ning and development Forbes Symon that Habitat for Humanity Thousand Islands will be setting up another home in Kemptville. The committee voted for the approximately $21,925 for the future build at 300 Dumbrille Street, which is located on the former Kemptville Anglican Church site. Robert Noseworthy, chair of the North Grenville Steering Committee, Habitat for Humanity, Thousand Islands, wrote a letter to council to “humbly ask that all of the associated municipal fees be waived for this charitable organization’s proposed building lot.” The fees to be waived include building permit, development charges, and inspection fees. “Habitat for Humanity is a

non-profit organization that is registered as a charity in Canada, and can issue tax receipts for gifts such as the fees and charges associated with a new building lot,” states Noseworthy in his letter. According to a staff report, this would be considered the municipality’s formal contribution to the project and be recognized as a “gift” for which a tax receipt would be issued. The staff report went on to say how the consensus of senior management was that the organization’s project was an important one for the community and favoured waiving all the municipal fees. According to the 1000 Islands Habitat for Humanity website, the non-profit, independent orga-

nization is dedicated to eliminating poverty housing by building homes in partnership with families in need. The ministry of Habitat is to provide simple, decent, affordable housing to those who do not qualify for or cannot afford a conventional mortgage. Through volunteer labour, efficient management and tax-deductible donations of money and materials, Habitat builds simple houses with the help of the homeowner (partner) families. The Habitat program is about home ownership, a long-term solution designed to break the poverty cycle. For more information, please visit www.habitat1000islands. com.

from our fans so that number is growing,â€? said Arbour But what about other small towns you ask? “The sky is really the limit,â€? said Fallak, â€œâ€ŚEach small town has their own landmarks, their own story to tell and so the Almontees model is very scalable.â€? Work has apparently already begun on a line of Carleton Place Tshirts, which will be called CPTees, and the duo is consulting with locals on what landmarks they’d most like to see. Creativity isn’t scarce between these two, who both have years of experience in marketing and advertising. Arbour is the co-founder of the wildly popular Handmade Harvest Craft Show (May 4 in Almonte) and she’ll also be opening a handmade-centric gift shop on Mill St. in Almonte later this summer. As for Fallak, he operates a home dĂŠcor business in town called VersaTile, which transfers photos and designs to marble tiles. The two have joined forces and created Small Town Thinking, which they describe as ‘an idea generation and creative execution agency.’ Almontees is the first project under the Small Town Thinking umbrella. “We’re trying to be disruptive. We want to bring big ideas to small towns – there’s so much potential to do great things here,â€? said Fallak. And that leads to another initiative of Small Town Thinking: the CreativExchange, which is a monthly meet-up of local business owners and entrepreneurs. “There are a lot of people doing great things in the small communities outside of Ottawa, we wanted to create an environment where we could get them all in the same room at the same time,â€? said Arbour. The free evenings are currently an informal open forum format, which allows everyone a chance to ask for advice on a problem, share successes and exchange ideas. “It’s all about sharing.

EMC Business – Two local entrepreneurs Emily Arbour and Dan Fallak are looking to take small town pride to the next level and they’re starting in Almonte. The duo recently launched a project called Almontees, a line of T-shirts featuring stylized versions of iconic landmarks and signs in the area. Since first appearing on Facebook in a post reading “Meet Almontees: a nostalgic line of Almonte inspired T-shirts,� the project has gone viral, well, at least about as viral as a hyper local project about Almonte can go. “We are floored by the reaction Almontees has gotten. Our project launch on Facebook was shared over 400 times and the post was seen by over 30,000 people,� said Fallak. “I think anyone who has ever lived in Almonte and is on Facebook saw the post.� He might be right. A quick scan on other social media reveals this tweet from Hot 89.9 radio personality and Almonte native Josie Geuer: “I already ordered SIX!� Arbour and Fallak confirm that orders started coming in right away for the first collection of shirts, which includes designs featuring the Almonte water tower, the Black Watch Tobacco ad that is painted on a large wall in lower Mill St. and the iconic Superior Restaurant sign. “Being from Almonte is like being a part of an exclusive club. These iconic landmarks really resonate with Almontonians both currently living here and ones who’ve moved away – in fact, we got an order from Vancouver on the first night,� said Arbour. The shirts are currently only available online at, but there have already been requests from shop owners in town to carry the line in their stores. These unisex shirts are the first in a series of ‘collections’ that will be released over the course of the spring, summer and beyond. “We have about another eight shirts designed already, and we are getting a lot of great suggestions

Songwriting troubadour appears at MERA Schoolhouse May 12 EMC Entertainment – A new generation’s balladeer troubadour coming to MERA Schoolhouse Aengus Finnan, acknowledged as one of the best of Canada’s new breed of songwriting troubadours, will make a rare appearance at MERA Schoolhouse on Sunday, May 12, at 2:00 pm. The DornerSullivan family is promoting the concert under the aegis of their “Incident at Shakey Acres� brand, though the event will be held at the MERA venue. “It’s such a great space for music,� says Danny Sullivan, “and Aengus is one of my personal favourite singersongwriters. There are so many great music fans in this area, and I wanted them to get a chance to see him perform.� Finnan has only performed rarely in recent years, concentrating his energy instead on founding the Shelter Valley Folk Festival in Grafton (near Cobourg), then taking an administrative position with the Ontario Arts Council. “I talked to Aengus at a music conference last October,� Sullivan says, “and he said he was starting to do live performances again, but he wasn’t out looking for gigs. He told me he only played when someone asked him. So I asked him.� “I think of Aengus as the iconic balladeer of his generation; a new Stan Rogers or Gordon Lightfoot. We’ve seen a lot of our great musical talents and personalities passing on over the last little while – Stompin’ Tom, Rita MacNiel, Tam Kierney and others. If you’re wondering where the new generation of talented performers is, to me it begins with Aengus Finnan. His songs tell the great stories of the ordinary people of this country – both past and present. And his voice and melodies are the kind that get under your skin and live there, from the first time you hear them.� Born in Dublin, Ireland to performing parents, and raised in Shelter Valley, Ontario on an organic cooperative farm, Aengus Finnan studied Visual Arts at Lester B. Pearson

and performances in Japan and Australia. Since 2004 Aengus has been working behind the scenes in the music business, founding a festival, serving as president of the Ontario Council of Folk Festivals and currently as the Touring and Audience Development officer for the Ontario Arts Council. He also founded Art Beat (a community outreach initiative for the Ontario Council of Folk Festivals), co-founded

The Way We Feel (a Gordon Lightfoot Tribute concert series), helped establish the Northumberland Arts Council, and chaired the inaugural Park Theatre Foundation Board. As a side project he renovated an old general store/butcher shop in his boyhood hometown of Grafton and there ran The Lawless Gallery of Fine Art featuring the work of Canadian painter Michael Glover. The Gallery was also home to a

winter concert series. The Aengus Finnan concert at MERA Schoolhouse in McDonald’s Corners will begin at 2 p.m. on Sunday, May 12. Tickets are $20 and are available from Tickets Please at 39 Foster St. Perth (Jo’s Clothes) online at or by phone at 613-485-6434.

Aengus Finnan, a songwriting troubadour, will appear at MERA Schoolhouse on May 12. Tickets are on sale now. United World College, Theatre at Concordia University in Montreal, and graduated as valedictorian for the Faculty of Education at Nippissing University in North Bay. He has worked as a research diver and ornithologist in Alberta, and as a school-teacher in Moosonee on the remote Canadian James Bay coast and in Inuvik (in the Canadian Arctic). His 1999 independent debut CD Fool’s Gold drew critical praise and included his much requested love song ‘Lately’ (featuring the backing vocals of Juno Award winner Jenny Whiteley), while his 2002 sophomore release North Wind, garnered even more acclaim and showcased his touring band and friends Trevor Mills and David Rogers, as well as Serena Ryder on backing vocals. The album features primarily original songs as well as an intriguing adaptation of a grim and rarely recorded traditional Ontario lumbercamp song ‘Lost Jimmy Whelan,’ as well as select covers of material by Slaid Cleaves, Maria Dunn, and Bill Caddick. From this album his

original songs ‘Rolling Home’ and ‘O’Shaughnessy’s Lament’ were awarded the prestigious New Folk Songwriter’s Award at the Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas. Aengus has an unreleased live album recorded at a 2003 fundraising concert for the inaugural Shelter Valley Folk Festival, as well as an album of field recordings of Robert Service poetry he recorded throughout the Yukon. He produced a community fundraising album called Valley Voices in 2002, and later co-produced Coastline of Our Dreams, an Ian Tamblyn tribute album. His songs have been recorded by numerous artists including Irish American tenor Seamus Kennedy and Newfoundland songstress Joy Norman. His song ‘Lightfoot’ was included as a bonus track on ‘Beautiful’, Canada’s first ever tribute to Gordon Lightfoot released by Borealis Records. Aengus spent six years touring (1998-2004) including highlight performances at the Yukon International Storytelling Festival, The Kennedy Center for the Arts, in Washington DC,

EMC News – Dr. Wayne Hammond of Calgary has seen the existing social services programs for children these last 20 years and challenges those in education and child care to move away from a diagnosis-geared approach to a pro-active, strength building approach. “Shift from what’s wrong to what’s strong,� Dr. Hammond said during his presentation at a special presentation at SFDCI May 1. Throughout his career of working with at-risk youth Dr. Hammond has seen the negative impacts students face when labeled with a learning disability or behaviour problem at a young age. In acknowledging the fact that 70 per cent of children diagnosed in elementary schools out grow their diagnosis at some stage, Dr. Hammond challenges the professional world to focus on behaviour and learning difficulties by building on students’ strengths and not allowing those they work with to be labeled or label themselves. “If you’re only focused on people’s behaviour then you’re missing the boat because behaviour comes from something,� the doctor said. He proposes focusing on the feelings behind the behaviour, which often leads to a lack of resiliency. To do this educators, parents and child care workers have to develop a relationship of mutual respect by listening to children and building a

point will experience failure. Those who survive and thrive in the world have learned to get up after being shut down. “I’m a big believer in not trying to protect people from risk,� Dr. Hammond added to parents. “Your job is to mess your kids lives up three-tofour times a week� so they learn to rebound from it. He urges parents to challenge their kids with age appropriate responsibilities and chores to develop the ‘I can do this’ attitude. By doing this and unwaveringly supporting your child’s passion in life, Dr. Hammond feels every child will be able to live independently in the world despite economic changes or challenges they face. The doctor believes the future economy will have more to do with creativity and entrepreneurism than a university education. Why the shift now? The economic realities of today dictate a much-needed change in how social service programs in Canada are being delivered. Dr. Hammond noted funding is reducing while case loads are ever increasing. Taking a pro-active approach could turn this trend on its head, but it will take a reconfiguration of the existing funding formula that would commend good work with funding rather than forcing professionals to prove how deep the need is through labeling their clients. Once this is completed,

