Community fights to keep “Sharbot Lake” in new school name By Hollie Pratt-Campbell hpratt-campbell@theemc.ca

EMC News - A busload of concerned citizens clad in green and white made their way from Sharbot Lake to the Limestone District School Board’s March 6 meeting to protest the name chosen for their community’s new school, the Granite Ridge Education Centre. The group believes that the new school, slated to open during the next school year, should instead be called the Sharbot Lake Education Centre. In a delegation to the Board, their spokesperson, Jamie Riddell, questioned the validity of the procedure by which the name

was chosen, and emphasized the importance of the name Sharbot to the community. He explained a number of reasons that led him to believe the name Granite Ridge was picked by the Board before members of the public had any opportunity to give input, despite the appearance of a communitybased sub-committee organized to provide feedback. “The lack of communication to the public is another concern to me,” Riddell said. “Being a parent with children in your system I see the amount of notices that do make it home. I did see the notice calling for public input in the naming of our school but I did not see, did not receive and

did not know until the announcement of the name that it was that far along.” Riddell said he believes the process should have been democratic, and called the board out for ignoring what he sees as the clear opinion of the community: that the new school should retain “Sharbot Lake” in its name. He concluded by telling the board “let us see you fix this mistake and by doing so restore our faith in your judgement. Let’s see you give our school the name it deserves, the name that we the majority feel best represents past, current and future Panthers...You can serve the best interest of the people you serve by giving our new school

its proper name...:Sharbot Lake District Education Centre.” The LDSB’s Director of Education and Secretary Brenda Hunter then gave a presentation explaining the process that was used to come up with the name. She emphasized that as per the official LDSB Administrative Procedure, “the final choice of a school name shall rest solely with the Limestone District School Board.” Hunter then explained that a sub-committee including parents, students and staff from the affected schools, which was organized to coordinate public feedback, found the most common thread among suggestions was a wish to

convey the natural beauty of the geography in the Sharbot Lake area. The overseeing integration committee later discussed concerns that the name Sharbot Lake was not inclusive of the new school community, as the new education centre would include students from communities outside of the town itself. The committee felt that it was time for a new beginning. LDSB chair Helen Chadwick later noted that the Board has heard “varying levels of support from different community members, and some people were supportive of the name [Granite Ridge]”.

Follow the golden rules of farm safety

By Theresa Whalen

CFA Farm Safety Consultant

R0011963741

You’ve set out the safety plan for your farm. Now – how do you get the work team to use it? Farm operations that are successful in motivating compliance with farm safety rules pay careful attention to: preparation, presentation, reinforcement, enforcement and leadership by example. First – re-open the rule

sheet. Preparation of farm safety rules should involve employee input – if they help create the rules, they are far more likely to follow them. Rules should be kept to a minimum and be as practical as possible. Give reasons for the rules to help with understanding. Post the rules in a highly visible place as a frequent reminder to all. Use the ‘KISS’ principle – Keep It Short and Simple! Presentation of farm safety rules is most effective

when given from a few different angles. For example, give each worker a written copy of your farm safety rules AND post the rules is a highly visible place AND talk with workers as you walk around the farm to discuss the practical applications of the safety rules. Be sure to get feedback and ask questions to ensure workers understand the information. Upon completion, document the training experience and have each employee sign off their review of the safety rules. Reinforcement of farm safety rules can be done in a variety of ways. Host regular ‘toolbox talks’ to informally review safety practices. Emphasize safety when giving instructions for the day’s work. Reward good safety practices with positive recognition to workers for a job well done. Do a full review

of safety procedures with employees at least once a year. Enforcement of rules should be ďŹ rm, fair and friendly. The traditional form of disciplinary action is a four-step process of verbal warning, written warning, suspension, and ďŹ nally termination. Written documentation of this process is the only way employers can prove they tried to enforce safety rules in a reasonable way. It is extremely important that appropriate corrective action be taken whenever rules are violated - not just when an incident happens. The idea is that people’s behaviour should be corrected and returned to compliance in a consistent manner, whenever there is a violation, not just for having an incident. Leadership example is one of the most powerful

ways of motivating farm safety. When the employer ‘walks the talk’ and demonstrates that the safe way is the only way to work – then employees will do so as well. Safety then becomes a natural part of doing each and every job on the farm. “Plan • Farm • Safetyâ€? is the three-year theme of the Canadian Agricultural Safety campaign, which was launched in March. Each aspect of the theme will be promoted over the next three

Currently, negotiations are in what EMC News – Organizers estimated about 150 people filled the Perth Li- all parties (the Algonquins, the Proons Hall last Thursday night to hear vincial Government and the Federal

$300 million will be transferred to the Algonquins of Ontario. The agreement also provides recommended approaches for addressing Algonquin harvesting rights, forestry, parks and protected areas, Algonquin heritage and culture as well as Algonquin eligibility and enrolment. “One of the fundamental principles established is that there will be no private lands taken and no change in the scheme of Algonquin Park,” said provincial negotiator Brian Crane. Unlike most First Nations, the Algonquins of Ontario have never had a land surrender treaty with the Crown, despite petitioning for one since 1772. The Algonquins of Ontario are comprised of 10 Algonquin communities located across the settlement area, including the Pikwakanagan First Nation (formerly Golden Lake) and Shabot Obaadjiwan First Nation, and consist of more than 8,700 eligible voters determined through the enrolment and eligibility process set out in the PDAIP. The lands and funds transferred will not be subject to The Indian Act, said Algonquin negotiator Alan Pratt. “These will not be reserve lands,” Pratt said. “This is an unusual situation in that there are a number of nonstatus people being beneficiaries. “If they want to set up a residential

subdivision or strip mall, they can.” Pratt said the lands will be subject to municipal zoning regulations and taxation, however. “Prior to transfer, each plot will be given a planning designation and subject to the (municipalities’) rules,” he said. “(And) land municipalities (that) don’t get to tax today will now be under their taxable jurisdiction.” Pratt also said that while beneficiaries of the settlement must declare their association with a recognized collective, the collective doesn’t have to be one of the 10 currently in negotiation. “Although it’s not part of the settlement, there is an Algonquin Constitution underway,” he said. “The land transfers are not reserves,” said Crane. “They will still be subject to municipal laws and planning will apply. “Mining claims will continue until they expire, as will logging claims, and although Algonquins will have title to the land, that is still subject to existing roads and navigable waterways. “In some cases, fee-for-service will apply.” The negotiators agreed that the PDAIP is just a first step however, and it will likely be 10 years or more before an actual agreement is in place.”

