Henderson adds special award from SFDCI sports banquet

COMMUNITY

By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

EMC Sports - Before she even sets foot on the greens of the U.S. Women’s Open later this month, Brooke Henderson has already captured some impressive hardware. And that includes the Smiths Falls Golfer of the Year Award given to her at the Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute (SFDCI) annual athletics award banquet on Thursday, June 13, garnering a standing ovation from her fellow teenage athletes. “When I see this young lady march up and down the halls, whenever she’s not around the world golfing, I think of words like fierce, passion, dedication, strength,” said teacher Kristen Drouin. “She does this all at the ripe age of 15, kicking butt and taking names on the golf course.” Even at this, Drouin pointed out, Henderson still managed to win at a local science fair. While teachers frown on students texting or surfing nonacademic websites in class, Drouin admitted to a bit of online cruising herself when Henderson was up against 78 competitors in the LPGA (Ladies Professional Golf Association) qualifier in New Jersey earlier this month. “I followed her results online, even when I was supposed to be teaching class,” she laughed. In the end, Henderson tied with the best American female golfer at the university level to qualify for her first LPGA Major – the U.S. Women’s Open. On June 27, Henderson travels to Southampton, New York for the competition. But the evening wasn’t all about Henderson’s achievements, noteworthy though they were. Amazing coaching No matter what you do, don’t drop the ball. Literally or figuratively, it works as a great metaphor, both on and off the field. But SFDCI principal Gord Cooke saw one unfortunate schoolmate learn that lesson the hard way when, as a Grade 11 student himself, he tried out for his

school’s senior football team. “It was just hard go-at-it (football),” Cooke recalled. “There was none of this heads-up stuff.” He was waiting in line, all 122 lbs. of him, waiting to catch his first punt on the field, when he saw a 200 lb. player in front of him drop the ball - only to be clobbered by three tacklers and, as a result, breaking his leg. Cooke himself went on to play ball and did well, “not because I was fast, not because I was big, but because I never dropped the ball!” A hard lesson learned, but thankfully for the SFDCI kids, while there are hard knocks on the field, the coaches have a bit more finesse for the RedHawks. “Our coaches are the coolest around,” said Cooke. “We’ve got amazing coaches... they provide us with the very best program that we can offer,” drawn from both from the teaching staff and the community. Echoing the words of the famed French psychologist Emile Coue (1857-1926), whose famous mantra was “Every day, in every way, I’m getting better and better,” (lines later borrowed and paraphrased in the posthumous 1981 John Lennon song “Beautiful Boy”) coach Dan Dufort exclaimed, “We are trying to get a little bit better every year.” (Dufort was decked out in an autographed Guy Lafleur jersey. Though Lafleur is best known for his days with the Montreal Canadiens, Quebecker Dufort was wearing a vintage Quebec Nordiques jersey, which Lafleur signed in deference to his two seasons with the team. The assembly was a sea of hockey jerseys, plus a few English soccer jerseys, in keeping with the evening’s dress code. Chicago Blackhawks fans proudly wore their jerseys after their team had beaten the Boston Bruins 4-3 in triple overtime the night before.) “Welcome to another night where we celebrate sportsmanship the RedHawk way,” said Cooke. “(This year) we have risen above and gotten better.”

Lisa McLenaghan This amazing Grades 1 and 2 teacher at Maple Grove Public School was honoured with a Directorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Extra Mile Award for her caring and supportive attitude toward a young boy who recently lost his father to a tragic car accident. McLenaghan felt for the student when she learned his only Christmas wish in 2012 was to â&#x20AC;&#x153;have his daddy back.â&#x20AC;? To ease the boyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pain, she organized a fundraiser which helped his family at Christmas, the first since his father died in September. What was initially anticipated as a small effort, to collect some clothes and a few gifts to put under the tree, snowballed into something much greater. In the two weeks leading up to December 25, supporters collected seven extra-large bags full of toys, eight extra-large bags full of clothing donations, a basket full of groceries from the Your Independent Grocer in Carleton Place, a turkey dinner donated by a butcher in Almonte, $1,200 in gift cards, a voucher to pay for the boyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother to take her G1 driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s test, a gift certificate for a driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s education course, and enough cash to buy the boyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother a used car. The Christmas packages were delivered on Dec. 24 through the assistance of the OPP.

He has coached senior girls basketball â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and occasionally other school teams â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for 11 years at Char-Lan. For nine of the past 11 years he has led the senior girls team to the Eastern Ontario Secondary Schools Athletic Association (EOSSAA) Championship at the A level. His teams have been to the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations (OFSAA) Championship for five of those years. The senior girls team won OFSAA silver in 2009 and consolation gold in 2010. During his time at Char-Lan he has also coached junior girls basketball, as well as senior and junior boys basketball, in select years. He runs a Monday night basketball skills clinic at the high school enjoyed by about 20 students from Grades 6 to 12. The owner of Sweet Tooth Bakery in Lancaster also served as a basketball referee for 42 years, and coached competitive basketball with the Cornwall United County Lions for 30 years.

Local business owner closes Leacock Tours after 40 years Retirement party in Toledo June 29 to benefit Canadian Cancer Society By ASHLEY KULP akulp@perfprint.ca

EMC Business â&#x20AC;&#x201C; After 40 years of travelling the globe with her business, Leacock Tours, Mary Lou Leacock is putting away her passport. The 87-year-old recently made the decision to close her Jasper business, established in 1973, which offered group air and bus travel around Canada, U.S. and the world. She recently underwent surgery for cancer and with failing eyesight, she decided it was time to move on. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Leacock Tours and her retirement, Leacock is invited friends, family and clients to the Toledo Royal Canadian Legion branch on Saturday, June 29 from 1 to 5 p.m. Music and dancing is set to begin at 1 p.m., provided by Dennis Whitteker and his band This Old Heart and Country Music. While there is no charge for the afternoon, which includes a luncheon at 4 p.m., Leacock will be accepting donations for the Canadian Cancer Society. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It (party) is a way to thank everyone for 40 years,â&#x20AC;? she said, noting that she hopes many come out to share memories of their favourite trips and well wishes. It was Leacockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dear friend Donna Healey who suggested she try running her own tour business after Leacock had expertly planned

a bus tour on June 23, 1973 for the Grenville County Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Institute, where she served as president for 16 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was a good friend and such a nice person and so helpful,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If she hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t encouraged me, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if I would have gone ahead with it (business).â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d never been on a bus in my life and the only place Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been was the Expo in Montreal,â&#x20AC;? Leacock admitted. Born in Bennettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lake near Perth, the mother of seven daughters with late husband Arthur had previously been working as a demonstrator of products in local grocery stores for different companies. After obtaining her operating license, Leacock took the plunge into the travel business. She relished the process of planning and booking the vacations and always accompanied clients on the tours. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because it was my own company, I could choose places where I was interested in going,â&#x20AC;?

as close to home as Niagara Falls, or to destinations such as Florida (where offered vacations each winter) or Hawaii. Leacock noted sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seen a dramatic difference in the cost of vacations throughout the years as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I could do a 10-day trip for $299.

Training centre offers personalized education solutions for adults EMC Business – The help is there, but those who need it do not know where to find us or know that we exist. That’s often the story we hear by people who have search for the Adult Learning & Training Centre (ALTC) and have found it, tucked away in the back corner of 52 Abbott St. North in Smiths Falls. The ALTC offers upgrading in basic literacy and essential skills. Reading, writing, math and computer skills, which most of us take for granted, are used in every day life and at work. Over 40 per cent of the Lanark County and Smiths Falls population have a learning disability or do not have the confidence to move forward. Our focus is on one-on-one tutoring and small group formats. Each qualified individual receives a learner plan based on their short and long-term goals, modifying that plan as each milestone is reached and the transition towards work, further education and training or independence has been achieved. We have several job specific programs for people wanting to join or re-enter the workforce in fields such as clerical, truck driving, public works, childcare and landscaping. As a result of economic downturn, many older workers (55 and up) are attempting to re-enter the work force. Some of these job related programs would greatly benefit

these workers with increased essential skills upgrading. Statistics show that retail is the main source of employment in Lanark County. ALTC has curricula for customer service, retail and hospitality, and recently developed a Cash Register Basics Program. Three actual registers are set up at the centre and two programs are currently on the go. Two-hour sessions run for six weeks and provides hands on and activity training. Also part of our enhanced programs are basic computer, family literacy and reading to eating. With individualized learner programs, our hours of study are flexible. Learners can come in one day a week, two half-days or five full days, but there has to be a commitment in order to make that connection between literacy and real life tasks to create lifelong learning. We can only help those who are ready and eager to want to help themselves. Funding for our centre and outreach programs throughout the county comes from the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities, and part of Employment Ontario’s Employment and Training Network. Funding is also received from the United Way, also under financial stress owing to the difficult economic times. ALTC has just received one time funding from Green Shield, an organization that reaches out to assist a wide

range of not-for-profit organizations in need of support. With this support we were able to purchase a SMART board to create and use learning activities along with lesson plans. The funds will also be used to help create, implement and facilitate our Reading to Eating Program and a Monday Management curriculum. Any adult from age 19 to 65 plus are welcome to come in and have their skills and knowledge reviewed and work towards the interaction of those skills and knowledge to reflect their needs, goals and interests. Our service requests are not just based on employment goals. It can be anyone looking to learn how to find and use information, communicate ideas and information, understand and use numbers, use digital technology, manage learning and engage with others. Once a learner’s goal is reached or their needs are met, they move on to complete the next achievement in their life where their learning skills can be transferred to activities in work, family and the community. Our move from Perth to Smiths Falls has been very beneficial. The 52 Abbott St. North building houses other services in which we partner with. OnTrac (employment services), New Directions (helping mature workers return to work) and Ontario Works (financial assistance) partner with us by way of referrals

and sharing programs amongst clients and learners. It is a onestop shopping for earning and learning. Volunteers are the base and rock of our programs at ALTC. Learners are matched to tutors who help train in other parts of the county because as we all know, transportation is a huge barrier when there are no means of getting from point A to B, so we go to learners in their own community. We train our volunteers by making them aware of the different learning difficulties,

she remarked. “I’ve been to China, Africa, all over Europe and even Iceland.” One of her favourite places in the world is Costa Rica, which she used to travel to each year, but also loved spending time in Alaska and Hawaii and had a wonderful experience while visiting Israel in 1995. She has dozens and dozens of photo albums she’s compiled from her trips and even collected spoons and dolls from around the globe. While she never made it to

the different characteristics of our adult learners and the skills needed to provide the necessary support for success. Everyone comes here for the same reason – to get the help they need to improve their lives in one way or another. No one is signaled out. At ALTC there is a noticeable change for the better in the learner’s self confidence and ability to fit into their community. With all of life’s daily challenges, there are bright spots. They are right in front of you,

if you know where to find them. From time-to-time we all get too busy trying to make things happen that you lose sight of what’s right there in front of you. So if you, or someone else you know may benefit from what we have to offer, please drop in or contact us and find out how we can help. We are open five days a week, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 52 Abbott St. North in Smiths Falls.

India or Japan, Leacock said she has no regrets. “I think I pretty much got to all the places I really wanted to see,” she remarked. Though she booked international tours, Leacock also spent much of her time organizing mystery excursions and day trips closer to home for seniors. It’s a part of her job she truly loved. “I always found places that weren’t that far away that people had never heard of. I was always searching out new things that they wouldn’t have seen,” she stated. “It was a social

time for seniors.” The best part of her job, other than traveling the world? Bringing a smile to people’s faces. “I enjoyed seeing people have a good time, I just loved it,” Leacock commented. “I hate to quit, but I know I have to.” “...I have so thoroughly enjoyed the 40 years. My special thought is that if you don’t like the work you’re doing then you need to find something you do like. It’s very important to live life doing something that’s of interest to you,” she concluded.

Deathtrap at Full Circle Theatre: Performances and tech combine for real entertainment

Submitted photo

And then the strangling! Aspiring playwright Clif- Levin’s Deathtrap. The thriller runs at the Full Circle ford (Chris Angel) acts out his ideas for a new thriller, Theatre, 26 Craig Street, Perth, Thursday through Deathtrap, to the non-amusement of veteran play- Sunday this week. wright Sidney Bruhl (David Bird) in a scene from Ira to handle Levin’s intricate dialogue in a character of extremes. Onstage for more than 90 per cent of the show, David Bird is Sidney Bruhl, a possibly-washed up writer of thrillers who finds an opportunity to acquire a brilliant new script that will restore fortunes and reputation for him - all it will take is murder. Bird is alternately funny and frightening; a witty Broadway playwright one moment, joking that the new thriller is so good that “a gifted director couldn’t hurt it” (drawing a big laugh from an actual gifted director on opening night!) and turning

cold-blooded killer the next. “What’s the point of owning a mace,” he says, pointing to a nasty-looking medieval weapon on the wall, “if you don’t use it once in a while?” Bird’s role, too, requires some extreme physical action that is both frightening and impressive. The show moves like lightning, stepping from scene to scene in moments and flying through Levin’s witty and twisting script in just on two hours, including an intermission. To achieve that pace, with the clarity that the show has, is the result of long experience, on

the part of both cast and director, David Jacklin. The final element is the technical achievement of the production. From a set that depicts a New England Colonial home to working antique weapons to a number of mood-setting and frightinducing special effects, BarnDoor Productions is drawing on decades of past experience and taking full advantage of newly upgraded lighting facilities in the Full Circle Theatre (along with the facility’s existing surround-sound audio system) to support and enhance the production, moving it a large step above the run-of-the-mill and well into the realm of the long-time memorable. Deathtrap is the longest-running thriller in Broadway history, but it won’t stay around much longer in Perth. Final performances are set for June 20, 21, 22 at 8 p.m. and June 23 at 2 p.m. - that’s Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon, this week. Tickets are $20 reserved; $22 at the door; students are $10. Reservations can be made by simply calling 613-267-1884; no credit card is required; cash at the performance is requested. More information can be found at www.barndoorproductiond.ca BarnDoor Productions’ Deathtrap is funny, frightening, exciting and entertaining. If you like any of those, then come to the Full Circle Theatre for your best bet in entertainment this month. Submitted by BarnDoor Productions.

