Solar Standoff: Samsung farm generates controversy among neighbours Kingston Frontenacs Pg. 29

EMC News – Kingston’s rural residents are caught in a solar flare, and they are appealing to city hall for help. “This process has been nothing but combative,” complained Mike Sewell of the Unity Road Ratepayers Association. The district councillor agrees a massive solar farm proposed in Kingston’s northwest rural area is a “violation” of the neighbours’ space and the city’s established guidelines. “They ran out of land and they’re going right in people’s faces. Fifty feet

from one house. That’s an incredible violation,” said Countryside councillor Jeff Scott. Samsung’s planned SolLuce solar farm will cover about 640 acres spanning a collection of rural properties in the area of Highway 38 and Unity Road. The energy project, featuring rows of hundreds of thousands of solar panels, will generate 62 megawatts of electricity for the Ontario power grid. “It’s one of the largest we’ve ever seen. It’s ten times the size of any of the other one’s coming in front of us,” explained Coun. Scott. What has the district councillor and many neigh-

bours upset is the feeling that their input and concerns are being ignored by solar farm proponents. “Samsung felt their process was more important than ours,” said Sewell, whose ratepayer group represents about 300 members. While area residents say they don’t object to solar farms or renewable energy, they do fear the Samsung proposal will have a direct impact on their quality of life. They say the project does not following the city’s own guidelines for landscaping and site plan design for large-scale solar projects, which calls for visual buffering along road-

ways (berm and trees) and minimum setbacks of 100 metres from roads and 20 metres from homes. They also claim about 100 acres of prime agricultural land would be lost, which is in violation the city’s Official Plan. “Our guidelines are anything but onerous,” said Scott, who noted the project will have 23 kilometres of tall chain link security fencing that will be visible from roads. Samsung representatives were not given the opportunity to appear before council to address the issue, although they remain in consultation with city officials.

Kingston has already dealt with at least two solar farms on its rural land, though much smaller in scale, without objections. The Samsung project, however, would be one of the biggest in the region, if not the world, in terms of acreage, according to Coun. Scott. Solar farms need to occupy large tracts of land in order to generate electricity to help the province’s future power needs. By comparison, five wind turbines would produce the same amount of power as 100 acres of solar panels. Sewell says Samsung of-

Councillors refuse to make public spectacle of Providence Care hospital design By Bill Hutchins Reporter

EMC News – Councillors say they don’t want to jump to conclusions about the layout of Kingston’s new Providence care hospital on King Street West. Concerns have been raised that the hospital’s forensic unit will be located too close to the new splash pad and playground at neighbouring Lake Ontario Park. “I wanted to send a message and I think we did,” said Portsmouth councillor Liz Schell, who represents the district where the 270bed hospital will be built. Coun. Schell’s motion to give civic politicians a greater say in the hospital’s design and layout was defeated by council October 23. Still, she is pleased the issue was discussed and is getting the attention it deserves. “This (motion) has continued the conversation in a respectful way about a very serious subject and I think we handled it in a very sensitive manner,” she said af-

ter the vote. Much of the concern stems from the potential location of the forensic unit on the western side of the former Kingston psychiatric hospital grounds. Some believe locating high risk people with mental illness so close to the city-owned park is inappropriate. But Mayor Mark Gerretsen says it’s too early to be pre-judging the hospital design. “We hear the word ‘forensic’ and psychiatry and instantly we picture (the old) Rockwood (lunatic asylum) with bars on the windows and the old limestone. I think we’re jumping the gun.” He says the city doesn’t need to pass a formal motion to discuss the issue with Providence officials, who initially expressed surprise to hear about the city’s concerns. “I am much more interested in more of the offline discussions - trying to work the diplomatic route - before we try and take a heavy hammer down,” said the mayor.

Councillors agree the hospital, combining mental health and rehabilitation services under one roof, is desperately needed in Kingston. But they also want to make sure the site layout complements the family atmosphere of Lake Ontario Park. “Councillors mentioned it and I would expect Providence Care has heard it,” said Coun. Schell, who believes a behind-the-scenes discussion will ensure the two government organizations remain good neighbours. She says Providence Care has already provided revised site drawings that show the forensic unit “in a bowl” that is not as visible from the playground. The mayor added: “I don’t think the operators of the hospital are interested in putting potential risk next to children either.” Currently, council has delegated city planning staff to review and approve the hospital’s site plan. Coun. Schell’s failed motion would have sent that discussion to the planning

committee to allow councillors and the public to provide more direct feedback. The hospital is believed to be Kingston’s first design-build project using the provincial government’s P3 model. That is, allowing a private firm to design, build, finance and maintain the hospital. Critics say the P3 model could end up costing taxpayers an extra $100 million over the province’s long-term payback with interest. Councillors have already invited provincial officials to address a future meeting to explain the costs involved with the hospital project before it goes to tender later this fall. Three companies have been shortlisted; Integrated Team Solutions, Plenary Health and Providence Alliance. Each company has assembled its own builders, architects and financial teams. A date for the final contract award has not been announced but work on the hospital is expected to begin next year with a target completion date of 2016.

ficials hosted public meetings, but he feels the company has not done enough to earn the support of rural residents. “We made our feelings known and nothing has changed,” he told council October 16. Under the province’s Green Energy Act, municipalities have very little control over the size, location and design of solar, wind and other renewable energy projects. However, the city can provide input to the Ministry of the Environment (MOE). Council approved a resolution calling for the SolLuce project to respect the city’s Official Plan to not occupy prime agricultural land, and to enter into talks with the community regarding the land use and visual impact. “There are impacts to the cultural landscape,” agreed said Coun. Sandy Berg. However, councillors stopped short of approving another motion asking the province to “reinstate”

municipal powers over all green energy projects. Most fear such powers will divide communities and result in NIMBY-ism. “My biggest fear … if powers are turned over to municipalities then no projects will be approved,” said Mayor Mark Gerretsen. Coun. Scott remains hopeful the province will heed the city’s request and demand the Sol-Luce project adhere to municipal guidelines on setbacks and sightlines. He added: “The province has been very interested in this. The MOE has been supportive of us from the beginning.” Samsung has assembled land in Kingston’s rural area because it’s near the main transmission lines, providing easier access to plug into Hydro’s power grid at favourable energy generation rates.

EMC News – The search is on for two chiefs to oversee emergency services in Kingston. Nearly two months after police chief Stephen Tanner resigned to take a similar role in Halton Region, the Kingston Police Services Board is starting a recruitment process to find the city’s newest top cop. “We have a great degree of confidence the acting chief (deputy chief Antje McNeely) is capable of handling things. Therefore we are not in a massive panic to find somebody,” said Mayor Mark Gerretsen, who also serves on the police board. The mayor would not reveal many details about the hiring process, but says the board is aiming to hire Tanner’s replacement by year’s end. The board has a history of hiring police chiefs from outside the organization’s rank-and-file officers. But Mayor Gerretsen says all candidates are welcome to apply. “I am interested in both inside and outside applicants and assessing them from that point.” Meanwhile, a search is also underway for the new chief of Kingston Fire & Rescue. Veteran chief Harold Tulk is retiring in two months. “The current chief is still here until the end of the year so it’s not as though we’ve run out of time,” explained Gerretsen.

wind down. The $17.4 million widening work - between Division Street and Sir John A. Macdonald Boulevard - will take two years to complete. The busy east-west route is being widened to two lanes in each direction, plus a centre turning lane. The city’s engineering department says the strategy is to complete most of the underground and utility installation work and to lay down a coarse layer of asphalt on the south side of the road by the end of this year. “We want to flip all traffic to the south side then, and that will allow us to concentrate next year on finishing the north side,” explained Mark Van Buren, the city’s director of engineering. A timeline and budget to finish the widening work between Sir John A. Macdonald Boulevard and Princess Street, the most expensive phases, has not been set by council. That includes installing a fourlane bridge over the main CN tracks at the VIA train station. The entire 3.6 kilometre widening project will cost about $70 million.

It Starts Here: KFL&A Public Health jump starts conversation about alcohol in our community with release of Alcohol Report kcoughlar@perfprint.ca

EMC News – The findings are in. Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox & Addington Public Health is set to launch its Alcohol Report Monday. Over the course of the last year or so, information has been gathered from local hospitals, police services, and provincial and national surveys to help paint a picture of the culture of alcohol use in society. It Starts Here, a report on Alcohol in the City of Kingston is intended to jump start the conversation on alcohol use in our community and examine its impact on both individuals and the community at large. It also asks how we as a community can create conditions where alcohol use is only a part of our good times. Helping to launch this report will be Ann Dowsett Johnston, an awardwinning Canadian journalist, and 2011 recipient of the Atkinson Fellowship in

Public Policy. Dowsett Johnston will serve as the launch event’s keynote speaker. Her 14 years covering education at Maclean’s magazine, specifically its annual University Rankings from 1992 to 2005, saw Dowsett Johnston develop an interest in the evolving culture of alcohol use in our society. “I began to notice that there were a lot more articles on the fact that young women, especially at university, were drinking more than they had in previous times,” Dowsett Johnston explained, adding that she noticed this first-hand while covering the Aberdeen Street party of 2005. “I was curious about it.” That curiosity led her to the Atkinson Fellowship in Public Policy, an annual competition which provides a grant for a Canadian journalist to commence a yearlong research project on a topical public policy issue. Her 2011 fellowship culminated in a 12-part series on women and alcohol. “There was such a huge

response to the series that I decided to do a book… I’m now writing a major international book on girls, women and alcohol which will come out next September,” she said. Dowsett Johnston said she will focus her talks Monday on three things: “We know a lot about tanning beds and Trans Fats but we know very little about the health implications of our favourite drug. We don’t know that it’s the source of 50 diseases… We’re pretty blindfolded when it comes to our favourite drug. That’s No. 1” She said she will also look at the marketing of alcohol, and perhaps most importantly she will ask the audience whether they have an opinion on whether or not we, as a society, are going about alcohol the right way. “I’m not a prohibitionist by any stretch of the imagination, but I do believe that we haven’t had enough of an open dialog about alcohol in our society...Do we, for instance, really think the LCBO should be mar-

keting; should it be printing those glossy, expensive brochures? Yes or no?...I just don’t believe we’ve had an open dialog about alcohol the same way we have about all sorts of things in our culture.” Dowsett Johnston said she believes we, as a society, have conflicted values around alcohol, which has prevented us from having this open dialog. “We tend to use alcohol to relax, to reward, to celebrate. What we don’t talk about is that we also use alcohol to numb, to forget, to be blind toward problems in life,” she said. She added that people also often tend to think that the person who has trouble with alcohol is that one individual on the street corner with a brown bag in hand. Yet, if you were to ask a room full of people to raise their hand if their life has ever been affected by alcohol or someone who has gotten into trouble with alcohol, every person in the room would raise their hand. That being said, we here

in Canada don’t treat what Dowsett Johnston describes as our “most common” and “most favourite” drug the same way that other countries do. “We don’t go about it, for instance, the same way as Sweden where no one drinks and drives because there are random breath tests. We don’t go about it the same way as the U.S. where the drinking age is 21.” We need to ask ourselves if we are happy with the status quo, she said. KFL&A’s Alcohol Report will help the community answer that question. “We have a chance to have an opinion about it as a public if we know the details…you can’t do anything without data. It’s like a good budget: You don’t know what to spend on rent if you haven’t bothered to look at your salary.” Dowsett Johnston commended Kingston and KFL&A Public Health for leading the way and taking on this initiative. “I think that Kingston is to be applauded…because

this the level at which you can make a difference,” she said. Dowsett Johnston will present Our Love Affair with Alcohol: How a Fairy Tale Romance Blocks Strong Policy and How Media Can Help during an evening public forum Monday Nov. 5, 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. in Davies Hall at St. Lawrence College.

CHANGE YOUR CLOCKS, BATTERIES Kingston Fire & Rescue reminds citizens to change smoke alarm batteries and carbon monoxide (CO) alarm batteries when changing clocks back to Standard Time on Sunday, Nov. 4. Fire Inspector Tracey LeBlanc says ‘in order to safely escape a residential fire, it is critical to have a home escape plan and working smoke alarms to provide occupants with early warning.’ Battery and electric smoke alarms, as well as carbon monoxide alarms must be tested monthly to guarantee that they work properly. Always use new batteries in detectors and press the ‘test’ button to confirm the devices are operational. Smoke alarms and CO alarms have a maximum ‘life expectancy’ of up to 10 years and should be replaced as per the manufacturers’ instructions. It is the law in Ontario to have properly working smoke alarms on every level of your home and outside sleeping areas. Disabling smoke alarms and non-compliance with the Ontario Fire Code smoke alarm requirements can result in a ticket of $235 or a fine of up to $50,000 for homeowners, tenants, and individual landlords or up to $100,000 for corporations.

