THE ROTARY CLUB OF CATARAQUI-KINGSTON WITH THE ROTARY CLUBS OF PERTH, HAWKESBURY AND RENFREW INVITE YOU TO THE

15th ANNUAL

WHAT WOULD IT TAKE TO CHANGE THE WORLD? R otary’s 1.2 million members believe it starts with a commitment to Service Above Self.

& Melinda Gates Foundation, has resulted in polio becoming a distant memory for many.

Expanding from the simple idea of Paul Harris in Chicago in 1905 that gathering acquaintances from varied backgrounds and perspectives could be a way to develop new friendships, Rotary has evolved into a global organization that seeks to bring peace to our world by building our local and our international communities. In that spirit, Rotary clubs have taken on the mammoth task of eradicating polio worldwide. This effort, in partnership with government agencies, non-government agencies, United Nations and most recently The Bill

Locally our Kingston community is strengthened with the financial support of not-for-profit organizations that align with the Rotary International 6 Areas of Focus: •Peace and conflict prevention/resolution, •Disease prevention and treatment, •Water and sanitation, •Maternal and child health, •Basic education and literacy and •Economic and community development. Thanks to supporters like the Rotary Club of Cataraqui-Kingston, Community Harvest is entering its fifth year of successful programming. It has been operating a farmers’

market in front of the Wally Elmer Neighbourhood Centre, holding an organic gardening/seasonal cooking workshop series “From Earth to Table” and establishing community gardens in North Kingston since 2009. We started small with a teaching garden by Wally Elmer, and then developed a 2,500 square foot garden behind Frontenac Community Mental Health and Addiction Services (FCMHAS) on Lyons Street in 2011, to finally assume the responsibility for the Dutch Heritage Villa Garden on Elliott Street this past year. Organic produce from the gardens is being shared with volunteers, FCMHAS Enterprises program, Pathways to

Education, Salvation Army’s Food Pantry and drop-in centre “The Gathering Place” and sold through the Good Food Box and at the Community Harvest We couldn’t achieve all that we do without the generous backing of many agencies and private enthusiasts. The Rotary Club of CataraquiKingston has been one of our most faithful supporters from day one. Rotary volunteers helped us build our first garden at the Wally and in partnership with St. Lawrence College students created storage tanks for rainwater, assisted us to develop the Lyons Street garden, arranged for Home Depot to provide tools and soil for the Lyons Street and

Wally Elmer gardens, funded various aspects of market operations and assisted at special events. Their enthusiasm is inspiring!

Extended hours for household hazardous waste site in the works By Craig Bakay Reporter

EMC News – Increased demand for the services South Frontenac’s Household Hazardous Waste Depot will likely lead to extended hours at the Keeley Road facility, Council heard at its regular Committee of the Whole meeting in Sydenham last week. In a report to Council,

submitted after the site’s first full year of operation, Public Works Manager Mark Segsworth said that e-waste has been added to the list of items that can be disposed at the site “offering the residents of South Frontenac a one-stop diversion drop-off location for both hazardous and electronic waste.” He said the demand for these services continues to increase.

“Also, it is anticipated that the demand for our bale wrap diversion will be greatest in the winter months,” he said. “In order to maintain a continuity of service, our current contractor, Brendar Environmental, was approached for a proposal (and) they are prepared to provide this service at their current rate. “As we are still learning, it is suggested that

we offer this service (bale wrap) on a reduced frequency (with) proposed hours of operation the second and fourth Thursday of each month from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.” He said it was also their intention to issue a tender in early 2013 for the operation of the facility from April 1, 2013 go March 31, 2015. The cost of each “event” at the site is $565 plus tax.

Segsworth said the Operating Budget in 2013 has been increased to reflect the additional cost to provide this service. Council seemed generally in favour of the proposal with only Coun. Ron Vandewal expressing some minor concerns. “I know that people want it open,” Vandewal said. “But at $600 a day, wouldn’t one Thursday a month be sufficient?”

Wellness Fair “a quiet, intimate affair with a holistic approach” By Craig Bakay Reporter

EMC News – For some, the Sharbot Lake Natural Wellness & Better Living Weekend, last Saturday and Sunday at St. James Major was “something fun to do on a Sunday.” That’s was Fallbrook’s Rebecca Bowie’s take, but as a seasoned veteran of such events, she had high praise for the Sharbot Lake gathering. “I’ve been to a lot of other wellness events but there’s usually so many people you don’t get a chance to talk to the presenters,” she said. “This is a quiet, intimate affair with a very holistic approach including food, therapy, and many amazing practitioners.” “It has FRONTS_EMC_SEASONTIX.pdf an authenticity to it,” said her companion from Perth,

1

Julie McIntyre. “It feels more like an experience than a show.” Funded in part by the Frontenac Community Futures Development Corporation, the only admission fee was a suggested donation for the food bank. Products and services offered included everything from Shiatsu to snack choices for dietary issues, herbs to healing stones, reiki to reflexology. “Our goal is to support and develop these community products and services,” said organizer Tracie Goodberry. One such local product and service provider was Carolyn Bond, who offers Nikken magnetic products which she discovered 15 years ago when aching hands threatened her 21year career as a piano teacher. “I was on PM a plane trip and 11/5/2012 12:18:12 the guy next to me told me

about his wife, who had fibromyalgia,” Bond said. “He said that after nine nights of sleeping on a Nikken system, she was able to go off her meds. “I decided to get a sleep system and after three nights, my hands were normal. “I wanted to tell everybody.” Like most alternative treatments, magnet therapy isn’t recognized by any mainstream medical associtations. However, a few years ago, neurologist Michael Weintraub made some headlines with a limited study that produced positive results for some of his patients with diabetes who suffered from poor circulation in their feet (a relatively common aspect of diabetes). “We’re not allowed to make medical claims but nobody re-

ally knows how magnetism affects the body,” Bond said. “But from my own experience, you sleep more deeply and feel less discomfort. “People feeling better is a big turn-on for me and I’m a lifer with this — because of my own experience and what I’ve seen.” Bond offers a variety of magnetic products from sleep systems, to joint supports to shoe inserts to water filters. She can be reached at 613-279-2502.

Nikken independent home consultant Carolyn Bond shows off magnetic insoles, which one study suggests have provided relief for some diabetes patients with foot problems.

