EMC News – After one year of waiting, Kingston has finally received the green light from the province to proceed with construction of a third bridge crossing over the Cataraqui River. Ontario Environment Minister Jim Bradley formally signed off on the city’s $1.9 million environmental assessment after three outstanding appeals were denied. “With this decision having been made, the City of Kingston can now proceed with the Project, subject to any other permits or approvals required,” Bradley wrote in a June 20 letter to the city. The Minister’s Order says Kingston has demonstrated the need for a 1.1 kilometre third crossing between John Counter Boulevard and Gore Road for the “betterment” of residents. There were four challenges against the city’s environmental study. One was withdrawn, leaving three others to pursue an appeal questioning the bridge’s need, design and impact. When city officials could not satisfy their concerns, the appeals landed in the minister’s lap for a final decision. The Mohawk Nations Council of Chiefs First Nations Group was one of the challengers. The Mohawks opposed the project based on numerous concerns, including; number of support piers in the riverbed, winter waste runoff into the river, impact of dredging the river, noise reverberation caused by bridge traffic and bridge lighting at night. The Mohawks also pushed for several changes during the building phase; incorporating natural high performance materials to make the bridge more attractive, further justification to support a bridge design to accommodate 4-lanes, accelerated bridge construction techniques to minimize the environment impact and a bridge design that should incorporate its own renewable energy sources. On each point, the minister sides with city officials who promise to do their best to minimize the construction and environmental impacts. “I am satisfied that the issues and concerns have been addressed by the work done to date by the city, or will be addressed in future work that is required to be carried out,” wrote Bradley to Paul Williams of the Grand River Territory. However, Bradley also attached a few conditions the city must follow before

construction begins. He wants the city to contact the local MOE office to consult on dredging, construction protocols, mitigation measures and monitoring measures and to follow any directions provided by ministry staff. Failure to do so, he warned, will result in prosecution. Ken Linseman, a former city engineer and public works commissioner, also filed an objection to the bridge study. His appeal was based largely on the negative social impact on neighbourhoods on either side of the bridge landing points, and his belief that existing crossings at Highway 401 and the LaSalle Causeway can handle future traffic demands. Those assertions were also denied by the minister. Bradley agrees with city officials who say if shortcutting through neighbourhoods, including Point St. Mark, becomes a problem then various measures can be implemented such as speed humps and other traffic calming measures, one-way street restrictions and turning restrictions. As far as using existing routes, the province says the causeway will soon approach traffic capacity of 1,880 to 2,000 vehicles per hour per lane. The city estimates that by 2019, causeway travel time delays are expected to increase by an average of 76 to 79 percent. “The current problems and deficiencies on the LaSalle Causeway Highway 2 corridor are expected to worsen in the future if left unaddressed,” Bradley noted. A third challenge from Bruce Todd, a local resident and retired transportation ministry traffic analyst, was rejected as well. Todd raised similar points that the city used outdated traffic flow counts and the causeway corridor is capable of handling future demands with signal and lane improvements. Bradley says the causeway is federallycontrolled and a third bridge would give motorists “another option.” The minister’s go-ahead Order will allow the city to proceed with further planning and land acquisition, but the bridge affordability and construction timetable remain a question mark. It’s estimated a third crossing will cost between $120 million and $196 million, and the city has not yet budgeted any funding. The approved environmental study has a 10 year shelf life for construction to begin, or the city would have to undertake the detailed environmental study all over again.

City opens wallet for affordable housing land purchase strategy By Bill Hutchins Reporter

EMC News – Buying land for affordable housing isn’t cheap. Kingston is ready to spend another $265,000 as part of a land assembly along Princess Street for future affordable housing, bringing the area’s total land acquisition price tag to nearly $1.5 million. In the latest move, the city has offered to purchase a commercial building at 1318 Princess Street, near Portsmouth Avenue, once it completes due diligence testing of the site. The concrete block building on 0.2 acres will be demolished if the purchase deal goes through. “Acquisition of the property at 1318 Princess Street would enhance the overall development potential of the site,” said a July 16 report to council by properties commissioner Denis Leger. The pending deal comes one year after the city paid $1.2 million for a much larger site next door, the 2.3 acre former Goodwill Thrift store property at 1316 Princess Street, from the Springer Group. The city’s purchase of the old

Goodwill land was part of a complex land deal between the city and the Springer Group. Council agreed to allow commercial zoning of land beside the Lowe’s home improvement store on Gardiners Road - for a potential big box store - if the Springer Group sold 1316 Princess Street to the city. The Goodwill site, next to townhouses run by Kingston Co-Operative Homes, has been largely vacant since a spectacular fire destroyed the building in the 1990s. The owner of 1318 Princess Street recently approached city officials about selling the land and, after an appraisal, both sides agreed to a purchase price of $240,000. It will cost the city another $25,000 to complete the site testing and land transfer fees. The money for both properties on Princess Street is coming out of a special $5 million land bank account that was created in 2012. Council will set aside one million dollars a year for five years to acquire suitable land for low cost housing. “There are sufficient funds available in the 2013 allocation to pay for the purchase price, acquisition costs

and demolition,” said Leger of the 1318 Princess Street deal. Councillors intend to combine 1316 and 1318 Princess Street into a single block of land for affordable housing development. But the construction timeline, type of housing, and who would operate it, are still under review. The Princess Street land assembly is part of the multi-million dollar municipal strategy to acquire land around Kingston to facilitate the development of affordable housing. In 2012, the city also tapped into its special land bank fund to pay one million dollars to buy a three-storey dormitory-style building at 7 Wright Crescent from the Congregation of Notre Dame. In addition to a $5 million land

purchase account, councillors set up a matching $5 million fund to provide capital grants for affordable housing construction. City officials say they can’t afford to acquire land and build affordable housing on their own without support from higher governments and developers, but the two $5 million funds will help facilitate housing – one of Kingston’s strategic priori-

ties. The municipal program has so far led to the actual construction of 37 affordable units, including a 27-unit subsidized rental building for seniors at 233 Queen Mary Road operated by Kingston Frontenac Housing Corporation. The city provided the land and waived development and building fees for the building that opened last summer.

Celebrate 75 years of modern music at Fort Henry By Hollie Pratt-Campbell hpratt-campbell@theemc.ca

R0012098838_0516

EMC Events - It’s not every day that the Kingston Symphony Orchestra plays a Bruce Springsteen song, but on the evening of Aug. 2, they will do just that – as well as songs by The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, U2 and more, performed in the open summer air at Fort Henry. They will be accompanied by many high-profile artists, including Toronto-based cabaret singer Patricia O’ Callaghan, Canadian tenor Christopher Dallo, and local rock singers Emily Fennell and Derrick Ballard. “One of the most fun events for the Kingston Symphony is the Fort Henry concert,” says conductor Glen Fast. “I think this is the 19th or 20th year in a row we’ve done it, and this year is really special because there are so

many wonderful artists. It’s going to just be a great show.” The theme of the show is 75 Years of Modern Music, and the songs will accordingly span the last seven decades, making their way up to the present day. “It’s music for everybody, all ages,” Fast says. “I think that as much as it’s an eclectic mix, it’s also a very nostalgic mix. We all grew up with Beatles and the next generation grew up with Bruce Springsteen, and so there’s a lot of powerful music. What I like about it is for each era, we’ve really picked the best tunes. It’s very cool.” Fast notes that for the Symphony, the biggest challenge has been getting together the arrangements of notes to hand out to the artists, as many of the songs they will be playing were not written for an orchestra.