Lanark County approves Sustainable Communities Official Plan

Planning for accessible signals Council has approved a policy regarding the installation of accessible pedestrian signals. These would be used at intersections that have traffic signals to provide crossing information to blind, visually impaired and deaf-blind persons. The policy stems from a countywide assessment to determine need for the signals on county and local municipal roads. Currently, there are 33 signalized intersections in the county and the policy was developed by staff from the county, Perth, Carleton Place and Mississippi Mills and reviewed by respective accessibility advisory committees. The intent was to develop an evaluation tool that would prioritize signals for retrofits to include accessible pedestrian signals. The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act encourages this action. Grants may be available for retrofitting certain intersections, and the policy will provide a consistent county-wide approach for planning to meet needs of blind, visually impaired and deaf-blind persons. The adoption of the policy came on the same night that warden Bill Dobson (Montague reeve) declared May 26 to June 1 as National Access Awareness Week.

Commercial use policy approved Following a public consultation process, a commercial use policy for community forests has been approved by county council. The policy ensures any commercial activities on the properties contribute to the environmental, social and economic well-being of the county by providing for orderly use and sustainable management of the community forests. It is designed to ensure that resources in the forests are made available in a fair and equitable manner. If anyone has an enquiry about commercial use in the community forests, each application will be looked at individually and an appendix for each type of use would be developed for the policy. High scores for Lanark Lodge The county’s long-term care home, Lanark Lodge, received high scores in its 2012 Resident/Family Satisfaction Survey, which helps staff to determine trends and plan for improvements. There was a 28 per cent response rate (the average is about 20 per cent), and results showed 98 per cent of respondents were overall satisfied with the quality of care and services in the home, which is consistent with the previous year. The home rated very high scores (92 to 100 per cent) for making family members feel welcome, personal grooming, cleanliness, courteous staff, caring and compassionate nursing staff, activation services, meal choices and therapy programs. “The remarkable rate of satisfaction achieved in overall care and services, as well as the individual ratings in a number of specific domains, speaks to the high level of concerted effort to promote the best care and services for our elders in Lanark County,� said Lanark Lodge director Deborah

Community meetings planned As part of the county’s process to develop a 10-year housing and homelessness plan, a series of community meetings are scheduled. As a followup to meetings held in December, staff will review input that has been received and provide an overview of priorities and strategic objectives that have been developed. The plan will address the housing needs of local residents, the services that are currently provided, gaps in services and goals for addressing those gaps. The vision is to provide residents with access to safe and healthy homes that help to build strong local communities. All residents and services providers in Lanark County are welcome. Meetings are scheduled for May 1 in Smiths Falls from 9 a.m. to noon at the Smiths Falls Legion, 7 Main St. E., and in Carleton Place from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. in the Carleton Place arena (upstairs), 75 Neelin St.

The county is also promoting the fact Lake 88.1 FM is a point of information during an emergency. Watch local newspapers for info about 72-hour kits. The proclamation of Paramedic and Emergency Medical Services Week is designed to thank Lanark County paramedics for the essential service they perform. “It is important to take time to recognize that paramedics are an integral part of the Ontario health care system,� explained Rick Hannah, the county’s emergency services coordinator. “The lifesaving skills delivered by the paramedics, usually the first responder in the time of need, direct the patient on the steps to recovery.�

HEARING TESTS 31 William Street East, Smiths Falls



Dr. Hammond would like to see an equal amount of effort put on the middle years of childhood development. Currently, the early years and teenage years are full of support programs for families to tap into, but the years of six to 11 are lost despite the fact that a child’s brain continues to develop in those years. The doctor applauded the work of those professionals in the room that night, saying “For some of you here you’re doing pretty amazing things.� That is the truth. The evening’s purpose was to hand out the Raising the Bar certificates of achievement to 18 Lanark County delivery centres. Approximately 18 programs were recognized May 1, 13 of whom achieving gold level status and three being receiving acknowledgement for the first time from the program. Raising the Bar is a voluntary standards program for licenced child care centres that recognizes places that go above and beyond the Day Nurseries Act. “The every day work that you do has not gone unnoticed,� said Mary Lou White, staff member with Lanark County. Those to receive recognition this year include: Rideau Child Care, Carleton Place Child Care Services, Linda Lowe Day Care Centre, On-

Pidgeon. “The staff of Lanark Lodge should be recognized for their diligent efforts and their ongoing commitment to fulfil our mission of people caring for people.�


Henry Norwood honoured Warden Bill Dobson (Montague reeve) presented a certificate to local singer Henry Norwood congratulating him for his recent accomplishments as part of the CBC Radio Searchlight competition. Norwood, 14, was one of almost 3,000 entrants in the national competition, which invited listeners to vote for contestants. With his song

‘Another Bottle, Another Day,’ he was selected as one of the 32 to proceed and made it to the top four in April. “Thank you for everything you did to promote Lanark County and put us on the map,� said Dobson.

EMC News – The following are highlights from the regular Lanark County council meeting held Wednesday, April 24 at the county administration building in Perth. Council has approved the modifications negotiated with the provincial Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing for its Sustainable Communities Official Plan (SCOP). The plan and recommended modifications are now with the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing for final review, and a “Notice of Decision� is expected to be issued shortly. In accordance with the Planning Act, the ministry’s decision will be subject to a statutory 20-day appeal period prior to the official plan coming into effect. The SCOP, called “Sustainable Lanark,� combines an integrated community sustainability plan with an official plan (a first in Ontario) and was developed to meet the requirement of the Federal Gas Tax Transfer Agreement. It was developed in consultation with local municipalities and the public and is intended to provide a land-use framework that recognizes and supports local municipal Official Plans. This is the first Official Plan for Lanark County. It can be viewed at Councillor Susan Freeman (Tay Valley deputy reeve) thanked staff for their hard work on the plan and their attention to detail.

New Healthy Hikes campaign launched Perthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Got Talent EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Mississippi Valley Conservation (MVC) along with Conservation Ontario and their partners are kicking off a brand new provincial hiking campaign today, called Healthy Hikes. Healthy Hikes runs until Oct. 31 and will highlight the many ways our environment boosts human health and how Ontarians can energize their body and mind simply by spending more time in nature. Ontarians are encouraged to take the Healthy Hikes challenge by registering online and then recording their time spent hiking in the more than 270 conservation areas owned and operated by conservation authorities across Ontario for a chance to win great prizes. MVC owns operates three conservation areas in the Ottawa Valley: the Mill of Kintail, Purdon, and Morris Island. â&#x20AC;&#x153;An increasing body of evidence suggests that spending time outdoors can provide many health benefits including increased energy and immunity, increased weight loss and fitness, increased Vitamin D production, reduction in symptoms of anxiety and depression, and a reduced risk of diabetes, heart attacks, and cancer,â&#x20AC;? says Kim Gavine, general manager of Conservation Ontario, the organization that represents Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 36 conservation authorities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some doctors have even started prescribing hikes in local green spaces for their patients suffering from a variety of preventable illnesses.â&#x20AC;?

Conservation authorities collectively own over 2,500 kilometres of trails, and the conservation areas that they operate help protect ecologic features such as wetlands, forests, rivers and streams, and great lakes shoreline, all of which contribute in invaluable ways to our overall health and well-being. The air we breathe, the food we eat, and the water we drink are impacted by the health of the natural environment. Other organizations partnering with Conservation Ontario and the conservation authorities include the Canadian Mental Health Association, Trees Ontario, York Region, the Ontario Trails Council, Ducks Unlimited Canada, The Bruce Trail Conservancy, and the David Suzuki Foundation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have had amazing partners come on board,â&#x20AC;? says Gavine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are hosting or partnering with conservation authorities on events, promoting activities, and providing some great online resources related to the health benefits of spending time in nature.â&#x20AC;? By participating in the various events, challenge participants receive 200 bonus points for attending. There are already close to 60 events in the calendar, and many more are anticipated throughout the campaign. From â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;brain boostâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hikes, healthy lifestyle days, geocaching events, various guided hikes, and a Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day yoga event â&#x20AC;&#x201C; there is something suitable for every age and fitness level!

MVC is hosting two Healthy Hikes events at the Mill of Kintail Conservation Area for you to earn bonus points: the Heritage Trail Run for Bev already held on May 4 and free admission Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day on June 16. The event codes will be posted on site during the events so you can collect your bonus points online when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re done. Remember all hikes at our conservation areas are worth points. There are $2,500 worth of great prizes up for grabs for challenge participants and the grand prize, a $1,200 Merrell gift card, was very generously donated by Merrell themselves. For more information on Healthy Hikes, the available prizes, challenge rules and regulations, events, and how to participate, visit www. Happy hiking!

