Draft safe properties bylaw draws plenty of fire from Council By Craig Bakay Reporter

EMC News – Central Frontenac staff will have its hands full making all the changes Council requested to a proposed re-working of the Township’s Safe Properties Bylaw at its regular meeting last week in Sharbot Lake. Council had agreed to take a look at revising the existing bylaw after requests from a special interest group in the Arden area for a property standards bylaw were rejected, but judging by the response to the draft proposals from councilors last week, there

is still a lot of re-working to be done. “I see a lot of discrepancies with respect to the Municipal Act, especially sections 8 and 9,” said Coun. Tom Dewey. “And section 130 doesn’t exist any more, it has been repealed.” Dewey said he especially would like to see the word “tidy” removed from section 4, which refers to “safe and orderly condition” as well as restricting such requirements to front and side yards. However, Dewey said he’d like to see boats added to the list of things not allowed in certain

instances. One aspect of the proposed bylaw that came under particular fire was a prohibition on “long grass.” “We must remain cognizant of the fact we live in a forest and swamps,” said Coun. Norm Guntensperger. “If we pass this, we’ll be very busy cutting grass.” “I was very surprised to see ‘long grass’ in there,” said Coun. Heather Fox. “I thought we’d taken that out. “A lot of people don’t believe in cutting grass because of the environment.”

“We’re insisting the natural environment come up around lake fronts and for good reason,” said Guntensperger. “We have to be consistent.” “I’m a long-grass lover,” said Mayor Janet Gutowski. “Some people call it ‘hay,’” said Coun. Jeff Matson. Matson also had concerns over what constitutes ‘deep water,’ which would require fencing under the proposal. “Is the beaver pond behind my house deep water?” he said. “I agree we do have to look after the health and safety of people but at whose discretion?”

Coun. Frances Smith suggested there was too much generalization in the bylaw, referring to a section that says properties must be kept free of “inoperable vehicles, trailers, machinery, tools, tires, appliances, equipment or any parts thereof” and another that says every property shall be kept free from “any pit, excavation or deep water that is unfenced or unprotected against dangerous risk of accident”. “We’re trying to solve everybody’s problems with one bylaw,” she said. Council sent the draft bylaw back to staff for further revision.

Co-op solar power project passes first hurdle in Central Frontenac By Craig Bakay Reporter

lease payments made to the Township over a 20year period would total about $160,000. Coun. Jeff Matson said he had concerns about the 20-year lease condition. “What happens if we centralize our public works operations and the building is no longer viable?” Matson said. “The lease would need a non-destructive clause,” Robery said. “The option to move the solar panels is not possible. “Any new owner would have to take over the agreement.” Mayor Janet Gutowski was less concerned with the term of the lease. “Even if our public works central garage proposal were to fly, it’s un-

likely we’d want to get rid of the Mountain Grove garage because of its proximity to the landfill site,” she said. “(However) there may be other legal ramifications we will have to check.”

EMC News - Central Frontenac Council agreed to a letter of intent with Queen Street Solar Cooperative at its regular meeting last week in Sharbot Lake that could pave the way to solar panels appearing on many municipal buildings in Frontenac County. Representing the cooperative (named for its Queen Street location in Toronto), Ian Robery told Council his organization was looking to get a foothold in Frontenac County and sees the Olden Garage as a potential first step. “Our focus is on renting rooftops on municipal, school board and hospital

buildings in order to install solar panels for the Feed-In-Tariff program,” he said. Robery said the cooperative provides a way for smaller investors to take advantage of Ontario Power Generation’s solar initiatives by pooling resources and sharing the profits. He said initially, cooperative projects weren’t a priority for Ontario Power but now they seem to be favouring them. Currently, the FIT program pays $0.53.9/kwh for rooftop solar installations of 100-500 kwh in size. He said they already have similar installations in Guelph and Timiskaming. The letter of intent said

Mountain Grove Library building deemed safe but work needed By Craig Bakay Reporter

building condition. “Although the visible portions of structural elements would not meet current Building Code requirements, the structure itself is in a reasonable state of repair and there are no visible structural elements that could indicate an immediate need for repair,� he said. There are three heating systems in the building, one of which is not used, and two older oil furnaces, he said. Mayor Janet Gutowski said that while the cost of upgrading the building might preclude its remaining in the Township inventory at some time in the future, for now, it was business as usual. “We want to reassure staff working there and the visiting public that the building is safe,� Gutowski said. “Please use the Mountain Grove Library.�

EMC News – The Mountain Grove Library building is essentially ‘safe’ but the former school, township office and fire hall still needs work to bring it up to current standards and codes, chief building official Jeremy Neven told Central Frontenac Council at its regular meeting last week in Sharbot Lake. “There are breaker panels (as opposed to fuse boxes) and the building is generally sound and stable but the wheelchair ramp and a lot of things inside are not up to current standards,� Neven said. “(But) we did not look at the septic system, which could get expensive to replace. “(And) particular investment would need to be made in damp-proofing the basement, insulating walls

and attics and upgrading heating systems.� In his report, Neven said previous reviews of the building include a mould assessment done in 2010 that indicated there was no mould growth present but there was minor water damage in the plaster ceiling (since repaired) and an asbestos assessment that indicated several areas containing asbestos in the building. “Removal of these asbestos-containing materials has not been done (but) removal is only required in the event of construction or demolition,� he said. Neven said that efflorescence still exists on the foundation walls that was likely due to water leakage through minor cracks in the foundation and around window wells but “the cracks are minor in nature and do not indicate an unsafe

Committee looking for public input on naming new Sharbot Lake school EMC News – The Limestone District School Board’s 15-member school naming sub-committee for the new K-12 school in Sharbot Lake has narrowed the options to six (or nine as there are three with variations) and is once again seeking public input before making the final selection. The six choices are: 1. Granite Ridge District School or Granite Ridge School 2. Lakeview District School 3. Lakeside District School or Lakeside Education Centre 4. Waterstone District School 5. Sharbot Lake District School or Sharbot Lake Education Centre 6. Hillcrest District School The naming sub-committee will present its options to the integration committee by mid-January,

which will make a recommendation to be sent to the Board trustees for a final decision. In a press release last week, the LDSB said: “following a request for submissions in October, more than 130 suggestions and other input were received by the naming sub-committee. Interested community members and area schools are again being asked to assist the integration committee and the Board in the final deliberations to choose the school’s name.” The release said that “although the selection process will not be based on a vote, the committee would like to be able to report which options drew broadest support.” The committee said that from the many suggestions, “by far the most common thread was the wish to convey the beauty of the natural geography unique to the area and that concept is apparent in the options se-

lected.” Community members and area schools are invited to select the one option they prefer and submit it to Madeliene Tarasick, chair, school naming subcommittee, via email, mail or in person at one of the Sharbot Lake area schools. Mail: 2130 Wagarville Rd., Parham, ON K0H 2K0. Email: tarasick@frontenac. net.

HI resident Terry Botten reminded council they need also to revisit commercial vehicles, motorcycles, including sticker and pricing policies. A further discussion came up initiated by Councillor Springgay regarding bicycle unloading off the ferry at Wolfe Islandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dawson Point winter dock and the dangers that arise with cyclists leaving the ferry first in the dark and the safety issues that result as automobiles must pass the bicycles on the very dark narrow road. (There have been complaints). The proposed resolution asking MTO to establish a policy of unloading the cyclists was lost. Council will be looking for input from cyclists. Public notices have already been posted indicating that the issue will be on the agenda of the January 14th council meeting on Wolfe Island. While a resolution to a establish a Municipal Employee Policy Manual, a

first for the township, was lost because certain areas of the manual have to be further clarified and added to, Deputy Mayor Jones wanted it made perfectly clear that the day a bylaw IS passed that any/all previous policies are repealed . Deputy Mayor Jones had concerns about a budget over expediture that had not come before council although controls have been put in place.â&#x20AC;? I believe there is a weakness. However rationalized, this expenditure, well over budget, never came before us..,â&#x20AC;? he said. Councillor Springgay referred to the situation as â&#x20AC;&#x153;communications issueâ&#x20AC;?.. that need not have happened. Councillor Grant who was adamant that the desire expressed by the WI community for a Seniors residence not get lost simply because the Frontenac County report seems to focus on Sharbot Lake. He said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;we cannot let it drop.â&#x20AC;? Music Fest organizers are expected for a meeting early in the new year. FYI: Budget meetings are now underway with further meetings in early December and in January when, according to Mayor Doyle, the municipality hopes to finalize their household target for maxi-

mum tax increase, (an approach used by Kingston) â&#x20AC;&#x153;We talked about this concept, and said we should pick a number some place between 2 and 4 %. Then we know what we can afford to do, as we will have our total township revenue.â&#x20AC;? Council meets next: Mon. Dec. 10th , Howe Island at 6:30 pm

