Battersea subdivision approved despite residents’ opposition By Craig Bakay Reporter

Jayne Christopher Pg. 15

EMC News – A plan to create a subdivision of 15 lots in the hamlet of Battersea was approved by South Frontenac Council at its regular meeting last week in Sydenham but despite a unanimous recorded vote (8-0), opposition by adjacent residents remained. In fact, the two Storrington councillors, Cam Naish and Larry York, spent considerable time after the meeting with residents

trying to explain council’s position. It is not known how many residents they managed to convert. The land in question is a 24hectare (59 acre) parcel to be accessed from a new road to be constructed off Sands Road. The property is located entirely within the boundaries of the hamlet of Battersea. In his report to council, Planner Lindsay Mills said: “A public meeting was held Dec. 4, 2012 where many objections were received from the surrounding

property owners. “Since the meeting, the developer (Roger Outllette) has attempted to address the concerns, in particular, the plan no longer contemplates a private lane off the new road to access the lots on the steeply sloping portion of the property . . . also, only 15 lots are now being proposed thereby allowing all the lots to be enlarged and have at least 50 metres of frontage on the new public road.” Normally, frontage of 96 metres is required by the Zoning

Bylaw but Mills said that can be supported in this case because all of the lots are in the “settlement area” of Battersea where the Official Plan sets no minimum frontage requirements, they are all in a plan of subdivision involving hydrogeological study and terrain/soils analysis which help to support such frontage reductions, and each lot meets or exceeds the minimum lot size requirements in both bylaws. Council also set 27 conditions that must be fulfilled as part of the site plan agreement.

“As council is aware,” Mills said, “letters of objection to the subdivision were received and signed by many residents in the area. “Their main concerns appear to be that drainage will be altered which would negatively affect their lands; that the wetland will be negatively affected; that trees and wildlife habitat on the escarpment would be destroyed; and that there would be increased traffic on Sands Road i.e. concerns for safety.” Continued on page 3

Aboriginal Experience Day draws rave reviews from those involved By Craig Bakay Reporter

EMC News – “A dance workshop is not to teach you native dance, but to give you lessons for life,” said Adrian Battle War Chief at the second annual Sharbot Lake Aboriginal Experience Day, held at St. James Major School last week. “I’ve done a lot of things, such as bartending, working for FEMA, but I never thought I’d be doing this. “I just picked up the hoops one day . . . you have to find your passion and do that. “Start the journey and the path will reveal itself.” That’s a theme that was carried on throughout the day, as the Limestone District and Algonquin Lakeshore Catholic District school boards joined together to provide a unique cultural experience for students throughout the area. “Our goal is to create much more than a cultural experience,” said Sean McDonald of the Algonquin Lakeshore board. “We strive to bring together elders and teachers

in a non-traditional classroom. “Our goal is mutual sharing and understanding.” To that end, organizers put together workshops in drumming, dancing, turtle teachings, the environment, fire keeping, Algonquin language, and sacred medicines, culminating in a cultural celebration at the end of the day on the main field. “I’m very excited because this brings students and community members together in an important way,” said Kevin Reed, Limestone board aboriginal consultant. “We want students to be familiar with the traditional culture of their area.” And those teaching the workshops were equally enthusiastic. “They (students) love making noise,” said Danka Brewer, who ran a drumming workshop. “But they also seem to respect that we have to respect where the materials come from. “All of the materials used to make the drum involve sacrifice — the tree gave up its life and we use water to shape it, fire to dry it, the

earth provides material and air is also used in drying. “And air provides the voice of the drum as sound is carried by air, and we also teach never to hit the drums in anger or under the influence of alcohol or drugs.” Fire Keeper Mitch Sewell echoed that sentiment. “It’s been a good day,” he said. “We’ve been talking about the 13 grandfathers, how we take care of a fire and what it represents. “We’ve talked about how a fire is very much alive and the different types of fires — those for cooking and to stay warm are very different from other fires. “And the students are actually making fires with flint.”

Battersea subdivision approved despite residents’ opposition Continued from page 1

Many councillors said they felt they had no choice but to send the plan on to Frontenac County for approval. “There has been a lot of work done in the report and special uses have been identified,” said Naish. “I can support this even though I know a lot of residents on the road don’t.” “I agree with Coun. Naish, there’s been a lot of work done on this,” said York, which drew a collec-

tive “so?” from the crowd. “They’ve (the developers) done everything we’ve asked them to.” “When this first came to Council, I was adamant I couldn’t support it,” said Coun. Ron Vandewal. “But this plan is substantially different from the first one and the developer has appeased all the agencies and departments.” “I don’t see anything here that would trigger a ‘no,’” said Coun. Del Stowe. “If the developer went to the OMB with this, I don’t see that wee could win.”

All about Summer on Wolfe Island… Do Come Visit… By Margaret Knott Correspondent

EMC News- It happens every year right about now… Wolfe Island prepares for the fast event filled rather short summer and equally short tourist season…. It begins it seems when the summer students return to begin the task of regulating ferry traffic for MTO and ends with their departure for fall classes… usually on the 24th of May weekend (that came early this year) followed on its heels by the American Memorial Day weekend. It is that period when boats return to the water, convertible’s return to the streets, cottages are opened up for the season, the landfill site is busier than ever, and concern begins to mount about making the ferry once in the line up or finding parking in the village. Fargo’s Store raises the Canadian and American flags … so appropriate if one takes a look at Wolfe Island’s history, its proximity to Cape Vincent and the State of New York, the skirmishes surrounding the war of 1812 and so on . At one time just a walk , or sleigh ride across the ice to attend a local dance or a matter of taking the Horne’s ferry to visit family living at the Cape. (Now of course with Customs on both sides). Self reliance is important to islanders. It is a reliance based on its identity first, as an island, and secondly as an isolated rural community with one ferry, a community that must be responsible for

itself, in spite of its dependency on Kingston and the province, or perhaps because of it. And as such it has its schools , churches, library, volunteer fire and ambulance service, Community Medical Clinic and a number of independent businesses and services supporting island residents and the agricultural community. And for its population, as well as for visitors and tourists it offers many opportunities (Cycling, Big Sandy Bay (beach, birds, walking) , Wind Tower visits, Art Gallery (opens June 21st), Historical Museum, stores, restaurant, hotel, bakery, B&B’s, restful repose, food , ice cream, entertainment and Horne’s ferry to the USA.

BellRock Schoolhouse Theatre Presents mew melodrama Correspondent

EMC Entertainment - For community theatre director Doug MacIntyre, there’s nothing quite like staging a melodrama. Melodramas, for the uninitiated, are a genre of theatre that exaggerates words, actions, and characters for maximum effect. MacIntyre fell in love with the genre when invited to co-direct one with a friend about a year ago. He found that he enjoyed the comedy of melodramas and seeing the audience’s reaction. Now, he’s bringing the genre to the Frontenac area. The first piece that MacIntyre directed with the BellRock Schoolhouse Theatre near Verona was a melodrama called Here Come the Cows, which was met with huge enthusiasm. “The audience went wild. They enjoyed it so much!” MacIntyre remembers. Now, the community theatre troupe of BellRock is staging its second melodrama, entitled The Great Ice Cream Scheme. The piece tells the story of hero Robin Baskins and his nemesis I.C. Custard’s attempt to steal a precious ice cream recipe. The colorful cast of characters includes Parfait Deluxe, Nana Peel, Marsha Mallow, and Walt Nutz, among others. “It’s rather bawdy humour, but not vulgar,” MacIntyre says. “You really are reaching for the extreme interpretation. I think that’s the beauty of it.” Opening night was on Friday, June 7, with another performance on June 8, both of which were dinner theatre performances. “The BellRock Schoolhouse Theatre seats about 80 regular seats or about 50 dinner theatre seats, making it an intimate space. This is ideal for melodramas, which require

audience participation and interaction,” says MacIntyre. In fact, the audience is encouraged to boo or hiss at the characters as their machinations are revealed. The cast includes veterans as well as newbies to the theatre scene. Debbie Lingen, who is making her debut with the group by playing Nana Peel, is excited to be performing with the troupe. “I love this play. It is impossible to go through an evening of practice without cracking up at the funny dialogue. The actors are marvelous and fill their roles perfectly,” she says. Dick Miller, a Verona native and long-time thespian, agrees with Lingen. “This is a fun play and I love melodramas. You can draw in the audience and play them a bit. There is a lot of fun and laughs.” Miller will be playing the

Jumping at the opportunity EMC Events – Tori Newman, Kayley Gregory, Chifonne Hugh and Joelle Parr jumped at the opportunity to collect $5,000 for Breast Cancer Action Kingston as part of their civics class this year at Sharbot Lake High School. The girls were one of nine teams who had to research, and put a presentation together about a local charity and then a panel of judges decided who would get the money for their charity. The Youth and Philanthropy Initiative celebrated its 10th year in 2012 and has distributed more than $7 million to various charities in similar programs across Canada, the UK and New York City. Teacher Jane and Ian MacKay play opposite one another in The Randy McVeety said he loves the program because it puts “something authentic in the Great Ice Cream Scheme (Photo courtesy of BellRock curriculum and regardless of the results, it gives students the opportunity to research Schoolhouse Theatre).