Conservation Ontario is the network of 36 conservation authorities, local watershed management agencies that deliver services and programs that protect and manage water and other natural resources in partnership with government, landowners and other organizations. Conservation authorities promote an integrated watershed approach balancing human, environmental and economic needs. Conservation authorities are organized on a watershed basis.

petroleum products. Every piece of plastic ever made in our lifetime, still exists. They do not decompose; they photodegrade. The sun’s rays eventually break them down into small toxic pieces, which contaminate the soil and water and get into our food chain when animals ingest them. Organized by the MVFN Environmental Issues Committee, chaired by Blakeney resident Theresa Peluso, an anti-plastic bag campaign will be launched in early May and will include distribution of a fact sheet on the issue, surveying current users and distributors of plastic bags, conducting a poster contest within schools, and publishing a final report. This MVFN environmental issues campaign is designed to encourage the use of reusable cloth bags. A constant message of the campaign will be to simply avoid buying goods that come in plastic bags. Another thrust is to encourage local businesses not to use them in the first place. As the campaign unfolds, the group will be seeking volunteers to help get the message across. If you are willing to assist, contact Theresa Peluso at reduceplasticcampaign@ Submitted by the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists.

EMC News – Canadians use up to 15 million plastic bags every year and the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists (MVFN) plan to do something about it in this area. MVFN’s major concern is centred on what these bags are doing to the environment when disposed of. If you tied together every plastic bag we use annually in Canada, they would circle the globe 55 times. Many of them end up in our watershed, plugging drains and sewers and creating an unsightly mess. Worse still, they cause great harm to wildlife. Birds get tangled up in them, especially water birds; turtles and other mammals ingest them; whales and dolphins confuse them for jellyfish and gobble them up. Some fish think they are frog eggs and eat them. The result is usually suffocation or acute indigestion leading to death. Masses of plastic bags are strewn all over the countryside. Not necessarily dumped or discarded by people, a large amount of plastic is wind-borne from landfill and construction sites. Canadian plastic bags have been found as far away as Scotland. Flotillas of plastic bags are found in the middle of our oceans and ocean currents slowly carry them on to other shores. Plastic bags are made from non-renewable

EMC News – The Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario (CDSBEO) is pleased to announce that Terron James, a grade 12 student at Notre Dame Catholic High School in Carleton Place, has been elected as the next Catholic student trustee for the CDSBEO. James will be assuming the role from current Catholic student trustee, Sean Fry, a student at St. Mary Catholic High School in Brockville. After being elected at the Student Senate meeting on April 26, James remarked, “I am ecstatic to have been elected Catholic student trustee for the upcoming school year. I look forward to working with the members of the Student Senate, and the board, to discover what we can accomplish.” Director of Education, William J. Gartland commented on the election results.

Children’s Resources on Wheels marks 25th anniversary DEAR EDITOR: We would like to recognize and say thank you to our volunteers who give their energy, skills, and time freely to Children’s Resources on Wheels (CROW). This year, CROW is celebrating its 25th anniversary. Over the last 25 years, CROW has been fortunate to have volunteers in many and varied capacities. Since we are celebrating CROW’s birthday, we thought it would be appropriate to look at what has happened or changed in the last 25 years or quarter century. Many things we take for granted today were not invented or available 25 years ago and have changed our world considerably. For instance: we can communicate with people on the other side of the world in real time from practically anywhere; we can write something and communicate it to billions of people by using text messages, Facebook, or Twitter; we do not have to rely on the mail; if we want to learn something or find out about something, we don’t have to research it in books at our local library; we can do a Google

search and find out more information than we know what to do with; watch world events unfold in real time rather than waiting for the 6 p.m. news; we can view products, shop, and compare prices without leaving our house or chair; and we can surf the web, download music, and watch movies all via the Internet. We don’t need to have a television anymore. However, the list we just provided does not include:the face to face conversations; the personal contact with people; the expressions on people faces whether they be smiles, frowns, or concern; or the sounds of laughter and compassion. This is why we feel it is so very important to recognize and pay tribute to the people who serve and volunteer at CROW now and over the last 25 years. Thank you past and present volunteers!

COMMENTARY Go exploring EMC Editorial – Now that the nice weather seems as if it’s here to stay, it’s the perfect time to rediscover what our local communities throughout Lanark, Leeds and Grenville have to offer. The buds on the trees have opened, flowers are beginning to bloom and our towns are jam packed with events to take in. The season has breathed life back into the areas in which we live. A big indication of this are the numerous yard and garage sales popping up throughout the region. Merrickville recently held its community-wide garage sale, giving people an opportunity to rid themselves of items that collected dust over the winter months. Another opportunity will be May 25 when the Light Up the Night hosts its annual garage sale in the Levi Home Hardware parking lot in Almonte. The rebirth of spring is evident in other municipalities as well. North Grenville is getting set for its annual celebration of spring, the Dandelion Festival, set to take place the final weekend in May; and Smiths Falls is preparing for the revitalization of their popular summer tradition, the newlynamed Rideau Rural Roots Festival in July. Carleton Place is also putting the finishing touches on their unique Wine’d Around Downtown event May 25. The season culminates with the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay for Life fundraisers June 7 and 8 in Mississippi Mills (Gemmill Park) and Smiths Falls (Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute). Even if you aren’t participating, enjoy an evening of entertainment, capped off with the emotional luminary ceremony when the sun goes down. Whether you’re enjoying an afternoon along the Rideau Canal or in Perth’s Stewart Park, visiting the Merrickville Ruins or spending a Saturday at the farmers’ markets throughout the area, get out and explore what our communities have to offer.

Each day of the week was marked with special chores EMC Lifestyle – My sister Audrey said she was tired of the same old routine day in and day out. Since I was so very young when she made this comment, I had no idea what routine was. So I asked Audrey to print the word in my scribbler, and say what the word meant. Even at that early age I was very interested in words, and kept a record in a fat scribbler whenever I heard one I hadn’t heard before. My scribbler was getting quite thick, and even though I went over it often, I would forget what a word meant, and Audrey would have to explain it to me all over again. Which didn’t please her in the least! Well, Audrey could say what she liked about routine and how bored she was with it. But I liked how our lives on the farm were so orderly, and as far as I was concerned, I wanted nothing to change. Every Monday morning, our beds didn’t have to be made up, because that was the day, the sheets were stripped, and Mother did the washing. It didn’t matter if the snow was coming down in buckets, or it was raining so hard you could barely see the

barns, Monday was wash day. And I knew that on Monday night there would be fresh sheets on our beds, taken right off the clothesline and smelling of spring and the outdoors. That night, I didn’t mind in the least going to bed. And every Tuesday, when we came from school, we could smell in the kitchen, the scent of newly ironed clothes. Shirts would be draped over chairs, tea towels stacked neatly in a pile on the kitchen table ready to be put in the drawer in the back-tothe-wall cupboard. Even our pinny aprons would be ironed and hanging on the hook by the stove. Without fail, Tuesday was the day the ironing was done. And our mealtimes never varied. Breakfast was the very same every morning. Big bowls of porridge, fried potatoes and back bacon, and thick slices of homemade bread slathered with butter and jam. Dinner was always at noon hour. There was no such thing as lunch in the middle of the day. The routine of mid-day dinner never varied.

one or two different vegetables and an ample piece of homemade pie. After all, his work had begun at dawn, and even though his breakfast was ample, by noon hour it had worn off, and he was more than ready for what he called ‘a decent meal’. The routine continued at supper... always there was meat and potatoes but dessert would be preserves. And we never went to bed without something to tide us over to morning. I couldn’t imagine this routine being broken. This was all part of our life on the farm. Friday night was always the time to get ready for peddling Mother’s wares in Renfrew the next day.

and was one of my favourite evenings in the entire week. Audrey and I would gather the eggs from the hen house, and Audrey would wash them in warm soapy water, and I would dry them with a clean flour bag tea towel. Mother would weigh them into their sizes on the egg scale...small, medium and large, and we would carefully pack them into 11-quart baskets. Mother’s sticky buns would be wrapped in wax paper, freshly plucked chickens singed, and laid out on the bake table on a clean white sheet, ready to be packed in the Model T in the morning. And every Saturday without fail, Mother headed into Renfrew to go door-to-door with what we had prepared the night before. Perhaps this was why Audrey complained so much about the routine. She was usually left at home to clean the house, whereas I was allowed to go with Mother. That didn’t mean I was spared from Saturday chores however. When we got back to the farm, it was my job to churn the butter in the middle of the kitchen.

ny, sitting on a straight-back chair, I plunged the round wood disc into the fresh cream, waiting for the change in the sound coming from deep in the churn, when I would know that my labour had paid off, and soon there would be butter. Saturday was butter day, and that never varied. And Saturday was bake day. Bread would be ready for the oven by the time we got back from Renfrew, pie crusts would be filled, and always a slab cake would be at the ready just in case neighbours dropped in for a game of euchre that night. Every night, without fail, we had our prayers. They were said on our knees around Mother who sat in the rocking chair in the corning of the big upstairs hall, which my sister Audrey and I called our bedroom. And our prayers never varied. Sometimes we prayed so long, I would doze off with my head on Mother’s knee. And another day would be done. Another day, just like the one before it. Marked with its special chores for that day of the week. And Audrey would lament again about the boredom of it all. • Advertising rates and terms and conditions are according to the rate card in effect at time advertising published. • The advertiser agrees that the publisher shall not be liable for damages arising out of errors in advertisements beyond the amount charged for the space actually occupied by that portion of the advertisement in which the error occurred, whether such error is due to negligence of its servants or otherwise... and there shall be no liability for non-insertion of any advertisement beyond the amount charged for such advertisement. • The advertiser agrees that the copyright of all advertisements prepared by the Publisher be vested in the Publisher and that those advertisements cannot be reproduced without the permission of the Publisher. • The Publisher reserves the right to edit, revise or reject any advertisement.

Planning meals can help save time and money By SARAH PATTERSON and DIANNE OICKLE

Planning meals can save time Planning even just a few days worth of healthy meals and snacks will save you time later in the week when it comes to shopping and meal preparation. Use leftovers in your meal plan. For example, cook a whole chicken Monday night, and have a chicken stir-fry Tuesday night. This will make sure food doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go to waste and will save you time during meal preparation the next day. Make a grocery list. Check to see what you already have on hand in the kitchen, and make a quick list of what you will need from the store. Knowing exactly what you need to buy can help make your grocery trip more efficient.

