Jamboree time

EMC Events - The Verona Lions held their annual Jamboree last weekend, a tradition that dates back to the first one 1951, two years after the club received its charter. In those days, the club house was the old school on the west side of the K & P line (now gone). The Lions moved to their current location in the ’70s. Photo/Craig Bakay

Central roads department shifts funds around, Oak Flats Road to be completed By Craig Bakay Reporter

EMC News — With the grant process that would have financed work on Wagarville Road being late, Central Frontenac Public Works Manager Mike Richardson convinced council to redirect township funds allocated to the project to the completion of Oak Flats Road at the regular meeting last week in Arden. “I feel the existing budget can absorb this,” Richardson said. “Because the grant program was late, meaning Wagarville Road won’t be done until 2014, so we can take the money from there.” Richardson said the original 2012 estimate of $215,000 won’t be enough

to do all the work required on Oak Flats, which has been revised to $368,000. “I’ve noticed some surface treatments are not lasting as long as they could be,” Richardson said. “The reason is the base is not being prepared as well as it can be. “I’m hoping the extra money spent here will give you longevity — we’re hoping to get 15 years rather than the seven we’ve been getting.” The upgrades to Oak Flats will include double surfacing as opposed to single surfacing, more stone in the base, another culvert, and some gabion rock around water areas as requested by the Conservation Authority. In response to a question from Coun. Frances Smith, Richardson said

this would complete work on Oak Flats Road. “I’m disappointed in the grant process being late and not getting to Wagarville Road this year,” said Mayor Janet Gutowski. “We have to make sure we get the budget process done in time next year. “Wagarville is not good to drive on and we will be hearing from people.” Oak Flats wasn’t the only project subject to budget overruns either. Reconstruction on Elm Tree Road — grading, drainage, paving and sidewalks—in the hamlet of Arden will cost an additional $4,000, making the total there $84,000, Richardson said. However, he said the capital budget could absorb the overrun. Coun. Tom Dewey said he’d been

fielding complaints about brush along roadways in Kennebec District. “And I know the brusher’s been out in Oak Flats,” Dewey said. Richardson said the increased rainfall this year has created lots of problems, not only with brush but with washouts but “we’re just finishing up in Oak Flats but then we’ll be spending more time in Kennebec.” Gutowski took the opportunity to praise the roads department. “I think the Public Works department has handled the downpours very well,” she said. “Given the number of washouts and all the brush, I’ve had very few calls.” “We have been out at midnight and on weekends this year where normally we wouldn’t,” said Richardson.

onstructed during the 1970’s, by Nestor and Donald Wowk, Inverary Golf & Country Club opened the doors to its first nine holes in 1980. From that point on, the small, family run Golf Course began to develop and mature. Today Inverary G&CC is an 18 hole facility with a large fully licenced Clubhouse, Pro Shop and Restaurant. The newer back nine is quite a bit different from the original course. With many winding rivers, large sand traps and wooded areas it’s a challenging yet scenic experience that golfers of all abilities can enjoy. Recently the course has been focusing on upgrades to both the Clubhouse and

the Golf Course. Most changes will take place over the next 12 months but some of them are already in effect. Most recently a new menu has been launched with a great selection of appetizers, salads, sides and main courses. The restaurant is now open until 9:00pm on a daily basis. Ground has already been broken on the construction of a brand new driving range which will be completed and open for business in 2014. The new practice facility will include a full sized driving range and at least one more practice green, in addition to the two practice greens already near the clubhouse.

Over the upcoming winter season the Clubhouse will be undergoing some renovations to improve the service, comfort and appearance of the facility. A few of the renovations will include a new and larger bar, to offer draft beer and improve the speed of service, more flat screen T.V’s, and new flooring laid through the entire Clubhouse. This year Inverary G&CC celebrates its 33rd anniversary, is excited about the upcoming upgrades to the facility, and looking forward to another 33 years of fantastic golf seasons in this wonderful area north of Kingston.

Lake associations front and centre at Arden meeting Reporter

EMC News — Generally, when Central Frontenac Council holds its meetings, there are very few members of the public in attendance. Not so at last week’s regular meeting, held in Arden (council holds the vast majority of its meetings at Oso Hall in Sharbot Lake but schedules one meeting per year in each of Kennebec, Mountain Grove and Piccadilly Halls, during the summer months). The hall was packed, the firefighters put on dinner for council and the crowd, and no less than five delegations made presentations, three of which were from the lake associations of Kennebec, Big Clear and Sharbot Lakes. In the case of Kennebec and Sharbot Lakes, the presenters used the opportunity to unveil their lake plans, both nicely bound and presented documents that used decidedly different approaches. “It’s concise,” said resident John DuChene, describing the 14-page Kennebec Lake Stewardship Plan. “It’s based on three principles — to foster environmental awareness, to safeguard the lake/watershed/adjacent lands and to pursue common interests and concerns.” “I like that it’s concise,” said Mayor Janet Gutowski. “That increases the chances it will be read.” While it may not be the voluminous tome that some lake associations have opted for, the plan does include a lot of interesting data and information which could be applied to most lakes in the area, with a special emphasis on how it applies to Kennebec.

For example: “Nutrient levels are currently in the mid-mesotrophic range. Any increase could tip the lake into eutrophic range with significant adverse effects. The pH of the lake water is almost neutral — very slightly basic. At present, zebra mussel populations are not observed in Kennebec Lake, possibly due to insufficient calcium.” The Sharbot Lake Lake Plan Report, presented by Sharbot Lake Property Owners’ Association President Carol Coupland, is a little thicker at 75 pages, and includes a preface, index and such. But it also contains data like MPAC information and considerable information on fish species, a “bird inventory,” as well as a rather comprehensive listing of trees, shrubs and wildflowers. Coupland said the plan was a three-tofour-year project that was completed in two years. It will be available for free at the annual general meeting July 20 at Oso Hall and then for $10 thereafter. And although she didn’t have a lake plan to present, Big Clear Lake Association representative Theresa Smith did bring some concerns, the first being a request for septic re-inspection and the second a request to look into what she called “illegal cottage rentals.” Smith said there are large cottages being rented out on a weekly basis but not registered as businesses, thus costing the township appropriate revenue. “How do you know they’re being rented and not just lent to friends and relatives?” said Coun. Tom Dewey. “They advertise on the internet,” said Smith.

