Kettle bells ringing again this season in support of local families By STACEY ROY

EMC News - Every Salvation Army kettle in the community represents a family in need, but everyone can help by assisting the army in packing up hundreds of Christmas hampers this season. This year the Salvation Army has expanded its kettle campaign to include the collection of canned goods needed to provide a Christmas dinner with all the trimmings to an area family who is struggling. “There is going to be a big need this year,” said Major Faith Cameron. “Our monthly needs have been up every month this year.” To accommodate for these needs and the changing costs in food, the Salvation Army has

decided to ask the community for monetary donations and to physically help it build this year’s Christmas hampers by donating speci¿c items needed for the baskets. This includes beans in tomato sauce, soda crackers, soup, juice, cookies, canned vegetables, cranberries, stuf¿ng, potatoes, carrots and apples or oranges to name a few. Donations may be dropped off at the Salvation Army church on Brockville Street in Smiths Falls. The plan is to place donation barrels at area grocery stores in the near future as well. A complete list of needed items will be placed on each barrel. Last year the Salvation Army handed out more than 817 Christmas baskets throughout

Lanark County, 417 of those in the Smiths Falls area alone. Beginning last week volunteers have been attending to kettles at key retail locations across the communities they serve and will do so until the end of the holiday season. This year’s kettle campaign launch was held Nov. 16 in each community. Smiths Falls mayor Dennis Staples attended his local launch at the Giant Tiger store to temporarily give back the municipal kettle campaign trophy to the church. “Smiths Falls will defend our title to assist the Salvation Army,” the mayor said. Last year the town won the ¿rst municipal kettle campaign trophy for raising the most funds on a single day for

the cause. The municipalities of Smiths Falls, Perth, Merrickville, Carleton Place and Mississippi Mills all take part in the friendly competition. This year Smiths Falls council members will be manning the kettle Dec. 15 at Andress’ Independent Grocer while their Perth counterparts will do their best to wrench the trophy away the same day. The Kettle Campaign is the Salvation Army’s largest fundraising drive of the year, which supports the Christmas hampers and the many social programs available to the community all year long. Volunteers for this year’s kettles are still welcomed. In Smiths Falls call Colleen Muldoon at 613-2833563 and in Perth call Jeanne Jenner at 613-267-4652.

EMC Events - Santa Claus will be ushering in the holiday season Sunday when the annual parade makes its way down Beckwith Street. Christmas caroling and all the brightest tinsel and lights will be on display at 1 p.m. this year where a number of Àoats and bands like Smiths Falls’ own Gordon Pipe Band will come together to celebrate the season. Carol Levere, Legion president, is pleased to welcome Peter MacPherson as this year’s parade organizer. “We’ve never really had that until this year,” Levere said of the position. MacPherson has been busy in the weeks leading up to the parade visiting area stores and inviting them to take part in the parade, which has meant some returning and new faces. “We’re hoping for more,” Levere said. All participants are to gather at the Youth Arena parking lot before the 11:30 a.m. judging. Floats are in the running to receive one of ¿ve acknowledgements: best overall entry, best Christmas entry, best religious entry, most original entry and best commercial entry. The 2012 parade will begin at 1 p.m. The traditional route of Elmsley Street to Beckwith Street, to Chambers Street and then disbursing at Chambers and Market will be maintained. The Legion has historically held the parade during the afternoon, however, it is planning to hand out a Àyer at this year’s event to gauge interest in an evening parade in 2013.

EMC Events – Canadian icon Rita MacNeil is coming to Perth for not one, but two concerts, on Dec. 7 and 8 at Perth and District Collegiate. With the ¿rst show all but sold out, a second show for MacNeil’s Home For Christmas concert was recently added. “It is just wonderful that people are coming,” said MacNeil on the need for a second concert. “I am looking forward to the shows.” She calls Christmas a very special time of year, and always enjoys the holiday season. “I know over the years I have put out Christmas music and it has been very well received and I thank people for that,” said MacNeil. MacNeil says she loves listening to Christmas music especially choirs singing traditional carols. One of her favourites is Silent Night. “It is one of the songs I listened to as a child, I loved to listen to it with my mother,” recalled MacNeil. The concerts will feature some of her originals, traditional carols and selections from her new album. “It’s not a Christmas album but I would like to introduce it and hopefully people will like it,” said MacNeil. Her new album ‘Saving Grace’ is MacNeil’s 24th and her ¿rst in eight years of all original material. “It was de¿nitely a journey,” said MacNeil. “I worked with very ¿ne musicians and hopefully folks will ¿nd enjoyment with it.” Her tour will take her across Canada starting on Nov. 22 in Newfoundland and ¿nishing on Dec. 17 in Edmonton. She really enjoys touring,

records than Garth Brooks and 1991 she played at Royal Albert Hall in England. In 1992 she was inducted into the Order of Canada and received honourary doctorates from ¿ve Canadian universities. Her annual Christmas special on CBC attracts millions of viewers every year and will surely do the same this year.

Regional recreation network launches in Lanark, Leeds-Grenville By STACEY ROY


Jason Dunkerley, who recently earned a silver and bronze medal at the 2012 Paralympic event in London received congratulations and applause from the crowd at the Nov. 14 tri-county Recreation Summit in Smiths Falls. Dunkerley shares these awards with his guide runner, but tells the audience his athletic journey didn’t begin at the Paralympic track. Rather at his school for the blind many years earlier where he was able to build his skills and develop a love for the sport. “I sort of started to catch the bug a little bit,” he said. Having programs that catered to his blindness was the ¿rst step in putting Dunkerley in a position to develop his love of running by giving him positive sports experiences to encourage him to do more. Today he is a member of the Active Living Alliance. This national organization works

to link people with any form of disability to recreation programs in their communities. It also offers a Youth Ambassador Across Canada program that encourages youth to tell their personal story of ¿tness and inspire others. Jeffrey is an example of teenagers stepping up and inspiring others with disabilities and communities to make sports programs available to all. She’s a Grade 10 student in Ottawa and knows ¿rst hand the social, physical and

secondary to the University of Guelph track team. There he quali¿ed for his ¿rst of four Paralympic competitions. “I think recreation is sort of where it all begins. It de¿nitely is where it began for me,” Dunkerley said. He underlines any activity must be meaningful in order to have the positive impacts outlined above. The Active Living Alliance (ALA - www. offers a resource kit to help athletic organizations adjust their programs to be more inclusive. At the presentation, Dunkerley had these tips to pass along: • When using pinnies in sport, purchase ones with bright colours to help those with visual impairments. • For those who are deaf, waving a Àag at the start and end of a play may be all the cues they need to play inclusively on their team. • Use a lighter or softer ball to slow down the play and allow those with disabilities a chance to use their skills. • Tie a plastic bag around the soccer ball so those who are visually impaired can hear it coming towards them. “You can get creative with it. There is no script or right or wrong,” Dunkerley said. The ALA welcomes calls from organizations (1-800771-0663) that have questions on how they can become more inclusive.

reation but it effects people,” Kidd said. Keynote speakers Nobody in the room knew these effects better than Paralympic athlete, Jason Dunkerley and Jennifer Jeffrey of Young Advocates Across Ontario whose medical condition leaves her with physical disabilities. The crowd erupted in applause when Dunkerley’s achievements in running were outlined, including his 2012 Paralympic medals: a bronze in the 1,500 metre and silver in the 5,000 metre races. “On behalf of everyone congratulations,” said Ian Pearson of Perth who attended the event. When asked how it felt to have a medal put around his neck, the blind Ottawa athlete replied: “It’s a pretty incredible feeling for sure. There’s nothing really like it.”


EMC News - Creating partnerships and synergy for new projects in recreation is now possible in Lanark, Leeds and Grenville following the launch of a new regional recreation network, Nov. 14 inside the Smiths Falls Memorial Community Centre. In introducing the new network and its origins with the Lanark, Leeds & Grenville Healthy Communities Partnership (HCP), Richard Kidd, member of the HCP committee, said: “They’ve given birth to it.” As with all new life, the network is looking for a name to call its own and attendees at this year’s second annual Recreation Summit, where the launch took place, were invited to write down their name suggestions on a graf¿ti wall. The network itself will assume responsibility for hosting the recreation summit each year, but is also looking for other projects such as workshops and speaker series. Membership in the network will be $15 annually with all attendees at the 2012 summit automatically con¿rmed as members. The idea for a network came from discussions in the early stages of HCP when it was discovered there was no forum for recreation professionals to meet and share best practices. The ultimate goal of the network is to one day operate on its own, independent of the HCP. Wrapping up his comments for the day, Kidd applauded those involved with recreation in the room, for their hand in positively changing lives in the area through their work. “What you’re doing is such a special thing. You do rec-

emotional bene¿ts access to sporting programs can have. The Recreation Summit was her ¿rst public presentation. “It makes you feel like you’re a part of something,” Jeffrey added. “It also means (the opportunity to have) friends.” This is important, as attendees heard that one in two children with disabilities report having no friends. She would like to have sports programs for those speci¿cally with disabilities and the opportunity to take part in programs that are inclusive and welcome abilities of all types. “It’s both very rewarding,” Jeffrey said. She currently takes part in an inclusive track and ¿eld program where she often runs with ¿ve-year old able-bodied athletes. Jeffrey sees this as an opportunity to educate a younger generation about the abilities of those with one form of disability or another. “It’s good because it gives them a chance to get used to it (individuals with disabilities),” Jeffrey said. At the same time she likes the peer support and ability to push herself in an environment that is safe and encouraging, such as programs designed for the less able-bodied. It was the support of Dunkerley’s school track program where all participants were blind that gave him the con¿dence to move on in post-

Colby McGeachy, Certi¿ed General Accountants is one of BBBS’ all-around supporters and the recipient of our corporate award this year.

Everett was generous with advice, sharing his expertise to help the team create better fund development resources.

Although the end of a match is dif¿cult, Dave and Cindy wanted to stay involved and asked to be re-matched with a new Little. They were matched with Devin in February 2012, and have been going strong for the last nine months. Dave and Cindy participated in Bowl for Kids last year for the ¿rst time, and managed to raise almost $4,000 for the agency. As well, in memory of Cindy’s father, Bill Young, who passed away this year, donations were forwarded to BBBS in his memory.

THE EMC - 4 - Thursday, November 22, 2012


EMC Lifestyle - The Traditional Big Brothers Big Sisters one on one program has been the heart of the national organization for almost 100 years now. Although times are changing and BBBS is growing in new ways to adapt to the needs of children and families, they believe that the Traditional Program will always have its place as the core of the organization. Bigs range in age from 22 to 80, and they are women, men and couples who spend three to Âżve hours each week with a child in the community. Due to the relationship with their Bigs, the BBBS Littles have learned to play piano, become photographers, run marathons, skate in the middle of the rink instead of along the boards, they have gone to Parliament and spoke to politicians and became President of their school. But most of all, because of their Bigs, they have learned to trust; they have learned that they are special and they have learned to believe in themselves. Dr. Seuss said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, things arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to get better, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re NOTâ&#x20AC;?. Things are getting better because of Big Brothers and Big Sisters volunteering their time. Each year BBBS likes to recognize one of their Bigs as Big of the Year. This year it is a couple. Dave and Cindy Young came to the organization about two years ago. They had heard about BBBS through employee, Kiefer Vincent. In June of 2011 they were

asbestos cause cancer and creating a public registry is a crucial ¿rst step in making sure Canadians are not exposed to this harmful substance,” says Dan Demers, director of public issues at the Canadian Cancer Society. “Once it’s known that a building contains asbestos then appropriate action can be taken to protect people from this substance.” From the 1920s to 1990s, asbestos was used as insulation and sound proofing in buildings throughout Canada. It is estimated that 240,000 homes across the country were insulated with materials that might contain asbestos, but the public can’t ¿nd out which buildings contain the asbestos and the list may not be complete. Extended and frequent

exposure to asbestos is associated with lung cancer and mesothelioma, a rare cancer of the lining of the chest or abdominal cavity. Poll results also reveal that: • Almost half of Canadians – 46 per cent – know nothing or only a little about how to protect themselves from exposure to asbestos. Only 21 per cent say they know a lot. • A large majority of Canadians – 94 per cent – say the federal government should be responsible for ensuring Canadians understand the risk of asbestos and for informing them about how they can protect themselves from this substance.

EMC News – The majority of Canadians are sending a clear message that a public registry of buildings containing asbestos, including private homes, is important and 78 per cent say it’s the responsibility of the federal government to create one, according to poll results released by the Canadian Cancer Society. The Canadian Cancer Society and the Canadian Medical Association have joined forces in urging the federal government to establish one central public registry of all buildings in Canada that contain asbestos. The registry should be free, easily accessible and include privately owned buildings, buildings on aboriginal lands and government-owned structures. “We know all forms of

One womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s journey through loss to forgiveness By MARLA DOWDALL

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; From the smiling blues eyes of a baby boy, to photos of an athletic young man who had a vivacious sporting and family life, to a photograph of a man proudly embracing his children just days before Christmas. This was perhaps the last photograph taken of Bob McIntosh before the one that was taken by the medical examiner at the morgue just a week later. In telling the horriÂżc story of her husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death, Katy Hutchison begged those listening to never forget the way he lived. In conveying her story and sharing photographs depicting her husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life to the large audience gathered at Notre Dame Catholic High School in Carleton Place, Nov. 16, Hutchison spoke of the power of forgiveness, and respect. She relayed the message of moving on with life in a positive fashion. Hers is a story that resulted in the forgiving of her husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s killer, Ryan Aldridge. It was New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eve, 1997, Squamish, British Columbia, Katy and her husband Bob McIntosh were sitting around with a few friends, who were in town for the holidays â&#x20AC;&#x201C; taking stock of life, what had been, what the future held. Then came a knock at the


Katy Hutchison speaks to students at Notre Dame Catholic High School in Carleton Place, Nov. 16 about the journey to forgiveness after her husband Bob was murdered New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eve 1997. She has come to forgive his killer and shared her story of positive synergy with students, staff and members of the public. The event was organized by the Lanark County Community Justice Program. door around 10:30 p.m. It was another couple, saying a young man Jamie, down the block was having a party at his parentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home. They were away on holiday. Bob called the house twice, each time seeking out Jamie, neither time having any success. Bob and his fellow male friend left to go check and make sure everything was

okay down the road. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He never came home,â&#x20AC;? Katy said. Two hundred youth were inside the house. Jamie had â&#x20AC;&#x153;taken off.â&#x20AC;? Bob headed upstairs to ensure there were no kids in the bedrooms. There he encountered a young man. Exchanging words with the youth, Bob was then punched in the face. He fell to the

ground. At this point Aldridge made his way over to Bob. In what Aldridge later described as â&#x20AC;&#x153;four soccer type kicksâ&#x20AC;? to Bobâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head, the fatal blows were struck, severing an artery in the back of his head. Bob died of a brain hemorrhage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I barely remember the police coming to my door,â&#x20AC;? she recalled.