Myra can appear to be one-dimensional and flat, but Kristy’s performances is far from that. Janice Jacklin as psychic Helga Ten Dorp is funny and bizarre and unpredictable as she pops up at unexpected and inconvenient (for the bad guy) moments. Chris Angel is likeable and friendly and deadly as Clifford, a young wouldbe playwright lured into the Deathtrap with fatal results – although for whom, we are not saying. Angel has a very physical role, involving some spectacular falls and more, as well as the need

R0012170706_0620

EMC Entertainment – A thunder storm rages outside an attractive Colonial home while, inside, a desperate fight can be seen in flashes of lightning. Thunder rolls and weapons flash in the glare of the lightning bolts. Audience members gasp and occasionally scream – then find an opportunity to laugh. What’s going on? Not the latest Hollywood blockbuster, but BarnDoor Productions’ thriller Deathtrap, running Thursday through Sunday this week at the Full Circle Theatre in Perth. The play is a combination of great onstage performances, an experienced company, and some truly impressive technical excitement that adds up to a thoroughly entertaining two hours of theatre. It starts with Ira Levin’s great script. Deathtrap is a twisting, turning play that is about itself – every moment that happens in the play is described by the characters in the play, often before it happens, yet Levin fills every moment with intense excitement. Who will do what – and when? And to whom? Deathtrap doesn’t follow a straight path through its story, but twists and doubles back and crosses over itself. Even so, whenever the next plot moment is revealed, the audience immediately, and joyously, sees how they’ve been misled by the playwright. The next element is a solid and experienced company, turning in the kind of “take it for granted” professional-level performances that people have come to expect from Perth’s original community theatre. Kristy Angel brings an interpretation to the difficult role of Myra that many miss when playing the role:

LE T TER TO THE EDITOR

Where does Reid stand on wasteful mailings? DEAR EDITOR: Word is out that Conservatives plan to use your tax dollars to mail their juvenile propaganda against Justin Trudeau to your home. Will Lanark, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington MP Scott Reid sink to that level? The answer is in the mail. By now you’ve probably seen the TV commercials. In them, the Conservatives use out-of-context fabrications and falsehoods to try to smear the new Liberal leader. Liberals instead are responding with a positive campaign that introduces Canadians to the real Justin Trudeau, focused on his plans to fight for middle-class families and for all those who are working so hard to join the middle-class. But Conservatives plan to use their Parliamentary mailing and printing privileges to put

their ugly message in taxpayer-funded pamphlets to be distributed across the country. This is a gross misuse of tax dollars that should be going toward constructive public discussion of public issues, not partisan character assassination. At least 19 Conservative backbenchers have had the courage to reject this wasteful and dishonest abuse. They say it’s beneath their standards. But what about your MP? Mr. Reid has a choice—he can choose to say no to Stephen Harper and refuse to clutter your mailbox with this abusive material, or knuckle under. Which will it be? Ralph Goodale MP Deputy Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada

EMC Editorial – June 21 marks the first day of summer and with it comes the season that everyone looks forward to: lazy weekends at the cottage, barbecues on the patio and of course, time spent on the water. The Ontario Provincial Police are encouraging all boaters and paddlers to stay safe out on the waterways this summer. They police 94,000 square kilometres of Ontario’s waterways. Last year, 20 fatal boating incidents occurred in Ontario where 22 people lost their lives. Eighteen of those 22 were not wearing lifejackets. Before embarking on an outing by boat, it’s important to remember to ensure there are enough lifejackets or personal flotation devices for each person coming on board. Even those who consider themselves good swimmers can encounter a scary situation. Alcohol consumption accounted for seven of the 22 boating deaths last year. If you are too intoxicated to get behind the wheel of a car, the same goes for boats. The laws that govern Ontario’s waterways are the same as those travelling the roads. It’s also a good idea to properly familiarize yourself with the boat you are operating. Make sure it has been properly maintained. Also remember that by law, anyone operating a motorized water vessel must have a valid pleasure craft operating card. Use proper judgment and safe practices to ensure you and your family avoid a tragedy out there this summer. For more information about safe boating regulations, visit the Canadian Safe Boating Council website www. csbc.ca.

Mother always put used flour bags to good use EMC Lifestyle – Going into Renfrew to the grist mill with Mother was always a treat for me. I marvelled at how she bartered for a good price on the flour bags, and how she always seemed to come out with a good bargain. The bags were piled willy-nilly in a heap in a corner and if we went early on a Saturday morning, before too many people beat us to it, the selection was at its best. Mother would take off one at a time, examine it closely, and either toss it aside, or put it in a pile by me. My job was to take the bag and fold it into a square so that it, with the others she picked, would fit nicely in the clothes hamper we brought from the farm. There would be no Saturday-night house party that week! My sister Audrey, Mother and I would spend the evening getting the bags ready for the Monday washing. There would be seams to rip out, and those that needed it were cut open with the scissors so that they would lay flat. Of course, they still carried the remnants of the flour they once held, and by the time we had worked our way through the laundry basket of bags, we were covered from head to toe. Even

our hair was flecked with flour. But since it was Saturday night anyway, our weekly bath and head wash would take care of that. Before they could be made use of, the flour bags had to be washed twice. On Monday morning, they were washed separate from the rest of the laundry, and hung over the fence to dry. That washing was to get rid of the flour dust. The next stage was one I detested, and I tried to keep my distance. Mother bought big glass bottles of Javel water from Briscoes General Store. Using a big square tub, the bags were soaked for the better part of a day in a mixture of water and Javel. This was supposed to take out the bright printing that came with every flour bag, but sadly, it never quite did the job. It wasn’t unusual for me to wear bloomers made out of the bags, with “Pride of the Valley” still quite visible across my seat! Then the bags had their second washing. If it was a sunny day, they were spread out on the grass outside in the hope the hot rays of the sun would further diminish the vivid printing on every bag.

Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

Although everyone I knew in Northcote made use of flour and sugar bags, older girls like my sister Audrey would never admit their underwear once came from Five Roses Flour. Happy was the day when Audrey was finally wearing store-bought bloomers from Renfrew. But alas, as long as I went to the Northcote School, my lot in life was flour bag underwear! The best bags, once they had been washed, were laid out flat, and the very best of them became sheets. It took four bags to make one sheet, and I was off the farm before I found out that sheets didn’t come with a seam down the middle and one going cross-wards! Working around the printed words was a challenge for Mother. She made sure that the best pinny aprons were News Editors: Laurie Weir, Joe Morin, Ashley Kulp REPORTERS: Stacey Roy, Tara Gesner, Desmond Devoy, Kelly Kent 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

free of print, and pillow cases, sometimes after being bleached three of four times, were ready for embroidering by Audrey and me. I thought my sister was very clever indeed. She made beautiful crossstitching, which I never did seem to be able to master. French knots were another specialty of my talented sister Audrey, and ‘company’ tea towels were festooned with lovely embroidery work, which I was quick to point out to whatever guest happened to be helping us red up the kitchen. The aprons Mother made out of flower bags were enormous. They had long tails to tie at the back, and when I had to wear one to churn for butter, it covered me from chin to my ankles, and lay in a heap around my feet on the floor. A coat hook at the back kitchen door held many aprons. These were always fresh as a daisy, ironed, and spanking white. As soon as Mother heard someone come in the lane, she ripped off the apron she was wearing, even if she had just put it on that morning, and reached for one off the hook.

she should be caught with a spot on an apron in front of company, even if it was just another farmer coming to have a chat with Father! Rick rack braid went on collars of flour-bag blouses to take away the look of where they had come from. The bags had many uses, and the price was just right for those Depression years. And what was known many years later as recycling was just another way of surviving those days when there was no money for frivolities. Although just about everyone at the Northcote School wore flour-bag underwear, with a few exceptions like my little friend Joyce and bad Marguirite, there were times when I wished there was a better way of getting rid of the hateful dyed printing on just about every pair of bloomers I wore. The answer came one morning when I was dressing for school. I mistakenly put the bloomers on backwards. The printing was still there, but it was less likely to be seen in a game of tag or ball if my skirt accidentally flew up. Ever after, I went to the Northcote School with my flour-bag underwear on backwards, and no one was the wiser! • 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.

Thank you to all of the walkers – twolegged and four-legged for a wonderful event and it was great to see so many LAWS alumni out struttin’ their stuff. The top fundraising team was the Pooch Posse – Waggs n’ Whiskers and the top fundraising individual was Colleen Hebert-Jardine. We had huge community support from local businesses and would like to thank all the sponsors for making it a huge success, including: Pet Valu Almonte; Cooperators Insurance CP & Almonte; Picture it Studio; Fresh Co; Patrice’s Independent; Carleton Place Manor Retirement Residence; Carleton Place Denture Clinic; The Cheddar Stop; Equator Coffee Roasters Inc.; Ballygiblins Restaurant & Pub; Mike Dean’s Super Food Stores Hill’s The Global Leader in Pet Nutrition; Mississippi Mills Animal Hospital; EMC; Seascape Kayak Tours Inc.; Love that Barr; Carleton Place Lions Club; Cats Paradise & Spa; Natural Pet Foods; Almonte Vet Services; Mahogany Spa; Starbucks; Jack FM; The Humm; and Lake 88.

A touching story of love from Britain’s capital

London icon Mind the Gap is so well known that it has been immortalized on t-shirts and every souvenir imaginable. I have a pencil sharpener in my home office with the same message emblazoned on it. To us that message says “London” in the same way Big Ben does! A few weeks ago I read a touching story related to that very same subway PA announcement. I don’t believe it was very well publicized here. I first read the story on the BBC news website and later saw a short newspaper account here. The BBC story explained that a widow’s wish to hear her late husband’s voice again has prompted London subway officials to restore a 40-year-old recording of the system’s famous “Mind the Gap” announcement. London Underground staff

Reflections BY JEFF MAGUIRE

tracked down the voice recording by Oswald Lawrence after his widow, Margaret McCollum, approached staff and told them how much it meant to her. McCollum, a retired physician, told the media that she used to frequently visit Embankment Station, a major subway hub in Central London my wife and I are very familiar with. She stopped there just to listen to her husband’s voice. She planned her journeys in order to hear Oswald’s announcement, even before his death in 2007. “After he died, I would stay on the platform. I would just sit and listen to it again and again. It was a huge comfort. It was very special,” she told reporters. Last November Margaret was surprised and disappointed to hear another voice making announcements at Embankment Station. On checking with staff she was told the station now has a new broadcast system and could no longer use the old recording. Oswald Lawrence, by the way, was a drama school student with a distinctive voice when he auditioned for the Tube recording. He went on to become a theatre actor and later worked for a tour company. Margaret’s inquiry did not fall on deaf ears! In fact senior London Underground staff was so moved by her story of love that they located the recording and gave the widow a copy of the announcement on a CD for her personal listening pleasure. But Nigel Holness, director of the London Underground, says they decided to go even farther. They are working to restore Oswald’s announcement at the station. Not surprisingly Margaret is overwhelmed by the response. She has expressed delight and

Ken Graham honoured by Rideau Community Health Services EMC News – Rideau Community Health Services (serving Lanark, Leeds and Grenville since 1974) honours Ken Graham, whao for over 30 years has been donating much of his time to improving local governance, environmental organizations, recreational services, and health and social services. Rideau Community Health Services (RCHS) is a community governed health and social service organization operating the Merrickville District and Smiths Falls Community Health Centres and Rideau Valley Diabetes Services. Each year at its annual general meeting the board of directors of RCHS honours one individual for “outstanding contribution to our community.” This year that honour goes

to Ken Graham for his decades of service as a Smiths Falls town councillor and community volunteer. “When we think of what makes an individual or a community healthy we know that it is more than our doctors and nurses; it is a clean environment, good food, physical activity and opportunities for everyone to be included in the makeup of our society” said RCHS board chair Pamela Blackstock. Blackstock noted “year after year, Ken’s contribution of time and energy to a variety of public organizations has benefited young and old alike.” Examples of Graham’s contributions include about 20 years as a Town of Smiths Falls council member, and as an ac-

tive volunteer with the Rideau Environmental Action League, Rideau Valley Conservation Authority, Lanark Leeds and Grenville Public Health Unit, TriCounty Addictions Services, Perth Smiths Falls Hospital and the Ontario Municipal Water Association to name a few. “Ken is a rare person who acts locally and thinks globally. He knows that you have to take care of the services that matter to people and at the same time contribute to reducing the negative impact we have on our environment,” said Peter McKenna, executive director of RCHS. Graham will be received this honour on Tuesday, June 25 at the Smiths Falls Station Theatre, 53 Victoria Ave, Smiths Falls.

says she is looking forward to hearing her late husband’s distinctive voice booming through the Tube once again. So, who says people in large cities are cold and uncaring? This heartwarming tale of love

certainly debunks that very erroneous idea! I think it is the nicest, related story to emerge thus far during the 150th anniversary of the venerable Tube. Next time we are in London we will make a point of listening

for Oswald Lawrence’s voice telling us to “Mind the Gap” at Embankment Station. If you have comments or questions for Jeff Maguire he can be reached by email at: jeffrey.maguire@rogers.com.

stations and the carriages themselves can be intimidating and you need your wits about you to navigate the ticket halls and passageways. You have to be reasonably physically fit because the walk to and from the platforms, especially in certain stations, can be very long. Lengthy passages and plenty of stairs! There have been many stories related to the Tube this year in the midst of the 150th anniversary observances. The Queen made a rare excursion on the underground and her eldest son and heir Prince Charles took only his second ever subway ride. His first was in the company of a nanny when he was a youngster. That brings me to a story I want to share with you this week. Anyone who has ever been to London and traveled on the Tube will be familiar with the public address system. In fact it is impossible to miss the oft-repeated warning “Mind the Gap” which tells passengers to be careful not to stumble into the opening between subway carriages and station platforms. The gap can be significant at certain stations and along some sections of the platform.

