Hospital strikes surplus budget

to council the night before regarding a meeting at Lanark County headquarters in Perth between himself, his chief administrative officer (CAO) Steve Fournier, former Lanark County Warden John Gemmell, Montague CAO Glen Barnes, and Montague Reeve Bill Dobson, held on the afternoon of Wednesday, March 27. “I want to make it clear that it

EMC News – The cutbacks at the Perth & Smiths Falls District Hospital have not been easy, but Linda Bisonette, president/CAO made the pain of this medicine a little easier to swallow when she announced the board’s approval of a projected $960,000 surplus operational budget for 2013-2014. Smiths Falls councillor Shawn Pankow applauded this news, adding Ontario Minister Deb Matthews assured him at this year’s ROMA conference that once the hospital budget was in the black funding would be available to assist in other ways. “It’s great to see a budget approved with a surplus,” Pankow remarked. The proposed budget has been submitted to the South East Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) for its approval and will cover the period from April 1, 2013 to March 31, 2014. “We will do everything in our power to make sure we meet those targets,” Bisonette stated during an interview with The Record News EMC. Should the surplus be realized it will be the first in a number of years the hospital has seen in its operational budget. All excess funds from surpluses realized will be used to settle the hospital’s accumulated debt that now sits at $7 million. This sum occurred as a result of maintaining the status quo in an era where supplies, materials and salaries were rising higher than the one and two per cent increases in funding provided by the ministry. “We have to ensure that we stay on this path,” Bisonette

EMC News – The pool at the Gallipeau Centre was filled Monday night April 8, but it wasn’t with water. Well-wishers from the town were on hand to celebrate the official AVIVA cheque presentation of $99,000 to help with the early-stage renovations as they hope to have a fully-functional pool in the months to come. Guests were treated to a silent auction where more than $1,000 was raised, as well as food and a cake.

Town has no interest in annexing Bayview Cres. By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

EMC News – Smiths Falls Mayor Dennis Staples has put into writing that he and his council have no interest in acquiring the Bayview area of Montague Township. “I had… to state, and restate Smiths Falls’ position to talking about terms,” Staples told council last week, especially regarding annexation. “I would be very happy to write a letter that

Smiths Falls has no plans to annex any land in Montague, unless it is requested. We have no interest or desire to annex Bayview Crescent. I’ll write a letter and make it perfectly clear.” Staples pointed to the deal that brought Walmart to Smiths Falls, since that involved a similar annexation agreement between the town and Rideau Lakes Township, or another big land deal that saw the OPP’s eastern regional headquarters

set up near the Smiths FallsMontague border. “When these things come along, they are not initiated by a municipality,” said Staples. “They are initiated by a third party.” However, he hastened to add that he did not rule out any requests for service in the future for the Bayview area. Staples drafted a letter to Montague council on Wednesday, April 3, following a report

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ditch first. She held her hand down towards me and helped me onto the side of the road. I could see Joyce staring at me. I followed the direction of her eyes. Great streams of green dye were running from the home made blouse, into the white hand-me-down skirt! I was starting to look like a patchwork quilt. I looked down the road to see if I could catch up to Marguirite. She was just a dot on the Northcote side road. There was nothing to do but head for home. By the time I hit the kitchen door, my clothes were dry and the green water mixed with weeds from the ditch and mud from the road, were caked to my legs. Only then did I burst into tears. Mother stripped my clothes, and even though it wasn’t yet Saturday night, I was given a bath in the copper tub before supper. All the time I lamented about the girl I hated with a passion. And once again Mother called my ordeal character building. I told Mother, after my ordeal with bad Marguirite, I thought I had had just about all the character building I could stand in one lifetime! • Advertising rates and terms and conditions are according to the rate card in effect at time advertising published. • The advertiser agrees that the publisher shall not be liable for damages arising out of errors in advertisements beyond the amount charged for the space actually occupied by that portion of the advertisement in which the error occurred, whether such error is due to negligence of its servants or otherwise... and there shall be no liability for non-insertion of any advertisement beyond the amount charged for such advertisement. • The advertiser agrees that the copyright of all advertisements prepared by the Publisher be vested in the Publisher and that those advertisements cannot be reproduced without the permission of the Publisher. • The Publisher reserves the right to edit, revise or reject any advertisement.

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

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

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

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

First Birthday – First Visit to a Dental Professional The Canadian Dental Association recommends that babies see a dental health professional by age one This helps to spot potential problems at early stages when treatment is most simple. Baby teeth can decay quickly, and are very important for a child’s speech and nutrition. Having your little one see a dentist early helps to develop a worry-free dental relationship, and save money. This is a great time to ask any questions about how and when to clean baby’s mouth, what are tooth-friendly snacks, and talk about fluoride.

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

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

Be careful on area waterways EMC News – Warmer temperatures and the potential for some significant precipitation are being forecast for this week. Should this occur, flows may increase quickly in some of the larger rivers such as the Clyde, Indian and Fall Rivers within the Mississippi Valley watershed. Flows within the Carp River watershed have been declining quickly but will increase again should the forecasted rainfall occur. No significant flooding is anticipated at this time, however, we encourage residents to continue to warn their children about the dangers of playing on or near ice covered surfaces or fast flowing water in ditches and smaller creeks. Ice conditions on area waterways will continue to deteriorate rapidly with the warmer weather and area residents are advised that no one should be venturing out onto ice covered waterways. Daily water levels and flows are available on the MVC website at www.mvc.on.ca.

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

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

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

 

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

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

Start of MLB season sparks many good memories

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

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

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

R0011994257_0328

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Car Counselor BRIAN TURNER

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

My Take MARK HASKINS

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

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

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

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

EMC News – The Lanark County Maple producers of the Lanark and District Association gathered March 2 at the annual tap-out at the Thompson family farm in Clayton. Celebrating 170 years, Ray Thompson and Wayne Thompson and their families were busy preparing for the big event that saw hundreds of people flock to the farm for the day-long festivities. Guests enjoyed pancake and maple sausage breakfast, complete with home made, Lanark County syrup; sleigh rides, maple taffy making in the snow, and the Kettle Boys also made an appearance. Above, sisters Lisa and Leann Thompson sell their family’s products on site.

