EMC News — South Frontenac resident Scott Asselstine will be allowed a seventh severance on his property in Portland District after all, following Coun. Del Stowe’s request for reconsideration on the matter at last week’s regular Council meeting in Sydenham. At the Sept. 4 meeting of Council, Asselstine’s request to sever a lot from his property in order to sell the remainder was denied, with Council pointing out he had already had the maximum allowed under the Township’s Official Plan.

However, the OP does specifically say “residential” when pertaining to the maximum number of severed lots, and Asselstine was requesting a zoning change that would make the severed lot commercial, as he has a solar installation there and a contract with the provincial power company that he didn’t want to lose. South Frontenac Planner Lindsay Mills had recommended the severance be allowed in that there was no specific clause in the OP prohibiting the severance of a “commercial” lot. The severance was disallowed by a vote of 6-3, with Council deciding it would be

against the spirit of the OP, which is designed to preserve the rural nature of the Township by limiting the number of residential lots allowed outside of settlement areas and/ or subdivision developments. However, after voting against the proposed severance, Stowe had a change of heart and asked Council for the two-thirds majority needed to revisit the issue. “When I voted against, I thought he could eventually create a residential lot there but after Lindsay (Mills) told me no, that that wouldn’t be allowed,” Stowe said.

RECOVERING FROM AN ILLNESS

CAN BE COSTLY. Help keep your assets healthy with critical illness insurance.

One in three Canadians will suffer a heart attack, a stroke, cancer or another serious illness. With advances in medicine and medical technologies, your chances of survival have increased, but recovery can mean significant and unexpected costs. Critical illness insurance may be the best way to help take care of your financial health.

Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation Encourages Women to Learn More about Their Breast This Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Insurance and annuities are offered by Edward Jones Insurance Agency (except in QuĂŠbec). In QuĂŠbec, insurance and annuities are offered by Edward Jones Insurance Agency (QuĂŠbec), Inc.

- Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, Ontario Region

O

ctober’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month provides an opportunity not only to support the women in your life who have been affected by the disease, but also to learn about the importance of breast health and having regular mammograms. Breast cancer remains the most common cancer in Canadian women, with an estimated 22,700 women being diagnosed this year – more than 430 every week. Regular screening by mammograms saves lives because when women are diagnosed earlier, they tend to have more treatment options and a better chance of surviving the disease. Since the 1980s, advancements in screening, diagnosis and treatment have led to an almost 40 per cent decrease in the number of Canadian women dying from breast cancer. “With one in nine women being diagnosed in her lifetime, breast cancer is a disease that impacts us all,� said Sandra Palmaro, CEO, Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, Ontario Region. “The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation is supporting women in learning more about the importance of breast cancer screening and making informed decisions about their breast health.� Research shows that many

women are confused about what their choices are when it comes to screening. In fact, in 2010 only 46 per cent of eligible women were screened through the Ontario Breast Screening Program (OBSP). CBCF encourages women to learn as much as they can about the importance of earlier detection and having regular mammograms. Women are encouraged to visit www.cbcf.org to learn more about making a decision that is right for them about breast cancer screening. Through the summer and into the fall, CBCF has been visiting communities across the province on The Pink Tour,

travelling on a pink bus to help women understand their screening options and giving eligible women the opportunity to sign up to join the OBSP. On The Pink Tour’s last stop in Kingston on September 19, over 220 people came on board the bus. To date, more that 32,000 people have visited the bus from across Ontario. “Over the course of The Pink Tour we have learned a lot from our conversations with women about why more of them aren’t signed up for the program,� said Palmaro. “We learned that many women are confused about how, when and where to get screened, and many aren’t aware of the

Ontario Breast Screening Program or its unique beneďŹ ts.â€? Here in Ontario, women aged 50-74 are eligible to enroll in the OBSP to receive a free mammogram every two years and can book their own appointments directly by calling 1-800-668-9304. CBCF recommends that women in their 40s have a conversation with their health care provider about the beneďŹ ts and limitations of having a mammogram, to make an informed decision about what is best for them. CBCF is the largest nongovernmental funder of breast cancer research in Canada, and one of the largest in the world.

Under new business, Tinlin asked about the status of Bedford Hall, which has been targeted for repairs. “We’re getting a design done for a mechanical ventilation system including air conditioning, heating and dehumidifying,” said Stowe. “They also need the fire department to determine capacity in the hall for that,” said Vandewal. “But on the plus side, the mould wasn’t nearly as bad as first thought.” Also, never one to let an opportunity to continue a cause slip by, Robinson once again noted his displeasure with the placement of postal boxes in Harrowsmith. “I went and measured the lot (that the Township owns on Colebrook Road) and it’s 50 feet wide by 90 feet deep,” Robinson said. “That’s plenty big enough. “They had a bait shop and a Chinese restaurant there at one time.”

County unveils Official Plan Natural Heritage Study map By Craig Bakay

EMC News — Frontenac County unveiled a Natural Heritage Study in Sharbot Lake and Sydenham last week which will be one of the foundations of its new Official Plan. County sustainability manager and planner Joe Gallivan called it a “big step forward� and said the County will be looking for input on policies as public consultation continues for the OP. Michael Enright, a biologist with Dillon Consulting, the firm that compiled the data, said public consultation was necessary to un-

derstand the ‘significance’ of the data collected, which includes digital mapping of natural features in the County that uses system indicators such as percentage of forest cover. He said much of the data came from the Ministry of Natural Resources and follows the MNR’s proposed Provincial Policy Statement. “The mapping is based on existing data to meet PPS requirements,� he said. “The mapping process took conservation lands, plus terrestrial features, plus aquatic features to produce a map of natural heritage features.� The mapping draws heav-

‘My Little Pony’ shows she has the championship stuff at U. S. Nationals Reporter

EMC News — When Elaine Steele headed to Ashville, N.C., a couple of weekends ago for the Arabian Horse Association National Competitive Trail Ride, she wasn’t expecting much, other than to be competitive. After all, her No. 1 horse, a 17-year-old Arabian gelding named Chanticleer Shadow, couldn’t make the trip because of a slight injury sustained the week before in the Steele’s own competition when a red sports car barreled through competitors on Burke Settlement Road causing several horses to go off their stride and even into the ditch. That left Steele with Zena Warrior Princess, a gentle 14-year-old Pinto mare, who despite having won the 2010 Competitive Trail Ride in Mountain Grove, wasn’t really expected to make waves at the U. S. championship. After all, at just 14.3 hands high, she’s not that big. “As other people put it, she’s not my ‘good’ horse,� Steele said. “They were calling her ‘My Little Pony.’� But as they say, it’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog. When they began naming off the horses in the awards ceremony, Steele began to wonder if she’d somehow been overlooked as horse after horse was counted down towards the eventual champion. “I didn’t know how we’d done until the awards ceremony,� Steele said. “They went through all the other horses and I kept thinking ‘I hope they didn’t make a mistake or forget me.’� But when there was only one horse left to name, the 2012 U.S. National Champi-

on for the 70-Mile Half/Arabian/Anglo-Arabian National Championship Competitive Trail Ride, it was the little Pinto from Mountain Grove, Canada they hung the ribbon on. “I was in shock,� she said. “I didn’t expect it from her. “Really, all I hoped for was a belt buckle for completing the race (only 12 of the 21 competitors got those) and it wasn’t until that evening at the campfire that it all sunk in.� The competition was held at Biltmore Estates in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The massive mansion was built by the Vanderbilt family and features “an impressive trail, very tough but you’d expect that at Nationals.� Zena seemed to her championship all in stride, a performance that also included a ribbon for 2nd in the overall competition. That didn’t surprise Elaine’s husband Rick, who along with their son Michael and his girlfriend Courtney, served as her ‘pit’ crew. “She’s (Zena) very easy going,� he said. “At the truck stops, all the air brakes going off didn’t even faze her.�

Man, a six-year-old Mustang next year. Zena’s competitive days are likely over now but they’ll never forget her summer of 2012 when the little Pinto mare showed the big boys how it’s done. “You know what,� said Elaine. “She just went out and did her job.�

For their efforts, the Steeles came home with a really nice trophy, two large ribbons, a horse blanket for Zena and the belt buckle which Elaine was after in the first place. “The only cash thing involved is what you pay out,� Rick said with a laugh. But the Steeles don’t mind the expense; it’s something they love to do. Elaine has been around horses all her life, having been raised on a farm near Plevna. They have nine horses on their Lost Creek Ranch (including three boarders) and are looking forward to competing with Marlboro

Elaine Steele and Zena Warrior Princess went to North Carolina and came home with the U.S. National Championship for trail riders.

Gardening Expert Ed Lawrence welcomed to Wolfe By Margaret Knott Correspondent

EMC News – Gardening guru Ed Lawrence, who recently retired after 30 years as Chief Horticultural Specialist at Rideau Hall and for the NCC’s six official residences was a recent visitor to Wolfe Island. Lawrence is

the voice, so familiar to the many listeners of CBC radio’s Ontario Today’s, Monday noon time gardening phone in, where he continues to offer gardening information and advice. He came at the invitation and to the delight of the members of the island’s newly established Wolfe Island Blooming Gardeners

Club and an interested audience including many Kingston residents among them Marg Forbes ( who loves roses). “I met Ed Lawrence 20 years ago at a Garden Show at Rideau Hall in Ottawa when we were both younger and I wanted to come and hear him again” Ms Forbes said, prior to the evening’s

presentation, with a photo in hand of their original meeting. “Can you believe this?” Ed said as he laughingly enjoyed the picture (“Lots of black hair . I was slimmer then”), and the memories. Ed, introduced by the club’s Linda Thomas, wowed the audience gathered at the Wolfe Island Community Hall with his knowledge of plants, trees and shrubs, (Latin names and all), offering soil, planting and pruning advice in his own friendly and enthusiastic way. Lawrence stayed to answer every question posed to him by the attentive an equally enthusiastic audience. The information he offered was down to earth, of value to all gardeners at every level of experience. Without a doubt , a wonderful evening for all. Ed’s book “Gardening-Grief and Glory”, was available for sale and willingly signed by the author. Great gift for anyone interested in gardening. Around Town: 1.

South Frontenac awards tender for Perth Road project By Craig Bakay Reporter

As significant costs were expected for this project, construction was slated to begin in the fall of 2012, to take advantage of the slow construction season, and carry over into the spring of 2013 when the asphalt plants reopen, Segsworth said in his report. “This would allow the contractor to utilize their equipment through the winter and still complete the project’s paving requirements in a reasonable timeframe,� the report said. “An amount of $450,000 has been budgeted for 2012 to complete about half of the sewer main, curb, sidewalk and breaking of rock for the R0011669504

EMC News — South Frontenac Council awarded the tender to widen Perth Road through Perth Road Village at its regular meeting last week in Sydenham, and Public Works Manger Mark Segsworth said the number of tenders the job attracted (10) shows that the Township is starting to garner some respect in major construction circles. The contract, for construction in 2013, went to Morven Construction Ltd. For $932,317. The next lowest bid was $27,649

more and highest bid was $1,383,181, Segsworth said. Coun. Cam Naish said he was concerned that Council was committing itself to a 2013 budget item now, but Mayor Gary Davison dismissed the worry. “We are more or less committed to it anyways,� Davison said. “If we have to cut the 2013 capital budget, it will have to come from somewhere else.� “The people of Perth Road are looking forward to this work being done,� said Coun. Ron Vandewal. “The open house was wellattended.�

It must be tough to create a plan when you have to follow cockamamie provincial guidelines Craig Comment By Craig Bakay editorial@theheritageemc.ca

EMC Editorial — In a way, you kinda have to feel sorry for County planners Joe Gallivan and Peter Young as they try to craft an Official Plan for the Frontenacs at the county level. As Gallivan correctly pointed out last Wednesday night in Sharbot Lake at a public feedback session for the natural heritage aspect of the OP, the Province will be the ones to say yay or nay on the plan, so provincial guidelines (oh, the MNR and MOE bureaucrats like to call them provincial policy statements) will weigh heavily on any approach the County can take.

That would be OK except for the fact that the provincial approach seems to have been crafted by people who have no clue as to what’s actually out there in terms of geology, hydrology, animal migration patterns. Hell, they don’t even seem to know where all the trees are. The County, as is its wont, hired a consulting firm to compile data which will likely form much of the proposed OP. Now the Dillon Consulting folks did a nice job in coming up with a map that puts a lot of information at our fingertips. The problem is, the information all came from provincial sources (by the consultants own admission) and as provincial sources often are, the information is both outdated and/ or based on some misguided attempt to classify things into categories that don’t exist in nature. It was an interesting meeting from one standpoint. Although the ‘crowd’ that came to the ‘public’ consultation was

small (no surprise there, staff and journalists often outnumber members of the public at these things), the expertise there outweighed that of the ‘consultants’ by a considerable margin. That’s not really a knock on the three guys who did the report, but there’s no way three guys who look to be in their 20s (30something tops) can match the experience and knowledge of three retired guys who were sitting in the crowd. For the record, the three guys in the crowd were Gray Merriam, a former ecology professor who continues his work with the Friends of the Salmon River, Bob Garrett, emeritus scientist with Geological Survey of Canada (those guys never really retire) and John DuChene, former CAO/Clerk for Central Frontenac Township, who also has a managerial stint with the conservation authority on his resume. I don’t know what the County paid Dillon Consulting but it’s a good bet it wasn’t as

much as the expertise of Merriam, Garrett and DuChene is worth, so in that respect, the public information session was a helluva good deal for Frontenac County. The problem is, they probably won’t be able to use much of the advice the three wise men gave them. For example, Merriam questioned the use of a 1970s model for animal migration “corridors” that he called a “string of beads” which was discredited long ago. Apparently the Province didn’t get the memo. Garrett eloquently discredited the Province’s “ecoregion boundaries” as having no relation to the real “boundaries” based on the geology and soils, the two factors every thing else, including where water goes, is based on. The challenge, it would seem will be for Gallivan and Young to heed the wisdom of the elders while still trying to keep the provincial morons happy.