Former staff, students gather to say goodbye to Hinchinbrooke PS By Craig Bakay Reporter

EMC News — For many, it was an emotional Saturday for current and former Huskies at Hinchinbrooke Public School in Parham. After 47 years, the school will no longer open this coming fall, having been amalgamated into the Granite Ridge Education Centre along with Sharbot Lake High School and Sharbot Lake Public School. “We are honoured and humbled by the community turnout and support of our school closing event as we say ‘farewell’ to a good friend — Hinchinbrooke Public School,” said Principal Emily Yanch. “I must say that I have quite enjoyed researching about Hinchinbrooke’s past and have thoroughly enjoyed hearing stories of the past and reading correspondence we have re-

ceived, reminiscing about ‘Hinch’ and fond memories.” She related a couple of stories, including original Principal Bill Sproule helping with the actual construction of the school and getting “heat that didn’t require stoking the fire over the course of the cold winters we have.” She also related the early days of Hinchinbrooke School, which itself was an amalgamation of Piccadilly, Oak Flats, Cole Lake, Wagarville, Tichborne and Parham Schools, to what’s happening now. “I very much connect with the emotion and uncertainty that these communities faced 50 years ago, as we find ourselves in similar circumstance,” she said. “The amalgamation of three schools will see Granite Ridge Education Centre come alive for students in the fall.

“We are creatures of habit, and for many of us change is not an easy process. “What I do know, is the values and community spirit that is at the heart of the Hinchinbrooke community will be carried forward to Granite Ridge in the fall … your contributions will make Granite Ridge a wonderful place to learn, grow and flourish.” Mary Peters and Mary Cronk were two of the teachers at Hinchinbrooke during that first year that began in January 1966. Cronk, the oldest living teacher at age 88, taught “in every school in Hinchinbrooke Township.” She taught all grades, and all

class sizes. “When we started, the school wasn’t finished,” she said. “We had to work around piles of books and building materials. “But we turned out some fine students, including a number of professionals (including granddaughter Savannah Cronk, a fourth-generation teacher). “I’m the most fortunate one here.” “The children were taught well,”

said Peters, who retired in 1993 after 26-and-a-half years at Hinchinbrooke. “I think this school has left a legacy for the community.” Former Principal John McDougall had a lot of memories as well. “When I started here, I was an itinerant teacher,” he said. “I travelled the countryside and also sold eggs. “They were a dollar a dozen back then.”

In Our Opinion

Perhaps it’s time to talk turtles once again, along with other things Craig Bakay Reporter

editorial@theheritageemc.ca

EMC Editorial - A friend called up the other day wondering if we could mention something about turtles crossing the road again. It seems she watched somebody intentionally swerve to hit a turtle and she was understandably upset about it. Thankfully, this sort of behaviour has been on the wane in recent years but it does still happen. If you do happen to see an injured turtle, it might be worth a call to the Kawartha Turtle Trauma Centre in Peterborough (705-741-5000), a nonprofit group who are trying their best to fix up injured turtles. It wasn’t that long ago when spring was heralded by dozens of turtle carcasses all over area roads as they came out of the wetlands to lay their eggs and lost out to cars as they crossed the roads. About 10 years ago, some of us in

the media started pointing this out and it wasn’t long before Coun. Del Stowe and others on the South Frontenac Natural Environment Committee took up the cause and put together an awareness campaign including road signs to remind people that the turtles were out there. And things have gotten a lot better for turtles if my travels on Frontenac County roads this spring are any indication. I haven’t seen one injured turtle this year. Of course that doesn’t mean there aren’t turtles out there getting run over on the road. And that brings up another point — if something isn’t affecting you directly, or happening in a place where you can see it, you probably don’t care. It’s like that with NIMBY (Not In My Back Yard) reactions. Most people don’t really give a damn what goes on until it affects them in some way. For example, there’s a subdivision plan for Battersea that was just approved by South Frontenac Council. There were a number of people (about a dozen or so) who live in the area that were there to show their opposition to

Grab a lawn chair

the plan. However, council’s hands were sort of tied in this case because even though they put all sorts of constraints and conditions on the plan, the developer managed to comply with all the demands and once that was done, council had little choice but to approve the measures. Now, it’s unlikely that anybody on Bob’s Lake or Devil Lake or Verona for that matter will likely think twice about a development in Battersea and/or those it affects. But perhaps they should. South Frontenac to its credit has some of the most stringent rules anywhere when it comes to development. The idea is to protect the rich natural heritage that this area provides. But even so, there are ways around it. At one time, the Muskokas and the Kawarthas were pretty pristine too. Also, areas around Toronto featured rich woodlands and rolling farms. Such is not the case today. Perhaps it’s time to look at the rules for development once again and decide once and for all just how much ‘progress’ we really want in this area. At least, the turtles probably would be against it.

EMC Editorial – The votes have been tallied and the results are in. During the month of May, community members cast their votes for the titles they wanted to see among this year’s Movies in the Square lineup. The results of that voting are in, and on June 20 The Mighty Ducks will kick off the event’s seventh season. Each Thursday night throughout the summer, barring July 11, Springer Market Square will be transformed into an outdoor movie theatre, where classic movies will be projected on an inflatable screen. During the months of June and July, movies will get underway at dusk, around 9 p.m. In August, showings will begin in and around 8:30 p.m. A great family outing, we at the EMC would like to encourage Kingstonians and residents north of Highway 401 in Frontenac County to pack some lawn chairs and blankets and head down to Springer Market Square and partake in this unique moviegoing experience. All the movies are free, and popcorn and other snacks will be available for pur-

dent. Just ask the families of Cst. Vu Pham, Cst. Chris Garret, Cst. Thomas Coffin, Cst. Eric Nystedt, Cst. Scott Rossiter, Cst. Vernon Miller, and the list goes on. These fallen heroes, both Provincial and Municipal, were all policing small towns across Ontario; the rural municipalities where officers “don’t get shot at every dayâ€?, when they were murdered. Violence isn’t an everyday occurrence in most cities and towns in Ontario, but to suggest that policing isn’t a hazardous profession, regardless of location, is naĂŻve and frankly, dangerous.

As always, I invite a fact-based and educational debate on the merits and value that a police service brings to this community. Not only in terms of the actual delivery of services, which result in a safe and prosperous municipality, but also the intangibles such as local community involvement, volunteerism and leadership in any number of groups, clubs and other associated organizations. These are the values that enhance the quality of a society in any small, medium or large community that are enshrined by a caring and quality police service. OPP

chase. A fantastic assortment of family-friendly films are among this year’s lineup. Madagascar will follow The Mighty Ducks on June 27, followed by Sleepless in Seattle July 4, Goldfinger July 18, The Incredibles July 25, West Side Story Aug. 1, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone Aug. 8, The Muppet Movie Aug. 15, Superman Aug. 22 and Ghostbusters Aug. 29. Just like us, we are sure that many area residents will find some old favourites among this year’s lineup, as well as perhaps one or two that they have never seen. One thing is for sure: with a variety of genres represented, there is bound to be something for everyone in this year’s lineup. This summer pastime attracts some large crowds, so be sure to arrive early for a good seat. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Low back lawn chairs for seating are preferred to ensure good viewing for all who attend. Rain dates will be announced through local media and via the Downtown Kingston! Facebook and Twitter accounts.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Cost of cops Dear editor, While discussing the municipal budgeting process and taxes at a recent South Frontenac Council meeting it appears that some council members, including Mayor Gary Davison, have a rose-coloured view of rural living. When the inevitable conversation around the cost of policing arose, Davison urged council to support the Mayors coalition plan to fight the increases that will be passed on to municipalities through a letterwriting campaign. While this is

rightly within their purview to do so, what transpired was not only inappropriate but highly offensive to OPP personnel and law enforcement across this Province. Quotes from some Council members about the Police Officers who keep their community safe: “They do a great job but we’re a rural municipality and it’s not like they get shot at every day,� said Coun. Larry York. “I’m sure going down York Road is not as dangerous as Jane and Finch,� said Mayor Gary Davison. The dangers of policing are evi-

officers are valued members of their communities and they take pride in the safety of their friends and neighbours, regardless of what street corner officers are assigned to. The intrinsic value brought to any society by police officers should not be measured by how many times they are shot at and we take umbrage to the insensitive comments from some Council members on behalf of our membership.

