Public works managers want ‘corridor’ roads treated differently By Craig Bakay Reporter

EMC News — The member townships of Frontenac County are looking at pooling their resources when it comes to major roads (Roads 38, 506/509 and 95 on Wolfe Island), Central Frontenac Council heard at its regular meeting last week in Sharbot Lake. Public Works Manager Mike Richardson told Council that his counterparts from the other township agreed at a meeting in North Frontenac to explore the possibilities,

especially if it could lead to increased funding from the Province. “We thought it would be a good idea to have Golder Engineering give us a cost on combining all of our GRIPPS programs from each municipality to develop a report on the different sections of the corridor and develop a management plan. “This would allow us to apply for funding as a collaborative group and provide a holistic approach to managing the corridor. “The cost for this will be promoted to the County to pay

for.”

The ‘corridor’ roads of Frontenac County were Provincial responsibilities until amalgamation in 1999 when they were “downloaded” to being municipal responsibilities. Central Frontenac successfully negotiated with the Province shortly thereafter for funding that allowed a one-time improvement to its section of Road 38 but some 13 years later, the road could use some work, particularly in terms of the yellow lines which are showing their age on dark nights and/or heavy

rains and fog. Richardson said Central Frontenac is in the process of doing traffic counts in conjunction with the PWMs plan but that doesn’t represent extra costs as the Township owns the traffic counter and it needed to be done anyways. “Part of the reason we’re doing it is funding requests often ask for it,” Richardson said. CAO/Clerk Shawn Trepanier cautioned Council not to expect immediate results because with the proroguing of the Ontario Legislature and an expected elec-

tion, “we got a letter saying that provincial grants may be on hold and anything requiring Ministerial approval is a no-go.” Also on the subject of roads, Coun. Jeff Matson asked about the new guardrails at Arden Road and Hwy 7 being too high and presenting a hazard to motorists seeing approaching westbound traffic. Matson said in the past, the guardrails were trimmed to a lower height and staff was directed to bring the matter to the attention of the MTO.

Gathering seeks to bring communities together est book, Fractured Homeland — Federal Recognition and Algonquin Identity in Ontario. She said the book took her 10 years to write, much of that spent interviewing Algonquins in Ontario and Quebec to get their feelings on land claims, status and simply being Algonquin. “Many of the people in Ardoch are my friends but I couldn’t simply duplicate their beliefs and put them in a book,� she said. “How do you present things that are your beliefs but still respect those whose beliefs you don’t share?� She spoke on the ongoing land claim settlement process and how many feel disenfranchised by it, especially those in the Ardoch Nation who chose to remain in their traditional territory but refused ‘status’ and as such were essentially excluded from the land claim process. She spoke of how traditional Algonquin lands were split at the Ottawa River, with two-thirds of Algonquin people in Quebec and one-third in Ontario. “The people here have faced more division than other Algonquins,� she said. “And we still need healing. “There should never

Frontenac Paramedic Service turns itself in to labour ministry By Craig Bakay Reporter

EMC News — In a somewhat unorthodox move, Frontenac Paramedic Services has reported itself to the Ontario Ministry of Labour as being in violation of the Occupational Health and Safety Act. However, there was a method to this seeming madness, as Frontenac County Chief of Paramedic Services Paul Charbonneau explained in a press release last week. “We have filed this report in hopes that a Ministry of Labour investigation will result in recommendations to the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care that immediate implementation of a flagging program at all Central Ambulance Communications Centres (CACC) across the province is imperative to the health and safety of all Ontario Paramedics,” Charbonneau said. The reporting stems from

an incident in June of this year when a crew of two paramedics responded to a call in Kingston. When the paramedics arrived, a resident threatened them with a firearm. “Fortunately, the crew was able to exit the residence safely and wait unharmed outside until police arrived to gain control of the situation,” he said in the release. Following the incident, Frontenac Paramedic Services requested that the address involved be flagged at the CACC, which would ensure that, if dispatched to that address in the future, paramedics would be alerted to the potential danger prior to arriving. Although the Ministry of Health has “rolled out flagging programs” for some dispatch centres, some across the province, such as the Kingston CACC, have not adopted the practice. As such, the Ministry denied the County’s request for flagging.

32

So, Carbonneau and Occupational Health Nurse Bonnie Carter contacted the Ministry of Labour on Oct. 23 to turn themselves in for breaching Sections 25 and 27 of the Occupational Health and Safety Act which states: “An employer shall provide information, instruction and supervision to a worker to protect the health or safety of the worker” and “a supervisor shall advise a worker of the existence of any potential or actual danger to the health or safety of the worker of which the supervisor is aware” and “take every precaution reasonable in the circumstances for the protection of a worker.” “We are very concerned about the safety of our paramedics and hope that this proactive move will make a difference for our front line staff who put themselves at risk every time they respond to a call,” said Frontenac County Warden Janet Gutowski.

Eye-in-the-sky finds buildings the Township didn’t know about By Craig Bakay Reporter

EMC News — If you have a building on your land that the Township didn’t know about before, expect to be getting a little higher tax bill in years to come. It seems, with the advent of GIS mapping and satellite technology, Big Brother’s eye-in-the-sky has been watching you. In a report to Council at its regular meeting last week in Sharbot Lake, IT coordinator Charlene Godfrey said analysis done at the County level “has identified 271 properties within the Township which are assessed as vacant which contain building(s).� “I’m amazed,� said Mayor Janet Gutowski. “That’s really wrong (because) those buildings have the potential for taxation.� And not only that, Dep. Clerk/Planning Coordinator Cathy MacMunn said “some of them are going to have to come in for minor variances. “We’re going to get

them with both barrels.â€? “Some properties on the West Basin of Sharbot Lake have buildings we didn’t know about but now we have the technology,â€? said CAO/Clerk Shawn Trepanier. Godfrey said that when DRAPE (aerial photography) was introduced in 2009, it was purchased as a tool for visual overlay and analysis with the GIS system within the municipality. “The tool became more valuable to a project started in 2010 to locate all properties coded in MPAC as vacant within the Township and overlay the aerial photography,â€? she said in the report. “This gave a visual to determine if the land was actually being taxed accordingly (vacant vrs. dwellings, taxed as vacant).â€? ••• The Tichborne-Parham Santa Claus Parade may be moving to an evening affair this year assuming that the OPP and other agencies are OK with the idea.

••• With the slated closure of Hinchinbrooke Public School next year, the future of the Parham Library (which is housed in a portable classroom at the school) is up in the air. Dep. Mayor Bill Snyder told Council at its regular meeting last week that it needs to deal with the situation now, suggesting a new library. Coun. Norm Guntensperger noted that the fire hall in Mountain Grove was designed with the possibility of adding a library at some time in the future and that might be a model for Parham, given that Council is looking at refurbishing the fire hall there. Coun. Jeff Matson suggested that the portable might be moved to the fire hall grounds as a temporary solution.

Since its incorporation in 2005, the University Hospitals Kingston Foundation has been delivering on its mission to enable our community to support excellence in patient care, teaching and research at the university hospitals of Kingston through raising funds and awareness. Because of the generosity of more than 40,000 people, organizations and businesses in our region, UHKF has raised almost $80 million in cash and pledges to support capital redevelopment, patient care, research and education at our hospitals. UHKF fundraising supports priorities that are defined by Hotel Dieu Hospital, Kingston General Hospital and Providence Care. Though the solicitation of gifts has not been focused on specific priorities, UHKF accepts restricted gifts to all areas of patient care, research and education within any of the three hospitals and ensures that the restrictions attached to gifts are complied with in the use of the funds. Last week we shared a few examples of how equipment purchased through donations makes a difference from examples our of our Because of You Community Report. This week we change our focus to education and research. As a university centre, research is an important activity not only for advancing new techniques and technologies, but also to ensure we are able to attract the best and brightest clinicians to Kingston. “Research is where the answers are going to come from. That’s where the treatments of the future are going to derive - from researchers such as myself and many others. It’s an investment in the future for new understanding of disease, new treatments and ultimately, for better patient care.” – Dr. Anne Ellis A new initiative in support of research was

launched by UHKF this year, called the Women’s Giving Circle. It is a group of community women of diverse backgrounds and interests who know that we are able to do more together than as individuals, and desire to have a real and sustainable impact on health care at our hospitals. The members believe that there is incredible potential being nurtured in our medical research community and understand that without base funding, many important research projects are challenged to move past the concept and design phase to implementation and impact. As this region’s teaching and research hospitals, staff education is very important in ensuring our staff has up-to-date expertise and skills that help people across Southeastern Ontario. Funds to support education of staff take many forms, such as bursaries and awards to support continuing education or outright clinical education. They also fund conferences and other outside events where staff can learn everything from the latest medication to care trends. “Without those dollars, our educator wouldn’t be able to run a course that has allowed not just our nurses, but anyone wanting to know how to work with and empathize with palliative care patients – it’s completely funded because of donation dollars.” – Marie-Jo Cleghorn, RN

The University Hospitals Kingston Foundation is the fundraising arm for Hotel Dieu Hospital, Kingston General Hospital and Providence Care. Created in 2005, the Foundation raises money for programs, equipment, education and research that benefit the 500,000 people in Kingston and Southeastern Ontario served by the three teaching hospitals.

Stringent property standards proposal rejected by Council By Craig Bakay Reporter

EMC News – Although councilors were the only ones who got to see two proposals for a new property standards/safe properties bylaw at the regular meeting of Central Frontenac Council last week in Sharbot Lake, it was clear from the get-go that neither of the proposals CAO/Clerk Shawn Trepanier presented were going to fly as-is. One proposal was a rework of the existing safe properties bylaw and another a totally new bylaw that drew the ire of Coun. Norm Guntensperger along with others around the Council table.

