South Frontenac takes $30,000 from reserves for Verona traffic study By Craig Bakay Reporter

Easter Seals Botilla Pg. 28

EMC News – South Frontenac Council approved $30,000 for a Verona Transportation Improvement Plan at its regular meeting last week in Sydenham. The $30,000 was not in the approved 2013 budget and will be transferred from reserves. CAO/Clerk Wayne Orr said the speed and volume of traffic along with sidewalk/path issues was recently cited by the Verona Community Association after the Verona Visioning session as a high priority. The main road through the hamlet is Road 38, a former provincial highway that links the 401 and Highway. 7.

Coun. Ron Vandewal, while agreeing that the study was a desirable one, was concerned about taking funds out of reserves for it. “It would give an unbiased opinion, but we went through a budget process and now we’re saying ‘let’s add another $30,000,’” Vandewal said. “The community came together after many conflicting opinions and it’s important we get back to them,” said Coun. John McDougall, one of the two Portland District (where Verona is located) representatives. The other Portland representative, Bill Robinson, cast the lone nay vote to the proposal. Filling in for Public Works Manager Mark Segsworth, who was

absent to look after some family to compare and contrast the health matters, Orr said the purpose historical data to current and of the study would be to “fully asprojected trends to establish sess the traffic control devices and developmental changes that physical characteristics of the imare anticipated to occur within provements found at the intersecthe next 10 years.

New sign in Arden welcomed with pomp and circumstance By Craig Bakay Reporter

EMC News – The Friends of Arden gathered on the Canada Day weekend to unveil its latest project — a new sign and parkade on Arden Road, immediately south of Highway 7. The event was also a kickoff to the Arden Artisans’ Garden Party and the Kennebec Historical Society’s Strawberry Social. The sign, created by local sign maker Rodger MacMunn, is essentially a triptych with a central maps and history section flanked by ads featuring local businesses and services. It also includes the hamlet’s motto “Naturally beautiful, friendly by nature.” It was a joint venture by the Friends of Arden, the Township of Central Frontenac and The County of Frontenac, who provided a grant through the county’s Integrated Community Sustainability Planning Fund. “Coordinating all those interested in being part of the display and then dsigning the sign itself has taken several months, but the long-awaited final result has been worth the waith and all the work,” said Dorothy Proctor, one of the founders of Friends of Arden. “I’d like to congratulate the Friends of Arden and the community,” said Central Frontenac Mayor and Frontenac County

Warden Janet Gutowski. “The community has taken so many steps and it’s great to see a grassroots movement taking the lead. “We on municipal councils should be following your lead on this.” “It’s easy to support a community like yourself,” said Anne Marie Young, Frontenac County economic development and sustainability planning manager. “We’re pleased to be involved with financial assistance. “You’re leading by example.” Master of ceremonies Terry Kennedy welcomed a group from Arden’s sister community, Queensborough, and thanked the firefighters for their assistance in the logistics of setting up the occasion. He said work on the sign continued right up until the last minute. “In fact, the roof of the big ‘Arden’ sign, which was installed last year, only went on yesterday,” he said. Kennedy also thanked Glen Matson for donating the land and landscaping it, Val and Roy Beechey for the concrete benches and planters and Sarah Hale for painting the map of the village. He said the sign not only serves to identify the hamlet and its businesses and services, but also “demonstrates that this is a community coming together and a community revitalizing together.”

Gord Wright appropriately piped in the new addition to the Arden landscape Saturday.

More Health Care Service on Wolfe Island ‌ Less ferry chaos? By Margaret Knott Correspondent

EMC News – Wolfe is gearing up for the third in a series of relatively new and exciting Paramedicine Wellness Clinics at the WI Community Medical Clinic . The Paramedicine Clinics are a Frontenac County Paramedic Services a pilot program . The program is in support of islanders efforts to stay in their homes longer, reduce demands on emergency services and hospitals and maybe even reduce health care costs. The service includes Paramedics taking and recording vital signs as well as answering client questions within their scope of practice, and working with other community health members. The Paramedicine Clinic’s are held on the island every 6 weeks, in conjunction with the regular island foot care clinics initiated by the Seniors Association. The next date is July 22nd

10:30 am-1;30 pm Paul Charbonneau, Director of Frontenac Paramedic Services announced Wolfe Island as the location for Frontenac County’s first Paramedicine Wellness Clinic at a WI Community Medical Clinic AGM held in May. “The goal of Paramedicine Wellness Cinics is to reduce 911 calls . That’s what it is all about,� Charbonneau said at the time. “What can we do as part of the health care system to prevent more emergency calls? “Paramedicine can be visiting seniors in their homes, or offer heart rehabilitation programs,� he said citing a program held at a local school gym in Renfrew, (instead of having to travel to Ottawa). “Or a wellness clinic as a place where people can find a comfort level, to have simple things done.. Much like what you are trying to do here so that people do not have to take the ferry off the island for services that could be offered under the

watchful eye of the paramedic, We are often called when there is no one else to call, often the first person people see, Some clinics have identified diabetics who didn’t know,’ he said. Charbonneau noted the program was not eligible for land ambulance grants but is fully county supported at this time “as a proof of concept pilot project, a first foray into health care as a Paramedic Service.� (The possibility of Paramedic led clinics was identified by the WI Clinic Board as a logical initiative for the isolated island community.) The clinics are free of charge and operate on a walk-in basis. First visits can last up to 25 minutes, less at subsequent checkups. First time clients receive a Health Booklet to record personal information, and list medications. Vital signs (BP,pulse, respiration, oxygen saturation, temperature, blood glucose and body weight)

are taken and recorded by the paramedic.The booklet is kept by the client between visits and can be used as a reference at physician appointments.. It should be noted that if a client experiences a medical emergency during a visit, or has a serious health issue that requires immediate attention, paramedics will deal with that situation accordingly performing on-site care and transfer to the hospital as required. The first Paramedicine Clinics was well attended and it is anticipated islanders will use the service on a regular basis to avoid a trip on the ferry. Remaining 2013 Paramedicine Clinic dates including July 22nd are August 26, October 7, and November 8. All Wolfe Island residents are welcome. As a member of the clinic board so aptly put it: “Use it or Lose it‌â€? Around Town :In spite of the weather the island is very busy. Many cyclists, walk ons coming

