EMC News – Kingston will become only the third Ontario city to ban the sale of “unsourced” cats, dogs and rabbits from pet stores. Councillors decided to implement the retail restrictions, described by some as extreme and heavy-handed, in order to reduce the city’s growing number of unwanted and stray animals and to curb the sale of animals from illegal breeders and puppy mills. Supporters of the ban say it’s not as drastic as some may think. They point out pet stores can still sell the animals as long as they come spayed or neutered from animal shelters and rescue groups. “There will still be dogs, cats and rabbits,” explained Coun. Lisa Osanic, a champion of the incoming bylaw. “The only difference is all of them will come from rescue groups.” Council voted 8-3 to adopt the bylaw February 5, with an implementation date to be decided later, following pleas from animal advocacy groups and a 900-name petition. “We now have the most progressive ban in Canada,” said a delighted Jessica Hellard with Kingston Animal Rescue, which staged a large demonstration outside the council chambers with banners stating ‘pets are not products.’ The group argues pet stores do not need to sell pets in order to survive, noting some national chains now focus on selling food and other supplies. However, the local Chamber of Commerce urged council to vote against the bylaw. “It’s freedom of choice,” said chamber president Matt Hutcheon, who believes the bylaw infringes on the rights of retailers to sell a legal product. He also fears the pet sale ban will drive customers to shop for animals in neighbouring municipalities, and potentially open the city to a costly legal challenge. A handful of councillors agreed the ban is too heavyhanded on businesses. “I just find it extreme,” said

Coun. Jeff Scott. Coun. Bryan Paterson says it could drive even more people to buy their pets through unregulated internet sites. He noted: “Pet stores are being penalized for their transparency.” Sarah Perry, owner of The Pet Store in the Cataraqui Town Centre, says the pet sale ban will impact about 40 percent of her revenues, insisting her store deals with reputable suppliers. “Slow down, take a breath and think about what you’re doing,” she urged council. Perry says many of the cats and dogs she sells come from owners who can’t look after unplanned litters. She also complained that efforts to contact rescue/shelter animals to sell their strays have been ignored. Despite her pleas, most politicians sided with animal protection groups who point out that pets currently sold in stores do not have to be spayed or neutered, adding to the overpopulation problem. “Our costs to the humane society have skyrocketed,” said Coun. Liz Schell of the taxfunded city pound that cared for about 3,000 stray or unwanted animals last year. A proposal to allow residents to continue to drop off their unwanted litters to pet stores was removed from the bylaw. Coun. Osanic says the “loophole” could allow pet store employees posing as residents to buy unsourced animals and then covertly donate them to their own stores – a loophole Toronto is now trying to close in its own pet sale bylaw. Kingston had other options to consider such as requiring pet stores to regulate the sale of cats and dogs by tracking the names, addresses and animal care information of pet suppliers and buyers. However, council favoured an outright ban on the practice - unless the pets come to their stores from shelters and rescue centres. It’s believed the bylaw will impact two stores in Kingston that currently sell unsourced cats, dogs and rabbits; The Pet Store and Pet Paradise. The bylaw does not prohibit the sale of other pets such as reptiles, spiders, fish and birds.

City seeks corporate name for its Outdoor Aquatic Centre

sweet

By Bill Hutchins

Manitobah MuklukS

Reporter

EMC News – Want to have your company name on a splashy new pool? Now you can, if the price is right. The City of Kingston wants to sell the naming rights to another one of its public recreational facilities, even though some councillors are openly uneasy about it. “I see it as a cutback on our civic dignity,” said Coun. Rob Hutchison who opposed the move. Council voted 7-4 to seek a corporate sponsor for the widely-used Outdoor Aquatic Centre (OAC) on the Kingston Memorial Centre grounds in order to offset some of its operating costs. Over 30,000 people have cooled-off at the outdoor pool, splash pad and waterslide complex since it opened in 2011, but it still requires an annual tax subsidy to stay afloat. This year’s pool subsidy will amount to $194,000 which, coincident-

ly, is nearly the same yearly amount the city pays to operate Belle Park Fairways, a public golf course that’s being considered for closure. It’s unclear how much money the city hopes to raise through a corporate donor at its only outdoor aquatic centre, but would like a naming rights deal to be finalized in time for when the aquatic centre reopens at the end of May. The additional revenue will reduce the financial burden on taxpayers and pool users, staff noted in a report to council February 5. “In order to maintain the intent of keeping fee increases at no more than 3% and to ensure that individuals with low income can access the facility, staff are recommending that the city proceed with the sale of the name of the OAC,” said a report by community services commissioner Lanie Hurdle. Coun. Hutchison says tying naming rights to civic taxes is regrettable. “I express

regret this kind of action staff are driven to, to meet that criteria.” The intent is to find a sponsor’s name for the entire complex, although the pool tank’s commemorative name as Leo LaFleur Pool, assigned in 1975, will be kept. Mayor Mark Gerretsen says given the city’s push to limit the property tax increase to 2.5 percent this year and next, selling naming rights to this and other public places leaves the city with little choice. “Right now we have to exercise restraint,” he said, adding, “We are in very difficult times financially.” But some councillors say the growing trend to attach private names to public facilities is worrisome. “It is a bit of a sellout,” said Coun. Jim Neill, who also voted against the measure. He suggested the city should try and hyphenate the OAC’s name to include the highest bidding company plus a local citizen who is worthy

of civic recognition, such as Olympic gold medal winning triathlete Simon Whitfield. Mayor Gerretsen says the city can always look at naming its recreational buildings after notable citizens once the corporate contracts expire, but now is not the time. The city has sold naming rights to other well-known municipal assets - such as KRock Centre, Invista Centre, Springer Market Square and Caraco Home Field - to help offset their operating or construction costs. The sponsorship deals vary in length from three to 10 years. The only exception is Springer Market Square, where the Springer family name will remain in perpetuity thanks to a one million dollar donation to help the square’s transformation into a year-round attraction. The Invista Centre’s fiveyear deal will soon expire and the city has already launched a bidding process to find a new sponsor for the multiplex arena.

City’s pet tag policy has too much bark: Humane Society

off

By Bill Hutchins Reporter

EMC News – Kingston councillors decided to hold off on new rules to promote responsible pet ownership. This comes after the Kingston Humane Society voiced concerns that it’s laced with too many penalties and not enough incentives for pet owners. “Unless we have full buy-in from the humane society and other stakeholders it’s going to be extremely difficult to implement this program,” said Mayor Mark Gerretsen. Council was set to approve the program February 5, but decided to delay it until later this month. It could be delayed even further in order to create a working group of councillors and stakeholders to re-evaluate the new rules and focus on introducing more pet ownerfriendly incentives. “There’s more that we can do,” said the mayor. While humane society officials applaud the new program as a good start, they urged the city to take it a step further by helping cat and dog owners get their animals tagged and fixed at affordable rates. “We want compliance with licensing and regulation. In order to do that we have to provide sufficient incentives for people to do that,” said Janice Saunders, the humane society’s president. Among the incentives that should be considered; mediation service for feuding neighbours with pets, a ‘rewards program’ with retail discounts at local businesses for pet owners who comply with the rules, and lower costs for spaying and neutering, Saunders explained. “They have a rewards program that’s so popular in Calgary that

people actually pretend they have a pet when they don’t, so they can become a member. It includes a 10 percent discount at IKEA.” The initial focus of Kingston’s proposed Responsible Pet Ownership Program was on higher tag fees, stepped up enforcement and a few incentives for responsible cat and dog owners. The policy’s aim is to get as many household pets registered as possible with tag fees ranging from $25 to $50 a year. Fees will be on the lower end of the range if the animal is spayed or neutered. City bylaw officials argue the higher fees are consistent with what other municipalities are charging to offset the cost of impounded animals, while striking a fair balance between owners who register their pets and those who don’t. Owners of untagged pets that end up at the pound could face a $100 registration fee, plus the tag fee, along with pound costs and municipal trespassing fines to get their pooch back. Mayor Gerretsen, who proposed deferring the policy until August for a working group’s review, says stakeholders and pet owners need to embrace the responsibility push or it’s doomed to failure. Saunders says setting the fees too high will lead to even more unclaimed or untagged pets. She says the policy to give tagged animals a free ride home is a good step, but there needs to be other incentives. “Jacking up the cost to buy a license on an unaltered animal when it can cost over $500 to get that animal altered, without providing any kind assistance, is not going to make people run out and buy their tags,” she added. It’s estimated only 15 percent of the city’s dogs are currently tagged and registered.

