This was the third Family Day event for South Frontenac Rec and was organized this year by Dan Bell and Pam Morey. Despite all the activities at Frontenac Arena for Family Day, a big pile of snow was still a major attraction.

EMC News – A pilot project for community paramedics on Wolfe Island that could have ramifications for the rest of Frontenac County came under scrutiny at County Council’s regular meeting in Glenburnie last week. Paul Charbonneau, director of emergency and transportation services/ chief of paramedic services, asked in his report for a reaffirmation of the $1,500 project which would be totally funded by the County of Frontenac. The idea is to have a paramedic available a0t a clinic six times a year

where seniors could come in and have a consultation about their health and be referred to the proper agencies if necessary. But the idea didn’t sit well with everybody around the County Council table. “Clients require contact that is consistent and this just doesn’t seem right to me,” said Coun. John McDougall. “Even though it’s a relatively small amount, I can’t support it.” The big concern for some councillors was a duplication of services. “Having just gone through cancer with my mother, I think we’re duplicating a service that’s already there,” said Coun.

Gary Davison. But others were adamant on the value of the plan. “If we don’t approve the $1,500 and kill the community paramedic program, I believe it will be the biggest travesty we’ve ever had in Frontenac County,” said Dep. Warden Bud Clayton. “I’d like to see it in North Frontenac,” said Coun. John Inglis. “In fact, I’ve been approached by residents on it. “I’m very much in favour of this.” “I think we’ll be the second county looking at this type of project,” said Coun. Denis Doyle. For his part, Charbon-

neau said he has fielded concerns from various health care organizations, and has reassured them that he’s not trying to take over their territory. “It might help to state what a community paramedic is . . . and is not,” Charbonneau said. “We’re not trying to replace what these organizations are doing. “The fact is that many people fall through the cracks and when they get to the point of desperation they call 911. “We’re trying to cut down on the number of those kind of 911 calls.” He said the community paramedic program is primarily a referral by EMS.

“Perhaps the proper agency isn’t aware of a particular patient out there,” he said. “We can be a conduit for that patient. “The other paramedic chiefs also see a need for this service but we can’t get funding for it.” Charbonneau said they’re doing it on Wolfe Island “to see if this is something we want to do in the rest of the County.” He acknowledged councillors’ concerns that it could get expensive if expanded but countered that costs could be greater if they didn’t have some model of service because of the increased number of 911 calls.

The end of an era for WIBTA, Wolfe Island’s Business & Tourism Association By Margaret Knott Correspondent

EMC News- With barely a whimper the Wolfe Island Business & Tourism Association’s many years of operation came to an end at what was the last AGM of the organization. Chairing the meeting was WIBTA president Kathy Rothermel who had assumed the role for a one year period. WIBTA was formally established November 18, 1987 with the passage of a resolution which read simply “that the Wolfe Island Business & Tourism Association be formed.” WI “s Hank (Hendry) Connell who was instrumental in its original establishment was in attendance for its dissolution. The current board of directors will remain in place until the end of May 2013 when it is anticipated all details of the dissolution will be concluded. Following an overview of the year’s activities by VP Curtis Ireland, the presentation of 1812 dinner video and financial statements by Treasurer Linda Van Hal, the distribution of assets began. By May’s

end and a final audit , remaining funds and equipment (tents, etc.) are to be turned over to the township’s WI ward. (wolfeisland.com will continue.) The township takes over the Information Centre (Washrooms) and at Victoria Street. The Wi Historical Society will assume much responsibility for brochures, bicycle maps etc. with availability at the “Old House Museum as well as the plaque project in Marysville. They will also hold book masters, interviews etc The future of the bicycle rental business has yet to be clarified by the present operator. The WI Community Medical Clinic president Liz Crothers and the board will take over the annual WI Classic Road Race (July 7, 2013). ( Hank Connell, was the original Race Director (1981-?) Councillor Springgay looked for clarification on ownership of Victoria Street facilities and other issues. Mayor Denis Doyle thanked WIBTA for their efforts on behalf of the community for so many years and past president Linda Thomas for her long service.

Frontenac Islands Budget Meetings Continue WI Historical Society members Denis Cherquitte and Judy Greenwood Speers described a project the association is undertaking at the WI’s ld House Museum. and made a request for $10,000 from the township to make repairs to the house. Speers made a major purchase of wood siding at considerable savings to put over the existing exterior of the building. and the job needs doing. Springgay sees much value to assisting in the project. “We own the building she said. “We have not offered support in the past (insurance only), They have the required bids and selected one.They are prepared to fund raise,” she said. Cherquitte noted possible safety issues ( (bees in the walls ).’ Labour has to be done now to be ready for May 2 seasonal opening. ,” he said . “The House beautifully located is gaining in popularity, “..according to Speers “We hope to have memorabilia, material available for self initiated walking tours, as well as other community brochues, books etc. etc.

and take over other tourism material. It will All tie in very nicely with a renovated Island Grill.” Councillor Norris reminded council that at time of purchase of the building and land that it was determined there would be nor more money spent on it by the township. “Howe Island with its Historical Society will be affected by this,” he said. Councillor Springgay on the other hand said, ”I can’t imagine buying a building and walking away from it. The Medical Clinic has received money and it is supposed to be self sufficient.” Deputy Mayor Jones encouraged the WI Historical Society approach the County’s Anne Marie Young (Sustainability) for assistance ((Community Sustainability Initiatives) “Much of which is presently directed to central Frontenac. Sharbot Lake is a big winner.” He also suggested they look to the Community Improvement Plan project. “Even though you don’t get money I think it is appropriate that you ask because I get this perception at the county that you guys never ask, you don’t

have needs. Put something together and get it before them,” he said. ” We need a share of that money that is in reserves at the county…” (NB- April 16th is the date set for the next Community Improvement Plan meeting (CIP) on Wolfe Island.) Roads Superintendant Leo Greenwood was on hand to discus further budget allocations to roads which is a never ending situation it seems with so many of them. He commented that during a recent storm one truck made a round trip of all Wolfe Island ( township) roads which added up to 400 km’s, a round trip to Ottawa. FYIMayor Denis Doyle has announced that with the retirement of CAO Terry O’Shea, the township has been able to enlist the services of former South Frontenac CAO Clerk Administrator Gord Burns (retired ) in the interim, until a permanent CAO is selected. Mr. Burns is already on the job. Around town: *The Scotties Tournament of Hearts was a special event for Daniel White (13) and family (James & Heather).

Daniel, a grade 8 student at Sacred Heart school is a curler at the Kingston Curling Club. He entered an essay contest. The topic , about curling. He won.

Frontenac County to transfer all Federal Gas Tax Funds to townships By Craig Bakay Reporter

Welcome to the club

EMC News – South Frontenac Mayor Gary Davison and Councillor Mark Tinlin, wearing their own Queen’s 60th Jubilee Medals, present one to John Trousdale at Council last week. “There are a lot of volunteers out there — at the Grace Centre, working with shut-ins — who are not getting recognition,” Trousdale said. “I accept this on behalf of them.”.

