EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The North Grenville Public Library (NGPL) will be showcasing its services and offering some special events to residents as it prepares to celebrate Ontario Public Library Week Oct. 14 to 20. The week carries the theme â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Libraries Connect,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and promotes the important contributions libraries make to their communities in the form of education and literacy. October also serves as Canadian Library Month. According to NGPL chief executive officer (CEO) Sue Higgins, in addition to regular programming, a number of activities have been planned to encourage local residents to get better acquainted with their library. â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Libraries Connectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is the theme this year and we want people to come in and see what we can offer them,â&#x20AC;? she noted. Bedtime Story Hour helps kick off the week Tuesday, Oct. 16 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. where the 2012-2013 list of Read to Every Kid Every Day books will be launched. (The Leeds-Grenville county wide launch will take place in Merrickville). People can vote on their favourite books with the winner being announced on Family Literacy Day in January. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will announce the books and (childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s librarian) Sue Bergeron will read from some of them that eve-

ning,â&#x20AC;? Higgins said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The kids come in with their pajamas and bring snuggly toys. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always very well-attended. The nice thing is that we get whole families coming in for that.â&#x20AC;? Other childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s activities for the week include Drop-in Story Hour Friday, Oct. 20 from 10 to 11 a.m., as well as two special programs: Lego Mini-Builders (for ages four to six) on Wednesday, Oct. 17 from 4 to 5 p.m.; and Pokemon Palooza (for ages six and up) on Saturday, Oct. 20 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Seating for these programs are limited and those interested in attending are asked to pre-register at kids@ngpl.ca or call 613-2584711. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did Pokemon Palooza in the summer as part of our summer reading program and it was very well attended and brought lots of boys into the library, as did the Lego program,â&#x20AC;? Higgins explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of these activities build on literacy and numeracy skills as well as social skills. Kids must work together and share.â&#x20AC;? Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also programming for adults. The NGPLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two knitting groups Kniterary at Night (Oct. 16 at 7 p.m.) and Kniterary (Oct. 17 at 1 p.m.) will take place, as will the popular Youngsters of Yore seniors group Oct. 18 at 1:30 p.m., and the Valley Writersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Guild are set to meet Oct. 20 from 10 a.m. to noon. The public is welcome to attend any of these events. The highlight of the week comes Oct. 18 at 7 p.m. when guest author Jennifer DeBruin

will read from her recently published novel â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A Walk with Mary,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; focused on the Lost Villages of the St. Lawrence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The novel follows the Phillips family who settle in the village of Moulinette, on the shores of the St. Lawrence,â&#x20AC;? notes a release about the book. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lifetime she witnesses the advent of the automobile, the tuberculosis pandemic, the war, the Great Depression and the creation of the St. Lawrence Seaway. The story of the Lost Villages is a popular one in eastern Ontario and many people have memories or have heard the stories from their parents and grandparents.â&#x20AC;? DeBruin wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just be reading selections from the book, she will also talk about her experiences in writing her first novel and copies of the book will be available for purchase. Higgins said appearances by local guest authors have been a popular addition to the library and were held on Monday evenings last year. This fall, sessions have been switched to Thursday nights, with Oxford Stationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Michael McCann Nov. 1. To help wrap up Ontario Public Library Week, the Friends of the NGPL will participate in an â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;idea exchangeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Friday, Oct. 19 hosted by the Southern Ontario Library Service. Friends groups from across eastern Ontario are invited to the session, taking place from 1 to 4 p.m., to learn about what efforts other groups are undertaking. For information on this initiative, please

call Rob Lavery at 1-800-3875765 ext. 5137. Book club starts this fall With book clubs for tweens and teens, NGPL is adding an adult book club to the mix Wednesday, Nov. 7 at 7 p.m. Higgins said this will be a library-hosted book club and extra copies of the first book to be featured, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Crow Lakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; by Mary Lawson, have been purchased. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been wanting to do this for a while and just havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had the time, but staff have taken this on and lots of people were interested so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re now getting it going,â&#x20AC;? she explained. The book club will meet

Out with a bang – coordinator steps down: Kidney Gift of Life Walk raises more than $14,000 By LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com

Patricia Mackler, a 10 year dialysis patient (second from right), posed with her family members before they headed out on the 5km Gift Of Life Walk. Also “When we switched to a walk event, the last two years brought in $6,000, which was wonderful, but I still had the desire to reach the goal at

least especially this year as I had decided this would be my last year to co-ordinate this event.” With a barbecue in Septem-

pictured are Jeffery, Marla, Avery, Micayla, Braedan, Laura and Tommy Mackler, Nick and Brenda White and Cathy Mitchell. ber to help promote the event, and the naming of John Rivington as this year’s Kidney Foundation Ambassador, the public and the local businesses came through with flying colours, she said. “If it wasn’t for the businesses – and I can’t stress

enough to shop locally because that is what enables them to support things like this – it would be a different story,” she said. “Shopping locally is so important. It’s really what goes on behind the scenes as to how successful we have been.”

R0021652762_1004

EMC News – Brenda Dube says she’s ecstatic with the results from this year’s Gift of Life Walk for the Kidney Foundation of Canada as more than $14,000 has been raised and money is still coming in. “The goal has always been to reach $8,000,” said local organizer Brenda Dube, who added this is her final year at the helm of kidney ship. “I have been in contact with a woman and she is interested in taking over,” she said, as she added that she wants to spend more time as a Big Sister with Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Lanark County. She is also involved with the Multiple Sclerosis Society and its carnation campaign in the spring. Plus, she wants to get back to working full time hours. “I just don’t have as much time anymore,” she said. “I’m confident that the ball will keep rolling.” Before the Give the Gift of Life Walk started, there was the Roundup for Research Events Dube had organized. It did very well by bringing in $10,000 and $12,000.

Dube says she’s blown away as the numbers are still growing for this year’s walk event. “There are a few outside pledges that have not been accounted for and will be trickling in for a short time still. Where we stand right now, it has raised well over $14,000 and I feel quite confident it will reach over $15,000 plus by the time it is all said and done.” Dube noted that the media coverage, the sponsorship and community support has been wonderful this year, and helped to account for the larger amount of funds raised. “I am so grateful for the media coverage I received and the participants desire to raise those funds and of course the contributors fulfilling those pledges,” she said. Dube added that it’s been fun to organize this event, but feels it’s time to step down. “It’s been a wonderful experience,” she said. “But I really feel that it’s time for me to take a back seat. The community has been wonderful to support this event for all these years and I’m thankful for that.” More than 60 walkers took part in the event – double the amount of people from last year.

Despite the drizzle, participants came out to the Gift for Life Walk at the Crystal Palace in Perth on Sunday. Proceeds from this event go towards both research and funding local programs that help patients affected by kidney disease in Ontario. Local businesses donated items to be raffled and auctioned to raise additional funds that help fund local programs such as peer to peer support, renal friendly cooking classes and financial aid.

Project Assist supports firefighter training in Elizabethtown-Kitley and Merrickville-Wolford Township EMC News – Enbridge Gas Distribution is teaming up with the Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council to help the Township of Elizabethtown-Kitley and the Village of MerrickvilleWolford purchase firefighting training education programs. “Firefighting is a dangerous and unpredictable profession,” said Ted Wieclawek, Ontario Fire Marshal and Chair of the Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council. “Regular training is an important part of being prepared for any hazardous situation. Enbridge’s Project Assist improves access to training materials for municipal fire departments and positively contributes to overall firefighter health and safety.” “With the assistance provided by Enbridge to purchase additional recognized training material through Project Assist and the Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council, our fire department’s training program and training library will be richly enhanced for present and future member’s training requirements. Without this support in the economic climate that we now are affected by, we could not dream of purchasing the additional training materials now that is made possible by this partnership,” says Fire Chief Jim Donovan. “It is my pleasure on behalf of Council, Township residents and our volunteer firefighters to express our appreciation to Enbridge Gas Distribution and the Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council for their support and recognition of the service provided by firefighters in communities across Ontario.

EMC Entertainment â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would rather have a dog.â&#x20AC;? This is one of the lines to be spoken by the blind heroine in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wait Until Darkâ&#x20AC;?, Perthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Studio Theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first production of the season. It was this line that got director Norma Cummingsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; wheels of thought turning. For every adult ticket sold for this production, premiering Oct. 11, $1 will be donated to the Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We thought it would be a nice hookup between this kind of a play and the guide dogs,â&#x20AC;? Cummings commented Sept. 26, amidst construction of the set. It was day five of building the basement apartment scene. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We strive for good will in the community. Part of our mandate is to serve the community,â&#x20AC;? explained Penny Silberhorn, with the Studio Theatre. She said the theatre gives actors an area to act, directors a place to direct. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We try as much as we can to put some of our money back into the community.â&#x20AC;? In addition to a portion of ticket sales going to the cause, the Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind will also feature a promotional setup in the lobby as well as a donation dog (whereby donations can be dropped into) during the performance. Not only is the Studio Theatre giving back to the community via the donation, they have also been hard at work preparing the performance. Calling it a â&#x20AC;&#x153;pulse pounding thrillerâ&#x20AC;? the cast has been hard at work since the last part of August. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a big team effort,â&#x20AC;? Cummings smiled. The eight character play fea-

ing aware of what is happening, Susy refuses to give up the dollâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s location and a dangerous game of cat and mouse is unleashed. Her only way out is to turn her blindness into an advantage, she turns off all the lights when darkness falls â&#x20AC;&#x201C; leaving them both in the dark, until the game is over. The performance takes place Oct. 11, 12, 13, 19, 20 at 8 p.m. with 2 p.m. Sunday matinees on Oct. 14 and 21. Tickets are $20 each and can be purchased at The Book Nook in Perth, $22 at Tickets Please (ticketsplease.ca; 613485-6434), and $22 cash at the box office on show nights. Students with ID pay just $10 at the door. The Studio Theatre is located at 63 Gore Street East in Perth. Visit studiotheatreperth.com for group rates and further details.

tures some well known actors and actresses including Danielle MacDonald as Susy, Paul Roach as Roat, with veterans Hugh McCulloch, Lucas Tennant, Alfred Von Mirbach and a new young actor, Meaghan Brackenbury - an all-star cast. Rounding out the cast are David Parry and Yogi Sepp. The play itself centres around Susy, who is blind and her husband Sam Hendrix. In the play, they are convinced by a strange woman to transport a doll across the Canadian border. What they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know is that sewn within this doll is a quantity of heroin, heroin which villain Roat canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to get his hands on. When the strange woman who persuaded them into bringing the doll across the border is murdered, Roat convinces Susy the police suspect Sam as the murderer and that the doll is evidence. Becom-

Enjoy abundance of music at Merrickville Jazz Fest Oct. 11 to 14 EMC Entertainment – From Thursday, Oct. 11 to Sunday, Oct. 14, you can enjoy a scenic fall drive, spend the day or the weekend in the charming village of Merrickville, and enjoy Merrickville Jazz Fest. Due to the success of last year’s jazz festival – Merrickville’s first – this year’s festival features twice as many performers, a number of whom have appeared in the Ottawa Jazz Festival, and twice as many venues. The 19 performances in this year’s festival offer a range of jazz styles from traditional to modern. The nine venues offer festival goers the opportunity to enjoy these performers in a concert environment, in a dining environment, or in a more casual environment. This year’s festival also features a big band dance for ballroom and swing dancers. The village of Merrickville, ‘The Jewel of the Rideau’, is nestled on the historic Rideau Canal (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) near its midpoint, less than an hour’s drive from Ottawa. Merrickville has been dubbed ‘Canada’s Most Beautiful Village’ by Communities in Bloom, and has more designated heritage buildings than any other Ontario community of similar size. Merrickville is a unique and vibrant community, renowned for its boutiques, which are filled with one-ofa-kind items, many made by local artists and artisans. Its heritage buildings, historic setting, places to stay, boutiques, shops, restaurants, and small-town hospitality have made Merrickville a favourite get-away spot for a day, overnight, or longer. A village event During the jazz festival, a

requires either an event ticket, which provides admission for one person to any single event, or a weekend passport, which provides admission for one person to all events. Event tickets are $15, and weekend passports are $59.95. Tickets and passports can be purchased: in person in advance or during the festival from several Merrickville businesses; by phoning the Baldachin Inn at 613-2694223 (toll free 1-877-8818874) in advance or during the festival, using Visa or MasterCard; and at the door, using cash or cheque. Please note that, for events held at restaurant venues during meal time, it is recommended you make a reservation by contacting the restaurant directly. Visit the festival website at merrickvillejazzfest.com for detailed information on how to obtain event tickets and weekend passports and for any other information you might be looking to find.

Jazz pianist Miguel de Armas is one of many talented performers who will take over Merrickville for the village’s second annual Jazz Fest Oct. 11 to 14. de Armas number of Merrickville businesses will be offering ‘jazz festival’ discounts and/or sales to holders of event tickets or weekend passports. As an added bonus, join in the village fun by finding the scarecrows displayed throughout the village, and qualify for a prize by voting for the most creatively decorated one!

From Truth to Reconciliation seminar - bringing all together survivors. “My Algonquin culture, I felt I had to keep it under wraps,” Larry McDermott, noted to the small crowd that morning at Notre Dame Catholic High School, referring to his 28 years in municipal politics. McDermott is a member of the Shabot Obaadjiwan First Nation. The day long event, “is a beginning. To open the minds and hearts of people living in the area,” noted Tracey Paetzold, a member of the Social Concerns Committee of Carleton Place, a co-host for the event along with KAIROS: Canadian Ecumenical Justice Initiatives, Amnesty International, the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario, NDCHS and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada. McDermott opened the day’s events speaking on First Nation’s history as well as touching on some of his own personal experiences. “Often I felt sad in my heart with what I witnessed,” he said candidly. “There wasn’t a way to talk about being Algonquin in Lanark County.” He spoke once of attending a municipal council session where funding was

EMC News - Coming together as strangers and leaving as friends was perhaps the spirit behind From Truth to Reconciliation, held Sept. 29 in Carleton Place. The purpose of the day, was to bring together young and old, Indigenous and non-Indigenous, church and secular in a shared journey of listening, learning and reconciliation. The “all star line up” on the agenda that day also included James Bartleman, former Lieutenant Governor for Ontario from 2002 to 2007, and a member of the Chippewas of Mnjikanina First Nation. Bartleman is also an author. Also on hand to share her journey as a survivor of St. Michael’s Residential School in Duck Lake, Saskatchewan was Irene Lindsay, an Ottawa resident and descendant from the Cree/Sioux community of Wakaw, Saskatchewan. From the early 1830s to 1998, over 150,000 First Nation, Inuit, and Metis were forced to attend government funded, church run residential schools - the point was to “assimilate them into the dominant culture.” Currently, there are estimates of 80,000 Residential School

being discussed for an Aboriginal celebratory event. However the event never came to be, as one member of the municipal council would not support putting funding towards an event for “pagans.” “We have to keep working, keep recognizing all are sacred. The creator has created all of us,” he commented. Speaking after McDermott, Bartleman explained from his seat, he grew up in an era where minorities were discriminated against. Growing up, his family lived in a tent by the village dump. He and his brother used to chase the garbage truck up the road, “it was the days before garage sales” and garbage trucks which compacted items. “We chased the garbage truck up to the road and poured through stuff.” It was in piles of garbage that Bartleman perhaps came across the greatest gift he could ever have found. Comic books. It was within those pages that he learned to read and “developed a great love of books.” He recalled he and his family being called “dirty halfbreeds”, but he also will never forget becom-

ing friends with the people, “who called us those horrible things.” Aside from literacy being a focus for Bartleman, he also focuses on mental health and suicide as they remain important to him as well. He recalled using his government plane to visit First Nations communities up in Northern Ontario. One trip there was a large crowd on the tarmac. When he inquired what was happening, he was told a young 12 year old girl had committed suicide and her body was being taken away. “There is this tremendous despair amongst native youth in Northern Ontario. They are killing themselves at an amazing rate.” As a legacy, the James Bartleman Aboriginal Youth Creative Writing Award was created. This award recognizes Aboriginal youth for their creative writing talents. These awards are given out yearly.