“To me, this feels completely inappropriate,” Guntensperger said. “It says ‘all properties’ and if you have any swamp at all, you’re going to have grass longer than 10 inches. “There will be no dead trees allowed anywhere and it’s just not reasonable. What are you going to do — mow the entire district? “This isn’t even a starting point.” “You can’t even have shrubs and bushes under this,” said Coun. John Purdon. “With the pests and vermin clause, I’d be shooting all the time,” said Coun. Frances Smith. “And I think we

heard quite clearly last time around that residents don’t want people coming into their house.” “We have to be careful what we’re asking people is reasonable,” said Guntensperger. “What’s wrong with the old bylaw?” said Coun. Heather Fox. “It’s very generalized, very broad and hard to enforce,” said Trepanier. Trepanier said the impetus to institute a property standards bylaw came from staff and “some people from Arden.” He said he also wanted to see some provision whereby residents could make a complaint but he would go and observe and

become the complainant “if somebody doesn’t want their name used.” Trepanier also suggested another round of public meeting on the subject but that was rejected by Council. “I agree that option 1 isn’t what we want but I don’t think we need to go back to the public,” said Mayor Janet Gutowski. “And I agree that the bylaw needs to be complaint driven.” “So, we’ll just re-word the second proposal?” said Trepanier. “Just tweak the existing bylaw,” said Purdon. Trepanier said he’d have a draft bylaw ready for the next Council meeting.

The solution to waste management issues is obvious – wash your garbage Craig Comment By Craig Bakay editorial@theheritageemc.ca

EMC Editorial — The latest sign that the apocalypse is upon us: Central Frontenac wants us to wash our garbage. Well, they like to call it ‘recycling’ but if it looks like a duck and it waddles like a duck . . . Anything we have no use for and want to get rid of is called ‘garbage.’ Dig into your thesaurus and see also waste, refuse, trash, rubbish, etc. but not to be confused with claptrap, twaddle, blather or balderdash. But Dep. Mayor Bill Snyder summed it all up when

he said: “I’m not about to be washing out my garbage.� Consider this from the waste management activity report presented at Council last week: “we will also be starting an education program with residents to ensure that recycling is being rinsed out prior to coming to the waste sites . . . it is important for the Township to have high quality recycling . . .� First of all, isn’t it curious when governing entities start referring to things as “education?� Wasn’t Chairman Mao big on that kind of education too? But secondly, and of more importance, “high quality recycling???� The report goes on to say “because it will give us more options in the marketplace in the future.� Hmmm. Marketplace is a curious word. It implies the Township is looking at selling something. Well, of course they’ll like to call it a “rev-

enue stream� but we’re back to ducks again. So, they want their residents to do extra work for them so that they can reap the benefits. In other words, a feudal system. We peasants work so that the ‘government’ can benefit. Then again, perhaps there is a silver lining to this. For example, we’ve been looking for a slogan to attract tourist visitors. What could send a message better than “Central Frontenac — Finest Garbage Anywhere?� Yesiree, you can sure tell the measure of a municipality by the quality of its garbage. And of course, we can’t have the people who collect and process the ‘recycling’ thinking any less of us, now can we? You really have to wonder at any society that would require its residents to wash their garbage. Sure we have waste management issues that need to

be addressed, but somewhere along the line, somebody has to start looking at what is reasonable to expect, especially in a rural community that many moved to in order to escape the issues that large urban centres face. And here’s another interesting little tidbit on the garbage front. Bylaw enforcement officer Ken Gilpin was asked by Mayor Janet Gutowski at the last Council meeting how many instances there were of garbage being thrown away on roadways since the clear bag policy came in. “There was some occasions,� Gilpin replied. “Comparable to previous years?� said Gutowski. “I didn’t come prepared to answer that,� said Gilpin. That would certainly seem to indicate there were enough instances so as to make remembering each one difficult. In other words, the answer wasn’t one or two.

Junk Food tax not the answer to obesity epidemic EMC Editorial – If the Ontario Medical Association has its way shoppers will soon be paying more for some of their guilty pleasures. At a news conference Oct. 23, the Ontario Medical Association called for aggressive new measures to combat obesity. According to the association, one in three Canadian children, 31.5 per cent, is overweight or obese and three quarters of overweight children remain so in adulthood. Moreover, effects associated with obesity cost tax payers between $2.2 and $2.5 billion annually. In an effort to fight this public epidemic the OMA is calling for increased taxes on junk food, decreased taxes on healthy goods; marketing restrictions on fatty and sugary foods; placement of graphic warning labels on high calorie foods with little to no nutritional value; health risk information on displays of high-sugar and high-fat foods; and restrictions on the availability of sugary, low-nutritional value foods in recreational facilities. The proposed measures introduced by the OMA take inspiration from anti-tobacco campaigns that have contributed to reducing smoking rates in Ontario. They point to tax increases, public information, removal of tobacco displays and advertising bans for reducing smoking rates in the province from close to 50 per cent in the 1960s to 20 per cent today. While we support the OMA’s efforts in reducing the province’s growing obesity epidemic, we take particular issue with one of its proposals: increased taxes on junk food. While we do agree that increased taxes on tobacco products helped to reduce smoking rates in the province, those taxes only affected smokers. Increased taxes on junk food would impact consumers at large, including those who maintain a healthy diet and active lifestyle but choose every once in a while to indulge. We would prefer to see decreased taxes on healthy foods and health risk information be the cornerstones of any anti-obesity campaign. Arming all consumers with the information and financial means to make healthy decisions is the way to go in our book.

Merrickville: historic, funky, and a tad anarchistic Mark Bergin

columnist editorial@theheritageemc.ca

EMC Lifestyle – The word idyllic, used with annoying frequency in travel brochures to describe distant locations, is a perfect moniker for the town of Merrickvile. There are good reasons it’s called the jewel of the Rideau. Once you’ve visited, you’ll understand why the town was awarded the title of Canada’s Prettiest Village by Communities in Bloom in 1998. Merrickville was settled in 1793 by William Merrick, who was attracted by the available water power. He built a dam along with a sawmill and carding mill. When the Rideau Canal was built in the early 1800s,

Merrick’s Mills, as it was known at the time, was quite an industrial centre. But with the coming of the railway in the later 1800s, Smiths Falls took prominence over Merrickville, which was dependent on water transportation. The locks remain today. They’re a beautiful part of the town’s landscape. Merrickville remains a popular water spot. In addition to the locks, the bridges in the town have their own appeal. The most fascinating is the swing bridge over the upper lock. Unlike Kingston’s bridge, which swings up and down, along the LaSalle Causeway over the Cataraqui River, Merrickville’s bridge swings to the side to allow boats to pass through. The bridge is located adjacent to the town’s crossroads of St. Lawrence and Main. Many of the town’s buildings from its early days are still standing. The Baldachin Inn at the corner of St. Lawrence and Main Streets was built in

1860 and once housed the largest department store between Montreal and Chicago. It would be a good idea to keep your head up while visiting Merrickville. It’s not that there’s the risk of anything falling on you. But, if you don’t look skyward, you might miss something wonderful, the shop signs. Most are handmade. Each is unique. This town is artistic to the core. There are unique shop names throughout the town— “Whistle Post Antiques,” “A Touch of Whimsy,” “Knock Knock Shop,” “Pottery by Boz,” and “Country Bumpkins,” to name a few. Make sure to stop in at Anarchy Gallery at 147 St. Lawrence Street, the main east/west artery through Merrickville. You’ll find some remarkable art by Angelina Wrona, and you might have a chance to meet the artist. Wrona creates quirky stuff, and I love quirky. Her paintings are inspired by American portraiture combined with Japa-

In all the right ways. It has somewhat of a Rocky Horror Gothic-type mood. In addition to art, there are apparel and accessories on site. Formerly a registered nurse, Wrona found herself

overwhelmed and conflicted by the touching and tragic situations in her medical career. Needless to say, some of the same conflicts, along with humour (which is in itself healing), are evident in her art. Kevin Robert Gray, a glassblower, is located at

634 St. Lawrence Street. His work combines precious metals and recycled crystal glass. Outside of Merrickville, his glass art can be found in private, corporate, government and museum collections. See Merrickville page 12

turnings, and original works of art are on display and for sale in Grotto Artworks. Hart’s Pottery and Gourds, with art by Claudette Hart, featured in a recent Enchanté column, is located at 132 Bruce Street. Scores of other shops will entice and welcome you. You shouldn’t have trouble finding a place to dine or snack.

The Village Bean at 205 St. Lawrence Street serves coffee, tea and juice. You can also grab things like muffins, fresh-baked pie, cinnamon buns, Belgian waffles, soups and chilli. For a more upscale sitdown meal, you can try the Baldachin Inn’s dining room. It features one of Canada’s few remaining Heritage-designated inte-

riors, with original stained glass, overlooking the Rideau Canal. Also on the Baldachin site is Harry McLean’s Pub with the usual pub fare. Down the street at 317 St. Lawrence is the Goose and Gridiron English Country Pub. The interior is designed to look like an 1856 pub. If it’s a cold day, you can enjoy the warmth from

If you don’t mind the slight

anachronistic sense of doing your Yuletide shopping long before Christmas, Merrickville provides an ideal location to do it now. And, at this time of year, the summer tourist crowds are gone. The choice of gifts and treasures available in the town shops is almost limitless. There are lots of oneof-a-kind and unusual items for a special person in your life. I’m planning on going back for a whole day with a shopping list for those who deserve something unique and creative. When you need a break from quaint, the historic locks are nearby, within two or three blocks of all the main shops in town. There is lots of parkland, which makes for a refreshing autumn getaway. Directions: Take Highway 15 north to Smiths Falls. In Smiths Falls, when you reach the bridge crossing the Rideau, go straight through the lights rather than turning left. Follow this road until you reach Highway 43. This takes you to Merrickville. For more information: www.realmerrickville.ca.