Frontenac Islands honours Jubilee Medal recipients Correspondent

EMC News- Frontenac Island’s Mayor Denis Doyle welcomed family friends and neighbours an evening held to honour four Wolfe Islanders known to have received the Queen Elizabeth 11 Jubilee Medal. “Known members” of the community, because perhaps there are others who may have received the medals and have said nothing about it. That’s how it was, for instance in the case of Perry Chesney, who was presented with a medal at a large event held in Kingston. Perry was nominated and chosen for his long years of service with the Wolfe Island Volunteer Ambulance Service. Since Perry said little about the honour few would have known, except he was listed as a recipient in a news paper article. Another lately identified recipient was Lynn McAllister recognized for years of committed service within the Penal Services Only a mere mention by a family member brought her name to light when told about other island recipients of the medal. Perhaps most known about was Dr. George Merry, one of 30 members of Ducks Unlimited Canada widely chosen, to receive the medal for his work with them nationally and locally. The fourth was Margaret Knott, who was presented with a medal by Mayor Denis Doyle at the townships February meeting held on Howe Island. Knott was nominated for long dedicated service to communities. In his opening remarks at the evening honouring all four medalists Mayor Doyle commented that per capita Frontenac Islands had more people recognized than any where else in the province. “We are very proud of their achievements,” he said. Also in attendance were Councillors Barbara Springgay and Wayne Grant. Along with well wishers, a beautiful cake, and flowers, much picture taking highlighted the evening coordinated by Theresa Quist. Proudly displayed were individual certificates and materials pertaining to the Queen’s Jubilee Medal. 2. Council questions why a funding grant denied. At the February, Township Council meeting, staff was asked to enquire why a grant requested for assistance in upgrading Wolfe Island’s winter dock road was denied by the Municipal Infrastructure Investment Initiative (OMAFRA). The road was originally built, owned

and maintained by the Province of Ontario. It was turned over to the township at the time of “The Who Does What? “ by the Province along with Roads 95 & 96, all Provincial Highways at the time, (and a sum of money for upkeep, all used up by now). The road, used during the winter months or until the water level in the village of Marysville is considered high enough for the ferry to operate safely, needs widening, curve build up and cycle paths for island residents who cycle all winter, The road is dangerous at the best of times, but extremely so for cyclists particularly as they travel to work and home again in the dark. The costs for the township to provide everything that is needed are prohibitive. Thus the request to the Infrastructure Initiative for some assistance. One reason stated for the denial of funding was the limitations of the grant money available for projects. But more specifically it was that the township’s rationale for why it couldn’t pay the amount of money requested itself, was not good enough, as other communities have greater funding needs and fewer resources… Does that mean that whatever extra money we ever have (wind plant) will always end up, for the most part, on the roads of Wolfe Island…. that in spite of having that extra money, inevitably taxes will have to be raised to pay first, the bills continually on the rise, and secondly for whatever the township should have, and does not,. (other than an ongoing roads program) for instance water, sewer, infrastructure, buildings, senior accommodation. etc. etc…? Frontenac County Update: Mayor Doyle and Deputy Mayor Jones attended the March 8th county budget meeting where it was finally determined that the Fairmount Home Auditorium renovation ( estimated cost $2,175,000) can move forward with the money held in reserves for several years, along with money raised ($200,000). “No new money needs to be raised from the township’s in this year’s county levy,” Doyle said adding that a resolution was passed to proceed with the project if the City of Kingston, who share the costs of running the facility, agree to approve the funds, and have also set aside funds in reserves over several years. County Staff will seek city approval before tendering the project. Doyle Noted that Budget dis-

cussions will continue at the March 20th County council meeting with 2 significant issues, one that arose under Warden Gutowski’s watch, involving the Frontenac Paramedics Service and Fairmount Home staff absentee hours. He said these hours have grown to over 30,000 a year, equal to 15 persons absent on any given day. Staff have been asked to develop strategies to reduce costs, and find ways to handle the work without people working overtime to cover the absences. The second issue will be county reserve funds, specifically several hundred thousand dollars, levied from the townships and not spent in 2012. “The money was moved to a working fund reserve, to be brought forward to the 2013 budget deliberations, to offset this years operating expenses, thereby lowering the county levies to the townships.” Doyle said. Commenting on the subject Deputy Mayor Jones said that the county bureaucracy has been allowed to amass a fortune of many millions in Reserves over the years, without approved capital plans or investment strategies. “They certainly don’t treat tax dollars like their own. In my view it’s unconscionable for the County to levy a EMC Events – Although Spring doesn’t officially arrive until March 20 tax without need, it’s just wrong.” this year, Frontenac County experienced mild temperatures and a lot of he said. sunshine this past weekend.

