EMC News - Ever since the day Jim Pevere of Smiths Falls landed from his stint at the NATO base in Germany he has found a unique camaraderie among fellow veterans at the local branch of the Royal Canadian Legion. And he invites others with any military service to join him. “In the area we have so many people that have served in the Canadian Forces,” Pevere said. “It would be nice if we could get them affiliated with the Legion.” Pevere served in the First Battalion of the Royal Canadian Regiment in Germany during the cold war threat of 1962 to 1964. An allied force was stationed there for security until the wall fell in 1989. Pevere has found that many of his peers find it hard to see themselves as veterans because their work put them behind a desk and not in a fox hole. He urges all former uniformed servicemen and women to see their work as necessary to maintaining peace and so worthy of Legion assistance and the social benefits that go with that. “I always had felt that camaraderie,” Pevere said. Since retiring from uniformed service in the 1960s Pevere has been an active member in the Legions where he has lived. His dedication to the branch was born when he volunteered to visit a Westport area air force veteran by the name of Art Briggs-Jude. “When I saw how important the Legion’s work is in getting help to older ex-servicemen, I wanted to do a little more,” Pevere added. Since moving back to town about three years ago Pevere has been wading into the work done at Branch 95 in Smiths Falls and offering his support. This year Pevere serves as the Ladies

“When I saw how important the Legion’s work is in getting help to older ex-servicemen, I wanted to do a little more.” JIM PEVERE LEGION MEMBER

The Governor General took the time to pin a poppy on each individual present and asked them their connection to the Legion and their service before moving on.

Jim Pevere served with the NATO forces in Germany from 1962-64. Upon his retirement from the military Pevere has enjoyed the camaraderie found at various Legion halls and has found pleasure in sharing his thoughts on Remembrance Day with school children. Auxiliary liaison, has volunteered to visit local schools to speak about the Legion and Remembrance Day and will shortly be starting to tour the five retirement homes in the area to visit local veterans. In each visit the message the

local veteran brings is the same. “The key to Remembrance Day is that it will always be remembered,” Pevere said. That promise was made to the families who lost their loved ones due to the war ef-

fort and has been maintained to this day. Part of ensuring this promise remains intact is having younger veterans get involved in spreading the message of remembrance. In fact, any resident of the town is welcome to support the Le-

Remembrance Day service schedule This year’s Nov. 11 service begins with a small contingent of Legion members who will leave the Legion at 9:45 a.m. heading to the former arena on Elmsley Street for the first observance and laying of wreaths. This group will then travel to the library cenotaph where the same ceremony will be held. Following this, the Legion members will return to the Legion in preparation for the big departure a little before 11 a.m. At this time the Remembrance Day parade will leave the legion to go to Veterans Memorial Park on Beckwith Street for the third and final celebration. Seating will be available for elderly veterans at the service.

Bears to honour fallen war heroes on and off the ice emconline.ca

EMC News - The Smiths Falls Bears and Central Canada Hockey League (CCHL) are proud to enlist in Veterans Week (November 2-11) and honour the many who fought and sacrificed for this great country which we enjoy today. Players from all 12 teams

will be wearing a poppy on their helmets, the poppy being a symbol commemorating fallen soldiers. The teams will all host a ceremonial puck drop with a local veteran and distribute special pins to the first 200 fans. For the Bears, that will take place this Friday when

they take on the Cornwall Colts. Game time is 7:30 p.m. The month of November is going to be a busy one for the CCHL as it has also enrolled in “Movember” which raises funds for prostate cancer and mental health. Tony House, VP Communications is looking forward to both

campaigns. “We just want to do our part both on and off the ice – we’re more than just hockey and I’m pleased that we’ve come together to back two great causes.” The whole league is behind it from management, coaching staffs, players and even league referees. House adds,

The Heritage Perth Christmas House Tour is back; Get your tickets now EMC Events - For the seventh year the women of CFUW Perth (Canadian Federation of University Women) invite you to join us Dec. 1 – 2 and visit eight unique area homes in support of our major focus— funding education initiatives. In addition to a tour of these wonderful homes you’ll come away with dozens of ideas for decorating your dining rooms for the Christmas Season— this year’s focus. Plus, you can do some Christmas shopping at our first ever CFUW member gift fair to be held at the Best Western Plus Perth Parkside Inn & Spa. Perth is home to many artists and several will be making their products available to our visitors and donating a share of their proceeds to our cause. Below are the descriptions of a few stops on the tour. Perth was created by the establishment of a military settlement after the War of 1812. Annsfield, built by Lieutenant Alexander Fraser was completed in 1823—the stone details above the front door and the large windows demonstrate the superior skills of the masons who built it. It has been carefully restored and modified by the three families who’ve lived there to maintain its graciousness and historical integrity. Perhaps you dream of buying an old character home but want all the ‘modern’ conveniences. Originally only 440

After several modifications it is a perfect example of how you can create an up-to-date twenty-first century home while protecting the original floor-plan and historical feel of the original. Another prominent landmark in the Town of Perth. Completed in 1888, it exem-

plifies Victorian Italianate architecture, including the second storey “widow’s walk’, the large bay windows, an intricately-carved Italian marble fireplace and frieze and an original pewter chandelier. It has recently been purchased by a retired couple who are continuing to develop the legacy of the house with an upcoming kitchen renovation.

Perhaps the most unique home on the tour is - a twostorey condominium created within a stone structure built in 1883 as a factory. The building is now a designated Heritage Site and provides residential housing with high ceilings and attractive balconies overhanging the Little Tay River – part of Stewart Park in the centre of Perth. On both days of the tour, complimentary refreshments will be served by the Parkside Inn and Spa, also home of the Gift Marketplace. The hotel is offering a special package for visitors who plan to stay overnight. Well-priced meals with express service will be served at local restaurants as well as a church locale. Tickets are limited and currently on sale in Ottawa (Tivoli Florists), Kingston (Trugs Home), Almonte (Smitten), Smiths Falls (Elizabeth Interiors) and in Perth at Home Furniture. You can also order them by calling 613 2672270.

Help on the way for Lanark farmers; funding announced By CHRIS MUST

EMC News - How dry were some parts of Ontario this summer? According to Ontario Federation of Agriculture President Mark Wales, “A grasshopper would have to pack a lunch to cross the township.” Wales toured Lanark and Renfrew Counties in August. “I saw a lot of dead cornfields, I saw a lot of dead pasture, and I didn’t see a lot of hay. By that stage it hadn’t rained for several months.” For local farmers struggling to feed their livestock in the aftermath of the prolonged drought, help is on the way. At Lanark Hay East, a fundraising event hosted by the Almonte Civitan Club Saturday, Nov. 3, Ottawa Centre MPP Yasir Naqvi announced that joint federal and provincial aid to bring donated hay from farms in Alberta, Saskatch-

ewan and Manitoba has been approved. The federal and provincial governments will jointly contribute up to $500,000 toward the cost of transporting hay from the west, said Naqvi. They have also committed to matching donations from the public to the Hay East program to a maximum of $2.5 million. “This will move a lot of hay,” said Wales. Funds raised from the Lanark Hay East fundraiser Nov. 3 came in over $15,000, with more funds expected to spill in. Some hay has already reached Lanark County. Fourteen bales, each weighing 1,550 pounds, arrived at the Almonte area farm of Warren Leitch and Lori McRae on Wednesday, Oct. 31. The hay was donated by a farmer in Leeder, SK. “It should get us through

the winter,” said Leitch. “It’s beautiful hay,” added McRae. “The cattle were around it like a magnet.” Before the donated hay arrived, the family was afraid they might have to sell part of their herd of beef cattle. They had acquired a supply of hay earlier in the year, but were forced to feed it to their animals at the beginning of June. The second cut of locally-grown hay they had been counting on failed to materialize. An 18-acre field yielded only 35 tiny bales. McRae made a point of calling the Saskatchewan farmer who donated his hay to help the struggling Lanark County producers. “He was actually surprised that we took the time to phone him,” she recalled. “I thought I was going to start crying, so I took a deep breath.” Another farm in the Mab-

erly area has received 15 bales of donated hay. For these farms, and many others in Lanark, Renfrew and the Pontiac region of Quebec, this hay is critical to their continued sur-

vival. Without this assistance, most of these farms will run out of feed for their livestock by January or February. Several months without rainfall has deprived the pro-

ducers of the locally-grown hay they normally count on to feed their cattle, sheep, goats and horses. See HAY page 5

Lanark County councillors answered the call to donate special cakes from each of their municipalities to be auctioned at the Lanark Hay East fundraiser held in Almonte Nov. 3. From left, some of the county councillors with their local creations included Peter McLaren of Lanark Highlands, Sharon Mousseau of Beckwith, John Fenik of Perth, Val Wilkinson of Mississippi Mills, Aubrey Churchill of Drummond/North Elmsley, and Susan Freeman and Keith Kerr of Tay Valley. Top right, at the event MPP Yasir Naqvi, left, announced joint federal and provincial funding to help bring donated hay from the west to area farmers struggling to feed their livestock in the aftermath of this summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drought.

HAY From page 3

Hay that would have been saved for the winter had to be fed to animals during the summer. Area farmers with long memories have stated that there hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been a summer this dry since 1962, said Dave Campbell, key organizer of the Lanark Hay East fundraiser. At that time, said Campbell, hay was also brought from the west to save the day. Eastern farmers returned the favour by donating hay to be shipped west in 2002 when a drought struck the Prairies.

Liz Roffey, who has a farm halfway between Arnprior and Renfrew, said she and her husband had to hire an excavating crew to try to bring water to the surface this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can have all the grass you want, but if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have water...,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They (livestock) are like you or I, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not camels.â&#x20AC;? OFA President Wales said this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drought has also served as â&#x20AC;&#x153;a wake-up call.â&#x20AC;? If this kind of extreme weather becomes the norm, he said, farmers will need to think about creating more on-farm water storage for both livestock and crops. Water stor-

age, he added, will â&#x20AC;&#x153;keep the water table up, and is good for wildlife as well.â&#x20AC;? OFA President Wales said farms in the region require a combined total of 70,000 bales of hay to meet their needs. Thanks to the generosity of western farmers, he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the hay is there; moving it is the challenge now.â&#x20AC;? Wales said both the Canadian National and Canadian Pacific Railways have been allocating rail cars for the project, and trucking services in the west have also offered their services. Hay brought to Lanark County will be unloaded in Smiths Falls for

distribution to area farms. Campbell said the idea for the Lanark Hay East fundraiser, which was a standingroom only event expected to raise several thousand dollars, came about in August. A 14-member volunteer committee met once a month to plan the event, and worked hard to ensure the hall, refreshments and entertainment were all donated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every cent we raise is going to buy transportation for hay,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the community coming together,â&#x20AC;? said Wales.

New OPP East Region facility a tribute to staff, service facility is truly a public building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For us, this belongs to the community,â&#x20AC;? Chief Superintendent Couture said. Plans are underway to host a public open house of OPP East Region in spring 2013. Further details on this event will be available at a later date. Connections to the community may be increasing at the Queen Street facility; according to Chief Superintendent Couture who noted the Smiths Falls high school is interested in working with the forensic lab in some fashion. Smiths Fallsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mayor Dennis Staples was on hand Oct. 30 to congratulate the OPP on a fantastic new facility. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re thrilled that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re

The lab is completely secure and isolated from its adjoining office area. The department now has two garages: one with a lift in it to inspect vehicles involved in crimes (a first for the east region) and the second to house the labâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new vehicles that allow staff to stand up and work within the large van. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leaps and bounds ahead of what we were working with,â&#x20AC;? added Jeff Christink, forensic lab staffer who provided tours of the facility last Tuesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our entire office was probably the size of the two garage bays.â&#x20AC;?

The forensic lab now has a well laid out office that allows them to more easily meet the standard of isolation of evidence, which then helps them in proving a case in a court of law. The new lab has three completely separate biolabs: one for the victim, one for the suspect and one for the crime scene. These labs will be oneway access rooms with two anterooms and negative air pressure throughout. Public open house Chief Superintendent Couture is pleased to see his staff provided with the facilities needed to solve crimes now and into the future, noting the

EMC News - What took five years and many sleepless nights to achieve was a point of great celebration recently when the new Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) East Region headquarters opened in Smiths Falls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To say itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s magnificent,â&#x20AC;? Lanark County Warden and retired OPP officer, John Gemmell said before pausing to collect his thoughts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beyond words.â&#x20AC;? He spoke on behalf of the many retired officers who returned to their former headquarters Oct. 30 when he congratulated the organization on providing their staff with a working environment that is truly state-of-the-art. OPP East Region Chief Superintendent Gary Couture said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been thinking of Gemmell, who had served as the in-service training leader, during the one-year building process. Those who took part in a building tour last week saw the brand new indoor training facility complete with rubberized flooring for shock absorption. The two floor, 50,000 square foot facility has a multitude of improvements in virtually every corridor and section. The second floor office areas are sectioned off into units with department commanders and their staff in close contact. The building is also considered environmentally efficient with motion sensor lights in each office. Consideration has also been given to the visually impaired as all office signs have Brail and the staircase has a bright red, texturized landing for easier identification. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are committed to giving our police officers the tools they need to do their job,â&#x20AC;? added Yasir Naqvi, Ottawa-Centre member of provincial parliament and representative for Madeleine Meilleur, minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those who protect us deserve the best possible work place environment.â&#x20AC;? The opening of the East Region building is one of 18 facilities in 16 communities being constructed under the OPP Modernization Project. The agreement between Shield Infrastructure Partnership and Infrastructure Ontario is valued at $292.7 million and includes the building, design and maintenance of the facilities for 30 years. OPP Commissioner, Chris Lewis congratulated the staff of East Region for their commitment to providing seamless service through the construction project and move that was completed on Sept. 26. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This has been a difficult process for you guys,â&#x20AC;? Commander Lewis added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My hat is off and [I give you] my applause.â&#x20AC;? Bernie Murphy, Superintendent director for the behavioural, forensic and electronic services, spoke at the opening as the forensic lab received

here in Smiths Falls,” the mayor said. The building of the new headquarters became a reality after many late night negotiations in 2009. Discussions between the town and neighbouring township of Montague went late into the night and wrapped up just hours before a deadline that would see the two communities split revenue 50-50 in perpetuity. This deal was necessary for the town to acquire the land and provide water and sewer services to the new OPP facility - a must for the building. The OPP was officially formed in 1909, though the East Region headquarters wasn’t established until 1997. At this time Districts 9, 10 and 11 were combined to create the new region and staff occupied a space in the then Rideau Regional Centre. “We have come a long way ladies and gentlemen,” Chief Superintendent Couture said. The east region serves the communities from the Quebec border to Quinte West,

encompassing the entire National Capital region and right up to the New York State border creating a truly diverse catchment area of urban, rural, forest and international law.

Clockwise from top left: The new indoor training room; the incident command room which will be available for ongoing meetings should another regional disaster like the ice storm of 1998 take place again; Bernie Murphy, Superintendent director for behavioural, forensic and electronic services; and Chris Lewis, OPP Commissioner.

COMMENTARY

Time to remember our true heroes

Photo by KATHY BOTHAM

Signs of the fall are everywhere. These acorns and pumpkins were on display recently in Kemptville.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Marking a period of remembrance DEAR EDITOR: Once again Remembrance Day will soon be upon us. A time for Canadians of all ages to remember the more than one hundred thousand fellow citizens who fought, bled and died protecting our freedoms along with the countless others who have served our country. But Remembrance Day should not only be reserved to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice. It should also be a practical remembrance of the living – the disabled Veterans, RCMP members, widows, widowers, orphans and family members of those who served who are in need of a helping hand. Members of the Royal Canadian Legion are, as one of their core responsibilities, the Guardians of Remembrance. The Poppy Campaign organized by the Legion, in conjunction with Remembrance Day, helps alleviate suffering and addresses the needs of Veterans and their families who may not have the financial wherewithal for basic necessities. The Legion assists with purchasing medical equipment, awarding bursaries for needy students, providing support services such as

meals-on-wheels and drop-in centres and helping with some basic residential repairs to name but a few. So much of the Legion’s work in our communities goes unnoticed. Every day this organization of more than 330,000 people makes significant contributions, not only to enhance the lives of Veterans, but also for seniors, Cadets, Scouts, Guides, as well as serving members of the Canadian Forces and RCMP and their families. The Legion remains fiercely proud to be Canada’s largest Veterans services organization. Our advocacy work on behalf of all who have served in the Canadian Forces and RCMP ensures that they receive life-long support and recognition for their service to this country. Thanks to their desire to give back, the Legion was created and continues to this day to support our communities in countless ways.