Gallery fundraiser invites community to bid on some SweetART By Kristen Coughlar

kcoughlar@perfprint.ca

EMC News – Lovers of local art and online shopping are sure to enjoy the Kingston School of Art’s latest fundraising initiative. From now until March 2, members of the community will have the opportunity to bid online for a piece of art by Kingston artist Marsha Gormley. “Each day we’re going to post one of the paintings online and people will have 24 hours to bid on it. There is a reserve bid but it’s a half to a third of the price,” Gormley explained. Gormley is the director of the Window Art Gallery at the Kingston School of Art. She said the idea to host an online art auction came about from a bit of problem solving. “I have a lot of pieces around that have been previously shown, some excess, so I was looking for a way to find homes for some of them,” she stated. “We [also] didn’t have anyone who had rented the gallery space this month, and we’ve also been really curious about the online marketing thing and also wanting to get more people to come to our website.”

And so, the SweetART Daily Auction was born. Gormley explained that a SweetART fundraiser for the gallery was also held last year around this time. It was a dance. Tickets to this event entitled dance goers to a piece of artwork. “It sort of just worked out perfectly that we would do this as the second annual in a slightly different way,” Gormley said. “It’s just a nice chance to sort of experiment with a new idea.” Gormley’s pieces that will be up for bid during the SweetART Daily Auction represent an eclectic mix from her previous exhibits. Having been a teacher for over 30 years, Gormley said she spent her summers creating art. She would attend courses at institutions like St. Lawrence College. “That seemed to be the only time I really had to spend on art…I was using any creative energy I had for teaching,” she said. That changed about 10 or 11 years ago when she retired. Since then, she’s immersed herself in creating art and says she enjoys experimenting with her craft. “I find it hard sticking to

one thing…I like playing around with soft and hard edges, I love colour, I love movement, I love energy I guess.” All of Gormley’s pieces in the SweetART Daily Auction are currently on exhibition at 647 Princess Street at Victoria Street. One piece from this exhibit will appear online ach day for 24 hours. The highest bidder at the end of the 24 hours will be contacted the following day and be invited to a closing reception on March 3, at which point they will be able to pick up their purchased piece of artwork. Any remaining works that were not bid on during the auction will also be available, at the full purchase price, during the reception from 2-4 p.m. Gormley will be donating 100 per cent of the proceeds from the auction to the Kingston School of Art and Window Art Gallery, and is hoping to raise $500 with this new endeavour. “This is nice for me because it’s kind of combining my passions of art and philanthropy. Everybody here is a volunteer so it’s just nice to be able to use something that you’re passionate about for a good cause,” she said.

The Kingston School or Art and Window Art Gallery present the SweetART Daily Auction, running now until March 3. Each day a new work by Kingston artist and Gallery Director Marsha Gormley (pictured) will be up for bid as part of this firstPhoto/Kristen Coughlar time fundraiser.

Animal Control picked up Hope between Tichborne and Sharbot Lake on Highway 38 on Jan. 25. She was brought to the Kingston Humane Society (KHS) as

a stray. Upon examination, shelter staff noticed a number of healed over wounds on her body. “In one of them a pellet was half sticking out. We

pulled that one out and then sent her to the vet to have X-rays done to see if there were any others. There are at least three more in her neck and shoulder area, so she’s having surgery tomorrow,” said Lindsay Hadcock, animal population manager. Last Thursday, Hope underwent surgery to have the remaining pellets removed. “It’s probably going to be pretty major because the pellets have migrated in; they’re not just at the surface,” Hadcock said. The KHS investigations unit is seeking information pertaining to who owned Hope or who might have committed this act of animal cruelty. The persons responsible for this act could face a of up to a $60,000 fine, up to two years in prison, restitution counseling, lifetime prohibition from owning an animal, and any other penalties the court believes appropriate. Hadcock noted that cases like this can often be difficult to prosecute, as those with information are sometimes wary about stepping forward. While difficult, it is important that these individuals do speak up. “If this person has other pets or children, we need to be able to step in.”

Those with information regarding Hope’s case are urged to contact the KHS investigations department at 613-546-1291 ext. 111 or investigations@kingstonhumanesociety.ca. All calls and tips will remain confidential. The KHS is also accepting donations at the shelter and online, www.kingstonhumanesociety.ca, for the cost of Hope’s surgery. Hope’s surgery is estimated at $800 to $900 barring any unforeseen circumstances. Once healed, Hope will be available for adoption, but in the meantime applications are being accepted. “She’s super sweet. When we were in the treatment room looking at her and got the pellet out we were in tears because of the complete and utter malicious cruelty that someone inflicted on this dog, and she was just licking our faces and wagging her tail. She’s certainly on the timid side, and certainly timid with men, but just a sweet, sweet girl that would just climb up into your lap,” Hadcock said. The KHS adoption application form can be found on the organization’s website. Once filled out, it can be dropped off at the shelter at 1 Binnington Crt.

High-tech council chamber makes its ‘push button’ debut Reporter

EMC News – Swipe cards and push-button technology will replace a show of hands at city council meetings in the future. Councillors returned to the familiar horseshoe

Among the approved bylaw changes; -councillors must swipe an electronic identity card to sign-in or sign-out at a council meeting, even if they leave briefly to go to the washroom, -councillors wishing to speak must press a button

The technology will enhance the effective meeting management the mayor is striving for John Bolognone

desk February 5 to get their first-look at the $270,000 tax-funded technology upgrades that have kept them away from City Hall since late November. But the upgrades could not be used right away. Councillors must first undergo orientation sessions so information technology staff can provide them lessons in how to use the new high-tech equipment, known as the Taiden Conferencing System. They also had to revise several clauses of council’s own procedural bylaw to incorporate changes that reflect the enhanced technology. “The technology will enhance the effective meeting management the mayor is striving for,” said city clerk John Bolognone.

on their desk console to enter into the automated speakers queue, -all votes are electronic by pushing a button on desk consoles, then automatically recorded into city archives and displayed on drop-down projection screens in the chamber. “No more calling out. No more hands up. Just a button,” explained Wayne Rice, the city’s information technology supervisor. Though the changes seem designed to give council the ‘silent treatment,’ city officials say they will enhance the transparency of local government by recording every spoken word and vote council makes. And, the mayor retains the power to override the technology to hear political objections

and concerns for any matter on the agenda. The bylaw also retains age-old procedures, such as a show of hands and a member’s request for a recorded vote, in the event the technology is out of service or if the meeting is held away from the council chamber. “The technology upgrades are a nice thing and I like how they blend in and don’t stick out,” observed Mayor Mark Gerretsen of the revamped room. A small army of computer technicians took a seat in the back of the council room as the new equipment made its debut. Despite a few glitches starting a PowerPoint presentation, the system appeared to work flawlessly. But councillors won’t get full use of the equipment until their next meeting February 19. The upgrades include a new microphone and speaker system, projector screen display system for politicians, presenters and the public, plus high-definition cameras to record and stream future meetings. City officials say it represents a major leap toward paperless meetings. The desktop system allows councillors to access agendas, reports, motions and municipal archives from their seat. It does not, however, allow them to surf the internet during meetings.

