Youth centre founders honoured as champions By STACEY ROY

EMC News – What started out as a way to end boredom in small town Smiths Falls resulted in the creation of the town’s first youth centre. Those founding members were honoured recently as Youth Centre Champions. The formal presentation of the first Youth Centre Champions awards took place the weekend of March 23-24 to coincide with Youth Centres Canada’s (YCC) magazine launch. Les Voakes, executive director of YCC said the new recognition program began this year to acknowledge and highlight the dedication and commitment that past teens and adults in communities across Canada have shown in support of youth. When the idea was approved for action Voakes knew immediately the group of youth he would recommend, but had only one problem: how to narrow it down to just a select few. “I could have filled the page with people from Smiths Falls who could have

been listed as real champions,” he said. In the end, Voakes decided to list those who were involved in the early days of setting up the Smiths Falls youth centre and from there drafted the final list of nominees: Mark Evans, Justin Daye, David Van Scheyndel, Sherri Cassibo, Tanya Strickland, Jasmin Palendeau, Paul Coates, Dave Czuprys and Jim Dolan. “They never let up and they encouraged other communities to do it,” Voakes said of this group. Evans and Van Scheyndel attended the formal launch in late March and spoke to the crowd about their experiences in starting a centre that would be a safe place for local youth to get together, socialize and learn. It was the early 1990s when Voakes’ thesis work led him to survey area youth and ask them what they needed and wanted. The need for a youth centre was clear and Voakes began to ask area youth to join him in getting one off the ground. Van Scheyndel got involved in 1992 when the centre was above the post office and called Midnight Junction.

“It was pretty fun and could be quite busy as times,” he recalled. “I remember there were nights where there could be 200-plus youth there.” The former town youth would volunteer at the centre from his teenage years into early adulthood. Those years in growing the youth centre to the point where it would ultimately move into its current location and change its name to the Smiths Falls and District Club for Youth (now known as the Smiths Falls and District Centre for Youth) still has a place in Van Scheyndel’s heart. “There are a few people to this day that I’m still friends with,” he said. One of those people is fellow youth centre champion, Mark Evans. He was one of the youth who was bored in town and looking for a constructive way to focus his mind. The solution for him was to jump into the creation of the youth centre. Looking back on the process Evans said the hardest part of the centre’s opening was gaining acceptance and a location for it to open.

“The adults had a hard time accepting youth with empowerment,” he said. However, the project was valuable and much needed for the local youth who couldn’t afford to be involved in paid extra-curricular programs. Evans played a role in the early days of fundraising for the centre by volunteering as a DJ for fundraising dances. Once the youth centre was up and going Evans continued to work with Voakes in the Taking Young People Seriously (TYPS) program and then to the Skills and Initiatives effort before Voakes called him up and asked for his help in encouraging other communities to set up their own youth centre. Together, Voakes and Evans would prepare and distribute computers to communities across Ontario and parts of Quebec. The computers would serve as the centre’s first administrative computer and held a number of template policies and procedures on how to start a youth centre. “I did like 40 to 50 computers like that See YOUTH page SF5

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

Turn off the lights, the computer and the TV when they are not in use. Using only highly efficient and money saving appliances can reduce the electricity consumption of an average household to one tenth of the average.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

Master Gardeners

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

Sizing up impaired drivers all part of police officer’s job By DESMOND DEVOY

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

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

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

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






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

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

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

You might die laughing at Studio Theatre’s upcoming production EMC Entertainment – Get ready for ‘$38,000 For a Friendly Face,’ the new play by North Bay’s Kristin Shepherd, premiering at Perth’s Studio Theatre April 18. Here’s a taste of what you can expect from this black comedy about life and death at a funeral parlour, courtesy of the rhyming talents of director Roberta Peets. There once were two sisters, apart Who didn’t have much of a heart For their mother, who’d died. At her funeral, they tried To regroup and create a

fresh start. There was also an ex-cop named Matt Who’s now wearing a gentler hat He takes care of bereaved Who for loved ones have grieved And they all are so grateful for that.

But the love’s what we finally see. Then along comes the young Alison Who wants to connect with someone Should she stay? Should she go? Well we really don’t know Then she stays and connects everyone.

