EMC News - Together Smiths Falls, a volunteer organization that’s brought us Movies Under the Stars and Music in the Park, is at it again with plans to light up Victoria Park next Christmas season with the introduction of the Smiths Falls Festival of Lights. The festival is proposed to run from Nov. 30, 2013 to Jan. 1, 2014 and will welcome residents and visitors free of charge to view the many illuminated displays and lights that will make Victoria Park sparkle. Plans at this time are to open the park nightly from 5 to 10 p.m. with special family-friendly activities taking place Friday and Saturday nights. This could include music, food concessions, a visit from Santa, horse-drawn wagon rides and a fireworks display on the final night. “We operate this festival to better our community by increasing tourism into our area

In the last two years Movies Under the Stars has helped 14 local charities and not for profits by donating more than $5,400 and welcoming 8,000 people to its weekly movie. “Our events and community spirit has become an asset to the Town of Smiths Falls and we hope to continue to be able to provide these free family friendly events for years to come,” Pankow said. To help them keep this promise Together Smiths Falls asked town council to continue its $7,000 of in-kind support while increasing its financial support and further finishing one special capital project. “We also request that the completion of the washrooms in Centennial Park be done,” Pankow said.

EMC News - Dec. 6 is the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women in Canada and tonight, the Lanark County Interval House is hosting a vigil tonight in Perth at Stewart Park starting at 6 p.m.

“This is a day to remember the women who were murdered at l’École Polytechnique in 1989,” said Brianne Luckasavitch, public education coordinator at Lanark County Interval House. “We will also honor the women of Lanark County who have been murdered by their abusers.”

LCIH will welcome Perth’s mayor John Fenik as well as Erin Lee Todd, who is the executive director of Lanark County Interval House. There will also be words of encouragement from an abused survivor from the community. Todd says the vigil will

be held at the band shell in the park where guests will be asked to form for a 6 p.m. greeting. “The candlelight vigil will begin approximately 6:30 p.m.,” she said. According to Todd, there have been 13 women and children in Lanark County

OPP challenges Ontarians to make holiday season a safe and sober one on roads EMC news - With Ontarians starting to head out for social outings in celebration of the upcoming holiday season, the OPP is pulling out all stops to take impaired drivers off roads between now and the new year. The OPP is conducting its annual Festive RIDE campaign until Jan. 2, and people

are being reminded that RIDE stops will be very visible throughout the campaign. According to the OPP, 61 people have died in alcoholrelated motor vehicle collisions within OPP jurisdiction so far this year. T his number is up by more than 17 per cent when compared to the 52 people who

lost their lives in impaired driving collisions by this time last year (2011) and the OPP is taking this increase in fatalities seriously. The OPP’s highway safety division commander said last year’s numbers were up over the previous RIDE season. “People can expect to see us ramp up our enforcement

over the holidays to put a stop to this life-threatening driving behaviour,” said Chief Supt. Don Bell in a press release. The OPP invites members of the public to join them on Facebook to share their views about impaired driving and the OPP’s Festive RIDE campaign.

whose lives ended in an act of gender-based violence that shocked the nation, Dec. 6 represents an opportunity for Canadians to reflect on the phenomenon of violence against women in our society. It is also an opportunity to consider the women and girls for whom violence is a daily reality, and to remember those who have died as a result of gender-based violence. And finally, it is a day on which communities can consider concrete actions to eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls.

EMC News - The Classroom Portal Expansion has taken the top prize at Applied Research Day 10.2! “It is an honour to take home first place at Applied Research Day,” says Nitec President Malcolm McDowell. “We had many worthy competitors today and wish them continued success. The Classroom Portal Expansion will enhance the communication between Algonquin College faculty and their students and we were proud to play a role in its development. Our thanks to Algonquin College for hosting this competition, and to the Office of Applied Research and Innovation for their assistance in launching this project.” The Classroom Portal Expansion came in first out of the 19 projects which competed in the thrice annual Applied Research and Innovation competition. It is an application which professors can use to easily and remotely post class changes and other information to a screen near the door of their classrooms. An Interpretive Book of the Indigenous Tree and Shrub species in the Ottawa Valley, which was created for the Algonquin Way Cultural Centre in Pembroke, finished second, while a Geological Field Data Collection system developed for Natural Resources Canada rounded out the top three. “Applied Research connects students, faculty, entrepreneurs and established organizations to build businesses that are equipped for success,” says Dr. Mark Hoddenbagh, Director, Applied Research and Innovation at Algonquin College. “The 19 projects that were on display today will create local jobs, strengthen the economy, and solve problems through innovation and creative new thinking.

A close-up of the wreckage after the Almonte train wreck on Dec. 27, 1942.

Remembering the Almonte Train Wreck 70 years later By TIFFANY LEPACK tlepack@perfprint.ca

EMC Lifestyle - The Almonte Gazette was on the scene 70 years ago recording the history of the Almonte train wreck. It reported the details of what then was considered the second worst railway disaster in the history of Canadian railroading on Dec. 27, 1942. The wreck killed 36 people and injured more than 200; the current memorial in Almonte has the names of 39

deceased as three more died after the crash. The Gazette sets the scene of the aftermath: “The condition of many of the victims was horrible in the extreme, some of them being mutilated beyond description. The injured suffered all sorts of dreadful wounds including fractures where the bone had burst through the flesh; body wounds and head wounds that cannot be described.” Crash investigated The scene was the result of

a crash between the Canadian Pacific Railway Ottawa Valley Local Train – which started in Pembroke, and was crowded with Christmas holiday travellers – and a troop train loaded with soldiers from across the country headed to Halifax for overseas duty. The Gazette followed the inquest closely in the weeks after the crash. The first witness was Joseph Sauve who

was an engineer on the local that fateful night. He admitted that he was running late as it had taken 42 minutes to come from Arnprior to Almonte when it should have taken 28 minutes. “But the weather was bad and the traffic heavy. There was a little trouble with the engine as a result of a leaking flue. This developed after the train left Cobden on the down journey and it did not get any worse from that time on,” quoted The Gazette. He also stated that he did not know the troop train was

coming behind him. It was also uncovered that there was no way to notify the troop train at Pakenham because there was no operator on duty at night. Interest of the inquest was ‘quickened’ when word was received that John C. Howard, the 64 year-old Conductor who had been in charge of the troop train that night, tragically died. “He committed suicide by drowning himself in the Rideau River at Smiths Falls…his case was particularly pathetic as he leaves an invalid wife.” The Gazette published his suicide note and had interviewed his son Delmar.

“He was afraid an attempt was being made to pin it on him.” The conductor on the Local, M.P. McConnell of Ottawa, testified that he left Petawawa at 5:35 p.m. on time and he also revealed he did not know the troop train was behind him. The troop train was considered an extra train and was held at Arnprior to make the 20-minute block time that was required in between trains. This miscommunication between the stations and the trains caused the ultimate demise to three train cars and the 36 people. “Witnesses of the accident hastened to do what they

could for the unfortunates trapped under the debris of the coaches,” stated The Gazette. “The fire siren was sounded and members of the brigade and those spectators, who always attended fires, rushed to the scene… Outside of a bad shaking up there were no casualties in the coaches forward of the three that had been crushed by the gigantic locomotive.” A verdict in the inquest came back on Jan. 9 by a coroner’s jury at the Almonte Town Hall on the Saturday afternoon. “The jury placed the responsibility for the disaster squarely on the shoulders of

the Canadian Pacific Railway Company and made a number of recommendations which, if carried out, are calculated to prevent a recurrence of such an accident as happened here.” Injured Victims were rushed to the nearby O’Brien Theatre, the Town Hall, private homes and the Rosamond Memorial Hospital. Three local doctors: J.K. Kelly, J.F. Dunn and A.A. Metcalfe were helped by ‘medical men’ from local towns including John McEwen, C.R. MacDowall and J.A. Johnston from Carleton Place, Dr. W.W Buttle from Pakenham, Dr. Robert Mc-

Creary and Dr. Box from Arnprior and Doctors Hogan, Kerfoot, Walker and Ferguson from Smiths Falls. Clergymen of Almonte were at the scene early and gave the last rites to those who required it. Town Hall became a morgue with 30 deceased being placed in the basement. Bodies were also laid in the council chambers.

tea and coffee to the injured, the firemen who did a great service, to the soldiers and all those participating in the work of the rescue.” One local lady gave a very practical gift to the injured as she brought several bottles of liquor to the town hall. The Gazette later received a letter of appreciation from a young lady in Ottawa who had stayed at Dr. Joseph Teich’s home. She sent back the coats that she had used and thanked him for all he did. “I hope your nerves didn’t suffer too much after that episode and also hope you didn’t have too much work cleaning up the house afterwards… I suppose Almonte’s atmosphere is still pretty morbid. Those things are hard to forget, but I do hope that before long you will all be quite happy and carefree once more.” She also enclosed coffee and sugar as she thought their rations must be ‘nigh exhaustion.’

Doreen Wilson, volunteer manager of the North Lanark Regional Museum, thinks it is important to remember this very significant event in Almonte’s history. “It’s very much the history and lifestyle of years gone by,” said Wilson. “The historical society wanted to keep the history alive. It’s a lot of history and if someone doesn’t record it, it’s lost history.” Check out next week’s edition for an interview with the last known survivor of the train wreck, Ed Muldoon, who grew up in Fitzroy Harbour, boarded the train in Arnprior.

Algonquin, Queen’s and Carleton partner for solar project

Are you new to the neighbourhood? Had a baby? Planning a wedding? We have free gifts and information for you.

“The top 5 would be great...but we want to win.� JACOB MORGAN TEAM ONTARIO

“We learned of the [project’s] acceptance the last week of January [2012], and had a meeting the next day,� Morgan said, adding that working on the Decathlon project is an honour and gives him “the chance to work at a higher level on chain of command than I would be able to.� TO named their project design “ECHO,� a play on the phrase “Ecological Home.� The ECHO home is currently under construction at the Algonquin College Perth Campus. The 960 square foot bungalow was designed to house a couple with one child and will feature an exostructure where solar panels will be mounted. With an eye towards transportability, the home is a two piece modular construction. The ECHO home will use a unique method of storing the solar energy gathered from the solar panels. Morgan explained TO decided to use water to store the electricity, as opposed to batteries as is most commonly used for electrical storage, claiming, “solar power stored in hot water can release more slowly and store more energy.� Other unique features include the use of Panasonic’s innovative Vacuum Insulated Panels (VIP) which are cur-

Students from Algonquin College’s Advanced Housing Program have been working on the construction of the ECHO home since September. The project is expected to be completed in April 2013. Morgan feels they could be at a disadvantage because this is their first entry in the competition and they will be competing against other schools that have had multiple entries, and more experience with the competition. Despite the challenges for winning the competition, Morgan said he feels good about their chances. He reiterated TO’s goal: “We want to create an eco-friendly, sustainable house to build on in the future. We’re not trying to reinvent the wheel; we’re taking what people have done in the past and built on it.â€? “The top 5 would be great,â€? he added, â€œâ€Śbut we want to win.â€? Construction on ECHO is expected to be completed in April 2013, following which it will be showcased at the Algonquin College Perth Campus before beginning its trek across the continent.

rently only available commercially and the specially designed integrated mechanical system. Each of Panasonic’s halfinch insulation panels has a rating of R30 and the ECHO home uses two-half inch panels in addition to other insulation. When complete, the walls in ECHO home will have a minimum R-value of 60 while the roof will be a minimum R70. Typical construction in Ontario is an R28 value for walled construction and R50 for a roof. Morgan called the ventilation system used in the home “predictive.� “It’s a little smarter than we are,� he laughed, “We needed a good ventilation system to handle the insulation.� When completed, the total cost for the project will be approximately one million dollars, with the transport to California and back costing roughly $200,000. So far Team Ontario’s Business Manager has worked to raise more than $400,000 and there have been other in-kind donations of materials and insulation, including a donation of over $54,000 from Panasonic in insulation. Each participating institution has also made contributions. Morgan will be one of the only TO members who will be present for the duration of the event in California. As Construction Manager, he will be responsible for the set up and take down of the home and giving tours to explain aspects of the construction. He will also be traveling with the home as it makes its way on a flat bed trailer from Canada to California. Morgan explained that Team Ontario has several advantages and disadvantages weighing against it. According to Morgan, the team’s composition of representatives from three different institutions is unique. In addition, Morgan added, Algonquin College is essentially a subcontractor for the build of the home, making it literally a home that can be built by students.

Only one other Canadian province, Alberta, is represented in the competition; this will mark the University of Alberta’s third entry in the Decathlon. “The fact that we got in was a huge accomplishment,� Morgan stressed. Preparing for the Solar Decathlon takes months of work and preparation. Morgan explained that every executive member has been putting in thirty to forty hours a week over and above their school commitments.

