Safe properties bylaw back with ‘minimum maintenance’ aspect added By Craig Bakay Reporter

The real Farmtown Pg. 18

EMC News —“We have to show common sense — if we have one bylaw that says you have to let the grass grow and another that says you have to cut it, that’s not common sense, that’s nonsense,” said Coun. Norm Guntensperger at the regular meeting of Central Frontenac Council last week in Sharbot Lake. Guntensperger was responding to staff’s presentation of a proposed Property Safety and Minimum Maintenance Bylaw which is being floated as an alternative to a Property Standards Bylaw

and was suggested last year primarily by groups in the Arden area. The Minimum Maintenance part is a new addition. “There is a lot of power in a bylaw like this,” Guntensperger said. “And it still seems designed for urban areas. “Our Official Plan stresses that we’re a ‘natural area’ and we require lakefront to be natural, but this bylaw seeks to outlaw long grass as well as brush, clippings and rodents — which are a big part of our natural environment. “To reflect our Official Plan, it should be the person with long grass complaining about mani-

cured lawns.” However compelling his arguments, Guntensperger was something of a lone voice in opposition to the proposed bylaw. “If we have someone growing 100 acres of nothing but thistles, we should have the authority to go in there,” said Coun. Tom Dewey. “There is the Weed Act for that,” said bylaw enforcement officer Ken Gilpin. Although he voted in favour of accepting the report, Coun. John Purdon was somewhat sympathetic to a couple of Guntensperger’s points. “You mow 100 acres,” Pur-

don said. “I’m wondering if this situation is urban versus rural.” Gilpin said that he’s dealt with “10-15 issues per year” for a total of 61 complaints over the past five years. “Of that, about 25 per cent are in the hamlets and mostly have to do with garbage or grass,” Gilpin said. “The majority of issues are in rural areas.” Mayor Janet Gutowski also rejected any suggestions of creating two sets of rules for urban and rural areas. “I think we would be reopening a can of worms if we try to treat two areas differently,” she said. “We have to treat every-

body the same.” She added that she’d like to see “boats destined for the scrap yard” added to the list of items prohibited from being kept on private property. For his part, Gilpin argued for the new bylaw, saying that “it expands on definitions and is complaint driven.” The draft bylaw is available for viewing on the township website, as part of the May 14 agenda under “Council.” Residents can make their feelings known to their councillors and comments received will be discussed at the regular June 25 meeting of Council.

EMC News - The Battersea Loughborough Lake Association is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year by planning for the future. The association is hiring the Centre for Canadian Watersheds and Canadian Wildlife Associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Love Your Lake program to survey its shoreline properties this summer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the first time I think that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve come our way,â&#x20AC;? says lake association president Nona Mariotti, explaining that the organization â&#x20AC;&#x201C; formerly known as the Shoreline Survey - has previously surveyed mostly more northern lakes. The program is intended to assess the health of lakes and encourages lakefront residents to take stewardship action. The survey will be completed from the water by staff from the centre. They will photograph each shore property, including the islands, and collect data on shoreline structures and access, wildlife and habitat areas, erosion types and location, aquatic and upland vegetation including buffers and restoration and protection opportunities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We all know now that we all have to become stewards of the lake,â&#x20AC;? Mariotti says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a lot of protection for our lakes anymore, so we really do have to take care of it to guarantee that it remains healthy.â&#x20AC;? She notes that certain things, such as non-property owners visiting the lake to boat and fish, are admittedly out of the associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s control. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s their lake too,â&#x20AC;? Mariotti says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, with transients you tend to get a fair amount of invasive species [zebra muscles, weeds, etc]. So we know we have to contend with that, but perhaps if each of us does one or two little things for our shorelines to protect it, that adds up with over 400 shoreline people.â&#x20AC;? The idea to conduct this kind of survey has been on the minds of association members for some time now. In the fall of 2011, they organized a pilot project, which surveyed the properties of 14

volunteers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We really tried to do something with the pilot and we were fortunate, but it was a windy day, so we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get as close to shore as we would have liked,â&#x20AC;? Mariotti says. Still, the survey resulted in some helpful suggestions. For example, some residents were encouraged to consider a floating dock instead of a permanent one when the time comes to replace it, or to plant natural buffers between the lake and manicured lawns. Love Your Lakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s survey will provide more detailed assessments and suggestions to all waterfront property owners. An individualized report will be confidentially issued to each resident, and the Lake Association will receive a generalized report on the overall status of Loughborough Lake. In order to address any questions and concerns property owners might have about the survey, the association is holding an information session June 8 from 10 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 11:30 a.m. at the Loughborough Inn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to let everybody know as much about it as possible and feel comfortable with it,â&#x20AC;? Mariotti says. She explains that other lakes have encountered situations of landowners feeling upset and offended as the result of these surveys being conducted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not here to criticize their property, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here to help them make their property a contributor to a healthy lake,â&#x20AC;? Mariotti says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to have them upset that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking at their property, even though weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not on their property, [weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just evaluating it from a boat out on the lake].â&#x20AC;? She adds, however, that if someone truly objects to the idea theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to force it, thought the association does not expect

Sydenham High School puts on production of Office Hours out there and stage it for an audience.” While the process hasn’t been easy, all of the participants in the play have been dedicated to getting the production together and making it as good as possible. “We’ve done everything ourselves; the casting, the set design, the set constructions, the advertising and the acting and directing has been entirely student run.

then a bunch of volunteers that have helped out with set construction. Overall we probably have about 20 people who have given their time to this play and have helped it get up and running. It has been an amazing experience,” said Bell. All of the proceeds from the play will go to Drew Cumpson, a former Sydenham High student that suffered a body surfing injury in 2011 that left him in a

wheelchair. “We’ve done a few fundraising events for him in the past at the school, but this year it was clear that nothing was going to be planned, so we thought we’d donate our proceeds to him. He needs the money a lot more than we do and it’s really nice to be able to do something like this and give the proceeds to something beneficial.” The play runs from May 23-25 at 7

p.m. at Sydenham High School. The doors open at 6:30 p.m. and cost of entry is purely by donation. “We wanted everyone to be able to come and not have to worry about the price,” said Bell. “We just want people to enjoy the play. Everyone has worked so hard and it would be great to have a big audience to appreciate all of that hard work, and I think if people come out to see the play they will not regret it.”

EMC Entertainment - Spring is generally the time of year for a multitude of high school play productions, but this year, due to the strike and lack of teacher time dedicated to extracurricular activities, many schools have been without these spring staples. Jesse Bell, a senior at Sydenham High School, didn’t want to go without a play this year and took it upon himself to organize one with his fellow students. “We feared that there would be no production this year without the teachers helping, but my friend Jacob Sharpe and I decided that we wanted to do it. Many students were very interested in doing a production this year and it was in high demand to make it happen, so we thought we’d go for it and see what we could do.” Bell only started participating in school productions last year, but after only one season he was hooked. “I was actually president of the Drama Club this year before all of the extracurricular activities were shut down, and I’ve always had an interest in drama but I never got involved until last year and I really enjoyed it.” After a little bit of organization, it was decided that Bell and his group would perform Norm Foster’s play Office Hours. “We wanted to choose a play that was simple, but still well written and entertaining. We also wanted to keep it local and that is why we chose Norm Foster’s play Office Hours. He is a Canadian playwright. He wrote a really, really funny play and we are all excited to get From left: Taylor Drake, Bryar Vuyk and Leah Gurr in a scene from ‘Office Hours’

