They were painted and dressed individually at the YAK headquarters prior to the event. Zombies came to Perth from as far away as Carleton Place and Smiths Falls.

Perth cop urges lobbying against gambling, liquor rules By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

‘FALL’ BACK Daylight Saving Time comes to an end this weekend. Don’t forget to turn your clocks back one hour when you go to bed Saturday night. While you’re at it, why not also check the batteries in your smoke alarms.

EMC News – The executive director of the county’s addiction services is calling on his fellow health care workers not to vote Progressive Conservative in the next provincial election. With Queen’s Park in a state of limbo following last month’s prorogation, there is speculation that a spring election could follow the election of a new Liberal leader and premier at the end of January. However, David North of Tri County Addiction Services (TriCAS) already knows how he is voting. “Don’t vote for the (Progressive) Conservatives,” North said, during a panel discussion at the latest Municipal Drug Strategy networking day

held in Beckwith Township Friday, Oct. 26. “You will cancel your own well-being.” North added that he believes that “we may have a government change in the near future,” and that “the money will change with the system of belief in power.” At the same meeting, Insp. Glen Dewey of the Perth Police Service, also spoke his mind, urging fellow attendees to lobby the provincial government on matters like relaxed gambling rules and regulations and liquor rules. Regardless of which party has been in office, “what I’ve seen the government do is… they’ve relaxed regulations,” said Dewey, who noted that he is nearing retirement after more than 30 years as a police officer, and so he was speaking a little more freely than

usual. After the bar closing hours were extended by an hour, for example, “police officers saw an increase in domestic violence,” Dewey said. “Enough is enough,” Dewey added. “What they (the provincial government) want to do is increase revenue. We, as an MDS (Municipal Drug Strategy) Network, need to say no. It’s getting out of hand.” Dewey further predicted that, long after he has hung up his badge, “within five, 10 years, Mac’s Milk will be selling beer. It’s coming folks.” The panel discussion had also been asked by The Perth Courier EMC whether budget cuts announced for both campuses of the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital – with six beds slated to be closed at

each facility, and early retirement and “voluntary exit” packages being offered to staff – would impact the province’s 10-year “Open Minds, Healthy Hearts” program for comprehensive mental health, and whether the funding for that program would continue on in light of the economic climate and a possible change in government at Queen’s Park. “The expectation is that these are long term commitments,” said Anne Moloney, a community services consultant with the Ontario Ministry of Children and Youth Services, during the presentation. “We are relieved that there was funding that came this year,” agreed Nicki Collins, executive director of Open Doors for Lanark Children and Youth at the meeting.

REALTOR OF THE WEEK Connections Realty Inc. ®

Marcia Gibson, regional manager for the east region for the Ottawa-based Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, said that the cutbacks at the hospital need not necessarily be seen in a negative light. “Nobody wants to be in the hospital,” said Gibson, adding that the emphasis in health care today is to have patients at home recovering, where appropriate, and so that patients who are at home, “feel supported and feel they are getting what they need.” “We are hopeful that the funding will stay,” said Heather Skanes, assistant director of client services at the Champlain CCAC (Community Care Access Centre) in Ottawa. “The community is where health care dollars should live.”

Mainstreets topic of first ever symposium why Beckwith Street was built at such a large width. Bob Cheetham, manager of economic development for the Town of Smiths Falls asked Nasmith what benefits she felt there were to being in a heritage district and how to sell the idea. “You bread is going to be buttered with heritage,” she said. “The word to underline is conservation.” In terms of gaining buy in from local businesses and property owners, she said, “The first people who make that investment really opens the eyes of other people.”

EMC Lifestyle – Focusing in its first year on “Our Mainstreets” the Rural Heritage Preservation Symposium in Smiths Falls has been deemed a success. Put together by the Smiths Falls Municipal Heritage Committee, the Oct. 26 all day event attracted a small crowd to the Station Theatre. Exploring the topic of mainstreets, were three special guest speakers. The first was Ken Doherty, director of the community services department for the City of Peterborough who spoke on “Peterborough: A sense of place.” Next up was Jim Mountain, cultural developer with the City of Ottawa, on the topic of “Revitalizing Saskatchewan’s Mainstreet Program”. The final presentation of the day came from Catherine Nasmith, of Catherine Nasmith Architect. Her presentation was entitled “Mainstreets as Old Growth Forests.” In introducing Nasmith, town councillor Lorraine Allen explained, she is the past president of the Architectural Conservancy of Ontario, the founder of the Doors Open program in Canada and she has received the Queen’s Jubilee Medal for Ontario heritage works, among many other accomplishments. Mainstreets have the ability to decline and to regenerate, she explained. Her journey into the subject began 30 years ago. Ever since, she has been “watching” and feels, “when people start to recognize the potential of these places then they will stop treating them as disposable.” Mainstreets go through several states, from decline to regeneration and renewal. As a graduate in Chatham, in 1978, the grad students undertook a study of the downtown core. Researching the history of

the street and each of its buildings. They discovered the street had a bend, as the back faced the river – where goods had in the past been loaded. “People lived and worked in this compact space. It adds up to something very, very different from our current ideas of shopping,” she commented. She pointed to old hotels within mainstreets as a “challenge”. “Often these buildings people don’t want to stay in hotels on the mainstreet,” she said. Pointing to a few examples of success, she explained these locations had turned old hotels into community hubs. For example, the Gladstone Hotel in Toronto. A large grand old building, it was built in 1889. It is now home to ground floor restaurants, galleries and up top, a hotel. Perfect definitions of what she refers to as a “steady state” for mainstreets, she points to the

block on their mainstreet, as a “clear cut”. Showing a picture of the scene, whereby the block was demolished, she commented, “Everything is wrong with this picture.” When it came time for audience questions, the first question asked was at what point did Nasmith feel Smiths Falls was at in

communities of Meaford and Hanover. Meaford is located in Grey County, in southern Ontario. She describes its mainstreet as a little too small for big highway commercial development around it. The buildings, she says, are in good repair and occupied by businesses. The second location, she describes is in a steady state is Hanover, also in Grey County. Calling it a farming community, she says it is small and hasn’t attracted a lot of retail businesses. “People really like the mainstreet’s merchants,” she commented. “There is a community effort to stay alive.” And she joked, the real test for a successful mainstreet is, “if there is a grocery store and a liquor store on the main street they’re in good shape.” While on the opposite side of the coin, referring to the City of Brantford’s move to demolish an entire

the cycle. “Steady state,” she answered. “You could benefit from more attention to preservation. There’s a lot to hang your hat on. Great building stock there.” Pointing to the width of Smiths Falls’ mainstreet, Beckwith Street, as something of interest. She feels the town should explore

Broomball gets $50,000 boost from development program brier.dodge@metroland.com

EMC News - Members of the 2012 World Broomball Championship organizing committee were at Parliament Hill last Wednesday to officially accept $50,000 in funding from MPs Scott Reid and Cheryl Gallant. The funding was provided in advance as the championship, at that time was just around the corner with an Oct. 29 kick-off. Committee members Gary Dalgity, Ruth Brown, George Brown, Allan Reid and Glenn Arthur were able to officially thank the MPs and present them with their own broomball sticks while at the hill. The funding came from the Eastern Ontario Development Program. As the event is be-

ing held in Beckwith, Carleton Place, Mississippi Mills and Arnprior, it falls into both Gallant and Reid’s ridings. Due to this cross-over, both MPs were able to apply for $25,000 in funding, with a total of $50,000 being given. Arthur said that the funds were earmarked for advertising, officiating and facility costs for the tournament. Gallant said even though the funding has already been given, both herself and Reid wanted to officially celebrate the funding with the committee. “It’s finally coming to fruition,” Arthur said. “Four communities coming together. And not only the organizing committee, but minor sports groups in each town.” Minor sports groups have

given up regular ice time in order to give facilities in each of the four communities up for the tournament. He said it has taken a lot of cooperation to pull the tournament and facilities together. “It’s been a job and a half,” Arthur said. Reid said it was beneficial that the tournament was spread over two ridings, as far as funding was concerned. “This is a good example of something where you have communities that cross over the jurisdictional boundaries,” he said.

Flu shot now available in Lanark, Leeds and Grenville By TIFFANY LEPACK tlepack@perfprint.ca

EMC News – Get your flu shot. That is the message from the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit. Influenza is a preventable illness that can be very dangerous to some individuals. Margaret Hendriks, RN, BScN, manager, department of community Health Protection encourages everyone to get their flu shot. “It’s recommended that everyone get the vaccine unless advised by your doctor due to a current medical condition,” said Hendriks. “I hope everyone gets out and gets the flu shot. Prevention is important, why would you not want to prevent something that is preventable.” According to the health unit influenza is extremely contagious and can spread rapidly from person to person. It is important for individuals to protect them-

selves as well as others in the community. Some important tips to protect yourself from influenza include: Get a flu shot, wash your hands, use hand sanitizer, keep frequently touched hard surfaces clean and disinfected, cover your cough, and stay home when you are sick. “When people get influenza it is very challenging because it is different than a common cold, it lasts longer and there are a lot of complications,” said Hendriks. “It is more problematic than other diseases and it takes away from your family. It affects them too.” The flu vaccine is safe and effective, and getting it early helps you and people around you stay healthy. The flu can lead to serious health problems, and those most at risk are the elderly, young children, pregnant women and people with weakened immune systems. “We’re making it easier

you get your flu shot,” said Hendriks. “It takes 24 to 48 hours for the flu shot to take affect and I always tell people that the protection does not start right away.” After receiving a flu shot some people may have a mild fever, feel tired, or have muscle aches - this is considered a normal reaction to having a vaccination. It is not the flu. Hendriks notes there are currently no cases of influenza reported in Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit. “Influenza was very low in the province last year,” said Hendriks. She also notes that there is enough vaccine for everyone. “First it is distributed to the long care term facilities, the hospitals and doctors offices and then to the community clinics,” said Hendriks. “They are immunizing the very vulnerable population first.” Flu season is from October/November to March/

April. It also peaks in late Spring. Protect yourself by getting immunized at a local flu clinic. There are 17 community clinics being held this year from Nov. 1 to Dec. 13 in 14 different communities. For more information about the flu and for a listing of free flu shot community clinics, contact the Health Unit at 1-800-6605853 or (613)-345-5685 or visit the web site at www. healthunit.org/clinics or like the Health Unit on Facebook for important up-

dates. Quick facts: • The flu shot is offered free of charge to everyone six months of age and older who lives, works or attends school in Ontario. • People with the flu may be contagious even before symptoms appear and up to seven days after becoming sick. • It is impossible to get the flu from the flu shot.

EMC News - The War Amps begins its 2012 address label mailing to Ontario residents this week with the theme, The Legacy Continues. Shannon, a graduate of the War Amps child amputee program (CHAMP), describes how she became a part of this legacy at the age of 12 after losing her leg to cancer. “The War Amps was recommended to my family because they could provide financial assistance with artificial limbs, but little did I know there was so much more to it than that,” Shannon said. Through Operation Legacy, Shannon, along with other Champs, passes on the war amputees’ remembrance message to the younger generation. It was these same war amputees who realized many years ago that there was a need to assist Canadian children who were born missing limbs, or lost them due to accidents or medical causes. Sent as a thank you to supporters of the War Amps key tag service, address labels are not just for envelopes. They can be used to identify items like books and for filling out name and address information on forms. The War Amps receives no government grants. Its programs are possible solely through public support of the key tag and address label service. For more information, or to order address labels, visit waramps.ca or call toll-free 1 800 250-3030.

than ever to get your free flu shot by offering it at participating pharmacies, as well as doctors’ offices and community clinics. Getting immunized against the flu is the most effective way to stay healthy during this flu season – that’s why I’m getting my flu shot early, protecting myself and those around me,” said Deb Matthews, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care. Contrary to what some people may think the flu vaccine does not contain live virus therefore it can’t give you the flu. Most people will have no reaction to having a flu vaccine while some report having tenderness at the injection site for a few days. Hendriks reminds people that the protection is not immediate and some people may get sick after the shot, but it is not the flu. “What happens is someone may already be incubating a respiratory infection, you could be affected up to two weeks before

The board wanted to bring back what was a fun evening,” Evoy noted. “Taking a break from the social for a few years has allowed us to plan an even bigger and better

event.” The event is really two pronged for the association, the first goal of course to raise funds; the second goal is to raise awareness. “The whole idea is to have a social, casual get together,” Evoy emphasized. “It is just a fun evening. You can meet people and see what’s going on around town, and see the museum. All while raising funds for an important cause.” Crime Stoppers receives no funding period, funding comes from fundraisers and the sale of Nevada tickets. Monthly costs include $200-$300 for the 1-800 phone line coupled with the answering service expenses. The service offers anyone with information to a local crime a way to provide

it to the police without being identified. It is operated with the support of a Smiths Falls Police co-ordinator who takes the calls and a team of dedicated volunteers whom together find ways to support the ongoing operational costs of the system. The Crime Stoppers service operates entirely through donations. For tickets, contact any Smiths Falls and District Crime Stoppers board member or call Evoy at 613-2832444, tickets can also be purchased at Impression Printing, Smiths Falls or at the Smiths Falls Chamber of Commerce office. Locally Crime Stoppers began in the summer of 1990 as a satellite to the Kingston and District Crime Stoppers, however in September of 1992, things changed. That

year, Smiths Falls formed its own program independent of Kingston, which continues to serve Smiths Falls and immediate area. Crime Stoppers is a nonprofit program, operated by a board of directors. The board features members of the local community who are responsible for fundraising, advertisement, payment of rewards and all other functions of the local association. Crime Stoppers works closely with the police and supplies information from callers to the local department to assist in the solving of crimes. Callers providing information leading to arrests are eligible for rewards up to $2,000. Those wishing to provide a tip may call 1-800-222-TIPS

(8477) and know they will remain anonymous. No names are asked, no attempts are made to trace the call or identify the caller, and the Crime Stoppers phones do not have call display. Calls are answered 24 hours a day. When calling in the caller is given a code number with which they will identify themselves in any future calls. Those providing tips are given a date to call Crime Stoppers back. They will be updated on the status of the investigation, perhaps asked for more information, or if the tip has resulted in an arrest, or recovery of property or drugs, the caller will be guided through the procedure of collecting their reward.

