EMC Events – As part of the Earth Day assembly last week at Elginburg Public School, staff and students took time out to honour three of their own who excelled at the annual Royal Canadian Legion Remembrance Day Poster Contest last fall. After taking first place in the zone competition, Grade 3 student Ken Babcock went on to place third in all of Ontario. Grade 4 student Autumn Lawrence and Grade 3 student Emily Coulas each took second in the zone competition. Sydenham Legion Branch 496 Youth Education Chair Wendy Davis said there were 130 posters submitted from Sydenham area public and high schools. Photo/Craig Bakay

QR codes, free wifi at beach coming to Sharbot Lake By Craig Bakay Reporter

EMC News – Central Frontenac Township is looking to become more high tech and it looks like Sharbot Lake will be the first recipient of life in the 21st century. As part of a report from the Economic Development Committee, Mayor Janet Gutowski told council at its regular meeting last week in Sharbot Lake that the committee was recommending the use of QR codes around the township to highlight points of interest. A QR code is the trademark for Quick Response Code, which was

first designed for the automotive industry in Japan. It consists of a two-dimensional matrix that can be read by scanners similar to the barcodes on products at retail outlets only with faster readability and significantly greater storage capacity than standard UPC barcodes. Using a camera, or smartphone and easily obtainable apps, a user can scan the code and instantly access whatever information the placers of the QRC want to present. Gutowski said the technology is a natural for tourist information and suggested a good starting point would be the Sharbot Lake Historical Walking Tour. Tickets

“Signs are expensive,” Gutowski said. “These QRC aren’t and can be used by all sorts of devices such as smart phones and tablets. “We’ve been looking for inexpensive ways to highlight our points of interest and thought we’d start with the Sharbot Lake walking tour.” Gutowski said the codes also have other advantages besides being relatively inexpensive to produce and the volume of information they can provide. “They are very environmentally responsible,” she said. “They don’t produce pamphlets that often end up as litter on the side of

the road. “And they appeal to a different demographic that we’re trying to attract.” Council reaction ran the gamut from mildly interested to enthusiastic support. “I support the mayor’s proposal,” said Coun. Norm Guntensperger, who is also a public school teacher. “The younger people who are travelling have these devices and certainly know how to use them.” Coun. Tom Dewey, council’s representative on the Eastern Ontario Trails Alliance, said the plan meshes well with some of the

trails initiatives. “The EOTA is now selling ads along its trails and can put QR codes on them as well,” he said. Further on in her report, Gutowski said that, in the high tech theme, North Frontenac Telephone is prepared to continue a pilot project which began last summer to provide wifi coverage at the beach in Sharbot Lake. “There will be free wifi at the beach this summer which potentially could be available through the winter, if not continuously, at least at events like the snow drags and Central Frontenac Heritage Festival,” Gutowski said.

Loughborough students get green with a new outdoor classroom By Hollie Pratt-Campbell hpratt-campbell@theemc.ca

EMC News - Students at Loughborough Public School did their best to â&#x20AC;&#x153;get greenâ&#x20AC;? over the month of April, and they have a lot to show for it. The centrepiece of the kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; environmental efforts, a new outdoor classroom, was made possible by teacher candidate Amanda Morgan, who received a $500 Johnny Biosphere grant to put toward environmental education. After spending a week teaching environmental lessons to all Loughborough students in Grades 5-8, Morgan had the children apply what they had learned by making cushions depicting â&#x20AC;&#x153;greenâ&#x20AC;? tips and facts, and draw-

ing a mural emphasizing the connectedness found in nature on classroomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s floor. Soon, they had transformed the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outdoor pavilion into a comfy, inviting space. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a huge community cooperation,â&#x20AC;? Morgan says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The kids really liked it. I found that some kids might have been disengaged when I was teaching the lesson, but when they got out to actually do the mural they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to stop. It was very interactive and engaging and handson.â&#x20AC;? She remarks that it feels amazing to see the project through to completion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It took so long for it to be done with the weather not working out at all, so when it was finally done

it was a huge relief,â&#x20AC;? Morgan says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But it was also something that the kids had accomplished that I could facilitate. It was more about the kids and them as a school creating something that they can look back on.â&#x20AC;? Morgan notes that it is extremely important to engage children in environmental lessons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think this day in age, everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so consumed with technology and they just think that the earth can fix itself,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People need to realize thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the case. The students need to have environmental messages and lessons going on. A lot of it you can integrate it into the science curriculum, but a lot the time I find itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forgotten and it needs to be re-integrated.â&#x20AC;? The outdoor classroom fits in nicely with

Loughboroughâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s organized efforts to help the environment. Principal Helen Peterson explains that during the month of April, the entire school focused on the many ways students can engage in green activities, such as conserving water, turning off lights and eating foods with no packaging. Students who took action were recognized on a big bulletin board in the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s front hall, and during morning announcements. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The kids were very, very enthusiastic,â&#x20AC;? Peterson says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done a really, really nice job of all of the projects that are related to the outdoor classroom, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been very good too about working on the litterless lunches, turning off lights [etc.]â&#x20AC;? Some of the students even took things a step further, and gave their principal some advice on

how she can better help the environment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A couple weeks ago, one of my Grade 1 classes wrote a letter to me suggesting that we turn off the lights,â&#x20AC;? Peterson says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And so we turned off the lights in the hall as a direct result of the Grade 1 students writing the letter to express their concern about the use of energy.â&#x20AC;? She is confident that the outdoor classroom will play a role in allowing this spirit to continue at Loughborough. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping that teachers will take their kids out there and teach their kids out there,â&#x20AC;? Peterson says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got picnic tables to work on and cushions to sit on and of course itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shady because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a covered gazebo. It should be a really nice place for students to go out and do various kinds of work in the outdoors.â&#x20AC;?

Fate of Parham Library still in doubt with no concrete solutions in view Reporter

EMC News – Where, or even if, there will be a library in Parham was a question without an answer following the regular meeting of Central Frontenac Council last week in Sharbot Lake. The Kingston-Frontenac Library Board operates four branches in Central Frontenac Township (Arden, Mountain Grove, Sharbot Lake and Parham) with the township providing and/or picking up the tab for the building. The Parham Branch has been operating in a portable at Hinchinbrooke Public School, but as of July 1 this year the school will cease operations leaving the library operation in limbo. Over the past few months, council has debated its options with no clear course. “If they close it down for two or three years, we’ll never see it again,” said Coun. Bill Snyder, of the two representatives for (Hinchinbrooke) District 4. “It’s closing down in June, there’s no money in the budget for it and we’re going around in circles.” “I don’t know where we left it but there hasn’t been much progress,” said Coun. John Purdon, who also sits on the Library Board. “I know the board would like three months notice.” Mayor Janet Gutowski suggested proposing to the Library Board that the six hours the Parham branch currently operates be allocated to the other three Central Frontenac branches until such

time as a suitable facility in Parham could be found. Snyder reiterated his concern that that would contribute to a permanent loss of a library facility for Parham. “I don’t necessarily share that same view,” Gutowski said. “It may be gone for awhile but if we end up buying the school building for a community centre, then I’m sure this council can lobby the Library Board for a spot in that building.” Gutowski said that Central Frontenac staff has tried to talk with Limestone District School Board staff to see if some interim solution could be found at the current location but so far has been unsuccessful. Coun. Norm Guntensperger suggested another building in Parham might be used on a temporary basis. “Contact Joe and Marg (one of the two convenience stores in Parham), they have a fair size building there,” said Guntensperger. “And there’s the EMC Events – We’re not really sure if this qualifies as an Earth Day activity but a South Frontenac road crew Canada Post building. “I think we need to have staff look was out cleaning up the dirt from the side of the road along Road 38 in Verona on April 22. Photo/Craig Bakay at what buildings are there.” “Let’s put an ad in the paper and see if anybody’s interested,” said Snyder. Purdon said the Library Board requires 800 square feet available six hours a week with washrooms and accessibility. “The board also has a facilities manager who will want to make sure the floor is strong enough to hold the books,” Purdon said. In the end, council opted for the newspaper ad to see if anyone was interested in hosting the library.