Farmers’ Market reports successful second season By Craig Bakay Reporter

R0011712698

EMC News — The last day of the Sharbot Lake Farmers’ Market for 2012 was Oct. 6 and it marked a successful second season, with total proceeds up to $43,000 from $31,000 in 2011, market manager (which was a paid position this year) Mary de Bassecourt told Central Frontenac Council at

its regular meeting last week in Sharbot Lake. “On Aug. 4, we had 393 visitors and a lot of them were local customers,� she said. “We’re getting a lot of familiar faces, even in a monsoon (in reference to one summer Saturday when it poured rain for the entire morning). “We’d like to compliment Council for bringing farmgate to Sharbot Lake because it would take a week

He popped the question in his 1959 Plymouth hardtop EMC Lifestyle - Ron Clark of Caledonia, On-

tario, still has fond memories of the 1959 Plymouth

hardtop he purchased off a car lot in Simcoe in the fall of 1961:  “It was black with a white top and had the 318 cubic inch V8 engine with a pushbutton automatic transmission, a major change from my earlier cars (a ’50 Chev and ’53

Plymouth).  My ’59 Plymouth had fender skirts and wheel discs and I added purple ‘mood’ lights which never seemed to help much for me.  I must say, though, that it was in this car that I proposed to my future wife Nancy.  Maybe those lights brought me

Ron Clark’s 1959 Plymouth Sport Fury convertible.  Note the quad headlights and large headlight eyebrows.

luck as we have been married now for 48 years. “Unfortunately, another major change was in store.  We got married in 1964 and had to downsize to a Volkswagen Beetle.” More than 40 years later, Ron purchased the convertible version of the two-door hardtop he owned back in the ‘60s:  “I bought my 1959 Plymouth Fury convertible at the Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona, in 2007.  It’s in great condition and has the same power train as my original ’59.  I suspect the interior has been redone, and it’s in the same gaudy copper colour as original.  I believe it is quite rare as only about 5000 were built.” Both of Ron’s 1959 Plymouths had high sweeping tailfins as they rolled off the assembly line.  The late 1950’s was the golden age of fins on cars, and the Chrysler Corporation offered them on all their cars at that time.  I was seventeen when the ’59 Plymouths began rolling off the assembly line, and I can still remember being struck by the handsome imprint of a spare tire on

the trunk lid between the two tailfins.    Two convertibles were offered in 1959, the Belvedere and the Sport Fury.  Ron’s car is a Sport Fury and cost $3125 U.S. when new.  The 318 V8 was standard equipment.  The Fury first appeared in 1956 as a two-door hardtop with lots of horsepower.  It came only in white with a very prominent gold trim along the side and quickly earned its reputation as a hot car.  The Plymouth Furys of the ‘50s and ‘60s are highly collectible today, especially the convertibles.    If the story of your car is published in this column, you will receive a complimentary autographed copy of Bill Sherk’s book “Old Car Detective Favourite Stories, 1925 to 1965.”  To share your stories and photos, email billtsherk@ sympatico.ca or write Bill Sherk, 25 John St., P.O.

New director takes on huge role Mark Bergin

columnist editorial@theheritageemc.ca

EMC Lifestyle – Ashlie Corcoran’s way of exploring life and the human condition is through theatre. The phrase “enthusiasm is contagious” could have been coined for this new Artistic Director of the Thousand Islands Playhouse. Corcoran replaces Greg Wanless, who spent 30 years with the Gananoque theatre company. Whoever was involved in hiring the new Artistic Director made the right decision in not trying to fill Greg Wanless’ shoes. They chose a new director as unique and ubiquitous as the brilliant Wanless. But different. Corcoran has her hands everywhere in the Canadian and international theatre and opera scenes. She has credits in directing numerous plays, musicals and operas. She’s worked on traditional productions like The Secret Garden, and such not-sotraditionals as The Ugly One and Tijuana Cure with Theatre Smash. I first met Ashlie last summer when Greg Wanless introduced us. Before the introduction, he told me, “I’m confident I’m passing the role to good hands.”

I was struck by her realness and her excitement. Theatre lives in her heart. “When I was a very little girl, I was interested in acting,” she said. “When I learned to read and write, I wanted to become a writer.” But in her pre-university years, Corcoran studied music, not drama. As she completed high school, she explained to her mother that she wanted to do something in the arts. “I described the roles of producing and directing.” While in high school in White Rock, British Columbia, she attended a music festival in Ottawa. Her mother was one of the chaperones. Mom drove daughter to Kingston to visit Queen’s University. “I was smitten. I met the head of the drama department.” As a scholarship recipient at the University of British Columbia, she was invited to apply to attend the Bader International Study Centre at Herstmonceux Castle in England. Each year, the program accepts five UBC undergrads. While studying at Herstmonceaux, Corcoran was involved in theatre and realized she wanted to direct rather than stage manage. After her year at the castle, she transferred to Queen’s for her remaining undergrad years. “I loved the Queen’s drama department,” she said. “It was a liberal arts education that involved academic, theoretic and practi-

When I first arrived in second year, I felt a little intimidated. It felt like everyone had been doing drama since they were two years old.” After graduating from Queen’s, Corcoran worked at Tarragon Theatre for two years. In 2003, she was awarded a Theatre Ontario Professional Theatre Training Grant and mentored at the Shaw Festival. In 2005, she joined New York City’s Lincoln Center Theater Directors Lab. That same year, she co-founded

ENCHANTĂŠ DIRECTOR From page 15

â&#x20AC;&#x153;So I went back to England,â&#x20AC;? she said. It was a productive time for her. She completed her Masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Degree in Directing at Goldsmiths. Culturally, it was an enthralling time. Through complimentary tickets and student pricing, she was able to get to the theatre a couple of times a week and saw more than a hundred plays during her time in England. Her most recent directorial works include the Canadian Opera Companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Brothers Grimm, and Western Canada Theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 25 th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. In January, she knew she had the directorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job at Thousand Islands Playhouse and, by summer, was spending time there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gregâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been very generous all summer,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to take any sharp turns with the Playhouse. There has been much growth over 30 years, and I want to build on the strengths that are there.â&#x20AC;? Corcoran is planning on promoting new play development. She said the Playhouse will host a Playwrightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Unit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll meet with a handful of local playwrights once a month,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be working on a script, which, to start, may only be an idea. I want to work on something that would work well on either of our stages. These meetings will culminate in a one day workshop of each script. In the evening, there will be a public reading. The playwright will get to hear questions from actors and an audience.â&#x20AC;? The following year will involve further workshops at a more intensive level. In the third year, one of the plays will have its world premier at the Thousand Islands Playhouse. Meanwhile, each year, a new series of play development will begin. If it sounds like a daunting task, it is. But this is a director who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t shy from challenges. Another area where Corcoran would like to see growth is in outreach and education in the Young Company tours. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just the show,â&#x20AC;?

she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the educational added value. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll offer hands-on workshops for the students who are there. This fosters an interest in drama, but also promotes literacy, selfawareness and self-confidence, skills that can be transferred to other areas of their lives.â&#x20AC;? She explained that drama provides an opportunity to learn diverse life skills. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For example, if students see No Great Mischief and work with actors on things like public speaking and movement, they are gaining self-confidence,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The point isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t to get the whole generation into acting, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to get them excited about shared human stories while learning skills that are useful in any walk of life.â&#x20AC;? She hopes to promote a student matinee cultural experience. Saltwater Moon and No Great Mischief offer superb opportunities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These plays resonate with young people, and they fit within the high school curriculum.â&#x20AC;? Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seen first-hand the powerful impact theatre has on young people. In October, she attended a performance of Ibsenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hedda Gabler at the Old Vic theatre in England. Surrounded by about 40 teenaged girls. Corcoran wondered if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be texting and talking during the show. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was the best part of the trip,â&#x20AC;? she sad. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The girls were amazing. The actressâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interpretation of Hedda Gabler was as a young woman who was controlling, beautiful, popular, but also sympathetic. The girls were connected to what they saw on stage. They recognized themselves, friends, and maybe even enemies. Though I discovered that they knew the play script, they were receiving it fresh. It was an inspiration to me, because here was this play written in the late 1800s in Norway, and these girls were gasping, crying, recognizing it.â&#x20AC;? She said that drama is a way of connecting human beings to each other and common human experiences. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s different from movies,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In theatre the beating heart is right in front of you.â&#x20AC;?

Ronny tries to plant potatoes in his ears EMC Lifestyle - Mother had a thing about clean ears and necks. We never once went out the door in the morning on the way to the Northcote School, that we weren’t subjected to a close look at both. Heaven forbid that we might get run over with a horse and buggy, end up at old Doctor Murphy’s or the Renfrew Hospital, and have someone see that we had dirty ears and necks! Every night before we went to bed, each of us had to give ourselves a sponge bath. And we had to pay special attention to our ears and necks, knowing full well they would be scrutinized the next morning. We pretty well ignored the rest of our bodies, since it wasn’t likely Mother would be examining us after we were fully dressed. My sister Audrey said she was quite sure we had the cleanest ears and necks in the entire of Renfrew County. One year the Lapointe cousins were again with us well into the fall, and Father said he doubted very much if Uncle Herby had any intention of taking them back to Montreal before the spring thaw! Ronny was a force to be reckoned with, while his younger brother Terry was as meek as a mouse. And any time Uncle Herby and Aunt Helen could send the boys out to the farm at Northcote,

constantly in trouble, if not at home, at the Northcote School. Back then it didn’t seem to matter where you came from, or why you were in the school. If you were of school age, you just went. Terry was too young, even for Primer book, so he stayed home with Mother. But Ronny, close to my age, made the three and half mile trek with the rest of us. All that was needed was an extra bag of lunch. Well, Ronny hated having his ears examined every morning. He didn’t complain about the neck, but for some reason he went through a routine that never varied when Mother was ready for her examination. He would bend his head onto his shoulder as far as it would go, screw up his face, and let out a howl much like our old Collie dog did when he thought something was attacking our hen house. Mother gave him no sympathy.