Visit our website at for more information on this workshop and for links to many other online and community resources. You can also contact the Leeds, Grenville, and Lanark District Health Unitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s toll-free Health Action Line at 1-800-660-5853 or 613-3455685. Sarah Patterson, is a Dietetic Intern and Dianne Oickle, is a MSc, RD, Registered Dietitian/Public Health Nutritionist with the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit.

A plan for when you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a plan It is not always realistic to have a meal planned for every day of the week. For those inevitable nights when you have not been able to pre-plan a meal, have a backup plan. Have an â&#x20AC;&#x153;emergency meal kitâ&#x20AC;? stored in your pantry that contains a few ingredients that can quickly be combined to make a meal. An example of an â&#x20AC;&#x153;emergency meal kitâ&#x20AC;? may be a bag of pasta, a can of tuna, a can of mushroom soup and some frozen veggies. These ingredients can be thrown together in a pinch to make a tuna noodle casserole. Having a back-up plan like this can save you from spending money on take-out! Plan to grow your own fruits and vegetables Start a backyard garden, join a community garden, or plant some indoor potted vegetables and herbs.

Planning meals can save money Having a grocery shopping plan can help you save money and prevent you from buying something you already have. Plan your meals around what is on sale at the stores you shop. Reading store flyers will help you save money and may also help spark meal ideas! Plan meals around what fruits and vegetables are in season as produce is often cheaper when in season, and will be fresher and tastier too! What is a complete meal? In order to get all the nutrients we need in a day, it is important to eat a variety of foods from all four food groups in Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Food Guide: Vegetables and Fruit, Milk & Alternatives, Meat & Alternatives, and Grain Products. To create a complete meal, simply include at least three out of the four food groups from Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Food Guide. For example, a peanut butter sandwich on whole grain bread with a glass of milk is a complete meal. A cheese omelet with a handful of carrot sticks is another example of a complete meal.

EMC Lifestyle – Recently we discussed a request from a reader looking to find out which new compact or sub-compact vehicle could actually be used for towing (the majority of carmakers no longer recommend these classes of cars for towing a trailer of any weight or size). One error in my response was regarding Honda. They did take the time to reply to my request for towing ratings and indicated that their Civic was rated to tow a trailer weighing up to 1,000 lb. My column indicated otherwise and I apologize for the error. However I did forward that information directly to our reader and he replied: “Thanks for the info Brian--I have now ordered a new Honda Civic.” Roger I had a chance on a recent warm and sunny Sunday to attend a great sustainability fair in North Grenville at the Municipal Centre in Kemptville. This event has been running for six years providing attendees with information on everything green from energy efficiency and generation to local foods to waste reduction, and horticulture and recreation. Last year for the first time, two electric vehicles were parked at the entrance and the interest and feedback from the public was enough to convince the organizers to bring a more developed display this year. So one of the arena ice surfaces was converted into display space and Chris Weissflog of EcoGen Energy helped co-ordinate a full slate of electric and gasoline/electric hybrid vehicles from manufacturers such as Nissan, Smart, Toyota, General Motors, Ford, and Tesla along with some privately owned e-bikes and all-electric autos. The new vehicle displays were staffed by local dealership consultants and were kept very busy answering questions from a steady stream of interested

Mother’s Day brunch to celebrate Salvation Army, beloved moms The Branch gearing up to serve delicious meals

EMC Events – The Salvation Army and one of Kemptville’s finest restaurants are teaming up once again this year for the annual Mother’s Day brunch this Sunday, May 12. As executive director Simon Downey explains, this year is extraordinarily special as they are also celebrating their 125th anniversary. But this year’s brunch comes with a carnival theme, set to take place at the North Grenville Municipal Centre. There are two seatings for the event – the first being at 10 a.m. and the second being at noon. The Branch Restaurant, known for its delicious Texasstyle dishes, will prepare a scrumptious breakfast with all the fixings – including eggs and frittata, bacon, ham, and sausage, home fries, pancakes and maple syrup, baked good, salad and fresh fruit, and coffee, tea and juice. There are also vegan and gluten-free options. “It will be a nice day out for moms, and for the whole family,” said Downey. The traditional breakfast is a way to celebrate mothers and to recognize how they’ve helped shape their family’s lives, said Downey. And while mom enjoys the food and entertainment by the Cowguys, a juggling and comedy act, as well as the company around the table, the children can indulge in a little activity too by playing on a bouncy castle and slide, or have their face painted.

The brunch is a way of saying “thank you” and showing them they’re cared for, he said Downey hopes the brunch attracts a few hundred families to the event to enjoy some time together as a community. Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door. Kids 12 and under pay their age. All proceeds from the brunch go towards the Salvation Army.

“It will be a nice day out for moms, and for the whole family.” SIMON DOWNEY EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Tickets are available by calling The Branch Restaurant at 613-258-3737 or the Salvation Army at 613-258-3583. A history of Mother’s Day The celebration of Mother’s Day began in the United States in the early 20th century, according to Wikipedia. Historically, it is a celebration honouring mothers and motherhood, maternal bonds, and their influence. It’s most commonly celebrated in March or May every year. The holiday of Mother’s Day was first celebrated in 1908 when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother in the United States. She started a campaign to get Mother’s Day as a recognized holiday across the country, and was successful in 1914. Mother’s Day became commercialized in 1920.

The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 212 held its annual awards dinner on Saturday, May 4. Guest speaker for the event - which featured great food and camaraderie - was Douglas Brunton. He gave a light-hearted presentation about the 80 years that the branch has been in existence and spoke of the many legion members who had worked so hard so that present day veterans could enjoy their legion as much as they did. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a time when we recognize those comrades who are deserving of our thanks for their contributions to our Branch and to the Legion in general,â&#x20AC;? he said. One person Brunton likes to quote from time to time is Yogi Berra. He felt some of Berraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quotes serve to illustrate what Branch 212 has accomplished over its 80-year history. For example: â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know where youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll end up somewhere else.â&#x20AC;? Brunton said his all-time favourite quote was: â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you get to a fork in the road take it,â&#x20AC;? he said adding, â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is my favourite because I think what Yogi meant was when an opportunity is presented, capitalize on it.â&#x20AC;? This, he felt was what the World War I veterans had done when they had the opportunity to start up the Le-

after the war ended that the opportunity to have its own meeting hall came up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The plans for a legion building began in 1952,â&#x20AC;? said Brunton. Brunton read from an article from the Advance that stated, â&#x20AC;&#x153;After a goodly number of years of hoping to secure a building of their own, the local Legion Branch of the Canadian Legion may now see their hopes come true as last week they made a purchase of an H hut from the army camp in Brockville and are intending to take it down and transport it immediately to Kemptville. â&#x20AC;&#x153; â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Legion has been granted a site, by council, at the east entrance of the Riverside Park and hope to start erecting the building as soon as the cement basement is Put a composter laid and expect the building in your will measure around 26 feet backyard or by 60 feet.â&#x20AC;? use your green By 1956 plans were bebin to reduce ing created for the building household of the upper legion hall.

Rotary Club cancels annual Canada Day parade President says she expects organization will be back for July 1, 2014 EMC News - The Rotary Club of Kemptville, regretfully, will not be able to host the Canada Day Parade this July. A May 6 press release from the Rotary Club stated, “The Rotary Club of Kemptville regrets to announce the cancellation of this year’s Rotary Canada Day Parade due in large part to current club commitments both in the community and abroad.” The club has organized the parade for many years and has brought joy to children and families in this community. A press release from the president of the Rotary Club of Kemptville, Anna Van Adrichem-Rochon stated, “A significant number

of members of the Rotary Club of Kemptville are participating in a European exchange toward the end of June. Most are staying on afterwards for personal travel and others are staying away to attend our international conference in Lisbon.” Making the situation even more difficult is that the chair of the parade committee, due to health concerns, will not be able to participate. “The organizing of a worthy parade for Canada Day is a major undertaking. Many volunteers are required to make the event safe, enjoyable, and well organized,” stated Adrichem-Rochon.

Despite the announcement, the Rotary Club of Kemptville plans to be back at organizing the Canada Day parade in 2014. “We wish to thank those companies and organizations who have participated with us in the past and we hope that parade entrants and spectators alike will be with us in the future.” “It is our intent to plan the parade for July 1, 2014 to coincide with the Municipality of North Grenville’s Canada Day festivities.” “The Rotary Club of Kemptville does apologize for the disappointment but trust that all will raise a flag and enjoy a safe and happy Canada Day,” their press release stated.

Strawberries are more easily dried in home food dehydrators than blackberries (right).