What started as a long shot for entry into a global competition has turned into the opportunity of a lifetime for students from Algonquin College, Queen’s, and Carleton Universities. Student representatives from the three institutions have partnered to form “Team Ontario,� embarking on a challenge to create a “net zero� structure for entry in the Solar Decathlon in California in 2013. The Solar Decathlon is a United States Department of Energy (DOE) biennial competition held in California. Between Oct. 3 and Oct. 13, 2013, the DOE will host 20 collegiate teams from around the world as they compete to design, build and operate solar powered houses that are simultaneously cost effective, energy efficient and aesthetically appealing. The winner of the competition will be the team that best blends affordability, consumer appeal and design excellence with optimal energy production and maximum efficiency. The purpose of the event is to demonstrate that net zero solar homes are not only possible, but can be affordable and attractive. A net zero home is a home that consumes as much energy as it creates. Team Ontario (TO) consists of representatives from Algonquin College, Carleton University and Queen’s University. It is represented by a board of six executive members and three faculty advisors. The executive members are comprised of students from all fields of study, including an Architect Manager, Business Manager, Construction Manager, Project Manager, Engineer Manager and Systems Coordinator. Jacob Morgan, Team Ontario Construction Manager and second year Algonquin College Advanced Housing student, explained the concept for the project began several years ago as a fourth year engineering project at Queen’s University. An application was drafted for the 2011 Solar Decathlon, submitted, but ultimately rejected when it ranked 24th out of 150 entries to the competition. Only the top 20 entries are accepted for the competition. When applications reopened for the 2013 Decathlon, the Queen’s University application was “tweaked� and submitted for consideration, and ultimately, accep-

Family fun remembered fondly

Stay safe on roads this holiday season

EMC Sports - This picture of the Barr family ball team was taken in 1962 during the Village of Lanark’s centennial celebrations at Clyde Memorial Ball Park. Fifty years later, two brothers remain, Dan and Glen. Pictured (back, left to right) in the photo are: Leonard, Dewey, Jack, Ronald, Craig. Donnie, Dan, Glen, and Gradon are in front. There were 14 children in the family, including, but not pictured: Harris and Pete, Dorothy, Ruth and Lulu. The brothers played the Bingleys in a ball game that day. Our thanks to Glen Barr for sharing this family memory with the EMC. Submitted photo

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Caring community gives to children DEAR EDITOR: On behalf of Operation Christmas Child, I want to express my sincere thanks to all those who participated in any way during this year’s campaign. Special thanks to Asbury Free Methodist Church and all the volunteers who so freely gave of their time. Thanks to all the businesses that donated money and supplies so generously thus enabling us to fill and ship many more boxes. Thanks to the Perth Salvation Army Store, McMartin House and K.W Outdoor Power Sales for acting as pick-up and drop-off sites for the boxes this year. The children who receive these boxes live in some of the poorest surroundings in the world. Many spend time daily going to garbage dumps to find enough food to survive another day. They are the forgotten victims of war,

weather-related disasters, poverty and disease. Destitute families fight day by day to feed their children and provide them with the barest necessities but are never able to provide them with any extras. In most of these countries there is no help for them and the boxes are well received as they bring such incredible joy to their little ones. Once again, we can take a moment this Christmas season and imagine the sheer joy and happiness children all over the world will experience as they open the little box that each of you has so lovingly prepared. What better way to enjoy the true meaning of Christmas. Thank you once again and may you and your families have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Vivian Buchanan Perth

EMC Editorial – While Christmas parties and friendly get togethers have already begun for this “festive” season, the message remains the same. Don’t drink and drive – stay alive. Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere (RIDE) programs will be and have already started across the province. The Ontario Provincial Police as well as local police departments, including the Perth and Smiths Falls police services, undertake this initiative every year to check for impaired drivers on roadways. There are so many options out there for those who choose to have a beverage or two, options to get them home safely. Take a cab or have a designated driver take you home. Really there is no safe limit for alcoholic intake, just because you have only had one or two doesn’t necessarily mean that hasn’t put you over the limit, or that you aren’t a risk on the roads. The RIDE campaign originally began in 1977 in Etobicoke and worked its way across the province. The campaign involves police spot checks, stopping vehicles and checking drivers for signs of impairment. Officers across the province dedicate their time and energy to the program, one that last year, in OPP jurisdiction, saw 551 persons issued warn range suspensions and 652 people charged with impaired, over 80 or refusal. Why are the numbers still so high? Not everyone it appears is getting the message. It is a message which really should be considered all year round, not just around the holiday. When getting behind the wheel of your car, truck or whatever vehicle you may be driving – remember it is a huge piece of machinery, a “monster” as one OPP officer once described it. Ensure you are handling it with care, keeping in mind your own safety and the safety of others you may come across on any road or street. Mothers Against Drunk Driving Canada estimates that in 2009 a minimum of 1,074 fatalities in motor vehicle crashes were impairment-related. Keep the holidays festive. Either have those few drinks and find an alternative way home, or don’t drink and be a designated driver. Ensure you make the right choice for yourself, passengers you may have and for all others on the road.

Turkey Fair day was a make or break time for family EMC Lifestyle – Turkey Fair day. Once a year, farmers from far and wide converged on the town of Renfrew for what they all hoped would be a prosperous day. Ideally, all the fowl would be sold, and that would mean a brighter Christmas at a time when money was as scarce as hens’ teeth. Of course it wasn’t only turkeys that were taken into town: geese, eggs, butter, fresh cream, and always on our big flat-bottomed sleigh, would be Mother’s sticky buns, which were usually the first to be sold. Turkey Fair day was also on a Saturday, so there were many hands to help with getting everything loaded on the sleigh, preparing a hearty lunch and making sure everyone had gone to the outhouse at the last minute, and was well wrapped up for the long, freezing day ahead. There was no sleeping in on turkey fair day. We were roused before dawn, because

Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

Father wanted to claim a good spot on the main street. Sales depended on where you parked the sleigh. Too far down Raglan, in either direction, meant you would be lucky to get rid of everything you had brought in from Northcote. The people who lived in town weren’t about to walk beyond the main business core. Once we claimed our spot, Father would unhitch the team and walk it down to the drive shed at the south end of town, and we were ready for business. The stores opened early that day, which delighted my sister Audrey and me, because we didn’t want to hang around the sleigh… we wanted to start at one end of the street,

and work our way through every store. We went into stores we would never dream of entering any other time. Who could afford a store like Frasers? Just the rich people of Renfrew, that’s who. And so Audrey and I would go in, and the store always smelled of lemons for some reason, and of the newness of clothes, and there was always a big bowl of peppermints on the counter by each register. These candies were little round discs, dusty with peppermint powder and my sister and I always grabbed one each after we had circled the store looking at the beautiful clothes. At the “rich people’s stores,” as Audrey and I called them, they seemed to know we

weren’t there to buy anything, because no one ever came up to us to offer help. That suited us just fine. By the time noon hour rolled around, we were ready for lunch, and ready to head over to the CPR station to go to the bathroom. I never saw Mother or Father eat. And I have no idea if they did, but we five kids were each handed a brown paper bag (saved of course from a purchase at Briscoe’s General Store) just as the town clock struck the noon hour. Through the generosity of the Chinese Restaurant, we were allowed to eat our lunch in one of the booths inside where it was warm. Good people, Mother called them. After we had eaten our plain jelly sandwich, we were more than ready to visit the station to use its facility. This was the one point in the day I dreaded. I’m sure it was my imagination, but I always thought the station master didn’t approve of us farm

children coming in just to use the bathroom. He wore a cap with a green celluloid piece in the front, and he peered out from under it, and scowled. We tried to be as quiet as possible, and we stomped the snow off our feet when we went in, so as not to leave a wet mark on the floor. The whole place was painted a sickly green, and smelled of strong disinfectant, and Audrey and I used the bathroom as quickly as possible, so that we could head back to the main street. My sister always went to the counter and said thank you, but the station agent never raised his head. That afternoon, Turkey Fair day was coming to an end. I was too scared to ask Mother if everything she had brought in on the sleigh had sold. But I could usually tell from the look on her face. Everett would be sent to bring the horses from the drive shed, and Father would hitch them up to the sleigh, and we would pile onto the blankets,

They would be covered with white flour bag sheets at the start of the day so that everything offered for sale would look its best and look meticulously clean. Audrey would fold up the sheets, and with Mother and Father on the one seat on the sleigh, and we five crowded onto the bed, we would head out for Northcote. It didn’t take long for the sun to fade, and by the time we reached the Northcote Side Road the daylight would be gone. Father would light a lantern and hang it on the post at the front of the sleigh. Only then would Mother tell us what kind of day it had been. If it was a good one, we would sing all the way home. If things hadn’t gone as well as expected, we were all very quiet. But whatever was realized at Turkey Fair day, it was enough to tide us over for another spell… and Mother would say, “It’s more than we had yesterday.”

Volunteer driver receives dedication award for outstanding service By GENA GIBSON Canadian Cancer Society

EMC News - Maurice (Moe) Marshall was recently awarded the Celebrating Dedication Award to recognize his outstanding efforts as a Canadian Cancer Society Volunteer Driver. His good nature, dedication and genuine concern for people going through cancer treatment is exceptional. He goes well above and beyond anything ever asked of him, even getting up at 3:00 am to drive a client to Toronto several times. Although driving such a distance is a rare request for Society volunteers, Moe was happy to help out. Marshall got involved eight years ago when he retired and had some time on his hands. He got into a discussion with a friend about the Canadian Cancer Society’s transportation program. The discussion spurred Marshall to look into the program, and volunteer as a driver for patients who need to attend cancer treatments. That was almost eight years ago, and Marshall still regularly drives cancer patients to Kingston, Ottawa, and occasionally Toronto. “I don’t think I was even actually looking for something to do,” he said. “We had a discussion, and I enjoy driving.” “I said ‘Well, here’s a chance to do something

good….” His dedication earned him recognition recently from the Lanark, Leeds and Grenville unit of the Canadian Cancer Society. “I’ve really enjoyed being able to help, and also I’ve enjoyed the people,” Marshall stressed. “A lot of the people, I know – Brockville isn’t a huge town.” He said he was surprised by the recognition and plaque from the Society. “I don’t know that I was doing anything (special),” he admitted. Marshall said potential drivers need to realize that patience is important, as few of the drives last only a few minutes. He usually stays at the hospital during the clients’ treatments, although sometimes he will run errands if the treatments last a few hours. “I enjoy that time just meeting people (at the hospital),” he admitted. Marshall has driven everyone from young children with their parents to very elderly patients. “What I’ve found with 99.9 per cent of them is that they’re extremely positive,” he said. “Sure, they have sad moments, but it really doesn’t seem to matter what stage of cancer (they have) – they’re upbeat and full of hope.” He said some patients prefer not to talk during the drives, while others like to chat.

Robina Thomas, Office Coordinator with the Lanark, Leeds & Grenville Unit of the Canadian Cancer Society, presents Moe Marshall with the Dedication Award. “I feel them out and let them decide the course of the conversation,” he explained. Over the last couple of years, Marshall has slowed down in his volunteer drives due to back problems and other physical issues. In the early years, he said, Brockville also had only three drivers, so he would find himself driving a patient to Kingston in the morning and Ottawa in the afternoon of the same day.

“One of the things I never like to do is say no,” he admitted. The people have kept him driving, and he has seen dedication up close. “It’s the experience and the interaction with the clients – and also the staff in the cancer units there,” he said. “I’ve never seen a more dedicated group of individuals. “They’re all very caring people.”

Wild food on the menu for land trust conservancy By HILARY BARRETT

Submitted photo

Guests enjoyed a banquet in Perth recently with delicacies of the wild on the menu. which was saved for the banquet. Before dinner, guests were served various wild game hors d’oeuvres, garnished with wild fruit sauces and handed round by the volunteer servers. During the dinner, Fischl spoke about the club and introduced Kafrissen and the sous chefs who explained the ingredients used in each course as it was served. The first dish was wild mushroom soup, served with black walnut buns – and therein lies

a story. One club member patiently gathered a bag of walnuts every other day for a month which Fischl collected and, with some helpers, bashed with a hammer so they could pick out the nutmeat. Another member caught the bass for the next course, absolutely delicious quenelles garnished with fiddleheads and other wild greens. Tony Durant provided much of the wild fruit and conserves, including the ingredients of the mid-meal fruit sorbet, and many other

people contributed to the remaining courses. Venison tourtière with a sauce made from local tomatoes followed the sorbet. Not every ingredient was wild – but all were local. Next came moose and wild rice casserole, served with baby milkweed pods washed down with sumac tea. The finale was a medley of wild fruits in maple syrup. Volunteers not only provided the ingredients, but helped with food preparation, sold tickets, served and cleared

up. Barb Gibson was the main organizer of these aspects of the banquet. “All in all the success of the Wild Food Dinner reflects the philosophy of the Lanark Wild Food Club, which is to share knowledge, fellowship – and food – with those interested in wild game, fish, plant edibles and anything from nature,” Fischl said. Door prizes and a silent auction, organized by Mary Vandenhoff of the MMLTC, added to the fun and contrib-

uted to the funds the club was able to give the trust, whose purpose is to help landowners protect ecologically valuable areas for generations to come. The MMLTC is a nonprofit charitable organization. Howard Clifford, a director of both the Wild Food Club and the MMLTC, says he believes a love of wilderness is good for the body, mind and soul, and the activities put on by the Wild Food Club are a “delightful way for children and older people to come to a deeper understanding and appreciation of nature.” He is co-owner of cliffLAND, the spectacular 1,250 acre wilderness property, which was the first conservation easement for the MMLTC, and is pleased to share his joy in the property with all: from the under-fives to the over-eighties – several of whom climbed Blueberry Mountain this fall. “What both the Wild Food Club and the Land Trust have in common is a passion for the outdoors,” Clifford says, “and a desire to conserve it for future generations”.

EMC News – More than $4,000 was raised for the Mississippi Madawaska Land Trust Conservancy last month during the wild food banquet and silent auction held at the Lions Club in Perth Nov. 24. Peter Fischl, president of the Lanark Wild Food Club, presented a cheque for $4,165.94 to Howard Clifford of the Mississippi Madawaska Land Trust Conservancy (MMLTC). How on earth did the Lanark Wild Food Club, founded less than a year ago, provide a fabulous seven-course meal of wild food for 160 people? With a lot of effort by a great many club members who hunted, fished and gathered the ingredients from all over Lanark County over several months. A key volunteer was Erik Kafrissen the banquet chef and co-star of the Heeb and Rob Show, a wild cookery show on the Hunting and Fishing TV network. “If you know what you’re looking for its free for the taking – there’s a million types of mushrooms and all sorts of plants,” Kafrissen said. He led a foraging walk in June, and put 50 foragers to work gathering wild sumac tips, cattails, milkweed and digging up burdock – some of

Unique program helps vets transition to civilian life with $500,000 financial boost EMC News - The only program of its kind in Canada that assists veterans in their transition back to civilian life has received the full endorsement for national expansion from Royal Canadian Legion along with $500,000 spread over the next two years. Gordon Moore, the Dominion president of The Royal Canadian Legion, and Tim Laidler, executive director, Veterans Transition Network announced the partnership recently at Legion House. Originally established in 1997 by the University of British Columbia as the Veterans Transition Program with funding from the Legion BC/ Yukon Command, the free program addresses the invisible wounds of service personnel to help them recover and regain a healthy, full life. “The University of Brit-

ish Columbia’s pilot Veterans Transition Program involved some 275 veterans and has proven to decrease depression and trauma and boost selfesteem – three of the primary barriers to making a success-

ful transition to civilian life,” says Moore. “The Legion is satisfied with the merits of the program at the local level and would now like to help UBC expand this program to meet the growing need for transition support for all CF veterans. Any attempt at a national

program delivery requires funds to increase awareness, advocacy and train more paraprofessionals across the country; a key role the Legion is proud to play,” says Moore. “Soldiers returning from service face complex issues and require multiple layers of support. “We are grateful to the Legion for helping make the Veterans Transition Program available across Canada,” says Tim Laidler, Executive Director of the Veterans Transition Network, the nonprofit organization formed at UBC that will administer the Veterans Transition Program. “This is one of the best examples of the community, postsecondary and troops working together to provide an established treatment program that will help all veterans.”

A home is more than just four walls and a ceiling clist or handyman who likes to do his thing at the crack of dawn. If you have children, you will probably want your home to be near a school, public park or day care. You might also want to be located near

public transportation with ample parking space if you have to commute to work each day. Other nearby services you may want to look for include a police station and fire hall, which will lower the cost of home insurance.

NEW PRICE

So before making a bid on a home, take a good look at what surrounds it. You might even want to visit the area at different times of the day in order to get an earful of what types of noise and activity are typical for the area.