The arrival of an ice box was like Christmas time Mary Cook

Columnist

editorial@theheritageemc.ca

EMC Lifestyle - Until that fateful day in the middle of summer, Mother had no choice but to keep the perishables on a swinging shelf in the dugout under the house.  It was a dank and frightening place, and could only be entered from the outside...there was no trap-door in the kitchen like Aunt Bertha had on the next farm.  Two big doors tilted against the house, and they had to be lifted to gain entry.  It was a place I hated with a passion, and Mother too never quite got used to putting butter and milk on the swinging shelf.  Blocks of ice were put in big tubs down in the dugout in the hope that what Mother put down there would be kept chilled enough that we all wouldn’t die from food poisoning.  Of course when the ice melted, the big tubs had to be hauled up and emptied a job for my big strapping brothers.

But it was Grandfather who changed all that one day when he came out from Ottawa and ordered Father to hitch up the wagon and head into Renfrew.  Of course, Grandfather had no intention of riding all the way into Renfrew sitting on a rickety seat on a wagon.  He drove ahead in his rumble seat car and told Father where to meet him.  Everett went with Father to help. The purpose of his trip into town was to buy Mother a brand new Barnett ice box!  “Uncivilized! That’s what it is!” he said time and again on his regular visits to the farm, and when one of us kids was sent down into the dug-out to bring up milk or butter, or anything else that Mother hoped would keep fresh long enough so that we could eat it. We always had had an ice house, and it was always full of blocks of ice, but never until that wonderful day, did we have an ice box to put the blocks in! Mother spent the entire morning trying to come up with a decent place to put the ice box in the kitchen.  It had to be well away from the Find-

lay Oval, of course.  And it couldn’t sit in the window looking out into the grape arbour...that’s where the old pine table sat and where we had our meals.  Finally, without even knowing what it would look like, or what size it was, Mother decided it would go catty corner next to the little room off the kitchen that served as Mother and Father’s bedroom.   So that place was scrubbed by Audrey, wiped dry, and newspapers laid out covering the entire corner. For reasons unknown to me at the time, Mother made all of us change from play clothes into our next-toSunday best…was it because we were getting an ice box?  Or was it because Grandfather would be there for a visit?  At any rate, we were spit-clean when Grandfather drove back into the yard, and said the new ice box would be here as soon as Father could get back from Renfrew.   Mother in a clean Dan River dress and a fresh white apron, sat on the back stoop waiting for its arrival, and Audrey and I perched on the pump stoop.   Grandfather brought out a kitchen chair to the yard.   He wouldn’t sit on

anything that wasn’t spotlessly clean in case he got a mark on his white flannel pants!   It was like we were waiting for the Queen to arrive! And then we saw the wagon round the corner at the far end of the lane, and as it got closer we could see Everett standing with his arms wrapped around what liked like a casket standing on its end.   Father pulled the wagon up close to the kitchen door.  “My oh my,” Mother said, not even waiting until it was loaded off onto the ground, she leaned into the wagon and rubbed her hands all over the new ice box like it was made of gold! It took the three brothers and Father to lift it off the wagon, with Grandfather telling them to be careful and not scratch it.  It was shiny wood, the colour of caramel candy, with silver handles, and I thought was grand enough that it could easily have sat in the parlour. Without even being told, Everett tore to the ice house, and using the big black iron tongs, hauled a block of ice into the house.   It was beastly hot in the kitchen with the Findlay Oval pumping out heat, and I secretly won-

WHAT’S HAPPENING

dered if the ice box would cool off the whole house.   Emerson swung open the little door on the side, and Everett plopped in the block of ice. Audrey and I were sent down to the dugout for all the perishables, and Mother arranged it all in the ice box like she was laying out blocks for a quilt.   Grandfather had thought of everything.  While in Renfrew he bought an exact duplicate of our white granite dish pan, and he slid it under the ice box to catch the drip.  We sat around the ice box on kitchen chairs, as if waiting for it to tell us something.  It sure looked mighty nice in the corner, and I could tell Mother was as proud as if someone had bought her a new car! What a change the new ice box brought to our old log house.  Now we had it as well as a telephone, thanks to Uncle Lou.   Emerson wondered what we had to do to get running water, and I longed for the day we could just push up a switch and a light would go on just like at my little friend Joyce’s house. Sadly, water from a tap, and light from a bulb were not to be.  Both would have to wait until the day we left the farm many years away.

DAYTRIPPER

Mark Bergin

Places to explore and things to experience

Celebrating our multi-cultured world EMC Lifestyle - Next weekend you can explore the world without travelling beyond Napanee at the 10th Napanee Multicultural Festival. In celebration of its 10th anniversary, this year’s program was expanded to a three-day celebration, from June 20 to 22, beginning with a Gala Dinner on Thursday evening where community icons will be honoured. Then, Friday and Saturday’s celebrations will showcase performances by many cultural groups. There will be cultural exhibits, food booths and demonstrations. The Napanee and District Multicultural Association (NDMA) was founded to encourage and promote social and cultural expression in the community. To start the festival, NDMA will honour four Napanee residents for their contributions to multiculturalism in the community. For two of them, their friendship has lasted nearly half a century. That friendship, a bond between Kay Snider and Martin Millen, was groundbreaking. To some, it was also socially unacceptable. Kay Snider and Martin Millen stuck together through difficult times. In the 1960s, Millen, a black man from Jamaica, moved to Napanee. To put it mildly, he experienced cruelty and racism firsthand. He also experienced kindness. One of the most accepting people, Snider, born in the United States, opened her boarding house to Millen. Not all the boarders or residents of Napanee agreed with mixed-race housing. Snider, now 104, stuck up for Millen. So did Snider’s sons and friends. When Millen was re-

fused service in town, Snider and her family stood by him and supported him. Slowly the barriers came down. Snider grew up in Illinois and learned from her family that all people, regardless of colour, are equal. Her father taught her that everyone should be treated with respect. She lives her life by that guiding rule. Millen, like Snider, practises kindness and acceptance as an approach to life. Cortwright Christian, a founder and past chairperson of NMDA, said Snider and Millen opened doors for others. Millen didn’t run from town. He still lives in Napanee. Nor did he become bitter. Rather than dwell on the cruel racism he experienced, he’d rather remember the kindness shown to him by many in Napanee. He’s a man who loves to garden and, over the years, he’s given away many of the fruits and vegetables he’s grown. He also helped others get back on their feet. This year, Snider and Miller are being recognized for their contributions to the Napanee cultural scene. At the opening banquet to the multicultural festival, Snider and Millen, along with Christian and Jean Morrison, will be recognized as icons of multiculturalism. Christian has worked tirelessly to promote education as a way to fight racism. Morrison is being recognized for her ongoing support of cultural diversity through her work at the Napanee Beaver newspaper. “Jean has been a full supporter of multicultural activities and the festival since its inception,” said Christian. NMDA aims to fight racism and discrimination through education.

The Napanee Multicultural Festival is an important part of educating the community. “Instead of getting mad, it’s better to educate,” said Christian. “Napanee has really grown in its understanding of different cultures.” The festival will feature entertainment from many areas of the world and will feature what Christian calls “the biggest dining room ever seen in this area. There’ll be a massive variety of international dishes.” He rhymed off Greek, Italian, Caribbean, Portuguese, Irish, Scottish and Polish dishes. “And Candian, of course,” he said. “We want to make sure people can come and eat some comfort food.” On Friday, food booths open at 4:30 p.m. A grand opening with the Mayor of Napanee will be followed by entertainment. Friday’s fun runs until 10 p.m. “We’ll have violin players, the Sweet Adelines choir form Kingston, Dance Extreme and a few of the local schools will have presentations,” said Christian. “We’ll have Tim the Puppet Tamer, a fire show and a children’s program to make it a family night.” He said entertainment will include flamenco dancers, a Chinese vocal group, belly dancing and a Latin singer, Cesar Ricardo, from Ottawa. “And there’ll be a full world dining experience,” said Christian. “On both days, there will be educational pavilions focusing on everything from medicine to art in different cultures.”