Editorial

EMC - Your Community Newspaper In Our Opinion

It’s the thought that counts Coughlar's Corner By Kristen Coughlar kcoughlar@theheritageemc.ca

EMC Editorial – Today is Valentine’s Day. It is a holiday that is both loved and despised by people across the globe. As my colleague and friend Mark Bergin wrote last week in his Daytripper column, there are those who relish the opportunity to spend a romantic evening with their partner and shower them with love. For others, who are not coupled up, the holiday has been adapted to be a celebration of the single life. Then there are those who denounce Valentine’s Day all together on account of its commercialism.

I’m seated firmly on the fence when it comes to my opinion of Saint Valentine’s Day. I don’t dislike the holiday, but I don’t celebrate it either. In fact, it might go unnoticed if not for the fact that some of the symbols associated with this annual celebration remind me of my dad. This holiday doesn’t conjure memories of my father as a grand romantic, but rather he always used to say that cards and flowers, staples of Valentine’s Day, were a waste of money. He was no fan of cards and flowers as gifts because they don’t last. Flowers are destined for the composter once they begin to wilt and die, and cards typically find themselves in the recycling bin after a week or so. I used to agree with my dad. Why spend money on something that was destined for the trash? My opinion has since changed. I have now come to

appreciate gifts for the impact they have, not they’re cost, size or longevity. If someone has love for a particular flower, why wouldn’t you show your affection for them with a lovely bouquet? Similarly, if you are able to find a card that perfectly describes your feelings for a loved one, is it not better to spend the $3.99 than leave those words unsaid? In my opinion, all great gifts are born from thought and effort. Some of the best gifts I’ve been given have been in the form of cards. I don’t think there is any greater gift than knowing that you have made a difference in the lives of those you love. Some of these cards have been homemade, while others have been store bought. I too have spent what seems like hours hunting for the perfect cards for family and friends. When you

get that heart felt laugh or a slight tear, you know you’ve hit the mark. Those are the cards that don’t make their way to the recycle bin, but instead are cherished in a special drawer or memory box. I’m now of the opinion that all gifts can be a waste of money if there is no thought behind them. Flowers, jewelry, candies, etc. can all be wasted on someone who doesn’t enjoy them. People often laugh at stories of the guy who buys something like a snow blower for their wife as a birthday or anniversary gift. Not this girl. If said wife has been complaining about how much time and effort it takes to shovel the driveway, I’d be touched that my husband filed that piece of information away and bought me something that will make life easier. If the thought is there, anything can make a great gift.

It’s not so bad having a cat, even the one I got Craig's Comment By Craig Bakay editorial@theheritageemc.ca

EMC Column — it’s a sunny Sunday afternoon in Sharbot Lake and the cat is sleeping peacefully on the back of the couch. There’s a wide sunbeam coming in through the window and cats being cats, apparently this beam is just too tempting to resist. It’s been awhile since I was last owned by a cat. And this one wasn’t really a ‘planned’ adoption. You see, my darling daughter moved in to a residence at school in Toronto that didn’t allow cats.

So, as any conscientious dad (who’s putty in his little girl’s hands) would do, I offered to look after her cat while she was at school. School was over a year and a half ago and the cat is still here. It’s starting to look suspiciously like I have a cat again. I’d kind of become a dog person after years with my beloved huskies. (When you have huskies you don’t have cats, nor does the most of the neighbourhood, as it turns out.) But the idea of having a cat around wasn’t a bad one. I’ve had a number of feline friends that were, if nothing else, companionship. At least two of them were among the best friends I’ve ever had. So, I guess I was somewhat looking forward to having Mona join the household for awhile. Mona (Lisa, a brownish tiger-stripe tabby with

a white chin and bib) spent her first three weeks in Sharbot Lake under the bed where my daughter sleeps when she’s here, venturing out only for meals and to use the litter box. Attempts to get close to her were met with hisses, paw swipes and bites when my fingers got too close. Turns out, Mona is a mean one and tough as nails. But eventually, she started coming out more and more. There was a scratch behind the ears here, a bit of mouse-on-a-string play there, and pretty soon she’d managed to take over the entire house. Welcome to Monaland. It’s not so bad though. I’ve clued into her warnings that she does not want to be bothered and stocked up on Bactine and Band-Aids. I’ve gotten used to cat toys everywhere and the fact that

the red mouse is just going to turn up in all sorts of places like shoes and coffee cups. But, she curls up around my feet at bedtime and purrs away. I’ve always felt comforted by purring cats, even ones that can go ballistic at any moment. Another thing I have to give the cat is that mouse problem from when I first moved in seems to have disappeared. It took Mona awhile to get the hang of mousing— for a while there I was finding kitty kibble in pitchers and things. But now that she has, she seems only too happy to display her prowess to any mouse stupid enough to enter her house. And there haven’t been many of those lately. Oh, oh, Her Majesty waking up now and her bowl is empty. I have to go.

In Our Opinion

The importance of exercise during a long, cold winter EMC Editorial – It can be difficult to get motivated in the winter. Between the blistering cold and the interminable darkness, most people prefer to stay indoors and curl up by the fireplace or under the covers. But there are risks associated with this seasonal hibernation, namely because it’s bad for our health. A 2007 study by researchers at McMaster University, published in the Canadian Journal of Public Health, found that inactivity levels rise amongst Canadians in the winter months, and that leisure-time physical activity is significantly more likely in the summer than in the winter. That may not come as a surprise to most people, but the consequences of this behaviour can be serious. Inactivity can lead to obesity and heart disease, and one of the best ways to keep our hearts healthy is through exercise, even when we’re not feeling motivated. There’s no doubt that our climate makes exercising more difficult during winter. A peaceful walk or run outside becomes a nerve-wracking attempt to avoid black ice or a splash of slush from a passing truck. Outdoor fields and courts are covered in snow, and gyms can be expensive and intimidating. Here in Kingston, we’re lucky to have a variety of winter activity options, including skating at Market Square or one of the many other outdoor rinks, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing at Little Cataraqui Creek Conservation Area, and tobogganing at Fort Henry Hill (you may slide down, but you have to walk up). There are also lots of ways to work out in the privacy of your own home, without expensive exercise equipment. Fitness magazines include lots of workouts that get your heart rate up and your muscles moving. And many of the most popular home workout videos are available on DVD or even YouTube, a perfect option when we can’t bear to drag ourselves out into the cold. Getting physical activity in the winter is also better when it’s a family affair. After all, it’s hard to expect kids to get outside and get some exercise if that’s not a part of their parents’ lifestyle. Recent studies have shown that children aren’t getting enough physical activity, and that needs to be remedied year-round. We can’t let winter be an excuse for our inactivity. Rather, we need to find things we enjoy doing even when it’s cold outside.