When you buy a home, you are buying a living environment that extends beyond the limits of your property. This environment includes all the services, businesses, neighbouring homes, schools and public spaces that surround you. It even includes streets, parks and power lines! That’s why it is important to consider what is outside the home as much as what is inside it. Do you want to be located next to the industrial area where you will be working? Do you want to be conveniently located next to a major highway? But what about the noise and pollution that come with them? Perhaps you like the convenience of being close to a school, shopping mall or good restaurants. But how close is too close? Sometimes you can be close to these conveniences but still find ways to have privacy and tranquility. Having large, mature trees on your property is one way to block out noise. It’s also worth learning about the habits of your future neighbours. Perhaps one of them is an avid motorcy-

The information we gather from stakeholders during these consultations will be used to create recommendations that respond to what our communities need.� The requirements for the local plans include assessing the community’s current and future housing and homeless needs, setting objectives and targets to meet these needs and describing how the objectives and targets will be met and how progress will be measured. “We hope those who at-

tend the consultations will help us by considering what they see as the major housing challenges in the county and, for each of those challenges, how we can make it better and who should be working on it,� Ms. Grey said. “Another important factor in the planning process is consideration of what resources we currently have in the community and how we can best use existing programs and services in the 10-year plan.� She notes affordability can have different definitions, and there is a range of different types of housing to consider. Demographics, employment and other trends are also factors. Five community meetings are planned so far, including Dec. 3 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Lanark Highlands Township Office (75 George St., Lanark), Dec. 3 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. upstairs at the Carleton

Place Arena (75 Neelin St., Carleton Place), Dec. 4 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Smiths Falls Legion (77 Beckwith St. N., Smiths Falls), Dec. 4 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the County Administration Building (99 Christie Lake Rd., Perth) and Dec. 6 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Almonte Old Town Hall (14 Bridge St., Almonte). As part of the requirement to address provincial interests, the county ensured it consults with specific parties, such as victims of domestic violence, persons with disabilities (for accessible housing) and Aboriginal persons living off reserve. Once complete, the plan must be reviewed every five years. “Our vision is to have a county where residents have access to safe and healthy homes that help to build strong, local communities,� said County Warden John Gemmell (Perth Deputy May-

or). “We want to hear from residents and service providers in order to develop the most comprehensive plan possible so that we know where there are gaps in service and can set goals to address them. It will incorporate the provincial requirements into a practical document that has a local flavour.� Further meetings will be held in the spring, and input from individuals or organizations is welcomed at any time. In the event of bad weather resulting in school bus cancellations, the scheduled meetings will also be cancelled. For more information or to provide input, contact Ms. Grey at 1-888-952-6275, ext. 2401. Submitted by Lanark County Social ServicesSubmitted by Lanark County Social Services

EMC News – Thirty-six Grades 7 to 12 students from across the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) attended the Indspire Conference in Montreal on Nov. 6. The conference, created for Indigenous youth, focused on future career opportunities. Approximately 450 students attended from across Canada from as far as the Northwest Territories and New Brunswick. Students could attend five workshops which helped them learn about a number of careers in media arts, television, health, banking, security, technology, the Canadian Forces/Navy, and many more. Students also learned about post-secondary opportunities. In addition, the conference featured exciting entertainment by two traditional hoop dancers, two Innu throat singers, a traditional Haudenosaunee dance troupe, as well as music by DJ Mad Eskimo. Bill Montgomery, UCDSB Aboriginal Education program resource teacher said two students won two of 10 laptop computers given away at the conference – Mikayla Prue of Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute, and Lacey Jacobs of Cornwall Collegiate and Vocational School. “Each student took something away from the conference,” said Montgomery. “It was high-energy, and the students really enjoyed it.”

Nowosad retires from club EMC News - After 22.5 years, Mike Nowosad is retiring from the helm of 4-H Canada. A long time dedicated employee, working closely with both the national 4-H Council Board of Directors and the 4-H Foundation Trustees, Nowosad played a key role in shaping the national program over his time with the organization. Under his tenure the long term ‘Measures of Success’ report measuring the impact and value of 4-H across Canada was commissioned and repeated; a national 4-H resource development and sharing network was implemented; and risk management processes and initiatives were put in place to ensure the organization was meeting the needs of its clients and members. “Mike Nowosad made a major contribution to 4-H in Canada,” says Rob Black, president of the Canadian 4-H Council. “In recent years he

4-H News was instrumental in moving the organization to a governance model of leadership and undertaking a collaborative initiative nationally to define what our organization will stand for over the next 100 years,” establishing and cultivating a network of contacts and collaborative working relationships with the agricultural industry, government and stakeholders across Canada and beyond. “Mike has been a friend of everyone directly and indirectly involved with 4-H for many years”. In 2013, 4-H will celebrate its 100th anniversary in Canada. “4-H has a long-standing tradition of encouraging youth leadership, raising awareness of agriculture and strengthening communities,” says Black. “As we begin our second century of youth leadership, we’ll

be seeking a leader that can build upon this strong foundation.” The Canadian 4-H Council will conduct a nationwide search to find the CEO to lead the national organization. The Council hopes to have the new CEO in place sometime in the New Year. About 4-H Canada Beginning in Roland, Manitoba in 1913, 4-H is one of the country’s longest-running and most respected youth organizations. 4-H provides opportunities for Canada’s youth to explore, learn, and discover while expanding their horizons. More than 8,000 trained volunteer leaders help more than 26,000 4-H members develop self-confidence and learn a wide variety of skills through hands-on project work from Newfoundland and Labrador to British Columbia.

Sure, you should have been tax-planning all year (and every year, for that matter) but even if you were otherwise occupied in 2012, you still have time to follow the 3D tax-saving strategy. 1. DEDUCT To reduce your tax bill, make full use of your tax deductions and tax credits. Tax deductions • Check out all the deductions that apply to you including: o Child care expenses o Spousal Support o Tradesperson tool expense • Take full advantage of your RRSP deduction by making your maximum contributions to your RRSP eligible investments. • Business owners: Purchase capital assets and provide taxfree gifts for employees before year-end. • Self-employed: If you’re claiming the capital cost allowance (CCA) on depreciable assets, buy them before year end to speed-up tax writeoffs. Tax credits • Pool medical expenses on the return of the lower earning spouse. Travel medical insurance also counts as a medical expense. • Pool charitable donations or carry them forward up to five

4-H News sight in rural and suburban areas in Ontario and Manitoba, and have a tradition of enthusiastically giving back to the communities that they serve. 4-H represents a good opportunity to give back, and for the past two years of this partnership, we are thankful that they are choosing to give back to 4-H.” “TSC Stores is proud to partner with 4-H in this initiative,” said Amy DuGas, associate marketing manager at TSC Stores. “TSC has been a part of rural towns and communities for over 45 years, and this is an incredible opportunity to help support the youth in those rural communities.”

The 4-H clovers will appear in TSC stores from Nov. 30 to Dec. 12. Clovers will be displayed in-store, and all proceeds will go directly to 4-H initiatives. To learn more about TSC Stores, as well as store locations, visit www.tscstores.com. 4-H is one of Canada’s longest-running youth leadership organizations. With the motto of “Learn to Do by Doing,” 4-H has been helping youth develop leadership and life skills since 1913. More information about 4-H in Canada can be found at www.4-h-canada.ca. Submitted by 4-H Ontario.

Manage Your Money years to rise above the annual $200 threshold that increases your credit. • Use the spousal credit for the higher-earning spouse. • Review all the credits that might apply to you including these: o moving expense o children’s fitness o tuition, education and textbook o pension income o public transit pass o first time homebuyer o political contributions 2. DEFER • Contribute to a Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) eligible investments. The contribution isn’t tax deductible but money and growth earned on investments held within your TFSA are tax-free and so are withdrawals made at any time for any purpose. • Considering selling investments with capital gains? Delay the sale until 2013 to defer taxation. Taxes on the gain would only be payable by April 2013 instead of April 2012. • If you have money-losing investments, sell them by the December 31 to create capital losses that can offset capital

gains. 3. DIVIDE • If you’re turning 71 this year, you must wind up your RRSP and take the cash (poor choice) or transfer the funds to investments held within a Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF) or annuity (much better choice). If you have earned income, you can continue making contributions to a spousal plan until your spouse reaches 71. Here’s another way to save on taxes and fine-tune your financial plan: Talk to your professional advisor before the taxfiling deadline to be certain you make the most of every tax-reduction strategy.

Answer: â&#x20AC;&#x153;No, but if you hum a few barsâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;? An old joke, but very appropriate as tickets are about to go on sale for the 2013 edition of the popular music series Songs From the Valley. A ticket to the three-concert series is a musical gift that keeps on giving right into the spring of next year. And this year, the musicians youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll hear are more exciting than ever! Now in its third year, Songs From the Valley is a collaboration between Perthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Studio Theatre and the Stewart Park Festival, showcasing the Ot-

tawa Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very best musicians. The 2013 series is being dubbed â&#x20AC;&#x153;Strings & Thingsâ&#x20AC;?, with a unique musician from outside the Valley added to the mix. On Feb. 2, world beat violinist/composer Jaron Freeman-Fox takes the stage, dancing the fine line between â&#x20AC;&#x153;the beautiful and the ridiculousâ&#x20AC;?, while redefining what the violin can do. Jaron is a protege of the late violin pioneer Oliver Shroer, and he plays his mentorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fiddles while wearing Oliverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shoes on stage. This unbelievable showman has wowed the Westport Music Festival with his five-piece band The Oppo-

May 4 weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll welcome a Kitchen Party hosted by Smokey Rose and Friends (Darlene Thibault, Lee Hodgkinson, Ed Ashton)

with some wonderful special guests. Almonteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brad Scott will share his pickinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; prowess, while the amazing young Henry Norwood will sing a few tunes. Veterans Harry Adrain, Judi Moffat and Barry Munroe will also share their talents for a foot-stompinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; great time.

Young Ontario adults more likely to smoke cannabis than drink eight per cent of women were drinking in ways that were hazardous or harmful, up from five per cent in 1998. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Binge drinking also remains high, particularly among 18- to 29-year olds,â&#x20AC;? says Mann. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Overall, nine per cent of Ontario drinkers consume five or more drinks at one time each week, which represents 691,700 people.â&#x20AC;? The survey also showed that

the average number of drinks consumed weekly has increased, as has the number of drinkers overall who report daily drinking. OPIOID USE There was some good news, with the reduction in non-medical use of prescription opioids, which has been a concern in recent years. Use dropped by half between 2010 and 2011, down to four per

cent in 2011. This decline may be the result of Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s narcotics strategy as well as other policy measures to reduce the non-medical use of these powerful, addictive drugs, Mann suggests. MENTAL HEALTH One in seven Ontario adults (17 per cent) report elevated psychological distress, with rates highest among those

aged 18 to 29. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This type of distress can reduce peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to function effectively socially and emotionally,â&#x20AC;? says Mann. Seven per cent of adults reported using an anxiety medication, and seven per cent took a depression medication. These medications were most likely to be used by those aged 40 to 49, and in the case of antidepressants, by women

in this age range. SMOKING Smoking rates have been declining steadily for years in Ontario. Currently 15 per cent, or 1.4 million Ontarians, say they are smokers. However, this rate may be leveling off, says Mann. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The 15 per cent remains three times higher than the Cancer Care Ontario target of five per cent.â&#x20AC;?

EMC news - Most Ontario adults are drinking responsibly, and fewer are smoking or using illicit substances, but several areas of concern were found in a survey of substance use trends released by the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health. â&#x20AC;&#x153;More young adults are reporting that they drive within an hour of using cannabis â&#x20AC;&#x201C; even more than those who report drinking and driving,â&#x20AC;? says Dr. Robert Mann, CAMH senior scientist and lead researcher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yet the risks of doing so are significant.â&#x20AC;? Nine per cent of 18- to 29-year-olds report driving after cannabis use, versus six per cent in this age range who report drinking two or more drinks and driving. The 2011 CAMH Monitor survey, which included 3,039 adults aged 18 or older from across Ontario, is the longest ongoing survey of adult substance use in Canada. MARIJUANA Canibus users are also aging, the survey found. Those aged 50 or older now account for 16 per cent of all adult users of cannabis, which is five times higher than in 1977. ALCOHOL Most Ontario adults report drinking alcohol in the past year (81 per cent), but the majority does not drink excessively. Alcohol use is a concern when there are harmful drinking patterns, which occur in certain groups. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Women are drinking more than in the past,â&#x20AC;? says Mann. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Several key drinking indicators show an increase among women.â&#x20AC;? Six per cent of women reported a pattern of drinking daily in 2011, compared to three percent in 1998. About

RVCA open house invitation to public: Draft flood mapping for the Tay River calculations by making use of every bit of information we can obtain about the historical observations along the Tay River. Residents and landowners along the river may have anecdotal or documented information such as photographs or journal entries of their observation during past high water events. This kind of information can be very useful for evaluating the “reasonableness” of the flood lines shown on the maps and the study team is interested in reviewing any past flood evidence that people may wish to share. These maps, like their counterparts on river systems across Ontario, are the corner stone for keeping people and property safe. Controlling development on a watershed basis has long been recognized

as the most cost-effective and environmentally-acceptable way to consistently manage the risk associated with floods and other natural hazards area. Once approved by the RVCA Board of Directors, RVCA staff will use the maps for defining areas that are subject to flood hazards along the waterway. The new mapping will also be used by local municipalities when updating their Official Plans and Zoning Schedules and in the review of other related Planning Act applications. Maps showing the updated flood risk areas will be on display. When finalized, these flood risk maps will be used by planners to determine where development should and should not be located. These maps, like their counterparts

on river systems across Ontario, are the corner stone for keeping people and property safe during high water events. The maps will also show the regulation lines which are based on flood risk, presence of wetlands, and steep slope considerations. The last floodplain mapping in this area was completed in 1981 and covered the river from Glen Tay Road to the Tay Marsh. Now 30 years old, the maps need updating. No flood plain mapping has ever been done for the river downstream of the Tay Marsh. The current project will replace the old mapping and produce new mapping downstream of the Marsh. The RVCA finished mapping upstream of Glen Tay Road to the Christie Lake outlet in 2009. Submitted by the RVCA

LAWS animals on the lookout for forever homes EMC News - The Annual General Meeting of LAWS membership was held on Nov. 28 and we were encouraged to see so many supporters and members turn out to hear about the new vision for LAWS. There is a lot of work being done to ensure this great organization can continue to provide help to all the animals who need it, and we look forward to a successful year ahead as we make changes to ensure we are always there for our community. A special thank you to MP Randy Hillier for taking the time to attend and address our membership and to Melissa Rusk, President of LAWS, for her unwavering commitment and dedication to the animals and the membership of the Lanark Animal Welfare Society. Santa has been busy lately visiting all the parades and having his picture taken with all the good dogs and cats in our communities (theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all good in Santaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eyes!!). Recently, Santa visited the County Fair Mall in Smiths Falls and we wish to thank Bernie Boucher (Santa extraordinaire) and Mike Clark for his photography, and all of the families and animals who attended. Thank you also to the team at County Fair Mall for their continued support to the animals at LAWS. We would also like to thank

the following for their generous donations for the benefit of L.A.W.S.: Howard, Ryan, Kelford, Knott and Dixon; Ross Cliffen and Associates; Kirkland, Murphy and Kennedy; Glen Tay School, Libby Ladd, Kyra Debbie and Zoe Stockhard. To all our generous supporters for your donations of supplies, dog/cat canned food, warm blankets and towels and many other items (too numerous to mention in this column!). You have enriched the animalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lives with your kindness. To all our wonderful Volunteers for helping us out on a regular basis, come rain or shine, through thick and thin. We appreciate your loyalty, your passion and dedication in helping and caring for our animals DOG PIC GOES HERE Biggie I am a mature dog and, as some would say, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m getting up there in years, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be fooled! I love to go for long walks and I can even keep up with my golden retriever friend whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much bigger than I am. I enjoy playing with other dogs, gentle souls that are non confrontational that is. I love to be cuddled and I show this by closing my eyes in contentment. I have had exposure to children and I am kind to them. My foster mom says that she has never seen such a handsome â&#x20AC;&#x153;sit upâ&#x20AC;?

from a dog, ever, in her lifeâ&#x20AC;Ś especially from a French Bulldog. Is there a warm, kind, loving place for me in your home? Piper is the Volunteer Pick

of the Week. Have you ever seen a more interesting looking cat in your life? He has the most spectacular grey coat I have ever seen and a fox like faceâ&#x20AC;Ś he is adorable. He is a talkative neutered male of about two years of age. He has recovered from a urinary tract infection so now requires special kibble, but please donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let that be a deterrent; he is absolutely worth it! He has a laid back personality and loves being held and petted. He is a big boy with a big heart. Please

come and visit Piper soon. LAWS is located at 253 Glenview Road, Smith Falls.

