Historic day in Perth as OPP officially welcomed to town By TIFFANY LEPACK tlepack@perfprint.ca

EMC News - It was both an important and historic day for members of the Perth Police Service on April 6 as they officially transitioned to become members of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP). Thirteen officers and one civilian took the oaths of office and secrecy while holding a Bible in their right hands, in front of their superiors, family and many dignitaries. They wore new OPP uniforms, received new warrant cards, badges and identification cards but it was stressed the community of Perth will continue to have the same strong police service to which they are accustomed. Perth Mayor John Fenik admitted to the large crowd who had gathered at the Algonquin College Perth Campus that he

was not sure what to say on this historic day – that no one would want to hear him speak on the process to change from municipal police service to OPP as that would take eight hours, so he decided to speak on what he knew well: community. He described those who founded Perth as strong, courageous, dedicated compassionate people who forged out of wilderness. Those same characteristics are still present in the officers who will continue to serve the community. “It’s not about the superficial things that surround us, the colour of the uniform or the design of it – the bottom line is not about what is outside but the value system within. People will soon forget the superficial aspects of an individual. What they will remember is how a person carried themselves and the actions they took,” said Fenik. “The OPP have always

been part of our community and always will be part of our community. I welcome these officers on this truly historic day.” OPP commissioner Chris Lewis called it a special day and he was proud to be present to welcome the new OPP officers. “The Perth Police Service has been a highly respected professional police agency and provided the citizens here with exceptional service,” said Lewis. “However, these dedicated members will now wear the uniform of the OPP. Please know that you have my personal commitment that the OPP will live up to the standards that the people in this community have come to expect and deserve as we move forward together in partnership.” Lewis emphasized they will not let the community down and that the OPP is committed to providing effective,

professional, police services to the people of Perth. “Perth was a strong community when it was policed by the police service and it will be equally strong when policed by the OPP,” said Lewis. “As I say all the time: same people, different uniforms, just part of a different organization.” The former Perth Police officers completed their OPP training in Orillia from March 25 up until the ceremony and have been partnered with the OPP officers to patrol the town as part of the now completed transition. As of April 5, the Perth Police station was closed and all administrative calls to police should be directed to the OPP at 613-267-2626. In case of an emergency people should call 911. The OPP detachment is located at 75 Dufferin St. in Perth just off Highway 7.

Mike Nickerson, holds a copy of the 2009 edition of his book Life, ‘Money & Illusion: Living on Earth As If We Want to Stay’ at the fifth annual Sustainability Fair at the Perth campus of Algonquin College on Thursday, April 4. Nickerson, however, disavows this. “Life is ours,� he says simply, the early spring sunlight filtering down through the large cafeteria windows, onto his books at his table. “We are not human havers, we are human beings.� Under a re-defined economic system, “our material needs get cut back. We can set up a different (system) so that we can celebrate life.� Echoing some of the ‘creative class’ theories of celebrated intellectual Richard Florida, he agreed that while the service sector of employees will continue to grow as manufacturing declines in North America, service workers simply need to be paid more to keep the economy humming along. “If my employees cannot afford to buy my product, I can’t afford to put it out,� he said, paraphrasing the ‘Fordism’ economic model of Henry Ford who paid his workers well, not out of a sense of altruism, but rather on the sound principle that a wellpaid worker could afford consumer goods – like his Model T. “People need to be able to buy what people are producing,� said Nickerson. But just who does he want to see doing the manufacturing? Well, just as charity begins at home, so too does he want to see manufacturing, of sorts, done close to home, providing local solutions to local problems. “I make furniture and that is how I sustain my writing,� he said. For workers in a factory somewhere, “they don’t see the benefit of their work. A human being without a society cannot survive.� With his new, more person-centric economic model, “you get more than

the money you need, you get personally connected,� by leaning heavily on recycling, and using sustainable sources of energy. He charged that the old model of producing as much as possible “is losing its legitimacy. To be a good human being, you need to live as lightly as you can,� is the ethos that is in the ascendancy. “The human family has filled the planet and there is nowhere to grow,� and the economy, the way it is set up now, needs room to grow. The search for “energy independence,� is one example. The old thinking was that if an oil well was tapped in Texas, for example, it would gush oil for about 20 years. “Fracking,� on the other hand, “they are pretty much hollowed-out in a year-and-a-half,� said Nickerson. Since his book ‘Planning for Several Generations’ was published in 1990, there have been different economic crises – from the Dot Com Bubble in 2000, the economic turmoil of 9/11 in 2001, the Great Recession and panic of 2008, which lingers on today. All of these crises have made people more alive to the problems within the capitalist system. “We have to adapt,� said Nickerson. “When a problem comes up, more people get it. Once you get it, you don’t unget it.� While the one-per cent, to borrow from the Occupy movement lingo, may fight to keep their privilege, and the economic system that has allowed them to amass such wealth, Nickerson points out that they too need to be worried – not about some grand economic revolution, but more so, about the perils of doing nothing. “What’ll happen to their standard of living if we don’t do something?� he asks.

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; When it comes right down to it, the world economy is like a game of Monopoly. It may be a little too neat to leave it at that, and Mike Nickerson doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the wrapping-up stage of Monopoly,â&#x20AC;? said Nickerson of the popular board game which, while it has liberated many a rainy afternoon at the cottage of boredom, can also, theoretically, go on for hours upon hours. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At a certain point (in the game) you can see that someone is wining and you quit and congratulate the winner,â&#x20AC;? said Nickerson. We are already at that stage, according to Nickerson, but the presumptive winners want to keep playing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Privatization and austerity is still a way for winners to draw more money,â&#x20AC;? from the game, both literally and figuratively. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you look at a natural eco system, everything is growingâ&#x20AC;Śbut things die.â&#x20AC;? While businesses fail every day, Nickerson, who spoke last week at the fifth annual Sustainability Fair at the Perth campus of Algonquin College on Thursday, April 4, continues on his analogy of the big board game this way â&#x20AC;&#x201C; why play just one game, when you can bring in other players, and get involved in other games that are just entering the game, like emerging markets. Hence, the rush to sign up free trade deals with countries like South Korea these days, and countries further along in the game, like the North American Free Trade Agreement with Mexico in the mid-1990s. But for Nickerson, expanding the board doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just end there. Forget buying up that hotel on Baltic Avenue â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the winners want the school and the hospital too, in real life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they can get the health care and education,â&#x20AC;? they will be happy, Nickerson says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are nibbling at the edges of it.â&#x20AC;? Nickerson, a Lanark resident, founded the Institute for the Study of Cultural Evolution in 1971, and is the author of several books, including â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Change the World I Want to Stay On â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;(1977), â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Planning for Several Generationsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (1990), and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Life, Money & Illusion: Living on Earth As If We Want to Stayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (2006, second edition, 2009). Having an economy that needs to see three per cent growth annually â&#x20AC;&#x153;is not natural,â&#x20AC;? in Nickersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eyes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the structure of our system,â&#x20AC;? said Nickerson, who was slated to address Perth town council on Tuesday, April 9 about the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Transition Townsâ&#x20AC;? movement. Part of this involves looking ahead and getting beyond certain arguments, like the extent of climate change and peak oil. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretend itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s real,â&#x20AC;? he said of the two challenges. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we want to be prepared? Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s look ahead 25 years.â&#x20AC;? While the whole system isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t out of order, to paraphrase that old movie line (â&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;And Justice For Allâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, 1979, starring Al Pacino, directed by Canadian Norman Jewison), it does need changing. The current system â&#x20AC;&#x153;is efficient, if your only goal is money,â&#x20AC;? said Nickerson. But the main thrust of a consumption society is to say that â&#x20AC;&#x153;you need things to be happy.â&#x20AC;?

World-renowned psychic/medium visits Carleton Place April 13 EMC Events – Love never dies and that is the message Blair Robertson psychic/medium hopes his audience comes away with during his appearance in Carleton Place Saturday, April 13. “I want to be an ambassador for the other side. We all die, but our spirits carry on and I want to convey to people that love never dies,” said Robertson. “The North American culture tends to see death as final. We’ve been trained that (they) are in the box, buried but no the spirit is still around. We are often blind to the messages and signs they try and show us.” Robertson will be making an appearance at the Carambeck Community Centre in Carleton Place on April 13 at 7 p.m. He understands that sometimes it is hard for people to travel into Ottawa for events and admits he has a lot of fans in Carleton Place, Almonte and Perth. “This is a nice way to do small intimate events and to experience spirits and deceased loved ones from the other side,” said Robertson. “I’m sensitive to people in small towns and I want to do something great for them.” Robertson has travelled to the valley a number times and calls Carleton Place a great community. “I like the smaller crowds more then the big crowds,” said Robertson. “With a smaller crowd you Submitted photo have more of a chance to be read or Psychic/medium Blair Robertson will be in Carleton Place on Saturday, know someone who was read.” There are only 100 tickets are April 13 for an ‘Evening of Spirit.’

available and there are still a few tickets left for the intimate experience, which is billed as an ‘Evening of Spirit.’ “It’s a spiritual event, not a show. I take what I do seriously but I like to have fun,” said Robertson. “There will be laughter, tears, joy and everyone leaves feeling fantastic.” Robertson is an evidential medium, which is someone who provides messages from the other side and does not like to refer to it as a gift. “I have the ability to sense, hear them and an ability to communicate with them,” explained Robertson. He encourages anyone who may wonder about the other side, to come out. “There are not a lot of mediums in Carleton Place and you will feel

fantastic and leave with a wonderful feeling,” he said. The night will consist of a brief talk on mediumship connections and the spirit work and his background. Robertson was raised in Toronto, has been featured on CTV, the Discovery Channel, Macleans, and is featured every Monday morning on Ottawa radio station, the New Hot 89.9. The event will then move on to a question and answer session where Robertson will try and connect with the other side. The whole night will last two hours and he says people will be astonished. For more information on the event, visit www.blairrobertson. com/tour.

Purchase a rain barrel and support local charity EMC News – Always wanted a rain barrel and never got around to getting one? You’re in luck…two of your favourite charities, Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind and the Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation, are combining forces to bring you a timely, convenient and inexpensive chance to finally get your rain barrel. Rain barrel orders are now being taken for pickup on Saturday, April 20. Pick up is from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the big silver barn at 4082 Rideau Valley Drive (beside Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind Headquarters which is less than one kilometre east of the Rideau Valley Conservation Centre). No household limits and no residency

requirements are imposed…it’s an ideal time to order one for home but perhaps more importantly, one for the cottage, too. Runoff from both city properties and cottage lots into lakes, creeks and storm sewers can be a major source of contamination. Rain barrels effectively and safely reduce the amount of water running directly into your local watercourse or lake (or your storm sewer in the city). The price is $55 per barrel all-inclusive. Additional overflow hose can also be purchased if required. Please order your barrels in advance online (and prepay if possible) at http://rainbarrel.ca/ guidedogs/. Cash will only be accepted for payment on pickup day.

This year’s festival entrants were: Vagabond Theatre, Cornwall with ‘Sex Please We’re Sixty’ (Comedy) by Michael and Susan Parker; Prince Edward Community Theatre with ‘Moon Over Buffalo’ (Comedy) by Ken Ludwig; Domino Theatre, Kingston with ‘Enchanted April’ (Drama) by Matthew Barber; Lindsay Little Theatre with ‘According to Hoyle’ (Comedic Drama) by William Gaminara; Belleville Theatre Guild with ‘Bedtime Stories’ (Comedy) by Norm Foster; Ottawa Little Theatre with ‘Deathtrap’ (Thriller)

As the overall winner of the EODL festival, TNIM will go on to showcase ‘Having Hope at Home’ at the Theatre Ontario Festival, hosted by Kingston’s Domino Theatre May 15 to 19. They will compete against the winners

of the Western Ontario Drama League Festival, the Association of Community Theatres – Central Ontario Festival, and the northern region’s QUONTA festival. This time, the adjudicator will be Irish transplant John P. Kelly who has his own theatre company in Ottawa. An often sought adjudicator, Kelly has been nominated for four consecutive years as Best Director by the Critics Circle and has won the award outright twice. The challenge now will be for the cast of ‘Having Hope at Home’ to keep the play fresh and for set designers, Rod Fournier and Vicki Graham, to cut 20 feet off the width of their set so it can fit into Domino’s theatre space.