EMC Editorial - “In Flanders fields the poppies blow...” words from the famous poem written by John McCrae in 1915. A poem, to this day, most will associate with war time. A poem Lt. Col. McCrae wrote after the burial of a friend who was killed in the gun positions near Ypres, Belgium. This Remembrance Day, as is tradition, we will remember them. At the 11th hour of the 11th day of the eleventh month, many thousands of Canadians, young and young at heart, will gather across the country and truly place meaning in the saying, “Lest we forget”. Those who fought for our freedom in World War I and World War II as well as in Korea and Afghanistan and who served on many peacekeeping missions will be honoured and remembered. Locations throughout Lanark, Leeds and Grenville will be featuring Remembrance Day ceremonies and events to ensure the memory of days gone by will never be forgotten. Cenotaphs will be visited, wreaths laid and poppies placed. Remembrance and respect for those who put their lives on the line, and for those who paid the ultimate price should not just happen one day of the year. And there are students and projects in the area who are ensuring that the tribute and legacy veterans have left us will always remain at the forefront of our minds. It’s a legacy which should be taught and instilled in the minds of our young people as they make their way through school. The importance of the ultimate sacrifice made by so many of our men and women, must never be forgotten. Their stories must be told, their bravery shown. “We are the dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields.” Those wishing to commemorate Remembrance Day in their own communities should visit their municipal and Royal Canadian Legion websites for information on when observances will be taking place. Lest we forget.

Sugar bowl represented so much more than egg money for Mother EMC Lifestyle - It was a blue sugar bowl. Much larger than the one we used every day on the kitchen table. Father said it had been in his family as long as he could remember. It wasn’t used for sugar anymore, though. It was where Mother kept her egg money. It had a matching jug too, but it just stood beside the sugar bowl, and was never used. I figured the reason Mother used the sugar bowl for her egg money, and not the jug, was because it had a lid on it. To protect what was inside, sort of. Goodness knows we kids would never dare go into the sugar bowl without permission, although sometimes, if we had tired of looking around Eaton’s catalogue in an evening of sitting around the kitchen table, Mother would let me take down the sugar bowl, and count her egg money. Mother never heard of egg

money when she moved to that back woods farm in Renfrew County after living 18 years in New York City. But it was Aunt Bertha, Mrs. Beam too, who told her about saving a penny here, and a penny there, and it was to be hers alone. Mrs. Beam snorted when she told mother about it being hers alone though. Sadly Mother soon found out what she meant. Now, about the egg money. It was Mother’s challenge to keep money in the sugar bowl. That meant that every week she went into Renfrew and peddled her wares door to door. At first, Mother thought

that that meant just peddling eggs. But Aunt Bertha was quick to show her how she could add greatly to her egg money. “It’s not just from selling eggs, you know,” she told Mother. Everyone in Renfrew likes a fresh chicken now and again Aunt Bertha said. Soon Mother added sticky buns, freshly churned butter and homemade soap to her wares. Once she tried selling small braided rugs, and hand sewn aprons, but she soon found out the women of Renfrew were just as busy themselves as she was making rugs and aprons. Aunt Bertha said the money could be used for anything she wanted. New print from Walker Store, maybe a fresh pair of lisle stockings. But Mother had other plans for her egg money. She longed to go back to New York. Not to stay of course, which was always a

fear deep in my heart, because she talked about the place so often and I knew how much she missed the life she once led. No, it would be just for a visit to spend a few days with her friend Rosie… and maybe go to an opera again, or visit the museums she loved. Yes, she longed for just one trip back to New York, and her wish was that one day there would be enough egg money in the blue sugar bowl to go back for a visit. Often, at night, she would take the bowl down from the back to the wall cupboard and spread the money out on the oilcloth on the kitchen table. She would count and stack the coins in order, and if there were any bills, she would flatten them out and put a salt shaker on them to hold them flat. And then, she would write the amount and the date on a slip of paper and tuck it into the sugar bowl with the money. And back it would go

on the shelf in the cupboard. There would be a big sigh. Never would there be enough money for the trip back to New York. And it wasn’t because she would dip into it for something frivolous like silk stockings or a new hat. No the reason was much simpler than that. It would be because Father would have had to have some of the few coins she had worked so hard to accumulate. Father never had more than a few cents in his overall pockets. And so, when something wore out, like it often did on the farm, or a new piece of harness was needed, inner tubes to replace the well, patched ones on the car, or even maybe, a new plow point, it was from the egg money Father would have to go. There would be so much sadness on such a day. I always dreaded being in the kitchen when that happened. Father would come in from

the barns, stop just inside the kitchen door, and pause as if he was undecided where he was heading. If Mother was busy at the stove, or at the wash tub, she would pause for just a moment, and a look of sadness would come over her face. Father would slowly walk over to the cupboard, and take down the blue jug and take out a few coins, or one or two of the bills, cram them into his overalls’ pocket and quietly quit the house. Not a word would be spoken. We would hear him leave the yard in the wagon or buggy, and I would know he was headed into Renfrew or to Briscoe’s General Store with a few coins from Mother’s egg money to get what was needed to keep the farm going. And I would know that once again, Mother’s dream of a trip back to her beloved New York was as far away as ever.

Provincial health strategy needed, but doubts remain amongst front line workers in Lanark County By DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com EMC News – When it comes to Ontario’s new 10-year mental health strategy, David North doesn’t know whether to shout hallelujah or get on his knees to pray. Last week, Nicki Collins, executive director of Open Doors for Lanark Children and Youth, praised the initiative, remembering when the story was leaked to the press. “That strategy was a hallelujah,” said Collins with her trademark smile. “We had been waiting so long for a strategy on child mental health.” North, executive director of TriCAS (Tri County Addiction Services), would have liked to have shouted out a hallelujah, but couldn’t quite bring himself to do so. “I’m not as keen on aspects of the 10-year program as I would like (to be),” said North. “We think it is healthy to be skeptical.” “Open Minds, Healthy Minds,” which is billed as “Ontario’s comprehensive mental health and addictions strategy, has just ended its second year of implementation, and is headed into its third. The first three years, according to Anne Moloney, community services consultant with the Ontario Ministry of Children and Youth Services, are dedicated to children and families, before opening out province-wide thereafter to improve mental health for all Ontarians, partly by identifying problems early on. Funding for the program is expected to grow to $93 million by 2013-14. “When we look at the numbers in terms of the economic situation, I think that is an encouraging aspect of this,” said Moloney during her overview of the program at the Municipal Drug Strategy committee’s networking day at the Brunton Community Hall in Blacks Corners, Beckwith Township, on Friday, Oct. 26. She stressed that the program was a multi-ministry collaborative approach, incorporating not only her ministry but also the ministries of training, colleges and universities and health and long-term care. “It creates this culture of shared responsibilities,” said Moloney, with, for example, a community mental health project linked with an educational component, which places mental health workers in schools. “All of our boards, all of our schools, were quite accommodating,” said Moloney. It is hoped that the program will cover a multitude of problems, such as reducing mental health wait times, identifying and intervening with children earlier, closing service gaps, and transitioning kids back into the education system. However, increased awareness can be sometimes too successful, said Moloney, because “increased awareness leads to increased demand,” which then requires increased time, money

and coordination. She added that tele-psychiatry “is coming. It’s not here yet.” But Moloney conceded that there was still a long way to go with the program. She quoted America’s president from 1901 to 1909, Teddy Roosevelt, who said “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.” “That sums up what we need to do,” said Moloney. “(Let’s) take advantage of the increased attention towards mental health and addictions (and) reduce and do away with the stigmas attached to it.” While grateful to Moloney for her talk and her time, North served as a one-man loyal opposition and wasted no time in pointing out what he saw as the flaws and deficiencies in the program. “What is the actual impact of the policy which was developed at a high level?” said North. “What does this really mean for the people we are trying to serve?” The policy was being developed at a time before the 2011 provincial election and the Drummond Report, and therefore things looked very different even a few short years ago. He noted that there are now proposals either afoot, or which have already been implemented, to privatize parts of legalized gambling. “When you move over to the private sector, there is less control,” said North. As for the Drummond Report, there is ongoing discussion about constrictions with public sector pay, from doctors to teachers, police officers to politicians. “You have problems with retention of staff,” said North, affecting the ability of health services to deliver their programs, and challenges in recruiting. “Right now, there is nothing hitting the ground in terms of funding,” said North. “Our costs relative to compensation are very problematic,” but there is nothing in the policy to deal with that. With pay freezes already in place, wage discrepancies and differing mandates could also impact the delivery of the pro-

gram. With the much-vaunted three-ministry, multi-agency approach, some agencies could be partnering with other agencies that do similar work, and “when they are making $5,000 more or $5,000 less, there is an implicit tension.” Sara Hammel, TriCAS’s health promoter, agreed with her boss that, in the addictions field, there were competing visions about what even an addiction is, ranging from: • lifestyle choice • moral failing • chronic medical condition • mental health issue • treatable medical condition • averse social conditions. “Addictions seem to be appended on to mental health,” said Hammel. “When we change how we look at addictions it changes how we choose to address it.” She added that there were even inconsistencies within the Drummond Report, which noted that addictions and mental health are “cost drivers. Addictions and mental health have a lot of costs associated with them.” At the same time, however, the report by the respected Toronto Dominion Bank economist, also recommended aggressively pursuing the expansion of Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO) outlets across the province, as well as expanding points of sale for lotteries, expanding the availability of addictive substances and games. “Gambling costs people a lot more…but at the same time we see that we need to raise funds by harming Ontario’s citizens,” said Hammel. The provincial government recently announced $500,000 for pregnant and parenting women who abuse opiates. “We sure could use $500,000 for addictions, that makes sense in our local area,” said Hammel. There was also money for early mental health problem identification, but not money for follow-up care. “If we have nurses identifying, but no money for followup, it just adds to waiting lists,” said Hammel. “The government has been doing a lot of things that are counter-intuitive.”

She conceded that the provincial government has increased monies for addiction programs by 48 per cent since 2003, with an 80 per cent increase in mental health programs in the same nine year period. Hammel advocated charging more for alcohol, a limit on LCBO and Beer Store hours, as well as entrance fees to casinos, restricting the sale of energy drinks to young people, and a nickel-a-drink tax that would be plowed back in to addiction programs. Hammel, a recent graduate from Carleton University, said she too has been able to deal with her own addiction – she hasn’t lifted a coffee cup in two weeks. Increased demand “The referrals have been coming in hot and heavy these past few weeks,” said Collins of

demand in the area for mental health resources, with a 19 per cent increase in referrals, with a high-water mark of 91 referrals in February alone. Collins commended the mental-healthworker-in-the-school aspect of the program. “They feel that it is their child and health worker,” she said. “She (the nurse) becomes a face in the community. That’s increasing our referrals.” Marcia Gibson, regional manger, east region, for the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Ottawa, praised the program for seeking to bring multiple ministries and agencies together, to have “systems improvement through service collaborations,” and to “focus on families with complex or highly complex needs,” which usually means that a family is accessing more than one agencies help.

A family could be accessing social services, have a member who has a mental health issue, and another who might have had run-ins with the law. Gibson hoped that the multi-agency approach “is seamless so that I don’t have to jump through hoops, so that I don’t go to doors that are closed to me.” But she also admitted that people are used to doing things a certain way, and one agencies way may not jive with another agencies perspective. Also, people are busy and sometimes people “bleed away,” and nothing gets done. “We have to jump in, have a leap of faith, and learn from our mistakes, without impacting children or families,” said Gibson. “I’m grateful for the critical what works, what doesn’t work (comments),” said Moloney at the end of the morning.

Understanding mortgage insurance Buying a home? Renewing an existing mortgage? In either case, there’s something you need to consider. What happens to your home if you should become incapacitated or die? Would your family be able to stay in their home? Most lending institutions offer mortgage insurance when you arrange a mortgage with them and it’s the ‘easy’ way to get coverage. But before you say yes, here are a few things to think about. • The lender’s representative who arranges your mortgage is usually not licensed to sell insurance products and cannot provide you with advice or guidance with respect to the insurance or provide guidance in answering the questions on the enrollment form for mortgage insurance. Here’s what can happen and has been documented in some cases: On the mortgage insurance form, you are asked to answer some general questions about your health and you do so to the best of your ability without realizing that your answers may not provide the full disclosure the insurance company needs. For mortgage insurance, the underwriting (the process of choosing who and what the

Manage Your Money

insurance company will insure) is done at the time of a claim – so while you may believe you are covered, at the worst possible time, that coverage can be uncertain.

• A policy obtained through a lending institution has no cash value and benefits are paid directly to the lender not to your beneficiaries at a time when the money may be required the most.

There’s no doubt insurance is necessary protection for you home and family. But before making the decision, look at other options like getting the coverage you need with a personally owned life insurance policy. A professional advisor can help you select the right insurance for your needs and other protection that fits seamlessly with your overall financial plan.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Other educational workers affected by Bill 115 DEAR EDITOR: There has been a lot of talk about how the recent passing of Ontario Bill 115 – Putting Students First Act has affected teachers and students in schools across the province. I would like to point out that other educational workers, including

secretaries, custodians, educational assistants, Board staff and IT professionals, are also affected negatively by the Act. We are represented by CUPE, and our union was working hard to bargain with our employer, the Upper Canada District School

Board, in the months leading up to the passing of Bill 115. The Bill gives unprecedented power to the Minister of Education to interfere in all collective agreements in the education sector; to review, approve, or re-write any provision of our agreements.

The average CUPE school board worker makes $38,000 annually. Two years with no increase, plus three unpaid days off has a serious impact on our life. The government has gotten themselves into financial difficulty with some bad decisions and is now

feeling the pinch. Their answer to that is to implement legislation that targets a sector that many feel can afford it. CUPE members cannot afford it and it is frustrating to be asked to bear the brunt of this fiscal “quick fix”. Please support the sup-

port workers – we have always put students first. This is not “spin” or a catch phrase invented to make bad legislation more acceptable. This is just how we do our jobs. Sue Bolger Office Administrator, PDCI

Bill 115 an attack on support staff: says reader blow. As an education support worker I am good and mad, and ready to fight back. The Liberals reckless handling of the province’s coffers has initiated Bill 115 as a “finger in the dike” solution to the ravaging wave of provincial debt. Schools run on the dedicated

service of teachers and education support workers. Bill 115 is an attack on custodians, office, clerical and library personnel, education assistants, supervising monitors, early childhood educators, maintenance technicians, information technologists, etc. Along with a wage freeze,

and a forensic dissection of sick leave and retirement gratuities, this bill is an unprecedented attack on free collective bargaining, and allows the government to over-rule freely negotiated collective agreements. Bill 115 is the wholesale hijacking of collective bargain-

ing and as vice president of a Canadian Union of Public Employees Local, I cannot stand by to see that which the labour movement has gained over the years slip through this austerity program. Ask your MPP how he/she voted on Sept. 11? Liberals alone did not carry off this Putting Students First

Bill, Conservative numbers ensured the 82 ayes outnumbered the 15 nays. Putting students first cannot put workers last. As Martin Luther King said “we have a moral obligation to fight unjust laws.” Repeal Bill 115. Lois Linttell, Vankleek Hill, Ontario

REAL ESTATE

EMC News - Canada’s new and existing home markets are expected to moderate through the end of 2012 and into 2013, according to Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation’s (CMHC) third quarter 2012 Housing Market Outlook, Canada Edition1. “Canada’s housing markets are expected to moderate over the rest of 2012 and into 2013 after showing sustained activity levels, specifically in the multiples segment, over the first half of 2012. Balanced market conditions in most local housing markets will result in a slowing in house price growth as well,” said Mathieu Laberge, Deputy Chief Economist for CMHC. On an annual basis, housing starts will be in the range of 196,800 to 217,000 units in 2012, with a point forecast of 207,200 units. In 2013, housing starts will be in the

Memories of Cuban Missile Crisis never fade

EMC Lifestyle - “Okay children, under your desks now – quickly, quickly. “Pull yourself up into a ball, interlock your fingers and put them behind your neck. Make yourself as small as you can! Just as you saw in the film.” The voice was that of my Grade 5 teacher at Stittsville Union Public School. Her name eludes me now, 50 years later. But some of the memories from October 1962 will never fade. This one is the most vivid! We were taking part in a drill. One that every child in our school participated in during that very tense time in world history. Earlier we had watched a film that was available to teach people how to protect themselves. We were preparing for what might happen should our enemy of the time, the Soviet Union, launch a nuclear attack on North America. With Stittsville located so close to Ottawa, the seat of government, we were well within the fallout zone if nuclear missiles struck the city. It was a deadly serious business. Believe me there was no smirking, laughing or tardiness at our school. When the teacher said “assume the position” that’s exactly what we did. I was scared stiff, we all were. By Grade 5 we were old enough to follow the news and we knew the situation was very serious. The world’s greatest powers of the day, the United States of America and the Soviet Union, were teetering on the brink of