“We found arrangements that really enhance the sound of a basic rock ‘n roll group,” he says. “In other words, you have a fantastic drummer and the singing rock guitar. But behind that we also have a full symphonic sound, which will be spectacular. For instance, Derek Ballard’s going to do the Bruce Springsteen tune, and he’s going to have tremendous energy and bounce

O’Callaghan played a similar concert at Fort Henry with the Kingston Symphony last year. “It was really fun,” she says. “Singing with an orchestra is always a thrill, but to sing in this huge, open air historical place with a really large audience [is truly amazing]. As my set was happening last year, the sun was setting and it was just very, very magical and memorable.” This year, O’Callaghan is singing a num-

ber of songs, including two Leonard Cohen pieces, one that was made famous by French singer Edith Piaf, an opera duet with Dallo, and the classic Disney tune When You Wish Upon A Star. “Vocally speaking. the opera duet will be the most challenging in terms of range and that kind of thing,” she explains. “It’s always a little bit terrible to stand up in front on a stage [with an entire orchestra] behind you, but it’s also such a thrill. So in that way it’s a challenge, but it’s also a fun challenge.” Event organizer David Finlay explains that the idea behind the show was to build on the success of last year’s event, which featured Patricia O’Callaghan, Leyona Boyd and Dan Hill, along with the Kingston Symphony. “Last year was so successful, so we thought, how do we change it up this year?” he says. “The idea was to use local people but bring different voices in every year to bring a different type of scenario in... We’re trying to break the

boundaries a bit of what we usually do in Kingston.” He notes that there couldn’t be a better location for this type of concert: “Looking over Lake Ontario is truly one of the most beautiful sites. I don’t work at Fort Henry, but I’ve always loved this venue. There’s something historical and magical about this place and we in Kingston should be playing music here as much as we can.”

Moving forward, Taylor would like to eventually start sourcing the wool she spins and dyes more locally. “It’s trickier because there seems to be a lot of alpaca farms around here, [which produce a coarser, less-desirable wool],” she says. “I’m going to have to find a balance of what people will want to knit with and what might be available.” She remarks that one way to

EMC Lifestyle - For Meriel Taylor, knitting is a way of life. “I don’t even remember learning how to knit, really,” she says. “I’ve always done it – my mom taught me [when I was a child].” Over the years, Taylor went through phases where she would knit a lot or not at all, depending on how busy her life was at the time. “Then, about four or five years ago, I really picked it up again and became quite obsessed about all things wool and fibre,” she explains. “From there I moved into spinning and from spinning I moved into dying.” Eventually, Taylor began selling yarn, which she personally handdyes. She named her business Anwyn Yarn, meaning “fair and lovely”, in honour of her Welsh background. Starting this summer, Taylor can be found spinning and knitting at Anwyn Yarn’s stall at the Memorial Centre Farmers’ Market. “I heard about the market because I was part of Kingston Barter,” she says. “We had a little booth up there last year. It’s just a neat, neat place. Everyone has been so welcoming and I love that there’s music there. Even in the pouring rain, people seem to have a good time.” Taylor explains that all the dyes she uses are completely natural, sourced only from plants and insects. While she does not sell the wool she spins, giving spinning demonstrations on-site is an important element of her market booth. “One thing I’ve found whenever I spin or knit in public is that kids are really drawn to it,” Taylor notes. “I’ve had so many adults say ‘oh you can just buy that at the store’, but kids want to know about the process of it.” In order to pass on these skills to both children and interested adults, Taylor is opening up a studio space this fall at the new community building co-op in Portsmouth Village, where she plans on both holding knitting workshops and lessons herself, and opening the space up to other community education projects. “The thing that I love about where it is in Portsmouth village is it’s accessible to Queen’s students and St. Lawrence College students,” she says. “I would love to be able to draw on that. [Knitting] is a thing that can enrich your life so much, but someone has to teach you. You need a place to go to have your mistakes fixed and things explained to you.” Taylor is excited to pass her passion for knitting onto others: “I think what appeals to me so much and what I love about knitting is just pulling loops,” she says. “All you’re ever doing is pulling a loop, but you just create these beautiful things when you do that.” She notes that she would also love to have others use the space to teach spinning, or any other craft/ skill they are passionate about. “We would really like to have the space as a community classroom,” Taylor explains.

aid tiered response program is to promote a faster response to patients with certain types of medical conditions, ( vital signs absent, unconscious patients, absence of breathing and motor vehicle accidents) by partnering with allied emergency service agencies.) “We are interested in helping out the Ambulance Service, not taking over but to be called in certain situations. Right now it is hit and miss because we are not in program, “ Hawkins said. The Fire Service would be called if the ambulance response is greater than 15 minutes and there is a real response time advantage. “We were more interested in knowing if you think it is fair for you to give your time to this. On Howe Island it’s different. All calls are over 15 minutes,” Mayor Doyle said. Chief Chesebrough said that if council chose to endorse the program Frontenac Islands would be consistent with departments in Frontenac, and Lennox and Addington, “ which makes it super for dispatch and ambulance service, while the program sets out response criteria and how to get started.” The agreement sets out the responsibilities of the township. “We already have 10 guys trained in this,” Hawkins added. Council passed a resolution to endorse the program. ( outlined in part 1 of the agenda posted on the Frontenac Islands website.)

Prior to that he had experience with the Nunavut Territorial Government working in several municipal leadership positions including in Iqaluit. Broadly travelled he has worked with international companies (auditing) and as an experienced accountant, and financial manager in building/development projects. “At the present time I am attempting to familiarize myself with the many areas the Township is involved in as well as its many areas of concern. Luhowy said. , “ In applying for the job, it seemed to me that Frontenac Islands naturally followed what I have been doing in the past in finance and in development as well. Bringing back financials to the township means we are not relying on other people for information and working more autonomously. “ Aware of certain concerns Luhowy noted that the township relies on the county to provide certain services. ” I think the role between them has to be clear. The county maybe steering one direction and the township steering in another.” he said noting the many township variables, including its different logistics and transportation needs, its changing demographics and opportunities for growth. “ I am looking forward to the many challenges of the job in the days ahead.” Luhowy plans to make his home on Wolfe Island.

imal but the costs to implement the results ( new equipment, towers etc ) could be very high, “ but as it is four townships, it might be okay.” Councillor Springgay wondered why this issue had suddenly come up. “Why have we not heard this before ? Is this something we can afford?” Mayor Doyle noted that there is Federal Gas Tax money available at the county to pay for a study. Chief Quinn believes the township should enter into the study since gaps in the radio communications system have been identified. “It is an opportunity to partner with the other municipalities to look at what is required across the county to have a sustainable county system.” Council received the report and request, from the Chiefs and Road Superintendant Leo Greenwood for the study and passed a resolution requesting that Frontenac County fund a Radio Communications study on behalf of the four lower tier townships. All four township councils will receive the same request ‘for support of a Radio Communications study.’ 3. Other business:1.