Get over to the bench and I’ll give those ears a clean out.” Well, for some reason that morning, Ronny took his punishment like a man. But I could tell the wheels were turning in his heard. There was no howling, and he didn’t even bend his head to his shoulder when the other ear was being washed. Something was up with Ronny, I could tell. He was deep in thought. The next morning, we all lined up for the usual examination. Mother thought, since Audrey was in Senior Fourth, she didn’t have to have her ears and neck examined. She was old enough and quite capable of looking after her own cleanliness. I couldn’t wait until I reached that magic age. Well, it was Ronny’s turn. He stood ramrod

straight. Again, very unusual for Ronny. When Mother bent to have a look, she got close to his ears and then hauled him over to the window so she could get a better view. “Ronny Lapointe! What have you got in your ears?” Ronny looked up at Mother and said, “Aunty, you said yesterday I could plant potatoes in my ears. Well, I thought I could maybe help it along if I put a bit of gravel in there. I sure would like to see a potato grow in my ears. Boy, wouldn’t I have something to tell the guys back in Montreal when I get home.” I had no idea if he thought seriously that he could plant a potato in his ear by putting in a bit of dirt, or if, as usual, he just wanted to cause a bit

Tag tempest tries to get ministry to listen Car Counsellor Brian turner

EMC Lifestyle - A thoughtful reader wrote in with a concern she tried to take up with the Ontario Minister of Transportation recently… “Dear Minister, Our province is unfortunately being ridiculed for its treatment of handicapped people with our Accessible Parking Permits (APP). The problem is an aggravating and frustrating one for which there may be an easy solution. I would not have known of the problem until my own mobility became impaired.    I used to live in Winnipeg and recently moved back to my home province of Ontario. Thus I was driving a vehicle

with an Ontario license plate but with my Manitoba handicap sticker.   At grocery stores, shopping malls, and other locations, I was stopped regularly and questioned by other individuals. They wanted to know where I got my handicap placard which hangs from my rear view mirror. In seeing my Ontario license plate, they assumed that the handicap sticker was also from Ontario. They then regaled me with their complaints - that their Ontario permit (a piece of laminated paper) had to be placed on the dashboard and, when the window was open, it sometimes flew out the window and they lost it or that they used rubber bands to tie it to the sun visor but then they must remember each time they park to lower the visor or else they get fined several hundred dollars. In summary, the complaints were about the design and

poor quality of the Ontario handicap permit and the desire to have one similar to those provided in other provinces and states. Could the Province of Ontario not provide disabled parking placards which can hang from rear view mirrors or else decals which could be affixed to the car license? For this, they might charge a minor fee which could yield substantial revenue for the department. It also would relieve handicapped individuals of parking grief and problems related to poorly designed permits. I urge you to give this problem serious attention and to alleviate this problem created by your department. Thank you sincerely, JS Kingston The Ontario government responded to our reader with a statement to the effect that the placement of the permit and

the info it contains are governed by legislation and that a removable permit was chosen because there are many applicants, (minor children, seniors) who neither drive nor own vehicles but still require and qualify for permits. They added that this provides for family members, friends or service providers to take the permit with them when they are providing transportation to someone with a disability. They also indicated the laminated permit has security features and is in fact quite durable. Affixing it to the sun visor or placing it on the dashboard protects the personal and identifying information on the reverse side of the permit. If the permit was hanging from the rear-view mirror, identifying information about the permit holder would be visible through the windshield and/or the side windows. Additionally, they wouldn’t sug-

gest suspending the permit from the rear-view mirror as it would obstruct the driver’s view of traffic. Our reader tried to reason with the Ministry that private personal information did not have to appear on the permit but could be simply tied to a serialized number on the government’s data-base.    They also offered the fact that many jurisdictions currently use a mirror tag without any worry about impairing visibility through the windshield.  When I contacted the MTO they passed my inquiry to Service Ontario and the response I got from them was simply a carbon copy of what they sent to our reader.  It could be reasonably argued that a shiny laminated sheet of paper laid on the dash of a vehicle can provide just as much vision impairment (if not more) than a suitablysized permit tag hanging from the rear-view mirror.  And on some vehicles

with a dark band of window tinting at the top of the windshield the permit might not be completely visible if left attached to the sun-visor.  But judging from the response received from Service Ontario, they are firmly stuck in reverse and not interested in a logical improvement to this issue.

Arden receives $10,000 shot in the arm from Frontenac County By Craig Bakay Reporter

EMC News — The Friends of Arden has received a $10,000 grant from Frontenac County to continue its efforts on community revitalization, said chair Terry Kennedy in a press release last week. “The grant is awarded through the County’s Support for Smaller Scale Sustainability Initiatives,” he said. Prior to the County grant, the group’s initiatives such as clean-up parties, park improvements, signage and trail building had been funded from private donations an all undertaken with volunteer labour. Kennedy said the funds are primarily to assist with plans for signage in the community. This represents the early stages of an overall plan to revitalize the community,

both in terms of services for its residents and to promote the growth of tourism in the Arden area,” Kennedy said. “This grant will help with the design and installation of signs that will include maps, promote local businesses and provide other related information for visitors. “The grant represents a much-needed boost for the whole community. This is just the beginning and hopefully there will be much more to come over the next two or three years.” Long-time resident and Friends of Arden inspirational leader, 92-year-old Dorothy Proctor, said: “The group is thrilled that our application was successful and that everyone’s efforts are being recognized. “We were getting worried about how long we could keep going on without any significant resources.”

It Starts Here: KFL&A Public Health jump starts conversation about alcohol in our community with release of Alcohol Report EMC News – The findings are in. Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox & Addington Public Health is set to launch its Alcohol Report Monday. Over the course of the last year or so, information has been gathered from local hospitals, police services, and provincial and national surveys to help paint a picture of the culture of alcohol use in society. It Starts Here, a report on

Alcohol in the City of Kingston is intended to jump start the conversation on alcohol use in our community and examine its impact on both individuals and the community at large. It also asks how we as a community can create conditions where alcohol use is only a part of our good times. Helping to launch this report will be Ann Dowsett Johnston, an award-winning Canadian journalist, and 2011 recipient of the Atkinson Fellowship in Public Policy. Dowsett Johnston will serve

as the launch event’s keynote speaker. Her 14 years covering education at Maclean’s magazine, specifically its annual University Rankings from 1992 to 2005, saw Dowsett Johnston develop an interest in the evolving culture of alcohol use in our society. “I began to notice that there were a lot more articles on the fact that young women, especially at university, were drinking more than they had in previous times,” Dowsett Johnston explained, adding that she noticed this first-hand while covering the Aberdeen Street party of 2005. “I was curious about it.” That curiosity led her to the Atkinson Fellowship in Public Policy, an annual competition which provides a grant for a Canadian journalist to commence a year-long research project on a topical public policy issue. Her 2011 fellowship culminated in a 12-part series on women and alcohol. “There was such a huge response to the series that I decided to do a book…I’m now writing a major international book on girls, women and alcohol which will come out

go about it the same way as the U.S. where the drinking age is 21.” We need to ask ourselves if we are happy with the status quo, she said. KFL&A’s Alcohol Report will help the community answer that question. “We have a chance to have an opinion about it as a public if we know the details… you can’t do anything without data. It’s like a good budget: You don’t know what to spend on rent if you haven’t bothered to look at your salary.” Dowsett Johnston commended Kingston and KFL&A Public Health for leading the way and taking on this initiative. “I think that Kingston is to be applauded…because this the level at which you can make a difference,” she said. Dowsett Johnston will present Our Love Affair with Alcohol: How a Fairy Tale Romance Blocks Strong Policy and How Media Can Help during an evening public forum Monday Nov. 5, 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. in Davies Hall at St. Lawrence College.

Dowsett Johnston said she believes we, as a society, have conflicted values around alcohol, which has prevented us from having this open dialog. “We tend to use alcohol to relax, to reward, to celebrate. What we don’t talk about is that we also use alcohol to numb, to forget, to be blind toward problems in life,” she said. She added that people also often tend to think that the person who has trouble with alcohol is that one individual on the street corner with a brown bag in hand. Yet, if you were to ask a room full of people to raise their hand if their life has ever been affected by alcohol or someone who has gotten into trouble with alcohol, every person in the room would raise their hand. That being said, we here in Canada don’t treat what Dowsett Johnston describes as our “most common” and “most favourite” drug the same way that other countries do. “We don’t go about it, for instance, the same way as Sweden where no one drinks and drives because there are random breath tests. We don’t

next September,” she said. Dowsett Johnston said she will focus her talks Monday on three things: “We know a lot about tanning beds and Trans Fats but we know very little about the health implications of our favourite drug. We don’t know that it’s the source of 50 diseases…We’re pretty blindfolded when it comes to our favourite drug. That’s No. 1” She said she will also look at the marketing of alcohol, and perhaps most importantly she will ask the audience whether they have an opinion on whether or not we, as a society, are going about alcohol the right way. “I’m not a prohibitionist by any stretch of the imagination, but I do believe that we haven’t had enough of an open dialog about alcohol in our society...Do we, for instance, really think the LCBO should be marketing; should it be printing those glossy, expensive brochures? Yes or no?...I just don’t believe we’ve had an open dialog about alcohol the same way we have about all sorts of things in our culture.”

There is now cyber bullying to be worried about and students can be affected not just in the schools but also outside of it, making new ways to deal with conflict even more necessary,” added Ellsworth.

never really learn from punishment. This is an opportunity for people to really understand the premise that people don’t really mean to harm one another, certainly young people don’t. We really just need to reach people at a different level. If we reach them at a heart level, where they understand the impact that they have on another person and how they made them feel, then that is what they will maybe remember another time,” said Tetlow. This approach is especially helpful considering the number of conflict

were Grade 9 students. It is quite phenomenal what they have achieved. We now have video copies of the approach that have gone to every school in the board and are available for teachers and students to view. This will allow them to see how the process works and how it should work through examples,” added Tetlow. One of the students who worked on the project was Hannah Ellsworth. “I decided to participate because I think that conflict resolution is something that needs to be addressed a lot more in schools. I personally know someone who had a falling out with another student in Grade 4 and it actually led to situational depression. If we had an approach like MEND then, I think it could have been easily avoided. We had some programs, but we didn’t have anything like this approach at the time and I think it is something that needs to be spread to more schools,” said Ellsworth. So why is something like MEND so important to communities and schools? “The approach is important because people

Youth Diversion Program in Kingston, hope to help with their new approach to conflict called MEND (Mediating Ends Negative Disagreements). The Limestone District School Board and Youth Diversion have been working together for the past six years to develop a new strategy to deal with conflict. “What we have been doing is putting a restorative approach into schools with the idea that, rather than focusing on blame and punishment we are focusing on developing and maintaining relationships and making sure that people understand the impact of their actions on one another,” explained Tetlow. Tetlow has been working with the school board to train staff on this new approach. “One of the things we’ve been asked for in doing this is some sort of video with scenarios that show this approach. We had originally put out a video on the mending circle, which shows more intense scenarios, but what we needed to do was a video on our quick conversations approach,” said Tetlow. On Tuesday, Oct. 23, MEND celebrated the completion of this video project, which was entirely produced by students. “Most of the students that did the technical work