Seniors’ Expo a success; addresses the needs of the area’s aging population By TARA GESNER tgesner@perfprint.ca

EMC News – With a never-ending flow of visitor traffic from beginning to end, exhibitors at the 2012 Seniors’ Expo found numerous opportunities to engage seniors, family members and caregivers living in Mississippi Mills and district in meaningful conversation. It was a success! Celebrating its second year on Thursday, Sept. 13 at the Almonte and District Community Centre, the free of charge event was sponsored by CARP (Canadian Association of Retired Persons) and hosted by Almonte Baptist Church (ABC), the Mills Community Support Corporation (MCSC) and the Alzheimer Society of Lanark County (AsoLC). It is the brainchild of Margo Smith, ABC member. Individuals time and again are not familiar with the variety of neighbourhood services available until they are in need of them. The expo brings this awareness – in a friendly environment – by way of direct contact with exhibitors. Festivities included short seminars by local professionals, musical entertainment, refreshments, draws and door prizes.

Mississippi Mills councillor Val Wilkinson joined representatives from CARP, ABC, MCSC and AsoLC for the official opening ceremony and ribbon cutting. “We are here today to make sure seniors receive a heads up of what services are available should they need them,” said ABC’s Pastor Paul Benson. He called the expo a vision – a vision of passionate people. “They knew it would be helpful to the community,” he said. On behalf of the mayor and council, Wilkinson said it was important to welcome all visitors to the expo. “We must thank the volunteers,” she said, “as something this size does not run on its own.” The Seniors’ Expo was the start of a celebration that leds to Oct. 1 and the International Day Older Persons, a day decreed by the United Nations in 1990. Immediately following the affair, CARP – in the process of setting up a Lanark County chapter – hosted a general membership meeting in the upper hall of the community centre to establish a board of directors. Last year’s expo took place at the Almonte Civitan Hall.

Scoring one for Henderson

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Health unit commends woman for awareness efforts DEAR EDITOR:

On behalf of the Tri-county area of the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit we would like to acknowledge the efforts of Brenda Kelford in raising awareness in the community with regards to infant communication methods and the message of - period of PURPLE crying, a program targeting new parents and their families. Crying is how babies express their needs and communicate with the people around them. Some babies cry more than others. New information suggests that what used to be called colic is actually a normal part of a baby’s development. All babies go through a period early in life when they cry more than at any other time. Some practitioners refer to this as the period of purple crying. PURPLE is an acronym used to describe baby’s crying. Peak of Crying – babies begin to cry more and more each week, usually the most at 2 months, and then usually less at 3-5 months. Unexpected – crying can start and stop without an obvious cause or reason why. Resists Soothing – no matter what you try, you’re baby will not stop crying. Pain-Like Face –

the crying baby may look like they’re in pain, even though they are not. Long Lasting – crying can last as long as 5 hours a day or more. Evening – baby’s crying may occur in late afternoon or evenings. Programs exist in some hospitals across Canada to raise awareness of the Period of PURPLE Crying for parents of new babies, in an attempt to lower the risk of Shaken Baby Syndrome. Crying is the most common trigger causing a parent/ caregiver to shake a baby. Current research is underway to determine the effectiveness of these programs in reducing the rate of Shaken Baby Syndrome. As an agency that adopts practice based on evidence-based research, the Health Unit is in support of raising awareness about the Period of PURPLE Crying and will continue to monitor the future results on the effectiveness of this prevention program.

EMC Editorial – It was the goal heard around the world. But today, 40 years after Paul Henderson buried the puck past a sprawling Vladislav Tretiak to secure the win for Canada in the historic 1972 Summit Series against the Soviet Union, the scoring hero remains an outsider to the Hockey Hall of Fame. Today, our local Senator wants to change that. Bob Runciman, long-time MPP for Leeds-Grenville who now serves in the Red Chamber as representative of the Thousand Islands and Rideau Lakes, has initiated an online petition he hopes will convince the powers-that-be that Henderson’s exclusion must end. Certainly the argument can be made, and has been made by his detractors, that Henderson’s overall numbers don’t measure up to the standards for induction. That his years spent with the Toronto Maple Leafs were hardly spectacular and that his defecting to the World Hockey Association (WHA) didn’t do him any favours either. But let’s face it. Not all of those who have found favour with the selection committee in recent years have had eye-popping playing careers. Someone like a Cam Neely didn’t come close to a thousand points but his grit and hard-nosed play captivated fans and earned special recognition. There are other examples where players may not have fit the profile of a hall of famer in terms of goals and assists but who managed to rise to prominence in other ways. Henderson is one of those cases. While you will never hear it from him, there has been a steady call from his supporters over the years, people who suggest it is a travesty that Paul Henderson has not been enshrined yet. We would have to agree. Henderson’s heroics stand the test of time. The man deserves his spot alongside the greats of the game. Celebrating the 40th anniversary of that incredible series victory, newspapers and television networks have all revisited the event in recent weeks. And the pinnacle, without a doubt, is Henderson’s goal. It’s not out of line to suggest that without Henderson – who scored the winning goal in each of the last three series games – Canadian hockey would be very different today. Runciman’s is the latest attempt to fix this wrong. To join the petition, log on to his website at www.bobrunciman.com and follow the prompts. This is hockey fans’ chance to score one for Henderson.

Plenty to be thankful for at this time of year EMC Lifestyle - Every day back in the ’30s, according to Mother, was a day of thanksgiving. Looking back, there was indeed much to be thankful for. And as Thanksgiving is upon us, perhaps it is appropriate that those things we took for granted so many years ago, should be remembered. So what are some of the memories of those Depression years that have lasted through the decades, and in recalling them, have me wondering what has happened to what we took for granted so long ago? Let me turn back the clock, and let me take you back to a more gentle time, as I recall with thankfulness lessons learned and a way of life that

was more safe and secure. I will be forever grateful that I lived in a time when it was perfectly safe to walk three miles of back country roads to a school without fear. Even in the cities so far away, children felt secure, and a Mother’s warning was not to be wary of strangers, but rather to keep out of the ditches of water so that we wouldn’t catch our deaths of cold. I am thankful I lived in an

era where the owner of the General Store trusted his customers. Where you filled your own bag of cookies, put it on the scale yourself, and had the cost added to your Mother’s bill which hung on a nail behind the counter. And if you didn’t have the money to pay for your groceries, you could offer a trade. Where sometimes weeks would go by, and no money changed hands. It was a time when a young child was taught that honesty was all a part of doing business. I am thankful today that I grew up in an era where a deal was made with the simple shake of a hand. And it was binding. It didn’t take a lawyer to draw up papers to trade

a couple head of cattle for an old model T, or a load of hay, for a steer, or a few loads of gravel for your first car. Today, I am thankful I grew up in a home where there wasn’t a lot of money for frivolities. It was a time when we children made our own fun...toys from a piece of whittled wood, playthings like empty spools of thread, a button box, and Eaton’s catalogue...all filling hours of fun and not costing a penny! I am thankful today that because we lived in a house overflowing with aunts and uncles, cousins, and grandparents, I learned at an early age what it meant to be tolerant.

ceive. Giving up our bed for an elderly aunt, had Mother reminding us how the aunt enriched our lives with her stories, her hand-knitted mitts, and pans of Johnny Cake, the best I have ever tasted. Today, I am thankful we had a wonderful doctor who would drive out from Renfrew, plowing through snow and blinding rain, and whose only pay might be a dressed chicken, or a couple dozen eggs and some fresh butter. And I remember his sitting by the bed of a very sick little girl until the dawn crept into my bedroom window and my fever broke. I am thankful today that I grew up in a home where every child had a special worth.

Where even the youngest was made to feel important, and daily chores, done to a parent’s satisfaction, was all part of growing up. We were taught that it was all right to fail, and that from each failure came a lesson. This is the legacy handed down to us by a generation of people who, although never rich in material wealth, were rich in the things that mattered. This is the time to be thankful for that era that made us what we are today, and to be truly thankful for all the blessings we enjoy today living in a free and bountiful country. May each of you have a happy and blessed “Thanksgiving.”

to answer everyone’s questions? And don’t forget the legal side of things. Do you know enough about the law to be able to prepare documents which will protect you in case of a lawsuit? Finally, you must be prepared to gather all the necessary documents together which the eventual buyer will need to finance the purchase and which the lawyer or no-

tary will require. Being a real estate agent is a profession which demands a great deal of training. These days, the requirements of the different provincial governments and professional bodies are very strict as there are many complex laws governing real estate transactions.

REAL ESTATE

So, you want to buy a new home and you have found a few potential properties. But how can you tell the difference between a “dream home” and a “heap of junk”? Buying a home is a big decision that should be made rationally. For this reason, there are certain things you should look for when visiting a house for the first time. For example: • Are the walls straight? • Is the chimney in good condition? • Does the foundation show signs of cracks or weakness? • Are there large trees planted too closely to the house?

• Do the exterior doors shut properly? • Are there any drafts around them once they are shut? • Are there any cracks in the walls close to door frames, window frames or in the corner of ceilings? • Is the ceiling level? • Do all the inside doors open and shut properly? • Do the windows open and shut properly? • Is the floor solid? If ceramic tiles have been used, are they cracked? • Has any mold or mildew built up around the windows or in the bathroom?

• If the house has a fireplace, are there any signs of smoke over the hearth? Is the damper air proof? • Are there any odours in the basement? (A perfumed scent might be due to the owner trying to mask humidity or animal urine odours.) • Is the cement floor in good condition? Finally, visually inspect all the drains, pipes and kitchen and bathroom fixtures to make sure they are in good condition. Making a checklist of the above questions and bringing it with you when visiting new homes can be a great help.

of a professional standard explained Mullally. Ilona Monahan is a member of the 4A executive committee and has been a member since 2010. She enjoys painting in watercolour mostly horses, flowers and dogs; she is looking forward to the tour and encourages everyone to come out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a lovely time of year and people are out and about

in the community and this gives them nice stops on the way,â&#x20AC;? said Monahan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope to sell a few paintings too!

Parenting together can be difficult to negotiate EMC Lifestyle - Do you and your spouse argue about how to discipline and raise your children? Do you find that this is a source of tension in your relationship? Parenting together, as a team, can be difficult to negotiate, especially if the two of you were raised with different parenting styles. It is also more difficult if there are other tensions in your relationship. To help parent better together as a team The North Lanark Community Health Centre is offering a free three week course for couples who are parents of young children. It will help you find ways to agree on parenting styles,

look at the importance of the parent-child connection and learn to support each other to work as a team. It is an information and discussion group. Parents will not be asked to share about themselves or their children but may wish do so if it would be helpful to them. In this course we will discuss the following and much more.

The trees in your backyard – topic of Horticultural presentation EMC Lifestyle - “I frequently tramped eight or ten miles through the deepest snow to keep an appointment with a beechtree, or a yellow birch, or an old acquaintance among the pines.” ~Henry David Thoreau. The enjoyment of sitting under a tree, shaded from the sun and listening to the rustling leaves or the whisper of the wind through the pines is something we can all relate to. In today’s world of blistering heat, drought and the voracious emerald ash borer, it is difficult to know how to care for your trees or which trees to select to plant. Proper tree care is an investment that can lead to substantial returns - wellcared-for trees are attractive and can add considerable value to your property while poorly maintained trees can be a significant liability. Join the Perth & District Horticultural Society in welcoming Crispin Wood, the Lead Arborist for the Federal Department of Agriculture’s Central Experimental Farm in Ottawa, for a presentation on “Trees in Your Backyard”. With over 10 years experience in the fields of arboriculture and urban forestry, Wood lends his education and expertise to the management and maintenance of the woody plant collections stretching

across a 400 hectare site of mixed urban and rural landscapes. His education includes a degree in Biology from Carleton University and a diploma in Forestry from Algonquin College. He is also a recognized Horticultural Professional with the Ontario Nursery and Landscape Association and a Certified Arborist with the International Society of Arboriculture. In addition to his work at the Department of Agriculture, he is an active volunteer in the community, devoting much of his free time to various environmental causes. Most notably he sits as Vice-Chair for the Ottawa Stewardship Council, and is an active member of the Planning committee of the Ottawa Eco Fair. Despite his diversity of education and experience, however, Wood’s passion continues to reside with trees; a passion he’s more than willing to share.

I have been asked many times why I deliver presentations about my son’s fate. I am a survivor of suicide, changed forever and I am not alone. Survivors offer a unique insight and hope

which can enrich our understanding of suicide to hundreds of people throughout the communities whose lives are touched by this tragedy. This is my goal, opening the dialogue on mental illness, substance abuse and suicide. Encouraging others to come forward and speaking up may open up new

means of preventing it and understanding its impact.

EMC News - “Hope is faith holding out its hand in the dark” was a message delivered by one of the several guest speakers at the second annual Brett Pearson Run for Your Life on Sept. 1. The event was sponsored by the Carleton Place Drug Strategy Committee. Similar to last year, the warm day was blessed with sunny skies as participants from Carleton Place, Smiths Falls, Almonte, Perth, Carp, Ottawa, Gatineau, Kanata, Nepean, Kemptville, Stittsville and Mississauga made their way to the Carleton Place High School to walk or run the 2.5 km and 5 km courses. For some, survivors affected by suicide, addiction and mental illness it was a chance to share their experiences with others. The powerful messages communicated by Mayor Wendy Leblanc, CBC Ottawa Morning host Robyn Bresnahan, OPP Const. Dave Bird, Smiths Falls Const. Dave Murphy and Marla Israel, Director General, Centre for Health Promotion, Public Health Agency of Canada helped in breaking the silence. With each word spoken, the taboo surrounding these topics began to fade, easing the pain of those suffering or left behind. The Parade of Life which led participants from the high school to the starting line at the Trans-Canada trail was led by Brett’s younger brother, Sgt. Dennis Pearson of the 2870 Royal Canadian Dragoons Army Cadets Corps and his leadership encouraged other youth to speak out. The high school and trailhead sites were marked with colours representative of the cause. Purple and yellow balloon arches welcomed the participants at the sites and a ‘Fountain of Hope’ held floating tea lights that were lit by the participants and then placed on the floating purple letters that spelled the word ‘HOPE’. Messages were inscribed on the tea lights by the participants bringing some consolation for the reason why they were there on Sept. 1. The event raised $3,270. The net proceeds of this year will be returned into

Scotland and the 20 year twinning relationship involving Carleton Place and its sister community of Comrie, in the Scottish Highlands, were the focus of a special event in the Carleton Place Town Hall Auditorium Saturday. The sixth annual Heritage Ball, sponsored by the Carleton Place Sister City Committee, celebrated the 20th anniversary under the theme ‘A Highland Fling’. A full house was on hand for the formal dinner-dance which raises funds for the Sister Cities Student Exchange program. Among the main participants were five natives of Scotland. They are the Lees family from Comrie, George Lees and his wife Marlyn (left) and their daughter Amanda (foreground). Mr. Lees is the long-time chair of the Comrie Twinning Committee. The Honorary Co-Hosts for the special occasion were Duncan and Fiona McNaughton (right). The McNaughton’s are long-time residents of the Carleton Place area.

Seniors’ Forum is designed to give Carleton Place residents more participation in community affairs

New vision “This is part of a new vision for the aging,” Mills said during a recent meeting with the EMC which outlined details of the process which will begin with the forum later this month. Carleton Place Mayor Wendy LeBlanc said “a large number of players (participants)” will come together for the seniors’ forum. A number of organizations are already listed as community partners in the venture. They are the town itself, Community Home Support Lanark County (which provides services for seniors and adults with physical disabilities), Community and Primary Health Care, the Sunset Club of Carleton Place (a local seniors’ organization) and the Alzheimer Society of Lanark County. “The philosophy is to include as many (people and organizations) as possible,” Mills stresses.