Valentine’s Day culprit makes Mary blush red Mary Cook’s Memories By Mary Cook

EMC Lifestyle - Mother had emptied the big white envelope onto the kitchen table. It had been crammed full with Valentines bought at the drug store in Renfrew. They were of the simplest kind, and each one had a little flap at the bottom that could be bent to allow the Valentine to stand on its own. And always, there was one larger Valentine, and much more elegant than the others, for the teacher. There was a great argument who would get the teacher card, until Mother settled the issue by having the whole five of us signing the back of it. The entire packet wouldn’t

have cost Mother more than a quarter! Valentine’s Day at the Northcote School was something special. There was always a cake brought by Miss Crosby, we wore our next-to-Sunday best clothes, and Miss Crosby crammed an entire day’s lessons into the morning, so that the afternoon could be given over to the celebration of Valentine’s Day. That year, when I was about six-years-old, and still one of the youngest at the Northcote School, I remember Valentine’s Day as if it were yesterday. The teacher always chose someone to be the mailman, and

as usual bad Marguirite was given the job. Miss Crosby had taken the lid off the big white mail box, and handed Marguirite about five cards at a time. It wasn’t unusual to get a dozen or more Valentines that day. Most of them were signed by the sender, but some just had “from Guess Who” on them. These could be funny, or in some cases with the pupils in Senior Fourth, they bore words that bordered on romance. Of course, these were never signed! And I could see my sister Audrey and her friends look around the room, giggle, and try to guess who the sender was. Yes, there was great mystery abounding on Valentine’s Day at the Northcote School. My little friends Joyce and Velma, of course, had cards for me, signed “friends forever” which gladdened my heart. And then there was one card, the

picture of which is as vivid in my mind today, as it was back then in the ‘30s. In itself, it wasn’t out of the ordinary. There was a picture of a little girl, and whoever sent it to me had taken a red crayon and coloured on masses of tangled red curls. They completely covered her head, and cascaded down over her shoulders. She was quite a mess. Of course, I had flaming red hair! There was enough space left at the bottom for the sender to print “I hate red hair!” That was bad enough...bad enough to turn my face crimson, and I quickly scanned the room to see who could be the culprit. There was no sign of recognition. I turned the card over, and there in bold printing, with the same red crayon, were the words, “unless it’s on a cat!” Who could have done

such a dastardly deed? Cecil! I just knew it had to be Cecil! But could it be? After all, most of the Briscos had flaming red hair, too. But Cecil was clever enough to know that would throw me off. Yes, it had to be Cecil! And there he sat, the picture of innocence. He was on such good behaviour that day, that I questioned if he, in fact, did send me the hateful card. He didn’t even crack his toes in his gum rubbers, or wiggled his ears, one at a time, when Miss Crosby wasn’t looking. No, it couldn’t have been Cecil. After we had all been given a piece of the Valentine cake, we were ordered to wipe off our desks. Heaven forbid that there would a crumb left for the mice who came out of the woodwork every night! Joyce and I were given the job of sweeping up the crumbs, and as we worked

What’s Happening

our way up and down the aisles, she with the dustpan and me with the broom, just as I was about to put the broom under bad Marguirite’s desk, there was a stub of a bright red crayon! EDITOR’S NOTE: Many times Mary has been asked if the people she writes about really existed. As she says, some names, a very few, have been changed to protect the innocent. Others have graciously allowed her literary license to use their names in her stories. Such a person was Cecil, who Mary has written about for decades. With a heavy heart, Mary was informed on Feb. 5 that Cecil Brisco passed away that morning on the family farm at Northcote. Cecil’s family have agreed that he can still be very much a part of Mary’s memories of growing up during the Depression.

Kiwanis Music Festival celebrates its 40th year in Kingston EMC Correspondent

EMC Entertainment The Kiwanis Music Festival is gearing up once again, and this year they are happy to be celebrating their 40th anniversary in Kingston. The festival works each year to provide a friendly, mainly noncompetitive atmosphere where amateur performers of all ages can enjoy performing and hearing others perform, while at the same time gaining new artistic insights from experienced adjudicators. This year is no different and festival coordinator Christine Harvey hopes that people will join in the anniversary celebrations. “We are just trying to let everyone know about the anniversary and trying to get people to come out and celebrate this milestone with us. We’re also amping up our Highlights Concert and are fortunate to have Trevor Strong of the Arrogant Worms hosting that event for us. He is a name that will hopefully be more recognizable for young people and will draw them in. He has also done a lot for music in Canada so we are really happy to have him as our master of ceremonies for the Highlights Concert.” The festival will also be

showcasing its usual mix of talent. “We have our usual spread of guitar and piano, both junior and senior piano, and we have some cellos this year, quite a few more than we usually get. We also have singers and choirs. Unfortunately our choirs are down because of the teachers protest in the public school board, so as a result we don’t the same number of choirs or bands that we usually see, but some have still been able to come out. We also have strings and winds and a drama entry this year, which is a first for us,” explained Harvey, who has a strong background in drama and hopes to expand the drama category of the festival in years to come. All of the festival events are free, which makes it even easier for people to come check them out. “I would really encourage people to come out and see the amazing events if they can. In any division, based on what you enjoy, there are some really amazing acts to check out. We really love to have an audience and if people aren’t sure what to come out and see they can come to the Highlights Concert, which is basically the best of what we saw throughout the festival and that event is also free, but we do appreciate

donations,” Harvey said. The festival runs from Feb. 19 until March 1. Events are held at various locations throughout the city. The Highlights Con-

cert will be held at Sydenham Street United Church on March 6 at 7:30 p.m. “It’s a really great event for musicians and spectators. There is a lot of talent

in the community and this is an opportunity to recognize some of that talent and the festival allows them to perform in front of an audience, which is so great and

important,” said Harvey. For more information about the festival and for a complete schedule of events go to www.kiwanismusic.ca.

Brasswerks to play Sydenham United in first concert of 2013 By Kelly Reid

EMC Correspondent

EMC Entertainment - For music lovers in Kingston, there are a great number of options for taking in live acts. There is Kingston Symphony performances, celebrity acts at the K-Rock Centre, local bands at any number of watering holes, musical theatre at the Grand, and a whole host of other options. Yet Brasswerks, an ensemble of brass and percussion instruments, is one of the only ways in town to really experience the warm and lively sound of a brass band. Though they may be a small group of 15, this assemblage has real crowdpleasing appeal. Tomorrow night, they take the stage at Sydenham United Church for their first concert of 2013. If you love music, don’t miss out. “It’s easy to listen to, and fun,” says Catherine Redsell, a French horn player in Brasswerks, of what brass ensemble music is all about. The group plays a wide variety of genres and loves to perform an eclectic mix at their concerts. This is what

excites Redsell. “We feel that music should be accessible to everybody,” she continues, which explains why audience members can expect to hear everything from Burt Bacharach to Beethoven. Tomorrow, on the heels of Valentine’s Day, their repertoire will include a cheeky mix of Latin tangos and romantic movie scores, and even some numbers especially for kids. The group has been playing together for eight years, with almost all of the original members still performing. “A number of us got together that wanted something exciting,” says Redsell of the group’s inception. John Palmer, the ensemble’s founder, collected the musicians by looking for people that were passionate about brass music. “The sound of brass is always thrilling. We’re not stuck with silly violins,” Redsell laughs. Yet her jest does speak to a larger truth about how brass is often overlooked or under-featured. Especially among youth, brass instruments tend to be unfamil-

Brasswerks ensemble shows off their brass together. iar and not considered for study. Because of this gap in knowledge, Brasswerks regularly partners with local schools to do day camp demos of brass so that kids can become familiar with instruments like the euphonium, the French horn, and the trombone.

“It’s a very friendly, very warm group,” Redsell says of their community involvement. Tomorrow’s concert will be especially poignant for this tight-knit ensemble. In early January, first trombonist Bob Campbell unexpectedly

passed away. This will be their first concert without him since the group’s inception eight years ago. Amidst the love-centred repertoire, the group will pay tribute to Campbell during the concert. “He was a remarkable musician,” Redsell says.

Tickets to the Brasswerks concert are available at the door at Sydenham United Church. Family rate is $40, seniors $20, students $10, and adults $22. Concert begins at 7:30 p.m. For upcoming performances visit www. brasswerks.ca.

