be certain you make the most of every tax-reduction strategy.

EMC News - The Alzheimer Society of Lanark County is a non-profit organization that delivers many services throughout the county. The Adult Day Program is a large service that is offered. The Adult Day Program is a social program, serving those with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia, and the frail elderly. The purpose of the program is to enhance the wellbeing of seniors through a full range of recreational, social, and therapeutic programs. Participants meet weekly in a safe and comfortable environment and can look forward to activities such as arts and crafts, exercises, active games, memory games, discussion groups, music, baking, card games, and bingo. The participants will benefit from the opportunity to remain active and social with those in similar health circumstances while the caregiver will benefit from a needed break. The program encourages and promotes a social sense of well being and independence. “Those living with dementia need to have motivation and purpose” and the intent of the Adult Day Program is to provide exactly that. Participants in the Adult Day Program experience less boredom, anxiety, and depression. They tend to be more positive-thinking, and this can actually improve overall health and well being. The benefits for caregivers are very important as well. Caregivers worry less and have the benefit of more time to complete personal tasks and career responsibilities, plus they receive a temporary break from the demands of care giving. Without respite, caregivers are more susceptible to the effects of caregiver stress, depression, exhaustion and other health problems. The overall benefits of the Adult Day Program affect both

The simple act of recycling has more impact on the environment than the average Canadian thinks. The amount of wood and paper North Americans throw away each year is enough to heat five million homes for 200 years.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Songs From the Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is a gift of music EMC Entertainment Question: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do you know a great Christmas gift idea?â&#x20AC;? Answer: â&#x20AC;&#x153;No, but if you hum a few barsâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;? An old joke, but very appropriate as tickets are about to go on sale for the 2013 edition of the popular music series Songs From the Valley. A ticket to the three-concert series is a musical gift that keeps on giving right into the spring of next year. And this year, the musicians youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll hear are more exciting than ever! Now in its third year, Songs From the Valley is a collaboration between Perthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Studio Theatre and the Stewart Park Festival, showcasing the Ot-

tawa Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very best musicians. The 2013 series is being dubbed â&#x20AC;&#x153;Strings & Thingsâ&#x20AC;?, with a unique musician from outside the Valley added to the mix. On Feb. 2, world beat violinist/composer Jaron Freeman-Fox takes the stage, dancing the fine line between â&#x20AC;&#x153;the beautiful and the ridiculousâ&#x20AC;?, while redefining what the violin can do. Jaron is a protege of the late violin pioneer Oliver Shroer, and he plays his mentorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fiddles while wearing Oliverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shoes on stage. This unbelievable showman has wowed the Westport Music Festival with his five-piece band The Oppo-

site of Everything, featuring an unusual combination of instruments -- violin, accordion, bass & others -- that create an unforgettable sound when put together. On Saturday March 23, the second concert welcomes home none other than seventime Canadian Country Guitar Picker of the Year Keith Glass. A founding member of the multi Juno & Canadian Country Music Award winning band Prairie Oyster, this legendary songwriter/guitarist

continues to be a formidable presence on our music scene. The audience at this electrifying show will be able to say they were among the first to hear new material from Keith Glass, as he premieres his much anticipated new solo CD. The final show in the threeconcert series will truly be a breath of fresh air! May 4 weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll welcome a Kitchen Party hosted by Smokey Rose and Friends (Darlene Thibault, Lee Hodgkinson, Ed Ashton)

with some wonderful special guests. Almonteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brad Scott will share his pickinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; prowess, while the amazing young Henry Norwood will sing a few tunes. Veterans Harry Adrain, Judi Moffat and Barry Munroe will also share their talents for a foot-stompinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; great time. Tickets for Songs From the Valley 2013 are $25 per show or $65 for all three. Why not buy the series and save $10? And donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget, someone on your Christmas list is hoping

to get Songs From the Valley in their stocking! Tickets will be available from any Stewart Park Festival Board Member for cash or cheque (please contact Sue at 613-267-7902) and also by debit or credit card from Tickets Please, 39 Foster St., Perth, 613-485-6434.

Young Ontario adults more likely to smoke cannabis than drink eight per cent of women were drinking in ways that were hazardous or harmful, up from five per cent in 1998. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Binge drinking also remains high, particularly among 18- to 29-year olds,â&#x20AC;? says Mann. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Overall, nine per cent of Ontario drinkers consume five or more drinks at one time each week, which represents 691,700 people.â&#x20AC;? The survey also showed that

the average number of drinks consumed weekly has increased, as has the number of drinkers overall who report daily drinking. OPIOID USE There was some good news, with the reduction in non-medical use of prescription opioids, which has been a concern in recent years. Use dropped by half between 2010 and 2011, down to four per

cent in 2011. This decline may be the result of Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s narcotics strategy as well as other policy measures to reduce the non-medical use of these powerful, addictive drugs, Mann suggests. MENTAL HEALTH One in seven Ontario adults (17 per cent) report elevated psychological distress, with rates highest among those

aged 18 to 29. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This type of distress can reduce peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to function effectively socially and emotionally,â&#x20AC;? says Mann. Seven per cent of adults reported using an anxiety medication, and seven per cent took a depression medication. These medications were most likely to be used by those aged 40 to 49, and in the case of antidepressants, by women

in this age range. SMOKING Smoking rates have been declining steadily for years in Ontario. Currently 15 per cent, or 1.4 million Ontarians, say they are smokers. However, this rate may be leveling off, says Mann. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The 15 per cent remains three times higher than the Cancer Care Ontario target of five per cent.â&#x20AC;?

EMC news - Most Ontario adults are drinking responsibly, and fewer are smoking or using illicit substances, but several areas of concern were found in a survey of substance use trends released by the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health. â&#x20AC;&#x153;More young adults are reporting that they drive within an hour of using cannabis â&#x20AC;&#x201C; even more than those who report drinking and driving,â&#x20AC;? says Dr. Robert Mann, CAMH senior scientist and lead researcher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yet the risks of doing so are significant.â&#x20AC;? Nine per cent of 18- to 29-year-olds report driving after cannabis use, versus six per cent in this age range who report drinking two or more drinks and driving. The 2011 CAMH Monitor survey, which included 3,039 adults aged 18 or older from across Ontario, is the longest ongoing survey of adult substance use in Canada. MARIJUANA Canibus users are also aging, the survey found. Those aged 50 or older now account for 16 per cent of all adult users of cannabis, which is five times higher than in 1977. ALCOHOL Most Ontario adults report drinking alcohol in the past year (81 per cent), but the majority does not drink excessively. Alcohol use is a concern when there are harmful drinking patterns, which occur in certain groups. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Women are drinking more than in the past,â&#x20AC;? says Mann. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Several key drinking indicators show an increase among women.â&#x20AC;? Six per cent of women reported a pattern of drinking daily in 2011, compared to three percent in 1998. About

RVCA open house invitation to public: Draft flood mapping for the Tay River calculations by making use of every bit of information we can obtain about the historical observations along the Tay River. Residents and landowners along the river may have anecdotal or documented information such as photographs or journal entries of their observation during past high water events. This kind of information can be very useful for evaluating the “reasonableness” of the flood lines shown on the maps and the study team is interested in reviewing any past flood evidence that people may wish to share. These maps, like their counterparts on river systems across Ontario, are the corner stone for keeping people and property safe. Controlling development on a watershed basis has long been recognized

as the most cost-effective and environmentally-acceptable way to consistently manage the risk associated with floods and other natural hazards area. Once approved by the RVCA Board of Directors, RVCA staff will use the maps for defining areas that are subject to flood hazards along the waterway. The new mapping will also be used by local municipalities when updating their Official Plans and Zoning Schedules and in the review of other related Planning Act applications. Maps showing the updated flood risk areas will be on display. When finalized, these flood risk maps will be used by planners to determine where development should and should not be located. These maps, like their counterparts

on river systems across Ontario, are the corner stone for keeping people and property safe during high water events. The maps will also show the regulation lines which are based on flood risk, presence of wetlands, and steep slope considerations. The last floodplain mapping in this area was completed in 1981 and covered the river from Glen Tay Road to the Tay Marsh. Now 30 years old, the maps need updating. No flood plain mapping has ever been done for the river downstream of the Tay Marsh. The current project will replace the old mapping and produce new mapping downstream of the Marsh. The RVCA finished mapping upstream of Glen Tay Road to the Christie Lake outlet in 2009. Submitted by the RVCA

LAWS animals on the lookout for forever homes EMC News - The Annual General Meeting of LAWS membership was held on Nov. 28 and we were encouraged to see so many supporters and members turn out to hear about the new vision for LAWS. There is a lot of work being done to ensure this great organization can continue to provide help to all the animals who need it, and we look forward to a successful year ahead as we make changes to ensure we are always there for our community. A special thank you to MP Randy Hillier for taking the time to attend and address our membership and to Melissa Rusk, President of LAWS, for her unwavering commitment and dedication to the animals and the membership of the Lanark Animal Welfare Society. Santa has been busy lately visiting all the parades and having his picture taken with all the good dogs and cats in our communities (theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all good in Santaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eyes!!). Recently, Santa visited the County Fair Mall in Smiths Falls and we wish to thank Bernie Boucher (Santa extraordinaire) and Mike Clark for his photography, and all of the families and animals who attended. Thank you also to the team at County Fair Mall for their continued support to the animals at LAWS. We would also like to thank

the following for their generous donations for the benefit of L.A.W.S.: Howard, Ryan, Kelford, Knott and Dixon; Ross Cliffen and Associates; Kirkland, Murphy and Kennedy; Glen Tay School, Libby Ladd, Kyra Debbie and Zoe Stockhard. To all our generous supporters for your donations of supplies, dog/cat canned food, warm blankets and towels and many other items (too numerous to mention in this column!). You have enriched the animalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lives with your kindness. To all our wonderful Volunteers for helping us out on a regular basis, come rain or shine, through thick and thin. We appreciate your loyalty, your passion and dedication in helping and caring for our animals DOG PIC GOES HERE Biggie I am a mature dog and, as some would say, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m getting up there in years, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be fooled! I love to go for long walks and I can even keep up with my golden retriever friend whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much bigger than I am. I enjoy playing with other dogs, gentle souls that are non confrontational that is. I love to be cuddled and I show this by closing my eyes in contentment.

of the Week. Have you ever seen a more interesting looking cat in your life? He has the most spectacular grey coat I have ever seen and a fox like faceâ&#x20AC;Ś he is adorable. He is a talkative neutered male of about two years of age. He has recovered from a urinary tract infection so now requires special kibble, but please donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let that be a deterrent; he is absolutely worth it! He has a laid back personality and loves being held and petted. He is a big boy with a big heart. Please

Mudds’ Aladdin is a treat for the whole family Judging by the reaction of the children in attendance for Friday’s premiere, the tale hasn’t lost its lustre. This show is very much about audience participation. The cast invites spectators to take part and people did so with enthusiasm, especially the kids in attendance, which added to the enjoyment for the rest of us. The familiar theme of “heroes and villains” gets a good workout in Aladdin. The good guys are led by Aladdin (confidently played by young Tanner Flinn) and his lady love Princess Say When (Amy Bourne). They are well supported by Aladdin’s sister Wishee Washey (Caitlin Mortin) and his mother, the Widow Twankey, who is very well played by Mudds’ veteran Jim MacGregor. Veterans excellent MacGregor and Mudds’ founder Jan Ferguson, who plays the Genie ‘Mazda’ are the only two returnees from the original Mudds’ presentation of Aladdin 22 years ago. Ferguson had a different role in the original show but MacGregor reprises his Widow Twankey character. They are both nothing short of brilliant and they stole the show for me. MacGregor, who is involved less frequently on stage these days, has clearly become very comfortable as a cross-dresser. Regular Mudds’ watchers will remember his excellent performance as Mother Goose in 2009. As for the story, Aladdin a poor Chinese boy meets the Princess and they immediately fall in love. He certainly isn’t the choice for Say When’s parents Emperor Chop Suey (Brian McManus) and Empress Dragona (Jennifer Pfitzer). If he is caught Aladdin will have his head chopped off on their orders. He is saved because Abanazar, an Egyptian magician (well played by Adam Pelletier), has chosen him to help retrieve a magic lamp hidden in a secret cave outside the capital city (Pekin in this case). Aladdin agrees to help

the magician. Once he has the lamp in hand he decides to keep it for himself. Abanazar seals the cave hoping our hero will die. The action really heats up when Aladdin rubs the lamp and the genie (Ferguson at her absolute best) appears. Not only is he saved but the genie makes him the richest prince in Asia. Aladdin and Say When are married in the first act. But their future is nearly undone when Abanazar tricks the Princess into giving him the lamp. He takes her to Egypt and the great pyramids. All appears lost for Aladdin, his mother and sister. They are reduced to begging for alms. Thanks to the intervention of a magical spirit, he follows his love to Egypt where he recovers the lamp, defeats Abanazar and returns in triumph to China. There are many good supporting performances from the cast of 19. Prince Pekoe, the Princesses’ intended, is ably played by Liz Szucs. Mudds’ regulars Mike Lieff (The Visier, Chow Mein) along with Trish Smith and Kathleen Everett (they are the police officers Tofu and Bamboo) are delightful. Young sisters Kirra and Maddy Martin – they play the executioner and Mazawattee, Spirit of the Ring respectively – also did very good work. They’re too cute for words! I haven’t even touched on the music. This is very much a musical and it features some familiar songs which are well presented and fit the production nicely. Musical director Kristine MacLaren and band leader/arranger Peter Brown have put together a strong musical package. Brown and three fellow musicians were flawless in support Friday. Song highlights in Act 1 include ‘I’ve Just Seen a Face’ featuring Flinn, along with the 11 member chorus (they did strong work throughout the show) and ‘Girls Just Want to Have Fun’ with the Widow Twankey taking the lead. MacGregor’s vocals are

at times which is unusual for local theatre. The funniest moment came late in the piece when, after being surprised by one of the scenes, a young girl in the audience exclaimed “that was weird” in a voice that could have been heard on Bridge Street. Everyone in the audience roared. So did some of the actors! This is a fun presentation and I was disappointed there wasn’t a full house Friday to witness it. Hopefully that can be rectified this weekend, although Monday many tickets

so bad they’re good, if that makes any sense! Bourne, the Princess, has a sweet voice and I particularly enjoyed her handling of ‘You Had Me from Hello’ in Act 1 and ‘Do You Believe in Fairy Tales’ in the second act. The script is very strong in places with plenty of puns (there are some real groaners), interesting word play and just the right number of welltimed local references to add more humour. I mentioned the audience participation! It was totally spontaneous