EMC News – The four member townships of Frontenac County will receive all of the Federal Gas Tax funding the County gets every year, County Council decided at its regular meeting last week in Glenburnie. Last year, the County allocated $625,000 of the $817,000 it received in Federal Gas Tax funding to the townships. The move came in the form of a motion from Coun. David Jones and Dep. Warden Bud Clayton, which read in part: “whereas Council is concerned with the unfettered spending within the ICSP (Integrated Community Sustainability Plan) of those Federal Gas Tax funds on spurious projects such as, but not limited to, ‘sustainability.’ “And whereas Council is concerned with the amassed surplus of retained Federal Gas Tax funds without appropriate capital plans nor investment strategy, be it resolved that commencing 2013, 100 per cent of Federal Gas Tax funds be directly apportioned

to member Councils.” The motion also proposed that the $1.58 million accumulated in reserve funds be transferred to the townships. Three councillors spoke out against the motion. “I’m not in favour of this motion,” said Coun. John Inglis. “My understanding is that the funds are for more than just roads and bridges. “I understand there’s a problem with accumulation but I think a lot of the ICSP projects are worthwhile.” “I’d also like to speak against this. I believe it would be irresponsible,” said Coun. John McDougall. “I will not support this,” said Coun. John Purdon. “The County receives $817,000 and 75 per cent of that goes to the townships.” “Perhaps it’s a bit aggressive to talk about reserves, but if taken as a budget item it’s much more transparent,” said Coun. Denis Doyle. “Should Council wish to have funds completely dispersed, it is their choice to do that,” said Treasurer Marion VanBruinessen. “(But) the County has to document all the funds we do use.”

Coun. Gary Davison suggested if it would make it more palatable if the clause concerning the reserve funds could be removed. “I never envisioned it (the reserve fund) becoming this large,” said Coun. Gary Davison. “We don’t need 22 projects on the books, we only need about five and the reserve funds would fund that.” Warden Janet Gutowski suggested that would constitute a “substantive change” in the motion that couldn’t be covered by a friendly amendment, but other councillors rejected her argument. “You’re only deleting one bullet,” said Doyle. “It sounds pretty friendly to me,” said Jones. “Although my observation is that there is a treasure chest of $1.5 million sitting there without a plan. “Wolfe Island needs some roads fixed and they don’t need landfill modeling or population studies. “My intent was to stop the continuous squirreling away of funds. It’s got to stop.” The amended motion passed 6-3, with Gutowski, Inglis and Purdon voting against.

Speed limit on No matter Opinicon Road what happens, reduced to 60 kph we’ll make it unhappen. By Craig Bakay Reporter

EMC News – Following reconstruction, South Frontenac Township has decided to reduce the speed limit on Opinicon Road to 60 kph, Council decided at its regular meeting last week in Sydenham. “As part of establishing a precedent, with the recent reconstruction of Opinicon Road, staff took the opportunity to review the speed limit rating for the entire length of the road,” Public Works Manager Mark Segsworth said. Opinicon Road is 16.2 kilometres in length with many horizontal and vertical curves, Segsworth said. The current speed limit is 80 kph by default with the lack of formal regulatory speed limit signs. “This roadway was reviewed incorporating the Council-endorsed TAC Automated Speed Limit Guidelines analysis tool,” he said. “The result of this analysis was the recommendation for a speed limit reduction to 60 kph for the entire length of the road.” “I’m smiling because I’m thinking maybe we should not fix up the roads

operating budget to purchase the required regulatory signs. ••• South Frontenac will be having a second look at its policy of awarding cemetery tenders for grave excavation and maintenance, as well as sales and administration. In a report to Council, CAO Wayne Orr said the new policy, established last November, resulted in three bids for sales and administration, one for data entry services only and two from contractors with no stated cemetery experience. “Recognizing the limited number of bids and the lack of the desired experience, it is the recommendation of the Corporate Services Committee that all bidders be advised that the Township is rejecting all submissions as provided for in the tender provisions,” Orr said. “Furthermore it is also recommended that Council authorize staff to pursue individual contract negotiations with known providers of the service as provided for under the sole source provisions of the Township Procurement Policy.”

and just reduce speed on them,” joked Mayor Gary Davison. “I’m going to buy a bicycle if this keeps up.” “It is our gateway to the Rideau and becoming a cyclist route,” said Segsworth. “It has been fixed up. I drove it and you’re (still) hard-pressed to go 80 on it,” said Coun. Ron Vandewal. Coun. John McDougall wanted to know if the approach could still be used to analyze speed limits on other roads that aren’t slated for reconstruction. “I support this motion but I’m wondering about Hinchinbrooke Road,” McDougall said. “How much does it cost to do an analysis?” “The costs are mostly our time,” said Segsworth. “It’s mostly just setting up counters. “A lot of our roads weren’t built to current standards; they follow the typography, so our approach is to review speed limits as roads get upgraded.” Segsworth said the OPP has been notified of the reduction and “have no issues with it.” He said there are sufficient funds in the 2013

Community project funding questioned at County Council By Craig Bakay Reporter

EMC News – Frontenac County Council approved support for several smaller scale community sustainability projects at its regular meeting last week in Glenburnie, but several councillors used the opportunity to continue taking aim at Warden Janet Gutowski. “Seven of the eight projects are in Central Frontenac (Gutowski is also mayor of Central),” said Coun. Denis Doyle, mayor of Frontenac Islands. “I don’t believe this should be at this table. “If Central Frontenac wants these projects, they should fund them.” But Manager of Economic Sustainability Anne Marie Young defended the choice of projects. “I have no control over who applies,” she said. “All of these projects are straight out of our sustainability plan. “There is one from North Frontenac, one from South Frontenac and there were five events that were not approved. “A number of years ago, this process was designed to be as simple as possible and to keep politics out of it.”

But other councillors weren’t convinced. “I think it’s somewhat premature to consider this now; it’s a budget item,” said Coun. Gary Davison, mayor of South Frontenac. “And it seems somewhat targeted. “I don’t think it’s equitable for the entire region.” For her part, Gutowski wasn’t taking the accusations lying down. “First of all, this was approved in 2012,” she said. “We just have a lot of active community groups.” “It just happens that the warden comes from the area (with the most approved projects),” said Doyle. “The warden is very active in the community, that’s true,” Gutowski shot back. “All municipalities are eligible,” said Treasurer Marion VanBruinessen. “I think it’s a budget discussion,” said Coun. John Inglis. “If there’s a problem with geographic distribution, I think that’s a marketing issue.” Coun. John McDougall agreed with Inglis. “I spent five years with the Trillium Foundation and there was a problem with people not being aware Trillium grants were avail-

able,” McDougall said. “(But) I also notice there is a second grant for the Sharbot Lake Farmers’ Market. “Perhaps this was not vetted as well as it might have been.” Young said the total approved County contribution for 2012 is $49,707 from a budget of $50,000. She said the total project value to the community is about $136,000. The projects that were approved included: • Senior Community Room at the Sharbot Lake Retirement Centre • The Buck Lake Association’s lake plan • Awareness and Education for Local Food Project, Sharbot Lake Farmers’ Market • Canonto Lake Property Owners Association Lake Management Plan • Sharbot Lake Land Owners Association Lake Management Plan • Friends of Arden Revitalization Plan • Steps toward a stewardship plan for Frontenac County • Sharbot Lake Farmers’ Market Venue Revitalization plan (washroom facility refurbishing)

Champion Fury EMC Sports - The Frontenac Fury Bantam girls were tournament champions in Ottawa last weekend. In games against Kanata, Burlington, Cornwall and Ottawa, the girls were perfect in five games, winning 1-0, 7-0 and 4-3. They won 3-2 in a thrilling overtime semifinal game to get to the A championship game, where they won 4-1 against a tough Kingston opponent. Reliable goaltending, strong defence and timely scoring were again the keys to a Fury win. The win caps a successful tournament run: the girls won two out of the three tournaments they entered this year, and finished second in the other. They represented the community and the Fury organization very well, with very few penalties and many compliments about their hard but fair play from opposing coaches and officials alike. They made their coaches proud, again.