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A draft Capital Budget CAO/Clerk Wayne Orr presented to South Frontenac Council at its regular Committee of the Whole meeting last week in Sydenham features an increase of $1,105,605 over 2012, bringing the total ask to $8,864,859 which includes a $360,000 hike in the tax levy (to $3,626,000). Orr said the Capital Budget includes all items greater than $5,000. Items under $5,000 are included in the Operating Budget. The combined budgets are expected to come before Council Nov. 10. Another aspect of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget is reduced reserves, to $12.6 million, which represents a drop of $1,3 million from 2012, which didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sit well with

Coun. Ron Vandewal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m concerned about this $1.3 million â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;drawdownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; of reserves,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to make Council look good at the cost of reserves.â&#x20AC;? The biggest chunk of the budget is public works, a total of $6,550,000, with includes $4,550,000 for roads. Vandewal was also concerned about that figure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Roads are important, but I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve let a lot of things slip because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always looked at roads more,â&#x20AC;? said Vandewal. He cited fire station repairs as an example. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Station 6 has been on the list ever since Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been on Council,â&#x20AC;? he said. In fact, buildings drew the majority of discussion, including $119,000 for the addition onto Frontenac Community Arena, which

South Frontenac still owes as its portion of $199,000 left yet to pay. (Central Frontenac is on the hook for the remainder.) â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sympathetic to drawing down the arena but do we have to pay it down all at once?â&#x20AC;? said Coun. John McDougall. Orr also questioned the number of buildings the Township owns, adding that there is a budget line to â&#x20AC;&#x153;re-keyâ&#x20AC;? because over the years, locks have been changed and sometimes office staff have had to chase down members of the public to get into Township facilities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And buildings are like cars,â&#x20AC;? said Coun. Del Stowe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How much do you put into it before itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not worth it any more?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do we really need nine firehalls?â&#x20AC;? said Orr. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And Fermoy Hall sits empty 99 per cent of the time.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The placebo effect is real and I love itâ&#x20AC;? EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Catherine Smith really doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mind if people think what she does is merely initiate a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;placebo effect.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;The placebo effect is real and I love it,â&#x20AC;? she said Sunday at the Sharbot Lake Natural Wellness & Better Living Weekend at St. James Major. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The placebo effect is somebodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s desire to heal.â&#x20AC;? But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clear after a few minutes with the Maberly Shiatsu therapist that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sincere in her beliefs and regardless of the explanation of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really going on, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no arguing with results. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It works,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People get better.â&#x20AC;? Shiatsu is Japanese for finger pressure and is an alternative medicine technique developed in the 1940s by Tokujiro Namikoshi that uses finger and palm pressure, stretches and other massage techniques on specific areas of the body depending on the complaint. This is done in conjunction with bodily â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;meridiansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; or a knowledge of how energies moving throughout the body interact with one another. Smith discovered

the techniques after her chronic gastritis seemed to baffle more conventional western medicine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had health problems the health system didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t begin to address,â&#x20AC;? she said. That was in 1982 and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been doing it ever since, with a few stops in between to explore other alternative therapies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With this self treatment, I just started to feel better,â&#x20AC;? she said. For Smith, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an almost Zen-like aspect to the discipline as she â&#x20AC;&#x153;movesâ&#x20AC;? energy around the body to alleviate pain and other discomfort. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love what I do,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In some ways, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my spiritual practice.â&#x20AC;? Besides gastritis, Smith says sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had success with a variety of ailments, including lyme disease (â&#x20AC;&#x153;in conjunction with conventional medication) and various forms of pain, stress and depression. However, she cautions, that while many of her clients have experienced significant relief, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a one-stop cure-all and some things take awhile to alleviate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Joints are tough,â&#x20AC;? she said. Smith can be reached at 613-268-2777.

Maberly Shiatsu therapist Catherine Smith demonstrates the practice on Sheila Weeks.

A Community Improvement Plan for Marysville By Margaret Knott Correspondent

EMC News- Following a brief welcome, by Frontenac Islands Mayor Denis Doyle, to the 50 or more people in attendance at a community meeting, Frontenac Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Director Anne Marie Young, and Planner Peter Young (not related), got on with what the meeting was all about. A Community Improvement Plan (CIP) for Marysville. The move forward to developing a plan had received approval from the Township council in July. This was the first

public meeting set up to hear from the community at large. (It was noted that only 3 of the 7 businesses in the village were represented.) A CIP is tool under the planning act to encourage economic development with incentives to the private sector to encourage community projects. They are different for every community and are put together by the community, business, organizations, etc. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are many areas that might be considered for a plan according to Peter Young,â&#x20AC;? such as af-

fordable housing, seniorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s housing, façade improvement (storefront), structural upgrades, and property tax incentives to encourage property development, converting space, etc. A CIP would encourage a vision for Marysville and focus the community priorities for its future,â&#x20AC;? he said, noting that developing a good CIP can promote action among businesses, residents, community groups and the township, to accomplish projects that they would otherwise never achieve. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are focal points in any community, points

The Board of Health needs your help. The Board of Health for Kingston, Frontenac and Lennox & Addington Public Health is the governing body of your local public health agency and ensures public health programs of the highest quality are provided to the citizens of the area.

Application for Appointment to the KFL&A Board of Health The KFL&A Board of Health is seeking a Community Appointee for a term of up to three years. Applications are invited from interested residents of the City of Kingston, Frontenac County, and Lennox & Addington County. The Board of Health provides broad policy direction for the work of KFL&A Public Health and supports its health promotion and health protection activities. The board is looking for people who are interested in enhancing the health of the population and supporting the services that make the KFL&A area a healthier place. Successful applicants are recommended to the Minister of Health and Long-term Care for appointment.

that create a lasting impression. If they reflect the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s values, if it looks like an exciting place, then all that can translate into more economic activity, promoting small business development and increased options for goods and services. ( CIP,s have been used in Kingston, Loyalist Township and Sharbot Lake). As a case in point were pictures of building façade improvements and new business developments that became the anchor for the main street in Gananoque. Funding opportunities for façade improvement, municipal project grants, accessibility grants for projects were outlined. Already gathered in four groups, Peter posed three questions about Marysville for the participants to consider. 1. What qualities do you like about Marysville? 2. What are its most pressing needs? 3. What are the key goals and objectives for the village in the next fiveten years? The responses were: Like most about Marysville: people, comfortable- safe, secure, pace of life- great main street lots of potential, history small town atmosphereâ&#x20AC;Ś..

Needs most: more commercial space, a central space, water and sewage , traffic calming, beautification of streets , revitalization of buildings, on island employment, permanent public washrooms, better lighting, garbage pickup, a development plan, bicycle paths, improved sidewalks, change of attitudes, address seasonality, signage. Goals : update zoning bylaws, better lighting (consistent), better parking, develop water front, more public space, improved public washroom services clean up main street , address seasonality, festival that identifies us, capitalize on heritage, gain waterfront access, welcome new businesses, encourage walk on traffic, beautification through flowers, more winter activity. Along with the obvious implication for municipal involvement in the CIP, the final goal was: that the Township hire a business development officer to direct the process (funding, zoning, space, work directly with the public etc. ). (As an aside, a resident expressed some disillusionment with the condition of a number of Canadian flags in the village-- as an

example of simple things that need to be done.) â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is evident that Wolfe Island residents clearly appreciate the village of Marysville and see many areas for change and improvement,â&#x20AC;? Anne Marie Young said following the lively discussion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will consolidate the material over the next few months and continue our visits to residents and businesses to obtain more opinions, ideas and proposals, and report to the community in the new year.â&#x20AC;?