R0012171547_0620

EMC Lifestyle – In January I wrote a column about celebrations to mark the 150th anniversary of the subway system in London, England which are continuing all of this year. The London Underground, which first began operations on January 10, 1863, is the world’s oldest subway system. “The Tube,” as it is colloquially called, is a vitally important feature of one of the world’s great cities. Without it London, with its huge population, simply could not function properly. Over the course of the last 20 years my wife Kathleen and I have spent many months exploring Britain’s sprawling capital city. London is one of our favourite places and we hope to spend even more time there in the future. Given the immensity and the complexity of the London subway it is a remarkably efficient way to get around. Next to our passports, airline tickets and hotel reservations, a London Transport pass is the fourth most important thing on our list when we are preparing for a visit to England. We travel the Tube many times each day during a stay in London. When the London subway first opened, 150 years ago this year, long queues formed as people vied to board carriages which were lit by gas lamps. At the time they could travel three miles using seven stations on what was then called “the Metropolitan Railway.” Today the Tube runs for 250 miles (402 kilometres). There are 11 lines linking 270 stations. The system carries nearly four million people daily, which translates into 1.1 billion journeys annually. As I pointed out in the previous article the London Underground is certainly not perfect. It is not for the faint of heart nor is it particularly user friendly for the handicapped, elderly or infirm. There are only 122 lifts (elevators) which means customers most often use escalators (there are 410) and staircases. At busy times the crush in the

EMC News – As a result of significant rainfall over the weekend, water levels on Dalhousie Lake have increased approximately 20 centimetres (cm) above the predicted levels last week and are expected to increase an additional 10 to 15 cm in the next two days. Levels throughout the western portion of the watershed will continue to remain high for at least the next two weeks; any significant rainfall during that period may aggravate the situation. Watershed dams are being operated to manage the increased flows. These areas are extremely dangerous for recreational users of the river system. Residents and visitors are advised to stay well clear of any dam while swimming, boating or fishing to avoid being caught in strong currents and pulled into the dam. Recent vandalism and tampering of local dams is a cause for concern, local police and Mississippi Valley Conservation (MVC) staff are watching for those

People First of Canada to receive $1.5 million from federal government over next three years EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; People with disabilities will benefit from increased support, tools and resources to help address social issues they are facing in their communities. The announcement was made last month by the Honourable Vic Toews, Minister of Public Safety and Member of Parliament for Provencher, on behalf of the Honourable Diane Finley, Minister of Human Resources and Skills Development. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our government recognizes the abilities of all Canadians and is committed to supporting innovative solutions to remove barriers to social and economic inclusion of people with disabilities,â&#x20AC;? said Toews. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By partnering with People First of Canada, we are improving the participation of people with disabilities in our society.â&#x20AC;? People First of Canada is receiving $1,500,000 over three years in federal government funding, which will be used to operate a national information resource centre in Winnipeg to help support people with disabilities. The organization will host forums and information sessions and use social media to educate the Canadian public on issues and barriers faced by people with disabilities. In addition, training opportunities will be available to help people with disabilities develop their social integration, leadership and public presentation skills. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The support we receive from the Government of Canada allows us to advance inclusion for people with intellectual disabilities in our country. This funding will impact the lives of Canadians with intellectual disabilities in many areas. In work, in education, in living and in the community, this funding will help us work towards policies and practices to ensure the full citizenship rights of people with intellectual disabilities,â&#x20AC;? said Shane Haddad, president, People First of Canada. People First of Canada is a national organization led and operated by people with intellectual disabilities. Its members across the country are involved in

self-advocacy, conferences, workshops and engaging in various activities that contribute to local communities. Through the Social Development Partnerships Program â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Disability Component (SDPP-D), the government provides $11 million annually in support of a wide range of projects designed to

improve social inclusion and tackle barriers faced by people with disabilities. Economic Action Plan 2013 introduced an investment of $222 million per year to better meet the employment needs of Canadian businesses and improve the employment prospects for people with disabilities.

Furthermore, the government proposes to maintain ongoing funding at $40 million per year for the Opportunities Fund for Persons with Disabilities, starting in 2015â&#x20AC;&#x201C;16, to help more people with disabilities train for in-demand jobs. The government also proposes to ex-

tend the Enabling Accessibility Fund at a level of $15 million per year to support the capital costs of construction and renovations to improve physical accessibility for people with disabilities, including workplace accommodation.

May flower species are pretty enough to eat By DALE ODORIZZI Lanark County Master Gardeners

EMC Lifestyle – We often think vegetables are for eating and flowers are for looking at. You can combine the two to add flair to your food with flowers. Make sure that your flowers are edible and that they have not been sprayed with chemicals, making homegrown, unsprayed flowers or those grown by organic growers the best. Edible flowers should only be used in moderation to add zest or as a beautiful garnish. Some of the best flowers to eat are: • Nasturtiums are ideal to brighten a tossed salad. They have a watercress-like taste. The leaves are edible with a peppery flavour and the large round seeds have been used as a substitute for capers. • Violets are small in size and sweet in flavour, making them best suited for desserts. Crystallize them for fancy cake decorations or cut them up and sprinkle on ice cream or freeze

Master Gardeners them in ice cubes to flavour cool drinks. • Pansies are extremely colourful and versatile. Use them whole or cut up in desserts, salads or side dishes. • Pot Marigold (Calendula) has bright orange or yellow petals and has been used for centuries to give a beautiful to give a beautiful saffron-like golden colour without saffron exorbitant cost in everything from cakes to casseroles. Use the petals only, not the whole flower. • Daylilies are completely edible but the flowers are the prettiest. Each has a unique flavour, sweet or savory, raw or cooked or fresh snacks right off the plant. Remove the pistils and flower base for best taste.

• Lavender combines well with other herbs. Use sparingly as it has a powerful fragrance. Sprinkle a few flowers on ice cream. • Rose petals taste as good as they smell. They are best used in desserts and confections such as rose petal jam. Use only unsprayed roses. Try vegetable and herb flowers which have the same taste as the more familiar part of the plant, only milder. Try squash or zucchini flowers in soups or stir fries or deep fried in batter or sprinkle a few bright flowers of scarlet runner beans on a casserole. Flowers of chives, onions, garlic and leaks are very decorative so add a few to salads or stir fries. Herbs are a great source of edible flowers. Pale

blue rosemary or pink or purple thyme add visual interest as well as flavour. Borage is grown for its pretty sky-blue flowers and has a mild cucumber-like taste. Never eat these flowers. While some flowers are edible, others are extremely toxic. The iron clad rule for eating mushrooms applies here too – unless you are 100 per cent sure of the flower’s identity and are sure it is safe to eat, do not eat. The following are some commonly grown flowers that must never be eaten: Buttercups (Ranunculus), Castor Beans, Crocus, Daffodil, Delphinium, Foxglove, Hydrangea, Lily of the Valley, Monkshood, Morning Glory, Petunia and Sweet Pea.

EMC News - Leave the leash at home and let ol’ Fido run free with tongue-wagging abandon - the Smiths Falls dog park appears ready for our four-legged friends. And it was all thanks to a family that has already made its historic mark on Smiths Falls. Jan MacDonald, a resident of Oakville, Ont., is a descendant of the Gleeson family, the last residents of what is now the Heritage House Museum, which was purchased by the Town of Smiths Falls in 1977. The family still owns much of the land surrounding the museum, and now, it has donated that land to the town, of which one-and-a-half acres will become an off-leash dog park. “The only proviso, which Photo by PAGE TAYLOR the committee is pleased to do, is to have the park called Dogs like Shaggy will soon Gleeson Park,” announced be able to run off leash at the Coun. Jay Brennan at the new dog park in town. Smiths Falls town council meeting on Monday, June 18. “The fence is going up in July.” The dog park will be located behind the Civitan Club ball diamonds, in the vicinity of the Smiths Falls Curling Club, with parking available at the ball diamonds. Brennan assured council that the dog park committee will be working on a set of rules for dog owners to follow, which will be posted at the park. “Hopefully, by the long weekend in August, we can have our doggies off leash,” said Brennan. “There will be a small-dog area (too).” There will be two sets of gates for entry, similar to those found at other dog parks, like Bark Park in Brockville. The dog and owner enter through the first gate, locking it behind them, before then opening the second gate, lest another dog make a bolt for it. The committee has raised about $11,000, with the town having committed to match up to $12,000. Much of the money will be swallowed up by fencing costs of about $17,000. “There is a great support for it in the community,” said Brennan. “People, when they are looking to move, that is one of the things they look for, a dog park.”

Healthy Living Festival features full events line-up EMC News - The Healthy Living Festival is all set for an exciting event jam-packed with activities and events guaranteed to get hearts racing! The festival will be held for the first time on Saturday, June 22, 2013, in downtown Smiths Falls on Beckwith St. N. between Russell St. and Main St. and Main St. West. The festival line up includes exciting activities like the Little Thing Running Thing – a free race for children 10 and under. The race begins at 9 a.m. at the corner of Park St. and James St. and will feature a 500 metre and 1 kilometre race. Children will have the opportunity to decorate their own bib prior to the event, ribbons will be available for all participants. Next in the line-up will be the Opening Ceremonies, beginning at 10 a.m. on Main St. W. where the Healthy Living Ambassador award will be given

to the winning nominee. The Healthy Living Ambassador is the individual who best promotes a healthy lifestyle in their community. The festival committee carefully evaluated written submissions from more than 20 community members nominating four ambassadors, one of whom will receive the 2013 award. When heading out to the festival, don’t forget your bike! A Bike Rodeo, sponsored by the Smiths Falls Police Association and the Leeds and Grenville Health Unit and Free Methodist Church will give little ones a chance to learn helmet safety and the rules of the road while cycling. The Rodeo will be held in the Main St. W. parking lot between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. The Move-a-Thon, a two hour Heart & Stroke fundraising event, will be held between 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Twelve instructors from across the region and as far away as Ottawa will

take to the stage during the festival to each provide a 10 minute cardio routine, for a workout total of 120 minutes. The Move-a-Thon has attracted the interest of three fitness celebrities – former CFL player and Professional Strength Coach with Elite Performance Academy, Pat Woodcock, IFBB Pro Athlete, Melanie Gardner, and Professional Trainer Angelina Armstrong-Mann (also known as the Iron Angel) – in addition to local and regional instructors. Following the move-a-thon, workshops will take place in the workshop tent on Main St.W. featuring activities such as Piloxing, Zumba, Tai Chi and Yoga, while healthy seminars will offer visitors a chance to take a break and fill themselves in on some amazing healthy information. For the shopper, vendors will be open for business on Beckwith St. N. all day

long, there are currently over 50 vendors registered! As if all these amazing activities weren’t enough, kids and adults can be amazed throughout the day by the wandering fire juggler, while free face painting and balloon animals will be sure to bring a smile to any kids’ face. The rock climbing wall, bouncy castles

and Zendragon Obstacle Course will add excitement to everyone’s day – and don’t miss out on the Gym Stars gymnastics demonstration at 1:30 p.m.!