Loughborough Challenge students combine talents and passions to try and change the world By Hollie Pratt-Campbell hpratt-campbell@theemc.ca

EMC News - Often, the best way to get a message across is to entertain people. This fact is not lost on students in the Grade 7-8 Challenge program at Loughborough Public School, many of whom have mastered the art of finding creative ways to raise awareness of issues they are passionate about. Aimee Shields and Yasmina Lawrence-Montag both used their strengths in the arts to address social justice issues during this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Challenge for Change exhibition. Aimee wrote and directed a play about the problem of homophobia in schools. In the play, a group of friends starts bullying classmates who are part of a gay/straight alliance club. The situation escalates until one student gets hurt, and as a result the bullies are influenced to change their ways. The play, called The Misfits, was performed three times for students at Loughborough. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I chose the issue of homophobia because one of my near and dear friends recently came out, and I was worried because I know generally homosexuals get bullied,â&#x20AC;? Aimee says. The choice to approach the topic by writing a play was an easy one. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love acting,â&#x20AC;? she notes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been acting since I was three, so I thought this would be a good form to address this issue.â&#x20AC;? Yasmina chose to address the topics of child abuse, child labour and child exploitation by writing a book of poetry and stories. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know [these problems] exist,

but we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t address them as much as we would something like bullying,â&#x20AC;? Yasmina said. Many of the pieces in the book are inspired by people Yasmina is close to in real life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought of [the topic] because I have five siblings - four brothers and one sister,â&#x20AC;? she explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like thinking about how my siblings could undergo something that [kids who are abused and exploited] would go through.â&#x20AC;? As one who is skilled at and passionate about writing, Yasmina knew the book was the best way to get her message across. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love to write,â&#x20AC;? she remarked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m able to engage myself in this information that way maybe others could [become engaged] as well.â&#x20AC;? Both girls agreed that art is an excellent way to address social justice issues â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or any issue, for that matter â&#x20AC;&#x201C; because people usually respond well to it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s different from just standing up in front of a class and giving a lecture, because at one point or another people are going to zone out and not listen to you,â&#x20AC;? Aimee said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But if you show them a dance or something theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never seen before, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to ask questions and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;oh, I never thought of it that way before.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Teacher Alan Macdonald noted that he is extremely proud of his students for combining their talents and passions to try and instigate change. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m proud of all the students,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so much diversity in their projects, and the way that they personalized the assignmentâ&#x20AC;Ś made

the projects less of an assignment and more of a quest, if you will, to change the world.â&#x20AC;? Macdonald explained that these projects allow the students to develop

confidence, creative thinking, leadership skills and innovation - all of which are vital components of a modern education because they will allow students to address problems of the

future we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even imagine today. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to teach them innovative thinking, and I think the arts are one of the strongest conduits for that kind of education,â&#x20AC;? Macdonald said.

In Our Opinion

Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hope Dad doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t screw up the This is your hometown big day for Meg and Sid Craig Bakay Reporter

editorial@theheritageemc.ca

EMC Editorial - By the way, if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see me out and about at events May 4, I have a good reason. My darling daughter, Meggie, is getting married (to Sid) here in Sharbot Lake that day and it looks like Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have my hands full. Now, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never really been involved in planning a wedding before. At my own wedding almost 30 years ago, I was more or less relegated to doing what I was told to do, which was basically to shut up and be there on time. So be it. Not much has changed for darling daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nuptials, but I have been given several assignments (booking the beach, the hall, dinner, the band, etc.), which really hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been that big a burden other than trying to figure out how to pay for it all. But I only have the one daughter and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d kinda like to do it right. (I have a son too, but it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look like heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in any

rush to revoke his eligible bachelorhood status anytime soon, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another story.) It really does seem like only yesterday when Dr. Timchak handed this little blonde bundle to me at St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital in Saskatoon. I remember vividly Meggie looking up at me, smiling and cuddling into my chest before drifting off to sleep. Now, nobody ever remembers being a baby but nobodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to convince me that her first thoughts werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t â&#x20AC;&#x153;oh, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re my daddy, cool.â&#x20AC;? Not that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ever called me â&#x20AC;&#x153;daddy.â&#x20AC;? Not once, ever. No, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always been â&#x20AC;&#x153;dadâ&#x20AC;? or as she got older, the ubiquitous â&#x20AC;&#x153;da-aad.â&#x20AC;? Strangely enough, I was adamant that she was going to be â&#x20AC;&#x153;Megâ&#x20AC;? after my mother and not â&#x20AC;&#x153;Meggie.â&#x20AC;? But for some reason, right then and there I said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hi Meggieâ&#x20AC;? and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been Meggie ever since. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funny the relationship you go through with your daughter. When theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re little, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re their knight in shinning armour, incapable of failure and the apple of their eye. Meg and I were more often than not paired

together, and she especially loved being taken out to dinner by Dad, usually at Red Lobster. Man, could she eat a lot of shrimp in one sitting. Later on, dads seem to go from godlike status to being the dumbest critter on the planet, usually overnight. But you know what, daughters come back. Maybe dads donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t regain that infallibility they once had with their girls, but there have been times in the past few years with my daughter I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t trade for anything. And I even approve of Sid, my sonin-law to be. For one thing, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot smarter than I figured sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d end up with. And they do seem to be in love, not that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m any great expert on that. But back to the wedding. Now, I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to feed the entire village but in keeping with weddings here the past couple of summers, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like everybody in town to know theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re welcome at the party/dance after dinner. Jim MacPherson, Gary Giller and the boys will be the house band and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve invited damn near every musician in the north country to come jam, so if you hear the music coming out of Oso Hall after 7 p.m. or so, come on in.

All about the craft Hollie Pratt-Campbell Reporter

@hollieprattcamp

EMC Editorial - They say you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t teach an old dog new tricks, but what about a tired, working mother of a one-year-old? Is there any hope for her? Because I obviously have so much time on my hands, I decided to test this theory out. It all began a few months ago, when I saw instructions on how to make a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a-frame tent on the blog A Beautiful Mess, and became obsessed with the idea of making one for Summer for her birthday. I imagined it being like a fort for her â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a place she could go to read, hold tea parties for her stuffed animals, or even nap. In a previous column, I described my failure live up to my dream of being a â&#x20AC;&#x153;DIY momâ&#x20AC;?, and how this was just something I would need to accept. The truth is, I still carry a torch for DIY mom status, and if I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t achieve it by cooking, blending, freezing and re-heating batches of pears and sweet potatoes on a daily basis, maybe I can get my craft on every once in a while and satisfy the need that way. So off I went to Home Depot and Fabricland to acquire the necessary supplies:

seven pieces of wood and two enormous sheets of fabric. I realized as soon as I lay eyes on these materials that I would require assistance beyond simply borrowing my dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drill and my grandmaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sewing machine. In reality, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a clue how to work either of these things, and would require instruction. I told my dad that it would probably take us a few hours to put the frame together, so he set aside an entire Saturday afternoon for the task. It ended up taking about 15 minutes. All we had to do was drill two holes each in four pieces of wood. We were then able to assemble the tent by simply running the three cylindrical pieces, which made up the top and two bottom sides, through the holes in the four rectangular pieces, which formed the front and back a-frames. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have been more thrilled. This whole do-it-yourself thing was a cinch. Then came the sewing. The pattern and instructions provided on the website were all Greek to me, but I thought: how hard can it possibly be when the frame part went so well? I enlisted the help of my grandma, and without her the fabric portion of the tent probably would have resembled a ratâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nest of thread and lacy floral print. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize, for example, that you need to measure and pin the fabric extensively before you can sew it, and the process of setting up the thread in the sewing machine is still kind of lost on me. I also lacked the common sense

to bring the frame to my grandmaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house so we could make sure we got the size exactly right. Thankfully, grandma is still sharp as a tack at the age of 85, and was able to guide my clueless self through the process of producing a very pretty cover for the tent. Unfortunately, it ended up being a tad too big for the frame, making the tent look somewhat droopy. I think grandma might have anticipated this â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a shame you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think to bring the frame,â&#x20AC;? she said a number of times during the sewing process. She also gave me her sewing machine â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to take home to make any necessary alterations to the tent, but also to keep. This gift is extremely special to me. Not only is it a treasured family heirloom (grandma has made many memorable things with it over the years), but it also gives me the opportunity and inspiration to become the DIY goddess of my dreams. Maybe in a few months someone will ask me where I got that cute skirt and I can smugly answer â&#x20AC;&#x153;my sewing machineâ&#x20AC;?. And, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m no expert on these things, but I think the fact that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a â&#x20AC;&#x153;vintageâ&#x20AC;? sewing machine lends me even more hipster cred. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m also considering making my dad very proud by asking for a drill for my birthday. With a sewing machine, a drill and a little practice, the possibilities seem endless.

ways been a key aspect of our cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s culture. This decision was not only an insult to students, but also to all who live in Kingstonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s downtown core. It seems the winds of change do not favour our cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s downtown, a fact that should be of concern not only to those who live there, but also to those who live in the suburbs and countryside around the city who regularly or even semi-regularly venture downtown to shop, take in a show or go out for dinner. If these neighbourhoods are no longer appealing places for families to move to due to lack of nearby schools or other drawbacks, small businesses in the area stand little chance. The visual appeal of the city will suffer as a result, and tourists will no longer flock here as they do now. We believe that a thriving downtown is absolutely essential to the cultural and economic health of our city, and call on you, dear readers, to join us in supporting downtown businesses whenever possible. Please, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let the Limestone City turn into a sad Bruce Springsteen song. The Screening Room, Market Square, countless top-quality gourmet restaurants and many more unique-to-Kingston treasures are waiting for you downtown. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show them some love.

