Local hospital receives ‘exemplary’ standing

Grade 7 and 8 students at North Grenville DHS put on a splendid production of ‘Loathsome Lady.’ Page K14

EMC News – The Kemptville District Hospital (KDH) celebrated its recent achievement of Accreditation with Exemplary Standing last week, which is the highest ranking bestowed by Accreditation Canada. On June 26, under a bright summer sun, the hospital’s CEO, the Chair of its Board of Directors, and the KDH Accreditation Team together unfurled a striking banner that proclaimed the hospital ‘Accredited with Exemplary Standing.’ Jean-Jacques Rousseau, the Board Chair, expressed the

board’s tremendous pride in, “the great people who work at KDH.” He emphasized that the ranking was achieved thanks to the hard work of many people – hospital staff, physicians, volunteers, board members and partners – and expressed his appreciation in particular to the Accreditation Team for achieving an amazing result. “Passing through the accreditation process is difficult enough, but to be awarded Exemplary Status for a small hospital is unique. This is evidence again that KDH is a special place be-

cause of the great people that work here. Other health care providers and stakeholders will take note of this achievement and this can only benefit us in our relationship with them,” said Mr. Rousseau. The Accreditation Celebration included a chicken barbecue enjoyed by more than 100 staff, physicians and volunteers in the hospital’s courtyard. A group photo was also taken to commemorate the event. After receiving notification of its exemplary standing at the end of April, KDH had surveyed

staff as to how they wanted to celebrate. Although many different suggestions came forward, the opportunity to enjoy a meal together was a recurring theme. The Accreditation Canada rating of Exemplary Standing denotes the highest quality of care and services. Only a handful of small hospitals in Ontario have achieved this elite status. The Kemptville District Hospital is a fully accredited healthcare facility committed to building healthier communities. We

Lanark County council passes bylaw approving ATV use

Auditor’s report received Council accepted the 2012 auditor’s report as presented by Allan Chartered Accountant Professional Corporation at the June corporate services committee meeting. Auditor Howard Allan thanked Chief administrative officer/treasurer Kurt Greaves and finance department staff for their assistance during the process. He indicated updated auditing standards from the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants have led to a focus on understanding sources of business risk, fraud risk, entity governance policies and management’s overall decision-making processes. As such, he undertook a comprehensive review of the county’s internal controls to report on areas where there are opportunities to consider enhancements. “The purpose of adequate controls is to ensure, as far as practical, the orderly and efficient conduct of the county’s business, including the discharge of statutory responsibilities, for example, safeguarding of assets, prevention and detection of fraud and error, reliability of accounting records and timely prepa-

Housing and homelessness plan approved Council approved the draft Housing and Homelessness Blueprint, which is a plan to address Lanark County housing and homelessness issues over the next 10 years. The plan is to be submitted to the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing for a 90-day comment period. Following any revisions, it will be submitted to council for final approval no later than December. A 10-year implementation plan will be

based on the seven priorities and 16 strategic objectives identified in the blueprint, and any necessary investment be considered during the annual budget process. Work on the plan began in January 2012 and involved an advisory committee of seven community representatives and community consultations. Councillor John Fenik (Perth mayor) added the Lanark County Housing Corporation met for a strategic planning session this week and the board unanimously agreed the status quo is not acceptable. “We will be introducing bold and new initiatives to address the issue of affordable housing and our housing stock. While we are passing this Housing and Homelessness Plan tonight, it is not the end of it,� he said.

EMC News – The following are highlights from the regular Lanark County Council meeting held Wednesday, June 26 at the county building in Perth. Council has passed a bylaw to permit the operation of all-terrain vehicles on county roads, except in Perth, Carleton Place and Almonte. The bylaw sets out numerous provisions, including speed limits: ATVs cannot be driven at speeds of greater than 20 kilometres per hour on roads with limits of not greater than 50 km/h, and they cannot exceed 50 km/h on roads with speed limits of greater than 50 km/h. The county has established a curfew prohibiting ATV operation between 11 p.m. and 4 a.m. on county roads. Other provisions include the necessity of having reflective strips on all four sides of the vehicles and no chains or studs on the tires. ATVs must be driven in the same direction as traffic on the same side of the road, and multiple ATVs must ride in single file. As well, they must be driven on the shoulder or, if there is no shoulder, as close to the right edge of the road surface as possible. When making a left turn, ATVs can move away from the shoulder or right edge when it is safe to do so. Some local municipalities have bylaws regarding ATV use, others are considering bylaws and some do not permit ATVs. Bylaw 2013-20 can be found at www.lanarkcounty.ca.

This was the third of six such conventions scheduled this year in Cornwall. Delegates, including Witnesses from Carleton Place and Lanark, joined 2,800 others from Ottawa and the Ottawa Valley to meet at Cornwall’s Sports Com-

Jack Johnson, local Elder of the Carleton Place congregation, said, “The convention highlighted Bible truths, and the core of the program was the encouragement given to all in attendance to continue to

look to the Bible as the source of truthful answers to the complex problems each and everyone faces in these stressful times.” Attendees could see from the presentations that these Bible truths really work, whether in one’s personal life, in a family setting or in the work place.

EMC Entertainment – It was a gold letter day at Perth’s Full Circle Theatre (FCT) this past week when the community theatre’s exterior signs went up on the building. In keeping with the town whose motto is “Make haste slowly”, it took only a year and ten months from the official opening of the theatre to arrange the finances and the paperwork for the signage. Lack of prominent signs has been one of the facility’s shortcomings over the past two seasons, as new patrons searched for the space and often ended up well out of town. The search is not helped by the fact that Googlemaps places the Full Circle Theatre on the wrong side of the Tay River, insisting that it is on the east bank, rather than west of the river, by the town’s Old Burying Ground. The signs are going up just in time to welcome new tenants for the summer of 2013, as the Classic Theatre Festival, the Ottawa Valley’s professional summer theatre, move their base of operations into FCT, featuring two classic Broadway comedies which will run consecutively from July 12 through Sept. 1. In keeping with the nature of the Full Circle Theatre, which was created largely by volunteers on a reuse, re-cycle, re-purpose basis, the materials for the signs are the very same materials which comprised the old signs on the building, which for more than 25 years announced the presence of Charlie’s Car Wash at 26 Craig St. As the re-construction of the building progressed in 2010 and 2011, the signs were removed, repaired, restored and re-configured to read Full Circle Theatre. Like the vintage theatre seats from Perth’s 1915 Balderson Theatre which have been refurbished for the Full Circle, older is often better. The signs were one of the last major to-do items in the project, which began in 2009 and has seen a 65-year old car-wash remade into a 102-seat, ground-level, barrierfree theatre, offering both live entertainment and high-definition, wide-screen cinema events. From approximately 60 events in the theatre’s initial season of 2011/2012, 2012/2013 saw more than 100 performances and 2013/2014 is promising even more. New upgrades to the lighting system, coupled with 5.1 surround-sound audio, make FCT one of the most technically capable spaces in the area. An intimate, comfortable (air-conditioned) house, an attractive, bright lobby and extraordinary acoustics have made FCT a favourite with performers and audience alike. BarnDoor Productions, the resident company, will be back in the fall with their 19th season – one packed with some of the best Broadway plays of the last 20 years and more. Guest series including 2 Women Productions, the Perth Community Choir, Film Night International and Charles MacPhail Productions are also making FCT their home, along with single events and touring artists. If you haven’t been to the Full Circle Theatre yet, drop by for great entertainment and a uniquely inviting and warm atmosphere. Now, with very visible outdoor signage,

COMMENTARY Congratulations, grads! EMC Editorial – The halls of area schools now sit silent for the summer, awaiting the return of students in September. But not all will be returning. Last week marked graduation ceremonies at high schools across the Upper Canada District School Board and Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario. Years of work were celebrated with the granting of a single piece of paper; a diploma that gives youth the freedom to reach for their dreams. This feat is not to be taken lightly. It���s a major accomplishment in the step towards becoming an adult and entering the workforce. In fact, according to a recent release by the Ministry of Education, the high school graduation rate continues to climb. In 2012, 83 per cent of high school students received their diplomas, which marks a 15 per cent jump from 2003-04 when that rate stood at 68 per cent. That means 115,000 more students walked across their school’s stage to receive their hard-earned scroll. The ministry continues to inch closer to its 85 per cent graduation rate goal. It’s easy to forget the feeling of entering a high school in grade 9 and feeling intimidated by the entire experience. But it is the place where students truly mature and start to become the person they are destined to be. Over the course of the years, they have taken a variety of courses (some they’ve liked, others not so much) but that experience has led students to discover their true passions. They will now continue the next phase of their development in a post-secondary institution or wherever else their journey takes them. It’s also now time for other students to take their places as the positive leaders in their local schools, to show younger students the value of extra-curricular activities and becoming a part of a school they will spend so much time in.

Mary has her first foray into milking cows on the farm EMC Lifestyle – “I’m telling you, she’s too young,” Mother said. Father said he milked a cow the day he learned to walk! Mother said “that’s nonsense, and you know it.” Rarely did I have so much attention sent my way, and I was loving every minute of it. With four siblings, rarely was I singled out, but that day, I was getting my share. The subject was if I was old enough to milk. Once a calf got to the cow stage, I lost interest in her, and I had little desire to sit with my head on her belly and try to get milk into a pail. But Father said it was time I did my share like everyone else in the family. Needless to say I was never consulted as to how I felt about the issue. And so, on a Saturday it was, Father put a three-legged stool at the rear end of the quietest cow in the cow byre, put a pail under her, and without a word of instruction, told me to go ahead and milk! The old cow turned her head in my direction, and then back to chewing her cud. After watching my three brothers and sister do the milking often enough, I figured there wasn’t

much to it. Well, I pulled, and I tugged, and I spit on my hands, and kept saying “sooo Bossie.” Nothing worked. The brothers were real pros at the job. The barn cats lined up on the other side of the gutter, and every so often, a squirt of milk would be headed in their direction, and without fail, the milk went right into their opened mouths. And here was I who couldn’t even get a drop into the milk pail! My arms ached right up to my shoulders, and a couple times I almost fell off the three-legged stool. It was beyond me why the milk stool only had three legs in the first place! To add to my misery, it was fly season too. The poor old cow kept swishing her tail trying to rid herself of the hateful pests, and with each swish, I took the full brunt square in the face! Mother was right. I was too young for this job! But to convince Father was another matter. First of all, I didn’t like the cow byre. It was full of cobwebs, cows smelled differently from the horses.