Communities come together to honour those killed at work memorial plaque unveiled. “It’s been a long time coming,” said Rodford’s son, Gary. Gary was just a young boy on May 12, 1949 when news reached his home in Smiths Falls that his father had been killed while working on a bridge in Vaudreuil, Que., for the Canadian Pacific Railway. Newspaper reports state that the local rail man was killed when a second section of a passenger train struck him. He left behind a wife and four children who would struggle to make ends meet in his absence. The financial loss was not as difficult as the void left from losing their father. Even though he worked away from home many days Gary remembers, “It was always a great thing when he was home for the weekend.” He decided to have his father’s name added to the national day of mourning plaque in Smiths Falls to honour his dad’s memory and the sacrifice their family made to the rail.

EMC Events – Everyone deserves to come home after a long day’s work. Some never get there. It is for these souls that residents in the Smiths Falls and Perth area will gather at their respective monuments Monday, April 29 to honour the lives of those lost as a result of workplace accidents, and renew their vow that it will never happen again. “It’s a day to honour the people who got killed or injured while doing their job,” said Danny Whitmore, local organizer. All are welcome to attend the noon hour service on Monday April 29 in Perth near the Crystal Palace. Then the 7 p.m. service takes place in Smiths Falls beside the Parks Canada offices on Beckwith Street. Both services will be taking place rain or shine and some seating will be provided for those in need. This year’s service will include the traditional address from a member of the Canadian Labour Congress and the mayor. In Smiths Falls family members of Robert David Rodford will be attending for the first time to see their family member’s

Rodford and his wife will be in attendance at the April 29 service alongside a handful of family members. “I think it’s nice for a family to honour their parent in some way,” Whitmore said. The Canadian Labour Congress doesn’t search out names to place on local plaques across the country, but does invite individuals wishing to have their loved one remembered in this way to contact them. Those wanting a family member to be added to the Perth or Smiths Falls memorial can call Whitmore at 613-283-4834 to learn more. The National Day of Mourning has taken place every April 28 across Canada since 1984. This date was selected to mark the 70th anniversary of the first Ontario Workers’ Compensation Act being approved. The Day of Mourning was enshrined in national legislation by an Act of Parliament on Feb. 1, 1991.

Robert David Rodford was killed while working with the CPR in Quebec in 1949. The Smiths Falls man will be honoured with a plaque on the National Day of Mourning monument on Beckwith Street this April 29. Submitted photo

Linda Bisonette, president and CAO of the Perth & Smiths Falls District Hospital, sat down with the Record News to talk about the facilityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ nances.

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

had in a new hospital that community dollars helped to construct. The town contributed about $800,000 towards the capital campaign which saw the complete redevelopment of the Smiths Falls hospital site. Both Hendriks and Bisonette acknowledged the incredible support the hospital receives from their communities and foundations, adding more work will need to be done in the near future in order to retire the debt incurred by construction overages from the redevelopment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll eventually have to go on a capital campaign again,â&#x20AC;? Bisonette said. Confirmed numbers on the total cost of the redevelopment are not available yet, but councillors did learn the shortfall could be between $7 million and $7.5 million with the ministry able to kick in a little less than half through recognition of the increase in operational costs of the new facility. More details on the new capital campaign will be available as the launch nears. Bisonette encouraged residents who have concerns to call the hospital administration. Presentations were made in Smiths Falls on April 8 and at Perth council April 9. Bisonette said she would have liked to have had more public consultations Capital campaign relaunch throughout the last year, but felt hospiThose around the council horseshoe tal staff were in a better position to anlast Monday evening relayed the pub- swer questions now that a plan has been licâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s frustration that any cutbacks were set and is in motion.

Cutbacks The road to surplus was paved with a number of difficult changes to the hospital. Bisonette said they were able to address their staffing reduction targets through early retirement and voluntary exit programs, while admitting the organization has lost a lot of corporate knowledge with this move. Beyond that the hospital was able to accommodate all 14 projected layoffs through reassignment except for one who chose to resign. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not easy to make these changes but it had to be done,â&#x20AC;? Bisonette said. Changes such as a four-hour per-day reduction in nursing care hours in the emergency room (from 60 to 56 hours) with these hours taking place during the daytime. Bisonette emphasized there will always be at least two nursing staff in the ER at all times. She added the hospital executive continues to monitor this change to see if it has any impact on emergency room wait times. Another change in the emergency department is the centralization of emergency operations after 6 p.m. and on weekends to the Smiths Falls site. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Certainly if an individual presents in Perth they will be transported by ambulance to the Smiths Falls site,â&#x20AC;? Bisonette assured councillors at this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting. She explained the most common cause for an emergency surgery within the hospital is due to C-sections so it made sense to keep ER operations in Smiths Falls where obstetrics is housed. Other changes took place in maintenance where crews are now working on a staggered shift schedule to ensure clean-up is available 24/7 within the hospital while reducing overtime. In an effort to reduce costs the hospital has looked at available technology and community services to allow them to release patients after day surgery and bring the number of patients waiting for long-term care services (ALC) from about 30 to nine in just under a year. For this, Bisonette credits the local doctors who have stepped up and worked handin-hand with the board to see the six per cent reduction in each department is realized. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The doctors have really done their part in turning this around for us,â&#x20AC;? she said. The use of technology has made it possible for the health care facility to close six beds at each site. Bisonette said the decision to close the beds was made after a thorough review and in recognition that the hospital continued to operate with the same bed count as it did prior to amalgamation in 1994. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hospitals are not measured by the number of beds they have anymore,â&#x20AC;? Bisonette added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will easily manage with these 85 beds.â&#x20AC;? She noted in the 1980s the hospital had 132 beds, which increased to 200 before the merge in 1994. After the merger this number then dropped to 97 where it stayed until just this past year. Changing the culture of hospital care is something communities like Smiths Falls and Perth and the entire province are having thrust upon them due to the accepted realities of health care costs and its projection to increase substan-

EMC Events – The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 95 was the place to be for anyone looking for a purse on the weekend. More than 300 women came to the third annual Purse Event in search of great bargains and even better deals. There were more than 800 purses up for grabs. Organized by Tammy’s Nail Salon, it served as a fundraiser for the Smiths Falls Public Library’s summer literacy tutoring program as well as Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lanark County.

was a positive meeting,” said Staples. Staples said that Smiths Falls was still open to negotiations. “Our door is open,” he said. “We want an agreement that Smiths Falls council and Montague can agree on.” During a later press conference in his office, Staples reiterated that, for land to be annexed, “there has to be two willing municipalities,” like the land swaps that go on all the time between, say, Carleton Place and its neighbours Mississippi Mills and Beckwith Township. “We can’t go out and redraw our boundaries, willy-nilly,” said Staples. Referring back to the Walmart arrangement, he noted that that deal for water and sewer service

was even more onerous since it involved discussions not only between two municipalities, but two counties as well. The plans for Villa Montague hit a snag at Montague Township council earlier this year when all but Dobson voted against the development over concerns that the Bayview area would be lost to Smiths Falls. “This is my own opinion,” Staples stressed. “(But) one of the sticking points for Montague is that (Smiths Falls) had a plan to assume the Bayview properties. We have no plan. It became clear to me, would it be helpful to put in writing… that we have no plan to annex this property.” “I don’t know where this is going,” said Staples of the Villa Montague debate. “Our council is quite interested in an agreement.”