EMC Entertainment – It isn’t often that the smallest achieves the status of a giant in any endeavor, but this year Theatre Night in Merrickville (TNIM) was the big winner at the Eastern Ontario Drama League (EODL) Full-Length Spring Play Festival. “This is the first time we’ve won Best Production since 1982,” said Margaret Shearman who directed TNIM’s entry, ‘Having Hope at Home’ by David S. Craig. This year’s Full-Length Spring Play Festival was a travelling event with nine entries from member groups. While the EODL festival is held every year, there are two formats: A travelling festival where the adjudicator travels to each of the entrants venues to watch and judge the plays; and a hosted festival where the entrants travel to one venue. The travelling festival, which is held every four-years can have up to nine entries, while the hosted one has a limit of five entries. “It’s tough for us to go to the hosted festivals because of the distances and the expense,” said Shearman. This year’s travelling festival adjudicator was Denis Johnson, who studied theatre in Ontario, New York and California and holds an M.A. in Educational Drama. He has taught at the University of Toronto, and Brock University and has 25 years experience judging plays at festivals. “You are very lucky to have a group like this one, putting on plays for you,” Johnson told the audience at the public adjudication last Friday evening (April 5) in Merrickville. TNIM’s play was the final entrant to be adjudicated before the awards ceremony at the Travelodge in Belleville on April 7. None of TNIM’s cast or crew was able to attend the awards gala, as they were busy getting ready for their Sunday matinee performance. However, Shearman made it to Belleville and came home with three of the most prestigious awards. “I feel like I’m floating. I’m so excited, and so proud of everyone because the adjudicator thought it was such a great production, ” she said. TNIM beat out its larger cousins to take The Leslie Frost award for Best Production along with the Kingston Trophy for Best Production of a Canadian Play as well as the Margaret White Award for Acting Excellence for Amber Anderson’s delightful portrayal of Carolyn. The group was also nominated for four more awards including the Armagh Sifton-Price Award for Outstanding Technical Achievement for sound; The Peterborough Theatre Guild Award for Set Design; the Deep River Players Award for Best Visual Presentation and the Trentonian and Tri-County Award for Best Director. “It’s tough for us because we’re often competing against companies that have their own theatres,

Board hears about success of teacher learning and leadership program EMC News – The following are highlights from the regular meeting of the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario (CDSBEO) held April 2 at the board office in Kemptville. The Teacher Learning and Leadership Program is an annual project-based professional learning opportunity which is funded at select schools, for various teacher initiated action research projects, by the Ministry of Education. This year, St. Francis de Sales Catholic School in Smiths Falls received funding for an initiative which aims to build teacher capacity and student learning in mathematics through collaboration and assessment. A team of intermediate teachers, along with the special education resource teacher and school administration are working together on the initiative. The rationale for the initial proposal was based on the EQAO (Education Quality and Accountability Office) junior math assessment results. In examining the data, problem solving was identified as the area of greatest need for improvement. The teachers first developed a sequential learning plan for all five strands of mathematics. This strategy allowed for the simultaneous focus on a specific mathematical concept across classes. The process began with a creation day for each strand. During this time, the curriculum expectations were reviewed, and learning goals and success criteria were established. As the unit was taught, teachers were able to co-teach the lessons, offering a rich learning environment for the students. “Once the unit is covered, the students are tested, and the team again meets for a half day of teacher moderation,” explains teacher Crystal Lake. “Student answers are reviewed in accordance with the rubric from the achievement chart. With much debate and professional conversation we decide what a level 1, 2, 3, and 4 answer would look like. We continue this process for every question on the test.” The teachers are required to use their knowledge, experience and curriculum materials to support their thinking. In addition, the process enhances teacher and student discussions around the school, which become more focussed. Through self-assessment processes, the teachers have also noted an increase in their confidence in teaching mathematics, and an increase in student engagement using problem

solving strategies. The school plans to filter this process to additional grades, to further improve and strengthen student achievement in the area of problem solving in mathematics. Overall, the project will also better support special needs students, who will benefit from the additional resources that teachers will access through co-planning and co-debriefing with colleagues from the various grade levels. Building resiliency in students The Ministry of Education supports the implementation of a provincial mental health and addiction strategy, which includes Ontario’s school boards. With the recognition that children’s mental health issues are a growing concern which must be addressed, the CDSBEO has responded through the implementation of specific supports for those who are most vulnerable, or who are experiencing difficulty. In June 2012, the special education department invited Dr. Wayne Hammond to present a two-day workshop. Dr. Hammond’s research and program focuses on building resiliency by developing positive coping mechanisms, and focusing on personal strengths to help those who are most vulnerable, or currently experiencing difficulty. The board initiative, which supports this methodology, began implementation in September through a strategy which assesses learners from Grades 3 to 12. Board students were asked to complete a resiliency diagnostic survey to identify strengths and needs. The data collected from this survey has provided system, school, and student information on which to base next steps for support implementation, to be provided by school and board staff. The initiative will be lead at each school through the appointed mental health lead. Through the identification of strengths, supports can be put in place which will help students to effectively cope with any difficulties. The positive focus of the framework allows vulnerable students to learn what gifts they possess, and to build on those traits and competencies. “The goal is to focus on what is strong, versus what is wrong,” explains Paula Perrault, principal of special education. “Our school teams will help students identify their strengths, to help them explore their preferences, hopes, and intentions, not what we think they need; to develop to

their potential.” The data collected through the assessment shows that overall student vulnerability increases with age, and that resiliency increases through student engagement with teachers. The board has developed a “Formula for School Excellence” which will help to guide teams as they implement this new initiative. Arts program highlighted for St. Michael CHS In 2010, the Ontario Arts curriculum was revised in order to better reflect the current learning needs of students in our rapidly changing world. The revised curriculum gives voice to many powerful statements about the value of a rich arts education, which contributes to the development of multiple intelligences, communication skills, innovation and creativity in students. The new arts curriculum is based on four main ideas: developing creativity, communicating, understanding culture, and making connections. Students at St. Michael Catholic High School in Kempville had the opportunity to present to the board, highlights of some of the very rich arts programs currently offered at the school, and demonstrate how these programs have inspired student learning, and strengthened the school community. The school is blessed with a vibrant, well-rounded arts program which includes visual art, drama, dance, and instrumental music programs, taught by passionate teachers with genuine support for the arts. In addition, the school offers various extracurricular initiatives, one of which includes a distinguished chamber choir, directed by Leela Kowlessar. The choir gave a very uplifting, lively performance of several numbers, one of which included a classical Nigerian folk song titled ‘Mojuba’. A display of African art pieces was set up to enrich the theme for the evening, and photographs of the school dance group performing a traditional African dance, were shown as the choral group sang. During the presentation, the school also played a video highlighting past graduates of St. Michael CHS who have pursued a professional career in the arts, namely music and performance, as a result of the passion and inspiration they received during their high school years.

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

Despite his claims, Reid is raising your taxes DEAR EDITOR: Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox and Addington MP Scott Reid likes to boast that the Conservatives “will not raise taxes.” There’s only one problem: that claim is not true. The Conservatives’ federal budget increases tariffs on everyday items imported from dozens of countries. These rising tariffs are a hidden tax on everything, from clothing and shoes to household cleaning products to televisions. They are also increasing your Employment Insurance taxes. Increasing this tax on jobs is reckless when so many areas of the economy are still struggling. Stephen Harper and his crew are increasing taxes on hospital parking, taxes on life insurance, taxes on safety deposit boxes, taxes for airport security, taxes on credit unions, and the list goes on.

For years now, Conservatives have tried to boast that they never raise taxes. That was easy to do when they took power and inherited a $13 billion surplus from the previous Liberal government. However, these tax-and-spend Conservatives dug themselves into a deep deficit; they increased program spending by almost 40 percent and are now hiking taxes left, right and centre. The next time you see Mr. Reid, remind him to show his constituents some respect and be honest about taxes. No amount of spin or government advertising (that they pay for with your taxes) can change the fact that a tax hike is a tax hike, and we know it. Scott Brison, MP Liberal Party of Canada Finance Critic

COMMENTARY Youth film fest tackles issues EMC Editorial – Many communities ask youth what they’d like to see, but don’t necessarily take their views seriously. A new initiative between the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit and the Kemptville Youth Centre is set out to change that stigma. The organizations have partnered to host MyView Youth Film Festival, which will be highlighted as part of the annual spring celebration in Kemptville, the North Grenville Dandelion Festival (May 25 to 27). This is a great opportunity to allow the young people of Lanark, Leeds and Grenville to exercise their creative bones and make their own films (through YouTube), all while shedding light on the challenges they face day-today and offering solutions. Youth aged 12 to 18 from across the tri-county area can tailor their videos to one of the following categories: My Community, My Culture, My Health, My Future or My Environment. If the opportunity to write, direct and star in your own movie isn’t enough incentive, organizers are upping the ante. Any youth who uploads their video to the MyView Youth Film Festival channel on YouTube (search MyViewFilmFest), will be entered in a draw for a chance to win prizes including $1,000 cash or an iPad, among others. The films will also be screened at the festival and a panel of judges (including local musicians Andrew Hunt and Eric Morotti, as well as Brockville city councillor Leigh Bursey) will select the top entries. For youth who claim communities don’t offer them enough to do to express themselves, the MyView Youth Film Festival is the perfect opportunity to do just that. So brainstorm a topic, grab those cameras and get out there and make your communities proud. For more information, visit www.myviewfilmfest.ca.

Marguirite proves why they call her “Bad” EMC Lifestyle – It wasn’t only that Marguirite was an only child and spoiled beyond belief, but she had a way about her that riled everyone at the Northcote School. Often I couldn’t pin down exactly what it was I didn’t like about the young girl. But there were times it was all too obvious that Marguirite felt about me, exactly as I felt about her. Take the day she decided to walk home from school the long way. She could have just hopped down the road to her house less than half a mile had she chosen. But that day she decided she would go around the concession and walk to the Northcote side road with my little friend Joyce and me. We could have easily done without her company. There were things we wanted to talk about...the new boy in senior fourth for instance. And we wouldn’t dare say a word about him in front of Marguirite because we might as well write it on the blackboard for the whole school to see. Marguirite couldn’t keep a thing to herself. It was a day I will not soon forget.

And I can even remember what I had on that day, which had a lot to do with why I remember the details so well. Mother had made me a blouse out of bleached flour bag material, and to take away the look of its once holding flour, had dyed it a bright green with Ritz dye. And that day I had on this freshly dyed blouse over a white skirt which had come in a hand-me-down box from my aunt in St. Catharines. Mother thought it was far too early in the season for a white skirt, but I prevailed on her saying Marguirite had been in white for days. Well, that day, as we headed out after school, Joyce and I tried to ignore Marguirite as we walked along the Northcote side road. The ditches were full of water from the heavy rains we had that spring, and occasionally we would stop and kick small stones into the water, or coax a frog off the gravel. Marguirite said she had better things to do with her time than talk to frogs and toss stones into a ditch. Joyce suggested she hurry on ahead of us and do them! My friend and I had on black brogue shoes...Marguirite’s were patVice President & Regional Publisher Mike Mount mmount@perfprint.ca 613-283-3182, ext. 104

ent leather, and they soon were covered with sand and dust. We pointed this fact out to her, saying we bet her mother would sure be mad when she got home and saw the mess of her good school footwear. Marguirite assured us her Mother never got mad at her. Joyce rolled her eyes skyward. We didn’t believe her for a minute. I couldn’t wait to get to the end of the side road so that this pest would leave us and head off in the direction that would take her on to her house. What if Marguirite decided to walk down past Briscoes General Store? That would mean she would be with us almost all the way home. The thought just about gave me a sick stomach. Joyce suggested to Marguirite that she would be late for supper if she News Editors: Laurie Weir, Joe Morin, Ashley Kulp REPORTERS: Stacey Roy, Tara Gesner, Desmond Devoy, Tiffany Lepack, Sabine Gibbins DISTRIBUTION: Lori Sommerdyk, 613-284-0124 ,ext. 27 CLASSIFIEDS/REGIONAL ROUNDUP: Fax: 613-283-5909 Judy Michaelis Email: jmichaelis@perfprint.ca Lee Ann Gilligan Email: lgilligan@perfprint.ca Jennifer Coughlin Email: jcoughlin@perfprint.ca

walked with us much farther. Didn’t matter to her…she assured us. Her mother would keep supper warm for her. It was sure different in our house. We better be there when it was time to sit down at the kitchen table or we didn’t eat. She was really getting on my nerves. I decided the best thing to do so that I could endure the rest of the walk to the cross road was to pretend she wasn’t there. I squatted down on my haunches at the edge of the road, peering into the deep dark green water of the ditch. I told Joyce I could see tadpoles…which of course I couldn’t. Joyce squatted too. We squinted into the water pretending to be deeply engrossed in what was in the water-filled ditches. Well, right out of the blue, Marguirite’s foot hit the middle of my back and then within seconds she connected with Joyce sending us both sprawling. We went headlong into the water. It wasn’t deep, but we came up spluttering and rubbing our eyes. All we could see of Marguirite was those spindly legs bolting down the Northcote side road.

ditch first. She held her hand down towards me and helped me onto the side of the road. I could see Joyce staring at me. I followed the direction of her eyes. Great streams of green dye were running from the home made blouse, into the white hand-me-down skirt! I was starting to look like a patchwork quilt. I looked down the road to see if I could catch up to Marguirite. She was just a dot on the Northcote side road. There was nothing to do but head for home. By the time I hit the kitchen door, my clothes were dry and the green water mixed with weeds from the ditch and mud from the road, were caked to my legs. Only then did I burst into tears. Mother stripped my clothes, and even though it wasn’t yet Saturday night, I was given a bath in the copper tub before supper. All the time I lamented about the girl I hated with a passion. And once again Mother called my ordeal character building. I told Mother, after my ordeal with bad Marguirite, I thought I had had just about all the character building I could stand in one lifetime! • 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.