Tickets on sale now for Camelot by Smiths Falls Community Theatre variations, the wizard Merlin (there are three in this version) and of course the Knights. Yes, they are all there but… the story is about to be told just a little differently than the one you know. You might have already guessed that by the “three” Merlins. Ben Crocker’s Camelot the Panto will introduce you to several other exciting characters, such as a dancing bear (Caren MacNevin) and her nurse, Connie (Mike Adams), just to mention a few because we wouldn’t want to

give away all the secrets – you need to come to the show for that. For anyone who hasn’t attended a Pantomime, it is a family event extraordinaire, where the audience participates by cheering the good guys, booing the evil guys and joining in for fun sing songs. Last year’s Panto, Cinderella, played to sold out houses so you need to get your tickets early so as not to be disappointed. They went on sale beginning Nov. 1, at Special Greetings, 8 Russell St., Smiths Falls (cash only), on

line at smithsfallstheatre.com (Paypal/Visa/Mastercard), by phone - 613-283-0300 (Visa/Mastercard) or subject to availability, at the door half hour before performance

Stay safe this hunting season

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Efforts to eradicate polio must continue DEAR EDITOR: Humanity is about to eradicate polio after three decades of continuous efforts to immunize the children of the world. Thanks to the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI), the total number of polio cases decreased from 350,000 in 1988 to 650 in 2011, and to only a little more than 100 since the beginning of 2012. Polio resurgence around the world after so many years of effort would be disastrous. We would probably then lose forever

the chance to eradicate the disease. Canada has played an important role in the polio eradication over the last decade, being the fifth largest donor to GPEI. I do wish the Harper government will reverse its decision to cut in this important health initiative and will maintain its $35 million contribution per year to the GPEI until polio eradication is achieved. Bruno Marquis Gatineau QC

EMC Editorial - Tis vacation season for hunters out there – these are the men and women who count the days until their particular hunting season opens. These are the men and women who strategize how to go about landing their targets - whatever targets they may be. Geese, duck, deer, moose. The fall is a busy season. With this busy season however, there comes with it several issues. The Canada Safety Council reported in October alone, between Oct. 1 and 17, there were four deaths across Canada involving firearms. One each in Ontario, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and British Columbia. There was an additional incident in B.C., however it was not fatal. While one sole reason for the incidents can’t be identified, the Canada Safety Council is suggesting some precautions and training to prevent unnecessary deaths during this hunting season. A season meant to be enjoyed by those who call it a hobby. Each area may have different regulations, and dates for when hunting opens for various seasons, however the tips provided by the council can be taken as universal. They suggest taking a Canadian Firearms Safety Course, to wear “blaze” orange so as to be easily visible to others out hunting, keep firearm unloaded and locked when traveling to and from one’s hunting areas. Don’t hunt in populated areas or where several hunters may already be present. Other tips suggest not hunting when conditions are impaired by fog, or lack of daylight; to never hunt while impaired - either by lack of sleep, or by substances such as drugs or alcohol; to rely on sight and not sound; to keep one’s focus, and keep one’s finger off of the trigger until ready to shoot. There are many other tips which can be read by visiting the Canada Safety Council site (canadasafetycouncil. org), but above all most tips would fall under the common sense category. Exercise caution, and be safe so you can enjoy your hobby this year.

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

entire of Renfrew County. One year the Lapointe cousins were again with us well into the fall, and Father said he doubted very much if Uncle Herby had any intention of taking them back to Montreal before the spring thaw! Ronny was a force to be reckoned with, while his younger brother Terry was as meek as a mouse. And any time Uncle Herby and Aunt Helen could send the boys out to the farm at Northcote, they did. It didn’t matter if it was the middle of the winter, or during the dead heat of the summer, we never knew when to expect the two cousins.

I was always thrilled when they came to stay. They added much to our quiet life out there on the farm, and I loved when the cousins were with us, even though Ronny was constantly in trouble, if not at home, at the Northcote School. Back then it didn’t seem to matter where you came from, or why you were in the school. If you were of school age, you just went. Terry was too young, even for Primer book, so he stayed home with Mother. But Ronny, close to my age, made the three and half mile trek with the rest of us. All that was needed was an extra bag of lunch. Well, Ronny hated having his ears examined every morning. He didn’t complain about the neck, but for some reason he went through a routine that never varied when Mother was ready for her examination. He would bend his head onto his shoulder as far as it would go,

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

even bend his head to his shoulder when the other ear was being washed. Something was up with Ronny, I could tell. He was deep in thought. The next morning, we all lined up for the usual examination. Mother thought, since Audrey was in Senior Fourth, she didn’t have to have her ears and neck examined. She was old enough and quite capable of looking after her own cleanliness. I couldn’t wait until I reached that magic age. Well, it was Ronny’s turn. He stood ramrod straight. Again, very unusual for Ronny. When Mother bent to have a look, she got close to his ears and then hauled him over to the window so she could get a better view. “Ronny Lapointe! What have you got in your ears?” Ronny looked up at Mother and said, “Aunty, you said

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

EMC Lifestyle - Nov. 4-10 has by designated as Crime Prevention Week by the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police. As part of this initiative to prevent crime the following information has been released. The following facts and tips are aimed at heightening awareness about what you can do to protect yourself, your children and your home or vehicle from crime. Protecting yourself: • Do not leave keys hidden in obvious places outside. • When in public, always be aware of your surroundings. Be mindful of people loitering or acting suspiciously. • If you live alone, use only first initials with surname on mailboxes, directories, etc. • Arrange a system so that someone has a key to your home and is aware of your whereabouts at all times, especially if you live alone. Protecting dren:

your

chil-

• Remind your children: To tell you where they are at all times. Tell them, their schools, their daycare provider, etc., where to reach you in an emergency; • To go directly to a ca-

shier or information booth if they become separated from you in a public area; • If they are home alone, not to answer the door, or if on the phone, not to say they are alone. Protecting your home and vehicle: • Keep a lived-in look when you are away. Have mail, newspapers, etc., picked up, lawns cut or snow removed. • Insure your home and contents, and store valuables in a safety deposit box. Install smoke alarms and test monthly. Plan and practice an escape route with all household members. • Don’t put your name or address on your house or vehicle keys, and keep them on separate rings. • Always check the interior and under the vehicle before entering, especially at night. • It’s good practice in two-door vehicles to move the front seat forward when the vehicle is unoccupied. • If you are going to be away overnight or for extended periods of time, use automatic timers to turn lights on and off in various parts of the house at night.

Council participation icing on the cake for hay fundraiser By CHRIS MUST

EMC News - Getting Lanark County councillors involved is the “icing on the cake� for organizers of the Nov. 3 Lanark Hay East. Gordon Patterson, one of the organizers of the benefit dance - which will raise funds to help pay the cost of transporting hay to the county to feed local livestock - issued a challenge to councillors at their Oct. 24 meeting. “What I propose to do tonight is to present a challenge to all you councillors,� said Patterson. “I propose that you each go back to your municipality, and find a good cook to bake a cake representing your municipality. That’s eight cakes. We’ll auction

them off.� Patterson said he would like to see one cake from each of the local municipalities in the county: the Town of Perth, Town of Carleton Place, Town of Mississippi Mills, and townships of Beckwith, Drummond/North Elmsley, Lanark Highlands, Montague, and Tay Valley. He hopes several thousand dollars can be raised from the cake auction. “It’s kind of hard to say ‘no’,� said Lanark County Warden John Gemmell, adding, “I’d bake the cake myself, but for liability reasons, I won’t.� Patterson explained to council that livestock producers in Lanark lack sufficient feed for their animals in the wake of

this summer’s prolonged drought. Hay normally used to feed them during the winter has already been used up. Plans are in place to bring hay for the winter from western Canada through a project initiated by the Saskatchewan Unit of the Mennonite Disaster Service. A shipment of hay from the west was delivered to a farm near Cobden on Oct. 17 and must now be transported to individual farms. Patterson said it will cost about $100 per bale to bring the hay to the area. An estimated 30,000 to 50,000 bales may be needed in Lanark County. Funds raised at the Nov. 3 Lanark Hay East Fling will be used to bring hay from the railroad yard in Smiths

Falls to area farms. Patterson told councillors the Lanark County Cattlemen’s Association and friends have also been lobbying the federal government for a disaster relief program, and are awaiting a response from Minister of Agriculture Gerry Ritz. The benefit dance will be held at the Almonte Civitan Hall, with a beef on a bun barbecue getting under way at 7 p.m. Cakes donated by county municipalities will be auctioned during the evening. The hall, auction items, food for the barbecue and entertainment have all been donated. “We want to have a fun time, and we want to raise money to feed these cows,� said Patterson.

The Carleton Place and Beckwith Historical Society launched its winter series of lectures recently at the Moore House in Carleton Place. John Moses, a member of the Delaware band from the Six Nations of the Grand River, spoke on Aboriginal Contributions to Canada’s Military Heritage. Emphasis was on the War of 1812 and the native involvement in this aspect of our history. Moses shared several artifacts with the audience, and conducted a question and answer period. The Society will present a talk on archeology in November. Check the website www.cpbheritagemuseum. com and visit the Facebook page for date and time.

EMC News - Lanark County won’t provide sustainable funding to the local shelter for abused women, but it will help lobby the federal and provincial governments for assistance. At a regular meeting Oct. 24 Lanark County Council voted not to refer a request for $35,000 from Interval House to the 2013 budget process, based on a staff report which stated that granting the request would severely impact the county’s already declining budget for social housing. A motion to invite Lanark, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington MP Scott Reid and MPP Randy Hillier to a future meeting to discuss solutions to the problem was approved. The initial funding request was made by Interval House executive director Erin Lee Todd at an Oct. 10 meeting of the county’s social services committee. Todd told the committee the shelter is facing a deficit due to increasing costs and declining provincial funding. Todd quoted Lanark OPP statistics showing 501 domestic violence calls in 2011 compared to 426 calls in 2010 and 382 calls in 2009. The shelter served 481 women and 141 children in 2011-2012. In her presentation to the committee, the Interval House executive director argued that the shelter is addressing a potential problem of homelessness, since it is providing refuge for women and children forced to leave their homes to escape violence. The Social Services Committee directed the county’s Social Services Department to review the issue and determine whether there might be an opportunity to address the Interval House funding shortfall within the county’s homelessness strategy, and to bring forward a staff report as soon as possible. The county is currently de-

veloping a 10-year housing and homelessness plan. The staff report, prepared by social services director Nancy Green, concluded: “While it is recognized that the request from Lanark County Interval House is a worthy one, it is not one that can be accommodated in the Social Services or Emergency Services budgets under any of their provincially funded programs for a sustainable period of time.” At the same time that Interval House is facing reduced provincial funding, said Green, Lanark County Social Services will have only $853,239 in provincial funding in 2013, compared to $1,209,045 in 2012. “This reduction will have a significant impact on the people served by these programs, and will create a ripple effect on other services/agencies across Lanark County,” commented Green. “It is both ironic and tragic that the province is asking for a 10year homelessness strategy while significantly reducing the funding for existing homelessness programs.” Granting the request from Interval House, Green reported, would negatively impact the level of housing and homelessness support the county will be able to provide. “It is also important to note that not all victims of domestic violence we assist are clients of Lanark County Interval House,” Green added. “Some approach us on their own, while others are referred to us from other community agencies.”