In the hospital, standing in the emergency room watching ER staff tend to her husband â&#x20AC;&#x201C; she thought, â&#x20AC;&#x153;they get to go home when they are done, but my shift, it was never going to end. I was going to have to Âżnd a way to live with what happened.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;People asked me how I could forgive. How could I not? My kids lost their dad, I

didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want them to lose me too,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They only had one parent and I wanted to be a good parent.â&#x20AC;? Opening her heart, she let herself forgive. But it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a quick journey to forgiveness. Returning home at 4 a.m., Jan. 1, 1998, she tried to Âżgure out how to tell her children the horrible news. Her twin boy and girl, Emma and Sam, were just two weeks shy of their Âżfth birthday and it was only days after Christmas. They should have been doing what kids do best, playing with their new toys, she said. Her young boy Samâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s response was to ask for Cheerios. In opening her presentation, Hutchison described Bob as someone who loved to ski, loved cars, and who took up marathon running. He went to law school and this was where the two met. They ended up married and living in a rented apartment in Vancouver. They soon moved to a little town nearby, Squamish, eventually getting two dogs as a bit of a test before deciding they wanted children. Emma and Sam, their twins, were born a short time later. In 1997, Bob was turning 40 and was taking part in the world triathlon championships in Australia. See JUSTICE page 7

JUSTICE After his death, Hutchison, who had been working in community economic development, hired someone to take on her job and she and the children moved back to Vancouver to be nearer to family and friends. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was the year my kids began school,â&#x20AC;? she said emotionally. Going through the trauma, while surrounded by media and the ever-looming feeling of the unresolved case, a positive synergy was what Hutchison sought out. She continued to describe her own journey, trying to make sense of what had happened to her husband. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bob was killed as a result of mob mentality,â&#x20AC;? she noted, adding the tragedy was made worse by the silence of potential witnesses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Silence is deadly. No one called 9-1-1,â&#x20AC;? she described of the party where her husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life was taken away. No one did call 9-1-1 until their family friend found Bob lying dead on the Ă&#x20AC;oor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When the police came, no one would talk,â&#x20AC;? she recalled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That code of silence lasted for Âżve years.â&#x20AC;? The police went undercover in order to get the information they needed to make an arrest. In the meantime, â&#x20AC;&#x153;friendships fell apart, marriages disintegrated,â&#x20AC;? and one person committed suicide. It is in our very human nature to want to belong to a group, however if someone feels uneasy or gets a sick feeling that something isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as it should be - they need to Âżnd the courage to speak up, she emphasized. As well, society of today has become desensitized to violence, whether through technology, television or video games. Technology is also shaping relationships in a way it hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t before, she said, pointing to social networks and texting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have never before been so globally connected, but disconnected from people down the street.â&#x20AC;? She encouraged the audience to allow technology to enhance their relationships, rather than take away from them. She asked those in attendance who had been at a party with over 100 people, where there was no adult supervision, to raise their hands. In situations like these, she noted, they are perfect opportunities for tragedies to occur such as rapes, alcohol poisoning, Âżghts and property damage. The home where the party occurred, where Bob lost his life, the homeowners were never able to go back to the house again, they were emotionally unable to handle it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bottom line is there is no such thing as a safe gathering without adult supervision.â&#x20AC;? She suggested to the teens in attendance to keep the details of any gathering ofĂ&#x20AC;ine, make a plan on how to get everyone home safe and watch the door for people who are uninvited or unfamiliar to them. Photograph She next showed the audi-

a monster, but Aldridge sat across from her in the interrogation room sobbing. This was somebodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son, brother, best friend, she said of what she was feeling at the time. She urged him to plead guilty so the family would not have to endure a trial, and he did. He pleaded guilty to manslaughter and was given a Âżve-year sentence. He served his time at the Matsqui Institution in Abbotsford, a medium security facility. When he went away Hutchison kept hearing that he would probably come out with Hep C and be addicted to drugs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go in that way,â&#x20AC;? she said, noting the young man, she felt, had

years worth of questions, like what happened and why. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I need to understand and I need him to understand what this has been like for me and my kids,â&#x20AC;? she said. While the police couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t accommodate her request, she was invited to make a video about these very feelings for Aldridge. And also to express what she felt he needed to do moving forward. He made a full confession and wrote her a letter of apology, something he wished to give her personally. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought my heart was going to come out of my chest I was so afraid,â&#x20AC;? she described of meeting him. She had had visions of

ence a photograph of herself and a young man, asking who they thought he was. She noted it was Aldridge, the young man who killed her husband. When the police picked him up, after Âżve years of investigation, they asked what he was thinking that night. He said he was angry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anger will manifest itself in anti-social behaviour,â&#x20AC;? she said, listing depression, alcoholism and substance abuse as just a few consequences for bottled-up anger. She wanted to break the cycle of anger for Aldridge. When the police called her and told her they were Âżnally going to make an arrest, she asked to be there. She had



just made some poor choices. So she started to worry about him. She did end up spending a day in jail with Aldridge, saying it was an opportunity for both of them to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Âżnd the humanity around what happened.â&#x20AC;? After he served out his sentence, she hired him to go around to schools to partner with her for her presentations, to share the message of forgiveness. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work together anymore. He has truly moved on with his life.â&#x20AC;? In fact, Aldridge got married recently. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The building up of anger was what put Ryan in the position he was in,â&#x20AC;? she con-

cluded. And while Aldridge may not have been beside Hutchison for her presentation in Carleton Place, she did show a video statement from the young man. At the time of the crime he was only 20 years old. In his video, he spoke of growing up in Squamish, and being picked on in elementary school. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell anyone and chose to keep his feelings and sentiments to himself. Then when he was in Grade 5, his parents split and he was faced with the tough decision of which parent to move in with - which one to please and See FORGIVE page 23 Vehicle(s) may be shown with optional equipment.

Celebrate the season with Santa


Following the leader These ducks were seen marching in single file during a sunny day in Kemptville recently. The weather took

a turn last week from some frosty temperatures to warmer days.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Many thanks to OPP: reader DEAR EDITOR: Editor’s note: The following is open letter to OPP Inspector Gerry Salisbury and submitted to the EMC for publication. I am the wife of the hunter who was lost in the woods between Clayton and Cedar Hill Road on Thursday night, Nov. 8. The OPP arrived at our friend’s home (where the hunt camp is) around 6 p.m. and from then on it was a constant search with ATVs, dogs, helicopter and I do not know how many wonderful men from the search and rescue division. Two of the regular force came into the house and sat with us (his hunting partners, myself and the wife of his hunting partner) from 6 p.m. until around 5:30 a.m., never ever letting us lose hope that he would be found. When Inspector Gerry Salisbury arrived early Friday morn-

ing he assured me that no one would be leaving until my husband was found. While Gerry was talking to me Bill phoned from Mrs. Wing’s house off Cedar Hill Road - he had walked from Ramsay Cons 2B to the Cedar Hill Road coming out at 8 a.m. Let me tell you that no one was happier about this wonderful ending than all the OPP who had worked so hard looking for him. I just wanted to say publicly how lucky we are to have this wonderful group of dedicated men and women serving our community in many, many ways and this is just one of them. Thank you so much Gail Carvill, Carleton Place

EMC Editorial - Santa Claus is coming to town! No truer words can be spoken as this weekend the Jolly Ol’ Elf makes appearances in Carleton Place and Smiths Falls. Santa will be a busy man in the coming weeks. His journey throughout the area actually began last weekend when he was in Kemptville Nov. 17 for the Kinsmen Santa Claus Parade. This weekend he moves on to Lanark County. Santa and Mrs. Claus may be the highlight of any Christmas parade, however there are many people who have come together to participate. Whether it is through volunteering, decorating a Àoat, handing out candy kudos should be given to all of those people for truly sharing in and helping to encourage the holiday spirit. The Carleton Place Santa Claus Parade, is an initiative of the local Business Improvement Association (BIA). Thousands of spectators are expected for Saturday’s (Nov. 24) parade, which begins at 5 p.m. Starting at Townline Road it will travel the full length of Bridge Street, turning onto Lansdowne Avenue. The big man then makes his way to Smiths Falls this Sunday, Nov. 25. The Santa Claus parade will begin at 1 p.m. at the Youth Arena parking lot and will end after the parade by stopping at the Smiths Falls Royal Canadian Legion Branch 95. There Santa will visit with children and hot chocolate and snacks will be offered up. To kick off the month of December, Perth will be featuring its Santa Claus Parade, Saturday, Dec. 1 at 5 p.m. The “A Cartoon Christmas” themed event features a variety of categories for entrants to enter and potentially win a prize. The Lanark Village Christmas parade is set for Dec. 8. In Mississippi Mills, a busy weekend begins with the annual tradition of Light up the Night Friday, Dec. 7 at 7 p.m. The Pakenham Santa Claus parade rolls on Dec. 8 at 1 p.m. and in Almonte the “Parade of Lights” takes place on Dec. 9, beginning this year at 5 p.m. A little closer to Christmas, take some time and head to Merrickville’s 38th annual Santa Claus Parade, Dec. 22 beginning at 11 a.m. Please visit your local municipal website for complete listings of parades throughout the area and expanded information on other events happening in Lanark, Leeds and Grenville to celebrate the holiday season.

Bartering was a necessary survival tool for the thirties EMC Lifestyle - It seemed to me that not much money changed hands back in those Depression years. Of course, there wasn’t much money around. Mother pretty well ran the house on what was in the sugar bowl holding her egg money, which came from selling eggs, cream, butter, chickens and sticky buns door to door in Renfrew on Saturdays. And of course, in the summer times, a few more pennies were realized when she could add fresh vegetables from our ample garden to her wares. Father always had a few coins in his pocket, but they were few and far between indeed. It seemed to me back then, that most of the commerce of

Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

the day was done by bartering. Mr. Briscoe at Briscoe’s General Store wasn’t interested in trading what he sold for chickens, vegetables, cream or butter. After all, the entire Northcote farm area had an amply supply of those things themselves. But he always welcomed Mother’s sticky buns. These she traded for sugar and green tea. For the rare times old Doctor Murphy had to drive out

all the way from Renfrew, and there were very few coins in the egg money bowl, he would be paid for his visit with a freshly plucked chicken, a sealer jar or fresh cream, and of course, eggs. There was always an ample supply of eggs, and Dr. Murphy, it seemed to me, never expected to get hard cold cash for his trip out from Renfrew. The stores in town were a different matter. Those owned locally were used to bartering with the farming community. But you could never make a deal with Walker’s Store, which was owned by some big ¿rm in Toronto. It had to be cold hard cash. But it wasn’t unusual to see Mother making a deal at Scott’s Hardware or Aikenhead Store.

A fresh chicken for chicken wire, or freshly churned butter for cough medicine. There really was a Mr. Scott and a Mr. Aikenhead, and they seemed to know ready cash was scarce. I doubt Mother was ever turned away because she hadn’t the money to pay for what she needed. It seemed to me Father was continually bartering with other farmers in Northcote. It wasn’t at all unusual to see him walking a young heifer out the lane with a rope around its neck and coming back with a colt. Or he would load a sheep in the back of the old Model T, and come back with a couple of newborn piglets. It was how the farm community survived the terrible Depression that had closed in around them.

I once got a lovely coat from my little friend Joyce who had outgrown it. I doubt we had anything to give her in return… they were so much better off than we were. After all, Joyce lived in a brick house and had a toilet! As regular as clock work, we had visits from Rawleigh and Watkins door to door salesmen. They travelled by horse and buggy, and we could always tell when they were coming in our long lane, because they both had big brass bells around their horse’s

necks which gave plenty warning they were on their way. They were both great salesmen, and it was hard to resist their wares. It wasn’t unusual for Mother, when she had bought over her limit to start bartering with them. They bantered back and forth, and when the salesmen realized there wasn’t enough money to pay for what Mother had chosen, they could either take the couple pounds of butter and a few eggs, or pack up and leave. They usually accepted the barter. It seemed to me back then, that bartering was simply a way of life. There was no embarrassment to trading one thing for another. It was just another tool that helped people of the thirties survive.

Support sought for 2012 Christmas basket project DEAR EDITOR: On behalf of the area clergy who are active in the Lanark and District Ministerial Association, I wish to convey their appreciation for your support of their Christmas basket project in past years. Without the support of businesses and community groups, as well as our churches and their members, this annual project, Âżrst begun in 1989 would not be possible. Last year, 140 baskets were packed and distributed shortly before Christmas. Over 60 volunteers made the packing effort run quickly and efÂż-

ciently. Each basket included a turkey, fresh vegetables and fruit, canned goods, and bread, as well as a gift for each member of the receiving household. It is that time of year again to ask for your support in reaching out to share with needful households in our communities some of the blessings that we are privileged to celebrate this season. This year we expect to provide baskets to a similar number of households. The cost of groceries last year was about $50 per basket. Please make your cheque

payable to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lanark Highlands Food Pantryâ&#x20AC;? and indicate on the cheque it is for the Christmas Basket Project. A charitable receipt will be issued and mailed to you with a report on the project at the end of the year by the Lanark Ministerial. All donations and correspondence should be mailed or delivered to the Lanark Ministerial Association c/o St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church, 115 Clarence St., Box 331, Lanark, ON, K0G1K0.

For the love of the game (I wonder) skills to play in NHL and are playing at their only option? Personally for myself, and players I played with and against, we would live in an igloo in Alaska to play in the NHL and would not be holding out for $150,000 per game for playing 15 minutes of time. If and when the NHL resumes playing the game of hockey the fans could return the favour by letting the NHL players play a lot

of games to empty seats. There are options for fans to take care of their â&#x20AC;&#x153;hockey Âżxâ&#x20AC;?, Âżll the stands on a Friday night at our local community centre to watch the Smiths Falls Bears, attend other Central League games, watch the Ottawa 67s or Kingston Frontenacs or even our local Junior B teams who are playing at a higher level, dreaming of playing in the NHL.

DEAR EDITOR: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sad day when our national sport is all about money and greed. Do the players and owners care or realize how many thousands of people depend on their franchise for their livelihood and how many fans surpass their budget to buy season tickets and general admission? How fair is it for NHL players migrating to Europe displacing players on teams that do not have the

DEAR EDITOR: The federal government plans to approve a generic version of the painkiller commonly known as Oxycontin. Most of you will recognize that name as it has been in the news countless times in the past 10 years or so, more often than not, related to a tragic story of drug abuse or crime. The abuse and misuse of this drug, more than any legal pharmaceutical or illegal controlled substance, has been the cause of great costs to our society in terms of deaths, family destruction, criminal activity, and addiction. Earlier this year Oxycontin was removed from pharmacies and a newer version, Oxyneo was put

on the market which was formulated to reduce the chances of its abuse by injection. Early results have seen a marked reduction in pharmacy robberies and related crime. Now a pharmaceutical manufacturer has developed a generic copy of Oxycontin and expects Health Canada to grant them permission to sell this product on Nov. 24. Health Canada is arguing that the company and the drug have met all the legal requirements and the current law prevents them from denying approval. There is no question that the abuse of Oxycontin is a real and substantial risk to the health of our population and the safety of our communities. I realize full well that the overwhelming majority of patients that were prescribed Oxycontin used it responsibly

and found it greatly improved the quality of their lives, but the consumption of drugs from the oxycodone family by the U.S. and Canada exceeds that of the remainder of the planet. So why is our continent hooked on these painkillers? And why will our government not step in to reduce the risk by changing the laws on generic drug approvals? There is no doubt that oxycodone abuse, addiction, and related crime will increase as a result of allowing this generic copy to come to market. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re concerned, contact your member of parliament. Brian Turner CP Drug Strategy Committee

Nick of Time Artisan show kicks off Christmas season EMC Events - December and the holiday season are just around the corner and so is Perth’s own 19th annual Nick of Time Show featuring some of the area’s ¿nest artisans. Over the years, the Nick of Time Show has established itself as an integral part of downtown Perth’s old fashioned traditional Christmas festivities. As in the past, the show will have all the necessary ingredients to help you enjoy a truly festive holiday shopping experience. The Nick of Time Artisan Show is a juried show of original and unique work, Dec. 1 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at McMartin House, 125 Gore St. E. The aroma of hot cider and freshly cut evergreen boughs, the uplifting sound of a Bach fugue pervading the air, and the sight of friends, neighbours and fellow shoppers will all combine to put you in the spirit of the season. The Nick of Time Show is more than just another craft show. It’s a juried show with high quality, one of a kind gift items fashioned by over 20 skilled local artisans. It is also a unique shopping experience in one

of Canada’s most elegant heritage homes. In keeping with the spirit of the season and the heritage venue, the traditional crafts are always a main attraction. Look for everything from delicately scented handmade soaps to pewter ware, beeswax candles, ¿ne woodworking, evergreen centerpieces, hand spun dyed wool and much more. Food is also a major part of any festive occasion. Our German trained chocolatier will be returning and of course no Lanark County event would be complete without a substantial showing of maple syrup products. Adding to the food segment of the show this year we are pleased to welcome to our ranks a local food producer who makes pears poached in mulled wine baked in pastry, Christmas cakes, minced tarts, shortbread and authentic tourtieres and many other items made from her own organic garden. Among our new participants is an artisan who combines a passion for beautiful writing instruments with a love of wood to create one of a kind pens and pencils fashioned from

rich exotic woods. As well, two ¿bre artists will join us. One makes whimsical creatures from natural sheep’s wool through a process called needle felting; the other is a traditional rug hooker who uses hand-dyed wools to produce charming chair pads, Àoor mats, wall hangings, etc. Returning this year after an absence will be a local astrophotographer who will present his photos of events in the heavens which actually occurred billions of light years ago. Also look for furniture which is too exquisite to be called rustic, although made from harvested shrubs in the wild. This is just a sampling of what we have to offer, but you can count on original, traditional and unique gifts

that can’t be found anywhere else. So take a break from plastic ornaments and electronic holiday music. Enjoy some time in the Victorian splendour of the cedar and pine draped rooms of beautiful, historic McMartin House and do some relaxed shopping in a festive atmosphere. You’ll be welcomed with complimentary hot cider and Christmas cookies and by a greeter dressed in period costume. And be sure to enter a free draw for a basket of gifts donated by participating artisans. See you Saturday, Dec. 1 at the McMartin House, 125 Gore St. E., Perth from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. for the 19th annual Nick of Time Show. Admission is free.

Balderson Village Cheese

Postcard campaign highlights gap in support for adults with severe dental problems can affect a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overall health.â&#x20AC;? The Ontario Oral Health Alliance estimates one in three Ontarians cannot afford to get regular dental treatment. High costs and lack of dental insurance are some of the main barriers. While OHIP covers the rest of the body, infections in the mouth are not covered. In 2008, the provincial government committed to develop a program to pay dental costs for low-income families. Financial-assistance programs were created or expanded, but only cover dental treatment for children in need â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not adults. Signed postcards were collected from around the tri-counties and delivered to Members of Provincial Parliament, Steve Clark MPP for Leeds and Grenville and Randy Hillier MPP for Lanark, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington on Thursday, Nov. 8. Clark and Hillier sat down and had a conversation with representatives from the Tri County Dental Coalition, Community Health Centres, the Health Unit and community members. Both MPPs were very receptive to the campaign and have offered assistance in bringing this issue forward to the Provincial Government.