EMC Editorial – A Wisconsin TV news anchor made headlines last week when she addressed a viewer who criticized her appearance. Jennifer Livingston used a four-minute segment to read and respond to an email about her weight. The note, sent to her by a local lawyer, questioned whether Livingston was a suitable role model to her viewers, particularly young girls. The letter writer went on to say that “obesity is one of the worst choices a person can make and one of the most dangerous habits to maintain.” The email went viral after Livingston’s husband, who is an anchor at the same station, posted it on his Facebook page, writing: “I’ve posted about negative emails the station has received in the past, but this one delivered specifically to my wife, morning anchor Jennifer Livingston, has just infuriated me.” It clearly infuriated Livingston as well, and rightly so. In her response, she said the critique went beyond those that one can expect as a public figure. “I am overweight. You could call me fat and yes, even obese on a doctor’s chart,” Livingston says, adding, “I am much more than a number on a scale.” She then shifts her focus to children, saying she could have ignored the viewer’s letter had it not been for her three daughters. “We need to teach our kids how to be kind, not critical, and we need to do that by example,” she says. Livingston concludes with a message to young viewers: “Do not let your self-worth be defined by bullies. Learn from my experience that the cruel words of one are nothing compared to the shouts of many.” Since the incident, some have questioned whether Livingston was really bullied. Others have suggested her response was bullying in itself. Definitions of bullying describe the act as repeated or habitual in nature. Jennifer Livingston should be praised for calling for an end to the behaviour before it was repeated. Judging someone based solely on his or her physical appearance and using brutal words to express that judgement may not be bullying, but it is cruel and unnecessary all the same.

Plan submitted for Portland Waste Disposal Site, oh rats By Craig Bakay Reporter

EMC News — South Frontenac is prepared to send an operational plan to the Ministry Of Environment which they hope will be in place by the end of 2012, Public Works Manager Mark Segsworth told Council at its regular meeting last week in Sydenham. Segsworth said they’ve spent considerable time looking at the site and the study has provided a new approach based on better information. “We have a much better understanding of the hydrology of the area, where upstream is, where

downstream is,” he said. “Quinte Conservation has been very helpful in this area.” Segsworth said the action plan to be submitted to the MOE to mitigate environmental impacts at the Portland Waste Disposal Site consists of three major areas: • Water level management • Permanent capping of the site in areas that have been filled to approved contours • An improved operational plan that will be developed prior to the end of 2012. “The impact of this action plan will be analyzed and monitored over the next

two to three years to determine its effectiveness,” he said. “(And) I think it’s important for everybody to understand we’re not polluting the Napanee River watershed. “When it leaves our property, water will be up to MOE standards with the possible exception of phosphorus which may be occurring naturally.” Strangely enough, it wasn’t the report or plans that drew the most attention when the subject of the Portland dump came up. “One person told me there are hundreds of rats there,” said Coun. Mark Tinlin. “They said it’s because the capping material

is not clay, it’s sand and the rats are making tunnels in it. “They’re even ending up behind the Foodland in Verona.” Shaking his head, Segsworth said he wanted to “put to rest” rumours about rats. “First of all, rats at waste disposal sites are not uncommon,” Segsworth said. “Second, yes we had a bit of an infestation but we’ve addressed that successfully with a baiting program. “And third, why would rats leave a perfectly good food source at the Portland waste site cross a major wetland, to go to a store they can’t get into?”

REFLEX® is thick, tough and rubbery, and that means Truckbed Protection plus! Cargo Protection. RELEX® customers say the same thing over and over again; “With REFLEX®, everything in my truck stays right where I put it.”Hard coatings, in many ways similar to plastic drop-in liners do not prevent cargo from sliding around, resulting in damage to both truckbed and cargo. REFLEX® does not scratch your tools, equipment or special cargo, like furniture or appliances. While a hard spray-on coating may look good, it does little to prevent dents caused by impact and the abrasive surface will scratch the same cargo that you’re trying to protect. Thick, tough and rubbery also means road noise reduction. REFLEX® fill and seals all of the metal overlap joints like no other spray-on liner. Check out a sample of REFLEX® and compare it to other liner samples. You can see and feel the difference. REFLEX® is the best thing you can do for your truck!

Service intervals and avoiding automotive assault Brian turner

EMC Lifestyle - “Hello,
 I have a new Dodge Caravan.  According to the owner’s manual the first oil change is due at 8,000 km.  The dealership is telling me that in Canada the first change should be at 5,000 km.  This is supposedly because of harsher weather conditions in Canada.  I find this hard to believe.  If it were true, surely Chrysler would publish an owner’s manual for different areas of the country as the conditions are very different in say, Arizona and Michigan.  I am a single woman pensioner and feel I am being taken for a ride! I would really appreciate your opinion on this.” Sincerely Chris Thanks for the inquiry.  You’re certainly not alone when trying to match what an automaker recommends in their owners’ manuals and what a dealership service department may be telling you.  The biggest problem with longer service intervals is that for drivers that don’t commute on a daily basis they may not provide frequent enough inspections. If you drive less than 10,000 km per year,  you could go al-

It was found that road conditions were dry for 81 per cent of the incidents. “Limited available data suggest that there was evidence of alcohol and/or drug use observed in seven per cent of drivers and in 28 per cent of the pedestrians, toxicology was positive for drugs, alcohol or both. While two per cent of pedestrians struck by a motor vehicle will die, this rises to 48 per cent for intoxicated pedestrians.” Driver distraction was pegged as a possible contributing factor for 14 per cent of the collisions and in 20 per cent of the events, pedestrian absentmindedness may have been a cause according to the study’s authors. The report didn’t lay any general blame with either the driving or walking group but both could take some important lessons from this report.  As much as avoiding distractions while driving (such as cell phones, electronics, and such) is crucial to safe motoring, the same applies to those on foot.  While we have made inroads into improving some driver behaviours, other areas need work.  One of the most noticeable is audio system volumes, both in-car and in pedestrians’ ears.  When music is played at upper level volumes a major sense, hearing, is eliminated from the tools we need to drive and walk safely.  I’m not suggesting we need more legislation, just a lot more common sense.

If you have any questions, opinions, or stories on anything automotive please drop me a line, [By email to emc@perfprint.ca or directly to bjoeturner@hotmail.com listing ‘Question for

the Car Counselor’ on the subject line or by post to Record News Communications, 5 Lorne St., P.O. Box 158, Smiths Falls, Ont. K7A 4T1]. When using regular mail, please supply a phone num-

ber if you seek direct contact (due to volume I can’t always promise replies). Yours in service Brian Turner

most a year between service visits.  While the engine oil may not have any problem with this, there are hundreds of other components that are inspected during  a routine maintenance service and they may require lubrication, adjustment, or repair.  Keep in mind, your Caravan is equipped with an automated oillife reminder system and that short drives, or stop and start traffic, or operation in extreme cold or hot temps may cause this system to request an oil change as early as 5,500 km. My recommendation is to have an inspection twice a year.  Whether or not you get oil changes is up to you, but I’d at least have a tech  inspect the oil level and condition in order to  make an appropriate recommendation.  These services are usually priced at reasonable levels and often discounted as part of marketing and advertising programs.  The Office of the Chief Coroner of Ontario recently released a study entitled ‘Pedestrian Death Review’ which analyzed the 95 pedestrian fatalities in 2010 caused by impacts from motor vehicles.  Some of the statistics didn’t come as much of a surprise, such as: “It was dark or twilight for 57 per cent of fatal pedestrian collisions” or “Peak hours for pedestrian collisions were between 2 p.m. and 10 p.m. daily, largely coinciding with peaks in traffic volume.” But some of the conditions noted might raise a few eyebrows.