Reflections JEFF MAGUIRE

nuclear war and the threat of annihilation hung over all of us like a pall. American President John Fitzgerald Kennedy (JFK) and Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev stood toe-totoe in a potentially deadly confrontation over the presence of Russian nuclear missiles on the Caribbean island of Cuba. The Soviets had placed them there in secrecy. U.S. spy planes had discovered and photographed them and now JFK and the U.S. was demanding the launchers be dismantled and the nuclear warheads shipped back to Russia immediately. In the language of the time “the threat was real and verifiable.” As the world held its breath it came down to whether Kennedy or Khrushchev would blink first. The 13-day Cuban Missile Crisis began on Oct. 16, 1962 when JFK first learned missiles were being installed on Cuba, the nation governed by Fidel Castro which is allied with Russia. I say “is” because 50 years on very little has changed. Castro is elderly and ill but remains a dominant figure even though his brother Raul is now president. Cuba and Russia still cooperate closely. Cuba lies 90 miles off the coast of Florida which made it an ideal launch

pad for Soviet weapons of mass destruction aimed at American and, yes, Canadian targets. The so-called ‘Cold War’ reached its climax during those tense fall days half a century ago. The hands of the “nuclear clock” came as close to midnight as the world has ever seen. There have been other threats since, but none of them scared me as much as the Cuban crisis did when I was a youngster. Invasion threat The Americans led a naval and air force blockade and Kennedy threatened to invade Cuba if the missile launchers weren’t dismantled and the warheads shipped back to Russia. In the end it was the Soviet premier who blinked, perhaps spurred by concerns that Castro could not be trusted with nuclear weapons. We now know that an American invasion of Cuba could also have led to catastrophe. Secretly the Russians had installed over 42,000 troops on the island to help repel any invasion. Some 18 months earlier an American sanctioned attack had employed Cuban exiles trained by the Central Intelligence Agency. The Bay of Pigs Invasion ended in total failure and embarrassment for the

young U.S. president. In October 1962 Kennedy refused to back down. That made him a hero in my eyes and in the opinion of most people living in North America at the time. It’s one reason we were so shocked and saddened when just over a year later Kennedy was felled by assassins’ bullets while riding in a motorcade in Dallas, Texas on Nov. 22, 1963, 49 years ago this month. I say “assassins” because I am a skeptic about the socalled “magic bullet theory” and the lone gunman scenario. But that’s another column! Was Castro involved in Kennedy’s murder? That remains among the conspiracy theories which abound to this day, underlining how much JFK meant to the world during his ill-fated term in office. Now, 50 years later, I recall clearly what we were doing and how worried all of us were during the Cuban Missile Crisis. As children our fear was obviously heightened by the fact our parents were so terrified. It was a very troubling time and the information released publicly since the crisis shows we had good reason to be fearful. Commemoration events marking the 50th anniversary were held across the U.S. during October. In Washington D.C. an exhibition opened at the National Archives titled “Too the Brink: JFK and the Cuban Missile Crisis.” The exhibits include secretly recorded tapes of Kennedy and his advisors as they

worked to avert nuclear Armageddon. As school children our involvement with the Cold War didn’t end with the USSR’s decision to remove missiles from Cuba. The nuclear clock had only been turned back a few minutes. Atomic destruction was still a real possibility that we lived with every day. We still live with it of course but you have to remember that in 1962 nuclear weapons were still relatively new and therefore the concerns about their possible use were front and centre. Today, living in the post 911 environment, terrorism is the reality we face each day. During the Cold War one of the possible safety nets was bomb shelters. Just as the British did during ‘The Blitz’ people around the world were building home bomb shelters in the 1960s. In the spring of 1963 our school trip took a very different twist. Instead of visiting a museum and having a picnic in a park (favourite year-end activities for school classes in the 1960s), we went to the Civil Defence installation at Arnprior. There we toured a bomb shelter. A very unique school trip and one I also remember vividly. After the Cuban crisis there was something very comforting about the thought of a home bomb shelter. Not that we ever had one of course. Most families couldn’t afford the “luxury.”

If you want to visit an installation from that period the best bet in our region is the so-called “Diefenbunker” at Carp. The huge underground installation was where Canadian government was supposed to continue in the event of a nuclear attack. The Prime Minister of the day was John Diefenbaker, hence the nickname. Now dubbed ‘Canada’s Cold War Museum’ the four-storey deep bunker, buried in a hillside on the edge of Carp, provides an opportunity for people who weren’t alive or who don’t remember to learn about the Cold War and its impact on Canadians and our government in the 1960s. A great history lesson! That’s what commemorations like the Cuban Missile Crisis 50th anniversary are all about actually. Despite several opportunities I have yet to visit the Diefenbunker. To be honest I don’t feel the need. I experienced the Cold War first-hand! If you have any comments or questions for Jeff Maguire he can be reached by e-mail at: jeffrey.maguire@rogers.com

Field Naturalists repair Potvin Observation Tower By NEIL CARLETON

EMC Lifestyle - A team of volunteers, all members of the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists (MVFN), assembled about 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 27, just a few hundred meters or so from the Auld Kirk Church, across from the cemetery. This is where you’ll find the entrance to the MVFN’S trail that goes along a cultivated field, and through an abandoned pioneer farm yard. It leads to a unique observation tower overlooking Almonte’s western sanitation lagoon, also known locally as Lake Almonte. Bird enthusiasts from close to home and across the region have been visiting the lagoon site for years to catch a glimpse of many avian species on and around the water. A rare western sandpiper was spotted in 1974. On Saturday morning, the voices of hundreds and hundreds of landing and rising Canada geese echoed across the landscape. With the generous donation of material from Al and the late Barbara Potvin, owners of Hilan Creative Playstructures, the three level observation tower was erected by the MVFN in 1996. A map, along with a satellite view, photos, and a description of the site, is available at http://www. neilyworld.com/neilyworld/ mississippi7.htm. The volunteer team arrived well prepared with wheelbar-

rows and a cart, shovels and a post hole digger, drills, rope, lumber, and a come-along to complete a variety of repairs. Put into service right away was a 1914 Simplex 15 ton railroad jack, model 19. With mechanical simplicity, a low corner that had slowly subsided over the years was easily raised, stabilized, and leveled. In the meantime, the other group was strengthening the structure’s bracing. New balusters were also added to the tower railings. It was indeed a case of many hands making light work.

Submitted photos

The MVFN volunteers posed for a group photo. From left, Michael Macpherson, Sheldon Scrivens, Gary Hanes, Bernhard Gesicki, Al Potvin, Tim Pullen, John Grierson. Absent: Cliff Bennett. Right, MVFN volunteers Michael Macpherson and John Grierson have a low corner of the Potvin Observation Tower jacked up with a Simplex 19.

During the year, Lanark County is home to some 200 different kinds of birds. About 130 migratory birds nest in the county, 32 more are permanent residents, and 35 species migrate through the area to nest in the north. With binoculars or a spotting scope, the MVFN’s Potvin Observation Tower is a good place to look for shorebirds, geese, ducks, herons, and grebes. If you visit, please leave nothing but footprints and take nothing but photos. For a listing of another 31 good locations around Lanark County to look for birds, visit the website of the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists at http://mvfn. ca/?tag=birding&paged=2, and scroll down to the third feature ‘Bird Watching Locations in Lanark County’. As Cliff Bennett notes in his introduction, birding has become a very popular activity for individuals and families alike. Whether driving slowly or walking along county roads, hiking on trails, exploring the forests, or peering across marshes, creeks, and rivers, there’s so much to see and hear. For information about membership, the Young Naturalists program, Monday morning hikes, canoe outings, and our lecture series, please visit the MVFN’s website at http://mvfn.ca/.

Mazureks’ era at Tait’s comes to an end By DOREEN BARNES

EMC News – The long hours starting with waking up in the early morning while it’s still dark to knead the bread or to address equipment issues, are coming to an end for two brothers, Stephen and John Mazurek. For the last 33 years the Mazureks have worked together, side by side to see their Brockville business flourish. As of Saturday, Nov. 10, another pair – a husband and wife team, Perry and Stacey Wenham – will open a new chapter in the long tradition that is Tait’s Bakery. “There was an opportunity for us and we thought it is a great fit,” said Stephen. Located on the original site, 31 King Street West, John Tait started the bakery in 1908. In 1957, Bruce Mazurek bought the bakery business from a former baker of Buckingham Palace, Tait. From that point forward, the Mazureks have proudly continued the tradition of quality bakery items and personal service to their customers. The business expanded under Bruce’s watchful eye into wholesale as well as retail sales of their product lines of signature breads and delicious pastries. Tait’s had a location in downtown Smiths Falls for several years before being sold almost a decade ago. After 22 years Bruce decided to pass the business onto this two sons Stephen and John. Stephen took care of the product baking while John was responsible for the wholesale and retail business. Following in their father’s

Stephen (left) and John (right) Mazurek will be walking out of Tait’s Bakery and Deli soon for the very last time, as owners. Perry and Stacey Wenham will be taking over the business this coming week. This will be the fourth time that Tait’s Bakery has changed hands since 1908. footsteps these brothers, using their ingenuity, wanted to bring the “old world” charm of a European style café. With the expansion and renovations of the property, customers enjoyed sandwiches made from their trademark freshly baked breads with no additives or preservatives; Stone Grain Organic, Historic, Old Fashioned White, Harvest, Harvest Rye, Rye and so many more. Stephen admits that his

personal favourite bread is Harvest Rye. “I like the Harvest Rye as it’s a whole grain for number one, healthy, and tastes very good,” he said. “It’s a combination of great taste and healthy benefits.” Using these breads in a deli sandwich combined with a homemade soup has made for a hearty lunch for shoppers as well as business people. As for their catering division, Stephen and John of-

fered party or business trays of sandwiches, submarines, deli meats, fresh vegetables or assorted fruits, breakfast trays of muffins, croissants, Danish pastries, bagels along with serving platters of cheese. Even though Stephen bakes some of the goods, he definitely has some preferred desserts. “At Christmas time, I like the fruit cake, petit fours and the custard slices,” admitted Stephen. “I’ve always taken

the custard slices home with me at night and I enjoy them to this day.” Over the years, the brothers have seen many, many creative cakes leave their bakery to become a centre piece for birthdays, weddings and anniversaries. Two, three and four layers of fruit, chocolate or vanilla cake artfully decorated into the colour combination and theme of the day. Truly flavourful masterpieces! The Mazureks have a lot of memories regarding customers, community events and business recognitions, but Stephen told of one during a special celebration that tops them all. “I’ll never forget that day, a Saturday. We expected a few people in and I could not believe that on either side of deli/bakery, people were lined right up to the door. This was the only time that I can remember that it was constant, for two hours straight. I’ve never seen this before. Even at Christmas or Easter, I’ve never seen this many people and nobody left.” Stephen shared the business motto as being, ‘do your best to produce a high quality product at a most reasonable price’. Perhaps this is why no one left the line-up during the anniversary celebration, because they knew whatever they ordered they would receive the best that could be offered. As for Stephen Mazurek, he will continue to assist in the transition with the Wenhams for the next six months while John will keep his options open with several ideas

brewing. So on Saturday, November 10, the public is invited to a Tait’s Appreciation Day, as a thank you to all of their customers. “We just want to thank our customers for their loyalty and to give something back,” said Stephen. “We will have some old pictures, treats and would like donations to our favourite charities, the Salvation Army, Leeds and Grenville Interval House and Operation Harvest Sharing.” In addition to donating to their favourite charities over the years, the Mazureks have also donated or catered to sports and fundraising events in the community. “It’s a sense that creates a better feeling of belonging to the community of Brockville and area,” said Stephen. “This is what we try to nurture in our business.” Both Stephen’s father and grandfather believed in helping others which they passed along to their sons and grandsons. Stephen wants Tait’s customers to know that the Mazureks will still be part of the community. “We are just so thankful for the loyal patronage over the years and it is difficult, running a business, especially a family-type business,” indicated Stephen. “We have made changes over the years including the product line and we have done a lot and the people have appreciated it. It goes to show that a hundred years after it started that Tait’s is still in business and I am very confident that a 100 years from now that the legacy will continue.”

THE EMC - 26B - Thursday, November 8, 2012

“They are celebrating their 55th anniversary of service to the community tonight. They have been the key to building the business of this community for more than five decades.” The action was hot and heavy as two well-matched teams played to a draw. Along the way they were guided by wisdom from their own “Don Cherry” (represented in tribute by Ed Holder, MP London West). The United Way Leeds & Grenville serves as an umbrella organization in order to generate funds for the needy in the local community. They support the priority needs where funding is not otherwise readily available, bringing services to individuals, families, the elderly and children living at or below the poverty line. The funding supports more than 100 programs and services delivered by 27 different agencies, all of whom provide vital services to those in need. “Each year, tens of thousands of people from all walks of life give generously of their time to help raise funds, participate on boards and cam-

paign cabinets, determine how best to invest in communities, take part in events and support Leeds and Grenville with their knowledge and expertise,” notes the organization. “The benefits of volunteering are many and include: giving something back to the community, making a difference in someone’s life, sharing your skills, talents and time, helping others, making new friends, gaining experience, etc. You will be investing in solutions to inspire healthy people build strong communities, moving people from poverty to possibility, and helping kids be all they can be.” This year’s total fundraising goal is $1,030,000. So far they are more than half way there. “The real winner for the evening was The United Way of Leeds and Grenville,” said MP Gord Brown. “We raised $112,000. We want to give thanks to everyone who made it such a great success for a great cause.” For more information on the United Way Leeds & Grenville, or to donate, please go to http://www.uwleedsgrenville.org/ , call them at 613-342-8889, or e-mail at unitedway@ripnet.com.


EMC Business - A new, regional business directory shared with seven municipalities through a pioneering, one-source updating model is the latest offering from the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville. The free, online Leeds Grenville Business Directory already has more than 4,000 business listings, and it’s growing daily. Businesses listed on the Counties directory will now be automatically shared with North Grenville, Prescott, Brockville, and the Townships of Augusta, Front of Yonge, Leeds and the Thousand Islands and the Village of Westport through a direct web window. “People have been asking us for a central repository for business information,” said Ann Weir, manager of the Counties Economic Development Department. The Leeds Grenville office developed the initial directory and has been able to customize the directory to each municipality and their brand. The Counties will continue to manage the day-to-day updating. “This innovative approach allows for onesource updating. Information is then directly connected to each participating municipality so you eliminate duplication while freeing up municipal staff time.” Business owners can control their own profile, upload their logo and post updates to the directory hosted on the Counties website at www.leedsgrenville.com/ invest. Upon completion of the business listing, an interactive map will automatically be generated. Consumers and visitors can access the directory to find services, locations, attractions and much more. Businesses not yet listed are invited to go online and create their profiles with the most up-to-date information. “Now our users in North Grenville can see businesses counties-wide,” said Teri Devine, economic development co-ordinator with the Municipality of North Grenville. “And it’s turnkey for business owners as well. When I see a new business open in our area I refer them to the Business Directory link so they can register. It’s direct access. I think it’s great and we’ve had wonderful feedback,” she said. Funding support has come from the 1000 Islands, Grenville and Valley Heartland Community Futures Development Corporations.