Sydenham football field to get some repairs, more work needed though By Craig Bakay Reporter

EMC News – The football field in Sydenham has fallen into disrepair, and following a meeting on the site June 20 between South Frontenac Township and Limestone District School Board staff, concerns that the field could be

out of service for a year and cost up to $100,000 for upgrades to the surface and irrigation system were raised, said Public Works Manager Mark Segsworth in a report to council presented at its regular meeting last week in Sydenham. “In the meantime, it’s is possible to achieve an interim fix

for the fall high school sports season,” the report said. “A quotation has been solicited for turf grass reinstatement seeding in the amount of $6,000. “The field will be required to be taken out of service after the Sydenham Triathlon July 7 until Labour Day.” Segsworth’s report said the school board has agreed to cover the expense but there could be additional costs to “Band-Aid the irrigation system.” “It does look like the school board is finally coming to the table recognizing how important this field

plaints could have just been jam sessions around the campfire.” “This (the Canadian Guitar Festival) is a good thing to get people out to,” said Coun. Larry York. ••• Council passed a zoning amendment making the lot where Jitterbugs store is located in Verona residential. “The prospective owners want to use it as their primary residence,” said Planner Lindsay Mills. ••• Council acknowledged the contributions of eight of its fire department volunteers who have each logged 25 years of service with South Frontenac Fire Department.

is,” said Coun. Ron Vandewal. “I looked out my window last weekend and there were little kids playing on it in the middle of the pouring rain,” said Mayor Gary Davison. ••• Council also passed an exemption to the Township Noise Bylaw to allow for the ninth annual Canadian Guitar Festival Aug. 2- 4. The festival has been held at Loughborough Lake Holiday Park for the past few years after its initial two seasons in Odessa. Planner Lindsay Mills said he had one letter of complaint concerning an event at the park but “it mentioned Ambush and said we didn’t approve it but that concert was approved.” “Ambush is very good but they are loud,” said Mayor Gary Davison. “But music carries over the water and some of those com-

Fire chiefs, PWMs want county-wide communications study By Craig Bakay Reporter

EMC News – Despite all the advances in communication in the 21 st century, there are still areas of Frontenac County where radio transmission/reception is “awful or non-existent,” South Frontenac Fire Chief Rick Chesebrough told council at its regular meeting last week in Sydenham. “Over the course of the last number of years, the fire chiefs of Frontenac County have been discussing common problems and issues within each municipality,” Chesebrough said. “The current radio system, i.e. tower sites, base radios and portable radios are old and do not provide adequate coverage within each municipality and have limited capabilities.” Chesebrough said communications is a critical component during emergencies and currently there is

no reliability in the system. “The current tower sites are equipped with battery backup power and, in the event of a power outage, backup power is limited to a couple of hours,” he said. “Each municipality is using a variety of radios and transmission sites with varying level of ranges which are not all compatible with the other fire departments or public works departments, thus creating problems at emergency scenes. “Radio communications during emergencies should not be limited to one agency, rather each municipality should have the ability to communicate internally and externally.” He said the fire chiefs and public works managers would like a study done that would review the current system, identify areas of concern, offer solutions to the current problems and further identify communications issues with the current dispatch provider. To that end, the five fire chiefs (Frontenac Islands has two) and four public works managers would meet to lay out the criteria for a request for proposal and again later to review all submissions and award the contract. Chesebrough said that if all four township councils are in favour of the study, he would be prepared to approach Frontenac County Council for funding. He estimated the cost of the study to be in the $25,000 range with a timeline of about three months to complete. North Frontenac has already passed a resolution in support of the plan, he said. “I think this is an excellent opportunity for the county to pick this up,” said Coun. John McDougall, one of South Frontenac’s two county council representatives. Coun. Ron Vandewal wondered if this might also be an opportunity to look at cell phone coverage, noting that many residents, himself included, have given up their land lines in favour of cell phones. “Only to the extent of what towers are available,” said Chesebrough. “We went through a similar situation with the broadband project,” said Mayor Gary Davison. “They are two different thigs.” “Well, if this gets done, we possibly could use the study to show cell phone companies areas where problems exist,” said Vandewal. “If we don’t get a study, we’ll throw up a couple of antennas and call ’er a day,” joked Coun. Del Stowe.

The Grace Centre is looking for Frontenac artists Correspondent

EMC News - The Grace Centre in Sydenham is on the hunt for some local artists wishing to have their work featured in a show this September. The Arts Committee for the centre, mainly made up of volunteers, has put a call out to local artist with limited response. “We are trying to get artists together for a show in September and hopefully after that as well. We are seeking applications and looking for artists that are interested in displaying their work in our beautiful new community centre,” said Hanna Back, a member of the Arts Committee. Grace Hall in Sydenham has been a main gathering spot in the area since 1861. Originally built as an Episcopalian Methodist church, the building recently received a new renovation this past year to make it the centre of the community once again after having been closed a few years ago. “The space offers itself as a great exhibition space. The walls and the hall are expansive and while it is used for different activities throughout the week, the walls could be used as really great exhibition space,” explained Back. The Arts Committee is focusing on promoting the centre as a premier destination for arts in the area. “That is what we are trying to build up. It is a very slow process because it takes a lot of time and effort to get people together and to get information out to the community. We sent out a call for artists some time ago and there has been very little response because people are simply not aware of it,” said Back.