Miss Crosby prepares students for the world Mary Cook’s Memories By Mary Cook

EMC Lifestyle - Miss Crosby was fair to a fault, and yet she stood for no nonsense. Most of the boys in Senior

Fourth at the Northcote School were a couple heads taller than she was, but she had no trouble handing out discipline to any of them when the need arose. We all had a healthy fear of Miss Crosby, and that included Cecil and my brother Emerson, both of whom seemed to attract trouble like ants to a plate of honey. The strap that hung on the side of her desk from a cup hook was a constant remind-

er that if anyone stepped out of line, she would use it in a split second! And when she did, the whack was enough to raise her off her feet. So needless to say, just looking at the black leather demon was enough to keep us on our best behaviour. Back then the teacher was right up there in importance with the family doctor or the member of parliament. And each was treated with the ut-

most respect. Miss Crosby was lucky to live in the community, not like some rural teachers who had to “room and board” at one of the local farms. She could walk to school. And she had the patience of a saint. Bad Marguirite was enough to try anyone’s patience, but Miss Crosby knew exactly how to handle the girl who was the bane of my existence. Marguirite never did anything bad enough to warrant the strap, but she aggravated the daylights out of me, mostly because she was the only one in her family, and had the best of everything. A real leather school bag, for instance. And a tin box for her lunch! Such luxury. About once a year just about every family in the community would have the teacher over night on a weekend. That meant of course, that she would attend church with the family on the Sunday, and it didn’t matter what church they attended, the teacher was expected to go with them. And so Miss Crosby could

be an United one week, and a Lutheran the next. And what a thrill it was to have the teacher for over night! The house would have a cleaning from top to bottom, just like it got in the Spring or Fall! Floors were scrubbed up and downstairs, and of course, a spotlessly clean kitchen and bedclothes fresh off the line were necessary, and enough food to feed a thrashing gang would be prepared. Of course, when it was our turn to host the teacher, she couldn’t be expected to walk the 3 ½ miles my brothers and sister and I had to trudge to and from school. No Father would take the buggy in the summer and the cutter in the winter to fetch her to our old log house. And that weekend, I felt so smug. I knew for a fact that Marguirite had asked Miss Crosby at least three or four times during the school year to go to her home for the weekend. But Miss Crosby wouldn’t dream of that. No, everything was fair and

square with Miss Crosby. And Marguirite was constantly bringing a treat for the teacher. This time of year it would be an apple. Often Miss Crosby would have an apple every day from the hateful little girl with the drug-store-bought curls. And I would watch to see what the teacher would do with it. I never saw her eat the apple, but it would be taken home with her, and I liked to think she maybe threw it away when she got far enough away from the school! But more than likely it was put into a pie or apple crisp. I have no idea what Miss Crosby did with the boxes of hankies, the cheap tin cans of talcum powder, and the countless bars of soap she got at Christmas time. But I do remember getting a little note of thanks every year. She would make sure the notes were all written at the same time, and they would be on our desks waiting for us. The notes were never mailed. After all, it cost three cents for a postage stamp back then! She never seemed to have a big wardrobe. In the winter, it was a simple black wool dress, and in the summer a printed silk. She had a variety of crocheted collars that she attached to both to bring a variety to what she wore. And she wore black laced shoes with thick rubber on the heels. My brother Emerson said the heels were like that so that she could creep up on you without being heard. Miss Crosby loved the King and Queen. And she loved the bible. Every morning, of course, she read a scripture lesson, and we all recited the Lord’s Prayer in unison. We were supposed to sit ramrod straight in our seats, with our heads bowed, and our hands forming steeples for the prayer. And heaven help us if we were caught with our eyes open. And then we had to stand at attention by our seats, and Miss Crosby blew on a little tin piece that gave us all the musical note to start on, and with our right hand over our hearts, we belted out “God Save the King”. Even those who couldn’t carry a note in a slop-pail were expected to sing! Or course Marguirite could be heard in Admaston! Miss Crosby was high on manners. It didn’t matter who came to the door at the Northcote School, we were expected to get out of our seats, noiselessly of course, and stand at attention until told to sit down. If it was the inspector, Miss Crosby would introduce him, and we had to say, and again in unison, “Good Morning” or “Good Afternoon” and repeat the inspector’s name. When Mother said Miss Crosby was a saint, I believed her. Her salary was only a few hundred dollars a year, and Mother said she earned every cent of it. And when you left the Northcote School, having graduated from the Entrance Class, you were ready for whatever road lay ahead. Miss Crosby saw to that.

Apple Storage facility latest example of Splinter family’s lifetime commitment to Kingston

F

or more than 35 years, the Splinter family has provided commercial and residential properties in which members of the Kingston community live and work. Peter and Frances Splinter take great pride in this city. It is where they were raised and where they chose to settle down and raise their family. The Splinters believe in giving back to their community through their work and their charitable donations and involvement. Examples of that dedication to giving back are evident throughout Kingston in the renovations and construction projects that have beautified the city and provided countless opportunities to its residents. It can be seen in The Queensbury at Princess and Centennial Streets, which combines office and residential space with firstrate amenities. It can be seen in the Shopper’s Drug Mart and medical office development, also in the city’s west end. It can be seen in the range of homes and residen-

tial developments throughout the city where the residents of Kingston live and raise their families. Soon, there will be a new addition to the Kingston landscape. The Apple Storage facility at 351 Select Dr. will offer an unparalleled experience for local customers. The company provides complete storage services of an exceptional quality to match each customer’s unique needs. Apple Storage prides itself in providing first-rate storage facilities at a competitive price. Apple’s attention to detail and commitment to customer service set the company apart and make it the premier choice in more than a dozen locations in Ontario, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. With Peter Splinter Family Holdings at the design and construction helm, the Apple Storage facility is sure to be one-of-a-kind, offering both heated and unheated units in a variety of sizes. The facility also contains drive-up and ground-level loading storage units to help make the moving experience as easy as possible.

“Our mission is to provide exceptional business and residential accommodation without ever losing sight of what is important: our clients, our employees, our communities and the environment in which we live.” Peter Splinter, President

The Splinter team’s extensive background of over 600 years combined experience in the industry enables the company to find ideal solutions and the right fit for a company’s needs, a talent exemplified in the Apple Storage facility. It makes sense that the two companies have created this partnership, since they share a passion for excellence, customer service, and a deep-rooted dedication to their employees. The Splinters constantly strive to maintain the quality of their properties, not only in Kingston but also in Ottawa and Southern California, and are committed to working with clients to ensure they are completely satisfied. Another unique aspect of these properties are the solar panels the Splinters install. The company’s homes are built with added features that make them more energy efficient than the average home, and their commercial buildings have followed suit. Using renewable resources such as solar energy also saves money for tenants and helps inspire others

to think about the environment when building. Peter Splinter Family Holdings also endeavours to give back to the community in other ways. Over the last several decades the Splinters have been involved with the Limestone Learning Foundation, Success by 6, the Rotary Club of Kingston, Easter Seals Ontario, the Rose of Hope for Breast Cancer Action Kingston, the Cancer Centre of Southeastern Ontario, several youth athletic associations, and dozens of other

community-based organizations. Through building new properties and restoring existing projects, the Splinters hope to add to the beauty of Kingston, a city they love. While the company takes on a variety of projects, each and every one is completed with that in mind. To learn more about the Splinter family’s work in the community visit www.petersplinterfh.com. For more information about Apple Storage visit www. applestorage.com.

