Councillors split on planning services debate By Craig Bakay Reporter

EMC News — It’s probably a safe bet to say that the vast majority of residents have no clue about what a municipal planning department does unless they want to do something with their property. But for municipal politicians and staff, planning is a huge deal and it’s often a contentious issue when somebody wants to change the status quo on how planning services are delivered. And a discussion of planning services in Central Frontenac Township at

last week’s regular Council meeting in Sharbot Lake was no exception. Battle lines were drawn. Currently, Central Frontenac employs a planning coordinator, Cathy MacMunn, who also serves as deputy clerk and cemeteries coordinator. Much of the legwork and analysis is done through a consulting firm, Tunnock Consulting Ltd., whose owner/operator Glenn Tunnock has been handling Central’s planning since amalgamation. By comparison, South Frontenac Township has a planner/deputy clerk as well as a planning coordina-

tor. Frontenac Islands uses Frontenac County planner/ sustainability manager Joe Gallivan. Central Frontenac Mayor (and current County Warder) Janet Gutowski would like to switch to the County’s planning services. “I really think it’s time we have something in-house,” said Gutowski. “Maybe not full time but I would be in favour of engaging the Frontenac County planner.” “I concur with the Mayor,” said Coun. Norm Guntensperger. “Having a professional planner at Committee of Adjustment meetings would be beneficial,

as would having somebody from the area (Tunnock is based in North Bay).” But that didn’t sit well with a couple of other councillors. “I totally disagree,” said Coun. Frances Smith. “I think somebody who’s been doing this here for years and wrote the Zoning Bylaw is the way to go. “I think what we’ve got is just fine — just adjust the planning coordinators responsibilities.” “I agree with Frances 100 per cent,” said Coun. Heather Fox. “At amalgamation, Cathy’s position was ‘deputy do-all’ and she was also

deputy treasurer then. “We can re-work the position.” “Move responsibilities around?” said Coun. Jeff Matson. “That’s just going to make somebody else more busy.” “There’s an old saying ‘better the devil you know,’” said Smith. “I remember the Community Improvement plan for Sharbot Lake talking about fire hydrants (there are none in Sharbot Lake) and that came from County.” Other councillors were non-committal. “I need a couple more weeks,” said Coun. John Purdon.

Wolfe Island Ploughing Match goes on in spite of rain By Margaret Knott Correspondent

EMC News – Heavy rain in other parts of the Kingston region kept a number of horse ploughmen away from Wolfe Island’s ploughing match held this year at Jack and Theresa Broeder’s farm, expecting it would be the same on the island. “While it was a ‘fine rainy day’ luckily the ‘big deluge’ held off until most of this year’s 24 competitors were close to being finished,” said Wilma Sjongers, secretary of the WI Plowmens Association. “A lower number of competitors but a good match as always for both horse and tractor pulled ploughs on good lands.”



l Sa

w o n

Gathered under tents visitors and friends had time to chat in spite of the weather and enjoy a bite to eat. Others wandered the fields to watch first hand and up close the exactness and skill of what it is to turn a furrow. The 4 Chown boys Hunter ,Cole, Orrie and Reid (all under age 18) were ploughing this year, one or two of whom will be attending the International Ploughing Match in Roseville Sept. 1622 along with Tom Woodman and Dan Berry. Thanks to KFC (Nat, Kate & Paul Lollar) for the lunches provided for competitors, Tri Heat for fuel, the twenty-five business and individual event sponsors. Trophies and awards were presented at the end of

the day by the President of the “WI Plowmens Association” Wayne Grant. Competitions have been held since 1947 giving farmers an opportunity to show their skills handling their horses and walking ploughs. Now there are many classes with judges looking at the straightness of the lines and the depth of the furrow. The Wolfe Island Plowmen’s Association was created in 1956. Around Wolfe Island: * The water is still going down, George. * Business has slowed but activities have not. *Ferry lone up’s are far easier to handle now that Labour Day has passed. And speaking of the Wolfe Island and the ferry, it has been MTO’s policy to hire students to di-

rect ferry traffic at both the Barrack Street Dock and at the Marysville dock on Wolfe Island through the summer months mid June to September Directing traffic into the proper lines in Kingston, overseeing pedestrians and cyclists and keeping track of the time of arrival of trucks and trailers for boarding during the busy summer months is no easy task, It requires diligence, good humour, a lot of walking, and a stiff upper lip. On Wolfe Island it includes all of the above including, “eyes in the back of the head” to see cars breaking into the line up, cycling up and down the line to prevent it happening every day, rain of shine and listening to islanders and visitors frustrated at being left behind. and

visitors The line up (only one on the island) is long, curved, narrow along the street and can stretch to as far as the end of Marysville to east particularly on weekends. To this year’s summer students, a Belated but Very Big Thank You for a job well done to: Peter Johnson, Trent University; Melissa Lacompte, Laurentian U.; Pamela Chesney, Queen’s; Ethan Sorenson Guelph U; Camille Prior QECVI focus program, Creative Arts; Laura Douglas, McGill; and last but not least, Mike CoteDipietrantonio, St. Lawrence College.

Fairmount residents, staff, volunteers kick off fundraising campaign with a flourish By Craig Bakay Reporter

EMC News — Fairmount Home residents want a new gymnasium, or rather they want an upgrade to the one they already have, and last week they kicked off

a fundraising campaign to raise $200,000 towards an upgrade. And it’s looking good, with the campaign raising $37,000 on its first day. After the requisite pomp and circumstance with dignitaries being piped into

the garden for the customary speeches, Fairmount Home Administrator Julie Shillington summed up the process. “We have begun the process of redeveloping the auditorium,” she said. “It is a place to meet, create

and celebrate.” “I’ve been around long enough to know the sense of place here,” said Warden Janet Gutowski. “This project has the full support of County Council. “I’m looking forward to standing in a modern auditorium for the opening of our 150 th anniversary celebrations in 2015. Fundraising committee Chair Scott Ford, who is the owner of the Bayridge Shoppers Drug Mart, said his family has had a long-

standing relationship with Fairmount Home. He and his sister have both been consulting pharmacists at the home going back about 20 years. “I’m just speaking from the heart,” Ford said. “I remember being in the auditorium 18 years ago and thinking ‘holy crap, this is old.’ “So, to commemorate Shoppers’ 20-year relationship with Fairmount, we’re donating $20,000.” Temperature, humidity,

acoustics and lighting have long been the subject of grumbling in the auditorium, which is also the largest single meeting place in Frontenac County. Three-year resident Evelyn Twigg succinctly summed up why she was working on the campaign to spruce up the auditorium. “It’s a dark, dingy, crowded and depressing place,” she said. “It’s always too hot or too cold. “I’m donating $500.”