EMC News - The following is part of an ongoing series. For as long as I can remember, there has always been something special about blueberries. At family gatherings when we have blueberry pie, my parents invariably pull out the old stories of me tying into a basket of blueberries when I was four. My techniques for eating them have hopefully become somewhat more refined with age, and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tend to get covered in the blue staining juice nearly as much anymore. Over the years, my appreciation of natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efficiency has definitely increased when looking at the structure of most berries and other fruits. The whole purpose of fruits and berries is protecting the seeds to ensure the ongoing sustainability of the plant. Berries surround the seeds with a moist fleshy material to provide nutrients and water when the seeds begin to grow. To keep the moisture around the seed, many berries are covered with a waxy cuticle material. While the cuticle is extremely good at keeping the moisture in, it is a challenge for anyone who wants to dry the berries and get the moisture out, especially while keeping them whole. Previously in our lab, we have tried washing the waxy deposit off the skins with various solvents in an attempt to make them more permeable to moisture. Some very harsh solvents that would ultimately be totally unsuitable for actual food usage were tested out of academic curiosity. They yielded little or no success. We even tried rolling certain berries on a bed of fine needles to create small puncture holes for the moisture to escape. The only thing we succeeded in doing was frustrating the living daylights out of our research student. Throughout all this, there was the constant reminder of how well nature takes care of protecting the seeds. When drying berries at home, you always need to keep in mind that you are fighting natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s desire to retain moisture. In the case of cranberries, it is a simple matter to cut the berries in half

prior to drying. Blueberries can be â&#x20AC;&#x153;checkedâ&#x20AC;? by placing them in a strainer and immersing them briefly in boiling water until the outer skin develops small cracks. Care must be taken not to let the berries split open, and you will need to do a few practice runs to get things right. Cherries have a very tough skin which should be punctured several times with a sharp toothpick even after pitting the cherry and cutting it in half. Of the various berries that I have dried, my personal favourite is strawberries. The delicate aroma during the drying process is very enticing. Strawberries dry wonderfully well when cut into thin slices (about 0.5 cm or a quarter of an inch thick) which maximizes the surface area exposed to the warm air during drying. Berries which are more segmented like blackberries or mulberries really need to be mashed and dried on a solid tray. Raspberries, which do not have a waxy layer, will dry whole if the hollow side is placed downwards on the mesh tray of the dryer. If you have a home food dehydrator, it is best to avoid excessively high temperatures which will potentially reduce the quality of your dried products. An air temperature of about 55 degrees C (approximately 130 degrees C) works quite well. At this temperature, sliced strawberries will take about 8 to 16 hours to dry. Blueberries and cherries can take up to 24 hours to dry, and halved cranberries may take 10 to 14 hours to reach their final desired level of moisture. In all cases, there should be no visible moisture in the final product and the texture should be firm or leathery. Dried berries can be used in a variety of ways. They can be mixed with other dried fruits and nuts to make an enjoyable trail mix, or blended with breakfast cereal to add additional flavour. There are numerous books and online references available if you ever want to try your hand at this relatively straight-forward technique of preserving berries for future enjoyment.

Fiberal mistakes, our money


MC Editorial - Well, turns out that father doesn’t always know best. Former “Premier Dad” (aka Dalton McGuinty, remember him?) has admitted to Queen’s Park’s justice committee this week that it was his decision to shutter gas plants in Oakville and Mississauga, costing Ontario taxpayers untold billions. Now, at least he admitted that he and his government were wrong in pushing the plants in the first place and that, well, turns out that the people of those two communities were right. Easy for him to admit that now. (In fairness, both the Tories and NDP also promised to cancel the plants.) What is galling is that while the Liberals had passed laws requiring that industrial wind turbines be located at least 550 metres from homes, did no one in Toronto think that there should be a similar rule about gas plants? The fertilizer plant explosion in West, Texas, last month, was tragic, and similar questions were raised about why such a facility was located so close to a residential area. But at least in Texas, many such plants already existed in what had originally been rural areas which, in time, with urban sprawl, became surrounded by homes. Mississauga and Oakville, by comparison, are already built-up areas. McGuinty had the gall to tell the committee that no children would now have to go to school beside a gasfired station. Oh, will somebody please think of the children? Oh please, how about scuttling the plan at the drawing board stages instead? Who would look at this plan and think that it was a good idea to have a gas plant in the vicinity of a school? This fiasco once again highlights all the

things that were wrong with McGuinty’s years in office - no regard for taxpayer’s money, a sheer bullheaded “I know best,” mentality, and weak leadership. Now we are all on the hook for $585 million. The auditor general has already stated that cancelling the Mississauga plant cost $275 million during the 2011 election, about $85 million more than the Liberals have admitted to. The Oakville gas plant cancellation cost all of us $310 million, not the $40 million that the Liberals claimed. McGuinty says he didn’t know it would cost as much. This is complete balderdash, according to the head of the Ontario Power Authority, who has testified that the government knew, at the time, that the costs would be higher. Guess it depends on who you believe. Finance Minister Charles Sousa delivered a budget so heavily laden with $1 billion in gifts for the Ontario NDP - buying their support with our money - that leader Andrea Horwath must have thought it was Christmas morning. Drummond Report be damned, we need to keep staving off an election in a desperate attempt to cling to power, rather than face an election we know we will likely lose. Sousa said that 60 per cent of the Drummond Report has been implemented. And yet, we are still significantly in the hole for the foreseeable future. Quebec next door is taking serious steps to reduce its deficit before Ontario will. They face many of the same problems we do, with a declining manufacturing economy, and they also have a minority government. And yet, they are taking the deficit seriously, with their Finance Minister, Nicolas Marceau, promising a zero deficit by 2014. It’s a sad day when Quebec’s separatist government is doing a better financial job balancing the books than we are.

Sometimes the cows never come home


MC Lifestyle - Last week we had a bit of excitement in our neck of the woods. It all started with a phone call. My youngest, Paulina, called me from her car. “What colour are our cows?” she asked. “Do we have any white ones?” Now, Paulina doesn’t spend much time with the animals but I’m pretty sure she knows we don’t have any white cows. But she also knows our farm animals like to make a game out of escaping and wandering down the road, so she was right to call us. “We have some with white faces but no pure white cows, no. Why?” “Because there’s a bunch of them here standing in the middle of Patterson Corners Road.” I figured the hobby farmers on the road had some runaways, and I didn’t think much of it. Until the following evening, when the Farmer and I were coming home from town. There was the entire herd of runaway cows, standing in the middle of the field at the end of our road. We turned around and went to the nearest farmhouse, the Finlays’. Ray knew exactly whose cows they were. “Those are old Doc Hicks’ cows. He keeps them in the field near the Oxford

The Accidental Farmwife DIANA FISHER

Mills transfer station. He’s been looking for them up and down the roads here for two days.” Suddenly an image flashed in my memory. A sign on that field near the transfer station, stating ‘Keep gate closed. Cows inside.’ The pasture field was often used by remote-control plane enthusiasts. Maybe one of them had forgotten to lock the gate. In any case, the cows didn’t come home that night, or any night since. They wandered over to the next concession, and settled in a shady meadow. Unlike sheep, they aren’t afraid of the forest. They probably wandered in among the trees and became invisible in the high sun of midday. I’m not sure what they did for water; perhaps they found a drainage ditch to drink from somewhere in their travels.

Friday morning on my way to work I saw the cows again. They were lying in the early morning sun in the same spot as the night before. I took their picture, told them they were bad cows and they should go home before they get hit by a car or shot by the police. They just chewed their cud and blinked at me. I noticed they were huddled close together and thought they looked scared. Passing by the field they escaped from, I stopped and snapped a photo of the sign. Then I called the number. Carl answered and passed the phone to Doc Hicks, who said he was getting frustrated chasing these cows, and might just shoot them. I know it’s a difficult situation when cows escape, because you don’t want them out on the roads where they might cause a collision. But I didn’t want them to get shot, either. “Well, that would be sad,” I said quietly. To which he replied, “excuse me but who are you, anyway?” I was feeling a little sheepish and less than helpful so I just added my two cents before hanging up. “Have you tried Dennis Wilson, the drover? He got those bulls off the 416 when they escaped from Eastern Breeders, remember? He’s pretty good with

cattle…” Carl assured me that Dennis had been enlisted, and they were going to attempt to lure the cattle onto a truck by baiting them with an old Jersey cow. Now you see, I knew Dennis would have an idea. Dennis knows the way these animals think. It may take some ingenuity and patience to lure an animal but it’s much more effective than chasing it, in my experience. When our electric fence fails and my animals escape, I bring them home with sweet feed and apples. Works every time. By Saturday afternoon, Dennis and his Jersey cow had recaptured 9 of the

wanderers and sent them to the sale barn. Their owner didn’t want them back. And on Sunday morning, Carl called me to tell me the good news that the final 4 escapees had been caught and were also on their way to being sold. So the cows have an adventure story to tell their new friends at the sale barn, and no one – human or animal – was hurt in the making of this story. Once again, Dennis the drover saves the day.

Nanna My sister sent me this email tonight. It started me thinking about where it all started. First the email. As you know, I’ve been in a funk for the last wee while. The Boston bombing and other horrible events around the globe have made me wonder what on earth is this world coming to. However, today was a glorious, sunny day and I got up early and “took at it”. I had breakfast and then hopped in the car and went to the local garden centre. I spent a good hour or more just wandering around and picking up plants that looked like they wanted to come home with me. Just the moist, earthy smell of the place put a smile on my face. I came home and started weeding, planting, cleaning up beds and just revelled in the day. Hours went by and I just kept puttering away. I stopped for a coffee break and it hit me that I had been happy all day. I don’t know whether it was the sun after such a rainy spring or just getting my hands in the soil that did it. It was therapeutic. I am grubby, tired and my nose is sun burned but it was a good day. It will take me a while to get the dirt from under my finger nails. My sister and most of my cousins are gardeners. Where did that come from? It came from our grandmother. We called her Nanna. She and her husband Sid shared a small bungalow on Centre St. in Picton Ontario. It was the centre of the universe at Christmas time. It always smelled of lavender and

baked bread. She baked bread almost every day. She was no bigger than a minute but I can still see her kneading the bread. Her hands didn’t seem up to the task. Her garden included raspberries, rhubarb, more hollyhocks than you could count and a huge cherry tree in the back yard. When the cherries were ripe she would make pies, and could she ever make pies. As the summer was winding down her sun room was filled with preserves and jam. You haven’t lived until you tuck into a slice of bread still warm from the oven, slathered with real raspberry jam. It’s a time I miss. We’re all so busy now. Not too many folks baking their own bread anymore. We’re quite content to pay three dollars for a loaf of bread that turns to mush when you butter your toast - and raspberry jam should be a little tart, not the sickly sweet red paste we’ve come to accept as jam. Our Nanna loved her garden and loved her grandchildren even more. It has been a legacy that continues. I don’t think she had any idea the impact her life would have on future generations. We love to garden, we love to get together, we love to eat well and we love our kids. Nanna gardened well. If you have any gardening questions email us at the link below.