Pat Despicable Me sequel offers Trew plenty of lovable characters


EMC Entertainment - I don’t know what it is about those crazy yellow minions, but they crack me and my kids up every time. Just like the first one, Despicable Me 2 will bring tears to your eyes from laughing so hard, and maybe one or two from tugging on your heart strings. Gru (Steve Carell) is back and BY JOHN TUCKER enjoying life as a suburban dad. Between birthday parties for the girls, dodging his whacky neighbour’s attempts to set him up,

wanting a mom. It’s enough to make an ex-super villain pull out his fart gun. Despicable Me 2 is a slapstick bonanza. It’s one gag after another in a non-stop laugh fest that will have your sides hurting. I honestly can’t remember the last time I laughed this much in a movie theatre. As wonderfully silly as Despicable Me 2 is, it’s also a great story with some great characters you really connect with. There are times when I felt it jumped around too quickly, but for the most part this is a warm and fuzzy comic adventure of epic proportions. Miranda Cosgrove, Dana Gaier, the adorable Elsie Fischer and the deviously witty Russell Brand all return to voice their beloved characters. Steve Coogan joins in as the head of the

Though I suppose there’s always room for saving the world. Lucy Wilde (Kristen Wiig) an agent of the Anti-Villain League kidnaps Gru and takes him to the AVL’s underwater headquarters. Most recently a villain has stolen a powerful mutagenic compound, and the AVL needs someone who thinks like a villain to catch a villain. They need Gru. Gru and Lucy go undercover in a mall to spy on the AVL’s top suspects. Gru is eager to be back in the game, but saving the world isn’t his only concern. Margo (Miranda Cosgrove) has discovered boys, and Agnes (Elsie Fischer) has been hinting at

AVL Silas Ramsbottom, and Benjamin Bratt jumps in the ring as the voice of suspected villain Eduardo. I’ve been a big fan of Steve Carell for a long time. He’s managed to do a lot of different films and varied characters, but I think my favorite is Gru. I love the concept, I love the voice, and I love his delivery. It’s sheer brilliance. Kristen Wiig lends her voice to Lucy Wilde, Gru’s partner and love interest. Wiig gives Lucy a zany manic quality that is hilarious while at the same time making her the perfect fit for Gru. Of course the big scene-stealers are the minions voiced by Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud. They’ve taken animated slapstick and elevated it to the level

in support of the Children’s Cancer Fund at KGH 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. The fund is sustained by generous donations from the public.

In Our Opinion

Oso firefighters invite public to open house this Saturday Craig Bakay Reporter

EMC Editorial â&#x20AC;&#x201D; This Saturday (July 20), you might want to drop by the Fire Station on Wagner Road just south of Sharbot Lake. The firefighters are planning an open house, with fire extinguisher demos, an auto extrication demo, and information on becoming a volunteer and how the station works. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll also have hamburgers and sausages and drinks. No doubt Chief Bill Young and the guys will be doing a little recruiting but this is a good thing. One thing that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get mentioned often enough is how valuable a volunteer fire department is to a rural municipality. The key word here is â&#x20AC;&#x153;volunteer.â&#x20AC;? There is just no chance whatsoever any rural municipality could have a fire department if it were any other way. Hell, we just barely manage

to afford the equipment, insurance, and utilities for the buildings. If we had to add salaries and benefits on top of that, nobody would be able to afford the taxes it would take to pay for it all. And it should be pointed out somewhere that volunteer fire departments do a lot of fundraising to help pay for their equipment too. Not too long ago, somebody posted the following on Facebook. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know who wrote it in the first place but I thought Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d share it here. It goes like this . . . â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a firefighter? I wanted to do that when I was a kid. What do you make? â&#x20AC;&#x153;What do I make? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I make holding your hand seem like the biggest thing in the world while Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m cutting you out of a car. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can make five minutes seem like a lifetime when I go into a burning house to save your family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I make those annoying sirens seem like angels when you need them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can make your children breathe when they stop. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can help you survive a heart attack.

Hot cars kill: a few tips to avoid a fatal mistake

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I make myself get out of bed at 3 a.m. to risk my life to save people Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never met. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Today, I might make the ultimate sacrifice to save your life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I make a difference, what do you make?â&#x20AC;? You know, as a journalist, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been at a lot of fires, car accidents, chemical spills, explosions, ice rescues and even getting a cat out of a tree or two. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m constantly amazed at just how professional these â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;volunteersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; are. When you think about it, there really is no other humanly pursuit quite like what the volunteer firefighters do. You could look at it as kind of a service club I suppose, but then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not often the Lions need breathing apparatuses at one of their functions. Which is not to say the Lions donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do a lot of good work in the community, because of course they do, just that the risk of bodily harm isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite as high. All joking aside, as someone whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seen our volunteer firefighters in action, right across the country, if thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anybody deserving of our support, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s these guys.

Stay cay with Summer Hollie Pratt-Campbell Reporter


EMC Editorial - Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always hated the word staycation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an annoying and awkward combination of two words that just shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go togetherâ&#x20AC;?, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been known to complain to anyone who will listen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People need to stop using it.â&#x20AC;? I mean, it sounds so much like vacation â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a word that holds infinite potential for fun and adventure in far-flung places â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but then it hits you that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a â&#x20AC;&#x153;stayâ&#x20AC;? where the â&#x20AC;&#x153;vayâ&#x20AC;? should be, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge letdown. Why would anybody spend their time off at home? All you get are the same old meals to be cooked, the same old messes to be cleaned and reminders of the daily grind everywhere you look. Earlier this month, I found myself face-to-face with my own first-ever staycation. Summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s caregiver was taking the week off, and Steveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vacation time is depleting at an alarming rate. For complicated bureaucratic reasons, I came back from maternity leave more vacation than I know what to do with, so I volunteered to take the week off to spend with

Summer. In many ways I was looking forward to it, as it gave me a week to bond with my little girl, whom I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get to play with nearly as much as I would like. In another way, I was sorry we werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going somewhere special. Alas, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to take a baby on a trip by yourself, so at home we remained. As it turned out, we had a lot of fun. I taught Summer where her toes are, how to brush her hair and how to climb down from the couch without injuring herself. She spent hours playing in her kiddie pool â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which she miraculously has yet to grow bored of. I bought her some bubbles â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the kind soapy kind with the wand â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and she was absolutely charmed, screaming â&#x20AC;&#x153;bubbasâ&#x20AC;? whenever she caught sight of the container. We had family over for lunch on the Wednesday, and Summer enjoyed being the centre of attention while I welcomed the break of having other people entertain her for a few hours. On the Thursday, Summer and I went on a daytrip to Prince Edward County with my friend Julie and her little girl, McKenna, who is the same age as Summer. We found our own little â&#x20AC;&#x153;exclusiveâ&#x20AC;? beach (we were literally the only ones on it), where the babies had a great time running around in their diapers and trying to get away with eating sand. Afterwards,

we even managed to hit up a couple wineries, making it seem almost like the prechild vacations I once knew and loved. In the evenings, Steve and I put Summer to bed and drank beer or wine while we caught up on Netflix TV shows everyone else seems to have known about for years â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Homeland, Arrested Development. We were at home, sure, but it was still nice to sit and relax without constantly worrying about work in the back of my mind. It was also nice to know that the potential to sleep in the next morning was there, even if Summer never did get the memo about mommyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time off and insisted on waking at her usual 5:30 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 6 a.m. each morning. By the end of the week, I really did feel closer to Summer, which was a wonderful feeling. I think she felt a stronger bond, too, as for a while I dethroned grandpa as her favourite person to be held and entertained by. So maybe taking a vacation at home isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so bad after all. I got to relax, bond with my daughter, catch up with friends and family, and explore uncharted territory in a nearby town â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spend piles of money doing it. An optimist would look at my week off and call it the best of both worlds. (That said, I still think we should do away with the word staycation.)