Quit fouling our nest 2012 Recycling Update At the west end of Freeman Road, just north of Sydenham, the road passes through a lovely deep valley that is known locally as “The Gully.” At least it was lovely until recently. Now, as you drive down through the trees to the bottom of the gully and past the open water and wetlands that feed Knowlton Lake, you’re affronted by bags of refuse, sacks of hardened cement, large tubs of what appears to be white lard (to sicken the animals that

eat it), and even a drum of driveway sealant nestled in among the cattails. How is it possible that anyone who lives in this area can treat this beautiful spot like this? Presumably these same people want to be able to enjoy all of the services our community provides—roads, ambulance service, schools, hospitals—but apparently they don’t feel any compunction to contribute to the care of the community and the environment that sustains it. Other people in the community volunteer

their time to coach kids’ soccer, drive elderly people to doctor’s appointments, do roadside cleanups, but these disgusting miscreants just sneak around when no one is looking and dump garbage to save themselves a few bucks. Note to these pigs: the majority of us want our environment to stay healthy and beautiful for our sakes and our children’s sakes, and we notice when you foul our nest. The sooner you’re caught, the better. Stephen Dukoff

Dear Editor Despite the recent article in the EMC that expresses a negative and somewhat tongue in cheek view of the recycling initiatives by Central Frontenac these initiatives have resulted in improved capture rates. Since the Township fully implemented clear bags on April 1st, 2012 we have seen a 24% increase in cans and plastics recycling and an 8.5% increase in paper recycling compared to 2011. We have also diverted 1149 Kilograms of Styrofoam up to the end of September and sent 21, 5 gallon pails of batteries away to be properly recycled. The Township is continu-

ing to be aggressive with its goal of diverting as much material out of the waste site as possible while trying to keep operational costs in check. To do this we are looking into new recycling streams as well as ways to generate revenue to offset operating costs. Throughout this winter and into next spring the waste site attendants will be working with and educating residents about recycling. To do this the attendants will work with residents one on one and go through their recycling to ensure that trash is not accidently entering the recycling bins. The attendants will also discuss the importance of rinsing out contaminated containers and separating

different materials into their appropriate streams. By ensuring contamination levels remain low it will ensure that our recyclables will continue to be accepted as a marketable product. Contamination in the recycling stream can result in costs to the municipality by the receiver for separation of recyclables. Breakdowns of what is acceptable for recycling and what is not is available on the Townships website www. centralfrontenac.com as well as at all three waste sites and the Township office.

Just because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never seen a dragon doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exist Craig Comment By Craig Bakay editorial@theheritageemc.ca

EMC Editorial â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Personally, I like to believe that dragons exist. At one time, there were a lot more of them, of course, but I like to think there are still a few of them around. I have no proof of this, but then no one has any â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;proofâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; that they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t (didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t) exist either. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that way with a lot of things in this world, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you think? One of the arguments against the existence of dragons is that no fossils exist. Well, that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really

mean much. For one thing, we have no way of knowing how many species once existed that escaped documentation in the fossil record. And given that there quite simply not very many fossils of large creatures around, there could have been a lot of things weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never know about crawling around in the millions of years before we came along. Second, for all we know, some of the fossils we call dinosaurs may indeed be dragons that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve misidentified. And, a lot of dinosaur skeletons (more than many of the natural history museums would have us believe) are incomplete. Scientists have been known to speculate incorrectly in the past. But there could also be an even more pertinent reason why no dragon fossils exist â&#x20AC;&#x201D; essentially they were dissolved by the dragonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own bodily fluids shortly after death.

How could this be? Well, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not so inconceivable if one buys into some of the rest of dragon lore, notably breathing fire and the ability to fly. Consider a creature whose digestive fluids are slightly different from most species. Our own gastric acid is a combination of hydrochloric acid, potassium chloride and sodium chloride. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actually very little hydrochloric acid in our stomachs, really only about 5,000 parts per million. But what if that amount were much higher? From high school chemistry, we should remember that hydrochloric acid dissolving something gives off hydrogen gas. If a dragon had a lot of extra hydrogen gas, it would have to get rid of it somehow, now wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it. Fortunately for the dragon, hydrogen gas is explosively flammable. Now, if a dragonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teeth are a little different from every

other creature in that they are more like flint and capable of creating sparks . . . well, you get the idea. A lot of hydrogen gas in a dragonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s system also goes a long way towards explaining how something very large can get off the ground. A dragonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wings donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to provide much lift for a bag of hydrogen and it could be they are (were) primarily for maneuvering and thrust. The legend of dragons hoarding gold also plays into this well. Gold, which can only be dissolved by aqua regia, a combination of nitric and hydrochloric acid, is also a relatively soft metal and presumably quite comfortable if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a dragon. Now, it may be that any dragons that did exist are long since gone, lack of habitat, overhunting, inability to adapt, etc. But the next time you see something flying a long way away . . .

In Our Opinion

Cancelling marathon was the right call EMC Editorial - The old adage â&#x20AC;&#x153;better late than neverâ&#x20AC;? perfectly describes the decision to cancel the New York City marathon in the wake of what Americans are calling Superstorm Sandy. The original decision to forge ahead with the event, despite the devastation the storm caused not only in New York but in several other states, was met with a wave of criticism. Defending the decision, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said the marathon would â&#x20AC;&#x153;give people something to cheer about in whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a very dismal week for a lot of people.â&#x20AC;? Not surprisingly, the sentiment didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t resonate with the millions of people who were still without power, or those who had lost their loved ones or their homes. Those who protested the decision argued, and rightly so, that the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resources could be better used helping those in need. Public pressure to cancel the marathon grew in the days leading up to the event, especially on social media. One Facebook group, created by a self-described â&#x20AC;&#x153;NYC resident who deeply cares for her city,â&#x20AC;? amassed some 47,000 â&#x20AC;&#x153;likes.â&#x20AC;? Finally, on Friday, Nov. 2, just two days before the marathon was to be held, Bloomberg backtracked on his previous comments and cancelled the event, saying in a statement: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We would not want a cloud to hang over the race or its participants, and so we have decided to cancel it.â&#x20AC;? The action was the right one, despite the fact that the sentiment was all wrong. Cancelling the event was a chance for Bloomberg to admit the error of his ways, reach out to those devastated by Sandy, and promise that resources would be made available to those in need. Instead, he focused on the event, and not wanting to put a damper on it in the aftermath of the storm. In this way, the cancellation was also â&#x20AC;&#x153;too little, too late,â&#x20AC;? especially after thousands of runners had already flocked to the city for the event. But in an inspiring turn of events, marathoners from all over the world who had gathered in the Big Apple for the race reached out to help those in need. Some donated their hotel rooms to New Yorkers without homes, while others ran anyway, raising money for Sandy relief in the process. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a shame the marathon had to be cancelled for the first time in its 42-year history. But it was also the only good decision that could have been made during what has been a devastating week for one of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most vibrant cities.