EMC News- The â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Christmas Elvesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on Wolfe Island have been busy decorating Marysville in time for the Santa Claus Parade and Christmas. Not to be outdone, Islanders Janice Frost and Doris Eves joined Catherine Crowe (acting postmaster) in decorating the islandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rural Post Office for the Holiday Season.. The Post Office is recognized as one of, (maybe) the busiest of the smaller offices in the region. Not surprising really. Anything available at the Kingston Post Office is available on the island. It is a lovely size, accessible , brightly painted and full of light. It has a well controlled bulletin board and most importantly, wonderful staff including those who come in to sort the rural mail, and deliver it, those who fill the lock and key boxes, serve at the counter and those deliver the mail to the city for the rest of its journey. But the Post Office is even more than that.. Here I go again rememberingâ&#x20AC;Ś. this time about the late Clifton Fargo who provided much sage (kind and wise) advice following our decision to live

Clifton said. And he was right. The Post Office as well as fulfilling all postal needs, including gift purchases (unique stamps etc), has provided many happy/sad moments to stay in touch with people locally, to hear whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on, offered opportunities for lively discussion, and of course to meet new residents .

¸ Keep candles in a sturdy holder away from children, pets and combustible materials. Blow them out before leaving the room. ¸ Alcohol and fire are a dangerous mix. Keep a close eye on anyone attempting to cook or smoke while under the influence of alcohol. ¸ Encourage smokers to smoke outside. Check for cigarette butts between sofa and chair cushions before going to bed. ¸ Install smoke alarms on every storey and outside sleeping areas. For added protection, install a smoke alarm in each bedroom. Test smoke alarms monthly and change the batteries at least once per year.

Fact

Many fire deaths are caused by people attempting to cook or smoke while under the influence of alcohol. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more to responsible drinking than taking cab. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put yourself - or your family - at risk of fire.

Fire deaths traditionally rise over the holiday season.

EMC - Your Community Newspaper

Here are three (of many) reasons revisions to safe properties are a bad idea Craig Comment By Craig Bakay editorial@theheritageemc.ca

EMC Editorial â&#x20AC;&#x201D; There is so much wrong with Central Frontenacâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposed safe properties bylaw that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difficult to know where to begin. Notwithstanding the fact that at the last Council meeting what was on the table was essentially still the old property standards proposal that half of the respondents to the public input exercise flat out rejected and another 25 per cent said only if it gets toned down to deal with just safety issues, what makes long grass unsafe is still just as unclear

as it was when this thing first came up. But here are three points that either havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been addressed so far or havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been stressed enough. The bylaw is extremely unlikely to have the desired effects. Proponents of restrictive property bylaws like to claim theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll attract new residents and more importantly businesses because everything will be so neat and orderly. Bancroft, whose bylaw was trumpeted as an example to follow, sure is an economic going-concern, now isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it? In fact, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more than likely to have the exact opposite effect given that the best shot rural communities have in attracting business is with artistic/artisan types and/or backto-the-earth farming types and specialty farms/ranches. As a general rule, these people tend to be the more free-spirited among us and

bylaws telling them what they â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;mustâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; do on their own land arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t likely to be a big attraction. You might have more luck telling them that everybody here has to dress exactly the same. There will be hard feelings, and damaged people Make no mistake, to some people, this sort of bylaw is just the ticket to get back at their neighbours, often for imagined, rather than actual, slights. Give somebody a hammer and everything looks like a nail. And has anybody thought of the damage being insulted and persecuted can do to someone, especially someone of limited means? When you have a fat government or school board pension, keeping up with cosmetic repairs may be second nature. But if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a choice between painting the fence and a cord of wood in the winter. . .that alone is

stressful enough and the last thing some people need compounding their troubles is the possibility of being persecuted and fined if they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do something they simply canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to make accusations if there are no potential repercussions. For some reason, proponents of this bylaw seem to think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good idea to let people make their complaints anonymously, having staff make the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;actualâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; complaint to be prosecuted. The thing is, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it a fundamental component of contemporary democratic law that a person has a fundamental right to confront his or her accuser? And for that matter, if a judge tells the staff member to name the original complainant, they have to tell. This isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the same thing as attorney-client privilege or the sanctity of the confessional.

In Our Opinion

First Nations deserve better from Canada EMC Editorial â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Last weekend, the Canadian media reported that Kashechewan First Nation, a Cree community located near James Bay in northern Ontario, had declared a state of emergency the week before. The news was shocking for two reasons: first, because of the unacceptable conditions that prompted the declaration; and second, because it was the first the general public was hearing of the situation. According to the CBC, the community raised the red flag â&#x20AC;&#x153;because it was running out of fuel and because 21 houses were not fit to face winter,â&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;the federal government stepped in with help, just in the nick of time.â&#x20AC;? The broadcaster reported that several remote northern Ontario communities are in desperate need of fuel. The situation calls to mind that of neighbouring community Attawapiskat, which declared a state of emergency in October 2011 because of poor housing conditions and infrastructure. That crisis also made national headlines. We often talk about how fortunate â&#x20AC;&#x153;weâ&#x20AC;? are to live in Canada and have so much. How can it be, then, that fellow Canadians live in such conditions? And how is it that when they need us to rally around them, when they are in a state of emergency, we only first hear about it days later? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sad to think that this has become the new â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or unfortunately, not so new â&#x20AC;&#x201C; normal. That rather than demand consistent and meaningful aid for all Canadians in need, we allow conditions to deteriorate until a state of emergency is necessary. Everyone has a role to play in ensuring that all Canadians have access to safe housing and solid infrastructure. The media must do a better job of communicating about these crises in a timely fashion, individuals must educate themselves and be aware that not all Canadians are as fortunate as they should be, and our government must adequately help these vulnerable communities rather than come up with Band-aid solutions when a crisis occurs. It seems naive to talk about how fortunate â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canadiansâ&#x20AC;? are when such a significant portion of the population lives in conditions many of us could not begin to imagine. Interestingly, the CBC also noted that â&#x20AC;&#x153;according to the declarations, [Kashechewan] had asked Ottawa for help beforehand, but to no avail.â&#x20AC;? This should shock and anger us into action. If it does not, we have a much larger state of emergency on our hands.

Construction season comes to a close in Central Frontenac By Craig Bakay Reporter

EMC News – Construction has “pretty much wrapped up for the year,” Public Works Manager Mike Richardson told Central Frontenac Council at its regular meeting last week in Sharbot Lake. “The crews have been working on the trucks to get them ready for the winter, grading and cold patching when it was warm enough,” he said. “John Deere phoned to see if we wanted to try out a new model of grader and although it’s not a good time to use one because the roads are mostly frozen, we are getting the opportunity to check it out at the Hinchinbrooke site.” Richardson said they’ve tried out a new tire removal company, Clarence Creek Recycling, which has picked up all tires,

including the ones with rims. “Some of these tires that the other company would not remove have been there for well over 10 years,” Richardson said. “The waste sites have also done a large cleanup and the bins at Olden have been moved back to their winter locations to make it easier for the snow plows.” ••• A proposal to include a minimum building size of 900 square feet in the Zoning Bylaw update has been scrapped. Township planner Glenn Tunnock told Council at its regular meeting last week in Sharbot Lake that such clauses are common in comprehensive zoning bylaws and “there have been few, if any, applications for buildings smaller than that for a number of years so it

would not likely hinder any development.” But Mayor Janet Gutowski had reservations, concerned that it may constitute a “barrier to affordable housing” and referenced Frontenac County Council’s recent meeting citing a lack of affordable housing, especially for seniors, in the area. Coun. Norm Guntensperger said he was concerned it could also lead to people building without permits, a legitimate threat considering the Township has recently identified 217 properties with unregistered buildings on them through aerial photography. “If we tighten up too much, people will hide,” he said. The Zoning Bylaw is scheduled to be presented to the public some time in December.