(NC) - Pet owners who find a tick on their pets typically act swiftly with the goal of removing this parasitic arachnid as quickly as possible. However, moving too quickly can hurt the pet and even its owner. Tick removal kits can be highly effective and are often inexpensive, but owners can remove the tick themselves as well. The following are a few tick-removal tips courtesy of the ASPCA. * Be prepared to keep the tick. Some tick bites are worse than others, and if your pet falls ill after a tick bite, the tick itself might provide some valuable insight for your petâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s veterinarian. So owners about to remove a tick from their pet should prepare to keep the tick, ideally in a screwtop jar containing some rubbing alcohol. Keep the jar close to you when you begin the removal process. * Protect yourself. Ticks, even those that have already bitten your pet, can carry infective agents, which may enter your bloodstream through breaks in your skin or if you touch your eyes, nostrils or mouth. When removing a tick, be sure to wear rubber or latex gloves to protect yourself from direct contact with the tick or the bite area. * Enlist help. Pets will likely try to squirm away as you remove the tick, so enlist some help to hold the animal still or help it relax. * Prepare the area, and remove the tick. When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ready to remove the tick, treat the bite area with rubbing alcohol. Once treated, use tweezers to

grasp the tick as close to the animalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s skin as possible before pulling the tick straight upward with steady, even pressure. During removal, do not twist or jerk the tick, as doing so can leave parts of the tick embedded in the pet or cause the tick to regurgitate infective fluids. Once the tick is removed, do not squeeze or crush it, as this can cause it to expel fluids that may contain infective organisms. Immediately place the tick in the jar youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve selected for storage. * Examine the area where the tick was removed. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not always possible to remove the tick entirely. Sometimes parts of the tickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mouth will remain embedded in the animalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s skin. If the area is not red or inflamed but parts of the mouth remain, disinfect the area and leave the mouth parts in. Apply a warm compress to the area, which may expel the remaining mouth parts. * Clean the area and yourself. When the tick is removed, disinfect the bite area thoroughly. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget to clean yourself as well, washing your hands even if you wore gloves. Sterilize the tweezers with alcohol or carefully run them over a flame. * Continue monitoring the bite area for infection. Even if the tick removal process goes smoothly, continue to monitor the bite area for infection. If the area is red or inflamed or becomes red or inflamed following the removal, visit the veterinarian and bring the jar with the tick inside along.

mediately, road debris and weather conditions can put small dings and scratches into the lenses over time. These small damages can add up to covers that look dingy and dull. Cloudiness also occurs as the result of exposure to ultraviolet light. Although newer cars have lenses that are supposed to resist scratching and damage, some dulling may occur. There are many headlight cleaning kits on the market that are quite effective at restoring the lenses to their original glory. Most of these kits use a series of buffers and polishers to gently buff out scratches and rid the headlights of oxidation. Because headlight lens replacement may cost upwards of $200 per lens, the kits are much more cost effective. A car owner can also perform similar maintenance with just a few items from the hardware store and automotive shop. Employ incremental grits of sandpaper to clean the headlights without causing further damage. In addition, cutting compounds and surface cleaners can be applied with electric buffers to clean the sandpaper grit and any other debris caught in the headlights. Plastic polishers can further increase the shine of the headlights and make them look new. The key to keeping headlights looking their best is to be on top of any damage taking place. Handling minor cloudiness is much easier than a complete headlight overhaul. Routinely inspect the headlights and check for damage.

Headlights serve to improve visibility during nighttime driving conditions and inclement weather. They help drivers see and be seen by other motorists. When headlights are dull and cloudy, they can prove to be a safety hazard on the road. Fortunately, there are ways to restore headlights to their full effectiveness. Driving during the day is easier than driving at night, when vision is easily compromised. A humanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s visual field is much smaller in the dark, and it can be harder to spot road hazards, animals or people when driving at night. An improperly lit driving area can make it much more difficult to see. It also impairs othersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ability to see your vehicle coming and going. The National Institute for Traffic and Highway Safety says the No. 1 reason for severe nighttime accidents and reduced driving safety is dim or cloudy and improperly lit headlights. Also, the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety has found that nearly 4 out of 5 drivers drive with improperly lit headlights. There are a few different reasons for poor headlight illumination. In many instances, the headlight lamp has burned out and the light is no longer working. Old bulbs may dim and fail to provide the same level of illumination as they once did. Oxidized and cloudy headlight coverings are also a known contributor to diminished headlight function. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s headlight lenses are made from plastic. While it may not be visible im-

What Would a Cure Mean to you Living with diabetes the amount of insulin required. Too much insulin can result in plummeting blood sugar levels, which could lead to coma or even death. Not enough insulin can cause blood sugars to spike. When this happens ketones can develop in the blood, which can result in diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA); a potentially life-threatening situation. If ignored or not properly managed, diabetes can also lead to serious complications such as heart attack, stroke, blindness, kidney failure or limb amputations. Great athletes like Olympic gold medal swimmer Gary Hall, baseball great Ron Santo, and hockey star Bobby Clarke all have diabetes. Regular kids like Trey Wannamaker and Caleb Maggiacomo also live healthy and productive lives. Trey was only eight years old when he was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. At thirteen, he plays soccer for Kingston United and loves almost all sports. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just a normal kid, but I have a few extra rules to follow,â&#x20AC;? said Trey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Diabetes gets

Trey Wannamaker and Caleb Maggiacomo donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go to the same school, they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t related, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not the same age, but they share a strong connection Trey and Caleb live with the same life threatening disease; they have type 1 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is often misunderstood. Trey and Caleb have heard it all, kids who think they must have eaten too much sugar, adults wonder how they could have diabetes when they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t overweight and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re both so active. The truth is, there are two primary types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Often diagnosed in childhood, type 1 diabetes is a disease in which the pancreas does not produce insulin causing sugars to build up in the blood instead of being used for energy. People with type 1 diabetes control their blood sugar levels with insulin injections several times a day. Before each injection, a needle is used to prick their ďŹ nger to test blood sugar. This is necessary to regulate

in the way, because every time my blood sugar goes low, I have to stop and test my blood. When Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m playing soccer, I have to run off the ďŹ eld, test my blood, drink a juice and then wait a few minutes before I can play again.â&#x20AC;? Caleb Maggiacomo is 11 years old and was diagnosed last year. Caleb takes four insulin injections each day; two in the morning, one at dinner and another one at bedtime. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I was ďŹ rst diagnosed, I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t scared about having it,â&#x20AC;? said Caleb, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was however worried that I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go out with my friends. It is a bit scary when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m playing soccer at school. If I pass out, I could be lying there and people wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what to do.â&#x20AC;? Both boys are Ambassadors for Camp Banting, one of the Canadian Diabetes Associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s12 D-Camps for kids with type 1 diabetes. Every year for two weeks kids and teens with diabetes can have a normal camp experience under the supervision of trained medical staff.

Ambassadors for Camp Banting (Left) Caleb Maggiacomo and (Right) Trey Wannamaker â&#x20AC;&#x153;Camp is the one place where Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m always included,â&#x20AC;? Trey commented. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Diabetes isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t strange. Everyone, including the councillors, lifeguards and even some of the nurses and doctors have diabetes. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d think we would sit around and talk about diabetes and how horrible it is, but we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Camp is actually a break from all these questions. Camp is the highlight of

my summer and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m always sad to leave.â&#x20AC;? Caleb agreed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Camp is great. The nurses are really nice and so respectful. They check my doses, so I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get too much insulin and they tell me how much I need. I really like the showers too. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ďŹ nd showers in a lot of camps. And the councillors are great. They always ask me if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m feeling

sick or if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m ok. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a lot of fun too.â&#x20AC;? Camp Banting is a special place where kids can just be kids while building their conďŹ dence in a safe environment.

What Would a Cure Mean to you November is Diabetes Diabetes: take action now to protect yourself Awareness Month: What would a cure mean to you? and your family are many steps you can take to protect yourself. Lifestyle changes can dramatically reduce your risk and keep you healthy. And for those living with diabetes, healthy behaviors can help prevent complications. So, get informed and get started! What is diabetes? Diabetes is a chronic, often debilitating and sometimes fatal disease in which the body either cannot produce insulin or cannot properly use the insulin it produces. This leads to high levels of glucose in the blood, which can damage organs, blood vessels and nerves. The body needs insulin to convert glucose into an energy source. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that occurs when the pancreas no longer produces any insulin or produces very little insulin. Type 2 diabetes is a disease

that occurs when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin to meet the bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needs and/or the body is not able to respond properly to the actions of insulin (insulin resistance). Gestational diabetes is ďŹ rst diagnosed or ďŹ rst develops during pregnancy. Blood glucose levels usually return to normal following delivery, but both mother and child are at higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes later in life. Prediabetes refers to a condition where a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blood glucose levels are higher than normal, but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as type 2 diabetes. Fifty per cent of people with prediabetes go on to develop the disease. For more information about diabetes, call 1-800BANTING (226-8464) or visit www.diabetes.ca

With more than ninemillion Canadians living with diabetes or prediabetes, chances are, many Canadians know someone living with the disease. To mark Diabetes Awareness Month, the Canadian Diabetes Association is introducing the â&#x20AC;&#x153;What a Cure Means to Meâ&#x20AC;? Campaign. The goal?To give a voice to people living with diabetes in communities all over the country. Getting involved in the Campaign is easy. Visit whatacuremeans2me.comto register, and post a story from October 10 to November 30, 2012, to be eligible to win a dream vacation or other exciting prizes. Family and friends can show their support by sharing posted stories with their online communities





and by making a donation. Across the country, the Canadian Diabetes Association is leading the ďŹ ght against diabetes by helping people with diabetes live healthy lives while we work to ďŹ nd a

Most Canadians are aware of the dangers of chronic diseases, such as cancer and heart disease, but by 2020, one in three Canadians will have diabetes or prediabetes, so the time for action is now. The Canadian population is aging, and obesity rates are rising. Our lifestyles are increasingly sedentary. Almost 80 per cent of new Canadians come from populations that are at high risk for developing type 2 diabetes, including people of Hispanic, Asian, South Asian or African descent. Aboriginal people are three to ďŹ ve times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes. Currently, more than nine million Canadians are living with diabetes or prediabetes. More than 20 people are diagnosed with diabetes every hour of every day. The good news is that there

It is equally impressive to witness the tireless efforts of the volunteers and learn the impact a special place like CampBanting can have on the life of a child. As a team we look forward to continuing these efforts. As parents there is not enough thanks to offer to those who supported this event. Camp Banting provides children living with type 1

including$4,000 to send children with type 1diabetes to Camp Banting, one of a dozen camps across Canada run by the Canadian Diabetes Association. The event organizing committee is very proud of the results and the entire experience was wonderful. It was rewarding to see the generous support of the community and meet the dedicated people behind the scenes at the Canadian Diabetes Association. As a parent of a young