LAWS has many to thank for community fundraisers A little about me... I am a very sweet, affectionate and a quiet older girl. I hang around with my friend Bridget who is the outgoing one... It helps me to come out of my shell and experience the world in a different way. I am tolerant of other dogs although I prefer the quieter ones. I definitely need to be an indoor dog as I don’t tolerate the cold very well. Life has not always been kind to me and now I would really need a nice home to retire to and to enjoy a piece of that sunshine...Would I fit into your plans?

This Week’s Pets someone’s heart... I will need a very specific person to take me home. I find it difficult to keep my cool around other dogs, so I should live with an all human pack. Victor is a Boston Terrier X, white and brindle, male who is one year old. A Little about Me… They named me Victor after the “RCA” dog… Do you see the resemblance? I am an extremely cute dog, I am friendly and social with all people, including children. I can be dog-dog friendly when introductions are properly done. I am a young dog who is receptive to humans and who wants to please. I am very determined and willful though and, as such, will require formal training classes and structure which will allow me to trust in my new owner’s guidance. I really love attention and affection from people and I know how to get it! I am treat motivated, very playful, enthusiastic, and outgoing so my new home will need to keep up with me! Please… no cats, they rub me the wrong way… Are you very active, can you offer me lots of physical exercise and mental stimulation? Then, I’m the guy for you! Veda is a Hound X, white and red, female (spayed) and is seven plus years old.

“purrrfect” companion! Pet Fest thank yous The owners and staff at Slackoni’s were amazing supporters of LAWS – the dinner was fabulous. All proceeds went to LAWS, all servers volunteered, and they even helped put on the Pet Fest microbrewery event on their patio that afternoon. The dinner was close to sold out - attended by 45 people. We’re hoping to do it again next year. With advance notice, and return guests, it could become a nice fundraiser for LAWS.

EMC Lifestyle Shakeera is a Rottweiler X, black and tan, female (spayed), three years old. A little about me... I am a very affectionate girl, but I can be cautious and apprehensive around new people. I know some basic commands such as “sit, down and shake a paw” and I have a good recall when off-leash. I learn best when the rules are clearly defined and... it helps if you have treats in your pocket! I will need a gentle owner who will guide me in a consistent manner. Despite all the activity at the shelter I am not very vocal but I can be choosy about the dogs that I play with. I love to play fetch and I will need an owner who can keep up with me! Chester is a black Lab with a white chest. He is neutered and nine years old. I am a fun-loving and independent guy. I like to jump and run. I can find creative ways to escape enclosures and will need a very secure fenced yard for safety. I do have some good training skills, but I am a little rusty so will need a refresher. I can be very sensitive about having my collar grabbed, so a harness and a good handler will be best. I’ve enjoyed my stay at LAWS, but I have been here way too long... I desperately need to find my way into

Mitsubishi RVR a competitively priced CUV

Auto Know BRIAN TURNER

and heater controls are uncluttered and easy to use and the instrument panel is free from unnecessary distraction and allows drivers to select their own auxiliary gauge or trip data to display in between the large analogue speedometer and tachometer. Rear leg and headroom is better than most CUV’s and cargo room is generous at 49.5 cubic feet behind the first row of seats and 21.7 cubic feet behind the second row. The 2.0 L engine won’t set any track records, but propels the RVR up to highway pace with little complaint. The CVT transmission has six-speed shifts programmed into its controller to provide the feel of a regular automatic and not the slushy ‘shifts’ of most variable speed gear-boxes. The ride is free from the chop and roll that can plague this CUV segment and braking and steering systems provide suitable handling and safety. Some automakers get a little too wrapped up in design and one of the first things this effects is outward visibility as artistic and future looking body lines seldom make for large clear windows. Mitsubishi has avoided this by putting function and safety above styling. But they still managed to come up with an attractive exterior package. Mitsubishi kept safety at the top of the standard equipment list with no less than 7 air-bags, an active stability control system, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, and active front-seat head-rests just to name a few. Fuel economy ratings from NRCan peg the RVR AWD at 8.6 L/100 km city and 6.6 L/100 km highway (32.9 mpg and 42.8 mpg). The EPA ratings in imperial gallons from the U.S. are 28.8 mpg and 34.8 mpg. Its 60 L fuel tank should deliver a 50/50 driving mix range of over 700 km and cost around $66 to fill at $1.20/L. On the maintenance side of the coin an air filter is priced at $36.95, front brake pads and rotors are $149 and $204 respectively and a dealer oil change with recommended synthetic oil will set you back $60. The P215/70R16 tires on my tester are available from a very large selection of makers ranging in price from $120-$250 each. The big story in value with Mitsubishi continues to be their industry-leading warranty. The RVR is backed by a 5 year/100,000 km base warranty and a 10 year/160,000 km power-train plan. This alone adds hundreds of dollars in value to an already competitively priced CUV. If you’re looking for a CUV or compact crossover with real AWD capability in an affordable package with solid performance, then the RVR deserves your consideration. Brian Turner

EMC Lifestyle - The vehicles I road-test for these reviews come from two main sources: press fleets owned by the Canadian head offices of the manufacturers and local dealerships. I prefer to use dealership units whenever possible because they more closely represent the trim and equipment level that you or I shop for, whereas press fleets are made up of fully loaded higher-end models. If you are interested in learning more about any of these vehicles, check out the manufacturers’ websites or better yet, call your local dealership and speak to one of their knowledgeable staff. It’s the ultimate in interactive information gathering. The Mitsubishi RVR (Recreational Vehicle Runner) I enjoyed for this review came from the friendly folks at Canada’s newest Mitsubishi dealership: Rivington Mitsubishi in Carleton Place. While Mitsubishi may be only celebrating its first decade in Canada, in reality their vehicles have been on our roads for much longer. Cars like the Dodge Colt, or Summit Wagon were Mitsubishis’ with different nameplates and early Hyundai’s’ (remember the Pony and the Stellar?) ran on Mitsubishi power-trains. Their latest foray into the compact utility vehicle (CUV) market, the RVR was actually introduced in Asia in 1991 as the Colt Wagon and is currently sold in the U.S. as the Outlander Sport. This four-door front-wheel or all-wheel drive is priced from $19,998 to $32,998 and my SE AWD level unit came in at $25,698 (all prices before destination, dealer prep, licence, taxes, or current incentives). Power comes from a 2.0 L four-cylinder engine developing 148 hp and 145 lb/ ft of torque. The transmission is of the continually variable type which makes the most of the engine’s power input while still allowing for better than average fuel economy. The RVR comes with a surprising level of equipment for a mid $20K CUV with such items as tilt/ telescoping steering column, heated seats, 140 watt audio system, remote keyless entry, 6-way adjustable driver’s seat, and a hands-free cell phone system just to name a few features (in fact the hands-free system comes standard on 3 out of the 4 trim levels of RVR). And for all-wheel drive users, the rotary control that takes the RVR from front-wheel to all-wheel drive includes a lock position that ensures predictable handling and traction on snow and ice covered roads. The RVR has one of the best laid-out interiors I’ve seen in this class and the seats are very supportive and easy to adjust to various body-types. Audio

Almonte hosts senior football final Friday; St. John has opportunity to do the double By JEFF MAGUIRE

counts four shutouts among their six regular season victories! At Naismith Field Thursday Almonte scored early and often against fourth place PDCI who were 2-4 during the season. Blue Devils grabbed the final semi-final place by winning 36-6 over Carleton Place High School (CPHS) Golden Bears in their last regular season outing. Bears were also 2-4 but lost out on points for and against ratio. Thunderbolts took control of the semi-final with Perth early, striking for three touchdowns in the opening quarter and never looking back. The winner of Friday’s Lanark senior title game will move into the regional playoffs and a date with the Renfrew County High School Football League champions on Tuesday afternoon, Nov. 6. This year’s contest will be played on the home field of the Lanark champions. In Renfrew County senior semi-final action last Thursday it was third place Mackenzie High School Mustangs of Deep River surprising second place Renfrew Collegiate Institute (RCI) Raiders 23-13 in Renfrew. RCI went 4-2 during the regular season while Mustangs finished 2-4. Deep River now has the unenviable task of taking on two-time defending league and provincial (Tier 2) champion Arnprior District High School Redmen in the league final. That contest will be played Friday at 2 p.m. in Arnprior. Redmen earned a bye through to the championship game after a perfect 6-0 season during which they outscored their three opponents 239-88. Meanwhile the finalists have also been determined in the Lanark-Renfrew Junior High School Football League following two very close semi-finals last week. St. John of Perth will host defending champion Arnprior at 2 p.m. Friday with the junior crown at stake. Last Thursday the host Junior Spartans squeezed

past fourth place CPHS Junior Bear Cubs 14-12 to qualify for the final. Spartans finished first with a 6-1 record during the regular

season while Bears were a solid 5-2 during the campaign. In the other semi-final

clash perennial champions Arnprior had their hands full against Smiths Falls and District Collegiate Institute (SFDCI) RedHawks,

outlasting the visitors 2220 Thursday afternoon. Arnprior was 6-1 during the season while SFDCI posted a strong 5-2 mark.

EMC Sports - As most high school football watchers expected, the undefeated Almonte and District High School (ADHS) Senior Thunderbolts easily qualified for the Lanark County Senior High School Football League final last Thursday. T-Bolts, under the direction of long-time head coach Chris Spratt, rolled over visiting Perth and District Collegiate Institute (PDCI) Blue Devils 48-7 at Naismith Field in one of two league semi-final games. In the process Almonte improved their impressive 2012 mark to 7-0. Tomorrow (Friday) afternoon at 2 p.m. ADHS will host St. John Catholic High School Spartans of Perth in the senior championship game. St. John posted a solid 35-15 decision against Notre Dame Catholic High School Warriors of Carleton Place in the other senior football semi-final played last Thursday in Perth. Meanwhile the Junior Spartans will host Arnprior District High School Redmen in the Lanark-Renfrew junior final tomorrow. That means St. John has an opportunity to do the double this season, just as Arnprior teams did in 2011. It is unlikely Almonte will go into tomorrow’s senior title game over confident! Last season Thunderbolts were beaten 23-14 by Spartans in the Lanark senior football championship game, after ADHS had completed an unbeaten regular season. Last fall’s contest was played in Perth and both teams went into the game with identical 6-0-1 records. T-Bolts and Spartans tied in their only regular season meeting last year. Almonte came out on top 20-7 in their only head-tohead meeting with St. John this season. That game, played in Perth on Sept. 18, was the league opener for both schools. After the campaign opening setback, Spartans went 5-0 the rest of the way and rang up a pair of shutouts. By comparison ADHS

which could be affixed to the car license? For this, they might charge a minor fee which could yield substantial revenue for the department. It also would relieve handicapped individuals of parking grief and problems related to poorly designed permits. I urge you to give this problem serious attention and to alleviate this problem created by your department. Thank you sincerely, JS Kingston The Ontario government responded to our reader with a statement to the effect that the placement of the permit and the info it contains are governed by legislation and that a removable permit was chosen because there are many applicants, (minor children, seniors) who neither drive nor own vehicles but still require and qualify for permits. They added that this provides for family members, friends or service providers to take the permit with them when they are providing transportation to someone with a disability. They also indicated the laminated permit has security features and is in fact quite durable. Affixing it to the sun visor or placing it on the dashboard protects the personal and identifying information on the reverse side of the permit. If the permit was hanging from the rear-view mirror, identifying information about the permit holder would be visible through the windshield and/or the side windows. Additionally, they wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t suggest suspending the permit from

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

much vision impairment (if not more) than a suitablysized permit tag hanging from the rear-view mirror. And on some vehicles with a dark band of window tinting at the top of the windshield the permit might not be completely visible if left attached to the sunvisor.