How to avoid being victimized by online charity scams Generous donors are an essential element of a successful charity. Charities and nonprofit organizations rely on donations to fund their daily operations and help achieve the goals set forth in their mission statements. While charities rely on donors, criminals prey on them, especially online. Generous men and women are prime targets for online scammers, who can easily present themselves as a worthy charity with a goal of scamming donors out of their money, funds that could be going to worthwhile charities instead. As a result, men and women need to be especially suspicious

of online scams while employing the following tips to protect themselves. * Don't fall for victim stories. Anyone who has had an e-mail account has no doubt received an e-mail from a stranger claiming to be a victim but only needs some generous donors to get back on his or her feet. Such stories typically involve someone affected by a natural disaster or stricken with a terrible disease. The "victim" will solicit financial information, which he or she claims will go toward financing the recovery process. These victims are almost certainly criminals hoping to access your financial records or simply

squeeze a donation out of you and thousands of other generous men and women. When you receive such an unsolicited e-mail, delete the message before opening. * Never open unsolicited e-mail attachments. Another way criminals use e-mail to get at unsuspecting victims is by sending unsolicited e-mails that include attachments. Criminals may say these attachments are photos of the tragedy left in a natural disaster's wake, but they are more likely viruses aimed at gaining access to your computer and any sensitive information therein. Never open these e-mails, and if you do by mistake,

never open the attachments. * Don't click on links included in an e-mail or online solicitation. Criminals are clever, and many are fully capable of creating a fraudulent Web site that's a mirror image of a reputable charity's Web site. Links to these fraudulent sites might be included in the body of an e-mail or on social media sites. Never click on these links. If a particular cause or charity strikes a chord with you, find out the charity's URL address and then type that address into your browser manually. Clicking on the link in the e-mail could bring you to a fraudulent site, and such sites are so well done that

you might not know the difference. * Only make secure donations. When making a donation, only do so via secure Web sites. A secure Web site will include a padlock symbol at the top or bottom right of the page, and the URLwill begin with an "https://" instead of just "http://". The "s" in the URL ensures that the site is secure and that others cannot access any financial information, such as sensitive credit card information, you must share when making a donation. * Only make online donations with credit cards, not debit cards. When making an online donation, do

What’s Happening

not use a debit card. Debit cards do not have the same level of fraud protection as credit cards, which will reimburse any fraudulent charges made in your name. A criminal who gains access to your debit card can empty the account the card is associated with before you even know it, and those funds are not necessarily under the rules of your agreement. Generous men and women looking to help the less fortunate or support a favorite charity are often prime targets of online criminals. A few precautionary measures can ensure that those individuals' generosity is not used against them.

EDITORIAL

Ready to put on my dancing cap Coughlar's Corner By Kristen Coughlar kcoughlar@theheritageemc.ca

EMC Editorial – Growing up I wore a lot of hats, figuratively speaking. In addition to my regular roles as daughter, sister, student and friend, I was a baseball player, volleyball player, high jumper and gymnast. One hat I never wore was that of a dancer’s, although I always thought I would like to. My only dance experience in 28 years was during a brief stint on a high school cheerleading team, and charity fashion show, but it’s never too late to give something a try, right?

So, that’s what I’m doing. Last week I attended my first adult recreational dance class at the Kingston School of Dance. KSD offers a lunch program and evening classes for adults interested in a variety of disciplines, including Ballet, Afro Cuban, Latino Jazz, Adult Contemporary and Ballroom and Latin for Couples. I plan to attend most, if not all of them, and I’m inviting you, my readers, along with me for the journey. In upcoming editions of Coughlar’s Corner, I will detail my experience with each style of dance. By the end of it I hope to have stumbled upon a discipline that’s right up my alley. Of course, there’s always the chance that despite my daydreams I just wasn’t cut from the cloth of a dancer. Either way, we’ll find out. So, let’s jump in. As I mentioned above, I hit up

my first class last week. It was Adult Contemporary on a Wednesday evening. According to its online description, “The focus of the class is an emotional response to natural movement ideas, concentrating on the principles of contraction, release and giving into gravity.” I picked it to be my first class out of the gate because I knew it would test me. I’m a tense person at the best of times, and I knew that some of the more fluid movements of contemporary would be a challenge. I was right, it was a challenge. Some movements, as expected, were harder to master than others, if you believe anything can be mastered in one class that is. My instructor and the school’s Artistic Director, Ebon Gage, made me feel comfortable, as did the classes other two partici-

pants, who definitely had seen the inside of a dance studio before. While it might not have looked ready for the stage, I was impressed that by the end of a one-hour class I could perform a short sequence. I was also surprised by the workout I got. I probably sweat just as much as I would in an hour on the elliptical, and the following day I felt the full effects of my workout. One contemporary dance class worked muscles in my body I’ve never noticed following a workout at the gym.

EMC - Your Community Newspaper IN OUR OPINION

In Our Opinion

Junk Food tax not the answer to obesity epidemic EMC Editorial – If the Ontario Medical Association has its way shoppers will soon be paying more for some of their guilty pleasures. At a news conference Oct. 23, the Ontario Medical Association called for aggressive new measures to combat obesity. According to the association, one in three Canadian children, 31.5 per cent, is overweight or obese and three quarters of overweight children remain so in adulthood. Moreover, effects associated with obesity cost tax payers between $2.2 and $2.5 billion annually. In an effort to fight this public epidemic the OMA is calling for increased taxes on junk food, decreased taxes on healthy goods; marketing restrictions on fatty and sugary foods; placement of graphic warning labels on high calorie foods with little to no nutritional value; health risk information on displays of high-sugar and high-fat foods; and restrictions on the availability of sugary, low-nutritional value foods in recreational facilities. The proposed measures introduced by the OMA take inspiration from anti-tobacco campaigns that have contributed to reducing smoking rates in Ontario. They point to tax increases, public information, removal of tobacco displays and advertising bans for reducing smoking rates in the province from close to 50 per cent in the 1960s to 20 per cent today. While we support the OMA’s efforts in reducing the province’s growing obesity epidemic, we take particular issue with one of its proposals: increased taxes on junk food. While we do agree that increased taxes on tobacco products helped to reduce smoking rates in the province, those taxes only affected smokers. Increased taxes on junk food would impact consumers at large, including those who maintain a healthy diet and active lifestyle but choose every once in a while to indulge. We would prefer to see decreased taxes on healthy foods and health risk information be the cornerstones of any anti-obesity campaign. Arming all consumers with the information and financial means to make healthy decisions is the way to go in our book.

Kingston grandmothers lend a helping hand to counterparts in Africa By Kristen Coughlar kcoughlar@perfprint.ca

EMC Events – Looking to get a jump start on your Christmas shopping? If so, you’re sure to find a variety of fabulous gifts for family, friends and loved ones this Saturday at the Hellenic Banquet Hall, 121 Johnson St. The Kingston Grandmother Connection is hosting its annual Market for Africa at the hall that day from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. What started off as a group of three women six years ago, Kingston Grandmother Connection has blossomed to the

point where the organization now boasts a membership of over 200 people. Each year, its members host fundraising events in support of the Stephen Lewis Foundation and Help Lesotho, organizations which help mitigate the effects of HIV/AIDS by providing support for grandmothers who now act as caregivers for their orphaned grandchildren. “This is probably the biggest fundraiser that we have,” said event chair Nona Mariotti. Now in its fifth year, the Market for Africa is an opportunity for community members to learn more about

the Kingston Grandmother Connection, Stephen Lewis Foundation and Help Lesotho, and do a little bit of shopping in support of a good cause. Thousands of baked goods, preserves, clothing, art, jewelry, and festive treasures will all be on display and for sale during the six-hour event. All items at the Market for Africa are handmade or donated by members and supporters of the Kingston Grandmother Connection. “We have a wonderful table called Global Gifts. We started that last year, and people just ate it up. We all have things around

our home that we’ve bought while we’ve been away travelling, but we’re tired of it and its time to go to a new décor,”Mariotti said, noting that shoppers will find treasures from all over the world at that table. Another new addition last year was a signature spa soap made by one of the members of the Kingston Grandmother Connection. “This is a formula just for us...It’s really nice in that it’s made with cucumber and all natural products,” Mariotti said. The popularity of the market has grown each year, to the point where last year

people were lined up outside hoping to get first look at the items for sale. “That was really an eyeopener for us,” Mariotti said. In its six years in operation, the Kingston Grandmother Connection has raised close to $500,000 in support of the Stephen Lewis Foundation and Help Lesotho, and each year, the Market for Africa contributes between $21,000 and $25,000 towards the efforts to support African grandmothers who, as a result of their children succumbing to HIV/AIDS, are now caring for their orphaned grand-

children. “Millions have died. We have a whole generation in South Africa missing and these grannies are just such brave people,” Mariotti said. “Some of them are well into their 70s and 80s and raising kids.” Mariotti said she would love to see this year’s Market for Africa best each of the five that has come before it. In order for that to happen, they need the community’s help, so don’t miss your chance to help support African grandmothers and to pick up what Mariotti described as some “very lovely Christmas presents.”

MENDing the community So why is something like MEND so important to communities and schools? “The approach is important because people never really learn from punishment. This is an opportunity for people to really understand the premise that people don’t really mean to harm one another, certainly young people don’t. We really just need to reach people at a different level. If we reach them at a heart level, where they understand the impact that they have on another person and how they made them feel, then that is what they will maybe remember another time,â€? said Tetlow. This approach is especially helpful considering the number of conict situations students deal with everyday. “I think this approach is important to schools now more than ever because of technology. The way technology impacts students’ social lives just gives more opportunities for conict. There is now cyber bullying to be worried about and students can be affected not just in the schools but also outside of it, making new ways to deal with conict even more necessary,â€? added Ellsworth. For more information on MEND visit www.youthdiversion.org

EMC Correspondent

EMC News - Conict amongst students, young or old, has always been a problem in schools, and dealing with these conicts appropriately and effectively has always been a challenge. Judy Tetlow and Shawn Quigley, intervention specialists with the Youth Diversion Program in Kingston, hope to help with their new approach to conict called MEND (Mediating Ends Negative Disagreements). The Limestone District School Board and Youth Diversion have been working together for the past six years to develop a new strategy to deal with conict. “What we have been doing is putting a restorative approach into schools with the idea that, rather than focusing on blame and punishment we are focusing on developing and maintaining relationships and making sure that people understand the impact of their actions on one another,â€? explained Tetlow. Tetlow has been working with the school board to train staff on this new approach. “One of the things we’ve been asked for in doing this is some sort of video with scenarios that show this approach. We had originally put out a video on the mending

circle, which shows more intense scenarios, but what we needed to do was a video on our quick conversations approach,â€? said Tetlow. On Tuesday, Oct. 23, MEND celebrated the completion of this video project, which was entirely produced by students. “Most of the students that did the technical work were Grade 9 students. It is quite phenomenal what they have achieved. We now have video copies of the approach that have gone to every school in the board and are available for teachers and students to view. This will allow them to see how the process works and how it should work through examples,â€? added Tetlow. One of the students who worked on the project was Hannah Ellsworth. “I decided to participate because I think that conict resolution is something that needs to be addressed a lot more in schools. I personally know someone who had a falling out with another student in Grade 4 and it actually led to situational depression. If we had an approach like MEND then, I think it could have been easily avoided. We had some programs, but we didn’t have anything like this approach at the time and I think it is something that needs to be spread to more schools,â€? said Ellsworth.

City seeks ‘sustainable’ options for money-losing Belle Park golf course Reporter

EMC News – Belle Park Fairways may be down in the dumps, but it’s not out of the golfing business just yet. Several councillors have jumped to the defence of the city-owned 9-par course, despite mounting deficits and declining memberships. “There needs to be more understood here,” says Coun. Rob Hutchison, whose district includes part of the Montreal Street golf club. Staff will explore ways to make the sprawling green space profitable, including eliminating golfing from the list of civic services and developing more financially “sustainable” options such as a solar farm. Their revenue generating report is due back at council in about one month, just in time for the 2013 budget talks. But, in approving a review of the scenarios, councillors also made it clear that any future uses of Belle Park needs to respect and protect “recreational uses of the park.” They also want scenarios that involve keeping the golf course open through new, and presumably cheaper, management initiatives. City officials say they will also unveil hybrid options that include a mix of recreational and revenue opportunities that can share the same park space. Coun. Hutchison believes there are other reasons why Kingston’s only municipal golf course is losing money year after year. “This seems to speak to poor management,” he suggested. He says better marketing and a more aggressive membership drive could improve the golf course’s outlook.

Community services commissioner Lanie Hurdle, whose portfolio oversees recreation, identified three main reasons for the deficit; annual deficits, declining memberships and rising staff costs. “The main expenditure for the operation is salaries.” Hurdle’s preliminary report on the status of Belle Park, a former civic landfill site, seemed to catch many politicians by surprise. The report revealed; the golf course has operated in a deficit position since 2006 and required a tax subsidy of $200,000 in 2011, membership declined by 30 percent in the past few years to just 171 members this year, green fees are 15-59 percent below other local golf courses that are privately owned, and the city should spend at least $1.25 million in short-term capital improvements to make the course safer and more functional. Mayor Mark Gerretsen observed that golfing in general may be in decline across the city. “I definitely don’t have the time anymore,” he remarked. Coun. Rick Downes says Belle Park is worth saving because it gives many golfers a low cost alternative. “Private courses charge much more than Belle Park.” Belle Park, located on the banks of the Cataraqui River, served as the city’s dump for decades until it closed 40 years ago. It was transformed into a public golf course in 1975. It currently has two full-time employees, plus students who operate the course and adjacent driving range. The site also has tennis and basketball courts and some walking trails, and is used for summer day camps and clinics for youth.