EMC Editorial - Recently, it seems you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t turn on the news without hearing yet another tragic story of a young child dying as a result of being forgotten in a hot car. On the surface, it seems inconceivable that an otherwise loving, attentive parent or caregiver could do such a thing. How can anyone in their right mind forget that their child is there in the car with them, and leave them in such a dangerous situation? But consider this situation: Your partner is home sick for the day, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your job to drop the little one off at daycare - a departure from your regular routine. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re tired. Late. Stressed about work. You pull out of your driveway and autopilot kicks in. You head to the office while the baby falls asleep in the backseat, too quiet to remind you that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re committing the biggest, most horrific brain fart imaginable. These tragedies are more common than many assume. In 2009, the Pulitzer-prize winning feature Fatal Distraction: Forgetting a Child in the Backseat of a Car Is a Horrifying Mistake. Is It a Crime? appeared in the Washington Post. The article pointed out that two decades ago, these horrifying incidents were quite rare; however, they have become more common since car-safety experts declared passenger-side front airbags could kill children, and recommended child seats be moved to the back of the car. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Parents of all ages and ethnicities do it,â&#x20AC;? the article said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It happens to the chronically absent-minded and to the fanatically organized, to the college-educated and to the marginally literate. In the last 10 years, it has happened to a dentist. A postal clerk. A social worker. A police officer. An accountant...It happened to a college professor and a pizza chef. It happened to a pediatrician. It happened to a rocket scientist.â&#x20AC;? In light of these realities, we would like to offer a few ideas to help you avoid such a fatal mistake: 1) Put your purse, cell phone â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or anything that is normally always on your person - in the backseat of the car when your child is there. That way, you are sure to check the backseat before you leave the car. 2) Keel a large stuffed animal in the car seat when the child is not there. Move it to the passenger seat as soon as you put your child in the car, as a reminder. 3) Ask your caregiver to always give you a call if you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t dropped your child off by the usual time. These are a few suggestions, but try to find whatever routine works best for your family. Please donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think this canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen to you. One simple step could easily save a young life.

Teacher, 2,000-year-old Blood King throw their Mom a birthday By Craig Bakay Reporter

“A TV series is kind of a 9-5 job,” Rick said. Actually, Rick credits his brother with being a part of the reason he’s been able to so successfully portray such an iconic fantasy character. “I wasn’t much into sci-fi and fantasy,” he said. “But Rob was and when we were growing up he watched a lot of it and it just kind of rubbed off on me. “When this part came up, I read it and thought ‘that’s me!’ “So I became determined to get the part and from the beginning, it all clicked.” For her part, Glynne wasn’t surprised her son would land a big part in a successful TV show. “I had a feeling because he would never give up (on being an actor),” she said. “Her family is the most important thing to her,” said fellow Central Frontenac Council said good-bye to CAO/Clerk John DuChene at its regular meetRed Hat Society member and ing last week in Arden. This was DuChene’s third stint in the position and perhaps this friend Alana Botting. “She’s just time retirement will actually stick. Put your feet up John, you’ve earned it. a really nice person.” Photo/Craig Bakay

Third time’s the charm


EMC News — Given that one of her sons is a 2,000-year-old Blood King with the power to force reality (more on that later), you’d think Glynne Howland might be used to expecting the unexpected. But when sons Rob and Rick drove her up to Kennebec Hall last Saturday night, she had no idea what was to come. The family has been coming up from Kingston to their Arden area cottage every summer since 1964 and Glynne moved there permanently in 1993. But somehow, something was different this night. “I said ‘we’d better not go in because something is going on here’ when I saw all the cars,” she said. “Then I saw Ruth Parson, who is an old friend from high school, and I knew something was up.” The ‘something’ was a sur-

prise party for her 70th birthday, which was a surprise because her birthday isn’t until August. However, her sons are busy fellows and they had some scheduling issues to work out. Older son Rob is a high school teacher in London with two young kids (Glynne’s grandchildren, Henry and Sophie) and Rick has this acting job — as Fitzpatrick (Trick) McCoreighan on Showcase’s Lost Girl. For those not accustomed to the show, it’s a weekly hour-long fantasy starring Anna Silk as Bo Dennis, a succubus involved in the mysterious world of the Fae. Rick plays her grandfather, Trick, who, as Blood King, also happens to be one of the most powerful characters in this fantasy world, as well as bartender at a pub frequented by all manner of Fae. The show is currently filming its fourth season, which can create some scheduling issues but not insurmountable ones.

Hooked on fishing

EMC Lifestyle - I knew from the start that I wanted fishing to be part of my summer water activities series, partly because everyone I know who fishes is more than a little obsessed with the sport. What is it about sitting in a boat with a line and rod waiting for fish to bite that is so appealing and addictive? I had to find out for myself. The most avid fisherman I know is my co-worker, Rob Purvis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You should talk to Mike Howe from Canadian Tire,â&#x20AC;? Rob told me. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll catch some really big ones with him.â&#x20AC;? I found Mike in the fishing and hunting department of the Gardiners Road Canadian Tire, which he man-

ages. As promised, he was more than happy to take me out on the water. In fact, Mike remarked that he manages to go fishing about 90 days over the course of the summer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which, if you do the math, works out to the vast majority of days during the season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I try to take as many people out fishing as I can,â&#x20AC;? he said, urging me to bring a friend along as his boat seats three people. The only person I could find on such short notice was my husband, Steve, who was excited to experience fishing for the first time himself. The next day, we found ourselves zipping across Loughborough Lake on Mikeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s extremely fast fishing boat, to a â&#x20AC;&#x153;hot spotâ&#x20AC;? between two islands where he promised we would find lots of fish. The number one tip Mike gives to fishing beginners:

sessed with the sport. The lake itself was so peaceful and gorgeous I could have stayed out there forever, and the feeling of a fish tugging at your line is extremely gratifying, even if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t end up actually hooking it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s windy, sunny, hot, cold â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I love being out there,â&#x20AC;? Mike remarked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love the sport of it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a challenge. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a hunt.â&#x20AC;? For beginners, Mike recommends checking out the National Pro Staff website at, which features all sorts of tips on fishing gear and techniques. Normally, fishing also requires a license, which cost between $20-$30 per year. (We went during National Fishing Week, when anyone can fish without a license.) Canadian Tire also offers guided fishing excursions, in addition to any kind of fishing equipment you could ever want. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re bringing in better gear every year,â&#x20AC;? Mike said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing their best to help people enjoy this wonderful sport.â&#x20AC;? He added that we are very fortunate in this region to have so many excellent places to fish. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got Lake Ontario, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got all these land-locked lakes, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got the Rideau system â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x153; he said, noting that the latter is his personal favourite. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fantastic fishery. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got everything you can ever ask for â&#x20AC;&#x201C; small mouth, large mouth, pike, trout, lots of different stuff.â&#x20AC;? Someday, I hope to be able to check it out for myself.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fish where the fish are.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;How do you do that?â&#x20AC;? I asked. Mike admitted that he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t locate the fish all on instinct, and showed me his down imaging equipment, which scans the structure of the lake. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Structure is where youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to find fish,â&#x20AC;? he explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If your whole lake is 10 feet deep, find the spot where it dips to 11 or humps up to nine. Or, find the spot that has a pile of rocks or clump of weeds. Generally speaking, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where your fish are going to be.â&#x20AC;? At the same time, Mike was quick to point out that fishing isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just about what you catch: â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have to fish for the right reasons. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re fishing to enjoy it, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re catching fish.â&#x20AC;? Once we arrived at our spot, Mike passed around some rods and showed us how to cast. It was actually quite a bit easier than I was expecting, and after just one or two casts I had a pretty good grasp of the technique. Before any of us caught a fish, however, we were distracted by a rustling in a nearby tree. I glanced over just in time to see an enormous turkey vulture emerge from the bush â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an amazing sight for a girl who has lived in the city her entire life. Mike noted that being in out in nature is a large part of what he loves about fishing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see stuff on the water that you never thought youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d see,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beavers, otters, ospreys, turkey vultures. Those things are out there, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to see those in your living room.â&#x20AC;? After another 10 minutes or so, Mike caught the first fish of the day â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a bass, which he deemed too small to photograph, so we immediately threw it back. The fish looked pretty large to me, however, as the only ones I had ever caught previously were tiny perch and sunfish off the dock at my grandparentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; cottage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the biggest fish youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever caught?â&#x20AC;? I asked Mike. He responded that it was a 34pound salmon, which he reeled in on Lake Ontario near Millhaven. Wow. I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even aware that we had salmon in this area, let alone 34pounders. During the hour or two that we spent on Loughborough Lake, we managed to catch about 10 bass between the three of us. One of the fish I caught was approximately two pounds. This seemed huge to my untrained eye, and I was quite proud of myself. Even judging by our relatively short fishing excursion, it was easy for me to see why people become so ob-

Tramps were transient back in Depression years EMC Lifestyle - Father was sure there was a hidden sign nailed to a tree, only visible to the countless tramps who rode the rails that said, “jump here... good food up the hill.” Deep in the heart of the Depression years, almost as if they were put there to remind us there was someone in worse shape than we were, tramps walked the back roads, rode the freight trains, and survived by begging for their next meal. Countless numbers found their way to our kitchen door, always around dinner time, looking for something to eat. They frightened me, although Father said they were harmless, and I was glad that if they did surface at night, we never saw them. My brothers were sure they often came up over the West Hill and slept in the barn where they were warm and away from the outdoor elements. They seemed to know, on the farm, the big meal was at the noon hour.  They also seemed to know when the family was all seated at the table, because that was when we would hear the gentle knock on the door.  They never had to ask for something to eat.  We knew why they were there.  Mother would look them over, and if they were clean, having taken a wash in the Bonnechere River before coming up the hill, they were invited in.  If they looked like they needed a hand-scrub, Mother would take out a wash basin of warm soapy water, put it on the back stoop and tell them to come in when they had washed up. The brothers would squeeze together on the bench and make room for the tramp, and Mother would laden a plate full of food, and I would watch mesmerized as the food vanished as if they hadn’t eaten in days, and there was a good chance they hadn’t. Father would try to make conversation, but the tramps said little.  And we five children clammed up as if we had lost our tongues.  I wanted to know where they had come from, and how they had become tramps, but of course, I too sat mute while the food disappeared.

would work for nothing. And that was how one of those tramps who rode the rails and depended on the generosity of others, became our hired man. He really became a member of the family, and I would often see Father slip the man, who was really a boy, a dollar when he could spare it. The tramps were a symbol of that era.  We knew not where they had come from, or where they were going. It mattered little what time of year it was...winter or summer, almost daily we could count on seeing a tramp coming up over the West Hill.  And they were never turned away.  They came hungry, and they left with full bellies and enough food to take them to the next stop on their endless journey.

slicked down, showing that he had taken more than a quick wash in the river. Just as he finished tucking into his second piece of pie he asked Father for a job.  He talked more than any other tramp we had ever fed.  He was what was called a “home boy”.   He came from England as a 12 year old, he said.  From an orphanage.  He was sent to a farm in the Ottawa Valley, where he suffered from abuse and endless hours of labour.  Father told him there was no money for a hired man, and besides we had three strapping boys to do the chores.  But the tramp persevered.  He told Father if he could sleep in the barn, and have three meals a day, and a Flat-Fifty of cigarettes every Saturday night, he



on his shoulder. And he would go as quietly as he had come, out the back door and down the hill, making his way to the railroad tracks. I knew he would be waiting until the next freight train rounded the corner at the very back of the farm.  It would slow down to handle the curve in the track, and Father said this was where they would jump on the train and go off to goodness knows where. We never saw the same tramp twice.  And they came in all shapes and sizes, and all ages.  Some of them, I thought, were no more than boys...young like my three brothers.  And I would wonder why they were tramps, and my brothers weren’t. Then one day I learned at least a partial answer to that question.  The young tramp that rapped on our kitchen door that day was whip thin, and as clean as a whistle.  His hair was coal-black, and

As quickly as they came, they spent just enough time to cram in their heaping plates of food, and then they stood and were ready to head out again. Mother would tell them to sit a spell, and we always knew what she was going to do, because it never varied all the time we lived through those Depression years. She would take a brown paper bag off the rack at the back door.  Then she would go to the bake table and make thick sandwiches of whatever meat we had had for dinner.   Always she would tuck in cookies or a big piece of pie, and then she would go to the ice box and with the ice pick chip off big slivers of ice and put them into a glass jar that at one time held pickles or preserves, and fill it with cold water from the granite pail. Often I would see the tramp wipe his eyes with the back of his hand, as he thanked Mother and tucked the bulging paper bag into the sack he carried on the end of a short pole resting

The Sharbot Lake Lake Plan Report, presented by Sharbot Lake Property Ownersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Association President Carol Coupland, is a little thicker at 75 pages, and includes a preface, index and such. But it also contains data like MPAC information and considerable information on fish species, a â&#x20AC;&#x153;bird inventory,â&#x20AC;? as well as a rather comprehensive listing of trees, shrubs and wildflowers. Coupland said the plan was a three-to-four-year project that was completed in two years. It will be available for free at the annual general meeting July 20 at Oso Hall and then for $10 thereafter. And although she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a lake plan to present, Big Clear Lake Association representative Theresa Smith did bring some concerns, the first being a request for septic reinspection and the second a request to look into what she called â&#x20AC;&#x153;illegal cottage rentals.â&#x20AC;? Smith said there are large cottages being rented out on a weekly basis but not registered as businesses, thus costing the township appropriate revenue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How do you know theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re being rented and not just lent to friends and relatives?â&#x20AC;? said Coun.