The hope is that this September show will be the first of many at the Grace Centre, and Back and her committee members really want to focus on building up the arts in the Sydenham community. “We are hoping to make this a year-round showing. I don’t know how frequently we would switch over the artists, it will really depend on what connections we can make, and once we are better known and established it will depend on how many applications we have. With the July 15 deadline looming, Back hopes that more submissions come in and that the September show can go ahead as planned. Ideally, the show would feature three local artists from different genres of art. “We’d also like to have each artist give a little talk about their work, their inspiration and techniques, whatever they would like to talk about, to show the general public more of an insight into them as an artist,” explained Back, “We want them to make a connection and generate some interest for the local artists.

In Our Opinion

Frontenac County’s reserves dilemma is one Heat dangers and pets most municipalities would love to have Craig Bakay Reporter

editorial@theheritageemc.ca

EMC Editorial - You know, something that’s kind of gotten lost in all the kerfuffles surrounding protocol and reserve funding at Frontenac County is that we’re in pretty damn good shape financially. Yes, it may be that previous councils taxed residents a little more than need be, but it’s not like King John and the Sheriff of Nottingham were out there extolling pounds of flesh from the downtrodden peasants. And before county councillors, dogooder citizenry and/or anybody else looking to spend someone else’s money casts themselves in the role of Robin Hood, it might behoove everyone to have a look at what’s really going on here. First of all, anybody accusing Treasurer Marion VanBruinessen of any wrongdoing should be ashamed of themselves. If anything, we should be congratulating the little bean counter for being

very good at her job. After all, she was told by every previous council to ferret away cash into reserve funds and that she did, to a much better extent than any of her neighbours. For example, on revenues of $35 million, Frontenac County has managed to squirrel away $13.5 million (or 38 per cent) into reserves. By comparison, Lanark County has reserves of $16 million on revenue of $67 million (23 per cent), Hastings County has reserves of $14 million on revenue of a whopping $115 million (12 per cent), and Lennox & Addington has only $10 million on $60 million in revenue (17 per cent). In other words, we’ve done a lot better at putting money away for a rainy day than anybody else in the neighbourhood. Do we actually need this much set aside? Probably not, but that doesn’t mean we should be in any rush to spend it either. North Frontenac and Frontenac Islands seem to be leading the charge to spend some of this bounty, and why not. After all, as the two smallest members of Frontenac County, they didn’t put much into it so whatever they get out is gravy. To a certain extent, South Frontenac Mayor Gary Davison’s assertion that

Wanted: an extra five hours a day Hollie Pratt-Campbell Reporter

@hollieprattcamp

EMC Editorial - In January, I wrote a column expressing how I was excited to return to work after maternity leave, but also nervous about starting life as a working mom and learning to juggle motherhood with my full-time reporting job. Six months later, I can honestly say that I never knew life could be as hectic as it has been since my return, and particularly since the end of Steve’s parental leave in April. The upside is that my days are so busy I don’t have a lot of time to sit around and get upset about how crazy they are. The downside is that prioritizing and making difficult compromises are now daily realities. One of the most difficult areas of compromise has been choosing between optimal health and optimal home cleanliness. Without having any formal discussions on the matter, our household chose health, and while I’m glad we did, some days our home drives me up the wall. Cooking healthy meals, for instance, takes time. It’s also messy, as it usually involves chopping, peeling, and de-stem-

ming various kinds of vegetables, and dirtying more than one pan. (Steve, who does most of the cooking, is unenthusiastic about the whole “clean as you go� philosophy. While I have pointed out its benefits on several occasions, he doesn’t seem to believe me and I don’t want to push it because let’s face it, I am lucky to have a husband who cooks.) What this all means is that by the time we sit down to eat dinner, the kitchen looks like a hurricane went through. Further time is thus required to get the kitchen to a somewhat acceptable level of cleanliness. In the remaining hour or so before Summer goes to bed, one of us will usually engage in some sort of exercise - running, yoga, baseball - while the other spends some quality time with our daughter, baths her, reads to her and puts her down. Then one of us will walk the dog while the other works on cleaning the kitchen some more. Finally, we collapse onto the couch for half an hour of TV watching before our own bedtime, which is embarrassingly soon after Summer’s. What’s missing from this picture? Basic tasks like vacuuming and laundry, which used to get done at least twice a week. Now, these chores have been relegated to weekends, which is not good because they really should be done at an even greater frequency than they were pre-Summer. The amount of dirty laundry

that has usually piled up by Friday could (and sometimes nearly does) fill the entire floor of our laundry room. Sometimes, it does feel a bit selfish or irresponsible to go off on my run or to yoga when I know the hamper is overflowing with clothes to be washed, probably because running and yoga are activities I genuinely enjoy doing. But isn’t neglecting your health just as bad if not worse than neglecting household clutter? Or maybe I just need more time to work on this whole balancing act. If it’s this crazy now, imagine how it will be in a few years, when Summer needs to be chauffeured to various after school activities. Does this mean that health and a tidy home – among a number of other things I don’t have room to get into here– will all eventually need to be sacrificed? I don’t think so, because I have seen a number of examples of parents with young children who manage keep pristine homes, cook healthy meals, and be fully involved moms and dads despite the fact that they both work full time. I would love to hear some tips from some of the more experienced working parents out there. From where I stand, it doesn’t seem like there are enough hours in the day to get everything done, but perhaps it doesn’t have to be this way. Any advice on how to bend time? Or at least manage it better?

life threatening. In fact, a dog can only withstand a body temperature of 41 degrees Celsius for a short time before suffering irreparable brain damage or death. It’s for this reason, that pet owners are advised to leave their animals at home where it is cool. It should also be noted that pets can also be in danger when left outdoors on hot summer days. The Ontario SPCA notes that dogs should only be left outside for short periods, should have a cool, sheltered place out of the sun, and be provided with ample water. Particular dogs, the organization notes, including northern breeds and short-muzzled dogs, can experience more difficulties in the heat, and that overweight dogs, puppies under six months of age, dogs with medical conditions and dogs on certain medications can also be susceptible to heat exposure. If you find and suspect a pet may be suffering from heat exhaustion, and the owner cannot be located, the Ontario SPCA advises calling a local branch of the organization, the humane society, or the police.

