RELAY FOR LIFE

EMC News – More than 500 children and their parents flocked to Stewart Park on Saturday morning to take part in the second annual Easter Egg Hunt. Organizer Karen Reanie said there were more children than last year, so they divided them into two categories: under three years of age were lumped together at the south end of the park, while the older children took off from behind the bandshell. Town Crier Brent McLaren could only ring his bell once to signify his important words to those present – but the children mistook that signal for the start of the race and no barricades or volunteers could get them stopped. After collecting their eggs, the kids then traded the plastic ones for real treats and visits with the Easter Bunny. Firefighters and police officers were also on hand and a special appearance by Splash ‘N Boots entertained and delighted young and old. “It’s an awesome day,” Reanie said. “This is a great turnout.”

EMC News – Lanark Highlands Township’s mayor and deputy mayor are at odds over whether Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) Ross Trimble should have been paid an RRSP payment worth $8,600 from the town. “This is over and above (Trimble’s) contract,” explained township Mayor Peter McLaren, adding that Trimble’s pay is in line with the pay of his two predecessors as CAO. “It (the payment) is the equivalent as if we were paying him OMERS,” the Ontario Municipal Employee Retirement System. “It really should not have been a specific line,” in the budget, McLaren added. “It’s still confidential information.” Trimble was hired on a threemonth contract in 2011, which became more permanent in 2012. “It was certainly in our best interest to keep him,” said McLaren. “It’s not something we had to do but…if you give a person too much trouble, they’ll plan to move somewhere else,” he said, adding that turnover amongst top staff is an ongoing problem at municipalities across eastern Ontario. The payment was ratified during in camera proceedings of council last year. McLaren admitted that discussions on succession planning have also been taking place in camera, though he hastened to add that this was simply forward planning. “Carleton Place, they are looking now,” for top office staff, he said. “Five of their top line people are looking at leaving,” within the coming years. While McLaren is in favour of the payment, his Deputy Mayor, Brian Stewart, is not. “In general, I am not in favour of paying supplementary wages above and beyond the contract,” said Stewart. “There are ways to show your appreciation for our employees that are not monetary.” Stewart was adamant that

since the pay of all town staff is public, that this supplemental payment should have been made public. “I think, personally, that when you are dealing with a type of supplementary contribution, I don’t know why the ratepayers should not be privy to that,” said Stewart. “It’s a public organization,” though he did agree that there were times when privacy for an employee was important. “The performance of the employee should not be discussed in public,” said Stewart. McLaren explained that Trimble was already retired from his previous incarnations working with municipal governments when he was hired on in 2011. “He is collecting from OMERS, but he cannot pay into it,” said McLaren. The issue came to a fore when it was brought to council’s attention by resident John Hall, who attended the Tuesday, March 12 committee-of-thewhole meeting where the issue was discussed. “It was pretty obvious that the councillors were a little uncomfortable,” said Hall. “They didn’t want to talk about this.” Hall criticized council for their secrecy on the matter. “There was no information at all to the public,” said Hall. “The mayor was the only one that really made an attempt to defend the bonus.” Hall also chided the council for what he called a “bonus,” when the town was attempting to balance its books. Coun. Bob Sutcliffe however noted that the money “wasn’t just given to him (Trimble). It was debated. It (the line item) got into the budget process in error. It was confidential. It was part of his contract.” The line in the budget was included in various versions of the draft budget since the process began late last year. When Trimble signed his second contract with the See CAO page P2

Paulson said that is far from always the case; that unions reduce employee turnover, add experience, and bring other benefits. A well-paid workforce usually means fewer social problems that require government intervention; intervention that requires taxes from corporations. He added that the bulk of investors are from within a given region. There are not many outside investors considering a move to Ontario. So to discard labour laws that have worked for 70 years in the hope of attracting outside entrepreneurs isn’t a wise decision. “For all the rhetoric of companies being able to pick up and move to the ‘most attractive’ locales, it’s mostly smoke-and-mirrors, just as the outcries about outsourcing in the 1990s were pretty much red herrings,� Paulson said. McDonald’s can’t have an Ontario customer’s burger flipped in Mexico. “Most companies, and certainly most factory operations, are not able to move. And there are all sorts of factors at play – unionization is just one among a great many – in choosing where to establish a new business operation.� Paulson joins a growing list of economists and others, along with groups like the right-leaning International Monetary Fund, who say taking an austerity approach hasn’t fixed problems in Europe, and likely won’t improve the stalled situation in places like Ontario. He said cutting back the size of government might be ideologically appealing to some, but it is the opposite of what needs to happen to grow an economy. “You can’t get out of a stagnant economy by austerity,� Paulson said. “You have to grow your way out of deficit; if the goal is to eliminate a deficit.�

EMC News – The Progressive Conservatives vow to bring in U.S.-style right-to-work legislation if the party wins the next election. But an economics expert at Carleton University says that would lead to lower wages for all Ontario workers, usher in labour chaos and further damage the Ontario economy. A party “white paper� was released recently to gauge voter feedback. While not a series of campaign promises, it is considered the direction leader Tim Hudak and the party intends to go. Sweeping changes to strip unions of power is at its core. “It’s time for Ontario to re-examine outdated workplace rules that date back to the 1940s and adapt them to the much more flexible requirements of today’s employees,� reads the Paths to Prosperity: Flexible Labour Markets. “We must realize that labour flexibility and more opportunities for workers are essential to retaining and attracting the very best talent to our province.� The white paper goes on to say a series of government policies favour union leaders over employees and their employers in ways that reduce opportunities for individual workers and are obstacles to economic growth. “Union leaders have become so powerful that many employees in effect have two bosses, their actual employer and the people who run their union,� reads the white paper. “Mandatory union membership, forced paycheque contributions, closed tendering for government contracts and the artificial restriction on the number of our youth able to enter the skilled trades – these are not policies that foster the open, innovative economy Ontario needs.� U.S. President Barak Obama recently commented on states – such as the one-time union powerhouse Michigan - enacting right-to-work legislation. He called it “right to work for less� legislation. It’s a phrase Justin Paulson, assistant professor of sociology and political economy at Carleton, said accurately captures what happens in those regions. Alabama and about 23 others with right-to-work laws have the lowest wages; when workers are divided they are more vulnerable. “Encouraging employees to opt out of paying dues substantially weakens any union’s ability to negotiate on behalf of all of its members,� said Paulson, who studied in the U.S. “The result is almost always weaker unions and lower wages. This is uncontroversial; the lowest in the U.S. are in rightto-work states, and while right-to-work proponents claim that this is somehow offset by the creation of more jobs, the dynamics behind employment and unemployment are far more complicated than whether or not strong unions exist.� Paulson said a “flexible� workforce – the ability to fire workers and restructure almost at will – only sometimes increases profits. He said the idea that cheap labour always equals high profit is “rather sophomoric.� It might have an effect in the short term, but it doesn’t account for other variables and doesn’t hold for all industries. The assumption in the PC argument is that corporations don’t like unions.

especially holds that lower business taxes will attract more investors, which in turn will create more jobs, which in turn will drive wages up. Paulson doesn’t buy that line of argument. “It won’t work. The whole right-towork strikes me as a straight unionbusting tactic. It serves an ideological function, but that’s it,� he said. “The idea that it would bring up wages is ridiculous. It’s just not mainstream economics.� He said austerity measures – cutting government jobs, reducing wages, failing to add stimulus - puts an economy into a recessionary tailspin or, at best, a kind of stagflation. Ontario, with some of the lowest corporate taxes in North America, would benefit from raising them, according to Paulson.

Union violence His fear is that if Ontario continues to go after unions – much like the Liberals did with teachers – it will embolden the more radical left-wingers in the union movement. For the last 30 years or so, moderate union leaders have won the support of the majority with steady increases in pay. Should that fall away, the moderates’ grip on union workers would slip. Few remember how wildcat strikes, vandalism, even all out rioting and violence, happened with some frequency in North America. Business suffered, workers suffered, all agreed laws respecting workers were needed in order to benefit the whole. Would dismantling labour laws and taking away Charter and union rights mean a return of the radical left? “I think you should have concerns,� Paulson said, pointing to last year’s student uprisings in Quebec and elsewhere. He said these things are unpredictAusterity needed Carleton-Mississippi Mills Con- able, but it could get a whole lot worse servative MPP Jack MacLaren said if governments insist on eliminating austerity measures are the only way to deficits rather than grow economies. go; that the private sector in this province has taken a hit to the tune of some 60,000 jobs and now it is the public sector’s turn. “Everybody in our society is going to have to shoulder the burden,� said the Carleton-Mississippi Mills MPP, adding that high taxes are collected to pay for an educated, healthy workforce, but that the time has come for Ontario to compete with other jurisdictions. “We are living beyond our means,� MacLaren said. “We haven’t paid the true costs of government as we’ve gone along. And now it’s come home to roost.� He said unions served a purpose in the past, but that individuals can negotiate wages on their own or move to another province that will appreciate their skills. MacLaren dismisses the notion that government can have a hand in shaping and growing an economy. The best it can do is clear up red tape for the private sector, he says. His universal statement is that the private sector does a better job: every time. He even downplays taxpayers’ investment in his own salary. “As someone in the public sector, I’m a burden on society,� MacLaren said. “If government is smaller with fewer workers, we’ll tax you less.� He is on board with his party’s plan to enact right-to-work legislation.

with disabilities. “Only 26 per cent of people with disabilities are hired by employers in Canada,” said Earle. “In my view, this is shameful! We need to change this.” Since day one of his advocacy, he has been opposed to institutions. “There is no room (in the world) for institutions,” said Earle. “Every person deserves to be treated equally in the communities where they live.” Endorsement “It is always difficult to follow Kory,” said LeBlanc with a laugh. “He is such a good speaker.” Like many people in attendance, she was wearing a black t-shirt with hot pink lettering bearing the words: “Support Kory Earle for president of People First of Canada.” Pink is Earl’s favourite colour. Other members of council in attendance included deputy mayor Ed Sonnenburg, Flynn and Coun. Gary Strike. “Our local members of People First work diligently, making an important difference in how people with disabilities are perceived and welcomed in our community,” said LeBlanc. Owing to numerous events, members of People First have made themselves visible in Lanark County, and they have strived to make its communities better places to live. The mayor tipped her hat to Earle for his work with provincial legislators, including Dufferin-Caledon Member of Provincial Parliament

(MPP) Sylvia Jones, to end picketing in front of group homes. “Although it (Bill 23) didn’t get to third reading, it did draw significant attention to this issue,” said LeBlanc, “and I know it’s going to be brought back.” This important work in the community didn’t happen without vision, and it didn’t happen without leadership. “Kory, you had that vision, which spread and as a result, People First has strong support throughout our county,” said LeBlanc. The mayor whole-heartedly endorsed Earle’s campaign. “Kory was and is determined and persistent, and these are two very important characteristics in a leader,” said LeBlanc. “I was going to wish you luck, but it’s not luck that is going to make you president of People First of Canada. It is you and your skills.” PFoLC president Manon Lépine has known Earle for 10 years “and when I was living in Kincardine, he would call me and talk about People First.” His message triggered something in Lépine, and when she moved to Lanark County six years ago she got involved. “I would not be here if it wasn’t for Kory,” said Lépine. “I owe him a great deal of thanks.” She called him a wonderful man with the biggest heart of gold; someone who would help anyone day or night.

the right to live a full and satisfying life and be a contributing member of a community. “The world needs more people like Kory,” said Lépine. “He has accomplished so much. I look up to him.” “Kory’s exceptional leadership skills are evident in everything he does,” added Coun. Jerry Flynn. “He continues to give members with visible and not so visible disabilities hope. Hope that their years of struggle against prejudice, segregation and discrimination are finally over.” In a light-hearted moment, Flynn joked Earle had grown tremendously over the years – up and out. On a more serious note, Flynn said, “Kory’s talents have taken him to institutions of power where he has been listened to and shown the greatest respect. He is more than worthy of the presidency of this important and much-needed organization, and as councillor of Carleton Place, supporter of People First and a friend of Kory’s, I am proud to endorse his decision.” At last week’s announcement, Earle showed off a key chain gifted to him by his mother 10 years ago. It is engraved with the following message (by Bo Jackson): “Set your goals high and don’t stop until you get there.” The PFoLC board passed a motion on March 13 to make Earle the organization’s honourary member.

Invitation to General Public to hear: Authors Claude Weil and Raouf Omar Tuesday April 9th, 2013 at 7:30p.m. Algonquin College Caffeteria, 7 Craig Street, Perth

Light Behind the Darkness: Stories of Compassion from the Holy Land Presented by the Lanark County Community Justice Program

A compilation of stories of the authors experiences during a conflict that is at the very forefront of the world’s consciousness. Weil is an Israeli Jew and Omar is a Palestinian, an unlikely combination for two such close friends. But this friendship proves that compassion--in the most unlikely places and at the most unlikely times--lives on in the hearts of even the toughest soldiers of the desert. We think of soldiers as being hard, impersonal, and rough; even insensitive. But in these stories we learn that they can be tough, but oh, so gentle. They can become captivated by a sunset or a desert flower; by a child, an old man, a beautiful woman. They can be capable of acts of compassion.

Lanark County approves tax rates for 2013 EMC News – The following are highlights from the regular Lanark County Council meeting held Wednesday, March 27 at the county building in Perth. Council has approved bylaws setting the 2013 levy amounts to be collected from ratepayers, as well as tax ratios and tax-capping provisions. The county’s budget passed in November with a $29.5 million levy to be collected through the towns and townships. The county residential tax rate for 2013 is 0.00410042 or $410 per $100,000 of assessment, an increase of 1.8 per cent from 2012. “We continue to work hard to find ways to maintain and replace the county’s infrastructure in a sustainable manner while limiting tax increases as much as possible,” said Kurt Greaves, county CAO/treasurer. Once the tax levy is established, council sets tax ratios, which distribute taxes between the various classes (e.g. industrial, commercial, residential). Tax capping is a mandatory continuation of tax protection for multi-residential, commercial and industrial classes. The nine municipal treasurers of Lanark County recommended a zero increase in the industrial tax ratio again this year. “The industrial class is above the provincial average. When the increase is maintained at zero it helps to move it closer to the average,” Greaves explained. The industrial class represents only 1 per cent of the county’s $6.9 billion assessment

base, with almost 90 per cent consisting of the residential class. “Restricting the industrial tax class ratio shifts the burden to the other classes, but then council can adopt revenue neutral tax ratios, which limits the increase to the residential class,” he said. Assessment changes for those classes are capped at 10 per cent. “Assessment is now being phased in, so we expect to eventually eliminate capping as it has become redundant,” Greaves said. The county portion is only one of three components on the tax bill, with the local municipality and education portion making up the balance.

costs were compared to an estimate to build a new operations facility. Considering the costs of repairing the aging garages and the operational efficiencies that will result from centralization, council directed staff to begin developing a plan for a new facility. Before the facility design process begins, reports regarding options for property acquisition and disposal, and proposed plough truck deployment options for winter operations, will be prepared for council consideration. Back-up site changed for fire communications Council has authorized a change to the fire dispatch communications centre services agreement that makes the Smiths Falls Police Facility the remote back-up site. The county has an agreement with Smiths Falls for the provision of fire communications for the municipal fire departments within Lanark County. As part of that agreement, the Perth Police/ Fire Communications Centre was the remote back-up site, but that centre is scheduled to close in early April. The Smiths Falls Dispatch Centre commenced communications services for the Perth Fire Department on Jan. 8. The new remote backup site will be the Smiths Falls Police Facility on Hershey Drive, which is expected to be operational in late March.