Town awaits ‘crucial’ information from province, stalling budget process By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

EMC News – Smiths Falls is waiting for some important information from Queen’s Park before it can move forward with its own budget process. “We continue to wait for a

critical piece of information from the Ministry of Finance,” said Mayor Dennis Staples at the town council meeting on Tuesday, April 2. The information that Staples and his colleagues are waiting for pertains to the Ontario Mu-

nicipal Partnership Fund, essentially transfer payments from the province to municipalities. “It is a significant matter for the town,” said Staples, though he reported that he had heard that the information should be forthcoming in a couple of weeks.

While the Wynne government is working on its first budget later this month, Staples said that he was pleased with the details of skills training in last month’s federal budget. “This current skills shortage (that) this country finds itself in

will get worse,” said Staples. Staples saw for himself one way in which training money is helping local people find work through training. During a recent announcement at Willis College, Staples spoke with a Californiabased businessman who had Wil-

lis students lined up to take up jobs with his firm, upon graduation. “He was glad that there were supports for this,” said Staples. “He couldn’t do this within his organization. He was impressed with the quality of education.”

Upgrades coming to GWM hospital site the Smiths Falls Site has recently undergone a major redevelopment, the grant monies will be mainly focused on projects at the GWM Site.” He also confirmed that a total of 16 projects have been put on the hospital’s “to do” list. He outlined a few of the projects slated to be completed at the GWM Site in the coming fiscal year such as: • renovate patient bathrooms; • new flooring in patient care areas; • upgrades to air handling units. “This is not only an investment in our hospital, but in our healthcare community. We are grateful to the South East LHIN for recognizing our needs,” stated Linda Bisonette. Hospitals can use their HIRF grant to develop approved minor capital projects that extend the useful life, or result in an improvement in the quality or func-

EMC News - Close to $269,816 will be spent at the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital thanks to the Hospital Infrastructure Renewal Fund (HIRF) dollars allocated by the South East Local Health Integration Network. HIRF grants were established to assist public hospitals in renewing their healthcare facilities. The HIRF grant supplements a hospital’s existing building renewal program and helps healthcare facilities address renewal needs on a priority basis. “HIRF grants are essential in maintaining the physical structures of our hospital sites. The management team and staff are always generating ideas for ways to improve the physical plant,” said Linda Bisonette, president and CEO. These infusions of cash for building upgrades and repairs are investments in patient care. Brian Allen, Vice President, Finance & Support Services stated, “As

EMC News - Electric cars are a complex mass of engines, battery boosters and custom pieces, yet the creation process for such a vehicle has been driven by another source entirely for local native, Erin Merkley and her team from the University of Waterloo: “Our team runs on coffee,” she said. Merkley and her five teammates are now preparing for the second judging in a three-year North American competition hosted by GM this May in Arizona. Merkley will be proud to see her engine mount design put to the test during the two-week judging starting around May 12. “It’s kind of cool to design something and see it put to use,” she said. The second-year mechanical engineering student spent about three months custom designing and installing the mount to hold the gearbox and engine. Having the opportunity to see a project go from concept to design to operation has been an incredible learning curve for the lone female team member who noticed her design work blossom since joining the team for her co-op credit last fall. “I knew nothing about cars in September,” Merkley added. “It’s really, you learn as you go.” The challenge for all 15 university teams (two of which are from Canada) was to take a GM Malibu and customize it to create a hybrid electric vehicle for a chance at a trophy, prize money and something far more valuable for upcoming graduates. “There are definitely jobs on the line,” Merkley said. The University of Waterloo team is going into this second competition having placed third overall during the design judging in year one. Their hope is to match or exceed this standing in May when judges will expect to see 65 per cent of the vehicle complete and ready for an exhaustive safety check. “We’re hoping for full hybrid operation,” she said. Merkley is hoping her team’s ambitious plans to showcase a Malibu with a 280 horsepower engine that is capable of electric operation by the end of next year will impress the judges and the executives at GM who

The Waterloo team will be focusing these last few weeks on developing a custom sub frame for the vehicle and wrestling to bring the project under the 5,000 lb weight restriction. The entire experience has been eye opening for Merkley who now hopes to continue working in the automotive sector after graduation. Merkley was raised in Smiths Falls and graduated from St. John Catholic High School in Perth in 2010. Last summer she worked at the Perth Soap Factory.

Residents of the Town of Smiths Falls are invited to submit nominations for the “2012 Citizen of the Year”. Nominations will be accepted by the undersigned until Wednesday, April 24, 2013.

Looking Back 100 YEARS AGO - APRIL 10, 1913

A new C.N.R. engine was put on the construction work between here and Portland on Tuesday. Mr. Marcus Cornblatt was most painfully injured on Tuesday evening, the result of a fall from his bicycle. He was going at a pretty good rate down Beckwith street and in turning up Water street lost control of his wheel. He ran into a big telephone pole and was violently thrown to the ground. The street sweeper has been out for the past few days and Beckwith street is nice to look at. There probably is nothing like it in any town in this country. 50 YEARS AGO – APRIL 11, 1963 Russell L. Kinkaid was selected as Citizen of the Year late yesterday afternoon during a meeting of the special committee of the Chamber of Commerce established to make such a selection. Mr. Kinkaid was chosen from 10 highly-qualified citizens. Mr. Kinkaid, who is chairman of the Industrial Commission and past president of the Chamber of Commerce, will be presented with a special Award of Merit citation by the Eastern Ontario Development Association during the annual meeting of EODA in Ottawa next Monday.

The Iron Lady leaves behind a divisive legacy

The first split in recent years between the Public School Board and the 48-member teaching staff was revealed on Tuesday evening when the Teachers’ Association rejected the new salary schedule adopted by the Board on March 20. The Board had offered the teachers an across-the-board increase of $100 per year. The teachers have asked for $300.