Mudds’ Aladdin is a treat for the whole family Judging by the reaction of the children in attendance for Friday’s premiere, the tale hasn’t lost its lustre. This show is very much about audience participation. The cast invites spectators to take part and people did so with enthusiasm, especially the kids in attendance, which added to the enjoyment for the rest of us. The familiar theme of “heroes and villains” gets a good workout in Aladdin. The good guys are led by Aladdin (confidently played by young Tanner Flinn) and his lady love Princess Say When (Amy Bourne). They are well supported by Aladdin’s sister Wishee Washey (Caitlin Mortin) and his mother, the Widow Twankey, who is very well played by Mudds’ veteran Jim MacGregor. Veterans excellent MacGregor and Mudds’ founder Jan Ferguson, who plays the Genie ‘Mazda’ are the only two returnees from the original Mudds’ presentation of Aladdin 22 years ago. Ferguson had a different role in the original show but MacGregor reprises his Widow Twankey character. They are both nothing short of brilliant and they stole the show for me. MacGregor, who is involved less frequently on stage these days, has clearly become very comfortable as a cross-dresser. Regular Mudds’ watchers will remember his excellent performance as Mother Goose in 2009. As for the story, Aladdin a poor Chinese boy meets the Princess and they immediately fall in love. He certainly isn’t the choice for Say When’s parents Emperor Chop Suey (Brian McManus) and Empress Dragona (Jennifer Pfitzer). If he is caught Aladdin will have his head chopped off on their orders. He is saved because Abanazar, an Egyptian magician (well played by Adam Pelletier), has chosen him to help retrieve a magic lamp hidden in a secret cave outside the capital city (Pekin in this case). Aladdin agrees to help

the magician. Once he has the lamp in hand he decides to keep it for himself. Abanazar seals the cave hoping our hero will die. The action really heats up when Aladdin rubs the lamp and the genie (Ferguson at her absolute best) appears. Not only is he saved but the genie makes him the richest prince in Asia. Aladdin and Say When are married in the first act. But their future is nearly undone when Abanazar tricks the Princess into giving him the lamp. He takes her to Egypt and the great pyramids. All appears lost for Aladdin, his mother and sister. They are reduced to begging for alms. Thanks to the intervention of a magical spirit, he follows his love to Egypt where he recovers the lamp, defeats Abanazar and returns in triumph to China. There are many good supporting performances from the cast of 19. Prince Pekoe, the Princesses’ intended, is ably played by Liz Szucs. Mudds’ regulars Mike Lieff (The Visier, Chow Mein) along with Trish Smith and Kathleen Everett (they are the police officers Tofu and Bamboo) are delightful. Young sisters Kirra and Maddy Martin – they play the executioner and Mazawattee, Spirit of the Ring respectively – also did very good work. They’re too cute for words! I haven’t even touched on the music. This is very much a musical and it features some familiar songs which are well presented and fit the production nicely. Musical director Kristine MacLaren and band leader/arranger Peter Brown have put together a strong musical package. Brown and three fellow musicians were flawless in support Friday. Song highlights in Act 1 include ‘I’ve Just Seen a Face’ featuring Flinn, along with the 11 member chorus (they did strong work throughout the show) and ‘Girls Just Want to Have Fun’ with the Widow Twankey taking the lead. MacGregor’s vocals are

at times which is unusual for local theatre. The funniest moment came late in the piece when, after being surprised by one of the scenes, a young girl in the audience exclaimed “that was weird” in a voice that could have been heard on Bridge Street. Everyone in the audience roared. So did some of the actors! This is a fun presentation and I was disappointed there wasn’t a full house Friday to witness it. Hopefully that can be rectified this weekend, although Monday many tickets

so bad they’re good, if that makes any sense! Bourne, the Princess, has a sweet voice and I particularly enjoyed her handling of ‘You Had Me from Hello’ in Act 1 and ‘Do You Believe in Fairy Tales’ in the second act. The script is very strong in places with plenty of puns (there are some real groaners), interesting word play and just the right number of welltimed local references to add more humour. I mentioned the audience participation! It was totally spontaneous

EMC Entertainment – The Mississippi Mudds have dusted off an old script for their annual pre-Christmas, musical panto. When Aladdin rubs the magic lamp the result is a highly energized, humorous and visually pleasing show that is perfect for the whole family. Friday night the familiar tale ‘Aladdin’ opened a sixperformance run in the venerable Town Hall Auditorium in Carleton Place. Mudds marked their 35th anniversary in 2008 and this is the second time they have presented the same panto. The last time was 22 years ago and Tony Scott, who directs the current production, was in charge of that staging as well. Joanne Samler is the producer of this show and Barb Dickson is the stage manager. I didn’t see the first, so I can’t offer a comparison. But with a cast that is almost completely different and some new bits added to this presentation, a comparison would be unfair. Still, it is hard to imagine the 1990 show could have been any more impressive in terms of costumes and scenery? The large backstage crew has outdone themselves once again. Not surprising considering Mudds’ spring presentation of ‘Noises Off’ won the Capital Critics Circle (Ottawa) award for Best Set Design (Community). Congratulations to Shawn Millman and Jeff Lee! The sets for Aladdin are good too. But it is the costumes that impressed me most! Judith Scott (yes, she is the director’s wife) and her sevenmember costume team have produced what has to be one of the most outstanding sets of costumes I have ever seen in a Mississippi Mudds’ presentation. And I have attended countless over the years. The word “professional” is the right one I think! The story of Aladdin and the magic lamp is quite a familiar one, although possibly not for today’s youngsters.

It’s time to make your list, check it twice and get your home in the holiday spirit! EMC News - Take advantage of the milder temperatures this weekend to get your holiday lights up and get it done safely with these tips from Hydro One: • Always use Canadian Standards Association (CSA) approved lights, cords, plugs and sockets that are marked for outdoor use or wet locations. •Do not overload circuits. Have no more than 1,400 watts on a circuit. If other lights in the house dim when the holiday lighting is turned on or the plug is very hot af-

ter unplugging it, your circuit is overloaded. To figure out a circuit’s load, multiply the number of bulbs by the watts per bulb, and add any lamps, appliances or other equipment on the same circuit. •Before you put light strings on a shrub, tree or your house, check for breaks or signs of insulation deterioration. Frayed cords or loose connections indicate that the wiring is poor. Replace any defective sets. •Never install lights with the power on. Test lights first, then unplug to install.

•Keep electrical connections off the ground. Use eave clips or insulated staples, rather than nails and tacks, to hold light strings in place. •Keep wiring clear of metal parts such as ornamental railings and drainpipes, to prevent any risk of shock from an electrical current. Do not leave any light sockets empty if you want sections in your light string unlit. This can create a fire hazard or could be

fatal if someone touches the inside of the empty socket. Instead place a burned-out bulb in the socket. This will not affect the other lights on the string. Looking to save energy this holiday season? Make the switch to Light Emitting Diode (LED) holiday lights and enjoy significant energy and cost savings this winter. According to Natural Resources Canada, LEDs use 80 per cent

less energy than their incandescent counterparts, so now is the time to upgrade your old incandescent strings. If you’re still not sure, consider this: incandescent bulbs waste a lot of energy - 90% of the energy they consume is used to heat the bulb, while only 10% is used for lighting. LEDs, by contrast, directly convert electricity to light without the use of a filament or glass bulb, resulting in less

energy loss through heat. LED light strings also last up to ten times longer than incandescent light strings. And because they don’t have moving parts, filaments or glass, they’re much more durable and shock-resistant than other light strings. Interested in additional ways to save energy?

Winter tire benefits not understood: report EMC news - Only half of Canadian drivers (52 per cent) use winter tires, despite their proven superior performance in all cold-weather road conditions. A 2011 study by the Quebec government shows that winter road-accident injuries have dropped by five per cent since winter tire use was made mandatory by law in that province in 2008. Widespread use of winter tires is credited with preventing about 575 injuries per winter in the province.

These findings are supported by a new report from the Traffic Injury Research Foundation that concludes that winter tires decrease costly collisions. The report cites extensive research that shows that winter tires deliver superior traction, cornering and braking on all cold-weather road surfaces. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All the evidence points to winter tires being the safest choice for driving in cold weather,â&#x20AC;? says Glenn Maidment, president of the Rubber

Association of Canada, which represents tire makers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Drivers should carefully consider whether winter tires are right for them and make an educated choice.â&#x20AC;? The TIRF report stresses that the benefits of winter tires are not well understood and clarifies commonly held myths about winter tires. Many motorists, for example, think that winter tires are only useful in regions with lots of snow.

In fact, research shows that once temperatures drop below 7C, winter tires perform better whether the road surface is dry, snow covered, slushy or icy. Winter tires feature specialized rubber compounds that retain elasticity in temperatures below -30C and treads that grip at cold temperatures. Another commonly believed myth is that two winter tires, rather than a set of four, is sufficient. Mixing different types of tires creates a traction imbalance between the front and

rear wheel positions and can cause a vehicle to â&#x20AC;&#x153;over steerâ&#x20AC;? (when the winter tires are mounted on the front axle) or â&#x20AC;&#x153;under steerâ&#x20AC;? (when the winter tires are on the rear axle). These unsafe conditions can make a vehicle difficult to control, particularly when cornering. Proper tire inflation is also important during the winterdriving month. Tires that are under-orover inflated have a smaller footprint on the road surface, which lessens their grip. The result is reduced stop-

ping and handling capabilities and wasted fuel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Winter tires and proper inflation should be considered driving essentials from December to April,â&#x20AC;? says Maidment. â&#x20AC;&#x153; Motorists should also practise defensive driving and keep their vehicles properly maintained and prepared for winter driving.â&#x20AC;?

Brent traded his bicycle for a 1955 Chevrolet when I said it had no reverse. He walked into the house, returned with a pipe wrench, opened the hood, and gave the steering column a twist. Now all gears worked, including reverse! “Next day we towed my car to our cottage, where I learned to drive on empty fields and logging roads. I worked parttime on a farm for gas money. The next summer, I ruined

the automatic transmission. A farmer down the road was junking another ’55 and gave me the standard transmission. I cut a big hole in the floor and made two rods sticking up. You shifted one rod to move into neutral and the other rod to move into the next gear. After some grinding, it worked reasonably well. “Next summer, I chopped off the back of the car with

an ax and made it into a tow truck. It was finally towed to a scrap heap. Years later, I was building a T-bucket roadster and I needed a good differential. I went to the old scrap heap and removed the complete diff assembly from my old ’55 and installed it in my T-bucket, where it still runs today.” Many thanks to Doug Janney of Renfrew for suggesting

I modified the frame to install a larger back wheel with 3-speed gears, cut the front forks and welded homemade forks on, and installed home-made “ape” hangers for handlebars. I also installed a 3-speed stick shifter on the front cross bar and topped it off with a custom blue paint job and new chrome fenders. “Later that spring, I pedaled down to the local soda shop, where a teenager asked if I would trade my bike for his car! Thinking he was joking, I said ‘Sure!’ Then he showed me his car – a ’55 Chevy 2-door. I told him I didn’t have a driver’s license. He replied: ‘I’ll drive it home for you.’ “We shook hands, I signed the ownership, and he drove the car to my parents’ house. I had him park down the street until I could get enough nerve to tell Dad. As he handed me the keys, he told me reverse gear didn’t work. “About a week later, Dad asked if I knew who owned the blue Chev parked on the street. I proudly said: ‘It’s mine!’ Dad lectured me on why I shouldn’t own a car. I wasn’t even old enough to drive. Then he asked for the keys and started it up. That’s

MOVIE: Rise of the Guardians STARRING: Chris Pine, Alec Baldwin, Hugh Jackman, Isla Fisher and Jude Law DIRECTOR: Peter Ramsey RATING: G EMC Entertainment - Rise of the Guardians turned out to be one heck of a superhero film. Who knew? An ancient enemy threatens to turn the dreams of children into nightmares. He’ll steal hope and wonder, and cloak the world in darkness. His name is Pitch Black (Jude Law), but most fear him as the Boogeyman. Fortunately there are guardians who protect the children of the world. All four, Santa Claus (Alec Baldwin), the Easter Bunny (Hugh Jackman), the Tooth Fairy (Isla Fisher) and the Sandman, have come together to fight Pitch. Each immortal has special powers, but even they may not be enough. Fortunately a new guardian has been chosen; Jack Frost (Chris Pine). Jack is another immortal with powers over ice, cold and wind. He’s a jokester and a trickster. He’s the one who brings

MARK HASKINS

snow days to children, and starts snowball fights. He’s not a guardian, but if Jack is to have any hope of defeating Pitch he’ll have to discover the hero he was always meant to be. Imagine if Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, the Sandman and Jack Frost were part of The Avengers, and you’ll have a pretty good idea what Rise of the Guardians is like. It’s a fantastic adventure of good versus evil in which a group of immortals with amazing powers battle a terrifying evil. There’s a holiday theme, but it’s basically a superhero film. It’s an imaginative story that doesn’t shy away from being a little dark in places. That dark undertone really heightened the excitement and intensity of the film. There are some powerful moments, which combined with the stunning animation, makes Rise of the Guardians a must-see film. Alec Baldwin is the voice of the larger than life, sword wielding, tattooed, Russian

warrior that is Santa Claus. It’s a great character and Baldwin is awesome. The Easter Bunny, with his magic boomerangs, is nature’s fierce defender. There’s no one better to voice the sixfoot Australian bunny than Hugh Jackman. The Tooth Fairy is part human and part hummingbird and all fairy. She’s full of energy, and Isla Fisher really helps bring her to life. Though he doesn’t have a voice I should also mention the Sandman. He appears as a kind-hearted purveyor of dreams who communicates through his sand creations, but when the fight is on, well let’s just say you don’t want to mess with the Sandman. As villains go the Boogeyman is as classic as they get. He’s everything we fear about the dark. Like all true megalomaniacs intent on taking over the world, Jude Law steals the show. Jack struggles with who he is, but deep down he’s a born hero. Chris Pine is perfect as the immortal trickster of ice and snow. Rise of the Guardians may be a superhero/holiday adventure, but mostly it’s just good fun. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