County Council did the right thing with Gas Tax cash Craig Comment By Craig Bakay editorial@theheritageemc.ca

EMC Editorial — All the Council meetings this week were cancelled, which under most circumstances would be cause for suspicion, but in this case it’s OK because the reason for the cancellation is that a lot of councillors are going to the Good Roads Conference in Toronto. The vast majority of conferences councillors can go to are crap, mostly an excuse for overpaid consultants to yap on about a load of statistics and pie charts that have al-

ready been discredited many times before. But the Good Roads folks have managed to build themselves a reputation for presenting information that actually matters to municipalities — all sorts of stuff about roads and bridges. Good Roads has also historically been the place where municipal types get together to hatch schemes that will pressure higher levels of government to throw a few monetary bones to the lower tiers for fixing potholes and such. So, we’re fine with sending councillors to this one. In rural municipalities, roads are by far and away the biggest budget bite and, when it comes down to it, the biggest single reason municipalities exist in the first place. Yes, we need waste disposal and policing and fire departments and recreation programs and building inspection, any one

of which can prompt a spate of nasty calls to councillors, but ask anyone who’s ever served as municipal councillor what they get the most calls on and which calls come most regularly and they’ll tell you it’s roads. That’s why it’s probably a good thing that Frontenac County Council finally decided at its last meeting to give all the Federal Gas Tax coming in each year to the Townships. Frontenac County, you see, doesn’t have any roads that it’s responsible to maintain. Of course, there are those who will try making the case that the Gas Tax funds are “for more than roads and bridges,� but that’s not the way the Federal Government sold the tax when it instituted it years ago. The tax was intended to be a bit of a user fee from drivers, in order to keep the roads

up. Yes, there were some other uses approved, and of course the feds retain some administration fees from it, but that’s not the argument they sold to the public. In the first year of the program, very little filtered down to the Townships. In fact, the County has managed to put away a nice little $1.58 million nest egg (they like to call it ‘reserves’) out of Gas Tax funds. But, over the years, the amount the County moves to the Townships has been growing steadily, and finally, in 2013, the townships will get all of the $817,000. Last year, the townships got $625,000. Perhaps there is more to the Gas Tax than roads and bridges. There are plows, and potholes, and shoulders and drainage ditches, and guardrails and yellow lines and signs and, well, you get the idea.

In Our Opinion

Improving the rights of aircraft passengers EMC Editorial – A food voucher seems like sorry compensation for hours spent trapped on the tarmac, but according to current legislation that’s exactly what aircraft passengers are entitled to for their troubles. Under the current legislation, if a flight delay exceeds four hours, airlines must offer a meal voucher to their passengers. For delays exceeding eight hours and that involve an overnight stay, airlines are required to pay for hotel accommodations and airport transfers. Legislation also states that passengers already on board an aircraft when a delay occurs should be offered drinks and snacks, and that if the delay exceeds 90 minutes, and circumstances permit, they should be offered the option of disembarking the aircraft. Recently, a bill that aims to better protect the rights of flight passengers underwent a reading in the House of Commons. Bill C-459 (An Act respecting the rights of air passengers) has been put forth by NDP MP for Laval JosÊ Nunez-Melo. If adopted, this bill would see, among other things, passengers offered meals and refreshments, means of communication if a flight is expected to be delayed two or more hours; compensation in the amount of $100 for each hour that they are without fresh air, heat and lights; waste removal service; adequate food and refreshments; if possible, the opportunity to disembark from the aircraft; as well as full reimbursement of the ticket cost for delays in departure of five hours or more. In cases where an airline is of the opinion that an airport authority, the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority, NAV CANADA or the Canada Border Services Agency, is responsible for the delay, Bill C-459 allows the opportunity for the airline to submit its case to the Canadian Transportation Agency, who will determine whether or not the air carrier is entitled to a refund for the amounts paid out. We at the EMC are in favour of new legislation that would better serve and respect the rights of aircraft passengers, and believe that airlines should be held accountable for those instances where they are at fault for delays. We feel as though Bill C-459 adequately respects and protects both airline and passenger.

Girl Guides of Canada hosts campfire for Kingston region By Kelly Reid

EMC Correspondent

EMC News - On Feb. 21, on the eve of World Thinking Day, over 100 Girl Guides of all ages gathered together at the Cataraqui Centre to celebrate the Guide organization and its partner associations around the world. Traditional songs and chants, as well as Girl Guide promises, were all performed together by more than 15 troupes from around Kingston and area. Both Guides and the non-Guides watching knew old favourites such as “And the Green Grass Grows all Around” and “If You’re Happy and You Know It.” Others were Guide rituals known only by the initiated, such as “Our Chalet.” World Thinking Day, which has been annually celebrated on Feb. 22 since 1926, is a day for young Girl Guides to come together as a group and enact positive social change. This year, the theme of the event was “Every mother’s life and health is precious,” according to community guide leader Alison Ginn. Ginn opened the ceremonial campfire by welcoming all of the Guides, proudly saying, “We have all levels represented here.” Sparks,

which begin at age five, all the way through Rangers, those over the age of seventeen, were all at Thursday’s meeting. There were even several generations of Guides, as some young ladies had former Guide mothers attending as well. In the spirit of this year’s theme, each troupe collected canned goods to donate to the Partners in Mission Food Bank in Kingston. “I’d like to thank everyone for their generous donation on this special day,” a representative from the food bank said. The girls collected a great many items, which will go towards feeding families in their own community. “You really do learn a lot,” says former Guide Megan McKever of how the organization can instill important values in young girls. “It provides leadership skills, friendship…I did all the levels.” Being a Guide had such a positive effect on Megan that she now works as a publicity representative for Girl Guides of Canada, encouraging more young women to get involved. This summer, for example, Girl Guides of Canada will be running day camps

for Guides and non-Guides alike. The program sells out every year, says community guider Ginn. It’s a wonderful way for non-Guides to get a sense of what Girl Guides is all about, while making friends and learning skills

in the process. This year, the Kingston region will be holding the program at Camp Carruthers Point on Lake Ontario. Activities will include archery, crafts, hiking, swimming, games, and much more. In true summer camp style, there

will also be sleep-away nights offered as well. This year, the Girl Guides camp will also include a special leadership activity series that will teach young girls personal growth skills. Financial assistance for the camps is also offered

for those that qualify. Registration for the Girl Guides of Canada summer camp is now open. For more information or to inquire about registering, email summercamps@girlguidesontario.org.

EMC contributor Spring colours help to awarded Queen’s take the chill off of winter Diamond Jubilee By Mary Cook

EMC Lifestyle - Although Father kept telling Mother there was a lot of winter left, Mother refused to believe him. She was sure she saw a robin. Father said it was a blackbird. I was never sure if Mother hated the winter because we were locked in for weeks, only venturing as far as church and Briscoe’s General Store, with trips into Renfrew – only if it was necessary – or because she remembered milder weather this time of year in her beloved New York City. But by the time February started to wane, Mother’s patience with the snow, the bitterly cold nights huddled together in the drafty kitchen to keep warm, and the frostcovered windows all took their toll on Mother’s usually happy mood. Even though the days were getting longer, the evenings stretched out before her, and I could tell she ached for spring and warm nights, when she could open the windows and feel the cool country air coming in. One Friday evening she announced that even if the snow came down in buckets, she was going into Renfrew in the morning. And yes, I could go with her. The old Model T had long since been up on blocks in the drive shed, and so Queenie would be hitched to the cutter for the 12½ mile trip into town.