2. Radio Communications Study. In his presentation, Chief Quinn expressed the need for a “Radio Communication Study” to be undertaken on behalf of the 4 lower tier townships in Frontenac County. According to Quinn the current (emergency services) radio systems (tower sites, base and portable radios) are old and do not provide full coverage in each municipality with gaps and glitches in the system. “Municipalities are using a variety of radios and sites with varying rage levels, with dead zones, not compatible with other fire or roads departments. We have very real issues becoming more evident . We are looking for our council’s support for a propagation study.. We believe there are benefits to a (15-20 year) analysis across the county,” he said. “We have to interconnect.” The process Chief Quinn outlined would be that the five Fire Chiefs and the 5 Public Works managers meeting together will develop the criteria for the study, issue the RFP, review all submissions and award the contract for the study, (estimated cost: $25,000). They will ask Frontenac County to fund the study and receive the study’s analysis. Chief Chesebrough spoke of the benefits of a study for all 4 townships funded by the county. A discussion followed with Councillor Norris noting that the projected cost of the study is min-

Kingston City Council ramps up for busy, final year in office Bill Hutchins City Reporter editorial@theheritageemc.ca

EMC Editorial – In the summer, city council business tends to slow down. It’s common for councillors to meet only once a month through July and August. That said, the wheels of municipal policy continue to turn (whether those wheels run over someone/ something is another matter). So, here’s a summertime advance look at some of that issues that could dominate discussion in the final year of the council term. Casino Question It’s the one question I get asked the most: Do you think Kingston will get a casino? The answer depends on a lot of ‘ifs.’ If the OLG picks a casino operator, if there’s no snap provincial election, if the casino developer thinks he can make a bigger buck here, if there’s suitable land, and if Kingston councillors still want to be in the game. What we know so far is that

this issue has not gone away, just placed on the backroom backburner. We are told that a handful of private casino operators have been quietly scouting locations in Kingston for a flashy new commercial casino that would be bigger than Gananoque’s and may have hotel and (family?) destination amenities attached. The city’s economic promoter, KEDCO, is actively dealing with casino firms. We won’t know the real odds of Kingston hosting a gambling centre until the province first chooses a casino developer to jointly own and manage the three zones of Kingston/Gananoque, Belleville/Quinte and Peterborough. The gambling question has already divided council and the community, and will likely open more rifts during council’s final year in office if a location is chosen and the rezoning process begins. Battle Lines The Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) will open hearings into Kingston’s revised district boundaries, possibly this fall. Challenges have been launched by a neighbourhood group and the Queen’s student government over

council’s split vote to continue to exclude post-secondary students from district population counts. The controversial decision does not prevent thousands of college and university students from voting in civic elections, but they will not be counted as constituents due to the difficulty in pinning down where they live off campus. A few of Kingston’s 12 revised districts, particularly around Queen’s and St. Lawrence College, face radical boundary changes if students were included. The OMB hearing will review the wisdom and conventional past practice of removing students from the population counts with a ruling that could affect other university towns. If the OMB can’t decide the matter by December 31, then the proposed district map would not be ready in time for the fall 2014 municipal elections. Gateway Vision Developers will be sought to present their vision for a cityowned section of the North Block bounded by Ontario, Queen and King Streets and The Tragically Hip Way. The city is presently working on a Request for Information proposal that could

LET US HELP,

include a high-rise residential building, medium-sized convention centre and public open space on the under-used block across from the K-Rock Centre, which is mostly used for surface parking. It’s much the same process that selected a winning design-builder for the flagship arena. This land is, no doubt, a developers dream due to its prime downtown location, close waterfront attraction and ‘gateway’ status. Expect some ideas to promote a ‘go big or go home’ vision when they are revealed to council, possibly in late 2014, and that could trigger strong public reaction. The selection of a developer’s winning ‘bid’ and sale of the prized downtown block is council’s ultimate goal. Bridge Groundwork No council has advanced a third bridge over the Cataraqui River as much as this one. A landmark environmental assessment was done, and recently approved by the province. Councillors will next consider whether to move to the ‘shovel ready’ stage – a $13 million process that will take three or four years to finalize land acquisitions, bridge design and

costing studies. Councillors will decide this fall during the 2014 budget talks (the budget alone represents a contentious tax-andspend process) whether to start to lay the groundwork for the much-touted third crossing linking John Counter Blvd. and Gore Road. But the actual 1.1 kilometre bridge span, with a price tag in the $120 million-$200 million range, is still years away from having a construction timeline and massive public funding commitment. Tolls, anyone? KP Closing Kingston Penitentiary, the city’s notorious and Canada’s oldest maximum security prison, is expected to close its doors for good this fall. ‘Last inmate out by September 30,’ one prison source told me recently of Corrections Canada’s goal. The question becomes what to do with the soonto-be-vacant hulking landmark by the lake, amusingly described as Canada’s first gated community. City council will undoubtedly weigh in with its own ideas for the feds to consider over the next few months, since this prison represents a potential tourist attraction and property tax generator.

In Our Opinion

Stay cay with Summer Hollie Pratt-Campbell Reporter

@hollieprattcamp

I’ve always hated the word staycation. “It’s an annoying and awkward combination of two words that just shouldn’t go together”, I’ve been known to complain to anyone who will listen. “People need to stop using it.” I mean, it sounds so much like vacation – a word that holds infinite potential for fun and adventure in far-flung places – but then it hits you that there’s a “stay” where the “vay” should be, and it’s a huge letdown. Why would anybody spend their time off at home? All you get are the same old meals to be cooked, the same old messes to be cleaned and reminders of the daily grind everywhere you look. Earlier this month, I found myself face-to-face with my own first-ever staycation. Summer’s caregiver was taking the week off, and Steve’s vacation time is depleting at an alarming rate. For complicated bureaucratic reasons, I came back from maternity leave more vacation than I know what to do with, so I volunteered to take the week off to spend with Sum-

mer. In many ways I was looking forward to it, as it gave me a week to bond with my little girl, whom I don’t get to play with nearly as much as I would like. In another way, I was sorry we weren’t going somewhere special. Alas, it’s hard to take a baby on a trip by yourself, so at home we remained. As it turned out, we had a lot of fun. I taught Summer where her toes are, how to brush her hair and how to climb down from the couch without injuring herself. She spent hours playing in her kiddie pool – which she miraculously has yet to grow bored of. I bought her some bubbles – the kind soapy kind with the wand – and she was absolutely charmed, screaming “bubbas” whenever she caught sight of the container. We had family over for lunch on the Wednesday, and Summer enjoyed being the centre of attention while I welcomed the break of having other people entertain her for a few hours. On the Thursday, Summer and I went on a daytrip to Prince Edward County with my friend Julie and her little girl, McKenna, who is the same age as Summer. We found our own little “exclusive” beach (we were literally the only ones on it), where the babies had a great time running around in their diapers and trying to get away with eating sand. Afterwards, we even managed to hit up

a couple wineries, making it seem almost like the pre-child vacations I once knew and loved. In the evenings, Steve and I put Summer to bed and drank beer or wine while we caught up on Netflix TV shows everyone else seems to have known about for years – Homeland, Arrested Development. We were at home, sure, but it was still nice to sit and relax without constantly worrying about work in the back of my mind. It was also nice to know that the potential to sleep in the next morning was there, even if Summer never did get the memo about mommy’s time off and insisted on waking at her usual 5:30 – 6 a.m. each morning. By the end of the week, I really did feel closer to Summer, which was a wonderful feeling. I think she felt a stronger bond, too, as for a while I dethroned grandpa as her favourite person to be held and entertained by. So maybe taking a vacation at home isn’t so bad after all. I got to relax, bond with my daughter, catch up with friends and family, and explore uncharted territory in a nearby town – and I didn’t spend piles of money doing it. An optimist would look at my week off and call it the best of both worlds. (That said, I still think we should do away with the word staycation.)