In Our Opinion

Sure thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scrapping going on at county, big deal they lowered taxes Craig Bakay Reporter

editorial@theheritageemc.ca

EMC Editorial - Just when you thought it was safe to go back to county council . . . Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you wonder if this was what the politicians who clamoured for changes at Frontenac County Council had in mind when they pressured the previous council to add four members a couple of years ago? It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that long ago that county council meetings were rather routine, pretty dull affairs. Only the mayors of the four member townships sat on council and it was often a struggle to get one story out of a meeting, let alone two or three that people would actually read. But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all changed, and despite the fact that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a lot of argey-bargy down in Glenburnie of late, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth pointing out (again) that there have been a lot of things happen in this councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mandate that actually benefit residents. Back in the days when Phil Leonard, Bill McDonald, Stan Johnston and Jim Vanden Hoek were the only voters at the table (there were a lot

fewer staffers involved then too, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another column), county council, or the Frontenac Management Board as it was called, shortly after abomination (oops, meant to say amalgamation) didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really do much other than approve the budgets of the ambulance service and Fairmount Home. There was that misguided attempt to get some economic stimulus going with a cockamamie scheme to build an â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;artists retreatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; that even the flakey artists of the county thought was a dippy idea, but essentially they just bought ambulances and counted the number of nurses. Oh, and they liked to raise taxes by about two per cent each year too. Not that that was a bad idea really because Frontenac County residents enjoyed a pretty reasonable tax rate and a modest increase each year allowed the county to build up some impressive reserves. Fast forward to 2007, 2008, 2009 or so. A number of township councillors started looking towards Glenburnie with skeptical eyes. (The fact that the county wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sharing a bunch of federal Gas Tax money with them wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have had anything to do with it, now would it?) People like Jim Beam in North, Bob Harvey and Bill Snyder in Cen-

tral and Dave Hahn and Bill Robinson in South started making noise. To appease these folks, county council came up with the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;jointâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; council meeting which, despite including dinner (which was usually pretty decent), only served to fan the flames as the township councillors, while invited to the meeting, were not allowed to participate. Before long, in order to appease the elected masses, the county council of the day hired a firm to recommend changes to council, all of which they rejected after paying a whopping sum for the report, and then council preceded to add another member of council from each township. And the fireworks began, lit by Janet Gutowskiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s refusal to step down as Warden. Wellsir, look at the tax rate from the county this year. Believe it or not, they actually lowered the ask. Add to that the fact that the Gas Tax money is now all flowing to the townships for roads and bridges (what the feds told us they were creating it for in the first place) and the county is even starting to look at how much they really need in reserves. Sounds like progress to me, even if some bleeding heart liberal types seem to think everybody should just â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;play nice.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Sometimes you do have to break a few eggs to make an omelette.

Dusting off the olâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; baseball glove Kristen Coughlar Assistant Editor

kcoughlar@theheritageemc.ca

EMC Editorial â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t truly played baseball in around 15 years. I played softball for a number of years in my youth, as a pitcher and first-baseman, but I hung up my cleats so to speak in and around the age of 14. As I write this edition of Coughlarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s corner, I am just hours away from making my return to the baseball diamond. At the end of April, I decided to sign up for a sport with the Kingston Sport and Social Club. I thought the club would provide a good opportunity for me to meet some new people and fit a bit of exercise into my busy weekly schedule. I have a gym membership, and while I hate to admit it, I rarely use it. I thought I might hold myself more accountable if I were to join an activity where others

would depend on my attendance. As I was deciding which sport to enroll in, it was a toss-up between baseball and volleyball, another favourite from my younger years. Baseball won out. At the moment, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m questioning why. As I said above, I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t â&#x20AC;&#x153;trulyâ&#x20AC;? played baseball in 15 years, but I did attempt a brief return to the sport a few years ago. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go well. It was the annual Amherstview Puck â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Ball tournament. My friend and colleague, Rob, invited me to play. I was excited at the chance to dust off the olâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; glove. That excitement quickly faded following my first at-bat. I made contact with the ball and was making my way to first base when my right knee locked in place, causing me to fall into an everso graceful mid-air flip and land on my back. The damage to my knee wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t prettyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the swelling was reminiscent in size to that of a large grapefruit. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never quite been the same. So, as you can imagine, as I prepare for my first KSCC recreational baseball

game Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a little anxious. Will my first at-bat result in another injury? Will I be rushed to hospital unable to finish this column tomorrow morning? I guess weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find out. This morning, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy to report that I survived my first full game of baseball in 15 years. As I expected, I was not in top form, and my pre-game prediction that I would strike-out during my first at-bat was bang on. I also chose to avoid being struck by a ball travelling at the speed of light rather than attempting to catch it, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ok. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure my teammates probably thought I had never donned a glove before, or picked up a bat, but by the end of the game, I was starting to get back in the swing of things, and my anxiety was beginning to dissipate. In the end we got creamed, but I had a lot of fun reacquainting myself with the game and getting to know my new teammates. I have no doubt moving forward that both the team and I will continue to improve. Heck, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just happy to have made it to game two.

EMC Editorial - Before a couple gets married in a church, they are usually required to sit down with the priest for several sessions of pre-marital counselling. Presumably, the intent is to ensure they have a clear understanding of the serious commitment they are undertaking by promising to devote their lives to one another. We say skip the priest, and make them hang out with some diehard Toronto Maple Leafs fans for a few high-stakes games instead. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face it: no group of people on earth understands the bittersweet reality of â&#x20AC;&#x153;for better or worseâ&#x20AC;? like Leafs Nation. On second thought, leave out the â&#x20AC;&#x153;betterâ&#x20AC;? part. Last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heartbreaking game seven loss to the Boston Bruins epitomizes the emotional rollercoaster Leafs fans have been riding since 1967. (And letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face it: most current Leafs fans probably werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even born when the team won its last Stanley Cup.) There is absolutely no way in hell any other team in the National Hockey League could possibly be up 4-1 with 10 minutes to go in the third period and still lose. Nope. Only the Toronto Maple

Leafs can pull off that remarkable feat. Even non-Leafs fans felt pain on behalf of their blue-and-white clad friends when Boston tied it up at 4-4 with less than a minute to go. There are no two ways about it: the game was awful. Despite it all, Leafs fans continue their unwavering commitment to optimism. They may be heartbroken, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still proud of the team. Popular radio host Jian Ghomeshi summed up this mentality nicely in a tweet: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Young Leafs team played this series with pride & heart. Valiant. Congrats, boys. The city will be with you next year.â&#x20AC;? To most of us, this attitude would have been understandable if they had lost, say, 5-3 in a somewhat one-sided game seven. But in light of how things actually played out? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s some admirable loyalty there. Admirable or foolish â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you be the judge. Either way, we can all learn something from Leafs Nation about optimism and commitment. It may not always be the most logical combination, but, like love and marriage, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have one without the other.

Marking tragic anniversary costly for taxpayers By: Jeff Maguire Columnist

EMC Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; This week I am going to bring you up to date with regard to an ongoing story which has reached an expensive conclusion for Canadian taxpayers. I have written about this twice previously in recent years. The Canadian Museum of Civilization, located in the Hull sector of Gatineau, is currently preparing an exhibition on the tragic story of the ocean liner â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Empress of Irelandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The displays, which are scheduled to open to the public next year, will coincide with the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the vessel in the St. Lawrence River in 1914. The 99th anniversary is coming up later this month. In the early morning hours of May 29, 1914 the Empress sank near Rimouski, Quebec after colliding with the Norwegian collier â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Storstadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in thick fog. The 14,000 ton ship capsized and sank in just 15 minutes taking 1,012 people to a watery grave. Among the dead were 840 passengers. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eight more than the number of passengers who perished when the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Titanicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; famously struck an iceberg and sank in the Atlantic, off the coast of Canada, two years earlier. The centennial of the Titanic tragedy was observed on April 15 of last year and made news around the world. The reason Titanic had a greater loss of life (more than 1,500 perished) than the Empress is because she carried far more crew members. More people to care for the needs of her well heeled passengers! The Empress was mainly an immigrant ship which brought ordinary people