Emerson, Everett and Earl were into the snickering, and I knew it wouldn’t be long before I was into the tears. It was my beloved sister Audrey who finally came to my rescue. She had finished milking her cows, the milk had been emptied into the cans, and she came over to where I was sitting hunched over, still tugging away with absolutely not a drop to show for my efforts! “Let me try,” she said, and I gladly surrendered the stool. The milk spewed out on the first try with Audrey!

cow! I thought I was doing exactly what my sister was doing, but it certainly wasn’t working for me, and I was convinced the cow didn’t like me any more than I liked her. Audrey tried her best to show me how to milk. Nothing worked. Finally, she went up to Father who was at the far end of the cow byre. “Mary’s hands are too small,” she said. “And the cow’s too big,” I offered. Father ran his hand over my head. Even though it wasn’t near my nose, I could smell cow off him, and milk, neither of which were my favourite odours. “Well, we’ll try again some other time,” he said. I was out of the barn before you could say ‘milk pail’. I ran to the house and told Mother I wanted to change my clothes. She knew exactly why. I bundled up what I had on in the barn, and brought the whole pile down to the summer kitchen to wait the Monday wash. I asked Mother for a pan of hot water and wash cloth and towel, which I hauled upstairs to the privacy of the bedroom. I washed every square inch of my body I could reach, but I thought I could still smell ADVERTISING SALES: ADVERTISING SALES CO-ORDINATOR Andrea Harding SALES: Cheryl Johnston, Sharon Sinfield, Kathy Perreault, Liz Gray, Kevin Hoover, Jamie Rae-Gomes Email: emcsales@perfprint.ca Fax: 613-283-9988 THE DEADLINE FOR DISPLAY ADVERTISING IS MONDAY 4:30 PM

the cow byre off my skin. I opened my sister Audrey’s drawer of the little washstand we shared, and took out her precious can of Lily of the Valley talcum powder, and slathered it on with abandon. Then I put on clean clothes from the inside out! When we sat down for supper, my try at milking was never mentioned. I figured the brothers had been warned not to bring up the subject. And I knew, without a doubt, my milking days were over...but only for the time being. Everyone had to pull her share back then. And I knew the time would come when I would be led back into the cow byre and made to stick at it until I could fill a milk pail like the brothers or my sister Audrey. Not a word was spoken all during supper about how I had failed at a job that everyone worth his or her salt would be expected to do growing up on a farm long before modern milking machines did the job for you. Even my sister Audrey, who guarded her belongings like a mother hen guarding her chicks, never said a word about how I smelled of Lily of the Valley. • 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.

Champions for Kids Foundation honours major donors at recent celebration EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Upper Canada District School Board Champions for Kids Foundation honoured its major donors Wednesday, June 26 at its 2013 Friends of the Foundation Celebration. The event is organized each year to recognize major donors to the foundation who give $500 to $10,000 to support its work. Businesses honoured at the event were: Wills Transfer, The Matilda Recreation Committee, LifeTouch Canada, PhotoVisions School Photography, Four-O-One Electric, the Ambassador Conference Resort, and David K. Thomas and Nancy Hanna. Champions president David K. Thomas, who along with his wife Nancy Hanna is a major donor to the charity, thanked those in attendance at the ceremony. Thomas told those gathered at the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brockville office for the event that their donations make a real difference in the lives of children in communities served by the board. He spoke of a family in Grenville County that was assisted by the foundation. The father, a successful businessman, was diagnosed with brain cancer and eventually passed away. The family was supported throughout the fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ordeal. The foundation provided gas cards to fund travel costs associated with his treatment, as well as restaurant gift cards so the family could enjoy meals together and have one less thing to worry about at the end of a treatment day.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The family is still struggling, but we showed them that this really, really big board could become very, very small and work to care for them and support them,â&#x20AC;? said Thomas. South Grenville District High School vice-principal Christie Reitsma told the

story of two children from a working class family who were helped by the foundation. The parents work hard, but cannot find the money to fund summer activities for their children. The foundation approached the family and offered to fund summer camp for both children.

The camp, seeing what a great child the daughter was, has offered to make her a junior leader this summer. The foundation was started in January 2008 to assist children from disadvantaged families to play sports and enjoy the arts. It also helps their fami-

lies cover costs associated with obtaining medical care â&#x20AC;&#x201C; such as gas costs for travel to hospital and parking passes. Since its founding, the charity has raised $700,000 to help children in need. Submitted by the Upper Canada District School Board.

EMC Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The organic food and drink industry has expanded rapidly, experiencing an average growth of 20 per cent per year on a global scale. What motivates people to buy organic foods? Health, wholesomeness, and respect for the environment are sure to be found at the top of the list. An organic-certified food is produced without the use of any chemical products. The difference between organic and non-organic foods is the absence of all chemical pesticides, herbicides, and preservatives. Eating organic, like our ancestors did, is the only way to avoid the involuntary consumption of substances that are potentially hazardous to our health. Did you know that over time, the ingestion of many food industry chemical substances can lead to a weakening of the immune system and have harmful effects on the mental, cognitive, and physical development of children? In addition, numerous studies have shown that the current antibiotics resistance observed in humans is the direct result of the use of growth hormones and medications given to cattle and pigs raised for slaughter. This is just one of the reasons why organic food is increasingly popular among consumers. An organic product does not contain any more vitamins than a similar nonorganic product. A carrot is still a carrot, whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s organic or not. Choosing to buy organic is based solely on ecological and social reasons. Buying an organic carrot means knowing exactly what is on your plate. Also, buying locally produced organic foods means encouraging producers and reducing greenhouse gases produced by the transportation of food.

More than $4,500 raised at recent Champions for Kids Fun Run/Walk EMC News – More than $4,500 was raised at the Upper Canada District School Board’s (UCDSB) fifth annual Champions for Kids Foundation Fun Run/Walk called “Strive for Five!” held at the Ferguson Forest Centre in Kemptville on June 16. Despite the rain, an amazing 190+ participants laced up their sneakers, took to the trails and finished a one-kilometre or five-kilometre walk/run as individual participants or centipede teams. Centipede teams are groups of five to eight people who walk or run in costume and stay tied together in some unique way. “We are absolutely thrilled with the turnout of this year’s event,” says Sarah Crawford, event chair. “So many people brought their families and friends, and it was great to see their smiles throughout the morning.” Each year, prizes are awarded to the participant who raises the most money in pledges, has the best costume (for centipede teams), shows the best spirit, and is the youngest and most experienced. This year, the participants who raised the most pledges were UCDSB building systems specialist Kevin Riddell and

UCDSB human resources partner Jennifer McDonald. “We really enjoy this event, and working with all the awesome people involved,” says Riddell. “It was also a special day for my little running buddy Alexa Powers. She’s nine-years-old, and completed her first five-kilometre run! Plus, she did it in 28.58! To see a big smile on her face as we splashed along, well, that made it extra special for me, too.” The best costume for the one-kilometre run was the Glen Tay Parent Council centipede team, sponsored by TD Canada Trust and the best five-kilometre run centipede team costume went to the UCDSB Service Excellence team called, “Service with a Smile.” The Spirit Award went to the group of runners representing Brockville Collegiate Institute (BCI) including a centipede team, sponsored by TD Canada Trust. The “most experienced” title went to Merv Hodgson, while a number of youngsters were recognized for their participation with a free cone coupon from Dairy Queen in Brockville. In addition, UCDSB staff members were encouraged to enter school or de-

partment teams ahead of time, and they would be entered in a draw to win a free lunch. The group representing Caldwell Street Public School – all the way from Carleton Place – won the lunch. As in previous years, this event partnered with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Leeds and Grenville which hosted Ribfest at the same location. “Both events have one common goal in mind – to support children in our communities,” Crawford says. The $4,500 raised will go to the foundation that supports families of children who can’t afford to play sports or enjoy the arts outside of school hours, as well as families whose children require medical care.

“In the past four years, we have contributed over $10,000 to Champions for Kids,” says Crawford. “It is truly rewarding to know that the money raised goes right back into the hands of families who see the benefits immediately.” Crawford would like to thank a number of sponsors and contributors of the event, especially the TD Canada Trust locations in Kemptville and the Brockville Shopping Centre for their ongoing support. For the last three years, TD has sponsored student centipede teams from schools in their local area. New this year, branch managers from Perth, Prescott and downtown Brockville joined in to sponsor teams from Glen Tay Public School, South Gren-

ville District High School, and BCI. Crawford would also like to thank accountant Anthony Fritz for sponsoring a Lyn Public School team, Team Solutions for sponsoring a team from Big Brothers Big Sisters, St. Lawrence College for sponsoring two teams to participate, and Walmart for sponsoring a student team from Kemptville Public School for the third year in a row. Special thanks also go to Priority Management, Promotional Concepts in Brockville, Boston Pizza in Brockville, Tim Hortons in Kemptville, St. Lawrence Pools in Brockville, and the North Grenville District High School African drumming group for their donations of resources and time.

Community mourns death of local political icon, Bill Thake By LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com

EMC News –The community mourned the passing of a political icon not only in Westport, but in a region where he was well-known and loved. The longest-running mayor in Canada, Bill Thake died on Wednesday, June 26 in the Kingston General Hospital after suffering a stroke on June 23. Hundreds gathered in the village of Westport on Saturday, paying tribute to a man whom many said, is “irreplaceable.” He had been at the helm of the council horseshoe since 1969. He was elected to his first term as councillor in 1962 – 51 years ago. He helped rejuvenate the old arena in the village; a place that seemed fitting for final goodbyes. “I was shocked to hear about it,” said Smiths Falls Mayor Dennis Staples, who said he’d worked with Thake on some committees. “I know he loved his community and not only that of Westport but of all of eastern Ontario for more than 50 years. He was everybody’s friend. His common sense and practicality… he made had good solutions made good decisions.” Staples said that when he heard of Thake’s stroke, he was shocked. “I prayed for his recovery and I was saddened to hear that he didn’t make it home.” Smiths Falls chief administrative officer Steve Fournier worked with Thake as the county CAO from 1999 to 2007. “You couldn’t have found a better politician. He had a great sense of humour and found that

humour in everything. He always had a joke or a story to ease the tension of a political situation.” Fournier said he learned a lot from Thake and the ease with which Thake took his position to heart. “Not only did he have respect from all of staff, he knew they all had a job to do and he encouraged them to do it,” Fournier said. Thake was the warden for Lanark Leeds and Grenville for four terms, and had just completed his fourth in 2012. Lanark Leeds and Grenville MPP Steve Clark and his wife Deanna are away visiting their children in Fort McMurray, Alta. Unfortunately, he said, they were going to miss the funeral. Clark, elected mayor of Brockville in 1982, said he met Thake shortly after that at county council. Back then, county council had some 40 representatives. “He approached me and was very welcoming,” Clark said. “Over the years, he gave me some incredible advice, both when I was mayor of Brockville and as a member of provincial parliament.” Clark remembered a “moving experience” during Thake’s tribute to 50 years in politics. “I was really honoured when his 50th anniversary in politics took place that I was at Queen’s Park and was able to give him a tribute in the legislature for his 50 years,” he said. “It was a darned moving experience, because we had people from all parties give him a standing ovation in the legislature.” Clark added that Thake was one of the most respected municipal politicians in Ontario, and he

Bill Thake considered him his friend. “Westport, even though it’s a small place, it certainly has a very big presence on the political stage because of the accomplishments of Bill Thake.” Thake had a sense of humour that was second to none, said Clark, who added that he never wanted to go after him when speaking at any public engagements. “He was such a great speaker, and had such a sense of humour that I could never emulate that,” he said. “Ontario has lost one of its greatest and

beloved politicians. He was a great guy and he’s going to be missed by a lot of people.” Westport Coun. Roger Merkley said despite being the youngest member of the village’s council, he always had high praise for Thake. “I’m the junior man on council, so I have spent the least amount of time with him, politically, but I’m a lifer of the village as Bill was.” As a child, Merkley spent a lot of time with Thake’s son, Bill G., who predeceased his father in 1979 – after a tragic car accident claimed his life and those of three other teens that fall. That four-person funeral was the first one Merkley attended to as a newly graduated funeral director. “That was certainly tough, but I knew if I could get through that, I would be OK with this chosen vocation… helping families in their times of need,” Merkley said. Years following that, Merkley said Thake (senior) always sent accolades his way as he dealt with families who have lost loved ones. Merkley attended Saturday’s service as part of Westport council. Thake was a member of several organizations including the fire department, Lions Club and Masonic Lodge. Thake – Mr. Westport as he was known – is survived by his wife Marlene (Mustard). He was the father of Lucinda (Cindy) and husband Chris Dopson, and their sons Ben and Eric. Besides his son, Thake was predeceased by brothers Edwin (Bud) and Orval, and by sisters Earlene, Rheona and Audry. Arrangements were entrusted to Lyons Funeral Home of Westport.