It’s impossible to overeat when you enjoy every bite

By Kate Kristiansen Columnist

EMC Lifestyle - In life one should enjoy the experience of food and mealtime. I am nourished by the simple act of cooking and I try to ensure each mealtime is dedicated to the savouring and celebration of food. I seek out good eating wherever possible. I lived overseas for several years in New Zealand and Australia. After returning home, I worked as a Marketing and Sales Manager for the K-Rock Centre and then more recently with Cirque du Soleil and DreamWorks live entertainment shows. As a Mom and an owner of a small business, cooking is my welcome release at the end of the day. My food manifesto is to dine always for the benefit of the experience. It’s impossible to overeat when you truly enjoy every bite (although sometimes I give it a good try). My creativity and passion for cooking surprised even myself. When I was a child, Mom requested my presence in the kitchen to learn all her baking secrets. She claims I often appeared frustrated, as she showed me how the pastry should feel and the secret to getting the temperature just right. Every holiday you would find me in the kitchen helping prepare for the season of visitors. We still continue this tradition today, and during the years when I lived overseas it was one of the things I missed most. So when did my disdain for cooking became a fierce passion? When I met hubby, I knew something would need to change, given my lack of skill and knowledge in the kitchen. I did not learn to cook because I felt this was the way to a man’s heart (although I do believe cooking is the way to everyone’s heart). In the early days,

it was my husband who won me over with his knowledge of cooking. He introduced me to many wildly tasty evenings in his kitchen. Ladies, I am sure you can all attest there is nothing more seductive than a man in an apron. And when what he created tasted just as good, well I was done for. Today, while my hubby is still a keen foodie, I am the main cook in our house. Food and the experience of cooking have become the way I show love. Without a place to carry out this ritual I feel like a gym junkie without my daily fitness class. Since those early years, my hubby and I have enjoyed many enjoyable days and evenings at the table. While there have been disasters as I learned the knack, I want to encourage as many as possible to also embrace the art of cooking. I am excited to share some of the crazy goings on in my kitchen

as I create new dishes from recipe books and recreate family favourites. I’ll also share some experiences from attending local area restaurants. Any good chef knows that a recipe has to be made your own, so my plan is to check out new cookbooks and maybe even spend time with some of our local chefs. To begin, here’s something to assist you all with your Valentine’s Day wooing. Many of you will be hidden away at some delicious restaurant, while others may be dining at home. Either way, why not charm your sweetie post dinner with a dreamy vintage chocolate recipe. Food should always be made with love, and what better way to show your beloved that he or she is the one. I must confess, while I like to cook, I am no baker. So, generally most of my cakes (not so secretly) come from a

box. But, I thought I would try to kick this cake-box habit! “Dreamy Chocolate Cake”

Cake ingredients: 2 cups granulated sugar 1-¾ cups of all-purpose flour ¾ cups of cocoa 1 1/2 tsp baking powder 1 ½ tsp of baking soda 1 tsp salt 2 eggs 1/2 cup of vegetable oil 1 cup of milk 2 tsp vanilla 1 cup of boiling water Cake cooking instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C). Grease and line cake pans with parchment paper or grease and dust with flour. In a large bowl, stir together sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add eggs, milk, oil and vanilla.

Beat on medium speed with an electric mixer for two minutes. Stir in boiling water. Pour batter evenly into prepared pans. Batter will be thin. Bake in oven for 30–35 minutes. One 13 x 9 inch cake pan: bake for 30–35 minutes* Two eight inch or nine inch round or square cake pans: Bake for 20-25minutes* * A fully baked cake springs back when touched in the centre and it also draws away from the side of the pan. Check before removing, as these timings are only a guideline depending how hot your oven is. When cake emerges from oven, allow to stand for 10 mins so it can settle. For sheet or layer cakes, invert onto a cake rack and peel off parchment paper. Frosting ingredients: 1/2 cup of butter

2/3 cup of cocoa 3 cups of powdered sugar 1/3 cup of milk 1 tsp of vanilla Frosting instructions:

Melt butter, stir in cocoa alternatively and add powdered sugar and milk. Beat with electric mixer for spreading consistency. Add small amounts of additional milk if needed. Stir in vanilla. Spread between layers, on top and sides of cake. You may also top with fresh flowers, strawberries, shaved almonds or whatever you enjoy most.

It can be a fairly magical evening,” added Kelly Guests that attend will enjoy the music of three DJs, including Kelly herself, and a special band. “We have a special little one-night-only slow dance band that is going to play a couple of covers for people to dance to in the middle of the evening,” said Kelly, and she encourages people to come check it out. “I think we rarely get a chance to meet people in this context and in this way. It is a great way to maybe talk to people you wouldn’t talk to normally and get to know them. It’s also a great way to spend Valentine’s

Day. It’s a way of making fun of these kinds of events, but also indulging in the fun that comes along with them.” Proceeds of the event go towards a local arts charity each year and this year Kelly and Perez have decided to donate to the Mouthy Storytelling series. “They bring storytellers in and hold these great events and we want to raise more funds for the series so we can get really great speakers to come out and pay for their travel costs and keep the nights going,” said Kelly. For tickets to the Valentine’s Day Slow Dance you can purchase them in advance at the Grad Club for $8 or at the door on Feb. 16 for $10. Doors open at 9 p.m.

professionals,” says Stepa of her hopes for the program. While at the museum, families are also encouraged to visit the Children’s Gallery, which is a safe place for families to talk about their bodies and their health. “Delivering education programs is one of the core functions of the Museum of Health Care,” Stepa is happy to say. Indeed, this educational program has so far proven both effective and enjoyable. Many children who have previously participated will be returning this year, she goes on. “That, to us, is the best seal of approval.” The Teddy Bear Hospital will be having two sessions on family day for children ages three to eight with an adult accompaniment. Card’s Bakery is also providing teddy bearshaped cookies for the participants. The cost is $5 per participant with no charge for adults. Pre-registration is required. To register, please call 613-5482491 or book online at museumofhealthcare.ca.

EMC Events - Valentine’s Day can be cheesy and feel forced, but it is also a great time to let loose and just have fun. What better way to do that than dancing? Laura Kelly and Vince Perez are proud to be hosting their annual Slow Dance on Feb. 16 at the Grad Club (162 Barrie St.), an event that will be full of fun and dancing. “It is an event that I have been running for the past four years with Vince. We do a couple events around town throughout the year. This year, the Grad Club offered us the venue so we are holding it there, but we’ve had it at a few different places over the years like the Renaissance and Modern Fuel art gallery,” Kelly explained. Perez and Kelly are passionate about contributing to the arts scene in Kingston, and hosting events that contribute to the arts. “ I’m a volunteer with CFRC and Vince works petty closely with Modern Fuel and we are always thinking of ways to get people together in the name of fun, and how to get people involved with music and arts in the city,” said Kelly. This is the fourth year for the Slow Dance party, an idea that originated out of a need for something new and fresh. “We both came up with the slow dance idea because we wanted something a little more interactive than just your average dance party. We wanted something with dance cards and designated dancers so that you can slow dance with partners in a way that we so rarely get an opportunity to, aside from proms and weddings. It’s a new and different way to interact with people,” said Kelly. Whether you are single or attached, both are invited to the dance party. There will also be designated dancers circling making sure that nobody goes without a partner. “Because of the vibe we

EMC Events-For children, a visit to the doctor can often be a confusing and frightening event. Irrational fears of needles and blood usually begin from a young age and, unless something changes, can continue into adulthood. Thankfully, Kingston’s Museum of Health Care has an excellent initiative to give kids knowledge about the medical field and dispel their fear of doctors. This program is the annual Teddy Bear Hospital, which is now in its third year. This event will be held on Family Day between 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. The Teddy Bear Hospital, which runs out of the museum, was created by former program director Catherine Toews. “It turned out to be so popular,” says current director Jenny Stepa, “We decided to turn it into an annual event.” During the sessions, children are encouraged to bring their favorite teddy bear or stuffed

creature to visit the teddy bear doctors. These medical professionals will examine the toys and prescribe treatment. “The stuffed toy becomes the patient and the child acts as its caretaker. With your teddy bear, everything feels a little safer,” continues Stepa. Children learn about why we go to the doctor, how sometimes we go for checkups and sometimes we go when we are sick. They also learn about different instruments such as stethoscopes and thermometers, as well as the difference between doctors, nurses, and technicians. The sessions are designed to make a visit to the doctor feel familiar and safe rather than frightening. In addition to the information sessions, the children also get to participate in lots of fun activities such as crafting reflective physician head bands, and designing a “feel better room.” “We’d like the children who attend to see that doctors and nurses are here to help us, and that maybe when they grow up they’d like to become medical