to the New World. Her sinking was our nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest maritime disaster. Yet in typical Canadian fashion the name and the tragic story of the big ship isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t well known. I blame that partly on a system that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t teach enough of our young people Canadian history. Along with our characteristic low-key approach to publicizing or even talking about Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own triumphs and tragedies! I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe in disturbing ship wrecks. But at least some of the artifacts which had already been taken from the submerged Empress will be put to some practical use, helping teach history. My wife Kathleen and I regularly travel by air between Canada and Europe. The simplicity of modern jet travel stands in sharp contrast to the difficult ocean passage for immigrants in the 18th, 19th and early 20th Centuries. Countless people traveled by ship from Liverpool and other ports in the United Kingdom and Ireland to begin new lives in Canada. Family connection Among them were my late maternal grandparents. They were both children when they left Liverpool for Canada, but on separate voyages. They met much later as young adults in Chatham, Ontario which is the hometown of both my mother and my wife. While my grandfather Archibald â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Artâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Watson was a native of Belfast, Northern Ireland, my grandmother Beatrice â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Beaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (nee Hardy) was born in London, England in the shadow of Buckingham Palace. She came to Canada with her parents and three of her siblings in 1914, just months before the outbreak of World War I. She was a few weeks away from her fourth birthday at the time she

left her native England. My grandma, who died in June 1995 (on her 86th birthday), told me she really didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember much about the long and exhausting journey that eventually brought them to a new life. Because of lack of good record keeping in those days there is some discrepancy as to the exact dates. What is known is that the Hardy family came to Canada aboard the Empress of Ireland. What makes it especially interesting for us is that my grandmother always said the Empress tragedy occurred while the vessel was returning to Liverpool on the home leg of the same voyage that brought her and the rest of the Hardy family to Canada. That much she was absolutely certain about! Next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 100th anniversary observances will be keyed by the planned display at the Canadian Museum of Civilization. Some controversy swirls around the exhibition. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because the key artifacts were salvaged from the submerged wreck by Montreal diver Philippe Beaudry during expeditions before laws were enacted to regulate the practice. In a front page story April 29 the Ottawa Citizen newspaper revealed the museum paid Beaudry $1.75 million to acquire his collection. The artifacts carried an appraised value of $3.075 million. It is thought a tax receipt from the federal government may have accounted for the remainder? The acquisition, financed in part by a $425,000 grant from the Department of Canadian Heritage, concludes protracted negotiations between Beaudry and the federal government. Included in the sale is the shipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brass fog bell which is considered â&#x20AC;&#x153;the jewel of the collection.â&#x20AC;?

Go from this...

It alone was appraised at $1.75 million. Other artifacts include navigation equipment, furnishings and personal objects, china and silverware, documents and books and even a remnant of the ship itself. The sale of salvaged objects from death ships such as Titanic and the Empress of Ireland always draws flak from critics who argue historic wrecks should be left undisturbed as a tribute to the dead. I agree with that thinking! The items involved should have been left where they were. The vesselâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final resting place was rediscovered by divers in 1964, some four kilometres from the shore of Pointeau-Père, Quebec which is the home of a regional museum commemorating the sinking. The location is 500 kilometres northeast of Montreal. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certainly not the fault of the present government. Past administrations bear the shame of ignoring the importance of the wreck and allowing the Empress to be visited by divers who stripped the vessel of untold artifacts (numbering in the hundreds) and sold them to the highest bidder. Clearly our government used tax dollars for the same purpose, something I question. Historic site It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until 1999 that restrictions were put in place to end the practice. In August 2009 the present Canadian government officially declared the wreck a national historic site. Diving there is now prohibited by law! I have watched just one television documentary about the Empress of Ireland, an excellent PBS production made in 2000 and featuring famed American oceanographer Dr. Robert Ballard.

It was Ballard who led the joint American-French expedition that, on Sept. 1, 1985, located Titanicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final resting place south-east of Newfoundland. To his credit Ballard is not a believer in disturbing shipwrecks. Especially those in which so many died! He is an explorer, but says such sites are â&#x20AC;&#x153;ocean graveyards that should be left as they are.â&#x20AC;? I know he is appalled at the â&#x20AC;&#x153;lootingâ&#x20AC;? of the Titanic site that has occurred over the course of several decades. He was equally angered by the massive haul of artifacts from Empress of Ireland which lies in just 130 feet of water, within easy reach of divers. Due to its depth the Titanic wreck is accessible only to those in mini subs. In something of an irony, numerous recreational divers died during descents to the Empress which developed a reputation for being very dangerous. I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sad the Canadian government took so long to act, allowing private individuals to reap a harvest of items that should have been left where they were. I totally subscribe to Ballardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s feeling that the Empress of Ireland wreck is a gravesite which shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be disturbed. As Ballard says in the documentary on the Empress, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a piece of history. Everything removed diminishes it.â&#x20AC;? As for my familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s connection to the ship it is estimated today that some one million Canadians are descendants of immigrants who arrived in this country aboard Empress of Ireland. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m one of them! If you have any comments or questions for Jeff Maguire, he can be reached by email at jeffrey.maguire@rogers. com.

Frontenac Council settles on 1.5 per Great only begins to describe this Central cent property tax increase movie masterpiece By Craig Bakay Reporter

My Take BY MARK HASKINS

EMC Entertainment - Baz Luhrmann takes us into a world of excess, greed, passion and desire. He takes us into F. Scott Fitzgerald’s America during the roaring twenties, and into the heart of his tragic romance. Luhrmann takes us into The Great Gatsby. Nick Carraway (Toby Maguire) is our storyteller. He’s Daisy’s (Carey Mulligan) cousin, and an innocent who has been drawn into a world for which he is utterly unprepared. It’s a world of wealth and

power and it sweeps him away. Daisy is the beautiful innocent who has long since lost her innocence, but whose beauty is no less diminished. She has found herself in a loveless marriage to Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton). Tom is one of the wealthy elite, but he struggles with no longer being the star athlete and big man on campus. At the centre of their universe, like a blazing sun, is J. Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio). He is a man of unimaginable wealth and power, but also of secrets. No one seems to truly know who he is or where his wealth comes from –  though he does begin to confide in Nick. Nick soon learns all of Gatsby’s secrets, but the biggest one of all is Gatsby’s love for Daisy. All that Gatsby does or has done has been to win her heart. Nothing else matters to Gatsby. Daisy is the last piece that will finally make his life complete. The Great Gatsby is a truly astounding film. Baz Luhrmann has an incredible sense of style and a distinctive vision,

and the will to make them real. Gatsby had a surreal quality to it. Colours are brighter, everything is larger than life, and somehow more real than reality. Each shot and scene becomes this dazzling piece of moving art. Yet the story is never lost in all the wonder and spectacle. In fact everything including the music and the 3-D effects are carefully crafted to enhance and highlight each performance, each line and each element of the story. Tobey Maguire is a remarkable talent. His sensitivity and range of emotions gives the story its heart and its soul. Carey Mulligan is mesmerizing. Her beauty, her grace, her smile and that touch of sadness that lingers in her eyes wrenches your heart. This is the performance of her career. Tom Buchanan is the film’s villain. He’s the guy you want to hate. He’s the guy you want to see bested by Gatsby. Joel Edgerton commits himself both body and soul to the role. In so many ways this is Leonardo DiCaprio’s film. He steps into the role of Gatsby and he commands your attention. Just as all the other characters in the story are drawn to him so is the audience. His charm and his charisma are magnetic. His confidence and determination are inspiring. It’s a great performance. Baz Luhrmann has once again used his unique vision to create a spellbinding masterpiece.  Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

EMC News — Central Frontenac Treasurer Michael McGovern gave council two options when tendering his 2013 budget at last week’s regular council meeting in Sharbot Lake. Option A included a 1.5 per cent total tax rate increase with a $6,151,064 levy, which translates (after factoring in MPAC property assessments) to an average increase of $93 per property. Option B included a 2.5 per cent total tax rate increase (which had been council’s original direction to staff for the budget) with a $6,241,064 levy, which translates into an average increase of $115.30 per property. Council decided on Option A. McGovern urged council to approve Option B, which would have allowed for $90,000 to be placed in an infrastructure deficit reserve. “I realize it’s a tough choice,” McGovern said. “(But) my advice is to go with the two and a half per cent increase,” he said. “I think when the infrastructure study (which is mandated by the Provincial Government) comes out, we’ll be glad we did.” Coun. John Purdon urged his colleagues to consider going even further with cuts. “We did say 1.5 per cent at one meeting and 0.5 per cent at another point,” Purdon said. “Education taxes have kept going down and the county rate dropped this year, but our increase in assessment means people’s taxes are increasing regardless.” However, other councillors were prepared to increase taxes further if it meant certain things would happen. “I think we should put more gravel on roads,” said Coun. Bill Snyder.