tons. The sales clerk pulled the first pile down off the shelf, and Mother asked if she wouldn’t mind bringing down the pile next to it. I knew exactly what she was looking for. This pile had several bolts of Dan River plaids in glorious mauve and pink colours... the colours of spring. Mother lifted one bolt off the pile and put it to her nose. She inhaled as if she were smelling a bouquet of roses. “It’s 19 cents a yard this week,� the sales clerk said, and I knew she was wondering if Mother could spare such a

Before it was bedtime, we could hear the wind picking up outside and, as it always did when that happened, the back door shuddered with the storm’s onset.

but the fur rug, wrapped tight to our chins, kept us warm. Mother was in much better spirits than she had been all week, for which I was grateful. We headed right for Walker’s Store after Mother got rid of the chickens, butter and eggs, and her little change purse bulged with coins from her sales. She seemed to know exactly what she was looking for and we headed to the back of the store, pausing for a few seconds on the big iron grate in the middle of the store where heat from the coal furnace puffed up warm air. Here was where the bolts of materials were stored, on long shelves, like books in a library. Mother said she was there to look at the Dan River Cot-

portly sum. She could indeed. Hadn’t we just sold a cutter full of chickens, butter and eggs? We left the store with four pieces of Dan River Cotton, all in the palest of colours, and even though they had been put into a Walker’s Store paper bag, I could smell the sweetness of the new material as I carried the parcel back to the cutter. After a stop at the drug store, we headed back to the farm, and I sat huddled under the fur rug with the parcel of material clutched tight to my chest. After supper, with all of us sitting around the big pine table, with the exception of Father who was in his usual spot in front of the Findlay Oval, Mother took out the pieces of Dan River Cotton and spread them out before her. They

would become house dresses, and blouses for Audrey and me, and fill many an hour for Mother working her magic on the old treadle Singer sewing machine. Before it was bedtime, we could hear the wind picking up outside and, as it always did when that happened, the back door shuddered with the storm’s onset. Father put another log, as long as a broom handle, into the stove, and Audrey without being asked, rolled up two small braided rugs and put them at the bottoms of the doors leading outside and into the summer kitchen. The kitchen was as warm as we could make it. So Father was right. The back of winter had not been broken; there was more to come. As the storm raged outside, Mother let out a deep sigh, and rubbed her hands over the new pieces of Dan River Cotton.

Medal

EMC News - At the recent Frontenac Islands Council meeting, held Feb. 11 on Howe Island, Mayor Denis Doyle added an item to the agenda. He asked Margaret Knott, who was there covering the meeting, to rise, and, to her absolute surprise, awarded her the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal. Mayor Doyle in doing this said, “Tonight we are honouring a member of our community by presenting the Jubilee Medal. The medal marks the 60th anniversary of her Majesty’s accession to the throne as Queen of Canada. To celebrate this event a number of Canadians are being honoured for their significant contribution to their community and its citizens. It is my pleasure to announce that Margaret

Knott has been selected to receive this award.� He went on to comment on her work in Alberta, Quebec, Manitoba and Ontario, where she has always been a tireless volunteer. He noted “that while living on Wolfe Island, she has covered every council meeting, festival, lecture, parade, school project, church suppers and much more�, as well as events on Howe Island since amalgamation. “Her column is informative, insightful, interpretive, and enjoyed by all residents of Kingston and the islands. She has documented the events and history of the islands now for over 20 years. As if this is not enough, on a weekly basis she updates the Wolfe Island website with links to the reports in the EMC.�

Mary Cook’s Memories

Mother’s peddling eggs, butter and chickens waned during the winter, but that day, under piles of blankets, she was prepared to visit her warm-weather customers so that she could have what was called back then, “egg money.� There were things she needed. She had written out a list, and we dressed like mummies, with hot bricks at our feet. We set out, just Mother and me, for the long cold trip into Renfrew. Queenie’s breath seemed to freeze in the air, and the cutter cut deep into the snow along the Northcote Side Road,

EMC Lifestyle –Natalie George had an idea. It grew. And grew. Just like her kids. Her idea become Go Green Baby, a shop for ecologicallyfriendly children’s supplies. The shop opened in 2008. “I don’t know how to explain it,� she said. “It was literally in the middle of the night. When it wakes you up, it’s meant to be.� George is a teacher. She said she entered a teaching career because she loves learning and being able to share that with others. She’s no longer in a classroom, but she’s still bringing learning experiences to others. She was on maternity leave when the inspiration for Go Green Baby arrived. She and her husband, Jamin, wanted to do the best they could for their baby, Kohen, born in 2007. “He was the baby behind Go Green Baby,� said George. “My husband is in the military. We moved to Kingston from Edmonton and tried to find cloth diapers. There

George said she likes connecting with other moms and families. “Young families need a lot of support, someone to talk with,� she said. “The products here are a bit alternative.

George is wisely skeptical of plastics. Her lunch carriers are stainless steel containers called Lunch Bots. There are eco-friendly and family-safe washes for baby and home, natural sunscreen (SPF 30 – UVA/UVB), and a gentle laundry wash called “Nellie’s All-Natural Laundry Soda.� It seems George has thought of just about ev-

I’ve never seen such a variety of healthy and environmentallyfriendly baby stuff. “The person who cares most about your baby or child is you,� said George. “If you don’t start caring about the products, ingredients and materials that are coming into your home and in contact with your family, who is going to? Governments and governing bodies have little or no regulations for products, materials and ingredients that are being sold. It is so important as parents and consumers that we become informed about what we are putting into and on our bodies and in our environment, whether that be our home environment or outdoor environment. If we want to keep our babies and children safe, we need to start looking at the whole picture. Safety is not just about car seats, baby gates and buckles, it is about everything your child comes in contact with.� You can find things like baby carriers, slings and wraps in Go Green Baby.

wasn’t anything here. After the middle-of-the-night idea, it’s just grown from there.� George said her own upbringing involved being outdoors, spending time with friends and playing sports. She didn’t mention TV or electronic/video games. “Much of my time was spent with my family: sharing homemade meals, swinging in the backyard, creating forts out of sheets and playing card games.� She said that after giving birth to her first child, her perspective changed. “I always enjoyed spending time outdoors and had an appreciation for nature, but I was never much of a leader in terms of environmental appreciation and dedication. Once I welcomed a baby into our home, I wanted to learn more about information, products, ingredients.� She started running the shop out of their garage “When we opened the business, I got a job with the school board,� she said. “So, for the first year, I taught and ran the business. Then along came our second child.� Their 2009 family addition was a daughter, Ryann. In March 2012, Scarlett was born. As the shop in their home expanded, they opened a store in the west end.

EDUCATION

Mr. Tim Hudak, Leader of the Opposition Party, Extols the Virtues of Career Colleges In his White Paper, released February 2013, the Leader of the Opposition Party in Ontario, stated that Career Colleges are among our provinces most efficient paths to employment. The party’s document, entitled “Paths to Prosperity,” discusses long-overdue and necessary changes in education sector. Mr. Hudak applauds Career Colleges, saying that they offer what traditional college and university systems cannot; they provide

the kind of intensive training required by today’s employers in our adapting economy; they aid in the development of our Canadian labour force. Mr. Hudak praised, “Career Colleges are perfectly positioned to help Ontarians adapt to these changes as quickly as possible.” Mr. Hudak’s White Paper recognizes that Career Colleges in Ontario alone train over 60,000 students each year. His document calls for the Ministry of Training, Colleges

grams at over 600 campuses in 70 communities. It employs 12,000 staff, and annually produces approximately 50,000 skilled graduates at a minimal cost to taxpayers, due to the fact that Career Colleges receive no direct operating funds from the government. By choosing to study at a Career College, those 50,000 graduates save taxpayers more than $1 billion per annum. At the same time, the Career College sector generates more than $94 million in business

and Universities (MCTU) to “treat those institutions with a long track record of success with the respect they deserve… These Career Colleges do not require funding to build classrooms…. From the perspective of a cash-strapped government, this should be considered indispensable to the province.” According to an economic impact study conducted by OACC, “The Career College sector in Ontario currently offers more than 5,000 pro-

and payroll taxes.” The White Paper summarizes its view on the Career College Sector in Path 13, by saying that Career Colleges “…with strong, proven track records, should be rewarded by a reduction in the costly and time-consuming regulatory burden they currently experience on a regular basis so they can be freer to take on students looking to gain access to the job market.” When asked for her reaction to Mr. Hudak’s press

conference, Heidi Collins, Director of Marketing and Sales, said, “Academy of Learning College is honoured to be part of the Career College Sector which increases student choice, meets employer needs, and delivers trained workers for a new economy. We are thrilled that someone of Mr. Hudak’s stature has finally spoken up for our sector’s efforts.” The complete White Paper can be read at http://ontariopc. uberflip.com/i/108917.

