Landowners learn how to co-exist with beavers at recent workshop By ASHLEY KULP

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; No one likes bad neighbours and beavers could be described as the peskiest kind. A recent workshop in Perth showed landowners how to work with the industrious rodent rather than against it. Stewardship councils from Lanark, Lennox & Addington, Frontenac, Hastings and Renfrew County came together to host the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Beavers and Usâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; workshop at the Perth Civitan Hall on April 22. The day-long event featured several guest speakers, including Cherie Westbrook, professor and researcher in the Hydrology Centre at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon. She spoke about the effects of beaver activity at the watershed scale. Rideau Valley Conservation Authority director of watershed stewardship services, Rudy Dyck also enlightened the packed house on how local conservation authorities have joined together with property owners and municipalities to develop mitigation techniques for beaver problems. Mike Richardson, public works supervisor for Central Frontenac Township also had some insight for attendees on what municipal roads departments face each spring and fall with flooding due to beaver activity. He said landowners need to take care of their properties and that it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t up to municipalities to do that for them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Landowners are one of the biggest problems municipalities have. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not looking after the damns and marshes on their properties,â&#x20AC;? he


More than 200 interested landowners, stakeholders and municipal representatives, above, packed the Perth Civitan April 22 for â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Beavers and Us,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; a day-long workshop. The event, which featured several guest said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seminars like this will help the understanding spread throughout the municipalities so they become part of the solution rather than them complaining to the municipalities, who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do anything anyway (because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s private property).â&#x20AC;? Richardson stressed that municipalities arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t responsible for beaver maintenance on private property, but that he understands higher levels of government need to provide

support for programs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Senior levels of government need to provide clear legislation to municipalities...and fewer restrictions and in a timelier manner,â&#x20AC;? Richardson expressed, adding that the process to contact landowners to gain access to their properties takes too much time. Lack of funds in public works department budgets is another issue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to have budgets established to handle changes and better ways of

speakers offering various solutions for beaver management, was hosted by the stewardship councils of Lanark, Lennox & Addington, Frontenac, Hastings and Renfrew County. dealing with beavers and marshlands,â&#x20AC;? he stated. By being proactive, Richardson said property owners can make beaver situations a lot less stressful. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Any support you and your fellow landowners can provide us saves you and whatever township youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in, a lot of time and money...we need to cooperate wherever we can to make a better relationship between us, beavers and the wetlands themselves,â&#x20AC;? he noted.

Management tools One of the big draws at the workshop was professional beaver manager Michel Leclair, who spoke of the tools and plans he has developed for successful beaver management. Leclair has been tackling beavers and collecting information on their habitat characteristics for the past 35 years in Gatineau Park. He was also featured on CBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Beaver Whisperers.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you have beavers in your backyard, they give you lots of problems,â&#x20AC;? Leclair admitted. The secret to managing beavers is controlling where they live, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you control the habitat, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to control the population.â&#x20AC;? Leclair took the audience through the different control devices he has put in place at dams in Gatineau Park, which as 167 monitoring points, 208 water control devices, 57 beaver fences and 26 diversion dams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some devices stay for 10 to 15 years but the best one I had remained 25 years without touching it,â&#x20AC;? he remarked. After being set up, the devices are inspected twice a year and maintenance is done whenever needed. Data is collected and regular reports are generated as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a bible of all the control points. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pretty large book,â&#x20AC;? Leclair added. To truly understand the way beaversâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; minds work, he said that first you have to look at the history of the area and what happened when beavers were trapped for their pelts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That changed See BEAVERS page 5

Mississippi Lakes Association annual general meeting June 1 EMC Events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; In 2011, the Mississippi Lakes Association executive voted in favour of engaging in a lake plan for Mississippi Lake. The purpose of this lake plan is to work together to protect what we love about our lake now and for the future. Mississippi Lake has undergone a lot of development in the last few years. Now we expect even more back lot development to occur. Every lake has a capacity for use it can endure. Any new development and use puts a strain on the health of our lake by bringing in more boaters, fishermen, putting more pressure on our water quality, the health of

our wildlife, etc. What impact do you think these things will have on the water quality of the lake or on your property value? How you enjoy the lake? Think these things are worth getting involved in to protect? Wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it be nice to have a game plan in place before all this new development happens or before our fish numbers begin to dwindle that will help us protect our precious resource? This is what a lake plan can do. In it we can let the municipalities know what development, land uses, and land controls are in keeping with our vision of the lake and its surroundings. How itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important

to lake residents that any new development, land uses etc. wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any detrimental impact on the health and wellbeing of our lake. We can let the government agencies, municipalities, stakeholders and each other know what we value most about our lake so that we can protect those aspects of it for our and future generations. We can let each other know what about the lake is important to us and that maybe we need to change how we do and look at things to make our lake better. Things like clean water to swim in, nice fish to catch, a safe lake where kids can play and boat, the call of the loon on

a hot July night. And most importantly we can state how we all work together to protect our lake. Its our lake, no government is coming to protect it for us, we have to do it. Do you think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something worth investing time and money in? Do you think you would like to help out the Mississippi Lakes Association do that? We on your association want all these things for our lake. Your association members have been working hard with the Mississippi Valley Conservation and the Centre for Sustainable Watersheds and have secured a $70,000 grant over the next two years, through the Trillium

Foundation, to help us complete this plan. But the plan can only be completed if the residents and other stakeholders of the lake get involved. We need your help. Complete the survey at and plan to attend our annual general meeting Saturday, June 1 at 9:30 a.m. at the Carleton Place Curling Club. Refreshments and door prizes will be available. To join the Mississippi Lakes Association, visit the above website. For more information about them, please contact John Miller at info@ Your Mississippi Lake needs you.

BEAVERS From page 4

the habitat a lot,â&#x20AC;? he pointed out, stating that a beaverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s habitat cycles between 10 to 50 years. He went through a number of different devices (some using metal spikes and caging) he has put in place at beaver dams. Beavers work on sound and stimulus so wherever the water is running, they are going to try and block. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you make culverts and the water is running through it, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a stimulus and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exactly where the beaver will make a dam,â&#x20AC;? Leclair said. Beaver fences are a popular tool, which can take the stimulus out of the culvert and the fence prevents the animal from getting to the running water, therefore they will create a dam along the fence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It works well but you do have to clean it out periodically. Debris gets stuck in it and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not an easy task,â&#x20AC;? Leclair stated. By using these devices and techniques, Leclair said it is possible to co-exist with beavers. When the floor was opened up for questions, he was asked if trapping is still a humane option for beaver maintenance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It depends on what you consider humane. They (traps) can catch a lot of animals that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to catch but the more humane and faster thing to do is a 22-calibre bullet in the head,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But the main thing you want to try and do is eliminate all the

Leclair continued. Other guest speakers during the workshop included retired ecologist and landowner Don Cuddy, who spoke about his involvement with beavers; as well as fellow Hastings property owner Cliff MacLean and how the use of a beaver baffler

has helped on his land. Remote sensing technologist Jean Thie provided insight for the audience on how to locate beavers using remote imagery; and naturalist and photographer Michael Runtz gave an overview on the natural history of the beaver and how they adapt the landscape to suit their needs.

Camp Quality benefits from big car show weekend in Lombardy By LAURIE WEIR

EMC News – Since Camp Quality opened in Lanark County in 2000, members of a local car club have been donating to a cause that benefits children with cancer. “I remember the initial phone call,” said Glenn Mooney, director at Camp Quality. “It was Terry Irish who called me and we’ve been partners with them ever since. They’ve been wonderful with their ongoing support.” Camp Quality is currently taking registration for children ages five to 18 who would like to experience a fun week of summer camp in August. “Typically, (children) are referred to us through word of mouth or through CHEO,” Mooney says. “We don’t turn anyone away.” Last year, there were 33 children who took part in the camp that runs the first week in August. Mooney and his wife Pam started the eastern Ontario Camp Quality. They don’t own the campsite at Providence Point near Lanark, but only rent it for the week to provide this service, typically to children who have ended their cancer treatments. “We were asked… we couldn’t say no,” he said. They don’t have children of their own, but 18 nieces and nephews…and a Newfoundland dog named Bear. “Camp Quality is a good time for kids to come and have some fun and it also gives

their parents some respite,” Mooney said. “If a child is a first-time camper, we usually invite their siblings to attend as well.” Mooney says that there are a number of volunteers who accommodate a single camper. There are two for each child, plus support staff of doctors and nurses on site. Some of the friendships forged between the child and his or her camp counsellors (who are all adults usually in their 20s or 30s) have lasted for years. “We have some matches who have been together for three and four years,” he said. “Kind of like Big Brothers and Big Sisters.” Car show It’s been for almost a halfcentury that the Antique and Classic Car Club of Canada (ACCCC), Rideau Lakes Region, has been shining up its rigs for the spring car show in Lombardy. This year’s event is slated for May 25 and 26. “We’ve been having this car show since about 1965,” said Andy Holdham of Manotick, president of the ACCCC, who has a 1936 Chevy classic of his own. “And every year since Camp Quality has been in existence, we have donated (money) to help children who are undergoing cancer treatments.” Members of the club live in Smiths Falls, Carleton Place, Almonte, Perth, Kemptville, Manotick, Winchester, Metcalfe, Russell, Greely,

Kanata, Barrhaven and Orleans, but Holdham said most of the members are from the Smiths Falls area. “We’re from all over… and we attract a great deal of people,” he added, including from Ontario, Quebec and northern United States. This two-day event will feature flea market type vendors of crafts and automotive specialists in and surrounding the agricultural building, complete with ’50s and ’60s music and an evening beef barbecue for anyone who would like to grab bite to eat. There will also be a car corral for those who wish to sell their old classics. A $10 fee will apply for those wishing to take advantage of this opportunity. Sunday is the main event, with a car show slated from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. – with free registration from 8 a.m. to noon – complete with 15 different categories of judging. From modified vehicles, to original classics, pro stock and restored antiques, there will be judging by fellow owners with awards presentations at the end of the afternoon, approximately 3 p.m. “These old cars are neat to look at, but even neater to watch and hear one drive by,” Holdham said, as the car show will feature a drive-by of sorts as the old buggies are cranked over for a parade around the racetrack. “We normally parade about 18-20 vehicles and I’m hoping to get up into the 1950 models,” he said. “It’s neat to hear the chugging of the old

1916 Model T owned by a member, Terry Irish, or a 1923 Buick with a different sound all together and we’ll extend that (parade) up to the ’50s and ’60s models.” Holdham said this event is about the camaraderie, networking and having fun with other like-minded car folks, as well as raising funds to keep the club running throughout the year. A Camp Quality donation is just one way they help in the community. “It’s about seeing cars and talking to people with the same interest, and maybe seeing restoration of a car

like one you’re working on… it’s about getting advice and finding parts, or just about having fun and enjoying the old cars,” he said. One of the highlights for the ACCCC is having fun with the kids at Camp Quality. “We always go camp and take the kids for rides in the old cars,” said Holdham. “Their faces just light up when they take a ride in some of those cars,” added Mooney. “They hop on into the rumble seat and away they go. “The Antique and Classic Car Club have been a great support to us for the past 13 years, both financially and

with their involvement at camp,” Mooney said. “We truly appreciate all of their efforts and support of our program. They are great people!” Camp Quality will be on site during Sunday’s car show for anyone interested in more information – or visit www. or call 1-800294-7841. For information on the car show, call 613-692-2438. Vendor spots are still available as are entries for the car show.

Making the perfect cottage pass Manage Your Money

In sports, a perfect pass is a thing of beauty. Your cottage is also a thing of beauty – a place for fun times with the people you love. But at some point, you will want to pass your cottage on to others, probably your adult children. To help you avoid potential obstacles like excessive taxation and maybe even some surprising opposition, here’s how to make the perfect cottage pass and ensure it will stay in the family for a long time to come. Don’t get blindsided Wayne Gretzky famously said that he skates to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been. When you’re thinking about who to pass your cottage to, do you rely on what has been or do you consider what is going to happen? For instance, your adult children have always enjoyed the cottage – but will they in the future when you’re no longer around? Talk to your children now and if there are those who do not want ownership responsibilities, you can help avoid future family squabbles by ensuring they are treated fairly in your will.