The holiday season is synonymous with many things, including spending. Opening a Christmas Club account is one way shoppers exercise some financial savvy during the holiday season. According to survey from the American Research Group, the average family spends between $700 and $900 on Christmas gifts in a given year. Roughly 1.5 percent of the family budget is devoted to holiday giving. This doesn't factor in the additional expenses of food and entertaining, as well as travel and miscellaneous holiday necessities. The American Consumer Credit Council indicates that the average American carries credit card debt of roughly $8,562, and holiday spending can add to that already heavy burden. Setting aside funds for Christmas can help cut down on any additional debt from holiday giving. It helps to budget for the added gifts, decorations and food that make the holidays festive. Savings clubs have been offered through banks and other organizations for decades. It's never too early to establish a Christmas savings account, and most people like to get started right at the beginning of the new year. Although Christmas clubs have traditionally been offered through credit unions and savings banks, third-party organizations, including retailers, also offer these types of savings accounts. Such accounts may accrue a small amount of interest, and unlike accounts established with banks, the money saved must be spent with the particular retailer holding the account. The Better Business Bureau advises that Christmas

clubs are good ways to budget and help avoid holiday debt. Here are their suggestions when establishing an account. * Build a budget. Consider how much you spent in the previous holiday season to help determine how much you want to set aside every month. * Start saving now. The sooner you start setting aside money every month, the better. By setting up a club account in January or February, you'll benefit more from the interest rate and start the year off on the right foot. * Shop around. While the interest rates on these accounts are typically not very high, they can vary, so shop around for the best deal. * Read the fine print. Christmas clubs are essentially short-term savings accounts, but there are a few details that make them different. In some cases, there might be a minimum required deposit to open the account or a minimum amount you must deposit every month. In addition, there is often a financial penalty for withdrawing the funds before the holiday shopping season arrives. * Automate the process. Many Christmas club accounts allow for monthly automatic deductions of the amount of money you determine from your bank account or paycheck. This helps lessen the pinch. Just make sure that you don't set aside so much that you run the risk of overdrawing on your accounts. Christmas clubs can be yet another financing tool that individuals use to help offset the additional expenses of the holiday season.

Travel easily with kids in tow checking in ahead of time can save you from waiting in long check-in lines at the airport. * Confirm what you're allowed to bring on board. Parents of very young children, be it infants or toddlers, should confirm what they're allowed to pack and bring on board in advance of their flight. Sterilized water, for instance, might be acceptable to bring on board, but the airline might insist that it be stored in a baby bottle. Contact the airline a few days before you plan to pack to learn the company's guidelines. Different airlines might have slightly different guidelines. * Explore the airport. Depending on if you will be flying a domestic or international flight, you might be spending a considerable amount of time waiting to board or even dealing with a layover. These waiting periods and layovers are boring for adults and kids alike, so use the airport to your advantage and go exploring. Kids are often fascinated by airplanes, so take them to gates or terminals where flights are about to depart. * Separate kids on the plane. If you have two or more children in tow, avoid seating them next to one another on the plane. This can lead to spats that will almost certainly upset your fellow passengers. Let Mom sit with one child and Dad with another, and give kids the window seat so they can entertain themselves by looking out the window when the plane is in flight. * Bring your own entertainment. Kids are going to get bored on the flight, so

Many people enjoy traveling. The opportunity to spend free time experiencing other cultures or visiting faraway lands appeals to many people's inquisitive and adventurous natures, and it's no wonder retirees often devote so much time traveling the world. Yet traveling as a carefree retiree and traveling as a parent to young children are two entirely different things; and parents' love of travel is often put to the test when the kids are in tow. But traveling with kids doesn't have to be a logistical nightmare. The following are a few travel tips for parents about to go on vacation with their little ones. * Check your flight status. Flights are commonly rescheduled, which can be inconvenient for adult travelers who don't have a couple of kids tagging along. For parents, though, extra time waiting at the airport with kids can be stressful and tough to handle. Before leaving the house, check your flight status to ensure you won't be spending extra time sitting and waiting at the airport and looking for things to quell your child's boredom. When booking the flight, sign up for flight updates that are sent directly to your mobile phone. These will keep you posted and save you the hassle of going online and checking your flight status every few hours. * Check in ahead of time. Many airlines allow passengers to check in ahead of time, typically within 24 to 36 hours of the flight's scheduled departure. When kids are coming along, the less time you spend in line at the airport the better, and

Because of you, we have access to leading research and education Since its incorporation in 2005, the University Hospitals Kingston Foundation has been delivering on its mission to enable our community to support excellence in patient care, teaching and research at the university hospitals of Kingston through raising funds and awareness. Because of the generosity of more than 40,000 people, organizations and businesses in our region, UHKF has raised almost $80 million in cash and pledges to support capital redevelopment, patient care, research and education at our hospitals. UHKF fundraising supports priorities that are defined by Hotel Dieu Hospital, Kingston General Hospital and Providence Care. Though the solicitation of gifts has not been focused on specific priorities, UHKF accepts restricted gifts to all areas of patient care, research and education within any of the three hospitals and ensures that the restrictions attached to gifts are complied with in the use of the funds. Last week we shared a few examples of how equipment purchased through donations makes a difference from examples our of our Because of You Community Report. This week we change our focus to education and research. As a university centre, research is an important activity not only for advancing new techniques and technologies, but also to ensure we are able to attract the best and brightest clinicians to Kingston. “Research is where the answers are going to come from. That’s where the treatments of the future are going to derive - from researchers such as myself and many others. It’s an investment in the future for new understanding of disease, new treatments and ultimately, for better patient care.” – Dr. Anne Ellis A new initiative in support of research was

launched by UHKF this year, called the Women’s Giving Circle. It is a group of community women of diverse backgrounds and interests who know that we are able to do more together than as individuals, and desire to have a real and sustainable impact on health care at our hospitals. The members believe that there is incredible potential being nurtured in our medical research community and understand that without base funding, many important research projects are challenged to move past the concept and design phase to implementation and impact.

Chuckles is a four-monthold, male Bulldog/Australian Shepherd mix. He is as sweet and adorable as his name suggests. This pup is full of energy and always ready to play! He is definitely a dog that would like to snuggle up to you on the couch. Pay him a visit at the shelter today.

As this region’s teaching and research hospitals, staff education is very important in ensuring our staff has up-to-date expertise and skills that help people across Southeastern Ontario. Funds to support education of staff take many forms, such as bursaries and awards to support continuing education or outright clinical education. They also fund conferences and other outside events where staff can learn everything from the latest medication to care trends. “Without those dollars, our educator wouldn’t be able to run a course that has allowed not just our nurses, but anyone wanting to know how to work with and empathize with palliative care patients – it’s completely funded because of donation dollars.” – Marie-Jo Cleghorn, RN

Maximus is a two-year-old, male New Zealand rabbit. This is a happy go lucky guy enjoys roaming in open spaces and is relaxed enough to sprawl out on the floor and go to sleep. He has made friends with many dogs and cats here at the shelter, so come check him out.

The University Hospitals Kingston Foundation is the fundraising arm for Hotel Dieu Hospital, Kingston General Hospital and Providence Care. Created in 2005, the Foundation raises money for programs, equipment, education and research that benefit the 500,000 people in Kingston and Southeastern Ontario served by the three teaching hospitals. Miles is a sweet and calm male Beagle Retreiver/Lab mix. He is very gentle and loving. He would make a great dog for a family.

How to select the right carpeting for your home Although many people may tout the benefits of hardwood flooring over carpeting, there are plenty of individuals who like to have the soft and luxurious feeling of carpeting underfoot. Selecting the right carpeting for a particular room and purpose can be a bit daunting because of the abundance of available colors and materials. According to the Carpet and Rug Institute, carpeting is an added safety measure that makes play areas safer, potentially lessening the severity of an injury in the event of a fall. This is why carpeting is often preferred in children's rooms and play areas. There are other advantages to carpeting as well. It can help insulate rooms both in the summer and winter. It can be easier on feet than a hard floor, and few materials absorb sound better than carpet. Choosing the right carpeting for a room comes down to identifying the kind of foot traffic you expect in your home and which carpeting options most suit your needs. Here are some tips to get started. * Don't overlook padding. Padding can make the difference in the way carpeting feels and how long it lasts. The thickest or most expensive padding isn't necessarily the best or the best-suited for your home. However, it is wise to pick a pad that matches the type of carpeting you're selecting. You may be able to go with a thinner pad in low-traffic rooms and under dense carpeting like berber. In high-traffic rooms, choose thicker, more time durable padLimited offer! ding. Padding prevents carpet backing and fibers from

coming apart over a duration of time, so if you're spending a lot on the carpet, it pays to invest in a padding that will last the duration of the carpet as well. * Recognize the type of carpeting that best suits your needs. There are many different types of carpeting, and they won't all be the perfect match for your home. For example, plush and saxony carpets are better in low-traffic areas. These carpets may show footprints and also vacuum tracks and dirt. Berber, meanwhile, is more flat and dense, making it highly effective at masking stains and tracks. Textured carpets like frieze are cut from fibers of different heights, so they mask stains and are also softer on the feet than berbers. An entryway or a den may be better off carpeted in a dense carpeting, while a bedroom may be fine and luxurious with plush carpeting. Carpeting may come in stainresistant varieties or lowmaintenance options. These are generally best in homes with pets and children. However, you may be able to save money by opting out of special treatments to resist stains and simply invest in a steam vacuum, instead. * Choose color wisely. Choosing a color comes down to preference and how much the room will be used. Although light, neutral colors are often preferred because they work well in just about any room, lighter colored carpets will show stains much more easily than other carpet colors. Textured, multi-colored carpets are preferable to hide stains and can look just as elegant as solid-colored carpeting. Much in the way paint colors are chosen, car-

peting colors come down to personal preference. Drama may be created with bold colors that draw the eye to the carpet. However, for those who want the carpet to fade into the background instead of upstaging decor, neutral colors are better. * Hire a good installer. There are many beautiful carpets available, but unless you choose a reliable installer and store, you may end up paying more or receiving subpar service. Poll friends and family members for recommendations to help you narrow down options. Then be sure to have stores price out materials separate from installation so you can make more accurate comparisons. Also, you don't necessarily need to use an installer provided by the carpet store. You can shop around to find a separate installer or even do the work yourself. Carpeting can make a fine addition to your home and make it feel more comfortable and inviting. Remember to take your time when selecting carpeting, as your decision will have long-lasting effects.

After her year at the castle, she transferred to Queen’s for her remaining undergrad years. “I loved the Queen’s drama department,” she said. “It was a liberal arts education that involved academic, theoretic and practical learning. When I first arrived in second year, I felt a little intimidated. It felt like everyone had been doing drama since they were two years old.” After graduating from Queen’s, Corcoran worked at Tarragon Theatre for two years. In 2003, she was awarded a Theatre Ontario Professional Theatre Training Grant and mentored at the Shaw Festival. In 2005, she joined New York City’s Lincoln Center Theater Directors Lab. That same year, she co-founded Theatre Smash in Toronto, but the first show wasn’t produced until 2006. “We wanted to build a solid foundation, including getting charitable status, creating a strong vision and mandate, and being supported by a board of direc-

She directed The Bear in the 2006/07 season. Also in 2007, she was guest artist at Goethe-Institut in Berlin, in a fourmonth directing residency at Maxim Gorki Theater. Three years ago, she took part in the Shaw Festival Neil Munro Intern Directors Project.