LeBlanc says council is thrilled to be working with MCSC but admits they first had to get past the erroneous impression the organization was directly connected to the Town of Mississippi Mills. “We didn’t realize all of the things you (MCSC) could offer due to the fact we thought you were aligned with Mississippi Mills,” the mayor told Mills during the recent meeting. MCSC and its partners are working with various groups, organizations and entities who are involved with seniors in the community on a daily basis, in hopes of attracting as many participants as possible on Oct. 16. Mills explains information releases were sent to all of the local churches who have also been invited to participate by donating desserts for the luncheon planned as part of the upcoming forum. “The churches will be donating pies. “Food is a good unifying factor which is why it is important to come together over lunch,” Mills adds. With the churches on board it is hoped as many parishioners as possible will attend the session. During the event participants will be seated at tables and LeBlanc says each table “will have an identifiable (local) facilitator” who will help move the discussion along. Following discussion at each individual table, a general dialogue involving all of the participants will be held to formalize the process. As mentioned Coxon the CEO of MCSC, will facilitate that portion of the venture. Mills also referred to the second annual Seniors’ Expo held recently at the Civitan Club Hall in Almonte. He said participants were asked three specific questions. One was, “Tell us about a time you were most proud of your

community.” The second was, “Name the most important things, places and people in the community for you.” The third query was, “What do you wish most for your community?” Mills says the answers to those questions, which those in attendance were asked to write out on paper, can be used to assist in making Mississippi Mills or any other community a better place in which to live. He referred to Margaret Wheatley, an American writer and management consultant who studies organizational behavior. The very quotable Wheatley once said, “Very great change starts from very small conversations held among people who care.” Mills notes what he calls “the (impressive) volunteer capacity of seniors today.” Engage seniors Carleton Place Councillor Jerry Flynn, a firm believer in the importance of engaging seniors in their own community, says “we are looking for the knowledge and expertise with that (seniors) community.” He refers to the large number of professional people who are

Bridge and Town Line Road. To sum up the importance of the forum Mills said “it will be a day for broader discussion.” He says the venture will aim “to pinpoint areas of interest and concern” and “build on the assets that already exist in the community.” LeBlanc calls the process “a positive collaboration” involving community representatives and citizens. “We are starting a conversation about the needs in the community and people’s interests. “We want to hear (from citizens) about what we have and what we need.” Flynn summed it up when he offered, “We are looking for seniors’ vision of Carleton Place.” For more information about the upcoming Seniors’ Forum, to register for the event or to arrange transportation people are asked to contact Jessica Smith, the town’s community programmer.

retired and living in Carleton Place. “There are so many (retired) professionals who still have so much to share. “Seniors are the biggest growth area in our society,” the councillor noted. Mills says an important part of the process will be to create “an assets map for Carleton Place.” He feels councils “don’t necessarily have all the answers” which is why his organization is involved in the process. “Council is not leading this,” LeBlanc stressed, saying the town is acting as a facilitator rather than playing the lead role. “We will be the greeters that day,” she says with a smile. On Sept. 25 LeBlanc, on behalf of council, proclaimed Oct. 1 ‘International Day of Older Persons and National Seniors Day’ in Carleton Place. The mayor also mentioned that the Oct. 16 activity will be the first community event staged in the recently acquired Carambeck property which is located at 351 Bridge St., just north of the intersection of

This past spring MCSC officials made a presentation to Carleton Place council which helped open the door to the program for seniors which the town is now embarking on. Jeff Mills, the son of founding member Stanley Mills, is the coordinator of community development for the organization. He says he is “proud of Carleton Place (council)” for having the vision to organize the seniors’ forum with a view to making life better for the oldest residents of the community.

R0011583926

EMC Events - Carleton Place values its oldest residents and that fact will be underlined during a special Seniors’ Forum planned for Tuesday, Oct. 16. Organized by the Town of Carleton Place, the venture is the first step in a new initiative aimed at enhancing the quality of life for local seniors. The free event, which includes a lunch provided by the town, will be held at Carambeck Community Centre (the former Carambeck Public School) at 351 Bridge Street from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Oct. 16. Free transportation will be available for anyone requiring assistance reaching the venue! Carleton Place council is working with Mills Community Support Corporation (MCSC), an agency based in the Almonte Ward of neighbouring Mississippi Mills, to organize the venture. Michael Coxon, chief executive officer for MCSC will act as facilitator for the forum. The aim is to open a dialogue with seniors, their families, caregivers and friends in an effort to determine what is needed to make older people’s lives better. The number of people over the age of 65 is increasing at a rapid rate in Canada and the special forum in Carleton Place is a reflection of that fact. The name Mills Community Support Corporation (MCSC) comes from two sources. It is named in honour of Stanley Mills, a founding member and chair of the organization which was previously called Almonte Community Development Corporation (ACDC) as well as for the community where it is based (Mississippi Mills). MCSC is a multi-service organization which assists more than 1,000 people across Lanark County with specialized supportive housing services, non-profit housing services and home support services. The group’s website explains, “These services assist

EMC Events - Pets of all sizes and shapes and breeds could be seen Saturday during the Pet Lovers’ Expo in Merrickville. Hosted for the Lanark Animal Welfare Society the event featured an array of special features for families and their pets. A pet fashion show, first aid demonstration and a variety of vendors could be seen throughout the day. The day was a fundraiser for LAWS in which organizers were hoping to raise $5,000. Vendors included Parrot Rescue, Little Rays Reptiles and pet shows featuring best dressed pets and best tricks.

Perth responds to LAWS emergency to raise money to meet this emergency. A group of people met at the Best Western Plus Perth Parkside Inn & Spa in early September to hear details about the emergency and to share ideas about finding a solution. Judy Meyers, pastpresident of LAWS and a current member of the Board explained that a number of circumstances merged to cause the present situation. Financial donations have declined due to the economic climate as have bequests which represent a significant proportion of LAWS income. The past year saw an extraordinary increase in the number of animals brought to LAWS thus placing severe strain on all of LAWS resources. Complicating matters is the fact that the shelter

Curl for Kids Nov. 30 EMC News - The Smiths Falls Curling Club will host a Curl for Kids event for Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Lanark County, Nov. 30. Curling will begin at 6 p.m. and the famous Curl for Kids chili will be on the menu. The cost for a team is $120 for four people for two games, and registration should be completed and

facility, located 2 kms west of Smiths Falls, is an old one requiring increasingly high maintenance costs. In January 2011, three pounds in surrounding municipalities of Perth closed and LAWS entered into a contract with them to receive animals from these communities. The number of animals far exceeded the numbers that were anticipated thus making it necessary for LAWS to withdraw from this arrangement. At present LAWS is not able to accept any dogs or cats. LAWS is one of only two “No Kill” shelters in Ontario and survives solely on private donations. It receives no funding from any level of government. Being a “no kill” shelter is an expensive undertaking but one that is well worth the effort and ex-

pense. Mohatma Ghandi said “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way it animals are treated.” The work of LAWS, its staff and volunteers and those who support it through their financial donations, help our community to be a positive demonstration of Ghandi’s words. “LAWS saves lives; let us save LAWS”. This is the mantra of the LAWS fundraising chapter in Perth. There are many ways to get on board. One way is to come to the “Rally for LAWS” to take place at the Perth Farmers Market on Saturday, Oct. 6 beginning at 10 a.m. Donations will be accepted and tax receipts issued. Please consider your support of several other upcoming events in Perth taking place in Oc-

tober with proceeds going to LAWS “Musicians for Mutts” at Perth Studio Theatre, Oct. 5, will feature Kelly Prescott, The Claytones, Kelly Sloan, fabulous fiddlers and a silent auction. Tickets are available at Coutts Coffee Company, The Factory Grind/Bakers Cafe or by calling 256-7980. On Oct. 13, Pet Fest will fill Mill Street in Carleton Place with entertainers, creatures, vendors, demos and more. Go to the LAWS website, listed below, for more details. There will be a dance with a live band and silent auction on Oct. 26 at the Farrell Hall in Perth. For tickets, call Kellie at 613-250-9183. Silent auction items will be greatly appreciated – for pick-up call Marlene at 613-466-0283. For a more formal event, consider the “Black Tie –

White Paws” Dinner and silent auction for L.A.W.S on Oct. 13 at Slackoni’s Restaurant in Carleton Place. For tickets go to www.slackonis. com. For information about these and other events or to donate online go to www.lanarkanimals.com. Often an emergency brings out the very best in a community. We see it happening already in the way people want to help to save LAWS. More must be done and as you can see from the many varied events there is something for everyone.

EMC News - Since the Lanark Animal Welfare Society announced that it is facing an emergency financial situation and may have to close its doors, many groups and individuals in the County have stepped forward to help. A group of concerned citizens in Perth has also responded and in collaboration with LAWS has formed a LAWS Fundraising Committee – the Perth Chapter. Driven by a love of animals and a respect for the commitment of those at LAWS who have kept this “No Kill” shelter operating for more than 30 years, a small group of people decided that action was needed now to help save LAWS. The focus of the Perth fundraising Chapter will be to raise awareness of the crisis LAWS is facing and

Tragic performance at Carleton Place Town Hall — Director is killed EMC Entertainment - Editor’s note: The following essay was written by Kathleen Everett, a member of the Mississippi Mudds publicity team. During a particularly bad performance of the murder mystery Murder Me Always the audience was shocked when life imitated art. Not that one could call that production artful in any way, shape or form. According to authorities the dinner theatre had just

begun and the salads were on the tables when a shot reverberated through the hall — the audience believed it was part of the show until the body of the director was found backstage. Thus, the performance came to a crashing halt and all mayhem let loose. Detective Joe Mamet who happened to be at the evening’s performance quickly took control of the situation. He said that many of the folks wanted to leave, some disgruntled

by the terrible over acting onstage, and others for fear that the killer was still at large in the hall and may strike again. Nevertheless, everyone was detained for questioning. Mamet saw no reason to waste the wonderful repast prepared by the good folks at Ballygiblin’s Restaurant and Pub, and dinner was served to the delight of the crowd. For those who required a bit more fortification, the cash bar was also made

available (within reason). No one wanted to deal with a drunk on top of a murderer. The evening was full of discussion around the dreadful performance and the dramatic death, everyone speculating on whodunnit, and why they still let hopelessly forgetful Henry take part in such theatrical productions. One patron summed it all up nicely when she said, “Bad theatre shouldn’t be a death sentence!” In a generally peaceful

town like Carleton Place such drama-filled evenings are blessedly rare, but if you’ve been hankering for just such a night out, then run, don’t walk down to the Chamber Offices at 132 Coleman St. and purchase a ticket for the Mississippi Mudds upcoming murder mystery Murder Me Always by Lee Mueller. The production is set to take the stage at, you guessed it, the Carleton Place Town Hall on Friday, Nov. 2 and Saturday, Nov. 3. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

with hors d’oeuvres being served until the show starts at 7 p.m. Tickets for the dinner, catered by Ballygiblin’s, and the show, superbly over acted by the Mudds’ Players, are only $45 and include gratuities and taxes. Though the folks at the Chamber Offices have said they’d love your cash, they will also sell to those using debit or credit cards. So no excuses! For more information please call 613257-1976 or visit www. mississippimudds.ca.

Lanark County Food Bank sees new applicants every month Food Banks (OAFB) reported that about 395,000 people were using food banks in Ontario. Your local Food Bank relies completely on donations from the local community and the OAFB to operate. We do not receive any assistance from the Province of Ontario or any other level of government. In Lanark County we are fortunate to have the support of the local community and several businesses to make our operation a success. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have helped us over the past year. Special thanks also go out to all the volunteers who give their time every week to ensure that we are able to continue offering this service. The fall season is always a busy time at the Food Bank as we have several food and fund raising initiatives to help us through the winter months. The first

involves the annual Halloween parade that takes place in Carleton Place on Saturday, Oct. 27. The Lanark County Food Bank will be participating in this parade and the public will have the opportunity to make either food or monetary donations. In addition, the fourth annual Build a Mountain Food Drive will be held in mid-November and the public will be able to help out with a donation at any of the major grocery stores in our area. This food drive has been tremendously successful in past years and we have generally collected between 2,000 and 3,000 lbs. of food. The final fall event will be our

participation in the Santa Clause Parade which takes place in Carleton Place on Nov. 24. We look forward to seeing you there. Did you know that the Lanark County Food Bank has been operating in your community for 25 years? Next year will mark our 25th anniversary and we are planning a special event to commemorate this milestone. More details will be forthcoming in the months ahead.

EMC Lifestyle - In late August the Ontario Common Front published a report entitled “Falling Behind”. This report contained some alarming statistics about Ontario’s track record in dealing with poverty and funding of social programs and services. For example, while poverty rates fell in five provinces, Ontario had the second highest increase in poverty compared to the remaining provinces. Another area of concern was the fact that 1 in 7 or almost 400,000 children are living in poverty in Ontario. At the Lanark County Food Bank we are well aware of the impact poverty has on many families in the area. The Food Bank helps close to 550 people monthly and the number is constantly increasing. On average, there are approximately 12 new applicants every month. In 2011, the Ontario Association of

Local musicians feature fundraising events for LAWS By ROBYNNE EAGAN

EMC Events - Local musicians are raising their voices for the creatures who can’t, in an attempt to save the Lanark Animal Welfare Society no-kill animal shelter that has served Lanark County for 30 years. Local singer Kelly Prescott has long been an advocate for the creatures who can’t speak for themselves and was one of the first to come forward. Her enthusiasm for LAWS is contagious, her band “The Claytones” along with Kelly Sloan; fiddlers Matt Pepin, Ian Clark, and John Dahms; and emcee Bridal Jamieson were on board for a not-to-be missed event. “Musicians for Mutts” is set to take place Perth Theatre, Oct. 5. Along with great music, Prescott has orchestrated a silent auction with many great items up for grabs. The support of the musical community doesn’t stop there. Several bands are on-deck for a yet to be announced evening of sound, including “Running Naked,” “Jack Spinks,” and “Balsam Blue,” acoustic guitarists and singers Kathleen Stroud, Kurtis Armstrong, Sara Mitchell; and the poet-songwriters of “Vine Rhymes,” supported by sound technician, Tim Greencorn. “For an organization running

on private donations, it’s the least we could do,” says Dave Scribailo of Running Naked. “Everything Zen” Band will be at Farrell Hall on Friday, Oct. 26, 8 p.m.- 2 a.m., Nov. 9, Ambush will be at the Smiths Falls Civitan Club for a “Red Solo Cup Event” from 8 p.m. - 1 a.m., and Janis Joplin will be strutting her stuff for LAWS once again in Shelly Montreuil’s popular tribute show at a date soon to be announced. With support such as this, Melissa Rusk, president of the LAWS board of directors, is hopeful that LAWS can survive this period of transition that has left the shelter overcrowded and struggling financially. “LAWS is a good cause,” says Scribailo of Running Naked. “Like they say, ‘it’s not so much that we rescue animals, but that they rescue us’.” Musicians for Mutts, Perth Studio Theatre, Friday, Oct. 5, 8 p.m. (Tickets available for $20 at Baker Bob’s, Mississippi Mills Musicworks, Read’s Book Shop, Ballygiblin’s, Pakenham General Store, The Vineyard Winery, Balderson Fine Foods, Factory Grind and Coutts & Company Coffeehouse.)

This Chop Suey is not a Chinese dish EMC Lifestyle - On one of our visits to Jeff’s parents, his mother and I went shopping in the local supermarket. In the bakery section, we came across a loaf of bread called a Chop Suey Loaf. We could see that it contained fruit, not Chinese vegetables, and decided to give it a try. With a soft texture and bits of candied fruit scattered through each slice, it was delicious, plain or toasted. After some experimenting when I got home, I came up with a similar loaf that I could make in my bread machine. To make this, use the diced candied fruit that you use in Christmas baking. It’s available year round from many bulk food stores and in the supermarkets around Christmas.