Make the easy pass Plan now to avoid excessive tax liabilities when you make the pass. Unless you’re passing assets to a spouse or common-law partner, when you die you’re deemed to have disposed of your capital assets at fair market value – meaning that if your cottage property has appreciated, your heirs could face a significant capital gains penalty. A less-taxing pass: Transfer the property to your kids while you are alive, either as an outright gift or by selling it to them at fair market value. (Selling for less can result in double taxation.) Spread out the capital gains triggered by the sale by making the payments over a five year period and claiming the capital gains reserve, so that only 20% of the capital gain is taxable in any one year. Alternatively, transfer the property as a trust, with your kids as beneficiaries. This transfer option will also trigger an immediate capital gain but future capital gains on the property will accrue

to you children and are not payable until they sell the property. Insure your pass Cover cottage capital gains – and other estate debts – with permanent life insurance. The death benefits are usually tax-free and can provide an essential source of cash to pay any taxes so your family won’t be forced to sell assets, such as your cottage. The perfect cottage pass should be an essential part of your overall financial and estate game plan. Your professional financial and legal advisors can help ensure your plan is perfect for you.

CROW recognizes support for Raising the Bar initiative DEAR EDITOR: On May 1, we held a Raising the Bar celebration which recognized early learning and child care programs for succeeding in a voluntary accreditation program at Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute (SFDCI). I would like to thank the custodial staff for their warm welcome and assistance to make sure our evening was successful. I would like to express my gratitude to Chef Burns for his leadership with the hospitality program which provided the refreshments and food for the evening. The students in this program were polite, professional, and attentive.

I received many compliments from our guests on the food and the exemplary service the students provided at this event. I would like to acknowledge and thank Jade Gregg for providing her expertise on the sound system for the evening. Jade provided assistance at all times and stayed until our event was over to make sure we had no technical difficulties. She went beyond the call of duty which I am very grateful for. I would highly recommend SFDCI for your next event. Sincerely, Diane Bennett Raising the Bar Coordinator, Lanark

COMMENTARY Be fire safe at the cottage EMC Editorial – Opening the family cottage for the season is a treasured ritual for many over the Victoria Day long weekend. Save for a freak evening of frost (which happened earlier this week), this is traditionally the time when the mild weather is finally here to stay and families make the trek to their summer spaces to give them a good spring cleaning. While you’re washing the linens, scrubbing the floors and checking for messes left by pesky critters, the Ontario Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council is reminding cottagers not to forget about the dangers of fire and carbon monoxide. The council recently launched its seventh annual cottage safety campaign and is urging the public to ensure their piece of heaven remains just that by checking and maintaining smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. Though some may not be aware, the Ontario law that applies to permanent homes is also required of cottages. Working smoke alarms must be installed on each storey of your summer home and outside all sleeping areas. While purchasing supplies to open up the cottage this weekend, be sure to add extra batteries (or smoke alarms) to the list. Those alarms that have been lying dormant all winter must have batteries replaced as the cold weather drains them of their power. Be sure and check the age of your alarms as well. The council recommends any smoke alarms over 10-years-old and those carbon monoxide devices over seven-years-old be replaced to ensure everything is in good working order. Don’t take the summer off from fire safety. Just as in permanent homes, it is important to have a fire escape plan in place. Working alarms are simply an early warning sign and families require a special plan to ensure everyone gets out of a burning building safely.

Emerson has big ideas for Grampa’s visit to Northcote EMC Lifestyle – We were soon to find out why Emerson was so anxious for a visit from Grampa, who lived in Ottawa and came out to Northcote often. He drove a car with a rumble seat in it, and he never failed to pile us five kids in the back, and tear down the Northcote Side Road like someone possessed. Only three could sit on the seat at one time, so two of us had to crouch on the floor. That was usually Earl and me. But Grampa always stopped at Briscoe’s General Store to buy us penny candy, and that’s when he made us change places, so that we each got a turn on the seat. I thought it was a car like no other. The running boards had real rubber on them, and there was a little patch of rubber over the back fender where you stepped to gain entry to the rumble seat. And along the roof, inside the car, there were two hooks, and on these hooks Grampa carried a long black umbrella. It was the biggest umbrella I had ever seen. He said he used it if rained while he was lawn

bowling in Westboro. When Grampa visited, and after we had had our ride down the Northcote Side Road, he spent the rest of his time with Mother, his only daughter, who he thought didn’t belong on a farm in the back woods of Renfrew County! It was on one of those visits that Emerson was more anxious than usual to get our ride over with, and see Grampa settled in the kitchen with Mother. He made sure the teacups were on the kitchen table, the kettle was boiling on the Findlay Oval, and he knew Grampa would be in the kitchen for a spell. I saw him go over to the car, and open the door on the driver’s side, and gently take the big black umbrella down off the hooks. I had no idea what he had in mind, because it certainly wasn’t raining, and it was as hot as blazes with not a cloud in the sky. It didn’t take Emerson long to drag me into the mystery, by telling me I was going to have the experience of a lifetime. One I would never forget. Little did I know how truthful those words would turn out Vice President & Regional Publisher Mike Mount 613-283-3182, ext. 104

to be! If I had had an ounce of brains I would have headed for the hay loft. But Emerson made this venture sound so exciting, I was soon waiting to see what he had in mind. We went behind the house where the summer kitchen was attached to the wood shed. Father kept a stepladder there to patch the roof when the leaks got so bad Mother threatened to head back to New York if he didn’t fix them. The shed roof was flat as a plate, and Emerson said it was from that very roof I was going to have the experience of a lifetime.

ing me up the ladder. He was right behind me, making it impossible for me to change my mind. He opened the umbrella, which I thought was as big as a tent, and ushered me to the very back of the shed roof. He took a piece of paper out of his overall’s pocket. He unfolded it, and scanned it as if it held some important information. All I could see was a bunch of lines, and what looked like clouds. Emerson squinted, and spit on his thumb and held it in the air. I had no idea what he was doing. “Perfect,” he said. “Now you hold this umbrella as high as you can over your head. And run...and I mean run..and when you hit the end of the roof, you’ll go sailing off just like an aeroplane. The umbrella will carry you. I’d love to do it first, but I think I’m a bit too heavy. According to my drawings, you are the perfect weight to go soaring through the air. And don’t worry about’ll lit in the grass beside the pump.” I looked at my brother, and looked at the roof, and looked up into the ADVERTISING SALES: ADVERTISING SALES CO-ORDINATOR Andrea Harding SALES: Cheryl Johnston, Sharon Sinfield, Kathy Perreault, Liz Gray, Kevin Hoover, Jamie Rae-Gomes Email: Fax: 613-283-9988 THE DEADLINE FOR DISPLAY ADVERTISING IS MONDAY 4:30 PM

open umbrella, and before I could voice my objections, Emerson gave me a shove, and I was off and running. I hit the edge of the roof in two seconds, and the umbrella and I were airborne. Well, it didn’t take long for the umbrella to collapse like a piece of newspaper, and I landed on the hard ground, miles away from the green grass around the pump, with the umbrella covering me like a tarpaulin. I was sure I had broken every bone in my body! Father was just coming out of the barn to witness my flight, and he was over to the shed in a shake. Emerson was nowhere to be seen. My knees were covered with dirt, I skinned my hand on landing, and Father determined there were no broken bones. He picked up the broken umbrella and walked around the shed to the kitchen. I was right behind him. Without any explanation, he handed Grampa the umbrella, and all he said was “Sometimes I think that lad doesn’t have the brains God gave a goose.” • 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.

EMC Entertainment – Appropriately, it took Jeremy Dutton three read-throughs before he decided the Pulitzer Prize-winning play ‘Proof’ would be his third production for Perth’s Studio Theatre. Not for Dutton the light comedies or thrillers that many community theatres embrace. Rather he likes to take on a play that challenges not only himself and his actors, but his audiences. Since he began with Studio Theatre in 2011, he has directed ‘Rabbit Hole’, a play that dealt with the sensitive issue of a family coping with the violent death of a child, and ‘Doubt’, a controversial drama centering around the even more sensitive issue of a priest possibly molesting a child in a convent school. Now he tackles ‘Proof’ by David Auburn, another story about family issues, this one dealing with a problem that is becoming increasingly common: the relationship of an aging parent who is no longer competent to look after himself and a child who must give up her life to care for that parent. And it questions the thin line between genius and insanity. It is an intriguing play that draws us in by posing questions without answers and occasionally startling us with revelations. Although it is a play about family problems, because it contains mature subject matter and some coarse language audience discretion is advised. “One of the biggest challenges,” says Dutton, “is finding the different levels, because there are a whole bunch of different levels that are within the script, but at first reading you don’t pick them up. But I always think if the actors realize what’s going on, it deepens the presentation. So every line they say gets a little more oomph to it.” The play also appealed to Dutton because of its small cast. In a community theatre, large numbers of characters are often difficult to cast and schedule rehearsal times around. ‘Proof’ features just four characters, but the roles are large

Youth optimism up in Canada, according to Big Brothers Big Sisters survey EMC News – Most Canadian teenagers believe their glass is half full according to a new national survey commissioned by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada (BBBSC) and MasterCard Canada. In fact, a majority of Canadian teenagers (57 per cent) believe their quality of life as adults will surpass their parents. Only 11 per cent expect their future quality of life to be worse than their parents, while 32 per cent anticipate their quality of life as adults to be “about the same” as their parents. The Ipsos Reid study also shows that a strong majority of Canada’s teenagers are community minded. Eight in ten teens (80 per cent) say they are committed to giving back to the community. Additionally, 91 per cent of those surveyed believe young people have much to offer to influence positive change. However, though they feel they have a lot of positive contributions to make to their communities, many teens felt their ideas go unheard. According to the survey, nearly half of teenagers (44 per cent) believe they are prevented from making a difference simply because no one listens to them. BBBSC in partnership with MasterCard is attempting to change that.

ership at the Big Brothers Big Sisters/ MasterCard Youth Summit recently in Ottawa. The 100 teens that attended this unique summit received youth leadership training from young Canadian entrepreneurs to inspire them to become agents of positive social change. The teens were selected from the ranks of Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring programs based upon their strong track records of community service. Two of those teens were from Lanark County. “Canada’s teenagers are our country’s next generation of leaders and they are full of innovative ideas that inspire positive social change every day,” said Betty DeVita, president, MasterCard Canada. “Their voice is strong and the Ottawa Youth Summit is a great platform for an exchange and dialogue on how to build a better future for all Canadians. MasterCard Canada is happy to be a part of that conversation.” Summit delegates represented every region of Canada and each will have the opportunity to express their views on influencing positive change to Members of Parliament.

that teens with a parent or adult mentor who sets a strong example of community service are more likely to become socially engaged than those without role models. “Parents across Canada should take great pride in these findings,” says Bruce MacDonald, president and chief executive officers of BBBSC. “Eightyfour per cent of those surveyed report that they have positive role models who have proven to them that individuals can make a difference through their actions. This speaks to the quality of parenting in Canada and the power of mentoring to inspire young people to become socially engaged.” This optimism, however, is tempered by the fact that two in three teenagers (66 per cent) feel highly pressured and stressed about life after high school. Other interesting findings include: • Half (51 per cent) of the teenagers surveyed are optimistic about Canada’s future, while 35 per cent are unsure. Nineteen per cent are pessimistic about the country’s future. • Forty-one per cent are optimistic about their ability to influence Canada’s future, while 39 per cent are neutral and 19 per cent are pessimistic. • More than eight in ten (84 per cent) are confident in their ability to meet whatever challenges the future brings.

• Eighty-two per cent have faith in their ability to influence positive change. • Nine in ten (91 per cent) think that social engagement is important to improving our quality of life. • Ninety-two per cent believe that influencing positive change in communities should be a priority for all Canadians, including teenagers. • Ninety-three per cent think that individuals have the power to shape the future if they choose to get involved. • Almost eight in ten (78 per cent) believe they are personally responsible for creating a better future. When it comes to responsibility for positive social change, the majority of teenagers believe that social media has an important role to play. “Fifty-six per cent of the teenagers think that social media organizations are responsible, along with governments, corporations and educators, for building a better future,” notes MacDonald. “Today’s teenagers appear set to put their generation’s unique stamp on influencing change.” The Big Brothers Big Sisters and MasterCard Youth Optimism Survey was conducted by Ipsos Reid between March 5 and March 11. For this survey, a sample of 502 Canadian teenagers, aged 16 to 19, from Ipsos’ Canadian online panel was interviewed online. The precision of Ipsos online

polls is measured using a credibility interval. In this case, the survey is accurate to within ± 5 percentage points had all Canadian teenagers, aged 16 to 19, been polled. In Lanark County, more than 340 children took part in mentoring programs in 2012. The local agency works to ensure that every child who needs a mentor has a mentor.