NGDHS graduate Sammi Brown wants to become teacher and expand minds By JENNIFER WESTENDORP jwestendorp@perfprint.ca

EMC Events – Sammi Brown is a resilient teenager. Brown stuck out the hardship of a four-year French emersion program at North Grenville District High School in order to receive a certificate. She’s also graduating with honors, which speaks for her overall work ethic. “I had to take two extra courses in grade 12 to get all the credits I needed for French emersion,” said Brown. “I’m glad I stuck with it and got the seven credits I needed for my certificate.” Brown began participating in the Student Council (SAC) in grade 10. She helped out a lot that year by making posters and in the spring decided to run for Deputy Prime Minister. She was voted in and went through grade 11 as the acting Deputy Prime Minister. Then, in grade 12 she was promoted to the position of Prime Minister. “It was a lot of work, especially because the teachers decided they weren’t going to do any extracurricular activities this year,” said Brown. “It was hard for me. The strike made it a lot more difficult to coordinate communications. It was not easy to organize stuff.” Brown was part of the LINK crew, which is a course designed to connect older students with younger students in a mentor-like fashion. Brown assisted younger students by helping them with homework and making sure they adjusted well to the high school atmosphere. “I love that it’s a small school,” said Brown, “because you get to know everyone.” Brown said the biggest issue facing high school kids these days is girl drama, which is due to selfesteem issues. She said social media is a major factor in the perpetuation of catty behavior. Brown enjoys figure skating, which she used to compete in, playing volleyball and making bracelets. Brown said she had too many favourite teachers to name, but stressed that Ms. Ryan really stood out from the rest. “She’s a really motherly figure,” said Brown. “I had her so many times. I’m going to miss having her teach me math.” Brown also learned a lot from Mr. Stover, who she referred to as a really good teacher and inter-

esting person. “I learned a lot about science from him,” said Brown. “Just listening to his stories, which were always really interesting.” Brown said prom was a blast and that the prom committee did a really good job making it a memorable evening for the students. It was held at Stanley’s Maple Farm and there was a barn in the back with a bunch of kittens wandering around. “I walked up and this dude was just cradling a kitten,” said Brown. “It was so funny.” At the graduation ceremony, Brown received the SAC Leadership Award, the James Osborne Clothier Memorial Scholarship from Queen’s University, a Silver pin for having eight consecutive semesters with an average above 75 per cent. She was announced as an Ontario Scholar, received the Lieutenant- Governor of Ontario Volunteer Award and received a Gold pin for being ‘an exemplary knight in academics, sports and extracurricular activities.’ At the beginning of the school year, Brown wasn’t sure what she wanted to do with the rest of her life. She knew she wanted to study within the faculties of math and science, but found it difficult to pick a specific program. After much soul searching, Brown chose to enroll in the concurrent education program at Queen’s University, which starts in September. She’ll be working towards a Bachelor of Science and then attending a one-year teaching program. “I had always thought about becoming a teacher because my grandma was a teacher and my grandpa was a principle,” said Brown. “I hesitated because there aren’t too many jobs in teaching.” In the end, Brown decided to stick with her passion, rather than opt for a bigger financial pay-off professionally. “I spent so much time with teacher’s and I thought it would be cool to be one,” said Brown. “Plus, I already have a lot of leadership skills.” Brown plans on living at the residence facility at university. She hopes to teach intermediate grades when she is all done with her post-secondary education. “I’m really excited to go to university,” said Brown. Brown plans on spending the summer working at Rideau Hill Camp and improving her already Photo by JENNIFER WESTENDORP impressive leadership skills in preparation for the Sammi Brown, a true North Grenville Knight, poses beside the school’s mascot. next phase of her life.

Covered bridge hunt is a great summer getaway

Call:

Reflections BY JEFF MAGUIRE

was that experience in Hartland that got me started on what has become a lifelong journey of discovery. In eastern Ontario there are covered bridges near Kemptville and Brockville and in west Quebec there is the famous Wakefield bridge (circa 1915) which was rebuilt following a total loss fire in 1984. Important structures Something else of interest about covered bridges: They werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t built to be quaint and picturesque which is how most of us think of them today. Originally they were covered to preserve and protect the wood. But in the 19th century and early in the 20th Century they served as gath-

of the longest covered bridges in the region. It was a perfect summer day when we stopped at Mount Orne. Traffic was light and we were able to easily walk back and forth across the bridge and take photos from a farm trail which runs alongside the wide Connecticut River. The beautiful river is the longest and largest in New England. It runs for 655 kilometres (407 miles) from its source in northern NH before emptying into Long Island Sound on the Atlantic Ocean. It was noon when we headed into nearby Lancaster. There we made a stop at the Mechanic Street Bridge which is right in the middle of the community and easy to locate. Originally constructed in 1862 it was rebuilt in 2006 and is in sparkling condition. The bridge spans the Israels River and is 28.6 metres (94 feet) long. In Lancaster we purchased a few items at a shopping mall taking ad-

ering places for rallies, meetings, weddings and childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s play in an era before there were many public buildings. Of course their main purpose was and is to carry roads across rivers and streams. There were once many more covered bridges in Canada and the US I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a figure for Canada. But in the States there was once more than 10,000 such structures in regular use. Today there are just 750 still in service south of the border. As I have mentioned more than 100 are in Vermont while neighbouring New Hampshire (NH) claims 54. Those numbers are slightly off because in at least two cases both states lay claim to the same bridges. Understandable considering the structures in question cross the Connecticut River, linking Vermont and New Hampshire. We visited one of them on this trip. The â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Mount Orne Bridgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is located five miles west of the town of Lancaster, NH. Built in 1911 it is almost entirely within NH and at 81 metres (266 feet) in length it is one

halls and libraries, along with some truly spectacular historic homes. We normally take these trips in the spring and fall. This time we enjoyed a summer vacation. Given all of the rain we have had in eastern North America this year everything was lush and green. In some places agricultural crops (notably corn) are suffering due to the deluge. On the other hand flower gardens were thriving everywhere we went and in Vermont the picturesque Green Mountains have never looked greener. Before going into detail about our excursion I want to offer this qualification with respect to covered bridges. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to go to the US to find them. There are lots right here in Canada, mainly in New Brunswick, Quebec and Ontario. New Brunswick has 64 still standing and the bridge at Hartland, which spans the St. John River, bills itself as the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longest covered bridge. At 391 metres (1,283 feet) it is a monster. I crossed it in the company of my parents as a child. I believe it

EMC Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; People who read this column regularly know about my interest in covered bridges. I have offered details a few times over the years. I have been pleased to receive many emails from newspaper readers who are intrigued by the same subject, including a number of people who are also among those I refer to as â&#x20AC;&#x153;covered bridge junkies.â&#x20AC;? Most gratifying of all are the messages from people who say they have followed my advice in previous columns and now semi-regularly embark on their own covered bridge hunts. One of those who became intrigued about covered bridges after reading one of my pieces is wellknown Ottawa radio talk show host Lowell Green. We have corresponded on the subject. In recent years our friends and regular travel companions Frank and Wendy LeBlanc have also been hooked. We visit Vermont together once or twice a year. Because the small state has the most covered bridges per square mile in the United States (at last report there were 104 such structures still in use there) it is an ideal location for finding and adding bridges to your life lists. Our lists are growing exponentially and so is our hunting ground. Two weeks ago the Maguires and LeBlancs spent five days criss-crossing parts of three states. We visited bridges in New York State, Vermont and New Hampshire. The great thing about a covered bridge expedition is that in the process you find so many other interesting places and things along the way. This trip was no exception. In Vermont and New Hampshire we passed through so many picturesque New England towns and villages that we eventually lost count. All of them had wonderful old churches, town

A positive approach to having kids in the kitchen Nutrition Tips

EMC Lifestyle – Do your kids want to help out in the kitchen? Wait! Before you panic and say “no way” or “too much mess”, think about this: having kids help you in the kitchen, even the young ones, can be both productive and teach them valuable food skills that set the pattern for healthy eating. When children are involved in the food preparation, they are more likely to eat the foods they helped prepared. From toddler to schoolage, kids can learn a lot about food right at home.

Tasks for toddlers: two to three-years-old These little guys love to help in the kitchen. Even exploring food through their senses is a food “skill” that helps them to learn about what food is and what it can do. Some things to try with your toddler: • Wash fruits or vegetables in the sink and learn the names of the foods being washed. • Add items that are already chopped to the casserole or sauce.

• Help find certain ingredients in the pantry or fridge. • Put paper cups in muffin tins. • Let them play with a wooden spoon and empty pot. • Talk about the colour or smell of the food being prepared. Preschoolers play a part: three to six-years-old Food related activities at this age can help their fine motor skills and wake-up their interest in food and how it comes together to make a meal. Let your preschooler help you with: • Remove shells from hard-boiled eggs. • Pour from a measuring cup. • Take a certain number of carrots from the bag. • Mash cooked vegetables. • Assemble foods (e.g., make their own trail mix). • Stir ingredients together.

Helping in the kitchen can teach kids lessons that go beyond the classroom! For more information about this issue, contact Eatand learn how to use some Right Ontario at 1-877-510small kitchen equipment. 5102 to speak directly to a Older children can learn to: Make tortilla wraps with different fillings. • Toss salad ingredients together with dressing. • Pick ingredients for a smoothie. • Pick out recipes from a cookbook. 2007 Chev • Put together simple meals and snacks (e.g., yogurt + Malibu 2LT fruit, cereal + milk, peanut loaded, 92km red butter + bread).

Getting your kids involved in the kitchen is a good way to pass on family traditions and spend time together. It can also help reinforce what they are learning in school in a very tangible way. There’s no better math lesson than counting and measuring baking ingredients. How can science be more fun than making a food “experiment” and seeing what happens when the recipe is cooked? Social studies starts with Steps for school-age: six to learning where and how food eight-years-old is grown and the importance This is a great age for kids of eating food that comes to try to follow simple recipes from our local area.

vantage of the fact NH has no sales tax. It was lunch hour and we were directed to the Moonbeam CafĂŠ on the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main street where we enjoyed the most generous portions of New England clam chowder we have ever been served. It was wonderful! Staff members told us if we had visited Lancaster a day earlier we would have missed the opportunity to try their world class chowder. The restaurant was closed for the day so all the staff could cheer the owners as they accepted the 2013 â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hidden Gemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; plaque at the Best of New Hampshire Awards in Manchester. Based on our experience, no surprise there. Leaving Lancaster we headed south to the village of Bath, NH which has three covered bridges. The one in the middle of the community is closed for renovations and, covered in plastic, wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t very photogenic. The surprise in Bath was that we were able to visit the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Brick Storeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; which, it turned out, is Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oldest continuously operated general store. Talk about a hidden gem! The store was literally bursting with intriguing items and ambience. Back in our base of Stowe, Vermont we spent two more days touring the district.