Twin community in Scotland suffers trial by water EMC Lifestyle - This year marks the 20th anniversary of the twinning arrangement involving Carleton Place, Ontario, Canada and the picturesque village of Comrie in the Strathearn district of Scotland’s famed Highlands. After visiting the community four times my wife and I have become very familiar with the village. We are fortunate to count a number of the villagers as friends and we’re in touch with them regularly by e-mail and telephone. Our most recent visit was in August when we attended ceremonies marking the 20th anniversary of the Carleton Place-Comrie twinning. I am the current chairman of the Carleton Place Sister City Committee which oversees sister city linkages with Comrie and the city of Franklin, Tennessee near Nashville. My wife Kathleen is also a committee member. We traveled with our good friends Wendy and Frank LeBlanc who are also long-time committee members. As mayor of Carleton Place, Wendy’s role during the ceremonies in Comrie had two sides. Our trip was highly successful. We had barely arrived home when on Aug. 27 we received the disappointing news that Comrie had suffered serious flooding. The flood resulted from the same torrential rains which plagued Scotland and much of the United Kingdom all spring and summer. I wrote a

Reflections BY JEFF MAGUIRE

newspaper story about the occurrence and also commented on it in a previous column. Two weeks ago, it happened again! Just 83 days after the previous flood an even more serious disaster occurred on Nov. 19.The August occurrence displaced quite a few families with some forced to leave their homes for up to six months while extensive repairs are made. Last week’s flood was in the same area. Now the most seriously affected properties in the village of less than 3,000 have been hit for a second time. Some people were just nicely back in their houses when another rain-induced torrent of water poured in overnight Sunday Nov. 18. They were forced to flee for the second time in less than three months. There is a political situation involved. Residents and Comrie Community Council, a volunteer body, are blaming the local authority – Perth and Kinross Council – for failing to complete a promised flood protection scheme. The flooding was serious enough to warrant national publicity on the BBC. I watched a news clip on

BBC Scotland during which a public works supervisor commented on the planned water diversion scheme. Reminded by the reporter of public anger aimed at his employer (county council) the man said he understands the anger and frustration. But he said the protection scheme has just received final approval. He is hopeful work will be under way shortly. However, he stopped well short when asked if the program will prevent future occurrences of this sort. “We’ve had unprecedented rainfall recently so there are no guarantees unfortunately,” the public works superintendent stated. Last week sandbagging and other anti-flood barricades were underway in anticipation of even more heavy rainfall last weekend and again this week. Scotland is well known for its cool, wet weather. This year the persistence of the rain and the volume of water that has fallen from the skies there is truly unbelievable. We were in Comrie for five days in August and there was rain every day in varying amounts. Luckily the sun shone during the outdoor 20th anniversary event on Aug. 18. But only briefly unfortunately! By the next day the rain was bucketing down again. On our final night in Comrie I took a short walk in the rain and noticed storm sewers

on the main street were nearly overflowing. Water was backing up everywhere because the ground simply could not soak up any more. Some of our friends in Comrie point out that the village is very vulnerable. It lies at the confluence of three rivers. The largest, the River Earn, bisects the village. Its tributaries are the Water of Ruchill and the River Lednock. All have been swollen well beyond normal this year. The problem river is the Ruchill which is the focus of the planned widening and deepening work. The relatively small, narrow water course was unable to handle the huge volume of water surging down from the Highlands during the downpours which occurred Aug. 26/27 and Nov. 18/19. On both occasions the Ruchill burst its banks and water poured into the section of Comrie known as ‘Dalginross’ on the south side of the River Earn. The hardest hit streets in August were Barrack and Camp Roads along with Tay Avenue and Tay Place. Last week the same general area was affected except even more properties (more than 100 in total) were affected many seriously. Firefighters and police had to rescue some people who were cut off and trapped by the flood waters. Fortunately there were no injuries that I am aware of. As they did in August the

fire brigades also did a fantastic job of pumping out the hardest hit homes and streets. Our good friend Isobel McEwan e-mailed to fill us in on developments. “Once again Comrie has shown what a wonderful community it is,” she says. “The emergency services were here in minutes. I dread to think what would have happened if there had been a fire anywhere as I think every fire engine in Scotland was here. I know that they came from as far away as Edinburgh.” The Scottish capital, by the way, is more than an hour by road from Comrie.Isobel’s tidy home on Tay Ave. just missed being inundated in August. This time the waters rose too quickly and her basement was flooded. Her neighbor quickly pumped it out, minimizing damage. She considers herself very fortunate because her living space was not impacted. Comrie councillor Sandra McRitchie also credits the emergency services for their early response last week. She too praised the community for coming together to help those displaced by the flooding. “A brigade of volunteers have been down at the White Church Community Centre providing those affected, as well as volunteers and the emergency services with hot food, tea and even a wee dram. “The local shops have do-

nated food and the women are busy peeling potatoes. Comrie’s community spirit shines again!” Our young friend Amanda Lees is a Girl Guide leader there. Her experience paid off during the most recent flooding. “Yesterday was manic,” she wrote to me last Tuesday. I spent seven hours running after all the emergency service staff feeding them and chatting with them. “Gotta use my Guiding spirit in a situation like that. But boy, do my feet hurt today!” Isobel McEwan summed up the disaster very well in her communications to us. “It is really heartbreaking to see some of the houses just along from me that were flooded in August and were still being dried out, flooded again. “Comrie is the best place in the world to be when this sort of thing happens though. The real meaning of community shines through.” So there you have it. Comrie’s trial by water has been overcome by the strength of the human spirit. We wish the people of our twin community the very best as they once again work to recover from the wrath of Mother Nature.

The therapy of music affects our lives in many ways Musical Musings STEVE TENNANT

Parkinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While music has long been recognized as an effective form of therapy, the notion of harnessing song, sound frequencies and rhythm as another tool in treating physical ailments is a much newer domain.â&#x20AC;? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure this is just the tip of the iceberg. As we relished in the sweet vocal harmonies offered by Beckon (Beth Hamilton and Connie Rossitter from Owen Sound, Ont.), they shared one is a Music Therapist. That got me thinking of the Toronto Starâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s previously quoted article my dad had shared with me earlier and also the wonderful work I saw first hand as I was lucky to witness Music Therapists perform their magical connectedness with some of my clients who had no speech, little movement and relied on others for everything, every day. To see one of their hands being strummed across a guitarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strings, the resulting sound bringing a beaming sparkle on their face and eye contact with the therapist that said more than words ever could. I remembered Rev. John Mont-

gomery sharing stories of incredible connections he had made through his drumming workshops with seniors who hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spoken in years. Music affects so much of us, whether its our feet tappinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; or long forgotten memories .... I have so many friends in which music is really our only connection. The rest of our respective lives are in entirely different worlds but somewhere along the way weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve connected through music. As I looked around a recent party held in my honour I looked around the room and realized there were people there representing all aspects of my adult life and to almost everyone, some song came to mind in particular. Music is a magical connection. It is what makes me so excited to hear the results of the U of T Music Project. To me, the sky is the limit. I know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music that has kept me in the semi-sane state I enjoy today. So go put on one of your favourites, crank it up, grab a seat, close your eyes and enjoy all it brings back .... A Sneak Peek The Third Annual - â&#x20AC;&#x153;Songs

EMC Entertainment - As I sat slightly behind, I witnessed one of my friendsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; elderly mother reach across the table and take my friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hand while we all sat enjoying a new duo â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Beckonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; at a new coffee house in Perth, Bakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bean Village Cafe at 1 Sherbrooke E. on a sunny fall mid-week afternoon. There were no words, just the tender touch between them but so much more was going on with that flesh to flesh connection... Oh, and such a sweet satisfied smile shared on mom and daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s faces. Daughter had brought mom to enjoy the music, out from the nursing home she had recently reluctantly moved her into. That musical connection remains where so much else has gone. Music has such an effect on us, more than we realize it seems. Quoting a Dec 16, 2011 article in The Toronto Star ... â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has been called the window on the soul, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the brandy of the damnedâ&#x20AC;?, and most famously, the food of love. Now scientists believe music may also be an important form of medicine. And next year, Toronto could be at the forefront of this emerging field with the launch of a new centre on music and health research.â&#x20AC;? The article goes on to describe a new program at University of Toronto where they will look to find new uses of music to assist with strokes, Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, chronic pain and

There are steps to take for effective long-term storage EMC Lifestyle - â&#x20AC;&#x153;Brian, If I leave a car (my relatively new 2012 Toyota Corolla) in a garage for three months while I am south is there anything I have to do to the car â&#x20AC;&#x201C; such as disconnecting the battery?â&#x20AC;? Thanks, Gord There are difficulties, even with vehicles as new as your Toyota, when it comes to long-term storage. Many of these can be overcome, but not without expense. For example, you can purchase and install a high tech-battery minder/charger that will keep the battery at full strength without overcharging it. (Disconnecting the battery may lead to radio, vehicle security system, and other on-board computer problems and leaving it connected for three months of no use may discharge it). You can have a

treatment applied to the brake surfaces (rotors and drums) to avoid rust build up and excessive noise and vibration from the brakes when you first take the vehicle out for a drive. You can mount the vehicle on jack stands to avoid stressing suspension components. You can treat the fuel with stabilizer and you can fog the engine cylinders with oil, etc, etc, etc. You can avoid all of this all of this, if you can locate a trusted family member or friend, who can drop by monthly to start the car, and take it for a short run (15-20 km) that fully warms up the engine and works the suspen-

sion, brakes, and steering. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t emphasize the phrase â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;trusted friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; enough. It will be your insurance on the line while this vehicle is out on the road and having unsupervised access to a fairly new Toyota will be a great temptation to a lot of people. Whether or not you choose the storage or trusted friend option, treating the vehicle with some critter-proofing is advised. Get some aromatic natural peppermint oil from your local health or natural food store, mix it 1 to 10 with warm water and pour it in a hand-spray bottle.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dear Mr. Turner, I have a 2009 PT Cruiser and when I bought it last year the tires were continually going flat. The mechanic said they were having trouble with these cars because of the tire sensors so I had them removed and had no more trouble with tire deflation. After reading your recent column I wonder if it will have any effect on the traction-control. Also, does it affect gas mileage? My already poor gas mileage of 10 L/100 km has gone down to 10.3 L/100 km.

Eye-catching 1977 Pontiac LeMans owned for nearly 30 years! EMC Lifestyle - Steve Hillman of London, Ontario, writes: “Hi Bill, I love reading your articles and always look forward to them. My car is nothing special but it means everything to me. “At age 16, I was determined to buy a Pontiac GTO. I found a ’69 (if memory serves) with a 455 in it. My mother had to test drive it because I only had my beginners license. She could not touch the gas without snapping everyone’s head back. I took a buddy with me for the test drive. We were hooting and laughing like idiots. After the test drive, I told my mom I was buying it. She said: “Like hell you are! You’ll kill yourself in this car!” Since Mom and Dad were co-signing the loan, I had no choice.

“A few weeks later, my parents told me that they found a 1977 Pontiac LeMans Sport Coupe. I ended up buying it and quickly fell in love with it. The first winter I drove it, but it was terrible in the snow and the heater was crap. The next summer I had it repainted and it has not seen the winter since. About six months later I started dating the lady who is now my wife. She was way out of my league and I’m pretty sure the only reason she went out with me was because of the car! “We used the LeMans as our daily driver for many years. We strapped car seats into it when the kids were young. Every winter, we drove whatever winter beater we could afford. Some were pretty bad! I recently had the car repainted. It is now stored indoors and only driven on occasion. One day I will pass it down to one of the kids. I’ve now owned it for nearly 30 years!” Steve is the second owner

and bought the car on April 11, 1983 (six weeks after turning 16) for $3,900. He still has the bill of sale. Under the hood is a 350 V8 with 4 bbl carb. The car is all original except for a sun roof that Steve added when he was 17. The black vinyl interior was refinished a few years ago and the sun roof comes in handy since the car does not have A/C. Steve and his wife were married in 1989 and honeymooned in the Poconos. While they were there, a motorcycle cop pulled them over. Steve asked what was wrong. The officer said: “Nothing’s wrong. I just want to ask what year your car is. It’s beautiful!” I’m always looking for more stories. Email billtsherk@sympatico.ca or write Bill Sherk, 25 John St., P.O. Box 255, Leamington, ON N8H 3W2.

Reducing Christmas wrapping waste on Christmas morning EMC Lifestyle - Reduce the waste created by traditional Christmas gift wrapping with some of these old and new ideas. You will wonder why you ever used and threw away so much Christmas wrapping paper, ribbons and bows. Start by setting aside anything that looks like it might be useful, like the foil or fabric from flowers or plants, the trims off fancy gift boxes, stickers you get in the charitable donation requests, and the like. The container: Think beyond the box to cereal boxes, Christmas cookie tins, jars, wicker or fruit baskets. Use a clear plastic container and bury the gift with shredded coloured paper. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve or-

dered a gift by mail, just keep the gift in that box, skip the wrap and embellish it with ribbon, trims, and stickers. Packing: Reuse tissue paper or Styrofoam peanuts, or try real peanuts (in the shell) or popped popcorn. You can even use shredded white paper or put some too-smallto-be-usable coloured wrap through the shredder. Gift Bags: Purchased paper gift bags can be used multiple times, but arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recyclable. Handled shopping bags, brown or coloured are possibilities. Sew a fabric bag from colourful or Christmas fabric, or wrap gifts in old clothing. Wrap: Brown packages look classy with a coloured

bow, and the paper is recyclable, as are comics or newspaper. (Try black ribbon on the newspaper.) Old topo maps, road maps, or the ones you get with your National Geographic are interesting, as are childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s artwork and wallpaper. Kids will enjoy decorating plain white or parchment paper with potato or cork prints, rubber stamps, markers or stickers. Need large paper sheets? Use the paper that is folded around your EMC fliers, newsprint roll ends, or cut open another paper bag. Make the wrap part of the gift: You can wrap a gift in scarves, baby blankets, towels, tea towels, throws, t-shirts and so on. Tie with whatever

you have on hand or pin carefully. Tying: Tie your package with ribbon, string, twine, raffia or yarn. The cords from sweatshirts are good for tying or sewing into the neck of gift bags. Or be truly creative and try skipping ropes, bungee cords, or shoe laces. Trims: Embellish with anything reused or natural: small branches, shell, pinecones, or flowers, or a paper snowflake. Or consider a small gift like measuring spoons, a candy cane, a lollipop, or a hair scrunchie. Tags: Write directly on the package, or use labels or stickers. Cut up old greeting cards with pinking shears in rect-

angles, the recipientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s initial, or Christmassy shapes like mittens and bells. Cards can also be cut to fit the top side of a small package by way of decoration. Other Thoughts. ¡ Martha Stewart suggests opening up a potato chip bag so you can wrap a gift in the silvery foil inside. ¡ Look for online directions to create fused plastic gift bags using layers of plastic bags and an iron. ¡ Consider not wrapping the gift up at all, especially if you are going to present it immediately. ¡ Give gifts that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t require packaging! Purchased or homemade gift certificates

are easily wrapped in an envelope, and making a charitable donation or giving from a charitable gift catalogue are possibilities. ¡ If you are using traditional Christmas wrap, check with your municipality what they will take in their recycling programs. And donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be tempted to burn coloured paper in your fireplace. ¡ The REAL Deal is wellsupplied with cookie tins and wicker, and has some trims, bows and gift bags, too.