EMC News - While most postcards depict scenic vacation getaway spots, a new â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;dentalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; postcard shows how oral care for some Ontario adults is far from pictureperfect. The postcard is part of a province-wide advocacy campaign launched by the Ontario Oral Health Alliance. The alliance is an umbrella organization formed in 2007 to unite the voices of those in Ontario who lobby and advocate for better access to oral health. In this area, members of the Tri-County Dental Coalition encouraged area residents to sign the postcards, which are addressed to their local Member of Provincial Parliament, at participating locations across the community. The campaignâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s postcard features photos of Âżve â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;realâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Ontarians with severe dental problems smiling through gritted teeth. A caption below the pictures reads: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Why am I living with pain and infection?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; On the back of the postcard, the Oral Health Alliance notes that thousands of Ontario adults suffer with pain and infection from poor oral health because they cannot afford to get dental treatment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is no Âżnancial support for adults with severe dental pain and infection, meaning people suffer in silence, or are forced to go to hospital emergency departments which are often unable to treat the problem,â&#x20AC;? says Anna Rusak, Ontario Oral Health Alliance representative. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This glaring omission needs to be Âżxed, especially when we know oral health

Where Quality Meets Affordability

Presentations –Message of Hope – in high demand EMC Lifestyle - With the fall school season well underway, the Carleton Place Drug Strategy Committee is proud to once again partner with committee member Nicole Pearson to help her deliver her ‘Mother’s Message of Hope’ presentations to local schools. In these events, Nicole along with other stakeholders such as local police services, health units, and mental health specialists provide information on the risks of drug and substance abuse and misuse along with open discussions on suicide and how to help someone who may be at risk. Students are given resource cards that list all the agencies and related healthcare service providers in the region with contact info and phone numbers so that when help is needed, they won’t have to look far or long. With concerns from parents, students, and school of¿cials about drug abuse and suicide, Nicole’s presentations are in high demand, mainly because of her straight-forward approach when speaking with students, not down to them,

and because of her own personal history as she lost her son Brett to suicide six years ago. Nicole, a dedicated member of Canada’s public service, donates her own time to prepare and give these presentations as well as work tirelessly with the Carleton Place Drug Strategy Committee and numerous community partners to keep the need for mental health and addictions support on the front burner. She recently assisted Open Doors for Lanark Children and Youth to complete a working paper on best practices for these presentations, which will be circulated to schools shortly. This year due to the work of the drug strategy committee and Nicole a generous grant from Green Shield Canada’s Community Giving Program was received. These funds will be used to provide information seminars and presentations to schools as well as any interested private or community group, of any size. If anyone is interested in learning more about these projects, they can

simply log onto the committee website at A link is available to communicate by email. One of the newest challenges facing area residents of all age groups is the release of the powerful and addictive painkiller, Oxycontin in its generic form. This synthetic opiate based drug was considered so harmful in terms of addiction; its manufacturer voluntarily pulled it from pharmacies earlier this year and replaced it with a version that couldn’t be transformed into an injectable form. The federal government recently announced they would not prevent the release of the generic version of this drug in opposition to several provincial health ministries, as well as countless addiction specialists from coast to coast. As volunteers working to improve the health of our community, we of the drug strategy committee urge everyone to contact their MP to voice their opinion on this serious matter. Yours in service Brian Turner

Are you at risk for Type 2 diabetes?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;you have high blood sugarâ&#x20AC;?, this may mean you have either prediabetes or diabetes. Be sure to ask your doctor about the results. If you are diagnosed with prediabetes, this means you are at greater risk for developing type 2 diabetes. But you may be able to reduce your risk through the following: â&#x20AC;˘ There are some medications that when started early can reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes

by 30 per cent. Ask your doctor if these are right for you. â&#x20AC;˘ Lifestyle changes that result in a loss of approximately Âżve per cent of initial body weight can reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by almost 60 per cent. â&#x20AC;˘ When planning lifestyle changes, start with small steps. Use the support that exists within your community. Rideau Valley Diabetes Services would be pleased

to help you in your efforts. We offer sessions guided by diabetes educators to support adults living with prediabetes and diabetes throughout Lanark, Leeds and Grenville counties. We offer individual counseling and group education sessions. You can also join us for label reading in a grocery store tour. Or learn how to make healthy foods taste great at one of our cooking classes! Our conference will be held March 23, 2013â&#x20AC;Ś us for in-

Finishing up his statement he emphasized how important choices were in life - he chose

Standing ovation Her presentation brought about a standing ovation from all of those in attendance, followed by a question and answer period from the students. Questions ranged from her children to family friends. Hutchison explained the twins are now turning 20 and “have both had very different experiences.” Sam had no desire to meet Ryan, while Emma self facilitated a meeting with Ryan when she was 13 years old. Another student asked why the neighbours beside the home where the party occurred, hadn’t called 9-1-1? Hutchison noted the young man who was hosting the party had had a bad reputation and the neighbours were in fact afraid of him. Students asked how she was able to forgive and she noted, “I did for Ryan what I would hope someone would do for my child,” but ¿nished that thought by emphasizing “forgiveness needs to be revisited, it is not a one-off.” “It was the only way I would get my voice back (through forgiveness),” she said. The other men who attended the party to check on the home along with Bob, she explained, both suffer from clinical depression now. “When things break and you put them back together there’s still fracture lines.” If she could go back and change what happened that New Year’s Eve, one student asked, would she? She answered yes, she would go back if she could. After the death of her husband, she said the trauma ramped up her emotions. She’d dealt with earlier traumas in life – her dad developing cancer when she was 16 and as a way to cope her mother became an alcoholic and would be one for 30 years.


She had “looked at other constructive ways to deal with my sorrow (other than alcohol).” She still ¿nds she has triggers however, for sadness - the ¿rst snowfall of the season and the smell of snow. Throughout the course of time, Hutchison’s story has been turned into a made-forTV movie by Lifetime and a documentary was made by CBC. The CBC documentary she was not pleased with and felt it “retraumatized” her. Having been in more than 500 high school auditoriums throughout Canada, the United States, Australia and other countries, Hutchison felt very welcomed by those at NDCHS that day. The Lanark County Community Justice Program organized this event. Hutchison ¿rst discovered an organization called Community Justice Initiatives during Aldridge’s sentencing. The program was able to organize a “victimoffender reconciliation.” The local program, according to a LCCJP brochure explained, it is a restorative justice initiative, that is a “positive way to repair the harm resulting from crime.” By involving the community in making those needed repairs, “People directly affected by an incident, and their supporters come together in a community justice forum” allowing for discussion of what took place, listening to what others have to say and ¿nding a way to make things right. If the forum session is then a success, what results from that is a written agreement signed by all present. The agreement is actually a legally binding document for the accused. Those involved in the forum, all have a say about the agreement’s contents. Those in attendance work together to reach “consensus on actions that are reasonable, respectful and meaningful ways to repair the harm.” If the accused fails to abide by the agreement, their case may be referred back to the police or the Crown Attorney’s of¿ce. The presentation was in celebration of Restorative Justice Week 2012, marked across Canada Nov. 18 to 25. Students from various area schools were in attendance

for the event Nov. 16. Brian Peters, member of the LCCJP board who opened the day’s presentation, explained that through restorative justice, “when it’s over, it’s over and people are able to move on.” Saying it is an alternative view of justice, it helps in strengthening and building relationships and in the healing and closure process.

to keep his emotions hidden, he chose to do drugs and alcohol. Hutchison noted to forgive Aldridge she had to completely open her heart, but in forgiveness she found power. “My forgiveness set me free,” she described.


which one to disappoint, he described. “I bottled up all my emotions and tried to tough it out,” he observed. When he moved into his teen years, he found he was easily inÀuenced by other teens and their lifestyles, and was afforded an opportunity to let his anger out - through drugs, parties and trouble with the law. Then a good friend died in a drinking and driving incident and once again he was thrown into a cycle of anger, not knowing how to deal with his emotions. When New Year’s Eve 1997 rolled around, he was still so full of fury when he and his friends showed up to that ill-fated party. Drinking early on in the evening, those at the house called all the people they knew, inviting one and all to come and party. People showed up in waves, drinking and passing out early in the night. He described Bob’s arrival, as a stranger coming into the home and telling everyone to disperse, “no one liked it. They were taking away our fun.” His anger manifested itself as he kicked Bob’s head. It was an opportunity to show his friends what he was capable of and to gain respect, he said. He went back downstairs, pretending nothing had happened. Ten minutes later the police and ambulance arrived, and because of his previous trouble with the law, and not liking the cops, he and his friends left to ¿nd another party. He kept this a secret, just like the many he kept inside before. “What was one more?” he calmly said. The next four-and-a-half years he found himself depressed, having suicidal thoughts, and isolated himself from his friends and family. Those feelings of anger were still there, however. “It (rage) was controlling my life at the time, but I ignored it.”

Support your local snowmobile club by purchasing your 2013 trail permit EMC Lifestyle - The Beautiful Eastern Association of Snowmobile Trails (BEAST) is a proud member of the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC). The BEAST is a volunteer led not-for-proÂżt association, with through strong leadership, provides a wide range of quality programs and services to, and on behalf of, its members. The local trail network connects communities as far south as Richmond and Smiths Falls and as far north as Almonte bordering Lanark, Stittsville and Kanata. The local trail network contributes and interconnects with the provincial network of organized snowmobile trails connecting Ontario communities and providing responsible riding experiences that are safe, enjoyable and environmentally sustainable. The majority of the snowmobile trails within the local trail network are on private property graciously allowed by numerous landowners. In a number of instances the trails cross sensitive parcels of property and by deviating from the maintained trail base you may cause irreversible damage to the landowners property and jeopardize the entire trail system. Please stay on the trail.

The Beautiful Eastern Association of Snowmobile Trails (BEAST) is a proud member of the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC). Purchasing your trail permit now generates critical income to cover the initial fall start up costs for the club and allows the club to budget accordingly for the rest of the season. It takes countless volunteer hours to negotiate land access, clear brush, cut down interfering limbs, and smooth out the base of the trail. Volunteers must also build bridges over creeks, rivers and low spots, and that takes a lot of work and money. This is all com-

pleted by volunteers who are true ambassadors of the sport. Without the donated land and hidden heroes, the annual cost for a trail permit would escalate to an unsustainable value, signiÂżcantly higher than it is now. While the past two winterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in a common-law relationship, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s becoming more â&#x20AC;&#x153;commonâ&#x20AC;?. The latest Census Âżgures show that the number of Canadian common-law couples rose 13.9% between 2006 and 2011 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about 4 ½ times the rate of growth for married couples (at 3.1%)1. Your professional advisor can tell you the speciÂżc Âżnancial issues relating to common-law relationships. Here are 10 to consider:


Are you new to the neighbourhood? Had a baby? Planning a wedding?

2. If you meet the test for being considered a commonlaw couple under the Income Tax Act (Canada), be sure to Âżle your income tax returns as a couple. Filing as individual could result in consequences related to Âżling a false return, and could also potentially result in the loss of various federal beneÂżts, including the CPP survivor beneÂżt. 3. The law in many provinces does not give common-law couples the same rights as married couples. For example, in Alberta, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, QuĂŠbec and the Yukon,


terested are asked to purchase their annual season trail permit from the club where you do the majority of your riding, so that your permit money is put towards the maintenance of the trails you ride. â&#x20AC;˘ Volunteer! In a recent survey of non-volunteering snowmobilers, 39 per cent of respondents indicated they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have enough time to commit time throughout the whole year. According to the 2002 Canadian Census, 75 per cent of the people who volunteer do so only a few hours (under 20) each year. If this sounds like you, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s acceptable as even only a few hours would be a big help. Please contact your local club if you can help out. Visit the website at www. for local permit vendors and other exciting news, videoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and club events. Submitted by Andrew MacHardy, BEAST communications coordinator.

Common-law couples â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 10 ďŹ nancial factors you need to know

1. According to the federal Income Tax Act, a couple is considered to be in a commonlaw relationship if they have lived together in a conjugal relationship for a period of twelve months or have lived together for a shorter time but are raising a child together. For income tax purposes, they are treated the same as a married couple.

low normal snowfall, your local club volunteers have been working hard to sustain the existing land use agreements, re-routing trails as necessary and grooming trails as soon as snow and ice conditions permit all the while expending standard operating costs such as insurance to maintain the trail network on a reduced number of permits purchased. How you can help: â&#x20AC;˘ Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait, buy your annual permit now! Purchasing your permit now generates critical income to cover the initial fall start up costs for the club and allows the club to budget accordingly for the rest of the season. As an added incentive, if you purchase your annual trail permit on or before Dec. 1, you can save $50 off the annual seasonal permit ($260) as well as receive many free, year-round OFSC member beneÂżts, which can save you more than enough money to pay for your permit.

common-law partners whose relationship breaks down do not have any statutory right to a division of property, no matter how long they have lived together.

4. You and your common-law partner should discuss how you will reconcile your individual Âżnancial objectives, resources and obligations should your relationship come to an end. Consider writing down your intentions regarding a potential division of assets in a cohabitation agreement. Attach your agreement to a list of each partnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assets and personal effects. 5. Discuss how much you expect to spend, save and invest and who will manage your shared Âżnances, including paying the bills and splitting household expenditures. 6. Make sure you each have a valid will that reĂ&#x20AC;ects your rights to property division in your province of residence. Given the frequency of changes in the law in this area, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crucial that you speak to your legal and Âżnancial advisors regularly and update as required. 7. Review and revise as necessary the beneÂżciaries for your life insurance policies and registered investment plans. 8. Designate a power of attorney to act for you should you become mentally incompetent.

9. If you have children from a previous relationship, be sure that they are included in your estate plan. Leaving everything to your new spouse through direct beneÂżciary designations could inadvertently disinherit your children. You should speak to your legal and Âżnancial advisors to ensure your children are covered. 10. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;commonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mistake of solving all your Âżnancial complexities on your own. Professional Âżnancial and legal advisors can also be your effective partner in achieving all your life goals. 1

The Food for Thought Cookbook – helping feed our future EMC Lifestyle - Did you know that 31 per cent of elementary school children and 62 per cent of secondary students in Canada don’t eat breakfast daily - this includes many children and youth right here in Lanark County. The link between good nutrition and learning is well known. Children and youth who begin the day well nourished are ready to learn and do better in

school. For more than 10 years, the Lanark County Food For Thought Partnership has provided support to our community schools that run nutritious breakfast, snack and lunch programs. In 2012, we achieved the milestone of two million meals and snacks served since our inception in 2001. As a celebration of over 10 years of supporting chil-

dren and youth in our community, we have produced a local Food for Thought Cookbook. This attractive and practical cookbook is ¿lled with more than 400 delicious recipes submitted by students, volunteers, teachers, parents, and many others involved in the Food For Thought effort. It features lively artwork drawn by area students – chances are you’ll recognize the names

Parks Canada urges caution around Rideau Canal EMC News – As you and your family enjoy outdoor activities this winter, Parks Canada encourages you to be conscious of the hazards of freezing water and snow covered areas and would like to remind you to always exercise caution in and around canal structures and channels, especially downstream of dams and areas of running water.

With the Rideau Canal and its lockstations closed for the winter, staff is not on site to clear and salt paths or other open areas. Although some sections of the canal have been drained substantially for the off-season, stretches of deep water still exist, and ice thickness can be deceptive. Parents are asked to always be vigilant with their children

near the water. We hope everyone who visited the Rideau Canal this past season had a wonderful experience; our staff is looking forward to serving you again in 2013 as Parks Canada is already preparing for the 181st consecutive season of canal operations. Submitted by Parks Canada.

of some of the contributors and at a modest price of $15 the Food For Thought Cookbook is a great value and makes a perfect holiday gift! The Food For Thought program operates on funds generated through school and community fundraising events such as Empty Bowls and our Food For Thought Cookbook sales. Additional support is received through donations

from generous individuals and local businesses, and grants from the County of Lanark, Breakfast Clubs of Canada, Breakfast for Learning and Ontario’s Ministry of Children and Youth Services. School nutrition programs help us ¿ll the hunger gap and strengthen the future of our community. You can help us feed our children and youth by purchasing a Food For Thought

Time travels in a Ford Lab; Car Counselor takes trip to Michigan

Car Counselor BRIAN TURNER

rior vehicle construction before a prototype is ever built. The Human Machine Interface lab involved work on touchscreen controls, new instrument cluster designs and voice activation systems. While Ford has taken some hits lately regarding its ‘My Touch’ display/control system, recent upgrades to existing vehicles have ironed out many of the bugs, and from the demonstration we witnessed on voice activation, the complaints about delays between voice requests and function executions will soon be history. Our host at this lab, James Rankin, mentioned that some people just can’t be heard correctly by even the best voice activation system due to their accents, speaking clarity, or intonations just like some spouses have a hard time getting their commands understood by their partners. My advice here, is if you’re considering buying a vehicle with this option, try it out during a demo test drive to make sure you and your car are on speaking terms. One of the most interesting labs we toured was the Bio lab headed by a very enthusiastic and committed Dr. Deborah Mielewski. Her team was chal-

lenged with the unique task of reducing the amount of petroleum used in the approximately 300 lbs of plastic and fabric that goes into the average vehicle. They have had great success in using soybean and corn oil as well as waste paper, textile clippings, wheat straw, and even wood ¿bres in the construction of interior panels and parts, seat foam pads and covers, and Àoor carpeting. Henry Ford, who used a lot of wood in the construction of his Model T’s and A’s would have been proud. As

many of the bio-materials they experiment with are normally destined for land¿ll as waste byproducts of other industries, the bene¿t to the environment is multi-faceted: reducing petroleum use, improving the carbon footprint, and shrinking the amount of waste going to land¿lls. To prove, even lab scientists have a sense of humour, Deborah’s team recently experimented with shredded used U.S. paper currency as a building material. As the U.S. mint uses a lot of cotton and linen ¿bre in their manufacturing process, the Ford Bio lab thought it might make a great raw material. They were right, and the prototype automotive component they created with this old money was a coin tray. Henry Ford always stressed

the bene¿ts of a good working relationship between agriculture and his company. After all, Ford was a major supplier of farm equipment to the U.S. and Canada, and Henry knew the value of his farming customers. The Bio lab keeps up this tradition and their work with soybean oil. They’ve attracted funding from a U.S. soybean farming association as well as expert advice on how to optimize their uses of this plant. For the critics that might be concerned about using food crops for non-food uses thereby driving up the cost of groceries, Deborah reminded us that they use a relatively small amount compared to the ethanol fuel industry and their products don’t end up as tailpipe emissions but as lasting hard products. Her team has gone one step further

and done what many industry leaders said was impossible, created a process to recycle seat and headrest foam eliminating another risk to our environment. If you have any questions, opinions, or stories on anything automotive please drop me a line, [By email to emc@ or directly to listing ‘Question for the Car Counselor’ on the subject line or by post to Record News Communications, 5 Lorne St., P.O. Box 158, Smiths Falls, Ont. K7A 4T1]. When using regular mail, please supply a phone number if you seek direct contact (due to volume I can’t always promise replies). Yours in service, Brian Turner