We added nine more bridges to our lists. The enjoyable part of a covered bridge excursion is the chase itself. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use GPS to locate covered bridges which are often a challenge to find along the winding maze of back roads where so many are located. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no â&#x20AC;&#x153;sportâ&#x20AC;? in employing GPS! Instead we rely on paper maps which are less than specific in most cases. Lately we have turned to some of the many books on the subject for directions. If you intend to scope out Vermontâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bridges I recommend â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Covered Bridges of Vermontâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; by Ed Barna which is the best book (in terms of directions) we have found. Obviously I recommend the experience as a great option for a summer vacation. But even if covered bridges donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t turn you on, getting there is half the fun. In the mountainous regions of New England, where many bridges are located, the scenery is so spectacular it sometimes makes you forget what the purpose of your journey was. No matter where your travels take you this summer, enjoy yourselves! If you have any comments or questions for Jeff Maguire he can be reached by email at: jeffrey.maguire@rogers.com.

Help RVCA track algae blooms and excessive aquatic vegetation EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; What is that green slime in front of your dock? Are you noticing algae blooms and an increased growth of aquatic plants on your water body? The Rideau Valley Conservation Authority (RVCA) wants to hear about it! The RVCA has created a survey for lake and river users that asks questions about algae and aquatic plants on their water body. This survey is being conducted in response to an increasing number of concerns about algae and aquatic plants in recent years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been hearing that there are a lot more blooms and

plants out there, but it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily match what we are seeing and learning through our water quality sampling,â&#x20AC;? says Mike Yee, RVCA manager of biology and water quality. Algae and aquatic plants play an important ecological role in lakes and rivers and they should be present in your water body. They are the first, vital links in a natural food chain that all other water creatures rely on including insects, frogs, minnows, small fish right up to top predators like bass, muskie and lake trout. Under normal circumstances, they also produce large amounts of oxygen helping to keep the water qual-

ity in a healthy state. So they are very important. But too much of a good thing can be very bad! During warm weather, populations of algae and aquatic vegetation can grow quickly to form large masses. As the mass grows and expands, algae and plants at the lower levels die off and decompose over large areas. This process uses up much of the oxygen in the water and degrades the entire aquatic ecosystem. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve noticed changes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or not â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we want to hear from you,â&#x20AC;? says Yee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to get a better idea of areas we can target and focus our energy

LAMING, Dwayne- In loving memory of my dear son who was taken tragically July 4th, 2010. I only have a picture now, A frozen piece of time, To remind me of how it was, When you were here, and mine. How much I miss you being here, I really can not say, The ache is deep inside my heart, And never goes away. No farewell words were spoken, No time to say goodbye, You were gone before I knew it, And only God knows why. Always loved and never forgotten, Dan and Fran xoxo LAMING, Dwayne- In loving memory of our dear brother/uncle who was taken tragically on July 4th, 2010. We miss you now, our hearts are sore, As time goes by we miss you more, Your loving smile, your gentle face, No one can fill your vacant place. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have old days back When we were all together. But secret tears and loving thoughts will be with us forever. Always in our thoughts Dwayne xoxo Sherry, Angel, Adam and families.

also our way of saying “thank you” to the many families who have shown confidence in us since we came to Almonte in 1973.

McPARLAND, Cory – Taken to soon from us on July 8, 1995 by a drunk driver. 18 years have gone, The sadness we feel still hangs on. To lose someone so young isn’t fair, We have memories we want to share. Your nephews Brett and Kale are getting big, You guys would play in the sand box; Build roads and dig. A very proud uncle you would be, To watch them grow with you and me. Don’t worry, they’re watching up above, So they can have all of your love. Missing you everyday Love, Mom and Dad (Ann and Keith) Kim (Jay and Brett) Sarah (Kale) XO

STAPLES David R. July 10, 1947 July 8, 2003

DWAYNE D. LAMING July 4, 2010 My love, beside your grave I often stand, With heart both crushed and sore, Silent til the sweet words come, “Not lost, but gone before”. God knows how much I miss you, He counts the tears I shed. And whispers, “He only sleeps, Your loved one is not dead”. So I’ll be brave, Dwayne, And pray to God each day, So when He calls me home to you, Your smile will guide the way. You were the love of my life and taken far too soon “Thanks for the DANCE” Kathy

IN MEMORIAM In fond and loving memory of our dear Father and Poppy Gone dear father, gone forever, How we miss your smiling face But you left us to remember, None on earth can take your place. A happy home we once enjoyed, How sweet the memory still, But death has left a loneliness The world can never fill. Just when your life was brightest, Just when your years were best, You left this world of sorrow, To a home of eternal rest.

ADAMS – In loving memory of a dear brother Brett Adams, July 8, 2012. Those we love don’t go away, They walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near, Still loved, still missed, and very dear. Gone but not forgotten Love Herb and Lisa

ADAMS – In loving memory of Brett Philip Adams who passed away July 8, 2012. We thought of you with love today but that is nothing new We thought about you yesterday and days before that too We think of you in silence, we often speak your name but All we have are memories and your pictures in a frame Your memory is our keepsake with which we’ll never part God has you in His keeping, we have you in our hearts. Love Glenda Brittany, Jeff Jonathan and Aundrea

SONNENBURG Tyler Brent Robert “Ty” May 17, 1985 – July 2, 2002 In our home there is a picture, Of your face more precious than gold. And to those who loved and lost you, Your memory will never grow old. Today we look at your picture, At your face so loving and true, No wonder our hearts are breaking “Ty” Losing a son and brother like you. But each day you walk beside us, And when our lives are through, We pray that God will take our hands, And lead us straight to you. You’ll always be loved and remembered And greatly missed “Ty”. Love always and forever, Mom, Dad and your brother Trav xxoo

Cheryl Brown to bid farewell after 29 years By JENNIFER WESTENDORP jwestendorp@perfprint.ca

EMC News – Kemptville and District Home Support Inc., better known as the Seniors Centre, is losing a priceless asset. Cheryl Brown, Executive Director of KDHSI, is about to retire after 29 years of serving the community. “I won’t be a stranger,” said Brown in reference to the centre. Brown began working for KDHSI on September 4, 1984 and has decided that September 4, 2013 is the date she will be handing over the reins of leadership. “I want to enjoy whatever life there is left, not that I haven’t enjoyed the last 29 years,” said Brown. “However, some health issues have come up. I had to make this decision and it was the right time.” Brown said a lady she’s known and worked with for 20 years will be taking over her position at the KDHSI. Susan Smith, a resident of North Augusta, has opted to fill Brown’s shoes and continue the tradition of giving back to the community through the Seniors Centre. “She’s delightful,” said Brown. “I enjoy her company very much. She’s loving, caring and very thorough in her work.” Brown said she hoped funding for KDHSI improves going forward so Smith would be able to hire another part-time employee because the Centre would benefit from another set of hands. Brown said the reason the centre is so important is because there are lots of families in the area who run into the issue of elderly parents needing help, such as meals, and they don’t know where to turn. “The centre is very important

to the people in this community,” said Brown. Brown applied for the position with KDHSI back in 1984 because she watched her grandmother live without community resources available to her as she aged. It inspired her to help seniors and make life easier for them. “My grandmother didn’t have any of these services,” said Brown. “She didn’t have a car, so she had to walk everywhere. She had sore feet all the time, so when I saw the position was available I thought maybe I could do some good in the community.” Brown said her other grandmother, who lived in Ottawa, had all sorts of services available to her that made her day to day life more manageable. Bringing resources to seniors in Kemptville was what drove her to take on the challenging position. “I was determined to make it better for my people because they deserved better,” said Brown. Brown said one of the first things she did was start a foot clinic for seniors. At the time, the ministry refused to fund the clinic, but now they have to provide funding for foot clinics in seniors centres, which Brown said was ironic. Prior to joining the KDHSI, Brown worked in a medical centre. “All the seniors there would pass away over time,” said Brown. “I wanted to help them while they were still healthy and provide opportunities for them to interact with each other.” Brown said when she started out nearly 30 years ago the KDHSI had no employees besides herself. It operated solely upon the dedication of 10 volunteers. Brown didn’t even have a desk

She built the KDHSI from the ground up and continues to show love and care to the seniors residing in North Grenville. Back in 1981, the KDHSI served 50 clients and had roughly 30 volunteers. Now the KDHSI boasts a beautiful office, three full-time employees, 120 active volunteers and 700 clients.

Retirement seems a well deserved reprieve for Brown, who has given so much of herself to the community. She looks forward to putting her feet up after three decades of dedication. “I love to paint, sculpt and other artsy things,” said Brown. “I have eight grandkids to keep me busy. My husband is retired so he’ll be glad to have me

Expert offers word of caution about canning tomatoes By DON MERCER

News - Now that summer is here, most home gardeners are busily tending to things, and looking forward to a bountiful harvest with great anticipation. One of the staples, of course, is tomatoes. Every year, it seems that all the tomatoes ripen at once, which presents gardeners with the pleasant dilemma of “What do I do with all these tomatoes?” Even after toasted bacon, tomato and lettuce sandwiches; and a great run of tasty salads, there may still be tomatoes ripening on the vines. This is where canning comes to the rescue. Instructions for canning tomatoes are available in various cookbooks and on the Internet. Essentially, these methods involve washing and peeling the tomatoes, and placing them in glass jars which are filled with juice from the tomatoes, and perhaps boiling water, as well as various other ingredients. Individual recipes and instructions will vary. The filled jars are then heat-processed in a water-bath canner. All jars should be free of chips or cracks and be thoroughly cleaned before use. Tight fitting lids which form a secure seal are an absolute must. As simple as it sounds, problems may literally be lurking just below the surface of these canned tomatoes. Although many of you are experienced in the art of canning, and are probably familiar with this, it may be a good idea to re-emphasize some of more important points. In food processing terms, there are two distinct types of products which must be considered when

Canning allows you to enjoy your tomatoes year round. canning: namely, “high acid” and “low acid”. We won’t go into the chemistry of pH and acidity; nor delve into the microbiology of Clostridium botulinum, a microorganism which can cause “botulism”. However, we do need to look at certain precautions you should take when processing low acid foods. For safety’s sake, it is best to treat tomatoes as a low acid product, even though some varieties may be the exception. High acid products include strawberries, sour cherries, and citrus fruits. With each of these, there is generally enough acid naturally present to prevent the growth of any spores that survive the heat treatment step. With low acid foods, this is not the case. One way of addressing this potential problem is to use higher processing temperatures which can only be achieved by using a pressure cooker or canners. To some, pressure cookers or canners may be somewhat intimidating, or an unwelcomed expense. A second method of handling low acid products is to add some acidic material to each batch as you are canning. Bottled lemon

juice may be the most convenient acid source to use. Powdered citric acid is also acceptable, since it is the acidic component of lemon juice. Books such as “Canning and Preserving for Dummies” recommend adding two tablespoons of lemon juice, or half a teaspoon of powdered citric acid per quart jar of tomatoes. Using pressure cookers or canners, plus the addition of acid, should give you an extra level of confidence for the safety of your canned goods. This creates two hurdles to the potential growth of microorganisms – one is the heat treatment, and the other is the acidity. Regardless of the recipe you use for canned tomatoes, be sure to have a high level of cleanliness, while maintaining the recommended heating times, temperatures, and acidity levels. The safety of the canned tomatoes depends upon the correct combination of these factors. Above all - never take shortcuts.