EMC Editorial – Did you know that each year many pets die as a result of being left in parked cars during hot weather? With the recent hot and humid temperatures the region has been experiencing, we think it timely to remind residents in the KFL&A area of the dangers that summertime heat can pose to our pets. In a Facebook post just weeks ago, the Kingston Humane Society informed the public that it had responded to a call involving a dog that had been left in a dark blue truck with the windows barely parted for a period of 40 minutes. “We arrived in time, but the next dog might not be so lucky,� a section of the post read. According to the Ontario SPCA, “temperatures in a parked car, even with the windows open and in the shade, can rapidly reach very dangerous levels, even on a relatively mild summer day.� Further to that, the organization notes that a dog’s normal temperature is about 39 degrees Celsius, and due to a limited ability to sweat, even a short time in a hot environment, i.e. a vehicle, can be

he’s “tired of being the ATM� for his smaller neighbours would seem to bear some truth. But it’s not only the poorer cousins that have designs on the cash. Davison’s own cohort from South Frontenac, Coun. John McDougall, would like to see a bunch of it spent on seniors housing. It’s no coincidence McDougall worked on a provinciallymandated homelessness study recently. Had his committee been looking at how many beaver dams there are in the county, that would likely have been his spending recommendation. Similarly, just handing over buckets of cash to the townships isn’t all that sound an idea either. The townships finally got all the Federal Gas Tax funds tossed their way and rightfully so, but that doesn’t mean they should just be handed the keys to henhouse. There is merit to lowering taxes, however, not that we’re in any position to make a substantial cut. But by the same token, it certainly looks like our reserves are in excellent shape and could do with smaller contributions in the future, barring any unforeseen disasters, and surely that little bit of savings could be passed on to taxpayers.

Places to explore and things to experience

Mysteries locked in stone The greatest concentration of circles in Europe is in the Cork/Kerry region in Irelandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Southwest, where you can find more than 100. Likewise, burial tombs, which are as old, if not older than the circles, are scattered across the Irish landscape. Until a time machine is created, we rely on theory and speculation to understand the sites. We can conclude that rituals

or ceremonies were conducted at these locations. These may have been spiritual in nature. There may also have been civil ceremonies. Or both. Should things like the stones locations be kept secret? Does that enhance their mystery or endanger them? Will the invasion by countless visitors destroy the sites? Not likely. Many locations require considerable effort to reach and the average tourist wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be trekking to visit them. Tour buses canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get close to most of the locations. The circles and burial sites are found in a mystical land of beauty. They

exist in solitude with no nearby tourist shop selling foreign-made trinkets. Ireland of the past and present has paid great respect to the Otherworld. The circles and dolmens are in abandoned or unknown areas, some in the middle of a farm field, behind a church or miles from nowhere. The traditional dwellers of old Ireland believe in a fairy world. Land is full of life and intersects with the spiritual world. A planned runway at Galway Airport was moved during construction because of an ancient fairy mound. Roads have been re-routed. Is this the thinking of the superstitious or a respect for the spirit of the land? In Eternal Echoes, Irish Catholic theologian John Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donohue tells the story of a giant stone in an Irish town.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;In silence and stillness, the stone held the memory of the village. Stone is the tabernacle of memory. Until we allow some of Natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stillness to reclaim us, we will remain victims of the instant and never enter the heritage of our ancient belonging.â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donohue wrote that the Celtic imagination loved the circle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It recognized how the rhythm of experience, nature and divinity followed a circular pattern.â&#x20AC;? The creation of the stone circles remains mysterious. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to imagine how the giant stones were moved to what are sometimes almost inaccessible locations. Once on site, the stones are typically buried in the ground to a depth equal to that which rises above the ground. Continued on page 12

Community will be “pulling together” for epilepsy fundraiser Correspondent

EMC Events - On July 21, the Epilepsy and Seizure Disorder Resource Centre of Southeastern Ontario will be holding a unique event to raise funds and awareness. The Centre will be hosting its first ever Fire Truck Pull, in which teams of eight will drag a 31-foot fire truck a distance of 100 feet. The event will have prizes for fastest pull, most funds raised, best spirit, and a combination award. According to Executive Director Susan Harrison, the idea for the fire truck pull was inspired by a similar event held by Epilepsy Durham Region. Though that organization is unaffiliated with Kingston, they shared their success and the idea took hold here locally. Harrison says that the fundraiser will serve two purposes: “One is to raise funds, and the other is to raise awareness.” In the Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox & Addington area, there are about 2,000 people living with epilepsy or seizure disorder. “The number of people actually affected grows exponentially,” Harrison explains, because of family and friends that are also affected. According to the Centre, pulling the fire truck 100 feet is symbolic of the one-in-one hundred people that live with epilepsy. “Being diagnosed, people enter this new world,” says Harrison. “Awareness of our services is lower than we would like.” With the help of Special Events Coordinator Laura Casselman, the