Almonte Amateur Radio Club conducts Women show mussels at emergency communication tests next MVFN lecture April 18 EMC News – “VE3XZT, VE3XZT this is VA3HSP”. This was a typical call that was made many times over the weekend of March 16 when the emergency preparedness group of the Almonte Amateur Radio Club (AARC) conducted a comprehensive coverage check of its radio communication systems. The group provides emergency communications in time of need for, Red Cross, municipal or other agencies as requested and comprises licensed amateur radio operators and other volunteers who will respond to training, exercises and public service activities that require radio communications, including declared emergencies. Control of the exercise was conducted from the emergency operations centre (EOC) located at the Almonte General Hospital (AGH) hence the callsign VA3HSP. The coverage test objectives were to determine the quality and feasibility of communicating with the AGH EOC across Lanark County using the AARC digital and analog radio network. The approach taken was to split the County into areas with defined routes along which the vehicles, equipped with various radios, would travel. Along the routes waypoints were pre-selected and from each one a communication test was carried out with the EOC. Each of the four vehicles was on its assigned route for at least six hours such was the vastness of the area covered. Some roads on the routes were only minimally snow plowed and presented some challenges increasing the time taken to proceed between waypoints. The AARC radio network was expanded in 2012 with the installation of digital radio systems that were able to be purchased through a grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF). As part of the final report to the OTF the results of the radio tests and coverage obtained will be included. The mobile radios used on the tests were supplied through the auspices of the Town of Mississippi Mills and the Federal Government under a program known

as the Joint Emergency Preparedness Program (JEPP). “The results of the tests proved that the AARC network can cover virtually the entire county with mobile radios and in some cases handheld radios (lower power output). In fact coverage was better than expected and particularly good using the new digital equipment known as D-STAR,” said Rob Webb, president of the AARC. “The club is pleased to know that it can provide emergency communications to the

Lanark County community in such a wide area if called upon to do so. I thank all club members who participated in the exercise making it such a success.” The Almonte Amateur Radio Club emergency preparedness group is part of the Lanark/North Leeds Amatuer Radio Emergency Service (ARES).

EMC News – The Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists’ (MVFN) 20122013 public lecture series, Nature Beneath Our Feet, continues April 18 with the seventh presentation, ‘Freshwater Mussels of the Ottawa Valley.’ You do not need to be an expert to enjoy the presentations, just possess a curiosity or appreciation for wild nature. Cottagers, hunters, fishermen, canoeists, hikers, campers, artists and seasoned field naturalists alike will find something to interest them as we explore nature. Refreshments are offered at each lecture. For this lecture, we switch to the aquatic realm beneath our feet with a presentation by Jackie Madill, senior research assistant with the Canadian Museum of Nature. You will have an opportunity to see first hand her collection of shells from mussel species we are likely to find in our area. As a malacologist, she specializes in Canadian freshwater mussels. She also is a hirudinologist, having a love for Canadian leeches. (In addition to her scientific expertise, please note that Madill is highly allergic to scented products such as perfume, soap, and shampoo. Before attending her presentation, MVFN asks that you not put on or use these products.) Mussels belong to the group Mollusca which also includes snails, slugs, clams, scallops, oysters, squid, and octopuses. All these organisms have in common a soft body, no backbone, a muscular foot for crawling or burrowing, and a mantle. In mussels, the mantle produces a pair of hinged shells (often people refer to them as clams). Among aquatic invertebrates, mussels are the longest-lived (many decades) and the largest, reaching 20 centimetres (8 inches) in length! They can be aged approximately by counting the growth rings on their shells. Did you know that close to one-third (300) of the world’s mussel species occur in North America? Of the 55 species that occur in Canada, 41 are found in Ontario. In addition, we also have the zebra mussel, native to the Caspian

First Birthday – First Visit to a Dental Professional The Canadian Dental Association recommends that babies 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. Having your little one see a dentist early helps to develop a worry-free dental relationship, and save money. This is a great time to ask any questions about how and when to clean baby’s mouth, what are tooth-friendly snacks, and talk about fluoride.

Call your dental provider today to book that first appointment. If you do not have a family dental provider, call us at 1-800-660-5853. Want to know if your baby is at risk for decay? Go to www.healthunit.org and click on the interactive quiz

Sea. It was introduced in ballast water released into Lake St. Clair in the mid-1980s and has spread throughout eastern North America. It has contributed to making freshwater mussels the most endangered organism group in North America. In Canada, more than half of our freshwater mussel species require conservation action. Although mussels are found in many aquatic habitats, such as rivers, ponds and streams, they are hidden beneath our feet as names like pink heelsplitter, white heelsplitter, and creek heelsplitter suggest. Many, however, have been given more amusing names: rainbow, deertoe, rayed bean, hickorynut, threehorn warty back, snuffbox, mapleleaf, pimpleback, and elephantear. A tremendous pocket field guide, ‘Photo Field Guide to the Freshwater Mussels of Ontario’, was published in 2005 by the St. Thomas Field Naturalist Club. In the same way beavers can be thought of as ecological engineers, mussels are known as “living filters.” In their natural unpolluted state, beds of aquatic habitats can be carpeted by mussels. Mussels fed on algae, bacteria, and detritus that they filter from the water with their gills. In turn they are food for mink, otter, raccoons, and muskrats as well as some fish and birds. As filter-feeders, mussels are sensitive to pollution and habitat alteration which makes them good indicators of environmental quality. Out of sight, but not out of mind – ouch! Prepare to look for mussels on your next aquatic outing by learning to recognize our common species. Mark your calendar “MVFN mussel show, no perfume” for April 18, when Jackie Madill will present ‘Freshwater Mussels of the Ottawa Valley.” This event takes place at 7:30 p.m. at Almonte United Church, 106 Elgin St. in Almonte. All are welcome ($5 fee for non-members). For further information, please contact MVFN’s program chair Cathy Keddy at 613-257-3089. Submitted by the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists.

Be careful on area waterways EMC News – Warmer temperatures and the potential for some significant precipitation are being forecast for this week. Should this occur, flows may increase quickly in some of the larger rivers such as the Clyde, Indian and Fall Rivers within the Mississippi Valley watershed. Flows within the Carp River watershed have been declining quickly but will increase again should the forecasted rainfall occur. 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. Ice conditions on area waterways will continue to deteriorate rapidly with the warmer weather and area residents are advised that no one should be venturing out onto ice covered waterways. Daily water levels and flows are available on the MVC website at www.mvc.on.ca.

EMC Events – Dinner won’t be the only thing on the menu, but murder as well during a fundraiser to benefit the Alzheimer Society of Lanark County and Perth Civitan Club Saturday, April 20. The two organizations are hosting a Murder Mystery Dinner Show & Dance at the Perth Civitan, featuring Eddie May Mysteries of Ottawa, which bills itself as Canada’s longest running producer of murder mystery entertainment, having been offering dinner theatre for more than 25 years. This evening’s theme surrounds ‘Murder at Tromp Enterprise,’ (a spinoff of ‘The Apprentice’ reality show) and audience members will be encouraged to help solve who did in one of ‘The Donald’s’ entourage. “It’s a very interactive show and the cast comes out into the middle of the room and interacts with the audience,” said Bobbi-Jo Jarvis, in charge of fund development at the Alzheimer Society. “Everyone will have the chance to take notes and figure out who did it.” Doors open at 6 p.m. where guests can sip cocktails and peruse the many silent auction items up for grabs. The show gets underway at 7 p.m., followed by dinner, catered by the Perth Civitan, at 7:30 p.m. According to Jarvis, this is the second year the organization has offered the murder mystery event but have partnered with the Perth Civitan to make it bigger and better. “We’re hoping to turn it into a major fundraiser for us,” she noted, adding that Andress’ Independent Grocer of Smiths Falls is also a major sponsor for the evening. Once the audience has solved the mystery, the entertainment doesn’t stop there. Jarvis said guests can dance the night away until midnight with DJ Kevin Carnrite. Proceeds from the fundraiser will be split between the two organizations. “Our (Alzheimer Society’s) portion will go to our programs and services, to help with our daily programs, education, workshops for speakers and support groups,” she explained. The Lanark County branch of the Alzheimer Society (one of five in the South East Local Health Integration Network) exists to provide education, support and advocacy to those and their

families dealing with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. Its values are centered around collaboration, accountability, respect and excellence, all while also fundraising to help seek a cure. “Our mission is to alleviate the personal and social consequences of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias and to promote research,” states the organization’s website (www.alzheimersocietyoflanark.ca). Tickets are $40 each or those interested can purchase a table of eight for $300. Jarvis urges people to grab theirs quickly as there are only a limited number available. Reserve them in advance by calling the Alzheimer Society of Lanark County at 613-264-0307 or Tickets Please at 613-485-6434. They can also be purchased at Ground Waves (17 Wilson St. East in Perth) or by visiting the Perth Civitan’s website (www. perthcivitan.org). “It’s an affordable night out, you will be supporting two great causes in the community and the money stays local,” Jarvis concluded.

Prizes will be awarded to the participant who raises the most money, has the best costume (for centipede teams), shows the best spirit and is the youngest and most senior in age. Registration begins at 9 a.m., with a 10 a.m. start for the one-kilometre event and a 10:15 a.m. start for the fivekilometre event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the past four years, we have contributed over $10,000 to Champions for Kids. It is truly rewarding to know that the money raised goes right back into the hands of families who see the benefits immediately,â&#x20AC;? Crawford said. The minimum pledge is $20 for families or individual runners, and $100 for centipede teams. Submitted by the Upper Canada District School Board.

 

some unique way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year we are challenging schools, staff, school councils, community partners, daycare providers, and all interested parties to submit a centipede team of at least five members,â&#x20AC;? says Crawford. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Centipede teams are a lot of fun for groups of families, friends, or coworkers.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We also understand that some of us would rather finish the event individually, and not tied to a team,â&#x20AC;? laughs Crawford. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That option is still very popular too! Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to have the choice.â&#x20AC;? Crawford said sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also thrilled that the event has once again partnered with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Leeds and Grenville which will be hosting Ribfest next door at the North Grenville Municipal Centre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Both events have one common goal in mind â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to support children in our communities,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After the walk/run, participants are invited to visit

As in previous years, participants are invited to participate in the one-kilometre or five-kilometre walk/run as individual participants or centipede teams. Centipede teams are groups of five to eight people who walk or run in costume and stay tied together in

Start of MLB season sparks many good memories

Trivia ticker Speaking of trivia, my family and friends will tell you that I am something of a “trivia nut.” That’s especially true relative to sports such as baseball which I follow closely. At this time of year my personal MLB trivia ticker is going full blast. I have been fortunate enough to attend literally hundreds of Major League and Triple A baseball games over the years, mainly in Montreal, Detroit and in Ottawa when the Lynx were part of the International League from 1993-2007. Lynx were the Expos’ main farm team for most of their

all too short existence. the pleasure of seeing the top players for I inherited my interest in the game This isn’t a trivia column but I will all of the opposing teams.

An added bonus is that I have also had handed pitcher Ron Guidry. A sad note for me at the start of each MLB season occurs when I reflect on the loss of Montreal Expos. The faltering franchise moved to Washington, D.C. in 2005 after 35 seasons in Canada’s second city. Failing attendance and ownership issues sealed the team’s fate. The loss of the Expos has had a major impact on the profile of the sport in Canada. Among many good memories of the team is attending my first-ever Expos’ game at old Jarry Park in May 1969, the team’s inaugural season in the NL. Montreal beat Cincinnati Reds that day with outfielder Mack Jones belting a grand slam home run for the Expos. Jones, who became famous in the city as the “Mayor of Jonesville” (the nick* name for the left field bleachers at Jarry Park) died of cancer in 2004 at age 65, during the ball club’s final campaign. My favourite Expos’ player from the original squad was slugging right fielder Rusty Staub. He was revered by Montreal fans who nicknamed him “Le Grand Orange” because of his fiery red hair. Staub later played for Detroit which only served to make me a bigger fan! My baseball memories file is lengthy. But one that always stands out was seeing the late, great Gary Carter, one of the best power hitting catchers in Major League history, play at Jarry Park during his rookie season in 1975.

THE EMC - 23 - Thursday, April 11, 2013

R0011994257_0328

EMC Lifestyle – I was thrilled to see the start of the Major League Baseball (MLB) season last week, something that for me is a sure sign the long winter is finally behind us. For Canadian baseball fans the 2013 campaign holds real promise. For the first time in many years Toronto Blue Jays are expected to be a contender in the American League (AL) East Division. Jays captured back-to-back World Series titles in 1992 and 1993 but have not appeared in the post season since. With the full backing of team management, Jays’ young general manager Alex Anthopoulos (he wasn’t even born when Toronto played their first ever game on April 7, 1977) skillfully rebuilt the team during the off-season. In particular Anthopoulos bolstered the ball club’s sagging pitching staff. It’s a long season (162 games) but on the surface it appears Canada’s only MLB entry could be in the mix when the stretch run begins late this summer. The best news for Blue Jays’ brass is that fan interest in Canada’s largest city has skyrocketed in the wake of a significant rebuild. Tickets for the season opener against Cleveland Indians April 2 were quickly snapped up. Scalpers were getting previously unheard of prices for opening day seats. After a big build-up and an impressive pre-game ceremony, Jays promptly went out and lost 4-1 to the Indians who are now managed by former Montreal Expos’ player Terry Francona. Jays’ slow start continued against Boston Red Sox this past weekend. Not to worry! As I said, it’s a long season. What matters is what the club’s record is in September, not in April. As I have noted previously in this space I am a Detroit Tigers’ fan. That’s mainly because my wife Kathleen and I both have family in Michigan and also because Kathy and my mother Molly are natives of Chatham, Ontario which is just 50 minutes up the 401 from Windsor-Detroit. Tigers won the AL pennant and went to the World Series for the second time in six years last fall but were swept by National League (NL) champion San Francisco Giants. With pitching ace Justin Verlander signed to a massive, new seven year contract and third baseman Miguel Cabrera leading the offence, Detroit is expected to contend once again. For his part Cabrera captured the first MLB Triple Crown (combining batting average, home runs and runs batted in) in 45 years last season. Boston great Carl Yastrzemski was the previous winner way back in 1967, Canada’s Centennial Year. Cabrera, by the way, uses maple bats produced by Canadian bat manufacturer ‘Sam Bat’ which is located in Carleton Place, where we live. So there’s an interesting piece of local baseball trivia for you!