TR Leger graduate celebrates success EMC News - Sherri Stevenson has learned the hard way the value of a high school diploma. As an articulate, bright and personable woman, Stevenson can be pictured working competently in any one of many different fields. Yet despite these apparent assets, Stevenson explained that because of her lack of a diploma, she has spent the last 15 years able to find work only in casual jobs or as a cashier. On Thursday, June 13, Stevenson finally joined her fellow TR Leger graduates to receive her high school diploma, accreditation she hopes will open new doors for both herself and her family. As a mother of two teenage girls, Stevenson said she was inspired to put in the time and effort needed to receive her certification. “I wanted to make sure I had graduated before they graduated… I wanted to set an example for them.” Stevenson noted it was difficult to find a well-paying job without a high school diploma, and that she wanted her children to know life could be better with an education and a career. Stevenson spoke of her

experience at the Smiths Falls TR Leger campus with enthusiasm, explaining that she had needed an additional three and a half credits to receive her high school diploma, and the teachers at TR Leger worked to find the best way for her to earn those credits. “Anyway they could help me get through this year, they were there for me,” Stevenson said, “They’re the best.” Stevenson is looking forward to getting her Personal Support Worker (PSW) certification so she can more easily provide for her family. The PSW course is offered at both Willis College and Algonquin College, but Stevenson said she is leaning more towards Willis College because of the shorter length of the course which would enable her to more quickly enter the workforce. Kelly Condron, TR Leger Contact Teacher in the Foundations Program, explained that TR Leger is the ideal choice for someone who would like to earn a high school diploma to better their chances in the workplace. Condron stressed there is no “typical” TR Leger student, teachers see students of varying histories with many

reasons for returning to pursue their high school diploma. “It’s hard to say who the typical TR Leger student is,” Condron said, “There’s so many varying backgrounds and for one person it may be just that one last credit not offered at high school, for others they’re like Sherri (Stevenson).” Condron went on to add that many TR Leger students who have children are returning to school to set a positive example for their own children. “That’s a big motivator.” According to their website, the TR Leger School of Adult, Alternative and Continuing Education provides diverse, engaging and flexible programs to adolescents and adults and allows the opportunity to pursue an education with recognition of prior learning, experience and unique needs. TR Leger schools have campuses in locations across Ontario with local campuses in Almonte, Carleton Place, Smiths Falls and Perth. Students who participate in TR Leger learning are given the flexibility to earn credits and training on a flexible schedule to fit their particular needs.

Garden program at St. Luke Catholic High School grows By KELLY KENT kkent@perfprint.ca

The garden program at St. Luke Catholic High School just keeps on growing. The program, which aims to teach students subjects like math, English and science by applying them to real life scenarios, has now expanded to include several innovative features including a new greenhouse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The program has been growing since it started three years ago,â&#x20AC;? said Carolyn Crosby, a math teacher at the school who uses the garden program to instruct her students. Crosby explained that greenhouse at the school was built by the Grade 11 and 12 trade and technology students and will be used to grow many varieties of plants, which the Grade 10 plant business will then sell for $2. Students learn accounting and business management through the plant business as well as basic math, while also learning valuable customer service skills. The whole garden program works to apply these skills in an interesting and engaging manner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The program has a focus on authentic learning,â&#x20AC;? said Crosby. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The students get to learn real life skills like team building and can also learn to complete a task.â&#x20AC;? Another new feature the program now has is an irrigation system, which was installed by the Grade 11 environmental science class. The system runs underground from the school to the greenhouse, making the garden more efficient; the students

used to have to hook up a long hose to the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s water supply to water the plants. In addition to the irrigation system, the Grade 9 science, English and math students built raised beds to house their plants. These will also help to increase efficiency in the gardens by keeping out harmful weeds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[The students] designed and built the raised garden beds,â&#x20AC;? said Crosby. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really quite proud of them.â&#x20AC;? The students planted a variety of plants, like tomatoes, peppers and eggplant just over a week ago and are already seeing success with many of them. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just vegetables that the students grow: they also have a herb garden. Jeanne Daigle of the Smiths Falls Horticultural Society gave a workshop and donated $100 worth of herb plants. After the herbs have grown and been harvested, the Grade 11 hospitality students use them to create delicious meals. The Native Studies class also received a $350 grant to build a native species butterfly garden, which they filled with flowers and plants that naturally grow in the area. In the future, the school plans to build a park for the community on the grounds that will have a wheelchair accessible path running from the Broadview Retirement Lodge, for the seniors to enjoy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The program, right now, is run by the students,â&#x20AC;? said Crosby. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to see it be a community place in the future.â&#x20AC;?

THE EMC - SF5 - Thursday, June 20, 2013


A total of 12 bands came together for the inaugural outdoor ‘Highland on the Rideau’ pipe, drum and band contest last year. Here, they gather for a massed bands presentation in June, 2012.

Highland on the Rideau returns EMC Events – This Saturday, June 22, Lower Reach Park is the place to be for bagpipe music and Scottish culture. The annual “Highland on the Rideau” pipe, drum and band contest returns to Smiths Falls. There will be bands from all around the Ottawa Valley competing for prizes. There will also be food, arts and crafts vendors and Scottish importers. And best of all, admission and parking is free. This year Highland on the Rideau will be at Lower Reach Park. The splash pad will be available for kids to cool off. The Kinsmen will also be offering a beer service in their airconditioned building. The solo competitions start at 9 a.m. and the

band competitions start at 1:30 p.m. There will be a final Massed Band at 4 p.m. The Highland on the Rideau is an annual event hosted by Smiths Falls’ very own Gordon Pipe Band. It is a continuation of the indoor contest hosted by the band starting in 2005. In 2012 the contest moved outdoors to become the Highland on the Rideau. The new venue allows for a bigger event with more bands. The Gordon Pipe Band hopes that this will continue to grow into a major annual cultural event for the Smiths Falls area. Detailed information can be found at www.gordonpipeband. com/hotr/home/html

How picking up on cultural cues, clues can help your business EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; When you greet someone, there is so much more going on than just saying hello, intentionally and unintentionally. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You learn a lot from a greeting,â&#x20AC;? said Karima Kara of iexpressions, based in Ottawa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You receive so much information when you receive someone.â&#x20AC;? A visit to Tajikistan, a former Soviet republic in central Asia, showed her that every form of greeting is not reciprocated. She approached a man at a meeting. As she did she raised her hand, andâ&#x20AC;Ś â&#x20AC;&#x153;I went to give a handshake. It was not reciprocated.â&#x20AC;? Before she had even arrived in Tajikistan, she already knew that he proper greeting was to place your hand over your heart and say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Salaam.â&#x20AC;? But her Tajik hosts had beaten her to the punch â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at government offices in the capital, they greeted her warmly, with western handshakes, to make her feel at home. She had forgotten that not everyone felt this way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Get at least three different perspectives before you make assumptions,â&#x20AC;? said Kara. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought I had done my homework.â&#x20AC;? But, in time, as she got to know the man, â&#x20AC;&#x153;after the second or third meeting, he was shaking my hand.â&#x20AC;? She urged people to not rush to judgment first, but, rather, to â&#x20AC;&#x153;take that breath. What is going on here.â&#x20AC;? Yes, you feel disrespected, that he was being rude.

But doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t he feel the same way? â&#x20AC;&#x153;What are the values that are guiding them?â&#x20AC;? she asked. In Canada, you give someone your business card with one hand, and, after a quick glance, the receiver may quickly palm the card, or put it in their top pocket or wallet. In Japan, however, you â&#x20AC;&#x153;present (your) business card with both hands, then (the) receiver accepts it with both hands. Then (the receiver) reads it out, then puts it (on the table) between you.â&#x20AC;? Karaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recollections of awkward moments in inter-cultural exchange were presented at her seminar, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Valuing Diversity: Communities Helping Newcomers Settle and Succeed,â&#x20AC;? at the Perth Civitan Club hall on Thursday, June 13. The event was sponsored by the Renfrew and Lanark Counties Local Immigration Partnership. Kara was born in Uganda, to Indian parents. But in the early 1970s, dictator Idi Amin decided to expel all members of the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Indian population. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We came to Canada as a result of him chucking the Indians out,â&#x20AC;? she recalled. The family moved to Montreal and â&#x20AC;&#x153;thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where I learned French. As a baby, you pick it up as a sponge.â&#x20AC;? Afterwards, she studied at Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s University in Kingston, and the University of Guelph. In 2007, she did return home to Africa and was delighted for two reasons â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Amin was no longer in power, so her people were welcome again, and secondly, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was filled with a sense of gratitude, like I had won the

lottery with a Canadian passport and a Canadian education.â&#x20AC;? Just as a hello comes loaded with different meanings, so too does seemingly welcoming phrases like â&#x20AC;&#x153;tolerating cultures,â&#x20AC;? a phrase that makes Kara bristle somewhat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For me, that (phrase) doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite fit right,â&#x20AC;? said Kara. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That you put up with it. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what I take from it.â&#x20AC;? She is quick to point out that, here in Canada, â&#x20AC;&#x153;we have our challenges, to be sure, but, by comparison, we are doing very well. The gap is in the communications.â&#x20AC;? She stressed that by investing in how you communicate with immigrants, it helps you personally and professionally â&#x20AC;&#x201C; especially if you place an emphasis on listening. And thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more to listening than simply maintaining eye contact and nodding at the correct times: in fact, there are several levels of listening. Just as a simple hello carries so much weight, a yes might not actually be a yes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes could mean, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I am listening, but I am not agreeing,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? said Kara. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes could mean, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to disrespect you by saying no.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Even knowing the language may not be enough to get you by â&#x20AC;&#x201C; culture shock can come when you least expect it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of my biggest culture shocks was not when I went to east Africa. It was when I went to France,â&#x20AC;? she recalled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lived in Montreal, I know French,â&#x20AC;? she thought. Before she went to Africa, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had made cultural R0012172184_0620

preparations.â&#x20AC;? Even at that, however, people are individuals, and the world is becoming a smaller place. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; want to be packaging people,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;They are like this, they are like that.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; But there are tendencies.â&#x20AC;? Smiths Fallsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; resident Peter Au, from China, agreed that he has seen different tendencies in Canadian and Chinese communities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canadians are very passionate. They touch you,â&#x20AC;? said Au. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Chinese are a little more reservedâ&#x20AC;Ś The Americans, are more forceful. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We are the best!â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? While some of our southern neighbours may believe in American exceptionalism, in other countries, like Jordan, hospitality dictates that they, figuratively anyway, give you the shirts off of their backs. One attendee recalled how a friend remarked, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh, what a wonderful painting,â&#x20AC;? while she was walking through a Jordanian home. The words were no sooner out of her mouth than â&#x20AC;&#x153;the painting came down and she could not leave the house without it.â&#x20AC;? Kara agreed that she has seen the same thing happen when someone commented on an Afghan womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s earrings. Off came the earrings, right into the astounded western womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hands. At other times, in other cultures, asking a simple question may feel like pulling teeth, but it is all about saving face. In some cultures, if you offer tea or coffee, your first two offers will be

politely rebuffed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Very likely, the third time they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say no,â&#x20AC;? said Kara. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Offer it about three times. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about respect.â&#x20AC;? Away from the coffee table, big deals can turn on such little things â&#x20AC;&#x201C; like small talk. A business bigwig from Bay Street may like to cut straight to the chase, but his Shanghai counterpart will want to shoot the breeze about the weekend, the kids, or sports, for as much as a half an hour before a meeting gets underway. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In a lot of cultures, I need a relationship, to build trust with you before I can get down to business,â&#x20AC;? said Kara. She has seen examples where western businesses lost business deals â&#x20AC;&#x153;because you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take that half hourâ&#x20AC;? of small talk. In the Tajik or Afghan culture, for example, the question â&#x20AC;&#x153;How is your family?â&#x20AC;? is an important question, not requiring an in-depth answer, but little different from a Canadian asking, â&#x20AC;&#x153;How are you?â&#x20AC;? Matt LeMay of the Labour Marketing Group stressed that it was important from an economic sense for the Ottawa Valley to become more culturally aware. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our communities could benefit from becoming more culturally diverse, more culturally welcoming,â&#x20AC;? said LeMay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canadians probably absorb (immigrants) much better than any other country,â&#x20AC;? though he admitted that â&#x20AC;&#x153;there has been a history of discrimination in this country.â&#x20AC;? He pointed to recent statistics which show one third of population growth in Canada comes through immigration.

Looking Back 100 YEARS AGO - JUNE 24, 1913

The soldier boys came home on Friday and before disbanding, marched down the town led by the regimental band and the Smiths Falls band. They looked well after their stay in camp and made quite an imposing parade. The new post office at Perth is likely to be built sometime, but apparently not this summer. The cadet company in connection with the Collegiate Institute will parade down town Friday evening at 7:15 o’clock. The company is 70 strong and handsome new uniforms have just been procured fot them. 50 YEARS AGO - JUNE 27, 1963 Work at the new federal building in Smiths Falls resumed on Tuesday morning following an eight-day shut-down caused by a carpenter’s strike. Although the dispute is not settled as yet, men went back on the job following a verbal agreement made during a Court hearing held in Ottawa on Monday. The case is to be resumed today. Many hundreds of camera fans and railroad buffs stormed the CPR station on Sunday afternoon to examine at close range two highly interesting locomotives. One was a famed relic of the past and the other was one of the newest engines on the line. Causing the greatest attention was the huge steam engine that pulled the Royal Train across Canada and back in 1939. With a fresh coat of paint, white trimmed wheels and the shiny Royal crest on the sides.