Proposed centralization of public works operations Council has approved, in principle, one of four options that would eventually see a new three-bay garage with office space built for the entire public works department. The department currently works out of five main locations: the Perth garage, the McDonald’s Corners pit, the Union Hall garage, the Almonte garage and the public works office building in Perth. The county owns all but the Almonte garage, which is owned by the province of Ontario. A consultant evaluated the condition of these properties to determine costs to repair and upgrade the existing facilities and to bring them up to code with barrier-free ac- Public access defibrillator program supcess and improved energy efficiency. These

ported County staff have been authorized to develop an education and awareness program to promote the public access defibrillator program. Since 2007, several rounds of grants through the Heart & Stroke Foundation’s funding of public access defibrillators have resulted in numerous automatic external defibrillators being placed in facilities across the county, with several more sites identified as having a need. The latest round of funding in 2012 focused on recreation complexes and schools with sport facilities. Some sites include secondary schools that annually teach use of AEDs to students. “The more individuals trained on the use of an AED, whether from public access facilities or through secondary school training, the more effective the program will be if the need arises,” said Rick Hannah, emergency services coordinator.

REGIONAL NEWS

Delta Maple Syrup Festival April 20 and 21 EMC Events – As soon as the sap starts to run, the community of Delta starts to prepare for the Delta Maple Syrup Festival. The 46th anniversary edition, April 20 and 21, promises to offer entertainment, refreshments, activities and of course, maple syrup and pancakes to the thousands of people who opt to visit the Village of Delta each spring. Established as the Village’s Centennial Project in 1967, this year’s festival will be held during the weekend of April 20 and 21 at which pancakes and sausages flooded with maple syrup will be served at the fairgrounds between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. There will also be a craft sale in the upper level of the main fair building, a silent auction downstairs and local syrup producers outside selling their maple produce throughout the weekend. In addition to the special

added on-grounds feature of having hot air inflatable jumping castles for the children on Saturday and musical entertainment by “King of the Swingers” on Sunday, there will be a blacksmithing demonstration at the Old Stone Mill Drive shed and a maple display, bake sale and book sale at the Old Town Hall. On Saturday, there will be a ball hockey tournament at the recreation centre in the morning and a dance at the legion in the evening. If you are able to assist at this year’s festival, please contact Heather Halladay at 613-9282949 for table servers and clean up or Liz Preibe at 613-9282902 for cooking and serving pancakes. People wishing to reserve concession space may contact Marlaine Hart at 613924-2407. The event is sponsored by the Delta Agricultural Society and

follows a tradition which began in 1967 as a Centennial project under the leadership of Harold Russell who worked tirelessly as he arranged sugar bush visits and promoted demonstrations. In the beginning, the Festival was a three day event which included busloads of students who visited Delta on school trips to enjoy pancakes and syrup which were served on both floors of the town hall. Visitors were able to tour the local sugar bushes and to watch maple syrup being bottled and maple candy being made in the Confederated Foods Syrup Plant. Over the years, the festival continued through the efforts of many local residents and service clubs until it recently became a project for the directors of the Delta Agricultural Society.

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

Consumers should be concerned about genetically modified alfalfa DEAR EDITOR: The National Farmers Union in Ontario has called for a national day of action for April 9 to stop the commercial release of GM (genetically modified) alfalfa – http://www.nfu.ca/issues/stop-genetically-modified-alfalfa. Alfalfa (commonly harvested as hay) is a high-protein forage fed to animals like dairy cows, beef cattle, lambs, poultry and pigs. It‘s also used to build nutrients and organic matter in the soil, making it particularly important for organic farming. If it’s introduced, GM alfalfa will ruin export markets for alfalfa products, contaminate family farms, make it more difficult for farmers to control weeds, and threaten the future of organic food and farming in Canada. Because alfalfa is a perennial plant that is pollinated by bees, genetically modified alfalfa will inevitably cross-pollinate with nonGM and organic alfalfa. Prairie farmers have already rejected GM

alfalfa for these reasons so now the industry is trying to introduce GM alfalfa in eastern Canada. I am one of many Canadians trying to eat healthier by supporting farmers’ markets, trying to grow more of my own food and buying organic produce and products. While I live in Toronto, I support Canadian farmers who don’t want GM alfalfa or other GM crops on their fields. Consider visiting the web link above or visiting www.cban.ca to find out more about why you should be concerned about GM alfalfa and other GM crops. It would be appreciated if you would consider writing your MP and Minister Gerry Ritz (gerry.ritz@parl.gc.ca) regarding this important issue to Canadian agriculture. Todd Buhrows Toronto

COMMENTARY Spring no time to go near water EMC Editorial – It seems like forever, but spring is coming. While Mother Nature seems to be playing a good April Fool’s joke on all of us here in Eastern Ontario, warmer days are on the horizon. And while the winter that never ends does reach its ultimate conclusion, it marks a return of fast-running and dangerous waterways throughout the region. While there’s no doubt the slow melt will help, according to South Nation Conservation (SNC), this is no time to let down our guard. “Water levels near an operated dam can change suddenly without warning,” noted SNC Team Lead for Water Resources Sandra Mancini in a press release. “We caution residents – especially parents of young children – to be wary of changes in flows, high water levels and unstable ice.” According the information bulletin, “SNC monitors snow depth and its water equivalent at seven locations twice a month; this information indicates how well the snow will be able to absorb rainfall and excess water. In addition, there is continuous monitoring of a total of ten stream gauges that measure river levels throughout the watershed.” Despite the heavy late-season snows, the authority has not had to issue flood warning messages so far this spring. That’s not to say conditions are safe, however. Despite taking what should be the necessary precautions, all too often we read about tragedies, of someone straying too close to the edge and slipping into the near freezing water. From there, it can take just seconds for hypothermia to set in, leading to a most preventable death. Keep well back of the banks and keep an eye on youngsters to make sure they come nowhere near what appear to be inviting watercourses. For more information about the watershed, visit www. watershedconditions.com.

Using the outhouse at night a scary proposition EMC Lifestyle – During the day, the outhouse held little terror for me. It was at night, when it was pitch black outside, that I dreaded the small clapboard building that sat like a sentry behind a cluster of cedar trees in our back yard. Mother hated the outhouse for an entirely different reason. After living in New York City for 18 years, she thought going outside to the bathroom was right up there with drinking tea from a saucer, or wearing a soiled apron when company came to the back door. “Uncivilized. That’s all it is... just plain uncivilized,” was her constant lament. Well, we had no choice out there in the back woods of Renfrew County. Our chances of having a flush toilet like my little friend Joyce had in her brick house, were absolutely nil! We had no running water, and there was no electricity or telephone, and the very thought of having a flush toilet in the house was like dreaming the Depression wasn’t happening! For the longest time, when I was very little, I remember our outhouse having only one hole. But eventually,

after Mother complained endlessly, a new one was built by Old Herman, who was considered an outhouse authority out there in Northcote, for reasons which escaped me at the time. It was after it was built that my older sister Audrey pointed out the bevelled seat Old Herman was famous for. Well, the bevelled seat did little to endear the outhouse to Mother, and did less for me, who still dreaded going out to it, once night had settled in. Old Herman had put a latch on both the inside and outside of the door too, which was a vast improvement over the stone on the floor that you shoved with your foot to keep the door closed once you got seated. Yes, the new outhouse was an improvement, but Mother still lamented daily about how it was, what she called, ‘an uncivilized way of life’, which she never quite got used to. My little friend Joyce also had a store-bought roll of real toilet paper in her indoor bathroom. It hung on a wire holder on the wall, and even when I didn’t have to go, I never failed to use the bathroom when I visited her house, and reef off a piece of that store bought Vice President & Regional Publisher Mike Mount mmount@perfprint.ca 613-283-3182, ext. 104

toilet paper, just to witness the sheer luxury of the whole experience. Our toilet paper was the no-longer current issue of Eaton’s catalogue. Father would drive a spike through the upper left corner of the thick book, and feed a piece of heavy binder-twine through the hole, and hang it on a nail on the inside near the door. An entire page was never fully torn out, and by the time the catalogue was well used up, it was almost useless. But it was all we had. Well, except at Christmas time. This was when Mother would ask Mr. Briscoe from Briscoe’s General Store if she could have the little orange wrappers that came around the oranges he brought in only at Christmas.

she would iron them flat, and put them in the back-to-the-wall cupboard in a neat little pile, and they replaced the Eaton’s catalogue in the outhouse only when we had company. And we children were well warned not to use the orange papers...they were there for a higher clientele. A big pail of lime sat in a corner of the little black building, and we were instructed to use a dipper of it often. I confess, I found that chore had little appeal to me. During the day, I had little fear of going into the outhouse, but once it got dark at night, I was filled with dread. So as soon as the daylight started to fade, I made awfully sure I made a trip out behind the trees to the little building. But the very thought of going through the entire night without emptying my bladder was all it took to create an urgent need. This was when I would beg my sister Audrey to come with me. Audrey thought I was old enough at five or six to go on my own. And so I would ask her to light the lantern, even thought it had yet to get absolutely dark out, and I would go through the summer kitchen and then ADVERTISING SALES: ADVERTISING SALES CO-ORDINATOR Andrea Harding SALES: Cheryl Johnston, Sharon Sinfield, Peter Ellis, Kathy Perreault, Liz Gray, Kevin Hoover, Jamie Rae-Gomes Email: emcsales@perfprint.ca Fax: 613-283-9988 THE DEADLINE FOR DISPLAY ADVERTISING IS MONDAY 4:30 PM

the wood shed, a long-about way of getting there, because that way I was under cover for most of the trip. My brother Emerson, whose mission in life seemed to be to scare the living daylights out of me every chance he got, would always warn me to stay clear of the coyotes, or the big black bear he assured me would like nothing better than to haul a young girl off to the bush! And so going out to the outhouse became a constant challenge for me once it got dark at night. There was always the Johnny pot under the bed, but to use it before we retired was out of the question. It was there for emergencies, Mother said. I couldn’t think of a more dire emergency than forcing a young terrified girl out in the dark at night to go to the privy! Like the silos that were on every farm, the tin mailboxes at the end of the lanes, the hay lofts, the pumps over the wells in the middle of the yards, and piles of manure at the back of every barn, the outdoor privy was very much a sign of the times during the thirties. Each, very much a necessity for our very survival. • Advertising rates and terms and conditions are according to the rate card in effect at time advertising published. • The advertiser agrees that the publisher shall not be liable for damages arising out of errors in advertisements beyond the amount charged for the space actually occupied by that portion of the advertisement in which the error occurred, whether such error is due to negligence of its servants or otherwise... and there shall be no liability for non-insertion of any advertisement beyond the amount charged for such advertisement. • The advertiser agrees that the copyright of all advertisements prepared by the Publisher be vested in the Publisher and that those advertisements cannot be reproduced without the permission of the Publisher. • The Publisher reserves the right to edit, revise or reject any advertisement.

Sunday’s Purse Event in Smiths Falls to How to enjoy fresh herbs all year benefit library, Big Brothers Big Sisters By HELEN HALPENNY

By ASHLEY KULP akulp@perfprint.ca

EMC Events – Find a new purse (or a few) this Sunday, April 7 at the Smiths Falls Royal Canadian Legion during the Purse Event. This is the third year for the event, which runs from 1 to 4 p.m. and is being coordinated by Tammy’s Nail Salon. It serves as a fundraiser for the Smiths Falls Public Library’s summer literacy tutoring program for children, as well as Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) of Lanark County. Last year, over 500 handbags were sold (raising $7,000) throughout the afternoon and Sunday’s fundraiser promises to offer even more purses of all shapes and sizes, colour and pattern. In fact, according to the Facebook page for the Purse Event, to date, more than 580 items have been donated by the community, businesses and organizations. “It’s a cool idea because everyone has purses they

want to get rid of and then they can come to the Purse Event and replace them!” said Tammy’s Nail Salon owner Tammy Edwards, who along with her mother Betty Fowlie and an organizing team, is coordinating the fundraiser. Those attending on Sunday afternoon can expect a bit of everything: new and gently-used handbags, clutches and wallets at great prices. In the past, high-end designer handbags such as Coach and Prada have been featured. All donations have been scrutinized to ensure there are no rips and the zippers are working properly. There will be three opportunities for guests to take home some great purses at discount prices: the bargain table, where items will be priced from 50 cents to $20, as well as a silent auction. The cream of the crop (about 20 to 25) have been selected to be auctioned off live by Joynt’s Auction Services, who are generously donating their time during the day.

Edwards is excited about the event and the quality of purses this year. “It’s a great afternoon out with your girlfriend, mother or kids. You can enjoy a few refreshments and get a nice purse for $20,” she said. The Purse Event runs from 1 to 4 p.m. at Smiths Falls Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 95 on Main St. A free gift will be given to the first 25 people through the door, door

prizes will be offered every 15 minutes and guests can enjoy a light lunch for a small fee. For more information about the fundraiser, visit the Purse Event on Facebook. Donations are being accepted right up until the event. Those interested can drop them off at Tammy’s Nail Salon (50 Lorne St.), email thepurseevent@gmail. com or call 613-283-4277 ext. 1 to arrange for pickup.

EMC Lifestyle – When last summer’s abundant garden herbs are just a distant memory, it is time to start some indoors, to enjoy this spring and summer. Herbs can share space in a large container or grow in individual pots. Parsley, basil, sage, dill and thyme will all perform well on a bright sunny windowsill or under fluorescent lights that give 14 hours of light. A soil mix suitable for containers should be used. Do use plastic pots, as clay ones dry out too quickly. Since indoor air is dry in winter, misting is very helpful. Give adequate water but do not overwater. An all purpose fertilizer used at half strength very two weeks, will provide

Master Gardeners

the necessary nutrients. Regular pinching will encourage bushy growth. If there is a mild spell you may be able to dig up a small clump of chives from your garden. They will come along quickly indoors. As spring approaches, your herb seedlings can be harvested sparingly and after being hardened off can eventually be transplanted to your garden where they will soon be robust plants, ready to add flavor to your meals.

Sizing up impaired drivers all part of police officer’s job By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

EMC News – Popping a few sticks of gum to mask one’s breath before climbing behind the wheel after having a few with friends won’t fool OPP Const. Beth Hollihan. Ditto wearing those sunglasses after toking up. Hollihan has been with the OPP for 15 years and currently operates out of the Carleton Place detachment. She is one of only four drug recognition evaluators in Lanark County, though there are 12 officers trained in standardized field sobriety tests. If you have foolishly decided to drink-and-drive, you may already be in the process of being sized up by the police before you even see the red-andwhite lights in your rearview mirror. “You stop a car for speeding – Cavanagh Road (outside Carleton Place) is a good example,” said Hollihan, with nods of recognition about that infamous strip, since it is posted 60 km/h but, with motorists coming off of Highway 7, many assume that the road is posted at 80 km/h. “We have to, in Canada, have something called reasonable suspicion.” Usually, erratic driving, or driving too slowly, are tip-offs. “If you see a lot of driving evidence to suggest that this person is impaired or texting,” that can be grounds for pulling the car over, and initiating the walk-the-line test, for example, or take a “diverted attention test…to see if they can multi-task, which is exactly what

It blocks oxygen from getting to your brain, which gives them the high.” One of the new drugs of choice is ketamine, which is available over the counter in places like Tijuana, Mexico, and is popular in the southern U.S. “(It was) designed during World War One for amputees in the trenches to disconnect their brain from the pain” in essence, said Hollihan. Today, however, a teenager experimenting with the same drug will exhibit some very odd behaviour. “Their mind is not connecting with their body,” said Hollihan, describing ‘moonwalking’ (“and no, I am not talking about Michael Jackson,”) where the user will take very slow, exaggerated, deliberate steps, while walking. On the horizon Another drug on the horizon that Hollihan is on the lookout for is “bath salts,” (synthetic Cathinones). “We had a case with a kid in Carleton Place who was on bath salts,” said Hollihan. Even though “he was freaking out in hospital,” lifting up staffers far larger than his 150 pounds, because the drug was so new on the scene at the time, nothing came back in the toxicology reports linking him to the drug – since there were no tests, as yet, to look for it. The drug works as a stimulant on the central nervous system and they are harder to regulate since “they are labeled ‘Not for Human Consumption,’ (so) that is to get around the regulations.” They can sell anywhere from $25 to $75 (U.S.) per 50 mg packet online.