EMC Editorial - Even in death, Margaret Thatcher still manages to divide people. It really says something when people gather in public places in Derry, Northern Ireland, and Leeds and Brixton in England, and Glasgow, Scotland, to celebrate your death. Buried in the news reports this week came word that she was to be cremated. She was probably aware that, were she buried, her grave would become the opposite of Jim Morrison and Karl Marx’s final resting places and would attract negativity. Her Irish counterpart, Charlie Haughey, who died in 2006, was buried, and a YouTube video surfaced some years ago of an irate Irishman literally dancing on Haughey’s grave. She did what she thought was right, but never, ever could she admit that she had been wrong. As Brian Mulroney himself said this week, he told Thatcher, in no uncertain terms, that she was placing Britain “on the wrong side of history” by opposing his drive for sanctions against the apartheid government of South Africa. Mulroney, let’s be fair, took a principled stand against apartheid. She was wrong, but never, ever would she admit it. When Thatcher took office in 1979, only one in seven children in Great Britain lived in poverty. By the early 1980s, that number had risen to one in three. Thatcher supported the murderous thug General Augusto Pinochet in Chile. Her policies destroyed coal mining communities in

25 YEARS AGO - APRIL 13, 1988 A shortage of chronic care beds at the Smiths Falls Community Hospital is forcing patients into the hallways and the cancelation of surgery. The Lanark Flyers may think twice next time before starting down the road towards the Hardy Cup. The Flyers, eastern Ontario’s representatives in the first round of the Hardy Cup trail, had their season end abruptly last Tuesday night after only eight games were played and $30,000 spent. Due to a shortage of teams the Eastern Ontario Senior Hockey League suspended operations for one year. 10 YEARS AGO – APRIL 9, 2003 Visitors are being allowed in, but they have to make it through a screening process first. The Rideau Regional Centre in Smiths Falls is now following screening processes to prevent Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) from making its way into the centre. A group of Montague advisory committee members have returned from taking a close look at Russell Middle School and like what they see. On the cusp of getting their own elementary school, a half-dozen members of the Montague school advisory committee recently toured the newly constructed school southeast of Ottawa and were impressed, according to school principal Rick Gorman.

DESMOND DEVOY Des Says Yorkshire and elsewhere. And her belligerent and patronizing attitude towards the Irish prolonged The Troubles in Northern Ireland. According to the BBC, as she stood outside No. 10 Downing Street in May 1979, she quoted St. Francis of Assisi: “Where there is discord, may we bring harmony... And where there is despair, may we bring hope.” If only she had taken these words to heart. She came to power after the 1978 Winter of Discontent, when strikes crippled the country, and the dead went unburied. The nationalized British Telecom took months to deliver you a telephone if you needed one. In fairness to Thatcher, her Euro-skepticism would prove correct in years to come, as the current Greek crisis has underlined the problems with the Euro currency, and the British pound remains removed from the mess. But at the same time, her form of hypercapitalism resulted in a lot of deregulation and laissez-faire economics - resulting in the near collapse of the markets in 2008, and the resulting fallout we have felt since then. Britain’s hard-left Morning Star called her the “free market fanatic who sowed the seeds of today’s crisis.” (The Daily Mail, however, called her “The woman who saved Britain.”)

Though she often talked up her working class roots, growing up above her father’s greengrocer’s store, she was no friend of the working man and woman. She didn’t promote women or women’s rights. The late Hugo Young, quoted in The Guardian, wrote that “she became harder than hard.” But, in private, she could be human. In his 1991 biography, Margaret Thatcher: The Woman Within, Andrew Thomson revealed that she looked up from writing her Christmas cards in 1984 and asked him, “We are doing the right thing with the miners?” Deric Henderson, the Press Association’s Ireland editor, wrote in the Irish Independent this week that he remembered her being “visibly upset,” at a church service in the aftermath of the IRA’s Remembrance Day bombing in Enniskillen, County Fermanagh, in 1987. “Apart from the day she left Downing Street for good (in 1990), it was the only time I witnessed her show emotion.” It could not have been easy to have been a woman in the man’s world of British politics. She needed that iron will to succeed. Maybe it was not in her to be vulnerable, or emotional or even cry. But to what great end did this serve her or her people? Her life reminds me of lines from the great William Butler Yeats’ poem “Easter 1916” “That woman’s days were spent /In ignorant good-will/Her nights in argument/Until her voice grew shrill...Too long a sacrifice/Can make a stone of the heart. O when may it suffice?”

Giving youth a louder voice

Repairs must be made at south unit: visitor writes DEAR EDITOR: How many years has it been since the Smiths Falls Public Hospital was closed? I visit your town twice a year and each time (spring and fall) the sight remains in its dreadful state. I have fond memories of your town, as I grew up there. I don’t understand that your Town Council would allow it to keep on deteriorating. When it was not restored at the time of its sale, it should have been torn down or restored to a useful building – eg. a nursing home, apartment or retirement units – a building the town could be proud of. The location of Smiths Falls is ideal and picturesque with the beautiful Rideau attracting many tourists by boat and car. Why has this one building not been given the Town’s attention – torn down or restored? It is certainly a blight in that area of the town. Neighbouring towns like Perth, Carleton Place and Merrickville do not seem to have the problem. Does Smiths Falls have any plans to do something with this site? I hope so! Interested and concerned, Sincerely, Joan Sandford, Barrie, Ont. P.S. Hopefully, other residents or visitors will have comments.

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Whitens have an amazing railroading history here in town. The final chapter of that remarkable story closed earlier this year with the passing of Wade Whiten. He died peacefully at home on Saturday, Feb. 23 at the age of 59. Whiten was born in Smiths Falls and grew up on 4 Street in Atironto, Montague Township, where his mother still lives. He started as a railroader at the age of 19, a job he held right up until his retirement in 2010. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pass Grade 12,â&#x20AC;? said Brent Whiten, Wadeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother, during an interview at the Record Newsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; last week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Instead, he followed in Dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s footsteps,â&#x20AC;? he said, remembering their father, William Douglas Whiten. Ever since Wadeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great grandfather, George Alfred Whiten drove a stagecoach before coming over from England, the Whiten sons have worked on the railroad. The tracks ran through their blood. When Wade first started his work he was put in the roundhouse where trains were maintained. Shortly after, he became a conductor - a position he held until his retirement. The railroad life wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t an easy one â&#x20AC;&#x201C; George Alfred Whiten, his great grandfather, died on the job when he was hit by a train, but Wade was a hard worker with a big heart. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was always helpful,â&#x20AC;? said Brent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Call Wade and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be there.â&#x20AC;? The last passenger train through the Smiths Falls CN station was in 1979, a day that Wade would have experienced firsthand. The rail tracks still, to this day, lead to Carleton Place and onwards to Arnprior, but are no longer in use. The station, at 90 William St. W., was preserved, and is now the home of the Railway Museum of Eastern Ontario, though several rail utility buildings have been removed along the route. By 2010, Wade had had enough of the railroader life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a tough job,â&#x20AC;? Brent expressed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was nice to be retired.â&#x20AC;? During his retirement Wade spent time with his family and friends. During his drives through town Brent said his brother would always point his thumb and forefinger in greeting to him. But Wadeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last Friday alive was different. That day, Wade waved to his brother,