Costs of running Township remained relatively consistent, Council hears By Craig Bakay Reporter

EMC News — Central Frontenac Township Treasurer Michael McGovern has been busy crunching some numbers and overall the numbers seem encouraging. McGovern’s report was presented at the regular Council meeting last week in Sharbot Lake. As part of a provincial requirement, municipalities must create a Municipal Performance Measures report each year (which is to be posted on the Township website by Sept. 30 each year) detailing municipal spending on a template provided by the Province. “There are no huge variances from last year,” McGovern said. “Operating costs for local government are down, roads costs are up slightly, crime was down and the cost of waste management was higher. “Complaints about waste

management are certainly up, mostly about clear bags.” While numbers are available back to 2007 in many areas, the last three years are probably the most applicable, McGovern said in his report. “In 2009, the formulas for efficiency measures were revised to reflect changes in the reporting of expenses consistent with accrual accounting concepts,” he said. “I notice local government operating costs went from 3.6 to 1.8 per cent of the budget,” said Coun. Frances Smith. “Materials costs dropped,” said McGovern. “(And) there were some salary savings when the treasurer and deputy treasurer left,” said CAO/Clerk Shawn Trepanier. Fire services costs have remained consistent for the past three years, going from $0.70 per $1,000 of assessment in 2009 to $0.73 in 2010 and $0.70 in 2011, the report said. Policing costs were

$156.26 per person in 2011, down from $164.19 in 2010 and $157.44 in 2009. Costs for winter maintenance of roadways were up in 2011 to $962.78 per lane kilometre in 2011 compared with the relatively mild winter of 2010 when costs were $759.03. Costs in 2009 were $985.31. By comparison, those same costs were $408.04 in 2007. The biggest comparative price jumps were in waste management, with costs per household for garbage disposal jumping to $99.01 in 2011from $66.31 in 2010. The number of complaints per 1,000 jumped to 50 in 2011 from 0.8 in 2010. However, the percentage of solid waste diverted for recycling went from 29 per cent in 2010 to 41 per cent in 2011. This likely reflects the acceptance of more recyclable materials such as milk cartons, tetra packs, coffee cups and plastic clamshell packages.

Swim program instructors make recommendations to Council By Craig Bakay Reporter

EMC News — Enrolment at the Long Lake Swim Program remains strong (75 participants), but there are concerns about declining enrolment for the Sharbot Lake program (55 participants including eight for bronze courses) a report from the Central Frontenac Swim Program instructors Kirsten Hawley and Holly Dickinson said. (There were no programs at Clear or Eagle Lakes

this year.) The report was presented at the regular Council meeting last week in Sharbot Lake. The report also included five recommendations for next year: • Diving hazard — the rafts at both beaches were initially put out at an appropriate distance from the shoreline; however, once the water levels dropped with the temperature increase, the rafts were no longer at an appropriate diving depth. If the docks are not moved deep enough after the wa-

ter level drops, then signs must be posted indicating that it is too shallow for diving. • Cleaner beach — Parents indicated in a survey they would like to see beaches raked more often. • Water fowl fouling — With all the seagulls at Sharbot Lake, it is perhaps unrealistic to expect the dock would remain clean throughout the three-week season (and) the dock was not cleaned as frequently as it could have been. We strongly recommend the

dock be cleaned at least 30 minutes before the first lesson. • Aquafit — As the population of Sharbot Lake ages, the swim program will inevitably be faced with the challenge of what to do about the declining enrolment at Sharbot Lake beach. It is time to offer cardiointense Aquafit classes to adults (60+). • Poison Ivy — This summer, we had bouts of poison ivy at Long Lake beach. It is most prevalent along the roads where par-

ents park. (If) the municipality can neither chemically destroy nor physically remove the plants, signs must be posted notifying swimmers of their location near the beach. Coun. John Purdon said that it is allowable to use herbicides for dangerous plants and signs “have a tendency to disappear.” However, Coun. Norm Guntensperger said they

had “tried to fight poison ivy chemical at the school (Land O’Lakes in Mountain Grove) and met with very little success. “They kept coming back.” Coun. Tom Dewey suggested trying a plastic owl to keep seagulls away and asked “does that work?” Coun. Fran Smith replied: “If you can keep the owl there.”

11 Critical Home Inspection Traps to be Aware of Weeks Before Listing Your Home for Sale

altogether. In most cases, you can make a reasonable pre-inspection yourself if you know what you're looking for, and knowing what you're looking for can help you prevent little problems from growing into costly and unmanageable ones. To help homesellers deal with this issue before their homes are listed, a free report entitled "11 Things You Need to Know to Pass Your Home Inspection" has been compiled which explains the issues involved.

Kingston - According to industry experts, there are over 33 physical problems that will come under scrutiny during a home inspection when your home is for sale. A new report has been prepared which identifies the eleven most common of these problems, and what you should know about them before you list your home for sale. Whether you own an old home or a brand new one, there are a number of things that can fall short of requirements during a home inspection. If not identified and dealt with, any of these 11 items could cost you dearly in terms of repair. That's why it's critical that you read this report before you list your home. If you wait until the building inspector flags these issues for you, you will almost certainly experience costly delays in the close of your home sale or, worse, turn prospective buyers away