So long, thanks for all the fish

With the 1988 Settler Days celebration just two days away, event chairman Mark Beveridge said the schedule is set and things are looking good for this year’s event to be one of the best ever. The three-day festival officially gets underway at 1:30 p.m. just before the Canada Day Concert on the Smiths Falls District Collegiate football field. The town will clean up garbage at the former Justus property and bill the former owner, Mayor Laurence Lee said Monday. Mayor Lee said he had received a letter Monday morning from Bargain Mart owner Brian Marimeau complaining about trash accumulating and rowdiness at the Beckwith Street property.

EMC Lifestyle – OK, so I’m not very good with goodbyes. The most eloquent farewell I could come up with was stolen from intergalactic, flying dolphins from that one Douglas Adams book. In a way, my co-op placement has served to be my very own Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, or rather, a guide to that parallel universe I have come to know as the Real World, also sometimes referred to as the Working World, as though none of the worlds I have previously experienced were real or worked very well. The semester is over, and, just like the book’s hero, Arthur Dent, I will be forced from my comfortable home planet and left to navigate the overwhelmingness of adulthood, which is as vast and infinite as space itself, wearing only my pajamas and armed with a towel. Maybe the metaphor is a bit overly dramatic. What I was trying to get at is how grateful I am to be able to experience first hand the type of work I would like to get into in the future. My co-op at this newspaper has given me valuable insight into journalism and I have learned so much. It has been a source of information in the face of an uncertain future, not unlike the Guide. Some of the things I have learned are not to hang up the phone as though it has electrocuted me when I get an answering machine – I learned that the first week.

10 YEARS AGO - JUNE 27, 2003 Want to learn more about the myriad of ghosts who haunt the Rideau Canal system? You can next month as a travelling troupe of canal interpreters make a stop at the detached locks off Abbott Street. Spirits Rising, a presentation by Parks Canada, is a fund-raising event for the Lanark County Museums Association for the upcoming Rural Expo 2003, the Lanark County International Plowing Match in Carleton Place. The Lanark County Therapeutic Riding Program has enjoyed successful fund-raisers in the month of June. Jim, Carol-Anne and Kelly Donaldson of Lanark hosted the Annual Spring Trail ride where 66 riders came out to enjoy their beautiful trails that wound their way through the forest and along both the Clyde and the Mississippi Rivers. Proceeds were shared with the North Lanark Agricultural Society where Jo-Ann Donaldson will be using the funds for the organization of the Horse Show at the Almonte Fair. Compiled by Page Taylor

PAGE TAYLOR Page’s Point One of the most emotionally challenging stories that I was given to write during my placement was an obituary. At first I was very hesitant about the interview, because I knew that I couldn’t let myself mess something like that up. But the family had stepped forward to talk, and I realized that this wasn’t meddling, this was honouring. To contrast, one of the most fun assignments I went on happened recently with the therapeutic riding program. Like many other girls before me, I was really big into horses when I was a kid, and it was great to be around them again. I’ve also discovered the deceptive difference between school assignments and capital “W”, Work assignments, as though you get a handout sheet with clear instructions and expectations and a rubric to follow for a four plus mark. The Real World, I regret to inform you, does not offer such luxuries. However, there’s something far more rewarding in the Real World that I didn’t expect, and that was the sense of personal accomplishment when a task gets completed fairly well. Sure,

you don’t get marked on it, but maybe that’s why such a feeling is present, because you’ve created something from nothing – not from a curriculum, nor from an expectation sheet or a rubric or a report card – there was only an idea, someone else’s or yours, that became a story. This summer, I will go to work as a public relations intern at the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital, thanks to my co-op placement and the doors that it has opened. To any high school students out there, I cannot recommend a cooperative education placement enough. It’s such an amazing way to test drive a possible career, whether it be because you are hesitant about spending money on a post-secondary program or would like to be introduced to an apprenticeship. After this summer though, my thoughts for the future get vague, and the agoraphobia of the terrifying vastness of possibilities starts to creep up again. I have plans to apply to a journalism program, but how can one ever know for sure what unexpected things will happen? That’s where the Guide comes in again, to reassure me that, though the universe can’t be measured exactly, some questions can be answered. And who knows, maybe, like Arthur Dent, I will inadvertently stumble upon the ultimate answer – the one to Life, the Universe and Everything? But, I digress.

The event celebrated RBC Blue Water Day. to help fund a community-based planning project for Mississippi Lake, a management plan, in order to ensure the stress of development and increased boat traffic doesn’t adversely affect the lake. “This study is an opportunity for the MVC, the Mississippi Lakes Association and other stakeholders to identify values, issues and impacts on Mississippi Lake and to develop goals and actions to protect its health,” noted MVC watershed planner Alyson Symon in a press release. “By identifying and prioritizing stressed areas we can encourage private landowners and community stewardship activities and monitoring where it is most needed.” The lake plan will focus on areas such as water quality, development and fish and wildlife to help preserve the character of Mississippi Lake. A total of $7,500 was given to the CSW, in order to produce a video series about the importance of the Mississippi

The project will be a partnership with not only the MVC and CSW, but the Community Stewardship Council of Lanark County, Pinegrove Productions and the Ministry of Natural Resources as well. “These will be short, educational videos to show people where water comes from and how to sustain its health,” noted Preston. According to the MVC’s Suzanne McFarlane, RBC Blue Water Day was the perfect opportunity to celebrate these grants. “These projects are all so closely connected that it made for an ideal day and location to do it together,” she noted. RBC Blue Water Day, a part of the 10-year RBC Blue Water Project, aims to help preserve and protect fresh water.

EMC News – The five young silver maples now taking root in Carleton Place’s Riverside Park will grow and strengthen the Mississippi watershed for years to come. The trees were planted June 14, marking RBC Blue Water Day, and celebrating two new initiatives, which were made possible thanks to RBC community action grants. The silver maples came from Kemptville’s Ferguson Forest Centre. Carleton Place councillors Louis Antonakos and Rob Probert, as well as representatives from Mississippi Valley Conservation (MVC), RBC branches in Carleton Place, Almonte, Perth and Portland, and the Centre for Sustainable Watersheds (CSW), were in attendance for the event. The silver maples will help enhance a shoreline vegetated buffer the MVC created along with help from Carleton Place High School students. “This so-called ‘ribbon of life’, the shallow waters and first 10 to 15 metres of shore around lakes and rivers is up to five times more diverse in plants and animals than other upland environments,” commented Lynne Preston, CSW shoreline stewardship coordinator. “This rich habitat supports plants, insects, amphibians, birds, mammals and fish. Keeping shorelines natural is the easiest way to protect water quality, fisheries resources and the value of waterfront properties.” Preston said that activities such as waterfront development are deteriorating the shores of many of Canada’s lakes and rivers. “The solution is relatively simple: enhance or do not remove the vegetation from the immediate shoreline area,” she remarked. “And it helps when granting organizations, like RBC, are willing to help Canadians do this.” The MVC received a $6,000 grant

Matthew Brearey, said that branches across the country were celebrating the day. “People can come into any RBC location today and receive bookmarks with seeds to plant and information on Blue Water Day,” he stated.

SFDCI teacher receives award from Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s University Victoria Currieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lasting impression on former student Madison Healey prompts nomination set, she made students feel safe in her classrooms; no question was ever too foolish or outlandish to be asked,â&#x20AC;? Madison explained. And while she made sure to make science fun for her students, Madison says Currie took her teaching seriously, sharing that passion with the young people in her classes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Her course was widely considered the most challenging, yet after completing first year biology it was by far the course I was most prepared for. She really encouraged deeper thinking, rather than simple memorization of facts. She was constantly looking for new ways to challenge us in our thinking, and looking for ways to improve her own teaching.â&#x20AC;? Currie was always more than willing to provide extra help for those students struggling with the subject matter and always showed a genuine interest in their well-being. Madison also had a chance to get to know her teacher on a different level when she served as president of the SFDCI Studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Council with Currie as the faculty advisor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I got to know her there in a completely different setting, and she inspired me to be a better leader, and a better person,â&#x20AC;? she notes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The classroom is where she instilled within me a love of learning, but it was outside of it where I realized what an excellent role model she is.â&#x20AC;? Currie was selected for the award from among close to 60 nominees, Madison relates.

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Teachers really do make a huge difference in the lives of their students â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just ask Madison Healey. The Smiths Falls native, who graduated this spring from Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s University in Kingston with a BScH (majoring in Psychology), nominated her former high school science teacher Victoria Currie for the Baillie Award for Excellence in Secondary School Teaching. Successful in that nomination, Currie received the prestigious award at Convocation June 12 from Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s University Principal Daniel Woolf with Madison, her mother Kate Ryan and Currieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s husband Ian (also a teacher at SFDCI) looking on. According to the school website, the awards were established by Chancellor Emeritus A. Charles Baillie. They give students graduating from Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;the opportunity to honour educators in Canada who, during the studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high school career, had a decisive and formative influence on the student, and set them on the course to post-secondary education and ultimately to their graduation from Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These awards recognize an exceptional teacher who has served as a role model and mentor to their students, instilled a love of learning, and inspired academic excellence and the pursuit of higher education.â&#x20AC;? Award recipients each receive $5,000 and are invited to campus to receive their honour at their student nomineeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s convocation ceremony. In her nomination form, Madison outlines the incredible role Currie played in steering her toward a career in science. In fact, entering Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute (SFDCI) out of elementary school, the daughter of Frank Healey and Kate Ryan says she had a real dislike for the subject matter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mrs. Currie came in as a young teacher fresh from her own university experience,â&#x20AC;? she wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She ignited the classroom with her upbeat attitude and passion for teaching. Within a few weeks of her coming to our classroom, my entire attitude had changed.â&#x20AC;? Before long, science became Madisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top subject. And that love for the material continued to grow through Grade 10 science, then Grade 11 and 12 Biology, all with Currie as her teacher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think one of the things that really sets Mrs. Currie apart is her own genuine curiosity pertaining to all things science. With this as her mind-

Raindrops keep fallin’ on firefighters’ heads By DESMOND DEVOY

Spartan Scene 2.0

EMC News - After several weeks of hard work and practice, the intermediate baseball teams set off for the County Tournament in Smiths Falls. Mr. Imeson and Mr. Bujacz each coached a team of boys, and Mrs. McKinnon coached the girls, who ended up winning the entire tournament. Roots of Empathy, a program the Board of Education uses to help students develop empathy, has just brought the baby Jesse to the school for the last time after several weeks of visits. In addition, a public health nurse has been visiting Grade 8 classes to educate students about self-respect and healthy relationships by using a series of informative videos, group activities and discussion. Lastly, the Grade 8 students are taking their end-of-year trip to Toronto this week, where they are visiting Medieval Times, the Royal Ontario Museum, the Toronto Zoo, the and Holocaust Education Centre.

EMC News - Firefighters depend on water for their livelihood - but not when that water is leaking onto their fire trucks, causing untold damage. That’s why Smiths Falls’ town council, at its Monday, June 17 meeting, voted in favour of allowing for an exemption to the town’s procurement bylaw to repair the roof after the rainy weather that has left for a soggy Fathers’ Day.

Fire Chief Joel Gorman, who retires June 30, told council that the 35-year-old roof was “leaking across all the fronts of the trucks. Last year it was beyond repair and it would need replacement.” Council agreed that the leak needed to be dealt with as soon as possible, but Coun. Jay Brennan noted that the roof was simply one symptom of a larger problem. “This is something that has to be done, but in the long run, the life span of

Ken Graham and chief administrative officer Steve Fournier, had “reached an agreement with our professional firefighters, dependant upon their approval” of the final agreement, Brennan said.

“This is not planned for,” said Coun. The agreement will also go before Lorraine Allen. “The larger the leaks (if full council in two weeks’ time

However, even Reid admitted that polls can be deceiving, such as polls that gave the B.C.