EMC Lifestyle - A thoughtful reader wrote in with a concern she tried to take up with the Ontario Minister of Transportation recentlyâ&#x20AC;Ś â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dear Minister, Our province is unfortunately being ridiculed for its treatment of handicapped people with our Accessible Parking Permits (APP). The problem is an aggravating and frustrating one for which there may be an easy solution. I would not have known of the problem until my own mobility became impaired. I used to live in Winnipeg and recently moved back to my home province of Ontario. Thus I was driving a vehicle with an Ontario license plate but with my Manitoba handicap sticker. At grocery stores, shopping malls, and other locations, I was stopped regularly and questioned by other individuals. They wanted to know where I got my handicap placard which hangs from my rear view mirror. In seeing my Ontario license plate, they assumed that the handicap sticker was also from Ontario. They then regaled me with their complaints - that their Ontario permit (a piece of laminated paper) had to be placed on the dashboard and, when the window was open, it sometimes flew out the window and they lost it - or that they used rubber bands to tie it to the sun visor but then they must remember each time they park to lower the visor or else they get fined several hundred dollars. In summary, the complaints were about the design and poor quality of the Ontario handicap permit and the desire to have one similar to those provided in other provinces and states. Could the Province of Ontario not provide disabled parking placards which can hang from rear view mirrors or else decals

EMC Lifestyle - If you have ever thought of the sex life of wildflowers, and you probably havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, you would probably think of bees, pollination and other scientific terms.

Nutrition for the breastfeeding mother By DIANNE OICKLE

EMC Lifestyle- Breastfeeding is the normal, healthy way to feed a baby. When a motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body makes breastmilk, it is important that she eats healthy foods and gets enough calories to support milk production. A motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s diet does not have to be perfect to breastfeed successfully. A mother does not need to eat special foods for breastfeeding, but she does need to eat a little more food and drink more fluids to help the body produce enough breastmilk. What does a nursing mother need to eat? When a motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body makes breastmilk, it is important that she is eating healthy foods and enough calories to produce breastmilk. What does this mean in terms of food? Here are some examples of healthy snacks that can be eaten throughout the day (in addition to regular meals) to make up for the extra calories needed: â&#x20AC;˘ 1 cup of one per cent milk + 1/2 cup trail mix (nuts + dried fruit + dry cereal) â&#x20AC;˘ 1/4 cup shredded cheese + 1/2 cup pasta (macaroni & cheese) â&#x20AC;˘ 1 cup of one per cent milk + ½ tuna sandwich â&#x20AC;˘ peanut butter sandwich + fruit â&#x20AC;&#x201C; i.e., banana, apple When a mother breastfeeds, it is not necessary for her to avoid certain foods. A wide variety of foods in the motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s diet will mean that the breastmilk is full of flavour, which babies love. The only time a food should be taken away from the diet is when the mother thinks

that baby has had a reaction to something she has eaten. This does not always mean that the baby has a food allergy. A breastfeeding mother should discuss with a doctor, Public Health Nurse, or dietitian if she thinks the baby is reacting to something she has eaten. What about fluid? A busy new mother may forget to drink fluids, or sometimes does not like to drink water. What can a mother choose to drink instead of water? Any fluid will have some water content - milk, 100 per cent fruit juice, and soup are some good examples. A good general guideline is to drink fluids at each meal and snack, and to try having something to drink each time the mother sits down to breastfeed the baby. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Drink to thirstâ&#x20AC;? is a good rule of thumb- when you are thirsty, grab a drink and drink until your thirst is quenched. What if the mother does not eat healthy? If a breastfeeding mother does not eat healthy, it will not affect the quality of breastmilk. The overall nutrient content of breastmilk will stay stable as the breastmilk will draw nutrients from the motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own nutrient stores. However, when a breastfeeding mother does not eat enough food and does not eat healthy food, then the amount of breastmilk produced sometimes may go down slightly. It is very important not to go on a low-calorie diet after the baby is born in order to lose weight. A low-calorie diet may mean that the mother is not eating enough calories and nutrients for her own health, and it may mean she

Nutrition Tips is tired more often. If losing weight is a concern after the baby is born, a healthy strategy is to continue eating a variety of healthy foods to support breastfeeding, eat less snacks, and enjoy physical activity everyday. Talk to a Registered Dietitian or a doctor about healthy weights. Does the breastfeeding mother need vitamin supplements?

During breastfeeding, it is important that the mother get her nutrients from healthy foods rather than from a vitamin-mineral supplement. Often during pregnancy, a mother may choose to take a prenatal vitamin supplement. After the baby is born, a mother can continue to take prenatal vitamins during breastfeeding until her current supply of supplements is used up. After that, healthy foods can supply all the nutrients a nursing mother needs.

Breastfeeding mothers who are vegetarians or who have specific health concerns may have special nutrient needs. It is important to talk to a dietitian to discuss the need for supplements. When becoming pregnant is a possibility, even during breastfeeding, then a woman needs to take a folic acid supplement in the amount of 0.4 milligrams every day to help prevent birth defects, even if being pregnant isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t in the plans.

Christmas comes early for this music loving fanatic Musical Musings STEVE TENNANT

a Speakeasy by creatively tipping up the beds, hanging some LED lights, each having different artists perform in every room every 30 minutes or so. From klezmer to country/roots to folk, jazz or blues ... and mixes of each are exhibited. It’s probably my hitting the big six oh but most players seem younger and younger every year and the quality of performances just keep improving. In their attempts to being heard, groups would set up in the lobby or jam together in hallways. Live music was everywhere .... Yes, it was like Christmas for me. I sat on the side of a bed mesmerized in one late night room listening to the stellar vocals of Cindy Church (one of Quartette’s members) singing songs from her new album backed beautifully on acoustic guitar by Steve Briggs (Bebop Cowboys, Russell deCarle Trio)... just his guitar subtly surrounding her inviting voice. Following them was Russell’s Trio and then later Wendell Ferguson and Steve Briggs jamming .... I was transfixed, each song like unwrapping another gift from under the tree. There were over 500 showcases throughout the weekend, some of which are multiples of the same artists so you have more than one opportunity to see them. That’s a lot of hearts and emotions being bared in one facility but the dedication, professionalism, great coordination by OCFF Staff and the sheer magic of it all makes it all work wonderfully well. Arthur McGregor, owner of The Ottawa Folklore Centre for the past 36 years was rightly honoured at the Gala Dinner by receiving the Estelle Klein Award for his contributions to the world

feeling I got all weekend at the Conference in that, from seeing and hearing all the upcoming young players in this unique genre, we are in good hands ...

of music. Over the years he’s run coffee houses and folk clubs, booked countless performers at clubs, concerts and festivals, provided employment to many musicians needing such and been an ambassador for the music world besides being a wonderful player himself. On Saturday night after Arthur McGregor’s acceptance of the Estelle Klein Award, Borealis Records hosted a Hootenanny upstairs. I stopped by quite late and was moved by the musical history in the room. Paul Mills (musician and producer of Stan Rogers and so many others), Grit Laskin (Order of Canada recipient, award winning luthier, veteran musician), Eve Goldberg (veteran folkie), Richard Knechtel (veteran children and adult performer and festival artistic director), Bill Garrett (veteran CBC host, musician and one of the founders of Borealis) and in the middle was Arthur (founder of Ottawa Folklore Centre, Canadian Folk Music Awards, musician) smilin’

from ear to ear as together they played standard after standard. Each of them have given tirelessly to helping develop this genre, which those in the know view something like herding cats. On the last tune of the night in the wee hours of the morning, as if symbolically, these veterans acknowledged youth as they all nodded in appreciation as muted trumpeter Mike Bourgeault added some subtle harmony to the mix … a memorable moment with Arthur shining brightly.

raises the bar on player performances. Many in attendance are weekend warriors who somehow fit gigs around their day jobs and family obligations just trying to get to that next step of trying to survive on their music full time. Others are scraping by covering the rent and keeping a vehicle on the road to allow them to maintain their travelling circuits. Toronto Blues Society hosted for example Thursday’s Showcases with a mixture of veterans and newbies. Blues legend Danny Marks was replaced by another Toronto veteran, Paul Reddick due to illness. On stage later were the newbies 24th Street Wailers who just last year were gorilla showcasing in the lobby of last years’ Conference and as a result have been touring across Canada and the States full-time. Newbie Nicole Christian’s ballsy vocals and slide were ably backed by Hamilton vet – Alfie Smith’s powerful dobro. It was a lovely mix of blues to start off the weekend. There are workshops presented throughout the day sessions to help educate musicians on topics like: crossing borders, Making Your Music As Great As It Sounds, Song Placement, Publishing & Royalties, Agents & Managers – If At All?, Website Workshop, Songwriting workshops to name a few. Often veterans will host these training events and provide invaluable information from their experience. My far better half Susan and I are House Concert Presenters so attended a packed room dedicated to this pursuit. Thirteen Official Showcases happen each night in the large ballrooms of the hotel and are amplified with PA’s, amps etc but the late night sessions up on the two “Music Floors” are virtually acoustic and often this is where real magic happens from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. or later.

EMC Lifestyle - As I admitted proudly in my last column I am a live music geek. I love acoustic music more and more and a week ago attended what can only be called an early Christmas gift by anyone who thrives on this type of music as I do. The Ontario Council of Folk Festivals 26th Annual Provincial Conference (who voted to change their name to Folk Music Ontario at their Annual General Meeting) is a four day affair held in a large hotel – this time the Delta Meadowvale in Mississauga. I’ve attended these conferences for over 10 years and look forward to it more every year. There were approximately 900 people attending, of which at least 600 were musicians wishing to get booked at festivals, concert halls, clubs, special events north and south of the border. The sense of “Community” is quickly realized by those who join in and the wide variety of musical styles is matched by only by the diverse age range of those participating. I volunteered at the Registration Desk and utilized these hours to, while checking people in also reconnecting with players I’d met before. They arrived from the Yukon, Newfoundland, Vancouver Island and every other province as well as many States. Few had record companies supporting them but the bulk were Independent Artists in solo, duo and group configurations, paying their own way to strut their stuff. One of the most refreshing realizations every year for me is the apparent lack of ‘ego’. This gathering is also a rare chance for musicians from across the country to get caught up with one another. Many are on the road touring for 200 plus days a year and so, other than meeting at a festival where others are playing or at a club, most rarely see one another unless by happenstance. Special is seeing performers play in front of their peers which definitely

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

MOVIE: Cloud Atlas STARRING: Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent, Doona Bae, Jim Sturgess, Hugo Weaving, Ben Whishaw, James D’arcy, Susan Sarandon, and Hugh Grant DIRECTORS: Tom Tykwer, Lana Wachowski and Andy Wachowski RATING: 14A EMC Entertainment - Cloud Atlas is one of the most ambitious films I’ve seen. The depth and breadth of its story staggers the mind. Its scope brushes against the sublime. Its vision will haunt you long after the credits have faded. There’s no way to summarize this film in a few short paragraphs. I can tell you it takes place over the course of a number of lifetimes and across centuries. It’s about the good and evil inside all of us. It’s about the choices we make, and how those choices can have far reaching consequences. It questions the dogma that the strong are the rightful rulers of the weak. If the story has a beginning it’s in 1849 where a young lawyer, Adam Ewing (Jim Sturgess), takes a sea voyage with Dr. Henrey Goose (Tom Hanks). We then come to the 1930s where a young composer, Robert Frobisher (Ben Whishaw), writes to his lover, Rufus Sixsmith (James D’Arcy), of his struggles to complete his masterpiece while under the thumb of the once great Vyvyan Ayrs (Jim Broadbent). It then moves to the seventies where reporter Luisa Rey (Halle Berry) investigates a mystery surrounding a nuclear power plant run by Lloyd Hooks (Hugh Grant). In our own time publisher Timothy Cavendish (Jim Broadbent) becomes imprisoned in a nursing home by his brother Denholme Cavendish (Hugh Grant). In the distant future we watch a clone, Sonmi 451 (Doona Bae), with the help of HaeJoo Chang (Jim Sturgess) learn the truth of existence, and begin a revolution. And in the very distant future as the last vestiges of humanity struggle to survive we witness Zachry (Tom Hanks) and Meronym (Halle Berry) find hope. Each soul is connected.

A quaint scene taken recently in Kemptville.