DICK Elaine Louise Dick (Maiden Name Dean) Born in Toledo, Ontario on January 29th, 1935 - Passed away in Lanark, Ontario on May 2nd, 2013, Elaine, who cherished her family, passed away at home with her husband, daughter, and grandson, at the age of 78 years old, following a difficult battle with cancer and will be sadly missed. Elaine had 12 brothers and sisters, and was the second oldest daughter of the late Albert Dean and Nellie (Catchpole) of Plum Hollow, Ontario. When Elaine was in her early 30s, she left Ontario and travelled to Didsbury, Alberta to marry Calvin Jack Dick. For 40 years, she worked a variety of jobs alongside her husband on a small mixed beef farm. Elaine had fond memories of being a caregiver in the Didsbury Region and described it as a job that gave her much joy. Prior to her move west, she spoke often of her time spent as a “mender” at the Glenayr Knitting Mill in Lanark, Ontario where she worked after her mother’s death when she returned home, from Toronto, to help her father care for her younger siblings. In 2007, Elaine and Calvin moved back to Lanark, Ontario where she spent the last few years of her life surrounded by her siblings, numerous nieces, and nephews. She will be greatly missed by her immediate family. Elaine loved to dance, enjoyed music and concerts, playing cards, was a gifted knitter and canner, and took every opportunity to travel to various places. She enjoyed spending time with her family, friends and was a dedicated grandmother. Elaine is survived by her husband Calvin, daughter Talva, and grandson Ethan. She is pre-deceased by her parents and siblings; Gerald, Joy, George, and Sharon. She is survived by her siblings Charles, Gary, Ross, David, Albert, Richard, Randy, and Debra. Elaine’s family would like to sincerely thank the compassionate staff from the Cancer Clinic at the Kingston General Hospital, the Palliative Care team from Saint Elizabeth’s Health Care, the Champlain Community Care Access Centre (CCAC), Red Cross Care Partners, Bayshore Home Health, and Dr. Azarat. We could not have been able to provide the care Elaine needed without you. A memorial service will be held on Sunday May 19th, 2013 at 2:00 pm, at the Blair and Son Funeral Chapel, Perth. Friends and family in Alberta who will be unable to attend the service in Ontario will have an opportunity to pay their respect during a memorial barbeque in the summer of 2013 in Didsbury, Alberta. The date of the service will be announced in the Didsbury Review at a later date. Donations can be made to the Palliative Care Division of either Saint Elizabeth’s or to the CCAC home health services.

DAWSON John “Craig” It is with extreme sadness that parents John and Mary Dawson, with brother Mark, announce the death of their 35 year old beloved son, John “Craig” Dawson, on Wed., May 1, 2013, at his home in Plano Texas, in the arms of his loving wife, Catrina. Craig suffered with Stage IV Malignant Melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer. He fought a courageous battle for four years. There is joy in knowing that he is at peace with his Lord and Saviour in heaven. Craig was born on Dec. 25, 1977, at the Riverside Hospital in Ottawa. He married his wife, Catrina Gilchrist, on Oct. 19, 2002, in Milwaukee, Wis. They have one son, John “Truman” Dawson, age 4. He was predeceased by his grandparents, Dudley and Evelyn Craig of Kemptville, Carl Dawson of Winchester, and Aunt Kathy Craig of Brockville. Craig attended Commonwealth Public School in Brockville, where he was known as the “computer whiz kid,” and Thousand Islands Secondary School. He graduated from Carleton University in Ottawa with an Honours of Commerce Degree in 2000. In his summers, he enjoyed working with both Vriend Construction in Greely and D&C Masonry in Kemptville. After graduation, he was employed in New York City as vice-president of finance for AIESEC, United States. He was a member of the Society of Management Accountants of Ontario. After moving to Texas from Florida, he was a financial analyst for Xerox in Dallas. Craig was a handyman extraordinaire, a water safety instructor, an excellent cook, and a straight-faced amateur comedian. He loved to water ski at the cottage known as “Little Chesterville on the Rideau,” near Kemptville. His spiritual education began at Trinity United Church in Chesterville, and continued at both Brockville Wesleyan and Standard Churches. He was the bookkeeper at Cornerstone Wesleyan Church in North Gower. Craig and Catrina are members of the One Community Church in Plano. Craig’s faith guided his servant heart throughout his life, including his participation in Kairos Prison Ministry, and the Appalachia Service Project. A Memorial Service to worship God and celebrate Craig’s life will be held at Cornerstone Wesleyan Church, 6556 Prince of Wales Dr., North Gower on Sat., May 11. Visitation is at 1:30 pm with the service at 3 pm. Memorial donations may be made to the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation, the Kemptville District Hospital, or Cornerstone Wesleyan Church. Catrina will host another celebration of life on Tues., May 14 at 2 pm at Stonebriar Country Club in Frisco, Texas. Donations there are requested to go to the Mary Crowley Cancer Research Center. Craig has donated his body to the University of Texas for cancer medical research. Thanks to everyone for their outpouring of love and prayers.

“WE REMEMBER” Just inside the main entrance of the C.R. Gamble Funeral Home is a book of remembrance. Each day we turn a page in the book. The names of those we have served are inscribed on that date along with the year in which they passed away. It is our way of honouring and remembering a life that was lived. It is

also our way of saying “thank you” to the many families who have shown confidence in us since we came to Almonte in 1973. Some families are unable to visit this book on the anniversary of the death of those they love. For this reason we are proud to publish these names weekly as our way of saying…“We Remember”.

Walter (Wally) Pullen 1933-2012 It’s been a year since you’ve been gone and each day I miss you more. My Precious Love Sometimes I tell myself, that you’re not really gone. I feel your tender touch and no longer feel alone. I see us walking hand in hand like we use to do. It’s hard for me to accept… that your life on earth is through. There were so many dreams we had not yet fulfilled, all the hopes of a future that we were going to build. All our friends and family have been so very kind, they try hard to ease my broken heart and my troubled mind. But how can my heart be mended, when it has broken in two? Part of my heart is still on earth, the other part left with you. It is hard to see tomorrow, when I can’t accept today, Because the “Love of My Life” has been taken away. I will always miss you, Sweetheart, time will not erase the pain, All the raw emotions of losing you, words will never explain. I will cling to the warm feelings, you brought into my life, maybe somehow it will ease my confusion and emotional strife. Someday we will be rejoined in Heaven up above, but while I’m still on earth I will cherish every memory of our precious love. Somehow those precious memories will have to carry me through, Until the time comes for us to walk hand in hand for an eternity… together… me and you. Your loving wife Janet



CRAWFORD, Judy – January 1, 1948May 11, 2011. God looked around His garden, And found an empty place, He then looked down upon this earth, And saw your tired face. He put His arms around you, And lifted you to rest, God’s garden must be beautiful, He always takes the best. He knew that you were suffering, He knew you were in pain, He knew that you would never Get well on earth again. He saw that the road was getting rough, And the hills were hard to climb, So He closed your weary eyelids, And whispered, “Peace be thine.” It broke our hearts to lose you, But you didn’t go alone, For part of us went with you, The day God called you Home. In our hearts forever, Don, Mandy, Julie, Shelby, Kyla, Brianne, Blaire

Connected to your community

Jumpstart Day to be held at Canadian Tire May 25 EMC Events - The students at North Gower School believe in the community concept. They work together as a team, whether they are in kindergarten or Grade 5. They believe in the ideals of community spirit and therefore participate in many activities to assist others. Each school year, they raise money for groups like UNICEF, collect toys for Toy Mountain and collect non-perishable food items for the North Gower Food Bank. They sold home-baked cookies for Canadian Cancer Society, participated in National Denim Day and National Day of Pink. But for the fourth year they will be selling Freezies for “Jumpstart” at Canadian Tire. They are the only school in the area to raise money for this cause. The Spirit Committee chose Jumpstart because they wanted to support an organization close to home and since sport is such a big part of the student’s lives, they chose to give other children the chance to play. We see it as equipping kids for life, because participation

in organized sport and recreation increases a child’s chance for success in life. They discover and participate. They gain self-confidence. They develop self-esteem. They learn leadership skills. Their lives become richer. For three years now they have helped increase our local budget, money raised

during Freezie days is matched by the Jumpstart Charity program to help local youth. There is no question that the students of North Gower Marlborough Public School respect their school and the global community. Teacher Ann Noonan asked the board for special permission this year to run this fundraiser considered an extra

Hammering out a budget the best way to find a trustworthy person who can do quality work at a reasonable price. You can also obtain invaluable advice from specialists in hardware or renovation stores. The quality and quantity of materials chosen will also have a huge impact on the cost of the project. If money is no object, you could renovate everything in one go. If your budget is more modest, you could go more slowly, at your own pace, one room at a time. Be sure to get all the information you need to make an enlightened decision. Write everything down and compare the different options that have been suggested. Avoid spur of the moment decisions that you could end up regretting later on, and be especially careful about going over budget. The important thing to remember is to take the time to make rational choices, while keeping in mind your tastes and budget.

This offer cannot be used in conjunction with any other North Star promotion, deal or discount.