EMC Entertainment – The Mississippi Mudds have dusted off an old script for their annual pre-Christmas, musical panto. When Aladdin rubs the magic lamp the result is a highly energized, humorous and visually pleasing show that is perfect for the whole family. Friday night the familiar tale ‘Aladdin’ opened a sixperformance run in the venerable Town Hall Auditorium in Carleton Place. Mudds marked their 35th anniversary in 2008 and this is the second time they have presented the same panto. The last time was 22 years ago and Tony Scott, who directs the current production, was in charge of that staging as well. Joanne Samler is the producer of this show and Barb Dickson is the stage manager. I didn’t see the first, so I can’t offer a comparison. But with a cast that is almost completely different and some new bits added to this presentation, a comparison would be unfair. Still, it is hard to imagine the 1990 show could have been any more impressive in terms of costumes and scenery? The large backstage crew has outdone themselves once again. Not surprising considering Mudds’ spring presentation of ‘Noises Off’ won the Capital Critics Circle (Ottawa) award for Best Set Design (Community). Congratulations to Shawn Millman and Jeff Lee! The sets for Aladdin are good too. But it is the costumes that impressed me most! Judith Scott (yes, she is the director’s wife) and her sevenmember costume team have produced what has to be one of the most outstanding sets of costumes I have ever seen in a Mississippi Mudds’ presentation. And I have attended countless over the years. The word “professional” is the right one I think! The story of Aladdin and the magic lamp is quite a familiar one, although possibly not for today’s youngsters.

It’s time to make your list, check it twice and get your home in the holiday spirit! EMC News - Take advantage of the milder temperatures this weekend to get your holiday lights up and get it done safely with these tips from Hydro One: • Always use Canadian Standards Association (CSA) approved lights, cords, plugs and sockets that are marked for outdoor use or wet locations. •Do not overload circuits. Have no more than 1,400 watts on a circuit. If other lights in the house dim when the holiday lighting is turned on or the plug is very hot af-

ter unplugging it, your circuit is overloaded. To figure out a circuit’s load, multiply the number of bulbs by the watts per bulb, and add any lamps, appliances or other equipment on the same circuit. •Before you put light strings on a shrub, tree or your house, check for breaks or signs of insulation deterioration. Frayed cords or loose connections indicate that the wiring is poor. Replace any defective sets. •Never install lights with the power on. Test lights first, then unplug to install.

•Keep electrical connections off the ground. Use eave clips or insulated staples, rather than nails and tacks, to hold light strings in place. •Keep wiring clear of metal parts such as ornamental railings and drainpipes, to prevent any risk of shock from an electrical current. Do not leave any light sockets empty if you want sections in your light string unlit. This can create a fire hazard or could be

fatal if someone touches the inside of the empty socket. Instead place a burned-out bulb in the socket. This will not affect the other lights on the string. Looking to save energy this holiday season? Make the switch to Light Emitting Diode (LED) holiday lights and enjoy significant energy and cost savings this winter. According to Natural Resources Canada, LEDs use 80 per cent

less energy than their incandescent counterparts, so now is the time to upgrade your old incandescent strings. If you’re still not sure, consider this: incandescent bulbs waste a lot of energy - 90% of the energy they consume is used to heat the bulb, while only 10% is used for lighting. LEDs, by contrast, directly convert electricity to light without the use of a filament or glass bulb, resulting in less

energy loss through heat. LED light strings also last up to ten times longer than incandescent light strings. And because they don’t have moving parts, filaments or glass, they’re much more durable and shock-resistant than other light strings. Interested in additional ways to save energy?

Winter tire benefits not understood: report EMC news - Only half of Canadian drivers (52 per cent) use winter tires, despite their proven superior performance in all cold-weather road conditions. A 2011 study by the Quebec government shows that winter road-accident injuries have dropped by five per cent since winter tire use was made mandatory by law in that province in 2008. Widespread use of winter tires is credited with preventing about 575 injuries per winter in the province.

These findings are supported by a new report from the Traffic Injury Research Foundation that concludes that winter tires decrease costly collisions. The report cites extensive research that shows that winter tires deliver superior traction, cornering and braking on all cold-weather road surfaces. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All the evidence points to winter tires being the safest choice for driving in cold weather,â&#x20AC;? says Glenn Maidment, president of the Rubber

Association of Canada, which represents tire makers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Drivers should carefully consider whether winter tires are right for them and make an educated choice.â&#x20AC;? The TIRF report stresses that the benefits of winter tires are not well understood and clarifies commonly held myths about winter tires. Many motorists, for example, think that winter tires are only useful in regions with lots of snow.

In fact, research shows that once temperatures drop below 7C, winter tires perform better whether the road surface is dry, snow covered, slushy or icy. Winter tires feature specialized rubber compounds that retain elasticity in temperatures below -30C and treads that grip at cold temperatures. Another commonly believed myth is that two winter tires, rather than a set of four, is sufficient. Mixing different types of tires creates a traction imbalance between the front and

rear wheel positions and can cause a vehicle to â&#x20AC;&#x153;over steerâ&#x20AC;? (when the winter tires are mounted on the front axle) or â&#x20AC;&#x153;under steerâ&#x20AC;? (when the winter tires are on the rear axle). These unsafe conditions can make a vehicle difficult to control, particularly when cornering. Proper tire inflation is also important during the winterdriving month. Tires that are under-orover inflated have a smaller footprint on the road surface, which lessens their grip. The result is reduced stop-

ping and handling capabilities and wasted fuel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Winter tires and proper inflation should be considered driving essentials from December to April,â&#x20AC;? says Maidment. â&#x20AC;&#x153; Motorists should also practise defensive driving and keep their vehicles properly maintained and prepared for winter driving.â&#x20AC;?

Brent traded his bicycle for a 1955 Chevrolet when I said it had no reverse. He walked into the house, returned with a pipe wrench, opened the hood, and gave the steering column a twist. Now all gears worked, including reverse! “Next day we towed my car to our cottage, where I learned to drive on empty fields and logging roads. I worked parttime on a farm for gas money. The next summer, I ruined

the automatic transmission. A farmer down the road was junking another ’55 and gave me the standard transmission. I cut a big hole in the floor and made two rods sticking up. You shifted one rod to move into neutral and the other rod to move into the next gear. After some grinding, it worked reasonably well. “Next summer, I chopped off the back of the car with

an ax and made it into a tow truck. It was finally towed to a scrap heap. Years later, I was building a T-bucket roadster and I needed a good differential. I went to the old scrap heap and removed the complete diff assembly from my old ’55 and installed it in my T-bucket, where it still runs today.” Many thanks to Doug Janney of Renfrew for suggesting

EMC News - Brent Scobie of Renfrew, Ontario, writes: “In 1968 I acquired a used boys’ 20” bike frame. I modified the frame to install a larger back wheel with 3-speed gears, cut the front forks and welded homemade forks on, and installed home-made “ape” hangers for handlebars. I also installed a 3-speed stick shifter on the front cross bar and topped it off with a custom blue paint job and new chrome fenders. “Later that spring, I pedaled down to the local soda shop, where a teenager asked if I would trade my bike for his car! Thinking he was joking, I said ‘Sure!’ Then he showed me his car – a ’55 Chevy 2-door. I told him I didn’t have a driver’s license. He replied: ‘I’ll drive it home for you.’ “We shook hands, I signed the ownership, and he drove the car to my parents’ house. I had him park down the street until I could get enough nerve to tell Dad. As he handed me the keys, he told me reverse gear didn’t work. “About a week later, Dad asked if I knew who owned the blue Chev parked on the street. I proudly said: ‘It’s mine!’ Dad lectured me on why I shouldn’t own a car. I wasn’t even old enough to drive. Then he asked for the keys and started it up. That’s

MOVIE: Rise of the Guardians STARRING: Chris Pine, Alec Baldwin, Hugh Jackman, Isla Fisher and Jude Law DIRECTOR: Peter Ramsey RATING: G EMC Entertainment - Rise of the Guardians turned out to be one heck of a superhero film. Who knew? An ancient enemy threatens to turn the dreams of children into nightmares. He’ll steal hope and wonder, and cloak the world in darkness. His name is Pitch Black (Jude Law), but most fear him as the Boogeyman. Fortunately there are guardians who protect the children of the world. All four, Santa Claus (Alec Baldwin), the Easter Bunny (Hugh Jackman), the Tooth Fairy (Isla Fisher) and the Sandman, have come together to fight Pitch. Each immortal has special powers, but even they may not be enough. Fortunately a new guardian has been chosen; Jack Frost (Chris Pine). Jack is another immortal with powers over ice, cold and wind. He’s a jokester and a trickster. He’s the one who brings

My Take MARK HASKINS

snow days to children, and starts snowball fights. He’s not a guardian, but if Jack is to have any hope of defeating Pitch he’ll have to discover the hero he was always meant to be. Imagine if Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, the Sandman and Jack Frost were part of The Avengers, and you’ll have a pretty good idea what Rise of the Guardians is like. It’s a fantastic adventure of good versus evil in which a group of immortals with amazing powers battle a terrifying evil. There’s a holiday theme, but it’s basically a superhero film. It’s an imaginative story that doesn’t shy away from being a little dark in places. That dark undertone really heightened the excitement and intensity of the film. There are some powerful moments, which combined with the stunning animation, makes Rise of the Guardians a must-see film. Alec Baldwin is the voice of the larger than life, sword wielding, tattooed, Russian

warrior that is Santa Claus. It’s a great character and Baldwin is awesome. The Easter Bunny, with his magic boomerangs, is nature’s fierce defender. There’s no one better to voice the sixfoot Australian bunny than Hugh Jackman. The Tooth Fairy is part human and part hummingbird and all fairy. She’s full of energy, and Isla Fisher really helps bring her to life. Though he doesn’t have a voice I should also mention the Sandman. He appears as a kind-hearted purveyor of dreams who communicates through his sand creations, but when the fight is on, well let’s just say you don’t want to mess with the Sandman. As villains go the Boogeyman is as classic as they get. He’s everything we fear about the dark. Like all true megalomaniacs intent on taking over the world, Jude Law steals the show. Jack struggles with who he is, but deep down he’s a born hero. Chris Pine is perfect as the immortal trickster of ice and snow. Rise of the Guardians may be a superhero/holiday adventure, but mostly it’s just good fun. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

Twin community in Scotland suffers trial by water EMC Lifestyle - This year marks the 20th anniversary of the twinning arrangement involving Carleton Place, Ontario, Canada and the picturesque village of Comrie in the Strathearn district of Scotland’s famed Highlands. After visiting the community four times my wife and I have become very familiar with the village. We are fortunate to count a number of the villagers as friends and we’re in touch with them regularly by e-mail and telephone. Our most recent visit was in August when we attended ceremonies marking the 20th anniversary of the Carleton Place-Comrie twinning. I am the current chairman of the Carleton Place Sister City Committee which oversees sister city linkages with Comrie and the city of Franklin, Tennessee near Nashville. My wife Kathleen is also a committee member. We traveled with our good friends Wendy and Frank LeBlanc who are also long-time committee members. As mayor of Carleton Place, Wendy’s role during the ceremonies in Comrie had two sides. Our trip was highly successful. We had barely arrived home when on Aug. 27 we received the disappointing news that Comrie had suffered serious flooding. The flood resulted from the same torrential rains which plagued Scotland and much of the United Kingdom all spring and summer. I wrote a