How? By taking action to reduce the risk factors that are within your control. That means factors like high blood pressure, eating an unhealthy diet, being physically inactive, smoking or being overweight. Nine out of Ten people have at least one risk factor and 40% have three or more. The Heart and Stroke Foundation website (www. heartandstroke.ca <http://www.heartandstroke. ca> ) is full of information and tools to help Canadians understand their individual risk factors and start making changes. For example, the newly updated Heart&Stroke Healthy Weight Action Plan is a personalized, step-by-step online program that helps you assess your current eating and activity habits, setting goals and taking steps to reach and maintain a healthy weight. Another way Canadians can Make Death Wait is by donating to the Heart and Stroke Foundation during the annual Heart Month campaign this month. Every donation to the Heart and Stroke Foundation supports investment in life-giving research, advocacy, health promotion and educational programs. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all aimed at reducing the impact of heart disease and stroke, while helping to give Canadians longer, fuller lives. Please give generously when a Heart and Stroke volunteer knocks on your door this month. You can also support online at www.heartandstroke. ca/HELP or by calling 613-384-2871

Changes for a functioning house Extending Space

By Merola Tahamtan merolatahamtandesigns@live.ca

EMC Lifestyle – This week’s House and Home column is a follow up to last week’s column about determining your home’s value and formulating what works best in your home. Once you have made an initial assessment of your home, you can analyze your findings and determine what level of change is required. Look over your answers and findings from other family members and see if there is a particular pattern to the responses. If many of your concerns have to do with storage and ease with which various functions can be carried out, then the solution may be re-planning or reorganizing your space. If you are essentially just short on space, a conversion or an addition may be the solution. If its spatial quality, you may want to consider some alterations in your home. If your problem is a fundamental lack of efficiency in any or all of your home system’s function,

Short of moving, one can add more space to a home by enlarging current rooms, adding new room(s) or creating a new storey. The direct benefits of gaining more space in a home are easy to imagine, but the process itself is quite involved. First, you must get permission under local building codes or zoning regulations. Increasing the square footage of your home will affect the structure and stability of your home so it’s important to seek professional guidance. Adding space may affect the external appearance of your home as well and possibly decrease usable garden area. It will also affect the value of your property. Your decision to add square footage to your home ultimately comes down to whether you are better off staying put or moving. Changing Space

For a development in a space, a fundamental change in light, volume and scale, you will need to alter

be carried out by a professional and early in the course of alterations. Reorganization

Some of the most immediate changes you can make to your home have to do with its organization. A new layout can conjure space from thin air and transform confused and irritating daily routines into models of clock-like efficiency. Many of the solutions are startlingly simple. Many of us are surprisingly conventional when it comes to assigning uses to rooms. Yet we should break away from traditional arrangements and in favour of much more useful spaces. Provided relocation doesn’t involve moving services around, this is one of the simplest changes you can make. For example, why does the largest bedroom have to be the master bedroom, when it is the children who could benefit from extra floor space? Home organization naturally has a great deal to do with how and where things are kept. As your possessions accumulate, storage facilities often lag behind until confusion threatens to take over. Well-planned storage that is easily accessible is vital for a smoothrunning household and rep-

Changing Systems

The systems that serve your home- its heating, cooling, electricity, sewage and ventilation—are all vital to one’s health and comfort. Deficient or faulty systems are inconvenient, uneconomical and can even pose a real physical danger to yourself or your home. Re-planning these systems to suit new spatial arrangements varies in complexity and expense, and needs to

The most superficial level of change, but not the least important, is redecoration. You won’t make your home more structurally sound by giving it a fresh coat of paint, but you will make it more cheerful. Decorating is about enhancing what you have, bringing its good features into focus, making the most of natural light and views, and creating a sense of harmony and comfort. It’s important to choose the right finishes based on their function and the wear and tear they will receive. Many of the options that fall into this category are relatively inexpensive and painless to carry out, involving far less disruption than building work or major repair.

The physical condition of your home is of prime importance. Major structural faults will require immediate action and you may need to seek professional help to determine the precise nature of the problem and to help you to put it right. Buildings are attacked by a range of adverse factors from land settling and erosions to dry rot and pest infestation. The symptoms may not always be obvious, but unexplained cracking, damp patches, persistent musty smells, sudden leaks, uneven floors and bulging plasterwork are all signs that something is going wrong somewhere. You should also allow money in your budget and time in your schedule for minor repairs and upkeep. Poor surfaces aren’t always symptomatic of underlying decay, but they effectively counteract any improvements you make elsewhere; painting cracked or veined plasterwork will give it a superficial freshness but won’t disguise the basic problem and may end up looking even worse. Keeping on top of small problems as they come up will dramatically lessen the risk

the basic framework in your home: create openings, move walls, erect partitions or change levels. The idea of this undertaking fills most people with dread, which is understandably given the horror stories that survivors of these types of home improvements like to tell. If you properly prepare yourself ahead of time and are thoroughly acquainted with the pitfalls, you are less likely to fall into them. A good deal of the complexity and, therefore, expense of this work hinges on whether the alterations are structural or not. You will need an architect or engineer to tell you which is which. Some alterations will require approval from the local building department, and for most you will need the service of a qualified builder.

Elizabeth Barnett: thank you Columnist mbergin@theemc.ca

EMC Lifestyle - A quiet school mistress named Elizabeth Barnett may have saved Kingston and all of Eastern Ontario through her heroic efforts in 1838. She definitely thwarted the likes of pirate Bill Johnston, not to mention that she prevented the sacking of Gananoque. And she’s largely unknown. The Arthur Child Heritage Museum has some big plans for Heritage Week (February 18−22), not the least of which is honoring Elizabeth Barnett. The week kicks off with the Town of Gananoque hosting a Family Day Chili Cook Off on February 18 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Town Park. Dreams In Motion dancers will provide entertainment for the event. Everyone can sample chili and vote for their favourite. There will be an obstacle race and other games, including a find-the-chilibean challenge. Chili beans, frozen in ice cubes, will be scattered throughout Town Park. The team that finds the most points collecting chili bean ice cubes will receive a family prize. The Arthur Child Heritage Museum is hosting events on two days. “On February 20, We’re doing a Victoria Tea from 1 to 3:30,” said Linda Mainse. “While it’s being served, our guests can enjoy a onewoman storytelling performance, Battlefield Petticoats: Women in the War of 1812. It will be narrated by writer snad storyteller Deborah Dunleavy. That fits nicely with the 1812 Bicentennial we’re focused on.” Mainse said that Dunleavy will bring to life the experiences, stories and challenges women faced

threatened British rule. Inspired by Canada’s William Lyon Mackenzie, militants in northern states wanted to liberate Canada from the British. A war council that included Mackenzie, pirate Bill Johnston, Rensselaer Van Rensselaer and several others met in Buffalo. They were hoping for assistance from Upper Canada Rebellion supporters working at Fort Henry in Kingston, which was a key hub for Upper Canada. Jefferson County rumbled with talk of Canadian freedom. On February 17, Patriots raided the Watertown arsenal. Hundreds of arms, along with ammuniton, were stolen. Provision and the arms ended up in Clayton (then called French Creek), New York near the home of Bill Johnston, which was also near General Van Rensselaer’s headquarters. The Patriots planned to base their attack from Hickory Island. The Rebellion may have fared better had Bill Johnston been in charge. He was noted for his competence and audacity. Sadly, Van Rensselaer was noted for, shall we say, a lack of temperance. While in Lafargeville, Barnett overheard a conversation outlining a planned attack on Gananoque. Barnett had developed a fondness for the Canadian people and by this point she’d become a citizen of Canada. And, like most Americans, she thought Canadian matters should best be dealt with by Canadians. In the middle of winter, on February 21, in a onehorse cutter, Barnett travelled to see for herself the encampments of Patriot preparations. “So she quickly took her leave,” said Mainse. “She got on her horse-drawn sleigh and came back across the ice to warn the town.” She slipped away and travelled several miles across frozen ice with the knowledge that Gananoque was about to be attacked. She informed Dr. Potter