A tiny piece of equipment in constant evolution Designed to elevate the ball on the tee-off, the tee has evolved considerably over the years. This simple little wooden peg has made a lot of progress and still remains an important accessory for golfers. The time is long gone when players used a pile of sand to elevate the ball! The arrival of the wooden tee not only allowed golfers to improve their drives but also to avoid damaging the grass on the tee-offs. Tees have become much more sophisticated over the years. These days they are made mainly from variously coloured wood or plastic. Some golfers prefer the traditional wooden tees for their effectiveness, while others will opt for those made in plastic because of their greater durability. Large manufacturers of golf equipment are constantly searching for improvements and a wide

variety of tees are now available on the market. One option is the wooden tee in two colours and varying lengths, while the range of plastic tees is more elaborate. Apart from conventional tees it is also possible to obtain “zero friction” tees, where the ball is placed on three small supports. There are also oversized “brush” tees that reduce the rotation of the ball and tees of adjustable heights. Biodegradable tees made of bamboo are also available in specialized stores. It’s hard to believe that one of the smallest and most useful accessories continues to help golfers improve their game!



There are many types of tee on the market.

Many lessons learned by CDSBEO mission trip participants chase a truck for their fleet. Participants were extremely touched by the experience of sharing life with the people in El Cercado. As St. Matthew Catholic Secondary School (CSS) teacher Kylie Amell noted, “what we were building and contributing didn’t seem like much to us, but to them, it was everything.” In reflecting on the lessons learned, Holy Trinity student Alex Plant identified, “the only way to understand poverty in its truest form is to experience it first-hand.” Ben Lawrence from St. Joseph’s CSS revealed, “I have learned to approach each day with optimism, appreciation, and hope.” The group spent the final evening of their trip at a siesta in their honour, where they had an opportunity to dance, laugh, and say goodbye to their new friends. In addition, the students presented homeowners with a key to the new homes they had a hand in building during their stay.

address about being a Catholic graduate. This was followed by student witness talks for each of the Catholic Graduate Expectations. Students then watched the DVD “I Believe” produced by the Institute for Catholic Education before breaking into discussion groups of approximately 40 to 50 students per CGE. Anecdotal data and feedback was recorded around four key areas of the Catholic graduate expectations: best practices, challenges, resources needed, and career possibilities steeped in the Catholic graduate expectations. The data reflected significant insight by students into the four areas above and will be used to inform planning within the CDSBEO in the coming school year. In addition, the data will be compiled into an official conference report which will be sent to all Catholic school boards in the province, and shared with the Institute for Catholic Education.

Ontario Catholic Student Leadership Conference data report Principal of Religious and Family Life Education, Jim Roberts, and Catholic student trustee, Sean Fry, provided the board with an overview of the data gathered at the recent Ontario Catholic Student Leadership Conference held in Ottawa in April. Co-hosted by the CDSBEO, in partnership with the Ottawa Catholic School Board, the conference brought together some 350 Catholic student leaders from across the province. As part of the conference program, students participated in a three-hour session centered around the Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations (CGE), as developed by the Institute for Catholic Education. The session was launched with a keynote

Student success board indicator data Each year, the Ministry of Education provides the board with its annual Student Success Indicator Data report. This report is compiled through data which is collected through the Ontario School Information System (OnSIS), and helps to identify areas of success as well as areas where students may be struggling. The data is also shared with school principals, who use it to help guide their school improvement plans, and to identify areas of need for teacher professional development. Superintendent of School Effectiveness, Mark Musca, provided the board with an overview of the report, which details how well our secondary students are doing in high school. The report provides feedback regard-

ing which courses students are struggling with, and how many of them are on track to graduate. If students are at-risk of not graduating, supports are put in place in order to ensure that learners have the help that they need to achieve a meaningful graduation outcome. Credit accumulation data is highlighted in this report as an indicator of how well students are progressing; 95 per cent of CDSBEO grade 9 students attained all eight credits by the end of the 2011-2012 school year, while 87 per cent of students attained the expected 16 credits by the

end of grade 10. The grade 11 credit accumulation rate for the board is 90 per cent. The information provided by the Ministry of Education is also segregated by school. This allows school teams to implement necessary supports for those students who may be experiencing challenges. Overall, the results are extremely positive for the board, with the CDSBEO surpassing the provincial average in almost every measure of student success.

EMC News – The following are highlights from the May 7 Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario (CDSBEO) board meeting at the board office in Kemptville. The CDSBEO board of trustees had the privilege of hearing testimonials from Cornwall Catholic secondary school students who had the opportunity to participate in the Dominican Republic mission trip over March break. Clearly moved by their life-changing experience, the group of 11 students, and three teachers, spent March Break in the small mountain village of El Cercado. The trip marked the twentieth year that a group has gone to assist with building projects in rural mountain communities in the San Jose de Ocoa region. The purpose of the trip each year is to achieve a greater understanding of life in a developing country, as well as to reach out in service. The late Father Lou Quinn, along with the Hospitallers of St. Joseph, began working at the mission in San Jose de Ocoa in 1965. Shortly after his arrival Father Lou, and others, saw the need and potential for organizing a community development cooperative to build infrastructure in Ocoa and the surrounding areas. In the 20-year relationship with this organization, students and staff from our CDSBEO have helped to dig water lines, build houses, build schools, build a medical clinic, build latrines and have assisted with many soil conservation projects. In this time, almost 200 students and 25 staff members have participated in the experience. Over this time, almost $100,000 has been raised to cover the cost of the projects undertaken (an average of $5,000 per year). An additional $20,000 was raised one year to help ADESJO pur-

Eddy and the Stingrays Carleton Place appearance May 25 will assist arena fund

Top arena Under the guidance of now retired manager Joe Crampton and his successor Joanne Henderson the Carleton Place and District Community Centre, with its two ice surfaces and two upstairs community halls, has become well known as one of the best complexes in the region. White extends special thanks to the Arena Staff Association and in particular Henderson, Jessica Smith and Steph Scollan for their assistance in organizing the May 25 dance. “All of the money we raise will go right back into the arena,” he underlines. “I’m hoping we’ll have a very good turnout that evening. Get dressed up, come out and have some good, clean fun. “But you should act fast, we’ve sold a lot of tickets already,” White stresses. As mentioned tickets are available at the arena office on Neelin St. and at Graham Shoes, 139 Bridge St., Carleton Place. Anyone wishing further information should contact Bob White at 613-253-5046.

our own time as volunteers. We want to give back to the facility we spend so much of our time in and also help the people of the community who use it,” White states. The association’s semi-regular dances have helped purchase a number of badly needed amenities and pieces of equipment for the complex. Included was raising monies for the fund established to put new boards in Arena 1 five years ago. Last fall the association donated $5,000 to purchase a modern sound system for the arena. It is now in use by all of those who use the facility regularly, including minor hockey and the figure skating club.

Great group As for Eddy and the Stingrays, White sums them up in one word “fantastic.” “Eddy hasn’t been out here for some time. He says they are looking forward to playing in Carleton Place again.” Billed as Canada’s “No. 1 Rock and Roll Show and Dance Band” Eddy and the Stingrays marked their 30th anniversary in 2010. The band has a wealth of experience and they appear at venues across Ontario and the continent, with an emphasis on eastern Ontario. Eddy and the Stingrays have opened for Chubby Checker, appeared at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta and the John Hancock Building in Boston. Over the course of 33 years they have performed at countless provincial, state and county fairs in Canada and the United States. Earlier this year they were inducted into the

Brockville and Area Music and Performing Arts Hall of Fame. And that is just a glimpse of a lengthy and busy career. Their calendar for this summer already features a dozen other shows in eastern and central Ontario. From Elvis and Buddy Holly, to the Beach Boys, Beatles and everyone in between, Eddy and the Stingrays take you on a nostalgic journey through the 1950s and 1960s, employing their own fast paced and unique musicianship. In Carleton Place May 25 the band will perform three sets and they will wear three different sets of costumes, White notes. He reiterates that profits from this month’s event will be added to the arena fund. Long-term plans call for an expansion and improvement project in Arena 1 which opened in 1969. “There’s a committee in place who are looking at what it will take to add modern dressing rooms as well as improve the Arena 1 washroom facilities,” White says. White notes that larger, modern, wheelchair accessible washrooms for the main arena have been on the “to-do list” for some time. “The better the facilities, the better it is for everyone using the arena,” he observes. “But this sort of work is very expensive and it will take time to raise the money. We (staff association) are doing our part to assist.” The Arena Staff Association has been involved in a number of fundraising activities in recent years. Among the special events they have put together was a ‘Bleacher Bash’ in 2000 which raised money to outfit the then brand new second ice surface (Arena 2) with permanent seating. Originally the structure, which was built with the support of the entire community, had only temporary seating. “We do this (fundraising) on

up in clothing from that era and of course we are encouraging that. Buy your tickets, put on your glad rags, come out and have some fun.” White even has a lead for those who wish to purchase clothing made especially for the occasion. He suggests Carleton Place area residents call Bev Hynes at 613-257-5802. “Bev makes some wonderful costumes and she has some available for sale for this event. Poodle skirts, tops, chokers – items that fit the occasion. They aren’t expensive so if you are interested give her a call,” the chief organizer advises. The arena hall will be suitably decorated for the occasion. “Even the bowls for the late night snacks will be made from old (vinyl) records,” White says. Prizes will be awarded to the ‘Best Dressed Couple’ and the ‘Best Dance Couple.’



EMC Entertainment – Those who attend an upcoming concert and dance in Carleton Place will find themselves transported back to the roots of rock and roll. The always popular Ottawa band ‘Eddy and the Stingrays’ will perform at Carleton Place and District Community Centre (the town’s arena complex) on Saturday night, May 25 from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Sponsored by the Carleton Place Arena Staff Association the venture will take the form of a 1950s and ‘60s era dance. It will be held in the main upper hall of the arena on Neelin Street. Tickets, at $20 each, are available at the arena office or Graham Shoes, 139 Bridge St., Carleton Place. All proceeds from the venture will go to the Carleton Place Arena Fund which is in place to raise money needed to make long-term improvements to the complex. The arena is one of the main focal points for activities in the growing town of 10,000. Bob White, senior facilities operator at the arena (he works for the Carleton Place Department of Recreation and Culture), is the chief organizer of the show and dance. White is well known for running numerous fundraising activities in the community, especially music shows. “We expect this to be a really popular show. We are limiting attendance to 300 in order to have a larger dance floor,” White explains. “There is something about that musical era. People come out in groups to enjoy an evening of nostalgia, dancing and fun.” Popular Carleton Place musician and entertainer Jack Denovan will be the emcee for the event. A light lunch will be served as part of the ticket price at approximately 11 p.m. White says a ‘50s and ‘60s dance “creates a totally different atmosphere than most (music) events. “A lot of people like to dress

the course of several decades. He was equally angered by the massive haul of artifacts from Empress of Ireland which lies in just 130 feet of water, within easy reach of divers. Due to its depth the Titanic wreck is accessible only to those in mini subs. In something of an irony, numerous recreational divers died during descents to the Empress which developed a reputation for being very dangerous. I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sad the Canadian government took so long to act, allowing private individuals to reap a harvest of items that should have been left where they were.

and exhausting journey that eventually brought them to a new life. Because of lack of good record keeping in those days there is some discrepancy as to the exact dates. What is known is that the Hardy family came to Canada aboard the Empress of Ireland. What makes it especially interesting for us is that my grandmother always said the Empress tragedy occurred while the vessel was returning to Liverpool on the home leg of the same voyage that brought her and the rest of the Hardy family to Canada. That much she was absolutely certain about! Next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 100th anniversary observances will be keyed by the planned display at the Canadian Museum of Civilization. Some controversy swirls around the exhibition. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because the key artifacts were salvaged from the submerged wreck by Montreal diver Philippe Beaudry during expeditions before laws were enacted to regulate the practice. In a front page story April 29 the Ottawa Citizen newspaper revealed the museum paid Beaudry $1.75 million to acquire his collection. The artifacts carried an appraised value of $3.075 million. It is thought a tax receipt from the federal government may have accounted for the remainder? The acquisition, financed in part by a $425,000 grant from the Department of Canadian Heritage, concludes protracted negotiations between Beaudry and the federal government. Included in the sale is the shipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brass fog bell which is considered â&#x20AC;&#x153;the jewel of the collection.â&#x20AC;? It alone was appraised at $1.75 million. Other artifacts include navigation equipment, furnishings and personal objects, china and silverware, documents and books and even a remnant of the ship itself. The sale of salvaged objects from death ships such as Titanic and the Empress of Ireland always draws flaks from critics who argue historic wrecks should be left undisturbed as a tribute to the dead. I agree with that thinking! The items involved should have been left where they were. The vesselâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final resting place was rediscovered by divers in 1964, some four kilometres from the shore of Pointeau-Père, Quebec which is the home of a regional museum commemorating the sinking. The location is 500 kilometres northeast of Montreal. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certainly not the fault of the present government. Past administrations bear the shame of ignoring the importance of the wreck and allowing the Empress to be visited by divers who stripped the vessel of untold artifacts (numbering in the hundreds) and sold Family connection them to the highest bidder. Clearly our Among them were my late maternal government used tax dollars for the grandparents.