It’s important to rinse the candied fruit with water to remove excess sugar. This gives the bread a lighter texture. The recipe calls for skim milk powder and water. In some recipes, you can substitute milk for the dry milk powder, but not in this one. Milk makes the loaf heavy and dense, while the skim milk powder gives a much lighter texture. Chop Suey Loaf 3/4 cup water 1/4 skim milk powder 1 egg 1 tsp. salt 1 tbsp. white sugar 2 tbsp. butter or margarine, at room temperature 2 1/3 cups flour 1 cup candied fruit 1/4 cup raisins 1 1/4 tsp. bread machine yeast

Food ‘n Stuff PAT TREW

Before you start, measure the candied fruit into a sieve, and rinse it under cold water to remove excess sugar or syrup. Spread the fruit on a double thickness of paper towel, and blot up as much of the water as you can. Set aside. If your machine has an Extras option which adds fruit or nuts automatically, measure the raisins into the section for Extras. If it doesn’t, you will have to add the raisins later. Place the water, milk

powder, egg, salt, sugar and butter in the bread machine pan in the order given. After measuring the flour, use about 2 tablespoons of it, and lightly dust the candied fruit with it.

Place the remaining flour in the bread pan, then add the floured fruit. Leave a small area free of fruit, and measure the yeast into that spot. (You don’t want the yeast sticking to the fruit and not mixing into the batter.) Set the bread machine for the Sweet Cycle, or on some machines the Fruit and Nut Cycle. If it has the automatic Extras feature, press the Extras button. Don’t use the Delay Cycle with this loaf.

This recipe makes a 1 1/2 lb. loaf. If your bread machine has a setting for different loaf sizes, press the one for this size. Start the machine. If your machine doesn’t have the automatic Extras feature, it will beep when it is time to add extras. Add the raisins, and let the machine continue until the bread is done. Remove the loaf from the pan, and let it cool for an hour before slicing.

Almonte, St. John pummeled opponents in high school football action last week By JEFF MAGUIRE

Submitted photo

Close to $600 and a truckload of supplies was raised for LAWS, as a result of a retirement party/fundraiser for Madelyn Johnson. After 40 years teaching, her wish was to have a retirement party, and raise funds and supplies for the Lanark Animal Welfare Society. The event took place Sept. 23 at the North Elmsley Public School gymnasium. Johnson was even mentioned during a recent Rick Mercer report on CBC television.

EMC Sports - Almonte and District High School Senior Thunderbolts ran rough shod over Notre Dame Catholic High School Warriors at Beckwith Park field Friday, improving their perfect record to 3-0 in the Lanark County Senior High School Football League. On the artificial turf in Beckwith T-Bolts rang up eight touchdowns on their way to a 61-7 cakewalk. Dependable backfielder Wes Mann romped for 127 yards and two touchdowns to raise his season total to seven majors in just three outings. Jake Kargus raced for an additional 76 yards and one TD while Almonte quarterback Brett Mosley completed seven of eight passes, two of which went the distance. The aerial attack ate up a huge 180 yards. The other Thunderbolt majors were scored by Ben and Zach Kealey along with Andy Bassett and Ryan McCurdy.

Almonte head coach Chris Spratt says the onesided triumph occurred because his team “was firing on all cylinders. “It was a very big win for us,” he says. Smiths Falls and District Collegiate Institute RedHawks remain in second place in the Lanark senior loop despite absorbing their first loss, a 51-0 home field embarrassment at the hands of St. John Catholic High School Spartans. St. John remains a point behind in the six-team league. Carleton Place High School (CPHS) Golden Bears won their first game of the campaign Friday, edging visiting Perth and District Collegiate Institute (PDCI) Blue Devils 2621. Devils remain the only winless team in the senior league. In the second game of a senior-junior doubleheader at CPHS field, the Junior Bears Cubs improved to 2-0 with a 49-13 romp over PDCI. Carleton Place swept the afternoon twin-bill.

Other games in the Lanark-Renfrew Junior High School Football League saw Smiths Falls stay tied with CPHS after a 48-7 decision over visiting Almonte who remain winless. Meanwhile Renfrew Collegiate Institute (RCI) Raiders blanked Notre Dame Juniors 35-0 at Beckwith field to complete a tough afternoon for the Warriors who were also swept. The other game saw St. John knock off defending champion Arnprior District High School Redmen 16-6. Week 3 action in the Renfrew County Senior Football League saw twotime defending league and provincial Tier 2 champion Arnprior roll over Mackenzie High School Mustangs of Deep River 41-21 to stay perfect at 3-0. In the other league game RCI had an easy time against Fellowes High School of Pembroke. Raiders won 42-12 to improve to 2-1. Falcons are winless in three tries this season.

2013 Ford Escape takes on new platform EMC Lifestyle – The vehicles I road-test for these reviews (yes it’s a tough job, but I’m willing to make sacrifices) come from two main sources: press fleets owned by the Canadian head offices of the manufacturers and local dealerships. I prefer to use dealership units whenever possible because they more closely represent the trim and equipment level that you or I shop for, whereas press fleets are made up of fully loaded higher-end models. If you are interested in learning more about any of these vehicles, check out the manufacturers’ websites or better yet, call your local dealership and speak to one of their knowledgeable staff. It’s the ultimate in interactive information gathering. The Ford Escape I enjoyed for this review came from the friendly folks at Carleton Ford in Carleton Place. Whenever an auto maker decides to completely revamp a longstanding popular model, they take a risk. The Escape traces its roots back to 2000 when it was first introduced as a 2001 model year SUV. Ford resisted the trend to badge smaller SUV’s with a ‘Crossover’ label and marketed the Escape as a smaller, more efficient alternative to their Explorer. For 2013 the Escape takes on an entirely

new platform, shape, and power-train to bring it in line with Ford’s push to offer extremely fuel efficient vehicles without sacrificing power or performance. Early sales data points to Ford having made the right decision. The Escape starts the price run at $20,504 and tracks up to $45,454 for a fully loaded model. My Titanium trim level 4WD came in at $42,380 (all prices before destination fees, dealer prep, license, taxes, or current incentives). This Escape is powered by Ford’s EcoBoost 2.0 L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine putting out a healthy 240 hp. The Escape is also offered with a 2.5 L non-turbo 4-cylinder or a 1.6 L turbo-charged engine. No matter which engine you choose, power is transmitted to the wheels via a 6-speed automatic transmission. My tester came with everything you’d expect from the ‘almost top rung’ on the trim level ladder and then a few surprises, such as heated power leather seats, high-intensity discharge headlamps with auto-levelling, remote start, telescoping steering column, power sun/ moon roof, 10 audio speakers, keypad entry, roof rack, 19” alloy wheels, the Ford My-Touch control system with voice command and the star of the recent TV ads: the hands-free power lift-gate

control, activated by a gentle kick to the rear bumper. The Escape’s interior is decidedly car like in terms of comfort and view and this new platform has taken all the harshness that smaller SUV rides are known for. The 2.0 L turbo-charged motor keeps the drive enthusiastic without a lot of engine noise or high revs. While some might think a move to a more car-like and fuel efficient SUV means a lighter weight: the 2013 Escape is actually around 200 lbs heavier than the 2012 version. This, and its fourwheel independent suspension makes for a smooth ride over varying road surfaces with predictable handling and a minimum of cross-wind effects when passed by commercial vehicles. New onboard control systems will automatically slow the vehicle when it’s cornering too fast and the 4WD system is also computer controlled requiring no driver input. Fold-flat rear seats allow for a variety of cargo capabilities and help to boost the Es-

cape’s capacity to 68.1 cubic feet behind the first row seats and 34.3 behind the second row. And like its predecessors, the 2013 Escape can tow up to 3,500 lbs (when properly equipped). Keeping an Escape on the road doesn’t have to break the bank. A dealership oil change runs around $50 (no synthetic oil is required on the turbo engines), an air filter costs $22.73, front brake pads are $139.95 and front brake rotors are priced at $74.62 each. Only the tires might provide some sticker shock. My tester was shod with P235/45R19 tires which are available from a small selection of tire makers with prices running from $295-$595 each. The SEL trim level 4WD might be a better deal for someone who’s not looking for all the bells and whistles. That version is priced at $36,388 and its P235/50R18 tires are available from a much larger number of makers in the $200-$350 per unit price range. Of course, the big numbers that are sure to bring

big smiles to Escape owners are its fuel economy ratings. NRCan gives the 2.0 L 4WD version a rating of 9.8L/100 km city and 6.9 L/200 km highway. That translates into 28.8 mpg city and 40.9 mpg highway. For comparison the U.S. EPA rates the Escape at 25.2 mpg city and 33.6 mpg highway (converted to imperial gallons). Using the NRCan figures the Escape’s 57 L fuel tank should provide an operating range of over 600 km in

a 50/50 mix of city/highway driving and cost about $75 to fill at $1.40 per litre (the turbo engines take premium fuel). The market place for compact SUV’s is a pretty busy and crowded affair, but Ford puts the Escape at the head of its class with technology to boost economy, improve driver safety, and beat Canadian winters.

British lines never go out of style ... EMC Lifestyle - An old friend, Michael Giroux (not in age but in years known) brought over his project car recently as he knew we shared an interest in all things British (wheels that is). His pride and joy, a 1962 Austin Healy 3000 MkII BT7 was enjoying its inaugural summer tour after a 14-year rebuild. The MkII’s were originally built from 19611962 by the British Motor Corp as a flagship model and could be had for the princely sum (back then) of around $3,700. Like many British sports cars of that era, they were advanced for their times with an extensive use of aluminum body panels, electric transmission overdrives, and even mounting points for optional seatbelts. Mike’s Austin Healey was built as a left-hand drive and shipped from Britain to Montreal in April of ’62. It was trucked to The Sports Car Factory in Hallville in pieces in October of 1998 and was freed to the highways just last month. This was a body on frame vehicle and the body shop custom built a new frame and basically rebuilt the bottom six inches of the vehicle. The body panels were all repaired without filler and sanded to a very fine finish before paint. The interior fabric and trim was replaced with

Car Counselor BRIAN TURNER

new as was every piece of chrome body décor and grille. The engine was disassembled and rebuilt and balanced by a shop in Cobden. Knowing he wanted this vehicle to last, Mike replaced every fastener, bolt, and nut he could with stainless steel, including the exhaust system. That and an electronic ignition system were about the only modifications done by Mike in an effort to keep the car as close to its original new condition as possible. The 3.0 L inline six engine is fed by two SU carburetors and produces an amazing 150 HP. This might not seem peppy, but in a car that only weighs 2465 lbs., it’s enough to force you to keep a tight grip on the steering wheel and move this 2-door along in a spirited manor. One of the only kinks left to sort out is the fine tuning of the twin carbs, but even though these can be adjusted by the hands of an expert to make the Austin purr like a kitten, Mike and other classic and antique vehicle owners are running into a host of fuel

system problems that can’t be resolved with a screwdriver. The biggest cause of damage to these chromed chariots (other than rust and teenagers) is ethanol or ethyl alcohol that’s found in pretty much every gas station in the province. While the high concentration E85 or 85 per cent ethanol fuel is hard to find in Canada, E10 or E15 or low alcohol content gas is pumped pretty much everywhere. If a gasoline brand does have ethanol content, the dispensing pump should be labeled with that information. In vehicles built before the mid ’80s, ethanol can weaken fuel pumps, damage carbs and injectors, and create crystalline deposits that can gum up the works. Verity Conrad, a communications advisor with Shell Canada provided some helpful tips for collector and antique car owners: “Shell does not currently add any Ethanol to V-Power in Canada so if a customer does not want Ethanol blended gasoline in a market where we blend in Ethanol they can use V-Power. Not all mar-

kets in Canada have Ethanol blended gasoline, in Shell’s case we normally post “may contain up to 10% Ethanol” at sites that can receive ethanol blended gasoline. If the site does not have these stickers at the pump then that site does not carry Ethanol blended gasolines. If you operate a vehicle that was manufactured prior to the mid 1980s you should exercise caution if you want to use ethanol blended gasoline. Older vehicles used fuel system components (such as seals and hoses) that were not designed to be compatible with ethanol-blended gasoline. Use of ethanol-blended gasoline in any vintage or classic vehicles is not recommended. Avoid storing ethanol-blended gasoline or conventional gasoline from one season to the next. During spring and fall, the volatility of gasoline is changed on a frequent basis and too much or too little vapour pressure can cause operational problems. Some manufacturers recommend that ethanol-blended gasoline not be used in their marine engines. Prior to using ethanol-blended gasoline, the customer should check their owner’s manual or contact their equipment manufacturer to ensure compatibility. For your boat, Shell continues to provide customers with an al-

EMC Events – Notre Dame Catholic High School (NDCHS) held its annual Terry Fox 5K Run/Walk on Sept. 25. Approximately 50 students participated, along with staff. Close to $2,100 was raised. Fox was just 18 when he was diagnosed with the rare osteogenic sarcoma, a form of bone cancer. As a result, his right leg was amputated six inches above the knee. Inspired by youngsters he met in a children’s cancer ward who were suffering with cancer, Fox began his Marathon of Hope cross-country fundraiser in St. John’s, Newfoundland on April 12, 1980. His goal was to raise $1 for every Canadian. He ran for 143 days and 5,373 kilometres before being forced to stop Sept. 1, 1980 in Thunder Bay, when the cancer was discovered in his lungs. Fox passed away at the age of 22 on June 28, 1981.

EMC News – Students at Caldwell Street Public School honoured the memory of a Canadian hero on Sept. 28 by participating in the Terry Fox National School Run Day. Clockwise from top left: On your mark, get set, go; principal Carole Dufort walks with enthusiastic students; and participating in the event was retired and beloved teacher Donna Ward. Although she was set to retire at the end of June, Ward was forced to leave six weeks premature because of her battle against breast cancer. She underwent a mastectomy on May 24 in Ottawa and is now doing well – and cancer free. The entire student population wore pink on Friday to demonstrate support.

What is breast cancer? Breast cancer starts in the cells of the breast. The breast tissue covers an area larger than just the breast. It extends up to the collarbone and from the armpit across to the breastbone in the centre of the chest. The breasts sit on the chest muscles that cover the ribs. Each breast is made of glands, ducts (thin tubes) and fatty tissue. Lobules are groups of glands that can produce milk. Milk flows from the lobules through a network of ducts to the nipple. The nipple is in the centre of a darker area of skin called the areola. Fatty tissue fills the spaces between the lobules and ducts and protects them. A woman’s breasts may feel different at different times of her menstrual cycle, sometimes becoming lumpy just before her period. Breast tissue also changes with age. Breast tissue in younger women is mostly made of glands and milk ducts, but older women’s breasts are made up mostly of fatty tissue. The breasts also contain lymph vessels and lymph nodes, which are part of the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system helps fight infections. Lymph vessels move lymph fluid to the lymph nodes. Lymph nodes trap bacteria, cancer cells and other harmful substances. There are groups of lymph nodes near the breast under the arm, near the collarbone and in the chest behind the breastbone. Cancer cells may start within the ducts (this is called ductal carcinoma) or in the lobules (lobular carcinoma). Ductal carcinoma is the most common type of breast cancer.

The information in this section is about ductal and lobular carcinomas. Other types of cancer such as inflammatory breast cancer and Paget’s disease, behave differently and may need different treatment. For more information about other types of breast cancer, call our Cancer Information Services 1 888 939-3333 or e-mail info@cis.cancer.ca.