Hot cars kill: a few tips to avoid a fatal mistake EMC Editorial - Recently, it seems you can’t turn on the news without hearing yet another tragic story of a young child dying as a result of being forgotten in a hot car. On the surface, it seems inconceivable that an otherwise loving, attentive parent or caregiver could do such a thing. How can anyone in their right mind forget that their child is there in the car with them, and leave them in such a dangerous situation? But consider this situation: Your partner is home sick for the day, so it’s your job to drop the little one off at daycare - a departure from your regular routine. You’re tired. Late. Stressed about work. You pull out of your driveway and autopilot kicks in. You head to the office while the baby falls asleep in the backseat, too quiet to remind you that you’re committing the biggest, most horrific brain fart imaginable. These tragedies are more common than many assume. In 2009, the Pulitzer-prize winning feature Fatal Distraction: Forgetting a Child in the Backseat of a Car Is a Horrifying Mistake. Is It a Crime? appeared in the Washington Post. The article pointed out that two decades ago, these horrifying incidents were quite rare; however, they have become more common since car-safety experts declared passenger-side front airbags could kill children, and recommended child seats be moved to the back of the car. “Parents of all ages and ethnicities do it,” the article said. “It happens to the chronically absent-minded and to the fanatically organized, to the college-educated and to the marginally literate. In the last 10 years, it has happened to a dentist. A postal clerk. A social worker. A police officer. An accountant...It happened to a college professor and a pizza chef. It happened to a pediatrician. It happened to a rocket scientist.” In light of these realities, we would like to offer a few ideas to help you avoid such a fatal mistake: 1) Put your purse, cell phone – or anything that is normally always on your person - in the backseat of the car when your child is there. That way, you are sure to check the backseat before you leave the car. 2) Keel a large stuffed animal in the car seat when the child is not there. Move it to the passenger seat as soon as you put your child in the car, as a reminder. 3) Ask your caregiver to always give you a call if you haven’t dropped your child off by the usual time. These are a few suggestions, but try to find whatever routine works best for your family. Please don’t think this can’t happen to you. One simple step could easily save a young life.

Become a “puppy walker” for a good cause By Kelly Reid Correspondent

EMC Lifestyle - If you have a loving home, lots of time, and a touch of patience, the Canadian Guide Dogs For the Blind would like to reach out to you. The organization is looking for volunteers to help raise the next generation of guide and assistance dogs for this area. “It’s not that much different than owning a pet dog,” explains Steven Doucette, Guider Coordinator for the association. “The main thing is someone who has a lot of love.” The volunteers, who are called “puppy walkers,” are asked to adopt a puppy from the organization’s breeding centre in Manotick. Volunteers receive the puppy at eight weeks of age and raise it until it is between 12 and 18 months. At that point, the puppy is then transferred to the Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind’s National Training Centre. “The first stage of training for a guide dog is with a volunteer,” Doucette goes on. “It’s about raising a good dog.” The puppy walkers are expected to provide daily walks, play time, basic training, and a whole lot of time. The puppies shouldn’t be alone more than a couple of hours per day. “Guide dogs will be spending 24 hours a day with someone,” says Doucette. “So we start that process early.”

Because of the time commitment, puppy walking will not be suitable for everyone. Yet many different types of lifestyles are ideal, according to Doucette. Retirees, people working from home, individuals that can bring the puppy to work with them, part-time workers, and even students have all been successful puppy walkers in the past. Homes with children, other dogs, and a variety of other circumstances have all been allowed in the past. “Really, it’s on an individual basis. The more important aspect is who can’t do it,” says Doucette. Generally, puppy walking cannot work with a 9-5 lifestyle. When a person has been selected to be a puppy walker, Doucette emphasizes that they will be somewhat housebound for the first eight weeks. During this time, the puppy’s vaccinations and health are of the utmost importance, so they shouldn’t be out meeting other dogs and humans just yet. That changes at 16 weeks, at which point Doucette says, “We ask the volunteer to take the dog basically anywhere they go.” Because guide dogs will accompany their owner all the time, guide dogs in training should be treated the same way. Movie theatres, restaurants, shopping centres, and grocery stores are all areas that the dog should become familiar with. The puppy will be provided with a “Guide Dog in Training” vest for proper identification.

Gilbert, a black Labrador retriever, is currently in the Puppy Walking program. “Every once in awhile, we do get a dog that decides they don’t want to do the job, they just want to be a pet,” Doucette laughs. Volunteers should be aware that in such a case, the puppy will be considered as an assistance dog and will still return to Manotick. “There really are very few op-

portunities for adoption,” stresses Doucette. That being said, the organization would like individuals who can provide all of the necessities and love up until 18 months – and then be able to say goodbye – to consider becoming a puppy walker. The Canadian Guide Dogs for the

Fort Henry hosts firstever obstacle race By Kelly Reid Correspondent

EMC Events - Both history buffs and athletes alike can look forward to the latest offering from Fort Henry, which will combine the two in a unique obstacle course race. “Cannonball Rush,” as it has been dubbed by the Fort and their event partner Trailhead Kingston, will be the first event of its kind for both Fort Henry and Kingston. The Cannonball Rush will be a five-kilometre race that traverses the grounds of the Fort as well as its interiors. “I don’t want to reveal too much,” smiles Trailhead owner James Malcolm. “I’ve been sworn to secrecy. But the Fort offers some very unique obstacles.” The Fort is making sure to incorporate its rich history into the punishing run. For instance, some of the obstacles will be based on military drills that go back more than two centuries. There will be a “shot drill,” a highly arduous British military task of moving cannonballs from one area to another. Racers will also be issued “rifles” made of wood to simulate a real soldier’s burden. “There will be a water feature as well,” Malcolm hints, though doesn’t elaborate. The majority of the course will be a surprise to the racers. “The obstacle style of race is very popular,” Malcolm goes on.

It follows the style of Tough Mudder and other well-known races. “This one is more friendly though,” Malcolm laughs. “It’s just for fun. It’s an accomplishment just to finish.” Malcolm also explains that even though Kingston hosts quite a few triathlons as well as marathons and half marathons, the city has yet to do any obstacle races. The Cannonball Rush will be the first of its kind for Kingston. The event comes as another step in Fort Henry’s recent revamping. “They are trying to create more events that can bring them more to the forefront,” explains Malcolm. Like the new multimedia sunset ceremonies and Battery Bistro, the race will show Kingstonians and tourists alike that the Fort has many features to explore. Fort Henry approached Trailhead with the idea and was looking to use some of their expertise in outdoor athletic events. Trailhead contributed to the marketing as well as to the manpower needed to run the event. “The goal is to make it an annual event,” Malcolm says. The race is open to anyone over the age of 18, as individuals or as teams. Teams can be anywhere from two to six members. Registration is still open, so interested parties still have a chance to get involved. After the race, a barbecue and awards ceremony will be held for the racers. “We’re hoping that the participants will hang out, and say and enjoy the Fort,” Malcolm says.