In Our Opinion

TV characters become the stuff of daydreams Craig Bakay Reporter

editorial@theheritageemc.ca

EMC Editorial - What is it about a sun-shiny day that sets the mind to wanderin’? For example, while taking in some rays last Saturday, my mind wandered to TV and wondering if the proverbial art school concept that ‘all art was contemporary’ will apply to TV that is a hundred years or so. In many circles, putting down TV as mindless trash (the boob tube, ring a bell?) is standard procedure, but then again, the same approach applied to Impressionism in the 1860s. Now, we see Monet, Degas, Renoir et al as geniuses whose works adorn the world’s top galleries and collections. While it’s unlikely that Two and a Half Men will ever be considered great theatre, TV has given the world some memorable characters over the years. Here’s a list of the 10 best TV characters of all time — discuss. 10 — Fred Mertz (William Frawley—I Love Lucy). The consummate character actor, Frawley cre-

ated the archetype supporting actor that all sitcoms must have. He was the perfect foil for the three other principles in the show. Say the name out loud. Kinda makes you grin just saying the name, doesn’t it? 9 — Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage—Game of Thrones). Tyrion Lannister is a key player in the intrigues surrounding possession of the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms. Despite his dwarf stature, he’s as formidable as any of the pretenders, as he manages to outwit his opponents, which include most of his family. Plus, he’s entertaining as all-get-out. 8 — Larry, Darryl and Darryl (William Sanderson, Tony Papenfuss, John Voldstad—Newhart). OK, so they’re three characters, but except the episode where they discover one of the Darryls is actually the oldest brother, they were always together. They’re still as funny on reruns as they were when the series originally aired. 7 — Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons—Big Bang Theory). The child science prodigy grown up with a string of degrees, an eidetic memory and an IQ of 187 has almost single-handedly saved the sitcom genre after years of comedic wasteland. 6 — Barney Fife (Don Knotts—

Put your best food forward

The Andy Griffith Show). C’mon, admit it, you laughed at Barney. Everybody did, except that traffic cop that pulled me over one time. Calling him Barney Fife wasn’t one of my better ideas. 5 — Tony Soprano (James Gandolfini—The Sopranos). Face it, the western world likes gangster stories. Soprano was the best godfather since Marlin Brando. 4 — Mary Ann Summers (Dawn Wells—Gilligan’s Island). Sigh. . .sigh. 3 — Norm Peterson (George Wendt—Cheers). People still greet him with “Noooorm!� when he walks into a bar. 2 — Mr. Spock (Leonard Nimoy—Star Trek TOS). Not only is Spock one of the greatest TV characters of all time, it’s a tossup whether he or Han Solo is the greatest sci-fi character of all time. (But that’s another column.) 1 — Archie Bunker (Carroll O’Connor—All in the Family). All in the Family was the most groundbreaking show in the history of TV. Archie Bunker was the star. ’Nuff said.

EMC Editorial – It isn’t always easy to maintain a healthy and balanced lifestyle. Hectic work and family lives can sometimes keep us from getting the proper nutrition and exercise needed for us to be at our best. National Nutrition Month, which is held each year during the month of March, is intended to remind us of the importance of healthy eating and its positive impacts on our health and well being. According to a Dietitians of Canada Ipsos Reid poll conducted in spring, 2012, “63% of Canadians struggle with making healthier food choices in the grocery store at least half the time they shop; more than one third struggle at least 75% of the time.� In addition, only 37 per cent of the 2,000 Canadian adults surveyed said they plan meals in advance. While the statistics above clearly show that Canadians struggle to both shop and plan for healthy meals, results of the Ipsos Reid poll also show that the majority of Canadians do attempt to make healthy food choices. Of those surveyed, 67 per cent said they prepare a grocery list before going shopping for food; 52 per cent always or very often read the nutrition label on a food item before making a purchase; and 58 per cent always or very often cook a

balanced meal for themselves or others. In an effort to further help Canadians to make healthy food choices, the Dietitians of Canada have launched the campaign, Best Food Forward: Plan Shop Cook Enjoy! This campaign features video, factsheets and tips on grocery shopping for healthy food. All these campaign materials are available online at http://www. dietitians.ca/your-health/nutritionmonth.aspx. In addition, Health Canada is also participating in National Nutrition Month by making Canadians aware of online resources geared at healthy eating, including a Healthy Eating Toolbox, www.hc-sc.gc.ca/ fn-an/nutrition/part/tb-bo/indexeng.php; the My Food Guide Servings Tracker, www.hc-sc.gc.ca/ fn-an/food-guide-aliment/tracksuivi/index-eng.php; the Eat Well campaign, www.HealthyCanadians.gc.ca/EatWell; and the Healthy Life channel, www.canadianliving.com/health/__healthy_life. We at the EMC would like to encourage local residents to explore some of these resources during National Nutrition Month and arm themselves with the knowledge and tools to make healthy food choices that will in turn improve their overall health and well being.

Places to explore and things to experience

Mark Bergin

Sweet traditions in Prince Edward County EMC Lifestyle – Prince Edward County is one of the best places in the world to explore at any time of year. Over the next few weeks, Countylicious celebrates, in its own words, “divine cuisine with a down to earth price tag.” The festivities started on March 13 and continue until April 6. “Countylicious runs twice a year to entice people to go to local restaurants and eat local food,” said Amy Wager Mayhew, event coordinator for Taste the County. “They can try things maybe they wouldn’t on a regular basis. For a fixed price of $30 or $35, patrons choose from three or four selections. There’s often a vegetarian option. They’ll have some amazing choices and there’s great shopping in Picton, Bloomfield and Wellington. It’s worth coming just for the scenery. It’s a beautiful drive through the county.” On March 23 and 24, amidst the overall Countylicious prix fixe culinary celebrations, Maple in the County celebrates Canada’s great delicacy: maple syrup. The maple syrup harvest serves as a harbinger of spring. Maple in the County creates a celebration of the first harvest of the year. If the Celts had known about maple syrup, I’m sure they would have used it to celebrate the return of light after the darkness of winter. Native Americans are generally rec-

ognized as the original people to use maple sap as a nutrient. They also used it for medicinal purposes. Some historians argue that Native Americans didn’t have the technology to produce maple syrup. However, archaeological evidence and oral traditions indicate that maple syrup was produced before any Europeans arrived in North America. First Nations people taught early colonists how to tap maple trees to access the sap. The North American Natives carved v-shaped wedges in trees to access sap. Europeans changed this method, instead boring holes, inserting spouts and hanging buckets to collect sap. Not much changed in maple syrup production until the mid-19th century, the era of the invention of the tin can. Maple syrup makers began to use large metal pans, allowing greater surface area for evaporation, replacing the kettles used for boiling sap. The world’s maple syrup all comes from the northeastern section of North America. Canada produces 80 percent of the world’s maple syrup, with the bulk of that coming from Quebec. In the United States, the largest maple syrup production comes from the state of Vermont. It takes a combination of climate and sugar maple trees native to the region to create maple syrup. In a brief period during North American spring, temperatures hover around the freezing point.