2013 RELAY FOR LIFE Special four-page pullout

Fighting spirit alive and well in spite of soggy conditions By STAFF

EMC News – There were galoshes aplenty at this year’s Relay for Life in Smiths Falls. But that didn’t put a damper on the spirits of those who came out for the 2013 Relay for Life overnight June 7 and 8. The two events in Smiths Falls and Mississippi Mills raised a combined total of $195,000. “We had two great events on Friday night,” said Amanda Gifford, fundraising co-ordinator for the Canadian Cancer Society in Lanark, Leeds and Grenville. Gifford said she didn’t have a goal in mind for the new location for the Smiths Falls event, which left its old home in Lombardy this year for its new location at Smiths Falls and District Collegiate Institute. “We heard a lot of positive feedback about the new location. It’s more of a close-knit community type of atmosphere and they didn’t have to walk on a muddy track,” she said. Two of the 27 teams registered for the Smiths Falls event didn’t show due to weather or other commitments with family, Gifford said, but overall, she was happy with the response. “For a brand new venue, it went well,” she said. Last year, this relay event raised $149,000 in Lombardy. In Almonte, 34 teams raised $117,000 this year, bettering last year’s total by $6,000. Lanark Leeds and Grenville hosted the fourth event on Friday night, June 14 at Row’s Corners Fairgrounds in Brockville. St. John Catholic High School in Perth held a successful event

late in May with more than $50,000 raised. “It’s never too late to make a donation to Relay for Life,” Gifford said. “People can donate anytime online.” Trackside In Smiths Falls, rain drizzled but spirits were high as the track was lined with participants for the evening-long, 12-hour event that kicked off at 7 p.m. Under the big tent in the Fight Back Zone, Norene Allan and Jan Hopkins, both long-time volunteers, were kept busy and dry. “We have a silent auction here, information booths, and you can even get your picture taken,” said Allan, as she hopped up behind a cardboard cutout of a groovy couple and popped her face through one of the holes. Groovin’ for a Cure was the theme of this year’s event where participants dressed in their tie-dyed outfits – from tents to T-shirts – beads and big glasses. The parade of survivors circled the track to start the celebration and once around, other participants fell in behind on the second lap. “It’s something that we’ve been doing since 2001,” said Jan Holland of the Bay Buds team. “We said we were going to quit this year, but we decided to keep going because we were close to $50,000.” This year, their $5,800 brought the team from the Elgin/Seeley’s Bay area to $52,000. “We’re getting older now… it’s hard to keep the interest, but these guys have been awesome. Now we have survivors on the team.”

Message from the Lanark, Leeds & Grenville President

G

rooving for a cure – what a great theme for this year’s Relay. It’s fun to go back – to the 60’s for the 2013 Relay, and to 1938, 75 years ago, for the founding of the Canadian Cancer Society. At the same time, there’s lots that’s new, including our first Relay in Smiths Falls. Undertaking this event requires tremendous community support. We are so very grateful to the citizens of Lanark, Leeds & Grenville: our amazing team captains and team members, our corporate sponsors, donors, performers, Canadian Cancer Society Staff partners, and those who support Relay For Life by sponsoring a participant. Thank you; we truly could not do this without you. Relay For Life events happen with the support and dedication of another group of partners in the fight – our volunteers. Thank you to all our Committee Members and Event Day Volunteers who have worked for many months to pull Relay For Life together. The partnership we share with you is key to Relay’s success. This is our first year in the Smiths Falls location, so our Committee Members have been finding solutions to the challenges that a new location offers, and have taken advantage of the advantages as well. By supporting our Relay for Life, you are adding years to people’s lives; you are making their journey with cancer less challenging, and you are helping to find a cure. Together, WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE! My sincere thanks for your continued support of the Relay For Life in Smiths Falls. See you next June. Sincerely, Jan Hopkins, President

Members of area Civitan Club continue to play a huge role in the staging of the Relay for Life. In Smiths Falls June 7, the large contingent was all smiles, despite the wet conditions, as they paraded around the track at Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute.

Our fight for life in Lanark, Leeds & Grenville With the support of our generous donors and volunteers, we are fighting back against cancer in our community and across Ontario. Here are just a few of the ways that the Canadian Cancer Society supported our community in 2012. • Comprehensive information about cancer: 276 callers in the Lanark, Leeds & Grenville area received information about cancer and local support programs through the Society’s toll-free Cancer Information Service, • Support from someone who has been there: 38 cancer patients living in our community received one-on-one peer support from a trained volunteer who had been through similar experience, • Safe transportation to appointments: In 2012, 17 local children received assistance with 96 trips to their cancer related appointments. As well, 3,560 rides - totaling over 299,518

kilometres - were provided to local adult residents living with cancer, • Living Well Beyond Cancer: This self-management program helped local cancer patients and caregivers acquire the tools they need to live with and beyond cancer. We impact more people, in more communities As your best partner in the fight against cancer, the Canadian Cancer Society is having more impact, against more cancers, in more communities, than any other cancer charity in Canada. To learn more about our impact, go to ImpactReport.Cancer.ca to read and listen to stories from cancer fighters across Ontario.

2013 RELAY FOR LIFE Canadian Cancer Society celebrates its 75th Anniversary Every three minutes another Canadian hears the words “You have cancer,” and the Canadian Cancer Society wants them to know that they are not alone. On March 28, 1938, the Canadian Cancer Society was officially born, growing through the years into Canada’s leading national cancer-fighting charity. Today – thanks to the years of support of volunteers and donors – the Society has the reach, strength and experience to make the most impact against cancer in communities across Canada. During the Society’s early years in the 1940s, the cancer survival rate was about 25%. Today, over 60% of Canadians diagnosed with cancer will survive at least five years after their diagnosis. While our 75th anniversary is an occasion to celebrate our contribution to the success in the fight against cancer, it is clear that more work needs to be done. It’s only with the support of our volunteers and donors that the Society will continue to save lives and support people living with cancer.

Throughout 2013, special events and activities will be taking place in communities across Canada to raise vital funds for the important work of the Society. Contact your local Society office to find out what’s going on in your community.

THE EMC - SF15 - Thursday, June 20, 2013


2013 RELAY FOR LIFE Cancer Statistics In 2012, it was estimated that 186,400 new cases of cancer (excluding 81,300 cases of non-melanoma skin cancer) would be diagnosed and about 75,700 Canadians would die from the disease. This meant that on average about 510 Canadians would be diagnosed with cancer and about 205 would die from the disease every day. An estimated 2 in 5 Canadians are expected to be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetimes. An estimated 1 out of every 4 Canadians is expected to die from cancer. We invite Canadians to visit our 75th anniversary microsite at www.cancer.ca/75 years to learn more about how the impact

we have made has changed the course of cancer in Canada. For 75 years the Canadian Cancer Society has been with Canadians in the fight for life. We have been relentless in our commitment to prevent cancer, fund research and support Canadians touched by cancer. From this foundation, we will work with Canadians to change cancer forever so fewer Canadians are diagnosed with the disease and more survive. When you want to know more about cancer, visit our website at www. cancer.ca or call our toll-free bilingual Cancer Information Service at 1-888-9393333;TTY,1-866-786-3934.

Indoor Tanning. Take Action Now! Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer, but it’s also one of the most preventable. Exposure to UV rays – whether from the sun’s rays, tanning beds or sun lamps – increases the risk for nonmelanoma and melanoma skin cancers. There is no safe way to get a tan. To reduce your risk of getting skin cancer, do not use artificial tanning equipment such as tanning beds or sun lamps. Because indoor tanning is especially harmful to young people, the Canadian Cancer Society believes that: • people under the age of 18 should not be allowed by law to use indoor tanning equipment. • indoor tanning advertising aimed at people under the age of 18 should be banned. What needs to happen: Federal, provincial and

governments should regulate the indoor tanning industry by requiring the registration of tanning beds and sun lamps, licensing of staff and regular inspection of equipment and premises. Tanning equipment should be labelled in a way that clearly explains the health risks. The indoor tanning industry must stop using misleading phrases such as safe, no harmful rays, no adverse effects or similar wording. Ontario needs a tan bed ban! Send your MPP a message supporting a tan bed ban in Ontario. Tell the Government of Ontario to take action and pass legislation prohibiting youth under the age of 18 from using tanning beds.

Welcome Home Reunion for SFDCI alumni set for June 28-29 EMC Events – Everyone’s invited to participate in next weekend’s ‘2013 Welcome Home Reunion’ in Smiths Falls. Anyone with a connection to town – SFDCI graduates, former and current residents – will be in for a great time, says organizing committee member Jackie Staples. “We want to get the word out,” she said. “It’s for anyone who ever went to school here or anyone who wants to come back and visit with old friends.” It all begins with a Meet and Greet next Friday, June 28 at the Memorial Community Centre. Running from 8 p.m. to midnight, the cost is $10 per person with musical entertainment provided by Patti Webster. The big events take place the next day starting with the Steak Barbecue at the Smiths Falls Legion Branch 95, starting at 5 p.m. Tickets are $20 per person and available at the Legion or by calling 613-283-2690. From there, make your way over to the Memorial Community Centre for the SFDCI Welcome Home Dance. Running from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. with an admission cost of $10 per person, some of

this community’s greatest bands will be performing all night long including the Digratos, Continentals, Hard, Paper Dream, Night Train and the Doherty Brothers all of whom will serve up 45-minute sets for the audience. As time allows, there will be a grand finale with all the bands, Staples says. “All the groups that are playing are donating their time,” she said. Upstairs at the rink will be a Memorabilia Room featuring not only mementos from high school but also from past Old Home Weeks and Settlers’ Days celebrations. Anyone with anything they’d like to contribute to the display should contact Bette Tysick at btysick@live. com. There will also be a Silent Auction upstairs featuring a wide array of items including a one-night stay at the Best Western Plus Perth Parkside Inn & Spa, paintings by local artists, a $100 gift card from Andress’ Independent Grocer, flower baskets from Greenacres, to name just a few. The memorable weekend wraps up with the Knights of

Columbus Pancake Breakfast Sunday morning, June 30, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. It takes place at the Knights’ hall, 18 William St. W. Cost is $7 per person with children under 10 free when accompanied by an adult. Tickets for the Welcome Home Reunion are available at The Gallery (County Fair Mall); Memorial Community Centre; Scott’s Convenience Store (corner of Elmsley and Beckwith streets); and The Rideau Winery (Russell Street East). This is the first reunion since the ‘Say Goodbye to SFDCI’ back in 2005. Staples says so many people who remember that grand event came up to her asking when something similar might take place again. An organizing committee was formed leading to next weekend’s festivities. “Everyone had such a great time,” she said, recalling the 2005 event. While this is not intended as a money-maker, Staples says any proceeds made from the weekend would go toward something tangible for the community of Smiths Falls.

Art Journey studio tour paints weekend of entertainment

EMC News – The second annual Art Journey Studio Tour took place last weekend as local artists opened their studio homes and galleries to visitors. Saturday’s sunny weather brought guests out in throngs, while Sunday’s rain put a bit of a damper on the number of guests. Some of the pitstops along the tour included these homes. At left, some of Pam Hill’s woodworking artistry – a whimsical fish named Oscar. Above, Hill shows off a 3D wood/acrylic piece. To the right, Annette Sheppard opened her apartment on Pearl Street to guests. Heather Watson chats with Sheppard as she dropped into the artist’s apartment in Smiths Falls on Sunday, June 16.

EMC Sports - The Rideau Ferry Regatta is on a hunt. First, in the tradition of the boat building of this communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s past, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bargain for anyone that has wanted a canoe, but thought they couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford one. For $100, a little bit of armstrong, you can have a brand new canoe and the bragging rights that you built it yourself. What has become a tradition at the regatta â&#x20AC;&#x201C; this is the third canoe build -- a well-instructed hands-on course on building a canoe, is again being offered by the regatta. This includes a seat, a paddle and a prize winning race on the Sunday when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finished. The regatta has even brought the price down from $175 from two years ago. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regatta runs from Aug. 17 to 18. So, if as a family, a club, a corporation, a service club, you think you can put a three or four-person team together and come up with $100, give the regatta a call. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be given a simple booklet showing the build and any tools youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be required to bring. Some tools will be provided. The boat is guaranteed to ring years of fun on the water. Before you even start, a sample canoe, built by the instructors, will be on the site of the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority where the regatta is being held. Tickets for the raffle canoe are $5 and will be available locally. The draw will be held on the final day of the regatta. For information on the canoe build or the raffle, you can call John Kessel at 613-267-2091. The regatta is also in search of volunteers. Volunteers run the Rideau Ferry Regatta, right from the commodore to the parking folks . Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s their way of showing visitors what a great community they

Watershed for 2013 (Burritts Rapids to the Rideau Falls). Projects generally include a confidential and no-obligation site visit, customized planting plan, the purchase of bareroot or potted trees and shrubs and full project management including planting labour. Unfortunately, one of the first things shoreline landowners sometimes do is â&#x20AC;&#x153;clean upâ&#x20AC;? the shoreline â&#x20AC;&#x201D; inadvertently making the first step towards the long, slow, cumulative march to a degraded watercourse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A much better approach is to tuck away the lawnmower.â&#x20AC;? says Klymko â&#x20AC;&#x153;Let mother nature do her job and enjoy your weekend relaxing.