Here’s another take on tourism Craig Comment By Craig Bakay

EMC Editorial — The Land O’Lakes Tourist folks were supposed to be at Central Frontenac Council the other night making a pitch for support of a fishing show. They didn’t make it but we can still talk about tourism. Now these folks generally do a pretty good job given the limited amount of resources they have, but it occurred to me we might be missing the boat on a couple of things. For example, aside from the dark skies of North Frontenac to appeal to the skywatching niche group, we don’t really promote much in the way of attracting specialized inter-

est groups — those groups that may be few in number but can be fanatical in their pursuit of a particular interest. And that translates into tourism dollars. Among these are the “hunters.” You’ve seen them, they’re out there. They’re just not out here. There are all sorts of special interest groups dedicated to hunting down this unexplainable occurrence or that mythological creature sighting. Ghost hunters, UFO hunters (Roswell, NM has made an industry of it), Loch Ness-type monster hunters (Ogopogo sound familiar?), as well as various and sundry supernatural thrill-seekers all present potential groups to focus on. It might be possible to attract some of these people with the right pitch. Now, we don’t have a resident lake monster, nor are we a thought-to-be an extraterrestrial crash site. We’re not old enough to have many ghosts, at least

any interesting ones like Kingston (Ghost Walk) has. But what we do have is tons of ‘unexplored’ wilderness, much of it just waiting for a good legendary creature, and the related folklore to back it up. The obvious candidate is the Sasquatch, a presumably primate recluse previously thought to be primarily a western creature but recently the subject of investigations in New York State. However, the number of aficionados for these things is limited and it may well be that the Sasquatch market is saturated already. However, we do have several other candidates that might fit the requirements with the right publicity campaign (we may need a celebrity here and Dan Aykroyd comes to mind because he has credibility with these groups from his Psi Factor: Chronicles of the Paranormal show and a cottage in South Frontenac). Some potential ‘hunter’

In Our Opinion

baits we might want to look at include: • the Loup Garou, a classic werewolf known to have a North American genus • the Wendigo, a malevolent cannibalistic spirit that can possess humans, turning them into monsters • the Memeqwesiwag, the furry little people of Algonquin legend • the Thunderbird, a giant bird capable of generating great sheets of lightning when it blinks, and although generally thought of as a Pacific Coast icon, is also prevalent in Ojibway art. Essentially, all we need to do is pick one, have a few people claim they saw one (one or two sightings tend to turn into a lot more awful quick with these things) and then stick it all over the internet on sites that specialize in these sorts of things. I’m going to start printing up “I saw the Sharbot Lake Sasquatch” right away.

EMC Editorial – Not many women would have the guts to go barefaced in front of the camera, every line, blemish and imperfection visible to millions of TV viewers worldwide. Heck, with or without makeup there are many who would rather not find themselves in the viewfinder of the EMC’s digital lens, but do so grudgingly. Whether we agree with it or not, we live in a society where looks matter, so we were thoroughly shocked and impressed when we heard news that the cast of the CBS show The Talk hosted its Season 3 premiere sans makeup. Sara Gilbert, Julie Chen, Aisha Tyler, Sheryl Underwood and Sharon Osborne appeared fresh faced and in robes on the set of their talk show. The show’s guests, who included Jamie Lee Curtis, Michelle Stafford, Melody Thomas Scott and Katherine Kelly Lang, also embraced the no-makeup theme. It was a refreshing sight to see. We feel it is so important for women, especially young girls, to understand that celebs are regular people, just like themselves. We think people often forget that when not in front of the camera, or featured on the front page of a magazine, these celebs can likely be found running errands wearing little makeup, a messy ponytail and sweatpants. Frankly we’d find it more than a bit odd if they were all glammed up to hit the local corner store. We all have it in us to look red-carpet ready, but we think it’s important that we are all also comfortable in our own skin, sans makeup. We as women need to stop putting pressure on ourselves to look picture perfect all the time. It’s exhausting, not to mention a lot of work. Kudos to the cast of The Talk for having the courage to go au naturel for the camera. We hope that your gesture will perhaps encourage more women to appreciate their own natural beauty.

The Frontenac EMC - Thursday, September 20, 2012



EMC - Your Community Newspaper

Canadian playwright is an international success Mark Bergin columnist

EMC Lifestyle – Here’s a metaphysical question: does setting the bar high in your professional life mean that people expect a lot of you in your personal life? Or, if you set the bar low in your personal life, do people expect the same in your professional life? That’s something playwright Stephen Massicotte ponders. It’s not one of the deeper metaphysical issues he deals with. “When family or friends see one of my plays, they say, ‘You wrote that?!’” he said. “They seem surprised

that this guy they know, who is sometimes a slob, could do something like that. I set the bar high in my professional life.” Stephen Massicotte wrote The Clockmaker, which recently played at The Thousand Islands Playhouse. I gave it a rave review, which wasn’t difficult, considering it’s one of the best plays—Canadian or otherwise—I’ve ever seen. Recently, I sat down with Massicotte in New York to talk about his career and his creative work. He’s a down-to-earth guy with some brilliant and sometimes witty observations on the world around us. That includes his perception of theatre, or theater, since he now lives in the USA. “Theatre operates for me in the same way some people say religion works

for them,” said Massicotte. “I’d say this applies to theatre, movies and novels. There’s a sort of ritual to it. There is a community gathering where one gets to witness something significant and music is often involved.” He said there’s also a parallel to sports. “David Mamet writes about that. It’s not a matter of one event leading to a catharsis. You continue to go back to the theatre for a catharsis. It’s the same way with sports. A championship continually needs to be decided. There’s a drama that needs to be played out. It’s similar to the way we listen to the same piece of music. We know the piece, yet listen to it again.” He offered Hamlet as an theatrical example. “Despite knowing the ending, we want to see it played out,” he said. “It

serves all sorts of things. For me, it’s the philosophical and spiritual—spiritual in quotation marks, I don’t believe in the soul or anything supernatural. I’m talking about the psychological spirit, the intellectual spirit.” Which brings us to The Clockmaker, Massicotte’s metaphysical time piece. It’s complex, yet fulfilling, in a spiritual (quotation marks or not) sense. From the first evening I saw the play, I wondered what the playwright was thinking, and from what inner spark did this well-crafted work arise. “The Clockmaker came out of the blue,” said Massicotte. “I’m usually thinking about a play for a long time. There will be a notion in the back of my head and I can trace the origins. But I just started writing The Clockmaker and finished it.