At night, the temperature drops below freezing. Sap doesn’t flow. When the temperature rises in the morning, the sap again flows. Maple syrup farmers have told me that the cog in any explanation is that even if there is a serious freeze for more than the night, sap may continue to run for a day or two. According to researchers at Cornell University, when temperatures rise above freezing, pressure develops in the tree. This pressure causes the sap to flow out of the tree through a tap hole. When temperatures fall below freezing, negative pressure (suction) develops, drawing water into the tree through the roots. This replenishes the sap in the tree, allowing it to flow again during the next warm period. Nutritionally, maple syrup is one of the healthiest sweeteners known. It contains a number of important nutrients, including manganese, zinc, calcium, magnesium, potassium and choline. Zinc is important for prostate health. Manganese is helpful in maintaining reproductive health. Zinc and manganese are both important for immune system functioning. Zinc is also an antioxidant and has been shown to decrease the development of atherosclerosis. New compounds in maple syrup are still being discovered. Recent research has found several natural enzymes and phenols and other organic compounds that have never before been known in

Some of them are produced during the boiling process, when the sap is transformed to syrup. This is the 12th year for Maple in the County, explained Mayhew. “It’s a free weekend for family members of all ages,” she said. “Visitors can

drive around the entire county and find something to do with maple syrup. It’s a great event for a day out. People can bring their kids, their grandparents and visit the sugar bushes, have pancakes and try local wine at a winery.” Continued on page 13

Sweet traditions in Prince Edward County You’ll be able to see old-style sugar maple tapping along with state of the art sugar bushes. Mayhew said some of the locations have small animals for children to pet. Nyman Farms at 292 Mowbray Road offers a sugar shack and a barn with baby lambs, chickens, pigs and baby jersey calves. Waupoos Estates Winery and Sugar bush at 3016 County Road 8 features a maple-inspired buffet. Outdoors, they have chickens and miniature goats. Weather permitting, you’ll be able to sample taffy on snow. Adults can enjoy free tastings of Maple Ice Wine at the winery. There’s a lot more than sugar bushes and maple syrup. “Along with seven sugar bushes, there are 27 other locations,” say Mayhew. “There are artists, wineries and local businesses offering something maplerelated to support the program.” My favourite alcohol-producing site on the Isle of Quinte is County Cider Company Estate Winery at 657 Bongards X Rd . County Cider’s first weekend opening of the year is during Maple in the County.

If you’ve never tried ice wine, pick up a bottle of County Cider’s Prince Edward County Ice Cider. It’s as good as or better than any ice wine on the market. On Saturday, March 23 from 5 to 10:30 p.m., you can enjoy the Sugar Shack Shindig at MacAulay Heritage Park, 35 Church Street in Picton. It’s the only event with an admission fee. Tickets must be purchased online in advance for this at www.mapleinthecounty.ca. The shindig features local food including whey-fed pork, maple beans, maple onions, vegetable stew and sourdough with maple-whipped butter. And, of course, hot apple cider. You can enjoy the food, live music and dancing. Directions: The most pleasant route is to take Bath Road west from Kingston. At its end, ride the Glenora ferry (free) to the Isle of Quinte. Another route, sometimes quicker, but lacking the beautiful scenery of the lakeshore, is to take Highway 401 or Highway 2 (Princess Street) west from Kingston. Exit and take County Road 49 south to Picton. Maps of participating sites are available on-line. For more information: www.mapleinthecounty. ca, www.countylicious.ca

Conservation Authority’s sale of land Public works managers want study questioned in zoning change application on downloaded roadways in County By Craig Bakay Reporter

EMC News — What began as a proposal to merge two small waterfront lots into one larger one turned into a debate about conservation authority land ownership at the regular South Frontenac Council meeting last week in Sydenham. During the public meeting portion of the process, Planner Lindsay Mills said an application has been submitted to change the zoning on an existing 0.44 acre waterfront parcel that is proposed to be added to an abutting waterfront lot to the north. “The parcels front on Salmon Lake Road (South Otter Lake) and the portion being added to is itself only 0.62 acres in size and contains a small cottage located 53 feet from the lake,” he said. “The portion being added has been owned by the Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority and has only recently been sold to the applicants, who also own the abutting lot. “The result of this lot addition would be a waterfront lot that is much more usable at just over one acre in size, and it would eliminate a severely undersized parcel that was never intended for residential development but was used for passive recreation and canoe launching.” He said that from a planning perspective, the merger of two very tiny lots into one larger, more usable waterfront lot is seen as a very positive move towards conformity with the standards of the Official Plan. However, the sale of conservation authority lands to private interests came under scrutiny from the public and council as well.