EMC Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; This week I am going to bring you up to date with regard to an ongoing story which has reached an expensive conclusion for Canadian taxpayers. I have written about this twice previously in recent years. The Canadian Museum of Civilization, located in the Hull sector of Gatineau, is currently preparing an exhibition on the tragic story of the ocean liner â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Empress of Irelandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The displays, which are scheduled to open to the public next year, will coincide with the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the vessel in the St. Lawrence River in 1914. The 99th anniversary is coming up later this month. In the early morning hours of May 29, 1914 the Empress sank near Rimouski, Quebec after colliding with the Norwegian collier â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Storstadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in thick fog. The 14,000 ton ship capsized and sank in just 15 minutes taking 1,012 people to a watery grave. Among the dead were 840 passengers. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eight more than the number of passengers who perished when â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Titanicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; famously struck an iceberg and sank in the Atlantic, off the coast of Canada, two years earlier. The centennial of the Titanic tragedy was observed on April 15 of last year and made news around the world. The reason Titanic had a greater loss of life (more than 1,500 perished) than the Empress is because she carried far more crew members. More people to care for the needs of her well heeled passengers! The Empress was mainly an immigrant ship which brought ordinary people to the New World. Her sinking was our nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest maritime disaster. Yet in typical Canadian fashion the name and the tragic story of the big ship isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t well known. I blame that partly on a system that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t teach enough of our young people Canadian history. Along with our characteristic low-key approach to publicizing or even talking about Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own triumphs and tragedies! I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe in disturbing ship wrecks. But at least some of the artifacts which had already been taken from the submerged Empress will be put to some practical use, helping teach history. My wife Kathleen and I regularly travel by air between Canada and Europe. The simplicity of modern jet travel stands in sharp contrast to the difficult ocean passage for immigrants in the 18th, 19th and early 20th Centuries. Countless people traveled by ship from Liverpool and other ports in the United Kingdom and Ireland to begin new lives in Canada.

County’s first housing, homelessness plan nears completion of draft stage By STACEY ROY

EMC News – Lanark County has confirmed seven priorities when it comes to how it will tackle the realities of a housing shortage and homelessness in its rural communities. The priorities were confirmed after two public meetings were recently held in the county to gauge stakeholder feedback. Smiths Falls mayor Dennis Staples attended the Smiths Falls meeting a couple of weeks ago and has urged his council peers to provide their comments this week for inclusion in the report before it is submitted to the county and then ministry for approval. One suggestion he had was to expand on the recommendation to consider surplus municipal land for potential affordable housing development from the municipal level to all levels of

government land. Smiths Falls Coun. Lorraine Allen applauded the county’s efforts to draft this inaugural document for the region, saying: “I think it’s something that’s going to really help us as we move forward.” Coun. Jay Brennan expressed his surprise at the extent of the problem facing the community. He noted 180 families are currently on a waiting list for housing in Smiths Falls and that these individuals can wait up to 594 days for emergency placement. The county’s plan is split into seven priorities: increasing access to housing, ending homelessness, non-profit housing, private market, coordination with community services, meeting a broad range of community needs, and environmental sustainability. “We did keep it fairly high level,” added Sandy Grey, La-

nark County housing manager, of the process going forward. “We hope to be able to go to the Lanark County Community Services Committee in June with a draft.” Before this takes place staff is working to draft the plan’s background, measurement items and a working definition of what is affordable housing. Of all the action items highlighted in what will be the draft report, Grey said increasing communication with the public and establishing new community partners is a critical priority going forward. “People don’t even know the programs we currently have,” Grey added. “They could make a big difference to community members.” A copy of the county’s priorities is available on the Smiths Falls website (www.smithsfalls. ca) under Town Hall, Council, Council agenda and minutes.

Local agency receives victim service award at Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Park EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Recently, the Lanark County Community Justice Program was the proud recipient of the 2013 Victim Services Award of Distinction. The Lanark County Community Justice Program is a restorative justice initiative that offers community-based court diversion services to youth and adults. The award was presented to Christine Peringer (board chair), Sheri Halladay (program coordinator) and Joellen McHard (executive director). The three were invited by the Minister of the Attorney General to attend the ceremony at Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Park and receive the award on behalf of the organization. The Attorney Generalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Victim Services Awards of Distinction program was started in 2006. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These extraordinary individuals and organizations help victims of crime rebuild their lives. They are a credit to the victim services community across Ontario, and I am proud to recognize them for their tremendous

work,â&#x20AC;? said John Gerretsen, Attorney General. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our program facilitates faceto-face forums where people directly involved and affected by an incident come together with the help of trained volunteer facilitators to discuss what happened, listen to what others have to say, and reach a decision about how to make things right,â&#x20AC;? McHard shared. She added that â&#x20AC;&#x153;it is important that victims get a chance to voice their concerns, obtain insight about the incident, and have input into how the offender will make amends.â&#x20AC;? Accused persons have an opportunity to take steps toward repairing the harm. Another important outcome is steering the offenders toward community services which might help them to avoid making similar mistakes in the future. The justice system benefits by a reduction in expensive court costs, in line with the values of the provincial â&#x20AC;&#x153;Justice on Targetâ&#x20AC;? initiative. The police benefit by being able to refer

cases that meet their community policing mandate. And of course, the community as a whole benefits when problems are resolved in a positive way by the people most affected and because of the low incidence of repeat offences by those who participate in the program. Our program deals with minor criminal offences and most of our clients are youth in trouble with the law for the first time. To qualify, they must be willing to take responsibility for their actions. Some people think the restorative approach is â&#x20AC;&#x153;soft on crimeâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but our clients tell us that it is a lot harder to look your victim in the eye and hear about how their lives were negatively affected by your actions, than to sit in a courtroom and say nothing as your lawyer speaks on your behalf. The victim reports leaving the forum with a greater understanding of the incident and a huge sense of relief that they have been heard and have been given the opportunity to share the impact the crime has

had on their lives and the lives of their loved ones. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is wonderful to see the contribution that the Lanark Community Justice Program provides is being acknowledged in this way. The dedication provided by their team of volunteers and professionals to restorative community justice is a true testimony to the value of commit-

ment and hard work. It is a model that other communities would be wise to emulateâ&#x20AC;? said Randy Hillier, MPP for Lanark, Frontenac, Lennox & Addington. These awards recognize victims of crime whose courage and dedication have raised awareness of victimsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; issues in Ontario, and organizations, professionals and volunteers that advocate

on their behalf. Ruth Campbell, chair of the Office for Victims of Crime stated that â&#x20AC;&#x153;this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recipients are proof that courage, compassion and dedication can truly make a difference. The Office for Victims of Crime is proud to participate in this awards program to help raise awareness of victimsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; issues in Ontario.â&#x20AC;?

Helium shortage cannot ground St. John’s space balloon program By DESMOND DEVOY

EMC News – A helium shortage was not enough to keep the balloon of Grade 6 science students grounded last week. In order to get the special weather balloon being worked on by students at St. John Catholic Elementary School airborne last Wednesday, May 8, Peter McCracken of the Lanark County Space Agency, phoned around to Montreal, Kingston, and, finally, Ottawa, where he was able to get his hands on the last available canister of the gas. But even if the helium supply continues to dip, McCracken knows that his agency’s balloons will still get airborne. “Hydrogen works even better than helium, and it’s cheaper than helium,” said McCracken. “People think of the Hindenburg. It is flammable,” he admitted of the ill-fated German zeppelin which blew up in New Jersey in 1937. But the worst that would happen to a weather balloon full of hydrogen “would be like having a big puff of flame,” in the sky. The balloon rose quickly – not so high that it “slipped the surly bonds of earth and touched the face of God,” but it came pretty close, literally to the edge of space. The GPS system on board let students, parents, and staff see the direction it headed in, displayed on a screen at that night’s spaghetti dinner in the gym. According to the agency, it headed north to Balderson in Tay Valley Township, before veering east and heading over Almonte in Mississippi Mills, to Upper Dwyer Hill Road. At that point, a storm hit, and the balloon was taken northwest and ended up near Madawaska Provincial Park near Highway 41, south of Barry’s Bay. As of Tuesday morning, a tracking team from the space

agency is still combing the densely wooded area to try to retrieve the craft. Of 12 balloons that it has sent up, it has only ever not retrieved one. During previous balloon launches, the agency’s balloons have been located as far away as northern Maine (twice), Vermont, St-Jerome, Que., Hawkesbury, Adirondack Park in upstate New York, Cornwall, and in the water off of the Ivy Lea Bridge in the 1,000 Islands region. In 2011, the agency broke the world record for amateur high altitude radio ballooning. The space agency launched its first balloon back in November of 2007, and had been sending up balloons with the help of schools at a rate of about two a year, but has since stepped it back to one a year. The agency has partnered with St. John for the last few years, making this most recent launch their fourth at the school. Despite their expertise and interest in space, the American, Russian, and Chinese space agencies need not worry about being eclipsed by the youngsters from the valley. “We’ve never launched a rocket,” McCracken said with a laugh, though they might like to expand out into gliders.