I was supposed to be writing a play for a Stratford production. I had to tell them, ‘I have’t been able to write the play you wanted to write, but how about this one.’” He said the day he started writing The Clockmaker, he could see influences like Kafka, Nabakov’s Invitation to a Beheading, Koestler’s Darkness at Noon, and even Orwell’s 1984. But, to me, Massicotte’s work goes beyond the darkness typical of many of these influences. There’s humor, sometimes cynical, but still humor. There’s also a gentleness and romantic innocence within his work. He said The Clockmaker is one of the favorites of his own creations. The initial idea was to have two Napoleonic soldiers shooting at each other in an oldfashioned duel. That’s far from The Clockmaker plot, except for the metaphysics

What’s Happening

component, and the quirky use of time. “Depending who shot first, one guy could already be dead and a bullet could still be flying through the air,” he said. “One guy is on the other side already, whether it’s heaven, hell or nothing. I have a hunch it’s nothing. But in that nothing, you’re still having an affect on earth. It could be a painting you painted, the things you taught as a teacher, or subtle things like a recipe you created. Then there’s always your children. “The thing that can confuse people about Clockmaker is when they don’t get it, they think it’s a mistake,” said Massicotte. But he’s in control of when people come to an understanding of what’s happening. See Playwright page 11

The Frontenac EMC - Thursday, September 20, 2012


“I’m trying to create a ride where you laugh, cry, get shocked, and at the end have had a full panacea of emotions,� he said. “At the end, you feel cleansed. The only way to do that is to be choked up at a certain point and laughing your ass off at another.� Massicotte was born in Trenton, but grew up in Thunder Bay. He thought drawing, not writing, was going to be his vocation. “As a kid, I drew everything,� he said. “I never thought of being a writer.� But when an artist draws, he or she is also telling a story. There’s the visual drama of adventure. “I read a lot,� said Massicotte. “Reading is a key to writing. I loved books.� He attended Cambrian College in Sudbury for graphic design. He moved to Calgary for a Bachelor of Fine Arts in drama from the University of Calgary. He began a successful career in stage, TV and film acting. He’d never taken a creative writing course, but tried his hand at writing a play. One of his early scripts for a one-act play was The Boy’s Own Jedi Handbook, a coming of age story. Massicotte sees the “force� as a positive substitute for organized reli-

gions that have atrophied or become corrupt. He said that, like many actors, he dabbled with one act productions. Massicotte has written several award-winning plays, but it was Mary’s Wedding, a full length play, that really blew the lid off for him. It’s now been produced about 80 times throughout North America and the United Kingdom. “When doors fly open, you go where the door opens,� he said. When Mary’s Wedding played at the Westport Country Playhouse in Connecticut about five years ago, it received critical praise in the New York Times. Likewise, one of Massicotte’s Off-Broadway productions brought rave reviews. These New York productions meant he had to spend some time in the city. “I fell in love with the place,� he said. Because of his success, he was granted a three year artist visa. Finally, hoping to stay, he was able to obtain his Green Card for permanent residency. In addition to writing plays, TV and movie screeplays, Massicotte has completed a young adult novel called Silver. He said it’s in the Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings realm. These days, he’s in between projects, so is polishing one of his previous

Prayers get family through Dirty Thirties Mary Cook’s Memories By Mary Cook

EMC Lifestyle - We learned to pray at a very early age. Mother was a firm believer in prayer.   Father, not so much. Oh, he was a believer in God, but he often wondered why, when we were doing all the right things we were still poor as church mice.   Why we lost several cows when lightning hit the big maple tree on the West  hill under which the cows were seeking refuge in a storm, was

another question he asked. So other than Grace at the table at meal time, Father pretty well left the praying up to Mother. Although Mother was raised a Catholic, she became a Lutheran when she married Father. Nevertheless, when she felt she needed a special prayer answered, she wasn’t above resorting to her Rosary beads.   But she always made it clear to us five children, it wasn’t a case of what you used when praying, it was how often, and how fervently you did so. So every night before we went to bed, we were marched upstairs to what Emerson irreverently called “the scrunch corner”.   That was because we all had to

scrunch down around Mother’s knee when she settled into the old rocking chair that sat under the window in the corner of the room. It was in my sister Audrey’s and my bedroom, which was really the upstairs hall, and the corner we prayed in, was hardly big enough to hold all of us. I always tried to get in the middle, because then I could rest my head on Mother’s knee, but Emerson usually beat me to it. Mother would wait until we had all settled down around her knee, our eyes were closed and our hands were in steeples, then she would begin. Her first prayers were ones we said every night. Exactly the same, word for

word. And I wondered back then, if God got bored listening to the same prayers over and over again. When those prayers were finished, we then said special prayers for everything from rain, to good crops, to a bountiful vegetable garden and a good day of selling door to door in Renfrew. Mother never forgot the old woman who lived alone in Renfrew, Granny Hines on the next farm, and the minister’s wife, who Mother thought was a saint! They were all part of our nightly prayers. Of course, we were expected to come up with our own prayers when all the group praying was over.  That idea came to a great and glorious end when Emerson prayed that something evil would befall his very worse enemy at the Northcote School.   Mother said, what we would do instead was pray silently to ourselves.   I asked her how God would hear us if we didn’t say the prayers out loud.  Mother assured me, He would be well aware of my silent prayers. And so began a lifetime of silent praying. Our Lutheran minister certainly didn’t believe in

silent prayers I thought back then. In fact, his prayers were so loud, at the time I figured they could hear them in the United Church a stone’s throw away.   And I wondered if your prayers had an advantage if you took on the pained look that came across our minister’s face whenever he opened his mouth.  I asked my older and much wise sister Audrey if she thought he had sore feet, because not only did he have a pained look on his face, he had the habit of rocking from one foot to the other.   To be honest, I was so intrigued with the minister when he was praying that I couldn’t take my eyes off him, when, in fact, I was supposed to be sitting in the pew ram-rod straight, in deep concentration. Audrey said it had nothing to do with sore feet.   It had to do with the sincerity of the message.  I had no idea what my sister was getting at, so I just had to sit there, Sunday after Sunday, with my own thoughts. Then it occurred to me that maybe there was something to this silent prayer business. After all, if a whole lot of people were doing it at the same time, that alone

should have an impact and greatly impress God. And so praying silently became part of my life.  I’m afraid I wasn’t very good at it to start. I was praying for things that I had seen in the Five and Dime Store window in Renfrew, and even prayed one time that bad Marguirite would move to another country.  When none of these things came about, I decided I had to change what I was praying for. We also prayed every morning at the Northcote School. Right after Miss Crosby read a verse from the bible, she said the Lord’s Prayer, and we repeated it after her.  One day I realized we did a lot of praying out there in Northcote...there were the Graces at every meal, morning prayers at the Northcote School, our nightly prayers around Mother’s knee at night, and the silent prayers each of us were encouraged to offer.    I thought back then, with the Depression closed in around us like a tight vice, and every day a struggle for survival, the prayers, in whatever form they were given, were what really got us through the Dirty Thirties.