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A mere â&#x20AC;&#x153;bump in the roadâ&#x20AC;? was how one member of the Friends of the Andrewsville Bridge described Lanark County Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision not to contribute the funds needed to repair the damaged bridge and reopen it to vehicular traffic. County councillors voted Sept. 26 to uphold their Public Works Committeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision not to provide 50 per cent of the $50,000 needed to repair the bridge, which has been closed to traffic since May. The remaining share of the funding was to have been provided by the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville, since the bridge connects the two municipalities. The 100 year-old bridge was closed May 4 at the request of Parks Canada when a truck exceeding the posted fivetonne weight limit crossed the bridge, located on the Rideau Canal half way between Merrickville and Burritts Rapids. The adjacent Parks Canada swing bridge at Nicholsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lock was damaged, forcing the closure of both bridges. A group of area residents calling themselves the Friends of the Andrewsville Bridge have since gotten together to lobby government to repair and reopen the bridges. Rather than approving the funds necessary to allow vehicles to use the Andrewsville Bridge, Lanark County Council voted to allow the bridge to be opened to pedestrians and bicycles only, pending a staff report which was to be presented to the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Public Works Committee at its Oct. 3 meeting. About 50 members of the Friends of the Andrewsville Bridge filled every available

seat in the county council chamber during the Sept. 26 vote, and expressed their disappointment at councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not finished,â&#x20AC;? said Ann Hysert, who lives beside the bridge on the south side of the canal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bump in the road.â&#x20AC;? Hysert said her group still has an opportunity to ask Leeds and Grenville counties to fund the whole repair project without Lanark Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contribution. Members also intend to seek corporate and community donations to help with the work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re saying no to anything,â&#x20AC;? said Hysert. Prior to the Sept. 26 vote county councillor John Fenik, Mayor of Perth, urged council colleagues to overturn the Public Works Committeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recommendation. He said Lanark County should put up its share of the repairs in partnership with Leeds and Grenville, â&#x20AC;&#x153;in the spirit that we originally agreed to do this.â&#x20AC;? He said council should reconsider in light of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;citizen engagementâ&#x20AC;? represented by the community group, which is willing to get involved and help raise funds. The Friends of the Andrewsville Bridge are â&#x20AC;&#x153;a group of citizens who view this as an incredibly important asset to their community,â&#x20AC;? said Fenik. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For this council to turn their backs on this group of citizens is incredibly short-sighted,â&#x20AC;? concluded Fenik to prolonged applause from the public gallery. Supporting Fenikâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position, Montague Township Deputy Reeve Pat Dolan said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe the community and the bridge deserve a second chance.â&#x20AC;?

County) on the north side of the canal to Merrickville-Wolford (in Leeds and Grenville) on the south side. Public Works Committee chair Susan Freeman, Deputy Reeve of Tay Valley Township, said she would be voting to uphold the decision not to provide the funding. Freeman said the bridge is an asset to the community which would be better protected by restricting traffic to pedestrians and cyclists than by allowing vehicles to use it and risking “a catastrophic event” by having another heavy vehicle do permanent damage. Ironically, added Freeman, the county is more likely to receive large government grants for the bridge if it is limited to pedestrians than if it is a route for vehicles. Opening the bridge now to pedestrians doesn’t rule out the possibility that it could be upgraded in future to allow vehicular use, she said. Council was advised in June that an emergency inspection

Anyone with information on the above occurrences is asked to call Grenville County OPP Communication Centre at 1-888-310-1122, the Kemptville detachment at 613-258-3441, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222(TIPS) 8477 or submit your tip online atwww.tipsubmit.com.

of the bridge on May 9 had revealed “distress in some of the truss members, which was not there in March, 2012, rendering the structure unsafe for vehicular traffic.” The report also noted that the future of the century-old bridge had been the subject of debate since 2005. About $150,000 worth of repairs were completed between 2007 and 2009 to keep the bridge open to vehicles of five tonnes or less. Fenik requested a recorded vote, in which a majority of council members voted to over rule the Public Works Committee’s decision not to fund the repairs. However, because such votes are weighted based on the population of the local municipalities represented by the county councilors, the vote was lost. Following the vote, Friends of the Andrewsville Bridge member Tom Mesman said, “I think it’s a shame; it’s so short-sighted of them to do this.” Mesman said he was also disappointed at the result of the vote because, “This is

the first time the community has gotten together in such a large group.” Although an earlier report presented to council stated that an average of no more than 200 vehicles a day were using the bridge, Burritts Rapids resident Deborah Symmonds said there has been a significant increase in traffic in her community, which only has

one single-lane heritage swing bridge, similar to the damaged Andrewsville Bridge. Speaking to council at the conclusion of the meeting, Lanark County Warden John Gemmell thanked the members for their input during the debate leading up to what was not an easy decision. “This is not personal, it’s business,” he said.

Business retention and expansion seminar series returns Oct. 18 akulp@perfprint.ca

EMC Business – After the success of the inaugural business retention and expansion (BR+E) series, another round of seminars will kick off this fall to aid local business owners. Spearheaded by the BR+E Alliance, a collective made up of business and service groups designed to help business grow, the 20122013 seminar series kicks off Thursday, Oct. 18 at the North Grenville Municipal Centre as part of Small Business Month. Doors open at 6 p.m. for networking opportunities, followed by two presenters at 7 p.m. in the municipal centre theatre. First up will be John De Sousa, a regional manager with RBC Global Asset Management to provide an economic update in relation to business in Canada. De Sousa will focus on both local and global issues. At 8 p.m., Forbes Symon, North Grenville’s director of planning and development, will take the floor to give the audience an “inside scoop on our ‘Green and Growing’ community and what the plans are for the municipality to work with local business in the future,” noted Teri Devine, North Grenville’s economic development coordinator. Light refreshments will be made available to guests, courtesy of University of Guelph-Kemptville Campus’ Impressions Catering. According to Devine, the success of last year’s seminar series is what prompted the BR+E Alliance to offer it once again. “After our first series, we (BR+E Alliance) got together in May 2012 for a strategic planning session to move forward and deter-

mine the mandate of the Alliance,” she explained. “I’m very happy to hear they were strongly committed to working together, so we’re going to deliver a 2012-2013 seminar series.” This year will feature a slightly different lineup and focus on the theme of marketing, which was the top request in a survey of last year’s series. Four sessions have been scheduled and will be led by individuals in local business. “What’s different this year is that instead of bringing in outside facilitators and experts, we’re having our own small business owners facilitate the sessions to showcase their own expertise, which I think is amazing,” Devine commented. “…It gives business owners different opportunities to hone their presentation skills and become more confident, promote their own business, products and services they provide and for local businesses to get to know them better.” Devine pointed out that all presenters for the upcoming series are providing inkind services, which makes it more cost effective and “sustainable.” “It’s important to try and develop business services through BR+E activities that are sustainable,” she said. This year, the four sessions will alternate between seminars and workshops to provide business owners with hands-on experiences. All will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. at Purvis Hall within the University of GuelphKemptville Campus. After

the launch, the first session is scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 21 and will feature Ellen MacLean, a consultant with Kemptville Campus’ business development department on the topic of ‘Developing a Marketing Plan.’ “She will take business owners through an intense and interactive workshop with case studies where people will have to take homework home with them,” Devine explained, adding that MacLean will be encouraging businesses to set up Twitter accounts prior to the session. “This is so at the event she can go through Twitter with groups right there live.” Next up on Wednesday, Jan. 23 is a seminar with two speakers, Tom Graham of TD Graham + Associates and Kevin Savoy of ActionCOACH Business Coaching who will speak about ‘Smart Marketing on a Small Budget.’ A question and answer period will follow their presentations.

The things I don’t know As I get older, I realize that everything I’ve learned over the three score plus years and counting are but a drop in the bucket. Every day I find myself saying, “I didn’t know that”. It’s what we don’t know that gives rise to fear. The ancients thought that the Gods were displeased when there was a solar eclipse. Thanks to planetary physics, we know better now but we are still afraid of things we don’t understand.

Sure, you can go out to the garden centre and max out the credit card without having a clue, and some do, but if you’ve got the desire and not the budget, you are in luck.

This is the perfect time of the year to harvest seed. Talk to your friends, family and neighbours about what worked in their garden and ask if you can take some seeds. Anyone that gardens will be thrilled about sharing their successes and they will give you cuttings, seed, divisions, tips and stories. Everything is setting seed now.

If

someone gave you a tomato that tasted like a tomato instead of red cardboard, get one and save the seed. Dead easy. Squish the tomato, rinse away the pulp and dry the seeds on some waxed paper. When the seeds are dry, pop them into and envelope and mark the variety and the date on the outside. Next spring start your seedlings. You have the whole long, cold, dark winter to do your research. The internet or your local library has a wealth of information on any aspect of gardening. And it’s free ( except for your internet fees ). Librarians live to provide you with information. I’m married to one and she is always trying to cram more information into my little grey cells. It’s the only way to be. When you stop learning, you’re dead. If you are new to the planet or have grumpy friends and neighbours that are unwilling to share their gardening tips, write to me at the email address below. If I don’t know the answer, I will find it for you. How much fun is this to be learning something new every day? Now if I could just remember why I came into this room.

amazing to think of how it started.” Devine stressed that the formation of the Alliance provides an added value for businesses through education and professional development programs. “Each year we continue it, we hope to add more Alliance members which in turn will add more capacity, get more people involved and it becomes a sustainable piece of the economic development department,” she said.

Avid readers will love North Grenville Book Fair Oct. 12-13 akulp@perfprint.ca

EMC Events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Book lovers will unite at the Ferguson Forest Centre (FFC) Friday, Oct. 12 and Saturday, Oct. 13 for the ninth annual North Grenville Book Fair. Jointly coordinated by the Friends of the North Grenville Public Library (NGPL) and Community Living North Grenville (CLNG), the event offers tens of thousands of used books at bargain prices with all funds being split between the two organizations. The book fair kicks off Oct. 12 from 3 to 7 p.m. and continues Oct. 13 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. All books will be priced at $1 each except childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s books, which will be five for $1. Book Fair co-chair and CLNG representative Bill Patterson, who along with co-chair Jeff Murray from the Friends, Friends chair Pat Babin and CLNGâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s John Brauneisen, make up the organization committee, estimates approximately 30,000 books have been collected. With donations being accepted until Oct. 9, that number is only expected to grow. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the publicity has paid off this year. We have had two drop-off dates where we havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been able to keep up so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had to come back the following weekend to sort books and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never hap-

Patterson added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So it really is, from beginning to end, a true community event.â&#x20AC;? Visitors to this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book fair can expect large sections of popular genres such as romance, non-fiction, fiction, sci-fi, autobiography, sports, travel, mystery and much more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We seem to have gotten more religion and philosophy books this year but romance, fiction and mystery are the most popular,â&#x20AC;? Patterson said, adding that a large number of cookbooks have also been donated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We also have a nice collection of antique books this year,â&#x20AC;? added Murray, who said the condition of books donated has also improved. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The books seem to be in better condition and we have a lot of hardcover books from a closed bookstore.â&#x20AC;? With 30,000 books to choose from, volunteers will regularly be putting out fresh stock during the fair. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Books will be put out throughout the sale so on Saturday there will be a whole selection of books that werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t shown on Friday,â&#x20AC;? Murray said.

The organizing committee for the North Grenville Book Fair, above, welcomes book lovers to the annual event, set for Friday, Oct. 12 and Saturday, Oct. 13 at the Ferguson Forest Centre. This will be the ninth year for the fair, which raises funds for Friends of the North Grenville Public Library (NGPL) and Community Living North Grenville (CLNG). From left: CLNG representative and co-chair Bill Patterson, Friends representative and co-chair Jeff Murray, CLNG representative John Brauneisen and Friends chair Pat Babin. Babin indicated a strong contingent of volunteers have also stepped forward to help sort and give their time during the five drop-off dates organizers held throughout the spring, summer and fall. Nineteen volunteers are confirmed for the fair, six of those being St. Michael Catholic High School students looking to earn community service hours. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re okay right now for volunteers, but we will defi-

nitely be looking for some more next year,â&#x20AC;? Patterson stated. Those same volunteers will be on hand to help shoppers searching for a particular book. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some people do come in looking for specific books and our volunteers are pretty good at helping them out and will keep an eye open for certain books,â&#x20AC;? said Patterson. As book lovers themselves, the organizers are anxiously looking forward to the start

date of the fair, which typically sees long lineups wind around the FFC of people waiting for the event to start. Those attending are asked to park in the North Grenville Municipal Centre parking lot, as the FFC area gets crowded quickly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love seeing parents giving their kids a toonie and telling them to go choose a book,â&#x20AC;? Babin remarked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year I saw some kids sitting under a table reading,

out of the way of the stampede,â&#x20AC;? continued Patterson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interesting and nice to see that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re involved in reading.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sale day is fun day,â&#x20AC;? added Murray. Once again this year, after filling a few bags with books, visitors can enjoy a hot dog or hamburger as CLNG is hosting a fundraising barbecue in conjunction with the fair. For $5, individuals can purchase a hot dog, drink and chips or hamburger, drink and chips. All proceeds will go back to support CLNG. Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event saw approximately 800 pass through the fair and raised just over $9,000. CLNGâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s portion went to enhance their programs and services, while the Friends dedicate their half of the funds to childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s programming at the library, including their annual Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Holiday Concert held each December after Christmas. Following a brief break, organizers will be back at it again in May to start planning the 10th annual North Grenville Book Fair. They will also be seeking a storage spot over the winter for leftover books. A large number of the books will be transported to Nigeria, but there will be some remaining. Anyone wishing to provide a storage space is asked to call Pat Babin at 613-258-7563. R0011654593/1004

Municipality celebrates opening of dock in Anniversary Park the head of the Turtle Trail, which links up to the trail to Old Town Kemptville. “Originally, it was also to provide a location for larger boats to dock and then proceed to downtown Kemptville,” notes a background report on Anniversary Park. “This was changed after consultation with Parks Canada and their desire to minimize boat traffic along the South Branch of the Rideau River and potential ecological issues with stink pot turtles around the dock location.” The special projects committee first hired a landscape architect to create a concept plan, which was completed in 2009 and included a parking area, shelters and picnic tables, as well as washroom facilities, volleyball and sand pit, boat docks, and a children’s play area and structure. They scaled back the plan in 2010 to remove the volleyball and sand pit, children’s area and the boat docks. The final plan for the project came together thanks to a series of partners who joined with the municipality, including the FFC (agreed to the location and will maintain the park once it’s established) and Parks Canada who provided permission and permits. Funding grants and programs also helped moved work along. The shelter should be completed by the end of the year and the official opening of the park will be in spring 2013.