Good maple syrup weather means no flooding in area EMC News – Weather that has benefitted the maple syrup producers in the area has also benefitted people living near rivers and streams in the Rideau Valley. Snow measurements done at the beginning of March by Rideau Valley Conservation Authority (RVCA) water resource technicians showed that the snowpack presently covering the Rideau River watershed was the second highest, in terms of its water content, for the time of year (equivalent to an average water depth of 126 mm), since the conservation authority snow surveys were begun in 1974. There was enough water content in the snowpack to generate flooding conditions in flood vulnerable communities but cooler than normal weather and little precipitation since then has caused a gradual melt and relatively minor flow increase that reached a peak of 251 cubic metres per second (cms) on the Rideau River at Ottawa on Monday evening, April 1. Access begins to become a problem in parts of the watershed when flows at the Ottawa monitoring station pass 325 cms.

Water levels are presently fluctuating and ice covers on local streams and rivers are unstable posing potential safety risks. Caution should be exercised by everyone when near local streams and rivers. Parents should inform their children of the risks associated with increased flows and insecure ice conditions in area watercourses, and provide appropriate supervision. The RVCA flood forecasting and warning status will remain at “flood awareness” until flows return to normal for the time of year. Monitoring of weather forecasts and river conditions will continue in the daily planning cycle of the flood forecasting and warning program. Based on those daily observations and our estimates of how the river will respond to approaching weather, further watershed conditions statements, flood watch or flood warning messages will be issued as warranted. Watershed residents wishing to receive RVCA flood messages directly through email can contact Michelle Paton at michelle.paton@rvca.ca, check our messages on Twitter (RideauValleyCA) or visit www.rvca.ca.

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; March was another busy month for the Lanark Wild Food Club (LWFC). On March 16 we gathered, again at Cliffland, hosted by Howard Clifford. During the meet and greet, Peter Fischl discussed various winter edibles with the group highlighting the various types and difficulties in identifying and harvesting at this time of year. We then embarked along the trail to Blueberry Mountain. Upon our return Howard Clifford favoured us with his dramatization of John Muir; a captivating experience. The Conboy hobby sugar bush was the location for our March 23 event. The Conboy family has had the sugar bush operation for decades. We enjoyed and very much appreciated their hospitality. Keith (The Rev) shared some tales of his early days in the sugar shack, listening to hockey on the radio and after each goal they would high tail it into the house to catch the instant replay on TV. His passion and enthusiasm were contagious. It was an extremely memorable visit.

Civitan relay team goes back to ‘Olden Daze’ with May 11 fundraiser EMC Events – Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute will be the new location for the annual Relay for Life this summer. The overnight fundraiser is scheduled for June 7 and 8 commencing Friday evening at 7 p.m. This year’s theme is “Groovin for a Cure.” Fundraising groups have already started organizing events to battle this dreaded disease. Civitan chair Colleen Porter and her committee is planning a dance for Saturday, May 11 to raise funds. “We have all been touched by cancer unfortunately and I find this a very worthwhile cause to get behind,” Porter said. “Civitan is all about this type of project.” The Civitan will be hosting a dance at their hall in Smiths Falls May 11, from 8 p.m. to midnight. Porter mentioned that the theme for the dance also will be “the ’60s”. “We are hoping people will come dressed in ’60s attire. There will be prizes for the best ’60s attire and also other draws throughout the night,” she said. Music will be supplied by the newlyformed group Olden Daze, consisting of former ESP members, Gary Edwards and Claire Porter along with local musicians Paul Milotte, Bruce McDonell and Stan Hastie. Milotte and Porter are Civitan members and are part of the committee putting the event together. Ticket prices will be $10 each and are available at Vickie’s on Main St., and Country Diner on Union St., or by calling 613-283-4037 or any Civitan member. This is a licensed event and food will be available. One of the features of the evening will be a set in which Olden Daze will perform only music played at the original Woodstock concert held Submitted photo at White Lake, N.Y. in August of 1969. Things are looking up for this year’s Relay for Life thanks to a fundAlso on the slate will be appearances raising dance featuring the band ‘Olden Daze’ Saturday, May 11 at the of Edwards’ grandson Austin Moore on drums and his buddy Fraser Bedford. Smiths Falls Civitan Club hall. The group is comprised of (left to right) Olden Daze members

Olden Daze started out as a group of guys jamming in late 2012. Milotte had guested with the original ESP at their Civitan Hallowe’en Dance and after that he joined McDonell, Edwards and Porter in Edwards’ garage for their Friday afternoon jam sessions. When the idea of the Relay Dance came up, the guys offered their services and thus Olden Daze was born. Drummer Edwards got his start as a drummer in the O.Y.B. Lampliters Drum Corps before graduating from the drum line to the set providing the beat for the Continentals in the mid sixties as the house band at the Rideau Ferry Inn. Later Edwards joined with Roger Plant and Porter using several names and musicians until, with Hastie, they formed the Wax Museum which was an Ottawa-based group working out of the old Oak Door on Bank St., playing gigs throughout Ottawa, the Valley and the Quebec side. After the demise of the Wax Museum, the nucleus formed the Family Album for a short period. Later joining up with Dennis Staples, Hastie and Porter they formed Luke Warm Soul as the house band at the Rideau Ferry Inn. In 1969 the ESP was formed (Edwards, Staples and Porter). Edwards played drums for the ESP for ten years before leaving. He filled in several times and performed a few reunions of the original ESP. Bass player and vocalist Porter crossed paths regularly with Edwards though his music life started out with another common link, Plant. Plant and Porter played in several groups (the Cheetahs, Scribes, Our Suite Disorder and others). “We changed our name every other month, hoping one would work,” stated Porter. Porter, Plant, Hastie and Edwards moved on to Ottawa to form the Wax Museum, playing Ottawa and the Valley and touring through Quebec which Bruce McDonell, Gary Edwards, Claire Porter, and Paul Milotte. Missing all agree was a very memorable event in their lives. After the Family Album, from the photo is Stan Hastie.

Porter returned home to play bass for the Paper Dream after the release of their record ‘My Minds Eye/She’s No Good’. It is here that Porter started a long musical relationship with Staples, later joining Edwards and Hastie to form Luke Warm Soul, a short stop before the three formed the ESP. Staples and Porter would perform over 40 years as the ESP with Rick Frizell and Peter Bigras playing drums after Edwards’ retirement. The trio later became a quintet with Dave White, Ray Doherty and Peter Woods. They still get together to perform for worthwhile causes and the odd reunion. During their days, the ESP opened for such acts as Del Shannon, Gary Lewis, the Byrds, Downchild, and the Five Man Band. One of the newcomers to the scene is Milotte who has played for several acts in the area. He was the lead singer and guitar player with Whiskey Jar in the late ’60s and early ’70s. In the late seventies and early eighties Milotte performed in numerous pickup groups as a vocalist and guitarist. Late in the ’80s, early ’90s he was a member of Who Cares as a guitarist/vocalist. Ask him about the name. In the 2009-2010 period Milotte performed guitar and vocals in a work-related group. Milotte and Porter became friends and later bandmates as members of the Smiths Falls Civitan Club. Guitarist and vocalist McDonell was a friend of drummer Edwards, playing bass with him at the Free Methodist Church. He started jamming with Edwards and Porter which got things started. With the addition of Milotte, Olden Daze was born. McDonell is the most versatile of the group playing guitar, bass guitar and drums. He handles most of the lead guitar work, also playing some bass. McDonell started off in the ’80s in a group with his two brothers called Cedar Creek. In the period from ’85 to See DANCE page 42

LAWS working on solution to stray cat population concern in county By LORI CLARKSON

EMC Lifestyle – In response to the concern surrounding the stray cat population in Lanark County, LAWS has been working diligently at coming up with a sustainable solution to this concern. The decision to pick up stray cats and dogs remains within the municipalities, and while some opt to pick up both, others have opted to focus on dogs only. As a not-forprofit/charitable organization, our primary responsibility is to provide a service to our communities and to the animals of Lanark County. We are currently in the process of revising our surrender fee structure, so as to ensure that it is not prohibitive and will be introducing this revised structure in the coming weeks. We have recognized that this is merely one element and are going to be piloting an initiative on April 15 where we will be waiving surrender/intake fees on that day for the cats in the various communities of Lanark County. We are currently working to secure sponsorship to cover the expenses associated

Always set tires to correct PSI for better mileage and safety EMC Lifestyle - â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hi Brian, Can you please talk about tire pressure? I know there is a number on the door of the car to indicate the pressure for your tires, and also when I looked in the book that came with the car it talked about the possibility that if you drove regularly at higher speeds i.e. 100 kph, you could put more air in. Can you please comment about this, what is advisable and what is the safety range when it comes to tire pressures. Also what is the best sort of gauge?â&#x20AC;? Thanks Ken Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy to oblige Ken, especially since itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for the seasonal switch from winter tires to all-seasons (read summers) and because I heard these questions more than once in the past week or so. First, when it comes to the proper tire pressure for your vehicle, always refer to the ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manual or label usually found on the driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s door frame. Never go by the tire pressure rating printed on the sidewall of the tire itself. Vehicle engineers take tire pressure into consideration with regards to steering and suspension design and passenger and cargo load limits just to name a few features. Therefore the tire pressure they specify is unique to individual vehicle models. Tire companies on the other hand may see a specific product of theirs used on many different types of vehicles, each with different pressure requirements. Always check and set the tire pressure when the tires are cold (not driven at speed for any length of time)

Car Counselor BRIAN TURNER

and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t adjust them up or down for speed or weight loads. Tire speed and load ranges cannot be increased with a change in air pressure. The best tire pressure gauge isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the most expensive. Plain, old-fashioned pencil-style gauges are the most reliable and easiest to use and seldom cost more than $10 for light automotive purposes. Keep in mind they have a shelf life and canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be expected to be as accurate as they were when they were new after bouncing around in your glove box or tool chest for four or five years. There is no safety range when it comes to tire pressures. Set them to the correct PSI rating (pounds per square inch) and check them regularly (once a month isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t overdoing it). Keeping tires at the right pressure is the easiest and most cost effective way to improve fuel economy, not to mention keeping you and your passengers safe. The recent holiday weekend enforcement blitz by local police services brought a few shocks to some unsuspecting drivers who had child-seats in their vehicles. More than one driver was charged for having a child in a seat that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t meet Canadian standards and most of these non-compliant seats were purchased in the U.S. Transport and Health Canada urges

For more information about child seats and child passenger safety, visit Transport Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Child Safety Web page at http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/ roadsafety/safedrivers-childsafety-index-53.htm, or call Transport Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Road Safety Information Centre at 1-800-333-0371 (toll-free in Canada). Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve written several columns on the topic of replacement keys and their sometimes shocking costs due to the anti-theft and remote control functions built into them for most late model vehicles. Many of these keys cost upwards of $100 or more each not to mention the service charges to have their vehicles programmed to recognize new

replacement keys. One of the biggest problems that consumers face occurs when they purchase a used vehicle. A good portion of used vehicles on dealership lots come from daily rental car companies. When these vehicles are purchased used by a retailer at a wholesale auction, they seldom come with any more than one key. This is because when the rental car companies buy these vehicles new, one key is kept in a regional or national office and one key accompanies the

vehicle to its rental outlet destination. Then when the vehicle has completed its rental life and heads off to the auction, the second key never seems to accompany it. As a result these vehicles are retailed to consumers with only one key and rental car head offices dispose of hundreds of these keys every year because they no longer own the vehicles they belong to. First consumers must be aware of the price of replacement keys when negotiating a used vehicle deal. My advice would be to make sure a second key is included with the car and listed on the contract as a condition to the sale. When losing the only anti-theft key to a vehicle means towing it to the closest dealer, getting a second key is a smart idea. If enough car shoppers start demanding the correct amount of keys, then maybe, rental car companies, wholesale auction houses, and retailers will get together and figure out how to get keys together. If you have any questions, opinions, or stories on anything automotive please drop me a line, [By email to emc@perfprint.ca or directly to bjoeturner@hotmail.com listing â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Question for the Car Counselorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on the subject line or by post to Record News Communications, 5 Lorne St., P.O. Box 158, Smiths Falls, Ont. K7A 4T1]. When using regular mail, please supply a phone number if you seek direct contact (due to volume I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always promise replies).

Dream began in Prince Edward Island for 1985 Olds Cutlass 442 classic car scene. “Some of my favourite memories include cruising down to California’s on Wednesday night in Mississauga and watching my 2-year-old dance to the cruising music from the announcer’s booth. I have already done two 1,800-km trips with the car and hope to join the hot rod power tour in two years with my two girls.”