He contacted Canadian authorities. Local men took up arms and couriers were dispatched to Kingston and Brockville to warn of possible attacks. The Leeds militia, the Brockville Rifle Company and members of the First Frontenac Troop of Cavalry rushed to Gananoque’s aid. Scouts were dispatched to lookout locations, including Grindstone Island in American territory. The Patriots had lost their advantage of surprise. They were also facing an armed militia, not an unarmed sleepy town. When the Patriots captured three Canadian spies, word of the

matter to Dr. Potter and he was the one who contacted the appropriate authorities with Barnett’s information. Elizabeth Barnett died in 1906. The story of her role was re-discovered after her death when someone found her diary. It’s never too late to offer thanks. What better time to recognize and honour this brave woman than during Heritage Week. Heritage Week Locations in Gananoque: Town Park, King Street; Arthur Child Heritage Museum,125 Water Street.

militarized defense situation in Gananoque defeated the morale on the American side. The Patriot forces left Hickory Island and retreated. The attack disintegrated. All of this, thanks to a lone woman who crossed a vast expanse of frozen water at the height of winter. Later in 1838, Elizabeth Barnett married Warren Fairman, originally from Howe Island. Fairman built a wagon and blacksmith shop near Gananoque. They had 11 children and Elizabeth spent the rest of her life in Gananoque. Barnett was never recognized or thanked, probably because she reported the

Phone 613-382-2535 to save your spot. On February 21, there’s Elizabeth Barnett Day and a Court Whist Tournament and Tea from 1 to 3:30 p.m. at the Arthur Child Heritage Centre. “First there’s sweets and tea, then the card players have at it for two hours,” said Mainse. “Whist is an old card game.” Whist is a classic English trick-taking card game that was popular in the 18th and 19th centuries. It evolved from the 16th century games of trump and ruff. If you’d like to learn more about Whist, visit www.whist-cardgame.com. Mainse explained that February 21was designated as Elizabeth Barnett Day by Gananoque Town Council in 1996. “It’s fortuitous that it falls within Heritage Wreek, which didn’t even exist in 1996,” said Mainse. “Elizabeth Barnett was like Gananoque’s Laura Secord,” she said. “She was instrumental in protecting Gananoque in the late 1830s during the Patriots War.” Mainse explained that Barnett was a Gananoque school mistress. Born in Stone Mills, New York, she came to Canada in 1836 at the encouragement of her brother, who had moved to Gananoque. Barnett liked Canada and decided to stay, even when her brother returned to the USA. Barnett boarded at the home of Dr. William Potter, a prominent physician of the day. In February1838, Barnett visited relatives in Lafargeville in Jefferson County in February 1838. It was a time of schemes and threats of war. The American Patriot movement arose in support of the 1837 Rebellions in Upper and Lower Canada. The organization

Punk’s fairy godmother brings her art to Canada

Columnist mbergin@theemc.ca

EMC Entertainment Only Patti Smith should cover a Rolling Stones’ song. Same goes for the Who’s My Generation, Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit or Them’s Gloria. No one else can capture the original soul of the sound. In 2007, during her induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, after dedicating the song to her late husband, Fred (Sonic) Smith, she performed Gimme Shelter. Smith is one of the most influential artists in the history of rock music. Her first album, Horses (1975) is often cited as one of the greatest recordings in music history. The poet and fairy godmother of punk led a movement. Not intentionally. A magnet doesn’t intend to attract iron. Smith changed the landscape for the female performer and opened the doors for the likes of Siouxsie Sioux, Nina Hagen and Lady Gaga. After Smith, women could exude passion, frothy sexuality, without being a sex object. Her first years were spent on Chicago’s south side. Her working-class parents moved to New Jersey in 1956 when Smith was 9 years old. Smith’s autobiography, Just Kids, is a raw and honest

lines in a boring monotone were aghast. But most were enthralled. Smith put heart, soul and guts into poetry. Everyone wanted her to do poetry readings. Sam Shepherd wanted to write a play with her. She became New York’s new “it” girl. She was about to become a rock queen. Smith preceded the Ramones, Sex Pistols and the Clash. Smith’s guitarist was the first to use the term “garage-punk” to describe a style of music. Smith became a prototype in the emerging punk scene, which in the early days in New York was often a gathering of young poets and performance artists. In the spring of 1971, Smith performed in a one-off show at CBGB music club (which would soon become the epicenter of the punk scene). The reaction to her performance was intense. She was immediately booked for a seven week residency. Word spread. Members of New York’s influential art scene descended on the club. The likes of William Burroughs, Andy Warhol and Allen Ginsberg came to pay homage to this poet/musician extraordinaire. Smith saw that rock bands had become business ventures with the audience as spectators. Commercial bands like Aerosmith strutted above the crowd. They were mere spectacles, separate from the people. Rock and Roll was becoming a dead art form. Smith re-lit the spark. She wanted to “put rock ‘n’ roll back in the hands of the people.” Smith had everything that

other rock musicians of her era lacked. Former Velvet Underground front man Lou Reed took notice and brought Smith to the attention of Clive Davis who signed Smith to Arista Records with a $750,000 advance. Smith was hugely successful, despite almost no commercial radio airplay. Her biggest hit, Because the Night, co-written with Bruce Springsteen, was an exception to the rule. As fast as Smith had hit the New York music scene, she disappeared in 1979. Smith wasn’t going to become a caricature. She moved to Detroit with Fred Smith (of the band MC5). They married in 1980 and, aside from one album in 1988, Smith immersed herself in domestic life to raise two children, Jackson (b. 1982) and Jesse (b. 1987). Tragedy struck like dominos, starting with Robert Mapplethorpe’s death in 1989 and culminating with the death of Smith’s husband and brother within weeks of each other in 1994. As a teen, art and music had been Smith’s salvation. She turned back to them and returned to New York City where she worked with the likes of John Cale and Jeff Buckley, the ethereal singer

who made Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah famous. A new and mature Smith was back on the music scene. I saw Smith perform a couple of years ago at the Beacon Theatre in New York, in a tribute concert to John Lennon, two blocks from where the ex-Beatle was murdered. Pure brilliance, yet humble. No pretense. Smith walked on stage and, before doing some Lennon songs, read from Jack Kerouac, then, on hands and knees, crawled to the audience. At 66, Smith can still do performance art with the best of them. We sometimes forget that Smith was an artist and photographer long before she became a rock musician. These days she’s returned to what she calls pure photography, i.e., photography using only available light, no flash. An upcoming Art Gallery of Ontario exhibit, “Patti Smith: Camera Solo,” is the first showing of Smith’s work in Canada. The presentation highlights the connections between Smith’s photography and her interest in poetry and literature. The AGO exhibit includes more than 70 of Smith’s photographic works, objets

and film. The objets include a stone from the river where Virginia Woolf drowned and Pope Benedict XV’s slippers. Her black and white photos, shot on her vintage Polaroid Land 250 camera (also on exhibit) include images of her children, Victor Hugo’s bed, Rudolf Nureyev’s slippers and her father’s tea cup. As for the pope’s slippers, AGO assistant curator of photography, Sophie Hackett, said Smith bought them at a monastery. Benedict XV was called “The Pope of Peace” prior to the First World War and that’s why Smith, a pacifist, wanted the slippers. Smith also finds great inspiration in Joan of Arc’s story. Benedict XV canonized Joan of Arc as a saint in 1920. Smith’s life and work is a spiritual quest. This current exhibit reflects that journey. Not only is her work coming to Canada, so is Smith. She’ll be performing music and reading her poetry at AGO on March 7 with shows at 7:30 p.m. and 9:45 p.m. Patti Smith: Camera Solo runs through May 19.