With 35 years in real estate and development, Peter Splinter Family Holdings is a company you can trust. We are committed to building strong relationships and contributing to our community in Kingston. Please to not hesitate to let our warm staff help you find your ideal location among our wide variety of residential and commercial properties.

Frontenac Paramedic Services Support Breast Cancer Awareness Month EMC News - In an effort to spread the word that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, many of the paramedics with Frontenac Paramedic Services will be wearing pink epaulettes on their uniforms. Pink gloves will also be issued instead of the standard purple. The paramedics are hoping the colourful epaulettes and gloves will generate discussion and encourage people to become better informed about breast cancer. Photo/John Harman

From Cattle to Cars:

Local entrepreneur has positive impact on community When the Phillips Cables’ plant in Brockville closed in 1996, Arnold Dixon figured it was time for a change. Having worked there for a quarter century, since the age of 18, Dixon eventually landed on his feet with a new job at Shell Canada, but he felt he wanted more. “I said to myself, if I’m going to do something different, I’ve got to do it now,” he recalled. That something different was to enter the world of business, a path that has proven successful. The Brockville and District Chamber of Commerce named Dixon, now 57, Brockville’s 2011 Business Person of the Year. “It was totally unexpected,” Dixon recalled. “I was, I guess, somewhat overwhelmed when they told me about it.” Dixon’s local businesses include Dixon car and truck Rentals and pre owned vehicle sales in Kingston, Kia of Brockville/ NaR E -E S

tional Car Rental business on Stewart Boulevard, the neighboring CARSTAR Collision, Brockville Dry Cleaners on Stuart Street, and Dixon’s Car Sales and Collision in Perth. He recently purchased the former Algonquin Public School building and is in the process of converting it into housing units for adult living. In addition to his operating several businesses, Dixon also farms 550 acres of land, raising beef cattle and Clydesdale horses. Of course, he does not do all of this on his own. “I have a lot of great people that work with me.” That great help includes his son, Adam, who takes care of the Perth business and his daughter, Ashley, who works with all locations. Dixon is also quick to credit his staff for the success of his businesses. A native of the North Augusta area, Dixon was raised on a dairy farm run by his father, Ivan, who also served

as Augusta Township’s deputy-reeve. He still lives on Dixon Road in Augusta Township, a road named after his great-grandparents. He also has four sisters and three brothers. A graduate of South Grenville District High School, Dixon always had an interest in business. He helped his dad with the farm’s books, and that big change he made, a year after the Phillips plant closed, was to buy the Brockville Dry Cleaners. Wanting to go further into business, he bought the National Tilden Car Rentals business from Stuart and Roma Simpson a year later. “I knew nothing about the car rental business and Roma stayed and helped train me and show me the way,” Dixon recalled. In operating that business, Dixon also sold used cars–to customers wanting to buy the rental vehicles they drove regularly—and eventually decided to dive into the car dealArnold Dixon ership trade.

The following tips and tricks will show you how to be a weekend warrior without having to hire a professional crew for assistance.

Finding the Perfect Products For a weekend makeover, focus on the following products: â&#x20AC;˘ Paint: Be sure to choose a semi-gloss or bathroomspecific paint, since the steam from hot showers and excessive water flow can make the bathroom a harsh environment. â&#x20AC;˘ Faucets: When selecting your faucet, consider style, finish, coordinating products and quality. The Moen Boardwalk bath collection, for instance, features a blend of vintage design and classic lines for a stunning look in any bath. â&#x20AC;˘ Showering: The shower is a place to escape and relax â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so be sure to find products to enhance this space. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s showerheads come in variety of designs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; wallmount, handheld, multi-function, rainshower â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or a combination of all. Find the one that suits your showering style and choose a finish to coor-

dinate with the rest of your bath. â&#x20AC;˘ Accessories: For added safety with style, try designer grab bars with accessories, which combine the safety benefits of a grab bar with one of three common bath essentials â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a towel bar, a paper holder and a shelf â&#x20AC;&#x201C; making each item functional and fashionable. Adding these discrete safety solutions will keep your bath looking great while still being practical. â&#x20AC;˘ Accents: Once youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve chosen all the hardware for your bath, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need to think of the softer accents to help pull your design together. A new shower curtain, decorative towels, throw rug and curtains will add the final finishing touch to your new space.

Your guide to Fall Home Improvement

Dress up a home with an interior door remodel With minimum remodeling savvy and a modest budget, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible to change some items in the home to be more in tune with personal style. Although many homeowners gravitate toward new paint colors or furnishings to revamp the look of different rooms in the home, replacing tired-looking doors is another affordable option. The switching out of doors can be a high-impact project for little cost. Think about the room in the house where the door(s) add little appeal. Perhaps a bathroom door has been marred with holes from a former towel rack. A bedroom with simple, flat doors may lack panache. Some doors have been warped by moisture or have been damaged. These eyesores can be replaced. A trip to the hardware or home improvement store can yield a number of options in new doors. Hollow core doors are typically more affordable than solid wood doors. If cost is a factor, select among the various styles in hollow designs. Switching out a door can be a challenging endeavor and is often easiest as a two-person

job. Some people simply use the old door as a template for the new door. Remember, not all doors are the same size (width and height) as the existing door opening. Therefore, some cutting and fitting will be necessary. Here are some steps to follow. 1. Measure the width and height of the old door. Many doors are a standard width of 13/8 inches, though older doors may be different in width. 2. Doors are sold as prehung doors or door blanks. Pre-hung ones are surrounded by a jamb. When using these doors, measure accordingly taking the jamb under consideration. Blanks are simply the door with no holes for hinges or locksets already included. 3. Remove the old door by taking out the hinge pins, starting from the bottom and working up. You may need a screwdriver and a hammer to tap out stubborn pins. Keep the pins in a safe spot. 4. Lay the old door on top of the new door and trace the dimensions for cutting. Be sure to line up the lockset edge so things will line up. There should be 1/8 inch clearance

on the sides of the door and 5/8 inch clearance on the bottom. 5. Use a circular saw to cut the door accurately. If only a little needs to be removed from the door, consider using a hand plane instead. If you need to remove more than 1 inch, take half off the bottom and top of the door so it will be even. 6. Place the old door back on top of the new. Mark the location of the hinge mortices (the recessed area and holes where the hinges will fit) with a utility knife and straight edge. 7. Lightly chisel out the hinge mortices so that they are the right thickness to house the hinge hardware. Test the hinge in the mortice. 8. Test the doorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fit within the opening to ensure all cuts are accurate. Plane areas if there is anything that is off or if the door rubs. 9. Mark and drill the space for the lockset and doorknob. Test the fit. 10. Attach the new door and interlace the hinges. Have a helper put in the hinge pins. 11. Put in the knob and be sure the entire set up works correctly. 12. Enjoy the new door.