Summer festival line-up firms up in preparation for July event By STACEY ROY sroy@perfprint.ca

EMC Events – Families near and far are invited to this year’s Rideau Rural Roots Festival: a history-inspired celebration of Smiths Falls and its people. The July 20-21, 2013 festival in Lower Reach Park offers a diverse schedule of events for the entire family to enjoy, but with one aim in mind – to pay tribute to the story of our community that has been, is and will be. “This is all about our history and our history is our roots,” explains Jim MacPherson, member of this year’s festival committee. A number of cultural information tables and stage presentations will be on site to introduce all festival goers to the various cultures that today make their home in Smiths Falls. This includes a Dutch table, Cuba table and Chinese table where information and artifacts of the country will be on display for all to enjoy. The learning continues with Luc Lalande and his 3D printer he will have set up on site. The Ottawa-area entrepreneur has been working with a local businessman to introduce a 3D printer club to the community. This printer allows its users to take an idea from the paper draft to the three-dimensional

Deputy Doodle world with little cost. More information on this exciting new club for youth and adults in the community will be available at the festival. From new ideas to old world communication, local artist, John Levatte will be at the festival hosting a two-day, story-writing workshop at the festival. On Saturday visitors will be asked to stop by Levatte’s booth and give him ideas, key words and themes for a story. Then on Sunday the local author will take those nuggets of information and show the audience how to weave them into a story.

“I think it will be quite humourous,” MacPherson said. The demonstrations and stage performances will be sure to get visitors up on their feet. On Saturday at 3:30 p.m. Zendragon martial arts studio on Chambers Street will be holding a demonstration in the park. A busy schedule of children’s entertainers including Lil John, Deputy Doodle, and the Puppet Tamer Tim Holland will fill up the two-days in the children’s tent with a variety of characters taking to the stage and walking the grounds of the festival all weekend. Also on at the park that weekend will be local actors from the Smiths Falls Station Theatre’s production of Polyanna (opening Aug. 8). “They will have folks walking around in costume handing out information regarding their show,” MacPherson explains. Children’s actors will welcome families to join them on the Healey Bus shuttle to the Russell Street Village area where more on-street activities will be happening. “We’re trying to bring people downtown,” MacPherson said. The bus will also be making scheduled stops at the Giant Tiger mews on Chambers Street before returning to the festival grounds.

Local musician to join band for live TV performance EMC Events - From practicing at home to the thrill of the live stage, The Jeffery Brothers band will have adrenaline coursing through their veins on April 12. The twin brother duo from Midland, Ont. will be performing on APTN’s Arbor Live, a music and variety show hosted by rock guitarist Stevie Salas. It’ll be the band’s first live performance, to which Nick Jeffery, a Smiths Falls resident, says he and his brother, Josh, are “excited about it. It’s not every day you get to do TV, even live playing on TV.” Although this may be the band’s live debut, they’re certainly no stranger to the rock scene. In fact, they’re old veterans. They formed their band in 2003 after jamming together in high school. Inspired by their father, a guitar player, he encouraged his boys to take up music, but their adulation extended to the likes of Chuck Berry, the Young brothers from AC/DC and The Rolling Stones.

After firing off a bunch of demos at a local studio, the brothers began nabbing gigs and churning out more records. Their EP Splitting Headache, sold over 10,000 units and spawned the single Rock It Out, which was featured on TSN and OLN. Their follow up LP, Cuttin’ Loose, recorded in Montreal and New York City, was an even bigger success. Hit songs such as I Wanna Rock and the album’s namesake have been featured on MTV’s The Hard Times of RJ Berger, Degrassi High, the Lifetime movie Drew Peterson: Untouchable, and motion pictures One for the Money and Mardi Gras: Spring Break. Even though the Jeffery Brothers’ music has been heard on Britain’s radio waves for years, the clout that comes with performing on stage in front of a live audience thrills them. But mostly, they’re hoping to use the footage in their upcoming DVD on the history of their band. The Jeffery Brothers can be seen on APTN’s Arbor Live this Friday at 8 p.m. EST.

Amazing Race Those who desire to a little more activity than dancing can challenge themselves to the festival’s first Crime Stoppers Amazing Race! A maximum of 10 teams of two people will be selected for this two-day race to the finish. Participants will start at the park with their first clue and move through the town on foot guided only by the clue given and some helpful hinters along the way. The last two teams on Sunday will race to the park where the first one to cross the finish line will be crowned the winners. “You may become totally lost,” MacPherson said. He did, however, offer some advice for would-be participants when he suggested everyone read Glen Lockwood’s Smiths Falls book and Valerie Hudson’s Our Town book. “Some of the answers are in her book,” he confirmed. Please see future issues of the Record News for more details on how to apply for the Crime Stoppers Amazing Race or log on to the website: www.rideaururalroots.com that will soon be live.

On the main stage festival organizers have secured a diverse range of entertainers. On Saturday night (5 p.m.) rock band, Second Sight will take the stage to set the tempo and get every moving their torso.

Also on the main stage will be Freddy and the Dreamers (forerunners to The Beatles) Peter Eastmure and the Welldiggers Band, Endless Summer-Beach Boys Tribute, Walk Like a Man-Four Seasons Tribute, the Doherty Brothers, Clyne Brothers, The Barley Shakers and Lyon Street Celtic Band and Latin band, the Cesar Ricardo Trio.