Steve Thompson leaves OxfordOn-Rideau after 12 years jwestendorp@perfprint.ca

EMC News – After more than a decade of inspiring leadership in local children, Steve Thompson is moving on. “He is the backbone for a lot of children,” said Ms. Adamson, a fellow teacher at Oxford-On-Rideau. “The kids love him. He makes the learning very hands-on and interactive.” Adamson said Thompson advocates on behalf of all his students and is sorry to see him go. “He’s a patient man,” said Adamson. “He instills leadership in all of the students, no matter what age.” Thompson has contributed incalculably to the school over the course of the past 12 years. He was a part of the Smart Inclusion Program, which provided Smart Boards for all the classrooms in the school. He also put in a proposal that enabled the school to receive roughly 15 iPads for the students’ usage. “He is certainly an expert in technology,” said Adamson. Thompson organized a program called ‘fitness buddies’ for the primary grades, which usually met once a week and promoted good exercise practices amongst the younger generations. He also coordinated the track and field team, crosscountry team and the Terry Fox Run. In addition, he coached the volleyball team and started a running club for students in grades one through six. “He took his own passion for running and passed it on to the kids,” said Adamson. In his spare time, Thompson was a member of Champions for Kids and acted as a Learning Resource Coach (LRC) for students. He was also a teacher of the Systems Designated Classroom (SDC), which works with children who have behavioral challenges. “Steve was a big part of teaching the kids proper social skills and manners,” said Adamson. “Important life-long

skills.” Thompson even made time for the kindergarten students by teaching them music. “He brought in his guitar and played for them,” said Adamson. “He would sing songs with them. They loved it.” At the end of the year, Thompson took it upon himself to ensure the Grade 6 class had a decent send-off from Oxford-On-Rideau by organizing a twoday camping trip at Rideau Hill Camp. “He didn’t want the kids to miss out,” said Adamson. The school has experienced a reduction in enrollment, prompting the reduction of staff. The move was not necessarily voluntary, but Thompson said he is looking forward to new challenges at a different school. “You can be sad about leaving something great or you can be happy to have been a part of it,” said Thompson. Thompson will be starting work at Centennial 67 Public School in Spencerville in September. He said he prefers teaching at small schools because you can form better relationships with the students. “New things are always a challenge,” said Thompson. “I’m sad to leave behind the relationships I formed at Oxford.” Thompson has been a teacher at Oxford-On-Rideau since 2000 and lives just down the road from the school. “I’m going to miss this school a lot,” said Thompson. “I spent a quarter of my life here and most of my professional career. This place has great kids and great families. Thompson said he feels privileged to have been able to watch kids come into kindergarten at Oxford holding their parents hands and then watch them go off to high school. “It’s amazing to see them out in the real world, at the grocery store and driving around,” said Thompson. “Gives you serious perspective on time.”

St. Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s CHS graduate Sara St. Peter aspires to be detective and help people jwestendorp@perfprint. ca

EMC Events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Sara St. Peter is an extraordinary girl. St. Peter is a graduate of St. Michael Catholic High School in Kemptville, but what makes her special is not what she has accomplished over the past four years, but rather who she is. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She is the most kind-hearted person I know,â&#x20AC;? said Nikki St. Peter, her cousin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She puts others before herself in every circumstance.â&#x20AC;? St. Peter is originally from Nova Scotia, but moved to the North Grenville area with her family at the beginning of Grade 9. Her family is from a small town called Springhill, which is actually the same town where singer Anne Murray was born and raised. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I went from a school of maximum 250 students to one with over 800,â&#x20AC;? said St. Peter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a big change. I got lost on my first day.â&#x20AC;? St. Peter was a member of Ontario Students Against Impaired Driving (OSAID) at St. Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. The group was responsible for organizing MADD presentations and hosting barbecues to fundraise money for the cause. She was also part of the Social Justice club (SOJO), which focused on helping the less fortunate. The club organized blanket drives, which were donated to the House of Lazarus, and shoe drives for the needy. To top it off, St. Peter was a member of the prom committee this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I loved St. Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s,â&#x20AC;? said St. Peter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had a great time in high school and made some of the best memories of my life. I met some of the most important people in my life. There was so much to do at St. Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s.â&#x20AC;?

facing high school kids these days is peer pressure and trying to fit in. She said she avoided being affected by peer pressure by choosing her friends wisely. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would really like to thank the teachers and staff at St. Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for making the last four years one of the best experiences Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had,â&#x20AC;? said St. Peter, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and thank my friends for being so great.â&#x20AC;? St. Peter said her favourite teacher at St. Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s was Ms. Lefebvre because she made learning fun. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We got along really well,â&#x20AC;? said St. Peter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She makes class really interesting and fun. She taught me French, math and health sciences.â&#x20AC;? St Peterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s said she really enjoyed the subject of law and has decided to become a police officer. She enrolled in the Criminology Program at Carleton University, which begins in the fall. The four-year program also incorporates criminal justice into the curriculum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a protective person,â&#x20AC;? said St. Peter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ultimately, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to go on to be a detective. I like to get to the bottom of things.â&#x20AC;? St. Peter said she would love to work with the RCMP some day.

OPINION

Connected to your community

The show goes on in Calgary

E

ditorial – Even after it rains, you can usually count on a rainbow. That’s what appears to be happening in Calgary, where one of the brightest hues of the ‘bow appears to be their mayor, Naheed Nenshi. Here is a man who didn’t sleep for 43 hours straight as floodwaters laid waste to his city’s downtown core. Here is a man who only resumed wearing a business suit on Tuesday – wearing a jersey on Canada Day. Even God rested on the seventh day, so Nenshi’s words to fellow Calgarians to “take a break,” according to the Calgary Sun, on Canada Day were necessary for a city full of frazzled nerves and stressed out people, to recoup and regroup, and pick up refreshed the next day. There were, admittedly, other Canadians, who were frankly surprised that Calgary even had Canada Day celebrations on July 1. But that cowboy, frontier spirit – mixed with the best of the human spirit overall – is something that even flood waters cannot stop. Even with extensive water damage, just as many Canadians, if not more, were floored that the Calgary Stampede – albeit a scaled down one – will go ahead this weekend. We could say that Calgary is back, but to this, Nenshi told CBC News Network on Monday that that would suggest that Calgary ever went away – which, in his eyes, it didn’t. Others may wear “Keep Calm and Carry On,” t-shirts, but Calgarians are living it.

L

ifestyle - I think there is something about living on a farm that makes you want to share it with other people. We have about 18 to 20 dinner guests at our extended table every Sunday afternoon, and they aren’t all family. Many of them are ‘honorary’ family members and friends. We feel very blessed to have them share a meal at the end of the week with us. Occasionally we will also have unexpected visitors. These are a nice surprise. We have had one of my Taipei friends stay with us for a couple days on his way through Ontario a few summers back, and the photos he took of the animals and the farm that weekend are a beautiful reminder of his stay. The images show us the farm through a visitor’s eyes. Sometimes we forget that a tired ewe has peace in her eyes, and a weathered piece of barn board can be beautiful. Showing visitors around the farm forces us to slow down and have another look. We have also had visiting hunters on our farm. Some of them are invited by the Farmer, because the outdoor experience is always more enjoyable when shared with someone

Nenshi’s shining example is just what we needed, especially in the wake of the resignation of Montreal’s second mayor in under a year, the arrest of Laval, Quebec’s mayor on gangsterism charges, and the hallucination-like allegations swirling around Toronto’s mayor. Nenshi follows in the example of other “everywhere Mayors” like New York’s Fiorello LaGuardia, the little flower, who zipped around town in a police motorcycle sidecar, or later Gotham Mayor Rudy Giuliani during the 9/11 crisis, or even Newark, New Jersey’s mayor Corey Booker, who helped his city shovel out after a snow storm. Not for nothing are Calgarians super-imposing Nenshi’s face over that of Superman in posters, at bus shelters and elsewhere, for the new Man of Steel movie. And it was refreshing to see that while, on the one hand, he urged people to hug an emergency responder, on the other hand he railed against gawkers and ‘yahoos’ in canoes on the city’s swollen rivers. You can’t fight city hall, but when it works, it works – in spite of interfering bureaucrats, who showed us the worst examples of not only taking your eye off of the ball, but re-arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic as the boat sank. Natural disasters can bring out both the best and the worst in people. We’ve seen bureaucrats leading with their heads instead of their hearts, their rigid ideology instead of common sense. Let’s try and follow the example of our fellow Canadians in Calgary, and their tweet-loving mayor.

Just call us “The Do Drop Inn” The Accidental Farmwife DIANA FISHER

who appreciates nature as much as you do. I get a little nervous when I see the Farmer’s white-collar troupe of hunters heading out to the bush (the scientist, the professor, the veterinarian and naturalist), but as long as they are all facing in different directions I guess no one is in real danger. Eddie the Englishman is the most impressive sight, with his formal hunting tweeds and antique gun. I once invited some Cree hunters to our neck of the Eastern Ontario woods, because there was a shortage of geese in theirs. Imagine my surprise when six of them took me up on my offer, and a cavalcade of pick-up trucks loaded with coolers and hunting equipment showed up in our yard one night. Those hunters brought their wives,

children and a couple of elders with them for the trip. The women plucked the geese and prepared meals for the men while the elders gave advice and told stories. I spent the weekend making beds, doing laundry and dishes. I missed out on most of the stories because I wasn’t in the goose-plucking shed, but I just couldn’t stand the smell of fresh goose. Since that first contingent of 15, we had regular Cree visitors for several hunting seasons. I guess the word got out around the Northern Quebec communities when that first group came back with a truckload – about eighty – Canada Geese. They shared the meat with their family and friends and made plans to return to the bountiful region of Eastern Ontario. But when strange men I had never met or heard of kept showing up late at night, hungry and needing a bed for the night, I eventually had to put my foot down and say, ‘the Fisher Farm Inn is closed’. Instead I gave them the address of the McIntosh Inn in Morrisburg, where they could hunt along the St. Lawrence River in happiness. Recently we had musical guests at the radio station who ended up being

stranded for a few hours without their ride, in between appointments. When I noticed their eyes were at half mast I offered them the floor of the studio loft for a nap. An hour later it was time for lunch and they were still tired so I called the Farmer. He let me bring the whole band home to the farm for the afternoon, so they could rest up for their show at The Branch. I’m sure my daughter thinks I’m quite strange, bringing musicians home and putting them down for naps in the spare room. When they woke up three hours later they took a dip in the pool and enjoyed the sight and sounds of the sheep com-

ing in from the pasture at the end of the day. I was proud to be able to share my little slice of paradise with these wandering minstrels. I believe one of them said he is writing a song about it. I’m lucky the Farmer likes entertaining guests at the farm too. He especially loves to feed them. I think we have the same opinion; that things are much more enjoyable when you share them with others. That includes the beautiful, peaceful existence of life on the farm.

Being ‘ticked’ is a parenting hazard

By JENNIFER WESTENDORP jwestendorp@perfprint.ca

Being a parent is like walking blindly through the forest, only to have your way obstructed repeatedly by spider webs. Unexpected – annoying – gross feeling - impossible to remove. I love my son, more than anything in the whole world, but when it comes down to it life seems to be constantly playing practical jokes on me. I went camping for my birthday two weekends ago. We had a blast. Ate greasy food, got attacked by mosquitoes, accumulated unnecessary amounts of dirt, had a few successful fishing ventures – the usual incredibly good time associated with appreciating nature. The irony of it all occurred when I arrived home. No, our house wasn’t burgled. Nor was our dog missing – probably because I don’t have a dog, or any pet for that matter. Flood water was not up to our knees upon entrance. I was blissfully unawares of the problem until the following morning. As per usual, I struggled to wake my son from his endless 12-hour slumber. I shook him. Bounced the mattress a thousand times. Screamed his name repeatedly. Kissed his face all over. All the usual tricks. That’s when I saw it. A tiny black thing stuck behind his ear. I tried to rub it off, flick it off, pull it off – all to no avail. That’s when it hit me. It was a tick.