EMC Editorial - Recent news that the Indigo in downtown Kingston is closing later this spring was a bit like a slap in the face for us at the EMC, as it was for many residents of the Limestone City and its surrounding communities. In fact, it seems like the downtown area is going through a bit of a downswing all around. Willow, Olden Green, Empire Theatres and other businesses have also recently closed down, leaving depressing-looking vacant storefronts that complement the mess from the â&#x20AC;&#x153;big digâ&#x20AC;? in the worst kind of way. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more, despite almost universal community opposition, the province is hell-bent on closing at least one of our three downtown high schools, all of which are so essential to their respective communities. If the Limestone District School Board has its way, both KCVI and QECVI will be replaced with a mega school, and failing that it seems likely that QECVI will end up on the chopping block, depriving its neighbourhood of a much-needed community hub. As if that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bad enough, Kingston City Council recently decided to merge two downtown electoral districts in a strategic move to silence the voice of Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s students â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a community that brings a youthful energy to the downtown area that has al-

On again, off again spring is here

EMC News - Its been an on again off again spring thus far on the islands with rain , warm then very cool weather, with heavy winds again and again. Colds seem ever present. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh, what to wearâ&#x20AC;Ś shorts today, winter jackets and hoodies tomorrow? Sandals? Boots? â&#x20AC;&#x153; The daily question for the less hardy, because we do have a year round group of cyclists on Wolfe Island is, can I take out my bike, motor cycle, boat? Put the hood down? At the same time groups of cyclists and boarders come off the ferry from, who knows where, raring to ride the island roads. The good news is that the spring birds are back at our feeders. No one told them that while the calendar says its spring, spring-like weather remains illusive . Even the most ardent of gardeners , while itching to get their hands into the soil have been hesitant surmising that maybe frost might still touch the tips of tender plants. Gardeners are out there instead raking, setting rain barrels in place and gathering up brush from the last great wind. But the walkers and runners are out and aboutâ&#x20AC;Ś.everywhere, early morning, during the day and in the evening , singularly and in groups. Are they getting ready for the Wolfe Island Classic Road Race that comes up in July or is it all about good health and the exercise needed to maintain it? I suspect it is both. (And speaking of the ferry, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s busyâ&#x20AC;Ś.) And the islandsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; farmers and food growers are out and about too, waiting for the land to dry enough to work on it or in some instances are already on it. â&#x20AC;Ś The Canadian Coast Guard Boat has been out installing buoys and cargo ships are travelling the St. Lawrence. And it seems as if overnight the grass has turned from brown to green and snow drops have dared to bloomâ&#x20AC;Ś So is it spring? I pondered that this morning as I looked out over the water, and watched the swans float by and remembered other springs. I grew up in the city. Never in a house. In a second floor apartment, with an uncovered porch where every spring my mother filled planters with

flowers along its edges. With never enough room to grow seedlings for that purpose, as soon as the smell of spring was in the air, my mother and I would walk (never had a car) from home to Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s By Ward Market to find the precious plants that would fill those planters, much to my delight and to the delight of those who looked up as they past by and, of course, to the joy of my mother who would slip a tomato plant and a few herbs in the colourful mix. Spring also meant walks to Rockliffe Park along the shoreline of the Ottawa River where daffodils seemed to bloom of their own accord anywhere and everywhere along the route.. . And a daily walk with my Dad took us to the park at the end of Laurier Ave. East, past a home where Billy Bishop once lived and Laurier House, the home of Mackenzie King where, we are told, he talked to his departed mother. Past a school and a convent and a residential hotel and churches and lovely homes and apartment buildings and doctors offices all with great green lawns , lilac bushes , immense maple trees, balsam and oak, and a fragrance along the way I will never forget, particularly in the spring. But it was at the park below the fountain that I would see the first spring flowers popping up through the last of the snow under the bushes that shielded them. Then came trillium , jack in the pulpit and ladyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s slippers, the flowers and the fragrance of the lilac and honeysuckle bushes that filled my eyes with wonder and delight. And here we are on Wolfe Island, where the winds blow, the ferry keeps us close, excitement fills the air and where, like spring, the island has come alive , throwing open its doors to welcome family, friends and the guests, the tourists, the travellers who come our way. It must be SPRING. Spring at last.

County budget delay not sitting well Fire Chief wants training for firefighters with Central Frontenac treasurer on how to deal with meth labs By Craig Bakay Reporter

EMC News – Central Frontenac Treasurer Michael McGovern has a message for Frontenac County Council — hurry up and finish your budget. McGovern delivered his message at the regular Central Frontenac Council meeting last week in Sharbot Lake. McGovern pointed out that the townships collect the levies for the county and therefore need to know what those levies will be so they can be incorporated into the next tax billing. “We are cutting it close in order to send the tax bills to the taxpayer within the 21 days before the due date required in The Municipal Act in order to keep our regular due date that residents expect,” he said. “It is imperative that the tax bills are printed on or before May 27, 2013.” McGovern noted that it takes his staff “three to five days” to get the bills out and that last year the county budget was set May 11. “With a mid-May tax bill issue date, tax revenue will be received about two weeks later which will result in about $500-$850 less in interest received,” he said. McGovern said there are a number of other factors that come into play when budgets are delayed. “Delaying of the tax bills any further than midMay will result in a later due date, less time for processing of the 2013 Minutes of Settlement to be able to include with the bulling resulting in confusion for

residents, and increased complaints handled by staff, higher pre-authorized payment plan adjustments, untimely project delays and a lack of revenue to offset school board and county payments,” he said. Frontenac County Council has scheduled a special meeting May 2 to deal with its budget. One thing that is not affected by the date of the tax bill is Central Frontenac’s share of the Frontenac Community Arena’s Project End Zone, McGovern said. “Project End Zone was started in 2006 which added four new dressing rooms, an official’s room, skate sharpening room/pro shop and a storage room at the west end of the building,” he said. “South Frontenac loaned the arena board $632,542 for bridge financing (and) it was hoped that through pledges, user fees, golf tournaments and other special events that the loan outstanding would be $147,172 by Dec. 31, 2012 versus the current balance of $192,612. It was agreed by the board that after five years any outstanding loan would be looked at and determined at that time how it was to be paid. “We have contributed $82,000 from 2006 to 2008.” He said currently, Central Frontenac’s share of the outstanding loan would be $78,000, but there has been no official request for repayment. He said that the Parkland Reserve Fund currently sits at $98,000, a portion of which could be used to make the payment. “South Frontenac has paid their part off,” said Coun. Bill Snyder.

EMC News – Central Frontenac Fire Chief Bill Young would like to see his firefighters get some training on how to approach “meth” labs, following an incident last week where the fire department was called in by OPP when a lab was discovered near Mountain Grove. “We didn’t actually have to remove the lab but had to be present with water lines because the labs can explode,” Young said to Central Frontenac Council at its regular meeting last week in Sharbot Lake. “Meth” is short of methamphetamine, an illegal drug manufactured in clandestine labs for future sale to illicit drug users. Young’s concern wasn’t so much for times when the OPP calls but given the fact of this recent incident, for times when firefighters go into a situation when they don’t know such a lab is present. “This (incident) made it a little closer to home and we’d like some training, or at least somebody to come in and brief us, if we had to go in on a medical call or something and found one of these operations,” Young said. Mayor Janet Gutowski asked if the OPP provides “flagging” information to firefighters on potential residences, much the same way as it does for paramedics. “Yes,” said Young, “There are some residents they’re concerned about.”

Other than the meth lab excitement, Young said March was a pretty quiet month for the fire department. There were only 18 calls overall and a few “needless, nonsense” fires caused by carelessness. ••• As work on the new Mike Dean’s Superstore grocery continues in Sharbot Lake, acting CAO/ Clerk John DuChene said he wanted to prepare council for a couple of things that may come up. “There are potential septic upgrades within a very limited space at the back of the property,” he said. “Now that the Township owns the former railway property behind there, they make want some encroachment. “The easiest way to accomplish this would be to survey and sever some of the land and sell it to them but this is premature.” DuChene said the other thing is that the company is planning a 2,600 square-foot expansion at the back for preparation space and “this triggers a site-plan agreement. “What they want to do at the front amounts to landscaping and although they’d love the township to come to the plate and move the utility pole there, the $75,000 price-tag means that’s not going to happen.” The company has said they’d like to open a remodeled fresh department only area in early to mid-May with a full remodeled opening for the May 24 weekend.

Through all her soul-searching and subsequent work as a life coach, Reyers has come to view her rheumatoid arthritis – and indeed life in general - in a whole new light. She has found that by balancing her time, food, exercise and medication in a way that works for her unique needs, she has arrived at the place she needed to be all along: “[Before being diagnosed I was] going at the speed of light every day, working 60 hours a week,” she says. “And I believe that’s what triggered my

world that made the difference for me. If I looked at life with optimism and grace and gratitude, all of those things allowed me to just open up and let things happen and come to me, and I want that for other people.” Reyers advises her clients to focus on what makes them happy in life, instead of the “shoulds” of society. Society’s expectations, she says, can be very overwhelming or even impossible to live up to for those facing different kinds of adversity. For example, Reyers notes that it’s not always easy for one living with a chronic illness such as rheumatoid arthritis to get the recommended one hour of physical activity per day – a fact that can become very frustrating if the person becomes hung up on being “perfect” in the eyes of society. “That’s that expectation piece,” she says. “We go to that ‘should’ because we’re afraid of letting other people down, so we’re making other people happy and not ourselves... What we need to do is celebrate our uniqueness and do what’s right for us.”