non-plastic items.” There are even stainless steel popsicle molds. Natalie George plans to expand the shop in the spring. “There are two really exciting things happening,” she said. “There’s going to be a consignment section of the store. Some natural items are priced higher, and not everyone can necessarily afford them. With the consignment option, it will make things more affordable for families.” The other area of growth will be in the workshops George offers. She brings in community professionals to lead sessions on a variety of topics. One of the current sessions is called Childhood Matters. “It’s a workshop series for moms of toddlers and older kids,” said George. “We’ve had presentations on things like meal planning and preparation, proper posture and movement, nutrition and

PARENTHOOD From page 15

“Families spend so much time researching which new phone, television or electronic gadget to purchase, or which car has the best features or gas mileage. We question the shoe salesman about which shoe will be best for walking or jogging. Yet we spend little time researching or asking questions about products that we are putting on or in our body and environment.” Some of the most recent additions at Go Green Baby include art supplies and wooden toys. “We started as a baby shop, carrying mostly baby items. As our kids grew, we searched for products we wanted for them. The lunch bags are made locally. We have a go green lunch box. It’s like a Japanese bento box, mostly made from natural

kids’ ailments,” said George. “This workshop series is insanely popular. The last time, there were 12 people involved. This time, there are more than 20 moms. But our workshop space is limited. In the spring, the back wall will be coming out and we’ll be expanding. We’ll have a community room back there.” The profits from the workshop series to community groups like Mother Circle, a free support group for new moms. “Parenting is filled with pressure, judgments and guilt,” said George. “No one is ever going to agree with everything we do as parents. Being confident and staying informed about the choices you are making for your family will build strong, healthy children who appreciate and show compassion for the world around them.” For more information, visit www.go-greenbaby.ca or www. mothercirlcekingston.com.

On a cold winter’s day, nothing is more satisfying than a comforting meal Columnist

EMC Lifestyle - I am one of those annoying people who love the snow. After living abroad for a time, I came to appreciate it even more. A heavy snowfall can make leaving the house difficult and offers an opportunity to spend time indoors. On those snow days, my family and I read, watch movies and break out board games. When we play, it’s a no holds barred affair. A card game can be an in-

tense session; we are not quiet about winning. All in jest, my daughter would hashtag it “#good-times”. (This is, of course, after I tempt her away from Wi-Fi. In fact, my daughter claims no Wi-Fi is more incomprehensible than driving in snow.)Recently, however, when a forecasted storm didn’t materialize into much, my family and I decided to hit the hills. Admittedly, I am not a great skier, but I like the idea of skiing because of things like the view while ascend-

ing the lift, the sun as it cascades across the hill, and the fresh mountain air. I am getting better, but I fear for the ole’ joints; my daughter has no fear. On our recent trip, she followed me up the bunny hill for her warm-up. In reality, she was there to watch me as I disembarked the lift. I appear to know what I am doing. That is, until I reach the top, raise the bar, glide down the ramp and land head first in the closest snow bank. Sometimes, it’s even a scramble to get up in time so the person

behind doesn’t land on me. After the first few runs, I’m convinced I should remain on the beginner hills. The lift supervisor would rather I went to the bar, especially when he has to stop the lift to hoist me off the ground, again. By then, the family has left me to tackle the black diamonds. They find me at the end of the day, grateful I am still intact. Let’s face it, on a cold winter day there is nothing more satisfying than a comforting meal. After a day on the hills, I decided to whip up an old family favourite. When I was in my youth, cacciatore was one of the first things I learned to cook, oddly enough from a friend’s older brother. This recipe, Italian chicken alla cacciatore is basically an Italian style chicken stew. I amended it by adding diced celery and chunks of green pepper. The whole pieces of chicken were the real hit. The meat is tender, falling off the bone. If you’re making the recipe for children, you may want to use diced chicken breast. The shitake mushrooms were lovely and meaty, making the gravy much richer. Enjoy this with a bottle of red wine and crusty bread.

R0011939527

By Kate Kristiansen

Italian-style chicken stew (chicken alla cacciatore) Serves 4-6 Ingredients One 3-½ pound chicken, cut into 10 pieces 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 1 cup of dry white wine 2 tablespoons of olive oil 2 tablespoons Marsala wine 1 medium onion, thinly sl iced 1 can (15 ounces) peeled plum tomatoes, coarsely chopped with their juices 1 cup thinly sliced white mushrooms 1 cup thinly sliced shitake mushrooms 1 teaspoon of fresh thyme leaves ¼ cup chopped fresh flatleaf parsley, for garnish Pat the chicken and season to taste with salt and pepper. In a large covered skillet, heat the oil over medium– high heat. Add the chicken (in batches if necessary) and cook, turning until browned, about seven minutes. Transfer

to a plate. Add the onion to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, for three minutes. Add the white and shitake mushrooms and garlic and cook, stirring until the mushrooms are softened, about five minutes. Pour in the white wine and Marsala and bring to a boil, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Add the tomatoes and their juices, broth, and thyme. Bring to a boil again and return the chicken to the pan along with its accumulated juices. Reduce the heat and simmer, partially covered, turning the chicken pieces occasionally, for 40-45 minutes. The chicken should be very tender and the sauce slightly reduced and thickened. Season to taste with more salt and pepper, if necessary. Garnish with parsley and serve. (I also added spring onions and parmesan to the garnish) To share your favorite recipes or let me know a local restaurant that you’d like me to check out, email ladydinesalot@gmail.com or follow me on Facebook.

Artists Keith Cornell, Gary Matthews and Mariel Waddell invite area residents Into the Woods By Kristen Coughlar

Kcoughlar@perfprint.ca

EMC Lifestyle – Beginning March 19, Kingston Glass Studio and Gallery is inviting area residents to explore Canada’s wilderness through the eyes of three regional artists. Into the Woods is an exhibit featuring the works of landscape artist Keith Cor-

nell, wood turner Gary Matthews and glass artist Mariel Waddell. Waddell, who is also coowner of the Kingston Glass Studio and Gallery, said the initial inspiration for the show came after she saw Cornell’s work. “When I saw Keith’s art I knew I wanted to do a show with him,” she said.