“I’m a little appalled that the conservation authority is selling what had been a public boat launch and water access,” said Wilma Kenny. “If the conservation authority is acquiring land for the public, then it should inform the public if it intends to sell that land.” That premise was picked up by Mayor Gary Davison. “I too have used that boat launch and was surprised to find that the conservation authority is in the real estate business,” Davison said. “I remember when the conservation authorities were first established. “One of their policies was to acquire land to provide access to land-locked lakes like Otter Lake.” Coun. Ron Vandewal questioned the Mayor’s analysis. “I don’t think it’s land-locked,” Vandewal said. “You can get there through the (Frontenac Provincial) Park.” “Not by road, you can’t,” replied Davison. “It’s only accessible by canoe.” Coincidentally, Coun. Al McPhail is also chair of the Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority and was asked for an opinion. “The parcel we sold was just being held as land and never developed as anything, including a boat launch,” McPhail said. “And we also own another piece of land nearby. “We just reacted to an inquiry and sold the parcel.” “We paid for that land and it should stay public access,” said Davison. The zoning change was approved 8-1 in a recorded vote with Davison casting the lone nay vote.

By Craig Bakay Reporter

EMC News — The four township public works managers in Frontenac County have been working together on areas of common concern, such as roadways for some time now, and have come together to ask for $10,740 to fund a ‘condition assessment’ of what they’re calling “The Frontenac Corridor.” The corridor consists of the former provincial highways 38, 506, 509, 95 and 96 that were downloaded to the individual townships during the amalgamation process in 1999. “The public works managers have termed this network of downloaded provincial highways as the Frontenac Corridor, recognizing that there are benefits to managing this corridor as one asset to ensure consistent standards and to position ourselves in a favourable position for funding opportunities,” said South Frontenac Public Works Manager Mark Segsworth at South Frontenac Council’s regular meeting last week in Sydenham. “We stepped back from the report and looked at what we all have in common and that’s downloaded provincial highways. “With the exception of Highway 7, all other roads in Frontenac County are township roads, but some serve more as a regional network.” Segsworth said that, on a map, the roads in question don’t look any different than provincial highways. “Proposals were solicited from three firms to undertake a condition assessment of this corridor, as well as to develop a longer term

capital plan which will form part of a comprehensive 10-year asset management plan for the Frontenac Corridor,” he said. The winning bid was from D. M. Wills Associates Ltd. at $10,740. The two other bids were $34,480 (Golder Associates) and $49,965 (McIntosh Perry). In a letter to County Council requesting a resolution to fund the project, CAO Wayne Orr said: “As part of the Strategic Plan, Council committed to strengthening communication and formal collaboration with the County and other neighbours/partners to streamline operations, eliminate duplication and promote economic development. “Council is well aware of the challenges South Frontenac has in meeting infrastructure needs in terms of roads, associated structures and solid waste facilities. “It should be no surprise that the other Townships in the County, along with all of Eastern Ontario, share the same concerns.” “We’re doing a budget on Friday and I’m certainly going to be steering debate towards this proposal,” said Mayor Gary Davison. “I’ll also be telling County staff that they will have no need to have roads expertise because we’re (the townships) there to provide that for them. “What about what we already pay for Road 38?” asked Coun. Ron Vandewal. “That hasn’t been addressed yet,” said Segsworth. “But we won’t be paying any more than our percentage under municipal cooperation.” “This is the first time we’ll be getting information on the overall costs of these roads,” said Coun. Al McPhail. “I think it’s money well spent.”

not needed. This 1937 Pontiac also has a steel roof. Until the mid-1930s, all closed cars had a “fabric insert� roof because presses were not yet large enough to stamp out an entire steel roof. The old fabric insert roofs often leaked, and many motorists carried along a can of sealant. When Mr. Burgess arrived in Canada in 1949, he bought a new Ford with the flathead V8 engine. The car ran fine except in hot weather when it suffered vapour lock. An ice pack on top of the carburetor and a ten-minute wait solved the problem. “Those flathead engines,� he recalls, “gave pranksters a lot of fun, especially when they placed a dead fish between the cylinder banks.� I’m always looking for more stories.

EMC Lifestyle – Emerson said there was something wrong with my head. He thought it probably had something to do with the bump I got when I fell out of a tree and landed hard on the ground. My sister Audrey said to pay him no heed. She said I was right as rain, which certainly eased my mind. But Emerson said anyone who took to animals that weren’t quite right had to have a screw loose. There was no doubt I seemed to be especially fond of any farm animal that came into the world a bit different from the ordinary. Emerson pointed to my pet chicken. I called her Biddy. Now, what made Biddy very different from the flock was she didn’t have a feather on her body! She had a sort of cuff of down around her neck, but that was it as far as feathers were concerned. Her body was a soft pink, and smooth as a china plate, and I loved her with all my heart. Biddy and I spent hours together. When the summer sun was hot, she sat on my knee in the old wood swing in the grape arbour, as I tried to keep her out of the sun, because one day her skin turned as red as a beet. As we rocked in the swing, Biddy would fall sound asleep in minutes. I thought she was beautiful. Emerson said she was a freak! And then there was Lambie. She was as black as ink, and in a flock as white as the driven snow, was an immediate outcast. I adopted Lambie immediately. As well as being black when she was born, Father doubted she would see morning... she was tiny and had trouble breathing. After sleeping in the house by the Findlay Oval in a cardboard box, and being fed by me from a doll’s bottle, she thrived. She followed me everywhere, and eventually had to be kept in the barn after Mother announced there would be no more sheep in the house! Then there was old Harry with the Heaves, as he was called. Harry was a dark brown horse with a questionable ancestry. He was very old, and had what we called a sway-back. Emerson said you could lay a bale of hay in the middle of his back. He wasn’t much good for working, but like all the other misfits that came into being on the farm, I loved old Harry with the Heaves with a deep passion. With the least exertion Old Harry would heave like he was taking his last breath. So he was never put to work. He mainly sought a cool place 53 Westport Rd.