WholeHOME Many people find that space around a home is a precious commodity after years spent accumulating different things. The basement, attic and garage are commonly used to store items that wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fit anywhere else. Though spring cleaning is a great way to cut down on clutter, a storage shed makes a great place to put those items you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bear to discard. Sheds come in many shapes and sizes. Readymade sheds can be erected on your property immediately, and some retailers will do so for an additional fee. The cost of a shed can vary greatly, from simple plastic sheds that cost roughly $100 to more customized sheds that cost $1,000 or more. After looking at many storage sheds from builders or prefabricated models, you may want to build one yourself. This way you can be sure it is customized to fit your yard and is the right color and style and made of secure and durable materials. While an adventurous project, shed building is typically within the skill set of the average homeowner. Also, a shed can be built in a

weekend or two, depending on how much time you can devote to the project. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how to get started. * Consult with your town, city, province, or municipality to find out the zoning laws regarding sheds. You may need a building permit if the shed will feature a permanent foundation or is larger than a certain size. Storage sheds greater than 120 square feet generally require a permit. There also may be rules regarding how far away the shed must be from the property line or even the height of the structure. It pays to know this information in advance so you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t run into legal trouble after the project has begun. * Find a style of shed that you would like to emulate. Drive around to different shed retailers or big box home improvement stores and peruse the stock. Choose the features you like and mark them down. Take photos of the ones you really like. * Research available plans. You can purchase shed plans or have an architect draw them up, but that may be costly. There are also free shed plans

online, some of which provide a list of necessary supplies. * Order your supplies and organize everything. A building materials center or a home improvement store may deliver all of your materials right to your home, saving you the hassle of going back and forth to get things piece by piece. Once they are delivered, sort through everything and mark whether the material is for the floor, walls or roof. If the shed will not be rooted to the ground but kept on skids or blocks, you will likely want to have some sort of base material, like rocks or gravel underneath to deter animals from making a home under the shed. * Enlist the help of a friend and get building. Once you get into a groove, you may find that the shed building comes easy to you. But the work will go more quickly if you have a friend available to help you hold materials in place while you secure them. Building a shed can be a rewarding do-it-yourself project that saves you money and frees up space in your home.

Your guide to Fall Home Improvement

How to save on home improvement projects such figures before choosing a project. For example, if your home is a fixer-upper, then one project may not be more urgent than another, something that may allow you to choose less expensive projects now while saving money for more expensive projects down the road. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also important for homeowners to know that figures such as those in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cost vs. Value Reportâ&#x20AC;? are just averages. Some projects might cost more than the average, while others might come in well under budget. To ensure your project is one of the latter and not the former, consider the following ways to trim costs off your next home improvement project. * Avoid the DIY movement if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have adequate experience. Many homeowners fall into the DIY trap, feeling they can pull off a project without

hiring a professional con-

tractor. While this is an op-

hiring a contractor to do the work. Some contractors mark up the materials as a means of padding the bill. If you research the project and learn about the materials you want to use, you can save a substantial amount of money buying those materials yourself and then hiring a contractor. * Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t overlook recycled materials. Buying recycled materials is another way to reduce home improvement costs. Bathroom fixtures, doors, flooring, and lighting are just a few of the materials that are commonly recycled and resold at a fraction of the cost of new materials. Shop around for stores in your area or peruse the Internet for recycled materials. Homeowners undertaking a replacement project rather than a remodel might even be eligible for tax breaks if they donate their old materials. * Choose projects that provide more bang for your buck. Another way to save is to choose projects that provide a strong return on your investment. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cost vs. Value Reportâ&#x20AC;? compares the cost of popular remodeling projects with the value those projects retain at resale. If money is a motivating factor behind your project, choose a project that will get you the most money back at resale. While the economy has not necessarily been kind to the home improvement industry, there are still plenty of homeowners looking to improve their homes. Savvy homeowners can do just that and save some money along the way by putting a few strategies to work for them.

tion for those homeowners with home improvement experience, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an approach thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best avoided by those without such experience. Homeowners who decide to go it alone on a home improvement project should know that mistakes are costly. One mistake could have you paying for the same materials twice: once when you begin the project, and then again when you need to hire a contractor after your efforts didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work out. A failed DIY project also costs you time, something homeowners hoping to sell their homes postproject cannot afford to waste. * Hire the right contractor. The best contractor for the job wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily be the one who comes in with the lowest estimate. The right contractor will know how long a project will take and what the materials will cost. The wrong contractor, who might lack the experience of his competitors, might make empty promises that ultimately cost you more money via overrun costs. Find a contractor who comes highly recommended and is willing to provide references and show you his or her past projects like the one youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hiring him or her undertake. If you hire the wrong contractor, the project may never be completed and you may find yourself in court, where the money you had budgeted for home improvements is being spent on lawyers instead. * Consider supplying your own materials. If you diligently research your project, you should be able to buy the materials yourself, even if you plan on

With the economy still struggling, money is tight for many homeowners. That reality can present a problem to those who want to improve their homes without spending too much money. The cost of a home improvement project depends on a host of factors, including the scale of the project and the availability of materials. Upscale projects like a full roof replacement will set homeowners back a substantial amount of money. In its 2011-2012 â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cost vs. Value Report,â&#x20AC;? Remodeling magazine revealed that the average cost of a such a project was nearly $38,000. However, a smaller project like a garage door replacement could be completed for fewer than $3,000. When deciding if a home improvement project is within your budget, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good idea to consult

How to winterize your lawn well. Additional debris can become up trapped under snow and hinder grass growth when spring arrives. * Cut your lawn short. Unless the season is unseasonably wet and warm, your lawn shouldn’t grow too much in October and November. Continue to cut your lawn until there is no visible growth for about two weeks. It pays to give it a short cut before frost arrives so that long piles of dead grass will not smother any new growth in the spring. Also, long grass tends to bend down upon itself, trapping moisture that can lead to fungal diseases like snow mold. * Aerate the lawn. Soil can be compacted over time, especially in yards that see heavy foot traffic. You can rent an aerator from a lawn supply store so that water and fertilizer can reach the soil. * Fertilize. Now is the time to give the lawn fresh food to overwinter and also replenish the strength of the root system. All summer long the lawn has been depleting the soil of nutrition, but autumn presents a great opportunity to strengthen those roots. Consider a slow-release formula designed for winterizing that

will feed the lawn all winter long. * Edge the garden beds. Take advantage of the cooler weather and slow-growing grass to re-edge around flower beds. Even though the grass above the surface of the soil will stop growing, the roots will remain viable and the lawn will still be sending out rhizomes and tillers to produce new grass blades in the spring. These can easily encroach on garden beds. Edge now so you will have less work to do in the spring. * Trim hedges and trees. If there are any overhanging tree branches or shrubbery blocking sunlight from reaching the lawn, cut back these areas once the foliage has thinned. Take advantage of your town’s leaf and twig pickup services. * Seed bare patches. Scour the lawn for bare patches and put down some seed in these areas. The cooler weather will enable the seeds to germinate without having to compete with weed growth. Once you have prepared your lawn for the winter you can bring in any lawn tools that need repair and have them set and packed away for the spring.