Reflections BY JEFF MAGUIRE

newspaper story about the occurrence and also commented on it in a previous column. Two weeks ago, it happened again! Just 83 days after the previous flood an even more serious disaster occurred on Nov. 19.The August occurrence displaced quite a few families with some forced to leave their homes for up to six months while extensive repairs are made. Last week’s flood was in the same area. Now the most seriously affected properties in the village of less than 3,000 have been hit for a second time. Some people were just nicely back in their houses when another rain-induced torrent of water poured in overnight Sunday Nov. 18. They were forced to flee for the second time in less than three months. There is a political situation involved. Residents and Comrie Community Council, a volunteer body, are blaming the local authority – Perth and Kinross Council – for failing to complete a promised flood protection scheme. The flooding was serious enough to warrant national publicity on the BBC. I watched a news clip on

BBC Scotland during which a public works supervisor commented on the planned water diversion scheme. Reminded by the reporter of public anger aimed at his employer (county council) the man said he understands the anger and frustration. But he said the protection scheme has just received final approval. He is hopeful work will be under way shortly. However, he stopped well short when asked if the program will prevent future occurrences of this sort. “We’ve had unprecedented rainfall recently so there are no guarantees unfortunately,” the public works superintendent stated. Last week sandbagging and other anti-flood barricades were underway in anticipation of even more heavy rainfall last weekend and again this week. Scotland is well known for its cool, wet weather. This year the persistence of the rain and the volume of water that has fallen from the skies there is truly unbelievable. We were in Comrie for five days in August and there was rain every day in varying amounts. Luckily the sun shone during the outdoor 20th anniversary event on Aug. 18. But only briefly unfortunately! By the next day the rain was bucketing down again. On our final night in Comrie I took a short walk in the rain and noticed storm sewers

on the main street were nearly overflowing. Water was backing up everywhere because the ground simply could not soak up any more. Some of our friends in Comrie point out that the village is very vulnerable. It lies at the confluence of three rivers. The largest, the River Earn, bisects the village. Its tributaries are the Water of Ruchill and the River Lednock. All have been swollen well beyond normal this year. The problem river is the Ruchill which is the focus of the planned widening and deepening work. The relatively small, narrow water course was unable to handle the huge volume of water surging down from the Highlands during the downpours which occurred Aug. 26/27 and Nov. 18/19. On both occasions the Ruchill burst its banks and water poured into the section of Comrie known as ‘Dalginross’ on the south side of the River Earn. The hardest hit streets in August were Barrack and Camp Roads along with Tay Avenue and Tay Place. Last week the same general area was affected except even more properties (more than 100 in total) were affected many seriously. Firefighters and police had to rescue some people who were cut off and trapped by the flood waters. Fortunately there were no injuries that I am aware of. As they did in August the

fire brigades also did a fantastic job of pumping out the hardest hit homes and streets. Our good friend Isobel McEwan e-mailed to fill us in on developments. “Once again Comrie has shown what a wonderful community it is,” she says. “The emergency services were here in minutes. I dread to think what would have happened if there had been a fire anywhere as I think every fire engine in Scotland was here. I know that they came from as far away as Edinburgh.” The Scottish capital, by the way, is more than an hour by road from Comrie.Isobel’s tidy home on Tay Ave. just missed being inundated in August. This time the waters rose too quickly and her basement was flooded. Her neighbor quickly pumped it out, minimizing damage. She considers herself very fortunate because her living space was not impacted. Comrie councillor Sandra McRitchie also credits the emergency services for their early response last week. She too praised the community for coming together to help those displaced by the flooding. “A brigade of volunteers have been down at the White Church Community Centre providing those affected, as well as volunteers and the emergency services with hot food, tea and even a wee dram. “The local shops have do-

nated food and the women are busy peeling potatoes. Comrie’s community spirit shines again!” Our young friend Amanda Lees is a Girl Guide leader there. Her experience paid off during the most recent flooding. “Yesterday was manic,” she wrote to me last Tuesday. I spent seven hours running after all the emergency service staff feeding them and chatting with them. “Gotta use my Guiding spirit in a situation like that. But boy, do my feet hurt today!” Isobel McEwan summed up the disaster very well in her communications to us. “It is really heartbreaking to see some of the houses just along from me that were flooded in August and were still being dried out, flooded again. “Comrie is the best place in the world to be when this sort of thing happens though. The real meaning of community shines through.” So there you have it. Comrie’s trial by water has been overcome by the strength of the human spirit. We wish the people of our twin community the very best as they once again work to recover from the wrath of Mother Nature.

The therapy of music affects our lives in many ways Musical Musings STEVE TENNANT

Parkinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While music has long been recognized as an effective form of therapy, the notion of harnessing song, sound frequencies and rhythm as another tool in treating physical ailments is a much newer domain.â&#x20AC;? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure this is just the tip of the iceberg. As we relished in the sweet vocal harmonies offered by Beckon (Beth Hamilton and Connie Rossitter from Owen Sound, Ont.), they shared one is a Music Therapist. That got me thinking of the Toronto Starâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s previously quoted article my dad had shared with me earlier and also the wonderful work I saw first hand as I was lucky to witness Music Therapists perform their magical connectedness with some of my clients who had no speech, little movement and relied on others for everything, every day. To see one of their hands being strummed across a guitarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strings, the resulting sound bringing a beaming sparkle on their face and eye contact with the therapist that said more than words ever could. I remembered Rev. John Mont-

gomery sharing stories of incredible connections he had made through his drumming workshops with seniors who hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spoken in years. Music affects so much of us, whether its our feet tappinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; or long forgotten memories .... I have so many friends in which music is really our only connection. The rest of our respective lives are in entirely different worlds but somewhere along the way weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve connected through music. As I looked around a recent party held in my honour I looked around the room and realized there were people there representing all aspects of my adult life and to almost everyone, some song came to mind in particular. Music is a magical connection. It is what makes me so excited to hear the results of the U of T Music Project. To me, the sky is the limit. I know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music that has kept me in the semi-sane state I enjoy today.

EMC Entertainment - As I sat slightly behind, I witnessed one of my friendsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; elderly mother reach across the table and take my friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hand while we all sat enjoying a new duo â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Beckonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; at a new coffee house in Perth, Bakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bean Village Cafe at 1 Sherbrooke E. on a sunny fall mid-week afternoon. There were no words, just the tender touch between them but so much more was going on with that flesh to flesh connection... Oh, and such a sweet satisfied smile shared on mom and daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s faces. Daughter had brought mom to enjoy the music, out from the nursing home she had recently reluctantly moved her into. That musical connection remains where so much else has gone. Music has such an effect on us, more than we realize it seems. Quoting a Dec 16, 2011 article in The Toronto Star ... â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has been called the window on the soul, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the brandy of the damnedâ&#x20AC;?, and most famously, the food of love. Now scientists believe music may also be an important form of medicine. And next year, Toronto could be at the forefront of this emerging field with the launch of a new centre on music and health research.â&#x20AC;? The article goes on to describe a new program at University of Toronto where they will look to find new uses of music to assist with strokes, Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, chronic pain and

There are steps to take for effective long-term storage EMC Lifestyle - â&#x20AC;&#x153;Brian, If I leave a car (my relatively new 2012 Toyota Corolla) in a garage for three months while I am south is there anything I have to do to the car â&#x20AC;&#x201C; such as disconnecting the battery?â&#x20AC;? Thanks, Gord There are difficulties, even with vehicles as new as your Toyota, when it comes to long-term storage. Many of these can be overcome, but not without expense. For example, you can purchase and install a high tech-battery minder/charger that will keep the battery at full strength without overcharging it. (Disconnecting the battery may lead to radio, vehicle security system, and other on-board computer problems and leaving it connected for three months of no use may discharge it). You can have a

treatment applied to the brake surfaces (rotors and drums) to avoid rust build up and excessive noise and vibration from the brakes when you first take the vehicle out for a drive. You can mount the vehicle on jack stands to avoid stressing suspension components. You can treat the fuel with stabilizer and you can fog the engine cylinders with oil, etc, etc, etc. You can avoid all of this all of this, if you can locate a trusted family member or friend, who can drop by monthly to start the car, and take it for a short run (15-20 km) that fully warms up the engine and works the suspen-

It will be your insurance on the line while this vehicle is out on the road and having unsupervised access to a fairly new Toyota will be a great temptation to a lot of people. Whether or not you choose the storage or trusted friend option, treating the vehicle with some critter-proofing is advised. Get some aromatic natural peppermint oil from your local health or natural food store, mix it 1 to 10 with warm water and pour it in a hand-spray bottle.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dear Mr. Turner, I have a 2009 PT Cruiser and when I bought it last year the tires were continually going flat. The mechanic said they were having trouble with these cars because of the tire sensors so I had them removed and had no more trouble with tire deflation. After reading your recent column I wonder if it will have any effect on the traction-control. Also, does it affect gas mileage? My already poor gas mileage of 10 L/100 km has gone down to 10.3 L/100 km.

Eye-catching 1977 Pontiac LeMans owned for nearly 30 years! EMC Lifestyle - Steve Hillman of London, Ontario, writes: “Hi Bill, I love reading your articles and always look forward to them. My car is nothing special but it means everything to me. “At age 16, I was determined to buy a Pontiac GTO. I found a ’69 (if memory serves) with a 455 in it. My mother had to test drive it because I only had my beginners license. She could not touch the gas without snapping everyone’s head back. I took a buddy with me for the test drive. We were hooting and laughing like idiots. After the test drive, I told my mom I was buying it. She said: “Like hell you are! You’ll kill yourself in this car!” Since Mom and Dad were co-signing the loan, I had no choice.

“A few weeks later, my parents told me that they found a 1977 Pontiac LeMans Sport Coupe. I ended up buying it and quickly fell in love with it. The first winter I drove it, but it was terrible in the snow and the heater was crap. The next summer I had it repainted and it has not seen the winter since. About six months later I started dating the lady who is now my wife. She was way out of my league and I’m pretty sure the only reason she went out with me was because of the car! “We used the LeMans as our daily driver for many years. We strapped car seats into it when the kids were young. Every winter, we drove whatever winter beater we could afford. Some were pretty bad! I recently had the car repainted. It is now stored indoors and only driven on occasion. One day I will pass it down to one of the kids. I’ve now owned it for nearly 30 years!” Steve is the second owner

and bought the car on April 11, 1983 (six weeks after turning 16) for $3,900. He still has the bill of sale. Under the hood is a 350 V8 with 4 bbl carb. The car is all original except for a sun roof that Steve added when he was 17. The black vinyl interior was refinished a few years ago and the sun roof comes in handy since the car does not have A/C. Steve and his wife were married in 1989 and honeymooned in the Poconos. While they were there, a motorcycle cop pulled them over. Steve asked what was wrong. The officer said: “Nothing’s wrong. I just want to ask what year your car is. It’s beautiful!” I’m always looking for more stories. Email billtsherk@sympatico.ca or write Bill Sherk, 25 John St., P.O. Box 255, Leamington, ON N8H 3W2.