McGovern did do some fancy financial footwork to save some projects, such as shifting $152,000 slated for a new brusher/mower to a different section of the budget, and slashed several items such as the materials budget, contributions to reserves, budgets earmarked for a planning report and the proposed multiuse centre, and a report on the condition of Hinchinbrooke Public School which the township has been looking at as a possible community centre/library. ••• Council was sympathetic to a request from a citizens group in Parham asking the grass be cut on the site of an old store at the turn in Road 38, but in the end, the best they could do was promise to look into who actually owns the site and report back at the next council meeting. Coun. Bill Snyder argued strenuously that the township should cut the grass but others on council were concerned about setting a precedent. “If we let this go, it would be a real eyesore,” Snyder said. “I’m quite serious about this.” “I agree it should be looked after,” said Mayor Janet Gutowski. “But I’m not sure who owns it and I’m not sure how anxious I am to put this on taxpayers.” “I agree that I’d like to see it maintained but urge caution,” said Coun. John Purdon. “We have other properties like this in the township and if you start cutting the grass on one of them . . .” A citizens group led by Doris Campsell had been maintaining the property for 12 years.

Seniors playing some serious softball By Kelly Reid Correspondent

EMC Sports - For Mike Grosney and Kaz Gora, retirement years are not about gardening, golfing, or going down south. Or at least, it’s not only about those things. For these two, their golden years are about playing serious softball. Seven years ago, Grosney began a recreational league for anyone over 55 in the Kingston area. Now, he has players coming from as far away as Harrowsmith, Gananoque, and even Belleville. The league plays every Tuesday and Thursday morning for an hour and a half. “We play for fun, to get out and get a bit of exercise,” says Grosney. The first year, Grosney and Gora had just 16 players. Today, while numbers have grown, they are still inconsistent. “Our goal was to get a league of about five or six teams,” Grosney says. Unfortunately, they have yet to make it happen. “A lot of people don’t even know we’re playing here, that’s the problem,” Gora explains. Both men hope that by continuing to spread word about their league, more folks will make it out to the games. For now, until permanent teams are made, everyone rotates based on turnout. “We come, we have fun, we play on a different team each week, we meet new people each week,” says Grosney of the current format. “We have all abilities. Arthritis, bad shoulders, and more,” he continues, explaining that everyone can play. Both men and women are welcome, no matter their level of experience, and a mere t $10 covers their enrollment for the entire season. The end of season

includes an awards ceremony which includes such honours as best dressed, loudest, and quietest. “We play until it gets too cold,” Grosney explains. Generally, they call it quits in October. But both Grosney and Gora continue to play softball all winter long; Grosney plays in Arizona and Gora in Florida. Both men are impressed by the southern states’ commitment to supporting senior softball. In Arizona, Grosney says the senior league has over thousands of members. “Their diamonds are in major league condition,” says Gora of what it’s like to play in Florida. “Their city supports seniors.” Both men hope for Kingston to eventually provide such facilities, especially if the over-50 softball league grows in numbers. For now, the league is busying itself with tryouts for its all-star team, a travel group of 12 players that take on teams from Ottawa and elsewhere. Gora, who oversees the all-star team, is looking forward to this season’s games. “Our best players are as good as anyone in town,” he says. In fact, the all-star team is hoping to play the Kingston Police team at some point over the summer. The allstar team is sponsored by the Kingston Community Credit Union as well as Century 21. Of course, casual players not interested in competition games are more than welcome and, in fact, make up most of the league. Cathi Ubdegrove, for instance, was out for just her second game this

week. Though she used to coach girls Though new to the group, Cathi is al- plate, ready to take a swing. softball, Cathi, 61, now enjoys the ex- ready hooked.

It was Delegation after Delegation at Frontenac Islands Council meeting Correspondent

EMC News- Holding their council meeting in the Wolfe Island Community hall rather than the much smaller council chambers was a good idea considering the size of the crowd that had turned up. *1. Representing Frontenac County’s 150th Anniversary Planning committee, (South Frontenac’s) Phil Leonard and Jim VandenHoek advised council of the planning underway for the 2015 (3 day) anniversary event. “We have a great Frontenac community and we would like everyone to come together to celebrate it.” Leonard said. “ We are visiting all the communities and committees to encourage their participation.” Mayor Doyle suggested island groups who might be interested. VandenHoek reminded council of a 1988 well attended WI Country Festival, brought out the Lt. Governor, included a costume ball, tried to relive the past a bit. “That’s part of what we are trying to do in the county.” A questionnaire to raise interest and ideas has been issued for response by council and citizens. (available on the township’s web site and municipal buildings) *2. Council received a report from the County’s Sustainability Advisory committee. The committee will attend the June meeting on Howe Island. *3. KPMG’s Vicki Leakey outlined the Asset Management and Road Study, a provincial requirement to be completed by 2013 year end in order that the township remain eligible for provincial infrastructure funding ($21,000). “Every municipality must evaluate all of their assets in terms of

approved the first ($20,500) request from fire reserves. Regarding the 2nd request the WI Fire Department will confirm prices for a used larger tanker truck, to be presented at the July meeting on Wolfe Island. Information regarding use of Development Charge funds will also be clarified *6 Simcoe Islands Yelda Miedema presented a proposal to save the island’s Nine Mile Point Light House . He was looking for “an expression of interest” from Frontenac Islands Council that the township is “considering working” with the (NMPLPS) Nine Mile Point Lighthouse Preservation Society, a group of citizens wanting to save the lighthouse. The request was in order to meet the government June 1st deadline date for plans to be identified. Council agreed that the NMPPS may say the township “is considering” the NMPPS proposal, (with no commitment at this time). They will see the letter and proposal from the NMPPS proposal before it is submitted to DFO. The proposal was a partnership where Frontenac Islands would buy the lighthouse for $1.00 (becoming the legal organization owning the lighthouse) and the MPLPS, a non profit group (eligible for grants) become its caretakers, fund raising ,restoring, maintaining and preserving it voluntarily on an on-

going basis into the future. *7. Wolfe Island resident and business owner Marianne Anne Walker presented a case for maintaining the island’s Information Centre. Opened in 1988 (formerly operated by WIBTA) and was staffed by summer students and a few regular volunteers. She outlined tourist and visitor numbers, economic benefits to the community in providing information as well as providing toilet facilities. She indicated her willingness to undertake management of students. Mayor Doyle noted that there are fewer government supported student positions eligible for hire for this year. Councillor Springgay noted an increased number of public toilets (portapotties) available around the village. Ms Walker asked that the council support the salary of a student. Councillor Grant wondered aloud about county sustainability funding. Planner Gallivan indicated there are grants (not for salaries) he would look into. The cost to the community has always been pump outs .