they left the United States in favour of Upper Canada during the American Revolution. Barbara Heck led a group of families who shared a faith and culture and founded the Methodist Church of North America. Stones at Landon Bay came from the wall of the historic Heck House built by the family circa 1807. The Landon Bay Centre includes a wheelchair accessible garden. Not only are the gardens accessible for viewing, they are raised to a level where wheelchair-mobile volunteers are able to do the gardening. Within the wheelchair gardens, you’ll find a peaceful water garden. The only sounds come from wind chimes and the calls of many bird and insect species. The plants have been chosen for their scents and textures. You’ll see these gardens on the left as you enter the centre. They are beside the wooden rosette pavilion, which provides a shaded shelter where you can sit and enjoy the scenery. Hikers will appreciate the trails around the Landon Bay Centre. There is one main trail with branching side trails. The main path, the five kilometre Donevan Trail, rises and falls, twists and turns. You’ll need a good pair of hiking boots for the outing. The trail is named after some of the first volunteers at the centre, Charlie and Kay Donevan. Near the start of this well-marked

EMC Lifestyle – A unique nature setting exists just east of Kingston. In Paris in 2002, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) awarded biosphere reserve designation to the Canadian Thousand Islands-Frontenac Arch, a region bounded by Gananoque, Brockville and Westport. Within the biosphere, one of only 16 in Canada, you’ll find the Landon Bay Centre, located along the Thousand Islands Parkway, between Gananoque and the Thousand Islands Bridge. The Landon Bay Centre is considered to be the showcase of UNESCO’s Frontenac Arch Biosphere Reserve as it represents the ecosystem’s unique features. Biosphere reserves are designed to study how we can conserve a biodiversity that includes plants, animals and micro-organisms while meeting the needs of people. Such biospheres offer tools for studying the reconciliation of interests that are often in conflict. The 225-acre ecological reserve is maintained by the Barbara Heck Foundation and is dedicated to protecting the environment with low impact facilities and activities. The foundation is named after Barbara Heck, who was born in 1734 in County Limerick, of German ancestors who had settled in Ireland after being persecuted for their religious beliefs in their homeland. In the mid-1700s, many of the families moved to the United States. In loyalty to the British Crown,

The Smithsonian Institute recognizes the importance of this ecosystem and has a UNESCO â&#x20AC;&#x153;Man in the Biosphereâ&#x20AC;? forest biodiversity monitoring station collecting data for its world-wide forest program. Many groups from around the world travel to visit this eastern Ontario model forest. Along other trails youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see a fern glen, a butterfly garden, a heritage garden, an over-wintering garden for birds and even an ice storm garden. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a beaver dam and pond, many birds, butterflies and animals. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re lucky you might see deer and porcupine. Another highlight of your trek is along the western end of the Donevan Trail. From above, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll look down over an occupied ospreyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nest, high in the sky. Each year, the osprey arrive around April 1. From the vantage point of the top of a cliff overlooking the nest, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see these majestic birds nesting. A mother (a rather large beast) feeds her chicks whose active bobbing heads are quite visible. Bring binoculars to view the action in the nest. Somewhere in the distance, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see the male, a majestic bird, watching over the dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s activities. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a

spectacular natural site. Once again, for those whose means of mobility is a wheelchair or if you have limited mobility, you will still be able to view this awesome site. Just to the west of Landon Bay Centre is Cross Cemetery Road. About a kilometre along it on your right, you will find a lookout platform at the side of the road. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss it. From this lookout you can view the ospreyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nest. Plan to stay a while. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mesmerizing to witness this natural wonder. If you find that a day doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t offer enough time to appreciate this natural setting, the Landon Bay Centre includes a campground with 125 campsites. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a pool, playground, outdoor fireplace, hot showers, beach volleyball, basketball and horseshoe pits. Directions: Drive east along highway 401 to exit 647, the Thousand Islands Parkway. For a more pleasant drive, take Highway 2 eastbound from Kingston. Go through Gananoque and onto the Thousand Islands Parkway. Travel eastbound on the parkway for six kilometres. The Landon Bay Centre is on the north side of the parkway. For more information: www. landonbay.org; (613) 382-2719; email landonbay@1000island.net.

Sci-fi thriller serves up plenty of twists and turns My Take BY MARK HASKINS

MOVIE: Oblivion STARRING: Tom Cruise, Andrea Riseborough, Olga Kurylenko, and Canada Morgan Freeman Jack BY JOHN TUCKER Joseph DIRECTOR: Kosinski RATING: PG  EMC Entertainment - Oblivion is a hardcore science fiction story that tries to blow your mind. I loved it. My wife on the other hand had some issues. Maybe it’s a guy thing. After the aliens blow up the moon they invade Earth. We win the war, but not without devastating the planet. The surviving population is forced to flee to Saturn’s moon, Triton. Jack (Tom Cruise) and Victoria

(Andrea Riseborough) have been left behind as the clean-up crew. Jack’s job is to repair the drones that guard the massive machines converting Earth’s oceans into energy for the colony on Triton. Victoria’s job is to keep an eye on Jack. The war may be over but the surviving aliens, or Scavs, are still waging a guerrilla war against Jack and the drones. This is Jack’s life. For security reasons his memory was wiped prior to starting his mission so this is all he’s ever known. There is something in his subconscious, however. A trace of a memory. A hint of a life or a time before. It causes Jack to ask questions and to wonder. Then the Scavs cause a space capsule with humans in suspended animation to fall to earth, and Jack gets a whole new set of questions. The lone survivor is Julia (Olga Kurylenko). She seems uneasy, like she’s hiding something or knows something. She convinces Jack to go back to the crash site to recover the flight recorder, but they get captured by the Scavs. That’s when Jack’s whole world gets turned upside down. Oblivion has all the hallmarks of a great sci-fi film. First the special effects are amazing. The technology looks incredibly futuristic and real even though most of it only exists in a computer somewhere. Second, the bleak post apocalyptic landscape is hauntingly familiar yet disturbingly different. Lastly we have our brave survivors battling mysterious and powerful aliens for the fate of

mankind. You can’t ask for more, but what Oblivion does really well, and why it’s worth seeing, are the twists it takes. Just when you think you’ve figured out the big plot twist you realize that plot twist is just a distraction for the real plot twist. It’s outstanding. Tom Cruise really has an uncanny ability to become his character. That combined with his emotional range and physicality make him highly entertaining to watch. Andrea Riseborough plays Victoria a little cold, a little emotionless, and almost robotic. In other words she is perfect. Julia is one of the few characters who has some idea of what’s really going on. Olga Kurylenko is marvelous as she reins in the panic to deal with where and when she is. Morgan Freeman’s character Malcolm Beech does know what’s going on. He’s a tough no-nonsense military man, and Freeman plays it beautifully. Oblivion is great science fiction right down to the final twist. I loved the ending, but my wife hated it. Must be a guy thing.  Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

HOROSCOPES

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 – Aries, you may feel like you need to move faster to get ahead, but the opposite is true this week. Slow down and focus on the details and you will benefit. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 – Taurus, though the first few days of the week may seem disastrous, hang in there and you will find things will turn around quite quickly. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 – Gemini, sometimes you have to make some noise to be heard, which may seem out of character for you. If the cause is that important, you will do what is necessary. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 – Cancer, you can’t get enough of a certain thing, but you may need to pace yourself. Otherwise your interest may start to wane. A surprise situation arises on Thursday.

Hermâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1957 Pontiac Laurentian convertible met nasty fate EMC Lifestyle - Herm Bauer was born in 1941 and grew up on a farm near Staples, Ontario. The family had two work horses named Barney and Maude. In 1961, Herm purchased a baby blue 1957 Pontiac Laurentian convertible with a black top from Sterling Geeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s car lot in nearby Kingsville. Canadian Pontiacs in 1957 came in three series: the budget-conscious Strato-Chief, the mid-range Laurentian (named after a mountainous region of Quebec), and the top-of-the-line Parisienne. Convertibles were available in both the Laurentian and Parisienne series. Hermâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Laurentian convertible came with a six-cylinder engine and three-speed manual transmission with the shift lever on the steering column (â&#x20AC;&#x153;three on the treeâ&#x20AC;? we used to say). Canadian Pontiacs at that time were really Chevrolets with Pontiac grilles, taillights, and side trim. Hermâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s six-cylinder engine had 235 cubic inches with 140 horsepower (138 more than he had on the farm). He was lucky he did not have an American Pontiac. They all came with a V8 engine of 347 cubic inches and horsepower up to 310 with the fuel-injected Bonneville. Rear tires wore out fast on those cars. Hermâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1957 Pontiac Laurentian was the only convertible he ever owned. Essex County had many more gravel roads back then compared to now, and dust was always swirling around inside the car, even when the top was up. During my search for a picture of a â&#x20AC;&#x2122;57 Pontiac convertible to go with this story, I found the picture you see here of a â&#x20AC;&#x2122;57 Pontiac 4-door hardtop in a magazine ad. Herm asked me to publish this picture with his

1957 Pontiac Laurentian 4-door hardtop (Macleanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s magazine, February 16, 1957). This is the car Herm wishes he had bought instead of the convertible. Note the absence of silver streaks on the hood, a Pontiac trademark since 1935. Side trim resembles a rocket taking off, now reminding us that Russia launched the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first artificial Earth satellite on October 4, 1957. story because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the body style he wished he had bought instead of the convertible. We know for sure that Hermâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pontiac is no longer around. He had been driving it for about two years when he parked it in front of 80 Victoria St. South in Leamington, where

he was living at the time. A drunk driver backing up too fast smashed into the front of his car. The left front wheel was bent 45 degrees, and the frame was probably also bent. The insurance gave Herm $400 for his car and he applied this toward the pur-

chase of a black 1960 Meteor 4-door sedan, which he and his wife drove on a vacation to Kentucky and stayed at a motel with a swimming pool. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m always looking for more stories. Email billtsherk@sympatico.ca or write Bill

Sherk, 25 John St., P.O. Box 255, Leamington, ON N8H 3W2. Everyone whose story is published in this column will receive a free autographed copy of my latest book: â&#x20AC;&#x153;OLD CAR DETECTIVE FAVOURITE STORIES, 1925 to 1965.â&#x20AC;?