EMC Lifestyle - In 1948, the Hudson Motor Car Company brought out one of the most stunning postwar cars that ever hit the pavement. They were long, low, and wide, and known as “stepdown” Hudsons because the floor was cradled between the frame rails instead of above them. The Hudson Hornet was added to the lineup of cars in 1951 and it set all-time stock car records not with an overhead-valve V8 engine but with a flathead six engineered for maximum power and performance.

EMC News - Smiths Falls patients needing an X-ray, ultrasound or ECG will now have to wait in line at the local hospital after a funding change this spring recently resulted in the closure of the CML Health Care centre in Cornelia Court. Staff at the centre walked out of the building for the last time Nov. 30 after decades of serving the area and providing valuable medical detail on a variety of conditions. Centre staff admit the demand for the office has reduced, but the need for an alternative to the hospital wait times is still very much needed in town. “It’s just what it’s doing to the community,” said Anne Ayoub, long-time technician at the centre. Dr. Raphael Shew who has operated a medical practice across the hall from CML Health Care for some time agrees, saying he fears the closure will mean longer wait

times for results and further distances to travel for timely care, which can be an obstacle for elderly or ill patients. “The doctors at 91 Cornelia Street were often able to review their patients’ X-ray films and decide on treatment during the same day; often at the same office visit,” Dr. Shew said. The Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital is now the only location in town to provide these diagnostic services, which many expect will only lengthen the wait times. CML Health Care has been in the community for decades with about a dozen years within Cornelia Court. Many, including Dr. Shew feel the service really completed the circle of care as a lab for inoculations is also located within Cornelia Court in addition to the family practice clinic. “With a vision of one-stop shopping for medical services at Cornelia Court, CML was an important player,” Dr. Shew said. Construction is currently

underway at the multi-use facility to expand the existing physician office space to create a turnkey clinic in Smiths Falls. Further information was unavailable by deadline this week despite efforts to reach a representative of Guy Saumure & Sons Construction who owns the building. Staff at CML Health Care was told of the decision to close in mid-October and began informing clients last month. Some staff members were given severance while others received alternate offers of employment in Ottawa. “We feel badly for our patients as well as for our staff,” added Alice Dunning, spokesperson for CML Health Care. “It’s unfortunate but we were forced to do it.” Dunning denies the decision to close had anything to do with digital equipment investments that had to be made, but instead said it is entirely due to the province’s announcement this past May to reduce its reimbursement

of services. Services like CML Health Care receive two funding payments: one to the radiologist for their interpretation and a second for operating costs, but Dunning said both funds were cut this year. “That makes it really, really difficult for us to continue to pay for our expenses,” Dunning said. Those at CML Health Care were disappointed with the province’s reimbursement cuts particularly given the process. Dunning contends only the Ontario Medical Association was invited by the province to sit down and discuss the potential cuts, but the spokesperson points out these cuts hurt businesses who aren’t managed by doctors the most. “We weren’t even at the table,” she said. Local staff are now turning their prayers towards another business model for similar services opening up in the Smiths Falls area. Until then, patients will need to line up at the local hospital.

EMC News - Smiths Falls Mayor Dennis Staples has chosen to give back to his community by being at the helm for many years. His 25 years of political service was recognized by the Ministry of Municipal Affairs Dec. 3 when a government representative presented the mayor with a longstanding service pin and certificate of appreciation for the more than two decades of representing his town. “I’m humbled by this,” said the mayor upon receipt of the recognition. “It’s been an honour to serve the Town of Smiths Falls.” The mayor’s formal service began in 1986 when he was first elected to the council table for his first of three terms as councillor. This experience prepared him well for the role he would assume in 1994 when the chains of office were first bestowed on him. He was sworn in as the town’s mayor for the first time - a position he has maintained for the last six terms. In receiving this recognition, the mayor had many thanks to extend to the gallery of family and friends who attended this week’s council session presentation. “I thank the voters and the current and past council members but most importantly my family. I want to thank them for their understanding,” Staples said. The demanding role of mayor has often taken Staples away from family gatherings and events. During his opening remarks, ministry representative Vincent Fabiilli highlighted the mayor’s commitment to his community in all its forms, including supporting the local hockey scene. “He was always part of that community,” Fabiilli said.

Road to small town living not always smooth for newcomers By STACEY ROY sroy@perfprint.ca

EMC Lifestyle - The serene small town life in sensational Smiths Falls is a precious asset for one group of new residents who have traveled across an ocean and overcome many obstacles to find the comforts of home. “It’s so beautiful,” said Elena Peters who became a Smiths Falls resident on Oct. 17, 2012. In the little time she has had to digest her new town Peters has marveled at the natural spaces, lakes and the bright sunshine that is all around. Peters’ journey to town began in Belarus where she met her future husband (a Canadian) while on vacation from Russia. After a courtship of letters and phone calls the pair married in the summer of 2009 and began the paper work of immigration - a three-year process that kept the newlyweds an ocean apart for much of this time. “It was a very long time,” Peters admits. Since reuniting with her husband last month she has joined an English as a Second Language (ESL) class at the Smiths Falls Public Library where she hopes to improve her language skills and enter the workforce as a medical assistant (her position in Russia before leaving). The difficulty in navigating

New residents to Smiths Falls all have a story, and that story inevitably includes a long plane ride across the ocean and adjustment in a new land. From left to right: Elena Peters (Russia), Cherian Varghese (India), Vivian Liu and Michael Huang (China) are all students in the English as a Second Language course held at the public library Tuesday to Thursday. an employment system that doesn’t recognize international experience is something many immigrants run into once they arrive in Canada. Her classmate, Cherian Varghese of southern India, knows all too well the obstacles that immigrants must overcome before they can actively participate in their new communities. Coming from a well-educated area in India, Varghese (who holds a degree in commerce and business administration)

never considered leaving his home country for Canada until he married a woman with a plane ticket to the northern country. “I didn’t know anything about Canada,” he admits. His new wife had bought a ticket to her new country before the wedding with visions of landing a better job with her pharmacist training and having a better life. “Once we landed here things were upside down,” Varghese

said. The couple soon realized their years of experience and training meant nothing in their new country and had no choice but to take on labour work to get by. “It was kind of frustrating for both of us,” he recalls. The process of registration was three to four years in length for Varghese’s wife during which time the couple struggled financially. In 2006 the couple welcomed their

young daughter to the world. Having been born in Canada their daughter was automatically a citizen, but her time in her native country would be splintered. At just five months of age, Varghese and his wife had no choice due to work pressures but to send their infant back to India to live with their parents. She returned to her parents last year after a three-year gap. “Waiting is like hell,” Varghese says. The couple loves the benefits of a small town and the friendliness of people in the community, wishing only for greater public transportation. “What we like most in Smiths Falls is the locks,” he says. Their hope is to one day operate their own business in Canada. The freedom of business ownership without the threat of death is what brought Michael Huang and his father from their first immigrant experience in Argentina to their current home in Smiths Falls. When Huang was 17 years old he and his dad left China for Argentina with dreams of operating their own super market, which is exactly what his father did. Early on in the operation the market suffered three robberies in one day, but the danger was about to increase when Huang’s father decided to expand and open a

second location near a competing market. “They sent people to try and kill my father,” Huang says of the competition. “After, my father thought it not safe so we decided to come to Canada.” Today, the father-son duo operate the King Star restaurant in town with Huang’s girlfriend, Vivian Liu who moved to Smiths Falls from Toronto with the two men. The hardest part about living in town and working six to seven days a week is the lack of social support. “The only fun is we have English class,” Huang said. Liu has really improved her English since joining the class, which has helped her in working at the restaurant. “I always feel nervous,” Liu said. The ESL program continues to welcome individuals wishing to increase their English skills. The program meets Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. from September to June at the public library and is free to permanent residents who were born outside Canada and do not speak English or French. The local program got its start as a pilot project under TR Leger in 2010 and has transitioned into a dedicated course just this year. Anyone wanting more information on the program can call Julie Case at 613-330-0102 or the TR Leger office at 613-283-5418.

This is the second recognition Smiths Falls’ veteran mayor has received for his work in the community. Earlier this fall the Smiths Falls & District Chamber of Commerce honoured him with a Community Appreciation award for outstanding support of the town. Coun. Jay Brennan extended his congratulations to the mayor prior to the cake cutting ceremony Dec. 3. Brennan relayed comments made to him by Norm Sterling who was a long-standing politician in the region when he said:

“You were the best mayor that he ever had the privilege of dealing with.” The long standing service program was introduced in the province of Ontario in 2004 and has since recognized over 220 politicians with at least 25 years of municipal government service. The years don’t have to be consecutive or from the same council. Fabiilli noted the Smiths Falls mayor is now in an exclusive community of mayors. There are only 55 from eastern Ontario including Westport mayor Bill Thake who has given 50 years to his community.

Hospital gets added orthopedic funding

EMC News - The following information came from the regular council meeting held Monday, Dec. 3, 2012.

Town supports one time hospital funding

In a unanimous vote Smiths Falls council added its collective voice to the growing list of communities asking the government for special one-time funding for the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital. The unspecified amount of funding, which mayor Dennis Staples didn’t suspect would be applied for until 2014, will directly relate to the deficit the hospital will have in that year. It is hoped the funding will allow the hospital to balance its books while continuing to meet the community’s health care needs. “I’m pleased that we’ll be able to add our support to this,” the mayor said.

Police cruiser approved

The Smiths Falls Police Service will be adding a new Ford Taurus marked car in the new year following pre-budget approval for the $40,000 line item. The police cruisers are on a regular rotation for replacement making this items almost an annual consideration for Council. Coun. Ken Graham noted the town doesn’t tender this purchase as it buys through a cooperative making the vehicle’s purchase a greater value for the town.

Dog Park concert

Coun. Jay Brennan invited the entire community this Sunday, Dec. 9 to the Legion on Main Street East for a free will donation concert hosted by the SFDCI Reunion Band. The evening will include a silent auction with featured items including a wine package, 67’s tickets and a $1,000 vacation. Doors open at 1 p.m. with the concert following at 2 p.m.

IT specialist promoted

Council has promoted the part-time IT services specialist for the Town of Smiths Falls to full-time status effective this week after formal approval. The former full-time staff member has moved over to provide service to the new police building leaving a hole in the municipal service. Councillors noted the parttime employee has been doing a terrific job in the role to date.

Santa Claus parade a success

Council members around the horseshoe remarked that this year’s Santa Claus parade was an absolute success with more floats and the number of participants seeming to have grown as well. They congratulated members of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 95 for their hard work in bringing this community event to town. - S.R.

EMC News - The Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital has received confirmation from the South East Local Health Integration Network (“SE LHIN”) that it will be funded for an additional 59 orthopedic joints this fiscal year, bringing the annual total to 311. This equates to an increase in funding in the amount of $387,777. The increase comes with the condition that the procedures are to be completed prior to March 31, 2013. “We are pleased with this announcement as we had planned on a reduction of 62 orthopedic procedures resulting from the new funding formula set out by the SE LHIN and Ministry of Health & Long-Term Care earlier this year,” said Linda Bisonette, president & CEO and vice president, patient care services & CNE. Recent wait time reporting indicates that the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital has a wait time for orthopedic procedures of approximately 117 days for hip replacement and 173 days for knee replacement. This is compared with the provincial average of 189 days and 227 days, respectively. “Our community has come to expect high quality services closer to home and this increase in procedures will allow a number of our residents to realize a better quality of life sooner,” stated Dr. Paul Anderson, Clinical Chief, Sur-

EMC Events - The Salvation Armyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quest to fill the table with a nutritious Christmas meal may be coming to your door Dec. 7 when local youth groups fan out in a door-to-door non-perishable and dry goods food collection campaign. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping to canvass everything south of Jasper,â&#x20AC;? said Major Faith Cameron. Between 6 and 7:30 p.m. Friday youth from a variety of church groups as well as the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts will be collecting items to build this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s many Christmas hampers. Volunteers will be carrying bags and name tags all with the Salvation Army shield on them for identification purposes. Joan Smith, a Scouts volunteer, said they are pleased to expand on their support of the Salvation Army by doing the door-to-door campaign. Each year the youth program has volunteered to pack the hampers, but this year it was felt they could reach out even more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the time of year they (Scouts) do give back to the community and this is one more thing they can do,â&#x20AC;? Smith said. The Scouts also collect pasta for churches around the holidays and this January will hold a community dinner as well. The food items being collected are greatly needed as demand for the food bank and emergency food support continues to climb across the region. Last year the Salvation Army handed out more than 817 Christmas hampers throughout the Lanark County area, 417 of those in the Smiths Falls area alone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At this point we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a whole lot yet,â&#x20AC;? Major Cameron said, adding donations are being accepted until Dec. 10. The annual holiday hampers has been a tradition of the Salvation Armyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for many years, but this is the first time they have asked the community to donate more than the change in their pockets due to rising food costs. After Dec. 10 the items will be sorted and necessary purchases will be made. In the end, the hampers will be filled with a number of items including beans in tomato sauce, soda crackers, soup, juice, cookies, canned vegetables, cranberries and stuffing to name a few. Donations are most welcome during the drive, but those wishing to