EMC - Your Community Newspaper

Enamored by books columnist editorial@theheritageemc.ca

EMC Lifestyle – It’s fitting that Deb Savoy’s email address starts with thebooklady@. She surrounds herself with books. They’re in her blood. There might even be some little book marker strand hanging out somewhere in her DNA. Born in Montreal, when she was 15 her family moved to Ottawa. About 14 years ago, with a four year old daughter, Alexis, in tow, she moved to Gananoque. Savoy wanted to raise her daughter in a small town. Alexis is now 18 and attending university in Ottawa. An aesthetician by trade, Savoy succumbed to her family’s vocational calling. Her parents operated Book Market outlets around Ontario for decades. In March 2000, Savoy opened All About Books along Gananoque’s main drag. When her inventory reached 50,000 books, she moved to a larger location. She’s now located at 126 King Street East. She figures her current stock comprises more than 100,000 books in at least 25 categories, including a large children’s section. She is always

She hopes to finish the book within the next year. In any time she has left over, she likes to paint. Keeping a shop with 100,000 books in order is no small task. “It’s an incredible amount of work,” said Savoy. “Truly the people and the product are what keep me going. I love what I do. It has a lot to do with the people. Many have made a visit to the shop a ritual in their lives. It’s more than a bookstore. It’s a gathering place.” I first met Deb about five years ago, not long after she’d opened her larger store. That was before the days of Nook, Kobo and other e-readers. “The book industry is never going away,” she said. “I don’t care where you get books, as long as you’re reading. Some shops close when people retire or don’t put the effort in. The day will come when I retire, but I’ve got quite a few years left in me.” She explained that she doesn’t fear the Internet or electronic books. “If you don’t constantly give people what they want, create a fresh environment and make the place comfortable, you’re not going to do well. I begrudge anyone who says bookstores close because of the economy. I put great effort into the environment and making everyone feel welcome. I don’t think a day goes by that friends and customers don’t come in just to chat. There’s always laughter in

“It started in October with Mrs. West from GISS,” she said. She gives gift certificates to readers who show initiative and write about their choice on the group’s Facebook page. She’s pleased with the artistic and commercial growth she sees in Gananoque. “This town is becoming a really cool little niche of interesting shops,” she said. She’s not kidding. In her block alone, there are several shops worth exploring. “It’s a great place to visit,” she said. “Gananoque’s a great day trip.” In Savoy’s shop, there’s a real mellow, yet exciting atmosphere. “Everybody’s sort of laid back,” she said. “They’re

easygoing and come in and sit down.” Her own personality, attitude and the environment she’s created have a lot to do with that. She’s created more than just a book shop. It’s more like the little independent “The Shop Around the Corner” run by Kathleen Kelly (Meg Ryan) in You’ve Got Mail. One difference: Savoy has no plans to close her shop. If you’d like to see Debra Savoy in action, she’s going to be reading Christmas stories at All About Books on December 8 between noon and 1 p.m. To contact Debra Savoy, thebooklady@aabooks.ca, or call her shop at 613-381-9105.

here.” Her own tastes in literature tend toward Canadian authors. She particularly likes Lawrence Hill’s The Book of Negroes, which was published as Someone Knows My Name in the US, Australia and New Zealand. “That one really put Canadian writers on the map,” she said. “I love Canadian fiction. Canadian writers are very real without being over the top.” She said that one of her alltime favourite Canadian books is The Nine Lives of Charlotte Taylor, about the first pioneer woman in Canada. Savoy loves her Gananoque community. Her shop sponsors a reading initiative at Gananoque Intermediate and Secondary School. It’s called For the Love of Reading.

changing and improving her shop and services. She hopes to be able to take online orders in the near future. She’d like to help customers locate hard-tofind books they’re searching for. Her shop, called All About Books Internet Café, is inviting and friendly. She sells fair trade organic tea and coffee and says she’s be introducing organic treats in the new year. There are nice comfy chairs and couches in the bookstore. Wireless access is a convenient touch. “Read, surf and java,” said Savoy. “I love the idea of sitting down to read with a coffee or tea in hand, regardless of where you are.” Savoy is trying to meet the needs of locals and visitors. She explained that the main method of communication for folks who travel the St. Lawrence by boat is email. “They are a large part of the community during tourist season,” she said. “Being a high traffic tourist town, every second person comes in an asks where they can hook up to the Internet.” Her motto for her shop is apt: The Thousand Islands greatest adventure in literature. She says her children’s section is the Disneyland of literature for kids. Not content to read books, Savoy’s also writing one. “I have an autistic sister,” she said. “I’ve taken care of her for the past three years. I’m inspired to write her story.”

The 15-member naming sub-committee, after much deliberation and consideration of many factors, has now narrowed the list to the following options. The naming sub-committee again invites input from interested community members and schools to assist the integration committee and the Board of Trustees in the final deliberations to choose the school’s name. While the selection process will not be based on a vote, the committee would like to be able to report which options drew broadest support. From the many suggestions, by far the most common thread was the wish to convey the beauty of the natural geography unique to the area and that concept is apparent in the options selected. 1. Granite Ridge District School or Granite Ridge School Granite is the predominant rock formation in the area and the school will be situated at the base of a ridge. Conveys strength and beauty. 2. Lakeview District School Incorporates the word “lake” which is most predominant geographical feature in the area. Upon entering the village, and at the top of the hill overlooking the school, one can admire the beautiful view of the lake. This was a name suggested by many individuals independently. 3. Lakeside District School or Lakeside Education Centre Incorporates the word “lake” which is most predominant geographical feature in the area. Proximity to Sharbot Lake. 4. Waterstone District School “Spectacular lakes and waterways, and stunning granite outcroppings” is the descriptor provided by the individual who offered this suggestion. 5. Sharbot Lake District School or Sharbot Lake Education Centre Continuity of generations of students and staff at SLHS since 1948; preserves historical origin of Sharbot Lake founder, Frances Sharbot. School located in Sharbot Lake. Name submitted by many individuals independently. 6. Hillcrest District School Upon entering Sharbot Lake, one is at the crest of the hill overlooking both the school and the village.

My car is nothing special but it means everything to me. “At age 16, I was determined to buy a Pontiac GTO. I found a ’69 (if memory serves) with a 455 in it. My mother had to test drive it because I only had my beginners license. She could not touch the gas without snapping everyone’s head back. I took a buddy with me for the test drive. We were hooting and laughing like idiots. After the test drive, I told my mom I was buying it. She said: “Like hell you are! You’ll kill yourself in this car!” Since Mom and Dad were co-signing the loan, I had no choice. “A few weeks later, my parents told me that they found a 1977 Pontiac LeMans Sport Coupe.

high tech-battery minder/ charger that will keep the battery at full strength without overcharging it. (Disconnecting the battery may lead to radio, vehicle security system, and other on-board computer problems and leaving it connected for three months of no use may discharge it). You can have a treatment applied to the brake surfaces (rotors and drums) to avoid rust build up and excessive noise and vibration from the brakes when you first take the vehicle out for a drive. You can mount the vehicle on jack stands to avoid stressing suspension components. You can treat the fuel with stabilizer and you can fog the engine cylinders with oil, etc, etc, etc. You can avoid all of this all of this, if you can locate a trusted family member or friend, who can drop by monthly to start the car, and take it for a short run (15-20 km) that fully warms up the engine and works the suspension, brakes, and steering. I can’t emphasize the phrase ‘trusted friend’ enough. It will be your

insurance on the line while this vehicle is out on the road and having unsupervised access to a fairly new Toyota will be a great temptation to a lot of people. Whether or not you choose the storage or trusted friend option, treating the vehicle with some critterproofing is advised. Get some aromatic natural peppermint oil from your local health or natural food store, mix it 1 to 10 with warm water and pour it in a hand-spray bottle. Spray under the hood (don’t soak things, just a light coating) and under the dash and seats (test an area of the carpet to avoid stains), and in the trunk. This will keep mice, squirrels, and chipmunks, etc. from making nests in your Corolla. “Dear Mr. Turner, I have a 2009 PT Cruiser and when I bought it last year the tires were continually going flat. The mechanic said they were having trouble with these cars because of the tire sensors so I had them removed and had no more trouble with tire defla-

tion. After reading your recent column I wonder if it will have any effect on the traction-control. Also, does it affect gas mileage? My already poor gas mileage of 10 L/100 km has gone down to 10.3 L/100 km. I’d be grateful for any advice.” Thank you, Ken Your PT Cruiser’s tire pressure sensors were only used to provide a low pressure warning and are not used by any other system on the vehicle including the traction control. An aftermarket parts company, Dorman, now makes sensors for this car that are substantially cheaper than the original equipment parts. They are available from most auto parts stores and retail for around $64 each. The EPA fuel ratings from the US peg your PT Cruiser at 11.2 L/100 km when you convert the combined city/hwy rating of 21 mpg (US gallon) to our metric system. I know that NRCan of the Canadian gov-

ernment rated this car at 9.55 L/100 km city/hwy combined, but the EPA has proven to have much more accurate tests and the word is that NRCan will be changing their methods of calculations in the future. So your figure of 10.3 is still pretty good.

Moroniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Celebrating 25th Anniversary in Gananoque sion of the 80s, people had come out to eat, drink and enjoy each othersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; company. But with jobs disappearing, incomes vanished. And disposable income ceased to exist. Giannakouras thought back to his childhood in Greece. Communities were small and strong, with families joining together to become stronger by association. They grew their own fruits and vegetables in the friendly Mediterranean climate, raised their own meat, produced their own milk and eggs. Everyone helped each other, and the whole community benefitted. So he has decided to share that with Gananoque. In celebration of 25 years at 155 King Street East, he is rolling back prices and bringing in whole meals for good old fashioned prices. Winner of the 2003 â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tourism & Hospitality Awardâ&#x20AC;? and specializing in Italian, Greek and Canadian cuisine, Moroniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offers fine dining in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The entire family will feel welcome at any time to delight in anything from traditional burgers and fries, up through spaghetti carbonara, souvlaki dinners to the best pizza in town. Nothing is too good for a Moroniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s customer, and Giannakouras and his entire staff will go out of their way to make you feel at home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want everyone to have a good time, to share in our success,â&#x20AC;? says Giannakouras. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The whole town is invited to come try our new menu and new prices. We want to give something back to everyone, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re rolling our prices back to celebrate for a month or two.â&#x20AC;? There will be dinners for under $10 as part of this grand event, and lunches for under $7. The three course meal is returning, with a soup or salad, entrĂŠe, and dessert. Beverages will be included, and all for a single price.

Moroniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mediterranean Family Ristorante invites everyone to come in and celebrate their 25th anniversary with them at 155 King Street East in Gananoque. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be more than happy to have you celebrate your special occasions with us,â&#x20AC;? says Giannakouras. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Birthdays, anniversaries, everything with family. We need to bring back the old traditions, have everyone come out and have a good time.â&#x20AC;? Pizzaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s will be reduced in price, as will the fish and chips. Everything will be more affordable than itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been in years. Moroniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is open every day from 7:00 a.m. until midnight, and Fridays and Saturdays until 1:00 a.m. serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, and the service is unsurpassed. Staff at Moroniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s come for a job, and stay on to become members of this great community â&#x20AC;&#x153;familyâ&#x20AC;?.

After a successful quarter century in Gananoque, businessman Nick Giannakouras, owner of Moroniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mediterranean Family Ristorante, has decided itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to celebrate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love Gananoque,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone here is my family.â&#x20AC;? Coming originally from Greece, Giannakouras had grown up with a tradition of honour in family and hard work. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been in business in Canada for 45 years, but found that opportunity was shining in Gananoque. When the Moroniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s building and business became available in 1987, he purchased them and moved in with his family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gananoqueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a wonderful town,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lots of people, lots of tourists, you get to see different faces and talk to different people. Everything was good until the factories closed and people started to struggle.â&#x20AC;? This saddened him. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t right that people could no longer afford to go out and have a good time in their own community. Even in the height of the reces-

EMC Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Anything Goes, with Cole Porter music and lyrics, first opened on Broadway in 1934 at the Neil Simon Theatre, then known as the Alvin. You have a chance to see the popular musical in Kingston at Regiopolis-Notre Dame Catholic High School, where the curtain rises at 7 p.m. from Wednesday, December 12 to Saturday, December 15.

Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a 2 p.m. Saturday show. Regiopolis-Notre Dame Catholic High School has a strong drama program under the direction of Steve Powell. Add Juno/MusiCounts award-winning Hugh Johnstonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s musical direction and you have a recipe for performances far above standard high school fare. Regi consistently produces challenging shows, both in acting skill requirements as well as choreography and staging. Think of some of their past works like Les MisĂŠrables and Fiddler on the Roof. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Anything Goes is no exception. The story features madcap action on the high seas. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s big-time Broadway fun. Billy Crocker (Will

some of the heavier things weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done. We thought weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d do a comedy. We also try to pick different composers. We hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t done Cole Porter before.â&#x20AC;? Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re producing the 1987 version. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the original, the pit was quite orchestral,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The newer version is very jazzy, but that presents its own problems. The music was written for New York City professional musicians. Having said that, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a good group. There are a couple of professional musicians in the band. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve worked hard for a couple of months.â&#x20AC;? The 1987 revival starred one of my favourite Broadway actors, Patti Lupone, as Reno Sweeney. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quite

dents who come from all grades. Another 50 students are busy behind the scenes in backstage and orchestral work. I always keep a focus on what Steve Powell and Hugh Johnston are up to. For years, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve put together shows that are must-see performances (same goes for Bayridge Secondary Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mike Bullett). For example, what high school teacher in his or her right mind would take on South Pacific or Les Mis, and then succeed? The answer: Steve Powell and Hugh Johnston. Johnston noted that picking a show gets more difficult each year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done shows like Les Mis,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted some lightness to contrast

Gouett) stows away aboard an ocean liner heading to New York City from London. Billy is in love with heiress Hope Harcourt (Sammy Johnston). Lauren Knight plays Evangeline Harcourt, Hopeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overbearing mother. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a catch. Hope is already engaged to Lord Evelyn Oakleigh (Gabe Laplante-Brady). A nightclub singer, Reno Sweeney (Daniella Richards), and Moonface Martin (Keaton Ryan), help Billy. Keep your eyes on Hailey Hill, who plays Moonfaceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s girlfriend, Erma. After seeing her in Hairspray, I featured Hailey in an EnchantĂŠ column. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll hear great Broadway tunes like â&#x20AC;&#x153;I Get a Kick Out of You,â&#x20AC;? and the eponymous â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anything Goes.â&#x20AC;? The cast includes 50 stu-

an act to follow, but I think Daniella (Dani) Richards will shine in the role. And Dani said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s excited that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get to do some tap dancing. When Dani Richards is on stage, she owns it. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no hesitation in her work. She plays the outrageous moments as well as the subtle ones with finesse. And sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be there with Hailey Hill. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to imagine that 17year-olds could be seasoned veterans of the stage, but Hailey told me that she and Dani have each worked in 20 shows, many of them together. Double check the data. Indeed, 20. Their first acting experience together was in Seussical, when they were ten years old. See Musical page 18

news MUSICAL From page 17

Hugh Johnston saw that first show, so he’s seen these two actors develop and grow. “You don’t get these kind of seasoned actors too often,” he said. “They research their parts. Some kids depend on you to show them everything. Hailey and Dani know what to do. They do it all, which is what you would get in semi-pro theatre. In high school, we often get first-time actors and chorus members.” Hailey Hill explained her approach. “I get into a role by doing a ton of research,” she said. “Using script, my imagination and the wonderful thing that is YouTube, I figure out how my character walks, talks and acts in different situations. For me,