Shockingly good news as service clubs win defibrillators By DESMOND DEVOY and PAGE TAYLOR desmond.devoy@metroland.com

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sharing the wealth, then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spreading the gift of life. Scott Reid got a chance to do both last week, when several area civic groups became the first recipients of the Canadian Heartland Community AED Challenge last week, making their communities a safer place to save a life. The AEDs (Automatic External Defibrillators) will also find their way, appropriately enough, into the constituency offices of the man who made the dispensing of the machines possible, MP Scott Reid. AEDs have the potential to save a life when someone is having a heart attack, allowing passersby to administer help until paramedics arrive, and they are now installed on the walls of the offices Reid shares with MPP Randy Hillier in Carleton Place, Perth, and Napanee. The new AEDs were given to the Smiths Falls and Perth branches of the Royal Canadian Legion, as well as the Township of Lanark Highlands, the Perth Golf Club, and the Smiths Falls Civitan Club. The challenge put forward to interested groups asks them to raise $750 towards each AED, which is then matched by Reid. Since 2001, Reid has used his pay raises - $250,000 so far â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to a number of charitable causes aimed at increasing heart attack survival rates. In 2010, he helped bring CPR training to local schools, like Carleton Place High School. The money has also gone to place AEDs into police cars, seniors centre, arenas, and fire halls.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of money in one respect, not a lot of money in another sense,â&#x20AC;? said Reid, during the ceremony at his Bridge Street constituency office in Carleton Place on Friday, April 4. Reid said he was glad that the AEDs were getting out even further into the community, especially into the arenas, into â&#x20AC;&#x153;every single arena where hockey is played because it is ground zero for heart attacks.â&#x20AC;? The MP added that he was glad to see local civic groups taking ownership of the issue and rising to the challenge. Sandra Clarke knows just how crucial it is to have AEDs available, since heart disease has touched her family deeply, with both her father and stepfather dying from sudden heart attacks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh my God, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to die when you have a heart attack,â&#x20AC;? Clarke said when she discovered that, thanks to these devices, a heart attack was not a death sentence. Clarke is the executive director of the ACT Foundation, which also seeks to bring CPR training to every high school across the country. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Schools love the program, but they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the resources,â&#x20AC;? said Clarke. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In 2003, we went to Scott and said we want to bring this to the area.â&#x20AC;? Reidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reply? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to make it happen,â&#x20AC;? said Reid. About 300 training mannequins have been dispatched to the cause at 10 high schools throughout the riding, with their attendant training covered off too. In 2010, training in the use of AEDs was added to the curriculum. About 1,200 students a year get trained now in CPR and AED training.

Lanark, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington MPP Randy Hillier, Carol Levere of the Smiths Falls Royal Canadian Legion, MP Scott Reid, and Ted Moss, ďŹ rst vice president of the Perth Royal Canadian Legion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They will not be afraid to pull that defibrillator off of the wall and use it,â&#x20AC;? said Clarke. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What you are doing, it has such longevity. If you give the resources to people who will do the training, they will continue that on. What greater gift can you give? They (those trained) are in a spot to save someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lifeâ&#x20AC;Śthey become so modest, it becomes a social skill.â&#x20AC;? Now that the civic groups have, or soon will have, the AEDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in operation, the race is now on to make sure that all the right people get trained. Walter Trenholme of the Smiths Falls Civitan Club said that the AED would be mounted on the wall in the Civitan hall, home to a great many community events. There will be two training sessions for the device to accommodate

the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 20 to 25 members since the classes can only accommodate 10 to 12 students at a time. Carol Levere of the Smiths Falls branch of the Royal Canadian Legion said that, already, 10 branch members had been trained on how to use the technology, which would be installed this month. In Lanark Highlands Township, AEDs will be installed in the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seven community centres, and seven fire stations, as well as the municipal offices in Lanark village. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We would like to thank Randy and Scott for their contribution to this,â&#x20AC;? said Highlands Coun. Bob Sutcliffe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All bases are covered thanks to their organization. The care and concern by all of these people is remarkable.â&#x20AC;?

Official Plan Update/5 Year Review Responding to a Change in Provincial Legislation Please take notice that the Council of the Corporation of the Township of Rideau Lakes has decided to place an administrative hold on further review and draft document development of the Township’s Official Plan. This decision has come about as a result of a recent and unexpected Provincial legislative change which now requires a County level Official Plan. In Leeds and Grenville, until this time, there has been no County Official Plan, leaving land use planning with the local municipalities. This change in Provincial legislation means that moving forward the Township’s Official Plan must now conform to the County Official Plan. It is not anticipated the County Official Plan will be developed, approved and in place until 2015. Until that time, the specific content and scope of the County Official Plan will not be certain. Therefore, it is not certain as to what the Township’s Official Plan will need to conform to. Council believes it is financially prudent to limit the expenditure of resources on the Rideau Lakes Official Plan update until such time that the County Official Plan is approved and it is clear as to what the Rideau Lakes Official Plan will need to conform to. The Township’s Council is satisfied that in the interim the current Official Plan meets the needs of the Township’s residents. At this point in time, the development of a second draft of the Rideau Lakes Official Plan and further public meetings will be placed on hold. All information and comments received to date as well as requests for notification will be retained. When the County Official Plan is approved, work will once again continue on the development of the Rideau Lakes Official Plan. R0012015258_0404

Midget B Cubs score gold after big overtime wins at provincial championship By LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com

Play they did In their championship hunt, the Midget B Cubs gave the fans and their bench bosses more than the price of admission with a triple overtime win in the semifinals and an extra-period decision for provincial gold. “It was a stressful finish,” Robinson said, “quite a ride.” The Cubs opened the tournament

Submitted photo

The Smiths Falls Midget B Cubs were provincial gold champions last weekend after a huge tournament with six wins, including the final 1-0 overtime win against Durham West. Pictured are top, left to right: Bree Peladeau, Brittany MacGillivray, Paige Dorey; middle: Elizabeth Holmes, Annie West, McKenzie Ryan, Nicole McKenna, Katie Brady, Reba Cassell; front: Hannah Knott, Brooklyn Scott, Cassidy Nadeau, Megan McCoy, Nicole Robinson. Missing were coaches Murray Robinson, Mark MacGillivray, Walter Scott, Curtis Ryan, manager Shelley Nadeau, trainers Donna Knott and Marie Leeder. on Thursday with a 7-0 shutout over Durham West. Annie West was divine in the crease all weekend and earned her first of four shutouts. Reba Cassell led the scoring with two goals. Friday, Smiths Falls earned a 3-1 win over Norfolk and Saturday brought another shutout victory – a 4-0 decision over the Mississauga Chiefs. In the quarter-finals, Smiths Falls met Almaguin (near Parry Sound) Saturday night, in a game that was a tight-checking, physical affair. The Cubs scored early and had numerous chances but Almaguin never stopped working. The defence made some desperate stops to preserve the 1-0 victory and a well-earned berth to the semi-finals. Sunday morning, the Cubs faced Cold Creek in another fast and physical contest. Brooklyn Scott opened the scoring on a goal-mouth scramble after hard work by Bree