While the children counted down to launch time like the old space shuttle launches at Cape Canaveral in Florida, bringing a child’s stuff toy along for the ride, along with GPS tracking technology, for McCracken, the fun elements open the door for life-long learning. “It’s really fun and hopefully inspirational,” said McCracken. “Some of the guys are very interested in the science and engineering side of it.” They asked lots of questions during the several weeks of the project, as part of a larger school project on flight and space.

people don’t like change. I get that.” McLean said he wanted the deal to mean that the team would remain in Perth, and that it would bring “longterm stability.” While neither McLean nor Lyon would divulge the final amount that was paid to secure ownership, they promised that the proceeds from the sale will go back into improvements at the arena, like seating. Strong connection The Perth Blue Wings have a strong family connection to the McLean family. Michael’s father Frank used to play for

Town seeks Perth Medal nods EMC News - Do you know someone who is always helping others, gives many hours of volunteer time and consistently works for the good of the community? If you do, then why not nominate him/her for the 2013 Perth Medal? The Perth Medal is awarded annually by the Town of Perth to a person who has shown the greatest distinction in a number of endeavors to benefit the Perth community as a whole, with no monetary gain to themselves. This may be in the fields of community work, fundraising, voluntary work, etc. Nominees must be residents of Perth or the surrounding townships. The activity being recognized must be totally and singularly related to achievements

within the town of Perth. No person elected to public office may be nominated, nor may the award be presented posthumously. Submissions required in writing by noon Tuesday May 28, 2013. Submissions will not be considered after this date. Please send or deliver nominations to: Pauline Fitchett, Manager Perth & District Chamber of Commerce 34 Herriott Street, Perth, ON K7H 1T2 613-267-3200 Fax: 613.267.6797 email to: welcome@perthchamber. com

In fact, Frank attempted to buy the team himself about 30 years ago, according to his son. “He wanted to be a partner (on the deal), but I shut him out!” joked McLean, before adding that his father was one of only two people to whom he spoke about the deal outside of the Blue Wings organization. In fact, McLean only told his staff of the deal on Monday morning. “My dad is very excited,” he said. When he owned the Smiths Falls Jr. A Bears for several years more than a decade ago – a team on which McLean served as both general manager and coach – his father never missed a game. McLean said he has good memories of growing up with the Blue Wings, watching them play. Bringing that family-friendly atmosphere back in force to the Perth arena is one of his priorities. “I want affordable family entertainment to return to Perth,” said McLean, pointing to his record in Smiths Falls, where Bears attendance went from one of the lowest in the thenCJHL to one of the highest in the space of one season. “I want the stands to be

make each game an event, like (we did) in Smiths Falls.” McLean also promised that he will be in talks with town hall about getting a new public address system at the arena, as well as investing in a new dressing room for the club. He will also be looking to invest in new equipment and jerseys for the Blue Wings. “These are the things that private ownership can bring,” said McLean. Another twist in the sale is that McLean will not only own the team, but will be coaching it, too. “I bought this team to coach it,” he said. “It was a decision of the heart, not of the brain,” to buy it, he said with a laugh. “This is no different from being president of the Rotary Club or (working) with the Lanark Animal Welfare Society.” While he will be feeling the pressure in the front office, as a coach he will also see it from behind the bench too. “If we don’t win, that’s my fault,” he added. “I like that pressure… accountability will always improve performance.” While he will be handling management and coaching duties, he admits that he

“This will continue to be a volunteer organization,” said McLean. McLean (who also coached the Jr. B Carleton Place Kings 20 years ago) intends to use his connections with Smiths Falls and Carleton Place because, as a Junior B team, “that is where you get your players. Our recruiting zone is 30 miles” in radius. “You can only get so many kids from Perth.” Another dream for McLean is to make Perth the place where Junior B players want to lace up their skates, where young players can “bust your ass for three years, and get a free ride” to a scholarship afterwards. He admits that most of his players are not on their way to the National Hockey League or even American Hockey League, but are instead, what he calls “student athletes.” Another dream is to have some manner of revived rivalry with the Westport Rideaus, a team that McLean greatly respects. “This is the dream,” he says, of seeing some type of playoff-like Game 7 in Perth – in overtime, of course – between Perth and Westport, which, to the best of his recollection, hasn’t occurred in nearly 50 years.

As the 2012-13 season wound down, McLean made his approach to the team, just days before the annual awards’ ceremony. The next week, following awards night, the board was finally able to digest the information. “Everyone had their initial hesitation,” admitted Lyon. “We (the board) discussed it for several hours. It was a very long meeting.” Finally, the decision was made to accept McLean’s offer, once it had been gone over with a fine tooth comb by a lawyer. “The best thing is that (the team) stays SEEKING NOMINATIONS FOR THE 2013 PERTH MEDAL: Do you know someone who is always helping others, gives many hours of volunteer time and consistently works for the good of the community?

\TOWN OF PERTH’S SANITARY TREATMENT CAPACITY INCREASES TO ACCOMMODATE GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT: At the Committee of the Whole meeting on May 7th, 2013, Environmental Services Director, Grant Machan advised that as a result of implementing various programs over the last two years, there is now sanitary treatment capacity reserve available to service approximately 500 to 700 new homes. Further, with the successful completion of an Environmental Assessment program in 2013, it is anticipated that sanitary treatment capacity will be available to service 9,000 to 11,000 residents by 2014. The confirmation of recovered sanitary treatment capacity means that the Town’s self-imposed hiatus from considering new multi-unit projects has ended. New subdivisions and/or projects requiring sewage treatment capacity may now be considered. This provides the Town with an ability to support new phases of development in the short term while it proceeds with the Environmental Assessment process to identify the best options for creating more treatment capacity to facilitate growth in the mid to longer term. For economic development inquiries, please contact Shellee Evans, Director of Community Services at 613-267-3311 ext. 2227 or by email at VICTORIA DAY HOLIDAY HOURS: Perth Town Hall will be closed for the Victoria Day Holiday on Monday, May 20th, 2013.

There’s definitely something else in the air this spring, however. There are a few more little red flags perched on the tops of cars and there are more red Tshirts and jerseys marked by a distinctive Spartan logo adorning passers-by across the region. Yes, hockey fever has hit the area a bit harder this spring. The Ottawa Senators eased past the Montreal Canadiens in five games last week, including a pair of raucous encounters at Scotiabank Place. For those without tickets, fans filled bars, restaurants and living rooms to watch games on TV. The Sens Mile, the nickname given to Elgin Street in Ottawa come playoff time, is once again an exuberant, festive gathering place for both hardcore fans and fair-weather faithful alike. Securing passage to the second round of the National Hockey League playoffs will only draw larger crowds. The city, once dubbed the worst sports city in Canada, is once again showing how off the mark such a com-

ment was. It is times like these, when a city institution becomes something more than just a local curiosity, that the true value of sports teams becomes apparent. It turns everyone wearing Senators garb, whether along Palladium Drive in Kanata or Gore Street in Perth, into a friendly face. It gives everyone at school or the office a chance to talk about something that is exciting and current, allowing people to cast aside their everyday worries and fears for a few fleeting weeks. But it doesn’t happen every year – the last time the Senators won a playoff round was 2007, when they reached the Stanley Cup final – and it only occurs in the springtime. Area fans have only one hometown rooting interest when it comes to professional team sports so far, but that’s about to change. By the end of 2014, there will be a couple more players on the block in the form of Canadian Football League and North American Soccer League franchises. It will take a while for fans to warm to their new clubs, but all it will likely take is a good postseason run to capture the sporting imagination. Let’s enjoy these days: they are part of what adds a splash of colour to the fabric of our communities.

Honourable Malcolm Cameron

Fifth dimension revealed EMC Lifestyle - Recently I wrote about the satisfying feeling I had from sorting toy bins under the futon and rediscovering the hardwood floor there. (Yes, small things.) Even before that, in February, I wrote about the “fifth dimension,” which former roommates and I had defined as the place where lost things go. I have determined, thanks to a spate of marathon decluttering on Saturday, that the fifth dimension may be in my home office. Because I know you are devoted readers who hang upon my every word and commit it all to memory (eye roll), you likely recall that when I wrote “Where the lost things are” I mentioned the disappearance of my penny book. I’ve had the little coin-collection book with the special sleeves since I was a kid, and it always lived in the bookcase with my encyclopedias until I purged those a few years back. I moved the penny book “to a safe place” and haven’t seen it since. I hate those safe places. They defeat me every time. I had been hoping to rediscover the book before all of the pennies currently in circulation disappear because I was several years behind. I knew I had pennies dating back to sometime in the 1930s, but I wasn’t sure where I had left off. In that same column, I mentioned how I had misplaced my ancient iPod – the one that is so old it doesn’t connect to the Interwebs and, thusly, does not come equipped with that handy “find the iPod” app. I keep it on my desk. It disappeared. I tore my teeny tiny office apart trying to find it. I figured it must have fallen into the garbage pail or recycle bin and was gone forever. Then it suddenly reappeared from beneath a pad of Post-It Notes – on my desk.

Fifth dimension? Last week I noticed some of the shelves in my office bookcase were so laden with files and books they were starting to wow (and not a happy “Wow!”), and some of the lightweight backing on the STEPHANIE GRAY case was being pushed out. Obviously some serious purging was overdue. Trouble is, like any sort of decluttering in my house, you can’t purge one area without purging another. It becomes a “project.” I store older files in another part of the house, so before I could remove office files to storage, I needed to sort through the stored files first. Some of them were so old they were growing silver nose hairs. What? Anyway, I filled a blue bin and a garbage bag with crud from the storage area, then moved everything off the bookcase in my office, sorted it, fixed the bookcase and filled it up again. It took hours, but I think I removed about 50 pounds of old files and at least a pound of dust. The recycling guy is going to have a lot of blue boxes to dump this week. And guess what I found? Yep - the penny book. Fifth dimension for sure. I can now verify that my collection dates back to 1938 and that I had every penny up to and including 1999. I sat on the floor on Mother’s Day and managed to update the collection to 2012, except for 2004 (but I have a jar or two to check yet). Maybe the kids can go on the Interwebs and see if any of the coins I collected haphazardly back in the 1980s are special. Meanwhile, I’m going to put the penny book in a safe place. And if you’ve lost anything, let me know and I will check my spooky office for you.

Walks with Tux Walking around our neighbourhood and throughout town this week, I saw we weren’t alone in our struggles with the dreaded grubs. They’re tearing apart lawns and property owners are pulling out their hair, wondering how to fix the problem. Apparently we see the effects in the spring, but the best time to address the issue is in June when the eggs begin to hatch. In Ontario, legislation limits our options, but you can purchase Nematodes to help kills the grubs. Until then, the experts say keeping a healthy lawn can help. That said, my thumb is far from green, so head to your local nursery to learn more.

Perth Historical Society changing meeting locations I have a good news piece in the lineup and we thought this would make for the perfect opening: History has been made by the Perth Historical Society. Due to its growing popularity, the Perth Historical Society had to change its meeting address.

It’s a bigger venue allowing them to accommodate more people. The meetings are open to the public for a toonie fee. Have a Private I idea for me?

Reader offended by MP’s newsletter To The Editor, I sometimes wonder how local MP Scott Reid sees us, his constituents. If his newsletter “Keeping in Touch” is evidence of his estimation of my ability to think for myself, to bring reason and research to important questions, then I am offended. The latest newsletter is headlined “Pleading insanity shouldn’t be a “get out of jail free” card. Mr Reid asks “What do YOU think?” and supplies a multiple choice answer -- actually it should be multiple choice but it is a simplistic black-and-white two-choice response: “Yes! Dangerous offenders should stay locked up.” or “No! Dangerous offenders should be reformed and released quickly.” Nowhere in the newsletter does Mr Reid tell us that the government will ensure enough funding that mentally ill prisoners now locked up in prisons will receive treatment for their illness. Nowhere does he define what he means by “reformed” or “dangerous.” Nowhere does he tell us the current

system of review boards considers several thousand cases a year, and that all the evidence presented by the Crown, the accused, the medical profession and other witnesses is taken very seriously in reaching a decision as to whether a person should remain in custody, be released, or enter a program of controlled release. In the overwhelming majority of cases those judged safe to be released are no longer a threat to society. In the past five years there have been three or four widely-reported cases of horrific murders committed by mentally ill persons. While we would prevent all of these from happening if we could, it is hardly reasonable to say that criminally insane dangerous offenders are “all too often” given early release from custody, as Scott Reid claims. In one of the most highly profiled cases, Vincent Li, the man who decapitated his seat-mate on a bus, the amendment Prime Minister Harper proposes would not have made a difference at all because Mr Li had not been diagnosed with a psychiatric disorder before his action. In other instances, if the defen-

dants had exhibited symptoms indicating they were a danger to society, the review board would not have allowed them to be released. It is not obvious how the courts would recognize that they were high risk when the adjudicators didn’t. I feel that Prime Minister Harper and the Conservatives are not only scaremongering, but have done a great deal to stigmatize mental illness. Mental illness is just that, an illness. Those who suffer from it are our friends, neighbours, family. They are not Frankensteins to be locked away in our prison system forever. If the Conservatives are serious about preventing crime due to mental illness, why aren’t they providing more funding for mental health research and treatment? Mr Reid, please do not send me any more of your newsletters. I think I understand your values and principles. You obviously don’t understand mine. Louise McDiarmid Lanark County