EMC Lifestyle – In the interests of front-end disclosure, I (with other members of the Canadian auto media) recently attended a press tour of Ford’s Research and Advanced Engineering Centre in Dearborn, Michigan. Ford paid for our airfare, hotel, and meals during the one evening and half-day event. Ford isn’t alone in their continuing efforts to improve the safety, reliability, ef¿ciency, and function of their products and only time and sales will tell if they do their jobs better than the competition. At the beginning of our tour we met with Ford’s chief product analyst, Dr. Bob Santer, who reminded us that when we entered the sprawling complex we actually travelled ¿ve years in the future as the products and improvements they were currently working on wouldn’t hit the streets until the 2017 model year. We got behind the scenes tours of several different labs from Light Weighting (research into new body panel materials and construction) to the Human Occupancy Package Simulator which measures and rates the ease or dif¿culty drivers would experience getting in and out of a new vehicle design or reaching controls and switches. This lab was taking full advantage of new technologies in motion tracking video systems and computer aided design to rate any changes in body and inte-

The Once helps get back to Remembrance Day EMC Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Remembrance Day has always been a day I make sure to be at a cenotaph somewhere, wherever I happen to be. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s balmy weather on the day brought out even more people to the already usually very well attended Cenotaph in front of Perthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Great War Memorial Hospital. As I gazed around the crowd, I was so pleased to see so many age groups. From the Veterans remembering the joys and horrors of their enlisted days, many supported by their extended families, even to babes in arms, the recently returned military personnel of which many appeared to these ageing eyes far too young and then the rest of us all taking the time to remember, each for our own reasons. Just turn on the worlds often turmoiled news and you realize so many reasons to give thanks to all who gave their lives to allow us the freedoms we too often take for granted. When I think of these freedoms, freedom of expression is one of the most revered in my mind. Music being the universal language, this great land of ours having a bountiful variety of talented singer/ songwriters, it makes me

Musical Musings STEVE TENNANT

so thankful to live in such a magical place where so many offer their stories and thoughts via the medium of music. We all have our favourites with so much to choose from. One of my favourites this year is a Newfoundland based trio called The Once. It somehow seemed Âżtting to be attending a show by them on Remembrance Day. Their often tragic true storybased songs shed light on â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Rockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;? nautical life and all it touches, and, getting back to Remembrance Day, maybe that â&#x20AC;&#x153;all it touchesâ&#x20AC;? part is also what we tend to forget about war .... how itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just those who lose their lives or are injured, but also how it affects their families, friends, communities, co-workers, neighbours. It affects us all. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m almost afraid to write and share this because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure it will make tickets all that harder to get but it deserves my fessing up to continually enjoying the wonderful dinner shows

going on at The Sharbot Lake Country Inn. Sandra and Frank White and their family renovated this business a couple of years ago, creating a lovely, warm, welcoming dining room/ pub with guest rooms attached, many with a wonderful scenic view overlooking the lake. Get on their email list and take in a dinner and show and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see why it was here I again looked forward to enjoying The Once. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d Âżrst heard them on CBC 2 Radio last year and then started picking up a positive buzz about them in newspaper articles and folk music periodicals. I Âżnally Âżrst heard them live a year ago at the Ontario Council of Folk Festival Conference where they did a showcase and won me over by the end of their Âżrst song. I was able to catch a song here and there as they performed in smaller spaces that weekend and each time they impressed me more. Their positive energy, professional yet

comforting style make you feel immediately at home, sitting and being warmed by the Âżre. They keep it simple by letting their vocal harmonies and acoustic instrumentation do the work for them.... and the stories. From the tales of Âżshing villages, family vignettes, humorous incidents, loves lost or traditional lore they harken a room to silence and listen ... wanting for every word. Geraldine Hollett is lead with a strong vocal presentation as wholesome as motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s milk, her smile alone lighting up any room. Add Phil Churchill and Andrew Daleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s harmonies and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a concoction as comforting as Lanark Maple Syrup. The guys add tasty yet uncomplicated accompaniments with guitar, banjo, mandolin and bazouki. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not afraid to sing a cappella for greater effect, the intimacy created like snugglinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; into Ă&#x20AC;annel. I caught them before at the Country Inn in the Spring, Stewart Park Festival this Summer and couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait for this multiple award winning trio to work their magic again, back at the Inn. Add a tasty meal, fellowship of a full room of like-minded music lovers from all over

and The Once proved again why I keep coming back for more. Their obvious yet humble dedication to their craft shows like a proud baker standing smiling behind a counter full of oven fresh wares. They have made their own music of Newfoundland, beyond the jigs and reels. They promote and educate through their stories of local legends like Ron Hynes, Âżd-

dler Emile Benoit and poets Al Pittman and George Murray. They leave you spellbound, wanting for more. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so nice to have my hunger for both good food and wonderfully live music satisÂżed, all in one place. Thanks Sandra and Frank ..... Support live music everywhere.

Community reaches out to shelter in time of need EMC Lifestyle – Recently, the Lanark Animal Welfare Society reached out to the community to help us as we faced several challenges, and struggled to keep our shelter operating. Facing a dire ¿nancial situation and overcrowding, we turned to all of you to help continue our mission to provide shelter and care for animals in need. We wish to extend our heartfelt thanks to all who have responded! Your gracious generosity has allowed LAWS to continue their work towards a sustainable organization to meet the needs of animals in our county, and we will continue our devotion to creating a viable and caring environment for the animals in our care.

Crime Stoppers Christmas Social back and better than ever in 2012

EMC Events – A few years’ hiatus for ‘A Christmas Social’ 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 – 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 year’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. “Everyone who attended our last Christmas Social raved they had a wonder-

ful time. The board wanted to bring back what was a fun evening,” Evoy noted. “Taking a break from the social for a few years has allowed us to plan an even bigger and better event.” The event is really two pronged for the association, the ¿rst goal of course to raise funds; the second goal is to raise awareness. “The whole idea is to have a social, casual get together,” Evoy emphasized. “It is just a fun evening. You can meet people and see what’s going on around town, and see the museum. All while raising funds for an important cause.” Crime Stoppers receives no funding period, funding comes from fundraisers and the sale of Nevada tickets. Monthly costs include $200-$300 for the 1-800 phone line coupled with the answering service expenses. The service offers anyone with information to a local crime a way to provide it to the police without being identi¿ed. 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 ¿nd ways to support the ongoing operational costs of the system. The Crime Stoppers service operates entirely through donations. For tickets, contact any Smiths Falls and District Crime Stoppers board member or call Evoy at 613-2832444, tickets can also be purchased at Impression Printing, Smiths Falls or at the Smiths Falls Chamber of Commerce of¿ce. 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 nonpro¿t 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 display. Calls are answered 24 hours a day. When calling in the caller is given a code number with which they will identify themselves in any future calls. Those providing tips are given a date to call Crime Stoppers back. They will be updated on the status of the investigation, perhaps asked for more information, or if the tip has resulted in an arrest, or recovery of property or drugs, the caller will be guided through the procedure of collecting their reward.

UCDSB earns Canada Award of Excellence Board had to demonstrate there was a sound systematic approach to a healthy workplace with good results being achieved in key areas. Among the reasons an Excellence Canada veri¿cation team recommended the board for certi¿cation were that: Senior leadership has transformed the UCDSB, embedding a culture of wellness that goes far beyond programs. Their goal is to build a kind, generous work environment. As a result, staff describes leadership as “a genuine face of warmth and kindness.” A highly developed and well understood Strategic Plan – CREW – embeds and supports wellness. Everyone understands how their work contributes to the 90 per cent graduation rate goal. Programs have a synergizing focus (doing it together; responding with unconditional support to a need; studentbased decision making). The board demonstrated that its programs are not just “one-time events” but help make concrete progress to ensuring sustained success. The award was of¿cially presented to the board during a ceremony on Nov. 14, in Brockville. Submitted by the Upper Canada District School Board.

Geoheritage Park receives rescue rocks By NEIL CARLETON

Photo courtesy Neil Carleton

Marten Doornekamp, Cavanagh Construction, supervised as the sandstone blocks were lowered in place on Nov. 2 at Metcalfe Geoheritage Park in Almonte. treatment plant at the west end of town. Outcrops of this bedrock, known geologically as the Nepean Formation, are exposed along both sides, and within the median, of the Queensway in Kanata where construction continues for the widening of the highway. The unique characteristics of the outcrop immediately east of Terry Fox Drive led to a provincial designation in 1970 as an Area of Natural and Scienti¿c Interest (ANSI). When work started on the Queensway in the summer

of 2008, it was identi¿ed that the outcrops within the median at the Terry Fox ANSI site would be destroyed when the two new highway lanes were added. A georescue operation was deemed feasible, and approval was granted to remove up to 10 large blocks by jackhammer and pry bars, rather than blasting the rock. Carleton University, Ottawa University, the Perth Museum, the Eganville Museum, and the Town of Mississippi Mills each requested one or two blocks for display.

As the truck made its way through Almonte on that day, drivers and pedestrians likely thought the load was landscape rocks destined for a nearby construction site. In the morning, two large blocks had been delivered to the Perth R0011687559_1018

EMC Lifestyle - How many people does it take to deliver two and a half tons of sandstone to Canada’s ¿rst municipal geoheritage park? The crane operator made it look easy when he set down two large specimens recently at Metcalfe Geoheritage Park in Almonte. Before their arrival on Friday, Nov. 2, it was a team effort to identify signi¿cant sections of a median outcrop on Highway 417 in Kanata, move them away from the construction zone, then load, transport, and deliver the specimens to Almonte. This was a remarkable georescue operation spearheaded by Dr. Al Donaldson, Professor Emeritus, Carleton University, and founder of Friends of Canadian Geoheritage. The other key players who contributed to the success of this unique project were Ewa Bednarczuk, Ontario Ministry of the Environment; Marten Doornekamp, Cavanagh Construction; Jason Duff, Duff Boom Truck Service; Chad Kean, McIntosh Perry Consulting; Phil Kor, Ontario Parks; and Stan Skeggs, McIntosh Perry Consulting. In Almonte, a large quantity of white-to-tan sandstone was excavated for the construction of the new sewage

Visiting Metcalfe Geoheritage Park to read the rocks will take you on a journey far back in time to towering mountains, colliding and splitting continents, ocean depths, and a landscape locked in ice.

Museum. This was the second delivery of the day, with two specimens for Metcalfe Geoheritage Park. The other two large samples onboard were scheduled for delivery to the Eganville Museum on the following day.

During the past year, the park property by the new Brian J. Gallagher Generating Station in Almonte has been under construction with sewer work. This includes the display site of the geological specimens. The large rocks were temporarily moved aside, and plans are underway for their relocation farther west from within the semi-circle roadway. This initiative will be part of the development plan for the overall park property by the Mississippi River Power Corp. It’s hoped the new design for Metcalfe Geoheritage Park will be completed in the upcoming year. Featured in the rearranged layout will be familiar and new samples that tell the remarkable story of our area’s geoheritage.

Pastas, cooked dishes, quiches, omelets, gratins, sandwiches and salads couldn’t survive by without them! At any meal, these cheeses add taste and nutritional value. Gratins are often laden with heavy cream and butter, and cheese. This lightened version is just as delicious and wonderfully comforting. To serve with roast meats or poultry, omit the ham.

New chapter written in Brown-Richthofen saga Reflections BY JEFF MAGUIRE

cally Canadian that we don’t honour our heroes and their exploits are usually left out of text books and school history lessons. I refer to Brown as a hero. That’s not because of his meeting with Richthofen on April 21, 1918. The fact he is credited with ¿ring the shot that killed the highest scoring ace of World War I (the Baron had 80 “kills” to his credit) didn’t make Brown a hero. In fact no one was unhappier with the outcome of the engagement than Roy Brown. To me he’s a hero because he was willing to put his life on the line Àying a rickety biplane into battle and he did so with great skill and courage. As a squadron leader he achieved the enviable record of never losing one of his own pilots, something that was virtually unheard of in the early days of aerial combat. Last week’s lunch was a prelude to a very special and poignant event held on the afternoon of Tuesday, Nov. 13. A 40 foot by 40 foot mural of the famous Brown-Richthofen aerial combat was of¿cially dedicated in downtown Carleton Place. The mural, by Ottawa artist Shawn McInnis, is

outstanding! I’m a proud founding member of the Roy Brown Society, the organization behind the mural and the new aviation museum featuring the stories of Brown and 14 other Great War pilots from Carleton Place. The ¿rst museum displays were unveiled in historic Moore House (which will be the ¿rst home of the artifacts) following last Tuesday’s well attended dedication ceremony. The fact 15 young men from such a small community were part of the Àedgling Allied air force in World War I is believed to be unprecedented, certainly in Canadian history at least. At the time Carleton Place had less than half its current population. At the head of that group was Brown, the reluctant “winner” of the 1918 dog¿ght with Baron von Richthofen. Brown died in 1944 at the tender age of 50, partly as a result of injuries sustained in a near fatal plane crash in England in July 1918. Now, 68 years after his passing, the mural and museum have thrust his name into the headlines again. As some of you will know, the mural has resulted in national and international publicity. The BrownRichthofen duel has once again come to life! I was privileged to know Brown’s youngest brother Howard who, incidentally, was the unof¿cial Carleton Place historian. Howard authored the

book ‘Founded Upon A Rock’, the history of Carleton Place. It was released in conjunction with the 150th anniversary of the town in 1969. Howard died in 1999 at the ripe old age of 96. The closest relative in attendance at the lunch and mural dedication last week was Howard’s daughter Carol Nicholson, Roy’s niece. Carol and her husband John live in Oakville but still own and regularly visit the family cottage ‘Orkney’ at Lake Park on Mississippi Lake. Their daughter Heather Harpell of Ottawa also attended the luncheon. At the mural dedication she was joined by her husband Eric and their baby son Trevor. The other Brown relative in attendance at both special events was Mary Baxter, along with her husband Don of Ottawa. Mary’s grandfather Dr. Clarence Brown was Roy’s uncle. I have known the Nicholson’s for many years. It was wonderful to share some time with them again and to meet their daughter, her husband and child. I have to admit it was intriguing to meet Daniel von Richthofen, a distant relative of the Baron. Although he is very interested in his late ancestor’s exploits, he downplays the connection. Manfred of course was a young man when he died. He never married or had a family of his own. Despite the distant relation-

ship I was amazed to hear that Daniel’s late grandmother knew Manfred. They both attended family gatherings in Germany. Daniel was born in Frankfurt and immigrated to Canada at age 10. He’s now retired following a 35 year career with Transport Canada. He attended the events last week because of a chance meeting with Bill Flint from our committee at the Smiths Falls Flying Club in June. Also in attendance at the luncheon was Tim Boyd of Perth whose uncle was Richthofen’s 41st victim on April 13, 1917. The lunch was a thoroughly engaging event. For me it offered an incredible once-in-alifetime opportunity to meet and talk with so many people connected to this famous First World War story. You may have noticed I don’t refer to Manfred von Richthofen as “The Red Baron” very often? That’s because the nickname was not used during his lifetime. It was coined by an American pulp ¿ction writer in the 1930s. The nickname led to off the wall connections such as famed cartoonist Charles Schulz’s character Snoopy and his “clashes” with the Red Baron, along with two related, hit songs by a Florida band, the Royal Guardsman. Do you remember ‘Snoopy Versus the Red Baron’? The songs by the way were news to Roy Brown’s great-niece Heather Harpell who is too young to remember.

Over the years, as well as in media reports related to last week’s events, there has been criticism leveled that Carleton Place failed to honour Roy Brown properly in the past. His last surviving child Margaret Harmon, who died in September at age 90, told me her father spent the rest of his short life trying to avoid any connection to the fateful clash with the Baron. She once told me “he worked hard at avoiding publicity.” That aside, the recognition of Roy Brown’s exploits and the derring-do of so many other young men from Carleton Place during World War I deserve a proper place in local history. Much credit belongs to the town’s late Mayor Brian Costello, author of the 1979 book ‘A Nursery of the Air Force’, who ¿rst envisioned a museum and advocated for it all of his adult life. Brian was a founding member of the Roy Brown Society. Congratulations to Councillor Rob Probert, the president of the society, all of the other committee members as well as town council and municipal staff for all of their support. The mural and museum are ¿tting tributes to Roy Brown and the aerial pioneers from Carleton Place. If you have any comments or questions for Jeff Maguire he can be reached by e-mail at:

We hope to see you there!