Octane rating affects car costs different grades of gasoline available at the pump. Unleaded versions come in regular, plus and premium varieties, which coordinates to the octane of the gasoline. The octane rating of gasoline tells a driver how much the fuel can be compressed before it spontaneously ignites, rather than igniting

A variety of factors come into play when a person is deciding which new or previously owned vehicle to purchase. While body type, model year and make all are considered, shoppers should also look into what type of fuel the vehicle needs. Many drivers are aware of the

normally from a spark plug in the vehicle engine. Lower-octane gasoline can withstand less compression than higher-octane gasoline. Gas that ignites on its own rather than from a spark from the spark plug causes knocking and pinging, which can damage the engine. Therefore it is important to use the right octane level of gasoline for a vehicle, based on the carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s compression ratio for the engine. Car engines that are rated in a particular way will benefit from the correct octane in gasoline. Higher-performance engines commonly found in EMISSION race cars and

sporty, luxury vehicles will generally require a premium, highoctane gasoline to run at their optimal performance. Most cars on the market are built to take regular 87-octane gasoline. A visit to the gas station clearly indicates that higher-octane fuel costs more per gallon than the lowest octane. Over time, filling up with premium gas can be a significant factor in how much it costs to own a particular vehicle. If you are looking to save money, it is important to consider just how much of your budget will be devoted to fuel costs. A vehicle that requires premium gasoline instead of regular gasoline may end up costing a few hundred dollars more per year based on the size of the fuel tank. It is important to note that using a higher octane fuel in a vehicle that is not rated for it will not increase performance -- it only will

end up costing you more. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because the octane rating refers to how much energy it takes to ignite the gasoline and at what point in the compression cycle, not how much power the gasoline will put out. Premium gas will not improve gas mileage or give the vehicle more â&#x20AC;&#x153;oomphâ&#x20AC;? if the engine is not designed to accommodate a higher-octane fuel. In fact, engines that are not designed for high-octane gas may actually lose power because it burns so much slower and the ignition timing is not tuned for it. It is always wise to consult with the ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manual to determine the type of fuel that will offer the best performance in the car. Those shopping for a new vehicle should pay attention to octane ratings and not assume that every car they test drive is best when running on regular octane.

coolant is being used for the particular vehicle. 2. Dirty, inadequate motor oil cannot dissipate heat as well as clean oil. Check the oil level and viscosity. Change the oil before a long trip or if it looks past its prime. 3. Confirm radiator hoses are in good working order and do not look worn out. 4. Have a mechanic check that a radiator fan is working and that there is adequate air flow through the radiator. 5. Be aware of engine temperature by watching the gauge on the dashboard. If an engine seems like it’s about to overheat, here are some steps to take. * Slow down, and pull into the right lane. Turn on the heat in the car and open the windows. This may draw heat out of the engine block, while maintaining a slow pace can continue to draw air over the engine. * Pull over and open the hood to allow the engine to cool. * Top off the radiator with coolant. Water can also work in a pinch. * Take frequent breaks during long road trips to allow the engine to cool down for at least 15 minutes. * Be sure to clear the radiator from obstructions, including leaves or insects that may have collected. Men and women without auto maintenance experience should not touch anything under the hood. Consult with a mechanic to determine engine overheating causes.

including: - towing service if your vehicle cannot start or operate safely, - battery service if your car’s battery needs a jump, - flat tire service if you get a flat tire and don’t have a spare or cannot change the tire yourself, - fuel delivery service if your car runs out of gas, and - lockout service if you lock your keys in the car. These services can act as a safety net should an issue arise when you’re on the road and far away from home or far away from a service station. Keep your membership card in your wallet and store their customer service number in your cellular phone should you accidentally lose your membership card or lock it inside your car. * Bring cash as well as credit cards on the trip. When embarking on a road trip, don’t assume you will have ready access to an ATM on your trip or at your destination. This means you may reach a point when you have no cash on hand. While it’s a good idea to bring some cash along on the trip, bring a credit card or cards as well should you find yourself with no cash. A major credit card, such as a Mastercard, American Express or Visa, is likely to be accepted at most filling stations. * Invest in a road navigation system. A road navigation system can be your best friend, helping you find your way in places with which you are unfamiliar. Road navigation systems can alert you to traffic conditions while providing directions and alternate routes. Some systems will even alert you to nearby filling stations, lodging or restaurants.

Spring is a season of rebirth for many people, who welcome the warm weather with open arms, especially those who just endured a harsh winter. Spending time outdoors when the weather warms up is a popular pastime for many people each spring. Road trips taken by college kids or high schoolers hitting the road for spring break or professionals and parents packing up the car for a weekend getaway have become synonymous with spring. A road trip is a great way to get outdoors and make the most of a warm day, but there are a few tricks of the trade drivers can employ to ensure their road trips are as enjoyable as possible. * Give your car a good wash. Drivers who live in areas with heavy snowfall should give their vehicles a thorough cleaning before hitting the road for a spring road trip. Salt and sand can build up on a vehicle over the course of a snowy winter, so a power washing will help remove excess salt, sand or dirt and help the car run more smoothly. * Get the vehicle a tune-up. A tune-up, including an oil change, should be part of your pre-trip planning. Make sure winter hasn’t caused any damage to the vehicle’s body and ask your mechanic to perform a thorough inspection of the vehicle’s suspension and brakes. If any problems arise, address them before embarking on your road trip. * Subscribe to a roadside assistance program. Roadside assistance programs, whether it’s AAA or a program offered through your insurance company, provide a measure of security to roadtrippers. Many roadside assistance programs provide variety of emergency assistance for members,

An overheated engine can render a car useless in a matter of minutes. A vehicle is propelled by an engine that ignites gasoline and causes controlled explosions within. An engine can produce quite a lot of heat. Compound this with external temperatures and an overheated engine may occur. Other mechanical factors can also cause an engine to overheat. These include a faulty thermostat to regulate coolant supply to the engine and even an inoperable radiator fan. Experts say an average car engine is designed to operate within 195 to 220 F. Anything above that could cause engine failure. Overheating can cause a lot of damage to a car. It may damage and burn holes in the parts. Rings, pistons or rod bearings may become impaired, or one can blow a head gasket. Coolant is designed to protect an engine to a point, but it can also become compromised under high heat. Boiling coolant may cause the radiator and hoses to burst. The best way to avoid engine and vehicle trouble due to overheating is to prevent an engine from becoming overheated in the first place. Here are strategies to employ. 1. Ensure that coolant levels are maintained and there are no leaks that would cause coolant to drip out. Be sure the right

by the South Frontenac Community Services Corporation’s food bank. May 6 – 10 marks Hunger Awareness Week in Canada. All Canadians are encouraged to take part by “giving it up for hunger” and going without food for the entire day on May 8. They are then asked to share what they are doing by explaining it to those they see during the day, and mentioning it on Facebook and Twitter. The hope is that more people will be inspired to donate to or volunteer at their local food banks. Staff members at SFCSC are participating in Hunger Awareness Week by fasting on May 8. By operating the organization’s food bank, they are reminded daily of how lucky they are to be able to put food on the table. As CEO David Townsend points out, however, actually going without food for an entire day will no doubt open their eyes even wider. “I’m very nervous about doing it because I take food for granted,” he says. “I have a healthy breakfast and I’ve got a bowl of soup in front of me for lunch and I know that there’s leftover roast

ENCHANTÉ

Thank a teacher EMC Lifestyle – Teaching is a vital profession. In some areas of the world, children, especially girls, receive little or no education. This week’s column, although focused on one teacher, is really about all teachers, or at least 95% of them. Teachers inhabit one of the most misunderstood professions. We don’t see most of the work they do. After that end-of-day bell rings, there’s a lot more work at home. They mark assignments, prepare their next lessons and catch up on paperwork. Many teachers work late into the evening. That doesn’t include the endless hours they may choose to volunteer in community, arts and sports events. On top of this, a teacher is an employee who doesn’t receive vacation pay. That’s right: those long summer holidays don’t really exist. Teachers are not paid for their summer breaks. They have part of their pay deducted throughout

the year, so they can have an income in the summer when they’re not otherwise being paid. In addition, many teachers spend weeks in the summer upgrading their skills at university and professional training programs, often at their own expense. The agreement (recently betrayed by the Liberal government) whereby teachers don’t receive vacation pay was reached years ago. In exchange for giving up vacation pay, teachers were allowed to bank their sick leave. I’m hoping the government will now compensate teachers for the years of vacation pay they gave up. Enough of my rant. Let’s look at the good people who dedicate their lives to the field of education. *** Brad Douglas teaches a Grade 5/6 split class at Mother Teresa Catholic School in the city’s west end. I sat in on his class last week.