In January 2011, our little girl Maya Grace Emery was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Maya is certainly not the first child diagnosed with type 1 diabetes; in fact, we know there are more than three million Canadians living with diabetes, with approximately 10 per cent of those living with type 1 diabetes. When Maya was diagnosed, our lives were changed forever. Not long after Maya’s diagnosis, Team Maya’s Mission was formed by her parents, god parents, friends and family with the vision of finding a cure for type 1 diabetes. We set out to achieve this by raising funds to support diabetes research and Camp Banting. Our goal was to increase awareness of diabetes in the community, while celebrating the courage and perseverance of Maya and others with the disease. This year, with the support of our title sponsor Shoppers Drug Mart, the first annual Taking a Swinggolf tournament was held at the Brockville Golf and Country Club on July 13.Our golfers, diners, sponsors and supporting organizations such as our gold sponsor Proctor & Gamble, helped to raise awareness and funds

Diabetes Mellitus in Dogs and Cats

D

iabetes Mellitus occurs in dogs and cats from a deficiency of insulin or a lack of response to the effects of insulin. Clinical signs suggestive of diabetes in animals are an increase in thirst and urination. Weight loss, poor haircoat , weakness , cataracts, and an increased appetite may also be observed. Since other disease conditions may cause similar clinical signs, diagnostic testing is important (including bloodwork and urinalysis ) to obtain a definitive diagnosis. Diabetic animals demonstrate elevations in both blood glucose and glucose in the urine. Physical exam findings in conjunction with diagnostic testing also serve to identify other associated conditions that may be contributing to, or coexisting, with the diabetic state. This is important to direct therapeutic goals and treatment plans. Most cases of diabetes in dogs are Type I or insulin dependent. Based on physical examination and diagnostic testing, insulin type, dose, and dosing schedule are chosen. Diet and exercise are integral components in the treatment for diabetes in animals. Regular monitoring including serial blood glucose determination (glucose curves) , fructosamine blood levels ( reflects the average blood sugar over the preceding 2-3 weeks) and recheck urinalyses ( to monitor for infection as well

as glucose or ketones in the urine) are important to guide therapeutic treatment recommendations. A small proportion of cats have transient or subclinical diabetes. In these patients, the diabetic state may resolve after initiating insulin treatment or dietary changes. This warrants close monitoring of these patients to ensure no signs of hypoglycemia (too low blood sugar) are observed. Recent studies reveal that a small percentage of newly diagnosed diabetic cats on lantus or glargine insulin may revert to a non diabetic state. This non diabetic state may be transient or permanent and can be screened for based on wellness testing and clinical signs.

uting factors in the development of diabetes in animals. Fortunately, with early diagnosis, proper care and treatment, most animals can maintain a good quality of life for many years. Working closely with your primary care veterinarian will assist you in successfully managing your pets’ diabetes. Dr. Heather Sims – DVM Sims Animal Hospital 613 531 3334

Dysregulation to insulin therapy or insulin resistance may be due to concomitant disease (urinary tract infection, dental infections, Cushing’s disease (causing excessive cortisol production), pancreatitis, tumors or concurrent disease. Factors, such as, Insulin type, dosing, storage, handling, administration are also important to evaluate. Chronic complicated Diabetes arises with poor control of high blood glucose levels; a resultant ketoacidotic, dehydrated, life threatening state may ensue. It is of paramount importance to seek medical attention when a ketoacidotic crisis arises.

What Would a Cure Mean to you He Shoots, He Scores!

That is exactly what Cory Conacher is known for in the American Hockey League (AHL). Tampa Bay Lightning prospect Cory Conacher, was named the most valuable player and rookie of the year in the AHL last season. Conacher is living his dream of playing professional hockey and helped lead his team to win the Calder Cup AHL championship. An Ontario native, at 5 foot 8, 182 pounds, and born on December 14, 1989, he was always the youngest and smallest on his team. He didn’t let his size or the fact that he lives with type 1 diabetes get in the way of his hockey career. Conacher, who currently plays forward for the Syracuse Crunch the Tampa Bay Lightning’s farm team – in on his was of playing in the NHL, something that means the world to him. He already has experience in the NHL

under his belt, playing during last season’s exhibition games with the Tampa Bay Lightning. “Playing on a line with my idol, Marty St. Louis, and the amazing Steve Stamkos was crazy,” says Conacher. Conacher wears an insulin pump and continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) system to help him manage his glucose levels. “The insulin pump CGM system has helped me take some of the guesswork out. It gives me more peace of mind that my numbers are under control.” For more information on the benefits of insulin pump technology and CGM, please visit www.medtronicdiabetes.ca or call 613-295-5799 or 1-866-444-4649 * The CGM System requires the use of the MiniLink(TM) transmitter and glucose sensor (sold separately).

Fronts Cares Foundation As a hockey club, celebrating our 40th season, we understand our position in the community. Our team of players have been role models for generations of Kingston kids who dreamed of being the next Tony McKegney, Scott Arniel, Ken Linsmen, Drake Berehowsky, Brett Lindros, Andrew Raycroft, Mike Zigomanis, and Cody Alcock. As a team and an organization that is a member of the community, we also understand our position in being able to help others who need or can use our help. This hockey club has proudly helped agencies and charities across the area raise money and awareness. Last year alone, that community outreach helped raise over $50,000 for a number of local charities, including the United Way, Salvation Army, Special Olympics, the Kingston Humane Society, and numerous hockey associations and community groups.

This season, we announced the establishment of the Fronts Cares Foundation, a branch of our organization that will see our focus for community outreach connect back to the community in a more strategic effort and will help us raise funds and awareness for causes that are close to our hearts. This way, everyone involved with the Kingston Frontenacsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;from our players to our front ofďŹ ce staffâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;have the opportunity to step up and be the role models for causes in the community that can use our help. In hockey, father-ďŹ gures are important role models. Fathers are our coaches, mentors, and leaders. When Doug Gilmourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father, Don, passed away earlier this season, the whole community lost someone very special. Don Gilmour was a champion for sports in Kingston, not just hockey but also baseball. Don Gilmour was a longtime fan of the team, long before Doug

joined the organization, including the one game he served as head coach in 1987-88 season. The Kingston Frontenacs have dedicated their season in honour of Don Gilmour, and using every opportunity to raise awareness and funds to help increase education and programs for juvenile diabetes. In dedicated this season to honouring Don Gilmour, we are working closely with the Canadian Diabetes Association group in Kingston, to create something we believe resonates with what our organization is trying to achieve; raising awareness for charitable causes in the Greater Kingston Area and helping to raise their proďŹ le through this partnership. We are committing to using our place as community role models, as a team and organization, to raise funds for the Canadian Diabetes Association, speciďŹ cally around type-1 diabetes.

One-act play festival comes to the Domino Theatre By Mandy Marciniak EMC Correspondent

EMC Entertainment Generally, plays are about three hours long with several acts, but what if a play could only be 25-60 minutes in length and only one act? This is the challenge that playwrights, actors, and directors face with the One-Act Play Festival, a festival put on by the Eastern Ontario Drama League each year. This year, Kingston’s own Domino Theatre plays host to the festival. “The festival is held in a different theatre every year across Eastern Ontario, and theatres volunteer to host it,” explained Lily Baird, president of the Eastern Ontario Drama League (EODL). “Theatre groups volunteer to participate and it is first come first serve. We only have room for nine plays.” Lily’s husband, Robert Baird, is also an active member of the EODL and explained the appeal of the festival. “The festival is designed to give smaller theatre groups, that only have a limited number of resources to draw on, an opportunity to participate in a festival where they get judged and told how they can improve.

It gives them a chance to learn and maybe further along they will be able to compete against the larger and more well-established theatre groups.” The festival takes place Nov. 9-11. Three plays will take the stage each day. “By doing the three play blocks, you can get quite the variety in plays over the course of the night or afternoon. You could get a drama, a comedy and a mystery all in one evening,” added Robert. The time period between the plays can also be quite entertaining for guests. Play groups are only allowed 10 minutes to bring in their setup and five minutes to get everything off the stage when it is over. “There is an intermission and some of the audience likes to go out and have a drink and chat, but there are quite a few that just stay in the auditorium and watch the scurrying. It is entertainment itself,” said Robert. This year, included in the festival is Remembrance, a play by Kingston playwright Ned Dickens and directed by Gord Love. The play is centred around Shakespeare’s Sonnet 30, which is all about remembering. The

Actors in action during Remembrance, a play that is part of the One-act Play Festival at the Domino Theatre November 9-11th. play, which has already received some high praise, has been part of the Library Chronicles for the past three weeks and will now be re-staged for this festival. “The play, I’ve been told, is really quite moving and comforting. Ned did a great job and has actually created a play with

15 sonnets within it. One of them is Shakespeare’s and the rest are his own. It is really quite beautiful,” said Love. Following the three blocks of plays, guests are invited to an awards brunch on Sunday, Nove. 11. “We present trophies of various sizes and de-

scriptions that have been donated by theatre groups or people that are very involved in theatre. Awards are given for various honours including best production, director, actor and actress, “explained Robert. There is also a people’s choice award that spectators can vote on after they see each play.

Tickets for the festival are $20 for each group of three plays, or $55 for the entire festival. Tickets include admittance to an after-show Green Room with light buffet. Tickets for Sunday’s awards brunch are $30. Visit www.dominotheatre.com or call 613 530 2050 for more info.