A disgusting, possibly disease ridden, bug had chosen my son as its victim. After recovering from the shock of finding my son invested by insects, I knew there was only one thing to do. I would have to touch it. I acted quickly, carefully removing the tick without damaging it, to avoid breaking pieces off inside my son’s skin. Then, I placed the tick - which was disturbingly still alive - in a plastic sandwich bag. My son didn’t even stir through this whole traumatic experience. When my son finally did arise, I showed him the bug that had been stuck inside him, to which he replied “cool.” Five-year-olds are strange creatures. The next day, I brought the tick to the Kemptville Health Unit and filled out some rather tedious paperwork. The tick has now been sent off to some lab in Toronto for testing relative to Lyme disease. Being a parent has given me infinitely more knowledge than any other aspect of my life. Every day is a new experience and every moment changes everything. I have accumulated encyclopedias worth of knowledge over the past five years, the first being ‘never plan anything.’ Life has a funny way of never working out the way you want, but rather better than you planned. I learned long ago to take each step in stride, otherwise you are liable to trip. Last year, I was the victim of a tick attack. I didn’t realize it had attached itself to me until nearly three days after returning from camping. I removed the tick from myself but frankly couldn’t be bothered to submit it for testing. The funny thing about parents is we don’t care about dying ourselves, but when it comes to our

kids, even the smallest things are worth the utmost attention. Another lesson learned - beware of the tiny black bugs.

Try to limit sugar in your diet EMC Lifestyle - Imagine consuming a 5 lb. bag of sugar each month. That is the amount of sugar each man, woman and child currently consumes. Most of it does not come from a sprinkle of sugar on your oatmeal. Sweeteners are labelled under 50 different names and hide out in almost all processed foods. Sugar is in baked beans, fruit-flavoured yogurt, smoothies and even the ketchup on your burger. Added sugars in the Canadian diet have grown exponentially since the early 1900s – by more than 2000 per cent. Your body needs a steady supply of blood sugar, the primary fuel burned by your cells. It plays a central role in physical and mental wellbeing. Your brain runs almost entirely on blood sugar (glucose) for energy. A baby growing in a mother’s womb relies on it too. Refined carbohydrates that live in white bread, cakes and many snack foods can make blood sugar skyrocket to dangerous levels. Manufacturers use high fructose corn syrup and sucrose as a preservative, stabilizer and taste enhancer

in processed foods. Take enough salt and sugar and just about anything will taste great! Add other 21st century factors that pack on pounds and disrupt blood sugar levels; including super-sized portions, fatty fast foods, inactivity and stress and you have a blood sugar crisis. The levels of type 2 diabetes are currently out of control. Doctors are diagnosing children at epidemic rates. Never, in the history of mankind has diabetes been so rampant. Diabetes can lead to heart disease, metabolic syndrome, obesity, nerve damage, vision problems, foot ulcers and many other complications. The best thing is that the

more we eat, the more we want to eat! Sugar provides an immediate energy surge with an extremely easy to digest food product. We can all relate to the 2 p.m. ‘midday slump,’ something sweet facilitates a quick sugar ‘high.’ Unfortunately this does not last long and the sugar ‘low’ is often worse by 3:30 p.m.! This merry-go-round of highs and lows leads to imbalance of almost every bodily system. The body requirements for sugar will vary depending on age, activity, weight, sex and glucose measurements in the blood. Your doctor or nutritionist will help determine the daily level of sugar you need on a daily basis. Most people consume far too much sugar. You can start by reading labels and keeping track of the amount of sugar consumed on a daily basis. It is always a good idea to track the types of sugar you consume as well. Oranges, apples and even carrots offer natural sugar in the form of glucose. Natural sugars are good for the body because they often contain fibre, minerals, vitamins and micronutrients that take time to digest. Foods that are not ‘processed’ and more

natural tend to stabilize blood sugar levels. For example, consuming a doughnut versus a bowl of oatmeal will affect your blood sugar in different ways. The oatmeal is obviously better. You are looking for foods that will create a ‘work project’ for your body. An orange is better than a glass of orange juice. Chewing on a raw carrot is far more work for your body than a carrot muffin. The idea is to look at each food you eat and decide if your body has to work to pull the nutrients out of that food or does it just slide through as a filler rather than offering the building blocks needed to build good health. We all know certain foods are better for us…but the cravings and stress often lead us down the quick path to satiate our appetites. Eat a variety of real food, eat less more often and eat mostly vegetables and fruits! Heather Westendorp is a graduate of the University of Guelph: Food, Nutrition and Risk Management Diploma. She has also lost over 50 lbs. and is now a healthy weight, improving her health status!

Red White and Blue

of quality. If blue is you, try these. Pacific Blue delphiniums, Sea Holly, Morning Glory, Nikko Blue Hydrangea, Campanula (bellflower), Salvia, Siberian Iris and yes even grapes and blueberries. Regardless of whether you’re a purist, a patriot or just passionate, there is a plant for you. Duckling update: Our drake “Desi” was just giving the new ducklings too much grief. He was chasing them all over the nursery and they kept coming back to Mom for protection. Because I’m Mom and I am busy at the nursery I decided to bring them home and let them mature in our pond and retire at night in the safety of “Duck Hilton”. The other day they had their first swim without their little web feet touching ground. When they were truly swimming in the pond they became ducks. They were having the time of their life splishing and splashing and just being ducks. When I call for my baby ducks, they line up and follow us to the duck house. When they get a little older we’ll try reintroducing them. They are well and they are gorgeous. They are pure white. They reflect the whole spectrum of visible light. They reflect the whole spectrum of emotion and yet they are true blue. Red, White and Blue takes on a whole new meaning for me. Garden well.

In a nod to our neighbours to the south, happy Independence Day. We have just finished celebrating Canada Day and it got me thinking about colours (or colors if you’re south of the border). It’s amazing how often the colours red, white and blue appear on flags and corporate logos. Why? Let’s take a quick look at what the colours have come to mean and how you can get them into your garden. RED: Red has been associated with danger, passion, blood, fire, Valentines and Christmas. All at the extreme end of emotion. Just as red is at the visible end of the spectrum. It is thought that primates developed the ability to detect red as a means of choosing ripe fruit. Dogs and cattle do not see red. It’s the movement of the matador’s cape that gets the bull all worked up. If red is your passion here are some suggestions. Maverick Red geraniums, Lucifer Crocosmia, Hope for Humanity rose, begonias, impatiens, poinsettias, and even strawberries and tomatoes. WHITE: White is what we see when light contains all the wavelengths of visible light. It has come to embody purity, cleanliness and honesty. Ever noticed that most Doctors, Chefs, Bakers and Butchers are garbed in white? If you’re a purist try these plants. Mock Orange, Iceberg Rose, Lily of the Valley, Snowday Pearl Bush, Bridalwreath or Snowmound Spirea, Yucca or Annabelle Hydrangea. BLUE: Blue is the colour of clear skies and the sea. It is the colour of Blue Chip, Blue Ribbon, blue collar, sadness, true blue, and Blue Bloods. In other words, faithful and

North Grenville DHS students put on successful production of ‘Loathsome Lady’ By JENNIFER WESTENDORP jwestendorp@perfprint.ca

EMC Events – The doors of the NGDHS theatre opened to 80 people on Thursday June 20 for the production of ‘Loathsome Lady.’ Members of the public, parents, teachers and students alike were invited to witness the conclusion of four months of hard work. “It was amazing, really incredible,” said Heather Mahaffey, one of the play directors. “It really came together and they did an outstanding job.” Mahaffey said the evening was a huge success, bringing in roughly $2,500 to purchase iPads for the school. “All the funds are being used to purchase iPads for the intermediate grades,” said Mahaffey. “They’re used to loan out to students to help support classroom learning.” The event included a silent auction, featuring 11 artistic pieces created by NGDHS students, a dinner, musical performances and the

much anticipated play. The doors opened at 5:30 p.m., at which time attendees were free to view the auction items and place bids. The intermediate jazz band played for the audience prior to the commencement of the play. A dinner of lasagna and Caesar salad was then served, after which the first three acts of the play began. The intermission was broken up by a clarinet quintet and a pianist. The final three acts were then performed and the evening concluded with the announcement of the silent auction winners. “There were outstanding performances, especially by Sam Wilkinson, who played the jester,” said Mahaffey. “King Arthur played by Meagan Mathieson and the black knight played by Sam Primeau were also excellent.” The play was about King Arthur being asked to solve an impossible question by the black knight. He had to succeed otherwise he would lose his life and his lands. The play featured 15 talented Grade 7 and 8 students from NGDHS. There were also a

handful of backstage helpers, who contributed greatly to the event’s success. Teachers at the school pitched in by doing make-up and serving the dinner. “The evening was a huge success,” said Mahaffey. Mahaffey said the new NGDHS facility made all the difference in terms of the event running smoothly. “We were able to easily serve the dinner because the stage was right there,” said Mahaffey. “The lighting and tech effects were all available right on stage.” Mahaffey said the play was a great example of inclusion because they were able to incorporate a visually impaired student and an autistic student, both of whom played roles. “The students worked incredible hard,” said Mahaffey. “They’re a great group of kids.” The students practiced two or three times a week since March to make the evening a success. The community looks forward to future performances.

A busy second half for the Ladies Golf League By CECILE FORTIER

EMC Sports - As we reach the mid-term of our golfing season, a very busy half awaits us. First there is the “Friendly”, then the Intersectional, the DickensonTray tournament, the “Ladies invite a Guess”, the Club Championship, the Senior Intersectional, and the end of our season with the “Thorpe Cup”. All require our undivided attention and skills, but most of all the pleasure and fun that we enjoy in these challenges. Tuesday, July 2 will be our “Friendly”, when we welcome players from: Cornwall, Iroquois, Morrisburg, Prescott and Williamsburg. But it seems that the “Gods of Golf” will not smile on us, but dump buckets of rain on our parade! We can only smile and take it on the chin. As a result, the fairways and greens are looking very healthy... The ladies organizing this event have work many long hours to make it a success. All should be congratulated. The first leg of the de Pencier matchplay tournament has been finish with Marg McCornock,

Lana Hanes, Pat Hayes and Pat Keeley moving up to the second leg of the match. It was difficult finding a dry day for the play, but all succeeded in doing it in the time allotted. The “Jean Hyndman” tournament was played on June 13 on a very nice, sunny, Summer day, with 11 players in the mix. In spite of the beautiful weather, the grounds were very wet and muddy because of previous rains. The ladies could only laugh at themselves hitting very muddy balls with water and mud flying all over them. Finding dry spots was difficult. But they had fun...The play was gross score minus the handicap to give a net score. The winner of the day was 1st --Pat Hayes with a net score of 66. 2nd --was a tie with Marjorie Graham and Lana Hanes with a score of 71. Congratulations Ladies! The end of the month play and dinner/meeting was rained out--again. Mary Shore, the president decided on a contingency in case of rain.