EMC News – For the past six years, Anniversary Park has simply been a vision of North Grenville’s special projects committee. Last weekend, it became a reality. The municipality held an unofficial ceremony to celebrate the opening of the dock constructed as part of the park on Sept. 29. Anniversary Park is just one of several legacy projects born out of the 150th anniversary of Kemptville back in 2007, including the Ryan’s Well replica of the first well he constructed and the North Grenville Giving Garden within the Ferguson Forest Centre (FFC). The recently installed dock is just one component of the park, which provides a resting area for canoeists and kayakers along the South Branch of the Rideau River. Other components include a picnic shelter area/pavilion (currently under construction), picnic tables and a parking area. As he welcomed visitors to the opening, mayor David Gordon indicated that the creation of Anniversary Park fits in perfectly with North Grenville’s ‘Green and Growing’ theme. “The park is for all residents of North Grenville to come and enjoy, have a picnic with your children or grandchildren, to go fishing off the dock or go canoeing on the South Branch of the Rideau,” he noted. “Also there are many kilometres of walking trail where you can explore nature for the day.” Gordon credited councillor and special projects committee chair Terry Butler for his passion for the legacy projects. “If it wasn’t for his dedication, these projects would not exist today,” he said, adding that roads superintendent Doug Scott and the public works department had spent many hours on the park and North Grenville Home Builders Association should also be thanked for providing manpower for the project. “Robert Noseworthy (president of the association) is always ready to give a helping hand.” Echoing Gordon’s comments was Mark Guy, director of parks, recreation and culture for North Grenville. He praised the special projects committee for their hard work on creating another jewel in the municipality. “I would like to commend those individual members for their hard work and dedication to this project. With the addition of the dock and pavilion it will serve the many canoes and kayakers who make great use of the Rideau River as a recreational activity, as a stopover for a picnic or to visit the Ferguson Forest Centre on their way to Old Town Kemptville,” he remarked. “I want to thank everyone for attending today and encourage all of you to take advantage of Anniversary Park, the pavilion and the dock.” Butler was pleased to see this day come and looked forward to seeing people use the park. It is also his hope that amenities

such as the park will increase tourism in the municipality. “It’s due to the hard work of the committee and the persistence of the committee that got this done,” he acknowledged. “The exciting part of the whole thing is that this is all part of increasing tourism and tapping into that day tripping market. The municipality will be celebrating a partnership with the

Rideau Heritage Route Tourism Association and Parks Canada with a tourism event in May.” About the park Anniversary Park is located within the FFC and is situated on six acres at the east end of Veteran’s Way. The spot was chosen to provide a tranquil resting area for visitors and was strategic in that it is located at

Penny Southam, John Barclay and Paul Rushforth pose outside of John Barclay’s Oxford Mills bungalow before the television show begins filming. Nothing?’ is that two homeowners compete against each other to make upgrades to their homes all in the hope of increasing the home’s value while spending as little as possible. The hosts for the show, now in its second season on the W network, are real estate agent Paul Rushforth and interior decorator Penny Southam, a member

of the Association of Registered Interior Designer of Ontario, (ARIDO). They help point the homeowners in the right direction and then stand back. The idea is for the two competitors in ‘All for Nothing?’ to find a way to finance the work that Paul and Penny have suggested to them. Enlisting the aid of family and friends along with some

fundraising, the homeowners have two weeks to get the job down. “I appraise the value of their home and give them ideas,” said Rushforth. He believes that every home in the competition comes out a winner with an average increase in home equity being eight per cent. In Oxford Mills, home-

EMC News - A bit of friendly competition, family and friends working together and a great prize, make the television show ‘All for Nothing?’ a winner. The ‘All for Nothing?’ production crew arrived in Oxford Mills this week to film their show. Mountain Road Production is behind the series that has showcased the work of 70 contestants over the past two years. The big prize up for grabs is not having to spend the 2.5 per cent in real estate commissions, courtesy of Paul Rushforth, while being able to take advantage of his real estate team in selling the winning home. A $2,700 investment often turns into a $30,000 to $40,000 profit. All of the homes in the competition including the runnersup end up being worth more on the real estate market because of the upgrades. People helping people drives the home improvement show. “We find that in small communities there is more participation,” said the show’s producer Lisa Nault. “There is always friends and family who want to help,” added Mary Beanish, the production coordinator for the show. The premise of ‘All For

owner John Barclay has taken on the challenge of competing with Lynn Conway on Blossom Road. Barclay bought the two bedroom bungalow in Oxford Mills back in 2009. The house was built in 1975. Barclay wants to sell his home and buy another in the area. As the contest begins and the Mountain Road production crew starts to set up their cameras in his house, he still does not know what Paul and Penny are going to suggest. Regardless of what the suggestions will be, he is determined to take them in stride. “I am excited but afraid too,” he said as the camera crew went about setting up. “I had heard about the show and applied.” His goal is to stay in the Oxford Mills community but wants to have a bit more space to live in and more land. “I will be relying on family and friends,” said Barclay. He already has plans to host a fundraiser at the Maplewood Hall. A musical evening has been planned for Oct. 6. The proceeds of the evening will be split between his ‘All for Nothing?’ competition and the hall itself. “We want to

It is always amazing to me.” The secret, she added, is being able to think out of the box. Producer Lisa Nault sees the show as one that brings real people doing real things to lifestyle programming. “We are hoping to film more episodes of ‘All for Nothing?’ in the Kemptville area,” said Nault. “We are searching for homeowners who have outdated homes and who get excited by creative solutions that don’t break the bank and are happy to roll up their sleeves and invest their sweat equity.” Interested homeowners can click on www.allfornothing?.ca for more information about the show, or call 613-237-4447.

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Girls Night program will make its triumphant return to the Kemptville Youth Centre (KYC) this October, and staff could not be more excited for the amazing experience that it presents to

 %   

teenage girls from around North Grenville. Beginning on Wednesday nights in October, Girls Night will run from 6 to 8 p.m. at the youth centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 5 Oxford St. West location just off of Rideau St. in Kemptville. Open only to girls aged 12 to 18 from North Grenville communities, this program aims to get girls participating in selfempowering and pampering activities while discussing issues that are important to them. Girls will participate in activities ranging from manicures to yoga and will be able to discuss issues including relationships with parents, healthy eating and positive self-image with

volunteers and professionals from around the North Grenville communities. With the Girls Night program ending in December, KYC will be switching its focus in the new year as it presents for the first time a Boys Night program. Similarly structured with guest speakers and differing topics of discussion, the program will aim to empower boys through hands-on activities, conversation and positive male role models in the Kemptville community. As with the majority of the programs offered by KYC, both the Girls Night and Boys Night programs are offered free of charge to youth in Kemptville aged 12

to 18 and require no registration to participate. The goal of these and all of our programs is to aide in our mission to engage youth in making positive life choices in a socially accepting environment to reach their full potential as responsible and productive citizens. If you would like additional information on the Girls Night or Boys Night programs, check out our website at www.kemptvilleyc.com, call KYC at 613-258-5212 or email the program coordinator at andrew@kemptvilleyc.com.

Getting what you pay for

T

he latest effort by Conservative MPPs to try and create some kind of common sense approach when it comes to arbitrators coming up with public service wage settlements, is an interesting idea. The notion of an “ability to pay” act makes sense until you realize such a rule would destroy any sense of fairness in a system that is already straining to maintain its integrity. The latest suggestion for arbitration reform may be taking things a bit too far. However it does come along with some very workable ideas as far as helping municipalities and in the end taxpayers, get what they need as far as arbitrated settlements go. While it is true that a municipality’s ability to make good on a bill that another level of government or arbitrator has ordered them to pay is frustrating and often a hardship, the fact that we all want to be able to take advantage of having the best, no matter where we live is important. In all fairness, the value of a paramedic, police officer or firefighter should be as universal as possible. To link the arbitrated cost of a police contract, for example, to the municipality’s ability to pay is opening a door to creating inequities all over the province not to mention have and have-not municipalities. One of the suggestions found in the reform package put forward by our local MPPs is the creation of a government department where all of the whys and wherefores of an arbitrated settlement could be found. Anyone could look at it, criticize it or applaud the many factors that make up an arbitrator’s decision. That kind of legislated reform has a good ring to it. There are many ways to define how rich we are as a community. We could attach an actual dollar value to how healthy a community is, its buildings, school, hospitals and infrastructure. We could also assign a dollar value to how much we value talented and highly trained professionals who are expected to keep our world running in a safe way. If you want a balanced public service you have to be willing to foot the bill and not short change anyone. Lesser mandated wages for public servants could lead to lesser performance. Instead, transparency and accountability may be the way to make everyone happy.

Fall arrives while we’re at the fair

MC Lifestyle On Friday, all the leaves on the farm were still green, pretty much. On Saturday it was a beautiful day and the Farmer decided to take his canoe out to the creek to watertest it. I watched as he drove the ATV out over the pasture, down the tractor lane and into the cornfield, his handmade cedar-strip canoe bouncing along behind him on the trailer. The soft, refracted light of autumn was shining on the trees, and the leaves seemed to be changing colour before my eyes. I was supposed to be spending the morning writing, but who could resist? Fall is my favourite season. I grabbed my camera, pulled on my rubber boots and headed for the creek. I followed the winding path that the animals had made down the side of the pasture, followed the tree-lined tractor lane under a canopy of branches and stopped to take some photos of the cows. Mocha came over for her close-

up. The calves stopped eating and turned to stare at me. I hauled myself over the gate into the cornfield. The Farmer only had about a half-hour lead on me but he was already out of sight around the bend in the creek. There was no sign which way he had gone, north or south. I went back to the water’s edge and found a turtle. He posed nicely for a photograph, blinking at the sun. When I bent to return him to his mucky home, I lost my footing and put one boot deep into the quicksand mud. I sat down on the edge of a big old tractor tire to empty my boot just as the Farmer rounded the bend. He has a knack for showing up just as I’m doing something stupid. I took a few shots of my husband proudly paddling his canoe in the sunshine. It really is a beautiful boat. I managed to climb in without tipping us over and we paddled up the creek. Passing through a murky spot, we scattered a school of mud pout. As

The Accidental Farmwife Diana Fisher the water cleared again we came across a few mounds of branches and noticed a huge beaver sunning himself. He submitted to a photo session before sliding silently into the water. The lack of rain hadn’t completely dried up the creek but it was very shallow. I acted as lookout as we navigated our way through boul-

ders and the bedrock bridge that the deer use for crossing. It really was the perfect day for a paddle. But after about twenty minutes, my crushed legs were pins and needles. We turned around and headed for home. Saturday evening we were invited to the Metcalfe Fair by our friends Lynda Parke and Stan Carruthers. Stan is something of a legend in the horsing community in this area. He was featured in the book “Horse of a Lifetime” and he just received the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee award for his work with 4-H and the Clydesdale Association. We were treated to a behind-thescenes look at the work that goes into preparing the animals for competition, the cows and horses standing stock still for a bath and grooming. As I sat in the lounge for the potential buyers of the 4-H animals, I watched the children working the crowd. We met the little girl who became famous last year for bursting into tears as she showed her

prize lamb, realizing that it was being sent to slaughter. The woman who bought her lamb last year was so touched she gave the animal back to the little girl to take home. I wanted to buy her little black ewe lamb this year, and was prepared to pay $4 a pound for it, which was pretty much the minimum (but the most we high-rollers can afford). The 100-pound lamb was sold to the same woman again this year, for $12 a pound. It was impressive to see the youngsters working so comfortably and confidently with their animals. In some cases,

young women were leading 1200-pound steers into the ring for auction. It was somewhat emotional to watch, seeing how they cared for these animals that would be sold for meat. But alas, that is the farming life. At the end of the evening I realized I hadn’t seen a single young person with a cell phone. They had more important things on their mind. As I looked out my window Sunday morning, I saw orange leaves covering the ground under our first naked tree. Hello fall. I love you. dianafisher1@gmail.com

Celebrate autumn at Hospiceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fall Extravaganza Oct. 20 By ASHLEY KULP akulp@perfprint.ca

EMC Events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The changing leaves is a sure sign fall is here and with that comes Beth Donovan Hospiceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (BDH) annual Fall Extravaganza fundraiser Saturday, Oct. 20. This is the 13th year for the event, which will take place at the North Grenville Municipal Centre. According to BDH executive director Dawn Rodger, the Fall Extravaganza serves as the largest fundraiser for the non-profit organization and they hope to

raise $30,000 this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The funds help to further support and enhance Beth Donovan Hospiceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s operations and programming,â&#x20AC;? she commented. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is our kick-off to the fall season and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s every reason to come out after your turkey dinner weekend to support Hospice,â&#x20AC;? Rodger added. Doors open at 6 p.m. for a cocktail hour where guests can enjoy live jazz music courtesy of local musician Nick Gummeson. Emcee for the evening will be JACK FMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wayne Cavanagh and the fundraiser will

also feature cake, live and silent auctions and a roast beef dinner with all the fixings catered by Kemptvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Knights of Columbus Holy Cross Council 5333. Rodger noted that BDH has been very lucky in securing sponsorship for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fall Extravaganza. After supporting the event last year, B. Baird Water Conditioning will once again serve as presenting sponsor and the Kemptville Scotiabank has jumped on board to help sell tickets and will match ticket sales up to $5,000. â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;ŚThe opportunity to work

with our community partners and local area residents to raise funds and awareness is invaluable in furthering our cause,â&#x20AC;? Rodger noted in a media release. A draw for a handmade quilt from the North Grenville Quilterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Guild will also take place that night and those interested in purchasing tickets can visit the BDH office in the former Kemptville District Hospital emergency department or call 613-258-9611. Tickets are $2 each or three for $5. During the evening, special recognition will also be paid to

the Ontario Trillium Foundation to thank it for its support of BDH from 2011 to 2013. The funding it provided to enhance the hospiceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s human resources capacity allowed them to hire a volunteer coordinator for the organization. While the funds raised through the Fall Extravaganza arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t earmarked for specific BDH programs, Rodger said the money raised will go where there are priorities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working on now is enhancing our bereavement program so we will be earmarking some of the funds

for that,â&#x20AC;? she explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But the rest will go to the enhancement of community support services to help build a strong foundation in the hopes of acquiring planning funds for a day hospice in the future.â&#x20AC;? Tickets for Beth Donovan Hospiceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fall Extravaganza are available for $50 per person and can be purchased at Scotiabank in Kemptville (300 Colonnade Drive). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a fun event,â&#x20AC;? Rodger concluded. More information on BDH, and their support services can be found by visiting www.bethdonovanhospice.ca.

DEAR EDITOR: I was at the council meeting last night (Wednesday, Sept. 26) concerning the Andrewsville Bridge. I do not speak for the delegation that was there, but I was part of that group of interested citizens. What I find most disappointing is the apparent lack of interest in local citizens who take the time to voice their concerns over an issue such as this group has. Where we were able to garner support (Montague Twp), assistance and in some cases reversal of previous decisions (specifically MerrickvilleWolford Twp and United Counties Leeds Grenville),

my own county, where I pay taxes, refused to acknowledge beyond platitudes our presence and voice. Isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it participation that municipal governments lament the continuing decline of? Is it a wonder why staff reports carry more weight than voters. Where it is easy for elected officials to say we followed the best advice we had when reality is that you ignored the citizens you are supposed to represent and the solutions we offered. It was not an elegant solution that we offered. A few years continuation of service for this bridge that we depend upon so that we could come up with more permanent solutions. We said we would take on that re-

R0011639014_0927

Lack of support for bridge upsetting: reader sponsibility working within the structures of government but we were ignored. I personally am not interested in spending tax dollars on an ornamental structure that services no one. It is a working bridge that I used daily. For the same money, if not less than it will take to make a pedestrian walkway, we could have something that local citizens can actually use. I do acknowledge the support of a few councillors but again I am extremely disappointed in this decision and this council. Sincerely, Ross McMurchy Montague Township

Municipality welcomes business retention and tourism intern By ASHLEY KULP akulp@perfprint.ca

EMC News – Angela Pasco is sure to become a familiar face around North Grenville over the next six months. The Kemptville resident recently joined the municipality as its new business retention and tourism intern on Sept. 4. The six-month contract was made possible through the Eastern Ontario Development Program’s (EODP) youth internship program, administered through Grenville Community Futures Development Corporation (GCFDC). “We applied in June and received approval within a month and then we started to recruit,” noted North Grenville economic development coordinator Teri Devine. “… Through that process we got a variety of applicants and were lucky enough to secure Angela.” Pasco, who studied history in New Brunswick and received her diploma in museum studies from Algonquin College in Ottawa, noted it was the tourism aspect that drew her to the job. “It was the tourism end of it that I was so interested in,” she admitted. “I had no economic development experience but it has turned out well so far. I get to do a lot of both and I find myself excited about the

North Grenville economic development coordinator Teri Devine, left, chats with new business retention and tourism intern Angela Pasco last week at the North Grenville Municipal Centre. Pasco began her six-month contract position with the municipality on Sept. 4 and will be working to expand tourism development and cultural planning in North Grenville. economic development side of it now.” Devine said the internship offers Pasco the opportunity to come back to the area in which she grew up and build her skill set. “This job really allows her to get involved with the local network and meet a lot of people, so her

chances of getting a job somewhere else when the internship is finished is higher,” she said. As the business retention and expansion intern, Pasco has several duties, including continuing to further a key priority of North Grenville’s, tourism development, as well

as cultural planning. “She will continue working on that…helping to maintain a database and developing website content that relates to the cultural assets we have,” Devine explained. Pasco will also work with the Old Town Kemptville Business Improvement Area

(BIA) on a downtown market analysis to “assist the BIA with identifying investment attraction opportunities through the analysis of the downtown mix of businesses and address how they (BIA) want to move forward and how they want to address the gaps,” Devine said. A resident survey was also recently completed, where the municipality mailed out questions to more than 1,800 residents in the community and received a response of 13 per cent. “Now we’re going to work on a customer origin survey where we ask that simple question: where are your customers coming from?” Devine stated. Pasco will be helping with that survey, which will be open to businesses in Old Town Kemptville for a period of eight days. “It will be done by mid-October and we will then send that information to OMAFRA (Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs) who will do an analysis.” “…What we’re trying to find out is what is the downtown’s trade area and where these people are coming from so we can support the BIA in their marketing activities,” she continued. Once that analysis is complete, an open public meeting with stakeholders and partners will be invited to look at the data and strategize on the

creation of an investment attraction strategy. “It will be an action plan to attract new investment to the downtown with some solid recommendations to make it happen,” Devine said. Completing a business database for the downtown is another project Pasco is involved in, as is continuing to support the municipality’s business retention and expansion (BR+E) efforts, and helping Devine with the business visit program which seeks to address challenges local businesses have. “It’s still a learning curve and I’m getting into the swing of things, but I’m really enjoying it,” Pasco remarked. “Angela is a smart young woman who has a lot to offer and everything she’s done so far has been great,” added Devine. “It’s amazing what you can get done when you have support for your efforts,” she said. Devine calls the youth internship program a “great one,” and while Pasco winds down her final months with the municipality, they will be allowing her time to resume her job search. “You have to be supportive of the young university and college graduates to find good solid employment in our community, whether it’s with us or someone else,” she commented.