Sugar bowl represented so much more than egg money for Mother Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories By Mary Cook

EMC Lifestyle - It was a blue sugar bowl. Much larger than the one we used every day on the kitchen table. Father said it had been in his family as long as he could remember. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t used for sugar anymore, though. It was where Mother kept her egg money. It had a matching jug too, but it just stood beside the sugar bowl, and was never used. I figured the reason Mother used the sugar bowl for her egg money, and not the jug, was because it had a lid on it. To protect what was inside, sort of. Goodness knows we kids would never dare go into the sugar bowl without permission, although sometimes, if we had tired of looking around Eatonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s catalogue in an evening of sitting around the kitchen table, Mother would let me take down the sugar bowl, and count her egg money. Mother never heard of egg money when she moved to that back woods farm in Renfrew County after living 18 years in New York City. But it was Aunt Bertha, Mrs. Beam too, who told her about saving a penny here, and a penny there, and it was to be hers alone. Mrs. Beam snorted when she told mother about it being hers alone though. Sadly Mother soon found out what she meant. Now, about the egg money. It was Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s challenge to keep money in the sugar bowl. That meant that every week she went into Renfrew and peddled her wares door to door. At first, Mother thought that that meant

just peddling eggs. But Aunt Bertha was quick to show her how she could add greatly to her egg money. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just from selling eggs, you know,â&#x20AC;? she told Mother. Everyone in Renfrew likes a fresh chicken now and again Aunt Bertha said. Soon Mother added sticky buns, freshly churned butter and homemade soap to her wares. Once she tried selling small braided rugs, and hand sewn aprons, but she soon found out the women of Renfrew were just as busy themselves as she was making rugs and aprons. Aunt Bertha said the money could be used for anything she wanted. New print from Walker Store, maybe a fresh pair of lisle stockings. But Mother had other plans for her egg money. She longed to go back to New York. Not to stay of course, which was always a fear deep in my heart, because she talked about the place so often and I knew how much she missed the life she once led. No, it would be just for a visit to spend a few days with her friend Rosieâ&#x20AC;Ś and maybe go to an opera again, or visit the museums she loved. Yes, she longed for just one trip back to New York, and her wish was that one day there would be enough egg money in the blue sugar bowl to go back for a visit. Often, at night, she would take the bowl down from the back to the wall cupboard and spread the money out on the oilcloth on the kitchen table. She would count and stack the coins in order, and if there were any bills, she would flatten them out and put a salt shaker on them to hold them flat. And then, she would write the amount and the date on a slip of paper and tuck it into the sugar bowl with the money. And back it would go on

the shelf in the cupboard. There would be a big sigh. Never would there be enough money for the trip back to New York. And it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t because she would dip into it for something frivolous like silk stockings or a new hat. No the reason was much simpler than that. It would be because Father would have had to have some of the few coins she had worked so hard to accumulate. Father never had more than a few cents in his overall pockets. And so, when something wore out, like it often did on the farm, or a new piece of harness was needed, inner tubes to replace the well, patched ones on the car, or even maybe, a new plow point, it was from the egg money Father would have to go. There would be so much sadness on such a day. I always dreaded being in the kitchen when that happened. Father would come in from the barns, stop just inside the kitchen door, and pause as if he was undecided where he was heading. If Mother was busy at the stove, or at the wash tub, she would pause for just a moment, and a look of sadness would come over her face. Father would slowly walk over to the cupboard, and take down the blue jug and take out a few coins, or one or two of the bills, cram them into his overallsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; pocket and quietly quit the house. Not a word would be spoken. We would hear him leave the yard in the wagon or buggy, and I would know he was headed into Renfrew or to Briscoeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s General Store with a few coins from Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s egg money to get what was needed to keep the farm going. And I would know that once again, Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dream of a trip back to her beloved New York was as far away as ever.

Art in the park Mark Bergin

columnist editorial@theheritageemc.ca

EMC Lifestyle – A gorgeous, and sometimes mysterious, park that is Canada’s largest outdoor gallery sits on the shores of the Gananoque River. I’ve visited many times and am always in awe. What a wonderful place for a stroll. The park’s not named on the map that’s downloadable from the town of Gananoque’s own website. Nor is it even mentioned in the town’s “Arts, Culture and Heritage”

section of the website. In the 2012 Tourist Guide, the park rates one meagre sentence under Arts and Culture and isn’t even mentioned under parks. The nature-centred art gallery goes by different names around town: Confederation Park, Sculpture Park, Confederation Sculpture Park, and sometimes simply the art park. I had to search through several people to find out about the park/gallery’s background. And, after some digging, I finally found it listed under “Parks and Recreation” on the town’s website. This unique setting needs to be highly promoted as a serious arts and cultural attraction. It’s more than a park. The art park’s site beside

the Gananoque Tourist Information Centre once housed the Jones Shovel Company, an industrial centre that sat on both sides of the river. The company closed in the early 1960s. For Canada’s Centennial, the local Chamber of Commerce and the Rotary Club developed a park on the former Jones Shovel site, and dedicated it on July 1, 1967. Over time, winding walkways, lighting and a fountain were added. Since 1962, the Canada Council Art Bank has collected works by the finest Canadian artists. It now holds the world’s largest collection of contemporary Canadian art. More than one-third of the collection is on view in public spaces and private organizations across Canada,

through art rentals, loans, and outreach programs. In the 1990s, members of Gananoque’s Rotary Club approached the Canada Council Art Bank. Sculptures were leased for inclusion in the beautiful park beside the Gananoque River. The path winding its way through the park, takes you from one sculpture to the next. 2004 marked a new era for the park. Members of the Sculpture Committee decid-

ed to begin returning sculptures to the Canada Council Art Bank. To replace the returned sculptures, the committee commissions local artists to create sculptures for the park. The committee’s mission is to foster an appreciation of the arts and culture in the community and to promote the sculptures in Confederation Park. The first new work installed was the flying Blue Heron by Wolfe Island’s

Bruck Mellon. Next came the standing Blue Heron, also by Bruce Mellon. Last year, the beautiful Pitch Pine, by Rick Lapointe, of Kingston, was installed. A waterfall forms a central focal point at the north end of the park. Sculptures sit on both sides of the river. A footbridge over the waterfall links the two sides of the “gallery.” See Art page 15