I’m always looking for more stories. Email billtsherk@sympatico. ca or write Bill Sherk, 25 John St., P.O. Box 255, Leamington, ON N8H 3W2. Everyone whose story is published in this column will receive a free autographed copy of my latest book: “OLD CAR DETECTIVE FAVOURITE STORIES, 1925 to 1965.”

and bought for $4,000. “Ten years and $18,000 later, the car has been restored from the ground up. The quick paint job done a year before I bought it was to hide its true colours. Almost every piece of sheet metal has been replaced. The car spent six months in the body shop before coming out with its flawless original black on silver paint scheme. The exterior looks completely stock. The interior is modified slightly to incorporate a full autometer gauge cluster for reliability. The worn-out Olds 307 V8 was replaced with a mild 350 Chevy backed with a TH350 3-speed transmission. The power is put to the pavement through the original 8.5 inch rear axle with 4:11 gears, Olds rally wheels, and BF Goodrich tires.” Joey now drives his dream car to local cruise nights and the ice cream shop with his two young daughters, who have taken quite a liking to the Joey Arsenault’s 1985 Olds Cutlass 442 dream car, one of only 3,500 built that year.

Thinly sliced meat is key to stir-frying oriental-type dishes. If your meat is partially frozen, it is easier to slice into thin strips.

EMC Lifestyle – Joey Arsenault was a high school student living in Cap Egmont, PEI, when he fell in love with a car: “On my way to Summerside one day, I drove past a small car dealership. Parked front centre was a black and silver 1985 Olds Cutlass 442 (named for its 4-speed gearbox, 4-barrel carb, and dual exhausts). I pulled into the parking lot, looked underneath and through the driver’s window at the grey bucket seats, console shifter, and top glass panels. Wow! Then I looked at the information sheet on the window and saw the price: $12,000. That was back in 1995 when I was in Grade 10. Price way out of reach so I left, shattered.” Two years later, Joey purchased a nice one-owner 1983 Olds Cutlass Salon 2-door. Not quite his dream car, but nice. He drove it for about three years, then sold it when his work relocated him to Mississauga, Ontario. “In 2002, I helped a friend at work with his ’69 Dodge Dart. Then he tossed me the keys and we went for a cruise. I had the bug again! That night, I started scanning car ads and, to my surprise, saw a listing for a 1985 Cutlass 442, black and silver, grey bucket seats, and t top roof. I test drove it

Homer’s Odyssey to be presented by 2 women Legion urges for broader review productions in Perth and Burnstown this month of New Veterans Charter

EMC Lifestyle – The next meeting of the Smiths Falls Horticultural Society (SFHS) will be on April 16 at 7:15 p.m. at the Smiths Falls Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 95. We meet on the third Tuesday each month except July, August, December and January. The July meeting sometimes consists of getting together on a trip or a members only garden tour. The draw for the new members and members bringing new members will be held soon. This is for a book by Ed Lawrence donated by Anneke Phillips. Our guest this month is Kathy Besharah a member of Kemptville Horticultural Society. Kathy will speak on her experiences with desert landscaping, an appropriate topic if we have another hot, dry summer. The winners for our photo contest in March were: Anneke Phillips, first; Jane Turpin, second; and Aline Hicks and Marcia Phillips tied for third. Thank you for bringing in your great photos of “First Signs of Spring” they gave us hope that we are turning that corner. Please get your photos ready for this month; the topic is “Bulbs in Bloom”. In

with much fanfare and celebrated as a living document. While changes were introduced in 2011 to improve financial benefits, there still remain issues of dignity, fairness and equity. “The most important outstanding issue is ensuring fairness and equity in the availability of benefits, services and programs for our veterans and their families who have been injured while in service to their country, no matter where and when they have served,” says Moore. As well, the legion is very concerned with the unfair and inequitable treatment of injured reservists. Today more than ever, our reservists are serving alongside their regular force counterparts in operations or during training. They are being injured and cannot be treated differently because of the class of their service or the length of their contract. There is only one veteran and they should all be treated with dignity, fairness and equity. The parliamentary review is to be undertaken by October 2013 and this deadline is fast approaching.

Desert landscaping dry topic for April 16 SFHS meeting By CHARLES McLENAGHAN

EMC News – The Veterans Ombudsman’s report, ‘Improving the New Veterans Charter: The Parliamentary Review’, calls on the government to broaden the examination of the New Veterans Charter. The Royal Canadian Legion applauds the report from Guy Parent and his team. “The Ombudsman’s office has brought forward issues that are pertinent to all of Canada’s veterans,” says Gordon Moore, Dominion president of The Royal Canadian Legion. “These same issues have been at the forefront of legion advocacy as mandated by the delegates at the legion’s Dominion convention in 2008, 2010 and 2012,” adds Moore. “The Ombudsman offers us a timely discussion of the New Veterans Charter emphasizing priority areas for examination especially in the area of financial benefits after age 65, the complexity of the vocational rehabilitation programs and support to our families” says Moore. The New Veterans Charter when introduced in 2006 was heralded

May the theme is “Trees in Blossom”. Our executive meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month. At these meetings we discuss many items, one of which is the trips planned for this year. Tentative decisions are made and we usually decide to place sign-up sheets at each of our monthly meetings to determine members’ interest in our choices. Please remember to ask for details and/ or sign up for these entertaining and very affordable trips. The first trip is scheduled for July 20 when we plan to visit Whitehouse Perennials (www. whitehouseperennials.com) followed by Rockwall Gardens (www.rockwallgardens.com). We are trying to find members willing to open their gardens for a “members only” tour in late June. Please speak to Jeanne or Ellen if you wish to volunteer sharing your gardening efforts with your fellow members. Even if you are not currently a member, a membership will be granted to anyone opening up his or her gardens for us. Please check your yearbook for the three classes in our April Fun Flower Show. This is not a judged event but rather another people’s choice award where members will chose and vote for

their favourite entry. Consider making “a design in a shoe” Class 3 for some fun. Plans are ongoing for the May 21 Plant Sale. Aline is looking after this so contact her if you wish to assist with setting up or selling that day, have donations of plants or something special for Jeanne’s famous live auction. If you need help bringing anything in please let us know. This is our major fundraiser for the year and takes a lot of work but we once again will need plenty of members to help out for this one-half day. Our Garden of the Month is planned to commence in May but we are always at Mother Nature’s mercy so will be notifying the public regarding the last day for nominations of gardens you feel should be considered. For May we would like any nominations in by April 15. Please call Pauline at 613-267-4046 to submit your nominations or send them to the SFHS web site at the end of this article.

EMC Entertainment – One of the world’s greatest and most enduring story, not read but told, as Homer intended. Presented by 2 women productions, Homer’s ‘The Odyssey’ will be presented at the Neat Coffee Shop in Burnstown on Saturday, April 20 at 7:30 p.m. and then at the Full Circle Theatre in Perth on Friday, April 26, again at 7:30 p.m. Everything’s there – all the power of high endeavour. The roaring seas on the journey to the island; the memories of the terrible war; the Cyclops looming in the cave entrance; the men turned into pigs by the enchantress Circe; the battle of homecoming; the tender reunion with a loyal wife. For almost 20 years, four Ottawa storytellers – Jan Andrews, Gail Anglin, Jennifer Cayley and Ellis Lynn Duschenes – have been telling parts of Homer’s ‘Odyssey’. They have come back to the epic repeatedly, knowing that it will always be one of the greatest stories ever told. Now, they bring their love of the masterpiece here to our community – the last show in the 2012-2013 season of fine storytelling for adults presented by 2 women productions (2wp.ca). For them, the performance is always an adventure. “What I love about ‘The Odyssey’ is the sense of everlasting humanness,” Andrews says. “For me, it’s the excitement,” adds Cayley. “All that intrigue,” Anglin puts in. “The fierceness and the gentleness of the man,” says Duschenes. Set down in the Eighth Century BCE before even kings had literacy, ‘The Odyssey’ was always meant to be transmitted through the human voice. The four tellers work in awareness of this. They know just how to take the text and bring it to life. Over and over they have been told how the story takes on new vibrancy and meaning through the teller’s art. They cannot perform ‘The Odyssey’ in full. That would take 14 hours. They do, however, weave their parts in such a way that listeners will come to the end of the evening knowing they have been touched by the whole. This is a fitting conclusion to another great 2 women productions season. A chance to travel back into the earliest beginnings of literature; to live for a while in a world of heroes and heroines, gods and goddesses; to experience a little of what it was like to sit in the company of others in the great halls and feasting places of those who formed our history long, long, long ago. For detailed information, visit www.2wp.ca or contact Jennifer Cayley at 613-256-0353 or jcayley@magma.ca. Tickets in advance for the Perth show are available at Tickets Please (39 Foster St. in Perth), by calling 613-485-6343 or visit www.ticketsplease.ca. For the Burnstown event, they are available at the Neat Coffee Shop (http://neatfood.myshopify. com/collections/shows) or through Tickets Please. Submitted by 2 women productions.

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Even as a little girl sticking needles in dolls, Leesa Kirchner knew she was destined for a life in medicine. But her experiences with doctors and the traditional medical system also left her wanting. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until she was a young woman in Montreal, while preparing for medical school, that she had an encounter with what would become her true calling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was always something not sitting right when I would see a doctor and get a prescription,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would always leave frustrated.â&#x20AC;? Then a friend who was also an undergraduate in the sciences told her about naturopathic medicine. Kirchner agreed to see a acupuncture specialist about a chronic condition she was dealing with, and the results were startling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Two weeks later I was fine,â&#x20AC;? Kirchner said from the office she moved into in February. She is one of about eight Canadian with a fellowship designation from the American Board of Naturopathic Oncology (FABNO). It means she has demonstrated competence in both naturopathic and conventional medical oncology, and has met the highest standard of the profession. That also means she champions an â&#x20AC;&#x153;integrativeâ&#x20AC;? approach with patients. Kirchner will study a patientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s medical history, learn the medications and other pertinent aspects, then develop a strategy to compliment the conventional treatments (including chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormonal therapy, and surgery.) â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not what I say versus what (their oncologist) says. I try to work with them. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll send a letter to their doctor explaining what we are doing, and 99 per cent of the time they are OK with it,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not about interferring with chemotherapy, but complimenting it. Otherwise, whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the point?â&#x20AC;? There are certain plants and nutrients that are proven to offset the painful effects of conventional treatment, such as hand-and-foot syndrome - whereby skin easily falls off - susceptibility to infections due to a decrease in white blood

cells, and others. Along with simple dietary changes and a manageable exercise routine, Kirchner has seen success with cancer and pre-cancerous patients. However, it is the IV vitamin C therapy that is generating the most interest. It is a first for the area. Some in the field of naturopathic medicine distrust and are even antagonistic toward conventional treatments â&#x20AC;&#x201C; especially drugs provided by Big Pharma. But Kirchner is all about results. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not an anti-pharmaceuticals,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to see them broaden their horizons and do research where it is needed.â&#x20AC;? A major reason naturopathic remedies are not always endorsed by mainstream medical leaders is because studies related to these approaches end with â&#x20AC;&#x153;shows promiseâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;more research needed.â&#x20AC;? Only Big Pharma has pockets deep enough to do that research. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why Kirchner and others would like to see some profits from pharmaceutical companies directed toward what they do best - research. Lives nearby Kirchner has about a decade of experience in her profession, starting out in private practice before becoming chief medical officer of an integrative cancer centre in Ottawa. She then realized she fits best in a private practice setting, and since she was living in nearby Constance Lake, she finally took up Carp Ridge founder Katherine Willowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was pleased to join the Carp Ridge Ecowellness Centre since I am aware that it is an integral part of the community.â&#x20AC;? Kirchner finds working with Willow, whose approach has inspired strong admirers and some detractors, has resulted in a solid balance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe our practice styles compliment each other really well and we can both benefit and learn from each other.â&#x20AC;? On Saturday, April 13, from 1 to 3 p.m., Kirchner hosts a discussion on naturopathic cancer care and the IV suite. To find out more, see www.crnhc. com or visit 2386 Thomas Dolan Pkwy, Carp.

My Take MARK HASKINS

EMC Sports - I don’t like modern horror films. Most of the time I’m just sitting there bored waiting for the obvious people to die in horrible ways. I also don’t enjoy watching the kind of graphically detailed dismemberment and mutilation that’s so prevalent these days. I will however admit that the original Evil Dead series is a guilty pleasure. I loved those films, and I was curious to see the remake. So I found myself sitting in the theatre waiting for the obvious people to die, and cringing through the graphically detailed dismemberments and mutilations.