centre hopes that the fire truck pull will increase its visibility in the community. “We’re hoping to make it an annual thing,” says Casselman. “We’re just hoping the community enjoys it.” The fire truck pull event will be happening from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Ontario Street in front of City Hall. Admission will be free all day. In addition to the pull, which will start at 1 p.m., the fundraiser will include food, interactive games, and lots of information. “The idea is to have a familyfriendly day for the entire community,” says Casselman. The pull will begin with an honourary team consisting of folks living with epilepsy, some of their family members, as well as local Member of Parliament Ted Hsu. Some of the other teams already registered include members of Kingston Fire & Rescue, with whom the centre partnered to run the event. “They’ve been incredibly supportive and receptive,” says Harrison. The centre has a fundraising goal of $12,000 for the event, but both Casselman and Harrison say that the real goal is to provide a successful and fun event. There are a number of spaces for teams still available, and the centre is also looking for volunteers to help with running the fundraiser. “We’d be thrilled to have them sign up,” says Harrison of anyone that might be interested in volunteering. “It’s going to be a fun atmosphere.” To register a team or to get involved as a volunteer, visit http:// www.epilepsyresource.org/pulltogether.

Executive Director, Susan Harrison, and Events Coordinator, Laura Casselman, look forward to their first annual Fire Truck Pull. Photo/Kelly Reid

ENCHANTĂ&#x2030;

Enchanting and fascinating peopleâ&#x20AC;Ś.and their world

Mark Bergin

The man behind the food bankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clockwork precision turned out to be more of an interest course.â&#x20AC;? After completing the program, he attended Humber College for carpentry, which has served him well over the years. He continued to be drawn to music. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Like any kid of the 60s, I was hugely influenced by the Beatles,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Along with Crosby, Stills and Nash, and James Taylor. I was more grounded in folk. But then I became a huge fan of Yes and Genesis and played in a Genesis clone band.â&#x20AC;? They opened for the likes of famed Canadian rockers like Max Webster and Saga. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We became part of that Toronto progressive rock community,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After coming to Kingston I got more into R & B. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what Soul Survivors is about.â&#x20AC;? After moving to eastern Ontario in 1980, first to Tamworth and now in Gananoque, he remained part of the music scene until landing the job at the food bank. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kingston is a great town,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kingston has embraced me, first as an entertainer and now affiliated with this great organization. Kingston is always incredibly supportive of charities.â&#x20AC;? The food bank grew from its first collection in 1984 organized through the Religious Hospitallers of St. Joseph. At that time, food was counted and sorted at St. Joseph Regional House in Amherstview, then forwarded to the St. Vincent de Paul Society for emergency 30.1cc food distribution. 1.3kW The organi3.9kg (8.6lb) zation grew exponentially. In 1998, the Partners in Mission Food Bank was incorporated and received registered charity

status. In 2003, the organization purchased its current site at 140 Hickson Avenue. Thanks to a large bequest from Mrs. Mae Bowles Gibson in 2005, the mortgage was paid in full. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like the variety of the job,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Day to day, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re putting food hampers out. But so much more happens. In this position, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m always thinking about innovation and sustaining. I really enjoy the people a lot. Our volunteers are phenomenal and staff are great. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m meeting people in the community constantly. I really enjoy that part of it, encountering all different kinds of people from all walks of life and economic levels.â&#x20AC;? The meaningful work gives Singers a sense of fulfillment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be happy in a job in the profit world,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing things here to help people out. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very proud to work here. We have tremendous results on our dollar to service ratio. Less than 9% of income goes to administrative costs. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a lean mean machine. The demand for our services has exploded since 2008 and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been able to keep pace. We do it on a limited budget and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very grateful to the community.

This month, Sandy Singers celebrates 20 years working for the Partners in Mission Food Bank. Photo/Mark Bergin

MS 170 Chain Saw

R0012201121

EMC Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; This month marks a twenty-year tenure for Sandy Singers with the Partners in Mission Food Bank. He started out as warehouse manager and driver. When the previous director left twelve years ago, the organization offered Singers the position of coordinator, which morphed into an executive director role. Born in Scotland, Singers moved to Canada with his family when he was three years old. He grew up in the Toronto area. Singers didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go through school to prepare for a position in the social services. He was heavily involved in the music scene and for years made his living as a professional musician. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was a very distracted kid,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When music came along in the 1960s it was an awakening for me. It was an affirmation that there was a vocation for me and I could carry on with that for a while. It turned out to be a training ground for what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing now. I had to be creative. I was constantly dealing with different kinds of people. And music is a tough row to hoe, it takes a lot of effort.â&#x20AC;? He plays a bit of guitar but is primarily a vocalist. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s composed a lot, created commercial jingles, written movie soundtracks and provided studio backup work. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re local, you may well have heard him with Soul Survivors. The band reunited this past year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I find great comfort in music,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a stabilizing factor. I get lost in the physicality and camaraderie of it.â&#x20AC;? After high school he attended George Brown College for a program in horology. I consider myself fairly literate, but that one stumped me, so I had to ask. Turns out itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the study of the art and science of measuring time, leading to a specialization in the understanding, including repair and restoration, of clocks and other timepieces. But Singers was there at the end of an era. Digital timepieces came into fashion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the first raps a teacher gave to us was that when we graduated there werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to be a lot of jobs,â&#x20AC;? said Singers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So it