standing perfectly still, and in the winter stayed in the warmth of the barn. Sometimes I would hitch him up to the cutter, and take a few cuts around the barnyard, but they were few indeed. Because within minutes, he was heaving like his time had come. And I would unhitch him, use the currycomb on him, make sure he had water to drink, and a patch of hay to chew on, and hug his neck and tell him how much I loved him. I was sure he knew what I was saying. Now, a horse with the heaves isn’t much good to a farmer. And I dreaded the day Father would say Harry’s time had come. I decided I had to have a talk with Father. I waited for just the right time. As he did every night before he went to bed, he went to the barns to check on the animals. Never, do I ever remember him not putting on his boots and heavy coat and heading out to the barns before bedtime. One night I went with him. Of course, Old Harry with the Heaves was in his stall with his head almost to the floor. I asked Father what was going to happen to my favourite horse when he could no longer even walk around the barnyard. Father just said, “We’ll worry about that when the time comes,â€? which put my mind at ease for the moment. And every night I added Old Harry to my prayers...asking that This 1937 Pontiac sedan appeared in a sales brochure. “his timeâ€? be a long way off. The winter was severe that year. Harry was kept in the barn almost every day. The frosty air would cause him to heave even if he wasn’t walking around the barnyard. Without fail, as soon as I came home from school and got into my ‘play clothes,’ I would head for the Est: 1978 barn to see Harry. Then came the day when Harry was Miele, Dyson, Electrolux & more‌ gone. I thought perhaps Father had Lowest prices in Canada let him out for some air but he was FREE SHIPPING* nowhere to be seen. I was frantic and ran from building to building looking R0011971617 for Father. He was cleaning out the sheep stable, and it looked like he knew exactly why I was there. “Where is he?â€? Father put the fork down and rubbed the top of my head which immediately started me into the tears. All he said was “Harry has gone to a better place.â€? When I was very young I thought the animals I loved would live forever. It took me a long time to realize you didn’t raise farm animals for pets. Harry, like Biddy and Lambie, had gone to a “better place.â€?

EMC Lifestyle - A letter arrived recently from G. Burgess of Almonte, Ontario: “As a teenager in postwar Britain, I vividly remember a six cylinder Pontiac 4-door sedan imported into Britain around 1936. It was an export model made in Canada and it was right hand drive. To us natives, to whom a car was only for affluent people, it was monstrous! “We were used to little tin boxes on four wheels, and some had only three (BSA, Morgan). Most striking about the Pontiac besides its size was an amber plastic Indian chief hood ornament that was illuminated, a real novelty in those conservative days. “I visited Britain in 1960 and learned that this car had been renovated by reboring the cylinders after 520,000 miles, new brake cylinders, replacement clutch

and upholstery, and a new paint job in the same light green, a relative rarity as most cars in those days had ‘any colour you wanted as long as it was black.’ During the war, this car was able to get extra petrol coupons as it served as a wedding vehicle and funeral party conveyance. Regrettably, I do not have a photo of this car.� I found the photo you see here of a 1937 Pontiac Deluxe touring sedan as it appeared in the sales brochure of that year. Mr. Burgess remembered seeing the Pontiac in Britain “around 1936.� Production of the 1937 Pontiacs began in Oshawa in October of 1936, and the car you see here could be identical to the one he saw. This 1937 Pontiac has a built-in trunk, and you paid extra for that because many cars in 1937 had a “slope back� with very little room for a trunk. Five years before this car was built, every car had a detachable trunk (if it had one at all) and it sat on a metal shelf at the rear of the car that could be folded up when the trunk was

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The policy of three severances per property in South Frontenac may come in for some review, following Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s endorsement of a growth study at its regular meeting last week in Sydenham. The Feb. 26, 2013 study, by MHBC Planning, Urban Design and Landscape Architecture, was conducted to justify the need for residential development in the rural areas of the Township and not to direct all development solely to the settlement areas, said Planner Lindsay Mills in a report to Council. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The report appeared to be very well received by Committee of the Whole but there were three areas where clarification was needed,â&#x20AC;? Mills said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These were: â&#x20AC;˘There should be additional comment and projections to account for the overly high estimate of people willing to develop their land â&#x20AC;˘There should be some acknowledgement that there are limitations to full development (i.e. wetlands, aggregate areas, other)

â&#x20AC;˘There should be some comment as to whether the model supports more than three severances as the Official Plan currently states.â&#x20AC;? There are currently 13 settlement Areas recognized in South Frontenac, including Battersea, Bellrock, Harrowsmith, Hartington, Inverary, Perth Road, Petworth, Railton, Spaffordton, Sunbury, Sydenham, Verona and Wilmer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;None of the settlement areas within the Township contain municipal sewage services and Sydenham is the only one that provides municipal water services,â&#x20AC;? the report said. The report concludes that there could potentially be 4,778 additional rural lots created in the Township, 4,551 from lots that have not been severed and 227 lots that can be created from lots already severed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These supply values also assume that all properties will be severed to their full potential,â&#x20AC;? the report said, pointing out that some land owners will not be interested in severing their lands and others will be limited by minimum separation distances,

wetlands, aggregate extraction areas, or waste disposal sites. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ A fundraiser for former South Frontenac employee and Guelph University student Drew Cumpson has been scheduled for May 4 at 7 p.m. at Frontenac Community Arena. The evening will feature music by Bauder Road, Killing Time and Still Standing, a silent auction and late night buffet. Tickets are $20 per person (children under 16 free) and are available at local businesses or by contacting Heather Cumpson at 613583-6508, heather.cumpson@gmail.com. They will also be looking for donations for the silent auction. Cumpson was injured in a body surfing accident May 10, 2011 on a beach in Peru, on the final day of a humanitarian program he and fellow students had been participating in. He was hit by a massive wave and swept into rocks where he sustained a spinal cord injury. Those wishing to donate via cheque can do so by making it out to Drew Cumpson in Trust and mailing it to Drew Cumpson, St. Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s of the Lake, Room 341, 340 Union Street, Kingston ON, K7L 5A2.