1950 Meteor “lead sled” no longer Doug’s dream car EMC Lifestyle - Doug Janney lives in Renfrew, Ont. He grew up in the ‘50s and ‘60s in the Applewood Acres area of Cooksville, now part of Mississauga, and remembers a highly skilled body man on the Lakeshore named Nick Rampling, who built custom cars and hot rods. The car Doug remembers the most was Nick’s 1950 Mercury convertible lead sled. It had a chopped white top, shaved hood with louvers, quad headlights, Lincoln taillights, bubble skirts, and lakes pipes. It also had a dazzling rich burgundy finish with several coats of clear lacquer, so Doug was told. In evenings after dark, he would often walk to the street where it was parked and dream of owning it. The opportunity for Doug to own a really cool car came many years later when an Ottawa painter was willing to sell his 1950 Meteor two-door sedan. The top was chopped four inches and the car had cruiser skirts, a black finish with purple ghost flames, and frenched headlights and taillights.

And the car was lowered, just like the cool cars from Doug’s youth. Under the hood was a flathead V8 engine with Isky cam, Weiand finned heads, Offenhauser 4-barrel intake, exhaust headers and lots of chrome. Also, recalls Doug, “it had dual Hollywood mufflers typical of my teenager days.” How could he resist? He bought the car, and later learned something of its earlier history. “I received a knock on the door. A man had heard I had the car and dropped by to tell me his aunt had bought the car new in Renfrew. She couldn’t drive and her daughter became the chauffeur. Later on, a body man in Cobden customized the car.” Doug was overjoyed with the car and thundered through Renfrew, went to cruise nights, and received a lot of attention. Then one day a serious vibration developed around 50 mph. One of the front wheel rims was getting ready to fall apart because the rivets holding it together had rusted. Doug found a stock 15-inch Ford rim in Kingston and this stopped the vibration. Then

Doug Janney’s 1950 Meteor lead sled later sold to Gerry Mulligan in Ottawa. one day a police officer pulled him over and warned him that his tinted windows were not legal. All this and the noisy mufflers played on Doug’s anxiety. “I was no longer enjoying the

car. A man in Ottawa made several calls wanting to purchase it and I finally gave in.” The Meteor was the Canadian version of the Ford and built only in Canada. All Meteors beginning

in 1949 were built in Windsor until May 1953, when Ford moved to Oakville. If the story of your car is published in this column, you will receive a copy of Bill Sherk’s latest

No luck for TV show fishing around for funding By Craig Bakay Reporter

EMC News — Central Frontenac Council didn’t exactly say no to Fish TV at its regular meeting last week in Sharbot Lake. But then it didn’t authorize a $5,000 expenditure to entice the TV show makers to come here either. It merely accepted for information a report making the monetary request. North and South Frontenac Townships have approved the expenditure. In the report, the producers claim an estimated 9,000 more anglers coming to the area as a result of a show, bringing with them an estimated $45,000,000 in “economic impact” over a period of five years. “This all sounds kind of fishy to me,” said Coun. Norm Guntensperger. “I don’t know that we want an additional 9,000 people fishing on our lakes. “Do we have any money in our budget for this? “Didn’t we have another show asking for money before this one?”

“Dimestore Fisherman did receive Frontenac Community Futures Development Corporation Funding and had a presence here for about a month,” said Mayor Janet Gutowski. “Fish TV is asking nine municipalities in Frontenac, Lennox & Addington and the Village of Tweed for $5,000 each plus matching funding from FCFDC.” But Coun. John Purdon’s comments probably had the most impact on the discussion. Purdon, known for questioning figures at the best of times, seemed perplexed by the report’s claims. “I don’t think you can explain where the computer software is coming up with these numbers,” he said. ••• Flag lots — The Central Frontenac Official Plan has no definition of what they are but after last week’s regular Council meeting in Sharbot Lake, the Township has at least one. Council approved a severance for the Kidd property

on Loon Lake which would create a ‘flag lot’, which is so-named because of a long laneway component resembling a flag pole to which the main lot becomes the ‘flag.’ Planner Glenn Tunnock described the lot’s owner as “his own environmentalist” who has planted 1,200 trees on the property in his recommendations of the severance. Coun. John Purdon pointed out, however, that while he was in favour of the flag lot concept in general and this severance in particular, the Township Official Plan and/or Zoning Bylaw has no definition of the term flag lot. Council instructed staff to include a definition in the upcoming revision of the documents. ••• In keeping with Central Frontenac’s policy of rotating Council meetings to each district at least once in a calendar year, next week’s meeting (Sept. 25) will be held in District 4 (Hinchinbrooke) at Piccadilly Hall.

Art in the Westport countryside columnist

EMC Lifestyle - Join the likes of French impressionist painters Monet and Renoir and the Canadian Group of Seven on Sept. 30 in the Westport and Rideau Lakes area. Westport is hosting the Paint the Rideau Lakes Plein Air Festival. The event is open to artists from far and wide. En plein air is a French expression meaning in the open air. It refers to painting outdoors, in the fresh air. It’s also known as peinture sur le motif (painting on the ground). The

they can register by phone,” said Georgia Ferrell, an artist who serves on the Westport and Rideau Lakes Chamber of Commerce. “But most of the artists do paint near Westport. There are so many beautiful locations like Foley Mountain and the Newboro Lock.” She said weather will not pose problems. There are many sheltered locations where artists can work, rain or shine. “The weather could not be worse than last year,” said Ferrell. “But even then everyone had a good time.” Ferrell explained that the Westport and Rideau Lakes area includes the region from Delta and Chaffey’s Locks in the east, north to Smiths Falls and westward to Westport. “The fall is perfect for Paint the Rideau,” said Ferrell. “The colours in the region are beautiful. Artists abound in the area. It’s fun for families and friends to come and spend the day enjoying the autumn outdoors.” Artists bring their own materials and can choose any place in the Rideau Lakes to set up their easels and paint. “Basically, it’s whoever shows up,” said Ferrell. She noted that well-known water colour artist Stephen Rothwell has committed to the day. All art must be returned to the Grist Mill Gallery for judging by 3:30 p.m. An awards ceremony and reception for the public will be held at the Grist Mill Gallery from 4-6 p.m. There will be a special category for those who chose to paint at Foley Mountain Conservation Area. There will also be a children’s category.