The hall was packed, the firefighters put on dinner for council and the crowd, and no less than five delegations made presentations, three of which were from the lake associations of Kennebec, Big Clear and Sharbot Lakes. In the case of Kennebec and Sharbot Lakes, the presenters used the opportunity to unveil their lake plans, both nicely bound and presented documents that used decidedly different approaches. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concise,â&#x20AC;? said resident John DuChene, describing the 14-page Kennebec Lake Stewardship Plan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s based on three principles â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to foster environmental awareness, to safeguard the lake/watershed/adjacent lands and to pursue common interests and concerns.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concise,â&#x20AC;? said Mayor Janet Gutowski. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That increases the chances it will be read.â&#x20AC;? While it may not be the voluminous tome that some lake associations have opted for, the plan does include a lot of interesting data and information which could be applied to most lakes in the area, with a special emphasis on how it applies to Kennebec. For example: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nutrient levels are currently in the mid-mesotrophic range. Any increase could tip the lake into eutrophic range with significant adverse effects. The pH of the lake water is almost neutral â&#x20AC;&#x201D; very slightly basic. At present, ze-

EMC Lifestyle - If you have a loving home, lots of time, and a touch of patience, the Canadian Guide Dogs For the Blind would like to reach out to you. The organization is looking for volunteers to help raise the next generation of guide and assistance dogs for this area. “It’s not that much different than owning a pet dog,” explains Steven Doucette, Guider Coordinator for the association. “The main thing is someone who has a lot of love.” The volunteers, who are called “puppy walkers,” are asked to adopt a puppy from the organization’s breeding centre in Manotick. Volunteers receive the puppy at eight weeks of age and raise it until it is between 12 and 18 months. At that point, the puppy is then transferred to the Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind’s National Training Centre. “The first stage of training for a guide dog is with a volunteer,” Doucette goes on. “It’s about raising a good dog.” The puppy walkers are expected to provide daily walks, play time, basic training, and a whole lot of time. The puppies shouldn’t be alone more than a couple of hours per day. “Guide dogs will be spending 24 hours a day with someone,” says Doucette. “So we start that process early.” Because of the time commitment, puppy walking will not be suitable for everyone. Yet many different types of lifestyles are ideal, according to Doucette. Retirees, people working from home, individuals that can bring the puppy to work with them, part-time workers, and even students have all been successful puppy walkers in the past. Homes with children, other dogs, and a variety of other circumstances have all been allowed in the

Enchanting and fascinating people….and their world

Mark Bergin

Musical metaphysics EMC Entertainment - Music lineages and connections fascinate me. More than 40 years ago, Ellis Marsalis, father of the famed jazz musician Branford Marsalis gave Harry Connick Jr. piano lessons in their hometown of New Orleans. Connick and the younger Marsalis became lifelong friends. The pair influenced Wolfe Islander Chris Brown early in his career. Brown has been a musician since his toddler years. His sister, older by two-and-a-half years, took classical piano lessons. “One of my earliest memories is reaching up to the keyboard and imitating what she did,” said Brown. “My sister studied with the Ursulines in Toronto. At three, they took me in to the nuns and I played for them.” He’s never stopped playing. “Music became my career during high school in Toronto.” He toured with a band from the time he was in his mid-teens until his mid-20s. Brown relocated to New York City in 1995. He’s still living in Brooklyn. He also found a wonderful getaway, an ancient home that once served as the post office on Wolfe Island. “I grew up on the road,” he said. “Being in New York was like travelling without having to go anywhere. Many of the teachers I studied with are there. I was drawn to the music and history that came out of New York.” When we got together on Wolfe Island, he was heading to Welland the following day to play in a gig with Sarah Harmer. Two days later he returned to New York City and performed that night at Rockwood Music Hall. When Chris Brown’s at home on Wolfe Island

he’s surrounded by instruments. The first I notice is an old Fender Telecaster. We talk guitars. He leaves the room and comes back with a 1943 Gibson acoustic for me to try out. It’s safe to say that a 70-year-old Gibson has nice tone. As for the piano on which he first learned to play, it sits in a room off his kitchen. “My mom shipped it to me for my birthday three years ago,” he said. When he was having it tuned and checked its innards, he realized that the piano had come full circle. “We discovered that it had been made in the S & R building.” Our conversation meandered around Gibson guitars, Neil Young, Vietnamese Buddhist Thich Nhat Hanh, plumbing, cats and social networking. I get the impression such philosophical touring could easily stretch through the night. After high school, Brown was accepted into Boston’s Berklee College of Music to study composition. “Just after I got accepted at Berklee, Branford Marsalis came up to me at a gig Harrick Connick was playing in,” said Brown. “He was convinced he knew me from Berklee. I told him I’d only Chris Brown at the piano on which he learned to play when he was a toddler. gone for five minutes.” His mother had it shipped to his Wolfe Island home for his birthday three Marsalis asked Brown, since he was already a years ago. professional, why he’d want to stop working in Photo/Mark Bergin music to go to school.