Every weekend of the last few months you have spent mowing, weeding, edging, and trimming your lawn so that it will look its best. In order to ensure your lawn makes a complete recovery after winter hibernation, you may want to spend the fall taking steps to help your lawn survive the winter months ahead. Winterizing a lawn varies depending on where you live and how harsh a typical winter is. There are certain key tasks to complete before you can rest for the winter season. * Remove fallen leaves and debris. Leaf cleanup is among the tasks homeowners dread the most. Raking leaves can be arduous, but it is well worth the effort. Fallen leaves can smother the grass and lead to dead spots and decay next season. Wait until the majority of the leaves have fallen from the trees before you begin to rake; otherwise, you could find yourself repeating the process throughout the fall. Mulched leaves can be added in small amounts to garden beds to provide rich organic material for next year’s crop of flowers. Be sure to pick up any twigs and other debris as

Bathing Bliss Before choosing a theme or colour palette for the bedroom, focus your attention on the bathroom first.

exude a clean style, like the Voss collection from Moen. Voss delivers uncomplicated glamour throughout the entire bath. With a full range of bath fixtures, including rain showers, faucets and coordinated accessories, your master bath can be transformed into a personal sanctuary that will last for years to come. Cozy Country Flair An uncluttered room with rustic décor pieces is sure to create a relaxing environment away from the hectic world outside. The simple aesthetics of an English country look accomplish this desired feeling by mixing patterns and décor elements comfortably and with a bit of flair. To create this look, start with a simple colour palette – such as blue and white or pink and brown. Patterned wallpaper, borders and curtains in floral or plaid prints are a great way to evoke that welcoming, country feeling. And keep your eyes open for one-of-a-kind antiques and wood furniture to accent

your country retreat. A perfect – and often inexpensive – place to start is your local antique store, flea market, or even yard sales. After all, one person’s trash is another person’s vintage treasure. Coastal Contemporary There’s a reason why tropical beaches are considered the fundamental escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The rush of the ocean and the feel of sand between your toes can bring anyone a lasting sense of tranquility. For this laid-back theme, use an upholstered headboard in a soft blue pattern to highlight the focal point of the room – the bed. Use whimsical décor pieces such as glass bedside lamps and palm plants throughout the rest of the room to complete the theme. Whether your style is more classic, country or coastal – or perhaps a combination – you can create a dream master suite retreat that fits your own personal style.

I do believe, I do believe in fairies Mark Bergin

EMC Lifestyle - After visiting Zena Bernstein’s Studio on Horse Thief Bay, you might find yourself believing

in fairies. Irish poet W.B. Yeats once noted that if you ask the Irish if they believe in fairies you’ll get the answer, “No, but they’re there.” Yeats wrote a book called The Celtic Twilight. In it, in his ever poetic manner, he wrote: “Hope and Memory have one daughter and her name is Art, and she has built her dwelling far from the desperate field where men hang out garments upon forked

boughs to be banners of battle. O beloved daughter of Hope and Memory, be with me for a little.” That “Art” of whom Yeats wrote could easily be Zena Bernstein. Art lives in her creative soul. Bernstein’s not Irish, but she knows the fairies are there, all around her. Her studio is nestled in a wooded area near Rockport, along the St. Lawrence River. As soon as you step onto the

on the island but that wasn’t going to be possible, so my mother and I bought this lot [where Horse Thief Bay Studio is] in 1963 and built the house in 1965.” Bernstein completed her Bachelor of Fine Art degree at Syracuse University that same year. She now lives in her Rockport studio with her partner, Ian McKhann, a fellow artist. Zena Bernstein uses a combination of watercolour and acrylics in her work. Through a meticulous process, she carefully places several layers of dots of pure colour to suggest subtle tones and shades. She refers to her creative work as a labour of love. Her art career began as a book illustrator in New York City. Her drawings range

from the natural world of mushrooms and insects to the unseen world of fairies and gnomes. In 1981 Bernstein officially immigrated to Canada. It’s her home now. It’s also the home of the fairies she draws and writes about. If you aren’t familiar with the name of this artist, there’s little doubt you’ve seen her work, especially if you have children. Bernstein’s art has graced the pages of many books. The best known is likely Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH, which went to Hollywood and became The Secret of NIMH. Bernstein was responsible for the delicate, life-like depictions of the animals described in the story. See Fairies page 35

short path leading to the studio, you enter another world. Branches twist and caress the studio in a way that seems otherworldly. I almost expect Bilbo Baggins himself to greet me when I walk toward the studio. “When I was young, my father brought the family to the Rockport area for the last two weeks of August every year,” said Bernstein. “It was a place we loved. When my dad died we thought we’d never get back.” But when her sister got married, Zena did get back. “I remember being out in the boat and fell in love with the river again,” she said. “My mother bought a little island in 1957 and we continued to visit every summer. I did my art there. We were thinking of winterizing

“A certain kind of life is being lost. In the book, I preserve the woods for the fairies.” Berstein said that art is important because it helps us understand things without needing words to explain. “It’s much easier to explain things in a drawing or painting,” she said. “Drawings tell us what went on in the past. With writing, we do not always know how to read ancient languages, but through the art of cultures like the Mayan, we understand their world. Pictographs and cave drawings tell us what went on back to the dawn of time.” Bernstein feels close to the natural world. In addition to her art, she also uses a microscope and magnifying glass to study things like leaves. “I love nature,” she said. “I don’t go to church. I have my woods here. That gives me a more religious feeling than going to church in a building. It brings so much peace and it calms the nerves and spirit. I really can’t feel lonely with all of this around me. I don’t think you can really feel depressed in a place like this either. All

life surrounds you.” There is one problem with the studio: It’s like visiting the humane society. It’s hard to come home without something following you. In my case it was “The Birth of a Fairy.” It’s on my living room wall. The

Bernstein breathes life into the world of the unseen. An exquisite piece I saw was a limited edition print titled The Birth of a Fairy. In nature’s womb, a fairy infant is born. Amidst autumn colours, filled with love and nurtured by the Earth, the newborn fairy could be a poster child for an environmental cause. Bernstein’s latest project is a book on the world of fairies. She’s finished the writing portion, which she started several years ago. Currently untitled, Bernstein unofficially calls it “My Life with Fairies and Gnomes.” She’s still working on the illustrations. “I’ve been doing it like a journal,” said Bernstein. “It’s seen through the eyes of an anthropologist who’s studying another culture. I’ve been learning the ways of fairies and gnomes, where they live, their psychology, tools they use, their holidays, what they eat, how they hunt and fish for food. I feel very close to them. It’s almost

like a play. I’m trying to stress that if people don’t take care of nature, the fairies will be gone. This is not a legend. It’s a story about life in the woods.” In her book, she tells the story of the many ways that modern developments affect the fairy world. Bernstein explained that, as we destroy the woods, pollute the rivers and affect nature, we hurt the fairies, gnomes and nymphs. She said that with monstrosity homes being built, beautiful woodlands are destroyed along the river. The noise from cigarette boats kills fairies. The Alberlings, fairies native to the area, live in a community that is almost circular, about two feet underground. They even have a water filtration system that involves charcoal and sand filtration. The other group of native fairies, Pucums, like to live in the cattails. In the winter they live in the fairy equivalent of longhouses. In her book, she explains, from an anthropological perspective, how beings like gnomes, elves and dwarves emigrated from Europe to North America during times of Viking raids and wars in Europe.