Spend time in a hammock EMC News - Shoreline property owners who spend more time in the hammock this summer could be protecting the health of the Rideau River and its tributaries. Being in the hammock and spending less time mowing along the waterfront could mean more natural, vegetated shorelines. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is simply no replacement for the beauty and function of natural plant communities along the shores of our Rideau River and its creeks and streams,â&#x20AC;? says Andrea Klymko, Shoreline Stewardship Program Manager at the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority (RVCA). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Disturbing these long-established communities often means eroding shorelines, lower water quality, fewer birds and animals, and a loss of economic and scenic value.â&#x20AC;? Rideau Valley Conservation Authority (RVCA) has just released its Lower Rideau Subwatershed Report. The report highlights the growing need for healthy shorelines to maintain watershed health. As a result, the RVCAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Shoreline Naturalization Program is offering shoreline naturalization planting projects completely free of charge to eligible landowners in the Lower Rideau

June 13 edition one of best attended twilight golf events By THE BOGEYMAN

EMC Sports - With the weather finally cooperating, the June 13 edition of the Thursday Night Menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Twilight was one of the best attended in years. The big numbers were matched by a big prize table generously offered by our friends at Smiths Falls Nissan. It was a match made in heaven. The format was Twilight Best Ball, a crowd favorite in which the best drive is chosen and everyone plays his own ball from there. Doug Hart, Brandon Hart, Steve

Hull, Matt Laforges, and Tyler Bruce lit up the front nine, posting the low A Division score of 32. Not far behind was the B Division winning squad of Gary Badour, Charlie Harrison, Ron Coleman, Tony Carbon, and Dennis Staples (not the chef). They shot 34. On the back nine, the A Division team of Dan Cyr, Greg â&#x20AC;&#x153;Champâ&#x20AC;? Hull, Tom McLaren, Jerry Edwards, and Tye Vaillancourt went low with a 28! The foursome (a rarity for 4 man scrambles on Thursday nights) of Kevin

Lewis, Bob Ready, Norm Devine, and Roger Cooke hoisted the B Division trophy with a score of 34. The Roosteraunt closest-to-the-pin prizes went to Rod Parent and Dan Cyr for their precision shots on holes 3 and 16. Jay Jamieson and Greg â&#x20AC;&#x153;Champâ&#x20AC;? Hull (apparently suffering no ill effects from his sled dog consumption a few weeks ago) took home the Burns Jewellers bling for their approach shots on holes 6 and 17. The James Furniture longest putt was drained by George Francis on hole

number 4, and the Town and Country Chrysler longest drives were launched by Nate Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neill and Nic Vaillancourt on holes 7 and 10 (after seeing where Nicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ball ended up, I think heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to have to submit a urine sample). Craig Ritskes was the lucky 50/50 draw winner, and Goldie Dixit took home the bottle of Rockyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bumper Booze. Thanks to Smiths Falls Nissan for a great prize table and all who came out to play!

question: Which world-famous landmark did Arnold Palmer once hit a golf shot off of as part of a promotion? Answer: A. Eiffel Tower.

This weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s question: Who is the current president of Augusta National Golf Club? A. Bobby Jones B. William Payne C. Charles Evans D. William Johnson See next weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s article for the anThe last Obsessed With Golf trivia swer.

Oil Lamps: Oil lamps or lanterns provide excellent light but can be a fire hazard if placed too close to combustibles. Keep oil lamps away from combustibles and out of the wind. Make sure they are kept in a secure place where they cannot be knocked over. Refill the lamps outdoors or away from combustibles and other people.

Miss Teen Canada hopeful puts Ontario crown to work EMC News – When Carleton Place teenager, Haven Lamothe, puts on her provincial crown its time to get her hands dirty and work at raising funds for one of two national charities she is supporting leading up to the national competition this July. “I wanted to do that even if I didn’t get the crown,” Lamothe added of her volunteer efforts. “It kind of makes you feel good.” Since accepting her crown during the provincial competition in Toronto this past January, Lamothe has been taking part in a number of Lanark County events, including Lambs Down Festival and the winter carnival in Carleton Place, a strawberry social in Mississippi Mills and the annual Relay for Life event in Almonte. The June 9 fundraiser for cancer research was a first for the local teen and a very moving experience overall as she worked a number of event tables from the afternoon into the evening and spoke on stage with her aunt Donna (a cancer survivor) at her side. In fact, it was watching her aunt’s strength in battling breast cancer that inspired Lamothe to take on breast cancer research as her pageant platform. “She’s really proud that I chose breast cancer as my platform,” Lamothe said. The young girl has worked hard to find ways for her provincial crown to do good things in the community and area she lives in, so with that in mind she traveled to Roger’s House next to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) in Ottawa May 31 to visit three very special children and make them feel like a prince or princess for the day. This experience was very eye opening for the 14-year-old girl who saw children living with oxygen and unable to talk, but having a great time. “These kids are literally dying and they still have a smile on their face,” she said. She remembers one little guy who was unable to talk, but played along

Those at the May 25 Mom 2 Mom Sale in Carleton Place were greeted by a princess as Lanark County Miss Teen Canada-World 2013 hopeful, Haven Lamothe set up a table to collect funds for Free The Children charity. On July 13 the 14-year-old will travel back to Toronto for a chance of winning the Miss Teen CanadaWorld 2013 competition. with her by scrunching up his face to make her laugh. In addition to numerous public appearances where Lamothe has held fundraisers for the Miss Teen CanadaWorld competition’s charity of choice (Free The Children) the local crown hopeful has also raised funds through a charity dart tournament in Ottawa. To date, she has raised over $600 for Free The Children. Free The Children (www. freethechildren.com) is a non-profit organization that works with youth in Africa, Asia and Latin America to provide

access to education and develop skills to lift them out of poverty for good. At the same time it inspires North America’s youth to be the change they wish to see in the world. Lamothe challenged herself to raise beyond the $400 pageant requirement from the beginning and through her efforts has realized the true gift of volunteerism. “It was important for myself,” she added. “You put a smile on other people’s faces; it’s really fun.” Pageant preparation

In the last few weeks before leaving for the Miss Teen Canada-World pageant in Toronto July 13, Lamothe is hoping to host a couple more Free The Children fundraisers while making preparations for her next big adventure. The young girl is approaching nationals the same way she went into the provincial round – looking to have fun more than capture a crown, and it looks like there will be plenty of opportunity to do just that. The young girl will be leaving Ot-

tawa on train with two other pageant hopefuls July 13 and traveling to Toronto where the girls will be paired up with an out of province teen for the duration of their week’s stay. Between July 13 and the pageant’s gala event the evening of July 20 Lamothe and the other estimated 100 cross Canada participants will be engaged in a variety of programs from choreography to media interviews and checking out the sights and sounds of Canada’s largest city. “I’m really excited and really nervous,” Lamothe said. She’s grateful the interview segment of the event will be done with the panel of judges at the start of the national competition allowing her to take a deep breath and enjoy the rest of her on stage experience. Lamothe plans to build on her successes from the last pageant by bringing something no other girl can to the upcoming competition. “I’m just not going to change who I am. They’re looking for confidence out there,” she said. Lamothe will be one of the youngest competitors at the national level, but this hasn’t stopped her from making good friends with other Ontario crown holders and those from across Canada. In fact, it is these friendships that Lamothe hopes to be the legacy of her time in the Miss Teen Canada-World competition. This gift is one of many the 14-year-old has gained throughout the entire process. “I’ve gained a feeling of responsibility. I feel in charge of something,” said the young teen. She encourages anyone who might be interested in challenging themselves on and off the stage to consider the Miss Teen Canada competition in future years. Those wishing to cheer Lamothe on can do so from the comfort of their home July 20 as the national pageant is planned to be live aired online. For further details on this and other updates of Lamothe’s experience please follow her on her blog: www.missteenlanarkcounty.com.

2013 VW Jetta Turbo Hybrid: The Un-hybrid Auto Know BRIAN TURNER

and out of. The hybrid version brings the added benefit of the placement (low and rear) and weight of the drive batteries. This improves the stability of an already stable sedan and gives it large-car surefootedness on the highway with an exceptionally quiet ride. If you’re taking off from a stop or accelerating at speed to pass or merge, the Jetta Turbo Hybrid is decidedly un-hybrid-like in its manners bringing you into demeritpoint range in mere seconds. And on the carbon-footprint side, it’s capable of travelling up to 70 kph on electric drive only. There’s a small sacrifice to cargo space in the trunk of the Jetta thanks to the drive-batteries. Capacity is 11.3 cubic feet, while a non-hybrid Jetta has 15.5 cubic feet of trunk space. On the operating costs front, a dealership oil change for the hybrid will run around $100 using the recommended synthetic oil. Front brake pads and rotors are $120 and $102 respectively and an air filter is only $26. The P205/50R17 tires Submitted photos my Jetta wore are available from a very large range of makers in Pictured: The Jetta Turbo Hybrid offers a high performance automobile with a small carbon trail (above and the $150-$250 each price region. below left) . VW backs their Jettas with a fouryear/80,000 km base warranty, a fiveyear/100,000 km power-train plan and the hybrid system is covered for eight years/160,000 km. Canada’s NRCan rates the fuel economy of the hybrid at 4.5 L/100 km city and 4.2 L/100 km highway (62.8 mpg and 67.3 mpg respectively). The EPA of the U.S. Our past.

EMC Lifestyle – The vehicles I road-test for these reviews (yes, it’s a tough job, but I’m willing to make sacrifices), come from two main sources: press fleets owned by the Canadian head offices of the manufacturers and area dealerships. If you are interested in learning more about any of these vehicles, check out the manufacturers’ websites or better yet, call your local dealership and speak to one of their knowledgeable staff. It’s the ultimate in interactive information gathering. The VW Jetta Turbo Hybrid I enjoyed for this review came from the friendly folks at Myers VW in Ottawa West. Gasoline/electric hybrid vehicles are well established in today’s automotive arena with more than 6.3 million units on the road worldwide. Coming in all shapes, sizes, and configurations, it’s hard to make any generalizations about hybrids save this one: few shoppers have driving performance in mind when they are considering a hybrid vehicle. Volkswagen has rewritten that rule in the handbook of their all new 2013 Jetta Turbo Hybrid. First, a step back to remind everyone what a gasoline/electric hybrid vehicle is. It’s a vehicle that propels its wheels by means of both a gasoline engine and electric motor. The drive batteries do not require an external power source but are recharged automatically by the gasoline engine and generators built onto the wheel’s brakes. Most configurations use the electric motors as the primary power source and only engage the gasoline engine when required due to acceleration or load demands or when the drive batteries are low. The Jetta Turbo Hybrid starts the price trek at $27,875 for the Trendline model, and goes up to $30,175 for the Comfortline (my tester from Myers VW). All prices are before dealer prep, destination fees, licensing, or purchase or government incentives. The 1.4 L 4-cylinder engine is rated for 150 HP, but the electric drive effectively adds another 20 HP on peak-demand for a total of 170 HP at 5,000 rpm. Torque (which is what gets you going after all) is rated at 187 lb/ ft and it peaks at an unbelievably low 1,000 rpm thanks to the full-torqueon-demand nature of electric motors. This means no delay or hesitation when you floor the accelerator. For those not familiar with the Jetta platform, it provides a roomy cabin, plenty of rear seat leg and head room, and is very easy to get in

BMO calls on soccer fans across Canada to support local teams

Photo by ASHLEY KULP

EMC News – The Smiths Falls Police Service, in partnership with the Peterborough-Lakefield Police participated in the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics on June 8. The run kicked off at County Fair Mall, continued up Brockville, Beckwith and Elmsley streets, collecting donations along the way, before concluding at the Smiths Falls Memo-

rial Community Centre. The torch run culminated a week of fundraising events for Special Olympics, which included a golf tournament June 5 at the Smiths Falls Golf and Country Club, and a charity road toll at the Cornelia St. underpass on June 7. The road toll brought in a record $11,400. Above, the torch run gets underway.

EMC Sports – Youth soccer teams across Canada still have a chance to bring a $125,000 field to their local community, but time is running out. BMO is encouraging Canadians to nominate their local team for the chance to vie for the title of BMO Team of the Week 2013 Champion, a title that includes $125,000 towards a refurbishment of their local soccer field. BMO has recognized nine teams as a BMO Team of the Week so far this year, and there are six more spots remaining. Each week, over the next six weeks, BMO will select a Team of the Week from the remaining nominees. “This is a great opportunity for soccer fans across Canada to bring national recognition to their community and their young athletes,” said Justine Fedak, senior vice-president, branding, advertising & sponsorships, BMO Financial Group. “Being named BMO Team of the Week 2013 champion would not just be a great source of pride for your community – the grand prize

creates a legacy that the entire community can enjoy well into the future.” The contest, open to youth soccer players aged seven to 12, recognizes local youth soccer teams who demonstrate team pride, spirit, community commitment and passion for the game. Until July 12, Canadian soccer coaches, parents and community members can nominate their favourite youth soccer team at BMOsoccer.com. All 15 weekly BMO Team winners will receive a celebration at their local BMO branch, $500, BMO Team of the Week tracksuits and a $500 donation to a local charity. Each of the winning teams will become finalists for the grand prize and vie for the title of BMO Team of the Week 2013 Champion, a title that is decided by the Canadian public through online daily voting at BMOsoccer. com from Aug. 5 to 19. BMO supports soccer across Canada from youth players in local neighbourhoods and communities, up to the professional level.

JUNE

“WE REMEMBER” Just inside the main entrance of the C.R. Gamble Funeral Home is a book of remembrance. Each day we turn a page in the book. The names of those we have served are inscribed on that date along with the year in which they passed away. It is our way of honouring and remembering a life that was lived. It is

also our way of saying “thank you” to the many families who have shown confidence in us since we came to Almonte in 1973. Some families are unable to visit this book on the anniversary of the death of those they love. For this reason we are proud to publish these names weekly as our way of saying…“We Remember”.