How-to pack a car safely This is the prime season for road trips, which many people feel are the most affordable vacation option available. They also provide unsurpassed views of the countryside and the ability to slow down and customize the trip as desired. Packing the car for a road trip can be complicated. Although the goal may be to cram as much as possible into the car and get on the road quickly, part of the safety plan for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s adventure should include packing properly to avoid injury. Americans and Canadians combined drive trillions of miles in any given year. Although it is difficult to make a direct comparison between how many people choose driving as opposed to flying, when comparing data from the Federal Highway Ad-

ministration and the Bureau of Transportation Statistics, for every mile Americans flew they drove about six more in 2011. With so many miles clocked on the road, it is essential to make the experience as safe as possible -- and that means properly securing belongings in a vehicle before getting on the road. In 2009, a laptop computer became a projectile that killed its owner. Heather Storey of Surrey, British Columbia, was driving to work when her vehicle was hit by a tow truck. Her laptop was propelled at such a force that it caused a deadly injury to her head. Unsecured or improperly packed items in a car or truck have the potential to cause serious injury when on the road or, at the very least, may

obscure visibility when driving, says Consumer Reports. The organization and others offer drivers a series of tips that can help make travel safer. * Adjust tire pressure prior to travel. Consult the owners manual to determine the proper tire pressure when the vehicle is carrying a full load. This will not only help alleviate unnecessary wear and tear on the tires, but also can help to prevent a tire blow-out. * Know the carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s limits. It also is important to stay below the maximum permitted weight or maximum load capacity for the car or truck. Consumer Reports says that the capacity for small SUVs can span from 825 pounds to 1,155 pounds. Midsize SUVs may carry anywhere from 900 pounds to 1,405 pounds. Minivan capacities can vary significantly as well. The load capacity is specified in the

ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manual. * Store the heaviest items at the lowest, most central part of the vehicle. This helps reduce effects on handling that can lead to problems with steering or braking. Drivers should keep the overall center of gravity lower to help reduce the risk of rollover. * Make sure everything is secured in the car or truck. Use crates or boxes to house smaller items. Use straps or rope to tie down anything loaded in the back of a truck or SUV to the vehicleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cargo anchors. Load as much as you can into a carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trunk to avoid having loose items rolling around inside the passenger area. * Keep a clear view of mirrors and the rear of the vehicle. Do not pack any items higher than the level of the rear seats. Not only can these items fly forward in the event of sharp braking or a crash, but they also may obscure the driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s view of the road.

* Invest in a roof rack or cargo box. Only place light items on the roof of the car so you can free up interior space. Secure roof items tightly, as they will be caught by the updraft while driving and you do not want to send them airborne and onto the roadway. Also, if you do use the roof for storage, be aware of how much taller the items will make your vehicle so you know if you can safely drive beneath underpasses. * Make sure passengers can be seated safely. Packing a car doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always mean being able to fit suitcases and belongings. It also means ensuring passengers can ride safely. Do not seat more passengers than can be restrained by the seat belts in the car. If there is not enough room, it is safer in the long run to take two cars. Pack a vehicle safely and make sure it is maintained before heading out on your first road trip of the season.

Things to consider when choosing a vehicle for something youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re eventually going to own. In addition, buying or financing gives consumers more flexibility, as theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re allowed to sell the car whenever they choose without penalty, something that is not allowed under many lease agreements. In addition, there are no mileage restrictions when buying or financing, while such restrictions are typical when leasing a vehicle. * Insurance: Some vehicles are more expensive to insure than others. Insurance companies base insurance rates on a host of factors, but those vehicles that have the strongest safety records and are less likely to be stolen tend to cost less to insure. How much you will pay to insure a vehicle also depends on how you will be paying for it. Lenders typically require borrowers who are financing or leasing a vehicle to fully insure the car, which costs considerably more than basic insurance coverage that drivers who buy their vehicles outright tend to choose. Weigh the costs of insuring different makes or models before making your purchase. Buying a new vehicle requires a considerable financial investment, so buyers should weigh a host of factors before driving their next vehicle off the lot.

Buying a new automobile, be it a brand new car or a preowned vehicle, is a considerable investment. Some buyers agonize over which automobile to buy, while others tend to stick with the same make or model for years on end. Regardless of which group buyers fall into, there are some things all consumers should consider before buying their next vehicle. * Driver needs: A large sport utility vehicle might be your dream vehicle, but it might not be the most practical car to start parking in your garage. When examining your vehicle needs, ask yourself what you use the car for. Is it just a vessel to get you from point A to point B? Do you routinely use your vehicle to take your children and their teammates to and from soccer practice? Is your commute long or short? Each of these things should factor into your decision. For example, if your commute to work is especially long, then perhaps a smaller, more fuel-efficient vehicle is the most practical choice. However, if you routinely carpool or use your car to get the kids to and fro, then a larger vehicle with a more roomy interior might be the best bet regardless of its fuel efficiency. * Budget: Your budget is perhaps the biggest thing to consider when shopping for a new vehicle. Many buyers intend to finance or lease a vehicle, and sites such as Edmunds.com can help prospective buyers estimate what their monthly car payment will be. The larger the down payment youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re able to make, the less your monthly payment will be. In addition, those who intend to finance their vehicle purchases should consider the length of their finance agreement. You might be able to finance a vehicle purchase in as little as 12 months or as long as 72 months. The longer your agreement, the less you will be paying each month. However, you will pay more interest the longer your agreement is and your payment is likely to be the same in the 72nd month, when the vehicle has significantly depreciated in value, as it was in the first month when the vehicleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s value was at its peak. * Lease or buy: The decision to lease or buy is something to consider. Leasing allows drivers to drive a brand new car for far less money than if they were to purchase the vehicle outright, and the terms of a lease are typically far shorter than those when buyers are financing, which allows drivers to get a new vehicle more often. Buying or financing a vehicle has its advantages as well, most notably that you will be making payments