Second annual recreation summit on Nov. 14; Keynote speaker Jason Dunkerley EMC Events – Anyone with an interest in organizing and promoting sport and physical activities will want to attend this years’ Recreation Summit to network, learn about local physical activity successes, learn about the newly formed Physical Activity and Recreation Network and gather information about policies and services that may be useful in developing new recreational programs. Who should attend? Parks and Recreation Directors of municipalities, leaders of sports and recreation organizations, service club members who promote recreational activities, and health organizations promoting physical activity as a part of a wellness program. The second annual Recreation Summit will be held Wednesday, Nov. 14, at the Smiths Falls Memorial Community Centre. Check-in will begin at 8:30 a.m. A trade show and refreshments will be

available until the program starts at 9 a.m. Jason Dunkerley, winner of five Paralympic medals, will be the keynote speaker. At the recent London Paralympic Games the visually impaired Dunkerley, 35, and his guide Josh Karanja, won a silver medal in the 5,000-metre race and a bronze in the 1,500-metre race. With previous guide Greg Dailey, he won silver in the 1,500-metre at Sydney in 2000 and at Athens in 2004, and bronze at Beijing in 2008. A panel of experts (Internet (social media), newspaper, radio and TV) will explain how organizations can use media to promote recreational events. Use of social media is exploding, so what do we need to consider before we jump on this bandwagon? This panel should provide everyone with useful ideas and tips to apply in their organization. The afternoon panel will present on local success stories. We will hear: how the

Ottawa University football team partnered with Beckwith Township to play their home games at the Beckwith field this year, of the planning and hosting of the World Broomball Championships staged in Eastern Ontario, and how Making Play Possible is addressing accessibility and linking kids in Leeds/Grenville to recreational opportunities.

of Lanark County respectfully requests to the Premier, Attorney General and Ministry of Community and Social Services that funding for shelters be increased and that actions toward ending violence against women be enhanced.â&#x20AC;? Lanark County Interval House is ready to collaborate with the county and the staff awaits the County councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan of action to work toward this approved motion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are looking forward to working alongside our elected politicians of this county to see the motion to fruition,â&#x20AC;? says Lee-Todd. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We remain committed to ensuring that the voices of women and children of Lanark County are heard and responded to in a respectful manner.â&#x20AC;? Delegations from Lanark County Interval House visited each individual municipal council prior to making the request to the Community Services Committee of Lanark County. Certain municipalities indicated a desire for LCIH to return to them if the request at the County table was not approved. Interval House plans to follow up with those municipalities. In response to a suggestion in a submitted staff report that funding for LCIH would result in hardship to other community agencies, the Executive Director asserts that Lanark County Interval House remains clear that its efforts and requests have never been made in a manner that suggests it is more valuable than any other supported service of the county including youth centres. The agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal is to have equal consideration and value in view of the importance of the contribution it makes for the health of the community as a whole.

EMC News - Despite an Oct. 10 motion of the Community Services Committee of Lanark County to refer it to the budget process, the Lanark County Interval House (LCIH) request for sustainable funding was unexpectedly reintroduced on Oct. 24 and defeated by one vote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After a long journey across the County to all municipalities and ending with a positive and supported presentation to the Community Services Committee of Lanark County, we thought the request was being referred to the budget process in the same manner as all things budget related,â&#x20AC;? said Erin Lee-Todd, Executive Director of Lanark County Interval House, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but at the following meeting of the County - just 14 days later - the issue of women and children is no longer worthy of formal budget discussions.â&#x20AC;? Lee-Todd expressed that Lanark County Interval House is disappointed and shocked by the sudden shift. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No communication to inform us, a very negative report submitted by and approved by county staff, and a result that indicates that the people with the power are not adequately concerned about marginalized members of our community. The costs to the community are real and meaningful to the constituents of our county and must be taken seriously.â&#x20AC;? By contrast, the County approved two additional motions related to the work to end violence against women. In a motion moved by Susan Freeman and seconded by Keith Kerr, the county has voted to fully support LCIH in ways that bear no financial cost. â&#x20AC;?and whereas the Council of Lanark County fully supports Lanark County Interval House in their role and services provided to the women, girls and children within the County; now therefore the Council

Crime Stoppers Christmas Social back and better than ever in 2012 mdowdall@perfprint.ca

EMC Events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A few yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hiatus for â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A Christmas Socialâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; has allowed Smiths Falls and District Crime Stoppers to bring this fundraiser back - bigger and better than ever in 2012. Offering the same popular features from past events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; social activity, entertainment, refreshments, snacks and more. The SFDCS board hopes a large crowd will come out to seize the mix and mingle opportunity. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event takes place Nov. 28 from 5 to 9 p.m. at the Smiths Falls Railway Museum of Eastern Ontario. Admission is just $5, but organizers are asking those who attend to bring along a non-perishable food item. Partnering with the local Build a Mountain of Food drive, Carl Evoy, local association board president explained, food donations will be given to the campaign. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone who attended our last Christmas Social raved they had a wonderful time. The board wanted

to bring back what was a fun evening,â&#x20AC;? Evoy noted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Taking a break from the social for a few years has allowed us to plan an even bigger and better event.â&#x20AC;? The event is really two pronged for the association, the first goal of course to raise funds; the second goal is to raise awareness. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The whole idea is to have a social, casual get together,â&#x20AC;? Evoy emphasized. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is just a fun evening. You can meet people and see whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on around town, and see the museum. All while raising funds for an important cause.â&#x20AC;? Crime Stoppers receives no funding period, funding comes from fundraisers and the sale of Nevada tickets. Monthly costs include $200-$300 for the 1-800 phone line coupled with the answering service expenses. The service offers anyone with information to a local crime a way to provide it to the police without being identified. It is operated with the support of a Smiths Falls Police co-ordinator who takes the calls and a team of dedicated

volunteers whom together find ways to support the ongoing operational costs of the system. The Crime Stoppers service operates entirely through donations. For tickets, contact any Smiths Falls and District Crime Stoppers board member or call Evoy at 613-283-2444, tickets can also be purchased at Impression Printing, Smiths Falls or at the Smiths Falls Chamber of Commerce office. Locally Crime Stoppers began in the summer of 1990 as a satellite to

the Kingston and District Crime Stoppers, however in September of 1992, things changed. That year, Smiths Falls formed its own program independent of Kingston, which continues to serve Smiths Falls and immediate area. Crime Stoppers is a nonprofit program, operated by a board of directors. The board features members of the local community who are responsible for fundraising, advertisement, payment of rewards and all other functions of the local association.

Crime Stoppers works closely with the police and supplies information from callers to the local department to assist in the solving of crimes. Callers providing information leading to arrests are eligible for rewards up to $2,000. Those wishing to provide a tip may call 1-800-222TIPS (8477) and know they will remain anonymous. No names are asked, no attempts are made to trace the call or identify the caller, and the Crime Stoppers phones do not have call dis-

play. Calls are answered 24 hours a day. When calling in the caller is given a code number with which they will identify themselves in any future calls. Those providing tips are given a date to call Crime Stoppers back. They will be updated on the status of the investigation, perhaps asked for more information, or if the tip has resulted in an arrest, or recovery of property or drugs, the caller will be guided through the procedure of collecting their reward.

November marks CFUW healthy body time highlight some key benefits of physical activity from a dance/fitness perspective, demonstrating safe, easy to use exercises that can be modified to suit the needs of all women. The theme of the most recent CFUW meeting, (Oct. 15) was “The Heart of Perth: Past and Future”. Susan Code McDougall, local historian, gave a lively talk on personages who settled in this area as a result of the War of 1812 – no war, no Perth, she explained. Completing her talk was a trueto-life local ghost story. Mayor John Fenik reprised an abbreviated version of the Commencement talk he gave this spring to Algonquin College students. Rounding out the October program was a presentation of the historical research done by Irene Spence about Alexander Fraser, who settled in the area right after the War of 1812 – in fact, Irene lives in his house, one of eight on CFUW’s Heritage Perth Christmas House Tour, Dec. 1 and 2.

Gananoque’s Pondapalooza cancelled for 2013 By LORRAINE PAYETTE

EMC News - Official word has been announced that Pondapalooza, the popular three-day weekend event held on the St. Lawrence River in Gananoque, has been cancelled for 2013. “It is at this time I (must) announce sadly that the 2013 Pondapalooza weekend will not proceed as planned,” said Lori Higgs, event coordinator. “I want to thank each and every one of you again for all your help the past two years in making this a great event for our community. “Although I respect and

value everyone’s time and thank those that did offer to help this year where they can, there is just not enough manpower to successfully build and maintain this event. We have advertised for new volunteers with no luck through newspapers, radio and social media. And I thank them for the assistance in helping us get more volunteers.” A relatively new event for the area, Pondapalooza had been slowly gaining momentum, but was proving to be too much for the limited number of volunteers and participants to maintain at this time. A festival of

outdoor sport, it involved curling and hockey played on the natural ice of the St. Lawrence River, as well as vendors, hay rides, great free entertainment and an opportunity to get to know many of Gananoque’s local businesses. Many have offered their condolences and appreciation, but no one as yet has been able to pick up the torch and take on the event. “The efforts of the past two years by so many to produce Pondapalooza was

a true show of community spirit,” said Jan Gravelle. “Lori’s initiative, individual commitment, and energy (all) given to Pondapalooza were exceptional. Many of the chores were accomplished with a minimum of help and always in the face of fickle and adverse weather conditions. (She) kept our spirits up and made sure we made it happen! “Perhaps someone will take up the challenge, reviving Pondapalooza to be

Let It Rot

a great ‘winter-on-the-river’ event in the future.” Others in the community agreed with these sentiments, including Sue Smith, Manager, Parks, Recreation, Marina for the Town of Gananoque and John Keilty of the Gananoque Inn and Spa, both of whom sent their condolences. Several reasons were suggested for the shut down of the event, ranging from time of year to poor weather to lack of manpower, but

Gananoque is only down, not out. “Perhaps something else will evolve this winter and take its place,” said Robb Bowman. “Possibly running this event every other year would be more beneficial to people, (give them) more time to plan and prepare. “Hopefully we can continue to see such great events come to our area in the winter seasons and help support local businesses.”

High compliance during Moose Hunt Enforcement Blitz compliance. Violations included: • possessing a firearm at night • exporting wildlife without first obtaining a permit • wasting flesh suitable for food • failing to show authorization to a conservation officer upon request • failing to stop for a conservation officer • hunting with a shotgun not permanently plugged • operating an all-terrain vehicle without insurance and without a properly dis-

played plate. The enforcement initiatives coincided with the controlled moose hunt in Wildlife Management Unit (WMU) 65. This WMU, which covers the counties of Stormont-Dundas-Glengarry and Prescott-Russell, as well as several former townships in the eastern part of the City of Ottawa, has a distinct population of moose. This population is not directly connected to other populations in the typical moose range to the north and west. The

population exists entirely within discrete “islands” of habitat, where there are very few natural predators. As such, it requires careful management to minimize habitat damage, moose tick infestations, vehicle/moose collisions, and crop damage. Aerial surveys indicated that the moose population was at 34 animals in 1980 and increased to 127 in 2010. To improve the management of moose and provide additional hunting opportunities, a bows-only

controlled hunting season for moose was established. The hunt consists of a three-day disabled hunters’ season followed by a oneweek open season. Participants in the hunt must be successful in the moose tag draw in WMU 65 or be the hunting partner of a successful applicant. In 2011, 70 moose tags were allocated and 12 moose were harvested by hunters and/ or their partners in WMU 65. Seventy tags were allocated again this year. For further information

on hunting regulations, please consult the 20122013 Hunting Regulations Summary, available at ServiceOntario/Government Information Centres, from licence issuers and at ontario.ca/hunting. To report a natural resources violation, call 1-877-TIPS-MNR (8477667) toll-free any time or contact your local ministry office during regular business hours. You can also call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

EMC News - The Ministry of Natural Resources laid five charges and issued three warnings during an enforcement blitz in Kemptville District. From Oct. 5 to 14, conservation officers checked 47 moose and waterfowl hunters and uncovered eight violations, leading to five charges and three warnings. Some matters are still under investigation and will likely result in additional charges. Of the hunters checked, most were found to be in

The Lowly Worm has more of an effect than we know alter forest soil structure and chemistry, reduce nutrient availability, and decrease the diversity of understory vegetation, soil fauna, and belowground fungal communities. That is, they reduce and destroy habitat for native species. There is also evidence that changes caused by earthworms lead to a cascade of other changes in the forest that affect populations of small mammals, birds and amphibians, exacerbate the impacts of herbivores such as white-tailed deer and facilitate invasions

of other exotic species such as slugs, European buckthorn, and garlic mustard. Thus earthworms pose a serious threat to the biodiversity and long term stability of our forests. With a warming climate, the potential for some earthworm species to expand their distribution or expand populations already established in forested ecosystems will increase likely resulting in further significant ecological changes and socioeconomic impacts. Because earthworms are spread mainly by human

activities, there are some simple things you can do to prevent their further spreadâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;take unused fishing bait home with you and freeze the container for at least a week before discarding the contents, freeze (as previously) compost before using it, wash ATV or other soil-holding vehicle tires before transporting the vehicle, join the Great Lakes Wormwatch citizen science effort (http://www. naturewatch.ca/english/ wormwatch).

significant changes in our environment. The underground burrowing systems that worms create increase the amount of water and air that reaches plant roots and other soil organisms. Also, earthworms mix the plant litter and organic matter into the soil, increasing the speed at which they decay and release nutrients. No wonder gardeners love them! The last glaciation eradicated native earthworms from Ontario. Our forests developed in the absence of earthworms until they arrived with soils (for ballast) and plants brought here by European settlers. Since then both adults and cocoons (egg cases) have continued to be spread through dumping of unused fish bait, transport of compost, mulch, and top soil, movement of landscape plants with soil around their roots, dispersal from tire treads, and road building that involves bringing in soil from elsewhere. At present, 17 non-native European and two North American (non-native to Ontario) earthworm species survive in the province. Beyond the garden, in native forest ecosystems, earthworms are very bad news. They significantly

UCDSB blog aims to inform public on status of contract negotiations EMC News – Monday morning, Nov. 5, the Upper Canada District School Board introduced a new blog to keep students, parents, board employees and the general public informed of the status of its contract negotiations with teachers and support staff. The first blog post from Board Chair Greg Pietersma explains the purpose of the site known as ‘Students First, Always!’ (studentsfirstalways.ca). “Our first use of this portal will be to address the turmoil created by the Ontario Minister of Education’s approach to this round of contract talks,” out-

lines Pietersma. “We will use this blog to provide the facts regarding what is happening with contract talks and what is happening in our schools. This is our way to keep everyone informed of the truth, to stay ahead of potential rumours and misunderstandings.” The blog also features the website links for the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation, the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario, the Canadian Union of Public Employees, the Ontario Ministry of Education and People for Education. “We chose to include those

links because we want everyone to see what various others are saying about the government’s legislation and other related issues. This is a transparent blog that offers a wide exchange of information and ideas,” said Pietersma. Visitors to the blog site can respond with their questions and opinions. All questions will be answered by the school board as quickly as possible. “This site will be used in the future for other key purposes to disseminate useful and accurate information as quickly as possible to our communities. For example, this would have been

a great communication tool for us to have used in 2009-10 during the H1N1 crisis,” explained Director of Education David K. Thomas. In the past the board used news releases, school newsletters and letters sent home with students to keep its communities informed of events. However, the way it can communicate and the way its communities expect the board to communicate have changed. Parents want information as close to real time as possible and it is incumbent upon the board to fulfill that expectation. This portal is designed to

achieve that. When events occur, anyone can visit this portal to get up-to-date, relevant information. Consider it as a clearing house for information that one might require. Other features on the site include: • a dashboard listing of all the board’s schools and a colour code to outline the status of co and extra-curricular activities. This will provide visitors with an instant picture of the levels of activities in the board’s 87 schools; • a link to Chair Pietersma’s blog and the Upper Canada District School Board’s

blog known as WHO IS IN CHARGE OF THE SCHOOL HOUSE?; • a link to Director Thomas’ blog; • a glossary of items related to collective bargaining; and • a flow chart of the collective bargaining process. There is the potential for labour action in the coming weeks and months. “We will do anything we can do to lessen the anxiety and frustration that accompanies events like labour disruptions,” said Pietersma. Submitted by the Upper Canada District School Board.

Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation reveals Inflammatory Bowel Disease costs Canadians $2.8 billion a year EMC News - To kick off November as Crohn’s and Colitis Awareness Month, the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada (CCFC) is launching The Impact of Inflammatory Bowel Disease in Canada 2012 Final Report and Recommendations. This report, commissioned by the CCFC, was developed to collect and communicate information on Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) relevant to Canada. It also raises awareness and understanding of IBD in Canada, ultimately leading to new research opportunities and improved quality of life of people with IBD. “We had hoped that our research efforts into finding the cures for Crohn’s and colitis would have paid off long ago, giving our patients the freedom to move ahead with their lives and careers,” said Dr. Kevin Glasgow, Chief Executive Officer, CCFC. “We’re getting closer to

the cures – and definitely seeing the benefits of better treatments – but we’re not there yet. Until that day comes, we have a collective obligation to improve quality of life by reducing the impact of living with IBD, which is why the CCFC commissioned the Impact of IBD Report.” The Impact of IBD in Canada - key findings: • There are approximately 233,000 Canadians living with IBD – 129,000 with Crohn’s disease and 104,000 with ulcerative colitis. • This is up from 201,000 Canadians with IBD as reported in CCFC’s 2008 Burden of IBD in Canada Report. • An estimated 5,900 Canadian children have IBD. • One in every 150 Canadians has IBD (0.7 per cent of the population). • IBD is more than twice as common as multiple sclerosis or Parkinson’s disease; about as common as Type I

diabetes or epilepsy. • More than 10,200 new cases of IBD are diagnosed every year (5,700 with Crohn’s disease, 4,500 with ulcerative colitis). • The incidence of IBD in Canada has been rising, particularly since 2001, and significantly so in children under the age of 10. • The economic costs of IBD are conservatively estimated as $2.8 billion per year, which is more than $11,900 per person every year. • Direct medical costs

(dominated by medications, hospitalizations and physician visits) totalled over $1.2 billion. • Indirect costs (dominated by long and short-term work losses and patient outof-pocket expenses) totalled over $1.6 billion. • Quality of life for people with IBD is low across all aspects of health, compared to the general population. One of the most troubling findings from the 2012 Impact of IBD Report is the prevalence of pediatric IBD – the numbers were higher

than expected – and have been increasing significantly in children aged 0-4 years and 5-9 years. Today, an estimated 5,900 Canadian children have IBD, experiencing symptoms of agonizing pain and countless bowel movements a day. While further research is required to answer the big question of “why?” researchers believe that this finding is related to undetermined environmental factors, or due to patterns of migration. The complete Impact of Inflammatory Bowel Dis-

ease Report can be downloaded from the CCFC website at www.ccfc.ca. November is Crohn’s and Colitis Awareness Month Adults and children living with IBD face a number of critical challenges. The disease can severely impact their quality of life, including a reduction in their ability to work or attend school, social stigma, management of bathroom issues, difficulty with physical intimacy and a restriction in career choices.

Caution needed before signing on the bottom line or suspending a driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s licence EMC Lifestyle - First I need to start off with an apology for not labeling the picture I sent in with the Oct. 4 piece on a restored British classic car. The shot of the curious geek with his head under the hood was actually me, not the vehicleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s owner Mike Giroux. For the record, Mike is much better and younger looking than me. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dear Brian: I took my 2006 Cadillac DTS into a local national chain garage recently as I had a free oil change coupon. I also mentioned that there was a noise coming from the engine, which actually sounded as if I had winter tires on (that sort of noise), but I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t (have winter tires on!). I saw the mechanic take it for a spin. When the oil change had been completed, and I went to pay my bill, there was a charge of $99 for a General Diagnostic. I did not request this, so should I have to pay for it? They then went on to tell me that I needed new Shocks & Struts...cost $915. Replace Wheel Bearing front, one side...$399. I declined to have them do this work, and went to my usual mechanic, who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think anything they were going to do would affect the noise I was hearing. He will tell me what he thinks is the problem tomorrow! Why should I have to pay for the Diagnostic charge when I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t asked for it? Did they do it to find out what the problem was? What do they have mechanics for? Arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t they the ones to tell me?!â&#x20AC;? Very frustrated! John When taking your vehicle into a repair shop you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t visited before, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good to first ask a few questions to avoid this type of invoice surprise. First, check what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re signing when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re presented with a work order. If you ask for a noise to be checked out, or for anything else for that matter, make sure your request is accurately indicated on the work order. Signing a work order without reading or understanding it can be a lot like signing a blank cheque. The Ontario Ministry of Consumer Services website provides some great advice for these situations: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The repair shop may charge for an estimate â&#x20AC;&#x201D; if you are told in advance that

a fee will apply and what the amount will be. The fee can include the cost of diagnostic time plus the cost of reassembling the vehicle. It can also include the cost of parts damaged and replaced while carrying out the estimate. However, the repair shop canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t charge for an estimate if you go ahead with the work, unless you make them wait for authorization and they must reassemble your vehicle to make room for other work. If you authorize the work or repairs by phone, the shop is required to record the details of the authorization in writing. If a repair shop asks you to sign a blank work order, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it. If you sign, the repairer may argue youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re liable for whatever work it chooses to carry out, and it will be difficult to prove you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t authorize it.â&#x20AC;? I would suggest our Caddy owner make arrangements and sit down and discuss this situation with the service manager at the shop he visited, and if necessary, the store owner. If he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t informed of the estimating and diagnostic charges up front, he may have a good case to request a refund. A good friend at the Ministry of Transportation is always happy to fill my email inbox with interesting studies, press releases, and reports. One that came recently provided some surprising information. A recent article in the New England Journal of Medicine (Sept 27, 2012) detailed a statistical analysis of Ontario motor vehicle collisions and related injuries between April of 2006 and the end of 2009. They concentrated on drivers who had received a warning from their doctor detailing a medical condition that may have affected their driving ability. The study revealed a 45 per cent decrease in the rate of collisions that required a visit to a hospital emergency department per 1,000 drivers. One of the conclusions of this study was that society in general and the province saved $7M annually in healthcare costs, property damage, and lost work-time, as well as premature morbidity and mortality as a result of these medical warnings. What was a surprise to me was that since 2006 physicians in Ontario have been paid $36 for every warning

Car Counselor BRIAN TURNER

they issued to a patient regarding a potential â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;unfit-todriveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; medical condition that entailed a follow-up by letter to the Ministry of Transportation. Approximately 1030 per cent of the 100,000 warnings that were issued resulted in temporary or permanent license suspensions. The study also noted a 25 per cent increase in emergency visits among warned and suspended drivers (pri-

marily for depression) and a 23 per cent drop in visits to their physicians, presumably due to strained patient/doctor relationships because of the warnings. Even though the report didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spell it out, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no secret that a good portion of these warnings/ suspensions involved senior drivers. Driving people that need healthcare the most away from their doctors is never a great idea. And tar-

anyone regardless of their age.

geting those that are statistically among the safest drivers on the roads isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t an appropriate use of regulations. Maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to take doctors out of the role of enforcing MOT regulations. If a doctor notices a condition that may affect driving ability, a better solution might be to have him or her order a test to be performed at an MOT facility, before suspending a license, to gauge the ability of the driver in question. Surely with our level of knowledge of the human mind and body and with the technology at hand today, we could come up with a fair and accurate method of determining the driving fitness of just about

Miniature collection honours Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hats

tails such as roses which she makes and glues on the hats. It takes her about four hours to make one of these miniature hats. She currently has made 35 hats, all unique in accordance with the Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s design, although she did not have them all on display last Saturday because of the size of the exhibit case. She also included in the display some miniature hat boxes, which she has added to her collection. In addition, she included one hat worn by the Queen Mother and another hat worn by Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall. Kennedy says that she makes these miniature replicas of the Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s many hats because â&#x20AC;&#x153;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fun thing.â&#x20AC;? In addition, she is a hat lover herself, one of which she was wearing as she attended â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Teaâ&#x20AC;? event that day. She currently has 61 hats, all custom-made. She recently has sent a picture of her collection of miniature replicas of the Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hats to the Queen but so far she has not heard back.

By JOHN CURRY john.curry@metroland.com

EMC News - Queen Elizabeth is renowned for her hats. And so it only makes sense that any celebration of the Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Diamond Jubilee such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Teaâ&#x20AC;? event hosted by the Goulbourn Township Historical Society and the Goulbourn Museum at the Stittsville branch of the Ottawa Public Library recently should include something about the Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hats. And what a display it was, not in size as it was all contained in a small glass-front exhibit case, but in scope with numerous scale-model replicas of the Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hats. These one-twelfth scale replicas, all hand made by Pat Kennedy of Almonte, a selfdeclared hat lover herself, have been made according to designs provided by Buckingham Palace itself. Kennedy wrote to the Queen, seeking information about the hats that she has worn over the years, all of which are specially designed for her. Buckingham Palace responded by sending the designs to Kennedy with the proviso that any hats made from the designs could not be sold. Kennedy then set about to make the miniature replicas of the hats, right down to the de-

People First continue to fight for the Protecting Vulnerable People Against Picketing Act tgesner@perfprint.ca

EMC News – Imagine a world where you are powerless. “When a strike occurs and pickets are set up in front of the homes of our community’s most vulnerable people, there is absolutely nothing they can do,” People First of Ontario (PFO) president Kory Earle said. “They have lost their freedom.” Over and above a complete lack of privacy, he explained the residents hear screaming, have their pictures taken by strikers, and are forced to wait before they can go anywhere – at times up to 20 minutes. Furthermore, neighbours quickly learn the residents’ homes are supported by agencies or organizations. “Our most vulnerable are singled out,” Earle said. “No person’s personal home should be picketed,” DufferinCaledon Member of Provincial Parliament (MPP) Sylvia Jones said in a statement read out loud during a press conference at the Carleton Place office of People First of Lanark County (PFoLC) on Monday, Oct. 29. Last December, during the 40th Parliament of Ontario, the MPP re-introduced the Protecting Vulnerable People Against Picketing Act (Bill 23), which would prevent picketing of supported group living residences. As Premier Dalton McGuinty prorogued the legislature on Oct. 15, “I intend to do so again in the 41st,” she said. “No employment contract is more important than an individual’s dignity.” “In my view, when McGuinty shut down Queen’s Park, it

showed disrespect to the province’s most vulnerable people,” Earle said. “People First of Ontario is not saying that it is wrong for a person to resign; however, there are issues that need to be dealt with – like the Protecting Vulnerable People Against Picketing Act.” The bill is not about weakening employees’ rights or strengthening employers’ bargaining ability. “I am not of the side of service providers or unions,” the MPP said. “I am on the side of the people caught in the middle.” “We want to ensure their voices are heard,” Earle stated. United we stand Joining Earle on Oct. 29 was Carleton Place Mayor Wendy LeBlanc. “Wendy stands united with the individuals affected by what goes on when picketing happens in front of their homes,” he said. Crossing a picket line can be difficult – even scary. No one wants to rock the boat. “I can’t imagine driving up to my house at the end of a long day and seeing picketers,” the mayor said. “What kind of quiet night would you have at home?” “I would not tolerate it,” she added. LeBlanc highly praised Earle and People First for working extremely hard to make people with disabilities a part of the community – “a very important part.” Jones concurred. “Organizations like People First and Community Living have worked tirelessly to incorporate support group resi-

dences into communities,” she said. “When these residences are picketed, all of this excellent work is undermined. This is not right.” In 2009, a 10-week long strike between members of CUPE Local 1521.02 and Community Living AssociationLanark County was a real eye opener to the advocacy work that People First must concentrate on.

“It is very important that employers and unions step up and put all differences aside and say ‘we ensure that picketing in from of the most vulnerable people’s homes does not happen again’,” Earle said. His organization is hopeful Bill 23 will be passed into law when it is eventually brought forward for a third time. “At no time should people with disabilities be used as

pawns,” Earle stated. “They are human beings and should be treated with respect.” During the next parliament, People First is calling on all MPPs to stand together and help get the Protecting Vulnerable People Against Picketing Act passed – quickly. “Together we can make sure that people living with supports in Ontario’s communities have their dignity and safety protect-

ed,” Jones said. The vision of People First is of a movement of people who want all citizens to live equally in the community. On Nov. 1, Manon Lepine took over for Earle as president of PFoLC, as he assumes the role of executive director. For further information about PFoLC, call 613-2577111 or 613-492-7111, or email koryearle@hotmail.com.

The story is one that has its roots back in the very, very early days. Many long years ago aboriginal people put chips of hazelwood on their babiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; necks to soothe teething pains. The practice seemed to have been nearly lost until a Quebec couple with a new baby who was teething, was given a necklace made with beads from the hazelwood tree. Genevieve Lagace and Patrick Lafond were delighted when they found that the age-old practice seemed to work wonders, so they began to make necklaces for infants, children and adults. They now have over 70 employees and this is a 100% natural, 100% handmade and 100% Canadian product. They now sell in over 1300 outlets across Canada, the United States and Europe.

EMC News - For weeks Grade 10 History student John Nguyen didn't know how he was going to bring the story of his Second World War soldier to life, until family members generously lent him a suitcase of precious letters. "It was like a gold mine," Nguyen said, adding how the 250 hand written notes helped him turn a corner in his research. "I had nothing really." Bobby Drew enlisted in the army when he was 18 and died at the age of 23 when an enemy tank fired on his tank blowing it up. "Only one of them (soldiers) survived," Nguyen reported. The letters, dropped off by Drew's brothers early last week, have allowed the local student to get an intensely personal look at the young soldier who, until now, was

simply a name etched on a cenotaph. Many of the letters speak of his wanting to come home and asking his family not to worry. "You know, Mom I never really appreciated home as much as I should have," Drew wrote while serving overseas. His connection to his family is vividly reflected in the mentions of care packages and the frequency of communication Drew had with his family. "Mom, I don't want you to worry about me because this is no different than Canada." The letter later goes on to say. “ . . . And when we do go into action I'm quite ready to fight and can take care of myself so please don't worry about me. It will make me feel better if you don’t.” On Aug. 22, 1944 the Drew See SOLDIERS page SF2

EMC News – The death of an employee of George Tackaberry & Sons Construction Ltd. on Monday, Oct. 29, has prompted an investigation by the Ministry of Labour. Joe Drummond, 30, was killed on the job while working at Woods Quarry, located at 5436 Woods Drive in the Township of ElizabethtownKitley. According to William Lin, media relations officer at the MOL, Drummond was in the bucket of a front end loader to gain access to a stacker because one of the components had failed. “A component of the stacker crushed the worker,” Lin said. “He was pronounced dead at the scene.” Fire, police and Ministry of Labour investigators were immediately dispatched, Lin said. Drummond’s death resulted in the ministry issuing five orders – a stop-work order, which has since been lifted – was the first thing the MOL did on site. “The ministry is still investigating and three of the five orders have yet to be complied with,” Lin noted. Those five orders issued under the Occupational Health and Safety Act to George Tackaberry & Sons Construction Ltd. include: • Ensure all MOL orders are complied; • Ensure that a safe means is used to raise or lower a worker, has been examined and tested by a competent person, that a safe work procedure has been established prior to use and that the hoist operator and worker being raised can

exchange movement signals as required; • that equipment which is being lowered is blocked as required by regulation to prevent a hazard to a worker; • shall establish a safe work procedure in writing for the dismantling/erection of the Stacker Model MCB1085. The procedure shall include but not be limited to the lowering of the belt restraint bracket before folding the upper section of the stacker in preparation for transportation purposes (this one has been complied to); • Stop Work Order - Shall ensure that all Stacker Models MCB1084 in their possession or being used by the Employer are not prepared for transportation or transported until the above mentioned order has been complied with and reviewed by the Ministry of Labour (this has been lifted). Lin added that the investigation is ongoing. “We need to determine if any health and safety procedures were violated,” he said. Calls to the company were not returned. Drummond was married to Ceili Joynt and was the father of two sons, Riley and Colton. His parents are Ken and Judy Drummond. He was the brother of Dan (Marie), Andrew (Erin) and Jason (Jodi) and uncle to Teah, Nathan, Madeline, Callum, Morgan, Cassidy and Luke. A trust fund has been set up for the boys at the Royal Bank in Smiths Falls. Donations can be sent to the Lannin Funeral Home in Smiths Falls, 32 Main St. K7A 1A2, in care of the Riley and Colton Savings Account.

Chartwell food bank drive By STACEY ROY sroy@perfprint.ca

family’s fears were realized when Bobby Drew was killed in his tank. The family received a formal letter from two levels of government assuring the family that Bobby’s supreme sacrifice won’t be forgotten. The devoted son Bobby Drew will now be remembered by a new generation of Smiths Falls, thanks to the Lest We Forget project. The small suitcase and 250 letters will be part of the evolving museum exhibit at Heritage House Museum until January 2013. A retired teacher has volunteered to type all the letters and have them available in digital format. For Nguyen, the opportunity to read the pages in the suitcase has opened his eyes to the loss that many experienced during the war years and has forever changed the way he experiences Remembrance Day. “I actually know a name now,” he said. Fellow history student, Slade Stoodley will be given a unique

EMC News - The 31st annual art show at the Heritage House Museum in Smiths Falls is under way. The show runs from Nov. 3 to Dec. 19.