EMC - Your Community Newspaper to catch a performance of Anything Goes on its North American tour. She said she also watched Sutton Foster play the role in every YouTube video she could find. Foster won the Tony Award for her role as Reno Sweeney in the most recent Broadway revival of the show in 2011. Talented, but less experienced, Will Gouett is in his first starring role. From what I’ve seen in rehearsal, he looks natural and comfortable on stage. In fact, he’s perfect for the role of Billy Crocker. In drama class, the theatre bug awakened in him and he auditioned for Anything Goes. He leads a busy life. In addition to his theatrical work, Gouett loves basketball and he plays throughout the year. He’s also taken piano lessons since the age of five. He still trains with the same teacher. “He’s not afraid to get up and

getting into character is more like a fun kind of homework.” Working with first-time actors hasn’t distracted her. “My favourite thing about the cast is how fresh it is,” she said. “We lost so many talented leads last year due to graduation, so we were all very worried what state the cast list would be in when it came time to put on Anything Goes. But, wow, did we manage to get an amazing cast this year.” She said she was surprised by newcomer, Will Gouett. “I didn’t know what to expect, but he has completely blown me away with what he can do and I have no doubt this musical will be a success.” As an example of how hard these young actors work and how seriously they take their productions, after landing the role of Reno Sweeney, Dani travelled to Ohio

put on a performance,” said Hugh Johnston. “During auditions, when he and Dani were reading lines, he was very natural. He has a big role in the play. Vocally, he’s strong, too. He’s a very good musician.” “My peers really were the ones who encouraged me to audition,” said Will. “I’ve really found a passion for theatre. Anything Goes is absolutely hilarious. The music by Cole Porter is timeless.” Dani Richards agrees. “I absolutely adore Anything Goes,” she said. “The characters

are all so different. I love the jazzy, 1920 idea of it. I just love playing this sassy, very sassy, nightclub singer, Reno.” She hopes to attend the Sheridan College musical theatre program next year. “If this plan fails, I want to pack up and move to New York City to live my dreams in the City of Aspiration.” Daniella Richards strikes me as having a success gene in her DNA. With her triple threat (acting, singing, dancing) talent, she’s got a great future ahead of her in theatre.

INTERNET, WE GIVE YOU MORE!

Despite the comedic tone to Anything Goes, Johnston said there’s an underlying positive message. “This show fits today’s antibullying theme,” he said. “We accept people for who they are and that’s certainly the sense with Anything Goes.” This year’s Regi production of Anything Goes has success written all over it. Tickets for Anything Goes are available at the Regiopolis-Notre Dame office at 130 Russell Street in Kingston; 613-545-1902.

Turkey Fair day was either a make or break for family By Mary Cook

EMC Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Turkey Fair day. Once a year, farmers from far and wide converged on the town of Renfrew for what they all hoped would be a prosperous day. Ideally, all the fowl would be sold, and that would mean a brighter Christmas at a time when money was as scarce as hensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; teeth. Of course it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t only turkeys that were taken into town: geese, eggs, butter, fresh cream, and always on our big flat-bottomed sleigh would be Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sticky buns, which were usually the first to be sold. Turkey Fair day was also on a Saturday, so there were many hands to help with getting everything loaded on the sleigh, preparing a hearty lunch and making sure everyone had gone to the outhouse at the last minute, and was well wrapped up for the long, freezing day ahead. There was no sleeping in on Turkey Fair day. We were roused before dawn, because Father wanted to claim a good spot on the main street. Sales depended on where you parked the sleigh. Too

to buy anything, because no one ever came up to us to offer help. That suited us just fine. By the time noon hour rolled around, we were ready for lunch, and ready to head over to the CPR station to go to the bathroom. I never saw Mother or Father eat. And I have no idea if they did, but we five kids were each handed a brown paper bag (saved of course from a purchase at Briscoeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s General Store) just as the town clock struck the noon hour. Through the generosity of the Chinese Restaurant, we were allowed to eat our lunch in one of the booths inside where it was warm. Good people, Mother called them. After we had eaten our plain jelly sandwich, we were more than ready to visit the station to use its facility. This was the one point in the day I dreaded. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure it was my imagination, but I always thought the station master didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t approve of us farm children coming in just to use the bathroom. He wore a cap with a green celluloid piece in the front, and he peered out from under it, and scowled. We tried to be as quiet as possible, and we stomped the snow off our feet when we went in, so as not to leave a wet mark on the floor. The whole place was painted a sickly green, and smelled of

strong disinfectant. Audrey and I used the bathroom as quickly as possible, so that we could head back to the main street. My sister always went to the counter and said thank you, but the station agent never raised his head. That afternoon, Turkey Fair day was coming to an end. I was too scared to ask Mother if everything she had brought in on the sleigh had sold. But I could usually tell from the look on her face. Everett would be sent to bring the horses from the drive shed, and Father would

hitch them up to the sleigh, and we would pile onto the blankets, which had been laid out over a straw bed. They would be covered with white flour bag sheets at the start of the day so that everything offered for sale would look its best and look meticulously clean. Audrey would fold up the sheets. With Mother and Father on the one seat on the sleigh, and we five crowded onto the bed, we would head out for Northcote. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take long for the sun to fade, and by the

time we reached the Northcote Side Road the daylight would be gone. Father would light a lantern and hang it on the post at the front of the sleigh. Only then would Mother tell us what kind of day it had been. If it was a good one, we would sing all the way home. If things hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t gone as well as expected, we were all very quiet. But whatever was realized at Turkey Fair day, it was enough to tide us over for another spellâ&#x20AC;Ś and Mother would say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more than we had yesterday.â&#x20AC;?

Mary Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memories

far down Raglan, in either direction, meant you would be lucky to get rid of everything you had brought in from Northcote. The people who lived in town werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t about to walk beyond the main business core. Once we claimed our spot, Father would unhitch the team and walk it down to the drive shed at the south end of town, and we were ready for business. The stores opened early that day, which delighted my sister Audrey and me, because we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to hang around the sleighâ&#x20AC;Ś we wanted to start at one end of the street, and work our way through every store. We went into stores we would never dream of entering any other time. Who could afford a store like Frasers? Just the rich people of Renfrew, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s who. So Audrey and I would go in. The store always smelled of lemons for some reason, and of the newness of clothes, and there was always a big bowl of peppermints on the counter by each register. These candies were little round discs, dusty with peppermint powder. My sister and I always grabbed one each after we had circled the store looking at the beautiful clothes. At the â&#x20AC;&#x153;rich peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stores,â&#x20AC;? as Audrey and I called them, they seemed to know we werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t there

Legion invites everyone to celebrate Second World War Veteran’s 100th birthday Correspondent

EMC Events - The Royal Canadian Legion Colonel Russel H. Britton Branch 92 on King Street East in Gananoque is making an open invitation to all people in the area to come out and participate in Second World War veteran Don Harding’s 100th birthday celebration on Dec. 13 from 4 – 6 p.m. Born on Dec. 13, 1912, Harding was a typical Canadian kid. He and his younger brother, Jack, did everything healthy red blooded boys would do and, when the war broke out, they paid close

attention. On May 18, 1942, at the height of the Battle of the Atlantic, they hurried down to enlist in the Navy. By the end of the war, Don was a naval Lieutenant and the captain of HMCS Melville. A Bangor class minesweeper, she was 162 feet long, 28 feet wide, with a draft of 8.3 feet and a displacement of 592 tonnes. Her compliment consisted of six officers and 77 crew. “The Allies were losing the war at sea and in October and November 1942 they were losing an average of three ships a day, but innovations slowly began to assist,” said Bill Besweth-

erick of the Legion. “The British began to break the German naval code, radar improved, long-range aircraft patrolled the entire convoy route, escort aircraft carriers began escorting convoys, and the Allied ship-building caught up to losses.” The Melville was named after Melville, Saskatchewan, one of 128 such craft built for the Allied navies. A relatively small vessel, quarters were tight and not many comforts were available for the men who served on her. Although the minesweepers were not designed to cross the Atlantic, brother Jack also served on one at the Normandy invasion. The ship only travelled at 16 knots (a rate of about 17 miles per hour), so the trip across would have been very wearing on those aboard. When it was realized in Canada that the Germans weren’t laying down a lot of mines, the minesweepers were assigned to escort convoys in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. During this time,

a submarine managed to sink a ferry to Newfoundland, resulting in the deaths of more than 100 people. Don’s service was mainly in the “Atlantic Triangle”. His job was to escort the convoys from Halifax, a few hundred miles east of Newfoundland, and assist them as they travelled to Boston or New York City. At the end of the war, both brothers returned to Gananoque, where they joined the Legion in 1945. John Matheson, known as the father of the Canadian flag, is the only person still living to have served longer with the branch, having joined in 1944.