“There is no quality control on these, because they are not for human consumption,” said Hollihan. While Hollihan is always looking for physical signs of substance abuse, it’s not what people perceive to be the obvious signs that signal her. “It’s not bloodshot eyes, it is pink in the white of the eyes,” she said. Eyelid tremors are another good hint. “This is a great one if you have teenagers.” While parents may not want their children taking illicit drugs, some young people are learning by example, with their parents, at the same time, doping them up for problems like attention deficit disorder. Though not intentional, sometimes those same children recognize the same drugs they were given when they were younger as something more potent. “People are often surprised that Ritalin is in here,” said Hollihan, pointing to a list of drugs, along with cocaine, khat, and amphetamines. “What you are giving your kid is a stimulant? These kids are sometimes not taking them. They share them with friends…(and) by crushing them (the pills) they are breaking down that time release.” While the new Oxy Neo, the replacement for Oxy Contin, is said to be harder to break down, like Ritalin, “Google (it and) you can find five different ways to break down Oxy Neo,” and ingest it, like users used to do with Oxy Contin. Hollihan also revealed that some illicit drugs are, frankly, revolting, and while drug experimentation is not to be

encouraged, sometimes, the situation sorts itself out, as it did locally with jimson weed. “We had a few kids who tried it here a few summers ago,” said Hollihan. “It is a terrible high and they never touch it again.” On the other hand, one of the bad things to come out of the ’90s rave scene has returned to the area. “We see a lot of ecstasy in the Carleton Place area,” said Hollihan. “We see a lot of it coming in from Ottawa.” Because the room was filled with people who work with drug addicted people all the time, Hollihan cautioned them that, just because someone may not appear responsive, alert, or even awake, on some drugs, they are still lucid enough to hear conversations. “Officers have been caught saying not nice about people,” in their custody, thinking that they were stoned out of reality. “But they are hearing everything you say.” And because they heard all of the unpleasant things said about them, it’s almost not surprising that they are then less cooperative in the police investigation. While parents and teachers may find new technology baffling – and youngsters take to it with ease and abandon – when it comes to discovering what pills your children may be popping, yes, there really is an app for that, with a pill finder app. “I found a white pill with Playboy bunny ears in my kid’s closet, what is it?” asked Hollihan.

they must do when driving.” Sometimes, the driver simply rolling down the window and asking “Anything the matter officer?” is enough to raise her suspicions. “If there is any odour of alcohol, we go right away for the breathalyzer,” said Hollihan. If the driver blows over 80, they are charged right away. However, Hollihan is also alive to the fact that a driver’s slurred speech and lack of coordination may be part of a more permanent problem. “We’ve had situations where people have (had) undiagnosed brain tumours or were diabetics” and didn’t know it. Hollihan was speaking at the municipal drug strategy networking session on March 1, at the Brunton Community Hall, Blacks Corners, Beckwith Township. She noted how hard it is to contend with teenage drivers, the lure of drugs and alcohol, and the volatile mix they make. Sadly, many teens just have to look at their parents for a bad example. Twice as many teenagers say they have driven a car after taking drugs or alcohol. About 40 per cent admit to having been driven by someone while high, and about 20 per cent of teens say they have used prescription drugs to get high – with three fourths of that number saying that they stole the drugs from their parent’s medicine cabinet at home. “You can get Prozac for your dog now, for separation anxiety, that’s how common they are,” said Hollihan. “Soccer moms are addicted to Dust Off…the accelerant gives them a high.

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; As warmer temperatures and some precipitation are being forecast for the next five days, flows are expected to increase in smaller creeks and ditches. No significant flooding is anticipated at this time, however, we encourage residents to continue to warn their children about the dangers of playing on or near ice covered surfaces or fast flowing water in ditches and smaller creeks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The average water content in the snow pack across the watershed in mid-March was approximately 60 per cent above the historical norm which could lead to an above average risk of flooding. However, severe flooding in this watershed is largely dependent on rainfall combined with snowmelt.

So far, the weather has cooperated and the snow pack is slowly being depleted,â&#x20AC;&#x153; says Gord Mountenay, the Mississippi Valley Conservation (MVC) water management supervisor. Ice conditions on area waterways will continue to deteriorate with the warmer weather and area residents are advised that no one should be venturing out onto ice covered waterways. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The potential for ice jams will increase as the flows increase so residents along the rivers should pay close attention to what is happening in the river over the next few weeks,â&#x20AC;? Mountenay cautions. Residents in low lying areas are advised to ensure their sump pumps are working and take the necessary steps

Joe: Retaliation for a year so it could be ‘re-tooled’ which is code for we just had three bombs at the box office and can’t afford a fourth. I can see why they held it, but I’m not sure it was worth the wait. Duke (Channing Tatum) leads the Joes on a successful mission to retrieve some nuclear weapons from an enemy state. It’s just as the Joes are getting ready to head home that they’re attacked. When the dust settles the only Joes left alive are Roadblock (Dwayne Johnson), Lady Jane (Adrianne Palicki) and

Flint (D.J. Cotorna). The whole mission was a set-up orchestrated by the President of the United States (Jonathon Pryce) to frame and wipe out the Joes. Of course the President is really Cobra operative Zartan who’s working under the direction of Cobra Commander (Luke Bracey). Taking out the Joes wasn’t the end game, but a step in their larger plan to take over the world. The three Joes have to stop Cobra, but they can’t do it on their own. Fortunately Snake Eyes (Ray Park) and his protégé Jinx (Elodie Yung) are still in the field tracking Storm Shadow (Lee Byung-hun). Roadblock also calls on retired general Joe Colton (Bruce Willis) for some extra firepower. They aren’t many, but they’re all the world has. G.I. Joe: Retaliation might have a few more scenes with

Channing Tatum, and is newly dressed up in 3-D, but it doesn’t meet expectations. I’ll start with the good because the film isn’t a compete wash. There’s a few slick action scenes, and some amazing special effects that bring all those wonderful toys to life. Dwayne Johnson is born to play Roadblock. Tatum is short lived but great as Duke. I like Arianne Palicki as Lady Jane. Ray Park and Lee Byung-hun are perfect adversaries. Jonathon Pryce is a brilliant villain, and adding Bruce Willis in as the original Joe is genius. It’s a great

Baby should visit dentist after first birthday Happy first birthday, Baby! Who’s your dentist? Hmmm…maybe not the top thing on a one-year-old’s mind, but did you know that babies should see a dental health professional by age one? The Canadian Dental Association recommends that all children see a dental health professional by age one. This helps to spot potential problems at early stages when treatment is most simple. Baby teeth can decay quickly, and are very important for a child’s speech and nutrition. This first dental appointment can seem overwhelming to parents, especially if they have any anxiety surrounding the issue themselves. Having your little one see a dentist early helps to develop a worry-free dental relationship, and save money. What can you expect at that first appointment? Baby will most likely be in your arms while the dentist or dental hygienist has a look in their mouth. They will lift up the lip to check the front teeth and look for any signs of decay. This is a great time to ask any questions you may have, such as how and when to clean baby’s mouth, what are tooth-friendly snacks, and talk about fluoride. They may discuss how to reduce the risk of decay for your baby and provide a quick and easy fluoride varnish if needed. Tooth decay is the second most common childhood disease. Seeking dental care early can prevent this problem and give your child a lifetime of healthy smiles. Call your dental provider today to book that first appointment. If you do not have a family dental provider, contact the Health Unit at 1-800-6605853. Want to know if your baby is at risk for decay?

Perth native reads Prayer of the Faithful at Pope’s inaugural mass By CAITIE MCRAE

EMC News - “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” Nathanael asked [John 1:46] Perth, a diminutive town along the Tay River, with historic brick buildings lining the streets and friendly faces greeting other friendly faces. A town that loves its hockey, is home to Canada’s oldest pharmacy and has an array of flea markets, craft shops and quaint restaurants to amuse its tourists. A town where any news is big news. Like when one of its own, Sebastian Gomes, 28, delivered the first reading at the inaugural mass of Pope Francis I last week. Gomes grew up among the charming streets of Perth. Never a devout Catholic as a boy, his focus was instead set on his soccer career. While looking at soccer programs at an array of American universities, his parents suggested he consider Saint John’s University in Minnesota. Like any indecisive teenager, Gomes was unsure of the major he’d choose. But meeting the monks, ministers and other religious figures who visited the campus regularly inspired Gomes to enroll in theology. “With theology, you’re dealing with the big questions in life. It’s definitely the most important subject to study,” Gomes says. After completing his undergrad, a master’s degree in church history and a year-long teaching gig, Gomes longed to be closer to his family, and moved to Toronto. And like so many before him who left smaller surroundings for bigger dreams, Gomes was about to embark on an unexpected – and awe inspiring – journey. After meeting with Rev. Thomas Rosica, the CEO of the Salt and Light Catholic Media

Perth native Sebastian Gomes stands outside the Sistine Chapel in Rome recently as he was selected to read the first prayer at the new pope’s inaugural mass. Foundation, and knowing nothing about media production but quite a bit in theology, Father Rosica hired him on. “I have a very strong connection with Father Rosica. There are not many people I’ve encountered who have as big an interest in theology as I do but of course he does, and we’ve bonded over that,” Gomes explains. Rosica was the national director of World Youth Day 2002, where he worked closely with Pope John Paul II. His past work as the English language media attaché for the Vatican allowed him to reprise that role for the Synod of Bishops this

Or so he thought. On Feb. 11, the world stood dumbfounded when Pope Benedict XVI announced his resignation, the first pope to step down in almost 600 years. The revelation spurred a media whirlwind. Everyone from news agencies to Catholic Church goers were clamoring and speculating on not just why it happened, but what would happen next. Salt and Light was immersed in the thick of it all when Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi contacted Rosica. The Vatican once again needed an English spokesperson to deal

past October. He brought Gomes along with him. “He wanted to introduce me to the reality of Vatican City; to see what really happens there on a daily basis,” Gomes says. Landing in Rome for the first time in his life, Gomes was taken aback not just by the beauty of the city, but by the opportunity that had been generously given to him. He says it was “incredible” to meet the cardinals and to see and hear things at these meetings that very few people experience. “I just thought ‘Wow, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,’” Gomes recalls.

with the mass influx of journalists that would be flocking to the city in the ensuing days. When Rosica alerted Gomes that they’d be departing for Rome once again, he was shocked. “I was taken aback but there wasn’t even a question that I was going to go. The church needed us, how can we turn that down?” Gomes says. As soon as they landed, the work started immediately. The Vatican press office gave the two men their own quarters to deal with producers for every big name news network from NBC to the BBC. Rosica and Gomes had to

decide on what approach they’d take in dealing with the media. That’s when Gomes decided to grab the bull by the horns. “We chose to take the route of transparency and bridge building,” Gomes says. Now a devout Catholic, Gomes says he feels the religion’s origins of mercy and compassion have fallen to the wayside in recent years. “I wanted to inform the secular media on what was really going on, and make a strong effort in clarifying Catholics,” Gomes says. “There’s a lack of common sense at the Vatican sometimes and they need help telling their story.” Fast-forward to March 13, when white smoke billowed out of the Sistine Chapel’s chimney, alerting the world a new pope had been chosen. That’s when Gomes’ life would receive a delightfully surprising perk. Emerging onto the balcony of St. Peter’s Basilica, to the cacophony of cheers and applause, was Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, now Pope Francis. Like Gomes, the Pope had come from humble beginnings. Raised in Buenos Aires, his father an Italian immigrant railway worker, his mother a housewife, and growing up with an affinity for the tango and the San Lorenzo de Almagro football club before joining the seminary, his life has taken an incomparable journey since his Argentinean youth. “He knows humanity. He knows extreme poverty and violence,” Gomes says. “He has walked side by side with the people.” And Pope Francis’ humility was far from snuffed when the papal conclave concluded. In fact, it was heightened, something Gomes greatly admires. See GOMES page P2

Gomes reads at inaugural mass for new pope From page P1 called “Room of Tears”, he chose not to put strong emphasis on the Scripture leaders, delegates, journalists, tourists

wear the red papal robe, a holy garment representing authority. When musing with an Argentinean Jesuit about the Pope’s groundbreaking choices, the man, a former student of the Pope’s, replied to Gomes, “You haven’t seen anything yet.” That sentiment would ring true when a few days later the MC for the Vatican’s inaugural mass notified Gomes that he’d been chosen to do the Prayer of the Faithful at the ceremony. It was an acknowledgement for all the work Salt and Light had done for the Vatican over the past few months and for Catholicism in general. Gomes says he was honoured. Nervous, but honoured. It wasn’t until the day before the mass that he’d realize his role had been upgraded to doing the first reading instead, from the Second Book of Samuel. A much longer reading, and therefore, longer time in the spotlight, being watched by a crowd of 250,000 and millions more at home. The prominence of reading Scripture at the mass was an incredible privilege, as Gomes points out, “We as Catholics

because it’s the word of God.” Being warmed by the gesture, he recalled a more touching moment, his own personal experience with the now Pope. Days before the papal conclave, he bumped into Bergoglio on the streets of Rome. Wearing a slightly worn out black robe and walking relatively unrecognized among crowds of people, Gomes and Rosica chatted with the cardinal. “I was kind of tongue-tied but I wished him the best of luck and said I’d be praying for him,” Gomes says. Bergoglio placed his hand in Gomes’ with a firm shake, smiled and looked him in the eye. “Thank you. Pray for me, because I���m really nervous,” Bergoglio revealed. It was his unchanging connection with the people that made Gomes want his reading to be a gesture of giving back to Pope Francis’ unassuming demeanor. “It was my little drummer boy moment,” he says.

Looking back over his life these past few months, Gomes is still flabbergasted. But also inspired. “My faith has been immensely strengthened. As long as we have Pope Francis, a lot will change,” Gomes says. Gomes says he is hopeful that the Pope will bring Catholicism back to its origins of human dignity, the common good and solidarity. “We’re all in this together and I think Pope Francis emphasizes that. This papal election has touched the heart and soul of humanity,” he says. Like the streets of Nazareth, Buenos Aires, and now Perth, Ont., it seems unexpected places are giving up extraordinary people.