Creating a new FaCility For Patient-oriented researCh “I was short of breath. I couldn’t go shopping – which is very bad for a woman,” jokes 87-year old Anne Schutta. “And I was generally tired, tired all of the time.” After years of suffering from a heart valve defect that kept her from being active, Anne qualified for an innovative new procedure at Kingston General Hospital. Instead of open heart surgery, her heart valve was replaced through a catheter inserted through her groin. She was able to go home four days after the ground-breaking procedure. “After I had the procedure, it was a complete turn-around,” she adds, noting that she feels as good as she did 15 years ago. Anne’s story is one of many from Kingston’s hospitals that highlight the importance of patientoriented research, and the impact it has on our community’s health. It is an example of the kind of treatments and technology that can be developed through patient-oriented research. Advancements in disease prevention, diagnosis and treatment are leading to better patient experiences and outcomes, just like Anne’s. But in order to take full advantage of health care discoveries, we need to ensure they make it to the bedside. That’s why Kingston General Anne Schutta has a new lease on life. Hospital’s strategic plan calls for the construction of a Centre for Patient-Oriented Research. This is a place dedicated to research that will improve the quality of care for patients and allow us to build on our research success. Residents of our region will benefit from expanded studies that involve new, innovative treatments, like the procedure that changed Anne’s life. These treatments will help the patients taking part in our studies, but they’ll also help drive future success and innovation in Kingston’s hospitals. The need for the a Centre for Patient-Oriented Research is urgent. Recently, the Southeastern Ontario Academic Medical Association (SEAMO) committed $20 million to recruit new researchers to Kingston. Seven have already been hired but they need a fully-equipped space to work toward their breakthroughs. That’s why we’re determined and excited to make the centre a reality. The plan is to build a space that will serve our research needs for years to come. The centre will add almost 9,000 square feet of new clinical research space to KGH, an increase of almost 25 per cent. These developments will help KGH achieve its goal of being one of Canada’s leaders in patient-oriented research. The new centre will allow our talented clinician scientists to keep up with the demands of tomorrow, as they continue to provide outstanding care and experiences to our patients.

New taekwondo academy tackles bullying by focusing on both mental and physical martial arts By Hollie Pratt-Campbell hpratt-campbell@theemc.ca

EMC News - Robert Cumming wants to teach kids to tackle bullying through martial arts, though not in the way you might expect. This fall, the St. Lawrence College conflict management instructor and taekwondo master will open Jung Do Martial Arts Academy, where he will train children in both the physical and mental practice of taekwondo. “The highest goal of martial arts is to stop a fight before it begins,” Cumming explains. “The whole idea is to allow [the students] to recognize conflict, and allow them to de-escalate conflict using words and their brain, which is the most powerful weapon they have.” Cumming was inspired to open Jung Do by the birth of his son, Caleb, one year ago. Recalling his own experiences being bullied as a child, Cumming wanted to do his part to make the world Caleb will grow up in a better place. “I was thinking, I want my son to have the best life possible,” he says. “If I can do anything to help him attain the skills that will help him do that then I’m going to provide them for him. If I can help other children along the way, then all the better.” Unlike the majority of martial arts schools in the area, Jung Do

will be modelled after a college term system. Children will be able to enrol for four-month, eightmonth or ten-month terms, as opposed to being able to join at any point throughout the year. “I want to create a culture with these students who are coming so they will get to know each other and learn how to work together as a team and a group,” Cumming says. The first eight months will be dedicated to learning mental and physical martial arts and moving through taekwondo’s ranking system. During the final two months of the 10-month term, students will have the opportunity to put their training into action by volunteering within the community. “The focus will then be outside themselves,” Cumming says. “So they’ve learned how to become a team and work collaboratively with one another. Now, how do they work collaboratively to make a difference in some other area which they will determine? It will sort of be their project.” He notes that he will accept students with a wide range of experience, from beginners to those who have studied taekwondo for years: “I have some children that have some experience, and that’s fine. But the metal martial arts will be new for everybody. I don’t think there’s anyone in this area who

has ever done anything like what we’re going to do. The idea is to start them all off at the same place [and] everybody moves together.” More than anything, Cumming would like the children to learn how to be assertive – a skill he also teaches in his conflict education courses at St. Lawrence College. “Bullying is about power and control,” he explains. “If you’re passive, you’re giving someone you power. If you’re aggressive, you’re taking it. [Assertiveness is] standing up for yourself but at the same time not taking someone else’s power.” Indeed, he remarks that many of his older college students often come up and say they wish they had had the ability to be more assertive as children. While the current focus will be on children and youth aged seven and up, Cumming hopes to eventually open Jung Do up to the entire family – from toddlers to adults. Jung Do will open this fall at a brand new building located at 785 Sir John A. Macdonald Blvd. An information session for families will be held mid-September. To keep updated, or for more information, please visit www.jungdo.ca.

Hooked on fishing lake itself was so peaceful and gorgeous I could have stayed out there forever, and the feeling of a fish tugging at your line is extremely gratifying, even if you don’t end up actually hooking it. “It doesn’t matter if it’s windy, sunny, hot, cold – I love being out there,” Mike remarked. “I love the sport of it. It’s a challenge. It’s a hunt.” For beginners, Mike recommends checking out the National Pro Staff website at www.nps.com, which features all sorts of tips on fishing gear and techniques. Normally, fishing also requires a license, which cost between $20-$30 per year. (We went during National Fishing Week, when anyone can fish without a license.) Canadian Tire also offers guided fishing excursions, in addition to any kind of fishing equipment you could ever want. “They’re bringing in better gear every year,” Mike said. “They’re doing their best to help people enjoy this wonderful sport.” He added that we are very fortunate in this region to have so many excellent places to fish. “You’ve got Lake Ontario, you’ve got all these land-locked lakes, you’ve got the Rideau system –“ he said, noting that the latter is his personal favourite. “It’s a fantastic fishery. It’s got everything you can ever ask for – small mouth, large mouth, pike, trout, lots of different stuff.” Someday, I hope to be able to check it out for myself.

EMC Lifestyle - I knew from the start that I wanted fishing to be part of my summer water activities series, partly because everyone I know who fishes is more than a little obsessed with the sport. What is it about sitting in a boat with a line and rod waiting for fish to bite that is so appealing and addictive? I had to find out for myself. The most avid fisherman I know is my co-worker, Rob Purvis. “You should talk to Mike Howe from Canadian Tire,” Rob told me. “You’ll catch some really big ones with him.” I found Mike in the fishing and hunting department of the Gardiners Road Canadian Tire, which he manages. As promised, he was more than happy to take me out on the water. In fact, Mike remarked that he manages to go fishing about 90 days over the course of the summer – which, if you do the math, works out to the vast majority of days during the season. “I try to take as many people out fishing as I can,” he said, urging me to bring a friend along as his boat seats three people. The only person I could find on such short notice was my husband, Steve, who was excited to experience fishing for the first time himself. The next day, we found ourselves zipping across Loughborough Lake on Mike’s extremely fast fishing boat, to a “hot spot” between two islands where he promised we would find lots of fish. The number one tip Mike gives to fishing beginners: “Fish where the fish are.” “How do you do that?” I asked. Mike admitted that he doesn’t locate the fish all on instinct, and showed me his down imaging equipment, which scans the structure of the lake. “Structure is where you’re going to find fish,” he explained. “If your whole lake is 10 feet deep, find the spot where it dips to 11 or humps up to nine. Or, find the spot that has a pile of rocks or clump of weeds. Generally speaking, that’s where your fish are going to be.” At the same time, Mike was quick to point out that fishing isn’t just about what you catch: “You have to fish for the right reasons. If you’re fishing to enjoy it, it doesn’t matter if you’re catching fish.” Once we arrived at our spot, Mike passed around some rods and showed us how to cast. It was actually quite a bit easier than I was

expecting, and after just one or two casts I had a pretty good grasp of the technique. Before any of us caught a fish, however, we were distracted by a rustling in a nearby tree. I glanced over just in time to see an enormous turkey vulture emerge from the bush – an amazing sight for a girl who has lived in the city her entire life. Mike noted that being in out in nature is a large part of what he loves about fishing. “You’ll see stuff on the water that you never thought you’d see,” he said. “Beavers, otters, ospreys, turkey vultures. Those things are out there, and you’re not going to see those in your living room.” After another 10 minutes or so, Mike caught the first fish of the day – a bass, which he deemed too small to photograph, so we immediately threw it back. The fish looked pretty large to me, however, as the only ones I had ever caught previously were tiny perch and sunfish off the dock at my grandparents’ cottage. “What’s the biggest fish you’ve ever caught?” I asked Mike. He responded that it was a 34-pound salmon, which he reeled in on Lake Ontario near Millhaven. Wow. I wasn’t even aware that we had salmon in this area, let alone 34-pounders. During the hour or two that we spent on Loughborough Lake, we managed to catch about 10 bass between the three of us. One of the fish I caught was approximately two pounds. This seemed huge to my untrained eye, and I was quite proud of myself. Even judging by our relatively short fishing excursion, it was easy for me to see why people become so obsessed with the sport.