Even with more time, G.I. Joe sequel manages to fall short MOVIE: G.I. Joe: Retaliation STARRING: Dwayne Johnson, Channing Tatum, Adrianne Palicki, Lee Byung-hun, Ray Park, D.J. Cotorna, Jonathon Pryce, Ray Stevenson and Bruce Willis DIRECTOR: Jon M. Chu RATING: PG EMC Entertainment - The movie studio held G.I. Joe: Retaliation for a year so it could be ‘re-tooled’ which is code for we just had three bombs at the box office and can’t afford a fourth. I can see why they held it, but I’m not sure it was worth the wait. Duke (Channing Tatum) leads the Joes on a successful mission to retrieve some nuclear weapons from an enemy state. It’s just as the Joes are getting ready to head home that they’re attacked. When the dust settles the only Joes left alive are Roadblock (Dwayne Johnson), Lady Jane (Adrianne Palicki) and

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


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

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

EMC News - Ontario New Democratic Party Leader Andrea Horwath renewed her call for a hard cap on public sector CEO salaries following the release of the 2012 Sunshine list last week. “When public sector CEOs are getting pay hikes that are bigger than most people’s pay cheques something’s not working. We need a hard cap on CEO pay in the public sector,” said Horwath. “Money that should be going to frontline health care or lowering tuition fees, is being spent on CEO salaries, and that’s not fair for families who are struggling.” Horwath has reiterated her call to cap publicly-paid executive salaries at double the salary of Ontario’s Premier. The Premier’s current salary is $209,000. According to the provincial sunshine list, there are more than 25 public sector energy executives making more than twice the Premier’s salary, and while everyday Ontarians are told to tighten their belts, public sector executives continue to receive generous raises on top of six-figure salaries. • Tom Mitchell, the CEO of Ontario Power Generation made $1.7 million; •Laura Formusa, the CEO of Hydro One made $1.036 million, with a raise of over $70,000 (almost twice the pay of the average Ontarian); • The CEO of London Health Sciences Centre made over $600,900, including a raise of over $45,000; • The CEO of Sunnybrook in Toronto made over $760,000, including a raise of over $50,000;• The CEO of St. Joseph’s Health Centre in London made $470,000, including a raise of $20,000; • CEOs at all five major downtown Toronto hospitals made well above a proposed cap of $418,000. “Until we have a hard cap on

‘Drugosaurus’ undercover cops battle greed, weed, and misdeeds

EMC News – It’s probably a good thing if you do recognize Detective Constable Steve Rothwell in his work clothes. Because if you recognize him in his other, undercover work clothes, then he probably has some questions to ask you. Rothwell describes part of his job as walking around with “my hat on backwards, in my jeans, trying to find out what’s going in the county,” drug-wise. Being a cop, both undercover and in uniform, was not always his day job either. He worked for 20 years as a mechanic in Carleton Place before joining the drug unit in town. Both Rothwell and Detective Sgt. Chris Dobler of the organized crime enforcement bureau in Ottawa, were on hand at the municipal drug strategy committee networking session on Friday, March 1, at the Brunton Community Hall, Blacks Corners, Beckwith Township. They were there to lift the lid a little on how they do their job to catch the crooks and dealers preying on the vulnerable. “I’m a bit of a drugosaurus,” said Dobler with a laugh, of his 12 years in the drugs unit. “I am not going anywhere.” Dobler said he was heartened to see so many people together in one place, talking openly, honestly, and constructively about how to deal with the scourge of drugs. This was necessary not only because it is the right thing to do, but also because it is what the other side is doing too. “The criminals, they are working together,” said Dobler. “It’s not where the Hells Angels work alone. They are with the mafia, the Jamaicans and Asian gangs.” While the criminals never really change, the drug of the day most certainly does, and the chase is always on to catch on to the next big thing, and to bring our lurching laws along in to catch up. Nowadays, it’s “bath salts,” that are the problem. “We are seeing that now,” admitted Dobler. “We are getting a lot of bath salt seizures.” Bath salts have just recently