On Saturday morning, at 10 a.m., tian. “You can sample the finest foods from there’ll be a multicultural parade.

Consider adding one of these animals to your family Marty is a cuddly one-year-old hound mix. He came to the KHS as a stray. Marty is active and playful, but sometimes hesitant of new situations. We recommend no children under 12 for Marty, and a family with an active lifestyle. He gets along well with other dogs, but can be shy at first. Once he knows them, he’s all play bows and wants to party! This adorable, house trained, medium sized boy wants to go home with you!

Biggie and his brother Smalls are tame male rats that are great to handle. They would like to go to a home together but can be separated if need be. Pay them pair a visit at the shelter today!

in support of the Children’s Cancer Fund at KGH Randolph is a four-year-old, male Yellow Lab. This gorgeous boy could stand to lose a few pounds, but who couldn’t? Randolph is sweet and outgoing, seems fine with other dogs and knows a few commands. He needs to work on his leash manners but is likely housetrained. He will need a securely fenced yard or to remain on leash as he likes to roam. We think he should be fine in a home with respectful children and/or with a first time owner.

What is the Children’s Cancer Fund at Kingston General Hospital and why is it important? Treatment-related out-of-pocket expenses consume about 1/3 of an average family’s after-tax income and it is not uncommon for one parent to leave work in order to care for a sick child. Families from across our region often have added expenses related to their children’s illnesses that are not covered by insurance or any other source such as parking, travel, and accommodation for out-of-town treatment. For this reason, the Children’s Cancer Fund at KGH was created to assist families with the burden of these added costs.

Chanel is a beautiful six-year-old, female shorthaired cat who was found by one of our staff members in a dumpster. She is loving and cuddly and deserves a great new home and a new start on life. Pay her a visit at the shelter today.

Domino Theatre presents Fox on the Fairway June 6-22 at its 52 Church St. theatre location. A tribute from Ken Ludwig (Lend Me A Tenor, Moon Over Buffalo) to the great English farces of the 1930s and 1940s, Fox on the Fairway takes audiences on a hilarious romp which pulls the rug out from underneath the stuffy denizens of a private country club. Filled with mistaken identities, slamming doors, and over-the-top romantic shenanigans, it’s a furiously paced comedy that recalls the Marx Brothers’ classics.

RESULTS IN DAYS!

like I now do.� Christopher moved to Kingston when her ex-husband got a job with Parks Canada at Bellevue House. She attended some shows at the Thousand Islands Playhouse and she wanted to become involved, so she contacted the production manager. Her first task was creating a dress for The Prisoner of Zenda. She continued with some bits and pieces of work for a couple of years, then she got the job as Head of Wardrobe.

She noted that she’s not always on her own. For large productions and her work with the St. Lawrence College program, Marianna Tomlinson helps. Why stay at the job in Gan? “It’s such a lovely place, the theatre is right on the river,� she said. “How wonderful is that? I get to work in this lovely place in a fun job.� You may not get to see Christopher at work, but you can see the end result of her efforts in every show on stage at the Thousand Islands Playhouse.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;They sold them to us,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are so beautiful. When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been doing this work for a long time, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a network of people you can call and ask if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen something or know where we can find things. Everyone has interesting resources. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a small theatre world.â&#x20AC;? So, her job involves everything related to an actorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appearance on stage. One day she may be doing alterations, creating a whole new costume and arranging a hair appointment for an actor. She might have to do a lot of shopping. Work shopping. Like finding the exact item required for a costume. Then she fits each actor, making sure clothing is suitable for quick costume changes. Her interest in theatre began in her homeland, England. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In England, my first exposure to theatre was pantomime,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every December, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d go with our school to the theatre, then Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d go again with my family on boxing day. My dad was always interested in theatre.â&#x20AC;? Little wonder. The man attended the University of Liverpool at the same time as Albert Finney. In 1966, her family moved to Ottawa. She said she learned her sewing skills at home from her mother and in home economics classes at high school. After completing her education, she worked at a sewing shop, which she ended up owning, in Ottawa. The shop was located on Sparks Street across from the National Arts Centre. Part of her work at the shop included alterations on European garments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You sure learn how things go together when you have to take them apart,â&#x20AC;? she said. She remembers thinking about involvement in theatre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d see shows and think, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;oh, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to do something like that,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? referring to the costumes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I never had any desire whatsoever to be on stage in front of an audience.

the stewardess roles. Shoes have to match the uniforms. There arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a lot of yellow high heeled footwear items around, so shoes are going to be dyed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have to make sure the shoes are comfortable,â&#x20AC;? said Christopher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be slippery, so we take the shoes to a Kingston shoemaker to put rubber on the bottom. And the hats have to be just right. Then we do the clothing fittings. I have to be concerned about how people get in and out of things, whether they have wigs or have to go to the hairdresser for a cut or to dye their hair. And we have to keep the hair appearance up during the run.â&#x20AC;? On the first day of rehearsals, Christopher starts working on fitting the costumes to the actors. Actors only have two weeks to rehearse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the luxury of time,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As soon as the actors arrive, I have to be ready. The actors rehearse six days a week and we work as many days as it takes to have costumes in final form.â&#x20AC;? Back in Christopherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work centre a couple of blocks from the theatre, once one show opens, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already buzzing away on the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next production. It gets more complicated if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing a period piece, especially a big one like Les Mis. Christopher canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t beg or borrow or scavenge for those costumes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The 1700s section at Value Village is pretty slim,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to have to make them.â&#x20AC;? Christopher also works on costumes for the St. Lawrence College musical theatre program in Brockville. One year there was a cast of 54 in The Mikado. More recently, she worked with 57 students involved in 42nd Street. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I started calling around to see where I could beg or borrow this many period costumes,â&#x20AC;? she said. She discovered, through a contact at the National Arts Centre (NAC) in Ottawa, the costumes that had originally been used at Stratford in the early 1980s. After a European tour, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d ended up in storage at the NAC for 20 years.

â&#x153;&#x201E;

EMC Lifestyle - The magic on a theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stage has been brewing long before the actors cast a spell on their audience. Not to take away from the importance of brilliant acting for, without it, even the best-designed show can be a disaster. But behind the scenes there are conjurers at work. Most people are aware of the work of the director, but there are many others involved. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the lighting designer, stage manager, set designer, sound, music (yes, often a different person than the one responsible for sound) and producers. And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m only naming a few. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a reason there are individual Academy Award (film) and Tony Award (Broadway theatre) categories for each of these skills. The role these professionals play is crucial to success. A stunning production is the result of a huge team. An important person in the background at the Thousand Islands Playhouse in Gananoque is Jayne Christopher. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no one in the professional theatre scene in the region and probably few in the country who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know her, if not in person, then by name. Christopher is the Head of Wardrobe for the professional theatre company. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been working behind the scenes for 23 years. The first time I walked into the Thousand Islands Playhouse warehouse, my eyes opened wide and I stood there in awe. As far I could see were costumes, pieces of material, every imaginable type of clothing, hanging row upon row. In many rooms. Shoes on shelves fill an entire wall. I think Christopher knows what and where every item is. Like many creative people, Christopher has no intention of retiring. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like the job so much,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is nothing Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather do. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something new to learn for every show. I love it. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so much going on behind the scenes, even housing for the actors. People donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize they have to live somewhere. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pack them up in a closet and pull them out again next season.â&#x20AC;? What, exactly, does Christopher do? Besides everything. Christopherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role is monolithic. In a big New York theatre, there might be 10 (or more) people doing what Christopher does on her own. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The director and designer get together and decide what they want the show to look like at least a couple of months before rehearsals. The designer sends me reference material, pictures, and sketches. Then I try to get as much organized before the actors arrive.â&#x20AC;? In the case of the upcoming Boeing Boeing, the designer had already purchased vintage suits for the actors in

The Algonquin Land Claim – Parks and Protected Areas By Robert Potts Correspondent