Stacey Philips, community relations staff member at Willowdale. From Nov. 1 to Dec. 16 both retirement homes will have an area in their front lobby to collect donated non-perishable goods and the community is invited to get involved and help their chosen retirement home earn bragging rights for the year. “It’s all about getting ev-

erybody involved,” said Amy Steele, Willowdale general manager. “It’s important to reach out into the community and help those that are less fortunate,” added Tanya Marker-Dowe, Van Horne general manager. “It’s our way to give back.” Donated items from the community can be dropped off to the retirement homes all week long.

honour at this year’s Nov. 11 ceremony in Smiths Falls. This Sunday the family of the late John Raymond Warren has asked Stoodley to lay a wreath at the cenotaph in honour of the fallen hero. A first for the local student, Stoodley is honoured to represent his soldier’s family in this public way. “It’s going to be a good experience,” he said. While many students are learning about their chosen soldier through their research, Wes Warren is hoping to uncover the military facts about his great, great uncle Gerald Warren. “My dad had told me that he took part in the war,” Warren said. “I never really knew how he died until I joined this class.” Gerald Warren was a runner in France responsible for delivering messages for the war effort. Just a couple months before the war ended Warren, then 24, was killed in a car accident when he was hit by an allied vehicle when turning a corner. “He lived on the house at the corner where he was killed,”

Warren learned. The local student would greatly love to find a picture of his late ancestor, but has been having difficulty due to a historic family house fire and the nature of his great, great uncle’s role in the Second World War. “It’s hard to find a photo because he was part of the general list of the army. There’s little known of them,” Warren said. Family members will be among the most appreciative audience Warren will have for his finished essay though by no means the only one. The museum exhibit is starting to take shape at Heritage House Museum. Staff has copied all the information students have gathered as of late last week and are beginning to create display pieces. “It becomes this growing exhibit as you find more information,” said Blake Seward, history teacher. The exhibit will be on display until January 2013. Stop by and get the story behind these fallen heroes.

LIPC, chamber hosts employers’ workshop

TOWNCOUNCIL COUNCIL TOWN BRIEF ININBRIEF EMC News - The following information came from the special committee-of-the- whole session and regular council held Monday, Nov. 5, 2012.

Budget 2013

Interim CAO Steve Fournier asked councillors to attend next week’s committee meeting prepared to tell staff their goal for the upcoming budget process. Staff has already begun the process for budget presentation with an eye to having it finalized before the Christmas break this year. Coun. Ken Graham noted the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority is looking for municipal feedback on a potential 3.5 per cent levy increase next year, while Lanark County looks like it may slightly reduce the amount the town pays each year for a variety of services. More information on the county budget will be coming back to committee next Monday.

Police information night

As part of its communications plan, the Smiths Falls Police Service will be holding a public information night Tuesday, Nov. 13 at 7 p.m. at the Legion regarding its business plan document. The public meeting is held annual to gain resident feedback on policing performance and future needs.

Dog Park donation

EMC Events - The Smiths Falls Local Immigration Partnership (LIP) Project is partnering with the Smiths Falls & District Chamber of Commerce in organizing a free workshop for employers on Wednesday, Nov. 21. Entitled “Leveraging the Skills of Internationally Educated Professionals -- Why you should do it and how you can do it well”, the workshop will be facilitated by Hire Immigrants Ottawa (HIO). “Employers will learn the business case for integrating immigrants into their organizations/businesses, and strategies and resources on how to more effectively leverage the full potential of a diverse workforce,” explains Kelly McGahey, Senior Manager, Stakeholder Relations, HIO. With an aging population and low birth rate, Canada

Sidewalk obstructions

Don Looby, superintendent of works and utilities, reminded residents with rock gardens, shrubs or other items next to the sidewalk to please move them one metre away from the edge of the sidewalk during the winter months. This is in response to a number of new incidents this year and complaints received by the department. Looby noted the request is made so that crews can clear the sidewalks of snow and make it safe for pedestrians without damaging equipment or causing harm to anyone. In regards to damage to one hedge in town Looby had this to say: “We are sorry for the damage and realize the hedge has been there for some time.” Hedges are asked to be trimmed back away from the sidewalk so clearing and salting can be done.

EMC Events - On Thursday, Nov. 15 the banquet hall at the Comfort Inn will be buzzing with talk about what is possible in downtown Smiths Falls. The public is welcome to attend the 6 p.m. meeting and provide their feedback on the first draft plan for the Downtown Revitalization and Waterfront Integration and Master Plan.

Rick St. Dennis, director of community services, brought forward an in-camera item into open committee this week to ask that Richardo Roofing Ltd. be awarded the pointing contract for the Station Theatre and Municipal Complex at a cost of $398,985.20. The work will point the foundation at both facilities and the walls at the municipal building. Councillor Chris Cummings said this project is a long time coming having been cut from budget every year of his six years on council. “I’m really happy to say I want to support it going forward this year,” Cummings said.

Digital copies of the document are available on the town’s website (www.smithsfalls.ca) through the public notices menu or call Niki McKernan in the Planning Department at 613-283-4124 x. 1116 or nmckernan@smithsfalls.ca for a hard copy. A number of elements are discussed in the document, including the future establishment of a roundabout at the intersection of Beckwith and

EMC Events - My name is Peter Lees and I was born in Perth, Scotland on the 12th of April, 1878. My mother, my brother John and I came to Canada when I was young boy. I began a great adventure when I enlisted in the Canadian Army on Sept. 26th, 1914 becoming a private in the 10th Battalion, 103rd Regiment Calgary Highlanders. We all boarded ships headed for Europe to see action in what they would call The Great War. I saw service at Ypres, Festubert & Givenchy, Mount Sorrel, and the Battle of the Somme but the raw brutality of war and loss of my comrades had taken its toll. Peter came home to Canada as a result of “stress of active service conditions” or “shell shock” suffering from symptoms we recognize today as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Peter Lees spent the final days of his military career in hospital. He had spent 27 months of active service in France, participating in some of the largest battles of WWI. Peter was 41 years old when he died on Jan. 30th, 1919. Remembrance Day is Sunday, Nov. 11th and it is the time of year that we all remember the members of our armed forces who have died in the line of duty.

EMC News - The Royal Canadian Legion Rideau Lakes Branch 231 is enjoying a new look to its Legion building thanks to the Ontario Trillium Foundation and an army of volunteers. On Saturday afternoon, Nov. 8 the Portland Legion held a special ceremony when its members thanked all those who helped them get their building to where it is today and to show off their renovations. The cost of the upgrades was offset by a Trillium grant of $82,800. New accessible washrooms were built, the main floor of the Legion hall was repaired, a new heating and air conditioning system was installed and a new extended kitchen area was created. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have made it more accessible and safe for the community,â&#x20AC;? said Legion president Betty French. In a press release French stated, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We saw the opportunity for a Trillium grant as an investment in our small community.â&#x20AC;? The renovations would make the Legion building an accessible setting for young and old, family functions, group functions or club gatherings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We believe the work just completed will allow our facility to be more functional for use within our greater community. We are thankful for Ontario Trillium Foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment to helping small groups like ours to be able to invest in our community,â&#x20AC;? said French. MPP Steve Clark was at the Legion hall for the presentation. He joked about missing the spring in the floor that he was used to with the old floor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The $82,800 that the branch received is to make sure that this branch is as vi-

Trillium Foundation for the lack of red tape in getting the application completed and approved. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We set some 24-month objectives for the use of the Legion. The Trillium grant was excellent, the work was excellent, this was only the first step in this journey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe we set an objective of increasing the use of this facility by 10 per cent over the next 24 months. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have done the first two steps of the journey and now we have to work on the next one. We still have our challenges ahead,â&#x20AC;? Caldwell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The more the facility is used the better we like it.â&#x20AC;?

Obituary

Honour guard pays tribute to Rick Warren’s passion for town By STACEY ROY sroy@perfprint.ca

EMC News - An ambulance draped in black with Smiths Falls paramedics past and present lining Main Street in Smiths Falls was a fitting scene to honour a man who worked to save the lives of many while volunteering in many ways to heal their souls. Rick Warren lost his battle to esophageal cancer at home on Oct. 19, 2012, but his life and legacy to the community was celebrated by his former colleagues, friends and family on Oct. 24 at St. John’s Anglican Church. “There’s a hole in the community,” said Rev. Jim Roberts of St. John’s Anglican Church. Warren was very much at home at his local church where he volunteered many hours as the People’s Warden and organizing a free meal for the community these last nine years.

The funeral procession for Rick Warren (inset) from St. John’s Anglican Church was lined with Smiths Falls Ambulance Service colleagues who attended Oct. 24 to pay their final respects to a former co-worker and friend. An ambulance draped in black leads the hearse to the cemetery while those who attended the service look on. “He had a prophetic voice in that he was always encouraging the church and the town to do more in terms of reaching out,” Rev. Roberts said.

Dave Pringle worked with Skills and Initiatives when the funding was cut and their soup kitchen was closed. Pringle said Warren heard of this gap

Committee set for Fire Master Plan work this week that the town’s $1.3 million fire truck is to be delivered to the town by this December rather than its original date of October this year. Due to its increased height, any renovations must be done before then as fire trucks (full of water) can’t be outdoors in the cold nights for fear of vehicle damage. Further details on the Fire Master Plan will be forth coming as the process continues. The last meeting was held Oct. 31. In the near future council members will participate in an education session to inform them of the plan and how it will come together.

EMC News - Council formally supported the creation of a Fire Master Plan Committee whose work will be to provide a thorough review of the fire services in Smiths Falls. The item came before a special committee-of-the-whole session this Monday (Nov. 5) followed by its formal approval at regular council later that evening. Mayor Dennis Staples listed the members of the new committee as: Coun. Ken Graham, himself, a representative of Dillon Consulting who has been hired to draft the plan, interim CEO Steve Fournier, Sandra Watters (admin. assistant) and fire chief Joel Gorman. “I think this is timely,” remarked Coun. Jay Brennan. The last time the town looked at its Fire Master Plan was 1988. The mayor explained the plan will look at procedures, equipment and structural issues related to the fire department. “It’s really a thorough review and it’s something that’s

long overdue,” the mayor said. The issue is timely in terms of current events as well. As of late, Gorman has been speaking with council members regarding his desire to see an addition on the existing fire hall. The proposal has been in the town’s long-term plans and has recently come to the floor when the existing two-bay area was deemed unsafe to hold the weight of fire trucks. To date, council has asked the emergency department to make do with facility repairs to the floor and the entrance due to budget restraints. Coun. Ken Graham confirmed

Warren retired from the ambulance service last summer. Rick Warren will be greatly missed by his wife, Trish and children Kyle, Melanie, Kelly and his step-daughter Tracie, as well as his many grandchildren and friends.

place. “He was well respected in the industry,” McIsaac said. This was well represented last month during Warren’s funeral where paramedics from across Lanark County and as far away as Leeds & Grenville, Renfrew, Ottawa and Frontenac came out to pay their final respects to a man who wore the EMS uniform with pride. Throughout his three-decades-long career Warren attended roughly 12,000 calls for service. McCabe recalls one call in particular when Warren and a colleague successfully revived a retired ambulance officer who’d collapsed on a golf course from a cardiac incident. Warren and his partner were the first to save someone’s life using the first generation defibrillator. “That retired ambulance officer is still here today because of Rick and his partner’s actions that day,” McCabe wrote in an email interview.

in the community and worked alongside the Lions Club who also offers a regular community luncheon, to fill that need. “When he was committed to something it was 100 per cent,” Pringle said. This passion and commitment was something Warren exhibited in every position he held. Cathy Pickup took up the role as chair of the Smiths Falls Municipal Drug Strategy Committee when Warren stepped down for health rea-

sons earlier this year. She recalls his energy and the way he had in inspiring others around him to action. “He just made me want to do better,” Pickup said. James McIsaac, Chief of the Lanark County Ambulance Service, remembers his late colleague as someone who was always passionate about giving back. “In Smiths Falls he was just all about the community,” McIsaac said. Warren served as a paramedic in Smiths Falls for more than 30 years. First in the Smiths Falls Ambulance Service and then as Smiths Falls base manager when the town’s service was merged with the county in 2000. He took on a lot of the CPR training in the area, including training courses in the schools and individuals who would eventually become trainers themselves. “Rick was a great promoter of our profession as well,” wrote Dale McCabe, who worked with Warren for many years. In 1982 the local man along side fellow paramedic, John McElroy won the provincial Casualty Care Competition hosted by the Toronto Ambulance Service. The following year they came in second

Looking Back 100 YEARS AGO – NOVEMBER 7, 1912 An employee of the Frost & Wood shops, named Samuel Torkot met with a painful injury yesterday when his left hand got caught in the machine for bending iron in the blacksmith shop. Two fingers were badly crushed. First aid was given by Mr. Stillwell who is a member of St. John Ambulance Society and the injured man was then taken to the new hospital where Drs. Anderson and McCallum amputated the second finger of his left hand. It is not generally known that the mother of the man who on Tuesday was elected President of the United States at one time lived in Brockville. Her father was the Rev. Dr. Thomas Woodrow, a Scotch Presbyterian, who came to Canada to do missionary work and located at Brockville in 1836. Later he returned with his family to Ohio. Among the children was a daughter named Jessica who married Rev. Joseph Wilson and these are the parents of Woodrow Wilson who on Tuesday attained the highest office in the gift of the people of the United States. 50 YEARS AGO – NOVEMBER 8, 1962 Residents of Montague Township residing in the built up area known as Atironto have offered to install their own water and sewer lines if arrangements can be made with Smiths Falls to supply them with water and allow the use of the town’s sewage disposal plant. Town Council on Monday night registered considerable concern over the long-delayed Federal building for Smiths Falls. As a result, Town Clerk F.H. Gilroy has been instructed to write George Doucett, MP for Lanark to determine the government’s intentions. The efficiency of a breathalizer test, used to check the alcoholic percentage consumed by a human, was questioned by Police Magistrate D.C. Smith on Monday morning. He ruled that in the case of a person past middle age, the Breathalizer could not gauge for certain whether the suspect was impaired or not. 25 YEARS AGO – NOVEMBER 11, 1987 Keith Salter, who has been “scraping out a living” from a Queen Street garage for several years, feels he is being done an injustice. Neighbour Harold Hagan has asked Smiths Falls town council to move in and close down Mr. Salter’s garage furniture making operation. The request, made in June, has caused council some concern as to how the zoning bylaw is to be enforced. The town’s solicitor recently advised the town to have the police investigate the matter. Since the 1920s there have been over 200, 000 adoptions in the province of Ontario. The burning issue for many adopted children, said Lanark adoption worker Pat Cairns, is why was I relinquished. And for the parents it’s often did I do the right thing? Is my child healthy? New legislation passed by the ministry of community and social services in July 1987 makes it easier for parents and children alike to find the answers to these troubling questions. 10 YEARS AGO –NOVEMBER 13, 2002 Until Monday of this week, residents and businesspeople were in the dark as to how to cope with rapidly rising hydro costs. But relief may be just around the corner in the form of a provincial government rebate. Bringing an end to bullying involves not just the parents and the students, but also the community at large. That was the message Dr. Wendy Craig tried to get across in a presentation in Smiths Falls Oct. 16. Leave it to the Scots to show how to perform an under-the-table Swiss Salute. That social activity pretty much sums up the camaraderie shared among two dozen curlers from Renfrewshire, Scotland and the same number of their local hosts. The Scots kicked off an eight-day curling tour around Ottawa and the Valley last Saturday at the Smiths Falls Curling Club. Compiled by: STACEY ROY

Paying tribute to our local heroes EMC Editorial - This week’s day of rest provides the perfect opportunity for Canadian communities across the nation to pause and recall the many lives that were affected because they fought for our freedom. This Nov. 11 entire families will be able to come out and take part in the solemn ceremony thanks to its weekend date. Every Remembrance Day my heart is always a little heavy when I think of the young men and women who died so young and so far away from home. The high school’s Lest We Forget project (now on display at Heritage House Museum) is a fantastic opportunity to bring

For the Record STACEY ROY these stories to life and celebrate their sacrifices beyond this weekend’s annual day of respect. In addition to upholding the oath to never forget I can’t help but look at the veterans lowering the flag in solemn remembrance while the bugler plays the Last Post and wonder how we can honour the lives of those veterans who came back home

after the war but were clearly never the same again. These men and women grew to become the community leaders, service club volunteers and business owners the community has come to depend on, but have we as a town or country ever stopped to capture their stories? I feel like the program created by Blake Seward at the high school was an awakening for the region and now the nation to not let these stories go. These next few years may be the last we have to capture some of these veterans’ stories first hand. I’ve never known fear like

they’ve known, but I have been privileged, thanks to my job, to be able to sit down with veterans year after year and listen to their stories. Some veterans worry they don’t deserve the title because they didn’t serve in a trench. I wish I could look every one of them in the eye and thank them for doing the work they did so my generation didn’t end up in a trench. Your work protected our peace and we are better for it. I hope all veterans of every stripe enjoy their Remembrance Day this year.