Pope Francis, the first Latin-American Jesuit pope, is a hopeful breath of fresh air for the Catholic Church, Gomes says. “He referred to himself as the Bishop of Rome,” Gomes explains. “It was a collegial emphasis to basically tell the world ‘Look, I’m in the brotherhood of bishops, not a monarchical reign,’” he adds. Gomes is delighted that Pope Francis is taking an approach of modesty and humility with his position. He points out that the Pope chose to remain in his seat amongst fellow cardinals, as opposed to moving to his throne during the conclave’s culmination. It was a choice previously unheard of. He also selected his papal name to honour St. Francis of Assisi, who eschewed luxury for an impoverished life to highlight Jesus’ message to the poor. The cardinals gave him a standing ovation. And when he was getting dressed into his white papal attire in the so

‘Drugosaurus’ undercover cops battle greed, weed, and misdeeds desmond.devoy@metroland.com

EMC News – It’s probably a good thing if you do recognize Detective Constable Steve Rothwell in his work clothes. Because if you recognize him in his other, undercover work clothes, then he probably has some questions to ask you. Rothwell describes part of his job as walking around with “my hat on backwards, in my jeans, trying to find out what’s going in the county,” drug-wise. Being a cop, both undercover and in uniform, was not always his day job either. He worked for 20 years as a mechanic in Carleton Place before joining the drug unit in town. Both Rothwell and Detective Sgt. Chris Dobler of the organized crime enforcement bureau in Ottawa, were on hand at the municipal drug strategy committee networking session on Friday, March 1, at the Brunton Community Hall, Blacks Corners, Beckwith Township. They were there to lift the lid a little on how they do their job to catch the crooks and dealers preying on the vulnerable. “I’m a bit of a drugosaurus,” said Dobler with a laugh, of his 12 years in the drugs unit. “I am not going anywhere.” Dobler said he was heartened to see so many people together in one place, talking openly, honestly, and constructively about

how to deal with the scourge of drugs. This was necessary not only because it is the right thing to do, but also because it is what the other side is doing too. “The criminals, they are working together,” said Dobler. “It’s not where the Hells Angels work alone. They are with the mafia, the Jamaicans and Asian gangs.” While the criminals never really change, the drug of the day most certainly does, and the chase is always on to catch on to the next big thing, and to bring our lurching laws along in to catch up. Nowadays, it’s “bath salts,” that are the problem. “We are seeing that now,” admitted Dobler. “We are getting a lot of bath salt seizures.” Bath salts have just recently been “codeified,” for enforcement as a controlled substance, but the first cases using these laws are only getting to court now. Certain mandatory minimum sentences in the Criminal Code also came into effect this past November, and “we won’t feel the effects of that yet,” on drug cases. He did point out that, before the changes in sentencing, a bust of 40,000 marijuana plants in Petawawa netted the perpetrator five years – whereas the same crime in the United States would have resulted in a life sentence. Hash is also making a comeback in the area. “It’s a brown, tar-like

Chris Dobler of the organized crime enforcement bureau in Ottawa. substance,” said Dobler. “It’s not as strong.” Other well-known drugs are seeing resurgence. “Crack is very dangerous but speed (amphetamine) is just the ultimate drug in destroying people’s lives,” said Dobler, with one tablet costing as little as $5. “For $5 you will feel like you can take on the whole world. It’s a 10 out of 10. We’re seeing it in pill form. Down in Kingston, we are seeing crystal meth. Speed, there is definitely an influx of that… we are seeing Fentanyl here.” In a dozen years dealing with drugs, Dobler has seen the scene change in scary ways. “Twelve years ago, it would be very rare if we saw a needle at a search warrant,” said Dobler.

“Now, it comes across all the time.” The only thing that does not change is the greed of the criminals. “There is no loyalty, they (drug dealers) are not your best friend,” said Dobler. For them, it’s all about the money. While it’s not uncommon for drug abusers to believe they can trust their dealer, they also believe other incorrect information, like marijuana being relatively harmless. Dobler showed a T-shirt with a smoker lighting up, saying “Marijuana – hey, at least it’s not crack.” “That’s what a marijuana user thinks,” said Dobler. “The good Lord put it on the earth.”

Debates about marijuana’s usefulness, medicinal and otherwise aside, marijuana’s production and distribution is still controlled by the criminal element, and as such, there is no quality control, so to speak. Addictive elements are often added to the mix to hook users simply looking for a high. Drug suppliers will also tweak other drugs to boost their bottom line. “The coke (cocaine) we are seeing in the schools, it is buffed up, it is weaker,” said Dobler, adding that up to 50 per cent of ecstasy is laced with some type of methamphetamine, since ecstasy itself is not addictive, but dealers want to get kids hooked. Dobler heard this himself from drug dealers in Hawkesbury. “The drug dealers were telling us, ‘bag ’em up, get the kids addicted,” recalled Dobler. “They will keep coming back to you.” One way to do this was to stamp logos and cartoons on to the pills – including a John Deere tractor logo, or the Transformers cartoon logo, or an Ottawa Senators logo, though, in Hawkesbury, Dobler saw that Montreal Canadiens logos were selling better. While he takes his job seriously, Dobler admitted that there are unintentionally lighter moments undercover, and he has to watch what he says – especially when using drug terminology. In Ottawa, for example, the street lingo for marijuana is “herb”.

In parts of the Ottawa Valley, however, it can be “green”. During one undercover operation, Dobler asked some dealers, “Hey, got any herb?” This question garnered him some nervous, shifty looks from his potential sellers. “What are you talking about?” they said, not familiar with the term herb. “Are you a cop?” Dobler also updated the assembled on different drug terminology that today’s high school students might use, and even have on their clothing, binders or backpacks, such as S.W.E.D. (Smoke Weed Every Day) or 4:20 (the time in the afternoon when tokers like to sneak off work early for a joint.) While teenagers will always want to tweak the nose of authority, Dobler has less time for the perception that Canada is soft on drugs compared to other countries. It’s even less of a laughing matter when the drug scourge touches one’s own family, as it did with Dobler. “My nephew, he was approached to see if he wanted to smoke marijuana,” said Dobler. “He is in Grade 6.” He urged attendees and the public to remain vigilant and report their suspicions. “What might seem small to you could be the cherry on top for us,” said Dobler. “If it doesn’t feel right, it likely isn’t.”

Residents up in arms over proposed subdivision for Middleville By AMY HOGUE

EMC News – More than 30 concerned residents turned out to a public meeting in Lanark on March 26, to voice their concerns over a proposed subdivision application in Middleville. The lands in question are located east of the hamlet of Middleville and south of Wolf Grove Rd., in the Township of Lanark Highlands. Tracey Zander, of Zanderplan Inc., submitted an application to the County of Lanark on behalf of the applicant, Jeff Jackson, (who was unavailable for comment) for a proposal to subdivide a 108-acre parcel of land into 40 lots between two and four acres in size. Zander’s proposal details the intent to create a subdivision of 40 single family dwellings accessed via two internal streets connecting north to Wolfe Grove Road and east to an unopened road allowance. The public meeting was the third step in a five-step process that Lanark County planning administrator Mary Kirkham explained could take anywhere between four and six months to complete. The five steps in the process include the submission of the application, consultation, public meeting, review, and finally, approval or denial of the application by the county. Kirkham noted there were a number of tests required by the county throughout the application process, including a hydrogeological assessment and terrain evaluation, a life science survey and impact assessment, an archaeological assessment, a conceptual stormwater management report and a Butternut tree assessment. The subdivision application was circulated to a number of commenting agencies, including the Township of Lanark Highlands, the Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority (MVC)

and Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR), etc. Although the public meeting was held before Lanark Highlands council, final approval or denial of the application rests with Lanark County council. Community concerns During the public meeting, residents raised concerns relating to the project and its potential impact on surrounding landowners, the environment and the perceived misuse of agricultural land. Crystal Rodger voiced her concerns about the proximity of the proposed subdivision to the Rodger family’s working farm on Wolf Grove Road. Rodger questioned if the proposed development would impede the Rodger’s future farming operations, referring to the Minimum Distance Separation (MDS) calculation used to ensure odours and noises related to farming operations are kept to a minimum by maintaining a prescribed distance between residential and agricultural development. According to Lanark Highlands mayor Peter McLaren, the MDS can potentially affect a farm by prohibiting future additions to the farming operation on the basis it could affect the rights of surrounding residential property owners. The MDS only applies to farming operations taking place now, McLaren stressed. Should a new barn be proposed in the future as part of the Rodger’s agricultural operations, that barn must also meet the MDS requirements, which could affect where it is placed and if it meets MDS requirements. Susan McClenahan questioned what would happen if one of the adjoining farms wanted to create a calf operation. Zander explained the subdivision is designed based on the operations of the surrounding farms today, but that future additions to farming

operations could be impacted. “This will influence the agricultural nature of the surrounding area going forward,” McClenahan pointed out. Another concern raised at the meeting was the perceived lack of protection for the agricultural land the subdivision will encompass. Rodger questioned why recommendations weren’t sought from the Lanark County Advisory Working Group, pointing out the proposed subdivision of agricultural land seemed to fall within their mandate. Kirkham replied that applications aren’t typically circulated to the working group when the land in question is not designated agricultural, clarifying that because land is used as agricultural land does not make it a “designated” agricultural property. McLaren pointed out there is currently no designated agricultural land within the Township of Lanark Highlands. Hilary Moore also addressed council in opposition of the proposed development. “If there’s no protection in the township for agricultural land because there’s so little of it… maybe that means we should protect what little we have.” During her presentation to council, Zander identified the subject property as containing a mixture of Class 2, 4 and 7 soils, but stressed there was a “very small amount of Class 2 soils.” She added that no official document has designated the land for agricultural purposes, making the rural subdivision use a permitted use on the property. Peter Rodger questioned Zander’s soil classifications, arguing the land was predominantly Class 2 and 3, not 2, 4 and 7, as presented by Zander. “There is more than enough land to designate that land agricultural,” he said. Stormwater design was another concern raised at the meeting, with residents ques-

tioning if they will be negatively impacted by altered runoff from the development. Zander clarified that “postdevelopment (stormwater) flows cannot exceed pre-development flows.” Lanark Highlands planning administrator, Rob Wittkie, confirmed that pre and post-subdivision stormwater flow must be identical. Peter Rodger wasn’t convinced his farm will not be affected by altered water flows, and questioned who would be verifying that flows were identical, pointing out a similar subdivision in Carleton Place where “a farmer lost the use of two agricultural fields” as a result of flooding related to subdivision stormwater management. Wittkie clarified the municipality has the ability to hold back

Lanark Youth in the spirit of maple season with tour through county

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A group of 15 youth from the Lanark Youth Centre toured the county on March 23 and visited local maple syrup producers. Their first stop was at Golden Maples Farms, owned and operated by Doug and Wenda Wheeler along with their family. At Golden Maples the youth started from the beginning they saw where the trees were tapped and how it flows into a pump house where it is then pumped from stations into the sugar shack. The Wheelersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; maple bush is all by pipeline and pumped from various stations to the shack. Just outside the shack they have holding tanks where the sap is stored until it is boiled. Inside the shack at Golden Maples the youth saw how the sap comes into the shack and what it goes through before being boiled. They were shown where it is boiled, and taught what

temperature the syrup has to be when it is finished. From there they tasted some taffy, and headed into the bottling room where they learned about filling and labeling the bottles before they are sold. The group appreciated the tour Doug, Wenda, Ashley, Mike, Matt and Jenifer and thanked them for opening their sugar shack. Once the group loaded the bus they then headed to Lindsay Duncan and Sons maple syrup bush to see a small producer. When they arrived the youth and staff walked up to the sugar house where they were shown where the sap is dumped into the building and what the holding tanks look like and from there into the boiling pans. Then the youth had the chance to tap a few trees outside and learned how to

drill into them, how to put the spouts in, and how to hang the buckets. From there they went on a walk around a small part of the bush to see already tapped buckets on the trees and some pipeline. Back at the sugar house the youth got to have a taste of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s syrup and maple candy. The group thanked Tom, Melanie Duncan, and Dave White for allowing them to come, tour the shack and the wonderful treats. After both these awesome tours they were all quite hungry, so they headed back towards Lanark to have lunch at Templeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sugar camp, where

they were served a great meal that consisted of pancakes, sausages, fresh fruit, and beans. Highlands Bus Services, specifically Suzanne Hough, was appreciated for her efforts driving the group around on their tour. Their next event will be April 5 when a guest will visit the group and teach yoga. If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact the centre at 613-259-2012 or at lhyci@storm.ca.

Camp brings programming to area EMC News - Starting this summer, there will be a new option for keeping children safe, happy, and busy in their time off from school. After successfully providing summer fun to Perth children for the past four years, Maple Key is bringing that same program to Smiths Falls. Maple Key Day Camp will be running their Smiths Falls camp at the former Basswood Golf Centre, now the Siloki Centre, at 123 Poonamalie Rd. The Siloki Centre has an 18 hole miniputt micro golf course, outdoor driving range, and laser tag facilities, all of which will also be available for use by the camp. MKDC will also have its own separate indoor and outdoor spaces for programming that will not be accessible by the general public. “We are extremely proud of our program,” says Kristen Widenmaier, the owner and director of Maple Key. “When kids progress from daycare to school, their needs change. They need a program that is appropriate to their stage of development that is challenging enough to keep their brains stimulated over the summer, and provides social interaction in a safe, nurturing, but also mature environment.” It is for this reason that age groups at Maple Key are kept to a range of no more than three years. “Ten, 11, and

12-year-olds often opt out of summer programs because they don’t want to be ‘stuck with the little kids’. That won’t happen here,” Widenmaier explains. “They also have very different needs from smaller children, so their schedule is adjusted to reflect that.” Similarly, younger campers need the comfort of caring staff with the familiarity of their own peer group. “Our four to sixyear-olds get a wide variety of programming, but their activity periods are kept short to match their attention spans,” says Widenmaier. The MKDC summer program will run in Perth and Smiths Falls from July 2 to Aug. 16. Regular programming runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., but they offer free extended care from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. to accommodate working families. Programs offered include ages four through 12. Maple Key Day Camp, established in 2009, is the only privately owned and operated day camp in Lanark County. Their goal is to provide high quality care and programming specifically designed for the needs and interests of school-aged children. For more on their programs visit www.maplekeydaycamp. com.

OPINION

The GMO debate EMC Editorial – Are genetically modified foods good for us? Or are they just another way for the rich to get richer? U.S. President Barack Obama signed this week, The Monsanto Protection Act bill that will protect agriculture giants that deal with GMOs and genetically engineered seeds. These agriculture companies, like Monsanto, will continue to plant and sell man-made crops, despite not knowing the real risks to humans. How long before some sort of seed-control bill will be passed in Canada? What is Monsanto? Or who? According to their website, they sell seeds – seeds that have been developed with biotechnology and crop protection chemicals. “It’s our purpose to help farmers grow as much food as they have in the past 10,000 years combined.” They help farmers grow “more with less” and say they help conserve resources like soil and water. “And to improve lives.” The very farmers that Monsanto says it is here to help are up in arms over genetically modified (GM) alfalfa and they are taking their concerns to Ottawa. Led by Jeff Greenberg of Greenwood Organics in Tay Valley Township, the group of Lanark County farmers will be converging on the Ottawa headquarters of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) offices Tuesday, April 9. Once GM alfalfa is planted, cross contamination is highly likely and therefore, farmers won’t be able to sell their product as organic, or GMO free. In its natural state, alfalfa is a pretty good grass to keep weeds at bay. There really is no need to spray it with chemicals. In a world where people are more concerned about food labels, finding organically-grown produce will become more difficult to detect, much less purchase. Canada, according to the recent UN Food Report, is ranked sixth in the Human Development Index and has an average family income of $39,070. Food insecurity is a very real issue. A growing number of

Canadians remain unable to meet their basic food needs. The inadequacy of social protection meant that almost one million Canadians needed to use a food bank in 2011 and just about half of this number needed social assistance. The most vulnerable among us are those in low income households, single moms and the elderly – ones who need the most help. GM foods approved in Canada since 1994, according to Eat Right Ontario, include corn, lentils, potatoes, rice, soybeans, squash, tomatoes, wheat and canola, but before they can be sold in Canada, Health Canada ensures its safe for consumption. CFIA says whether or not it’s safe for the environment as well. Not all GM foods are labeled, however, as the CFIA says its difficult, as GM corn for example, can be used in many other products, like cereals, soup, frozen dinners… etc. If Europe has mandatory food labeling, then why can’t Canada or the U.S.? As a consumer, the best we can do to keep the foods on our shopping list in its most natural state is to shop the perimeter of the store where the fresh fruits, vegetables, fish, breads and dairy products are sold. Look for organic produce. Outside of the grocery store, you can become more self-sustaining. Grow your own fruits and vegetables, support your local food markets and ask the vendors questions. Experts in food preparation, harvesting and growing are all around us. You can also call the food company and ask them questions about what is in their products. Visit specialty stores where their products are labeled GMO free. Contact Health Canada or the CFIA and let them know you would like GM foods to be labeled. You can also write your MP or MPP and bring your concerns to them. We all deserve a right to know what we’re eating and we all need to be accountable to ourselves and our families.