EMC News - The Algonquins of Ontario (AOO) have long held a way of life deeply rooted in conservation and ecological integrity. Environmental stewardship of land and resources has been an integral practice of the Algonquins since time immemorial. With the release of the Preliminary Draft Agreement-in-Principle (AIP) in December 2012, the AOO once again reaffirmed their desire to work with their partners and neighbours to ensure that ecological integrity is the first priority in the management of Protected Areas, specifically Provincial Parks and Conservation Reserves in the Settlement Area. The Preliminary Draft AIP proposes a number of elements to be reflected in a Final Agreement, some of which are highlighted below. Participation in Protected Area Management Planning The Final Agreement will provide that Ontario will appoint at least one person nominated by the AOO to the Ontario Parks Board of Directors. This representation will ensure that the voice of the AOO is heard, and that lessons and practices learned from years of sound management and living in harmony with the land and resources are shared. Should other Boards be established related to Protected Areas in the Settlement Area, the AOO will also have representation. The Preliminary Draft AIP also proposes that the Final Agreement will set out three levels of Algonquin engagement in Protected Area management planning: Level 1: The AOO will review and comment on Protected Area Management Plans and Management Statements prepared by Ontario. Level 2: The AOO, as members on the Protected Area planning teams, will participate in the development and amendment of Management Plans and Management Statements. Level 3: In Algonquin Provincial Park and 15 other identified Provincial Parks, the AOO and the Protected Area Manager will work through an Algonquin Planning Committee to jointly develop, amend and examine

Management Plans, Management Statements, Secondary Plans, Natural Heritage Education Programs and any other strategic plans for Protected Areas. Access to Protected Areas The Final Agreement will also deal with access roads, trails, use of motorized vehicles and other access issues in Protected Areas through Protected Area Management Planning processes that consider the maintenance of ecological integrity as well as the Algonquin interest in access to Protected Areas for harvesting. The AOO will work with Ontario Parks and the Algonquin Forestry Authority to develop Forest Management Plans that deal with the construction and decommissioning of forestry roads and water crossings in Algonquin Provincial Park. Cultural Recognition in Protected Areas Leading up to a Final Agreement, the AOO and Ontario will work together to explore the development of a signature project such as a cultural centre, museum or other tourist destination in Algonquin Provincial Park or in another Protected Area, subject to the appropriate feasibility studies. Such a project will recognize the interrelations of the land and the Algonquin way of life, while celebrating Algonquin culture. Fundamental to this Chapter of the Preliminary Draft AIP is the continued sharing of long-standing and effective conservation and management practices by the AOO with their partners. The AOO are committed to ensuring the vitality and future prosperity of all Provincial Parks and Conservation Reserves within the Settlement Area, for the continued use of the AOO and our neighbours. This column is the third in a series providing insights into Algonquin history, the foundation for the land claim, elements of the Preliminary Draft AIP and next steps in the journey. The next column will focus on the existing harvest management practices of the Algonquins of Ontario. For more information visit www. tanakiwin.com.

Pat Barr likely to replace Tinlin on South Frontenac Council By Craig Bakay Reporter

EMC News — ‘Barring’ any unforeseen developments, Pat Barr will likely replace Coun. Mark Tinlin, who resigned from South Frontenac Council last week for “personal family reasons.” Under The Municipal Act, council has 60 days from the June 4 meeting where the vacancy was declared to decide how to fill the vacancy — either by appointment or byelection. In his report to council, CAO/Clerk Wayne Orr said that any candidate for appointment must consent to accept the office and must meet the eligibility requirements under The Municipal Elections Act and The Municipal Act (i.e. must reside in the township, own land or be a tenant, be 18 years of age, a Canadian citizen, not an employee of the township, not a judge, MPP, MP or Senator, not in jail, not an executor or trustee or acting for a voter and only hold one office). He said council is free to choose any method of appointment including a candidate who ran in the last election but was not elected, a former politician or prominent citizen, an individual nominated by a councillor, citizen or community group, a random selection of consenting individuals with the name pulled out of a hat, recruited by advertisement and screened by council, or any other method council selected. Coun. Del Stowe, Bedford District’s only representative following Tinlin’s resignation, declined to name Barr but said, “the candidate that ran in the last election and wasn’t elected is still very interested. “I talked to them and they’re eager, and they spent all that money on the last elec-

tion.” Mayor Gary Davison and Coun. Larry York, Bill Robinson, Ron Vandewal and John McDougall all indicated their support for the proposal. “It would certainly seem to be reasonable,” said Davison. Coun. Al McPhail, while “in agreement” with the plan, urged council to “take a look at other options” before making an official decision as “it would be good to have a policy in place for other vacancies as they occur.” For her part, Barr, who was in attendance at the meeting and wanted to wait until officially asked before commenting, did indicate that she was interested in the position and prepared to accept it enthusiastically should the appointment be offered. In the 2010 election, Barr received 662 votes to Tinlin’s 821, and Stowe’s 715. Barr is no stranger to municipal politics, having grown up in Bedford Township where her father Carl was a councillor and reeve preamalgamation. She has a degree in geography from the University of Guelph and also studied agriculture at Kemptville College. She has usually worked in some aspect of horticulture, including greenhouses and florist shops. ••• South Frontenac Council gave its endorsement to a Frontenac County bylaw establishing a one-year term of office for the Warden. Such a bylaw requires a triple majority (passage at County Council and approval of the majority of its member townships and approval of townships representing a majority of voters. “We wouldn’t need this bylaw if we had honourable people on county council,” said Mayor Gary Davison.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Snoezelenâ&#x20AC;? room opens at Frontenac, Lennox and Addington Family and Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Services By Hollie Pratt-Campbell hpratt-campbell@theemc.ca

EMC News - A new resource is now available to children with autism and other sensory processing disorders at the Frontenac, Lennox and Addington Family and Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Services on Division Street Called a sensory, or Snoezelen room - named for two Dutch verbs, â&#x20AC;&#x153;snuffelenâ&#x20AC;?, meaning to seek out and explore and â&#x20AC;&#x153;doezelenâ&#x20AC;?, meaning to relax - the space is designed to allow children with a variety of developmental disorders the opportunity to take a break from our sensory-rich world, and leave with an increased ability to focus on important things in their lives. The room was made possible thanks to a $12,700 grant funded by the City of Kingston and the United Way Community Investment Fund; it contains a number of sensory elements including bright, colourful tubes, soft music and images projected onto the wall, all in a dimly-lit environment. The Snoezelen roomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grand opening was held June 5. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The way we have it set up is that each child dictates what sense they want to work with,â&#x20AC;? said developmental services worker Kristine McLeod. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going towards the light tube, maybe theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for visual sensory input. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all in a controlled environment, so the goal is to have the child feel relaxed and calm without over-stimulating them.â&#x20AC;?

She explains that children with sensory issues have a hard time concentrating on important aspects life, such as conversations, due to all the visual, audio, touch and smell stimulants that are usually present in day-to-day life. A sensory room calms the senses down so they are able to attend to a task. The room will directly affect the work Family and Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Services does on a daily basis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a lot of access visits here that occur between children in foster care and their birth families,â&#x20AC;? said former family services manager Christine Savoie, explaining that often they find the kids are out of control because of their sensory issues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping is that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to calm them down and that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to attend to the relationship with their families rather than everything interfering with it and then their behaviour escalating.â&#x20AC;? Savoie added that the room will also benefit children who have histories of trauma, abuse and neglect, and that she hopes it will play a role in furthering research on this topic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sensory rooms were first invented for children with autism, and then as more and more research came out we discovered that children with trauma histories actually have lots of sensory issues, but there hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been a lot of research towards that,â&#x20AC;? Savoie said. In fact, Savoie noted that researchers from Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s University have already expressed interest in

Kimberley Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien, who originally came up with the idea for and initiated the project, but left for maternity leave before she was able to see it completed. She returned for the Snoezelen roomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grand opening, and noted that it felt absolutely amazing to finally see the

finished project come together. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope that it brings children and families an experience to connect and visit together, and to just be in a room thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to support all of the things that children and their families need,â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien said.

It only takes about an hour to play the course, appealing to those with time constraints. Kingston Par 3 course is a perfect way to be introduced to the lifelong benefits of golf. The kid’s golf camps run each week during the summer, providing exposure to the fundamentals of golf to over 200 kids each year. Seniors are drawn to Kingston Par 3 for its overall short yardage, allowing them to get the exercise they desire along with the camaraderie of their fellow golfers. The low handicapper benefits from playing the Par 3 by practicing the two areas of the sport where most strokes on a scorecard accumulate... chipping and putting. Kingston Par 3 is a great venue for groups to attend. Whether a family, business, charity or friendly get-together, par 3 golf allows everyone to contribute to the team score without becoming discouraged and overwhelmed by many long holes and many long hours. Our facilities include a licensed restaurant and patio, a fully stocked pro shop, new fleets of pull and power carts and, of course, our driving range. Kingston Par 3 golf is the affordable choice.