She announced that dinner would be served earlier and the ladies to arrive on time. It makes it easier for the chef. Nicole handed out the birdie pins for the month to: Brenda Macumber, Carolyn Richardson, Nancy Stelzer and Marg Mccornock who had 3 birdies and 2 were during her matchplay. Also a “break 100” pin to Brenda Macumber. Well done Ladies! The winner of the 50/50 was Etta Drost. The Intersectional will be on July 8 at Heritage G.C. in Lancaster. Players participating will be : Marg McCornock, Marjorie Graham, Pat Hayes, Cecile Fortier, Lana Hanes, Elaine MacNaughtan, Etta Drost, and Carolyn Richardson. Best of luck and keep your heads down, ladies! An amendment is needed to my last article, where I said that our chef was Eddie Watt. His name is Eddie Ward. Sorry, Eddie, you are a very good chef and you deserve all of our praises. You always serve us with a smile. Thanks Eddie!

Breast Cancer Foundation ‘Pink Tour’ rolls in Friday EMC News – Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) is going out on the road again this summer on the Pink Tour, letting women know that one third of breast cancers are preventable and that regular screening saves lives. The eye-catching pink bus pulls in to the Merrickville District Community Health Centre this Friday, July 5 from 1-5 p.m., one of 90 stops being made throughout the province. This year’s tour is empowering women to make informed choices and take steps to reduce their risk of developing breast cancer. Mortality rates for breast cancer are declining, thanks to improved treatments and earlier diagnoses, but one in nine Canadian women will still be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. While women aged 50 to 74 can receive a mammogram without a doctor’s referral and at no cost, currently only 61 per cent of women in Ontario are being screened and research shows that women are not aware that they can take steps to reduce their risk of breast cancer. “Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation is thrilled to be once again visiting over 90 communities this summer,” said Sandra Palmaro, CEO, CBCFOntario Region. “We hope that women and their friends and families stop by to learn about how they can reduce their risk of breast cancer and the benefits of breast cancer screening.” CBCF, with the support of CIBC and Shoppers Drug Mart, invites Ontarians to get on board the 46-foot Pink Tour bus to learn about steps they can take to help reduce their risk of breast cancer and about the benefits

of breast cancer screening. The Pink Tour is an engaging, interactive learning experience about breast health and while on board visitors can take fun quizzes, use interactive videos and record personal video pledges to live well. Women who are eligible will also

be able to sign up for a mammogram with the Ontario Breast Screening Program, a program administered by Cancer Care Ontario. “As part of our commitment to the health and well-being of Canadians and our specific focus on women’s health, the Pink Tour represents a

Local psychic to bring messages from spirit world to Kingston audience By LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com

EMC Entertainment – Do you want to experience something out of this world? If you would like to become inspired about your life, seek answers to questions that may be just a little out of reach, then try getting those answers from the other side, with the help of renowned psychic medium, Matthew Stapley. The Ottawa South resident and Carleton Place native will give you the opportunity to get messages from your dearly departed loved ones as he will bridge that gap from the spirit world to the earth plane on Friday, July 26. His live, three-part performance will kick off at 7:30 p.m. at the Residence Marriott Inn, Kingston. “It’s going to be awesome,” he said in a phone interview. Stapley is becoming a household name in the Nation’s Capital and beyond, with a television show on the Rogers Network, radio gigs, as well as personal readings and group sessions at cafés, book stores and the like. Stapley says he’s able to dial into messages from loved ones who have passed on and he delivers those messages in such a way as to bring hope, peace and love to the inquirer. The first part of the Kingston show is a 45-minute question-and-answer period on psychic ability. It will be a chance for people to ask Stapley about their own encounters, or ask him about his experience with the paranormal, mediumship and spirit. After a 10-minute break, he will return to the message portion of the show. “That’s the cool part that most people come for,” he said. “It’s where I work really hard to bridge a connection between spirit and the earth plane.

Stapely did a show at Kingston’s Baby Grand last year and it was sold out a week in advance. Because of the intensity of the messages and how he brings those messages to the inquisitive, Stapely prepares his own mind, thoughts and feelings prior to a show of this mag-

nitude. It’s not just another psychic reading. “It’s a lot of energy, but it’s nice. I have a good team of people working with me behind the scenes as well to help maintain my energy, and of course my spirit guides and loved ones in spirit, and my angels will help me maintain my energy level and the energy of the stage and make it conducive for that type of event.” Meditation is key, he says. “But honestly, I just jump in with both feet. The energy within that preparation is very important to

ensure people get the healing that they’re coming to get.” Stapley says the majority of people who attend an event like this, do so in hopes of hearing from loved ones who’ve passed and to help themselves in their own healing journeys. “If people are coming for that, then it’s the least I can do is to give them all I’ve got with that 100 per cent preparation,” he says.

In the beginning Stapley was just eight years old, and living in Carleton Place – where he lived until he was 20 – when he has his first psychic encounter. He was getting messages from his deceased grandfather, who was also a medium. “I went through periods when I was depressed and I shut down,” he says, as he wasn’t sure what he was encountering. “It’s only been the last year when I have opened up and told my story about growing up as a medium, and needing counselling. I was feeling so much from other people (spirit wise). I was doing readings, but I didn’t know how much Spirit was in my life until I had one psychiatrist tell me that I wasn’t sick and I had a gift.” He’s been working with it ever since. Now, that gift is hugely helpful, he says, not only in his own personal healing journey, but in those around him who seek his services. “When you devote yourself to something, whether it’s this, (or something else), there are times when it just comes up,” Stapley says when asked if he could just shut off the messages that he hears. “There are times when it comes out randomly… like if I’m in a lineup (grocery store, coffee shop) and someone asks me what I do for a living, and they’ll end up hearing from their (deceased) grandmother,” he says with a laugh. But he doesn’t just deliver messages without someone taking that initial step. “In order to do random messages they have to ask me what I do for a living,” he says. “That’s my rule for the Spirit World.”

PSYCHIC From page 37

worse, Stapley says that when he decided to switch gears from a medical lab technician to a full time psychic-medium, it opened up a huge part of his life – being in service and helping people. “I feel that this is what I’m here for… to bring people those messages.” A car accident in which he suffered a head injury really drove home the point that this is his gift, and he should be using it to the best of his ability. “The full time realization came about when I was 23,” he says, which was only four years ago. The best part of his gift is helping people, he says, but what’s the worst part? “No one’s ever asked me that,” he says. “That’s cool… I guess the worst part is the times where I’m helping someone, but the caliber of that message isn’t that strong. I will refund my client because I’m not getting what I want to get out a session. If it’s not up to

my standards, my client will not pay.” Stapley does have repeat clients, but cautions not to get too used to his services. “I would say that my services can be a great way to connect but I think there is a certain amount of personal responsibility that comes on my client’s part and on mine to ensure that the readings are a guiding tool, not a dependency,” he says. Sometimes, his friends bug him for free readings, but he doesn’t often get the right connections. “For me authenticity and integrity are so important in a reading and when I know someone too well I find that the principles of ethical spirit communication can be jeopardized,” he says. For the skeptic, a testimonial from an Ottawa lawyer, who would only share the initials M.Q., said that he tested Stapley on his ability to connect with his deceased father before he believed in Stapley’s psychic ability. “Matthew passed with flying colours. The amount of

information and the specificity of the information Matthew provided shocked me. Only my father and I could possibly have been aware of the events and information Matthew conveyed to me. I am definitely converted and believe in spirit and am convinced that Matthew is a medium capable of conveying messages from those passed on.” Business side of life Stapley and his partner Tristian Brine started their present business, TransdimensionalBeing Associates Inc. which aims to bring people to a better understanding of spirit within their lives. Brine, also a medium and healing energy facilitator, works with people who want to heal certain aspects of their lives.

Charity Motorcycle Run to support Interval House, hospital foundation July 7 EMC Events – On Sunday, July 7, motorcycle enthusiasts will once again ride together for the second annual Charity Motorcycle Run in support of two important local charities. Riders will gather at the Dan Peters Sales Centre, located at

3768 Highway 43 (Perth highway), before setting on a scenic 200-kilometre ride. The ride will travel through the beautiful countryside of Merrickville and along the St. Lawrence then on to Crosby, Westport and Rideau Ferry. It

ends at the Dan Peters Auction site at 182 Glenview Road where participants will enjoy a barbecue corn roast and a special live performance by Smith Falls’ very own Jeff Keays and friends. The proceeds from this

charity event will be divided between two local community organizations, Lanark County Interval House and the Smiths Falls Community Hospital Foundation. “Community support is vital to our success and we recognize how much work it takes to organize a great event like this one. We are thrilled that the Rideau Winery and Dan Peters Auctions have chosen our agency as one of the beneficiaries of the Char-

ity Motorcycle Run,” said Heather Whiting, fundraising and volunteer coordinator for Lanark County Interval House. All funds donated to Interval House and to the hospital foundation stay in the community where they will be used to fund important local programs and to support a list of essential hospital equipment. Registration will take place between 9 to 10:15 a.m. at the Dan Peters Sales Centre. The

cost is $25 for both riders and passengers and includes the meal and live music at the end of the run. Non-riders are also welcome to the after-run festivities for a cost of $10 per person. To join the ride, call the Rideau Winery at 613-2051500 or Dan Peters at 613284-8281 or Liquid Dreamz Tattoo 613-283-2600. Corporate sponsorship opportunities are also still available.

Transmission service: Don’t get given the slip EMC Lifestyle – Recently we had a discussion on the pros and cons of regular and preventative maintenance and automakers’ tendency to stretch their recommended service intervals in terms of time and mileage. A lot of dealerships as well as independent shops and mass merchandisers have started to suggest a general inspection combined with an engine oil and filter change two or three times a year to make sure their customers don’t get left on the side of the road. During these inspections, techs will inspect a number of vehicle systems and fluids and filters and one that is critical for continued reliable operation is the automatic transmission fluid. Vehicle makers differ quite a bit when it comes to time and mileage intervals for transmission fluid and filter replacement. Some are as low as 72K km and some are as high as 150K km. It’s always best to refer to your own vehicle’s owner’s manual to be certain of your vehicle’s needs. This fluid operates under pressure and at high temperatures. It also serves to collect small metal particles that wear off of various internal transmission surfaces as

a matter of normal wear and tear. These particles end up trapped in the transmission’s oil pan courtesy of a magnet placed there by the assembler. The fluid is used to transfer rotational force from the front of the transmission (where it’s bolted to the engine) to the rear where it connects to the final drive and drive axles. Repair shops, including dealerships will usually recommend one or two variations on replacing the fluid. The first involves removing the pan, draining whatever fluid comes out, replacing the filter and fluid. The downside with this is that it will only drain, on average, about 4 to 5 litres of the approximately 10-12 litre total that the transmission holds. A good portion of the fluid will remain in the torque convertor or in certain internal passages. If your vehicle requires fluid replacement at the low end of the interval spectrum (say 72K km), this method isn’t as bad as it sounds because over the course of two or three such services, the majority of the fluid will get exchanged. The second most popular method involves the use of specialized flushing equipment which pushes old fluid

Car Counsellor BRIAN TURNER

out of the transmission by means of a circulation pump. This will effectively remove over 90 per cent of the fluid but the downside here is that few shops recommend replacing the filter with this method. The best way is to flush the fluid out and have the filter replaced at the same time. The cost of this varies with vehicle types but the general range for the average vehicle is between $250 and $350. Leaving this maintenance item uncompleted can lead to internal transmission failure which can bring a minimum cost of around $2,500 for removal and a basic overhaul and a few days off the road or more. A lot of drivers wait until a poor shifting or slipping symptom arises before getting the service done and in many cases like this, power flushing the transmission will make things worse not better. Make sure this fluid is checked at every oil change and keep track of when its replacement

is due and get it done.