The list of credentials goes on. After 2007, until her current role, she worked as a freelance director of opera and theatre and continued serving as Artistic Producer of Theatre Smash. She received a UK Government Chevening Scholarship to study in England at Goldsmiths College of the University of London. “So I went back to England,” she said. It was a productive time for her. She completed her

Merrickville: historic, funky, and a tad anarchistic Mark Bergin Columnist mbergin@theemc.ca

EMC Lifestyle - The word idyllic, used with annoying frequency in travel brochures to describe distant locations, is a perfect moniker for the town of Merrickvile. There are good reasons it’s called the jewel of the Rideau. Once you’ve visited, you’ll understand why the town was awarded the title of Canada’s Prettiest Village by Communities in Bloom in 1998. Merrickville was settled in 1793 by William Merrick, who was attracted by the available water power. He built a dam along with a sawmill and carding mill. When the Rideau Canal was built in the early 1800s, Merrick’s Mills, as it was known at the time, was quite an industrial centre. But with the coming of the railway in the later 1800s, Smiths Falls took prominence over Merrickville, which was dependent on water transportation. The locks remain today. They’re a beautiful part of the town’s landscape. Merrickville remains a popular water spot. In addition to the locks, the bridges in the town have their own appeal. The most fascinating is the swing bridge over the upper lock. Unlike Kingston’s bridge, which swings up and down, along the LaSalle Causeway over the Cataraqui River, Merrickville’s bridge swings

to the side to allow boats to pass through. The bridge is located adjacent to the town’s crossroads of St. Lawrence and Main. Many of the town’s buildings from its early days are still standing. The Baldachin Inn at the corner of St. Lawrence and Main Streets was built in 1860 and once housed the largest department store between Montreal and Chicago. It would be a good idea to keep your head up while visiting Merrickville. It’s not that there’s the risk of anything falling on you. But, if you don’t look skyward, you might miss something wonderful, the shop signs. Most are handmade. Each is unique. This town is artistic to the core. There are unique shop names throughout the town— “Whistle Post Antiques,” “A Touch of Whimsy,” “Knock Knock Shop,” “Pottery by Boz,” and “Country Bumpkins,” to name a few. Make sure to stop in at Anarchy Gallery at 147 St. Lawrence Street, the main east/west artery through Merrickville. You’ll find some remarkable art by Angelina Wrona, and you might have a chance to meet the artist. Wrona creates quirky stuff, and I love quirky. Her paintings are inspired by American portraiture combined with Japanese animation. Like much pop surrealism, this sounds weird and messed up, and it is. In all the right ways. It has somewhat of a Rocky Horror Gothic-type mood. In addition to art, there are apparel and accessories on site. Formerly a registered nurse, Wrona found herself overwhelmed and conflicted by the touching and tragic situations in her medical ca-

reer. Needless to say, some of the same conflicts, along with humour (which is in itself healing), are evident in her art. Kevin Robert Gray, a glassblower, is located at 634 St. Lawrence Street. His work combines precious metals and recycled crystal glass. Outside of Merrickville, his glass art can be found in private, corporate, government and museum collections. Grotto Artworks, at 110 Main Street East (part of the Baldachin Inn building), features the works of several artists. In 2005, more than ten artists and artisans created this artists’ cooperative. Pottery, jewellery, hemp garments and woodturnings, and original works of art are on display and for sale in Grotto Artworks. Hart’s Pottery and Gourds, with art by Claudette Hart, featured in a recent Enchanté column, is located at 132 Bruce Street. Scores of other shops will entice and welcome you. You shouldn’t have trouble finding a place to dine or snack. The Village Bean at 205 St. Lawrence Street serves coffee, tea and juice. You can also grab things like muffins, fresh-baked pie, cinnamon buns, Belgian waffles, soups and chilli. For a more upscale sit-

It features one of Canada’s few remaining Heritage-designated interiors, with original stained glass, overlooking the Rideau Canal. Also on the Baldachin site is Harry McLean’s Pub with the usual pub fare. Down the street at 317 St. Lawrence is the Goose and Gridiron English Country Pub. The interior is designed to look like an 1856 pub. If it’s a cold day, you can enjoy the warmth from their fireplace. They also have a children’s menu. Readers of this column may want to give me a good swat in the back of the head

for even mentioning the following on the first day of November: I know there are those who, like me, detest the hordes of Christmas shoppers slithering through stores in December. If you don’t mind the slight anachronistic sense of doing your Yuletide shopping long before Christmas, Merrickville provides an ideal location to do it now. And, at this time of year, the summer tourist crowds are gone. The choice of gifts and treasures available in the town shops is almost limitless. There are lots of oneof-a-kind and unusual items for a special person in your life. I’m planning on going back for a whole day with a

shopping list for those who deserve something unique and creative. When you need a break from quaint, the historic locks are nearby, within two or three blocks of all the main shops in town. There is lots of parkland, which makes for a refreshing autumn getaway. Directions: Take Highway 15 north to Smiths Falls. In Smiths Falls, when you reach the bridge crossing the Rideau, go straight through the lights rather than turning left. Follow this road until you reach Highway 43. This takes you to Merrickville.

Junior arborists participate in Local Government Week By: Olivia Taugher, Ella Van Hal, Jordan Gray, Megan Breen, Stephen O’Meara, Madeleine Quirk, and Chailynn Cameron.

EMC News - On Oct. 18 arborists from Western Landscape Services came to St. Paul Catholic School to talk to the students in Mr. Stevens’ Grade 5/6 class about how we can use trees to help our city. They helped us plant a tree at our school. They talked about air quality, soil, water, noise levels, utility cost and energy benefits, property values, and recreational places. The arborists are trying to help us learn about helping our planet by saving more trees so we won’t have to use as much

energy. After studying trees for about an hour we went outside to plant a tree. The tree is a Maple Tree. It is about 10-12 feet tall. We used shovels to dig a hole (which has to be bigger than the tree), then put the tree in the ground, covered it in dirt, and put mulch around it. Lastly, we put a fence around the tree. It was hard work putting that tree in the ground, but that tree is going to do well there. Trees are important, more than we realize. They help us breathe, keep us cool, clean the air, and more. The arborists from Western Landscape Services taught us that trees are more important than we thought. They were the

best people to tell us too. After all, it is their job to climb trees! Joel, one of the arborists, even played guitar and sang us a song about trees and Canada. Before they left, the arborists gave each of us our own Spruce Sapling. We went home and talked to our parents about trees and planted our saplings in our yards. On Friday Oct. 19 our class, along with others in the city, was invited to City Hall as part of ‘Local Government Week’. We were greeted by the City Clerk who told us some stories and about the history of City Hall. One of the City Councillors also talked to us. In the morning there were Police, Fire, and City

Transit vehicles parked in Market Square that we got to sit in and talk to the people who work there. One of the great parts of the trip to City Hall was that we got to learn about the way our city works and how it used to be before we even lived here. We got to see Sir John A Macdonald’s desk that he used when he was a lawyer. The scariest part of the trip was visiting the dungeon where

there are wax figures and we saw scary jail cells!! We also got free pizza and juice boxes. One disappointing part of the trip was that Mayor Gerretsen didn’t come. We thought he was going to be there to speak to with us but we were told he had another appointment. The part that was most fun was visiting the City Council room. Twelve students were selected to be

city councillors and got to sit around the horseshoe desk in Council Chambers. One student was selected to be mayor and we debated whether or not recess should be extended an extra 30 minutes across Kingston. In the end, we decided that it should. Thanks very much to City Hall, especially Ms. Amini, who did lots of work to let us visit. Overall the trip was a blast.

Western Canada Theatre’s 25 th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. In January, she knew she had the director’s job at Thousand Islands Playhouse and, by summer, was spending time there. “Greg’s been very generous all summer,” she said. “I don’t want to take any sharp turns with the Playhouse. There has been much growth over 30 years, and I want to build on the strengths that are there.” Corcoran is planning on promoting new play development. She said the Playhouse will host a Playwright’s Unit. “I’ll meet with a handful of local playwrights once a month,” she said. “We’ll be working on a script, which, to start, may only be an idea. I want to work on something that would work well on either of our stages. These meetings will culminate in a one day workshop of each script. In the evening, there will be a public reading. The playwright will get to hear questions from actors and an audience.” The following year will involve further workshops at a more intensive level. In the third year, one of the plays will have its world premier at the Thousand Islands Playhouse. Meanwhile, each year, a new series of play development

will begin. If it sounds like a daunting task, it is. But this is a director who doesn’t shy from challenges. Another area where Corcoran would like to see growth is in outreach and education in the Young Company tours. “It’s not just the show,” she said. “There’s the educational added value. We’ll offer hands-on workshops for the students who are there. This fosters an interest in drama, but also promotes literacy, selfawareness and self-confidence, skills that can be transferred to other areas of their lives.” She explained that drama provides an opportunity to learn diverse life skills. “For example, if students see No Great Mischief and work with actors on things like public speaking and movement, they are gaining self-confidence,” she said. “The point isn’t to get the whole generation into acting, it’s to get them excited about shared human stories while learning skills that are useful in any walk of life.” She hopes to promote a student matinee cultural experience. Saltwater Moon and No Great Mischief offer superb opportunities. “These plays resonate with young people, and they fit within the high school curriculum.” She’s seen first-hand the powerful impact theatre has

on young people. In October, she attended a performance of Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler at the Old Vic theatre in England. Surrounded by about 40 teenaged girls. Corcoran wondered if they’d be texting and talking during the show. “That was the best part of the trip,” she sad. “The girls were amazing. The actress’s interpretation of Hedda Gabler was as a young woman who was controlling, beautiful, popular, but also sympathetic. The girls were connected to what they saw on stage. They recognized themselves, friends, and maybe even enemies. Though I discovered that they knew the play script, they were receiving it fresh. It was an inspiration to me, because here was this play written in the late 1800s in Norway, and these girls were gasping, crying, recognizing it.” She said that drama is a way of connecting human beings to each other and common human experiences. “It’s different from movies,” she said. “In theatre the beating heart is right in front of you.”

mediately, road debris and weather conditions can put small dings and scratches into the lenses over time. These small damages can add up to covers that look dingy and dull. Cloudiness also occurs as the result of exposure to ultraviolet light. Although newer cars have lenses that are supposed to resist scratching and damage, some dulling may occur. There are many headlight cleaning kits on the market that are quite effective at restoring the lenses to their original glory. Most of these kits use a series of buffers and polishers to gently buff out scratches and rid the headlights of oxidation. Because headlight lens replacement may cost upwards of $200 per lens, the kits are much more cost effective. A car owner can also perform similar maintenance with just a few items from the hardware store and automotive shop. Employ incremental grits of sandpaper to clean the headlights without causing further damage. In addition, cutting compounds and surface cleaners can be applied with electric buffers to clean the sandpaper grit and any other debris caught in the headlights. Plastic polishers can further increase the shine of the headlights and make them look new. The key to keeping headlights looking their best is to be on top of any damage taking place. Handling minor cloudiness is much easier than a complete headlight overhaul. Routinely inspect the headlights and check for damage.

Headlights serve to improve visibility during nighttime driving conditions and inclement weather. They help drivers see and be seen by other motorists. When headlights are dull and cloudy, they can prove to be a safety hazard on the road. Fortunately, there are ways to restore headlights to their full effectiveness. Driving during the day is easier than driving at night, when vision is easily compromised. A humanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s visual field is much smaller in the dark, and it can be harder to spot road hazards, animals or people when driving at night. An improperly lit driving area can make it much more difficult to see. It also impairs othersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ability to see your vehicle coming and going. The National Institute for Traffic and Highway Safety says the No. 1 reason for severe nighttime accidents and reduced driving safety is dim or cloudy and improperly lit headlights. Also, the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety has found that nearly 4 out of 5 drivers drive with improperly lit headlights. There are a few different reasons for poor headlight illumination. In many instances, the headlight lamp has burned out and the light is no longer working. Old bulbs may dim and fail to provide the same level of illumination as they once did. Oxidized and cloudy headlight coverings are also a known contributor to diminished headlight function. Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s headlight lenses are made from plastic. While it may not be visible im-

What Would a Cure Mean to you Living with diabetes the amount of insulin required. Too much insulin can result in plummeting blood sugar levels, which could lead to coma or even death. Not enough insulin can cause blood sugars to spike. When this happens ketones can develop in the blood, which can result in diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA); a potentially life-threatening situation. If ignored or not properly managed, diabetes can also lead to serious complications such as heart attack, stroke, blindness, kidney failure or limb amputations. Great athletes like Olympic gold medal swimmer Gary Hall, baseball great Ron Santo, and hockey star Bobby Clarke all have diabetes. Regular kids like Trey Wannamaker and Caleb Maggiacomo also live healthy and productive lives. Trey was only eight years old when he was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. At thirteen, he plays soccer for Kingston United and loves almost all sports. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just a normal kid, but I have a few extra rules to follow,â&#x20AC;? said Trey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Diabetes gets

Trey Wannamaker and Caleb Maggiacomo donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go to the same school, they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t related, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not the same age, but they share a strong connection Trey and Caleb live with the same life threatening disease; they have type 1 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is often misunderstood. Trey and Caleb have heard it all, kids who think they must have eaten too much sugar, adults wonder how they could have diabetes when they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t overweight and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re both so active. The truth is, there are two primary types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Often diagnosed in childhood, type 1 diabetes is a disease in which the pancreas does not produce insulin causing sugars to build up in the blood instead of being used for energy. People with type 1 diabetes control their blood sugar levels with insulin injections several times a day. Before each injection, a needle is used to prick their finger to test blood sugar. This is necessary to regulate

in the way, because every time my blood sugar goes low, I have to stop and test my blood.

Caleb Maggiacomo is 11 years old and was diagnosed last year. Caleb takes four insulin injections each day; two in the morning, one at dinner and another one at bedtime. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I was first diagnosed, I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t scared about having it,â&#x20AC;? said Caleb, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was however worried that I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go out with my friends. It is a bit scary when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m playing soccer at school. If I pass out, I could be lying there and people wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what to do.â&#x20AC;? Both boys are Ambassadors for Camp Banting, one of the Canadian Diabetes Associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s12 D-Camps for kids with type 1 diabetes.