The Frontenac EMC - Thursday, July 11, 2013


Top-down fun in a pair of Corvairs EMC Lifestyle - General Motors astounded the auto industry when it launched a new compact car called the Corvair for the 1960 model year. This car had a rear-mounted, aircooled six-cylinder engine and re-

with his wife Robin, he takes his white 1965 Corvair Monza convertible with automatic transmission and 110 horsepower. When he hits the road with 19 year-old son Riley, they do it in Bob’s red 1964 Corvair Monza Spyder convertible with four-onthe-floor and a turbo-charged engine cranking out 150 horsepower. Bob was born in 1957 in a farmhouse near Leamington. When he was 15, the family car was a 1961 Corvair 4-door sedan which he drove around on his aunt and uncle’s farm

mained in production until 1969. It was often described as the “American Volkswagen.” Bob Impens of Leamington, Ont., owns two Corvairs and both are convertibles. When he goes for a spin

before getting his licence. The car was later sold but Bob was hooked. In 1989, he bought a 1967 Corvair 2-door hardtop “for next to nothing.” He repainted it maroon, then sold it. Around the dinner table one evening, his son Riley said: “Dad, you’ve told us a hundred times how much fun you had with those cars. Let’s look for one and buy it!” And so father and son set off, looking at one Corvair after another all the way to New Brunswick, but returned home empty-handed. Then

Bob Impens poses with his two Corvair convertibles, a white ’65 and red ’64.

Bob heard of one stored in a barn north of Leamington close to where his daughter Brittaney lived. The odometer showed 17,000 miles. Bob bought it in 2006 and brought it home. He installed a new white top and new brakes and tires. The car has been a great source of fun for the whole family with drives all over southern Ontario. With a one-car garage at home, the ’65 Corvair was parked inside while the family car sat outside. This arrangement worked well until 2009 when Bob saw an ad for a 1964 Corvair Monza Spyder convertible in Hamilton, Ont. Bob and his son headed there while towing a flat-bed trailer. A woman whose husband had passed away was selling it, and the car was just like new. Father and son fell in love with this lovely red convertible and paid the full asking price even though they had nowhere at home to keep it. The storage problem was soon solved with the construction of a large new building in the Impens’ back yard, known as “Bob’s Corvair garage.” Both cars are great fun to drive – and they attract smiles and waves wherever they go. I’m always looking for more stories. Email billtsherk@sympatico. ca or write Bill Sherk, 25 John St., P.O. Box 255, Leamington, ON N8H 3W2. Everyone whose story is published in this column will receive a free autographed copy of my latest book: “OLD CAR DETECTIVE FAVOURITE STORIES, 1925 to 1965.”

ASI Group Ltd. (ASI) of St. Catharines is applying to the Ontario Ministry of the Environment (MOE) to use low level chlorination as a treatment protocol for the control of zebra mussels within the Lafarge Canada Inc. - Bath raw water supply system.

ASI is proposing to inject liquid sodium hypochlorite into the cooling water system at low levels (approximately drinking water concentration) known to control zebra mussel colonization. The effluent (discharge) will be stringently monitored under guidelines set forth by the MOE for zero discharge of chlorine. The length of the program is approximately fourteen days in duration and will be performed on a yearly basis as required. The 2013 operation will begin in July.

Reminder to watch for blue-green algae in local waterways EMC News - With summer and warmer weather upon us, KFL&A Public Health is reminding residents that blue-green algae (cyanobacteria) is a common seasonal occurrence in regional waterways. These bacteria occur worldwide and some species produce toxins that can affect animals and humans. Blue-green algae thrive in warm, shallow, undisturbed water that receives a lot of sunlight and that is rich in phosphorus and nitrogen. Animal and human waste and fertilizers that can contaminate water contain these chemicals, which amplify the growth of bluegreen algae. Some common ways for phosphorus and nitrogen to enter lakes and streams are from runoff of fertilizer from both lawns and farming activities, and improperly located septic systems. Toxins can irritate the skin, and if ingested, can cause diarrhea and vomiting. At high enough levels, the toxins may cause liver and nervous system damage. KFL&A Public Health encourages people using lakes and rivers to watch for algae blooms. Dense bluegreen algae blooms may make the water look like pea soup, and can be shades of blue, blue-green, yellow, brown, or red. When a bloom is very large, algae may form solid-looking clumps. Fresh blooms often smell like newly mown grass; older blooms smell like rotting garbage. If blooms are visible: â&#x20AC;˘ Do not use the water for drinking, food preparation, bathing, or showering.

â&#x20AC;˘ Do not allow children, pets, or livestock to swim in the water or drink the water. â&#x20AC;˘ If skin contact does occur, wash with soap and water or rinse thoroughly with clean water to remove the algae. â&#x20AC;˘ Residents should not boil the water. Boiling will not remove the toxins and may release more of the toxin into the water. â&#x20AC;˘ Residents should avoid cooking with the water because food may absorb toxins from the water during cooking. â&#x20AC;˘ Residents should not rely on water jug filtration systems, as they do not protect against the toxins. â&#x20AC;˘ Do not treat the water with a disinfectant such as chlorine bleach. This may break open algae cells and release toxins into the water. Residents should be cautious about eating fish caught in water where blue-green algae blooms occur.  Residents should not eat the liver, kidneys, or other organs of fish caught in the water. On lakes and rivers where blue-green algae blooms are present, people who use the surface water for their private drinking water supply may wish to consider an alternate, protected source of water. For more information, please call KFL&A Public Health at 613- 549-1232, ext. 1248, toll free 1-800-2677875. The Ministry of the Environmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website also provides additional information http://www.ene.gov. on.ca/stdprodconsume/groups/lr/@ene/@resources/ documents/resource/std01_079454.pdf.