been “codeified,” for enforcement as a controlled substance, but the first cases using these laws are only getting to court now. Certain mandatory minimum sentences in the Criminal Code also came into effect this past November, and “we won’t feel the effects of that yet,” on drug cases. He did point out that, before the changes in sentencing, a bust of 40,000 marijuana plants in Petawawa netted the perpetrator five years – whereas the same crime in the United States would have resulted in a life sentence. Hash is also making a comeback in the area. “It’s a brown, tar-like substance,” said Dobler. “It’s not as strong.” Other well-known drugs are seeing a resurgence. “Crack is very dangerous but speed (amphetamine) is just the ultimate drug in destroying people’s lives,” said Dobler, with one tablet costing as little as $5. “For $5 you will feel like you can take on the whole world. It’s a 10 out of 10. We’re seeing it in pill form. Down in Kingston, we are seeing crystal meth. Speed, there is definitely an influx of that… we are seeing Fentanyl here.” In a dozen years dealing with drugs, Dobler has seen the scene change in scary ways. “Twelve years ago, it would be very rare if we saw a needle at a search warrant,” said Dobler. “Now, it comes across all the time.” The only thing that does not change is the greed of the criminals. “There is no loyalty, they (drug dealers) are not your best friend,” said Dobler. For them, it’s all about the money. While it’s not uncommon for drug abusers to believe they can trust their dealer, they also believe other incorrect information, like marijuana being relatively harmless. Dobler showed a T-shirt with a smoker lighting up, saying “Marijuana – hey, at least it’s not crack.” “That’s what a marijuana user thinks,” said Dobler. “The good Lord put it on the earth.” Debates about marijuana’s usefulness, medicinal and

otherwise aside, marijuana’s production and distribution is still controlled by the criminal element, and as such, there is no quality control, so to speak. Addictive elements are often added to the mix to hook users simply looking for a high. Drug suppliers will also tweak other drugs to boost their bottom line. “The coke (cocaine) we are seeing in the schools, it is buffed up, it is weaker,” said Dobler, adding that up to 50 per cent of ecstasy is laced with some type of methamphetamine, since ecstasy itself is not addictive, but dealers want to get kids hooked. Dobler heard this himself from drug dealers in Hawkesbury. “The drug dealers were telling us, ‘bag ’em up, get the kids addicted,” recalled Dobler. “They will keep coming back to you.” One way to do this was to stamp logos and cartoons on to the pills – including a John Deere tractor logo, or the Transformers cartoon logo, or an Ottawa Senators logo, though, in Hawkesbury, Dobler saw that Montreal Canadiens logos were selling better. While he takes his job seriously, Dobler admitted that there are unintentionally lighter moments undercover, and he has to watch what he says – especially when using drug terminology. In Ottawa, for example, the street lingo for marijuana is “herb”. In parts of the Ottawa Valley, however, it can be “green”. During one undercover operation, Dobler asked some dealers, “Hey, got any herb?” This question garnered him some nervous, shifty looks from his potential sellers. “What are you talking about?” they said, not familiar with the term herb. “Are you a cop?” Dobler also updated the assembled on different drug terminology that today’s high school students might use, and even have on their clothing, binders or backpacks, such as S.W.E.D. (Smoke Weed Every Day) or 4:20 (the time in the afternoon when tokers like to sneak off work early for a joint.) While teenagers will always want to tweak the nose of authority, Dobler has less time

matter when the drug scourge touches one’s own family, as it did with Dobler. “My nephew, he was approached to see if he wanted to smoke marijuana,” said Dobler. “He is in Grade 6.” He urged attendees and the public to remain vigilant and not be afraid of seeming like the paranoid old man on the block, always calling the cops. “What might seem small to you could be the cherry on top for us,” said Dobler. “If it doesn’t feel right, it likely isn’t.” Dobler heard of a great example of this himself when new neighbours moved into a house. A lady approached the house with a pie and some wine, welcoming gifts to the area. After she knocked on the door, the occupant flipped her the middle finger. This unneighbourly behaviour prompted her to express her complaints to the police. This led to an investigation and, finally, a raid, which netted 1,100 marijuana plants, and arrests all around.

VIA Rail agreement could see town on hook for more than $186,000

Cadet awards


The Royal Canadian Air Cadets were in attendance last week at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 95 for their annual mess dinner. Pictured are presentations made to the cadets for various achievements during the year. To the right, Capt. Penney Irish presents Preston York with the Effective Speaking Award.