for a person going through cancer treatment. The collage itself is linked as an accordion-like book. Like many great stories, it ends with hope. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d say the Chroma-do Chronicles was the beginning of this show,â&#x20AC;? said Rebecca Cowan, who admitted that the anonymous â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;? of the story is herself. This was her process of healing from cancer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now I feel funny saying itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about me,â&#x20AC;? said Cowan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d made the book, I felt like that part of my life was over. But when I was undergoing treatment, people would ask how I felt, and all I kept saying was, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I hope in five years I can say this was something that happened to me.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Now she can say it. And you can see her artwork. Thankfully, the artist is alive to tell the story. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d planned to do a series of small books about her cancer experience. As a collage artist, she saves lots of pictures. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve saved pictures since the 1980s,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I put aside pictures that appealed to me for some reason. When I started working on the small books about cancer, I thought Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d go through my picture files to help develop the story. I had a brain tumour, and

had saved many images of brains and people with headaches. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d started collecting them 25 years before I was diagnosed. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe how relevant some of the material Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d collected was. It was spooky. Somewhere, some part of me knew.â&#x20AC;? Cowan participated in a comic book creation day at Artel in 2007. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Instead of all these small books about cancer, I made a big book about the whole shazam,â&#x20AC;? said Cowan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Collage is like an art holiday for me. Instead of drawing, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m making all the decisions about what to place where. I had a lot of old prints and etchings that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d started but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t finish. There were parts of them that were really good.â&#x20AC;? She decided to use her own prints as backgrounds for collages. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What was great about that was that I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t start with anything blank,â&#x20AC;? said Cowan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For the Chromado Chronicles, the prints in the background were from a series of prints I did in the 1990s called Childhood Lost. They were images about the accident that caused me to lose my right eye. It seemed perfect to use images from that life-changing experience as the background for

a story about another lifechanging experience.â&#x20AC;? Cowan has always loved to draw. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I was 13 and living in Montreal, I won a big art contest sponsored by the United Nations,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I got to go to the UN in New York City. After that, everyone in my life assumed I would become an artist. But I resisted being pegged.â&#x20AC;? She says she was afraid of being an artist and kept trying to different things. Finally, she ended up at theatre school in Montreal, studying costume and set design. She continued to study art and take informal drawing classes. Next she studied theatre at Ryerson in Toronto, then worked in theatre for a couple of years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t start art

school until I was 29,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I went to the Toronto School of Art and in the first week, I fell in love with printmaking. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been a printmaker since then.â&#x20AC;? For many years, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been an active member of Open Studio, a printmaking co-operative in Toronto. In the early 1990s, she started doing book work, creating series of small collaged books. She created the images and bound the books herself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d call them picture books for grown ups,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because of their narrative quality, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d call myself a narrative artist.â&#x20AC;? Eleven years ago, she moved to Kingston with her husband. See Exhibition page 37

Rebecca Cowanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Working Women and Other Collages, a mixed media collection, takes on some weighty issues: the roles of women, a journey through cancer, and family histories. Both playful and intensely serious, the works use found images, bits of text, drawing, painting, and sections of Cowanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old art prints. The Chroma-do Chronicles is a story about how a woman survived cancer. From terror to flights of fancy, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all part of life

DAYTRIPPER EXHIBITION From page 36

“I would say we were economic refugees from Toronto,” she said. “We looked at housing prices in Kingston and realized we could afford a pretty nice house here compared to Toronto. It was kind of crazy. We’d never been here. We wanted to be somewhere with a cultural life. We knew that

“It’s been a good lesson for me to hear how others interpret my art,” she said. “I’ve learned not to be tight about the interpretation of an image. Sometimes a person will see something completely different than I do.” She gave an example of a landscape she created. It included gray and blue clouds. A man told her he liked how she made the dolphins (the clouds). “He told me they gave

because of the university, there would be intellectual activity. It turned out to be a lovely place to live.” In addition to being a full-time artist, Cowan also finds time to do some teaching. She’s run printmaking workshops at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre. She also teaches a group in her home on Monday nights. As for what her art represents, that’s in the eye of the beholder.

an image of calmness and serenity,” she said. “That’s exactly what the clouds did for me. He saw Dolphins, I saw clouds, but they gave the same feeling. That was a really good lesson for me. If someone understands the feeling, you’ve done your job.” You’ll see some su-

perb work in the exhibition. One of my favourite pieces is Queen of the City. Another, part of the Working Women series, is The Architect. Each is haunting, yet hopeful and spiritual. Working Women and Other Collages will be on exhibit until October 30 at Verb Gallery, Wayfarer

Books, 85 Princess Street, Kingston. The gallery will be open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. through most days of the week. Sunday, noon – 6 p.m. Closed on Wednesdays. For more information, contact Rebecca Cowan via email: rgscowan@ gmail.com.

Brent traded his bicycle for a 1955 Chevrolet EMC Lifestyle - Brent Scobie of Renfrew, Ontario, writes: “In 1968 I acquired a used boys’ 20” bike frame. I modified the frame to install a larger back wheel with 3-speed gears, cut the front forks and welded homemade

forks on, and installed homemade “ape” hangers for handlebars. I also installed a 3-speed stick shifter on the front cross bar and topped it off with a custom blue paint job and new chrome fenders. “Later that spring, I pedaled down to the local soda shop, where a teenager asked if I would trade my bike for his car! Thinking he was joking, I said ‘Sure!’ Then he showed me his car – a ’55 Chevy 2-door. I told him I didn’t have a driver’s license. He replied: ‘I’ll drive it home for you.’ “We shook hands, I signed the ownership, and he drove the car to my parents’ house. I had him park down the street until I could get enough nerve to tell Dad. As he handed me the keys, he told me reverse gear didn’t work. “About a week later, Dad asked if I knew who owned

the blue Chev parked on the street. I proudly said: ‘It’s mine!’ Dad lectured me on why I shouldn’t own a car. I wasn’t even old enough to drive. Then he asked for the keys and started it up. That’s when I said it had no reverse. He walked into the house, returned with a pipe wrench, opened the hood, and gave the steering column a twist. Now all gears worked, including reverse! “Next day we towed my car to our cottage, where I learned to drive on empty fields and logging roads. I worked part-time on a farm for gas money. The next summer, I ruined the automatic transmission. A farmer down the road was junking another ’55 and gave me the standard transmission. I cut a big hole in the floor and made two rods sticking up. You shifted one rod to move into neutral and the other rod to move into

the next gear. After some grinding, it worked reasonably well. “Next summer, I chopped off the back of the car with an ax and made it into a tow truck. It was finally towed to a scrap heap. Years later, I was building a T-bucket roadster and I needed a good differential. I went to the old scrap heap and removed the complete diff assembly from my old ’55 and installed it in my T-bucket, where it still runs today.” Many thanks to Doug Janney of Renfrew for suggesting this story.