EMC Lifestyle – According to Dave Hudson, Kingston is home to some good comics. One can often find these comics performing on stage during Pro-Am nights at the Time to Laugh Comedy Club. A professional comic himself, Hudson explained that Pro-Am night was created by fellow local comedian Ryan Dennee following requests for more stage time outside of Comedian Idol, the Limestone city’s semi-annual comedy competition. “Over the years we’ve built a small little community of comedians and people who want to get up and try it,” says Hudson, who created Comedian Idol nearly 10 years ago. “People were itching for more time in between, because sometimes we just do a spring and a fall Comedian Idol, so they wanted more spots.” The owners at Time to Laugh Comedy Club were receptive to the idea of a regular evening featuring professional and amateur comics; Pro-Am night has since been running for approximately two years. “They [the nights] just sort of randomly come up…if there is no band playing or there are no comedians in town then they’ll say it’s Thursday or its Friday or whatever. It’s just sort of this roaming date people sign up for,” Hudson explains. Each Pro-Am night gets underway at approximately 8 p.m. and features 10 to 12 comics each performing five to seven-minute sets. For those who don’t think five minutes is enough stage time, Hudson assures, “When you’re up there, five minutes is an eternity, especially if no one is laughing…and if you’re funny, it’s enough time to show you’re funny.” To date, Pro-Am nights have been widely successful

among local comics. Hudson notes that the roster for each show tends to fill up rather quickly. “There is a lot of interest. There is always the core group of five guys that sign up every single time, and then there are other people who just come in trying it for the first time,” he says. “We have some pretty funny guys. Obviously there are a few train wrecks, but oddly enough I expected to have way more of that. For the most part, there are really funny people in town.” For newcomers to the Kingston comedy scene, Pro-Am Night is the perfect opportunity to test the waters and learn and get help from other local comics. Hudson, who has been in comedy for 17 years, notes that there is no other way to get started than finding a mike and getting up on stage. “I like when people are taking a chance on anything…because the biggest regret is to say you want to do something and be too scared to do it…I love it when people come out and do something that is tough to do and doing stand-up comedy is tough.” While the Pro-Am Night has been popular among local comedians, the shows could use a few more faces in the audience. Hudson believes that many residents likely aren’t aware of Pro-Am Night or even perhaps that there is a comedy club in the city. “Some nights the audience and the comics are the same number, you’ve got a one-to-one ratio; it would be kind of nice to get a few more people,” he says. “Hopefully we’ll get more people to come out and see the shows because there are good comics in this town.” The next Pro-Am Night at the Time to Laugh Comedy, 394 Princess St., is June 21.

KITCHEN KREATIONS

Kate Kristiansen

A Spoonful of Love EMC Lifestyle - Sustainable food. Food Security. These are topics that even in a rich and bountiful country such as ours are still a growing concern. Recently in Ontario, Local Food bill 130 has been reinvigorated to support the purchasing and growing of local food to assist with food access for everyone. Here locally, the non-profit organization Loving Spoonful works to enhance access to healthy food through a variety of innovative programs. “Our purpose is to enhance access to fresh food in ways that are empowering, environmentally sustainable and inclusive – we do this in a variety of ways through education, maintenance of gardens and food reclamation,” Said Mara Shaw, executive director of Loving Spoonful. What is food security? The World Health Organization defines it as “when all people at all times have access to sufficient, safe, nutritious food to maintain a healthy and active life”. Commonly, the concept of food security is defined as including both physical and economic access to food

that meets people’s dietary needs as well as their food preferences. A recent KFL&A Public Health study suggests there is a lack of food skill and more education is required to teach basic food preparation, storage and growing skills. Loving Spoonful is delivering just that through insightful workshops such as: Gardening 101, Heirloom Seed Harvesting and Food Preservation. In March “Guilty Pleasures” was held at Olivea restaurant and supported by eight of Kingston’s top chefs, Clark Day, Stev George, Paul Miller, Derek Macgregor, John Saunders, Jay Legere, Meaghan Harris and Wendy Whitall. Guests enjoyed a sinful delight prepared by these chefs made out of their favorite items to eat post shift. Everything from delectable chips and dip, fried bologna and oyster Rockefeller to crème eggs. The event raised awareness and funds for the Loving Spoonful organization. In addition to workshops, Loving Spoonful also assists with the promotion, maintenance and distribution of fresh food from 23 Kingston’s community gardens. “We have 10 gardens with allotments, and a number of other COACH & TOURS gardens we convene.” Said Mara The School GROW programs have five school gardens where grade 5 students plant, maintain and then harvest the food in the fall.

teaches them this added skill. The “Grow a Row” campaign has just kicked off and runs till October – it’s a good time to donate some of your own harvest to help those in need. Volunteers deliver it directly to shelters, hot meal programs, pantries and dropin centres across Kingston. The overall goal is to receive over 6,200 pounds of fresh food donations. “Grow A Row is a great way to give back. We collect your healthy fresh food and then deliver it to community meal programs,” said Shaw. “And, keep in mind that every tomato donated is used in the community which you live.” Drop off locations are as follows: Kingston Public Market Tuesday & Thursday, 2:30 - 4:40 p.m.; Saturday, 11 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Memorial Centre Farmers Market Sunday, Noon-2 p.m. Sydenham Street United Church, 82 Sydenham St. Monday, Tuesday, Wedneday & Friday, 9 a.m. – Noon & 7 – 8:30 p.m. North: Kingston Standard Church – 1185 Sunnyside at Sydenham Rd.

The Frontenac EMC - Thursday, June 13, 2013

EMC lifestyle - Walking into the first of Bob Mitchell’s several sprawling greenhouses, the sweet, earthy smell of ripening tomatoes takes over your senses. For a brief moment, it’s just you and the fruit. You’re filled with a sense of hominess, of nostalgia for your grandmother, or the proud memory of the first vegetable you ever nurtured. When you come back to reality, you start to look around and you can hardly believe your eyes. Row upon row of leafy tomato plants climb toward the soft, filtered light coming in from above. The greenhouse seems to stretch on forever. Little technology gets in the way of nature’s beauty; the stems grow from plasticsheathed blocks of crushed coconut in raised troughs and are clipped to small rods above. Small pipes wind along the floor, masked by green tangles of sagging vines. Every so often a bumblebee lazes by, off to pollinate another plant or return to one of the hives placed throughout the greenhouse. Mitchell, the owner and founder of SunTech Greenhouses, on Doyle Road south of Manotick, somehow fits

into the greenhouse ecosystem, despite a brusque manner and a penchant for loud exclamations. The lifelong farmer moved to a dairy and cash crop farm south of Kenmore when he was six, which he farmed with his family until 1998. And then he entered a greenhouse for the first time in his life. “The smell, that was what hooked me,” he said. From that visit in September 1998, it took 11 months for Mitchell to buy the Doyle Road property, set up a greenhouse that covers a hectare, and plant 22,000 beefsteak tomato plants. “Just a starter kit,” Mitchell laughed. Today, the farm has 1.6 hectares of greenhouse facilities and produces 11 different commercial products. That includes several tomato varieties as well as eggplants, cucumbers, peppers and green beans. NATURE’S WAY

While SunTech certainly doesn’t profess to be organic or pesticide free, it makes use of what nature has to offer. A common greenhouse pest is the white fly, a tiny white bug that can multiply into the billions. As they drink the juices from the plants, they

excrete everywhere – and that can prevent the plants from getting the sunlight they need. But instead of spraying plants with chemicals, Mitchell brings in 40,000 encarsia formosa, a tiny parasitic wasp that lays its eggs in white fly eggs – essentially stopping the reproduction cycle. “You don’t pay them by the hour and they don’t miss,” Mitchell said. Bumblebees are another important part of the greenhouse ecosystem. Brought in from Windsor, Ont., Mitchell’s bees are relied upon to pollinate the tomatoes. The number of bees loose in the greenhouse directly correlates to the number of open flowers, Mitchell said. There are usually two or three bee stings a year, he said, but as the chief bee handler he has managed to escape a sting for nearly 14 years. Of course, the whole point of a greenhouse is to get around Mother Nature’s whims, and SunTech employs a complex computer system to monitor the indoor and outdoor temperatures and adjust the roof vents accordingly. The average daily temperature inside is about 19 degrees, Mitchell said, and they can harvest about 10 months of the year.