Honourable Malcolm Cameron

Joys of modern life EMC Lifestyle - Recently, I told the tale about how Ye Olde Clothes Washing Machine had reached its life end, necessitating its replacement. It was a 20 year-old faithful machine, but the part that died is not made anymore, and it was a valve that threatened to, at any moment, let go and flood the kitchen. We limped along and manually controlled the taps and didn’t leave it unsupervised, but the drippiness continued. This was an older-model stackable unit that shared one set of controls between the washer and dryer. The brains of the entire contraption, however, were located in the washing machine part, which meant that when the washer left, the dryer had to go, too, unfortunately. The shiny new front-loading washer and its dryer partner are two separate, stacked units that don’t share a brain. I have to tell you, I entered this whole exercise with great trepidation. The thought of our family not having a washing machine at the beginning of mud season was daunting. I needed this operation to be completed quickly. In fact, part of me was content to limp along with the old machine because I have pretty much zero faith in things going smoothly when one makes a major new purchase. I try to be optimistic, but… So the appointed day arrived and the delivery fellows took away Old Faithful and deposited the new pair in our living room. Delivery people do not do install. Groom-boy and his dad tinkered with taps and dryer vents. We lugged the washer into place and voila! It worked! Hurray! The dryer required some fiddling to get the stacking kit set up, and then Groom-boy and I hoisted it on top of the washer. More tinkering and... voila! It was ready to go! No, really! Go!

Please. Arrrrgh. The dryer lights up and shows off its cycles and counts down… but the drum won’t turn and there is no heat. It is, however, doing a STEPHANIE GRAY bang-up job of holding down the washer. After a flurry of phone calls (involving some runaround, of course), we were connected with the authorized warranty repair people. Within a couple of days someone arrived. She did exploratory surgery – taking the whole thing apart – before finding a tiny broken switch. Everything else looks good, though! Naturally the part needed to be ordered – so we were looking at another week. Or so. The debate at our house ensued – do we go back to the company and demand a new unit or wait for the part and have the repair? I argued for the repair. After all, the repairperson examined all the innards of the dryer and she won’t leave (in theory) until the new part is installed and the dryer is fixed. If we exchange it, the delivery guys will dump off the new one and we won’t know until after we install it (again!) whether it works or not, which could bring us back to square one. Isn’t it lovely to have such trust and faith in customer service in 2013? The silver lining is I have a new washer that’s working and I would much rather be without a dryer than a washer. The irony is we had a dryer that worked. The alarming thing is the weather has been iffy so I have been relying on indoor drying racks, which means my tiny house looks, more than ever, like an episode of Hoarders. By the time you read this, I am hopeful the repairperson has come and gone and I have a functioning dryer and a lot less laundry hanging around my house. Or, maybe there will be yet another column on this topic.

Communities need to work together Who is Perthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oldest resident? Following the last Private I column, which asked you readers for an estimated count on how many current Perth residents were actually born in Perth, I received an interesting query from Vicki Hough. Her note comes one month following her fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passing. Russell Griffith lived for 105 years, likely giving him the title as Perthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oldest resident. What a life! With that, Vicki wondered who actually holds the title as Perthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oldest resident. Wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it be great to name this person? If you know someone who has lived a long and full life and resides in Perth, let me know about it! Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see if we get some names and numbers for the next column.

To the Editor, For more years than I can remember, even during my years as owner and publisher of The Perth Courier, a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; newspaper, our neighbouring townships of Drummond North Elmsley and Tay Valley, have been chronic complainers of the fees charged to them for the privilege of their residents being able to use Perth facilities. Township councillors want to pay on a per-user basis, for services, such as the Perth and District Union Public Library, Perth and District Indoor Swimming Pool, Perth and District Community Center. They should take note of the words district and community. There is jealousy and suspicion with the townships that Perth is trying to extort money to pay for facilities because the majority of use comes from its residents. However, all residential, commercial, industrial taxpaying concerns pay for all our public services whether those paying the taxes use them or not and that is how the townships should view their contributions to Perth. The townships, through their tax revenues, should pay to Perth, a fair portion for the privilege of being able to freely use Perth services and facilities. As an extreme example, should the town be policing Conlon Farm to make sure non residents do not use any of the free sporting venues? The same applies to our infrastructure, water, sewers, roads

John Clement which are extensively used by residents in these townships. Is it fair to say that 50, 60, 75 per cent of people who work in Perth, live outside the Perth boundaries? In reality, the two townships and Perth should be one municipality, but try to sell that concept to the townships. Whether the township governments like it or not, Perth is the centre of the local universe and as such their residents extensively use Perth facilities at little or no charge. When Perth asked to annex property on the Christie Lake Road for a housing development and the extension of Drummond Street so both projects could receive town services, did the townships cooperate? Yes they did, but only after they took their pound of flesh in

dollars the councillors felt was due because of lost tax revenues. Why do we have three official plans, three building codes and two fire departments, when universal programs for all three municipalities would cut so much red tape, energy, time, money, confusion, frustration? What would the townships think if we decided not to pay our share of school bussing that transports hundreds of students to and from the country to schools in Perth every day? Rural bussed students take up a huge percentage of seating in our schools. Schools, by the way, do not pay property taxes. Dozens of busses travel our roads twice daily. Students use our water, sewers and recreation facilities. What would happen if we demand the townships pay Perth for a portion of the security at the local court house when one of their residents is charged and brought to justice? Unfortunately, we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think of doing either. By law everyone pays for education including transportation, the most costly. Also by law, since the court house is in Perth, tax payers of this town are forced to pay for security with no outside assistance. When Tay Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s council was asked to contribute to the reconstruction of the Smiths Falls hospital, the initial answer made them the laughing stock of the hospital community. Councillors could not see the significance of their participation. They could not see the bigger picture. All they saw was a hospital far away and out of their

vision. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter that any Tay Valley resident could just as easily find themselves in that facility as in Perth. I think it is time for the township councillors to appreciate what their rate payers are getting, pretty much at no charge. Unfortunately, Perth is paying a huge price to provide the services it offers to local and rural residents, which is most definitely not appreciated by the councillors and probably not always realized by their residents. This petty attitude has to stop and a more cooperative and understanding attitude among the three municipalities needs to be created. Township councils and residents must realize Perth cannot be expected, now and in the future, to carry the whole freight. This is something that is fiscally impossible to sustain. While we remain three separate municipalities, for better or worse, as a community, Perth needs the townshipsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; financial support in a meaningful, cooperative and understanding way. A concerted effort must be made by all parties to create a formula, which has nothing to do with the number of users per facility, but one which will honestly and fairly see our neighbouring townships contributing to the ongoing costs of town services. I am tired and frustrated of hearing councillors narrow-minded excuses for not being part of the true community in which they, as do we, all live, work and play. John Clement Perth

To the Editor,

I appreciated the article (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Smiths Falls council defers action on â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;timelyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hospital motion,â&#x20AC;? March 28), on the presentation by Save Our Services (SOS) to Smiths Falls town council regarding cuts to our hospital services, and I would like to add to the comments made by Mr. David Lundy. I am dismayed by the chipping away of what is offered at

our local hospitals. My family and I have had health issues that have required emergency treatment, surgery, and hospitalization. I was more than thankful these were provided locally. I was able to be with family (and at times friends) for longer periods of time, and when required I was able to get to bedsides very quickly. During those very stressful times, I was relieved that I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to make

a trip into the city. The treatments we received were excellent, and the added bonus was that there were familiar faces in familiar settings. I urge anyone who has ever received help from our local hospitals to speak up to keep or reinstate services. Our MPP, Randy Hillier, is on record for his support of private health care and Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t speak-

out about what is happening in someone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s riding; therefore it is up to us as concerned citizens to do so. Remember before the crash of 2008, 40 per cent of all bankruptcies in the USA were because of healthcare debt. That is not the Canada I want to live in.

Organized by the Classic Theatre Festival, the evening will also feature a range of silent auction items, including tickets to the Stratford and Shaw Festivals, the Upper Canada Playhouse, Thousand Islands Playhouse, St. Lawrence Shakespeare Festival, among many other items. “It’s a great fit for us, because our mandate is to produce the classics of Broadway, which is essentially the same period that saw the rise in popularity of jazz and swing music,” says Festival Artistic Producer Laurel Smith. “When we launched the Festival in 2010, our first public event was with Standing Room Only, and we had such a great turnout – with requests to do it again – that we felt it was the right time to give the band a call.” Standing Room Only, founded in 2003 by trombonist and Almonte resident Catherine Illingworth, with members from the Almonte and Ottawa areas, has become well-known for its Sunday tea dances at Almonte’s Old Town Hall, along with gigs throughout Eastern Ontario. The event will also be the official spring launch to the festival’s summer season of Broadway hits, which this year will feature the Neil Simon comedy about the attraction of opposites, “The Star-Spangled Girl,” and Leslie Stevens’ classic play of marital mayhem, “The Marriage-Go-Round.” The season, which runs July 12-Sept. 1, will take place at a new venue, the Full Circle Theatre at 26 Craig Street (next

IN MEMORIAM

McGOVERN, Jim – In loving memory of a dear husband who passed away April 6, 2012. A million times I’ve needed you, A million times I’ve cried, If love could have saved you, You never would have died. Things we feel most deeply, Are the hardest things to say, My dearest one, I loved you, In a very special way. If I could have one lifetime wish, One dream that could come true, I’d pray to God with all my heart, For yesterday and you. Missing you, Sharron

HELLYER, Nancy – In loving memory of a dear wife who passed away April 5, 2008. God saw you getting tired, And a cure was not to be, So He put His arms around you, And whispered “Come to Me.” With tearful eyes we watched you, We watched you fade away, Although we loved you dearly, We could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, Hard working hands now rest, God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best. It’s lonesome here without you, We miss you more each day, Life doesn’t seem the same, Since you have gone away. When days are sad and lonely, And everything goes wrong, We seem to hear you whisper, “Cheer up and carry on.” Each time we see your picture, You seem to smile and say, “Don’t cry, I’m in God’s hands, We’ll meet again some day. Love Doug and family

You toiled so hard for those you loved, You said goodbye to none, Your spirit flew before we knew, Your work on earth was done. We miss you now, our hearts are sore, As time goes by we miss you more. Your loving smile, your gentle face, No one can fill your vacant place. Your life was love and labor, Your love for your family true, You did the best for all of us, We will always remember you. Remembered always Brian and Margo Armstrong Randy, Sarah, Tyler and Evan Armstrong, Stephanie (Armstrong), Ryan, Summer and Daylyn Imerson

LEMAY, Dave - In loving memory of a dear husband, father and grandfather who was tragically taken from us on April 6, 1999. This month comes with sad regret Brings back a day I will never forget, The blow was great The shock severe, Little I thought the end was near. No farewell words were spoken No time to say goodbye, You were gone before I knew it, And only those who have lost can tell The pain of parting without farewell. You left so suddenly Your thoughts unknown But you left memories I’m to own. Dearly loved, sadly missed and will always be remembered Terrie, Stacey and Geoff Christopher and Lindsay and grandchildren Owen and Isabelle

School board recently approved new workplace harassment policy EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; At the Feb. 27 Committee of the Whole board meeting, the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) approved a new Safe Workplace â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Workplace Harassment policy (#226). â&#x20AC;&#x153;This policy demonstrates our commitment to providing a working and learning environment in which all individuals are treated with respect and dignity in accordance with the provisions of The Ontario Human Rights Code and Occupational Health and Safety Act. The key here is that all of our employees are entitled to learn and work in an environment free of harassment and objectionable behaviour,â&#x20AC;? outlined chair Greg Pietersma. The policy ensures the implementation of measures and procedures to report and deal with incidents and complaints of workplace harassment and to provide workers with information on the contents of the workplace harassment procedures. All members of the board community are accountable for complying with this policy and procedure and maintaining a harassmentfree environment. The policy defines harassment as engaging in a course of vexatious comment or conduct that is known or ought reasonably to be known to be unwelcome contrary to any ground prescribed by the Ontario Human Rights Code.

Harassment can include sexual harassment as defined pursuant to the code. Objectionable behaviour is defined as often, but not always, persistent, ongoing, vexatious conduct or communications in any form, of attitudes, beliefs or actions toward an individual in the workplace which might reasonably be known to be unwelcome. A single serious act or expression can constitute objectionable behaviour. Objectionable behaviour is not the normal exercise of supervisory responsibilities, including training, direction, instruction, performance appraisal, counselling or discipline. The policy applies to all board employees, trustees, volunteers, parents, contractors, permit holders, and employees of other organizations not related to the board but who nevertheless work on or are invited onto board premises. This policy covers harassment by such persons which is proven to have repercussions that adversely affect the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s working and learning environment. The policy prohibits reprisals against individuals, acting in good faith, who report incidents of harassment or act as witnesses. The board shall take all reasonable and practical measures to prevent reprisal, threats of reprisal or further harassment. Submitted by the UCDSB.

Hillier introduces act to honour Constitution Day EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Randy Hillier, MPP for LanarkFrontenac-Lennox and Addington, introduced an Act to Proclaim Constitution Day March 28. As a matter of happenchance, March 29 was the day that both the British North America Act, 1867 and the Canada Act, 1982 received Royal Assent. The two most important documents in Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s constitutional history were adopted on the very same day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a significant event and should be recognized by our province,â&#x20AC;? said MPP Hillier. Hillier also noted that he recently found a copy of Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high school entrance exam from 1925. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The exam required pupils to list every aspect of the BNA Act. How many people could do that today?â&#x20AC;? he said. According to research conducted by Abacus Data for the Canadian Constitution Foundation, 80% of high school graduates cannot

correctly answer what the four founding provinces of Canada are. Ninety-three per cent of high school graduates do not know that the Constitution of Canada does not include property rights. Fifty-four per cent of high school graduates couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t identify July 1st, 1867 as the day the British North America Act came into effect. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our survey shows the disappointing lack of knowledge that Canadians have about our Constitution,â&#x20AC;? said the Canadian Constitution Foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive director, Chris Schafer. The Canadian Constitution Foundation runs programs to educate Canadians about Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Constitution. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In many countries around the world, a constitution day is recognized. Ontario should follow their lead.â&#x20AC;? Video of Hillierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s introduction of the bill can be viewed here: http:// www.randyhilliermpp.com/ media032820131.