No clouded judgment, this film is a masterpiece MOVIE: Cloud Atlas STARRING: Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent, Doona Bae, Jim Sturgess, Hugo Weaving, Ben Whishaw, James D’arcy, Susan Sarandon, and Hugh Grant DIRECTORS: Tom Tykwer, Lana Wachowski Pat Trew and Andy Wachowski RATING: 14A

My Take BY MARK HASKINS

EMC Entertainment Cloud Atlas is one of the most ambitious films I’ve seen. The depth and breadth of its story staggers the mind. Its scope brushes against the sublime. Its vision will haunt you long after the credits have faded. There’s no way to summarize this film in a few short BY JOHN TUCKER paragraphs. I can tell you it takes place over the course of a number of lifetimes and across centuries. It’s about the good and evil inside all of

Canada Jack

us. It’s about the choices we make, and how those choices can have far reaching consequences. It questions the dogma that the strong are the rightful rulers of the weak. If the story has a beginning it’s in 1849 where a young lawyer, Adam Ewing (Jim Sturgess), takes a sea voyage with Dr. Henrey Goose (Tom Hanks). We then come to the 1930s where a young composer, Robert Frobisher (Ben Whishaw), writes to his lover, Rufus Sixsmith (James D’Arcy), of his struggles to complete his masterpiece while under the thumb of the once great Vyvyan Ayrs (Jim Broadbent). It then moves to the seventies where reporter Luisa Rey (Halle Berry) inves-

tigates a mystery surrounding a nuclear power plant run by Lloyd Hooks (Hugh Grant). In our own time publisher Timothy Cavendish (Jim Broadbent) becomes imprisoned in a nursing home by his brother Denholme Cavendish (Hugh Grant). In the distant future we watch a clone, Sonmi 451 (Doona Bae), with the help of Hae-Joo Chang  (Jim Sturgess) learn the truth of existence, and begin a revolution. And in the very distant future as the last vestiges of humanity struggle to survive we witness Zachry (Tom Hanks) and Meronym (Halle Berry) find hope. Each soul is connected. Each one shapes the others. A single act of kindness will

eventually become a rebellion, and a killer will become a hero. Cloud Atlas is a bold story told on the grandest of scales. It isn’t the story of one character or of one lifetime, but of a number of characters through a number of lifetimes all connected in a myriad of ways. It moves fluidly back and forth across time, and from storyline to storyline. It’s not an easy film to follow at first, but by the end you begin to see all the subtle ways everything fits together, and at the end you’re left utterly and completely awe struck. This is such a unique experience to see a character not just evolve over the normal course of a story, but to see that character’s soul evolve over the course of multiple lifetimes. It’s an astounding feat, and each and every actor is magnificent. Hanks, Berry, Broadbent, Bae, Sturgess, Weaving, Whishaw, D’Arcy, Sarandon, and Grant are all spectacular. Visually stunning, dramatically breathtaking, Cloud Atlas is a singularly unique experience. It is without question a masterpiece. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

Kingston grandmothers lend a helping hand to counterparts in Africa By Kristen Coughlar

kcoughlar@perfprint.ca

EMC Events – Looking to get a jump start on your Christmas shopping? If so, you’re sure to find a variety of fabulous gifts for family, friends and loved ones this Saturday at the Hellenic Banquet Hall, 121 Johnson St. The Kingston Grandmother Connection is hosting its annual Market for Africa at the hall that day from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. What started off as a group of three women six years ago, Kingston Grandmother Connection has blossomed to the point where the organization now boasts a membership of over 200 people. Each year, its members host fundraising events in support of the Stephen Lewis Foundation and Help Lesotho, organizations which help mitigate the effects of HIV/AIDS by providing support for grandmothers who now act as caregivers for their orphaned grandchildren. “This is probably the biggest fundraiser that we have,” said event chair Nona Mariotti. Now in its fifth year, the Market for Africa is an opportunity for community members to learn more about the Kingston Grandmother Connection, Stephen Lewis Foundation and Help Lesotho, and do a little bit of shopping in support of a good

cause. Thousands of baked goods, preserves, clothing, art, jewelry, and festive treasures will all be on display and for sale during the six-hour event. All items at the Market for Africa are handmade or donated by members and supporters of the Kingston Grandmother Connection. “We have a wonderful table called Global Gifts. We started that last year, and people just ate it up. We all have things around our home that we’ve bought while we’ve been away travelling, but we’re tired of it and its time to go to a new décor,” Mariotti said, noting that shoppers will find treasures from all over the world at that table. Another new addition last year was a signature spa soap made by one of the members of the Kingston Grandmother Connection. “This is a formula just for us... It’s really nice in that it’s made with cucumber and all natural products,” Mariotti said. The popularity of the market has grown each year, to the point where last year people were lined up outside hoping to get first look at the items for sale. “That was really an eye-opener for us,” Mariotti said. In its six years in operation, the Kingston Grandmother Connection has raised close to $500,000

Photo/Kristen Coughlar Nona Mariotti, chair of the Kingston Grandmother Connection Market for Africa, shows off some of the items that will be for sale during this Saturday’s event at the Hellenic Banquet Hall, 121 Johnson St. in support of the Stephen Lewis Foundation and Help Lesotho, and each year, the Market for Africa contributes between $21,000 and $25,000 towards the efforts to support African grandmothers who, as a result

of their children succumbing to HIV/AIDS, are now caring for their orphaned grandchildren. “Millions have died. We have a whole generation in South Africa missing and these grannies are just such brave people,”

Mariotti said. “Some of them are well into their 70s and 80s and raising kids.” Mariotti said she would love to see this year’s Market for Africa best each of the five that has come before it. In order for that

to happen, they need the community’s help, so don’t miss your chance to help support African grandmothers and to pick up what Mariotti described as some “very lovely Christmas presents.”

Memories of Cuban Missile Crisis never fade Jeff Maguire

EMC Correspondent

EMC Lifestyle - â&#x20AC;&#x153;Okay children, under your desks now â&#x20AC;&#x201C; quickly, quickly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pull yourself up into a ball, interlock your fingers and put them behind your neck. Make yourself as small as you can! Just as you saw in the film.â&#x20AC;? The voice was that of my Grade 5 teacher at Stittsville Union Public School. Her name eludes me now, 50 years later. But some of the memories from October 1962 will never fade. This one is the most vivid! We were taking part in a drill. One that every child in our school participated in during that very tense time in world history. Earlier we had watched a film that was available to teach people how to protect themselves. We were preparing for what might happen should our enemy of the time, the Soviet Union, launch a nuclear attack on North America. With Stittsville located so close to Ottawa, the seat of government, we were well within the fallout zone if nuclear missiles struck the city. It was a deadly serious business. Believe me there was no smirking, laughing or tardiness at our school. When the teacher said â&#x20AC;&#x153;assume the positionâ&#x20AC;? thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exactly what we did. I was scared stiff, we all were. By Grade 5 we were old enough to follow the news and we knew the situation was very serious. The worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greatest powers of the day, the United States of

America and the Soviet Union, were teetering on the brink of nuclear war and the threat of annihilation hung over all of us like a pall. American President John Fitzgerald Kennedy (JFK) and Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev stood toe-to-toe in a potentially deadly confrontation over the presence of Russian nuclear missiles on the Caribbean island of Cuba. The Soviets had placed them there in secrecy. U.S. spy planes had discovered and photographed them and now JFK and the U.S. was demanding the launchers be dismantled and the nuclear warheads shipped back to Russia immediately. In the language of the time â&#x20AC;&#x153;the threat was real and verifiable.â&#x20AC;? As the world held its breath it came down to whether Kennedy or Khrushchev would blink first. The 13-day Cuban Missile Crisis began on Oct. 16, 1962 when JFK first learned missiles were being installed on Cuba, the nation governed by Fidel Castro which is allied with Russia. I say â&#x20AC;&#x153;isâ&#x20AC;? because 50 years on very little has changed. Castro is elderly and ill but remains a dominant figure even though his brother Raul is now president. Cuba and Russia still cooperate closely. Cuba lies 90 miles off the coast of Florida which made it an ideal launch pad for Soviet weapons of mass destruction aimed at American and, yes, Canadian targets. The so-called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Cold Warâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; reached its climax during those

tense fall days half a century ago. The hands of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;nuclear clockâ&#x20AC;? came as close to midnight as the world has ever seen. There have been other threats since, but none of them scared me as much as the Cuban crisis did when I was a youngster. Invasion threat The Americans led a naval and air force blockade and Kennedy threatened to invade Cuba if the missile launchers werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t dismantled and the warheads shipped back to Russia. In the end it was the Soviet premier who blinked, perhaps spurred by concerns that Castro could not be trusted with nuclear weapons. We now know that an American invasion of Cuba could also have led to catastrophe. Secretly the Russians had installed over 42,000 troops on the island to help repel any invasion. Some 18 months earlier an American sanctioned attack had employed Cuban exiles trained by the Central Intelligence Agency. The Bay of Pigs Invasion ended in total failure and embarrassment for the young U.S. president. In October 1962 Kennedy refused to back down. That made him a hero in my eyes and in the opinion of most people living in North America at the time. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one reason we were so shocked and saddened when just over a year later Kennedy was felled by assassinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bullets while riding in a motorcade in Dallas, Texas on Nov. 22, 1963, 49 years ago this month. I say â&#x20AC;&#x153;assassinsâ&#x20AC;? because I

am a skeptic about the so-called â&#x20AC;&#x153;magic bullet theoryâ&#x20AC;? and the lone gunman scenario. But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another column! Was Castro involved in Kennedyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s murder? That remains among the conspiracy theories which abound to this day, underlining how much JFK meant to the world during his ill-fated term in office. Now, 50 years later, I recall clearly what we were doing and how worried all of us were during the Cuban Missile Crisis. As children our fear was obviously heightened by the fact our parents were so terrified. It was a very troubling time and the information released publicly since the crisis shows we had good reason to be fearful. Commemoration events marking the 50th anniversary were held across the U.S. during October. In Washington D.C. an exhibition opened at the National Archives titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Too the Brink: JFK and the Cuban Missile Crisis.â&#x20AC;? The exhibits include secretly recorded tapes of Kennedy and his advisors as they worked to avert nuclear Armageddon. As school children our involvement with the Cold War didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t end with the USSRâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s de-

bomb shelter. Not that we ever had one of course. Most families couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford the â&#x20AC;&#x153;luxury.â&#x20AC;? If you want to visit an installation from that period the best bet in our region is the so-called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Diefenbunkerâ&#x20AC;? at Carp. The huge underground installation was where Canadian government was supposed to continue in the event of a nuclear attack. The Prime Minister of the day was John Diefenbaker, hence the nickname. Now dubbed â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cold War Museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; the four-storey deep bunker, buried in a hillside on the edge of Carp, provides an opportunity for people who werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t alive or who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember to learn about the Cold War and its impact on Canadians and our government in the 1960s. A great history lesson! Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what commemorations like the Cuban Missile Crisis 50th anniversary are all about actually. Despite several opportunities I have yet to visit the Diefenbunker. To be honest I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel the need. I experienced the Cold War first-hand!