self-exposure. Smith didn’t follow the usual teenage path. At 16, she discovered French poet Arthur Rimbaud. “I had found solace in Arthur Rimbaud,” Smith wrote in Just Kids. “Rimbaud held the keys to a mystical language that I devoured even as I could not fully decipher it.” After high school, she attended Glassboro State Teachers College. I chuckle at the thought. In a world where education too often means teaching children what to think rather than how to think, Smith was doomed. She insisted on discarding traditional curricula in order to focus on obscure and experimental artists. You can guess the spasms that caused for bureaucratic administrators. Smith didn’t graduate. In July 1967, Smith moved to New York City. That same month, she met a soul mate, Robert Mapplethorpe, who would encouraged her poetry, art, photography and music. In 1969, Smith spent three months in Paris. She wanted to absorb the land and spirit of Arthur Rimbaud. When she returned to New York, she moved into Hotel Chelsea with Mapplethorpe. The place was affordable and attracted artists. There, Smith found kindred spirits like Sandy Daley, Salvador Dali and Allen Ginsberg. In February 1971, Smith gave her first public reading of her poetry, with guitar accompaniment by Lenny Kaye, who continued to perform with her for years. There were some detractors. Those who think poetry requires a motionless reciting

EMC news-Family, friends and neighbours joined over 200 Ducks Unlimited members for the presentation of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medals to two of their own. Rick Robb and Wolfe Island’s Dr. George Merry were recipients for their contributions to conservation, and their work with Ducks Unlimited Canada. The Jubilee Medal Presentation followed an Eastern Region Ducks Unlimited-Canada (DUC) Volunteer Workshop and Appreciation Day in Kingston. with a reception at the end of the day held in their honour. The two recipients are among the thirty DUC members from across the country chosen to receive a the Jubilee medal In his remarks prior to the medal presentation Jamie Fortune, DUC Chief Operat-

ing Officer, spoke of DUC’s pride at receiving a call from the Governor General’s Office suggesting that the organization submit names for the medal. “We are delighted to have George and Rick, two people from the area, chosen to receive the medal, both who share a passion for the outdoors and play key roles in the organization, which obviously means a lot to you.” Gary Down, DUC-Oshawa, went on to outline the accomplishments of Dr. Merry’s 32 year membership with DUC, as a leader in many areas of the organization (leadership, advice, vision, and generous land donor. And those of Rick Robb, a DU worker dedicated to youth programs and the objectives of the organization. “Both humble and generous, both with amazing ability in creating strong interpersonal relationships between staff and volunteers and giving both

work and volunteer hours”. Interesting to note that following the presentation of the medals by Mr. Down, and the pinning of them by Greg Weeks, Robb and George both acknowledged that neither “had ever received a medal before,” noting instead in their ‘thank you’s the accomplishment of families in the medal category. Dr. Merry thanked this family for their support, and especially his wife Catherine, for “putting up with smelly dogs, bird feathers mud and more banquet tickets than one can imagine”. Harkening back to his childhood, he remembered telling his mom when he brought in the milk bottles and put them in the fridge, and his Mom saying ‘So… you want a medal’. “She would have loved this,” he said. In his gracious thank you, George also acknowledged fellow medal recipient Rick Rob for

his tireless years of work for wetland conservation. Rick Robb, in his thanks to family and friends, acknowledged DU as one big group, one big family, and his ongoing commitment to it. He was obviously overwhelmed at being chosen for the medal. Speeches over, thanks conveyed, the reception continued, along with picture taking and the cutting of a 75 th Anniversary cake. Presentations of the Queen’s Diamond (60 year) Jubilee Medals, coinsided with Ducks Unlimited, founded in 1938, celebrating it 75th Anniversary, “ of conserving critical wetlands including marshes and ponds.

“It’s wonderful. People have really stepped forward and embraces this,” Says Giarda. Giarda, along with managing director Michael Sheppard, are optimistic about where Art Zoo can go in the future. Both of them would love to see it become an annual event. “It’s become a labour of love,” Giarda goes on. “I think the best compliment we can get at the end

EMC Events - This holiday Monday, the City of Kingston’s Cultural Services department will be rolling out its first ever Art Zoo at the Portsmouth Olympic Harbour. This exciting family-friendly event will bring together artists, vendors, kids and parents from all over Kingston. The idea for Art Zoo has been several months in the making, after a series of workshops run by the city proved immensely successful. “We’re really creating everything from the bottom up,” says Bob Giarda, the communications officer for Cultural Services. The concept came about when Giarda and others realized that Family Day had many recreational events happening outdoors, but lacked any arts-centred functions. “We thought it would be just a small event, but we are expecting it to be much larger than we anticipated,” Giarda says. So far, there has been a lot of buzz about Art Zoo. Many of the participating artists are from Kingston, but there

materials to do so. There will also be workshops for 3-D painting and visual art. For those that prefer being in the audience, Art Zoo will also be holding a casual story time and reading room. If you don’t prefer to structure your day around the workshops, try stopping in at one of six creation stations. These casual drop-in areas will be hosting button making, sock puppets, face painting, and “Build Your Own Water Pump,” just to name a few. “It’s not just about art, we

will be some celebrated outof-towners as well. For instance, Unity Charity will be visiting from Toronto. This is a group that engages youth through arts-based school and community programs to help them positively express stress and develop skills for success. At Art Zoo, Unity Charity will be doing a performance as well as running a breakdancing workshop. There will be lots of other workshops for others as well. “Shelters,” for example, will have kids building tents and lean-tos while using natural

HOROSCOPES ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, be on your best behavior this week. Acquaintances both new and established will have their eyes on you, and it is essential that you make a good impression.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, although you may not be able to see into the future, you can plan for what may happen in the next few days. Now is the perfect time to check in with friends. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, get all of your work ducks in a row because you want to ensure you are up for the next promotion or pay increase. Now could be the time to make work your top priority. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 You may find that you have an easy time of reading people this week, Cancer. Use this trait to your advantage to find out how certain people feel about your new ideas. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, don’t get too excited when things seem out of whack this week. Keep calm and find out how you can set things on the right course. Lead by example, and others will follow. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, try not to participate in any new activities this week. You are already over-extended. Clear your to-do lists before you take on any other responsibilities. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Show others how good their lives can be if they just follow a little of your own advice and take cues from what you have done already, Libra. Expect a few converts. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, you may be more focused on your fantasies and dream life than what is going on in your real life for the next few days. Just don’t wander around in a fog for too long. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, it may be hard to concentrate this week, especially with so many ideas floating around in your head. But do your best to stay focused. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricron, lend a helping hand when you see an opportunity to do so. Donate your time to someone in need or help a friend or family member complete a project. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, clarify your needs and wants. Until you can delineate between these factors you may be spending unnecessarily, which is not what your budget needs. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, it may take a few days for you to handle things, but don’t let that dissuade you from trying. Set your own timetable.