David (Shiloh Fernandez), has brought his girlfriend Natalie (Elizabeth Blackmore) to the old family cabin to meet his friends Eric (Lou Taylor Pucci), and Oliva (Jessica Lucas), and his sister Mia (Jane Levy). They’ve all come to help Mia, who’s a drug addict, go cold turkey and work through the period of withdrawal. What better place than a cabin in the middle of nowhere. All goes pretty much as expected until they find a strange book, bound in human flesh in the basement. Eric reads a passage from the book and awakens something dark, something

evil. The demon spirit possesses Mia, and she swears she will feast on all their souls before the night is over. David and the rest find themselves locked in a bloody battle for survival with his own sister. As re-makes go Evil Dead is pretty good. They had lots of nods to the original scattered throughout the film. The story more or less mirrors the original, but with Alvarez putting his own stamp on it with some interesting twists and turns. The director works hard to capture the original’s feel and atmosphere, but at the same time he’s obviously attempting to make his Evil Dead a serious work of horror. He uses some exceptional camera work to make that happen. Shots are framed beautifully to make sure you only see what Alvarez wants you to see, when he wants you to see it. Lou Taylor Pucci, Jessica Lucas and Elizabeth Black-

more are very good at making the fear seem real. Shiloh Fernandez does a fair job as the film’s ‘hero’. Of course stealing the show, as she should, is Jane Levy. She’s good as recovering addict Mia, and even better as possessed-by-a-demon Mia. It’s a good horror movie cast that screams with believable terror and dies horribly. That all said I still don’t like the modern horror film. Evil Dead is predictable, and filled with too much graphically detailed gore for my taste. I also have to admit I missed the camp. The thing that made the original Evil Dead great was its campiness and its sense of humour which the new one had very little of. In the end this modern Evil Dead wasn’t my thing. I suppose I’m still hoping for an Army of Darkness reboot. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

Hospital strikes surplus budget By STACEY ROY sroy@perfprint.ca

EMC News – The cutbacks at the Perth & Smiths Falls District Hospital have not been easy, but Linda Bisonette, president/CAO made the pain of this medicine a little easier to swallow when she announced the board’s approval of a projected $960,000 surplus operational budget for 2013-2014. Smiths Falls councillor Shawn Pankow applauded this news, adding Ontario Minister Deb Matthews assured him at this year’s ROMA conference that once the hospital budget was in the black funding would be available to assist in other ways. “It’s great to see a budget approved with a surplus,” Pankow remarked. The proposed budget has been submitted to the South East Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) for its approval and will cover the period from April 1,

2013 to March 31, 2014. “We will do everything in our power to make sure we meet those targets,” Bisonette stated during an interview with The Record News EMC. Should the surplus be realized it will be the first in a number of years the hospital has seen in its operational budget. All excess funds from surpluses realized will be used to settle the hospital’s accumulated debt that now sits at $7 million. This sum occurred as a result of maintaining the status quo in an era where supplies, materials and salaries were rising higher than the one and two per cent increases in funding provided by the ministry. “We have to ensure that we stay on this path,” Bisonette said of the surplus plan. If the hospital board is able to strike three consecutive surplus budgets of one per cent or more, then they can apply for additional

ministry support up to $1.7 million a year to pay down its debt. Cutbacks The road to surplus was paved with a number of difficult changes to the hospital. Bisonette said they were able to address their staffing reduction targets through early retirement and voluntary exit programs, while admitting the organization has lost a lot of corporate knowledge with this move. Beyond that the hospital was able to accommodate all 14 projected layoffs through reassignment except for one who chose to resign. “It’s not easy to make these changes but it had to be done,” Bisonette said. Changes such as a four-hour per-day reduction in nursing care hours in the emergency room (from 60 to 56 hours) with these hours taking place during the daytime. See HOSPITAL page P2

Communities unite for those killed in work accidents By STACEY ROY sroy@perfprint.ca

EMC Events – Everyone deserves to come home after a long day’s work. Some never get there. It is for these souls that residents in the Smiths Falls and Perth area will gather at their respective monuments Monday, April 29 to honour the lives of those lost as a result of workplace accidents, and renew their vow that it will never happen again. “It’s a day to honour the people who got killed or injured while doing their job,” said Danny Whitmore, local organizer. All are welcome to attend the noon hour service on Monday April 29 in Perth near the Crystal Palace. Then the 7 p.m. service takes

This year’s service will include the traditional address from a member of the Canadian Labour Congress and the mayor. In Smiths Falls family members of Robert David Rodford will be attending for the first time to see their family member’s memorial plaque unveiled. “It’s been a long time coming,” said Rodford’s son, Gary. Gary was just a young boy on May 12, 1949 when news reached his home in Smiths Falls that his father had been killed while working on a bridge in Vaudreuil, Que., for the Canadian Pacific Railway.

state that the local rail man was killed when a second section of a passenger train struck him. He left behind a wife and four children who would struggle to make ends meet in his absence. The financial loss was not as difficult as the void left from losing their father. Even though he worked away from home many days Gary remembers, “It was always a great thing when he was home for the weekend.” He decided to have his father’s name added to the national day of mourning plaque in Smiths Falls to honour his dad’s memory and the sacrifice their family made to the rail. Rodford and his wife will be in attendance at the April 29 service alongside a handful of family members. “I think it’s nice for a family

to honour their parent in some way,” Whitmore said. The Canadian Labour Congress doesn’t search out names to place on local plaques across the country, but does invite individuals wishing to have their loved one remembered in this way to contact them. Those wanting a family member to be added to the Perth or Smiths Falls memorial can call Whitmore at 613-283-4834 to learn more. The National Day of Mourning has taken place every April 28 across Canada since 1984. This date was selected to mark the 70th anniversary of the first Ontario Workers’ Compensation Act being approved. The Day of Mourning was enshrined in national legislation by an Act of Parliament on Feb. 1, 1991.

Hospital president talks about budgetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surplus From page P1

Bisonette emphasized there will always be at least two nursing staff in the ER at all times. She added the hospital executive continues to monitor this change to see if it has any impact on emergency room wait times. Another change in the emergency department is the centralization of emergency operations after 6 p.m. and on weekends to the Smiths Falls site. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Certainly if an individual presents in Perth they will be transported by ambulance to the Smiths Falls site,â&#x20AC;? Bisonette assured councillors at this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting. She explained the most common cause for an emergency surgery within the hospital is due to C-sections so it made sense to keep ER operations in Smiths Falls where obstetrics is housed. Other changes took place in maintenance where crews are now working on a staggered shift schedule to ensure clean-up is available 24/7 within the hospital while reducing overtime. In an effort to reduce costs the hospital has looked at available technology and community services to allow them to release patients after day surgery and bring the number of patients wait-

ing for long-term care services (ALC) from about 30 to nine in just under a year. For this, Bisonette credits the local doctors who have stepped up and worked hand-in-hand with the board to see the six per cent reduction in each department is realized. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The doctors have really done their part in turning this around for us,â&#x20AC;? she said. The use of technology has made it possible for the health care facility to close six beds at each site. Bisonette said the decision to close the beds was made after a thorough review and in recognition that the hospital continued to operate with the same bed count as it did prior to amalgamation in 1994. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hospitals are not measured by the number of beds they have anymore,â&#x20AC;? Bisonette added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will easily manage with these 85 beds.â&#x20AC;? She noted in the 1980s the hospital had 132 beds, which increased to 200 before the merge in 1994. After the merger this number then dropped to 97 where it stayed until just this past year. Changing the culture of hospital care is something communities like Smiths Falls and Perth and the entire province are having thrust upon them due to the accepted realities of health care

costs and its projection to increase substantially in the future with the aging of baby boomers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There needs to be some adjustment; there needs to be a new way of thinking about health care,â&#x20AC;? said Lynda Hendriks, chair of the hospital board. Coun. Jay Brennan called the estimates that up to 80 per cent of the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget could be gobbled up by health care costs by 2030 â&#x20AC;&#x153;startling.â&#x20AC;? Currently, health care is costing the province at least 40 per cent of its budget annually. Hendriks explained the province is looking to implement a new funding model called Hospital-Based Allocation Model (HBAM), which rewards hospitals that can keep their services in line with the provincial allocation. This new system takes into account, both population and provider-based factors as well as a person profile. The person profile is an electronic health record of various types of health services provided within a specific period of time. Bisonette added the province is also about to roll out a program called Health Links that will provide primary care givers (family doctors and nurse practitioners) with the tools needed to give additional supports to

Upgrades slated for GWM site of the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital hospital’s existing building renewal program and helps healthcare facilities address renewal needs on a priority basis. “HIRF grants are essential in maintaining the physical structures of our hospital sites. The management team and staff are always generating ideas for ways to improve the physical plant,” said Linda Bisonette, President & CEO.

These infusions of cash for building upgrades and repairs are investments in patient care. Brian Allen, Vice President, Finance & Support Services stated, “As the Smiths Falls Site has recently undergone a major redevelopment, the grant monies will be mainly focussed on projects at the GWM Site.” He also confirmed that a total of 16 proj-

ects have been put on the hospital’s “to do” list. He outlined a few of the projects slated to be completed at the GWM Site in the coming fiscal year such as renovate patient bathrooms; new flooring in patient care areas; upgrades to air handling units. “This is not only an investment in our hospital, but in our healthcare community. We are grateful to the South East LHIN for

recognizing our needs,” stated Linda Bisonette. Hospitals can use their HIRF grant to develop approved minor capital projects that extend the useful life, or result in an improvement in the quality or functionality of hospital facilities, but that will not result in an increase in operating funding from the ministry.

SPRING STREET SWEEPING In January 2013 the Town of Perth Economic Development Department and the Small Business The Environmental Services Department has begun performing street sweeping on municipal streets. Municipal parking lots and sidewalks will be swept later in the season. Generally, street sweeping takes place during the evening due to lower traffic volumes. Town streets are swept several times over the spring season to collect the build-up of debris from winter activities. As an on-going maintenance activity, streets and parking lots are swept on Thursday nights each week during the summer and fall. Private parking lots can be swept on a cost-recovery basis by calling Tom Sproule, Superintendent of Surface Operations at 613-267-1737 for an estimate. THE EMC - P3 - Thursday, April 11, 2013

Norwood’s Spotlight Music competition stops at top four finish EMC News - On Facebook, on road signs and on CBC Radio – this is where the community saw and heard Henry Norwood in his quest to be Canada’s next young country music star. The community rallied around the local youth as he fought to the bitter end. The 14 year-old Norwood entered CBC’s Searchlight Competition several weeks ago, with his original composition entitled, “Another Bottle, Another Day,” and was immediately selected to the first round of 32 contestants. Three weeks later, Norwood was one of four semi-finalists from across Canada. Although he didn’t win the competition, he was quick to thank his supporters on Facebook early Monday morning. “Thanks to everyone that voted and supported me throughout the contest,” he commented. “It’s been a good run! Now

for the party at the Legion on Saturday. Hope to see you all there!” Harry Adrain and Norwood will be performing in a jamboree at the Perth Legion Saturday, April 13. Born and raised just outside of Perth, Norwood comes from a long line of musicians, which is where he gained his

inspiration and love of country music. He has been performing locally since age 11. His song speaks of lost love and heartache, a topic probably not well-known to the crooning teenager. But Henry’s voice and grace in the spotlight show a definite maturity.

Participants will learn more about creative business marketing, as dynamic speaker Jennifer DeBruin provides insight into innovative ways to get your business brand noticed.

Highlights of her talk include creating a solid brand identity, relationship building and free marketing techniques that draw customers. “We’re anticipating an exciting hour of learning how to creatively market our businesses,” said LHBTA secretary and owner of Flowerpress Printing, Rita Davidson. “Our speaker, Jennifer, is a life-long resident of eastern Ontario so she understands the unique challenges and opportunities that exist in our region.” The cost is $12 per person, payable at the door, which includes breakfast as well as the talk. The event is sponsored by the LHBTA, as a bonus for its membership. New members are always welcome. Sample fresh maple syrup, made on site at Providence Point, while enjoying breakfast!

Town’s app ready for BlackBerry10, more regular business updates By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

Photo by DESMOND DEVOY

Text 2 Systems’ Matt Ferguson listens intently to the discussion in the Smiths Falls council chambers on April 2. from the Town of Smiths Falls,” and a free app to download on to your phone. The app could change the way in which the town communicates with the public, letting them know about road closures, calls for assistance, and even floods. “It is designed to promote the business of your town and drive tourists to the town,” said Ferguson. He joked that even though Smiths Falls sits in the heart of the Rideau Canal, with thousands

of boaters floating by every summer, “you can’t put a sign in the water,” urging them to drop anchor and visit. “You can’t sell a secret,” he added. Other nearby municipalities, like Perth, are looking at extending free Wi-Fi in tourist areas like Last Duel Park to let them know about the area. “This is a $2,000 investment for the town,” said Ferguson. “It is designed to be quite cost effec-

tive.” There are other uses for the app too, beyond business and tourism. “Your schools can even embrace it and have a presence within the system,” said Ferguson, adding that the even the local branch of the Civitan Club could tap into it. One of the first challenges that Ferguson put his system through was the recent World Broomball Championships, which were held at various venues in Arnprior, Beckwith Township, Carleton Place and Mississippi Mills. “People used it as an information service, these people from all over the world,” said Ferguson. “This is something we need to utilize and own...Your town is well positioned to take advantage of this.” Both Ferguson and the town are looking for quality as well as quantity. “It (the app) will tell you, on the screen, how many people are listening,” said Ferguson. “You don’t want it to be a noise device or spam...you can say, ‘Oh, I want to listen to Carleton Place and Smiths Falls, but I don’t want to listen to Mississippi Mills.’”

The app can also count the number of times that, say, an ad banner is tapped. “The accuracy of the information is a tricky one,” said Ferguson. “We are willing to work with some people in the community to refine this.” Coun. Dawn Quinn said she was glad to see a Lanark Countybased company working with the town. “I own a local business and we are being totally inundated with people offering us all sorts of deals and packages,” said Quinn. “They are all from Toronto or the United States, and none of them are mobile.” “We work to hire locally,” said the Carleton Place-born Ferguson. He added that, of the people who use iPhones, 60 per cent are looking for local content so, if they are looking for Smiths Falls businesses, they are not looking for Kemptville or Perth businesses. According to his numbers, about 50 per cent of the population has an iPhone or similar device. “It is astounding the volume of interest,” he said.