Reducing Christmas wrapping waste on Christmas morning EMC Lifestyle - Reduce the waste created by traditional Christmas gift wrapping with some of these old and new ideas. You will wonder why you ever used and threw away so much Christmas wrapping paper, ribbons and bows. Start by setting aside anything that looks like it might be useful, like the foil or fabric from flowers or plants, the trims off fancy gift boxes, stickers you get in the charitable donation requests, and the like. The container: Think beyond the box to cereal boxes, Christmas cookie tins, jars, wicker or fruit baskets. Use a clear plastic container and bury the gift with shredded coloured paper. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve or-

dered a gift by mail, just keep the gift in that box, skip the wrap and embellish it with ribbon, trims, and stickers. Packing: Reuse tissue paper or Styrofoam peanuts, or try real peanuts (in the shell) or popped popcorn. You can even use shredded white paper or put some too-smallto-be-usable coloured wrap through the shredder. Gift Bags: Purchased paper gift bags can be used multiple times, but arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recyclable. Handled shopping bags, brown or coloured are possibilities. Sew a fabric bag from colourful or Christmas fabric, or wrap gifts in old clothing. Wrap: Brown packages look classy with a coloured

bow, and the paper is recyclable, as are comics or newspaper. (Try black ribbon on the newspaper.) Old topo maps, road maps, or the ones you get with your National Geographic are interesting, as are childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s artwork and wallpaper. Kids will enjoy decorating plain white or parchment paper with potato or cork prints, rubber stamps, markers or stickers. Need large paper sheets? Use the paper that is folded around your EMC fliers, newsprint roll ends, or cut open another paper bag. Make the wrap part of the gift: You can wrap a gift in scarves, baby blankets, towels, tea towels, throws, t-shirts and so on. Tie with whatever

you have on hand or pin carefully. Tying: Tie your package with ribbon, string, twine, raffia or yarn. The cords from sweatshirts are good for tying or sewing into the neck of gift bags. Or be truly creative and try skipping ropes, bungee cords, or shoe laces. Trims: Embellish with anything reused or natural: small branches, shell, pinecones, or flowers, or a paper snowflake. Or consider a small gift like measuring spoons, a candy cane, a lollipop, or a hair scrunchie. Tags: Write directly on the package, or use labels or stickers. Cut up old greeting cards with pinking shears in rect-

angles, the recipientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s initial, or Christmassy shapes like mittens and bells. Cards can also be cut to fit the top side of a small package by way of decoration. Other Thoughts. ¡ Martha Stewart suggests opening up a potato chip bag so you can wrap a gift in the silvery foil inside. ¡ Look for online directions to create fused plastic gift bags using layers of plastic bags and an iron. ¡ Consider not wrapping the gift up at all, especially if you are going to present it immediately. ¡ Give gifts that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t require packaging! Purchased or homemade gift certificates

are easily wrapped in an envelope, and making a charitable donation or giving from a charitable gift catalogue are possibilities. ¡ If you are using traditional Christmas wrap, check with your municipality what they will take in their recycling programs. And donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be tempted to burn coloured paper in your fireplace. ¡ The REAL Deal is wellsupplied with cookie tins and wicker, and has some trims, bows and gift bags, too.

The car required no paint or upholstery when Neil bought it, but the rear end ratio was too high for highway driving and was replaced with a 3:07 gear out of a ’54 Hudson.

EMC Lifestyle - In 1948, the Hudson Motor Car Company brought out one of the most stunning postwar cars that ever hit the pavement. They were long, low, and wide, and known as “stepdown” Hudsons because the floor was cradled between the frame rails instead of above them. The Hudson Hornet was added to the lineup of cars in 1951 and it set all-time stock car records not with an overhead-valve V8 engine but with a flathead six engineered for maximum power and performance. With its low centre of gravity, it could slide around corners in races when

DRS awarded $38.7 million defence contract By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A Carleton Place-based technology firm has landed a major $38.7 million defence contract that will see 40 jobs created in the town. Associate National Defence Minister Bernard Valcourt made the announcement at DRS Technologies Canada Ltd.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Emily Street facility on Friday, Nov. 30. He said the company will manufacture 13,624 communication selector boxes and 4,937 power distribution units, which will be put into the Canadian Armed Forces tactical vehicle network. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is essential to the safety of our men and women in uniform,â&#x20AC;? said Valcourt during the press conference. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They play an important role in protecting us. In doing so, they put themselves at risk. We have a responsibility to give them the tools to keep them safe so that they can return home safely to their families.â&#x20AC;? Valcourt promised that the new technology would increase the speed with which troops in the field were able to

transmit and receive information, which â&#x20AC;&#x153;is critical to our troops. It can literally mean the difference between life and death. Imagine a solider being warned ahead of time of danger to his convoy.â&#x20AC;? DRS beat out five other Canadian companies in a competitive bidding process for the contract, which they received earlier this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was an open and transparent bidding process,â&#x20AC;? said Valcourt. The New Brunswick MP also noted that there were â&#x20AC;&#x153;ripple effects of defence procurements,â&#x20AC;? for the whole community, beyond the defence industry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is something we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talk enough about,â&#x20AC;? Valcourt said. The announcement was welcome news to the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s general manager and vice president, Steve Zuber. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d say today is a special day,â&#x20AC;? said Zuber. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel two feet above the ground right now.â&#x20AC;? Zuber pointed out that his company helped develop the deployable cockpit voice recorder or black box as it is more commonly known, back

MM proposes seven per cent tax levy increase By TIFFANY LEPACK tlepack@perfprint.ca

EMC New â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s number crunching time for the Town of Mississippi Mills. Going into the special finance, administration and policy committee meeting to address the second draft of the 2013 budget, councillors were presented with a $267,633 shortfall. However, by the end of the meeting they had crunched things down to only a $51,000 shortfall, and it was left to treasurer Rhonda Whitmarsh to propose additional savings. The current proposed bud-

Team

get has a levy increase of seven per cent. Therefore, for the average residential assessment of $270,000, taxes will be $2,997, a total change of $97.84 ($8.15 per month) or an overall increase of 3.37 per cent. This increase was reached after factoring in the proposed county and school rate increases, respectively at 2.2 per cent and .69 per cent. Residents will now have a chance to voice their opinions on the proposed budget at a public meeting scheduled for Jan. 8 at the municipal office. Coun. Alex Gillis support-

ed the increase because he believes it is doable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The reason we are going with seven per cent is we want to be able to address long-term debt and infrastructure questions the best we can,â&#x20AC;? he said after the meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What we are trying to do with the longterm financial plan is to lower debt and put money into the reserves. We will be able to finance projects from reserves. Yes, revenue is increased by seven per cent, but the impact is 3.37 per cent. We have to start to think for the long term and not year to year.â&#x20AC;? In fact, in 2013 the town

is set to put $543,220 towards its debt for tax-based projects, which currently sits at $7,512,500. By 2030 its long-term debt projection has the obligation down to only $4,520,576. In that time period the debt is never set to be more than $11,138,485. Whitmarsh came to council prepared, presenting a list of 14 suggested revisions, which were approved by the committee. One was to cut $3,000 for a training centre for the fire department (something the department would like but is not necessary). It was also cut

last year from the budget. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think the fire training centre should be chopped,â&#x20AC;? said Gillis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Three thousand is nothing.â&#x20AC;? At the last budget meeting council asked Troy Dunlop, director of roads and public works, for a capital budget based on the long term financial plan. At that meeting he was asked to provide an update on the condition of overall hard surface roads (180 km) and if the funding proposed would allow the town to catch up See LEVY page A/CP3 R0011715843_1101

in Afghanistan, where their technology was also used during the 2001-2011 military mission there. “With the electronics manufacturing we do for rugged terrain in places like Afghanistan,” said Zuber, a fair amount of “survivability,” has to be built into their

products. While Canada’s military missions in Afghanistan and Libya came to an end last year, Valcourt stressed that the contract was part of a larger “Canada-first defence strategy (which) is about modernizing our Canadian armed forces. It calls for in-

vestment over 20 years at a pace at which we invest in this.” But he added that the

investment “has to be in line with the fiscal situation,” at the time. “Canada is pulling

its weight with regards to the recession. We are not immune to the world-wide situation.”

or get further behind. He informed council they would not be gaining ground in the town’s infrastructure. Dunlop submitted a priority list based on rehabilitation to council totalling $318,065 for 16 hard topping projects. In discussing the proposal, Coun. Duncan Abbott supported the need for the increased roadwork in the budget.

“Troy couldn’t fill a pot hole with what was proposed, we have to be flexible and do what we have to do,” he said. “He couldn’t do it, that’s why we are over or we would have been driving in mud.” “It’s a good opportunity to get roads done and it is up to us to fight for good roads,” said Coun. Denzil Ferguson during the meeting. To help reduce the shortfall it was approved to take out

$50,000 from the roadwork budget and Dunlop was tasked to cut projects to make up the difference. Other cuts that were approved included $10,000 for the day-care centre paving project, which per the director can wait until 2014. Transfer to reserves was reduced by $71,464 to $51,000.

WINTER PARKING Overnight Parking Ban

In 2011, Carleton Place Town Council enacted significant changes to the Town’s policy on winter parking. The parking restrictions that will be in effect with the coming winter season are conceptually similar to the system used by the City of Ottawa. In short this means: 1. Any time Environment Canada forecasts a snowfall of 7 cm or more an overnight parking ban will be in effect. This includes any forecast that calls for a range of snowfall exceeding 7 cm (i.e. 5 to 10 cm). 2. When this ban is in effect parking is prohibited on all town streets between 11 pm and 7 am to allow for snow clearing operations. Vehicles parked in violation of the ban will be ticketed and towed to the Public Library Parking Lot at 101 Beckwith St. 3. Town staff has been directed to determine the most efficient means to notify the public when a parking ban has been issued for the Town of Carleton Place. This will include notification being posted on the home page of the municipal website (http://www.carletonplace.ca/). Notification will also be posted on Twitter (www. twitter.com/Carleton_Place) and Facebook (www.facebook.com/carletonplacetownhall). Citizens are urged to check this website if in doubt.

Planned Snow Removal Operations At times Carleton Place Public Works Department will actively remove snow banks when the weather is favourable to do so. Removal operations generally occur during the overnight periods but can take place during the daytime as well. Temporary no parking signs will be posted to inform residents removal operations will be taking place and they are not to park on the streets marked with signs. Vehicles parking within designated removal area will be ticketed and towed to a nearby street.

Fines

our streets can be cleared of snow in a timely and efficient manner. Any resident with questions about winter parking restrictions should feel free to contact Les Reynolds, Director of Protective Services at 613-257-5526 or lreynolds@carletonplace.ca for more information.

Habitat for Humanity dedicates Carleton Place houses By TARA GESNER tgesner@perfprint.ca

Dream The dream of homeownership for Carleton Place’s Mitchell and Shaver families was made possible thanks to the support of Marilyn Vavasour for Reid House and the Canadian Institute of Plumbing and Heating (CIPH), as well as Bonneville Homes,

many suppliers, sponsors, tradespeople, donors and volunteers. “We are here to celebrate the generosity of many people,” said Johannes Ziebarth, president of Habitat NCR, “and tonight’s dedication marks a new life for the Mitchell and Shaver families.” “As a result, nine children have a safe home to live in,” he added. Ziebarth’s company has participated in 37 of Habitat NCR’s 40 builds. “It is wonderful to have a president who leads by example,” said Hicks. The recent build is the first of its kind for Habitat for Humanity in North America. It features an innovative partnership with Bonneville Homes to deliver two side-by-side pre-engineered houses and the addition of hydronic in-floor heating from CIPH. “It is another first for us, and we love to be first,” said Hicks with a smile. “On behalf of my family and Missy’s family, ‘thank you’,” said Ed Shaver. “You have made our dream of home ownership possible.” On Aug. 24, crews and heavy machinery hoisted the semi-detached bungalow modules off trucks and onto the waiting concrete foun-

Platinum sponsors Vavasour, an Ottawa native now residing in Calgary, donated the home bequeathed to her by Ottawa lawyer Jim Reid to Habitat NCR. The two-storey house in the city’s west-end community of Qualicum was gutted and renovated from top to bottom

– thanks to the help of 150 companies and more than 300 volunteers. It was sold as “The Gift Home,” raising in the region of $1 million. Above and beyond the Mitchell home in Carleton Place, the money permitted the purchase of land in the Ottawa area for future Habitat homes. Vavasour has enjoyed working with Habitat. During last week’s dedication, she said, “All I had to do

The company creates and presents custom prefabricated homes using trendsetting designs and cutting-edge construction techniques. The partnership with Habitat NCR echoes the original vision for the company, which was founded by PaulÉmile Bonneville more than 50 years ago. “It was an easy decision for us to get on board,” said Dany Bonneville, co-president, sales, marketing and administration. A surprise, he gifted both the Mitchell and Shaver families with $500 in groceries. Establish almost 20 years ago, Habitat NCR is a volunteer, non-profit organization that builds simple, decent and affordable homes and sells them with no-interest mortgages to low-income, working families.

EMC News – It was a packed house in Carleton Place last Thursday night, Nov. 28, as a number of people turned out for the dedication and blessing of Habitat for Humanity National Capital Region’s (NCR) 39th and 40th homes, located at 119121 Sarah St. These are the second and third homes in town to be constructed by the organization. “Carleton Place is very welcoming,” said Donna Hicks, chief executive officer (CEO) of Habitat NCR, “and it takes a series of small miracles to undertake a special build like this one.” She noted the overwhelming support of Mayor Wendy LeBlanc and council, in addition to director Lisa Young and others in the planning and development department. “A connected community is a strong community,” said LeBlanc. Over and above a caring town, Hicks highlighted the inspiration and energy of the Habitat NCR board, which is committed to making sure families have a safe and decent place to live.” “We also have the best staff at Habitat for Humanity National Capital Region,” she continued. “They work long hours – certainly making more money if they worked in the private sector.”

was sign the house over and come to a party.” CIPH’s gift funded the construction of the Shaver family’s home. Moreover, the association is providing the materials and professional trades to equip the homes with a hydronic in-floor heating system. John Hammill, CIPH board chair, and Bob Lagasse, CIPH build chair, were both in attendance on Nov. 28. Since 1994, CIPH has assisted Habitat for Humanity across Canada to the tune of more than $8 million. “This number will continue to grow,” said Hammill. He added the company believes in Habitat’s “hand up, not a hand out” philosophy. Lagasse called Carleton Place’s Sarah Street one of the smoothest and best builds. Established in 1961, Bonneville Homes is a fourth-generation family-run business.