Letters to the Editor

Setting the record straight on teen moms DEAR EDITOR: Firstly let me thank you for covering our presentation to Smiths Falls town council on the evening of Monday, Oct. 22. We very much appreciate you helping us to get the word out about our program (“Town may excuse teen mom home from land taxes,” Smiths Falls Record News, page one, Thursday, Oct. 25). I liked your very fair approach while presenting the facts of the meeting in your article. However, I do feel the need to point out an error. There is a section of the article that states: “Anderson’s home has seen about 27 girls since December of 2011, all of whom, save one, have been from Smiths Falls. As of July, 15 babies have been born to mothers at the house since January, with 22 more babies expected by year’s end. All but one of the girls has been on some form of social assistance.” These numbers were to indicate people from Smiths Falls

on the Leap Program with Ontario Works, not our program. We cannot serve that many people at one time. We have had seven mothers and their babies live in the program since opening in October of 2011. We have served 27 girls from the community in our parent training classes since December of 2011. Also, for further information, we are having our staff review See MOMS page SF9

EMC News – The owners of Smiths Falls Advanced Alarm Systems had no idea why they were being singled out by the Canadian Cancer Society of Lanark Leeds and Grenville last week. But it was in due time that Amanda Gifford, fundraising coordinator for the society, joined Jan Hopkins, president, at the Beckwith Street business last Thursday. “We want to show our appreciation to you and your team for all your support to the Relay For Life,” said Hopkins, as she presented a plaque to owners Irene and Wayne Moodie, and their daughter Angel, last week. Hopkins said they nominated the Moodie family for the Corporate Partner Award and it was well received by the Toronto board of directors. “We’re pleased to present this award to you today for all your help and support of the Relay for Life,” said Gifford. It was 1999 when the Moodies first started helping with Lombardy’s Relay for Life – this year to be changed to the Smiths Falls Relay for Life, as it moves to the high school, Gifford said. “This is really wonderful,” said Irene. “We weren’t expecting this at all. It’s truly an

honour to be nominated.” Wayne said it’s been a great run helping with the relay, and the company went from entering a team, to corporate donations over the years. “We really owe a debt of thanks to our customers as well who have donated money too. We had some really great years,” he said. “But in the early years, there seemed to be a lot more people involved.” New location Gifford concurred and that’s one of the reasons why the relay will move to Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute this year. The event will take place on June 7. “We want to revive it and get a little more life into it,” Gifford said. “We feel that if we move it to a more centralized location, we will get that participation.” One of the attractions for the Lombardy fairgrounds as a host site over the years is the large area for campers. The area at the high school will be smaller and more contained. “Maybe there will be a lot of tents popping up this year,” quipped Angel. Gifford says there are three major relay events in Lanark County, including Smiths Falls (formerly Lombardy), Mississippi Mills and Brockville. Last year, the Lombardy Re-

Station Theatre releases its inaugural 12-month schedule sroy@perfprint.ca

EMC Entertainment - Fans of live theatre are, for the first time, being given a glimpse into the local offerings for 2013 season with the unveiling of the first year-long production schedule for the Station Theatre. The Smiths Falls theatre decided to release its lineup from January to December rather than fall-to-fall in the hopes of giving future audience members as much advance notice as possible. “We’re hoping that people will schedule us into their busy plans,” said Lynda Daniluk, artistic producer. The lineup, which includes an array of genres, is not set in stone, but is the theatre’s best take on what 2013 will have to offer. Cactus Flower The first production is the comedy Cactus Flower by Abe Burrows. The story follows a philandering dentist whose

many affairs are kept under control by his claiming to be married with children. Follow the dentist and his nurse who poses as his wife as the pair attempt to keep the lie alive and see where true love develops. This Broadway hit along with its cast of 11 characters invites the community to join them in laughing away the winter chill. “After winter it’s nice to have something to cheer us up,” Daniluk said. Cactus Flower will open on Feb. 28 at 8 p.m. with evening productions on March 1, 2, 8, and 9 to follow. Also new this year are two matinee offerings for each production. This show’s 2 p.m. matinees will be held on March 3 and 10. The Heiress The theatre moves from comedy to drama in the spring with the retelling of the 1947 play The Heiress. This piece tells the story of Catherine Sloper, a suitor and a very direct father. This timeless New

York City love story takes the audience through Sloper’s challenge in being torn between her father and love interest who may be motivated by greed. Theatre-goers will see how the power of passion, loss and money leave an indelible mark on the lives of these characters. The Heiress opens April 18, 8 p.m. with evening performances on April 19, 20, 25, 26 and 27. Afternoon matinees (2 p.m.) will be held April 21 and 28. Pollyanna The warmth of summer brings the excitement and melody of Pollyanna the musical! This charming story of an orphan and the spell she casts on the entire town will take up the challenge of following the runaway success of Anne with an E, which had many sold out nights. “They (musicals) have done well over the last couple of

That being said, there’s no denying 2013 will be a very busy year at the Station Theatre. In addition to the regular productions offered by the theatre Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute (SFDCI) will be hosting its original musical May 30 and June 1. Once a month the theatre will also continue its monthly movie

nights. Daniluk encourages members of the community to log on to www.smithsfallstheatre.com and send an email with suggestions for future productions. Theatre executives are already turning their attention to the 2014 season to allow for co-ordination with fellow theatres and to get production rights. Snow White & Seven Dwarfs Wrapping up the 2013 season is the annual Pantomime show. Next year the classic tale of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs will be headlining Nov. 28 to Dec. 8. “That’s going to be a fun one,” Daniluk said.

summers I’ve done them for sure,” Daniluk added. “Some of them (cast) speak as they did in Anne.” Musicals require a large cast to fill out every musical number. Pollyanna has a core cast of 20 with additional chorus people to be cast for shows taking place Aug. 8 to 18. All shows are evening performances (8 p.m.) with the two matinee shows (2 p.m.) taking place Aug. 11 and 18. One act plays In October the theatre will be mixing it up by offering three one-act plays a night to appreciative audiences from Oct. 3 to 13. “It makes for an interesting evening,” Daniluk said. Not only will the evening provide a change of pace for theatre fans, but it will also give the Station Theatre an opportunity to invite emerging local directors a chance at the

APPRECIATION I respectfully acknowledge my family and friends for their forever love and support. To my nursing colleagues I appreciate your loyality and friendship over the past 44 years. My heartfelt thanks to those who organized my retirement party. To Timber Run and staff, thank you for the meal and excellent service. Thank you to Pat Hough, R.N. for reading Bea Smith’s most endearing letter. Thank you Sarah for the beautiful video and music, Judy, the bus ride was great. My memory book is an absolute treasure.

LEESON, Lyle Wellington - In loving memory of a dear husband, father, grandfather and greatgrandfather, who passed away November 14, 2011. God looked around His garden and found an empty place He then looked down upon this earth and saw your tired face He put His arms around you and lifted you to rest God’s garden must be beautiful He always takes the best. He knew that you were suffering He knew you were in pain He knew you would never get well on earth again. He saw the road was getting rough and the hills are hard to climb so He closed your weary eyelids and whispered “Peace be thine.” A golden heart stopped beating hard working hands at rest it broke our hearts to lose you but you didn’t go alone for part of us went with you the day God called you Home. Love you always Kay and family

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

SANSOME, David John – October 11, 1938-November 11, 2010. Remembrance is a golden chain Death tries to break, But all in vain. To have to love And then to part Is the greatest sorrow Of one’s heart. Sadly missed by Sheila, Alan and Meghan

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”.

WAUGH – In Memory of Jaimie Kevin Waugh ( May 24 1964 to November 6 2011) Dad wasn’t a hero known by the world. But a hero he was to his little boy and girl. We knew his voice before we could speak, and loved it when he would sing us to sleep. Dad taught us life’s lessons of right from wrong, And instilled in us values that we might be strong. So through the years like a hero he stood, Working to give all that he could. His presence was important and we loved to see him smile, For no one in the world could emulate his style. And so dear dad our best memory to recall, Is the gift of your presence, The Greatest Gift Of All. Dearly missed by your son Brandon Il D d!

“WE REMEMBER”

WAUGH – In Loving Memory of my Daddy, Jaimie Kevin Waugh, (May 24, 1964 to November 6, 2011) Daddy, some days I can hear your voice and I turn to your face; Yet in my turning it seems the sound has been erased. Who will I turn to for answers When life does not make any sense; Who will be there to hold me close When I am feeling very tense; Oh, Daddy if I could turn back time And once more hear your voice; I’d tell you that out of all the Daddy’s You would still be my only choice. Please always know I Love You And no one can take your place; The years may come and go, But your memory will not be erased, Today, Grandpa, as you are listening In your home up above, Would you go and find my Daddy And give him all my love. I will always be your little girl! Dearly missed by daughter Jody-Anne Forever and ever loved

Those we love don’t go away They walk beside us everyday Unseen, unheard, but always near Still loved, still missed and very dear In our memories forever Clarence, Chris, Bruce & grandchildren

To those who knew my parents Agnes and Al: It is my wish to create a lasting memory of my parents for our grandson Kolton and his sibling. They are the next branch on the family tree that my parents started when they came to Canada and I do not want their legacy to die. In doing so, I am putting together a compilation of my Mom’s favourite recipes along with my Dad’s ‘Memoirs’, and even some stories as a lasting memory. If you have a picture of one of “Mrs. Kolarik’s Cakes” or possibly a recipe or little story about either of them - it would mean the world to me! I can be reached at gnpwilliams@rogers.com. Thank you! Pauline

FIELDING - In loving memory of my grandmother, Elizabeth, who died November 10, 1968. Think of you everyday, The years have gone so fast Wish I could have just one more moment again with you. Your smell, hugs and kisses. You are always in my heart gran. Missing you forever! Deeply missed Love granddaughter Karen

THE EMC - 52 - Thursday, November 8, 2012

THOMAS - In a quiet country grave yard, not very far away, lies a loving husband and father, Leonard and our precious children (son and brother) Stan and (daughter and sister) Carolyn. We will love each of you forever and we miss you every day. Love Gladys (Mom) Terry and Barb Marlene and Cliff Yvonne Pam Sandra and Families

HALL, Audrey M. - November 11, 1992. In loving memory of a dear “Nan”. Remembering you is easy We do it everyday Missing you is the hardest part As it never goes away. To hear your voice To see you smile To sit with you and talk for awhile Would be our greatest wish Today, tomorrow our whole life through, We shall always love and remember you. Missing you, Kevin (Krista), Brent (Donna) Leanne (Chad), Tyler, Kaylee, Keisha, and Haden

WAUGH – In Memory of Jaimie Kevin Waugh ( May 24, 1964 to November 6, 2011) We watched you laugh! We watched you cry! We sat with you and watched you die! A year has passed since you closed your tired eyes. We never wanted to lose you or have to say goodbye, but we didn’t have a choice. Your parents saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be. They put their arms around you and whispered, “time to come home to me.” A golden heart stopped beating. Hard working hands at rest. It’s lonesome here without you, we miss you more and more each day. Life doesn’t seem the same on earth, Since you have gone away. When days are sad and lonely and everything seems to go wrong, We somehow hear you whisper, “Cheer up and carry on.” Each time we see your picture, You seem to smile and say, “Don’t cry, I’m in my parents arms now, Until we meet again someday.” You Will Always Be My Asphalt Cowboy! Forever loved and dearly missed Sue

HALKA, Paul In loving memory of Paul, a dear husband, father and grandfather, who passed away November 13, 1992. Sadly missed along life’s way, Quietly remembered ever day, No longer in our lives to share, But in our hearts he is always there. Always loved and remembered, Mary Nancy and Clarence and Family Carol Ann and Bradley and Family Ron and Heather and Family

HARVEY - In loving memory of a dear mother and grandmother, Mary, who passed away in silence, November 10, 1984. She was a friend to all and a mother to many, Who gave all she had, all of the time, In order to bring happiness to others. May God keep her in His loving arms, Until the remainder of us meet her there. Missed by all and never forgotten Linda, Morley, Debbie Peter, Kelly, Karen and grandsons

This action is a last resort and for the McGuinty government to put us in this position was both unnecessary and regrettable. We are still hopeful that we can find a resolution to the crisis that the government has created. However, at this time, the reality of achieving settlements seems remote and tensions and actions will likely escalate,â&#x20AC;? Coran emphasized. He concluded that, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has never been our intent to impact the studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; learning experience. The government has a choice to make: work collaboratively as we have in the past to problem-solve or continue to undermine the successes that have made Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s education system one of the best in the world.â&#x20AC;?

EMC News - Twenty-seven bargaining units of the Ontario Secondary School Teachersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Federation (OSSTF/FEESO) began legal strike sanctions on Wednesday, Nov. 7 after negotiations with their respective school boards failed to produce tentative agreements. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is disappointing that we have not been able to achieve deals with local school boards to this point,â&#x20AC;? noted OSSTF/ FEESO President Ken Coran in a press release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, the ability of both sides to negotiate a fair deal has been obstructed by the actions of the Minister of Education and the Liberal government through the passing of Bill 115 in September.â&#x20AC;? OSSTF/FEESO work sanctions will be implemented in eight school boards, including: -- Toronto District School Board (Teachers) -- Trillium Lakelands District School Board (Professional Student Services Personnel, Teachers, Occasional Teachers)

The Canadians, who sit second to the Bears in the CCHLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Robinson Division, were acknowledged as an Honorable Mention.

ment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We applied for the grant earlier this year, and were excited to find out that we received it in September,â&#x20AC;? said Caldwell Street Public School Vice-Principal Lea Doxey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We created this initiative to give people in our community the opportunity to try new fitness classes, improve their health and wellness, and visit our great schools.â&#x20AC;?

High school invites parents to 2012 lecture series on teen issues sroy@perfprint.ca

EMC Events - On Thursday, Nov. 15 the Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute’s Parent Council invites fellow parents to the school for an evening of information gathering on a number of critical teen issues. The evening series runs from 6-9 p.m. at the high school with keynote speaker Dr. Michael O’Connor of the Kingston Concussion Clinic leading things at 6 p.m. “There’s new information that is well appreciated that suggests younger athletes take longer to recover (from concussions),” said Dr. O’Connor. “This is not something that has always been well known.” A preliminary study from the Cincinnati Child’s Hospital studied 12 children with sports-related concussions as compared to 12 non-concussion carrying children and found that it can take longer for a younger victim of concussion to recover. Stop by

April Shepherd and find out what parents can do to minimize their child’s risk of further health concerns after concussion. The next four presenters are split between two timeslots with parent participants asked to pick their top two to take part in. 7 p.m. Const. Cameron Mack of the Smiths Falls Police Service will be speaking to interested parents about the dangers of sexting, texting and internet luring, while Bob Beckwith of Open Doors will cover the

topic of communicating with one’s teen. “Hopefully they can get a better focus as to who their youths’ are,” Beckwith said. As a professional counselor for the last 30 years Beckwith values the ability to communicate as one of the key weapons in a parent’s arsenal in successfully dealing with any issue surrounding their teen. Beckwith’s presentation will touch on how to keep the flow of communication going, how to manage crisis events and why not to downplay a crisis identified by their teen. “What a teen’s crisis is and how we evaluate what a crisis is can be totally different,” Beckwith said. Open Doors specializes in working with youth and children from Lanark County and Smiths Falls with mental health needs. 8 p.m. At 8 p.m. Josee Besfette, Ministry of Transportation Ontario representative will

speak to parents about safe teen driving, while April Shepherd, personal trainer and nutrition consultant at Tay River Reflections in Perth will touch on the topics of health, fitness and nutrition for teenagers. “It will be very practical, hands-on information,” Shepherd said of her talk. She plans to speak to parents about how to identify a good source of protein, carbs, etc.; what is a good portion size and how often do teenagers need to eat to sustain themselves. She also expects to talk about great snack items to keep in the car in case one is caught hungry. When asked what she keeps in her vehicle Shepherd replied nuts, seeds and fruit. “I always have them no matter where I go,” she said. She encourages as many parents as possible to take advantage of the free information night next Thursday, Nov. 15. Light refreshments will be served to those taking part.