How do I calculate how much my renovation project will cost? Now there’s a question that requires a great deal of thought! Obviously there are many different answers to this question, depending on what type of project you have in mind and the quality of materials you can budget for. Do you want to demolish everything and start from scratch? Replace the plumbing and the electricity? Or simply change the furniture and the appliances to freshen up some rooms and give them a more up-to-date look? Your budget will also depend on whether you plan to hire a professional to do the work or if you do it yourself — sometimes both options are possible. Hiring manpower will increase the cost, but using a pro can prevent months of lost time and space at home. If you decide to hire someone, ask for recommendations from family, friends, and work colleagues. That is

Explore the works of local artisans at Brooke Valley Spring Tour May 18 to 20 EMC Events – The area known as Brooke Valley, 15 minutes west of Perth, was resettled in the late 1960s by young people seeking a quiet back-to-the-land lifestyle in which to live and raise their children. Trendsetters without knowing it, they grew their own local organic food and lived simply. Learning from the farmers living around them, they reduced, re-used and recycled long before it became popular. Over the ensuing years, most residents of this area made their living as artists, carpenters and teachers. They have contributed to many dramatic, artistic, literary and musical events in Perth and the surrounding area. When these folks needed something they did not have, they created it. When parents wanted a familycentered, cooperative school with a strong emphasis on creativity, they formed Brooke Valley School. This school has been successfully running for over 35 years. Employment sometimes being hard to find, the local artists opened a cooperative art gallery for their wares, the Riverguild Fine Crafts, an excellent store located on Gore Street in Perth, also in existence for 35 years. Later, the Perth Autumn Studio Tour was launched to showcase the work of local artists on display in their own studios. The Brooke Valley Spring Tour followed this long line and got underway in 2007. The Brooke Valley Spring Tour is now in its seventh year and takes place Victoria Day weekend, May 18 to 20. It features the work of many wonderful artists whose work is gathered in two main locations just three kilometres from each other. Tour goers can enjoy free chamber music concerts twice daily at studio 2, partake of delicious desserts and beverages at studio 3, and buy locally grown annuals and perennials sold by the parents of Brooke Valley

The Brooke Valley Spring Tour kicks off its seventh season May 18 to 20 and will feature artists at three different stops throughout the area, including the works of painter September Scribailo, left, and the musical stylings of Richard Hoenich and his Chamber Music Concerts, above. Submitted photos

School also at studio 3. A map and detailed descriptions of the artists work can be found on the website but for the readers benefit, here is a brief taste of what can be experienced. At the home and studio of potter Rita Redner (studio 1), Redner will have her beautiful and functional

stoneware pottery. Familiar guests are Barb Mullally and Robert Pauly. Mullaly’s passion for the creative process is evident in her work. It reflects her love for jewelry design and fabrication, and her enjoyment in solving technical challenges. Pauly is best known for his fanciful cocktail hats decorated with feathers and handmade silk flowers.

He also makes art quilts that explore the use of colour. New this year at studio 1 is Diane Falvey of Stony Brae Farm with her tasty, homemade preserves, jams and jellies made from fresh in-season ingredients grown on her farm or locally sourced. Her tasty products are noncertified organic and contain no additives or preservatives.

Studio 2 is the location of the Chamber Music Concerts. Lead by bassoonist and conductor Richard Hoenich, the concerts are free of charge and will be held twice daily at 1:30 and 3 p.m. They offer an array of chamber music selections by a diverse group of musicians and will vary each day. Parking is available down the hill from the studio. The third studio features artists, food and plants. This is the home and studio of Anne Chambers, who produces functional pottery for everyday use and special occasions glazed in colours reflecting her rural environment. Guests include September Scribailo with her encaustic paintings, natural beeswax, damar resin, and pigments. Anais Fritzlan also returns this spring with her pleasing and practical purses and bags. A new addition to studio 3 is Susanne Leduc, a jeweller working in the newest jewelry metal, niobium, a lightweight, modestly priced alternative to gold for people with metal sensitivities that can be coloured. Studio 3 is also the location of the plant sale, a great place to buy your bedding plants while supporting Brooke Valley School at the same time. Desserts and beverages provided by Anna Lianga will be served in a café-style setting on a delightful screened-in porch. Her tasty offerings include gluten and vegan options and there will be organic coffees and teas available. Altogether, this tour is a wonderful outing for the day, an opportunity for a picturesque drive through the country, with sights, sounds and tastes for everyone. We hope to see you there.

Pivotal time for one of Canada’s closest friends comes and goes thank Canada for the significant role played by the Canadian Army in helping free Holland from five years of Nazi occupation. Tulip festival The gift of tulip bulbs was the catalyst for one of the best known and most colourful events in Canada’s capital city, the annual Canadian Tulip Festival in OttawaGatineau. This year’s festival began Friday and concludes on Victoria Day (Monday, May 20). Certainly the Dutch royals have never forgotten the kindness of Canada and its people during the painful period in which they were forced from their homeland and sent overseas for their own safety. Princess Margriet is a major link between the two countries. She has visited the land of her birth on numerous occasions. Margriet has been in Ottawa many times. Last year she received an honorary doctorate from McMaster University in Hamilton. I had the experience of seeing and photographing Margriet. But that was in Holland and not Canada. My wife Kathleen and I had the honour of accompanying a group of World War II veterans from Carleton Place (where we reside), Lanark County and Ottawa to ceremonies in The Netherlands in May 1995. The occasion was the 50th anniversary of the liberation of Holland and the 50th anniversary of the end of the Second World War in Europe. Princess Margriet was among the dignitaries who attended a special service of remembrance at Groesbeek Canadian War Cemetery near Nijmegen in southeastern Holland (near the German border) on May 6, 1995. More than 2,300 Canadians killed during the Dutch campaign, including a number from Carleton Place, Lanark County and communities across eastern Ontario are interred at Groesbeek. I was covering the WW II anniversary events in Holland for the newspaper group I worked for at the time. I distinctly remember taking Margriet’s photo as she walked past our position (no more than a metre away) on a sunny, hot spring afternoon. The princess was in the company of her husband Pieter van Vollenhoven Jr., a lawyer who, until recently, chaired the Dutch Safety Board. The couple have been married for 46 years. Their four sons all carry the title Prince of Orange-Nassau which is the official designation for the Dutch royal house. In the days leading up to the investiture of King Willem-Alexander, the streets of Amsterdam were awash in


orange, the national colour. The date of the ceremonies was chosen to coincide with ‘Queen’s Day’ in Holland, April 30. Queen’s Day has always been an excuse for partying in Holland. The investiture provided even more reason for celebration. It’s estimated nearly a million people joined the street party in Amsterdam last Tuesday with bands playing and a carnival atmosphere pervading the

country’s largest city and constitutional capital. Earlier in the day an estimated 25,000 jammed Dam Square to see their new monarch in person. Most were dressed in the colour of the House of Orange or they had donned orange hats, wigs or pretend crowns. As the former Queen Beatrix stepped on to the balcony of the Royal Palace her eyes welled with tears. The 46-year-old was accompanied by his wife Maxima, a former investment banker from Argentina who is Holland’s new queen. Some controversy surrounded the marriage in 2002 because Maxima’s father served in Ar-

gentina’s military dictatorship 30 years earlier. Today polls show she is even more popular than her husband! During the official ceremony held in the 600-year-old De Nieuwe Kerk (or New Church) the king swore an oath to uphold the Dutch constitution. The monarch is not officially crowned although a crown and other trappings of the position were on display during the ceremony. The Dutch throne was stripped of its political influence by an act of parliament last year. Among the dignitaries on hand for the much anticipated event were Britain’s king in waiting Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, the Dutchess of Cornwall.

Canada was represented by Governor General David Johnston and his wife Sharon. My memories of The Netherlands are of a clean country, with an efficient transport system and picturesque farms and communities. It is a nation all Canadians should visit if at all possible. Because no one is more popular in Holland than Canadians! By sheltering members of their royal family and helping free the country from tyranny Canadians earned a permanent place in the hearts of the Dutch.

EMC Lifestyle – The tulips are blooming in Ottawa and The Netherlands has a new monarch, the first king to rule the tiny European nation since 1890. There is a very real connection of course! Newly-crowned King Willem-Alexander is the son of former Queen Beatrix who formally abdicated last Tuesday (April 30) after 33 years in the mainly ceremonial role. It wasn’t the same kind of abdication that rocked Great Britain in the 1930s. King Edward VIII voluntarily gave up the throne in order to marry “Mrs. Simpson.” The twice divorced Wallis Simpson caused a scandal when she stole the heart of England’s monarch. Government and public opposition prompted by the king’s intention to marry Simpson (thus establishing her as his consort) eventually forced Edward’s hand. He agreed to step aside in favour of his younger brother Albert. The father of the present Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Albert was crowned King George VI. By comparison the situation in Holland last week was very deliberate and well planned. Nor is abdication unprecedented there. Princess Beatrix (she reverts to her birth title) has followed in the footsteps of her mother, Queen Juliana and her grandmother, Queen Wilhelmina. Princess Beatrix, 75, has simply retired. So in this case the word “abdication” carries a much softer tone than it did in Britain in 1936. The Canadian connection to the Dutch royal family was once well known, even familiar, to most here. In our “modern world” that is probably not the case anymore. The teaching of history – even modern history – has taken a beating in Canada in recent times! For those who aren’t familiar with the story I will explain. In 1940 a young Princess Beatrix and her sister Princess Irene fled the Nazi occupation of Holland. In the company of their mother, Crown Princess (later queen) Juliana they crossed the Atlantic where they lived in exile in Ottawa until the end of the Second World War in 1945. Beatrix’s sister, Princess Margriet, was born at the Ottawa Civic Hospital in 1943. The maternity unit was proclaimed “extraterritorial” by the Canadian government so that Margriet could be born a citizen of The Netherlands. Following the family’s return to Holland, Queen Wilhelmina gave Canada a gift of 100,000 tulip bulbs, the familiar national flower of The Netherlands. The gift was given to express the gratitude of the Dutch royals for their safe exile in Ottawa as well as to

Solid cast helps latest Iron Man film approach perfection MOVIE: Iron Man 3 STARRING: Robert Downey Jr. Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, and Ben Kingsley DIRECTOR: Shane Black RATING: PG EMC Entertainment - The modern superhero is far from perfect. They make mistakes and they deal with a host of issues. While the modern superhero may not be perfect Iron Man 3 is pretty close. After the events in New York Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is a mess. He spends all his time in his workshop, he can’t sleep and he’s beginning to have panic attacks. He needs to pull

himself together because there’s a new threat on the horizon. The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) is a terrorist who has made it his personal mission to teach America a lesson in fear. He strikes without warning and without mercy. All of America’s military and intelligence agencies have been focused on finding the Mandarin including James Rhodes (Don Cheadle) the newly minted Iron Patriot. Unfortunately no one can find him. Then the Mandarin blows up Mann’s Chinese Theater. Tony’s former bodyguard and friend, Happy (Jon Favreau), is caught in the explosion. In the heat of the aftermath Tony challenges the