Holiday fare serves up surprising superheroes BY MARK HASKINS

MOVIE: Rise of the Guardians STARRING: Chris Pine, Canada Alec Baldwin, Jack BY JOHN TUCKER Hugh Jackman, Isla Fisher and Jude Law DIRECTOR: Peter Ramsey RATING: G EMC Entertainment - Rise of the Guardians turned out to be one heck of a superhero film. Who knew? An ancient enemy threatens to turn the dreams of children into nightmares. He’ll steal hope and wonder, and cloak the world in darkness. His name is Pitch Black (Jude Law), but most fear him as the Boogeyman. Fortunately there are guardians who protect the

moments, which combined with the stunning animation, makes Rise of the Guardians a must-see film. Alec Baldwin is the voice of the larger than life, sword wielding, tattooed, Russian warrior that is Santa Claus. It’s a great character and Baldwin is awesome. The Easter Bunny, with his magic boomerangs, is nature’s fierce defender. There’s no one better to voice the six-foot Australian bunny than Hugh Jackman. The Tooth Fairy is part human and part hummingbird and all fairy. She’s full of energy, and Isla Fisher really helps bring her to life. Though he doesn’t have a voice I should also mention the Sandman. He appears as a kind-hearted purveyor of dreams who communicates through his

sand creations, but when the fight is on, well let’s just say you don’t want to mess with the Sandman. As villains go the Boogeyman is as classic as they get. He’s everything we fear about the dark.

Like all true megalomaniacs intent on taking over the world, Jude Law steals the show. Jack struggles with who he is, but deep down he’s a born hero. Chris Pine is perfect as the immortal

trickster of ice and snow. Rise of the Guardians may be a superhero/holiday adventure, but mostly it’s just good fun. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

My Take

children of the world. All four, Santa Claus (Alec Baldwin), the Easter Bunny (Hugh Jackman), the Tooth Fairy (Isla Fisher) and the Sandman, have come together to fight Pitch. Each immortal has special powers, but even they may not be enough. Fortunately a new guardian has been chosen; Jack Frost (Chris Pine). Jack is another immortal with powers over ice, cold and wind. He’s a jokester and a trickster. He’s the one who brings snow days to children, and starts snowball fights. He’s not a guardian, but if Jack is to have any hope of defeating Pitch he’ll have to discover the hero he was always meant to be. Imagine if Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, the Sandman and Jack Frost were part of The Avengers, and you’ll have a pretty good idea what Rise of the Guardians is like. It’s a fantastic adventure of good versus evil in which a group of immortals with amazing powers battle a terrifying evil. There’s a holiday theme, but it’s basically a superhero film. It’s an imaginative story that doesn’t shy away from being a little dark in places. That dark undertone really heightened the excitement and intensity of the film. There are some powerful

Since then, the pair has worked together each year to help hundreds of families in Kingston and the surrounding area. Devon and her father begin each year by posting flyers in their area advertising the toy drive. They post to over 400 houses in the Bayridge and Bath Road region. Once word gets out, the pair travel door-to-door

EMC News - Devon Cobb has been a very busy young lady this holiday season. For the fifth year in a row, she has run a toy drive in her neighbourhood to support Children and Family Services of Frontenac, Lennox and Addington. This organization works to strengthen families and protect children from harm. Cobb, who is just 10 years

Beautiful Christmas

he said. Additionally, this year, famed Canadian author Eric Walters met with Devon and promised to share her story with the schools he visits. He also donated a large number of books to the toy drive. By the end of Friday’s collection, Devon had well over a 1,000 single-item toys, and the Cobbs still have many toys coming in. This year is sure to be Devon’s largest collection. The Cobbs doubled their efforts this year, also collecting toys in Napanee. This

is the first holiday season for the incorporated Children and Family Services, formed earlier this year by the amalgamation of the Children’s Aid Society of the City of Kingston and County of Frontenac, and the Lennox and Addington Family and Children’s Services. Janet Keyes, who works with Children and Family Services, says that there are over six hundred families currently being serviced. Thanks to Devon’s toy drive, many of these families will be able to provide a

nice Christmas morning for their children. Devon, who is in Grade 5 at Henderson, already has plans for next year. She says that she plans to do another toy drive. Both Devon and her father hope to keep increasing the number of children that benefit from their event; last year, they helped over 500 children, and their aim is even higher this season. Both Devon and Sterling are humbled by the amazing turnout this year. “We’re really grateful,” says Sterling.

Hope and Action campaign aims to bring focus to gender violence By Mandy Marciniak EMC Correspondent

EMC News - From Nov. 25 to Dec. 10, many local organizations in the Kingston area have organized the Hope and Action campaign, a program that works in tandem with the 16 days of activism against gender violence, in an effort to bring attention to violence against women. Michelle LaMarche, education and communications coordinator for Kingston Interval House, one of the partners in the campaign, has been working hard to get the word out. “The campaign encourages people to make a commitment and share it with everyone, on what they will do to end violence against women and what they will do to help. That can be a very personal commitment in terms of doing something within their own family or taking a stand against violence that they are

experiencing personally. Or it can be something on a much larger scale of perhaps coming and participating in future activism events or writing a letter to a member of parliament about this issue.” The campaign has set up two Hope and Action trees, one at the Central branch of the Kingston, Frontenac Public Library and the other on the Queen’s campus. Members of the community are encouraged to visit these trees, write down their commitment on a leaf and add it to the tree. So far, the trees have seen quite a bit of traffic and LaMarche hopes to see this continue. “There were already five or six leaves on the tree at Queen’s within the first 12 hours, so that is really positive.” The campaign is also bringing attention to another issue on the Queen’s campus this year: prank Blue Light pushes. “It is an issue that has re-

cently come to attention in the community,” explained LaMarche. “On Queen’s campus they have blue light emergency phones throughout campus. In the last few years there has been an increasing amount of prank phone calls made. Last year there were 327. This creates a lot of issues for campus security because they have to respond to all of the calls. The prank calls are an indication of a culture that does not take violence against women seriously. These phones were put there because the University responded to women in 1999 who wanted something done to protect them on campus and now they are being abused.” The Queen’s AMS has launched a campaign to reduce these prank Blue Light pushes, utilizing posters and social media. One of the other events occurring with the Hope and Action campaign is a vigil on Dec. 6. “It is primarily to mark the anniversary of the 14 women that were murdered in Montreal at L’ecole Polytechnique. So we remember those 14 women, but the day has also been declared International Day of Elimination of Violence Against Women. We’re focusing, this year particularly, on women who have been killed by their partners. There have been well over 500 women who have been killed by their partners since the Montreal massacre in Ontario alone. We will also be specifically remembering some local women and will have some family members there to speak,” said LaMarche. While these events see a great turnout each year, LaMarche emphasized the need for people to do more. “I would encourage people to come out to raise awareness. When people show up to these events, it lets other people see that it should be recognized as a serious issue. Remembrance Day and other special days are recognized and taken very seriously, as they should be, but the International Day of Elimination

Essence restaurant provides a unique opportunity for St. Lawrence students By Mandy Marciniak EMC Correspondent

EMC News - Culinary students at St. Lawrence College are receiving a unique opportunity and gaining valuable experience through their student run restaurant, Essence. The restaurant has been running for the past eight years and serves a three-course lunch from Monday to Wednesday each week for $9.95, a price that is almost unheard of outside of the fast food world. For this reason, Essence doesn’t advertise outside of the university. “We don’t want to take business away from the city and all of the restaurants in Kingston and they also hire our graduates, so if we advertise and undercut their prices our students have nowhere to go to get work when they graduate,” joked Richard Hendy, co- coordinator of the culinary programs at St. Lawrence College. From October to December, second year students in the culinary program run Essence with the 60 person cohort broken up into groups of 20 for each day. In January, the first year students in the program take over the restaurant, offering them a unique, hands-on learning experience. “They all get to do a service

Barbadian themed night. It made them feel a little more at home and it was a great opportunity for our students to learn about it as well. It was fascinating and really interesting to see,” explained Hendy. Despite the lack of advertising, Essence still sees about 20-35 visitors a day. Students, faculty, older members in the community and business people all take advantage of Essence’s gourmet menu and cheap prices. Hendy, as one of the instructors in the program, also really enjoys Essence. “We thoroughly enjoy the program and its integration with the restaurant. With all of the teachers and professors, we have such a large knowledge base. We have about 150 years worth of knowledge between all of us and we tell our students that you will never get that kind of knowledge anywhere else for this trade and it is an excellent resource for them. All of this combined with the restaurant makes this program truly unique and an excellent opportunity for those interested in a culinary career.” For more information on Essence and how to make reservations visit their website at www.