Abrams Brothers and Luther Wright, they’re all just right here in the hood. One of the things about the island that’s amazing is that it’s close enough to New York for me to work there and be back in Canada whenever I want. And it’s a really healthy artistic environment around here right now.” Over the next couple of weeks he’s working on several projects. “I have The Mermaids, a New York band, their album needs to be finished,” he said. “And I have to get Suzanne Jarvie’s album done. I’ve started working on new solo material. I’m writing things with Kate (Fenner) that we have to start getting down. In the last week I’ve been working on New York’s Rachel Loshak material.” The other side of his work involves social engagement. He’s doing an album completely in jail. “(The prisoners) are working really hard on this.” He’s also just wrapped up work with Jen Chapin (Harry Chapin’s daughter) in New York. Thanks to the Chris’ connection, you’ll be able to hear Jen Chapin at the Wolfe Island Grill on August 11. “She’s headlining the Oakville Jazz Festival, and I roped their gang into an Island visit on their day off.” That about sums up Chris Brown’s life. It’s a musical web with connections everywhere such that you can hear a big jazz festival headliner at a small venue on Wolfe Island. He keeps is all in perspective. Music is the all-encompassing sage for him, even in lectures. “I just did a TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design presentations) lecture about origins last week in New York,” he said. “I played and spoke with Oren Bloedow. That was fun

to have a great guitarist accompanying me. It calls up different details. When you add music to the context, things start to seep into your pours. Music brings another context. I like adding music at protests, events or lectures.” Past presenters of TED lectures include the likes of Malcolm Gladwell, Richard Dawkins, Bill Gates and Jane Goodall. Chris Brown is in good company. Brown’s own mentors and people he looks up to aren’t necessarily famous or well known. “Thich Nhat Hanh, a Vietnamese Buddhist bridges east and west in an incredible way,” said Brown. “And my hard-working neighbours on Wolfe Island. The woman next door is a community nurse. I come out to Wolfe Island in a blizzard and find that I’ve been dug out by a back hoe. And my plumber, Gord Greenwood. He’s like Moses, he can move water.” He says his home, built in 1880, never had running water. “Water was a mystery that Gord Greenwood solved for me.” Sitting down with Chris Brown is a journey in itself. The conversation is not linear, it flows like a Celtic knot. Within this labyrinth of musical and philosophical knowledge rests a man committed to sound. Things he says about others, just as easily apply to him. “Both Neil Young and Glen Gould have a deep involvement with sound and recorded media,” he said. “Talking music with Neil and talking gear with him and seeing ways he sets up, nothing is arbitrary. The same with Glen Gould. Every single note played involves a decision.” For more information:; and check out Chris Brown and Kate Fenner on Facebook.

Air conditioning plan gets somewhat cool reception By Craig Bakay Reporter

EMC News — It’s been a couple of terms now since Jack Nicolson was a member of Central Frontenac Council, but he still has a sense of political timing. Nicolson chose the council meeting in Kennebec Hall, on a particularly warm and muggy evening, to pitch something the Kennebec rec committee has been asking for for awhile now — air conditioning. “As you can see from this afternoon, from mid-May to mid-September, this hall can become unbearable,” Nicolson said in his address to council, as many in the audience and on council waved bits of paper as fans and brushed perspiration from their foreheads. “Air conditioning was one of the requests we made of council for this year’s budget but we never heard back,” he said. “My own suggestion is you might consider putting in a high-efficiency furnace and you could put air conditioning in then.” “You also had a sound system as a priority on your requests at that time,” said Coun. John Purdon. “Since you didn’t mention the sound system, I’m assuming air conditioning is your No. 1 priority.” “Actually, boards for the rink are our No. 1 priority,” replied Nicolson with a grin on his face. “Perhaps the rec committee can get some prices for this and it can be reflected in the costing for halls,” said Coun. Frances Smith.

“And since the Arden area residents use this hall, has there been any talk of fundraising?” said Coun. Tom Dewey. “We have discussed it but thought that was in the bailiwick of council,” said Nicolson. And the subject of hall rentals, representing the Happy Gang seniors, Wanda Harrison opposed the proposition to raise hall rental fees. “We feel any increase in fees will snowball back to all non-profits and affect donations for things like school fundraising and the snowsuit program,” she said. ••• Central Frontenac Council passed its controversial Safe Properties and Minimum Maintenance Bylaw at its regular meeting last week in Arden, albeit as a considerably less onerous version than what had been previously proposed. “I was very happy to read the final version with the weeds and long grass section omitted,” said Coun. Norm Guntensperger, one of the bylaws most ardent critics. “We now recognize that Mother Nature is with us.” ••• Central Frontenac gave its approval to the addition of two portable classrooms to be located on the tennis courts at Sharbot Lake Public School this fall, in recognition that the new K-12 facility won’t be completed in time for the upcoming school year. “Let’s hope they’re (the temporary classrooms) not there very long,” said Mayor Janet Gutowski.

Kate Kristiansen

Trifle matters - Don’t be fast, easy, cheap or fake EMC Lifestyle - My husband and I were reflecting at the breakfast table on how life has changed these past few years. Is it the result of our collective years of wisdom now that we are well into our forties? Or perhaps the change in careers, lifestyle, our daughter’s first year of high school? All of the above? Whatever the reason, today we are in a happier place than ever before. In 2007, we moved to Canada after living overseas, a great lifestyle change from the busy face-paced working environment we had both grown accustomed to. The goal was to take a year sabbatical to kick back and discover our needs for the next phase of our lives. It’s always important at any age to take the time to reflect. We could have just kept going, pushing forward, but what we realized (thankfully none too late) was that pushing forward never gave us the time to really be present in our lives. So many careers are changing. Everyone is rushing from one thing to the next. The use of cellphones to keep track of each other means there is never a time when we are not available. Individuals are subjected to office bullying and fears of job loss just to appease power hungry bosses. Take the time to stand up for what is important to you. Change can make all the difference. Our priority as parents never change. We would jump hoops to make a school trip or concert, and be home in the mornings and evenings. But, as soon our daughter was snug in bed we were back working again (Funny, I write this now as she sleeps soundly upstairs). Although, the difference is that it’s work that

doesn’t feel like work. While not the answer for everyone, taking a break and evaluating what is important was essential to our wellbeing. You only get one life. Live it to the fullest. My husband was previously in a sales and marketing position for a company in New Zealand. As luck would have it, the company changed to a distributer model and gave us the financial opportunity to return to Canada. I resigned my position and he his and we moved to Kingston to have more time as a family. We relished the time we had to walk our dog, eat lazy breakfasts and pick up new hobbies. Hubby taught himself to play the piano and electric guitar, we volunteered at our daughter’s school and generally had more time to think about what makes us happy. After six months of our sabbatical, I took a job, which excited me and enabled me to continue doing what I love. Hubby decided to return to school. He studied the Wind Turbine Industrial Electrician course and has never looked back. He has a job he loves one which contributes and makes a difference to the well being of others and the environment. That day at breakfast, as we looked back, we learned that we are happier since we took the time. We are more comfortable with this new life. I saw this great line written: you are what you eat so don’t be fast, easy, cheap or fake. I think it’s a good mantra for everything in life. Change is never easy. Returning to school was timely and financially difficult but better than being a fake in a dispensable world. Life is too short not to live