*8. And finally there was a request made by WI Community Medical Clinic board members, Liz Crothers and Hugh Cowan, that Council approve a request for a Priority Loading Ferry Pass from MTO for use by ONE VEHICLE ( and a trained volunteer) every second Friday, to facilitate the transport of blood and other specimen samples from the Medical Clinic to the Life Labs patient care centre at 800 Princess Street and the vehicle’s return only if unable to board the next ferry coming back. Council approved the request. That was it for delegations… Around Town, Euchre , WI United Church Hall every Thur. at 7 pm. Coming events:*WI Horseshows , Community Centre Sat.

life expectancy costs and their current status (roads, trucks, buildings etc.) They want to know where you are in assets and road assessments, your 10 year game plan for replacement, and if there new projects in the works and how does that all fit. You have to do this to get provincial funding. We work together on long term strategy. Build your plan remembering that every year at budget time that plan may change, and determine how you are going to do it, build reserves etc”. Council accepted the KPMG proposal. Also accepted Interim CAO Burns’ asset management report and passed a further resolution that the AECOM fee will be prorated between Howe & Wolfe Islands. Leakey will assemble the final report from the road work, be done by the AECOM Group, and work with council and township staff. *4. WI Fire Chief Tim Hawkins and Deputy Chief Tom Berry were on hand to discuss the purchase of a “ a very good, essentially brand new, with safety and extras”‘ 1996 Rescue Unit from Front Line Fire . Chief Hawkins said taxpayers are asking why it should be paid for through donations and not by the township. “The township has never bought fire trucks but this is more than a fire truck (assist ambulance, etc) and I think it should be paid for out of Township reserves, ($20,500) $18,000 with tax back),” Councillor Grant said. “Sounds good” Mayor Doyle said. “I thought you were going to ask for a $300,00 fire truck. “. Hawkins quick retort , ”in a minute Mr. Mayor.” In fact they would like to look into a pumper truck utilizing reserve money, thus eliminating one pumper truck and one tanker. Council

DAYTRIPPER

The real Farmtown EMC Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a real place in the tangible world where kids and adults can learn about farms. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s called Farmtown Park in Stirling, Ontario. I regularly get requests to participate in games on Facebook. One of them is called Farm Town. Not sure how it works. I ignore all such requests and often block the sender from sending future communications to me. What person, who has any kind of a life, has time for these kinds of games? The place to learn about farm life is, well, on a farm. The textures of the land, the beautiful scents and sometimes stinky smells, the beauty of the landscape, the sounds of the wind and birds, along with pitch black skies with stars blazing at night are the starting points to learn about rural life. Nature is not a moral entity. Neither is nature immoral, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s simply amoral. Good weather can bring a bumper crop in the autumn. One bad storm or bout of freezing weather at the wrong time can wipe out a season. Just ask an apple farmer. Rural life is not quaint. Nor is it easy. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a hard life that farmers choose. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good life that gives benefits to all of us. The good folks of Hastings County are proud of their agricultural heritage. They created a museum to showcase their rural history. The 1986 International Plowing Match in Hastings sparked the idea for

a museum. That concept became a reality in 2000. One of the first things youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see when you enter Farmtown is a carved wooden sign: â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you ate today, thank a farmer.â&#x20AC;? It reminds us that food doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t magically appear from nowhere onto our grocery shelves. The apples donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put themselves in baskets and the chickens donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t commit suicide and jump into nice plastic packaging. Farmers do the work thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s become invisible to many people. Not only is there a human disconnection for many people in our â&#x20AC;&#x153;virtualâ&#x20AC;? world, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a disconnect between the kitchen table and the source of food on it. Some of my family friends have a farm in New York State. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always a joy to visit. Farm kids have a different perspective on life. For a start, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a trust in the community. Our friends donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have locks on their doors. I know that if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m travelling and too tired to make it home, I can always pull off at their farm and have a nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sleep. Doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re home or not, the doorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s open. Imagine that in Kingston or Toronto? Not likely. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Would you go get us some eggs, hon?â&#x20AC;? has a whole different meaning when a six-year-old walks out to the barn and gathers some eggs from freerange and grain fed chickens. Compare that to opening a refrigerator door and grabbing the carton of eggs, which may be several weeks away from the original source. On the farm thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

a connection between what we eat and where it came from. And thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no need to check the â&#x20AC;&#x153;best beforeâ&#x20AC;? date when the eggs are still warm. Farmtown celebrates rural life and the importance of agriculture and the farmers who provide us with food. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a place to experience what agriculture and farm life were like in the past. The exhibits are diverse and cover a range of issues important to agriculture. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see displays detailing the development of farm machinery.

from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, which is giving funds to upgrade buildings, introduce a sound system and update audio-visuals. I shake my head in wonder at our own local foibles of expensive consultants, arenas and upgrades, all at the public expense. In Stirling, I stood amidst an amazing working museum that used no taxpayer funding to establish itself and has no bureaucrats involved in upkeep. Your visit to this museum will provide one of the nicest surprises of spring/summer. It’s something the folks of Hastings County can be proud of. Directions: Take Highway 401 west from Kingston. Exit at Highway 62 at Belleville, and go north. Turn left at Foxboro-Stirling Road. It runs into West Front Street at Stirling. The museum is on the Stirling Fair Grounds on the left side after you pass through Stirling. Hours: Farmtown Park is open from the Victoria Day Weekend until Labour Day, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with the last admission at 3 p.m. and on weekends in September. Totally accessible and we have wheel chairs. Cost: adults, $8; seniors, $7; students, $6; children (5 – 12), $4; Family, $24. http://agmuseum.ca/, (613) 3950015

All the large grocery chains would have buyers at an auction. When the clock hand started to turn, it ran counter clockwise with prices listed in decreasing amounts. In other words, the longer you waited to hit the button on your table, the lower the price indicated on the clock dial. But, the longer you waited, the greater the chance that someone else would hit their button before you did. After each lot was sold, the clock was reset and the process started again for the next lot of cheese. Canadian cheese was highly valued overseas, especially in England. Cheese stamped with a special imprint proving it originated in Canada fetched premium prices. After the Second World War, the government of England instituted restrictive import policies and placed a high tariff on imported cheese. That ended much of the market for Canadian cheese. Besides the dairy displays at the museum, in the harvest and tillage buildings you’ll see machines used on homesteads and more recent farms. Watch for the wooden thresher, in almost perfect condition, from the early 1900s. In the antique tractor building, there are 40 tractors on display dating back to the early days of mechanized agriculture. As impressive as the museum is, so is the fact that it carries no debt and asks for no government support. The Antique vehicles and tractors museum was built and is maintained on display at Farmtown Park in by volunteers. Stirling. The only outside support comes Photo/Mark Bergin

Auditor gives clean bill of financial health to county in busy meeting By Craig Bakay Reporter

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201D; In an exhausting meeting that was only cut short by a 1 p.m. deadline, Frontenac County managed to address a considerable number of issues at its regular meeting last week in Glenburnie after a protracted battle as to the perceived conduct of Warden Janet Gutowski that concluded with a resolution to ask the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing to look into allegations made by Coun. David Jones. Council even managed to accept a report on homelessness (which the municipality was required to complete under provincial regulations) and the annual auditorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report on the state of its finances. As to the audit, Howard Allan of Allan and Partners not only gave Frontenac County a clean bill of financial health but also praised it as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The financial records in this case are excellent,â&#x20AC;? Allan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Your net financial assets at the end of the year are $2.5 million . . . and there are municipalities we audit that have a net financial debt.â&#x20AC;? Allan also praised the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s low tax rate but felt obligated to point out that at least part of the reason was because â&#x20AC;&#x153;you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any roads.â&#x20AC;? While many of the matters dealt with were of the housekeeping variety, a couple of things have the potential to become ongoing stories throughout the summer. For example, at the March 20 meeting, Coun. Gary Davison presented a resolution asking for a report as to why the doors were always locked at Frontenac County Council when most

municipal buildings in Eastern Ontario are not. In a report prepared by Paramedic Chief Paul Charbonneau, Occupational Health Nurse Bonnie Carter and Human Resources-Labour Relations Specialist Colleen Hickey, staff responded: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Over the past decade, the need to increase security measures at the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Administration Offices has occurred twice, to address very specific threats.â&#x20AC;? The first threat occurred in the fall of 2004, the report said, when an employee threatened to shoot and kill the CAO and a paramedic supervisor. The employee was arrested by the Kingston Police Forceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Emergency Response Team and subsequently charged. The employee was dismissed and a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;lockdownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; instituted. The second incident was in August of 2010 and the report cited three other subsequent incidences, including one with a â&#x20AC;&#x153;potentially volatile member of the public.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been led to believe that the locks were because of drugs stored on site,â&#x20AC;? said Coun. John Inglis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There seems to be an atmosphere of fear and paranoia since the incident (and) I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily agree with all the arguments.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It looks like weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not public-centric and want to keep people out,â&#x20AC;? said Coun. Denis Doyle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gone overboard.â&#x20AC;? The other issue that will be in for more discussion soon is the aspect of the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reserve funds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have always hoped we would get some strategic direction from council as to what councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s priorities are,â&#x20AC;? said Treasurer Marion Van Bruinessen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the absence of that direction, staff has used what we believe to be appropriate base on what other organizations have used.â&#x20AC;?