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Mayor Dennis Staples is urging town staff to find a better option to an agreement with VIA Rail that could see the town on the hook for upwards of $186,000. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unfortunately, because VIA Rail is a crown corporation, they are not under any obligation to sign an agreement with the Town of Smiths Falls,â&#x20AC;? said Niki McKernan, assistant planner at the Town of Smiths Falls at the Monday, March 25, committee-of-the-whole meeting. Back in January, VIA Rail contacted town staff about the service contract and development agreement between the railway and the town, â&#x20AC;&#x153;indicating their dissatisfaction with the development agreement,â&#x20AC;? according to McKernanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report to council. Staff amended the agreement â&#x20AC;&#x153;to accommodate and remove clauses as requested by VIA.â&#x20AC;? However, this was still not enough, as â&#x20AC;&#x153;VIA continued to express concerns regarding the scope of the development agreement,â&#x20AC;? McKernan wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was a misunderstanding,â&#x20AC;? explained McKernan. Finally, in early March, the two sides came to an agreement of purchase and sale for the town to buy from VIA Rail the pumping station on Union Street for the price of $1. However, the agreement also includes a clause that VIA will be reimbursed â&#x20AC;&#x153;for the cost

of the station at the time future users connect to the system.â&#x20AC;? The cost of that â&#x20AC;&#x153;front-loading obligation,â&#x20AC;? would be $186,362.99. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This part that stands out in my mind is this â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;mutually agreeableâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; part,â&#x20AC;? said Coun. Ken Graham. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know why the pumping station is there. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because someone didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do their homework, and it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t us. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the end of the line for us, that pumping station. Water canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t flow uphill, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why it (the pumping station) is there.â&#x20AC;? He also reminded council that engineers had found that the pumping station might not be able to handle the capacity if more demand were put on it in future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A second pumping station would be required,â&#x20AC;? said McKernan. Graham was also concerned about the cost to the town if so much as a single development tapped the pumping station. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They could hold us to ransom if someone wanted to develop that (area),â&#x20AC;? said Graham. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The could hold us at bay. They could do a roadblock up for future development. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not their money. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taxpayer money.â&#x20AC;? Staples stated that town staff might need to seek additional advice from the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legal counsel before proceeding and signing the document. Staples also noted that even so much as, for example, a single new house tapping in to the pumping station could result in the town having to fork over the $186,000 plus amount to VIA Rail.

While your Hindi may need a bit of brushing up, and you may not need to know all of these languages, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re more likely to hear them by 2020 thanks to the rising number of immigrants from these areas who are calling Lanark County, and Smiths Falls, home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;India is huge, Spain is huge,â&#x20AC;? said Kim Leach, economic development coordinator, during the Monday, March 25 committee-of-the-whole. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do have a large Filipino community here. The number of languages spoken by the new arrivals is quite vast. The top languages include Chinese, Greek, Hindi, Filipino (Tagalog), Spanish and other European languages like Dutch and German.

In 2006, Smiths Falls had an immigration population of about 448. By 2010, that number had grown to 671 and by 2020, it is expected to top 671 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all that in a town with a population of about 8,777, according to the latest available census data. The town is in the midst of a funding window from the federal and provincial governments to the tune of $1,110,081, which runs until 2014, directed mostly at the T.R. Leger schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s immigration services. Another tool used to attract immigrants to the area, as part of the immigration attraction campaign within the county, is through websites like and The web site began in May of 2009 and attracted 111 visits â&#x20AC;&#x201C; mostly town and county staffers checking that everything worked. However, the web sites soon began attracting many more online visitors, with about 97,347

accessing the sites between April 1, 2012 and March 20, 2013. The online job board for immigrants has also just gone live, which helps match skills to jobs. The Local Immigration Partnership (LIP) is not promoting the job site to employers. Leach estimates that about 859 people have been reached directly through the program, which has also generated about 130 phone calls/e-mail responses and 15 letters seeking newcomer settler services. While New Canadians may be drawn to the area because of the affordable cost of living and slower pace of life, â&#x20AC;&#x153;people are still unaware of our services.â&#x20AC;? While Smiths Falls has been actively trying to recruit doctors and health care professionals to the area, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;shortage of health care professionals,â&#x20AC;? is a concern for Leach in attracting people to the area. New residents may also cite a â&#x20AC;&#x153;lack of cultural and