20 The Frontenac EMC - Thursday, March 14, 2013

Our English language is full of Irish smatterings. A book called Green English outlines how Irish has infiltrated the language. For example, the word “galore” hails from the Irish “go leor”, meaning enough or plenty. As for the world of science, who but the Irish could transform the potato? The inventor of flavoured potato chips was an Irishman named Joseph Murphy, who, in 1954, was the first person to flavour the snack food. He added cheese and onion flavouring. He made a fortune when he sold his seasoning technology to an American company. The rest is atherosclerotic history. How about soda water? Another Irish invention courtesy of Robert Percival, a professor at Trinity College in Dublin. John Phillip Holland from County Clare developed the first submarine used by the US Navy in 1900. Irish scientist John Joly created the process for creating colour photographs from a single plate image in 1894. A County Down bicycle repair lad named Harry Ferguson invented the modern tractor. Indeed, he’s the Ferguson from Massey Ferguson. Irishman Robert Boyle developed the foundations of modern chemistry. Close to home, there’s the Rideau Canal, built on the backs of the Irish, Scottish and French. Any business that wants to paint itself Irish uses any number of names associated with Ireland. Granted, the Toucan, a great Irish pub, is an exRegardless of nationality, everyone gets in the Irish mood on March 17, ception to that rule. Continued on page 21

We Captured the Moment and Now you can Keep the Memory!

M. Cohan. There’s a statue honoring him in Times Square at the corner of Broadway and 46th. He was a playwright, composer, actor, singer, dancer and producer who had a huge impact on theatre. He’s considered the father of the American musical comedy. A Tin Pan Alley songwriter, one of his most famous tunes is Give My Regards to Broadway. As for writers, Irish culture offers the quirkiest of the quirky, for example, Anne McCaffrey, James Joyce, Oscar Wilde, Brendan Behan, Lady Gregory, George Bernard Show, Frank McCourt, William Butler Yeats, Mary Louise Fitzpatrick and Jonathan Swift. Irish writers won the Nobel Prize for Literature on three occasions in the 20th century. Musically, how about the likes of Rory Gallagher, Shane MacGowan, Tommy Makem and the Clancy Brothers, Eithne Ní Bhraonáin (know by the phoneticized version, Enya Brennan, or simply Enya), Imelda May, U2, Sinead O’Connor, Van Morrison and the Chieftains. Then there’s Irish humour, which brings to mind one of my favourite Irish jokes, told by a friend from Swords, north of Dublin: Question: How do you spell pretentious in Irish? Answer: U2. Maybe you have to be Irish to appreciate that one. Let’s sum it up with a phrase to describe someone who shows off or thinks too highly of him/herself. That person would be called a Mickey Dazzle. “Well look at hisself. Isn’t he the real Mickey Dazzle!” Many Irish have mixed feelings about U2, the band that has been accused of tax avoidance at home in Ireland. As their manager puts it, “Like any other business, U2 operates in a tax-efficient manner.” Which is what the Irish might lessthan-affectionately call tripe from a tosser. My favourite Irish metaphor, at least in terms of what can be printed in a newspaper, came from my grandmother: “You’re runnin’ around like a blue-tail fly on a horse’s arse.” Pretty descriptive. Easy to understand. Not much room for confusion regarding the intended meaning.

EMC Lifestyle – You’ve probably seen the headline words “Erin Go Bragh” hanging in a pub somewhere in your travels. It’s the anglicized version of the Irish Éirinn go Brách. The English spelling is meaningless. The Irish Gaelic phrase Éirinn go Brách roughly means “Ireland Forever”. The term Gaelic is a vague descriptor. Irish is one of several forms of Gaelic. Others include Welsh, Scottish, Manx, Breton and Cornish. A person speaking Irish won’t understand a person speaking Welsh any more than a person speaking English would understand someone speaking Spanish. Even in Ireland there are several distinct dialects that are far more divergent than the English spoken by a person from Mississippi and one from Australia. March 17 is a day to celebrate the Irish and Irishness. There are many ways to do this. New York City drapes itself in green. Seriously. Even the solid traffic line in the middle of the pavement on Fifth Avenue is painted green for the day. The city’s St. Patrick’s Day parade, which starts at 11 a.m. and doesn’t finish until 4:30 or 5 p.m., draws hundreds of thousands of visitors. Many schools close (officially or otherwise), so students can either participate or watch. What exactly are we thankful for in our celebrations? Look at some of the Irish influences in the arts and cultural world. Hollywood and Broadway are full of them. Think of Liam Neeson, Saoirse Ronan and Colin Farrell. Movies like The Commitments, Michael Collins and the Boys and Girl from County Clare come to mind. Actors not born in Ireland but of Irish descent include Anne Hathaway, Rooney Mara, Jennifer Connelly, George Clooney, Matthew McConaughey, Bing Crosby, Jackie Gleason, Marlon Brando and James Earl Jones, to name a few. The last name on that list may make you raise your eyebrows, but the wonderful actor’s background is African, Irish and Native American. One of the most significant entertainers of Irish heritage was George

‘Tis Eire apparent (to steal from Shakespeare) that the phrase Tír na nÓg is used around the world for restaurants, pubs, Irish dance schools and just about anything else that wants to take on an aura of Ireland. That’s the proper spelling, although it is sometimes misspelled Tir Nan Og. The phrase means “land of the young” or “land of youth”. Tír na nÓg is an Otherworld in Irish mythological beliefs. The only way to reach it is through a challenging journey or by invitation from the fairies. Speaking of pubs, as for the racist stereotype of the Irish drunk, according to World Health Organization data (2002 and 2004), in general, those in the European Union do consume more alcohol than we do in North America. But Ireland lags behind even the Czech Republic and Hungary in alcohol consumption, and there are more abstainers

in Ireland than in many other countries, including the likes of Austria, England, France, Sweden and Norway. In alcohol-related mortality, Ireland is tied with Scotland. Locally, if you want to celebrate March 17 in true Irish style, on March 16 at 8 p.m., there’s an Irish Céilí at École Cathedrale. The céilí (pronounced kay-lee) is a celebration of Irish social dance. It’s non-competitive and no partner is required to participate. All ages are welcome. On March 17 at 2 p.m., there’s a Siamsa (pronounced SHEEM-suh) upstairs at the Kingston Brew Pub. A literal translation of siamsa means entertainment or amusement in English. But its working definition refers to a family-friendly music social where people come together for music, poetry, dancing and storytelling. So I wish you all “Sláinte!” (pronounced SLAHN-chuh. It’s used as “cheers”, but its English translation means “health”) for March 17.