Looking Back 100 YEARS AGO - DECEMBER 3, 1912 Perth’s new soap factory will commence operations about the beginning of the new year. (An advertisement published in The Record) A coupon for a building lot in Rideau Heights for very paid up subscription to The Record. The purchase of the ten acre block in the north end, on which an option was taken a couple of months ago by Mr. Arthur J. Soper of Montreal, was completed on Friday. Mr. Soper’s father, Mr. John Soper of Brockville, came here that day and paid over the balance of the price agreed upon. Mr. John McEwen one of the syndicate owners, told the Record that he had no idea what use the land is to be put to. He had asked Mr. Soper sr. when the deal was completed but he did not know and there it rests. It may be for some industrial purpose or it may simply be for an investment. 50 YEARS AGO – DECEMBER 6, 1962 The condition of the old stone bridge on Beckwith street at Chambers street is rapidly deteriorating, according to Town Engineer M.H. Lloyd. He told members of Town Council on Tuesday evening that the arch of the bridge has dropped about one inch and is getting worse. The entry of a nine-year old Smiths Falls Cub, Barry Moss, son of Mr. and Mrs. W.E. Moss, 60 Maple avenue south, has been selected to become the official shoulder emblem of the Rideau Lakes Scouts and Cubs Association. More than 50 entries were received from adults as well as Cub and Scouts in the competition. Chief Constable Reg. Wride has cautioned motorists that new parking regulations have gone into effect on both sides of Russell street east between Beckwith and Market streets. The meter rate is now one half-hour for five cents. Pennies can no longer be used in these meters. On Main street east and west two-hour meters are in use. Motorists can park for up to two hours by inserting two nickels. 25 YEARS AGO - DECEMBER 2, 1987 Montague Township landowners fighting a proposed landfill site in the township may find themselves forced to allow testing of the site. The steering committee coordinating the area waste management master plan will ask the Minister of the Environment to invoke a section of the Environmental Assessment Act to permit access to candidate landfill sites in Drummond and Montague Townships. Old man winter returned with a vengeance last Wednesday dumping a record 28.2 cm of snow throughout the area. The previous snowfall record for Nov. 25 was 16.3 cm set in 1964. 10 YEARS AGO – DECEMBER 4, 2002 Hershey Canada Inc. has been charged by the Ministry of the Environment with what it alleges was a discharge of 23,000 litres of milk into the Rideau River at Smiths Falls. The charges allege the milk was spilled from the company’s chocolate manufacturing and processing plant here on Dec. 5, 2001. A new Montague Central School has not been designed or even approved, but already some parents want a bigger facility. Diane Bennett, co-chair of Montague school’s advisory council, told Upper Canada District School Board trustees that any new school should be built to accommodate up to 300 students. Tired of seeing crumbling ceilings, leaking roofs and buckets strategically placed to catch the drips in the front lobby and dressing rooms, a group of local parents is spearheading a petition to quicken the pace of negotiations for a new arena in Smiths Falls. Calling itself STICK & PUCC (Start Taking Interest in Community Kids & Provide Ultimate Community Centres), the petition’s preamble doesn’t mince words: “We are appalled by the condition of the arenas in Smiths Falls,” it notes.

Voting resumes for community pool EMC Editorial - We’re so close I can taste the treated water now! After a few weeks of rest the waves of support for a community swimming pool in Smiths Falls must now rise again as The Hub’s final opportunity to secure $99,000 to complete necessary repairs and upgrades to the existing pool at the Gallipeau Centre is at hand. This voting window, which runs from Dec. 3 to 12, is the community’s last chance to prove to Aviva Community Fund judges that we’re passionate for this service in town. The community’s off to a great start with the first day of voting landing the local project in the top 10, but voting needs

For the Record STACEY ROY to continue daily to ensure this edge remains until the semifinal round is complete next week. If you haven’t registered to vote please go to www.avivacommunityfund.org and do so today. You can vote once a day for the project. My passion for having this community pool comes from personal experience. As a child I developed a strong fear of water and so I never learned to swim through traditional lessons. This

wasn’t a problem until I was six years old and a relaxing swim in my aunt Donna’s pool turned frightening when I slipped at the edge of the pool and plunged into the water without any flotation support. I can still recall the way my mother looked on the other side of the water’s surface and the feeling of water rushing down my throat when I mistakenly opened my mouth to scream for help. Necessity is the mother of invention they say, so without thinking too much about it I began to kick my feet. I was almost at the stairs when my aunt (who had jumped into the water to save me) grabbed my legs and pulled me out. That’s the last time I needed floaties in the water, but I can

think of better ways for kids to learn to swim and I hope when the Smiths Falls pool opens that local children will once again have that opportunity to move beyond the doggie paddle or whichever moves come most naturally. In a community like Smiths Falls that is literally split down the middle with water it’s imperative that services such as swim classes are available locally and this grass roots approach to achieving this end is the best solution the community has had yet.

MPP challenges union’s hospital campaign DEAR EDITOR: As a staunch and ardent supporter and advocate of our local hospitals, I find this campaign by the hospital unions very concerning. I appreciate the public’s genuine concerns with changes, both real and rumoured, at the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital. However, hidden from sight in the union rhetoric and fear mongering are some essential facts that need to be illuminated. First, there has been no reduction in provincial funding of the Perth & Smiths Falls District Hospital. The hospital has taken the overdue steps of eliminating its deficit and debt which in turn will allow their funding dollars to be applied to frontline healthcare instead of interest payments on debt. It is also important to understand that the hospital’s board of directors and administration are repositioning the hospital’s priorities to meet the changing needs of our communities. Secondly, our riding of Lanark, Frontenac, Lennox & Addington has received funding for the redevelopment of two hospitals since my election in 2007 for both the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital as well as the hospital in Napanee. Although this has been a welcomed improvement, there is still much more to be done and I continue to press the ministry for

redevelopment funds for the Carleton Place hospital and a new brain injury facility in Napanee. Thirdly, there is no threat of closure of either the Smiths Falls or Perth sites of our hospital. We have a strong commitment and support for both existing campuses at the Local Health Integration Network, our local board of directors and from myself, both as a resident of the Perth area and as the MPP. The only voice that is raising the threat of a closure is the union, which has no credible evidence to justify its rhetoric, and which does a grave disservice to our residents. Lastly, we have seen an improvement in funding for homecare and Alternate Level of Care (ALC) which has allowed long term care patients to be moved out of the hospital and into their homes or more appropriate care facilities, thus alleviating the need for these patients to be residing in a hospital and providing a better environment for convalescence. It concerns me deeply to see firsthand the fear mongering being used by the union over the past few weeks. As our population ages, the time has arrived for an honest and thoughtful See LETTER page SF9

Vine Rhymes members are quick to specify that they are not a band but a group of writers and admit their performance may sometimes be a bit on the raw side - a flawless presentation is not the goal. Their mandate is to â&#x20AC;&#x153;encourage and inspireâ&#x20AC;? writers of all ages. This approach seems to have proven successful. Though the majority of the members are from the counties of Lanark and Leeds, one contributing writer resides in Morrisburg and another near Victoria, B.C.

High school receives grant to equip trades classroom By STACEY ROY sroy@perfprint.ca

EMC News – A $5,000 grant from Skills Competences Canada/Lowe’s will allow Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute (SFDCI) to bring one of its trade classrooms into the three dimensional world. The local high school’s grant project is entitled CNC Prototyping Lab and will allow it to purchase CNC components to move its AutoCAD drawings from on the screen into a physical finished product. “It’s very concrete now,” said Norm Decou, teacher at integrated technology at SFDCI. The newly purchased components include two manual mills, two manual lathes and four controller boxes that could arrive at the school as early as this week. Once they are unpacked the components will allow Decou and his students the ability to dust off the existing plastic moulding equipment that has been un-

used at the school for some time. “I think this will really give it a boost,” Decou said of the class. Students will be able to use the CNC to produce tooling and various moulding equipment to machine their projects. He hopes the ability to take a project from concept to finished product will show his students, present and future, about all the possibilities and creative pursuits that are available in the trades professions. “I’m just trying to open up the kids’ eyes to what’s out there and available,” the teacher said. The enhancement to the integrated technology class is just one more way the local high school is educating students on all their future options. This week students listened to three speakers talk about the many opportunities available in the trades profession. When Decou arrived at the school at the start of this year

he noticed the woodworking and auto shop classes were very well equipped. The addition of the CNC equipment will provide further opportunity for students in the integrated technology class to learn transferable skills such as welding, traditional machining and wood working processes to name a few. This is the first time that Decou has completed a grant application and is thrilled with the results. “It was a very nice surprise,” he added. “This was pretty significant for us.” According to the Skills Canada website, the grant is designed to engage students and teachers to improve their school campus, curriculum delivery or surrounding community. Decou submitted his grant application in early October and was one of three tri-county schools to receive funding. Gananoque Secondary School received $7,000 while the Seaway District High School was granted $5,000.

The high school glee club got its start last year when it received an arts fund grant of $8,000. Last year the group attended more than a dozen events and has almost matched this in just the few months of operation this school year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The demand has really come along,â&#x20AC;? MacLaren said. Audiences at local schools, fundraising events and other special occasions will be familiar with the group. On Dec. 12 the glee club will hold its own Christmas concert at SFDCI at 7 p.m. followed by elementary school visits the following day to spread the good cheer. Tickets for the Dec. 14 and 15 shows are available at the door that evening. Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for students.

Fitness centre marks expansion with grand re-opening Dec. 8 By STACEY ROY sroy@perfprint.ca

EMC Business - A business philosophy around supporting each client who comes through their doors in attaining their personal fitness goals while reaching out to the community has allowed ZenDragon Martial Arts and Fitness Centre to expand into a new downtown location. Business owner Brian Paquette welcomes the community to celebrate this milestone in the business this Saturday, Dec. 8 at 11 a.m. when a formal ribbon-cutting will take place at the new location inside the Giant Tiger mall. “We were too full,” Paquette said of the move. The Smiths Falls fitness

centre marked its first anniversary inside its almost 5,000 square foot facility Dec. 1. Paquette hopes to one day offer goal-setting sessions to the public to encourage others to realize their dreams as he did. “That is how we ended up here in less than a year,” he said. The new facility allows for a full gym to be set up on the main floor with the martial arts studio below on the secondary level. The expansion aims to address client requests for a downtown gym facility in Smiths Falls while giving owners the opportunity to ultimately expand on their program offerings and enhance

the family-friendly environment the gym continues to foster. The first step toward this end is offering a night or two a week of free parent and tot play groups. This will be an opportunity for local families to get into the gym environment with their young ones and be active in a safe environment. ZenDragon will continue to offer its family membership program to encourage the entire family to get out and be active together. The ZenDragon is open Monday to Friday 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., Saturday 10 .m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Smiths Falls & District Crime Stoppers launched its new stickers program at the Memorial Community Centre last week. In front (left to right) are Chuck Hudson, Millie O’Neal, and Rick Kirkwood. Standing (left to right) are Jackie Coldrey, Ron Stronski, police chief Robert Dowdall, Jack Anderson, Const. Dave Murphy and Smiths Falls mayor Dennis Staples. He noted that while the police department works in collaboration with Crime Stoppers, he stressed that the group is not run by the police, but by civilians. When one phones Crime Stoppers, a police officer is not at the other end of the line, but a neighbour. As a police officer, however, Murphy says he is glad that they are there.

R0011796179_1206

EMC News – Crime Stoppers will be sticking it to criminals, as usual. In actual fact, the sticking will be done to civic buildings around Smiths Falls like the Smiths Falls Memorial Community Centre and Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute (SFDCI). “For the last number of years, we put up these signs,” said Const. Dave Murphy of the Smiths Falls Police Service at the kick-off for the sticker campaign at the community centre on Tuesday, Nov. 27. “We decided as a committee that we would do something beyond that and that was to get these stickers put up.” They intentionally picked high-traffic areas like SFDCI and the arena to make their mark because “you’re capturing people in and out of these doors all of the time,” said Murphy, and not only Smiths Falls residents at that. The Smiths Falls and District Crime Stoppers covers the 283 and 284 exchanges, and the stickers are also part of the group’s 25th anniversary celebrations, “which is quite the milestone,” added Murphy.

Church and Family Go Together

“If Crime Stoppers wasn’t there, we wouldn’t solve as many crimes as we do,” said Murphy. “I’ve used it, and it is great.” While the Crime Stoppers groups in Ottawa and Lanark County have taken the unusual step of asking for municipal financial support to keep their lines open, Smiths Falls has been in somewhat of a health-

ier financial situation. “Money is always a concern,” admitted secretary Jack Anderson, but this is offset by their fundraising, like their end-of-January fundraising dance. “We have ongoing expenses, but it is completely non-profit. We’ve never gone looking for municipal funding.”

Town mechanic qualifies for 2013 world duathlon race By STACEY ROY sroy@perfprint.ca

EMC Sports - For years Dan Trudel has kept his family front of mind during his many running excursions through town. Next summer his family will be at the finish line of the world duathlon race in Ottawa to celebrate the local manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first time as a member of team Canada. The Aug. 10 to 12 event in the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital is expected to be a challenging competition with the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best where participants will be asked to run 10 km, bike 40 km and run another 5 km to the finish line. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will be a lot of fun for sure,â&#x20AC;? Trudel said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I never thought Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d ever be on team Canada.â&#x20AC;? The career mechanic and owner of an auto body company on Hwy. 15 outside Smiths Falls picked up his childhood love of bicycling in the mid2000s when he bought a second hand bike for $50. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I never really intended to go this far. For me itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about staying healthy,â&#x20AC;? Trudel said. Since finding his passion in the sport, Trudel has noticed an increase in energy and a significant improvement in his heart and lung health overall. Trudel can often be seen running in town year around regardless of cold. Despite having his face mask freeze one time, the local man insists on covering about 20 km each week.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had my water bottles freeze on me,â&#x20AC;? he said. The manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enjoyment in getting out and pounding the pavement ultimately led him to sign up for the 2007 duathlon in Smiths Falls where he was bitten by the competitive bug and he hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t looked back. When asked about his development in the sport to date, Trudel said the support he has received from those in the community has been incredible, noting the Smiths Falls area is very much a place where people get out to be active. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are very fortunate to have a community that is so active in tri-sports. Every day you can see people running and biking around town,â&#x20AC;? Trudel said. Today, he competes in about 10 races a season and runs about 1,000 km a year while putting in 4,000 km a year on his bike. In fact, it was Trudelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impressive 2011-2012 race record that earned him the spot on team Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roster next summer. This year has been a year of many firsts, including the first marathon in Cumberland where he came just two minutes shy of qualifying for the Boston marathon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was actually pleased with the outcome, which is just seeing the finish line,â&#x20AC;? Trudel said. He hopes to compete in the Ottawa marathon next year

and qualify for the Boston marathon at that time. Close calls like the Cumberland race only serve to light a fire under Trudel who uses these experiences as inspiration to overcome the shortfall in future. That is what happened last year when the local man competed in his first half iron man competition. His enthusiasm to give it all he had left him short going into the final 20 km run to the finish line resulting in an incomplete. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was that race that I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t finish that made me want to finish,â&#x20AC;? Trudel said. This year he signed up once more for the iron man and came in fourth overall. Competing on this level takes a physical toll on your body. Trudel expects to hit the wall about two-thirds the way into the competition, but says he draws on thoughts of his family to get him to the finish line. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to find your happy place,â&#x20AC;? he said. Training has already begun for Trudel in preparation for the 2013 competition. He plans to connect with a coach for the event and start to take advantage of competitive training systems and technology aids such as heart meters to be on par with his competitors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Boy theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re fast,â&#x20AC;? Trudel said of his international competition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got some work ahead of me for sure.â&#x20AC;?