religious opportunities.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Traditional immigrants donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to come to small, rural communities,â&#x20AC;? said Leach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Attracting newcomers isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only problem. It is retention once they are here.â&#x20AC;? Diane Pinder-Moss, the LIP coordinator, explained that Smiths Falls is one of the smallest LIPs in Ontario in terms of areas served, with only an 18 km radius around town, into parts of Montague and Drummond/North Elmsley. The new immigrant guide Pinder-Moss produces with assistant Amber Colville covers everything from understanding Canadian currency to waste disposal. There are seven readers of the newsletter in Tagalog and 12 in the Mandarin dialect of Chinese. Community of the year nomination Pinder-Moss also came bearing good news to council for the town.

To educate the broader public about the issue, LIP is planning a multicultural dinner and dance this fall, as well as a planed newcomer fair this spring, which will be promoted to newcomers.

Lottery winner credits lotto’s charitable focus for her win By STACEY ROY

In the months of October, November, and December, for every new hearing aid purchased at the Madden Hearing Centre, the centre would donate $50 to the charity of the client’s choice. The entire campaign raised more than $10,000 for local charities in Perth, Brockville, Kemptville, Carleton Place, Almonte and Smiths Falls. Joining general manager Sheri Madden and her staff at the Smiths Falls location in Cornelia Court on Monday, March 4, are representatives from the Gerry Lowe Memorial Fund, Smiths Falls Lions Club, Smiths Falls Community Food Bank, Salvation Army, Smiths Falls citadel, Smiths Falls Community Hospital Foundation , Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lanark County, and Lanark Animal Welfare Society.

EMC News – Nancy Foster recently won $1.3 million (CAN) in the BiLLe Lottery (www.thebille. com) and she owes it all to her favourite television star and her desire to help others. It was while watching her favourite show Super Natural that she realized actor, Jensen Ackles was hosting a celebrity charity challenge in support of Down Syndrome through the BiLLe lotto. Foster’s family has been touched with the condition and so she felt she would vote for her favourite actor’s efforts to raise money for such a good cause and he won. From this single act of kindness Foster was granted four free plays from the BiLLe Lotto. “I’m a firm believer of pass it on. I believe it comes back I really do,” Foster said. That is certainly the case for this local woman. A spur of the moment pick of numbers resulted in the big win for this single mom. “I didn’t believe them. I thought they were scamming me,” Foster recalls of her initial reaction to the phone call telling her of the win. However, the lottery win came at a time when the local woman needed it most. Foster had been the victim of a credit card scam earlier and was

struggling to manage the bills on her disability income. “The bills were starting to pile up and I didn’t think I could keep up,” Foster said. In fact, the local woman had received calls from the hydro and gas company threatening to cut off their service just two weeks before her win. In such tight times, Foster felt she wanted to support Ackles charity and was impressed with the BiLLe Lotto’s support of many charitable organizations. “That’s what I really liked about it,” Foster added. “It’s not just to win the lottery it’s to help the lottery and help other people.” The local woman has received two lottery payments so far and still can’t believe her luck. “To me that was the hardest part was letting it sink in that I deserve it,” she said. Foster urges everyone to log on to www.thebille. com to learn more about the lottery and how they can help an array of charities through the celebrity charity challenge and general play. According to the website 10 per cent of sales goes directly to their charity pool with players able to vote on where they want to see the money go each week.

THANK YOU The Farrell family would like to thank everyone who came to celebrate the life of our dear Father, Son, Brother, Uncle and Cousin, Steven Douglas Farrell on Thursday, March 21st, 2013. It was a great tribute to him and also an absolute honour for his family to see and speak to all those who held him in such high regard. To all those who contributed to the Canadian Cancer Society and the Heart and Stroke Foundation in memory of Steve, we thank you. One thousand dollars for each charity was raised that night in cash alone. We cannot even begin to imagine how much more will be donated through cards and online, and for that, we would like to thank you too. On behalf of Steve, we would like to say that he would have been so pleased to see you all, and would have wished for nothing better than to have a drink with you, a laugh, and to make sure it would have been a night to remember. It certainly was for us.


THANK YOU Marjory Foster and her family would like to thank all of those who attended her 90th Birthday Party. Marjory felt richly blessed that so many came to celebrate with her. Special thanks to St. Paul’s UCW and all those who brought flowers, gifts and cards.