Stepping Up or Out?

Manufacturers offer wide selection of running boards, side-steps Brian Turner

Car Counsellor bjoeturner@hotmail.com

EMC Lifestyle - “Hi Brian, My wife is trying to convince me to put running boards on my Buick Enclave.  I have been on line and there are quite a few manufacturers. Have you any experience with this product?  Installation is less than an hour with no drilling-strictly bolt on. Finishes can be powder coated, paint to match the vehicle or aluminum both bright and satin.” Best regards, Gordon

Yes, the choice in running boards or side-steps can seem quite limitless when doing some web research.  And about the only thing longer than the list of different products is the range in price of these handy accessories.  My preference would be… (It’s a good time to declare a personal conflict here because I have a day job with an OEM dealership)… an authorized set of side-steps from GM’s own line of parts and accessories.  The reasons are important and can be revealed by applying a simple checklist to any manufacturer. Can you get replacement parts easily? Running boards get damaged like any other body part (sometimes easier because they can stick out from the bodyline) and any set you buy won’t be much of a deal if you have to pay for another entire set in the future just because an end-cap, tube or bracket got damaged. What’s the guarantee?  This is an important consideration when spending up to $1,000 or more for one accessory.   GM like most automakers will warranty their accessories up to three years (if installed new on a new vehicle). So that’s the benchmark, look for better not worse.  And how easy is it to get warranty repair service

if a defect arises? Stick with aluminum (chrome or painted) to reduce the risk of corrosion damage from our winters.  Painted units take the edge here, as it’s great to be able to touch up scratches with a spray balm. Don’t expect any good running board or tube step to stick out much from the body line (although there is a variety of styles) and therefore don’t expect to get your foot (or more importantly your wife’s foot) planted firmly on the step with the foot on a 90 degree approach to the bodyline of the vehicle. It won’t’ happen with GM’s line, or most others for that matter. These steps are designed to be approached on an angle, not straight on. The summer of chrome has officially started.  On Saturday and Sunday (May 25 and 26) the Rideau Lakes ACCCC Flea Market, Craft Sale & Car Show (on the 26th) takes place at the Lombardy Fairgrounds on Hwy. 15 – six kilometres southwest of Smiths Falls.  Check out www.rideaulakes-acccc.com for more details.  On Sunday, May 26, Denny’s Charity Show ‘n’ Shine rolls into South Keys, Ottawa from 4 p.m. until dusk.  Proceeds will go to Big Brothers / Big Sisters.

22 The Frontenac EMC - Thursday, May 23, 2013


Mynoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still looking for his 1948 Ford coupe EMC Lifestyle - Myno Van Dyke of Newcastle, Ontario, has been active in the old car hobby for nearly 50 years. He currently drives a â&#x20AC;&#x2122;58 Studebaker street rod, and every time he goes to a car show, he looks for a 1948 Ford coupe, wondering if he will find the one he bought (and later sold) 45 years ago. Here is his story: â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was July of 1967. I was 20 years old, working full time at Bell Telephone, and wanted an old car to fix up. More specifically, I wanted an old Ford, preferably a coupe. I heard about one near Courtice, Ontario, that had been left in an old farm drive shed. My friend Rick Dixon and I went to have a look. It was a very solid and essentially rust-free â&#x20AC;&#x2122;48 Ford coupe with a disassembled flathead V8 engine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Apparently a previous tenant had moved away in the middle of the night without paying his rent. He left behind two old vehicles, a 1938 Chev 4-door sedan and the 1948 Ford coupe. There was no ownership paper for either car but I quickly struck a deal for $50 for the Ford. My friend, Al Parrott from nearby Myrtle, had an old trailer and he agreed to haul the coupe to our farm in Ashburn with his fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2122;50 Chev pickup. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take long to realize the engine that came with the car was junk and in those days it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t too hard to find a replacement. I had gone to school with Noel Hamer and he had a â&#x20AC;&#x2122;52 Mercury panel truck with a good V8 engine. He sold me the truck and we hauled out the engine and bolted it

Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a photo of Myno Van Dykeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1948 Ford coupe the day he brought it home. into the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;48 Ford. It ran beautifully, and for the next few years the car was driven around our farm. At that time I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the inclination or talent to complete the restoration. I sold the car to my brother-in-law (at the time) Maurice Bois for $250. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Maurice put a set of dual exhausts on the car and painted it silver. It sat in his barn for quite a few years until he finally sold it. The present location of the car is unknown. It had no serial plate on the firewall. Its original colour was dark gray. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The old shed where the car was stored in 1965 is still there and now houses a business called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Spoiled Sports.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Each time I see a â&#x20AC;&#x2122;48 Ford coupe, I take a close look and always ask the owner about its history. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still hoping my first â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;coolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; car is still

around.â&#x20AC;? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m always looking for more stories. Email

KITCHEN KREATIONS

Kate Kristiansen

Handcrafted, natural and authentic award-winning sausages EMC Lifestyle - Michael McKenzie, and Ottawa native who now resides in Kingston with his wife, Megan, and their two children, Sawyer, 3, and Eloise, 11 months, is a nationwide success. His company, Seed to Sausage, has won the 2013 Ace Bakery Artisan Incubator Award for its cured meats. The Artisan Incubator is a celebration of the joys of artisan food, the importance of local, sustainable food producers and the vital contributions artisan entrepreneurs make to communities across Canada. Seed to Sausage won this award for its overall business and its development of quality products, specifically their chorizo and saucisson sec. Michael started curing meats as a hobby. After sharing his recipes with local chefs and friends, he heeded their advice and turned his passion into a business. He owns Seed to Sausage with his father Ken. They produce over 42 different artisan cured meat products. They make mouth-watering fermented sausage varieties, including garlic and red wine (which includes a bottle of Sandbanks Baco Noir red wine), apple sage, and maple walnut. In addition, they also produce salami, duck and specialty bacon. Their specialty bacon comes in flavours such as molasses and cracked black pepper, smoky chipotle chili, oldfashioned dry cured, and garlic juniper. “Simple honest food with exceptional quality is always our goal,” said Michael. “Take, for instance, our apple and sage sausages. I have someone hand pick the apples and peel them. While

other sausage makers may add premixed spices and water, we add nothing but pork, apples, and a bit of fresh apple cider.” Seed to Sausage’s receipt of the Ace Bakery Artisan Incubator Award is no small feat, as it is judged by top Canadian tasters such as: Anita Stewart, Canadian culinary activist, author and University of Guelph food laureate, among others – these experts know good food. The handmade meat production business is run from its processing plant at 12821, Hwy 38, in Titchborne. This family-owned business gets some help from Michael’s mother, Anna, who assists in the kitchen and with product packaging. She also looked after her grandchildren while Megan opened the retail store. On May 18, the retail store (located at the same site) opened for the season, offering many new delicious finds for their fans. Seed to Sausage cured meats works hard to ensure exceptional quality in everything they produce by sourcing good, fresh ingredients and, whenever possible, that which is hormone and antibiotic free. “Not only is our range of specially crafted meats available, but we are excited to be carrying other premium Canadian products, such as those from Vancouver Island Salt Company, a fellow winner in the Artisan Incubator Awards,” said Michael. “We like to buy local, but we do not have the ocean nearby to harvest salts from, so why not make this quality Canadian product available here locally for our customers