Blissful day at Fort Henryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outdoor Battery Bistro EMC Lifestyle - Within the walls of Fort Henry, we gazed across the lake, lunching and sipping sangria cocktails. Inside the fortress, the sounds of the drums and flutes echoed as a reminder that we were dining in this unique slice of history. The Battery Bistro is a new outdoor restaurant located at this world heritage site and is the home of Kingstonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest waterfront patio. If you ever needed a reason to revisit Fort Henry, now is the time. Fort Henry is managed by the St. Lawrence Parks Commission and guards the convergence of the Rideau Canal, Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River. It is designated as a National Historic Site for its defense of these waterways, this region and its role as a key historical fortification site. You can learn so much from those that came before us. Museums, once buildings of old collections for groups to view, now offer more interactive ways for guests to connect and experience history. Fort Henry has always led with this model, offering unique activitiesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;artillery demonstrations, Victorian school lessons, etc.â&#x20AC;&#x201D; where people can gain insight into what life was like 150 years ago. And with the new Discovery Centre, there is even more for the history buff and the not-so-sure to enjoy. We try to attend a Sunset Ceremony each summer, and of course our teen canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss out on the spooky spectacular of Fort

Fright when it returns each the fall. There is so much going on at the Fort, from the new concert series, Sunset Ceremony redevelopment, Trade Market and the opening of the Battery Bistro â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great place to visit this summer break. When I suggested to a visiting friend (she lives 35 km away) that we visit Fort Henry with the kids for lunch I was amazed to learn that she hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been since she herself was a child. The Battery Bistro opened in May this year, just in time for summer visitors. The 200-seat restaurant is a long outdoor patio that butts up against the fortress wall. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s open daily from 11:30 a.m. till 9 p.m. throughout the summer till Labor Day. New hours for the fall will be established according to event schedules. The bistro offers a sublime view of Lake Ontario, the St. Lawrence River, the Royal Military College and the city. The five of us dined at the railing so we could look directly across the water at the scenic wind turbines and boats passing by. We arrived in the afternoon so the lunch rush was over and, given it was a Wednesday, preparations had begun for the live entertainment on the patio for evening dinner guests to enjoy before the Sunset Ceremony kicked off. The Fort has adopted a live music program this year featuring several local artists including Rob Carnegie, Chris Koster, Emily Fennell, Greg Ball,

Kris and Dee to name a few. The best part is there is no parking or admission fee to visit the Battery Bistro or the Trade Markets. Drop in and shop in the square, which features local artisans; stay and enjoy lunch or dinner in the Battery Bistro and listen to a local musician. Guests simply pay a $1.50 service fee per person, which goes directly to Fort Henry to assist with maintenance of the World Heritage Site. Our group was two adults, two teenagers and a child. The menu offered a variety for us all to enjoy. We ordered the Gazpacho soup (a spicy chilled Spanish soup served with onion, cucumber and basil); deep-fried wedges of dill pickles; a fresh melon and strawberry salad; the haddock fish and chips; traditional kids chicken fingers; and the tasty chicken Caesar salad. The menu offers a different variety to the Sunset Ceremonyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s casual barbecue and fine dining candlelight dinners. Thankfully, the same quality and attention to detail that Paul Fortier and his team at Jessop Foods has offered for years at the Fort carries through to this unique dining experience. It can get hot on the patio so umbrellas have arrived to offer shade in this sensational spot. The Bistro is a wonderful addition

with a wide choice of light snacks and upscale main courses to enjoy on the stunning new patio. For a full list of the menu or reserve a table visit foodandheritage.com or call 613-530-2550. Enjoy this special spot before many of the Fort Henry events this summer: Sunset Ceremony â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a tradition at the Fort. Check out this new show with its updated features, including the Fort Henry guard and a historical context through a video story along with enhanced light and sound on select Wednesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Saturday nights.

Pat Trew

Director brings perfect summer action fare to the big screen My Take BY MARK HASKINS

EMC Entertainment - I really enjoyed Die Hard 6… I mean White House Down. Okay so White House Down is basically Die Hard with a bit of Die Hard 3 thrown in, but Die Hard is one of my favourite movies, and Roland Emmerich did it well so I’m all right with it. The premise is simple. A group of highly trained mercenaries, pretending to be terrorists, infiltrate the White House and orchestrate a violent On the surface it looks BYtake JOHNover. TUCKER like an elaborate robbery, but in truth there’s something much more sinister happening. John Cale (Channing Tatum) is taking the tour with his daughter Emily (Joey King) when the White House gets attacked. John’s exmilitary working as a guard for the Speaker of the House, and has aspirations of joining the secret service. So when John and Emily get separated he doesn’t hesitate to start kicking butt to find her. Meanwhile President Sawyer (Jamie Fox) is being hurried to a secure

MOVIE: White House Down STARRING: Channing Tatum, Jamie Fox, Joey King, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and James Wood DIRECTOR: Roland Emmerich RATING: PG location within the White House when he’s betrayed by one of his own. The head of his security detail, Martin Walker (James Wood), is the one behind the entire attack. Luckily for Sawyer, John happens upon them just in time. John has to find a way to get the President out of the White House, rescue the hostages, and save his daughter. He has some help from the outside by way of agent Finnerty (Maggie Gyllenhaal), but for the most part it’s just John and President Sawyer against a mad man and his army of mercenaries. I don’t know if Emmerich did it on purpose or if he claims it’s just a coincidence, but the similarities between White House Down and Die Hard are remarkable to say the least. I suppose it doesn’t really matter because Emmerich pulls it off. White House Down is a good summer action film. Likeable heroes, despicable villains, a larger-than-life scenario, a

few plot twists, a few more one-liners, and a whole lot of action make it well worth seeing. Channing Tatum and Jamie Fox take a good action movie and make it a fun action movie. On their own there’s no question of their talent, but together something special happens. They are funny, they are charming and they are heroic on a whole other level. They are so much fun to watch I hope they do another film together. The rest of the cast isn’t too bad either. Joey King definitely steals the show and Maggie Gyllenhaal nails the part of the intelligent and forceful Secret Service agent. It takes a great actor to play a great villain and James Wood is most certainly a great actor. White House Down is just what I look for in a summer action film. Enough serious action to get the heart pounding, but a light enough plot to keep me laughing. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.