Politicians and community members gathered Nov. 2 to formally celebrate the receipt of a Trillium grant in support of the development of the new Sugarbush Island Walking Trail. From left to right: Elaine and Vince Watters, Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark, Doug Lewis (RWLT president), Natalie Wood (Trillium) and Dave Walker (RWLT operating officer).

Watters said. The Watters canvassed the community early on in the process to gather local support and funds for the trail and were pleased to see the trail opened this fall. “Not only does it protect wetlands but it provides an opportunity for people to get out and enjoy nature,” Vince Watters said. The trail is a relaxing 2.8 km walk through fields with very minimal inclines for those with mobility issues. The Sugarbush Islands Walking Trail is the perfect recreational companion to the existing Rock Dunder Trail, which is also maintained by the RWLT and is a fairly challenging climb for users. The RWLT operates and maintains 19 properties along the Rideau waterway area.

The island is connected to the main land via a causeway and at its tip looks out at the expansive Murphy’s Bay Wetland on one side and Lake Opinicon on the other. “There was a lot of community support,” said Dave Walker, RWLT operating officer. The sale was finalized in September 2010, which then began a six-month design process. Last year the community raised a significant amount of funds that was combined with the grant to make the trail a reality. Local trail neighbours, Elaine and Vince Watters attended the formal event last Friday to celebrate the preservation of the natural lands for everyone. “I’ve ridden my horses through here for years,” Elaine

EMC News - Members of the Rideau Waterway Land Trust (RWLT) formally thanked the Ontario Trillium Foundation for a $40,900 grant, which helped to bring about the opening of the new Sugarbush Island Walking Trail on Davis Lock Road. Dignitaries and community stakeholders gathered in the rain Nov. 2 to celebrate the completion of the trail system and the health benefits the 2.8 km trail will bring to the region. “This $40,900 grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation to fund the Sugarbush Island Walking Trail is exciting news. Our amazing outdoors and spectacular natural beauty are part of why it’s great to live here in Leeds-Grenville. I’m thrilled the Rideau Waterway Land Trust Foundation is creating this accessible walking trail to make it easier for more families to get out and enjoy the environment,” said LeedsGrenville MPP Steve Clark. Natalie Wood, Ontario Trillium Foundation representative was equally pleased to present the plaque last Friday as her family lives near by and has already enjoyed the natural beauty the trail has to offer. “You should all feel proud of what we have been able to achieve as we at the Ontario Trillium Foundation certainly are,” Wood said. “We all benefit from it.” The physical work of installing the gravel trail on the island was just recently finished up thanks to labour support from Employment Ontario and the Trillium funds. The project began when local residents approached the RWLT in 2009 regarding for sale signs they noticed on the island and asked if there was

Show your spirit SFDCI! By MEGAN CROWDER

EMC News - Last week at SFDCI was spirit week where kids got to show their school spirit by dressing up as the theme for each day. Monday was PJ Day and there were some interesting pajamas worn. Students wore full suit pajamas as cows and other animals, while others wore two pieces that were designs like Hello Kitty and cheetah print! Tuesday was Jersey Day. All of the sports teams wore their jerseys while others

RED & WHITE wore jerseys from sports that they play outside of school. It was a great day to show support for professional teams too. Wednesday was everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favorite themed day of the week because it was Halloween! There were all kinds of costumes both funny and scary. Kudos goes out to Mr. Cauley who dressed up as a

woman. He wore a wig with a knee-length dress that was green, black, and white. There was also a special Halloween themed RedHawk Round-up. There were many Halloween themed events including the teachers who performed the Thriller dance, a pumpkin carving contest, which was won by David MacPherson, and a costume contest, which

was won by Dalton Patterson. Thursday was Nerd Day. Students wore things like suspenders, glasses held together with tape, and pocket protectors. Everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favorite day of the week, which is Friday, was Formal Day. Girls wore dresses and skirts with fancy shoes while boys wore dress shirts and pants with a tie. It was a very exciting week and many students and staff showed how much spirit they have.

Smiths Falls gym doubles in size to meet client needs By STACEY ROY sroy@perfprint.ca

EMC Business - Mark and Danielle Leach started Good Vibrations gym on Lorne Street a couple of years ago after hearing from many that it was needed in the community. So it was a natural decision to double its size this year when clients began clamoring for more. The local gym ownersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; decision to add 2,500 square feet to their existing gym doubled its size to 5,000 square feet and has expanded the possibilities available to the gym in the future. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are so many other things we can do,â&#x20AC;? said Mark Leach, who co-owns the facility with his wife, Danielle. Those visiting the gym after a period away will be welcomed by two independent rooms: one focusing on strength training while the other room, complete in energizing tones of purple and green, is designated for cardio and classes. Good Vibrations offers zumba, step, cardio pump, and cardio kickboxing among other classes for a flat $5-per-session rate. The new space has allowed these classes more space as well as a raised stage area for the certified fitness instructor to lead

the class. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to keep up with the times,â&#x20AC;? Mark Leach said. One way theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing that is by adding new equipment such as the Precor. This machine arrived just last week and combines a stepper, elliptical and treadmill in one for a workout that will keep your muscles on guard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Your body never adapts to this machine,â&#x20AC;? he said. The owners are excited to use their new space to introduce future classes such as a fun exercise program specifically for kids to enjoy, as well as a self-defence class. A major addition that will soon be open in the facility is a canteen featuring health shakes and healthy food options like sandwiches and salads. This canteen is unique as it offers access to the gym users through a serving window as well as the general public who gain access by an independent door. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It feeds the gym people and the people off the street,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a lot of potential.â&#x20AC;? Jack Traynor has been a member of the gym for about a year now and is pleased with the changes heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is great,â&#x20AC;? Traynor

said. The Smiths Falls resident joined the gym on his birthday last year with the encouragement of his family and has noticed an improvement in his overall fitness and energy level. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel so much better,â&#x20AC;? Traynor added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best thing Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done in years.â&#x20AC;? Good Vibrations aims to serve men and women of all ages. Mark noted the facilityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oldest member is 89 years young. To cater to all fitness needs the gym offers a ProElite Wave machine that works the bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s involuntary reflexes through vibration. Danielle explains the technology is easy on the joints and great for those with chronic illness, those with circulation concerns or individuals wishing to break a fitness plateau or slowly adjust to the gym environment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is about making a positive step in your life,â&#x20AC;? she said. A drop-in fee to the gym is $10 or $45 a month for an unlimited membership. The gym is open during the week from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. and on Saturday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. and in the afternoon on Sunday. For more information please call 613-205-1194.

Rideau Trail hiker returns to roots through his personal quest from Kingston to Ottawa By STACEY ROY sroy@perfprint.ca

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; When cancer threatened to take everything, Bruce Watts decided he would take back control by conquering a life-long dream and reconnecting with nature and his past. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exactly what the Ottawa resident did this week when he entered the Perth and Smiths Falls area where some members of his family still call home. Watts enjoyed standing on the mountain overlooking Westport and seeing the post office that his grandfather had built. The immense feeling of connection to nature and his core helped to keep him high despite the challenges of the day before. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Physically I was totally beat up. There was nothing left of me,â&#x20AC;? Watts said of his condition exiting Murphys Point outside of Perth on Sunday, Oct. 28. The first segment of his hiking trek along the Rideau Trail from Kingston to Ottawa (heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s calling it his OktoberQuest) was challenging terrain and required Watts to dig deep each and every day he set off. For that reason it was a delight when his wife arrived at Murphys Point to whisk him away to Perth for a night at a bed and

Wattsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; cancer diagnosis inspired him to seize the day and realize this life-long wish. breakfast and a much-needed meal with friends. With renewed physical and emotional strength, Watts took off from Perth Oct. 29 and walked into Smiths Falls by lunch. This town holds a number of fond memories for the nature enthusiast, from his brief period attending high school here to his sister living in Roclyn House (present day Kilt & Castle) when it was fully residential.

The retired police officer admits he has missed human interaction on his country trek that will ultimately take him over 400 km, though heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had a lot of animal communication. Wattsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; online blogs (www.campology.ca) recounts each day of his journey, including his first day when he had to detour off the trail because beavers had flooded it by blocking up the culvert.

ending in Ottawa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a destination he anticipated reaching by the end of that week. Then Watts will resume another journey he began earlier this year when he was diagnosed with melanoma skin cancer. He will be heading into a check-up to follow up his surgery, which took place on Sept. 18, 2012.Early detection is the key to Wattsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; success to this point and he urges everyone to be proactive in their health. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you have any strange and ugly moles that have changed please get it checked,â&#x20AC;? Watts said. The campologist began his Rideau Trail hike on Oct. 22 the same day Mike Lush of the Rideau Trail Hike to End Cancer finished his route in Ottawa after raising almost $28,000 for research. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing this because I have cancer and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doing it for cancer so in a way heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doing it for both of us,â&#x20AC;? Watts said. The OktoberQuest has been on his bucket list for at least 20 years having traveled parts of the Rideau Trail system but never the entire thing endto-end. Wattsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; entire journey through eastern Ontario has been captured on a video blog on www.campology.ca. Check them out!

animal encounter occurred on day six when three deer dashed in front of him and then disappeared into the bushes. Having access to this kind of experience has soothed Wattsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; soul throughout his policing career and has provided a once-in-alifetime opportunity this year for him to reflect and re-energize. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like to be able to hear the sound of nature,â&#x20AC;? he added.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;People underestimate the value of unplugging. The peace it brings.â&#x20AC;? Since Oct. 22 Watts has traveled solo with just one occasion where a friend joined him for a segment of the day. Carrying 30 lbs. on his back, the city resident has traveled between 15 and 30 km a day. With so much experience (past and present) on public trail systems, The Record News EMC asked Watts to weigh in on the current dialogue going on about waterfront trails and connecting the community and downtown core. Wattsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; number one recommendation was to improve signage for visitors from the Rideau Trail. He noted the signage falls off at the edge of town and details simply say to walk through the municipal parks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a local this would have been very hard,â&#x20AC;? he said. He found the signage around Foley Mountain Conservation Area to be superb, and congratulates the town on its work to enhance the multi-use trail system that will serve many in the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think multi-use is the way to go now,â&#x20AC;? he said.

RedHawks fly into First-place Bears add two more victories LCIAA basketball championships By STAFF

By LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com

EMC Sports - The Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute senior girls basketball team eliminated the Perth Blue Devils from LCIAA semi-final contention. In a game at SFDCI last Thursday afternoon, the Perth and District Collegiate Institute team didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go down without a fight. Smiths Falls had the luck on the outside, making good on the steals and turnovers to earn a 26-12 victory over the number four seeded Blue Devils. Ending the season in first place with a 9-1 record, the RedHawks were not taking anything for granted, said the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head coach Shelly Thompson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We stuck to the game plan to do what was working,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We expected a tough battle with Perth. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re strong, and athletic and a hard-working team. They are great parameter shooters but had some trouble there today.â&#x20AC;? Smiths Falls capitalized on that as they held an

11-point lead at the half. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anything can happen in the playoffs. We had to play really hard.â&#x20AC;? It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t easy, she added, as they knew they would get some tough competition from Perth. Katrina Couture set the pace for the RedHawks with 12 points and Samantha Morell added seven. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very proud of the girls,â&#x20AC;? Thompson added, who has coached the team to a successful season with the help of her assistant, Luke Haggett. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This team has great chemistry and they get along well. They are an extremely dedicated and athletic group of girls.â&#x20AC;? Lindsay Bell had six points for Perth as she led the scoring with two field goals. Chelsea Major had four points and Brooklyn Ramsey added two. The finals tipped off at SFDCI on Tuesday with Carleton Place High School. Game two was held Wednesday in Carleton Place and if necessary, game three will be held Friday at 1 p.m. at SFDCI.

EMC Sports - So maybe the Team Canada East brain trust didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get it right after all. Sent home from the all-star teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tryouts just days earlier, Smiths Falls Bears forward Chris Maniccia went on a tear last weekend, collecting an astounding 11 points in just two games. The St. Catharines, Ont., native â&#x20AC;&#x201C; named the CCHL player of the week â&#x20AC;&#x201C; picked up a hat trick and added a pair of assists in a 6-5 win in Brockville last Friday. He then did one better at home Sunday afternoon, scoring twice and assisting on four others in the Bearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 7-2 victory over the Kanata Stallions. Maniccia, who had been slipping in the league scoring race, has zoomed past everyone and now stands alone with 41 points in just 22 games. That puts him five points up on his nearest rival, Dalen Hedges of the Nepean Raiders. Hedges is off participating in the Jr. A World Challenge this week.

In Brockville last Friday, Tyler Akeson, who also returned home from the Team Canada East tryouts, answered the Bravesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first goal of the night just 10 minutes later in the first period. Assisting Akeson on this power play marker were teammates Ryan Eardley and Cole Allard. The Bears dominated the score board during the second

Akeson had a goal and two assists in the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 7-2 win at the Memorial Community Centre. They play host to the Cornwall Colts Friday night. Game time is 7:30 p.m. period placing three goals into the nets leaving it at 4-2 going into the third period. Powerplay was the Bearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; middle name as each goal was scored with the man advantage. The offensive skills of Chris Maniccia sealed the deal for the Bears when he scored the last two goals. Yannick Crete, Karson McCartney and Cameron Romoff all assisted Maniccia. Down 6-2, the Braves mounted a third period comeback but fell a goal short. Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s match against the Stallions was all Bears from

period one as they claimed their second win in as many starts, this time by a 7-2 margin. Maniccia and Patrick Sexton broke the ice with power play goals just five minutes apart. This dominance continued in the second period when Crete and Maniccia fired another two between the pipes to Kanataâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lone power play goal that period. The Bears pushed it even further in the third period by answering Kanataâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal by Brandon Petrie with three more of their own. Akeson, Karson McCartney and Crete

were given credit for the other goals. Upcoming games This week the Bears will be getting in a lot of ice time. This Friday, Nov. 9 they will welcome the Cornwall Colts for a 7:30 p.m. start.

Bantam rep Bears bring home gold from Kemptville Mega Tournament Other goals were scored by Noah Foster, Caleb Phillips and Thomas Nasmith with goaltender Riley Harris coming away with an eventful win. Having earned a place in the tournament finals, the Bears faced Pembroke for the championship. The teams played evenly for three periods and ended regular time in a 2-2 tie on two goals from Burchill. Overtime saw both teams with excellent scoring chances but it was the Bearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Kirby Scott who pounced on a rebound and buried the puck top shelf to win it for the Bears. The team has its sights firmly set on the Pembroke Silver Stick Tournament in two weeks time and they pres-

ently hold first place in West Division of the Upper Canada Minor Hockey League. Coached by Barry Degray, their next home game will be Sunday Nov. 11 at 5 p.m. against rivals Kemptville Panthers.

Lombardy’s 2012 karting season crosses finish line with awards gala By STACEY ROY sroy@perfprint.ca

EMC Sports - The sport of karting is a family affair at the Lombardy Karting Club, and this atmosphere was most certainly on display at the annual closing awards banquet. “Every time that you people gather you gather as a family,” remarked Hugh Colton, MC of the banquet that took place Oct. 27 at the Lombardy Agricultural Hall. Trophies were handed out to the top three performers of each race category based on accumulative racing scores that were earned over the 2012 season. This year’s racing season ran from May 6 - Sept. 30, 2012 with about 11 races held on the Lombardy Agricultural Society’s grounds. “The numbers are growing all the time,” added Gord Costello who founded the club three years ago. “We’re pretty proud of it.”

This year the club welcomed 100 family members to the track for races throughout the week. Over the course of those nights a number of memorable moments were created, including the impressive inaugural racing season had by Carson Chalker. “Carson had an awesome season this year. I don’t think there was much he didn’t win,” Costello commented when bringing the young racer up for his first place Novice trophy for 7-11 year olds. The senior light class had a first as well with two second place trophy winners (Brandon Parker and Carter Lalonde) this season. Costello said the racers and best friends had the same season score and it was decided they would share second place this year. In addition to thanking the racers who brought action to the track each week, Cos-

tello also presented plaques of thanks to volunteers who have gone above and beyond in making the 2012 season a success. Keith Drummond and his staff who have hosted a number of fundraising dinners were among the many thanked for their assistance this season. Costello told the crowd that Drummond’s support has meant almost $20,000 of funding support for the club. “We can’t thank you enough for what you do for us,” Costello said while shaking the man’s hand. Plans for the 2013 season will begin almost as soon as this year’s season wraps up. Costello said the annual general meeting for the club will be held Nov. 18 where the past season will be discussed and plans for 2013 will begin to be formed. A swap meet for parts and equipment will also be held at this session.