EMC News - The excitement is building as organizers put the finishing touches on what promises to be another fantastic edition of the annual Black Tie Bingo. The third annual fundraising gala for the Great War Memorial Hospital Foundation, which sold out mere hours after tickets went on sale in January, is slated for April 13 at Codeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year there is a Mardi Gras theme, so in addition to dressing up for a great night out, guests are reminded to wear masks,â&#x20AC;? said Margot Hallam, Great War Memorial Hospital Foundation executive director. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We also have comedian Graham Chittenden on deck to entertain us, which promises to be a great show.â&#x20AC;? Chittenden has performed at the Just For Laughs Festival and has appeared on several episodes of the Comedy Networkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relaunch of Match Game as well as CBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Debaters. He maintains a busy schedule of live, stand-up comedy performances

and has opened for big names in comedy, such as Gerry Dee, Brent Butt and Dave Coulier. He recently travelled across Canada with John Pinetteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Still Hungry Tour.â&#x20AC;? His own comedy special was nominated for a Canadian Comedy Award and still airs on CTV and the Comedy Network. In addition to excellent food and entertainment, gala-goers will be partaking in bingo games featuring great prizes, as well as a fabulous array of auction items up for grabs, including 16 tickets in the 400-level for the Sarah Brightman concert, a woodstove and a Green Egg barbecue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Black Tie Bingo has proven to be a highly successful fundraiser for the Great War Memorial site (Perth) of the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital, with more than $80,000 raised over the past two years for specific equipment to benefit care at the Perth site,â&#x20AC;? says Dr. Robert Chaplin, GWM Foundation chair. This year the foundation is raising funds for an Argon Beam Coagulator, which is a pen-like

instrument that helps reduce blood loss during surgery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t thank the community and all of the sponsors enough for their ongoing and generous support,â&#x20AC;? says Gord Cowie, Black Tie Bingo committee chair. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is the key to the success of the gala. Our donors and sponsors are definitely making a difference in the community by supporting this event.â&#x20AC;? The event begins at 5:30 p.m. with cocktails, followed by a live auction, dinner, a comedian and bingo. There are themed prize packages for each game, and the value of those prizes increases as the night goes on. The $100 ticket includes the dinner and five bingo games. Extra game cards can be purchased at the event. For more information or to become a sponsor, please contact Margot Hallam at 613-2640638 or e-mail at mhallam@ gwmfoundation.com.

Foodsmiths hosts 12th annual Empty Bowls fundraiser April 13 EMC News - With spring in the air, Foodsmiths is busy putting the final touches on its upcoming 12th annual Empty Bowls fundraiser. What is now an annual tradition for residents and visitors to the area, Foodsmiths independently organized annual event in April raises nearly half the funds that flow through Empty Bowls program to area recipients. Founder of the Empty Bowls program, local Potter Jackie Seaton, provides the beautifully handcrafted bowls which are set-up in the store prior to the event and are currently available. Customers can purchase their favourite bowl for $20 and on April 13, fill it with a delicious Edamame Salad, made by Foodsmiths staff, with ingredients donated by their generous suppliers. All proceeds go toward the local sustainable food programs through Empty Bowls. Empty Bowls is also the recipient in the Foodsmiths April BYOB - Charity Bag Donation program. This program was developed by Foodsmiths to encourage the re-use of grocery bags and to pro-

vide a source of funds for charitable organizations in the community. For every bag a customer brings in that saves the use of a new plastic bag, Foodsmiths donates 10 cents to the designated charity that month. This very successful program has supported Empty Bowls and many other local charity organizations for over eight years. With the support of volunteers, staff and Mother Nature, the Foodsmiths 12th annual Empty Bowls fundraiser is poised for another successful event. Staff invites everyone to join them on Saturday, April 13 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. to Build Hope with the Power of Food! The store is located at 106 Wilson St. W. in Perth. Proceeds from all Empty Bowls fundraising by Foodsmiths will go toward the local sustainable food programs administered by The Table Community Food Centre, YAK Youth Centre and Food for Thought Breakfast and Snack programs in Lanark County Schools.

Letter of apology from Kiwanis to quilters EMC News - In the March 28 edition of The Perth Courier EMC on page P18, the article â&#x20AC;&#x153;Perth Kiwanis springs into actionâ&#x20AC;? contained an oversight. It should have stated that the quilt being raffled was hand-stitched by the quilting ladies of St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church, Perth.â&#x20AC;? The writer of the submission apologizes for this error. R0011999124_0328

Grade 8 science fair highlights EMC News - Last week, the Grade 8 Science Fair projects were presented in the cafeteria. My project was to investigate how a high-density neighbourhood can conserve energy, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just one example of the many unique projects on display. One examined the science of truss bridges, and others asked which type of throw is most effective in football, and whether listening to music while working can make people more productive.

Top Four for Norwood EMC News - Henry Norwood has made the final four in CBC’s Searchlight music competition. The 14 year-old country crooner’s original song Another Bottle Another Day has clearly plucked the heartstrings of fans across Canada. The Perth native has beaten out more than 300 entrants to snag a spot in the semifinals. Polls for the final two close this Sunday, April 7 at midnight ET. Norwood couldn’t be reached for comment at press time. He may be a rising star but it’s still a school day, after all. To vote for Norwood, go to cbcmusic.ca and click on the Searchlight banner.

Indie award winners to appear at Mason Theatre of expansive post-secondary musical educations. Zoe Dumais’ nowdefunct string quartet, Foresome, was a prize-winner at the Canadian Music Competition, the Festival de Musique du Québec, and the Young Artists program broadcast by Radio-Canada. Alexis Dumais, who, as a child, was a two-time national finalist in the Canadian Music Competition, earned the Couleur Jaz scholarship while a student at the University of Montreal. Alexis Dumais was the bassist with the esteemed jazz world act Polemil Bazaar, and, in 2003, was a soloist with the Symphonie des vents de Montreal. Marton Maderspach has studied Arabic and Cuban percussion and is a member of the Gitanes de Sarajevo. Guillaume Bourque plays with the contemporary music ensemble Chorum and the East-meets-West jazz ensemble Absinthe. And Zoe Dumais performs with flamenco guitarist Juan Carranza among many other artists. Yet despite their vast musical interests, the band members all found themselves in accord on the new focus for Sagapool. Originally formed in 1999 as an exploration of the intersections between klezmer, Balkan and film music, the members felt inspired this time to put the emphasis on the filmic. The result is a sound both familiar and adventurous and a richly varied live show that is not to be missed.

EMC News - Inspired by windswept northern landscapes, tranquil wintery mornings, and the atmospheric music of acts like Beirut, Sigur Ros and its compatriots, Patrick Watson, Quebec indie instrumental ensemble Sagapool has charted a new musical course with its Felix Award-winning eponymous fourth album – one so cinematic and evocative that it unfolds like the score to an as-yetunwritten film. They will be playing in Perth, at the Mason Theatre on April 12. Tickets are $28.50, available at Tickets Please, and the show starts at 8 p.m. After premiering the material to enthusiastic crowds at last year’s Ashkenaz Festival, the band – recipients of a 2008 GAMIQ (Quebec indie music award) nomination, two Canadian Folk Music Awards, a Galaxie Rising Star Award and a 2006 ROSEQ-RADARTS discovery award - returns to Toronto on April 11 for its first full-on concert since the album’s release. Audiences can expect an allencompassing musical journey weaving the often wry and mischievous klezmer and hot jazzinspired compositions of the act’s three previous albums with periods of dreamy introspection that build in intensity toward moving crescendos. The core instrumentation will be familiar to long-time fans: clarinet, accordion, violin, guitar, bass and percussion. But the new sounds provide a lush contrast to some of their more angular Sagapool will appear at Mason Theatre April 12. earlier compositions. That Sagapool can pull off this much to its members’ training, cal experience. All six players are ambitious musical outing owes virtuosity and diversity of musi- classically-trained and possessed

Team Finland calls Perth home leading up to IIHF world championships EMC Sports - Heritage Perth gained some international flair last month when the Finland womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hockey team arrived at the Best Western Plus in Perth prepared to practice, practice, and practice. The team did just that, they practised hard every day in Smiths Falls, made ample use of the Best Western Plus Fitness Centre and Pool to keep up with all their training and enjoyed fine dining catered by the Stone Cellarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jamie Troutman. After spending only a few days in Perth the coaches and team players began commenting on â&#x20AC;&#x153;The prettiest town in Ontario.â&#x20AC;? Many of the team players remarked that Perthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s small town charm was similar to their rural home in Finland. Norma Lapointe of Hockey Canada also had nothing but good things to say. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sincere gratitude to the management and staff of Best Western Plus Perth, I now know what the Plus means.â&#x20AC;? With the consensus being that this was not only one of the nicest hotels they have stayed in, but also one of the nicest towns, Norma also noted upon leaving; â&#x20AC;&#x153;I miss my room, I miss my tub, I miss Perth.â&#x20AC;? On March 31, the team was set to depart from Perth, but before leaving, the team took a few minutes to present Pat Wiseman and Jamie Troutman with a signed Team Finland hockey jersey, making them honorary members of the team. Pat Wiseman, GM of the hotel, responded by letting the team know what an honour it was to have each and every one of the team, coaches and crew stay with them.

Finland wins IIHF exhibition game By STAFF

EMC Sports - Smiths Fallsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; taste of international hockey talent was certainly coloured Finnish blue. Finland dominated the ice from the opening face-off to the final buzzer with a 10-1 romp over the Czech Republic team. The March 29 exhibition game in Smiths Falls between the two IIHF Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s World Hockey Championship participants was welcomed by an audience of 1,115 who filled the stands and cheered on their team of choice. The Finns are looking to showcase their talent in this competition in hopes of getting back into the medal standings this year, while the Czech Republic is cutting its teeth in this first international womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hockey tournament experience this week

in Ottawa. Finland came out strong in the first period to stake their claim on the ice. The women broke open the score with 12 minutes remaining in the first period. A second goal was scored before the period ended putting Finland in a comfortable position after 20 minutes. The second period was a blockbuster of fast-paced hockey resulting in a series of goals for the blue and whites. The Finns left their opponents breathless as they connected on six goals in quick succession during this period. The Czechs responded with a lone marker, leaving them trailing 8-1 heading into the third period. Another two goals rounded out the game in the third. The exhibition was a rare treat for local hockey fans and a

great opportunity for area female hockey players to see their idols on home ice. Roughly 30 Smiths Falls Cubs players were at the rink March 24 to welcome the Finland team who used the local arena for practice before the tournament. On game day, Cubs Brittany MacGillivray, Nicole Robinson, Nicole McKenna, Elizabeth Holmes, Cassidy Nadeau and Megan McCoy handled game operations for the exhibition game against the Czechs while also raising more than $900 for SFGHA. This was Finlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only exhibition game before the puck dropped in the regular tournament schedule this week. Finland played Switzerland April 2, USA April 3 and Canada April 5 before the medal round.

Local family shares unique pageant tradition By ASHLEY KULP akulp@perfprint.ca

EMC News – Some would say one area family has pageants in their blood. The Sturgesses of Franktown don’t have just one or two family members involved in the pageant circuit, but three, thanks to 16-year-old Mariah’s recent participation in the Miss Teen Ontario World competition. She joins sister Marley, 18, who was the International Plowing Match’s (IPM) Queen of the Furrow in 2012; and mom Elaine, who was crowned Miss Lanark in 1981. Mariah’s foray into the pageant world happened by chance. The shy Carleton Place High School student said she never considered entering Miss Teen Ontario World, held Jan. 20 in Ottawa, but was intrigued when a former modelling agency she was involved with sent her an email about it. “I thought I would just take a shot and see what happens,” Mariah remarked. She applied for the competition, originally to be held in December, in November. Though she had done a bit of modelling, Mariah had to quickly search for the perfect outfits and learn to conquer high heels, which she had never worn previously. “I had no idea what to expect, or what to do. My friends and I spent the weekend trying to walk in heels,” she commented. Upon hearing she had been accepted to participate, Mariah said judges told her she was chosen because of her unique qualities. “I love art and I’m always sitting in a corner and drawing and I love photography,” she explained, stating her platform focused on anti-bullying. “I’m really quiet and I can’t even believe that I did this. My friends barely believed me.” Neither did her sister. “She’s really quiet at school and she doesn’t strike me as the kind of girl that would put on a gown, do her makeup and hair and put on heels,” Marley ad-

One Franktown family truly has pageants in their blood. Marley Sturgess was Lanark County’s Queen of the Furrow in 2011, while sister Mariah competed in the recent Miss Teen Ontario World pageant.

However, she stood her ground when pageant organizers asked her to remove some of her piercings, which included a nose and belly button ring. “The theme (of Miss Teen Ontario World) was stand up, stand out and be your own kind of beautiful and I felt that since my piercings were my style...I didn’t think it was fair,” Mariah remarked. “Another girl there was asked

to cover up tattoos on her ankle and she said no as well.” “I’m so proud that she stood up for herself and didn’t let it strip her of her personality,” added Elaine. The competition featured included cocktail, evening gown and swimwear portions and Mariah admitted modelling swimwear was the “most nervewracking.” “I’m a very shy person and everyone is staring and I had to wear heels,” she said, noting that the experience did help her overcome some of her shyness. “I gained a lot of confidence from it. Last year, I never would have done this...it shows a lot of different girls can do anything, really.” “I think I would apply next year. It See PAGEANT page 38

Nutrition advice is everywhere – How do you know what to trust? EMC Lifestyle – Many diplomas, certificates, training programs, and schools exist for someone to become a “nutrition expert.” And since anyone can claim to be a nutrition expert, how do you know if someone is really trained and qualified to provide credible nutrition information? What is a reliable source of nutrition information? Registered Dietitians (RD) are specially trained to translate nutrition research into practical advice that can have a positive impact on health, including: • An accredited 4-year or equivalent university degree;

• An accredited dietetic internship or equivalent supervised practical training; • Successful completion of the Canadian Dietetic Registhe responsibility and power to tration Examination; investigate and take action.

was a really cool experience,” Mariah added. Miss Teen Ontario World has also opened up a few more doors for Mariah and she may be doing more modelling in the future. Queen of the Furrow For Marley, whose uncle is a director with the Lanark Plowmen’s Association, the decision to enter came much easier than her sister. The outgoing teen traditionally volunteers at plowing matches and opted to try her hand at the Queen of the Furrow pageant. Instead of swimwear, Marley had to brush up on how to plow the perfect furrow. “I like public speaking so I decided to go for it and I won. I was really surprised,” she said. Marley actually won the Queen of the Furrow competition in 2011 and represented Lanark County at the IPM in September 2012, becoming close with Leeds County Queen of the Furrow Katie Chant who she participated against, along with other 33 girls, for the title of Ontario Queen of the Furrow. While she didn’t win, one of the highlights waxs meeting Wayne Gretzky’s father, Walter. “It was also fun meeting all the other girls from the different counties and listing all of the cool things about (Lanark) County,” Marley remarked. “You find out about other counties and that Lanark County really has so much to offer.” “...I’m proud of where I come from and the history behind everything,” she continued. Their mother’s pageant experience was quite different than her daughters’. Elaine was crowned Miss Lanark during a winter carnival and was required to skate around the arena in Lanark and face a panel of judges. She said she is proud of both of her daughters and their accomplishments. “They are both very independent girls who definitely speak their mind,” Elaine stated. Mariah joked that her mom

public is not protected. Beware of unqualified individuals Because the title of “nutritionist” is not regulated in Ontario, it is used by many people who do not have the same credentials as a Registered Dietitian and are not qualified to do the type of nutrition counseling they offer. Some words in “professional” titles or services may be used to make them look credible but do not guarantee it. Here are some to watch for: • Registered – e.g., Registered Holistic Nutritionist, Registered Nutrition Professional. Just because a title is “registered” does not mean it is covered by the Regulated Health Professions Act. • Certified – e.g., Certified Nutrition Practitioner or Consultant, Certified Nutritionist. Anyone who completes a training program can receive a certificate and become “certified” regardless of the quality of the

program. • Incorporated – e.g., Being incorporated means that a new business or agency has been formed. Being incorporated makes something a legal body, but not accountable as a health professional. • Clinical Nutrition – Anyone can claim to practice clinical nutrition, so if this is listed as one of their areas of expertise, they still may or may not be adequately trained.

nutrient deficiencies. • IgG blood screening for food allergies – this shows the body’s normal physiological reaction to food proteins but does not indicate allergic disease. • Detox diets to rid the body of contaminants – the body does this for us already. • Light-to-skin tests to detect nutrient deficiencies – there is no evidence to indicate that this works.