it to the fullest. This week’s recipe sums it all up. Trifle is not fast or easy, and if done right it tastes best when its not cheap or fake. So, don’t skimp on those berries and get the fresh whipping cream. Mom (who makes the next best trifle in the world) claims this recipe is now her new favorite. She suggests adding shaved almonds to the topping too. Enjoy this lovely summer berry dish. English Summer Trifle: Serves 12. Recipe from Summer 2013 “Food and Drink” Magazine Ingredients: 2 pkgs (195 g each) individual sponge cakes or dessert shells, about 12 ½ to ¾ cup (125 to 175 ml) dry sherry 2 cups (500 ml) each of blueberries, raspberries, blackberries 16 oz (500 g) strawberries 1-cup (250 ml) lemon curd 1-½ cups (375 ml) whipping cream, divided 2 cans (425 g each) Devon custard (I made the custard from scratch using Horne’s custard powder – recipe on back of tin. But’s easier with pre-made Devon custard.) 1 tbsp. (15 ml) granulated sugar Icing sugar (optional) Directions: To dry cake a little so it will absorb the sherry, cut into 1-inch (2.5 –cm) pieces and spread out on baking sheet. Leave, uncovered, on the counter for a few hours or overnight. For trifle, turn sponge cake pieces into a big bowl. While stirring cake, drizzle sherry over-top. In a separate bowl, combine the blueberries, blackberries and raspberries. Hull strawberries and cut in half or quarters. Stir with the other berries, then set aside about 2

cups (500 ml) for decorating trifle. Put lemon curd in a separate bowl and stir in ½ cup (125 ml) of whipping cream until evenly blended and smooth. To assemble, choose a 12-cup (3-L) straight-sided glass-serving bowl. (I have a Pampered Chef Trifle bowl and love it.) Cover the bottom with half the cake. Pour 1 can of Devon custard overtop and gently spread almost to the edges. (I went over a little. Trifle is messy but tastes sooo good.) Spoon the lemon curd overtop and use the back of a spoon to swirl over the custard. Scatter with half the fruit. Repeat the cake, custard and lemon curd layers. Add the remaining fruit. If making a day ahead, cover and refrigerate. To serve, whip remaining 1 cup of cream with granulated sugar until soft peaks form when beaters are lifted. Mound on the trifle. Decoratively arrange the reserved fruit on top and sprinkle with icing sugar, if desired. If you have any questions or have any suggestions for recipes I should try, restaurants I should visit email me at, or follow my blog at or on Facebook.

Follow some helpful hits to keep repair job ‘on the rails’ Brian Turner

Car Counsellor

EMC Lifestyle - A common situation that arises at dealership service/parts counters every day has a variety of approaches and the results can vary from great to dismal, depending on how things are communicated and unlike the old adage: a little knowledge can be a very good thing. Many vehicle owners are happy to have their vehicles serviced by their authorized dealerships and some prefer to stick with an independent garage or national/regional chain for reasons of trust, price, comfort and convenience to name a few. A good service provider, regardless of the shingle hanging at their front door, will always do their best to ensure their customers have worry-free driving.  To this end it’s a common practice for technicians to perform a general inspection anytime a vehicle is in for routine maintenance in order to spot and bring to the owner’s attention, anything that’s amiss and requires attention.  On newer vehicles, good service consultants will always keep in mind the vehicle manufacturer warranty as it may cover the costs of parts and labour for a particular repair or replacement due to a warrantable defect in workmanship or materials.  So it’s

not uncommon for a vehicle owner to end up at his or her dealership’s service desk with a recommendation from an independent garage to replace a tie rod end, or repair an oil leak for example. To understand how this relatively simply request can go off the rails, it’s necessary to take a look behind the scenes. First, some dealership service personnel take it personally when a customer opts to have their routine maintenance work done by another garage, and no matter how professional or experienced they are, these feelings can ruin the broth of a client transaction.  Some of you may remember how comedian Jerry Seinfeld made this look very funny in the episode where his technician kidnapped Jerry’s car after he questioned an estimate and wanted to take it to another shop for a second opinion.  Secondly some independent technicians may not be completely conversant in a particular carmaker’s warranty terms.  For example, suspension or steering joints may exhibit play or looseness, but may be within the manufacturer’s specs and therefore not a warrantable repair.  Some warranties require a physical oil leak or drip to exist before repairs are authorized and a damp gasket or some fluid ‘sweat’ isn’t considered reason for action.  Misunderstandings like this can escalate to arguments when a dealership completes an inspection, cannot find a warrantable condition, and then presents their

customer with an invoice for the technician’s time. But any auto manufacturer will tell you that regardless of where a vehicle is serviced, the warranty, as outlined in the owner’s handbook, still applies. So to make things easier for everyone, here are a few tips when dealing with this situation. 1)    If your independent tech brings something to your attention that he or she thinks may be covered under a manufacturer warranty or recall, get some specifics.  If something is loose: how loose is it?  Which specific component?  If something is causing a noise: why?  If something is leaking: which fluid?  Is it dripping or just sweating?  Ask for a written report to eliminate the risk of forgetting something or referring to the wrong side or end of the vehicle when returning to your dealership service counter. 2)   When communicating with your dealership, provide as much information as possible.  For example, rather than ask them to diagnose a noise, tell them your private technician has identified a fault with component ‘A’ or part ‘B’.  Ask them up front what their policy is for inspections that don’t lead to a warrantable repair.  Whether or not you choose to risk your money (on inspection charges) depends on how much you trust the opinion of your own tech.  Some inspections require little time (and therefore small fees) whereas some



jobs may involve multiple roadtests and/or special equipment and at city shop rates that exceed $100/ hour; it’s good to know where you stand before things get started. 3)   Dealers get paid by their manufacturers to complete warranty repairs and in some cases they are reimbursed at their retail labour rate with a healthy mark-up allowed on parts.  Some techs may complain that the time allowances carmakers list for certain jobs are rather thin, but overall, completing warranty repairs is a profitable business for the retailer. A full weekend of chrome events is on tap and the best place to start is at the Athens Farmersville Exhibition – Steam Show, from July 19-21 in Athens.

Prelude to kisses—and comic chaos of this play. The superior talent of the cast allows it to work. The play was written by Marc Camoletti and translated from the original French by Beverley Cross. Boeing Boeing opened in London in 1962 and ran for seven years. Bernard (Brett Christopher), an American, resides in a luxurious Parisian apartment and leads the happy life of a lessthan-honest bachelor. It’s safe to say that he has a laissez-faire attitude toward relationships. He’s engaged to American stewardess Gloria (Alison Deon). And Italian stewardess, Gabriella (Krista Colosimo). And German stewardess Gretchen (Tess Degenstein). Assisting Bernard in maintaining his lifestyle is spiteful French maid While Berthe (Anita Quantities Last W i t t e n b e r g ) .