to purchase.” The Seed to Sausage retail store is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Come the end of June, summer hours will be in effect and the retail store will be open Wednesday to Sunday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. There will be a host of gourmet food items available. I often cook with Seed to Sausage cured meats. Check out their website, seedtosausage.ca, for a full list of products, or ask your grocery store to stock these items. I can assure you that if you are not a fan of sausage, you will be after one bite of these. They are the best sausages I have ever eaten. I have incorporated Seed to Sausage chorizo in a complex and comforting dish from my favorite Spanish cookbook, Moro by Nigel Slater. Paella de cerdo con chorizo y espinaca (Rice with Pork, Chorizo and Spinach Serves 4 Ingredients: 7 tablespoons olive oil 350 g of pork fillet, halved lengthways, then sliced across roughly in 7mm stripes 120g “Seed to Sausage” Chorizo, sliced on an angle or into tiny little pieces 2 large Spanish onions, finely chopped 1 large green pepper, halved, seeded and finely chopped 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped 250g calasparra (paella) rice 1 teaspoon sweet smoked Spanish paprika 2 firoas peppers (a sweet earthy pepper)

or a green pepper, chopped and diced 900ml of chicken stock 500g spinach, washed and drained 1 lemon, cut in wedges sea salt and black pepper Directions: In a 30-40cm paella pan or frying pan, heat the olive oil over high heat, then stir-fry the pork for a few seconds so it is a little undercooked. Season the pork with salt and pepper. Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and put to one side. Turn down the heat to a low to medium temperature and fry the chorizo for a minute. Add the onion and green pepper and cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic to the onion and cook for a further 5-10 minutes. At this point the mixture should have caramelized and taste sweet. Stir the rice into the pan to coat in the flavor-some mixture for a minute. Now season with salt and pepper, this is the time to season the rice perfectly. Each grain of rice should lightly glisten with olive oil and yet

never seem greasy or too wet. Add the paprika and fioras peppers, drained of their water, followed by chicken stock, and simmer for 15 minutes or until there is a thin layer of liquid around the rice. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan or wok, briefly wilt the spinach with a little salt, either by braising or steaming, and put to one side with the pork fillet. Evenly scatter the pork over the rice followed by the spinach. With the back of a spoon gently push the pork and spinach partially into the oily liquid that remains at the bottom of the pan. Cover the paella tightly with foil and let it sit for 3-5 minutes. Serve lemon wedges and a tomato salad.

Aunt Lizzie’s strange gifts never served much use Mary Cook

Columnist

editorial@theheritageemc.ca

EMC Lifestyle - Father’s sister Aunt Lizzie, very wealthy we thought, lived in Regina. Once a year she came out to the homestead in Renfrew County, just to check up on her only brother, and as Mother said, to make sure the farm hadn’t slipped into the Bonnechere River.  Aunt Lizzie didn’t think Mother was good farm material.  She thought anyone who had lived most of her life in New York City, certainly wouldn’t amount a hill of beans in the backwoods of Renfrew County! Every time she came to visit, the house was in turmoil.  Everything had to be scrubbed within an inch of its life, and my sister Audrey and I had to give up our bed and the little washstand we shared at the top of the stairs.  Even the top had to be cleared off, so my collection of little stones I cherished...small little stones I picked up on the farm and which I loved dearly, had to be put in a little paper bag and tucked away for keeping in a safe place.  Audrey’s hand mirror and comb, too, had to find a new home for

Aunt Lizzie’s visit. Even though she was his sister, Father was always in a lather when Aunt Lizzie came for her yearly visit. She insisted on bringing him something which served no earthly purpose, and which she thought he shouldn’t live without. And often the hand-me-down box, usually included a present for Father which made little or no sense whatsoever. Like the kimono. Father had never laid eyes on a kimono before, but he insisted on wearing it when we had neighbours in for euchre one Saturday night.   Even Mother couldn’t talk him out of putting it on, but when Uncle Alec after dealing out the cards, asked Father what in tarnation he had on over his shirt and trousers, Father decided the kimono just wasn’t for him. When Aunt Lizzie visited us in Renfrew County, she never failed to bring Father some outlandish gift, which she insisted was just what he needed.  One summer it was a dress shirt with a high round celluloid collar, which Father had to wear to church the Sunday she was there. It took both Mother and Aunt Lizzie to button it around his neck, and when he got home he said his head ached and his ears were ringing.  He never wore the shirt again. I thought the small stiff straw hat

with the narrow brim, and the narrow black ribbon looked much better than the big old tattered one Father wore around the farm.  Aunt Lizzie bought it at Walker’s Store in Renfrew and she never let Father forget that she had paid a whole .75 cents for it! That

in her cow-hide suitcases. Father wasn’t too pleased, but Mother told him to get it over with... there would be no living with his sister until she had her way.  And off they went in the Model T on the Saturday. I couldn’t wait to see what

They were black shiny patent leather, with white leather insets under the laces, and the toes were so pointed, Emerson said you could kick the eyes out of a snake at 50 paces! didn’t make him like it any better, especially when he saw the identical hat on a woman in the Lutheran Church one Sunday! Well, one summer, Aunt Lizzie arrived, and as usual, the house was in a turmoil.  She re-arranged the furniture without even an if-you-please to Mother, all of which was promptly moved back where it belonged the minute the train left Renfrew station. That year, Aunt Lizzie told Father that she wanted to go into Renfrew to do some shopping for him, as what she had in mind was too bulky to pack

Aunt Lizzie had in mind for Father. When they got home, Father was like a thunder cloud, changed into his bib overalls and headed for the barn. Aunt Lizzie came in with a shoe box under her arm.  She opened it on the kitchen table, and there was a pair of men’s shoes the likes of which I had never seen before. They were black shiny patent leather, with white leather insets under the laces, and the toes were so pointed, Emerson said you could kick the eyes out of a snake at 50 paces! Aunt Lizzie insisted Father wear

VERONA

them to church the next day, which he did with great reluctance, but the minute he got home, they were exchanged for his black well-worn work boots. Aunt Lizzie said he should wear them all day to break them in.   Father sat and looked at the shoes for the longest time, and I could tell he was thinking long and hard. He put the new shoes back on and headed for the barn to do the Sunday night chores. When he came in for supper, you wouldn’t recognize the new black and white leather shoes. They were covered with manure, grass and mud, and you couldn’t tell where the white insets started and the black toes began. Even Father’s socks were ready for the Monday washing! I knew without question Father, who was meticulous about both himself and the barns, had deliberately ruined the shoes. Aunt Lizzie flew into a fit, grabbed the shoes and went out to the rain barrel with a whisk and a rag. She agreed then they should only be worn to church on Sunday. Her train left before the week was out, and she wasn’t around to see if Father was in his new shoes at the Lutheran Church. Like the kimono, the shirt with the celluloid collar, and the straw hat, the shoes vanished, never to be seen again on the farm at Northcote.

PUZZLE PAGE

HOROSCOPES

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 – Aries, you don’t always have the answers when it comes to your romantic relationship, but that’s alright. There are no rule books for this type of thing; you learn as you go. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 – Taurus, your life has been relatively tranquil. However, you have been itching to do something fun and adventurous to turn things around. This could be the week for that. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 – You may find that one of your coworkers is more critical of your work than usual, Gemini. Don’t take it the wrong way, as constructive criticism can be a good thing. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 – Cancer, things have calmed down considerably in your life. This week presents a good opportunity to take a trip that is geared entirely around your interests. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 – Leo, remain modest about your personal and professional accomplishments this week. Now is not the time to show off. Be humble in your conversations. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 – Virgo, as inviting as a situation may look, appearances can be deceiving. You may want to dip your toe into the water before you dive right into something. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 – Libra, this week you need to be extra cautious if you are in the middle of any business dealings. All it can take is the slightest misstep to turn everything around. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 – Scorpio, things beyond your control may be contributing to sour feelings this week. Look at the bright side of any situation and you can probably find a solution that works. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 – Sagittarius, you are seldom soft spoken, but this week you may have to be even more assertive to get your point across. Otherwise your opinions might fall on deaf ears. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 – Try to get outside as much as possible this week, Capricorn. The fresh air and sunshine can do wonders for your mood. Plus, you can get in some exercise. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 – Do not follow the examples of others when they act irrationally to a certain situation, Aquarius. Although it can be difficult, you need to take the high road. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 – Take a chance and express all of your goals and hopes this week, Pisces. Others may be surprised at what you have to say.