Peladeau and Mackenzie Ryan. Cold Creek shot back and scored the equalizer soon after. With less than two minutes remaining Elizabeth Holmes scored with help from Cassell and Katie Brady. Not to be outdone yet, Cold Creek pulled their goalie and scored with a minute left to tie the game, again forcing not one, not two, but three overtime periods. It was Cassell’s moment in the spotlight when she scored on a feed from Holmes as Smiths Falls cruised into the gold medal match against Durham West – the same team they’d defeated at the start of the tournament. The Durham West Twister had won four games to get back on track to the finals. The championship game was a well-played, tight checking affair as they traded scoring chances but the Cubs defence was at a premium. When the game ended in a scoreless deadlock, the Cubs

were back to overtime. True to form, this time in the first overtime period, Cassell was sprung loose on a quick breakout and her speed and determination were too much for the Twister. She blew in on a partial breakaway and potted another game winner for the Cubs to secure their provincial gold. Graduating players Brittany MacGillivray, Brooklyn Scott and Katie Brady celebrated their careers with the big win; something that will always be remembered, noted the coach. “It was nice for them to have a win to remember their midget hockey careers,” said Robinson. The girls also shared a tear with Nicole McKenna who lost her father Chris earlier this year. “When Nicole’s father (Chris McKenna) died a few months ago, the team rallied around her,” said Robinson. “They were very supportive. It was a tough

EMC Sports – It was a stellar kickoff, a tumultuous ride and a spectacular ending this season for a Brockville man who was in Smiths Falls this year as the head coach of the Smiths Falls Midget B Cubs. Leading a gaggle of teenage girls may be a bit of a tightrope walk to the squeamish, but for Murray Robinson, it was a season of laughter, fun, tears and oh, yes… winning. The undefeated midgets (14-0-6) were crowned the provincial champions last weekend in Ottawa, fittingly, during the IIHF Women’s World Championships, boasting a 6-0 record. “What a group… what an experience,” Robinson said. “It was the first time for provincial gold for a team of girls from Smiths Falls. “I had a tremendous year… didn’t know all of the girls when we first came together, but they all took care of each other, didn’t get down on each other, were competitive, and had a lot of fun.” Robinson asked at the beginning of the season if the girls were there to win or to have fun. Their response: “Winning is fun.” “I knew right away what kind of program to teach them,” he said. “I wanted to put something together that my daughter could have fun with and learn from.” Robinson added that he had tremendous support from his on-ice squad: assistant coaches Walter Scott and Mark MacGillivray; manager Shelley Nadeau and trainer Marie Dorey. “We had a great parent group who just let the girls play and let the coaches coach,” he said. “The SFGHA left our coaching staff to run our own program but were there in a supportive role when needed. “When you hear, ‘this is the most fun I have ever had playing hockey, Coach,’ it makes it all worthwhile. They knew how to have fun and did a lot of it, but when it was time to play - they were ready to play.”

time for her and for the team.” Robinson noted McKenna’s funeral was one of the largest ones he’s ever seen in Smiths Falls. The Cubs also formed an honour guard during the funeral service to pay tribute to a man who was a big supporter of the team. “It was pretty emotional, and when Nicole came back to play hockey the girls welcomed her back with posters up all around the ice. It was a touching scene.” Congratulations are extended to the team on their milestone achievements this season. The roster includes girls from Brockville, Maynard and the majority from Smiths Falls: goalie Annie West, defence: Brittany MacGillivray, Paige Dorey, Hannah Knott, Nicole Robinson and forwards Cassidy Nadeau, Megan McCoy, Nicole McKenna, Bree Peladeau, Mackenzie Ryan, Brooklyn Scott, Katie Brady, Elizabeth Homes and Reba Cassell. As for next year, Robinson says he’s going to retire – on a high note. His daughter Nicole is in her second last year as a midget, and Robinson says she had a hand in enticing him to the rink. “I won’t coach again,” he said. “Just one year… that was it. I want to go out on a high note. Nicole will come back next year, but I’ll just be Dad… and that’s OK.”

As an assistant captain with the expansion club, McNamee had 22 goals and 37 assists and just 16 penalty minutes in 64 games, and helped lead the Phoenix to the playoffs in their first year of operation. The QMJHL awards were handed out at a ceremony in Montreal on April 3. As expected, the club bowed out of the playoffs in four straight against the highpowered Drakkar.

Each and everyone of you have a special place in our hearts. As we move forward, Garry would have wanted us to remember him with smiles and laughter. He sure loved to tease and joke.

nation from Tom Foulkes and thank the local couple for their ongoing support of the town. “We’re certainly very fortunate to have communityminded people in our community,” Cummings said. He added, the upgrade of the track with the rubberized surface has increased the facility’s overall versatility and has made the arena a recreation service for every age group. Of the $81,000 cost to install the rubberized floor the Foulkes family has donated about $70,000 once next year’s donation is made. A donation box is located on the track near the elevators with hopes that those who use the facility will donate towards the retirement of this upgrade cost. The Smiths Falls Memorial Community Centre walking track is open daily from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. unless a special event is being held. It’s interesting to note that five laps of the track is the equivalent to one kilometer and seven laps is one mile.

EMC News – In life Pat Foulkes dedicated herself to improving the health of others. So it is fitting that one of her legacy gifts to Smiths Falls would be to ensure the arena walking track is open to those of all ages in the community. Recently, Tom Foulkes announced his commitment to donate a total of $50,000 over two years toward the cost of the rubberized flooring on the arena’s walking track. This is not the first time the Smiths Falls family has supported this cause. In fact, they made a donation of $12,000 to kick off the fundraising initiative when the rubber was put down a couple of years ago and rounded this off with another $8,000 donation last year. “It’s a wonderful track,” Foulkes said of his decision to honour his wife’s memory with the most recent donation. “She was really behind it because she was a professional health care person.” Pat Foulkes’ compassion and bedside manner were natural gifts she put to work during her successful nursing career. Her background in health care made her aware of the life-long benefits that come with continued physical fitness, and her love for her community made the local walking track project easy to believe in. “If she had one regret it’s she couldn’t use this track more,” Foulkes said. In many ways her husband said Pat wanted to give back to Smiths Falls just as the residents and her many friends had given to her during her battle with cancer. She achieved this through donations to the public library, Station Theatre, local hospital and the walking track. Smiths Falls’ Coun. Chris Cummings was on hand April 4 to formally receive the do-

Dan DeGrace memorial hockey tournament returns this weekend By STACEY ROY sroy@perfprint.ca