cision to remove missiles from Cuba. The nuclear clock had only been turned back a few minutes. Atomic destruction was still a real possibility that we lived with every day. We still live with it of course but you have to remember that in 1962 nuclear weapons were still relatively new and therefore the concerns about their possible use were front and centre. Today, living in the post 911 environment, terrorism is the reality we face each day. During the Cold War one of the possible safety nets was bomb shelters. Just as the British did during â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Blitzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; people around the world were building home bomb shelters in the 1960s. In the spring of 1963 our school trip took a very different twist. Instead of visiting a museum and having a picnic in a park (favourite year-end activities for school classes in the 1960s), we went to the Civil Defence installation at Arnprior. There we toured a bomb shelter. A very unique school trip and one I also remember vividly. After the Cuban crisis there was something very comforting about the thought of a home

Create professional looking desserts can do with a simple pastry bag, icing and a decorative tip. Instead of slathering frosting on cupcakes, use the tip to pipe on individual stars or swirls so the cupcakes look dressed up. The same concept can be applied when baking a cake in a molded pan-and-pipe on the frosting to create the design. You can also use it to add a dab of homemade whipped cream to a serving plate aside a slice of pie. Get creative with your pastry tip and explore different possi-

bilities. * Make garnish sauces. Professional chefs understand that many people eat with their eyes. That means guests may be more inclined to "ooh and ahh" over desserts if they are presented in a special way. Take a cue from restaurants and garnish the plate prior to adding the dessert. Create simple sauces from cooked-down strawberries or raspberries with sugar and water. Or look to premade syrups. Grab that bottle of chocolate sauce

Dessert makes the perfect finishing touch to a special event. Hosts and hostesses frequently fret over which foods to serve at their parties, and that includes dessert. But hosts won't need a professional pastry chef to serve some imaginative and impressive desserts. In fact, it's easy for even novice foodies to make their own delicious desserts. * Invest in a star decorator's tip and pastry bag. There's no limit to what you

and create a design on a dish and then place the dessert on top. * Use leaves or flowers. In addition to sauces on the plate, you may want to add a few mint leaves or an edible flower to cleanse the palate. This adds a touch of class to the presentation and makes guests feel special. * Create individual servings. A dessert served in an individual ramekin or tin can be a nice presentation in itself. Plus, guests may feel like you individually created each dessert with them in mind. Individual servings look and serve well, rather than having a larger dessert demolished by slices or scoops. * Go for the wow factor. Certain desserts lend themselves to dramatic display.

Creme brule or flambe desserts will catch attention. Simply lighting a meringuetopped pudding on fire for a few minutes also can create a memorable moment. Use a good-quality liqueur for fireenhanced desserts, so the alcohol can burn off quickly and evenly. * Embrace the use of fondant or gum paste. These pastry art materials are frequently used by professional pastry chefs. They're essentially a moldable dough made out of sugar. Fondant can be rolled to cover cakes, cut to turn into intricate shapes or hand-molded to be turned into figurines or other edible pieces. Just about any dessert can be enhanced with a fondant trinket. Make a flower or a heart out of fon-

dant and lay it aside a slice of cake. Give in to a child's sense of whimsy by molding edible cartoon characters for them to enjoy at a birthday party. Fondant-covered petit fours may be delicious and eye-catching. * Use cookie cutters to create different shapes. Instead of a standard layer cake, use cookie cutters to cut out cake pieces and then layer them with frosting in between. Think about baking a pie and cutting out a piece of the pre-baked top crust with a cookie cutter that gives a clue to the filling inside (i.e., an apple cutout for an apple pie). Place on top of the crust before baking. Creating special desserts doesn't require much effort or any specialized skills.

Safety first for winter sportsmen

Clothing Inadequate clothing is one of the easiest ways a winter sportsmen can fall victim to illness or injury . But the right clothing can go a long way toward ensuring this winter sports season is fun and illness- and injury-free. * Wear protective head gear. Protective headgear can help sportsmen avoid colds and head injuries. When venturing outdoors in the winter, always wear a protective wool ski cap. Most body heat is lost through the head, but wool caps help your body retain warmth on cold days and nights. In addition, sportsmen should always wear protective headgear when skiing, sledding, snowboarding or playing ice hockey. Even the most experienced sportsmen can suffer a head injury when playing a winter sport, but the appropriate headgear can prevent head injuries to veteran and novice athletes alike. * Dress in layers. Dressing in layers is another way to stay warm and prevent illness in the winter months. Kids are especially susceptible to cold weather, so parents should dress them in one more layer than they dress themselves. When

wearing scarves, sportsmen should tuck their scarves in so they don't get tangled with sporting equipment. * Remove drawstrings from kids' clothing. Drawstrings on winter hats, overcoats and pants can prove harmful to children. These drawstrings can easily get tangled and lead to strangulation. Parents should remove all drawstrings from kids' winter clothing before kids participate in winter sports. Ice skating & hockey Winter is a great time to go ice skating or play some hockey. However, ice sports like skating and hockey can be especially dangerous, and it's wise for adults and children to be as cautious as possible when getting in some ice time. * Beware of thin ice. Ice that forms on moving waters, including rivers and creeks, is never safe enough to skate on. Such waters should always be avoided no matter how thick the ice may appear. When going ice skating or playing hockey outdoors, only do so on waters that are supervised and have been tested and approved for skating. * Skate with the crowd and never skate alone. Skating alone might give you all the room in the world to perform a figure eight, but skating alone leaves you with no backup should the ice break and you fall in or if you injure yourself in a fall. When skating, never skate against the crowd. Skiing and snowboarding Skiing and snowboarding are immensely popular in the winter, but that popularity should not overshadow how dangerous these activities can be. * Get instruction. Ski resorts typically require guests with no previous skiing or snowboarding experience to get lessons before they can take to the slopes. These lessons are a must for novice skiers and snowboarders

and even those athletes with no recent experience on the slopes. * Be especially cautious when entering or exiting the ski lift. Ski lifts pose a significant injury risk, so skiers and snowboarders should always be attentive when entering or exiting the lift. * Don't allow young children to snowboard. Many of today's youngsters prefer snowboarding to skiing. However, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children seven years of age and younger should not snowboard. * Don't be in a hurry. Skiing or snowboarding too fast increases the chance you will lose control and cause injury to yourself or others. Go at a slower, more relaxed pace and take in all of the beautiful scenery along the way. Sledding Sledding is a great way to have some fun in the winter snow. But even though sledding is often seen as a carefree activity, it can be risky as well. * Never sled near traffic. Sledding near traffic is a definite no-no, as it risks the lives of sledders and motorists alike. Always make sure you sled in an insulated area far away from roadways. * Sled feet-first or sitting up. Sledding feet-first or sitting up greatly reduces a sledder's risk of suffering a head or neck injury. Never sled while lying down head first. * Never sled on ice. Sledding on ice can cause injuries and make it difficult to control a sled. When sledding, only do so on packed snow. * Do not allow a sled to be pulled by a vehicle. Being pulled by a vehicle while on a sled might seem like fun, but it's nearly impossible for oncoming traffic to see a sledder behind a vehicle, and it's very easy for the sled to fishtail into oncoming traffic.

Winter is a special time of year for sportsmen. The great outdoors beckons men and women in the wintertime, when skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, and sledding are just a few of the many cold weather activities to entice athletes out of their homes. Though winter sports can help fend off cabin fever, those who don't exercise certain safety precautions might find themselves dealing with another kind of fever. Cold weather can leave men, women and children susceptible to illness or injury if they aren't careful. The following are a few safety tips for winter sportsmen who want to make the most of the coming winter sports season.

BUSINESS

How to find investors for your business Starting a business and being your own boss is a dream for many working men and women. Whether you have a great idea for a startup business or want to branch out on your own in your current line of work, starting a business from scratch can be a risky, yet rewarding, undertaking. One of the biggest concerns for many startup businesses is finding the money to get the business off the ground. Finding investors for a business idea often involves patience, resolve and a strong belief in your idea. Few startups can survive without some investment capital from outside sources, and the following are a few tips to help today’s entrepreneurs find financial backing for their ideas. * Know what you need. Once you’ve explained your idea, a potential investor, whether it’s a venture capitalist, a trusted friend or even a family member, will want to know exactly how much money you need. The more money you need, the more people you’re likely to have to approach. If the amount of capital you need is relatively small, then you can seek the help of friends and family members. This might prove especially rewarding should your business eventually succeed, as you will have raised investment capital from the people you trust and rewarded that trust with a healthy re-

turn on their investments. Keeping things in the family definitely has its benefits, but it can also cause problems, especially if the amount of capital you need to raise is substantial. In such instances, seeking the help of a venture capitalist might be your best bet. Venture capitalists not only invest in ideas for a living, but also if you work with a venture capitalist, your relationships with family and friends won’t grow strained if your idea or plan falters and the returns on investment are less than expected. * Invest in yourself, but don’t overdo it. Letting potential investors know you’ve invested your own money in the project can help, but you don’t want to overdo it. Potential investors might hesitate to invest with someone who sank their entire savings into an idea. Such hesitation occurs because investors don’t want decisions affecting the company to be made by someone who is concerned about losing their entire nest egg. Such decisions are not always rational, and they can affect how you approach the business. So while it’s good to invest in yourself and your idea, don’t overdo it to the point where potential investors might see your business as a red flag instead of a worthwhile investment. * Develop a detailed

DO YOU L VE YOUR CAR? CONVENIENT SECURE AFFORDABLE

Limited Heated Car Storage Still Available

plan. Potential investors will want to see a detailed business plan that includes how the business will be run and how their money, should they ultimately choose to invest, will be used. Include a forecast of expenses, which includes materials needed as well as what you expect to pay in rent for office and manufacturing space. This plan should also include an earnings projection, which can point to when an investor can reasonably expect to start seeing some return on his or her investment. If you have no experience in developing a business plan, then you might want to consult a business advisor. This will cost you money, but it might make the difference between finding solid investors or sitting on your idea. * Be enthusiastic about the future. Enthusiasm is important when seeking investors. Potential investors already have money, and they won’t want to invest in an idea with a goal of breaking even. Explain to potential investors that you have a long-term vision for your business, one that isn’t just for survival but, ideally, expansion. You don’t want to go overboard here, as you don’t want to make it appear as though you’re putting the cart before the horse. But you don’t want to project a lack of confidence in your ideas or a lack of vision for how you want your business to grow, either. Enthusiasm about the future can pique a potential in-

vestor’s interest, whereas an investment opportunity that doesn’t figure to yield much of a return will turn

at convincing potential investors to invest as they did at developing their initial ideas.