Florida, Costa Rica and Nicaragua are destinations for zip line enthusiasts. But you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to travel that far for exhilarating zip line experiences, which are growing in popularity in North America. Ownership of Logos Land Resort, just outside Cobden, is hoping a significant investment in its new three-leg, zip line course will bring smiles and goose bumps to many more of its customers in coming years. Challenges Unlimited Inc. is completing construction and installation of a parallel zip line course over Astrolabe Lake this month. The course warms up nicely, with the first zip carrying visitors 201 metres across a small bay. Zip No. 2 runs 343 metres across the middle of the lake, before the final 401-metre leg returns buckled-in riders back above the water. The total ride is 3,100 feet, or almost one kilometre, at speeds of up to 35 km/h, usually six metres above the water, but sometimes closer to 25. Logos Land owner Jerrold Paxtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business partner, Kevin Cahill, died last December, but not the dream to continue to improve on what Logos Land offers its customers. Facilities already in place include the water park, with its slide, splash pad, grill house, mini-golf, animal petting farm, beach and giant lake trampolines. There are also timeshare villas, motel suites, 90 recreational vehicle (RV) park and camp sites, rental RVs, 100 wilderness camp sites for trailers or tenters, and the neighbouring Oaks of Cobden golf course.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have four goals in mind,â&#x20AC;? says Logos Land director of marketing and sales Fred Glover. The first goal is to offer something, like the zip line course, that caters more to older youngsters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made investments in recent years for the little kids, like the petting farm and the splash pad,â&#x20AC;? says Glover. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But for older kids, as families grow up, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want them to hit the boredom curve.â&#x20AC;? The same philosophy applies to younger adults. The connection of the zip line for these potential customers also happens to coincide with the ideal weight for zip line passengers. The weight allowance runs from 75 to about 275 pounds. The second marketing goal, says Glover, is to expand Logos Landâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season, which for the longest time has been concentrated in July and August. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The zip line can be used year-round, but more practically it will certainly run in the summer, as well as in the spring and fall.â&#x20AC;? Logos Land has already experienced positives vibes about the new course. For example, response at the recent Ottawa RV Show, which attracts more than 20,000 visitors, was extremely positive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our big posters stopped them,â&#x20AC;? says Glover. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It surprised us, especially the positive verbal feedback from 40-, 50- and 60-year-olds. But weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see for sure this summer.â&#x20AC;? Glover acknowledges thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another zip line, at Chutes Coulonge, while pointing out that Logos Land Resort aspires to become a growing part of multi-activity tourist packages in the area, thus Logos Landâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third

marketing goal. For example, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no reason tourists canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t zip over Astrolabe Lake, play golf rounds at a variety of courses in the area, see the Bonnechere Caves, zip some more in Chutes Coulonge and try some whitewater rafting or kayaking. Unlike Logos Land, Chutes Coulonge offers two zip lines of 100 and 260 metres over whitewater rapids and a shorter nine-zip series. As Glover says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every zip line you see is different.â&#x20AC;? The areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newest zip line, says Glover, will be simple, safe, exhilarating and an atSTEVE NEWMAN/METROLAND tractive addition to what Lo- The project manager for the Logos Land zip line is Dave Humphrys of Challenges Unlimgos Land already offers. ited.

The zip line will increase local employment. About a dozen staff will be hired to run the facility. Zip-liners will wear a helmet and gloves while holding on to a harness that is hooked Sensational to a pulley attached to the zip line cable. Reaching the platforms is easy, via stairwells. There will also be a practice zone where riders can hook to a shorter line to familiarize themselves with the art and science of the sport.

For more details, check out www.logosland.com or call 613-646-9765. The zip line is being constructed by Challenges Unlimited Inc.

For better handling and mileage, swap winter tires for summer ones, or all-season types.

Proper car care will protect your hard earned investment (NC)—As Canadians put away their snow blowers, hats and gloves, there is no better time to protect their vehicle, which for most people, is their second largest investment. The harsh winter weather can take its toll, so proper cleaning and maintenance are key to staying on the road and not in the repair shop. To help prepare for those spring showers and changing road conditions, here are simple tips drivers should perform to keep their vehicles running efficiently this road trip season: Change in Temperature Means Change in Inflation –Proper tire inflation is essential for increased automotive safety, optimum driving performance and significant cost savings, including better fuel efficiency (www.goodyear. ca). Tires should be inflated to

the vehicle manufacturer recommendations printed on the vehicle door placard or in the glove box and should be checked monthly. Improper inflation can lead to premature or irregular tire wear, and under-inflation reduces a vehicle’s fuel efficiency by an average of 3.3 percent. Change Your Car’s Shoes – Now is the time to change tires from winter to summer or all-season, if you haven’t already. And for those in need of new tires for their vehicle, each tire in the Goodyear Assurance family meets the needs of drivers by offering confident all-season traction plus a relevant benefit that enhances the driving experience. This product lineup includes Assurance ComforTred Touring with refined handling and comfort, Assurance TripleTred All-Season with ultra-traction,

and Assurance Fuel Max with fuel efficiency. Breathe Free – You may be deeply breathing in that fresh spring air, but your car could still be choking on the salt, dust and sand it sucked in over the winter.  Replacing your air filter improves air flow to the engine and increases engine performance and fuel efficiency, especially during warmer months.

CAR PULLING

SIDE?

Talk to Kal If your car pulls to one side when you brake, it could mean you need an alignment or have uneven tire pressure, or a host of other possibilities. In any case, talk to Kal and we’ll straighten it out.

Fix your bad car-care habits one at a time (NC)â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Breaking bad habits can be hard, especially if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know you have one. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the same when it comes to car care. Many of us arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t aware when we commit a car- care faux pas which could affect the look and longevity of our vehicle. Autoglym offers the following advice to correct some common bad habits: 1. Clean your car consistently throughout the year Create a routine and set a specific day to wash your vehicle. Washing your car at least once or twice a month is recommended to maintain a superior finish. 2. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t skip the polish and wax If you fail to polish and wax your car every few months, opting only to wash it, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re only doing half the job â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so make sure you do it right. Combining the polishing and waxing steps every few months are essential for your carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s care. Polishing is an important step to repair and revive your carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shine, while waxing protects your carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paintwork against environmental factors and weather conditions. A quick way to maintain your wax on the go is to apply Autoglymâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aqua Wax. With this, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no need to

dry your car after washing, saving you time and effort. 3. Make sure to clean your tires Cleaning your wheels is a quick and easy way to improve the overall look of your car. Not only does it make them look great, but regular cleaning prevents the build-up of brake dust, which if left will become difficult to remove. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t neglect your tires either â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a high quality dressing will refresh old rubber, leaving it like new. 4. A little elbow grease in the undercarriage goes a long way Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just about the paint clean the undercarriage of your car frequently. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, rusting wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be your only problem, as the metal in your frame can become brittle and lead to an expensive bill on your next safety inspection. 5. Deal with the problem spots immediately Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave cleaning bird droppings and dirt until later, as these problem spots will become harder to remove the longer you leave them on your car. Tree sap is particularly damaging, as it dries very hard and attaches itself to your car with a tar-like bond.