Stock your pantry with these healthy staples When hunger pangs arrive and you head to the kitchen to prepare a meal or a snack, it helps to have healthy foods on hand so that you can fill up without filling out your clothes. Sugary or fattening foods may be popular snacks, but consuming too many of these items can cause health implications, including weight gain, that could last for years. Although health experts tout certain "super foods" that are essential for the body, there are run-of-the-mill foods that are far less glamorous but pack their own healthy punch and are much more readily available. When making your next shopping list , be sure to add these items. * Rice: Starchy rice is a versatile food that can accompany many meals. Whether served as a side dish or on its own or with some broth in a soup, rice can help satisfy hunger and keep the stomach feeling full. Brown rice is a healthier option than processed white rice. Rice is also gentle on the stomach for people who need to consume bland diets due to any gastrointestinal ailments. Another advantage to rice is that it stores well and will not go bad, so you can stock up. * Low-fat yogurt: Yogurt can be enjoyed as a snack any time of the day. Rich in calcium and healthy probiotics, yogurt can even replace certain ingredients in recipes, including creams and sour cream. As a dessert, yogurt is a better option than more fattening puddings or ice cream. Thicker varieties of yogurt can help you feel fuller, longer. * Unsalted nuts: An excellent protein-rich snack, nuts can be the goto food when you need a nutritional pick-me-up. Although they tend to be high in fat, much of the fat content is unsaturated fat that is rich in omega acids necessary for cardiovascular and neurological health. Nuts can be sprinkled on salads or served with cheeses to make meals more satisfying. * Canned or dried fruits: Fruits that are packed in natural fruit juices are just as healthy as fresh produce. However, they can be stored for longer periods of time without spoiling. Many people do not consume the recommended servings of fruit, and having canned or individually packaged fruit cups available makes it easy to include fruit in your diet. Fruits are full of required vitamins and are a natural fiber source to keep digestion in check. Dried fruits can be added to nuts to make a healthy trail mix. Raisins, for example, are a great source of iron, which helps the blood transport oxygen. * Beans and legumes: These foods are high in protein as well as fiber, generally in a low-calorie package. Beans and legumes can replace meats as a protein source in many meals when the goal is to reduce caloric and fat intake. Beans can be used to thicken sauces or make foods more hearty, helping to stretch them further. * Vegetables: Whether fresh or frozen, vegetables are a must-have staple. Vegetables are ripe with vitamins and minerals, and pack a lot of punch with very low calories and fat. People need not worry about filling up on veg-

etables, and they're one of the snacks that can be eaten in abundance without worry of racking up a lot of calories. Aim to have half of your plate filled with vegetables at every meal, which will keep you full. * Lean protein sources: Fish, poultry and lean cuts of meat are often the basis for meals. They can be kept and enjoyed in moderation. Rich cuts of pork and beef may be flavorful but are high in saturated fats. * Lemons or lemon juice: Rather than seasoning foods with salt and butter, lemon juice is a tasty flavoring that lends itself well to many types of foods. Lemons and limes contain limonene, furocoumarins and vitamin C, all of which help reduce your risk of cancer. * Cranberry juice: In addition to being an antioxidant, 100 percent cranberry juice helps fight bladder infections by preventing harmful bacteria from growing. The juice can be consumed on its own or diluted to add a splash of flavor to water. * Figs: Many people underestimate the nutritional value of figs. Figs can be eaten fresh off of the tree. Think about adding mashed figs to batters for healthier breads or even desserts. A good source of potassium and fiber, figs also contain vitamin B6, which produces mood-boosting serotonin, lowering cholesterol and preventing water retention. There are many healthy and versatile foods that can be stored in the pantry without spoiling. They make for quick snacks and help keep you feeling fuller, longer.

onstructed during the 1970’s, by Nestor and Donald Wowk, Inverary Golf & Country Club opened the doors to its first nine holes in 1980. From that point on, the small, family run Golf Course began to develop and mature. Today Inverary G&CC is an 18 hole facility with a large fully licenced Clubhouse, Pro Shop and Restaurant. The newer back nine is quite a bit different from the original course. With many winding rivers, large sand traps and wooded areas it’s a challenging yet scenic experience that golfers of all abilities can enjoy. Recently the course has been focusing on upgrades to both the Clubhouse and

the Golf Course. Most changes will take place over the next 12 months but some of them are already in effect. Most recently a new menu has been launched with a great selection of appetizers, salads, sides and main courses. The restaurant is now open until 9:00pm on a daily basis. Ground has already been broken on the construction of a brand new driving range which will be completed and open for business in 2014. The new practice facility will include a full sized driving range and at least one more practice green, in addition to the two practice greens already near the clubhouse.

Over the upcoming winter season the Clubhouse will be undergoing some renovations to improve the service, comfort and appearance of the facility. A few of the renovations will include a new and larger bar, to offer draft beer and improve the speed of service, more flat screen T.V’s, and new flooring laid through the entire Clubhouse. This year Inverary G&CC celebrates its 33rd anniversary, is excited about the upcoming upgrades to the facility, and looking forward to another 33 years of fantastic golf seasons in this wonderful area north of Kingston.

City wants to spruce up image of Rideau Heights neighbourhood nity Centre and Shannon Park, while the Kingston library board has identified the need to open a branch in Rideau Heights. Large commercial developments have also sprouted up along Division Street, along with a new movie theatre. However, the neighbourhood suffered a blow recently with city council’s decision to close the municipally-owned Oakwood Daycare Centre this fall due to declining pre-school enrolment and revenues. The detailed regeneration strategy will also explore the complex questions of asset renewal; how to finance the replacement of an aging stock of affordable housing, plus the design and layout of new housing. The recommendations are likely to depend on funding from all levels of government.

By Bill Hutchins Reporter

EMC News – If there’s one Kingston neighbourhood that could use some sprucing up, city officials say it’s probably Rideau Heights. The area of north Kingston is home to the largest concentration of social housing in the city, which has led to complex challenges for renters and other residents. Now, city council is attempting to spruce up the neighbourhood’s image and amenities. Councillors recently voted unanimously to spend nearly half a million dollars to come up with a Rideau Heights Urban Regeneration Strategy in the area bounded by Division Street, Joseph Street, Cataraqui River and Highway 401. The neighbourhood renewal stems from recommendations of the Kingston Housing Strategy to address an area of the city that is “statistically disadvantaged” in terms of education, employment, health and income levels. The ‘Heights’ is home to 2,000 rentgeared-to-income units, many constructed in the 1960s and 70s, which are currently operated by no less than 16 non-profit housing agencies.