Enchanting and fascinating people….and their world

In addition to the many hours he puts into his teaching career, Douglas has 2.9 children of his own. Ella and Noah are the current two. His wife is expecting their third child soon. It’s mesmerizing to observe a good teacher in action. During math class, the kids explore theoretical and experimental probability. Douglas explains the concept with lots of graphics on the Smart Board, a giant computer screen that acts like most other “smart” devices: it’s a giant touch pad. Gone are blackboards, chalk and erasers. Now it’s a computerized whiz show that Billy Nye the Science Guy would have envied. Douglas calls children up to the front and asks them to work on examples on the Smart Board. Then he assigns the task. The kids have to roll dice 50 times and record the product for each throw. Kids pair up. It’s organized chaos as

Douglas keeps his eyes roving around the class, moving in where any child is having difficulty. He helps them out and it’s back to hovering. He’s in an unusual situation. This male teacher has a male educational assistant and a male student teacher, a rarity in elementary school. Toward the end of the exercise, Douglas cues the kids that their time is nearly complete. “Three-two-one-zero,” he calls out. “Have your eyes on me please.” Douglas explores the results with the class. “Anyone get one that totally goes against the theory?” There are several, including one group that six times out of 50 came up with 36. The theoretical probability of that was only 3%. The experimental number was 12%. Loaded dice? At the end of the mathematics exercise, Douglas gives the kids a caution. “I have this feeling that there could

Mark Bergin

be a quiz tomorrow,” he says. “I foresee one in the near future, like tomorrow.” He wants to test them while the material is fresh. They move on to writing. There’s a slight buzz in the room. Douglas smacks his hands together. Clap-clap. Clap-clap-clap. It sounds like a sports cheer is about to begin. But the class goes silent. Douglas’ hand-clapping is the cue to hush up. The kids actively hush themselves. There’s a collective whisper. “Shush. Shush.” Douglas talks about writing narratives. He asks the kids the characteristics of a good story. Then he asks them to describe persuasive writing. He enlists a student to hand out assignments. “Can I have someone explain what we’re supposed to be doing now?” Kids respond.

Thank a teacher The buzz in the room increases as they get down to work. Douglas is in his ninth year teaching with the Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board. Before that, he taught in South Korea for three years. He completed his undergraduate work at Queen’s University and his teaching education at the University of Western Ontario. I ask him when he was first aware that he wanted to become a teacher. “I’ve always wanted to be a teacher,” he says. Then he laughs: “When my NHL career fizzled around the age of 10.” He credits some of his own teachers for his interest in the profession. “I’ve had some really good teachers,” he said. “They had a big influence. I’ll never forget my Grade 6 and Grade 8 teachers. There are really good people in this board.” He’s a well-rounded guy. As a kid, he was active in sports like hockey, baseball and basketball. “We used to be able to play all kinds of sports,” he said. “Now kids have to specialize. My parents were into sports. We didn’t go on vacations, we went to hockey camps.” This sports guy is also an active theatre fan. I ask him about the dual interest in a world where people are more often than not expected to be either the artsy or the jock. “I was always that kid who, when they wanted someone to speak I was comfortable doing it.” As a youngster, he even spoke at the opening of the school where he now teaches. He credits a couple of catalysts for his theatrical interest. One was

the Grade 8 teacher who took his class to see Phantom of the Opera, starring Colm Wilkinson. Then, in high school, he had a drama teacher who had a big impact on him. Douglas recently directed the school musical, The Sound of Music. I didn’t see it, but many who have spoken to me have said it was the best elementary school play they’ve ever seen. A teacher told me that she thought that Brad Douglas must have given up every weekend for months to be able to produce that high quality of a production. “I just want my students to have the opportunity to get everything they can out of their education,” said Douglas. “I love coaching too. And music. Appreciation for all the arts. I really like to put my time into theatre. It gives kids a real confidence.” Contrary to many who grumble about life “in my day”, Douglas said he thinks kids today have it harder than children in the past. “The things they are exposed to academically are a lot more challenging,” he said. “I like some of those challenges. It helps kids become deeper thinkers. I like challenging them to speak their mind, to be comfortable thinking outside the box. I don’t want to create a society of robots. That’s why I love the arts, too.” He noted that, although he considers teaching a difficult profession, he loves his work. “It’s an ever-changing world,” he said. “You can’t become comfortable. Things are always changing. Next year it’s a new bunch of kids. There are new challenges and more things to learn. For the kids and for me. I wouldn’t do anything else.”

EMC Lifestyle – Move over Niagara Region, there’s a new kid on the wine producing block in Ontario! In truth vineyards are not new to Prince Edward County. The first wine grapes were planted along the north shore of Lake Ontario in the mid 19th century. The region briefly fell under the North American wine spotlight in 1876 when a gentleman named Dorland Nixon was awarded a gold medal for his wine at the Philadelphia Exposition, the first World’s Fair ever held in the United States. Nixon’s early success aside it is fair to say Prince Edward County (PEC) is “Ontario’s newest wine producing region.” The modern era in PEC began in the 1980s when an experimental vineyard was planted using Vitis vinifera grapes, a common variety in places such as the Mediterranean, central Europe and southwestern Asia. The maritime climate and limestone base makes the county ideal for grape growing. It wasn’t until 1993 that the first vineyard for commercial purposes was established. That operation grew into Waupoos Estates Winery near Picton which opened to the public in 2001. Waupoos received the second winery licence in the county, following the nearby County Cider Company in North Marysburgh in 1996. Since the dawn of the new millennium wineries and vineyards have been opening at an incredible pace in PEC. On the 2012 Wine Tour Map there were 26 wineries listed, along with six vineyards that grow grapes but are not open to the public. For the record the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia and the Niagara Peninsula in southern Ontario are the leading wine producing areas in Canada. In this province Niagara features nearly 80 wineries. There are more than a dozen in what is officially called the Lake Erie North Shore and Pelee Island wine region and 10 more in the Toronto-North Durham region. Canadian wine has been produced, with varying degrees of success, for more than 200 years. In 1988 three events occurred which had a major positive impact on the industry. Arguably the most important was Free Trade with the United States. The same year the Vintners Quality Alliance (VQA) standard was established. If you buy Canadian wines you will be familiar with the acronym VQA which carries with it a promise of quality product. Also in 1988 a major grape vine replacement and upgrading program swept

the Canadian wine industry. That initiative has had a major positive influence on the viability of the industry in Canada. To put things in perspective however, Canada remains but a blip on the world wine map. In 2002 this country produced some 76 million litres of wine. Sounds like a lot doesn’t it? That accounted for only 0.3 per cent of world production. You are probably wondering why I have chosen this week to regale you with details about the wine industry in Prince Edward County, Ontario and Canada? Wine getaway In December our friends Frank and Wendy LeBlanc were sitting in Pearson Airport in Toronto waiting to catch a flight home. Wendy was reading the Globe and Mail when she spotted an advertisement for a spring getaway at a B&B in beautiful, downtown Picton. It really is beautiful by the way – what a wonderful old community! The weekend included overnight accommodations, breakfast and dinner and a Friday evening wine tasting. Because we travel together regularly Wendy wondered if we would be interested. The LeBlancs, who are very familiar with PEC, have wanted to take us on a wine tour there for some time. We immediately said “yes.” It was around Christmas when Wendy booked our spring getaway. At the time we had visions of a sunny April weekend with warm temperatures and gentle breezes off Lake Ontario. Perhaps even a chance to sit on an outdoor patio enjoying lunch and sampling VQA wine at one of the many Picton area establishments. The reality was quite different. In fact if we had traveled there last December it is possible the weather would have been more favorable. On April 12 we left Carleton Place in the teeth of a late winter gale. There was a vicious mixture of freezing rain, ice pellets and snow in the air. As Frank guided the car southward we had already pledged to turn around and go home, abandoning our pre-paid expedition, if the roads proved too hazardous to navigate. The driving was sloppy early in the drive. Near Seeley’s Bay on Highway 15 the icy stuff turned to straight rain. It was clear sailing for us after that. Kingston, Napanee and communities along the shore of Lake Ontario had received a substantial amount of freezing rain. There were branches down everywhere as well as some large trees which had clearly stood for 100 years or more prior to this event. The electrical grid had also taken a beating. Fortunately we missed the worst of it. By the time we reached our destination

the mercury was touching 5C and the ice was rapidly disappearing. Not the nicest weekend of the year for a wine tour! But it was perfect indoors of course and our PEC adventure turned out to be a major success. We visited five wineries and an apple cider operation in two days. We enjoyed learning about the county’s burgeoning wine industry. There was also an excellent Friday night dinner in the restaurant of our B&B. One of the finest meals we have experienced in a long time. Despite rain showers and unseasonably cold temperatures Frank and Wendy took Kathy and I on a very enjoyable driving tour of PEC. We enjoyed breathtaking views of the Bay of Quinte and Lake Ontario. There was also a brief ride on the Glenora Ferry which connects the sprawling peninsula to the mainland. A visit to the incredible Lake on the Mountain, above Picton, is a must for any visitor. Picton, population 4,000, appears to be thriving along with the wine industry. We were very impressed by the main street and the many stately homes. Kathy and I had not been to Picton for many years and we enjoyed it immensely. Certainly for any wine lover PEC is well worth a visit. We found the quality of the wine is generally very good. Some falls into the “excellent” category. Because the region is so new it can only get better! The majority of the wineries – about half of them – are located close to the village of Wellington. Previously I only knew the community because of its junior hockey team, Wellington Dukes of the Ontario Junior Hockey League (Tier 1 Junior A). There is much more to Wellington with its boutiques, galleries, restaurants and pubs. In fact the county features many points of interest. Included is an excellent cheese factory, Black River Cheese at Milford. We have been urged to visit the area by family and friends who have been there many times in recent years. Thanks to the LeBlanc’s we can now say we have been there. And we will definitely go back. For residents of our region PEC and its interesting and growing wine industry is an easy drive. Sandbanks Provincial Park near Picton is another excellent summer destination for families, including many people from our district. Obviously I recommend our own area first and foremost. But if you’re looking for a picturesque and interesting place to visit, within easy reach, Prince Edward County is an excellent option and not just for the wine!