THANK YOU I wish to thank the many people who gave me and my siblings their love and support when our Mom (Nora Aubin) passed away on March 12, 2013.

Thank you for the cards and phone calls, and also to the CWL honour guard. Love Judy Aubin and family

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

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

McGOVERN, James – In loving memory of a dear grandfather who passed away April 6, 2012. In life loved and honoured, In death remembered. Sadly missed Andrew

ARMSTRONG, Judith, Mildred, 1955-2005 – In loving memory of a dear sister, sister-in-law, aunt and great-aunt who passed away April 7, 2005. You toiled so hard for those you loved, You said goodbye to none, Your spirit flew before we knew, Your work on earth was done. We miss you now, our hearts are sore, As time goes by we miss you more. Your loving smile, your gentle face, No one can fill your vacant place. Your life was love and labor, Your love for your family true, You did the best for all of us, We will always remember you. Remembered always Brian and Margo Armstrong Randy, Sarah, Tyler and Evan Armstrong, Stephanie (Armstrong), Ryan, Summer and Daylyn Imerson

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

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

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

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

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

Kudos to all who supported Jaqui see the free shuttle from Healey’s arrive for the hall was already at Maximum capacity, so I was relieved to see it empty and it was very much appreciated. I am so thankful for the very generous donations from so many of our local businesses and so many individuals from our community who kindly contributed so much to make this event a complete success. Thank you so much to so many. I think everyone who was able to make it out that night enjoyed themselves greatly as I have been asked many times, ‘When is the next one?’ I do so hope we can all get together again real soon to celebrate new lungs and new life for Jacqui. In the meantime Mr. Paul Howard along with Cynthia from the Bank of Montreal (Smiths Falls branch) have set up a trust account for Jacqui and Bruce to help with the many medical costs associated with the transplant if you would like to help out financially please make your donations to Jacqui Sandor in trust. I can’t find words grand enough to explain the amount of gratitude and joy in my heart knowing there are so many wonderful people here in this town and how such a wonderful community can come together in a time of need. All of your well wishes, emotional support, and the many prayers are so greatly appreciated and will help Jacqui put up a winning fight against Idopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. Thank you so much.

Letter: Reader dismayed by eroding hospital services DEAR EDITOR: I appreciated the article (March 28, 2013), on the presentation by Save Our Services (SOS) to Town Council regarding cuts to our hospital services, and I would like to add to the comments made by Mr. Lundy. I am dismayed by the chipping away of what is offered at our local hospitals. My family and I have had health issues that have required emergency treatment, surgery, and hospitalization. I was more than thankful these

were provided locally. I was able to be with family (and at times friends) for longer periods of time, and when required I was able get to bedsides very quickly. During those very stressful times, I was relieved that I didn’t have to make a trip into the city. The treatments we received were excellent, and the added bonus was that there were familiar faces in familiar settings. I urge anyone who has ever received help from our local hospitals to speak up to keep or reinstate services.

Local politician, Randy Hillier, is on the record for his support of private health care and Mr. Steve Clark won’t speakout about what is happening in someone else’s riding; therefore it is up to us as concerned citizens to do so. Remember before the crash of 2008, 40 per cent of all bankruptcies in the US were because of healthcare debt. That is not the Canada I want to live in. Norma Wrightly Smiths Falls


Draped in a red ticket sash, Nancy Langdon, president of the Broadview Nursing Centre resident council, poses with the ingredients for a spaghetti dinner. Beside her are Broadview staffers Rob Pierman and Cheryl Bingley.

Spaghetti fundraiser dinner on tap By PAGE TAYLOR

EMC News – It may be true that the way to the heart is through food. Or, more specifically, through spaghetti. On Wednesday, April 10, the Broadview Nursing Centre will be holding a spaghetti fundraiser dinner at the Smiths Falls Civitan Club from 4:30 to 7 p.m. The proceeds go towards the resident activity fund, which allows for weekly entertainment and monthly shopping trips for the residents.