Art will be on sale during the reception and for the week following at Artemisia Art Gallery. Contact Georgia Ferrell, georgia@artemisiaartgallery. com, for more details. There are several prizes, including a People’s Choice Award. “The old mill was purchased for conversion into an artist retreat,” said Ferrell. “They’ll be providing accommodations and studios for artists. They’ll also be providing classes and workshops starting in the spring.” Ferrell, Artemisia co-owner, said she likes mythology and has always been fond of Artemis, the noble and venerated Greek Goddess of the hunt, wild animals, childbirth and young girls. A friend and fellow artist of Ferrell’s, Bonnie McLean, suggested Artemisia as a gallery name, in honour of Artemisia Gentileschi, a 17th century Baroque painter. Artemisia lived in an era when women were not considered to have enough intelligence to be painters. They were not accepted in the artistic community. “She lived in a world where women painters generally didn’t exist,” said Ferrell. Ferrell and McLean bought their own shop and opened Artemisia Gallery about three years ago. The gallery hosts exhibits, workshops, classes and other artistic endeavours

like poetry readings. There’s never a bad time to visit Westport, but autumn is particularly beautiful. The days are cooler, so it’s refreshing to wander the streets and enjoy the scenery. It’s a postcard-pretty town. The drive to get there is just as pleasant. If you like outdoor walks, Foley Mountain is ideal. Views from Spy Rock on the mountain are breathtaking. The Foley Mountain Conservation Area is open year round. Park in the village and you can wander for hours. The main thoroughfares and side streets are filled with quaint shops and pleasant cafes and restaurants. Artemisia Gallery is located at 7 Spring St. You’ll find The Cove at 2 Bedford St. A few weeks from now, you can enjoy Westport’s Halloween Festival of Pumpkins. You’ll see more than 2,000 pumpkins carved by Westport

residents. Once an important sawmill and grist mill town and later an important railroad shipping centre, Westport’s easy access by train allowed it to become an important tourist destination. The railroad and mills are gone, but Westport remains one of the most beautiful little towns in Ontario. Throughout the summer season, it’s a thriving tourist destination. But it’s picture perfect year round. The quaint shops remain open and the people are always friendly. Directions: Take Division Street north from Kingston. After you pass Highway 401, it becomes Perth Road. Follow it until it ends at Highway 42 at Westport. Turn left on Highway 42, then right onto Main Street. For more information: 613273-8775,

method of painting on-site outdoors became popular in the 19th century after paint became available in tubes. At the same time, field easels became readily available. Also known as box easels, they were portable and folded up into a box about the size of a briefcase. Easily carried, artists could travel and work in the countryside, or anywhere they chose. The methods and techniques of plein air painting remain popular in the 21st century. You’ll have an opportunity to see artists in action during the Paint the Rideau Lakes Plein Air Festival. Artist registration for the second annual Plein Air Art Festival will take place between eight and 10:30 a.m. at The Cove Inn in Westport. “If the artist will be working at a distance from Westport,

Internet safety workshop for parents scheduled By Craig Bakay Reporter

EMC News — In coordination with its fall open house, St. James Major Catholic School in Sharbot Lake will be holding a Safe (Internet) Surfing Seminar open to all parents and guardians in the community at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 24 in the church hall. There is no charge and babysitting will be available. The Open House and barbecue begins at 6 p.m. This will be the first time the school has offered this kind of seminar to parents, said vice-principal Nienke Hoedeman. “By becoming aware of the risks associated with the Internet, including a number of social media sites used by children such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, parents can help reduce those risks and be confident that their children are able to enjoy the

positive things the Internet has to offer them,” she said. The seminar, which will be presented by Susan Laughton of Kidproof Canada, was initiated by the school council but organizers stress that it was not precipitated by any current incidents in the community. Rather, members of the council recognized use of the Internet by dangerous groups and/or individuals as well as content that is simply inappropriate for children. “This seminar will give parents and guardians the tools they need to reduce the risks to their children,” Hoedeman said. As part of the program, St. James Major students will also be given an Internet safety workshop from Kidproof Canada. For more information, visit or call the school at 613-2793300.

Keira has great hair day as she donates to charity By LORRAINE PAYETTE Reporter

EMC News - What do you say when your child walks up to you and calmly announces that she wants to cut her hair and give it to some little girl who doesn’t have any? “Keira came to me about two years ago to tell me (this),” said Sarah Simpson of Seeley’s Bay, Keira’s

mother. “I had tears in my eyes when she was a little five-year-old and said, ‘Mum, I want to donate my hair,’ and I cried.” At the beginning of August the Simpsons created a Facebook group and invited all of their friends and family to help reach Keira’s goal of $800-$1,000 to help fund the cost of a wig. “Over the last few weeks we’ve had lots of people in

the community and friends and family stop by and give us some money,” said Sarah. “She’s very excited and I’m very nervous. I’m going to miss it. I have a lot of fun braiding her hair and curling it. We’ll find some new fun things to do with it, though.” Keira had 10 or 11 inches cut off, and the family is sending it to Continental Hair in Toronto, a business that makes wigs for children in Canada. “I thought of the idea myself,” said Keira, now age 7. “I’m going to donate my hair and they’re going to make it into a wig.” And Keira wasn’t satisfied with just giving her hair. She wanted to be sure that the wig was paid for as well, so she and her family started raising money to be sure it would happen. They will be sending the money along with the hair to help fund the cost of making the wig. “Mum took a picture of me and we put it on the internet and we started raising a lot of money,” said Keira. “We don’t have all the money yet. We’re pretty close, though.” As of Sept. 6, they had raised $669 and were hoping for the rest. In or-

der to get there, they have set up the page https://!/ events/368848533187261/ where people can see Keira’s haircut, learn about what she’s doing, and make donations to help with the wig. “I’ve been growing my hair for two years,” said Keira. “I won’t miss it when it’s cut, but Mummy will!”