OPINION

Canadian Gazette - Your Community Newspaper

EDITORIAL

Calling foul on domestic violence EMC Editorial – Jovan Belcher’s final foul turned out to be his most deadly. As you have likely heard by now, the 25-yearold Kansas City Chiefs linebacker brought the issue of domestic violence back into sharp focus this week, with news that he had shot his girlfriend, Kasandra M. Perkins, 22, the mother of their three month-old daughter, on Saturday, Dec. 1. He then drove to Arrowhead Stadium and, after thanking coach Romeo Crennel and general manager Scott Pioli for all they had done for him, walked away and shot himself, either too cowardly, or remorseful, likely both, to face the consequences of his dreadful actions. While domestic violence occurs 365 days a year, the incident was all the more prevalent because of the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women in Canada today (Thursday,

Dec. 6). While details are still emerging about Belcher and Perkins’ life together, it does not matter whether Belcher raised the hand to her every day, or whether his gun attack was the first, last, and only violent incident in their life together – it is still domestic violence. Certainly we are aware of other sports stars from different genres – hockey, professional wrestling, football, et cetera – have also taken their own lives because of different reasons from untreated depression to concussions. But it still doesn’t matter. Untreated wounds are no excuse to lash out at someone else. We’ll give you sympathy when you seek treatment. The powers that be in the National Football League made the right decision – the only decision they could, really – to dedicate a moment of silence not in Belcher’s memory, but in memory

of the victims of domestic violence, at this past Sunday’s Kansas City versus Carolina game. That game recalled to mind an earlier game, when violence of a different sort intruded on a sporting event, when sportscaster Howard Cosell announced John Lennon’s death during the “Monday Night Football,” Miami Dolphins versus New England Patriots game on Dec. 8, 1980. Another example of a life snuffed out, this earlier one leaving behind a widow, Yoko Ono, and two of Lennon’s sons to grow up without their father. It’s an unsettling mix, when the controlled violence of football, to borrow a phrase from Toronto Star columnist Cathal Kelly, meets with real world violence. For the Chiefs, they face the difficult dilemma that they cannot really mourn the loss of one of their own, because of how he died, and what

he did just before he died, robbing them of closure. “We lost two members of the Chiefs family,” said team chairman Clark Hunt, quoted in The Toronto Star. But it goes beyond the Chiefs. Sportscaster Bob Costas used some time during Sunday’s game to say that if Belcher did not have access to a gun, both Belcher and Perkins would be alive. We understand his frustration, but recent news reports have pointed out

orphaned child. We hope that that child can grow up in a world where people don’t have to wear ribbons against violence, where we don’t have to have moments of silence for the victims, and where children don’t grow up as orphans. And in a world where football players can keep their head in the game and not have to be wiping away tears on the sidelines at the incomprehensible nature of the past 48 hours.

Embracing Almonte’s local history EMC Editorial – There is something about local history that fascinates me. As a history major I have always taken a keen interest in how our country was formed and what has brought us to where we are today. I even lean more towards historical movies and last week dragged my husband to see Lincoln, which if you are a history buff or not I would encourage you to go and see. I am lucky when my job lets me write on my favourite subject and in the past few weeks I have been able to write a few stories on local history. First, I was able to sit down and chat with Robert Newton on his new documentary Almonte’s Interwoven Past. I was captivated as he passionately explained his desire to capture Almonte’s history on film for future generations. Most people in town are surely familiar with James Naismith and R. Tait McKenzie but Newton has discovered so much more on the town’s roots. The film will premiere Saturday, Dec. 8 at Almonte Old Town Hall, doors open at 6:30 p.m. and show starts at 7:15 p.m. For only $10 you can take a seat and watch history unfold.

that Belcher’s guns were legal, and, hard but true to say, there are other ways to kill. But the women who go into battle every day don’t have padding or helmets. Their opponents always fight dirty and cheat. There is no opportunity to leave things on the playing field after the clock runs out and have a beer afterwards. It’s constant. Most importantly to remember in all of this is the victim, and the now-

TIFFANY LEPACK Tiffany’s Take part in the history books when it comes to the railway. Unbeknownst to me until a few weeks a go, I was unaware of the crash that was literally heard around the world. This Dec. 27 marks the 70th anniversary of the Almonte train wreck, which claimed the lives of 39 people and injured more than 200. I thoroughly enjoyed sitting at the Almonte Library last week glued to the microfilm machine looking over old editions of the Almonte Gazette. You can learn so much by reading primary documents from another time period. Next week, I will bring you part two in my series on the train wreck, an interview with the last known survivor. It was not an easy interview, hearing him describe in detail how bodies flew over him and how it haunts him to this day. But I believe it is a valuable piece of history we need to document and remember. I am glad that our town has people like Doreen Wilson, volunteer manager of the North Lanark Regional Museum and the historical

society who advocated for a special memorial to mark this occasion. The memorial will take place on Dec. 20 at 7 p.m. called ‘The Memorial Tribute on the 70th Anniversary of the Train Wreck’. It will take place at the train wreck monument on Mill Street with a reception afterwards at Almonte Old Town Hall. It was a privilege to sit with Wilson and Sarah Bennett at the museum as we dived through the pages of history. The historical society should also be congratulated for their continued efforts with the fifth edition of The Almonte Train Accident book that has documented survivor’s memories of the horrific crash. Kudos also goes to the Town of Mississippi Mills who is hosting the event and the reception at the Old Town Hall. This is something important for Almonte and all of the communities in the Valley to mark. This is a significant event in our community that should never be forgotten, residents came together to show the true spirit of Almonte then and residents now should do the same.

DEAR EDITOR: My husband and I recently celebrated our 20-year anniversary. In the world we live in today this is a huge deal and something we are proud of. Obviously my 74 year-old mother is proud as well, which is why she took the time to go to the store, purchase a beautiful card and mail it to us with $20 inside for 20 years. My mother sent our card three

  days prior to our anniversary date, but the card arrived seven days after our anniversary. It was bent and the edges of the envelope were tattered. I was suspicious of the condition of the card, but I opened it and read it thinking how thoughtful of my mother to send us a card for our milestone anniversary. In the card she had written kind words, along with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Buy yourselves a winning lottery ticketâ&#x20AC;? and closing with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Love Mom.â&#x20AC;? I called my mother to thank her for thinking of us and found out only then that she had enclosed $20 in the card for us (mystery solved on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Buy yourselves a winning ticketâ&#x20AC;?). The tattered envelope contained only the beautiful card â&#x20AC;&#x201C; no $20. I find it hard to grasp that a human being could open someone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mail, read the thoughtfulness of the card, take the contents out and then proceed to glue it shut and mail it to the intended recipient. This blows my mind. I know, I know you are all thinking never send cash in the mail, but think about the generation of the sender of this thoughtful gift. This is the generation where a handshake means your word and the generation

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Hope you enjoyed our anniversary present: reader where you put your trust in the kindness of strangers. Trust period. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine that we are the only victims of this such person, so all I can say is that I hope you are proud of yourself and that you put our anniversary present to good use â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you obviously needed it more than we did. Sincerely Lynn Bishop Carleton Place

Perplexed over mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comments

DEAR EDITOR: I read the letter â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mayor refutes letterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s allegationsâ&#x20AC;? in the Canadian Gazette EMC and I must admit I found it more than a little perplexing that the mayor stated that â&#x20AC;&#x153;as generally misinformation and misunderstanding of the issues could be cleared up with a simple telephone call or email to myself, other council members or staff.â&#x20AC;? For three months between June and September of this year I communicated with town staff and council members by email regarding the Carleton Place Code of Conduct â&#x20AC;&#x201C; bylaw 51-2009, section 5, sub-section 3: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The above policy does not preclude members of council from accepting viii) Gifts of a nominal value that are received as an incident of protocol or social obligation including attending a sporting event that normally and reasonably accompany the responsibility of the office.â&#x20AC;? My concern with this section of the bylaw relates to what is deemed to be â&#x20AC;&#x153;nominal valueâ&#x20AC;? and that there was no upper monetary limit associated with this. Furthermore, in accepting such a gift would contradict section 1a of the bylaw that states, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The professional and personal conduct of members of council must be above reproach and avoid even the appearance of impropriety.â&#x20AC;? To date, I do not understand why there continues to be a contradiction in the Code of Conduct bylaw and moreso, why the town allows council and staff to receive gifts of â&#x20AC;&#x153;nominal value.â&#x20AC;? Whatever value they might be is unknown. I also suggested that the town create a public register of gifts received by council and staff so there was no question of transparency in this area. I never received a reply to this idea. I must commend Gary Strike for taking this issue to council on my behalf (my suggested amendments to the bylaw were struck down and the text remains as is) as well as Louis Antonakos for speaking on this issue. However, I was disappointed that the mayor and several other members of council did not take the time to discuss this issue with me in person, even though I saw them numerous times at the farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; market over the summer months.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Lanark County Food Bank thanks its many supporters DEAR EDITOR: Thanks to the many supporters of the Lanark County Food Bank, we are entering the holiday season with shelves that are well stocked and contain a variety of essential food items. Every year at this time the people and businesses of our area show their generosity and support by participating in several locally sponsored events. As a result of participation in the Halloween parade in Carleton Place at the end of October, over 1,000 pounds of food was collected for the food bank. This is an annual event that we are involved in each year and our thanks go out to all those who made a food or monetary donation. Paul and Donna Sorfleet from Valley Design in Carleton Place provided assistance with the collection and delivery of donations to the food bank. Our biggest and most successful event of the year, the Build a Mountain Campaign, resulted in collecting over 6,000 pounds of food and over $1,000 in donations. This is

the fourth consecutive year of the Build a Mountain Campaign, and each year we are amazed by the support from local business and the public. We would like to give a very special thank you to Hugh Colton with Town and Country Chrysler in Smiths Falls for organizing and promoting this event. James Smith from Lake 88.1 Radio Station in Perth also helped to get the word out by promoting the Build a Mountain Campaign over the airwaves. Several local retailers, including Steve’s Independent (Carleton Place), FreshCo (Carleton Place), Giant Tiger (Carleton Place) and Patrice’s Independent (Almonte) supported the Build a Mountain Campaign by putting together pre-packaged grocery bags for shoppers to purchase. Members of the local Rotary Club volunteered their time and muscle power to move and unload all the donations at the food bank. We appreciate all their help on this very busy day. The final event of this year

was the Carleton Place Santa Clause Parade on Nov. 24. As a result, the food bank collected over 3,000 pounds of food. Special thanks to the Civitan Club in Carleton Place for collecting donations along the parade route and looking after the delivery to the food bank. In addition, Cathie McOrmond with the Carleton Place BIA makes sure that the food bank is included in the both local parades every year. The Lanark County Food Bank receives a great deal of support from several local churches and schools in the area through monthly donations or special food drives. We would like to thank Father Gus and the 1st communion group at St. Mary’s Parish in Carleton Place for their generous donation. John and Lana Spinks organized a concert held at the Almonte arena on Nov. 23, to collect food and monetary donations for the food bank. This concert, which featured several local musicians, was a great success and they were able to raise over $1800 and collect

about 240 pounds of food. On the financial side of things, we would like to thank Ben McNeely from Kelly, Huibers and McNeely for preparing our year-end accounts and tax return. In addition, our bookkeeper, Lynda Burger was kind enough to prepare our monthly accounts for the year. During the past year, Jeff McMaster of Royal LePage Gale Real Estate helped the food bank by picking up and disposing of all of our cardboard. This results in more time for our volunteers to look after requests from clients and stock shelves. Poverty affects many individuals, families and our community in general. In the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark Counties one in 10 families and one in nine children are living in poverty. Many of these people rely on the assistance provided by their local food banks. At the Lanark County Food Bank we are well aware of the impact that poverty has on many families in the area. The food bank helps close to

550 people monthly and the number is constantly increasing. On average, there are approximately 12 new applicants every month. For 2012, Food Banks Canada is reporting the number of people in Ontario using food banks is now 413,000 – of which, 38.6 per cent are children. Overall, between 2008 and 2012, there has been a 31.4 per cent increase in food bank use in the

into other drastic measures like deferring payments for food, medication or even basic housing should be a growing concern among many of local taxpayers. Canada used to be a country in which people did not have to worry about losing their homes because of high property taxes. It is quickly

becoming a quality of life issue and human rights one. What is happening in many U.S. states is that residents have begun voting with their feet, deciding to move out of the state instead of thinning their pockets through unwanted and exorbitant taxation. The idea has crossed my mind, as well as that of my

neighbour. Mr. Barlow’s letter should serve as a red flag to the silent majority in Mississippi Mills that we are quickly reaching the tipping point! Robert Brunton Appleton

A number of bird sightings throughout the area EMC Lifestyle – In Corkery area last week, Ray Sample had several Dark-eyed Juncos, Blue Jays, a male Northern Cardinal, Red-breasted Nuthatch and both Downy and Hairy Woodpeckers. His feeders and yard are very busy. Ray mentioned his neighbour had a Pine Grosbeak, Evening Grosbeaks and a flock of Snow Buntings. While Ray was hunting, he heard a Ruffed Grouse drumming. These are all nice winter birds for our area. The Monday walking group, made up of 14 people on Nov. 26, had an interesting walk on Pakenham Mountain.