Nancy Langdon, president of the resident council, enjoys the activities as much as anyone. “The staff is excellent at getting us out to things,” she explained. “My favorite is the entertainment.” Admission to the dinner is $10 per person – children under six are free – and not only buys a plate of saucy spaghetti, but includes a side of Caesar salad, drinks, coffee or tea and dessert. A vegetarian option is also offered. When it comes down to it though, Rob Pierman, director of

activation, said that not everyone comes only for the food. “We have some people that come out who don’t even like spaghetti,” he said. “They come out for the support.” There is no shortage of support at the Civitan Club, and for that, Pierman says that he’s grateful. “They’ve been paying for all the shopping trips,” said Pierman. “I want to thank (Civitan member) Gib Hodge for going over and above.” Tickets to the event can be purchased at the door, and take out is available.

THE EMC - SF9 - Thursday, April 4, 2013


DEAR EDITOR: Thanks again for the great article and wonderful picture for Jacqui in the March 28 issue of The Record News EMC. There were just a few key people I wanted to thank as they did so much to make this event happen. The evening was filled with amazing entertainment as mentioned in your previous article but this also included our feature band the “Jam Junkies” for without them I would not have been able to orchestrate such an evening it was Kurt, Rob, Steve, Jeff and Chris who had originally agreed to help me in this venture and who really made this night happen. The sound equipment was donated by Tom Burns, transported and set-up by Rob Moore; the sound was terrific and our night was packed full thanks to our fantastic M.C. Hugh Colton the night flew by at a truly dynamic pace. I want to give a huge amount of credit to Kurt Lowe our master chef who prepared the most mouth- watering delicious beef with gravy, which was accompanied by all the fixings prepared by our many wonderful, kind and generous volunteers. Louise and the volunteers from Lombardy Hall went over and above the call of duty to help out. We were also fortunate to have the Kinsmen to supply the bar. The kindness from Mr. Hodge and the volunteers from the Civitan was so greatly appreciated, we were even offered the RCAF hall for the event but I felt it might not be quite big enough and I was absolutely right... I was afraid to

Musical talent recruitment under way at Station Theatre in Smiths Falls EMC Entertainment - Have you got a band? Are you a solo musician? Want to become better known? Then consider an opportunity to present on stage at the Station Theatre in Smiths Falls. The Station Theatre is pleased to be presenting two accomplished performers in May and June and is looking for talented local performers to open for them.

EMC Business – An initiative from northern Ontario to put an end to the labour shortage and assist local employers with their employee hunt is coming to the Smiths Falls area. Garvin Cole, a profile auditor with HR North, had an opportunity to introduce his organization’s hiring program during the Local Immigration Partnership Council’s (LIPC) March 27 presentation at Valley Heartland CFDC. HR North got its start just this past February and since then has been working hard to fill its database with qualified workers and employers from a large part of the province (including Smiths Falls) with a focus on small and medium-sized enterprises. “If we don’t help those small and medium employers grow then our entire community is going to slow down,” Cole said. For a fee, HR North and its full-time staff will assist companies to collect and vet their applications for academic qualifications and overall fit within the company. Users also get access to retention guides and discounts on program software. Richard Timmons of Guildline Instruments in Smiths Falls attended Cole’s presentation and thought the program would be valuable for employers who receive hundreds of applications. “We’re so specific that we don’t have 100s of applicants,” Timmons said.

What he would find helpful are employer-specific programs that give tangible assistance to employers who are attracting a specific type of worker. To achieve this he supports getting more employer involvement when developing programs. It is through this process of intensified employer involvement that HR North got its start. The database service is offered through an employer’s council that had its start in northeastern Ontario in 2008. So far this council has created its own relocation guide, employer’s guide and mentorship program to name a few. Mayor Dennis Staples was interested in the prospect of this new database service assisting the town in making new contacts with family doctors looking to relocate. “This is one area I really want to get into,” Cole said. The mayor provided introductory comments to launch the second workshop hosted by the LIPC. During this he congratulated all those present at the March 27 session, saying “by working together we can do so much more.” Last week’s event was funded by Citizenship and Immigration Canada, in collaboration with the LIP Renfrew and Lanark and the Municipal Immigration Information Online (MIIO) project, under which the recent development of an online Job Board for the County of Lanark and Town of Smiths Falls was funded.