THE EMC - 42 - Thursday, October 4, 2012

Fred passed away, peacefully, at Lanark Lodge, on Wednesday, September 26, 2012. Fred Walker, at the age of 97 years. A devoted and loving husband, he was predeceased by his beloved wife, Marjorie, in 2011. He will be sadly missed by his children (by birth and marriage), his grandchildren, and one great grandchild, as well as friends from near and far. Fred was a loving and supportive father, and a fantastic grandfather. A world traveler, he and Marjorie visited 38 countries in their 60 plus years together. A life long scholar, Fred had a particular interest in Mesoamerican cultures- Maya, Aztec, Anasazi etc. Intrepid explorers, he and Marjorie visited Mayan ruins in the Yucatan back in the 1980â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, before many of the sites were cleared or open to tourists. Fredâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love of learning is one of the many gifts he has passed along to all those who had the privilege of spending time with him. In keeping with Fredâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wishes, there will be no visitation or formal service. Give someone you love a hug, in memory of Fred, and the next time you are on an adventure of your own in some farflung country, think about how much Fred and Marjorie would have loved to be there with you! Fredâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank the entire staff of the Lanark Lodge, for the love, concern, and exemplary care that our father (and our mother) received while residents there. Fred was an avid supporter of the Guatemala Stove Project (www.guatemalastoveproject.org) Contributions in Fredâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name will help build stoves to benefit the respiratory health of Guatemalan families. Mr. Walkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the care of the Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Dacre Family Funeral Home, Perth 613-267-3082.

CL382196

Passed away peacefully at Lanark Lodge, Monday, October 1, 2012 at the age of 86 years. He leaves to mourn his beloved wife and best friend of over sixty-five years, Ella (Ily) MacLeod; their children, Jim, Dave (Denise), Bruce (Emma), Doug (Lu-Anne), Jeff, Liz (Paul), Barb (Greg) and KC (Ron). He will be fondly remembered by his grandchildren, great-grandchildren, relatives and friends. He was predeceased by his parents, his sister and daughter-in-law (Sue Connell). Mr. Connell lived a full and distinguished life. Born and educated in Nova Scotia schools and at Acadia University, he began his working life with the Royal Bank of Canada as a teller. He left the bank and with Ily, his Whycocomagh bride, moved to Ontario to begin married life and pursue a career in personnel administration, working progressively for private industry companies including Lucas Rotax, Frigidaire, Union Carbide, Lake Ontario Portland Cement and Allied Chemical. Those early years saw Peter and Ily (and a steadily increasing number of children) living in Toronto, Belleville, Montreal, Picton and Montreal again. In 1966, Mr. Connell moved his family to Ottawa, where he joined the federal public service as Director of Personnel for Transport Canada. He was instrumental in the establishment of the Transport Canada Training Institute in Cornwall, Ontario, still operational today. In 1970, Mr. Connell was appointed Deputy Secretary (Personnel Policy) at the Treasury Board working under then Treasury Board President, the Honourable Jean Chretien. Mr. Connell was appointed Deputy Minister, National Revenue (Customs and Excise) in 1974 and served in that role for 7 years during which time he directed the development of the Canada Customs College at Rigaud, Quebec. To his great pleasure, the college was officially opened as the J.P. Connell Campus in spring of 1980. While Deputy Minister at Customs and Excise, Mr. Connell was elected Vice-President and then President, of the International Customs Cooperation Council based in Brussels, Belgium. In 1982, Mr. Connell was appointed Deputy Minister of Agriculture where he remained until his retirement from the federal public service in 1986. While at Agriculture Canada, he led delegations to countries throughout the world including the former Soviet Union, China, New Zealand, Australia, Venezuela, and Mexico. In 1983, Mr. Connell had the privilege to welcome Mikhail Gorbachev to the Central Experimental Farm during Mr. Gorbachev’s first visit to Canada. Mr. Connell was a proud and true public servant, respectfully honoured at his official retirement when presented with a Canadian flag and flag pole, and a rose bearing his name, the J.P. Connell rose. The characteristics of the rose were described to be much like his “…mostly without thorns, capable of surviving the sometimes (politically) cold Ottawa winters, producing beautiful lemony flowers for all to enjoy.” After leaving the public service, Mr. Connell managed his own consulting firm where his expertise was sought to lead the agricultural trade negotiation team for the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) alongside Chief Negotiator, Simon Reisman. He continued to serve, sitting on the boards of directors for the Agricultural Research Institute of Ontario, the Ontario Federation of Agriculture and the University of Guelph, Kemptville College Campus, as well as the committee for the restoration of the Spencerville Mill. In the early 1970s, Peter and Ily moved outside Ottawa to establish a working farm on 150 acres in Oxford Station, Ontario. Together, they cultivated and managed a successful breeding stock of Simmental cattle for almost 20 years, meeting many good people within the farming community. (Outside the farming community, it was sometimes suggested Peter was a “gentleman farmer”, a term that he always contested with the same reply: “While I’ll admit to be a gentleman and a farmer, a gentleman farmer I am not.”) They sold the farm in 1990, downsizing to a smaller ten-acre farm property near Spencerville, Ontario. As he settled into his retirement years, Mr. Connell became J.P. and found great enjoyment in fishing trips and family gatherings at the farm. Together always with Ily, he raised sheep, indulged his interest in cooking and bread-making, and travelled (mostly to visit their children in various parts of the world, and family at home in Nova Scotia). Interestingly, he lived his later days as the co-proprietor, with Ily, of Connell Rose Bed & Breakfast, at their home. For several years, he played host to travellers from across Canada and around the world. As visitors entered the drive, they were greeted with the Canadian flag flying proudly, a row of J.P. Connell rosebushes, and J.P. himself. In 2009, Peter suffered a stroke, which eventually prompted a move to Perth, Ontario to be closer to family. Mr. Connell was deeply in love with his wife and immensely proud of his children. He did not want to grow old. He leaves behind memories of a lifetime of hard work and accomplishment, love, honour and respect. He will be so greatly missed, and always remembered. Friends may pay their respects at the Blair & Son Funeral Home, 15 Gore St. W. Perth on Thursday, October 4th, 2012 from 4:00 until 8:00 P.M. The service will be held in the Chapel on Friday at 11:00 A. M. Interment will be held at a later date in Round Hill, Nova Scotia. In remembrance, contributions to the Lanark Lodge Memorial Fund or the Salvation Army would be appreciated. A hardy, beautiful rose.

McLAREN, Andrew - Loved brother and uncle, killed by a drunk driver. Oct. 19\77 - Sept. 28\96. ‘Tis that time of year again, a time I’d like to forget. It slowly crept upon us, reminding me, I can’t forget. It’s in my heart, It’s on my mind, flashbacks are what I get, reliving it all over like an actress on a set. From the moment we answered the door that morning, till the time we laid you down, I cannot stop this play I’m in, it’s like a merry-go-round. No matter how many years go by, this play continues on. For some of us it never ends, but goes on and on. Maybe someday this play will end and I can take a final bow, letting others know that I made it through some how. Wishful thinking on my part as I know it will never be. When I get flashbacks of that horrible night, it consumes and swallows me. Our hearts ache without you Andrew. Love Stephanie and Blade

LADOUCEUR In loving memory of my dearest son, Shawn, who passed away accidentally October 8, 1982. Sweet are the memories that never fade, The ones we loved but could not save. Memories can bring sadness With pain and sorrow too. As we long for things to be the same, As when they were shared with you. Loved and missed Mom

WILSON, Linda - In loving memory of a dear wife, mother and grandmother, who passed away October 7, 2011. One year has passed, our hearts still sore, As time rolls on we miss you more, Your welcome smile and pleasant face, No one can fill that vacant place. Always in our hearts John & Family

To all grandparents and victims of the social system -We the grandparents need to take a stand to bring back family values. We as grandparents have raised children and need to be given the respect we have earned. New parents, even if they wish to not have a relationship with their own mothers and fathers should not keep grandchildren from their grandparents. As grandparents, and the older generation, we have knowledge and experiences new parents don’t have as of yet. New parents seem to take advantage of us financially, through babysitting and more. When we wish to have a relationship with our grandchildren the favour is not returned. I make a plea to all grandparents to write a letter to us in support of grandparents everywhere -we need to be brought back into our grandchildren’s lives. (P.O.Box 455, Station Main, Perth ON K7H 3G1)

EMC - Your Community Newspaper

Reverse logic at work in terms of rail travel EMC Lifestyle - We live in a Carleton Place neighbourhood where a rail freight line runs along the back of our property. We bought this house with the full knowledge trains ran behind it. We’ve lived here for more than 20 years and have co-existed very nicely with the rail line. Sure there was the odd occasion when shunting freight cars in the middle of the night woke us up. Once in a while a train engineer would blow the whistle too long. And very rarely an idling engine proved to be an annoyance. Mostly though the trains just rolled past and disappeared into the distance and more often than not they were a good time check. We got used to the daily schedule and could pretty well predict when the next train would pass. We got so used to trains that the only time we took notice of them was when visitors would comment on the fact the tracks were close to our place. We like trains and are more than content to see them running through our community. Now the only trains which pass our subdivision are work trains. Crews are in the process of tearing up the rail freight line between Arnprior and Smiths Falls. They haven’t reached Carleton Place yet but they are working in neighbouring Mississippi Mills, so our turn is coming soon. The track itself and other infrastructure are being shipped west where it is being used to help lay a new line to the oil fields of northern Alberta. Like so many Canadian communities Carleton Place was once a major rail hub. Freight and passenger services ran through the town and residents were once able to hop on the train in the morning and travel to nearby Ottawa for work or a day of shopping in the big city. At night they took the train home. Those days are long gone. My wife and I moved here 36 years ago and the daily passenger service to and from Ottawa was already a distant memory. The cross-country train ‘The Canadian’ called here right through the 1970s. But in the early `80s the 28 kilometres of track between here and Nepean was closed and in the blink of an eye the tracks were torn up. It was incredible how fast that line disappeared! I was the editor of the local community newspaper at the time. I wrote editorials lamenting the loss of the passenger rail line and predicted we would all live to regret that decision. I’m sorry to say that I was absolutely right in this case. We now know that corridor and rail track

would have been the perfect channel for a light rail service from bedroom communities such as Carleton Place, Mississippi Mills and Beckwith Township to Ottawa where so many of our residents work. True, they have finally completed the four-laning of busy Highway 7 from Stittsville west to Carleton Place and that is a Godsend. Overcrowded roads On the other hand ask anyone in the “commuter army” from here and they will tell you the new highway “only gets you to the jam faster.” Highway 417 through Kanata and Nepean remains a bottleneck and it will probably continue to be despite a project aimed at widening the roadway to three lanes in each direction. There are simply too many cars and trucks, especially during rush hour Monday to Friday. We need light rail to improve the passenger transportation links to the city. But with the rail infrastructure gone that is only a pipe dream. The cost of reestablishing such a system from scratch is totally cost prohibitive. Certainly government – the taxpayers –can’t afford to pay for it. Shame on those shortsighted people who made the decision to tear up the passenger line in the early 1980s! Now the same thing is happening to the freight line which, if there was any will to do so, could also serve as a passenger link. But in a province where the road and street infrastructure is crumbling under the ever growing weight of more and more motor vehicles we are left with virtually no other good, surface travel options in so many communities. The bus is the best option here but that too is limited. At least you can grab a Greyhound to Toronto! The only rail alternatives for people here are in Smiths Falls or Barrhaven, in south Ottawa, where VIA Rail stations are in place. That line will get you to Brockville, Kingston, Toronto and points in between and is a very viable service. But the line is inaccessible to so many people across Eastern Ontario, including ourselves. They built a brand new VIA station in Smiths Falls recently. A great concept but the building is remarkably small, parking is limited and the washrooms were added as an afterthought. Part of the limited thinking that clearly surrounds passenger rail service in this country! We recently returned from Great Britain where people also complain long and loud about the deteriorating passenger rail service.