Historic tourist destination opens its doors once again Correspondent

EMC News - This past Saturday, May 18, Kingstonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fort Henry kicked off its 75th summer season with all of the pomp and fanfare befitting one of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most treasured sites. The Fort remains open throughout the year, but hosts the most feted events throughout the summer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have lots of new stuff going on this year,â&#x20AC;? says Mark Bennett, programmer for the St. Lawrence Parks Commission, which backs the Fort as a tourist site. This being Fort Henryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s diamond jubilee year, Bennett is excited about the many additions that are being unveiled this season. The Advanced Battery Bistro, for instance, is a stunning patio restaurant that overlooks the lake by the Fortâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upper south wall. Offering a wide range of contemporary fare, a spectacular vista, and the ambiance of historic cannons nearby, the bistro is a lovely update to the Fort and sure to draw the downtown foodie crowd. Also updated is Fort Henryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signature sunset ceremony. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The sunset ceremony is brand new this year. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never been done like this before,â&#x20AC;? says Bennett. A ceremony will still be held every Wednesday and Saturday, but will now be accompanied by an immense, million-dollar projection system. As for what will be projected, Bennett laughs, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see when you come and buy a ticket!â&#x20AC;? The main fort is also now complemented by a sort of trade square,

which has vendors selling traditional historic items. This past Saturday, some of the goods for sale included candy, books, and gift items. As the season goes on, more vendors will join the market. Of course, one aspect of the Fort that wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be changing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and, in a sense, hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t changed since 1867 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is the highly celebrated Fort Henry Guard. The Guard, which does daily drills and maintains strict 19th century authenticity, is the pride and joy of the Fort. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The training never stops,â&#x20AC;? Bennett says of what it takes to be in the Guard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of hard work and pride in what you do.â&#x20AC;? In fact, the Fort Henry Guard is among the top 5 per cent of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s precision drill performance teams. Members must meet strict standards of discipline and obedience, just like the real British and Canadian regiments of that era. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have what it takes to be in the Guard, you can still picture yourself in the regiment by learning the weaponry. This year, the Fort is once again offering lessons in operating antique arms such as cannons and muskets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We train the public to fire off historic weapons,â&#x20AC;? Bennett says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It went over with a big bang,â&#x20AC;? he jokes. The Fort has also opened its Discovery Centre again, which was unveiled last year. With first-rate interactive audio and video, cannon firing games, trivia, gift shop, and a spectacular atrium, the Discovery Centre will again be a busy spot for tourists and locals alike. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a popular wedding venue, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy

N

to see why, given the rolling green As for what he hopes for the season, lawns and lake view. Bennett says Bennettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pride in the Fort is clear. that nearly every weekend is already â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just lots of people coming out booked for a wedding between now and enjoying Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history,â&#x20AC;? he and October. says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think Kingstonians should be

It’s surprising to think that Han got nomination quiet from the club and was planning to attend the awards ceremony her start in cheerleading somewhat by solo, while everyone else either slept in chance, while attending high school in St. Thomas, Ont. “I was playing field hockey and enjoying it, and then a friend of mine wanted to try out for cheerleading but wouldn’t go by herself, so she dared me to,” TRUCKLOADS ARRIVING DAILY Han recalled how FROM ONTARIO GROWERS it all began. “We went and I made the team and she didn’t.” That was the VEGETABLES & FLOWERS start of what would Impatiens, Petunias, Pansies, Marigolds, turn into a 27-year Stocks, Snap Dragons, Roses, Tomatoes, coaching career Cabbage, Cauliflower, Cucumbers, Peppers, for Han. “I was nomiParsley, Spanish Onions, Rhubarb and many nated as one of more! the captains the KINGSTON’S LARGEST following year and so I had to HERB & VEGETABLE SELECTION start coaching,” Red & White Seed Potatoes Han said, noting that back in those Planting Onions days cheerleading Barrels: Wood “whole & half”, coaches didn’t exPlastic - great for rain barrels, docks & storage ist.

“This was the most successful season we’ve ever had. We’ve never had that many wins and so many teams going. At nationals 50 per cent of our team came out as national champs. It says a lot about my coaching staff and it says a lot about the kids and what they are willing to do,” Han said.

Han believes that everything happens for a reason and that all the twists and turns in her career have happened because they were destined to. “What was meant to be was meant to be,” she said, adding that she is excited for the future and what it has in store for both herself and Kingston Elite.

fellow teammate. “Then, in third year, I decided it was just too hard,” she said, explaining that she felt the team could do so much more were someone to be dedicated solely to coaching. “I said, ‘Ok, I will, as much as I love performing, hang up the old cheerleading shoes and become just a coach.’” Her teammates weren’t convinced that she wouldn’t miss being on the mat. “I didn’t miss it for a second. It was just the right fit,” she said. Teachers college brought Han to the Limestone City, where a friend and fellow Queen’s student asked if she would take over coaching the cheer squad. “That was the beginning of what I didn’t expect to be 18 years of coaching at Queen’s,” she said. That same year, Han also took over coaching the cheerleading team at Holy Cross Catholic Secondary School, when an illness forced the current coach to step down. She coached the Crusaders for six years. Han said she had always intended to return to the Waterloo area after teachers college, but between coaching Queen’s and Holy Cross she said she couldn’t leave Kingston, and she never has. Her teaching career eventually brought her to Regiopois-Notre Dame Catholic Secondary School. At the time, it was a difficult move. “I did not ever intend on teaching at Regi. The postings came up and there was a spot open at Holy Cross and a spot open at Regi, and I ended up with the one at Regi…That day that I found out was like the worst day of my life because those girls were my babies.” Today, Han said she wouldn’t want to teach anywhere else. “This is home to me.” As with Holy Cross, Han coached the Panthers for six years, after which she decided it was time to step aside and let the girls she had at one time coached take over. “It was the right time to start something new.” Enter Kingston Elite All-Star Cheerleading, a company Han founded in 2005. “It was my way, I thought, to serve the community, to go a little bit bigger and serve the entire community, not just one school,” she said. What started out as a club with two teams with a total of 34 kids has grown to 11 teams and 150 athletes over the last eight years. During that time, the club has had great success competitively at the regional, provincial and national level. In the last three years alone, Kingston Elite has earned 10 first place and six second-place banners.

Green ways to protect your skin Much of the public now recognizes the dangers of overexposure to the sun. Skin cancer ranks as one of the most common forms of cancer across the globe, and individuals are increasingly conscientious about protecting their skin from damaging ultraviolet, or UV, rays. Certain natural sources might be able to reduce the risk of skin cancer. Leafy vegetables Spinach may not only provide Popeye with his strength, but it also may help reduce your risk of developing skin cancer. Researchers from Queensland, Australia found that eating leafy green vegetables plays an important role in reducing skin cancer risk as wearing protective clothing and sunscreen. The study, led by Dr. Jolieke van der Pols from The Queensland Institute of Medical Research, was conducted over 11 years and studied 1,000 people

from Sunshine Coast, Queensland. Researchers discovered that participants who consumed at least three servings per week of green vegetables could cut their chances of developing skin cancer by up to 55 percent. It is believed the variety of nutrients found in the vegetables, including folic acid, vitamin A and C, as well as the carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin, work together to fight cancer. Tea Years ago, researchers at the University of Minnesota Hormel Institute tested a solution containing chemicals known as polyphenols. The solution, which was made from extractions from green tea, was tested on live mice that were exposed to UV light. The study found that a protein labeled JNK-2 is directly related to the development of skin cancer, and this protein could be

blocked by the application of polyphenols. This application helps reduce the formation of skin tumors. While drinking tea has long been touted as a way to prevent various cancers, this study looks at the way the tea applied topically also can help.

Cover Up Applying a sunscreen is one of the easiest and more popular ways to protect the skin, but some people worry about the side effects of chemicals used in popular sunscreens. Covering up the face and skin as much as possible is one way to reduce exposure to such chemicals. Wear a densely woven hat with a brim that features at least a two- to three-inch overhang, which can protect the face, neck, ears, eyes, and lips from the sun.