EMC Sports - Dan DeGraceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passion for sports and hockey continues to live on through the annual memorial hockey tournament that offers a day of fun for family and friends while providing access to physical fitness programs to area youth. The third annual Dan DeGrace Memorial Tournament is being held in Smiths Falls April 12 to 14 with this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proceeds being donated for the second year to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lanark County (BBBS). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to increase every year and give back to the community in one way or another,â&#x20AC;? explained Spencer Baker, one of a handful of DeGraceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s friends who continue to host the hockey tournament fundraiser. The support is more than appreciated by those at BBBS who used last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s donation to support their existing Go Girls and Game On programs while introducing a new summer sports program previously not available. All in all, the funds were used to support a total of about 70 Lanark County youth in accessing mentoring programs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The money was really put

to good use,â&#x20AC;? Miller added on the topic of being selected as this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recipient. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We feel very lucky.â&#x20AC;? The mentoring non-profit organization is hopeful they can bring the summer program back this summer with the support of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hockey tournament. Event organizers were pleased BBBS could meet their request to invest the funds in programs that promote physical fitness as hockey and an active lifestyle was so important to Dan. DeGraceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life was cut short in 2010 when he was killed in a car accident. He was 21 years old. DeGrace left behind many friends he made through his sports affiliations. He played for some time with the junior Athens Aeros and worked his way through the competitive minor hockey league here in Smiths Falls often earning the title of captain. Expansion plans This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hockey tournament has honoured this passion. Each year the tournament has seen growth in the number of participating teams and dollars raised. New this year, the sporting fundraiser is moving from a two-day to a three-day event and introducing a one-day fun

tournament for players 35 years old and over. Friday and Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s play is split into two competitive divisions of teams with players aged 23-28 years old taking to the ice for bragging rights. The addition of the extra day means organizers can welcome a maximum of 24 teams to take part. Spots are still available for teams to register, but must be done shortly by calling Baker at 613-876-4326 or Tye Vaillancourt at 613-206-0725. Registrations may also be emailed to dandegracemht@hotmail.ca. The tournament also welcomes new volunteers for the weekend and donations of items for prize tables. Over the years Baker has been inspired with how supportive the community has been in making the Dan DeGrace Memorial Hockey Tournament a success year after year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The community itself . . . is behind us,â&#x20AC;? he said. Once the fun on the ice has wrapped up on Saturday night all participants are invited to head down to Hanley Hall beginning at 9 p.m. for an evening of great music from River City Junction and drinks with proceeds going to BBBS. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a pretty fun weekend,â&#x20AC;? Baker said.

closures, calls for assistance, and even floods. “It is designed to promote the business of your town and drive tourists to the town,” said Ferguson. He joked that even though Smiths Falls sits in the heart of the Rideau Canal, with thousands of boaters floating by every summer, “you can’t put a sign in the water,” urging them to drop anchor and visit. “You can’t sell a secret,” he added. Other nearby municipalities, like Perth, are looking at extending free WiFi in tourist areas like Last Duel Park to let them know about the area. “This is a $2,000 investment for the town,” said Ferguson. “It is designed to be quite cost effective.” There are other uses for the app too, beyond business and tourism. “Your schools can even embrace it and have a presence within the system,” said Ferguson, adding that the even the local branch of the Civitan Club could tap into it. One of the first challenges that Ferguson put his system through was the recent World Broomball Championships, which were held at various venues in Arnprior, Beckwith Township, Carleton Place and Mississippi Mills. “People used it as an information service, these people from all over the world,” said Ferguson. “This is something we need to utilize and own...Your town is well positioned to take advantage of this.” Both Ferguson and the town are looking for quality as well as quantity.

Installing a carbonmonoxide alarm near the sleeping areas of your home will alert you to the presence of this deadly gas. It is a good idea to invest in a batteryoperated alarm that will continue to work during power failures.

EMC Business - The Town of Smiths Falls’ app will soon be workable on the new BlackBerry 10. During a presentation at Smiths Falls town council on Tuesday, April 2, Matt Ferguson of Text2 Systems revealed that while the town’s free app is available for iPhone and android devices, their technology will soon be adapted to accommodate Research in Motion’s (RIM) latest entry onto the market. “We are in the process of looking at the BlackBerry Z10,” said Ferguson. Just as RIM has gone through its own troubles lately, he admitted that “we went through some growing pains,” with the technology. He admitted that the town app’s business directory is static, though he is moving to make it more current. “There are some businesses in town that are new and are not in there, and some that are in there that have since gone out of business,” said Ferguson. “We’re discovering this in Westport and elsewhere.” He was scheduled to meet with the Smiths Falls Downtown Business Association on Tuesday, April 9 about the issue. Coun. Shawn Pankow thanked Ferguson for his presentation, but noted that town staff needs “time to make sure that the information is accurate,” that is put out by the service. “People get turned off and don’t go back,” to the app if the information, for example, leads them to the drive to a business that is closed. Ferguson pointed out that a quarterly audit service is available which will determine if businesses are still in operation. “We are striving to put all the aspects of a small community into the palm of your hand... both to residents and visitors,” said Ferguson, covering every aspect of town life like services, arts, culture, commerce, recreation, and places of worship. “It is not just information mining... you have proactive reach,” explained Ferguson. “It’s giving you the ability to reach out.” The partnership between Ferguson’s company and the town started in mid2012, and starts with someone simply texting SF to 84748. “You’ll get a nice message from the Town of Smiths Falls,” and a free app to download on to your phone. The app could change the way in which the town communicates with the public, letting them know about road

being totally inundated with people offering us all sorts of deals and packages,” said Quinn. “They are all from Toronto or the United States, and none of them are mobile.” “We work to hire locally,” said the Carleton Place-born Ferguson. He added that, of the people who use iPhones, 60 per cent are looking for local content so, if they are looking for Smiths Falls businesses, they are not looking for Kemptville or Perth businesses. According to his numbers, about 50 per cent of the population has an iPhone or similar device. “It is astounding the volume of interest,” he said.

“It (the app) will tell you, on the screen, how many people are listening,” said Ferguson. “You don’t want it to be a noise device or spam...you can say, ‘Oh, I want to listen to Carleton Place and Smiths Falls, but I don’t want to listen to Mississippi Mills.’” The app can also count the number of times that, say, an ad banner is tapped. “The accuracy of the information is a tricky one,” said Ferguson. “We are willing to work with some people in the community to refine this.” Coun. Dawn Quinn said she was glad to see a Lanark County-based company working with the town. “I own a local business and we are