EMC Lifestyle - I had a rare honour last week when I joined 15 others for a very special lunch in Carleton Place. Our small group included descendants of the main players in arguably the most famous aerial combat in history. I’m a student of the world wars and when my wife and I and our infant son ¿rst arrived in Carleton Place more than 36 years ago I was keenly aware we were now living in the hometown of Arthur Roy Brown. Or more correctly Captain A. Roy Brown DSC! The historic plaque in Memorial Park, near the local Cenotaph, underlines the fact. His name isn’t nearly as familiar as it should be in his native land. When I mention the name Roy Brown to someone and they look quizzical, I quickly add that it was he who shot down German ace Baron Manfred von Richthofen during World War I. It is the rare person who has never heard of him. Richthofen remains world famous and he is most often called “The Red Baron.” Attending last week’s lunch were three members of the Brown family and a Canadian relative of von Richthofen who lives in the Kemptville area. To my knowledge the occasion marked the ¿rst time descendants of the two Àyers have ever met, let alone shared a meal and conversation! Brown’s accomplishments remain little known. How typi-

Claytones combine heart and harmony in original music By DAVID JOHNSTON

EMC Entertainment - When you listen to The Claytones, the ¿rst thing that stands out is harmony. But it’s not just the well-tuned voices that blend into a homogonous sound, it’s the character of the band. It’s not surprising that the three talented singers and musicians have combined to produce some of the most palatable and warm music of recent years. They are steeped in music, and though still in their formative stages as a band, each has a signi¿cant musical background. The Claytones is Kelly Prescott, Adam Puddington and Anders Drerup. Each member had already established a musical career by the time they started playing together as a band a couple of years ago. In fact, collectively they have released eight full-length recordings of original music under the names of Kelly Prescott, Prescott, Anders Drerup, The Van Meters and Adam Puddington. But those projects were put on the back burner last year when they found the magic of making music together. The Ottawa Valley trio has just released their ¿rst record to a welcoming audience of fans from coast to coast. Their harmonies are clear and melodic, backed by strong musicianship and solid songwriting. The result is a record that will stand the test of time.

Titled Lake In The Night, the songs are almost entirely written collectively by the band, which took its name from its home in Clayton, Ontario. “We found that we share similar musical tastes,” said Kelly Prescott. “It was just natural that we would write and record together.” Probably the most dif¿cult part of describing the band is to de¿ne their sound. As their promotional material indicates, the Claytones are “born in the heart of the Ottawa valley, masterfully spinning their melodic, vocal driven, Canadiana brand of country soaked roots music with old school sensibilities.” From the opening strains of Anders Drerup’s steel guitar, the album wanders easily through ballads and up-tempo tunes that bring country to the edge of rock and roll. All strong vocalists, the Claytones collectively exude layered harmony to compliment the wide range of instruments they play. From Kelly Prescott’s acoustic guitar to the accordion and bass played by her husband Adam Puddington, as well as Anders Drerup’s steel guitar, organ and piano, the music is blended to create pleasing, comfortable sounds. Backed by solid contributions from drummer Pat Steward and other members of the Prescott family including Kelly’s brother Kaylen as well as her mom and dad –Randall

The Claytones are Kelly Prescott, Anders Drerup and Adam Puddington. Individually they have been making music for years but only in the past year have they joined together to create their own brand of Canadian country folk roots music. They just released their first album titled “Lake in the Night”. and Tracey— the Claytones have found harmony not only in music but in each other as bandmates. “This is all we want to do,” said Adam. “As soon as we started playing together, we knew we would have to make a record. We took some time to ¿gure out what we’re doing and then we started recording.” The project came to life in the Prescott family studio last winter with the record ready for release in the summer. That

was followed by an extensive list of dates from one side of the country to the other which led to accolades from the music industry and media. The National Post listed them as one of the top ¿ve Canadian Acts to watch in 2012. The Claytones sound is truly the sum of its parts. “We all gave up individual projects to come together as The Claytones. It was a natural transition for all of us,” said Adam.

As full time musicians, the members are all committed to taking their music as far as they can. “You don’t really decide to be a musician,” reÀected Anders. “No matter what you have to go through, it is worth it in the end to play music.” The trio has been a part of the Canadian Paci¿c Holiday Train Tour, traveling across parts of the U.S. and Canada raising money, food and awareness for North American Food Banks. At the age of 19, Kelly was awarded a Gold Record for her work on the CP Holiday Train album. They will soon be embarking on another three week tour on the CP Holiday Train, travelling from Montreal to Moose Jaw with stops in New York State, Pennsylvania, Southern Ontario and North Dakota. In 2009 Anders was cast as the lead role of Gram Parsons in the critically acclaimed theatrical production “Grievous Angel the legend of Gram Parsons” alongside Kelly in the supporting role of Emmylou Harris. Their undeniable chemistry led them to the forming The Claytones. Kelly Prescott is the next generation of two musically renowned family lines, spanning three generations from Northern Ontario, Nova Scotia and the Ottawa Valley. That legacy has motivated her and offered her the unique opportunity to

record her family’s award winning studio. Her ¿rst record with brother Kaylen, “Lakeside Sessions” under the name of “Prescott”, garnered great reviews along with regular airplay on CBC Radio. She released her ¿rst solo project, “I Leave You Dreaming”, in 2011. Billed as a soulful collection that transitions effortlessly from beautiful ballads to high energy blues, the album was declared one of The Ottawa Citizen’s ten best indie albums in 2011. Adam Puddington was raised in Almonte, teaching himself guitar as a youth, drawing on inÀuences ranging from Ray Price, Buck Owens and Charlie Pride to CCR, Neil Young and Lucinda Williams. For 10 years he lived between Nova Scotia and Almonte, immersing himself in the musical traditions of the Ottawa Valley and the East Coast while working extensively with such artists as The Guthries and Matt Mays. Adam released solo roots recordings “For the Meantime” (2005) and “Back in Town” (2008), both of which earned rave reviews from international alt-country media as well as considerable airplay on radio in Canada and abroad. The future looks bright for the Claytones who will be seen on tour across the country in 2013. They are already taking bookings for summer festivals.

Craig continues to bring grittier Bond to the big screen MOVIE: Skyfall STARRING: Daniel Craig, Judy Dench, Ralph Fiennes, and Javier Bardem DIRECTOR: Sam Mendes RATING: PG EMC Entertainment This new era of Bond has been marked by a distinctly grittier, more dramatic feel. This is the realistic Bond or perhaps it’s more accurate to say the more believable Bond. Skyfall is no different as it pits spy against spy in a visceral and desperate ¿ght for survival. As James (Daniel Craig) struggles on top of a train with an enemy spy who’s stolen a hard drive, he’s accidentally shot by one of his own. He falls into a river and is presumed dead. It’s later you see he’s washed up somewhere in the tropics very much alive. He seems content to drink the rest of his life away until he sees the news. Terrorists have hacked into MI6, and then set off an explosion destroying the headquarters. With six agents dead James decides to return. Despite the shape he’s in M (Judy Dench) still puts James in the ¿eld. She needs him to track down the person who stole the

hard drive containing the identities of all their agents. The same person who blew up MI6. The same person who’s revealing those agents’ identities. Bond quickly gets onto the trail of Raoul Silva (Javier Bardem). He has the hard drive, and it soon becomes clear this is about more than exposing secret agents. Silva was a former double O who feels M betrayed him. Silva has set into motion an elaborate plan of revenge, and only James has a hope of stopping him. It’s been 50 years and James Bond is still the man. Skyfall is outstanding. It’s fast paced, it’s dramatic, and above all it’s intelligent. It’s a great spy Àick, and what makes it great is how realistic it seems. In its way Skyfall is no less outrageous than most Bond ¿lms, and yet it has an air of believability. It seems plausible. It seems like it


could happen. There’s no laser watches or exploding pens. It’s just gritty, brutal spy work, and it’s awesome. Daniel Craig is outstanding. His Bond is the assassin who kills for Queen and country. Craig still has that suave cool demeanor that makes James Bond, James Bond, but there’s always this underlying element of danger about him. It’s brilliant. I love Judy Dench. She has rede¿ned the character of M, and I think no one will ever do it quite the way she has. As Gareth Mallory the politician overseeing MI6, Ralph Fiennes is fantastic. You aren’t exactly sure

Tell Someone

where Mallory stands in the beginning. Fiennes plays it very close to the cuff until the shooting starts. Javier Bardem is a great Bond villain. Raoul Silva is creepy and sadistic and absolutely out of his mind. Bardem has created a mod-

ern day evil genius that’s a match for Bond in every way. I love James Bond, I love Daniel Craig as James Bond, and I loved Skyfall. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

Make each battery count Ontarians hoarding and throwing away single-use batteries EMC News - Ontarians are avid recyclers, but according to new research ¿ndings from Stewardship Ontario, proper disposal of batteries isn’t top of mind for many households. In fact, more than a third of Ontarians (35 per cent) say they typically dispose of batteries by throwing them in the garbage or including them in their blue box, where batteries aren’t accepted. And even those who normally do the right thing occasionally toss out a battery, with 33 per cent admitting they’ve thrown out a battery in the garbage in the past year. “It could be that you are hanging on to your batteries because you don’t know what to do with them, or simply putting them in the garbage with regular household waste because you don’t think only one battery matters,” said Paul Gerard, spokesman for Stewardship Ontario, the private not-for-pro¿t company that runs the Orange Drop program. “We want to change bad habits, encourage Ontarians to make battery recycling a positive habit and use our convenient collection network.

Some batteries contain materials that are harmful to our environment if disposed of incorrectly, and it’s everyone’s responsibility to ensure that doesn’t happen.” What’s stopping us? Nearly half (47 per cent) of those who throw batteries in the household trash say they do not know where to bring them, while 39 per cent were unaware batteries should not be thrown out. Interestingly, 23 per cent say they don’t use enough batteries for proper disposal to matter. Based on research, Stewardship Ontario has segmented the population in regard to their battery disposal habits: • The Unaware group is more likely to be under the age of 34. They buy few batteries and are essentially unaware of the proper recycling procedures. This segment is the most likely to throw their batteries into the regular garbage. • Members of Only If It’s Easy (19 per cent of Ontarians) use an above-average number of batteries, and while they are generally aware of the proper procedures for disposal they do

not always follow through due to a perceived lack of convenience. • Where, Why and How Ontarians (15 per cent of the population) support household recycling but are unaware of the proper procedures for disposal of used batteries. Of those who throw their batteries into the regular trash, nearly all (95 per cent) said they would be somewhat likely to change their ways if it was easier for them to recycle. Are you a hoarder? It’s clear that junk drawers across the province are also seeing their fair share of used batteries. The survey reveals that the average household has 15 used batteries that are earmarked for recycling but haven’t made it past the front door yet. Ontarians who correctly take their batteries for disposal are three times as likely to save up a number of batteries and dispose of them all at once, rather than dispose of their batteries as they are replaced. Other survey highlights Nearly half (46 per cent) of respondents said that there should be ¿nes im-

posed for not recycling, or that it should depend on circumstances, such as the type of material, the amount and the frequency of offenses. Households in Ontario on average have 12.6 products or appliances that need batteries. Given that there are 4.8 million households in Ontario, that’s more than 60 million batteries that could be recycled. “It’s clear that batteries are powering all aspects of our lives,” said Gerard. “Ontarians can help turn a negative into a positive by ensuring they are recycling each of their single-use batteries.” Battery myths busted Myth: Someone sorts out batteries and other potentially harmful wastes from my garbage. Fact: Garbage is not sorted - whatever is thrown out goes directly to land¿lls. The correct method is to collect and recycle primary batteries by dropping them off at a collection site. Myth: Once a battery dies, it has no other use. Fact: Used batteries still have life. Properly recycled batteries have valuable resources that can be

National Anti-Bullying Charity BullyingCanada needs public funding EMC News - The nationally registered anti-bullying charitable organization BullyingCanada, is currently facing a dim future without assistance from the public. BullyingCanada currently provides the following national services: • 24/7 telephone support network to youth, parents, educators and the public at large to get information, support and resources on the topic of bullying – at no cost. • A scholarship program for youth who are entering post-secondary who are community leaders when it comes to addressing bullying in their schools.

• School and corporate workshops on bullying and how people can address it in your school and workplace. These workshops generally have a minimal fee unless the school/workplace is unable to raise the money. BullyingCanada works directly with schools and families from across Canada to ensure that support in a bullying situation is provided to any party involved, and often serves as a mediator between the individuals and the media, government, or other third parties. “This isn’t about putting money in our wallets, it’s about getting the funds we need to

save and change the lives of Canada’s youth not only for today but for tomorrow as well,” said Katie Neu, co-executive director and co-founder of BullyingCanada. “Without the ¿nancial support of citizens across Canada we simply will not be able to keep up operations; bills are coming in with no way to pay them. We need the public’s help” said Rob Frenette, co-executive director and co-founder of BullyingCanada. BullyingCanada is currently in its second year of operation as a charity but has been a national organization since its creation by Frenette and Neu in

2006. Last year, the nationally registered charity was able to collect $40,325 in donations. Currently the organization does not have enough of a cash-Àow in order to operate at full capacity for the month of November. BullyingCanada receives no government or United Way funding and only operates on public and corporate donations. For the ¿rst ¿ve years BullyingCanada was entirely volunteer-driven. Just since August of 2012, both executive directors were advised that due to the number of hours that they put in to the organization that they should begin taking a

salary. They currently work at minimum wage, and are the organizations ¿rst paid employees. BullyingCanada provides a very important role in communities across Canada by working directly with parents, youth and schools in ensuring that a bullying situation is addressed quickly by providing that “middle person” contact between the family and school of¿cials. The charity’s 24/7 support line receives nearly 10,000 calls monthly; via web 5,000 youth reach out to the charity for online support monthly. The organization will have to evaluate its current opera-

tions schedule and long-term goals if an inÀux of donations are not received soon. Donors who send a donation in any amount will be mailed a charitable tax receipt, allowing the individual or business to receive a tax credit. For more information on this process please visit Donations can be made online at: www.bullyingcanada. ca, by telephone by calling toll-free: 877-947-3674 or donations can be sent by mail to either the New Brunswick or Ontario of¿ce.

Annual audit report confirms UCDSB is well-managed is an unquali¿ed or “clean” audit report, con¿rming once again that the Upper Canada District School Board is well managed, ¿scally responsible and fully compliant with Ministry of Education requirements,” outlined Trustee David McDonald, Audit Committee Chair.

Communities prepare to fight for hospital funding By DESMOND DEVOY

EMC News – Politicians across Lanark County are lining up behind a motion to support the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital. Lanark County Warden John Gemmell sent out the motion to county council representatives last Friday, Nov. 16. Lanark County council representatives from Lanark Highlands (Mayor Peter McLaren), Drummond/ North Elmsley (Reeve Aubrey Churchill) and Beckwith Township (Deputy Reeve Sharon Mousseau) have indicated their support for the motion to this newspaper. The motion was also sent to representatives from Perth, Tay Valley Township, Smiths Falls and Montague Township. The issue went

before the Tay Valley Township committee-of-the-whole meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 20, after The Record News went to press. The motion is also likely to be discussed at the county council meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 28. “Residents receiving health care services from the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital are concerned about the future of healthcare in Ontario,” read the motion, which has already been circulated at Lanark Highlands Township council before their budget meeting this past Monday. “Current economic realities at all government levels have necessitated a ¿scally prudent method of governing our hospital to ensure that both a balanced budget, in tandem with excellent health care for our citizens remains

a top priority.” The OPSEU (Ontario Public Service Employees Union) and CUPE (Canadian Union of Public Employees) unions, under the umbrella group Ontario Council of Hospital Unions, is launching a campaign to get local citizens to pressure the provincial government to get more money for the hospital to help it eliminate its de¿cit without further cuts. County council members are now joining in a separate call for more money for the hospital. “In order to assist the (hospital)… in its desire of meeting these two health care objectives, we ask the province of Ontario to consider providing special one-time funding to the (hospital) to help fund our community health care debt obligation, in order to provide a clean ¿nancial bill

of health for all residents,” reads the motion. “I think everyone around the table will be in favour,” said Mousseau. “It seems to be a trend. When there are debts it seems that it is essential services that are cut.” She added that her own husband saw ¿rsthand the strain that the Ontario health care system is under while he was being looked after at an Ottawa hospital. Her husband was enrolled in a two-week short-term home care program while he was “barely mobile.” Mousseau hastened to add that in the intensive care unit, “that level was great. But you can see (elsewhere) that they are really strapped.” Following the Monday budget meeting, McLaren recalled how, a year ago, while he was in hospital himself

receiving IV treatments for an infection that, for each of the several nights he was at the local hospital, there was at least one patient who was spending a night in the emergency room because there was simply no room for them elsewhere. Lanark Highlands Coun. Ken Sinclair noted that he himself moved to the area partially because his area of the township was only about 20 minutes away from the Great War Memorial Hospital site in Perth. Shutting down that site would add at least 20 minutes on to a journey to get to the Smiths Falls site. As he watched the results pour in for the North Elmsley Ward by-election on Monday night, Churchill reiterated his support for a two-site hospital, since his residents use both.

EMC News - The Sounds of Christmas concert was enjoyed by a packed house at the Bethel Pentecostal Church in Smiths Falls on Saturday night. The Christmas concert was a thrill for those who gathered to listen to the sounds of Legacy Brass. A solo by Mikayla Kozlof was a heart-warming, crowd pleaser.