EMC - Your Community Newspaper

time with children playing Pooh sticks on the bridge—a game created by A.A. Milne in the Winnie the Pooh series. Participants drop their sticks on one side of the bridge and the winner is the one whose stick comes out

first on the far side. It’s hours of fun for children and adults who are willing to abandon themselves to the joy of children’s games. For photographers, at this time of year the low sun provides beauti-

ful lighting with striking shadows to capture the textures and form of the sculptures. Located by the shores of the Gananoque River, it is a peaceful gallery. The sculptures fit the form and style of the park. They don’t intrude on the natural beauty. A large metal oak leaf in a pond looks as if it is skimming along the surface, about to become airborne. Crafted by Mike Tennant, Leaf (2004) is dedicated to the trees of Gananoque, past, present and future. Cascades III (1977) is a white metal structure that, despite being a hard metallic creation, looks like it belongs. It’s in harmony with the nearby waterfall. The piece was created by Andrew Dutkewych. Originally from Vienna, Austria, Dutkewych earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts

degree from the Philadelphia College of Art and a post-graduate diploma from the Slade School of Art in England. Each time I visit, I’m left with the sense that we should create more outdoor galleries in the region. There’s a special feeling to breathing fresh air while walking through an art gallery. After a visit to the outdoor gallery in the park, you can take a stroll along lovely King Street, It is an easy drive from Kingston to the outdoor gallery. I’d recommend taking Hwy 2 out of Kingston. You will be treated to beautiful scenery along the highway as you make your way past Howe Island and several smaller islands along the St. Lawrence River and into Gananoque. Just after eastbound Hwy 2 takes a sharp left

turn at Main Street, a bridge crosses the Gananoque River. On your left side, you’ll see the Tourist Information Centre. Parking is available behind the centre, along Park Street. For a delightful lunch, I always recommend my favorite Chinese restaurant in the region: House of Dragon at 138 King Street East. In the late summer, I took four teens there, before we attended a play at the Thousand Islands Playhouse. I’d raved about the restaurant and feared that I may have gone overboard and thought, “What if they don’t like it?” No worries. All said it was the best Asian food they’d ever had. Along the same block, at 162 King Street East, you’ll find one of my favourite bakeries, Panaché. In addition to bread and other baked goods, they also offer light meals.

Speeding traffic a problem in Verona, Council told Reporter

EMC News – Speed limits don’t seem to work in Verona, resident Elaine Abrams told South Frontenac Council at its regular Committee of the Whole meeting in Sydenham last week. “We have children living on Main Street and even the 40 kph zone by the school doesn’t seem to work,” she said. “Twice I’ve had people pass me when I’ve been going the (speed) limit.” Abrams presented a petition to Council asking it to look into the matter and she said respondents had several suggestions, including traffic lights. “We think that stop signs might work,” she said. “We’re suggesting three — at Maple Drive, about halfway through the hamlet and at Pine Ridge Drive.” And then she suggested rumble strips, raised bumps running transverse across a road, that alert drivers to an impending need to slow down, that didn’t seem to

be a viable option to Mayor Gary Davison. “We’ve had people who live beside them (rumble strips) who complain about the noise,” said Davison. “But we’ll turn this over to our Public Works Committee and see what they come up with.” (According to Wikipedia, the Town of Chapel Hill, NC, had rumble strips removed in 2004 because they created general noise levels of 60 to 77 decibels, which exceeded the town’s 60 decibel noise limit bylaw during nighttime hours.) Coun. John McDougall said he’s had conversations with residents and received letters asking for some kind of pedestrian crosswalks in Verona, most notably at the doctor’s office and Post Office. “Ideally, I’d like to see more police patrols but I realize that’s living in a fairy world,” said Coun. Ron Vandewal. “And if you stop them outside the hamlet, they’ll be back up to speed before they reach Revell’s. Public Works Man-

ager Mark Segsworth said Council can do some things on Road 38 by bylaw, but “there are lots of traffic issues in Verona and it’s only getting worse. “We need to look at a lot of options.” “I quite agree it’s a serious problem but when they built that road, they weren’t thinking about the number of cars and trucks we have today,” said Coun. Bill Robinson. “And when you stop big trucks, they make a lot of noise slowing down.” “I think most of our hamlets have the same problem,” said Davison.

Coat of arms South Frontenac Council gave its approval to the Township Coat of Arms a Committee of the Whole last week in Sydenham.

Country superstar Carrie Underwood to play K-Rock Centre sponds to nearly 70,000 disasters across the United States. This donation will help the Red Cross provide shelter, food, and emotional support for those in need after a disaster. Proceeds from her Canadian concerts will be donated to the Canadian Red Cross. Carrie’s performance and the spectacular show production are being heralded by media. “Carrie’s always been great, but now she’s in a league of her own,” shared WTHT on-air personality Cory Garrison. “It was more than a show, it was an experience.” The Hartford Courant reviewer stated, “Underwood’s stage show was one of the most spectacular in recent memory.” AOL’s theboot.com expressed, “Leaving fans and music industry pals thoroughly awed by the perfect storm of visuals, special effects and, of course, Carrie’s amazing vocals,” while cmt. com said, “Start to finish, it will be tough for any country artist to top what Underwood

EMC Entertainment – Something big is coming to the K-Rock. Superstar Carrie Underwood will bring her critically acclaimed “Blown Away Tour” to Kingston on Saturday, March 30, 2013. Hunter Hayes will join Carrie as her special guest. A donation of $1 from each ticket sold on the North American leg of “The Blown Away Tour” will continue in 2013 to support Red Cross disaster relief. Every year, the American Red Cross prepares for and re-

is delivering on this tour.” When Carrie performed at the Staples Center in Los Angeles earlier this month the LA Times reported, “A spectacular production… full of dazzling costume changes, creative staging and megawatts of musical wattage.” Carrie’s two previous headline tours, 2008’s “Carnival Ride Tour” and 2010’s “Play On Tour,” performed for a combined total of nearly 250 shows with 2.2 million fans in attendance, and she wrapped both years as the top-ranked female country touring artist. Carrie’s Blown Away album made history this spring by debuting at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart, making Carrie only the second country artist in the 47-year history of the chart to have each of their first four albums debut at No. 1. Blown Away also debuted at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart, making Carrie only the second country artist in history to have three consecutive albums debut at No. 1. Blown Away became country’s best-selling digital album debut since

2010 and has now sold a million copies. The album’s first two singles, “Good Girl” and “Blown Away,” both reached No. 1 status earning her a total of three weeks atop the country airplay charts in 2012, more than any other female country artist this year.