EMC Events - Starting this summer, there will be a new option for keeping your kids safe, happy, & busy in their time off from school. After successfully providing summer fun to Perth children for the past four years, Maple Key is bringing that same program to Smiths Falls. Maple Key Day Camp will be running their Smiths Falls camp at the former Basswood Golf Centre, now the Siloki Centre, at 123 Poonamalie Rd. The Siloki Centre has an 18 hole mini-putt micro golf course, outdoor driving range, and laser tag facilities, all of which will also be available for use by the camp. MKDC will also have its own separate indoor and outdoor spaces for programming that will not be accessible by the general public. “We are extremely proud of our program,” says Kristen Widenmaier, the

owner and director of Maple Key. “When kids progress from daycare to school, their needs change. “They need a program that is appropriate to their stage of development, that is challenging enough to keep their brains stimulated over the summer, and provides social interaction in a safe, nurturing, but also mature environment.” It is for this reason that age groups at Maple Key are kept to a range of no more than three years. Ten, 11, and 12 year olds often opt out of summer programs because they don’t want to be “stuck with the little kids. That won’t happen here,” Widenmaier explains. “They also have very different needs from smaller children, so their schedule is adjusted to reflect that.” Similarly, younger campers need the comfort of caring staff with the familiar-

ity of their own peer group. “Our four- to six-year-olds get a wide variety of programming, but their activity periods are kept short to match their attention spans,” says Widenmaier. The MKDC summer program will run in Perth and Smiths Falls from July 2 to Aug. 16. Regular programming runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., but they offer free extended care from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. to accommodate working families. Programs offered include ages 4 through 12. Maple Key Day Camp, established in 2009, is the only privately owned and operated day camp in Lanark County. Their goal is to provide high quality care and programming specifically designed for the needs and interests of school-aged children. For more on their programs visit www.maplekeydaycamp. com.

Finland crushes Czech Republic in IIHF exhibition By STAFF

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

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

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

The wins and shutouts were among the league leaders in each category. “PMart” as his teammates call him, had a 3.09 goal against average and a .907 save percentage. Martin followed up his stellar season with an outstanding playoff series against Carleton Place. Martin has completed his final year in the CCHL and the Bears wish him the best of luck in the future. Karson McCartney plays a high energy, exciting brand of hockey. The diminutive Perth native is fun to watch as he pesters opposing players at the Bears’ Den. It is no surprise that McCartney is the 2012-2013 recipient of the Rob Hull Fan Favourite Award. Well liked by the fans, his teammates and the Bears staff, McCartney just completed his second full season with the Bears at the ripe old age of 17. McCartney played in 55 of the Bears’ 62 games and collected 14 goals and 15 assists for 29 points. The rambunctious McCartney also earned 36 minutes in the sin bin.

Local family shares unique pageant tradition By ASHLEY KULP

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Visit to Vancouver gave spring a nice kick-start




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

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

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

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


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

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

The show will carry on, recognizing the big shoes and expectations left by Chopper will guide their direction for a long time to come and will continue to keep exposing Canadian folk music to its truly worldwide listeners.

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

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

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



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

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

and at the famous Pontiac streaks on the hood and trunk lid. The car you see in the picture is currently owned by Paul Calderone of Toronto, who purchased his dark blue metallic 1950 Pontiac Streamliner two-door fastback four years ago from Al Webster, a classic car dealer north of Toronto. A decoding of the V.I.N. indicated Paul’s car had been built in Southgate, California. Under the hood is a 239 cubic inch flathead inline six cylinder cranking out 90 horsepower and bolted to a three-speed columnshift transmission. Also available that year was a flathead straight eight with 268 cubic inches cranking out 108 horsepower. The year 1950 was a record setter for Pontiac with nearly 466,500 cars, breaking the previous all-time record in 1941. Also noteworthy for 1950 was the arrival of the first Pontiac hardtop, the Catalina, available in the Chieftain series, and instantly popular with almost 10 per cent of all 1950

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

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

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

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

This Week’s Pets

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Public welcome to Federal government announces new savings for Canadian consumers attend Perth climate change forum April 15 EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Honourable Lisa Raitt, Minister of Labour, on behalf of the Honourable Jim Flaherty, Minister of Finance, this week announced new tariff relief

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

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

Toyota rules at Monte Carlo conservation rally

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

Car Counselor

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

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

Volunteers needed for therapeutic riding


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