Diesel particular particulates for some new diesel engines Brian Turner

Car Counsellor bjoeturner@hotmail.com

EMC Lifestyle - One of my favourite automotive writers, Murray Jackson (www.thecrosswordguy.com , passed along a gem regarding some new diesel engine emissions technology and I couldn’t resist sharing it with everyone here.  Murray and I are both confessed fans of diesel engines for passenger cars and light trucks and more and more models from more and more manufacturers are coming to showrooms wearing a diesel badge.  One of the reasons for the surge in diesels is that automakers have come up with some interesting tricks to improve emissions to meet ever more stringent standards.  Some of these systems involve injecting a special fluid into the exhaust and some utilize a particulate filter built into the exhaust system and some use other methods.  It’s these diesel particulate filters (DPF’s) and their method of operation that are taking some consumers by surprise and posing risks to engine longevity. In normal driving or even idling, particulate filters will eventually become clogged restricting exhaust flow and lowering available engine power and eventually causing a stallout requiring replacement or cleaning of the DPF.  These units can be very expensive and would clog far too often to make replacement a viable option.  So the engineers came up with a way of using diesel fuel and the engine itself as a cleaner for these exhaust scrubbers. With some vehicles a separate fuel line injects raw diesel directly into the exhaust DPF where it’s ignited and burns off the accumulated soot.  As you might suspect, during these controlled ‘cleanings’ the tailpipe emissions will be off the scale in terms of toxicity, but as emission rules look to reduce the overall carbon footprint of a vehicle, a temporary blast of raw exhaust every now and then is accepted by the regulators.  Some engineers have forgone the expense of a special diesel fuel injection system for the exhaust and have opted for the running-rich method of DPF cleaning.  On these vehicles, when sensors in the exhaust stream detect a major pressure differential caused by a DPF that needs cleaning, the engine controller simply injects more fuel into the engine than it can burn and the uncombusted fuel flows out of the engine through the exhaust system to the DPF where it is burned to remove the soot. Interestingly enough, on some heavy commercial vehicles that use this system, the DPF’s can be removed and cleaned with specialized shop equipment.  Engine companies like Cummins have these resources in their larger service centres and they treat the removed ash and soot as a hazardous waste. Several problems have arisen from this new technology.  In order for the DPF cleaning to be completed the vehicle has to be operating at highway speeds and during the process the engine’s fuel economy will take a

decided turn for the worse.  On models that have instrument displays that indicate the progress of this action, drivers have reported it taking several hours of highway running before the ‘regeneration complete’ message appears.  For vehicles that don’t necessarily see regular highway driving, the cleaning process can dump unburned diesel fuel into the engine’s oil pan, thus diluting the oil and possibly leading to major internal damage.  Some automakers such as Mazda that have been selling their CX5’s in the UK and Australia equipped with DPFs, instruct their customers to check engine oil on a very regular basis (every 1,000 km or monthly) to look for too much oil on the dipstick as well as not enough.  They’ve even added an ‘over-full’ mark to let drivers know when the oil must be changed due to diesel fuel dilution. Murray and I will both keep an eye out as smaller passenger cars with DPFs will soon start crossing our borders.  If anyone currently driving a truck equipped with a DPF has any comment or opinion, please send it along.  If Ferraris are your chrome craving, Preston Street in Ottawa is the place to be from June 14-16 for the FCA Ottawa Ferrari Festival, (www. fcaottawa.com). Cars will be on display Friday and Saturday evenings with a speed demonstration zone on Saturday.  The big parade of Italy’s finest wheels will roll down Preston Street on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. and the Father’s Day Dream Ride for Charity is on Sunday.   On Saturday, June 15 the Duck Festival Car Show happens in St. Isidore at the arena parking lot from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Check their website at www.festivalducanardetdelaplume. ca for more info. And if Dad really doesn’t need another tie or BBQ tool set this Father’s Day, why not take him to the fourth annual Father’s Day Show ‘n’ shine at Riverside Park in Kemptville from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.  For admission any canned or non-perishable items in support of the Kemptville Salvation Army Food Bank will be gratefully accepted. Dash Plaques are available for the first 200 autos.  There will be automotive and food vendors and breakfast will be served by the Kemptville Canadian Legion and of course, they’ll have their famous Burnout Contest with both a Men and Women’s Category. A fun filled day for the whole family. For more info visit www.Hwy43CarClub.com. And in Ottawa on Father’s Day a must-see is the Billings Estate Father’s Day Show, Ottawa with its spotlight on “Canadian Built” Cars.  This show is an autos-by-invitationonly affair, but spectators are welcome in any number.   If you have any questions, opinions, or stories on anything automotive please drop me a line, [By email to emc@perfprint.ca or directly to bjoeturner@hotmail.com  listing ‘Question for the Car Counselor’ on the subject line or by post to Record News Communications, 5 Lorne St., P.O. Box 158, Smiths Falls, Ont. K7A 4T1].  When using regular mail, please supply a phone number if you seek direct contact (due to volume I can’t always promise replies).

Fighting BY SPENCER CALLAGHAN

P.E.I. man owned ’53 Meteor convertible in Toronto EMC Lifestyle - A letter arrived recently from Darryl Ramsay of Tyne Valley, Prince Edward Island: “Bill, I’m writing about a 1953 Meteor convertible I owned back in ’67. I got the car from Oakwood Auto Body on Rogers Road and Weston Road in Toronto. They had a used car lot out back. I paid $150 for the car and it was so much down and so much a week as shown from the scribbling on the receipt. “The car was that orange-red colour that was common for that year. I sold the car in April ’68 and it ended up on Queen Street in the east end. It was painted a dark green and I used to see it when I went out

to my uncle’s place at Jones and Queen. It was there until 1972. Never saw it after that. “I have often seen ’53s for sale in Ontario through the years and wondered if one was mine. I kept all my old bills of sale for cars and just about everything else from back then and I found the serial number of my Meteor on one of those papers: #0176H5366206. (The ‘H’ indicates Darryl’s car was built in Windsor whereas cars built in Oakville that year had ‘K’ in their serial numbers). “Maybe someone knows where my car is today. It was rare even when I owned it. I have old bills from the Do It Yourself Garage at 300 Greenwood Ave. A lot of people used to go there. I guess it’s no longer in business. I haven’t lived in Toronto since 1970.” I lived in Toronto for many years

and have some old car buddies who live in the east end. I phoned Paul Calderone and told him about Darryl’s letter. Paul remembers a dark green 1953 Meteor convertible in the east end in the early ’70s purchased by his friend John Colley, who repainted it red, dropped a Chev V8 into it, and later sold it. These cars were rare and John’s Meteor is almost certainly the same car that Darryl Ramsay owned. At the time John owned it, Paul had a 1940 Ford convertible (the same car now owned by Keith Summers in Ottawa). Paul and John used to park their convertibles

MOVIE: Now You See Me STARRING: Mark Ruffalo, Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Melanie Laurent, Michael Cain and Morgan Freeman DIRECTOR: Louis Leterrier RATING: PG

EMC Entertainment - This summer is filled with massive blockbusters that I’m dying to see, but out of all of those big budget films Now You See Me was the one that had me the most curious. It’s not often something original comes along. Michael Atlas (Jesse Eisenberg), Henley Reeves (Isla Fisher), Merritt Osbourne (Woody Harrelson) and Jack Wilder (Dave Franco) have BY JOHN TUCKER two things in common. The first thing is they’re all very talented magicians with their own specialty. The second thing is they’ve been brought together when each gets a mysterious invitation. One year after that fateful meeting all four are in Las Vegas headlining a huge show as The Four Horsemen. It’s a magic show like no other. During this magic show they rob a bank in Paris. After the robbery FBI agent Dylan Hobbs (Mark Ruffalo) and Interpol agent Alma Vargas (Melanie Laurent) are forced to work together to figure out how The Four Horsemen did it. Of course that’s the wrong question. How they did it isn’t nearly as important as why they did it. Paris is only the beginning. The Four Horsemen

side by side for roof races. On a given signal, they would see whose top would go up or down the fastest. Paul’s top was vacuum-powered off the engine and John’s was electrical. I forgot to ask who won these races. Does anyone know where Darryl’s Meteor is today? I’m always looking for more sto-

are working on something big. Something really big, and just when you think you know what’s happening you realize you have no idea. Heist films are tricky. A good heist film is a lot like a good magic trick. It’s all about misdirection and distraction until the big reveal at the end. To pull it off all the pieces have to fit together perfectly. Now You See Me is seamless. Every time you think you understand what’s happening you realize it is all just a distraction to get you looking the wrong way. It’s an intricately made film that keeps you guessing until your jaw drops at the end. Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Woody Harrelson, and Dave Franco make a great team. To be a movie stage magician is easy because you can stop the cameras and call in the special effects people. It makes selling it to the audience much more difficult, but these guys are so slick they make it look easy. My only issue is I wanted more scenes with these characters, but the film has to move quickly to keep the audience off balance, or it just wouldn’t work. Morgan Freeman and Michael Cain are of course brilliant. And Melanie Laurent is stunning. But Mark Ruffalo is the one to watch. He’s the glue that holds the whole film together, and his performance is flawless. Louis Leterrier has created a truly clever film. The whole time you’re trying to follow what The Four Horsemen are doing you forget that Leterrier is doing the same thing to the audience. He uses misdirection and distraction like a master magician until he blows you away with his big reveal at the end. It’s fantastic. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.