King’s Town Players takes on a holiday classic By Mandy Marciniak Correspondent

EMC Entertainment - A Christmas Story is one of the most well known and beloved holiday classics, and this year it comes to life on stage in Kingston. The King’s Town Players is putting on a production of the cult classic at Convocation Hall at Queen’s from Dec. 5-15. The production is adapted from the original screenplay for the movie and is being directed by David Slack, one of the founders of King’s Town Players, a group that formed two and half years ago. Slack is very excited about putting on A Christmas Story this holiday season, and explained that there were some issues obtaining permission to do the play here in Kingston. “Initially we were turned down because it really hasn’t been done by

an amateur group before and has only been done professionally. We were lucky enough that we were able to convince them to give us a shot at it and we would be very faithful and good to the production.” The play itself is very true to the original screenplay, and for those that love the 1983 movie, many things will be very familiar. “The content of the show is very faithful to the movie with elements like the red rider BB gun, the famous leg lamp, flick and the gang with their tongue on the lamppost. It really has all of the elements that come to mind when you think of A Christmas Story,” said Slack. Casting for the play was somewhat challenging. The cast is made up of four adult actors that are quite seasoned and helped in mentoring the rest of the cast which consists of nine kids between the ages

of eight and 12, “Many of them have very limited or no stage experience so the learning curve was a bit high in the beginning, but it has been great. They are very adaptable and they have worked harder than I have seen a lot of other seasoned actors work. I’m looking forward to seeing them on stage and seeing the end result of all of our work,” said Slack. This will be the third time Slack has directed for King’s Town Players and certainly one of his most enjoyable projects. “With this play in particular, everyone comes to it with a story about it, whether they’ve seen the film 100 times or their parents did, it is such a wellloved movie and story and it’s really great to hear everyone’s connection to it. That makes it even more exciting because they are all very committed to the project and want it to do well.” Slack encourages everyone to come out and see the production, even if they aren’t familiar with the movie. “We encourage families to come out because it is a really enjoyable, fastpaced production and is pretty well-rounded with something for everyone to enjoy. It’s very comedic at times for adults and children and is just a really enjoyable production.” For more information on this production or how to get tickets visit www.

LIFESTYLE

EMC - Your Community Newspaper

A restful refuge By Merola Nibourg Columnist

EMC Lifestyle - Bedrooms are probably one of the most neglected areas of any home although we spend one third of our lives there. Most people only require a room that contains a comfortable bed. As reasoning goes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the greatest portion of that time is spent visually unconscious, who cares how the room looks?â&#x20AC;? Back in history, bedrooms did not even exist. Domestic privacy did not really arise until the beginning of the 17th century. Before this time, people ate, entertained and slept in the same room. People rarely slept alone. Around the 17th century, beds were made less mobile and a fitted curtain was attached to give some degree of privacy. Still, servants slept alongside their masters on trundle beds. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to imagine that there was so little privacy, but at one point in time people who managed to shut themselves up in a room for some time were regarded as exceptional characters. It was in the 18th century when the notion of family life and privacy took root, that rooms with specialized furniture took over from semi-public arrangements

of space in a house. Most notably, bedrooms moved upstairs and became citadels of privacy. Now, in the 21st century, bedrooms are returning to a less isolated area, but not as public as before. Many people feel uneasy sleeping in ground floor bedrooms, particularly because in upper floors they receive more light. Now eco-designers are designing homes where the bedroom is oriented towards the sunrise so people wake up naturally with the sun. The theory is our bodies are tuned to the sunâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cycle and if you are gently nudged awake by the sun immediately after a period of REM sleep you are more likely to emerge refreshed and energetic. Conversely, if you are woken artificially in mid-sleep cycle, you will have to drag yourself out of bed. Certainly, the idea of sleeping facing the east has prevailed through the years and with many different cultures. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bedrooms are developing multiple purposes, often combining as a study or personal living space. The bedroom should not be undervalued. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fall asleep right away, there are those moments just before we go to sleep, taking a look back at our day and winding down, or waking up recharged and taking

time to reflect and contemplate. So your bedroom should have as much attention as your kitchen or living room. Bedrooms are mainly used as a room for sleeping. They should be more than just a bed in a room, especially when space is at such a premium. We should acknowledge this space. The bed is the dominant feature in the room, but what about the space around it? This space tends to be awkward and unfocused, with no easy circulation flow. These qualities all make the bedroom uninviting and dead space during daytime. So what are your solutions? There are futons and sofabeds, which have the benefit and versatility but lack as a permanent arrangement. Although technology has improved, these are still not as comfortable as a traditional bed. The solution may be as simple as moving the bed to a different position. Moving the bed to a corner may give you more manageable space, but makes access for one person difficult and changing the sheets a chore. It also allows little to no space for a beside table. There are built-in alternatives such as a shelf or small cove in the wall. Most people are happier with the bed cater-corner to the

door, half concealed behind the door rather than facing it. This is known as the ancient science as feng sui. Feng sui guides interior design and often resides much rational sense. With this science, the bed should be positioned so the occupant can see anyone entering the room. The headboard should rest against the wall, not floating in space since the bedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s occupants will otherwise feel similarly unanchored in life. One solution would be to incorporate a study into the bedroom. This allows the bedroom to be used both day and night. Some people feel it is unhealthy to have electromagnetic radiation in the same room as we sleep. It also attracts the obvious dust. Or some feel the bedroom should be a space for relaxation. This can be achieved by adding a small library to your room, with a chaise lounge. A perfect place to escape for a tranquil moment. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s modern bedrooms are about the physical and visual conditions. We associate sleep with purity, and this is why we are so concerned about sleeping in a benign atmosphere. The bedroom also has a sensual side, which some emphasize. Whereas some bedrooms are designed in a more exotic look in dark colours and with a four poster bed for

instance. Perhaps this is why so many of us do not show off our bedrooms, because they reveal too much of us, and we tend to design our rooms safely to yield no clues. Certain colours work best in a bedroom. Although white remains popular for its pure and romantic elegance, yellow makes a room look sunny, even when skies are grey. Those who are more awake at night should

choose colours that are darker; jewel-like colours to intensify a warm enclosed atmosphere. A bedroom is your own personal space, and should be designed to suit your personal lifestyle, and preferences.

CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE

EMC - Your Community Newspaper

Prevent lost children while holiday shopping guard or store employee and ask for help. * Dress boldly. Part of the problem when holiday shopping is being swarmed by different people all dressed similarly. Designate brightly colored clothes that both you and your children can wear to be more visible. Most small children only have the vantage point of seeing from the waist down. Consider wearing flashy shoes or a bandana tied to belt loops to help you stand out. Children can wear a bright shirt or hat so you can see them at all times. * Dress-up strollers, too. Many strollers are identical in appearance. Set yours apart by tying a ribbon or balloon to it. This way you will be able to notice if someone is wandering off with your stroller -- and your child! * Carry a recent photo. Take a picture of your children with your mobile phone before leaving the house so that you will know exactly what he or she was wearing and will have the most recent photo available for identification. In addition to taking a head shot, take a photo of the child’s shoes, too. In events of child abduction, kidnappers may have

The only thing scarier during the holidays than the tally on a credit card bill come January is the idea of a child getting lost or abducted while out shopping. Safety tips can keep children by your side or help caregivers find kids fast should they wander off. These are a busy few months at the mall, with many people packed into stores in search of the perfect gifts. Confusion and the sheer volume of shoppers can increase the chance that a child will get lost. A lost child can create panic parents and caregivers. However, keeping a level head is more beneficial than running off to find the child. Although preventing a child from wandering off is the best method of protection, being prepared for what to do should the child go missing is equally important. * Talk about what to do. Sit children who are old enough down to help them understand and set up a plan of action if they become separated from you. In familiar stores, you can establish a meeting spot to go to, such as near the cash register. Instruct children to seek a security

a change of clothes ready for children, but rarely will they be able to change kids’ shoes because of sizing issues. Those shoes can prove an invaluable method of identification. * Give children identification. You can create a personal ID card with basic information to help reunite you with your child.