EMC News - At just four weeks out from accepting delivery of the new ¿re truck, ¿re Chief Joel Gorman was given council approval to have the retro¿t work done to the entrance of the existing ¿re bays. “Winter’s nipping at our heels here,” said Coun. Ken Graham. “We’re never going to be able to accommodate them (¿re trucks) for the winter.” Estimates for this work to be completed came in at $13,000 to $15,000 and includes increasing the clearance at the top of the bay to allow the new truck to enter. Gorman said the work could take several months to complete. “It sounds like we have no other choice but to ¿nd alternate accommodations for the next four to ¿ve months,” said mayor Dennis Staples. The chief is looking into two town storage options presently that would remove the two existing ¿re trucks from the public works garage, but said this isn’t ideal as they are located off site. At the regular council session that followed special committee of the whole this

week, council formally cancelled the tender for the renovation/addition to the ¿re hall due to budgetary constraints. The original tenders received Aug. 17, 2012 expired last Saturday. When it comes to the overall discussion around the future of the ¿re department accommodations there was general agreement around the table to wait until budget 2013 debates begin later this month. Coun. Jay Brennan voiced his desire to see a solution that will see the town through the next few decades rather than the proposed repair work. “I just think that’s a BandAid and I think we should do it right,” Brennan added. “For me, it’s a top priority.” Chief Gorman’s report this week shows cost estimates of $210,000 to $260,000 from Genivar to replace the two-bay Àoor and reinforce the walls. DDD&G quoted $284,840 plus taxes to complete the needed repairs as well as the retro¿t to the bays for the new truck. Staples put forward a secondary option in the form of a new partnership with Lanark County Ambulance See HALL page SF3

Free concert helps stock shelves at area food bank By STACEY ROY

EMC Events - The spirit of giving will be making a delivery to Smiths Falls via the rails this month when the annual CP Holiday Train stops for a free musical concert in support of the Smiths Falls Community Food Bank. Crowds are urged to come out with their donation to the food bank on Thursday, Nov. 29 for the 8:15 p.m. concert at 63 Victoria Avenue in Smiths Falls. This year’s featured acts include Miss Emily of Kingston and the return of Brothers Dube. “Miss Emily, has the best pipes we have ever heard in an unsigned artist,” said Gene Simmons of the band KISS. Miss Emily makes her impression with an Adele-esque vocal power that is truly jaw dropping. This best kept musical secret has been getting out into the music scene this year with shows at the Ottawa Bluesfest and Bobcaygeon Big Music Fest. The Brothers Dube will return to the Holiday Train stage for the second year in a row. These teenage artists got their start by uploading their mother’s favourite songs on YouTube for her to enjoy during her battle with cancer.

After her death the boys decided they wanted to use their musical talents to give back and have done so with numerous concert engagements that have raised over $100,000 for Haiti relief, breast cancer research and children’s organizations. Carolyn Barr, manager of the Smiths Falls Community Food Bank thanked the ¿re¿ghters for volunteering this year, Canadian Paci¿c, the entertainers and the entire community for supporting those in need. “Certainly, the donations from the CP Holiday Train does an awful lot to ¿ll the cupboards here,” Barr added. “It will certainly go a long way to sustaining our ground beef and fresh vegetables.” Increasing demand month over month and the onset of the cold winter weather has depleted the food bank’s shelves to date. Barr hopes the donations received will see them through until April 2013. This year’s Holiday Train will be traveling from Merrickville to Smiths Falls Nov. 29. From there the train continues to the outer reaches of eastern Ontario in Belleville for a Nov. 30 show. When asked why the Perth show

fell off the schedule this year, Kevin Hrysak, spokesperson for Canadian Paci¿c Canada had this to say: “As you can appreciate we receive numerous amounts of requests from communities for our train to stop and only have a short window of time to accommodate as many communities as we can,” he said. “Next year we will be back in Perth and have advised the town.” The two trains traveling through Canada and the United States of America will visit a total of 150 communities where free concerts will be given following a corporate donation to the local food bank made by CP at each stop. “We wanted to be able to do more than just write a cheque, we wanted to help raise awareness, support, food and money for this cause,” Hrysak said in an email interview. Funds donated to the food bank system are multiplied by ¿ve since food bank organization’s buying power is stronger than the individual consumer. In the 13 years that the CP Holiday Train has been on the tracks it’s raised over $6.4 million and 2.6 million pounds of food.

New downtown festival secures town support By STACEY ROY

EMC News – The message of living well will take to the streets of Smiths Falls next summer when the Downtown Business Association (DBA) hosts the ¿rst Healthy Living Festival. Scheduled for June 22, 2013 the Healthy Living Festival was made public at this week’s special committee of the whole session where representatives asked for $5,000 of town funds in addition to in-kind support of the same amount. “To operate the festival successfully for the ¿rst few years it’s going to take a greater amount of funds,” explained Amy Hogue, DBA coordinator. The DBA is investing $5,000 of its funds into the venture and hopes to leverage additional funds through a Celebrate Ontario grant to be submitted Friday, Nov. 23 for an overall budget of $15,000. The festival itself would build on the town’s demonstrated efforts to encourage a healthy lifestyle to residents

while attracting out-of-town attendees. Organizers will be asking for Beckwith and Main Street West to be closed off to traf¿c during the festival so that events can be held in the core. “We envision an event which centres on healthy living concepts,” said Maire Hogan, DBA chair. The festival will incorporate local businesses through the display of various exer-

cise options, food and nutrition products and ¿tness wear. The ¿rst time festival will take place the same day as the annual Triathlon event to capture those participants, but Hogan said she believes the festival can draw people from the entire Ottawa area and Seaway region. “This festival has great potential for success,” Hogan told councillors this Monday.

Coun. Dawn Quinn echoed these thoughts, saying tourism is the biggest economic driver in the town and needs to be supported at every turn. While acknowledging the real ¿nancial constraints the town ¿nds itself in going into the 2013 budget process, Quinn posed one simple question to her peers when urging them to take a chance: “We have to ask ourselves how bene¿cial is this to the

town?” Mayor Dennis Staples was able to suggest a compromise between the DBA’s $5,000 request and councillors’ comfort level with dedicating funds in such short notice. A commitment to ¿nd $2,500 in next year’s existing $13,500 festival budget was formally approved by council this week to allow the DBA to include the town’s support in its Celebrate Ontario grant

project. Town staff noted that all of the $13,500 in next year’s budget is allocated to various projects in town including $9,000 for the Smiths Falls Canal and Railway Festival. With this approval of $2,500 the draft allocation numbers will have to shift to accommodate the late entry. “Some groups may not be happy and maybe one more will be happy,” said Staples.

service. The mayor expects the county ¿nance committee to have passed its budget at the Wednesday, Nov. 21 meeting with an item to relocate the ambulance station in Smiths Falls from Maple Street to another site. “There may be an opportunity to partner in terms of a joint project,” the mayor said. Currently, discussions are in the beginning stages so neither the town nor the county service was able to say if such a partnership would result in an extra addition to the Smiths Falls municipal complex on Beckwith Street. James McIsaac, chief manager of the Lanark County Ambulance Service said the county has identi¿ed a need to replace the Smiths Falls station in the future. Rick Hannah, emergency services coordinator for the county con¿rmed the Smiths Falls station is the next one to be replaced within the system. Over the last few years both Almonte and Lanark Highlands have received new ambulance stations. “We’re currently renting the building and we’re kind of cramped in it,” Hannah said. The bay currently holds three vehicles in a two-bay garage. Hannah said there are no immediate plans to leave, but that the county and the town have begun discussions to see if a partnership is feasible. As an aside, Hannah noted the county ambulance service is looking to ¿nd ef¿ciencies in many ways, including looking at changing over their ambulance body from a Ford model to a Mercedes. Service testing of this new model has shown reductions in fuel costs to be as much as 50 per cent. Both items will be coming back to Lanark County council for further discussion.

Residentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; feedback helps deďŹ ne downtownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future By STACEY ROY

EMC News - The vision of Smiths Falls future downtown core is beginning to come into focus following the most recent public session where draft proposals were reviewed by residents and stakeholders. The Nov. 15 session at the Comfort Inn welcomed a good number of residents to review key elements of the proposed Downtown Revitalization and Waterfront Integration Master Plan. Bruce Cudmore represented the two Âżrms (EDA and Sierra Planning and Management) leading the planning process and explained the importance of having both an overall long-term plan and a Community Improvement Plan for the downtown core. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The revitalization really needs to be achieved by the development of both these plans,â&#x20AC;? Cudmore said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So they are mutually reinforcing at the end.â&#x20AC;? The master plan provides overall guidance for future projects while the Community Improvement Plan (CIP) will outline a speciÂżc area where unique supporting grants will be available to ensure the core is set out against the town. Consultants and the town have completed the preliminary work and are now looking at identifying which grants will help Smiths Falls business owners and the downtown thrive the most. The draft master plan is lengthy and documents are


Tony Humphreys of Davidsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Courtyard considers the graphic representation of the proposed Smiths Falls Downtown Revitalization and Waterfront Integration Master Plan during a public meeting held Nov. 15. Another meeting will be held when detailed plans are sketched out. available online at When complete, the plan will strengthen the connection between the downtown and the waterfront while rejuvenating the downtown as a whole. This is most clearly seen in the suggestion to extend all roads leading down to the water right down to the proposed green space set back of the canal. Improving the visibility of the water from downtown could be further enhanced by removing the cement walls of the Beckwith Street bridge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The downtown and waterfront is what makes this community very special,â&#x20AC;? Cudmore said. For this reason the consultants are planning to establish several lookout spots along

the waterfront for the public. Helping them get there will be a new pedestrian bridge connecting the downtown with the waterfront walking path. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It provides that missing link,â&#x20AC;? said Nikki McKernan, planning assistant for the town. A request to have a circuit that could be safely walked around the combined locks area was made. One resident noted the repairs to one of the existing pedestrian bridges in the park is needed as is a safe pedestrian route along Abbott Street. Just as the plan speaks to adding bridges, the suggestion to remove Confederation Drive to expand the surrounding park lands was also put forward. Desmond Foley of Smiths

Falls voiced concern with the proposal to move the RV park from Victoria Park to another location, saying its an active place in the summer and a great draw for downtown businesses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I see the RV park as a big bonus,â&#x20AC;? Foley added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a gold mine.â&#x20AC;? In order to draw boaters into the commercial core residents suggested way-Âżnding signs by the docks. Foley thought the existing lock station gates workshop would make a tourist attraction, to which McKernan replied discussions are under way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that

Parks Canada is considering,â&#x20AC;? she conÂżrmed. Welcoming visitors goes beyond the waterfront to the roadways that lead into town. Establishing a repeated gateway image was another key element of the plan. These could be placed at the key community access points such as the corner of Abbott and Lombard streets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an important arrival point,â&#x20AC;? Cudmore said, noting drivers can choose to bypass the downtown or not at this junction. Beckwith Street Once in the downtown there was no debate around the need to diversify the mix of retail to encourage shop-to-shop visiting. On the perennial issue of parking two options were put forward: angled parking (with drive in or back in) and parallel parking. Another suggestion by consultants was to stagger the parking meter fee for most convenient (most expensive), somewhat convenient and not convenient parking (least expensive or free). â&#x20AC;&#x153;That seemed like a very good idea,â&#x20AC;? remarked Lois Dewey. The suggestion to slow trafÂżc by expanding the sidewalks is being reviewed by town staff to see if there are any impacts to snow removal. One resident questioned the notion of redirecting the trafÂżc from Tim Hortons and Burger King onto

the side streets as it would be a congestion nightmare for property owners in that area who already report congestion from those parking to get to those establishments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would just be a disaster,â&#x20AC;? said Noel White. He wonders if any studying is being done to see how these changes to Beckwith Street will impact Abbott Street trafÂżc. To make downtown friendlier to those on foot a proposal to establish a deÂżned pedestrian crossing at every intersection along Beckwith Street and one between town hall and the Tim Hortons is being put forward. Kinsmen Park beside the town hall will receive a facelift under the draft plan. Consultants see this as a great location for a community square where public events and social gatherings can take place. By closing off Daniel Street between the library and municipal complex the consultants feel they can bring in more green space and a deÂżned courtyard, which is very much needed in that end of town. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a place where things happen,â&#x20AC;? Cudmore said of the downtown in general. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We feel the pedestrians need to be given greater priority.â&#x20AC;? Rob Irvine recommended making the Carnegie library the focal backdrop for the town square. Detailed drawings on the plan will be coming forward.

The durability and precision of these wares paired with practical and attractive design provide the basis for fabulous cooking, whether for the family on a Tuesday evening, or entertaining friends on the weekend.â&#x20AC;?

EMC News – It was a busy night for Chef Ram Morgandas of Chuckles Jack restaurant at the Comfort Inn Saturday night, but everything went off without a hitch. There were 159 tickets sold for the food tasting event that bene¿tted three local charities, including the Smiths Falls and District Centre for Youth, Lanark Animal Welfare Society and the Smiths Falls and District Food Bank. All will all share in the $2,255 that was raised – as well as some $500 in food items. “The youth centre will received $1,000,” Morgandas said, “because they brought a lot of people to help. Without them, we couldn’t have done this.” Three young people who hang out at the youth centre, Holley Graham, Jeffrey Hyland and Alisha Thomson, were on hand to help serve during the evening where guests had a chance to sample eight different dishes for a $10 fee. All proceeds were donated to the three charities, and all food was also donated by the restaurant. Dishes included roasted red pepper soup, a vegetable samosa, chicken rolls, burgers, wings, buttered chicken, veggie curry masala (an Indian dish), chef’s pasta special and tiramisu. “We are about connecting with the community,” Mor-

of the servers on staff, Brian Paquette and James Creighton, each donated $25 from their tips. The food bank will receive $627.50 plus the donated food items, and LAWS will receive $627.50 as well. 1.866.943.8632 Limited time offer; where 4G Fixed Wireless or 4G Satellite service is available.

Looking Back 100 YEARS AGO – NOVEMBER 19, 1912 Smiths Falls is to have a poultry fair this year on Saturday November 30th and everyone will do well to bring their fowl to this fair. A large number of buyers will be here and the highest market price will be paid. Mr. H.E. Smith’s handsome new bungalow, on McGill street is completed and the family are moving in this week. This building is of clinker brick and is one of the most ornate and artistic houses in town. A special meeting was held last Friday evening in the S.O.E. hall to consider the advisability of forming a Maids and Daughters lodge in connection with the above society. There was a good attendance of the ladies and it was decided to go ahead and organize. About 30 names were handed in. The name of the Society is to be known as the “Lady Minto Lodge.” 50 YEARS AGO – NOVEMBER 22, 1962 Taxable assessment in Smiths Falls has increased $1,365,901 in one year, despite a loss of approximately $325,000 taxable assessment from properties demolished over the same period. Assessor Gordon O. Beatty, reporting to Town Council on Monday night, noted that the financial prospects for the town appeared to be extremely favourable. Smiths Falls $200,000 Federal building project has not been cancelled, as suspected earlier by some members of Town Council. Members of Council learned on Monday night from George H. Doucett, MP for Lanark, that work will start at the very earliest date. The Recreation Committee is planning on installing a wading pool at Alexander Park next year if funds can be raised. Chairman C.J. Gilhuly told members of Town Council on Monday night that small children living in the Shawville section of town have too great a distance to travel to reach existing pools. 25 YEARS AGO – NOVEMBER 18, 1987 They don’t plan on leaving just yet, but veterans of the Royal Canadian Legion are preparing to pass on the torch for others to carry. Smiths Falls Town Council was caught off guard Monday night with a funding request of $150,000 from Lanark County Council. The funding request would be put towards a $3.8 million addition and renovations to Lanark Lodge in Perth. Picture yourself stranded for two weeks and tangled in a mess of reeds miles from your home with no way to escape. Then imagine the feeling of gratitude and relief when someone comes to help. You’re fed and taken to a warm, comfortable home. For a German shepherd named Lady the feeling was expressed with a steadily wagging tail after she was rescued from certain death by Marie and Steven Jacques of Lombardy. 10 YEARS AGO –NOVEMBER 20, 2002 A large craft fair and a radiothon close out this year’s United Way of Lanark County campaign. Co-ordinator Mike Thompson says this year’s fundraising effort is “pretty much on a par” with last year’s record-setting total, but that donations have slowed in recent days. With the campaign set to wind down this Saturday, Nov. 23, the total stands at $184,170 — 67 per cent of the $275,000 goal. The Smiths Falls police service has seen a significant jump in its calls for service, councillor Gerry Huddleston reported to council. The representation to the Police Services Board (PSB) said calls through October, 2002 were at 9,172. That’s just 400 shy of the total number of calls for service for all of 2001, with another busy two months still to go in 2002. Contrary to local rumour, there are no contractors hired or designs released for the construction of a new SFDCI. Compiled by: STACEY ROY

My two cents on Santa’s parade EMC Editorial - It’s that time of year again when I quietly hum Christmas songs to myself and plan a season of great family togetherness mixed with a healthy dose of reporting. Part of my festive spirit comes from my job, which is an extra treat for me, so you can imagine my excitement to be working this weekend for this year’s Santa Claus parade. I still remember the one year I was able to sit on a Àoat and hand out candy to kids along the street. It was awesome! This year while kids receive candy, parents will be asked to share their thoughts on a suggestion to move the Smiths Falls parade to an evening event next year. Here is another perk of the job,

For the Record STACEY ROY because I get to skip the line and have my say here. I understand the desire to shake things up especially when its an annual event that has been taking place for years. I also know many parades in the county have gone the way of evening parades to capture the twinkle of lights, and that’s exactly why I place my vote squarely on the side of an afternoon parade. Here are reasons: • Variety is desired during holiday seasons and I believe there are people like me who

want to enjoy the spirit of the season with family across the county. In years past I have gone to the Smiths Falls parade and the parade in Carleton Place to be with my niece and nephew. Having it on the same day will restrict the number of parade days available. • An afternoon parade is great for young families whose children go to bed around 7-8 p.m. at night. I also think having it in the afternoon is good for business with spectators nipping into stores to window shop/ warm up. You never know how many of them return to buy the next week. • On the point of warming up I can say from experience at the Carleton Place parade that an evening event is very

cold. I’m talking stinging pain. I actually started to pray to see Santa and started cheering as loudly as the children when he came because it meant my holiday freeze was over. Red ¿ngers and toes is not a Hallmark moment. • My last point is more from the parents’ and paper perspective. At night time parades, the smiling faces of kids on the Àoats can’t be seen and the opportunity to capture that special event for them is limited. I think that wraps up my earnest request to maintain Smiths Falls’ parade as an afternoon experience. Being different is a good thing and something Smiths Falls should celebrate and, while we’re at it, market. Merry Christmas to all!