He popped the question in his 1959 Plymouth hardtop EMC Lifestyle - Ron Clark of Caledonia, Ontario, still has fond memories of the 1959 Plymouth hardtop he purchased off a car lot in Simcoe in the fall of 1961: “It was black with a white top and had the 318 cubic inch V8 engine with a pushbutton automatic transmission, a major change from my earlier cars (a ’50 Chev and ’53 Plymouth). My ’59 Plymouth had fender skirts and wheel discs and I added purple ‘mood’ lights which never seemed to help much for me. I must say, though, that it was in this car that I proposed to my future wife Nancy. Maybe those lights brought me luck as we have been married now for 48 years. “Unfortunately, another major change was in store. We got married in 1964 and had to downsize to a Volkswagen Beetle.” More than 40 years later, Ron purchased the convertible version of the twodoor hardtop he owned back in the ‘60s: “I bought my 1959 Plymouth Fury convertible at the BarrettJackson Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona, in 2007. It’s in great condition and has the same power train as my original ’59. I suspect the

interior has been redone, and it’s in the same gaudy copper colour as original. I believe it is quite rare as only about 5000 were built.” Both of Ron’s 1959 Plymouths had high sweeping tailfins as they rolled off the assembly line. The late 1950’s was the golden age of fins on cars, and the Chrysler Corporation offered them on all their cars at that time. I was seventeen when the ’59 Plymouths began rolling off the assembly line, and I can still remember being struck by the handsome imprint of a spare tire on the trunk lid between the two tailfins. Two convertibles were offered in 1959, the Belvedere and the Sport Fury. Ron’s car is a Sport Fury and cost $3125 U.S. when new. The 318 V8 was standard equipment. The Fury first appeared in 1956 as a two-door hardtop with lots of horsepower. It came only in white with a very prominent gold trim along the side and quickly earned its reputation as a hot car. The Plymouth Furys of the ‘50s and ‘60s are highly collectible today, especially the convertibles.

It was a picture perfect day for the annual 2012 Trail Ride in support of the Lanark County Therapeutic Riding Program. Dozens of riders, and hikers too, came out to enjoy the fresh country air and fall scenery at the Jonses’ farm near Pakenham. Each year, the Riding Program hosts a fundraising trail ride, complete with BBQ and tack sale. This year’s first prize winner was longtime supporter Kelly Barclay who brought in $874 worth of pledges. At left is Amy Booth from the Therapeutic Riding Program and Barclay. The Lanark County Therapeutic Riding Program has been offering specialized riding lessons to the disabled since 1986.

Hospital to close six beds at each location By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

EMC News – Both sites of the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital will lose six beds each as part of ongoing budget cutting. However, hospital administration is certain that layoffs will not be likely to attain a balanced budget. “I doubt there will be any lay-off situations,” said Linda Bisonette, interim president and chief executive officer (CEO) of the hospital. She added that early retirement packages have been offered to older staff, followed by “voluntary exits” thereafter. “We are taking a humane approach,” Bisonette said, adding that the management has already reached deals with

two of the three trade unions represented at the hospital, and they are still in talks with the third. Already, the hospital is working to reduce overtime, though “there will be times when overtime will occur,” said Bisonette. Bisonette stated that the hospital will run a deficit in 2013, but will likely be showing a surplus by 2014. “Politically, closing beds sounds bad, that patients will suffer,” said Lynda Hendriks, chair of the hospital’s board of directors. “The need for beds is reduced by the amount of time people convalesce.” Now, thanks to modern medicine, someone recovering from hip surgery can be out of hospital in two days,

Hendriks stated, whereas 20 years ago, their stay in hospital may have been far longer. “You can function with fewer beds,” said Hendriks. “Things have changed.” Perth deputy mayor John Gemmell had requested that Bisonette present an update to Perth town council on Tuesday, Oct. 23, to quell rumours that had been swirling around about possible budget cut scenarios at both facilities. Hendriks explained that the hospital had started a peer review on July 13, after meeting with Robert Devitt, president and CEO of the Toronto East General Hospital, to begin the process of bringing in a balanced budget and “to give us direction. He required a lot of paperwork,” recalled Hen-

driks, requesting a deluge of minutes, memoranda, reports, and even time sheets. The process was not only to balance the books but to bring the budget in based on “revenue based budgeting,” said Hendriks, who added that the administration “worked with staff to come up with creative solutions, (to create) a solution that came from within, from the staff, the management.” As of Thursday, Oct. 18, the hospital’s board approved the peer review and sent it to the Champlain LHIN (Local Health Integration Network), which oversees the hospital. “In the hospital business, the resources that we utilize…

EMC News - The Lanark Highlands Youth Centre is hoping to secure a $25,000 grant to help build a healthier community. Youth centre executive director Ashley Wheeler appeared at an Oct. 24 meeting of Lanark County council to seek a letter of support for the centre’s application to the Heart and Stroke Foundation for a Spark Together for Healthy Kids grant. The purpose of the project is to spread awareness and build support for healthy community practices and policies, especially healthy eating and active living, said Wheeler. According to the website of the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario, Spark Together for Healthy Kids is the foundation’s response to the growing epidemic of childhood obesity. It is a provincewide initiative aimed at inspiring individuals, families, communities, businesses and government to “spark” collective change to help children become more physically active and eat healthier foods. A similar grant was awarded recently to the Rural Recreation Advocacy Project of Lanark Health and Community Services to help increase the number of active children and youth in the county. One aspect of the Lanark Highlands project, if the funding can be secured, will be to develop a healthy food and physical activity charter collaboratively with the Youth Centre Coalition, Wheeler told county council.

Shrine Klowns call it quits: first ladies close makeup cases ljweir@metroland.com

EMC News – Who will send in the clowns? No one now… the Land ‘O Lakes Tunis Shrine Klowns and Facepainters are no longer in service. The men, and their first ladies – have officially retired from clowing around and painting faces at local fairs, festivals, parties and events. There was still some joking around last week though, and balloon animals were made, photos were taken, and laughter could be heard coming from Lannin Funeral Home in Smiths Falls. It seemed like a fitting place to gather for their last official gig. The funeral home’s owners Bill and Sue Anne Hilton welcomed the group. Bill Hilton was a potentate of the Tunis Shriners, so he offered the chapel as a place for portraits. “We’re getting too old for this and there is no one to take our places,” said Ron Stronski, otherwise known as Ronski the Clown. The men behind the masks are all seniors. J.J., who is Perth’s John Hauraney, is 83. “I’ve been doing this for 27 years,” Hauraney said. “The trouble is, there are no young people coming in to take our place. We can’t do it anymore.” “It’s sad really,” said Roco who is Robert Cosh, 64. “I will still be a clown though for the Ottawa Shriners. I don’t want to give it up.” Cosh loves his alter ego. “It’s a relief to be a clown,” he says. “It gives you a sub-

set… I don’t take things too seriously.” Jim Cassibo, who is Pockets the Clown, takes after his father, Clarence, who was also a Shrine clown. “My father was ‘Pops’,” said Cassibo, now 66. “He was one of the original clowns.” Cassibo says he gave away all of his father’s costumes. “It’s gone – as is his persona… the name, everything.” The face-painting by the women in the group came about the same time. Beryle Beckett of Smiths Falls says her late husband Omar, who was a long-time Shriner, got her involved. “You should have seen the first ‘faces’ we painted,” she said with a laugh. “They were white balloons with those little cardboard feet… well the faces we painted were no hell.” Connie Ryan, another original face painter, also recalled the early beginnings. “We had a little pup tent we used,” she said. “It had a kitchen stool.” With practice, the women became better painters and took their makeup cases to the road, accompanying their husbands to fairs and festivals where children lined up to be turned into lions and tigers and even butterflies with sparkles. The Shriners Klowns are as popular as popcorn and candy floss at local fairs, events, fes-

Hospital staff clears the air with council about bed closures Even with the information out there, Coun. Judy Brown noted that the perception game is still one that has to be addressed. “People may be concerned… how it (bed closures) will affect patient care,” said Brown. “This is not going to affect patient care. This has not been an easy thing to undertake… but it is business as usual.” The hospital is uniquely served in that it has not one, but two foundations to help in its fundraising efforts, the Great War Memorial Hospital of Perth District Foundation and the Smiths Falls Community Hospital Foundation. Coun. Jim Boldt wondered if “in your plan… will you be spearheading any new fundraising events?” to help cover the deficit. “We cannot use fundraising efforts to fund day-to-day operations,” said Bisonette. “They have to be utilized for projects or equipment.” Coun. Jim Graff pointed out that his own family has been affected by the shortage of long-term care beds, with

his own mother staying at the Great War Memorial Hospital’s third floor while she waited for a bed to open at the Lanark Lodge. Bisonette said that while Lanark Lodge seems to be perpetually operating at capacity, increased home support may be a better way to address the stress on beds in hospitals, “so that the weight is not so much in hospital but (patients can be) at home with home support. “Being able to be supported in your own home… is a gift for our seniors.” Another aspect that must be considered with our aging population is that nurses have to focus more on their core jobs now and less on social services that patients may want, but which they no longer have time for, as they once did. “We don’t have the quality of life services that they have in long term care,” said Bisonette. “There was a time we could do that. But now we have to focus on acute care.” Bisonette said that if anyone in the community had

any concerns, or wanted to address any rumours that they

had heard, they can contact her at 613-283-2330, ext.

are determined by our physician staff,” said Bisonette. Along with all of the regular frustrations that come with operating a two-site hospital, Bisonette added that, over the summer, she and her staff have had to contend with the rumour mills in both Perth and Smiths Falls. “Oh dear, the hospital is bankrupt!” is one comment Bisonette said she heard over the summer. “Nothing could be further from the truth.” Addressing those rumours was the main reason that Gemmell requested Bisonette and Hendriks’ presence last week. “People are getting nervous about this,” said Gemmell. “Rumours are swirling. Hopefully the provincial government will step up and do its job. That’s not council, that’s just me.” Coun. Beth Peterkin agreed with the need to clear the air. “When people know only half of a story, they may make some assumptions that may not be correct,” said Peterkin.

Lanark Highlands youth group seeks funding Wheeler said that in Canada only nine per cent of boys and four per cent of girls achieve the recommended 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous intensity activity per day. The Lanark Highlands Youth Centre received a $5,000 advocacy development grant in April, and ran a 4-H Healthy Living Education Project for local youth this fall. Through this project, said Wheeler, young people at the centre were asked to evaluate existing resources in Lanark Highlands that promote healthy living (such as the beach, ball diamond, and the youth centre) and to identify what additional resources are needed. The participants said they would like to see improvements such as a bigger grocery store with a healthier

selection of foods, as well as healthier selections at local restaurants. The youth centre has other initiatives to promote healthy eating, noted Wheeler. “At Lanark we offer a community project every Friday night where the kids do the cooking,” he said. “We have a fairly nice (vegetable) garden located right behind the municipal building in Lanark,” Wheeler added. “I had the pleasure of being invited to one of your meals last year when I was (Lanark County) warden,” commented Beckwith Township Deputy Reeve Sharon Mousseau. The youth centre was seeking a letter of support from the county for its application to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, as well as assistance in reaching municipal and other levels of government.