The

This may include only the child’s first name and an “I’m Lost” message with a phone number to “Call Mom.” Because even an ID card can go missing, some inventive parents are using methods like temporary tattoo IDs like those from SafetyTat(R). * Hold hands and stay connected. Keep your children within reach and do not let them stay in

one aisle while you shop in another. Holding hands keeps children within reach. Although many parents frown on the use of a child leash, if it means the difference between a child running off or staying put, it might be a good idea. * Reinforce positive behavior. Should a child wander off and follow safety tips, reward that behavior with praise when

you are reunited. Wait until another time to talk about why he or she got lost and how to make sure it doesn’t happen again. Children tend to wander off out of curiosity or by following the wrong person. During the busy holiday season this can happen more frequently. By heeding tips, children can be kept safe whenever the family is in a crowd.

Save when shopping this holiday season * Empty your wallet of gift cards. Gift cards are popular gifts come the holidays, but many gift card recipients fail to use their cards prior to their expiration dates. Many cards expire 12 months after their initial purchase date. If your wallet is filled with gift cards you received last holiday season, use them to buy gifts for friends and family now before they expire. * Make a list. Santa Claus is renowned for making a list come the holiday season, and holiday shoppers should follow his lead. Prior to your first holiday shopping trip, make a list that includes the names of friends and family to buy for and what you want to buy for each one of them. Doing so decreases the chances youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll forget someone and be forced to drive back to the mall. Reducing the number of shopping trips you have to make will conserve fuel and save you a substantial amount of money and time. * Pay in cash. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not a fan of online shopping, then use only cash when shopping at brickand-mortar stores. Paying with cash eliminates the risk of overspending with credit cards, which will come back to haunt you in January when the bills are due. Take a predetermined

The holiday season is filled with tradition. Many families have their own unique customs, and those traditions create lasting memories for adults and children alike. One such holiday tradition is shopping for gifts for family and friends. Many people enjoy holiday shopping, anxiously anticipating the look on their loved onesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; faces when they open their presents. But holiday shopping is even more enjoyable for shoppers who can save a little extra money. The following are a few tips for shoppers who still want to give the perfect gifts but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to break the bank. * Stop paying for shipping. Many people now do their holiday shopping online. Online shopping can be more convenient and give consumers more options. But some shoppers still shy away from online retailers for fear of high shipping costs. However, some retailers offer free shipping to consumers who spend a certain amount of money. In addition, savvy shoppers can scour the Internet for free shipping codes they can use at checkout. Some retailers even offer free shipping during the holiday season (last minute purchases might not be eligible) to entice customers.

amount of cash with you when shopping, and once that money is gone, then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to go home. * Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be tempted by retailer credit cards. Retailer credit cards can be very tempting, especially when the cashier offers an immediate 20 percent discount if you sign up for the card at the register. But that discount comes at a steep price down the road. Not only will you be receiving a bill after the holiday season, but that retailer credit card will most definitely feature a high interest rate that can negate the initial discount at the register -- unless you pay off the balance in full. * Create spending parameters with your immediate family. The economy has yet to fully recover from the downturn that began nearly half a decade ago. As a result, many people still approach the holiday shopping season with a degree of trepidation. Get together with your immediate family and establish spending parameters so no person feels like he or she has to spend too much money on holiday shopping. Agree that no gift should cost more than $25. Everyone will still enjoy the holiday season and one anotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s company, and they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be forced to deal with the stress of overspending.

Tips for getting greeting cards out on time cards to arrive first will mail them within a few days of Thanksgiving. When sent domestically, it is safe to assume that cards mailed out up to 2 weeks before Christmas will arrive on time. After that point, you may be risking lateness, particularly for rural delivery addresses unless cards are sent priority. For those who need to mail cards internationally, sticking close to the end of November will ensure they arrive in a timely manner. People who want to make a statement and not have their greeting cards get lost in the crowd may intentionally mail them late and lean toward wishing health and prosperity for the new year, rather than sending a

card tied to a specific holiday. This gives extra time for mailing and will set cards apart from the many others. Photo cards have grown in popularity, and people interested in having a professional photographer shoot their holiday card photos would be wise to make an appointment as early as possible. Popular photographers often start holiday photo shoots in October. Keep in mind that the photographs can take a while to be processed and arrive. For those who are on borrowed time, taking a photo with a personal

camera and having prints made up at a pharmacy or retail store can save time. It is unlikely that professional photos taken in December can be printed and mailed and still arrive on time. Also, be sure to heed copyright laws concerning photographs. It may be illegal to scan an image from a photographer or photo studio and have prints made without written permission. Postage is another thing that will have to be considered when mailing out cards. While many cards fall under the weight and size limits of a regular first class

N

eilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

Flowers

postage stamp, unusually shaped envelopes or heavy greeting cards may cost more. Rather than have them returned, it is a good idea to have at least one card weighed at the post office to ensure the right amount of postage is affixed. Some cards will be packaged with envelopes that state â&#x20AC;&#x153;Additional postage may be requiredâ&#x20AC;? right on the box. Greeting cards are an important component of the holiday season. Ensuring they arrive on time requires planning and sending them out with ample time to spare

dividual greeting cards for every recipient. This trend toward general-theme cards has streamlined the process and can help senders start their tasks earlier than ever before. Some people like to take advantage of post-holiday sales to stock up on greeting cards for the following year at a deep discount. This means they can write the cards out at their leisure and then simply toss them into the mailbox at the appropriate time. Much in the way people begin their holiday shopping or decorating right after the Thanksgiving turkey leftovers have been stored away, a good majority of people also begin their greeting card writing after Thanksgiving as well.

Millions of greeting cards are sent out each holiday season. Estimates suggest that 85 percent of the United States population, or roughly 250 million people, mails out greeting cards. That adds up to billions of cards going through the postal system -- and all in a relatively short period of time. Men and women who hope to send holiday greeting cards must purchase, prepare and mail the cards early enough so they are received prior to the holiday. It is never too early to begin greeting card preparation and assembly. The majority of cards are bought in boxed packages or groupings of photo cards. Gone are the days of hand-picking in-

Operation Red Nose works to help keep the community safe free, volunteer-run designated driver service which caters to all motorists who have been drinking or who do not feel fit to drive their own vehicle. It provides patrons a safe, confidential ride in their own vehicle without getting behind the wheel themselves. Louise La Rue, program coordinator, has been working with Operation Red Nose since 1997 and emphasized the need for this service and the volunteers that make it work each year.

“We need volunteers. We always need volunteers. Every weekend until Christmas we will be operating every Friday and Saturday night from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m., which is when we will take the last call for the night. We need teams of three, so for every call three people go out. We also need people to volunteer to be dispatchers and operators.” Last year the program had 271 volunteers which is a testament to how great this program really is.

work with young people. In Kingston, funds raised benefit local family literacy projects and other educational programs. While the service is free, people are encouraged to make donations for their ride and most people give generously. The average donation last year was $25 per call. Last year they were able to raise $14,000, bringing their total since 1997 to $151,000, a very impressive amount for a relatively small project that runs one month a year. “It is really great when you consider that everything is purely volunteer run. It is a really great program that is run by the community for the community. It is something that brings people together. Some people volunteer because they don’t have many friends and they can meet new people here and make friends,” added La Rue. “It is really fun and we get a lot of donations from local places of food and it is just a really fun night and we have built really great relationships over the years. It is an experience that is fun, people come here and give as much time as they can and when they are done they can go home and they know that they have helped the community.” For more information on Operation Red Nose or how to volunteer visit their website at www.kingston.org/rednose/history.html

No need to correct spelling! - Your name, age and school be marked clearly on the bottom or back of the copy so that they can be identified and recognized for their work. - Stories be no more that one page in length. - Drawings be done in dark colours (markers or pencil crayon) as they reproduce in the newspaper best, on 8 1/2 x 11 white paper.