Cornell shares his passion for the outdoors thorough his acrylic landscape scenes of Hastings and Northumberland counties and Algonquin Provincial Park. Waddell said she was inspired by his work. She approached him about making pieces geared to his paintings. “His pieces are so Cana-

dian based and from the start I’ve been doing work that is Caribbean based, “ Waddell explained, noting that she is from Trinidad. She has also lived in other tropical countries, which has helped form the foundation of her inspiration. “This show, I’m kind of changing my ways and using the same techniques—sculpting and adding glass bits to a

The work of artists Keith Cornell, Mariel Waddell and Gary Matthews is featured in Into the Woods, an exhibit running March 19 to June 16 at the Kingston Glass Studio and Gallery.

those successes will be on display during Into the Woods. Also on exhibit will be works by Matthews. Matthews has been turning bowls in his workshop near the village of Tamworth for 22 years. His work is carried by the Kingston Glass Studio and Gallery, and is meant to be both functional and ornamental. Like Cornell, this will be Matthews’ first collaborative exhibit. “I think it’s great because you get more of a vast interest from people,” he said of the show and the varying mediums represented. “It will appeal to a wide range of people.” Waddell said it was only natural to ask Matthews to be a part of Into the Woods. “Just look at his work…He just fit right into the theme,” she said. Waddell said she believes the Into the Woods exhibit will resonate with area residents. She believes she might even see people buying multiple pieces. “If you see the card we did, it has a painting in the background, a vase and bowl in the front. It just ties in so well; it becomes one big piece.” Into the Woods runs March 19 to June 16. There will be an opening reception March 21 from 7-9 p.m. R0011937000

form—and creating trees. I’m going from my Caribbean inspiration to more of a Canadian experience. We’re gong to be making glass acorns and glass maple leafs; it’s really going to be a Canadian forest theme,” she said. This type of collaborative exhibit will be a first for Cornell, who said he typically has one-man shows in galleries across the province. “I’m really looking forward to this,” he said. At the exhibit, Cornell will showcase some of his latest works. He recently moved from the City of Toronto to the village of Castleton, located in the rural township of Cramahe. The artist said the move has had a positive impact on his work. “It’s made a big difference living right in the middle of the bush. I just have to walk out of the front door to paint,” he said. “My work seems to have improved. It seems easier to paint and I have fewer duds and more successes.” Approximately a dozen of

From art to activism, International Women’s Week to raise awareness of women’s rights, talents and strengths By Hollie Pratt-Campbell

hpratt-campbell@theemc.ca

EMC Events - A little boy stargazing on a tree branch beside a giant owl. A child drifting on a raft at sea, exchanging a smile with a friendly whale. A young girl bonding with a fox as dandelion fluff drifts whimsically by. Agnes Koller’s art aims to remind us of a time when imagination ruled our minds and the stuff of fairytales and storybooks seemed possible. Koller is one of 75 women artists and vendors to be featured Saturday at Kingston’s International Women’s Week kick-off event, the She Creates One of a Kind Show. The show takes place at Portsmouth Olympic Harbour from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Koller, a stay-at-home mom and freelance graphic designer, was inspired to start creating art a little over a year ago by her seven-year-old son and fouryear-old daughter. “Having children really opened my eyes in different ways,� she explains. “I wanted to create beautiful images that would inspire people to maybe have a sense of curiosity about

the world around them. I incorporate a lot of animals and natural things along with children...Although they’re not really based on a story, they might remind you of a story you’ve heard.� Koller remarks that her mother, a retired physician, has even begun to write stories inspired by her works of art. “It’s really nice how the whole family [has become involved],� she says. “It incorporates everyone in a way.� Themes of equality and benevolence run throughout Koller’s work, tying in nicely with the message of women’s rights and equality promoted by International Women’s Week. “I wanted to have the children kind of around the same size as the animals,� she says. “It’s not necessarily that they’re overpowering the animals or that the animals are overpowering them, but that there’s kind of a kinship on an even level.� As a passionate advocate for women’s rights, Koller also sees her art as a means of representing and drawing attention to important perspectives and talents possessed by many women. “Part of my goal as an art-

ist is to bring beauty into the world, and I think that’s something women do through nurturing, [etc.]� she says. “It’s not explicit, but I think implicitly [women] always strive to make the lives of their children more beautiful.� Koller notes that She Creates gives artists and vendors valuable exposure, and provides an important opportunity for them to meet one another and develop a sense of community: “[She Creates] really has a community feel to it. [Last year’s] was only my third show ever, but it’s a show that I love to do every year. It was a really great experience – there was just a great energy in room.� Michelle LaMarche, local International Women’s Week organizer and communications and education coordinator at Kingston Interval House, explains that she hopes She Creates will not only allow members of the public to realize the tremendous wealth of talent to be found among female artists in the community, but also alert them to the issues highlighted during International Women’s Week. “Our hope is that people un-

a high-profile event, she says, helps with this cause. “One of the reasons we do the larger event at the beginning is we want to raise awareness about the other events that are happening through International Women’s Week and encourage people to come out to them, because there’s quite a variety of different things.�

In particular, LaMarche encourages members of the public to become involved with a “surprise� International Women’s Day Action event, taking place March 8 both downtown and in the west end.

The heart of clutter is a design issue House & Home

By Merola Tahamtan merolatahamtandesigns@live.ca

EMC Lifestyle - Clutter is the enemy of any home design. It’s not only unappealing, masking the underlying decorative elements that make your home beautiful, it also makes life complicated in a number of ways. The disorganization that breeds clutter costs you valuable time, making you search for what should be apparent and causing vast frustration in the process. Clutter negatively impacts how you enjoy your home because you continually feel as if things are out of place and untidy. With this nice weather, it’s the perfect time to restore order to your home. This week, we undertake the entryway in our home. The essential solution to disorganization and clutter has to be built in, part of the very design of our home. Clutter doesn’t happen by accident. It’s the result of not having a proper place to put things. In some cases, it’s a matter of getting rid of the item itself- it’s “place” is with

a local charity, in a garage sale or in the garbage. However, in most cases, you need to give all the clutter in your houseloose clothes, magazines, kitchen utensils- a clearly defined place to go, and it’s best if this place itself is a design element ( for example, a set of stylish hooks by the front door or a sleek hanging rack in the kitchen). When organization is part of the design of your house, it becomes second nature in your life. An interior design that actually helps you avoid disorder is logically streamlined, resulting in both visual appeal and efficiency. Entryways come in all shapes and sizes, from the self-contained mudroom to the wide-open formal foyer and the narrow entry hall. And, of course, many homes have more than one, with a formal front entryway for greeting guests and visitors, and an informal side entrance that is regularly used by family and close friends. Every entryway shares the same organizational challenges. In the flurry of coming indoors, visitors and family alike are likely to shed outerwear and whatever they have brought in with them wherever they can find a place. Keeping these spaces tidy and welcoming means finding a place for all things that unavoidably will be left- whether they belong there or not. This is why stor-

age solutions must account for what is naturally kept there, such as coats, mittens and other garments, as well as what is awaiting removal to another area, such as mail, packages, catalogs, and more. Not every entryway has a closet, but where one exists it should be designed to be as useful as possible given the traffic through the door. The three basic elements that any entryway closet should have are a degree of shelf space for packages, with storage bins and baskets included as necessary; a hanging rod for coats and other garments; and hooks for clothing that do not require a hanger, such as scarves. If the closet is large enough, you can place a rack for footwear inside so that shoes and boots do not tarnish the look of the entryway. Generally, the most efficient organization for entryway closets is to group garments by season, unless your seasonal outerwear is stored in the attic, bedroom, or elsewhere. In larger entryways with no closet, a wardrobe can provide stylish extra storage space. Available in many different wood finishes, these pieces of furniture offer an profusion of storage, including a hanging rod, drawers, shelves, and often places for footwear. Individual hooks and pegs can quickly be positioned right where people take off