CP deputy mayor shares opinion with Perth over ‘bidding war’ EMC News – Carleton Place council is distancing itself from comments made by its deputy mayor, Ed Sonnenburg, about starting a “bidding war” amongst Lanark County municipalities by slashing prices on industrial lands. Carleton Place’s Policy Review Committee voted on Tuesday, Oct. 23 to instruct Mayor Wendy LeBlanc to “send letters to each of the recipients of the deputy mayor’s email noting that the comments made by the deputy mayor in no manner reflect the opinions and policies of the council of the Town of Carleton Place.” Sonnenburg’s email was a reply to an email sent by Carleton Place businessman and developer Volundur “Wally” Thorbjornsson, which referenced a front-page article in the Perth Courier EMC on Thursday, Oct. 18, entitled “Perth adjusts prices for industrial lands.” “I…wanted to point out to you all how other different townships are working to try to secure more employment,” the Icelandic native wrote. “As you can read in the article, the Town of Perth is lowering the price of its available land to attract more business into town. They see this as a tool to make it easier for new business to set up. They recognize that they will recover the money ‘lost’ in the sale price through future taxes. With this, the Town of Perth joins (municipalities) in our area like Arnprior, Smiths Falls, Kemptville and a few more that are more aggressive than Carleton Place (in attracting) new business. I believe that there are many opportunities waiting to be grabbed by a progressive (municipality) and I’m hoping I can work with you all to make that happen.” In his email, sent to members of Lanark County council, on Monday, Oct. 22, Sonnenburg wrote “now Perth wants to subsidize business with a property tax…I will never support property owners subsidizing businesses because their profits/success doesn’t provide a single thing to the town, except peripherally…and they contribute very little, if anything to our community.” The deputy mayor’s email

was sent to his fellow Carleton Place representative on county council, LeBlanc, as well as Perth Mayor John Fenik and his colleague, Lanark County Warden and Perth Deputy Mayor John Gemmell. “A company can make umpteen million dollars and contribute absolutely nothing ‘directly’ to our town, and I do mean NOTHING!” wrote Sonnenburg, who added at the end of his email that his comments were made as a “personal comment.” “I don’t understand why Perth feels this is such a good investment?” he wondered. “My feeling is that they are mortgaging their children’s future for a company out to make a profit with no real/ honest concern for the town… When a town gives away its industrial and business district to subsidize non-contributors, I have a problem.” He also accused any companies that want to use the land of not contributing towards the servicing of the land (i.e. roads), and insinuated that Perth was trying to gain an unfair advantage over Carleton Place. “This type of playing people off, one against another, disturbs me down to the bottom of my heart,” wrote Sonnenburg. “So, John (Fenik), how much do we have to increase our property tax to compete? When does the bidding begin?” Mayor Fenik replied that the bidding would not be starting any time soon, if ever. “In looking at the email that was sent out I was a bit puzzled with what he (Sonnenburg) was saying,” said Fenik during an interview before the start of the Perth and District

Chamber of Commerce’s annual dinner at Code’s Mill on the Park on Thursday, Oct. 25. “It’s his opinion. I question where Ed was coming from in saying that business is bad,” said Fenik, who noted that he read Sonnenburg’s email at least three times over. Fenik said that he had had an email exchange with LeBlanc, “responding to Ed’s email,” to reiterate the good relations that exist between the two communities. “We are intent on developing the best climate for economic growth,” added Fenik, noting that businesses do indeed contribute to a town’s economy. “They contribute in so many ways,” said Fenik. “A lot of our businesses are good corporate citizens,” pointing to donations to the United Way and other local charities, and volunteering, as just two examples, beyond simple business and property taxes. “They employ people (too),” he said, and those employees also pay local taxes. Not the first time Sonnenburg’s email to Lanark County council comes more or less two weeks after he had his pay reduced for one week and was put on notice for the remainder of his term on Carleton Place council for a series of “inappropriate” emails. The deputy mayor was the focus of a four-page report from the municipality’s integrity commissioner, Robert J. Swayze, dated Sept. 26. The document was made public at the town’s Oct. 9 council meeting. “I am appalled by the time, energy and cost expended by staff and council over the past two years, on reacting to the

inappropriate conduct of one member of council,” wrote Swayze. The integrity commissioner received an official complaint near the end of July, which was signed by LeBlanc, and Carleton Place’s chief administrative officer (CAO), Paul Knowles, alleging Sonnenburg had contravened the Carleton Place Code of Conduct when he sent an inappropriate email on July 18 to the town’s director of public works (Dave Young) with a copy to a member of the public. Swayze wrote that he initially read the complaint as applying only to the July 18 email but received a further note from the CAO (on Sept. 6) expanding the complaint

to include two subsequent emails from the deputy mayor date Aug. 3 and Aug. 24. “The sending of these inappropriate emails seems to be compulsive behaviour on his part and must stop,” wrote the integrity commissioner. Furthermore, “it is inexcusable for the deputy mayor to continually harass the CAO openly with copies to his staff,” he communicated. “It has been hurtful to him and damaging to staff relations.” Nearly two years ago, the deputy mayor’s remuneration was suspended for a period of 30 days “for sending out derogatory emails concerning staff and directing staff in their job.” On Monday afternoon (Oct.

29), LeBlanc told the Canadian Gazette EMC that she read the deputy mayor’s email to Lanark County council and “it does not breach the Code of Conduct we have all signed in Carleton Place.” “However, there is a code of courtesy where one municipality does not make comments on the policies or decisions made by other councils,” she added. Perth and Carleton Place enjoy an excellent working relationship, noted the municipal leader.

EMC News - A local fundraising dinner and cabaret, in aid of a memorial fund for the Sharon Lee-Mkakatu kindergarten school in Tanzania, is set for Nov. 9 at St. James Anglican Church in Perth. The school is being constructed in a small village where Lee’s husband, Rama Mkakatu, grew up. The school will serve five and six year-old children who currently have no facility available for them. Sharon Lee-Mikakatu died on Dec. 26, 2010, age 51. She was a parishioner at St. James. She was the first of five daughters born to Bishop Patrick and Mary Lee in Winnipeg, Man. She was predeceased by her father Patrick on September 26, 2010 and subsequently by her mother, Mary on July 8, 2012. All three died of cancer. Lee-Mikakatu lived a full life always striving to make the world she lived in just a little bit better. Her work as a poverty law lawyer took her from the Ontario Legal Clinic System to South Africa and to Tanzania with CUSO where she met Rama. She returned to Ontario with Rama where they made their home and welcomed the birth of their son Baraka. She loved her work in the legal clinics and especially at the Lanark, Leeds and Grenville Legal Clinic. She worked hard to bring a sense of social justice to the world through her work and the positions she held on boards of directors including Interval House, Kingston Aids Project; Project Ploughshares; and Children’s Resource on Wheels.

OPINION

Perth Courier - Your Community Newspaper

Put down the pen Sonnenburg EMC Editorial – Like Hurricane Sandy, which had us all blown over earlier this week, we’ve all been witness to another force of nature of late. His name? Ed Sonnenburg, the deputy mayor of Carleton Place. As you may have heard by now, Sonnenburg likes to write emails. A lot. He also likes to write emails that berate and intimidate staff at Carleton Place town hall, fellow councillors, and others. Now, he’s decided to cast his net further, all the way down Highway 7, taking Perth town council to task for having the audacity to lower the prices on their industrial lands because, well, frankly, they just weren’t selling at their current prices. Carleton Place developer Wally Thorbjornsson sent an email to Carleton Place town council last month, picking up on a front page story in The Perth Courier EMC on the land price cut and politely wondered if Carleton Place council could do the same. Sure, no harm in asking. His letter was polite, diplomatic and to the point. Yes, Thorbjornsson seeks to benefit, but the town would also benefit from jobs, added taxes, et cetera. It should have ended there. But apparently, Perth’s decision appeared, in Sonnenburg’s view, to be the start of a county-wide bidding war, with different municipalities in a race to the bottom to undercut each other’s prices on industrial land. Perth Mayor John Fenik said he was uncertain what Sonnenburg was getting at first, so he read the missive over several times. We are somewhat perplexed by Sonnenburg’s email too. He comes across, at points, as sounding like he is sitting in the middle of an Occupy encampment as he rages himself against ‘the man,’ or, in this case, how businesses contribute absolutely nothing to a community.

Yes, there are certainly less-than-honorable business operators in this world who would gladly close up shop and move to a Third World or developing country for expanded profit, sending a Canadian town reeling in the process. Just look at what happened at the Hershey plant in Smiths Falls moving to Mexico. But I’m sure that Sonnenburg’s email will come as unpleasant news to members of the Carleton Place business community in particular and Lanark County in general, since Sonnenburg also sits on county council. As Fenik said, and we are sure Carleton Place Mayor Wendy LeBlanc would agree, businesses contribute in many ways to the community, through taxes, yes, but also in volunteering, in the taxes employees pay, and in keeping things humming along. Why Sonnenburg sought to stick his nose in Perth’s business is a mystery to us, and it will only highlight the precarious position he finds himself in at town hall, where the integrity commissioner has already ruled against him for bullying emails, and has fined him accordingly. It baffles the mind why the deputy mayor of Carleton Place, who otherwise comes across as an able and solid citizen, should choose to keep on digging when he is already clearly in over his head on this matter. So Mr. Sonnenburg, do yourself a favour. Stop writing. Push yourself away from the computer and go take a walk. Take another look. You’re not helping anyone, you’re making the situation – any situation – worse by doing what you’re doing. You’re embarrassing your town, and letting yourself down. Remember the opening lines of the Desiderata – “Go placidly amid the noise and haste/and remember what peace there may be in silence.” You deserve it and so do we.

Heading for the bunker EMC Lifestyle - As I write this on the weekend, the east coast is evacuating and shutting down in light of a conglomeration of weather systems around Hurricane Sandy. Forecasters are saying it will affect tens of millions of people right into Ontario, particularly our southern neighbours. The weather system is being called “Frankenstorm.” How appropriately Halloweeny! I am inclined to dress up as a Terrified Person™ and build a bunker. We have lots of canned goods and stuff in the pantry. We bought batteries on the weekend (although that was more related to Girlchild’s birthday party) and our large water jug is at the ready. I never worry about having light as we are armed to the teeth with myriad flashlights and battery- and solarpowered lights of various descriptions. Groom-boy has a serious light fetish. It’s quite weird, actually. I once proposed in this space that Groom-boy be hired by some independent third party to perpetually cruise the landscape at night and report burned-out lightbulbs. Over the years I have heard more than my fair share of stories about missing letters in store signs and extinguished street lights. I tell you, he would be a bright shiny star at this. Burned-out lightbulbs cause him a surprising amount of angst and Must! Be! Stopped! But I digress. We have food, water, batteries and lights. No bunker…but that could be

Past Deadline overdoing it anyway. I have also used this space to wax rhapsodic – not that long ago – about exaggerated weather stories. Don’t get me wrong – I am in no way belittling the intensity of Hurricane Sandy and the fact it has killed dozens of people and affected countless lives. But I do worry when newscasters start labelling systems with terms like “Frankenstorm” and “Storm of the Century.” If it doesn’t live up to the hype, which has been known to happen, it’s like crying wolf. How many times have we in eastern Ontario cancelled buses and headed for shelter based on weather warnings and news reports, only to be met with a skiff of snow or, worse, a bright sunshiny day? (Not that I have anything against bright sunshiny days. Besides, I am That Mother™ who takes her kids to school even when the buses are cancelled.) I understand it’s risk management and that if warnings

aren’t issued and heeded and something happens and someone gets hurt then it is a big deal. There is a case to be made for the fact that forecasters are merely that – forecasters – and they can’t really tell exactly what is going to happen, but I wonder if we should all toughen up a little so that we know how to cope in bad weather rather than running scared? Especially in this rather sedate part of the world. Think of this. In the spring or summer when it rains (assuming there is no drought), forecasters call it rain. It’s not “Rainmageddon.” We are not advised to take cover. A “summer storm” involves thunder and lightning, which tends to be more threatening than plain old rain. That’s when you don’t want to be standing in a field with a metal pole or even an umbrella. Danger! In the winter, however, it seems that every time it snows we call it a “winter storm.” (Snow is just frozen, slippery rain, remember.) It could be a smattering of light, fluffy flakes, but we are advised to proceed with caution as it is a “winter storm.” If it’s more than a centimetre and a half – egad! It’s “Snowmageddon.” What’s up with that? I mean, it’s Canada! It snows here! Get some winter tires! Wear a toque! Don’t wear stilettos – wear snow boots! Grab a coping mechanism and get on with life! Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to find a bunker to stock with chocolate. Just in case.

To the Editor, It is amazing how the community pulls together when the need is there. We have all experienced this over the years with many kinds of disasters, accidents and personal situations. Our family is now dealing with this first hand. My husband has been diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, a devastating deterioration of the lungs, with no known cause or cure. This disease is

not well known even though it is as lethal as many cancers. Because it is not familiar to many people there has not been a great deal of much needed fundraising for research. We are attempting now to bring more awareness to the general public about this lifealtering disease. On Oct. 21 we had a walk in Perth, the first of its kind in this area and had an unbelievable response. Forty-two people turned out to

either help or walk and raised over $3,600. More pledges are coming in. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the many family members, friends and the caring people of Perth and area who made our endeavour such a success. We are hoping with more awareness soon we will find a cure. Barb Rancier Perth

Fraud Frights The two leading types of fraud in North America are identity theft and real estate title fraud. You may think that you will never be a victim of fraud, but unless you take the right precautions it could happen to you. Identity Theft In 2009, the Canadian AntiFraud Centre (CAFC) received identity fraud reports from 11,095 Canadian victims, for a total loss of more than 10 million dollars.1 Real Estate Title Fraud Industry experts estimate that the average real estate title fraud amounts to $300,000 and cost Canadians as much as $1.5 billion a year.2 The most common forms are mortgage fraud – when a buyer provides fraudulent information to secure a mortgage; and title fraud – when a person fraudulently assumes the identity of a homeowner and takes over title of the home, sells the property or arranges a new mortgage then takes the money and runs. Avoid fraud frights with these defensive measures: UÊii«Ê«iÀܘ>Êˆ˜vœÀ“>̈œ˜Ê private. For example, your Social Insurance Number (SIN) is usually required only for tax purposes or banking.