EMC Business - The Town of Smiths Falls’ app will soon be workable on the new BlackBerry 10. During a presentation at Smiths Falls town council on Tuesday, April 2, Matt Ferguson of Text2 Systems revealed that while the town’s free app is available for iPhone and android devices, their technology will soon be adapted to accommodate Research in Motion’s (RIM) latest entry onto the market. “We are in the process of looking at the BlackBerry Z10,” said Ferguson. Just as RIM has gone through its own troubles lately, he admitted that “we went through some growing pains,” with the technology. He admitted that the town app’s business directory is static, though he is moving to make it more current. “There are some businesses in town that are new and are not in there, and some that are in there that have since gone out of business,” said Ferguson. “We’re discovering this in Westport and elsewhere.” He was scheduled to meet

with the Smiths Falls Downtown Business Association on Tuesday, April 9 about the issue. Coun. Shawn Pankow thanked Ferguson for his presentation, but noted that town staff needs “time to make sure that the information is accurate,” that is put out by the service. “People get turned off and don’t go back,” to the app if the information, for example, leads them to the drive to a business that is closed. Ferguson pointed out that a quarterly audit service is available which will determine if businesses are still in operation. “We are striving to put all the aspects of a small community into the palm of your hand... both to residents and visitors,” said Ferguson, covering every aspect of town life like services, arts, culture, commerce, recreation, and places of worship. “It is not just information mining... you have proactive reach,” explained Ferguson. “It’s giving you the ability to reach out.” The partnership between Ferguson’s company and the town started in mid-2012, and starts with someone simply texting SF to 84748. “You’ll get a nice message

Children shouldn’t need to save us

EMC Editorial – Spring is in the air but what is that in the ditch? Do we live in a garbage dump? Why do some people feel it’s just OK to roll down the car window and toss out empty bags of fast food, coffee cups or beer bottles, cigarette butts or pull over and unload bags of trash from the back of a pick-up truck? Not only is it disgusting, but it’s… well, disgusting. Take it to the landfill site. Keep it in your vehicle until you get home and dump it in your own trash can, recycling box or ashtray – better yet, quit smoking, and definitely, stop drinking and driving. Think of the impression you’re leaving for those who visit our beautiful county. In the summer, lush green grass covers the dumping ground that is stark naked at this time of year bared for the world to see what kind of hoodlums we really are. Even if we are not all garbage tossers, we are painted with the same pathetic brush. Bless those volunteers who offer to pick up garbage at this time of year during Pitch In Week, April 21 to 27 – many of them are children. Think about that for a minute. Kids… picking up our messes. Ongoing since 1967, Pitch-In Canada started in Victoria, B.C., when a group of concerned neighbours wanted to clean up their community along the waterfront. Now there are more than a half-million volunteers who help keep Canada clean. According to Pitch-In Canada’s website, from the beginning, the organization now leads a multifaceted approach to “litter” and overall proper waste management practices. These practices include: the 4 R’s, REFUSE - REUSE - REDUCE - RECYCLE, personal responsibility, community sustainability and beautification.Through education, community participation, and partnerships with the corporate and government sectors, Pitch-In Canada works with all Canadians interested, to maintain a clean, green and beautiful country. Often we see youth in our communities offering to pick up trash along the roadways and shorelines.

They are the champions of recycling – they are learning it in school, and have been diligent at it. Just look at some of our students who are winning awards for their hard work at school. It’s not just about the 3Rs anymore – reading, writing and arithmetic, although that’s equally important. Locally, in Smiths Falls, the Rideau Environmental Action League is leading the charge for Pitch-In Week. Volunteers are asked to join others who wish to help rid the garbage that has been so thoughtlessly tossed in our communities. Bags will be supplied – just bring your boots and your gloves. Last year, thousands of pounds of garbage were collected, sorted and taken to landfill sites or the recycling depot. Public and highly visible sites, such as parks and road allowances, are identified by REAL and groups or individuals assigned to clean that site. Garbage bags, other supplies and safety instructions are provided. REAL records the number of participants and the number of bags of recyclable and other garbage collected for comparison from year to year. Although REAL is working with the Town of Smiths Falls and others to find other measures that will reduce our litter problem, the real problem remains with those who think it’s all right to be a litterbug. Fines may be the answer. Near Renfrew, anyone caught littering may be subjected to a $1,000 ticket. Perhaps publication of the names of those guilty parties would be warranted. On the other side of the world, fines for flicking a cigarette butt can reach as high as $10,000 if found guilty in Australia. Maybe it’s time to get a little more serious about the ramifications of littering. It’s not just about a coffee cup. It’s about that underlying threat of death or destruction when it’s a cigarette butt or a liquor bottle EMC Lifestyle - On Sunis tossed from a vehicle. day, I did what has become a The children can’t always save us – we need to habit over the last few years – save ourselves and the planet.

away at it for a while, but I wasn’t at it too long before I lost steam. I opted for a compromise. I grabbed a folding chair and plunked it on the small section I had cleared, sat back and chilled – literally. I was STEPHANIE GRAY surrounded by ice, but it was nice! Birds were singing, the breeze was blowing, the sky wasn’t terribly overcast. If I closed my eyes I could almost imagine it was a coolish summer day. In fact, closing my eyes was fairly imperative in order to adequately set the scene, otherwise my sightline was obscured by two garbage cans and a green bin currently residing nearby until their usual warm-weather locations were more accessible and free of snow and mud. Part of the reason for giving up so easily was the fact I had checked the long-range forecast earlier and saw warmer temperatures and rain on the horizon, which should aid my cause. Maybe, just maybe, I’ll be able to easily finish the glacier removal next weekend. This, however, is a risky plan, because weather forecasts are unreliable. In fact, I felt like a hypocrite for even consulting the forecast. See, around our house Groom-boy spends great amounts of time complaining about the weather forecasts. “They’re never right.” “They’re always changing.” “No one knows what they’re talking about.” “Dude,” I say. “Do what I do. Look out the window and, if it’s raining, take an umbrella. If it’s sunny, take your sunglasses. Weather changes. Get over it.” This from the woman who can’t wait for ice to recede. Anyway, whether the weather cooperates or not this week, I plan to sit on my patio again very soon. My ice pick and kettle are ready.

What is council trying to hide?

Open letter replies to local MP’s mailer until she finally liberated herself by committing suicide. The Conservative government tried and failed to keep the sound and sight of Ashley’s ordeal secret. How many more troubled, violent, self-harming individuals are being warehoused in prisons for long periods of time so that you can claim punishment is the answer for those who break the law in Canada. Further, Correctional Investigator, Howard Sapers recently stated, “Prisons fail aboriginals. Too many aboriginal people are hailed and support programs are inadequate. The number of aboriginal people behind bars has increased 43 per cent in the last five years.” You preach longer sentences and to quote you “real punishment” as the formula for keeping our streets safe and not a word about education and rehabilitation. Shame on you. The letter addressed to me, Scott, from your office opted to use puerile childish prattle to convey your Conservative agenda and then in all sincerity asked me to tell you if you represent my views. The answer to that question is no. Nancy Arkell-Lightford, Perth

a short time before had had a solid attendance. This all brings me around to the Editorial that ran in April 4 edition. Thank you for taking the public stand that you have. I believe Monsanto is a very devious company whose sole aim is to dominate the agriculture feed business globally. In this Editorial, it was mentioned that Monsanto has other products such as vegetables which they have GM’d. However, if one were to go to the Monsanto corporate web site and download the 2012 Annual 10-K document that they have registered with the U.S. Securities Exchange Commission, since they are a U.S. based public corporation, one would see that they have a much larger pipeline of vegetable that they are planning to introduce to the agricultural world. There is a reason why Europe has banned GMO products, why other countries such as India require labels of the products made from these “foods” be labeled accordingly. There is also a reason why President Obama recently introduced a Monsanto Protection Act. This Act was done in order to protect Monsanto, not people or farmers, as they see the winds changing against Monsanto. We as Canadians must stand up as well before all of our food is totally corrupted. Doug Hoover Perth, Ontario

session but the motion was shot down and council moved in camera. At the end of the closed session, the chairperson simply reported that the mayor would proceed as directed. Selecting a new CAO is a very important decision council had to make and all options should be explored. Ratepayers certainly are interested in the selection process council is considering. Apparently, us poor servants (otherwise known as taxpayers) are not worthy of knowing council’s direction. Also, it has been pointed out that the salary scale for the CAO is considerably higher than the neighbouring townships, so now is the time to fix it. The recent process for the selection of a new CAO for the County of Lanark was discussed in open session. Why is our council not being open and transparent like the county? Were it not for the concerns brought forward by Mr. Stewart, we would not even know that the CAO selection process is under way. What is the council trying to hide? Donna Rose-Creighton, Clayton

Stand up against GMO products To the Editor; I have personally been on a crusade of sorts to try to educate friends and family about the detrimental effects on humans and animals caused by eating Monsanto’s “Round-Up Ready” GMO seeds and related products. These GMO products were not properly tested by the U.S. government before allowing them to be sold there. The FDA relied on the testing done by Monsanto’s own scientists before releasing their products into the field. We are now starting to see some of the results of these products on animals and humans who have consumed them. I was particularly excited to see the story in last week’s edition of The Perth Courier EMC which spoke about Jeff Greenburg going to do a presentation on GMO foods based upon the documentary movie put out by author Jeffrey M. Smith. As fate would have it, I found out about the presentation after the fact, but the movie is available for viewing on YouTube. The video was very well put together and contained some solid information. As well, segments of Jeffrey M. Smith’s “Seeds of Deception” are also available for reading on the Internet. I was also heartened to see that our local MP, Scott Reid has also taken up the gauntlet to present a petition to the CFIA on behalf of the Farmer’s Union. It was also worth noting that a similar presentation in Almonte

To the Editor; On March 19, my husband attended the Lanark Highlands Township committee of the whole meeting and the agenda contained a very vague motion for an in camera item – a “personal matter pertaining to an identifiable individual”. If anyone feels an issue is being dealt with inappropriately in a closed session, he/she has a right to file a complaint and request an investigation but from that description, how would you possibly know? Deputy Mayor Brian Stewart advised council that, in his opinion, the motion did not satisfy the requirement in the Municipal Act to disclose the general nature of the matter to be considered and council agreed to add that the motion was “to discuss personal matters relating to the selection of a new CAO/Clerk”. So now at least we know what topic was going to be discussed. Based on his research of closed meeting investigations, Mr. Stewart’s opinion was that only a very small portion of the report council received was confidential and needed to be in closed session. Mr. Stewart made a motion to defer the item until it could be determined if most of the discussion could be held in open

Coffee House today at St. John EMC News The annual spring Coffee House will be held on Thursday, April 11. It will be hosted by Emma Houlahan and Tim Loten. The cost will be $5 at the door or $3 with two canned food donations. Soccer season is well underway at St. John, with both junior and senior girls and boys try outs having taken place in recent weeks. The teams will start their games in late April or late May. The final score of the student-teacher hockey game was tied 4-4. The students showed their talent at the beginning of the game by getting three goals to make it a quick 3-0. However, the teachers fought hard to bring the score back into

EMC News - The future of the Ladiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Auxiliary of Perth-Upon-Tay Branch 244 is in jeopardy if the Nomination Committee for the May 22 elections fails to come up with a slate of nominees for executive positions. If that worst-case scenario happens, the LA could be asked to surrender their Charter, which they have held for nearly 60 years. Long-time member and Legion Past President Eric Devlin expressed concern about the immediate future of this integral part of our Legion branch. Devlin recognizes that â&#x20AC;&#x153;as time marches on, people also march onâ&#x20AC;?. When no one steps forward to fill the positions that have been vacated by the untimely passing of active members, the likelihood of the continuance of the organization is lessened. Elected executive positions are for one year, and Devlin feels that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the time has come for all members of the LA to consider placing their names on the slate of officers for the coming election.â&#x20AC;? LA President Marilyn Devlin suggests that members should consider â&#x20AC;&#x153;stepping up to the plateâ&#x20AC;? and fill an executive position so that the organization will continue to live on and help support the community through donations, as has

Lanark Highlands council near to finalizing all terraine vehicle bylaw desmond.devoy@metroland.com

New writers vying for Big Blue column By ANIQUE BAILLON and SHAYLEE SCOTT

Editorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s note: Two new writers are vying for the title of the Big Blue scribe for Perth and District High School. Their combined effort appears this week. EMC News - Spring Fling is back again at PDCI, and starts April 15 with a pancake breakfast provided by PDCIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very own Trailblazers during first period. On Tuesday, April 16, we will be hosting Family Feud at lunch in the cafeteria. Sign up in the office until Friday, April 12. We have room for six teams of four people, so find three friends and sign up. There will be prizes awarded to the winning team, so donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss out! On Wednesday, April 17 we are hosting the annual three-on-three basketball tournament for the Champions For Kids charity. On Thursday, April 18, Dev Blue will make an appearance for the spring-tastic photo booth! Pictures are only $1 each at the time it is taken. Spring raffle basket tickets will be sold until April 18, and

ing together the various bylaws from across the county concerning the all-terrain vehicles, to formulate county-wide fines and speeds. While DNEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ATV bylaw was passed earlier this year, Montagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s was passed last year, and there are inconsistencies which may make enforcement difficult.

the winners will be announced April 19. It has come to our attention that a number of students are parking at the south library end of the school, where the staff park. Students are reminded that the only parking that is available to them is at the north end, or on the side streets near the school. Please do not park anywhere at the library end - it is for school and board staff only. PDCIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Prom Committee is hosting a clothing drive until Thursday, April 18 for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Three Wishes for Prom.â&#x20AC;? They are collecting dresses, shoes, ties, suits or anything that will help someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grade 8 graduation or Grade 12 prom wishes come true. Please bring all donations to Ms. Rotarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s room in 305.