Ambassadors for Camp Banting (Left) Caleb Maggiacomo and (Right) Trey Wannamaker â&#x20AC;&#x153;Camp is the one place where Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m always included,â&#x20AC;? Trey commented. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Diabetes isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t strange. Everyone, including the councillors, lifeguards and even some of the nurses and doctors have diabetes. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d think we would sit around and talk about diabetes and how horrible it is, but we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Camp is actually a break from all these questions. Camp is the highlight of

my summer and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m always sad to leave.â&#x20AC;? Caleb agreed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Camp is great. The nurses are really nice and so respectful. They check my doses, so I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get too much insulin and they tell me how much I need. I really like the showers too. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find showers in a lot of camps. And the councillors are great. They always ask me if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m feeling

sick or if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m ok. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a lot of fun too.â&#x20AC;? Camp Banting is a special place where kids can just be kids while building their confidence in a safe environment.

What Would a Cure Mean to you November is Diabetes Diabetes: take action now to protect yourself Awareness Month: What would a cure mean to you? and your family are many steps you can take to protect yourself. Lifestyle changes can dramatically reduce your risk and keep you healthy. And for those living with diabetes, healthy behaviors can help prevent complications. So, get informed and get started! What is diabetes? Diabetes is a chronic, often debilitating and sometimes fatal disease in which the body either cannot produce insulin or cannot properly use the insulin it produces. This leads to high levels of glucose in the blood, which can damage organs, blood vessels and nerves. The body needs insulin to convert glucose into an energy source. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that occurs when the pancreas no longer produces any insulin or produces very little insulin. Type 2 diabetes is a disease

that occurs when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin to meet the bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needs and/or the body is not able to respond properly to the actions of insulin (insulin resistance). Gestational diabetes is first diagnosed or first develops during pregnancy. Blood glucose levels usually return to normal following delivery, but both mother and child are at higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes later in life. Prediabetes refers to a condition where a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blood glucose levels are higher than normal, but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as type 2 diabetes. Fifty per cent of people with prediabetes go on to develop the disease. For more information about diabetes, call 1-800BANTING (226-8464) or visit www.diabetes.ca

With more than ninemillion Canadians living with diabetes or prediabetes, chances are, many Canadians know someone living with the disease. To mark Diabetes Awareness Month, the Canadian Diabetes Association is introducing the â&#x20AC;&#x153;What a Cure Means to Meâ&#x20AC;? Campaign. The goal?To give a voice to people living with diabetes in communities all over the country. Getting involved in the Campaign is easy. Visit whatacuremeans2me.comto register, and post a story from October 10 to November 30, 2012, to be eligible to win a dream vacation or other exciting prizes. Family and friends can show their support by sharing posted stories with their online communities

Most Canadians are aware of the dangers of chronic diseases, such as cancer and heart disease, but by 2020, one in three Canadians will have diabetes or prediabetes, so the time for action is now. The Canadian population is aging, and obesity rates are rising. Our lifestyles are increasingly sedentary. Almost 80 per cent of new Canadians come from populations that are at high risk for developing type 2 diabetes, including people of Hispanic, Asian, South Asian or African descent. Aboriginal people are three to five times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes. Currently, more than nine million Canadians are living with diabetes or prediabetes. More than 20 people are diagnosed with diabetes every hour of every day. The good news is that there

It is equally impressive to witness the tireless efforts of the volunteers and learn the impact a special place like CampBanting can have on the life of a child. As a team we look forward to continuing these efforts. As parents there is not enough thanks to offer to those who supported this event. Camp Banting provides children living with type 1

including$4,000 to send children with type 1diabetes to Camp Banting, one of a dozen camps across Canada run by the Canadian Diabetes Association. The event organizing committee is very proud of the results and the entire experience was wonderful. It was rewarding to see the generous support of the community and meet the dedicated people behind the scenes at the Canadian Diabetes Association. As a parent of a young

In January 2011, our little girl Maya Grace Emery was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Maya is certainly not the first child diagnosed with type 1 diabetes; in fact, we know there are more than three million Canadians living with diabetes, with approximately 10 per cent of those living with type 1 diabetes. When Maya was diagnosed, our lives were changed forever. Not long after Maya’s diagnosis, Team Maya’s Mission was formed by her parents, god parents, friends and family with the vision of finding a cure for type 1 diabetes. We set out to achieve this by raising funds to support diabetes research and Camp Banting. Our goal was to increase awareness of diabetes in the community, while celebrating the courage and perseverance of Maya and others with the disease. This year, with the support of our title sponsor Shoppers Drug Mart, the first annual Taking a Swinggolf tournament was held at the Brockville Golf and Country Club on July 13.Our golfers, diners, sponsors and supporting organizations such as our gold sponsor Proctor & Gamble, helped to raise awareness and funds

Diabetes Mellitus in Dogs and Cats

D

iabetes Mellitus occurs in dogs and cats from a deficiency of insulin or a lack of response to the effects of insulin. Clinical signs suggestive of diabetes in animals are an increase in thirst and urination. Weight loss, poor haircoat , weakness , cataracts, and an increased appetite may also be observed. Since other disease conditions may cause similar clinical signs, diagnostic testing is important (including bloodwork and urinalysis ) to obtain a definitive diagnosis. Diabetic animals demonstrate elevations in both blood glucose and glucose in the urine. Physical exam findings in conjunction with diagnostic testing also serve to identify other associated conditions that may be contributing to, or coexisting, with the diabetic state. This is important to direct therapeutic goals and treatment plans. Most cases of diabetes in dogs are Type I or insulin dependent. Based on physical examination and diagnostic testing, insulin type, dose, and dosing schedule are chosen. Diet and exercise are integral components in the treatment for diabetes in animals. Regular monitoring including serial blood glucose determination (glucose curves) , fructosamine blood levels ( reflects the average blood sugar over the preceding 2-3 weeks) and recheck urinalyses ( to monitor for infection as well

as glucose or ketones in the urine) are important to guide therapeutic treatment recommendations. A small proportion of cats have transient or subclinical diabetes. In these patients, the diabetic state may resolve after initiating insulin treatment or dietary changes. This warrants close monitoring of these patients to ensure no signs of hypoglycemia (too low blood sugar) are observed. Recent studies reveal that a small percentage of newly diagnosed diabetic cats on lantus or glargine insulin may revert to a non diabetic state. This non diabetic state may be transient or permanent and can be screened for based on wellness testing and clinical signs.

uting factors in the development of diabetes in animals. Fortunately, with early diagnosis, proper care and treatment, most animals can maintain a good quality of life for many years. Working closely with your primary care veterinarian will assist you in successfully managing your pets’ diabetes. Dr. Heather Sims – DVM Sims Animal Hospital 613 531 3334

Dysregulation to insulin therapy or insulin resistance may be due to concomitant disease (urinary tract infection, dental infections, Cushing’s disease (causing excessive cortisol production), pancreatitis, tumors or concurrent disease. Factors, such as, Insulin type, dosing, storage, handling, administration are also important to evaluate. Chronic complicated Diabetes arises with poor control of high blood glucose levels; a resultant ketoacidotic, dehydrated, life threatening state may ensue. It is of paramount importance to seek medical attention when a ketoacidotic crisis arises.

That is exactly what Cory Conacher is known for in the American Hockey League (AHL). Tampa Bay Lightning prospect Cory Conacher, was named the most valuable player and rookie of the year in the AHL last season. Conacher is living his dream of playing professional hockey and helped lead his team to win the Calder Cup AHL championship. An Ontario native, at 5 foot 8, 182 pounds, and born on December 14, 1989, he was always the youngest and smallest on his team. He didn’t let his size or the fact that he lives with type 1 diabetes get in the way of his hockey career. Conacher, who currently plays forward for the Syracuse Crunch the Tampa Bay Lightning’s farm team – in on his was of playing in the NHL, something that means the world to him. He already has experience in the NHL

under his belt, playing during last season’s exhibition games with the Tampa Bay Lightning. “Playing on a line with my idol, Marty St. Louis, and the amazing Steve Stamkos was crazy,” says Conacher. Conacher wears an insulin pump and continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) system to help him manage his glucose levels. “The insulin pump CGM system has helped me take some of the guesswork out. It gives me more peace of mind that my numbers are under control.” For more information on the benefits of insulin pump technology and CGM, please visit www.medtronicdiabetes.ca or call 613-295-5799 or 1-866-444-4649 * The CGM System requires the use of the MiniLink(TM) transmitter and glucose sensor (sold separately).

Fronts Cares Foundation As a hockey club, celebrating our 40th season, we understand our position in the community. Our team of players have been role models for generations of Kingston kids who dreamed of being the next Tony McKegney, Scott Arniel, Ken Linsmen, Drake Berehowsky, Brett Lindros, Andrew Raycroft, Mike Zigomanis, and Cody Alcock. As a team and an organization that is a member of the community, we also understand our position in being able to help others who need or can use our help. This hockey club has proudly helped agencies and charities across the area raise money and awareness. Last year alone, that community outreach helped raise over $50,000 for a number of local charities, including the United Way, Salvation Army, Special Olympics, the Kingston Humane Society, and numerous hockey associations and community groups.

This season, we announced the establishment of the Fronts Cares Foundation, a branch of our organization that will see our focus for community outreach connect back to the community in a more strategic effort and will help us raise funds and awareness for causes that are close to our hearts. This way, everyone involved with the Kingston Frontenacsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;from our players to our front office staffâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;have the opportunity to step up and be the role models for causes in the community that can use our help. In hockey, father-figures are important role models. Fathers are our coaches, mentors, and leaders. When Doug Gilmourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father, Don, passed away earlier this season, the whole community lost someone very special. Don Gilmour was a champion for sports in Kingston, not just hockey but also baseball. Don Gilmour was a longtime fan of the team, long before Doug

joined the organization, including the one game he served as head coach in 1987-88 season. The Kingston Frontenacs have dedicated their season in honour of Don Gilmour, and using every opportunity to raise awareness and funds to help increase education and programs for juvenile diabetes. In dedicated this season to honouring Don Gilmour, we are working closely with the Canadian Diabetes Association group in Kingston, to create something we believe resonates with what our organization is trying to achieve; raising awareness for charitable causes in the Greater Kingston Area and helping to raise their profile through this partnership. We are committing to using our place as community role models, as a team and organization, to raise funds for the Canadian Diabetes Association, specifically around type-1 diabetes.

Tag tempest tries to get ministry to listen EMC Lifestyle - A thoughtful reader wrote in with a concern she tried to take up with the Ontario Minister of Transportation recentlyâ&#x20AC;Ś â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dear Minister, Our province is unfortunately being ridiculed for its treatment of handicapped people with our Accessible Parking Permits (APP). The problem is an aggravating and frustrating one for which there may be an easy solution. I would not have known of the problem until my own mobility became impaired. I used to live in Winnipeg and recently moved back to my home province of Ontario. Thus I was driving a vehicle with an Ontario license plate but with my Manitoba handicap sticker. At grocery stores, shopping malls, and other locations, I was stopped regularly and questioned by other individuals. They wanted to know where I got my handicap placard which hangs from my rear

view mirror. In seeing my Ontario license plate, they assumed that the handicap sticker was also from Ontario. They then regaled me with their complaints that their Ontario permit (a piece of laminated paper) had to be placed on the dashboard and, when the window was open, it sometimes flew out the window and they lost it - or that they used rubber bands to tie it to the sun visor but then they must remember each time they park to lower the visor or else they get fined several hundred dollars. In summary, the complaints were about the design and poor quality of the Ontario handicap permit and the desire to have one similar to those provided in other provinces and states. Could the Province of Ontario not provide disabled parking placards which can hang from rear view mirrors or else decals which could be affixed to the car license? For this, they might charge a minor fee which could yield

Car Counsellor Brian Turner

are many applicants, (minor children, seniors) who neither drive nor own vehicles but still require and qualify for permits. They added that this provides for family members, friends or service providers to take the permit with them when they are providing transportation to someone with a disability. They also indicated the laminated permit has security features and is in fact quite durable. Affixing it to the sun visor or placing it on the dashboard protects the personal and identifying information on the reverse side of the permit. If the permit was hanging from the rear-view mirror, identifying information about the permit holder

substantial revenue for the department. It also would relieve handicapped individuals of parking grief and problems related to poorly designed permits. I urge you to give this problem serious attention and to alleviate this problem created by your department. Thank you sincerely, JS Kingston The Ontario government responded to our reader with a statement to the effect that the placement of the permit and the info it contains are governed by legislation and that a removable permit was chosen because there

would be visible through the windshield and/or the side windows. Additionally, they wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t suggest suspending the permit from the rear-view mirror as it would obstruct the driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s view of traffic. Our reader tried to reason with the Ministry that private personal information did not have to appear on the permit but could be simply tied to a serialized number on the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s data-base. They also offered the fact that many jurisdictions currently use a mirror tag without any worry about impairing visibility through the windshield. When I contacted the MTO they passed my inquiry to Service Ontario and the response I got from them was simply a carbon copy of what they sent to our reader. It could be reasonably argued that a shiny laminated sheet of paper laid on the dash of a vehicle can provide just as much vision impairment (if not more) than a suitablysized permit tag hanging

from the rear-view mirror. And on some vehicles with a dark band of window tinting at the top of the windshield the permit might not be completely visible if left attached to the sunvisor. But judging from the response received from Service Ontario, they are firmly stuck in reverse and not interested in a logical improvement to this issue. If you have any questions, opinions, or stories on anything automotive please drop me a line, [By email to emc@perfprint.ca or directly to bjoeturner@ hotmail.com listing â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Question for the Car Counselorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on the subject line or by post to Record News Communications, 5 Lorne St., P.O.