When in doubt, get your nutrition information from a Registered Dietitian and steer clear of anyone who suggests: • Large doses of vitamins will help with a large number of conditions – this is not evidence-based. • Hair analysis to detect the body’s nutrition status – hair is not a reliable indicator of nutritional health. • “Hidden food allergies” are the cause of a wide variety of health problems – again, not based on any evidence. • Computer-scored “nutrient deficiency test” as the basis for prescribing vitamins – computer programs can do dietary analysis, but cannot indicate

Out of fabric softener sheets for the dryer? Dampen an old washcloth and pour a capful of liquid fabric softener on it. Toss it in the dryer with a load of wet clothes. You can also save used dryer sheets and use them instead of the washcloth.

Visit to Vancouver gave spring a nice kick-start

shoe leather in the process. Walking in Vancouver is a little more challenging than in some communities because being a seaside centre, some of your time on foot is spent going uphill. English Bay We love the coast. Any coast for that matter! We stayed at the Sylvia Hotel, a wonderful independent hostelry on picturesque English Bay. As the name of the bay suggests, the Sylvia reminded us so much of some of the small, privately owned inns we have stayed at in England, Scotland and Ireland. The vine-covered, eight storey hotel is marking its centennial this year. It is not rare for guests to open the drapes in the morning and find a raccoon nestled on the window sill. We also had a close encounter with a skunk at the main entrance on Day 1. The familiar white and black tail was up, in threatening fashion. Fortunately for us he/she was more afraid of us than we were of him/ her. The hotel is right on the edge of Stanley Park, a spectacular 1,000

acre preserve which is one of the major highlights of Vancouver. Hence the wildlife around our hotel! We toured Stanley Park extensively on foot and it was a spring delight with blossoms bursting out everywhere. One day we walked all the way around the sea wall which encloses the famous green space. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a nine kilometre excursion. Along the way we were able to collect shells on the beach. I have never seen such a vast collection of shells. There were untold trillions, the most I have encountered on any seashore and we have visited many during our travels. Frank says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sign of the health of the Pacific along Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s west coast, with sea life thriving. The vast number of shorebirds feasting on this shellfish smorgasbord provides further testimony. English Bay is post card beautiful. Because we stayed in a hotel overlooking the inlet we were treated to so many wonderful scenes, including one of the prettiest sunsets Kathy and I have ever witnessed. Large ships from around the world lie at anchor in English Bay and that simply adds to the magic of the place. We were told an ocean going freighter can wait for up to two weeks before receiving permission to enter the busy Port of Vancouver. As I said, we love the seaside. Another of the pleasures of our visit was the chance to take a ferry across Burrard Inlet to North Van-

couver where we enjoyed lunch at a seaside market. Fish and shellfish of course. If you go to Vancouver donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss the False Creek Ferries. False Creek is another, smaller inlet which divides downtown from the rest of the city. The ferries are small, often tiny, vessels which take passengers across the creek or along its length to various docks in the downtown area. Wendy calls the ferries â&#x20AC;&#x153;cuteâ&#x20AC;? and if there were ever cute ferries, then surely the False Creek ferries are them! A short ride took us to Granville Island and a visit to the popular weekend market located there. It is off season so fortunately we were not engulfed in the shoulder-toshoulder crowds which frequent the very interesting market during summer and fall. Frank says that in the past they have been forced out by the throngs who flock to Granville Island on many weekends. We had a grand opportunity to enjoy the market experience on offer there during the off season. Famous districts Our travels took us through all of Vancouverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s famous neighbourhoods. Yaletown, Gastown, Chinatown and Coal Harbour are among the main downtown districts. Vancouver has a vast Oriental population and its Chinatown is the largest in Canada. That status is beSee COLUMN page 40

company them on one of their frequent returns to B.C. This spring our schedules dovetailed and we are very pleased. We saw and learned a great deal, which of course is one of the many bonuses of travel. Kathy and I have spent a lot of time in Europe over the course of two decades. We are now embarking on a plan to see more of our own country. Vancouver is a very good place to start! One of the surest, safest and most informative ways of seeing the highlights of any large centre is to take the local â&#x20AC;&#x153;hop on, hop offâ&#x20AC;? bus tour. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been on dozens of such tours and have enjoyed them all. But the trolley we took in Vancouver was undoubtedly the longest and most comprehensive tour we have ever taken. We prefer to make a round trip first, take in as much as possible and then pick out some locations to hop off and have a closer look. The beauty is that you can then hop on the trolley or bus and it takes you back where you started. One of the greatest travel innovations of all time! Of course with Wendy and Frank as guides we had no worries on this occasion. They know Vancouver well and that meant we were able to avoid some of the pitfalls which normally plague first-time visitors to any big city. Knowing the short cuts is an important start. Even at that we put a lot of kilometres on our personal odometers, wearing out a little

EMC Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I am just back from Vancouver where the only snow is on the mountain peaks and the warmer breezes from the Pacific Ocean offered a welcome start to spring. Yes, the same spring we have waited on for so long in eastern Ontario and which is finally gaining on us! This was the first visit to Vancouver and Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beautiful west coast for Kathleen and me. With any luck it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be our last. We were suitably impressed. We were fortunate to be in the company of friends Frank and Wendy LeBlanc who were the â&#x20AC;&#x153;trip guidesâ&#x20AC;? for our week in what is sometimes referred to as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Lotus Landâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Vancouver is well ahead of us in welcoming spring. The Rhododendrons were already blooming in Stanley Park, daffodils swayed in the gentle breeze all over the city and fruit trees were showing strong signs of blossoming along the expansive avenues which run up from the sea. The grass is always green in Vancouver. But this was the greenest grass I have seen since last summer in the United Kingdom. The Maritime climate in both locations is ideal for growing grass. Last summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drought in our part of the world turned almost everything alive into various shades of brown.

Vancouver most people would rather not talk about. Incredibly Vancouver is the second most expensive city in the world to live in, next to Singapore. Vancouver’s impressive skyline is dominated by condominiums. The smallest sell for $1.5 million or more (no, that’s not a typo). Foreign investment, mainly from the Orient, has poured into Vancouver in recent years. There are too many condos for my liking and many more to come judging by what we saw. Even a small war-time house in the downtown area sells for $1 million plus. Not for the home itself, but for the valuable land it sits on.

ing drive. In that spirit a donation bucket went around a few times at the celebration of life, and over $1,100 was raised for CKCU in Chopper’s memory. The show will carry on, recognizing the big shoes and expectations left by Chopper will guide their direction for a long time to come and will continue to keep exposing Canadian folk music to its truly worldwide listeners. I expect there will be other recognitions of his legacy. Thanks Chopper and all your friends you inspired. RIP. I wanted to give a heads up to all you jazz fans that Clay Young is returning to Fiddleheads for their wonderful Jazz Brunch on Easter Sunday. Clay states: “This is, I think, my 15th year there; J.J. Stewart and Pat Moore have helped keep the morsel of jazz that Perth enjoys, alive. Later on, guys with me are: Scott Poll, clarinet on April 14; Dave Renaud, clarinet, April 28; and Dave Renaud, Tom Denison, bass, and myself have an Ottawa Jazz Festival gig on Wednesday June 26 at the Rideau Centre.” My parents and I love to enjoy Clay and his visitors in the beautiful surroundings of the atrium of the Code’s Mill building. It’s always a sweet time. Upcoming events April 5: New Country Rehab – backroom of Perth Restaurant. This amazing group started playing in tribute, covering Hank Williams and evolved by taking their traditional country roots and dislike for “new country”, so prevalent today and developing their “anti-new country” sound, a blend of old school country, bluegrass, folk, roots, blues, which has been turning heads around the world. Check them out! This is a CD release for them and tickets are available from Sue at 613-267-7902. April 26th: Bluesmaster Suzie Vinnick and country picker extraordinaire Wendell Ferguson are appearing at Music On McLean House Concerts at Perth Restaurant. Both amazing players, this will be a night to remember as Suzie plays with our heartstrings with her award winning blues and Wendell amazes with his playing and makes you wet your pants with his humorous songs. Reservations are available by calling 613-267-7902 or at the Perth Restaurant. Support live music forever.

In the expansive marinas there are lots of vessels for sale during a time of recession. Some of the huge yachts on offer were going for a cool $3 million. Yes, Vancouver is an expensive city to live in and it’s not cheap for visitors either. But if you want to see a particularly beautiful part of our country up close, it is definitely the place to go. Among the many highlights of our visit, Stanley Park, English Bay and the False Creek ferries, as well as the spectacular mountains which guard the impressive city will long remain in my memory.

ing threatened however as younger residents of Chinese extraction assimilate into the general population and abandon Chinatown. The place is a little down on its heels these days. We were told the Chinese community which has developed in suburban Richmond, B.C. is now threatening to overtake its downtown predecessor. Richmond’s Chinatown is much more modern and far more vibrant from all accounts. Make no mistake about it, Vancouver is a big city and it comes complete with big city problems. Sirens are a constant presence and our brief look at East Hastings Street on the city’s downtown east side revealed a side of

Irene’s, honoring Allan “Chopper” McKinnon and he would have been humbled at the turn out and number of his friends who performed. Karen Flanagan-McCarthy emceed the evening of song and stories. Notable to me were performances by Pat Moore and later Sneezy Waters & Vince Halfhide. I’d previously enjoyed Sneezy’s prowess and had heard Vince accompany too many to mention previously but this was the first time I heard Vince’s songwriting and was quite impressed. Arthur McGregor played a couple of tunes and indicated the Ottawa Folklore Centre are working on developing a songwriting award in Chopper’s name; details yet to be determined. Lynn Miles dedicated a beautiful song she’s been working on for four years called ‘Tears’ to Chopper. Terry Tufts played a couple of tunes and spoke briefly reminding us not to wait until friends die but rather start telling those who impress or whom we love how much they mean to us now, while they’re still with us. (I’ve been passing this idea forward since.) He followed these thoughts up with a brand new song he dedicated to Chopper, so far titled ‘I Love You All’… touching sentiments and a tasty song. Melwood Cutlery touchingly changed his song ‘Jimmy’s Room’ to ‘Chopper’s Room’ and we all joined in, sounding like an Ottawa Folk Festival choir. It was nice to hear him back a couple of others with his harmonica. I hadn’t heard Christine Graves or Lynne Hanson in quite a while so was thrilled to hear their lovely pipes. You could feel the love in the room as Chopper was remembered by so many of his friends and admirers. It was an honour to be there. CKCU’s Canadian Spaces was Chopper’s baby and he treated it so tenderly. He and his show’s ‘Space Cadets’ (listeners) were the top fundraisers every year as part of the station’s annual fundrais-

EMC Lifestyle – We turn on the radio and instantly hear music. We enjoy attending concerts or festivals and in all these cases most people have little knowledge of the tremendous amount of planning, coordination and information sharing that goes on behind the scenes. Yes, there are the music makers, those fine creative musicians but there are also the music support people who make what we enjoy, happen. The Canadian folk music community lost a visionary, one of those often behind the scenes guys, a long standing ambassador as Allan “Chopper” McKinnon, host of Carleton University’s radio station CKCU’s Saturday morning show Canadian Spaces (93.1 FM) for more than 33 years passed on recently. “Chopper” seems to have always worked in the music business, in one way or another. I know he managed in the ‘70s the Toronto Folklore Centre and later the Ottawa Folklore Centre. He was one of the instigators of the Ottawa Folk Festival where he and Karen Flanagan-McCarthy co-hosted for 15 years. He’s been an artist manager, show producer, artistic director, not-for-profit board member, mentor and friend to countless musicians and industry professionals. As an honorary ‘Space Cadet’, I was so thankful being able to start regularly listening in several years ago, via “the interweb” to Canadian Spaces as most of my home radios couldn’t pull the show in every Saturday morning. To hear most of Canada’s singer/songwriters starry talent at some point or other either live or being interviewed by Chopper was always such a refreshing piece of real radio that opened my ears to so many. I spoke to Chopper backstage at Stewart Park Festival a couple of times as well as at his well polished stool at Irene’s in Ottawa and his knowledge of Canadian folk music was legendary. CKCU hosted Canadian Spaces for the first time without Chopper on this planet with Chopper’s co-host of late, Chris White, and guests including Lynn Miles, Arthur McGregor, Ian Tamblyn and many by phone, including Rebecca Campbell from Toronto shared stories that brought both tears to my eyes and laughter that hurt my ribs.

1950 Pontiac Streamliner brings back a flood of memories EMC Lifestyle – Well-known tomato farmer Herm Dick and I were having coffee recently around 6 a.m. at Tim Hortons on Erie Street South in Leamington when he mentioned that his dad was fond of buying Pontiacs. The list included a ’46, a ’50, a ’52, a ’56 and others. A photo of a 1950 Streamliner is reproduced here to bring back memories for Herm, who remembers driving all his dad’s Pontiacs. The family Pontiacs were purchased from Ray A. Young, a Pontiac-Buick dealer in Leamington for many years. Ray was born in nearby Wheatley in 1899 and sold his first GM car when he was still a teenager. When he finally retired in 1981, he had been selling cars for GM for 64 years, a cross-Canada record that is probably still unbroken. I landed my first summer job at age 15 in 1957 as the “wash boy” at 50 cents an hour on Ray Young’s used car lot. I still remember a 1950 Pontiac parked on the lot with that big dazzling grille. The car was seven years old at the time and I spent lots of elbow grease trying to bring out the best shine possible on all that chrome. It was a fastback, just like the one pictured here, and I enjoyed looking at its sleek silhouette

and at the famous Pontiac streaks on the hood and trunk lid. The car you see in the picture is currently owned by Paul Calderone of Toronto, who purchased his dark blue metallic 1950 Pontiac Streamliner two-door fastback four years ago from Al Webster, a classic car dealer north of Toronto. A decoding of the V.I.N. indicated Paul’s car had been built in Southgate, California. Under the hood is a 239 cubic inch flathead inline six cylinder cranking out 90 horsepower and bolted to a three-speed columnshift transmission. Also available that year was a flathead straight eight with 268 cubic inches cranking out 108 horsepower. The year 1950 was a record setter for Pontiac with nearly 466,500 cars, breaking the previous all-time record in 1941.

Paul Calderone’s beautiful 1950 Pontiac Streamliner is photographed in Toronto by Lake Ontario. Note the outside sun visor, rear view mirrors, fender skirts, and wide whitewall tires. Pontiacs sold. Chevrolet also brought out its first hardtop that same year, the Bel Air. The Pontiac nameplate has now been discontinued, but as long as Pontiacs like Paul Calderone’s 1950

Full Circle Theatre hopes sold out events turn into musical theatre excitement EMC Entertainment – Following up on SRO (Standing Room Only or Sold Right Out) events at the Full Circle Theatre (FCT) this past week, Perth’s BarnDoor Productions (BDP) is turning their efforts to what should be the musical theatre event of the season at FCT. ‘Jacques Brel Is Alive And Well And Living In Paris,’ BDP’s 88th production, hits the stage on April 12 and promises a whirlwind of music, colour, lights and great theatre. Jacques Brel is a show that is vastly different time it is staged and BarnDoor’s new vision of it aims to bring the late-60s musical into a new century. The show was groundbreaking in its off-Broadway debut in January 1968, anticipating the bookless, character-less musical form that ‘Hair’ brought to Broadway four months later. But while ‘Hair’ was a show that was very much about issues of the 1960s, ‘Jacques Brel Is Alive And Well’ is built around songs that are timeless in their content. It’s an all-music musical and the emotional intensity required by the show is unique – every one of the show’s 27 songs is a small drama in itself, requiring not just singing ability from its performers but the need to create a fresh set of characters and a fresh new story with each number. The musical is a physical challenge. The whole show is carried, in BarnDoor’s case, by five performers who sing, dance, clown and cry their way through a score that moves from laughter to nostalgia, from tears to joy in songs about life, death, loss, love, girls, dogs, bulls, carousels and much more. Some songs are Latin in flavour, some are rag-time, some are jazzy, some pure rock and others are of that remarkable style known as

French cabaret – small, intense songs about huge emotional upheavals that move their audience deeply but are quickly replaced with something else entirely. The show’s band is challenged as well. Songs change tempo, key, musical styles and emotional levels constantly, working from the smallest pianissimo to the heaviest fortissimo, from achingly slow to frighteningly fast – often within the same song. In particular, one of Brel’s more famous songs, ‘Carousel,’ begins with the slow gentleness of a merry-go-round starting up and builds to a remarkable four-part, highspeed climax that leaves audience, and performers, gasping. As if all that weren’t enough, BarnDoor is challenging itself technically as well, calling on the full resources of the Full Circle Theatre, and beyond, to create a piece of theatre that moves seamlessly through its two acts and its kaleidoscope of emotion and images. There are songs that will make you laugh, songs that will make you think, songs that will make you cry and, in the end, a piece of theatre will let you leave excited and highly entertained. BarnDoor Productions’ ‘Jacques Brel Is Alive And Well And Living In Paris’ will be memorable and unique – a theatre event unlike anything you’ve seen in Perth in a long time. ‘Jacques Brel Is Alive And Well And Living In Paris’ runs April 12, 13, 18, 19, 20 at 8 p.m. and April 14 and 21 at 2 p.m. Tickets for Jacques Brel and details on it and other events at Full Circle Theatre (including full details on BDP’s 2013-2014 season) are on BarnDoor’s website: www. barndoorproductions.ca.