It doesn’t take long until Bernard’s tidy life and his engagements begin to unravel. But will he learn to value things that matter? There is no weak link in this zinger. Each cast member fulfills a role to perfection. Within the context of such a strong play, I’m hesitant to centre anyone out, but Tess Degenstein gives the comic performance of the season. I asked Degenstein what strange place on the planet gave birth to her inspiration. “It’s in the writing itself,” she said. “I started from the passion that was in the role. I also thought of cultural things in Germany and the high emotion. That led me to opera, so I watched a lot of opera videos and wondered how I’d act if I was the grand dame in an opera company.” Degenstein took the notion of opera (there’s no singing in this play) and added the comic genius of an American director. “I watched a lot of Mel Brooks Tess Degenstein gives a comic performance second-tobefore coming to Gan,” she said. none in her role as flight attendant Gretchen in Boeing Boe“So opera and Mel Brooks were ing, now showing at the Thousand Islands Playhouse. my departure points.” Word on the street is that this Photo/Mark Bergin is a hit.

EMC Entertainment -Watching Boeing Boeing at the Thousand Islands Playhouse, I had to remind myself that this play is more than 50 years old. There were moments when I thought I was watching a Christopher Durang over-the-edge satire. It’s described as a classic farce, but in the hands of director Daryl Cloran it becomes a contemporary metaphysical study in relationships. What matters? What doesn’t? What role does integrity play in our lives? So many questions arose from such a hilarious production. Like any play of this style, there’s a fine line between the production being a farce and farcical. Split-second timing is crucial to successful production

performance of these roles is so physical. Everyone involved has a lot of movement training. The movement in this play is like choreography. It’s crucial to the comic timing. In rehearsals we worked as hard on movement as we did on character development. We had to get the beat down precisely.” In one scene, Christopher comes flying over a couch toward the audience. The plot took an interesting turn on opening night. “The couch busted when I landed on it,” said Christopher. “At intermission, the crew had to fix it. It wasn’t meant for that foolishness. Almost all the furniture is bolted down and reinforced with metal under the upholstery. We’re constantly rolling over tables and couches.” To find out the results of dealing with three fiancées, a French maid and a good friend all in one apartment, check out Boeing Boeing. Despite my description of the content of this play, this show is not inappropriate for older children. In fact, they’ll enjoy the madcap adventure and physical humor as much as adults, but on a completely different level. The production runs until July 27 at the Thousand Islands Playhouse in Gananoque. For tickets:

By Kelly Reid Correspondent

EMC Events - Both history buffs and athletes alike can look forward to the latest offering from Fort Henry, which will combine the two in a unique obstacle course race. “Cannonball Rush,” as it has been dubbed by the Fort and their event partner Trailhead Kingston, will be the first event of its kind for both Fort Henry and Kingston. The Cannonball Rush will be a five-kilometre race that traverses the grounds of the Fort as well as its interiors. “I don’t want to reveal too much,” smiles Trailhead owner James Malcolm. “I’ve been sworn to secrecy. But the Fort offers some very unique obstacles.” The Fort is making sure to incorporate its rich history into the punishing run. For instance, some of the obstacles will be based on military drills that go back more than two centuries. There will be a “shot drill,” a highly arduous British military task of moving cannonballs from one area to another. Racers will also be issued “rifles” made of wood to simulate a real soldier’s burden. “There will be a water feature as well,” Malcolm hints, though doesn’t elaborate. The majority of the course will be a surprise to the racers. “The obstacle style of race is very popular,” Malcolm goes on. It follows the style of Tough Mudder and other well-known races.

“This one is more friendly though,” Malcolm laughs. “It’s just for fun. It’s an accomplishment just to finish.” Malcolm also explains that even though Kingston hosts quite a few triathlons as well as marathons and half marathons, the city has yet to do any obstacle races. The Cannonball Rush will be the first of its kind for Kingston. The event comes as another step in Fort Henry’s recent revamping. “They are trying to create more events that can bring them more to the forefront,” explains Malcolm. Like the new multimedia sunset ceremonies and Battery Bistro, the race will show Kingstonians and tourists alike that the Fort has many features to explore. Fort Henry approached Trailhead with the idea and was looking to use some of their expertise in outdoor athletic events. Trailhead contributed to the marketing as well as to the manpower needed to run the event. “The goal is to make it an annual event,” Malcolm says. The race is open to anyone over the age of 18, as individuals or as teams. Teams can be anywhere from two to six members. Registration is still open, so interested parties still have a chance to get involved. After the race, a barbecue and awards ceremony will be held for the racers. “We’re hoping that the participants will hang out, and say and enjoy the Fort,” Malcolm says.

“I think that’s the joy of this job,” she said. “I mentioned my research for this project. That’s one of the wonderful things about this work, the research for every role is so vastly different. On one hand, I got to learn about Mel Brooks movies I didn’t know. On the other end, when doing Shakespeare, I get to delve into linguistic puzzles. It tickles my brain. Shakespeare demands something. You have the same intense and split second timing in Boeing Boeing. There are real parallels between Shakespeare and this work. It’s all about the timing and an understanding of the use of words.” Brett Christopher plays the role of the comic Casanova, juggling three women, in a role drastically different from some of the darker ones he’s played in recent productions (The Clockmaker, Vigil). “It’s the chameleon nature of the actor,” he said. “It’s why I like playing this role. It’s so diametrically opposed to the ones I’ve had in my last plays. The tone of this whole piece is light. That’s why you get into the business. You get to mix it up.” The cast works with a script that’s fun, but it’s one that demands good casting or this farce could be a disaster. “Daryl (Cloran, director) did a wonderful job in terms of casting,” said Christopher. “You’re casting for a real endurance test in this play.

1949 “Moose Jaw” Mercury now a “Sheriff” car EMC Lifestyle - James Dean drove a black 1949 Mercury coupe with wide whitewalls, dual exhausts and fender skirts in the Hollywood classic, “Rebel Without a Cause.” Ever since that movie was released in 1954, the 1949-51 Mercurys have probably been customized more than any other make or model, with many of them rendered identical to the one driven by James Dean. A more recent movie, “Cars,” inspired the transformation of the 1949 Mercury coupe owned by Dale McNinch of Tillsonburg, Ont. He writes: “Hi Bill, I was looking through a copy of the ‘Old Car Trader’ in 1983. In it was advertised a 1949 Mercury coupe for $500. I called Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, and talked with the man who owned it. “He said: ‘I go farm to farm buying scrap. At this one farm, they asked if I take whole cars. I said yes and they took me to the barn. In it was this 1949 Mercury. The kids had been jumping off the hay mow onto the roof. It had 1962 Saskatchewan plates. They Dale McNinch’s 1949 Mercury coupe transformed into a “Sheriff” car. Note the “Dean 49” licence plate. also gave me a 1951 Merc front end with rounded roof bent and rear window gone, I decided to make a convertible.