coats and scarves, but more often than not, hooks and pegs will be incorporated into a larger, more complete unit, such as a wall-mounted shelf or wood rack with a row of pegs or hooks below. These generally offer an informal look, but you can find hooks in a wide range of styles, from unadorned wood versions to ornate chrome pieces that serve almost as architectural detailing. With clutter it’s often the small things that matter, and in the entryway they tend to defy efforts at neatness. That’s why you need to turn to dedicated storage units to help keep little things from becoming big frustrations. In almost every entryway this means finding a place for mail, packages, and keys. You may also need a place for cell phones, personal music devices and other electronics that are used outside the house. You can save the expense and limited decorative choices of store-bought small storage aids by putting

existing decorative bowls, tins, boxes, and bins into service in the entryway. Use a set of ceramic bowls for pocket change, keys and other loose items such as lipsticks. Or, keep small items enclosed in a pretty bamboo bin or small stone box. You can hold mail in almost any shallow, broad container, from a lacquered serving tray to a large, hammered silver platter. As long as the container can reasonably fit what you regularly need to store in the entryway, let your imagination and design sense be your guides in adapting storage. Any entryway benefits from a place to sit for a moment, whether to gather yourself after bustling in the door or, more likely, to take off shoes and jackets. In a formal vestibule, this may be a nice chair or satee. More often, it will be a slightly utilitarian piece of furniture that can stand up to use by children and busy adults, such as a bench. In the best of all

possible worlds, this piece of furniture will serve more than one function, offering a place to sit and some sort of storage. Organization is made more difficult by the fact that many entryways are very small. There’s a limited amount of space to work with, so storage solutions must themselves be very efficient. They must also be chosen with an eye toward style, because any organizing accessories in this area inevitably become decorative accents. Whether in the front or back of the house, modest or grand, a well-organized entryway makes a favorable first impression on a visitor and a comfortable transition space to the living areas of your home.

EMC - Your Community Newspaper

Car Counsellor Brian turner

EMC Lifestyle - I have received quite a few emails over the last two weeks on the topic of Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vehicle emission test and how the recent changes are driving some car owners past the limit. The biggest problem seems to be the higher than expected fail rate for this new diagnostic scan test because vehiclesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on-board computers and systems arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t meeting the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;readiness requirementsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; of the new test. Januaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fail rate due to this problem was eight per cent. The Ministry of the Environment has put out some tips for drivers to follow to reduce the risk of failing the test and they can be found at www.driveclean.com under the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;car owners: how to make sure your car is test-readyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; link. I will follow up with my Ontario Ministry of Environment contacts at the end of February to see if this fail rate has improved and publish the results in a March column.

JosĂŠe Bessette with the Ministry of Transportation Road Safety Marketing Office recently passed along another gem that demonstrates straightforward messaging to get the point across that distracted driving is too much of a risk. It seems that the Alberta government launched a new public awareness campaign this past week aimed at getting younger male drivers to give up their texting habits while driving. As is the norm in Alberta they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mince words and the theme of this multimedia campaign is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Crotches Killâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; referring to the obvious sign of a texting driver; he or she keeps looking down at their lap (crotch) where theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re operating the text feature on their cell-phone, thinking no one is the wiser because they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see the phone. Problem is, that more than one study has shown that every time drivers text,

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hey, Just reading your article in the Frontenac EMC on tire studs. Isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it amusing they sell both the tires (studable winters) and studs in tire stores located in southern Ontario (even though theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not legal to use here)? Not to mention our government for some reason finds dumping tons of salt on the roads somehow OK for the environment. Over the years all that salt seeping into the ground waters has got to create some sort of problem. Naturally as with any problem our wise officials

(even a short message), they take their eyes off the road for a full five seconds. That may seem like a short period of time, but at 110 kph on a busy highway your vehicle can travel a long way and get into a lot of trouble in five seconds. The campaign includes posters, web animation, social-media messages and a talking urinal puck for the restrooms in bars and lounges to get the message directly to the target audience. Alberta gets points for this one. Check it out at www. saferoads.com/drivers/ distracted_driving_campaign.html. It seems that every day, technology is putting some method of doing something out to the curb for collection. The latest is an auto safety system thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been around for a few decades. Most adult drivers will remember their driving instructorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; commands to keep their hands at the 10 and two position on the steering wheel (referring to the orientation of those two numbers on the face of a clock). With the presence of explosive air-bags on the steering wheel, this is no longer a safe way of steering a vehicle. The force of an air-bagâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deployment can move hands off the steering wheel and back into the driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face with amazing speed risk-

will worry about a solution well after itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably far too late. Water is a far more important commodity than torn up roads. For that matter thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plenty of roads that are absolutely horrendous in the cities Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve driven not to mention the 401 in certain areas. I think the salted roads should end, make everybody take road testing in winter conditions, learn to drive in the slippery elements we deal with in Canada and let people put proper tires/studs on their vehicles. I use chains around my area (Mt Grove, Central Frontenac) but they only are good for speeds under 50 kph. Although going slow is part of the equation in icy/slippery conditions Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d much prefer to have a winter set with studs. Thanks for pointing out an obvious problem for winter driving.â&#x20AC;? Paul

is a 1952 Ford F-1 pickup truck advertised around 1978 in The Reflector, the official publication of the Antique and Classic Car Club of Canada: “1952 Ford pickup truck from Manitoba - $1200 or best offer.” Barry bought it.  “It sported worn but original Sheridan (navy) blue paint with black fenders.  The body was covered with bumps and scrapes but was nearly rust free.  The driver’s seat had been covered with a canvas material – probably from a binder.  It was the deluxe model with the five star extra cab and it actually ran (it still had a flathead V8 engine). In 1979, before I took it to our cottage, it took part in the 75th Ford of Canada Homecoming in Oakville (Ford of Canada began in Windsor in 1904, just one year after the parent company was incorporated in Detroit).  It was the rough-

cottage to the dump and performed other minor duties. During these years, it only required brakes, battery, tires, and regular maintenance.  “My intention at the beginning,” says Barry, “was to restore the truck to original specifications, but with work, kids, a mortgage, et cetera, it just didn’t happen.  And then about four years ago, the old truck decided that it just didn’t want to start and so it sat in the garage.” In November 2012, Barry and a friend trailered the

’52 Ford pickup home to Toronto so he could work on it over the winter. It sits in one of the two bays in his garage.  The garage is comfortable - well lit and insulated with a forced air natural gas furnace.  There is a radio but no phone and it’s an ideal place to fix up an old truck. When the truck emerges in the spring, it will look the same as in the photo you see here:  “I will make the truck safe and reliable,” explains Barry, “but if I restore it to showroom condition, all the evidence of