Reflections JEFF MAGUIRE

There is very little to complain about that we can see. After flying to Glasgow, via London, we spent a few days in Comrie, Scotland which is twinned with Carleton Place. We were there for 20th anniversary observances and represented our community as members of the Sister City Committee which I currently chair. Part two of our UK visit was a week in London. Kathleen and I and our friends Wendy and Frank LeBlanc (she is the current Mayor of Carleton Place) elected to take the train from Scotland to London. We all enjoy train travel, especially in Europe where service is so much more advanced. True there is no train to Comrie any more. Many small communities have been cut off which is unfortunate. But the train is not far away and the system works. In this case our friend George Lees drove us to nearby Dunblane, the home of Olympic and U.S. Open men’s tennis champion Andy Murray. I mention Murray because in the wake of the Olympics there were signs in Dunblane congratulating their native son on his recent success! From Dunblane we easily caught an early morning ScotRail commuter train to Edinburgh’s Waverley Street Station. The ride was smooth as silk and we arrived right on schedule. Waverley Station doesn’t have a lot to recommend it really. A big, ugly barn of a place. But you can catch trains to communities across Scotland, England and Wales. We took the main east coast line from Edinburgh south to King’s Cross Station in London, a very familiar destination for Kathy and me. On this trip the only stops were in Newcastleupon-Tyne, Darlington and York all in northeast England. From York it was a really fast, efficient run into London. They have renovated King’s Cross over the past few years and it is even easier to get around now with new elevators added and other customer-friendly improvements made. The taxi queue is in the same place it always was, opposite St. Pancras Station, and we soon caught a cab to our hotel. A few days later we took the Brighton Express from Victoria Station in Central London to the south coast resort city, one of our favourite seaside destinations in Britain. After an enjoy-

merous factors at work here. But for my money we have completely missed the boat when it comes to this fast, efficient means of transportation and that is a terrible shame for all of us! Where is the logic in what

we are doing in Canada when it comes to public transport? If you have any comments or questions for Jeff Maguire he can be reached by e-mail at: jeffrey.maguire@rogers.com

able, sunny day in Brighton we reversed field and headed back to London on a late afternoon train. Everything went absolutely swimmingly. With rail passes pre-purchased at our local travel agent’s the process is amazingly simple. UK trains are almost as efficient as the London Tube which is absolutely incredible by the way! We’ve traveled across the length and breadth of Britain by rail over the course of 17 years and rarely had a problem. Meanwhile back in Canada to call rail travel “service” is being far too generous. The system stinks quite frankly and with more rail lines being torn up as we speak, the situation can only get worse. In this day and age with fuel costs high, main roadways overcrowded and air travel cost prohibitive for many of us the railway just seems like such a wonderful alternative. If we had any rail links to speak of that is. Obviously there are nu-

Still time to register for Kemptville Walks for Mammography Oct. 13 courages direct referrals and women between the ages of 50 to 74 can book their mammogram without a doctor’s note. “We want more of the population that’s recommended to get mammograms,” noted Jenny Read, KDH communications. “We know it’s not the most pleasant experience so that’s why we’re taking steps to make patients more comfortable.” “Your best chance of survival is early detection,” she added. “Pick up the phone and call. Even if you don’t have a doctor’s referral, you can still make an appointment.” Participants have the opportunity to pick up route information at the registration night Thursday, Oct. 10 at KDH, so they don’t have to come early to register the morning of the event. Registration packages can also be obtained during the day on Friday at the hospital. Individuals can register

Kemptville District Hospital (KDH) is getting set to host Kemptville Walks for Mammography on Saturday, Oct. 13. There is a 30K walk which begins at 8 a.m. and a 10K walk which begins at noon that day. With only two weeks left, some of the walkers held a yard sale in the hospital parking lot to raise their pledges on Sept. 29, above. From left: Elizabeth Wenner, Jennifer Bradshaw, Mary Boucher and Cathy Sentnor. Registration is still open and those interested can call Mary Boucher at 613-258-3435. to be here giving massages to everyone afterwards,” she commented, adding that Shopper’s Drug Mart is also planning a Pink Party to celebrate the event. “Niki Friend of Shopper’s will be doing makeovers and all that kind of fun stuff.” “...People will be able to go home feeling pampered and special,” Boucher continued. In addition to the Pink Party, once walkers are finished at between 3 and 4:30 p.m., they will be treated to barbecued pulled pork from Winchester Food Mart. The family and friends of participants will be able to purchase food as well. Mammography awareness campaign Boucher stressed that Kemptville Walks for Mam-

mography has an important role to play in raising awareness of mammograms. The hospital is looking for women between the ages of 50 to 69, which represents about 11,000 females in KDH’s catchment area, to be screened. “People need to realize and we need to get the awareness out there that this is a really important program,” Boucher said. “Ten minutes could save your life.” To encourage this, KDH will soon kick-off a new campaign promoting more comfortable mammogram experience, complete with plush spa robes, caring technologists, digital mammography technology, warm digital detectors and extended hours to work around women’s busy schedules.

EMC Events – Dozens will be lacing up their running shoes and going the distance for Kemptville District Hospital (KDH) during the inaugural Kemptville Walks for Mammography Saturday, Oct. 13. The event is being held in order to help the KDH Foundation realize its goal of raising $750,000 for the state-ofthe-art digital mammography suite at the hospital. The suite opened last October in the diagnostic imaging unit of the hospital, who provided advance funding for the unit, but the foundation still has $275,000 left to pay off. Born out of the cancelled Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation’s ‘Weekend to End Women’s Cancers,’ KDH Foundation development officer Mary Boucher said planning for the fundraiser is going well. “We’re hoping to have 50 walkers come out and raise $50,000 in this first year,” she noted, adding that presently there are approximately 45 participants registered. “Right now, it looks like we will raise in the area of $40,000, but it’s not too late for someone to sign up!” Many of the participants registered had previously walked in the ‘Weekend to End Women’s Cancers,’ where 75 per cent of those funds came back to KDH to benefit local mammography services. However, Boucher indicated those signed up for Kemptville Walks for Mammography are “happy to know 100 per cent of the funds are staying here in Kemptville.” “Many like the idea of walking in Kemptville,” she said. The fundraiser features 10K and 30K distances and the route and race day preparation is being worked out by InStride Event Management. The walk begins from the upper administration parking lot at KDH on Concession Road and will take walkers on a scenic walk around Kemptville. At 8 a.m. the 30K walkers will set out and later at noon, the 10K participants will begin. Boucher said local resident and ardent KDH supporter Norma Fisher will serve as honourary chair of the walk. She also indicated there are plenty of prizes and gifts and special consideration has been paid to ensuring participants get a chance to relax following the walk. “Back in Motion are going

right up until race day and those participating in the 30K must raise $1,250 or $500 to walk in the 10K. “Anybody looking to walk but doesn’t feel that’s enough time (to raise the funds) we’ll be happy to take an IOU and you can pay afterwards,” Boucher stated. “You don’t have to have $500 to walk, we just want to get tour goal of $50,000 and 50 participants.” “We’re still a little ways off in getting to pay off the mammography unit so we want to hold the event again next year and hopefully we’ll reach our original commitment (for the mammography unit),” she added.

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Kemptville Players Inc. has been busy this past summer with 1812 reenactments and are now gearing up for the fall season. In June some of their actors took part in an 1812 celebration in Spencerville and again at the Homewood Museum in August. Five actors wore period costumes and read letters and notes from different women who experienced life during the war, some who followed their husbands, some who stayed to guard the family homestead and some who just had interesting and hairraising experiences.

The Kemptville Players are now in rehearsal for â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Actorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nightmareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; which is a one-act play that will go to Kingston for the One-Act Play Festival Nov. 9 to 11. Nine plays are performed over the weekend. They are adjudicated and prizes awarded. Being judged certainly adds to the fear and excitement of performing! They are also putting on two murder mysteries in December for Christmas parties. The Kemptville Players have selected a spring play for 2013 and auditions for that will be held in December or early January. They

held a general meeting on Sept. 19 to discuss our upcoming events and to plan their Christmas party which will be held on Dec. 9 at the IOOF hall. The Kemptville Players are always looking for aspiring, inspiring and talented thespians to be on-stage, off-stage or just to help in any capacity. The Kemptville Players has a place for everyone to showcase their creative side. For more information, please email exec@kemptvilleplayers.ca. Submitted by the Kemptville Players.

Exploring preventative health care at Ferguson Forest Centre as well as our own backyards. The abundance of medicinal plants in the area was illustrated by the fact that we spent the first ten minutes discussing the medicinal plants in the parking lot! Dr. Yakimovich made it very clear that although many common medicinal plants can be used safely, it is important to consult your health care provider prior to using herbal medicine to make sure there are no harmful drug or disease interactions. While discussing the me-

dicinal properties of common lawn weeds such as dandelions, Dr. Yakimovich pointed out that one should be certain that they have not been treated with pesticides or other harmful chemicals. Minimizing our exposure to harmful toxins is one significant component of preventative health care. As you develop your new health care strategy, remember that physical activity should be a pillar in that strategy. According to Dr. Yakimovich, ongoing research in Japan suggests that

regular walks through the forest deliver significant benefits to our immune systems as we inhale beneficial essential oils and plant chemicals that are released into the air by the trees in the forest. It turns out a stroll through the forest really is essential for a healthy mind, body and soul! Dr. Yakimovich’s walk through the forest with the Friends of the Ferguson Forest Centre introduced the Friends to a whole new dimension of the forest centre. It was truly

amazing to learn about the complexity and healing powers of the plants which we have been walking by every day. If you would like to learn about the medicinal properties of some of the plants that grow in the Ferguson Forest Centre, visit www.friendsofthefergusonforest.ca and click on the Fall 2012 newsletter. If you would like to share some knowledge that you have of the Ferguson Forest Centre or you have a suggestion for an educational walk, please send us an email

at executives@friendsofthefergusonforest.ca. Dr. Yakimovich is a licensed naturopathic doctor practicing in Kemptville. Naturopathic doctors receive eight years of post-secondary education, including four years of naturopathic medical training. NDs use diet and clinical nutrition, herbal medicine, homeopathic medicine and acupuncture to treat disease and restore health. Submitted by the Friends of the Ferguson Forest Centre.

Kemptville 73â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s skate away with shootout win By BRIAN WILSON

EMC Sports - Before the week started, Kemptville pulled the trigger on a trade. The 73â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sent forwards Matt Rosebrook and Stevie Ray Adams to the Gloucester Rangers for defenceman Brad Vaughn and forward Brett Varrin. Both are former members of the 73â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Vaughn brings over 150 games of CCHL experience to the team and a steadying presence on the blue line and Varrin adds a scoring touch, having accumulated 47 points last season. Also involved in the deal were two prospects from each team. The action opened on Tuesday, September 25 at the Kanata Recreational Complex as the 73â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s faced the Stallions.

Three periods and overtime were not enough to pick a winner in this battle. Lucas Gonu opened the scoring for Kemptville at the 0:16 mark, stunning the home crowd. Both new members of the team, Vaughn and Varrin, picked up the assists. Kanata tied the game at 1 late in the second period. The third saw Kanata take the lead but Kemptville regained the advantage midway through the frame. The marksmen for Kemptville were Shane Hiley, with his first of the year and Blaine Byron with his third. Getting the assists were Brian Taylor, Alex Row, Cody Hendsbee and Matt Martin. The Stallions were able to tie it with less than three minutes left. With the game tied

3-3, the teams went to overtime and no one was able to score. The sixth shooter in the shootout was the only one to score and that gave Kanata the victory. The 73â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s were unable to solve Stallions netminder, Brandon Lane, as he stopped 37 of the 40 shots he faced. Cody Hendsbee was named second star of the game. Braves 5, 73â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2 Next stop was the Brockville Memorial Centre on Friday, Sept. 28. The game got away from the 73â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the first period as they took four penalties and the Braves scored on two of the ensuing power plays. The team got things back on track in the second when Mason Nowak scored his third of the year from Blaine

TAKE YOUR BEST SHOT Kemptville Minor Hockey wrapped up its preseason goalie clinics for minor hockey members of all ages. The clinics were conducted by volunteers Ryan Dawson and Bob Schrader with the help of midget-aged goal shooters. Over four weeks and eight sessions, the older aged KDMHA goalies have learned to work with the younger ages to make themselves available throughout the year to assist at practices as mentors. The mentor program provides a great opportunity for hockey skills, confidence and character development as well as volunteer hours! A great big thank you to all of the Kemptville 73â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s players who have provided shooting support at all the clinics!

Byron and Shane Snow on the power play. Down 3-1 going into the third, Stephen Cooney pulled the team within one goal, again on the power play. The goal was set up by new team member, Zach Lindsay. Zach, a resident of New Jersey, joined the team as free agent recently having played in the British Columbia Hockey League. With the 73â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s down 3-2, Brockville finished them off with less than three minutes to play in the game. They added an empty net goal to seal the win by a score of 5-2. The 73â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Blaine Byron was named the third star. Byron has also committed to play for the NCAA Division 1 University of Maine Black Bears next season. 73â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 5, Rangers 4 (SO) On Sunday, September 30, the Gloucester Rangers visited North Grenville. The players involved in last weeks trade got to face their former teams right away. Zach Lindsay opened things up with a steal at the Rangers blue line and scored, putting the 73â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up 1-0 only 54 seconds from the opening face off. Gloucester evened it up halfway through the period but Lucas Gonu put Kemptville back out in front 45 seconds later. The goal was Gonuâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sixth of the year and was set up by Brett Varrin and Blaine Byron. Gloucester would not

go away and managed to tie the game at two before the period ended. In the second it was all Varrin as he scored his first two as a member of the 73s, one short handed and one on the power play. Picking up the assists were Shane Snow, Dylan Brindâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Amour, Gonu and Byron. Again, in the third period, the Rangers fought back. With Kemptville holding a 4-2 lead, Gloucester scored twice to tie the game. With the overtime proving fruitless, the teams went to the shootout. This time, Kemptville prevailed with Byron getting the only goal. Varrin and Gonu were named first and second stars respectively. With ten games in the books and only three wins, Head Coach, Pat Malloy, said that the games have been clos-

er than it looks on paper. Of the seven non wins only one was a real stinker. Two were shoot out losses, one was a goal post in the final minute and three were giving up goals in the last three or so minutes of a game they were in. He is happy with the players he has right now and believes that the games will improve as the team learns how to play complete games. Next weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s games feature the 73â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s travelling to Smiths Falls on Friday, October 5, to face the Bears.

Rideau Glen ladies end sweltering golfing season By CECILE FORTIER

The Rideau Glen Ladies Golf League recently wrapped up their season and held one last get together where a game of golf was played and awards handed out. Above, ladies earning trophies included, from left: Elaine MacNaughtan, Lana Hanes, Marjorie Graham, Pat Hayes, Marg McCornock, Pat Kealey, Carolyn Richardson and Barb Townson. Below, the Lillian and Bill Thorpe Cup capped off the season Sept. 26. Earning the top prize in that tournament were, from left: Wayno Madaglia, Cecile Fortier, Louise LaRiviere and Manny Kwitschau. Presenting the cup to the winners was Bonnie Hall, far right, daughter of Lillian and Bill Thorpe.

The end of the season has arrived and most players have already gone to other activities. The few avid golfers are still seen on the links in spite of the coolness in the air and the honking of the geese above on their way to warmer climates. Some of the players will also follow suit. I wish to all my fellow golfers a very good and healthy winter. See you all in the spring! Cecile Fortier is secretary and reporter of the Rideau Glen Ladies Golf League.

The season had many facets: rain for most of May and part of June, then intense heat and humidity for June, July and August. But September had a mixture of heat and rain, two Tuesdays out of four was rained-out. Also cooler weather with frost did its appearance giving us a hint of what is to come. The game played for this last get together was: use only three clubs, putter included. The ladies had to choose wisely and think of course management. It was fun but very challenging. Pat Hayes was the winner of this game with the lowest score of all. Pat has had a very good summer representing the Ladies of Rideau Glen in many of the Ottawa Valley Golf Association (OVGA) tournaments and winning money in most of them. Shall we call her a â&#x20AC;&#x153;pro?â&#x20AC;? Kudos to you, Pat! Nicole Deslauriers presented a birdie pin to Bonnie Hall, and mentions to Joyce Charter, Libby Price, Diane Miller and Cecile Fortier. She also gave prizes to those who won in the monthly games. Marg McCornock as representative of OVGA, handed the winning plaque (trophy) to the ladies who played in the Senior Intersectional on Sept. 17 at Rideau Glen. Four of the ladies each made six points, while others made four, three and one for our winning team. By being the winners, the ladies go up one division to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jâ&#x20AC;? for next year. Well done, ladies!

Citizens group saves old turbine in Merrickville R0011660723_1004

Submitted photo

A group of local residents have saved a 97 year-old turbine in Merrickville after Parks Canada had planned to scrap the piece of equipment. On Aug. 28, the local residents, who have formed the group Friends of the Merrickville Turbine, assumed ownership of the turbo-generator. nadian and overseas organizations associated with the development of electric power in Canada, as well as other recognized funding agencies active in eastern Ontario. One substantial donation has been made by a concerned citizen and a second major donation has been promised. Key to the plan is the installation of informative signage outlining what foresight the original builders had in 1914, when they seemed to understand that the future lay with renewable “green” electric energy. Several monographs on the history of the development of waterpower and electricity in the region have also been drafted for publication and a website is under consideration. The Friends expects the work to be completed by mid-2013 and a celebration event is planned for the centenary of its commissioning in June 2015. For more information on