Sarah thinks Keira will probably try it again. “When she’s done it once, we’ll see,” said Sarah. “She might like it short, so we’ll see. She’s never had it short. She’s pretty excited. She wanted to do it before school, but we wanted to try to raise the money first, so she’s been patiently waiting. “We’re pretty proud of her.” Keira will be receiving a

certificate which the family will frame and put on her wall so she can look at it all the time and remember what she’s contributed. And Keira hopes other people will want to do the same thing. To contribute to the cause, please go to https://!/ events/368848533187261/ or contact Sarah Simpson at lilsproutsdaycare@hotmail. com.

Keira Simpson, 7, of Seeley’s Bay, shows off the hair she just had cut at Countrystyle Hair on Drynan Way earlier this month.

Pittsburgh district residents more involved

longer than the typical asphalt shingles. He’s been married to his wife Esther for over 30 years. They have three boys - Brad, Jeff and Matthew. Pittsburgh Township amalgamated with the City of Kingston in 1998 but not everyone has accepted it, even after all these years, said Reitzel. It’s one of the first things he wants to talk

about. That, and how his constituents are more involved than anyone else. “They want to be heard, they want to be part of the city and have been for 14 years but there is still some negativity out there because of the amalgamation that took place and the way it did. A lot of them still don’t feel like they are part of the city and there is a whole host of reasons for that,” said Reitzel. One of the reasons is they’ve felt neglected, particularly when it comes to their parks. They feel they didn’t get a lot of attention until the last couple of years. Then there’s the bridge. The much needed additional crossing across the Cataraqui River. I hear it’s a nightmare to cross at rush hour, especially if there is a crash on Highway 401 or the causeway is closed. Even at one lane either way the causeway seems ridiculous. The people who reside in Pittsburgh district feel the same way. They want the city to do something about it and have for a long, long

EMC Lifestyle - Sitting in Brian Reitzel’s living room, he has a pile of papers at his feet. They’re various clippings of accomplishments. He wants to show them to me. I’m here to interview him. In the pile of papers is a story he wrote and had published. Another is

pamphlet on how, when he was part of the LCBO, he helped spearhead a fundraising initiative for Fort Henry. He’s particularly proud of that and he should be. He seems like an ordinary man with simple values. It’s evident from the crucifix on wall with a palm leaf hanging from it. He’s paying thousands of dollars to get a new roof, one that will last

They have ownership to the district even though we are part of the city now. They are engaged because they take that ownership.” He said he holds town hall meetings. “I promised I’d hold town hall meetings, which I do. They are well attended. That gives you a chance to really get a finger on the pulse of what your constituents are thinking about or what they want or what they want to see in improvements to the city. I just enjoy town hall meetings. You get very direct questions and they deserve to ask that and get an answer back,” he said.

time. Reitzel ran in 2006 on that very platform but didn’t get elected. He ran again in 2010 and got in. He said the city should be ready to ask the province and feds for money by at least 2014. All approvals will be done by then. All of this makes his constituents more involved. “I believe that people out here in Pittsburgh district are way ahead of others in the rest of the city just because they are that engaged out here,” said Reitzel. “They still have their stamp on (the former Pittsburgh Township).

Young cancer survivor leads Terry Fox Run at Landon Bay By LORRAINE PAYETTE Reporter

EMC News – With the release of a balloon load of wishes, Lansdowne headed into its fourth annual Terry Fox Run at the Landon Bay Centre on the Thousand Islands Parkway on Sunday, Sept. 16. Started by Lisa Marie Gow in 2009, the run gets more participants every year. And the Landon Bay Centre is more than happy to provide a starting point for such a worthy event. This year’s Terry’s Team member was McKenna Modler, a local resident and cancer survivor. At the age of 12, she has an inoperable brain tumour and has undergone 70 chemotherapy treatments, but it hasn’t stopped her from collecting more than $100,000 for

cancer research. A shining example of what can happen when you never give up, she finds herself a bit overwhelmed by all the publicity. Her current goal in life is to finish Grade 7 and head into Grade 8. And that looks like it should be easier than expected – her last report told her parents that her tumour has not only stopped growing, it’s started to shrink. “I feel great to be here,” she said. “It will be nice to just go for a walk for Terry Fox. I wasn’t expecting to be the team member for this year. I feel funny sometimes – I’d like to be here as just me. My fundraising is going pretty well. We’ve got a lot of donations, even after the fundraiser.” “McKenna’s having a hard time dealing with the


stardom,” said Scott Modler, McKenna’s dad. “She likes it, but she’s not used to that and just wants to help, she doesn’t feel like she’s a hero or anything important. She’s just being herself – a child that’s trying to make a difference. “The other day we got an e-mail from another 12 year-old girl who cut her hair for cancer and she wants to donate money she collected to McKenna’s Dream, and I thought that was very touching for a child to do. In her last sentence she says she just wants to help, and I think it’s amazing when kids seem to have more compassion than so many adults do when it comes to helping people out. People when they get older seem to make life more complicated, while kids seem to simplify things and understand them better. “I wish I was more like McKenna. She’s outgrown us in some ways, and it’s nice to see. She’s raised over $100,000 now, she’s getting close to $110,000, and it’s still coming in. She’s just a kid who wants to get back to her normal life, play with her friends. The community has been overwhelming in their support of all this. “I haven’t seen people wound up about something like this in a long time. Last time I remember was when I was young and Terry Fox was running through. I remember him being on the news and in all the papers.

When the timeS get tOugh, the tOugh gO … camping???

Photo/Lorraine Payette Lisa Marie Gow, event organizer, chats with McKenna Modler, Terry’s Team member, before the start of the annual Terry Fox Run held at the Landon Bay Centre on September 16. As a child, it made you feel like you were part of something really, really big, you felt like the whole country was coming together on something and maybe it’s just because McKenna’s my daughter, but to me it feels like everywhere we go, people know her. She was at McDonald’s a couple of weeks ago and somebody recognized her and they all started clapping. It’s really

nice to see the community come together for a cause, to see them feel that they’re all part of something that’s so much bigger than themselves.” At 9 a.m., McKenna and her family stood at the head of the line of runners to release a collection of very special balloons into the air. Each one carried the name of a cancer victim, whether still with us as a survivor,


someone undergoing treatment, or someone who has lost the battle. “It gets better every year,” said Gow. “We don’t know when it will happen, but we do know that as long as people keep caring, we will win the battle against cancer. Every donation, no matter how big or small, makes a difference, and we thank the community for their terrific support.” Place your ad in EMC Classifieds