Students enjoy their tour of charity to Guatemala By LAURIE WEIR

EMC News – Students of St. John Catholic High School in Perth gathered in their classroom for an informal chat about their recent trip to Guatemala. For the past year, the students – and their parents – have been raising the necessary funds to take the trip. Some $22,000 was raised through various functions like school dances, bake sales, community yard sale and endless other events. “It was so worth it,” said Tori Kehoe, who along with others in the group, said the experience was a once-in-a-lifetime one that they won’t soon forget. “We all didn’t even know each other before this all started,” said Maili MacKenzie, who added that they only saw each other in the halls of their school, never much taking the time to get to know each other. Little did they know that their bond of friendship would be forged thousands of miles away. “We’re like this really close group of friends now,” said Cassandra Hull. Other students to participate in this 17th annual mission trip included Mackenzie Thornbury, Morgan Quick, Zach Haime, Khadejah Beauchamp, Joe Stanzel, along with teacher Laurie Reesor. The trip took students to an orphanage one hour from Guatemala City, to Parramos. They worked in their gardens and learned about their culture. They even taught the children some games. To help them prepare, the students and teachers also meet once a week to learn about the current society. “Every day, we went to bed exhausted. And it was freezing cold. We went to teach the children… but they taught us,” said Mackenzie Thornbury. The students shared their thoughts on not being able to take their cell phone with them. “We didn’t even miss it,” said Beauchamp. “Our phone was a topic of

body. “I’d like to see students become more involved,” added Quick, who added it was a great opportunity to make a difference, and it was an experience that moved them… to tears. “The hardest part was saying goodbye.” The students expressed their thanks

He ran the race in under 17 minutes, breaking the previous record by more than 90 seconds. Congrats! All four soccer teams played Almonte District High School on May 1. The senior girls lost a tough battle 3-1. The junior girls played hard but lost 3-2. Our junior boys played well, ending the game with a 1-1 tie, while the senior boys won easily by a score of 4-0. The biggest excitement of the day was the lack of referee for the girls games. For the senior team the Almonte coach refereed but he left before the junior girls game. Stranded without a referee they thought the game might be cancelled until the senior girls goalie Melissa Adams volunteered. Thank you Melissa for saving the game! Congratulations to the girls soccer teams for gaining their first points of the season on Wednesday, May 8. Both games were close with the juniors finishing with a score of 1-1 and the seniors with a no-score deadlock.The boys soccer teams travelled to Carleton Place that same day to play a strong team. Alex Fillipoff scored on a free kick with two minutes to left in the game to help the Devils win 2-1. Congrats! On Friday, May 3, our school held the annual Cross-town race.

The event was a major highlight of week-long Hunger Awareness Week events organized by Samantha Davidson and other staff and volunteers at The Table Community Food Centre to bring attention to the pressing social problem of food disparity. As reported by Food Bank Canada, each month close to 900,000 Canadians use food banks. Thursday’s event at the Crystal Palace drove home the point to students of how food insecurity affects our global population. Students were arbitrarily divided into three groups, accurately representing the world population. The affluent “haves” for whom food insecurity is not an issue consisted of 15 students who received a plentiful sitdown meal of pasta and juice, served by attentive waiters.

Family... where life begins, and love never ends



McDANIEL, Terry - In loving memory of “Turk” who passed away May 17, 2011. Two years ago God wrapped His arms around you and whispered “Come with Me” Going forward in life without you has not been as easy as people might think it to be. Though you were unique, like no one that has ever been before or will come after. No one can speak your voice, say your piece, smile your smile or shine your light. No one can take your place in my life. For it was yours and yours alone to fill. Loving and missing you every day Betty

CONBOY, Donald A. – In loving memory of a dear husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather who passed away May 21, 1988. Never more than a thought away Quiety remembered every day. No need for words except to say, still loved, still missed in every way. Lovingly remembered, Dencie and family

McCORMACK, Nancy – In loving memory of a dear daughter, sister, aunt and great aunt who passed away May 15, 2011. Gone is the face we loved so dear, Silent is the voice we loved to hear; Too far away for sight or speech, But not too far for thought to reach. Sweet to remember her who once was here, And who, though absent, is just as dear. Lovingly remembered Mom and family

SMITH, Jeffrey June 13, 1976–May 18, 2008 Remembrance Remembrance is a golden chain Death tries to break, but all in vain. To have, to love, and then to part Is the greatest sorrow of one’s heart. The years may wipe out many things But some they wipe out never. Like memories of those happy times When we were all together. (Author unknown) Mom, Dad, Scott and Staci

BOND – In loving memory of Frederick Nicholas. Passed away May 13, 2011. God saw you getting tired. When a cure was not to be. So He closed His arms around you And whispered “Come to Me”. You suffered so much in silence. Your spirit did not bend. You faced your pain with courage. Until the very end. You tried so hard to stay with us. So God took you to His loving home. And freed you from all your pain. From your loving companion, Linda Thompson Children - Sheri McKenny (Barry), Tammy Hutton (Richard) Stepfather of Patricia Leal Proud Grandfather of Courtney and Ashley, Bryce, Bailey and Brett xxoo

As we loved you, so we miss you, In our memory you are near; Loved, remembered, longed for always With the passing of each year. Your loving wife & family

JOHNSTON, Mark Jan 24, 1962 -May 13,2003. In loving memory of a very dear son, grandson, uncle, father, nephew and friend to many. When we are in need of comfort, We walk down memory lane, There we see you smiling And we talk with you again. Yet missing you is the hardest part, It never goes away. But to hear your voice, to see your smile, Or to be with you for just a while This would be our greatest wish today. We love you and miss you. Loved forever Mother

They say there is a reason They say that time will heal But neither time nor reason Will change the way we feel, For no-one knows the heartache That lies behind our smiles No-one know how many times We have broken down and cried.

EMC News - The grass is getting greener at FIELDWORK these days. Buds are bursting. The ground has softened, and all sorts of birds are migrating back to the field, scouting about for some new digs after their long winter sojourns south. Soon they will also be watching with curiosity as 5 new artists migrate to the site from various parts of Canada to spend time exploring, observing, creating and installing work in preparation for the opening of the FIELDWORK 2013 season. On Saturday, May 18 from 2 to 4 p.m. you are invited to join the spring revelry at the opening of FIELDWORKâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sixth season of presenting imaginative art in and around a road-side field west of Perth. Meet the artists and hear what they have to say about their creative processes during a brief introduction to their work at 2:30 p.m. The materials, conceptual frameworks, and processes employed by the artists presenting work at FIELDWORK this year are diverse. Winnipeg based inter-media artist Leah Decter will spend a week at FIELDWORK investigating the relationships between beaver and human settlements and processes of (de)colonising. Decterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work at FIELDWORK is the third in her ongoing series, Castor Canadensis. ( Saskatchewanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Laura Hale will fly in to spend 10 days using materials found on site to create one of her ephemeral environmental landworks. Hale reflects on and responds to the environment she is in, building her work in situ. It will be interesting to see how the FIELDWORK site inspires her. ( For those â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;robinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; amongst us with ears to the ground, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll want to check out Lanark County resident Sheila Macdonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interactive â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;eardrumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Intended as part auditorium and part messaging system to the underground it invites us all to consider the sonic culture of the soil â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and to have a bit of fun! For the creatures looking to move up in the world, Uta Ricciusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; suburban nests may be the dream homes they are looking for. Her foam â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;mobile homesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; comment on the suburban sprawl, packaged houses, and the artificial perception of choice she witnesses on her home turf of Ottawa. (http://www. FIELDWORK Collective member, Erin Robertson (Wakefield) will also be stretching her creative wings in the 5th new spot on the site. (www. Work by several previous FIELDWORK artists will also be continuing through this season. There will be lots to explore. FIELDWORK is free and open to the public all the time throughout the year. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great place to take a picnic for an afternoon of exploration with friends and family.

Loss of iPhone tests technologically challenged Religion Today REV. PETER GOODYEAR

seem buried so deep weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never access them again. But as surprising as it may sound, there is a power in the universe that wants to connect with us to restore us to what we were designed to be. In the opening chapters of the Bible,

we are told that we are made in the image of the one true God and that as human beings that is our primary identity. And even if we forget who we are, the one who made us can regenerate us and empower us to live the life we were

made for in Him. Every flaw in our operating system can be corrected and we can be made new. And that is better that a new iPhone any day. Peter Goodyear,

tered my elbow, leading to one surgery, three casts and a year of daily painful physiotherapy. I destroyed one iPhone in a swimming pool baptism incident, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another one at the bottom of the Tay River near Sun Bakery. If you find it, drop it off at the church, OK? So, I prepared myself for the worst on Sunday when this iPhone wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t power on, despite my numerous attempts at charging and rebooting it. And when AppleCare online said it was out of warranty, I figured, par for the course. In fact, I was in for a pleasant surprise. I actually had 55 days left on the warranty. So I was told with a battery issue like this they would most likely swap out the phone for a new one. Most of the memory was backed up so maybe this would be relatively painless with minimal losses. In the end however, they replaced the lithium battery and all my access to my content was completely back. Of course, life doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just happen to our phones. We face challenges. Sometimes weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re forced to learn new skill sets to survive. Sometimes we get hurt. Our guts get torn out and we feel like weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re tucking them back and miraculously still functioning. Sometimes we feel lost. Sometimes the answers we seek

EMC Religion - So my iPhone died on Sunday. Fortunately it was after I used it to review the notes for my sermon. Since I first got a Palm Pilot years ago I have used my hand held devices to track my calendar and contacts. To write notes and make lists. It has truly become an extension of my brain. Palm made me learn a new alphabet to type in my content. Then when I got the Palm Treo it was also a phone and I had to get used to using my thumbs on a tiny keyboard. I lost my Treo for a week in 2004 and I was a wreck. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to replace it. And I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine living without it. I searched every inch of my house, my office and the road in between. I searched my car and my garage. I searched the backyard and around the front deck. I went through the seven stages of grief. Denial - this canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be happening to me. Anger - where on the earth is that stupid thing?! Bargaining please God! I need my phone! And how did I let I let myself get so attached to it? Depression - this sucks! Finally acceptance - I guess itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gone. And then in one last ditch effort after all hope was exhausted I crawled under my desk at work and deep in the back corner I found the phone and spent the next 10 minutes doing a happy dance. It was another year before I broke that phone to bits while falling off of my bike. When I came to after blacking out I tucked the guts of the phone back in and called my wife to see what time it was and how long Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been out. My first iPhone was in my left pocket on another day when I was riding my bike and when I unthinkingly reached for it with my right hand, I fell and shat-

House league teams still have some openings for participants and coaches will be starting to contact players shortly (if they havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t already). Jerseys will also be handed out the first night out. Coaches are sought for the U13 house league team, and if interested, please visit the website

at for details and email links. The adult teams will kick off Friday night at Conlon Farm, 6:30 p.m. start. Perth will be one of the 10 teams in the Ottawa league. For all your Perth soccer club news, please visit their website for a schedule and lots of information.

Sunny, warm temperatures greet twilighters EMC Sports - The Tuesday Twilight League started play on May 7 with a sunny, warm evening.

Skip Patterson and Kevin Kinch took advantage of the weather to have the two low scores. Skip with a 38 on the front and Kevin with a 40 on the back.

This year the year end prize table contains a golf trip to Vegas for several of the golfers. Qualifying names will be drawn each week with a draw from pool of qualifiers about once a month to choose the Vegas bound team.

Charities win at from breakfasts

EMC Sports - The Snow Road Snowmobile Club is well-known for its fundraising breakfasts and other events held throughout the winter season. The funds raised are used to maintain the clubhouse, pay utilities and taxes, etc. as the club does not receive any money from the sale of snowmobile permits. However, as the snowmobile season winds down the volunteers turn their efforts to help others recognizing that the community that supports them all winter needs support. Breakfasts held in April allowed the Club to pass along $612 to Relay for Life for Cancer and $314.75 each to the Alzheimer Society of Lanark County and the Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington Alzheimer Society. The last breakfast held fittingly on May 4 as May is Melanoma Awareness Month, raised a very satisfying $1,043.50 for this worthy cause. “It’s all about giving back to the community” said Ruth Wark, Club President. “It would not be possible without the help of our regular volunteers and those who lend a hand when and where they

can. They deserve the credit for making it happen. There are so many people in our families and our community that are affected by these diseases.” Special thanks go out this week to the extra hands from the family of the late Denise Cooper. Denise spearheaded the breakfast for Malignant Melanoma last year to spread awareness as melanoma is one of the fastest growing cancers in Canada today. Skin cancer is highly curable if detected early, so please remember to practice sun-safety all year round and especially as we head into the summer months. Ruth expressed appreciation for the representatives from the Cancer and Alzheimer’s Societies who attended the breakfasts bringing displays and information and were available to answer questions. The Club will hold a breakfast and bake sale on Saturday, June 29th, 2013 as part of Canada Day celebrations in North Frontenac and Lanark Highlands townships.