UCDSB encourages dialogue with community groups EMC News – Trustees at the Upper Canada District School Board want community groups that use their schools outside school hours to first contact the board before concluding that they may have to pay the board new fees. The board recently reviewed its community use of schools policy and procedure and found they weren’t consistently applied to all community groups. The result is that some groups may have to begin paying fees for using the school facilities.

“However, we don’t want any community group to assume that a fee will be charged,” outlined board chair Greg Pietersma. Some groups would be charged a fee to use facilities but there are exceptions, depending on the nature of the group, not-forprofit versus for-profit, etc. Before any community group concludes that they will have to pay a new fee, we encourage those groups to first contact the school board (1-800267-7131) and speak to Judi Piovesan, risk and community

outreach coordinator. The board is also establishing a focus group made up of principals, trustees, administrative staff and community users to identify issues within the procedure that negatively impact users and bring relevant recommendations to the Board’s strategic council for consideration. The recommendations cannot impact working conditions found in collective agreements, requiring additional staff, or adding to the cost of the program. Submitted by the UCDSB.

CDSBEO trustees approve compliant budget for 2013-14 school year EMC News – The following are highlights from the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario’s (CDSBEO) June 18 board of trustees meeting at the board office in Kemptville. The CDSBEO’s board of trustees has approved an operating budget of $163.4 million, and a capital budget of $10.4 million, for the 2013-14 school year. All expenditure areas were carefully reviewed to ensure excellence in Catholic program delivery for students across eastern Ontario. The budget provides for the required enhancements associated with the final year of two-year collective agreements, expiring Aug. 31, 2014. Trustees approved the budget at the board meeting held June 18. Brent Laton, chair, commended the group. “This budget will help to ensure that the 2013-14 year will be another successful year,” he said. “On behalf of the board of trustees, I extend my sincere gratitude for the work done by executive council, and the finance department.” Director of Education, William J. Gartland, was pleased with the report. “The budget is proof that our staff remains dedicated to student success. We are ensuring that our staff can continue to engage directly with our students, while providing a strong foundation for our youngest learners, as all schools will offer a full-day, every day kindergarten program next year,” he stated. “I am very pleased that we have achieved these goals while remaining excellent stewards of our financial resources.” Capital projects The board will complete capital related projects to address the final phase of accommodation requirements for full-day kindergarten at eight elementary schools. Construction/renovations will be finalized by the end of August 2014 at St. Edward, Westport; St. John Bosco, Brockville; St. Mary-St. Cecilia, Morrisburg; Bishop Macdonell, Cornwall; Iona Academy, Williamstown; St. Andrew’s, St. Andrews West; Sacred Heart, Cornwall; and Our Lady of Good Counsel, Ingleside. The board has also received $8.4 million for two capital priorities projects. A $1.8 million, three classroom addition at St. Mary-St. Cecilia in Morrisburg, and a $6.6 million, 12-classroom addition to Notre Dame Catholic High School in Carleton Place. The board will also receive a School Condition Improvement allocation of $1.3 million to help address the much needed facility repairs and upgrades. Early learning program The budget includes provisions to implement teacher-directed full-day, every day, junior and senior kindergarten programs in September 2013, at all 29 CDSBEO elementary schools across the board. Elementary class size The 2013-2014 financial estimates allow the board to continue to remain compliant with the provincially mandated primary class size requirement.

Mike Ogilvie to bring screaming 1982 Dodge Rampage out for Merrickville car show EMC Lifestyle - Mike Ogilvie of Jasper, Ont., near Smiths Falls, owns a 1982 Dodge Rampage with far more horsepower than it had when new: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I originally got the idea for this vehicle from a late â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;80s catalogue, where I saw a Rampage converted to rear-wheel drive. After returning from the Street Machine Nationals in Illinois in 1990, I started looking for one. The Rampage was originally designed off the Omni but with a truck bed and tailgate similar to an El Camino. They were front-wheeldrive and with four cylinders. They were only built from â&#x20AC;&#x2122;82 to â&#x20AC;&#x2122;85 and I wanted the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;82 (best looking). After some

searching, my girlfriend (now my wife) saw one at our local car dealer in Smiths Falls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only pieces I needed were the body and a few interior pieces. These cars were uni-body so the removal of the body was very time-consuming. We constructed a tube chassis with roll cage and mounted the Rampage body on it. The drivetrain has a 448 cid Big Block Dodge, a 727

auto trans, and 8 ž rear differential. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was ready for the Street Machine Nationals in 1991 where it was a big hit and landed on the front cover of Car Craft magazine. We showed and raced the Rampage from 1991 to 1999 and received many awards and many magazine features and articles. In 1999 I crashed the car at a drag strip and the Rampage

sat until 2004 when friends and co-workers decided we should rebuild it and go drag racing again. We raced it only one night and it went back into storage while I started racing dragsters in NHRA and IHRA competition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the highlights in the Rampageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career was when I hauled it down to Ocala, Florida, in 1994 to the Don Garlits Museum for a Mopar show. My plan was to try and get him to sign the wing. I have been a huge Garlits fan since I was

a kid. He not only signed the wing but I won the show! â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year the guys from the Merrickville Car Show asked me if I still had the Rampage because they had been asked by some people where it was. So I have decided to bring it out for the 2013 show on Sunday, July 14. This car has been a huge part of my life for a lot of years so it is cool to be getting it back out for everyone to see and relive all the memories.â&#x20AC;? Mike and his wife Vicki op-

All students went on to participate at the Provincial event in Toronto in May. • Olivia Ivanic, Notre Dame Catholic High School (CHS), and Zachary Bertinato, St. Thomas Aquinas CHS: Olivia Ivanic and Zachary Bertinato applied to the Youth Ambassadors Program, sponsored by Fulbright Canada.

I am very proud of their accomplishments,” expressed Gartland. Laton, also congratulated this year’s winners. “On behalf of the entire board of trustees, I offer my congratulations to this year’s winners, and offer my gratitude for being such wonderful ambassadors for our board,” he stated.

Director brings perfect summer UCDSB signs agreement with Eastern Ontario Network action fare to the big screen My Take

MARK HASKINS

hesitate to start kicking butt to find her. Meanwhile President Sawyer (Jamie Fox) is being hurried to a secure location within the White House when he’s betrayed by one of his own. The head of his security detail, Martin Walker (James Woods), is the one behind the entire attack. Luckily for Sawyer, John happens upon them just in time. John has to find a way to get the President out of the White House, rescue the hostages, and save his daughter. He has some help from the outside by way of agent Finnerty (Maggie Gyllenhaal), but for the most part it’s just John and President Sawyer against a mad man and his army of mercenaries. I don’t know if Emmerich did it on purpose or if he claims it’s just a coincidence, but the similarities between White House Down and Die Hard are remarkable to say the least. I

suppose it doesn’t really matter because Emmerich pulls it off. White House Down is a good summer action film. Likeable heroes, despicable villains, a larger-than-life scenario, a few plot twists, a few more oneliners, and a whole lot of action make it well worth seeing. Channing Tatum and Jamie Fox take a good action movie and make it a fun action movie. On their own there’s no question of their talent, but together something special happens. They are funny, they are charming and they are heroic on a whole other level. They are so much fun to watch I hope they do another film together. The rest of the cast isn’t too bad either. Joey King definitely steals the show and Maggie Gyllenhaal nails the part of the intelligent and forceful Secret Service agent. It takes a great actor to play a great villain and James Woods is most certainly a great actor. White House Down is just what I look for in a summer action film. Enough serious action to get the heart pounding, but a light enough plot to keep me laughing. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

broadcasts for UCTV, as well as working with our schools – teachers and students from grades 5 to 12 – on a curriculum which will teach the students the techniques, processes and practises needed to create, produce, direct, film and participate in live and recorded broadcasting. The UCDSB CRM department and EON will be working on the initial planning stages of this agreement throughout the summer, with plans to create student-focused shows related to sports, high school life, hospitality programs, junior politics, talent, drama and more.

In addition, those interested in online print and photography will have the opportunity to create featured content on EasternOntarioNetwork.com. “This is at the very beginning stages, but it’s an exciting opportunity for the Upper Canada District School Board,” says David K. Thomas, UCDSB Director of Education. “This opportunity will drastically increase the number of events which can be shared with parents and community members, further increasing the board’s visibility around the world.” The agreement comes into effect September 2013.

MOVIE: White House Down STARRING: Channing Tatum, Jamie Fox, Joey King, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and James Woods DIRECTOR: Roland Emmerich RATING: PG Entertainment - I really enjoyed Die Hard 6… I mean White House Down. Okay so White House Down is basically Die Hard with a bit of Die Hard 3 thrown in, but Die Hard is one of my favourite movies, and Roland Emmerich did it well so I’m all right with it. The premise is simple. A group of highly trained mercenaries, pretending to be terrorists, infiltrate the White House and orchestrate a violent take over. On the surface it looks like an elaborate robbery, but in truth there’s something much more sinister happening. John Cale (Channing Tatum) is taking the tour with his daughter Emily (Joey King) when the White House gets attacked. John’s ex-military working as a guard for the Speaker of the House, and has aspirations of joining the secret service. So when John and Emily get separated he doesn’t

Company of Fools present ‘The Merry Wives of Windsor’ July 11 at MERA English, French and Welsh all collide in this classic clash of cultures, combat of convention and battle of the sexes. Falstaff, a rascally rogue with a penchant for drink, women and mischief, arrives in the small town of Windsor to get up to no good. Underestimating the intellect of the middle class, he attempts to woo two married ladies at the same time, not realizing for a second that they are onto him. “The wives of Windsor are merry indeed as they use and abuse Falstaff for their own amusement – giving him hard-won lessons in matters of the heart (and maybe teaching their husbands a thing or two as well)! All set against the natural backdrop of MERA’s gardens, shaken and stirred with an Edwardian twist. This highly physical production promises to have audiences of all ages rolling in the aisles (or on

the lawn, rather).” To enjoy a full dinnerand-theatre evening, arrive at 5:30 p.m. for the farmers’ Mmarket supper with an à la carte menu of savories and sweets, cold drinks and barista service. We will send more details on the evening’s menu closer to the day of the performance. Bring your own plates and cutlery. Dinner service clos-

2013 PRICEDEX SUMMER SERIES “The Best Of The Best” ABBAMANIA & NIGHT FEVER

R0012185658_0704

EMC Entertainment – It’s officially an annual tradition. The McDonald’s Corners Farmers’ Market is hosting the Company of Fools at the MERA Schoolhouse on Thursday evening, July 11. This year’s Shakespearein-the-park production is ‘The Merry Wives of Windsor’. You already know from the title that it’s a comedy, and with the Fools’ irreverent use of physical theatre techniques, you know it will be hilarious. The Company of Fools is an Ottawa-based troupe inspired by the rogue Elizabethan players that once entertained audiences outdoors and at the Globe theatre. Being Fools, they combine the classical text with clowning, masks and puppetry. The Fools summarize their approach to The Merry Wives like this: “Love and marriage, jealousy and revenge, men and women,