New OPP East Region facility a tribute to staff, service sroy@perfprint.ca

EMC News - What took five years and many sleepless nights to achieve was a point of great celebration recently when the new Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) East Region headquarters opened in Smiths Falls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To say itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s magnificent,â&#x20AC;? Lanark County Warden and retired OPP officer, John Gemmell said before pausing to collect his thoughts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beyond words.â&#x20AC;? He spoke on behalf of the many retired officers who returned to their former headquarters Oct. 30 when he congratulated the organization on providing their staff with a working environment that is truly state-of-the-art. OPP East Region Chief Superintendent Gary Couture said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been thinking of Gemmell, who had served as the in-service training leader, during the one-year building process. Those who took part in a building tour last week saw the brand new indoor training facility complete with rubberized flooring for shock absorption. The two-storey, 50,000 square foot facility has a multitude of improvements in virtually every corridor and section. The second floor office areas are sectioned off into units with department commanders and their staff in close contact. The building is also considered environmentally efficient with motion sensor lights in each office. Consideration has also been given to the visually impaired as all office signs have

Brail and the staircase has a bright red, texturized landing for easier identification. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are committed to giving our police officers the tools they need to do their job,â&#x20AC;? said Yasir Naqvi, Ottawa-Centre Member of Provincial Parliament and representative for Madeleine Meilleur, Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those who protect us deserve the best possible work place environment.â&#x20AC;? Modernization Project The opening of the East Region building is one of 18 facilities in 16 communities being constructed under the OPP Modernization Project. The agreement between Shield Infrastructure Partnership and Infrastructure Ontario is valued at $292.7 million and includes the building, design and maintenance of the facilities for 30 years. OPP Commissioner, Chris Lewis congratulated the staff of East Region for their commitment to providing seamless service through the construction project and move that was completed on Sept. 26. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This has been a difficult process for you guys,â&#x20AC;? Commander Lewis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My hat is off and [I give you] my applause.â&#x20AC;? Bernie Murphy, Superintendent director for the behavioural, forensic and electronic services, spoke at the opening as the forensics lab received the most dramatic improvement within the new building. The lab is completely secure and isolated from its ad-

joining office area. The department now has two garages: one with a lift in it to inspect vehicles involved in crimes (a first for the east region) and the second to house the labâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new vehicles that allow staff to stand up and work within the large van. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leaps and bounds ahead of what we were working with,â&#x20AC;? added Jeff Christink, forensic lab staff member who provided tours of the facility last Tuesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our entire office was probably the size of the two garage bays.â&#x20AC;? The forensics lab now has a well laid out office that allows them to more easily meet the standard of isolation of evidence, which then helps in proving a case in a court of law. The new lab has three completely separate biolabs: one for the victim, one for the suspect and one for the crime scene. These labs will be one-way access rooms with two ante-rooms and negative air pressure throughout. Public open house Chief Superintendent Couture is pleased to see his staff provided with the facilities needed to solve crimes now and into the future, noting the facility is truly a public building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For us, this belongs to the community,â&#x20AC;? Chief Superintendent Couture said. Plans are under way to host a public open house of OPP East Region in spring 2013. Further details on this event will be available at a later date. Connections to the community may be increasing at the Queen

staff occupied a space in the then Rideau Regional Centre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have come a long way ladies and gentlemen,â&#x20AC;? Chief Superintendent Couture said. The east region serves the communities from the Quebec border to Quinte West, encompassing the entire National Capital region and right up to the New York State border creating a truly diverse catchment area of urban, rural, forest and international law.

This deal was necessary for the town to acquire the land and provide water and sewer services to the new OPP facility - a must for the building.

stice Day. Though the day has a significant connection to World War I, it also honors the men and women who fought for Canada in World War II, the Korean War and those who continue to serve in the military. Over the years, more than 1.5 million Canadians have fought for their country and to defend the rights and freedoms of non-Canadians as well. Among the Remembrance Day traditions is the wearing of poppies, which are worn as the symbol of remembrance and a reminder of the bloodred flower that grows on the former battlefields of France and Belgium.

This 1951 Hudson Hornet sedan has won many awards over the years EMC Lifestyle - In 1948, the Hudson Motor Car Company brought out one of the most stunning postwar cars that ever hit the pavement. They were long, low, and wide, and known as “stepdown” Hudsons because the floor was cradled between the frame rails instead of above them. The Hudson Hornet was added to the lineup of cars in 1951 and it set all-time stock car records not with an overhead-valve V8 engine but with a flathead six engineered for maximum power and performance. With its low centre of gravity, it could slide around corners in races when other cars would flip over. The tough six with 308 cubic inches breathed through dual carbs and cranked out 145 horsepower, very respectable for its day. Neil Tompkins of Kemptville, Ont., owns a beautiful blue 1951 Hudson Hornet four-door sedan which

he found several years ago in Quyon, Quebec. The car originally came from West Virginia when a draft dodger from the Vietnam War quietly brought it across the border. He soon discovered the car had the wrong engine, a 262 cubic inch unit, and he replaced it with the proper 308 cubic inch six which he found in Syracuse, New York. With skill he had acquired from working on his other cars, including the 1935 Hudson Terraplane recently featured in this column, he was able to perform the engine surgery by himself. Because of the car’s unusual styling, Neil took some good-hearted kidding from some of his friends. When Cliff Theriault first saw the car, he referred to it as an “upside-down bathtub.” Each time he and Neil would drive into Kemptville in the car, Cliff would cover his head with a towel so no one would see

him in the car. I have also heard of these cars referred to as “batmobiles” because of their low and sleek styling. The car required no paint or upholstery when Neil bought it, but the rear end ratio was too high for highway driving and was replaced with a 3:07 gear

out of a ’54 Hudson. Over the years, Neil’s ’51 Hudson Hornet has won numerous awards at car shows. A close look at the accompanying photo shows the radio aerial mounted on the roof and window shades along the sides to keep out the heat on a hot day. Hudson merged with

Nash in 1954 to create American Motors, and the last cars to carry the Hudson name were built in 1957, thus ending 48 years of a proud marque. Many thanks to classic car enthusiast Doug Janney of Renfrew, Ontario, for suggesting this story. 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, email

EMC Lifestyle – Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) has fascinated me since my youth. A high school science teacher introduced me to his work, which was only mentioned, if at all, as an aside in science texts. The more I learned, the more it seemed like there was an attempt to obliterate his name. His accomplishments catalyzed the development of our electronic world. His achievements include the discovery and development of alternating current (AC), the electric motor, the patents for radio (Marconi is credited with the first transAtlantic radio transmission), early research on XRays, radar, remote control, and robotics. He was the first scientist to understand the importance of the ionosphere for communications. This is not to say that there hasn’t been recognition for Tesla. In 1960, the term “tesla” was coined by the General Conference on Weights and Measures for

the SI unit of measurement for magnetic field strength. There’s a Nikola Tesla Museum in Belgrade, which houses an urn with his ashes. There’s another museum in Colorado. Tesla has a street corner named after him in New York City and he’s featured in monuments in Niagara Falls in New York and Ontario. This year was a banner year. The Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe, raised more than two million dollars, and in October purchased the property on Long Island where Tesla’s most ambitious projects were planned. Jane Alcorn, president of the center, said they plan to turn the location into a museum. But Nikola Tesla remains an enigma. Many have never heard the name, despite the fact that his discoveries literally brighten our world. Born in 1856 in the Austrian Empire and trained in engineering, in 1881 he went to Budapest, Hungary to work at a telegraph company. The following year, he moved to France to work for the Continental Edison Company. His dream of living in America came true in 1884 when he sailed to New York to work as an electrical engineer for Thomas Edison. Tesla’s work is shrouded in mystery and corporate