Bird count Sunday

many events. There are many opportunities available and would be happy to discuss with you the various ways you can help. All volunteers receive a Heritage Mica Days volunteer T-shirt, free park entry for the

day that you are volunteering and a chance to learn more about the wonderful park and share your enthusiasm with park visitors. For those with a creative bent, there are opportunities this year to â&#x20AC;&#x153;get into characterâ&#x20AC;? by taking on a

costumed role in the Open House Silver Queen Mine Tours or Spirit Walks. Costumes and training will be provided. Visit under the Events Tab. Submitted by Beth Peterkin,


EMC News - This kind of fun is for the birds! Join park staff, experienced volunteer birders and the Friends of Murphys Point for their Annual Bird Count and fundraising continental breakfast on Sunday, May 19, rain or shine. Migrate over to the park and learn about local bird species on a hike with park naturalist Tobi Kiesewalter at the Lally Homestead (located about 2 kilometres past the main park entrance) at 7:30 a.m., then head back to the Park Store area where Friends volunteers will have coffee, muffins and fruit skewers ready for the low price of $1 each to help you refuel between 9:30 and 10:30 a.m. Experienced birders can take part in an earlier shift to help with the traditional bird count for the park. The blitz to beat current records begins at 5:30 a.m., and anyone interested in signing up for that activity should contact park interpreter Alida Lemieux at 613-267-5060, ext. 225. Early count participants will be paired up and sent to different parts of the park. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On a typical count we might see 70 to 80 different species,â&#x20AC;? Kiesewalter says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a wide variety of species here because there are so many different types of habitat, and we always hope to see some of our more notable birds and species at risk, such as the cerulean warbler and goldenwinged warbler.â&#x20AC;? The 7:30 a.m. hike is designed for bird enthusiasts of various skill levels who are seeking an opportunity to go on a hike and listen for birds and other forest sounds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great chance to introduce people to birding. They will learn how to spot various species and identify some calls.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a great time of year to come out and enjoy Murphys Point,â&#x20AC;? adds Stephanie Gray, Friends president. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The park is now open for the season and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a perfect time to see wildlife and spring wildflowers. As well, current Friends members, or those who become members that day, can receive free admittance to the park for this event and enjoy the facilities all day.â&#x20AC;? Members will also receive a coupon for a free ice cream cone at the Park Store, courtesy of the Friendsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Heritage Mica Days committee. Binoculars, sunscreen, insect repellent and a good pair of hiking boots or shoes are recommended for the bird count. Bring field guides if you have them. A valid Friendsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; membership card or a park day-use or camping permit is required to participate (either can be purchased at the event). For more information contact the park at 613-267-5060 or e-mail friendsofmurphyspointpark@yahoo. ca. Murphys Point is located on ElmGrove Road off of Rideau Ferry Road â&#x20AC;&#x201C; only a short drive from either Perth or Smiths Falls. Learn more about the Friends and the park at www.

Save a life with every step at June 9 LAWS walk in Carleton Place with money to the registration table, beginning at 9 a.m., upon arrival at the Carleton Place arena. Cheques must be made payable to the Lanark Animal Welfare Society. Tax receipts will be issued for donations over $10. “We are looking for volunteers,” said Taylor. “ People to deliver flyers, help with setting up and work the registration table.” Walk sponsorships are also available. For more information, email This is not just any walk in the park – it’s a fun day for the family and four-legged friends.


EMC Events – Don’t miss this year’s Walk Your Paws for LAWS! Top prizes, raffle, a barbecue and more! The Lanark Animal Welfare Society (LAWS) holds its second annual walk on Sunday, June 9. The fundraiser for the shelter takes place at the Carleton Place arena, 75 Neelin St., from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The rain or shine event offers two-kilometre (km) and five km walks. “The two-kilometre walk is good for families and older dogs,” said Liz Taylor, marketing and fundraising chair of the LAWS board. Last year’s event, which took place Sept. 23, raised an outstanding $13,000. All funds go directly to supporting the animals. “For this year’s walk we decided on June – hoping to catch everyone before the summer holiday season begins,” said Taylor. She would love to see area schools, veterinarian clinics and other businesses and organizations challenging each other. Walk festivities include water and refreshments available along the route for two-legged and fourlegged participants, prizes for top fundraisers, raffle, and the Carleton Place Lions Club will be running a barbecue. Registration fees are $20 for individuals or $40 for a family or team. “If participants can raise double the registration fee in pledges, we will waive the fee,” said Taylor.

About LAWS LAWS has been caring for abused, abandoned and lost animals for more than 35 years. It is one of two no kill shelters in all of Ontario. Located in Smiths Falls at 253 Glenview Rd., LAWS sees operating expenses of $75,000-$80,000 monthly, and approximately $40,000 is spent on veterinary care. Last year, due to a period of unprecedented animal intake, decreased donations and a lull in adoptions, the shelter was in danger of closing. “The shelter is in a better position now,” said Taylor. “People stepped up, there was an influx of donations. However, assistance is always needed,” she added. Spring and summer is always very busy at the shelter with an increase of cats and kittens and dogs in its care.

‘Music is life’ is a phrase many should live by Musical Musings STEVE TENNANT

neighbour buddy father’s garage where he always had the CHUM station on the radio and so I got to hear early rock and roll. I’d spend time there with no interest in the race cars being repaired or built but just enjoying this different style of music I wasn’t hearing at home. I remember finally getting my own radio for Christmas and being able to then listen to my own AM stations. CHUM and later CHUM-FM and CFNY becoming my FM stations of choice when that became available. I’d go to sleep listening. In high school I took music and started on the flute and with my early thumb-sucking overbite had the natural ombrosure to have been a decent player but at the time it wasn’t “masculine” enough to play a flute for this shy lad. So for my second time loving grade 9, I switched to euphonium (a smaller version of the tuba) until my capped tooth kept coming loose, getting stuck in the mouthpiece and it took too long to pound it out with a pencil so I again switched, this time to percussion. I played snare, bass drum, cymbals, triangle but not a drum set unfortunately. I could read music and count, which as a percussion player is critical when you have 132 bar rests. I still get tickled when I hear one of our pieces, Beethoven’s Egmont Overture. I loved being in the throngs of that large musical sound our school concert band created. We did band exchanges to Penetanguishene and London where we were always well received. I picked up bongos and played in a couple of musical groups (Luke’s Folk and Syzygy) who played folk rock church services throughout Ontario. Through this and school band I met people my age, (especially lovely gals) all over and loved jamming for hours with some wonderful guitar playing friends. In grade 9, music students were offered a student series with the Toronto Symphony and my friends who had a ticket would let me go with them. Two with passes would go into Massey Hall, one would come out with the two passes and two more would go in. We got many friends in

that way and as a result heard the Toronto Symphony when conductor, Seiji Ozawa started his memorable tenure with them. I still can feel the hairs on the back of my neck standing while hearing the late Canadian contralto Maureen Forrester sing at one of those concerts. Though opera and orchestral music have never been favourites, I know my wide variety of musical genre appreciation has been positively affected by these exposures. My younger brother Drew turned me on to lots of music, especially Little Feat and blues. I loved the Rolling Stones far more than the Beatles because of my blues love though I did enjoy George Harrison’s material when they broke up. As soon as I could get (or sneak) into concerts in the mid 60s and early 70s I did. I spent a lot of time on the “Red Rocket” – Toronto’s transit system, getting downtown and back – a bus, streetcar and subway ride each way at minimum. But what a great time to be able to see so many of the late greats in bars along Yonge St. or in Yorkville, the “hippie mecca” offering folk primarily. It was how I spent my weekends and many evenings. The drinking age dropping from 21 to 18 when I was 18 sure helped also as suddenly I could get into music bars legally. I’d just sit and be mesmerized by what they all had to offer. I remember going to the Victory Burlesque to hear the ‘bumps and grinds’ of the live band playing for the peelers...(OK, I peeked). What has been labelled the “Toronto Sound” became a favourite of mine, featuring R&B with the full sound of B3 organ, bass, guitar(s), drums, sometimes horns, and often backing vocals. Grant Smith & the Power, George Olliver & The Stone Children, Crowbar, Shawne & Jay Jackson and the Majestics, Ronnie Hawkins, Eugene Smith & the Imperials to name a few. I’d go to George’s Spaghetti House to hear Moe Koffman who led the house band with many other local jazz icons, and to the Sapphire Lounge to hear newpaper columnist, drummer, the late Paul Rimstead with sax great Jim Galloway and Ed Bickert on guitar. Le Coq D’or and the Colonial Tavern were favourites. In the 60s and 70s inexpensive live

music was everywhere. I loved the late Doug Riley’s band Dr. Music and would travel around to hear them wherever I could. I did a lot of this on my own, but when others joined me I would always take delight when watching a friend become enamoured and captivated by what they were experiencing. It’s that same delight I feel today when I watch someone experience a house concert’s intimacy with the musicians for the first time. Growing up, (assuming I now have) I was never a skirt-chaser. Rather, I hunted down live music wherever I could. I just happened to meet great people through it. I got to know musicians and understand their lives. I’d visit relatives as a kid up in Wiarton and my cousin’s would take me to see Gordie Tapp (who had a cottage in the area) and Tommy Hunter shows at the arena. It was my cousins who exposed me to country music and, as a ballad lover, I enjoyed many crossover hits of the era. (It was Keith Glass that got me listening to country music when we met in Perth and I have developed a whole new listening genre with some incredible players, thanks to him). In high school, our music teacher was away ill for a couple of months and the replacement was a young man who, at 29, had his Masters in Music & Theory from a Texas university. We became friends and he finished filling in at our school to become the musical director and sing the Jesus part in the Toronto version of Jesus Christ Superstar which performed once only at Varsity Stadium, which I attended. I skipped a lot of high school and attended the practices and met the who’s who of the Toronto music scene at the time. The late Bob McBride of Lighthouse I especially remember. My brother went on to work with Charity Brown, Dominic Troiano, Bruce Cockburn, Murray McLauchlan so I was able to become acquainted with the background scene and musicians as just “people” rather than “icons”. When any of us go out to be entertained we want to be transported somewhere else... “take my mind elsewhere,” away from our daily toils. However the entertainment does it, through film, music, dance, theatre, it’s most successful when we are taken to a “different place”. I survived 40 years of social work by being able to get away through live music, hearing stories about why songs were written, the storyline of the “takes me away” for awhile. It’s what has kept me going

and I’m blessed to now be in an area where live music is abundant, with great local players and local events without having to always travel to big cities to find my live music “fix”.

Whatever the reason, for me “Music is Life, the rest is just details” and I’m happy just to be listenin’... wherever it is. Support live music everywhere.


EMC Lifestyle – I often wear a t-shirt that says “Life is Music. The rest is just details.” Though I’m not a musician, this phrase seems to best describe my life and has for as long as I can remember. In a recent eulogy for a fellow music lover, I quoted this phrase and later gave pause to reflect back on my own life and come up with some rationale as to possibly why music has always been so important for me. We are all a product of our experiences so here’s what I’ve come up with so far... From my earliest memories, I was raised in west end Toronto in a home where there was almost always music on, often just the radio (CFRB – no country music) but later LPs of show tunes like ‘Mary Poppins’ or ‘Sound of Music’ were often on. We were raised in the United Church and I was in the junior choir from an early age. I had a few solos early on and, though I can’t remember the songs, I do remember the pride I had at being able to be recognized for my musical offerings. I loved singing hymns and listening to the choirs. My mother stills laughs when she tells the story of finding me in the back yard, standing on top of our wooden garbage can box at age three or four, singing hymns from memory with very contorted wordings for the rest of the garden to enjoy. I remember visiting relatives and going to their rural churches and recognizing the quality of our home church’s choir, after hearing theirs. My dad went to a couple of men’s conferences through the church and would bring back powerful recordings of these, often in the hundred’s of men, all singing in unison, spirituals or stirring hymns. I loved to listen. We had a piano and my dad could play ‘by ear’ and did often. He had a few favourites he’d figured out and would regularly go through his repertoire. I took lessons for a few years but can honestly say, I didn’t ever really enjoy it enough to work at it. I too developed a repertoire of about seven songs I could sit down at a party or pub and play but in honesty, I’d rather listen. One year, in early public school I pretended I played the recorder in our school band by not blowing but just moving my fingers. I have always prided myself in my honesty and though I didn’t ever like to practice, I did love sitting in the middle of all that sound of the others playing music around me, so that was the pay off for my deception. I loved to listen. I remember loving to visit my

LAWS says thanks to Pet Valu, Natural Pet Foods for being adoption satellite sites By LORI CLARKSON

EMC Lifestyle – The end of April marks one year since LAWS cats started to be adopted out at the Pet Valu locations in Almonte, Carleton Place, Kemptville, Perth, and Smiths Falls. When Natural Pet Foods in Carleton Place joined into the project, LAWS gained six adoption satellite sites that have helped to find forever homes for well over 100 cats in the past year. A huge thank you goes out to all the stores who are mately nine-month-old female cat helping with this essential service. who was a stray, but is so very affectionate and playful that she was given this odd name. Sweetpea loves to play with a ball and feathers and purrs out loud when you give her a belly rub. She’s ready to go to a forever home, as sitting in a small cage is not her favourite thing.