OWLS program aims to help adults with intellectual disabilities By Mandy Marciniak Correspondent

EMC Lifestyle - Summer is a time for adventure, outdoor activities and learning new things, all of which are promoted as part of the OWLS program. Now in its second year, OWLS, which stands for Oral Communication, Wellness, Life Skills, Social Skills, is a program run by Jane Etherington of the Limestone Community Education Centre. The program caters to young adults with intellectual disabilities. “Last year it was purely a women’s program, but we had such great feedback that we decided to expand it this year,” explained Etherington. A few of the girls who participated last year have returned for this year’s program simply because it was a fun experience. “I had a lot of fun last year and it wasn’t boring. It runs for four weeks so it keeps me busy for a large portion of the summer. You are always out and about and taking adventures and that is great for the summer,” said Lauren. The program works with individuals between the ages of 1930.

“It meets a need, because there isn’t programming like this during the summer with the school board. There is nothing that is fine tuned to a specific age group,” said Etherington. “It really meets the social needs of these individuals and their specific ages and peers. Sometimes in programs geared towards these individuals, they can end up in a program with people that are 20 years older than them or with people that are at a vastly different range of abilities and interests.” The focus of the group is to do activities that promote the ideas expressed in program’s acronym name. “We try to incorporate that into everything that we do. We did owl themed crafts this morning and that helps with communication, because everyone was helping and working with each other to do the craft,” explained Etherington. “We focus on nutrition with group lunches and cooking demonstrations and learning how to make different entrees.

Prelude to kisses—and comic chaos

Tess Degenstein, holding back Robert (Kirk Smith), gives a comic performance second-to-none in her role as flight attendent Gretchen, in Boeing Boeing, now showing at the Thousand Islands Playhouse.

Degenstein took the notion of opera (there’s no singing in this play) and added the comic genius of an Ameri-

can director. “I watched a lot of Mel Brooks before coming to Gan,” she said. “So op-

in maintaining his lifestyle is spiteful French maid Berthe (Anita Wittenberg). One of her most important, and resented, roles is changing the photo of the lover-in-residence-on-any-givenday. Along comes Robert (Kirk Smith), a long-time friend of Bernard. Unlike Bernard, Robert is somewhat reticent. At first. The tides soon turn. It’s a simple arrangement for Bernard. After all, he has a giant book with the flight schedules for the world’s airlines. What could go wrong? Besides weather, airport congestion, layovers and Boeing’s 707 technology with improved jet velocity? Lots. And it does. It doesn’t take long until Bernard’s tidy life and his engagements begin to unravel. But will he learn to value things that matter? There is no weak link in this zinger. Each cast member fulfills a role to perfection. Within the context of such a strong play, I’m hesitant to centre anyone out, but Tess Degenstein gives the comic performance of the season. I asked Degenstein what strange place on the planet gave birth to her inspiration. “It’s in the writing itself,” she said. “I started from the passion that was in the role. I also thought of cultural things in Germany and the high emotion. That led me to opera, so I watched a lot of opera videos and wondered how I’d act if I was the grand dame in an opera company.”

EMC Lifestyle - Watching Boeing Boeing at the Thousand Islands Playhouse, I had to remind myself that this play is more than 50 years old. There were moments when I thought I was watching a Christopher Durang overthe-edge satire. It’s described as a classic farce, but in the hands of director Daryl Cloran it becomes a contemporary metaphysical study in relationships. What matters? What doesn’t? What role does integrity play in our lives? So many questions arose from such a hilarious production. Like any play of this style, there’s a fine line between the production being a farce and farcical. Split-second timing is crucial to successful production of this play. The superior talent of the cast allows it to work. The play was written by Marc Camoletti and translated from the original French by Beverley Cross. Boeing Boeing opened in London in 1962 and ran for seven years. Bernard (Brett Christopher), an American, resides in a luxurious Parisian apartment and leads the happy life of a less-than-honest bachelor. It’s safe to say that he has a laissez-faire attitude toward relationships. He’s engaged to American stewardess Gloria (Alison Deon). And Italian stewardess, Gabriella (Krista Colosimo). And German stewardess Gretchen (Tess Degenstein). Assisting Bernard

Enchanté

Musical metaphysics EMC Lifestyle - Music lineages and connections fascinate me. More than 40 years ago, Ellis Marsalis, father of the famed jazz musician Branford Marsalis gave Harry Connick Jr. piano lessons in their hometown of New Orleans. Connick and the younger Marsalis became lifelong friends. The pair influenced Wolfe Islander Chris Brown early in his career. Brown has been a musician since his toddler years. His sister, older by two-and-a-half years, took classical piano lessons. “One of my earliest memories is reaching up to the keyboard and imitating what she did,” said Brown. “My sister studied with the Ursulines in Toronto. At three, they took me in to the nuns and I played for them.” He’s never stopped playing. “Music became my career during high school in Toronto.” He toured with a band from the time he was in his mid-teens until his mid20s. Brown relocated to New York City in 1995. He’s still living in Brooklyn. He also found a wonderful getaway, an ancient home that once served as the post office on Wolfe Island. “I grew up on the road,” he said. “Being in New York was like travelling without having to go anywhere. Many of the teachers I studied with are there. I was drawn to the music and history that came out of New York.” When we got together on Wolfe Is-

land, he was heading to Welland the following day to play in a gig with Sarah Harmer. Two days later he returned to New York City and performed that night at Rockwood Music Hall. When Chris Brown’s at home on Wolfe Island he’s surrounded by instruments. The first I notice is an old Fender Telecaster. We talk guitars. He leaves the room and comes back with a 1943 Gibson acoustic for me to try out. It’s safe to say that a 70-year-old Gibson has nice tone. As for the piano on which he first learned to play, it sits in a room off his kitchen. “My mom shipped it to me for my birthday three years ago,” he said. When he was having it tuned and checked its innards, he realized that the piano had come full circle. “We discovered that it had been made in the S & R building.” Our conversation meandered around Gibson guitars, Neil Young, Vietnamese Buddhist Thich Nhat Hanh, plumbing, cats and social networking. I get the impression such philosophical touring could easily stretch through the night. After high school, Brown was accepted into Boston’s Berklee College of Music to study composition. “Just after I got accepted at Berklee, Branford Marsalis came up to me at a gig Harrick Connick was playing in,” said Brown. “He was convinced he

knew me from Berklee. I told him I’d only gone for five minutes.” Marsalis asked Brown, since he was already a professional, why he’d want to stop working in music to go to school. He then invited Brown to hang out with him and Harry Connick Jr. “We hung out until the wee hours of the morning,” said Brown. “After that, I just never stopped doing music.” How does a musician handle life in such a hectic industry? Yoga and philosophy help. He meditates for an hour every morning. He also gets in 45 to 60 minutes of yoga during the day.. “That’s how the day starts,” he said. “It tends to keep things in a certain kind of light. Things stop being conflicting and start being complementary.” You sense the peace around him and in his home. There’s a contentment with a hidden restless stirring. He’s excited about his work and the island. “This area is so fertile with musicians,” he said. “The number of peo- Chris Brown at the piano on which he learned to play when he was ple around here like the Hip, Chantal a toddler.