Seedy Saturday: a celebration of seeds Kcoughlar@perfprint.ca

EMC Events - For Andreas Frantzeskos, gardening gives him life. Frantzeskos and his wife first moved to Canada from Cyprus in 1976. He says it was the year 1983, while living in Melba, Saskatchewan, that he started gardening vegetables and flowers. He did so for 11 years, until he moved to the City of Kingston in 1994. “The first house we were renting didn’t have a garden, but a year later we moved to another house and I started gardening again, vegetables and flowers,” he says. Some years later, Frantzeskos came across the Heirloom Tomato Day celebration, held annually by the Heirloom Seed Sanctuary and the Sisters of Providence of St. Vincent de Paul. He took away

some tomato seeds from the festivities that year, and began attending seed-saving workshops at the sanctuary. Today, Frantzesko saves seed from and grows everything from tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, carrots, lettuce, beans, parsnip, artichoke, asparagus, spinach, chard, herbs and flowers. Some of the herbs, including coriander and arugula are from his home of Cyprus. “All my days in the summertime are spent outside, and my wife is always complaining,” he laughs. “She says, “‘I’m going to get you a bed to sleep outside.’” Frantzeskos says he finds the art of gardening very relaxing. “As you get old, you get tired more easily, but when I’m out there I’m going all day and I don’t get tired. I don’t know what it is— the fresh air, the soil, the atmo-

sphere—it gives you life, energy to work.” Frantzeskos will be one of a number of people attending Seedy Saturday March 16, an event that promotes responsible stewardship of our seed heritage. “Any kind of gardening event, I’m in it,” he says. Not only will Frantzeskos be attending the Seedy Saturday event, he will also be part of a panel discussion on Backyard Urban Seed Savers. Joining him on this panel will be fellow seed saver Wendy Luella Perkins. Luella Perkins has lived in Kingston for nearly 20 years, but spent her youth growing up on a farm in Halifax, Nova Scotia. She says her family saved the seeds of things like beans, peas and flowers, but each year they would get out the seed catalogues and select what they planned to grow that

year. Growing up on a farm gave her what she describes as a “love for the land.” While she’s lived in cities since 1984, Luella Perkins says she has always tried to maintain a little garden. It wasn’t until 2004, however, that she really began intentionally saving seed. She connected with a bunch of farmers through the National Farmers Union as well as Carol and Robert Mouck, who established the Heirloom Seed Sanctuary. “They were teaching people how to save seed and I just got into it; it really made a lot of sense to me,” she says. “For 20,000 years maybe, 70,000 years some people say, our ancestors collected seeds…For me, it’s like part of our shared heritage, and the idea of patents on seed, the idea that corporations have control of that genetic diversity, just seems wrong to me.” For Luella Perkins, the motivation for saving seed is not only political, but also social. Events like Seedy Saturday, for instance. “People in the community are growing out different varieties of things, things that they really love…and then they come and share it with the community,” she says, adding that the event includes a seed swap, where people can bring in their saved seed to share and swap with other seed savers. Luella Perkins said that she herself saves mainly fruits, vegetables, herbs and sunflowers. Seedy Saturday is not only an event for those who already save seed, but also an opportunity for those who have never saved seed to introduce themselves to the process. “It’s a great place to come and learn from folks who save seed how to do it,” Luella Perkins said. “I’m hoping that some of the folks that come out are just curious about seeds, even though they might never have saved before, and will feel encouraged and get some resources, get some seeds and maybe talk to some people who are able to help them along the way.” In addition to the panel discussion on Backyard Urban Seed Savers, which will also include Gillian

UPCOMING SHOWS

Boden, Seedy Saturday will also feature presentations by Tom Pawlick on Seeds of Resistance: greed, and corporate threat to our health and food and Tasmin Rajotte on why international negotiations on genetic resources, seeds and intellectual property matter to you, as well as a kid-friendly workshop on converting household waste to nutrient rich planter and garden soil with Gerrie Baker. Seedy Saturday is supported by the Sisters of Providence of St. Vincent de Paul Heirloom Seed Sanctuary. Admission is $2. Cate Henderson, gardener and seed saver at the Heirloom Seed Sanctuary, is excited for this upcoming celebration of seeds. In previous years, the event has attracted more than 200 people.

Henderson is hopeful the 2013 event will see the same turnout. “It’s growing in popularity,” she says. “I would say people are sort of getting the idea of local food and then extending that to local seed, local food is grown from local seed.” Seedy Saturday will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. March 16 at the Kingston Unitarian Fellowship, 206 Concession St. The kids’ workshop with Gerrie Baker is schedule for 10 a.m., followed by the panel discussion featuring Andreas Frantzeskos, Gillian Boden and Wendy Luella Perkins at 11 a.m. Tasmin Rajotte will present at 1 p.m. followed by Tom Pawlick at 2 p.m. The seed swap will run throughout the day.

Snitch surprises as thoughtful film with political message Mary Cook

MOVIE: Snitch STARRING: Dwayne Johnson, Jon Bernthal, Barry Pepper, and Susan Sarandon Pat DIRECTOR: Ric Roman Waugh Trew RATING: PG

My Take BY MARK HASKINS

EMC Entertainment The previews made me think Snitch might be another Walking Tall. So I was surprised to realize Snitch is a dramatic piece with serious political overtones. the U.S. they have BYIn JOHN TUCKER what are called minimum sentence laws for drug offences. Essentially they

Canada Jack

enforce incredibly harsh prison time for anyone arrested with drugs. There are no mitigating factors unless you’re willing to snitch on someone else. Jason Collins (Rafi Gavron) becomes the victim of this law. A friend of his sent him a massive amount of drugs. Jason didn’t want the package, he told his friend not to send it, but he accepted it anyway. It was a dumb move, but it doesn’t make him a drug dealer. Unfortunately the whole thing was a sting operation because Jason’s friend had already been arrested, and told the DEA Jason was a drug dealer. Jason is looking at 10

to 30 years of hard time unless he’s willing to snitch on someone else. The problem is he doesn’t know anyone else, and he isn’t going to set up one of his friends like he was set up. This leaves his father, John Matthews (Dwayne Johnson), desperate for a way to help his son. John goes to the DEA, Joanne Keeghan (Susan Saradon), to make a deal. He’s willing to go undercover to help arrest drug dealers in return for reducing his son’s sentence. She’s reluctant, but eventually agrees. It’s an election year, and she needs a big arrest to make her look good in the polls. John gets one of his former employees, an ex-con named Daniel (Jon Bernthal), to introduce him to the right people. From there John puts things in motion so the police can make an arrest. However events spin out of control, and John finds himself in over his head. If he can’t find a way out he won’t be the only one to pay for it. The implications of the minimum sentencing laws are staggering, and the way Snitch brings it to light

makes for a very compelling film. This is a decent dramatic piece made all the more so by the director’s strong political message. I think there’s a lot to be said for using strong convictions to tell stories. It gives the film a focus and a direction that motivates everyone involved. I’m always surprised when Dwayne Johnson

tries to act. I can’t help picturing him as just a guy who throws punches. I forget he can deliver some pretty convincing dialogue, and has a decent range of emotion. The rest of the cast is very good. I seriously disliked Susan Sarandon’s character, but then again I was supposed to. Barry Pepper does a good turn

as an experienced DEA agent, and Jon Bernthal is particularly impressive. Snitch is inspired by true events though I couldn’t say what true events inspired it. Nonethe-less the film delivers a strong message in a good story. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

You should have some downtime, and you can use this time to catch up and reconnect with your loved one GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, some levels of communication may be compromised this week, so your messages may not reach the intended recipient. It could take a little longer to get your point across. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, your boundless energy keeps people happy and engaged and should be used as much as possible in the next few days. You also could be sought after to fix problems. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, tap into your creative side to shake things up and stave off some boredom. Others may think your actions are suspect, but you know these efforts will help you achieve your ultimate goal. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 You have to accept that things change and you cannot preserve the present, Virgo. That said, start making plans for new things for this year starting with right now. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, although you are able to think quickly, you much prefer to have things organized. If you have a presentation to make next week, start working on it now. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, the coming week may try your patience. Relax when the week starts to prove too stressful, and you will make it through the week with your peace of mind intact. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, some people you know may be caught up wondering about past decisions that might not have worked out. Help them to focus on the here and now. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, while you are glad to lend a helping hand when you are asked, the request that comes in this week could be so big that you may actually be caught off-guard. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 It is hard to make progress this week, especially since it could feel like you’re going at a snail’s pace. Stick with it and everything on your list is likely to get done. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, although you can certainly use your share of the limelight, let another person shine this week and you’ll have your own glow.