International Day of the Midwife to be celebrated with special song by local musician hpratt-campbell@theemc.ca

EMC Events - From the moment local musician Megan Hamilton found out she was pregnant with her daughter, Audrey, now 20 months, she knew she wanted midwifery care throughout her pregnancy, labour and delivery. The decision, it turned out, was an excellent one. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The care that they provided for us was immeasurable,â&#x20AC;? Hamilton says. She explains that although she ended up needing to have a C-section was thus transferred over to the care of an obstetrician at the last minute, her midwife, Kelli

Siegwart, was with her the whole way: â&#x20AC;&#x153;She hugged me while they were doing the spinal, and she was allowed to be in the room when my husband wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, so I had an advocate. She helped me breastfeed as soon as possible. I wanted to see Audrey before she was cleaned up, so she brought her right to me - all that sort of stuff that you wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily expect.â&#x20AC;? To show her appreciation for the care she received, and to help raise awareness of the importance of midwives, Hamilton is performing a song she wrote for Audrey while she was pregnant at the local celebration of the International Day of the Midwife, which is taking place Sunday in Skeleton Park. Local midwives and com-

munity members will help Hamilton perform the song, which is called When You Are Born. The event will be recorded and become part of the Skeleton Park Community Songbook, a project that celebrates the downtown neighbourhood with music written and performed by individuals and community groups based in the area. Everybody is invited to participate in the event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a very hard song to learn,â&#x20AC;? says Hamilton; she explains that she will be teaching it to participants before it is recorded. Midwife Kelli Siegwart notes that International Day of the Midwife celebrations have become increasingly popular

over the last few years. Their intent is in part to raise awareness of the Millennium Development Goals that have been set up by the World Health Organization, which include lowering the rate of maternal deaths and lowering the rate of neo-natal morbidity and mortality. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The WHO, the United Nations and other global networks have indicated that more midwives would help us meet those goals,â&#x20AC;? Siegwart explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because 2015 is the year to achieve these goals and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re coming really close to that time, I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more important [than ever] to recognize what we can still do to help achieve the goals because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not quite on track yet.â&#x20AC;? The Community Midwives of Kingston are involved in both local and global initiatives to improve the pre-natal and post-partum care women receive. Midwife Heather Brechin, for example, is part of an interdisciplinary team from Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s University that is studying the links between pregnancy, labour, delivery and postpartum care in Bangladesh. Here at home, the midwives are working toward getting the cap lifted on the number of births they can attend at Kingston General Hospital. As a result of the cap, the Community Midwives of Kingston are forced to turn away 50 per cent of women who come to them for care. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working hard to provide that care that women are requesting,â&#x20AC;? Sieg-

wart says. She points out that despite certain myths and misconceptions that label midwifery care as unconventional or hippy-dippy, research has shown it is an extremely safe, effective choice, even when compared to an obstetrician-attended birth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have lower admission rates to the hospital for newborns, and we have really high vaginal birth rates,â&#x20AC;? Siegwart says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our C-section rate is 15 per cent. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s half of the provincial average.â&#x20AC;? Siegwart hopes as many people as possible will come out on Sunday to help celebrate the International Day of the Midwife. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Skeleton Park Community Songbook is such a great project, and the midwives are really honoured to be asked to be part of it,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And the fact that Meganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of our clients and we were there with her for her birth I think is pretty special. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to make those links and those connections and contribute to the positive birthing community, and just the community at large.â&#x20AC;? Everybody is welcome to come join the celebration in Skeleton Park at 1 p.m. on Sunday. If it is raining, the event will be moved into the Community Midwives of Kingston building, located across the street from the park at 391 Barrie St. To learn more about the Skeleton Park Community Songbook, please visit http:// skeletonparkmusicfestival.ca/communitysongbook/.

oven at 400 F for about 15-20 mins. The potatoes are down when they are slightly soft and brown. Set them aside until you are ready to assemble the pizza.

For the sauce: â&#x20AC;˘ Slice and dice the shallot, chop the garlic quite fine or use a press if you have one. â&#x20AC;˘ Strip the thyme and rosemary from the stem and roughly chop. (It smells so good) â&#x20AC;˘ In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt one tablespoon of the butter.

The sauce should reduce to about a Âź cup. â&#x20AC;˘ Turn off the heat and add the remaining butter 1 tablespoon at a time. Whisking after each addition. The butter will melt and thicken the sauce. If you add of the butter at the same time it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t thicken as well. Trust me. â&#x20AC;˘ Spread ½ the sauce on the pizza, sprinkle with ½ of the mozzarella. Arrange the potato slices on top of the cheese and top with fresh thyme and rosemary. â&#x20AC;˘ Gently slide the pizza onto the hot stone or keep on a baking tray. Bake the pizza for about 10-12 minutes or until the cheese is bubbling and the crust is turning golden brown.

Instructions: â&#x20AC;˘ Cook the potatoes in advance. â&#x20AC;˘ Line a baking sheet with baking paper (parchment paper). Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. (I also cut my potatoes in advance and left them in the fridge in a bowl with cold water to keep fresh.) Sprinkle with sea salt and fresh ground pepper. Spread the potatoes on There should be left over sauce and pothe baking sheet, rubbing them into the tatoes to make another pizza. I used the left oil, salt and pepper. Then flip them over. over sauce to add to the pasta I made later in Place the potatoes into the pre-heated the evening. It was easy and scrumptious.

Marguirite’s eagerness to do chores lands her in the outhouse Mary Cook

Columnist

editorial@theheritageemc.ca

EMC Lifestyle - “There’s goin’ to be heck to pay,” Emerson said at recess that day when the warm spring weather had finally arrived, and the entire school was out in the schoolyard. Even Miss Crosby. She was sitting on the stoop working on her daybook and enjoying the warm sunny day. Emerson went on to explain. “Miss Crosby told Two Mile Herman it was his turn to clean off the black boards after school. And when I went back in the school to get the ball glove out of the cloak room, there was Marguirite wiping the blackboards like a maniac. The chalk dust was flying everywhere. I tell you Miss Crosby won’t be happy, and Two Mile Herman will just about kill Marguirite.”

Back then it was a privilege to be asked to do any of the cleaning necessary to keep the school as neat and tidy as possible. Miss Crosby had to be careful not to give the privilege to the same person too often, or the rest of us would be mad! Whatever job we were given, we did it happily, and even a bit smugly. It was an honour, and one not to be taken lightly. There was no such thing as a school caretaker back then. We scrubbed the floors once a month, took ashes out of the stove, washed the windows, and one of us, for a whole week, had the job of emptying the big green tin wastebasket at the end of each day. One of the jobs nobody wanted was one assigned on the last school day of every month. Because it was a hateful and detested job, it always went to a boy from Senior Fourth. He would carry the pail of lime out of the cupboard at the back of the school, and go to the outhouse and shovel in a heaping dose. Inside the outhouse there was a tin can of lime which we were

supposed to use when we went to the bathroom for serious business. But I was pretty sure back then that very few pupils bothered. Every morning, just after singing God Save the King, Miss Crosby would announce the name of the person who would be given the privilege of cleaning off the blackboards, and that day, the job fell to Two Mile Herman. Thinking she was going to get on the good side of Miss Crosby, bad Marguirite had sneaked back into the school during the afternoon recess, and stole the job away from Two Mile Herman! Right out from under his nose. Well, when Miss Crosby rang the bell and we marched back in (all in order of course...the youngest of us at the front of the line, the oldest ones bringing up the rear), there was Marguirite, beaming ear-to-ear with the blackboards rubbed clear. What she hadn’t done, which was always part of the job, was take the brushes outside and pound them together to get rid of the chalk dust.