creepy. And wrong. Tesla resigned and formed his own company, Tesla Electric Light and Manufacturing. Tesla wanted to develop alternating current transmission. His investors wanted him to apply his talents elsewhere. He refused. They fired him. Again penniless, Tesla found himself working as a laborer digging ditches to survive. In 1887, he started the Tesla Electric Company. His investors funded a laboratory in Manhattan. Westinghouse engineers discovered that Nikola Tesla had succeeded in perfecting an efficient electric system. Westinghouse paid $60,000 in cash and royalty fees for Tesla’s designs. They also hired him as a consultant. Despite Edison’s opposition, Tesla’s AC system was adopted to tap the power of Niagara Falls. Tesla had his flaws. He could be flamboyant and mysterious, and at times too eager to put on a show. As a publicity stunt, he once sat in a lab as airborne visible “lightning” screamed around the room and illuminated lamps he held in his hands. No wires involved. As early as 1891, Tesla was able to demonstrate wireless energy transmission. That year, he patented the Tesla coil. He set up laboratories on Fifth Avenue and Houston Streets in New York, where he lit electric lamps wirelessly.

in life commented, “Sometimes I feel that by not marrying, I made too great a sacrifice to my work.” He often acted as a recluse, but had no difficulty in social situations. He has been described as sweet, modest and gentlemanly. At times he could be belligerent. He believed that gender equality was essential to deal with the negative effects of the social subservience of women. He predicted a future with women as the dominant sex. He strongly opposed religious fanaticism of any kind. He made the July 20, 1931 cover of Time Magazine. While working for Edison, doors of hope opened for Tesla. Edison promised great things for Tesla if he could redesign and improve Edison’s direct current (DC) motors and generators, which were highly inefficient. Tesla succeeded. Edison reneged. Tesla and Edison butted heads. Edison was an inventor and a business man. His goal was to maximize profits. Edison was good friends with Henry Ford who did not want to see the development of electric cars. Tesla’s hopes and goals ran counter to profit-making. Edison waged an intellectual and public relations war against Tesla’s electrical alternating current system. To illustrate the dangers of AC, Edison electrocuted animals, including Topsy the elephant at Luna Park, Coney Island. He filmed the electrocution. That’s just

He proved that wireless control of machines was possible. In 1898, in New York’s Madison Square Garden, Tesla demonstrated a remote-controlled boat. That same year someone started a suspicious fire, burning his New York laboratory to the ground. The following year, he moved to Colorado Springs and began ambitious experiments. Tesla determined that waves of energy in the earth can be used to transmit power to any point on the globe. In experiments, he successfully showed that wireless lamps could be illuminated miles from the laboratory. “People who don’t have electrical power are living in poverty,” said electrical engineer Toby Grotz. “Tesla saw the division between the haves and have-nots, and he was determined to make electric power equally available to all people on the planet as a gift.” Tesla hoped free power would end wars. He naively thought that if power was available to everyone, there would be nothing over which to fight. He didn’t account for

corporate and political greed. Following his success in Colorado, Tesla moved back to New York City. Financial backers, including famed financier J.P. Morgan, were convinced that Tesla could build a world broadcasting system that could earn millions of dollars. In 1900, the construction of Wardenclyffe began. Tesla made it known that he was going to demonstrate the possibility of a wireless global power and communications system. Adam Trombly, Director of Project Earth for the Institute for Advanced Studies at Aspen Colorado noted: “Tesla said that without fuel, solar energy, or wind power, he could generate electrical power. That was something fuel companies didn’t want to happen. He was also able to broadcast electrical power through the air without wires. The project was stopped by J.P. Morgan when the commercial consequences (free energy) became obvious.” Some historians and philosophers believe that Tesla stopped certain aspects of his work because he feared his ideas would be used for military purposes. Imagine en-

ergy machines that could take planes out of the sky or target millions of volts at a city. The effects could equal or outdo an atomic bomb. In recent years, Tesla’s name is seeping back into modern consciousness. There are many groups promoting him and his work. David Bowie played the role of Tesla in the movie The Prestige (2006), which accurately portrayed some of Tesla’s concepts, including Tesla coils and the concept of illuminating lights wirelessly from a distance. The Sorcerer’s Apprentice movie (2010) made interesting use of Tesla coils to create beautiful sounds. This isn’t sci-fi. Tesla coils are used by avant garde bands in the creation of electronic music. This month, we witnessed terrible destruction by Hurricane Sandy. Following a Huffington Post web story about New Yorkers trying to live without power, one wry comment, attributed to “Randy_Ayo,” simply noted: “We should have gone with Tesla’s system.” That’s an understatement.

Theatre 5 set to cook up some comedy at local pub By Kristen Coughlar

kcoughlar@perfprint.ca

EMC Entertainment â&#x20AC;&#x201C; After a six-year hiatus, Theatre 5â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s improv troupe is ready to step back into the spotlight. Theatre 5â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s improv troupe has been entertaining Kingston and area audiences for over 30 years under the banner of Theatre 5; however, since the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relocation to Baiden Street six years ago, a Highly Improvable Comedy Show has not been staged. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had so much to do to turn this into a theatre. Although we immediately started improve meetings on Sunday afternoon, we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do much in the way of shows,â&#x20AC;? explained Valerie Robertson, Theatre 5â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s founder. Now that the company has settled into its new home, the improv troupe is ready to once again perform for audiences and one of the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first public appearances is set for this Saturday at the Creekside Bar and Grill in Battersea. Theatre 5â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s improv troupe

entertains audiences with a style of improvisational comedy known as Short Form, which consists of short scenes constructed from predetermined games that are driven by audience feedback. The troupe has a list of approximately 35 games. They will arm themselves with 14 going into Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show at the Creekside Bar and Grill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all very different,â&#x20AC;? Robertson explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one game called Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Worst where we have everybody line up and we ask the audience for their idea of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worst of a certain job.â&#x20AC;? Another game, Every Other Line, asks the audience to provide the relationship between two actors (brother/sister, husband/wife, boss/employee, etc.). Using that relationship, it is up to one actor to lay the groundwork for a scene. The audience is then tasked with providing the page number of a book, held by the other actor. Every other line of that book page will serve as the actorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s response to their counterpart.

For example, if the actor who has set the scene says, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a hard working person and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like being in this situationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, the actor reading the book might respond â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the colour purple suits you fine.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Robertson said improv is a very special type of talent, a talent not everyone has.