EMC News – The Lanark Chapter of the Canadian Association of Retired Persons (CARP) is cooperating with Janet Crawford of White Lake, to encourage older adults to consider pole walking as a fun way to get outdoors and get low-impact exercise. Nordic pole walking provides both a low-impact cardiovascular workout and resistance training. Pole walking exercises 90 per cent of your muscle mass and therefore has greater benefits, such as: increase in strength and stability, greater weight loss, prevention of chronic diseases such as diabetes, osteoporosis, high blood pressure and heart disease. Please note you do not have to be an athlete to gain the benefits of this highly effective physical activity! If you can walk, you can do this! How do you get started? What about the poles? Crawford will be holding free instructional clinics throughout

This Week’s Pets

EMC Lifestyle – This week, I’d like to introduce you to Boots, Hank and Bella. They were brought to LAWS when their owner, who took extremely good care of her cats, passed away and there was nobody else to care for them. They have been with us since March 16, and Hank and Boots are now at Natural Pet Foods in Carleton Place and we hope that these cats can once again find love and care in a new forever home. homes, too! Abel is a quiet dignified four-year-old white male with brown markings. He tends to be a quiet boy but enjoys being petted and talked to, looking out windows and taking care of his beautiful coat. He is sure to win your heart with his easygoing, gentle personality. Please stop by LAWS to visit Abel today.

Boots is a lovely black medium long-haired boy of about six and a half-yearsold. He is black with very striking green eyes and lovely long white whiskers. Boots also has a few white marking on his chest and white “boots.” He loves his

brother Hank, who is a long hair grey with some blushcoloured hair. He is also about six and a half-yearsold and loves to snuggle. Both Boots and Hank must have been used to regular brushing as they love it.

Bella is a short hair white and black female cat who also is a snuggle bug. All three cats are very healthy, playful and ready to find their forever home(s). They are such beautiful cats! We also would like to introduce two handsome little guys who would be thrilled to find their forever

April 21st–27th Willie is the volunteer pick of the week. This handsome boy absolutely loves being brushed and petted, prefers to be king of the castle and would love to be the main man in your life. He is quite insulted about being picked up and brought to the shelter and feels this must be a mistake. He is a take charge kind of guy – confident, handsome and large framed. Wee Willie would love the opportunity to have his own home in the country where he can bird watch, take naps and be your best companion. He looks forward to having you meet him!

Experience poverty maze in Lanark County with ‘Take a Walk in My Shoes’ April 24 EMC Events – The Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit, in partnership with the Social Service Worker Program at Algonquin College Perth, is hosting an interactive workshop called ‘Take a Walk in My Shoes.’ This free event, taking place on April 24 at Perth-Upon-Tay Legion, aims to raise awareness about the barriers people experiencing poverty face, and the day to day stigma that is often associated with poverty. Participants will navigate through a maze where they will experience the challenges of trying to secure some of the most basic necessities in life. Poverty affects everyone, including the families living in Leeds, Grenville and Lanark. A total of 9.3

per cent of households in our area are food insecure (Canadian Community Health Survey, 2011. Ontario Share File. Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care), suggesting that many families do not have access to safe, affordable food that they like to eat, that helps them to be healthy and that they can get in ways that make them feel good about themselves. Close to 11,000 families in Leeds, Grenville and Lanark are living on $19,000 or less per year (Canadian Community Health Survey, 2011. Ontario Share File. Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, Statistics Canada, 2006, Census Population). This is not nearly enough income to raise a family and pay for things like, food, clothing,

shelter, health expenses, transportation and childcare. “Students in the social service worker program at Algonquin College support people affected by poverty and recognize that affordable housing, fresh food, and transportation are not accessible for many people in Lanark County,” says Lisa Shaw-Verhoek, professor in the social service worker program at Algonquin College Perth Campus. “This workshop will provide a unique experiential opportunity for anyone with an interest to explore this multi-faceted problem and to brainstorm solutions” says ShawVerhoek. “Having access to healthy, safe and affordable food and housing is essential to being healthy, and not

Alzheimer Society works to remove stigmas EMC Lifestyle - Even though Alzheimer awareness month has come to an end our mission at the Alzheimer Society of Lanark County hasn’t. This year our awareness campaign is “See Me, Not My Disease…..Let’s Talk about Dementia”. We will be working very hard to remove the stigma that people with Alzheimer’s disease live with every day. “She has lost her marbles” or “he has old-timer’s disease” may seem like harmless things to say about someone who has been diagnosed with the disease, however, the truth is they are harmful and hurtful words. People who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia are still who they have always been; unique, educated, able body people. They now have the challenge of living with a disease that is slowly taking away all the memories they have developed throughout their lifetime. “It’s very interesting to see how people close to me act. It’s almost as if they are afraid of bringing up the subject. Being a cancer survivor, I know that I was constantly asked how I was doing while I was going through treatment. With Alzheimer’s, no

one asks.” – Person with dementia, UK World Alzheimer Report 2012. So, now we are asking ourselves, “What can we do for a person who has Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia?” That is where our campaign comes in. “See me, not the disease”. See the person, see their strengths, be involved in their life and learn about the disease and what you can do as a family member, friend or co-worker for this person. The Alzheimer Society of Lanark County’s Education & Support Coordinators are here to provide a variety of educational opportunities for people in our community. Learn about the disease, how to communicate with someone affected with the disease or how to keep your brain and body healthy with “Heads Up for Healthier Brain”. If you are caring for someone with this disease you can attend one of our many Learning Series, or a caregiver support group. You can also come into

our office and speak with one of our Education & Support Coordinators. They can help you understand the disease and the people who are living with it. Education & Support Coordinators will also speak at public events and groups covering a wide variety of subjects on this disease. Right now, more than 747,000 in Canada are living with some form of dementia. In the next 20 years, this number will reach 1.4 million. The risk doubles every five years after the age of 65 and people as young as 40 have been diagnosed with a form of dementia. The time is now to erase the stigma that has been around too long and open up our minds and our hearts to those who are living with Alzheimer’s disease and the ones who care for them. We are here to help our community. Contact us at 613-2640307, 613-256-3113 or email alz@storm.ca Submitted by Robin Hull, Education & Support Coordinator.

Pension income-splitting – why it works and how to do it Even for younger people, doing the splits can be difficult but, believe it or not, doing the splits becomes easier as you mature. Of course, what we’re talking about here is not physically doing the splits but financially – as in splitting your pension income with a spouse or common-law partner to save on taxes. The federal government allows eligible retirees to save on income tax by letting couples shift up to 50% of the higher earner’s eligible pension income to the lower earning partner who is taxed at a lower rate, reducing the tax bite for both of you. (By the way, you don’t actually have to pay the shifted income to your partner, you simply report it for tax purposes.) To qualify for pension income-splitting, you and your partner must be Canadian residents and either married or living in a common-law relationship. Regardless of your age, income from these sources is eligible for income splitting: • Lifetime pension, bridging payments, or

Manage Your Money annuity payments from a registered pension plan or foreign pension plan. • Payments to a surviving spouse from investments held within a Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) or Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF) annuity contract resulting from the death of the original annuity owner. At age 65, income from these sources also becomes eligible for pension income-splitting: • Payments from your investments held within a RRIF. • The interest component of the annuity payments under a contract purchased with non-registered funds. You can qualify for pension income splitting even if you are receiving a periodic pension benefit and have started a second career. But your income may change year-to-year, so you should frequently reevaluate to determine if you still qualify for pension income-splitting and the

percentage of income that should be transferred to the lower earner in order to maximize tax savings. Pension incomesplitting is a valuable taxreduction strategy for most retirees – but to be certain it’s right for you, check out the tax implications of income-splitting -- and get good info on other tax-saving strategies – by talking to your professional advisor.

Why this forum now? Changing climate trends are already touching many areas of our lives, from the local economy and tourism to peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health. A warning of possible spring flooding came as recently as March 7 from the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority, stating that nearrecord snowpack could melt quickly, depending on weather conditions, resulting in flooding of vulnerable areas. Meanwhile last July was the driest since 1931, part of a serious drought throughout Lanark County, accompanied by extreme heat warnings. Wetlands are still in recovery mode. And who can forget the ice storm of 1998? Our small towns and largely rural communities must develop plans and strategies to attempt to slow down accelerating rates of climate change related to global warming and to adapt to new climate trends. It is certainly not too soon or too late to begin such planning, and in Ontario

there is already an example for us to consider. The Lake Simcoe watershed area has an official climate change action plan in place following extensive consultations with the public, municipalities, scientists, economic development, First Nations and Metis peoples, environmental and academic groups and more. This plan which began as a study by the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources will be discussed at the forum as a possible model which could be customized for this area, its boundaries to be determined. Questions, questions, and maybe some answers Discussion topics will focus on our state of readiness to cope with climate-related challenges. How will dry riverbeds and lower lake levels threaten some species or our water supply? Will the beauty of our natural environment be affected by the changing landscape? What about the consequences for tourism, property values, agriculture, food security and more? Just think of the dollars required to rebuild damaged infrastructure after severe storms or of the losses that farmers suffer when crops fail. This meeting will also provide opportunity for those affected already to share their challenges and concerns, and for everyone to consider do-able followup actions, including building a local climate action network of our own. Where is leadership coming from? In the absence of adequate planning from higher levels, demand must come from below. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s us, everyone! On April 15, panelists will discuss what they think will be needed to guide us through the coming changes, and the Lake Simcoe plan. Appropriate actions that individuals can take will be suggested and the need for extensive on-going collaboration amongst all sectors will be emphasized. Public input is vitally important for a made-in-Lanark strategy. Come to the forum on April 15 to discover what we can do here and now. The event is free and refreshments served before the meeting starts. See you then!

Toyota rules at Monte Carlo conservation rally

viability of alternatively powered autos and the message is getting through. Sandy Di Felice of Toyota Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s external affairs department found a perfect example of this when she spoke with a local family who came out to see the rally. A grandfather, son and two year-old grandson were observing the cars at an overnight pit-stop and when Sandy approached the toddler to ask why he came, he replied in French â&#x20AC;&#x153;pour voir les autos qui ne font pas de bruitâ&#x20AC;? (to see the cars that make no noise). I always count my blessings when I can combine two or more of my favorite interests at once and recently I had this opportunity at the Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first Community Health Fest. This trade-show style event was held recently in the town arena and showcased a variety of health care providers and services. A group that I volunteer with,

The looks of shock on peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s faces was worth the price of admission when they learned that (depending on their rate of consumption) they wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be safe to drive until late the next morning or as late as the afternoon in some cases. This device really demonstrated the reason why many police road-side enforcement programs are successful on Saturday and Sunday mornings in getting impaired drivers off the road.

the Carleton Place Drug Strategy Committee, manned a booth and provided a seminar on youth drug use and suicide risks. The transportation side of the coin (my other passion) came in the form of a very engaging Ontario Ministry of Transportation display provided by a dedicated MTO Regional Planner who joined our drug strategy group for the day. Josee Bessette brought along two very effective and educational pieces of technology to drive home the lesson about the risks of drinking and driving. The first was a set of specially designed vision goggles that simulated the effect that alcohol has on our most important sense. Visitors were encouraged to don a pair of these goggles and then try to walk a straight line (heel to toe) and pick up a set of keys at the end of the line. The results were hilarious. But the star demonstration was Joseeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Intoxi-clock. This oversized calculator connected to a power-point projector allowed the public to see the blood alcohol content (BOC) results of an evening of partying. Individuals supplied information such as age, sex, their favorite alcoholic beverage, and how many drinks they enjoy

EMC Lifestyle - Words like â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;greenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and phrases such as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;environmentally friendlyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; usually donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come to mind when thinking of motor-sports, but Toyota Canada scored a major victory recently in a Monte Carlo rally thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about conservation. As part of the Federation Internationale de lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Automobile Alternative Energies Cup Season, the Monte Carlo Rally event held in March marks the first of 12 annual green rallies, including one in Montreal. Drivers and their navigators are tasked with completing a 1,500 km/four day course through the scenic and hilly terrain of Monaco, southern France and Italy on sometimes narrow twisting roads. Eight classes of alternatively powered vehicles take part in a rally that scores driving teams on speed accuracy and fuel consumption rather than the fastest finish. The entries ranged from solar-powered prototypes to gasoline-electric hybrids. Our Toyota Canada team took an off-the-shelf Prius PHV (plug-in hybrid vehicle) which had no modifications save the installation of a rally timing/navigation computer. Vinh Pham of Toyota Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s advanced technology and powertrain division was behind the wheel and his navigator was rally veteran Alan Ockwell. They earned their berth at the Monte Carlo event by winning last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s green rally in Montreal. Vinh reported that the Prius PHV performed flawlessly over narrow roads and extreme elevations of almost 1,000 meters. The plug-in feature of this fuel sipper allows the vehicle to operate totally on electricity from a dedicated battery and a dash-mounted selector switch allowed Vinh and Alan to use this power-cell when it would provide the most benefit. At the finish line, the Prius PHV earned the title of the most fuel-efficient hybrid and came in fifth overall in a field of 113 entrants. The average fuel economy clocked by this Toyota over the course was 3.9 L/100 km or 72.43 mpg! One of the purposes of events such as these is to demonstrate the

EMC Events – On Tuesday, April 9, Lanark County residents are invited to a free presentation by two remarkable men whose stories of hope and reconciliation have inspired many. The Lanark County Community Justice Program (LCCJP) has invited Raouf Omar and Claude Weil, authors of the acclaimed book ‘Light Behind the Darkness: Stories of Compassion from the Holy Land’ to share their message with our community. These two Canadians, (Raouf, a Palestinian, whose family was displaced by the creation of the Israeli state, and Claude, a former Israeli soldier) became self-described “soul brothers” after a chance meeting at Raouf’s restaurant in Ottawa. In the book’s foreword, David O. Ellis writes “In a world increasingly subject to incompatible ideologies, warfare, global pandemics, and human suffering, the gift of human compassion is more essential than ever…To be the recipient of an act of compassion forever changes one’s soul and enhances the fellowship of humanity.” This message of reconciliation is at the core of the principles of restorative justice, which the community justice program brings to Lanark County. After an incident, those affected, including wrong-doers and victims, are brought together in order to facilitate discussion on the impacts of crime on those directly