MOLYNEAUX, Nina - My mother was born January 17th, 1921 in the small hamlet of Canonto Ontario. On June 23rd, 2008 at 3:00 am heaven announced that Nina Mabo will be arriving with the angels to meet her Lord and Saviour. Mother had a wonderful life, dedicated friend and soul mate for 50 years to my dad Wilmer Molyneaux who predeceased her on March 21st, 1993. Those fortunate enough to know her, will share in the grief and sadness, her children Michael, Mark and Donna May. After living her life with enduring love battling through the ravages of illness, I deeply mourn her passing. Mother is where she longed to be with dad, they are now together side by side in heaven with the angels. In a letter from Mother in September of 2007, the last time I ever saw her, when at home she reminded me of three things, God, her family and friends, and last her home, where she loved to be. She always welcomed everyone with a beautiful smile that no man could ever match. Mother was greatly admired and respected by those around her, she would brighten up a room with her smile and brought joy to many. Mother loved to have a good time, and now she is singing with the angels and dancing with the stars. What a happy reunion she is having with all her loved ones gone on before her. As saddened as I am with her passing, I who benefited and loved her so much, know in my heart she will always be near. Just call my name and I will answer. Until we meet again in God’s beautiful Kingdom, love never dies. Your loving son, Mark Crawford Calgary AB. FOURNIER, Paul- June 22, 2006. Always missed, Marg and family MOLYNEAUX, Nina - Has it really been 5 years since you left us, Nina? Forever etched in our hearts. Barb and families

EMC News – The annual celebration of arts, heritage and culture, Doors Open, took over Smiths Falls Sunday, June 9. Nineteen sites opened their doors to give the public an opportunity to explore. Left, at the Rideau Environmental Action League (REAL), tours were offered of the organization’s garden and grounds, as well as the store. Above, on Russell St., artists previewing the Art Journey studio tour, held June 15 and 16, showcasing their works.

Reader provides positive feedback for Car Counselor EMC Lifestyle - It was nice to get some good news follow-up from a reader. “Dear Mr. Turner, I contacted you a year or so ago regarding the failure of the ball joints and tie-rod ends of my 2007 Jeep Patriot after only 60 kilometres. The repair price quoted by my dealership Dodge was very steep - some $1,500. I was able to find a reputable shop that did it for $1,100, the main difference being higher labour costs at the dealer. The staff at the latter told me that since my warranty was expired, there was no way they could reduce the price. You advised that I should have gone directly to the general manager of the dealership and it is likely that some accommodation could have been achieved. An opportunity arose recently for me to reopen the file, this time with the Dealer Principal of Southbank, Mr. Guy Parker. I am happy to say that he agreed to a settlement in the spirit of what you described as a “goodwill request.” It is not a perfect solution, but fair under the circumstances. This action has restored my confidence in Southbank Dodge and my original assessment of it as an outstanding dealership. In this respect, Mr. Parker reflects that high esteem. In closing, I thank you for your valuable advice.” Best regards, Sean Henry Ottawa Some wheels move slowly but at least in the right direction. Vehicle maintenance requirements as recommended by automakers have changed much in the last few years. Car companies of almost every stripe have stretched intervals in terms of time and mileage. And other than fluid and filter changes and the odd spark plug replacement, there is very little detail as to various other systems and components of very complex machinery other than the word ‘inspect’. While vehicle technology has greatly progressed to improve efficiencies, performance, safety, and comfort, there are still many areas of today’s vehicle that carry designs unchanged much from decades ago. Vehicle brakes, steering, and suspension components like many other things THE EMC - 43 - Thursday, June 20, 2013

ponents and what you can and can’t get away with in terms of maintenance and regular inspections.

Car Counsellor BRIAN TURNER

found attached to the lower extremities of an auto for example, are still subject to the same road risks as in years past, and in some cases due to road maintenance cutbacks and lighter weight car materials, these wearable-as-ever parts see greater risks than their automotive ancestors. If this is the case, and from my 35 years of counter-service it is, one might ask why carmakers don’t provide more stringent or detailed maintenance schedules. The answer is competition. It’s all about promoting any edge your product may have over the competition. And in the case of routine maintenance costs: the lower the better. But are we saving ourselves any money and time and inconvenience by stretching things out? Having a bit of lube here or a little rust-grinding there, or an adjustment anywhere (required) can be a cost effective way of operating any vehicle subjected to the daily and seasonal onslaughts that Canadians put their cars through. Not to mention keeping it and its occupants safe. How to know we’re doing enough or not (or even too much) becomes the question(s). Unless we want to take the time to learn and to do our own inspections, the answer is in developing a solid and continual automotive business relationship with a qualified and trusted service provider. It doesn’t mean blindly following every suggestion, but asking questions when services are recommended, such as: will it save me money in the long run? Or what are the risks in putting this off? Good service consultants are pleased to help answer questions, because, if they keep their customers educated and up to date on their vehicles’ needs, it leads to repeat business and increased referrals. In future columns, when space permits (after all, your letters and questions are priority one), I’ll delve into various vehicle systems and com-

I phoned Paul Calderone and told him about Darryl’s letter. Paul remembers a dark green 1953 Meteor convertible in the east end in the early ’70s purchased by his friend John Colley, who repainted it red, dropped a Chev V8 into it, and later sold it. These cars were rare and John’s Meteor is almost certainly the same car that Darryl Ramsay owned. At the time John owned it, Paul had a 1940 Ford convertible (the same car now owned by Keith Summers in Ottawa). Paul and John used to park their convertibles side by side for roof races. On a given signal, they would see whose top would go up or down the fastest. Paul’s top was vacuum-powered off the engine and John’s was electrical. I forgot to ask who won these races. Does anyone know where Darryl’s Meteor is today? 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.”

UCDSB welcomes 2013-14 student trustee EMC News – Rothwell-Osnabruck grade 11 student Tyler Harbers has been elected as the 2013-14 student trustee for the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB). Harbers, who begins his term in August, says he became interested in the role after speaking to the current student trustee, Sydney Collard, who attends Glengarry District High School. “I spoke to her at a Link Crew event, and it got me interested,” he says. Harbers is a member of the UCDSB’s Student Senate, a leadership group for elected senior students throughout the board. He said he loves being a part of the senate, and looks forward to coming back and leading the group next year. “I’m excited to work with the school board too,” he says, adding that he attended a recent board meeting to meet the board members and senior team. “It was an eye-opener,” he says. “But, it was less intimidating than I thought it would be. It was interesting to see how everything works.” Harbers praises Collard for her work as the student trustee this year. “I think she has done a great job,” he says. “I hope to continue with the great work that she’s doing. I want to share students’ opinions and

ideas with the board. I want to help get the student voice heard.” Collard, who is heading off to the University of Calgary to study international relations in the fall, says her experience as student trustee has helped her see what she is capable of. “I’ve learned a lot working with others, but also with myself,” she says. “Even though I am in a leadership role, we’re all one and we’re all equal. The student senators and board members have been very supportive of me. I’m really excited about next year because I know Tyler is so eager to learn and grow.” Brockville Collegiate Institute (BCI) grade 11 student Brie Fraser was this year’s student protégé, and her experiences mirrored Collard’s. “It’s been a really incredible opportunity,” she said. “I was able to represent the student voice, and I learned a lot about the board and myself.” Fraser said the leadership, determination, perseverance, and confidence she’s gained through the experience has been invaluable. “This is definitely going to help me in the future,” she said.

EMC Lifestyle - A letter arrived recently from Darryl Ramsay of Tyne Valley, Prince Edward Island: “Bill, I’m writing about a 1953 Meteor convertible I owned back in ’67. I got the car from Oakwood Auto Body on Rogers Road and Weston Road in Toronto. They had a used car lot out back. I paid $150 for the car and it was so much down and so much a week as shown from the scribbling on the receipt. “The car was that orange-red colour that was common for that year. I sold the car in April ’68 and it ended up on Queen Street in the east end. It was painted a dark green and I used to see it when I went out to my uncle’s place at Jones and Queen. It was there until 1972. Never saw it after that. “I have often seen ’53s for sale in Ontario through the years and wondered if one was mine. I kept all my old bills of sale for cars and just about everything else from back then and I found the serial number of my Meteor on one of those papers: #0176H5366206. (The ‘H’ indicates Darryl’s car was built in Windsor whereas cars built in Oakville that year had ‘K’ in their serial numbers). “Maybe someone knows where my car is today. It was rare even when I owned it. I have old bills from the Do It Yourself Garage at 300 Greenwood Ave. A lot of people used to go there. I guess it’s no longer in business. I haven’t lived in Toronto since 1970.” I lived in Toronto for many years and have some old car buddies who live in the east end.

In a discussion group format, educators reflected on the learning process and collaborative inquiries in numeracy and literacy, by asking questions, challenging one another’s thinking, and making connections to their own practice. School teams collected and shared evidence of increased student achievement which went beyond data, including student work, video/audio recordings, photographs, exit cards, data charts, and anecdotal notes. Attendees also had the opportunity to hear

a keynote address from Sonja Karsh, a student achievement officer for the Literacy and Numeracy Secretariat, who discussed the highleverage teaching strategies woven into the school inquiries, as well as the importance of the “co’s” (co-planning, co-teaching, codebriefing, co-reflecting). These methods have been widely adopted by the school teams participating in the initiative, with the intent to implement and embed these strategies into the teaching culture within all schools. A video presentation of highlights from the day was played for the board. The video can be viewed on the CDSBEO YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/CDSBEOVideo). New student trustee introduced Catholic student trustee, Sean Fry, had an opportunity to introduce Terron James to the board of trustees. James, currently a grade 11 student at Notre Dame Catholic High School in Carleton Place, was elected as the new Catholic student trustee for 2013-14 at the Student Senate meeting held in May. “I am eager, and excited to take on the challenges of representing 13,000 students,” emphasized James, who will be officially begin her term when she is sworn-in at the Aug. 27 board meeting.

EMC News – The following are highlights from the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario’s June 4 board of trustees meeting at the board office in Kemptville. Superintendent of School Effectiveness, Dr. Donaleen Hawes, presented to Trustees a draft copy of the annual report on the provisions of special education programs and services, to be submitted to the Ministry of Education. The special education plan for 2013-2014, as outlined in the Standards for School Boards’ Special Education Plans, has been compiled through consultation with stakeholders and key participants. The report includes recommendations to be implemented, including staffing allocations for schools, professional development plans for communication, and parent involvement. In addition, the report makes accommodations for new requirements recently implemented by the Ministry of Education under Policy Program Memorandum 155, Diagnostic Assessment in Support of Student Learning. Special education funding for the board is based on several grants provided by the Ministry of Education. In addition to the Special Education Per Pupil Amount (SEPPA) and the High Needs Allotment, the board provides funding from the Learning Opportunities Grant for prevention and early intervention

Strong cast serves up epic retelling of Superman tale

My Take MARK HASKINS

General Zod (Michael Shannon). Zod and his commanding officers survived the destruction of Krypton, locked away in the Phantom Zone. When Krypton exploded Zod and his people were freed. They soon began searching the galaxy for a way to rebuild Krypton which is why they’ve come to Earth. Zod would use Clark, and the genetic information locked inside him, to rebuild Krypton. If Clark can’t stop Zod all of humanity will be wiped out. Man of Steel has a lot going for it. The scope of the story is epic as it attempts to give the audience insight into who Superman is and the events that make him a hero. It’s thrilling, exciting and larger than life.

The cast is flawless. I loved Amy Adams as Lois Lane. Russell Crowe is a fantastic choice to play Jor-El, and Kevin Costner and Diane Lane are perfect as the Kents. Of course the film is nothing without Henry Cavill and Michael Shannon. Cavill is a truly great Superman, and as every hero needs his villain, Cavill has Shannon who delivers a brilliant performance. The special effects are mind blowing. This is how a Superman movie should look and feel. This is how gods wage war among mortals. It is stunning from the first look at Krypton to the final battle that levels half of Metropolis. With all that’s good in Man of Steel it is a shame the film is so choppy. It jumps all over the place. Snyder needs another 20 minutes to make his scene transitions smoother, but he doesn’t have it. On top of that the fight scenes are incredibly hard to follow. I understand Snyder wants his Kryptonians to be god-like, and has them moving at god-like speed, but you have to remember your audience is mortal. A little slow motion and a few freeze frames would have gone a long way. Man of Steel is great spectacle but the execution is a little off. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

MOVIE: Man of Steel STARRING: Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Russell Crowe, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner and Michael Shannon DIRECTOR: Zack Snyder RATING: PG EMC Entertainment - Man of Steel is an ambitious and daring retelling of Superman’s story. It’s a true spectacle, but Zack Snyder may have over-reached. Snyder begins on Krypton with Kal-El’s birth, and the events that force his parents, Jor-El (Russell Crowe) and Lara Lor-Van (Ayelet Zurer), to send him to Earth. We then get glimpses of Clark’s (Henry Cavill) time growing up with his adopted parents, Jonathon Kent (Kevin Costner) and Martha Kent (Diane Lane). We also watch him make his way through the world alone until he finds a piece of his past. Clark learns that the military has found a crash site. Clark explores the site, and discovers an ancient Kryptonian scouting craft. Once onboard he inserts a small control key from his own space ship and meets his father. The holographic recording of Jor-El’s consciousness teaches Clark about his past, the destruction of Krypton and the crimes of