EMC News – Service clubs change the community for the better by fundraising and volunteering, and they are always looking to recruit new members. On Nov. 1, the Carleton Place & District Civitan Club held an open house at the Community Living Association (Lanark County) building – where the club meets at 7 p.m. on the first and third Thursday of every month. Festivities included the reciting of the Civitan Creed, refreshments and mingling, and the installation of three new members, Rob Aitkenhead, Jeff Lay and Brian Tysick. Bryan Wiltsie and Bill Lawrence, governor and lieutenant governor of Canadian District East (CDE), respectively, attended. “In three words, Civitan is service, knowledge and fellowship,” said member Tom Baker. Sue Baker, Tom’s wife, is president of the local organization. He explained there are a number of benefits of being a Civitan member: helping others, acquiring valuable leadership skills, travelling (area and district meetings and the international convention), meeting new friends and enjoying social activities. Membership is open to

adults aged 18 years and older. The Carleton Place & District Civitan Club is in the CDE, which is comprised of 15 service clubs. “Our chapter serves Carleton Place and Beckwith,” said Tom. The motto of Civitan: Builders of Good Citizenship, and “our aim is to improve our communities through helping others,” he added. The installation of new members is one of the most enjoyable things for Wiltsie to do as governor. His term runs from October to September. “I became governor (of CDE) on Oct. 1,” he said. Wiltsie is associated with the Smiths Falls chapter of Civitan, while Lawrence comes from Almonte. “This year I am challenging all clubs to see who can bring in the most new members,” said Wiltsie. “Right now, Petawawa is leading with four.” About Civitan Tom explained Civitan was founding in Birmingham, Alabama in 1917, and the International Association of Civitans was established three years later on April 15. There are almost 55,000 men, women and young people (Junior Civitan) in nearly 1,800 Civitan clubs in approximately 20 countries around the globe.

“Helping people with disabilities is our major emphasis,” said Tom. He noted Civitan’s support the Civitan International Research Centre for the research and treatment of developmental disabilities. The world-class centre receives more than $1 million each year from clubs. The three levels of Civitan are club, district and international. “The local club is the most important part of Civitan,” said Tom. “It’s the heart of Civitan and it’s here at the club level that things really happen.” Over the years, the Carleton Place & District Civitan Club has been involved in many projects.

Canadian country artist John Landry plays Almonte Old Town Hall Dec. 14

R0011784841_1206

House, an increasingly popular dinner and concert destination in the upper Ottawa Valley. Mapleton House is located at Hardwood Lake, near Palmer Rapids. All three shows begin at 8 p.m. and ticket information appears at the end of this story. Morgan Adams, who runs Ottawa-based Northern Star Management, is the promoter behind Landry’s holiday season visit to the region. He says the Mapleton House show will be the second in as many years for the popular country artist. “Last Christmas we did a show with John (at Mapleton House). The place was absolutely packed. People came from as far away as Keswick (in the Lake Simcoe region) to see John play,” Adams outlines. The concert promoter notes that all three venues are relatively intimate locations which will add to the atmosphere. “These are big shows for places like Greenfield’s and the Old Town Hall in Almonte. It’s not every day someone of John’s caliber plays smaller venues so I’m hopeful people will respond to these rare opportunities,” Adams states. Music mixture The brief tour is entitled ‘John Landry’s Holiday Wish’ however Adams says it will feature a good mix of music. “John will play his regular hits and after the intermission he’ll incorporate some Christmas stuff as a salute to the season.” At Greenfield’s on Dec. 13 Landry, a Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) award winner, will be backed by the popular band South Mountain. The group features guitarist Steve Piticco from Brighton, Ontario. They will

also appear with Landry in Almonte and at Mapleton House. “Some of the younger folks are into him (Landry),” Adams observes. But he quickly adds that South Mountain’s music is especially popular “with the 40s and 50s crowd. “John has quite a bit behind him and I know people will enjoy his shows.” As an added incentive to people planning to attend the Greenfield’s show, the opening set will be performed by legendary Ottawa entertainer Lucky Ron. “He has a big following in the city,” Adams says. At Almonte Old Town Hall and Mapleton House the opening set will be performed by Ottawa’s Lynne Hanson who is currently very busy. She is building a strong following of her own. Hanson began writing her own songs in 2006 and has since released three albums including the most recent titled ‘Once the Sun Goes Down’ in 2010. She describes her style as “porch music with a little Texas red d irt.” Critics have called her voice “captivating.” In March Hanson toured the United Kingdom supporting Nashville-based songstress Gretchen Peters. In April she performed several shows in Germany. More recently, in October, she returned to Europe for a series of shows in Ireland, Scotland and England. The 42-year-old Landry launched his debut album ‘Forever Took too Long’ in 1999. Two singles from the CD “There You Were” and “Bit by Bit” both reached the Canadian country singles Top 10. The same year he was named Rising Star of the Year by the CCMA. In 2000 Landry was nomi-

nated for a Juno in the Best Country Male Artist category. Also in 2000 he was the CCMA Male Artist of the Year. Due to Landry’s popularity in particular, Adams is urging fans to purchase their tickets early. Tickets for the December shows in Ottawa and the Valley are now available. For the Greenfield’s performance tickets can be purchased for $20 each at the premises located at 900 Greenbank Road,

Nepean or by telephoning 613823-9900 or 613-401-0856. For the Almonte Old Town Hall performance tickets can be purchased for $25 each at Mississippi Mills Music Works, 453 Ottawa Street, Unit 5, Almonte. Telephone 613-256-7464 for information. In Carleton Place tickets are available at SRC Music, 124 Moore Street. Telephone 613253-0263. At Mapleton House tickets for a buffet meal and the show

can be purchased for $40 while the concert only is $25 per person. They are available at the venue located on Highway 28, RR 2 Palmer Rapids. Call 613758-2182. Tickets can also be bought at the Griffith General Store. Call Don Adams (Morgan’s father) at 613-333-2240. For all three performances printable e-tickets are available on-line at www.northernstarmanagement.ca. Submitted by Jeff Maguire.

EMC Entertainment – Country music fans in Ottawa and the Valley are in for a preChristmas treat when Junonominated Canadian country artist John Landry performs in three smaller venues Dec. 13-15. The Gaspé, Quebec born country music star has a large following nation-wide and the fact Landry is now a member of the Canadian Armed Forces is likely to win him even more friends. Captain John Landry is currently stationed in Gander, Newfoundland and is part of “The Outcasts”, 103 Search and Rescue Squadron. The rescue squadron flies CH-109 Cormorant helicopters from one of the busiest bases in Canada. Landry has continued to write and record. He recently released his fourth CD which, appropriately, is titled ‘Changing Man.’ He describes it as “a true reflection of my life over the past few years. “I got married, started a family and joined the Canadian Air Force. I’d say things have been changing for me,” he chuckles. “My decision to join the Air Force did not happen overnight,” he explains. “It’s been a lifelong dream to fly for the military.” In mid-December he returns to his first love, country music! Beginning Thursday, Dec. 13 he will play three shows in as many nights in Eastern Ontario. Landry will open his Christmas season tour at Greenfield’s Pub and Eatery in Barrhaven Mall on Dec. 13. The next night (Friday, Dec. 14) he will perform at the Almonte Old Town Hall, 14 Bridge Street, Almonte. On Saturday, Dec. 15 he will headline a show at Mapleton

Hub Hospice set to hold information session Dec. 13 By TIFFANY LEPACK tlepack@perfprint.ca

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Hub has been a community institute for 39 years and now local volunteers have their eyes focused on their next major project. Glenda Jones is the president at the Hub, which is the name of the community store located at 188 Mill St. in Almonte. However, the store is run by the organization of the Almonte Community Coordinators. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Its role is to provide funds to the community,â&#x20AC;? explained Jones. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has given more than $50,000 back to the community.â&#x20AC;? Jones recently explained to the Canadian Gazette EMC the Hub is there to fill needs in the community. They started by raising money for the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) when it first opened, they have supported the hospital, other local charities and were also instrumental in funding Interval House. The new endeavour is the Hub Hospice Palliative Care in Mississippi Mills, which is a non-profit project dedicated to providing services to those in need, without charge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Hub is really proud of what we are doing; our whole membership and board has been on board since the start,â&#x20AC;? said Jones. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They realize the importance of it.â&#x20AC;? Julia Thomas a founding member of the Hub, came up with the idea that the community really needed palliative care. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are dying at home all the time and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a gap in our health care system in our area,â&#x20AC;? said Jones. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From Mississippi Mills to Renfrew there is no good network of in-home care â&#x20AC;&#x201D; nothing.â&#x20AC;? In February it was decided that they would establish a hospice palliative care centre in Mississippi Mills. Since then the volunteers have been working vigorously to make their dream a reality. They formed a steering committee of five volunteers at the end of February and have been meeting with every health care agency in the area to research more information on the ser-

Many community groups are supporting the Hub Hospice including the Almonte Seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Expo Committee which recently presented a $500 cheque to the Hub Hospice. Proceeds raised from the second annual Seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Expo, which was hosted by the Almonte Baptist Church, Mills Community Support Corporation and the Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Society of Lanark County. Pictured: Karen Timmons from the Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Society of Lanark County, Jan Watson, Mills Community Support. vices they will be providing. On Nov. 19, Jones addressed Mississippi Mills town council to make it aware of the project. Some councillors had a few questions but they were overall supportive of the new initiative. At the end of October a board of directors was appointed comprised of Christine Bois, Duncan Abbott, Shirley Deugo, Diane James, Pat Martin, Jane Henderson, Garry Pollock, Eloise Caverson and Jones. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are people we have picked who we knew were interested and would do a good job. They were all in right from the first ask,â&#x20AC;? said Jones. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are all on the same page and understand what needs to be done.â&#x20AC;? The steering committee is still in place and the Hub will still operate it until the paper work is processed with the government to grant them charitable status, approximately six months. Services The Hub Hospice hopes to offer a number of services free of charge in the personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home, long-term care facility or wherever they call â&#x20AC;&#x153;homeâ&#x20AC;? including: emotional/caregiver support, respite, light housekeeping, meal preparation and more.

Jones believes it is the role of the volunteer to be companions to the patient and family at the most stressful time they will every go through. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to die in the hospital; 70 per cent of deaths occur at the home in the rural area,â&#x20AC;? said Jones. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really by choice; they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to go to the hospital.â&#x20AC;? Jones explained that the hospice is a team approach with

nurses, doctors, pharmacists and everyone being involved. The committee recently came up with a mission statement for the Hub Hospice: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Hub Hospice will provide free palliative care to those suffering from a life limiting or terminal illness. Hospice care includes a holistic approach to clients and their families, respecting culture, dignity and personal preferences. Our service will

be confidential at all times.â&#x20AC;? Jones explained they worked a long time at coming up with the right statement that will guide them into the future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then we started thinking, what about me? How would I want to be treated,â&#x20AC;? said Jones. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What we got is pretty much what hospice does.â&#x20AC;? Next steps Jones is very thankful that the community has been so supportive with everything from asking questions, to signing up to volunteering to generous donations. The next step is to hire a volunteer co-ordinator. The goal is to have this person in place early in the new year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They will be the one who brings it all together. They will be a key person in running everything,â&#x20AC;? said Jones. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This person will make sure the volunteer is a good fit with the family.â&#x20AC;? They also hope to have volunteer training in the spring, which would consist of a 13 week, 36-hour Hospice Association of Ontario training course for 20 volunteers. The cost would be a minimal fee to cover the materials. The Hub Hospice is currently working out of a donated office at St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Anglican Church in Almonte and the

goal is to eventually have the office staffed for 20 hours per week with a 24 hour answering service. On Dec. 13, the Hub Hospice is hosting an information evening with Dr. Louise Coulombe who founded the Community Palliative Care Network in 1996 at the urging of patients who wished to die at home. Dr. Coulombe is donating her time to help those who are interested understand this valuable community service. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a chance to find out what the new service is about and is open to anyone who is interested,â&#x20AC;? said Jones. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is the best opportunity for the community to come together and hear a professional who has dealt with palliative care for a long time and can give us the best of what it can do for the community.â&#x20AC;? The information session will be at Almonte Presbyterian Church located at 111 Church St. starting at 7:30 p.m. After the address there will be refreshments and a time to socialize and learn about the Hub Hospice/palliative care. Admission is free however donations to the Hub Hospice will be accepted. For more information on the Hub Hospice visit: www.hubhospice.com.