No real advantage between manual shifts and automatics EMC Lifestyle – “Brian, my wife and I are firm believers in manual shifts v. automatics. We feel there is better road awareness due to having to up shift for moving off and downshift for slowing, plus moving of the right hand and clutch keep us more alert than (maybe preoccupied) automatic drivers. Are there any statistics on relative accident rates with manuals vs. automatics for similar vehicles? Intuitively, we believe that a manual should have a substantial advantage due to the ‘road feel’ and increased attention required. Just curious! If there is a known accident rate advantage for manuals, do you know of any insurance companies which give a discount?” Peter Thanks for the question. The Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MOT) stats on collisions don’t break down to vehicle equipment level and if you check their latest report (log onto and enter ORSAR in the search window) you’ll find the overwhelming majority of collisions were labeled as being caused by ‘no apparent defect’ which means in my humble opinion, driver error. I assume if transmission type did mark a substantive trend, it would be included that in the report. While I too prefer manual transmissions, when it comes to

Car Counsellor BRIAN TURNER

vehicle safety, we are basically victims of the lowest common denominator and that speaks to a significant percentage of drivers who couldn’t handle manual transmissions or wouldn’t be bothered to learn more about them, (so they and subsequently we, are safer if those drivers are using automatics). In a panic stop or swerve with a manual transmission, many drivers may forget to use their shifter unless they’ve taken a proper driving course (which should be mandatory and regular), and therefore would either clutch-in and brake (thereby getting no advantage from engine braking) or simply brake without clutching-in and let the engine stall. In the case of the latter, a manual transmission wouldn’t provide an improvement to safety. I’ve done some research on insurance companies before with regards to pricing and don’t know of any who would provide a discount for having a manual transmission

EMC Business – We know that finding as well as keeping a summer job can be a challenge for certain young people. In particular, the realities of living in a more rural area can pose serious difficulties when it comes to securing transportation to and from a work site. That’s why the Employment and Education Centre (EEC), in partnership with CSE Consulting, is offering a special workshop called Working at Home For Students in Kemptville, Prescott and Brockville later this month. The Kemptville workshop will be held at the G. Howard Ferguson Forestry Station, on Thursday, May 23 at 3 p.m.; CSE Consulting (191 King St. E. in Prescott) on Monday, May 27 at 3 p.m. and at the EEC (105 Strowger Blvd. in Brockville) on Tuesday, May 28 at 3 p.m. EEC Manager of Special Projects Anne-Marie Rolfe indicates much of the information contained in the workshop has been learned through the delivery of another recent EEC Workshop, Legitimate Opportunities to Work From Home, which has proven to be the most popular new workshop offered at the agency within the past year. “Working from home presents a unique fit and opportunity for young people who, due to transportation or other issues, might not be able to hold a regular summer job,” Rolfe explains. “This workshop will provide the tools for young people to navigate through the online job universe and since the jobs are done via computer they can continue them when back at school.” The workshop will provide young people with a unique opportunity to find out more about employers looking for employees to work remotely as well as the knowledge to help separate legitimate work-from-home opportunities from scams. The workshops are free but registration is requested. Go to to register online for the workshop in the community closest to where you live or email Annemarie@ for more information. If you are interested in a regular summer job, why not register with EEC’s Summer Jobs Service? Call 613-498-2111 or email to get information or to register as a student or employer.

Big Brothers Big Sisters annual 3M Golf for the Kids May 25 at Mapleview them that they are valued, and that they possess the strength to overcome the obstacles they will undoubtedly face as they grow older. Mentoring also plays an important role in the future direction a child will decide to take later on in life, paving the way to a future full of possibilities. Children who have been in mentoring programs see real, positive change. The children involved with Big Brothers Big Sisters go on to graduate from high school at a rate of 20 per cent higher than the national average. Seventy-eight per cent of those children who came from a social assistance background no longer rely on this form of income and a disproportionately high number of former Littles graduate from college or university compared to others in their age group. On the other hand, children who are denied the benefit of a positive role model are children who will continue to be deemed “at risk”, and not children “on the brink of success”. Supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters can have big results. It can be as simple as a game of golf. For more information about the tournament, or about other ways to get involved with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lanark County, please call 613-283-0570 or visit their website at

EMC Events – A month away from their annual 3M Golf for the Kids Tournament, Big Brothers Big Sisters has already sold half the team spots! Mapleview Golf & Country Club in Perth will be the location for the annual golf tournament on May 25 to raise funds for local mentoring programs. 3M is once again the title sponsor, supporting the local agency and their goal of ensuring that “every child in Lanark County that needs a mentor has a mentor”. The fun-filled day is a shot gun start and the $75 registration fee includes a continental breakfast, barbecue lunch, a cart and 18 holes. There is a chance to win $10,000 in cash, and the now famous silent auction boasts West Jet tickets, among other treasures! Sponsorships help increase the bottom line for the agency, and there are many options available, including hole sponsors, food sponsors, and more. It is great visibility for local businesses, and great support for an agency helping kids right here at home. Mentoring programs are about prevention and building resilience.

THE EMC - 51 - Thursday, May 16, 2013


EMC Lifestyle - Kem Jones lives today in Tottenham, Ontario. While still a teenager in Ottawa in 1962, a friend of his wanted to buy the radio out of an old car. The price was $25 but there was a catch. He could have the radio for that price as long as he agreed to take away the car it was mounted in. And so by that very unusual deal, he became the somewhat unwilling owner of a 1939 Mercury convertible. Kem later bought the car from his friend. The car had seen better days. A previous owner had cut some metal off the fenders, perhaps in an attempt to make the car look capable of more speed. Everything that could be wrong with the car was wrong, and yet that same Kem Jones still owns that same car and it is now fully restored. He can look back on over 50 years of ownership every time he takes it out for a spin. In the early days, when he served as a police officer in Metropolitan Toronto, Kem attempted an amateur restoration but was never satisfied with the result. Finally, in the 1990s, he took the car to John Hogg in London, Ontario. John was a very skilled body man and welcomed the opportunity of making Kemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s car like new again. The body came off the chassis and everything was stripped down to bare metal. None of the body parts were interchangeable with a â&#x20AC;&#x2122;39 Ford, making the restoration that much more challenging. New rocker panels had to be fabricated and installed, and John made an extra set for his own 1939 Mercury convertible, a Florida car which is now

brighter, everything is larger than life, and somehow more real than reality. Each shot and scene becomes this dazzling piece of moving art. Yet the story is never lost in all the wonder and spectacle. In fact everything including the music and the 3-D effects are carefully crafted to enhance and highlight each performance, each line and each element of the story. Tobey Maguire is a remarkable talent. His sensitivity and range of emotions gives the story its heart and its soul. Carey Mulligan is mesmerizing. Her beauty, her grace, her smile and that touch of sadness that lingers in her eyes wrenches your heart. This is the performance of her career. Tom Buchanan is the film’s villain. He’s the guy you want to hate. He’s the guy you want to see bested by Gatsby. Joel Edgerton commits himself both body and soul to the role. In so many ways this is Leonardo DiCaprio’s film. He steps into the role of Gatsby and he commands your attention. Just as all the other characters in the story are drawn to him so is the audience. His charm and his charisma are magnetic. His confidence and determination are inspiring. It’s a great performance. Baz Luhrmann has once again used his unique vision to create a spellbinding masterpiece. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

MOVIE: The Great Gatsby STARRING: Leonardo DiCaprio, Toby Maguire, Carey Mulligan, and Joel Edgerton DIRECTOR: Baz Luhrmann RATING: PG EMC Entertainment - Baz Luhrmann takes us into a world of excess, greed, passion and desire. He takes us into F. Scott Fitzgerald’s America during the roaring twenties, and into the heart of his tragic romance. Luhrmann takes us into The Great Gatsby. Nick Carraway (Toby Maguire) is our storyteller. He’s Daisy’s (Carey Mulligan) cousin, and an innocent who has been drawn into a world for which he is utterly unprepared. It’s a world of wealth and power and it sweeps him away. Daisy is the beautiful innocent who has long since lost her innocence, but whose beauty is no less diminished. She has found herself in a loveless marriage to Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton). Tom is one of the wealthy elite, but he struggles with no longer being the star athlete and big man on campus. At the centre of their universe, like a blazing sun, is J. Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio). He is a man of unimaginable wealth and power, but also of secrets. No one seems to truly know who he is or where his wealth comes from – though he does begin to confide in Nick. Nick soon learns all of Gatsby’s secrets, but the biggest one of all is Gatsby’s love for Daisy. All that Gatsby does or has done has been to win her heart. Nothing else matters to Gatsby. Daisy is the last piece that will finally make his life complete. The Great Gatsby is a truly astounding film. Baz Luhrmann has an incredible sense of style and a distinctive vision, and the will to make them real. Gatsby had a surreal quality to it. Colours are

SF Horticultural Society seeks Garden of the Month nominations By CHARLES McLENAGHAN

EMC Lifestyle – The next meeting of the Smiths Falls Horticultural Society (SFHS) will be on May 21 at 7:15 p.m. at the Smiths Falls Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 95. Everyone is welcome so please come and join us or bring a friend. There is a small charge for non-members. The purpose of our society is to promote horticulture in our community through a friendly atmosphere. Each month our guest speakers are usually inundated with questions, which indicates the level of interest they generate. Our guest this month is Marilyn Light, an honorary member of the Ottawa Horticultural Society since 2003. Marilyn has been gardening from an early age. She has lived and taught in Barbados. She has a passion for growing from seed as well as the study and development of her own orchid hybrids. She has received many awards, coauthored books and is also a member of most horticultural societies and garden clubs in the Ottawa area. This is bound to be a fascinating presentation. Our photo contest winners “Trees in Blossom” for April were: Anneke Phillips, first, Marcia Phillips, second and Aline Hicks, third. The theme for June

Smiths Falls Horticultural Society is “Floral Landscape”. Please bring your ‘photos to share with the group and participate in our people’s choice contest. With the quick burst in summer we hope to have lots of participation in the May flower show. This is a judged event with points going towards the annual awards for best entries. Please check the yearbook for the classes in both Division I, Horticultural Specimens and Division II, Design, which for 2013 is “Say it in Song”. All exhibits must be placed by 7 p.m. We are seeking nominations for our Garden of the Month contest commencing this month. Gardens must be in town and visible from the street. No garden can win in 2 consecutive months. Please submit your nominations by phone to 613267-4046 or to the SFHS web site as shown below. There is a members’ only garden tour scheduled for June 22. We have members who have volunteered to open their gardens for this tour. If anyone

wishes to carpool we are meeting at the Walmart parking lot at 9 a.m. There will be a potluck of snacks at our last stop so think of something you would like to bring. Our trips for this year have been arranged and we encourage members to sign up at this meeting. First up is July 20, Whitehouse Perennials and Rockwall Gardens, on Aug. 24, Kingston Farmers’ Market, Seeds of Diversity (Nunnery) and Wendy’s Mobile market, and finally Sept. 21, Eagle Point Winery. It is with great sadness that we announce that Larry Armstrong passed away on April14. Larry was an inspiration to all of us. He was dedicated to our society serving as a director for many years. We will all miss him. Please contact our current president Lorna at 283-0549 for any information you require about your own local horticultural society. Also visit our web site at: ( site.php/smithsfalls).