EMC Entertainment - Generally, plays are about three hours long with several acts, but what if a play could only be 2560 minutes in length and only one act? This is the challenge that playwrights, actors, and directors face with the One-Act Play Festival, a festival put on by the Eastern Ontario Drama League each year. This year, Kingston’s own Domino Theatre plays host to the festival. “The festival is held in a different theatre every year across Eastern Ontario, and theatres volunteer to host it,” explained Lily Baird, president of the Eastern Ontario Drama League (EODL). “Theatre groups volunteer to participate and it is first come first serve. We only have room for nine plays.” Lily’s husband, Robert Baird, is also an active member of the EODL and explained the appeal of the festival. “The festival is designed to give smaller theatre groups, that only have a limited number of resources to draw on, an opportunity to participate in a festival where they get judged and told how they can improve. It gives them a chance to learn and maybe further along they will be able to compete against the larger and more well-established theatre groups.” The festival takes place Nov. 9-11. Three plays will take the stage each day. “By doing the three play blocks, you can get quite the variety in plays over the course of the night or afternoon. You could get a drama, a comedy and a mystery all in one evening,” added Robert. The time period between the plays can also be quite entertaining for guests. Play groups are only allowed 10 minutes to bring in their setup and five minutes to get everything off the stage when it is over. “There is an intermission and some of the audience likes to go out and have a drink and chat, but there are quite a few that just stay in the auditorium and watch the scurrying. It is entertainment itself,” said Robert. This year, included in the festival is Remembrance, a play by Kingston playwright Ned Dickens and directed by Gord Love. The play is centred around Shakespeare’s Sonnet 30, which is all about remembering. The play, which has already received some high praise, has been part of the Library Chronicles for the past three weeks and will now be restaged for this festival. “The play, I’ve been told, is really quite moving and comforting. Ned did a great job and has actually created a play with 15 sonnets within it. One of them is Shakespeare’s and the rest are his own. It is really quite beautiful,” said Love. Following the three blocks of plays, guests are invited to an awards brunch on Sunday, Nove. 11. “We present trophies of

various sizes and descriptions that have been donated by theatre groups or people that are very involved in theatre. Awards are given for various honours including best production, director, actor and actress, “explained Robert. There is also a people’s choice award that spectators can vote on after they see each play. Tickets for the festival are $20 for each group of three plays, or $55 for the entire festival. Tickets include admittance to an after-show Green Room with light buffet. Tickets for Sunday’s awards brunch are $30. Visit www.dominotheatre. com or call 613 530 2050 for more info.

MY TAKE

No clouded Pat judgment, this fi lm Trew is a masterpiece My Take By mARK HAsKins

EMC Entertainment Cloud Atlas is one of the most ambitious films I’ve seen. The depth and breadth of its story staggers the mind. Its scope brushes against the sublime. Its vision will haunt you long after the credits have faded.

Canada Jack

nursing home by his brother Denholme Cavendish (Hugh Grant). In the distant future we watch a clone, Sonmi 451 (Doona Bae), with the help of Hae-Joo Chang (Jim Sturgess) learn the truth of existence, and begin a revolution. And in the very distant future as the last vestiges of humanity struggle to survive we witness Zachry (Tom Hanks) and Meronym (Halle Berry) find hope. Each soul is connected. Each one shapes the others. A single act of kindness will eventually become a rebellion, and a killer will become a hero.

MOVIE: Cloud Atlas STARRING: Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent, Doona Bae, Jim Sturgess, Hugo Weaving, Ben Whishaw, James D’arcy, Susan Sarandon, and Hugh Grant DIRECTORS: Tom Tykwer, Lana Wachowski and Andy Wachowski RATING: 14A By JoHn tUcKER

There’s no way to summarize this film in a few short paragraphs. I can tell you it takes place over the course of a number of lifetimes and across centuries. It’s about the good and evil inside all of us. It’s about the choices we make, and how those choices can have far reaching consequences. It questions the dogma that the strong are the rightful rulers of the weak. If the story has a beginning it’s in 1849 where a young lawyer, Adam Ewing (Jim Sturgess), takes a sea voyage with Dr. Henrey Goose (Tom Hanks). We then come to the 1930s where a young composer, Robert Frobisher (Ben Whishaw), writes to his lover, Rufus Sixsmith (James D’Arcy), of his struggles to complete his masterpiece while under the thumb of the once great Vyvyan Ayrs (Jim Broadbent). It then moves to the seventies where reporter Luisa Rey (Halle Berry) investigates a mystery surrounding a nuclear power plant run by Lloyd Hooks (Hugh Grant). In our own time publisher Timothy Cavendish (Jim Broadbent) becomes imprisoned in a

Cloud Atlas is a bold story told on the grandest of scales. It isn’t the story of one character or of one lifetime, but of a number of characters through a number of lifetimes all connected in a myriad of ways. It moves fluidly back and forth across time, and from storyline to storyline. It’s not an easy film to follow at first, but by the end you begin to see all the subtle ways everything fits together, and at the end you’re left utterly and completely awe struck. This is such a unique experience to see a character not just evolve over the normal course of a story, but to see that character’s soul evolve over the course of multiple lifetimes. It’s an astounding feat, and each and every actor is magnificent. Hanks, Berry, Broadbent, Bae, Sturgess, Weaving, Whishaw, D’Arcy, Sarandon, and Grant are all spectacular. Visually stunning, dramatically breathtaking, Cloud Atlas is a singularly unique experience. It is without question a masterpiece. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

Ronny tries to plant potatoes in his ears One year the Lapointe cousins were again with us well into the fall, and Father said he doubted very much if Uncle Herby had any intention of taking them back to Montreal before the spring thaw! Ronny was a force to be reckoned with, while his younger brother Terry was as meek as a mouse. And any time Uncle Herby and Aunt Helen could send the boys out to the farm at Northcote, they did. It didn’t matter if it was the middle of the winter, or during the dead heat of the summer, we never knew when to expect the two cousins. I was always thrilled when they came to stay. They added much to our quiet life out there on the farm, and I loved when the cousins were with us, even though Ronny was constantly in trouble, if not at home, at the Northcote School. Back then it didn’t seem to matter where you came from, or why you were in the school. If you were of

school age, you just went. Terry was too young, even for Primer book, so he stayed home with Mother. But Ronny, close to my age, made the three and half mile trek with the rest of us. All that was needed was an extra bag of lunch. Well, Ronny hated having his ears examined every morning. He didn’t complain about the neck, but for some reason he went through a routine that never varied when Mother was ready for her examination. He would bend his head onto his shoulder as far as it would go, screw up his face, and let out a howl much like our old Collie dog did when he thought something was attacking

our hen house. Mother gave him no sympathy. He also didn’t have much use for the nightly sponge bath. And I know for a fact, he often just wet the face cloth and put it right back in the basin of water, stood for as long as he thought a reasonable time, and announced he was finished. And of course, the ears were rarely touched. Well, one morning Mother took a hold of one of his ears, and said “Ronny Lapointe, you could plant potatoes in there. Get over to the bench and I’ll give those ears a clean out.” Well, for some reason that morning, Ronny took his punishment like a man. But I could tell the wheels

Mother and said, “Aunty, you said yesterday I could plant potatoes in my ears. Well, I thought I could maybe help it along if I put a bit of gravel in there. I sure would like to see a potato grow in my ears. Boy, wouldn’t I have something to tell the guys back in Montreal when I get home.” I had no idea if he thought seriously that he could plant a potato in his ear by putting in a bit of dirt, or if, as usual, he just wanted to cause a bit of commotion in that old log house out in Renfrew County! Father was just coming in the back door from the barns and he saw the entire performance. He lit his pipe, squinted his eyes half shut, as he always did when he saw or heard something he couldn’t believe, and said “It’s going to be a long winter. I’ll tell you, I’m afraid they’ll be here until the spring run-off!”

were turning in his heard. There was no howling, and he didn’t even bend his head to his shoulder when the other ear was being washed. Something was up with Ronny, I could tell. He was deep in thought. The next morning, we all lined up for the usual examination. Mother thought, since Audrey was in Senior Fourth, she didn’t have to have her ears and neck examined. She was old enough and quite capable of looking after her own cleanliness. I couldn’t wait until I reached that magic age. Well, it was Ronny’s turn. He stood ramrod straight. Again, very unusual for Ronny. When Mother bent to have a look, she got close to his ears and then hauled him over to the window so she could get a better view. “Ronny Lapointe! What have you got in your ears?” Ronny looked up at

EMC Lifestyle - Mother had a thing about clean ears and necks. We never once went out the door in the morning on the way to the Northcote School, that we weren’t subjected to a close look at both. Heaven forbid that we might get run over with a horse and buggy, end up at old Doctor Murphy’s or the Renfrew Hospital, and have someone see that we had dirty ears and necks! Every night before we went to bed, each of us had to give ourselves a sponge bath. And we had to pay special attention to our ears and necks, knowing full well they would be scrutinized the next morning. We pretty well ignored the rest of our bodies, since it wasn’t likely Mother would be examining us after we were fully dressed. My sister Audrey said she was quite sure we had the cleanest ears and necks in the entire of Renfrew County.

Memories of Cuban Missile Crisis never fade By Jeff Maguire

EMC Lifestyle - “Okay children, under your desks now – quickly, quickly. “Pull yourself up into a ball, interlock your fingers and put them behind your neck. Make yourself as small as you can! Just as you saw in the film.” The voice was that of my Grade 5 teacher at Stittsville Union Public School. Her name eludes me now, 50 years later. But some of the memories from October 1962 will never fade. This one is the most vivid! We were taking part in a drill. One that every child in our school participated in during that very tense time in world history. Earlier we had watched a film that was available to teach people how to protect themselves. We were preparing for what might happen should our enemy of the time, the Soviet Union, launch a nuclear attack on North America. With Stittsville located so close to Ottawa, the seat of government, we were well within the fallout zone if nuclear missiles struck the city. It was a deadly serious business. Believe me there was no smirking, laughing or tardiness at our school. When the teacher said “assume the position” that’s exactly what we did. I was scared stiff, we all were. By Grade 5 we were

old enough to follow the news and we knew the situation was very serious. The world’s greatest powers of the day, the United States of America and the Soviet Union, were teetering on the brink of nuclear war and the threat of annihilation hung over all of us like a pall. American President John Fitzgerald Kennedy (JFK) and Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev stood toe-to-toe in a potentially deadly confrontation over the presence of Russian nuclear missiles on the Caribbean island of Cuba. The Soviets had placed them there in secrecy. U.S. spy planes had discovered and photographed them and now JFK and the U.S. was demanding the launchers be dismantled and the nuclear warheads shipped back to Russia immediately. In the language of the time “the threat was real and verifiable.” As the world held its breath it came down to whether Kennedy or Khrushchev would blink first. The 13-day Cuban Missile Crisis began on Oct. 16, 1962 when JFK first learned missiles were being installed on Cuba, the nation governed by Fidel Castro which is allied with Russia. I say “is” because 50 years on very little has changed. Castro is elderly and ill but remains a dominant figure even though his brother Raul is now president. Cuba and Russia still cooperate

closely. Cuba lies 90 miles off the coast of Florida which made it an ideal launch pad for Soviet weapons of mass destruction aimed at American and, yes, Canadian targets. The so-called ‘Cold War’ reached its climax during those tense fall days half a century ago. The hands of the “nuclear clock” came as close to midnight as the world has ever seen. There have been other threats since, but none of them scared me as much as the Cuban crisis did when I was a youngster. Invasion threat The Americans led a naval and air force blockade and Kennedy threatened to invade Cuba if the missile launchers weren’t dismantled and the warheads shipped back to Russia. In the end it was the Soviet premier who blinked, perhaps spurred by concerns that Castro could not be trusted with nuclear weapons. We now know that an American invasion of Cuba could also have led to catastrophe. Secretly the Russians had installed over 42,000 troops on the island to help repel any invasion. Some 18 months earlier an American sanctioned attack had employed Cuban exiles trained by the Central Intelligence Agency. The Bay of Pigs Invasion ended in total failure and embarrassment for

the young U.S. president. In October 1962 Kennedy refused to back down. That made him a hero in my eyes and in the opinion of most people living in North America at the time. It’s one reason we were so shocked and saddened when just over a year later Kennedy was felled by assassins’ bullets while riding in a motorcade in Dallas, Texas on Nov. 22, 1963, 49 years ago this month. I say “assassins” because I am a skeptic about the socalled “magic bullet theory” and the lone gunman scenario. But that’s another column! Was Castro involved in Kennedy’s murder? That remains among the conspiracy theories which abound to this day, underlining how much JFK meant to the world during his ill-fated term in office. Now, 50 years later, I recall clearly what we were doing and how worried all of us were during the Cuban Missile Crisis. As children our fear was obviously heightened by the fact our parents were so terrified. It was a very troubling time and the information released publicly since the crisis shows we had good reason to be fearful. Commemoration events marking the 50th anniversary were held across the U.S. during October. In Washington D.C. an exhibition opened at the National Archives titled “Too the Brink: JFK and the