Thoughts of Christmas in the air at Christmas Tree Farmers of Ontario field day

Submitted photo

Paul Ralph is seen here pruning some trees at Cedar Hill Christmas Tree Farm, Pakenham. The farm played host to the Christmas Tree Farmers of Ontario tour Sept. 15.

plants looked healthy and vigorous although Paul explained they had been irrigated and each little tree had its own berm to hold the water so it could soak down to the roots. Paul, Hannah and Don gave pruning demonstrations and everyone exchanged ideas about how to achieve that perfect Christmas tree. Don gave an excellent demonstration on traditional pruning with clippers. Then Hannah demonstrated power pruners. One of the latest developments in tree pruning is the use of gas or battery powered pruners. They are very fast and efficient, are easy on the operator, and give very nicely shaped trees. Ria organized a workshop on making wreaths, swags, and Christmas pot and urn fillers. Riaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wreaths are made with Fraser fir greens freshly cut from the farm so they will brighten your home not just for the Christmas season, but all winter long without losing needles. She demonstrated how to make bows and everyone exchanged ideas on what worked best. One person gave an excellent demonstration on how to work with colourful mesh. The urns and wreaths the tree growers sell in November and December make homes festive and welcoming with natural materials just as ancestors have done for gen-

erations. In the afternoon the discussion shifted to the equipment used at Cedar Hill for preparing the soil and planting in the spring. Stump grinding to remove the old stumps and the transplanter were interesting to see. Providing nutrition and controlling weeds to allow for healthy vigorous trees generated many questions and lively discussion. A final topic was how to market the product across Ontario. Everyone agreed that the tree farm â&#x20AC;&#x153;experienceâ&#x20AC;? along with beautiful farm grown trees was the key. The various facilities provided at Cedar Hill were discussed. Many Ontario tree farms including Cedar Hill provide homemade treats, bonfires, horsedrawn sleigh rides, straw playgrounds, sliding hills, and much more. A discussion took place with regards to Dec. 8 being declared National Christmas Tree Day. There will be special activities at most tree farms to mark this day. Everyone left Cedar Hill at the end of the day with new friendships and ideas about how to make the Christmas season exciting and fun for all ages. Submitted by Cedar Hill Christmas Tree Farm.

EMC Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Christmas in September? At Cedar Hill Christmas Tree Farm the topic was fresh farm grown Christmas trees when the Christmas Tree Farmers of Ontario gathered for the annual field day on Sept. 15. The day began with Paul and Ria welcoming the 75 participants to eastern Ontario and explaining how the farm had been settled in the 1820â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s by the Forsythe family and had progressed through many phases such as lumbering, dairy and beef farming, berry farming, and finally to the growing of beautiful Christmas trees. First on the agenda was a tractor and wagon farm tour where the 40 acres of trees planted around the farm were enjoyed. The various species of trees that make good Christmas trees were discussed along with their outstanding characteristics: Fraser fir holding its needles for months, balsam fir filling your home with that beautiful evergreen fragrance, and blue and white spruce providing strong well-spaced branches to make decorating easy. It was amazing to see how lush and green and healthy the trees that were ready for harvest were after the dry, hot summer they had endured. Even the newly planted trans-

Interestingly, over such a long period nothing has changed. The values are the same. People continue to reach out

to ensure that no one is left without a traditional Christmas dinner. Baskets contain so much more than just one meal. There are many staples that will help out over the winter months when food is so expensive.

It is also been the tradition in recent years for the Lionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Club to donate excess funds, should they be available, to the food bank, and this year will be no different. The Mills Community Support Corporation is building a list of families that

National Restorative Justice Week takes place at NDCHS EMC News – Notre Dame Catholic High School (NDCHS) participated in the Canada wide National Restorative Justice Week, an event held all across the country to raise awareness about the benefits of restorative practice, which is an approach to justice that revolves around meeting the needs of the offenders and victims as opposed to the traditional form of retribution for the offender. This year, it was held from November 1518, and focused on the theme “Diverse Needs, Unique Responses.” The week consisted of a daily prayer for each day of the week, an effort made by the entire school, and an outstanding presentation. The Lanark County Community Justice Program approached NDCHS to host guest speaker Katy Hutchinson. She shared with the school and community her personal journey to find justice using restorative practices. Her moving presentation clearly defined the importance of restorative practices and her message set the tone for the week. Hutchison was welcomed to NDCHS by the Notre Dame Peer Restorative (PR) team, which was very active in her visit to the school. Members of the team prepared a banner and posters that were posted around

the school. They welcomed her and introduced her to a packed gymnasium where she gave her moving presentation about the need to restore relationships in the wake of wrongdoing. Hutchison’s husband was killed, but she has worked with the offenders to restore peace to her own life as well as to theirs. After her powerful presentation, Hutchison said she never received a better welcome than here at NDCHS. She has visited more than 500 schools. The Notre Dame PR Team is important to the school because “…the process fits in really well with our gospel values: forgiveness, acceptance of the other, compassion; all in the goal to become the best version of ourselves,” said Brenda Reinkeleurs, a member of NDCHS’ Chaplaincy staff. “Mrs. R”, as she is affectionately known at the school, also guides the school’s PR Team and assists in all their activities. Students on the PR Team are chosen by the principal and Mrs. R to be impartial third party mediators on issues in and involving the school environment. Under Mrs. R’s guidance, these students facilitate bringing a deeper understanding and reconciliation where there are situations that lead to conflict within the school. This

process is exemplified in confidential one on one mediation sessions as well as “circles”, where the various parties involved in the conflict meet with one another to discuss the situation and to resolve any hurt feelings. In addition to the Peer Restorative Team at NDCHS, the school also uses restorative practices in the classroom. The entire class participates in a restorative circle, where issues in the classroom are discussed and conclusions for positive change are made. Phil Abele, a Grade 10 student at NDCHS, is a facilitator for these circles in his religion class. He is also a member of the PR Team and is trained to facilitate these meetings. Around once every two weeks, the class gathers in a circle (where everyone is equal). Questions are asked like: what is going well in the classroom? What is going wrong in the classroom? And how can we change/maintain this? These provoke thoughts about positive change and are asked and answered by everyone in the circle. The students in the class all openly participate and share their thoughts, creating a new standard within the classroom that the students and the teacher strive to maintain.

These two costs, the additional OPP costs and the downloading, amount to a 3.74% increase that is out of the control of the staff or Council. Through five drafts, we have carefully scrutinized the budget line by line, bearing in mind the priorities of our community, and have managed to maintain services and protect infrastructure, with a below-the-cost-of-living increase of the municipally controlled spending at 1.04%. However, the combined total is an increase of 4.78%, or $67.00 annually on a home valued at $200,000.

The goal of both staff and Council is to find a balance among the competing issues that affect how our town is run and, ultimately, the bottom line of the budget. Maintaining reasonable tax rates, continuing to provide quality levels of service, and protecting our infrastructure investments are the priorities we keep in mind as we work through the budget process. For some municipalities, Carleton Place included, the number one concern affecting our being able to meet those priorities is the Ontario provincial deficit. In order to attempt to balance their books, the provincial government has downloaded services to the municipalities who are deemed capable of being able to handle the extra costs. In other words, well-run municipalities such as Carleton Place, are seemingly penalized as we bear a greater burden of the downloaded costs. The province simply makes a cut and forces our community to deal with it. For the 2013 budget, the Ontario Municipal Partnership Fund download amounts to $166,600 or a 2.14% increase for our community. And this is only the first year of a four year plan with similar downloads expected in the next three years! Add to this, the fact that after ten years of paying on the 2003 costing formula for our OPP services, we are switching to the 2012 formula, with an increase of 1.6% to the tax rate.

As your Mayor, I have always supported holding tax increases to the cost of living. This is one year that, although the town’s portion of increases were held through sharpening our pencils and examining spending in all areas, we are at the mercy of downloads and the new costing formula. Passing the buck from the province to the municipalities means that for Carleton Place citizens the buck stops with them, since the money the province saves in one area and downloads in another is still coming out of the taxpayers’ wallets – this time a little too close to home.

Everyone is invited to join with the band and sing some favourite carols: â&#x20AC;&#x153;White Christmas,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ding Dong Merrily on Highâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;What Child is This?â&#x20AC;? And for a rest from

singing, listen to the band play some wonderful Christmas music, including â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Christmas Songâ&#x20AC;? and an arrangement of â&#x20AC;&#x153;O Little Town of Bethlehem,â&#x20AC;? Mannheim Steamroller version. This presentation is a gift because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s free. There is no charge, but a contribution to the Lanark County Food Bank (either a can or cash) would be welcome. That way, everyone can share in the present. The band is a direct descendant of the Carleton Place Brass

Band formed in the 1860â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. The current version of the band was re-formed in 1994 by Jack Peckett. The band, a group of volunteers (teen and up) is now under the direction of Graham Ingram. The band plays at many community events such as the recent Santa Claus Parade and Remembrance Day service. Zion-Memorial United Church is located at 37 Franklin St. in Carleton Place. For more information, call 613-253-4737.

Fabulous Hair Lines at MVTM EMC Entertainment â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Mississippi Valley Textile Museum (MVTM) opened Hair Lines on Saturday, Nov. 17. This is the next exhibit to grace the Norah Rosamond Hughes Gallery. It pairs a life as drawn by hair and hair set to paper via a magical conjuring of line. For 18 years, artist Karen

Jordon has been collecting her hair and making small sculptures. The results are fascinating. Her autobiographical works are coupled with Norman Takeuchiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conte and graphite drawings of her sculptures. The pairing of their artistry traces the diversity, expressiveness and eloquence of line. The exhibit will also feature

selected pieces of Victorian â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;hair artâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; from Lanark County area museumsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; collections. Hair Lines runs until January 12, 2013. The MVTM is open from Tuesday to Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, contact Michael Rikley-Lancaster at 613-2563754 (ext. 7) or info@mvtm. ca.

Spreading the net at ADHS By TIFFANY LEPACK tlepack@perfprint.ca

EMC Events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Four local high school students are looking to spread their influence across the globe. The Spread The Net (STN) team from Almonte and District High School is comprised of Colleen Stratford-Kurus, Margot Denis, Shelby Featherston and Laura Barrass and they are hoping to make a difference in the lives of African children by purchasing bed nets to help prevent malaria. The team officially registered for the charity founded by Rick Mercer and Belinda Stronach in late September and is now in a competition between other high schools across Canada. The students took the project on themselves and meet once a week on their own time. According to its website, STN is a grassroots campaign designed to motivate, educate and inspire Canadians to help end preventable malaria deaths by raising funds and awareness to support the purchase and distribution of bed nets to children and families

in Africa. Stratford-Kurus is a huge fan of Mercer and would love the opportunity to meet him, the top fundraising school from each category will receive a visit from him and a chance to appear on an episode of The Mercer Report in March 2013. But the most important reason she wanted to get involved was the fact that she thinks it is so simple to save lives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One bed net can protect up to five children for five years and it only costs $10,â&#x20AC;? said Stratford-Kurus in an email to The Canadian Gazette/ EMC. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about the same as working an hour at a minimum wage job, so it is a really doable task. It is important to my group that we make an effort to look beyond Lanark County and delve into helping out developing countries, and STN provided an excellent opportunity for us to do so.â&#x20AC;? Thus far STN has purchased 537,700 nets and counting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The total amounts of nets raised are very impressive but we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop there,â&#x20AC;? said Stratford-Kurus. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyday

1,800 people in Africa die because of Malaria, so we need to continue to do our best to help put a stop to that startling statistic.â&#x20AC;? The team has set a fundraising goal of $6,000 and their first big fundraiser, a coffee house, is set for Dec. 13 at Almonte Old Town Hall, doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are making great progress in (reaching our goal). We have been planning the coffee house for the past few months as our first major fundraiser but we have also been doing odd jobs such as stacking fire wood to raise money,â&#x20AC;? explained Stratford-Kurus. Tickets for the show are only $12 and she notes that $2 of the ticket goes towards the beautification project at the town hall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So one ticket buys a net!â&#x20AC;? said Stratford-Kurus.