EMC News - This year there will be a late fall Farmers’ Market held on Saturday, Nov. 3, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. inside the Crystal Palace on the Tay Basin. It is a great opportunity to pick up items you have been missing for the last few weeks since the official end of the Perth market on Thanksgiving weekend, and a chance to stock up on items you may want for the winter season ahead. Honey, root vegetables, preserves, baking, meat, and crafts. You can even start your Christmas shopping early and buy local, sustainable items and food products for your loved ones. This season was a great one for the market! With the amalgamation of the Crystal Palace Crafters and the Perth Farmers’ Market, the vendors were able to jointly combine their efforts to bring a great shopping experience to the community. With local musicians playing most weekends, cooking demonstrations using produce from the vendors, as well as fundraising lunches for the food bank made for a dynamic year! And while this summer was a trying one for our local produce growers, customers still found hundreds of varieties

EMC News - In a smaller community like ours, it is not always easy for parents and their children to find things to do together. This is especially true for fathers, grandfathers and Big Brothers who want to spend quality time with their kids. One answer lies in doing something that both adults and kids enjoy, cooking! The Table Community Food Centre has a new program, Dads and Kids in the Kitchen. Dads and their kids (ages 8-16) spend quality time together cooking up a storm, learning new techniques and tasting different foods, meeting new people and sharing a delicious meal. There is no charge for the program. Dads and Kids in the Kitchen is just getting started in The Table’s big community kitchen and the feedback is great. “My son is actually trying vegetables at home now, where he wouldn’t before the program!” exclaimed one dad. This week the dads and their kids made Basque Pork Stew which was simple to prepare, used inexpensive in-

Chamber of commerce to honour young entrepreneurs in 2013 Businesses honour their own during annual chamber dinner at Code’s Mill Oct. 25 By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

The Perth Medal was presented, appropriately enough, by the first citizen, Mayor John Fenik. Before he presented the medal though, he announced that the Town of Perth had followed in Carleton Place’s footsteps and hired an economic development officer. The Perth Medal, Fenik noted, was bestowed on someone of significant distinction, who sought to better the town, with no monetary gain for themselves. This year’s prize went to Ralph Fish, who has been a proud member of the Rotary Club for the past 55 years, and has attended every one of their fundraisers, and has a perfect attendance record with the group. Fenik noted that this is an astounding statistic, considering that the local Rotarians put on up to eight fundraisers every year. Fish has also served as the club’s president and director. Fish’s other great altruistic passion has been the Perth Blue Wings hockey team, “those guys not bothered with contract negotiations,” joked Fenik of the ongoing National Hockey League lock-out.

Fish has been fundraising for the Blue Wings for many years, selling 50/50 tickets in the stands during games. His business in town has been long-standing. Fish went to veterinary college in 1952 and by 1953 he came to Perth and founded his own veterinary clinic. He was on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, save for his sacred one week off every fall for hunting. “He is a great example of what it is to be a Perth Medal winner,” said Fenik. “I feel very humbled and honoured to be here amongst previous winners,” said Fish. “There are a lot out there and in here who deserve it (the medal) just as, or more than, I.” In fact, Fish has been doing so such good for so long that he can remember the day, back in 1964, when one Judge Matheson approached the Rotary Club with the idea of the Perth Medal. While the plaque of previous winners bears his name, he shared his award with his dearly-departed wife, Mary. “Without the constant support of my late wife Mary, I would not have been able to attend all of the Perth Blue Wings games and board meetings,” he said, extolling her amazing abilities at raising four children, while managing a busy veterinary clinic office.

their environmentally-friendly infrastructure at their new digs on Dufferin Street. “If it wasn’t for our mom and dad moving us young kids here in 1976, we wouldn’t be where we are today,” said Lisa Hasler who, along with her brother Brad, are coowners of the business their parents founded. “We have the best staff you could ask for,” which is evident through their “minimal” turnover. One employee has even been with them since 1977. “We are so grateful and thankful for this award,” said Lisa. “Perth has been a great town,” added Brad. “It’s the best town in Ontario and maybe the best town in Canada. I would do anything for Perth. I want to thank everyone for doing this for us.” “It’s still very family oriented,” said Eric Drysdale. “When someone (an employee) has a new child, they bring it in and work and work stops and we all have a look.” The Lanark Leeds Home Builders Association Member Achievement Award was presented by Natalie Armstrong of Enbridge Gas to Mike Purdon, owner of Ennis General Carpentry Ltd., a lifelong Perth resident who started working at the company full time in 1988, having started part-time work there in 1985. About 23 years later, on April

1, 2011, he purchased the company from its longtime owner. “He (Purdon) has set an example only a few others could hope to follow,” said Armstrong. “I maintain the same level of commitment and service,” said Purdon, who added that his company employs 17 people, and “we are committed to small business in Perth. We appreciate your time tonight.”

EMC Business – The Perth and District Chamber of Commerce has announced a new award that will honour young entrepreneurs. “We are planning to add an additional award, starting next year,” said president Jill Campbell during the chamber’s annual dinner at Code’s Mill on the Park on Thursday, Oct. 25. “There have been suggestions of adding an award to this event,” by adding a fourth award. While the young people will start to be honoured next year, the regularly-scheduled awards were handed out to the town’s business community last week. Metroland Media advertising consultant Kevin Hoover presented the Business Achievement Award. Hoover pointed out that there were several criteria that had to be met for this award, and that it was not a “lifetime achievement award.” It was open to both new and old businesses alike, and businesses that had made an impact on the community, through volunteering and good deeds. The judges were also looking for businesses that held prudent ethical business practices. The award went to A&B Ford Sales Ltd. “The entire team contributes to the success of this business,” said Hoover of the business which as served Perth and Smiths Falls for more than 35 years, and has won accolades from Ford Canada for many of those years. Hoover noted that the company has raised and donated more than $125,000 to the Great War Memorial Hospital site in Perth over the years, and that the Fred Hasler Memorial Golf Tournament raises funds for the deserving. The company has also raised money for the Lanark Animal Welfare Society and minor sports such as hockey, baseball, soccer, as well as contributing to the Perth Fair, Festival of the Maples and the Santa Claus Parade. They were also commended for

Appleton Alfred Roger Appleton

Born on January 14th, 1928 in Hamilton, Ontario. Roger was predeceased by his wife Vivinne Matte. Roger attended local schools and later attended university in North Carolina. After completing his post-secondary education he pursued a career in journalism and was employed by several newspapers in Canada and the United States. In 1963, Roger moved to Ottawa and obtained employment with The Ottawa Citizen, where he remained for his entire career. His first assignment was court reporter where his quiet humour won him a special place with his colleagues and readers. His next assignment put him in charge of The Ottawa Citizen, City Hall Bureau. He reported and commented on City Hall business and participated on several panel discussions on municipal affairs generally. Roger’s final assignment with The Ottawa Citizen was to organize and administer “Action Line”, a consumers affairs column. In that post he soon attained a reputation for his ability to resolve disputes between consumers and retailers and between employers and employees. He was truly an advocate for the little man. He had the unusual talent of recognizing quickly those persons who were marginalized by society and he assisted them with a special sensitivity and determination. He will be fondly remembered by the many persons he helped, his close friends and colleagues who respected him for what he truly was, a loyal friend, a talented journalist and mostly an advocate of the little guy. Family and friends are invited to join together in a service to honour Roger’s life at the Smiths Falls Free Methodist Church, 573 Hwy 29, on Sunday, November 4th, 2012 at 2:00 P.M. Arrangements are in the care of Blair & Son Funeral Directors, Perth 613-267-3765.

He knew that you were suffering He knew you were in pain He knew that you would never get well on earth again. He saw the road was getting rough and the hills are hard to climb so He closed your weary eyelids and whispered “Peace be thine.” A golden heart stopped beating hard working hands at rest it broke our hearts to lose you but you didn’t go alone for part of us went with you the day God called you Home. Love you always, Joan, Bill and Marlene, Peggy and Harold, Angela, Anthony and Carmen, Riley and Aiden

Forever loved and always in our hearts Your Family MULROONEY, Linda - In loving memory of a dear daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother, who passed away November 5, 2005. Saying goodbye is difficult. Sometimes things happen suddenly, quicker than planned, leaving no time to whisper farewell. Perhaps we should say goodbye more often and with greater resolve... Through each tender kiss, each heartfelt embrace, each declaration of our love. Then, should the unexpected happen, there will be no regrets, no grieving over words unspoken, no memories but those of joy and happiness, the eternal blessing of love. Forever in our hearts Love Mother Eileen Johnston

HEIM, Maria September 4, 1989 – November 7, 2010. In loving memory of a cherished daughter, sister and granddaughter A gift for such a little while, Your loss just seems so wrong, You should not have left before us, It’s with loved ones you belong. If tears could build a stairway, And memories a lane, We’d walk right up to heaven, And bring you home again. We will miss and love you forever. Mom, Dad, Kevin, Nana and Papa RITCHIE, Allan Robert- In loving memory of a cherished father who passed away November 3, 2011. If we could have a lifetime wish And one dream that could come true, We would pray to God with all our hearts Just to see and speak to you. A thousand words won’t bring you back. We know because we’ve tried. And neither will a million tears, We know because we’ve cried. You’ve left behind our broken hearts and precious memories too. But we’ve never wanted memories, We only wanted you. Loved and remembered always by Karen (Robert), Bob (Brenda), and Grandchildren

YELLEN, Charlie - In loving memory of a dear Brother, Brother-in-law, Uncle, Charlie, who passed away November 2, 2008. It is hard to believe it has been 4 years We would like to hear your voice, see your smile To sit and talk to you a while To be together in the same way Would be our only wish today. We never ask for miracles But today one would do To see our front door open And Charlie walk through. Sadly missed With Love always Ted, Linda Joey, Michelle RaeAnn Yellen

Delayed work on Powers Road slated for budget consideration desmond.devoy@metroland.com

EMC News – Work promised for 2011 on Powers Road back in 2010 will be put up for consideration for the 2013 budget. Powers Road resident Doug Goodfellow, in addressing the Tay Valley Township committee-of-the-whole meeting in Glen Tay as a delegation on the evening of Tuesday, Oct. 16, reminded councillors that he had first brought the issue to their attention back in December of 2010. “The project was scheduled for 2011,” said Goodfellow. While he admitted that two culverts were replaced and work done to a ditch along the road, “that is pretty much all that has been done (there) in two years.

He noted that there were several construction firms in the county, from Cavanagh, Karson and Tackaberry, who could help with pricing in a competitive bidding process. “I’ve had people not want to come visit us because we are on the dump road, it is very choppy,” said Goodfellow, adding that he has spoken often with public works director John Simcock. “I’ve offered to help. I’ve offered equipment” to help clear away the brush, for free. “I’ve told him I will help take away the trees and burn them,” said Goodfellow. “I don’t want to take the work away from them but I want to help them.” Slated for rehabilitation Chief administrative officer Malcolm Morris told Goodfellow that Powers Road would be added to 2013 budget deliberations. “It is slated for rehabilitation in 2013,” said Morris. Deputy Reeve Susan Free-

man also sits on Lanark County Council’s public works committee and recently returned from a seven-hour “road trip” to look at roads in need of repair, and roads that had been repaired. “Not every treatment was the same,” Freeman said. “If the surface treatment is done right, the trees are not falling on the road, the shoulders are extended… the saving are considerable for doing it from asphalt. It lasts nearly as long. If we can do more roads and make them last 20 years, it might be the best thing to do.” Coun. Brian Campbell explained to Goodfellow that the work on Powers Road – the culverts and ditch work – “took longer than anticipated (and) it cost a lot more,” Campbell said. Coun. Wayne Jordan wondered “where did this (project) fall off the rails?” Fellow councillors and township staffers had their own reasons. “It’s been a difficult summer as far as grading goes, because of our inability to draw water” from bodies of water because of the drought, said Coun. Greg Hallam. But the main reason for the

work on Powers Road not getting done came from treasurer Peter Tranter. Because of high construction prices, “no roads got done in the whole township… the decision was made to hold off. Nobody’s road got done in 2011 or 2012,” said Tranter. “(For 2013) it is our hope that the prices are lower than in years previous,” added Tranter. Campbell pointed out that a 2.2 km section of Glen Tay Road up for renovations had been given an estimated price tag of $800,000, but when the work was done, the final bill came to $1.3 million. “That’s what it cost to do the work,” said Campbell, noting that Glen Tay Road is too far different in length than Powers Road. Regardless of how soon the road can be added as a line item in next year’s budget, Campbell cautioned that “we have to put it out to tender,” then and that that takes time too. “If you’re short of $55,000, I can show you where to make up the difference,” said Goodfellow. “(But) I’m glad you’re going to do something.”

ranch 244 of the Royal Canadian Legion is currently organizing the annual Poppy and Remembrance Campaign which is scheduled to start on Friday, Oct. 26th, 2012. For the convenience of the residents of Perth and the neighbouring community, and with the kind co-operation of the local merchants and store owners, Poppy counter top boxes will be placed in the establishments throughout the town. Additionally, representatives of local Legion Branch 244 will be posted, from time to time, in various locations in some town stores for easy access by the citizens to this most valuable means of fundraising for the Poppy Fund. The Poppy and Remembrance Campaign also embraces a Poppy Blitz on Monday, Nov. 5th, when various Legion members and friends go house-to-house for the distribution of poppies. This year there is a change in the timing of visiting in that some of the visiting may be carried out during daylight hours so that some after dark canvassing will be negated. This change will alleviate any requirement for a resident to identify the caller in the darkness. The generosity of the citizens will be much appreciated. These funds are used in the support of our Veterans and dependants and the provision of bursaries to deserving students who go on to higher education facilities after graduation from high school.