Keeping one’s cool key when raising complaint Brian turner

EMC News - It’s not surprising that people are emotional about their cars, trucks, SUVs and minivans. After all, automakers spend millions every year on advertising to show their products off as if they were catwalk models or exotic beasts or birds rather than mundane examples of personal transportation.  We’re led to believe that if we buy or lease the right auto, we’ll be magically whisked to Edenesque locales, our children will love and respect us, and we’ll get the perfect mate: all in the first drive around the block.  If you think these emotions subside after a few years of ownership of a set of wheels, you’d be dead wrong.  Just imagine a new and much more powerful set of emotions which can erupt when a driver is suddenly faced with an unexpected bill to repair something he or she believed should have lasted longer, or been much cheaper to fix. I’ve had the opportunity to see the best and worst of both consumers and retailers.  I’m happy and proud to say that the overwhelming majority

in an attempt to provide some guidance, here are a few words to the wise. When you’re faced with a concern regarding any issue at any retailer, try to keep your cool. Raising your voice and blood pressure does nothing for the situation, not to mention your health.  It’s helpful in times like these to either deal with another person (preferably the dept. manager) or relax for a few minutes in a quiet area away from the traffic of a busy shop’s counter.  Good service consultants are very adept at diffusing anger and helping a customer understand the situation and by offering various options to minimize expense and inconvenience.  But even the best of them draw the line at personal verbal attacks.  When you direct negative comments of a personal nature, you’re almost certain to close the door on any resolution you may have been looking for.   When dealing with a manufacturer’s dealership, make sure your complaint gets all the way up to the top of the ownership chain before calling the automaker’s consumer hotline.  Like everyone else nothing gets a department manager or dealership owner’s back up than when someone goes over their head.  And involving a third party prematurely does

nothing to speed things up, so if you’re looking for a speedy resolution, try to keep things simple. Finally, sometimes we just get so involved in a problem that we can’t see the forest for the trees or separate our logical and emotional sides long enough to get things cleared up. In rare cases like these, it may be best to get a family member or partner to represent you and remove yourself from the quagmire. If you’d like to combine two great passions (wine and classic cars) head over to Ottawa’s Vendemmia (Grape Harvest Festival) Show and Shine hosted by the Italian Car Club of Ottawa on Preston Street, from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 22.  There will be a grape stomping competition and many other activities.  If you have any questions, opinions, or stories on anything automotive please drop me a line, or directly to listing ‘Question for the Car Counselor’ on the subject line or by post to Record News Communications, 65 Lorne St., P.O. Box 158, Smiths Falls, Ont. K7A 4T1.  When using regular mail, please supply a phone number if you seek direct contact (due to volume I can’t always promise replies). 


Car Counselor

of daily automotive interactions have been positive examples of what’s right with the auto industry but there have been a few examples of things gone terribly wrong. I recently received a letter from a consumer with a major case of ‘buyer’s regret’ over a used vehicle with various mechanical and electrical concerns purchased from an area retailer.  In this missive, our used car owner referred to the store owner as almost everything but the kitchen sink and most of those terms can’t be used in polite society or on these pages.  I’ve always been a fan of the idea that before you put anything in writing in anger; wait a day before mailing it.  The speed and ease of email dispatching makes this very crucial. Once it’s in writing and out there, there’s precious little you can do to retract it and in some cases it can lead to legal claims of libel.  I’m very understanding about verbal comments delivered in anger at a service counter.  Today’s vehicles can be very complex and difficult to understand, even by automotive professionals. It’s no wonder consumers get frustrated and sometimes take their frustrations out on service consultants or managers.  Fortunately when most good service people take their jobs, they grow a very thick skin.  But

Retribution may be best of this film franchise Brian Turner

MOVIE: Resident Evil Retribution STARRING: Milo Jovovich, Sienna Guillory, Michelle Rodriguez, Li Bingbing, Boris Kodjoe, and Pat Roberts Shawn Trew Paul W.S. DIRECTOR: Anderson RATING: 14A

My Take By mARK HAsKins

EMC Entertainment - I love the Resident Evil movies. They’re some of the slickest and coolest action/horror movies around, and Retribution is the slickest. Picking up where the last Resident Evil film left off, Alice (Milo Jovovich) is captured after the Umbrella Corporation’s assault ontUcKER the oil tanker. Alice By JoHn wakes up in an Umbrella facility where she can be interrogated by a brain controlled Jill Valentine (Sienna Guillory). Then in true Resident Evil fashion the lights go out, and Alice is mysteriously freed from her prison. Armed and dangerous, Alice starts to fight her way through the zombie hoards looking for a way out. Only she can’t do it alone. Enter Ada Wong (Li Bingbing) who comes to help Alice representing Alice’s new benefactor Albert Wesker (Shawn Roberts). The fight on the surface goes badly, and Wesker needs Alice, but first he has to free her from the clutches of the Red Queen. Wesker has sent an extraction team, but the facility where Alice has been taken is deep under the ice in Russia. It was originally a testing facility for the bio-weap-

ons containing a number of environments that re-created New York, Moscow, Tokyo and more. Alice and Ada have to fight their way through undead monsters, clones of old friends, and the different environments to meet up with the extraction team. All of this is controlled by the Red Queen who’s bent on destroying the entire human race. Retribution may be the best Resident Evil yet. From the mind-blowing slow motion action scenes, to the twisted mind games and plot twists, Retribution is everything I’ve come to love about the Resident Evil franchise. It was all the zombie action I could hope for, and a riveting story to tie it all together. I’m not saying Retribution is going to clean up at the award shows this season, but for what it is (which is a wicked cool zombie killing experience) you can’t beat it. It’s a great cast, and it was even better to see Michelle Ro-

driguez, Oded Fehr, and Colin Salmon’s characters return as evil clones. Rodriguez is especially good as a villain. Sienna Guillory is outstanding as Jill Valentine, and I love Shawn Roberts as Wesker. Li Bingbing is the perfect choice to play Ada Wong and Boris Kodjoe kicks butt as Luther. Of course these movies have always been about Alice, and there is no one better to play everyone’s favourite zombie killing heroine than Milo Jovovitch. From the way she puts on her leather armour, to the way she flips into a bone crunching kick, to the way she runs for her life Milo Jovovitch is stunning. Without giving anything away Retribution ends just like all the other Resident Evil films which is to say, if they don’t make the sixth movie I’m going to be very upset. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.