Letters to the Editor

Rural communities deserve health care DEAR EDITOR: RE: Smiths Falls EMC, ‘Unions urge towns to voice opposition to hospital cuts’, November 15, 2012 and Perth Courier, ‘Could cuts mean the end of two-site hospital?’ The writing is on the wall, the majority of Ontario’s small and rural hospitals will face death by a thousand cuts unless communities like Perth and Smiths Falls, now seeing massive cuts to their district hospital services, pipe up. The hospital’s interim CEO said as much publicly recently when she admitted that $4 million in service cuts now being made, will see the two-site hospital through only to 2015. And what’s more she said, “there is no guarantee that further cuts won’t be needed.” In the mania of hospital cuts being pushed by the Ontario Liberals, what’s being lost is, that the people living in rural

communities deserve access to local health services. They shouldn’t have drive to bigger, more urban hospitals to get the majority of their health care. In Perth and Smiths Falls where there is already a high senior population, the health needs of ageing baby boomers should be a big consideration in keeping both hospital sites open. We do agree with the hospital CEO in one key area. It would indeed have been more appropriate for the hospital administration to have engaged in a full and respectful dialogue with the Perth and Smiths Falls communities and the workers’ representatives, before acquiescing and doing the bidding of the province and regional health authority to cut services. Sincerely, Michael Hurley President Ontario Council of Hospital Unions (OCHU)

Diamond of a day for Jubilee medal winners By DESMOND DEVOY

EMC News – It may be the Queen’s Jubilee year, but Lanark County residents were the ones getting honoured last week. The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medals were handed out at the Perth Civitan Club hall on Friday, Nov. 16, by Lanark, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington MP Scott Reid and the riding’s MPP Randy Hillier. Reid reminded the assembled that Her Majesty was, in British Commonwealth countries, considered to be “the font of all honour,” and was a model for all of her subjects, a model that those being honoured had clearly mirrored. “She has passed up on the life of indulgence that has entrapped so many royal persons in the past,” said Reid. Just as Reid saw Queen Elizabeth as an example, he noted that she too did not have to look too far for selÀessness within her own family, in the guise of her father, King George VI, who, after seeing the heroism during the Blitz that rained down on London in the 1940s, created the George Cross. While the Victorian Cross recognizes military heroism, the George Cross recognizes “heroes who were noncombatants.” The Jubilee Medal follows


All of the assembled Lanark County winners of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal join MP in that tradition. Just as the wearing of a military uniform does not automatically confer bravery, “the absence of a uniform does not take away the ability for bravery,” said Reid. “The queen has demonstrated a different type of courage (with) the persistent patience (and) giving of one’s time. It is ¿tting that as many such people as possible should be honoured for following in her example.” Hillier noted that about 44 people were being honoured from around Lanark County that day, and that both he and Reid had gone out into the

community to seek advice and direction on who was worthy of the award. Hillier echoed Reid’s remarks that, just as the queen had done, those being honoured that day also offered “persistence and patience, the giving of one’s time, to ones who are their neighbours, friends and countrymen.” Smiths Falls area • Robert Chevrier of Smiths Falls served in Korea from 1952 to 1953, in Germany from 1955 to 1958, and in Egypt from 1964 to 1965.

Food bank asks you to help them build Mountain of Food By STAFF EMC Events - On Saturday, Nov. 24 Hugh Colton and his Mountain of Food campaign will be rolling into town for the annual collection for the Smiths Falls Community Food Bank. A vehicle from Town & Country Chrysler will be located at Andress’ Your Independent Grocer, Food Basics, National Grocers, Cash & Carry and the Garden Market from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Shoppers can select their own donation items from a list of needed items to be handed out that day or simply pick up a pre-packaged

bag at one of these locations on their way to the cash. “We bene¿t greatly from these mountains of food,” remarked Julian Hewryszko of Elgin’s food cupboard. Carolyn Barr, manager of the Smiths Falls Community Food Bank agreed, saying the Mountain of Food drive often helps her organization feed the community’s most vulnerable through to the spring. Colton hopes to engage grocery stores in restarting the donation challenge that took place at last year’s campaign. “Last year the grocery

people were unbelievable,” Colton said. In 2011 the grocery store chains took part in a challenge that ultimately netted 20, 000 lbs of food for food banks across the program. Every food bank manager from across the region agreed demand is only increasing month over month with numbers climbing as soon as the cold weather hits and the cost of heat is added to an already tight budget. Be sure to do your part to help families struggling this winter season and help build the Mountain of Food for the Smiths Falls Community Food Bank.

EMC News - Many nineyear-old children are looking for that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; toy - something to make their birthday memorable. This month Smiths Falls youth, Tain Hughes achieved this goal of a memorable birthday by giving up gifts in order to raise funds to provide a permanent source of clean water to 100 Rwandan people. Hughes was inspired to action this September when she was watching a YouTube video with her parents about Scott Harrison, founder and CEO of Charity: Water talk about how Rwandan residents walk long distances for dirty water. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought it was kind of sad that some people were not getting clean water,â&#x20AC;? Hughes said. Immediately after the video ended the young girl announced she would give up her birthday just as another nine-year-old girl had done in the video. She set a goal of $2,000 and prepared for her birthday party Nov. 9 at the Youth Arena hall where more than 30 children attended with their parents for the special event. That day they watched a video about the project, danced and drank the only beverage available - clean water. Through hard work, her efforts have paid off with more than $1,000 raised

fects that come from a lack of clean water. Once he had this realization Harrison chose to leave his lucrative job in New York and focus his efforts on helping others in the world. According to the charity website, one in nine people on the earth (or 800 million) donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have access to clean water. Charity: Water makes a difference by building wells in African communities to relieve the long lines and extensive walk for those residents. They also provide rain water catchments and sand Âżlters.

GORDON – In loving memory of a dear mother, grandmother and great grandmother Phyllis who passed away November 24, 2010. Heaven Needed Mom So many things of Mom I miss, Her gentle hug and tender kiss. I still can feel her warm embrace, And picture yet her loving face. A mothers’ tasks are never done, And Heaven must have needed one. For angels came and took her hand, And led her to God’s promised land. She’s surely kept quite busy there, While brushing little angels’ hair. And making sure they’re dressed just right, Not staying out too late at night. Although there’s sadness, this I know, She’s waiting there, her face aglow. I close my eyes and I can see, Her arms still open wide for me. Always loved and remembered Daughter Mary and Bill Son Bernie and Faye and families

CONNOLLY, Lloyd November 23, 2002 Ten years since that sad day The one I loved was called away God took him home, it was His will But in my heart, he liveth still. Never forgotten, Mary

DAGENAIS, Denise M. In loving memory of a dear sister who passed away November 28, 2003. One morning I found you in eternal sleep; I tried to wake you as I began to weep, But all my pleas you could not hear; Oh if I could have only kept you near, Away from the voices of those who went before, Who beckoned you to come to that distant shore. Although I cry and stand grief-stricken by your grave, I promise not to forget the loving memories you gave; But still I miss you so very much my sister dear, And your caring words I once again long to hear; My heart’s only solace is one day I will see you as before, Beckoning me to come join you on that white distant shore. Love Dar

GIFF, Reg - In loving memory of a devoted husband, father and grandfather, who was called to heaven 10 years ago on November 22, 2002. We miss you in so many ways, We miss the things you used to say, And when family times we do recall, It’s then we miss you most of all. Nothing can ever take away The love a heart holds dear. Fond memories linger every day Remembrance keeps you near. Always in our thoughts Forever in our hearts Love, Erma, Wendy, Dee, Justin & Brianne

DUFFY - In memory of Billy, January 26, 1983November 25, 2008. You Never Said Goodbye. You never said “I’m leaving”, You never said goodbye, You were gone before we knew it, And only God knew why. A million times we needed you A million times we cried, If love alone could have saved you, You never would have died. In life we loved you dearly In death we love you still, In our hearts you hold a place, That no one else can fill. It broke our hearts to lose you But you didn’t go alone, For part of us went with you, The day God took you Home. Never forgotten Dad, Tammy and Alanah

CURRAN - In loving memory of Chris Curran, August 12, 1964 - November 27, 2011.

The Curran and McQuatt Families


CONNOLLY, Lloyd November 23, 2002 God took the strength of a mountain The majesty of a tree The warmth of a summer sun The calm of a quiet sea The generous soul of nature The comforting arm of night The wisdom of the ages The power of the eagles flight The joy of morning in spring The faith of a mustard seed The patience of eternity The depth of a family need Then God combined these qualities When there was nothing more to add He knew His masterpiece was complete And so, he called it......’Dad’ Lovingly remembered, Lorie

Leonard S. Robertson Sept. 12, 1930 – Nov. 24, 2011 In loving memory of a devoted husband, father and grandpa who passed away on November 24, 2011.

Chris Curran - August 12, 1964 - November 27, 2011 We thought of you with love today, But that is nothing new. We thought of you yesterday, And days before that too. We think of you in silence, We often speak your name. Now all we have are memories, And your picture in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake, With which we’ll never part, God has you in His keeping We have you in our heart. Love Mom, Kevin and Amy xoxo

Kyle Simpson February 5, 1990 - November 28, 2009 More and more each day we miss him Friends may think the wound is healed But they little know the sorrow Lies within our hearts concealed Love you forever Dad and Mom

Summer is gone, And now it’s Fall, Which brings back memories, Saddest of all. Each morning when we awake, Knowing you are gone, No one knows our heartache, As we carry on. Our hearts ache with sadness, And secret tears still flow, What losing you has meant to us, No one will ever know. Our thoughts are always about you, Your place no one else will ever fill. In life we loved you dearly, And we always will.

Keith Hobbs October 4, 1932 - November 20, 2009 We think about you always, We talk about you still, You have never been forgotten, And you never will. We hold you close within our hearts, And there you will remain, To walk and guide us through our lives Until we meet again. Your loving Family THE EMC - 52 - Thursday, November 22, 2012

CURRAN - In loving memory of Chris Curran, November 27, 2011. One minute you were here, the next you were taken. No warning, no chance to say goodbye, you were gone. It’s hard to believe it’s been a year. There hasn’t been a day that I haven’t thought of you, missed you, and cried that I don’t have you with me anymore. I am thankful that I have so many memories of the life we shared. That and knowing you would want us to keep making more with you in our hearts is what keeps me going. Hunting season was your favourite time of year. So we went out and hunted and ran your Beagles. Laughed, joked, and spoke and thought of you often, you were missed but not forgotten. You will never be forgotten. You will always be missed and loved by the people that knew and cared about you. Love, Kim

JACQUES, Raymond Jr. - In loving memory of my son who passed away November 26, 1988 24 years today my son was called To his eternal rest; Gone, where the angels sing so sweet, And taken when God knew best, I miss him here so very much, His presence oft seems nigh, But I hope in Heaven to meet Where no one says goodbye. Love Dad

SADLER - In loving memory of a Dear Husband, Father and Grandfather, Russell Allen, who passed away November 21, 2000. We think of you in silence And make no outward show. For what it meant to lose you, Only those who loved you know. Remembering you is easy, We do it every day. It’s the pain of losing you, That will never go away. Margaret and Family

Meet me in theâ&#x20AC;ŚMiddle East, for Aladdin starting Nov. 25 EMC Entertainment - East and west merge for the Christmas season with the Mississippi Muddsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; production of Aladdin, which the musical theatre group will present in Carleton Place starting this weekend. This show is an extravaganza of chorus and costumes, songs and spirits and promises to delight audiences of all ages. Folklore has handed down the story of Aladdin and his magic lamp for thousands of years, as part of the tales of the Arabian Nights. Pantomimes have parlayed Aladdinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s adventures to English audiences for 200

years or more. Most recently, Disneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s animated version has charmed North Americans with the poor boy and the princess, the genie and the sorcerer and a score of well-loved songs. Director Tony Scott has chosen music for this version that represents a variety of genres and tastes, from Broadwaystyle to the Beatles, funky to folksy. There is something for everyone in the audience to recognize, to hum or to tap their toes to as the talented musicians, cast and chorus perform their musical numbers. Since the original adventures of Aladdin and his magic lamp

UCDSB receives update on Bill 13, the Accepting Schools Act EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Last week the Upper Canada District School Board received an update on Bill 13, the Accepting Schools Act, which is designed to assist Boards in creating safe, inclusive and accepting schools essential for student achievement and well-being. During his presentation to trustees to explain the bill, Superintendent of Education David Coombs outlined this week is Anti-Bullying Week (Nov. 19 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 23), and it will be celebrated at Upper Canada schools with various events to raise awareness. He added that the deÂżnition of bullying, according to the Act, is: â&#x20AC;˘ Bullying means repeated aggressive behaviour; â&#x20AC;˘ This includes the use of any physical, verbal, electronic, written or other means; and â&#x20AC;˘ This also includes what is commonly known as cyberbullying. Coombs also clariÂżed for trustees that the Accepting Schools Act is not simply â&#x20AC;&#x153;tougher consequencesâ&#x20AC;? for those guilty of bullying. Rather, the Board has several measures in place that are designed to prevent bullying and to assist with investigation of all reported bullying

incidents. Those measures include Link Crew, a mentorship program where Grade 12 students mentor Grade 9 students to ensure they are safe, valued and supported. There is also the Boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s extensive Character Education program where students of all ages are taught the importance of honesty, empathy, fairness, caring, responsibility, perseverance, respect and resilience. There are also supports in place for the bullied, the bully and the bystanders. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is not the antibullying legislation,â&#x20AC;? stated Coombs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bill does include a provision for consequences but it includes everything else that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily see such as progressive discipline, calling the parent, preparing a plan, and involving student support counselors. As well, the mental health of the bully is part of the process we follow to work to resolve issues.â&#x20AC;? Coombs added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to be sure that those students who in the past didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel welcomed and supported, are indeed welcomed and supported.â&#x20AC;? Submitted by the Upper Canada District School Board.

take place in China, the Muddsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; stage design and costumes are also oriental style, albeit with a side trip to an Egyptian tomb! The set and costumes will dazzle with pattern, colour and textures. Fans of the Mudds will meet some new characters in this production. Wait until you hear from Aladdinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother, the Widow Twankey, played by Jim MacGregor, and the steps she has to take to make ends meet! Cait Morton, who plays Aladdinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sister, Wishee Washee, keeps the audience engaged in true panto style. Keep an eye out also for these young

cast members: the executioner, played by Kirra Martin; the magicianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s apprentice, played by Sydney Osborne; the Spirit of the Ring, played by Maddy Martin; and Rick Shaw, played by Gillian Whitlock. The counterpart to Aladdinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s naĂŻve good nature is the evil sorcerer from North Africa, Abanazar, played by Adam Pelletier. He is a villain that the audience will love to hate, until the story takes an unexpected turn near the end. Finally, there is the impartial but somewhat doddering genie that appears on command. Of course, Aladdin and his

princess are central to the story. When Aladdin (played by Tanner Flinn, encounters the Princess, the Royal Emperorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter, played by Amy Bourne, in the garden for the Âżrst time, it is love at Âżrst sight. The actors do a fabulous job of depicting young love with the familiar ballad, â&#x20AC;&#x153;You Had Me from â&#x20AC;&#x153;Helloâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;? and the less known pop number, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve Just Seen a Faceâ&#x20AC;?. This collection of characters of all ages, stages and sizes comes together in a show that will not disappoint. Bring your grandchildren, bring your grandparents, your date, your

spouse, your siblings and your friends and have a magical time with the Mudds. Aladdin happens at the Carleton Place Town Hall, 175 Bridge St., at 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 30, Dec. 1, 7 and 8 and at 2 p.m. on Dec. 2 and 8. Tickets are only $20, available via the Chamber of Commerce, 613-257-1976. Sunday, Nov. 25, there will be a special preview performance at 2 p.m., with $5 admission at the door. Proceeds to the Carleton Place Food Bank. See you in Pekin! Mary Alexander is a Mudds member and a member of the Mudds publicity team.

Councillors start talking numbers in preparation for 2013 budget By STACEY ROY


EMC News - The Bethel Pentecostal Church in Smiths Falls wants everyone to be warm this winter. They have been collecting coats to give to people who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have one. Recently, members of this church like Ruth Shirley and Paul Birley (above) set up some coat racks inside the foyer of the Town Hall.

TOWN COUNCIL IN BRIEF EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The following information came from the special committee-of-the-whole and regular council session held Monday, Nov. 19, 2012.