Cuban Missile Crisis.” The exhibits include secretly recorded tapes of Kennedy and his advisors as they worked to avert nuclear Armageddon. As school children our involvement with the Cold War didn’t end with the USSR’s decision to remove missiles from Cuba. The nuclear clock had only been turned back a few minutes. Atomic destruction was still a real possibility that we lived with every day. We still live with it of course but you have to remember that in 1962 nuclear weapons were still relatively new and therefore the concerns about their possible use were front and centre. Today, living in the post 911 environment, terrorism is the reality we face each day. During the Cold War one of the possible safety nets was bomb shelters. Just as the British did during ‘The Blitz’ people around the world were building home bomb shelters in the 1960s. In the spring of 1963 our school trip took a very different twist. Instead of visiting a museum and having a picnic in a park (favourite year-end activities for school classes in the 1960s), we went to the Civil Defence installation at Arnprior. There we toured a bomb shelter. A very unique school trip and one I also remember vividly. After the Cuban crisis there

was something very comforting about the thought of a home bomb shelter. Not that we ever had one of course. Most families couldn’t afford the “luxury.” If you want to visit an installation from that period the best bet in our region is the so-called “Diefenbunker” at Carp. The huge underground installation was where Canadian government was supposed to continue in the event of a nuclear attack. The Prime Minister of the day was John Diefenbaker, hence the nickname. Now dubbed ‘Canada’s Cold War Museum’ the four-storey deep bunker, buried in a hillside on the edge of Carp, provides an opportunity for people who weren’t alive or who don’t remember to learn about the Cold War and its impact on Canadians and our government in the 1960s. A great history lesson! That’s what commemorations like the Cuban Missile Crisis 50th anniversary are all about actually. Despite several opportunities I have yet to visit the Diefenbunker. To be honest I don’t feel the need. I experienced the Cold War firsthand! If you have any comments or questions for Jeff Maguire he can be reached by e-mail at: jeffrey.maguire@rogers.com

The right age to gift children mobile phones it wasn’t until 1983 that mobile phones became commercially available in North America. Phones once did little more than just dial a call, and even then service was spotty. Now phones are mini-computers, able to make and receive calls, take photos, access the Internet, download photos and text, provide GPS positioning, give directions, check e-mail, and so much more. Such cell phones can be invaluable, but their accessibility often makes parents and guardians think twice about gifting children with a mobile phone. Those who are carefully considering purchasing a phone as a holiday gift for a tween may want to consider the following. * Reliability: How well does the child take care of his or her belongings? Are keys constantly being lost? Are you often replacing items that were just

purchased? If so, the child may not be ready for a cell phone. Although many mobile phone companies offer promotional prices on phones this time of year, buying a phone can still be a considerable expense. Adding insurance to that phone will cost even more. Cell phones may only be for children who have a good track record of caring for and keeping important belongings. * Maturity level: Some children seem to be born wise beyond their years. Others are eternal Peter Pans. It is unwise to base a cell phone purchase simply on age alone. Parents typically have a grasp of their child’s maturity level, so it should be easy to determine if they are mature enough to handle the responsibility of a cell phone. * Features: Mobile phones, particularly smartphones, offer a bevy of different features.

networking to mapping physical locations, these phones can make children widely accessible from a communications standpoint. It can be quite easy for a child to take and share a photo with someone inappropriate, and vice-versa. Find out the reasons behind why your son or daughter wants the phone. Is it simply for texting, or is it to have emergency contact with home? Knowing the reasons why a child wants the phone may make the decision easier. * Safety: Cell phones make it easier for parents to monitor their children when they are away from home, providing some peace of mind. * School rules: In many institutions, cell phone use is prohibited during school hours or phones may not

even be allowed on school property. This is something to keep in mind before purchasing. * Accessibility: A child does not need a smartphone, so parents should buy a phone that doesn’t offer all of the bells and whistles. Not only will this cut down on the cost, it could help

prevent irresponsible behavior as well. Many children want their own cell phone, in part because they see their parents and others on the phone. But it’s wise to consider the pros and cons of giving children cell phones before telling children they can have one.

Gadgets often top the list of desired gifts for the holiday season. Adults and children alike fawn over the latest technology, and giving a loved one a new phone, portable video game console, tablet or e-reader for the holidays is sure to please. When gifting children with the latest tech gifts, parents typically ask themselves if a child is mature enough to handle the responsibility of having his or her own mobile phone. There is no clear-cut answer to this question, and it is up to the gift-giver to assess the maturity levels of the gift recipient as well as his or her behavior when considering giving the gift of a mobile phone. Today’s cellular phones are much different from the ones that flooded the market 10 to 20 years ago. Although the concept of a mobile phone has been in place since the late 1940s,

He popped the question in his 1959 Plymouth hardtop Beetle.” More than 40 years later, Ron purchased the convertible version of the two-door hardtop he owned back in the ‘60s: “I bought my 1959 Plymouth Fury convertible at the Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona, in 2007. It’s in great condition and has the same power train as my original ’59. I suspect the interior has been redone, and it’s in the same gaudy copper colour as original. I believe it is quite rare as only about 5000 were built.” Both of Ron’s 1959 Plymouths had high sweeping tailfins as they rolled off the assembly line. The late 1950’s was the golden age of fins on cars, and the Chrysler Corporation offered them on all their cars at that time. I was seventeen when the ’59 Plymouths began rolling off the as-

EMC Lifestyle - Ron Clark of Caledonia, Ontario, still has fond memories of the 1959 Plymouth hardtop he purchased off a car lot in Simcoe in the fall of 1961: “It was black with a white top and had the 318 cubic inch V8 engine with a pushbutton automatic transmission, a major change from my earlier cars (a ’50 Chev and ’53 Plymouth). My ’59 Plymouth had fender skirts and wheel discs and I added purple ‘mood’ lights which never seemed to help much for me. I must say, though, that it was in this car that I proposed to my future wife Nancy. Maybe those lights brought me luck as we have been married now for 48 years. “Unfortunately, another major change was in store. We got married in 1964 and had to downsize to a Volkswagen

sembly line, and I can still remember being struck by the handsome imprint of a spare tire on the trunk lid between the two tailfins. Two convertibles were offered in 1959, the Belvedere and the Sport Fury. Ron’s car is a Sport Fury and cost $3125 U.S. when new. The 318 V8 was standard equipment. The Fury first appeared in 1956 as a two-door hardtop with lots of horsepower. It came only in white with a very prominent gold trim along the side and quickly earned its reputation as a hot car. The Plymouth Furys of the ‘50s and ‘60s are highly collectible today, especially the convertibles. If the story of your car is published in this column, you will receive a complimentary autographed copy of Bill Sherk’s book “Old Car Detective Favourite Stories, 1925 to 1965.” To share your stories and photos, email billtsherk@ sympatico.ca or write Bill Sherk, 25 John St., P.O.

PETS

EMC - Your Community Newspaper

How to find a reputable dog breeder Millions of households across North America have one or more pets residing within. Of the furry friends completing families, nearly half are dogs. While many prospective pet owners are now adopting dogs from overcrowded shelters, there are still those who prefer raising a purebred dog with a confirmed lineage. The best method for getting a purebred dog is from a highly regarded private breeder. There are different avenues for purchasing a purebred. Because of convenience and proximity to home, one of the first places people look are area pet stores. While there are many reputable pet stores, many more rely on puppy mills to stock their animals. According to The Humane Society of America, pet stores do sell puppy mill puppies in spite of what they may tell prospective customers. That's because most private breeders follow a code of ethics that includes a refusal to sell dogs to commercial sources of distribution. Some puppy mills are USDA-licensed and provide "papers" on the dogs. But licensing doesn't mean that the facility is operating properly. In fact, some still operate despite facing violations.

The only way to ensure a pup is free from genetic disorders or parasites or has been tested for diseases such as giardia and brucellosis, as well as confirm that a dog will have a certain temperament, is by working with a private breeder. Many breeders are diligent in their careful breeding of dogs to produce offspring that are both healthy and true to the characteristics of the particular breed. However, there are some bad eggs among breeders. Finding the best breeder requires some careful consideration. * Go to a dog show and speak with some of the owners of champion dogs to find out if there are any breeders offering dogs for purchase. Another avenue is to visit the American Kennel Club(R) Web site and search the Breeder Referral page. * Make an appointment to talk to the breeder and see his or her facility. Many breeders do so parttime, so it may take some time to receive a call back. Do not be discouraged. * Find out when litters will be available so that you can visit. You also will want to visit the breeder prior and ask to see the parents and check the condition of the home or kennel.

* Ask questions of the breeder, including how long he or she has been in business as well as how often litters are bred. This will help you determine if the breeder is overtaxing dogs or simply in it for the money. * A knowledgeable breeder will know a lot of information about the breed and should be able to tell you the science behind breeding one particular dog versus another. The breeder should be able to explain the good and bad points of a particular breed, including the breed standards. It should be their goal to educate you about the breed, not simply sell you a dog. * A quality breeder should be able to provide you with a pedigree of the puppies, not just registration papers. The pedigree will list several generations of the puppy's ancestors. He or she should also be willing to share proof of health screenings, such as OFA and CERF certificates. * Pay attention to the way the dogs interact with the breeder. Does he or she seem to genuinely care for the adult dogs and puppies? The dogs should not shy away or be shy around strangers, either. * Most breeders breed

dogs with the intention of furthering their breeding programs to advance their purebred dogs. Therefore, a good breeder usually keeps one or two of the puppies. If the breeder offers to sell you all of them, it could be a red flag. * A good breeder may offer a lifetime guarantee on the dog and will offer to take the animal back unconditionally if you are no longer able to care for it. He or she can also offer to be a mentor for information on the dog and may be open to periodic visits. * The breeder should provide a written contract with a health guarantee. He or she also may mandate that the dog be spayed or neutered if it's being kept as a pet. Otherwise, there may be stipulations as to how the dog may be bred to keep with the standards of its pedigree. A dog sold to be bred may come at a higher price tag and may have extra rules specified in the contract. * Breeders should be as interested in having their dogs go to good homes as you are interested in finding a good breeder. They may require a lot of specific information about how you plan to house and care for the pet. People who have their

Safety first for winter sportsmen Winter is a special time of year for sportsmen. The great outdoors beckons men and women in the wintertime, when skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, and sledding are just a few of the many cold weather activities to entice athletes out of their homes. Though winter sports can help fend off cabin fever, those who don't exercise certain safety precautions might find themselves dealing with another kind of fever. Cold weather can leave men, women and children susceptible to illness or injury if they aren't careful. The following are a few safety tips for winter sportsmen who want to make the most of the coming winter sports season. Clothing Inadequate clothing is one of the easiest ways a winter sportsmen can fall victim to illness or injury . But the right clothing can go a long way toward ensuring this winter sports season is fun and illness- and injury-free. * Wear protective head gear. Protective headgear can help sportsmen avoid colds and head injuries. When venturing outdoors in the winter, always wear a protective wool ski cap. Most body heat is lost through the head, but wool caps help your body retain warmth on cold days and nights. In addition, sportsmen should always wear protective headgear when skiing, sledding, snowboarding or playing ice hockey. Even the most

experienced sportsmen can suffer a head injury when playing a winter sport, but the appropriate headgear can prevent head injuries to veteran and novice athletes alike. * Dress in layers. Dressing in layers is another way to stay warm and prevent illness in the winter months. Kids are especially susceptible to cold weather, so parents should dress them in one more layer than they dress themselves. When wearing scarves, sportsmen should tuck their scarves in so they don't get tangled with sporting equipment. * Remove drawstrings from kids' clothing. Drawstrings on winter hats, overcoats and pants can prove harmful to children. These drawstrings can easily get tangled and lead to strangulation. Parents should remove all drawstrings from kids' winter clothing before kids participate in winter sports. Ice skating & hockey Winter is a great time to go ice skating or play some hockey. However, ice sports like skating and hockey can be especially dangerous, and it's wise for adults and children to be as cautious as possible when getting in some ice time. * Beware of thin ice. Ice that forms on moving waters, including rivers and creeks, is never safe enough to skate on. Such waters should always be avoided no matter how thick the ice may appear. When going ice skating or playing hockey

outdoors, only do so on waters that are supervised and have been tested and approved for skating. * Skate with the crowd and never skate alone. Skating alone might give you all the room in the world to perform a figure eight, but skating alone leaves you with no backup should the ice break and you fall in or if you injure yourself in a fall. When skating, never skate against the crowd. Skiing and snowboarding Skiing and snowboarding are immensely popular in the winter, but that popularity should not overshadow how dangerous these activities can be. * Get instruction. Ski resorts typically require guests with no previous skiing or snowboarding experience to get lessons before they can take to the slopes. These lessons are a must for novice skiers and snowboarders and even those athletes with no recent experience on the slopes. * Be especially cautious when entering or exiting the ski lift. Ski lifts pose a significant injury risk, so skiers and snowboarders should always be attentive when entering or exiting the lift. * Don't allow young children to snowboard. Many of today's youngsters prefer snowboarding to skiing. However, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children seven years of age and younger should not snowboard.