Canadians drop two games By TIFFANY LEPACK tlepack@perfprint.ca

EMC Sports – The Carleton Place Canadians had a tough weekend losing both games to Pembroke and Brockville. On Friday, Nov. 30 the Canadians hosted the Pembroke Lumber Kings and fell short losing 3-2. Carleton Place got on the score sheet in the first period with a power play goal by Alex Frere and assisted by Alex Globke and Evan Peterson at 16:59. The only goal of the

second period was scored by Canadians’ Kevin Dufour, assisted by Anthony McVeigh and Garrett Moore at the 13-minute mark. Brendan O’Neil was in net for the Canadians making 28 saves. On Sunday night in Carleton Place it was a high scoring affair as the Braves defeated the Canadians 8-5. Brockville came out of the gate strong scoring four goals in the first period with the Canadians adding three of their own. Goal scorers for the Cana-

dians came from two players: Kelly Summers (three) and Evan Peterson (two). The Canadians are now in second place in the Robinson division of Central Canada Tier 1 Junior A Hockey with a record of 20-12-1. It will be a battle between the first and second place teams as the Canadians host the Smiths Falls Bears (23-9) Friday, Dec. 7 at 7:30 p.m. The Canadians will finish out the weekend at home as they play the Nepean Raiders on Sunday, Dec. 9 at 3 p.m.

Figure skating carnival show Dec. 8 By STACEY ROY sroy@perfprint.ca

EMC Sports – The annual Rideau Lakes Figure Skating Club’s Carnival show has moved up to Dec. 8 this year with the timely theme of a skating tribute to the holiday season. “It will be all about the reindeer, snowmen and snowflakes,” said Becky Kavanagh, club president. The show will begin at 2 p.m. at the Smiths Falls Memorial Community Centre and tickets are available at the door for $5.

The annual show is an opportunity for club skaters to be in the spotlight and demonstrate the skills they have developed over the last year. Often done in February, the club has decided to host the carnival show this month to allow the club executive to prepare to host the regional competition in the new year. This Feb. 29 skate clubs from eastern Ontario will be represented by approximately 300-400 skaters who will compete for the top spot in each category. More details on this com-

petition will be available closer to the event. During the carnival show Dec. 8 every student from the toddlers to the competitive dancers will be on the ice celebrating the season with their own unique holiday numbers. “It will be a very family friendly event afterwards,” Kavanagh said. Christmas music and hot chocolate will round out this holiday tradition at the club, so family and friends of club members are reminded to bring their skates to the show!

This year’s donations totaling $27,150.00 are itemized below along with the totals for the past 11 years. After eleven years the current Carleton Place Boat Dragon Boat Festival will not be continuing in 2013.

Also, thanks to our Associate Sponsors, IDA Carleton Place Drugmart, Rental Village, Argue Construction, and Jeff Wilson of Coldwell Bankers.

EMC Sports – Perianne Jones matched her career-best individual World Cup result with a strong 12th place finish in a classic-ski sprint race (7.5 kilometres) in Kuusamo, Finland on Nov. 30. Racing in near darkness, the 27-year-old Almonte native, who also qualified 12th for the head-to-head heats with the top 30, advanced into the semifinals after a brilliant quarterfinal where she matched strides with Poland’s high-powered Justyna Kowalczyk to the finish line, and finished second. “Kuusamo has been a dark place for me in the past,” said Jones. “I’ve never really been good here so I’m really happy with today. I got in behind Kowalczyk on the last big climb because I figured she’d win the heat, and I just double-poled like mad to the finish.” It was a family affair of sorts for Jones. Recently married this summer to Canadian wax technician, Joel Jaques, she took advantage of bombing fast skis to lead her to a solid finish. “My skis were awesome today and I was so fast on the downhills,” said Jones. “I slipped on some ice a bit on the corner of the first climb in the semifinal and lost connection with the group, but I still need to be happy.” Starting to feel more comfortable with life on the World Cup, Jones has finished 12th two times previous in sprint races during her nine-year career on Canada’s elite squad. The 2010 Olympian also teamed up with Chandra Crawford last year to win the bronze medal at a World Cup in Milan, Italy. Jones credits

Almonte Thunder adds offensive punch to lineup By TIFFANY LEPACK tlepack@perfprint.ca

Hawkins hasn’t ruled out another trade before the Jan. 10 deadline and he also has one more spot open to sign an additional player. It’s a pivotal weekend for Almonte, which sits in last position in the Valley Division standings of the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League with a record of 7-12-1 for 15 points. The Thunder was off this last weekend but play three games this weekend. On Dec. 7, the Thunder travel to Renfrew for an 8 p.m. puck drop, on Saturday, Dec. 8 they host Arnprior at 7:30 p.m. and they finish the weekend off in Clarence on Sunday afternoon at 2:25 p.m.

R0011794489_1206

EMC Sports - The Almonte Thunder has picked up some scoring power. The Thunder made a trade on Dec. 1 giving up a 2013-2014 16-year-old spot to the Renfrew Timberwolves for forward Patrick Dick. Jeff Hawkins, Thunder general manager, explained that he had three 16-year-old spots from a previous trade and wanted to get rid of one. “I moved one to Renfrew and I hope that Patrick can keep playing the way he is and put some pucks in the net for us,” said Hawkins. He described Dick as a solid offensive player who

knows how to get the puck into the net. “I think we are lowest in league for goals scored. We are hoping he will help us get going in the offensive end,” said Hawkins. “We certainly need to find some goal scoring and we are hoping he will push us in that direction.” So far this year, Dick has played 23 games with the Timberwolves, he has 11 goals and 10 assists for 21 points and 16 penalty minutes. Dick had his first practice with the team on Tuesday night and Hawkins assumes he will play on the second line and have some power play time.

Beatrice Wright 100 Years Beatrice has experienced a lot in her one hundred years. To help celebrate the special occasion (November 11) she enjoyed a party with her family at her daughters. Bea was born Diana Beatrice Truelove outside of Perth, Ontario (Tennyson Road). She is the youngest of three children born to Diana Innis and William Truelove. She and her brother Arthur and sister Isobel grew up on a farm attending a one room school house. She stayed in Perth during the week with her Aunt Bella when she was in high school. She worked as a domestic helper before her marriage in 1940 to Clarence Kenneth Learmonth (Ken). They welcomed their daughter Marjorie the following year and moved into their home at 41 Lombard Street when she was a year old. Norma was born a few years later completing the family. She lost her husband in a tragic train derailment while at work in 1953. Needless to say life changed drastically for her. She went out in the work force a few years afterwards working first at Gemmell’s Flowers and then on to Rideau Regional until her retirement. Bea loved her home and enjoyed gardening (the farmer came out). She spent many hours in her flower and vegetable gardens. Bea was known for her euchre skills and always enjoyed a game. Many euchre parties were attended, along with home parties with friends and family. Bea is blessed with five grandchildren and five great grandchildren and is very involved in their lives. To this day they are all very close. A lot of time was spent at Beverly Lake in the summers when her grandchildren were growing up. Bea met and married Edward Wright and moved to his home on Elm Street in 1975. He was a much loved addition to her family. They enjoyed their home, many trips, gardening, cards and family. Most of all they enjoyed each others company no matter what they were doing. Unfortunately it was to end ten years later when Ed passed away. For the most part she enjoyed good health. She was hospitalized in the late fifties with Hepatitis A. Years later she became jaundiced and underwent an exploratory operation to find the cause. Her liver had been badly damaged and was almost non functioning. With her faith and determination she recovered months later. There was a slight heart attack and an esophogus problem which she was also hospitalized for over the years. Again her faith saw her through. Bea has been a member of Trinity United Church for seventy two years. She attended Sunday service regularly until she experienced a loss of hearing and wasn’t able to follow. Norma: My Mother was always there for me above and beyond. A devoted Mother, a friend to many. She is the most satisfied person I have ever known. It is safe to say she enriched many lives over her 100 years. Thanks Mom. We all love you dearly.

Perfect for Christmas gifts. Something for everyone!

ELLIOTT, William - In loving memory of our dear Father, Grandfather and Great-Grandfather who died December 11, 2011. Goodbye Dad, we had to say, A year ago on that cold winters day. We’ll remember the good times, And try not to be sad, But saying goodbye still hurts so bad. We miss you more than we can express, Our love for you will never grow less. We keep trying to imagine how we will go on, We realize tomorrow is another dawn. We know you’re in heaven above, Looking down on us with all your love. Only to whisper in our ear, Remember that I’ll never stop loving you. With love from Penny (Art), Matthew (Jennifer), your Grandchildren and Great-Grandchildren xoxo

DUFFY - In memory of a very special wife, Hazel Duffy, who passed away November 29, 1997. If tears could build a stairway, And memories a lane, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d walk right up to Heaven And bring you home again. It is lonely here without you, I miss you more each day, For life is not the same for me, Since you were called away. It broke my heart to lose you, But you did not go alone, For part of me went with you, The day God called you Home. I seem to see in the soft dim light, A face I loved the best, And think of her when the suns last rays, Goes down in the far off west. Lovingly remembered Murray

EMC - Your Community Newspaper

How would you wrap a goat for the holidays? EMC news - It’s that time of year again when we struggle to find unique holiday gift ideas for everyone on our shopping lists. Giving a charitable gift through Plan Canada’s Gifts of Hope is a great way to give back during the holidays and help a family or community in need. Gifts of Hope support real projects that change lives in developing countries. Whether it is clean water for a family, a mango tree for a classroom to teach children gardening skills, or a goat that will provide milk, nourishment, and a source of income for a family, these gifts are perfect for anyone on your list: teachers, coworkers, friends and family, and even party hosts. The Plan Canada Gifts of Hope catalogue offers an assortment of more than 40 items for all budgets and includes choices for all faiths and cultures during the holiday season. They are also a great way to engage young

children and friends in global issues and challenges, while also giving them an opportunity to make a difference. But, how do you wrap a goat or a mango tree? When you purchase Plan Canada Gifts of Hope, you can also select a personalized gift card for the person you are honouring that includes a photo and description of the gift. Here are some additional ways to “wrap a goat” and add some fun to this gift-giving idea: * Goat ($75) What you’re really giving: A goat provides milk for a family: protein, nourishment and health. Just imagine what a herd could do for a community. This gift provides the possibility of a livelihood, an income and the ability to make choices about the future. How to wrap it: Pair the gift card with luxurious goat’s milk soap and cream, or for the foodie on your list, a goat’s cheese, a cheese board and cheese knives. Alternatively,

the * Herd of goats ($775) Gifts of Hope makes a fantastic group or office gift. * Newborn check-up ($12) What you’re really giving: This gift supports the important work of community health workers who visit moms and their newborn babies within the first three days of the baby’s birth - a critical time. The visit helps to ensure the baby is thriving and growing, and the mother is healthy and recovering well from delivery. In communities where health care centres are difficult to access and newborn mortality rates are far too high, this gift saves lives. How to wrap it: A great gift for new parents – the gift card can be paired with a baby bottle, receiving blanket, onesie or a bib. You could also present the Gifts of Hope Birth certificate ($25) the same way. * Mango tree ($15) What you’re really giving: When mango trees are planted as a key element in

school garden programs, children learn useful gardening and agricultural skills while caring for them. Their juicy and nutritious fruit is shared among the students as an incentive to come to school. Picture lush mango trees growing in schoolyards and allowing children to focus on their studies instead of their hunger. How to wrap it: Pair the gift card with a mason jar filled with tasty dried mangoes and top with festive holiday fabric. You could also give a jar of mango jam or chutney. * Classroom essentials for one child ($17) What you’re really giving: It may be called a classroom, but without the essentials that make learning possible, it is just a room. Help stock it with chalkboards, maps, desks, chairs, textbooks, pencils and paper. How to wrap it: Tuck the gift card into a journal with pens and pencils or with a great new book. You could

also use this gift-giving idea for the Gifts of Hope library in a box gift ($60) or classroom essentials for a whole class ($250), which is a great group gift. * Beekeeping kit ($55) What you’re really giving: This is the gift of an instant livelihood. With the training and tools that this gift provides, beekeeping can quickly be turned into a flourishing family business that generates income and the ability to pay for such things as food, housing and health care. How to wrap it: Give this gift with a jar of honey, beeswax candles or beeswax beauty products. * Clean water for a family ($75) What you’re really giving: For parents, this gift brings peace of mind that their family will have clean water to drink that won’t make anyone sick. For daughters, it means a day at school instead of an arduous journey to fetch water for their families. For all

children, it means quenching their thirst. How to wrap it: Give this gift with a reusable water bottle that can be used all year round. Alternatively, have the whole family pitch in and consider giving either a Well for a class ($175), or Rainwater harvesting tanks ($500) as a group gift.