Figure skating carnival moves to this Saturday By STACEY ROY sroy@perfprint.ca

EMC Sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The annual Rideau Lakes Figure Skating Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Carnival show has moved up to Dec. 8 this year with the timely theme of a skating tribute to the holiday season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will be all about the reindeer, snowmen and snowflakes,â&#x20AC;? said Becky Kavanagh, club president. The show will begin at 2 p.m. at the Memorial Community Centre and tickets are available at the door for $5. The annual show is an opportunity for club skaters to be in the spotlight and demonstrate the skills they have developed over the last year. Often done in February, the club has decided to host the carnival show this month to allow the club executive to prepare to host the regional competition in the new year.

This Feb. 29 skate clubs from eastern Ontario will be represented by approximately 300-400 skaters who will compete for the top spot in each category. More details on this competition will be available closer to the event. During the carnival show Dec. 8 every student from the toddlers to the competitive dancers will be on the ice celebrating the season with their own unique holiday numbers. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guest skater will be the Rideau Skate Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Andriyko Goyaniuk of Ottawa. This young manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s personal story of struggle and triumph has inspired many in the athletic world and underlines the importance of goal setting and dedication. In 2010 Goyaniukâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s figure skating career hit a glass ceiling when his inability to land a double axel left him behind in the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pre-novice singles

competition. Knowing he had to nail this move or walk away from his competitive skating career, Goyaniuk committed himself to the task and in 13 months came back to competition with a double axel in the bag. His performances have since seen him at the top of the podium at various regional competitions and the future looks very bright indeed for this passionate skater. After so much inspiration this Saturday skaters and their families will be invited to a special family skate after the show. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will be a very family friendly event afterwards,â&#x20AC;? Kavanagh said. Christmas music and hot chocolate will round out this holiday celebration at the club, so family and friends of club members are reminded to bring their skates to the show!

EMC News - Last week, Studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Council started an event called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Stop the Munksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, where every day during lunch and in between classes they would play the Chipmunkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Jingle Bellsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; until $1,500 from students and teachers was collected. To do this Studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Council asked

Red & White that each student donate $2. There is a collection container in each home room and the office for donations to be deposited in. The class that collects the most money the previous week has the

privilege to choose the next Chipmunk song or keep â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Jingle Bellsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; going for the next week. When the $1,500 is reached the Chipmunk music will finally stop. All money will be donated to Canadian Feed the Children.

er, SFDCI held penny wars, where the goal was to be the class that raised the most points. Points were given for pennies, and taken away for any other money put in the jar. Other classes were able to sabotage classes by putting different change (nick-

els, dimes, and quarters) in the jars. For each cent of the other change they would lose that many points. Mr. Thompsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s class won first place for points and Mr. Merredewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s class collected the most money. In total, the school raised $1400.

Canadian Feed the Children â&#x20AC;&#x153;provides nutritional support, education, health, and livelihoodâ&#x20AC;?. Their goal is to help children have happier, healthier lives. More information can be found at http://www.canadianfeedthechildren.ca/.

Law enforcement officers have some fun for the kids By LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Children in four elementary schools are having an early Christmas gift thanks to the hockey prowess of some law enforcement officers. The fourth annual Kidz and Kops Police Charity Hockey Tournament on Nov. 28 raised $2,000 to be split equally between Chimo, Duncan J. Schoular, St. Francis de Sales and St. James the Greater schools in Smiths Falls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kidsâ&#x20AC;Ś itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about the kids; not big kids like teenagersâ&#x20AC;Ś the little guys,â&#x20AC;? said Const. Mike Gallagher, one of three Smiths Falls Police Service officers who helped coordinate this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tournament. Organized by the Smiths Falls Police Association, he was joined by constables Dan King and Adam Slate, both on ice (the local police forceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hockey team is the Copperheads) and off. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had 10 teams in the tournament this year, which is great, said Const. King. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From registration fees, we are able to raise the money to give to our local schools. Each one received $500.â&#x20AC;? Two Upper Canada District School Board principals were on hand to receive the funds.

Midget B Cubs are tourney champions in Peterborough EMC Sports - After finishing round robin play with two wins and a tie, it would be a tie breaking percentage that would earn the Cubs the first place spot and a bye to the final round. There would be no better way to reaffirm their skill, strength and character than to meet the team they had tied in the round robin one more time in the final game. The Cubs commanded the championship victory with a powerful 7-0 win. The strong offensive play of forwards Reba Cassell,

Katie Brady, McKenzie Ryan, Cassidy Nadeau, Megan McCoy, Nicole McKenna, Brooklyn Scott, Elizabeth Holmes and Bree Peladeau combined with the sturdy defensive core of Brittany MacGillivray, Nicole Robinson, Hannah Knott and Paige Dorey and solid goaltending from Annie West continue to serve the team well. With an impressive 8-0-5 record and seven games to go in regular season play the Cubs continue to hold the top spot in their ODWHA division. Submitted photo

The Smiths Falls midget B Cubs blew away their competition to win the Peterborough tournament.

EMC Sports - Ex-RedHawks Dominic Code and Dischaine Thompson continued the individual success graduating RedHawk football players have had at the next level. Both players have followed recent players such as Dylan Howes, Tyler Thibault, Gary Graham and Vince Dufort by taking their success at the high school level

and transferring it by making their respective university teams. Running back Thompson is at McGill University taking nursing while linebacker Code is in Human Kinetics at the University of Ottawa. Dominic and Dischaine were very successful during their high school years. Each athlete played both junior and senior football while

also winning individual awards along with the 2009 Lanark-Renfrew championship and the 2010 Lanark title. In addition they also played in the Ontario Varsity Football League with the Kingston Grenadiers.

Four-point weekend solidifies top spot for Smiths Falls Bears By LAURIE WEIR ljweir@metroland.com

Bears 7 Rangers 2 At home against the Rangers Friday, it was a duel through the first two periods with the teams trading goals in a steady, but chippy meeting. Smiths Falls got on the board first with Patrick Sexton’s goal, but not until the 13:35 mark. He was assisted

by McLaren and Carroll on the goal. Gloucester tied things with Patrick White’s unassisted marker just two minutes later. With 7:58 showing in the second, the Rangers took its only lead of the game when Christian Leger scored. Cameron Romoff didn’t let that lead hold for long as he scored from McLaren and Carroll less than a minute later to tie the game at two. That’s where things stood at the end of 40 minutes. The third period was all Bears with the team’s five unanswered goals – the first one by Jesse Blais just 26 seconds after the puck dropped to start the period. McLaren and Carroll were credited with the helpers. Carroll scored the insurance marker on the power play two minutes later with Cameron Romoff and Chris Maniccia helping out. Romoff scored two of his own to seal the victory (and his first hat trick) while Abu-

Ali had the other goal. Assists on the final three were credited to Carroll, McLaren, Peter Soligo, Costello and Yannick Crete. Home games are on tap for the Bears this week, with a Friday night meeting against Carleton Place at 7:30 p.m. and a Sunday afternoon show against Ottawa Senators at 2:30 p.m. Results from Tuesday night’s home against Brockville were unavailable at press time. OVERTIME: • The Bears completed a couple of big deals with the Kemptville 73’s just prior to the trade freeze Dec. 1. The club has acquired emerging star forward, 17-yearold Blaine Byron along with 20-year-old Jake Butler. In exchange, the Bears surrendered talented 1- year-old forward Jesse Blais, 18-year-old Cole Allard and the rights to Dean Galasso. Byron, from Manotick, made an immediate impression on his new

team, scoring an insurance goal in the Bears 3-0 win in Pembroke Sunday night. • Smiths Falls also acquired defenceman Patrick Crampton from the Hawkesbury Hawks and then traded him to the 73’s for big 1- yearold defenceman Jesse Lussier (6-3, 186 lbs.) as well as the rights to Brandon Lesway. • Goalie Patrick Martin’s remarkable turnaround continues. After a slow start to his year, the veteran netminder has been on fire – with only one or two exceptions – of late. He added his fifth shutout of the season on Sunday (no other goalie has more than three) and now posts a 2.91 goals against average and .910 save percentage. He also leads the league in wins with 16.

EMC Sports – A third period explosion gave the Smiths Falls Jr. A Bears a 7-2 win over the Gloucester Rangers at home Friday night in CCHL action in front of 627 fans at the Smiths Falls Memorial Community Centre. A second weekend win over Pembroke, (20-11-1-1 for 42 points and third place in the Yzerman division) was a shutout victory to the tune of 3-0. This has solidified the Bears lead in the Robinson division with a 23-9-0-1 record for 47 points. The four-point weekend has given the Bears a six-point edge over the second place Carleton Place Canadians who have now lost three straight. Patrick Martin earned the shutout Sunday in Pembroke turning away all 28 shots in the full 60 minutes played. Goals came in each period from Nolan Trombetta in the first, Karson McCartney in the second and Blaine Byron – an up-and-coming star forward acquired last week from the Kemptville 73’s in one of two deals made just prior to the Dec. 1 trade freeze – in the final frame. Assists on the night were credited to Adam Abu-Ali, Brett Costello, Daniele Disipio, Tyler Akeson, Connor McLaren and Jeff Carroll. Smiths Falls outshot Pembroke 40-28. Referee Chad White had a relatively quiet whistle as he tagged each team for 10 minutes on five minor infractions.

Beatrice Wright 100 Years Beatrice has experienced a lot in her one hundred years. To help celebrate the special occasion (November 11) she enjoyed a party with her family at her daughters. Bea was born Diana Beatrice Truelove outside of Perth, Ontario (Tennyson Road). She is the youngest of three children born to Diana Innis and William Truelove. She and her brother Arthur and sister Isobel grew up on a farm attending a one room school house. She stayed in Perth during the week with her Aunt Bella when she was in high school. She worked as a domestic helper before her marriage in 1940 to Clarence Kenneth Learmonth (Ken). They welcomed their daughter Marjorie the following year and moved into their home at 41 Lombard Street when she was a year old. Norma was born a few years later completing the family. She lost her husband in a tragic train derailment while at work in 1953. Needless to say life changed drastically for her. She went out in the work force a few years afterwards working first at Gemmell’s Flowers and then on to Rideau Regional until her retirement. Bea loved her home and enjoyed gardening (the farmer came out). She spent many hours in her flower and vegetable gardens. Bea was known for her euchre skills and always enjoyed a game. Many euchre parties were attended, along with home parties with friends and family. Bea is blessed with five grandchildren and five great grandchildren and is very involved in their lives. To this day they are all very close. A lot of time was spent at Beverly Lake in the summers when her grandchildren were growing up. Bea met and married Edward Wright and moved to his home on Elm Street in 1975. He was a much loved addition to her family. They enjoyed their home, many trips, gardening, cards and family. Most of all they enjoyed each others company no matter what they were doing. Unfortunately it was to end ten years later when Ed passed away. For the most part she enjoyed good health. She was hospitalized in the late fifties with Hepatitis A. Years later she became jaundiced and underwent an exploratory operation to find the cause. Her liver had been badly damaged and was almost non functioning. With her faith and determination she recovered months later. There was a slight heart attack and an esophogus problem which she was also hospitalized for over the years. Again her faith saw her through. Bea has been a member of Trinity United Church for seventy two years. She attended Sunday service regularly until she experienced a loss of hearing and wasn’t able to follow. Norma: My Mother was always there for me above and beyond. A devoted Mother, a friend to many. She is the most satisfied person I have ever known. It is safe to say she enriched many lives over her 100 years. Thanks Mom. We all love you dearly.

Perfect for Christmas gifts. Something for everyone!

DUFFY - In memory of a very special wife, Hazel Duffy, who passed away November 29, 1997. If tears could build a stairway, And memories a lane, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d walk right up to Heaven And bring you home again. It is lonely here without you, I miss you more each day, For life is not the same for me, Since you were called away. It broke my heart to lose you, But you did not go alone, For part of me went with you, The day God called you Home. I seem to see in the soft dim light, A face I loved the best, And think of her when the suns last rays, Goes down in the far off west. Lovingly remembered Murray

EMC - Your Community Newspaper

How would you wrap a goat for the holidays? EMC news - It’s that time of year again when we struggle to find unique holiday gift ideas for everyone on our shopping lists. Giving a charitable gift through Plan Canada’s Gifts of Hope is a great way to give back during the holidays and help a family or community in need. Gifts of Hope support real projects that change lives in developing countries. Whether it is clean water for a family, a mango tree for a classroom to teach children gardening skills, or a goat that will provide milk, nourishment, and a source of income for a family, these gifts are perfect for anyone on your list: teachers, coworkers, friends and family, and even party hosts. The Plan Canada Gifts of Hope catalogue offers an assortment of more than 40 items for all budgets and includes choices for all faiths and cultures during the holiday season. They are also a great way to engage young

children and friends in global issues and challenges, while also giving them an opportunity to make a difference. But, how do you wrap a goat or a mango tree? When you purchase Plan Canada Gifts of Hope, you can also select a personalized gift card for the person you are honouring that includes a photo and description of the gift. Here are some additional ways to “wrap a goat” and add some fun to this gift-giving idea: * Goat ($75) What you’re really giving: A goat provides milk for a family: protein, nourishment and health. Just imagine what a herd could do for a community. This gift provides the possibility of a livelihood, an income and the ability to make choices about the future. How to wrap it: Pair the gift card with luxurious goat’s milk soap and cream, or for the foodie on your list, a goat’s cheese, a cheese board and cheese knives. Alternatively,

the * Herd of goats ($775) Gifts of Hope makes a fantastic group or office gift. * Newborn check-up ($12) What you’re really giving: This gift supports the important work of community health workers who visit moms and their newborn babies within the first three days of the baby’s birth - a critical time. The visit helps to ensure the baby is thriving and growing, and the mother is healthy and recovering well from delivery. In communities where health care centres are difficult to access and newborn mortality rates are far too high, this gift saves lives. How to wrap it: A great gift for new parents – the gift card can be paired with a baby bottle, receiving blanket, onesie or a bib. You could also present the Gifts of Hope Birth certificate ($25) the same way. * Mango tree ($15) What you’re really giving: When mango trees are planted as a key element in

school garden programs, children learn useful gardening and agricultural skills while caring for them. Their juicy and nutritious fruit is shared among the students as an incentive to come to school. Picture lush mango trees growing in schoolyards and allowing children to focus on their studies instead of their hunger. How to wrap it: Pair the gift card with a mason jar filled with tasty dried mangoes and top with festive holiday fabric. You could also give a jar of mango jam or chutney. * Classroom essentials for one child ($17) What you’re really giving: It may be called a classroom, but without the essentials that make learning possible, it is just a room. Help stock it with chalkboards, maps, desks, chairs, textbooks, pencils and paper. How to wrap it: Tuck the gift card into a journal with pens and pencils or with a great new book. You could