* Don't be in a hurry. Skiing or snowboarding too fast increases the chance you will lose control and cause injury to yourself or others. Go at a slower, more relaxed pace and take in all of the beautiful scenery along the way. Sledding Sledding is a great way to have some fun in the winter snow. But even though sledding is often seen as a carefree activity, it can be

risky as well. * Never sled near traffic. Sledding near traffic is a definite no-no, as it risks the lives of sledders and motorists alike. Always make sure you sled in an insulated area far away from roadways. * Sled feet-first or sitting up. Sledding feet-first or sitting up greatly reduces a sledder's risk of suffering a head or neck injury. Never sled while lying down head first.

* Never sled on ice. Sledding on ice can cause injuries and make it difficult to control a sled. When sledding, only do so on packed snow. * Do not allow a sled to be pulled by a vehicle. Being pulled by a vehicle while on a sled might seem like fun, but it's nearly impossible for oncoming traffic to see a sledder behind a vehicle, and it's very easy for the sled to fishtail into oncoming traffic.

How to find investors for your business

Starting a business and being your own boss is a dream for many working men and women. Whether you have a great idea for a startup business or want to branch out on your own in your current line of work, starting a business from scratch can be a risky, yet rewarding, undertaking. One of the biggest concerns for many startup businesses is finding the money to get the business off the ground. Finding investors for a business idea often involves patience, resolve and a strong belief in your idea. Few startups can survive without some investment capital from outside sources, and the following are a few tips to help today’s entrepreneurs find financial backing for their ideas. * Know what you need. Once you’ve explained your

idea, a potential investor, whether it’s a venture capitalist, a trusted friend or even a family member, will want to know exactly how much money you need. The more money you need, the more people you’re likely to have to approach. If the amount of capital you need is relatively small, then you can seek the help of friends and family members. This might prove especially rewarding should your business eventually succeed, as you will have raised investment capital from the people you trust and rewarded that trust with a healthy return on their investments. Keeping things in the family definitely has its benefits, but it can also cause problems, especially if the amount of capital you need to raise is substantial. In such instances, seeking the help of a venture capi-

talist might be your best bet. Venture capitalists not only invest in ideas for a living, but also if you work with a venture capitalist, your relationships with family and friends won’t grow strained if your idea or plan falters and the returns on investment are less than expected. * Invest in yourself, but don’t overdo it. Letting potential investors know you’ve invested your own money in the project can help, but you don’t want to overdo it. Potential investors might hesitate to invest with someone who sank their entire savings into an idea. Such hesitation occurs because investors don’t want decisions affecting the company to be made by someone who is concerned about losing their entire nest egg. Such decisions are not always rational, and they can affect how you approach the business. So while it’s good to invest in yourself and your idea, don’t overdo it to the point where potential investors might see your business as a red flag instead of a worthwhile investment. * Develop a detailed plan. Potential investors will want to see a detailed business plan that includes how the business will be run and how their money, should they ultimately choose to invest, will be used. Include a forecast of expenses, which includes materials needed as well as what you expect to

the future. Enthusiasm is important when seeking investors. Potential investors already have money, and they won’t want to invest in an idea with a goal of breaking even. Explain to potential investors that you have a long-term vision for your business, one that isn’t just for survival but, ideally, expansion. You don’t want to go overboard here, as you don’t want to make it appear as though you’re putting the cart before the horse. But you don’t want to project a lack

of confidence in your ideas or a lack of vision for how you want your business to grow, either. Enthusiasm about the future can pique a potential investor’s interest, whereas an investment opportunity that doesn’t figure to yield much of a return will turn investors off. Building a business is no small feat, and entrepreneurs should work as hard at convincing potential investors to invest as they did at developing their initial ideas.

If you have no experience in developing a business plan, then you might want to consult a business advisor. This will cost you money, but it might make the difference between finding solid investors or sitting on your idea. * Be enthusiastic about

Simple ways to boost your energy levels can't find the time in the day to squeeze in a little time on the treadmill or at the gym. But the American Council on Exercise notes that as little as 10 minutes of moderate or vigorous exercise at a time each day can boost your energy levels and improve mood. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that adults get at least 2 hours and 30 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity, including at least two days of muscle-strengthening activities, each week. If that's a problem, particularly on weekdays, squeeze in 10 minutes here or there when the opportunity presents itself. But the more committed you are to regular exercise, the more your energy levels are likely to improve.

the day. Something as simple as a bowl of low-calorie cereal or some oatmeal with fruit can help restore your body's energy levels and lay the groundwork for a productive day. Skipping breakfast entirely will make you feel sluggish in the morning and increases the risk that you will overeat come lunchtime, adversely impacting your energy levels for the rest of the day. * Focus on maintaining steady energy levels throughout the day. Lacking energy over the course of a typical day might be a byproduct of your eating habits beyond the breakfast table. Numerous studies have found that eating three large meals per day is not an effective way to maintain steady energy levels over

* Treat yourself to a massage. Many people find their energy levels are adversely affected by stress. Too much stress can make you physically sick and cause both physical and mental fatigue. There are many ways to more effectively cope with stress, and treating yourself to a massage is one of them. A massage can relieve stress and help overworked muscles recover, boosting energy levels as a result. * Treat breakfast with the respect it deserves. When you wake up in the morning, even after a great night's sleep, your body's energy reserves are almost entirely depleted. Consequently, men and women who don't eat a healthy breakfast are almost certain to struggle with their energy levels throughout

Mistakes men make at the gym rate to gradually increase and prepare your body for vigorous activities, such as weightlifting and cardiovascular exercise. Men who do not warm up and stretch before attempting more intense exercises are also more likely to pull or strain their muscles. Alter your workout routine so it includes some mild cardiovascular exercise and stretching before you start more intense exercises. * Failing to stretch. Stretching is essential to maintaining range of motion and avoiding po-

tentially uncomfortable ailments like back pain. However, many men fail to spend enough time on the stretching mat before and after their workouts. If you want to avoid stiffness and maintain your range of motion over a life span, be sure to spend ample time stretching before and after your workout. Stretch all major muscle groups daily, and not just the ones you focused on during a given workout. Hold each stretch for no less than 15 seconds.

will drastically improve your energy levels throughout the day. * Drink more fluids. Your lack of energy might not be the result of an unhealthy breakfast or a lack of exercise. Some people simply don't drink enough fluids to stay hydrated and feel sluggish as a result. Symptoms of dehydration mimic those of hunger, leading many to purchase unhealthy snacks when they might just need to drink more fluids. Those snacks can compound the sluggishness you feel from being dehydrated, zapping your energy levels even further. So if you daily routine does not include drinking enough fluids, try having a few glasses of water each day and your energy levels might just improve.

ness regimen, avoid highintensity exercises until your body has acclimated itself to daily exercise. Expect soreness at the onset, and give yourself a day off between workouts to allow your body the recovery time it needs. As your body grows accustomed to exercise, you can gradually increase the intensity and frequency of your regimen. * Overdoing it with weightlifting. As noted, the environment at many gyms can make men feel as though they need to lift as much weight as possible. However, lifting too much weight will almost certainly affect your form, and bad form can lead to injury. Don't focus on how much weight you can lift, but how well you can do each exercise. As you improve your form, you can add more weight if you so desire. * Diving right in. Many men forgo warmup activities, choosing to dive right into their routines the moment they arrive at the gym. That's a potentially costly mistake, as warmup exercises allow your heart

Though the clientele at most gyms and fitness facilities is no longer dominated by over-thetop body builders, the atmosphere at many fitness centers is still somewhat of a throwback to the early days of weightlifting. It's not uncommon to walk into a gym and see exceptionally large men lifting significant amounts of weight while letting out a grunt or two along the way. Such an atmosphere can spark the competitive spirit in many men, and that's when guys could make mistakes that can prove costly. Overdoing it at the gym is common, especially for beginners or men who are returning to exercise after a long layoff. The following are some of the more common mistakes men should avoid when going to the gym. * Going full bore right away. Though it's important to challenge yourself at the gym, asking too much of your body, too early is a mistake many men have lived to regret. When beginning a fit-

Instead, smaller, more frequent meals coupled with healthy snacks can stabilize blood sugar levels and help maintain sufficient energy levels, improving both mental acuity and mood. Instead of a large omelet platter for breakfast, choose a small bowl of low-calorie cereal and follow it up three to four hours later with a healthy snack of fresh fruit. When lunchtime arrives three to four hours after your midmorning snack, choose a small lunch with ample protein and follow that up a few hours later with a healthy snack of yogurt. The specifics of your diet should be discussed with your physician, but you will likely find that eating smaller,more frequent meals and healthy snacks

No one is immune to random bouts of fatigue. For many people, fatigue is most common around midafternoon, when the workday starts to drag and that hefty midday meal has inspired thoughts of catnaps. Though an episode of fatigue here or there is likely nothing to worry about, adults who find themselves routinely struggling to muster any energy, whether it's to finish a project at work or play with the kids at night, might be surprised to learn that boosting daily energy levels is relatively simple. The following are a few easy ways to boost your energy levels and make the most of each and every day. * Get regular exercise. Many adults know the value of exercise but simply

The Kingston EMC - Thursday, November 1, 2012

Dessert makes the perfect finishing touch to a special event. Hosts and hostesses frequently fret over which foods to serve at their parties, and that includes dessert. But hosts won't need a professional pastry chef to serve some imaginative and impressive desserts. In fact, it's easy for even novice foodies to make their own delicious desserts. * Invest in a star decorator's tip and pastry bag. There's no limit to what you can do with a simple pastry bag, icing and a decorative tip. Instead of slathering frosting on cupcakes, use the tip to pipe on individual stars or swirls so the cupcakes look dressed up. The same concept can be applied when baking a cake in a molded pan-and-pipe on the frosting to create the design. You can also use it to add a dab of homemade whipped cream to a serving plate aside a slice of pie. Get creative with your pastry tip and explore different possibilities. * Make garnish sauces. Professional chefs understand that many people eat with their eyes. That means guests may be more inclined to "ooh and ahh" over desserts if they are presented in a special way. Take a cue from restaurants and garnish the plate prior to adding the dessert. Create simple sauces from cooked-down strawberries or raspberries with sugar and water. Or look to premade syrups. Grab that bottle of chocolate sauce and create a design on a dish and then place the dessert on top. * Use leaves or flowers. In addition to sauces on the plate, you may want to add a few mint leaves or an edible flower to cleanse the palate. This adds a touch of class to the presentation and makes guests feel special. * Create individual servings. A dessert served in an individual ramekin or tin can be a nice presentation in itself. Plus, guests may feel like you individually  created each dessert with them in mind. Individual servings look and serve well, rather than having a

larger dessert demolished by slices or scoops. * Go for the wow factor. Certain desserts lend themselves to dramatic display. Creme brule or flambe desserts will catch attention. Simply lighting a meringuetopped pudding on fire for a few minutes also can create a memorable moment. Use a good-quality liqueur for fire-enhanced desserts, so the alcohol can burn off quickly and evenly. * Embrace the use of fondant or gum paste. These pastry art materials are frequently used by profession-

al pastry chefs. They're essentially a moldable dough made out of sugar. Fondant can be rolled to cover cakes, cut to turn into intricate shapes or hand-molded to be turned into figurines or other edible pieces. Just about any dessert can be enhanced with a fondant trinket. Make a flower or a heart out of fondant and lay it aside a slice of cake. Give in to a child's sense of whimsy by molding edible cartoon characters for them to enjoy at a birthday party. Fondant-covered petit fours may be delicious and eye-

catching. * Use cookie cutters to create different shapes. Instead of a standard layer cake, use cookie cutters to cut out cake pieces and then layer them with frosting in between. Think about baking a pie and cutting out a piece of the pre-baked top crust with a cookie cutter that gives a clue to the filling inside (i.e., an apple cutout for an apple pie). Place on top of the crust before baking. Creating special desserts doesn't require much effort or any specialized skills