Prelude to kisses— Musical metaphysics and comic chaos Continued from page 22

points.” Word on the street is that this is a hit. Several people who have seen Boeing Boeing told me I had to go see it just to watch the actor who plays the German (Degenstein). I’d already seen the show, but I fully agreed. Once you’ve seen her on stage, it’s hard to imagine that anything could possibly make Degenstein blush, but when I asked her about a tweet she’d recently posted on Twitter, she did just that. Then she explained the posting. I’ll paraphrase: Degenstein tweeted that sometimes she thinks the purpose of her art is to make people want to grab one another’s butt. She gave a rather embarrassed laugh. “I forget that what I put on Twitter isn’t private,” she said. “But this show is so much fun. It’s for everyone. It’s about Gretchen and her sexuality and allowing a female to be sexually so present. There’s so much kissing in the show. It’s a sex farce. For me playing this character, it was freeing. It cracked something open in that way. As for my Twitter post, I was expressing the silliness of the play. It would tickle me to see a couple being tender physically with each other in some loving way after the show.” Her skills aren’t limited to comedy. She’s had extensive experience in Shakespeare’s works. She’s played Glinda in The Wizard of Oz. You may have seen her in TV shows like Murdoch Mysteries, Space Janitors, and King. “I think that’s the joy of this job,” she said. “I mentioned my research for this project. That’s one of the wonderful things about this work, the research for every role is so vastly different. On one hand, I got to learn about Mel Brooks movies I didn’t know. On the other end, when doing Shakespeare, I get to delve into linguistic puzzles. It tickles my brain. Shakespeare demands something. You have the same intense and split second timing in Boeing Boeing. There are real parallels between Shakespeare and this work. It’s all about the timing and an understanding of the use

of words.” Brett Christopher plays the role of the comic Casanova, juggling three women, in a role drastically different from some of the darker ones he’s played in recent productions (The Clockmaker, Vigil). “It’s the chameleon nature of the actor,” he said. “It’s why I like playing this role. It’s so diametrically opposed to the ones I’ve had in my last plays. The tone of this whole piece is light. That’s why you get into the business. You get to mix it up.” The cast works with a script that’s fun, but it’s one that demands good casting or this farce could be a disaster. “Daryl (Cloran, director) did a wonderful job in terms of casting,” said Christopher. “You’re casting for a real endurance test in this play. The performance of these roles is so physical. Everyone involved has a lot of movement training. The movement in this play is like choreography. It’s crucial to the comic timing. In rehearsals we worked as hard on movement as we did on character development. We had to get the beat down precisely.” In one scene, Christopher comes flying over a couch toward the audience. The plot took an interesting turn on opening night. “The couch busted when I landed on it,” said Christopher. “At intermission, the crew had to fix it. It wasn’t meant for that foolishness. Almost all the furniture is bolted down and reinforced with metal under the upholstery. We’re constantly rolling over tables and couches.” To find out the results of dealing with three fiancées, a French maid and a good friend all in one apartment, check out Boeing Boeing. Despite my description of the content of this play, this show is not inappropriate for older children. In fact, they’ll enjoy the madcap adventure and physical humor as much as adults, but on a completely different level. The production runs until July 27 at the Thousand Islands Playhouse in Gananoque. For tickets: www.1000islandsplayhouse.com

with Jen Chapin (Harry Chapin’s daughter) in New York. Thanks to the Chris’ connection, you’ll be able to hear Jen Chapin at the Wolfe Island Grill on August 11. “She’s headlining the Oakville Jazz Festival, and I roped their gang into an Island visit on their day off.” That about sums up Chris Brown’s life. It’s a musical web with connections everywhere such that you can hear a big jazz festival headliner at a small venue on Wolfe Island. He keeps is all in perspective. Music is the all-encompassing sage for him, even in lectures. “I just did a TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design presentations) lecture about origins last week in New York,” he said. “I played and spoke with Oren Bloedow. That was fun to have a great guitarist accompanying

me. It calls up different details. When you add music to the context, things start to seep into your pours. Music brings another context. I like adding music at protests, events or lectures.” Past presenters of TED lectures include the likes of Malcolm Gladwell, Richard Dawkins, Bill Gates and Jane Goodall. Chris Brown is in good company. Brown’s own mentors and people he looks up to aren’t necessarily famous or well known. “Thich Nhat Hanh, a Vietnamese Buddhist bridges east and west in an incredible way,” said Brown. “And my hard-working neighbours on Wolfe Island. The woman next door is a community nurse. I come out to Wolfe Island in a blizzard and find that I’ve been dug out by a back hoe. And my plumber, Gord Greenwood. He’s like Moses, he can move water.”

He says his home, built in 1880, never had running water. “Water was a mystery that Gord Greenwood solved for me.” Sitting down with Chris Brown is a journey in itself. The conversation is not linear, it flows like a Celtic knot. Within this labyrinth of musical and philosophical knowledge rests a man committed to sound. Things he says about others, just as easily apply to him. “Both Neil Young and Glen Gould have a deep involvement with sound and recorded media,” he said. “Talking music with Neil and talking gear with him and seeing ways he sets up, nothing is arbitrary. The same with Glen Gould. Every single note played involves a decision.” For more information: www. chrisbrownmusic.com; and check out Chris Brown and Kate Fenner on Facebook.

Pink tour stops in Kingston By Hollie Pratt-Campbell hpratt-campbell@theemc.ca

EMC News - It was virtually impossible to miss the big pink bus parked in front of the North Kingston Community Health Centre on the morning of July 9. Indeed, being as conspicuous as possible is the very point of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation’s Pink Tour, which is travelling across Ontario for the second summer in a row. The tour aims to engage locals at its 90 different stops in an interactive learning experience about breast health; accordingly, the pink bus is rigged up with a variety of

fun quizzes and interactive videos. In addition to the North Kingston Community Health Centre, the bus made two other Kingston stops at the Bath Road CIBC and the west end Princess Street Shoppers Drug Mart on July 6. “The two main goals we’re trying to communicate are that one third of breast cancers are preventable… as well as the fact that screening saves lives,” said CIBC Run for the Cure director Mark Brogno. “A great, big 50-some –foot bus will stand out,” he continued. “People will be curious, and just from a visual perspective I think it draws attention and raises people’s ques-

tions in terms of why is the bus here and what it’s all about.” Brogno explained that the pink tour team hopes to communicate to women that there are steps they can take in their day-to-day lives, such as becoming more active and drinking less alcohol, which can directly impact their chances of a breast cancer diagnosis. In addition, they hope to have as many women as possible sign up for a mammogram. “We know that the earlier breast cancer is detected, the better one’s chances of survival are,” Brogno said. He noted that the pink tour team has observed varying levels of knowledge on the subject of breast cancer prevention across the

province. “We’re definitely reaching out to a lot of communities whose education level is not really high,” he noted. “Kingston may not be a great example of that – I think the education level is higher here – but in general I would say a lot of women know some basic facts but don’t know enough. There’s a lot more they can find out that would help them learn what they can do to improve their own breast health.” For example, Brogno pointed out that while most people realize living a healthy lifestyle will decrease their odds of contracting breast cancer, many are not aware that a being at a healthy body weight directly reduces the odds of a diagnosis. Deputy mayor Sandy Berg was one of the many women who took a tour of the pink bus. “It’s fantastic,” she remarked.

“It’s so much more than what I expected…The bus is more than just a vehicle that’s transporting them from community to community. It’s the vehicle in which they’re engaging the community.” Berg hoped the tour’s Kingston stops made as many local women as possible more aware of both breast health issues, and the importance of living a healthy, active lifestyle in general. “Although there’s a great abundance of screening that’s been going on since the ‘80s, there’s still a percentage of the population that isn’t taking advantage of the screening process,” Berg said. “[This tour] is a great thing, and I’m really glad that they came to Kingston.” For more information about the pink tour and breast cancer prevention, please visit www.pinktourontario.com.