For example, ATVs are not permitted on Tay Valley roads from 11 p.m. to 4 a.m. However, in Montague, the times are from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Similarly, one municipality, like Drummond/North Elmsley or Tay Valley, might have speed limits under the Highway Traffic Act that ATVs travelling in

an area with a 50 km/h posted speed limit should travel at 20 km/h, and that in an area with posted speed limits of 50 km/h or higher, then ATVs are limited to 50 km/h maximum. In other areas, however, like Montague, the speed limit for ATVs is set at 20 km/h maximum.

Perth Historical Society presents stories of ‘Our Historic Mills’

Perth

HISTORICAL SOCIETY Times Past some of their little-known stories, and the local personalities who owned them.The presentation will be based on early as well as present-day photographs, some of which show details of mills still standing, thanks to the Lanark County Camera Club. The evening will be capped with an Internet presentation on the new interactive digital map that Tay Valley Township has produced to display, document

and guide visitors to the township’s historical and cultural sites (http://tayvalleytwp.ca/interactive-map/). Our presenter, David Taylor, has been documenting area mills since 2005, initially for a photoshoot for the Camera Club. His interest arises from an early career in the lumber industry and a six-decade passion for history and the genealogies of several area families.He is a member of the Perth Historical Society Committee and also the Tay Valley Township’s 200th Anniversary Working Group. The Perth Historical Society is dedicated to learning about and popularizing our history. It is a forum for discussion and celebration of our rich area culture and heritage. The meetings are open to the public, on the third Wednesday of each month, at 7:30 p.m. in the main floor gallery of Matheson House, home of the Perth Museum, at 11 Gore St. E. in Perth. A “Toonie Fee” applies for each meeting. For further information, contact Ellen Dean at 613-2648362 or David Taylor at 613264-0094, or visit our website at www.perthhs.org.

EMC News - For our April 17, 2013, meeting, we present “Our Historic Mills,” an illustrated tour of the historic mills and mill sites of the area. This will touch on many sites not generally known to the public. The early 1800s opening of Lanark County triggered the construction of dozens of mills harnessing the power of local streams. A recent paper lists over 40 mill sites on the Tay, Fall, Clyde and Mississippi Rivers, producing lumber and shingles, ground grain and minerals, carded and spun wool, and later, power for the newly electrified town of Perth. Interwoven into this fabric are names such as Thom, Haggart, Code, Caldwell, Ritchie, Adams and Playfair. Although some mills operated into the mid 1900s, most had long since disappeared. However, some are still with us as reminders of the past, either with a new purpose such as Code’s Mill in Perth, or as ghostly ruins like Ritchie Mill in Tay Valley Township. The remnants of others may still be found along the edge of streams, as in Port Elmsley, gradually giving up their secrets. Our illustrated talk will present these area mills and mill sites,

Wheat-less challenge highlights dieting power of going gluten free By CAITIE McRAE

EMC News - From the Scarsdale diet in the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;70s, to cabbage soup in the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;90s, and the master cleanse of the 2000s, fad diets have stuck around for decades as a temporary fix to combat chunky thighs and jiggly bellies. But for Jill McKenna, her wheat-less competition is hardly a diet. In fact, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not that at all. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really is a lifestyle change,â&#x20AC;? McKenna said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing this permanently.â&#x20AC;? McKenna owns the Sweet and Savoury Traditions food shop in Perth, so sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s well-tuned to the evolving palates of her customers. But it was the requests she was getting at her other business, the Crossroads Tearoom in Balderson, that caught her attention. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People were constantly asking for gluten-free options,â&#x20AC;? she said. She got talking to a couple of her patrons, a man and his father, who informed her on the benefits of going gluten-free. They recommended she read a book called Wheat Belly by a renowned cardiologist advocating the elimination of wheat from oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s diet for better health. She bought it. And she read it. And she liked it. Well, really, she was blown away. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe what I was reading,â&#x20AC;? McKenna said. Never someone who was into healthy eating, McKenna always

dismissed the idea of living a wheat-less life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought it was just some passing fad,â&#x20AC;? she said. But after eliminating gluten from her daily meals three weeks ago, McKenna is feeling better than she has ever felt before. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Within four days, my sinuses were completely clear,â&#x20AC;? McKenna, a life-long sufferer of sinusitis, said. Being a smoker, she always chalked up her stuffed nose to the side effects of that habit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I used to get terrible headaches and those have disappeared. So has my back pain. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just gone,â&#x20AC;? she said, adding that not only has she lost a little weight, but feels more energetic throughout her busy work days. Her husband, Don, suffered from troublesome acid reflux. After joining the wheat-less challenge with his wife, his acid reflux has been alleviated exponentially. The McKennas believe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the genetically modified wheat used in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s foods thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the problem. They endorse the beliefs of Dr. Mark Hyman, a functional medical physician who refers to todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wheat as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;triple threatâ&#x20AC;? not only for its much larger chromosomes of gluten protein, but for containing amylopectin A, which can cause bloating in the stomach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This wheat can cause everything from lethargy to dandruff,â&#x20AC;? McKenna said, echoing the be-

Jill McKenna hard at work in the kitchen. liefs of Hyman. Although McKenna doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t suffer from celiac disease (a severe, life-long sensitivity to gluten), she says there are many sufferers out there who may have an undiagnosed gluten-intolerance. Because of that, McKenna is inviting people to go wheat-less for one week, starting April 15. Anyone interested can pop by her

Sweet and Savoury Traditions food shop to pick up a chart to document their progress. McKenna will post facts, tips, recipes and the like on her shopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Facebook page, as well as provide a variety of gluten-free meals in the store. Those who sign up the most family and friends will win a limo service and dinner for six

at her other establishment, the Crossroads Tearoom. The wheat-less challenge has no doubt piqued the interest of her storeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s customers, with 35 and counting having already signed up. McKenna is quick to point out that the fun little challenge has nothing to do with sales, and everything to do with bettering

someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be providing recipes for her own glutenfree products that she sells right in her store. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been eating this way, my mental fog is completely gone,â&#x20AC;? she said. After working long days of baking and slaving over a hot stove, the last thing on the coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mind was cooking dinner when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d get home. McKenna said theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d usually pop a frozen pizza into the oven or chow down on some other not-so-healthy choices. Convenience over nutrition was their old way of life. But those days are gone. Now the McKennas plan ahead, incorporating healthier substitutions like rice flour or tapioca, among many others, into their meals. They still eat the same things, but a heightened version of it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s apparent by the way McKenna feels about herself lately that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be no retreating back to the days of noshing down on modified wheat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even fathom eating white bread now,â&#x20AC;? McKenna said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just night and day how I feel now. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never felt this good.â&#x20AC;?

“NEW TO YOU”

Vice principal returns to The Stewart School at The Stewart School after returning as vice principal following a two-year retirement. “Mrs. (Daryl) Kelly asked me if I would return until the

end of the year, because I know the students here and they know me,” she said. Born in Montreal, St. Arnaud was formerly a French teacher – hence her continued use of the title ‘Madam’ – as well as a vice principal at Glen Tay Public School.. She started as a vice principal at The Stewart School in 2006 and retired in 2011, so when the position re-opened, she was called back as an obvious choice. While retired, St. Arnaud said that she never slowed down. She had been keeping busy in the Perth community during those two years. “I do a lot of volunteer work,” she commented,

though that may now be taking a back seat to her duties at the school. “I’m afraid I may have to drop some things now that I have a ‘real job’.” The children keep her busy as well, popping into her office. “Never a dull moment,” St. Arnaud said with a laugh. “It seems I can only sit down for five minutes.” But that’s the way she likes it. Already, the vice principal has some big ideas for the school. “There have been a few changes here, so I’m still orienting myself towards events and activities, but I’m thinking about bringing in some music and artists,” she said, referring to the Artists in the Classroom program. “In

the past, I was involved in some artisan programs and I think it’s great.” While she has enjoyed teaching and leading in eastern Ontario, she also brings a unique perspective to her role, having taught kindergarten at the old Canadian Forces Base in Lahr, West Germany in the 1980s, during the Cold War. The school at the base was big, so The Stewart School is intimate by comparison. Upcoming events at the school include a twoday curling event for students from kindergarten to Grade 8 in the gym on April 11 and 12, as well as a full week of soccer in May in which members of the Ottawa Fury will be at the school.

EMC News - Students requiring community service hours, newcomers wishing to learn more about their local area, retirees seeking new challenges and working folk looking for volunteer experiences will have an opportunity to explore the options available at the second annual Perth and District Volunteer Opportunities Fair. Hosted by the Perth and District Community Foundation, in partnership with the Perth and District Chamber of Commerce and the Town of Perth, the Fair will be held Tuesday, April 23, at the Perth Civitan Hall. From 3 to 7 p.m. over 30 not-for-profit organizations serving Lanark County will showcase their activities and discuss their volunteer needs. As well, the Perth Detachment of the OPP will be available to provide information on volunteer screening requirements and

procedures. Highlighting this year’s event is a book reading and signing by Gayle Grass, the local author of the Iris the Dragon series and President of the Iris the Dragon Charity. Written for children aged eight to 12, the Iris books have been acclaimed as a “trusted resource” in helping them understand their and others’ mental health. A Mental Health Commission of Canada study has endorsed the books, noting that the series is effective in reducing the stigma towards mental health and educating young readers about their mental health and wellness. The Volunteer Opportunities Fair is held in conjunction with National Volunteer Week. For further information, visit www.pdcf.ca or Like us on Facebook pdcf.ca

Perth’s Mike McNamee nominated for QMJHL trophy EMC Sports – Perth native and former Smiths Falls Jr. A Bear Mike McNamee walked away from his final year of major junior hockey knowing he was an award nominee. The 20 year-old centre was nominated for the Frank J. Selke Memorial Trophy as the most sportsmanlike player of the year in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) for 2012-2013. Zach O’Brien of Acadie-Bathurst Titan won the award for a second straight year, connecting on 92 points and just a single minor penalty all season. After a solid first year, playing for Patrick Roy’s Quebec Remparts, McNamee’s game continued to evolve this season after being traded to the Sherbrooke Phoenix during the off-season. As an assistant captain with the expansion club, McNamee had 22 goals and 37 assists and just 16 penalty minutes in 64 games, and helped lead the Phoenix to the playoffs in their first year of operation. The QMJHL awards were handed out at a ceremony in Montreal on Wednesday, April 3. The Phoenix were up against it in the first round, facing the top-ranked BaieComeau Drakkar. But McNamee scored once and assisted on another in the team’s opening game of the post season, a 6-2 loss on March 23. As expected, the club bowed out of the playoffs in four straight against the high-powered Drakkar.

Artist creates visual link between audience, Missa Gaia

EMC Events - The upcoming Missa Gaia Concert in celebration of Mother Earth promises to be a huge success. The concert will be at St. Paul’s United Church at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday on April 21 (the day before Earth Day). However, that success depends upon resonating with and attracting an audience. The unique score of Missa Gaia features lyrical melodies with dynamic rhythms from African, Brazilian and American Gospel traditions and incorporates traditional Mass and Biblical texts while interweaving the voices of wolf, whale and harp seals. There are 39 beautiful voices in the choir, a nine-piece orchestra, under the direction of a capable and inspiring conductor, Brad Mills, will all contribute to an outstanding performance. It is the work of Annie Dalton, graphic artist at Design Network, which provides that required link between a wonderful concert and the public. Dalton, who sings in the concert choir and has designed many outstanding posters for previous St. Paul’s concerts, has created the poster for Missa Gaia. A poster is the primary visual representation of what the concert promises to be. If a poster has high visibility it becomes recognized as the symbol of the concert. And an interesting, beautiful and unique poster promises that the concert will also be interesting, beautiful and unique. This year’s Missa Gaia poster lives up to and exceeds all the aforemen-

Comedy at its best will be seen and heard as the Middleville Players take to the stage.

Comedy set to hit Middleville stage Let’s Murder Marsha by Fred Carmichael may have murder in its title, but it’s full of fun and action, with the murder only in the head of the title character, Marsha (Gena Gibson). An overheard conversation leads her to believe that her husband Tobias (Shawn Gibson) and his friend Persis (Shayna Wark) have murderous intentions. With the police uninterested in her plight, Marsha tries to take matters into her own hands, along with helpful neighbour Virgil (Lorne Dale). A mixup with her maid Bianca (Carla Schonauer) and her mother Lynette (Kristy Gibson) makes for some anxious moments, especially when policeman Ben Quade (Pat Labelle) enters the picture. The play starts at 7:30 p.m. each night. Tickets are $12 for adults, $6 for children 12 and under, and are available by calling 613-259-5692 or emailing jgibson@storm.ca.

EMC Entertainment - Marsha is in imminent danger of being murdered... or is she? The Middleville Players have the answer to that question in their latest production, Let’s Murder Marsha. The three-act comedy will run Thursday to Saturday, April 18 to 20, at Trinity United Church in Middleville. The Middleville plays have been an annual spring fixture since 1985. Started by Toots Borrowman and a dedicated group of local amateurs, the plays have weathered a move from the township hall to the church, as well as the retirement of longtime player Brian Rodger, who started in 1985 and carried through to last year’s production. Former cast member Pat Labelle has stepped in this year, with Carla Schonauer bringing new blood in her first role for the Middleville Players. Kristy Gibson, Lorne Dale, Shawn Gibson, Shayna Wark and Gena Gibson return for this year’s play.