Mandarin, and the Mandarin answers. Using attack helicopters and a small army of a new kind of super soldier the Mandarin attacks Tony’s home destroying everything. Tony manages to get Pepper (Gwyneth Paltrow) to safety, but he’s dragged down to the bottom of

the ocean. He escapes, but his amour is wrecked, his home is destroyed, and the world thinks he’s dead. If he’s going to defeat the Mandarin he needs to unravel the mystery of the Mandarin and find him. He’ll need to do it soon, because the Mandarin has Pepper, and he plans on striking again. Robert Downey Jr. was born to play Iron Man. We’ve seen the cocky billionaire superhero genius before, which Downey does so well, but he also gives us the vulnerable and flawed man inside the armour. I can’t imagine anyone else playing Pepper Potts. Gwyneth Paltrow abso-

lutely shines in this film. Her Pepper is the perfect partner to Downey’s Tony in every conceivable way. Ben Kingsley gives the Mandarin a whole new twist in a performance I can only describe as genius. Guy Pearce steps into the story as Aldrich Killian the head of Advanced Idea Mechanics or A.I.M. Killian is as brilliant as he is maniacal, and Pearce is perfect. Iron Man 3 is how you make superhero movies. Great effects, great action, great performances and a great story. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

Our vision for the event is for an inclusive gathering that will bring together young and old, Indigenous and non-Indigenous, church and secular in a shared journey of listening, learning, and reconciliation. The focus of the event is the history of the Algonquin Nation and its territory. It is a history that our community needs to know, as Lanark County exists on Algonquin Lands. Land settlement negotiations continue at this time between Algonquin leaders and the Government of Canada. There is value for all citizens in knowing and understanding the Algonquin history so that we are informed and can appreciate the

complexities, promote justice and support reconciliation during this process. Through education, such things as stereotypes, misinformation and misunderstandings, as well as fears, can be discarded and replaced with a new relationship grounded in mutual respect, friendship and understanding.

The Perth Studio Theatre is currently undergoing renovations to install an elevator in the building. Above, standing at the bottom of the elevator shaft, site supervisor J.P. Howard, right, shows Studio Theatre board president Bruce Neil the location of the rails and hydraulic cylinder. a most gracious and accommodating neighbour, permitting us to use his showroom as our main entrance and box office during performances, which, by the way, have continued unabated throughout the past two months in true show business tradition, the show must go on. Indeed, we haven’t missed a beat (or a performance) since the project began, thanks in large part to close coordination and planning on the part of the prime contractor, Guy Saumure and Son from Smiths Falls, and their on-site supervisor, J.P. Howard. We couldn’t have asked for a better team, and everyone is working to complete the project as quickly as possible while

minimizing inconvenience to our valued patrons. The successful run of ‘$38,000 for a Friendly Face’, which ended this past weekend, went off without a hitch despite the construction, and there are a number of upcoming musical events and a comedy show in May. So it’s business as usual at the Studio Theatre while we renovate to serve you better. Visit us in May for the best in musical entertainment, and watch for the announcement of a special event to mark the completion of our elevator installation and other renovations.

Province unveils plan for new infrastructure fund EMC News – The Ontario government plans to create a fund of $100 million for 2013 to 2014, to help small, rural and northern municipalities build roads, bridges and other critical infrastructure. The government recognizes the unique needs of these communities and the importance of high quality infrastructure in all areas of the province. This would also help support the local economy and construction jobs across Ontario. “Across the province, Ontario’s infrastructure challenges require tailored solutions. This fund would help small, rural and Northern com-

munities build the infrastructure they need, while creating jobs and building our economic prosperity,” said Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne. This investment would be the first step of a comprehensive transportation plan for rural and northern Ontario. Making sure every part of the province can move with ease is part of the government’s plan to create jobs and build a prosperous and fair Ontario. “Our government’s infrastructure investments are strengthening communities and creating jobs for people across Ontario. This important new

funding program would continue to stimulate local economies while helping municipalities take care of their most critical infrastructure priorities,” said Glen Murray, Minister of Infrastructure and Minister of Transportation. The new fund should be available by Oct. 1 and the province will consult on the components of a permanent program for roads, bridges and critical infrastructure investments in small, rural and northern municipalities. The government recognizes the importance of infrastructure and has invested approximately $85 billion in public infrastructure since 2003. THE EMC - 44 - Thursday, May 9, 2013

THE EMC - 51 - Thursday, May 9, 2013

1939 Chrysler Royal produces a decade of lasting memories EMC Lifestyle – Ralph Coles of Hamilton, Ontario, writes: “I learned to drive on a 1939 Chrysler and I courted my future wife of 62 years in that car.” The Coles lived in the northern Ontario town of Charlton, where they operated a hardware business. In the summer of 1939, shortly before the war, Ralph’s dad and mother, Newton and Beryl Coles, headed for New York City in their 1935 Dodge. When they reached Toronto, the transmission was howling and they looked around for a better car. They visited Ontario Automobile, a large Chrysler-Plymouth dealership in downtown Toronto, where they saw a dark blue 1939 Chrysler Royal sedan with fresh new styling in the showroom. They tried to buy it but the dealership would not give them enough for their trade-in. Returning to their motel or tourist cabin on the lakeshore, they spotted a Chrysler dealer sign at a one-bay service station. The owner/operator was a sub-contractor for Ontario Automobile and gave them a good trade-in for their ’35 Dodge. The Coles then bought from him the exact same car they had seen on the showroom floor in downtown Toronto! Their car had a Windsor factory price of $1,316 and Toronto delivered for $1,343. A flathead six of 245 cubic inches cranked out 100 horsepower. The Chrysler had 4-ply tires, and Mr. Coles, being a Goodyear dealer for many years, ordered a new set of 6-ply tires. Now they were off to New York.

At the outskirts of the city, young men jumped on their running boards and offered to drive them downtown. Dad kept driving himself right to Times Square. They visited the Empire State Building and the World’s Fair, and they saw a new gadget called television. Ralph and his mother frequently applied a special white paint to the tires, and these “whitewalls” looked just as good as real ones. When he was 14, Ralph was given permission to drive the Chrysler in the winter to get water from a river. The roads were slippery and Ralph slid into a cement flume sticking out from the power house. “My dad could say more to you with a look than with words and he was not amused,” recalls Ralph. “The Chrysler dealer in New Liskeard straightened and repaired the front fender, replaced the headlight, and straightened the bumper, all for $28, when some labourers made only a dollar a day.” Ralph’s dad kept the Chrysler for ten years, then traded it for a 1949 Studebaker Champion, but that’s another story… I’m always looking for more stories. Email or write Bill Sherk, 25 John St., P.O. Box 255, Leamington, ON N8H 3W2. Everyone whose story is published in this column will receive a free autographed copy of my latest book: “OLD CAR DETECTIVE FAVOURITE STORIES, 1925 to 1965.”


THE EMC - 52 - Thursday, May 9, 2013

Grateful for CHEO’s Support Jonathan was diagnosed with epilepsy, a complex neurological condition. Although some people with epilepsy have mild symptoms, others like 2WVI\PIV PI^M N]TTÆMLOML KWV^]T[QWV[ \PI\ TMI^M him unconscious. After the initial excitement that his seizures were under control thanks to medications commonly used to treat epilepsy, they returned with a vengeance. In fact during one such episode his parents had to call 911 to ensure their son would make it to CHEO as quickly as possible because he was struggling to breathe.

By Isabelle Mailloux Pulkinghorn

Jonathan Puerto was born healthy but a few weeks later began having seizures after he woke up from his naps. Worried, his parents Elizabeth Pineda and Jose Eduardo Puerto took him to their pediatrician who referred them to CHEO. Under the trusted care of Dr. Sharon Whiting, a pediatric neurologist, Jonathan underwent testing to identify the cause of the severe seizures he experienced on a daily basis, some of which left him ]VKWV[KQW][IVLÅOP\QVO\WJZMI\PM Tests revealed a lesion on the front left side of his brain, the result of a stroke he had likely suffered at birth. Then at six months of age, following additional testing to eliminate other conditions,

To make things worse, when Jonathan was six years old, he had a severe allergic reaction to the standard seizure drug that paramedics carry and went into anaphylactic shock.CHEO specialists were able to help him and to search for another medication to control his seizures.Dr. Whiting PMZ[MTN  KITTML XIZIUMLQK [MZ^QKM[ IVL WNÅKQIT[ I\ Ottawa Public Health to lobby for Jonathan. They _MZM^MZaZMKMX\Q^MIVLVW_PI^MI[XMKQÅKKIZM XTIV [XMKQÅKITTa \IQTWZML \W VMML[ IVL 2WVI\PIV now carries his new medication with him at all times to ensure paramedics can access it when he needs to be transported to CHEO. “That is the CHEO difference. Our son’s doctor took the time to not only identify the best medicine for him, but she made calls herself to various agencies to ensure they’d use this new medication to keep our son safe,” explains Elizabeth, who shudders as she recalls a particularly severe seizure that lasted 24 hours. “Without that care plan, Jonathan’s life would be at risk.”

Further tests revealed that Jonathan also suffers from cerebral palsy, and he’s since been diagnosed as having autism.Despite those additional challenges, Jonathan is thriving. He speaks three languages, and is in a special needs grade four class where he loves working on the computer, playing with trucks and being with his friends. One role he particularly enjoys is that of older brother to his 18 month old sibling David. Ultimately, the goal is for Jonathan to live his best life, seizure-free and safe. For now, there has been some progress: though he still has occasional seizures they only last 10 minutes or less, as opposed to hours at a time—and their frequency decreased from daily episodes to once every two weeks.If Jonathan’s seizures were to come back at a higher frequency, the next step would be brain surgery but his parents are hopeful that he can avoid that… at least for a while. “Jonathan is a good boy and he’s so handsome,” coos Elizabeth. “My husband and I are very proud of him because despite all his health issues he remains a positive little boy who is very loving and caring. Every morning he wakes up with a smile on his face. We are lucky to have him and his brother David.” Jonathan will be ten years old in June.With the help of his loving family, their friends and the expert CHEO staff, this young boy can trust that he is in good hands and that he will be well cared for with a treatment plan tailor-made to his needs.And this is something the Puerto family is truly grateful for.