EMC News - Steve Fournier, interim CAO for the town of Smiths Falls, will bring back three possible tax rate options for council this month after hearing that most councillors are interested in entertaining a modest inĂ&#x20AC;ationary increase for 2013 the next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really want to leave it open to you,â&#x20AC;? Fournier told councillors last Tuesday, Nov. 13 at committee-of-the-whole. A handful of council members asked to hold the line on the tax rate to reĂ&#x20AC;ect the ongoing struggle of homeowners in the community. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Any sort of symbolic relief we can make to taxpayers should be our goal,â&#x20AC;? said Coun. Jay Brennan. While agreeing with the message of their peers, councillors like Chris Cummings, Lorraine Allen and mayor Dennis Staples voiced concern over meeting their municipal responsibilities when it comes to roads, etc. if a modest increase isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t at least on the table.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have trouble raising the taxes if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s necessary,â&#x20AC;? Allen said. Numbers such as two or three per cent were discussed last week as possible rate increases and will be the topic of conversation once again after staff completes their draft budget preparation Nov. 26. Fournier has said he hopes council will be able to approve its 2013 budget before the New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bell rings. Tentative numbers from Lanark County will help this process along. At last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting the mayor noted Smiths Falls should see a 1.7 per cent ($37,000) reduction in the taxes paid to the county next year. The townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2013 county tax bill will come in just over $2 million. These funds go towards the Ontario Works program, childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s services, social housing, youth centres, ambulance service and Lanark Lodge. Staples added it looks like the youth centres will receive their $40,000 each from the upper tier government. The county plans to pass their bud-

get at the Nov. 28 meeting with an anticipated two per cent rate increase. MPAC Beverley Disney, municipal relations representative for the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) added further details to the discussion last week with her report on the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2013 assessment. This will be the second four-year property assessment process the province has undertaken. As in 2008, Smiths Falls property owners will receive their 2012 assessments beginning Nov. 19 with the municipal role being delivered to town hall Dec. 11. Business property owners can expect their assessments to come a little later this year as MPAC will begin mailing all assessments in one package rather than several throughout the year. Disney points out any increases to the assessment will be phased in four equal parts over the next four years while any decreases will be applied immediately. Assessments are completed using a current value assess-

ment meaning a reasonable expectation of what the property will sell for in an open market between a willing seller and buyer. Overall, Smiths Fallsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; residential assessment has increased by 13.14 per cent while multi-residential has gone up by 19 per cent. The commercial and industrial markets have experienced a reduction in town by two and 11 per cent respectively. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a surprise the overall average of industrial has gone down,â&#x20AC;? Staples said, noting the closures and vacant space the town experienced since 2008. The mayor invited MPAC to return to town early in the new year for a public meeting where the new four-year assessment process can be explained in greater detail to residents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was very helpful,â&#x20AC;? he said of the last public session held in 2008. Anyone who questions the validity of their property assessment has until April 1, 2013 to Âżle a request for consideration with MPAC.

Cultural Centre Coun. Dawn Quinn was the lone councillor to vote against a by-law to fund a Building Needs Assessment Plan alongside Valley Heartland CFDC. The funds ($7,500 from Valley Heartland and $2,500 from the town) will be used to assess the feasibility of re-building the 1861 dry shed building at the Heritage House Museum. This structure no longer exists on the property but was once there. If rebuilt it would house the Silversides Tool collection acquired from the Rideau Canal Museum. Coun. Chris Cummings questioned whether the site at the municipal museum is the right Âżt for such a cultural centre. Please see future issues of The Record News for more details.

Cultural planner extension Lynne Clifford-Wardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contract as the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cultural planner was extended until June 30, 2013 to allow her to implement the Cultural Plan recently presented to council. The plan looks at a number of ways to integrate culture into the town, including enhancing the number of public art spaces in Smiths Falls. The decision to extend her contract was unanimous.

Town nursing home first to receive Alzheimer Society fundraising trophy By STACEY ROY

EMC News - The delivery of the inaugural Coffee Break fundraising trophy to Broadview Nursing Centre in Smiths Falls means bragging rights for a year and the knowledge that they helped a cause close to their hearts. The trophy, which depicts a large white coffee mug on top of a wooden base, was made by Volkcraft Cabinets in Smiths Falls. It was presented Nov. 7 in recognition of the Smiths Falls home’s success in being the nursing home to raise the most amount of money for the Alzheimer Society’s local programs. “We’re proud,” said Cheryl Bingley, staff member at the nursing centre. “They worked hard to get the trophy.”

A total of $375 was raised by hosting a bake sale, crock pot luncheon by staff and their annual Coffee Break event in September. “That’s the most we’ve raised so far,” Bingley said. The local nursing home has hosted a Coffee Break for the last three years, but decided to expand on its fundraising efforts this year with the other two initiatives. The plan worked with the funds raised nearly tripling this year. Bobbi-Jo Jarvis, fund development of¿cer at the Lanark County Alzheimer Society, thanked Broadview Nursing Centre staff and residents for supporting them year after year and for going above and beyond to be the ¿rst trophy recipients in 2012. All funds raised through

the Coffee Break events in Lanark County stay in the county to support local programs and services. Jarvis explained the Lanark County of¿ce offers eight adult day programs throughout the county in addition to various education and support programs. These programs are in high demand with lengthy waiting lists for service. A study by the Alzheimer Society of Canada may have some of the reasons for the increase in demand. According to the national study the number of people nation wide living with cognitive impairment is currently 747,000 and is expected to double to 1.4 million by 2031. The society is pushing for Canada to develop a national dementia plan immediately.

Lombardy cross country runners leave their mark By LAURIE WEIR

EMC Sports – Twins do a lot of things together. Take Vincent and Adam Menzies – twin brothers who are into sports… speci¿cally running. The dynamic duo has led the Lombardy Public School cross country team to various championships since 2007. They have helped earn many trophies at the school – right from novice through to senior Leeds and Grenville championships. Along with the Menzies brothers there is Colton Drover and Nick Dopson on those early trophies, and later came Austin Wiseman and Austin Dopson. Add Riley Thompson in 2009, and Brett Benoit in 2012, and this cross country team is making strides on the playing ¿eld. The senior boys team this year was led by Vincent Menzies, who placed third at the LGESAA championship last month at Memorial Park in Brockville. Coach Dianne Clarke said their goal was to win the senior boys championship. “To prepare for this 2.9km run, the boys practiced after school at the new commu-


The Lombardy Public School boys cross country team has had a banner year highlighted by some big wins this fall. Many of these boys have been running together since Grade 3. They are Adam Menzies, Vincent Menzies, Nick Dopson, Colton Drover, Brett Benoit, Austin Dopson and Austin Wiseman with their coach Dianne Clarke. nity centre in Smiths Falls on the running track,” she said. “They had to incorporate the stairs to better prepare for the large hill at the track meet.

They ran so well the day of the race that four of them placed in the top 10, smoking the competition to realize their goal.”

All seven boys supported one another as a team and together won the LGESAA championship, she said. Adam Menzies placed one

spot behind his brother, earning fourth place while Nick Dopson was sixth, and Colton Dopson was eighth. The team rounded out with Wiseman

taking 15th place, Benoit 35th and Austin Dopson crossed the line in 54th place. To get to LGESAA, the boys were at the Gladys Burt Memorial meet in Elgin. This invitational meet was their ¿rst regional competition held in September. The team ran a 2.3 km race, competing against about 100 other runners. Four of them ¿nished in the top 10 with the other three ¿nishing in the top 50. Vincent and Adam were second and third respectively, with Nick, and Colton in ¿fth and sixth places. Wiseman, Benoit and Dopson were 23rd, 30th and 47th respectively. Coach Clark says that cross country running is not a glory sport. “It takes grit and determination to run a long distance by yourself, often in cold, rain and mud,” she said. “Lombardy Public School has a group of determined athletes, who have over the years shown their strength of character, physical ¿tness and determination.” Throughout their public school years this group of boys has racked up an impressive 10 meet victories. Watch out when they hit high school. They’ll be a force to be watched on all circuits.

Bears earn pair of wins; suffer rare home loss against Raiders By STAFF

EMC Sports - Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably the busiest part of their schedule. Fortunately, the Smiths Falls Jr. A Bears are also playing some of their best hockey of the season. The top club in the Central Canada Hockey League (CCHL) kept things rolling along last week with dominant victories Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday and a narrow defeat at home on Friday. The Bears, still ranked 19th overall in Canada according to Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s CJHL rankings, lead the way in the 12-team league with a 20-8-0-1 record. At 41 points, they are Âżve points up on Yzerman Division-leading Pembroke Lumber Kings (17-9-1-1) and six up on three other clubs including Robinson Division rival Carleton Place (17-9-1-0).

The 73â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, who sit at the bottom of the standings, made things interesting when Jesse Lussier connected on the power play at the 11:13 mark. But goalie Jimmy Howe shut the door the rest of the way allowing the Bears to claim their 20th win of the season. Howe, who now leads the CCHL with a 1.96 goals against average and .933 save percentage, made 31 stops to record his seventh win of the year.

Their busy schedule continued this week with a home date with the Hawkesbury Hawks Tuesday night (Nov. 20) and the Lumber Kings in town this Friday at the Memorial Community Centre. Game time is 7:30 p.m. Bears 4 73â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1 A pair of goals from Yannick Crete in the third period (including an empty netter with nine seconds left) broke open a tight game in Kemptville Sunday night. After a scoreless opening period, league-leading scorer Chris Maniccia broke the ice with his 23rd goal of the season midway through the second, from Tyler Akeson and Connor McLaren. Ryan Eardley then made it 2-0 at 5:02 of the third, assisted by Nolan Trombetta and Daniele Disipio.


Tyler Akeson became a physical barrier against the Cornwall Coltsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; efforts to score last Thursday evening. Strength in offensive and defensive play allowed the Bears to take this game home as a 5-1 win.

Dufort leads McGill Redmen to their ninth win in a row EMC Sports - Vincent Dufort posted a â&#x20AC;&#x153;double-doubleâ&#x20AC;? as No.4-ranked McGill ran their win streak to nine games against CIS opponents with a 76-59 decision at UQAM in menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball, Saturday. It marked McGillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longest streak against CIS teams since winning nine in 200102, when they Âżnished with a 21-7 record overall, including a 12-3 mark in regular season play. The Redmen led UQAM from wire-to-wire, taking an 18-10 advantage after the Âżrst quarter and holding a 3225 margin at the half before breaking out with 26 points in the third quarter to emerge with a resounding 58-38 lead. Dufort, a 6-foot-5 shooting guard who is a former Smiths Falls RedHawk, scored 16 and pulled down a game-high 11 rebounds to go along with seven assists and a pair of steals. The Physical Education sophomore was good on six of 10 shots from the Âżeld, going two for three from the three-point range. He was also two for two in free-throw shooting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dufort did a good job out there in terms of an all-round, effective game,â&#x20AC;? said David DeAveiro, in his third season as head coach of the Redmen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He did a little bit of everything, making key shots and pulling down rebounds. He gave us a complete effort. The coached added: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really good to see how unselÂżsh our guys are and how hard they are playing for each other.â&#x20AC;? McGill, which had a 3432 edge in rebounds, shot an impressive 49.1 per cent from the Âżeld (28/57), 28.6 from the arc and 80.0 from the line (16/20). The Citadins shot 38.2, 40.0 and 72.2, respec-

tively. McGill (2-0) will travel across town to get their Âżrst crack at the Concordia Stingers (3-0) in a much anticipated showdown of undefeated teams on Nov. 24 at 4 p.m McGillâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home-opener against Bishopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s has been rescheduled from Nov. 28 to Nov. 29.

Raiders 2 Bears 1 In front of close to 800 fans at the Community Centre Friday night, the Bears had their eight-game home winning streak snapped by the defending champion Nepean Raiders in a tight, entertaining affair. Raiders all-star goalie Matt Zawadzki was outstanding on this night, making 39 saves to

steal a win from the high-Ă&#x20AC;ying Bears. All of the scoring was done in the opening 20 minutes with Kenneth Neil and Dalen Hedges chasing Bears starting goaltender Patrick Martin with a pair of goals by the 14:11 mark. Team captain Connor McLaren, who recently committed to Princeton University on full scholarship, brought the Bears back to within one goal at 18:36, from Eardley and Patrick Sexton. But despite Âżring 40 shots at the Raiders net, Zawadzki kept the puck out the rest of the way. Jimmy Howe, who came on in relief of Martin, was perfect over his 45-plus minutes, stopping all 23 shots he faced.

Police service stays the course in business plan community update

EMC News – In the ongoing ¿ght against crime the community’s most effective weapon is itself. That’s what a small crowd at last week’s Smiths Falls Police Service business plan meeting heard. “It takes a village to make a community safe,” said Karen Hallinan, Police Services Board chair. “We rely on the community to tell us what it is we need.” Encouraging residents who are uneasy about a situation they’ve witnessed to call the police was a key thread throughout the meeting. Those in attendance were reminded that every 9-1-1 call is answered by uniformed of¿cers, but residents who are concerned about something they can’t con¿rm can call the of¿ce line (613-283-0357) to speak with an of¿cer at any time. “We want to receive your calls,” mayor Dennis Staples said. This year’s business plan revamp is an update to the more exhaustive community outreach effort embarked on in 2009 where stakeholder groups were interviewed for feedback before the plan was developed. One of those groups was the Smiths Falls & District Center for Youth who attended the public session last week. Doris Marshall, executive director at the center encouraged the police to stop by the youth centre to say hi and become familiar with local youth beyond the more business calls during dances, etc.

Bears 5 Colts 1 The Bears’ special teams were front and centre in Cornwall last Thursday. Karson McCartney, Chris Maniccia and Yannick Crete each scored shorthanded and goalie Patrick Martin made 37 saves in the 5-1 win. Maniccia, the CCHL’s leading scorer with 55 points through 28 games, recorded his third hat trick of the year, scor-

“We would really welcome that and the opportunity to get to know them,” Marshall of said. In addition to this type of prevention work Smiths Falls of¿cers also respond to every 9-1-1 call that comes into the dispatch centre. During his update to the community, Chief Bob Dowdall was able to inform residents that the local police response time is approximately three minutes. “Which is awesome quite frankly. It’s something I’m proud of as should the community,’ chief Dowdall said. The force’s work in recording all their calls has provided valuable information like that shared above by the chief and was an outcome from the 2009 public feedback area. Through these recordings it’s been discovered that reported sexual assault is happening more often thanks to the success of prevention discussions and a social atmosphere that is more supportive of breaking this silence. When the Àoor was opened for questions from the public Ron Stronski of Queen Street asked the police if they would consider installing traf¿c light cameras particularly at Queen and Jasper and at Main and Beckwith streets. Dowdall expressed his view that traf¿c enforcement is the best deterrent, particularly when the most information traf¿c cameras take is licence plates, which tells you who owns the car but not necessarily who was driving.

Cornwall was not only 0 for 4 with the man advantage, they were actually a -3. The Bears were 1-5 on the power play. OVERTIME: • Bears play host to the Lumber Kings on Friday.

Dave Murphy reďŹ&#x201A;ects on his second year as face of police service By STACEY ROY

EMC News - Over the last year-and-a-half Const. Dave Murphy has served as the Smiths Falls Police Serviceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s living embodiment of its commitment to prevent crime â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as the Âżrst Community Services OfÂżcer (CSO). The new position was created last May when the Police Services Board decided it needed to do more to reach out to the community and provide valuable information on crime prevention and safety issues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Through education comes prevention. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the way I look at it,â&#x20AC;? said Murphy. The local police ofÂżcer offers his services to organiza-

Const. Dave Murphy tions and events to speak on critical topics like fraud and bullying to a variety of audiences. Over these many months Murphy has found the discussion heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had with youth to be valuable from the high school teachersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; perspective as it gives the positive message of the teaching staff another

voice of support. This type of outreach has always been available through the police service, but the position of CSO expands the number of events the police can accommodate and the chance that ofÂżcers wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be called away on a call. Murphy now specializes in CSO work, but continues to offer assistance to front line ofÂżcers, training and the crime unit when needed. In this way the position of CSO allows the service to have a point person for the community to contact and an individual within the force to retain information on such requests without removing front line staff from reaching out into the community as well.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;While he specializes in it, we expect all our ofÂżcers to participate in community service activities, such as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;adopt a schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and various presentations,â&#x20AC;? Staff Sgt. Rick Labelle said of the CSO role. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really blossomed into something that has become a real value to the police service.â&#x20AC;? Always changing with the needs of the community, Murphy couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say how his role as CSO will grow in the coming year. In fact, part of his role as CSO is to search out new topics of interest from the community and act on them. What he has learned since his appointment last year is the valuable information that

exists in the community and around the table at various community board meetings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I go to those places I always take information back,â&#x20AC;? Murphy said. Through his role as community boards and committee member, he has been able to build relationships with other organizations, which is critical in this new era of community policing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that every police service should have,â&#x20AC;? Murphy said. Labelle congratulated the CSO for his commitment to the new position and efforts in developing it into a role that has become recognized in the community and sought after.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;He has done an exceptional job with this position,â&#x20AC;? Labelle said. In addition to conducting presentations for school, service clubs, organizations, etc., Murphy also creates public service announcements around special prevention weeks such as back to school, winter driving, crime prevention week, etc. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re spending a lot more resources in terms of public education and community service,â&#x20AC;? Labelle said. This includes their work in maintaining the police website (, CSO position and Adopt A School program where ofÂżcers regularly visit a school to talk with staff and students on a casual basis.