At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we will remember them.” R0011716692_1101

New classroom dedicated to Sisters of Providence By LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com

EMC News - The Sisters of Providence of St. Vincent de Paul united at the Smiths Falls site of the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital on Oct. 18 for a dedication ceremony in their honour. The Sisters of Providence Classroom was unveiled in the administration wing in front of a dozen staff members at the hospital. Linda Bisonette, acting president and CAO of the hospital, gave a brief history on the sisters and how they came to Smiths Falls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In 1904 the mayor had a public emergency on his hand with smallpox,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were no health care providers in the area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He called the Sisters of Kingston; first came two, then four. Initially they were working through the church and visiting people in their homes; and the thought was, if we had a little space the people could come to us and we would be able to treat more people more quickly.â&#x20AC;?

Sisters of Providence Gayle Desarmia, Marlene Schuster and Sheila Brady unveil a new plaque outside the classroom dedicated to them recently at the Smiths Falls site of the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital. That was the beginning of the St. Francis General Hospital. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As we moved through the years, we had additional wings built in 1912, then in the 1950s, and the front wing in 1969,â&#x20AC;? Bisonette said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I started here in 1973 as a student, we were well treated as students. The sisters were acting in management positions in those days and most importantly with us as we would experience our first death and it was a pretty

big deal for us â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for anyone â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the sisters always came and helped us through that process. There is a long history that I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even do justice to, but we are so thrilled to have you here today. It is our pleasure to recognize this

room in your honour.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a lot of fun here,â&#x20AC;? said Sister Sheila Brady, who was born and raised in Perth, attending St. John Catholic High School. She then went to Sisters of Providence for religious teachings, before entering nursing school to obtain her degree. She was in Quebec for a time, moved out west before coming back to Smiths Falls to work at the hospital. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a rink at the back that the maintenance man took care of in the winter,â&#x20AC;? she recalled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the nurses came out and said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;come quick; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lady having a baby and we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; so I came racing in on my skates, put a pair of gloves on and delivered a baby.â&#x20AC;? It may have been the only baby delivered with a sister in ice skates, said one guest in attendance as they broke into applause. Bradyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s calling is now working with prison inmates in Kingston. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love it,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m supposed to be.â&#x20AC;? Sister Marlene Schuster

came to Smiths Falls to work at the Rideau Regional Centre in 1981. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I visited the kids and was doing religious teaching, first communion and confirmationâ&#x20AC;Ś I got them involved. I was there until it closed in 2009.â&#x20AC;? She also visited homes as assistant in the parish at St. Francis church. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really lovely here; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a kind and caring community,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to thank all the staff who were working here when I came in 1981 when I stayed at the hospital,â&#x20AC;? said Schuster. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really enjoyed working here. You have all been so kind; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a great place to be and work.â&#x20AC;? Sister Gayle Desarmia expressed gratitude on behalf of those who couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be in attendance at the dedication ceremony. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When our leadership received word about this dedication, we were really touched,â&#x20AC;? said Desarmia. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We much appreciate the gesture and we will have stories to tell the other sisters who werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t able to make the trip.â&#x20AC;?

The Perth Community Choir presents a special musical 1989, the show was an immediate critical and audience hit. The Perth Community Choir is bringing the largest cast the show has yet had, along with a seven-piece jazz band, to tell the story of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s involvement, from the early days of a country totally unprepared for war, through the depths of defeat at Hong Kong and Dieppe, to the euphoria of final victory. Stage director Ian Jenner and musical director Don MacKay are working with both young people and older people to create a unique, constantly moving and surprising production. Through narration, vignettes

and monologues, the audience is taken to the skies over Britain, to the battlefields of Europe and onto the decks of corvettes in the North Atlantic, as well as back to the home front to see how the war affected those who remained behind. Working with the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s directorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, award-winning author and composer David Jacklin has re-worked the script and music for this production and even added some new bits to it. Author Jacklin, the son of a veteran wounded and taken prisoner at the battle of Ortona, sees MapleLeaf Up/ MapleLeaf Down as a way

to pass on and keep alive the events and feelings of that soimportant time, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tried to do it in a way that is always exciting and entertaining, while remaining true to the spirit of the times. MapleLeaf Up/MapleLeaf Down is a very special production for the Perth Community Choir, about an important time in Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history. Their motto for the show is: â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t there, you should be there!â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a story that every Canadian should know and a musical that will keep them entertained while they learn about it. MapleLeaf Up/MapleLeaf

Down runs Nov. 8, 9, 10, 15, 16, 17 at 8 p.m. and Nov. 11 and 18 at 2 p.m. All performances are at the barrier-free Full Circle Theatre, 26 Craig Street, Perth, near Last Duel Park. Tickets

swim meet is one of three home meets hosted annually by the Perth Stingrays. Other meets include the Mike Brown Invitational Meet and the N.E.W. Spirit Meet, named in memory of former Stingray, Nicole Wren. According to Stingrays meet manager, Shannon Baillon, running a swim meet is a big task, one that requires contribution from at least one parent for every child participating. The Spooky Halloween meet was successful thanks to the efforts of the more than 40 volunteer parents and community members who stepped forward to make it happen. Although hosting a meet is challenging, Machan stressed

it was important for younger and older swimmers to participate, support each other and challenge themselves. “It takes a community to raise a child and it truly takes a whole club to raise a competitive swimmer. The support from the other swimmers is so important to the success of their own,” Machan said. The Perth Stingrays is a non-profit club that relies on fundraising efforts to offset the operational costs. Their most recent fundraiser is a citrus order of fresh fruits from Florida. For more information about the fundraiser or to place an order please contact Katy Martin at 613-264-9233.

EMC Sports - More than 60 swimmers hit the water at the Perth & District Indoor Pool on Sunday, Oct. 28, during the Perth Stingrays Aquatic Club’s third annual Spooky Halloween Swim Meet. Despite the late date in October, Halloween was not at the forefront of swimmers’ minds on Sunday, instead they were focused on performing their best while representing their respective swim teams. In addition to Stingray team members, competing swimmers were from the Goulbourn Sea Hawks Sea Club, a neighbouring swim club. Brandi Machan, president of the Perth Stingrays board of directors, explained how participating in a swim meet in your home pool has definite advantages for younger swimmers. “Home meets are a great opportunity to introduce our new ‘intro’ swimmers into the world of competitive swimming,” Machan said. “There is a strong feeling of, we are at our home pool where everything is familiar and the older swimmers are on hand to provide mentorship to the younger swimmers.” The Stingrays performed at their peak on Sunday, with nearly every participant beating their own personal best times for 90 of the 135 swims during the event. Beating your own PB is something every swimmer strives for, particularly during meets when swimmers of varying ages may swim in the same event at the same time. A few highlights focused on the swimmers who won all five of their events, most often breaking four or more of their own PBs. Among those who won all five of their events were: David Machan (four PBs); Natasha McGregor (her first swim meet); Matthew McNames (five PBs); Lauren Miller (five PBs); Megan Wheeler (three PBs) and Courtney Wren (four PBs).

Perth Predators are unbeaten in seven By LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com

EMC Sports – The Perth Midget AA Predators are tearing up their Ottawa District Women’s Hockey League schedule and are now sporting a seven-game unbeaten streak. In their home opener on Saturday, the girls shut down the Carleton Place Cyclones 4-0 with Annie Patrice and Chenoa Saumure splitting net duties for the shutout. Goals were scored by Jessica Prance, Brooklyn Ramsey, Taylor Benda and Kelsey McEvoy. Last Tuesday in Carleton Place, the Predators spanked

the Cyclones 2-0 in exhibition action with Zoe Domitrovic and McEvoy scoring with Patrice in the crease. On the weekend, the girls travelled to Potsdam for an invitational exhibition against the Ice Cats U19 team and handed them a 4-2 loss. Prance earned a hat trick in the game with a single from Ramsey. Patrice and Saumure split netminding duties. Saturday night the girls host Clarence-Rockland in a 6:30 p.m. league start and Sunday, they’re on the road to Kingston as they play the Ice Wolves at the Invista Centre. Puck drops at 3:30 p.m. in this exhibition game.

Blue Wings bounce back to earn win at home ljweir@metroland.com

EMC Sports - The Perth Jr. B Blue Wings are now tied for fourth place in the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League’s Valley Division after splitting a pair of weekend games. They’re tied with Almonte at 13 points each after dropping a 7-6 decision to Metcalfe Friday night, and winning 5-2 Sunday night at home against Shawville. Friday in Metcalfe, the Wings fell into 2-0 hole after the opening period, then dropped even farther with two quick goals by Metcalfe in the opening minutes of the second. Then it was a Brett Madigan performance, as he and his linemates lit the lamp four times to tie the game at four all by the end of the second period. Madigan scored once and assisted on the other three markers of the second. Goals were credited to Riley Kane, Blair Barr and Mike Smyth. Smyth, Matt DiMillo and Cody Nicoll had the other helpers of the frame. In the third, Metcalfe went ahead just seconds into the period, but Perth took their only lead with two back-toback goals from Chris Goulet

and Smythe. Kane assisted on two and Madigan and Christian Bueti had the other helper credits. Metcalfe tied the score 6-6 with a goal at 9:26, and then scored the winner on a powerplay just two minutes later for the 7-6 final. Jason Shaw earned the win in the crease with Jeremy Wright taking the loss. Sunday at home, it was a different ball game of sorts, with the Wings earning a 5-2 victory over Shawville. Barr opened the scoring for Perth with his goal from Brad McDonald and Madigan at the 16:28 mark of the first period. Madigan made good on his power-play goal for a 2-0 lead at 8:21, assisted by Kane and Smyth. Shawville shot back in the second to tie the score; the first goal coming from Dylon Wisotski on the power play at 16:43 of the period, then Dylan McNamara at 15:39 for a two-all deadlock. Perth went ahead with Smyth’s marker from Madigan and Kane with 14:23 remaining. The Blue Wings added a shorthanded marker from Barr in the third period, just 10 seconds after the whistle, assisted by Austin Lamont for

the insurance. Madigan sealed his fivepoint night with the final goal of the game at 16:20, with assistance from Jacob Lyon and Cody Nicoll. ICE CHIPS The Blue Wings have been seen around town this month in support of the Cancer Society’s pink ribbon campaign. They have also helped the Special Olympians sell red shoe laces for their Be A Fan Day on Oct. 25. It’s good to have Jacob Lyon back in the lineup after suffering the first part of the season with a broken collar bone. He assisted on one Sun-

day night. Brett Madigan is making waves as the team’s top scorer. He’s got 33 points in 14 games with 15 goals and 18 assists. Riley Kane is second in scoring with 21 points, on seven goals and 14 assists. Perth is at the Barbara Ann Scott Arena on Thursday night, 7:20 p.m. when they take on Ottawa West. Saturday, the team is in Almonte for a 7:30 p.m. start, and Sunday, they’re on the road again, this time to Arnprior for a 7:30 p.m. start. The next home game for the Blue Wings is on Nov. 9 when they host Stittsville at 7:45 p.m.