Students minds to be put to the test in local Brain Bee kcoughlar@perfprint.ca

EMC Events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual Brain Bee is just weeks away, and as things currently stand itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shaping up to be the best competition to date. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were able to get into quite a few schools and at the moment weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re expecting close to 30 students at the event,â&#x20AC;? explains event co-ordinator Kasey Hemington. Those students are currently busy memorizing a 50-page study guide with facts about the brain, and on March 30 their knowledge of neuroscience and skills at patient diagnosis and neuroanatomy will be tested in what Hemington describes as a spelling bee style neuroscience competition. Open to students in grades 9-12, the 2013 Kingston Brain Bee will challenge students to answer questions pertaining to everything from the anatomy of the brain; brain development; senses and perception; learning, memory and language; movement; sleep; stress; aging; diseases and disorders; research; and treatment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really excited to see the competition. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re excited to see how these students have studied, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve prepared some really hard questions in the hopes that as the competition progresses the questions will get harder and harderâ&#x20AC;Ś[and] that some really bright students will be out there and the competition will get really intense and we can see how much they really know about

the brain,â&#x20AC;? said event co-ordinator Angelina Paolozza. Hemington said the event, which is sponsored by the Society for Neuroscience, hopes to expose students to the world of neuroscience and perhaps cultivate interest in this scientific field. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They figure if they get high school students excited about neuroscience early they might go on to continue to study it in university and then do neuroscience research,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;High school is usually Chemistry, Physics and Biology, so students might not be exposed to the fact that there are more specialized sciences that they might be interested in further so thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a danger of them not moving on in sciences when they might be interested in it.â&#x20AC;? In areas like Hamilton, the Brain Bee has been hugely popular. In fact, Paolozza noted that at a pre-test is held in order to narrow the field of competitors to a manageable group size. The Centre for Neuroscience Studies at Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, is hoping to establish that same level of interest in the Kingston Brain Bee. Its efforts this year appear to be working. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been in contact with pretty much all of the students that have already signed, and a lot of them have been studying and are really excited about it, which is awesome,â&#x20AC;? said event co-ordinator Anastasia Christopher. The competition on March 30 will be held in Memorial Hall at City Hall, and organizers are hopeful that a selection of the Kingston community will also attend the event.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it would be really interesting for people from the general public just to come out and see what it is all about because they would learn a lot about themselves, a lot about other people and a lot about how the brain works and how it helps them function every day,â&#x20AC;? Christopher said. Paolozza agreed, adding, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good opportunity for the audience to learn about the brainâ&#x20AC;ŚNeuroscience is a very complicated topic, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good way for us to communicate neuroscience in a more understandable way to the community.â&#x20AC;? For those competing on stage, cash prizes of $500, $300 and $150 will be awarded to the top three finishers respectively. The regional winner will also advance to the national competition in Hamilton on June 1. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to win the nationalsâ&#x20AC;Ś so what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve also done is weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve recruited everyone in the neuroscience graduate program and we are going to have the winner of the Kingston Brain Bee come in here and learn about neuroscience and ask us questions. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really going to train that student up,â&#x20AC;? Paolozza said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never been trained up like theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be trained up this time, so we hope this time that they will do really well.â&#x20AC;? If that Kingston representative were to win the national competition, they would be awarded $1,500 and an all-expense-paid trip to the international competition in Austria, where they will compete against students from over 30 countries for the

    

top prize of $3,000. In order to get there, said student will first have to best the local competition. Additional information on the Kingston Brain Bee can be found at www.queensu.ca/neuroscience/

apps/brainbee2013/. For those interested, there is still time to register for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s competition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they really get in there and start reading they can definitely still participate,â&#x20AC;? Paolozza said. R0011969580

HOROSCOPES

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 – Sorting through feelings may not come easy to you, Aries. At some point it becomes necessary to voice your opinions and you may need to show a vulnerable side. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 – Taurus, a few complications could arise this week and how you react to them will be telling of how the rest of the month may proceed. Think about this before you act. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 – Gemini, this week is likely to be a wash because there is something that came up that has the potential to dominate all of your time for the next several days. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 – Cancer, though you may be anxious to help a friend out, you need to seriously consider whether you have the time to spare at this point in time. Putting yourself first is priority. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 – Leo, someone is going to open up to you emotionally and you may get caught off guard by the level of intimacy. This could turn out to be the start of a long-lasting friendship. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 – Virgo, let a particular situation cool down instead of adding extra fuel to the fire. Step away from a heated discussion if you feel like things may get out of control. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 –Libra, your heart may beat a little faster this week because of the excitement involved in meeting someone that has been on your mind. Be patient. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 – Scorpio, continue to discuss a financial situation with your significant other. Even if the discussion grows tiresome, talking it out is the best way to resolve the issue. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 – Sagittarius, you have an uncanny way of turning something that would normally be disastrous into enjoyable chaos. Think about a side career in party planning. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 – Capricorn, big changes are in store for your family and there are nerves to accompany these changes. Set aside a day this week where you can have peace, quiet and time to reflect. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 – Aquarius, your words are being heard but their meaning is simply not sinking in. Try rephrasing or approach the situation from another direction. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 – Pisces, your social schedule is jam-packed and you wouldn’t have it any other way. There may be a pocket of time for more fun.