She left them sitting on the ledge of the blackboard. To say Two Mile Herman was roary-eyed mad was an understatement. “That was my job, you dirty little Protestant,” he roared. (Two Mile Herman was Catholic). Sixteen pairs of eyes darted (there were 18 of us at the Northcote School) from Miss Crosby who wouldn’t tolerate for a second an outburst like she just heard from Two Mile, then to Marguirite and then to Herman. I was sure Herman would get a taste of the leather strap which hung on a cup hook on the side of the teacher’s desk. And bad Marguirite sitting so smug you just wanted to slap her was beaming. Well, it didn’t take the rest of the day for Miss Crosby to settle the issue. She didn’t say a word to Two Mile Herman...not a single word! Her face was turning beet red, and she marched to the front of the room, took the brushes off the ledges...the ledge ran the full length of the blackboard at the front of the school and all down the south

side... so there were six brushes in all ..and marched right down to Marguirite’s desk. “Young lady, if you are so anxious to work, you can take these outside and get rid of the chalk dust. And when you are finished, you can go to the cloak room and get the pail of lime and go to the outhouse and you know what has to be done.” Her voice had risen to a high pitch, and she practically threw the brushes at Marguirite. Marguirite was livid. Lime in the outhouse! That was a boy’s job! But there was no negotiating with a teacher back in those days. Her command was the law! It took a few minutes for the rest of the school to settle down, but we could hear Marguirite slapping the brushes together outside. We could also hear her crying and I was pretty sure I could hear her stamping her feet, which she was prone to doing when upset. The last we heard was the scraping of the lime pail going down the cement steps on its way to the outhouse.

Twenty-five years keeping children safe By Mark Bergin Correspondent

EMC News - Last year was a banner year for Dan Taft. His favourite hockey team, the Boston Bruins, won the Stanley Cup. This year’s even bigger for him, although he may not agree; the Stanley Cup victory was huge for him. October will mark 25 years of Dan Taft’s service as a Kingston crossing guard, watching over the children of Welborne Avenue Public School. Some guards are young, some are older and some are in-between. They all care about the kids they protect. Dan Taft is no exception. Although the U.S. Postal Service has no official motto, the phrase often associated with the organization, and, by association, Canada Post, is: “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.” It’s inscribed on the James Farley Post Office in Manhattan. The phrase just as aptly describes the crossing guards who help children travel safely across streets between home and school. In Kingston, you’ll find these officials at crossing locations near every school. They work early in the morning and return to their posts at lunch hour and after school. These caring men and women have likely saved many young lives. Their role is legally recognized. It’s described in the Ontario Ministry of Transportation Driver’s Handbook: “Where a school crossing guard displays a red-and-white stop sign you must stop before reaching the crossing and remain stopped until all persons, including the school crossing guard, have cleared your half of the roadway and it is safe to

proceed. If you have any doubts on when it is safe to drive forward, wait until all children and the guard have cleared the crossing. Drivers who don’t follow the stopping requirements may be fined between $150 and $500 and get 3 demerit points.” Taft was born in Montreal but the family moved when Dan was six months old. His father was a United Church minister who was going to school at Sir George Williams University. Dan’s father finished his program at Queen’s University, during which time the family lived in Inverary. “This area is home,” he said. “I went to high school at Sydenham.” Day in and day out, Dan Taft returns to his post. He comes prepared. He rides a bicycle to work, with a pack and lawn chair attached to his back. When it rains, an umbrella accompanies the gear. Last week, with lawn chair unfolded, he sat under an umbrella in the pouring rain, waiting for his young charges. Like a sailor guiding a raft across dangerous waters, he gets children from side A to side B of the street. Twenty-five years of this. That’s a lot of protecting and a lot of caring. Watching children cross at Taft’s location on Welborne Avenue, you’ll see a ritual that’s developed for the kids. They like to high-five his stop sign. “That started years ago,” he said. “It just seems to get passed on from year to year.” Taft attended college in London for a mechanical engineer technical design program. He graduated as a mechanical draftsman. Unfortunately, his graduation in the late 1980s coincided with the time when computer system design entered the scene. “Draftsmen were replaced by computers,” said Taft. “But by the time I gradu-

ated, I realized that wasn’t what I wanted to do.” He took a job as a night cleaner at McDonald’s. He applied for a crossing guard position to fill out his income. “I didn’t expect to work this long as a crossing guard,” he said. “But it’s a job I really enjoy. I’ve actually started to see a second generation of kids.” When he started his work at the west end McDonald’s and Welborne Avenue Public School he lived downtown. He now lives in the west end.

“I cycled back and forth three times a day,” he said. “I got in pretty good shape. The only difficulty I have is the weather. I don’t mind the winter. I dress for it.” He likes to spend time snowboarding at

Calebogie in the winter. “But I don’t like the extreme heat we get sometimes later in June,” he added. He said that, unlike some of his colleagues around the city, he’s never had to report a driver. If there’s any trouble, it’s that people are too polite and stop before he even puts up his stop sign. “That’s not a bad thing,” he said. “This whole area is a nice community. You get to know people who live around here. I get invited to Christmas parties and endof-year parties. It’s funny, I’ve been here longer than most of teachers.” Taft loves to travel. He tends to go on vacation during the March break or the summer. “They gave me a month off one year so I could go to Australia,” he said. “I’ve been to Greece, the Caribbean and Bermuda a couple of times.” He’s also a photographer and loves the Kingston region. “There’s a creek near where I live,” he said. “Every spring during migrations, I take pictures of warblers. In the winter, I go to Amherst Island and Wolfe Island to photograph snowy owls. One year I saw 12 owls.” His family has a cottage near Westport, another great location for photographers. Taft is also an avid reader and particularly enjoys the works of John Irving. He rhymes off other authors like horror fiction’s Peter Straub, cyberpunk’s William Gibson, and masters of thrills, Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. He’s in a book club that includes some teachers and neighbours of the school as members. This fellow is a virtual Renaissance man. He enjoys critiques by Stephen Colbert and Bill Maher. He loves music and recently attended the Diana Krall and

Great Big Sea concerts in Kingston. He’s fond of Kingston’s jazz festival and Ottawa’s blues festival, as well as classic rock concerts like ones held in Belleville. He enjoys fine food, particularly Indian. He also cooks. His specialties include his own rye bread, Indian naan bread, cooking on a George Foreman grill and making beaver tails. Over the years, he’s kept in touch with high school friends. That’s been helped through the Internet and social media, especially Facebook. “We sometimes get together to play pool at Raxx,” he said. Taft likes to attend his annual family reunion, held near Boston. Here’s a quirky bit of trivia that commands bragging rights: Dan Taft is a distant relative of William Howard Taft, 37th President of the U.S., who served from 1909 to 1913. Boston remains the home of Dan’s favourite hockey team. “When I was growing up, everyone around me was a Leafs or Habs fan,” he said. “But when the Bruins won the cup in ’71, that was great. Bobby Orr was everything.” He rather enjoyed last year’s Stanley cup win. He has no plans on leaving his post at Kingston’s school on Welborne Avenue. “It’s a perfect job,” he said. “I like doing it and don’t ever need to stop. It’s fun watching kids grow. I know most of the parents. One of the things I’ve been told many times is that the parents feel their children are safe because I’m here. So many things can happen to kids and parents like to know someone is keeping an eye out for their children.” The world needs more people like this fellow. You’re a good man, Dan Taft.

EMC Entertainment - A local Kingston childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s band needs your help and support. HEY KIDS!, which is made up of five Kingston musicians, has entered The Great Kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; CBC Viewer Voted Song Search contest and they need your votes. The bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two vocalists, Brendan Richmond, a.k.a. Big B, and Pete Rae, a.k.a. Captain Foot, have been making music together for years but only recently switched to kids tunes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been making music for about 17 years together and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been in various rap projects together. The kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; music project has been in the works for about three years and it is something that has finally come together in the form of an album and a band,â&#x20AC;? explained Richmond. Richmond and Rae are joined by three other band mates, Jamie Walker, a.k.a. Mr. Nuts, on guitar; Chris Hall, a.k.a. Mrs. Nuts, on bass; and Mark Fraser, a.k.a. Fuzzy, on drums. The group was encouraged to join the CBC contest by friends. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A bunch of our friends pointed the contest out to us. We thought it was perfect for us and a great way to try to get our name out and get a bit more exposure nationally,â&#x20AC;? said Richmond. This is the first time they have entered a contest like this and it comes soon after releasing their first album in January of this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve entered battle of the bands as different groups in the past but this is our first national contest and the first time we have entered a childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

music contest,â&#x20AC;? added Richmond. The contest currently consists of about 70 different entries, but that number will be narrowed down significantly when voting closes on May 8. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After about a month of voting they narrow it down to three and then a few CBC personalities pick a fourth entry and then those four finalists will be submitted back out to the voting world,â&#x20AC;? explained Richmond. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the end the prize is pretty great, you get to perform at a childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music festival in Toronto as part of [Kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; CBC Days], which would definitely be awesome exposure for whoever wins. They also produce a video for the song of the winner. Then the video will air on [Kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; CBC].â&#x20AC;? There is also some incentive for voters too. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When people vote, they enter a contest to win a trip to Toronto with their family for the concert. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good way to get people to vote,â&#x20AC;? said Richmond, who also reminds people that they can vote every day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are allowed to vote once a day, so we want to try to keep people motivated to keep coming back. We have no way of tracking the voting so we are hoping that we are doing well.â&#x20AC;? The entire experience has been a lot of fun for Richmond and his band mates and the best part, for them, is performing and seeing the kids react. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The whole experience of making childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music is a really interesting challenge. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve slowly learned what kids like and what they respond to best. The most enjoyable part is the performance; we get to dress up in funny costumes and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really awe-