Author shares world of fantasy with a message Correspondent

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; American fantasy writer Brian Davis visited Ottawa, Kingston, Cornwall and Brockville last week, as part of his cross-Canada tour to introduce his more than 25 books, contemporary writing suitable for the whole family. Davis is an author of Dragons in Our Midst, Oracles of Fire, Dragons of Starlight, Tales of Starlight and Echoes from the Edge series. These books have made such an impact on all ages, that just about every day, Davis receives messages telling him how much his books have changed lives. One note came from a six year-old girl whose mother had read Racing Dragons. Now the little girl doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t depend on her night light anymore. Other messages have come from an 88 year-old great grandmother who had terminal cancer as well as six different teenagers who indicated that his books kept them from taking their lives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In my books some are pretty heavy as far as the message and some are more covert,â&#x20AC;? said Davis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Very strong on faith, courage, and sacrifice kind of messages.â&#x20AC;? When Davis took a readersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; poll of his first four books, asking which was their favourite, Circles of Seven won out, perhaps because it is a lesson on contentment. Davis started a writing exercise to encourage his children to use their imaginations and to create wonderful stories. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The reason why I started writing 19 years ago was because my children were having trouble in writing class,â&#x20AC;? said Davis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So I wanted to encour-

age them to write by writing a story with them, to get them involved in the creative process. Back then I was a fulltime computer professional.â&#x20AC;? Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s input Davis and his wife, Susie were blessed with seven children, four girls and three boys, who Susie homeschooled. So Davis wrote a chapter of a story which Susie read to the children for their input and suggestions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the end of the reading time I asked the kids, what do you think will happen next?â&#x20AC;? said Davis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They would give me their ideas and what should happen to the story and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d try to put their ideas in the story.â&#x20AC;? Again Susie read the story with the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s input. As they heard their suggestions, they became more excited about the story content. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Over time the story grew and their ideas grew and I knew they were ready to write a couple of paragraphs,â&#x20AC;? indicated Davis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So that was their initiation to the excitement of writing. Over time they were glad to do it because they were excited about the story. Their ideas started with a couple of paragraphs, grew to a couple of pages, then five pages and I could not keep up with their ideas. So they said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;well dad if you cannot keep up, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll write our own storiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;; that was exactly what I was hoping for.â&#x20AC;? Their oldest son James, 30 years of age, wrote a novel Coyote Pilgrim. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My 21 year-old daughter has two published books,â&#x20AC;? said Davis. So the whole family has incorporated writing in their careers one way or another. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a computer professional, it was a fine job, but I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t making an impact on anybody, so I thought perhaps

I could expand this and help other people,â&#x20AC;? he explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So I decided I wanted to be an author. I went to writing conferences and became better and better. One night I had a dream about a boy who could breathe fire. I told James about it and we brainstormed about a boy who could breathe fire.â&#x20AC;? This was the beginning of the fantasy series on which Davis embarked. Davis has been writing full-time for the last 10 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I researched fantasy and saw one of the biggest drawing powers, that it helped the kids to remember the stories by adding fantasy elements,â&#x20AC;? he said.

The Cairn Terrier

Knowledge is power. In the coming weeks the EMC will seek to educate its readers about various dog breeds. Whether shopping for a canine companion at the local humane society or with an Ontario breeder, an informed decision will ensure you find the perfect family pet. By Kristen Coughlar

kcoughlar@perfprint.ca

EMC Lifestyle - The way Jan Morgan sees it, you’re either a terrier person or you’re not. Morgan is the owner of Cabaret Cairns located in the Durham Region and has been breeding Cairn Terriers for 17 years. Prior to being introduced to the Cairn Terrier, Morgan saw herself as a large dog person, having owned Golden Retrievers and Labradors. It wasn’t until she thought about becoming a breeder that she broadened her focus and began looking at smaller breeds. “I lived in the suburbs and when I was looking at Golden Retrievers to breed—they can have eight, 10, 12 puppies in a litter—there was no way I could do that properly. I needed to focus on a smaller breed.” Morgan honed in on the Shetland Sheepdog and Cairn Terrier. Morgan recalls having always had a love of collies, so one would have expected the Sheltie to win out against its competition. “Cairns won hands down when I started doing my research and met a bunch of breeders,” she said. “If I had

persevered I might have found the right sheltie breeder, but I went to three or four of them and gave up after that because they were just not the right fit for my family.” Somewhere along the way, Morgan said she became a Terrier person. “I just love Terriers. I love their spirit, I love their quickness and their cleverness and their problem solving capabilities; they just blow my mind.” The origin of the Cairn Terrier dates back about 200 years to the Scottish Highlands. According to the Cairn Terrier Club, the breed was originally used by crofters, shepherds and foxhunters for pest control. They would hunt burrowing quarry—foxes, rabbits and rats—among the Scottish Cairns, manmade piles of stone that, among other things, can serve as a grave marker or monument honouring the dead. In the 19th century the Cairn Terrier’s quarry expanded to include badgers and otters. According to the Canadian standard, Cairns are approximately 11-12 inches at the withers and weigh between 14 and 16 pounds. Morgan explained that Cairns are a non-shedding breed with a double coat. They have a dense, soft un-

dercoat and a coarse outer coat, and can come in a variety of colours including cream, wheaten, red, grey or nearly black. Grooming requirements are minimal and include a good brushing and hand stripping twice a year. As far as exercise, Morgan said that Cairns typically will adjust their energy level suit the environment in which they are placed. “They would never refuse a walk, but if it’s a rainy day and I don’t want to walk them they’re fine.” This isn’t to say that the breed doesn’t require activity. Morgan noted that a Cairn needs to be occupied. “A bored terrier, like any bored dog, will get into trouble” she said, noting that the breed enjoys playing fetch, playing in water, going for walks, and chasing squirrels. That playfulness is something that stays with Cairns as they age. “They stay playful all their lives…I have a 12-year-old now and I’m amazed at her energy level,” Morgan said of their temperament. She also noted that the breed is very clever, loyal and lovable. No dog is without its faults. Morgan noted that they can’t be walked off leash and they do bark. She calls it a reactive

breed that will bark at a squirrel outdoors or the sound of a doorbell. If off leash, they are likely to take off after a rabbit or squirrel if they catch the quarry in their sights. Cairns typically live long lives. They do, however, have some health issues. “The most serious one is a liver shunt issue. That is present at birth and there are tests that you can do to find out if it’s there or not…I haven’t had one, touch on wood,” Morgan said. “The other thing that I worry a little bit about is Legg–Perthes…it’s a joint issue which can give the dog pain and make him limp.” Overall, Morgan described the breed as being of low-maintenance, of relative good health, and happy, bright and fearless. She said she typically likes to place Cairns with retired individuals and couples or families with older children. She noted that people and families with heavy work schedules and small children are not ideal placements, as they typically don’t have the commitment level required to properly raise a puppy. As with any breed, it is important for a Cairn to be placed in an appropriate home. If you think you might
